"PACIFIC CITYS first movie release, is a straight dream download by AR FAUST, with alternative music from the LP. Comes in CD JEWEL CASE...Just imagine.. Charles trying to make a DVD... TIMELESS."

"My intention with PINHEAD IN FANTASIA is to recast Pinhead, as well as FACEHUGGER, and other DREAMGATE MONSTERS into the world of the Renaissance and a world of Pagan beauty. By this they are to find new meaning within this work and begin to be figures with the same purposes but to be in the shadows with pure ecstasy and not torture and hell." - Spencer Clark.

Artist: AKA
Title: Do What You Like
Format: LP
Label: Granadilla Music
Country: Germany
Price: $27.00
"Reissued for the first time. AKA might have been one of the top acts of the Indonesian rock scene in the late 60s and early 70s. It does not necessarily mean that any international audience for heavy rock and psychedelic sounds would have noticed that back then, but we change that now. Do What You Like is a colorful album with a diversity of moods. Of course you find hard-driving, wild, grooving rock with simmering guitars and pumping rhythms. Go to the next song and some gentle, nearly ethereal dreamy psych-pop will alter your mind. Another step ahead on the tracklist and some easy and melodic 60s beat makes you want to dance the night away. The special factor of this album is the musical flavor of Indonesian pop that all of the songs sung in their native tongue show, while the few English tracks can compete against all of the popular hits from those days from American or European acts. AKA know how to heat you up with their psychedelic sound explosions and eruptive beats. They also know how to calm you down again and lay your soul to rest in a flow of gentle harmonies. Fans of 60s power pop with a regional feel presented by bands such as Omega from Hungary and of the 60s U.S. West Coast psych and pop scene will go crazy about this record." - Granadilla Music.

Artist: ANKH & FABRICE BATY
Title: 1973-1977
Format: LP
Label: Vinyl Vidi Vici
Country: France
Price: $29.00
Compilation of recordings by this French psych band in an edition of 300 copies. Includes the songs from the single previously reissued on Cameleon as well as recordings from Fabrice Batys rare "Guitares" LP. On yellow vinyl in gatefold sleeves.

"ANKH is a French group from Normandy (Les Andelys in Eure), formed in autumn 1974 by Fabrice Baty (guitar), Philippe Briard (bass) and Michel Chevalier (drums). In 1976, Philip left the band and was replaced by Renaud Thorez. He had already played with Fabrice in the previous group, COCKROACH, and he was the brother of the wife of Fabrizio, Nathalie, who would join the group on vocals, synths, and percussion. 
ANKH is mainly produced in the department of Eure (Les Andelys, Louviers, Vernon, Evreux), in schools, outdoor festivals and municipal festivals where they organized their own gigs and it is the ticket to the latter that the 45t, released in late 76, was distributed. The band broke up in the fall of 1977.” - Vinyl Vidi Vici.




Artist: BING SELFISH
Title: Selfish Works
Format: 12
Label: El Frenzy/Noise Method
Country: UK
Price: $36.00
"125 original records from 1983 with a numbered, limited edition silkscreened jacket. Further artpop adventures from the post-Homosexuals / This Heat / Rock in Opposition squats – in exile.... A 1981 junket to Barcelona found Bing Selfish, Amos a/k/a Jim Whelton, Chris Gray, Rob Storey, and Milk From Cheltenham recording three tracks for a compilation LP, Domestic Sampler - UMYU, alongside the once-and-future stars of the Barcelona underground. Bing and Joe Torres (a/k/a Victor Lounge of Milk From Cheltenham) stayed on, and a few months later welcomed back Rob, Chris and Rodrigo Lodwick to tape an Amos & Sara LP. The only recordings to come of this adventure, however, were the five Bing Selfish-led tracks on Selfish Works. The 12" features those in boldface above, plus Rita Chuli (who married Lepke Buchwalter and had a cassette on her own), Gabriel – who’d played sax on the MfC track for UMYU, and Enric Villalba (a/k/a Victor Nubla), one of the locals whod helped organize UMYU. Selfish Works was pressed back in London through Robs Noise Method label, although its officially on Bings own El Frenzy imprint. Hardcore Messthetics/D.I.Y. fans will appreciate that most of the songs are introduced by fragments from the traditional Spanish music tape reels over which they were recording… As with the Hot Club Murphy 12", the original jackets were screened as needed: two basic designs were used, and both were modified as the screens degenerated. The "new" screened jacket combines both designs, adding a proper track-list and, for the first time, personnel-credits. (Cover #1 had ten small drawings on a hand-colored paste-on; version #2 had a drawing of Bing. On the back both featured an enigmatic story that loosely incorporated the song-titles, but no other info...)." - Hyped to Death.

Title: Physical Emotions
Format: 7"
Label: Drag City
Country: USA
Price: $6.00
""Its a banger, baby, from fore to aft! On the A-side, the roiling of downtown terror and multi-channel frequency overspill that flows freely through Black Bananas sound has been combed up into a glamour do, ready to groove through a night on the town. Waves of the late light beam across the water, cool in the evening as we head out to tha club, where the guitars are MIDI, the synths bump n grind the beat and arc melodies high above the crowds head, and the gasping of the clubbers is always on the one. Jennifers sweet delivery is an ode to the stone soul joy of being out on the tiles. This tracks a blast from an alternate dimension of weirdness, perfectly nailed from top to bottom. Top of the charts man! Black Bananas will have you slippin on the dance floor with their all-new sound, Physical Emotions." - Drag City.

Artist: BRAEN RASKOVICH
Title: Abnormal Sensations
Format: LP
Label: Cacophonic
Country: UK
Price: $26.00
"Collectively known under their production pop group moniker The Pawnshop, Italian giallo/Spaghetti Western legends Alessandro Alessandroni, Giuliano Sorgini and Giulia De Mutiis (using their giallo/psych alter-egos of Braen, Raskovich and Kema) would reconvene behind the curtain in 1973 to craft this lost full-length LP as a mythical addition to their tiny group discography. Pinpointing a bona fide crossroads between the composers individual library grails The Underground and The Living Dead at the Manchester Morgue, this previously commercially-unreleased slice of abstract giallo stoner-funk combines Alessandronis inimitable twang-happy growling fuzz and desperately inquisitive guitar/harp/dulcimer manipulations (akin to his work on All the Colors of the Dark, Marquis De Sade and Danger Diabolik) with Sorginis eerie industrial scrapes, moaning echoes and face-slapping percussion grooves (found on his rare TV soundtracks like Zoo Folle or the undercover work he did for library labels like Leo, Leonardi, National, and Lupus). The inclusion of Alessandronis wife Giulia De Mutiis on groaning, wordless vocal duties not only completes The Pawnshop trinity but adds the essential giallo sheen popularized by Morricone-regular Edda DellOrso (evoking clear comparisons to that of Lizard in a Womans skin and Veruschka). For fans of Giulias work on Bruno Nicolais The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave (dir. Jess Franco) and most notably Morricones Sospiri Da Una Radio Lontana (from Henri Verneuils The Night Caller) and Venus (on the Nereide label), the distinction glistens in the detail. These 12 tracks were circulated amongst TV and cinema production houses in the mid-70s for potential film synchronization by library label Octopus under the title Judicial Inquiry ("Inchiesta Giudiziaria") in what was perhaps an effort to capture the imagination of directors of the growing trend in Italian crime cinema. Track titles such as "Abnormal Sensations" and "Psychic Getaway," however, indicate the trios natural penchant for the absurd and supernatural, rendering this particular beast quite specific and unique as its own dedicated non-release. For fans of extrovert Italian freak-funk, avant-garde pop and European horror soundtracks, this LP should sit comfortably in the company of your Bruno Nicolai and Gruppo Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza records and draw striking comparisons to international horror soundtracks by Don Gere, Pierre Raph and Andrzej Korzynski, while exposing another secret hiding place for some of Italys finest A-list composers making rich experimental noise for B-movie masterpieces.

Artist: BUGS & RATS
Title: Adidas
Format: LP
Label: Feeding Tube
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Vinylization of a 2010 CD-R by this Quincy, MA trio who have been around since 2003. Their longevity makes it damn odd that this is their first LP. But it is. The fact becomes even odder when you hear how goddamn great the album sounds. Perhaps its only with the coming of bands like Guerilla Toss and NE Patriots that Bugs & Rats are getting their vinyl due. But it should have happened long ago. The real antecedents of their sound seem to lie in the early 90s Scab Rock scene, of which Boston had proponents such as Kilslug, Hullaballoo, Nightstick and whatnot. Theirs was a sonic collision of post-no wave noise, Crypt-oid garage rock, and sludge metal. Its local thread was all but erased by the ascendant dogshit and vom of bands like the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, but a smoldering spark lurked in Quincy. Feeding Tube is happy to fan this sputtering flame into a roar. And Adidas is it. This album follows a beautiful blabbermouth trajectory of non-core/non-noise aggression with riffs, drums and vocals, blaring and blasting into the darker regions of the New England night. The pace is alternately slugged and frantic, just as it should be. And the more I hear the scream of their feedback, the warmer I feel. You will too." --Byron Coley, 2014; edition of 250, hand-painted silk screen gatefold jackets by Kellzo of Bugs & Rats.

Title: Lifelesslost
Format: LP
Label: Golden Lab
Country: UK
Price: $30.00
"Ltd to 100 copies on black 140g vinyl w/silk screened cover art

Its been said that Amherst, MAs Josh Burkett is an "unsung hero,” but really thats a lot of hogwash. Among the "right company” (Corsano, Coley, Valentine, etc), hes sung loud and long. Former member of one of my favourite groups Vermonster, owner of the glorious Mystery Train record shop and deeply weird label Mystra Records, and a musician of ungodly skill, dexterity and wilful oddness, hes had regrettably few vinyl releases to his name in recent years. This re-issue of his finest solo album aims to address that. Never has a musicians output more accurately represented his personality and Josh is a distinctly unobtrusive but delightful and deeply interesting man. His voice – quiet and a little bashful – gives the listener a clear choice: listen carefully or lose out on something amazing. And his (acoustic and electric) guitar playing, often overlaid with all manner of other instrumentation and recorded ambient sound, is, I say without hesitation, nothing short of sublime. Humbled to be able to put this out into the world once more." - Golden Lab.

