Artist: ALBERICH
Title: NATO-Uniformen
Format: Double LP
Label: Hospital Productions
Country: USA
Price: $29.00
"This gatefold double LP set is a redacted version of Alberichs indomitable, spirit-crushing opus, NATO-Uniformen, cut from 30 tracks in the original eight-cassette box (limited to 50 copies) to 19 tracks on this version, edited in 2014 for the Trans Industrial Assembly in NYC. Originally deployed in 2010, its bombed-out luster has become a firm favorite of everyone from Blackest Ever Blacks Kiran Sande to Endangered Species Vereker. Between the bludgeoned doom techno of "Skysweeper," the shell-strewn darkwave scenes of "Man Is Ready" and the Carpenter-esque adrenalizer, "Immortality Is No Consolation for Death," Alberich finds a very specific line through heavy electronics, synth zones, and dread techno, and holds it to the last with a shell-shocked, eviscerated aesthetic most unlike any other. Fully remastered and cut at Alchemy." - Hospital Productions.

Artist: AMBARCHI & ELI KESZLER, OREN
Title: Alps
Format: LP
Label: Dancing Wayang
Country: UK
Price: $24.00
"Dancing Wayang Records is thrilled to announce the imminent release of the labels ninth album -- Alps by Oren Ambarchi & Eli Keszler; a fresh yet seemingly inevitable collaboration of two musicians kicking against limits and genre definitions, recorded and presented with a similar disregard for anything but quality. Alps was recorded in June 2013 at Eastcote Studios in London. Thereafter mixed by frequent Ambarchi associate Joe Talia in Melbourne and mastered by Rashad Becker in Berlin, it comes pressed on 180 gram black virgin vinyl housed in the labels traditional hand-screenprinted wrap-around sleeves featuring cover art by Eli Keszler. Liner notes come courtesy of U.S. musician C. Spencer Yeh (Burning Star Core). Two vinyl-side-long pieces that mix improv, noise, rock, and drone, this is never an easy listen but always a compelling one. Both musicians are compulsive collaborators, with individual oeuvres that span all those genres and others yet to be labeled, and this album reflects and distills their hard-working heritage. They have a similar approach to questioning the fundamentals and exploring the sonic properties of their chosen instruments in a way that is informed by musical theory and learning but manifests itself in a defiantly non-academic, visceral and physical sound, both in intent and experience. Listening to Alps is a discomforting, uneasy and massively rewarding exercise, which denies the listener any steady ground on which to stand. This is evident from the moment that "Alps I" kicks off with piercing bowed cymbals. Percussive elements emerge from deep in the mix, drums without rhythm nor meter. Background and foreground shift tectonically and queasily. A chopping helicopter pulse hovers omnipresently over the battlefield of attacking drums and splintery bass beneath. It is a liquescent, rolling, never-still 20 minutes of multiple musical narratives. From the outset side B upholds the intensity. The conflagration of "Alps II" comes off like a tribute to classic Japanese psych; guitar proudly and consistently in the red, tsunamis of drum rolls. It has a defiant crudeness and rawness to its attack, which belies the intelligence needed to create such a rough-edged sound, the deftness needed to keep the truck-driving momentum on the road. 500 copies worldwide limited edition, pressed on 180 gram vinyl." - Dancing Wayang.

Artist: ASTOR
Title: Alcor
Format: LP
Label: Kye
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"Alcor is the debut LP by a new voice from the Australian wilderness. Hailing from Ferntree Gully, Victoria, the music of Astor has thus far been appreciated only via a string of barely-distributed CDRs. Alcor gathers together the prime of these micro-editions and presents the material as a seductive and puzzling new whole. Field recordings of humble organic activity bend against a foundation of discreetly processed electronics/piano, creating sonorities that are as undefinable as they are unforgettable. Alcor is the ideal LP for fans of fringe position electro-acoustic study, Delphic audio confusion, or anyone who pines for the days when Small Cruel Party still roamed the earth. Mastered by Graham Lambkin, Alcor arrives in a full color high gloss sleeve, in an edition of 350 copies." - Kye.

Title: Gongs & Bells
Format: CD
Label: SWP
Country: Netherlands
Price: $16.00
"A solo project by drummer/composer Michael Baird. Gongs and bells vibrate, tremble, quake, quiver, flutter, flicker, murmur, hum, throb, ding, dong, peal, ping, trill, tinkle, oscillate, ring and shake. Each one a microcosm, wonderfully recorded, capturing every overtone. The album enters the borderland between ethnic music, improvisation and soundscape without the pretension of being experimental, and where you seem to get liberated from all kinds of musical conventions. Includes an 8-page booklet." - SWP.

Artist: BANDON, DAO
Title: Kon Kee Lang Kwai (Man on a Water Buffalo): Essential Dao Bandon
Format: LP
Label: EM
Country: Japan
Price: $25.00
"This is the second release in the re-launch of EM Records Thai music series. Paradise Bangkok, Soi 48 and EM have teamed up to deliver a series showcasing the extraordinary performances of some of Thailands greatest musical legends. For reasons unknowable, certain places in certain eras become hotbeds of music, fertile in their growth and flowering of musical talent. Thailand in the 1970s was such a place, and Dao Bandon is one of the enduring greats of that era. Born in the farm country of the Isan region, Bandon came from a poor family and was a monk during his teens, two great influences which shaped him, with his farm roots grounding the earthy heart of his lyrics, and his years of monastic chanting lending a unique resonance to his singing. After an apprenticeship with some of the greats of Thai music, Dao Bandon began to enjoy success leading his own band. The songs here, released in the 1970s, showcase the infectiously joyful Bandon groove, his mellifluous voice, and his captivating melodic sense. His lyrics deal with sex, love, marijuana, and the struggles of the poor, but no matter what he sings about, a sense of good cheer is always evident. Featuring parallel translations of the lyrics, in-depth liner notes, rare photos, and of course, great music, Man on a Water Buffalo is yet another example of Thai excellence from EM Records. English & Japanese text with Thai, English, and Japanese lyrics." - EM.

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.

Title: Snuff Jazz
Format: CD
Label: Agaric
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Reissue of Snuff Jazz, a vicious installment originally released on LP in 1990, with one previously unreleased track and an untitled track previously released on COS tapes in 1990. Jim Sauter and Don Dietrich on saxophones, Donald Miller on guitar. The first three selections were recorded at the art gallery and performance space ABC No Rio in New Yorks lower Lower East Side on November 24, 1988. The occasion for the concert was the opening night of an exhibition of paintings by Carl George andValerie Caris. The fourth selection was recorded at DC Space, in Washington, DC on August 25,1989. "It is hard to believe that it has been twenty years since my ass warmed a bench in the dungeon at ABC No Rio. Back in the day, it was dicey on the streets of the dank and decaying Lower East Side, streets riddled with drug dealers and abandoned buildings. A couple of drinks at the opening, and it was high time for a good aural irrigation. The boys gently ascended to their cruising altitude, and the sonic bursts pierced the damp masonry walls and every human eardrum in reach. The fans drooled, and the uninitiated, like the soccer players of Chernobyl, stared in awe of this enfolding, life-threatening disaster and grit-crunching ass-kick machine. The dogs were howling this night! Remove all other living critters from the house, pour yourself a double single-malt scotch, turn the volume of your stereo to twelve, and enjoy as your ears are acid-etched." - Michael Hanke.

