"The Family Album"

Three-and-a-half years of living dangerously, 42 months full of adventurous releases, of passion, discoveries, madness, courage, faith...

To mark this occasion, each artist on the roster of Tony 'Moody Boyz' Thorpe's imprint has produced a new exclusive track for THE FAMILY ALBUM, an extremely low-priced CD/LP which contains 9 snapshots from the current State of Language, and shows once again why and how the label has become one of the most respected sources of experimental beats.
