Label: An Archives
Country: France
Price: $24.00

À Qui Avec Gabriel is an accordion player based in Tokyo who opened her discography with Utsuho on John Zorns label Tzadik in 2001 (featuring Haino Keiji as a guest musician). Since she has collaborated with Makoto Kawabata, Majutsu No Niwa, Mico to name a few. Her stylistic palette is eclectic, drawing on shades of jaunty european folk music, the elegant minimalism of Erik Satie, and uniquely lighthearted melancholia. Here for the first time on record she left her accordion Gabriel for a piano and a seat and proves shes found her own voice as an expressive singer.
The other side features Tori Kudo (Maher Shalal Hash Baz and Noise with his wife Reiko Kudo) who has a revered status in the Japanese underground since the late 70s (Taco, Guys N Dolls, Fushitsusha…) but this time he brings listeners into the heart of an amazing and feverish karaoke house with his friends . For those who didnt know it before, maybe for the very first time they are going to discover Tori Kudo as an inimitable & unforgettable crooner, as a true lover of popular songs.” - An Archives.

Artist: ALGARNAS TRADGARD
Title: Framtiden är ett svävande skepp, förankrat i forntiden
Format: Double LP
Label: Subliminal Sounds
Country: Sweden
Price: $45.00
"Subliminal Sounds presents a vinyl reissue of Älgarnas Trädgårds 1972 debut album Framtiden är ett svävande skepp, förankrat i forntiden, a rare and totally flipped-out psychedelic underground space rock masterpiece from Sweden. The band name translates to "The Garden of the Elks" and the album title to "The Future Is a Hovering Ship, Anchored in the Past." A long, long time ago, long before our time, there was high-standing civilization on earth. It was then that the elks lived. In their garden was a huge generator of pink glass that radiated the four elements. It was a sort of primal force for everything that one might call God. These elks eventually learned to master the matter and then went into the astral transcendental plane. Since then nobody has seen them... This reissue is a facsimile deluxe re-release from the master tapes. Includes additional LP with previously unreleased recordings from the same time period. Features never before seen photos and liner notes by the band." - Subliminal Sounds.

Artist: AMBARCHI, OREN
Title: Live Knots
Format: CD
Label: Pan
Country: UK
Price: $18.00
"Oren Ambarchi presents Live Knots, two live realizations of Knots, the epic centerpiece of his 2012 album Audience of One (TO 083CD/LP). Built on the interplay between Ambarchis swirling guitar harmonics and the metronomic pulse and shifting accents of Joe Talias DeJohnette-esque drumming, the piece merges the organic push and pull of free improvisation with an overarching compositional framework. Tokyo Knots is the complete recording of a duo performance of the piece by Ambarchi and Talia recorded at Tokyos legendary SuperDeluxe in March 2013. The performance builds gently on the foundation of Talias insistent ride cymbal and the shifting tonal bed of Ambarchis rich, overtone-drenched guitar, eventually going into a free rock free fall of buzz saw harmonics and crashing drums. From within the maelstrom, Talia picks up a pulsing motorik rhythm that leads the piece back to where it began, with the addition of the shuddering, elastic tones of a hand-played spring reverb unit. Krakow Knots works with the same basic structure but stretches it out to nearly twice the length and adds strings played by the Sinfonietta Cracovia, led by Eyvind Kang on viola. The strings expand the pieces textural range with lush chordal blocks, uneasy dissonances, and occasional Ligeti-esque swarms of micro-activity, the swelling string tones intensifying the ecstatic nature of the piece as it moves toward its mid-point crescendo in which Ambarchi unleashes a particularly malicious continuum of stuttering harmonic fuzz. The strings then enter with a series of swelling chords, announcing the pieces final movement, and reaffirming the uniqueness of the tonal and compositional language that Ambarchi has patiently developed over the last two decades, in which the influence of post-minimal composers such as Alvin Curran, Gavin Bryars, and David Behrman can be felt alongside the inspiration of raw free jazz, harsh noise, and academic psychoacoustics. The final moments of the performance pit Talia and Crys Coles amplified objects and spring reverb textures against a field of gently gliding string glissandi before the audience erupts in much-deserved applause." - Francis Plagne.

Artist: AVALANCHE
Title: Perseverance Kills Our Game
Format: LP
Label: Guerssen
Country: Spain
Price: $27.00
"Guerssen presents a reissue of Perseverance Kills Our Game, an absolute masterpiece of European progressive psychedelic folk rock. Dutch band Avalanche formed in the early 70s and recorded Perseverance Kills Our Game, their only album, in 1979, and released it in a private edition of 500 copies, which were only distributed among friends and relatives. Despite being a home-made project (the album was recorded in just one day!), the result was stunning. Totally early 70s sounding electric folk rock with flute, piano, bass, drums, and killer fuzz guitar. Mostly instrumental with sparse vocals in English. It alternates delicate acoustic passages with devastating fuzz leads, sounding like Fairport Convention jamming with early Ash Ra Tempel. The album closes with an extended 11-minute track on which guitar player Daan Slaman starts playing leads like a madman, creating layers and layers of liquid acid-fuzz guitar. It has to be heard to be believed! This reissue was produced in cooperation with the original band members. LP insert features rare photos and liner notes by Richard Allen. Carefully remastered from original vinyl (the masters were destroyed long ago) using state-of-the-art equipment." - Guerssen.

Artist: BABA COMMANDANT AND THE MANDINGO BAND
Title: Juguya
Format: CD
Label: Sublime Frequencies
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Baba Commandant and the Mandingo Band are a contemporary group from Burkina Faso. Coming from Bobo-Dioulasso, the group is steeped in the Mandingue musical traditions of their ancestral legacy. The enigmatic lead singer Baba Commandant (Mamadou Sanou) is an original and eccentric character who is well respected in the Burkinabé musical community. A sort of punk Faso Dan Fani activist for traditional Mandingo music, Baba continues to redefine the boundaries between traditional and modern. In 1981, he joined the Koule Dafourou troupe as a dancer. Later, he embarked on his current musical direction as a singer, first in Dounia and then in the Afromandingo Band. His current band -- when hes not playing with the now-famous Burkinabé musician Victor Démé -- is the Mandingo Band. At present, he is a practitioner of the Afrobeat style, drawing inspiration from the golden era of Nigerian music. Fela Kuti/Africa 70 and King Sunny Adé are big influences, as is the legendary Malian growler Moussa Doumbia. Baba Commandant plays the ngoni, the instrument of the Donso (the traditional hunters in this region of Burkina Faso and Mali). His audience comprises multiple generations and strata of Burkinabé society; he accordingly adapts his repertoire to his surroundings, which range from cabaret Sundays in Bobo-Dioulasso to the sound systems of Ouagadougou. Baba Commandant and the Mandingo Band are a formidable force steeped in Ouagadougous DIY underground musical culture. Juguya is their sound." - Sublime Frequencies.

Artist: BEAU
Title: Creation
Format: LP
Label: Sommor
Country: Spain
Price: $27.00
"Originally released in 1971 on John Peels Dandelion Records, Creation is the second album by underground folk troubadour Trevor "Beau" Midgley. Influenced by Tom Paxton, Lead Belly, and Dylan, Beau started to write his own songs in the late 60s. After trying to secure a contract with Elektra Records with no success, he was approached by Clive Selwood (Elektra) and Peel as they were launcing Dandelion Records. Beau signed with them and released his eponymous debut album in 1969. For his second effort, Beau decided to experiment with a more folk-rock sound and add to the mix some avant-garde influences. Jim Milne (lead guitar and bass) and Steve Clayton (drums) from Dandelion stablemates The Way We Live/Tractor were the perfect backing band for him. Creation is a brilliant psych/acid folk offering with superb 12-string guitars, heartfelt vocals, studio effects, and occasional acid-fuzz guitar. Beaus avant-garde influences come to the fore on the title-track, which verges into White Noise territory. The album closes with "Silence Returns," featuring one of the most ear-splitting fuzz assaults ever committed to wax, courtesy of Jim Milne. This first vinyl reissue includes two previously unreleased bonus tracks from 1972 (featuring Tractor as backing band), recorded for aborted third album High Mass. Also includes four-page insert featuring the first cover design (which was never used), plus detailed liner notes by Beau himself and lyrics. Master tape sound." - Sommor.

