Auricle image

Auricle was originally a cassette label established by experimental musicians, collectors, journalist/writers: Alan & Steve Freeman from Leicester, England in 1986. It was launched (replacing Dark Star) to coincide with the first issue of Audion Magazine. Later, the label was resurrected/re-invented as a CD-R label.
Auricle has issued lots of exclusive releases by various Freeman brothers projects, as well diverse international talent in the realms of underground and experimental music. Auricle has championed many unknowns that have since become famous.
All Auricle releases are official and authorised by agreements/contracts the musicians and/or licensed from them or their agents. Most are made in small edition runs, many in numbered/limited editions.

    As you can't buy downloads via Discogs there is no convenient way of locating and correlating them here are a list. The closest we have is solved by this piece of ugly code:

    There is also a Downloads page on the Ultima Thule web site, which has an index of all the relevant Bandcamp and RouteNote pages for Auricle, Cosmic Egg and Ultimate Transmissions downloads.
