Artist: BACHMAN, DANIEL
Title: Grey-Black-Green
Format: LP
Label: Feeding Tube
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
“First vinylization of the 2011 CD-R release, with which Daniel Bachman shucked the performing name hed been using (Sacred Harp) and laid his naked ass on the line. Bachman already sounds like a wizened player here (an image that was solidified when his mug was plastered on the box for Tompkins Squares "Obscure Giants of Acoustic Guitar" trading cards), but he was actually still a babe of the Fredericksburg woods at the time this came out. Regardless, his technique is massive, and his approach to the material -- based on a color-wheel tuning system developed by the late Robbie Basho -- is intense. Recorded onto a boom-box, with a hi-fi quotient of nil, the material here reminds one of what Bill Orcutt might sound like if he decided to play in longer format time-chunks. Theres a wonderful kind of containment to the music -- suggesting deep investigation and improvisation with hermetic knowledge rather than anything constrictive -- which gives this album a sense of spirituality one rarely finds outside the New Age bin. Bachman is a master player, and the evidence of this is apparent even at this relatively early stage of his trajectory. Through constant touring and wood-sheddding, Daniels music has evolved in multiple directions over the intervening years, but Grey-Black-Green remains one of the true and unique high watermarks of his recordings. How great to have it on vinyl at long last. Includes a download code.” - Feeding Tube.

Artist: CAESAR, J.A.
Title: Kokkyou Junreika
Format: LP
Label: Phoenix
Country: UK
Price: $23.00
"Tokyo playwright, director and artist J.A. Caesar sprang to prominence in the early 70s largely through his work with Shuji Terayamas Tenjo Sajiki Theatre, specializing in vaguely sinister music reminiscent of a Hammer House Of Horrors soundtrack. 1973s Kokkyou Junreika release, often considered Caesars finest work, was culled from the 5 hours of music written for the original play, distilled down to an albums worth of ageless chants, Buddhist mantras, heavenly invocations and fuzztone guitar vamps supported by Caesars droning electric organ and the eerie female vocals of Yoko Ran, Keiko Shinko and Seigo Showa. An album that sits comfortably alongside early Ash Ra Tempel, Cosmic Jokers and Atem-period Tangerine Dream. Those that like their music with a healthy dose of gloom, look no further. Housed in a gatefold sleeve." -Phoenix

Artist: CARTER, CHRISTINA
Title: Character Study
Format: 12"/Chapbook
Label: Drawing Room
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Her first release on Drawing Room Records, the EP, comprised of two smoldering sidelong tracks, titled "Survival" and "Salvation", finds Carter furthering her expansive work in song.  The compositions are built with transfixing electric slide-guitar, dancing tambourine, shivering bells and sparse, foreboding effects. "Survival" moves from invocation to drowsy reverie to harrowing possession, punctuated by a major spoken discourse on the complicity of the artist. "Salvation", a striking recitation of the ill-effects of this societys insufficient symbols, moves from lush song-chant to syllable stripped bare, captured in time. The chapbook is equal parts prose poem and critical inquiry, presenting an interrogation of the artists existential relevance in the 21st century. Reminiscent of work on Carters Many Breaths imprint (Trickster Who Is Like God, Imaginee, Texas Modern Exorcism), the Character Study EP represents the first widely available release documenting six years of development within Christinas unique voice/sound/text aesthetic.  In addition, both the EP and the chapbook sleeves were elegantly printed bymJeff Mueller of Dexterity Press.   Character Study is an essential release in this peerless artists catalog." - Drawing Room.

Artist: CLEAN, THE
Title: Odditties
Format: Double LP
Label: 540
Country: USA
Price: $25.00
"Its interesting to note that by the time most folks in the northern hemisphere got their first taste of The Clean (circa 1985), they all but packed it in. Yep, tis true. 85 was the year of the first great Kiwi invasion (vinyl wise) with the Flying Nun roster leading the way. And there was nary a dud to be found. And such wonderful and unusual names: Tall Dwarfs, Sneaky Feelings, The Puddle, Scorched Earth Policy and of course, The Clean. Their trio of 12" EPs were rabidly devoured by a curious and enthusiastic cognoscenti. You didnt buy one, you bought em all. Same goes for the 7-inchers. And there just wasnt enough. Not only of Clean records, but Clean material! Then one day in some long forgotten order came a copy of the Odditties cassette. The sales rep had included it as a promo, claiming he couldnt shift em (cassette love being at something of a nadir back then). Ill take whatever you got was my reply. And I hadnt even played it yet. But I knew that even though it had gotten runted out on to tape only format, there was no doubt it contained a treasure trove of aural gems. You couldnt help but think that Odditties was to The Clean what Whatever Happens Next was to Swell Maps. Which, more or less, is what it is. Recorded between 1980-82 Odditties is a thorough compendium of alternate takes, addled miscues, riffing zoners and back burner gems. Never easy to come by, even the CD version had scant distro through the 90s. This bunch of songs has been tagged as the ones that got away. But hold on there pard, this story aint done. Cut to 2012 and the inimitable Austin label, Five Four O, has taken up the call and wrangled this behemoth of slippery southern psychedelia into the format it has always so richly deserved: the double LP. Housed in fetching and historical gatefold sleeve to boot." - 540.

Artist: CLUSTER
Title: One Hour
Format: LP
Label: Bureau B
Country: Germany
Price: $22.00
180 gram vinyl. "Clusters hiatus between Curiosum (BB 038CD/LP) and Apropos Cluster (BB 171CD/LP) in 1990 lasted for almost 10 years. Roedelius and Moebius spent this time developing their individual musical characteristics in a series of solo albums and collaborations which they released with other musicians. Naturally, they also thoroughly explored newly emerging digital technology. Clusters music evolved substantially through this decade, less so in basic style (color had simply been added to Clusters world), but more in a more mature handling of rhythm, harmony and melody. If Apropos Cluster had been the fulminant reboot, then One Hour four years later already represented a fully-formed progression of the new concept. Roedelius and Moebius stayed true to their spirit of improvisation, playing together with a minimum of prior arrangements. So, in the duos finest tradition, One Hour is the product of two sessions recorded in the studio of musician and sound engineer Eric Spitzer-Marlyn in Austria. Sixty minutes were selected from the most interesting passages and assembled into a coherent, cohesive musical sequence. The askesis in the apparent matter-of-factness and lightness of One Hour is an expression of strict artistic conception. Nothing veers off course, not a single flash of genius is overplayed. Moebius and Roedelius guide their listeners deeper and deeper into the fantastical realm of musical extravaganzas. One image follows the next, disappearing in similarly unhurried fashion to be replaced by another. As placid as One Hour may seem, the album is nothing less than meditative. This is not ambient music. High impressionism would be a more apposite description. Appreciating the fleeting imagery and flow of ideas requires the listeners undivided attention. Using Cluster as acoustic room scent would be a hopeless undertaking. The exquisite particles of sound would dissipate far too quickly and ineffectively." --Asmus Tietchens

Artist: COITUS INT.
Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Bunkerpop
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Three years after our re-release of the bands debut 7", were finally happy to announce Coïtus Int.s reissued debut self-titled LP from 1981. Reacting to the lack of creativity among punk rock bands in Utrecht at the time, Coïtus Int. revealed a slower, darker, bass-driven approach to their music on this record. An essential companion to their Dead Excitement EP, its the beginning of a remarkable but largely overlooked 15-year career of self-released music.
Heino LOrtyes bass is the lead melodic instrument here, serving the Gang Of Four-inspired attacks from Marcel Uffings guitar. Drummer Ron van Asperen has a simple but memorable style, churning the bands heavy, plodding songs into different directions, particularly on tracks like "Birds" and "My Ideal Man". When separates this group from rest, perhaps more than anything, is Jos de Groots thoughtful lyrics and unique voice. His delivery is distant but honest, and has a tone that makes you feel like he has seen things that you havent, and that you may never understand... but you believe him. Edition of 500." - Bunkerpop. "Sounds fantastic! Better than the original!" - Jos de Groot.