Artist: CARTER, CHRISTINA
Title: Masque Femine
Format: LP
Label: Root Strata
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
“Masque Femine should be regarded as a total work -- much like a film, a ballet, a building, or, an altarpiece -- rather than as an album of individual songs. And, its fundamental subject should not be understood to be romantic love. Christina Carter was born in the bayou city of Houston, Texas in November of 1968, and co-founded the group Charalambides there in December of 1991. Ever since then, she has deeply mined her own vein of sound-as-music with voice, guitar (both electric and acoustic), piano, and keys. For the past several years, Christina has utilized extended improvisational guitar passages within and without song-medley structures; re-contextualized certain Charalambides songs within the spare single guitar/voice form that birthed much of the groups music; and recently, investigated "the song" as a thing unto itself, specifically concentrating on "the word" -- both in her own lyric writing and her interpretations of the work of other lyricists.” - Root Strata.

Artist: CHA CHA GUITRI
Title: French Synth Wave: St Etienne - 1981
Format: LP
Label: Born Bad
Country: France
Price: $19.00
"LP version with 8-page large format booklet with notes and photos. Unless you are a monomaniacal specialist of the 1980s, there is very little chance that Cha Cha Guitri will ring any bells. And yet this band, buried away in Saint-Etienne -- in the very heart of France -- could have easily rivaled Elli & Jacno or Telex. Emblematic of that French touch which tinged new-wave with a bit of sunshine, their electro, retro-futuristic songs have that slightly sweet and sour flavor between casualness and sophistication. The birth of Cha Cha Guitry in 1981 was a landmark for its members, Serge, Dominique, Charly and Marie. Once their hippie phase was over, the guitar, sax and flute were abandoned in the closet while machines took over: an EMS AKS synth, a Roland SH101, and a Roland TR808 rhythm-box. The two couples met in the congenial atmosphere of their "home studio" to record their songs. The boys composed and sang, and the girls sang and designed minimal costumes -- the elegance of which was enhanced by some DIY touches: no need for fabric, paper will perfectly do. As deceivingly offhanded stylists, the Cha Cha crew carefully crafted a music that was both studied and charmingly quirky, making collages of raw pop materials and avant-garde stuff. Scissors in hand, they took what they wanted from the Bauhaus, Moholy Nagy, or Sonia Delaunays dresses, taping these iconic bits onto the sounds of Kraftwerk and what remained of pop culture (comics, movies, songs of the 30s or easy listening). Cha Cha Guitry, wisely ingenious, modeled tropical landscapes out of cellophane, thus elaborating their own synthetic surrealism. The adventure would not last more than a few years, just long enough to record two cassettes on Kronchtadt Tapes (a local label central to the underground scene that was more into punk) and give three concerts. As isolated as they were in Saint-Etienne, they got nevertheless noticed by Alain Maneval who programmed them regularly on Europe 1, and they could even be heard on Radio Gay. So they went to Paris to meet a manager from Virgin, but they never got the luck, rare in those days, to release a vinyl. Their arty, pop style was also too DIY for Agnes Bs freshly-opened shop: their second cassette, though wonderfully packed in a Plexiglas case resembling an icicle, was not to the brands taste. Serge has been living in the same flat since 1975 and never got rid of his synthesizer. The studio where Cha Cha recorded their songs has not changed a bit. Everything has been kept, ordered, and archived, from the piles of magnetic tapes to the hundreds of Polaroid shots. Born Bad Records are happy to offer you a selection of these. Greetings from Synth-Etienne." - Born Bad.

Artist: CHAPMAN, MICHAEL
Title: The Polar Bear
Format: CD
Label: Blast First Petite
Country: UK
Price: $18.00
"The Polar Bear is the third album in Yorkshire-born composer, singer, guitarist, and maverick troubadour Michael Chapmans series of improvisational music. The first, 2011s The Resurrection and Revenge of the Clayton Peacock (PTYT 068CD), was Wire magazines #5 album of the year. It was widely well-received by press and fans alike as another highpoint in Chapmans late-blooming career, which has been boosted by the public recognition of his talents from the likes of Thurston Moore, Jack Rose, and Will Oldham. The second in the series, 2012s Pachyderm (PTYT 070CD/LP), is a minimalist masterpiece, a single-chord ambient work quite unlike anything Chapman had ever done before. It won him further widespread supportive reviews and a sold-out UK tour with Moore; out of that tour comes the duo heard on The Polar Bears noise epic "Six, Two, Thirteen." The new record also features Chapmans experiments with cello accompaniment, as well as some pieces showcasing his own atmospheric slide guitar work -- further proof of Chapmans relentless search for new musical adventures. Almost half a century after his 1960s beginnings on EMIs legendary Harvest record label, Chapman, at age 73, is playing better than ever." - Blast First Petite.

Country: UK
Price: $24.00
This is the fourth in a series of four limited-edition Chris & Cosey vinyl re-releases from their esteemed catalog. Exotika was originally released by Play It Again Sam in 1987. This hugely popular album includes such Chris & Cosey classics such as the crowd-pleasing "BeatBeatBeat," the haunting ballad "Dr. John (Sleeping Stephen)" and the original version of the seminal title track "Exotika," which was adopted as an electronica anthem, most notably on the GOA scene and in the U.S. West and East Coast gay clubs of the 1980s. Remastered by Chris Carter and pressed on red vinyl. Includes a glossy insert with historic photographs and press clippings." -CTI "Chris & Cosey beat most of 87s mainstream dancefloor contenders on their own territory of sheer pleasure, urged joy. BeatBeatBeat is extreme, a revelation." -Ian Gittins, Melody Maker 1987 "Chris & Cosey have made a great dance record, but its their kind of dancing. No junk here. Theyre crazy enough to be sincere about their musical Pleasureland and they want to share their discovery. Come and feel the sound as though your life depends on it: if it were up to them, it would depend on it." -Rockpool, 1987

Originally released to much acclaim in 1981 by Rough Trade, Heartbeat was the first in a long line of groundbreaking albums by Chris Carter & Cosey Fanni Tutti. This early example of C&C features cut-up sampled voices, Coseys distorted guitar, industrial sequences, melodious synths and cinematic sweeps. These albums, which have been unavailable on vinyl for more than 20 years, have been painstakingly remastered by Chris Carter from the original master tapes specifically for these vinyl re-releases and showcase what many consider to be some of Chris & Coseys finest works from their eighties period. Each of the albums is presented on different colored vinyl, in a specially "remastered" sleeve, which also includes a 12" B/W double-sided insert of archive photos, clippings and texts." - CTI.

The album contains Chris & Coseys trademark infectious rhythms, melodic tunes, edgy guitar, wailing cornet and of course, Coseys unique vocals -- which give a dark and sensual edge to the production. Remastered edition on grey vinyl. Includes a glossy insert with historic photographs and press clippings." -CTI "A vice-like turn of the screw that is at once dreamy, hard and compelling. A gathering of all those forces which give electronic music a heart of its own.

"Coïtus Int. hailed from Utrecht, the Netherlands. The band started out as a typical schoolboys punk rock band in the late 70s. They made their vinyl debut with a 7 (Dead Excitement EP) released on the local Rock Against label in 1980. At that time, many more p-bands appeared on the Utrecht scene, and Coïtus Int. quickly changed their style to a slower, more radical and just as heavy sound, with a barracuda bass style that would be part of their trademark sound, all influenced by groups such as Joy Division,Southern Death Cult, Gang Of Four, The Stranglers (for the bass sound) and Pere Ubu (for the vocals). In the years to come three albums were released, all on their own independent (and nameless) label, and made with different drummers:Coïtus Int. (1981), Sex for the Wealthy (1984), andRules for Making Love and Babies (1991). Sex for the Wealthy is now reissued for the first time on vinyl, 30 years after its original release.

"Includes a large format 12-page booklet. Originally released in 1981, Kollaps is the seminal, form-destroying debut album by German industrial pioneers Einstürzende Neubauten (trans. "Collapsing New Buildings"). The bands use of junk metal, power drills, jackhammers and other surprising instrumentation would come to define their challenging and continually inventive career, making them not only one of the originators of industrial music, but one of the worlds most influential and far-reaching forces at the intersection between avant-garde and rock music. Formed in 1980 in the wave of the Dadaist movement Die Geniale Dilletanten, after a series of devastating live performances and personnel changes (one of which briefly involving electronic musician Gudrun Gut), the bands line-up cemented itself with core members Blixa Bargeld, F.M. Einheit (previously of Hamburg-based post-punk band Abwärts) and N.U. Unruh. On Kollaps, a violent collision of urban primitivism and punk sensibilities, the trio declared war on every conventional way of listening, combining an intense mess of atonal guitar drones with brutal scrap metal percussion. At a time in Germany in which the wall encircling West Berlin transformed the city into a state-subsidized, near-paradisiacal freak-enclave for artists, Einstürzende Neubauten offered cathartic cascades of noise, employing steel parts, tin drums, drills, hammers, saws and untuned electric guitars, all crowned by Bargelds bloodcurdling screams and feverish, apocalyptic texts. Kollaps, with its atonal essence, embodied exactly what the title suggested: decay and destruction, illness, doom and death. Years later, with the fall of the Berlin wall behind it, Kollaps still sounds as radical and extreme an artistic statement as ever." - Potomak.

