Artist: FABULOUS DIAMONDS
Title: S/T
Format: LP
Label: Siltbreeze
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"Adorably known to friends and family in Australia as JARROD and NISA, THE FABULOUS DIAMONDS beguiling truck is a mesmerizing mix of synth, dub, and percussion, woven around honey-ache vocal stylings recalling (in spirit) past Aussie noisemakers Scattered Order or Makers Of The Dead Travel Fast, as well as those of Augustus Pablo, Young Marble Giants, and Suicide. Their one previous release was a 7-inch co-released by Nervous Jerk and Misteltone, and it garnered praise from the Blogosphere and a smattering of airplay on discerning freeform radio stations around the US. This LP on Siltbreeze has been in the works for the better part of a year; its release coincides their first American tour (along with Siltbreeze labelmates, Psychedelic Horseshit)." -Siltbreeze

Artist: FACTUMS
Title: Flowers
Format: LP
Label: Sacred Bones
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"Flowers" is the latest full length from Seattles bleak and ominous Factums and is their second for the Sacred Bones label. Recorded between 2006 and 2007 but only now seeing a proper release, "Flowers" is dark and disturbing. The album has twenty two tracks that fluctuate from sound collage to soundtrack-esque moments as well as more structured songwriting. This album also has flashes of abrasive electropunk that has garnered them well-deserved comparisons to Chrome, Cabaret Voltaire, Throbbing Gristle and much of the early Wax Trax catalog." -Sacred Bones.

Artist: FACTUMS
Title: Spells and Charms
Format: CD
Label: Kill Shaman
Country: USA
Price: $9.00
"FACTUMS are a dark and brooding bunch of lads from Seattle and Chicago featuring ex-members of THE INTELLIGENCE and FRUIT BATS. They play crazy, weird glitched-out industrial punk rock. Seventeen fairly alien sounding tracks." - Kill Shaman. Previous LP on Siltbreeze.

Artist: FACTUMS
Title: The Sistrum
Format: LP
Label: Sacred Bones
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"Full-length follow-up to last years LP on the recently resurrected Sitlbreeze label from this band that vaguely circles in the A-Frames/Intelligence/Fruit Bats orbit. Critics have compared Factums to Tronics, Cabaret Voltaire, or Pere Ubus more chaotic moments also citing some heavy Kraut influenced flashes. "-Sacred Bones. Repressed without 7".

Artist: FAIL, JOHN W.
Title: The Icewhistle
Format: CDR
Label: Sharks & Pfennigs
Country: UK
Price: $5.75
John W. Fail has turned up in a lot of places but on few recordings; this is the first release entirely under his own name, following an 8-project cassette compilation on Dronedisco last year. Most well-known as 1/2 of Lied Music, The Icewhistle finds Fail quietly scraping ghost overtones from his israj (the traditional Bengali instrument heard on Lied Music recordings). In eight minimal tracks, the sounds of air and urban ambiance mix with the israj to create a haunting, suspended soliloquy." - Sharks & Pfennigs.

Artist: FAIL, JOHN W. & BEN REYNOLDS
Title: Uncabineted
Format: CDR
Label: Sharks & Pfennigs
Country: UK
Price: $5.75
"Ben Reynolds and John W. Fail collated several recordings to compile Uncabineted, covering the period between September 2005 (when they met) and March 2006. Reynolds work is well-documented on labels such as Ikuisuss, Memoirs of an Aesthete, Time-Lag and 267 Lattajjaa while Fail has dabbled in myriad projects including Lied Music, Intro to Pterodactyl and Land. Ranging from screaming acoustics to dirgy fuzzfests, the real document is that of experience, joy and camaraderie." - Sharks & Pfennigs.

Born 1951 in Tel Aviv, Israel and living in Sweden since 1973. "My music and words should function as a tool kits for an anti-fascist existence.

Title: K2-Chameleon Ballet
Format: LP
Label: Olde English Spelling Bee
Country: USA
Price: $12.25
"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. Remastered and expanded version of the CD-R release on New Age Discs -- this has an additional previously unreleased track. Limited edition of 425 copies. Black & white printed covers." -Olde English Spelling Bee

Artist: FERRARO, JAMES
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

Artist: FILLE QUI MOUSSE
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!

