Artist: ABRAMS, JOSHUA
Title: Magnetoception
Format: Double LP
Label: Eremite
Country: USA
Price: $40.00
"On Magnetoception, Joshua Abrams is back exploring new contexts for the guimbri, the three-stringed north African bass lute at the heart of his Eremite recordings Natural Information (2010) and Represencing (2012). The artists first large-scale work on vinyl, Magnetoception began as a commission by Eremite for Abrams to make a double LP based in extended performances by an ensemble of Abrams, guitarists Emmett Kelly and Jeff Parker, and drummer Hamid Drake. The group recorded the nucleus of Magnetoception live to two-track, circled around vintage Neumanns and a woodstove in a Berwyn, Illinois attic in February 2013. Over the next year at his Chicago studio, Parlor One, Abrams added solo pieces for harp and clarinet, along with Lisa Alvarados harmonium, Ben Boyes autoharp, and percussion embellishments by Drake. Abramss compositions are a fascinating nexus of ideas from non-western traditional musics, minimalism, and jazz designed to catalyze his musicians toward a single group-mind organism of sound. On his 2012 album Represencing Abrams presented his music in capsule-length pieces realized by duo and trio groupings drawn from a pool of a dozen musicians. Magnetoception presents one ensemble methodically unfolding his compositions over longer durations. The performances intricately layer rhythm, melody, and drone into sonic textiles of extraordinary expressive breadth, by turns dense or spacious, repetitive or indeterminate, clattering or placid. In addition to his masterful contributions on trap kit, tabla, conga, and frame drums, Hamid Drake acts as a direct link to the visionary music of Don Cherry, one of Abramss essential artistic models. Magnetoception is the fullest measure yet of Joshua Abramss sound world. It sounds like no other music being made today. Presented in a heavyweight Stoughton "laserdisc" gatefold sleeve; mastered by Helge Sten at Sten Audio Virus Lab, Oslo, Norway; vinyl cut at Sterling by Steve Fallone and manufactured by RTI. Edition of 875 vinyl copies." - Eremite.

Artist: AKITSA
Title: Grands tyrans
Format: Cass
Label: Hospital Productions
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Five years in the making, Montreals Akitsa delivers their fifth album of spirited and inevitable black metal fatalism. A respected and passionate disciple of the black metal underground from its earliest days, Akitsas Outre-Tombe has remained true to the spirit of the genre, while carving out a personal space within it. Akitsa was founded in an environment of isolation. A pre-Akitsa Outre-Tombe gained experience from early maneuvers out of the DIY cassette culture of the early 90s experimental mail circuit, and he eventually transmuted this abstraction and freedom back into misanthropic black metal -- and Akitsa was born. This passionate yet primitive North American black metal pioneer came into existence regardless of any local indifference to the need for it. Fusing a love for industrial noise, punk, and creepy synth soundscapes with pure raw black metal, Grands tyrans is the most challenging, powerful, and fully realized synthesis of these various strands to date. While sonically Akitsa has matured into a perfect amalgamation of extreme music (metal, punk, experimental), Outre-Tombes voice has the rude and fearless energy of youth expanding upon the diversity of emotions that black metal festers in the complex mixture of violence and introspection. Grands tyrans masterfully strikes with urgent immediacy like the falcon springing through frost covered branches commencing the hunt." - Hospital Productions.

Artist: AMBARCHI, OREN
Title: Sleepwalkers Conviction
Format: LP
Label: Black Truffle
Country: Austria
Price: $25.00
"Sleepwalkers Conviction documents a 2014 performance by Oren Ambarchi in collaboration with a 20-piece ensemble conducted by Ilan Volkov and featuring members of the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra and Speak Percussion. Foregoing the rhythmic propulsion and distortion-saturated harmonics that have featured in much of Ambarchis recent work, the LPs single 40-minute piece inhabits a hushed, almost static space of extended tones, percussive shimmer, and creaking strings. Rather than adopting the position of a soloist, Ambarchi allows his sub-bass guitar tones and swirling Leslie textures to blend seamlessly with the ensemble, made up of double basses, horns, and percussion. The group sound has a near-cavernous depth, as waves of low beating tones and distant percussive textures gently wash over one another, coalescing into an undulating mass. Steering clear of bombast and new music clichés, the result is a work of meditative beauty that touches on the haunted ambience of late Luigi Nono, the submerged sonics of Bryarss The Sinking of the Titanic, and the melancholy rituals of Christoph Heemann and Andrew Chalks Mirror, while remaining unmistakably marked by the singular sensibility Ambarchi has developed over countless performances and recordings" - Francis Plagne. Design by Stephen OMalley with cover artwork by crys cole. Vinyl cut made by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin. Edition of 300.

Artist: ARESKI/BRIGITTE FONTAINE
Title: Je Ne Connais Pas Cet Homme
Format: LP
Label: Superior Viaduct
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"Following their groundbreaking collaboration with the Art Ensemble of Chicago, Comme à la Radio, Areski and Brigitte Fontaine began recording almost exclusively together as a duo. Originally released in 1973, Je Ne Connais Pas Cet Homme is their first record billed under both names. Deeply rooted in North African and European folk traditions, the album features evocative vignettes with breezy vocals and minimal accompaniment of classical guitar, strings, and woodwinds. As always, there is a mercurial quality to their lyrics. The title track (translated as “I Do Not Know This Man”) suggests at once Apostle Peters denial and a poetic acknowledgement. On “C’est Normal” Fontaine playfully questions the status quo while Areski offers satirical answers. What makesJe Ne Connais Pas Cet Homme one of their best-loved albums, though, is its remarkable sense of intimacy -- as if Areski and Fontaine beckon listeners into their strange and beautiful world. This first-time domestic release continues Superior Viaducts reissue campaign of Fontaines classic 70s catalog." - Superior Viaduct.

Artist: ART & LANGUAGE AND THE RED CRAYOLA
Title: Corrected Slogans
Format: LP
Label: Drag City
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Corrected Slogans was first pressed by Art & Language and The Red Crayola in 1976; it was the first mention of the The Red Crayolas name on LP since 1968. The only review it received at the time was by Glenn OBrian in Interview magazine; his response was a positive one, though he found the material ironic. By the time the album was made available to the public, it was clear that The Red Crayola would continue with Jesse Chamberlain joining Mayo Thompson. This was the start of five years of steady activity. Corrected Slogans was repressed on the UK label Recommended Records in 1981. Drag City reissued it for the first time on CD in 1997." - Drag City.

Artist: ARTEMIEV, EDWARD
Title: The Mirror/Stalker OST
Format: LP
Label: Superior Viaduct
Country: USA
Price: $26.00
2014 release. Housed in a gatefold sleeve. "It comes as no surprise that Andrei Tarkovsky, master of Soviet cinema, turned to composer Eduard Artemiev to score his two lyrical and haunting films, The Mirror(1975) and Stalker (1979), as he had done forSolaris. Artemievs magnificent soundtrack to The Mirror is the natural follow-up to Solaris. Dense, slow-moving, and often disorienting mood pieces with Baroque sensibilities resonate beyond the films dream-like images. For Stalker -- Tarkovskys other science fiction masterpiece -- Artemiev was inspired by Indian classical music and employed layers of synth tones, flute and tar (a traditional Iranian stringed instrument) to create a central theme as spellbinding as The Zone, a setting in the film where laws of physics no longer apply. Superior Viaduct presents the first-time official release of these two astonishingly unique soundtracks. Recommended for fans of Lech Jankowskis music for Brothers Quay films, BC Gilbert & G Lewis and Oneohtrix Point Never." - Superior Viaduct.

Artist: AYE AYE
Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Richie/Testostertunes
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"The CV on Aye Aye, the long-rumored self-titled debut by Philadelphias premier desert blues marsupials, runs deep through the beerstrewn underbelly of Philly rock. The Gibbons Bros unmistakable slow-motion, big-chord fuzz will be familiar to anyone whos taken a plunge into the Bardo Pond soundpool over the last few decades, though a cultivated ear will note more grits and butts and less pedalboard worship here. Ben Leapheart retains his very official title of greatest drummer in Philadelphia -- have you shmoes not heard Purling Hiss or Watery Love? -- with his innate understanding that the drums lead, not merely keep time. Yeah, yeah, cool, but what does it sound like? OK bub, how about terrestrial crunching rock drifting over a great expanse? Aye Aye is limited to 300 copies on vinyl and includes a complimentary digital download with purchase." - RIchie.

Artist: BAY LAUREL, ALICIA
Title: Music from Living On the Earth
Format: LP
Label: EM
Country: Japan
Price: $23.00
"Alicia Bay Laurel is well known as the writer and illustrator of one of the classic books of the back-to-the-earth movement, the 1970 hand-written guide to living the good life, Living On the Earth. She is also an accomplished singer, songwriter, and guitarist, the latter skill honed by studying with John Fahey. The songs on Music from Living On the Earth were composed concurrently with the writing of the book, permeated by the sun and soil of the commune life. Bright and earthy paeans to the natural world, featuring ABLs pure, strong, and uplifting voice atop her fluid, confident, and deft steel-string acoustic guitar fingerpicking, her style showing that she learned well from Fahey. She also collaborated with San Francisco Tape Music Center co-founder Ramon Sender Barayón, who contributes the 40-voice choral arrangement for the closing track. Although these songs were written as the 60s became the 70s, Music from Living On the Earth was actually recorded in 2000, first issued as a self-produced CD, and reissued on CD by EM Records in 2006 (EM 1047CD). This 2015 15th anniversary edition is its first appearance on vinyl, and includes liner notes by the artist as well as English and Japanese lyrics, allowing listeners to again hear ABLs blues, jazz, and Indian music influences meld with folk roots to glorious effect." - EM.

