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.

Artist: JGRZINICH
Title: Intimations
Format: CD
Label: CMR
Country: New Zealand

"Sound and Video artist John Grzinich has been working under the name jgrzinich since 1995. He has performed and worked extensively throughout Europe and the US. His sound compositions have been published internationally on such labels as Staalplaat (NL), erewhon (BE), Intransitive Recordings (US), Orogenetics (US), Elevator Bath (US), Pale-Disc (JP), Digital Narcis (JP). These works consist of collaborations with mnortham, Seth Nehil and Frequency Curtain (Josh Ronsen, Rick Reed, jgrzinich). Since 1994 jgrzinich has explored various approaches to sound generation, recording and production. 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." John Grzinich currently lives in Estonia and works as a media lab coordinator for MOKS, an NGO organization dedicated to local and international cooperation in the fields of arts, social and environmental research." - CMR.

Artist: JOE HEBERT BAND
Title: I Dont Wanna Be A Preppy
Format: 7"
Label: Last Laugh
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!
