Artist: TAKAHASHI, IKURO
Title: Domori to Sanshu
Format: CD
Label: Siwa
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"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.

Artist: TARGAL, JEM
Title: Luckey Guy
Format: CD
Label: Obscure Oxide
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"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. Audio digitally transferred, with no added compression or equalisation, from the 1/4" analogue two-track master reels. Obscure Oxide.

Artist: TART
Title: Bring in the Admiral
Format: LP
Label: Swill Radio
Country: USA
Price: $10.50
"Tart (Graham Lambkin, Karla Borecky, and Scott Foust) presents the world with their second LP, Bring In The Admiral. Since the release of their first LP, Radio Orange, Tart has been playing and honing their trade at various shows in the Northeast. Using the same minimal instrumentation as the live shows (two small casios, guitar, and a shortwave/cassette boombox plus a few studio effects and The Anti-Naturals trademark: tight, subtle, and yet powerful editing), Tart produces a dazzling array of scenarios, a testament to deranged beauty. Tart is a band that truely does not sound like anyone else. Beautiful color cover. Who doesnt need a little Tart in their life?" - Swill Radio.

Artist: TART
Title: Radio Orange
Format: LP
Label: Swill Radio
Country: USA
Price: $10.50
"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.

Title: Thin AIr
Format: LP
Label: Youth Attack
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
600 copies w/extra heavy 28 pt."old style" tip-on covers in resealable bags."There is a dying plebeian ambivalence to the ghastly creaks and tragedies of New York City. Only here can one man come up against another, individually in a void, and speak collectively to the disintegration of his being. A city where the deluge of beauty is mystified by the constant groan of economy undermining a perpetually dissolving modernity. 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. These luminous sights, sounds, and sensations of this mythological frontier are but mere scuffles and flurries under the crumbling stone and iron exposed to the decay and the terror of the overwhelming shadows that engulf us." - Youth Attack.

Artist: TECHNICAL SPACE COMPOSERS CREW
Title: Canaxis 5
Format: LP
Label: Scheisshouse
Country: Germany
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. With just one long track on each side, this faithful reissue features all the original artwork." - Scheisshouse.

Artist: TEENAGE BOATPEOPLE
Title: NOW
Format: CD
Label: Agua Prieta
Country: USA
Price: $7.00
"Teenage Boatpeople NOW (Agua Prieta 000209) contains 5 new songs recorded in 2009, 4 songs that comprised the out of print vinyl EP, 4 BY THE TEENAGE BOATPEOPLE, originally released in 1979, and 4 demos recorded in 1980. 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). Milo Fine is an internationally known improvising musician who has been active in the field since 1969. He has been featured on 3 dozen published documents including recordings with Free Jazz/Improvised Music legends Anthony Braxton, Derek Bailey, the Reform Art Unit, Hugh Davies, among others." -Agua Prieta

Artist: TELESCOPES, THE
Title: Infinite Suns
Format: LP
Label: Textile
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

Artist: TENNISCOATS
Title: Live Wanderus
Format: CD
Label: Chapter Music
Country: Australia
Price: $12.50
"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.

Artist: TERRESTRIAL TONES
Title: Blasted
Format: CD
Label: Psych-o-Path
Country: USA
Price: $8.50
"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: THAYER, TOM
Title: S/T
Format: LP
Label: Tom Thayer
Country: USA
Price: $10.50
“Tom Thayer is a NY visual artist who creates paintings, drawings, sculpture, music, puppetry, film and theatrical experiments.  These works are often loosely strung, frail objects depicting dilapidated, fantastical scenes of abstract human and animal figures.  This is his first record of music, self-titled LP, edition of 550, released on his own Cardboard Mirror label.  From the artist, “This record contains a broken, mildewed darkride of songs and beats held together by adhesive tape and string.” We saw his gig and there were bird puppets playing records with their beaks, speeding up/slowing down, pecking the vinyl.  This recording—remember the Plonsky record, or the recordings of Jean Dubuffet?  Profound minimal electronic manipulation in real time by his own hand, mixed with crude sampling, creates a stunning first offering.  Check his art at www.tomthayer.net.”  - Sound At One.

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)

Artist: THORNTON, CARTER
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.