Artist: BELL, SANDRA
Title: Dreams of Falling
Format: Cass
Label: Körper/Leib
Country: Italy
Price: $9.00
"This is the repress of “Dreams of Falling”, the first album by musician and poet Sandra Bell, from New Zealand." - Körper/Leib.
"The record was born after a discussion with Peter Jefferies in Dunedin, about rerecording the song “Industrial Night“.I had known Peter vaguely from Auckland but never worked with him. “Industrial Night” was on my first vinyl release the EP “Blackbirds” which I had recorded in Auckland, and I wanted to reinterpret it. For the next year, from the end of 1990 until the end of 1991, we also recorded a back log of my other songs on and off at our home in Maitland St, and also Fish St and Studio 13. Peter was a master of the Teac 4 track, and of musical arrangement. I was able to experiment and realise the potential of each song with his advanced skills. It seems miraculous looking back now that it was all done on 4 tracks, bouncing down at times and using two 4 tracks at one time for other tracks. I remember a cut in a song meant an actual cut of the tape, which Peter did with precision and skill. The wonderful musicians who played on the album took the songs from mundane to sublime- David Mitchells lead break on Industrial Night was exhilarating and exciting, Kathy Bull added clever bass lines, Peters industrial drumming was a constant force, Alastair Galbraiths violin, Bruce Bluchers guitar, and the unmistakable distorted keyboards of Peter Gutteridge all added intrinsically to the final sound . Actually Peter Gutteridge recently said to me about Subway Nihilism” I should have got a co- writing credit for that song” as it was created in a session at Maitland St, when I put a poem to his riff, so he was right about that. A couple of the songs where influenced by a spell living alone in the Queensland rain forest- Manai is influenced by aboriginal music and legend, as was Waitawhile, which is the name of a spikey rainforest plant. The Country girls is a song for my sister Jean, about the loss of our mother when we were young. Floating aground was written about Aramoana- Peter and I had been inside for a few days totally absorbed in recording-I was speaking to my elderly neighbour who told me 13 people had been killed at Aramoana, I thought she was completely mad, but so sadly it was true. We were at Aramoana for a memorial service, and walking along the beach there were flowers in the water, which reminded me of St Marie De La Mere in the Sth of France, where the gypsys take an effigy of St Marie into the sea each year. Dreams of Falling was picked up by Xpressway who had released Peters album, then by Turbulence in Belgium, and opened up a new world for me which led on to another 3 albums, tours of America and Europe." - Sandra Bell.

Artist: BERROCAL/DAVID FENECH/VINCENT EPPLAY, JAC
Title: Antigravity
Format: CD
Label: Blackest Ever Black
Country: UK
Price: $18.00
"Legendary trumpeter Jac Berrocal joins two fellow travelers in the French avant-garde, David Fenech and Vincent Epplay. A lugubrious mise-en-scène in which ice-cold outlaw jazz meets musique concrète, DIY whimsy, and dubwise studio science, all watched over by the lost souls and hungry ghosts of rock n roll. The trios first album together, Antigravity is a richly imagined universe combining original compositions and détourned standards. Berrocal revisits his own signature piece "Rock n Roll Station," which first appeared on his 77 LP Parallèles (TES 037CD) with chain-wielding, leather-clad wildman of British rock n roll Vince Taylor singing the lead, and Berrocal on micd up bicycle; here, the Frenchman takes the vocal reins. A barely recognizable interpretation of Talking Heads "The Overload" pushes beyond the bush of ghosts into a fourth world dread-zone of stalking drum-machine rhythms, humid electronics, and jagged guitar phrasing, while "Where Flamingos Fly" reroutes the Gil Evans Orchestras classic rendition through the seamiest back-streets of the 13th arrondissement; there, as on the trios reading of "Kinder Lieder," the mood is romantic, but stark, isolationist: imagine Chet Baker falling through the glacial sound-world of early PiL or Scott Walkers Climate of Hunter. Originals include the agitated Iberian psychedelia of "Spain," and "Panic in Bali," which begins in seemingly trad-jazz fashion only to swell into a cacophony of a gurgling electronics and fevered "Lonely Woman" quotations. "Solaris" is a swirling, suspenseful arabesque of whiplash guitars and Black Ark FX, Berrocals trumpet hitting deep blue notes while his vocals are sliced and diced and tossed into a yawning void of tape-delay -- like Antigravity at large, the result is oblique, dissolving, forever out of reach. Despite the chilly, sometimes austere mood of the album, it is, ultimately, a deeply human and welcoming work, with a playfulness and sly humor pervading; see the anarchic cross-hatch of "Ife Layo," or the CD-only track "Lessai des Suintes ou le bal des Futaies," Berrocals poetic disquisition on the infinite variety of female genitalia. Mischief and misdirection are rife here, and fans of Officer!, Henry Cow, and the ReR axis will find much to chew on. Play, as we know, is serious business. Put another way, and to quote Berrocal entirely out of context, Antigravity is completely crazy, completely timeless, completely out. As its title suggests, the objective is nothing less than lift-off, weightlessness, a total unshackling from earth. Sunglasses on, collar up, lets go." - Blackest Ever Black.

Country: France
Price: $25.00
Edition of 300. “In order to create this sound system, I used the conduction of psychomotor pulses merging it with neurosis signals circulating within the hypertrophic experimentation to get a plant immune-sensitive, so that the metabolism of rumoristic environment  emerges with the syndrome dissonant electronics, and the result was NEURO HABITAT.” - Maurizio Bianchi, 2013.

Title: Persecutionem
Format: LP
Label: Rotorelief
Country: France
Price: $25.00
Edition of 250. "Ive taken inspiration for this medicative work from the sordid persecution of the early Christians, but in other ways we receive objectivistic persecution every day from this standardized system, from our wretched condition and from the modern persecutors which are hidden behind their threatening countenances. The appropriate soundtrack of such perturbed sufferings is this justifiable work, «Persecutionem», in which the semblances of our gaolers are inherents on these obstructed sounds, and the hopeful liberation of our existences are culminating on the eschatologic modulations. The deliberate epilogue is contained in the derogatory elevation of our reinstated spirituality for a repulsive capital sentence in order to transform the alienated persecutor into an inalienable victim of persecution." - Maurizio Bianchi - February 2009.

Artist: BIANCHI, MAURIZIO
Title: Weltanschauung
Format: LP
Label: Rotorelief
Country: France
Price: $25.00
Edition of 444. “At the beginning of 1981 Maurizio Bianchi sent some demo tapes to the Come Organisation in England; after that, they extracted and blended together the sounds to get the final work. The title « Under The Victory Banner », an anachronistic and detrimental track for the rest of the album has been replaced by the title of the same set « Plutoniumetrio » edited in 1982 by the Come Organisation for the compilation « Fe Koch », which fits much better with the other tracks. 



The Come Organisation was a record label founded in London in 1979 by William Bennett, initially as a vehicle for his group Come, and later to specialise in extreme electronic or controversial music, in particular for his subsequent group Whitehouse, but also for other groups including Maurizio Bianchi, Nurse with wound or Charles Manson. When Whitehouse went on hiatus at the end of 1985, Come Organisation was dissolved.” - Rotorelief.

Price: $29.00
"A mysterious 1981 cassette masterpiece from Narki Brillans from the Its War Boys catalogue available now on LP. Remastered from the original tapes by Narki himself! Track listing: Worship Worship USA; Omnicode; Atom making a bomb; Fascist tea party; Dave got a job in the garage; Postcard from Space; Saw a great disc land; Ive got US dollars. There are more than half a million pieces of space junk floating above the earth, and of all of them, theres only one or two that Id rescue for the benefit of the human race. You know, when you think of all those dreadful Time Capsules and other vainglorious and redundant trivia - if you are someone of a discerning mind, one eye on the eternal fastnesses of our mighty Galaxy (only a suburb really, which is surely what makes David Bowies Space Oddity so very effecting for those of us born in the petit bourgeois utopia of the post-war world), the other on the profoundly mysterious internal life of the individual, the essentially irrelevant nonentity which our so-called culture has puffed up and reshaped with the vision of an expert sculptor into the soi-disant Self -- well then, if you are of such a mind, well then I say its my firmly held belief (one which I will carry to my grave, which I hope may be out there in Space, with Bowie and Meeks masterpieces alternating with a selection of out takes from the television series Lost In Space starring the immortal Jonathan Harris -- Spare me the compliments, Major!) that the only object really worth a candle among the essentially infinite objects floating in the upper atmosphere is that recording made by Narki Brillans which, if everyone in the chain does what they said theyll do and if my predictions for our future are correct, the reader of this transcript will soon hold in their hands. Four color sleeve with original primitive-futuristic-cosmic collages by Studio Shitless.

