Artist: ABRAMS AND NATURAL INFORMATION SOCIETY, JOSHUA
Title: Simultonality
Format: LP
Label: Eremite
Country: USA
Price: $32.00
Second pressing. "Simultonality is the follow-up to Joshua Abramss critically acclaimed 2015 album Magnetoception (MTE 063-64LP, 2015). Credited to Joshua Abrams and Natural Information Society (NIS), it is the first recording in the projects nine year, four album history made by a regularly gigging manifestation, rather than a special assembly of friends. Recorded in 2014 and 2015 in single takes by the full ensemble during and after tours of the US and Canada, Simultonality once more affirms the projects unique approach to joining traditional musics, American minimalism, and jazz with the Gnawa ceremonial instrument the guimbri. Stasis, continuity, and repetition, central qualities of Abrams language, defined Magnetoception, listed by many as one of the best records of 2015. These same qualities form the heart of Abramss music on Simultonality. But where Abrams once said Magnetoception is about "winter and death", Simultonality, in Abramss words, is an album of "pure motion". Without sounding frenetic it is the most explosive NIS music on record, and without sounding over-determined, it is Abramss most structured and through-composed music yet. Much of it is also fast, a mass of densely patterned elements swiftly orbiting constantly reconfiguring centers that are variously harmonic and rhythmic, clearly stated or implied. The music is at no time any more disorderly than a colony of bees pollinating a vast garden. Its many moving parts function in mutualistic relationship toward fulfilling Abramss long stated intention for the project: to help listeners achieve a meditative center and to consciously use music as a gateway to living. Abrams credits William Parker as an inspiration for this intention. The musicians on Simultonality date back to the nascency of NIS. Along with Hamid Drake, Mikel Avery and Frank Rosaly are Abrams first-call drummers for the project. On Simultonality, Avery is in the left channel, Rosaly the right. Astute heads may recognize the rhythm in "Sideways Fall" as Jaki Leibezeits drum break in Cans "Vitamin C". At Abrams behest, the two drummers divided the beat into separate parts. According to Hamid Drake, the rhythm was popularized, if not originated, by John "Jabo" Starks and Clyde Stubblefield of the J.B.s. Nearly ten years into its existence, Abrams and the NIS wear their influences with creativity and ease. Long standing NIS members, Ben Boye and Emmett Kelly, were previously together with Abrams, or not, in Bonnie Prince Billys band, and Abrams and Boye have at different times played in Kellys band The Cairo Gang. Harmonium player Lisa Alvarado contributes the large format pattern paintings used by NIS at concerts and for its album covers. Personnel: Joshua Abrams - guimbri, bass, small harp, bells; Lisa Alvarado - harmonium, Leslie, percussion; Michael Avery - drums and percussion; Ben Boye - chromatic electric autoharp, piano, Wurlitzer; Ari Brown - tenor saxophone (on "2128½"); Emmett Kelly - electric guitar; Frank Rosaly - drums and percussion, resonator bells. Pressed on premium quality audiophile vinyl by RTI, presented in replica audiophile dust sleeves and heavyweight Stoughton LaserDisc jackets screenprinted by Alan Sherry/Siwa." - Eremite.

"ANKH is a French group of Normandy (Les Andelys in Eure), established in autumn 1974 Fabrice Baty (guitar), Philippe Briard (bass) and Michel Chevalier (drums).

Artist: BRUSH, LEIF
Title: Stitching in Process: Windmixed Data
Format: Double LP
Label: Pentiments
Country: USA
Price: $32.00
"Pentiments continues its collaboration with the legendarily enigmatic American sound art pioneer Leif Brush, this time with an extensive double LP release representing the most comprehensive collection of his recorded work to date. In plumbing the depths of his archives, weve unearthed and gathered a great breadth of his decades-long sonic research, spanning from his early work as a grad student to various lecture documents from his eventual tenure at UMD, with many curious stops and experiments in between. “Stitching in Process: Windmixed Data” brings these fragments together with a somewhat new perspective on their trajectory—pieces are reconsidered, refreshed, and given a new sense of continuity, aided additionally by the expert mastering of Giuseppe Ielasi. Most importantly, this release marks the first commercially available compendium of Leifs greater body of work in his 85 years of life, and for those keen on the early exploration of sound and its potentials, it is a revelation that is long overdue. In an edition of 200 with high gloss gatefold sleeve featuring the photo work of Gloria DeFilipps Brush." - Pentiments. Edition of 200 copies.

Artist: CAMPBELL, NEIL & RICHARD YOUNGS
Title: Six Scores
Format: LP
Label: Shaking Box
Country: Canada
Price: $20.00
140 gram vinyl with printed inner sleeves. Edition of 300.Mastered by Sean McCann.

"Neil Campbell and Richard Youngs were offered a duo gig in Leeds, and realized they had not done anything as a duo since the How The Garden Is LP over fifteen years ago. Opting for an entirely different approach, this time they decided to do “songs." There were some rules involved. Both agreed to pick one instrument each, plus vocals. Richard chose violin, and Neil chose Casio. After coming up with six song titles, lyrics were written independent of one another. The next task was to write six scores that would be played by the other, so each would be singing their own lyrics while also attempting to play the others score. For the gig, neither showed the scores to each other beforehand. Neil made verbal instructions, “sometimes elaborate, sometimes simple, that I thought might cause Richard some problems performing.” Richards scores were long, carefully notated pieces that, in Neils words, “would definitely cause me some problems, as I dont read music. To compound it, he later told me most of them were unplayable anyway.” 

