Artist: AMANITA VULVA
Title: Dwellers of Kleine Eiland
Format: Cass
Label: Sloow Tapes
Country: Belgium
Price: $8.00
"Psychedelic improv band from Brussels featuring Bart Sloow, angoulème oridian, Bear Bones Lay Low, Weird Dust and Bonzai Tarzan. Free your fungi mind! Handmade covers, all different. Edition of 100 copies." - Sloow Tapes.
"improv band from Brussels featuring Bart Sloow, angouleme oridian, Bear Bones Lay Low, Weird Dust and Bonzai Tarzan. Free your fungi mind!" -- a suggestive play on amanita fulva which is a mushroom (in the section vaginatae no less) that is one of the few edibles in the amanita genus, but dont let that wiki regurgitation fool you, DWELLERS OF KLEINE EILAND is some seriously potent stuff, drawing deep from the wells of ASH RA TEMPEL and CAN, establishing an organic mystic psychedelic sound, smoked out as all get out and nurtured on the freeform freakouts of RED KRAYOLA, riding the same vibes as HERBCRAFT, MENDOCINO and VON HIMMEL, while the track "lepista nuda" hints at a soft spot for ALICE COLTRANEs JOURNEY IN SATCHIDANANDA (i mean, who doesnt have a soft spot for that one?), while the finale "free your fungi mind" channels the VELVETS "european son" - of course none of this comes as a surprise if youre familiar with, well SLOOW TAPES in general, but in particular band members BART SLOOW aka BART DE PAEPE and BEAR BONES LAY LOW by way of SYLVESTER ANFANG - all preconceptions are in play here on this supergroups debut (?) that exceeds all expectations from the moment i first laid eyes on the artwork til my tape deck clicked announcing the end of side 2 (Psi Lab)

Artist: ARITOMO
Title: La Flor De Mi Tupla
Format: LP
Label: Hakanairo
Country: Japan
Price: $26.00
"This is my 6th LP, but I wish this LP will be my 5th LP. I released my last LP in the beginning of 2011. Honestly, it was a failure. My 5th LP was not good music. Therefore I threw away all stock of my last LP soon. And I deleted it from my discography. If you bought it, Im sorry.
Anyway, I had to recover myself from the failure, for my solo works. But in the first half of 2011, the world has begun to be out of order. It is the phenomenon that I and some many people were cautious of. However, of course the tragedy affected my sensitivity. Even if I guessed it. And I have begun to make up my mind to have to make really splendid music. I was satisfied about music from the middle of 2011. I continued participating in recording of Mamitori Ulithi empress yonaguni sans 3rd LP. I remain the guitarist of the band more than ten years. The recording was a splendid experience. I learned many things there. About rhythm, chord, and anything important... The LP became one of best splendid music in the world. It is my pride. We released it in 2012. The experience had a big influence on my new LP, even if it do not resemble my music. Next, I released a VA LP by my label in 2013. The LP was titled "Esperanza de OTO". I planned the LP and collected songs of many artists. I was concerned with a great variety of music. It was the good experience. Mamitri Ulithi empress yonaguni sans 3rd LP and the VA LP were sold a lot in Japan and UK and USA. If you listened to each, I thank you.
It is important that oneself always change little by little, for artist. I learned it. And I made my music that do not resemble other music very much. Of course I continue coming under influence of much music, Pops, South American Rock and Folk, etc... yet.
However, my music is not those complete imitation, this time. Because the music does not resemble other music very much, some listeners may not understand its good point. However, my pride will not shake, this time. Because I made the album of my best masterpiece, I made handmade sleeves of my best masterpiece too. Please enjoy it too. P.S. I recorded the music by only analog machines like my other LPs. I dont use any digital machines and any compresser. So if you feel that the volume of the music is small, please raise the volume of the sound of your audio system." - Aritomo.