"For the lucky few who were floored by Titmachines debut 7" (released earlier this yr via Meeuw Muzak) come this sophomore effort, loaded for bear & released on the Siltbreeze label. Continuing their penchant for a-side covers, this time the ladies tackle Palais Schaumburgs Wir Bauen Eine Neue Stadt (or We Build A New City if you speak only in Gods preferred tongue) & the results are as devastatingly great as could be imagined. Stripped of its NDW gloss, Titmachines reworking is more doused in raw Gueuze than refined Pilsener. In other words, them yeasts be wild yall!

Title: S/T
Format: LP
Label: Animal Disguise
Country: USA
Price: $9.00
"Total Life is the solo project of Kevin Doria who is also a member of the atmospheric/noise/drone group, Growing. 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.

"unauthorized serivicing the ATM take me back to the post office. handstands at the chud opening. live show in sao paulo at el cavra chupa that felipe set up. a few drums and broken guitars mostly cable buzz and then the bus of british exchange students, wasted after liverpool beats mexico in the semifinals, storm in the gig and start taking the mic some weird void shit goin on. trash dog plays mostly just the kids taking over trash dog just a vehicle at this point for collision. recorded to walkman in dungles back pocket though the chaos getting turned on and off and somehow makes it back to the states and on wax. similiar to the environmental records popular in the 70s this is a recording of basements sounds and maybe a band plays. the crowd is loudest of all. something is happening. is this a record or just gateway drug like some dirty grass near the riverbed? the lawnmower man creeps with WD40 to grease the chain. stevie nix took the right moves." -YNG

Format: One Sided LP
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $9.00
"Suburban Michigan is a breeding ground where every weirdo has a label, a band, and a handful of secret/under the radar collaborative projects. Here Graveyards Ben Hall and Lambsbreads Zac Davis create a monolithic one sider influenced by too many private press jazz records and abstract instrumentalism. Davis turns in his effect pedals for nothing; pure clean tones plucked up and down scales and bridges so uniquely that it is easy to confuse the guitar for a sax. Ben Hall drums like a man with four arms; constant rattling trap tapping and assorted pots and pans clattering, flowing completely smoothly. A perfect union of sound. In an edition of 300 copies in screened chipboard sleeves by Anthony Decanini. "- Arbor

"After getting rid of that thieving fuck, Traum reformats as more of a trio approach this go-round with Chris Riggs absolutely destroying the guitar chair. And what a damaged overall approach it is. 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. Riggs and Bunny move through all the material with a push/pull controlled passive aggressiveness that makes it impossible again and again to figure out whos doin what." -Brokenresearch

"Zac Davis who has had his Michigan rights revoked for theft finds himself on the very last brokenresearch release to ever have his sorry ass name associted with said label. Heads up with percussion hater Hell Hall this is some Billy Cobham vs. Coryell under dirt filled microscope for the mass of listeners who post up as both noise and fusion fans. A one sider with brutal force, this is an excellent companion to "Built for Nothing" and really that is the most fitting title for a group that had action for about ten minutes until our guitarist decided that friends are for using. No description like this has ever been posted to the HnAm board but very few have been more honest about what they were peddling-- a document of two people who used to be cool and now..." -Brokenresearch

"[Kathleen Bairds] voice is deep, sleepy and Nico-esque, her instrumentation loose and imaginative. Like if Brigitte Fontaine fronted Current 93. Her lush and exotic arrangements include bells, mbira, guitars, and other plectra, flutes, and synthesizers, all orchestrated to outline her careful, but never fussy, songcraft." -Secret Eye

Artist: TROPA MACACA
Title: Sensacao Do Principio
Format: LP
Label: Siltbreeze
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"Sensacao Do Principio is the third release proper from Portuguese experimental duo TROPA MACACA and their first with an American label. Their previous efforts on Ruby Red and Qbico were magnificent (though hard to find) efforts of blotted, aural sci-fi codifications somewhere between Anar Band and Blues Control. The two-track full-length continues their foray into post-psychedelic instrumental morphine, where Moolahs LP and Pink Floyds "Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together in a Cave and Grooving with a Pict" function as templates for the greater good. In other words, you gotta hear if for yourself. Limited edition of 500 copies." -Siltbreeze.

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.

Title: The Story of
Format: LP

Price: $9.00
"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.
