Title: 2
Format: LP
Label: S-S
Country: USA
Price: $26.00
"The A Frames second album -- appropriately titled 2 -- is the classic followup to their stellar debut. Influenced by their heroes Wire, the A Frames were not content to make their sophomore full-length a copycat of their first. Instead, they took their post-punk-cum-KBD / garage sound and expanded and twisted it. Recorded in a weekend by Chris Woodhouse, it is one of the best albums of the 00s. Finally, someone has released a worthy followup to Gang of 4s Entertainment, wrote Go Metric. Blank Generation countered with You can throw all the Gang of Four / Fall / Wire references you want at this band, but all I can say is that the A Frames are quite simply creating some of the most captivating sounds around. Their second fulllength is even weirder than the first, adhering to the robot-wave construction of their first record, but tinkering with the formula enough to keep it sounding new.... These guys have put themselves yet another step or two ahead of the crowd with a record that may even be better than their first. Maximum Rocknroll said, this sucker is flat-out classic... [Woodhouse] is starting to look like the Trademark of Quality for raw artgarage. Roctober cooed, Though it seems impossible for robots to have souls this is basically the lost, brilliant, organic Kraftwerk LP (where they added guitars). This is so futuristic it makes my vision hurt. The original 2003 vinyl pressing of 2 sold out in three months. S-S Records let it go out of print, but, like with the first album, the label has often been asked the question Are you ever going to release it again? The answer is: Yes!"" - S-S.

"Originally released in 2002, the A Frames debut album was a sleeper. That is hard to believe today, as the record has been called one of the few great new American rock records (Byron Coley and Thurston Moore, Arthur), the best American rock record Ive heard since 100 Flowers (Jon Solomon, WPRB), and a truly amazing record made by a truly amazing band with a truly amazing sound (Mitch Cardwell, Blank Generation). But back when it came out, people were slow to pick up on it. In 2002, S-S Records was still a young un, Seattle was recovering from a decade of grunge-commercialism, and punk rock had settled into a steady 1-2-3-4 count. The A Frames post-post-post punk, with its high energy angles and primitive smarts, was a bit new to the ears. A few people dug their first two singles, but most folks werent quite ready for a garage punk attack on Wire, Devo and Joy Division... or so they thought. As more and more people heard the A Frames debut, more and more became diehard fans. The record started to get rave reviews and make year-end Best Of lists. Those skeptical of the hype listened to the record and found that the praise was well-founded (Its rare to have an album this solid from top and bottom without an ounce of fluff or duff -- it is deserving of any accolades heaped upon it, Jack Cole, Pataphysics Research Journal). Even with universal props, it took more than a year to sell out of the single vinyl pressing of 500. In another two years, though, the record started fetching good money on auction and record selling sites. It has now been thirteen years since A Frames A Frames was first released and demand has not slackened. Though long out-of-print, S-S Records still gets requests from fans to repress it. So here it is!" - S-S.

Artist: AMM
Title: AMMMusic
Format: LP
Label: Black Truffle
Country: Australia
Price: $21.00
First vinyl reissue of the landmark 1967 debut album by AMM,AMMMusic. Remastered and cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin. Exact replica sleeve by Stephen OMalley. "Coinciding with the 50th anniversary of its recording in 1966, this reissue makes one of the cornerstones of the experimental music tradition available again in its original form, replete with Keith Rowes beautiful pop art cover and the terse aphorisms by the group that served as its original liner notes. A testament to the interaction between the experimental avant-garde and the countercultural underground, the album was originally released on Elektra, recorded by Jac Holzman (the labels founder, responsible for signing The Doors, Love, and The Stooges) and produced by DNA, a group that included Pink Floyds first manager, Peter Jenner (the title of Pink Floyds “Flaming” is a tribute to AMMs “Later During a Flaming Riviera Sunset”). Formed in 1965 by three players from the emerging British jazz avant-garde -- Keith Rowe and Lou Gare had played with the great progressive big band leader Mike Westbrook and Eddie Prévostplayed in a post-bop group with Gare -- AMM quickly evolved from a free jazz group into something decidedly more difficult to categorise. By the time these recordings were made, two more members had joined the group: another Westbrook associate, Lawrence Sheaff, and the radical composer Cornelius Cardew. Then at work on his masterpiece of graphic notation Treatise, Cardew brought with him extensive experience of the post-serialist and Cageian currents in contemporary composition. Using a combination of conventional instruments and unconventional methods of sound production (most famously Keith Rowes prepared tabletop guitar, but also prepared piano and transistor radio), the group performed improvised pieces often running for over two hours and ranging from extended periods of silence to terrifying cacophonies. OnAMMMusic, long tones sit next to abrasive thuds, the howl of uncontrolled feedback accompanies Cardews purposeful piano chords, radios beam in snatches of orchestral music. AMMs clearest break with jazz-based improvisation concerned the idea of individuality. Initially through an engagement with eastern philosophy and mysticism and later though a politicized communitarianism, AMM sought to develop a collective sonic identity in which individual contributions could barely be discerned. In the performances captured on AMMMusic the use of numerous auxiliary instruments and devices, including radios played by three members of the group, contribute to the sensation that the music is composed as a single monolithic object with multiple facets, rather than as an interaction between five distinct voices." --Francis Plagne.

Title: At the Roundhouse
Format: CD
Label: Anomalous
Country: USA
Price: $14.50
"The International Carnival of Experimental Sound, or ICES 72 for short, was an ambitious festival sprung from the mind of Harvey Job Matusow (1926-2002). Jumping off from his associations with the influential Source magazine, Harvey brought together over 300 artists from more than 21 countries to perform in London, England over the course of two weeks in August of 1972. Based on the theme of Myth, Magic Madness and Mysticism, he assembled an amazing diversity of performers working in diverse range of audio-visual arts. Encompassing happenings, films, dance, a train ride, and the phantom soft pool table, the focus was on sound -- specifically that of artists who were both composers and performers. Most of the concerts were held at The Roundhouse, a cavernous structure that was formerly a railroad engine house. Now, for the first time in 30 years, these recordings can be heard. This first CD in a series documenting the festival features the complete concert given by legendary free improvising group AMM. Represented here by Eddie Prevost and Lou Gare, they offer up powerful explosions of saxophone and drums punctuated with their famous AMM silences . This is the first time this material is available, aside from two short excerpts were published as the only 7" release on Evan Parker and Derek Baileys Incus Records (and a very rare and desirable record that has become)." - Anomalous.

Title: Mono-Types
Format: LP

Price: $25.00
"An obscure rarity from St. Louis! Decent to really good punky pop rock and sorta Paisley Underground-ish sounds. The band was led by Tony from the Camaros who were one of the first-wave Punk bands from the area. They had Mike Yaffe who was between his stints in Max Load and Bob Leach who was in Trained Animal (Test Patterns comp) and the infamous MRR-baiting White Pride. The drummer is Mike Doskicil, who was also in White Pride and the front man for sludge-core legends Drunks With Guns. Of course, this doesnt sound like any of those bands. The record was never issued in a cover. A few may have been sold in blank jackets, but most (probably all) without any jacket at all. 500 copies were pressed, but according to the band, as many as a couple hundred were tossed out or damaged in storage. They made an 8 1/2" x 14" piece of art with titles/info which was printed on red construction paper. The record was never distributed outside the St. Louis area, and less than 100 were sold when the band was active. Most probably came with the art work but many of those probably never survived the trip home after a gig. Some copies were later sold at local reunion gigs and other events, but the record is still virtually unknown outside of St. Louis. Almost every other copy of the art work was used for the blank backside for set lists, scratch paper or even lost in moves or just tossed out. We estimate that only 100-150 copies at most actually received the art, including any copies sold in recent years. We first learned about the record in 2000, and of the 10-12 copies weve seen in used bins or private collections since, weve only encountered a couple with the original art. We obtained the last remaining copies of the original, unplayed vinyl from the band. Weve housed them in a blank white jacket and made high quality (and now larger 11" x 17") reprints of the original artwork." -Rerun.

The teenage home recordings of NRBQs Tom Ardolino from 1971. "I made these tapes in my basement...I was 17, still two years away from joining NRBQ.....I had some friends who would come to the basement at night and we would smoke and listen to records. They would leave around midnight and I would start to record one track over another using the(Kenwood reel to reel) recorders Sound On Sound feature. I would add drums the next day....Sometimes I would try to do songs that I just felt like doing(like the Nutty Squirrels "Zowee"...) but usually things were just made up. I would just kind of hear things in my head and just try to go for it...I never thought these tapes would be heard by anyone except for a few friends.

