Artist: +MINUS
Title: L®¶coute lib®¶r®¶
Format: CDR
Label: Esquilo
Country: Portugal
Price: $11.50
"Three tracks from three of the most interesting musicians operating in Europe and one of the most inventive groups to appear in the improvised music scene in recent years. The first number in the Variant Series is a very special presentation: each musician re-works the groups soundworld adding new dimensions to it. The pieces, either resultant from post-recording on un-released live recordings of +minus or the virtual assemblage of the band based on each musicians individual work, are all different - and different from their previous records on trente oiseaux. The whole works perfectly giving a sense that the music included in this record could have emerged naturally from one of the bands encounters. This edition comes in a red deluxe gatefold cardboard case with silk-screened original art and a short description of each track by the musicians themselves. Limited to 160 copies." - Esquilo. +minus is Bernhard G®πnter, Mark Wastell & Graham Halliwell.

Artist: 1/3 OCTAVE BAND
Title: Tarakohe/Ritual Of Gravity
Format: 7"
Label: Fusetron
Country: USA
Price: $3.40
"Dense yet subtle sub-aquatic forcefields of sound from Bill Wood, who you also may recognize as an occasional member of New Zealands Birchville Cat Motel. This is his first somewhat available solo release after a self released CDR and lathe cut 7". Celebrate Psi Phenomenon will also be releasing a CD in the near future. This 7" single was pressed on ridiculously thick black vinyl in the Czech Republic and is a one time edition of 250 copies."- Fusetron. "Birchville Cat Motel-related project presents first-rate string-shiver drone pressed on a big thick chunk o vinyl. I think 45 RPM is the "correct" playing speed, but it sounds great at any of em: 78 RPM sends it whooshing through space, while 16 RPM sounds like Black Sabbath trying to worm their way out of a really good downer jam. Ah, the possibilites of sound . . . (let the lock groove spin at 78 for ten minutes and see what happens)" - Eddie Flowers. "Nice 7" of weird pulsing atmospheric music. This has a lot of personality and is more dynamic than droning. All for the best." -Scott Foust/Swill Radio. "If youve ever heard of New Zealand musician Bill Wood, chances are that it was related to his work with Campbell Kneales Birchville Cat Motel. But Bill has his own line of space rock/guitar drone/massive atmopsherics as well, and he records them as 1/3 Octave Band. Woods music is new to my ears but its highly impressive. He takes a very maxist approach to drones, filling the pulses of his endless frontiers with shifting arrays of instrumental intrigue and ominously pulsing lights. A great thing, and on that thick Czech vinyl that weighs about a pound. What more could you want?" - Byron Coley, WIRE.

Artist: 13TH CHIME
Title: The Singles 1981-1983
Format: LP
Label: Sacred Bones
Country: USA
Price: $14.25
"Sacred Bones is proud to announce the release of the 13th Chime singles collection. Long sought after by collectors, the UK band only released a scant three singles in their time together before dissolving into obscurity. Their sound°™a merging of deathrocks dark driving aggression and post-punks sparse arrangements°™reflected the realities of life in a small market town in the desolate political landscape of early 80s Britain. In cooperation with the band members Sacred Bones has collected 13th Chimes three singles plus rare never before heard demo recordings of °∞Tinker Man,°± °∞Radio Man,°± and °∞13th Victim.°± Detailed liner notes by Clive OGrady tell the entire story°™from schoolmates in the Suffolk town of Haverhill to tours with The Enid, Theater of Hate, support slots with The Adicts and Dead Kennedys, and an inevitable breakup, making friends and fans out of John Peel and The Groundhogs Tony McPhee along the way. Look out for the °∞Lost Album°± LP and °∞The Complete Discography°± CD later this summer." -Sacred Bones

Artist: A HANDFUL OF DUST
Title: Now Gods, Stand Up For Bastards & The Philosophick Mercury
Format: Double CD
Label: No Fun
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Now Gods, Stand Up For Bastards/The Philosophik Mercury is a double-disc re-issue of two limited and long out-of-print works by this obscure enigma. Plunging straight into the chasm of ultra-minimalist abrasion and chaotic improv, these two records stand as unrelenting and engrossing epics of guitar feedback, disintegrating electronic sound, string-shredding violin abuse, and other facets of impassioned iconoclasm. Recommended for lovers of AMM, Henry Flynt, and Hijokaidan. A Handful of Dust are a group consisting of a core duo of Bruce Russell (The Dead C) and Alastair Galbraith. Formed in Dunedin, New Zealand in 1990." -No Fun

Artist: ABE VIGODA
Title: Skelaton
Format: Cass
Label: Not Not Fun
Country: USA
Price: $6.25
"Shit is clich鬠but ya cant fight the fact that time changes EVERYTHING (or wait, maybe its money?). Either way: were pretty old but not so old weve forgotten the cradle days of early Abe Vigoda shows when they only liked Smashing Pumpkins, short shorts, and boating shoes, and their sets were short spiky blasts of post-Unwound lo-fi outsider-punk (a la the Sky Route/Star Roof LP). That was a long time ago. But like all good bands the Vigodans have re-invented themselves a half dozen times over since then, and its been a totally rad ride to witness the evolution/transformation, especially since their journeys culminated in the total sparkling tropic magic sunbath of Skeleton, the best AV record ever. Years of fiddling with delay pedal settings and intricate bass/drums equations somehow resulted in a weird, bright, upbeat island punk sound thats as catchy and life-affirming as it is tripped-out and overwhelming. Who knew? Catch these die-hards at a show in yr neck of the woods any day now; they are now on PERMA-TOUR. Pro-dubbed cassettes in a “Columbia Records”-style super legit J-card. Edition of 200. This album is also available on CD and LP from our friends at Post Present Medium." -Not Not Fun

"On his debut LP After The Snow (this artist was already present on Enfant04: Electronic Renaissance) presents to the world his visions and feelings translated into dark, ritualistic and invocative minimal electronics.

Artist: AGOG
Title: Dust Is Their Food And Clay Their Meat
Format: LP
Label: Anomalous
Country:
Price: $10.50
"Starting his music career in the early 1980s in the collective Points of Friction alongside Joseph Hammer and being on the fringes of the L.A.F.M.S. group, Damian Bisciglia has gone on to create a body of work only available on cassette and generally only heard among the cassette culture. His work is amazingly developed though, finding a style incorporating collage, improvisation, and diverse number of unique sources including contact mic as instrument unto itself, multitracked loops, shells, balloons, metal heater, springs, matchbox car, and many others." - Anomalous.

Artist: AIAS
Title: A La Piscina
Format: CD
Label: Captured Tracks
Country: USA
Price: $8.50
"Aias are Gaia, Laia and Miriam. Gaia sings and plays guitar. Laia sings and plays drums and Miriam sings and plays bass. And the three together they try to make songs for anyone else to sing. Pop with distortion, lots of "oooos" and vocal harmonies in in a cave with endless ceilings sung in their native Catalan (not Spanish, mind you!) Aias began as a birthday party band and by surprise ended up being a band for real, or at least thats their current intention. The desire to win in the fight against the instrument itself, the need to shout a bit during the week, a Vivian Girls concert during the Primavera Sound Festival and the providential intervention of Cristian Pallej®§ (Nisei, Sedai®Ƴ) lead to a home made recording in a village lost in Catalonia and an unexpected winter signing with the New York Label, Captured tracks. "A La Piscina" is their first full-length release, for which they will be touring the US in the Fall." - Captured Tracks.

Artist: AIRPORT WAR
Title: In Dreams Begin Responsibilities
Format: Picture Disc LP
Label: Airport War
Country: USA
Price: $13.50
"This latest LP from Airport War is 12 inches of guilt-by-association (or rather the bastard child between Delmore Schwartz, pornography, the Moor Murders, Raymond Pettibon, Sonic Youth, and Patty Hearst). All represented in either, title, image, or sound, they demonstrate the collapse between audience and performer—with the record being the rate of exchange. Version/inversion (a figure 8), this piece of plastic is the intersection that connects Airport War to his audience and himself to his art—a meditation on medium. In Dreams Begins Responsibilities features a single loop of Patty Hearts long lost phone call from the closet to her parents—the first call after her kidnapping by the SLA. The call was originally recorded on tape and then played over the phone and then transferred to tape for the world to hear—a performance distributed via news networks throughout the world to millions of people (had it been sold/itd have gone gold in seconds). Specifically, the loop contains the first four words: Mom, Dad, Im okay. The last two words "Im okay" repeat into infinity or until the listener grows tired, the record wears out or the player breaks down. The record comes in two version (limited to 50 of each), with the sole difference being the inversion of the two color silkscreen process—one with red overlay and one with blue overlay. Silkscreen ink was applied directly to the record. Hand Signed/Numbered." - Airport War Records

Artist: ALCORN, SUSAN
Title: And I Await the Resurrection of the Pedal Steel Guitar
Format: LP
Label: Olde English Spelling Bee
Country: USA
Price: $12.50
"This is the fifth solo offering by the Houston, Texas based pedal steel sorceress, Susan Alcorn. "The Heart Sutra" opens and is inspired by the "Sutra of the Heart of Transcendent Wisdom", which was delivered by Buddha 2,500 years ago. It is a beautiful, yet solemn work that reverbates from within as Susan strums those magical strings. The title track, "And I Await the Resurrection of the Pedal Steel Guitar", was inspired by Messiaens "Et Expecto Ressurectionum Mortuorum". It is a near 16-minute epic of stirring, haunting sounds. Each note is stretched out and floats like a spirit on the wind in a graveyard. Ms. Alcorns approach to the pedal steel guitar is completely unique and she doesnt quite sound like anyone else. If one is patient enough, they will realize that she makes every note and space count. "The Glass is Already Broken" is another piece in which each melodic fragment is touching, somber and well-selected, yet it drifts into a more sinister area. "The First Turning of the Wheel" was inspired, oddly enough, by the late Bob Graettinger, composer & arranger for Stan Kentons classic album, "This Modern World/City of Glass". I am not quite sure how this music is related to Kentons modern big band work, but again I was moved by the solemn spaciousness. For "The Second Turning of the Wheel", the notes are again softly stretched out and immensely eerie. On "Three Minute Warning", Susan lets each sound swirl and be bathed in a haze or a ghost-like echo." - Bruce G. (Downtown Music Gallery)

Artist: AMEN DUNES
Title: Murder Dull Mind
Format: 12"
Label: Sacred Bones
Country: USA
Price: $9.75
"Recorded while DAMON MCMAHON was living as an expatriate in China, AMEN DUNES presents seven new stunning works of sunlit haziness. During the two years he lived abroad, he lived most of the time in an apartment on the north end of Beijing. He tracked these songs one summer in that apartment. With the exception of "Diane" and "Murder Dull Mind," all of these songs were recorded in one take and are completely improvisational; on repeated listens though, there is a pop-ness to these songs amidst the improvisation. The title track in particular, a melodic mantra-like work could certainly function on its own as a single. Although the songs have a bit less pre-written structure than Amen Dunes previous work on the Locust label, they are still every bit as miraculous. The geographical influence on his work central to both writing and recording conditions is evident here as these songs are way more open, and generally more free than his debut Dia (recorded in 2006 in a Catskills cabin) was. A bit less psych freak out and a bit more dark folk vibe throughout." - Sacred Bones.

Artist: AMOLVACY
Title: A La Lu La
Format: LP
Label: Ultramarine
Country: Italy
Price: $11.50
"Amolvacy is Aaron Moore from Volcano the Bear, Dave Nuss from No-Neck Blues Band, and Sheila 16 of the Laboratory Theater Group, NYC. The band creates compositions from its improvisations centered around strong elemental percussion, radical theatrical vocals, and classical acoustic instruments, reminding of Holy Modal Rounders, Moondog, The Fugs. Recurring themes in Amolvacys texts are the pain of relationships, the affirmation of the feminine in myth, the heros journey, and continuous need to flame the passions of the heart. “A La Lu La” specifically addresses the gap of language in facilitating accurate communication, a gap that only music at its most primal can fill. The back of the album features text by Jose da Fonseca & Pedro Carolino, two Portugese who in 1855 created an English phrasebook titled “English As She is Spoke,” but who faced just one problem: they didnt know any English. The linguistic train wreck that ensues mirrors the play of language, sound, and unintentional humor on “A La Lu La.” - Ultramarine. Edition 500, die-cut sleeve.

Title: Ho-Ho-Kus
Format: LP
Label: Black Velvet Fuckere
Country: USA
Price: $13.25
"At least pray God to give me patience in my suffering. So concludes Lover Go From Hence, a tale of tumultuous romantic upheaval on the new Amolvacy record Ho-Ho-Kus. Here we have hearts wrenched from guts and firmly planted in the dirt; but also sprouting new romance, seduction, and... the church? And the French? Francois Rabelais wrote Garantua And Pantagruel - a major influence on this album - in the early 16th c. to caricature the faux morality of his time. Amolvacy offer Ho-Ho-Kus in the same cantankerous spirit, but this time perhaps to parody their own morality. Lead vocalist Sheila Donovan (ex-Tall Boys) is a longstanding member of the Laboratory Theater Company in NYC, and her partners are Aaron Moore of Volcano the Bear and Dave Nuss of the No-Neck Blues Band. Together they are the Amolvacy family. All things were shared in the making of this record, nothing hidden, no secrets left untold. Pressed on clear vinyl, in a die-cut sleeve." -Black Velvet Fuckere.

Title: Falling Air
Format: CD
Label: Psych-o-Path
Country: USA
Price: $8.50
"Psych-o-path Records is proud to present Falling Air the new acid-folk inspired singer songwriter album by Brendon Anderegg. Andereggs two previous releases on the Brooklyn based label Apestaartje, Anomia and When Rectangles Roll Under Cities, combine field recordings, electronics and acoustic instruments to create a strong sense of environmental space and structure. While there is definitely a thread of isolation and strong sense of experimental music apparent in Falling Air this album is an entirely different affair. Elements such as voice, acoustic guitar, banjo, violin, Rhodes, organ, piano, accordion, computer and various small instruments are interwoven into subtle yet complex arrangements at once defining a very personal style." - Psych-o-Path.

Artist: ANGELBLOOD
Title: Printed Matter
Format: CD
Label: Labia Minora
Country: USA
Price: $9.50
"On Angelbloods new CD, Labia Minora, musical styles and influences mesh and collide in a simultaneously jarring and hypnotic sonic netherworld of hope and despair. Gnarled chants and incantations alternate with ethereal floating singing, conjuring the images and emotions of pagan ritual, blood sacrifice and the quest for redemption. Crunching rhythm guitars and bass pierced by screaming leads form the dark heavy metal undertow of the albums sound. This is set to repetitive melodies with something of an earthy folk bent, creating a unique, swaying, dirge-like atmosphere °߃ only to be disrupted by the blistering drums and the chainsaw drill of the speed metal reprise, the growl of the hunter-wolf, the bellow of the slain beast. The epic final cut balances on the edge of dissonance and noise, the croon of the sister-brethren, the blood of the slaughtered pig. Angleblood is Lizzi Bougatsos (vocals), Rita Ackermann (vocals), Brian DeGraw (bass), Dave Nuss (drums) and Anders Nilssen (guitar). On Labia Minora special guest Mick Barr (of Orthrelm and Chromtech) plays guitar. Angelblood was formed in the year 2000, and has played internationally in both music and art venues. Labia Minora is their third CD. In addition to being a band, Angelblood is also a performance art group, whose dark motifs and ritualized actions match the concerns of the band. Finally, Angelblood also creates collaborative art works, distinguished by a combination of distinctive drawing and edgy collage. In all of its various incarnations, Angelblood is characterized by a raw, almost desperate approach to art and life, realms which, in the Angleblood ethos, are indistinguishable. It is this rebellious attitude of refusal and iconoclasm, coupled incongruously, yet sincerely, with a sense of pathos and reverence, that sets Angleblood apart from the monotonous drone of monolithic culture." - Printed Matter.

Title: S.H.O.P.P.I.N.G./Feel Like Dreams
Format: 7"
Label: Dulc-i-Tone
Country: USA
Price: $5.00
"The sleepy beauty of the Art Museums debut album Rough Frame (Woodist) appeared seemingly out of nowhere, but their apparent off-the-cuff casualness and unpretentious brilliance come as the logical bubbling up of years absorbing the arcane musical corners of the 60s, 70s, and 80s - where utopian folk visions, pop-art obsessions, giddy punk and new wave sheen all make perfect sense. The few who have seen The Art Museums have been lucky to hear bits of their backlog of as-yet-unreleased songs,and now the first treasures are finally seeing sunlight: Feel Like Dreams is a boyish reverie that soars along pre-prog Genesis-style keyboard chords above crisp drum machine cracks. Its all really unexpected and works like you wouldnt believe! And S.H.O.P.P.I.N.G? Well, without hyperbole, we can say that it is, to us, the most enjoyable one minute, forty-five seconds put on tape in a long, long time. The Style Council stripped of pomp and set to a thunderous low-end of rumbling electronic drums, S.H.O.P.P.I.N.G is disposable in all the right ways, the perfect mod-pop soundtrack to your no-longer-dull walk down the street. REALLY! Beautiful full-color, heavy-duty glossy glued sleeves. First pressing of 500." - Dulc-i-Tone.

Title: Model Town in a Field of Mudd
Format: LP
Label: Textile
Country: France
Price: $15.00
"Model Town in a field of Mud is the result of a collaboration between Neil Cambell and John Clyde Evans. This album was recorded largely thru the post during Johns year long stay in India. (although the very last few minutes are the duo live in Sheffield right after he returned). This album is a 50/50 collaboration, hopefully the first of many! John Clyde Evans has a lenghty career, even if he did "disappear" for a few years. John was in the band Hood (Domino Recordings) then cut a couple of great solo records, then disapeared, reappearing using his Sikh name of Tirath Singh Nirmala, cutting an LP with Richard Yuongs, then reverting his original name and droping the magnificent " Apetal Thunderfall" CD on us earlier this year!! Neil Campbell is a cornerstone of the UK underground and played in Vibracathedral Orchestra, Sunroof, A Band, with Richard Youngs, Damo Susuki and many many other artists. Despite some esoteric path, Model Town in a field of mud reconfirm John and Neil intentions to blast techno into the Stratosphere" - Textile

Title: Peter Pan Hits the Suburbs
Format: LP
Label: La Vida Es Un Mus
Country: UK
Price: $13.25
"Reissue of this long lost masterpice from 1981 originally released by Bulge / Genius records. The Astronauts were (and are, after close to 30 years and a history of lineup shifts only bested by The Fall) the definitive psych-punk ensemble, though even that title doesnt do em justice. Their sound culminates the post 77 punk dabblings of head forbears Twink (his Do it 77 single and The Rings I wanna be free platter), Nik Turner (the outstanding Inner City Unit and the punkier late 70s bits of Hawkwind) and Daevid Allens planet Gong (with fellow acid-punkers Here and Now) all woven in with an earlier Robert Wyatt / mellow candle-y psych folk vibe...

"Reissue of this long lost masterpice from 1981 originally released by Bulge / Genius records. The Astronauts were (and are, after close to 30 years and a history of lineup shifts only bested by The Fall) the definitive psych-punk ensemble, though even that title doesnt do em justice. Their sound culminates the post 77 punk dabblings of head forbears Twink (his Do it 77 single and The Rings I wanna be free platter), Nik Turner (the outstanding Inner City Unit and the punkier late 70s bits of Hawkwind) and Daevid Allens planet Gong (with fellow acid-punkers Here and Now) all woven in with an earlier Robert Wyatt / mellow candle-y psych folk vibe...

Title: Chain [RE] Action
Format: CD
Label: Blossoming Noise
Country: USA
Price: $9.25
"Sound Designer (as he likes to be described) Akifumi Nakajimas Aube project distances itself from the work of other Japanese noise musicians by adopting a fiercely Ambient approach into his work. Water going down a plug hole, the hum of lamps heating up and the sounds of his own body have dominated previous Aube releases, but for this recording (as its title implies) Nakajima uses chains as his main sound source to create five textural pieces that range from the looping metallic shrill of "The Metal Cicada" to the minimalistic sonar pulsation of "Vibrate Quietly", which sounds like it was recorded in a bathysphere at the bottom of the ocean. This combination of harsh and gentle sounds sets the tone for the entire album, which culminates in "Spasmodic Repetition", a colossal ringing electronic drone piece that incorporates the central theme of chains being manipulated to produce loop patterns of clang and glitch." - The Wire Magazine

"Debut LP by ANV. Co-release with Upstairs CD-R -- the label run by Dan Lopatin (of Oneohtrix Point Never / Games). Mixed by Chris Coady at DNA Downtown, NYC." "Autre Ne Veut (I want no other) was inscribed on the back of a gold and garnet hat ornament (ca. 1475) found at Hanley Castle in Worcestershire. It is rumored to be the gift of an English Duke to his French mistress, but this is simply conjecture." -- Metropolitan Museum of Art / The Cloisters, New York City "Olde English Spelling Bee is one of those labels you can implicitly trust to provide you with the most brilliantly weird music. Their latest missive is a self titled shocker from Autre Ne Veut, a moocher from the same circles as Oneohtrix Point Never and all those weirdo Brooklyn types with an uncanny line in subtly skewed pop queerness. Seriously, this is one of the strangest, most jarringly unique records of the year, and we love it. At heart its an incredible pop album with traces of Prince, Prefab Sprout and Erasure at its core, but each melody and harmony is delivered with an off-key sleight of hand that really plays on your preconceptions and experience of classic synth pop. Theres definite nods to the soundtracks of John Hughes movies and the like, but its perhaps more like The Breakfast Club score remade by the Troma company for some secret pay-per-view internet channel. Autre Ne Veut has possibly made one of our favourite albums this year and we urge you to investigate without delay. Essential!" - Boomkat.

Artist: AUTUMN
Title: Synthesize
Format: LP
Label: Minimal Wave
Country: USA
Price: $18.50
"The twenty-seventh release on Minimal Wave is Autumns Synthesize LP, selections from the bands best material. Autumn was the legendary project of Peter Bonne and Geert Coppens, two Belgian teenagers who started experimenting with the potentials of analog synthesizers during the late 70s and soon after formed a band together in 1980, quickly becoming one of the most truly visionary groups to emerge from the synth scene in Europe. The album is titled after their Synthesize single which was recorded along with its b-side The Third Autumn in 1981 in a professional 24 track studio in only 7 hours. Both songs became modest summer hits in Belgian dance clubs in 1982, and the release been highly sought after ever since. This album features Synthesize and The Third Autumn, along with other cassette only favorites like I Say You Hello, Not Afraid To Die, and Night In June (featured on Angulars Cold Wave & Minimal Electronics compilation in 2010). Considering how young Autumn were when they recorded these songs, the production is very impressive. These multi-layered synthpop gems are catchy, danceable and definitely ahead of their time. I Say You Hello has been described as an "amazing" piece of synth music with "insanely catchy vocals, an incredible bass line and some mind-melting analog patterns". Autumn was previously featured on V/A The Lost Tapes LP with their Time Is On Our Side, a magical piece of dark synth wave music. Due to heavy interest in the band and our general love for all Micrart Group projects, we decided a full LP needed to be released. Thus we present it to you: a hand-numbered, limited edition pressing on 180 gram clear green vinyl housed in a heavy printed gloss jacket." - Minimal Wave.

"Here is your introduction to phase two. While there is a certain degree of continuity in the approach, II is a noticeable extrapolation of the Avarus SOUND. The albums six tracks span collage-esque pieces of audio junk to deconstructed song forms to subtly dense instrumentals. Waves of stretched electronics, distorted clank and warbling bass throb create layers of chaotic wreckage until a sudden collapse reveals an underlying stasis. Unnoticed patterns now conscious pull the listener into another time/mind continuum. Step into the g-a-p. The LP is presented in a full cover printed sleeve with suitable "found" photo art...for you to figure out what its all about." - HP Cycle.

Despite the weight of these players when they rock alone, this jam really never gets into full on white out territory. Instead, its loaded to the brim with wavy neon distortion and soothing low end that occasional drops out into huge washes of emptiness.

Though they recorded constantly and amassed hours and hours of tape, only 10 or Basket Case releases were made, nearly half of which were released after the fact. All limited and impossible to find now. This tape features all live compsitions, very acoustic, sparse, and organic sounding. Recorded 1999 in Lansing and Detroit (at the Detroit Contemporary).

Title: S/T

Price: $8.50
"The story of Beach Fossils starts with frontman Dustin Payseur writing and recording songs for their debut self-titled LP out of his tiny Brooklyn apartment in the Fall of 2009. His recent move from North Carolina that year had left him with a sense of longing to reconnect with his past and the lush open landscape he left behind. During that year Dustin experimented with innovative methods of self-recording (using a Tascam four-track and Logic Pro) and composing. He drew his inspiration from improvisational jazz, classical and shoegaze artists, such as Anthony Braxton, pre-Stereolab project McCarthy and Giuseppe Tartini. Playing all his own instruments (keyboard, drums, bass, guitar), he soon emerged with a shimmering array of sun drenched pop songs. Dustin eventually linked creative forces with John Pena (bass), Sennott Burke (guitar) and Cole Smith (drums) who joined the band and helped collaborate on the songs Wide Awake and Gathering. The full bands immediate chemistry and unforgettable stage presence radiate with a wild, youthful-sincerity. Beach Fossils offers warm and inviting melodies that evoke the haunted sounds of another era: straightforward guitar riffs, a kaleidoscope of psychedelic rhythms, and distant, faded vocals all come together to make the perfect soundtrack to an endless summer afternoon. After hearing their demo last in the spring of 2009, Mike Sniper signed Beach Fossils to Captured Tracks. Since joining the label s roster, Beach Fossils have played CMJ,SXSW, toured the U.S. and are planning a European summer tour." -Captured Tracks.

Title: Architectural Commentaries

Price: $9.50
"German composer and sound artist Marc Behrens has put forth a beautiful installment of sound work for CMRs second CD release, entitled Architectural Commentaries. Marc has been working with sound (in one form or another) since 1986 and is probably most recognised for his digitally re-worked field material and composition. With a long history of installation work and live performance, he has exhibited alone and in group exhibitions; and performed live internationally in locations such as Japan, Switzerland, Italy, Slovenia, Spain, and the UK. He has completed tours with fellow sound artists Francisco Lopez, Bernhard Gunter and John Duncan and has had notable CD releases on Gunters label Trente Oiseaux (Germany), Digital Narcis (Japan), Raster Music (Germany) and Intransitive Recordings (USA). Architectural Commentaries is comprised of five tracks. The first three pieces, entitled Architectural Commentaries 1-3, are some of Marcs most recent compositions arranged in 2001 using basic material recorded from 1990-2000 in various global locations. Taking title, sleeve images and sound together we are left with new audible environments for architectural structures; jets of forced air and amplified nothing, distant machinery and tiny bites of frequency, faded and cut together to create beautifully atmospheric soundscapes. Track 4 was previously released on RLWs Tulpas 5 CD set (Selektion 024) and was constructed using source material from Ralf Wehowsky. Track 5 was composed in 1992 as a soundtrack to accompany the video Der Raum by Torsten Grosch - stills of which feature on the CD sleeve. The album permits a smooth flow between Marcs earlier and more recent work and shows the artists continuing exploration into the depth and dimensions of sound recording." - CMR.

This if the first book of my own so I am excited about it and hope you are as well. It was a simple process to create this book but I am glad to have it out in the world. It describes an era of development for me in my work. I hope to surpass this work by keeping on the creative path but its nice to have something to look back on. Art is for sharing not keeping to yourself. The more people your work can speak to the more powerful it becomes. Let it fall out of your hands and into the minds of others. You cant own it, you can only create it. "Hisham Akira Bharoocha is an artist currently based in Brooklyn, New York. He concentrates on creating music, visual art, and photography. Bharoocha has had solo exhibitions of his work at DAmelio Terras gallery in New York, as well as Vleeshal, a state run space in The Netherlands. He has been in numerous group exhibitions at galleries such as Deitch Projects, John Connelly Presents, and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. His work has been published in Art Forum, V, i-D, Flaunt, Tokion, Dossier to name a few. Hisham is well known in the underground music scene for being a founding member of the bands Lightning Bolt and Black Dice. After leaving Black Dice, he created Soft Circle, a solo project that allowed him a more personal exploration of his own musical interests. His first solo album, Full Bloom was released in January 2007 on Eastern Developments. He has a split 12 inch release with High Places that came out in July 2009 on PPM. Soft Circle is now a duo consisting of Bharoocha and Ben Vida (Bird Show/Singer) and they are working on a new album which will come out in the Spring of 2010. Hisham has collaborated with artists such as Doug Aitken on a sound piece that was performed at MoMA during his Sleep Walkers installation, as well as musicians such as the experimental rock group Boredoms in which he helped organize the legendary 77 BOADRUM (which happened on 7/07/07 where 77 drummers performed with the band in Dumbo Brooklyn), 88 BOADRUM (which happened on 08/08/08 where 88 drummers performed with Boredoms in LA, 88 drummers playing with Gang Gang Dance in NYC at the same time) and 9 BOADRUM performances (which happened on 9/09/09 where 9 drummers performed with the band as well as other dates including playing the ATP Festival curated by Flaming Lips)." - Soundscreen Design.

"A new 5 track album (settling in around the 2 epic tracks from the screamformelongbeach 3" cdr) Our Love Will Destroy the World finds Campbell Kneale engaged in a deeper archaeological sifting of the rock and metal tropes that he has recently been exploring with Black Boned Angel. Whilst remaining resolutely a Birchville album the instrumentation employed has been culled from the heavier end of the metal spectrum to produce what many is perhaps Birchvilles most accessible album to date. Fluidly shifting but piercing guitar feedback and endlessly heavy riffs are married to grindcore drumming, organ fugues and electronics to create a huge wash of sound that somehow manages to exemplify the ecstatic beauty of so much of the Birchville oeuvre at the same time as being supremely heavy. This is the Birchvilles bliss reverie ROCK album..." -Pseudoarcana

"The Bitters are Aerin Fogel and Ben Cook (Fucked Up, Young Governor). Formed in the east end of Toronto, The Bitters write and record their self-proclaimed Cave Pop from their studio, an artistic cooperative shared with Torontos most creative musicians. Their debut 12? EP, Wooden Glove, was released last spring on Captured Tracks and sold out shortly after, having been instantly well-received among tough critics and keen listeners alike. The band is a result of Cook and Fogels prolific efforts and their ability to construct songs ranging from 50s melodies atop dark post-punk instrumentals, to 90s throwback alternative and grunge, which stems from their unique dynamic as friends and partners. Their collaborative work appears live with the help of drummer Jonah Falco (Fucked Up) and a rotation of starry guest bassists." - Mexican Summer. Edition of 1000.

"Hot on the heels of their debut Mexican Summer long-player, THE BITTERS, consisting of AERIN FOGEL and the ever-prolific BEN COOK (ROOMMATES, YOUNG GOVERNOR, FUCKED UP), bring us their Have a Nap Hotel EP. This Toronto-based duo have built a name for themselves forging their self-coined "cave pop" genre, which merges elements of 50s melodies and dark post-punk instrumentals with just a hint of flannel. Their debut 12-inch EP Wooden Glove, was released last spring on Captured Tracks and sold out shortly after, having been instantly well-received among tough critics and keen listeners alike. Cooks jangly guitars stay back in the cut and let Fogels vocals (and the occasional fuzzy lead, saxophone, synth line, and handclap) wash over the tunes. Their collaborative work appears live with the help of drummer JONAH FALCO (Fucked Up, CAREER SUICIDE) and a rotation of starry guest bassists. Though live shows have been scarce, owing to the members involvement with a number of other disparate projects, the band made their live debut a short time ago and found time to play the Sacred Bones label showcase at SXSW." - Sacred Bones.

Price: $13.25
"Fully re-mastered vinyl edition of what was originally a Europe-only cassette released in an edition of 80 copies from the solo project of Spencer Clark of The Skaters/Vodka Soap/Monopoly Child et al. Spencer describes Black Joker as being more drone-focused and with faster percussion than the recent Monopoly Child sets. Indeed, the percussion is thrifty and up-front, with arcs of criss-crossing time signatures generating maximum space/time confusion. The combination of trance-informed momentum and bubbling electronic sci-fi tones sounds closest to one of the Sun Ra Arkestras most future-visioned takes on “Ancient Aethiopia” while expanding on the classic post-Angus MacLise feel of all of the best Skaters material. Comes with pro-printed 80s style 12” maxi-sleeves with liner notes by Fortean authority, itinerant visionary and Skaters road mangler in-absentia Charles Berlitz. ”…the drifting of desert sand sculptures appearing within crystaline miraged mountains during a cycle in which the gleaming of sand star sparkled night is blown, floating towards dawn, as the racing of the camels amongst the sunbound mirages expend dimensions of presentation for these sculptures, which, as wind diminishes and returns, a sand is cast to represent the variety of dimensions interacted : as symbold vision, where the atmosphered wind senses the stars amongst the sand, the camel within the mirage, and the mediation of an experiences whole motion of interaction...” - David Keenan

"For the quickly ascending career of the BLANK DOGS, this 12-inch marks another ringer, and already their fourth release of 2007, clearly showing an impeccable work ethic with no signs of stopping. Each record sounding more unique and far out than the last, this brand new 12-inch EP on Sacred Bones shows the Blank Dogs evolving into a full-on goth-gone wrong killing machine, yet they dont need to get nasty. The effects the vocals reverberate through will cause instant nausea when exposed to the elderly and the weak, yet underneath lie those keenly disguised pop hooks that stick with you long after the record stops. If Death Pop was ever really a term, the Blank Dogs now own it, yet their wrong wave wanderings can entertain fringe psych-heads just the same, hence their growing appeal across genre boundaries."-Victim Of Time.

Blank Dogs seem to have studied in the cadaverous school of German minimalism where thaumaturgs such as Grauzone excelled, but covered some of the piercing angles with the flesh and blood of the new wave that these Islands did bear, particularly Joy Division and even Young Marble Giants at certain moments of trembling melodic beauty. All laced with that distorted barbed wire one finds in so many promising new acts from the other side of the pond.

"...Occasionally calling in collaborators from the likes of Crystal Stilts, Vivian Girls and Times New Viking, Phrases, Snipers latest EP in a long succession of vinyl-only releases, sees him going it alone for the most part. Indeed, its hard to envisage anyone else being allowed sufficient mindspace to create alongside Sniper, such is the vast propensity of ideas that fill the four tracks here. While the opening electro-tinged robotics of Heat And Depression resembles a Crystal Castles outtake, Sniper mumbling "Can you see yourself?" with surreptitious repetition over a distorted funky bassline, its on Phrases other three tracks that his more obscure influences start to take hold. Blurred Tonight takes The Cramps danse macabre schtick through the same backdoor as The Horrors managed so successfully last year, except with even more menacing vocal assertions courtesy of that man Sniper. His voice then gets the heavily reverbed treatment on Racing Backwards, a Cure-inspired number that sees the opulent Sniper make the offer "stay to the end" which becomes increasingly difficult to refuse as verse usurps chorus. Despite Blank Dogs NYC dancefloor tendencies, theres something inadvertently English about these compositions, suitably realised in the closing End Of Summer which takes Depeche Modes early Roland Jupiter-led blueprint before mashing it into a collage of post-punk ambience, beats and all..." - from Drowned In Sound.