Artist: BRINKMANN, THOMAS
Title: What You Hear (Is What You Hear)
Format: Dbl LP
Label: Editions Mego
Country: Austria
Price: $31.00
"Thomas Brinkmann is renowned for audio works that hover among forms such as techno, minimalism, and ambient. Alongside such pioneering works as Klick (2000), Studio 1 - Variationen (1997), and 2012s duo with Oren Ambarchi, The Mortimer Trap (BT 006CD), with What You Hear (Is What You Hear) Brinkmann moves further to separate his art, not only from descriptive musical terms that oppress creative output, but also from the notion of an author in the act of creation. The 11 tracks on display form a series of self-perpetuating rhythms that exist more as sound structures than as any kind of traditional sound forms. Any associations, emotions, and reactions are purely in the reasoning of the listener as the artist makes a strong and deliberate move away from intent. This is a strident development in the conceptual thinking of Brinkmanns solid career, one that places the listener simultaneously inside and outside objective parameters. Dedicated to Zbigniew Karwkowski. Design by Stephen OMalley. Gatefold double LP." - Editions Mego.

Artist: BURCHETTE, MASTER WILBURN
Title: Opens the Seven Gates of Transcendental Consciousness
Format: LP
Label: Fifth Dimension
Country: Germany
Price: $24.00
"First reissue of this stunning, dark, mysterious instrumental 1972 work by Wilburn Burchette, mystery of 1970s experimental guitar music. In place of regular songs there are several layers of chord and melody patterns shifted upon each other, performed on a semi-distorted electric guitar with a strong echo effect. A few other instruments may have been used as well, but its also possible that there are only electric guitars on this album. Even the oscillating buzz of "Transformation" could easily be created with a guitar and a few effect machines. Halfway through the tune the music knocks over into some very bright and jubilant guitar melody structures. The album as a whole has a krautish vibe, due to the repetitive layer-upon-layer structure of the compositions. It has an ethnic folk edge due to the use of Spanish and eastern folk harmonies. Burchette intended to create spiritual music to expands the listeners mind in a positive way, and bring the soul and body into a state of enlightenment. Global folk music surely had an influence on this guitar masterpiece, and even though there are many mood changes, from the obscure lairs of the ancient druids to the light-filled Celtic springtime ceremonies, this record really lifts the spirit and cleanses all stress, anger, and pain from it. Although it was not created in Germany, this album could be a typical experimental and even cosmic release of the krautrock scene from its era. The years from 1970 to 1974 saw quite a few similar releases. The closing track, "Realization," in particular, is a beautiful example of cosmic guitar music as it was produced only in that short period of time. It begins with some whistling fizzling buzz and then changes to a calm and mystical chord structure with strange echoes and spooky howls in the background. "Realization" slowly develops into a maelstrom that drags the listener into a musical black hole. Not as wild and heavy as the early Ash Ra Tempel albums, this piece could easily be a composition of guitar legend Manuel Göttsching. For fans of blues- and folk-based yet utterly freaked-out and dirty echo guitar music and cosmic sounds such as A.R. & Machines, early Tangerine Dream, early Kraftwerk, the aforementioned Ash Ra Tempel, Walter Wegmüller, or Gulââb." - Fifth Dimension.

At time of its release, Connors was still an inscrutable guitarist whose matchless and alien rendering of the blues was just gaining recognition despite more than a dozen solo and collaborative releases since 1978. Connors classic, song-based In Pittsburgh had only been available for three months when Blues welcomed the new decade with its reformation of the blues as minimalist lines and tone; a compound of influences spanning Louisiana guitarist Robert Pete Williams to painter Mark Rothko.
"Moving with the slow, stately weirdom we expect of Connors late 80s sound, the music is all shards, all pokes in the eye, as though Rothkos gray scale had exploded, sending shrapnelized paint rocketing through your brain," music historian Byron Coley writes in the liner notes of this reissue. "Just as Connors notes ricochet hauntedly through its recesses."
For this reissue, engineer Taylor Deupree restored the audio to Connors" specifications of how these seven instrumentals were intended to sound. Cover art is an untitled 1969 Rothko work -- a painting that influenced the album. The original LP jacket is replicated as a glossy inner sleeve. New liner notes by Coley chart Connors development and the influence Rothko had on him as a guitarist. Pressed on pristine 150-gram vinyl by Quality Record Pressing in an 800 edition; includes download coupon." - Family Vineyard.

Title: Bring Us Some Honest Food
Format: LP
Label: Dancing Wayang
Country: UK
Price: $23.00
"Pressed on 180-gram vinyl; housed in Dancing Wayangs customary hand-screenprinted wrap-around sleeve featuring a bold potato-print design by the labels own Anna Tjan. Exclusive liner notes courtesy of Tom Recchion (Smegma, Los Angeles Free Music Society). Dancing Wayang is thrilled to release Bring Us Some Honest Food, a collaboration between Argentine guitarist and multi-instrumentalist Alan Courtis and Brooklyn-based British drummer Aaron Moore. Recorded at Londons Fish Factory Studio in 2014, it sees both musicians explore sounds and instruments far beyond their regular guitar and drums setups, utilizing anything from grand piano and balafon to metal lampshades and wooden staircases. Courtis (formerly Anla Courtis) co-founded Argentine power trio Reynols, and has collaborated and performed with Kawabata Makoto, Oren Ambarchi, Lasse Marhaug, and many more; Moore has détourned music most regularly as part of Volcano the Bear, who came to attention in the late 1990s through their imaginative live performances and recorded output. Bring Us Some Honest Food merges and develops the postal collaboration techniques of their previous releases; this is music created in real time, face-to-face in London, then layered and collaged afterward by (digital) post across continents to produce the intricate découpage effect heard here. It is a disorienting experience to listen deeply to this music. These lengthy pieces sound densely structured and composed with the precision of a Glenn Gould tape edit, but with a seat-of-yr-pants improv feel that brings the threat of collapse and chaos. In that sense it echoes krautrock pioneers going crazy with tape and razor blades decades ago, with a similarly kosmische expansiveness, but filtered through a wealth of avant knowledge and praxis. In short, neither salon nor sweat-pit, though informed by both. Bring Us Some Honest Food is all noir and shadow. The slammed piano chords of "Portions of Honesty" are repeated maddeningly, feeling like the shadow of Nosferatu creeping up the stairs. The muted trumpet of "Dishonest Dessert" accrues portentousness over 20 minutes, echoing the ever-more-insistent piano. Throughout the album sounds drift in and out, from foreground to background, cut off, backwards. Vocals are muffled, distorted; recognizable sounds redacted. The listeners ears skitter across the stereo envelope like an extra-wired sentry on guard duty. This is an involving, demanding, rewarding, and immersive album. Chance encounters are mercifully all around us but while all are welcome few are as serendipitous as this bizarre and blessed encounter of Brooklyn and Buenos Aires, and now London." - Dancing Wayang.

Title: Vegas Fountain

Country: UK
Price: $25.00
"Copenhagen-based industrial duo Damien Dubrovnik (aka Posh Isolation founders Loke Rahbek and Christian Stadsgaard) follow up 2013s First Burning Attraction (ALT 008LP) with Vegas Fountain. Rahbek and Stadsgaard have continued to be consistently busy as label bosses but even more so as artists, performing more frequently worldwide and building a reputation for their fierce and powerful live show. They have also continued to hone their craft in the studio and found a working rhythm in which their live performance feeds into the studio work and vice versa. 2014s Patterns of Penetration 7" (ALT 701EP) was a teaser for this developing practice, but it arrives here full-force with Vegas Fountain, Damien Dubrovniks strongest work yet. In the first couple of minutes of opening track "On Its Double," you get a sense that things have moved forward artistically in Rahbek and Stadsgaards world. The clear production breathes a subtlety into some of the sonics here that perhaps wasnt revealed through the murk on previous records, heightening a tension that at some points breaks and dissolves into something almost melancholic -- evoked by the reflective landscapes of "Interior 2: See Water Glass" and "Interior 3: Matching Window Blinds." The attack remains however, with the punctuating saw-toothed bass notes and screaming tones of "Interior 1: Upper Lip" (considered "problematic" to cut by the mastering engineer), and the finale of the title-track, which has all the drama and explosive euphoria of their live show. Vegas Fountain is co-released by Alter and Posh Isolation." - Alter/Posh Isolation.

"Limited 2015 repress, regular printed sleeve this time. This release will undoubtedly be met by the same deep breaths that have been shared by the small group of collectors who, over the past few years, have held original copies of this rare Folkways release in such high regard. In simple terms this LP is the kind of record you wished existed while nothing really came close to the mark. Respectfully and subtly combining traditional Persian instrumentation, modular synth exercises, field recordings and tape manipulation -- this debut release from 1985 by Dariush Dolat-Shahi bridges multiple cultural and stylistic voids and vindicates the vinyl-buying markets disparate interests in bygone Eastern experimental rock music, radio-phonic experiments, musique-concrete, sound design, neo-tantric meditational records and other early accidental acidic electro murmurs. For those who enjoyed the re-contextualized music of Ilaiyaraaja and Charanjit Singh while holding tight to the legacy of Pierre Schaeffer, Daphne Oram, Ilhan Mimaroglu, and harbor penchants for all things drone, Teutonic, electronic, demonic, and euphoric, this record has just changed all your plans for the weekend. A perfect primer for the aforementioned labels and a proud indication of what to expect from this eternally studious camp in 2013. Cut at Dubplates & Mastering." - Dead-Cert.