Title: Venice
Format: Double LP
Label: Touch
Country: UK
Price: $21.00
“Special 10th anniversary edition & first time available on vinyl. Gatefold double LP release -- 14 tracks. Artwork and photography by Jon Wozencroft. Featuring David Sylvian (vocals) and Burkhard Stangl(guitar). Venice, the fourth studio album by Christian Fennesz, finds electronic music at a crossroads between its early status as digital subculture, and the feeling that there has to be something more, an emotional quality that rises above noise and moves towards melody and rapture. It was voted No. 3 in The Top 50, The Wire, December 2004, was album of the week at BBCi on its release and remains Christian Fenneszs best-selling record to date. Prefix (USA) noted: "Although Fenneszs breakout record Endless Summer was followed by a live release and a collaboration with Jim ORourke and Peter Rehberg as Fenn OBerg, Venice is the true heir to that albums ascendant pop. Venice is not as unabashedly poppy as its predecessor (the lack of Beach Boysreferences can attest to that), but still mines much the same vein. It was marked by critics at the time as a move away from the relatively robotic music spawned by the IDM craze of the late nineties. Instead, its melodic, emotive tracks foresaw an electronic music that could be purely human." Pitchfork Media (USA), in a lengthy review, also noted: "Venices quality extends beyond its sound. Touch proprietor Jon Wozencroft -- through his breathtaking design and photography -- continues to fight the good fight against records-as-pure-data by making the CD a value-added prospect." and The Declaration Online (Web): "Two blue empty row boats left listless on rippling water. Red orange green riverbed foliage reflected in the waters gauzy oil slick surface. An airport enveloped in dull gray stratus and snow. Upon seeing the photography and packaging accompanying Christian Fenneszs latest recording, Venice, it is clear that the record label Touch remains intent on not simply putting out records but creating audio-visual imprints dedicated to inextricably tying sound and vision.”” - Touch.

"An outstanding raga-like drone LP with a distinctive cosmic vibe, Futuro Antico was a short-lived collaboration between the two Italians Walter Maioli (Aktuala), Riccardo Sinigaglia and Gabin Dabiré (from Burkina Faso). The synthesis between ancient, ethnic and analog electronic music is just perfect, the minimalist repetition with slight changes lends associations to slow growth; cyclic repetition gives the listener an opportunity to discover the sounds, to meditate, to go into the music, join the same journey through ancient, primitive cultures and modern electronic soundscapes. Originally released in 1980, the sound is completely analog and warm. This limited to 300 copies reissue maintains the original tape artwork, with info and photos." - Black Sweat.

"Following up from the success of his emphatic PAN releases Dutch Tvashar Plumes (PAN 036LP) and Diversions 1994-1996 (PAN 033LP) in 2012, PAN is excited to announce Koch (pronounced "cotch"), the new album from Londons Lee Gamble. Sharing some stylistic affinity with his previous records, which excavated his deeply personal history with UK jungle and rave, and techno, this new work dives even deeper to reveal a singular and intimate musical vantage point, shifting to approaching music as projection, state, hallucination, another place. In Koch, we experience an artist constructing a future, after time spent deconstructing the past. In the music we witness such dimensional abstraction, zooming between epic macro-scenery and claustrophobically close detail, disorientation and absolute focus. Rhythms fuse together and phase apart, club tracks tunnel into an anxious wilderness, with themes and textures emerging as threads throughout the record, wormholing between each track. There is a sense of the seen and the unseen, an honest tension between music as function (for this world) and as artistic exploration (for another world) as cracks in the surface appear to reveal the odd and alien minutiae within. Koch represents an intimate and revelatory new phase in Lee Gambles practice. Producing tracks that can live and grow on their own in a club or personal listening environment, the artists exploratory framework creates threads of consistency and tension between disparate spaces, locations, and mental states." - Pan.

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

Recorded pretty simply, with a portable 4-track, Sony stereo mic and an upright piano. When I wasnt recording songs I was hiking several miles to the beach. The path wound through the ruins of several old estates and a small village. The album is a document. A nod to that daily walk. Failed structures. Living in the remains of love. I left the songs the way they came (microwave beep from when power went out after a storm); I hope that the album bears some resemblance to the place that I was in." - Liz Harris

Title: The Hildreth Tapes
Format: Triple LP

Country: UK
Price: $46.00
"To source the material for Neil Michael Hagerty & The Howling Hexs Hildreth Tapes, Golden Lab approached Matt Valentine (Tower Recordings/MV & EE) as he was both a big Neil fan and had the key to the "Tapers Pit" city. He got back to us right away and told us he was on it and, within about a week, hed mailed us a data CD with a note marked, "Howdy Nick, heres a whole lotta booty. You GOTTA credit Jim Hildreth." There were seven performances on the disc captured from six shows and over eight hours of material. Hildreth, we learned, is a notorious NYC taper whos turned up to practically every weirdo show in town armed with a pair of binaural mics and a digital recording device, and, after Matt put out the appeal, hed replied to say he had these shows recorded from over a 10-year period, most of the shit being from the first half of the 00s with the exception of one show recorded in 2010, and was more than happy to donate them. We took a listen. Sound quality-wise, the stuff varied as mics were placed in different spots at each show so there was no real consistency there, but what did come through were the performances. Long, drawn-out solos with intensely applied wah from 2001/2002... relentless, insanely extended repetitions of All-Night Fox riffs from 2005... cabaret-style medleys with paradoxically slapdash precision from 2010. All incredible and, on top of all that, ready-themed by the fact of its source: these were The Hildreth Tapes. Golden Lab set about the lengthy process of mastering it in a tiny flat in South Manchester in the winter of 2012. The result is this 3LP set, which features typically gorgeous, gatefold artwork by the venerable Lucy Jones. The sound quality has been homogenized to the best of their capability to give smoothness of flow to the sequencing (the label decided not to present the material in chronological order, rather in order of vibe -- this is just what felt right) and the required kick-up-the-arse where mic placement had failed to do so. And they think they have managed to get it sounding pretty sweet. Finally, Jim Hildreth gets some credit for his years of efforts in the name of preservation." - Golden Lab

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.

Truly one of the great outsider creations ever spawned under a full moon." - FE. "The circumstances behind Heitkotter are obscure and confusing: all that is known for certain is that Steve Heitkotter recorded the LP sometime before 1971, when he and his reluctant brother Bill took unsolicited promotional copies to eight local FM station in Californias San Joaquin Valley. Whoever else may have participated is a mystery: Steven had spent the mid 60s drumming for Fresno garage mainstays the Road Runners, so he had some connections left, but the time after the Runners had reportedly brought him to psychotropic drugs and mental instability, and his family doubts that he was on good terms with enough musicians even to organize a drag jam of messed up desert loner westcoast churning and meandering, like a Magic Band gig falling apart (Paul Major). The LPs murky sound and symbiotically disintegrating musicianship do seem to suggest that the session was cut live to four track, but Bill Heikotter swears that Steve was a loner at the time, alienated from his former bandmates, and that he recorded the album entirely by himself. That makes the amnesia of the musicians, who intermittently forget how to play their instruments, all the more curious, as Steve himself was a good guitarist and quasi-professional drummer, though the influence of drugs, fatigue, or apathy seems plausible enough." - Time-Lag.

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.

“This LP contains Music Out of the Moon and Perfume Set to Music, containing some of the first electronic chillout music ever composed, originally released in 1947 and 1948 on 10" 78 RPM. An unusual mix of different styles and music represented by the three men who contributed to the album: Dr. Samuel J. Hoffman played Theremin for several sci-fi and horror movies during the 40s and the 50s -- masterpieces such as Spellbound and The Day the Earth Stood Still. Les Baxter "The Father of Exotica" and his dreams of Pacific and Oriental islands can also be found here -- musical impressions of tropical fantasies. Harry Ravel is also featured, a talented English composer of musical theater and soundtracks for Hollywood movies. These two records were unique collaborations between three disparate talents, who envisioned a world of sound inspired by science fiction, perfumes, and meditative moments. Without them, the Theremin could perhaps never have been considered in a pop context, and projects as disparate as "Good Vibrations" and Silver Apples might never have happened. The influence of this music is clear in the multiform artist Sun Ra, who covered the song "Possession" on his second LP Jazz by Sun Ra. Digitally remastered and limited.” - Black Sweat.

"HOTCHKISS is a French band born in May, 1984 in Aurillac (between Toulouse and Clermont-Ferrand), a rather isolated area where hard rock is struggling to make itself heard. At one time, however, a dozen groups crossed iron in the rooms of Aurillac, but only for about a year or thereabouts. It is this period that saw the formation of HOTCHKISS. Three musicians who "struggled" in various local groups decide to do everything possible to succeed: Serge Nangeroni on guitar and vocals, Jerome Hubert Joly on bass, and Thierry on drums. The first objective of the group is obviously the development of a solid repertoire but soon they focus on recording a single. The three musicians think releasing a single is an effective way to attract the attention of a hard rock audience… The three protagonists do not hide their interest in all the mythical groups of Detroit (late 60s, early 70s) who lead to revolt through violence and perversion..." - from the original press release.

“Kayla Cohen, a.k.a. Itasca, is a folk guitarist and songwriter from New York State. She has released several small press CD-rs and cassettes over the past five years, and began recording as Itasca after a move to Los Angeles in 2012. She records at home, taking inspiration from the fringes of LAs open space and natural land.

On Itascas latest full-length, Unmoored By The Wind, Kayla Cohen achieves new levels of clarity and expansiveness. Where 2012s Grace Riders on the Road reveled in homemade intimacy, Unmoored By The Wind  opens to the world, reaching a timeless, near-baroque yearning; each of these eleven tracks burns with a unique vision. At once soft-spoken and virtuosic, Cohens fingerpicking mesmerizes, laying gauzy groundwork for vocal work David Keenan rightfully cited as “courtly…dazzling.” Its a spacious set of songs, one you can wander into, flowing seamlessly between wistful interludes a la Bob Desper and fully-fledged verses of powerful, often beguiling imagery. “Two male shapes are standing/ Shrouded in white cloth” sings Cohen on “Natures Gift,” with a plaintive candidness that echoes Sibylle Baier. “Theyre looking at me/ Sort of smiling/ Seems as if Ive called them here.” Cohens voice has a windburnt quality reminiscent of Lal Waterson or Collie Ryan, but its tempered with sweetness, and on songs like “Colt In Hiding” she realizes an angelic luster. More than ever before, though, Cohens confident singing is laid bare; vocals ride on top of arrangements, taking their rightful place in the forefront. The effect is arresting. Cohen has achieved new levels of clarity, while staying true to the seductive ghostliness that has come to characterize her sound.” - New Images.