Artist: BRUHIN, ANTON
Title: Vom Goldabfischer
Format: CD
Label: Alga Marghen
Country: Italy
Price: $20.00
"The new compact disc by Anton Bruhin issued by Alga Marghen is titled Vom Goldabfisher and presents for the first time on CD the classic experimental folk recordings with the same title first issued on LP in 1969. Anton Bruhin conceived some of the most original sonic art musiks, a double of his artistic work as an outsider painter and with the help of Stefan Wittwer on electric guitar and Cristian Koradi on bass and cello, recorded this masterpiece of far out sonorities well hidden in the Swiss mountains. Anton Bruhin sings and plays jews harp (his favorite instrument), ch-phon (an instrument he invented constructed with a PVC tube with saxophone reed), harmonica, flute, fiddle, percussion, water. This record, surely one of the most psychedelic, experimental and private to be issued in Europe in the 1960s, should be of great influence for the actual renaissance of experimental folk music. Surely it was an important source of magick for Steven Stapleton, so no surprise to see it mentioned in the mythical list of references that Nurse With Wound included in their first LP. This CD edition also includes 5 jews harp instrumental tracks. In the late 1970s, Anton Bruhin was asked to edit a record of folk and ethnic music, documenting the use of jews harp in Switzerland. Bruhin climbed up the mountains in order to record some of the most obscure, old jews harp players. Those mysterious sounds were issued in 1979 on a record titled Maultrommel, Mundhermonika, Kamm. This CD includes 3 solo jews harp tracks where Anton Bruhin plays themes from the Vom Goldabfischer LP, plus 2 massive, maximal and resonating duos with W. Gwerder, recorded in 1979 at Radio Schweiz International. Beautiful digipack sleeve with photos and liner notes, also including a folded insert reproducing lyrics, technical notes and a group of ink drawings originally created for the Vom Goldabfischer LP sleeve." -Alga Marghen

Artist: CHANCE, BOB
Title: Its Broken
Format: LP
Label: Trunk
Country: UK
Price: $18.00
"Theres no one quite like Bob Chance. Hes a California man who makes his own music. And here he is, on fire. Its a privately-pressed album that has become a cult item in recent years. DJ Shadow calls it hairy forearm disco, I think it walks a fine line between the dancefloor and the asylum. Originally recorded and issued by himself in 1980, Its Broken represents Bob Chances creative juices flowing and then possibly overflowing all over the place. Hes a multi-talented multi-instrumentalist who writes his own songs. Trunk first came across the album in the USA, and decided to feature it as one of the strange slabs of vinyl I write about for my weird record column in Mojo. I described it as the musical equivalent of Curry House DIY, an unusual and unexpected flow of ideas that maybe shouldnt work together but actually do in a most unorthodox and functional way. And if I have to describe the album musically to people I explain it has a touch of Giorgio Moroder, a bit of the Beach Boys and a sprinkle of Glen Campbell as a serial killer. How can you not love a nine-minute post-disco oddity called Its Broken? Why would you not want to thrill at a five minute instrumental journey into Bobs jungle? And how about a short trip inside a stalkers van? Exactly, its all irresistible. And now, thanks to this reissue, more of us can enjoy the genius that is Bob Chance and his very unique music." -Jonny Trunk.

Title: A Monastic Trio
Format: LP
Label: Superior Viaduct
Country: USA
Price: $26.00
"Born Alice McLeod into a musical Detroit family, Alice Coltrane began playing piano at age seven and later studied with Bud Powell in Paris. Upon returning to the States, she joined vibraphonist Terry Gibbs group and eventually shared a bill with the John Coltrane Quartet. In 1965 the two wed in Juárez, Mexico, and played alongside one another until her husbands last performance in May, 1967. A Monastic Trio, created in the year following her husbands passing, is Coltranes first recording as a band leader and features six original compositions. While Johns spirit can be felt throughout -- from the song titles (Ohnedaruth was his adopted Hindu name) to the personnel (Jimmy Garrison, Rashied Ali, and Pharaoh Sanders were frequent collaborators) -- the album showcases Alices immense talent for fusing spiritual free-jazz and new-age with classical, Eastern, post-bop and gospel. As the late Amiri Baraka writes, "I Want to See You" is a monastic piano concerto. With echoes of Europe... it has a solemnity and majesty to it.... Yes, monastic is the word. The piano broods in its earth imagination." - Superior Viaduct.

Title: Dark Rooms Delight
Format: LP

Country: France
Price: $25.00
"After their critically-acclaimed debut album, Complot Bronswick released their second opus in 1985. Dark Rooms Delight is now reissued for the first time on vinyl. With a more polished but still powerful sound, Dark Rooms Delight is definitively the bands best album and could be seen as the French answer to the records of X-Mal Deutschland, The Danse Society, and And Also The Trees. This reissue is housed in a brand-new sleeve designed by the bands own personal long-time designer, Maurice Chesneau. Arriving in 1981 on the Rennes scene, Complot Bronswick have never been short of good ideas: alternating music, video and performance, haunted by the shores of dreams and Russian imagery from the 20s, the group created captivating atmospheres. Complot Bronswick changed with a deliberate desire to shatter an image. Even the notion of them being an elitist band is a misinterpretation for such an open group. In fact the role of Complot Bronswick was not to create a rigid world but to open up and accept the confrontation of different worlds, generating new emotions. The human structure of the group fluctuated and there could be anything from two to ten people onstage at any one time. The only real constant was the poetry and the emotion which was given out at each concert, a certain idea of freedom. Limited edition of 300 copies. Pressed on black vinyl. 350g sleeve printed on reversed cardboard. Includes a download card." - Desire.

Price: $18.00
"There are times when the name of a musical project is in perfect harmony with the sounds emanating from it. And there are times when it is not. Take the 1981 album Deutsche Wertarbeit by keyboarder and composer Dorothea Raukes, which is rather an example of the latter. No stomping of military marches, as the title may imply, but six beautiful synthesizer treasures gathered together on the only solo album she would release, artfully unifying the so-called Düsseldorf School (Kraftwerk, etc.), the Berliner School (Tangerine Dream, etc.) and elements of Jean Michel Jarres music with the sounds of the inceptive 1980s. From the hypnotic to the cosmic, sometimes pulsating, sometimes evincing saccharine melancholy. The cool, almost technical artwork does not really fit the warm, sensitive music, either. Dorothea Raukes was not exactly an unknown quantity when the album appeared. She had been playing keyboards and writing for the Düsseldorf rock band Streetmark for years. The group -- as was typical of the period -- operated on democratic principles, which meant that she was never quite able to follow through on her own musical ideas one hundred percent. A solo album, however, would allow her to do just that. One of the reasons why it turned out to be a purely electronic album was Raukes sponsorship deal with Korg, giving her access to the full range of the companys gear. Listening to Deutsche Wertarbeit, those familiar with the history of Streetmark will find themselves reminded of Wolfgang Riechmanns solo LP Wunderbar (BB 027CD/LP), which appeared three years earlier and traced a similar musical pattern. Wolfgang Riechmann himself had been a member of Streetmark not all that long ago. Nonetheless, the two projects were entirely separate and had no immediate influence on each other." - Bureau B.

Wolfgang Riechmann himself had been a member of Streetmark not all that long ago. Nonetheless, the two projects were entirely separate and had no immediate influence on each other." - Bureau B.