Artist: BEBEY, FRANCIS
Title: African Electronic Music 1975-1982
Format: Double LP
Label: Born Bad
Country: France
Price: $28.00
"Cameroonian musician Francis Bebey is truly one of a kind. He entered the music scene with his African compositions for classical guitar. He gave recitals while pursuing a career in journalism and then as an international civil servant. The same creative impulse also led him to write pop songs, some of which (based on novels he had written) became big hits in Africa and in the French-speaking world. But few people know that in the 70s, Francis Bebey delved into electronic music. The first electronic keyboards, organs and drum machines offered him new possibilities of totally controlling his compositions. He embraced the technique of "sound on sound" recording (recording several tracks, sequentially juxtaposed on the same tape). This new stage in his musical career included the production of several records (Savannah Georgia, New Track, Haiti), rarities both for their creative explorations as well as their manifestations on vinyl. This was a particularly rich period for him, as he tested the limitless possibilities of the medium, and made use of surprising and novel instruments. Incredible sounds -- in the literal sense of the word -- would soon appear on the planet Bebey. Full-color printed innersleeves with notes in English and French." - Born Bad.

Artist: BITTER SEEDS/THE ROCK SHOP, THE
Title: State of Your Mind
Format: LP
Label: Out-Sider
Country: Spain
Price: $27.00
"The Bitter Seeds were one of the pioneering bands from the early Monterey music scene. Led by flashy guitar player Leonard "Pooch" Paschini, they were active from 1966 to 1970, gigging regularly at such legendary venues as Bulls Eye Tavern, Longshoremens Hall, The Matrix, and The Fillmore and sharing stages with the Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Iron Butterfly, and Steppenwolf. In 1967, The Bitter Seeds recorded their only 45, issued on Rowena Records as The Rock Shop to avoid confusion with The Seeds. State of Your Mind/Is That Your Halo is a brutal garage-psych double-sider. The following year the group recorded four studio tracks that have remained unreleased until now. These are perfect examples of the transition from R&B-garage to early psychedelic sounds that many San Francisco ballroom bands experienced at the time. An exciting find for any lover of lost West Coast psychedelic sounds. For this Bitter Seeds/Rock Shop retrospective, Out-Sider has also unearthed some wild live recordings from 1966 with good sound quality. Includes four-page insert with liner notes, photos, and memorabilia. Remastered sound." - Out-Sider.

Artist: BLOOM, KATH
Title: Pass Through Here
Format: CD
Label: Chapter Music
Country: Australia
Price: $16.00
"Pass Through Here is the first album from Connecticut folk icon Kath Bloom since 2010s Thin Thin Line, which was released on Mark Kozeleks Caldo Verde Records. Since she began performing in the late 1970s, Bloom has become renowned for her 80s private press recordings with avant-garde guitarist Loren Connors, particularly her signature tune "Come Here," which was featured in Richard Linklaters film Before Sunrise (1995), and has come to be revered around the world for her devastatingly emotional songwriting. Devendra Banhart called her "one of the most beautiful singers ever," and Stephen M. Deusner, reviewing Thin Thin Line for Pitchfork, wrote, "she can snap a heart like a twig." Chapter Music brought Blooms work to a renewed audience with the solo compilation Finally in 2005 and the studio album Terror (CH 061CD) in 2008, as well as reissues of four of her six albums with Connors as double CD sets (CH 063CD, CH 065CD). Then, in 2009, Chapter released the celebrated tribute album Loving Takes This Course, featuring covers of Blooms work by the likes of Kozelek, Banhart, Bill Callahan, and Josephine Foster. For Pass Through Here, Bloom travelled far from her Connecticut home to record in California with a coterie of freewheeling west coast folk rock types, including engineer Jeff Hassay and fellow performer Levi Strom. Its a distinctive new sound for Bloom, uplifted by floating synthesizers and disembodied choruses, while retaining the direct simplicity and power for which she is loved. Bloom faces turbulence head-on in "Criminal Side," while "Let the Music Come" condenses her 60-something years of music-making into two incredibly affecting minutes. "Bubble Bath" is Bloom at her most idiosyncratic and touching, while "Shirt Off Song" is an anthem to the wayward men in her life. Recorded in just a few takes, her vocals are raw and honest, but the overall impression is as masterful as it is ramshackle. For Kath Bloom, music has never been about finesse, but always about feeling. Pass Through Here is emotional, uplifting, haunting, and heartwarming songwriting from a master of the craft." - Chapter Music.

Artist: BORDEN, DAVID
Title: Music for Amplified Keyboard Instruments
Format: CD
Label: Spectrum Spools
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"David Borden, born Christmas Day, 1938, in Boston, Massachusetts, is an American minimalist composer and electronic music pioneer. He was one of the first people to beta test Bob Moogs modular synthesizer systems. His Earthquack Records imprint inspired Mimi Johnson to found the legendary Lovely Music, Ltd. with Robert Ashley. He formed the first all-synthesizer ensemble, Mother Mallards Portable Masterpiece Company, in 1969. If there were ever a missing link in American minimalism, Borden is it. Music for Amplified Keyboard Instruments is his masterpiece, released in 1981 to little fanfare on the now-defunct Dutch label Red Records. As its reputation has grown, most listeners have had to settle for compressed YouTube clips and poor vinyl-to-digital transfers, with original copies increasingly rare and expensive. Now, 34 years after its original release, Spectrum Spools presents the first reissue of Music for Amplified Keyboard Instruments, after recovering in Bordens private archives the only known safety master. Music for Amplified Keyboard Instruments contains four pieces, each utilizing three players and six keyboard instruments. "Etsy Point, Summer 1978" begins with a mournful, ominous mood and slowly blossoms into an immense, humid labyrinth of colorful, buzzing textures and howling melodies. "The Continuing Story of Counterpoint" is a 12-part cycle for synthesizers, acoustic instruments, and voice, upon which Borden labored for over 11 years. Parts nine and six, included here, are miraculous achievements in prodigious playing technique, remarkable mosaic-like structure, and aural magnitude, operating in the relative terrain of Steve Reichs Music for 18 Musicians and Terry Rileys Dervishes pieces. The "Counterpoint" pieces here are rigidly arranged with breakneck key changes and intricate time signature maneuvering. The resulting audio conjures kaleidoscopic patterns of beautiful melodies and compositional anatomy unparalleled in much of American minimalism. "Enfield in Winter" displays some of Bordens more ambient leanings, with slow, morphing drones and gentle pad sounds that erupt into shimmering patterns backed by a grandiose chord progression. Music for Amplified Keyboards represents a veritable zenith in Bordens corpus; a radiant achievement in sonic elegance, experimentation, and ambitious composition technique, and a work of the highest archival significance. Music for Amplified Keyboard Instruments was remastered with love and transparency by Giuseppe Tillieci at EnissLab, Rome. These newly remastered works are superior to the original vinyl master, giving the world a chance to hear this remarkable work in the highest possible fidelity across multiple formats. Includes extensive liner notes and photos by Borden." - Spectrum Spools.

Artist: BUGS & RATS
Title: Bugs and Rats
Format: LP
Label: Feeding Tube
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
LP includes download code. Edition of 400. "Nine-song pus-rock explosion by this Quincy, MA, trio with guest vocals on a couple of tracks by Kassie Carlson (of Guerilla Toss). The sound has a mega-sludge hunch that will make you feel several sweet reefs to the wind, until you fasten your seatbelt and get ready for the ride. The bands pace varies from machine-gun rattle to cough-syrup lunge (sometimes within a single song), so youll want to make sure your neck is well-braced, too. In the days when dumbos stood around, hanging their heads, shaking them mopily to the beat, Bugs & Rats would have been in the liability chair for any number of lawsuits filed by the parents of weekend-punks from Harvard. Today, thankfully, their status is such that their shows draw more heavily on the underground-lifer contingent. The bands mix of feedback, roar, and thump is one of the hotter mixes currently available in the Eastern Mass area. Without much in the way of fancy-pants scene politics, Bugs & Rats have managed to persist through many waves of fashion-based idiocy with their balls and their bells intact. These gentlemen have gotten to the nut of raunch epistemology. Hope you can dig the lecture" --Byron Coley, 2015.

Artist: CHAPMAN, MICHAEL
Title: The Polar Bear
Format: LP
Label: Blast First Petite
Country: UK
Price: $31.00
"The Polar Bear is the third album in Yorkshire-born composer, singer, guitarist, and maverick troubadour Michael Chapmans series of improvisational music. The first, 2011s The Resurrection and Revenge of the Clayton Peacock (PTYT 068CD), was Wire magazines #5 album of the year. It was widely well-received by press and fans alike as another highpoint in Chapmans late-blooming career, which has been boosted by the public recognition of his talents from the likes of Thurston Moore, Jack Rose, and Will Oldham. The second in the series, 2012s Pachyderm (PTYT 070CD/LP), is a minimalist masterpiece, a single-chord ambient work quite unlike anything Chapman had ever done before. It won him further widespread supportive reviews and a sold-out UK tour with Moore; out of that tour comes the duo heard on The Polar Bears noise epic "Six, Two, Thirteen." The new record also features Chapmans experiments with cello accompaniment, as well as some pieces showcasing his own atmospheric slide guitar work -- further proof of Chapmans relentless search for new musical adventures. Almost half a century after his 1960s beginnings on EMIs legendary Harvest record label, Chapman, at age 73, is playing better than ever." - Blast First Petite.

