Time As A Color Records is a small DIY label/distro from Munich, Germany. Label owner Daniel contacted me a long time ago now about reviews and I've been an idiot and overlooked it, which I am very sorry about. Time As A Color has been releasing great screamo records since 2007 and with a staunchly DIY ethos, including screen-printing his own record sleeves and putting on gigs in Munich.
Amongst the releases, Time As A Color has been putting out a special split series called Leave Nothing But Footprints, Take Nothing But Photographs, which aims to bands sharing a record and to help get their music out to more fans. This is the first edition, which was released way back in 2011 and features songs by German bands I Found Myself In Austin, Texas and Bail, being joined by US band Her Breath On Glass. All three bands play hardcore/screamo.
1. I Found Myself In Austin, Texas - Too Late
2. Bail - Traverse Pt.1
3. Bail - Traverse Pt.2
4. Her Breath On Glass - Deprecious, It Will Be Like We Were Never Here
As regular readers and friends will know, I love screamo and in fact it makes up most of my LP collection alongside a large proportion of hardcore. It’s not something I review too often on here though, but I’m looking to write about more in the coming months. This is my first listen to I Found Myself In Austin, Texas too and I’m excited by the. The melodic indie-like guitars on Too Late and the vocals that sit back within the mix make their sound pretty engaging. A great first impression for me.