"The Dreebs are a trio from Brooklyn of prepared guitar, violin, drums, and vocals. This is an experimental rock record, but it is in no way a “free rock” record. This band is incredibly tight and its compositions are very precise. The Dreebs songs seem to work by the prepared guitar setting up a metallic drone in front which the drums and violin lock in to patterns that gradually build into climaxes, but this band doesnt fall into the trap of only playing crescendos that a lot of improvised rock and post rock bands do. The dynamics are very important in this band and are used in a very refreshing ways. The vocals range from whispers and shrieks and come in at just the right times to heighten the tension. The prepared guitar sounds particularly great and adds a tangible, alien quality to the band. I’ve really never heard anything like it. An excellent record." - Chris Strunk.

“Doc Dunn flings open the shutters of perception on this vinyl-only expedition into the inner cosmos. Switched on to heliocentric frequencies, these home-recorded heatwaves were laid down Portastudio style as the blueprint for future flights in a group incarnation, yet stand alone as a soothing and spellbinding trip. Side A starts off with a series of soft-focus sketches varying in degrees of abstraction, but the pair of longer pieces on the flip is where it really lifts off. The 11-minute “All Is And Ever Will Be” hovers on a hazy organ drone with muted splatter-clatter skimming below the surface like a one-man Flower-Corsano Duo. Closer “Earth House” is the coolest pool of equanimity, layering echoed keys with electronic squelch and a headbobbing rhythm to bring the journey back to Satchidananda.” - Jesse Locke.

Title: Message from Era Ora
Format: LP
Label: Black Sweat
Country: Italy
Price: $23.00
“One of the most original and innovative Krautrock bands, Embryo fused traditional ethnic music with their own jazzy space-rock style. Over their 40 year existence, during which Christian Burchard has been the only consistent member, the group has traveled the world, playing with hundreds of different musicians and releasing over 20 records. This is a never-before-released jams recorded live in 1976 in various locations. This is the only recording of their collaboration with the Italian jazz legend Massimo Urbani during a wild live performance in a church in Udine, Italy. If you freaked out on Jimmy Jacksons organ-playing on Steig aus, then Message from Era Ora is right up your alley. Dieter Miekautsch is heavy on his Fender Rhodes and Urbanis alto sax fits like a glove on this exuberant but relaxed fusion Kraut session. Christian Burchards drumming is as agile as ever, while Uve Muellrichs bass gallops alongside Roman Bunkas funky, psychedelic guitar. Message from Era Ora is much more than just another unearthed archival recording, its a rare occasion to actually feel the enthusiasm and joy that fuelled their jams back in 1976.” - Black Sweat.

"Its amazing to me that a recording from 1976 can sound so pummeling during a tom-tom rape while a lot of the records I spin from NOW dont carry the same gut-sucking punch. Beyond that, if you get inside these compositions and stay with them from top to bottom it becomes apparent there are wicked forces at work here, and nothing short of a tractor-beam pull is required to put jammy jazz-prog, drenched in Fender Rhodes, like this across. They nail it, and have fun doing it." - Tiny Mix Tapes.

Title: Fiesta, Que Viva La
Format: CD
Label: Staubgold
Country: Germany
Price: $18.00
"The first-ever release of mythic Colombian groups Ensamble Polifonico Vallenato and Sexteto La Constelacion De Colombia. A full-length album of exclusive archive recordings featuring members of the Meridian Brothers, Frente Cumbiero, Ondatropica, Romperayo and Los Piranas. Bland rock and pop music took over Colombia in the 1980s. For a country with so much musical heritage, this was blasphemy. Ensamble Polifonico Vallenato and Sexteto La Constelacion de Colombia were two groups who, in the late 90s, fought to redress the balance. Ensamble Polifonico Vallenato started as a joke, a parody of the bad vallenato music a bunch of university students would hear on the bus into campus. Their idea was simple: "to play whatever and see what happens." The resultant music was as heavy as rock, as acidic as punk and as far-out as the most left-field free-jazz. At the heart of it all was fiery accordion and acerbic vocals, often playing in call-and-response, just like the classic vallenatos of yore. The lyrics formed a big part of the groups identity; they were deep, sarcastic and surrealistic, and revelled in toying with Colombian clichés. The music soon stopped being a parody. The students began to learn more and more about Colombian folklore and their sound evolved. Soon, they ditched the accordion, replacing it with flutes from Colombias Caribbean coast, and renamed the group Sexteto La Constelacion de Colombia. The musicians were now more mature, though no less experimental. Both groups were rebellious, counter-cultural and added to their reputations with anarchic live shows. At the time, the reaction was mixed. To quote the group, they were "approved by a few but disapproved by a lot." For many musicians who saw them play during their short lifespans, they offered an alternative, a new form of Colombian music that was rooted in their countrys heritage but could be as innovative and experimental as any jazz or rock. A seed was sown that started a new branch of Colombian tropical music. The band members now play in groups like Meridian Brothers, Frente Cumbiero, Ondatropica, Romperayo and Los Piranas -- bands that have released albums and toured internationally, as well as won critical and public approval while maintaining the revolutionary spirit that will ensure that the evolution of Colombian music is not ready to stop yet." - Staubgold.

It contains the first material recorded by Spanish cult legends Esplendor Geométrico between 1980 and 1981. One of the singles includes their first demo, recorded after their formation, with three tracks of industrial-minimal-techno-pop, among which is the well-known "Moscú Está Helado." This demo was sent in 1980 to the German label Ata Tak, run by Der Plan, who chose "Moscú..." for their legendary compilation Fix Planet!. The second single is a facsimile reissue of Necrosis en la Poya, originally released in 1981 and which already shows EGs shift towards harsher industrial rhythms. Finally, the third single includes four tracks recorded in 1981 soon after Necrosis... Three of them are previously-unreleased and were found recently on an old, lost reel tape. The CD includes the 10 tracks from the singles plus another five extra tracks from the same period, originally released on the cassette Esplendor Geométrico 1980-1981.

Price: $12.00
"Flaming Dragons of Middle Earth (FDOME) is a band of misfit children and adults who have been holding weekly “practices” for the last eight years at a teen center in the mildly dilapidated town of Turners Falls, Massachusetts. I feel like Volcanic Tongues David Keenan has described the band better than I could so Im going to let him talk for a minute. This is from the Tip of the Tongue write-up for FDOMEs debut LP:
Led by wheelchair-bound ‘band shaman Danny Cruz and consisting of a rotating group of non-musicians, psychedelic drop-outs, teenage metalheads, kids with Down Syndrome etc, Flaming Dragons play a form of super crude/sophisticated free rock ala The Godz or even a punk-primitive Arkestra but with Cruzs stunning, oracular vocals giving them a mainline to the freak flag style of prime Captain Beefheart, Roky Erickson and Wasa Wasa-era Broughton. Cruzs instant lyric inventions are as mind-boggling as your favourite medium while the group lurch around on staggering brokedown rhythms somewhere between early-Sabbath, Robbie Yeats of The Dead C and The Shaggs. Their material ranges from stripped-down raps to lumbering psychedelic rock, as well as free-form freakouts w/lyrics that obsess over murder, bloodshed, astral creeps and, uh, Joni Mitchell... indeed Cruz makes most ‘sound poets sound like childrens entertainers.