Their contributions were recorded independently, without reference to the others playing. Neil took effort to play the actual notation as closely as he could, giving each piece a general tonality. He recorded three tracks and told Richard the track lengths, so their contributions would be the same length. They recorded three songs each in this manner, eventually mixing each of their contributions over each other so that any interaction between their playing is coincidental, with only key and track length forming the cement.  The resulting LP is suitably puzzling, a playfully rigid yet entirely absurd set of score-based songs from two of the most frequently intriguing headscratchers out there. They were also kind enough to let me include bits and pieces from the actual scores in designing the sleeves, so lyrics, unplayable notation, and printed verbal directions are all included, if youd care to challenge a friend." - D.F. 

Artist: CAROLINE NO
Title: No Language
Format: LP
Label: Students of Decay
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Recorded in early 2015 and originally released as a micro edition cassette on World News Records, No Language is the debut collection of songs by Melbournes Caroline No. The groups unique, beguiling sound sits somewhere between archetypal Dunedin pop and languorous, textural improvisation. No Language was spontaneously recorded with one microphone and the serendipity of the session proves tactile in the listening experience. Heavily reverbed laughter, coughing, fits, and starts with various processing equipment contribute wonderfully to the ephemeral nature of the music. On "Up To Downtown", vocalist Caroline Kennedy implores the band to "just try to stay in time" before lurching into what, against all odds, turns out to be a remarkably anthemic earworm of a pop song. The closer, "Roomer", incorporates granular processing (perhaps a pedal someone forgot theyd brought to the session) to endearing and startling effect. Ultimately, No Language is a marvelous balancing act of a record, drawing from pop, free improv, and psychedelia in equal parts to arrive at something timeless. Students of Decay is a record label based out of Cincinnati, Ohio, run by Alex Cobb. Active since 2005, the label has published a wide range of ambient, drone, micro-sound, and electronic recordings, on a variety of formats. Includes download code; Edition of 300." - Student Of Decay.

Artist: CHRISTENSEN, STEFAN
Title: Shake Off The Village
Format: LP
Label: C/Site
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"To call Shake Off The Village Stefan Christensens debut full-length would be a bit of a misnomer. Since moving to solo work in 2015 Christensen has released a slew of full-length cassettes, vinyl EPs and collaborations. However, Shake Off The Village marks Christensens first outing at 12 inches and 33 RPMs. SOTV was recorded in his makeshift studio space, at home and at live shows, over a period of two years. The recordings are weaved together, allowing for only occasional silences, and daringly bridging from tailored acoustic songwriting to blaring all out noise assaults. The record shows a shift in Christensens writing. Many of the full band tracks are culled from hours of improvisation and often bring to mind the fertile Xpressway catalog. While loop driven four-track meditations veer closer to Precious Metal micro-presses, and nimbler guitar tracks show that Christensens songwriting prowess is as profound as ever. The air is heavy on SOTV, as tracks draw inspiration from Christensens daily life – interactions with students navigating a harsh urban experience at the high school where he works, death, longing and his roommates editorial dealings due to the New Haven Registers 25 cent price increase. However tensions are always eased with odes to friends, past and present, and a hopeful bliss one occasionally stumbles upon. Christensen has oft cited names like Galbraith and Shepard as pivotal influences, but their largest inspiration doesnt seem to come in sound, but rather in the way that Christensens music, demands the listeners attention - not to be relegated to the background, the ebbs-and-flows, tensions and quarrels of Shake Off The Village force their way front and center, not to be ignored. A keen observer noted Christensens music as easy listening for those who enjoyed difficult listening and we could not agree more. Limited to 350 copies. Lovingly hand assembled – linocut block printed front covers (no two are exactly alike) with paste-on/hand stamped back covers." - C/Site.

Artist: COLEI, CRYS & OREN AMBARCHI
Title: Hotel Record
Format: Double LP
Label: Black Truffle
Country: Australia
Price: $32.00
"Hotel Record is the second release from the duo/couple of crys cole and Oren Ambarchi, following on from Sonja Henies vei 31 (PLANAM 031LP, 2014). Where their debut recording presented a disquieting portrait of the erotic dimension of romantic intimacy, the follow-up continues to explore the pairs simultaneously musical and romantic relationship in a more subtle fashion, presenting four long-form pieces that touch on the variety of forms the life of this couple takes: as a musical duo, as a pair of travelers to exotic locations, as opponents in a game of cards... Each of the double LPs four sides presents a distinct sound-world, yet each manages to attain the same suspended, half-sleeping feeling, outlining a space where improbable combinations of the electronic and the acoustic, of extreme closeness and amorphous distance, occurring with the gentle insistence of a dream. The opening "Call Myself" calmly unfolds a fabric of long tones from electronic organ and guitar, combining the sliding, aleatoric effects of classic David Behrman with a more hands-on feel. Over the top of this slowly shifting tonal bed, coles voice mutters unintelligibly into a Buchla synth, teasing the listener by suggesting a meaning that remains always out of the ears reach. "Francis Debacle (Uno)" builds on the foundations of a heavily amplified session of the titular card game, overlaying vocal murmurs and exhalations and mysterious room-sounds to create an impossible aural environment. On "Burrata", a palette of vintage 1980s digital synthesizer sounds combined with guitars create an irregular texture of lush chords and bubbling melodic details, into which coles voice processed by a vocoder, is interwoven, reading fragments of romantic correspondence. Finally, on "Pad Phet Gob", field recordings made in Thailand become an ambiguously acoustic/electronic rainforest, eventually giving way to a mysterious, wavering electronic tone-field punctuated by sibilant, popping mouth-sounds. Carving out an intimate and human sonic space across a diverse array of compositional approaches, sound sources, fidelities, and textures, Hotel Record is the latest dispatch from the continuing explorations of a unique duo. Ambarchi and cole reimagine electro-acoustic music, not simply as "abstract" sound, but as a diary, a love poem, a dream. Comes in deluxe gatefold sleeve with photography by crys cole and LP design via Stephen OMalley; Mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering." - Black Truffle.

