Artist: VERDUN
Title: Two Archipelagos
Format: LP
Label: Eyland
Country: USA
Price: $11.50
“Two Archipelagos looks at how different kinds of music-making machines interact, with human intervention often limited to making sure that various forms of noise interfere with each other. Verdun is generally preoccupied with oscillatory sounds, whether generated through analogue feedback loops or repeated digital synthetics. These are the vaguely pulmonary rhythms that come from the warp core aboard the USS Enterprise, or else from your CD player when something goes terribly wrong. Verdun also love to torture electric guitars. Beyond that, the sounds variety and singularity make it near impossible to describe. The opening track, “Days of Being Wild,” records the interaction between several textures of feedback and repetition, interrupting itself now and then with the static clipping of an over-distorted guitar, or else with the long drone of dissonant chords. The icing on this cake of noise, near the end of the song, is a crystal-clear series of descending synthetic notes, as might come out of a ray-gun. Similar interplay happens in “(Oo)”. We hear the worlds worst garage band—a mutilated electric guitar, a cheap drum kit unskillfully played—but this is so muffled that the garage door might be shut. Then the robotic parents come to complain in their modem-language, and the rest of the song performs the two groups dispute: Verdun is about exploring just such contrasts between acoustical and digital noises. In Two Archipelagos, Verdun offers an insightful unfolding of the textural possibilities that our weird technological vector makes possible; this is a record that asks oblique questions and makes strange observations about what music today can and should do. Its a challenging and rewarding listen.” – Seth Perlow. Hand-screened limited edition of 100 copies.

Artist: VERONICA FALLS
Title: Beachy Head
Format: 7"
Label: Captured Tracks
Country: USA
Price: $4.25
"Veronica Falls have written a pop song about everybodys favourite place to top themselves and it is really really good. I mean, never has singing along to a graphical location where peepul choose to end it all seemed quite such top larks. This is indie of a very particular, very British, timeless and guileless sort, and its also enough to remind a person why they plumped for plaid over pop in the first place. Terrific." -Drowned in Sound.

Artist: VERTICAL SLIT
Title: Slit and Pre-Slit
Format: LP
Label: Smudge
Country: USA
Price: $12.50
"Originally released in a vanity pressing of 100 copies, this debut by James Michael Shepard & Vertical Slit has long been a holy grail item on many a collectors list. Legend has it almost 1/4th of the pressing ended up in the hands of luminaries such as Todd Rundgren, John Cale, Robert Fripp & Peter Hamill to name but a few. Musically this stands toe to toe with the cream of Nurse With Wound list prog obscuros AND Acid Archives psych outsiders. Imagine a bridge between Magical Power Makos self titled debut lp & The Decayes Ich Bin Ein Spieglei. Mastered in the furnace of the future so to bask in the luminous glow of the past. Edition of 350." - Smudge. Legendary 1977 LP of recordings made between August 1974 and January 1977. Very highly recommended!

Price: $10.50
"LP from Philadelphia lo-fi bedroom psych singer/songwriter Kurt Vile. Originally released on CD in 2008 on Gulcher Records. "kurt vile is the nom de plume of philadelphian kurt vile (!) whose shimmering home recordings reflect the artists admiration of everything from delta blues to the minimalist agro of suicide, the downer psyche of 39 clocks as well as the skiffle hum of strapping fieldhands. in other words, a real globe trotter. kurt has shared bills...as well as wiped the floor...with the likes of blues control, pink reason, clock cleaner, times new viking, magik markers, to name a few. this is his debut release. lend him your ears." - - tom lax, siltbreeze. "its like when u wake from a long and glorious slumber, then u realize u dont have to go to work, then u fall back into long and glorious slumber. kv-brand folk pop psyche to make chicks cry & blow maleminds as well...this gulcher collection compiles some of my best home recordings from all over the kv map and one studio smash hit freeway (track 1). jam it! it is the dopest!! ok, peace!!" - kurt vile, on the kv sound & constant hitmaker.

Artist: VILE, KURT
Title: God Is Saying This To You...
Format: LP
Label: Mexican Summer
Country: USA
Price: $12.25
"More than a mere odds-n-ends collection, Kurt Viles latest LP is a compilation of tracks from Overnite KV, a tour-only CDR, along with a handful of extra tracks recorded specifically for this release. Here we find Kurt solo, four-trackin as usual, and blowing minds with his mix of bluegrass guitar, blazed singer-songwriterisms, and the knowledge of how to balance these contexts out with laidback precision. Psychedelic to its core, these twelve tracks speak to the will of the casual perfectionist, honing his craft with effortless aplomb. Youll be hearing plenty more from this Philadelphian wizard in the months to follow, and were happy to keep the ball rolling with God Is Saying This to You…" - Mexican Summer.