Artist: CRIME
Title: Murder By Guitar
Format: LP
Label: Superior Viaduct
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"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.

Artist: CURGENVEN, ROBERT
Title: Sirène - Selected Pipe Organ Works 1983-2014
Format: LP
Label: Recorded Fields Editions
Country: UK
Price: $25.00
"It was the discovery in Australia of a 1932 photograph of Robert Curgenvens grandfather -- whose grandfather in turn had emigrated from Cornwall to Australia back in the 1800s -- which was the inspiration that brought Sirène together. Five generations after that first migration across the ocean, Robert Curgenven had been the first of his line to return to the Atlantic peninsula after many years in central and northern Australia. In Cornwall, living amongst the familiar climes of wild country, hed returned also to his first instrument, the pipe organ, where his ideas about composition, pursued since his earliest pieces made over three decades before, were consolidated though hours of recordings in centuries-old Cornish churches to become the selection of works etched on Sirène. In part a companion piece prefacing a visceral forthcoming album about settler colonialism, Sirène proves just as visceral in its own right. As with the Turner painting, "Snow Storm - Steam Boat Off a Harbours Mouth," that adorns the back cover and whose story is at the heart of an eponymous track which bodily charts this myth of biography, Sirène sends listeners across roiling oceans billowing humid air, beneath plunging coastlines. Amid this elemental immersion, Curgenven asks what is it to belong to a land, or even to this ever-changing country? Cornwall has been home to thousands of years of tin mining, with a tin trade dating back beyond the Bronze Age and the Phoenicians. With a colonial history of its own, empires around and within it have come and gone like its rugged granite cliffs, which once stood miles away in the days of Cornubia. Like that coast, the citizenry has remained in a slow process of transformation -- waves of imperialism wash over and across Cornwall, as they did on Calibans horizon in his own Tempest. Sirène is not a kind of nostalgia or looking back, nor a looking forward into an imagined future, but instead it views time, lineage, and nationhood as a process and a continuum of change. Pressed on limited clear vinyl." - Recorded Fields.

Artist: DE MEY, YVES
Title: Metrics
Format: LP
Label: Opal Tapes
Country: UK
Price: $20.00
“Brussels-based Yves De Meys minimal discography belies his profound ability for sound design and narrative in electronic music. Previous releases on LINE and Sandwell District have blended techno and sonic art practices into an abstract landscape full of disjointed rhythm, cavernous depth and an enduring originality in his choice of sound. This 12" release on Opal Tapes consolidates those practices with a darker sonic palette than usual. "Box Caisson" opens side A with an ultra-deep shuffle through open circuitry, amp buzz and stabbing kick and bass line combination. Side B both brightens and darkens simultaneously as a stronger sense of melody is introduced on "Eye Splice," a cinematic cut evoking science/fact industrial work lines and gelatinous mid-range detailing.” - Opal Tapes.

Price: $33.00
“Third vinyl outing for Manchester, UK free-rock guitar army Desmadrados Soldados de Ventura. This one is a monster double LP comprising four heads-down slabs of perpetual crescendo veering between raging, pseudo-biker rock psychedelics, unhinged Japanese style freakout and fractured funkadelicisms. Recorded at the bands unofficial HQ at Sunshine Studios by local legend Patrick Crane, this is a molten third eye opener shooting ecstatic vibrations straight to the pranic centers. Limited to 300 copies.” - Golden Lab.

Artist: DIE SCHACHT
Title: Halber Selbstbetrug
Format: 7"
Label: Siltbreeze
Country: USA
Price: $9.00
"This contemporary Berlin outfits musikalische klänge is so perfectly informed by the bare-knuckled scrappers of the Neue Deutsche Welle fringe that one might half-expect to find a matrix for Pure Freude, Rondo or Moderne Musik Tontrager scratched into the runoff. But, no, its here, its now, and its the first German release ever on Siltbreeze. If the frenzied staccato of S.Y.P.H., Das Name or Mittagspause is what helps goose the lederhosen up the legs, then DIE SCHACHTa gurgling oink is the perfect lube to slap them around the hips. Pressed in an edition of 300 copies." - Siltbreeze.

Artist: DORJI, TASHI
Title: Tashi Dorji
Format: LP
Label: Hermit Hut
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"Tashi Dorji grew up in Bhutan, on the eastern side of the Himalayas. Access to any music created outside the country is limited, as are most cultural options, given the geologically isolation of the country. How Dorji went from a life so remote to developing his innovative and revelatory guitar style is mind-boggling. Yearning for access to the world outside, Dorji pursued and obtained a fully-paid scholarship to a liberal arts school in Asheville, NC, in his early twenties. Hes since settled in there (save a short stint in Maine), soaking up a vast array of music, most notably the works of Derek Bailey and John Zorn. Along the way, Dorji developed a playing style unbound by tradition, yet with a direct line to intuitive artistry. His recordings feature improvisations that spasmodically grow along tangential, surprising paths. All references break loose during a composition, as Dorji keys into his own inner world. After a handful of cassettes on various labels, Dorji presents his first proper album on Hermit Hut, the label created by Ben Chasny (Six Organs of Admittance) and inspired by spreading word of Dorjis talents. The six compositions here are hand-picked by Dorji and Chasny as the most representative and far-reaching of his recordings. Taken together, they announce a new guitar music unlike anything being made today." - Hermit Hut.

Artist: ELEVEN TWENTY-NINE
Title: A Tithe To Hell
Format: 12"
Label: Drawing Room
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"For its eighth label release, Drawing Room presents the second album from the enigmatic Eleven Twenty-Nine.  Eleven Twenty-Nine -- Tom Carter and Marc Orleans on guitar and Michael Evans on drums -- are masters of incendiary free rock, drawing on lineage that includes but is definitely not limited to Charalambides, Sunburned Hand of the Man, and God Is My Co-Pilot. Eleven Twenty-Nines second full-length album A Tithe To Hell explores far darker and heavier improvisational worlds than their Northern Spy debut. Charting hidden infernos of sounds with ostensibly ‘rock instrumentation, these three gifted musicians spill free-flowing sounds that sweep the listener into hermetic spaces outside of consensual genre boundaries. For lovers of Charalambides, Bardo Pond, Sunburned, and free music of all genres, A Tithe To Hell is an essential listen.  Pressed on 180-gram vinyl." - Drawing Room.