"Founded as a duo by T. Graves and Reyna Kay in September 2008, Blessure Grave blurs the lines between the goth, postpunk and neofolk genres. The pair has since developed the project into a full band while building a cult-like following, scattering various vinyl and tape releases on boutique labels around the globe. Citing Killing Joke, Death in June, March Violets and The Cure as influences, Blessure Grave injects a pop sensibility into songs otherwise doomed to dreariness, creating an interesting mix of old and new but dark all around. The music initially appears rather simple, but quickly reveals the fact that the songs are fully fleshed-out and genuinely memorable. The album provides the perfect soundtrack for contemplating todays troubled times or for simply being swept away with the nostalgic 80s vibe that permeates much of the recording. The band does not waste a lot a time allowing tracks to drone on: the songs are short and to the point, with the average track approximately three minutes in length. 12 tracks." - Release the Bats.

And as much as I hear the (non specific) PSF or Akiyama buzz, to me Blues Control seem beget from the prominent clang & snarl of Dead C, who was beget by This Heat, who was beget by Faust, from whose seed it all originated. And thats nothin to sneeze about, unless yous is allergic to greatness. A cd on Holy Mountain is next. Theys on tour right now too, so drop everything & go seeem!

"Borghesia is an electronic music group from Ljubljana, Slovenia, created in 1982 by Aldo Ivancic and Dario Seraval who were members of the alternative theater troupe FV-112/15. Along with Laibach, Borghesia is the most successful band from the territory of former Yugoslavia who launched the activist movement and managed to turn sexual freedom into an important political issue by creating the New Slovenian Art scene. After two cassette-only releases the band recorded their debut vinyl LP Ljubav Je Hladnija Od Smrti (“Love Is Colder Than Death�?) during the winter of 1983-84. The band was eager to use early sampling techniques to construct tracks from cut up radio noises and movie dialogue. They developed their own brand of EBM (Electronic Body Music) that combined symphonic synthesizers (Korg PolySix), funky basslines, military drum beats (Roland TR-808) and harsh, crisp sequenced rhythms that repeat in trance-like loops (Roland TB-303). All songs from Ljubav Je Hladnija Od Smrti are sung/recited in Croatian and use the imagery of the prohibited, tabooed and repressed. Equal parts Chris & Cosey, Cabaret Voltaire, Art of Noise and Rainer Werner Fassbinder. All tracks have been remastered by George Horn at Fantasy Studio in Berkeley. Pressed on blood red vinyl, each disc is manufactured with its own unique pattern: no two discs are identical.

Title: A New For Of Beauty
Format: CD
Label: Bottrop-Boy
Country: Germany
Price: $14.50
"With the release of A New Form of Beauty Irish band Virgin Prunes placed themselves firmly on the map of experimental post-punk. This was the unprecedented cathartic musical experience of the early eighties. Din Glorious was the name of the breathtaking coda of this legendary Prunes session. This type of harrowing noise is also evident on Mattin & Matthew Bowers A New Form of Beauty (1975). Not a follow-up but a magnificent, searing chords of chords. Basque noise expert Mattin has undoubtedly found his blood brother in Matthew Bower, the British godfather of noise-rock. In his Theses on Noise (2006) Mattin wrote: “the old conception of Noise was to believe in freedom; the new conception of Noise is to achieve freedom”. This is noise with a higher aim, this is noise as utopian ideal. Using guitars and electronics, Mattin and Bower mould a relentlessly pounding tsunami of sound. No time to catch your breath in this long, thundering tornado of noise, feedback, distortion and screaming strings. A screeching guitar occasionally lifts its head above the whirling maelstrom. Ghostlike sounds rise towards the surface of this sonic mass; is that a wailing, desolate violin or a radio I hear in the distance? Am I hallucinating or is this indeed that new beauty? Mattin & Bower far exceed the pain threshold. No need to prick up your ears; expect your eardrums to be pierced. Just when you think calm has returned, the duo decides to increase the dose. At the end of their piece Mattin & Bower reveal an unparalleled vertiginous abyss of noise. The listener is transported from high to higher plateaus of sound. Cries for help are suppressed as salvation comes nigh. This is white noise from the dark side. This is indeed a new form of beauty. A New Form Of Beauty (1975) is packed in beautiful new envelope packaging designed and handprinted by Jason Dodge & Christine Roland." -Bottrop-Boy.

Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Pictured in all its tantalizing, eye-popping glory in Hans Pokoras 1001 Record Collector Dreams, this hellishly-rare Austrian avant garde LP from 1972 is nothing short of astonishing. There are no instruments, but rather varying configurations of solo, duo and ensemble vocal improvisations, presumably informed by the aforementioned (and nearly impenetrable) code (or "charts"). Although this might be seen as part of an interesting continuum, this unique and prescient music will stun even the most astute followers of outsider art. Describe it, you say? Sweet Jesus! "Shape note singing for acidheads," perhaps? From an avant-classical perspective, one might mention late-60s Penderecki as a possible reference point (along with Ligeti, or perhaps even Nono). In improvised music, the Spontaneous Music Ensembles larger workshop groups similarly feature masses of vocal sounds; comparisons with Alan Watts This Is It are as plausible as they are inevitable. Ultimately, though, nothing will quite prepare you for this LP. In fact, when an original copy landed at Neros Neptune headquarters, one notorious "outsider" label chief/collector extraordinaires peni-meter became so perilously engorged, that he nearly burst with envy, casting ridiculous offers of rare wax and unmentionable "favors" Neros Neptunes way while begging to let him take over. In other words, it is strongly recommended that you purchase this limited reissue while you can, while securing appropriate spiritual condiments for the trip. After all, you CAN be anyone this time around. Strictly limited edition of 500 copies only. Packaged in high-gloss, tip-on sleeves, and pressed on 180 gram vinyl." - Neros Neptune.

"Well there is much to say about this record of voices with much to say, so perhaps best to allow one who would know to speak the most for all -- "As part of the 25th anniversary of the Butte County Free Music Society, At The North Pole, Easter Day, 1982 follows The Butte County Free Music Society boxset Induced Musical Spasticity and The Brent Lewiis Ensembles Three Christs of Ypsilanti.

Members of the Brent Lewiis Ensemble later migrated to Vomit Launch, Glands of External Secretion, The Idiot, Serious Problmz, and Bananafish magazine. In comparison to the only other available recording of a complete live performance by the group (the side-long “Industrial Barbecue,” on the above-mentioned BUFMS boxset), At The North Pole, Easter Day, 1982 is starker and more minimal overall. Performing as a quintet at a university open mic night in the student union cafeteria, the group had played live only once prior (a “bongos in the dirt” affair in the parking lot of an art gallery), they had yet to amass the collection of ubiquitous tape players and answering machines that accompanied most subsequent performances and recordings.

"As part of the 25th anniversary of the Butte County Free Music Society, Three Christs of Ypsilanti follows Induced Musical Spasticity 4xLP (BUFMS, 2009) and roughly coincides with The Brent Lewiis Ensembles At the North Pole, Easter Day, 1982 (upcoming on What The...?) and, if the master tapes rescue succeeds, the soundtrack to Esthers Brother Is Missing by Maria Estevez. Recording and performing primarily in the mid- to late 1980s, with sporadic efforts in the early 1990s, this barely organized enclave based in rural Northern California ingests and disgorges outsider free music a la Smegma and other bent LAFMS trippers, the UKs A Band, 5 Starcle Men, and the sort of visionaries currently promoted by labels such as Chocolate Monk, Destijl, and Ultra Eczema. Members of the Brent Lewiis Ensemble later migrated to Vomit Launch, Glands of External Secretion, The Idiot, Needles, Serious Prblmz, and Bananafish magazine. Each side of Three Christs of Ypsilanti is dominated by tracks whose lengths meander into double digits. On Side A, "Take It Out and Kill It" is a murky glance at mortification via caninicide, with its ancillary fleas, cockroaches, and especially worms. This is the only large group recording on the album, and as such whirls around in conflicting directions in a manner that one backwater critic long ago described as "schizophrenic muzak." A completely different version of this track was previously released on the Maggie Is a Dot cassette in 1984. On Side B, "Dark Surprise," a 1986 recording from the crossroads of DIY autism and darkened psychedelia, is previously unreleased (the first playback of the master tape didnt happen until 2008). In contrast to the groups usual embrace of any and all kitchen sinks at hand, the recording was made solely with electric guitars, voice, and prerecorded audio frottage. Book-ending both sides are shorter tracks (average length: two minutes); these four excerpts from an after-hours, no-audience guerilla action were recorded in a multistory, split-level university student union, using hurled cafeteria cutlery, defective boomboxes and answering machines blaring prerecorded tape, the public piano, and a variety of unidentified flailing objects. All were previously released on the Mary Jane cassette in 1983." - Siltbreeze.

Price: $10.50
Classic HNAS-offshoot reissue, originally issued on Dom Elchklang in 1989. "During his off hours while a member of the legendary German underground avant-garde group Hirsche Nicht Aufs Sofa, Achim P. Li Khan kept himself busy with a number of unusual side projects. The late 80s were an especially fruitful period for Achim, and it was during this time that his group Brigitte & the Hansen Experience released their only album. Packaged in an unassuming cover, the records two side-long tracks were a mutant space-rock hybrid assembled from distorted samples, stretches of atmospheric interference, and out-of-sync beats so profoundly damaged that the few listeners who had acquired the LP were left disoriented and amazed. Because of the LPs limited edition, its arrival was overlooked at the time, and it has remained an elusive collectible known of by only a lucky few. Now, Psychedelic Pig has endeavored to bring forward this mind-boggling audio collage once again. Remastered from the original tapes, with additional photos and a previously unreleased 17-minute live track, this definitive re-release is set to mystify and delight a fresh population of tuned-in ears worldwide." - Psychedelic Pig.

"Another transmission from the Australian house of Music Your Mind Will Love You. This one has been a long time coming. Taken from various recordings over a period from 05/06, the core duo of brother and sister Michael and Kristina Donnelly are joined by EON in a killer trio setting. Not as psych-acid as some of the recent BOTOS output. Not to say the group doesnt kick up a good racket, its just way spacious and soft sounding at points, like seeing various twinkling stars through hazy fog. Lots of dreamy moments of quite acoustic strum and subtle synth weirdness. The usual battery of instruments, toy and otherwise, are in effect. And of course, LOADS of percussive implosions...but not at all heavy handed. Sounds like a Sunday morning jam with your best friends outside in a garden just after tea. A joyful noise thats pleasing to the skull." - Root Strata.

Price: $10.00
"Decked out in a skullfucked sleeve that looks like a cross between Slayers gorecore classic Seasons In The Abyss and the prison tattoo iconography of original Cleveland gutter punks The Electric Eels, the debut vinyl from Ohios Burning Star Core reconciles the euphoric, physical power of Metal with punk primitive aesthetics and huge lungfuls of drone. The A side is 16 minutes of heavy violin thats more Sonny Sharrock than Tony Conrad, with mainman C Spencer Yeh amassing waves of singing overtones via treated strings and electronics, while Chris Rosing provides the horizontal momentum, accelerating the piece towards the horizon with an epileptic bass drum and some furiously clanking chains. The piece builds to nowhere, growing more potentially eplosive and menacing with each pass, with Yeh stretching his violin to even more extended peaks while never relenting on the tension. The second side features Yeh alone, working through some "sleep deprivation experiments" with a laptop for company. Here he alternates strangulated computer tones that sound liek theyre being torn from a huge electronic harmonica with wraithe-like breaths turning through disconcertingly staggered loops." - David Keenan, WIRE.

"Challenger is a composed work rather than his more improvised work, each piece revolving around a central melodic theme with field recordings, an audio diary bridging the gaps. Its emotions of a period of time set to tape. The sounds range from pure tonal mood to huge electronic crescendos. But whats most remarkable is the use of space, where parts come in and drop to build or recede .When the piano crashes in "Mysteries of the Organ" its almost a frustration of paradise, a rejection of perfection or maybe a jolt of inexplicable life, unable to be translated into proper `communication. Juxtaposed with the quiet haunting of "Hopelessly Devoted" which sounds like a love letter written to outer space, it makes for an album that is both dynamic yet consistent as a full statement."-Plastic.

Title: Come Quietly
Format: 7"
Label: All Hands Electric
Country: USA
Price: $3.75
"Edition of 500. Culled from the archive of unreleased songs by Zachary Cale comes two unearthed gems, available for the first time through All Hands Electric. Recorded during the interim of his second LP "Walking Papers" and his band Illuminations "See-Saw" LP, these two songs were originally cut as demos, but the fresh sound and spontaneity of the recordings warranted a release of their own. "Come Quietly" is a field recording from the modern age, complete with chirping birds and the groan of passing cars. The song is a sort of noir narrative with lyrics that illustrate a dialogue between a captor and his captive. Taking cues from the pre-war folk tradition, Cale adopts the voice of both characters. Featuring mournful mandolins and tortured harmonicas over a countrified mariachi stomp, its as ragged and tuneful as folk music gets, and the inflections in Cales glass-breaking yowl recall some of Kurt Cobains acoustic demos from the Sup Pop heyday. "The Wedding Party" is a stream of consciousness ode to love with lyrical images floating by like faces in train windows. The vocal melody is undeniably catchy, sitting perfectly in the space between hypnotic fingerpicked guitar rhythms and ghost-like backing harmonies courtesy of Prudence Teacup. With its rapid fire couplets and unabashed pop-minded melody it sounds kind of like Bob Dylan covering the Beach Boys in a dimly lit basement. The rush of images and the giddy, pulse like rhythm makes "The Wedding Party" another classic in Zachary Cales growing canon of songs." -All Hands Electric

Title: Walking Papers
Format: LP
Label: All Hands Electric
Country: USA
Price: $10.50
"WALKING PAPERS, the sophomore album by Zachary Cale, marks the artists leap from a four-track-bedroom-folkie to a songwriter of visionary scope. Recorded in 2005 in the legendary Bearsville Sound Studios by Marcata engineer, Kevin Mcmahon (The Walkmen, Titus Andronicus), WALKING PAPERS was granted a belated release in December 2008 on the burgeoning Brooklyn-based label, All Hands Electric. Ghostly in sound, the album evokes the austere finger-style guitar work of John Fahey and the poetic couplets of Townes Van Zandt. Moving away from the lo-fi intimacy of his debut album, OUTLANDER SESSIONS (released on New World of Sound in 2005), Cale is accompanied by an array of musicians. Though at times classically inspired, and at others roots-based, the instrumentation is always understated, providing a focus on lyric and melody. Fittingly, the singers voice has gracefully matured into the road-weary rasp that his story-based lyrics require. WALKING PAPERS exhibits a genuine craft of American tradition; the songs are bona fide gems with every note and lyrical phrase informed by a quiet beauty, both familiar and timeless." - All Hands Electric. “Zachary Cale is a songwriters songwriter, as prolific as he is original. His voice can be delicate for love or wry for satire. The ability to hear what is in a song has guided him well in the making of his own. While the influence of traditional American music is always present in his compositions, he is able to infuse something fresh and new to the form." - John Allen (WFMU).

"A timely reissue of an LP that originally saw the light of day on vinyl, courtesy of the esteemed Finnish label Lal Lal Lal, some time toward the start of this millennium. Well, the 300 copies soon disappeared, Campbell and Lal Lal Lal moved on to further releases and everyone was happy. That is, all apart from those who missed out and had to trawl ebay and rare record lists if they wanted to hear what amounted to only the second Neil Campbell solo record, after 1997s "These premises are no longer bugged". Campbell is of course familiar from his recordings with Vibracathedral Orchestra, Sunroof!, Richard Youngs, The A Band and many more over the past two decades. His current project, Astral Social Club, goes from strength to strength, prompting Dusted magazine to call it "the purest expression of his art of the ecstatic on record". In many ways, "SOL POWR" is the logical precursor to Astral Social Club, with its heavy focus on keyboard-driven electronic pulse flotation - when it was originally released Julian Cope remarked that it "sounds as though Martin Rev had teamed up with Moebius and Roedelius, during their CLUSTER 2 period". This reissue, the first release on Campbells own Music Mundane label, supplements the original vinyl LP with three additional tracks from the same period. Two of them were originally released on a miniscule-edition 7" lathe-cut by Stavangers Gold Soundz Records, while the third was commissioned for download on Brian Lavelles online TechNOH label. They fit right in with the LPs original seven tracks, forming fifty of the most glorious minutes in Campbells not-inconsiderable discography. Edition of 500 in hard DVD style case."

This second edition is pressed on 140g virgin vinyl with pro-printed cover art in an edition of only 250 copies... Memories playing tricks: oh, the gauzy hallucinogens of nostalgia are sloughing off fresh fictions throughout this deeply passionate instrumental collection. Padang Food Tigers attempt to resurrect half-remembered dreams on their debut long player, Born Music, by hybridizing improvisational tactics with the trappings of traditional tropes. Influenced by artists such as Scott Tuma, Taku Sugimoto, Loren Connors, Bruce Langhorne Boxhead Ensemble and Tetuzi Akiyama, the groups two members (Stephen Lewis and Spencer Grady) seek to capture the potency of moment, free from all artifice and studied consciousness, enveloped in the players close fraternal bond. The duration and form of tracks -- brimming with banjo, guitar, piano, music boxes and fragments of history -- are dictated by emotional weight, by intuition, not expectation. Born Music (a gesture to the dried river that flows at the back of Lewis home in South London and to the instinctive nature of the sounds contained within) is the duos follow-up to their Go Down, Moses EP, which was released on Under The Spire." -Blackest Rainbow

"A rare document of a brief arc in Charalambides 17 year (and counting) trajectory, somewhere between the extreme spatial attenuation of the long gone Crucial Blast CDR Being As Is and the gentle intergalactic trio sway of the kranky disk Unknown Spin- and quite distance from both the exclamatory exhalations of Joy Shapes and the layered songcraft of Likeness. These are spartan duets of formalistic near-symmetry, a reminder that there was a time when Charalambides swung as close to the axis of Incus and FMP as to that of Takoma and ESP. Christina (voice) and Tom Carter (guitar) improvise non-textual melodic lines around an locus of mirror clarity, occasionally overlapping various strands using two DAT machines and a mixing board, in a nod to the pre ProTools digital scrap heap. Originally issued as a Peter King lathe cut LP on Eclipse Records in an edition of 100 in 2000, the reissue of this extreme rarity is remastered from a superior source for maximum clarity.

Fans of the bands most recent, more song-based work will find this relevatory, long-time listeners will say ahhhh and settle in for the flight. Heavy vinyl, limited pressing, cover handiwork by Tom, the first release in years from Klang and a sign perhaps of a truly epic revival." "Long-awaited Klang debut of Charalambides. This record has been brewing since 2000, and is now finally available under the auspices of Eclipse/Klang.

"Formed 1978 in New York, Circle X was born out of the ashes of No Fun and the I-Holes as Louisvilles first punk rock band. Once the lineup of Circle X solidified, the formerly-punk band lunged headfirst into weirder, artier territory. Whether the big citys burgeoning No Wave scene influenced Circle X or they influenced the scene is unclear; what is clear, though, is that Circle X was the most unique, most mysterious, and most un-heralded band hailing from that place and time. In France for nine months with new manager Bernard Zekri, Circle X toured from their base in Dijon, garnering strong press and stronger public reaction while writing new material as they went. An untitled four-song EP saw the light of day in 1979. That untitled 12-inch debut was practically without antecedent. Its a lurching, squalling monster. Identified only by a symbol on the cover (a spray-painted circle with an "X" through it; the spelled-out name first appeared in 83), it pits Pinottis screeched vocals against Witsiepe and the Letendres bass-less, barely contained distorto-blare. The hatred and rage on this thing is palpable and when it coalesces perfectly with the music, as it does on the lead track, Tender, its pretty damn effective. Nothing sounded like this in 1979. They arrived in New York at the tail end of No Wave, at the same time that equally ornery bands like Swans and Sonic Youth were getting revved up. Circle X are every bit as distinctive and attitudinal as Throbbing Gristle, PiL, Theoretical Girls, DNA, or Mars, yet they dont much sound like any of them. We proudly represent this masterpiece after thirty years again for the public. It has lost none of its intensity and rage. 180 gram vinyl in tip-on jackets that bear the original artwork and poly lined black inner sleeve plus liner notes." - Insolito.

Artist: CLARK, TODD TAMANEND
Title: Nova Psychedelia (1975-85)
Format: Double CD
Label: Anopheles
Country: USA
Price: $14.25
"Outside of his native Pennsylvania-West Virginia stomping grounds, Todd Tamanend Clark remains one of the least known North American underground artists in the lost music DIY field of his era, considering he has collaborated with and shared time with many of his peers over the years (Cheetah Chrome, Allen Ravenstine, Stiv Bators), as well as progenitors (Dorothy Moskowitz of United States of America, Robert Moog, William Burroughs), his significant body of recorded (and printed) work was always made in small runs and has remained elusive and highly collectible to this day. This 2CD set collects all of his released vinyl recordings from 1975-1985, including those issued as The Stars (1975 45 rpm and eight-track cartridge material), The Eyes ( New Gods: Aardvark Thru Zymurgy LP from 1977), Todd Clark Group ( Were Not Safe! LP from 79), and Todd Clark ( Into the Vision LP from 84, plus two 45s released in the first half of the 80s). He has since appended his name to reflect his Native American roots. This document features a 20 page booklet, with Todds own personal history included, with notes on each track (all 33 of em, total time for this set is over 150 minutes of music), and a host of great photos and artwork. His muse may remain a mystery after you experience this wide range of sounds, which might very well be Anopheles Records most ambitious and out there release to date, but he leaves tangible clues and some out and out hooks with which to grab onto: great reworkings of Hungry (Paul Revere and the Raiders) and I Had Too Much To Dream Last Night (Electric Prunes), his bizarre slo-mo take on Two Thousand Light Years From Home (from his debut 45 from 75) are some points of reference, but its when Todd cuts loose on original material that his truly mesmerizing, bent vision takes hold of your cranium and refuses to let go. His personal magnetosphere is quite intoxicating, often challenging, and just plain hallucinatory. Thats Nova Psychedelia ..." - Anopheles

Title: Nothing Makes Any Sense
Format: CD
Label: No Fun
Country: USA
Price: $8.50
"A constantly shifting and engaging long-form piece of developed drone, foreboding melody, and harsh grit, Nothing Makes Any Sense finds Lee Ranaldo (Sonic Youth), Nels Cline (Nels Cline Singers, Wilco), and Alan Licht pushing their guitars into a cacophonous state that bears much influence from the post-jazz fields theyve all cut their teeth in, but also bearing down a forceful brutality that has sometimes eluded their past material. While Carlos Giffoni uses his analog Synth mastery to adequately contend and mesh seamlessly with the trio of strings, letting his analog noise pulsate and pierce with its own sense of contained stampede. This collaboration was recorded in February of this year at the sadly-defunct NYC venue Tonic and was mixed and mastered by the ubiquitous James Plotkin. Included with the packaging are ink drawings from Lee Ranaldo and a review of Lou Reeds live classic Rock N Roll Animal by cult musician/Creem scribe Peter Laughner, which includes a line which bestowed this album with its title." - No Fun.

Title: One Jack Shy Of A Cycle
Format: LP
Label: Black Dirt
Country: USA
Price: $14.50
"There is a fine line between illumination and obscuration when one is attempting to interpret the meaning of a song cycle. Is the narrator singing from experience or is there an embodiment of characters, real or imagined, happening? When listening to the new record by Coach Fingers from beginning to end, a story is not necessarily being told in a straight narrative form, but perhaps taking a cue from a literary background, One Jack Shy of a Cycle can be perceived as a metafiction in song form. Who is the fool with the unsteady hands? What poor soul has found his demise at the barrel end of Jacks rifle? Along what shoreline is the tortured couple from Things Get Stranger travelling? Why is a bullfrog singing about happiness and doubt? Who is having such trouble sleeping on Side 2, and why? Are there literally turkeys falling out of the trees as the dawn breaks to end the record? Recurring themes of failed relationships, misunderstandings, anxiety and passing are woven throughout this rock and roll record as easily as they would be in a collection of short stories. Like images flickering through a shadow play screen, Coach Fingers has drawn upon the talents of the community of musicians surrounding Black Dirt Studio, to project the visage of a band upon the collection of tales captured on these sides. And in the process has conjured the aural equivalent of metempsychosis, passing life stories through song into the grooves of vinyl." - Black Dirt. Edition of 500.

Title: The Great Migration / Quarter Century
Format: LP
Label: Mad Monk
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"Turner has been kicking around the NYC folk scene for quite a few years now, but this is, perhaps inexplicably, his first foray onto wax. While most singer / songwriters these days seem to draw most of their water from Iron and Wine via Pavement and back again, Turner sounds like he began his musical education listening to Gershwin player piano rolls and quit buying records somewhere around the time Dylan brought it all back home. Lyrically, Turner can turn a phrase with the best of em, and the gloriously ramshackle accompaniment is Mungo Jerry meets Herman Dune sharing a squat in Tin Pan Alley. This LP combines two of Turners self-released CDs, and is as good an introduction to his wonderful music as any. Heres what Jeweled Antler head honcho Glenn Donaldson sez about Turner: "Cody is pre-war, Old Testament & A Confederate General from Big Sur." Err°≠nuff said, no?"" - Mad Monk.

DVD features “From The Mylar Chamber,” an original slideshow of 60 mylar photographs with soundtrack by Angus MacLise and original poetry by Ira Cohen. J. Hoberman in the Mar. 16, 2006 Village Voice: “Part Dr. Strange, part Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome, [The Invasion of Thunderbolt Pagoda is] so High 60s that you emerge from its 20-minute vision perched full-lotus on a cloud of incense, chatting with a white rabbit and smoking a banana…. Invasion is a languidly opiated costume ball in which an assortment of masked and painted bohos, some sporting outsize elf ears, loll about a candlelit, Mylar-lined set, blowing soap bubbles and nibbling majoon. …In lieu of action, Cohen uses all manner of superimposition and prismatic image-splitting; his big effect, however, is the deliquescent Mylar reflection. What saves Invasion from preciosity is the vague menace of Angus MacLises improvised pan-piping, tabla-tapping, creature-yipping score. Although this masterpiece of Tibetan-Moroccan-Druidic trance music was reissued on CD several years ago, it truly blossoms in conjunction with the exotic smorgasbord served at Cohens psychedelicatessen.” - Boo-Hooray.

More surprising is that they maintain a high standard of quality. "The Two Sides of Tim Cohen" LP came and went in the blink of an eye. Recorded after his stint in Black Fiction and before his current set-up in the Fresh & Onlys, "Two Sides.." was a fresh dose of pure outsider pop with drum machines and keyboards. For a follow up, "Laugh Tracks" finds Tim in a more fleshed out full-bodied approach, complete with horn arrangements.

Price: $12.50
"Cremations is a collection of early demo/live/and unreleased tracks from Cold Cave. From the projects isolated beginnings to the recent full band line-up the development of this singular musical entity is documented here in its icy electronic glory. From Cold Caves infancy sexual identity and oblique existentialism have been expressed through biting lyrics and electronic minimalism. Rarely has the human condition been exposed so brazenly as in "Sex Ads". Melodies, noise and rhythms clash as stories from below the surface are retold. From the demo LP Coma Potion, which featured a rugged stripped down distortion, to the suggestive Electronic Dreams tour cassette (featuring the voice of Max Morton on the track "Heavenly Metals"). Cold Cave has developed its own brand of genre defying electronic music, without ever betraying its dark roots. Love and pornography, Industrial music and traditionalism, poetry and profanity all mix together in a hedonistic, cocktail of nihilistic nights and mournful mornings. Cremations collects all this work for the first and last time." - Hospital Productions. First pressing still available.

Title: Caesarean
Format: LP
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $10.50
"As Concern, Gordon Ashworth has explored drone music through an inspection of the textural components of acoustic instruments and recording processes. On CŰ䳳arean the palette presented is a singularly precise one. Using simple sources (piano, clarinet, banjo, shrutti box, and acoustic guitar), tape processing (1/4°± and cassette), and reverberation, Ashworth crafts delicate tape music through transforming repetitions and obscured fidelity. The emotional and physical presence of CŰ䳳arean is overwhelming; sounding simultaneously natural and alien. The instrumentation and field recordings are both stripped of their defining characteristics; creating a balance between the harmonic characters of both, a pure transformation empty of excess and desire. Time held in suspension. Released on compact disc by Slow Flow (Japan). In an edition of 500 copies with black and white reverse board jackets and printed labels. " - Arbor.

Not so either some Souths gonna rise again moonshine. More so a return to a way of presenting a music in the context of a tradition (something those boys in the band are pretty high on.) But this isnt your grandfathers Bakersfield were dealing with. Tho the tongue of the balladeer may spin tales ripe with a cast of characters including the Pastor Randolph Healey, Cheese Frog, the man from HHS, Uncle Ernie, that guy with the black mustache and red Caddy who stole your girl, and the true born sons of Levi, he sings them not only with the twang of the roadhouse, but tainted with the grit of the streets of the big city. As one casual listener once noted to the band after a performance, You guys play both types Country and Psych. And its true that the sounds contained on After Hours do act on the mind as much as they tug at the heartstrings. Replete with tales of mental instability, infidelity, drunken advice, wartime hucksters, heartbreak, and redemption, the first album by D Charles with his backing band will surely immediately stand out amongst the shards of gothic Americana that litter our fair sonic landscape.Edition of 500 Recorded at Black Dirt Studio"- Black Dirt. Black Dirt is the new in-house label from Jason Meaghers (NNCK, K Salvatore, Coach Fingers, D Charles Speer and the Helix, etc...) Black Dirt Studios in upstate New York.

Title: Past Or Beyond/Canaanite Builder
Format: 7"
Label: Sound@One
Country: USA
Price: $3.75
"Seeking refuge in songcraft, D. Charles Speer and the Helix spin tales of mental instability and institutional exploitation into a thick, heady, groove laden brew. The professorial attack of the ivories, the sear of the strings, the pounding of drum skins amass into a righteous storm bound to overwhelm those uncoverted. This is an unholy mix of heart ripped vocal, Longhair piano, and guitar work drawing from both Mike Bloomfield and Norman Westberg. Featuring silk screened covers and hand stamped interiors, these retro-radicals propose the final alignment of Khnum with the phoenix." Features members of NNNK and Sunburned Hand Of The Man.

Title: Drums And Nature
Format: CD
Label: De Maria, Walter
Country: USA
Price: $10.50
"..In 1957, (De Maria) graduated from the University of California at Berkeley, where he earned his M.F.A. in painting two years later. De Maria and his friend, the avant-garde composer La Monte Young, participated in Happenings and theatrical productions (including very early Fluxus events) in the San Francisco area. In 1960, De Maria moved to New York; here he wrote essays on art, which were published in 1963 in Youngs "An Anthology", and took part in Happenings and multimedia presentations. In 1961, he made his first wooden box sculptures. De Maria and Robert Whitman opened the Great Jones Street gallery in New York in 1963; the same year, De Marias first solo show of sculpture was presented there. This year, he worked as a drummer for the rock group The Velvet Underground. He continued to work in wood, began his "invisible drawings," and composed music. With the support of collector Robert C. Scull, De Maria started making pieces in metal in 1965. De Maria emerged as a leader of the Earthworks movement in 1968 when he filled the Galerie Heiner Friedrich in Munich with dirt. This year, he also made his The Mile Long Drawing in the Desert in the Mojave Desert for Walls in the Desert, a project, originally conceived in 1962, which is to consist of two parallel mile-long walls. In 1968, he also participated in Documenta in Kassel. A major exhibition of De Marias sculpture was held at the Kunstmuseum Basel in 1972. Earthworks and serial geometric sculpture continue to occupy De Maria in the 1970s: his Three Continent Project was completed in 1972 and the Lightning Field in New Mexico was finished in 1977. That same year, De Maria recreated his Earth Room at the Heiner Friedrich Gallery in New York. The artist lives in New York." -Guggenheim. Self released CD (with almost no distribution) featuring De Marias tribal drumming mixed with field recordings (as the title implies). The two pieces, Cricket Music and Ocean Music, were originally recorded in 1964 and 1968 (evidently with some help from Tony Conrad). Restocked yet again... Very highly recommended!

One night last winter, Dead Machines and The Haunting performed a gig where the sole audience was the other band (and not cause no one showed up..no one else was invitied). This split LP is a document of this cold night of Distant Sound. Dead Machines began the night with possibly their strangest, most obscure set to date. The two players are Sound and No Sound. More accurately: what I have always thought the sound of a dying machine would be. The Hauntings set is equally as slow. Haze fades in and out. Talk about living rooms and fields and things that are far. Haunting gigs are very few and far inbetween and this happens to be their first. We all felt kinda weird afterwords, but it also totally ruled. Like we all had sex or something. Ewww." - Gods Of Tundra.

"In shadow, he appears neanderthal; in light, he waxes angelic. Who is Dead Western? He is a man of a gaping mouth, out of which pours as readily as water from a faucet ” a haunting, bewildering, beautiful voice, reminiscent of Scott Walker (circa Climate of Hunter). This bellowing voice, like an ancient reptile, slithers and wraps itself around the most tender acoustic melodies. Dead Western sounds like a forest growing (the throatless groaning of age-old trees); feels like a Victorian passage through limbo (grey, ominous); looks like a Grecian statue (as drawn by Robert Crumb). This is the sort of music one feels profoundly acquainted with but not something generally found in record format. It is the shifting of rock, the scuttling of insects, the hissing of the wind: frightful, eternal." Limited to 500 copies on clear vinyl with die-cut, full color sleeves." -Weird Forest

Title: Evocation
Format: CD
Label: No Fun

Price: $8.50
"Consisting of Nate Young (Wolf Eyes) and Steve Kenney, Demons explore near-epileptic fits of droning synth textures that elicit comfortable remembrances of electronic-obsessed forefathers like Stockhausen and Cluster whilst simultaneously bludgeoning forward with the grating and scraping atonal complexities of Whitehouse and Throbbing Gristle. Having already rallied a fervorous flux of supporters with discomforting psychedelic multi-media performances and a slew of cryptic releases, among them this years fetishistic Life Destroyer box set, Evocation is an appropriately elaborate and accomplished approximation of their shrewd identity. Subterranean analog rumbles compete with laser-sharp extraterrestial blasts and hums, both contrasts birthing an ominous hallucination of impending dread. The four pieces here fixate into an almost narrative concoction, forming an abstract portrait that feeds its murky sonics into perplexing vibrations that force one forth into their path just as much as they delight in crafting intriguing unease. With artwork contributed by the duos frequent visual collaborator Alivia Zivich, Evocation, which happens to be Demons first CD release, is as apt a proper declaration as any, seamlessly crafting their steady and intricate synth-scapes with the darkly psychedelic images such creations naturally elicit within the psyches of attentive devotees." - No Fun.