Artist: CHILDREN OF THE SIXTH ROOT RACE
Title: Songs from The Source
Format: LP
Label: Drag City
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Songs From The Source is a lost-and-found 1973 recording of The Source family. These twelve songs were recorded live in the Hollywood Hills as a rehearsal for a concert date that Spirit of 76 -- aka YaHoWaH 13, The Savage Sons of YaHoWa, Yodship, and FireWaterAir, now known as Children of the Sixth Root Race -- had at the Whisky. A 1/4" tape copy of the recording was found in Chicago in 2006, though no one is really sure how it got there. Djin Aquarian, rhythm guitarist and songwriter for Spirit of 76, recalls being sent on a mission to Chicago later in 1973, where he believes he left the tape with an old friend. Djin wrote most of the songs in the year before he joined with The Source, as part of his solo mystical quest to help enlighten the world before it might annihilate itself, adding, Im glad both the album and the world are still here. Though this rehearsal wasnt meant to be released at the time, there are probably no other recordings as complete of the band doing these songs. The Spirit of 76 had a different sound than the one YaHoWaH 13 made with Yahowa. Songs From The Source has more rnb-grooved energy, with splashes of synth and organ, a female vocal chorus and streamlined fusion rhythms backing the uniquely Yahowan lyrical populism of songs like Godmen and Lost Dead But Hoping. The ebullient, ever-climbing power of the climactic We Are the Dinosaurs, has few analogues in the other Source recordings and is furthermore an outstanding piece of music from the entire era. Songs From The Source is a miraculous missing piece of The Sources positive musical movement. The members of YaHoWaH 13 (Djin, Sunflower on bass, Octavius on drums) were joined by family members Ahom, Aquariana, Cinderella, Rhythm, Vibration, and Zoroaster on lead guitar, to create the ecstatic sound of Spirit of 76. In summing up, Djin told us, I know Father is behind this redeeming of the Spirit of 76 album and up to his old tricks again... Yahowha." -Drag City.

Country: USA
Price: $20.00
LP includes digital download and insert. Edition of 400. "Second Crystalline Roses LP by local Renaissance man, Tony Pasquarosa, is a goddamn monster of readymade acid folk transcendentalism. Since Feeding Tube released the One Man Cult LP back in 2010, Tony has done a wonderful solo guitar album for VDSQ, the insane space-sludge of World Domination (FTR 123LP), the raunch zonk of Gluebag, and various other projects far too numerous to name. On this album, Tony creates a classic late night smoker soundtrack. A brilliant journey into and beyond ego, the blend of guitar, voice, bells, bamboo flute and whatnot will be transportational for even the straightest listeners. Cosmic Driftwood represents some of the deepest acoustic-based psych weve had the pleasure of hearing in a long while. It makes a lot of Tonys contemporaries sound about as interesting as Smurph sing-alongs (no names), and is an instant classic. Get out your pipe and relax." - Byron Coley, 2015.

Title: Cities of Light
Format: LP
Label: Posh Isolation
Country: Denmark
Price: $19.00
"Following several cassette releases since 2011, F.E. Denning now presents Cities of Light, his vinyl debut and his best work to date. The compositions and emotions are more complex than ever before, and with his signature endless pools of synth drones and melodies cascading over each other, he draws out a perfectly paranoid image of a modern metropolis. The equal measures of beauty and horror that occupy the modern sleepless machine cities are presented in a blurred narrative over the records five pieces. Cities of Light feels neither for nor against the concept of mega-city that it displays; the record feels more like someone accepting the state of things, accepting that soon the sunrise will be broadcast on billboards because of smog layers. Accepting that even with millions and millions of people there are no familiar faces appearing in the masses. That the city has become an organism of its own and that any fighting against it has already been integrated into its system. Cities of Light is a beautiful and cinematic drone record, a new level for the work of F.E. Denning, and a very precise portrait of how it feels to be alone with millions around you." - Posh Isolation.

Buzzsaw riffs and manic leads underpin Hamptons feral, reverb-doused vocals ("Im feeling mean / Screwed up tight / O Im ready to kill"). Angel of Madness is one of the most elusive records of the era: manufactured through legendary oddball label Moxie Records, stamped on Hamptons own Z-Bop imprint, and distributed through a couple local record stores. Eventually the remaining stock was stolen from storage. Deranged like the Mentally Ill, yet grounded in Crimes impeccable rock sneer, the ignoble savagery of Destry Hampton proves its supremacy in the annals of Killed By Deaths many volumes. This first-time reissue comes from the original master tapes." - Superior Viaduct

Artist: DETAIL
Title: First Detail
Format: CD
Label: Rune Grammofon
Country: Norway
Price: $18.00
"If anybody deserves to be called a living legend in Norwegian free jazz it must surely be saxophone, flute, and clarinet player Frode Gjerstad. Since the late 70s, he has been central on more than fifty records and played with a number of prominent free jazz musicians including Evan Parker, Derek Bailey, Peter Brötzmann, Louis Moholo, Han Bennink, and Paal Nilssen-Love. Foreningen norske jazzmusikere named Gjerstad Jazz Musician of the Year in 1996, and the Norwegian Jazz Forum awarded him with the Buddyprisen in 2008. He founded Detail in 1981 with close friend Eivin One Pedersen (1956-2012) and legendary free jazz drummer and Spontaneous Music Ensemble founder John Stevens (1940-1994). The group became a quartet with the addition of bassist Johnny Dyani, and toured of Norway in March of 1982. They performed at the Molde International Jazz Festival in the summer and toured again in the fall. Pedersen left the group after the tour, and the remaining trio of Gjerstad, Stevens, and Dyani went straight to Stavanger and recorded Details first two albums, Backwards and Forwards/Forwards and Backwards (1983) and Okhela «To Make a Fire» (1984). So the intended quartet never got to make a record, but some live recordings do exist. This recording of the first performance from the fall 1982 tour, at the Henie-Onstad Art Centre outside Oslo, captures not the full quartet, but a variation on the trio: Gjerstad, Pedersen, and Stevens, without Dyani, who couldnt make it to the gig. The main reason for the delay in releasing this historic recording, according to Gjerstad, is that he couldnt listen to it because there were too many feelings involved. After the tour, his close friend Pedersen suddenly left the group, Dyani died in 1986, then Stevens in 1994 and Pedersen in 2012. There was also some doubt about his own playing, but after finally listening to the tapes, he realized how good everything was. Its almost unbelievable that Pedersen had just turned 26 at the time of this recording. Stevens is also incredible, quite different from what one might be used to from the Spontaneous Music Ensemble -- more open, possibly. Gjerstad is, as always, himself. At a time when most Norwegian sax players wanted to be Jan Garbarek, Gjerstad followed his own nose. Frode Gjerstad: tenor and soprano saxophones, bass clarinet, alto flute; Eivin One Pedersen: piano and keyboards; John Stevens: drums." - Rune Grammofon.

"First LP from New Englands favorite dream-harpist, Sophie Dickinson. Previously known for her work in the context of Bostons Whitehaus Family, Cucanandy represents a mind-blowing excursion into the mists of the heretofore unknown universe of acorn people, detourned Scottish balladry and backseat singalong dynamism. Sophies is music that lives in a hollow tree, emerging like a salvia-soaked squirrel to jibber and skip around your room in a way that will drive you crazy with deviously antic moves. Theres a delicious aroma that hovers over the session, smelling of grandmotherly pies baking in huge underground ovens, mixed with chipmunk fur washed in morning dew. There have been a lot of odd excursions into the wilds of New England before this, but there has never been one like this. Half kindergarten recreations of Wicker Man, half cannon rides into a spinning bucket of Scotch sausage, there is much here to make grown men (and women) swoon.

