Artist: ASTOR
Title: Inland
Format: LP
Label: Kye
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Kye is proud to present Inland, the new LP by Clapton-based Astor. Advancing the cause of 2012s Alcor LP, Inland finds Mark Harwood and sometime collaborator Maja Larsson further complicating reason with dark and circuitous audio constructs. Taking its inspiration from Gerard Murnanes 1988 novel of the same name, Inland explores a personalized perception of space, both real and imagined, returning a fabricated dreamworld which teases logic and tricks the ear. Conceived with piano, bells, tapes, gong, autoharp, hammer, t.v., organ, and dry ice pellets, Inland cuts the face of expectation to expose a 10 part fractal sonic geography, governed by its own laws, and flushed with all the beauty and horror of the natural world. Inland arrives in a full color, high gloss sleeve, in an edition of 400 copies." - Kye.

Artist: CLAY RENDERING
Title: Vengeance Candle
Format: LP
Label: Hospital Productions
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"Clay Rendering is a new band born of Aries couple Mike (Wolf Eyes, Hair Police, Failing Lights) and Tara Connelly (the Haunting and The Pool at Metz). The two began work on the project in the fall of 2012, dedicated to resurrection, (much like their sun signs) with a focus on arcane structures. Droning and melancholic guitars are propelled by the skeletal remains of industrial music. Low light vocals weave in and out of the stark atmosphere. Electronics mix with acoustics, vocals and guitar to create songs inspired by last days. Mastered by Russell Haswell. Edition of 500." -Hospital.

Artist: CLAY RENDERING
Title: Waters Above the Firmament
Format: 12
Label: Hospital Productions
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
“This second EP from Mike and Tara Connellys Clay Rendering further evolves their songcraft through four pieces that draw you in with a slowly building emotive weight. The tracks here recall everything from Cocteau Twins and The Cranes at their most desolate to classic Sonic Youth, colored and mis-shaped through abstract production assistance fromDominick Fernow and additional synth from Robert Beatty of Three Legged Race/Hair Police.” - Hospital Productions.

Artist: COPELAND, ERIC
Title: Logo My Ego
Format: 12"
Label: Lies
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"A perfect candidate for L.I.E.S., Black Dice figurehead Eric Copeland follows the trajectory of his Post Present Medium and DFA sessions to some of his strongest dancefloor gear on Logo My Ego. His loops are still sloppier than yer nanas sunday lunch but feel as though hes maybe given the carrots a trim especially for this platter. The five tracks bear a very similar approach to $hit & $hines diesel-stained No wave disco (kinda kicking myself for not noticing that before), from the loose disco smut of Logo My Ego and the bouncing, sweltering psych chug of Uncle Sams Blues and over to the breakbeat fonk extrusion of Trophy Nuts and the dirgey sway of Workin. Flashes of brilliance mixed with glimpses of utter rot makes for a turbulent trip to say the least."

Artist: COUNTER INTUITS
Title: S/T
Format: LP
Label: Pyramid Scheme
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
counter intuits coverCounter Intuits = Ron House (Great Plains, Thomas Jefferson Slave Apartments, Psandwich, etc) and Jared Phillips (Times New Viking). Repressed with standard printed jackets. "Its Jared Phillips from Times New Viking backing up Ron House on vocals. If youre not sold on that, then I cant help you, but the two of them comport themselves with taste and the expected grasp on post-punk history and interesting instrumentals, driven in circular circuits of maddening familiarity to The Fall and Alternative TV. Ron croons “do you know anyone with a computer?” and I once again am convinced that he is the hidden secret genius of our times. Everything about this record and the music within (Phillips first post-TNV outlet, where his ideas run with of an arty complexity and smarmy folk demeanor that really suits his personality) is most highly recommended…" - Doug Mosurock, Still Single.

