TRANQUONAUTS releases their sophomore album Tranquonauts 2


PRE-ORDER Wednesday June 19, 10:00 CET,

Released in Australia on Blown Music in a delexe version, and in Europe on Lay Bare Recordings - red debris vinyl, limited to 50 copies w/ - insert and DIGITAL DOWNLOAD (full album plus 7” tracks). 


The band Tranquonauts is a collaboration band that involves the creative input of the members of Seedy Jeezus- Lex Waterreus, Paul Crick and Mark Sibson Isaiah Mitchell of Earthless and Tony Reed of Mos Generator.

After the release of the Tranquonauts debut album in 2016, which was spawn from from conversation between members of Seedy Jeezus and Isaiah Mitchell, we are on the precipice of the second instalment in the journey that is the Tranquonauts, which this time includes Tony Reed.


The was long talks into the night about what to call the album, it was decided to call the second album “ Tranquonauts 2”.  They had the title and they just needed the album. This took longer than expected.

In 2022, Isaiah Mitchell was finishing up a two year tour as a guitarist for The Black Crowes. This tour ended in Melbourne, Australia.So the chance was there to record the second album (T2) after the Black Crowes tour. 

Seedy Jeezus booked a studio in Melbourne and the following day they met up and locked themselves in the studio and jammed for hours…. Recording random thoughts ideas and just playing where the music went, with no expectations, except to have a blast and enjoy themselves.    

Fast forward to late 2023, while Lex was in New York, he cut together from all of the recordings, an outline of what the second album would sound like.  With so much material at hand, Lex also pulled out 2 songs to be added on a 7” in the deluxe version. Then it was sent to Tony Reed to mix and master. At this time, Tony was also invited to contribute to the album, which he did. Playing various instruments and adding vocals etc..

Last chance for FRAYLE on Lay Bare! Get the Epic Doom Trinity at a farewell price.


Dear beloved LBR supporters,

At Lay Bare Recordings, our wonderful artists are like family to us. 
We nurture them, guide them, and share countless laughs, tears and growth experiences together. Bonds are formed and friendships made through our releases, tours and unforgettable shows like Damnation Festival, Desertfest Belgium and Soulcrusher.

We welcomed Cleveland’s doomsters Frayle in 2018. It’s been an honour and a pleasure to release their incredible music: the heavy witch doom debut 'The White Witch EP’ (and single ‘Dead Inside’), the rawly haunting ’Skin & Sorrow’, and historically-charged ‘1692’. With a mix of emotions like a child leaving home, we bid Frayle farewell as they embark on a new journey with Napalm Records.

To celebrate this incredible musical collaboration, we've collected all three of Frayle’s releases with Lay Bare into a special 3LP Bundle. This exclusive collection is available for a limited-time farewell price!

Don’t miss this opportunity to own a piece of Lay Bare Recordings history.

Galloway Studio and Lay Bare Recordings present their first release: Kintsugi Empire - 'Shun', a collaboration release under the moniker of Sound of Niche

The concept of Sound of Niche is the brainchild of Sebastiaan van Bijlevelt of Galloway Studio and Désirée Hanssen of the Dutch boutique Record Label Lay Bare Recordings. 

Sound of Niche (SoN) is based on a unique collaboration platform, which offers different artists from different creative fields the opportunity to collaborate and present their work. It is a promising initiative that promotes collaboration and expands the reach of artists to a broader audience.

Together with multi-instrumentalist and the driving force behind Kintsugi Empire, Pieter Holkenborg, the Dutch film & photographer Maaike Ronhaar and graphic designer and visual artist Jop Luberti, we have created a vinyl record that is enriched with authentic Obi design and striking analogue photos that refer to each song.

Italy's kariti signs to Lay Bare Recordings to release new album Dheghom. It'll be out in February 2nd, 2024. 

Hearing the voice of ekaterina from карити (kariti) made an instant connection with my heart and my skin. It was hard not to engage with her captivating blend of powerful vocals, engaging melodies, and evocative poems. kariti’s mix of intimate, atmosferic mournful ‘ambient folk songs with crisp sounding instruments and eerie harmonies creates a unique and emotional experience.

The impact of kariti’s voice is evident, draws you as a listener into it and makes it easy to connect with the depth of her music and words. kariti's resonant vocal tone adds a distinctive and profound quality to her music. It's fascinating how a singer's voice can shape the emotional experience of a song.

Lay Bare Recordings is beyond thrilled to welcome kariti to the label and to collaborate on releasing her upcoming album Dheghom on 2.2.24. Incredibly exciting to walk the path of this rich and diverse musical experience together.
