Artist: ALCORN, SUSAN
Title: Evening Tales
Format: LP
Label: Mystra
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Mystra is beyond excited to be putting out the Susan Alcorn Evening Tales lp(!) We strongly doubt there ever will be a record in history that is anything like it...how could there!) A friend of ours was telling us a story recently about the first moon orbit...his eyes were wide...and he talked slowly...did you know... that when the first astronauts circled behind the moon.... they started hearing super crazy noises?? piercing sounds and strange reverb style effects and stuff... all coming from the planet Saturn(!) So cool...most have scared those astronauts(!) Its interesting...how no one seems to talk about this phenomenon...sounds emitted from a not too distant planet...there are so many mysteries still...(!)The beautiful music made by Susan Alcorn is one of them. Unique, amazing, and mysterious are just a few of the terms associated with her recordings...Why she is not better known/talked about is just part of the big mystery. Some in the know folks love her for sure...like us...but still(!) Maybe she REALLY IS too good for this world...Maybe she should play for the folks on Saturn instead...(?) And YES.. maybe there IS a similar quality to her sound...something a bit Saturn-like..with a outer space quality (A different Saturn than Sun-Ra? or maybe not...?)" - Mystra.

Artist: AMBARCHI, OREN/KASSEL JAEGER/JAMES RUSHFORD
Title: Pale Calling
Format: LP
Label: Black Truffle
Country: Australia
Price: $20.00
"Pale Calling presents the fruits of the first collaboration between Oren Ambarchi, Kassel Jaeger and James Rushford, recorded at GRM studios, Paris in 2014. Although drawing on aspects of each members solo works, the trio mark out their own unique territory, a mysterious space of slowly cycling electronics, distracted vocal mumbles and often unidentifiable field recordings. These two side-long pieces are composed of distinct layers that gently rise up and recede, obeying a dream-logic that feels entirely disconnected from traditional electro-acoustic composition, forming surreal sonic images in which half-remembered fragments of everyday life mix with the quiet intensity of dreams haunted by natural forces. Over the course of the first side a slowly thudding electronic pulse eventually gives way to a distant organ, detouring through reverberated guitar shimmers, moments of Ashley-esque vocal automatism and waves of insects and bats. The second side utilises similar ingredients, this time layered over the top of what sounds like radically slowed down film music. As the field recorded and electronic spray slowly builds, the listener is left with the impression of hearing the last moments of a dying television abandoned in a field overrun with animals and insects" - Francis Plagne.

Artist: AMPH/ARV & MILJO
Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Jartecknet
Country: Sweden
Price: $20.00
"In the series Nordiska ljud Järtecknet will present split Lps featuring Nordic acts. First out in the series is a split between Amph and Arv & Miljö."
Amph shows a slightly diffrent approach this time, focusing on a less fragmentised and layered sound, creating a more nuanced and varied expression. In their 19-minute piece Nolde they explore new territories, showing a delicate sense for well-crafted sounds and composition.
Arv & Miljö contributes with a conceptual piece, called Bilism, consisting of sounds deriving from traffic and highways. A rather demanding recording adding new and interesting aspects to the project. With a cold and distant sound, Bilism, puts you in the seat of the observer. A recording suitable for multiple rotations!
Released in 220 copies." - Jartecknet.

Title: Vattnet drog sig tillbaka, stenarna blev synliga
Format: LP
Label: Jartecknet
Country: Sweden
Price: $20.00
“It was two years ago Ättestupa released their last fullength recording. An act that never seemed to fit easily in any rigid stilistic framework. Always evolving and moving into new directions but still somehow managing to keep a distinct feeling and uncompromising approach. Their fourth Lp release doesnt differ from this picture. Still hanging on to a sound that bears the undisputed characteristics known from earlier releases we are exposed for new elements and musical narrative. The new Lp pushes into new territories, moving away from traditional song structures and instrumentations, presenting a distinct and carefully elaborated recording where the two sides constitutes a well integrated totality of stripped down bleakness. The birth of tragedy. Released in 300 copies.” - Jartecknet.

Artist: BAND OF PAIN/NURSE WITH WOUND
Title: Noinge
Format: 10"
Label: Dirter Promotions
Country: UK
Price: $20.00
“RSD 2016 release -- late addition. Orange 10" in a beautiful gatefold sleeve with Babs Santini art and an insert. This record is the first collaboration between Nurse With Wound and Band Of Pain. Each artist has used the others music as source material to create a sumptuous feast for all discerning and adventurous audio palettes. There is no B-side, only the A-side and Side 1.The Band Of Pain side exclusively uses material from the NWW album A Sucked Orange (DPROM 101CD, 1990). It has been processed like a high street burger, with little meat of the original left. The result is a superb piece of musique concrète that sounds like it belongs in another century and another universe. The Nurse With Wound side uses various Band Of Pain pieces that are battered and deep-fried beyond recognition. The results were sprinkled with an array of exotic spices, additional sauce, and chemically enhanced additives. The final outcome is a dense, creamy, rich slice of vintage Nurse With Wound -- with a twist.” - Dirter Promotions.

Artist: BASINSKI, WILLIAM
Title: Variations: A Movement in Chrome Primitive
Format: Double CD
Label: Die Stadt
Country: Germany
Price: $27.00
"Another excellent work from the archives of American composer William Basinski (who is also responsible for one of the most beautiful and moving series in the field of experimental music: the four Disintegration Loops I-IV CDs released on his own 2062 label). This 2CD is a joint release with David Tibets (Current 93) own Durtro label. It comes in a 4 panel digisleeve." William Basinski about this work: Variations: A Movement In Chrome Primitive was created in 1981 using piano tape loops, which were played randomly against themselves creating feedback loops. By cloning small cells of melody and then breeding them randomly, new sounds were formed. These new sounds move in and out of the original cells, creating complex crystalline structures: new life forms not unlike cities for example, which the original cells occupy, moving in and out of one another in surprising variations. The equipment I used to record these pieces was very primitive and my recording technique preposterously amatuerish at that time, yet what occurred in these youthful experiments compelled me to continue learning and growing as a composer." - Die Stadt.

Artist: BEILES, SINCLAIR
Title: Chopin in Majorca
Format: Cass
Label: Sloow Tapes
Country: Belgium
Price: $7.00
"Sinclair Beiles (1930-2000), one of South Africas more unusual and often underrated poets, left his home country in the mid-fifties and after spending time in New Zealand, Spain and Morocco he moved to Paris which at the time was the centre of international bohemia. Beiles worked in Paris as chief editor for publisher Maurice Girodias Olympia Press and established links with the American beat generation of writers, particularly Allen Ginsberg, Brion Gysin, Gregory Corso and William Burroughs. Together they collaborated on the legendary collection of Dadaist cut-ups, Minutes to Go. When the Paris scene fell apart in the early sixties, he left for Greece. In 1969 Beiles published a volume of poetry Ashes of experience, his first substantial publication.
Beiles returned to South Africa in the seventies and later married fellow poet Marta Proctor. They moved into a house in Yeoville, Johannesburg and soon became part of the Yeoville artistic group in the eighties. He often performed his poetry live, at venues such as the Black Sun. In 1997 Beiles finally received some recognition when the French Cultural Institute and the British Council of Johannesburg organised a Beat Hotel exhibition in Carfax where Beiles read his poems. Beiles had a history of mental instability and his illness made him at times unpredictable and volatile. ‘Chopin in Majorca is a one-man play and was recorded in 1989. Cover photo by Gerard Bellaart. Edition of 100 copies." - Sloow Tapes.

Artist: BOHMAN, ADAM/NYOUKIS, DYLAN
Title: Adam Bohman with Dylan Nyoukis & Friends
Format: Cass
Label: Scumbag Relations
Country: USA
Price: $7.00
"Adam Bohman is a member of Morphogenesis and The London Improvisors Orchestra. He also regularly performs alongside his brother Jonathan under the guise The Bohman Brothers. Their sound art oscillates between states of the absurd and (sonically) grotesque to highly articulate explorations of extra-musical sound. Electroacoustic music and free-improvisation could be regarded as co-ordinates on the grid. However,unlike the hermeticism of electro-acoustic music or the purism of free-improvisation, the Bohmans freely quote from any source and arent afraid to show it. So you get Varesesian sound montage supporting spoken word material sourced from a pub menu, or frenetic juxtapositions between amplified shoe brushes and a frenzied tape cut-up of 17th Century instruments. The Bohman aesthetic can be a dense and tangled thing to unpick and describe. Various and nefarious sounds and artistic influences merge and collide. Dylan Nyoukis work exists on the fringe of contemporary avant garde art and underground DIY insurrection." - David Keenan, Glasgow, June 2009

Artist: BRÖTZMANN, PETER & PEETER UUSKYLA
Title: Dead and Useless
Format: LP
Label: Omlott
Country: Sweden
Price: $23.00
Edition of 500. Recorded at Bohus Sound Recording Kungälv, Sweden on September 9, 2006. Previously released as part of the "Born Broke" CD on Atavistic. Brötzmann and Uusklya have collaborated since the mid-late 90s.
“Uuskylas other notable collaborations have been with free jazz legends Cecil Taylor and Bengt Fredrik Nordström. While he can go toe-to-toe with Brötzmann, he is a colourist here, not a pugilist. The music is a conversation, a colloquy between discriminating artists. Opening with subdued horn and sticks on cymbal, the pair sift through a sound that simmers, yet rarely boils. Uuskyla persuades the saxophonist without provoking him. As with truly great drummers, he can do more with a downsized kit, say more with a flick of the wrist and a hesitant tom-tom roll than other busy players.” - Mark Corroto, All About Jazz.

Artist: BROTZMANN, PETER, FRED HOPKINS & RASHIED ALI
Title: Songlines
Format: Double LP
Label: Trost
Country: Austria
Price: $31.00
“Double LP version. Peter Brötzmann: tenor saxophone, alto saxophone, tárogató; Fred Hopkins: double bass; Rashied Ali: drums. Recorded by Holger Scheuermann and Jost Gebers, October 30 and 31, 1991, in Berlin. First released on FMP as FMP CD 53 in 1994. "In perhaps the most understated performance of his entire career, German saxophone giant Peter Brötzmann played in a trio with American free jazz legends Fred Hopkins and Rashied Ali back in 1991 at the now mythical Total Music Meeting. . . . Brötzmann appears to have been in awe on this date so great is his restraint. There are literally no passages in the entire concert where he attempts to push his way through the rhythm section to get to the other side. No mean feat when you consider the mans powerful personality both on and off the stage. But Hopkins was a founding member of Air with Henry Threadgill, and Ali, of course, played with John Coltrane. Given these proceedings with their haunted, hunted, beauty, it would be fair to say that -- even on his own compositions -- the mighty Brötzmann was humbled in the presence of these great musicians. Does that mean he was humbled by them? Hardly. Brötzmanns playing here is so fiery and lyrical, so completely focused on his rhythm section that he turns harmonies on their heads and finds intervals in places where the only thing that should be happening is free blowing. He is the bands leader by the force of that lyricism and restraint. He makes room for the other players to move through and around him rather than behind him. His sheer musicality is wondrous. Hopkins and Ali are no strangers to each other -- there is telepathic communication; the shift from one modality to the next is seamless and grounded, each player by the other. There are six compositions on this record; it comes off as a very intense, extremely quiet kind of blowing gig, where this trio were looking to discover things about each other and the music they were making. As a result, it is one of the finest performances issued from that festival, and a landmark in Brötzmanns career in particular." - Thom Jurek, AllMusic.

Artist: BRUME
Title: Ainsi Soit-il!
Format: LP
Label: Rotorelief
Country: France
Price: $20.00
Limited edition of 250. "Alone, you have to listen to Brume alone, and lie down far from the neon lights, traffic, and gossip, with your lights filtered. In the dominating dark and night, Brume carries an atomized reality to a world where chaos rhymes with spatial waverings, where atmosphere is devoid of impurity, rich with rhythms and sonorities, and dense with emotions, for a mysterious -- but undoubtedly innovative -- energetic trip. Rich, complex, and experimental Ainsi Soit-il! envelopes us. Brume (Christian Renou) is a prolific French musique concrète composer/sound sculptor who has won himself a place of his own with his crossover between sound collages, electroacoustics, and noise. His compositions rely on dense, rapid-fire montage and wed cacophony and dynamics, emphasizing both the elements of discontinuity and continuity. 1978: first steps with a Farfisa organ, inspired by surreal soundscapes à la Fripp & Eno and experiments experiments experiments. Tries to make a compromise between electronic and electroacoustic. 1985: creation of the Brume Rec. label. 1986-2000: many LPs, CDs, and cassettes, and some soundtracks for visual artists. 2000: Brume stops everything. Regeneration. 2008: 30 years after his first sound, Brume starts his experimentation again. For our pleasure." - Rotorelief.

His compositions rely on dense, rapid-fire montage and wed cacophony and dynamics, emphasizing both the elements of discontinuity and continuity. "Xerxeswas the King of Persia in 500 B.C. and could be considered today as a symbol of blitzkrieg. His aggressive instincts allowed him to defeat the Greek army in a quite short period of time thanks to his great armada. Xerxes can be considered as a symbol of aggression, of invasion and lets say of penetration by all meanings of the word. . . . This sonorous material bearing the same name tries through sonorous metaphors but also through direct resonances to concretise this notion of ultra-violent aggression inherent to all periods of Humanity. . . . Today in 2011 all systems, and this thanks to new techniques of information, keep on bombarding and formatting the masses with high-flying high-tech systems suitable to their ideals. . . .