Artist: FLOWER TRAVELLIN BAND
Title: Satori
Format: LP
Label: Phoenix
Country: UK
Price: $23.00
“2014 repress. Deluxe LP format; 180 gram pressing. Reissue of the second Flower Travellin Band album, originally issued by Atlantic Records in Japan in 1971. Satori is a conceptual hard rock/psych album driven by Hideki Ishimas furious guitar licks which erupt and explode over the harmonic heart beat of the drums and bass. Yamanakas banshee-like vocal style turned him into an occidental Iggy Pop or Robert Plant while the band itself was rapidly becoming Japans answer to Led Zeppelin. Satori is a huge album in every way. From power chords to Eastern-tinged North African six-string freak-outs and crashing tom-toms, the band flexes its collective muscle from start to finish. In short, this is a real rock classic of the type they simply dont make any more.” - Phoenix.

Title: Dreaming With Alice

Label: Sunbeam
Country: UK
Price: $27.00
2012 Repress. "Previously reissued on CD by Sunbeam, now issued in a limited, deluxe audiophile Sunbeam Masters vinyl edition; 180 gram pressing. One of the most enigmatic albums of all time and the very epitome of "acid folk," Dreaming With Alice is firmly established as one of the worlds most sought-after records. Recorded when Mark Fry was still a teenager, and only released in Italy in 1972, Dreaming With Alice is a beguilingly strange and melodic song cycle echo, with fuzzed wah-wah guitar and backwards tapes that has been much bootlegged but never officially reissued... until now. Complete with rare photographs and liner notes by Fry himself, this is an essential purchase for all fans of psychedelic singer/songwriting. This limited special edition is manufactured to the highest standards in a hand-numbered edition of 1000, pressed on 180 gram virgin vinyl and comes housed in a thick card sleeve with pasted slicks. Included is a 12-page large-format full-color booklet with previously-unseen memorabilia and photographs from the artists private collection." -Sunbeam. Very highly recommended!!

Here Hiiragi mines (spikes?) a different vein, guitar has taken a backseat to organ and its so fuzzy itll dry out your mouth. Written in loving tribute to the late Jim Marshall, channeled via Suicide and smoke filled rooms. Flip is a sunny mellow cha cha cha (duh) so relaxing im suggesting you get a prescription. Follows up releases on Sloow Tapes and (Hiiragis own amazing) Fuyusoubi Music. Also, Selection will be re-releasing Hiiragis 2nd full length "My Turntable Is Slow" on LP in Fall 2012.

Artist: GRUPPO DI IMPROVVISAZIONE NUOVA CONSONANZA
Title: Gruppo di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza
Format: LP
Label: Superior Viaduct
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"Considered the first collective of experimental composers, Gruppo dImprovvisazione Nuova Consonanza formed in 1964 in Rome to chase the expressive potential of live improvisation to its furthest reaches. Led by Franco Evangelisti, Gruppo also included Ennio Morricone before he found fame composing soundtracks. The ensemble advanced the innovations of 20th century avantgarde in laboratory-like studio settings where the intuitive interplay between members flourished. Before 1976s benchmark release, Musica Su Schemi, Gruppo recorded this eponymous album in 1973. Whether the passages are jarring or soothing, clamorous or silken, the ensemble retains astounding organic coherence. An ultra-rare entry in Gruppos formidable discography, Gruppo dImprovvisazione Nuova Consonanza is finally reissued for the first time ever." - Superior Viaduct.

Artist: GUSTAFSSON, MATS
Title: Needs!
Format: LP
Label: Dancing Wayang
Country: UK
Price: $28.00
"Needs! is the brand new heavyweight album from heavyweight saxman Mast Gustafsson. The studio album comes housed in the customary Dancing Wayang hand silk screened sleeve, this time featuring artwork by Austrian artist Mathias Poschl and with liner notes by Jim ORourke. On Needs! Gustafsson uses the studio setting to produce unexpected and surprising results, pushing his playing into unchartered territories. The LP features Mats baritone, but also the slide saxophone (a rare antique instrument) as well as a small selection of live power electronics. He combines the acoustic sounds of his saxophones with these amplified sounds, mixing them as overdubs as well as live improvisations. The raw and muscular approach to blowing that has made Gustaffson the unbound force he has become can be experienced in its naked and most vital form on this LP. From gasping to rasping to tongue slapping, nothing smoothes over the up-close physicality of conjuring sounds from his saxophones. The brass resonates as Gustafssons lungs whistle with tension and release. While his acoustic playing is rich in dynamics with a sense of punctuation and spaces, some of his electronic concoctions are thick slices of condensed compressed mass. Sources of Such manufactures a dense, immovable wall of electronic sound broken only by a deep, gutteral warble of the baritones lowest registers. On both the opening and closing tracks, Gustafsson uses the electronic devices to follow and echo his acoustic playing with organically playful results that merge and blur the lines between the acoustic and the electric sound sources. This is a record of substance and space shifting in an array of unexpected layers of noises, which interlock and split apart in equal measures." - Dancing Wayang. Hand-numbered edition of 500 copies.

Artist: GUT UND IRMLER
Title: 500m
Format: LP/CD
Label: Bureau B
Country: Germany
Price: $23.00
180 gram vinyl. Includes full album on CD. "The notion thatJochen Irmler and Gudrun Gut would one day merge the best of their two worlds was never quite to be expected. We hear Irmlers meandering, wistfully psychedelic organ sound, seeming to come from a different era. And we hear Guts reverb-laden, whispering, breathy voice as she sings: Sonnenbrille auf, wir gehen zu den Sternen/Sonnenbrille ab, wir tauchen tief hinein (in the track Auf & Ab). Both approaches to music -- the Krautrock-informed, epic willingness to explore on the part of Irmler; the structured and technoid Berliner discipline (which is practically a contradiction in itself) of Gut -- are conjoined in glistening beauty on this collaborative album 500m, recorded at the Faust studio in Scheer in Autumn of 2013. Analog and digital, town and country, past and present, elliptical melodies and linear beats -- all complementing each other in a most cosmic manner. Gudrun Gut: I had asked Jochen if perhaps we might like to work together. Both with Faust and his solo works, his approach is more improvisational. Improv is not exactly my thing; I dont work that way. I tend to construct something, then refine whats been recorded using the computer, until everything fits. But Jochens organ-playing has always fascinated me. He sits down at the organ and plays and plays, while I tend to dissect everything, then deconstruct and collage things. Jochen Irmler: A few years ago, when she played at our Klangbad Festival, I asked Gudrun if she might like to make an album with me. For more than a decade, I have been following a concept that merges electronics and percussion -- and most collaborations were solely among men. I wanted to break with that and asked Gudrun if she would like to complement my organ improvisations. And in her case, she doesnt play the drums, but programs the drums. In fact, the clash of these two schools is especially constructive. Some pieces consist only of snippets and cut-ups of Irmlers organ, which are held together by Guts programming and her voice. In other tracks, the organ plays through. The division of labor is interesting: During the initial two sessions in Scheer, Jochen Irmler was at the helm, while Gut contributed rudimentary grammar -- simplistic backing beats, rough architectures, moods. Back at her own studio in Berlin, Gut refined and deconstructed the sometimes up to 30-minute long original improvisations. The roles were essentially exchanged, with Irmler listening from a distance via file-sharing. When listening to the album with that in mind, one can guess how much editing is behind these tracks. If two such esteemed musicians as Jochen Irmler and Gudrun Gut not only declare their mutual trust, but also live it out within the framework of a co-production, as described with the example of their working method, the result is per se relevant, because it is a historical document. That it also sounds so incredibly inspired, of course, is a result of these coordinates, but by no means self-evident. Why might it be so? Where does the magic of these recordings come from? Gudrun Gut: I was constantly dizzy during production in Scheer. I asked Jochen why this could be. He replied, We are 500 meters above sea level here. That immediately made sense to me, and at the same time explains the album title." -Max Dax, Warsaw 2014.