Artist: ENGLISH, LAWRENCE
Title: Wilderness of Mirrors
Format: LP
Label: Room40
Country: Australia
Price: $24.00
"Wilderness of Mirrors is the new album from Lawrence English. This album has been two years in the making and the first album created since the release of his 2011 ode to J.A. Bakers novel, The Peregrine. It is Englishs most tectonic auditory offering to date, an unrelenting passage of colliding waves of harmony and dynamic live instrumentation. The phrase, "wilderness of mirrors," draws its root from T.S. Eliots elegant poem "Gerontion." During the Cold War, the phrase became associated with campaigns of miscommunication carried out by opposing state intelligence agencies. Within the context of the record, the phrase acted as a metaphor for a process of iteration that sat at the compositional core of the LP. Buried in each final piece, like an unheard whisper, is a singularity that was slowly reflected back upon itself in a flood of compositional feedback. Erasure through auditory burial. Wilderness of Mirrors also reflects Englishs interests in extreme dynamics and densities, something evidenced in his live performances of the past half decade. The albums overriding aesthetic of harmonic distortion reveals his ongoing explorations into the potentials of dense sonics. The album is moreover a reflection on the current exploitation of the ideals of the wilderness of mirrors, retuned and refocused from the politics of the state, to the politics of the modern multiplex. The amorphous and entangled nature of the modern world is one where thoughtless information prevails in an environment starved of applied wisdom. Wilderness of Mirrors is a stab at those living spectres (human and otherwise) that haunt our seemingly frail commitments to being humane. "We face constant, unsettled change," English notes, "Its not merely an issue of the changes taking place around us, but the speed at which these changes are occurring. We bear witness to the retraction of a great many social conditions and contracts that have previously assisted us in being more humane than the generations that precede us. We are seeing this ideal of betterment eroded here in Australia and abroad, too. This record is me yelling into what seems to be an ever-growing black abyss. I wonder if my voice will reflect off something?" Wilderness of Mirrors is reflection upon reflection, a pure white-out of absolute aurality. Some lesser-known facts about Lawrence English: he is a lightning strike survivor, he has swum in Antarctic waters (rescuing field recording equipment), he has photographed every bed he has slept in on tour since the early 2000s, he has stood at the site of an atomic blast (obviously not during the explosion), he maintains the Room40 label family, he was once described in concert as "Moses, parting waves," he is a strong advocate for the profundity of listening, and he lives with three humans, a dog and two fine black Australorps." - Room40.

Title: La Ultima Emocion
Format: LP
Label: Dark Entries
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Europa was a short-lived synthpop group from Valencia, Spain formed in 1980 by Julio “Nexus” Pastor (synthesizers), Alfonso Aguado (vocals, guitar), Lino Oviaño (vocals, drum machine), and José Luis Macias (synthesizers). The quartet championed the use of synthesizers, drum machines and other polyphonic gadgets in a city that was stuck in the throws of progressive rock. They recorded and released their only album La Última Emoción in 1981 on cassette, released by DAI (Division Avanzada Independiente) a label interested in bands “capable of building electronic sounds from drum machines, sequencers, synths and effects, rather than conventional instruments like guitars and basses.”
The original issue of La Última Emoción was a single-sided cassette and limited to 500 copies. The band mixed all the tracks at their home studio using a Roland Juno 60, Casiotone 202, Korg Polysix, MS-20, MS-10 and the KR-55 drum machine. As part of the Spanish Techno-pop movement of the 1980s, Europas songs featured arpeggiated synthesizers and upbeat drum machines that flashback to the sound of Vince Clarkes Depeche Mode days. Comparisons could be made to other Spanish Techno-pop bands like Aviador Dro, Vocoder or Metal y Ca but Europa weaved a unique style of driving, energetic rhythms, bouncy keyboards and soaring vocals perfect for dancing or speeding into outer space. Shorty after their debut release the band would switch their name to Última Emoción releasing an EP in 1983 and an album in 1984 before breaking up. Alfonso Aguado went on to front Los Inhumanos, Julio Pastor launched the Valencia techno bands Megabeat and Interfront, while José Luis Macias and Lino Oviaño formed Comité Cisne. In 2010 the original Europa line-up reformed to play a few select live shows celebrating the re-issue of their 1984 cassette Máquinas Románticas on Turia Records of Spain. Their sound remains clean, rhythmic and futuristically strange, transporting crowds to another dimension.
All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley for vinyl. Each LP includes an 8-page booklet originally housed in the 1981 cassette long-box complete with bi-lingual liner notes, lyrics and photos. 30 years later the futuristic sounds of Europa are ready to usher in another new wave." - Dark Entries.

"Rare funk and avant-garde soul from a seven-year-old kid singer featuring the best musicians of France and the Cameroonian diaspora, recorded in Paris in 1977. The album contains two nicely dramatic tracks: "Ravissante Baby (Negro Phasing)" is a long, hypnotic, funky soukous track with a tremendous lead guitar and a long spoken-word and soulful kid vocal about the beauty of nature; "Look Up in the Sky (Negro Nature)" is a stretched funk groove with psych synth by Michel Morose, bubbling bassline by the great Victor Edimo, the famous Toto Guillaume on guitar, and a brilliant poetic lyric by Francis the Great, who at that time studied in Ménilmontant, Paris. Originally produced by his father, a great impresario of African artists in Paris during the 70s, and coordinated by his mother, this album is unique, fresh, and almost unclassifiable.

The band spins out streams of thick repeato-riffery, while Kassies vocals exhort everyone to explode. Word on the street is that GTs new label has big things in store for them. So Smack the Brick is either gonna be viewed as the end of one era or the beginning on another.

Title: Impossible Symmetry
Format: LP
Label: Pan
Country: UK
Price: $27.00
"Warehouse find, last copies. Impossible Symmetry is the third full length record by Helm, the project of London-based artist Luke Younger. It marks a new chapter in the artists canon as its his first to be informed by live performance rather than studio experimentation. The recording and engineering was primarily a solo venture, with some technical assistance from John Hannon on a few tracks. Most of the compositions were created out of ideas/improvisations that were conceived in a live context and then fed back into the studio work. The album was recorded over the duration of a year in London with source material culled from acoustic sound sources in a similar methodology to his previous album, Cryptography, while also simultaneously incorporating more extensive use of electronic elements and moments of rhythmic dark ambience recalling the outputs from early Coil and Cabaret Voltaire to even Traversable Wormholes industrial minimalism. His last LP, Cryptography, presented a five-part suite of expertly rendered electro-acoustic study which uses processed piano, Casio MT-40, cymbal and broken guitar strings. Younger creates a world where these instruments morph into spectral rust, a shimmering klang swims alongside passive noise and the relationship between acoustic and electronic derived sounds forms a solid foundation. This sound is steered through a mélange of fringe territories: glacial drone meditations, reconfigured gamelan clusters, and howling walls of organized feedback, all coalesced in a post-industrial fashion with a commitment to homemade exploratory zeal. For the past ten years, Younger has also performed extensively in Europe and the U.S. with Steven Warwick as pioneering avant-drone duo Birds Of Delay. The LP was mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering, pressed on 140 gram vinyl and comes in a poly-lined inner sleeve. It is packaged in a pro-press color jacket which itself is housed in a silkscreened PVC sleeve with photos by Traianos Pakioufakis and artwork by Kathryn Politis and Bill Kouligas." - Pan.

performed with several bands, then toured the world and visited Europe, Japan, India, Eastern Canada, and parts of the USA. Apart from rhythm & blues, pop and jazz, he acquired assorted experiences in Middle Age French, electro-acoustic, and modal music. All the travels broadened Ariels musical horizons tremendously; listening to and playing with different styles, people, and instruments, intricate scales, techniques, timing and rhythms. After learning circular breathing from a snake charmer in India, Ariel practiced it on soprano sax (for many sleepless nights) in the basement of a cathedral in New York, when he was not playing upstairs on the large harmonium. Returning to France in late 76, Ariel could include those endless notes into his own long-delay-effect system with which he toured, playing solo concerts. Ariel contributed to the birth of (then) new music genres: minimalist, space, ambient, new age, and electronic. In 1977, Paris, Ariel Kalma was preparing an album of new music. Through an INA connection, Ariel was recommended to Richard Tinti, who had just come back from Borneo (Papua New Guinea) with hours of rainforest ambiences in high quality recordings (on a Nagra recorder). To their amazement, birds and keyboards, flutes and crickets, saxophones and frogs, war drums and (very vintage) drum machines had much in common in terms of pitch, rhythms, effects (i.e. crickets and fast flanged synthesizer). Ariel decided to blend his new compositions with the rainforest atmosphere, and thus Osmose was created. Limited edition of 400.” - Black Sweat.

"A Life Is a Billion Heartbeats continues Yannis Kyriakides and Andy Moors exploration and mining of the rich and mysterious terrain of Greek rebetika music from the early 20th century. Their first release of this project (simply titled Rebetika (2010)) was for the most part taken from a live recording at the Centre for Contemporary Arts, Glasgow, in 2006. In the years that they have been performing the set since, the songs and improvisations featured on this LP have grown and expanded in repertoire and range of expression, giving more space for rhythmic and hypnotic elements to come to the fore. The music ranges from more composed and arranged renditions of the old tunes to completely improvised pieces that try to capture a sense of the gesture and tonalities of the source music, albeit with a contemporary edge. The material derives again from the golden period of rebetika music, the late 20s and early 30s, including voices such as Rita Abatzi, Markos Vamvakaris, Giorgos Batis, and the great guitarist and singer Kostas Bezos.