Artist: DREYBLATT, ARNOLD
Title: Nodal Excitation
Format: LP
Label: Drag City
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"By the late 80s most of the burgeoning minimal underground had been forgotten, especially one amazing character, Arnold Dreyblatt. Dreyblatt only had one record, Nodal Excitation (on the mostly post-AACM jazz label India Navigation), before he packed and moved to Berlin, where he concentrated on his other activities, making only two more records over the next 10 years. But for those who caught the action, Arnold was the man. He was more rock that any of the others combined, and he was also the only one to really tap into that massive proto-minimal sound that Conrad had squelched out of his tin-contact mic violin in the early 60s. Indeed, in the early 70s after being in school in Buffalo, where Conrad taught, Dreyblatt moved into Manhattan to work for Young, where he witnessed first-hand, and listened first-ear to those legendary recordings of the Theatre of Eternal Music. He got interested in long string sounds, and bought a bass that he wired with piano wire. By hitting the strings instead of bowing them, Dreyblatt was able to get those ringing overtones, but he also had added something new: pure rhythm. Dreyblatt couldnt get the rock singles hed grown up with out of him, and couldnt become the full-on new-music man that seemed to be a requirement in the 70s, and it wasnt until the 80s that the fence could be straddled, if not knocked over. It was time to start a band. In 1998, dexters cigar were on the scene, excavating the valuable stuff from that semi-recent past for Nodal Excitations first-ever appearance on CD. It brought it into a lot of new ears -- but times have changed and so have the ears. So what you have here is the first ever LP reissue of Arnold Dreyblatts freshman record, a slice of minimal history that is STILL as potent now, if not more, as it was in 98 and 81 before it. It was a lighthouse that was aiming the wrong way when the tugboat came by, but now its shining right in your face." - Drag City.

Title: Kitchen
Format: LP
Label: Bocian
Country: Poland
Price: $20.00
Edition of 350. “Kevin Drumm is a musician not only known as a one-man-orchestra exploring the boundaries of music, but also a star under the banner of inestimable Bocian Records label. This time we were granted with access to his kitchen. The LP is limited to 34 minutes, consisting of 2 pieces, originally recorded in 1996 yet fully remastered in 2012.
Side one piece slowly opens a kitchen door. Smooth, equilibrious and loopy sound fractions that surpass those requirements ambient music is bound to meet. First, a violin plays alongside a Carmen accordion, treated with surprising effects, of which the original sound is not to be easily discovered.
The otherside composition leads the listener from the kitchen straight to the slaughterhouse. Incomparably louder and uncompromising; too refined for an industrial-related noise piece, but again overweighing any experimental canon that might be followed. Enjoy the kitchen experience.” - Iwona Palka

Title: The Peregrine
Format: LP
Label: Room40
Country: Australia
Price: $24.00
"Room40 presents a reissue of Australian sound artist Lawrence Englishs acclaimed 2011 album The Peregrine, inspired by John Alec Bakers 1967 nature writing classic of the same name."- Room40.
"I first discovered The Peregrine when I was visiting my friend David Toop in London. He had the book on his desk and I picked it up and randomly turned to a page. It was an exquisite description of an Owl silently hunting. I was struck by the detail and evocative sense of listening in the writing. It was as though I was there experiencing that moment through the authors ears. I turned to another page and before I finished that paragraph I was sold. I ordered The Peregrine and was reading it avidly days later. Since that time I have spent a good deal of time with that book and J.A. Bakers only other text The Hill of Summer. Ive purchased in excess of 100 copies of The Peregrine, gifting them to fellow musicians and artists who visit and occasionally sending them to people who I felt might relish the book. Most infamously I suppose is my sending the book to Werner Herzog, who I was introduced to by my friend Douglas Quin. Herzog loved the book and now includes it as essential reading in his film school. For me, The Peregrine captures a very special turning point in the 20th century. It marks a recognition of the role humans play in shaping their environment. Without ever addressing the topic directly, Bakers misanthropic, almost nihilistic reading of modern life pinpoints many issues that have come to a head in contemporary society. For a character we never learn very much about, Bakers voyeur of the falcons is a surprisingly engaging figure. As the reader we become him, we live through his textual renderings of time and place. Ultimately, through this ghost of a character, we become the bird in what Herzog so perfectly called a quasi-religious transubstantiation -- reader into author into bird. This book changed my life. So much so that I felt it necessary to make a record about it and find some small way to respond to what is, in my opinion, one of the finest literary outings of the 20th century. I hope you can find some space in which to experience both the book and this record." --Lawrence English, January 2015.

Price: $6.00
"THE FUCKIN FLYIN A-HEADS were a band from Hawaii most commonly construed as "punk", tho they might provide one of the more exciting links between a more typified conception of "punk", and that of "noise". If the A-side of this hybrid genre is the final aggregate regimented elements of deconstructed hard core that Harry Pussy by way of Magic Band displayed, the flip is the excess of Experience inspired freedom and recklessly abandons anything that even vaguely resemble "form". Perhaps the most radically mixed recording, ever (to the extent that you might wonder if they just fucked up, or were working with a broken machine). A completely astounding spin. Their first review is a riot : from Damage Magazine, DEC 1980: White noise this pure must take lots of to work to perfect. Somewhere far away there is a 60s endless guitar solo, bass playing 2 notes, a cymbal being hit at a constant 2 / 4 beat, and a distorted voice talking. But mostly there is white noise, simultaneously complex and simple. Its quite disturbing when cranked up. I like to play this record and watch TV. It instantly gives a surreal sense to the most mundane images. Not recommended for anyone with high blood pressure. -- M.C. Parker" - Destijl. Very highly recommended!

"Tone Loc" is a heavy Geenafied future classic, with signature celestial pan pipes and a deeper-than-deep bassline. "Minus Jam" is on a similar path of ecstatic disorientation, with spinning, delayed glass toms supervised by the darkest dictatorial bassline. "Box of Exotica" evokes a dreamy post-Blade Runner musical world of traditional and futuristic collision augmented with beautiful and equally dark Japanese stick music vocals. "Green Resident" also walks the cosmic path, softer at first, before the silky darkness seeps in." - Antinote.

Title: Visitations
Format: LP
Label: Superior Viaduct
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"Since the mid-1960s, Jon Gibson has played a key role in the development of American avant-garde music. No other artist has performed in the world premieres of Terry Rileys In C, Steve Reichs Drumming, and Philip Glasss Einstein on the Beach, three major works that changed the course of musical history. While his expertise on woodwind instruments made Gibson a go-to collaborator in Reichs, Glasss, and La Monte Youngs ensembles, less known are his remarkable contributions as a composer and visual artist. Visitations, Gibsons first release under his own name, originally appeared on the Chatham Square imprint in 1973. Inspired by the books of Carlos Castaneda, Gibson departs from the structured repetition of his minimalist peers and takes the listener on an aural journey -- spanning organic field recordings, ambient flutes and synthesizers, and free-flowing textures. Visitations two side-long tracks are at once solemn and unsettling, making this an astonishing debut that firmly establishes Gibson as a pioneer in his own right. This first-time vinyl reissue is recommended for fans of Cluster, Harold Budd, and Phill Niblock." - Superior Viaduct.

“Originally released in 1978 in Japan, this album is a soundtrack to a Bollywood film. It features a tapestry of weird floating electronic grooves parsed within menacing rants of jungle birds and night sounds. Fans of Ash Ra Tepels guitarist, Manuel Goetschings “E2-E4”, Cluster, Achim Reichel & The Machines, or even Aphex Twin, will be in heaven with this electronic psychedelic trip of sounds and colours. Way ahead of its time, this is a magical treat from beginning to end. Cover artwork is by no other than Tadanori Yokoo (Often referred to as the Japanese Andy Warhol). Limited to 500 copies on vinyl.” - North Korea.

“Cochin Moon (コチンの月 Kochin no Tsuki) is Haruomi Hosonos fifth solo album. Initially intended as a collaboration with illustrator Tadanori Yokoo, who traveled to India alongside Hosono (as part of a group) for inspiration; Yokoo ended up only drawing the cover, having been the worst victim of an outburst of severe diarrhea amongst the group during the trip, rendering this as a Hosono solo album. Cochin Moon was conceptually written as the soundtrack of a non-existent Bollywood film, a trait inspired by the artists trip. The album includes performances by Tin Pan Alley keyboardist Hiroshi Satō and Yellow Magic Orchestra members Ryuichi Sakamoto& Hideki Matsutake. Despite being Hosonos first completely electronic solo album (at the time YMOs debut was still being recorded, making this Hosonos first electronic album to be released), the exotica feel of Hosonos previous solo work is still present. The first half of the album (named after an Indian hotel that the group was in for the trip, a picture of the hotels front appears in the back of the albums packaging) consists of three thematically themed songs, the second half of the album (and Hosonos keyboard performance) is credited to "Shuka Nishihara"(西原朱夏?), a pseudonym Hosono created as a play on Hakushū Kitaharas pseudonym.” - Wikipedia.