The hushed, layered, hazy and downcast psychedelia might remind you of various early New Zealand pop crews of the Flying Nun sort (slowed to 1/4 speed). Or you could go back to the UK and talk about Sarah Records, though theres often something weirder woven into the compositions. The 13 songs are brief — the longest is under three minutes, a handful shorter than two — but they work together as a larger patchwork." -Stereogum

"Dimples presents a marrow-deep comprehension of rocks most striking moves, strips them of their parts and leaves them up on blocks, as a warning. “I Can Feel You” chugs and chings through a nervy, slicked-down run through West Coast punk delinquency; “Heaven Blotted Regions” throws out the band and leaves Parme alone with a guitar and a drum machine, ripping out the sort of sleazy, Leisure Suit Larry-esque, yet highly personal ballad that sticks to the wall with effortless attitude.

Crackles of electronic fire, tremolo-infused waves of sustained guitar, broken music boxes and found sounds among all other sorts of unfounded wails of gargantuan melancholy drone, Burke and Dimuzios collaboration is a forceful collection of early industrial sound ruination combined with classic Krautrock ambiance of the Tangerine Dream/Cluster ilk reassuringly composed into something wholly modern and powerful." - No Fun

Title: Coyotes Call
Format: LP
Label: Fusetron
Country: USA
Price: $5.50
"Way-above-average improv from Japan. Electric strings (guitars?), saxophones, electronics, and samples move with unexpected ease frommeditative passages to intense blow-outs to free scatter. Sax player Yoshinori Yanagawa plays with the same sort of depth and passion as Albert Ayler--no fakin, no academic rendering. But hes only part of a much larger whole. The wash of precision rumble and sound-tweaking that surrounds everything creates chaos from an intensely ordered technology. Strange (not "weird"), exciting music."-Eddie Flowers. "An intensely intriguing IIIrd album from this Japanese guitar/sax/electronics trio, ostensibly in four parts; parts 01. & 04. being short nursery soundscapes, the curtain rise & fall for the mammoth central volcanic continent which is itself shattered into a flies-eye multitude of alternately blasting, then conversational fragments. Yoshinori Yanagawas saxophones veer between Brotzmanesque screams and the deep bowel-rumble of a severe high-colonic impaction (especially when played at 33.3rpm - later, at 45, things resumed a more distinctly saxophonic tone). Electronics dominate most of the tectonic mood swinging going on; Toyohiro Okazaki (& guest sample wrangler Syohei Iwasaki) comes on like some demonic incarnation of Ron Grainers BBC Radiophonic Workshop. Fujio Kimuras "electric strings" are so convincingly grafted on to electronics wall that they together describe a single, enclosed chunk of improvised airspace, which houses the fluttering horn. Coyotes Call is at times an intense and demanding listen, exploring a kind of electronoise-jazz (sans drums) landmass only hitherto trod by hardy souls (Borbeto/Voice Crack collabs being the obvious precedent). Definitely worthy of much further investigation." -Tim Cornelius; Opprobrium.

"In January and February of this year L.R.J. Martens spent his days in Big Island, Hawaii to focus on the communication of Dolphins. For this lp his encounter with a group of spinner dolphins and humphback whales was translated to audio postcards. In three epic new age compositions Martens seeks the ultimate sound for the Cetacean Nation, of which he is one of the official composers. Traces of esoteric seventies fusion and the 3D universes of Jean-Luc Bozzoli are gently transformed to artistic sound relaxation and aquatic poetry. L.R.J. Martens is one of the key figures in the Belgian DIY avant-garde scene. With labels such as Imvated, Bread and Animals and Taped Sounds he gave new energy to the cassette underground in Belgium. With a background in various noise sensations and neo-dadaistic sound play, he now found his ying and yang in Dolphins Into The Future.

Title: Palm Fronds
Format: CD
Label: Catsup Plate
Country: USA
Price: $8.75
"The Double that you hear on Palm Fronds is very different than what founding members David Greenhill and Jeff McLeod originally conceived. The band began as a guitar/drum math-rock-cum-outre-blues duo replete with intricate time signatures, multiple song sections, and an overall sense of angular complexity. After time, the two decided to focus on simplified musical structures and a more fleshed-out instrumentation and added two new members, Donald Beaman and Jacob Morris. But prior to recording what would be called Palm Fronds, Jeff hurt his handŰѳŰѹpreventing him from drumming while it healed. Instead of postponing the recording, the band opted regroup and reconceive of the songs without the traditional drum kit. They experimented with drum machines and other electronic textures, learning as they went along. "Mistakes" that sounded good were left in (the band has a deep respect for Enos approach to music making a la Oblique Strategies, etc.) and discoveries used in one song influenced the sound palette in the others. The songs quickly took on a unique sound that was reminiscent ofŰѳŰѹbut ultimately distinct fromŰѳŰѹthe bands live shows. Because of this, Palm Fronds is a compelling listen on a number of levels. The songs themselves could be described as singer-songwriter in scope; I hear echoes of mid-to-late period Smog and even "Horse With No Name"-era America (especially on "Standing on a Levee," though some folks disagree). But the production, drum machines, and general vibe have a wonderfully overmodulated digital crunch, plenty of echo, broken electronics and all sorts of whatsit thrown into the mix. Which is to say that all that songwriter stuff, when The Double finally let you hear it, owes a lot to a bunch of digital dub and experimental electronic types. But through all this Palm Fronds has an impeccable balance; the production never overwhelms or obscures the essential song. So with Palm Fronds youve got ear candy AND brain candy when you get right down to itlucky you." - Catsup Plate.

Title: Imperial Distortion
Format: Double CD
Label: Hospital Productions
Country: USA
Price: $12.25
"What does a person do when faced with a work like Imperial Distortion? There are rare moments in an artists work where they reveal a greater truth. Kevin Drumm has already made such a statement with his last major solo work, 2002s Sheer Hellish Miasma. Where that record took noise music to a new level of near-impenetrable exactitude, Imperial Distortion is an altogether different beast. Beauty as an aesthetic can be as terrifying as horror, desire unfulfilled, romance that lingers and never goes away, no matter how disappointing. A preoccupation with death can be the only result. On this extended long-form release, Kevin Drumm comes face to face with minimal drone music and confronts the genre by providing one of its absolute pinnacles at the forefront; movement. Drone music at its most concentrated and ably performed has build and depth in its tones. Although there might be the illusion of stasis, the opposite is true. From the opening 20-minute track Guillain-Barre, the mood of the album is laid clear. The arrangements are shadowy layers of soundtrack-like tones not entirely unlike the work that Popul Vuh provided for Herzogs films. By track two, More Blood and Guts, with its ominous bell tones, it becomes apparent that there is a true nothing thats associated with these sounds, other than the mood-inducing hypnosis and the feeling of drowning, yet having no ability to fight the slow pull. The middle portion of the record is Snow, which was released as a limited cassette last year on Hospital Productions. This material was a teaser for the full album Imperial Distortion. The tracks have an almost ballad-esque sense of elegance, using tone and frequency as melodic portals to nowhere. The sustain in the piece suggests a weight while remaining alarmingly pleasant to the ears. The tension suggests an anxiety that never truly dies. The alarm comes from the juxtaposition of tones and mood. While the tones may sound gorgeous in their purity, the mood implies a profound sense of unease and perhaps an acceptance of the inevitability of existential dilemma. This point is most thoroughly evidenced by the albums closer, We All Get It In the End. While the piece starts out with lullaby ease, a few minutes in, an equally severe dark drone eclipses the light and the night takes over. Here in the enveloped sounds, the clouds pass over the moonlight creating a spectral dark that is unforgettable in its intensity. To answer the initial question of Imperial Distortion, this is a work that commands intellectual and emotional commitment on the levels of the greatest works to come from this genre. Kevin Drumm has accomplished that rare balance to create a masterwork that no one has yet to come close to in this era. Your best bet is to surrender."-Hospital. Repressed!

"Formed in 2001, the Duchess of Saigon were Mary and Richard. Two artists, they met at UC Davis, started seeing each other and then formed a band. Though Richard had been in a handful of Sacramento bands (Rick & the Young Rogues, Sir & the Young Men), Duchess was Marys first band. She was handed the drum duties...and good thing, too! Because she was unencumbered by formal lessons, Mary developed a unique drumming style in which she would keep the beat with her feet and play the melody with her hands. The unconventional approach to percussion, as well as her ethereal backing vocals, gave Richards VU-influenced garage-pop songs an excellent twist. Byron Coley of The Wire likened them to the Carpenters if played by the Shaggs. The first time I saw Duchess of Saigon, they were horrible. Just a goddamn mess of a band. However, the second time, six months later, they convinced me they were the best band in town and I hurriedly asked them if I could put out a record. That record is Easter Queen. We pressed 300, it finally went out of print. Another Sacramento label, Plastic Idol, put out their second seven inch. It is as good as the first. The Duchess were working on an album, but recording and equipment problems kept dragging the project on. Mary, frustrated with her drumming, lost interest and quit. About a year later, both Mary and Richard picked up and moved to Florida and then to Detroit. Fall of 2010, I was going through the S.S. archives and came upon a tape from the 2005 abandoned album sessions. Wow! Time has been very, very good to the Duchess of Saigon! I bumped into Richard when he was visiting Sacramento and proposed to put out a limited pressing of unreleased Duchess songs. He said, "Go for it!" and here it is! This limited edition contains 16 songs culled from sessions recorded by Chris Woodhouse from 2002 to 2005, every one of them as good as anything on the Duchess of Saigons two aforementioned EPs.

"Best known for his collaborations with people like Paul Flaherty, Michael Flower and Thurston Moore as well as a year-and-a-half stint as the drummer for Bj Volta tour, Chris Corsano is widely considered to be one of the best and most adaptive drummers of his generation. Equally adaptive is UK saxophone giant, Paul Dunmall, who has worked disparately with jazz greats like Alice Coltrane and Evan Parker as well as funk and folk acts like Johnny Guitar Watson and Dando Shaft. After a chance meeting in a taxi line at the Lisbon Airport, a surreal intertwining of tours emanated. In between the lasers, confetti and face-painted fans at Plymouth Pavillions and Wolverhampton Civic Hall, Chris left the Bjmega-tour to get down to business alongside the prolific and imaginative Dunmall for some vital improvisation at Slak Bar in Cheltenham, England. This wonderfully recorded live set begins with Dunmall swirling away on the border pipes (he may be the preeminent improvisor using bagpipes). What follows is an impulsive and lyrical improvisation, alternatingly sparse and impossibly textured. Corsanos skittering marries perfectly with Dunmalls rapid-fire lines. The melodies are expertly uncoiled so that they remain charged whether the tempo is at full speed or crawling. The set ends furiously and with the impression that this duo was fated to work together." - ESP-Disk.

"I Swear Ill Never Let You Go" is a two and a half minute downer-pop gem, four harmonies and all. The A-side, "Pretty Joanna," is virtually the opposite with a melody buried under layers of warm cascading fuzz and feedback." - Sacred Bones.

Title: Black Noise Practitioner
Format: Double LP
Label: Skul
Country: USA
Price: $14.50
"In 1979 Steven Parrino first performed "guitar grind" which consisted of two guitars grinding into each other screaming feedback and sonic bliss. In 1997 Parrino conceptualized what was to be his new musical focus, a sound electric and brutal, and after a few small obscure shows, ELECTROPHILIA was born. A hard to find 10 inch lp, cd single and 7" single were released between then and 2002 when Jutta Koether, long time noise & performance artist in her own right, joined the band. With Koether and Parrrino mashing ideas and sounds ELECTROPHILIA has expanded and made its presence felt in shows around NYC. These shows have been documented, and four have been collected and turned into this double lp release: ELECTROPHILIA Black Noise Practitioner. The sound of ELECTROPHILIA evokes a mix of the sonic denseness of Lou Reeds Metal Machine Music, the free screech of Albert Ayler, the extreme attack of Merzbow and the raw dirt of the Stooges. ELECTROPHILIA is extreme psychedelic noise; brutal electric bass manipulations interwoven with freezing synth textures. Includes guest musicians: trk. 1: Christopher Pahud (Honey for Petzi). trk. 3: Lizzi Bougatsos (Gang Gang Dance, Angelblood) & John Gernand." - Skul. Jutta Koether was a member of Diadal with Rita Ackermann and also released the Outer Sound Project CD of Ecstatic Peace. Beautiful gatefold jacket.

Title: Coveting
Format: LP
Label: Not Not Fun
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"Misery wears many masks, but Tulare, California fatalist Jon Borges has etched his mark on most of them. For at least half a decade, hes pursued increasingly suicidal tendencies under his Pedestrian Deposit guise (which is currently on hiatus), splicing subdued loops of morbid beauty against savage canyons of harsh noise histrionics. Lately, though, hes been straying more and more from this aggressive exercise in contrasts in favor of his Emaciator alias, which draws from the same dark wellspring of bitter memories and bipolar rage but, instead of unleashing it in grand frenzies, bottles everything up inside until it seeps out of the pores. Early efforts/cassettes retained a strain of buzzing nausea reminiscent of his PD days, but the last 12 months have witnessed a complete abandonment of any ties to the past. Times are still bleak, sure, but the grey prisms of brooding ambience Borges now conjures and slowly collapses convey a depth of mood and subtlety far surpassing simple signifiers like indifference, resentment, or remorse. Coveting collects together five exquisite Emaciator compositions (including two particularly riveting songs that were debuted live at Echo Curio) for a harrowing 40 minutes of troubled solace, crisscrossing suicide guitar lines, and entranced self-reflection. Meditation is a myth; desire does not sleep. Black vinyl LPs in shrinkwrapped jackets with photography and layout by Borges. Mastered by Pete Swanson, edition of 430."-Not Not Fun

Title: Hallo Milk
Format: CD
Label: Schneeball
Country: Germany
Price: $12.00
"The No-Neck Blues Band presents the music of Embryo in anticipation of collaborative double LP to be released by De Stijl in September. Embryo is the longest running of the German underground collectives, formed by Christian Burchard after he left Amon Duul 2 in 1969. "Bremen 1971" and "Father, Son, and Holy Ghost" (1972) present the band at their peak period of Kraut - jazz -psych exploration, with "Father" being one of the peak records of its genre. "Live" (1976) has Embryo at a weaker point, caught in a "Bitches Brew"-obsessed fusion era that would soon be abandoned by Burchard and company for Eastern leanings. "Reise" (1978) and "(La Blama Sparozzi)" (1980) are pinnacle acheivements of their kind, presenting Embryos progressive sound combined with that of the indiginous musicians they encountered while caravan traveling throughout Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, and India. "Hallo Mik" (2003) lets you hear what Embryo is up to now, which is a sort of hybrid cache of ethnicities, a world music for savants, and features Chris Karrer and Deiter Serfas of Amon Duul 2 and Lothar Stahl of Checkpoint Charlie, among others. A warning for the wise: those with a low tolerance for ethno-jazz best not venture past 72, and then wait for the NNCK collabo record which we understand minimizes the funk." -Schneeball

"On Sunday is the initial release of recorded material from ENOS SLAUGHTER: a collaboration of three peripherial, improvising characters based in NYC. Between the years of 00 and 02 David Shuford (of No-neck Blues Band and Suntanama), Marc Orleans (Sunburned Hand of the Man) and Carter Thornton (IZITITIZ) met regularly at Harlems Hinthouse, documenting each meeting on an insect field recorder. The music on this album is born from those sessions.The resulting material contrasts heavily abstract, electric, arhythmic explorations with foot stomping, acoustic, drone centered swimming. A description of the instrumentation may serve to describe the music better than any genre comparison: banjos, clavinet, trombones, bowed and plucked strings, disoriented electric guitars and a range of sounds from unidentifiable sources can all seen at different times approaching and receding just below the surface. Aptly described by a regular onlooker as "mind erasure". Vinyl only, limited to a pressing of 500." - Conduit Creations.

Artist: ENSEMBLE ECONOMIQUE
Title: Standing Still, Facing Forward
Format: LP
Label: Amish
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Brian Pyle is Ensemble Economique. This is the first LP release from Ensemble Economique. Digitalis issued the At the Foot of Nameless Roads CD in 2008. Both recordings are important primers to Pyles nascent invocations of Holger Czukays Cannaxis (on No GPS) and Karlheinz Stockhausens Kontake (on At the Foot). With Standing Still, Facing Forward Ensemble Economique provides the most mature realization of Pyles compositional process, which utilizes found sounds, field recordings, and musical performance that he later meticulously edits, layers, and loops in the studio. The effects of these processes are dramatic, cinematic and conceptually rigorous and this recording evidences Pyle as an important new composer emerging out of the long and storied tradition of West Coast experimentalism. Utilizing a delicate combination of the homespun improvisation of his other project, Starving Weirdos (whose work sounds like an American echo of AMM) with his own unique variation on the European avant-garde in Ensemble Economique, Pyles practice involves a dense approach to composition akin to assemblage. But unlike electronic and laptop composition, Pyles studio work aims to re-establish an organicism associated with live (or, in the case of the field recordings, lived) performance that pushes the studio out into nature and nature into the studio. In short, the Northern Californian landscape plays an integral part in Ensemble Economiques soundscapes, and this record captures much of the atmosphere of Pyles home terrain." LP comes wrapped in a letter-pressed band and contains a 16-page art book." -Amish

Country: Belgium
Price: $20.00
"Sateenkaarisuudelma is my fourth solo album under the name Es. The double LP is a trilogy containing three independent parts: Sateenkaarisuudelma, Maailmankaari and Pianokaari. Sateenkaarisuudelma contains songs Ive played live since 2002. These songs were composed and recorded during the same period I made Kaikkeuden kauneus ja k䳩tt䭤tts cd. At some point it became obvious I was doing two albums at once. Also I soon realised that these songs would benefit and work well in vinyl format allowing me to divide songs to different sides and also give them an aging and changing format. With Sateenkaarisuudelma ready for pressing already in July 2004 I started my journey to Canada, Toronto where I studied fine arts for four months. During this time I also made a ten day tour in USA with Miriam Goldberg on cello, Jeffrey Alexander on guitar and effects, Tara Burke on vocals and keyboard. Shary Boyle did live drawings on overhead projectors. It was an excellent collaboration and the fruits can be heard on the second LPs side C. Maailmankaari I and II were recorded in Boston at the WMBR radio station. Side D finishes of the trilogy with two songs composed as early as 2002. Ive recorded the first song Universaali totuus at least five or six times. This version was recorded in June of 2005 just before sending it to pressing. Pianokaari was mutilated, cut and changed for three years. These two songs span the whole duration of the recording and creation of this double album. All this time Juri Puhakka was working on the drawings on the sleeves. Featured on the cover is me with rainbows ponting directly at my hands. It represents hope for understanding dreams are within ones grasp. Other musicians featured on the covers are Suvi M䫩nen who has been a part of the Es live line-up many times. Jan Anderzen and I have collaborated on so many occasions that the facts get blurred. Elissa M䤴t䮥n has appeared on all but the first album and continues to contribute her vocals to Es live shows as well as the recorded releases. Other musicians on the album are Jeffrey Alexander and Miriam Goldberg from the Black Forest / Black Sea duo and Laura Naukkarinen (aka. Lau Nau). All my gratitude goes out to these people who have been an integral part in the birth of this double LP." - Sami S䮰䫫il䮀

"First off, Self Destruction is a house record. Perhaps more in spirit than in its realized form, but if that sounds like a joke, stop reading. New Yorks most amorphous five-necked entity (which includes Other Musics own Dan Hougland) have never been strangers to taking the longer, more undulating gravel road, as evidenced by the stretched out subterranean sermons on last years Ka album. On Self Destruction , Excepter crawl out of the cellar and into the warehouse. This is a house record. If Xenakis had made one. It is throbbing mental machine music that (much like the quintets live shows) appears to detour, but often climaxes with the religious fervor of a Wicker Man/Moodymann ritual.

"Like a group groped Helen Keller all too drugged out to protest, the New York City based EXCEPTER weaves a dangerous course through the orange cones of cortex caressing sound. Drawing from boom-box emitters as disparate as CHROME, COMUS, and that weird-ass Indian techno music you heard eating that Somoza. Frequently lumped in with bands in their zip code like GANG GANG DANCE, SIGHTINGS, and ANIMAL COLLECTIVE and the NO NECK BLUES BAND, they are actually much more of a confrontational question mark. Lots of floor crawling stage exclamations make the band more slippery than a greased watermelon. With a lineup jamming out unclear instrumention but perhaps including detritus of Casios, battery needin samplers, six string part catalogs and occasional percussion, they manage to craft a deeply and creepily eerie sound that includes sounds from all over the radio dial. One could easily relax to this record and have ones heart forget to stop beating. Two of the songs on the record, "Jrone (Two)" and "Jrone (Three)" are on the "KA" record, but in extremely mutilated formats due to reworkings to the point that they lie naked and throbbing like a gum wrapper in Gitmo Base." - Load.

"Even though it would be wrong not to consider these protest songs against the back porch policies of certain undisclosed and secure locations, we shouldnt let THEM come between us. EXCEPTER says, "Yeah, well play" ... freestyle, the crawl, the butterfly, the breast, the rest. "How long will you stay?" Just as expressions and intuitions reflect the oceans unleashed, there is no desert island, dig, just the big, bare teeth of EXCEPTER there, smiling beneath. "You forgot something?" To survive the coming weather, you are going to need to know a sailor, a captain, an engineer, a figurehead, as well as a pirate, so SHOW ... A continuous stream of music split into two sides. ŰḐerformed and mixed live to stereo. SS EXCEPTER:"Were only a world away." - Excepter. "For the second time in a row now, one of Brooklyns grandest experimental entourages have presented us with a sonic totem whose jaunty and bright packaging belie an almost certain palpable sense of unease. This new twelve-inch is entitled "Vacation", and here Excepter have perhaps crafted a treatise on nothing less than the uncomfortable aspects of having to leave oneshome. Or they may well have been channeling the soundtrack to a particularly bizarre road trip I once went on involving an Indian burial ground, a cross eyed woman Xeroxing chain letters at a supermarket, and an extremely sadistic alligator farm outside of Hot Springs, Arkansas where I witnessed a stuffed Fiji Merman. Unease indeed. But of course, like on any worthy and good vacation, once youve become used to new unsettling sensations like foot blisters and sunburn you realize how sublime the landscape is. And sublimity is what Excepter trades in spades. Side-one positions the moment where you have trouble getting your bearings, trouble putting your surroundings into perspective. The rhythms are all displaced, their center of gravity slackened by synths squiggling all willy-nilly looking for something to latch onto. Side-two, "Forget Me," is where everything comes into focus -- like a photograph that you can spend some time with to chart your inner progress. This track could be Excepters pop moment, their breezy road trip down the Autobahn (and here the Kraut reference is especially apt). Pistons fired, these beats are allowed to lope carefree into the coming summers new season of discontent. Ex-ceptional." - Michael Klausman; Other Music.

There is a sonic clarity to this new studio recording that might help elucidate the underlying musical structure on the two previous live Electric Conception recordings (available on PSF).

"In Chameleon Ballet I wanted to create a work of magic that simulates a dream atmosphere of post industrial landscapes, with the waking memory of a romantic alien encounter occurring in the dream. Dedicated to the mystery of night and the magic of dreams -- James Ferraro. Debut limited edition album by this new sci-fi synth project of James Ferraro of The Skaters et al, with 1980s minimal wave moves bisected by the kinda keyboard patterns you mightve found on an Edgar Froese solo album or post-Body Love Klaus Schulze then exploded with barbarous invocations, syruped-vocals and some black drone atmospherics. Or, as the cover art suggests, urban landscapes as visioned by showroom dummies illuminated under 3 am neon. Another killer. -- David Keenan.

Title: Multitopia
Format: LP
Label: Olde English Spelling Bee
Country: USA
Price: $12.25
"New album from James Ferraro of The Skaters/Lamborghini Crystal et al, the first run ever presented under his own name. Multitopia is our reality system, James writes in the liner notes. A post 9/11 reality technology in between the frames of data reception. A cross wire into new head and necessary evolution upon the impact of the towers. It feels like a major work from James, the first fully-conceived album to go beyond his initial brain-fried 1980s nightmare culture documentation, reconciling both dystopian and utopian mindsets in a vision of Pan as Multitopia. Body modification, the blurring of sexual persona (via cracked images of James on the back with a modified pair of breasts chilling next to an arcade game) and cyborg intelligences are all recurrent tropes in James work but here he explodes them all, with some of the most aggressively nuanced keyboard and drum work of his entire career, kicking off with a full kit sound that sits somewhere between industrial steel drums and chaos pads then building to an evocative peak that then dissolves into wave after wave of fluxing keyboard drone and oddly looped vocal fragments. The gravity of the music is truly omnivorous, devouring drone, punk, new wave, industrial and minimal synth modes and spitting them back out as intensely detailed black and white visions of the future now. James somehow manages to interweave vacuous TV announcements and cheap anchor man quips alongside the lucid, microtone rich keyboard work, situating the whole deal in a virtual, godless netherworld with each track a further descent into hell. It is both beautiful and horrifying. A major work from James - no one is doing anything remotely like him. Highly recommended. -- David Keenan. Remastered version of the CD-R release on New Age Discs. Limited edition of 425 copies. Color printed covers. Dedicated to Zac Davis." -Olde English Spelling Bee

Title: Trixie Stapleton 291
Format: LP
Label: Bichon
Country: France
Price: $13.25
1st time ever readily available on vinyl - the rarest entry on the legendary Nurse With Wound list (which is saying something). Ltd. ed. of 300. "Fille Qui Mousse ("Girl With Froth"??) is one the most mythical albums to be released(?) from France. Recorded in 1972, it was issued in 73 (evidently only as a test pressing in an edition of maybe 50) by the legendary Futura label. Often referred to as the French Faust, FQMs album mixed collage, psychedelic rock, surreal poetry, and organically tapped noise purity with the absolute best of experimental 70s rock-and-beyond. One of the essential reissues of the 70s rock underground." - Bichon. "Straight off, we plunge into that Faust structure...riffing with a psychedelic bent, hints of Gong too...we move into bizarrely constructed patterns of percussive sound and chopped-up rock music, and just as a musical focus takes shape it disappears. A poem, recited by a girl, over an urban landscape populated by numerous barking dogs then gives way to an intensely strange mangled web of sound thats almost brain numbing. And, yet more in the way of strangeness is a piano based piece that recalls some of Roger Doyles early experiments. The only actual song has the most bizarre lyrics (in English) and is followed by an excursion in distorted and processed guitar. Next is where the folk music comes in, but even with gypsy violin FQMs interpretation of folk is strange and twisted. Finally, we return to the psychedelic jamming that opened the album, but with a jazzier edge, ending the album perfectly." - Audion. Very highly recommended!

"In 1998, after attending close to every one of the Ensembles bimonthly concerts at the West Bank School of Music for well over a decade, Michael Mann decided the group was long overdue for the opportunity to once again present its work in a concert hall. (The school, you see, is actually an old house; the Ensemble presenting its work in the "living room".) So, he booked a hall on a local college campus for "Two Evenings of Improvised Music", wherein Milo Fine and Steve Gnitka, the nucleus of the Ensemble, collaborated with four of their most stalwart associates -- Scott Newell, John OBrien, Elliot Fine and Jason S. Shapiro -- in trio and quartet formats. He also made arrangements for the event to be recorded. Thus, this triple CD features the vast majority of the music played during those two evenings." - Shih Shih Wu Ai.

Discussions, hearing one anothers music and, ultimately, concerts ensued, the latter often involving Davus main partner Andrew Lafkas, among others. Milo also invited each of them to join the Ensemble at as part of the bimonthly concert series at the West Bank School of Music. As the School has neither the space to allow for a quartet with this instrumentation, nor, for that matter, a decent piano, this CD was recorded at Milos home in late 2003." - Shih Shih Wu Ai.

"Soaring like The Eagles on Robitussin, Flying Canyons mournful California folk-rock slowly ascends into the desert sky. Imagine the distant moan of a melted CSN&Y cassette floating up from a boombox deep in a ravine while crows pick at a corpse on the mesa. Existing in the sun-baked tradition of burnt-out Cosmic Californians like Sky Sunlight Saxon, Skip Spence, David Crosby and Phil Perlman, frontman Cayce Lindner is tapping a rich vein of indigenous folk, rock & country. Much like their forefathers, Flying Canyon are not traditionalists. With organ, fuzz bass, cathedral harmonies & cavernous drums, the band slows the pace to a funeral crawl.ŰѲ An apocalyptic and almost religious feeling emanates from this music, while Lindner, with quavering vocals of the Young/Garcia axis and a sensitive masculinity akin to Kristofferson, delivers his high desert eulogies; mournful tales of eternal love and despair. Backing Lindner in Flying Canyon are Shayde Sartin (Kelley Stoltz, The Skygreen Leopards, Giant Skyflower Band, etc) and Jewelled Antlers Glenn Donaldson (The Skygreen Leopards, Thuja, Giant Skyflower Band, The Franciscan Hobbies, etc). Donaldson recorded Flying Canyon on a crumbling reel-to-reel tape machine at his home in San Franciscos famed Mission District, mere blocks from where Sir Douglas Quintet recorded their classic Together After Five LP." - Soft Abuse.

Price: $7.00
"New Zealand sound artist Richard Francis (aka Eso Steel), is the third artist released on cmr and the first 3Űɰ CD from the label. Richard has been involved with experimental music since 1996 when he began his first solo excursions (combining tape looped instrumentation with field recordings) and played in a guitar improvisation group with Birchville Cat Motels Campbell Kneale, called Small Blue Torch. His sound making since then has explored different techniques of CD sampling and abstraction, with a focus on electroacoustic collection and abstraction/manipulation of field recordings from various natural and mechanical sound sources. He has released sound works on labels such as Last Visible Dog, USA; Drone Records, Germany; Stateart, Germany; Absurd, Greece, with numerous releases on his own labels 20city and CMR, and has toured extensively in Japan, New Zealand, and most recently the West Coast of the US. Three Tracks (co-released by CMR, New Zealand and Stateart, Germany) contains three compositions recorded mid to late 2001 in Japan (where Richard formally resided) and mixed in mid 2002 in New Zealand. Using contact and stereo microphones, field audio material was gathered from organic and mechanical sources, found in both interior and exterior locations in and around Tokyo. Richard uses the subtle elements of these recordings (quiet electrical hums and crackle, amplified ambient near silences, minute occurrences) and carefully abstracts and arranges them into texturally detailed, engaging compositions. Three Tracks sits nicely in Richards catalogue of audio manipulation, following a well received 7Űɰ (under his moniker Eso Steel) on Drone Records, and an LP on 20city." - 20 City.

Equally of disparate origins are the band members themselves, Chris was born in New Jersey and grew up with half-Indian Kirti in the South of France, although both were schooled in London. Despite such varied influences and backgrounds, Frank(just Frank) indeed proudly embrace the French pop musical tradition and present a freshly recontextualized version of the french cold wave sound, which might well be most appropriately called °ƌa Vague Froide Moderne in 2010.

But sure enough, he laid a riff down and I was like, Jesus christ, I cant believe you pulled something meaningful out of such a stupid line. Welcome to the push/pull dynamic thats fueled the Fresh & Onlys steady stream of releases over the past year, including last springs self-titled LP (Castle Face) and Grey-Eyed Girls (Woodsist). And to think it all started the old-fashioned way -- with Sartin and Cohen simply hanging out after work, playing their favorite punk (Buzzcocks, The Mekons) and classic rock (Country Joe and the Fish, cued up alongside slabs of psych from the groups homebase, San Francisco) records alongside a growing collection of empty beer cans. I cant really explain what happened or why, says Sartin. I guess we listened to records until we were on the same page, and from that point on, we never stopped recording. As simple as all of that sounds, the duo first bought a tape machine five years ago. When that failed to produce any concrete cuts, Cohen focused on his previous avant-pop band, Black Fiction, and Sartin split his time between session and live work for such bands as the Skygreen Leopards, Papercuts and Citay. Not to mention his close friend Kelley Stoltz, who ended up releasing the first Fresh & Onlys 7" (the limited Imaginary Friends EP) in early 2008. With so much music hitting shops in such a short time (Sartin says the band already has boxes of backlogged tapes), you might think the Fresh & Onlys camp have a problem with quality control. Quite the contrary; Sartin and Cohen are very careful about what they release. And while the duo writes and records the bands songs, the arrangements are usually fleshed out with guitarist Wymond Miles, drummer Kyle Gibson, and backup singer Heidi Alexander. If we take a song into the studio or a live setting and it doesnt have wings, says Sartin, Then we just ditch it and keep the charming demo version. The final mix of Grey-Eyed Girls sounds like a natural bridge between the raucous garage rock of the groups debut and the full-on studio record they plan on wrapping for In the Red later this year. That goes for the galloping grooves of Happy To Be Living, the shadowy post-punk of Invisible Forces, and the firework finale freak-outs that drive The Delusion of Man. Not to mention a stack of hook-slinging tracks that nix any shitgaze assumptions you may have. Were not trying to hide melodies or do the blown-out thing, says Sartin. A lot of those bands are great, but I dont want to ever cater to whats popular. Its not that Im being reactionary; were just trying to make recordings that are as rich and ear-friendly as possible. Its working." - Woodsist.

Title: Swiss Cheese Back
Format: 7"
Label: Destijl
Country: USA
Price: $3.75
"THE FUCKIN FLYIN A-HEADS were a band from Hawaii most commonly construed as "punk", tho they might provide one of the more exciting links between a more typified conception of "punk", and that of "noise". If the A-side of this hybrid genre is the final aggregate regimented elements of deconstructed hard core that Harry Pussy by way of Magic Band displayed, the flip is the excess of Experience inspired freedom and recklessly abandons anything that even vaguely resemble "form". Perhaps the most radically mixed recording, ever (to the extent that you might wonder if they just fucked up, or were working with a broken machine). A completely astounding spin. Their first review is a riot : from Damage Magazine, DEC 1980: White noise this pure must take lots of to work to perfect. Somewhere far away there is a 60s endless guitar solo, bass playing 2 notes, a cymbal being hit at a constant 2 / 4 beat, and a distorted voice talking. But mostly there is white noise, simultaneously complex and simple. Its quite disturbing when cranked up. I like to play this record and watch TV. It instantly gives a surreal sense to the most mundane images. Not recommended for anyone with high blood pressure. -- M.C. Parker" - Destijl. Some days this is possibly the greatest single ever.

Title: Blood of the Sunworm

"During a sabbatical from regular duties in THE SKYGREEN LEOPARDS, GLENN DONADLSON (never one to rest) dreamt of GIANT SKYFLOWER BAND, an exotic, flowery and crumbling new recording project with nods to fruity new age, psych, prog, folk, and pop songwriting. Donaldson quickly invited multi-instrumentalist SHAYDE SARTIN "smoke marijuana & make up strange pop songs," and thus the band was born. With Gongs seminal "Magick Brother" as a starting point and a sitar close at hand, the duo created a dark, peregrine pop transmission from their shoddy analog recording studio in San Francisco. The duos debut offering examines in detail the idiom of Bummer Psych; the strain of damaged Anglo-pop music pioneered by Syd Barrett that arguably reached its apex with The Television Personalities Painted Word LP in the mid-80s." - Soft Abuse.