Artist: BASINSKI & RICHARD CHARTIER, WILLIAM
Title: Divertissment
Format: LP
Label: Important
Country: USA
Price: $24.00
"Divertissement is the third collaborative full-length from minimalist composer William Basinski and sound artist Richard Chartier. The duo utilizes electronics, piano, tape loops, and short-wave radio to evoke a dense atmosphere suggesting hundreds of years of history rising up from the depths of a reverberating cathedral. Subtle, buried, and intense murmurs of melody morph through this deeply consuming and slowly evolving composition in two parts. William Basinski is a classically trained musician and composer who employs obsolete technology and analog tape loops to create haunting, melancholy soundscapes that explore the temporal nature of life and resound with the reverberations of memory and the mystery of time. His epic four-disc masterwork The Disintegration Loops was chosen by Pitchfork Media as one of the top 50 albums of 2004; upon its reissue in 2012, Pitchfork awarded it a score of 10 and the title of best reissue of the year. Installations and films made in collaboration with artist and filmmaker James Elaine have been presented in festivals and museums internationally, and his concerts are presented to sold-out crowds around the world. Basinski was chosen by Antony Hegarty to create music for Robert Wilsons 2011 opera The Life and Death of Marina Abramovic. Maxim Mostons orchestral transcriptions of The Disintegration Loops have been performed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Queen Elizabeth Hall, and the Swiss festival La Bâtie. Richard Chartier (b. 1971), sound and installation artist, is considered one of the key figures in the current of reductionist electronic sound art that has been termed both "microsound" and neo-modernist. Chartiers minimalist digital work explores the interrelationships between the spatial nature of sound, silence, focus, perception, and the act of listening itself. Chartiers work has been presented internationally, including at the 2002 Whitney Biennial, and he has performed his work live across Europe, Japan, Australia, and North America at digital art and electronic music festivals and exhibits. In 2000 he formed the record label LINE and has since curated its continuing documentation of compositional and installation work by international sound artists and composers exploring the aesthetics of contemporary and digital minimalism. In 2010, Chartier was awarded a Smithsonian Institution Artist Research Fellowship to explore the National Museum of American Historys collection of 19th-century acoustic apparatus for scientific demonstration." - Important.

Artist: CORNER, PHILIP
Title: Through Two More-Than-Mysterious Barricades (Improvizations After François Couperin)
Format: LP
Label: Roaratorio
Country: USA
Price: $24.00
"Les Barricades Mistérieuses, the harpsichord gem by French Baroque composer François Couperin, has been a long-running source of exploration for Fluxus musician Philip Corner, who for years has used it as a jumping-off point for piano improvisations. Through Two More-Than-Mysterious Barricades comprises two very different takes on the same piece. The first dates from 1992, in collaboration with dancer Paulette Sears (who provides the singings and screamings of the albums subtitle); it moves from a frenzy of abstraction to a more meditative take on Couperins composition, with diversions and tributaries along the way. The second, from 2004, is a rougher beast: recorded with wildly over-saturated levels, the tape machine itself becomes a participant in the performance, with its heavy distortion bringing out storm-clouds of overtones from Corners piano. Through Two More-Than-Mysterious Barricades is released in an edition of 318 copies, with Corners calligraphy silkscreened on Kozo rice paper and mounted onto the jacket. Download coupon included." - Roaratorio.

Format: Triple LP Box Set
Label: Metaphon
Country: Belgium
Price: $65.00
Edition of 300. Comes in a hardboard linen box with 22-page booklet and large poster with score. “Joris de Laet (Belgium, 1947) is a fully autodidact composer of electroacoustic music. Between 1972 and 1975 he worked at the IPEM along with Lucien Goethals and Karel Goeyvaerts and in 1973 he founded the SEM (Studio for Experimental Music) where he organised plenty of group sessions, live performances, lectures,... De Laets work is adventurous, complex and difficult to classify, due to many interesting contrasts in his style and approach - academic vs intuitive, modern composition vs free improvisation, acoustic vs electronic, sound vs noise,...



This selection of his early recordings (1972-1979) represents an overview of his intriguingly radical and highly personal work which includes solo tape experiments, live electronics with Karel Goeyvaerts and group performances with experimental instrumentalists from the SEM ensemble : Pieter Kuyl (chapmanstick), Leo Verheyen (trombone), Paul Adriaenssens (flute and amplified objects), Maurice Verstuyft (flute).