Artist: COLTRANE, ALICE
Title: Journey in Satchidananda
Format: LP
Label: No Label
Country: Europe
Price: $18.00
"A great leap in jazz experimentation, this 1971 release successfully joins American free jazz with ethereal and spiritual Indian classical music. With Coltrane leading on harp and piano, theres a significant presence of Tulsis beautiful tamboura playing on the first 5 tracks, along with the restrained and melodic sax of Pharoah Sanders, bass by Cecil McBee, drums by Rashied Ali, and bells by Majid Shabazz. The 6th and final track was recorded live at The Village Gate, and features some great interplay between Charlie Haden on bass and Vishnu Wood on oud. Original full color artwork."

Artist: CRUCIFER
Title: Premiere Heur
Format: LP
Label: Cameleon
Country: France
Price: $23.00
"For the first time edited to 300 copies, the album "Première Heure" recorded in 1973 by the former members of RHYTHM CHECKERS. Rock/prog French high performance.

The early 70s marks the return of the mythical garage rock formation of the sixties RHYTHM CHECKERS. At the time, two of the bands original band members Roland Bauer and drummer Danny Gentner played in the URBAN TONON jazz band with ex-LOVES and BLACK & WHITE Jimmy Bock (keyboards) /flute). Roland, Danny and Jimmy decide to reform the RHYTHM CHECKERS with another former member of LOVES, Michaël Czeninga (solo guitar). The air of time is progressive rock in French, the group adapts and under the name of CHECKERS, they record a single, "Its a dream" / "Ouanita" (Schneider 22-133) and participate in the Festival Pop de Strasbourg on 27 May 1972 with AMON DÜÜL and ANGE. To earn a living, the RHYTHM CHECKERS orientate towards a style between pop and variety animating balls. But these talented musicians have other projects, under the initiative of Jimmy who made the conservatory until the age of 16 and who is encouraged by the success of groups like ANGE. They embark on an ambitious project, under the name of Crucifer, to create a symphonic rock work entitled "Première Heure" based on classical music." - Cameleon.

Label: Water Wing
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
2017 repress. "Captured in the depth of a Minnesota winter in a room equipped with two grand pianos, Crystal Myslajek produced the six track opus that is Circadia. Circadia is a contemplative, intuitive and luminous album of slowly unfurling arrangements for piano, voice, bass, drums and modular synthesizer. Myslajek (formerly of ethereal art-rock trio Brute Heart) is a Minneapolis-based performer and composer. Her compositions blend haunting vocals with minimalist classical piano, punctuated by bowed and plucked double bass, and sparse percussion. The sweeps and tones of a modular synthesizer articulates the colors already present in this modern achievement of musical production. Featuring Liz Draper (double bass), Chris Hepola (percussion and piano), and John Marks (modular synthesizer)." - Water Wing.

Artist: DORA, DELPHINE & MOCKE
Title: Le Corps Defendant
Format: Dbl 10"
Label: Okraina
Country: Belgium
Price: $22.00
Delphine Dora and Mocke present Le Corps Défendant on Okraïna. Ned Netherwood of Was Ist Das? on the release: "There is something special about when artists like these collaborate. Two independent talents, both completely self-sufficient choosing to come together and see what happens, to let the muses mingle and share the results with the rest of us. What we have here, however, is not some quick jam caught on tape but a long distance collaboration carefully put together over three years. The result is something that gives us a broad overview of the two talents spotlighted here, showcasing many different moods, sounds and styles. Created like an exquisite corpse story they sent each other music to work on with no instructions or suggestions, just some inspiring mix tapes of everyone from Duke Ellington to Harry Partch. They clearly found their way. As well as her own music (which ended up on Pitchforks best of 2015 list), Delphine runs the excellent Wild Silence record label. As well as being a solo artist, Mocke has played with the likes of Arlt, Holden and Midget! On this record, Mocke plays the guitar and Delphine sings and plays everything else. Hes one hell of a guitar player, bringing to mind Loren Connors, John Fahey and anyone who ever took a six string and mastered it their own damn way. Delphine sings sweetly, sometimes from classic texts or as a glossolalia (divinely expressing without words), though to a non-French speaker you would swear was some lost classic pop song reinterpreted in her own style. Both Delphine and Mocke are originally from Paris but both have long since left, Mocke for Brussels and Delphine for the deepest French countryside. That difference can be found in their music. Mockes music is urbane with a touch of inner-city paranoia. Delphines music always sounds isolated in a big landscape. They complement each other as opposites. Like all Okraïna releases, the stunning artwork is by Gwénola Carrère and I cant think of anyone better suited to try and encapsulate this stunningly varied and vivid album. The title does not translate to English as it is a poetic corruption of a common phrase. I think something similar happened to common music on this album." Personnel: Delphine Dora: voice, piano, prepared piano, keyboards, celesta, glockenspiel, piano, guitar strings, violin, shruti box, field recordings, objects; Mocke - guitar."

