  • Blackest Ever Black is shutting down. The London label run by Kiran Sande is closing after nearly a decade with a final compilation, A short illness from which he never recovered. The ten-track LP has been on Bandcamp since April, but the label's closure was confirmed by Sande's East London record store, Low Company, when announcing the vinyl edition earlier this month and was further amplified by Boomkat this week. Featured artists include Carla dal Forno, Scythe, Bridget Hayden, Hypnotic Sleep and Ian Martin. Part of the Bandcamp description reads, "If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you." Revisit our Label Of The Month feature on Blackest Ever Black from 2011. Listen to Scythe's "Flower, Drop."