Artist: KALMA, ARIEL
Title: An Evolutionary Music (Original Recordings: 1972 - 1979)
Format: Double LP
Label: Rvng International
Country: USA
Price: $24.00
“An Evolutionary Music (Original Recordings: 1972 – 1979)compiles unreleased recordings from the archives of multiversal artist Ariel Kalma. Concerned as much with musicality as spiritual facility, Kalmas work vibrates aside fellow travelers along the great rainbow in curved air of the 1970s avant-garde. Ariel Kalmas boundary-blurring electronic music is heard here in radiant detail across a selection of work spanning his early free-jazz and spoken word trips to his infinite modular synthesizer and analogue rhythm machine meditations. Kalmas story is one of world travel, musical discovery and ego-abandonment. Yet for an artist who often discarded public recognition in favor of the ascetic truths in music making, An Evolutionary Music offers the imprint of an outright auteur. Born in France, but rarely in one place for long, Ariel Kalmas 1970s migrations took flight through the decades furthest spaces of musical and spiritual invention. As a hired horn for well-known French groups, the young musician toured as far as India in 1972, a place where Kalma found an antidote to rock n rolls glitz and glamour in sacred music traditions. Kalma would later return to India and learn circular breathing techniques enabling him to sustain notes without pause against tape-looping harmonies configured through his homemade effects units. Those effects evolved from Kalmas loyalty to a beloved dual ReVox set-up— two tape machines “chained” together to form a primitive delay unit. Over looped saxophone melodies, Kalma would mix in all shades of polyphonic color, synthesizing fragments of poetry with ambient space or setting modal flute melodies to rippling drum machine patterns and starlit field recordings. The results collapse distinctions between “electro-acoustic”, “biomusicology” and “ambient” categorization. In France during the mid-1970s, Kalma was staffed as a technician at Pierre Henrys legendary Institut National Audiovisuel, Groupe de Recherches Musicales (INA GRM) studios – the same music concréte laboratory that spawned masterpieces by members Luc Ferrari, Iannis Xenakis, and Bernard Parmegiani. Like his predecessors and colleagues at INA GRM, Kalmas relationship to sound was both formal and non-hierarchical. To Kalma, all music existed as universal patterns, in perfect harmony with the people, places and environments it was created. Kalmas recorded output of the 1970s culminated in the now scarcely-available Les Temps des Moissons (trans. The Time of Harvest) in 1975 and Osmose in 1978, a masterpiece of birdsong exploration. Osmose is double album featuring sculptorRichard Tinti, who had supplied Kalma with hours of field recordings from the rainforests of Borneo. With somber organ textures and wistful sax blended seamlessly into the wild of the forest sounds, Osmose avoids simple soundscaping through Kalmas careful arrangements, allowing each life form its own harmonic gravity. The backdrop of An Evolutionary Music depicts Kalmas adventures as a world traveller on the cosmic path of inner discovery and musical innovation. Coinciding with United States bicentennial in 1976, Kalma made his way to New York to join the exclusive musical-spiritual collective Arica, and ended up crashing in the Cathedral of Saint John the Divines basement. At night, Ariel played the churchs organ and ventured out to mix it up with like-minded musicians in the Village. It was here that he met a musical hero, Don Cherry, an artist of much consequence and similarity to Kalma. An Evolutionary Music harvests uncatalogued music made between Kalmas private press records and onward through the many small-batch cassette releases Kalma would tender. With this collection of musical hybridity and distinct genre-corrosion, Ariel Kalmas righteous bucking of both popular music trends and the academic tenets of the avant-garde falls squarely in the spirit of other renegades of sacred new-music such as Terry Riley, La Monte Young, and Charlemagne Palestine. Extensive liner notes and artist interviews were overseen by New York writer Jesse Jarnow. The collection was assembled by RVNG and Ariel Kalma himself, who continues making music to this day.” - Rvng.

"Maybe the ultimate DIY lo-fi LP in rock history, putting Royal Trux, Sebadoh and all their 90s/2000s clones to shame. The recording and playing is crude and inept, but the songs all have clever lyrics and catchy melodies. The band is named after a character from Nabokovs "Pale Fire" who commits suicide at the end, an irony as tragically, one of the members later did so in real life. The opener, "I Love Rock N Roll", sets the tone with its scathing sarcasm about the (then) current state of rock music ("Today theres more talent in rock & roll todays singers sing about uplifting things." and "Dont you think that Prince is better than Little Richard; with that pompadour, he looks like LITTLE RICHARD.") The feedback-laden string-shredding guitar solo (if you dare call it that) beats out any other 80s/90s VU/Lou Reed wannabes. "Rock & roll is worse than (arbitrary or our material). Its excessive and it ruins songs!" The next song, "Hang Around", is a jaunty Kinks-influenced ramble with Ray Davies inflected vocals, and is as sloppy as anything the Davies Bros ever concocted. These two songs pretty much dictate the intended musical direction of the whole album - VU lo-fi sleaze melded with Kinkdom melodic sensibilities on the slower and less frenetic songs, though they are as lo-fi as the rockers. There is one other song worth singling out. A clumsy epitaph for Ian Curtis veers into a music hall chorus about "The King of Comedy". It has one of the more memorable attempts at rhyming ("Ian Curtis was a true original. His Jim Morrison influence was so subliminal.") as well as a genius fragmented attempt at a piano solo that literally runs out of gas after about 10 seconds. The cover is as lo-fi as the sounds it contains. A wraparound slick is pasted on so it covers the LP opening and must be slit open to remove the record. The primitive cartoon-like drawing of the band shown as a trio even though they were a duo - the third is a friend who is listed as a member - or is it really Charles Kinbote himself?" - Mike Ascherman (contributor to Acid Archives, Enjoy The Experience, etc..).

For Gongs, Laurent returns to his soundscape approach not heard since the Xinjiang LP (2011) and further develops his unique re-versions around the extensive gong orchestra recordings he made on location in the remote regions of Cambodia & Laos. All tracks were recorded on location and re-arranged by Laurent Jeanneau in Dali, Paris & Berlin. Vinyl pressing of 500 copies.” - Discrepant.

"The title of the pieces of this record, Hiruko and Ebisu, are the two names of one mythical being in Japanese mythology. Hiruko is a firstborn child of the god, who was deserted in the sea, because he could not stand up by three years old. He drifted ashore to the land of human beings, and was cherished by the people. Then he was brought up as a god, and was worshipped by the people as Ebisu. Somehow I was haunted by the story all the time during the working period. Therefore the names naturally became the titles. Afterwards I knew that Ebisu is also an alias of Ezo which was the old name of northern part of Japan. So it was adopted as the album title. Although the theory that Ezo equate with Ainu seems to be disputed sometime, I chose the name as a tribute to my favorite Ainu mythologies, and to the folks. The image on the cover is Ebisu which has visited in my mind at the time. Although its quite different from the traditional image, the sound source of the pieces were all produced by found-object which were mostly found from daily commodities. The resonance of the inside of objects and the resonance of the recorded spaces were also treated as the material. The process to find an object which is usually not used as a musical instrument was considered as a part of the execution. Therefore the founders name of some of the objects were mentioned in the cover. Also the vinyl record was fatally chosen for the album as an object which must be worn and be degraded by the condition and the frequency of the use. The noises by dusts and surface scratches on the disk should be listened as a part of the piece". -Hitoshi Kojo.

Title: Babylon
Format: LP
Label: Roaratorio
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
“Turkish free-improv group KonstruKt was formed in 2008 by guitarist Umut Çağlar, and since their inception, theyve gained notice through their collaborations with such old-guard stalwarts as Evan Parker, Marshall Allen and Peter Brotzmann. The latter introduced them to the legendary Joe McPhee at the Krakow Jazz Autumn festival, and after striking up a friendship, they invited him to join them in Istanbul for a concert in March of 2014. Babylon was recorded the day after he arrived, with no prior rehearsal or discussion, although the seamless meshing could fool anyone into thinking that they were a longtime working group. Çağlar came from an electronic music background before delving into free jazz, and its reflected in the incorporation of moogs & a theremin into the ensembles arsenal. The music itself swings from space-raga improv to soaring, full-throated anthemic melodies; some sort of Joe Meek jazz world where bird squeal falsettos pierce through a current of drums, only to struggle for breath, come up laughing, and take off far above. McPhee says, “These guys are the real deal,” and he should know. Download coupon included.” - Roaratorio.

Title: The Spacey Bruce Lacey: Film Music and Improvisations Vol. 2
Format: LP
Label: Trunk
Country: UK
Price: $21.00
The second of two volumes. “Bruce Lacey is the quintessential British eccentric. Bruce Lacey is an artist, a musician, a filmmaker, a shaman, a genius and visionary. Since the 1950s hes made film, music, art and performances, and collaborated with everyone fromThe Beatles to Throbbing Gristle. He was part of the groundbreaking Cybernetic Serendipity exhibition in 1968. He even built a robot that won the Alternative Miss World. This is the first time his extraordinary music has been released. Made and recorded using household objects as well as a modified synthesizer (made by a schoolboy in the early 1970s), it ranges from abstract tribal concrète to droning electronic trance. The music will be released across two separate LPs and one CD. Included will be a fine essay about the history of this inspiring figure by BFI/Flipside archivist Will Fowler. Bruce Lacey has been a busy man. Since the 1950s hes been making film, making music, making art, sculpture, rituals, performances, and more besides. Many of his films have explored the basics of life and sex all with a sprinkle of irony, realism and ritualism. Many of his films have required music, music which Lacey made himself, improvising with bottles, rattles, typewriters and a tape machine. By the early 1970s, Lacey was exploring stone circles and ancient rights; hed also bought a home-made synthesizer from a schoolboy whod advertised it in Exchange & Mart. Hed made it as a home project. A week later Lacey bought a keyboard from another schoolboy in Exchange & Mart. Lacey set about slowly modifying this synth and improvising music influenced by his stone circle visits over the next few years. This music is made only when "The Muse" descends. It is impossible for Bruce to perform this improvised music live. The music he made was occasionally available on cassette at his exhibitions in the 1970s. The late Poly Styrene (who had a copy) compared Laceys music to Tangerine Dream. Lacey had not heard of Tangerine Dream. This is the first time this raw and extraordinary music by one of the UKs most extraordinary men has been made available. Full-color LP sleeve. Includes copious notes and an essay.” - Trunk.