Artist: ENHET FOR FRI MUSIK
Title: Det finns ett hjärta som för dig
Format: LP
Label: Omlott
Country: Sweden
Price: $25.00
Limited to 300. Heavy full color gatefold cover. "Discovering the Förlag För Fri Musik label and the associated acts has to me been one of the major highlights of the last few years. Ive been lucky enough to have taken part in events and acquaintances some people could only dream of, but for me it has always been about the music. Yeah, I got to know Albert Ayler in the autumn of 66 when we shared a cab in Stockholm. I somehow lured myself into the crew around International Harvester and their early stage, not really socializing much but would still found myself half asleep on the floor while Sov Gott Rose-Marie was being recorded. Was it the same week I somehow ended up in charge of the café at the Zodiak Free Arts Lab in Berlin? Possibly. It’s all in my biography. On my many travels Ive been floored, spoiled and overwhelmed. Lester Bangs owes me $27 and an excuse. During my stint in the UK, I was at the first The Jesus & Mary Chain show and a few years later drank myself through an dark period of schmucks staring at their ugly shoes while awkwardly playing their guitars through endless chains of effect units. My life has been good and rich of fantastic encounters. Some terrible ones too. Towards the late 90s my life-long passion kind of ended. Not because I was getting older really. No, I rather blame the lack of interesting sounds. The lack of interesting artists. My passion drained, I stopped going to shows, I stopped buying records. I remained friends with plenty of people but a whole era of my life just seemed to be over. I emerged myself into literature and cinema for the following 15 years, and my listening habits were mainly focused on private pressed 80s heavy metal from USA during this period.

Fast forward to early 2015. My oldest daughter knocks on the door to my home office and throws a copy of the Enhet För Fri Musik cassette Inom Dig, Inom Mig in my lap. Listen to this, will you. Right up your alley, blah blah. The usual exaggerations in another tiresome attempt to wind up the old man. A fucking cassette, how cute. This one however... Wow! Mind blown. That something. Memories of a lifetime flashing by. A feeling of something else, finally. I poured down the last drops of my Scotch, took my bicycle down to Music Lovers, the store where my daughter supposedly had obtained this particular little gem, just to found out more about this band. Which I didnt, but thats another story. I mustve listened to the cassette about 20 times a day for at least a month. It was like seeing photos of Les Rallizes Denudes for the first time, but the photos being music instead. It was like seeing Träd, Gräs & Stenar at Gärdet in 1970, but this time not having sex with my girlfriends’ brother behind the scene. It was like my first exposure to Jandek (never been a fan, but you know what I mean). Trying to figure out more gave me the same feeling as sending well-concealed francs for some LLN cassettes to a friggin castle in southern France, just hoping for the best. Or receiving the very first jiffy with via-USA Japan-imported noise cassettes from Ron Lessard. Just as if no time had passed at all, I shortly found myself fully immersed in a musical universe again, this time the Gothenburg underground. It turned out that the cassette was only the beginning and that the two following LPs, one released by themselves and one on an Italian label, were not only much better but both minor masterpieces in their own right. So yeah, I just did what I had to do and soon enough could address myself a "writer" again and even being paid for that.

I managed to hustle down an unmastered advance tape of the upcoming Det Finns Ett Hjärta Som För Dig album from the band after a few weeks of weird negotiating which could be described as walking into a wall headfirst over and over. From my many years as a music writer Im used to the other way around, bands and labels basically begging you to accept their promotion copies and lame-ass one sheets. But Enhet För Fri Musik, it was like they knew they had something big on their hands even though they obviously didnt realize it themselves. Every question was received with suspicion. Like, what do you want? Really, what do you want? The mentioned advance tape had a life itself it seemed, like a jinxed holy grail it mysteriously disappeared from my bag the same night I received it to early the next morning be found by my neighbour outside my door. I had the pleasure to meet the whole band (thats Hugo Randulv, Sofie Herner, Gustaf Dicksson, Dan Johansson and Matthias Andersson) a couple of weeks ago. In all honesty I cant really decide if it really was a pleasure, but an interesting gathering no matter what. Prepared with 20 questions, my ambition was to get a piece done for a Norweigan publication, a text focusing entirely on this new album and the peculiar aura around the whole collective. They choose the time and place, a bar some 30 minutes from the city centre which the taxi driver had a hard time locating at all. I arrived in a timely fashion but no one there of course except for a lady in her 70s firmly placed in front of a Jack Vegas machine. After 20 minutes all of them emerged from the kitchen behind the bar, all heavily into a discussion about some Christmas album. I spent about 5 hours with the band, but managed to get 0 answers to my well thought-out questions. Nothing to use at all, actually (if you don’t count the answer to my #14, Q: “Does a great combined record collection help when making an album together?”, A: “Yes.”). Nice people and all, but Hugos constant yapping about the best Sarah Records compilations and the similar rants on whatever-band-you-never-heard-of from New Zeeland from Matthias got a bit tedious after a while. Every attempt to steer the conversation at least somewhere near the masterpiece that is Det Finns Ett Hjärta Som För Dig resulted in more beers plus jokes and references I didnt get. What I did get, however, and that’s solely from letting this album become an integral part of my life and not so much from my few conversations with the band members, is that this is one of the most wonderful albums I’ve ever heard from Sweden. People will try hard to figure this one out in the future. A comment on a welfare system collapsing? Just a glimpse into the creators’ childhood memories of rainy summers cut-jumping back and forth to scenes of cases of 3.5% beer smashed on the concrete behind the Sibylla, neverending confirmation camps, virginities forever lost and trimmed mopeds disappearing in the morning fog? The letting go’s and the joys and the sorrows of it all. Who knows with these cats, what I have on my now much treasured tape is not necessarily even what will be on the actual album. For whatever its worth, I’m thankful for my brief encounter with this band and my only wish right now is that they one day will perform live." - Efraim F. Ponteus, May 1st 2017.