Artist: HOFF, JAMES
Title: Blaster
Format: LP
Label: Pan
Country: UK
Price: $27.00
"New York-based conceptual artist James Hoff returns to PAN with Blaster, a document of his explorations of computer viruses as agents within the composition process. Specifically, Hoff used the Blaster virus to infect 808 beats and then utilized the mutated results as building blocks for seven new compositions. Hoffs interest in computer viruses lies in their ability to self-distribute through (and ultimately disrupt) networks of communication and Hoffs agency as an artist centers on placing these parasitic forms into pre-existing genres, such as dance music. Blaster is a timely exploration of the infectious qualities of sound, and how it too, as a carrier, makes its way through social networks, reduced to bits and programmed to infiltrate and replicate. "Viruses, like art, need a host. Preferably a popular one." Interested in ways in which the virus works could mutate and spread socially, the first side of Blaster contains these sonic presentations, and the second houses all of the artists infected samples and serves as a scratch record for DJs, an object of utility, and ultimately a provocation, mobilizing its new hosts as a point of potential transmission. Blaster is a logical progression from Hoffs PAN debut LP How Wheeling Feels When the Ground Walks Away, which dealt with aural documents of riots and disruptions, and the record is part of a larger body of work by the artist that also includes virus paintings." - Pan.

"...much of his material was actually recorded throughout the 80s and 90s, but is only now, in recent years, being released in small quantities by Hoke himself.

"In the age of social networking and digital distribution, where music fans are inundated with an endless barrage of preview tracks, video clips, and promotional blurbs, the story of little known Texas-based songwriter, Russell Hoke, reads almost like something swiped from the pages of The Acid Archives than from someone who has released four albums in 2011 alone.

The songs are better-formed here, but still recorded with a beautifully earthy feel � the kind of vibe that folks pay plenty for on obscure "private" recordings of the 70s � presented by Russell in a very similar format here � especially given that the package for each record is hand-written and handmade!

"...much of his material was actually recorded throughout the 80s and 90s, but is only now, in recent years, being released in small quantities by Hoke himself.

"In the age of social networking and digital distribution, where music fans are inundated with an endless barrage of preview tracks, video clips, and promotional blurbs, the story of little known Texas-based songwriter, Russell Hoke, reads almost like something swiped from the pages of The Acid Archives than from someone who has released four albums in 2011 alone. The truth is that Hoke had recorded a bunch of songs in the Eighties and Nineties, but has only, in the past few years, begun to actively release this material in limited, hand-assembled editions on his private press imprint, Unheard-Of." - Foxy Digitalis.

Price: $25.00
“Jimmy Billingham returns to Opal Tapes with Holo Earth, the firstHOLOVR 12". The two sides are comprised of blended suites covering Billinghams past working with tapes and hardware into a future of more complex composition and convolving sample work. At times the record is sweet, drums bounce and bip with filigrees of synth whirling through like wind in a bottle. At other points the record empties and the lonely pulse ofVenn Rain (Jimmys earlier project) is felt most strongly. Estranged and blue-lipped, the field recordings of alien environments litter the blur emerging. A haunting listen.” - Opal Tapes.

Title: gjerhan
Format: LP
Label: Otoroku
Country: UK
Price: $25.00
"III (pronounced /el/) is Daichi Yoshikawa, Paul Abbott and Seymour Wright. This recording includes two bare 20-minute excerpts from separate performances at Café OTO. Daichi Yoshikawa (feedback); Paul Abbott (drums); Seymour Wright (alto saxophone). gjerhan began from subterranea, sweat, haze and dedication emerging out of intimate and intense weekly meetings begun in 2009 -- their first, 2012 public performance, squeezed into a London basement was a sheer, vexed and exhilarating smack of organic, heterodyning ideas, and taut, low-beating lumps. Reemerge/revanish: With the economy of familiar/traditional raw tools feedback, drum-kit, alto saxophone, time, space and emotion, III move from molten musical pasts to grow future pleasures in sound. The ingredients are familiar, but the listening is not: At its heart is a still, undecorated concentration fuelling an extreme testing of limbs, language and order. This has no concern with collapsing difference into a vogueish, flattened mass-froth, but searches -- forensically, ceaselessly -- for something to chew, in the challenge of discretion and integrity or asylum in the body of its instruments. Akilsakilan learning, Doughnut: Finding, twisting and hammering out an expanding musical universe balanced only by its own logic -- III have few obvious comparisons. Their performances are consistent radical negotiations of the emotional, physical and social energies of the environments they sound out. Perfectly reasonable." - Otoroku.

Title: S/T

Price: $32.00
"Early 70s Scottish underground heavy rock recordings from this group who were stomping around the UK with the likes of Black Sabbath, Hackensack, Pink Fairies, Juicy Lucy and others from the time, but never released a proper album. Their name was taken from the first line in King Crimsons song 21st Century Schizoid Man. In the beginning, Iron Claw probably became the worlds first Black Sabbath tribute band, as they incorporated the entire first Black Sabbath LP and single into their set. As they went on, their live sets included many originals as well as covers such as War Pigs, Fairies Wear Boots, Wicked World, Green Manalishi and Lady Whisky. This collection of sixteen original studio recordings documents their existence from 1970 thru 1974 and was re-mastered for vinyl by Tony Reed and includes lyrics, liner notes and photos. Housed in heavy gatefold cover with a 12" x 12" insert and an 11" x 17" poster inside. Will appeal to those into heavy psych, hard rock, downer rock and proto-metal sounds from bands like Jerusalem, Necromandus, May Blitz, Hard Stuff, Budgie, Hackensack, Ancient Grease, Incredible Hog, and Leaf Hound." -Rockadrome.