Title: Vestiges Of An Inherent Melancholy
Format: LP
Label: Blackest Rainbow
Country: UK
Price: $24.00
"Second vinyl LP from this formerly active American duo of Will Long and Danielle Baquet-Long, which also happens to be the second LP from Celer on Blackest Rainbow. Vestiges Of An Inherent Melancholy follows on from the recent pairing of releases on Basses Frequencies and features 2 sides of unearthed recordings that were created between December 2006 and July 2008. These two sides find the duo creating some truly beautiful drone works with their use of an organic and electronic palette of instrumentation; cello, violin, pipe organ, electronics, tape, field recordings, samples, and mixing board. This really is a standout side from Celer, pulling together their variety of sounds to make a heart breaking collage of sounds falling between beautiful dream tones and heavier dark moments. Vestiges Of An Inherent Melancholy again pushes Celer further to the front of modern minimal composition, proving that they were one of the most interesting, consistently outstanding, and intriguing acts around in recent years, creating some of the finest and most beautiful, fragile drone records around. The full experience of a Celer release is complete with accompanying titled fragmented sections for the side long pieces, and striking cover photography by Danielle. Limited to 500 copies in thick old style tip-on hardback jackets with LPs pressed on 140 gram virgin vinyl." -Blackest Rainbow

Title: Clocks And Babies
Format: CD
Label: Klanggalerie
Country: Austria
Price: $21.00
"Chakk existed between 1981 and 1987. Their first single, Out Of The Flesh, was recorded with Richard H. Kirk at Cabaret Voltaires Western Works studio and mixed and engineered by Alan Cross, a member of the band who had studio training. Chakks original sound was centred around Cross four track tape machine, some home built echo and effects boxes and a small mixing desk. They had always believed that the most important instrument a band could use was the studio itself. The first album by Sheffield electro funk group Chakk was originally released as a cassette by the band themselves in 1982. Personnel for this album: Mark Tattersall (also in Element/Transelement, drummer for Cabaret Voltaire on various recordings), Mark Brydon (also in Moloko, Hula), Sim Lister (also in Heights of Abraham), Alan Cross (DJ Alan X). This early recording, unheard by most people until today, presents a much jazzier and funkier Chakk than later Fon releases. It could be compared to early Clock DVA. Theres also a lot of Cabaret Voltaire here, some Hula, also some Industrial music. The album is one wild ride of styles and sounds. Its a fantastic document of its time, and at the same time a timeless and brilliant piece of music. Carefully remastered for this first digital release." - Klanggalerie.

Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Finders Keepers
Country: UK
Price: $26.00
2012 release. "The electrification of K.S. Chithra and Kollywood pop! Known by adoring fans and devotees, throughout South India, as Chinna Kuyil (trans. "Little Nightingale") on account of her expansive vocal range and crystalline, sweet voice, the uplifting and surprising sound of K.S. Chithra is, for many, best exemplified by the early plugged-in-pop she made in the 1980s with the man/machine who first introduced her to the Tamil film industry, Maestro Ilaiyaraaja. There are few records you will hear that combine the sounds of a childs choir, a DX7 bass line, three types of drum machines, a mariachi trumpet cry, a re-sampled 40-piece orchestra and an electronic bass line that takes the Moog Taurus by the horns and rides into the Indian summer. There is probably less chance of hearing a vocal performance so confusingly dazzling that it instantly detracts from the previously aforementioned wish-list combination of bizarre instruments, but for those intrepid enough to dig a little deeper and take a detour due East, pick-axing right where Lollywood meets Bollywood -- then prepare to be rewarded with a double, triple and quadruple whammy! This compilation focuses on a small and select handful of Chithra and Ilaiyaraajas developing collaborations from the formative years of their relationship between -- 1986 and 1991 -- a vibrant time where analog recording techniques and digital technology first overlapped and Chithra, as a developing vocalist, adapted to the sounds and arrangements of a classic maverick composer pushing the boundaries." - Finders Keepers.

"In the summer of 1969 we made a collective film The Search on the heath in Jutland, Denmark. Henning Christiansen made on site field recordings for the individual scenes with Peter Sakse as sound master. The music was first time used during the performance at the festival Strategy: Gets Art exhibition organised by Richard Demarco at Edinburgh College of Art, on August 21, 1970 with Joseph Beuys and Henning Christiansen. Henning Christiansen sampled the field recording into the organ music from Eurasienstab. He gave this composition subsequently the title Requiem of Art fluxorum organum II Opus 50. That means a requiem over the role of art in the 1960s." --Ursula Reuter Christiansen, Møn, Denmark, October 20, 2015.

Title: Buchla Concerts 1975
Format: LP
Label: Finders Keepers
Country: UK
Price: $28.00
"The lost synth manifesto that could have changed the course of electronic music history by the first lady of modular synth history, Suzanne Ciani. Buchla Concerts 1975 is an archival project that not only redefines musical history but boasts genuine claim to such overused buzzwords as pioneering, maverick, experimental, groundbreaking, and esoteric, while questioning social politics and the evolution of music technology as weve come to understand it. To describe this record as a game-changer is an understatement. This record represents a musical revolution, a scientific benchmark, and a trophy in the cabinet of counterculture creativity. This record is a triumphant yardstick in the synthesizer space race and the untold story of the first woman on the proverbial moon. While pondering the early accolades of this record its daunting to learn that this record was in fact not a record at all . . . it was a manifesto and a gateway to a new world that somehow never quite opened. In 1975, Suzanne Ciani was a 29-year-old employee of the Buchla modular synthesizer company, San Franciscos neck-and-neck contender with New Yorks Moog. If the unfamiliar, modernistic, melodic pulses, tones, and harmonics found on this 1975 live presentation/grant application/educational demonstration had been placed in a phonographic context, they would have provided nothing short of an entirely different, feminine take on the experimental records of Morton Subotnick and proved to a small, judgmental audience and jury the true versatility of one of the most radical and idiosyncratic musical instruments of the 20th century. In denouncing her own precocious, polymathematic past in a bid to persuade the world to sing from a new hymn sheet, Suzanne Ciani created a byproduct of never-before-heard music that would render the pigeonholes "ambient" and "futuristic" utterly inadequate. These recordings have not been heard since then. Needless to say, this record, finally commanding the archival format of choice, was not the last "first" that this hugely important composer would gift to society and the future, in a wide range of exciting, evolving creative disciplines in the worlds of synth design, advertising, and film composition. You have found a holy grail of electronic music and a female musical pioneer who was too proactive to take the trophies. You cant write history when you are too busy making it. With fresh ink in the bottomless well, lets start at the beginning. Again. You are invited." - Finders Keepers.

Artist: CLUSTER
Title: 1971-1981
Format: 9 LP Box
Label: Bureau B
Country: Germany
Price: $188.00
“Edition of 1000. Clusters influence on the development of electronic music cannot be overstated. The original trio of Conrad Schnitzler, Hans-Joachim Roedelius, and Dieter Moebius released two seminal albums as Kluster before Roedelius and Moebius replaced the "K" with a "C" and continued as a duo. They produced eight albums in their most innovative period between 1971 and 1981, two of them together with Brian Eno. Cluster anticipated much of what would later emerge in such varied styles as industrial, ambient, electro, and even synthpop. Some call Clusters music avant-garde, others krautrock or kosmische musik. Few would dispute their immense influence, despite their relative lack of commercial success. Hence their first album, as a microcosm of their entire oeuvre, made The Wires 1998 list "100 Records That Set the World on Fire (When No One Was Listening)." This box set contains all eight of the albums that represent Clusters main phase, plus a previously unreleased album of two live recordings from 1972 and 1977. All of the albums have been remastered by Willem Makkee. Includes booklet with essays on each album, rare photos, and an exclusive text on the evolution and significance of the band by Asmus Tietchens, excerpted here: "Cacophonous noise in the 1970s and 1980s masked the subtlety of Cluster aesthetics, diminishing their force of impact. Only since the 1990s, and all the more so today, have Cluster been identified and celebrated as pioneers. The somewhat hackneyed avant-garde tag really amounts to nothing more than being ahead of ones time. . . . Now, twenty, thirty years later, with so many new aural experiences on offer, listening habits have changed to such a great extent that we are better placed to assess Clusters importance, their influence on subsequent generations of musicians. . . . The eight (official) Cluster albums presented here trace the groups arc of development over a period of around ten years. Not a particularly extensive oeuvre compared to many of their peers, but prolificacy was never a feature of Clusters constitution. They only released a new album when they felt that they had taken a significant step forwards on their musical trajectory -- which goes some way to explaining how varied and different their LPs were. Cluster were no pedagogues, but their indirect influence on musicians and, more to the point, on listeners, resonates until today. Can a legacy be any more alive?”” - Bureau B.

Title: In the Box
Format: 3 LP Box
Label: Spittle
Country: Italy
Price: $58.00
"A happening -- maybe one could call it that. Confusional Quartet is one of the most original and unique bands to ever come out of Italy, and one of the few bands able to switch from the prog rock era to dislocated art forms, painting their music with traces of early electronica and a post-punk twist (read: no wave). A bridge linked the band from Bologna (rock) to the musical past and present of the nation, with senses of urgency and creativity on top and a revolutionary aesthetic revealed between the lines. No lyrics -- the music was truly instrumental, incorporating no social issues, but evoked a future no less narrow with their sonic scenario. Its really hard to pinpoint the band; they even re-created a singular version of Domenico Modugnos 1958 Sanremo Music Festival-winning "Volare" in a truly devolved way. Italian music history undergoes shock therapy in the exotic manifesto "Samba Paperino" and in the jazz-rock ostinato of "Pronipoti." Now listeners can finally share the whole experience of this truly unique band with this comprehensive box. The first LP contains their 1980 self-titled LP, the second contains their 1981 self-titled 10" EP, and the third contains their 1981 triple-7" flexi disc Documentario, along with previously unreleased bonus tracks. Each LP is presented in its own cover and printed inner sleeve. Limited edition of 500. RIYL: Devo, DNA, The Contortions, Magma." - Spittle.

OM ENTERTRANCE. which one does....because the performance is a real "passage from the material to the spiritual" unless the "real" world is just as spiritual already which i like to think it is. As perhaps an everyday awareness is already to be entranced which i have been told it is, really. To the facts: musicians coming-in already the performance of everything has to be done to get ready from unpacking to tuning and all that is done in the concentrated and exalted spirit of real music. Multiplicity moves noise to instrument possibilities with virtuosity show-offs slowing down to a perfect tuning in a quiet circle from where there is nowhere else to go but the sustaining of a quiet long tone. My old friend and colleague also great composer Jim Fulkerson is there as he has be, as he was even at the first performance way back must be almost 50 years by now joining the Creative Associates at the University of Buffalo on his initiative as likewise these performances in Holland with his group he calls The Barton Workshop and for sure he is there playing trombone too. The movement from SANG/TEH (SITUATIONS). Guard duty in a cold Korean winter. This piece was a major turning-point in my work. My life too you-could-say. "Of Ancient Times and Modern Sounds" i wrote then: a better world---much much better---than being in the American Army. The heterophonic melody-only texture learned from their "Ah Ahk" court music ("Soo Je Chun" the most beautiful music in the history of the world!) imposed on a thoroughly modern chromatic note structure. Occidental instruments absorbing the traditions of subtle sound colours so-long absent from the West. Public performance in Seoul. That must have been the Spring of 1961 just before they "shipped me out", to bring all that back home. Before that the wonderful and exceptional opportunity to "run through" some of it with the indigenous instruments of the Koog Ahk Wun (National Music Institute) thanks to the cultural open-mindedness of the classical kayageum master Byungki Hwang. And Jim has not only played the 3rd movement often, but brought if back to Korea once at the Pan Music Festival. But my long-waiting-for performance in Korea on native instruments has yet to take place. The CHOPIN PRELUDE piece is one of two, reworking passages from his D Major Prelude for piano, and a part of the "as a revelation" series which "looks into" moments from the classics which usually go by too fast. Begun with Mozart, the series has "got a lot of mileage" out of Satie, as well as including Buxtehude, Bach, Rimsky-Korsakoff, Verdi, Ives, Berlioz,, and others." - Philip Corner, 2015.

Title: Murder By Guitar
Format: LP
Label: Superior Viaduct
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"San Franciscos first and only rock n roll band, Crime loomed over the entire Mabuhay Gardens scene with their blistering 1976 single Hot Wire My Heart. The groups loose, damaged rock n roll was as immediate as it was controversial. They were punk by any definition, yet shunned the label with a guttersnipe sneer. Their meticulously cultivated aesthetic of S&M graphics and police uniforms produced some of the eras most indelible imagery. One of their finest moves was playing in the San Quentin prison yard. Formed by guitarists / vocalists Johnny Strike and Frankie Fix, Crime enlisted bassist Ron the Ripper and drummers Ricky "Tractor" Williams (later of The Sleepers), Brittley Black and Hank Rank. Joey DKaye later joined on keyboards and bass duties. For the first time, this LP release collects the sick energy of Crimes three singles along with nine previously unreleased studio recordings from 1976 to 1980. The visceral churn and unwieldy leads on tracks like Frustration and Piss On Your Dog make Murder By Guitar the definitive statement from this prescient American underground band." - Superior Viaduct.