Artist: BAUMANN/KOEK
Title: s/t
Format: CD
Label: Bureau B
Country: Germany
Price: $18.00
"Baumann/Koek is another hitherto undiscovered treasure of German electronic music, the only album by the electronic music pairing of Wolfgang Baumann and Ata Koek, both from Kempten, Bavaria, Germany. It was mixed in Conny Planks studio and distributed, without a label, by the duo themselves in 1978. The music owes much to the Berlin School; layered sequencer patterns, swirling chord tapestries, a computer beat here and there. Eastern elements or hints thereof add a particular charm to Baumann/Koek, reissued here for the first time. Rumors persist that Peter Baumann of Tangerine Dream is behind the Baumann/Koek project. But in actual fact, Baumann/Koek can unequivocally be identified as Wolfgang Baumann (no, not the MPS Records cover artist), born in Kempten in 1950, and his friend Ata Koek (Köktürk, to be precise), born in Istanbul in 1956. In their mid-20s, the pair made the trip from Kempten to Bonn with the singular aim of visiting the legendary Synthesizerstudio Bonn, the very same store where Kraftwerk and countless other electronic icons went shopping for their equipment. They purchased a secondhand ARP 2600, began experimenting, and realized that they needed more gear. Before long they had added an ARP sequencer, a Solina String keyboard, and an EKO Compurhythm drum computer to their arsenal. Last but not least, they acquired a four-track recorder and were ready to commit their music to tape, before going to the expense of booking Conny Planks studio for the mix. They pressed up 1000 LPs and paid the production costs themselves. The album was well-received and the Swabian wholesaler Jaguar Records stepped in for worldwide distribution, but unfortunately went bankrupt shortly afterward. Baumann and Koek were disinclined to take on any further financial risk and decided against a follow-up record. The music clearly references the Berlin School, with a hypnotic maelstrom of sequencer patterns and swirling tapestries of mostly minor chords, underpinned at times by a computer beat. What really sets the music apart from comparable productions is the subtle influence of Arabian tonality, which saw Koek consciously introduce just a hint of Eastern flavor. If Baumann and Koek considered their "modest" equipment to be a hindrance, their music sounded all the better for it. There is a raw, unpolished quality to the tracks, a clarity that draws the listener closer, far more so than the bombastic productions of contemporaries like Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze, et al." - Bureau B.

Artist: BEAT OF THE EARTH
Title: This Record Is an Artistic Statement
Format: LP
Label: Radich
Country: USA
Price: $24.00
"Two foundational documents of American private-press psychedelic rock emerge from decades-long shadows, deeply illuminated chapters authored by prototypical "terminally unique" Southern California artist/seeker Phil Pearlman and two of his early, briefly extant bands.
From 1967, Phil Pearlman (The Electronic Hole (RAD 002LP) and the majestic Relatively Clean Rivers (ASH 3007CD)) leads a free assemblage of local Southern California acid-heads through loping Velvetica tribal incantations. The Beat of the Earth earns its name in two side-length jams brimming with eastern-tinged luminosity. It is the sun-dappled mirror of The Velvet Undergrounds "Sister Ray." Instead of the urban decay and black and white pop art of the Warhol scene, The Beat of the Earth represents the same idea, looking west across the Pacific. This comes from the same yet intrinsically polar opposite frame of mind from the VU noise marathons of their epic live shows. Mind-expanding psychedelia done by sun-gobbed hippies that were totally out of step with everything else happening in Southern California of the pop-psych 60s. This record stands as much an outsider statement as ESP-Disks Cromagnon record (ESPDISK 2001CD/LP), or any of the Swedish bands of the Silence stable. It is a truly zonked masterpiece of tribal hippy culture dosed to the gills! Limited edition of 300." - Radich.

Artist: BISHOP, SIR RICHARD & AVA MENDOZA
Title: Ivory Tower (Hanuman)
Format: LP
Label: Unrock
Country: Germany
Price: $27.00
“The third installment in Unrocks string-related Saraswati Series features Grandseigneur Richard Bishop performing with his rough charm and maximum elegance, along with one of the hottest kick-ass avant-guitar players around, the now-Brooklyn-based Ava Mendoza. Besides her work in Unnatural Ways, she improvises constantly on NYs avant-stages along with Elliott Sharp, Jim Black, William Winant, Paul Flaherty, Tim Dahl, and others. Rumor has it that she was even in Caroliner. Recorded in full at Ivory Tower (Unrock Headquarters), the Sir opens up stepping deep into music history (as we know it), messing carefully around with the mysterious track that the New York Times focused on in their 2014 review of one of his live performances. An electric version of "Safe House," a bone-dry 2015 update on "Abyss," an eruptive outbreak from "Multiple Hallucination" into "Black Eyed Blue," and a mild and mellow reflection ("Ivory Tower"). Miss Mendoza is wild at heart and gives you the boot with what shes best at: thunderous, eruptive, twisted improvisations and perfect songs. Shadowtrapping.” - Unrock.

Artist: BURNT ENVELOPE
Title: Alien Nation: Collected Singles Thus Far
Format: LP
Label: Feeding Tube
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
Limited numbered edition of 300. "Vinylization of the first cassette released by Tony Pasquarosas incredible scuzz-punk project Burnt Envelope. Tony is well known for his multifarious guises (Crystalline Roses, World Domination, Gluebag, etc.) and membership of Frozen Corn, Aerosols, and whatever else might have happened this past week. Alien Nation documents the first imaginary seven singles by the band, ranging from garage-spew in the proto-punk vein to brutalist groin thunder. Version Sounds Bob Moore has compared Burnt Envelope to Electric Eels at their snarliest. Regardless of labels, the music here is a brilliant mock-trio throb that ranges from neolithic suburban psych pulse of a Lazy Smoke cover right on through to blabbermouth pre-core lockjaw. Burnt Envelopes LP is a significant addition to Tonys discography, a discography that may well prove to be one of the most important blurts of New Englands sub underground" - Byron Coley, 2016.

Artist: BURROUGHS, WILLIAM S.
Title: Break Through In Grey Room
Format: LP
Label: Sub Rosa
Country: Belgium
Price: $16.00
"2016 repress; originally released in 2008. One of the most classic and in-demand titles in the Sub Rosa catalog -- mid-60s cut-up tape machine recordings made by William S. Burroughs in hotels -- originally released on CD in 1987, reissued in 2001, now released on vinyl. Great gatefold packaging, limited to a total of 800 copies! During the 1960s, Burroughs was in Europe and England. The Vietnam War, the cultural revolution, hippies and the acid gospel, the U.S. in tumult -- all these were dispatches to him. Living between Paris and London, his only excursions to America were in 1965, when he lived a year in New York at the Chelsea Hotel and 210 Centre Street, and revisited St. Louis and Palm Beach; and in 1968, when he covered the Democratic Convention in Chicago for Esquire in the company of Genet, Southern and Seaver. Burroughs had quit the States in 1953 exactly because he foresaw these police-state conditions. But now the wild boys were in the streets, in London and Paris too, and Burroughs was inspired to hope that the world could really change. In the creative world/switchboard of Paris Beat Hotel, in London, in a house in the Arab Quarter of Tangier, he experimented with tape recordings -- under the tutelage of Brion Gysin -- hoping to cut the pre-recorded time line of present time, and, as he put it, "let the future leak out." Its impossible not to recognize the writers sonorous voice -- a sonority also present within the silence of every text he wrote. An explosion of styles -- a blasting of borders -- the silence after a gunshot -- the overtaking of the fetishized word -- from the exploded painting, to the cut tape. Break Through In Grey Room includes various monologues, radio shortwaves, music, and countless cut-up tape from which emerges new structures of communication. Words gain power when losing the boundaries of semantics. Also included is some Joujouka music recorded by Burroughs while he was with Ornette Coleman in the hills of Morocco, circa 1973. Many of these tapes are as much Ian Sommervilles work as Burroughs, or even more so. Ians technical background is a tribute to the early development of sound-and-light shows in London. Ian was a sorcerers apprentice in creating recordings. This is an important sound document in the history of Burroughs as an innovator, as well as an archive of the genesis of literature in opposition during a time-period whose urgency is more relevant than ever." -Sub Rosa.

"Captain Beefheart and The Magic Band had supported Love at the Avalon Ballroom a month before, but they returned on June 17th 1966 as headliners. Then seen as a blues musician with a big voice, rather than the avant-garde experimentalist he would become, Beefheart didnt disappoint, performing no fewer than four Howlin Wolf numbers in amongst a number of other blues covers and a smattering of originals. The Magic Band at this time were Doug Moon and Alex St. Clair on guitars, Jerry Handley on bass and Paul Blakely on drums. The Oxford Circle supported on the night, and coming from a Them/Yardbirds impulse as they did, they were well received by the blues enthusiasts in attendance. This Avalon show is augmented here by a number of bonus cuts from radio sessions and demos recorded between 1966 and 1968, all originals and all in surprisingly good quality for material of this vintage. The CD is completed with a rare radio interview (well, more of a chat really) between veteran Brit DJ John Peel and Beefheart, recorded one night in 1973 when the Good Captain joined Peel on his radio show, while touring the UK." - Go Faster.