Artist: JACK RUBY
Title: Jack Ruby (Volume 2)
Format: LP
Label: Feeding Tube
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"When Don Fleming was doing the initial transfers of the tapes wed gotten retrieved from Randy Cohens barn, every evening seemed to bring a new surprise. But nothing was a bigger jawdropper than the material which makes up the second LP of our Jack Ruby archival series. The central core of the album is the 16 & a 1/2 minute track, "Destroy/Lost," recorded at the bands rehearsal space in January 74. Robin Hall vocalizes and Boris plays electric viola, but the bulk of the piece is screaming analog synth weirdness from Randy Cohens Serge synthesizer. According to Robin, the track was recorded in hopes that it might be pared down to a single. Hard to imagine how the hell it mightve been done (or in what universe), but it is a masterpiece of long-format insanity -- with Boris and Robin providing a context for the massive gallumping of the Serge. Additional players appear on some of the shorter tracks -- new music/free jazz saxophonist, Pete van Riper, on "Lithium Serenade"; Boriss electric viola on "Hydrogen Lullaby"; Chris Grays guitar on "Mandible Mambo"; Rich Golds Serge joins Boris strings on "Ghost Note." The rest is the product of Randys whacked-out compositional notions and his mastery of the Serges patch-cords. Some of the material was recorded pre-Jack Ruby at Cal Arts (where Randy and Boris first met). The rest was from a performance in New York in early 74. Heard as a whole, it is a bizarrely shaped piece of the pre-punk/free-form puzzle that was Jack Ruby. Buckle up. Its going to be a bumpy ride." --Byron Coley; Includes download card. Edition of 600.

Artist: JEFFERIES, PETER
Title: Electricity
Format: Double LP
Label: Superior Viaduct
Country: USA
Price: $29.00
"Peter Jefferies (This Kind of Punishment) released his brilliant sophomore album Electricity in 1994. While his solo debut, 1990s The Last Great Challenge in a Dull World, has drawn comparisons to classic singer-songwriters like Nick Drake and Townes Van Zandt, Electricity is a far more sparse and nocturnal affair. Jefferies earthy baritone weaves between piano, guitar, cello and analog tape machine noise, pulling in listeners to the deep pastoral life of his music. With guest appearances from heavyweights in the New Zealand music scene (Straitjacket Fits Shayne Carter, Plagal Grinds Robbie Muir and the Dead Cs Bruce Russell), Electricity has garnered a cult following among fans, yet the songs possess a singular quality -- every note, utterance and flourish reflect back to Jefferies alone. The simple arrangements, in particular on ballads such as By Small Degrees, convey fiercely intimate moments as well as Jefferies tremendous range and playfulness as a writer. This first-time vinyl reissue includes four bonus tracks from 1992s Swerve EP and is highly recommended for fans of Flying Nun Records, John Cale and Jim Shepard. After 20 years, now is the time to revisit the groundbreaking work of this New Zealand legend." Housed in a gatefold sleeve." - Superior Viaduct.

Country: LP
Price: $22.00
“Electric charges on Hantasive. Kaumwald lights up his dials and twists out five rolling generations to terrify and animate. Plying a line between glitch-like manifestation and cruder analog sewage, these tracks are forged from degrees of digital and analog that gives a contemporary edge to the gritty grey-scale industrial and proto-rhythm you might find while digging through the Vanity Records catalog. Warm kicks and clipping digital synthesis is interlaced with acoustic sourcing and a curious, magnetic primacy -- developing vital color and tactility to these here wares. Think to those contemporary and necessary combinations of computer and combustion engine, but repurposed to a more Jean Tinguely-esque display of machinery for machineries-sake; built to chatter and clunk, to error, and essentially deteriorate. That quest for the perfect minimal weirdo beat re-cut for now.” - Opal Tapes.

Artist: LSD UNDERGROUND 12
Title: LSD Underground 12
Format: LP
Label: Lysergia
Country: Sweden
Price: $45.00
"Before there was psychedelic music, there was LSD Underground 12. Recorded under mysterious circumstances in Los Angeles in the summer of 1966, this mind-blowing musical journey represents the earliest known case of musicians recording while under the effect of LSD. The result is a pioneering aural kaleidoscope of shifting moods and complex atmospheres unlike anything done before and hardly since. Recorded at a time when psychedelic music did not yet exist as a genre, it is not surprising that the music flows freely across genres, from eerie Middle Eastern desert moods and nocturnal West Coast jazz grooves into full-blown acid-rock guitar soloing, while the hallucinogenic tension is sustained and released through outbursts of piercing avant-garde, Fluxic chaos and minimalist stasis. Sold briefly via mail-order, the 1966 record was only rumored to exist until Lysergias recent research verified its existence. In view of its pioneering historical status and outstanding musical quality, LSD Underground 12 should rank as one of the greatest psychedelic music discoveries of the past 20 years. A pioneering acid-head sound unlike anything that came before it and hardly anything since... a musical riddle rising from the psychedelic catacombs. Presented by Patrick Lundborg and Lysergia, LSD Underground 12 is available in an exclusive limited LP edition, 180 gram virgin vinyl, housed in a deluxe case with a wrapped tip-on-sleeve, and including an insert with in-depth liner notes." - Lysergia.

"Heard today, the music will not sound particularly revolutionary to anyone whos spent time with the recordings of ensembles like Red Crayola, Intersystems, The Deep, Cromagnon, Gravity Adjusters Expansion Band, Citizens For Interplanetary Activity, and so on. But it is not exactly like any of them, either, and it sure as hell sounds like it is what it claims to be -- a bunch of musicians on acid." - Byron Coley.

Artist: LUMISOKEA
Title: Apophenia
Format: LP
Label: Opal Tapes
Country: UK
Price: $22.00
“The rich, dark sound of Lumisokea, the Belgian-Italian duo of Andrea Taeggi and Koenraad Ecker, annexes a dark, foreboding aura from an abundance of reference points -- codifying and making concrete the connections that which might otherwise have been elusive or intangible in the worlds of noise, dub, techno and musique concrète. Apophenia follows their Opal Tapes debut Contrapasso, and sees their sound continue to develop; growing in intensity and twisting into more complex, aggressive, and euphorically bent shapes. All seems abstract, not as "whoa, thats weird," but as though every element exists in direct opposition with nature and organic order. Industrial and technoid beats are rolled over sub-sonic, hyper-digital abrasions of noise and synthetic texture to reinforce and fortify the more extreme end of Opals sonic interests. Synthetic stomp and precise, premeditated glissandi form sonic sculptures where the unreal is turned towards something frighteningly palpable.” - Opal Tapes.

Artist: LUSSURIA
Title: Industriale Illuminato
Format: LP
Label: Hospital Productions
Country: USA
Price: $25.00
“One of the most intriguing artists on the Hospital Productions roster, Lussuria came to prominence with the release of three tapes as part of the American Babylon series in 2012 which were eventually compiled into a double vinyl edition in 2013. His opiated atmospheres brought together the ritualistic appeal of late 70s and early 80s Italian industrial music crossed with the claustrophobia of early material from The Cure and the decadent, voyeuristic compulsion of Pasolini flicks so enamoured by Coil. Having been in the works through late 2013 and in post-production for several months since, Industriale Illuminato is in some respects the first release by Lussuria conceived as a standalone album, and is perhaps his most unique, unsettling body of work to date. Inspired by Deconstructionism and an overriding sense of anxiety, the album revolves around the dislocated narrative of album opener "Boneblack," a dense and evocative fade into shadowy realms inspired by composer Giacinto Scelsi and the enigmatic mind-tricks of Alain Resnais Last Year at Marienbad. "Petra Marina" sees Lussuria use real drum sounds alongside electronic ones for the first time, layered through with odd, foreboding drones constructed out of handmade Japanese music boxes, feedback manipulation and mangled tape loops which together sound like an industrial, shadowy counterpart to the hazy nostalgia of Boards Of Canada. "Venus in Retrograde" was inspired by and evokes the paranoid narrative of Francis Ford Coppolas The Conversation, making use of snatches of barely tangible dialogue to form an unnerving backdrop, before "Breath of Cinder" brings the first half of the album to a close with field recordings made in deepest provincial France overlaid with a detached narrative evoking that cold, abandoned landscape. The second half of the album takes us further into this airless environment, the intriguing widescreen ambience of "Eyes of the World" offset by the percussive rattling and decimated 3 pinch harmonics of "Angelshare," while "Wind Carries Soot" recalls the aggression of Mika Vainio sedated and tamed into an altogether more narcotic kind of beast, before "Art of Veins" closes the album with a mangled and inverted message -- like some kind of Satanic directive embedded for posterity.” - Hospital Productions.