For those familiar with his prior limited edition and self-released cdrs, this one picks up right where Trials and Mountainous left off and continues to refine the unique style of harsh crunch and spooked ambience. For the uninitiated, HOTDs sound has been likened to being caught under an avalanche of grit. The wall of earth rumbles in from the distance, getting closer, a huge rush of wind before you are overtaken by half a mountainside of rock, dirt, stick. The sound surrounds and pounds. Finally, when left trapped under eight feet of crud, the chaos of the slide gives way to the sound of only lungs fighting for breath, mind drifting towards the light. No ones coming to help. This album is released in an edition of 291 copies on black vinyl. The pasted-on textured cardstock LP jacket and album insert both feature the intense artwork of Mr. Stonefelt himself." - SNSE.

Format: LP

Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"During some brief encounters in 1981 behind the counter at Full Moon Records in Port Huron, Michigan, record store clerk (and member of local “industrial” band Hate/Grey) Lon Diehl started receiving tapes of self-made amp-noise, feedback and field recordings adorned with disturbing medical images entitled “Screw Machine” from regular customer Richard Skott. Instantly, Diehl and Skott struck up a friendship over their appreciation of Throbbing Gristle, SPK and Dome. During this time, Diehl was producing the music fanzine “Smarm”, but due to the sudden change of artistic direction and collaboration, both Diehl and Skott started a new imprint which would become the legendary S/M Operations, home to their new experimental/ industrial project Hunting Lodge.
Hunting Lodges initial foray into musical performance during the Summer of 1982 involved both members to enlist the assistance of Karl Nordstrom, while Nordstroms brother Thomas aided the band in their visual art realizations. Soon after, Hunting Lodge played their first show on September 9, 1982 at the now infamous Harrington Ballroom in Port Huron which was released as a private edition cassette that same year. After this performance, Hunting Lodge recorded their much-coveted “23 Minutes of Murder” cassette, though soon thereafter Karl Nordstrom left the band, leaving the line up to consist of the original core two members.
Upon the request of Andreas Muller of the German label Datenverarbeitung to record extra material for the Exhumed cassette, Hunting Lodge started to regularly record material and in the coming months would pull together tracks that would become their first full-length album entitled “Will”. Drawing references from Crowley, Nietzsche and G. Gordon Liddy, Hunting Lodge collaged together industrial percussion patterns, live recordings, early sketches and synthesized noise into nine compositions which also included vocal appearances by Andreas Muller, Francisco Lopez and Masami Akita a.k.a. Merzbow. The final product would serve as a blueprint for later generations of industrial noise music and plant the influential seed for the years later Michigan noise output.
Dais Records is proud to release the official vinyl reissue of Hunting Lodge “”Will”. Fully remastered to its original sonic standards by Michael Rozon." - Dais.

"Mastered from the original tapes, this is the never-before-released 1983 album by a minimalist electro-wave band from Arizona, combining cold, distantly chanted vocals and Casiotone synths with a bombastic rock rhythm section. Compared in their day to acts as diverse as JOY DIVISION, YOUNG MARBLE GIANTS, WALL OF VOODOO, and SUBURBAN LAWNS, the band didnt actually sound that much like any of them, instead working out their own wistful, spacy sound of toylike keyboards, plus bass, drums and spoken stream-of-consciousness vocals. The two founding members, Timothy Gassen and Debra Dickey, eventually went on to found the very long-running garage-psych band MARSHMALLOW OVERCOAT.

"Philip Johnson, a lost figure in the dark waters of early industrial music, self-released over 25 tapes starting in the late 70s. As a part of the “cassette culture” in the UK, he produced ethereal soundscapes, damaged electronics, and undanceable drum patterns, along with homemade j-cards. For his first and only LP, 1982s Youth in Mourning, Johnson further refined his approach with mesmerizing audio collages and Mark-E-Smith-ian vocals to make one of the most unique documents of the era. The song “C81,” commenting on NMEs compilation of the same name, expresses contempt with know-it-all indie culture that was similarly reflected 20 years later in LCD Soundsystems “Losing My Edge.” Fans of the degenerate tale in The Velvet Undergrounds “The Gift” will appreciate Johnsons “The Karate Kicking Girl of New Invention.” Youth in Mourning is a personal record, yet fearless. It pulls back the bedroom curtain, revealing (as Johnson writes in the liner notes) “the sound of a warm-air heater on a cold afternoon and a cassette being pushed into the deck and switched on.” This first-time reissue comes from the original master tapes. Recommended for fans of Cabaret Voltaire, John Bender, and The Shadow Ring." - Superior Viaduct.

Title: Open Like a Flute
Format: Double LP
Label: Black Sweat
Country: Italy
Price: $37.00
“Originally composed between 1981 and 1984 and initially appeared only on tape in two different editions, the proposed material from Ariel Kalmafor this work confirms his pantheistic vision of the ethnic sound that had already emerged in 1978 with the masterpiece Osmose (BS 007LP). The deep consciousness of the compositional techniques of Indian ragas is mixed here with embroidered electronic textures on which flute and sax explore the most secret archetypal elements of nature. In this way Kalma offers to the listener a personal idea of sacred music with luminous and oneiric tones but always dialoguing with a higher cosmic conception of things. With a clever use of effects, harmonium, delays and exotic percussions, Kalma becomes the creator of soundscapes from the endless myriad shades. Such a fusion of Western avant-garde and eastern tradition approaches other big names of the international panorama such as Popol Vuh, Angus MacLise or László Hortobágyi. The master comes from the original 1/4 analog tape from the 80s. Limited edition of 300 copies in a gatefold cover with info.” - Black Sweat.

"Double LP version in deluxe Stoughton gatefold "tip-on" jacket; includes download code. "First ever vinyl reissue. 30th anniversary edition expanded to a double LP housed in a deluxe Stoughton gatefold tip-on jacket. 24bit/96kHz remaster from the original tapes. Essay by Sam Sweet interviewing both David and Eric, including unseen archive photos. Includes download card for full album. Youll find a Suicide Bridge in almost any big city you care to visit, but few are more impressive than the Colorado Street Bridge connecting Pasadena to Los Angeles, which earned its nickname by being the scene of suicides in triple figures. Its also the scene of a photo shoot in which singer-songwriters Eric Caboor and David Kauffman posed on the deserted structure, capturing an image that would eventually inform the spare, detached mood -- and title -- of their majestic debut album, 1984s Songs From Suicide Bridge. Indeed, theres a fatalistic quality to this LP that has much to do with its origins. Home-recorded on a four-track, Songs From Suicide Bridge was released on the pairs own Donkey Soul Music in 1984. If this were a movie, the album would have been a huge success. Instead, the 500 copies pressed found their way to few willing ears. Though real life encroached, Caboor and Kaufmann continued to work together, releasing albums as The Drovers in 1989 and 1992. Now, their debut is to be released by Light In The Attic Records with brand new liner notes by Sam Sweet. Hopefully, it will finally find its audience -- a listener who can see hope in the darkness. People would tell us those songs were depressing, Caboor says in his interview with Sweet, but it wasnt depressing to us. In a lot of cases, playing those songs in that little room was one of the only things that made us feel better." - Modern Classics.

Title: Nommos
Format: CD
Label: Superior Viaduct
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
2014 release. "First appearing incongruously on John Faheys Takoma label in 1981, Nommos remains enshrouded in impenetrable mystery--from its understated artwork to the rich assemblage of analog synths contained inside. Best known as a producer, Craig Leon worked on landmark debuts from Suicide, Richard Hell, The Ramones and Blondie. Rather than ape the early NYC punk that he helped foster, Leons own music is filled with lush textures and pulsating rhythm boxes. Comparisons can be made to German innovators such as Cluster and La Dusseldorf, yetNommos is an unbalanced cosmos marked by anxious melodies, aggressive shifts and spiritual overtones. The name “Nommos” itself refers to mythical deities worshipped by tribes in West Africa. Some scholars have argued that the myth has extraterrestrial roots. While these are significant details for understanding the albums peculiar meditative qualities, there was little context for these sounds upon their initial release. Even today, in the cold light of the early 21st century, Leon sounds fiercely contemporary. This first-time CD release is mastered from the original analog tapes." - Superior Viaduct.

"Norbert Mng, cracked everyday-electronics. Recorded live at Espace Multimedia Gantner, Bourogne, August 22, 2010 by Remy Bux. During the work for Voice Crack duo Norbert Mng was one of the pioneers in the field of sound installation techniques usage in live improvised music. His instruments are cracked everyday-electronics, but sounds themselves are delivered from the mechanical properties of these devices. This kind of approach seems to be similar to Peter Fischli and David Weiss practices in the visual arts fields. The comparison of the film documentaries "The Way Things Go" (1987) about Fischli / Weiss activities and "Kick that habit" (1989) about Voice Crack is quite correct. In the beginnings the Voice Crack sound works were conjured with post-industrial and noise practices of Borbetomagus or Hijokaidan, but in the end it resulted in the rise of XXI century free-improv and EAI movement. Nmperign duo, Jer�Noetinger, Lionel Marchetti, eRikm, Andrea Neumann, Jason Kahn, Cor Fuhler, etc. Moslang was cooperating with most of these sound artists. After the Voice Crack finished all activities, Mng continued his sound explorations in the field of cracked everyday-electronics. His recordings started to be vivid and colorful, focused more on subtle and precise movements and thrills of the objects.
"fuzz_galopp" is a composition of amplified pulsating sounds of cracked everyday-electronics. But the rhythm is a primal foundation of the sound texture. The similar approach was recently used by Pete Swanson and Neil Campbell, however Norbert Mng managed without sampler and drum machine. The whole recording is based on mechanic objects sounds only. On the other hand his music differs from Pierre Bastiens thanks to dense sounds and powerful dynamics. The pure pleasure of galloping fuzz experience!” - Daniel Brozek.