Ive worked closely with Danny and his crew for the last six years, so you can trust me when I say that this new FDOME disc is hands down the best thing the group has recorded and one of the most unusual, yet enjoyable, records Ive had the pleasure of holding in my hands. You can listen to a few songs from the album here.

Some of the bands previous releases have been on Feeding Tube Records, but now Danny is in complete control of his music with the aide of his personal care assistants/bandmates. Take a walk on the wild side, youll be glad you did.” - One Kind Favor.

Instead of his signature sample heavy, tape loop collage psychedelia, Soliloquy For Lieven finds him swimming in an ambient ocean of minimalist synth and field recordings. These sounds, often associated with New Age music, are, when realized by Mr. Zukerman, altogether more ominous in tone; exploring a darker side of personal spirituality.

"Never one to settle on a single musical style, Brigitte Fontaine followed up her debut, Est?Folle, and her astonishing collaboration with The Art Ensemble of Chicago, Comme à la Radio, with the most eclectic release of her lengthy career, 1972s Brigitte Fontaine. It is telling that Fontaine chose an eponymous title for her third album, the sole release from her venerable 70s catalogue attributed to her alone. Here the actress-cum-singer has finally arrived. From the introspective opening track, simply named Brigitte, seductive melodies perfectly hang above slithery bass lines and acoustic strumming. On Moi Aussi, a sparse and trance-like duet with long-time collaborator Areski, Fontaine muses, They put me in a cage and after they told me You fly down. Brigitte Fontaine is an unmatched European art-pop masterpiece anchored by both vocal and lyrical dexterity?in many ways, Fontaines most compelling work and an excellent entry point for those unfamiliar with this unique French icon." - Superior Viaduct.

"Since forming in 2008, The Gate, the trio made up of Dan Peck on tuba and amplifier, Tom Blancarte on electric upright bass, and Brian Osborne on percussion, have forged a unique and uncompromising aesthetic. The Gate seek to break down and confuse the conventional roles of a horn-bass-drums ensemble, revealing the most raw and elemental aspects of organized sound. Their music, dividing time between improvisation and Pecks compositions, ranges from bleak landscapes of near-silence to massive, horrifying sound sculptures. With three international tours and three albums under their belt, The Gate now present Stench, their fourth studio album. Recorded by engineering wizard Colin Marston at his Thousand Caves Studio in Queens, New York, it features new friends Nate Wooley on trumpet and amplifier and Tim Dahl on electric bass. The album is in many ways a continuation of the bands gloom-jazz stylings, but Wooleys impeccable sense of extemporaneous composition and Dahls psychedelic brand of bizarro-funk provide incomparable additions to the brooding nature of the music, making Stench the gnarliest and blackest experience yet from The Gate.

Format: LP

Country: Belgium
Price: $16.00
"350 gram sleeve. Part of Sub Rosas Early Electronics series. During the 1950s and 1960s, Roberto Gerhard gathered a significant magnetic tape collection in his home studio, creating a major repository of early electronic sound recordings of his own works. The pieces on this record present a complex set of challenges for audio restoration, requiring a complete understanding of his compositional process and allowing the spirit and vitality of his electronic work to speak clearly to the listener. The versions of the pieces you will hear on this record represent an attempt to present Gerhards musical thoughts as free as possible from distracting technical deficiencies that obscure the musical content of the tapes. To this end a number of processes have been employed to reduce tape hiss and broadband noise, clicks, crackle, mains hum, tape splices and low frequency thuds, ranging from automated algorithms to a more painstaking manual clean-up of the audio spectrum. Every process of musical audio restoration must seek a compromise between the removal of elements that are problematic to the modern listener, and the preservation of the vital sonic and musical characteristics of the recordings. Roberto Gerhard (b. 1896; d. 1970) was born in Valls, Spain. Initially he studied piano with Granados and composition with Felipe Pedrell. When Pedrell died in 1922, Gerhard moved to Vienna as a pupil of Arnold Schoenberg. Returning to Barcelona in 1928, he became a central figure in the Catalonian avant-garde, befriending such figures as Pablo Casals and Joan Miró. Identified with the Republican cause throughout the Spanish Civil War, Gerhard was forced to flee to France in 1939 and later that year settled in Cambridge, England. Once in England, Gerhard produced a series of orchestra and stage works that would establish his international reputation. The Symphony (in memory of Pedrell), the ballet Don Quixote, First String Quartet, and the opera The Duenna followed in quick succession. In the 1950s Gerhard developed his musical style, synthesizing Schoenbergian serialism with Catalan folksong. These years also marked him out as the first composer in England to engage seriously with electronic music. Gerhard worked extensively at the newly-formed BBC Radiophonic Workshop producing a series of abstract electronic works as well as electronic music for stage -- most notably his score for the 1955 Royal Shakespeare Production of King Lear. The last decade of his life saw Gerhards musical language evolve still further and the composition of late masterpieces such as the Symphony No. 3 "Collages" which includes a significant tape part, Symphony No. 4 "New York," the chamber symphony Leo, and the masterly Concerto for Orchestra." - Sub Rosa.

Title: s/t

Price: $22.00
"Penultimate Press is proud to release a unique vinyl of the only known recordings by Danish artist Poul Gernes.

Poul Gernes only ever recorded just under 20 minutes of music. His entire musical production is therefore on this LP. The recording was done on a Tandberg Recorder at Poul Gernes house in the south of Sweden in 1969. He is playing an old harmonium salvaged from a local primary school. The result is an informal quasi­-drone work, which, along with the ambient sounds and domestic interference, comes across as a snapshot of the recording itself, a sonic Polaroid. Poul Gernes (1925­-1996) was one of the central figures in Danish art life during the latter half of the twentieth century. His experimental art holds a firm place on an international level and as one of the founders of the legendary Den Eksperimenterende Kunstskole (The Experimenting Art School) he has exerted considerable influence on a whole generation of artists who make up the Danish post war avant­ garde. His wide-ranging body of work is still a source of inspiration for younger generations of artists in Denmark and abroad. This recording was initiated by John Hunov who was the chairman of Ung Dansk Kunst (Young Danish Art) an association for the presentation and publication of many Danish artists of the period. A series of cassettes were commissioned as a supply on demand service prompting Poul Gernes to instigate a musical work. The recording was done during a prolific period of creativity and lingers in the current spirit of endless possibilities. The combination of an old harmonium and a tape recorder manifests a yet untried option: why not compose music as well? A childs voice, his daughter Ulrikka, is heard making small remarks and pointing out when the needle enters the red. This audial domestic background is too included as an incidental yet natural part of the work as Poul Gernes saw no limit between art and life. Poul Gernes major musical inspirations at the time were J.S. Bach, Terry Riley and Gregorian chant. An alleged encounter with John Cage and close collaborations with, for instance, composer and Fluxus artist Henning Christiansen are likely to have encouraged the musical endeavour. During the 1960s Poul Gernes also made a large number of happenings and performances, together with amongst others Per Kirkeby and Joseph Beuys. Originally issued in a miniscule edition on cassette in 1969 this was re-issued in 1998 as a very limited edition CDR via John Nixons Document Records, Australia. This is the first vinyl issue of these recordings.

Poul Gernes comes as limited edition one sided lp of 400 copies. A beautiful etching of a Gernes painting appears on the b-side and all is packaged in a full colour sleeve retaining the nature of the recording itself. Also includes an insert with a list of Pouls hypothetical track titles." - Penultimate Press. For more information on Poul Gernes: http://www.gernes.dk

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.