"Recordings of Mauritanias first modern musical group with some never before released material. Formed in the 1960s, the Orchestre National combined folk instrumentation with brass sections and electric guitars. Dreamy and hypnotic sessions are reminiscent of other post-colonial West African orchestras, but diverge with experiments in Mauritanian classical tradition. Like many of the Orchestras created in post-independence Africa, the National Orchestra of Mauritania was created as an idealogical symbol. To the Mauritanian classical music, with its rigid and complex modal system, the group unabashedly added electric guitars and brass sections. Traditional epics were adapted with contemporary sounds. In 1973, the band released their only official recording -- a 7" containing two live recordings from the Maison de Jeune (with the president in attendance). Five hundred copies were pressed in Beirut, Lebanon, and brought back to Mauritania where they were quickly distributed for free until no copies remained. All but vanished into obscurity in the ensuing decades of military dictatorship, these recordings slated for destruction were salvaged during a 1978 coup détat.

"While sharing the zoned-out sensibility of their brethren (Avarus, The Anaksimandros, Pylon, etc.), Maniacs Dream distinguish themselves with a more eclectic, electric and raucous sound. Their musical vision is archaic and demented, providing the listener with a sonic interpretation of the groups namesake. It is something that can only be experienced, not learned. The tracks on Die, Learn, No Way are driven by ramshackle drumming, repetitive guitar riffs and gurgling/floating electronics - with the occasional mumbled vocal and scraped string thrown in for good measure. The LP is pressed in an edition of 420 and housed in a full colour printed sleeve with incredibly surreal and playful artwork." - HP Cycle.

Artist: MENSTRUATION SISTERS
Title: Samantha (My Wack Panther)
Format: LP
Label: Ecstatic Peace
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Unlike anything book or animal, the Menstruation Sisters destroy wholly" -- Thurston Moore, Sonic Youth. "Menstruation Sisters hail from Sydney, Australia. Basically a duo comprised of wildboy poet ululationist and guitar strangler Nick Kamiussis (aka Rizili aka Riz) and OZ wonderkid Oren Ambarchi (Sunn 0))), Burial Chamber, Grave Temple, John Zorn etc etc), and sometimes aided by Brendan Walls and others. Their first LP, Ma, was in an edition of 100 copies, all of which had razor blades, balloons and hypodermic needles applied to one side. As an objet dart it became a highly desirable item for noise believers (and was recently reissued -- sans appliques -- by No Fun Productions). Every once in a while an LP drops out of nowhere only to further confuse whomever is fortunate enough to grip it. 2005 saw the Holy Africa 7" on White Denim, in 2001 the infamous Goog LP on Saucerlike, in 1999 the Dead At Slugs LP on Menlo Park and in 1998 the Triple Bogey On A Ma Par Hole 3x7". All of these are essential documents of one of the most bizarre, genuinely inspired free time outfits working the avant-mind body love/noise worship axis today. This newest LP has been patiently waiting to be released for the last few years, initially a multi-label project instigated by Menlo Park and now fully realized by Ecstatic Peace. Long a champion of Menstruation Sisters after witnessing an out-of-nowhere set at NYCs legendary lost underground experimental oasis The Cooler in the late 90s, Thurston Moore invited the Sisters to open for Sonic Youth in Sydney shortly thereafter and, as inspired and weird as the NYC set was, the Sonic Youth gig was perhaps one of the most astounding question marks of music the seasoned Moore had ever experienced. So we present you Samantha (My Wack Panther) -- a new and beautiful peek into the edge of musical menstruation." -Ecstatic Peace

Artist: MONOCHROME SET, THE
Title: Spaces Everywhere
Format: LP + CD
Label: Tapete
Country: Germany
Price: $27.00
Includes CD. "On one hand, the music is very melodic and cheerful. The lyrics, however, deal with death, decay, change... no wonder we are rather popular with the undead," says singer, guitarist, and songwriter Bid of Spaces Everywhere, The Monochrome Sets twelfth studio album. A very particular humor. And a unique sound: although this time banjos, Hammond organ, female backing vocals, and even flutes can be heard, experts and laymen alike will recognize: this is The Monochrome Set. Undistorted, nervous guitars, like the soundtrack to a French new wave film... but one starring Michael Caine, Louis de Funès, and Jean-Paul Belmondo and directed by Andy Warhol. Peculiarly timeless, it is a sound that cannot be categorized. Although rooted in the 1950s and 60s (the guitar sound, for example, is a hybrid of Duane Eddys and Sterling Morrisons), it still feels oddly modern. Then there is Bids voice, which this time is more reminiscent of the great American crooners than of Lou Reed. Bid wrote most of the songs in May and June of 2014, and the band recorded them in Brixton, London. Perhaps the bands popularity among the undead will diminish upon hearing the springtime air that can thus be detected in this music. While music historians and critics continue to grapple with the baffling reasons for this bands lack of mainstream success, the in-crowd has always known what they have in The Monochrome Set. Time and again, the story is repeated: Johnny Marr found a single by the band in Morrisseys record collection and decided it might not be a bad idea to start a band with the somewhat eccentric singer. The influence of The Monochrome Set on bands like Felt, Franz Ferdinand, Belle and Sebastian, and The Strokes can hardly be ignored. In early 80s Germany, the band heavily influenced one band in particular, Die Zimmermänner. And like every band that has borrowed more or less from Bid, Lester Square, Andy Warren, and Steve Brummell, they happen to be pretty good. So its fitting that Timo Blunck of Die Zimmermänner was the one to mix Spaces Everywhere in Hamburg. The Monochrome Set present an album that will become a modern classic like Eligible Bachelors and "Strange Boutique." And where is the best place to listen to the album? Bid: "In a deconsecrated church, without a mirror." There he goes again." - Tapete.

Title: All the Colours of the Dark
Format: LP
Label: Finders Keepers
Country: UK
Price: $26.00
"2014 release. Finders Keepers Records proudly unveils what is perhaps the crowning moment for both composer Bruno Nicolai and actress Edwige Fenech, with score of Tutti i colori del buio (All the Colours of the Dark), the film that inaugurated them, with director Sergio Martino, into the giallo canon in 1972. Presented here as an alternative to the extremely rare 1973 Gemelli library edition, this release includes the films previously unreleased hard-hitting left-field psychedelic pop themes performed by a trio of Nicolai with sitar-wielding Alessandro Alessandroni (in true Pawnshop/Braens Machine mode) and Italian cinematic songbird Edda DellOrso. Recorded in January 1972 at Ennio Morricones Ortophonic Studio in Rome (birthplace of Goblins Roller and Alessandronis soundtrack to Sangue di sbirro (Cops Blood) (1976), among many other classics), All the Colours of the Dark is a balance of psychotic free jazz, aggressive bass driven beats, schizoid Eastern motifs, and childlike lullabies -- with the last element augmenting Martinos proud Rosemarys Baby influences in his tale of a rehabilitated relationship plagued by recurring nightmares and vague memories of a religious cult. To claim this score as Nicolais all-time best is perhaps a little hasty for this versatile composer of such acclaim and widespread appeal, but for fans of that unique window of unhinged musical opportunity which came with the giallo boom of the early 1970s, this record epitomizes the world of Fabio Frizzi, Goblin, and Walter Rizzati. Pressed on red vinyl; includes poster.” - Finders Keepers.

Title: The Case of the Bloody Iris
Format: 10
Label: Finders Keepers
Country: UK
Price: $21.00
“2014 release. The last in a series of Italian giallo films produced by Luciano Martino and starring Edwige Fenech and George Hilton, Giuliano Carnimeos 1971 film The Case of the Bloody Iris (also released internationally as What Are Those Strange Drops of Blood Doing On Jennifers Body?) remains a key feature for Italian soundtrack fans and giallo enthusiasts alike. Containing every facet of composer Bruno Nicolais versatile musical matrix, this suite of rich, oblique paranoia pop now makes its vinyl debut via Finders Keepers Records. Drawing on a wide experience of cinematic commissions working as Ennio Morricones closest collaborator (on scores as varied as The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966) and A Lizard in a Womans Skin (1971)), while also providing the exploitation films of Jesús "Jess" Franco (including Marquis de Sade: Justine (1969) and A Virgin Among the Living Dead (1971)) with elaborate integral theme tunes and cues, Nicolai would reveal some of his best, uninhibited ideas in classic giallo films starring Edwige Fenech. Recorded in just two days in July 1972 at the seminal Ortophonic Studio in Rome (birthplace of Goblins Roller, Alessandronis soundtrack to Sangue di sbirro (Cops Blood) (1976), and recordings by Morricone, Vangelis, and New Trolls), Nicolais score for The Case of the Bloody Iris presents the composer working with his small orchestra free from outside influence. With heavy emphasis on arrangements led by bass and rhythm, this up-tempo score balances the avant-garde stylings of the Gruppo di Improvvisazione di Nuova Consonanza with saccharine bossa interjections (which hardcore fans of the genre will associate with Giorgio Gaslinis score to Rivelazioni di un maniaco sessuale al capo della squadra mobile (So Sweet, So Dead) (1972) and Nicolais own score to Eugenie (De Sade 70) (1970)). This music, alongside the previously unpressed score to Sergio Martinos 1972 film All the Colors of the Dark (FKR 071LP), is an integral chapter in the development of 70s Italian film music and the Italian cinematic pop landscape shared by the likes of Claudio Simonetti and Goblin, Bixio, Frizzi & Tempera, Walter Rizzati, and the Reverberi brothers. The score to The Case of the Bloody Iris was never released as a dedicated soundtrack album when the film appeared in late 1972; these tracks are presented on vinyl here for the first time, and this edition also includes two theme variations that didnt make the final theatrical cut of the film.”