Artist: ESPLENDOR GEOMETRICO + HIJOKAIDAN
Title: E.G. Kaidan
Format: LP
Label: Geometrik
Country: Spain
Price: $20.00
"Awesome collaborative recording by Spanish industrial music pioneers Esplendor Geométrico and legendary Japanese noise kings Hijokaidan. Esplendor Geométrico: Arturo Lanz, Saverio Evangelista; Hijokaidan: Jojo Hiroshige, Junko, T. Mikawa. Released by Geometrik (Madrid), Suezan Studio (Tokyo), and Alchemy Records (Osaka). "In November 2013, E.G. made their fourth trip to Japan. After the first two shows in Tokyo, the day for the E.G.Kaidan came. I confess: I was nervous because E.G. had almost never played with other bands on stage. However, my concern was entirely blown away as they kick-started the show. Overlapping with the material chosen from E.G.s new album, Ultraphoon (GR 2130CD/LP, 2013), Jojo Hiroshiges guitar sound and the harsh noise generated by Mikawa combined with Junkos eccentric voice, mingled together into an unprecedented mass of sound, and hit us. The two ensembles, through a brief initial phase as if they were feeling their ways toward each other, fused their sounds together and assaulted the audience with overpowering force. The vocal interchange between Arturo Lanz and Junko, getting the audience involved, drove the whole house into frenzy. The show ended in triumph... the air filled with a mixture of excitement and stunned euphoria" --Kaoru Koyanagi (Suezan Studio). Recorded in high quality at SuperDeluxe, Tokyo, November 2013. Limited numbered edition of 500." - Geometrik.

Artist: EXTNDDNTWRK
Title: Untld
Format: 10"
Label: Fourth Dimension
Country: UK
Price: $19.00
“Limited edition 10" featuring two sides of mixed cuts by Andrew Fearn of Sleaford Mods. Sways between buoyant yet grizzled electronica, nightmarish hue, post-dancefloor meltdown, acidic squelch, malfunctioning space probes, and snatches from the ether. If SM can often be described as confrontational, then the music of Extnddntwrk may well be there to help flesh out the hallucinations induced by the sucker-punches. Musically owing, however, more to his own work in Infant and an entire background in homespun electronic works,Untld comes from the same place as SM yet is coupled to something altogether more personal, driven by bittersweet experience.” - Fourth Dimension.

Harutakas first solo release from 2005. "Mochizuki Harutaka is a Tokyo-based "next-wave" multi-instrumentalist who combines blasted vocals with solo saxophone, bells, guitar and piano. His haunted vocal style is pitched somewhere between Jandek, Keiji Haino and a death-decadent torch singer, while his saxophone improvisations orbit the same lonely satellites as solo thinkers like Masayoshi Urabe, Arthur Doyle, Anthony Braxton and Kaoru Abe. Nerve-flaying blues from a player who has been there and back." -Le Weekend Festival.

Artist: HEINZ HOPF
Title: Ids Inte
Format: Cass
Label: Vitrine
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"Incendiary confusion amidst pointless data. A dumb nothing of electronics and vital intoxication. “I dont care.” Vitrine kicks off its summer batch of releases with the latest cassette from Swedens Heinz Hopf. Dan Johansson and Matthias Andersson have been steadily contributing invaluable work to the experimental community, both local and international, throughout the 2000s, either via projects such as Johanssons Sewer Election, Anderssons Arv & Miljö, or the latters Release the Bats and IDDB record labels. For the past five years, Johansson and Andersson have been collectively delivering the next best thing to a bag full of Elkbrews and some MSNP tapes. Theres constant movement which never leads to progress as dense sound drops out to half-seconds of silence, following which the listener returns to another spot on the map, as if such a relocation mattered. High-yield noise without some vague pretense towards darkness or taboo. Limit points without the notion of a dotted line. It would be apt to call this a manifestation of pure, libidinal energy, if it wasnt all so gloriously drunk and retarded. Sound for sounds sake. Pleasure for no sake at all. Vitrine is nothing but proud to release thirty minutes of Gothenburgs finest. Limited to 100 copies. " - Virtine.

Artist: IPEM
Title: Institute for Psychoacoustic and Electronic Music: 50 Years of Electronic and Electroacoustic Music at the Ghent University
Format: Double CD/Book
Label: Metaphon
Country: Belgium
Price: $38.00
Edition of 700, with 88 page booklet. “From the huge archive of IPEM recordings a selection was made featuring works by Lucien Goethals, Didier Gazelle, Louis De Meester, David Van de Woestijne, Stefan Beyst, Helmut Lachenmann, Boudewijn Buckinx, Karel Goeyvaerts, Emmanuel Van Weerst, Peter Beyls, Raoul De Smet, Frank Nuyts, Ricardo Mandolini, Peter Schuback, Stephen Montague and Yves Knockaert. All tracks were recorded at the IPEM studio and mastered from the original tapes. Most tracks are previously unreleased.
The absolute freedom of thought, together with the availability of new technology for sound recording, sound manipulation and sound distribution formed a fertile soil for the production of electroacoustic music at the IPEM in Ghent. The music is radical in many ways, both in terms of composition and in the use of sounds and their combinations. The music ignores traditional structures and emerging phenomena such as tonality and meter and replaces them with other structural principles based on sound transformations and gestures.” - Metaphon.