Artist: MADRIGAL
Title: Madrigal
Format: LP
Label: Lysergia
Country: Sweden
Price: $45.00
"Finally a reissue of one of the great lost Grails of the NYC freak underground! Trading hands for $3-4000 on the rare occasions it is offered, Madrigal has grown into a legend among fans of psychedelic drone music. Heres what the Acid Archives has to say: "...A rather amazing do-it-yourself descent into the murkiest depths of the early 1970s underground. Its two guys sitting in what sounds like a boiler room, equipped with a drum machine, an electric guitar & bass and some oscillators, hotwiring themselves into the lysergic flow of the Now. The music drones and cavorts while incomprehensible screams and dialogue lurk in the background, as heard through a locked door. The atmosphere is as thick as in a nightmare..." But Madrigals strongest achievement may be the seamless shift from the harrowing visions of machinery and faceless suffering on side 1 into a string of dark, haunting folk-rock numbers on side 2, a transition as natural as if these were simply the two sides of the same unclassifiable coin. Pioneering at the time and still unique today, vague parallels could be made to Suicide, the Patron Saints and Velvet Undergrounds third LP, but first and last Madrigal can only be understood on its own. Re-mastered for superior sound, retaining the original artwork and pressed in a limited edition, 180 gram virgin vinyl, housed in a deluxe case with a wrapped tip-on-sleeve, and including an insert with in-depth liner notes." - Lysergia.

Artist: MAERCKS, OWEN
Title: Teenage Sex Therapist
Format: LP
Label: Feeding Tube
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Owen Maercks Teenage Sex Therapist LP is one of the forgotten twisted pop masterpieces of the 20th century. Owen had been in Monster Island with Henry Kaiser, who proposed he do a solo album of his songs. Henry had moved back west by this time, so Owen went out and recorded this album there. Henry produced, and added amazing horn parts by Jon Oswald, Larry Ochs and John Gruntfest. The album was mixed, pressed and distributed exclusively to radio stations, record labels and the like, in the hopes of getting Owen signed. The music didnt fit any extant pigeonhole, however, so no deal was in the offing. About the only note of its passing was made by an A&R guy at Elektra, who swiped the arrangement (and lyric rearrangement) of "Little Black Egg" (originally by the Nightcrawlers) for use by his protégées, The Cars. Well, fuck them. Teenage Sex Therapist is ripe with jaw-drop moves. Flashes of Eno, Beefheart, Lou Reed, the Bonzos, and various of Owens other obsessions, fight each other for air-time. And everyone goes away a winner. If this one doesnt make your teeth wiggle, you need a new jaw." --Byron Coley; LP comes with a download card.

Title: Valley Girl
Format: LP
Label: New Images
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Valley Girl was inspired by the agriculture and landscapes of Oakland, California and its horizon of rolling hills. The peaks and valleys of the albums landscape are made of fifteen computer generated tones that cycle through melodies driven by ambisonic surround-sound locations to define space.
Computer tones were treated with phase-modulation of triangle waveforms to control the duty cycle of the sine tone. This created a prickly crispness and coiled release that enabled frequency registers to shift back and forth with various levels of control. I used my voice and vocal harmonizer with a midi arpeggiator to make a gated succession of notes in a more controlled frequency range.
The computer material was recorded live with little editing besides the addition of silence to accentuate vocals as a separate entity. The voice was then placed in the silences - or valleys - between melodies. The vocals were recorded live to tape from a parallel practice of recording processed voice improvisations with electronics.
Valley Girl evolves from the synthetic sounds I have been generating on computers for the past several years. When I perform live it typically involves computer synthesis. With the addition of processed voice in the silent spaces of the album five pieces, I have in a way marked the topography of Valley Girl with human traces." - New Images.

Price: $22.00
"As is the case with La Monte Youngs Theater of Eternal Music, David Hykes Harmonic Choir and Pauline Oliveross Deep Listening Band, Roberto Laneri has had a life long penchant for the droning mysteriosa of the Sound Current and with the Prima Materia ensemble he has expressed it in a disciplined, expansive and singular way" - Terry Riley, 2005. "In 1977 an obscure Italian private label issued a record that sounded like it came from outer space. A long and dense trance-inducing drone of sustained notes, rich with overtones and harmonic embellishments, coming from a space so vast and unexplored that seemed almost of non-human, even electronic nature. Paradoxically, each and any molecule of that sound was produced using only the most original and archaic instrument, the human voice. The name of the group was Prima Materia (First Matter), a project that took shape in 1973 in San Diego, and the record The Tail of the Tiger was issued by the Ananda label, owned by Roberto Laneri, Alvin Curran and Giacinto Scelsi. The record soon disappeared and over the became almost a legend among collectors and experimental music lovers. The musicians of the group Prima Materia individually researched and developed unusual vocal techniques (originally used in Tantric rituals in North India, Mongolia and Tibet), based upon the use of overtones coupled with a special state of inner concentration, which was the essential condition for both the emission and control of long-sustained and complex vocal sounds. Their capacity to sustain a note for what seems an eternity, and then continue to provide endless variations generates a continuous and sustained drone of sound, in which the overtones are clearly perceived. This unique compact disk presents the complete Tail of the tiger recordings in a digitally remastered version, including two live concerts held in 1974 in Berlin and in 1976 in Rome. A totally fascinating journey into the realm of pure sound. Deluxe digipak CD, complete with a 8-page informative booklet plus an astounding 16-page exploration of visual overtones printed on transparent paper in full color." - Die Schachtel.

Label: Rune Grammofon
Country: Norway
Price: $50.00
"Over the last 20 or so years we have witnessed an explosion in music-related books, this one being a most welcome addition that fills a hole in that ever-growing library. Born out of necessity and a love of the music and the records, the aim of this book is to offer a guide to a selection of independent labels and their releases of free jazz and improvisation between 1965 and 1985, with 1965 being the year when ESP-Disk started out as the first independent label dedicated to the music covered in this book, and 1985 being the year that the CD slowly started to take over as the main sound carrier. However, Rune Grammofon has stretched the frames a little bit on a few occasions. As explained in the book, they have also chosen to leave out certain labels that have released important records by highly influential musicians within the field of this book, such as Impulse!, Blue Note and Atlantic. This is because they consider them as major labels that have a wide variety of releases in their catalogs and are also well documented in a number of other publications. Its also important for them to underline that this is a personal, subjective take on the subject, rather than an encyclopedic one. Sixty labels are presented, each with an introduction and a discography, either complete or by the authors personal choice. There are also 64 sleeve illustrations, including some extremely rare ones, as well as forewords by Swedish sax player and composer Mats Gustafsson and Rune Grammofons founder Rune Kristoffersen. Finally, there is a conversation between Kristoffersen and music writer Rob Young. Author Johannes Rød is working freelance as an art historian and conservator and has written several books on visual art. He has also been an avid record collector since the late 60s and most of the sleeve illustrations are from his own collection. 128 pages housed in a Geltex cover.