"Gancio Cielo is the first full-length by Francesco Cavaliere, an artist whom Hundebiss had the pleasure of introducing to the public in 2010 with a legendary tape called Neverending Somersault. After years of live performance and intense studio work, Cavaliere developed a unique style using his voice as the main source of sounds alongside an incredible archive of homemade sound FX. The magical space of Gancio Cielo exists on its own, unfolding a fantastic night-time story combined with exotic electronic music from an imaginary universe in which alchemy and science fiction come together. Cavaliere has developed a veritable dictionary to catalog the strange beings that inhabit this universe, undefined by reference points: hybrids of objects, minerals, animals, plants, planets, trails, cosmic objects, and physical and perceptual phenomena." - Hundebiss.

Artist: CIRCUIT DES YEUX
Title: CDY3
Format: 10"
Label: Magnetic South
Country: USA
Price: $9.00
2013 release. “The cryptic vision of Circuit des Yeux becomes ever more formed with this minialbum. Whereas the oft solo Chicago-based Haley Fohr is backed with a tourlearned combo to push these three songs into maximal view then, off into obliteration. Yet, the focus remains Fohrs haunted, mournful melodies, where the edges of her voice twist toward inner conflict and white light aggression, and intricate feedback architecture of her guitar playing. In this near anthem rock mode the songs become a liberation from the cacophonous orchestrations fashioned throughout Symphone and Sirenum and the isolation of last years Portrait -- all full-lengths on the De Stijl label. The retelling of “Im On Fire” and the new "Lithonia" are classic structures filtered through Fohrs Romantic spirit and an emotional weight not far from Catherine Ribeiro or Peter Jefferies. The B-side “Helen, You Bitch” is a smudged, concrète-purposed solo that builds with drums and more guitar until the end. Recorded at the all analogue Magnetic South in Bloomington, Indiana, this 300 edition 10-inch is the studios first widespread release on its in-house label after previous titles from Apache Dropout, Learner Dancer and Tammar. 10" record housed inside of black and white cardstock foldover sleeve with b/w insert.” - Magnetic South.

"The Cleveland Wrecking Company were formed in San Francisco in 1965. Their members came from jazz, flamenco and R&B backgrounds, but together their psychedelic brew verged on Blue Cheer heaviness. As perennial local favorites, they gigged at every stage in the area. They left behind no recorded artifacts during this time; a deal with Vanguard went nowhere, when their manager absconded to Mexico with the album advance on an ill-fated mission to buy a kilo of pot. A later incarnation of the band -- with a completely different lineup and musical style -- released a 45 that has since become a favorite of cratedigging DJs, but This is not That. These two tracks hail from 1967-8: one studio, one live (the sonics on the latter may remind of the VUs guitar amp boot, but with a solo as overdriven and atonal as this, its a plus). With liner notes by Jim Moscoso (CWC bassist, vocalist, brother of Victor) and rare photographs." - Roaratorio.

It turned out these poems were not written until the night before the presentation of this book at stadslimiet in antwerp on august 19th of 2013. this off set printed book, 20 pages, limited to 200 copies is partly printed on glossy and partly on mat paper." - Ultra Eczema.

"If 1970s Journey in Satchidananda was a game changer for you then prepare yourself for this obscure 1982 cassette only release just out on CD. Alice Coltranes vocals are other worldly as if she made up her own language (in the form of Vedic Chants) its a spiritual message drowned in a sea of massive organ swirls and swells coupled to a string section that cant be described. These cassettes were originally sold at her Ashrams Avatar Book Institute. They are a total revelation for any Alice Coltrane fan and a missing link in her story." - Pat Thomas, author of Listen, Whitey! The Sights and Sounds of Black Power 1965-1975.

2005 release. "Minimalist pioneer Tony Conrad and notorious Krautrock progenitors Faust met just three times: in the studio to record the ground-breaking Outside the Dream Syndicate in 1972, and twice on the concert stage in the mid-1990s. This recording documents their third and final encounter, at Queen Elizabeth Hall, London, February 18, 1995. The difference between the original session and this live event is astonishing. While Conrads aggressive string sound was tamed in the studio by producer Uwe Nettlebeck (Conrad has complained that the mix made him sound like a hippy), here it is full of menace and ferocity, and in tandem attack with the equally belligerent violin of Jim ORourke, it conjures a raging wall of sound.." - Table Of The Elements.

"First vinyl release of Kiribati, the first installment in the acclaimed Ambient Exotica Soundscapes series by veteran English experimentalist Mike Cooper. Mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin. Edition of 500. "This was the first release on my Hipshot c.d.r label in 1999. I wanted to create an album of imaginary soundscapes from imagined exotic places based on my travels in the Pacific Islands and South East Asia. Kiribati was the first in a series of three CDs of Ambient Exotica Soundscapes -- played on lap steel, electronics, prepared guitar, sampler, live environmental recordings (from Bali, Malaysia, Australia and Italy) and acoustic and electronic percussion. (The other two are Globe Notes and my award winning Rayon Hula.) Kiribati was (and is) dedicated to the people and islands of Kiribati because they were slowly sinking into the Pacific Ocean. Although the palm trees are often 25 metres high, the islands themselves, made from gravel and sand, are only 4 or 5 metres above sea level and a rise in sea levels of just 15 centimetres, as has happened over the past 100 years due to global warming, is a disaster. Kiribati was recorded in my studio on a four track cassette, using a Casio SK1 sampling keyboard. A tool I used for many years both for recording and live sampling." -Mike Cooper.

"The latest LP from veteran fluxus composer Philip Corner. OM Entering. and Once Enterd comprises four previously unreleased recordings with the Barton Workshop, taken from performances in the Netherlands, and South Korea, between 2000-2007. OM ENTRANCE. OM ENTERTRANCE. which one does....because the performance is a real "passage from the material to the spiritual" unless the "real" world is just as spiritual already which i like to think it is. As perhaps an everyday awareness is already to be entranced which i have been told it is, really. To the facts: musicians coming-in already the performance of everything has to be done to get ready from unpacking to tuning and all that is done in the concentrated and exalted spirit of real music. Multiplicity moves noise to instrument possibilities with virtuosity show-offs slowing down to a perfect tuning in a quiet circle from where there is nowhere else to go but the sustaining of a quiet long tone. My old friend and colleague also great composer Jim Fulkerson is there as he has be, as he was even at the first performance way back must be almost 50 years by now joining the Creative Associates at the University of Buffalo on his initiative as likewise these performances in Holland with his group he calls The Barton Workshop and for sure he is there playing trombone too. The movement from SANG/TEH (SITUATIONS). Guard duty in a cold Korean winter. This piece was a major turning-point in my work. My life too you-could-say. "Of Ancient Times and Modern Sounds" i wrote then: a better world---much much better---than being in the American Army. The heterophonic melody-only texture learned from their "Ah Ahk" court music ("Soo Je Chun" the most beautiful music in the history of the world!) imposed on a thoroughly modern chromatic note structure. Occidental instruments absorbing the traditions of subtle sound colours so-long absent from the West. Public performance in Seoul. That must have been the Spring of 1961 just before they "shipped me out", to bring all that back home. Before that the wonderful and exceptional opportunity to "run through" some of it with the indigenous instruments of the Koog Ahk Wun (National Music Institute) thanks to the cultural open-mindedness of the classical kayageum master Byungki Hwang. And Jim has not only played the 3rd movement often, but brought if back to Korea once at the Pan Music Festival. But my long-waiting-for performance in Korea on native instruments has yet to take place. The CHOPIN PRELUDE piece is one of two, reworking passages from his D Major Prelude for piano, and a part of the "as a revelation" series which "looks into" moments from the classics which usually go by too fast. Begun with Mozart, the series has "got a lot of mileage" out of Satie, as well as including Buxtehude, Bach, Rimsky-Korsakoff, Verdi, Ives, Berlioz,, and others." - Philip Corner, 2015.

“From Middle-Eastern dancehall madness, freaky jazz experiments, and heavy dub psychedelia to beautiful piano trips, dark machine raids, and spaced-out traumas. From here to there -- out there, and everywhere. This is the sound of Danish sampling duo Den Sorte Skoles 78-minute album Indians & Cowboys. Here, forgotten musicians from the communal musical treasury come together to jam in a global ghost-orchestra crossing time and space.Indians & Cowboys follows Den Sorte Skoles monumental sample-based 90-minute triple-12"Lektion III (2013), a magnum opus that earned them the Danish Critics Composer of the Year 2014 award and won them an international following, and which Sasha Frere-Jones included as one of six titles in his "What I Missed: 2013 Albums" list for The New Yorker. Den Sorte Skole take their strictly sample-based methodology to even more extreme territories on Indians & Cowboys. With an immense amount of samples, even finer-stitched collage work, even more diverse musical energies, and a renewed complexity of composition derived from the duos work as composers in residence with the Danish National Chamber Orchestra, this is arguably the most ambitious sample-based album ever made. Indians & Cowboys is self-released by Den Sorte Skole. None of the samples have been cleared, but all of the samples are listed on the sleeve; contemporary copyright law makes it practically impossible to clear the number of samples involved in Den Sorte Skoles work, and the duo insists on challenging a system built by big businesses to favor mainstream artists and big record companies. But by revealing their sample-sources, Den Sorte Skole hopes to pass on knowledge, spark interest, and give credit to the forgotten musicians upon whose shoulders Den Sorte Skole -- and the rest of the music business -- stand, build, and create. Includes fully illustrated 32-page booklet.”

