News and New Releases

Album In A Day volume 10 - 22 August 2015

Out now!

On Saturday 22nd August 2015, musicians from around the world each wrote and recorded a complete new song, from scratch in one day.

The next day, these songs were collected and put together as an album.

The day after that, the album was released as a free/name-your-price download under a Creative Commons licence!

These albums are always a lot of fun. We never know what we are going to get but having so little time seems to energize musicians into creating something that some would normally work on for weeks.

The result is a wonderful mix of a whole range of music from musicians around the world, all completely written, performed and recorded on Saturday 22nd August 2015.

44 tracks - over 4 hours of brand new music.

A massive thank you to all the musicians who took part.

Enjoy the album - and please share!

Release date: 24 August 2015



Cousin Silas - Foreshore

Prolific ambient musician and Yorkshireman, Cousin Silas returns to BFW with an album of deep, lush ambience. One beautiful longform piece, peaceful and dreamy.

Release date: 25 July 2015

Bing Satellites - Rain

Released as part of the very first Netlabel Day

An album of abstract ambient music inspired by city life on my home town of Manchester, UK.

Manchester is a busy, cosmopolitan university city. A city that has been the birthplace of so much science, music, art, political struggle and so much more besides, something that we proud Mancunians are not afraid to boast about.

This is not a chillout album, although some will find the abstract soundscapes relaxing, It is not quiet. It is an album of urban noise, slowly churning and changing. An attempt to share the experience of living near the centre of a busy city.

This will not be the last of these albums.

Release date: 14 July 2015

"Think MK Ultra, think mind control, think Manchurian Candidate."

Release date: 27 June 2015

Poodleplay Arkestra - Monochrome Birds

It is with great cheer that we welcome the return of Manchester's very own Poodleplay Arkestra.

Treat yourself! Listen and download!