Label: Shih Shih Wu Ai
Country: USA
Price: $15.75
"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. Milo Fine: piano, drums, marimba/electronics, clarinet, clarinet/electronics, alto clarinet, bowed cymbals; Steve Gnitka: guitar; Scott Newell: tenor sax, wood flutes, "paper"; John OBrien: trumpet, flugelhorn; Elliot Fine: percussion; Jason Shapiro: piano, synthesizer.

"This CD could be seen as an indirect result of a phone call Milo Fine received from Davu Seru in 2000. Relatively new to improvised music, Davu was casting about for information and possible collaborative possibilities. 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. Milo Fine: piano, groan tube wheel, acme siren (upstairs), drum set, bowed cymbals, chimes (downstairs); Steve Gnitka: guitar; Andrew Lafkas: bass; Davu Seru: drum set (upstairs), percussion (downstairs).

Davu started working with free improvisation in 1998, and, in 2000, began his ongoing collaborations with Milo.

Title: S/T
Format: CD
Label: Soft Abuse
Country: USA
Price: $8.50
"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.

"Wirrals Forest Swords make a textured, gauzy music as indebted to the Liverpool regions rich musical heritage as it is to the bleak-yet-beautiful coastal environment from which it was born. The result is something completely organic, sounding like a dancehall mix of Mogwais more luscious soundscapes, Burials sample-strewn claustrophobia, and Ennio Morricones spaghetti western scores. The records sweaty and thunderous dub grooves and cavernous guitar licks rub shoulders with RnB shuffles, dread-soaked percussion, and heady drones to create a visceral and epic sound. "Dagger Paths" consists of specially remastered versions of songs from the out-of-print cassette singles Miarches and Glory Gongs, along with brand new tracks.

There are very few albums in the psych/punk/hard rock/private presses strata that garner the sort of universal awe and accolades that FRACTIONs almighty Moonblood LP does, and even fewer records in the world that could be dubbed Christian Rock incur such fierce devotion. Indeed some records just meteorically lift themselves out any genre tag with brilliance and sheer defiance-and Moonblood is surely one of them.

Artist: FRANCIS, RICHARD
Title: Three Tracks
Format: 3" CD
Label: 20 City
Country: New Zealand
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.

Artist: FRANK (JUST FRANK)
Title: The Brutal Wave
Format: CD
Label: Wierd
Country: USA
Price: $7.25
"Wierd Records proudly presents the debut album from Frank(just Frank) from Paris, France entitled The Brutal Wave. The Brutal Wave draws from many rich traditions of US and UK guitar driven wave, minimal synth, early black metal and new indie rock from Brooklyn respectively - layering lush washes of atmospheric anglophilic guitars above a warmly orchestral analogue synth and drum machine fueled minimal electronic backdrop. 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. Ŷ¶5Ŷ¶5The album presents a carefully crafted set of nine trax in which shiver-inducing swathes of guitars, restrained and mournful, battle alongside and often it seems directly against bitingly insistent vocals, that effortlessly switch between French and English. No lyrical themes are off limits for the apparently fearless young band, as the poetically flowing voice espouses tales ranging from provocatively centrist takes on international politics to vulnerably personal epics of heartbreak and addiction, and these tensions between right and left, darkness and light, and private versus public consistently replay themselves throughout the record, both in the lyrical content and the musical dynamics at work. This powerfully emotional record is made with simultaneous confrontation and restraint, as well as viscerally sensitized homemade DIY intimacy and feverishly swaggering aggression, and it is this balancing act and interplay of extremes that Frank(just Frank) harnesses to carve out The Brutal Wave!" - Wierd.