""With an Aching Heart" is mostly a record of favorite cover songs.  Only one song, "Scorpio Madi," is an original.  I recorded all but one song on a Califone tape recorder with a condenser mic.  My studios were my garage and bedroom.  Featuring eleven tracks, including classics such as:  "You Are My Sunshine," Im So Lonesome I Could Cry," "Hellhound on My Trail" (with banjo!), "House of the Rising Sun," "Girl of My Dreams," and "We Three" (once made popular by the Ink Spots. The album is raw and spare, with an aim toward sublime sorrow.  This will be my last record." - Russell Hoke. Limited to 100 copies.

"...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. His work brings to mind various left-of-center songsmiths such as Michael Hurley, Holy Modal Rounders, Lee Hazlewood, Syd Barrett, Daniel Johnston..." - Free Form Freakout.

Artist: INVISIBLE HANDS, THE
Title: Teslam
Format: CD
Label: Abduction
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"The Invisible Hands is a transcontinental collaboration between Alvarius B. (Alan Bishop of Sun City Girls) and four stellar young musicians from Cairo, Egypt: Cherif El Masri, Aya Hemeda (both formerly of the popular Egyptian group Eskenderella), Adham Zidanand Magued Nagati. On Teslam, The Invisible Hands expand the already panoramic range of their eponymous debut LP with a haunting set of melodic, impeccably crafted songs whose vintage psych/hard-rock edge conjures up early Alice Cooper almost as often as it recalls Sun City Girls and 20th-century icons like Ennio Morricone and Serge Gainsbourg. The bands exquisite sonic palette is deepened by Cairo-based guest musicians Mohamed Ibrahim, Mohamed Moe Asem, andSammy Sayed, as well as by longtime SCG compatriot Eyvind Kang. Recorded in Cairo between 2013 and 2014, Teslam represents a further evolution of Alvarius B.s peerlessly idiosyncratic pop sensibility, which is just as volatile and unclassifiable as his more experimental work. His songwriting -- both on his own, and in partnership with Cherif El Masri -- is marked by a unity of purpose that has compressed countless musical and emotional incongruities into a handful of sharp-edged, pitch-black jewels. A brooding track composed by keyboardist Adham Zidan (The Great Implosion) perfectly complements the records uneasy mood. As usual, Alvarius B.s lyrics comprise an apocalyptic pile-up of cruel metaphors at the intersection of culture, politics and international crime. But they take on new power and new implications as sung by El Masri and Hemeda, whose seductive voices are as inviting as a welcome mat at the gates of hell. Each song stands on its own while also fitting into a planet-sized jigsaw puzzle detailing dark associations and secret narratives that stretch back as far as the foundation of the world. Arguably Alvarius B.s most accessible work to date, Teslam is a generously baited steel-jaw trap for the unwary listener. Like The Invisible Hands 2013 debut,Teslam inevitably reflects the precarious political circumstances in which it was conceived and recorded. As such, its a vivid document not just of an unlikely musical collaboration, but also of a critical moment of hope, defiance, rage and sorrow in one of the worlds most venerable cities. [This limited-edition razor-edged stainless-steel CD comes in a beautiful die cut balsawood jacket that folds out to form a fully operational guillotine. Just kidding, but it does come as a digipak CD with lyrics booklet and lovely artwork]." - B. Kearney.

Format: CD

Country: UK
Price: $18.00
"Bruce Lacey is the quintessential British eccentric. Bruce Lacey is an artist, a musician, a filmmaker, a shaman, a genius and visionary. Since the 1950s hes made film, music, art and performances, and collaborated with everyone from The Beatles to Throbbing Gristle. He was part of the groundbreaking Cybernetic Serendipity exhibition in 1968. He even built a robot that won the Alternative Miss World. This is the first time his extraordinary music has been released. Made and recorded using household objects as well as a modified synthesizer (made by a schoolboy in the early 1970s), it ranges from abstract tribal concrète to droning electronic trance. Bruce Lacey has been a busy man. Since the 1950s hes been making film, making music, making art, sculpture, rituals, performances, and more besides. Many of his films have explored the basics of life and sex all with a sprinkle of irony, realism and ritualism. Many of his films have required music, music which Lacey made himself, improvising with bottles, rattles, typewriters and a tape machine. By the early 1970s, Lacey was exploring stone circles and ancient rights; hed also bought a home-made synthesizer from a schoolboy whod advertised it in Exchange & Mart. Hed made it as a home project. A week later Lacey bought a keyboard from another schoolboy in Exchange & Mart. Lacey set about slowly modifying this synth and improvising music influenced by his stone circle visits over the next few years. This music is made only when "The Muse" descends. It is impossible for Bruce to perform this improvised music live. The music he made was occasionally available on cassette at his exhibitions in the 1970s. The late Poly Styrene (who had a copy) compared Laceys music to Tangerine Dream. Lacey had not heard of Tangerine Dream. This is the first time this raw and extraordinary music by one of the UKs most extraordinary men has been made available. CD housed in a jewel case with a large 16-page booklet including full-color rare photos and an essay by BFI/Flipside archivist Will Fowler." - Trunk.

"Seemingly endless sonic flame-throwers of phased white noise streak across your inner landscape, as stupidly loud and overly-backlit lead guitar emissions perpetrated by a perpetually be-shaded longhair pummel the similarly be-shaded but barely adequate musical backing that sags and creaks under the wattage. Occasionally, lead vocals of a singular variety are provided by said be-shaded mad axeman, whose paranoid personality ensures all songs are delivered in a voice of querulous subterranean gargling from beyond the valley of Alan Vega. My giddy aunt, whats this, then, a Meaty Beaty Big & Bouncy from the Underworld? A rough guide to Japrocks most intuitive non-career movers?

Title: The William Parker Sessionography
Format: Book
Label: Centering
Country: USA
Price: $53.00
"Excerpt from the Introduction by Ed Hazell: Compiling a sessionography of the seemingly inexhaustible William Parker calls for a relentless and thorough researcher. Rarely has a musicians career been so conscientiously documented. Rick Lopez William Parker Sessionography can take its place among the great discographical classics such as Walter C. Allens bio-discography of Fletcher Henderson, Hendersonia and The Coltrane Reference by Lewis Porter, Chris DeVito, David Wild, Yasuhiro Fujioka, and Wolf Schmaler. Like those other encyclopedic compilations of names, locations, dates, and commentary, this one tells a story of an artist and an era as compelling as any novel and more detailed than any biography could aspire to be. Much like the music itself, this book is an act of devotion, not just to facts but to shared ideals and a shared love of beauty. it was done because it needed to be done. This is a vast microcosm of one jazz musician that reveals the macrocosm of jazz during the period of time covered -- an extensive history of jazz through the work schedule of one profound jazz musician and his affiliations with elemental participants in the history of that time and as importantly ever more, this time. 15 years in the making. Astonishing, profound, worthy of high honors in the field of research and any all positive adjectives that can be bestowed on such a mighty creation. Just having this book in ones hands feels like holding a sacrament. And, its beautifully printed -- front & back covers in through each of the 480 pages within. An essential reference work for now and all futures. This is a fully annotated (and generously illustrated) record of practically every time that William Parker has ever played a gig / recording session, with all and every ensemble, as band member or leader, from 1972 clear through to Vision Festival June 2014. Did I use the word "astonishing" already? This is an 8.5"x11" format, 482-page book, with 370+ illustrations, weighing in at over 3 pounds, and was private-press published in an edition of 500 copies." - Centering.