"The ongoing study and execution of harsh noise by driven artists constantly reinstates the medium via different techniques, concepts, and different artist amalgamations for a collaborative work. For myself, working with the different warbling and generative moving lines of modular synth from Carlos Giffoni offered me a chance to investigate many different spaces of tone and line manipulation. The examination and crossing of the different LINES slowly become their own parallel entity as the adjoined and wavy synth lines are further dirtied, cut repeatedly, and joined with the knife of gated and cutting HN pedal work.To further manipulate and display the different lines and HN stylizations, Giffoni had the opportunity to heavily edit the textural work of THE RITA to exude the constantly moving and jutting sense of Giffonis own pulsing and driving synth decay via the dirtied analog source material of THE RITA. Modular synth and pedal work have been long standing tools in the world of harsh noise, but not often are they crossed over with such investigative and crackling tendencies – a virtual criss-crossing of the different technical lines. - Sam McKinlay(THE RITA) .

Spectra is an unsettling mind-meld: Spiers desolate soundscapes bleed into Miltons heavy drones, which are complemented perfectly by ORorkes restless percussion.

Over many many many many years the core remain the same with various collaborators and members walking in and stepping or falling out, but the core remain the same, as they stepped in and fell out of modes such as free improv, free funk, free song, as evidenced in these on record. And included on record is a highly-picked sample of highlights from Gordy line-ups, including involving Clayton "Chicken" Gunnels (RIP, of the JBs, "America Eats Its Young"-adelic), Mark Perry (Heevahava), C. Spencer Yeh (Burning Star Core) and names here. "So Mark Perry discovered Clayton wandering Covington streets. Clayton was too well-dressed to be just another homeless dude as Mark put it... Mark started a dialogue which turned into sporadic jams with Clayton, then Mark decided that Gordy Horn get-togethers were the best formats for Clayton and you know the rest... Do you know karate? Tara was a singer with a very sloppy and very loud noise jam thing in the early nineties that I liked a lot--in particular I liked this pretty quiet small young girl that would transform into a screaming banshee on stage... We talked and then they moved to LA; her boyfriend oded, she moved back, and we started talking again. Scott and I were in a collaborative mood. We met up with Aimee who was willing to bring her harp around, and Gordy was a four-piece for 8 months or so around June to Dec 1999... The quartet with Spencer and Adam was really the go-to quartet for a while there (2003-2006) and I am glad we got one of those jams on the record." - Tim Schwallie, Spring 2010, Cincinnati Ohio.

These tiny hints of accessibility are just enough to deepen the musics essential mysteriousness, to make us feel tantalizingly close to Harris before shes gone again, the echoes of her breathy coo humming in our ear." -Pitchfork.

The fusion of metal, noise rock, free jazz, industrial, and harsh electronics that makes up The Certainty of Swarms is the rare kind of heterogeneous concoction that is carefully matured, but never lost in pedestrian calculation. A blistering onslaught of metallic-fused noise-murk, Swarms is considered by the band to be one of their most complete statements to date, an aptly blindsiding and developed work drawing from all quarters of their craft." - No Fun

Country: USA
Price: $8.50
"Three albums in, Steven R. Smiths new Hala Strana project has delivered its first masterpiece. Following his first two full-lengths from last year (Hala Strana on Emperor Jones and Fielding on Jewelled Antler) comes These Villages, a further culmination of Smiths interest in Eastern European folk music. Smiths original compositions are peppered with interpretations of traditional songs, presenting the collision of his musical interests throughout his rather prolific career over the past decade. Built upon layers of sustained drone & delicately plucked and bowed strings, These Villages creates a seemless, almost raga-like environment, with quiet-loud dynamics aplenty. Its a dark record, a definite work of beauty, and a perfect soundtrack for autumns changing leaves and howling winds." - Soft Abuse.

Title: Year of Panic

Label: Captured Tracks

Price: $8.50
"With the obvious homage the name implies, youd expect Hanoi Janes to be a group of riot grrrl angnsty types, displaced in time by about 20 odd years. Having taken on the nickname given to Jane Fonda in the 70s because of her anti-war stance on Vietnam, these girls would be all bent up about, well you know, stuff. Youd expect that, but youd be wrong. It is in fact primarily the work of one guy from Sachen, Germany – Oliver Scharf. But then Hanoi Janes album, Year of Panic, is able to inspire all kinds of misconceptions. Name of the band aside, would you expect a German guy (whos a bit handy with an eight-track) to produce a series of beautifully lo-fi, sub two-minute, surf-pop tracks, full of buzzing guitar and bubblegum spirit. Maybe – maybe not. But thats just what Scharf has done. The sound is distinctly garage, reminiscent of a 70s surf sound, and like The 5. 6. 7. 8s, Hanoi Janes are able to launch into the genre with the luxury of being removed from the scene itself. Tracks like opener, The Boys Are Out and Beach Kids are unashamedly infectious, utilising catchy hooks, hand claps and the odd Ooo ooo ooo to great effect. The production is fuzzy, but that only adds to the overall charm of the album. Because charming is what it is, as Hanoi Janes have packed Year of Panic with some real gems. Summer of Panic offers something tinted with psychedelic sounds; Our Lives could have been an early track by The Strokes had they been influenced by the Californian sun rather than the New York shadows; Good Bone is a track which can only be performed if there are several oversized surf-boards nearby. Year of Panic is lo-fi, scuzzy garage surf-pop at its finest and it deserves to be the sound-track of your summer" -Bowlegs.

Title: An Indifferent Ocean
Format: 12.50
Label: Kraak
Country: Belgium
Price: $12.50
Limited to 500 copies. "Previously found prizing atom splitting feedback through a horizontal guitar, Bridget Haydens solo experiments have more lately sought the brooding, layered blues that we find resonating in “An Indifferent Ocean”. A stripped down set up, featuring an out of tune, hand me down guitar, two pedals of similar origin – no delays – and a donated fourtrack port-a-studio found on the street, has converged to form a crafted storm of abyss kicking improvisation. Best known for her involvement with the hypnotic, shambollic and critically acclaimed drone band Vibracathedral Orchestra, Hayden split in 2006, desiring change and a new vein to hone. She toured solo with kindred freaks such as The Aethr Method, Melanie Crowley-Delaney, Marcia Bassett and Sunburned Hand of the Man, later teaming up with The Telescopes henchman Stephen Lawrie to begin a noisy collaboration that continues to confuse and electrify. Here, in her first official and long awaited solo release, you will find a spectrum of somnambulist trances that seamlessly conjoin dense and frantic depth with delicate fracture. Relentless guitar shredding epics are interspersed with graceful, drifting melancholia that lull the listener back to shore with a warm, whispered dream after being crashed mercilessly against the rocks." - Kraak.

Its interesting to see how Kelley approaches the 1/4 speed lurch. In comparison with Olson and Wooley its a bit more fireworks oriented but there are plenty of glacial exhalation, abrasions and slow wallops to extend the gravenights vocab. Also where Wooley and Olson are fully complicit Kelley is a bit more argumentative--in the best way possible--in doling out his own formal demolitions that end up with almost downtown moments of cross-pollination and genre car crashes." - Brokenresearch

Title: Fountain of Annihilation
Format: LP
Label: Bobby J
Country: USA

"This is a very harrowing, very out record. The title track covers all of side one, and it is a heaving, heavily-effected monolith of sound, which as the needle draws closer to the inherent black hole of the record, seems to pulverize all the sounds and grooves and then shoot them back out at you as tiny sonic shrapnel. Side two is broken up into more readily digestible pieces, an d showcases Ms. Hellers ability to coax sounds out of clarinet, guitar, theremin, keyboard, castanets, and tapes, all to varying degrees of effect. A track like Vestigial Digit features some low-in-the-mix guitar laid under a wigged and sinister keyboard quiver. Phosphene Damage on a Primal Wave harkens back to the tapestry of side one. The tape insects of the last piece let you down and show you the door back out to the silence." - Luna Kafe.

"December 2009: Inspiration dependently arising; Blows Against The Empire in one hand, Admiral Richard Byrds secret diary in the other. Days after returning to Maine after three heavy months on the road, Matthew Lajoie (Cursillistas) awoke one morning having dreamt the existence of a lost 1973 private press concept record about the exploration of inner Earth and the advanced civilization thriving at its center. Agartha; Shambhala: the domain of the Arianni. Using Byrds account as the thematic framework for the album, he feverishly poured forth a representation of the dreamt record, writing and recording the entire LP in a single 24-hour period - guided by sonic Ouija. The result is a cosmic antenna with dials tuned to the Planet Earth Rock & Roll Orchestra, obscure psych-prog spacecasts, and classic rock radio, all refracted through the dusty, cracked and scratched Cursillistas prism. Performed entirely on a borrowed thrift store electric guitar and broken microphone, Herbcraft Discovers The Bitter Water Of Agartha was birthed in the Now to scatter the seeds of Agarthas message in our Aquarian Dark Age." - Hello Sunshine.

Hirvonen is best-known under his Uton monicker with two LPs on Dekorder and a stream of releases on Last Visible Dog, Digitalis, Ruralfauna, Jewelled Antler, Pseudo Arcana and his own Ikuisuus label. While most one-off meetings between so-called experimental and improvising musicians often sound like bad excuses for a few beers and endless jams this is quite the opposite - a heavy weight championship finale of two like-minded whizkids cross-fertilizing each other with idea after idea, leading to some of the weirdest and quixotic recordings you will have heard of the two. Everything you loved about Kemialliset Yst䶤t, Uton and Tomutonttu is contained in Hevoset.....and more. Rural psychedelia, out-of-tune plucked and strummed strings, overloaded organs and effect pedals, Jani Hirvonens sweet wordless vocals, ecstatic improvised drone collages, bells, backward loops, jungle percussion and tons of unidentifiable sounds and noises shaped into tight 4 - 6 minute tracks." - Dekorder.

"Heres the music that weve all been waiting for. Its called �??Out of Phase�?� and its first full-length album from NJs HOME BLITZ.

Some egos may have been bruised, but the slugfest was worth the coup in welcoming this high-profile act to the RR//TT roster. �??Out of Phase�?� forges a blazing 13 track romp through hard rock, power-pop, and even oi territories, and its got some of the crispest licks since Meat Puppets II (or Priests Defenders of the Faith). HOME BLITZ broke out a few years ago as the recording project of Daniel DiMaggio, an under-aged jock on Princetons WPRB known for compiling playlists of deep depth and wide breadth. Early singles showed flippant naﶩete and early live shows (with a somewhat stable backing band), were marked by purposeful self-implosion.

Artist: HOTOTOGISU & BURNING STAR CORE
Title: S/T
Format: LP
Label: Yik Yak
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"Hototogisu – the duo of UK experimentalist Matthew Bower (Skullflower/Sunroof et al) and New York-based-guitarist Marcia Bassett (Double Leopards/Zaimph/GHQ) – are all about impact, about taking the physical aspect of sound and hallucinating it to the point of abstraction, so much so that for all of the complexity of their music it often sounds like its standing still, simply hanging in the air and vibrating without anything approaching a plot to bring it to a point. By contrast, Burning Star Core, the trio of drummer Trevor Tremaine, Robert Beatty on electronics (both of whom also play in Hair Police alongside Mike Connelly of Wolf Eyes) and C.Spencer Yeh on violin and electronics, are more overtly propulsive, usurping classic rock form via electronics and drums but still focused on momentum, on the jam as a form of structural gravity, on the unfolding of action via development over time. This all-improvised studio meeting is the perfect reconciliation of both tendencies, of Hototogisus obsessive layering of strata after strata of violently conceived noise and of Burning Star Cores epic, post-Kraut thunder-punk style. Bower has long been on record about his opposition to anything approaching dialogue in improvised music, favouring a senses-devouring simultaneity over anything that might pass for actual exchange, so its no surprise that there is little on this new record that sounds even close to conventionally improvised music. Instead, it feels more focused towards the zone where energy begins to spontaneously birth form, where the monomaniacal pursuit of the nowhere zone bears fruit in the shape of a music that transcends its constituent parts while being totally based around – and rooted in - the individual response to the moment. BXC play it ginchy and garage-pop right from the start, simultaneously inverting and amplifying Bower and Bassetts vertical constructs with drums that sound like they might have been lifted straight from the most flower-power parts of the Silver Apples back catalogue and bass patterns that are as tactile and rock-anchored as Cans Holger Czukay. To hear Hototogisus music given this kind of injection of dynamic energy makes them seem more obviously sourced in classic rock music than you might otherwise have guessed, with a dense, implosive sound that feels like a hyper-distilled take on all of rocks most outlaw aspects, the feedback that makes you feel like you could explode in a ball of electricity, the anti-gravity effect of heavy fuzz, the seductive, alien tongues. Its certainly the most garage band side that either of the groups have cut to date, albeit in the form of a Gnostic, post-acid re-think where the vibration is more important than the outer forms, where energized enthusiasm makes for a more fundamental guiding principle than verse/chorus/verse and where the only direction left is out. Which is another way of saying it feels genuinely bad-ass. In an era where even the best groups seem polite, pro, participatory, democratic, this is music that is disregarding in its overwhelming power, exhilarating in it irresponsible spontaneity. And in an underground scene where self-conscious notions of avant-garde and free improvisation have long displaced any concept of an intuitive rocks off-style, well, it feels like a re-connection to the source. So file this one closer to Kill City or Sticky Fingers than Persian Surgery Dervishes or The Black Album and feel the gravity of your whole record collection shift." - David Keenan, Glasgow, November 2008.

Artist: HOTOTOGISU & BURNING STAR CORE
Title: Volume 1
Format: CD
Label: Dronedisco
Country: USA
Price: $8.75
"Live in-person" collaborations between Hototogisu and the BxC. Hototogisu, as you know, are the time-defying duo of Matthew Bower (Skullflower, Ramleh, Sunroof!, Total, etc.) and Marcia Bassett (Double Leopards, GHQ, Zaimph, etc.). For these sessions, Burning Star Core was C. Spencer Yeh, Robert Beatty, and Trevor Tremaine (the latter two being of Hair Police, Eyes and Arms of Smoke, Sick Hour, etc.). Note that the music on this disc is different material from the Heavy Blossom companion volume "HG/BxC II" released earlier this year. Five tracks, totalling approximately fifty minutes. Packed into the small Horrible Room (RIP) inside the Cedar House (RIP) down in Lexington KY (still alive), individuals huddled in every corner, painting the room in colored cables, glossy wood and metal boxes. Deafness and disorientation was administered through the afternoon on into the night. Summoning over two hours of recorded tape, it was decided to cut the baby in half for adoption between two imprints. Heavy Blossom ferried away the long thick sides of torso, and Dronedisco seized the hooves, antlers, and jaw. The disc starts off with an appropriate invocation; from there punches blindly through one stone cloud after another, coughs and gasps from exhaustion, stumbles and lies motionless. The ritual concludes with a moment of naked acoustic/instinctual spasm, then a cut-off. Originally released in a very small quantity on CD-R as merchandise during various US and UK spring tours, the Dronedisco half of these sessions has been edited and resequenced for this release in the autumn. The pro-pressed disc comes in a black polycase with black and white inserts and a special randomly-selected 1" button (there are five button variations in all)." - Dronedisco.

"Hurray is Zak Prekop, Josh Brand, Pete Mandradjieff & Rich Aldrich. They hail from the hidden sectors of New York City, and have released one 7" on the skul record label and recently presented their first art show at the Nicole Klagsbrun Gallery also of New York City. This is their first full length recording and is a must for fans of ambiguous, anomalous, and unobtrusive sound creation whose mystery is not invoked by hyperbole, pseudo-mythology or fake histories, but by giving full allowance to otherness and seeking beauty by allowing it to happen, which often means allowing it not to happen. Mishandled guitars, unknown electronics, amplified percussives and various layers of buzz coagulate and dissipate in measured restraint. I hesitate to use blighted terms like "lowercase" music, as Hurray shys not from some harsher territories and melodic (if emaciated and ghostly) material sometimes drifts into consciousness; two things I think of as contrasting w/ the more didactic, "European" music associated w/ said term. So, Ill avoid terminology and just say Im very glad to know this record." - Greg Kelley, 12/27/05.

"-Hands- is the first release from ecstatic slow-jazz sensation hurray. Hurray is Zak Prekop, Pete Mandradjieff & Rich Aldrich It was recorded in Chinatown in 2002 & 2003 with Mitch Rackin. The instrumentation is electric piano, guitar and drums. Hurray was once described as "jazz by nervous and distracted children". In both songs the piano acts as the structural background upon which the guitar reacts. Sometimes the guitar plays counter melodies and sometimes it is just bleeping and creaking away. The drums come in here and there to accent and add direction. On the second side, at the end, all three parts finally coalesce into a minor finale. -Hands- was done in an edition of 300, each cover is hand made and the records are white vinyl." - Skul.

Title: I Am My Own Worst Enemy
Format: LP
Label: Modern Claire
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"I Am My Own Worst Enemy is Brooklyn band Hurrays third LP following Dreams Not Soft Illusion (Fusetron) and Treasure Chest (Galleria Paolo Bonzano.) This one divides two kinds of music across its two sides of vinyl. Side one exhibits the band patiently spending time with their instruments, playing them a bit, or not. The result is a field of fragile rhythms and unidentified sounds, suggestions and tests. Density, volume and pace escalate and dissappear to tell the musics story. Side two begins with a concise variation on where side one left off, with the addition of a loop and a submerged metal vocal. IAMOWE continues however, with a series of considerations of pop-song structure. Melodic hesitation in the first few of these improvisations gives way to something like confidence as the band learns to play standing up. Hurray is Richard Aldrich, Josh Brand, Peter Mandradjieff and Zak Prekop." - Modern Claire. "Hurrays music accumulates power through carefully timed restraint." (The Wire, reviewing Dreams Not Soft Illusion) "Hurray [is] an ensemble devoted to various terminal branches of sonic architecture. . .what [Treasure Chest] actually sounds like is a few guys up in a treehouse, throwing sticks and stones at some guys with guitars who are trying to climb their special ladder." (Bull Tongue in Arthur Magazine).

Price: $8.50
"LIVE CHAMPION show the first Hurray live performance. As one side of a record, it is fifteen minutes. Recorded w/ a video camera in 2002 or 03, it was played to accompany two dancers. Chronologically, it follows the bands first 7-inch -- Hands -- and predates their first full-length LP Dream, Not Soft Illusion. The sound falls closest to Treasure Chest, the bands 2004 LP of home and practice space recordings. Less than noise, it is skittering and intimate, like a rocking-chair attached to instruments. Four people play in and out of primitive rhythms, some melodies, and changes of time. The video recording dissolves before the end, but a listener can still sense the whole of the song. An early time in the band, it was one of their happiest live performances. Hurray continue to exist and will soon release a double LP of out-takes from their first studio LP (DNSI) alongside a new song long-player." - Hurray. Edition of 100 copies.

Label: Galerie Paolo Bonzano
Country: Italy

"recorded between 2002 and 2005, if "hurray hands" is the jazz album, and "dreams not soft illusion" the minimal concrete album, then this would be the noisey folk album. released in italy by galerie paolo bonzano & produced by cecilia canziani. "I think both possible cover images have good internal puzzles. The stick drawing looks like a person trying to imagine or remember or depict nature from their desk -- some model of nature that uses bits of stuff from actual nature to make a map of some second faulty nature, or the thought of it. So you could say this is a parallel to when we have these things (instruments, amps, band) to make music and instead make silence, or models of nature, or imitations of sparse conversation. And the microphone stand looks like a modest flag or attempt at formal communication, but in a domestic setting instead of public, so it wont quite come across, and who can see what it was supposed to stand for. . . Like making records for any public out of these things that are essentially private, obscure documents." -hurray

"On their debut album Public Sector, Hygiene take the listener on a post-pub stagger through the concrete walkways and underpasses of Britains decline. Daydreaming at their offices on a weekday or at home with their record collection on a Saturday night, the members of Hygiene are dislocated in both time and space. Their LP has one DM boot in the past and the other longwing brogue firmly up the backside of the present. Public Sector hearkens back to a time of Polytechnic radicalism, Special Patrol Group repression and O Level temptresses yet evades the pitfalls of vapid historicity and pastiche. Hygiene see historical continuities and follow them to their logical conclusions, reducing their influences down to their essential constituent elements and reassembling them into now music for now people. Flouting Rockist conventions with equal doses of stark minimalism and plodding fury, these post-punks resolutely refuse the "post" prefix." - La Vida Es Un Mus.

He even sings and talks more and creates his own musical world around it. In the meantime he has become musical partners with Paul Labreque (Sunburned Hand of the Man) and Silverster Anfgang (Belgium), but still proves that his solo work towers above his other collaborations.

Title: III
Format: LP
Label: Kraak
Country: Belgium
Price: $12.50
"George Herriman created Ignatz in 1910. It was a vicious mouse in the comic Krazy Kat. Ignatz favourite occupation was throwing bricks at Krazy Kats head, who thought it was a love declaration from the mouse. The Brussels based artist Bram Devens uses Ignatz as his alter-ego for his own pile of bricks. Acoustic songs wrapped with effects and driven by improvisation and spontaneousness. III projects the atmosphere of Jack London and The Iditarod Trail Sled Dog onto a modern world ruled by technology. Devens brings us the most genuine melancholy contemporary pop music has seen since quite some time. This album leaves the underground scenery that is troubled by trends so often far behind and just shows us the pure essence of what Music has to be: raw emotions put to sound. With his third full album Bram Devens has once again amazed us with a masterpiece. In his usual brain-melting retro-futuristic blues folk, he summons the devilish spirits of Bukka White, Robert Pete Williams and Sleepy John Estes as seen through the eyes of an adolescent Lou Reed. III tells a fictive and blurred story about the death of music genres. Tragedies built upon screeching, atonal and repetitive melodies. Smelling like a wet dog or a badly dried towel. III breathes a much more sentimental atmosphere compared to Devens?? previous work because of his grousing voice, that is not unlike Skip James??s. After the closing track ??Dead By noon?, the tormented soul frees the listener from a heavy personal trip and leaves him dazzled. III projects the atmosphere of Jack London and The Iditarod Trail Sled Dog onto a modern world ruled by technology. Devens brings us the most genuine melancholy contemporary pop music has seen since quite some time.

Title: See-Saw
Format: LP
Label: All Hands Electric
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"Incorporating elements of blues, country, punk and pop, and with an emphasis on traditional songs, SEE-SAW falls into what Gram Parsons had called “cosmic American music”. Accordingly, it lies somewhere between the country-soul of Big Star and the punk spirit of The Wipers. Recorded in a basement on an 8 track reel to reel, and later mixed at Seaside Lounge in Brooklyn, its anthemic yet warmly modest. The drums, though straightforward and minimal, are a solid rallying cry. The bass is both warm and soulful. The guitars are twisted American hybrids, shifting from a bluesy jangle to a dark sound-fix, like Chuck Berry or Tom Verlaine playing to the sound of a jet crashing, or the springs of a clock snapping apart. The piano and organ add cool melodic counterpoints, bringing calm to chaos. The lyrics are spun out of rich phrases, crowded with protagonists that rise and fall on opposite ends of the great fulcrum of luck. Zachary Cales vocal delivery is wrenching, both crooner-like and raw. The end result is an enigmatic album that is both familiar and foreign; one that wears the suit of American rock & roll, but broadcasts anthems from another universe." - All Hands Electric.

"Intense Molecular Activity worked diligently in the background during the zenith of New York Citys visceral post punk and no wave movements. Recording as a duo, Don Hunerberg and Andy Blinx pain-stakingly wove together their own textured songs and soundscapes from 1979 to 1982. No outsiders to the scene, Hunerberg was a recording engineer at the legendary Radio City Music Hall Recording Studio working with Sonic Youth, the Ramones, Blondie, John Cale, Richard Hell and many others. Blinx was a drummer who also pioneered LED fashion accessories for Patricia Field, Maripol, Grace Jones, Bill Aucoin plus more. While bearing some comparisons to the likes of Suicide, Devo and Gary Numan, IMA looked beyond minimal synth/post punk stylistic trappings and “hosed them down in wetly psychoactive sense deranging treatments” (MUTANTS SOUNDS Blog). IMA left behind only one EP, 4 tracks, on Flexi-Disc in 1980 that was independently produced and then distributed worldwide by 99 Records. The recording has since become a rare and hidden gem for die-hard record collectors around the world.

Legendary Japanese noise masters Incapacitants and Pain Jerk performed for the first time ever in the US at No Fun Fest 2007, this CD include crystal clear board recordings of their sets, mastered for full audio brutality. If you havent had the pleasure of experiencing either of this acts live this is your chance, if you have then this is also your chance to re-experience two of the most amazing live performers of our time. Liner notes by Carlos Giffoni and Chris Goudreau (Sickness). Incapacitants began in 1981 as Toshiji Mikawas solo project in Osaka, where Mikawa collaborated with Yamatsuka Eye and others. Later, in Tokyo, Fumio Kosakai became a member, to form the current duo. From the beginning, while the attempt to achieve pure NOISE has been the most important aspect of their sound, they have also been famous for their stage performances, which are so wild they may remind people of pro wrestling matches. This aggressive, energetic style and the beauty of their NOISE are unrivaled. Along with Hijo Kaidan, Merzbow, C.C.C.C., and Solmania, Incapacitants is one of the most well known of the NOISE bands which started out in the early 80s. Because of the members other work (Mikawa is a bank employee, and Kosakai works in a government office) they have rarely toured inside or outside Japan. Pain Jerk is a noise music unit run by Japanese musician Kohei Gomi. Pain Jerk was one of the more prolific and influential noise artists of the 1990s, and is one of the leading figures in the "dynamic" style of Japanese noise, alongside acts such as Merzbow and Kazumoto Endo." -No Fun.

"Kyle Parker is Infinite Body. Like most of Southern Californias harsh noise youth crew (Impregnable, Privy Seals, Pedestrian Deposit), IB is the polar opposite of Kyles former project, Gator Surprise. There is something about the shift from creating unrelenting, harsh noise to ambient dreamlike drones that works perfectly; flowing with dedication and intensity from similar veins. Infinite Bodys debut cd "White Hymn" was a masterpiece of blurred lights, colorful, but heavy synthesizer and vocoder pieces. "A Series of False Awakenings", his follow up to that CD from the winter, shows a seasonal change, with a heavy presence on field recordings: children in parks, chimes, and the spring ambience of light winds and birds songs. An elevated sense of reality: entirely surreal. Kyles thoughtful and sincere work is certainly some of the most well executed around and the upcoming Infinite Body/Emaciator split LP on Monorail Trespassing will only further solidify this.

Equally influenced by John Carpenter and the Taj Mahal Travelers, they create traveling music; music that has the power to transport and overwhelm the listener with vibes outside of those presently available to them. The A Side consists of two tracks, both clouded in a heavy haze of fog, dark and heavy though their clarity exists underneath the shroud. The B Sides lone track "Skull Theft" is the full circle realization of the first two tracks: a light is illuminated and the fog begins to clear. Mastered by Keith Fullerton Whitman." -Arbor.

Insayngel is Calder, Caitlin, Richard, and John. Calder and Caitlin are Vizusa and used to jam Excepter, and Richard and John are the brutal rhythm unit of Sightings. An intriguing combination of players to say the least, this LP brings a 30th Century sound to the history of New York City. The locked, wrecked rhythms, desparate, gorgeous wails, and shredded, anxious guitars are symphonic, undulating, impossible.

For the Race side we get one ominous heavenly droning swelling tone which is given the extreme reverb treatment until it sounds like a white washed blissed out radiant hum. The artwork was designed by Robert and is a must see. One sheet of lines with a transparency of lines. but when one is placed over the othere, you start to see a hidden image.

Whats down there? Fight the rotten faith so itll wither until it hardly exists, believe it! Islaja shows the way of rhythm, no it isnt a straight one, the way of chant, it cant be foreseen. Textures evolve into new ones. Scabby rhythms spin socks on feet, skin burns into ashes in the attacking heat. Senile wine glasses wail of happiness. Fallen off beard hair are woven into a scarf that lets the wind blow fast right through it. If only life would be like this more than just an hour at a time! After everything the sun blesses the way with Islajas words, it spits out of its system the wet and transformed listener, who longs for the light again. Islajas second album was born in two different places that have been sewed up one to another with the binds of words and a rich sound world. Here and there, Islajas friends have lent their voices for this world. Loose guitar paths, long strokes of wind instruments, glasses and toys that clink, rattle and tinkle, rhythms, keyboards and Islajas wonderful, many-faceted voice are cooing in a miraculous net. The album is a spontaneous texture of muscle, cartilage and liquid, everything organized in such a surprising way that one cant believe right away that its a human being, but soon enough it becomes clear that its a most ingenious creature. It evolves by itself. It tells us how everything metamorphoses, it relies on itself and infuses belief into the listener that one can change the world. The secret place where the creature invites the listener is revealed to be our real world, it lives here with us." - Lau Naukkarinen.

Artist: JANE
Title: Coconuts
Format: CD
Label: Psych-o-Path
Country: USA
Price: $8.75
"Coconuts" is a second official release by Jane, the duo made up of Noah Lennox (aka Panda Bear of Animal Collective) and DJ Scott Mou (aka Queens). "Berserker", the preceding Jane release, was put out by Paw Tracks in the spring of 2005. Recorded in 2002, "Coconuts" introduces the sound of the duos early days Űɲ the title track was made during Janes first meeting. It was originally self-released as a limited edition CD-R. Psych o Path is proud to see this work through its first official release. A musical union that spawned from a mutual love of dance music has evolved into a sonic manifestation of a collective unconscious, one that eludes all conventional perceptions regarding what can be accomplished compositionally through the use of a turntable, mixer, keyboard and effects. Lennox and Mou relish in the freedom of home recording, calling upon the cooperation of the viscera and cerebrum in the listener, with two psychedelic jams. Through repetition and transcendence, these pieces form an erratic tide, straddling cohesion and sprawling, intently refusing to choose between the two. On "Coconuts," Mou and Lennox serve to challenge preconceived notions involving the constituents of psychedelic music. The overwhelming presence of sweat-drenched stringed instrumentation is noticeably absent. In its place is percussion that is both pulsating and skeletal (achieved through Mous masterful manipulation of the turntable), awash with keyboards and effects, joined by Lennoxs mournful, amorphous vocals. The link between these musical mediums and the realm of psychedelia is indulgence. The abscesses of the Id are gracefully confronted and pondered. The ego, and its desire for instant gratification, has been swept up in this ocean of sound. Trusting is with its weight, it chooses not to swim against the tide, but float with it, and allow itself to be carried where this acoustic sea considers fit. This edition of "Coconuts" stays true to the artwork found in the original release. The CD is packaged in a square 7" hand-pressed by Jon "Jonas" Asher, of a beautiful drawing by Mou. Rusty Santos of UUAR (whose past projects include Animal Collective) and Edik Kleyner of Jesus with Me were responsible for the re-mastering." - Psych-o-Path.

His techniques range from the construction of original instrument devices and the capturing of acoustic phenomenon through environmental field recordings to digital multi-tracking and manipulation. intimations is the first solo release from jgrzinich. intimations began as a series of piano recording experiments in the spring of 2001 in Austin, Texas and continued as a sonic diary of life in transit throughout Europe. The resulting CD came from a culmination of experiences, continually worked through as dynamic and personal electro-acoustic reflections. intimations is comprised of recordings from Texas, Croatia, Italy and Germany and was composed at numerous locations from the Balkans to the Baltics. The CD includes an extended essay by the composer. "These are intimations of a different kind; as if listening was no longer about finding references in a mediated culture but is about sensing the coordinates of ones position through a set of precise signals present in the environment."

Country: USA
Price: $6.00
"Fresh out of high school in 1981, future Rhode Island comedian Joe Hebert rounded up the rhythm section of Providence artwavers the Tits and laid down a messy, fuzz-laden attack on Izods and boat shoes. But nearly 30 years later, punk collectors find little humor in their pursuit of the elusive "I Dont Wanna Be A Preppy" single. Its initial small pressing size (200-300 copies) and abysmal survival rate (the number of known discs can be counted on two hands) made the Joe Hebert Band 45 ripe for an official reissue. Turn up that collar -- and the stereo too, Brock!" - Last Laugh. Highly Recommended!

Artist: K-GROUP/OMIT
Title: Storage
Format: LP
Label: Fusetron
Country: USA
Price: $8.50
"Not a split release by these two New Zealand artists, but a collaboration, carrying on from their 1997 single on Colorful Clouds for Acoustics. The weapons of choice are analogue synthesizers and the approach is slowly unfolding drones and drifting veils of sound that part and close across the listeners third ear like storms on the surface of Jupiter. K-Group is Paul Toohey, previously of noted NZ geological drone ensemble Surface of the Earth, who also has a solo album under this name on Corpus Hermeticum. Omit is Clinton Williams, who has also recorded for that notorious NZ un-easy listening label, as well as extensively on his own Deep Skin imprint. During 2000 and 2001, having failed to bring down the global economy with their now-forgotten Y2K scam [remember Y2K? - I thought not], this pair of Hidden Masters turned their efforts towards late-night kitchen jam sessions during their holiday moments. In these each would fire up an antiquated analogue synth and the resulting aural collisions would be recorded on a handy hard drive, then tweaked, inverted, eqd and edited to produce the immaculate slabs of sound contained within the tiny grooves of this ludicrously out-dated analogue sound-reproducing format. These seven tracks simulate the calm of the newly sedated patient about to undergo a surgical procedure, just as he or she is starting to slip into unconsciousness. You can listen, but just when you think youre hearing something, you realise that 12 hours have gone by and you have a new and inexplicable scar on some unlikely part of your anatomy. Too late you realise that the sound you can hear at the very edge of audition is not this recording, but the sound of forty metal robotic insects starting to eat their way out through your still-sedated navel. Waking with a start in time to flip the album over on your turntable, you notice that subsonic frequencies have begun to rearrange the contents of your mantlepiece into a veritable Morris Dance of inanimate objects, when you thought the audio had not yet begun to play back. A vestigial bass throb starts up in the back of your cranium, as very slow-moving if not actually stationary spacecraft begin to land in the garden. Three days later they are still hovering as the seventh and final track of thr album begins to play, and infinitesimally subtle stereo effects start panning in impossible permutations audible only between your shoulder blades. Apparent suspension of time, delirious interludes, interference with the basic laws of physics, all of these effects are possible results of listening to the beautifully poised, finely polished and unutterably beautiful sounds contained in this simultaneously forbidding and inviting artifact. If, like me, these are all the things you look for in a sound recording, then look no further. If its merely music you require, then I suggest you meddle not in the affairs of your betters and proceed directly to the nearest chain CD store and stock up big time." -Bruce Russell [Noise Legend], Lyttelton, NZ, May 2002. "Both K-Group and Omit have been longtime Aquarius favorites from the New Zealand experimental noise scene; but unfortunately, theyve been pretty quiet in their respective outputs during the past couple of years. K-Group is the solo project for Paul Toohey, who has also worked in the (defunct?) Surface Of The Earth, both of which centered around low-frequency tectonic drones coaxed from abused amplifiers. Clinton Williams has taken up the Omit moniker for his creepy, tape loop compositions loaded with bleak sci-fi / psychotic imagery. This collaboration between Williams and Toohey is actually their second, if you count a 7" which came out ages ago. In running Williams battery of analogue synths through Tooheys cabinets, theyve constructed an eerie album of deep rumblings that are on par with anything that Coleclough, Koner, or Troum have managed to release. As the K-Group / Omit drones ripple with a gritty amplifier buzz often lacking in the driftwork of those aforementioned artists, "Storage" pulses with a subterrenean heaviness, pushing this closer towards the Earth / Sunn 0))) terrain. A really wonderful album!!! " - Aquarius.