Title: Laleh Ladan
Format: Double LP
Label: Little Gems
Country: UK
Price: $16.00
"Perhaps the only double album to be released that contains two sides instead of four. A big enough surprise three years ago when after a ten year gap to follow up the legendary and now unavailable 4LP box debut we actually got the follow up of 2LP Gatefold Set, and then with incredible speed came a seven inch on Raft Recordings, just when you might be shocked into thinking the B12 was threatening to become prolific (a double 10" has been slated for release by Italian label Elica for a couple of years also) the theory is confirmed by this new double album which almost literally turned up out of the blue with no warning or pre-information. A record of two halves, in two versions...the insert gives you track details and input information for Sides One and Two, and indeed there are two versions of this album. The same tracks, but completely reworked. For once this ploy doesnt seem lazy or an unneeded addition, its all part of the process. The music itself is a real breath of fresh air, taking (mainly) saxophone, organ, drums, violin, voice and unidentifiable noises into the sample realm and playing havoc with the integrity of those precious recordings. not a jazz or an improv record, nor electronic or concrete, but they all play their part in the B12s unknown plans. A genuine experimental album from a genuinely independent artist, not following any particular genre or approach. A self-produced item on the B12s Little Gems label, Limited to 300 copies in totality... comes with full colour gatefold and small plastic folder of picture cards." - Little Gems.

Artist: VIZUSA
Title: S/T
Format: LP
Label: Seres
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"Caitlin Cook and Calder Martin, formerly vocalist/players in EXCEPTER, resurface as a rock duo with Martin weaving holographic guitar riffs around Cooks wails and gloomy poems. The pair spent two years living in the skylight studio of the historic Matthew Brady Daguerreotype Building at 359 Broadway NYC, recording in the same vaulted rooms where Abe Lincoln, Felicita Vestvali, Edgar Allan Poe, Frederick Douglas, and Sitting Bull voluntarily screwed their heads into iron stabilizers in order to be photographed. The resulting album conveys a falsely two-sided pattern of epic American triumph, contemplative groovyness, and crumbling disaster in the guise of hyperactive fun. Cameo drum appearances blast through at key moments, courtesy of Spencer Herbst (Matta Llama), Nathan Corbin (Excepter), and the inimitable Fiz. Released on SERES, a longstanding label cohort of the NO-NECK BLUES BAND. At the right volume, the crackle of the amps will make your ass ripple." - Seres.

"Blind Prophet is proud to present as their first release the highly anticipated debut single from the Philly based coldwave act Void Vision. Already known for their incredible live performances, Void Vision will now appease the masses with the release of In 20 Years which is just as much at home amongst classic Depeche Mode or Fad Gadget as it is amongst contemporary material by artists such as Xeno & Oaklander. However, what sets them apart from their peers is a keen sense of composition and pop song structure, and Sharis powerful vocals.Limited to a mere 500 hand numbered copies, so act fast!" - Blind Prophet

Artist: VOLCANO THE BEAR
Title: Volfurten
Format: LP
Label: Volucan
Country: UK
Price: $18.50
"Volfurten is the new trip in to the odd and the strange from UK musically freaks Volcano the bear, its ltd to 300 copies each in a different hand painted cover. Which is a nice bonus,but what about the music- well this is as odd as anything they?ve done before, feeling like a very strange magic carpet ride- touch down musically in (their own) world music, jazz, odd metallic moments, dada sound tomfoolery, oh and no real vocals one this one either. The feeling, vibe or theme that starts the album and reappears later is very desert based in my mind. Though a very strange desert, one with muilt coloured sands and camels walking along the sky and strange arabic men with huge beards trailing behind them as they give audio swimming lesson backwards. Yes this is very odd stuff indeed, Track one drags us into this strange ethnic world with wonky snake dance guitar and ethnic percussion. Track two takes us deeper into the desert where we really seem to start to loose are mind as we meet all manner of manic chanting and strange audio shenanigans, before dropping into a very odd nightmare world of bent Bernard Herrmann string work, via strange building drone tones. Next it goes into a little surreal ballet dance practice, with clunky piano and all manner of bizarre calls and sounds over the top. It all ends off with a strange ritual air via distorted instrumentation and what almost sounds like typewriter key hits .Track three seems to ushers us into a black and white scene maybe something from a odd early Jess Franco film, where strange macabre female dances out a jerky and plainly disturbing death dance. As ragged violin hover and swirl in horrific air ,female voices chant like spirits calling you over the other side and goosepimply organ weaves on like the reaper seeking out victims. So as you can see you have to expected anything and everything to happen with in these audio confines. I wont detail any more as Volcano the Bear stuff is best tripped into solo and with out set vision." - Roger Batty.

Artist: VON HAUSSWOLFF, CM
Title: There Are No Crows Flying around the Hancock Building
Format: CD
Label: Lampo
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"In August 2003, Lampo invited Swedish artist CM von Hausswolff to do a project specific to Chicago. Intrepid traveler that he is, Hausswolff ascended to the top of the 100-story John Hancock Building and collected sounds from the open-air observation deck. While taking in the sights, he recorded building vibrations, passing breezes and overheard speech from tourists. Later, in his Stockholm studio, he added a series of feedback rotations to suggest crows (guardians or enemies?) encircling the conceptual tower. The result is this belching, super dense, low-end drone work. Hausswolffs new piece is his rumination on security and paranoia. What makes us safe? Is it better to dwell in a cave or in a skyscraper penthouse? Could be another lecture on sound and architecture. We hear a secret gastrointestinal message. Say what?!" - Lampo.
