In an effort to make our discography more streamlined and navigable, we have re-organized our various bandcamp pages so that everything can be more easily found on the Broken Spine page under the individual project names. We’ve also separated Nadja and Aidan Baker albums proper from collaborations and live/digital-only releases via their own sub-pages.

Our forthcoming album Luminous Rot from Southern Lord Records is now available for pre-order in a variety of formats and permutations.

The red and black vinyl or cd, and a new t-shirt, are all available on our bandcamp page – but please note this will be shipping from the US and not directly from us in Berlin. If you are in North America and want to take advantage of an album/shirt bundle, here pictured, then visit the Southern Lord Store.


If you are in Europe, the cd, black and yellow edition are available from Southern Lord Europe or, if you’d like a shirt or album/shirt bundle, visit our friends at Haus Nostromo based here in Berlin.


Lastly, the Japanese CD edition of the album, which comes with a bonus track, is available directly from Daymare Recordings.

The Year That Wasn’t

12/10/2020 § Leave a comment

Except it was. Of course, 2020 has been a difficult year for everyone but we have been lucky enough to sneak in a couple short tours before the pandemic hit, play a smattering of shows over the summer and fall, and scrape by with your, our listeners, support. To that end, below is a summary of our 2020 releases, for the completists out there who might have missed something, many of which are available as free or pay-what-you-can downloads:

AIDAN BAKER – solo & various collaborations from Broken Spine, Consouling Sounds, Gizeh Records, Karlrecords, A Red Thread / Torn Light Records, Grisaille, & Utility Tapes:

NADJA – we released a couple live recordings & a remix collection this year, but nothing brand new (apart from the physical LP edition of Stripped)…however, there will be a new full-length from us, Luminous Rot, in 2021 – stay tuned for details:

HYPNODRONE ENSEMBLE – Aidan’s collaborative space-/drone-/krautrock ensemble with Thisquietarmy released a live album with Midira Records & a new full-length (completed remotely during lockdown) with a total of 15 musicians on Wolves & Vibrancy Records:

WERL – Aidan’s collaborative duo with drummer Tomas Järmyr released a live cassette with Katuktu Collective &, performing as a trio with bass-clarinetist Gareth Davis, a live LP on Midira Records:

Here’s hoping 2021 shapes up to be a better year – stay strong, stay healthy!
