Today we announce Freedom To Spend’s first catalog wide deep dive into an artist’s career – Robert Cox’s Rimarimba, beginning with 1983’s Below The Horizon, followed by 1984’s On Dry Land, 1985’s In The Woods, and finally, the once-imagined, now-realized assembly of 1988’s Light Metabolism Number Prague.
On September 21, Freedom To Spend will offer the complete collection in an edition of 250 screen-printed canvas carriers. This canvas collection will be the only opportunity to access Light Metabolism Number Prague. Below the Horizon will then be released in a one-time edition of 750 copies on October 5, followed by On Dry Land and In The Woods on January 8, 2019 and February 22, respectively. Each album features artwork reinterpreted from its original edition by Will Work For Good, and accompanying abstracts by Jon Dale.
Today we celebrate the release of Ursula K. Le Guin & Todd Barton‘s Music and Poetry of The Kesh. The first edition is sold out at source, but we are taking pre-orders for the repress now, which is scheduled to ship in May.

Richard Horowitz’s Eros In Arabia comes to us as the fourth release from Freedom to Spend this year, with a visual for “Eros Never Stops Dreaming,” the album’s second track. As the bendir frame drum sets a bowing rhythm and the feathery wind of the ney flute floats above it with effortless mathematics, an embodiment of Eros In Arabia is intercepted by one of a generation for whom the tactile music listening experience may eventually resemble strange ceremony and circumstance.