Artist: FRISBEE, EMMETT
Title: Sound Paintings: Soon To Be A Major Film
Format: LP
Label: Street Level
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
Sealed, original copies of this 1980 release. “Emmett Frisbee used to travel the country entering Hoagy Carmichael look-alike contests. He was never a winner, though once he was one of the ten finalists.
Discouraged, penniless and having turned vegetarian, Emmett decided one Thanksgiving over his bowl of cold oatmeal to make music his career. Life took an immediate upward swing. Today, Emmett Frisbee owns a tuned piano and two pairs of shoes. He is the father of two children and doubles on sax.
Though he plays a gig here and there, mostly for House-of-Toast Fast Food Restuarant closings, Emmmett whiled away most of the summer fashioning this totally ridiculous collection of absurd sounds, hoping to pawn it off to his friends under the guise of an "album."
It IS original, no doubt about it. Every cluster of chords, run of notes, refreshing pauses (if only there were more…) and chains of melodies poured from the creative cranium of one Emmett Frisbee. However it is still unclear why he chose to originally title this album The Best of Gladys Knight and the Pips. The album has been retitled Sound Paintings.” – Donna Tabor, Sound Paintings album notes.

“Conceived by “Pedestrian Saxophonist,” Emmett Frisbee of Pittsburgh, and “soon to be a major film”, Sound Paintings is pretty much everything you could possibly want from a 1980 soundtrack to an avant garde movie that exists only in the head of it’s author. Bugged out fusion, field recordings of trains and typewriters, intense synth experiments, solo lounge piano and an almost keytar-ish tribute to jimi hendrix (!!). He’s even backed by a pretty formidable band of pittsburgh sessioners including Larry McGee & Kenny Blake.” - Waxidermy.

Artist: GATE/CARTER, TOM
Title: Split
Format: 7
Label: Carbon
Country: USA
Price: $9.00
"For those who dont know, Gate is Michael Morleys (of The Dead C) solo project. His side is a mesmerizing track, consisting of distortion washed guitar over a slap-back drum machine rhythm track, ending with a super... super, low end rumble. Tom Carter, of the Charalambides, contributes a guitar (?) layered masterpiece. I can only assume its guitar, but at times it sounds like synth/keyboard, or even bagpipes. Seemingly random patterns, all fall into place to create a beautiful, melodic, textural drone composition. [Packaged in a 2-color silkscreened Stumptown press fold-together kraft sleeve. Digital download coupon included. Random colored vinyl. Limited to 313 copies.]" -Carbon.

Artist: HEITKOTTER, STEPHEN DAVID
Title: Black Orckid
Format: LP
Label: Now-Again
Country: USA
Price: $23.00
Single LP version (not including the deluxe versions "bonus LP"). Includes a 16-page booklet. "Psychedelic rock record collectors have been repeating the name Heitkotter as if it were a mantra ever since the first copy of a hand-made demo LP turned up in a Los Angeles music publishers reject bin, with nothing more than that word scrawled across a plain white jacket. Now-Again Records embarked some years ago on what seemed like a fruitless crusade -- to find out more about this Heitkotter, his music, his story. In the process, weve visited the house where this confounding album was recorded, found Heitkotters musicians, rescued the demo-recordings that paved the way for this album, uncovered unpublished photos and paintings by the man behind the album, and are now ready to present the definitive look into a musical vision equal parts dangerous and peaceful, nihilistic and optimistic. Its safe to say the world has never heard something like Heitkotter -- it is a unique piece of art unlike anything that came before or has come after it. The bizarre LP known as Heitkotter -- recorded in around 1971 and pressed in a run of less than twenty five copies -- was the culmination of one Stephen David Heitkotters artistic career. Ross Dwelle, Stephens childhood friend and the drummer on the record, describes the bedroom sessions in a handsome Craftsman home in Old Fresno as this young trio trying to play five songs written by a man losing his mind... probably stoned the whole time. Heitkotter, this time issued as Black Orckid, as we assume Stephen would have wanted it -- is too complicated to be written off as a symptom of a greater ill, or lionized by a few (and dismissed by the majority) as outsider art. Its a rare and vital look at 60s and 70s American rock through the sad story -- and incredible music -- of an untethered soul. And as we hope to show in enlightening more of Stephens backstory, it can also be considered sweet, kind and optimistic. The Heitkotter tale is cautionary, but Stephens music is as close to the sublime as American rock has ever ventured." - Now-Again.