The much-lauded Australian duo was captured live, here, at their seminal Volcanic Tongue in-store performance in Glasgow, Scotland, and its one of those recordings to make you depressed that you werent there. The guitar playing -- slow and sparse and slimily sliding and chugging -- just has all this amazing drag to it, propelled by the wavering internal body clock of singer Michael Zulicki, whose voice has all the deadpan charm of The Dead Cs Michael Morley, but whose songs are reminiscent of Supreme Dicks most out-there shuffles. Splurged over the top of that like hot oil on a skillet are the ultra-slo-mo, totally untutored and blindingly great "solos" (in the loosest sense) of guitarist Pat OBrien." - Golden Lab.

Format: 4 CD Box Set/Book
Label: Alga Marghen
Country: Italy
Price: $116.00
"Alga Marghen very proudly presents the only authorized reissue of all Walter Marchetti original recordings previously released by Cramps Records. An LP sized 4CD box set including La Caccia, In Terram Utopicam, Per La Sete Dellorecchio, Natura Morta and Vandalia. Also included is the new book by Walter Marchetti titled De Musica Inversa, an instruction manual of both theory and practice for the proper and improper use of music. A method for perfecting oneself in composition annotated and commented upon by Gabriele Bonomo." The most amazing thing about music is its exterior aspect. High, vertical, translucent, almost turgid, maybe a bit too monolithic. One should, in any case, give a lot of attention to the large number of interstices which lead to the centre of the ear, wherefrom sounds spread out through a dense network leading to more circuits which direct these same and their relationships directly to the brain, in a logic of musical articulation which is nothing less than frightening. Even if, to attentive listening, dominating all is the eye of silence. CD1, titled La Caccia, includes La Caccia (1965), Adversus (Home-made electric music) (1966) and Osmanthus fragrans (Home-made electric music) (1973). The 16-page booklet presents the original scores, photos of both the 1965 ZAJ performances and of Marchetti recording La Caccia in the 1970s, photos of the concert at Galleria Multhipla in 1974, and the reproduction of the original La caccia LP layout. CD2, titled In Terram Utopican, includes Jaimerais Jouer Avec Un Piano Qui Aurait Une Grosse Queue (1974/75) and Per La Sete Dellorecchio (1981). The 16-page booklet presents the original score of Jaimerais Jouer, photos of the performances in Milano and at the Venice Biennale, and the reproduction of the original In Terram Utopicam LP layout. CD3, titled Natura Morta, includes the piece with the same title from 1980. The 8-page booklet reproduces original photos of the performance at Milanopoesia in 1988, as well as the text titled In My Music. CD4, titled Vandalia, includes Perpetuum Mobile (1981), Song For John Cage (1985) and Le Secche Del Delirio (1989). The 8-page booklet presents the photo of the Perpetuum Mobile performance at Musicalia in 1981, the score of Song For John Cage, the photos of two Musica Da Camera installations, as well as the reproduction of the original Vandalia CD layout. The 180-page De Musica Inversa book and all the texts included in the CD booklets are published in both English and Italian. Too true: in all music there are, in effect, a lot of sounds henceforth-more than that, too many; everything that we listen to has become heavy beyond measure, completely unbearable. Rather than chasing it we should look for how to escape from music. Everything in it is monolithic, frozen, and the notes of music which slowly, more or less, are thickening around the listeners wrap them all in dripping blankets of death.

"Bruce McClure is well known on the international experimental film circuit for his unique projector performances that utilize film loops & modified 16mm projectors. But there is also an equally innovative sound element to his work and he has been embraced by the experimental music community as well. Bruce performed at the Chocolate Monk curated Colour Out of Space festival in 2008 and was chosen as an opening act for Throbbing Gristles reunion tour in the spring of 2009. During McClures performances the optical sound signals from each projector are fed through banks of guitar pedals, manipulated live, and played at extremely high volumes through the p.a. system. The different loops phase in and out of each other resulting in what could be described as a power electronics version of the early tape experiments of Steve Reich and Terry Riley, while sparser sections have an off-kilter minimal techno feel reminiscent of Plastikman and the early works of Thomas Brinkmann. This album features four excerpts from a professionally recorded performance in early 2009 at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, MN.

“To those who swam in a lake filled with the bitter tears of Petra Von Kant, drip with salt when Twin Peaks heroic theme song comes out of a TV or simply burst out in tears whenever a tune sends you back to the darker corners of your childhood, we got bad news: The first full lenght lp by Sarajevo born Belgian Mia Prce (aka Miaux, say "MIO", not the sound cats produce) is stripped from anything that sounds rhythmic, happy or remotely like "hope" and will not stop you from sobbing! "Sehnsucht" is a german word that one could probably translate, though that never fully holds the feeling it owns in German. (kraut) monsters like Michael Rother, Klaus Schultze and so on, translated it best with melancholic sound fields that formed the soundtrack of Miaux´s upbringing, a open sounding uptightness, sad but (really) true (to herself).

Title: Aachen Konzert, July 25th, 1966
Format: CD
Label: Alga Marghen
Country: Italy
Price: $20.00
"This CD presents a concert from July 25th, 1966 in the Theatersaal in Aachen, Germany. In addition to the New York concert on September 12th, 1964, the recordings of this European concert well represent the kind of performances that Charlotte Moorman and Nam June Paik presented in Europe in the second stage of their historical "duo" exhibitions. This Aachen event, in fact, is testimony to the progressive and always more pronounced emergence of meta-musical elements deliberately turned toward the demystification of "ritualistic" meanings of a concert, even while consciously accepting it as an exhibition frame. It is for this reason that the Aachen recording can document, with respect to the comprehensive program, only those works in which the sound matrix constitutes the prominent factor. This is particularly evident, beyond several classic works of their programs like "261.1499 for a String Player" by John Cage, "Duet II" by Toshi Ichiyanagi and a work by Giuseppe Chiari titled "Ave Maria di Schubert" (written for the cellist and dedicated to her) in "Sonata No. 1 for Adults Only" and especially the first performance of "Opera Sextronique," both by Paik, in addition to other pieces by Earle Brown and Sylvano Bussotti. This disc also includes another unspecified rendering of Ichiyanagis "Duet II" and an abbreviated version of Cages "21.1499 for a String Player." A Fluxus concert classic! One of the four Charlotte Moorman CDs originally included in the Cello Anthology box, now individually available for the first time." - Alga Marghen.

"This CD restores three documents from the Charlotte Moorman canon. One happy example is a choral work performed on the 3rd of September 1964, during the second New York Avant Garde Festival, a performance of Jackson Mac Lows composition "The Long Hot Summer." This very relevant concert, distinguished by a marked ethico-political intonation and valence, sees in an exceptional reunion the names of Charlotte Moorman, Nam June Paik, Benjamin Patterson, Philip Corner, and Malcolm Goldstein, as well as Mac Low himself. The voice of Charlotte Moorman, characterized by her unmistakable vital charge, is brought back to us through a long and meaningful interview conducted by Harvey Matusow in October of 1969 in the BBC New York Studios. The soundtrack of the video "Waiting for Commercials," realized by Nam June Paik in 1972 in collaboration with Russell Connor, whose sound collage integrates musical insertions by Charlotte Moorman and David Behrman, completes this anthology put together and offered here. One of the four Charlotte Moorman CDs originally included in the Cello Anthology box, now individually available for the first time." - Alga Marghen.

The program of the concert presented several true war-horses of their exhibitions like "261.1499 for a String Player" by John Cage, "Duet II" by Toshi Ichiyanagi, a work by Giuseppe Chiari titled "Per Arco," written for the cellist and dedicated to her, the premiere of Earle Browns "Synergy," a rare and delightful duet with Terry Jennings on saxophone, an almost systematic version of "Plus Minus" by Karlheinz Stockhausen aided by Paiks Robot.

Chie Mukai: er-hu, voice, percussion, piano, dance Che Chen: violin, voice, percussion, sine wave generators

"While Chie Mukai is pretty well known in Japan, elsewhere in the world she may need some introduction. Born in Osaka, Mukai spent a few formative years in art school workshops led by Taj Mahal Traveler, Takehisa Kosugi, before forming her own groups, Che-Shizu and Enkidu (with the Boredoms Seichi Yamamoto and French sound artist, Eric Cordier). She has also developed a deep and ongoing practice as a solo performer, mostly based around the kokyu (a bowed, two stringed fiddle used in the traditional music of Japan and China, where it is called the ‘er-hu). At one of Mukais performances, one is pretty much guaranteed to hear her shredding on the kokyu and unleashing a series of wordless groans and cries in a voice that is both deeply primordial and unmistakably hers, but she also has a proclivity for using anything and everything within reach. During this set in particular she used, in addition to her kokyu and voice, the house piano, the last bands drum kit, a large plastic bag containing bells, rattles, a recorder, a kalimba and various other toy percussion instruments (you can hear her dump the contents of this bag on stage midway through the second side), and a short wooden stool that happened to be on stage. If this were not enough, we can add to this laundry list the fact that Mukai is constantly in motion, and indeed often spends long intervals of a performance simply moving about in space without making any sound at all. At times graceful, at others childish or even autistic seeming, poise, grace and awkwardness mingle as freely as the disparate sounds from Mukais array of instruments and objects. While we are perhaps more accustomed to sensing sound as a kind of movement, Mukais silent gesticulations often achieve a reversal of this equation; they get us to sense movement as a kind of sound. The word “dance” seems only occasionally appropriate.

Flyers for the workshops Mukai has been leading since the late nineties invariably contain the dashed off slogan: “NO GENRE! NO TECHNIQUE! NO BORDER!” Watching Mukai perform is to see this attitude against specialization put into practice. Her aesthetic is one in which one is an improvisor first and an “instrumentalist” or a “dancer” or “poet” second (if at all?).

During our sound check, I asked her how her kokyu was tuned. She replied, in her labored but deliberate english “I never tune” and then, after a brief pause, “I always tune as I play.” Sure enough, during our set Mukai was constantly tuning on the fly, sometimes to get in tune with me and sometimes, it seemed, to get out of it. as frenetic as our set got at times, Mukai is the most sympathetic of listeners and probably the most adaptable musician I have ever played with. Its an adaptability made possible by a certain attitude towards space. This was our first occasion to play together and during sound check as we talked about how to approach our set, I sensed she was having trouble finding the right words to express a particular idea to me. Hours later, just a few moments before we were supposed to go on, she pulled me aside and said, “Dont think too much about together. We each go our own way, but at the same time.” My Japanese isnt as good as Mukais english, but at that moment I was relieved that I actually knew the right words for the situation. “Wakata,” I replied." - Che Chen.

