John Talabot's Hivern Label Launches 'Blanc' Series, Shares First Installment
- Words: Rebecca Bratburd
Hivern, the John Talabot-helmed record label, is poised to release a series of 12"s featuring uncredited cuts from the outpost's pool of producers. Since 2008, the label has built a roster that now boasts Teengirl Fantasy, Aster, New Jackson, Pional, the label head himself, and others—artists who are all potential candidates for Hivern's forthcoming Blanc records. Each single-sided, "white-label" release will be limited to 100 copies, and will only be available from the imprint's online store and select record stores. The first offering, "It's All Over," is a subdued house track steeped in moody vocals, pinprick percussion, and bubbling atmospheres, and is available to stream in the player below. Hivern will release the 12" on April 22.
