Artist: U.S. GIRLS
Title: Introducing
Format: LP
Label: Siltbreeze
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"If the alluring moniker used by Megan Remy conjures images of volleyball teams or cheerleading squads, forget it. Not that theres any doubt that Remy--sorry, U.S. Girls--couldnt rise and conquer either challenge. Like fellow DIY ingenues Sally Strobelight and Inca Ore, U.S. Girls approach is deceptively ethereal and delightfully haunting; lithe, lysergic gamma rays of keyboard murk beamed over percussive bonk sort of resemble Diamanda Galas reinterpreting Suicides Red Star. And dig that cover of Bruce Springsteens "Prove It All Night," done in such an effortless, barbital lush youd swear the air was filled with mescaline. Guess what? Its not." - Siltbreeze

Artist: UKE OF SPACES CORNERS COUNTY
Title: So Far On The Way
Format: LP
Label: Trd w/d
Country: USA
Price: $7.50
"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?. I dunno about you, but until Pep Lester releases his lp of Avant-Bluegrass ditties, the bar for goodness starts here." - Siltblog.

Artist: UNITED WATERS
Title: Your First Ever River
Format: LP
Label: Arbitrary Signs
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"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.

Artist: URDOG
Title: Garden of Bones
Format: CD
Label: Secret Eye
Country: USA
Price: $10.25
"Tight and textural psych rock by three of Providences finest. Driving, tribal drumming, fuzzed-out Farfisa, and searing guitar licks. Atmospheric yet rocking, this is music to which you can shake your booty┬░≠" Secret Eye

Artist: UTON
Title: Alitaja Ylimina
Format: LP
Label: Dekorder
Country: Germany
Price: $18.50
"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. The latter collaboration (under the Hevoset moniker) will be released on LP by Dekorder later this year." - Dekorder.

Artist: UTON
Title: Straight Edge XXS
Format: LP
Label: Dekorder
Country: Germany
Price: $18.50
""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. Uton is the one-man project of Jani Hirvonen originally hailing from Tampere. 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. 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, Ruralfauna and his own Ikuisuus.

The latter collaboration (under the Hevoset moniker) is released on LP by Dekorder simultaneously." - Dekorder.