"The images were shot in New York between 2001 and 2002. It was during the time when we were still in shock from 9.11. The stars and stripes suddenly became visible everywhere in the city. Soon after, the invasion of Afghanistan started. Everybody was living under an indefinable fear -- not knowing what would happen in the future" --Aki Onda. Lost City started as a series of photographs shot by visual artist and composer Aki Onda in New York right after September 11, 2001. A decisively introspective response to a major world event, his pictures were devoid of direct references, but documented his immediate surroundings, focusing on how what happened resonated on a personal micro-level. Since 2005, Onda has been presenting this series as slide projections, which function as a visual score for improvisation, and performing with NYC avant-garde musicians Loren Connors and Alan Licht. The two improvisations on this LP were recorded at Anthology Film Archives in NYC in 2007. Lost City contains the vinyl, a folded 20 x 30 inch poster with the complete photograph series, and an A4 risoprinted booklet containing the accompanying text written by NYC-based curator/writer Niels van Tomme. The records A-side is a duo piece between Connors and Licht that consists of wandering, buzzing guitar drones with occasional noisy eruptions. It highlights the almost twin-like connection between the longtime collaborators, with telepathic intersecting guitar lines and a sense of unease seeping through. The B-side is Connorss lyrical, atmospheric solo performance, equally sparse and spacious. Limited to 350 copies." - Audiomer.

Title: New Mexico
Format: Double LP
Label: Minimal Wave
Country: USA
Price: $31.00
"Minimal Wave proudly presents a newly remastered deluxe double album of archival material by pioneering 80s minimal electronic duo Oppenheimer Analysis. Oppenheimer Analysis was formed in London, England, in 1982 by Andy Oppenheimer and Martin Lloyd. Their first meeting though was at the 1979 World Science Fiction Convention in Brighton. They quickly became good friends, sharing an interest in the work of David Bowie, electronic music, and early synthesizer bands such as the Human League and Soft Cell. They also shared a love of old science fiction movies and 1950s graphics and comic book imagery, and a fascination with post-World War II propaganda, the politics and aesthetics of the Cold War, and the social impact of the atomic bomb. Over the next few years Andy and Martin frequented the growing club scene, including Studio 21 on Oxford Street, and became involved in the developing Futurist and New Romantic style sub-cultures. During this period Martin recorded as Analysis, both alone and with David Rome of Drinking Electricity. They released their first single, Surface Tension/Connections on Davids Survival label in 1981. In 1982, Oppenheimer Analysis began writing and recording together at Feedback Studio in Battersea, and performed several times at The Bell, Islington, the 1983 World David Bowie Convention in Hammersmith, the Starzone Birthday Party at Camden Palace, the 1984 European Science Fiction Convention in Brighton, and other live venues. Their first demo tape and 12-song New Mexico cassette were sold at gigs and by mail-order, and were reviewed in Melody Maker, Sounds, and Soundmaker. For the years to follow, Oppenheimer Analysis became recognized among electro-music aficionados as a pioneering duo that influenced countless other bands during the club and home-recording era of the early 1980s and beyond. Their cassettes became massively collectible. In 2005 they re-formed with the release of a self-titled four-song 12" EP of selections from the New Mexico cassette, including Cold War and The Devils Dancers. This marked the first release on Minimal Wave. Now in 2015, were happy to present the entire New Mexico collection, newly remastered and cut to vinyl for the first time ever, to celebrate our 10-year anniversary. This first edition of 1000 copies is pressed on deluxe nuclear style black-and-white 160-gram vinyl and housed in a glossy gatefold silver-and-black printed sleeve, featuring all the song lyrics on the inside of the sleeve." - Minimal Wave.

Title: Imaginary Choreography
Format: LP
Label: Antinote
Country: France
Price: $19.00
"Previously unreleased guitar-and-synth musical jewel from Italy circa 1984. An until-now unknown collaboration between a guitar maestro who composed contemporary dance scores and a gifted electronic music composer. Melodic complexity and rhythmic sonic beauty create a unique and timeless classic that has already achieved cult status among the few who have heard it. Obvious comparisons can be made between Imaginary Choreography and the softer ambient side of vintage German electronic music -- Göttsching, Schnitzler, Cluster, etc., but that would be too easy, as this recording stands alone with its uniquely Italian atmosphere of sophisticated and complex simplicity. This session was recorded by two Venetians: Paki Zennaro (then working with composer René Aubry for choreographer Carolyn Carlson) and Gianni Visnadi (an experimental composer), who met one evening over a glass of wine and decided to work together for the first time with the intention of recording contemporary music to be used by dance schools for study and exercise. The duo recorded on reel-to-reel tape using electronic equipment (Sequential Circuits Pro One and Prophet 5; Roland TR-808 and guitar synth) with an acoustic 12-string guitar. When finished and mixed, a few BASF LH extra cassette copies (maybe as few as six or eight) were sent out to a few friends with a homemade photocopy insert, complete with handwritten track names and production details. A chance find in a Paris market of one of these original demo cassettes led to this wonderful LP finally seeing its first release. This now famous BASF tape was found one lucky morning by Johanna Heather Anselmo (filmmaker, photographer, musician) while searching for musical surprises in a box of tapes that had probably been at that same flea market for 20 years or more. Mademoiselle Johanna is used to rummaging in boxes of dusty tapes, being the girlfriend of Antinote artist Iueke, who has the unusual habit of hiding tapes all over their flat. A bit of searching by Iueke lead him to finding contact information for Zennaro and Visnadi, who were happy to oblige with releasing this almost forgotten 1984 session. Master tapes were sent to Paris for immediate transfer and mastering, while the Check Morris graphic design team worked with its usual class on adapting and reworking the cassette tape artwork for a vinyl issue. Open a bottle of wine and sit back. Includes download code." - Antinote.

"Named after San Francisco Chronicles pink-hued arts and entertainment guide, Pink Section coalesced at SF Art Institute and performed their first show at the legendary Deaf Club on Valentines Day, 1979. These self-taught musicians existed on the fringe (even in the local underground scene), producing an unusual brand of off-kilter post-punk against a backdrop of Dadaist aesthetics. The group itself was strangely symmetrical: singer Judy Gittelsohn and drummer Carol Detweiler (both members of Inflatable Boy Clams), singer/guitarist Matt Heckert (Survival Research Laboratories) and bassist Stephen Wymore. While the hallucinatory layers of male/female vocals on "Shopping" conjure images of deranged domesticity and 50s Americana gone haywire, the fractured riffs of "Midsummer New York" deconstruct Yoko Onos original even further, stripping bare Pink Sections fondness for angular rhythms and out-of-control oscillations.

"In the late 60s, Pip Proud recorded two of the oddest records ever to come out of Australia -- Adreneline & Richard and A Bird in the Engine -- before vanishing into obscurity for the better part of three decades. Often called the Australian Syd Barrett, Proud actually released his second album in 1969, a year prior to The Madcap Laughs, and developed his indigenous psychedelia in virtual isolation. A Bird in the Engine is even more rare than his debut. From the extraordinary Eagle-Wise to the remarkable title track (which includes the uncredited performance of a friend hitting a cardboard box with a microphone), Prouds unrestrained genius is laid bare, a delicate tension of simple melodies and maddening form. While other compilations of Prouds music have been released in recent years, this is the first time A Bird in the Engine has been reissued in its original format.

"Americas most prominent noise figure, Dominick Fernow has for the better part of two decades helped shape and reinvent the genre with a stream of works under the Prurient moniker. A project unlike any other in the realms of experimental, ambient, and noise, Prurient continually mutates from one incarnation to the next. Fernow often treads a fine line between harsh noise extremity and atmospheric beauty -- his massive, layered walls of sound may be comprised of piercing feedback, tortured vocals, and machinelike industrial pounding, or incorporate meticulous sampling, entrancing beats, and waves of electronica -- yet his prolific output is never less than compelling. Prurients first full-length since the 2011 game-changer Bermuda Drain sees Fernow deliver the projects most ambitious release to date. A sprawling album clocking in at just under 90 minutes, Frozen Niagara Falls is the result of over a year of work. It is without a doubt Prurients magnum opus, and will solidify the artists standing as a visionary master able to break down barriers between genres while creating something entirely new and different." - Profound Lore.

"A 45-track, triple CD set collecting all four volumes of the Black Mill Tapes series from Pye Corner Audio. Audio re-mastered by Matt Colton. Housed in a triple jewel case. Lurking in the shadows between deep house, slow techno, Carpenter soundtracks and classic electronica, these sibling albums transcend genres with hallucinatory, shape-shifting effect, trudging from the pastoral whimsy of the first volumes to a darker, less certain point on the horizon. They could just as easily soundtrack a thriller about Balearic drug dealers as a sleazy, modern film noir set in Glasgow or some cosmic sci-fi adventure, spiking stealthy bass grooves with richly visual darkwave motifs and moments of beat-less, flickering neon ambient. Arguably, its some of the most evocative analog electronica since AFXs SAW II and BoCs Music Has The Right To Children, a masterful balance of eldritch melancholia and darkside prurience ranging from supple square wave rollers to hexed ambient vignettes." -Type.