Format: 12"
Label: Rotorelief
Country: France
Price: $24.00
200-gram purple and white 12" version in deluxe heavy-duty sleeve. "When the May Rain Comes" is a cover of a track by German trio Sand, whose work has had a profound effect on David Tibets work. The track first appeared on Current 93s influential 1992 album Thunder Perfect Mind. It appears here with an alternate version of the same track, originally released as a CD single accompanying the first 1000 copies of Ultrasonic Seraphim (1996), David Tibet and Steven Stapletons collection of material by Sand. Current 93 is David Tibets eclectic, idiosyncratic, hallucinatory, apocalyptic artistic project, begun in 1982. David Tibet is the only person permanently present in the group, although Steven Stapleton of Nurse With Wound, whom David met in 1983 at Londons Equinox Event, has appeared on virtually all of Current 93s releases. David Tibet has worked with many individuals since he formed Current 93, including Michael Cashmore, Steve Ignorant (Crass), John Balance (Coil), Nick Cave, Marc Almond, Antony Hegarty, Sebastian Horsley, Andrew W.K., Rickie Lee Jones, Shirley Collins, and Bonnie "Prince" Billy. Current 93 has many faces, but has always primarily reflected David Tibets beliefs and obsessions. His vision continues to grow increasingly personal and intense, inspired by his translations of non-canonical Coptic and Gnostic texts. Other important influences upon his work have been the New Testament, the works of Count Stenbock, cats, the Kabbalah, seahorses, and Birdsong in the Empire.

Artist: CUSACK, PETER
Title: After Being In Holland For Two Years
Format: LP
Label: Blume
Country: Italy
Price: $23.00
“Peter Cusacks debut long-player from 1977 is a peek into one of the most varied and experimental musical scrapbooks one is likely to hear. Infused with natural sounds and a healthy dose of musical abstraction, this record defies categorization. A solo album of guitar and environmental sounds; a montage filled with montages where references to and resonances of varied, often disparate soundworlds spill in every direction. The music manages to be both blatant and covert at the same time; its clearly, acutely disjointed and polyvocal yet strangely out of focus in regard to intent. But thats the thing about montages: by having nothing lead causally, conventionally to the next, a radical, imaginary simultaneity occurs; one continues to experience the presence of each previous section (even though theyre no longer audible) even as a new one abruptly presents itself -- all this without the actual physical interference that happens with visual collage. After Being In Holland For Two Years is presented here for the first time since its initial pressing as a green LP in a Nagaoka anti-static record sleeve contained within a full-color sleeve with obi strip and fold-up tri-panel inner sleeve. This edition includes extensive new liner notes by Toronto-based composer-performer Martin Arnold -- writing that complements the utterly singular notes Cusack provided for the initial release, which are reproduced here as well. Peter Cusack is an improvising guitarist, field recording artist, and occasional whistler. He founded Bead Records in 1974 to release the only LP by A Touch Of The Sun, his short-lived duo with clarinetist Simon Mayo, but the label went on to become a collectively run initiative that produced more than 30 albums of improvised music. The following year he was among those who founded both the journal Musics and the London Musicians Collective, both of which were important focal points for Londons nascent improvising community. Cusack was a member of the eclectic freeform group Alterations with Steve Beresford, Terry Day, and David Toop, as well as their irreverent seaside covers spin-off The Promenaders. He formed significant musical relationships with instrument builder Max Eastley, multi-wind instrumentalist Clive Bell, vocalist Vivienne Corringham, and sampling trombone player and composer Nicholas Collins.” - Blume.

Title: First Burning Attraction

Country: UK

"Formed in 2009, Damien Dubrovnik is the Danish electronic duo of Christian Stadsgaard (Sarahs Charity) and Loke Rahbek (Sexdrome, Var, Lust For Youth), founders of the Copenhagen-based record label Posh Isolation. In their day-job as label managers, Stadsgaard and Rahbek have been instrumental in establishing the citys prolific and exciting noise/punk community and outgrowing their humble beginnings in noise/industrial culture by attracting a cult/fanatical worldwide following. Working together as Damien Dubrovnik, they have published work across two LPs, a handful of sought-after cassette releases, compilations and notched up numerous performances throughout Europe and Scandinavia. Their third LP, First Burning Attraction, draws explicitly from DIY minimal synth traditions and the canon of European industrial music, resulting in the strongest manifestation of their sound so far. Consisting of six powerful and varied tracks, the album features more of the brooding synth parts and ominous bass throbs that dominated the highlights of previous LP Europa Dagbog -- Europa Diary, yet it feels tenser and more atmospheric due to the application of new acoustic-based sound sources, primitive bass pulses and more disciplined dynamics. Rahbeks vocals, which were previously guttural and wild, appear more restrained here, giving the tracks an alluring air of ambiguity and suggestiveness -- no undirected aggression, but something more thoughtful and introspective instead. Mastered by Viktor Olsson and cut by Grammy Greg at Masterpiece studios in London, 2013." -Alter.

Format: LP
Label: Minimal Wave
Country: USA
Price: $24.00
"An album of long lost tracks by Dutch electronic music pioneer Das Ding, entitled Missing Tapes. Danny Bosten formed Das Ding as a solo project in the early 1980s and released his music and friends music via his own cassette label called Tear Apart Tapes. At the time, he was studying graphic design at art school, and in turn he ended up designing the artwork, cassette-sleeves and illustrations for the label himself. Meanwhile, he recorded his own music as Das Ding. Powerful dark electro, he made several addictive and danceable tracks which later become Minimal Wave hits. Danny made all his music in his bedroom which essentially turned into a small recording studio. He went on to release many of his own tapes and also played some live gigs. Old tapes were uncovered around 2010, and Minimal Wave released a remastered version of H.S.T.A. and select other tracks. A wave of renewed interest followed the records release and soon people were in touch to propose live shows. Twenty years later, and after some deliberation, Das Ding was reincarnated under its old moniker but now with a revised line-up and a working set-up that reflected inevitable technological change. Recently, Danny came across further tape archives from those early days. And from the batch, we selected our favorites to present to you in vinyl release form. Missing Tapes is a limited edition LP pressed on 180 gram creamy yellow vinyl, and housed in a heavy weight printed glossy black and white sleeve featuring one of Dannys original illustrations from 1982." - Minimal Wave.

Label: De Maria, Walter
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"..In 1957, (De Maria) graduated from the University of California at Berkeley, where he earned his M.F.A. in painting two years later. De Maria and his friend, the avant-garde composer La Monte Young, participated in Happenings and theatrical productions (including very early Fluxus events) in the San Francisco area. In 1960, De Maria moved to New York; here he wrote essays on art, which were published in 1963 in Youngs "An Anthology", and took part in Happenings and multimedia presentations. In 1961, he made his first wooden box sculptures. De Maria and Robert Whitman opened the Great Jones Street gallery in New York in 1963; the same year, De Marias first solo show of sculpture was presented there. This year, he worked as a drummer for the rock group The Velvet Underground. He continued to work in wood, began his "invisible drawings," and composed music. With the support of collector Robert C. Scull, De Maria started making pieces in metal in 1965. De Maria emerged as a leader of the Earthworks movement in 1968 when he filled the Galerie Heiner Friedrich in Munich with dirt. This year, he also made his The Mile Long Drawing in the Desert in the Mojave Desert for Walls in the Desert, a project, originally conceived in 1962, which is to consist of two parallel mile-long walls. In 1968, he also participated in Documenta in Kassel. A major exhibition of De Marias sculpture was held at the Kunstmuseum Basel in 1972. Earthworks and serial geometric sculpture continue to occupy De Maria in the 1970s: his Three Continent Project was completed in 1972 and the Lightning Field in New Mexico was finished in 1977. That same year, De Maria recreated his Earth Room at the Heiner Friedrich Gallery in New York. The artist lives in New York." -Guggenheim.

Self released CD (with almost no distribution) featuring De Marias tribal drumming mixed with field recordings (as the title implies). The two pieces, Cricket Music and Ocean Music, were originally recorded in 1964 and 1968 (evidently with some help from Tony Conrad). Restocked yet again... Very highly recommended!

Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Originally seeing the light of day in April of 1992, Harsh 70s Reality was not just a high water mark for that year, but for the ages. Technically this was the bands fourth long-play outing, and as a double-album, it followed (and was ever so slightly informed by) two formidable juggernauts that preceeded it: Twin Infinitives and Lake. But it was Harsh 70s Reality that left the decade stronger and more resonant than it came in. People say that rock music died with the passing of Kurt Cobain. But THE DEAD C slaughtered it in its sleep with this tremendous set of grinding thud. It is in every sense the ultimate post-rock album. To hear it is to understand why one scribe back in the day referred to their sound as "a garbage truck backing over the abyss." A legendary release from a legendary band on a legendary label. 20th anniversary edition of 1,000, this time with proper gatefold sleeve. Restored to the full length of the original vinyl release (no omitted tracks as on the CD).

Artist: DREAM/AKTION UNIT
Title: Blood Shadow Rampage
Format: CD
Label: Volcanic Tongue
Country: UK
Price: $17.50
"Volcanic Tongue is proud to present the first ever release by the Dream/Aktion Unit, a free-thinking avant garage Ur-kestra based around the central kernel of guitarist Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth), saxophonist Paul Flaherty and drummer Chris Corsano (Six Organs Of Admittance, Sunburned Hand Of The Man et al) and featuring Heather Leigh Murray (Taurpis Tula / Jandek / Charalambides) on pedal steel and vocals and Matt Heyner (No-Neck Blues Band/Test/Angelblood) on upright bass. The Dream/Aktion Unit were originally birthed as a side-project to allow Thurston Moore and Jim ORourke to fully explore the kind of ecstatic power blues that their work in Sonic Youth repeatedly implied. The addition of legendary New England saxophonist Paul Flaherty and powerhouse drummer Chris Corsano provided them with an umbilical connection straight to the source of modern musical freedom, while working to liberate them from previously articulated modes of known rock-speak. As a quartet, the group tore through a bunch of the USAs most winning festival spaces �? their ground-levelling F/X pedal assault at the De Stijl/Freedom From bash in Minneapolis in 2004 being a particular landmark - with both guitarists drawing creative sustenance from the kind of ego-obliterating drums/horn interaction previously articulated by players like The Reverend Frank Wright, Glenn Spearman, Denis Charles and Albert Ayler. Come 2005 �? with sub-underground modes enjoying a particularly unlikely shot in the sun �? The Dream/Aktion unit began to take on role of some kind spontaneous think-tank, with a revolving door policy towards membership and a commitment to the demands of the moment resulting in almost orchestral incarnations featuring members of Burning Star Core, Hair Police and Vampire Belt all pushing the hell out of the envelope. In May 2005 Moore, Flaherty and Corsano brought the Dream/Aktion Unit to Stirling, Scotland, for the final Le Weekend festival to be curated by David Keenan/Volcanic Tongue. With O�??Rourke permanently out of the picture due to various film and musical commitments, Matt Heyner aka Count Heynowski of NNCK and Heather Leigh of Taurpis Tula stepped up. The results were mind-blowing, with the quintet tearing through a non-stop gush of energy/ideas without resorting to base musical concerns like dialogue or listening with your ears. This was pure simultaneity at some kind of peak of flux. Moores role was key. He would move from these kind of suggestive, shepherding chords that would work lubes of motion into the back line, where Corsano and Heyner hooked up to such a degree that it was hard to separate their individual tonal and percussive points. They sounded like a friggin combine harvester. Murray and Flaherty were floating on their own particular plane, one that worked to reconcile the insane pulse of blood from the base of their spine with the juice of pure vision. Flaherty�??s sound touches on a whole bunch of jazz modes while re-situating the tradition somewhere way upwind of contemporary sound-as-thought while Heather Leighs exquisitely violent pedal steel stylings and free vocal improvisations seemed to touch on aspects of both Patty Waters, Lydia Lunch and Keiji Hainos flesh-extensions while resolutely refusing anything approaching previously-articulated tongue. The whole thing was recorded and mixed straight to 24 track and the results are what you have in your hands. The first ever document of the collective thought of what�??s easily the cream of the subterranean cup. Packaged in deluxe hard card gatefold sleeves with specially-commissioned eye-gouging video nasty-style artwork from Miss Karen Constance of Brighton aka Karen Lollypop of Blood Stereo/Smack Music 7/Chocolate Monk this is the first ever real CD release from Volcanic Tongue after a run of limited and highly collectable art-edition CD-Rs." - Volcanic Tongue.

"A very hot day in the hills above Los Angeles . . . only possible to work in the mornings because of the sweltering afternoon heat, so all a bit frantic, but with a kink in time. There is no wifi-controlled air conditioning; the car is electric-powered and charging up. It has barely rained for months, (if not years) and the hoses are working overtime. Its an analogue session; Marks modular synth set up is working furiously and overheating. We are pushing sounds through and seeing what works . . . and things gradually take shape. The forms seem to determine themselves; how much control do we have? How much do we want? Some peculiar things start to happen and the haze bends. Some of the sounds seem alive and are quick to reform as we struggle to contain them, like trying to stuff snakes into a bag. The sounds moan and sing, forming their own phonemes.

