Artist: Y PANTS
Title: S/T
Format: CD
Label: Periodic Document
Country: USA
Price: $8.50
"Reissue of the complete works by this unusual NYC trio from the early 80s. Featuring Barbara Ess (bass, ukulele, thumb drum, vocals), Verge Piersol (drums, vocals), Gail Vachon (keyboards, ukulele, vocals). This features their debut 7" EP on the illustrious 99 Records label (produced by Glenn Branca, from 1980), plus their Tellus comp. track and their album on Neutral from 1982, Beat It Down (produced by Wharton Tiers). Barbara Ess was the co-editor of Just Another Asshole magazine, an ex-member of the Theoretical Girls and a pretty crucial figure in the whole NY no wave scenario. Their sound wasnt the atonal no wave screech I was desperately hoping for at the time, but more of a toy-instrument-inflected performance-art cache of weirdness." - Forced Exposure. Liner notes by Dan Graham, Lynne Tillman, Wharton Tiers, Barbara Barg, Kiki Smith & Gail Vachon.

Artist: YAMANTAKE, EYE
Title: Artist Music Journal Volume 1: Edition 12
Format: Book
Label: Soundscreen Design
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"The twelfth and final edition of our Artist Music Journals series, featuring the work of Eye, known primarily as the vocalist for the Japanese band Boredoms and also for his prolific visual art portfolio. He used this project as an opportunity to design for dozens of imaginary bands, including origi- nal album art and vinyl details. One of our very favorite and most original releases in the series, we couldnt think of a better way to close the door on Volume One. About Yamantaka Eye - Eye lives and works in Japan, and is known primarily as the vocalist of the Boredoms (Voredoms), but has also worked with artists such as Nam June Paik and John Zorn, and has recently started performing solo as DJ Pika Pika Pika. In addition to his musical activities, EYE is an accomplished visual artist - his work includes collaborations with Shinro Otake (as Puzzle Punks), and he has designed many record covers, including the jacket of the Beck album Midnight Vultures." - Soundscreen Design.

Artist: YEH, C SPENCER & LASSE MARHAUG
Title: The Elementary Particles
Format: 7"
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $4.25
"This collaborative work between US improviser C. Spencer Yeh (Burning Star Core) and European sound artist Lasse Marhaug is one of the most diverse and rewarding efforts by either artist. It is the result of hours of recording, cut up and spliced together, giving the listener a glimpse into various short snippets of the sessions. Harsh quick sonic blasts, violin scrapes and drones, field recordings, vocal exercises, room clatter and more are used in the process, but the way that they are assembled and woven together provides a nonstop experience that goes best with highly concentrated listening. Still the result is so varied that something new can be heard on every listen; a recording so intense you can never truly grasp what is actually happening; most definitely a highlight in both artists discographies. In an edition of 400 7"s in proprinted foldover sleeves with art Jose DeDiego and an insert." -Arbor

Artist: YEH, C. SPENCER

Label: What The...?
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Songs 2002" are recorded from 2001-2002, having no home and no direction, just being one big question it was decided to pass along and eventually have released, so that the matter is settled and we can all move along to the next. Guitars and words. Another language to learn breathing and another see what dreams to come! Artist Paul Coors designs and silkscreens ghostphoto symmetry cover, 135 copies total at last count." - What the..?

Artist: YEH, C. SPENCER & WIESE, JOHN
Title: Cincinnati
Format: CD
Label: Dronedisco
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"The cooperative of composer/improvisers John Wiese (Sissy Spacek) and C. Spencer Yeh (Burning Star Core) reveals itself again, presenting a collection of new works titled Cincinnati. So far Wiese & Yehs previous full-length documents have been culled from live performance situations and one could site Cincinnati as the duos first studio album. Recorded face-to-face in late 2007 at Ashworth Tap Room in Cincinnati OH, Cincinnati reveals further unexpected developments and strategies of this ongoing partnership. Familiar machineries were primed, but an increasingly alien attitude was fed through and processed into churning and bewildering shapes. The results of these sessions were catalogued and surgically isolated into specimens by Yeh; a little editing employed to carve the forms somewhat presentable, but no "studio trickery" to mask the organic nature. Mastered by Saff Mastering to sharpen the bulbs and polish the blades, the whole of the fourteen tracks form a monumentally intimate body touched by indeterminate intuition, instant composition, and interior logic. Wiese and Yeh first joined together on a stage in Columbus OH, and since then have participated in the No-FI/CMN "Free Noise" 2007 tour in the UK, as well as fireworks-laden travels through coastal, midwest, and southern USA. With many finished missives yet to be issued, and many ideas discussed but not yet realized, the combined restlessness and curiousity of the team insures that "Cincinnati" gestures not only towards the past and present, but the future as well. Cincinnati is available in an edition of 500 copies in the increasingly alienated compact disc format. The included 8-page booklet contains a pictoral documenting the typical meeting between the two players." -Dronedisco