Artist: DETROIT, EDDY
Title: Immortal Gods
Format: LP
Label: Assophon
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Eddy Detroit is an underground legend. He was a key fixture in the fertile Phoenix, AZ scene of the early 80s (that included such luminaries as the Meat Puppets, Sun City Girls, Maybe Mental, Feederz, JFA etc.). Immortal Gods was the first release on his Pan Records label (his second LP, Philosophers Journey would be the only other). Both records were privately released in miniscule editions, are now and have been rather difficult to obtain for many years, ensuring them as holy grails for collectors of the exotic, cult, folk, beat, punk, and outsider rock musical canon. Immortal Gods was recorded and released in 1982. It features Alan Bishop and Charles Gocher (Sun City Girls), Dan and Mary Clark (Feederz/Victory Acres), Jesse Srgoncik (aka James Verlaine aka J. Akkari from Paris 1942, which featured the Velvet Undergrounds drummer Moe Tucker), and Brandon and Audrey Curtis backing Eddy and his African, voodoo, Hitchcock musical vision. It is a timeless masterpiece. The LP jacket cover is quite possibly the apex in outsider photography and demented vision. It features Eddy and a lady friend (a woman he picked up for the cover shot because she had the bone structure he was looking for) on horseback with Eddy holding his head in his outstretched hand. A perfect vision for the music contained within. Assophon Records is proud to present this album in its original format for the current generation to tango with." - Assophon. Highly recommended!

"Two foundational documents of American private-press psychedelic rock emerge from decades-long shadows, deeply illuminated chapters authored by prototypical "terminally unique" Southern California artist/seeker Phil Pearlman and two of his early, briefly extant bands.
The Electronic Hole (1970) is a raw, noisy, droning, and completely mesmerizing album recorded by Phil Pearlman between the first Beat of the Earth album (RAD 001LP) and Relatively Clean Rivers (ASH 3007CD). Pearlman assembled The Electronic Hole in 1969. Recorded in local studios during off-hours, the album is entirely different from Beat of the Earth, as it abandons a free-form improvisational approach in favor of "compositions," including a wild cover of Frank Zappas "Trouble Every Day." Pearlman plays sitar to great effect on the album, and another track has the thickest wall of fuzz guitars imaginable. It stands as the closest approximation of the West Coast version of what The Velvet Underground were doing with their first two albums. This is deep, brain-frying psychedelia in its purest definition. Limited edition of 300 copies." - Radich.

Leif Elggren is a Swedish artist who lives and works in Stockholm. Active since the late 1970s, he is a writer, visual artist, stage performer and composer. He has many sound-works to his credit, both solo and with the Sons of God (with Kent Tankred), on labels such as Ash International, Touch, Radium and Firework Edition Records (which he co-runs with Kent Tankred). His music usually presents carefully selected sound sources over a long stretch of time and can range from quiet electronics to harsh noise. His wide-ranging and prolific body of art often involves dreams and subtle absurdities, social hierarchies turned upside-down, hidden actions and events taking on the quality of icons. Together with artist Carl Michael von Hausswolff, he is a founder of the Kingdoms of Elgaland-Vargaland (KREV) where he enjoys the title of king.” - Fragment Factory.

Gruppo aspired to revolutionize composition through group improvisation and-like their peer, Karlheinz Stockhausen-musique concrete, aleatory (controlled chance) techniques and early electronic music. One significant influence in the studio was their use of chess to define key parameters of their music. Musica Su Schemi is unpredictable, fluid and always marked by a tension between the performers and their conscious rejection of traditional forms. Each member of Gruppo would establish themselves as important figures in 20th century music, though no others gained the notoriety of Morricone. Nonetheless, Gruppos influence on modern composition endures.

The groups instrumentation is highly unorthodox, placing Uchidas mysterious bass textures against the wet skirl of Hasegawas hichiriki, an ancient double-reed wind instrument whose haunting upper register tones are an unmistakable feature of gagaku court music. Hasegawa brings a bucketful of phlegm to his approach to the instrument, out-honking Zorns duckcall work by a marshy mile. Uchida also contributes some striking ichigen (single-string) koto. Deliriously psychedelic, fully immersive drone and oriental wind works in the grand tradition of Taj Mahal Travellers, Nijiumu, Marginal Consort and too few others." - Alan Cummings.

Rumour had it that Ice Yacht had embarked on an ill-fated trip to the North Pole attempting to retrace a journey made by the Norwegian explorer Fridtjof Nansen in 1888. This story was given credence when last year a research group uncovered a cassette tape in a vacuum-sealed case in the permafrost. The tape was marked simply Ice Yacht – Pole of Cold. After letting the tape thaw out it was then baked in an oven allowing the transfer of the recordings.

The first release on New Records is the first vinyl edition, with new artwork, of Japanese band Khola Cosmicas overlooked 2011 self-titled CD. Hailing from Tokyo, Khola Cosmica are not your average "stoner rock" band. This brutal power trio plays some of the most extreme, psychedelic doom metal you can find. Long tracks featuring devastating, loud, in-your-face fuzz riffing, hypnotic drones, and dark atmospheres destined to destroy your mind. Remastered sound. Includes insert." - New Records.

Title: Dripping Junk
Format: Hardcover Book/CD
Label: Penultimate Press
Country: UK
Price: $52.00
"Penultimate Press is proud to announce the publication of Dripping Junk- an all new collection of graphic work by Graham Lambkin (Shadow Ring). The 100 drawings gathered in Dripping Junk were made over a period of five days during a recent trip to Miami FL. Lambkins eye and pen guide us through a confusion of local observation. We find ourselves transported to the opulent sands of South Beach, the strip malls of Dade County, and the many tourists spots one would expect to engage. Yet Lambkin allows us to view these sites through his own distorted lens. This is not the Miami of common expectation. Lambkin throws us headfirst in to a hallucinogenic netherworld where logic and common sense cower in the shade of the palms. A world where fantasy and reality mix effortlessly and are drank as the cocktail of choice. A world where the skunk ape is king. Dripping Junk contains 100 black and white drawings printed on high-quality paper and comes as a beautiful limited edition large format hardcover book of 250 copies. The cd contains exclusive material to this release." - Penultimate Press.

In tip-on sleeve with insert. ". . .we can make [enough] progress inside our heads and the heads of our friends to lay the foundations of an intergalactic life more meaningful than our earthbound condition . . ." - John Peel, International Times.

"First reissue; remastered sound. Includes full-color booklet containing informative liner notes by collectorJack D. Fleischer prepared from artist interviews, as well as full lyrics and rare photos. Mirroring the sentiment of the prescient UK radio legend in his Vibrations column for the International Times in the 70s, LightDreams leader Paul Marcano took one step beyond his intimate colleagues and chose to spread his ideals concerning peaceful outer-space colonization to all with open ears. Islands in Space, dotted with acoustic jams, backward guitars, lyrics alluding to the British progressive era, smoking-hot electric leads, synths galore, and the dreamiest of melodies, is both Marcanos love letter to the work of science-fiction author Gerard K. ONeill and the psych-tinged folk explorers who came before him such as McDonald and Giles. Originally privately issued in 1981 in an edition of 1,000 copies, Islands in Space explores space travel and cosmic ideology in a sci-fi psych odyssey and is filled with atmospheric, lysergic creations atop a hybrid of sounds from the cosmic psych/progressive folk/new age spectrum. Home-recorded (yet hi-fi), Islands in Space carries a singular quality, defies easy categorization, and has long been savored by collectors of otherworldly joys. This singular, beatific work now has another chance to shine from Earths surface to the outer reaches of the galaxy. RIYL: Dreamies; Donovan; Pete Fine;Robert Lester Folsoms hazy, synth-led moments; McDonald and Giles; Ramases; Simones; the out-of-time bliss of Bobb Trimble; et al." - Got Kinda Lost.