Artist: FLOWER TRAVELLIN BAND
Title: Satori
Format: LP
Label: Phoenix
Country: UK
Price: $23.00
2017 repress. Deluxe LP format; 180 gram pressing. "Reissue of the second Flower Travellin Band album, originally issued by Atlantic Records in Japan in 1971. Satori is a conceptual hard rock/psych album driven by Hideki Ishimas furious guitar licks which erupt and explode over the harmonic heart beat of the drums and bass. Yamanakas banshee-like vocal style turned him into an occidental Iggy Pop or Robert Plant while the band itself was rapidly becoming Japans answer to Led Zeppelin. Satori is a huge album in every way. From power chords to Eastern-tinged North African six-string freak-outs and crashing tom-toms, the band flexes its collective muscle from start to finish. In short, this is a real rock classic of the type they simply dont make any more." - Phoenix.

Artist: GEERKEN & JOHN TCHICAI, HARTMUT
Title: Hindukush Serenade
Format: LP
Label: Holidays
Country: Italy
Price: $26.00
"Remembering his old friend John Tchicai and the days when these live recordings were made, Hartmut Geerken says, "When John came to visit us in Afghanistan and in Greece, where we lived in the 70s and 80s, my wife, Sigi, had to extend his bed always with fruit boxes. His height didnt fit into a normal-sized bed as well as his musical dimensions were too far out to fit into the mainstream taste of the masses. It was wonderful to hike with him in the Hindukush mountains up the Salang Pass. Afghanistan was a very peaceful and hospitable country before the westerners destroyed this unique paradise." Every time Hartmut Geerken unveils one of the many tapes he recorded and archived in his extraordinary life, its an incredible gift. Listening to these tunes almost 40 years after they were recorded, especially in the moment when John Tchicai stops playing and start his wild high-pitched singing, will really make you feel dizzy. Recorded live on May 12, 1977 at the Goethe-Institut Afghanistan in Kabul." - Holidays.

Artist: HAINO, KEIJI/JIM OROURKE/OREN AMBARCHI
Title: Only Wanting to Melt Beautifully Away Is It a Lack of Contentment That Stirs Affection for Those Things Said to Be as of Yet Unseen
Format: LP
Label: Black Truffle
Country: Australia
Price: $21.00
"Begun as a one-off collaboration in 2009, the trio of Keiji Haino, Jim ORourke and Oren Ambarchi has now become a solid working group, refining its craft through a series of annual concerts at Tokyos legendary SuperDeluxe. Much of their recorded work has focused on their intense, ritualistic take on the rock power trio of electric guitar, bass and drums. Presenting the entire first set of the trios March 2013 concert at SuperDeluxe (the second set will follow on Black Truffle later this year), Only Wanting to Melt Beautifully Away Is It a Lack of Contentment That Stirs Affection for Those Things Said to Be as of Yet Unseen is their fifth release and blows the instrumental palette wide open for a single continuous piece focused on acoustic strings, synth, flute and percussion. Featuring one of Hainos most delicate and moving recorded vocal performances, the opening section of the record takes the form of a spare duet between ORourkes 12-string acoustic guitar and Hainos kantele (a Finnish variant of the dulcimer), behind which Ambarchi provides a hovering backdrop of wine glass tones. While on previous releases the listener has often sensed that Haino was firmly in the drivers seat, here ORourke takes center stage with an acoustic guitar performance that takes the lyricism of John Abercrombie or Ralph Towner and refracts it through the free improvisation tradition of his mentors Derek Bailey and Henry Kaiser. The atmosphere of meditative, abstracted song is reminiscent of some of Hainos greatest recordings, such as the legendary Live in the First Year of the Heisei volumes recorded with Kan Mikami. After this stunningly beautiful opening sequence, the performance moves organically through a number of episodes, including a dramatic central passage in which Haino moves to synth and drum machine, crafting a current of raw electricity that unfurls slowly over the gently pulsing foundations of Ambarchis cymbals and builds to heights of manic intensity. When Haino later turns to wooden flute, Ambarchi answers him with nimble hand-drummed percussion in a passage that calls to mind Don Cherrys liberated combination of free-jazz improvisation and non-Western musics. The trios move away from the power trio dynamic bespeaks a risk-taking and questing spirit that refuses to be satisfied with repeating past glories, and yet the organic, immersive flow of this single improvisation attests to the intuitive bond that has formed between them over the last five years. Exuding the signature mystery and emotion of Hainos greatest works, this release is perhaps the strongest statement yet from this acclaimed trio, and holds out a tantalizing promise for everyone hooked on their continuing exploration of those things said to be as of yet unseen. --Francis Plagne; Design by Stephen OMalley with high quality live shots by Ujin Matsuo and stunning artwork by Norwegian noise legend Lasse Marhaug." - Black Truffle.

Great early versions of classic Hurley songs such as Automatic Slim & the Fatboys, Drivin Wheel, Ghost woman Blues, Watchin the Show, and The Portland Water that come off for the most part better than later releases of these songs. Hurley is backed up by The Fatboys - not the rotund hip hop crew from the film Disorderlies, but rather a bunch of not so fat nice guys in Vermont who played mostly for the local dairy farmers. (Later they were known as Sheriff Mocus & the Deranged Cowboys) A laid back countryish album sure to please the hardcore Hurley fan and casual listener too. Deep and breezy.