Artist: HEYBOER, ANTON
Title: Rules of the Universe
Format: Double LP
Label: Kye
Country: USA
Price: $24.00
"Kye is proud to announce the release of Rules Of The Universe, a fully authorized anthology of archival audio work by the renowned Dutch artist Anton Heyboer (1924-2005). Heyboers stature in visual arts is well known and internationally celebrated, but documentation of his audio work is scant and difficult to locate. Heyboers only previous vinyl release - 1976s ill-fated She And She As One LP (EMI) introduced a music so resolutely personal and uncommercial in nature that EMI ordered the unsold bulk of the pressing withdrawn and destroyed. Further recordings of Heyboers anomalous music eventually trickled out via a string of private press micro-edition CDs/CDRs through the Anton Heyboer Foundation in the 1990s. Released with full approval from VOF Heyboer and overseen by Lotti Heyboer, Rules Of The Universe draws from over seven hours of surviving archival tapes, restoring the cream of the CDR editions and supplementing it with a selection of previously unheard tracks. Rules Of The Universe offers a fresh reappraisal of a lesser-known - but no less important field of creativity from one of the 20th Centurys most original artistic minds. Rules Of The Universe arrives in a full color high gloss gatefold sleeve, with an accompanying fold-out color poster, in an edition of 500 copies." -Kye.

Artist: LEMAIRE, DANIELLE
Title: Dear Mr. Lynch
Format: CD
Label: Inner Landscapes
Country: Netherlands
Price: $29.00
Edition of 100. “In a beautiful exclusive handmade box with embroidary on top (made in China) and photobook of people at the beach, Xiamen, 2010. Artist Jim Shaw bought a copy of dear mr.Lynch for his wife, artist Marnie Weber, in 2013.” - Danielle Lemaire.

Artist: LEMAIRE, DANIELLE
Title: Kill Your Darlings... Not!
Format: Cass
Label: Barreuh
Country: Netherlands
Price: $14.00
Edition of 50. “Its not very often we review a cassette with no less than fifty-five songs on them, but heres one, and each one is mentioned on the cover. In a way one could perhaps see this as a companion release to The Vaults, a double 10″ released by Danielle Lemaire and Jan van den Dobbelsteen (which was reviewed in Vital Weekly 949, and for which I got a mild slap on the wrist: I hadnt mentioned the cover. The cover of that double 10″ looks great, printed by Knust in Nijmegen on their riso machines and has a great naive charm, which adds to the music), as these fifty-five pieces are from roughly 2003 to 2014 and are short, sketch like, with Danielle Lemaire mostly using her voice, telling stories, singing, whispering, moaning and whatever else; sometimes she plays her trademark percussion (xylophones mostly), organ and whatever she else can use. Its all very small and intimate music, almost like a poetry release. Obviously (?) I lost my way while playing this and looking at the track list; it acted in the end more as an endless, unconscious stream of sounds, words, music, and environments. Comes with a nice cover too!” - Vital Weekly.

Artist: LEMAIRE, DANIELLE
Title: Lucia Pamela: The Story of a Document Humain
Format: Book + CD
Label: Inner Landscapes
Country: Netherlands
Price: $15.00
Edition of 250. “In 1998 Danielle Lemaire got to know the music and drawings of Lucia Pamela (United States, 1904-2002). She felt an immediate affinity with Pamelas -relatively unknown- work. Since then Danielle Lemaire works on a comprehensive project around this eccentric lady – including a documentary film (85 minutes), photographs, films, drawings, music, audio-and book publications and a comprehensive archive of correspondence-and research materials.

Lucia Pamela, entertainer,outsider artist, first woman on the moon and Miss St.Louis in 1927, was leader of one of the first female swingbands in the 1920s and 30s in the South of the United States and made the album Into Outer Space With Lucia Pamela in 1969.