"Recorded in the industrial city of Nagoya, Japan, Tsurumai is an expansive album of rough electro-acoustic music. Starting from a few small clicks, the music steadily grows outward, uneasily shifting and expanding. Rude bumps interrupt narcotic drones, the telltale human hands of improvisation disappear into a mysterious group sound, acoustic and digital elements blur, vision fails, and time stops...Frans de Waard began his Kapotte Muziek (literally broken music) project in Nijmegen, the Netherlands, in 1984, and went on to found the Korm Plastics label. In Nagoya, KM met up with Kuwyama Kiyoharu, aka Lethe, an omnivorous multi-instrumentalist whose work typically takes advantage of some acoustic peculiarity of the space in which it is recorded." - Intransitive.

Title: How To Make A Happening
Format: CD
Label: Primary Information
Country: USA
Price: $13.25
"The point is to make something new, something that doesnt even remotely remind you of culture. Primary Information is pleased to announce the CD release of Allan Kaprows How to Make a Happening LP—making it available on a wide scale basis for the first time in the titles history. Originally released by Mass Art in 1966, the record never saw thorough distribution as the publisher went bankrupt shortly after its release. Later, in 1968, How to Make a Happening was distributed on a limited basis through Something Else Press—A laminated and silk-screened cover by Alison Knowles distinguished this edition from its predecessor. Simple in construction, yet profound in context, How to Make a Happening is Allan Kaprow delivering 11 rules on how, and how not, to make a Happening, an movement begun by Kaprow in the late fifties that is known for its unpredictability, open scores, and constantly-evolving form. On the first track, Kaprow speaks plainly into a microphone, delivering a private cut-to-the-chase style instruction on Happenings that is both informative and contradictory. Kaprow, known as a great teacher of the avant-garde (from Rutgers to Cal Arts to finally University of California, San Diego), delivers both a practical and theoretical how-to with an oftentimes dead-pan humor. On the second track, which is constructed like the first, Kaprow reads the program and notes of three recent Happenings (Soap, Calling, and Raining), which serve as loose instruction, as they involve improvisation and forces beyond human control, such as acts of nature and other uncontrolled environmental forces. These elucidations further provide a clear, if somewhat circumstantial, distinction of what does and does not constitute a Happening. Perhaps, one of the more astonishing values to this recording is that it reflects and informs on a movement that fifty years on has come be seen as a seminal shift in postwar contemporary art and performance, yet is discussed by its founder without this hindsight—it lacks sentimentality and most of all it lacks a sense of its relevance within this history. In fact, Kaprow shrugs off its place in the arts—its rejections of their strategies become a starting point if not a hallmark of the Happening, as he claims in rule number one: Forget all the standard art forms—dont paint pictures, dont make poetry, dont build architecture, dont arrange dances, dont write plays, dont compose music, dont make movies, and above all dont think youll get a happening by putting all these together. How to Make a Happening is being re-issued with the cooperation of the Estate of Allan Kaprow and the Getty Research Institute. Each CD is packaged in a hand-silkscreened jewel case that replicates the laminated edition by Alison Knowles and Something Else Press while preserving the original artwork carried out by Mass Art." - Primary Information.

Title: The Hermit
Format: LP
Label: HP Cycle
Country: Canada
Price: $12.00
"Debut album from this massive free ensemble from Louisville which features a revolving cast of over 50 musicians including members of Sapat, Valley of Ashes, Virgin Eye Blood Brothers, Son of Earth, Taiwan Death and the Belgian Waffles. The Hermit consists of three extended pieces that offer spaciously abstract atmospheres as well as moments of righteous cacophony. Utilizing a multitude of brass, reeds and percussion the album careens through numerous passages where intricate harmonics are created from the densely layered sounds. When the full force of the ensemble is unleashed individual elements appear and quickly recede into the squall. As the music nearly becomes unhinged, the sound disintegrates into a godzilla-like rockist thud propelled by the rhythm section and soaring horns before drifting to a sparse conclusion. The LP comes in a full colour jacket with homespun artifacts gracing the cover." - HP Cycle.

"SoftSpot has delved back into the post-punk archives and unearthed another virtually unheard gem. Our first full-length LP features the recordings of Kebab, a short-lived quartet of punk-minded Belgian youths. Inspired by the Crass Records DIY mentality, the burgeoning UK art-punk scene, and their own boredom, Kebab combined anti-political punk diatribes with sharp guitars, plodding basslines, synth gurgles, and spastic electronic percussion. The result is an aggressively sparse take on post-punk that remains fresh and visceral sounding today. Side A compiles all their known studio recordings, including the sought-after "Life Its a Joke" 7" from 1982. Side B features select tracks from their original demo tape, recorded in 1981 and limited to only 30 copies. All tracks have been remastered from the best available sources, and are presented on black vinyl in a full-size poster package containing lyric sheet, rare photos, and a vintage interview with the band." - Softspot.

Title: I Dont Want To Live Forever
Format: CD
Label: Little Enjoyer
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"As a veteran of the Massachusetts experimental music community and Minister of Fanfares for the Kingdom of Elgaland-Vargaland, Greg Kelley is well known in his capacity as a trumpeter, with consideration to his input into such diverse ensembles as nmperign, The BSC, Heathen Shame, Cold Bleak Heat, and Damon & Naomi. Kelleys interests, however, span all varieties of sound arrangement, and on "I dont want to live forever" he shows his considerable merits as a composer of solo musique concrete. A co-release between Gameboy and the newly formed Little Enjoyer, this is Kelleys third solo release. For this recording he takes as source material recordings from minidisc and microcassette made during a tour with Mike Bullock and edits them into a single 35+ minute composition. The results are unlike anything Kelley has done before: rigorous, methodical tape-collage, in turns pensive and aggressive, brittle and supple. The record becomes a revolving exploration of a set of atmospherics, rigidly set into a rusty frame of tape-hiss, fragments emerging from the dreams of a long convalescence. Kelley openly acknowledges his musical reference points in the liner notes, but those citations serve only to make more unfamiliar what is already strangely shaped. Not one that assimilates easily to categories, its as uneasy as a pederast at a PTA meeting. Crucial stuff." - Little Enjoyer. Mastered by Jason Lescalleet, with liner notes by Oliver Alden and Leif Elggren.

Spider John Koerner is the man who first introduced a young Bob Dylan to the 12-string guitar, a bona fide legend who is acknowledged as an influence by artists as diverse as John Lennon, Beck, The Doors & Dylan himself. Nearly 50 years ago, Paul Nelson, writing in the Little Sandy Review and Sing Out respectively, said that "Koerners art is like Chaplins, as great and lasting as it is entertaining," while calling him "the most innovatively brilliant acoustic blues musician of his generation." In the year 2010 -- seldom performing and now in his 70s -- the reclusive Koerner is "one of the worlds greatest living practitioners of traditional American folk music."

Title: New Bodies

Label: Thin Wrist
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
Full Color Heavy Tip-On Cover / 180 Gram Vinyl Edition of 500. "Peter Kolovos, guitarist in Los Angeles trio Open City, presents here three tracks of electric guitar improvisations. Each features successively recorded left- and right-channel guitars, in which the overdub responds asynchronously to the original. While Open City explored the electroacoustic interplay afforded by the two-guitar and drums line-up, in New Bodies, his first solo release, Kolovos lets rip with all the skronk and blurt hes been holding in for the last decade, in tiny, tightly gated segments. His sound vocabulary is very broad, and his control of texture and timing is masterful. Using equalisation, reverb, envelope shaping and volume control... He rapidly opens and closes the volume window on a dizzying series of extended guitar techniques, creating the inescapable impression of Derek Bailey covering The Residents Duck Stab. If that wont sell records, I dont know what will. This electrifying effect is enhanced by the crisp digital recording and the superb Dubplates and Mastering pressing job - every clang and buzz is right up in your grill. Released on Kolovoss own imprint, the packaging continues the good work. The cover features a magnificent photograph of the guitarist taken by Joyce Campbell using the mid-19th century tin type process, which requires a sitting of over three minutes. The resulting image is as physically time based as the recording it encloses, and has the distinctive look of a Victorian death mask - no posing or even facial expression is possible. In this regard the cover is an exact metaphor of the recording - what you perceive is exactly what you get." - Bruce Russell, The Wire August 2009.

They are influenced by Fassbinders ideas the writers Rolf-Dieter Brinkmann & Eugene Ionesco, and the music of Neue Deutsche Welle bands such as EA-80, Fehlfarben, and Freiwillige Selbstkontrolle, classic Krautrock like Neu and Can, as well as Wire, The Units, and Devo. Since 2004, theyve played a number of live show and released two limited edition CDs - Mitmachen beim Abbauen (2006), followed by Mehr Kilometer pro Leben (2007). We liked the CDs a lot and, when they went instantly out of print, convinced our Berlin buddies to let us put them on vinyl. And so we have “Heute Schlafen - Morgan Aufwachen”, a double album of neo-NDW sounds. The foundation is a Wire like simplicity but throughout the records you hear all the groups mentioned above. Yann and Felix both take up the vocals, cool German poetically intoned over their post-post sound. We are excited to introduce the world to Krysmopompas.

Some of Kubins most gorgeous and adventurous works are his contributions to "The Raft" (a radio play by the mysterious Xentos Bentos of The Homosexuals, directed by Lukas Simonis of Coolhaven, Trespassers W, Dull Schicksal) and his soundtracks for theatre plays by Branko Simic ("Zufall", based on a short story by Vladimir Nabokov) and the notorious Schorsch Kamerun. The latter (known in Germany as a member of Goldene Zitronen) directed "Hollywood Elegien" based on a song cycle by Bert Brecht and Hanns Eisler. Now the best parts of these works are for the first time available on LP and CD, simply (and aptly) titled "Music for Theatre and Radio Play". While the musical spectrum on this release covers a variety of styles and moods its still almost immediately recognisable as a typically Kubin-ist work featuring the main ingredients his records and body-and-mind-boggling live shows are famous for. Twisted rythms & playfully clever arrangements that could have been created by a mutated reincarnation of the legendary Juan Esquivel; hauntingly ethereal tracks sounding like a narcoleptic John Carpenter playing Angelo Badalamenti arrangements; contorted Big Band music, pre-war Schlager and Vaudeville sent through a malfunctioning pre-digital time machine; Ennio Morricone cloned as a Russian male choir; instrumental workers songs Hanns Eisler might have imagined in a feverish nightmare - its all there, and more!" - Dekorder.

"This was the first release, in 1997 by a man named Felix Kubin, before stepping into the world of fame. So riding on this fame its been re-issued with a new mix of the original b-side. The a-side is indeed a slow, rock-rhythm box pieces, with nicely humming organ lines, a sweet little melody. A quasi eastern-Europe feel comes to live in the form of wind blowing over the tundra. And tundras shaking ahead on the flipside, via a casio rhythm and a more up-tempo song. Here to similar eastern Europe feelings float by, in what is a very joyful and up-tempo song. Great to have it back in print." - Vital Weekly.

Price: $15.25
"The use of amateurism and error as a compositional device characterize the music of Tori Kudo, particularly in his group Maher Shalal Hash Baz. His wife, Reiko, is nowhere near as prolific (just two short albums in the last ten years) but her interests lead her more towards the pursuit of spontaneity and a considered naturalness. Both share a desire to jolt the experience of playing and listening to music out of stale routines and atrophied sensibilities ®C but through play and a haiku-esque close attention to daily life, rather than with a gun to the head. The albums are suffused with a warm, almost alchemical domesticity, rooted in the familiar rhythms of home, community and the seasons. Hito was recorded from summer through to early autumn 2005 and the drowsy heat of the season lies over it like a mosquito net. The hesitant vocals and piano that open its first track are underpinned by what initially sounds like the faint wow and flutter of a cheap tape recorder. Suddenly, as though a window has been flung open, the distortion is revealed to be the pylon-buzz of cicadas in the garden outside. As the sound rises to fill the room, the senses are beguiled, place, time and sensation evoked with the most minimal of means. Kusa sounds slightly stiffer as it takes us from autumn through winter, but on both albums the spare instrumentation is enjoyably creative, with kitchen-cupboard percussion, a vacuum cleaner, the sound of the rain and a gang of local kids on recorders melded effortlessly around the romantic flourishes of Toris piano playing. Reikos albums are always song-based, miniature wisps of melody that sound like something composed over the washing-up, the words perfectly balanced between observation and signification. Her voice has that childlike upper register of many Japanese female singers, but with a definite strength in the low notes. Most striking is her enunciation ®C the slightest tremor of hesitation, a lack of demonstrativeness that makes Vashti Bunyan sound like Whitney Houston, the voice pitched uncannily into an area where the exhaled breath seems to shimmer naturally into song. This is captivating and at times heartbreakingly emotive work." - Alan Cummings, The Wire June 2006

Originally hailing from Tampere she is known as a core member of Avarus, Anaksimandros, Kukkkiva Poliisi and Maniacs Dream.

"YŰ㲫ehrŰ䱢 is the first of two vinyl-only LPs on the Dekorder label compiling the best material from her first four CD-R and cassette releases, all of which immediately became much sought after collectors items, fetching ridicolous prices on the eBay market. This LP is a beautifull collection of haunting (sometimes spooky) home baked freeform folk songs, strange lo-fi loops, vocal drones and psychedelic cut-ups, made using weirdly tuned plucked and strummed strings, bells, clattery percussion, unidentifiable wind instruments, backwards tape loops and a ton of other noisemakers all played and recorded by herself; accompanied by her distinctive voice (often looped and layered) with vocals sung and whispered in her native Finnish language making the whole atmosphere even more haunting and mysterious. Jonna Karanka creates an intimate space where the listener feels like sitting next to her in a small chamber or outside in the woods where Kuupuu sings a lullaby just for him. Were proud to say that this has to be one of the most exciting debut albums of the year.

Artist: LABELLE, BRANDON
Title: Automatic Radio
Format: CD
Label: Fringes
Country: Italy
Price: $12.50
"This new Cd by Brandon Labelle includes three new compositions: "Speaking in Tongues": Conflating "human speech" with "animal speech"--a mimicry that draws thetongue outside "idiolectical" usage (to speak as a good boy should)--language and the body become part of the same mechanism of conveying a message; though in turn, this conflation emphasizes the schism that ruptures this process--the tension inherent in "speaking as a body (sensuality)" and "speaking as an individual (social behavior)". "Multitude-Solitude": This work was commissioned by Kunstradio and was produced during a 3-daystay in Vienna in August 2000. In response to the invitation to make a work for radio I decided to produce all the sound-materials while in Vienna, drawing upon a direct relationship to the city and my experience there. This process consisted of primarily two activities: firstly, amplifying pre-recorded sounds of "crowds" from various events and functions in public spaces in Vienna, and re-recording them--in essence, overlaying public spaces and public crowds on top of each other and highlighting the "multiplicity" of overheard voices, and through this, how language becomes abstracted when it is situated against public space; secondly, taking a series of walks around Vienna with contact microphones taped to the bottoms of my shoes. What resulted from these walks was a kind of sonic residue of the meeting between body and space, between private experience and public environment, underscoring how as an individual one is always part of a greater situation." "Pillow Talking"(in collaboration with l. chasse): This work was produced as a parallel performance to a concert by John Hudak at 7hz, San Francisco, September 2000. The parallel performance occurred through recording Hudaks own performance by placing contact microphones on a glass floor from a mezzanine within the performance space. In addition, a second contact microphone was mounted on a metal cooking funnel which I then placed inside my mouth. In essence, the final work is a combination of Hudaks performance and the subsequent "translation" of it as recorded through the microphones. This "translation" is in turn mediated through the architectural structure of the performance space, the metal funnel and through the cavity of my mouth. Edition of 500 copies in oversized cardoboard folder, with a color photo by Renato Rinaldi. Includes the text "Automatic Radio" by Brandon Labelle." - Fringes.

Title: Hasenlove
Format: Picture Disc LP
Label: Dekorder
Country: Germany
Price: $18.50
""Hasenlove" is the debut musical release of Hamburg visual artist Antonia Leukers. Shes a founding member of "Institut Hasenbart", a 10-piece artist collective dedicated to a meta-scientific research of hares and related social, zoological and aesthetical phenomena in reference to the art world and pop culture. Leukers has previously created stitched, sewed and animated sculptures while casually growing cucumbers, working for a local in-vitro fertilization hospital and advising young people on erotic issues as a German Dr. Ruth for a popular Online magazine. Inspired by a journey to Island, hearing local travel guides spontaneously interweaving their narrations with sudden outbursts of folklore chanting and an encounter with Wolfgang M (Die Tche Doris) strategy of transforming and combining his (pseudo-)scientific, documentary and social research into a musical and artistic performance she started to elaborate her fellow artists lectures with musical renditions. As a passionate DIY home-recording artist she has soldered her own microphones, used cheap toy instruments, gameboys and minidisc recordings of kitchen sounds to create her very own bricolage comic universe. By recycling corny AOR mainstream Rock/Pop songs into some oddly disturbing and wonderfully weird rabbit love songs with newly-made German lyrics and combining these with some truly strange original compositions (ranging from freeform collage to distorted techno to deranged singer/songwriter stuff), she has created a musical love story in 7 parts. Spiritually influenced by (though not really sounding alike) German "Neue Deutsche Welle" artists such as Der Plan and theatrical and surreal performance bands like The Residents her versions of popular love songs sound like a teenage/female Andrew Lloyd Webber on bad acid. This 1-sided vinyl-only picture-disc LP is a strictly limited edtion of 300 copies. Both the gorgeous design and ornamental etching on the b-side have been done by fellow Hasenbart founding member Renate Nikolaus." - Dekorder.

"Its been a couple years and some since the world has heard from LOS LLAMARADA. Aside from some emails back and forth describing the deterioration of Llamaradas hometown, Monterrey, under siege in the Drug War, I hadnt heard from out friends down south. Then in Fall 2010 I received nine cassette tapes full of Llamarada recordings, pretty much most of the stuff theyd been working on over the last two years. I spent the next few days going through them, quickly realizing that there was more material than an album could handle. So Llamarada and I plucked out a couple of killers for a 7" (and started working on the other cuts for a full length later in 2011). To start, Llamarada gives us their jump on Rezo Por Voz, a classic by Argentinian rock legends Luis Alberto Spinetta and Charly Garcia. In the Llamarada way, what you hear of Rezo Por Voz in The Restless Light are hints and dustings of the original. This is no straight cover, but a psych punk romp of claustrophobic proportions. Flip the single over and we have A Current, an original taut and moody, a guitar drones spaghetti western style over a tense plain. Drop this into the opening scene in El Topo and I wouldnt complain.

The six improvisations on the album were recorded in the Lower Hutt Baptist Church in 1998.

Recorded in the cavernous dark of Echo Canyon West, with producer Lee Ranaldo working the boards like a diviner, BOSS documents the Markers with a previously unheard fidelity and orchestration. Idiosyncratic song structure and melodies interspersed with a destructive drum stomp are reminiscent of the early electrified blues of Junior Kimbrough, or the black hole rhythms of Kousokuya. Mixing a gentle vulnerability with a winded egomania, the Markers have always had a musical tunnel vision; BOSS is that vision made manifest. The tug of war the Markers enact, the way they are fully prepared to start yanking their world apart as they find themselves losing their place in, makes moot possibilities of greatness or mediocrity. It makes them unapologetic soothsayers with their ears pressed to the ground, waiting for footsteps. With Peter Nolan, we finally hear what Lou Reed would have sounded like had he sallied with the drums instead of getting seduced by the easy praise of front man status. Like Rashid Ali squeezed into the Teutonic leather pants of Faust, Nolan drums like there are hell hounds at his heels but he just cant be bothered. Here both laconic and frenzied, Nolans drumming arms reach out like an octopus: tickling the ivories, humming the organ and blasting taps on some kind of endtime trumpet. As a pianist, Nolan reminds us that the piano is a percussive, beating out the whoomp of some old war dance, a bare foot-fall rhythm of fighters to battle and the heavy hands of a whiskey burlesque in the afternoon. Nolan is easy to underestimate, but finally, here is high fidelity record of the strange soul of one of Americas most natural and quizzical musical minds." -Ecstatic Peace. Vinyl issue of the EP CD.

Title: Live Aoiheya January 2003
Format: CD EP
Label: Chapter Music
Country: Australia
Price: $9.50
"Maher Shalal Hash Baz is the oddly-named band for Japanese cult figure Tori Kudo and his wife Reiko (the name is apparently a Hebrew biblical phrase that Tori translates as °∞be quick if you mean to steal something°±). Since the late 1970s, Tori has been a pioneering figure in Japanese punk, post-punk and avant-garde circles, beginning with bands such as GuysnDolls, Cock CNell, Noise and Tokyo Suicide (a cover band dedicated to New York synth-punk pioneers Suicide). Tori formed Maher Shalal Hash Baz in the mid 80s with neighbours who could not play any instruments, and for the better part of 20 years has been pursuing a single-minded vision of music as simple, spontaneous and unpredictable. The bands always changing lineup of anywhere from three to thirty people features mostly untrained musicians playing music often shown to them on the day of its performance, expressing the innate beauty of failure as much as of success. The band began releasing records in 1989, but did not come to worldwide attention until a decade later, when their marvelously ambitious triple album Return Visit To Rock Mass was released. MSHB were invited to tour outside of Japan for the first time. In 1999, when UK label Geographic released From A Summer To Another Summer, a compilation of Maher recordings. Soon the band were touring the US and Europe regularly, and Geographic released their most recent album Blues Du Jour in 2003. Live Aoiheya January 2003 documents an entire brief performance by this unique band, incidentally the first Maher show that Chapter boss Guy Blackman saw after moving to live in Japan in 2002 (he returned to Melbourne in 2004). It captures the band in a variety of guises unusual even for them, including an extended abstract instrumental, songs based on conversations between band members, passages by Japanese composers, vocal relays and a Brahms Waltz. In the EPs 26 minutes Maher Shalal Hash Baz manage to cover more ground than most bands do in their whole career, all the while maintaining a spirit and idiosyncracy that is idenitifiably their own." - Chapter Music.

Title: Mainliner Sonic

Country: USA
Price: $15.50
"Psychedelic Solid Free Attack Group, Mainliner, were and will always be the worlds most powerful Speed-Freak psychedelic rock outfit. One of many concept groups containing both Nanjo Asahito(High Rise) and Kawabata Makoto(Acid Mothers Temple), Mainliner was a Psychedelic Power-Trio using 60s punk formula to create a solid foundation for "motor psycho" guitar-solo exploration, Ultra Cool echo vocals, and beyond free-jazz drum energy. Typical of Nanjos production, Mainliner is the quintessential blown-out Fuzz band, using crushing distortion across the entire mix, killing fidelity but greatly enhancing the intensity and liveness of the listening experience. Mainliner Sonic, the bands 3rd album, is the most sonically destroyed of all. Released on CD by Charnel in 1997, Assommer is proud to resurrect this long out of print noise relic onto 12" clear vinyl. Limited to 500 copies" - Assommer.

Their unique/bizarre approach to music-making constantly questioning the construction/deconstruction of sound creates songs at times recalling the electro-acoustic clatter drone of Avarus crossed with tribal rhythms and intergalactic guitar zones.

Artist: MARTIAL CANTEREL
Title: You Today
Format: LP
Label: Wierd
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"Wierd Records is proud to present the new album by Martial Canterel entitled You Today. Since his first live performances in 2002, Sean McBride, aka Martial Canterel (who also performs as half of the duo Xeno & Oaklander), has produced a rich catalog of self-released and limited edition LPs, cassettes, and compilation tracks. The carefully crafted, private, raw, and often feverishly aggressive minimal synth sound he has pioneered has been a pillar influence for the Brooklyn minimal electronics scene and and beyond. Merging the influences of the first wave of relatively unknown minimal electronic bands in northern Europe, and seminal industrial noise bands such as Throbbing Gristle and SPK, with the smoothly stylish songcraft of early British New Wave, Martial Canterel records and performs using analogue synthesizers, sequencers and drum machines exclusively. Thoughtful yet distinctly danceable and infectious, this record is the apex of McBrides icily idiosyncratic sound. You Today incorporates bright, urgent melodies that snake and and swagger between major and minor keys. The songs emanate a subtle melancholic darkness and a rhythmic, militant propulsion keeping things moving against all odds. Lyrically, the album continues McBrides exploration of the increasing difficulty in trying to connect with real people and real things as technology renders the material substance of bodies and objects ever more abstract and distant. This yearning for unmediated human contact with the world is appropriately echoed throughout the album by the hands-on, entirely live approach to recording and performance ("the molding of electricity" as he has referred to his compositional technique.) "Market" and "Sidestreets" each delve into the disconcerting atmospheres of crowds, buildings, objects and intimates; the city with its boulevards, by-ways, and dead ends complicating the meeting of two lost and wandering figures (perhaps lovers?) The restrained, sensual haze of "The Empty Sand" conjures oceanic imagery while the title track is a lament to love lost, ambiguously addressing the listener as a memory image of potential connection and attraction. The solitary listener can certainly enjoy the music of Martial Canterel, but its visceral intensity also translates directly to the dancefloor. Amidst a flurry of flesh in motion, in a blissful atmosphere of material connection with others, the concepts that permeate the music and its creation become a reality." - Wierd.

Title: The Witch Channel
Format: LP

Country: USA
Price: $14.50
"Sometimes, throughout the process of creating a record, it is easy to forget how much magic is involved. When one is surrounded by wires, microphones, dials, tubes, screens, and stomp boxes there can be a decided lack of mystery. These are the earliest Black Dirt recordings, originally captured a mere few days after our humble doors were opened. As a matter of fact, everyone involved approached the experience as a sort of favor youll be our guinea pig and well do our damn best to get a good document out of it. Matta Llama dug in for a session and did what they do so well... wordlessly picking up their instruments and at certain points, each others and opening up that secret door that allows access to a timeless wellspring of past and future sounds. After the band had improvised more than an albums worth of music, something seemed off on playback. Another session was scheduled and a different approach was taken. Oddly, the results were the same. We placed the recordings on a shelf and high fived each other before they rode off on their way back to the big, dark city. And there the recordings sat. But a funny thing happened a few years later after we received our Alchemists robe in the mail. We went back to the them and realized that whatever was leaden about the sounds Matta Llama had laid down so many months before was purely a result of a young studio and novice engineer! - and once some of those problems were corrected, a blazing, golden, psychedelic beacon shot out of the speakers. The band was immediately contacted and at an impromptu meeting many things were discussed. Seeds grown to trees, lead to gold, and finally the idea of this record. Now, so many years later, this record glows with magic. It is hard to believe that there were any of the mundane trappings of a studio involved at all. It is a swirling, mysterious, and dark record and the document of the birth of Black Dirt and were proud to present The Witch Channel to you." - Black Dirt. Edition of 500.

Title: Deads EP
Format: 12"
Label: Hurling Man
Country: USA
Price: $8.25
"If youre a fan of listening to AmRep-style, throat-hammering noise rock while operating a lawnmower, Sacramentos Mayyors have been your favorite band for quite a while now. The stories that Ive heard about the general directive of this band (self-release ten singles and call it a day, suggest a coastal alliance and rarely leave the state of California) points towards a treatise on how to make people remember them. I hope the streak of conceptual purity holds out, and it looks as if it might, because this four-song 12" is better than their first two singles. Luxurious 45 RPM mastering at as little as four minutes per side makes this one of the loudest punk records since In Love with Jetts, guaranteeing that whatever rental properties its played in are going to lose significant fractions of their security deposits. Im not normally a fan of effects pedal abuse, but what Chris Woodhouse does with them on Clicks, the way he builds a simple, two-note progression into percussive blastloops that line up with the drums, and dial through them like the channel knob on a now-useless TV set, has turned me around. These guys busted DJ Ricks forehead open at a house show -- not on purpose, of course -- but when was the last time any of you felt so much for a band that you were willing to risk bodily harm to let them play? I think he took the hit for us all. Serious Hazelmyer/Gear Jammer worship put to a hefty rhythm section that fires the kick on the up and the down beats, possessing that rolled-up-in-a-rug-and-tossed-downhill sorta ambiance that really makes these sorta things come together. Prolonged exposure to these times has been difficult. Mayyors dont take the burn away, but they do blot out the rest of the world for refreshing, two-three-minute bursts -- in the parlance of the Cinco Toilet Shower, just enough time to get clean." - Doug Mosurok.

"Bruce McClure is well known on the international experimental film circuit for his unique projector performances that utilize film loops & modified 16mm projectors. But there is also an equally innovative sound element to his work and he has been embraced by the experimental music community as well. Bruce performed at the Chocolate Monk curated Colour Out of Space festival in 2008 and was chosen as an opening act for Throbbing Gristles reunion tour in the spring of 2009. During McClures performances the optical sound signals from each projector are fed through banks of guitar pedals, manipulated live, and played at extremely high volumes through the p.a. system. The different loops phase in and out of each other resulting in what could be described as a power electronics version of the early tape experiments of Steve Reich and Terry Riley, while sparser sections have an off-kilter minimal techno feel reminiscent of Plastikman and the early works of Thomas Brinkmann. This album features four excerpts from a professionally recorded performance in early 2009 at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, MN.

"Cititrax is proud to present Medio Mutantes debut 12 inch EP. The six tracks on this record are the product of a serendipitous meeting of minds and the feverish week of recording sessions that followed. Mariana Saldana, Jose Cota and Seth Nemec met in 2007 in Austin Texas and began recording the same night, writing the title track Inestable as soon as the synths had been plugged in. Drawing on a shared love of synthesizers and drum machines, each had worked as a solo electronic artist before uniting, the three immediately found a shared vision. Having grown up listening to Hip-hop, Jazz, Latin freestyle and New Wave records from Europe, America and Japan, Medio Mutante wrings a mutated blend of raw and propulsive energy from their limited analogue gear. The bands name, literally “Average Mutant” in Spanish, is also an indication of their subtle perversion of familiar themes in their songs. Love, science fiction, and disenfranchisement in a future gone bland are turned on their ear in 6 danceable electro songs sung in Spanish and English. Medio Mutante are an American band, born of working class values, with their feet planted in the past but looking to the future. Limited edition of 600 copies." -Cititrax.

Title: (onkyo ok)
Format: CD

Country: New Zealand
Price: $9.50
"Launching CMRs new line of hand-numbered 78rpm dust jacket CD packaging is Dutch sound artist Roel Meelkop. Roel was a founding member of audio art group THU20 in the early eighties who continue to perform and record, is currently a member of electro-acoustic live project Kapotte Muziek, and the electronic rhythm group GOEM (both along with Frans De Waard and Peter Duimelinks). Roel has a long history of visual art, sound installation, curation and organization of various live music events in Rotterdam, his city of residence, and abroad. His well-received solo work has been released on numerous labels including trente oiseaux (Ger), V2_Archief (Neth), line (US), Intransitive Recordings (US), Korm Plastics (Neth) and most recently Tariff Records (US) and Klingfilm (Bel). onkyo ok is composed of recordings made during Roels tour to Japan in summer 2001 (along with Frans De Waard and Peter Duimelinks). Where Kiyoshi Mizutanis Yokosawa-iri CD (cmr1) uses primarily rural sound sources from a selected area, onkyo ok may strike a special chord and familiarity with anyone who has visited Japans urban areas, cities and outlying regions. Various components of the rich Japanese soundscape (to name a few: pachinko parlours, train crossings, crows, electrical machines, people) have been captured, abstracted (or not), blended and re-composed creating unique sonic snapshots of this beautiful and at times bewildering country. The sound pieces are relatively constant over time (Roels characteristic silences are at a minimum) containing numerous complimentary sources simultaneously building together into broadband structures, then falling away to focus on various seperate objects and events. This album serves as a beautiful document and expression of the ever-changing Japanese acoustic environment as it was at the beginning of the twenty first century." - CMR.

Along with the recent Pain Jerk/Incapacitants split CD and the upcoming Aaron Dilloway/Carlos Giffoni split LP, Live Destruction at No Fun 2007 manifests itself as an essential audio document of one of many striking performances at this years festival. Often considered a genre best experienced live, the gargantuan walls of outer-region sonics set forth by noise were aptly spawned in-the-moment and afresh by their performers, and the variety, sheer power, and unrelenting confidence of Merzbows set in particular no doubt left longtime followers thoroughly fulfilled while those whove only heard the name thrown around in mythical regard were bound to have been left with a hearty appreciation of his genius.

And then what happens is Other People. From a note sounded in 1960 and held for a long time, a continuum of Sound has been sluiced along a diagonal of personal ecstasy, and some have come to call it a Drone. Surrounding the Drone is a genre, and within, wheat and chaff often comingle all too comfortably. But with tones as thick and texturally luxuriant with spiritual resonance as their long, glorious hair, Messages are the two worthy gurus currently contributing to the echo. Messages evoke the womb. And when the womb smiles, it whispers Messages, and then there is the first glimmer of Light.." - Meassges.

"Anamnestic Tincture is a live album by virtuosic musical carpenter Paul Metzger, culled from many hours of concert recordings. Side one comprises Metzgers public debut on his modified banjo, recorded in 2002 at a former church-turned-underground art space in Minneapolis. One of his most memorable compositions, "After Milo" later turned up as an untitled improvisation on his CD for the Chairkickers label. Jumping ahead six years (and several more banjo alterations later) to side two, the glittering "Orans" gets a workout at a memorial show for the artist Matt Zaun. As an acknowledgment of the occasion, Metzger also gave a one-time-only performance -- "Dark Green Water" -- on another of his mutant instruments: an acoustic guitar with the body drilled out to accommodate a cymbal set into its face, and ten assorted strings of varying lengths laid over the top, giving it a particularly metallic and dissonant sound.