Self-released compilation from 2006. "This deep into the internet era its unusual to discover a weird ass band whove been active and recording since the 1990s without ever appearing as a blip on any known radar screen. Yet, here are Los Lichis: a Mexican music/art collective whose recording history goes back 18 years and whose sound is as powerful and strange as any combo around. Some might suggest that Mexico is not known for its underground sonic emanations, but many dig artists like Loch Ness, Chac Mool, Lorelle Meets The Obsolete, Los Llamarada and various improv types heard about from folks who tour down there. Some of Mexicos punk and metal bands have their moments as well. But none of them on the scale of Los Lichis. Los Lichis were formed in 1996 in Mexico City by three visual artists—Manuel Mathar, José Luis ROjas and Gerardo Monsivais. They had met a year earlier and their social collaborations on drawings, collages and actions eventually morphed into musical experimentation. They ended up recording quite a bit of improvised psychedelic material using a variety of instruments they approached with more enthusiasm than knowledge. In Paris in 2000 for an exhibition of their work, Mathar and Monsivais met the French sound artist Jean-Baptiste Favory, who was excited by the cassettes they played him. Favory became the fourth member, visiting Mexico once a year to play live and record with Los Lichis, and to help in processing the resultant material. Soon after their French sojourn, a slightly different version of the group, featuring a couple of Mexican musicians, began playing and recording under the name The Cacaflies. Various CD-Rs and cassettes were released by the core group using both names, but the details are vague. Largely these recordings seem to have been distributed free at live shows.

Several are also available online.
The first vinyl issued by Los Lichis is the sprawling retrospective “Dog”, which includes material recorded throughout their first decade of activity (1997-2007). It is a massive work, and as defining as classic double albums like Richard Youngs and Simon Wickham-Smiths “Lake,” The Dead Cs “Harsh 70s Reality” and Royal Truxs “Twin Infinitives.” Although its difficult to nail specific sonic bits to specific inspirations, Los Lochis admit to liking Can, Pink Floyd, Sir Richard Bishop and…Ween! That said, musicians I would be more likely to compare their approach to are Ritual All 7-70, No-Neck Blues Band, Sun City Girls, Mako Sika and (especially) the French free rock combos of the 1970s: Mahogany Brain, Red Noise, Gutura and so on. There is something very special about the way non-musicians approach music as an artform. Its usually something they have long appreciated from afar, and they often attack it with a unique brand of amateur gutso mixed with a sophisticated conceptual approach. los Lichis—named after a stray dog, not the tropical fruit—sound like a million different things from track to track and moment to moment. Ive been trying to map the evolution of their sound by cross-referencing the dates the material was recorded, but theres a delightfully shocking lack of standard technical advancement. This takes some doing.
Witness the brief flash of the no wave scene in NYC. When it began, many no wave band members were non-musicians involved in other artistic pursuits—painting, movies, sculpture, etc. But over the course of a short year and a half, many of these same players began to understand the rudiments of rock dynamics well enough to become beholden to them. What had begun as a weird explosion of loud primitive sound art was destined to become mere rock n roll. Thankfully, the bands mostly imploded before this became a problem. But Los Lichis manage to document a decade of playing without showing evidence of their becoming trapped by structure (although the quality of the recordings definitely improves over time). This demonstrates a fairly perverse dedication, and sounds like a total blast.
Some bits (all of which are instrumental, barring the occasional flash of found radio squawk) remind me of Hawkwind, some are more like Noise Makers Fifes, some like International Harvester, others Sapat, but there are never any specific quotes that let you know these guys have even heard those artists.
Since they made it to France, and collaborate with a musician there whos pretty well connected, its possible to assume theyre fully clued in. But the fact they namecheck Ween (rather than Magical Power Mako or something) has the honesty of randomness, and reads like a suggestion that they really do hew their own path. They pick up whatever they find that interests them, but immediately break it up and toss it into their collage-engine. The process itself is not odd, but discovering people who have stuck to it for so long in this day and age is not easy.
Los Lichis have now recorded a brand new EP called “Giant Lichis” with visual artist Ismael Merla joining on guitar. I would be lying if I didnt say this EP sounds a bit more together (in standard terms) than their earlier work. They incorporate a couple of dub elements in a way that recall the On-U Sound “Mothmen” LP, and there are some extended passages that focus on found-riffs that remind me of either The Homosexuals or Rick James. But ultimately “Giant Lichis” is as implausible and original as any of their other work. Whether or not the music now exists inside of a known stream of sound, its very damn cool. What are the chances?" - Byron Coley, The Wire.

“Cognition/Observation is the very necessary follow-up to Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowes physically modelled modular trance impulses heard onTimon Irnok Manta, which was issued to critical acclaim by Type in 2012 (TYPE 111LP). Bypassing academic practice in pursuit of fluid, instinctive progression, "Cognition (Forbes)" and "Observation (Sophrons)" unfurl two long, knotted sequences entangling intricate West African drum patterns and visual motifs in a buoyant, propulsive abstraction of techno and earthed-yet-cosmic electronics. Bass is thick as treacle and buffered by a scratchy, semi-organic flux of dancing sparks and mbira-like metallic twang in "Cognition (Forbes)," before the same elements refract and tessellate in a more nuanced echo chamber sound, distinctly recalling the shape of Dynamos 2002 classic Außen Vor (DIN CD01) as much as Hieroglyphic Beings hypnotic improvisations. Rarified, transcendent music of the strongest order. Mastered and cut by Matt Colton at Alchemy.” - Demdike Stare.

Label: Mannequin
Country: Germany
Price: $21.00
“Brussels-based French producer Maoupa Mazzocchetti follows acclaimed productions on Unknown Precept, PRR! PRR!, and Mannequin Records with his full-length debut, Laugh Tool. Mazzocchetti resurrects the earlier days of electro-industrial in a mixture that recalls the late-70s/early-80s period of Fad Gadget, Throbbing Gristle, Portion Control, Cabaret Voltaire, and Front 242 crossed with the more fresh and innovative deep electronic experiments of Beau Wanzer andCharles Manier. Driven by a DIY ethic and a punk ideology, Mazzocchetti records his work in his bedroom without any professional equipment, using analog synths and sequencers, modified drum machines, tape loops, and lots of effects pedals. Florent Mazzocchetti(aka Maoupa Mazzocchetti) began experimenting with rhythm at an early age. He developed a passion for the drums at the age of ten but soon got into rock records and switched to guitar, which became his main instrument and shaped his perception of music. To an audience of contemporary electronic music consumers who have only closely followed techno, house, electro, and disco, the sounds of Laugh Tool will appear unearthly and entirely unexpected. Its an album of ten tracks ready to change minds. Artwork by Florent Mazzocchetti. Mastered by Rude 66. Limited edition of 500.” - Mannequin.

Price: $25.00
Double LP issue of the 1999 Drunken Fish CD. "Ten singles and two albums. At a certain point during my stay in the apartment on 13th Street I either said it to myself or said it out loud -- I cant recall -- but that seemed a realistic target all things considered. Few distractions, few visitors, few appointments. A busy city to break up the endless music looping in my head long after the headphones had been taken off. A micro-studio easily patched together and able to be configured in only one or two variations. Time to pay some dues. Both to the 45 single and the concept album. The small vinyl artefact that fed my musical appetite at key times in my life. No b" sides if it could be helped. Chasing a theme for as long as it took. Waiting for the real pattern to emerge. The perfect visual ratios of 7" and 12" cover art. Talking with the dead. Replying to the faded parsimony of a young fan and would-be maker of records (me): "Get it down now because this may be as good as it gets," "Dont wait for a real label to pay for your studio time," "Time spent recording should always at least match time spent playing live." I figured that the universal average for bands and recording artists was one, maybe two, good singles and an OK album then oblivion or, worse, a slow decline through contractual obligations. The only contract I had was with a scattering of friends, mostly American, who were there to deal with the out-pourings, should they arrive. And things had bottled up. Time to un-bottle. Not all at once. A few minutes at a time only for the intense stuff. Handing over bracketed ideas to this or that label as an act of faith. Then watching in awe as others transformed signals into objects. And here, running full circle in the literal sense, seven goes into 12 many times, with folk new and old keeping the faith. Lucky me. -Roy Montgomery. Housed in a gatefold sleeve. Includes three new songs, new artwork and unpublished photos, and an insert with an updated intro by Bill Meyer and Roy Montgomery.

Title: Bay of Seething
Format: LP
Label: Feeding Tube
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
Limited edition of 300. "Lovely, mysteriously canted debut LP by the new Austin-based quartet put together by Aaron Russell (ex-Cherry Blossoms, Weird Weeds, etc.). The music on Bay of Seething is instrumental, and rolls with a very cinematic feel, as though it were the soundtrack for some sort of rather sad, but highly psychedelic, movie. Sonically, if you need easy handles, the sounds are probably closer to Weird Weeds than to Cherry Blossoms, perhaps because bassist Lindsey Verrill is a Weeds alum as well. But perhaps not. The blend of Aarons guitar -- sometimes raw and heavy, sometimes more in the electro-folk mode -- with Sheila Scovilles synth, Verrills bass, and Carolyn Cunninghams drums creates a dynamic and surging whole thats hypnotic and rapturous. Curiously, Moonsicles grab neither of the easy tropes that have lately been the stock-in-trade of instrumental units -- orientalia and spaghetti westernism. Their approach is straighter in a way, more based on proggy rock-qua-rock without nodding to either the far east or the faux west. The more the record plays, the deeper youll sink. So grab yr duvet and prepare thyself for a solid ride" - Byron Coley, 2016.