The music and songs on this LP are about Lucias trip to the moon and are recorded there. The LP (label Gulfstream Records) in the meantime has become a rare collectors item.

Danielle Lemaire researched the progression and production of this wonderous album and the remarkable life of Lucia Pamela. Amongst those Danielle Lemaire received support from Pamelas grandson, Hollywood filmmaker, Dale Rosenbloom. He commissioned Lemaire to make a documentary on his grandmother when he noticed the flourishing friendship between Lemaire and Pamela.

Danielle met Pamela several times, befriended her and her “American Dream” family, who are owners of the football team The St.Louis Rams. This was a unique entrance into the life Lucia Pamela and her family-that otherwise would have remained closed.” - Inner Landscapes.

Artist: LEMAIRE, DANIELLE
Title: Traces in Waste
Format: CD
Label: Inner Landscapes
Country: Netherlands
Price: $19.00
2013 release, edition of 100.

“Layered varieted songs, some influenced by indonesian gamelan and chinese opera and ninety-seventees new age. Some life recordings. ... Dreamy, outspinning, passionate, dead honoust, layered songs.” - Danielle Lemaire.

“Already inside music and art for many years now, I do happen to know Danielle Lemaire pretty well, so she tells me about a lot of her activities. From all the musicians reviewed in the weeklies, there are very few I see on a regular basis, but Miss Lemaire is one. I do know she is in part of Indonesian background and that music and drawing are her main activities. In music, since that is what we are dealing with in Vital Weekly, Lemaire uses voice, small keyboards, percussion and it all has a very personal character. The songs she sings are small and intimate, not always being in tune. That gives her music a slightly outsider like character, but believe me: she is hardly an outsider, and someone who knows what she is doing. On this new release it seems that world music (for the lack of a better word) seems to have an important place. Gamelan like percussive sounds, the Vietnamese music from a sampling project earlier this year and influences from Chinese opera. Although I quite enjoy this, I must be honest: I particularly like the instrumental pieces, such as the largely instrumental Bricks From The Balcony, or the wordless Set Me Free, the long ambient piece of Licht!, or the nasty harmonium of Schaduwtrein. When its all the more obvious singing and playing keyboards, its something Im not that interested in. But as said, this is all highly subjective and highly personal. Not just this reviewers opinion, but also the way Lemaire approaches her music. That is something one either likes very much or not at all. I walk a thin line between that; difficult, but the more experimental pieces proof its possible. Great looking digipack actually, very professionally made!” - Vital Weekly.

Artist: NOBLE, LEE
Title: Darker Half
Format: LP
Label: Black Moss
Country: Italy
Price: $16.00
"An album composed of four long ritualistic drone lullabies, “Darker Half” sounds like the music in the mind of a feverish 13 year-old kid who fell asleep with the TV on, transmitting horror movies and national geographic documentaries about remote tribal ceremonies. Dirty vintage blue cover print by an old 70’s Deutsch printing-press on havana matte paper. First Lee Noble album originally released on cassette on Bathetic Records in 2010." - Black Moss.