Artist: MIZUTANI, KIYOSHI
Title: Yokosawa-iri
Format: CD
Label: CMR
Country: New Zealand
Price: $9.50
"CMR is happy to present its first release by long term sound artist Kiyoshi Mizutani. A former member of Merzbow, Mizutani has been creating his solo work since 1989, delving into areas of electronic noise, structural sound systems of feedback and instrumentation as well as natural compositional arrangements of field recordings. Yokosawa-iri falls into the latter category. All field recordings were made at this Satoyama, a traditional form of agricultural environment consisting of a mountain, a rice field and a small village where people and nature coexist in harmony. With beautiful clarity Mizutani illustrates an environment and its inhabitants through the delicate combination of found sounds both natural and mechanical. The Satoyama is a very rare setting in contemporary Japan, no doubt one of the reasons Mizutani chose to document the area. Constructed from overlapping forest sounds of wind, trees, birds, rocks, insects, animals and children (to name a few sources) the tracks rise and fall with intensity, at times suggesting the encroaching modern world on this traditional area. Yokosawa-iri is a beautiful entry into Mizutanis already impressive dossier of sound work." - CMR.

Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Destijl
Country: USA
Price: $12.50
"Troubling rituals are gathering. Haggling skills are becoming golden chisels, and granite belts grind them to sparks. Turning with traction, these sparks gather like flies. The kinetic tones of acceleration found within Mother of Fire combs the psyche for hints of panic and replaces it with an imperative momentum. Drive away superficial doubt like a herd of unwanted beasts, and allow the sagacious freedom our instinct rightfully deserves, its requisite course. Channeling this responsibility with confident sincerity, the troubling is at once the relaxing. This conviction and tolerance is persistent, enabling a bloodletting which battles to cure and to cull. Without the contemporary irony used to punctuate and justify in distanced safety, Mother of Fire instead creates an honest reflection through brave hand forged lenses. Churned in memory-like cycles the ritual is commanded by searing bow strokes and a Muscovy glass voice. Silhouette elements pass decree through almost ancient melodic incantation. The stable hand of song in a world saturated with scattering distraction. Beside these earnest standards a rich understandable darkness, like the pulse of frozen lakes and failing factories, urges us toward the terrible, daunting and sublime. It is here in the folds of both endurance and remedy that Mother of Fire sways with darkness until darkness swoons." -Asa Irons

Artist: MOTOR GHOST
Title: A Gold Chain Round Her Breast
Format: LP
Label: Dancing Wayang
Country: UK
Price: $23.50
"MOTOR GHOST is the new project of free drummer / vocalist Alex Neilson and multi-instrumentalist Ben Reynolds. Both Glasgow residents and frequent collaborators on the live circuit, A Gold Chain Round Her Breast is their first recorded document as a duo. From the brooding opener through tracks of soaring electricity to the beautifully fragile a capella rendition of the folk song Leaves Of Life, this album sees Alex and Ben exploring darkness and light and all shades in between. Alex drumming provides much of the backbone of the album supporting and conversing with Bens acoustic and electric guitars, loops and the call of the d(a Greek horn). Recording in a studio environment allowed MOTOR GHOST to define their sound and experiment with overdubs to lay down some intense tracks. The album comes in screenprinted sleeves, all of which have been hand embellished with gold enamel and are individually numbered. ALEX NEILSON SOLO bonus disk – The first 100 copies of the album include a 3” bonus disk containing a 4 song solo vocal set Alex performed at the Macbeth in London the day before the MOTOR GHOST studio session. The bonus disk features exclusive liner notes by Scottish folk singer Alasdair Roberts (Drag City). ALEX NEILSON has been drumming up a storm in the last few years playing with some of the UKs finest innovators like Richard Youngs, Ashtray Navigations, Taurpis Tula and Scatter as well as accompanying Jandek on his first ever and subsequent UK live shows. More recently hes been playing internationally with Bonnie Prince Billy and developing his solo project Directing Hand further to include (solo) singing as well as his inspired freeform drumming. Alex personal interest to investigate parallels between improvised, experimental and more traditional folk music is clearly audible on A Gold Chain Round Her Breast. BEN REYNOLDS (www.benreynolds.tk) is an improviser, guitarist and composer who has been an active participant in the UK underground music scene for several years, playing and recording as a solo artist as well as in Phil Todds Ashtray Navigations and with such underground activists as Bridget Hayden (Vibracathedral Orchestra), John Fail (Lied Music, Oakwhistle), Andy Jarvis (Sculptress, A Warm Palindrome) and Jani Hirvonen (Uton). More recently Ben has become increasingly interested in the potential of music as a psychedelic force, which can change life by illuminating the usually unconscious faculties of the human psyche." - Dancing Wayang.

Tons of full length albums would be released every year on that label, but nowadays, were lucky if we get more than one per year). True the band seem to permanently be on the road so there is less time to record anything at the Maximum Arousal Farm. The Heroine Celestial Agriculture label has now gone on to become the main outlet for their live recordings (these seem to pop up everywhere like weed - no pun intended) and Im not complaining really, but I do miss all the elaborately packaged albums from the early years. Hick Smoke is the first CoM release for 2009 (Im keeping my fingers crossed for more) and is an interesting mix between the bands bastardized Neil Young clones, their LSD-laced folk tunes and the infamous extended freak-out jams. Sure wish there would be more like this, cuz Hick Smoke is definitely a must for fans." - Manhand.

Title: When the Windmills Whirl Dies
Format: LP
Label: Eclipse
Country: USA
Price: $11.50
"The new work by the space-brothers Maurizio and Roberto Opalio, alias My Cat Is An Alien. Both the words, recited and shaped by Roberto from his own homonymous poem that suggested the title of the album, and the oblique minimalism of the complex musical texture made of flowing space sounds, represent the abstract neo-expressionistic substratum of the whole corpus of the work. Moving throughout a nebula of space dust and debris, the starting spoken-word vocals alongside the percussive section sound as powerfully impressive as the violent imagery of trees beaten down by the storm, while the whispered silence of Perspective of Time and Fallin, on side two, discloses the emotional and existential universe of an isolated broken soul, lost in a world of inanity. This is the center of the No-thing Universe, where each single word or sound assumes the aspect of a sort of pagan prayer that speaks the language of astral folk-blues. In this context, MCIAAs outer space becomes a re-found uterus, meant to be the form of a new self-biogenesis. At the same time, space is conceived as symbol of the eternal theatre surrounding the mysterious cycle of life & death; such infinite space, despite such limited time. This cosmic-chant of the new millennium may heat our nights like a flame left to enlighten the shadows of the coldest darkness." Edition of 600 copies.

"The Mystic Umbrellas made their debut in 1980 on the Deleted Records tape Deleted Funtime with the ethereal, drifting keyboard composition Journey To The West. Compared then to the work of Popul Vuh and The Residents, the pieces meandering mournfulness won admirers, and an album-length release was recorded and planned, but did not come together. Now, over twenty years later, the rediscovered tapes of the lost album have been remastered and remixed for release on the Waterden label. As well as Journey to the West, the album features a suite of five pieces inspired by an eccentric 18th century Northamptonshire parson who decreed in his will that he should be buried on his feather bed in a summer-house in his garden. The story of Langton Freemans Summer-House Tomb is evoked by the gentle, wistful and also faintly eerie sounds of Mark Valentines reed-organ compositions, considerably enhanced by Mark Lancasters sympathetic production. So bid the butler fetch a pot of Earl Grey and a slice of Madeira cake, pull the overstuffed leather armchair up to the study fire and settle back to enjoy what may be the first ever Antiquarian/Chillout crossover album..." - Waterden.

Country: USA

"Dark Entries is honored to present the highly limited second cassette by British duo Nagamatzu for the first time ever on vinyl. °∞Sacred Islands of the Mad°± is a collection of eleven tracks recorded between December 1984 and March 1986 in London by Andrew Lagowski (SETI, Legion, Terror Against Terror) on synths, guitar, and drum machines and Stephen Jarvis (Pure Motorised Instinct, Terraform) on synths, bass and programming. Nagamatzu began in 1982 after messing around with old tape machines and drum boxes, making numerous contributions to international compilations and erratically releasing their own cassettes. Their name comes from a character in JG Ballards °∞Atrocity Exhibition°± and their music reflects his influence and incorporates carefully chosen samples from the Challenger shuttle disaster, Gregorian chants and films including °∞Dawn of the Dead°± and °∞The Omen.°± All the songs were recorded onto a Ferrograph reel to reel in a small room at their parents house and some of the backing rhythms and sequencers were recorded first onto cassette and then the band played along live. Nagamatzus instrumentals combine stuttering bass, guitar bursts and funeral keyboards draped over a dragging drum machine beat, calling to mind Clock DVA, Cabaret Voltaire and early New Order or Cocteau Twins. °∞Sacred Islands of the Mad°± is a complex, textured tapestry of sound full of dark electronics, fresh harmonies and danceable rhythms. All songs have been remastered especially for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios from the original cassette masters. Each LP is limited to 500 hand-numbered copies and includes a newsprint zine full of fliers, gig tickets, ads, and photos." -Dark Entries.

Price: $7.00
"20 City is proud to release Uva, a new CD by sound artist Seth Nehil. In the field of electroacoustic music, Nehil is perhaps best known for his longstanding partnership with John Grzinich and Olivia Block as Alial Straa, formed in 1994. Nehil also participated in the Orogenetics arts collective together with Michael Northam and John Grzinich, operating in Austin, Texas from 1996-99. Now based in Portland, Oregon, Nehil continues to collaborate with Grzinich, Northam and Block in sound, performance and organization. Seth Nehil possesses an uncanny ability to create a wealth of sounds using innovative recording and performance techniques, without relying on effects boxes and processors. He creates complex sound environments that are subtle, clear and close. His sounds seem to emphasize the very silence that surrounds them, creating an infinite space for the listeners imagination to roam. Uva presents one track, just over 20 minutes in length. Objects in motion, a complex layering of textures, circular sounds and harmonies that intensify and recede... these are the constituent parts of this engaging new work. The term "uva" means grape, associated with ferment and intoxication, and is also associated with "ova" (the womb, birth, new forms). Uva thus implies the intoxication of new forms, the pleasure and disorienting quality of this music, the ferment of its creation, and the birth of its reception through the ear." - Richard di Santo.

Awash in the whips and twangs of a spring loaded reverb tank and faint hints of a distant drum kit, Nerve Citys hook-driven songs recall the hard-charging down-strokes of the Velvet Undergrounds more driving moments or, more recently, the psychedelia of West coast kindred spirits in Sic Alps and the Gris Gris. Over the past several years, the band has cemented a rep both live and on record. First came the Catholic School demo tape and the follow-up, Hell (both via Amateur Depression), then quickly sides on Severed Hand, Kill Shaman, HoZac, and Sweet Rot.

Title: Troubled
Format: CD
Label: Companion
Country: USA
Price: $10.50
"Welcome to the first commercial release of Troubled, the sole output from Vancouver, British Columbias all-but-forgotten Jesus rock trio, the New Creation. Originally pressed in 1970 in the vinyl LP format in a limited run, this album never quite made it out of its hometown borders. It would be another two or three decades before anyone outside of the groups small circle would hear it at all. The obscurity of this album is impossible to overstate. Only 100 vinyl copies were ever produced and none were available commercially. The New Creation were partly inspired by the music of the Jesus People movement, a Christian adaptation of the 60s movement, which shared the same Haight-Ashbury district birthplace. Jesus People patterned their language, fashion, and music after their hippie neighbors in an attempt to update their expression of faith. This street level movement gained mainstream media exposure around 1970 and within a year cover stories ran in Newsweek, Life, and U.S. News and World Report. Musicians in this scene plotted their own course in an attempt to counteract what they saw as the destructive themes in much of mainstream rock music. Acts born out of this grassroots movement would inspire believers worldwide to cut their own record -- contract or no contract." - Companion. "A showcase of raw, inventive musicality. Categorically, its -- I dunno -- Sixties Garage Godcore? Yet it transcends being a mere period piece. The songwriting is deliriously brilliant, the lyrical perspective haunting. The bands sincerity is unquestionable, even if its meters are unfathomable." - Irwin Chusid.

Title: Disassociate
Format: LP
Label: Avant Savant
Country: USA
Price: $12.25
"A line drawn in space gradually separates into countless pieces leaving a specter of its former self. On New Humans second release, Disassociate, each track undergoes geometric growth and decay through multiple passing states. With over 25 names for each track, the recording opens with a drone monolith later destabilizing into undulating segments and then finally shattering into a series of interlocking parts. Recorded and engineered by Sean Maffucci at Junkyard Audio Salvage in Brooklyn, the expansive compositions employ an array of sonic and beat combinations created by electric guitars, acoustic drums, oscillators, and handmade effects. In its transformations, each momentary form gives way to the next creating incidental tangents with minimalist drone, early synth music, extreme noise, and Miami trunk bass. For best results play recording at high volume in continuous sequence with subwoofer or substantial low frequency sound system. Vinyl edition of 300 features hand silk-screened glow-in-the dark jacket design and oversized poster insert. Released on Avant/Savant (Mexico City, New York)"

"On New Humans new self-titled CD, the minimalist impulse is harnessed across disparate lines to create raw and improbable compositions, rendering an almost visual experience to listening. Unraveled, deconstructed and repurposed: sonic passages and genre motifs are treated as block and geometric progressions of sound, noise and rhythm. From the systematic meltdown of Sabbath-like doom riffage to the relentless super deformation of Riley and Brancas legacy, each track builds and clear cuts at the same time documenting a body of performances and installation projects by the New Humans in the past two years. New Humans is a hand silk-screened limited edition CD of 200 with custom insert." - New Humans.

"Noise surrounds and permeates us, and no one is more responsible than the New Humans from that loudest and noisiest of metropolises: New York. From installation art to ear splitting live concerts, this infernal power trio lead by artist Mika Tajimi eschews no collaboration, no matter how insane. Guitarist and artistic leader Tajimi is supported by electronics specialist and voice acrobat Howie Chen, drummer Eric Tsai, as well as a large number of guest musicians. The New Humans like nothing more than to drag friend and foe with them into their noise avalanches. Semishigure proudly presents the fourth release, a unique live collaboration with artist Vito Acconci, a pioneer of body/conceptual art, and vintage experimentalist C. Spencer Yeh. This album consists of two concerts that took place during an exposition of the collective at the Elizabeth Dee Gallery in New York. Two electrifying, memorable performances that just had to be registered on CD. The last time American performance legend Vito Acconci collaborated with a band was more than ten years ago, when he worked with punk rock brigade the Mekons. A similarly untainted, classically grim punk attitude shines through in his spoken word performance with the New Humans. “You in the Background” is the name of their jointly raised middle finger to the world. Floating on the ominously swelling waves of noise created by the New Humans, Acconci throws all frustrations overboard. Captive to a feverish, shamanic trip, Acconci speaks of each and everyones search for their own identity. Acconci has made a special selection from his audio works for the occasion. Texts such as “Now do you believe the dirty dogs are dead” (1978) and “Cry, baby!” (1977) still sound like screams for enlightenment and liberation. C. Spencer Yehs plaintive violin careens into the impenetrable wailing wall of feedback. The New Humans not just voice, but scream their anger of life under the Bush regime, and in Acconci they have found a worthy ally. C. Spencer Yeh and the New Humans go the whole hog on the second live concert, an immensely loud drone s顮ce lasting half an hour. Like no other, radical violinist Yeh manages to infiltrate any collective, be it Dream/Aktion Unit, Comets of Fire or Smegma. Through his trademark exorcising Velvets violin sound Yeh manages to create unbearable tension with the New Humans sound avalanches in hot pursuit. During the performance, a glass sculpture is destroyed and the noise of its breaking amplified. At any moment the waves of noise terror threaten to submerge Yeh, but he stands firm. Thank God this all-engulfing live experience has been registered for posterity!" -Semishigure.

The Nightjar Review has excerpted the most ample selection from Songs to date, which were composed in the mid 1950s at a time when Ziprin ran a greeting card company that employed such future luminaries as Bruce Conner, Jordan Belson, and Harry Smith. The Songs were composed in the manner of Mother Goose rhymes and are infused with his own rendering of alchemy and the Kaballah. The first issue of The Nightjar Review is 144 pages perfect bound, with a silk screened dust jacket featuring a new drawing by the artist Bruce Conner.

Label: Intransitive
Country: USA
Price: $13.25
"The highly anticipated double-CD epic by Jason Lescalleet (tape loops) and nmperign (Bhob Rainey - soprano sax, and Greg Kelley - trumpet). The result of six years of live and studio collaboration, LM2X is by far the most ambitious and uncompromising statement yet by this formidable trio. The album begins as a more-or-less straight documentary-style recording of group improvisation, but dont get too comfortable... over the course of the next two hours, the ground steadily shifts, the bottom drops out, and any expectations a listener may have had going in are thoroughly trampled. Fans will find the usual ingredients here: crusty old reel-to-reel tape decks, cheap keyboards, amplified and acoustic horns...but rude tape splices, violent humor, and confusingly degraded fidelity push the music far from safe territory. The visceral drama of LM2X does not neatly spell out its intentions, nor does it signal exactly what it has up its sleeve. It exists in its own universe, demands repeat listens and to be taken on its own terms." - Intransitive.

Price: $13.25
"New York mavericks No Neck Blues Band and Munich-based Krautrock band Embryo explore the indigenous urban music phenomenon on this, their debut collaborative release. The No Neck Blues Band are one of the most enigmatic, mysterious, and defiantly anti-commercial groups to emerge from the New York loft scene during the °ƹ0s. The collective was formed in 1992 around a core of multi-instrumentalists who have stubbornly and admirably insisted on individual anonymity. Incorporating elements of folk, drone, psychedelia, free jazz, noise, and just about everything else, NNCK have nevertheless carved out a distinctive sound from complementary and disparate component elements. One of the most original and innovative Krautrock bands, Embryo fused traditional ethnic music with their own jazzy space rock style. Over their 30-year existence, during which Christian Burchard has been the only consistent member, the group has traveled the world, playing with hundreds of different musicians and releasing over twenty records. Melding their wildly diverse forays into experimental, blues, Middle Eastern, Turkish and African music, these two groups have since become brothers in unparalleled improvisatory spirit, and EmbryoNNCK is the fruit of that merge. To quote Christian Burchard, °∞The NNCK players were flying... Little melodies we never had heard, different moods, rhythmic interplays, and in between the musicmaking it was like we had been together all the time.°± This should be one of the most transcendent releases of the year." - Staubgold.

Different audio fragments on top of each other, over and over again, hand-mixed and orchestrated at what feels like must have been ritualistic tape laborations taken place somewhere where the sun never shines. Various echoes from the past are buried under layers and layers of manipulated voices, train signals, animal sounds and god knows what. Abrupt endings which burns like fire in your head. Churches in flames, the soundtrack to The House With The Laughing Windows played backwards, alien autopsys, cemetery fog, total devestation...

As a compliment to their reissue of that timeless 7”, the freaks at Last Laugh Records have dug up what may qualify as one of the primo “lost albums” of the original American punk rock cream-dream, Vacation To Nowhere. And while this isnt the first time that enlightened members of the public have been given a chance to hear some of the 12 throttling tracks contained on this album (Airline 61 released the retrospective CD Your Punk Heritage in the late 1990s), this is the first time that these recordings have been released as a complete album. Each song on Vacation... stands as a perfect example of 70s power pop craft coarsely blended with spasmodic intensity – late 70s punk polenta. Even with the oddly out of place sentimentality expressed on “Memories”, the band never veers off course. Songs like “Sometimes The Truth”, “What Do You Think Of The U.S.A.?”, and the titular “Vacation To Nowhere”, are (at this point) theoretical classics – I imagine Teengenerate would have covered at least half of this album, had they heard it in 1993.

""Staring at the screen - I can never get enough - Oh baby give me - Some of that stuff" New single taken from the recent series of pop videos created by Sam Meringue of Outer Limits Recordings (aka Matrix Metals, Flashback Repository, Yoga, 90210, The Sweethearts, Foxy Baby, Explorers, etc.). The A-side "I Need My T.V." is a Squeeze-meets-XTC vibed track that will appeal to fans of the Rangers l.p. on OESB as it sounds like a half-remembered lost classic from an 80s infomercial beamed onto a thrift-store VHS. "Burnin Through The Nite" is performed by OLRs The Sweethearts (a collaboration with Zak Mering of Greatest Hits/Raw Thrills) and rides its nocturnal groove all the way to #17 of DJ TONY FRANKELS NIGHT BURNER HIT CHART (circa 1972).

Title: Parabolic Rock - 1975-1982
Format: Double LP
Label: S-S
Country: USA
Price: $15.75
"From their wine-soused, Magic Band obsessed roots to their art-rock/new wave end some ten years later, OZZIE made some fantastic music. They built up substantial followings in Sacramento, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. They were a Mabuhay Gardens regular, sharing the bill with bands like the Weirdos, The Sleepers, VOM, and the Nuns. In Sacramento, they played with everyone from the Rutabaga Boogie Band and the Talking Heads to the Nerves and the Fleshtones. However like many bands of the time, their limited output (only three 7-inches during their lifetime) and difficulty fixing them to one musical subgenre led to their obscurity and ultimately them being forgotten. In the early 90s, S.S. stumbled upon Ozzies 1977 debut single, "Android Love," and flipped. He tracked down one of the bands main members, WILLIAM FULLER, and struck up a friendship with him. A decade later S.S. tosses Fuller the idea to reissue "Android Love" single with a different B side. Fuller digs out some reel to reel tapes, an act that starts a multi-year odyssey through the Ozzie archives. The proto-punk meets glam wildness what made "Android Love" (produced by PUBLIC NUISANCE/TWINKEYZ DAVID HOUSTON) such a great song was present in the tapes, but there was more: Massive doses of Blue Oyster Cult inspired hard rock brilliance, Roxy Music glam drama, Sparks-like art, Bomp! Records-worthy power pop, edgy new wave that recalls the Suburban Lawns, and mid-Seventies-style underground rock sounds that thrill any collector of private press obscurities, all with a Keith Moon/Jethro Tull inspired drummer. By the time, S.S. was done digging through the archives, hed assembled a solid double album worth of unreleased and live material, as well as alternative tracks and a few gems from Ozzies previously released stuff. Complete with a full history of the band, lots of photos, and archival images The Parabolic Rock: 1975 - 1982 is the definitive document of Sacramentos forgotten band, one worthy of mention with Sacto underground icons Public Nuisance, the Twinkeyz, and Tales of Terror." -S-S

She showed an ongoing series of collages constructed in Nat Sherman cigarette boxes, as well as small paintings on wood panels. P.G.

"Continuing many of the themes introduced on Parlor Tricks and Porch Favorites, PG Sixs well-received first record, The Well Of Memory makes nods towards 60s folk artists like Bert Jansch, Pentangle, Incredible String Band, and John Fahey, while also fitting in with contemporary musicians like New York psych folk poster-boy Devendra Banhardt, Anglo-folk traditionalist Alasdair Roberts, and West Coast psych guitarist Ben Chasny of Six Organs of Admittance. Pats lyrics draw on narrative force, spinning mythology in abstract patterns that stretch moments of clarity between dreamlike sequences. His music, composed away from the bustle of the city in upstate New York, breathes as solemn spirituals. With The Well of Memory, P.G. Six transcends revival carving a permanent spot amongst contemporary singer/songwriters." - Amish.

"Commuting Between the Surface & the Underworld continues Peeesseyes pattern of ignoring virtually all patterns but those that spring forth from the swarm of earthquakes in their collective brain. Recorded following an unamplified tour of US noise venues with groups including Nautical Almanac, Life Partners, and Sharks With Wings, this record brings vocals, a more pronounced rhythmic pulse and piles of acoustic instruments to the foreground alongside the waves of electronic density that have characterized past releases. Guests on Commuting Between the Surface & the Underworld include three frequent collaborators of Peeesseye: Clare Cooper, the Australian harpist who adds pedal harp and guzheng (Chinese harp) to two tracks; trumpeter Nate Wooley, who adds brass on °∞Distant Mud;°± and the reclusive conceptualist Shawn Edward Hansen, who provides additional percussion and vocals to two tracks.

"Mexican Summer is beyond psyched to present a hefty, heavy gatefold edition of Linda Perhacss lone album, Parallelograms. On the strength of this single album, recorded in 1970, Linda Perhacs remains a towering figure in the world of psychedelia, folk, female singer-songwriters, and acid-visionaries alike. Lauded by artists as diverse as Daft Punk, Devendra Banhart, Animal Collective, and Swedish metal band Opeth, in the 21st century, her album remains a testament to her singularity of vision. Ignored upon its initial release, Parallelograms seemingly sank without a trace, and Perhacs gave up making music for the next forty years. Psych fans the world over unearthed and began to obsess over this album in the meantime: a spine-tingling blend of crystalline vocal melodies from Perhacs, mind-expanding sound effects, and on the title track, one of the finest aural hallucinations ever captured, equal parts sound sculpture and visual music." -Mexican Summer.

Title: Years Of Struggle Against The Lies, The Stupidity And The Cowardice
Format: LP
Label: Dark Entries
Country: USA
Price: $12.50
"Dark Entries has tapped into their Gothic roots to unearth a 29-year old lost album now available for the first time on vinyl. Years Of Struggle Against The Lies, The Stupidity And The Cowardice was written, recorded and produced by a trio of Danish 18-year olds during a weekend in December 1981. Unable to pay for the recording session, the master tapes were confiscated and the album remained unreleased until the summer of 1985 where it was issued as a bonus cassette with the Danish art magazine Atlas. This is the first and only album from Pesteg Dred, a trio from Denmark made up of Martin Hall (Ballet M®¶canique, Under For, Before), Per Hendrichsen (Dialogue, Ut®¶-Va) and vocalist Inge Shannon, who later starred in Halls project SS-Say. The band combines dark rumbling basslines with austere guitar shrieks and the occasional cello/violin/autoharp to create the perfect tension of soft/loud synthesized post punk. But what steals the spotlight of Martin Halls well-crafted production are the dynamic vocals of Inge Shannon who ranges from cold Teutonic monotone to shrill cacophony at times bringing to mind Nico, new romantic chanteuse Ronny or Simona Buja from Kirlian Camera. This landmark album could have fit perfectly on the 4AD or Factory Records roster alongside A Certain Ratio, Bauhaus or Joy Division. All tracks have been remastered from the original master tapes by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, CA and include a printed interview with Martin Hall as well as a silk-screened image of the original reel to reel master tape. Limited to 500 hand-numbered copies so grab one while you can." -Dark Entries.

Everyone missed and ignored the boat they offered us, and we were all left floating, lonely, in a sea of our own shit. Until now. We truly dont understand how this one got by us upon its initial release, but it did. Picks & Lighters even released a beautiful vinyl record to make sure we wax lovers gave them a chance, no dice though. Their cries of creation fell upon deaf ears; for a good while, anyway. Now, here we are in the year 2006, and there is finally enough time of give some love to the Picks & Lighters crew. So heres a re-release -- with proper jewel case packaging -- of their genius S/T CD from 1999. Their music ombines all sorts of parts including (but not exclusive to) Royal Trux, universal Siltbreeze sounds, Rolling Stones feedback loops, American Primitive volk guitar, Boogie Rock, lo fi form-scrumble, etc. It s a motherfuckin shame this went unnoticed in 1999, but maybe now we can right some wrongs, change the world, and float a boat or two. Cause you know what Thurston Howell says ®C theres always room for another yacht. Hopefully, well eventually have the wherewithal to issue some of their related material, both that of an archival nature, and that which the remnants of Picks & Lighters now create under the name, Newport.

But maybe the pigeon is a crafty bird, content with its own beauty and happy to obscure it to avoid the glare of our ever intrusive public eye.

After a five-hour drive to the town, wasted locals, angry punks and gnarled three-legged dogs greeted them by leading them into a commandeered park. Inside the park, DeBroux found "the ultimate punk rock experience" with townies huffing rubber glue and mohawk-brandishing kids starting fights with crusties. The show ended and the locals gave the band three dollars for their troubles. A few kids asked DeBroux and company to chip in the three dollars on a keg. Soon, the crowd dispersed and left the band with no money or place to stay. The band wound up sleeping on an island between Minnesota and Wisconsin and breaking up soon thereafter.

And so does the duo Pirinen/ StrŰ㲭berg who follows closely in this tradition; the computer music of StrŰ㲭berg mingles with the readings of Pirinen in patterns mainly determined by chance. The result is often as unexpected as it is humorous." - Kning Disk.

Country: USA
Price: $12.50
"1993 - we got our cherries busted with youth noise and desperate freedom. It was a call for musical separation from everything that plugged in and we fuckin got it. We (Jeff Dunn, John Olson & Bryan Ramirez) met many evenings per week for over a year solid, most likely cranked around 200 sessions all recorded on 90 minute tapes - roughly 9000 minutes - all ground into dust, gone. Shit was molded in the walls of 1610 Kzoo St. Lansing, MI, or ransacked by noise bums, or recorded over. But, there was one that got away from the doomhole - a second generation cassette. The recording was at 6am before Ramirez was to catch a flight to Florida - road cone gravity bongs sent this fucker into sleepy-eyed wee-mugs that filed along towards school - periodically glancing at the house to hear this horrendous alien arguement thundering from sax/drums/guitar/keys all aligned in the rocket room. The recording is shattering. Minced analog skreedom recklessly curing informal ills and breaking windows from pure soundwave pressure. Free sound from the early years all innocent-like. Pure and demented is pure demented freedom. Screened covers - killer liners/history lesson by John Olson - limited run." -Killertree.

"POOR SCHOOL started in April 2005 with Bryan Ramirez (gtr), John Niekrasz (drms) and Nathan Hoyme (sax). We first caught wind of this sick noise/jazz/postpunk rock trio when John Olson brought Ramirez other combo Ex-Cocaine (who have a sick new LP on Siltbreeze out NOW) to the No Fun basement a few years back and Ramirez laid some POOR SCHOOL cdr action on us. Needless to say we were buh-lown away by the manic improv hepness and immediately emailed the dude to see if we could slam some POOR SCHOOL magic onto black plastik. And unto Ecstatic Peace was delivered The Holy Master. Ramirez and Olson go waay back when the two of them jammed together in the nascent Michigan underground psychedelic troupe Universal Indians. Ramirez took off to Missoula, Montana to investigate micro-brews and mountain air and help put together the awesome Ex-Cocaine. Hes still there. Niekrasz went to get high on life in India but is expected back sooner than later. Upon his return we can hopefully expect POOR SCHOOL to shed new love and light and chaos for the future."-Ecstatic Peace

SF/Stereomother¢s Randy Lee Sutherland heads this one into the back alleys w/ some pals and lose sense of time and practicality in the best way possible. Poor School on the other hand are just trying to make money by "righting" hit records, but they fuck up every time they pick up an instrument - but y¢know, when you hear drummer Niekrasz pound out this morse code in "mean method" and the sax/gtr combo add to the arguement - just back off and let ¡em justify their violent ambitions.

Artist: PRIMITIVE CALCULATORS
Title: S/T
Format: CD
Label: Chapter Music
Country: Australia
Price: $12.50
"Melbournes Primitive Calculators met as teenagers in the early 70s, growing up in the grim outer suburb of Springvale. An older friend who lived in a bungalow behind his parents house provided an oasis of culture, and there they were introduced to music of a kind rarely heard in their neighbourhood. The Velvet Underground and The MC5 were obvious heroes, but they were also inspired by lesser known bands like The Fugs, The 13th Floor Elevators, and The Godz (they went on to dedicate their album to Godz singer Jim McCarthy) as well as the writing of obsessive rock journalist Lester Bangs. By 1977, they had deserted Springvale for the more musically liberated environs of St. Kilda, sharing a house in Park St and forming a band called The Moths. But they were a couple of years older than most of the punk bands starting up around them, and their uncultured accents clashed with the inner city, private school values of their so-called peers. Well-known figures like Nick Cave (The Boys Next Door, The Birthday Party) and Ollie Olsen (Whirlywirld) would often come by to listen to borrow records, but the Primitive Calculators were always outsiders in Melbournes punk scene. A move to Fitzroy in 1978 helped Primitive Calculators cement their own identity and develop a network of likeminded friends. The band set up a series of gigs called Little Band nights, where up to ten hastily-formed bands, with names like Too Fat To Fit Through The Door and Thrush & The Cunts, would play sets of fifteen minutes each. Their own debut single was also released that year, featuring the songs "I Cant Stop It" and "Do That Dance". Pressed with plain black labels and stark monochrome sleeve, the single introduced many to the impassioned, atonal, electronic chaos that was the Primitive Calculators trademark, and it has gone on to become a highly collectable classic of Australian post-punk. The following year the band attempted to relocate to London, but seeing how difficult life was for fellow expats the Birthday Party and Whirlywirld, hey decided instead to take an indefinite break. A 1979 live recording of a gig supporting The Boys Next Door turned out to be the Primitive Calculators swansong. Released by friend and supporter Alan Bamford in the early 1980s, Primitive Calculators is a crucial document of a band whose originality, power and humorously belligerent Australian mindset has never since been duplicated. But the story didnt end there, as the Primitive Calculators had an unexpected renaissance in 1986, when filmmaker Richard Lowenstein included them in his feature Dogs In Space (starring a young Michael Hutchence). The Primitive Calculators reformed to appear in the movie and recorded their song "Pumping Ugly Muscle" for the soundtrack (the song was also released as a 12" with some original late 70s recordings on the B-side). The Primitive Calculators revival continued a good fifteen years later when Chapter Music released the pioneering Cant Stop It! compilation CD of Australian late 70s/early 80s post-punk. The CD took its name from the Primitive Calculators track "I Cant Stop It!" and included an original 1979 recording of "Pumping Ugly Muscle". Chapter Musics reissue of the Primitive Calculators album, twenty-five years after its original release, includes six bonus tracks (four by the Primitive Calculators, one by the Moths and one by a nameless Primitive Calculators/Whirlywirld hybrid band, recorded in the UK) plus a rarely seen video made for the "I Cant Stop It" single by band friend Janis Lesinskis." - Chapter Music.

Title: Cocaine Death
Format: CD
Label: Hospital Productions
Country: UK
Price: $11.00
"Since the inception of both Prurient and the Hospital Productions label, cassette releases have been an essential format for the communication and participation in the industrial/noise culture. For Prurient, these cassette releases contain some of the most visceral and beloved works in the Prurient catalog. Cocaine Death is a compilation of three of Prurients finest Hospital cassette releases as well as two unreleased tracks. The previously released material forms a triptych exploring the relationship between futile pleasure, substance and escape; escape being a myth. Cocaine Death (originally C-10 packaged in an envelope, limited to 46 copies) is perhaps the most sought after of the recent Prurient cassettes. The content is based on the glamour and destruction of toxic night life. The B-side features guest vocals from FFH and continues the themes with the addition of bondage. This material is a considered classic modern Prurient. Caribbean Overdose (originally a C-10, packaged in a standard shell package and limited to 100 copies) explores a different but strangely direct topic of the sexual reproductive life of plants. There is nothing common or typical about the sounds and direction of this material. Further examination into the life of scientific advancement and education. Tylenol Murders (originally a C-10, packaged in an oversized envelope and limited to 10 copies) takes the sounds and concepts of the aforementioned releases and expands the sounds to further limits of cracked static, strained vocals and strange melodic loops. This sought after limited material is seeing the light on this release to most Prurient listeners for the first time. This collection of cassette material is perhaps the biggest clue in the development of Prurient. This is where the edges blur and advancements reveal themselves. When Prurient material is released in the ether its shock-waves often take on a life of their own. For the first time, listeners of all levels can revel in their abstract longing and tension. For the diehards, two unreleased tracks of Prurient. Theres a reason why these releases continue to live on long after the cassettes disappear. This CD shows the power and depth of Prurient in the cassette world. For those whose spindles still spin and those who have moved on, Cocaine Death shows revelation.