"You could be sitting there wondering why Mississippi releases such a huge amount of records by Michael Hurley (this is our eighth). To put it as mildly as we can - Hurley is by and large one of the greatest song writers of all time and we consider it an important part of our mission to get the world aware of his awesome talent. Here we have Hurleys latest batch of home recordings and believe me when I say they are some of his best songs ever. Its unusual for a man 50 years into his recording career to come up with some of his greatest songs yet, but here tis. Hurley plays heart breakers solo with guitar and/or organ accompaniment, along with three tracks where he is joined by the beautiful voice of Jolie Holland. Some incredible new songs such as the eerie Alligator in the Water, the poignant and all too true Disaster at the Wheel, the utterly cosmic Corridor, the near avant garde Doin the Opossum, the stone cold intense You Got to Die and on and on. True geniuses are hard to come by, so wake on up and give this record a long hard listen. If it doesnt move you, then I dont know what will." - Mississippi

Title: Live At Sunrise Studios
Format: LP

Country: USA
Price: $27.00
"Sommor Records present a reissue of Kedamas Live At Sunrise Studios, originally released in 1976. Swiss heavy-prog/kraut monster, originally released as a private, hand-made edition of 200 copies. Long instrumental/experimental tracks fueled by mellotron, Hammond, MiniMoog, ripping distorted guitar, and heavy drums. Kedama came from St. Gallen in the north-eastern corner of Switzerland, near the Bodensee -- only a few kilometers from Germany and Austria. Their name was inspired by Ketama, Morocco, famous for its cannabis fields. They were amongst the first bands -- possibly the first -- to record at Etienne Conods legendary Sunrise Studios, using the "kunstkopf" artificial head system. Unfortunately, the lack of experience with this new system resulted in a slightly thin sound on the album. This reissue vastly improves the depth of the recording. Live At Sunrise Studios comprises four long instrumental tracks, two on each side of the LP. This is essential stuff, from the weird psych-funk of "Hwrlnzg" to the sitar-drenched "Improvisations". RIYL: King Crimson, Egg, Fusioon, Supersister, Jonesy, Gentle Giant, Tetragon, Siloah. Newly remastered sound; Includes insert with rare photos and liner notes by Alan Freeman (The Crack In The Cosmic Egg (1971)); Repro of a rare promotional booklet; Includes download card which features seven amazing bonus tracks taken from unreleased studio sessions (1973-77) and the compilation Perspectives (1975); Edition of 550 (numbered)." - Sommor.

Title: Processed Snippets: Congo Traditional 1952 & 1957
Format: LP
Label: Care Of Editions
Country: Germany
Price: $19.00
"Mike Kitchers Processed Snippets falls firmly into the category of new exotica, a music created from a very specific location that becomes placeless through abstraction. Kitcher reworks moments recorded from the SWP Records re-mastered release of Congo Traditional 1952 & 1957 (SWP 046LP, 2014), a collection of recordings by Hugh Tracey. Tracey, a pioneering documenter of traditional music across the continent of Africa was notable for the extent of his travels and the breadth of his work, as well as his technique of live mixing multi-instrumental tracks with a hand-held microphone. This method produces tracks that focus on specific instruments with a shifting of foreground and background. In his work he, aimed to reflect the listening experience in the field. Kitchers album reflects on Traceys process by limiting each track to a limited sample and using basic EQ-ing alongside only one software processor: IRCAMs "the scrub". He foreshortens the landscape, by zooming in onto moments of breath, the moment of the release of contact from the instrument, bursts of silence, or processed modifications that transform vocals into the echo of ivory horns. Within this magnified view, the richness of the original material is turned over and seen from an array of angles. Kitcher notes that "inflections, harmony, expression, and pulsing modulations all grab my attention, frequently expressed through voice, conical drums, luma pipes or lamellaphones, among other instruments." - Care of Editions.

The final 15 minutes are spent in duet with the Swiss percussionist Reto Weber, who was so inspired by McPhee he asked to sit in and did so with his quite extensive battery of drums. This record come from a year-long run during which McPhee recorded and released four very different, extremely wonderful solo records, of which only Tenor has ever been reissued on CD.

From the session side A was born and from the trios show in Belchertown, MA side B was born (recorded by Mike Barrett). Not for the weak willed, II, digs deep into extended improvisation and brings to mind Christensens previous work in Secret Treaties, Twisted Villages twisted trio Heathen Shame, or perhaps even touches of influence from Borbetomagus.

An experimental, musique concrete, sci-fi masterpiece, available for the first time since 1970. Originally recorded for Crea Sound Ltd., a sub-label of Louis Delacours Neuilly imprint, Musique Pour Le Futur finds the French composer, arranger, producer, possible time-traveler, and all around music library legend Nino Nardini experimenting with synthesizers, percussions, prepared piano, echo, and special effects. Fans of electronic oddities, eerie cinematic audio-landscapes, Piero Umiliani, or Bernard Parmegiani, will rejoice at this full-length musical adventure that could very well be the soundtrack for a film in which characters from a 70s Italian horror movie visit a distant (forbidden) planet from a 50s sci-movie. Its bizarre, hypnotizing, slightly spooky, always out-of-this-world, and goddamn brilliant. Nino Nardini, also known as Georges Teperino, had a very fruitful career in library music, much like longtime collaborator Roger Roger. He composed a very large amount of works for French and British libraries which continues to be featured in numerous programs (radio, TV, films) all around the world. His passion for electronic music experimentations began in the late 60s and kept going until the 80s.