Artist: MARTIRANO, SALVATORE
Title: The SalMar Construction
Format: LP
Label: Sub Rosa
Country: Belgium
Price: $16.00
"The SalMar Construction is an amazing large music synthesis engine conceived and constructed in the early 1970s by a composer for use by a composer. These unreleased recordings were made at IRCAM in Paris in 1983, illustrating the power that an electronic composition can achieve when the composer arrives at a true synergy with his synthesizer. This LP represents a significant performance by Salvatore Martirano (1927-1995) on his unique instrument, the SalMar Construction. Under development from the late 1960s, the SalMar is believed to be the first interactive "composing machine," with digital logic circuits at its heart. When you listen to this recorded performance of Sal Martirano playing his "Construction," you experience such mastery. The instrument under his command does his bidding, and what you hear are compositions, not jams. In 1963, Martirano joined the Theory and Composition Department at the University of Illinois, where he remained on the faculty until his retirement and death in 1995. Many of Martiranos early works incorporate twelve-tone compositional techniques as well as jazz, vernacular, and multimedia idioms. His best-known composition, "Ls GA" ("Lincolns Gettysburg Address"), was widely performed in the late 1960s and early 1970s and became associated with the anti-war movement. In 1969, Salvatore Martirano along with a group of engineers and musicians at the University of Illinois began work on the design and construction of a musical electronic instrument: the SalMar Construction.

Artist: MONOTON
Title: Monotonprodukt 02
Format: LP
Label: Desire
Country: France
Price: $25.00
"Although Monoton dried up in 1992, its entire output consisting of a handful of mini-albums and limited-run EPs, its minimalist electronica appears increasingly ahead of its time. The sole work of Austrias Konrad Becker, it was a key influence on the brand of Eurotronica found on labels from Kompakt to Mego. Becker began hooking up analog rhythm boxes and tone generators in late 70s Vienna, churning out a terse music of bleeps, pings and subsonic pulses, all plunged in tape delay and reverb. Blau -- originally titled Monotonprodukt 02 -- was Monotons first release from 1980. The buzzing machines often sound strained to their limits, yet the overall mood is somber, a palette of grays and umbers punctuated by Beckers incoherent murmurs. Dubwise is a spooky premonition of Rhythm And Sounds Germanic reggae. Muffled steel drums resound around Wirklichkeit, while Teil 2 is seared with a violin drone. Even after 28 years, Monotons unearthly, steely beauty is preserved intact." --Rob Young; This classic album is now reissued on vinyl for the first time ever and original copies exchange for $200 nowadays. 1,000 copies on clear blue vinyl. 350 gram sleeve with holes.

Artist: N.E.W.
Title: Motion
Format: LP
Label: Dancing Wayang
Country: UK
Price: $24.00
"Motion is the new full-length studio album by London-based power-jazz trio of Steve Noble on drums, John Edwards on double bass and Alex Ward on electric guitar. This trio has played together for over a decade and have become one of Londons tightest units, locking in and breaking apart with uncanny telepathy and synchronicity. Operating at the junction of free improv and rock, they swing and shred in equal measure. Both modes, and the effortless, deft moves across the spaces between, are represented in fine style on this release. Live, N.E.W. seem to embody the classic power trio -- whether were talking jazz or rock, its the power that counts. Alex on guitar contorts wildly, both sonically and physically, thrashing in his chair to the death metal moves in his head, Steve sits rock-steady and immutable at his drum kit, other than his limbs, which form a chaotic blur, producing the most precise of sounds, and John has eyes tight shut and explores, brutalizes, and caresses every facet of his bass. This record is as close as you get to the incomparably exhilarating experience of seeing N.E.W. play live. Beautifully recorded with fine attention to detail, Motion puts you within a headbanging flick of Alexs bouffant hair, within the blast-zone of that power that has shaken the walls many times at all of Londons long-standing improv nights, within infectious distance of the evident joy that these three musicians bring to creating this sound, moment by unrepeatable moment. Recorded at Eastcote Studios, London and pressed on heavyweight 180 gram black vinyl in a limited edition of 300. It comes packaged in hand-screenprinted wrap-around sleeves, featuring ancient cave drawings chosen specifically by Steve Noble for this release. The insert features liner notes by Thurston Moore." - Dancing Wayang.

"Andy Votel and Demdike Stares Sean Cantys concept group, NeoTantrik, return with the fruits of recent performances alongside Buchla maestro Suzanne Ciani, Swiss jazz legend Bruno Spoerri, and folk artist Jane Weaver. Recorded during sporadic visits to theaters and art spaces across the world, Blue Amiga follows one year on from their Intervisions (VHSX 009LP), further flinging the coordinates of their improvised alloys to encompass, extract and reduce a broad spectra of influences and disciplines taken from theatrical sound design, Italian library and computer music with general abstract and unrehearsed mechanical/human/electronic interfaces. Put simply; its a trip. Augmented by the presence of synth music and electro-jazz pioneers Ciani and Spoerri -- both subjects of excellent reissues by Votels Finders Keepers label -- plus the return of Jane Weaver and home-made music by the Sound Awareness blogs Martin Young, the team sweep us through engrossing soundscapes fanning out from sub-aquatic drone to radiant electro-acoustica, gloomy cues and strung-out, opiated ambience of a deeply romantic, adult nature. Garbed in Asia Argentos gorgeous cover design -- featuring an image depicting the private family swimming pool photography of giallo actress Daria Nicolodi -- Blue Amiga wears its cinematic influences quite literally on its sleeve, while musically rebuking the obvious stylistic blinkers of European film music in favor of genuine naked exploration and expansion." - Pre -Cert Home Entertainment.

Following on from Blue Amiga (VHSX 010LP) that came and went in a flash, Omnichrom is a more brooding, studied affair. Unfurling from a delicate modular opening sequence, the A-side flows into a hallucinogenic fever-dream fleshed out with barely-there analog malfunctions and strings that suddenly throw you into a cacophony of noise in a proper creeped-out, tense fashion. The flipside carries on from this point -- pushing you deeper into a Badalamenti-esque soundworld replete with unnerving found sounds and mechanical percussion swung in and out of one of the trippiest Kosmische sessions weve heard in a while.

Heralded in his native land though he was, he maintained a low profile from the early 70s, never made an impact overseas, and his recordings have been difficult to access. This collection has been selected by Prouds biographer David Nichols and will engender a new appreciation of Prouds music.