Title: Im On Nights
Format: LP

Country: UK
Price: $23.00
"The Pheromoans present their fourth album, Im On Nights, following 2012s Does This Guy Stack Up? (UTR 054CD/LP) and 2014s Hearts of Gold. A largely electronic affair, this ten-track LP -- recorded in Manor House, Northeast London -- refracts vocalist Russell Walkers stony poeticisms through a lens of analog synths while etching drum machine clicks and spaced-out keyboard ditties into the bigger picture. Guitars and bass still make an appearance -- helmed by Christian Butler, Alex Garran, and James Tranmer -- but theyve mostly been eclipsed by the scrappy, artificial beats that now underline Walkers diary-like, ennui-soaked rhymes. Album opener "Wizard" -- with its blocky, "Bizarre Love Triangle"-esque intro and unnerving pins-and-needles crackle -- jolts the listener awake with charges of experimental noise. Then theres the plaintive synth pads on stripped-back tearjerker "ION" and the acid squelch of "Depressed Thunderbird." Because, with Im On Nights, musical touchstones take on a myriad of cult guises, shifting from downbeat minimal wave to a hypothetical vision of Dan Treacy crooning caustically over "Mari" by Martin Rev. Thats not forgetting, of course, the influence of an outlier crop of new wave-y post-punk bands including Datblygu and Young Marble Giants. And, as always, theres the requisite nod to all things DIY. Walker says he hope this direction will create some distance between the band and a certain demographic, characterizing the album as "an attempt to alienate further the other dads at the nursery gates who kept slapping my back firmly and saying nice work keeping our music alive compadre, and trying to graft their aviator shades onto my forehead and contorting my fingers into the devils headset." With titles like "Dont Spread It Round College" and "Brads Crush," the bulk of the LPs lyrical content reaches back into Walkers 16-to-18-year-old psyche, as he explains: "It was at J. Sainsbury (Produce) in Uxbridge where I discovered the joy of working alone at night unimpeded and free to delve further into my hitherto unexplored imagination...!!" And its this theme of (oft night-time) employment that cuts through ballpoint scribbles of Walkers quotidian missives. Hailing from the holy trinity of Englands most southern locales -- London, Brighton, and Hertfordshire -- The Pheromoans consist of Russell Walker on vocals, Christian Butler on guitar and electronics, Alex Garran on bass and electronics, James Tranmer on guitar and electronics, Scott Reeves on drums and electronics, and Dan Bolger on keyboards." - Alter.

Country: Italy
Price: $26.00
"Alga Marghen very proudly presents a remastered version of Vice-Versa, Etc..., an LP originally included in the first 400 copies of Eliane Radigues Feedback Works 2LP. Vice-Versa, Etc... was originally a small handmade box, signed and numbered and released on the occasion of a show at Lara Vincys gallery in 1970. The box contained a reel of magnetic tape and the instructions for use. It indicates that all playback speeds are possible, forward or backward, as well as any combination of two channels, on several recorders, ad libitum. This LP presents two versions done by Emmanuel Hoelterbach following the indications of Eliane Radigue to the letter, respecting her composition methods. There is no doubt that Eliane Radigues vocabulary is based on observing and entering into dialog with the fundamental behavior of sounds: pulsing, beating, sustained, very light, a subtle and delicate evolution. When she moved from feedback sounds to the ARP synthesizer, she naturally continued the same music -- a continuity where the original use of feedback sounds stands out for its cruder and more savage inner character. One could say that somehow its the very texture of the sounds, which leads the form of her compositions. At the same time, this approach favors an intense sensuality in the listening. This edition limited to 300 copies includes an insert with liner notes." - Alga Marghen.

Country: Austria
Price: $25.00
Packaged with 3D cover art; includes Anaglyphic 3D glasses. "Pacific Tubular Waves" (1979): Electronic music for Synclavier digital synthesizer. "The first four movements frame different visions of the energy delivered by the rolling waves as a kind of auditory surfing on the crest and into the trough of the wave (movements 1-3), followed by a high speed crossing within the tubular cyclone (4). The piece ends with easing waves at dusk... In terms of the making, Pacific Tubular Waves is a purely electronic music, a solo performance on the first digital Synclavier synthesizer. The flexibility of its touch keys enabled me to intuitively program a sonic organic life quality with a concrete quality. Here the computer was used to magnify the texture and behavior of the oceanic material though never mimicking it." "Immersion" (1980): Electroacoustic music for Synclavier synthesizer and underwater recordings. "Composing Immersion started with underwater recordings using a hydrophone. After recording the shifting sands and the rolling pebbles under the breakers, I came up with the idea of dipping a sonar loudspeaker underwater to diffuse my Pacific Tubular Waves piece (made the previous year) below the surface. The music was thus shuffled by the waves and unexpected filtering effects resulted from its passing through clouds of foam. Its dispersion at sea by currents would send back incredibly smooth harmonic echoes... The recording of this natural remixing process is the guiding thread of the piece. It is interspersed with sequences composed in the studio with the Synclavier. Alternating dry/wet, for a gradual immersion through increasingly calm and dense increments... Three-dimensional Visible Images through the glasses attached hereto. Analogous to stereo, the anaglyph graphic process consists of two left and right points view of the same object... The feeling of space is expanding proportionally to the distance of observation, from 80 cm to several meters" --Michel Redolfi. A singular figure of the electroacoustic landscape, Redolfi debuted in 1980 with Pacific Tubular Waves/Immersion on INA-GRM. Recollection GRM presents the first reissue of this record.

Title: Navigating by Starlight
Format: LP
Label: MIE
Country: UK
Price: $26.00
"Navigating by Starlight is the elegantly distended fourth LP by a New York band known for its fine taste in bourbon as well as its ability to explore strangely forested nooks of space. Composed of two side-long excursions of heavily bearded improv, this is what Bruce Dern should have been listening to throughout Douglas Trumbulls Silent Running. The first side is called “Lovejoy Vapor Trail,” after the recently discovered comet said to be releasing enough alcohol to fill 500 bottles of George T. Stagg every second. Who could fail to be staggered by such a suggestion? Not these guys. Dave Shufords guitar vomits stars in all known directions, Jimy SeiTangs bass and synth cover the proceedings with a blanket of darkness, and Rob Smiths drums drive things along like a pulsar. The flip, “Scylla and Charybdis,” continues Rhytons linguistic love affair with Ancient Greece. But with Shuford on electric mandolin, and the rhythm section picking their way between the twin threats more carefully than usual, the band creates a vibe that is more space-swamp than whirlpool (at least in this writers opinion). By which I mean its method of sucking you into its vortex is staggered rather than continuous. Of course, once youve stuck your head into Rhtyons sound-barrel, the specifics of destruction dont matter much do they? 500 bottles of Stagg a second . . . that would sure take care of the world shortage, wouldnt it?" - Byron Coley.
"After crafting Kykeon, the most detailed and finely intermeshed recording of their output, the cosmic compatriots Rhyton decided to get back to basics and kick out the jams with both ferocity and stateliness. Navigating by Starlight features two sidelong improvised slices of molten music recorded by the redoubtable Jason Meagher at apex temperatures at his Black Dirt Studio in upstate New York. The first side, "Lovejoy Vapor Trail," follows a journey from an initial solemn invocation through areas of blinding scree toward a summit of relaxed but rough and tough guitar elevation. The second side, with its natural bifurcation, was an instant composition of two halves that balance perfectly and exhibit a subdued menace." - MIE.

"When In Blue was released, many fans thought that this was the most typical Schulze record for a long time. They were probably right because Klaus did the songs a little bit with the fans in mind for whom the sound of the previous album were too modern. In this respect In Blue is a more traditional Schulze record because it featured Manuel Goettsching on Return Of The Tempel. However he didnt plan it. Somehow it came to his mind to ask Manuel if he wont feel like playing a bit again. When we are playing live we just have to look at eachb other, and everything flowes! Manuel is not only a great guy but also a gifted guitarist. Since the days with Ash Ra Tempel Klaus and Manuel never lost touch with each other." - Made in Germany.