Price: $30.00
"On the leading edge of NYCs underground music scene, Vito Ricci produced only a handful of self-released cassettes and one LP between 1983 and 1985, with most of his work recorded for experimental theater and performance art pieces. Taking their label name from Riccis only LP, Music From Memory brings together a compilation of works by one of the unsung heroes of New Yorks downtown music scene. Starting out as a percussionist, Riccis early musical journey led him to improvised and experimental jazz; working alongside such luminary musicians as Rashied Ali, Byard Lancaster, Peter Zummo, and Yousef Yancey. He quickly became involved in the avant-garde scene with spoken word performances, film scores for independent movies, and even performances with punk bands at venues such as CBGBs and the Mudd Club, and his compositions drew on all of these influences while channeling them through his experiments with synthesizers and drum computers. Drawing comparisons with New Yorks downtown no-wave scene, Vitos compositions blend his unique use of intricate percussion with a wide sphere of musical influences to create a world of hypnotizing ambient, meditative minimal-synth, dubbed-out electronic funk, and even left-field boogie. With most of Vito Riccis music remaining previously unreleased, the compilation I Was Crossing A Bridge unveils Riccis unique and visionary take on electronic music." - Music From Memory.

"A friend of Aguirre recalls meeting Tim Robertson by chance in a thrift store in Barcelona, while eyeing a dusty Hammond organ: "He was born in Honduras, but moved out of there at a young age to several other countries such as Perú, France, and Norway. His parents were devoted to some religious organization and they were spreading the word all around. The last place they were sent to was Barcelona, hence the reason he was there. He learned to play the keyboards as a kid and performed in church. He told me his life changed after spending some years in Niger and Ethiopia. He returned from that experience totally renewed and decided to somehow capture all the ideas he had during his stay in Africa. He bought an old four-track recorder and started jamming around the simple but complex idea of how church music in space would sound. During the next two years he got obsessed with creating the compositions of the future temples on Saturn and Neptune. He recorded hours and hours of music. In the end, feeling totally frustrated, he decided to throw to the bin all those tapes. Well, not all of them. Happily he kept two as a gift to his parents. Sadly, his parents passed away some years later. While cleaning their apartment he found the tapes and with the passing of time he decided to keep them as a memory of that crazy time. I was really curious about those tapes so I asked him if it would be possible to listen to them. After a couple of minutes I was totally captivated by them. It was so strange. The kind of repetitive music with cheap keyboard presets. So rough, basic, and fragile. It was then I told him that I felt more people had to listen to those recordings. After quite a bit of arguing, he finally accepted. At least Im sharing the word of God with more people, he said. So 20 years after they were originally recorded Im proud to share with everyone out there these seven tracks by a man who had a strange vision: compose the perfect soundtrack for the buildings where future space travelers would praise the lord. You can now judge with your own ears if he achieved his goal or failed. Peace!" Recorded in 1993. Remastered from the original tapes by Anders Peterson. Pressed on milky white vinyl.

"Roger Roger (August 5 1911 - June 12 1995) was a French film composer and bandleader. His aliases included Eric Swan and Cecil Leuter, the latter a pseudonym he used for his electronic productions. He was one of the first, along with Pierre Henry and Jean-Jacques Perrey, to experiment with the Moog synth; his Pop Electronique album was released in 1969, five years after Bob Moog put his synth on the market. Musique Idiote is his super-rare experimental Moogy LP with beautiful cover art, a definitive collectors item for fans of Dada, the absurd, or Monthy Python. Its full of short analog synth compositions on the theme of "extremely annoying and devolved." Kinda like the total madness of a circus calliope album, but more circuit-bent. This is music to bash your brains in with a hammer to! Roger Roger was one of the kings of library music; this album was originally released in 1971 by the French label Neuilly, easily one of the coolest libraries, with a roster that included Janko Nilović, Yan Tregger, Jean Bouchéty, and Nino Nardini." - Sonitron.

Title: Manhunter
Format: LP
Label: Kye
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Manhunter is the brand new LP by Australias James Rushford and Joe Talia. The duos previous work, Palisades (2009) and Paper Fault Line (2011), showcased a gestural and timbrally rich music, bristling with keen detail and sharp edits. Manhunter stands in stark contrast - an ebbing two-part suite for waning greyscale electronics, dehumanized drum machine, amorphous vocal fragments, and sundry devices, woven together in a fabric of despair. The exquisite bleakness of Manhunter ties it to La Mutazione, Abandoned Cities, Theme From Hunger, and other great downer classics of yore. Manhunter arrives in a full-color high gloss Michael Salerno designed sleeve, with complimentary labels, in an edition of 400 copies." -Kye.

Title: Golem
Format: LP
Label: Rotorelief
Country: France
Price: $25.00
“I first heard of SAND ten years ago, when I noticed a copy of an album entitled Golem in Steven Stapletons vast collection. I was - and am still - a great admirer of the works of Gustav Meyrinck, whose novel Der Golem is his most famous publication, and which inspired the wondrous film of the same title directed by Paul Wegener. I hoped the record may have been a muscial evocation of the book. it wasnt, but was instead an album of haunting, dreamlike songs, quite unlike anything I had heard then, or have heard since. The album obsessed me, and i eventually tracked a copy down for myself with the assistance of Edward Ka-Spel, another connoisseur of this scarce recording, and it established itlsef in my Top Ten Albums Ever. I listened to the album again and again, trying to work out just how SAND - a group whom, as far as I knew at that time, had done this one album and then disappeared forever - had created this most bizarre ghost of a sound. At one point John Balance of Coil and i discussed doing a remake of the entire album, but decided it would be impossible to equal it. teh only attempt we made was on "May Rain", which turned up on Current 93s Thunder Perfect Mind album in 1992. I had tried, on and off, to get in touch with any of SAND, but no-one seemed to know who they were, never mind where they were. Eventually Steven and Alan Freeman, Krautrock experts, editors of the Audion magazine and proprietors of the Ultima Thule shop, gave me the telephone number of Klaus Müller, the manager of Klaus Schulze, who had recorded the album for SAND in 1974. Klaus Müller at first thought I was trying to arrange an interview with the group, and patiently pointed out there was no point in interviewing them as they were no longer together. I explained that my wish was to release the album, not to interview them, and Klause swiftly came back to me with Johannes Vesters number in Berlin. I went there to meet him, and he played me a vast array of extra material that they had recorded towards Golem, as well as his unreleased solo album, Born At Dawn, recorded under the wonderful name of Johannes Vester And His Vester Bester Tester Electric Folk Orchestra, and hours of music recorded with P.O.T. and his friends in the still earlier halcyon hippy days. There had been several near-meetings between Steven, Johannes and myself, it transpired: Johannes had once lived just behind in a house just behind mine when I was involved with Psychic TV; and had once holidayed in Eire and walked up the mountain behind Steven Stapletons house, situated in the wilds of ireland. he had visited Rough Trade Distribution in 1983 with copies of the ALU record, and had just left the shop - Johannes had taken a photograph of the warehouse and asked me if I knew the person staring out of the image: it was Douglas P. of Death In June! All proof that we were destined to meet and that, ten years after first marvelling at Golem, Steven and myself could release it on United Durtro, VerySound of VerySand.” - David Tibet, TinyLand, 16 April 1996.

"The present album is a reissue of Golem, the legendary album from the cosmic and psychedelic genius that is Sand. Factory-noise, riveting hammers from the dockyards, agricultural machines, Starfighters low level flights, land manoeuvres by the British Forces in the mountainous countryside along the winding river were the culture medium for extended sound aesthetics. Sand was born and created the GOLEM.
At first Sand dressed the Golem with Helicopter and dir ected him to walk ahead.
Rotorelief releases, from 2010, a series of new albums from Sand as well as a reissue of their obscure and rare album Golem. This series of albums is called INXODEM, the series title having one letter for each album. 5 albums of Sand are to be released: His First Steps, Golem, Desert Navigation, Sylph Ballet, North Atlantic Raven. Chromanatron by Nurse with Wound and When the May Rain Comes, cover versions of Sand by Current 93, complete the series. Numbeed edition of 500." - Rotorelief.

Title: Isolation!
Format: LP
Label: BIN
Country: Denmark
Price: $33.00
"Roberta Settels (1929 - 2014) was an American composer and industrial designer, living in Stockholm, Sweden. She studied composition at Juliard in New York, and during the 70-ties and 80-ties, composed electronic music in Stockholm at EMS, and in Paris at IRCAM, and studied with the composeres Pierre Boulez and Iannis Xenakis. Later she created her own studio. Isolation from 1985 is her only released recording. It was released on her private label Music in Crisis. Although Isolation was composed in 1985, most parts of it sound very fresh and contemporary. Very unique for its time, the timbres and formal progression of the work bare little resemblance to the electroacoustic maximalism of the period. Rather it shares aesthetics with contemporary genres such as lowercase and microsound. The music, all generated by pure analog means, contains elements of extreme minimalism and splicing-techniques derived from the tape-music tradition. Even though the work, making clever use of sine-waves and white noise, it is very minimal in its expression, and very clearly communicates the emotional states of lonliness and isolation which are its conceptual aim. The work is divided into four parts: Landscape With 3 tape-recorders And... , Scenario, Isolation (Meinhof In Memoriam) and P1 - Information?, forming a perceived whole. This release comes with a custom-made plastic sleeve, with cover-notes in Swedish, English, German and French, written and designed by the composer.” - BIN. Re-release of the 1985 LP. Limited edition of 250 copies. As with the original, this comes in custom made silk screened plastic cover.