"Wierd Records proudly presents the debut album from Frank(just Frank) from Paris, France entitled The Brutal Wave. The Brutal Wave draws from many rich traditions of US and UK guitar driven wave, minimal synth, early black metal and new indie rock from Brooklyn respectively - layering lush washes of atmospheric anglophilic guitars above a warmly orchestral analogue synth and drum machine fueled minimal electronic backdrop. 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 La Vague Froide Moderne in 2010. The album presents a carefully crafted set of nine trax in which shiver-inducing swathes of guitars, restrained and mournful, battle alongside and often it seems directly against bitingly insistent vocals, that effortlessly switch between French and English. No lyrical themes are off limits for the apparently fearless young band, as the poetically flowing voice espouses tales ranging from provocatively centrist takes on international politics to vulnerably personal epics of heartbreak and addiction, and these tensions between right and left, darkness and light, and private versus public consistently replay themselves throughout the record, both in the lyrical content and the musical dynamics at work. This powerfully emotional record is made with simultaneous confrontation and restraint, as well as viscerally sensitized homemade DIY intimacy and feverishly swaggering aggression, and it is this balancing act and interplay of extremes that Frank(just Frank) harnesses to carve out The Brutal Wave!" -Wierd.

Title: Grey-Eyed Girls
Format: LP
Label: Woodsist
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"When Tim Cohen told Shayde Sartin he was writing a song called Be My Hooker, the Fresh & Onlys bassist looked at the singer/guitarist and said, Theres no way were gonna have a song with that title, dude, explains Sartin. 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.

"Twelve instrumental blasts recorded with a 4-tracker. Compared to earlier Pacchu releases this one has more complex song structures and detailed soundscapes. Imagine Nine Inch Nails making music for a video game about vikings and you might get the idea. Yes we know, the Quake soundtrack already excists, but Midnight Pyre is more sentimental." - Lal Lal Lal

Artist: FUCKIN FLYIN A-HEADS
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. Very highly recommended!

"Even rarer than their first LP, Prinsessev沥lset, this is a masterpiece of experimental acid folk jams.Totally stoned, the music springs out of collective improvisation. Sometimes the playing is completely free with no other basis than the listeners and the room, At other times the improvisation centers upon Hans Vindings words and tunes." - Mutant Sounds. Reissue of 1971 LP.

"Brooklyn, NYs Further Reductions have been building up a reputation around town for a while and we finally have some vinyl to show it off. Working with electronic instrumentation but not limited to electronic influences alone, Reductions are carving out their own niche of sad, beautiful pop music." - Captured Tracks. "Thru the gates of forever and into the frozen vapours of Mannattans minimal electronic monolith in the night, Further Reductions, Shawn OSullivan (of Led Er Est knowings) and collaborateur Katie Rose are weaving a web of reverberatory wonderment. One of not just a few of the minimal synth couple outfit armies to emerge from New Yorks ever living and breathing clan of the same epithet, this masculine/feminine dream drone dichotomys synthesized incantations drift like gleaming analog jewels of dark incandescent dance dew. Voices with the echoes of youth sung wistfully into in the well and steeped in the myst of minor discord float inside Familiar Flights." -La Maladie Tropicale.

Country: USA
Price: $8.50
"Primitive drum whallops, blurts of distorted (broken?) synthesizers, white noise blankets, otherworldly guitar sounds & immediate, megaphoned vocals (from Duckling) fill Faktory!, the first proper CD release from Dunnedins The Futurians. Its chaotic distorto-rock for the new age. Its analog futurism performed by a group of sci-fi addicted noise freaks. Its Wolf Eyes meets The Troggs, Teenage Jesus & the Jerks meets This Kind of Punishment. Despite the references, Futurians really are like no other. Features the should-be-legendary Clayton Noone (CJA, Armpit, The Strange Girls, Claypipe) on massive guitar." - Soft Abuse.

"Minimal Wave presents the long awaited 30th anniversary release by Futurisk. Originally from Florida, Futurisk was a pioneering electro-punk group that recorded and performed in the pre-midi era of the early 80s. They had two vinyl releases that sold out : The Sound Of Futurism 1980 / Army Now and the Player Piano EP. They played a legendary live show and had some TV appearances and videos (check their video for Army Now here), but for a number of reasons by 1984 Futurisk was history. The Player Piano LP culls material they recorded between 1980-1982, featuring all the tracks from their two 7" releases as well as some early 4 track tapes and rare studio recordings. The record is pressed on 180 gram vinyl, comes in a matte printed innersleeve (with old photos and press) and orange matte outer jacket." - Minimal Wave.