Artist: LLOYD PACK, THE
Title: A Tribute
Format: LP
Label: Amish
Country: USA
Price: $21.00
"The Lloyd Pack is a project band of transplanted Englishman Dan Melchior. The Lloyd Pack A Tribute (AMI047) initially emerged from a conversation Melchior had with Graham Lambkin (Shadow Ring, Kye Records) about the prospect of doing a Faux African record. For two British-expats living in the U.S. in the twenty-first century, this LP offers a peculiarly whimsical variation on the Faux African, infusing lo-fi tribal rhythms with post-punk dance in the spirit of early Adam Ant, Fun Boy Three and the Fall. If one were to imagine adding Ivor Cutler to this British-mix, it might approach what Melchior delivers on this LP. And for the record, Cutler is a Scot. Lambkin offered some vocal components, alongside a large cast (including the late Letha Rodman-Melchior, Angela Sawyer aka Preggy Peggy, Gnarlos, Nick Hennies, Le Ann Baca Bartlett, and Johnny Brewton), all of whom chimed in on the recording process. Dan Melchior has put out dozens of records in the last decade under multiple guises including the Broke Review, Dan Melchior und Das Menace, under his own name and in collaboration with artists as diverse Billy Childish, Holly Golightly, Russell Walker, The Spits etc., and has emerged as one of the most unique voices in American outsider rock and experimental music." - Amish.

Artist: LUXURY APARTMENTS
Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Dead-Cert
Country: UK
Price: $23.00
"Germany-born and Derbyshire-raised musician, painter, and mathematician David Tyack began working under his Luxury Apartments moniker in the summer of 2002, exploring potential film and animation synchronization with nods to his growing penchants for neoclassical, free jazz, and minimal music. He had recently finished a self-penned conceptual LP with original Can vocalist Malcolm Mooney, and been writing and recording for then-yet-to-be-mixed LPs by Jane Weavers Misty Dixon and his own band D.O.T.; his Luxury Apartments work, a series of experimental recordings made at his compact home studio on Clyde Road in Didsbury, Manchester, counterbalanced his ambitions to record a fully-realized singer-songwriter album. Completed just months before Tyacks untimely accidental death on the island of Corsica, Luxury Apartments reveals him at his uninhibited best, displaying some of his most adventurous, dedicated, and unapologetic solo excursions into sound-design, improvised composition, and electroacoustic territories -- the result is a unique blend of dark ambient, mechanical folk, PINA stylings, and coldwave DIY rhythms. Drawing comparisons to the varied works of Sorgini, Eno, Liska, Stabat Stable, Martin Zero, Luc Mariani, Walter Branchi, and the lost electronic work of Don Cherry, these previously unheard tapes are presented here in unedited form, compiled exactly how Tyack intended the record to be pressed should any independent record label have the foresight to take the plunge into his creative pool. Released with blessing and encouragement from the Tyack family, this is the first unreleased music to come from Tyacks extensive archive, which was shared with close friends and creative collaborators regularly during his creative years in Manchester between 1997 and 2002. Artwork and liner notes by Andy Votel. Limited edition of 500 copies." - Dead-Cert.

Artist: MARS
Title: Mars Archives Volume One: China to Mars
Format: LP
Label: Feeding Tube
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Following the success of the two live LPs bookending Marss trajectory through the skies of NYC, Mark Cunningham was convinced to return to his legendary box of cassettes. Even he was surprised to discover the bands earliest shows (done under the name China) were there, amidst a tumble of other tapes. Thus, the idea was born for a trilogy of LPs tracing Marss development from their first audition gig at CBGB through the shows following their 1980 Lust/Unlust EP. China to Mars is the first volume, and really displays for the first time how much the bands earliest music was a mutated variation on some of NYCs extant juggernauts, in particular Television and the Patti Smith Group. While their sound was clearly their own, the textures and techniques theyre using to achieve them are far less alien than theyd become. Side one was recorded at Chinas audition night at CBGB in Feb. 77, and their follow-up show in June. Its amazing how good it sounds. And the songs are almost all unheard (apart from Cry, which appeared on the 2012 Anòmia tape box). Even "3E" is nearly unrecognizable from its released version recorded the following year. The second side is from Sept. 77, once they had started calling themselves Mars. The shuddering blocks of sound for which they are known are beginning to coalesce, and Sumners dark vocals are pushed to the fore. The music is stunning. You can hear the band on the very cusp of transforming itself into the group that recorded those incredible early sides. Wow, cant wait for the next two volumes" - Byron Coley, 2015. Edition of 800.

