Labradford

Labradford is a U.S post-rock trio from Richmond, Virginia.

Founded in 1992, their earliest releases ‘A Stable Reference'(1994) and ‘Prazision'(1996) were dark, otherworldy drone rock affairs. Constantly evolving, by their third full-length album (Labradford, 1996) the band had expanded their approach and started to infuse their music with both sampled and real time percussion traces, as well as make use of electronics and non-traditional arrangement and production techniques to create soundtrack-like, effects-heavy landscapes.

1997’s ‘Mi Media Naranja’ saw them add to their distinctive sonic identity with the inclusion of a string section, Fender Rhodes electric piano and slide guitar. Further releases ‘E luxo so’ (1999) and the critically acclaimed ‘Fixed: Content’ (2001) continued to cement the bands reputation as post-rock innovators. Although the band have not officially split up ‘Fixed:Content’ remains their last official release with band members all going on to work on separate projects.