Artist: SHAMPOO BOY
Title: Crack
Format: LP
Label: Blackest Ever Black
Country: UK
Price: $22.00
"The Vienna-based trios second LP following 2013s crushing debut Licht (BLACKEST 016LP), Crack finds Peter Rehberg (Editions Mego), Christina Nemec (comfortzone), and Christian Schachinger crafting a powerful alloy of extreme electroacoustic music, luminous ambience, and the mineral fundaments of rock and black metal. Opener "Spalt" immediately signals a departure from the monolithic doom of Licht, conveying instead a sense of adrenalized movement, of acceleration toward an ever-receding horizon. There is no percussion, yet Nemecs chasmic bass and Rehbergs protean electronics give rise to an unstoppable momentum. Schachingers highly lyrical, spiraling guitar improvisations nod to Fripp and Göttsching, but Shampoo Boys vision of the cosmos is more hard-boiled and unforgiving than that of their forefathers. On "Riss," slow, ceremonial down-strokes suggest a return to Licht, with the addition of Rehbergs unintelligible conversation-snippets, machine noise, and nameless natural currents mingling in pernicious hybrid forms that curl and ricochet about the stereo field. Subterranean bass tones, meanwhile, seem to reverberate from an ancient and appalling source. Its typical of Cracks unorthodox Weltanschauung, however, that just when we think the game is up, we are faced not with oblivion but with potential absolution: "Riss"s closing section is a gravely serene tone-painting. Side B is given in its entirety to the three-part "Bruch," the most potent and pugilistic manifestation of Shampoo Boys brute psychedelia to date. Part I is a near-gothic assemblage of tortured computer processing, abyssal drones, and stray industrial noise. This gives way to the calm but agonized concrète of part II, sparse, minimalist, dub-damaged. The broiling digital synthesis of part III complements annihilating slow-motion riffage; a thuggish monochord attack that feels almost Stooge-ian -- grungy, swaggering, sewer-savvy -- but doubles back into abstraction. It becomes impossible to distinguish individual instruments, processes, or contributions; the group mind takes over, the third eye is on fire, and the album climaxes in a black flash of negative ecstasy. Epic in scale, complex in mood, and dazzling in technique, Crack is a momentous achievement from three improvising musicians at the height of their powers. A lived-in and emotionally charged work, harrowing but energizing, it is also a sustained achievement of arrangement and post-production remarkable even in light of its makers pedigree: the harshest and heaviest passages are rendered with a sense of space and richness of detail that is truly otherworldly. Russell Haswells astute mastering amplifies this, resulting in one a supremely exhilarating and rewarding work." - Blackest Ever Black.

Format: 7"
Label: Fourth Dimension

"Sleaford Mods started around 2006 in Nottingham by Jason Williamson. Born out of frustration and by accident, it quickly found its feet as an aggressive attack on all that is contrived and connected to the day-to-day hammer of low paid employment. "Mr. Jolly Fucker" and "Tweet Tweet Tweet" sees the duo continuing their sometimes raucous yet always edgy melding of mean hip-hop beats, often savage poetic observations (think whizzed-out Mark E. Smith) and snarling punk attitude. A full-on kick to the senses inspired by the Sex Pistols, The Last Poets, and 60s garage and soul music." - Fourth Dimension.

Artist: SLEEP CHAMBER
Title: Sonorous Invokations Ov Brian Jones Vol #1
Format: 10"
Label: Manhood
Country: Italy
Price: $11.00
1995 release. Recorded at Roshambo Studios, 1994. "SONOROUS INVOKATIONS OV BRIAN JONES is SLEEP CHAMBERs 19th album. As on BRIAN JONES album PRESENTS THE PIPES OF PAN AT JOUJOUKA, this album is about the traditional ritual music of Morocco. JOHN ZEWIZZ of SLEEP CHAMBER impressively adapts this music by the use of flutes, horns, bells, cymbals etc., mixed with samples of BRIAN JONES. The last track contains parts of an interview done with JONES during his time in the military. The whole album is underlayed by the typical dark sounds of SLEEP CHAMBER. The result is a masterpiece of classical ritual industrial music, which can be compared to SLEEP CHAMBERs cult album SEXMAGICK RITUAL." - Fünfundvierzig.

Artist: SSLEEPING DESIRESS
Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Onderstroom
Country: Belgium
Price: $24.00
"While the band has gone through a few lineup changes, Ssleeping Desiress has essentially remained the brainchild of San Francisco-based Gabriel Ramos, who is the sole member on this, the bands debut album. Following the great 2012 A Voice/Sister 7", this album runs along the boundaries between minimal synth, coldwave, and electro with lyrical themes of gentrification, coping with death, artistic drive and confusion, and the ephemeral nature of relationships. Ssleeping Desiress have appeared on numerous new new wave compilations since 2011, but this album takes the project to the next level, kicking off with an echoing voice over repetitive drums and outbursts of synths and guitars before slowly moving toward a more darkwave sound on the second half of the album. Ramos started making solo recordings while living in Portland, Oregon, around 2005. The DIY drive of the city and the live shows that he hosted at his house, often of friends bands from San Francisco, led to a growing fascination and voracious consumption of music. Ramos recalls, "I can really trace it to the first time Spector Protector played at my house and getting a tape afterwards from one of the two members, Eric Davis. That and being freshly exposed to groups like Suicide and Arthur Russell was very inspirational to begin recording music on my own, though it is something I had done fairly aimlessly since high school. I make an effort and try and change my process as much as I can (usually through collaboration) and vary the instrumentation. I try and incorporate a late 70s punk vibe, a marriage of dub and krautrock repetition and cavernous space. Definitely not always successful but that is what is usually running through my head when I create music for this band." Mastered by Michael Romanowski. Graphic design by Luis Mendoza. Limited to 300 copies." - Onderstroom.

Artist: TWILIGHT RITUAL
Title: The Ritual
Format: LP
Label: Onderstroom
Country: Belgium
Price: $24.00
"First vinyl release of the first ever recordings by Belgian minimal synth masters Twilight Ritual. Originally released in 1982 in a tiny cassette edition, this album has not been heard by many people. The Ritual includes some of their best work, from mysterious dark synthpop songs ("Elegy") to club music ("Webb Men") and the epic 14-minute track "Up to Now." Twilight Ritual is the main project of Geert Coppens and Peter Bonne. During the early 80s they were both involved in many other bands, including Autumn and Linear Movement (both later reissued by Minimal Wave), but Twilight Ritual is by far the most inspired project. The spirit of the band lingers on beneath the work of Autumn through A Split-Second and stands beside the best tracks of bands such as Oppenheimer Analysis and League of Nations. Instruments and production by Peter Bonne. Lyrics and artwork by Geert Coppens. Remastered at Equus. Includes double-sided insert with lyrics and photos." - Onderstroom.

"At a time when musical shifts were almost a daily routine in the immediate aftermath of the 1960s, multi-instrumentalist Vyto Beleska decided to trawl through the archives of his own Clay Pigeon studios, based in Chicagos South Side. Assembled here are past recording projects that utilized some of Chicagos finest underground musicians, whose collaborations with Beleska reveal another chapter in the annals of psychedelia and garage. To mark the early work of Beleska and Clay Pigeon Studios, a privately pressed album was issued in 1972 in a quantity of 500 copies. Circulated locally, the Clay Pigeon recordings were sadly never acknowledged on a national or worldwide level. The time has come to give wider recognition to the inspiring and awesome sounds that came from these musicians. This is the first legitimate reissue of this retrospective look at one of Chicagos finest unsung musical innovators whose early recorded legacy boasts more fuzz, feedback, and psychedelic mayhem than any true 60s rock fan could desire. Digitally remastered from the original recording; includes detailed background liners and rare archival photographs." - Stoned Circle.

Title: S/T
Format: LP

Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Named after an 1870s tome of lectures on the Apocalypse, RICK TOMLINSONs VOICE OF THE SEVEN THUNDERS distills years of divergent musical exploration that followed his much-acclaimed VOICE OF THE SEVEN WOODS debut (Twisted Nerve, 2007). This time around, multi-instrumentalist and sound sculptor Tomlinson has assembled a full-fledged rock group. On their self-titled new release, infernal and primitive energies mingle with the bucolic reveries that won him previous acclaim. "Open Lighted Doorway" begins the album with a glimmer of the pastoral sounds that mark Tomlinsons earlier recordings, soaked in reverb as if corrupted by time; the monolithic "Kommune" follows with rolling guitars and rhythmic layers of primal percussion. "The Burning Mountain" erupts like flames from an Anatolian mirage-a tide from the East. The purely acoustic "Dry Leaves" offers the listener a momentary respite before "Dalaelven" breaks the spell with its vertiginous howl. This blinding acid haze is broken only by the stripped-down vocal harmonies of the introspective closer "Disappearances." Received a 9/10 rating in NME, a 4/5 rating in MOJO, and 4/5 rating in Uncut." -Holy Mountain