Artist: ODWYER, AINE
Title: Music for Church Cleaners Vol. I and II
Format: Dbl LP
Label: MIE
Country: UK
Price: $29.00
"Over the course of several months, Áine ODwyer was given access to the pipe organ in St Marks Church, Islington, while the cleaners were at work. Primarily a harpist, this was a rare opportunity to grapple with the king of instruments and apply her sense of melodic, structured improvisation in a new context. Since its impossible to exert complete control over such a recording environment, she entered into the sessions with a Cagean mindset, embracing extra-musical sounds. This gave the recordings a unique character and concept. With the door left open to serendipity, it can seem that the sonic environment coalesces in sympathetic harmony. Here, the synth-like whoosh of the vacuum cleaner, a childs laughter, various echoed clatters and chatter become part of the music. Improvised music is inevitably influenced by the presence and expectations of an audience... Áine capitulates to the request from the ladies by not staying on one note for a long time, but already did bring music -- that is, the graphic score reproduced in the gatefold. At the end, we can hear that even the recording device itself is subjected to the relentless advance of church cleaning. The album is multifaceted and conceptually satisfying in many ways. Its simultaneously a series of solo improvisations, a site-specific piece of performance art, rich in chance elements, and even qualifies as a field recording, where the transcendent and menial meet. Despite the absence of cheers and applause, its also a live album. In this new extended incarnation, it becomes almost a kind of minimalist opera, with a subtle plot of polite contention softening amid curiosity about the trumpet that takes us out of this most concrete of recordings with a single psychedelicized blast. Metaphysical themes are hard to avoid using an imposing instrument traditionally intended to inspire them. The titles hint at Áines meditative concerns while playing. Here is an Irish lapsed Catholic mind (as Cranley told Dedalus) supersaturated with the religion it rejects: the double meaning implicit in church cleaning, the forbidden deep sounds, the pensive, often brooding hue of the music itself, heavy in every sense. Throughout I hear the dark depths of thoughtfulness, warmth, and mischievous wit that is quintessentially Áine. Originally released as a cassette on Fort Evil Fruit [in 2012], this expanded vinyl edition features new artwork and doubles the albums length, making for a truly immersive experience" - Paul Condon.

Title: 1965/1-∞ (Spur der Zeit)
Format: LP
Label: Edition Bierammer
Country: Germany
Price: $32.00
“Edition of 160 copies. Roman Opalka (1931-2011) was probably the most insisting conceptual artist of the last century. In 1965, in his studio in Warsaw, Opałka began painting numbers from one to infinity. Starting in the top left-hand corner of the canvas and finishing in the bottom right-hand corner, the tiny numbers were painted in horizontal rows. Each new canvas, which the artist called a detail, took up counting where the last left off. In 1968 Opałka introduced to the process a tape recorder, speaking each number into the microphone as he painted it, and also began taking passport-style photographs of himself standing before the canvas after each days work. This LP is a quite unusual & special recording for Roman Opalka. Unlike the two other LP editions (Edition Block 1977 and Ottenhausen Verlag 1980) this is not a straight document of his working / counting process but a multi-layered collage of his voice.” - Edition Bierammer.

Title: A History of Every One
Format: LP
Label: Editions Mego
Country: Austria
Price: $21.00
"A History of Every One by Bill Orcutt is an album of songs: minstrel songs, holiday songs, hymns, marches, cowboy songs, Disney songs, work songs, Delta blues. The original tunes themselves are nothing special, well known, but not particularly well-regarded. Most would be filler on a mid-60s Doris Day or Burl Ives LP. What Orcutt does with them however is remarkable: expanding upon techniques developed on 2011s How the Thing Sings (EMEGO 128CD/LP) and incorporating ideas forged since his recording of "The Star Spangled Banner" during his 2012 tour, Orcutt interrogates the apparent banality of his material, subjecting it to discontinuity, disjuncture and a fractured repetition that is disturbing and revelatory. Titled after a line from Gertrude Steins The Making of Americans and inspired by the scholarship of Elijah Wald and Eric Lott, A History of Every One is a bold re-writing of an important historical thread, an interpretation of a lost text and a bewildering extension upon Orcutts already singular language." - Editions Mego.

1991 release. "Paynes musical imagination is vivid: she is interested in the surreal, the inward, the micro, and the accumulation of physical and psychological tension. Periods of silence gently evolve into flowing drones of complex resonances. Oozing drones evolve into dense and powerful peaks of short duration. On one cut, multi-tracked voices shift in and out of phase, creating alternately shimmering and percussive patterns; on another, digital delay and 32 separate flute tracks create a rain forest where instruments call to each other like chrome birds. The compositions and sounds on this CD have incredible depth, a profound logic and, though not pretty, an irresistible beauty." - Lovely Music.

Artist: PLASTIC TRASH
Title: Slag On the Tracks 1983-1985
Format: CD
Label: Spittle
Country: Italy
Price: $19.00
"Maybe at that time it wasnt so clear as it is today, but Plastic Trash is a perfect name for an 80s group... When I discovered them, 1983 was going to be replaced by Orwellian 1984 and their line-up had [been] stable [for] a year and a half. Our meeting happened thanks to a cassette that I received through the magazine for which I was writing... Those five tracks really impressed me and in my review I even wrote: One of the best demo tapes I ever received. After one year that tape was followed by a new one called In Between Us. Something just a bit more improved and still defined by the same hard-hitting sound alchemies based on guitar, keyboards, rhythm section, and solemn, evocative vocals. Some kind of synthesis not too romantic, not too dark, not too pop with a very inspired songwriting style and a sound that was more professional than most of the Italian tapes and records of the period... [They appeared on] A White Chance, a compilation of local artists moving in their orbit: Go Flamingo!, Intelligence Dept., and Plastic Trash, contributing [three tracks from] In Between Us (All Before You, First Time, and If You Turn Off the Light)... they released a third demo with four tracks, again with no title: the same old formula seemed to be enriched by a saxophone leading towards some kind of more commercial (new) wave. The wish of breaking through to a wider audience seemed to be a pretentious dream of glory that never came true; after some more concerts, most of them with a new drummer, in 1990 Plastic Trash realized that the time had come to give up. In 2013, while I was working on my book Noi conquisteremo la luna, I found the three demos, and listening back after all those years they still sounded fresh and dynamic and even brilliant sometimes. Thats how the wish (moral imperative?) of bringing together Slag On the Tracks took shape, as a sort of remedy to the unjustified limited diffusion of that material. In chronological order, the 15 tracks correspond to the bands entire studio legacy. All first choice material and absolutely no slags. So, no reason for any skepticism. Take my word for it." - Federico Guglielmi, June 2014.

Artist: PLASTICOST
Title: Canzoni Dada, 1981-1985
Format: CD
Label: Spittle
Country: Italy
Price: $19.00
"If this band from Vicenza found a place in Italian rock history, it is mainly because of their [1983] debut [self-titled] mini-LP... duly presented here at the beginning of the tracklist. I hope the frontman Sergio Volpato will forgive me if I say that, despite the quality of the following releases, their mythical status (small as it may be) is owed to that first piece of vinyl originally released by LM Records and coproduced by Discotape, a record store in Marostica. An enigmatic cover, a made-up name inspired by the original Plastic Host (a sort of subtle attack against Catholic religion), 23 minutes of music, a sequence of four songs opened by Canzone Dada (Dada Song), a real anthem, with striking lyrics adapted from a 1923 text by Tristan Tzara. Even if the just mentioned 12" represents the core of the present CD, the rest of the program appears pretty interesting as well. Panorama was recorded just a bit later for the Rockgarage Compilation Vol. 4 (the last of a series of [various artists] records produced by a Venetian fanzine) and re-released in 1987 on Evviva Evviva, an EP which started a new more pop-oriented era. The other 12 tracks never found their way to vinyl, while they made it on cassette tape, some of them sold with fanzines. The whole of the 17 songs represents the complete studio works from the first period, when the band was more in tune with the post-punk attitude. We had the chance of adding a few alternate takes, but we chose only the best versions. Thirty-one years ago, while reviewing Plasticost, I used a quite uncommon term for me: originality. I want to confirm that today because, beyond some inevitable influences from abroad, this material still shows some really peculiar aspects: unconventional sound textures, a theatrical vocal approach and a weird, ironic and creative spirit that within live performances were combined in some sort of sound and visual extravaganza. Something very unusual, considering how much the new wave circuit of the period was generally austere. Rock meets Dada? Of course! Otherwise why such an explicit title?" - Federico Guglielmi, July 2014.