Artist: ROZMANN, AKOS
Title: 12 Stationer VI
Format: Double LP
Label: Ideologic Organ
Country: France
Price: $31.00
"Ákos Rózmann (1939-2005) studied at the Bártók conservatory in Budapest and took diplomas in both composition and organ playing at the Liszt Academy. In 1971, he was given a scholarship to study electronic music in Stockholm. His encounter with the electronic tools was a revolutionary experience for him and was to give a whole new direction to his work. Soon he abandoned composition for acoustic instruments and was later to claim that instrumental music had no future. For several years, he earned his living as an organist at St. Erics Catholic Cathedral in Stockholm, often using recordings of organ sounds made in the dead of the night as a source for his electronic works. Rózmann often preferred monumental forms and several of his most prominent works, such as 12 Stationer (trans. 12 Stations) and Mässa (trans. Mass), grew side-by-side over a long period of time. With a few rare exceptions, the conflict between good and evil was the basic theme in his works. The fight went on continuously in arenas and within power relations that would suddenly change. In Rózmanns imagined world, no room was given to chance. Big powers, luminous or dark, would lie behind the most trivial everyday events. A large portion of Tibetan Buddhism gradually infiltrated his Catholic Weltanschauung, and 12 Stationer, composed between 1978 and 2001, is a musical interpretation of the Tibetan Wheel of Life. The last part of the 12 stations, old age and death, is called the celebrators in Rózmanns version (completed in 2001). When asked what sort of celebration he meant he replied: the merriment you hear is false, it is not genuine, it is empty. Dörr Med Tårar (trans. Door With Tears) from 1988-1989 is unmistakeably an homage to Pierre Henry and the title alludes to Variations For A Door And A Sigh. During one of my last encounters with Rózmann, he told me in depth about how Henrys influence was significant in leading him to choose electronic music. He regarded Le Voyage from the Tibetan Book of the Dead to be the most important pioneering piece in the history of electronic music. Ákos Rózmann showed particular devotion to his work during more than thirty active years. During his lifetime he never sought, nor did he win any mentionable recognition. As a true modernist, he didnt compose with an audience or the critics in mind. His mission was to compose for the future. It was his conviction that the mystical energy for compositional work should derive straight from God. It is a truly great thing to witness the publication of this album." -Mats Lindström, Stockholm, February 2012.

Title: The Glisten ep
Format: 12"
Label: Alberts Basement
Country: Australia
Price: $16.00
"Alberts Basement is damn excited to present ‘The Glisten e.p.’ 12-inch by Melbourne’s very own Secret Valley.
The follow up to Secret Valley’s self-titled debut, ‘The Glisten e.p.’ glows with pulsing keyboards, dirty guitar, close/dreamy lyrics and bangin’ beats constructed to party and transcend existence. The two singers Dan Cross and Phoebe Robertson begin articulating their feelings in a warm and bright manner, with abstract interjections that are juicy as hell and take us along a trail-ride of dreams, yearnings, bummers and bad vibes, all the while keeping it fun and humorous with self-awareness and inventive descriptions such as “sometimes friends of coincidence used to twist the day time vine”. The words are where lyricist Dan Cross lays it bear and toys with his song craft. Recorded over 2013/2014 and mastered by Mikey Young, ‘The Glisten e.p.’ is a home made masterpiece. From the hand painted eagle with a crow’s body on the album cover to the recording and music video for lead track ‘Angry Loners Unite’ (featuring comics star Simon Hanselmann) Dan has been in control. The whole e.p. was recorded by Dan in his home studio in Fitzroy, Melbourne. He made it how he likes it, and he made it for you!

Dan has been honing his craft for over 15 years as Rentboy and Secret Valley is a more pop progression. His songs are complex blueprints, a maze of articulate arrangements and blossoming interplay. The songs are anthemic.

Angry Loners Unite is a bitter sweet pop hit. Be Happy & Enjoy Yourself is an epic white trash rhapsody. Crow Bar is catchy and claustrophobic, and My Two Kids, a cover of a Mad Nanna tune, groans and shines.
New addition Phoebe Robertson from The Curse sings her lines strong and confidently, her bright voice beaming into the atmosphere and her trombone tearing away triumphantly.

Soul food for dark shadows.

Comes with lyric sheet and digital download code." - Alberts Basement.

Titled “Death Or Glory”, this impossibly obscure sla...b was originally self-released on Jimmys own Star Theatre Productions imprint in 1982, its tiny pressing disappearing instantly and the name surviving on want lists alone. Over thirty years later, our deluxe reissue is mastered direct from the master tape and now comes in a picture sleeve with never-before-seen Ed Colver photographs.

Price: $9.00
"Wild man, Jimmy Mack started playing electronic music in the late 70s. Together with his wife Lynne, they formed the duo "Jim and I" and played live in and around Los Angeles for awhile. Their music was so unusual and futuristic that one club owner amusingly used to call them « The Jetsons »!!!. The pair managed to record some of their songs in studio but sadly never released any records. Once Lynne had enough of playing, Jimmy wanted to keep at it, and he did. This time he went on his own and created a music so unique that it’s almost impossible to pigeonhole. He was now Jimmy Smack, and apparently for obvious reason. We’re not gonna say more because this is none of our business. What’s more important to know is that he released three incredible but very limited records, 1982’s Death or glory 7’’, 1982’s Anguish 12’’ and 1983’s Death Rocks 7’’. All on his own Star Theatre Productions label, named after a building he rented where he taught dance. Jimmy was and still is an incredible dancer. The Star Theatre was also the home of many San Pedro rock band like The Minutemen and Saccharine trust where those bands rehearsed and played live. Jimmy was also featured with an untitled live track on the Mighty Feeble compilation that came out on the New Alliance label. You can also find the song ‘’scarlett beast’’ on ‘’Killed by Death’’ volume 14. Now, 30 years later.

Death Vault records is proud and thrilled to reissue his Death Rocks record. It features Hating Life and Depression. Two songs of true misanthropic and nihilistic expression from the dark side of life. No boring reedeeming political or social values, just plain hate and pessimism. Imagine a darker and dirgier Suicide, circa their first album.Spooky and mysterious. Doom and gloom electro-punk weirdness played with an electric bagpipe and rhythm machine. Minimal and full of soul. No synthesizer was used even tough it sounds like it. According to the man himself, the original was pressed in around 50 copies. But you can now own your own copy for a fraction of what the original goes for. This reissue comes straight from the original master tape and sounds as good if not better than the original. 500 copies pressed at 45rpm. Printed center labels unlike the original with large center hole. Pocket sleeve is printed on high quality cardstock. Comes with two inserts, one 7x7 inch glossy paper with unseen pictures and a 4,5x5,5 inch on special paper as a thanks list. All around a beautiful and quality package!

Sleeve is thick quality cardstock, one 7x7 glossy insert with unseen pictures, a smaller insert on special quality paper. Lots of reels baked and transferred to find the right songs because many reels had no info on em!" - Death Vault.

Title: Guitar Star
Format: LP
Label: One Kind Favor
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"First time vinyl reissue of the Outsider, Real People, proto-punk fuzz of Ron Warren Gandertons debut under the Sound Ceremony name, Guitar Star, replete with more mellow modes than later offerings. During the late 1970s multi-instrumentalist Ganderton (guitar, harmonica, keyboards and piano) along with a rotating cast of accompanists (including future members of the Pretenders, late period progressive rockers Quasar, and Subway Sect) created a hard to narrowly define, small catalog of sounds praised by private-press hunters, esoteric appreciators and out of time searchers. Gandertons output holds echoes of monotone mavens like proto-punks Jonathan Richman and Lou Reed, similarities to cult-raved acts such as Armand Schaubroeck and Kenneth Higney, and carries a loose influence of the talking blues tradition while maintaining a uniqueness and singularity laced with 60s fuzz, primitive and skittering rhythms, and alternately confrontational and heart-on-sleeve topicality -- thusly eking out its own sonic territory with a population of one. To put it down succinctly, just like a period advertisement did, Ron Warren Ganderton is, One of rocks individuals. Insert with detailed liner notes from Jeremy Cargill (Ugly Things / Got Kinda Lost), plus rare photos." - One Kind Favor.