Title: Yoiking with the Winged Ones
Format: LP
Label: Ash International
Country: UK
Price: $18.00
"Yoiking with the Winged Ones is a vinyl record with yoiks yoiked by Ánde Somby and recorded and mixed by Chris Watson. Yoiking is the ancient chanting practice of the Sámi people, the indigenous inhabitants of the Arctic area of Sápmi, today encompassing the far north of Europe. Yoikings origins date from time immemorial -- legend has it that it was the fairies and elves of the Arctic lands who gave yoiks to the Sámi. Yoiking was an important element of the religious rituals in pre-Christian times and has survived Christianity, imperialism, and the confiscation of Sámi areas by Norway, Finland, Sweden, and Russia. Ánde Somby is deeply rooted in the yoik tradition. He comes from the eastern part of the north Sámi areas, with connections to the tundra tradition of the reindeer herders and the valley tradition of arctic farmers. His yoiking is quite technical as well as melodic; Somby is at once a traditional and innovative yoiker, with an expressive style on the borders of the human voice. Here, all three pieces on side A are his compositions. The albums title refers to the migratory birds that travel to the Arctic for their breeding season and break the Arctic silence with their singing and calling, while also referring to the sound that flies from the echoing mountains. The project draws inspiration from the fairies and elves who gave the yoiks to humans, tying the yoiks to the earth, and from the ongoing war against those fairies and elves; this war was waged in Norway by 19th-century national poet Henrik Wergeland in the song "Nisser og Dverge," and has continued by stripping the earth of its soul and giving free license to aggressive exploitation. The album is also inspired by the Greek myth of Narcissus and Echo, in which Echo is rejected by Narcissus but gains an eternal voice; here, Echo yoiks along together with the underground energies of the ancient practice. Recorded by world-famous sound artist and field recordist Chris Watson in Kvalnes, Lofoten, Norway, in mid-June 2014, while the arctic winds rested for a moment. Post-production by Chris Watson. A K Dolven took the photos for the project and was instrumental in developing the concept. Artwork and design by Philip Marshall. Thanks also to Tony Myatt. Yoiking with the Winged Ones was made possible by the generous support granted by Sámediggi - Sametinget." - Ash International.

Title: Um Piano nas Barricadas
Format: LP

Price: $29.00
“Since his first release (2006s Crepúsculo), pianist and composer Tiago Sousa has been consistently developing his very own aesthetic; through his relatively large body of work, one can identify an artist on the search for his own expression and identity. Um Piano nas Barricadas ("A Piano in the Barricades") follows three largely successful endeavors, all centered on the piano: Insónia (2009),Walden Ponds Monk (2011), and Samsara (2013). In the time between those works and Um Piano nas Barricadas, Sousa composed the score for the 2013 Portuguese film Bibliografia (included here) and the large-scale theater piece O Coro das Vontades, which premiered in 2012. Um Piano nas Barricadas is another development in this unique body of work by one of the most interesting and intriguing musicians to come out of the burgeoning Portuguese music scene, cementing his place as one of the most distinct voices in piano-driven minimalism. Includes collaborations with Tó Trips, Ricardo Ribeiro,Balthazar Molina, and Rebecca Roth. Mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin. Edition of 500.” - Discrepant.

Title: Ultrissima on the Junks Moon
Format: LP
Label: Cache Cache
Country: UK
Price: $26.00
"The work of an incredible, idiosyncratic, and obscure early-80s French futurist DIY project lead by Jean-Luc Aimé (Univers Zero), this feature-length album of elusive recordings from rare vinyl and cassette co-op releases (collected as the first-ever LP of the project) represents the bone fide axis point where zeuhl-skool meets synthpop, dark ambient, and early electro. A lost art-ifact from a micro-genre in whichZED, Eskaton, and Heldon share outernational tape space with Vox Populi!, The Normal, Colin Potter, and Luc Marianni, this work occupies a unique place on the shelves of fans of early DIY electro and post-punk, while ticking the boxes of 80s VHS OST enthusiasts and followers of the growing interest in European cassette zine projects. These melodic, macabre pieces fuse multi-track cassette experiments with homemade special effects from the hand of an accomplished multi-instrumentalist working on the outer reaches of disenfranchised progressive pop and reluctant techno, defining then deconstructing genres that have yet to exist. Stabat Stable were fueled by futurist gothic imagery and operated on a plane parallel to their European and American contemporaries; there are few artists like them, and virtually none more enigmatic. This benchmark record is the first signpost to a darker part of your musical want-list, as the invisible glue for fans of the aforementioned anti-genres. File under "Not Yet."" - Cache Cache.

Price: $26.00
"First official vinyl re-issue in collaboration with original band members Charles Bullen and Charles Hayward. 24 bit/96 kHz re-master from original analog tapes. 180 gram wax housed in an expanded gatefold tip-on jacket. Includes booklet with track notes and archival photos. Isnt it so often the case that the most innovative works of art -- the ones that break the ground where others follow -- are the ones that seem to reach only the ears of those who take those ideas and run with them? So it is with This Heat and their eponymous debut album frequently referred to as “blue and yellow” for its ultra-minimal jacket. Within its 48 minute run time, the seeds of post-punk, avant rock, noise rock and post-rock can be found. Formed in Brixton, a multicultural, and -- at the time -- down-at-heel part of south London, This Heat were born into a music scene in rapid flux, first thanks to the punk explosion and then via new wave and its myriad offshoots into pop, rock and art-rock. But while many sought to apply punk attitude to chart-friendly sounds, This Heat were concocting some of the most experimental ideas ever committed to tape, taking influence from musique concrète, krautrock, the burgeoning industrial scene and even the dub reggae blasting out in their home borough. Their debut album had -- for the time and for the DIY scene -- an unusually long gestation, recorded in sessions between February 1976 and September 1978 in a variety of studios including their own Cold Storage, a converted cold storage room in the Acme Studios complex. Innovating throughout, they combined loops and tape manipulation with live performance and haunting vocals to a complex, dissonant whole. The band recorded everything they ever did -- including gigs -- and tracks such as “Water” were entirely improvised in the studio. Given the difficult, abrasive, and involved nature of their sound, This Heat never found anything approaching mainstream success, but patronage by the influential Radio 1 DJ John Peel meant they reached a national audience -- whether that audience was ready for them or not. Celebrating This Heats 40th anniversary in 2016, Modern Classics Recordings will re-issue the bands catalog -- 1979sThis Heat, 1980s Health and Efficiency, and 1981s Deceit -- with full co-operation of surviving members Charles Bullen and Charles Hayward. Four decades on, the tireless efforts of This Heats process can once again be a revelation for new audiences." - Modern Classics.

Title: This Skin is Rust
Format: Double LP
Label: Bobby J
Country: USA
Price: $38.00
"The concept of the double album is all but lost these days. W/ CDs clocking in at 70+ minutes, its only logical that the vinyl version would have to be two discs, so naturally, there are more dull dbl-LPs now than ever. Of course, even before CDs ruined the format, it was still primarily used to cash in on something - the live LP, the career retrospective - but the dbl-LP as a non-negotiable statement of "what it is", not "fill it up" those are pretty few & far between. Personally Ive always been kindve into that statement - not the vinyl equivalent - the idea that said bulk of work has to be released as is because of some sortve linear transformation within. You know what I mean? For instance, I would say the two best example s of this in the 90s have been Lake & Harsh Seventies Reality. Not far down the path - & especially for the latter 90s - would be this. Its probably safe to assume that Mr Twenty-Six has been w/in earshot of both those releases, but no matter, the vectors on this here still point back to his basement. What I particularly like about this are the long, exorbitant breaths that are taken. The banding on the vinyl would have you believe that there are many different pieces - there are - but they move inconspicuously in & outve each other, like hemp-laced tether balls floating through plumes of pigmentary smoke in some anonymous, non-gravitational netherworld. It can be downright numbing at times. And while I cannot say for sure that anything on here consciously nods in the direction of fellow Texans Jandek or Charalambides, its staying power is certainly more up to par w/ them than, say, Stars Of The Lid or any of that ambient punk clone crap currently making the rounds. Go ahead & blab all you want about the Krautrock mumblings emitted, Ill still shove it in the pile closer to the This Heat records than anything else. Now theres a band who shouldve made a dbl-LP. There arent too many names to add to that list. The list of those who shouldnt have - well now, that list is very long. And growing." - Tom Lax / Opprobrium (1995).

