Antilectual Recordings is proud to announce the release of Reeve Schumacher's self-titled EP. - This Limited Edition of 30 lathe-cut records contains music so disturbingly beautiful I'm okay with the world coming to an end now! But before it does, snag yourself a copy, take a listen, and just get weird.

Also on the Antilectual roster, a limited run of 15 records and prints from Miami's own, Dirtlos (aka Carlos Stincer), features experimental electronic tracks as sticky and hot as the damn weather down here. Don't worry, your Mommy will still love you despite your listening habits. Get it NOW!!!!

If that's not enough for ya, still available in limited quantity, Kyle Trowbridge's self-titled picture-disc. This freshmen release started it all with his busker style foot drums, rabid guitar playing and screaming like a child without dessert. There's only one way to play this record, LOUD! Get 'em while they're still available!

100% of all proceeds from the sale of these editions and merchandise will fund future releases by other guest artists involved with the Antilectual Recordings Project. Antilectual serves to document this unheard side of our extremely talented community of visual artists.

THE ANTILECTUAL MISSION

For years I have been a practicing artist and professor of art living and working in Miami, Florida. While I have dedicated much of my life to these pursuits, I have always had a passion for music. With childhood influences steeped in punk rock and skateboard culture, it is not surprising that I remain attracted to all things DIY.

Over the last twenty years, while pursuing a professional art career and honing my craft, I have met many individuals and other artists that are multi-talented and engaged in far more than just the practices they are recognized for publicly. While having the good fortune of befriending many of these artists, there was always a common thread that seemed to dominate our conversation. The assumption would be the production of fine art itself, but rarely did these individuals like talking shop. Instead, I noticed a trend that repeatedly included passionate discussions about all things concerning music. Besides different genres, obscure bands and collecting; many times it would pivot to the making and production of music as an artistic endeavor. For most of us, there was no real desire to take it any further than the confines of our bed rooms.

Ironically, music seems to have become a surrogate outlet of freedom that our respective disciplines no longer provide. We have become victims of our own careers. Making music reminds us of a time when a bit of ignorance was relished and we made things simply for the sake of creation. It is my belief that most of us are engaged in making music because it provides a platform of pure and honest expression, as well as a healthy distraction from our normal studio practices.

The more I pondered this, the more important I realized it was to document this musical output. I appreciate your support greatly and hope you enjoy seeing/hearing another side to myself and other visual artists associated with the Anitlectual Recording Project. All proceeds made from the sale of these limited edition records and merchandise will directly fund the production of the next. There are many more releases to come in the near future. I hope you are as excited as I am!

Enjoy,