“Bamboo present a reissue of the debut album by Annette Peacock & Paul Bley, Dual Unity, originally released in 1972. Annette Peacocks legacy may only just be courting recognition proper with the recent retrospective release of her solo debut Im The One (1972). Hailed as a pioneer and artistic genius by many, her debut album and predecessor to Im The One captures Peacock in her element alongside husband; Canadian jazz genius Paul Bley. Dual Unity is a landscape of aural vision captured on tape in 1970 during their first European tour. For 33 minutes and 21 seconds, the listener is absorbed by other spirits. Using Robert Moogs earliest synthesizers, Bley and Peacock apply the strategic use of silence to indicate its reflective nature with captivating results. Originally released in 1971, it is a statement of immensity through synthetic minimalism and a milestone in the avant-garde, free jazz movement. Personnel (in addition to Peacock and Bley performing on all tracks): Han Bennink - drums on "M.J." and "Gargantuan Encounter"; Mario Pavone - bass and Laurence Cook - drums on "Richter Scale" and "Dual Unity". Professionally re-mastered original sound recording with expansive liners, interviews and rare archival photos.” - Bamboo.

Title: Unknown Rains
Format: LP
Label: Hospital Productions
Country: USA
Price: $23.00
"A vinyl issue of Prurients Unknown Rains, originally released as a limited edition cassette in 2016. Utterly destructive and heart-wrenching power noise and catharsis from the don gorgon of Hospital Productions, making his first album confession since the release of the stunning Frozen Niagara Falls (2015). Taking almost 40 minutes to spell-out a litany of ills that mark up as classic, pain-saturated Prurient in contrast with the more layered, nuanced narrative and more complex production values of his last album, the set boots-off with the infernal backdraft and flagellating vox of the albums most succinct piece, "Let Your Mind Free (Whip The Corpse)". Sharp blasts of noise distortion conceal a forlorn Fernow vocal, like that classic Lynchian conceit of obscuring dialogue at the most crucial moment, perversely enhancing narrative through obstruction. Its a brilliant, disturbing, opener. Sore chord progressions and those same distanced vox crushed by needling distortion fill the nine minutes of "Before Rain Becomes Snow" with much emotional impact; revealing a sort of disturbed and buried shoegaze appeal that sounds like a Grouper x Prurient recording session from another dimension. However, the albums most captivating track comes with the gaping black-holer, "In The Ruins Of My Brother" -- where the distortion dissipates to the edges, allowing vast blooming bass flares and slithering high registers to wrap around the neck with a spacious, full-spectrum dominance that recalls Prurients Pleasure Ground (HOS 467LP) classic, before "Red Poppy Laughter" slips back into an opiated sort of naval-gazing noise bliss. Cut at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin. Edition of 500." - Hospital Productions.

Title: Jungle Black Magic And Highlands Green Sorcery
Format: LP
Label: Hospital Productions
Country: USA
Price: $23.00
"Released on vinyl for the time, Jungle Black Magic And Highlands Green Sorcery is the most substantial and disorientating release in the Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement vinyl series yet, clocking in at 40 minutes and deploying some of the most uncomfortably humid productions in Dominick Fernows arsenal. Jungle Black Magic marks the third in a series of first-time vinyl editions of early RSE material. It was originally released as a double cassette release in 2012 in an edition of 49. Stalking phantom apparitions and infrasonic illusions from the dankest sectors of his imagination, Fernow plays voodoo tricks on charred opener "The Case Of The Male Witch From Goroka" -- a tropical downer underpinned by larger than life sub-bass rumblings and what sound like field recordings of YouTube rainforest nightscapes rendered in abstract, digital form. "The Verdict Handed Down By A Kangaroo Court" furthers trance induction with a more tribal alignment of drums, before "For The Next Three Days There Was An Eerie Silence In The Village" ends the set with a completely bewildering alignment of synthetic sounds designed to play tricks on your senses; somewhere between a dark meditation aid and a reworked soundtrack to Predator (1987) -- the vibe exceptionally heatsick and paranoid. These pieces operate in paradoxical dimensions where the calls of exotic birds convey a denseness thats at odds with acres of negative space. It feels like standing in a deforested land at the edge of thick jungle, the effect is uncannily transportive; your mind constantly grappling with contrasting sensory triggers. How can something this ice cold also convey such suffocating heat? It makes for an incredible, pretty much unique listening experience; like fourth world ambience but in some kind of Lynchian above-the-convenience store dimension. Remastered by Paul Corley; Cut at Dubplates & Mastering. RIYL: Coil, Demdike Stare, Prurient, Brian Eno & Jon Hassells 1980 album Fourth World (GB 019CD/LP). Edition of 500." - Hospital Productions.