Artist: EMMANUEL, JD
Title: Electronic Minimal Music 1979-83
Format: Triple LP
Label: Black Sweat
Country: Italy
Price: $50.00
“The rediscovery of J D Emmanuel by critics and audience in the early 2010s and Emmanuels comeback to underground scene were crucial in reweaving the development of electronic music in the early 80s. This deluxe three-LP set casts new light on Emmanuels first activity of composing and performing electronic music in 1979-83, collecting experiments never before released on vinyl, some of which are previously unreleased in any form. Certainly seminal minimal works such as Four Organs (1970) and Violin Phase (1967) by Steve Reich and A Rainbow in Curved Air by Terry Riley (1969) -- as well as Cluster, Harmonia, and Peter Michael Hamels early-70s work -- had a decisive impact on Emmanuels debut. However, since his beginnings he has reshaped and reformulated his sources of inspiration with unparalleled maturity and accuracy of vision. His poetry is closely tied to the will to expand consciousness and explore altered states, but more than a cosmic traveler, he appears as a courier of soul and heart -- a self-described "student of the metaphysical nature of the Universe." Magician of an incredible variety of analog keyboards, Emmanuel conceives sound as dynamic translation of forces and organic, expanding flows of energy. The cyclicity of patterns and phrases refers to minimalist traditions, but his music has little in common with something purely mathematical; using an approach to improvisation colored by his interests in jazz and the temporal expansion of rock jams, he charges harmonic sections with an intimate spontaneity and freedom without boundaries. These 14 "vaporous drawings," presented with photos and writings, evoke a primordial state of grace in the listener, in parallel to Emmanuels contemporary ancestral work Wizards from 1982 (IMPREC 305CD). (This set contains two tracks that were initially included on the original Wizards release, but replaced by other tracks just before the final master.)” - Black Sweat.

Price: $31.00
Double LP version housed in a deluxe gatefold tip-on jacket and limited to 1000 copies. "Apostolic was many things: a label, a collective, a state of mind even. But before all of that, it was a recording studio set up by New Yorker John Townley. As a member of the Magicians, (you recognize that name from the Nuggets albums), Townley worked in some of the finest studios in the USA, but he felt he was on a conveyor belt. “You had to do the creation ahead of time, which is not my idea of a good time,” he says now. “You had all this stuff to play with, and you werent allowed to play with it.” When Townley came into an $85,000 inheritance he immediately invested in a loft building on 10th Street, New York, against the advice of, well, “everybody”. But there were fellow believers. Friends Matt Hoffman and Michael and Danny Weiss, heirs to the Weiss jewelry fortune, helped assemble the studio, which was built to bleeding-edge specifications and even had a 12-track recorder. Soon, it was attracting likeminded souls such as Frank Zappa, whose Mothers Of Invention recorded several landmark LPs at Apostolic. But the greatest example of the output of this artistic community is the sprawling double LP The Family of Apostolic. A utopian album inspired by global cultures ranging from Pakistani folk songs to Scottish traditional music and Chinese opera, it was made by a cast of 19, bonded by a desire to create “primitive performance art” from surrealist happenings. “The idea of Apostolic was that the whole operation was a family,” says Townley. “Anybody could do anything if they participated.” Despite the possibilities opened up by the studio and the chance to treat the desk as an instrument, The Family Of Apostolic is nonetheless a folk record at heart, and sounds downright spare in places. The experimentation was there in subtle ways, per Townleys desire for each song to be “like just a natural happening. We were trying to get a very close, upfront, live feeling.” Released under a deal with Vanguard, the rambling album proved too difficult to market. Singles were released under different artist names, serving only to confuse the public more. Soon the studio was heading down the tubes, thanks in part to Jimi Hendrixs multi-track studio Electric Lady opening two blocks away. And before long, the Apostolic dream was over. The album remains a curates egg, but one filled with delights. Opening track Redeemer asks, “O say, are you a true believer?” By the time youve listened to our deluxe reissue, you will be." - Future Days

2016 repress. "In 1971, Polydor entered a deal with Uwe Nettelbeck to assemble a musical ensemble that could compete with the likes of The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, and Small Faces. Before the release of their debut, Faust would send tapes to Polydor containing anything from studio experiments to recordings of someone washing dishes. Allmusic critic Archie Patterson lauded the bands accomplishment, writing that The impact of Faust cannot be overstated; their debut album was truly a revolutionary step forward in the progress of rock music. He awarded Faust four and a half out of five stars, concluding that the level of imagination is staggering, the concept is totally unique and its fun to listen to as well. The first 1971 Polydor (transparent) album and one of the great testaments to originality and innovation in the field, this album took two years to create, but in the 45 years since has come to be recognized as a breathtaking achievement, which hasnt aged. Remastered, repackaged for the ReR Megacorp release, which is also a part of the Faust Wumme Years Box Set." - Recommended.

(The school, you see, is actually an old house; the Ensemble presenting its work in the "living room".) So, he booked a hall on a local college campus for "Two Evenings of Improvised Music", wherein Milo Fine and Steve Gnitka, the nucleus of the Ensemble, collaborated with four of their most stalwart associates -- Scott Newell, John OBrien, Elliot Fine and Jason S. Shapiro -- in trio and quartet formats. He also made arrangements for the event to be recorded. Thus, this triple CD features the vast majority of the music played during those two evenings." - Shih Shih Wu Ai.

Chorus-less and catchy-as-hell, Love Canal features all that would become Flipper trademarks in four art-damaged minutes: knuckle-dragging tempo, ear-splitting feedback, basslines to crash your car to and a depraved frontman wailing about uncomfortable American matters.

"First ever vinyl edition of this album, originally released in NZ as a tiny cdr edition on Alastair Galbraiths Next Best Way label in 2008, four years before the release of Felt. Overall a more polarized and pleasantly tumultuous listen compared with the starkly beautiful Felt, but revealing just as much subtle grace. Playing out as though occasionally whipped by a salty wind, with gusts of psychedelic noise rising here & there to engulf these fragile poetic songs, sending them infinitely outward. A more externalized & expansive listening experience then the inward stillness of Felt, and a perfect mirrored pair to the later. These songs will beam deep into your unconscious before youve even realized you remembered them. The sound here is decidedly 4-track home-fi, with a gauzy analog mist ever present & the sounds of the environment gently creeping in. A largely solo affair, but with considerable & highly distinctive contributions from Alastair Galbraith, adding an electrified & disorienting edge. Truly wonderful stuff here, with plenty of that unique New Zealand magic. Raw, pure, and completely unforgettable? packaged in a totally hand assembled fold-out art paper cover with screen printed text & pasted artwork, nicely matching the Felt covers. Edition of 300 copies." - Time-Lag.

In addition there have been 3 self released CD-Rs and a CD on her own Sylph recordings. In the summer of 2008 Fursaxa started recording her seventh full length record Mycorrhizae Realm at Hexham Head studio in Philadelphia. This studio recording is a first, as all of the previous releases have been recorded at home on a four track. In addition to recording, Fursaxa has played live music at venues in the US, UK, and Europe, touring with Bardo Pond, Black Forest/Black Sea, Christina Carter, Jack Rose, Spires That in The Sunset Rise, and Brightblack Morning Light to name a few. Over the last couple of years Fursaxa has been collaborating more and more with other musicians as well. Espers member Helena Espvall and Tara have a duo called Anahita, and Sharron Kraus and Tara have the duo Tau Emerald. And in September of 2006 Fursaxa became part of The Valerie Project, which was a live soundtrack for the 1970 Czech film Valerie And Her Week Of Wonders. Tara really enjoyed playing with these musicians and decided to engage Greg Weeks, Mary Lattimore, and Helena Espvall, all fellow Valerians, for her next album. Greg recorded the album at his studio, Mary played harp on 4 songs and also co-wrote 2 of the songs, and Helena played cello on 3 songs. It is an exercise in symbiosis." - ATP.

"2014 release. Lucien Goethals was born in 1931 in Ghent, Belgium. He completed his musical education at the Royal Academy of Music in 1956 where he was awarded the highest accolades for advanced organ, history of music, and theoretic notions, after which he eventually pursued his studies of seriated music technique and electronic composition with G.M. Koenig. He was awarded further awards for composition in both his own country as well as abroad, and was a member of the renowned Spectra work group. In 1963 he was appointed to the post of producer of the BRT (Flemish division of the Belgian Broadcasting and Television System) and later a key producer in the division known as IPEM (Institute for psycho-acoustics and electronic music). From 1971 he taught musical analysis at the Music Academy of Ghent. Goethals was an exponent of the stricter direction in the aesthetics of contemporary music. His work is still recognized as a valuable contribution, on a global scale, to the fields of seriated and trans-aleatoric music of the past half century. His recorded achievements within experimental music include a dozen rare compositions for solo "magnetophonic" music and a set of works for combined orthodox instruments with magnétaphone. Outside of the electronic field, Goethals was also recognized for his chamber music, symphonic orchestration, cantata, and lied compositions. This compendium focuses on Luciens magnetophonic work. Features a translation of the original track notes that accompanied the original limited Belgian pressing.” - Cacophonic.

Curiousness and initiative is all. And attack. The attack mode. 6 Swedes attacking it all with a front of 3 sax players not holding back. Attacking the mystery of it all. 6 defined personalities and creative voices with feet and minds in jazz, improvised music and related experimental matters. Togetherness. A real unit of creativity. Of poetic beauty. Anna Högberg as a modern free jazz standard bearer keeping it all together – her rich alto sax leading the ensemble into layers of high octane outbursts and sensational melodic variations. Her tone being able to cut landscapes open, to melt your brain as we know it. Check the two tenor sax axes out! Elin Forkelid Larsson and Malin Wättring knows how to attack matters – how to structure solos and ensemble work with intense warmth and melodic beauty. Seldom have I heard such warm and rich sounding tenors in Scandinavia. The time is here. The attack attack! Drummer Anna Lund punctuating the flow… attacking it all. Laying fundaments of possibilities for the others. The attack attack! Pianist Lisa Ullén adding her thorny, but detailed phrases to the picture. The picture of the attack attack. And last but not least. The attack attack of deep sounding bass maestro Elsa Bergman. With an unusaul imagination of how to position her own language and bass lines into a collective of attacking free jazz. Freeing the jazz. Attacking the jazz. The attack attack!” - Mats Gustafsson.

"Matthew P. Hopkinss Blue-Lit Half Breath, his second full-length for Penultimate Press, presents a curious and compelling listen that harnesses his deeply personal and paranoid vision into the ultimate beauty/horror object. Since the mid-2000s Hopkins has distinguished himself as master of multiple musical forms including bent song, freeform concrète, improvised electronics, and techno. Under his own name he has produced a most singular take on abstracted voice, feedback, field recordings, and found sounds. With Blue-Lit Half Breath Hopkins furthers his domestic inquiry into subconscious sounds with a series of vignettes that hover between hissing clunk, atmospheric creep, and improvised piano refrains. Among all this the voice of Hopkins appears throughout as a shadowy narrator delightfully disturbing the sonic play. Blue-Lit Half Breath is a late-night-oil-burning masterpiece that resides within a zone orbiting its own logic. 180-gram LP in glossy sleeve. Edition of 500." - Penultimate Press.

The Hototogisu are obviously seasoned sonic travelers, featuring the seminal legend Matthew Bower (Skullflower, Sunroof!) and Marcia Bassett (Double Leopards). Ghosts From The Sun is one enormous composition, nearing two hours in length, unfolded and nailed together in seven movements. Starting with a slow drone electronic crawl and climaxing with crackling bone percussion buried howls of haunted minds, Ghosts Of The Sun cries out from beneath an earthquake of guitar feedback and distortion. Ghosts Of The Sun compresses eternity, from the creation of humanity to its own destruction, into seven parts on one double album. This is epic and total sonic overload, by way of The Hototogisu." - Important.

"Reissue of Rolf Julius first and only LP from 1985. "ROLF JULIUS (1939-2011) was the archetypal “sound artist“. He painted with sound, he colored with pitch, and his work demands the attention and open-mindedness of those who embrace modern art. He collected found sounds, and mixed them with prerecorded single tone notes which were then, electronically modified and filtered through tiny loudspeakers, transformed into music. Depending on the surface texture where the loudspeaker has been placed - wall, floor or outdoors - these objects resonate and “breathe“ sound. His music is a mixture of all these sounds; a carefully calculated and conceived creation. He sculpted sound to define space, creating a musical environment where subtle changes occur.

"Before appearing in his works as a musician, Ariel Kalma seems to reveal himself as a philosopher; a solitary explorer of higher and deeper consciousness. Influenced by his relationship with Indian classical music, he transfigures the acoustic-ecstatic dimension typical of the tanpura raga by modulating synths and horns. The work reissued here originally appeared on two different cassettes in 1981 and 1982, but is ideally one unique project. With Musique Pour le Rêve et lAmour, Kalma infinitely expands the reverberations of the flute, multiplying the nuances with phasing organ loops that recall the beginnings of Terry Riley. The second part, Music for Dream and Love, is structured like a oceanic carpet of aquatic, airy, reflective sounds; an unlimited shore from which there seem to emerge voices of celestial entities." - Black Sweat.

"I listen to various music. I am not so interested in a lot of stylized drone music and the harsh noises. These sounds are agreeable. I keep away ease. I want to stimulate the sense by uncomfortable. I am not basically interested in drone music and the harsh noises though there is exceptions such as Hermann Nitsch and I.Dumitrescu. These are music that pierces, is moved to karma, and purifies it and is repeated. However, I like music that the uniqueness of the brain of the person who makes the sound can be looked and know.