Label: Omicron
Country: Italy
Price: $24.00
"Exact repro" reissue of the 1975 LP, part of the "Background Music" series. The theme is African music and instruments.
"Piero Umiliani was an Italian composer of film scores, most famous for his song "Mah Nࠍah Nࢠof 1968, that was originally used for a Mondo documentary about Sweden (Svezia, Inferno e Paradiso) and became world-famous in 1977 when performed for The Muppet Show. The song was also an anthem of the Benny Hill show. Like many of his Italian colleagues at that time, he composed the scores for many exploitation films in the 1960s and 1970s, covering genres such as spaghetti western, Eurospy, Giallo, and soft sex films. Although not as widely regarded as, for example, Ennio Morricone or Riz Ortolani, he helped form the style of the typical European 60s/70s jazz-influenced film soundtrack that later experienced a revival in films like Kill Bill and Oceans Twelve. Piero Umiliani was born in Florence on July 17 1926. In 1959, charged by great Mario Monicelli to compose the OST of "I Soliti Ignoti" (Big Deal on Madonna Street) OST, he gains international recognition. The score featured Chet Baker on trumpet and it was the first experiment ever of Jazz Music on an Italian comedy movie. In 1961, he writes the music for "Smog" OST were again he featured Chet Baker artistry along with Helen Merrill shaping a masterpiece in Jazz OST history. Il 1970, the Master opened Liuto Edizioni Musicali, his own publishing company and Sound Work Shop recording studio. The first album of this new professional dimension was "Svezia, Inferno e Paradiso" (Sweden, Heaven and Hell") who contained the biggest hit of his career: "Mah Nࠍah Nࢠ(Muppet Show, Benny Hill Show, Red Skelton show). From Liuto catalogue came some of the greatest and richest moments in Italian film Music history. "La Ragazza dalla Pelle di Luna" (The Girl with the Skin of the Moon), "La Legge dei Gangsters" (The Gangsters" Law), Angeli Bianchi … Angeli Neri (White Angels … Black Angels) etc. Liuto catalogue also features incredible background music albums that delivers an amazing variety of sounds: from "To.Day"s Sound" and "News" to "Tra Scienza e Fantascienza" (Between Science and Science Fiction). In those great albums Piero Umiliani combined live Musicians with Electronic instruments. A very exhaustive manifesto of such works can be heard on "Musicaelettronica Vol. 1 & 2" anthology albums. In the past few years, the Timeless and Stainless sound of Piero Umiliani has strongly come back with the inclusion of his music in OSTs of movies like "Playing by Heart" (Sean Connery), "Thick as Thieves" (Alec Baldwin) and ultimately the star packed Hollywood production "Ocean"s 12" with great Crepuscolo Sul Mare track. Major Multinational brands have used his music for television advertising and the CD releases of his music were acclaimed worldwide. In his long career Piero Umiliani composed and recorded 190 soundtracks, 40 library albums and 35 TV title themes." - Discogs.

Price: $59.00
"Three-LP box version in purple-and-gold hot-foil-stamped box with eight-page insert and poster. A treasure trove of previously unreleased West Coast guitar psychedelia, 1966-1975. "Uther Pendragon was more than just a band, it was a family. Closer than brothers, they lived together, made music together, worked, played, laughed, cried and dreamed together." --Mike Stax (Ugly Things)
This is the incredible story of Uther Pendragon, a lost psychedelic band from San Francisco whose music has remained buried until now. Formed in the Bay Area in 1966 as a teen garage group called Blue Fever, Uther Pendragon lasted from 1966 until 1978. During that time, the band went through different names and phases, as their music evolved from garage to psychedelia to hard rock, but the core of the band always remained the same: Mark Lightcap (rhythm guitar, vocals), Bruce Marelich (lead guitar, vocals), and Martin Espinosa (bass, vocals). After finding their ultimate drummer in Mike Beers, the group finally settled on the Uther Pendragon name in the early 70s. But despite being active for all that time and recording at numerous studios (including their own in Palo Alto), Uther Pendragon never released any recordings. Their complex and fascinating story, which involves winning a Bay Area Battle of the Bands and playing with Country Joe & The Fish, recording a killer garage-psych 7" acetate in 1967, going to the legendary Pacific Recording Studios in 1969 to record a demo, living as a family in the same house for many years and rehearsing seven days a week, building their own recording studio and music corporation, being managed by Craig Pedersen (Something Wild, Tripsichord Music Box), being involved in an occult-themed rock opera called Sabbat, and much more, is told with all the details by Mike Stax from Ugly Things in this sets extensive liner notes, with rare photos. Produced from the bands vast archive of original master tapes, San Francisco Earthquake includes their unknown-until-now 7" acetate from 1967 (fab garage-psych in the vein of The Human Expression or The Music Machine); tracks from 1966-69 including a groundbreaking, moody psycher from 1966; a demo tape from 1969 recorded at Pacific Recording -- an incredible document for any lover of early SF garage-psych (think Oxford Circle, The Savage Resurrection, Moby Grape . . .) -- and many tracks recorded at their home studio in Palo Alto. 100% unadulterated West Coast guitar psych and hard rock that recalls QMS and even Kurihara-era White Heaven." - Guerssen.

"Madagascar is an island that would bleed into obscurity if not for the rhythm of its name and the mysterious tailwind that follows it. Filled with natural wonder, its a land where places, conversations, and names are spoken with a liquid tongue, where people and setting come together to create a unique array of music and culture. Sites can become extraordinarily charged with an unseen presence where heavy air, summoned spirits, and a transformative energy collapse natural constraints of place. The Malagasy call this mingling of forces maresaka -- a permeating vibrational aura. Maresaka pulls you in and places you in the moment, to participate through a saturation of sounds, smells, and colors. When caught inside this kind of atmosphere, levity comes; you release your anchors of self-control. Beautiful unfettered music surfaces. Here, that is to say where Ive been brought to listen, music lives and moves.

“First reissue; licensed from the original band members. Remastered sound. Includes liner notes and photos. Formed in Glasgow in the early 70s, White Light were not an ordinary Xian rock band; influenced by the explosive sound of The Who, the hard blues of John Mayalls Bluesbreakers, and even Black Sabbath, their live performances across the country featured heavy rock sounds, howling feedback, phased lighting effects, and commitment to the real enjoyment of rock music. They were formed not to play in churches, but to take the message to the rock generation in loud clubs, halls, and big rock venues. In 1972, they were finalists in a national rock competition organized by Melody Maker magazine. This event encouraged the band to enter the studio for the recording of their first album. The ultra-obscure Parable was originally released as a private pressing in 1974 (its featured in Hans Pokoras7001 Record Collector Dreams book with the maximum rarity rating). Housed in a mysterious cover, the music is Xian hard psych straight from the garage with lots of raw fuzz guitar and Vox Continental organ. Combining hard rock with heavy blues and dreamy moments, it features the monster sidelong track "Prodigal," which has to be heard to be believed.” - Sommor.

Glissando guitars and meditative synthesizers combine to make timeless and ethereal psychedelia on par with Allens best work in Gong. Includes a bonus 7", pressed on 180 gram vinyl." - Vinyl Lovers.

Artist: ZERO BOYS
Title: History Of
Format: Cass
Label: Magnetic South
Country: USA
Price: $5.00
Reissue of post-"Vicious Circle" tracks by the original Zero Boys lineup originally released on cassette by Affirmation Records. Pro-duplicated & imprinted white shell cassette with b/w J-card & labels.
"It came out of nowhere in 1982, this punk rock/hardcore fireball with the bright yellow sleeve. In one sense, The Zero Boys Vicious Circle was yet another example of how U.S. punk seemed to peak coast to coast that year. But unlike most coastal punk, the Zero Boys were pointing the way to a scene that could accommodate heaping helpings of melody, intelligence, and rock n roll sus, not just turbo-charged ferocity. From 1979 into 83, the Indianapolis based ZBs were the finest hardcore blitz in the Midwest if not all the lower 48 states. Proof is Vicious Circle and the two decades since of copyists, bootleggers, practitioners and reunion concert pogoers. Though before and after that LPs 1982 release they recorded the Livin in the 80s 7", songs for three comps and released the post-mortem History Of... cassette revealing their transformation into a toured band warming to the metaphysical and their demise while still waving torches of rock n roll panache. ... Yeah, they played shows with Minor Threat, Dead Kennedys, Subhumans, and others but in Terry "Hollywood" Howes guitar there was harmonious terror and unstoppable cadence. Terrys licks and chops -- a leap beyond two or three chord punk -- offered a zone and measured count for drummer Mark Cutsinger and bassist David "Tufty" Clough, a rhythm unit in par with the Minutemen if not The Meters, to run lines like quicksilver. Meanwhile, frontman, Paul "Z" Mahern provides a constant wash from beginning to end. When the Ramones lost it, the Zero Boys found it; Adding a slam brigade fist to the Blitzkrieg Beat. The Zero Boys managed to come with one of the best early 80s punk records, or one of the best records ever, period. Between Vicious Circle and History Of, the entire recorded output of this legendary Midwest punk bands original line up is, finally, collected.” - Jack Rabid and Eric Weddle.

Artist: ZEV
Title: Eleven Mirrors to the Light
Format: CD
Label: Cold Spring
Country: UK
Price: $17.00
"ZEV completes an alchemical exploration of concord and dissonance that began with the cosmological equations of Sum Things (CSR 101CD, 2009) and then clasped the elemental quintet of air, water, fire, earth, and spirit in A Handful of Elements (CSR 182CD, 2013). Now, with Eleven Mirrors to the Light, ZEV plays with the intersection of light and dark, catching waves of luminescence between prisms and mirrors that fragment particles into shimmering washes of sound. ZEVs trademark percussion transforms into glistening soundscapes and drones, one part subterranean and another subatomic." - Cold Spring.