“This album by Shapednoise opens with the violent techno deconstruction of "Witness of a Heart Attack Death," an oddly syncopated gallop through hard layers of analog scree and earth-breaking kicks. A despairing atmosphere dominates the remainder of the side with less percussive yet still deeply rhythmic tracks evocative of the power electronics of Slaughter Productions yet brought to be with the sensibility of a techno producer. Everything is darkened with sonic dirt and dismal vibes but remains nuanced, layered and highly dynamic.” - Opal Tapes.

Title: Powder Horn
Format: Double LP

“The next release on Diagonal is the latest album from Texas-based demolition artist Craig Clouse aka Shit & Shine. TitledPowder Horn, it follows-up Clouses 2013 Diagonal debut 12", which channeled his shape-shifting sound into sharp shocks of mangled club music. On this new album, his first full-length since 2012s Jream Baby Jream, Clouse voyages still deeper down his own sonic wormhole. Its raucous slabs of deviant funk, wiry disco and burnt-out acid are sculpted to soundtrack strung-out dancefloors and their seedy early-hours aftermath, yet they still bear crucial traces of Shit & Shines history in noise rock. Drums bound, crash and detonate to drive the music forward in fits and starts, their sound veering from the chest-busting thud of a techno kick to the hollowed-out clatter of a live punk band. Writhing acid lines do battle with taut, spidery guitar motifs, wrenching the momentum abruptly sideways. "Hiss" is bare-chested post-punk, strutting across the stage, caked with sweat and fizzing with static interference. Deeper into the night, "Acid Minor" wrenches up the gear to explode into full-bore acid techno, with Clouse repeatedly hammering the brakes and triggering space itself to distort around you. This provocative yet playful approach has long been a defining characteristic of Clouses music. Over the past decade hes gained a reputation for Shit & Shines remarkable live shows -- mesmerizing blasts of rhythmic noise featuring multiple drummers -- as well as a string of albums exploring starker noise rock and industrial-infused sounds. His recent shift towards more club-centered music, then, makes sense. Both Powder Horn and his previous Diagonal EP further hone his fascination with the energizing effects of rhythm on the mind and body, while retaining the unpredictable and confrontational nature thats always made Shit & Shine such a wild proposition.” - Diagonal.

The tracks here more or less split themselves into three distinct categories: the first detailing the brilliant swing and shuffle of their reduced UKG mutations, with "22" in particular perfecting the balance between academic reduction and kinetic, feminine motion. The second outlines a more linear approach utilizing reduced house and techno templates, while the last includes more experimental works such as the proper fwwwwd bass-pulse arrangements on the previously unheard B2 and the frequency fxxckery of closing track D3. With the original DAT tapes remastered and cut by Rashad Becker, this series is a real treat to followers of SND and Mark Fell, and an essential eye-opener for anyone unfamiliar with this incredible early material.” - SND.

“A bootleg of this show has been floating around for a while but this is the first time that this particular Spacemen 3 performance has had any kind of official release, albeit in slightly truncated form. Sonic Boom concedes in his sleeve notes that “the set presented here, is as it was…except the show was twice this length. We tuned and smoked for almost as long as we played.” So its pretty much the show minus all the tuning, smoking, and one rendition of Revolution, which the band had taken to playing twice at the time to milk the audience reaction due to its minor hit status.

Theres not much point me describing what Spacemen 3 sounded like because if youre looking at this then Im pretty confident youre already familiar with their hypnotic psych-fuzz drug-pop. Its a strong set, most notable for the half-hour rendition of Suicide that takes up the entirety of side B. Its a seething, pulsating kraut-psych monster. The story on the sleeve says that they “slipped away mid song amongst much fog and dry ice, with taped down keys and feeding back guitars propped against our speaker cabs keeping the song pulsating and screaming”. While I dont doubt that this happened, its hard to tell at which point they left the stage or for how long, as the entire piece is a compelling landscape of shuddering feedback throbs, clanging bass and pounding repeat rhythms.” - Mental Groove.

"Essential Styrenes Volume One is the first release in a four part-series of Double-7" EPs-a "Best Of" collection compiled from 35 years of recordings by a band that Rolling Stone once called "post punk before punk ever happened." PAUL MAROTTA formed THE STYRENES in Cleveland in early 1975 while playing in MIRRORS and ELECTRIC EELS. David Fricke wrote, "The Styrenes proved to be a crucial missing link between Sixties punk grunge and Eighties avant-rock-a rarefied smashup of raggedass psychedelia, proto-No Wave guitar noise, corkscrew jazz & pummeling freak rock." The eleven songs are programmed in chronological order. Disc one opens with the 1975 classic "Drano In Your Veins." Sounds from the garage, a monologue with music (with supplied text), and fast, rocking songs follow, including the often covered "Jaguar Ride." Disc two contains tracks that in 1979 had been scheduled for release as solo singles from Marotta and JAMIE KLIMEK, but did not appear until 1982, after The Styrenes had relocated to NYC.

Strange Strings, standing squarely alongside Sun Ras other epics of the mid-1960s, Atlantis and Magic City, absolutely shines as his most painterly of expositions in its surface richness and play with deep space and coloration. He has offered no world more strange than this in his entire output as a composer and orchestrator. These explorations are only hinted at in scattered moments on other recordings from this period. The full exercise of his very original and very imaginative powers as musical adventurer and visionary bursts forth in the masterful cosmic clattering of Strange Strings." --Hal Rammel, 2006.

In "Lithic Reduction," concrète textures grind like a millstone to release powdery clouds of analog dust, settling only to be dispersed by gusts of blackened distortion, whereas "Red Binary" is distinctly electronic, revolving around muted radar bleeps like the resonance from Selected Ambient Works II soundtracking a speckly pill experience thats starting to go west. The albums centerpiece, the aptly titled "Entropy" nods to the sublimely stoic work of Eleh, radiating microtonal bass shifts while a bitter northerly wind builds in intensity. "Cyclic Redundancy" opens the flipside with a majestically submerged slab of completely obliterated and submerged 4/4, like an unholy collusion between Mika Vainio, Sandwell and Bernard Parmegiani soundtracking a trade union rave in the 1950s, before "Even In Death..." conjures imagery of a eulogy given by a Mongolian throat singer with crows circling overhead.