Format: CD

Country: Germany
Price: $19.00
"Bureau B presents the third release in its Kollektion series, a volume highlighting the music of Populäre Mechanik, the 1980s post-punk/jazz project of Ton Steine Scherben founder Wolfgang Seidel. Seidel describes the development of Populäre Mechanik after his departure from Ton Steine Scherben: "The music of Ton Steine Scherben soon lost its fascination for me, so before long I quit the band. I was far more intrigued by the music performance club Zodiak Free Arts Lab run by Beuys student Conrad Schnitzler. The Zodiak had one white room and an empty black room, the latter used for concerts. And what concerts they were! A poster announced: Totally free music. Everyone plays. Anyone plays. Everyone can do it.... I teamed up with Schnitzler, but there was no room for a drum kit in his little studio. Instead, I started playing around with synthesizers and transposed the rhythms I had played on drums, prompting Schnitzler to nickname me Sequenza. As the years passed by, however, I started to miss the drums, so in the late 1970s I replied to a small ad and found a few musicians roughly the same age as me. Our stories were similar, having begun with rock music in the 1960s. We were not the kind of folk who wallowed in nostalgia, having grown disenchanted with the direction rock had taken. Rock was clearly developing into a soundtrack for squares. Punk was far more attractive to us. It reminded us of the 1960s, rather to the annoyance of the punks. Still, we maintained a certain distance. We shared punks dislike of the way rock and roll had developed, but beer-fuelled nihilism was not our style. Devo and XTC were the kind of bands we really got excited about. And there were also jazz musicians who wanted away from the entertainment circuit for sophisticates. These two ingredients blended into the music of Populäre Mechanik... The bands strategy for resisting assimilation into any scene was the creation of a cassette label -- allowing us to release our music quickly and cheaply. With a 4-track tape recorder and a healthy appetite for experimentation, we jammed endlessly ages before selecting the most interesting recordings." This collection, curated by Palais Schaumburg founder Holger Hiller, includes tracks from two Populäre Mechanik cassettes from the early 1980s, never before available on CD or vinyl. The accompanying booklet includes Hillers interview with Seidel, in which they discuss the function of rock and pop music over the past 45 years." - Bureau B.

Lyrics, ranging from the existential questioning of "Why is the Orangutan so slippery when you trying to speak with him?" to the functional and thrifty "And this barn is cheap, saving our money for the next trip", are more spoken then sung, and like the last album, remain pretty upfront and prominent in the mix. though still are a fare share of both short and long instrumental bits, one a 7 minute work out on a studio drum set and another a 7 minute slow-paced electronic dirge (both these songs end their respective album in a late 90s sort of way).

Without his solo works and his projects Kluster, Tangerine Dream and Eruption, electronic music wouldnt be the same." - M=Minimal.

Price: $14.00
"Charles Cohen uses his Buchla Music Easel to replay Indonesian hardcore band Senyawas "Di Kala Sudah." While enjoying a few months in Germany, Cohen conducted a ritualistic tonal re-adaptation, flushing the song through layers of spaced-out, orchestrated grooves. Meanwhile, in the U.S., explorer of the deepest depths Robert Turman smashed Cohens "Conundrums" into small bits and recrafted it in his own masterful manner. His beaten and edited version displays ability similar to Cohens, melting down the metal in a sound and forging it into new and expanding shapes." - Morphine.

Artist: SHIFLET & HIGH AURAD, MIKE
Title: Awake
Format: LP
Label: Type
Country: UK
Price: $21.00
"Awake is a collaboration between noise veteran Mike Shiflet and guitarist John Kolodij (aka High Aurad), and was recorded over the course of three autumn days in Kolodijs Rhode Island studio. This isnt your expected by-email collaboration though; rather, the two sat together in the same room with amps humming and strings vibrating, letting the space and the physicality dictate the music. The sessions were improvisational in nature, and as the recordings were cleaned up and edited, only sparse field recordings were added to enhance the live takes. Its a record that might sound electronic in parts -- indeed, echoes of Tim Hecker or Yellow Swans are present throughout -- but has the guitar at its core. Awake is a direct descendent of Godspeed You! Black Emperor or even Glenn Branca, but has been smudged, distorted, and delayed beyond recognition. Whats left are traces -- the ghosts and outlines of songs, trapped in a fog of white noise and overdrive -- and the end result is disarmingly serene. Mastered and cut by Matt Colton. Edition of 500 copies." - Awake.

Title: Check Point Charlie
Format: Double LP
Label: Holidays
Country: Italy
Price: $34.00
"Born in Paris in 1947, Ghédalia Tazartés started singing when he was twelve years old, creating his own language. He began a professional career in dance, theatre, and cinema while still giving some occasional concerts and publishing a few albums, each one of them an acclaimed masterpiece. Recorded in 1989 and originally released by Aaya in 1990, Check Point Charlie is the first work by Tazartés conceived for the compact disc format and its different time boundaries. The result is a 60 minute long collection of layered field recordings combined into a polyphonic ceremony filled by his typical multi-tracked vocals, between a gibberish scream and the muezzins call to prayer. A unique record that -- after almost 25 years -- is finally enjoyable with the depth of sound that only a vinyl release can give." -Holidays.

Title: Hysterie Off Music
Format: LP
Label: Holidays
Country: Italy
Price: $26.00
“At the beginning, Hystérie Off Music was conceived as a catalog record, an open field where the author could play with all musical genres and their stereotypes. But it rapidly evolved into an uncompromising clash of field recordings, sampled instruments, and Ghédalia Tazartès incomparable vocal eclecticism, made of emotional psalms and shamanic hymns. The encyclopedia of genres turns into a childish -- and sometimes scary -- play, and the song titles mislead the listener, introducing a completely new classification. Recorded in the early 2000s and released on CD in 2007 by the French label Jardin Au Fou, its now available in a remastered vinyl version -- with an excellent cut made by SST in Frankfurt -- for the best listening experience of this cinematic electronic collage. A true movie for the ear.” - Holidays.

"Garage is Scandinavian free jazz trio The Things acclaimed third album, originally released in 2004 by the Norwegian label Smalltown Superjazzz.

Artist: TRICOLI, VALERIO
Title: Miseri Lares
Format: Double LP
Label: Pan
Country: UK
Price: $31.00
"Limited repress. It has been 7 years since Metaprogramming from Within the Eye of the Storm, the last solo full-length release by Valerio Tricoli. In the years between, he has established himself as a formidable presence on the international experimental live circuit and released acclaimed collaborations with Antoine Chessex, Coi Tormenti (Dilemma Records, 2010) and Thomas Ankersmit, Forma II (PAN 016CD, 2011) along with the fifth full-length release by his band with fellow Italian cohorts 3/4HadBeenEliminated, Oblivion (ZEIT 011CD, 2010). Throughout these shows, collaborations and ongoing explorations, Valerio has developed on his signature style of beautifully unsettling musique concrète. The result of his tireless explorations, Miseri Lares is his magnum opus, a multilayered and heavily nuanced work which epitomizes the uncanny in the realm of sound. Miseri Lares explores a variety of interlocking themes and sonic tapestries that combine in a quietly disturbing and deeply existential work. As a contemporary take on musique concrète, Tricoli utilizes his full explorations of the Revox tape recorder alongside digital processing, while retaining all of the mystery and surprise elements found in the classic approach of pioneers such as Bernard Parmegiani, Eugeniusz Rudnik and Michel Chion. Themes of the internal, represented by both the psychological and the physical, play throughout the record. As a symbol of spirits preying on the grief within, haunting wisps of sound swirl around a throbbing bass in "Hic Labor Ille Domus et Inextricabilis Error," whereas "La Casa Deviata" emphasizes the paranoid structure as looming creaks make way for abandoned pipes and a cloud of escaping water. Here, the tension at play is injected with a treated Dictaphone recording: "Tell me what happened," "I cant remember? THE SMELL!!! There was a tape recorder, where is the tape?" Spoken text (Italian and English) appears throughout the record, mostly as texture or as a dehumanized floorboard -- a play on the albums themes of the psychological, emotional and irrational horror within. Texts by Italian poets Dante and Guido Ceronetti appear alongside excerpts from The Ecclesiastes (in Hebrew, Qohelet), H.P. Lovecraft, E. M. Cioran, and writings by Tricoli himself. These add an extra weight to the recording, making it reminiscent of Robert Ashley or even the comedic tragedy of later-day Scott Walker (baritone aside). Valerio Tricolis release for PAN adds another piece to the puzzle of narrative-based concrète music, while deviating from all conventional forms and playing out like a literary form of unsettling sound sculpture. 2LP mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering, pressed on 140 gram vinyl. Vinyl set packaged in a pro-press jacket which itself is housed in a silkscreened PVC sleeve with photography by Traianos Pakioufakis and artwork by Bill Kouligas." - Pan.