“PAN is excited to announce the release of Objekts debut album,Flatland. Written between 2012 and 2014, Flatland follows up a succession of dynamic single releases from his base in Berlin, including the recent split 12" with Dopplereffekt on Leisure System,Cactus/Porcupine on Hessle Audio and three 12" singles on his eponymous white label series. His recorded work so far has toyed with techno and electro conventions and has turned dancefloor tropes on their head, tickling the boundaries of what can or cant constitute an effective club record. Approaching the album format on its own terms, Objekt makes full use of the larger canvas to explore a framework of competing truths, multiple perspectives and conflicting accounts. Flatland imagines a world in which any scene can be seen from every angle at once. Semblances and cross-references entwine the 11 original tracks and Objekts existing recordings, shaping a powerful and absorbing album that weaves between the alien and the hauntingly familiar. This is an effervescent body of work, its sound design evoking vivid imagery and conveying the same unmistakable sense of detail and movement for which Objekt has become known. On his first attempt, Objekt has constructed a mature and multilayered album with its own story to tell, from whichever angle you choose to approach it.

Title: Four Manifestations on Six Elements
Format: Double LP
Label: Alga Marghen
Country: Italy
Price: $130.00
"One of Charlemagne Palestines most well-known works, Four Manifestations on Six Elements is presented here as 2LP record edition limited to 120 numbered copies pressed into white vinyl. The gatefold sleeve is silkscreened in one color and presents the original score from 1970. In 1973 Charlemagne Palestine was commissioned to make Four Manifestations on Six Elements by the Sonnabend Gallery in New York. As the gallery was well-known for its presentation of conceptual art, Palestine decided to create a record similar to an exhibition space with four walls to expose on, each wall corresponding to a side on a double LP record. "Two Perfect Fifths, A Major Third Apart, Reinforced Twice" (1973) is an electronic piece that deals with the search for the essence of timbre, sound color, through exploration of the inert chemical activity in the overtone series of tone fundamentals. In this genre of his work Palestine feels akin to a kind of sound alchemy -- blending elements over and over again through the years searching for the Golden Sound - the essence of the chord or harmonic structure itself. In "One + Two + Three Perfect Fifths, In The Rhythm 3 Against 2, for Piano" (1973) the elements introduced are now elaborated upon on the piano. The resonant Bosendorfer allows Palestine to create a more lively and complex variation of tones, intervals, overtones and rhythms. "One Fifth" evolves by reinforcing the fundamentals of a fifth with their higher octave. Each performance of this work is different as Palestine reinterprets these simple elements listening within them for variations of amplitude, mixture and inertia at the moment of the performance. "One + Two Fifths" deals with the way a rhythmic sonority sounds when the sustain pedal of the piano in not used, thus focusing on its rhythmic aspect. Gradually by adding the sustain pedal the external rhythmic pattern begins to internalize becoming an inert part of the whole timbral fabric -- a piece expressing the battle of rhythm versus timbre for dominance. In "One + Two + Three" a third fifth is added -- variations of melody and sonority reinforcements culminating in a rhythmic deceleration process ending the work. "Sliding Fifths for Piano" (1972) is an impressionistic version of the three fifths used in the entire work. The continuous liquid waterfall of pure romantic piano sound and color is an homage to Debussy, Ravel and Monet. "Three Perfect Fifths, A Major Second Apart, Reinforced Twice" (1973) is the continuation of wall one. A pure and sonorous phenomenon." - Alga Marghen.

"As one of the most influential figures of experimental music and performance Charlemagne Palestine has remained an enigma. Unlike his illustrious contemporaries Terry Riley, John Cale, Steve Reich and Phillip Glass little has been written on Palestine and his continuing influence. In his own right, he was and remains today a pivotal personality whose research in musical composition and performance has been characterized over the years by its incantatory repetitiveness, its flamboyance and its mysticism, but also by its violence. Born in Brooklyn in 1947 his first musical experiences were as a cantorial singer in the synagogues of New York. Through his contact with Tony Conrad Palestine was soon introduced to the thriving experimental art scene of the late 1960s. The circles around Andy Warhol and La Monte Young provided a crucial backdrop for Palestines work which increasingly extended beyond the scope of music. His groundbreaking appearances, which combined violent piano playing, performance, video and installation, were considered to be amongst the most radical musical experiences, leaving a lasting impression on followers such as Arto Lindsay, Glenn Branca, Sonic Youth, and the Sex Pistols as well as Tintin creator Herge. His musical oeuvre escapes any ready categorisation Brooklyn, is a synthesised drone mixed with field recordings of a festival. Palestines epic durations, microtonal trembles and dense overtones are reoccurring features in contemporary industrial and electronic music. Palestines unique style of singing, Indian singer Prandit Pran Nath Charleworld, were crucial influences on artists such as Mike Kelley and Paul McCarthy. Through recent collaborations with Barcelona based techno duo Pan Sonic and David Coulter (Kronos Quartet) Palestine remains a crucial contributor to todays experimental music scene.  A wonderful full colour book (size cm. 23,50x18,50), with flexicover, 192 pages including essays, scores, original photos of both performances and installation. The most complete documentation on Charlemagne Palestine art. The compact disc will feature the 60 minutes recordings of a lecture that Charlemagne Palestine gave on March 7th, 1975 at ArtNow Centre in Canada. After the performance of a strumming music concert, the author freely speaks about his music, the philosophy beyond his composition techniques and art involving the students in some kind of magic ritual. Starting as a question and answer conversation, the lecture develops into an intimate speech in which particularly private subjects are discussed. The lecture ends with a particularly touching suspended atmosphere showing how real communication in universities should be. The compact disc also includes a breathtaking multi-layer voice study of the early 1960s never published before on record, very similar in sound and structure to the electronic music studies just issued by Alga Marghen." - Alga Marghen.

Price: $26.00
"Alga Marghen proudly presents two sublime pieces by Eliane Radigue, Jouet Electronique (1967) for feedback on magnetic tape and Elemental I (1968) for feedback of natural sounds on magnetic tape. Both works, recorded at Pierre Henrys Studio Apsome in Paris, have not been published before. Between 1967 and 1968, Eliane Radigue was the assistant of Pierre Henry in his studio, mainly for the editing of LApocalypse de Jean. He also put her in charge of organizing his sound archive according to different criteria. It was endless work -- there were incredible sounds, a true sound library! Eliane Radigue really enjoyed doing this work, even if it took a long time. So, sometimes she decided to set the machines of the studio to do some little work on her own. Jouet Electronique and Elemental I were born this way as a kind of recreation during her time as a studio assistant. Working with feedback is something that Eliane Radigue learned through Pierre Henry. Do you remember Voyage? Theres that fluid part which is made of feedback constructed with a microphone. Everything had to be set at a precise distance from the loudspeakers because that is the specific problem with feedback -- you have to be at the right distance. Afterwards, these high tone recordings were slowed down in order to discover the deeper character of their color. This work with feedback was in the end quite limited and the composer preferred working with two reel tape machines to produce sounds. The first was set on the recording mode while the other was playing and it was the accidents happening in this phase that made the feedback richer. With some fine-tuning you could reach very beautiful results: low pulsations, very high-pitched sounds -- sometimes both at the same time -- or long sounds. All of these sounds could be slowed down or accelerated, which gave her a beautiful material to work with. With Jouet Electronique Eliane Radigue had a lot of fun, hence the title. As far as Elemental I is concerned, it was the first attempt at something which was very important to her based on the theme of the basic elements: water, fire, air and earth. Eliane had the chance to record in open air thanks to a small Stella Vox that Arman gave her in the beginning of the 1960s. At the time she was still living in Nice and every now and then she went for a walk to do some recordings of the sea, the wind, the rain, the fire -- Eliane Radigue continued this way to build her very minimal sound library, consisting of not more than ten reel tapes. This was the starting point and in 1968 she used these recordings for her work with two reel tape machines. First pressing limited to 300 copies, with a text by Emmanuel Holterbach and a photo portrait by Arman." -Alga Marghen.

"Raspberry Bulbs is the invention of visual artist and musician Marco del Rio, who, under the guise of He Who Crushes Teeth, co-founded Bone Awl -- one of the most distinguished black metal projects ever to come out of the U.S. Raspberry Bulbs debut album, Nature Tries Again, emerged in 2011. Hitherto a solo endeavor, RB expanded to a five-piece in the wake of Natures release, and sought to make a definitive break from black metals musical signifiers, if not its underlying themes of alienation and abjection -- a path of self-discovery that culminated in the bruised, dynamic visions of their sophomore LP, Deformed Worship (BLACKEST 018LP). Privacy arrives barely a year after its predecessor, but its a markedly more developed and far-reaching album. Songs of excoriating intensity once again form the basis of the work -- the no-frills 4-track recording capturing all the violence and nuance of del Rios vocals, of the dual guitar rapport, and the machine-gun rhythm section -- but this time theyre interspersed with eerie electronic miniatures, instrumental pieces that suggest unseen worlds, malign energies, forces beyond our comprehension and control. This aura of the uncanny is no accident. Though its practically impossible to describe Raspberry Bulbs music without mentioning punk or metal, the bands most important influences are literary: in particular Lovecraft, Machen, Chambers et al." - Blackest Ever Black.

"The name Mike Rep Hummel means many things to different people. Many equate Rep with 70s Proto-Punk, 80s D.I.Y. or a pioneering founder of 90s Lo-Fi (Rep prefers the term Mega-Fi himself). Along with his bands Mike Rep & The Quotas & the seminal (Ohio) True Believers, he was also a cohort in the 90s Columbus supergroup Ego Summit among a plethora of other Ohio band involvements. Also known for recording and/or mixing (Lovingly Fucking With) such bands of note as Guided By Voices, Times New Viking, Jim Shepard, The Gibson Brothers, Strapping Fields Hands, Mount Carmel and dozens of others, mostly in their formative garage/basement incarnations. I prefer deflowering to retooling. Both present worthwhile challenges but working with virgin talent wont get you an STD he once infamously said. Still others remember him for his groundbreaking Columbus Ohio homegrown label New Age Records (named before there was such a thing as New Age music) which evolved into the 80s/90s cassette pioneering signpost to new space Old Age/NO Age label through the 90s. And so the name Mike Rep Hummel has a polarizing effect on many who either admire or deride his body of work. Hummels new record Darby Creek Drifter is one that is sure to draw the line even deeper into the sand. Rep sez; As my pal Bob Pollard once quipped, this does not rock.