Artist: O LEVEL
Title: Pseudo Punk
Format: LP
Label: Munster
Country: Spain
Price: $22.00
“RSD 2014 release. Munster Records presents, in a co-release with Discos Alehop!, the first vinyl reissue of the two official singles of British band O Level: "East Sheen" (recorded in November 1977 and released on Psycho) and The Malcolm EP (recorded in December 1978 and released by the Kings Road label). This compilation also includes three tracks from February 1979 never released on vinyl before, plus a rawer alternative version of "East Sheen" dating from March 1978. O Level was created in 1976 by London guitarist Ed Ball along with two friends from school, the Bennett brothers (John on drums and Gerard on bass), who would leave the band in March 1978. That same line-up plus Dan Treacy (another school friend of Balls) recorded the first Television Personalities single in 1977, titled 14th Floor. O Level self-released that same year a first single which included three tracks strongly influenced by punks energy (Buzzcocks and Undertones guitars and melody on "East Sheen") and attitude (with ironic comments about fake punks on "Pseudo Punk"), but all of it as if seen from a distance, outside a decadent scene which had already been absorbed by the establishment. The single also features a sort of homonymous anthem called O Levels." As a record collector anecdote, there are two versions of the single with different covers, which go for very high prices. Ed Ball, DIY superhero, returned in late 1978 with four more hits, displaying a sound more oriented towards 60s pop but with the new wave spirit of the time. On this occasion, he was accompanied on bass, drums, and backing vocals by... himself, Ball played everything! The single, titled The Malcolm EP, contains a new hit in "homage" to Malcolm McLaren, "We Love Malcolm"; a portrait of the scene, "Everybodys on Revolver Tonight" (where the pseudo punks and part-time punks make another appearance); and two tracks with 60s melodies: "Leave Me Alone" (with a very Love-esque chorus) and "Stairway to Boredom" (pure new wave sound). But Ed Balls music career didnt end with this second single. After recording three more tracks in February 1979, which have never been released on vinyl until now, he continued developing the same strand of wonderful pop through the 80s and 90s with bands such as Teenage Filmstars, Television Personalities, The Times, and many more, ending with four records as a solo artist. O Level was Ed Ball, a passionate pop artisan who deserves to be rediscovered.” - Munster.

Artist: ROSSETTO, VANESSA
Title: Whole Stories
Format: LP
Label: Kye
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
“Kye is proud to present Whole Stories, the brand new LP by Vanessa Rossetto, and her third for the label following Mineral Orange (2010) and Exotic Exit (2012). Like its predecessors Whole Stories takes as its clay the sounds gathered from commonly found habitual environments, reshaping them into two extraordinary new long form compositions. This Is A Recorder enumerates the colorful events of a drunken birthday weekend lost to Mardi Gras, New Orleans between Feb 8th-13th 2013. Localized field recordings and conversational excerpts are combined with violin/electronics and processed into a detail-rich diaristic plateau that perfectly captures the heady climate of the source. Whole Stories by contrast, examines the dichotomy of luck verses agency, employing as its basic material the roseate whirl of a casino hall as backdrop to a slowly unfolding narrative that reflects on a life ravaged by disappointment and woe. Mastered by Graham Lambkin at Empty Stage Studios, Whole Stories arrives in a full color Matthew Revert-designed sleeve, with complimentary innerbags/labels in an edition of 400.” - Kye.

Title: Live at the New Morning, Geneva, Switzerland, 18.05.1989
Format: LP
Label: Mental Groove
Country: Switzerland
Price: $22.00
Second pressing (regular cardboard edition). "We all know and love Spacemen 3. Mental Groove have been exchanging this recording for 30 years and thought it was about time to release it properly. So instead of dealing with the impossible task of finding the words to describe how amazing this record is, lets just hear what Sonic Boom has to say about the release: "I seem to remember this show more distinctly than most, and always did. Spacemen 3 was a band not overly loved in their day. It was tough, or at least uneasy. Musically people thought we were some sort of twisted joke. Which in some ways we were. You needed to be bloody-minded to make this music at that time. The set presented here, is as it was .... except the show was twice this length. We tuned and smoked for almost as long as we played. And then our disenfranchise moment, installed to filter the wheat from the chaff in our audiences -- the sprawling SUICIDE wheeled out here in a long, mischievous version. We slipped away mid-song amongst much fog and dry ice. With taped-down keys and feeding-back guitars propped against our speaker cabs, keeping the song pulsating and screaming. Disappearing back down to the already too-familiar dressing room. We rolled large smokes and cracked fresh drinks. And finally after an extended break, re-appeared on stage. Not to wind down as normal at that juncture, but to re-fire up the piece for a further onslaught. Extending the maelstrom as bloody-mindedly as we could. We always sensed when we were unwanted .... which was most the time we left the cozy confines of our white sprinter van. Never get out of the van .... fucking tigers! But then again .... maybe .... just maybe .... and its only a maybe .... maybe I dont remember a thing." --Sonic Boom, 2014; Recorded from the mixing desk. Includes liner notes by Sonic Boom." - Mental Groove.