Artist: TUUSANUUSKAT
Title: Nääksää Nää Mun Kyyneleet
Format: LP
Label: Fonal
Country: Finland
Price: $22.00
"Tuusanuuskat is a collaboration between Es and Tomutonttu. The name of the project Tuusanuuskat is a play on words derived from the phrase "tuusan nuuskana," (trans. "total shambles"). It is a Finnish saying that is used when something has broken to a million pieces. The phrase is generally used in a playful context, and often received with laughter. If you Google "tuusan nuuskana," some of the first hits youll get are: "After birth; private parts tuusan nuuskana," "Ferrari tuusan nuuskana" and "Steve Jobs mansion tuusan nuuskana." Yes, they have chosen their name wisely. Es is a project of Sami Sänpäkkilä, a musician, filmmaker and the head of Fonal Records. To date, he has released five full-length albums, and made tons of short films and music videos. He also scored the soundtrack to the Swedish award-winning film Apflikorna. His music and films are experimental moodscapes that explore the themes of melancholy, pathos and hope. Tomutonttu (trans. "dust gnome") is a human by the name of Jan Anderzén, a visual artist and leader of the respected avant-garde sound group Kemialliset Ystävät. Toy reed streams, mutilated vocals and groovy loops of animal noise are just some of the colors used to create the whirling mess that is the lonely song of Tomutonttu. His discography is a labyrinth reflecting the nature of his music. Together, they have prepared an experimental cocktail that sounds like two drunken masters of music, conducting the protons and neutrons travelling from their instruments to their skulls and back, to create a musical nucleus. The packaging both displays Fonals customary attention to detail. It includes a striped acetate film, that when placed over the cover, creates an animated sequence of images. The illusion works on the persistence of vision principle. The covers are designed and produced by Jari Suominen (of fellow Fonal recording artists Jarse and Shogun Kunitoki). Limited edition run of 500 copies." - Fonal.

Artist: TWEDDLE, CHARLIE
Title: Fantastic Greatest Hits
Format: Double LP
Label: Ever/Never
Country: USA
Price: $27.00
"Born and raised in Kentucky but calling Northern California home for some time now, Charlie Tweddle is an outsider polymath: musician, artist, taxidermist, designer of cowboy hats. And while that last one (imagine a wearable ten-gallon peyote trip) brought him a degree of notoriety among a certain swath of the showbiz elite beginning in the early seventies (Cher and Reggie Jackson are fans of his hats), it’s his music that has been peaking the curiosity of underground and private press fiends for some years now.

A beguiling patchwork of lo-fi country, warped folk, and way-gone found sounds, Tweddle’s 1974 self-released opus Fantastic Greatest Hits is back in print for the first time in decades.The estimable chronicler of all things underground and way out the late Patrick Lundborg dubbed Fantastic “one of the major pieces in the Fringe of Everything genre.” Indeed, the album is clearly the work of a rustic iconoclast following his own hidden path, yet there is something peculiarly inviting at play here as well. The A-side comes off like a lysergic hootenanny that shares as much in common with Mike Rep and first-generation Shrimper tapes on the one hand as it does with Townes Van Zandt and Mickey Newbury on the other; while the B-side is a sort of Americana concrète piece where the gentle beat of the earth takes over, full of crickets and the wind. Cosmic country indeed.

Essentially impossible to find since its initial release, Fantastic has been lovingly reissued as a co-production from Mighty Mouth Music (who released Tweddle’s The Midnight Plowboy in 2012, a collection of slightly more straightforward but no less charmingly odd country tracks recorded in the 1990s) and Ever/Never Records. The double-LP gatefold set presents the original 1974 LP and a bonus LP of recently unearthed experiments from the early ‘70s. This is essential stuff for fans of psychedelic roots music, loner singer-songwriters, or just plain strange sounds." - Ever/Never.

“First vinyl reissue of a highly-sought after electronic abstract future jazz release by Italian soundtrack and library music composer Piero Umiliani, originally released on Umilianis label Omicron in 1980 under the pseudonym Moggi. Umilianis releases are generally expensive and hard to find, and Tra Scienza e Fantascienza is no exception. Umiliani was a master, gifted with a never-ending passion for music, and an experimental innovator who manipulated synthesizers with ease, forging a sound that could be reductively termed avant-garde. Timeless atmospheres and alien hypnotic sonorities that are modern and charmingly retro; minimal and complex; arranged with precision. Umiliani was way ahead of his time; hear, for instance, "Happy Accompaniment": it sounds like a 2015 minimal house track.” - We Release..

Price: $14.00
"Consider "Circle Snare" a hard-wrought souvenir. Composed and realized in the midst of a comprehensive Scandinavian/European tour in 2008, John Wiese found himself tangled deep in dialogue with his instruments and ideas. Wiese increasingly scrutinized his native tongue and vocabulary, seeking new forms of grammar and cadence, as only extensive dives in unfamiliar waters can inspire. His given electronic anatomy of drum machine, microphones, tapes, and MSP folded out of their hard accustomed formations, breaking out into a more cogent and vital arsenal. "Circle Snare" is the cumulative result -- a finely detailed and dimensional evolution of an already unique voice. Those who have been stalking Wiese all along -- through the landmark statement "Soft Punk," to the recent "Dramatic Accessories" LP -- will find "Circle Snare" to be a revelatory work. As Wiese continues to travel and work relentlessly and restlessly, we have no choice but to keep up; the circle is a spiral from the side, and the greatest trap is standing still." -No Fun

"Back in 1982 at the age of 24 I bought my first recording equipment a -- two-track Teac reel-to-reel-tape recorder. I already owned a number of analog synthesizers, an electric & acoustic guitar, various effect boxes, and a full drum set. The music was recorded live over a two year period (1982-1983) when I was still playing in Liquid Liquid. I was busy with the band but I still found time at home to experiment with my own sound using various instruments and vocal effects. In early 1984, I bought my first four-track cassette machine which ended my live reel-to-reel recording phase. The tapes were boxed up and put into storage for the next 30 years. About six months ago, I was going through some old boxes and happened to find the tapes again. I was curious to hear what I had on those tapes so I purchased another Teac reel-to-reel-tape recorder. To my surprise there was a lot of music to choose from these recordings, so after hours of listening I came up with a set of songs that I thought was the best representation of my work from this period. Thanks to Staubgold, I am able to share this unique recording experience with you, the listener." - Dennis Young.

Label: Karlrecords
Country: Germany
Price: $21.00
"180 gram pressing, gatefold sleeve, limited to 500, includes download code. On his second release with Zeitkratzer, Keiji Haino concentrates solely on his voice. No electronics are used except for amplification. Nevertheless, this live recording is even more radical than the first one. Radical is the concentration on the very limited but frenetic musical material, worked out in detail, which is rarely heard in the noise context -- enabling Keiji Haino to sit on it, fly over, to merge or just to oppose. Zeitkratzers amplified instruments, played with extended techniques as developed by the group and its outstanding musicians over more than a decade and Hainos incredible richness in voice timbres and noises complement each other perfectly. Its one of the closest and most natural cooperations Zeitkratzer ever had. Wild and beautiful. Shouting, scratching, screaming, piping, chattering, crying, rumbling, oscillating, roaring, clashing, juttering, tinkling, singing, ... and at the end, its hilarious, powerful music, pure noise and pure melody. As the Chicago Reader noted: "The supernova finally occurs!" and The Wire agreed: "A real highlight, with Zeitkratzer enfolding Keiji Haino in its grasp like some tentacular kraken of the deep. Haino effectively becomes another member of the group." Rock-a-Rolla cheered: "Forceful and utterly compelling!" Nothing left to say than: listen! Zeitkratzer is directed by Reinhold Friedl: Frank Gratkowski (clarinets); Hild Sofie Tafjord (French horn); Hilary Jeffery (trombone); Reinhold Friedl (piano); Marc Weiser (acoustic noises); Maurice de Martin (percussion); Burkhard Schlothauer (violin); Anton Lukoszevieze (violoncello); + Keiji Haino (voice); Recorded live at Jahrhunderthalle Bochum, Ruhrtriennale.