Title: 12 Stations/Tolv Stationer
Format: 7 CD BOX
Label: Ideologic Organ
Country: France
Price: $74.00
"In 2012 Ideologic Organ released the 2LP set 12 Stationer VI (SOMA 007LP) featuring the last part of a large scale work by the Hungarian-Swedish composer Ákos Rózmann. Here, in 2014 Ideologic Organ is immensely proud to present the complete version of Rózmann s epic masterpiece presented for the first time in its entirety as a deluxe 7CD set. Akos Rózmann (1939-2005) was born in Budapest where he studied organ and composition at the Liszt Academy. From 1971 to 1974 he studied composition at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm and from 1978 he was an organist at the catholic cathedral in Stockholm. Throughout his life, Rózmann dedicated himself to musique concrete, developing one of the largest and most rewarding bodies of work in this, the most alchemical of all musical genres. In the early 80s, Rozmann started to build a private electroacoustic studio which he installed in the basement of the Catholic Cathedral while continuing to work in tandem at the Elektronmusikstudion (EMS Sweden) where he produced his earlier masterpieces. With an unwavering commitment to the creation of music, Rózmann would often lock himself up in his windowless studio working into the night in order to achieve the results he desired. This combination of vision, passion and stubbornness resulted in one of the most singular catalogs within the field of musique concrète, commissioned by the Hungarian composer Miklos Maros, who requested a five-minute work for piano and voice. Rózmann accepted the offer with the intention of writing a tape piece made from recordings of Miklos wife, the soprano singer Ilona Maros and his own experiments with prepared piano. The elements recorded here became the source material for Twelve Stations, a work which flew far from the initial five-minute brief to land 20 years later as a spirit-stretching journey of more than 6 1/2 hours. The compositional process is unique in Rózmanns output due to the 18-year gap between the initial phase and completion of the final work. The first phase made between 1978-1980 consists of an exploration of traditional musique concrète techniques such as speeding up, slowing down, cutting and splicing tape. The last four stations made between 1998-2001 embrace digital technology where small sections of the original recordings from 1978 were fed through an effects processor and improvised on a sampler keyboard. Despite this gap and the different techniques deployed at each period of creation the monumental result sits as a complete and staggering whole. Within the set limitations of the source material Rózmanns skill unfolds in an uncanny ability to coax a vast world of flexible sound from the original piano and voice recordings. The result is a maelstrom of dynamic audio and one of the most daring, challenging and rewarding works of musique concrète from the 20th century. Rózmann was typically ambiguous about the meaning behind his work despite suggesting earlier that the first part of Twelve Stations was an interpretation of the Tibetan Wheel of Life. Twelve Stations is a unique masterpiece of 20th century musique concrète and presents itself as an intensely personal and bold realm of sound, an offering as such, a radical mass open to all." --Mark Harwood; Packaged in a hardcover slipcase with a pull ribbon, a 20-page booklet containing an extensive essay on the composition by the scholar Gergely Loch, photos from the process and of scores and the composer." - Ideologic Organ.

"On a cassette we have Schimpfluch Gruppe, a notorious group of various musicians, with a live recordings from April last year in Tokyo on one side, as recorded by Rudolf Eb.er (a core member!) and Dave Phillips and on the other side a split channel by them, with Phillips in the left channel and Eb.er in the right channel, recording things that were totally independent. It’s interesting to play this straight after the Alice Kemp release, as it shares the similar approach to working with acoustic sound - straight in your face, although especially in the live recording this seems to be not-so-loud. In the split channel piece there is a bit more noise but here too, I must say it’s not a lot. The action may seem obscure; you could hardly think what’s going on. A performance perhaps, but for all we know we have two persons playing sounds from a laptop, or burning bits of wood, strongly amplified. It has for me the same captivating feel to it, but a strong love for anything sound based is quite in place here. Also the music recorded separately works wonderfully well, and I never had the idea of listening to two different things, stuck together on one tape. This is noise, and this is noise that I like." - Frans de Waard, Vital Weekly.

Title: Gelb
Format: CD
Label: Bureau B
Country: Germany
Price: $19.00
"Conrad Schnitzlers yellow album (aka Gelb), originally released in 1981 on Edition Block. "The chronology of Schnitzlers solo releases in the 1970s -- and even more so in the 80s -- resembles a book with seven seals. Schnitzler regularly issued his music on analogue cassette or LP, often on his own as private releases, without any help from a label or professional distributor. The yellow album, for example, was issued on vinyl in 1981 by René Block in Berlin on his art gallery label (Edition Block). Schnitzler had previously released records on various other labels. The music on the yellow album had, in fact, already been on the market as The Black Cassette in 1974, although the production run was probably limited. The yellow album is subtitled 12 pieces from the year 1974, pointing to Schnitzlers novel approach. Whereas his prior works always lasted for the whole side of an LP or tape, the tracks here are shorter. Also new: Schnitzler goes beyond automatic sonic processes on a number of tracks, using his keyboards to integrate something approaching melodic improvisations played by hand into his musical cosmos. Schnitzlers otherwise crystalline, inorganic world of art is thus enriched by an almost human, organic element. An amiable breeze wafts through the music of the yellow album, thankfully miles away from the sentimental platitudes which run through off-the-shelf ambient music of the 1980s. The yellow album is not only amiable from start to finish, it also documents an important stage in Schnitzlers musical development. Belatedly released on LP (1981) and lacking in discographical detail, this aspect is easily overlooked. On careful listening, as Schnitzler connoisseurs will also realize instantly, this album reveals itself to be an important milestone, illuminating a clear path into the future. Schnitzler had begun to free himself from the constraints of orthodox conceptual art, advancing into the wide open spaces of uncharted musical territory." - Asmus Tietchens.

Title: Grün
Format: CD
Label: Bureau B
Country: Germany
Price: $19.00
"Conrad Schnitzlers green album (aka Grün), originally released in 1981 on Edition Block. "Schnitzlers tracks in the 1970s were lengthy and shared a musical pattern which varied only minimally. Hence the green album has just one track on each side and any changes in melodic structure are subtle in nature. Both pieces are very much typical of Schnitzler in style, but less so tonally. An analog rhythm machine ploughs almost brutally through the astoundingly delicate electronic veil of Der Riese und seine Frau (The Giant and His Wife), bearing little resemblance to Schnitzlers usual sequencer cascades. The second piece, created four years later, sounds completely different. Its title may be similarly poetic, but Bis die Blaue Blume blüht (Until the Blue Flower Blooms) transports the listener into another world altogether. A diminutive melody, consisting of just seven notes, becomes a kind of mantra, repeated with only the slightest variation until the end, as clusters of tiny sonic meteorites constantly swirl around, sparkling in all the colors of the spectrum. The composition is carried and held together by a permanent sequencer figure, brilliantly enhancing the catchy tune. Listening to the rhythmic-harmonic character and taking into account the year in which it was made (1980), it is fair to assume that this was recorded in Peter Baumanns Paragon Studio, like the Con album. The similarities are impossible to ignore. It is a well documented fact that Peter Baumann often allowed Schnitzler to work in his studio during this period. On the LP version, Bis die Blaue Blume blüht can be played at 33 or 45 rpm, revealing a wholly different piece of music at the chosen speed. Both speeds are available as two tracks on the CD version. For a composer to come up with something like this by design speaks of great artistry -- or perhaps of great fortuity. Presumably the former. Schnitzler most likely experimented to this end and set up the recording in the studio to allow for both playback options -- an unusual device for the early 1980s and further evidence of his capacity for transcending artistic borders. The borders between Schnitzlers creative periods are too nebulous to be sure that the green album represents the coda of his 70s music. Still, Schnitzlers musical essence of the decade is in evidence as aural concentrate on both pieces. Not, however, as a recapitulatory review, but as a foundation, fertile ground in which Schnitzlers art would thrive in the decades which followed." -Asmus Tietchens.

"This rare 45s was released in 1973 for the soundtrack of the film Scoop. It is composed of three instrumental tracks, "Scoop", "Spin" & "périf 73", a period of about 6 min per side. Influences are at Pink Floyd, Deep Purple (first time for the organ), without forgetting the psyche and Krautrock, "périf 73" being the best example. The song name is certainly linked to the opening of the Paris ring road opened in 1973. The film tells the story of a journalist (see the movie name) investigating a mad scientist who has found a way to read in the brain .... Over a period of about 50 minutes, it was projected only 2 times in a film club area called DIAF 16 Ranelagh and located in the 16th arrondissement of Paris. For music, the film was shown in a cellar of the Champ de Mars 15th where the band improvised front side image .... One may wonder to listen if the guitarist did not continue in music. No further information was sent to me by the films director, who does not remember at all playing on these securities and do not want to be associated with this project.

Title: Anoyo No Dekigoto
Format: LP
Label: Siwa
Country: USA
Price: $26.00
"Anoyo No Dekigoto is a duo performance unit, consisting of dance by Yoko Muronoi and music by Ikuro Takahashi. The project has existed for four or five years, but this is their first release with any substantial physical footprint on this corporeal plane. Takahashi has a lengthy history in the Japanese rock underground, dating back to his involvement with no-wavers Akebonoizu during the late seventies and early eighties. Since then he has been the drummer of choice for virtually everyone whos anyone on the scene. High Rise, Fushitsusha, Tamio Shiraishi, Kosokuya, ChŽ-SHIZU, Maher Shalal Hash Baz, and Nagisa Ni Te amongst others have all benefited from his propulsive, dynamic mastery of space. Solo, duo and more expansive projects under a variety of names including Aura Nihilitica, Lamones Young, and Of Dogstarman have revealed a hitherto unsuspected facility for environment-altering improvised drone and electronic drift. Muronoi too has a long CV of experimental dance work behind her, ranging from solo butoh pieces to multi-media collaborations with visual artists, filmmakers and musicians. The name Anoyo no dekigoto means something like Happenings in the Other World, an entirely appropriate moniker for the indeterminate, non-linear and metaphysical nature of the communication between Muronoi and Takahashi during their improvised performances. The music is not simply a background score for the dancers movements. Takahashi even shies away from the description of what they do as communication. Rather, he refers to a complex series of negotiations between dancer, musician, environment, and audience that serve to create a sense of enveloping, trembling communal space. On these recordings, Takahashi takes his interest in electronics to another level. On one track he deploys over thirty tiny oscillators to create a constantly moving, deeply immersive field of higher-function insect chatter. Even without Muronois wraith-like physical presence, the music on this album exerts an eerie and oblique dominance over any room in which it is played. It subtly modifies the listeners perception of time and space, leaving behind a tangible and mournful reminder of its presence, like the luminescent tracks of some passing phantom slowly decaying back into incorporeality." -Alan Cummings.