Artist: SOTELO, ROBERT
Title: Cusp
Format: LP
Label: Upset the Rhythm
Country: UK
Price: $21.00
"Robert Sotelo is the nom de plume of Andrew Doig, a 36-year-old serial musician originally from Peterborough. Andrews middle name is Robert, whilst Sotelo is his mothers maiden name. Using this alter ego hes been able to write and record the twelve songs that make up his debut solo record Cusp. Sotelo plays every instrument on the album and recorded and edited it with long-term friend John Hannon throughout 2016 at No Studios in Rayleigh, Essex. Sotelos verdant world of sound is at once intimate, choosing to build songs up from ambitious layers of instrumentation into miniature psych pop overtures of genuine sincerity of feeling. Very much grounded in that particular forward-facing strain of mid-60s rock that edged towards Sgt. Pepper, Sotelos music owes as much to Davies and McCartneys unashamed belief in melody as it does to the uncertainty and confusion that comes with mid-thirties existentialism. With Cusp, Sotelo has created a vast tapestry of songs that stand up and sound afresh. "Bring Back The Love" is a dream-swept ballad of expansive vocal refrains and pools of spidery guitar contemplation. "Marinade" is a song about having no money wrapped up in a hypnotic cycle of chiming bittersweet guitars and gentle keyboard blushes. "Bronte Paths" is another homespun wonder-pop moment, sounding more like a rediscovered gem than a contemporary song. Many of the tracks on Cusp deal with matters of imbalance in Sotelos life like when his North London flat fell into disrepair before being swallowed up by property developers ("Tenancy Is Up"). In fact, "Alan Keay Is Fit For Work" is directly drawn from his experiences in support work of a man he represented amid the recent benefits debacle. "Version" is a sublimely panoramic number about spending too much time trying to write songs on your own and how it affects your relationships. "Dr Parsley" is a complex song of hope rooted in an unsure present, its subtle use of percussion and sumptuous vocal helping to guide listeners. The album closes suitably with "Brother Youre Complicated" a piano-driven high note from the record, lush with choirs of voices and brushed drum flourishes. Cusp is about loss, recovery and delight in starting anew, finding out the future isnt just a continuation. Cover art by Daniel Sean Kelly. Comes on 180 gram transparent vinyl; Housed in matte-finish sleeve; Edition of 500." - Upset The Rhythm.

Artist: STALAG
Title: Secrets/Date Limite De Vente
Format: 7"
Label: Cameleon
Country: France
Price: $9.00
"Reissue of the very rare french single punk of 1981 by this group of Bordeaux. 300 copies."

"It all begins in the spring of 1978 when Kick, singer of Strychnine friend of Thierry (Heinenken at the time), presents him two of his friends, one bassist, other drummer: Richard Brousse and Jean de Rivière. Vincent "Tungstène" Simonacci, a student of Chinoi ( in the punk group Coral de la Teste-De-Buch) is recruited after working hard to impress his examiners.... According to legend, Beber, who had a superb bass that he had never played in his life, investigated the repertoire in a few days.

...In this destroy movement are the occasional punks, students of Archi and Fine Arts lovers of Andy Warhol, and the most authentic, more titillated of the castagne. The latter feed the darkest face of the group. Stalag becomes identifiable for institutions that call it "disturbance to public order". Some concerts are canceled in prevention. It is as much the excesses as the ultra-realism of the revolutionary message that make Stalag a historical group. " - excerpt from the book Bordeaux Rock(s) by Denis Fouquet (via Google Translate).

Artist: TENNISCOATS
Title: Music Exists Disc 3
Format: LP
Label: Alien Transistor
Country: Germany
Price: $19.00
"The third release in Alien Transistor and Tokyo-based label Afterhours series of four vinyl-only releases documenting the Tenniscoats four part masterpiece, Music Exists. Disc 3 was originally released on CD in 2016. Disc 3 reunites the couple with their old friends and colleagues, the Swedish musicians from Tape, and sees them concentrate once more on their very own language of making music, offering another collection of essential Tenniscoats songs. Tenniscoats have devoted followers all over the world, but their releases were always hard to find outside of Japan. Except for their album Tokinouta (2011), which saw a very limited run on vinyl, and the seminal Two Sunsets, their collaboration with the Pastels (and a small handful of 7"s), there were never any vinyl-releases, and also the CDs were hard to get for anyone who doesnt speak or read Japanese. In their 20 years, the band has collaborated with the Pastels, Jad Fair, Norman Blake, and others. This set of vinyl releases provides a chance to dive deep into the beautiful, unique world of the Tenniscoats and their opus magnum Music Exists. "It may even be their greatest ever music, essential plus" --Monorail Music, Glasgow. "Whatevers ailing you, Tokyos Tenniscoats have got something for that" --Boomkat, Manchester. The eventual Disc 4 release will come with a limited box, either for putting the other previously purchased three records in, or as a glorious four-LP package. Includes a double-sided fold-out insert." - Alien Transistor.

Artist: VANDERMARK,KEN/MATS GUSTAFSSON
Title: Verses
Format: CD
Label: Corbett Vs. Dempsey
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
2013 release. "Swedish saxophonist Mats Gustafsson and Chicago saxophonist and clarinetist Ken Vandermark have worked together extensively since the mid-1990s, in groups of their own and as members of the Peter Brötzmann Chicago Tentet. Oddly, they had never performed duo before March 2013, when they squared off at the Corbett Vs. Dempsey gallery. The result was a delirious journey through extended techniques, intimate improvisation, and full-throttle flame-throwing, with an emphasis on the more delicate, sensitive side. The CD presents the entire concert, all six pieces in the order they were performed. A pair of todays master improvisers, at the top of their game, in a free music summit built for two. Recorded at Corbett Vs. Dempsey, Chicago on March 24th, 2013, by David Zuchowski. Mixed by David Zuchowski; Cover image by John Sparagana; Photography by Jim Dempsey." - Corbett Vs.Dempsey.

"Verses is a paean to instantaneity. Quite surprisingly, this is the first time that longtime confederates Vandermark and Mats Gustafsson have played as a duo. But what comes across from the first note is the utter certitude of their playing. Theres never any question that each can make sense of whatever the other plays, and from this security comes the confidence to take some thrilling individual risks." - Bill Meyer, Downbeat (Nov. 2013).