Artist: YEH, C. SPENCER/SICK LLAMA
Title: Split
Format: 7"
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $4.75
"The malformed compositions of C. Spencer Yeh and Sick Llama come from opposing spectrums of noise music, though their similarities are undeniable. Whether it be Yehs solo piece for violin or Sick Llamas gunked tape work, the spirit of improvisation shines through. On Yehs track, the churning sounds of metal scrapes and light tinges, like crossed electric static and growing, buzzing drones are the result of one violin. His unique approach to the instrument marks him as one of the most exciting improvisers today whether it be with his solo work or through his work in Burning Star Core. Sick Llamas untitled piece is one of his most concise and interesting tracks; crushing and dirty with the hiss of tape static. Coming from the stoned mind of Heath Moreland of Fag Tapes, the expected tape aesthetic is transferred to vinyl with a compilation of cut up compositions, evoking a series of mystery sound sources. In an edition of 500 7"s in proprinited fold over sleeves with art by Maya Miller of Heavy Tapes/Religious Knives." -Arbor

Artist: YELLOW SWANS & MOUTHUS
Title: Conan Island
Format: LP
Label: Weird Forest
Country: USA
Price: $12.25
"An inevitable match made in Hades. Four titans workin it out in the primordial mulch and all the gods are cowering in their presence. The dual intertwining guitar-attack impacts and fragments into the dense concrete percussion forest surrounded by a shroud of pulsing caterwauling skree. A harum-scarum locomotive ride of thick, bombastic & heavy proportions..just like you want it to be. Play loud for optimum effect! Cover art by Brian Sullivan. Limited to 500 copies" - Weird Forest

Artist: YELLOW SWANS/DEVILLOCK

Artist: YELLOW TEARS
Title: The Pissmop LP
Format: LP
Label: Hospital Productions
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"The debut full length from brooklynÂ’s yellow tears. yellow tears features members of halflings and provides a diverse industrial noise collage. painful and reflective abuse covers the hands, the face. with a wide holes guitars, junk, and electricity are swallowed and slurped up with gargling enthusiasm. compositions raise questions and provide little of answers... short tracks slide through, under and between but never leave the cap on the pen. inventive and bizarre while follows the tradition of perverse industrial fetishism." - Hospital Productions

Artist: YOUNG GOVERNOR
Title: Hidden Love
Format: LP
Label: Parts Unknown
Country: USA
Price: $9.00
"From the Great White North and the twisted mind of a one time child actor comes "Hidden Love" the first 12" EP from Young Governor. While no doubt people will jump to comparisons of Jay Retard, Home Blitz, and Kurt Vile, that is doing Young Governor a grave diservice. The perfect summer record just in time for summer, "Hidden Love" is the perfect blend of pop, singer songwriter, lo-fi, and dare we say folk. Ben Cook the mastermind behind it all has been a busy boy indeed. Its a wonder that he finds time to write and record not just Young Governor material but also releases music under the banner Bitters, all the while being a full time member of the much heralded outfit Fucked Up. Wonders will never cease and you will no doubt find yourself humming aloud the songs of pure pop class demonstrated here after just a few listens." - Parts Unknown.

Artist: YOUNGS, RICHARD & ANDREW PAINE
Title: Mauve Dawn
Format: LP
Label: Fusetron
Country: USA
Price: $9.50
"For the past eight years Andrew Paine and Richard Youngs have met on almost every Sunday and recorded music. Mauve Dawn is the result of ten meetings during 2004. Its nine tracks feature processed epinette des vosges, glockenspiel, vintage keyboards and guitars alongside granularly synthesised household objects hacked together with resonated voices and filtered bells in a stereo field heavy on ring modulation. One part of the Mauve trilogy, this is an instrumental album of classic length." - Richard Youngs & Andrew Paine.

