The year is 2019. Full Spectrum Records is 10 years old and we are just as astonished as you are.
If we’re being honest, there was never any real “plan” when we started pushing CD-R releases out of a Greensboro, NC apartment all those years ago. Frankly, we still don’t have one.
Yet today – after years of stumbling evolution and searching creative detours – our humble imprint functions both as a multi-faceted community that reaches across geographic barriers and a self-defensive barrier against a broken, exploitative music industry. In a world that actively seeks to isolate us all, the Full Spectrum catalog is the thread that ties the label’s artists together, weaving bonds across our disparate hometowns and music scenes.
Where some might perceive a sprawling and aesthetically confusing mess, we see bright lights glinting off the surface of a dense and textured mosaic. Put bluntly: fuck a highly curated aesthetic.
To celebrate this auspicious milestone and illustrate our point, we present Infinite Futures. A sprawling collection of sonic curios that brings together artists from throughout our label’s history who – for the most part – have not previously recorded or performed together. This experiment in reinforcing the relationships that Full Spectrum is built upon functions as a reset on our trip odometer and a furtive look towards the future. There’s not always a lot to gain by looking back, but there’s a hell of a lot of road ahead.
Thank you to everybody who’s let us release their work and that will let us release their work in the future. Gratitude and praise for everyone who has hosted our artists for a show or bought us a beer on the road. We’ve been at it for 10 years. We still have no idea what we’re doing, but we’ll see you soon. For a better 2moro!