Artist: MCCANN, SEAN
Title: A Castle Popping/Tub of Green Ink
Format: LP+CDR
Label: Recital
Country: USA
Price: $28.00
A collection of recordings from 2013 & 2014. This is the first solo release by Sean since Music for Private Ensemble. A display of six recent pieces, not to be taken as a formal ‘album, but whatever floats your boat!
The first side holds abstract vocal-based work. Recorded in hotel rooms during business trips in Las Vegas and Spain, and later manipulated on a broken reel to reel machine. The second side is serene; featuring a recording of McCanns first formal composition for quartet, Victorian Wind, performed by the Thin Edge New Music Collective. The LP concludes with two works for piano, recorded and edited at home in Pasadena, CA.
Edition of 150 hand-numbered LPs. Supplemental full-length CDr "Tub of Deep Green Ink”" - Recital.

Artist: PSYCHICK WARRIORS OV GAIA
Title: 1989
Format: LP
Label: Sacred Summits
Country: UK
Price: $29.00
"Still charged, the deep tribal trance of Reinier Brekelmans, Reinoud van den Broek and Robbert Heijnen. A Double Dutch mixture of Industrial and Detroit techno, lacing Acid House with some of the liveliest oppositional ideas of the time, about art, nature and politics. From the same neck of the enchanted forest as Psychic TV and Coil... but this album is kicking dance music. Originally released on cassette in 1989. Reissued in silk-screened sleeves, with notes by Reinoud. Great, bracing stuff. We are very interested in the methods of "those primitive peoples" who used dance throughout the ages, as a celebration of life or a way to communicate with spirits. To be spiritual is a strange word now but you can break the structures of conditioning with that physical experience. Thats the side were interested in." - Sacred Summits.

Title: Old Times & End Times
Format: Cass
Label: Sloow Tapes
Country: Belgium
Price: $8.00
"Psych folk drone music by David Colohan lost in the mists of time. Featuring Alison O’Donnell of Mellow Candle fame. 80 copies." - Sloow Tapes.
" -- on the face of it, OLD TIMES & END TIMES is hardly anything like the RAISING HOLY SPARKS works im familiar with, which admittedly is far fewer than i should be, my primary point of reference is FOUR SACRED MOUNTAINS which flew under my radar in 2013 via AWKWARD FORMATS as a double cassette box set, which i loosely described to a friend as "kinda like if NATURAL SNOW BUILDINGS ate STARS OF THE LID and belched this out" - meanwhile OT&ET washes up on the shore of otherworldly folk where trails blazed by folks like BEN CHASNY and PHIL ELVERUM are now found abandoned and overgrown, so it forges its own way through the wilderness with some shimmering psychedelic drone that fortuitously washed up alongside, and some male/female vocals that at times recall BIG BLOOD - its not what i expected, but fantastic nonetheless (Psi Lab)

A major work in Rantas oeuvre (his first solo release in almost 25 years), highly personal and spiritual.” - Metaphon.


Artist: ROEDELIUS & MURAGLIA
Title: Ubi Bene
Format: Double LP
Label: Passus
Country: Germany
Price: $28.00
"To anybody with the slightest interest in electronic music and krautrock Hans-Joachim Roedelius needs no introduction. As founding member of Kluster (with Conrad Schnitzler and Dieter Moebius; continued as Cluster after Schnitzlers departure) and Harmonia (with Moebius and Michael Rother), he is one of the most highly-regarded pioneers and key figures in both genres. Roedelius remains very productive as of 2015, now in his 80s, and not only performs regularly but also continues to release an impressive amount of work. Ubi Bene sees him join forces with Leon Muraglia, electronic artist and guitar player of a younger generation, who, in addition to his solo recordings, also works as DJ and studio musician. The albums 12 tracks add up to an elegant musical trip that meanders between moody, ambient piano work; experimental passages; and contemporary electronica -- a fascinating chapter in Roedeliuss impressive oeuvre. 180-gram double LP in gatefold sleeve with download code. Edition of 750." - Passus.