"Sam Kidels debut for The Death of Rave is a deft subversion of Muzaks meaning, application and affect, employing government call centers as unwitting agents in a stroke of Cagean and Kafka-esque compositional genius. Its a remarkably innovative, emotive and incisive 20 minute sound piece (with an additional 20 minute version on the other side) that reflects and refracts an aspect of the modern world in a way that arguably few other records have achieved. In aesthetic, Disruptive Muzak highlights a range of ambient, electro-acoustic and aleatoric composition techniques intersecting classical minimalism, dub and vaporwave spheres, all whilst revealing a spectrum of regional British accents commonly heard in call centers, yet seldom heard on record, certainly in this context. Disruptive Muzak also questions our relationship with music and technology, economics and socio-politics. By subtly but straight-facedly inverting the delivery and reception of Muzak, Kidel subverts its meaning, hypnotically suspending the listener in its lush, lingering sub bass swoops and piano motifs but, paradoxically beckoning the call center staff and us listeners to pay attention to the subtext of what is normally considered background sound or noise. Make no mistake, though: the artist is definitely not taking the piss out of call center workers; if anything hes highlighting a dreamy melancholy and detachment in their tedious roles and tortuous systems, one known from first-hand experience. The way in which Kidel executes the idea, both musically and conceptually, is little short of breathtakingly emotive and cathartic. Mastered and cut to vinyl by Matt Colton at Alchemy." - The Death of Rave.
"This piece came about during a research project into Muzak in 2015... Research by the Muzak Corporation found that Muzak must sound familiar, predictable, and non-disruptive to be effective. Drawing from this research, I composed a series of pieces that I call Disruptive Muzak. These pieces share a similar sound palette to Muzak, but their structure is less familiar, less predictable and more disruptive. To test these compositions I called up government offices that use Muzak in their telephone queues and played them down the phone instead of my voice. The music I played and the officials responses were recorded and assembled into the piece that you hear on Side A. Side B contains the music only, that can be used to DIY." -Sam Kidel, 2016.

"180-gram LP in reverse-board card sleeve with printed inner sleeve. Rabbit Eclipse is the second full-length recording from the legendary Księżyc, following their self-titled debut from 1996. The Moon never went away. The 2013 Penultimate Press reissue of Księżycs timeless debut exposed the band to a large new audience, resulting in a return to live performance and the subsequent development of new material. Rabbit Eclipse was recorded in Warsaw from May through September 2015 within the idyllic Palladian palace Królikarnia ("The Rabbit House"). All original members gathered to conjure the peculiar hybrid of the ancient and the contemporary unique to the band. Rabbit Eclipse presents a rich and subtle environment of beguiling narratives hanging in suspended tension. This opens up an entirely new phase in the cycle of the band where an enchanting discrete musical continuum of rich and subtle sound excursions is enveloped in a mysterious melancholia. Another exemplary presentation from one of Polands most idiosyncratic and respected outfits." - Penultimate Press.

“Due to lack of funds, the album was originally issued by the band in a primitive hand-made sleeve with just a sticker on front and a paper sheet with the credits glued on back. For the vinyl version of this first-ever legit reissue, Out-Sider has produced a printed sleeve with embossed letters on the front, as the band originally intended. U.S. basement psych-prog monster released in 1979 as an ultra-rare private pressing of 200 copies. MacArthur were formed when a young guitar player and songwriter named Ben MacArthur met a 17-year old prodigy musician called Bill Heffelfinger in Saginaw, Michigan, in 1978. Bill was not only a gifted guitar player but also a genius arranger and keyboard wizard. When Ben showed him some of the stuff he had written, Bill took the songs and transformed them into classic pieces of music. They soon recruited Jeff Bauer on bass and Scott Stockford on drums. The chemistry of MacArthur was born. The first MacArthur album, known in collectors circles as The Black Forest due to the vinyl bootleg of the same title released in the 80s, was recorded in 1979 using a four-track machine. Produced by Bill Heffelfinger, MacArthur is a progressive/psychedelic concept album highlighted by devastating, ripping fuzz guitar solos and Mini-Moog/synths attacks.” - Out-Sider.

Title: Hello New York
Format: LP
Label: OSR Tapes
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
“Tori Kudo and Reiko Kudo began Maher Shalal Hash Baz in the mid-80s & it has grown since into a multi-continental concern with a changing cast of true members of varying background & experience . as usual , any brief synopsis would be defective & by way of introduction you would be best advised to listen to the many extant recordings on youtube & read the many & comprehensive interviews published over the years . their first full-length record since 2009s Cest La Derniere Chanson , Hello New York was recorded in September 2014 when nearly a dozen members of Maher coalesced in New York for the occasion of a 30th anniversary gig . we holed up here at the sweltering Manual FX basement and worked for the majority of their stay on my deficient rig , joined intermittently by a gaggle of superfans like myself who couldnt pass up the opportunity to throw down a few notes on a Maher record (its unfashionable to wax autobiographical in this context but I will say that Maher was one principal light that brought me into music as a younger youngster & gave me the hope necessary to start this sort of enterprise in a dim world of hollow culture)
Maher is often represented incorrectly by the Western press , who have typically lampooned its lack of traditional musical dramaturgy as a kind of "naivist" aestheticism & its emphasis on miracular playing as a sign of its instrumentalists deficiency , and refused to see the communal nature of the group & the nonlinear relationship between Toris composition & the groups playing . in fact , what is really unusual about Maher isnt any one specific quality or principle , but the extreme reverence appreciable in the music for what is beyond words and available only in experience , and a concomittant indeterminacy on all levels , always busy in the middle : composition v. improvisation , the page v. the ear , the group v. the writer , style v. content , the beyond v. the worldly , etc... Tori is drawn to spiritual themes , with many lyrics adapted from Bible verse , not as an aesthetic conceit but as one tool for working through this life . actually , the bands Western aestheticization is ironic given the direct critical treatment Toris lyrics give to that sort of process (see "Epignosis" with its "the 60s carries weight with you // you like it better than your wife , son , brothers & sisters") ... but enough of that sort of talk . we all did our best on this revelatory rock record & I will always remember it !” - OSR.

Title: Psyche De Loid
Format: LP
Label: New Records
Country: Spain
Price: $27.00
“Munehiro Narita, the original "psychedelic speed freak," is for many people the undisputed king of acid-fuzz guitar. Active since the late 70s, Narita is a Japanese psychedelic underground legend. After playing in cult bands like Kyoaku no Intention, he founded the brutal heavy-psych power trio High Rise in the 80s. His furious guitar playing, which involves lethal doses of fuzz-wah at earsplitting volume, can also be heard on his current band Green Flames (featuring Mitsuru Tabata from Acid Mothers Temple). In 2014 Narita released a Japanese-only CD titled Psyche De Loid, doing heavy guitar fuzzed-out covers of classic psych songs from the 60s/70s. But Psyche De Loid was also the first-ever psychedelic album recorded using Vocaloid technology. Very popular in Japan, Vocaloid is a software/singing synthesizer -- one enters the lyrics of a song into the program and adds music to generate a Vocaloid -- or "Vocal Android" -- which sing in bizarre, mostly female, android-type vocals. Vocaloid is often associated with J-pop but on Psyche De Loid Narita smashes this genre into a wall with the contrast of killer, Ron Asheton-like piercing fuzz-wah guitar and child-like android vocals, featuring surreal covers of tracks by The Stooges, Hendrix, Blue Cheer, Shocking Blue, Pink Floyd, MC5, Jefferson Airplane. . . . Previously available as a Japanese-only CD, this is the first-ever vinyl edition with new artwork.” - New Records.

Artist: NEUTRAL
Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Omlott
Country: Sweden
Price: $23.00
Edition of 500. Neutral is the duo of Dan Johansson (Sewer Election, etc) and Sofie Herner (Enhet För Fri Musik). “In a sweaty art space open to no one and just a stones throw away from the Utmarken venue where it all in more than one way kind of began, Neutral did their first show in front of maybe 25 people. The free jazz drummer Peeter Uuskyla opened the night with a shimmering set of absurd, life-elevating bliss and Neutral just ripped it all apart. There and then sort of Gothenburg underground ground zero, or more like ground nothing. New beginnings and grey waves of something very exciting. Its been close to 2 years now but its one of those nights that I will remember forever. Since then Ive seen Neutral on several occasions and its always been a pleasure, always refining their craft but at the same time shredding the improvement to tiny pieces with every heartbeat. Its like they are taking one step forward and two steps back with every minute they produce, and in a very rare and weird way getting better and more interesting doing so. The untitled second album, following up Grå Våg Gamlestaden (Omlott, 2014), does just that. It takes everything that made the debut album so special and puts it in a rusty meat grinder, taking a piss on the deconstructed mess and puts it together again, piece by piece. The formula might be almost identical, but the final outcome is different. Where the debut was immediate and fairly easy to resonate with, the new album is almost impossible to penetrate at first. You can sense that theres something resembling a ragged beauty somewhere, but its hard to reach. Its like Neutral deliberately placed various obstacles along the way, fucking with everyones expectations and rightfully so. Still, after each time spent with those 35 minutes things will slowly unfold themselves and there you are, pleased with one of the most fully realized and beautiful recordings to ever come from the shitfaced Utmarken camp of misunderstood geniuses. Yeah, I actually heard them all. Neutral manages to connect the dots between everything from Chrome and Siltbreezian gold from the 90s to the more experimental sides of Dome, while throwing in some tape work that could only originate from Gothenburg and brutish guitar playing bringing JFK, Skullflower and maybe even rock-era Ramleh to mind at times. Lets not forget the mysterious field recordings scattered along the way, and Sofie Herners dry, talked vocals, leading at least this listener to the realization that theres no end to this fucking winter.” - Matthias Andersson.

Artist: NOVAGA, ALESSANDRA
Title: Movimenti Lunari
Format: LP
Label: Blume
Country: Italy
Price: $23.00
“Alessandra Novaga delivers a stunning LP, a compelling investigation of her resonantly spacious guitar playing that dismantles the instruments unique properties through relentlessness. Movimenti Lunari speaks of the relentlessness of natural forces. Something that seems to have no development, but instead advances inexorably. A form developing out of a memory progressively coming into focus; never still, constantly pulsating and vibrating with new elements. Beyond any rational, analytic thought, a sound that belongs to remembrance. Sandro Mussidas "In Memoria" questions this relationship between movement and stillness in the form of a piece of music. The piece is a meditation on memory, technology, and sound; the repeating theme recalls bells chiming over and over, drawn out into lines as long as the horizon. Francesco Gagliardis "Untitled, January" speaks of a sound evoked by an image. A photograph. A foggy landscape seen from a train. Accompanied by a single instruction: "A drone, or drones. Any duration." Simultaneously timely and timeless, Movimenti Lunari has the feel of artistic invention, a canvas of delicacy melding into intense streams of sound. Includes obi strip.” - Blume.

Artist: OMALLEY, STEPHEN
Title: End Ground
Format: LP
Label: Ideal
Country: Sweden
Price: $25.00
“End Ground forms the 3rd and final installment in a series of records documenting the solo prowess of Sunn 0)))s Stephen OMalley released on Swedens iDEAL Recordings. It was performed on electric guitar thru Sunn model T amps, and captured on zoom H4 at Centre Cultural Suisse, Bad Bonn Carte Blanche, Paris, France, on October 18th, 2013. In solo mode, stripped of his usual accomplices and collaborators, OMalley is no less than an elemental force. His durational meditations absorb and consume with steady-handed wave after wave of charred, sustained, and sub-harmonized chords casting the mesmerizing minimalist practice of La Monte Young into the physicality of Black Sabbaths original, heavy metal die. The A-side/first half of this 45 minute performance features OMalley tentatively coaxing out languorous riffs which turn the air around him to a pensive, vibrating mush. As the 2nd half dawns he begins to deliver more crushing blows, drawing out and subsiding the chords with a patented, gut-wrenching and vivifying power that transcends rock, avant-garde, minimalism -- all of that -- to awaken dormant senses not usually experienced with other musics or concise temporality. As with many of the most affective heavy drone recordings by Sunn 0))), among others, a modicum of patience is required in order to attain the right state for reception, but once your mind and body are malleable, the impact is deliciously visceral, primal and whelming. Mastered and cut by Matt Colton. Individually hand-numbered edition of 700 copies.” - Ideal.

Artist: RED SQUARE
Title: Rare and Lost 70s Recordings
Format: LP
Label: Mental Experience
Country: Spain
Price: $27.00
“Ultra-rare recordings by 70s UK avant-rockers Red Square, the missing link between original free-noise practitioners like AMM, Nihilist Spasm Band, and Peter Brotzmann and post-no wavers à la The Blue Humans, Borbetomagus, Fushitsusha, and The Dead C. Named after the early Soviet Constructivists, Red Square is a pioneering free-improvising, avant-rock band. They bridged the worlds of psychedelic rock, noise, and avant-jazz, and many of the techniques and approaches to music that they helped to pioneer have become common practice today. Predating Sonic Youth by seven years, Last Exit by a decade, and Mats Gustafssons The Thing by 25, their railing aural assaults were once considered too extreme for commercial release. Formed in Southend-On-Sea in 1974 by guitar player Ian Staples (fresh from gigging at the Middle Earth club with Ginger Johnsons African Drummers and sharing stages with Pink Floyd and Marc Bolan among others), bass clarinet/sax player Jon Seagroatt, and free-jazz drummer Roger Telford, their unusual sound was an amalgam of jazz, improv, and avant-rock, fueled by the loud electric guitar of Ian Staples, whose style has been described as a "revolutionary blend of Hendrix and Beefheart, with the sonic palettes of Derek Bailey and Stockhausen." Stapless atonal guitar riffs referenced metal without ever becoming metal. Red Square shared stages with Henry Cow, Lol Coxhill, David Toop, and National Health, and they were also involved with Music For Socialism. But their extreme sound and attitude were too much for both audience and record companies. The band imploded in 1978 with only two ultra-rare private cassette releases as their only legacy. In 2008, they reformed again and theyre still playing and recording as of 2016. Rare and Lost 70s Recordings includes a complete never-before-heard heavy studio session from 1978 plus a thunderous live set opening for fellow "rock in opposition" mavens Henry Cow, recorded in perfect sound quality in 1976. Remastered by original member Jon Seagroatt (who is playing/touring with 70s pagan-folk gods Comus and Current 93 at the time of this release). Includes insert with liner notes and photos.

Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"Originally issued on CD in 2007 by the late Tony Dales superb Camera Obscura label, the debut album by Rusalnaia is one of the lost classics of contemporary folk music. This is Rusalnaias first appearance on vinyl, and we believe it will spin a lot of heads who missed out on it the first time around. The duo is made up of two formidable solo performers -- Englands Sharron Kraus and Philadelphias Gillian Chadwick, both of whom have unleashed massive solo recordings over the years. Neither of them has ever sounded quite as weirdly rural and psychedelic as they do here, however. Something about the way their voices and instruments combine with Greg Weekss production (and occasional instrumental additions) give this album a bewitching aura that recalls a host of trad/psych folk-rattlers of the early 70s, from Trees to Comus to Spriguns and even the Watersons at their most whacked. Having listened to this album maybe 50 times, its still hard to figure out how exactly it creates its celebratory fog, but it does. The songs sometimes have the feel of traditional pagan hymns, at others they could almost be outtakes from a lost, early Sandy Denny album. There is no doubt in my mind that this is one of the great overlooked gems of the last twenty years. It is our pleasure to help you rediscover it.

“I first heard of SAND ten years ago, when I noticed a copy of an album entitled Golem in Steven Stapletons vast collection. I was - and am still - a great admirer of the works of Gustav Meyrinck, whose novel Der Golem is his most famous publication, and which inspired the wondrous film of the same title directed by Paul Wegener. I hoped the record may have been a muscial evocation of the book. it wasnt, but was instead an album of haunting, dreamlike songs, quite unlike anything I had heard then, or have heard since. The album obsessed me, and i eventually tracked a copy down for myself with the assistance of Edward Ka-Spel, another connoisseur of this scarce recording, and it established itlsef in my Top Ten Albums Ever. I listened to the album again and again, trying to work out just how SAND - a group whom, as far as I knew at that time, had done this one album and then disappeared forever - had created this most bizarre ghost of a sound. At one point John Balance of Coil and i discussed doing a remake of the entire album, but decided it would be impossible to equal it. teh only attempt we made was on "May Rain", which turned up on Current 93s Thunder Perfect Mind album in 1992. I had tried, on and off, to get in touch with any of SAND, but no-one seemed to know who they were, never mind where they were. Eventually Steven and Alan Freeman, Krautrock experts, editors of the Audion magazine and proprietors of the Ultima Thule shop, gave me the telephone number of Klaus Müller, the manager of Klaus Schulze, who had recorded the album for SAND in 1974. Klaus Müller at first thought I was trying to arrange an interview with the group, and patiently pointed out there was no point in interviewing them as they were no longer together. I explained that my wish was to release the album, not to interview them, and Klause swiftly came back to me with Johannes Vesters number in Berlin. I went there to meet him, and he played me a vast array of extra material that they had recorded towards Golem, as well as his unreleased solo album, Born At Dawn, recorded under the wonderful name of Johannes Vester And His Vester Bester Tester Electric Folk Orchestra, and hours of music recorded with P.O.T. and his friends in the still earlier halcyon hippy days. There had been several near-meetings between Steven, Johannes and myself, it transpired: Johannes had once lived just behind in a house just behind mine when I was involved with Psychic TV; and had once holidayed in Eire and walked up the mountain behind Steven Stapletons house, situated in the wilds of ireland. he had visited Rough Trade Distribution in 1983 with copies of the ALU record, and had just left the shop - Johannes had taken a photograph of the warehouse and asked me if I knew the person staring out of the image: it was Douglas P. of Death In June! All proof that we were destined to meet and that, ten years after first marvelling at Golem, Steven and myself could release it on United Durtro, VerySound of VerySand.” - David Tibet, TinyLand, 16 April 1996.

"The present album is a reissue of Golem, the legendary album from the cosmic and psychedelic genius that is Sand. Factory-noise, riveting hammers from the dockyards, agricultural machines, Starfighters low level flights, land manoeuvres by the British Forces in the mountainous countryside along the winding river were the culture medium for extended sound aesthetics. Sand was born and created the GOLEM.
At first Sand dressed the Golem with Helicopter and dir ected him to walk ahead.
Rotorelief releases, from 2010, a series of new albums from Sand as well as a reissue of their obscure and rare album Golem.

Title: Symphone Pour Un Homme Seul - Concerto Des Ambiguites
Format: LP
Label: Modern Silence
Country: Malta
Price: $27.00
"Electronic/avant-garde music pioneer and founder of the French musique concrète movement, Pierre Schaeffer, a radio engineer, believed that any sound could be music, and was one of the first to experiment with tape looping, splicing and sampling. He was also one of the first to record music on magnetic tape. Drawing inspiration from the Italian Futurists, he emphasized the double meaning of the word "play", meaning to play an instrument, but also to have fun and enjoy oneself. Pierre Henry, a classically trained musician, was one of Schaeffers disciples and together they co-wrote the revolutionary "Symphonie Pour Un Homme Seul", recorded in 1950. Despite its title, it is not a symphony in the classical sense, but a kind of suite divided into 12 movements. It is a musical collage featuring vocal fragments, that are at times recorded backwards, accelerated or repeated, and other sounds like whistles, footsteps, doors slamming, metallic sounds, and a prepared piano. However, what is important about this piece is not merely its intrinsic musical value, but its influence on so many future generations of musicians in so many genres. "Symphonie Pour Un Homme Seul", over half a century later, remains a pioneering experiment in the search for new aural horizons. The Concerto side reveals Henrys personal approach to dissonance, with a strong impact of illogical sequences in the piano "duel": the two instruments seem to collide in a furious rejection of the traditional idea of music, generating a clash of noises that reproduce the sonic pollution of the modern times.
"Symphonie Pour Un Homme Seul" (1949-1950 - First concert performance on March 18, 1950, at the Auditorium of the Ecole Normale de Musique in Paris. First performance as a ballet by Maurice Béjart on July 26, 1955, at the Théâtre de lEtoile in Paris. "Concerto des ambiguïtés for piano and piano" (1950) - First performance on August 7, 1950, over the French National Radio. Coreographic version by Maurice Béjart under the title "Voyage au cur dun enfant (Trip Into The Heart Of A Child)", first performed on September 6, 1955, with Patrick Benda, at the Théâtre de lEtoile in Paris." - Modern Silence.

Title: Erda/Suite N
Format: LP
Label: Recollection GRM
Country: Austria
Price: $23.00
“Erda (1972): "This piece illustrates my early research carried out in a professional composition studio. After studying every available tools and creating variably hybrid connections between them, I chose to compose several short sequences, each being the expression of a research based on a sonic manipulation and exploring a well defined sound hue. Besides, my background as a percussionist and a jazzman encouraged me to conduct a rhythmical study in each of these sequences. . . . The slightly raucous and acid texture of the “square” sounds, that can be heard in several movements, is a reminder of saxophone and muted brass sonorities, as used in contemporary jazz." The seven movements include "an evocation of the realm of insects," "stereotypical bird songs produced by the generators of the studio 54," "a tribute to the Goddess of Wisdom and the Earth in Wagners Das Rheingold and Siegfried," "rhythmical drumming figures such as those Kenny Clarke (aka Klook) used to teach me," and "a tribute to John Coltrane," among others.
Suite N (1982): "Commissioned by the Direction de la Musique and the Ina GRM. Composed in the Ina GRMs numerical composition studio with the assistance of Benedict Maillard and Yann Geslin. In a composition studio, musical research is never very far removed from madness. The first step is the initial work on the sound picked up by the microphone and the varieties of delirium that result from it: exaggerated amplification, inversion, transformation. Synthesizers and their crazy possibilities com next. The third step is the computer, one of the purest products of logic. . . . My intention in “Suite N” was, on the one hand, to use solely sounds produced by the computer either by direct synthesis (MUSIC V) or by sound treatment, and, on the other hand, to work with a definite form." - Recollection GRM.
"Jean Schwarz is an idiosyncratic figure in the world of electroacoustic music. With a dual background in jazz and ethnomusicology, he has crossed times and genres with an unwavering singularity, infusing improvisation, ballets or cinema with the art of acousmatics. “Erda” or “Suite N,” each in their own way, demonstrate Schwarzs unique propensity for exploring sound, its cross-fertilisations and its evocative power." - François Bonnet, Paris, 2015.

Format: LP

Country: UK
Price: $26.00
“2016 repress; originally reissued in 2006. Bearing all the aesthetic watermarks of a private-press country LP, Selda Bağcans 1976 debut long-player is a stunning work of space-age Anatolian electronic, progressive protest-psych-folk-funk-rock; a delectable hybrid concoction, presented with the utmost authenticity and conviction, which has never been replicated or equaled in the decades since its recording. When Selda first released her long-awaited LP (the first of two confusingly eponymous titles released the same year), she was enduring/enjoying her halcyon time as one of Turkeys most politically outspoken popular folk singers. In the previous decade she had made a household name for herself as a traditional Anadolu protest singer with a spectacular emotive vocal capacity (for idle arguments sake, begging comparison to a TurkishJoan Baez). A figurehead and poetic driving force for a radical generation of politically motivated, creative revolutionaries, she sang raw, stripped-down folk songs with a yearning for political change and a heart-wrenching earnestness. On her debut LP, in a match made in psychedelic heaven, Seldas radical prose fuses with equally radical musical gestures from some of the most lauded musical mavericks, including Anadolu beat combo Moğollar (also known to a growing French audience as Les Mogol), popular backing band Dadaşlar under the guidance of Anatolian rock stalwart Arif Sağ, and master electronic producer and pioneer Zafer Dilek. The bands were assembled at multiple sessions at Yeni Studios and the über-legendary Studio Elektronik, where the record was finally completed and mastered. Released in 1976 to equal parts critical acclaim and skepticism, the album smashed boundaries both lyrically and musically. It begs comparison to the second LP by post-folk sibling trio 3 Hür-El (GUESS 056LP), who used a balance of electronically treated saz and proto-polyphonic synthesizers to similar effect (exemplified here on tracks such as "Gitme" and "Yaz Gazeteci Yaz"). However, the fact that Selda was one of the few female voices to adopt the use of such cutting-edge techniques puts the LP in a league of its very own. Anatolian progressive rock has since gained popularity among DJs, producers, and record collectors as an unrivalled source for unique sounds rarely found in other genres of international music, and the artists involved in the recording of this LP, all of whom continued to record radical and experimental music, are considered the cream of the crop among Eastern psych aficionados. Includes two bonus tracks from the album sessions.” - Finders Keepers.

Comes with bigger inlay with extensive liner notes by Matthias Andersson. Released in 350 copies.” - Jartecknet.
“Instigated with “Kassettmusik” (iDEAL, 2008) and its suffocating minimalism, carefully elaborated into the brutish musique concréte of “Bristning” (RTB, 2009) to later fully blossom into the crude reel-to-reel odysseys of “Vidöppna Sår” (PAN, 2010) and “Vittra Sönder” (Throne Heap, 2012), “Nära” pretty much feels like the perfect culmination of the Sewer Election explorations of the last five years or so. Perhaps the most laid back and mellow Sewer Election so far, “Nära” blends the now very beautifully executed tape-manipulations with sparse oscillating tones and a heavy but at the same time subtle use of everyday life recordings from the near surroundings.” - Matthias Andersson, Fördämning Fanzine, April 2014.

This was the starting point for the group with likeminded associates Nikke Ström and Kjell Westling. In 1975 we recorded the minor classic album Spjärnsvallet together. Some material that was not released then or was shortened to fit the LP format make up the main part of this album plus a recording the three of us did just now: AGAIN – in remembrance of deceased multi instrument genius Kjell Westling, where we improvise around a couple of the tunes we used to play 40 years back." - Spjärnsvallet.

"Dallas, Texas Stick Men With Ray Guns was one of the most caustic and dangerous punk bands to ever exist, casting a long shadow that continues to darken those who stumble in out of the sun. Performing for much of the 1980s, the band lived to antagonize audiences (and one another) in a twisted display of love that showcased their departed frontman Bobby Soxxs vehemently anti-Christian views, radical art, and twist of self-destruction. Guitarist Clarke Blacker could bend two chords into a hateful dirge and a complete breakdown of musical structure. The rhythm section of bassist Bob Beeman and drummer Scott Elam perfected the midnight thud of interminable tempos that extended time for the purpose of putting the boot down on unsuspecting crowd members throats. Violence at their shows was always anticipated, and the group built up a powerful reputation for their live presence and transgressive content without ever leaving their home state. They have no equal in modern music and likely never will, though many have and will get part of the way there. Stick Men With Ray Guns never released a proper record in their own time. This is where End of an Ear comes in with Grave City, the premiere release on the beloved Austin, TXs record stores new imprint. Together for the first time, here is every single studio track that was ever recorded by Stick Men With Ray Guns along with the two live tracks (plus one bonus track) as originally released on the four compilations: A Texas Trip, Live at the Hot Klub, Cottage Cheese From the Lips of Death, and Tales From the Edge Volumes 5 & 6.

