Title: Cofradia Nautica
Format: LP
Label: Kye
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
“Kye is proud to present “Cofradia Nautica” the debut LP by Chiles Glorias Navales, and the follow-up to 2015s “Carta a Maureen Tucker” cassette on ETCS. "Glorias Navales is a band based in Santiago, Chile, who combine local folk traditions and paganism with a post-Velvets aesthetic. Imagine Lou Reed, John Cale and Violeta Parra together, doing late night acoustic lo-fi trance jams in a rural area of Chile." (Ivan Daguer)  Drawn from live concert tapes recorded at BYM Records, and recordings made in the bands private practice space “Cofradia Nautica” offers a raw, unvarnished walkway straight into heart the of the contemporary Chilean underground. “Cofradia Nautica” arrives in a full-color matte stock sleeve with printed innersleeves, mastered by Jason Lescalleet, in an edition of 400.” - Kye.

Artist: VERNON, MARK
Title: Lend an Ear, Leave a Word
Format: LP
Label: Kye
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Kye is proud to present “Lend an ear, leave a word” the new LP from Glasgows Mark Vernon. "The pieces composed for this album combine field recordings of contemporary Lisbon with found tape recordings from the past;  reel-to-reel tapes, micro-cassettes and Dictaphones collected from the Feira de Ladra market, a popular and lively flea market in the Alfarma district. Each tape recording is an audio snapshot of a specific time; a family album in sound, a musical performance, a compilation of treasured music, or even just the fun of playing around with a tape recorder captured for posterity. Every thoughtless edit or push of the record button teleports us to a different time and place. The musical material extracted from the tapes is also an evocative signifier  that locates it within a specific era. The interesting thing is how the tapes accumulate different strata of time even within a single side.There are consecutive chronological recordings but also sequences with unexpected breakthroughs where the user has carelessly fast-forwarded through the tape, randomly ‘dropping-in’ new recordings. These accidental edits create instantaneous new collages of sounds and voices.  I have endeavoured  to retain the essence of these unintentional edits and unexpected outbursts in the pieces I have assembled here. The noisy whir and clicking of the various tape mechanisms is evident on many of the found recordings. As the material is sped up and slowed down it acts as an internal clock, a continuous, steady marker of time, almost like the second hand of a timepiece. All of the pieces contained here within explore one particular environment - the city of Lisbon. Field recordings by their very nature are time-based but the introduction of found tapes into the mix expands the time-scale of these studies from just the short period spent in the city making recordings, backwards to possibly forty or more years in the past. It is a portrait in time *and* place, an archeology of sound. The result of the audio flotsam and jetsam washed up on the shores of low commerce in the flea markets of Lisbon." (Mark Vernon) “Lend an ear, leave a word” arrives in a full color matte stock sleeve with insert and download card that features additional pieces left off the LP due to time constraints. Mastered by Jason Lescalleet in an edition of 400." - Kye.