"Double LP of 60s punk, garage, moody sounds and proto-hard-rock of the highest order. Complete recordings (1966-1975) of this legendary band from Michigan, including their three killer 45s plus unreleased recordings and alternate takes. Includes master tape sound and an insert with photos and liner notes. Unrelated Segments created some of the most celebrated garage-punk anthems of all time. Tracks like "Cry, Cry, Cry" with its teenage-angst vocals and out of control fuzztone guitar break, "The Story of My Life" with that bizarre and ultra-punk bass line or the moody-punker "Its Gonna Rain" have been included on countless garage comps (Back from the Grave, Acid Dreams, Nuggets, etc.) and have been covered by numerous bands who worship them as 60s punk gods. Sadly, the band never got the chance to record a full album. After three outstanding 45s, they recorded a projected fourth single that never saw the light of day, just when the band had changed its name to U.S. and had started playing in a heavier vein, similar to early MC5. Soon after, the band split up and some of their members formed psych-rock band Lost Nation. On this collection, along with their official 45s and alternate takes/rehearsals, youll find the unreleased 45 from 1969 plus some demos recorded by an unnamed post-Unrelated Segments/Lost Nation band in 1972. An amazing find which shows the band playing pure Detroit high-energy hard rock." - Guerssen.

Title: 17 Diamond Studded Cadillacs
Format: LP
Label: Guerssen
Country: Spain
Price: $23.00
"Complete recordings (1969-1974) of legendary U.S. acid-punk band Unsettled Society, famous for appearing on the seminal psych compilation Endless Journey back in the 80s. But Unsettled Society have been a total mystery until now. The band came from the New York suburbs and were famous locally for their powerful stage shows, full of strobe and psychedelic flashing lights. In 1969 they released their first 45 for the Charm label: "17 Diamond Studded Cadillacs," which is pure acid-psych, lo-fi basement insanity. It was coupled with "Passion Seeds," a killer moody, atmospheric psych ballad. Between 1972 and 1974 they released two more 45s in a fantastic heavy psych vein, the last one recorded under the Thunder Head name. All of them are included here with sound taken from the original tapes. Includes a fold-out insert with lots of amazing unseen photos and detailed liner notes by Charm Records boss Pete Huntley.

Title: A Distant Invitation: Street & Ceremonial Recordings from Burma, Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand
Format: LP
Label: Sublime Frequencies
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"A hallucinogenic splatter-drift audio meltdown through the streets and back alleys of Southeast Asia recorded and assembled by Seattle-based multi-sword-wielding artist Jesse Paul Miller (Factums/Secret Records/Liver & Bacon/Big Tribal Balls). This limited edition LP includes street and folk music, situational ambience, radio excerpts, and psychedelic atmospheres from Burma, Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand. "We heard them from a distance, bells in the back alleys of Surakarta ... Then, one day, two weeks later, we walked around a corner and there they were, a troupe of roving gamelan musicians and a monkey with a mask ... If one wanders the streets of Southeast Asia, they will undoubtedly hear a variety of fascinating sounds; those created by street musicians, sellers in markets, horns from temples and mosques, woven with insect songs, birds, dogs, motorcycles. Intended to engage and entertain a host of spirits and gods, festivals and processions are frequent in certain regions. They can be extremely vibrant and overwhelmingly powerful energy situations. In rituals, the use of random multiple layers or instrumental vibrations can be intended to confuse or scare off bad spirits, and this can be very disorienting for the living listener also. Street musicians combine older instruments with electrical delivery systems in the form of genius portable battery-operated-waist-pack mini-horns connected to keyboards, karaoke machines, and folk instruments -- sometimes with effects. These musicians sit roadside; in some places they hop on buses between stops. In markets and along roadsides, sellers manipulate their voices to advertise using delay effects. Food cart proprietors use an incredible array of sonic methods to attract customers. They tap on objects, use steam whistles; sing like birds, use bits of Western jingles (and much more). Buddhist, Hindu, and Muslim broadcasts can be heard blasting through loudspeakers. With the addition of amplification, there is usually some form of distortion inherent to the speaker systems, often magically enhancing the voices, mixing in with the urban or rural soundtrack. The sonic tapestry of any space can reveal poetic insights. There is the perspective that all audio events in an environment, regardless of their form, can be heard musically. The vitality and depth of human expression, whether awe-inspiring or minute in all of its multitudinous manifestations, is for now, intact in Southeast Asia, and very much alive." --Jesse Paul Miller; This limited edition LP comes in a full-color tip-on jacket with a two-sided insert including photos by Linda Peschong & detailed liner notes and personal impressions by sound artist & compiler Jesse Paul Miller." - Sublime Frequencies.

Title: Map of the Interior
Format: Cass
Label: Vitrine
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"Vitrine is proud to announce its very first compilation as well as its final release of 2014. Map of the Interiors nine tracks present a love letter to the heyday of mail-art culture and a promise that such international friendship is still thriving across postal channels and on the internet. In his collection, After Lorca, American poet Jack Spicer resuscitates the Spanish writer Federico Garcia Lorca through a series of letters sent across the gulf of time and mortality. Map of the Interior attempts to bridge a spatial, rather than temporal divide, with nine tracks devoted to the marriage of tape and breath. Tape prolongs the life of the voice, extending it beyond the body into the greater polis. Hiss, flutter, yawn. Map of the Interior features contributions from a distinguished pedigree of international artists, including Matthew Philip Hopkins, Arv & Miljö, Sigtryggur Berg Sigmarsson Yeast Culture, and Spoils & Relics, as well as Vitrine house artists Good Area and No Intention. “Things do not connect. They correspond.” Limited to 250 copies." - Vitrine.

Title: Native North America (Vol. 1): Aboriginal Folk, Rock, and Country 1966-1985
Format: Double CD
Label: Light In The Attic
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"Largely unheard, criminally undocumented, but at their core, utterly revolutionary, the recordings of the diverse North American Aboriginal community will finally take their rightful place in our collective history in the form of Native North America (Vol. 1): Aboriginal Folk, Rock, and Country 1966-1985. An anthology of music that was once near-extinct and off-the-grid is now available for all to hear, in what is, without a doubt, Light In The Attics most ambitious and historically significant project in the labels 12-year journey. Native North America (Vol. 1) features music from the Indigenous peoples of Canada and the northern United States, recorded in the turbulent decades between 1966 to 1985. It represents the fusion of shifting global popular culture and a reawakening of Aboriginal spirituality and expression. The majority of this material has been widely unavailable for decades, hindered by lack of distribution or industry support and by limited mass media coverage, until now. Youll hear Arctic garage rock from the Nunavik region of northern Quebec, melancholy Yupik folk from Alaska, and hushed country blues from the Wagmatcook First Nation reserve in Nova Scotia. Youll hear echoes of Neil Young, Velvet Underground, Leonard Cohen, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Johnny Cash, and more among the songs, but injected with Native consciousness, storytelling, poetry, history, and ceremony. The stories behind the music presented onNative North America (Vol. 1) range from standard rock-and-roll dreams to transcendental epiphanies. They have been collected with love and respect by Vancouver-based record archaeologist and curator Kevin Sipreano Howes in a 15-year quest to unearth the history that falls between the notes of this unique music. Tirelessly, Howes scoured obscure, remote areas for the original vinyl recordings and the artists who made them, going so far as to send messages in Inuktitut over community radio airwaves in hopes that these lost cultural heroes would resurface. Considering the financially motivated destruction of our environment, the conservative political landscape, and corporate bottom-line dominance, its bittersweet to report that the revolutionary songs featured on Native North America hold as much meaning today as when they were originally recorded. 34 tracks newly re-mastered. Deluxe 2xCD set features a hard-cover 120 page book with comprehensive liner notes, artist interviews, unseen archival photos, and lyrics (with translations)." - Light In The Attic.

Title: The Travelling Archive - Folk Music from Bengal: Field Recordings from Bangladesh, India and the Bengali Diaspora
Format: LP
Label: Sublime Frequencies
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"The Travelling Archive is a journey through the folk music of Bengal. It is run by Calcutta-based Bengali singer, writer and researcher, Moushumi Bhowmik, and sound recordist and sound designer, Sukanta Majumdar. They have been making field recordings of songs and stories across Bangladesh and eastern India, even the Bengali diaspora in East London, since 2003; documenting and disseminating their research through archives, presentation-performances, art works, and their own independent record label and web site. Moushumi and Sukanta get out there, travel all over, become friends and live with the musicians, record them in their homes and villages, on their rivers, in their tea shops and work fields. Bengal, which includes Calcutta, India, Dhaka, Bangladesh, and more than 250 million people, is an amazingly diverse yet unique region, home to some of the largest cities in the world and plenty of uncategorizable and diverse folk music, including those wandering minstrels, the Bauls. The music and instrumentation presented on this LP features solo voice and chorus vocals, harmonium, dotara (four-string fretless lute), ektara (traditional one-string drone instrument), dugi (small kettle drum), bamboo flute, violin, and even an empty popcorn tub played like a drum. This is a diverse and magnificent sampling of what remains a massive archive of folk music from this region and Sublime Frequencies hopes to continue to release additional volumes in the future. Produced for Sublime Frequencies by Robert Millis, this limited edition LP comes in a tip-on heavy jacket with insert containing liner notes and photos." - Sublime Frequencies.