Artist: TUSQUES, FRANCOIS
Title: La Reine Des Vampires 1967
Format: LP
Label: Cacophonic
Country: UK
Price: $26.00
"2014 release. As a central figure of one of Europes most vibrant inter-communal music movements, François Tusquess involvement as a central figure in the French free jazz scene (alongside Barney Wilen, Jean-François Jenny-Clark, and Jacques Thollot) is as indispensable as it is synonymous. As the first release in a series of long-overdue reissues and vintage archival debuts, Cacophonic presents this presumed lost, previously unreleased studio session from 1967, which sees the cross-pollination of two of Frances most exciting counter-culture families, combining the open music of Tusques and the moving image of experimental horror director Jean Rollin. This cinematic debut for both parties commenced in 1967 under the working title La Reine Des Vampires before being distributed and commonly (inaccurately) recognized as "Frances first vampire film" under the title Viol Du Vampire. Staying faithful to the projects original title and intention, this dedicated audio release hears the original unedited performance in its original form before Rollins sound editors got to work with their ruthless tape splicers, dialogue synchronization, and recycling tactics. La Reine Des Vampires features an all-star line-up of Barney Wilen, Jean-François Jenny-Clark, Bernard Guerin, and Eddie Gaumont -- assembled by Tusques in the same months that followed the important manifesto of the avant-garde that embossed the groups name on the French musical map. This advent collides at the exact point where Rollin (as an erotic writer and avant-garde theatre patron) first committed his filmic experiments to feature-length celluloid, proving this previously unheard artifact to be a significant landmark at the start of both a controversial cinematic legacy and a genuinely experimental domestic music career that immediately went on to magnetize the likes of Don Cherry, and Archie Shepp and Sunny Murray in the following year. Remastered from Tusquess very own studio master tapes and including an extra lost bonus track from his personal "work-in-progress" Ferrograph dubs, this LP not only includes the unedited soundtrack source material but compiles a number of high-quality studio demos originally turned down by Rollin in 1967. The approved themes found on the A-side of the record were also rearranged and edited for the soundtrack for Rollins second feature film, La Vampire Nue (1970), without Tusquess prior consent, providing an extra twist in the tale and instantly giving this first-time release a technical "double soundtrack" status.” - Cacophonic.

Title: Dark Years
Format: LP
Label: Supreme Echo
Country: USA
Price: $24.00
“”Dark Years", dating from 1974, is an essential artifact unearthed from the Canadian underground, complete with burning crosses, smoking cauldrons, mouthfuls of blood and haunting corpse paint predating black metal by well over a decade. A melding of epic doom, gutter glam, and shocking Satanic proto-punk from the damp Vancouver wastelands. Professionally remastered from original analogue masters, 12 page booklet with insane fully restored photographs (full color cover & centerfold), first press of 500 gold ink hand-numbered copies! 7 songs, including: "Litany to Raise the Dead", "I Am the Wizard", and "Satans Blood”.” - Supreme Echo.

"An undiscovered early light in underground North American heavy music, recommended to folks keen on the heavier side of glam, metalheads and those searching for the crumbs to that led to the big punk feast." "...based around an occult “rock opera”, which leans hard into the bonehead crunch zone of proto-metal / proto-punk." "...denim delinquent yoofs exercising a fascination with the dark side..." "part glitter rock garb, part prescient caked-on black metal-type makeup (with nods to Ms. Cooper)—at the time when contemporaneous future stars KISS were just making their way into the Bowery. Long hair, mustachioed faces and elaborate stage show that included occult antics, fake blood, incantations, smoking crosses, cauldrons, torches and fog effects was a quite a sight to behold. Far ahead their time aesthetically, during this period they shared stages with other Northwestern iconoclasts/weirdos in Ze Whiz Kids (with a pre-Screamers Tomata Du Plenty), Mikl Body Rock (with the infamous Jon Mikl Thor) and glam-pop wonders Sweeney Todd." "...brutal, metallic, pulsating "Litany to Raise the Dead," one of the most realized and fleshed-out tracks on the set—including the most accomplished lyrically..." "...straight, chugging, heavy rocknroll/proto-punk sound, with Chuck Berry-infused leads and some glammy vocal touches—“Satans Blood,” “Vaseline,” “Roaring Drunk,” “Sweet Baby C.T.” (the latter a standout of gutter-bound boogie/punk rocknroll akin to the Dead Boys). - Jeremy Cargill, Ugly Things / Got Kinda Lost.

“Archaic Sounds, Natural Music & Joy”
“This album is about a way to simply make raw, basic, natural and joyful music. This album is also about and with the Swedish saxophone visionary Bengt Nordström, ”Frippe” who first of all talked to me about making and playing natural music. The legend of Bengt Nordström (1936-2000) tells how he picked up the clarinet and the saxophone after being deeply touched by the music of Tony Scott and Sonny Rollins.
Then meeting Ornette Coleman and Albert Ayler changed his musical vision; so much that he no longer fit into the contemporary jazz scene in Sweden. Frippe spoke of a totally spontaneous, improvised, creative music at a time when everyone else was trying to master
bebop. Because of this, he was left to play alone for many years. He became ”the outsider”; that nobody wanted, or had the nerve to play with. During intermissions at clubs, like the ”Golden
Circle”, he took the opportunity to play small solo concerts and recorded himself. He released small editions of his work on his own ”Bird Notes” label. Although the recordings were mostly solo sax, on rare occasions, he was joined by Don Cherry on trumpet, bassist
Sven Hessle or bassist Björn Alke who would show up to play duets with him. His collection had two releases: Albert Aylers; ”Something Different!!!!!!” (BNLP 1) and Bengt Nordströms
own; ”Natural Music” (BNLP 2). The other recordings were not numbered or catalouged but were released as LPs and EPs. It was not until the mid 70s that Bengt Frippe Nordström formed his own band, the ”Miljövårdsverket”. After some years of trying different constellations, the musicians, bassist Björn Alke (1938-2000), violin player Lars Svanteson (b. 1949) and myself, drummer Peeter Uuskyla (b. 1951), became established as a ”working unit” and cut the albums ”Nows The Frippe Time” (Dragon Records DRLP 82), ”The Environmental Control Office” (Ayler Records aylCD-021/022), ”Frippes Protocol” (aylDL-086) and ”Creative
Addition” (aylDL-116). This album is also about me talking to my children Nema (b. 1993) and Simon Cecil (b. 1990) to continue making natural music with your own voice, body and whatever music instruments you use. This album is recreated, created and recorded 2015, 7″ vinyl side A recorded 1967 and side B recorded 1987. Hope you like it!” - Peeter Uuskyla.

Title: An Anthology of Turkish Experimental Music 1961-2014
Format: Double LP
Label: Sub Rosa
Country: Belgium
Price: $25.00
“This anthology features works by Turkish artists ranging from the electronic music of the 1960s to all forms of experimental music of the 2010s. This is Sub Rosas second release exploring experimental music by zone or sphere of influence. The constellation built between 2000 and 2012 with Sub Rosas seven-part Anthology Of Noise & Electronic Music continues to expand through the Early Electronic collection (consisting mostly of tracks composed between the 50s and the 80s) and these "area anthologies," this one released following An Anthology of Chinese Experimental Music 1992-2008 (SR 265CD). This collection covers a much wider time-frame than its predecessor; this is because, in Turkey, two exceptional composers emerged very early on to show the way to future generations that then followed in a piecemeal fashion. Indeed, Bülent Arel and İlhan Mimaroğlu did not have immediate followers. The explosion happened later, through the "serious music" of conservatories and universities (Cenk Ergün, Koray Tahiroğlu, Mehmet Can Özer) and the electronic/noise music avant-garde (Nilüfer Ormanlı, Utku Tavil) -- the great wave of the 2000s and 2010s. The beauty of this collection lies in its multifaceted nature; it features purely formal music, hijacked electronica, remnants of Turkish harmonies, and pieces that are more conceptual or even political (vaguely or strongly) in design. Batur Sönmez and Erdem Helvacıoğlu have managed to capture this diversity and energy. And it so happens that this profusion of music, related to an urgency to live and think freely, is blooming within an increasingly stifling space. Call it the spectacular beauty of an explosion. Most of the material included here has not been released before. Includes works by Bülent Arel, İlhan Mimaroğlu, Erdem Helvacıoğlu, Batuhan Bozkurt, Alper Maral, Batur Sönmez, Cenk Ergün, Korhan Erel, Sair Sinan Kestelli, Koray Tahiroğlu, Mehmet Can Özer, Nilüfer Ormanlı, Utku Tavil, Asaf Zeki Yüksel, SIFIR (Zafer Aracagök), Cem Güney, Tuna Pase, 2/5BZ, Cevdet Erek, Reverie Falls On All, and Burçin Elmas.” - Sub Rosa.

"The Twisted Tales From The Vinyl Wastelands series takes the listener on a dark adventure, a wrong turn into a bizarre, alternate world of American country music performed by small town, unknown hicks. The second volume,Beating On The Bars, collects eighteen ultrarare hillbilly 45s recorded for long-lost independent record labels. The theme this time is incarceration -- the county lock-ups, state pens and prisons. When Johnny Cash released his live at Fulsom Prison andSan Quentin LPs to critical acclaim and commercial success, small-town hopefuls rushed into backwoods recording studio across the South to tell their own tales of crime and punishment. Until now, most of these records lay forgotten in the solitary confinement of the bargin bins.

Country: USA
Price: $29.00
RSD 2016 release. First vinyl edition; originally released on CD in 2004 and long out of print. Limited edition of 2000. "Two LPs with bonus tracks in full-color gatefold sleeve with extensive liner notes and vital new track and title information. Restored and remastered audio. Lovingly assembled and notated by Mark Gergis. Primarily drawn from over 150 aging and often unmarked cassettes found at the Asian Branch of the Oakland Public Library in California during the late 1990s, Cambodian Cassette Archives showcases an unbelievable collection of dynamic music recorded between the 1960s and the 1990s, both in Cambodia and abroad. Male and female vocalists share the spotlight in a Khmer blend of folk and pop stylings, with cha-cha psychedelia, phase-shifting rock, sultry circle dance standards, pulsing new wave, haunted ballads, musical comedy sketches, easy-listening numbers, and raw instrumental grooves presented in an eclectic variety of production techniques. Heard throughout are legends of Cambodias golden age during the 1960s-1970s, including Sinn Sisamouth, Ros Sereysothea, Pen Ran, and Chhoun Vanna, among others. With their fantastic ensembles, they helped rewrite Khmer musical history, often weaving traditional melodies into the various dance crazes and rock and roll sounds infiltrating Southeast Asia at the time. Then, between 1975-1979, the Khmer Rouge tragically seized and devastated the country, killing millions and nearly erasing the culture. This collection also focuses on what came next -- the lesser-heard music of the Cambodian diaspora, recorded in the 1980s and 1990s. Beginning inside Thai refugee camps, singers such as Kieng Yuthhan were among the first to record what can be called a post-war Khmer music. Songs ranged from renditions of revered Khmer songs from the golden era to original music that borrowed from both traditional and Western styles. Some flirted with contemporary disco or new wave influences, while others pursued more traditional ballads or more traditional romvong-style dance music. Groups were mainly composed of guitars, drums, keyboard, vocals, and occasionally fiddle or xylophone. Some enjoyed brief popularity on the local Cambodian music circuit at the time, while others remained regional obscurities. The majority of this music was never reissued digitally, and therefore lived and died on cassette. Includes performances by Kieng Yuthhan, Darkie, Klan Han, Meas Samon, Sinn Sisamouth, Son Thoeung, Eueng Nary, Pen Ran, Wat Phnom Orchestra, Golden Dragon Band, Prum Manh, Ros Sereysothea, Dara Chomchan, and Chhoun Vanna, as well as several tracks by unknown performers." - Sublime Frequencies.

RSD 2016 release. 160-gram LP. Limited edition of 500. "The second volume of Der Zeltweg - Italian Tapes Industrial Music 1982-1984, documenting the legendary Musumecis Der Zeltweg tape label, which existed for a few years in the early 80s. While the A-side collects music produced by some of Musumecis side projects (Errata-S-Corrige, Gasdehyde, Herpes-Z) introduced in the first volume of Der Zeltweg (2015) (plus a previously unreleased early Musumeco studio track), the B-side contains the first full reissue of the Il Fantasma della Libertà tape by The Psychopathic Blossom (Der Zeltweg 002), an unexpected, experimental guitar-bass-noise album permeated with Italian-language philosophical declamations and short, pulsating rhythms. For a brief moment Turin was Italys Sheffield, producing an astonishing number of DIY electronic groups. In the context of a wider Europe, Italy has never been thought of as a hotbed of minimal electronic music, but Mannequins Danza Meccanica: Italian Synth Wave compilations have shone a light on a scene that was relatively unknown even within Italys borders. Musumeci is one of the labels most obscure discoveries, but its combined reissue of Musumecis two super-rare demo tapes (MNQ 042LP, 2013) was just the beginning. The mission is now terminated with the second volume of Der Zeltweg - Italian Tapes Industrial Music 1982-1984. Mastered by Rude 66.

