Between 2002 and 2004, the Chicago-based False Walls label released six CDs. Run by CJ Mitchell alongside his other work in the performing arts, the CDs were predominantly instrumental and experimental: including post-rock, acoustic improvisation, electronics and a radio project.

After 2004, the label went dormant, with the original six CDs out of print.

In 2021, following CJ’s re-location to Faversham (UK), the label launches again, with its old catalogue of six releases being made available for download for the first time.

New releases will follow in 2022: a new CD from Cindytalk and a boxset of live recordings and writings from Andrew Poppy.
