Labradford biography
Founded in Richmond, Virginia, U.S. in 1992 - Disbanded in 2001

LABRADFORD was an ambient/post rock trio consisting of Robert Donne (bass), Mark Nelson (Guitars, vocals), and Carter Brown (Keyboards) who began making music together in the early nineties. Like their label mates Stars of the Lid and The dead Texan, LABRADFORD focus more on lush electronic ambient soundscapes than on dynamic, and heavily structured songs. contrary to most ambient groups though, Labradford focus on electric guitar effects such as delay and reverb, giving off more of a post rock feel. Also, the music tends to be more defined than most ambient groups, with fewer drone passages, and more solid percussive and orchestral songs.

LABRADFORD has released Five albums; Prazision (1993), A stable Reference (1994), Labradford (1996), Mi Media Naranja (1998), and Fixed Content (2001). They have also released a batch of EP's and compilation material. Since their last album though, they've been on hiatus, and the status on whether or not the group will join together again is unsure. Recommended for fans of ambient and post rock fans alike!

E Luxo So
Labradford Post Rock/Math rock

Review by Lewian

3 stars This is a slow and fairly minimalist atmospheric instrumental album. The tracks are all rhythmic although there are no drums; sometimes percussive electronic sounds are used, and sometimes the rhythm is carried by repeated motifs of guitar or piano or sometimes electronic keyboard. The music is all quite harmonic and muted and mostly in melancholic minor. It's truly "post rock" in the sense that the band creates soundscapes rather than songs, but they do it in a rather warm and accessible way. There is this fun idea to get the song names from basically splitting up the credits into six parts, with which I can sympathise, knowing very well the struggle to name instrumentals that are not meant to have a meaning that would be expressible in words. The band underlines in this way the orientation toward atmosphere instead of song structure. It's the whole, not the parts, that counts. What I like about this album is that regarding the arrangements and the use of the instruments there is quite a bit of variation between the tracks. The music is certainly good for a melancholic mood and for meditative listening. Personally I have to say that for this kind of music I prefer a bit more mystery and a bit less reliance on conventional harmonies without all too fascinating ideas or melodies; the album is good at what it tries to be, but it doesn't do too much magic for me.

Review by d.o.k

5 stars fixed::context is in my opinion THE Labradford masterpiece, and an ambient masterpiece as well. After including sometimes strings in their previous albums, fixed::content goes more stripped. Great slow guitar sounds, organ, discreet bass and some electronic sound make an incredible album. How to describe in a simple manner the joy of this album ? ... Well, there is this 9th minute in the first track, Twenty (18min+ long). What happened in this 9th minute ? There is simply the arrival of the second guitar, just a few notes. But what a moment! That makes the track getting bigger while at the same time this is just a pleasant, reverbed and slow guitar.

Remember this is a masterpiece. Don't stop after the first listen, when it seems to be just a nice ambient thing with mellow sounds. This thing will grow in you (well at least if you're an ambient amateur!), you'll learn every notes, every beat, every sounds. You'll wait for that 2nd guitar at the 9th minute of Twenty ! It easily ranks at the same levels of the Brian Eno best works.

Thanks to Dim for the artist addition. and to Quinino for the last updates