"Considered by the Columbus cognoscenti as the "little brother band" (Stooges-style) to Times New Viking (MC5-style), PSYCHEDELIC HORSESHIT first came about as three buds determined to crash a hippie fest and jam retardo. When asked for their name, singer/guitarist MATT WHITEHURST replied, "Just call us Psychedelic Horseshit." The band killed, the name stuck, and thus the die was ignominiously cast. Since then, they played with the Urinals, Country Teasers, Dan Melchior, Blues Control, toured with Pink Reason and Times New Viking, ruled a couple showcases at the 2007 SXSW, basically doing what they can to lay the foundation for the release of this debut LP (a previous 7-inch on the Columbus Discount label made many 2006 Best Of lists, too). Distempered, jaded, harmonious, and ramshackle, Psychedelic Horseshit keeps the glass half full; the question is, do you have the courage to drink their wry and wizened brew? Sure you do, its the tonic of champions! Shades of early Fall, Swell Maps, and Pavement." - Slitbreeze.

Title: Yeahnahvienna
Format: CD
Label: Soft Abuse
Country: USA
Price: $8.50
"With songs nestled halfway between Xpressways searing static and Flying Nuns dark jangle, Pumices Stefan Neville has quietly created a unique brand of fractured pop since 1991. Despite (or because of) his activity in New Zealands cassette underground for the past 15 years, Neville has only recently begun to crawl into the consciousness of outsider music fans. Yeahnahvienna was conceived and recorded during an artist residency in Vienna in 2004. Nevilles precariously arranged arsenal of cassettes, chord organ, vocals, drums and guitar has yielded a fragile and fractured masterwork. A stark and melancholic affair, calling to mind Alastair Galbraith, Sun City Girls and Supreme Dicks. Through Nevilles layers of hiss and murk lie beautifully stirring & shambolic downer hymns." - Soft Abuse.

Brian Miller & Kevin Shields write: "Recorded at the end of nearly 9 months of touring, Virgin Passwords reflects a long evolution in sound and concept for Brian Miller & Kevin Shields. A combination of mechanical grindings and digital sweeps, mortal shovings and sudden transportations into secret chambers hold the secrets of the Virgins themselves. The Virgins that control the universe. The mafia of the cosmos. Beyond the cliched metaphor of purity and straight to literally not having sex at all. Because a Brian Miller & Kevin Shields performance prooves that a noise show can be (hyper)active, crowd-engaging and knock everything to the floor without invoking angst and self loathing. In other words, without hate-fucking everyone. Virgins." "One side apiece from each of these duos of destruction.

Title: Hissteria
Format: LP
Label: Richie
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"Well its finally here. Its the new LP by PURLING HISS and its called Hissteria. Its two sides of hi-energy psychedelic punk rock & roll that manages to weld Funhouses dialed-in sleaze rhythms to the hungover excess of Hendrix at Woodstock. Or Ginn at Polliwog Park. Its full of clanging cymbals, howling vocals, fretboard heroics, and menacing vibes. PURLING HISS is the work of a well-mannered longhair named MIKE POLIZZE, who is best known for his reckless shredding as the guitar player for Philadelphias BIRDS OF MAYA. Hissteria is a suitable soundtrack for zonked drives across the dead highways of the USA. Or for predawn paranoid sessions as you pace back and forth in the kitchen trying figure out just what the hell youre going to do, man. Or just crank it real loud when the party gets strange. Some people will love it and the rest of them can go somewhere else and go fuck themselves." - Richie Records

Backed by the band Hotlegs, who were moments away from being known as 10cc, Ramases created this one-of-a-kind cosmic folk rarity, a bizarre and alluring message of peace and the supernatural, housed in a six-panel Roger Dean gatefold designed to make your pupils dilate.

Title: Suburban Tours
Format: LP
Label: Olde English Spelling Bee
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Rangers is Joe Knight. "Suburban Tours" is his debut vinyl release after a string of popular cassette albums last year - including "Low Cut Fades" on Not Not Fun. His sound has been referred to out in blogland as "elevator psyche" and "mirrorball funknagogic pop" - and thats not a bad start considering his music is often bass-driven with washes of synth and prog-psych guitar riding over the top. Unlike the extended side-long collages of his cassette releases, "Suburban Tours" is a collection of eleven concise "pop" songs that were written and recorded after moving to San Francisco from his native Texas. Not knowing anyone in this new locale, he describes the period after the move as being extremely lonely and plagued with near-constant rainfall. So he holed up and focused his attentions on recording a batch of songs that reflected on his suburban upbringing outside of Dallas and what he calls the "failed connections with nature" that exist in these suburban zones (fake lighting, cranked-up air conditioning, golf courses, and gated "communities" where everyone keeps to themselves). But despite the loneliness and melancholic themes there is a remarkable amount of color to his music. Like its the sound of what hed want to have playing on his headphones while riding a bike thru these neighborhoods -- the sound necessary to make these places seem lively and fun. Music blog Visitation Rites hits the nail on the head when saying "his music reflects a parallel fixation with the tape reel as a cutting board for the psychic trappings of middle class American youth." Rangers is drawing from an entirely different set of musical influences than the rest of his peers - combining a passion for Manchesters Northern Soul sound with early 80s rock radio staples like Rush and The Police and the 70s prog-fusion of Weather Report. Plus hes got the chops to pull off this unlikely union -- in fact the cutting engineer for "Suburban Tours" was utterly baffled and commented that it sounded to him like a lost Steely Dan session recorded onto a mangled microcassette tape. Thats a good thing, right? Full color pro-printed covers and insert - also includes a download coupon for the mp3 version." - OESB.

Artist: REBEL, THE
Title: Northern Rocks Bear Weird Vegetable
Format: LP
Label: Sacred Bones
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"Sacred Bones Records presents Northern Rocks Bear Weird Vegetable—the next full-length from London, Englands The Rebel. The alter ego of Country Teasers Ben Wallers, The Rebel dates back to the tail-end of the 80s—having existed side-by-side throughout the Teasers prolific career—often releasing records at a steadier clip than Wallers main project with songs too madcap to fit into even their William- Burroughs-by-way-of-The-Residents take on country music. Wallers characteristic self-aware irony and surreal gender/race ruminations are still present but sitting backseat in this more fleshed out concept album about decaying conditions on the planet 3ar7h. Although Burroughs comparisons are inevitable, Northern Rocks Bear Weird Vegetable could only have been scripted by The Rebel. The albums narrator is in a band, has a valet named Mulholland, but inhabits an otherwise unrecognizable dystopian landscape where evil science laboratories combat college radio personalities, and nuclear war with Iran is well underway. Important issues of today and tomorrow are touched on. In “Why Must I Pay?” Mr. Thatcher, a future Prime Minister, is excoriated for the rising costs of tea, rent, drugs and sex. In “Scarlett Johansen Conceiving the Design” we are shown a horrific world in which starlets replace scientists as consumerdoms inventors. In “Youre Just Like Tammy Wynette” the Radical Islam Problem is diagnosed by looking at the politics of ladies headgear, while in “Turtle v. Octopus” a battle between Lovecraftian ancient adversaries plays out, potentially affecting the future of Music itself. This is the first Rebel album to be recorded in the studio with a live backing band...that band being Country Teasers. In terms of sound, Northern Rocks Bears Weird Vegetable exchanges The Rebels clautrophobic home studio layers and d.i.y. effects for the improvisational band chemistry and controlled looseness of Country Teasers infamous live act." - Sacred Bones.

Artist: REIKO KUDO
Title: Rice Field Silently Riping In The Night
Format: CD
Label: Majikick / Periodic Document
Country: USA
Price: $9.50
"There are times when all the music your bruised psyche can take is the softest of whispers, the slightest of instrumental caresses. When an ounce too much pressure could make your veins cave inwards. At times like these, Reiko Kudos previous solo album ("Fire inside my hat", Org Records, 1997) has always been my balm of choice. A gauze-thin collection of songs with minimal piano accompaniment, sung in a voice half between a child and a deeply hesitant angel... For those who would rather trust a history lesson than their own senses, Reiko Omura, as she was known then, first came to light on the Tokyo underground in the late seventies and early eighties. She was part of the Minor circle (which also gave birth to Fushitsusha, High Rise, Kosokuya, Gaseneta and many others) of musical obsessives exploring new and highly personal collisions of noise, improv, rock. Reikos contribution was via groups like Worst Noise and Noise. The latters sole release, "Tenno", saw her trumpet and voice meeting the Bach-doom organ and drums of influential scenester Tori Kudo in a totally unique monument to no-wave noise depression. She later married Kudo, appearing occasionally with his avant-pop Christo-mystic idiot-savant group Maher Shalal Hash Baz, but releasing nothing under her own name until the Org disk in the late nineties. "Rice field..." sees Reiko revisiting the pattern of short songs mostly based around one-finger piano motifs, so structurally simple as to be virtually transparent. This time additional flashes of sensitive instrumental colour are added by husband Tori and various members of the Puka-Puka Brians on wavering backing vocals, violin, guitar, percussion, euphonium and percussion. The music treads a sure and private path between a perfect childlike naivete and the amateur aesthetic that has long been Toris goal (he has spent twenty years arriving at a point of psychedelic mastery where he sounds like he bought his first guitar yesterday). Reikos songs and vocals are the weakly pulsing centrepoint though. She sings of life, dying flowers, love, and nursing home residents with the unforced naturalness of a mother alone with her child, a bird in the forest, her pellucid melodies seemingly accidental. It is nothing short of heart-stoppingly gorgeous. And as an honest-to-god example of happiness glimpsed through the quotidian, artistic perfection all the more perfect for not being striven for, you couldnt wish for anything more. A perfect prescription for those moments of fragility when you doubt your own pulse." -Alan Cummings. "A short, sweet album of lilting beauty and disarming fragility. Essentially, Maher Shalal Hash Baz in everything but name, but from the feminine perspective of the very talented Reiko, wife of M.S.H.B. leader Tori Kudo. [JG]" - Other Music. A corelease between the Tokyo based label Majikick and the New York based Periodic Document.

Title: Violin Petal {Auden}/Whipped Secrets
Format: LP

Country: USA
Price: $10.50
"Rene Hell and Three Legged Race investigate the space where classically outsider musical forms begin to intersect with more popular ones. Taking cues from science fiction and early electronic / tape music and translating them through lens of minimal techno and the personal logic of bedroom recording; both creating something unclassifiable in its hybrid form. Rene Hells four part suite Violin Petal {Auden} follows his recent LP on Type with its distinct form of digital synthesis and future-concr®®te; cyclic music expanding and contracting throughout a cybernetic space. The confusion of communication, control source unknown. Signals crossed along a technological drift. Robert Beattys Three Legged Race presents a three part suite, Whipped Secrets. Investigating herein an application of early automatic synthesizer music manipulated into linear form based song structure. Developing softly, the first movement sounds like a loner folk recording from a distant future time; complete with vocals, staring sad eyed across an open expanse, contemplating the state of things. Slowly, this form unravels into a more abstract and automatic based territory; rhythmic and melodic staccato signals possessed with an almost intelligent logic of their own. Communication shifts from the man to his machine. In an edition of 400 copies with glossy jackets featuring images by each artist and printed inner sleeves and center labels designed by Jeff Witscher." - Arbor

A refreshing lost artifact of pure American fizz resurrected from the iconoclasm void and perfectly reissued in a joint effort from De Stijl and Child Of Microtones. An essential LP for anyone concerned with the paramount energy fields of all the above ground sound subterrains." - Destijl. Highly recommended!

Title: Mineral Orange
Format: LP
Label: KYE
Country: USA
Price: $11.50
"Vanessa Rossetto is a composer and painter living in Austin, Texas. She uses primarily chamber instrumentation, field recordings, electronics and a wide array of different objects, exploring them through extended and traditional techniques. In 2008, she launched her own CD-R label, Music Appreciation, and through this imprint has released four solo albums: Misafridal, Imperial Brick, Whoreson in the Wilderness and the award-winning Dogs in English Porcelain. Her most recent release, the PDD-NOS (Period Tapes) cassette was described by Byron Coley in The Wire as sounding like being under attack from slow-moving dune worms. Mineral Orange presents four new works, each showcasing Vanessas deep commitment to abstract sound situations. These pieces exist as precision-edited travelogs of Vanessas questing. Local sounds, audio verite and overlayed string interludes are scrambled into surreal matrices of time, place and event. Mineral Orange was recorded and produced in Austin, Texas in 2010, with additional production by Steven Flato and mastering by Jason Lescalleet at Glistening Labs, ME. Mineral Orange arrives in an elegant Rossetto-designed sleeve, in a hand-numbered edition of 300 copies." - KYE.

"This album has been made entirely from samples taken from the Midnight Crossroads Tape Recorder Blues album, which I made with Ralf Wehowsky for A Bruit Secret. Like that album it is a tribute to the spirit of the blues, viewed through a prism of 21st century cultural criticism. It evokes an earlier era when the relationship between a performer and a song arose out of a community, not a property relation.. In appropriating my own material I have short-circuited the prevailing ethos of piracy and bricolage, and returned in a sense, to my self. Despite being made in New Zealand, and using some recordings from the Rhineland, the two places that are really central to this album are the Mississippi Delta and the island of Jamaica. - Bruce Russell (Dead C)." - Rococo.

Artist: RV PAINTINGS
Title: Samoa Highway
Format: LP
Label: Helen Scarsdale Agency
Country: USA
Price: $10.75
"RV Paintings were born in California. Humboldt County, to be exact. It is nearly impossible to imagine their origins being elsewhere since the brothers Brian and Jon Pyle, who currently pilot RV Paintings, constantly mine the metaphysical properties of their homeland through a heavy-lidded psychedelia. The redwood trees that majestically rise from the rugged terrain may have been one of the endemic objects that inspired RV Paintings to "jam nature;" but Humboldt Countys other major cash crop -- marijuana -- cannot be far behind. As much as the Pyle brothers channel a psychotropic animism through sound, their diaphanous drones and foggy ambient tangles spring from a schematic intelligence that belies any method acting of getting stoned and jamming in a room. Samoa Highway is the second full album for RV Paintings, following the nature jam transmissions of Trinity Rivers published by Root Strata in 2007 and a well-suited split LP with Taiga Remains from Blackest Rainbow. Just as the debut payed homage to the rugged river system that cuts through forests and mountains of the region, Samoa Highway refers to the lengthy bridge that runs between two coastal communities in Humboldt County, one of which houses a municipal airport. A swarm of drone guitars announces the opening of the record on "Millions," with a shoegaze wash collapsing into rarified tone purity and bulging through a metallic buzz. Field recordings of airplane take-off and firework explosions punctuate the undulating bleary smear of the Pyle brothers guitars. The result is one of levitation, even as RV Paintings seem to be plugging their guitars and electronics directly into the moss, soil, and mycelia of the Humboldt forest. Echo-soaked flutes, maudlin strings, scabrous noises unearthed from the bottom of the Pacific, and a cinematic arcs of guitar shimmer complete the beautiful and haunted miasma of Samoa Highway that falls somewhere between Taj Mahal Travellers, Organum, and The Caretaker. Brian Pyle may be best known as one of the founders of the Starving Weirdos and records his solo work as Ensemble Economique. Samoa Highway stands the first piece of vinyl published by Helen Scarsdale Agency and includes a code for a digital download. Pressed in an edition of 500 copies." -Helen Scarsdale Agency.

"Finally! After Auchmithie Forevers treasures were unleashed last year, now here comes what youve all been waiting for: a complete reproduction of arguably THE best example of the pop side (or any side, really!) of the UK DIY post-punk era. Dundees Smeg, Burt, Sid & Stripey originally released Revelation themselves in handmade, ill-fitting covers in 1980, and thirty-one years later it still deserves to be filed alongside 14th Floor, Spiral Scratch, and The Medium is Tedium. With more hits on one single than most bands have across multiple albums, the five songs here perfectly encapsulate the excitement of the UK post-punk explosion from the perspective of a teenage record fanatic. From the raging proto-hardcore Radio Tay and the untouchable bedroom powerpop of "Helicopter Honeymoon", to the gloomy Night Train and the dreary pop classic "Pick the Cats Eyes Out", Revelation sounds almost like a clunky sampling of what was happening at the time but simultaeously outdoes the bands idols with its stripped-down purity and undeniably instant catchiness. Remastered and packaged in glossy glued sleeves, and including a repro of the orginal entertaining ditto-on-gold paper insert (complete with connect the dot games and Do the Scrote dance instructions), its worth the wait!

Since that time, the ensemble has quietly unleashed their psychedelic drift through a handful of live performances and a self-released CDr. Their self-titled debut LP presents four pieces of restrained beauty that encapsulates the Shackamaxon sound. The album begins with a side-long excursion where sparse organic textures become enveloped in cavernous layers of sound and perpetually fuzzed drones. It is a steady swell which builds to immense heights before fading into the expanse. Side two starts off with a brief introduction of fluttering tones, then diverges into an intricate passage of controlled feedback chatter and subtle reverberations. The album concludes with what sounds like a field recording from an alien rain forest, capturing strange creatures chirping and gurgling as the humidity drips from the canopy. ..beautiful cover art by Amy Borezo." - HP Cycle.

"180-gram vinyl LP edition of 510 in silkscreened jackets with art by Knickerbocker. A co-release with GD Stereo. When I first heard Tamio Shiraishi, I wanted to blow my eyes out. The opening burst of sheer overpowering SOUND of his sax on the "Our Lips Are Sealed" CD on Pure was all I needed to hear to know that I had to (a) get my hands on all his music, and (b) get a saxophone myself and have at it. Years later, here I am still trying, and there Shiraishi is cracking concrete and splitting bridges in half in New York City with his trusty horn. A follow up to the Fusetron one-sided 12", this 180 gram vinyl is a full length capturing two Summer concerts that Shiraishi and percussionist/artist/thinker/time traveler Sean Meehan put on every year in the Big Apple. I wasnt there, but Geoff Dugan was and recorded them for the rest of us poor saps. A third player should be given credit here, too, as the landscapes the duo chose for venues are just as much a part of the recording as the instruments played. The Manhattan Bridge and the municipal garage on 79th Street cradled, amplify, defy and deflect Shiraishi and Meehan. The passing traffic and trains make it a quartet. As for Meehan, I have no idea what hes doing. But its a damn fine thing whatever it is. Eat it up." - Marshall Avett, Old Gold. Highly Recommended!

Their past two full lengths, 2007s Through the Panama and 2010s City of Straw were obvious successful in this exploration, but Future Accidents really nails it in giving up the honest-to-god barebones goods.

"Rock is about danger, people. Sightings live shows sure as hell arent background music for a thrift-store fashion show. They bring the pain but good. Sightings second LP, Michigan Haters captures the sonic abandon that makes their performances such a liberating mindfuck. This Brooklyn by way of Motown trio pounds out an abrasive skronk that at first comes off as a pure denial. The primitivist, lurching rhythms, shuddery basslines and trebly guitar slashes seem conceived to prove that Sightings is more punk than you, and youre just not meant to understand. But then, wait a second. Youve been bruised, defeated, and suddenly youre floating in a river of psychedelic scree. Mark M. is yelping out some Lord of the Flies incantations. You cant pogo to it, but you can twitch all night. The violence of Michigan Haters flows in all directions; it destroys itself and the listener to reveal hidden conduits of sound, from the rubberized rumble of "Chili Dog" to the more bleached and angular "Guilty of Wrecking". Its a soundtrack for punching holes in walls and watching them bleed vital fluids. Sightings plays noise that hasnt been defused by aesthetic noodling; theyre not Sonic Youth and they dont want to be. Think DNA, Big Black, Keiji Haino if you have to think at all. Play it loud and watch the neighbors run for cover." - Psycho-o-Path. Remastered repress.

"Originally released on CD in 2002 by Psych-O-Path, Michigan Haters never got a proper vinyl release. So after years of Sightings and SS talking about doing a single, I finally said "Hey, Michigan Haters needs to be in vinyl. Let me do it!" The record being one of the bands favorites, they said "Certainly"...a combination of sounds which one reviewer likened to "a storm of knives." The overblown intensity was joined by abrasive twists and subtle unconventionalities. This is like listening to Terry Riley and Steve Reich though a Big Muff at 110 decibels. With Michigan Haters, Sightings started on what would become nearly a decade long reinvention of the rock & roll song." -S-S

"Sightings love Tom Smith and To Live & Shave in L.A. with a tad too much avidity. Tom Smith has a similar problem ®C he loves the fuck out of Sightings. They first worked together in 1999, when TS supervised Sightings recording sessions in NYC. Tom produced a full-length album for the group in 2000; featuring Andrew W.K. on keyboards, the project was unfortunately shelved. Guitarist Mark Morgan was to have joined TLASILA in 1999 (he finally made it through the gate in 2004, as did AWK), and was also erased from the line-up of Ohne prior to the launch of their 2002 European tour. (Nothing sinister, O sisters ®C jus pesky post 9/11 visa hassles.) The parties remained close, cordial. Flash forward to November 2003: Richard Hoffman, John Lockie, and the aforementioned Mr. Morgan convene with Mr. Smith at Sightings low-fi basement Brooklyn lair. TS records hours of material on his laptop, but levels are too high, the sound far too digital (i.e., retro). The best stuff emerges from Mr. Hoffmans four-track cassette recordings. Sightings cull their favorite tracks, and send mixes to Tom. TS tweaks everything for six months, and hands the package off to Rat Bastard (also of TLASILA) for mastering.

Monotonous motor humming via drugged-out machinery and assaults of feedback attacking with a strong feel of claustrophobia. Compared to Skkull, The Drone Drug evolves more around a grim and abrasive sound, constantly toying with lo-fi aesthetics and a rough industrial edge. The atmosphere created is thick and black, bringing up visions of a dystopian society trembling on the edge of the world. Spreading the disease in a world slowly dying, The Drone Drug is poison and affect you it will. On this recording, The Skull Defekts is Joachim Nordwall and Henrik Rylander. 4 tracks cut by an unsharpened razor. Total playtime of 52 minutes. 4-panel digipack with artwork by Daniel Fagerstr - Release The Bats

Severely mangled guitar gunk astral-projected from deep inside the twisted lobes of Lambsbreads Zac Davis. Unavoidable private press vibe, with mumbled cliffs edge moan & groan vocals, drums courtesy of the Corwood session-player circa "Electric End", and guitar rave-ups that share a tattered couch with The Index, Raven, Low End Lars, and Vulcan.

"The Skygreen Leopards are easily the most structured of any band in the Jewelled Antler stable of projects, which is not to say that improvisation figures heavily to their sound (oh, it does). What you get are loosely-structured psychedelic folk songs arranged with banjos, bouzoukis, 12 string guitars, tape loops, Hammond organ, and a host of other instruments. One Thousand Bird Ceremony is easily their most accomplished and fully realized album yet, and its the perfect soundtrack for the summertime.

"TIME TO GET TO KNOW THE SLUGFUCKERS….. The Slugfuckers were started in the late 1970s in Sydney, Australia by Terry Blake (vocals), John Laidler (guitar) and Graham Forsyth (bass) who were all at the time students or recent graduates of the Department of General Philosophy at Sydney University. Craig Wilcox (keyboard), Gordon Renouf (guitar, sax), Austin Laverty (drumkit) joined soon after. They released two extremely rare singles in 1979 which are combined on this 12" and an album in 1981. Bridging the nascence of punk, DIY, and industrial, The Slugfuckers took the true intent of punk and carried it to a logical extreme. With shouted vocals, almost rudimentary playing, volume on ten and many obligatory messy interludes they enthralled, engaged and repelled in equal parts…A raw, underproduced angry attack that bores right into your brain. "It will catch the ears of those who can embrace abstract punk sounds or industrial harshness. To be filed alongside The Homosexuals, The Desperate Bicycles, The Instant Automatons, The Prats, Door and the Window, The Versatile Newts, etc etc. Avant / Post -punk madness that leaves you scratching your skull . Noise historians will wonder over the use of Manson references, Burroughs samples and Anti-art manifestos way before the Industrial boys tried to claim them as their own." - Harbingersound.

The title track is plaintive, with songwriter and lead man Robert Robinsons vocals emerging organically from the analog distortion that coats the song.

Title: Lady Chatterly

Country: USA
Price: $4.25
"Back in 1986 a few guys got together in London-town in order to form a band. They ran an ad in the NME and found themselves a singer. They went through a couple drummers, played a bunch of gigs, released a few records, and called it quits. The band was forgotten by all but fans, friends, and a few music freaks. Fortunately, this band had some live footage that made it to the internet...and that live clip made tens of thousands of music fans say Guh-guh-guh-GAH! The band is the SPERM WAILS. While prominent in Englands Camden Noise-core Scene and having toured with the legendary My Bloody Valentine, the Wails sister band, the SW didnt get much of a listen outside of Merry Ol. Their three records (Boy Hairdresser 12", Carry-On 7", and Grim/Stroke flexi disc) were self-released and never got the run they deserved. And as far as I know, they never made their way off of Monkey Island. If you would have asked the S.S. Records brain trust about the Sperm Wails, you would have gotten a blank stare. That is until the Lady Chatterley surfaced. Propulsive punk rock with post-punk chops and one hell of an edge, Lady C. showed a band that could have held their own to any of the eras heavyweights (Big Black, UT, Sonic Youth, etc.). S.S. figured Gotta have record. Problem was finding it. Lady C. had been released but in short run as a freebie with some obscure fanzine. The song was crammed on the record with three tunes by others and that was not right! Former members of the band were tracked down and begged for the right to release Lady Chatterley in proper form, as the A-side of a 7". After much searching some Wails dug up an unreleased gem called Mr. Wonderful, a twisted piece of Fall-pop. And that we called the B-side. The Sperm Wails broke up in 1989. Members remained active in Londons music scene, playing in bands like SPECTREMAN and THE LONDON DIRTHOLD COMPANY. Currently, a couple former Sperm Wailers are playing in the band BLOWHOLE (not the free jazz band of the 1990s). 500 pressed."-S.S.

Artist: STACCATO DU MAL
Title: Sin Destino
Format: CD
Label: Wierd
Country: USA
Price: $7.25
"Wierd Records is proud to present the new LP by Staccato du Mal, entitled Sin Destino. Freezing out the heat-seeking Miami scene with his cold minimal synth for the past decade, Ramiro Jeancarlo (1/2 of the industrial outfit Opus Finis) offers up ten tracks of analogue darkness. Sung in both English and Spanish, the forthcoming album is informed by Jeancarlos half Chilean, half Venezuelan background. Pervasive throughout the LP is an aura of dread and claustrophobia that without a doubt evokes the hot, dry, lonely landscape of suburban South Florida. But beyond the dismal swamplands, its possible to detect the mournful ambiance of cultures plagued for centuries by colonization, civil war and political turmoil. Whether Jeancarlo means to offer "Salvation Through Suffering" as an alternative to everything from Catholicism to revolutions-turned-tyrannies is not explicit, but the distinctive mood of dread conjures something more monolithic than plain nihilism. Therein lies the fascinating duality: "Lost Image" could as easily land in a soundtrack to a film about a lonesome teen in desolate suburbia as it could a film about Pinochets Caravan of Death. Despite the disorienting feeling of so much of the album, Staccatos own coup d鴡t comes in the moments of resolution where warm melodies and nearly psychedelic soundscapes counter the bleakness. On “Desespero,” Jeancarlos pleas to “let me in, I want in” are frighteningly forward but made inviting against a danceable and very accessible synthpop background. The instrumental “En Sue񯳔 has a sweetly bright melody atop sinister beats that plumb the depths, while the synthesizers in “Happy Endings” happily climb into major dimensions as the signature darkness shines through. While this album could be described as Wierd Records least commercial release so far, Staccato du Mals music is rich with sonic feeling that makes for infinitely rewarding listening. Working within the confines of the minimal synth genre, Jeancarlo manages to include elements of pop, noise, and industrial that slink to the surface with each eerie listen." - Wierd.

Perfect Place to Hideway has sensual grooves not heard on their earlier work, cold, icy riffs, and an overwhelming tone of nihilism in the vocals, all masterfully put together to create a multi-dimensional, grand listening experience. From opener Subway, with Michio Kuriharas guitar lines weaving through eternal, repetitive grooves and Ishiharas controlled, unique vocals, this album ushers in a new era for the band. From the slashing guitar riffs to the impenetrable grooves laid out by the rhthym section, from the anarchic, bold arrangements to the dark lyricism, the unique album creates an overwhelming, cosmic listening experience."

Title: Up The Middle Down The Sides
Format: LP
Label: Fusetron
Country: USA
Price: $9.50
"After some twenty years in the wilderness when Storm Bugs were known only to a handful of aficionados, the DIY electronic duo were rediscovered in 2000 when they were included on the deliciously dodgy but possibly seminal bootleg LP I Hate the Pop Group. A CD of the Bugs finer moments followed shortly after on the reactivated Snatch Tapes label and prompted one receiver to comment "How could such sounds, radically challenging the accepted texture of electronic music, have been recorded over 20 years ago?" Another review suggested that.. "they were spiritual forefathers to Oval and todays Clicks & Cuts generation". Since 2001 Storm Bugs have featured on stations such as Resonance FM and WFMU and there have been more archive recordings by Philip Sanderson (one half of the duo) reissued by labels such as Anomalous and Die Stadt including collaborations with Organum main man David Jackman. There was even an EP of new material The Bugs are Back put out by Klanggalerie in 2002. Many have thought that there must be more vintage Storm Bugs recordings in the attic and after a 2 year period of intense rummaging and restoration Fusetron are pleased to present a further installment of Storm Bugs material from 1978-82 entitled Up the Middle Down the Sides. The LP delves deep into the Snatch Tapes sound banks to produced two continuous collaged sides of often-spontaneous sonic experimentation. Tracks such as Skid Pan Buoy and Thin Line Flash of Traffic use the classic Bugs DIY instrumentation of rewired radios, scratched vinyl and disemboweled guitars (Storm Bugs were circuit bending before the term was invented). Other pieces such as Little Bob Minor exploit the sonic capabilities of that most eccentric of British synthesizers the VCS3. But this is not simply a barrage of industrial mayhem for spliced into the fabric of controlled excess are moments of contemplative soundscapes such as 111 and Waspbottle, the latter scored for a duet of milk bottle and wasp synthesiser. In short Up the Middle Down the Sides is possibly the first (and last) DIY electronic concept LP." - Storm Bugs.

Title: Spitting Gold Zebras
Format: CD
Label: Bottrop-Boy
Country: Germany
Price: $14.50
"Sunroof! have done it again. Music steeped in clattering noise and rumbling drones prevail once more. The work of English sonic pioneer Matthew Bower remains unequalled. Meditative drones bathed in sunshine are swiftly exchanged with bursting volleys of noise. Sunroof! specialises in transparent, breathtaking concoctions of sound with some unexpected insights. Keyboards, guitars and electronics are submerged in Bowers transcendental whirlpool and the listener will want to dive in from the outset. Matthew Bower has a vision. He does not see sound as confrontation or provocation, but rather as a passage to another dimension. Under the name Sunroof! Bower paints layer upon layer of sound, subtle in their sublime and jubilant in their pure ecstasy, the resulting picture a peerless panorama – a tableau where light touches of water colour are mixed with dark smudges, black as coal. Spitting Gold Zebras is Sunroof!s latest update on its state of affairs. Bower gets heroic support from guitarists Marc Orleans (Sunburned Hand Of The Man) and Mick Flower (Vibracathedral Orchestra) and violinist C. Spencer Yeh (Burning Star Core). Like the true shaman that he is, Bower reroutes and transforms all incoming sounds. Sunroof!s renewed interest in unbridled, screeching noise is immediately evident. These clamorous visions of sound previously featured unrestrained in Bowers work on records with bands such as Hototogisu and the resurrected Skullflower. The uncompromising end of Spitting Gold Zebras is an ourobouros of annihilating noise; a hungry snake, continually gnawing at its tail which eventually swallows all of the surrounding sounds. Again, Sunroof! challenges the faithful, who are left staring in the sun, ascending higher and higher towards Bowers golden sound at the end of the rainbow. Spitting Cold Zebras is packed in beautiful new envelope packaging designed and handprinted by Jason Dodge & Christine Roland." -Bottrop-Boy.

Country: Sweden
Price: $15.75
"Last year saw the danish/swedish duo heading over the pond. They rented a car and got a not very detailed road atlas. Learned that public payphones are some quarter eating pieces of shit. And That cheap $7 chinatown voltage converter turned out to be a total rip off. They fried their power strip during soundcheck at the first gig in Nashville. An overwhelmed Klyd Watkins was in the audience, and the poet was later reported being "lost for words" when taking off into the night. So what about the music?? People whove seen them play have mentioned Patty Waters, Linda Sharrock, Brother Ahh, Strange Strings etc as reference points for the drooling gawkers. It sure is recalling the homeburned jazz sounds of the past. They play French horn, Flutes and saxophonic vocals over soothing harplike tidal waves. Where The Last Vocalions is the perfect late night/early morning nod out spin, the next album will be the wake up call. We for long thought this was the record that wasnt supposed to happen. The stampers broke a handfull of times, then later the pressing plant sufferd from a power blackout after a storm etc. It was planned for their US tour September 06. Now its a new year and here we finally have it." - Jacques Smoi, Lyon France. JAKOB OLAUSSONs (Destijl) new project and self released LP.

"Cream, Traveling Wilburys, Humble Pie, Susi-Unto... all supergroups have their stories to tell. Jussi Lehtisalo (Circle, R䴴 Lehtisalo, Pharaoh Overlord, Steel Mammoth etc.) got to know Janne M䫩-Turja and Raine Liimakka - the elastic rhythm section of Can Can Heads and Valse Triste - a couple of decades ago, but it is only now with Susi-Unto that they have ended up making music together in the same band. The original idea for the trio was to play some punk but the end product is something far more rough and multi-faceted. Puheluja pime䬴䠰uolelta was recorded during one intensive weekend. The album is harsh on the surface and frayed at the edges, but may contain traces of surprising sensitivity - crushing brutality meeting tranquil vocal melodies, the beauty meeting the beast. Puheluja pime䬴䠰uolelta is only available on 12" vinyl. Susi-Unto has plans to record some more music before the end of the year.

