This label don't even reply when suggested to address people that are the artists/owners of the music they are putting out. Why don't you write down the names of artists and track titles in most of releases?

Bootleg label that doesn't even care to try to licence the music they put out. 100% unofficial.

On one hand, the songs that this label selects and curates fro their releases are interesting and undoubtedly rare and hard to find stuff. However, it is pretty sad to see that in their own webstore they base the prices of left over stock on the ridiculous over inflated prices set by gougers on discogs. To clarify, I expect individual sellers to make inflated prices; that's their prerogative; it's a sellers market, but for a bootleg label to base the price of new stock on these prices is a joke. This shameless profiteering from the uncredited work of others exemplifies a depressing capitalist attitude and for that reason I will choose to no longer support this label.

The two Sherm comps bring together '70s transworld funk b-sides, obscure psych-ish tracks and frantic over-modded soul-shakers.
They are good - but they aren't the best from the label.
The superior stuff is to be found on the Danger Electrified Tracks and eponymously titled Light Sounds Dark comps. The label dug pretty deep to collect this stuff together. Weird electro sides from obscure early '80s cassette releases and forgotten album tracks by ultra-obscuro bedroom synth exponents.

The best LSD release is 'WYWH', the three vinyl mirrored monolith. This blink-and-you-missed-it release had the lifespan of a mayfly in the online shops before it disappeared and the price immediately doubled. Even that proved to be a bargain as in recent weeks the price has yet again soared towards the £100 mark.
What you get is a bunch of completely anonymous tracks by unknown artists (just starting to be listed on the WYWH Discogs page). Once again it seems as if '80s electro outfits have been exhumed. By disc 2 we are in hitherto unknown sonic territory as two lengthy minimal desert-jazz pieces dominate proceedings. Deep, extended jams that could go on forever as far as I'm concerned. Great listening.

I should issue one caveat - I believe that the label is unofficial although they do ask at least on a couple of their releases for people to contact them regarding royalities. So - it depends upon your conscience whether you wish to indulge in this stuff.

In the internet age when music has lost a lot of its mystery.... it does me good to contemplate the LSD label and its weirdly curated series of oddities.

I See LSD015 is missing from the discography - I wonder what it was?