RSD 2016 release. Limited edition of 500. "klangFarBe: German Democratic Republic Tape Music 1983-1987 is a compilation of tracks from Frank Bretschneiders legendary experimental new wave label klangFarBe, which Bretschneider ran from 1985 to 1989 in Karl-Marx-Stadt, East Germany (now known as Chemnitz). Bretschneider, who would go on to found the raster-noton label with Olaf Bender and Carsten Nicolai, established klangFarBe to make his music accessible to a small group of interested parties, eventually publishing eight releases in all. Due to the restrictive laws in the German Democratic Republic, where media was completely controlled by the government and any private publishing was actually illegal, it was only possible to publish releases in very limited editions. At first only known to a handful of specialists, the label soon became well known with the help of Lutz Schramm, host of the famous Parocktikum radio program on East Germanys DT 64 station. With the fall of the wall, Bretschneider gained new opportunities to publish his music in a more professional way, and closed down klangFarBe in 1989 after releasing its final cassette, Trickbeat by Bretschneiders new wave band AG. Geige. This collection includes tracks by Bretschneider, Kriminelle Tanzkapelle (Bretschneider and Fritz-Hendrik Melle), Stein im Brett (Bretschneider and Matthias Stein), and AG. Geige.

Title: Reality Fantasies
Format: LP

Country: USA
Price: $14.00
“Hailing from the economically depressed wilds of Eastern Pennsylvania, a “remade/re-modeled” Vanity of the Tongue (few may recognize them from two micro-run cassettes of crudely recorded bass, guitar, rhythm box and wholesale negativity under different moniker) return as full band to deliver a debut long player as ambitious as it is confounding. Devised over countless budget pints at the Chicken Lounge, West Allentowns premier nite flight destination, Reality Fantasies consists of four well-considered portraits of bleak, modern existence, contrasted with drastic re-workings of song-as-source material. Eschewing implicit conservatism and convention in favor of a disorienting palette that places it in conversation with such time-tested classics of hardcore confusion as Disease is Relative, Psychedelic Inferno and Language of a Dying Breed (“conversation,” get it?), the focus on reorganization and self-reference draws as much from the likes of Unser Debut à Sechs, M.B. c. S.F.A.G. 81 or Lucier-esque pure sound experiments as it does any outfit associated with the making of aggressive, song-based music. Destined to become an apogee of no-scene hardcore punk (if not in this day, then perhaps when lizards return to walk Earth upright and discover it buried among the grounds of Denver International Airport), Reality Fantasies stands on a plane of its own contrivance, celebrating a Future of complete sound freedom whilst engaging in a hapless trawl through the decadence destined to rip mankind to pieces. Are you a slave man or a pet boy? Do you revel in pig shit? Listen and have such important questions answered.” - Crisis of Taste.

CRETINNVILL is Nobu/Wataru Kasahara (Embudagonn 108, etc); Vince & Nov is a collaboration with Vince Brusio.

"Nobu Kasahara is perhaps better known as Wataru Kasahara, a visual artist whose point of organ, scatological and obsessive work inhabits the same putrefaction as Dernier Cri or the material art of Andy Bolus. As Embudagonn 108, Kasahara has expelled a curious catalog of sounds - shortwave, room event, organ malfunction.... Embudagonn 108 confuses, infuriates and incites the listener towards action.... Kasaharas work features the same arch nihilism on display in Violent Onsen Geisha...." - Vitrine.

"I listen to various music. I am not so interested in a lot of stylized drone music and the harsh noises. These sounds are agreeable. I keep away ease. I want to stimulate the sense by uncomfortable. I am not basically interested in drone music and the harsh noises though there is exceptions such as Hermann Nitsch and I.Dumitrescu. These are music that pierces, is moved to karma, and purifies it and is repeated. However, I like music that the uniqueness of the brain of the person who makes the sound can be looked and know. They think that they fight unconsciously against karma by the peculiar brain. Selten Gehorte Musik. Caroliner Rainbow. Psycodrama. Suckdog. Costes. Sarenco. Wolf Vostell. Wild Man Fischer. J.S. Bach. Colette Magny. The Ritualistic School Of Errors. Hovlakin. Zurich 1916. They are making the work that demonstrates the primitive magic of music though music is dismantled. And, they are a one and only people not to flatter nobody. Their music gives me courage." - Wataru Kasahara (VICE interview).

Limited numbered edition of 575. "Modes réels collectifs is the first work published in 1981 under the Vivenza banner, following Jean-Marc Vivenzas time with the bands Glace (1976) and Mécanique Populaire (1979). It represents a genuine manifesto that would become emblematic of all Vivenzas subsequent work. By suggesting, from philosophical and sonic points of view, an idea of opening to the reality directly inspired from Futurist theories, Vivenza was presenting what he had brought from his relationship with machines and sounds of factories, to evoke the brutal concrete of the heavy industry world. This album shows this concern about participating in the energy of the future, with the reciprocal mediation linked to the productive activity of the world. As Vivenza puts it, "By working and through the strengths of work, in the sonorous magma of the industrial society, at the heart of the forges and weirs, of the rolling mills and power stations, reactors and artificial intelligence, nature reveals its dynamic characteristic. The power of machines, and of industry in general, are the truth of the world." Thus, industry and technique are what we could call the principle of any reality, because, like the Futurists said, "The machine is indeed the richest symbol of the mysterious human creator strength" (Enrico Prampolini, Ivo Pannaggi, and Vinicio Paladini, Manifesto of Mechanical Art, 1923)." - Rotorelief.

This album shows this concern about participating in the energy of the future, with the reciprocal mediation linked to the productive activity of the world. As Vivenza puts it, "By working and through the strengths of work, in the sonorous magma of the industrial society, at the heart of the forges and weirs, of the rolling mills and power stations, reactors and artificial intelligence, nature reveals its dynamic characteristic. The power of machines, and of industry in general, are the truth of the world." Thus, industry and technique are what we could call the principle of any reality, because, like the Futurists said, "The machine is indeed the richest symbol of the mysterious human creator strength" (Enrico Prampolini, Ivo Pannaggi, and Vinicio Paladini, Manifesto of Mechanical Art, 1923).

Originally released in 1983. "Bruitism is the representation of a living, biological body, not unrelated but on the contrary intimate to the substance. The nature/technique gap is totally, in The Art of Noises, the most accomplished form of a reconciliation with industrial mechanization. By highlighting the autonomy of the dialectical movement in its inaugural tension, bruitism reestablishes this relationship with the pure objectivity of the substance, which is the cornerstone of the program of futurism and remains more than ever valid for the future of all futures. The sonorous world, the noises of life, are not just a simple residual environment but the material of a new art, The Art of Noises! Luigi Russolo declares: In a few years the engines of our industrial cities can all be skilfully sounded so as to make from each factory an exhilarating orchestra of noises. The futurist objective is a will for a back to original forces, it finds in bruitism the most intense form of a participation to the universal energy of the being of the world" --extract from Lart des bruits futuristes (The Art of Futurist Noises), Vivenza, 1982. Since his first works in the mid-70s, Jean-Marc Vivenza has theoretically and politically linked himself with the Italian Futurists and Russian Constructivists, and qualifies his music as "bruitist futurist" rather than "industrial." He enacts the re-appropriation of noise as a formal plastic aid. He explores the field of perspectives that the plastic-acoustic material offers and works on a concept that he calls "the objective materiality of noise," basing his work on the Futurist thesis of Luigi Russolo proclaimed in his 1913 manifesto The Art of Noises. He is then the first, between 1976 (with the band Glace) and 1979, to build a bridge between the thesis of Luigi Russolo and our time. The originality of Vivenza lies in his use of sonorous industrial material in the literal sense of the word (machines, workers in action, factories). Noises and machines recorded and mixed by Vivenza in Grenoble, France, 1982. Mastered by Hervé de Keroullas, 2011. Graphic design by Matthieu David, 2011. Photography from Vivenzas personal archives.

Title: Realites Servomecaniques
Format: CD/Book
Label: Rotorelief
Country: France
Price: $23.00
"Originally released in 1985. CD with 32-page A5 book. First reissued by Rotorelief in 2009. Features reworked visuals. Vivenza presents sounds -- noises -- in their rawest and most genuine aspect; sounds are machines and machines are sounds. Thus Vivenza captures the essence of factories with a strong sense of austerity and radicalism, evoking the thick smoke and intense darkness of industrial landscapes. Réalités servomécaniques directly refers to the triumph but also decline of heavy industries in the 80s. The cogwheels, forges, and machines smash us in the face in a radically powerfully vivid way, plunging us into the midst of the machines -- and into the machines themselves -- with a surprising and striking strength. Since his first works in the mid-70s, Jean-Marc Vivenza has theoretically and politically linked himself with the Italian Futurists and Russian Constructivists, and qualifies his music as "bruitist futurist" rather than "industrial."

Title: Veriti Plastici
Format: LP
Label: Rotorelief
Country: France
Price: $22.00
Black LP version in deluxe heavy-duty sleeve. Limited numbered edition of 333. "Veriti Plastici, the third part of the first works of Vivenza, was recorded and completed in 1983 and represents a fundamental step in the definitive formalization of the bruitist perspective. Made of objective industrial atmospheres, this recording is the bridge between the pure experimental approach and the rigorous structuring of the works that would follow (including Fondements Bruitistes in 1984 (ROTOR 033CD/AB-LP/ABRED/DC-LP/DCRED) and Réalités Servomécaniques in 1985 (ROTOR 014CD/RED-LP)). The release of Veriti Plastici was accompanied by a text, Le Programme Futuriste De Retour A La Realite Materielle, which describes Vivenzas theory of bruitism as follows: "The futurist objective, which is a will to a return to the original forces, will thus find in bruitism the most intense form of a participation to the universal energy of the being of the world. Bruitism is a radical attempt of the carrying out of the futurist project in its will of participative communion to the dialective future sensed in the mechanical power of industry. The attentive examination of bruitism on each machine generating a noise-sound, reveals an organic vision of the industrial and urban network: the large and fabulous breathing of a sleeping town is so strange, wonderful, fascinating. . . . a breathing only interrupted now and then by the whistle of a train; a breathing which is the result of all different industries (electric power stations, gas factories, train stations, printings, etc.) continuing their activities in the quiet nightlife [Luigi Russolo, The Art of Noises, 1913]. The transfigurative wave of the dialectic movement of the Vortex, the point of the highest energy [Ezra Pound, Blast, 1914], expresses the vertiginous transparency of the abyss; only the knowledge-contact through the exercise of the decentering of the subject can offer the possibility of a uniting participation to this abysmal reality." Noises and machines recorded and mixed by Vivenza in Grenoble, France, 1983. Mastered by Hervé de Keroullas. Layout by Matthieu David, from pictures, logo, and text from Vivenzas personal archives." - Rotorelief.

"Originally recorded in 1968 and slated for release on Sire Records, Microminiature Love languished unreleased until unearthed and released in a limited pressing on vinyl only by Destijl Records last year. Our friends at Aquarius Records had the following to say about the vinyl release : �??An obscure late-sixties ahead-of-his-time visionary gets his due with this LP reissue. Yonkers stuff was like nothing anyone had heard back then (or even now really): fucked-up garage psych with demedntedly genius lyrics and crazy acid-friend guitar. Yonkers, a legendary Minneapolis �?? area figure, built his own effects pedals, cut his Fender Telecaster down to a plank, and playedlinke no one else ever. Im at a loss of words on how to describe this. Its sort of like a fusion of stripped down Black Sabbath, The Troggs, Pere Ubu, and The Cramps??�?� This CD reissue will include six bonus tracks not found on the LP." - Sub Pop.

Format: LP

Country: Germany
Price: $23.00
"Dennis Young is best known as the percussionist of the New York band Liquid Liquid, who are themselves known for their 1983 track "Cavern," sampled the same year by Grandmaster Flash for "White Lines." In parallel to his work with Liquid Liquid, Young produced his own solo work, including three cassettes released between 1985 and 1988 that form his tribute to the pioneers of electronic music. Wave: Electronic Music 1984-1988 contains the best pieces from these cassettes, as selected by Young himself. Those who dont know otherwise might guess that this music originated in the 70s." - Bureau B.
"My love for electronic music goes back to the late 70s when I decided to buy my first synthesizer, a rare used vintage Davolisint made in Italy, after seeing Keith Emerson perform live with ELP. This lead to my discovery of more electronic music artists using synthesizers such as Klaus Schulze, Tim Blake, Larry Fast, Edgar Froese, Brian Eno, and Cluster just to name a few. My musical challenge was then to create my own electronic music using this instrument. After experimenting in the early 80s with live recordings using a reel to reel tape machine I purchased my first multi-track recording system in 1984. When Liquid Liquid was on hiatus I was able to devote full time to this music and do professional recordings at my home studio in Edison, New Jersey. I added more synthesizers to include a Korg Mono/Poly, a Korg Poly Six, a Moog Rogue, and later the Korg M1. Every track was put through various delay and reverb units and I added vocal parts and along with guitar where I felt it was needed. The music resulted in three now out of print cassette only recordings entitled Concepts (1985), Reflections (1987), and Quest (1988). They were all mixed at Gabriel Farm studios in Princeton, New Jersey, with the help of Andrew Gomory who owned the studio and who himself was a keyboardist. Thanks to Bureau B I have been able to go back in time to put together what I feel are the best songs from that era for you the listener to enjoy." - Dennis Young.