"This Is The Truth" quite possibly stands as one of the most original and perfectly balanced noise compositions of the last 10 years. It references and uses classic Sutcliffe Jugend of old while bringing in an entirely unique and fresh element one does not hear in noise. This album is a brilliant blend of foreboding tension, and anxiety while using the most lively, disturbing, and textural elements of noise. All of which are brought together with the phenomenal detail and balance of an accomplished electronic composer. Songs that you think will explode leave you hanging with tension, while others erupt with violence out of nowhere. Its an absolutely brilliant album that was worth the wait."

"Ikuro Takahashi might be a familiar name to some for his role as drummer/percussionist with many of the most notable Japanese underground acts of the past 25 years (High Rise, Kosokuya, Fushitsusha, Maher Shalal Hash Baz, LSD March to name but a few). On Domori to Sanshu he presents another look into his long running work with electronics. The two tracks on the CD consist of a live performance for oscillators and percussion followed by a computer composition in which Takahashi uses techniques of layering, looping and stretching sources to create immersive fields of sound. The live piece adds some space defining percussion for a brief temporal anchor before enveloping you once again in the high end chatter of up to 100 tiny oscillators. The computer piece by contrast offers no such reference points, instead leaving the listener submerged in a low end organic rumble that manages by turns to be both soothing and disorienting. The first edition of this CD is limited to 250 copies and comes in a painted and screenprinted wooden slipcase with screenprinted inner sleeve." - Siwa.

"A Turkish Leprechaun by birth, with a childhood fully immersed in music and art, Jem Targal first made his mark as vocalist/bassist/main songwriter for Detroit power-trio legends THIRD POWER (their lone Vanguard album from 1969 still rightfully well-regarded today). After the band split in 1972, a despondent Jem took up home recording, laying down hours of tape on a Teac 4-track machine. Jem selected the best cuts from these solo sessions in 1978 and released 쌵ckey Guyasting the gatefold covers and handling all sales himself in true DIY fashion. The album never stays still with one style for too long, but rather drifts along with spaced-out guitar (Bumble Bee Drive), tortured, dissonant piano (Ring Out The Bells), culminating in a sparse, apocalyptic tale (The Bomb Tune), with bits of childlike whimsy and Jems eerie harmonies woven throughout, not to mention a few musical touches that indicate its mid-1970s vintage. Were we to shamelessly namedrop, we might mention Syd Barrett, Skip Spence, Brian Wilson and Gary Wilson as starting points... But were above that, for its the first ever appearance on compact disc of this odd and eclectic bit of loner folk/psych. The label tracked down the master-tapes, miraculously still in storage at the original pressing plant, and created a mini-LP sleeve replica of the original album jacket, that includes an insert booklet with liner notes and newly-transcribed lyrics handwritten by Jem himself.

"The debut LP from the trio of: Karla Borecky, Graham Lambkin, and Scott Foust, recorded and assembled over 8 months between 1999 and 2000. Tart is an exquisite combination of three distinct minds, much like the skillful structure of diverse, yet subtle, ingredients in a piquant and nostalgic recipe: The Past as well as The Future. Tart blends together these strange elements in an organic yet totally disciplined style that renders many of their contemporaries as either flabby or boring. Radio Orange presents 7 original pieces of expertly edited new music-form. From the opening tape-collage miniatures, The Rabbits of Mangtarau (pts 1 & 2), through to the indeterminacy and excitement of the closing title-track, Radio Orange carves its identity through great use of diversified expression. The analog drone / vox duet: Astride Such Delicate Pins; the bizarre environmental action, Woman In Her Womb; the fragile tone composite, The Mums; and the grinding electronic surge of (the almost 20 minute) Chopin in a Shell all help complete the program in classic style. The overall sound is both hypnotic and explosive, with each side being carefully sequenced to maximize the fact. Radio Orange comes complete with a beautiful full-color sleeve, designed by Karla, and contrasting monotone labels by Graham. The super-modernist avant garde continues to raise its aesthetic head under the romantic banner of the Anti-Naturals. Tart is fabulous." - Swill Radio.

As it looms, it showers upon us the debris of its newest and most ragged disharmonies to stimulate our malignant activities and applaud the constant awakening of our intangible reality.

Price: $16.50
"The project name for a one-off collaboration between Cans bass player Holger Czukay and the painter Rolf Dammers. Canaxis 5 (1969) was an early attempt at manipulating ethnic music (World music), in many ways predating the discreet background music of certain ambient Brian Eno albums. The album was made using tape loops from traditional Vietnamese music to create some kind of acoustic sound painting. The result was a strange sound milage. It contained only two tracks: "Boat-Woman-Song" and "Canaxis". Few ordinary instruments were in use, only Holgers bass can be heard occasionally. Nowadays, this album is nothing more than a curiosity, documenting the ambient music in its early childhood. Czukays tape editing skills steadily improved through the years - as proved by the mid-period Can albums and even more so on his solo albums." - Mutantsounds. "One of the earliest and rarest Krautrock albums ever, this was recorded in 1968 by Holger Czukay of CAN fame, and released the next year on the tiny Music Factory label in a pressing of only 500 copies.

Teenage Boatpeople are a Minneapolis based Avant-Garde Rock band founded in 1979 by Jeff Johnson. The band played a short run of gigs 1980-81 at local venues including First Avenues Main Room and 7th St. Entry, the New Riverside Cafe, and the legendary Longhorn (Zoogies), sharing the bill with the likes of DNA, Husker Du, Naked Raygun, the Milo Fine Free Jazz Ensemble, and the Suburbs. The music the band created in 1979/80 was unique and difficult to categorize for the Minneapolis scene at the time. With the lack of local support the group disbanded in late 1981. The bands current line up retains two core members -- Jeff Johnson and Milo Fine -- and adds new member Tim Mauseth (Rocking Pinecones, Safety Last).

Country: France
Price: $16.25
"Infinite Suns begins a new era of change in the Telescopes music field. This LP is very much number one, the introduction to a serie of release (2 new albums and one live recording). Out on the french label Textile Rds. This new LP is a selection of analogue tape recordings taken between 2006 and 2007, using a multi directional mic to capture environmental response. Recording levels were set close to saturation, allowing for interaction with the tape machine itself. Side one closes with a piece centered around a lock-groove from the run-out of The Telescopes first album and is lock-grooved again to play endlessly. The recording took place in a room used by a deep trance medium to hold investigative seances. The album ends with The Telescopes channelling out on each others instruments. The sound of earthquakes dreaming, where black holes reveal infinite suns. The Telescopes have been mining a unique anti myopian seam of drone/dream psych for 20 years. Expertly bolting gritty blocks of noise, rich with fossil and sediment, onto minimal songs and melodies which are miles apart and miles beyond the reams of drone/ambience out there. In 2006 The Telescopes became a collaboration between Bridget Hayden and founder member Stephen Lawrie. Bridget was an original member of Vibracathedral Orchestra. The two met briefly when The Telescopes and VCO shared the bill at Audioscope festival in 2004, where The Telescopes finished their set by drilling through gtr pickups. Following a narrow escape from a burning wreck on their UK tour in 2005, The Telescopes 5th line up disintegrated. And In 2006 Bridget left VCO to explore new ventures. Bridget had already been working with Stephen on the Dream Frequencies artwork for The Telescopes Antenna label. Both were shocked by the intensity of their first session together. As a volcanic two piece scythe spent 2006 spreading free noise around England, Scotland, Ireland, The Canary Islands, West Coast of America, Italy and Austria,recording all the time. Their first release for the Trensmat label sold out within an hour. Their second release for the label sold out a month in advance. Copies of the releases have been known to exchange hands for over 25 pounds. Together they harness a primeval drone, rich in texture, and build it beautifully in unison with soaring feedback, guitar manipulation & viola which forever spiral outward, fractal and hypnotic - a bed of noise percolating at the edges of audition." -Textile

"Tokyos Tenniscoats centre around the duo of Saya and Taskashi Ueno, a married couple who have been making music since 2000, and together run the highly regarded Japanese label Majikick Records. In that time, Tenniscoats have released three studio recordings, 2001s Theme Of Tenniscoats, 2002s The Ending Theme and 2004s We Are Everyone. Although each of those records is a fine, fine work, many Tenniscoats fans say that the bands meditative intensity has never quite been captured in the studio. It is for this reason that Chapter Music is releasing a compilation of their live work. Live Wanderus (named in Sayas imaginative English to reflect the words Wander, Wonder, Wondrous and Us) presents songs from each Tenniscoats release in distinctive new forms, as well as a number of previously unreleased tracks. It presents the band in its many shifting lineups, and includes collaborations with members of revered Japanese bands Acid Mothers Temple, Stars and Maher Shalal Hash Baz. Tenniscoats are a combination of hummable melody and a kind of innocent darkness, their unashamed fragility set against a restrained power that at times can explode into a psychedelic free-for-all." - Chapter Music.

"Terrestrial Tones is the home recorded project of roommates Dave Portner (Avey Tare of Animal Collective) and Eric Copeland of Black Dice, published by an emerging label in the underground noise scene, Psych-o-Path records. Blasted, their debut record combines a creepy parade of burlesque musicalia with the underwater travels of a submarine 20,000 leagues under the sea. Deep almost unrecognizable vocals hidden in layers of sub-bass warbles are reminiscent of work on the Charhizma Label, particularly Christof Kurzmann and his collaborations with Dafeldecker and dieb13. Likewise there are nods to the diverse almost pop-twitch of Dat Politics and the polyrhythmic patterns of the Basic Channel/Chain Reaction projects. Its a dance music record (microtonal future extremely abstract dance) for people who like to wiggle to shoes tumbling in washing machines with monkey cymbals and puppet shows. It is serious yet unpretentious, even whimsical, and will appeal to fans of experimental electronics, IDM, Throbbing Gristle and related, the drones and squeals of Black Dice and the nouveau pop psychedelia of Animal Collective." - Psych-o-Path.

Artist: THESE WONDERFUL EVILS
Title: Parade Room
Format: LP
Label: Sparrows & Wires
Country: USA
Price: $12.50
"Unassuming and cathartic, the music of Chicagos Zak Boerger coils and swells in elliptical rings. His debut under the moniker These Wonderful Evils, Regine Flory, established this abstruse approach to songwriting. It meandered in the realm of lo-fi psychedelia akin to the 90s experimental New Zealand scene, but it never quite could find a foothold of distinction. Parade Room however does just that. Boerger whittles a small niche all his own out of the vast trunk of bedroom psych-rock, and its a quite stirring slow burn of a record. Parade Room, Boergers sophomore effort as These Wonderful Evils, is almost a benign noise record, unrushed in the execution and more focused on the atypical melding of styles than the urgency of a message. Each layer of guitar tone feels meticulously appointed: just the right degree of fuzz atop the resonant tremolo of a softly wavering electric guitar atop lapping undulations of a warmly strummed acoustic. Each song is a splattering of melancholy with just enough direction to keep it moving forward, though without a particular destination. With the addition of infrequent harmonica and vocals ®§ la a mumbling Lou Reed, it culminates in a steady rippling of melodic noise that cascades on your emotions, like Richard Youngs re-imagining the Laughing Stock-era Talk Talk sessions. The album is separated into two parts: the first five tracks that drift in and out of song-based structures and the nearly twenty minutes of temperate guitar-psych that make up °∞The Light Pours Out of D.C.°± Boergers talent isnt in his ability to shred for hours on end or annihilate your floor speakers with devastating outbursts of feedback; in fact, most of the album feels about a step slower and quieter than you are most likely accustomed to hearing in this genre, especially the epic closer. This intuitively captures the listeners attention as it mildly confuses the ears, and the subsequent concentration is rewarded with layers of sound to decipher. Much in the same manner of an early Stooges song or the Spacemen 3 oeuvre, the dragging pace doesnt inhibit the energy; it adds a palpable heaviness. Boergers guitar playing feels more in debt to the late-60s British folk artists or the Takoma camp rather than any particular guitar virtuoso in the field of heavy electric psych, even though the final product sounds otherwise. And this patient twang, laced with odd-tempo trills and roundabout improvisation, gives Parade Room a more comforting folksy vibe despite the habitual use of distortion. Boergers music saunters, but it does so with a hair-raising effect. It will leave you tingling at the most frayed ends of your most sensitive nerves, a feeling at the core of psychedelias definition." -Michael Ardaiolo (Dusted)

Title: Ten Fingers for Forefathers
Format: LP
Label: Black Dirt
Country: USA
Price: $14.50
"Odd serially-inflected compositions for classical guitar. A wide breadth of obscure and fragmented influences represented here, all internal. Carter Thornton of Izititiz and Zakashi-Warashi." -S@1. "If you are a fan of the archaic format of music storage and delivery known as vinyl then you are also probably experienced in the art of search and rescue when faced with a pre-auction era, dusty, moldy shop filled to the rafters with such blasts from the past. Every now and then one comes upon a platter in one of these fading outposts, marked at about $3.99. Cover seams split, maybe some radio call letters scrawled in marker, maybe a booze-coffee-bongwater spill splayed like a Rorschach on the back. Perhaps it is the cover art itself that draws your attention black and white photos seemingly from another time in content and message. Or perhaps it is the title of the albumthe way it rolls off the tongue, its playfulness marked by a seemingly obscure reference. The fact that there are no song titles may pique your interest why is this? Are there even songs on there? You can see the gaps in the grooves so there is some sound being broken up with seconds of silence. You wipe the grime off the grooves with your shirtsleeve and take the disc over to the crappy player up by the register. You pop it on, slip the needle in the groove, and immediately you have the thought What the hell is this?!?!? Youre hearing one of those rare recordings of a singular and personal vision. A solo guitar performance that not only operates outside any current or previous fashions, but one that seems to render the idea of recorded music as commerce a nonreality. Although you are carried away with delight by the sounds you are hearing, you cant help but wonder why this person recorded this music. His intent is as elusive as the music he is presenting. It seems as though you are there with the player, this audio mirage helped by sounds of his chair creaking, his arm brushing against the side of his instrument, his fingers scraping across the strings. You purchase the item straightaway, as determined to figure out the history of the recording as you are to wear out its grooves with repeated listenings. With Ten Fingers for Forefathers the proverbial chase has been cut right to. Take a listen and see if you can crack the sonic code contained therein. Edition of 500 Recorded at Black Dirt Studio"- Black Dirt. Black Dirt is the new in-house label from Jason Meaghers (NNCK, K Salvatore, Coach Fingers, D Charles Speer and the Helix, etc...)

Artist: THOSE ATTRACTIVE MAGNETS
Title: Electromagnetic Pulse
Format: LP
Label: Dark Entries
Country: USA
Price: $14.50
"Those Attractive Magnets were created early 1980 in a town called Tamworth, the heart of the English Midlands, as a vehicle for Rikk Quay (keyboards) and Andy Baldwin (vocals). They self-released a super limited cassette EP, Pictures on the Wall in 1980 and the Nightlife/Love Chimes 7? in 1983 and appeared on a Futurist music compilation LP, Synthetic Romance in 1982. Their music travels beyond copycat synthpop bands of the time into electronic realms of the 80s underground scene. There are some obvious parallels of the time you can hear the commercial strains of The Human League, Soft Cell and Kraftwerk at times but the band never wholly embraced commercialism as these tracks reveal. Although their sound takes a cue from the post-punk and early new romantic scenes, it still remains one step ahead in a unique futuristic world full of delicious dance beats! Electromagnetic Pulse is the first ever compilation of a number of tapes Those Attractive Magnets produced during their three creative and prolific years of song writing, 1980-1983. This LP contains remastered versions of both songs from the 7? as well as 2 songs from the cassette EP and a different version of the song that appeared on Synthetic Romance; 9 songs in total, 7 of which have never appeared on vinyl until now! Limited to 500 hand-numbered copies with an 1117 poster/insert of lyrics, photos and liner notes by Sam Holliday." - Dark Entries

Artist: THREE FORKS
Title: Seven Layer Ape
Format: CD
Label: United Fairy Moons
Country: New Zealand
Price: $10.50
"This collection of 2002-04 recordings by the recently deceased Dunedin trio Three Forks is the first widely available disc to feature guitarist Donald McPherson since 2001s solo effort Bramble (metonymic), praised for its originality and McPhersons obvious mastery of guitar picking, His longstanding weekend duo with Sandoz Lab Technician Tim Cornelius was expanded early in 2002 to include James Currin, and although they didnt play out for over a year they setttled down to regular jamming and recording, initially concentrating on shortish improv power-trio jams, on guitar, drums and cello respectively. This first phase is represented here by two tracks, Ums and Ahs and Peru, with McPherson way out front on electric guitar, his extraordinary improvising imagination leading the group down a line somewhere between rock and a giddy free-jazz cuckoo-fest. By the time of their first shows in 2003, the balance had spread out with Currin and Cornelius contributing on a wide variety of instuments, and McPherson mainly on acoustic. In this year they recorded Baby Ives, released as one half (with Eye) of a lathe-cut 10", which veered wildly in mood between the hideous and the gorgeous, with vocals, radio and drum machine used in addition to the acoustic arsenal - it was a pointer towards the strange, rickety beast that is represented on the 03/04 recordings here. The opener Dust Tea is a quiet beauty, simple violin and cello framing McPhersons entrancing home-made-guitar plucks. Otaru Vision and Trimming The Verge drone and saw, playing elevation against irritation with strong noise elements, while Page 99 and Drunken Traffic achieve a level of melodic layering that is extraordinary for a purely improvising group. The last in particular, a complete 15-minute jam recorded live at Dunedins Community Gallery, points out where this groups head was at when they were at their best - a near-wallowing in melodic intensities that never caramelizes, and never, ever heads in the direction you expect it to. Indeed like this track, almost every track on Seven Layer Ape is a complete, unedited, un-fucked-with performance (only Otaru Vision is an excerpt) with just their fronts and ends tidied up; and while the Community Gallery recording is a little cavernous, replete with the sounds of car alarms, engines, and passing late-night-shoppers, the rest of the disc features exceptionally clear and present sound, unusual in a band mining this area of the improv universe. James Robinson, who drew the cover art, is known NZ-wide for his massive, completely insane graphomaniac canvases, and each cover is handscreened and partially hand-painted by Currin and Cornelius. Were very happy to be able to present this bands work and in particular to present another side of Donald McPhersons world-class guitar playing. This label got its start with his Liquified lathe LP (a recording of a 2001 gig), and both Cornelius and Currin contributed to that record; and so it is that our first real CD release should be this impressive and singular album." - United Fairy Moons.

This album displays an obsessive sense of composition and an absolute mastery of harnessing chaos to create a solid masterpiece. Heavy electronic washes, multiple layers of feedback and shifting harmonics create a powerful wall of sound that at first seems overtly harsh, but repeated listenings reveal a hidden beauty and natural soothing effect. Fans of Growing shouldnt be disappointed, but to make the comparisons to them would be much too easy. Total Life stands on its own, and walks its own path." - Animal Disguise.

The formal constraints bring something out that tends towards some of the most unknown improvised noise proposals so see light in Michigan. Riggs is a brutal technician and theres not a guitar note to be heard and the chords--if you can callem that---- sound like machines self-inflicting tonal punches.

Title: S/T
Format: LP
Label: Skul
Country: USA
Price: $9.00
"This first release consists of two distinctly different sides recorded in 2001 at home on a tascam 4 track. The first is a group of somber acoustic ditties, while the second is a side long, low-fi noise exploration. What we endearingly refer to as "the quiet side" could be
understood as a further exploration of the classic singer-songwriter with their acoustic guitar strumming quietly in their room. The songs come off as raw and innocent. The voice is quiet, stark, forlorn and rambles freely. What we like to call "the loud side" works in a very similar way to the quiet side, in that it operates in a naive and raw manner, it is just that here the influence is more in the vein of early noise artists such as Throbbing Gristle. The sounds and instruments weave in and out, a pattern will arise and be followed out, only to be crossed by another and another and another. The sounds range from effected guitar to organ to bleeping electronic noises, to vocal shrieks to banging on the walls. Though the two sides are drastically different, both share an overall feeling or emotion. Edition of 300, handmade covers."- Skul.

"Here on the second Tuck Tuck Tuck record, (which arrives with the helpful title "The Story of Tuck Tuck Tuck"), the previously separated qualities of noise (side b) and singer-songwriter (side a) of the first lp are here combined in a set of songs that contain singing, sounds, guitars and noises throughout. While all the songs from the first release were untitled, on the new record half of them have been named. Adrift in these new songs, named and unnamed, sparse acoustic guitar is coupled with erratically-timed slow and sad, somber and sleepy singing. Primitive electrical interruptions and constructions arrive to enliven and frighten the songs, as do some surprising electric guitar arrangements, noises and solos. While the songs that make up "The Story of Tuck, Tuck, Tuck" contain certain traditional elements, (melodies, lyrics, singing, strumming), they are perhaps more unpredictable and free in their neglect for traditional song structures than even the weirdest of the current crop of -out- sounding singer-songwriters. edition of 300/handmade covers." - Skul. "This oddball release of broken glass melodies at first seemed like a lost child, meandering endlessly toward nothing. But with each subsequent listen, each shard of glass seemed to fit into place, revealing something more majestic; some kind of beautiful, disjointed mosaic." - Foxy Digitalis. "...and the sound is as diffuse as the emotions. As in life, everything here can sound totally lost (even the instrumental bits). And that raises the human stakes to incredible heights at times when you didnt even know you were betting. The production is mammal-friendly too--a warm sound, like paper tearing in the next room, pervades everything. And it suits the words and the plucked guitar to a goddamn T." - Bull Tongue, Arthur.

"I cant say if it was ale, victuals or the tuneage, but once I got into the thick of this record my whole body began to tingle & my eyes got to sparklin. It reminded me of the scene w/Lawrence Olivier in Marathon Man when he sees them diamonds for the 1st time. I got to readin the inserts & seen one of the main brains on here was Dan Beckman whod also been on that Flak Mask 7" I liked. But he wasnt scratchin out the numbers 11201 on this lotto ticket. In fact, this is just about as opposite of that as they come. Sure its been recorded all over creation, but So Far On The Way breathes deep from the flora n fauna of southern Appalachia rather than the wheezeve urban twiddley-dum. Its corn pone jocularity conjurs up an aura of Doc Snocks hickum & Dans voice is similar enough w/Pete Stampfels to lend an air of friendly Holy Modal Rounders cheer onto the porch. Theys even got the gumption to croak out a haunting dirge-like interpretation of Sun Ras Outer Spaceways Incorporated (here entitled Outter Spaceways). And guess what? It dont suck! Addin this lp in w/the recent spate of great releases whats come out over the past few months, it nestles comfortably between Lord Fyres Destruction At 2013 & The Cherry Blossoms debut (which is gonna get harped on here soon). Id say this is a dinger for comers, be they shoeless or clueless. And how bout that paste on cover & hand stitched lyric book whats enclosed?.

"If you know the man behind United Waters (B.K.A Brian Sullivan) from anything, youll know him as the guitar thudder in Brooklyns densest duo, Mouthus. And if you were really listening to all those ninety million releases they did in the past few years, youd notice that Mr. Sullivan is a deconstructionist of the highest order. Molten riffs that would cream the face off of both Nocturno Culto and Dave Murray combined dismantled themselves to reveal rock as a gas and thin air to be nothing but a petrified turd left over in a backstage buffet platter by Michael Angelo Batio. On his debut release under the United Waters moniker entitled Your First Ever River, Sullivan continues to expose the contradiction of sound for what it is, but theres not so much discombobulated shrailing this time round to drive the point home. Brians vision on Your First Ever River sucks in the sound and vibe of mid-nineties basement dwellers, early seventies robe donning prog rockers and present day turtle necked Germans to continue his pursuit for the never knowing sound. Lets hope your there enough to bask in the revelatory glow of its sound." - Tony Rettman.

"Alitaju Ylimina" is the first vinyl album by Finlands Uton released in a strictly limited edition of 500 copies in a marvellous fold-out sleeve with a full-colour drawing by Uton himself on the outer sleeve and some fierce black&white illustrations by dutch artist Christelle Gualdi inside. Uton is the one-man project of Jani Hirvonen originally hailing from Tampere and currently travelling and recording in India. Hirvonen is one of the most active musicians of the Finnish underground scene that has recently presented us the likes of Kuupuu, Kemialliset Yst䶤t, Islaja, Paavoharju and Lau Nau and a seemingly never-ending stream of beautiful and highly original record releases. The music of Uton is no exception there, drawing inspirations from psychedelia to free jazz to pure ecstatic drones and noises using a wide range of acoustic instruments from various parts of the globe and a bulk of electronics. Recorded in glorious lo-fi the mystery of Hirvonens sound is difficult to pinpoint; sheer ravishing beauty, elegancy and variegation is stashed behind a wall of grey, inscrutable haze - gorgeous melodies and voices, reeds and alien sounds gleaming through the mist from time to time, shimmering like diamonds through layers of dust. Uton has previously released dozens of CDs, CD-Rs and Cassettes on a myriad of labels including Jewelled Antler, Pseudo Arcana, Last Visible Dog, Digitalis and his own Ikuisuus. He has collaborated with Amon Dude (Avarus), Anla Courtis (Reynols), Antony Milton (Black Boned Angel), Ben Reynolds, Peter Wright, Phil Todd (Ashtray Navigations) and Jan Anderzen (Tomutonttu, Kemialliset Yst䶤t) among others.

""Straight Edge XXS" is the 2nd vinyl album by Finlands Uton released in a strictly limited edition of 500 copies on the Dekorder label. It comes in a gorgeous full-colour collage sleeve assembled by Hirvonen himself. While Utons last Dekorder album "Alitaju Ylimina" (and most of his other recorded works respectively) are hazy lo-fi drone masterpieces for the most part, this is a completely diffferent affair. Recorded straight to tape within one month, right after returning from a 6-month trip to India, these songs (if you could call them songs) are completely out-of-this-world; very short and crazed sketch-like pieces sounding like a Nonesuch Explorer LP of long lost field recordings from an as yet unexplored continent. Or is it World Music from an unknown planet recorded by those Sublime Frequencies guys from mysterious short wave transmissions? Well, it is all that and more. It is pure ecstatic expression channelized through Psychedelia, Free Jazz, Noise and rural ancient Folk Music from all over the world in a completely naked, predominantly acoustic setting. One of the purest forms of music you could imagine; while all the familiar Uton elements remain evident in a hazy backcloth.

Title: Bay Area Retrograde (BART) Vol 1
Format: LP
Label: Dark Entries
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Bay Area Retrograde (BART) Volume 1 is Dark Entries first compilation of underground music from San Francisco (and the greater Bay Area) in the 1980s. Towards the end of the 70s, San Francisco experimental music clashed with the aftermath of punk and gave birth to a vibrant underground scene. By the early to mid 80s the DIY music scene of the Bay Area was a hotbed for experimental and quirky new wave, post punk, and synthpop, quite similar to New Yorks No Wave scene and Berlins Neue Deutsche Welle. This compilation literally connects the (transit) lines between these varied musical offerings and tells the secret story of eleven forgotten Bay Area bands and contains four previously unreleased tracks on vinyl, until now! BART Volume 1 features a Korg-heavy assault from Danvilles utterly obscure Nominal State; two little-known left-field electronic dance gems from Batang Frisco and Quiet Room; Berkeleys answer to darkwave, Necropolis of Love; a synth-driven drama fest from drag performance troupe Wasp Women; quirky lo-fi gothic pop from one man band Distant Thunder; a gay Hi-NRG anthem delivered by Danny Boy and the Serious Party Gods; two lesser know gems from SF synth legends Voice Farm and Los Microwaves; and the futuristic pulsing synth-punk of Standard of Living and the Units. All tracks have been carefully remastered by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. Each LP is housed in a large 6-panel fold out poster by with liner notes by Johnny Ray Huston, original photos, fliers and artwork documenting this fertile period. BART is more widely know as the acronym for Bay Area Rapid Transit, the main rail transportation system for the San Francisco Bay Area and the band on this compilation. This LP is by no means a definitive compilation but merely opens the tunnel to the underground sounds of the Bay!" - Dark Entries.

Price: $14.25
"Haswellediger presents FLESH RECORDS, a CD/Audio Exhibition with fifteen tracks from a new generation of artists excited by the intimacy of sound and its possibilities as a plastic art. The works, many of which were composed specifically for this project, range in shape and tone from Romantic to Pop to Cinematic and Sculptural/Body based. What they have in common is perhaps the idea that sound-art, with its lack of visual stimuli, connects us to an earlier time, both personally and collectively, when the body intuitively acted as artist, muse and medium.

Title: FM-BX Society Tape Vol. 1
Format: LP
Label: S-S
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"S.S. Records is pleased to present the first vinyl edition of the FM-BX Society Tape Vol. 1. Originally released in 1981 only on cassette, with a limited run of 200, FM-BX V1 was the first in a series of compilation tapes released by the staff of a radio station in Brussels, Belgium. Needless to say, not many tapes made it around, and very few survive today. Id say that is a shame but with this vinyl release, the word will get out about the bands on this tape, albeit a few decades after its initial release! FM-BX V1 features three bands, two from Belgium, one from Scotland. The Belgium bands are Isolation Ward and Unit 4. Isolation Ward are known in underground synth collector circles, as they had a bit of a run after their debut on this release. Bleak and futuristic, Isolation Ward fuse post punk with early 80s synth sounds and a DIY approach. The stars of FM-BX are the all-woman foursome Unit 4. Little is known about the band or their current whereabouts. No problem because their music is all you need to tell you that they had something special going. By their sound, the influences are obvious: Kleenex, Delta 5, and the Raincoats all reverberate here though less slick than any of those bands. Unit 4s aesthetics are more akin to the Petticoats and, at times, the Shaggs. This is truly wonderful punk rock. From Scotland comes the Topplers. Great stuff. Teens with an ear towards the TV Personalities, The Times, and Subway Sect. 500 pressed, housed in a sleeve cobbled together from the original cassette release." -S-S

Title: Lagos Disco Inferno
Format: Double LP
Label: Academy
Country: USA
Price: $17.50
"Welcome to the Lagos Disco Inferno, the first compilation of rare, Nigerian Disco to be released outside of Africa. Compiled by Frank Gossner (of Voodoofunk.com fame), this record contains 12 tracks that represent the sound of Lagos in the late 1970s. Dean Disi (Music Journalist and formerly Director of Lagos based label TYC Records) wrote the liner notes for this album: It was the era of sheer ecstasy. The music not only represents the vibrancy of youthful expressionism of the time but is also deeply rooted in African rhythm though not traditional in phraseology. This collection of songs marks the development of Nigerian urban pop culture. There was diametric difference in the music of the discos and the music play by the groups. Disco music as played by the DJs was essentially western. The fans could connect with this easily. It was hip, urban and stimulating. The young Nigerian groups were hooked on it and tried to play it but with a distinctive African stamp of their own. Some of the artists on this record were stars of their times while others remained in obscurity. Lagos, a uniquely vibrant, gritty, energetic and sometimes quite dangerous tropical metropolis has always been much more than just a city. A state of mind where third world poverty met the oil boom, where African traditions clashed with Western decadence. Make no mistake, this stuff will have you dance in a feverish rush in no time." - Academy.

Title: Learning for Insipid Zeal = Pool Water, People Pollution, Imaginary Unit In Electronics
Format: One Sided LP
Label: American Tapes
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Whoa! Hold on now! Heres the big one! All recorded in a one week in late April, heres the line up: Track One ) Pool Water: Super new heavy unit with Connelly, Zone One and Mega Mike Collino. Violin, kitchen percussion, slow tapes - every ingredient to make your pulse quicken/slow-en!!! The track sounds more akin to a Cook Labs recording of a train journey thru a snow covered mountain at midnight rather than three mug blokes in ultra concentrated jam mode.... Will make your skin stand at attention, soldier!! Recorded in Inzane-Dimension sound with the IZTF in full effect mode. Mad style: File Under: Misshapen Jam Growths. Track Two ) People Pollution: What the? Ultra distorted retardo basement rock trio with Juice & Raddix (AKA Raven Strain Matt and Fag Health AKA Sick Llama Heath) on guitar and bass and Inzane on plodding go nowhere drumming. Was meant to be a Justice-style garage unit turned Frankenstein- style into a twisted distorted Mega-mess! Recorded under the influence of afternoon sun, left over Milwaukee Beasts from the Aries Assault party, and the shadows of the dank interiors of the Frying Pan. WARNING! = worst guitar/bass tone on earth!! Would make Joe Young, Vorkriegphase, and Wretched sell they kitty littered amp speakers for opening a Baskin and Robins Franchise. Just a stinking rocking mess of a track!! More to come by this mutant unit! Name taken from a strange puzzle the puzzler master Tovah found in a rotten Lansing thrift store. Track Three ) Imaginary Unit in Electronics: Im sure yall are like "Why not just call the jam J?" Well, Im not quite sold on the concept of being that you cant take the square root of a negative, but you CAN call it a J and then next thing you know it has a value of 1 or-1. Huh? When rad Instructor Max got asked the question by a stunned Electrical Math class, he just looked down, counted his voltage, current, and resistance markers and said, "Well, thats a discussion for Carl Jung." Shit, lost me too. Like the button my crazed mom had (no ya turkey, not the OVERSEXED one) , = "Ninety Percent of Life is Just Showing Up." True. Soundtrack for confusion, included. So what the hell else for this heavy pack? How about a stupid-colorful overload hand painted collab jackets with artist Raymond Salvatore Harmon, painted in Automatic Writing Style. Why? Cause Tyfuss once told me "Zines and Collaborations keep the underground scene together and alive" You got it!!! Killer flow and strange new sounds will leave your day inzanity haunted with this new comp platter!!! Go nutzo young player. Edition of 100, numbered, hand done, THE WORKS." - American Tapes

The record itself is a document of how 18 different bands responded to the challenge of writing a 45 second song. The transitions between songs come so seamlessly that the piece stands as a massive effort by many musicians, rather than a series of individual tunes." - Macro-Eden.

"Hold on gnaw...last but not least..... the NO STATE NO SOUND comp lp. Dont know what led up to it...think I vaguely remember getting "dared" by Nurse Khrust to put out a record of silence by the crew, not sure, but maybe told Haunted Square D about it....but anyhow.....flashblack to an average but killer brewsday in the late summer, got the crew shooting the gip, no biggy, and Square D rolls up with his "Body Morph" one minute silent track....takes a sec to remember but all right...lets do this. Greh and V invite the now deep crew black to they hut, and on the way I had a walkman in the whip, so i popped in Ds master, hit record and the stop watch for a minute and me and the Connartist sat in silence for a minute and recorded the second track BIRTH REFUSAL. As we got to Grehs, we assembled all the jammers present and hit em up for a minute, all on three different Walkmans all on the original master tape. Was totally strange, Sick Llama was just standing in a yard with the crew looking at him pointing a recorder his way while nothing happened. It was like a very strange gig. So after everyone at the party got recorded/ trapped in NO SOUND, some the garage, some inside a bathroom whilst the crew stared at the close door, someone had the idea to call up some jammers. So No Fucker Johnny, Romero, others all held on the line for a minute of NOTHING. Totally rules. The end result sounds like a Folkways experiment. I ended up coming home and getting busted for "recording silence and not grabbing the Air Condition Win
