2182 kHz was used as the distress frequency on shortwave radio.  The Recording Company was certainly borne out of this spirit, but not everything you hear or see will be distressing.

kHz - 1001 — Sir Richard Bishop and W. David Oliphant - Beyond All Defects

Pre-Order -- Releasing April 26, 2019


This was composed and recorded live in the studio in Phoenix, AZ in December of 2011. The sonic landscapes presented here find their origins in Tibet, and are heavily inspired by Tibetan Buddhism -- specifically the body of teachings known as Dzogchen. Many of the musical ideas for this project were literally derived from dreams the night before they were created. The remaining ideas were formed centuries ago. Sir Richard Bishop plays acoustic guitar throughout. Often detuned, bowed, and beaten, the guitar was "treated" by Oliphant during the live recording process. SRB also provided audio from field recordings he captured in India. WDO used a variety of computer software with a midi controller to create all the other sounds. All tracks were captured in real-time, direct to disk. The recording was mastered by Mark Gergis in the summer of 2018.  Limited edition clear 180g vinyl.

kHz - 1002 — Sun City Girls - Live At The Sky Church 

'Live at the Sky Church' is the Sun City Girls's incredibly strange performance at the Experience Music Project in Seattle on September 3, 2004.  One of only a few recordings to be released after Sun City Girls disbanded in 2007.

kHz - 1003 — Sunn Trio - Electric Esoterica

'Electric Esoterica' adds to Sunn Trio's growing catalogue and follows 2018's "Fairs' on Unrock Records.  This Phoenix group helps keep a sound tradition going in the valley while forging an entirely new path.  Sunn Trio will be touring during the Fall of 2019 on the heels of this release.  First experiments in a "real" studio.

kHz - 1004 — The Alternative Particle Choir - The Black Hole Diaries 

In the summer of 2017, W. David Oliphant, Alan Bishop, and Joel Robinson joined forces to create a three sided LP that redefines the concept of 'sun damaged' often ascribed to Arizona sounds.  This release brought W. David Oliphant, Bob Anderson, and Ryan J. Bruce together to start this Bisbee, Arizona-based record label.