Walt Andrus Texas Revolution label released the record -- but just barely, selling a few hundred LPs with no promotion to speak of. The copies that made it into shops became the treasured objects of taste-makers around the globe -- which made Corkys Debt To His Father an influential record down the years. As punk rock, new wave, post-punk and all the rest came along, it was inevitable that this lost classic of independent music would be discovered by a wider audience. In 1988, the album was reissued on the UK Glass Records imprint but went out-of-print again in short order. Then in 1994, Drag City brought Corkys Debt To His Father back to the USA, as well as to the CD format for the first time. Additionally, a third pressing of the vinyl was made. The CD has been a perennial favorite ever since -- but after just a few months of robust sales, the LP artwork and jackets were destroyed in a fire, thus putting the end to the life of Corkys Debt To His Father on vinyl once again. A fast fourteen years later, its our pleasure to bring this classic of two-sided entertainment back to the table (the turntable, that is) with a special limited-edition pressing of Corkys Debt To His Father.

Importantly, Rope Commercial Vol. 1 will be outfitted in a picture-disc of a classic Beatty vision. In a creamy neon-green urban landscape, the face of a humanoid figure is merged with a screen of a smartphone, its consciousness fused to the glass. Dangling from the phone is one leg outfitted in a woman’s heel, presumably its sole means of transport. These kind of pathetic cyborg figures in states of physical flux frequently appear in Beatty’s art. They function neatly as windows into Beatty’s music as well, with its electronically marred voices and barren sonic spaces. These figures are Beatty’s torpid avatars, in his music and art both, their humanism is strained by a confounding digital synergy.
Aptly, the picture-disc is a perfect setting for Beatty’s airbrush work, his favored rendering tool, and the general modus operandi of Beatty’s electronic music as Three Legged Race. In all, Beatty renews obsolete materials discarded from a voracious commercial culture, and employs them in strangely poignant contexts." - Underwater Peoples.

Format: LP
Label: Chapter Music
Country: Australia
Price: $18.00
Gatefold LP version with download code. "Chapter Music is thrilled to present the first-ever reissue of the self-titled debut album by Sydneys famed prog-psych giants, Tully. Originally released in June 1970, Tully is the final release in Chapters series of Tully reissues, which takes in surf soundtrack Sea Of Joy (1971), final album Loving Is Hard (1972) and Peter Sculthorpes composed rock opera Love 200 (released on 2010 CD Live at Sydney Town Hall 1969-70). In 1970, Tully had the Australian music world at their fingertips. They formed in late 1968, after a large section of hardworking rnb show band Levi Smiths Clefs broke away to focus on more adventurous material. By early 69 theyd become easily the most-hyped band in the nation, feverishly acclaimed for their towering rock dynamics and extended flights of jazz-inspired improvisation. U.S.-born keyboardist Michael Carlos played a Hammond organ with two huge Lesley speakers, while drummer Robert Taylor used two kick-drums for extra percussive drama. Richard Lockwood experimented restlessly on clarinet, flute and saxophone, eventually developing an amplified clarinet set-up, deepening and distorting his tone through an octave pedal and a massive Lenard amplifer. At first they were a kind of idiosyncratic cover band, playing 25 minute versions of Beatles hits, or their own take on Albert Aylers free jazz classic Bells. But they soon expanded into their own material, and were adopted as the ultimate consciousness-expanding experience in late 60s Australia. Excitable Go-Set journalist Adrian Rawlins called them "the greatest musicians in the western world." The first rock-based band to perform at Sydney Town Hall, Tully sold out repeated concerts there through 1969, became the house band for love-rock musical Hair, and even had their own six-part ABC TV series named Fusions. They headlined Australias first musical festival Pilgrimage For Pop, and outraged the classical establishment with their Love 200 performances. By mid-1970 an album was eagerly-awaited, and the resulting debut is one of Australias most forward-thinking and ambitious of the era. Opening track "You Realise, You Realise" bursts through the speakers with all the fabled power and exuberance of the bands live shows, while "La Nave Bleu" follows with delicacy and restraint. A full church choir uplifts "Loves White Dove," while "Phsssst" is five minutes of submerged organ drones, chanting and studio games. "Lace Space" must be one of the few drum solo tracks on a 60s/70s psych album capable of holding a modern listeners interest, and the album finishes with thunderous concert favorite "Waltz to Understanding." The album made it to number 6 in the charts, but within months of its release, Tully had changed into something almost unrecognizable from their original form. They merged with folk-psych sirens Extradition, lost singer Terry Wilson and drummer Taylor, and decided to continue on drummer-less. Their subsequent records were serene, solemn and impossibly beautiful, but without the incendiary power of their first incarnation, audiences deserted them in droves. By the end of 1971, Tully were no more. Reissued for the first time in 44 years, Tully documents a moment when anything seemed possible, and the band made music that perfectly summed up this sense of wonder and infinite potential. Includes a bonus track." - Chapter Music.

Recorded in masterful fidelity by Burmese ethnomusicologist Rick Heizman (White Elephants and Golden Ducks, Green Tea Leaf Salad) and presented here for the first time on vinyl, Gita Pon Yeik offers a small window into a tragically under-documented royal tradition that sits comfortably next to both ethnomusicological documents and abstract avant-garde folk forms." - Little Axe.

Title: Oooh-Ahhh
Format: LP
Label: Nowhere
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
Awesome 1982-86 recordings from Russell Hoke, Mark Semmes (of the Rejects (!) and Lung Overcoat), and an anonymous friend. Several tracks were recorded in the electronic music lab of a Catholic university in south-central Texas.

"Recently released on glorious CLEAR VINYL!!!: an LP collecting truly bizarre 1982-1993 recordings by Texans Mark Semmes (of San Antonio punk group The Rejects and of alternative group Lung Overcoat fame), Russell Hoke (a San Antonio outsider folkie), and Anonymous. The music is a blend of hillbilly, industrial, eerie folk-rock and just plain WEIRD. Trace-sounds of the Residents and similar groups from the late seventies and early-to-mid-eighties can be detected, but for the most part these tracks have carved a groovy category all their own! The recordings include vocals, banjo, acoustic guitar, electric guitars, piano, and keyboards/synthesizers. A must-have album for collectors of the very strange!" - Norman.

"In the age of social networking and digital distribution, where music fans are inundated with an endless barrage of preview tracks, video clips, and promotional blurbs, the story of little known Texas-based songwriter, Russell Hoke, reads almost like something swiped from the pages of The Acid Archives than from someone who has released four albums in 2011 alone. The truth is that Hoke had recorded a bunch of songs in the Eighties and Nineties, but has only, in the past few years, begun to actively release this material in limited, hand-assembled editions on his private press imprint, Unheard-Of." - Foxy Digitalis.

Title: III: Symbol of Infinity
Format: LP
Label: Grand Imperial Record Co.
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Expertly mastered and released in a limited edition of 300 copies on ultra clear vinyl + download coupon. Straight out of the Outer Limits Recordings archive comes the final installment in the Wingdings trilogy: III: Symbol of Infinity. The origin of these recordings have never been entirely clear, with a popular theory being that these are a collection of recordings picked up via satellite of broadcasts by a far-away alien race - of whom were attempting to emulate radio broadcasts that they had received from Earth - known as Earthling music - as a form of communication. The other theory is that these are a series of jams completed in the dead-heat of summer in a flea-infested apartment in Echo Park. The former sounds the more likely." - Grand Imperial Record Co.