Artist: YOUNGS, RICHARD & TIRATH SINGH NIRMALA
Title: S/T
Format: LP
Label: HP Cycle
Country: Canada
Price: $12.00
"Debut album from the duo of Richard Youngs and Tirath Singh Nirmala (nee John Clyde-Evans) that has the pair creating a bucolic minimalist meditation. Side one interchangeably features hammered strings, gong/cymbal washes, droning vocals, and breathed shackuhachi/flutes. The second side leads with a melodious encounter before delving further into a glimmering psychedelia with sawed strings, fluttering reed organ and electronic drift. The results resemble a non-western approach to traditional musics filtered through the personalized aesthetic that runs through each of the artist?s prior works. The LP is enclosed in a full colour cover with suitable "of the earth" imagery." - HP Cycle.

Artist: YOUTH OF THE BEAST
Title: Lantern
Format: 7"
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $4.75
"Youth of the Beast is pure primitive electronics, suffocating saxophone scrawl and epic percussion. Acting as the solo output for Raccoo-oo-oons Andy Spore, this record is YOTBs first vinyl offering following up a few tapes on Night People and Fuck It Tapes. Blistering vocal screeches and mixer feedback blasts meld with stray tones as brass wails and drums are pounded. Spore is a master of channeling the spirits right into the basement where he crafts his jams, creating a captivating mass of noise and psychedelic signals crossing for a painfully beautiful 10 minutes. Breathless sax solos and massive tribal percussion interspersed throughout. The sum of all these parts is something intense, unknown; an ever evolving sonic creature as bleak as it is restless. In an edition of 315 records with EPIC xeroxed double sided/double foldover (youll understand it when you see it) sleeves and printed labels by Spore." - Arbor.

Artist: YUASA, JOJI
Title: Obscure Tape Music From Japan Vol.1 - Aoi No Ue
Format: CD
Label: Omega Point
Country: Japan
Price: $17.50
"Famous composer JOJI YUASAs legendary earliest musique concrete work AOI-no-UE (1961) and his final electronic music (not computer music) My Blue Sky No.1 (1975) made at NHK electronic music studio. The sound of AOI-no-UE is made from voices of Japanese traditional theater Noh. My Blue Sky No.1 is made from only click and pulse. Both works are world premiere issue as obscure tape music series by OMEGA POINT. This CD contains one of my comprehensive work on music concrete Aoi-noUe and my last electronic music My Blue Sky (No.1) before I went into computer music. Aoi-noUe is a noh-play composed by Ze-Ami in 15th century, based on famous The Tales of Genji written by Murasaki Shikibu in 11th century. The text is recomposed by me keeping original words. And it was sung in the style of Noh-chant by three brothers of Noh actor, Kanze Hideo, Hisao and Shizuo. This work Aoi-no-Ue is composed mainly based on metamorphosed sound of Nohchant. The other sound is concrete sound such as birds songs, water drops, glasses, warped sound of vibraphone, some generated electronic sound and others. My Blue Sky (No.1) is a special electronic work for me, for most of my other works on this field are based on White Noise. Where as only this piece is exceptionally using the other generated sound. However, my thoughts on denying to use so called bare generated waves such as sine, square triangle or saw are not changed. In this work only clicks, pulses and various kinds of beats induced from them, varying piches, width and their frequency of the pulse are adopted. For example I controlled successively occuring pulses of low frequency of sine wave by means of triggering with the frequency of square wave." - Joji Yuasa

Artist: YURA YURA TEIKOKU
Title: Soft Death
Format: 12"
Label: Mesh Key

The B-side features an exclusive remix of "It Was A Robot," along with a "Soft Death" instrumental mix. The bands ecstatic pop/pysch sound has been embraced by both rock and dance music fans alike. Limited to 500 copies." - Mesh Key.

Artist: YVES/SON/ACE
Title: Parade of Thoughts/Cant Sleep
Format: LP
Label: Night People
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"Yves/Son/Ace is a solo outlet from the Factums/Love Tan camp out of Seattle. Less an experiment in synth noise and drone then the"Cold Showers" Night-People cassette, Parade of Thoughts/Cant Sleep evokes a sort of deconstructed synth pop aesthetic. Druggy, hushed vocals float over vintage rhythm machines, synth noise goop, and lost world music radio tones. Minimal, isolated, deranged, and savage, Yves/Son/Ace is junk pop music for a disconnected world full of detritus and longing. A subtle sound that grows in your skull like fungus on rotting wood." - Night People.