Title: Universal Mind
Format: LP
Label: Arc Light Editions
Country: UK
Price: $24.00
"Arc Light Editions follows up two successful vinyl-only releases (Arthur Russell, Ingram Marshall) with Jone Takamäki Trios Universal Mind, a forgotten Finnish spiritual improv record from 1982, fully authorized by Jone himself. The tracks on Universal Mind are based on traditional Indian arrangements, with Japanese influence, leaning towards Alice Coltranes spirituality and pace. In addition to traditional improv instrumentation (saxophone, bass, drums), the record also includes synthesizers, gongs, finger pianos, a vibraphone and washbasins. Jone says, recalling making the record: "We played a lot together, daily, at our rehearsal space before recording. We went through the melodies and talked about how to handle them with a kind of different angle, improvised a lot with different sounds. We talked about tempos, especially we were diving deep into special moods, how each of those melodies talked to us. They are mostly old love songs from India, more folk songs than classical music." After the recording, they left immediately on a European tour. "I told the people at the record company not to do anything to the record before we came back, but it was released while we were away. We saw the record on the windows of different record shops when we drove into town from the tour!" The record has never appeared on CD, and the 1982 vinyl release has rarely been heard outside Finland. The only place the release has re-emerged in recent memory is with the track "Bhupala I" selected on Son of Arctic Hysteria, a CD compilation of Finnish avant-garde and experimental music." - Arc Light Editions.

Title: s/t

Label: Vinilisssimo
Country: Spain
Price: $26.00
"Tarkus was born after the 1971 split of Telegraph Avenue, one of the most popular Peruvian bands at the time. TA member Walo Carrillo was joined by Argentinean musicians Guillermo Van Lacke, whom he had met previously in Lima, and 16-year-old Dario Gianella. They got together and started making music very influenced by bands such as Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Cream, and Deep Purple. They immediately developed a heavy, hard rock sound uncommon in Peru, and asked former Telegraph Avenue member Alex Nathanson to join them. They recorded their first album between April and May of 1972 for the MAG record label, which was expecting something closer to Telegraph Avenue and didnt know how to market such a heavy sound. Soon after, guitarist and main composer Dario Gianella decided to leave the band to follow his religious faith, just before they presented their debut LP live. As a result, the band disintegrated without making their official debut and only around 50 promo copies of the album were actually distributed. Time has given this LP the significance it rightly deserves as one of the foundations of Latin American hard rock, and Vinilísssimo is proud to present this new vinyl reissue. Housed in a gatefold sleeve; on 180 gram vinyl." - Vinilisssimo.

Title: The Rules of the Game (Original Studio Recordings 1978-1996)
Format: Double LP
Label: Into The Light
Country: Greece
Price: $30.00
"Into The Light Records continues to shine light on the undiscovered heritage of Greek electronic music, highlighting the work of prolific Greek composer George Theodorakis on the labels third archival release. The Rules of the Game features mostly unreleased studio recordings Theodorakis made between 1978 and 1996, with the addition of selected material taken from his sought-after Margo and Sima LPs. George Theodorakis is the son of legendary Greek composer Mikis Theodorakis. Unlike his father, George only released four albums -- pressed in small quantities -- over a period of time spanning nearly two decades. Despite such limited official output, Theodorakis was intensely involved in music. George has always had the privilege of owning a well-equipped home studio -- the SSR Studio (1976-1984) and later the Theta Studio (1985-1987, 1993-1997) -- where hed spend most of his days working, often completely losing all track of time. These studios provided the ideal environment where he could explore new synthesized sounds and freely experiment. Although Theodorakis music can be considered reclusive, esoteric and personal -- especially if measured against the standards of most Greek productions of the same time -- a number of his compositions found their way into the soundtracks of theater plays, TV series, dance performances, etc. Theodorakis work was probably too forward-looking to meet with wider success and appeal to a broad audience back then; The Rules of the Game hopes to finally earn the composer the attention and acclaim his music undoubtedly deserves." - Into the Light.

Format: Double CD
Label: Industrial
Country: UK
Price: $22.00
"Throbbing Gristles second full-length, originally released in 1978, captures alienation in its purest form. The line-up of Chris Carter, Peter Christopherson, Genesis P-Orridge and Cosey Fanni Tutti was a vehicle for everything bizarre, extreme and controversial. From the ravaged live track "Blood On The Floor" to the hostile phone recording on "Death Threats," TG lobotomized convention, whether musical or ideological. The lingering "Hamburger Lady" pulses with a story of a burn victim, and the bands restraint and careful composition makes it one of their best creations of all time, something absolutely terrifying. Full of tape-manipulation, computer noise and feedback, D.O.A epitomizes Throbbing Gristles unparalleled anti-music, cementing their status as "wreckers of civilization." Cover artwork has been painstakingly restored from the original source material. Part of the re-release of Throbbing Gristles first five albums on vinyl and CD. Each album has been restored and remastered specifically for each format by Chris Carter from 24bit "baked tape" digital transfers of the original first generation analogue master tapes.

Each CD special-edition also includes an exclusive bonus CD containing content from the year of the albums original release, including live tracks and remastered singles." -Industrial.

Title: Heathen Earth: The Live Sound Of Throbbing Gristle
Format: Double CD
Label: Industrial
Country: UK
Price: $22.00
"Originally released in 1980, Heathen Earth is a crucial live document of industrial pioneers Throbbing Gristle. In member Chris Carters own words: "You had to have been there. Which is what we always say about TG. TG on record and TG live are two completely different things." This album is probably the closest approximation of the two youll ever get: its a "live in-studio recording" made in front of a small audience and the event was filmed by Monte Cazzaza with the intention of also releasing it on video. The majority of the set is instrumental, fluctuating between the raw electronics of their early work and the bands more melodic material. Tracks include a rework of early classic "After Cease To Exist" and Brion Gysin fave "Dreammachine." The bonus CD includes live recordings, plus the 7" single versions of "Subhuman" and "Adrenalin."

Title: Throbbing Gristle Bring You... 20 Jazz Funk Greats
Format: Double CD
Label: Industrial
Country: UK
Price: $22.00
"Originally released in 1979, 20 Jazz Funk Greats is Throbbing Gristles pop-influenced masterwork. Its hard to believe the beautiful, conventionally-attractive Cosey Fanni Tutti on this albums front cover previously gave herself milk and blood enemas in front of a live audience. Additionally, the song "Hot On The Heels Of Love" is far removed from the dissonant nihilism of the previous TG albums. Its a sleek, minimal synth-pop song that foreshadows Tuttis later work as Chris & Cosey. Still, 20 Jazz Funk Greats is underpinned by a profound distance from accessibility. The breezy luminosity of "Persuasion" and "Six Six Sixties" is still marked with casual bits of distortion and absurdism. Preceding dark synth-pop (and everything else), TGs third album is far ahead of its time and still sounds as relevant as ever. The CD version includes a bonus CD of live recordings, including two versions of the manic classic, "Discipline." The 8-page full-color book includes visual ephemera and previously-unpublished photographs. Cover artwork has been painstakingly restored from the original source material." -Industrial

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.