Artist: SHIT AND SHINE
Title: Everybodys a Fuckin Expert
Format: Double LP
Label: Editions Mego
Country: Austria
Price: $31.00
"The ascent of Shit and Shine is one of the great audio headfucks in memory, from its genesis out of the South London noise rock revivalist scene to a zone where rabbit-costumed maniacs bled a unique form of multi-drum and electronic hysteria to its incarnation of destroyed lysergic dance music. Shit and Shine is the epitome of second-guess-subversion. With a foot in every pie, it continues on a fantastic, twisted path. Everybodys a Fuckin Expert lays forth another slab of inverted tranquility in which general disruption is kept in check by the subversive charm unique to the outfit. Gunfire rhythms lay waste to androgynous sonics on "Ass"; deep sea disorientation allows pools of plasticine audio to rise on "Rastplatz"; "Picnic Table" rinses electro out of thick, gelatinous cybernetics. Everybodys a Fuckin Expert takes a smorgasbord of sounds and styles and contorts them into a bright hope in twisted theater, disorientating dance, and hefty hedonism. Both the faint- and strong-hearted allowed permanent entry to this club." - Editions Mego.

Artist: SUN FOOT
Title: Round Dice Fried Combo
Format: LP
Label: Mississippi
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Contemporary art rock band. A strange mix of minimalism, catchy pop music and damage. Sun Foot are a true underground band worthy of recognition. The drums suggest a drone and simplicity somewhere between Bo Diddley and Tibetan music. The angular guitar and bass are somehow easy to listen to and... dare I say... fun. This LP is a distillation of Sun Foots song catalog -- a greatest hits of sorts and nice introduction to their progressive world. Recorded and produced by none other than Joe Goldring (of The Enablers and producer of many San Francisco bands) at Coast Studios. Album cover designed with heavy art contribution by David King, designer of the iconic CRASS symbol. Ron Burns (formally of Smog, Hot Spit Dancers), Chris Johanson (visual artist, formerly of San Franciscos Deep Throats) and Brian Mumford (Dragging an Ox through Water, Jackie-O Motherfucker) make up Sun Foot. Co release with Awsome Vistas." - Mississippi.

Title: Berlin Atonal Vol. 3
Format: LP
Label: Berlin Atonal
Country: Germany
Price: $43.00
"Edition of 500 copies, featuring tracks from Cabaret Voltaire, Miles Whittaker, Fis, and Abdulla Rashim. The Berlin Atonal festival picks up on a tradition begun in 1984 with the publication of two volumes of live recordings from the 1983 edition of the festival. Those records bore witness to the most inventive, adventurous sounds of the festival, and therefore of their time, containing live bits from Psychic TV, La Loora and ZEV. Berlin Atonal Vol. 3 carries this custom three decades forward with selections from four of the standout performances of Berlin Atonal 2014. Of course, Cabaret Voltaires lauded and historic first show in over 20 years is featured, with Richard H. Kirks no-nostalgia and machinery-driven set firmly putting the Cabaret Voltaire project in a future-facing direction. Miles Whittakers surprising and muscular live performance also contributes a cut, as does festival favorite Fis, with his characteristically lumpy, textural soundscapes. Finally, two selections from Abdulla Rashims memorable session gesture toward a possible future for synthesized music. Housed in a gatefold sleeve." - Berlin Atonal.

Title: Cold Waves of Color
Format: CD
Label: Color Tapes
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
With two bonus tracks not included on the LP version. "Collection of rare UK cold wave tracks taken from Color Tapes label cassettes released in micro editions between 1981-1985. Color Tapes was the brainchild of future Sun Dial leader Gary Ramon: "Living in East London, it was a very grey and bleak time. Huge imposing tower blocks, gasworks and concrete just about everywhere. You couldnt walk through some areas without the risk of being shot at by an air rifle, or worse. Luckily, salvation was in the music. The musical landscape was changing. I saw a very early gig by an unknown all-synth band called Depeche Mode at a dingy pub under a flyover called The Bridge House in Canning Town, London. Following this I saw Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five and started buying records by the likes of Afrika Bambaataa. At the other end of the musical spectrum, we were picking up records by Stockhausen, John Cage, Pierre Henry and Moondog, and combing junk shops for anything else that looked interesting!" The UK cassette scene and DIY ethos were thriving. Color Tapes was born. Home multi-track recorders were luxury items. They had to make do with sound on sound recorders, bouncing between reel-to-reel and cassette machines if they wanted stereo. What youre about to hear for the first time since those days is a snapshot of Color Tapes: released material and other unissued tracks too. This compilation is the first of a series of Color Tapes/Lion Productions releases of material from the Color Tapes archives.” - Color Tapes.

Title: Doppeldoppelgänger
Format: Double LP
Label: Shelter Press
Country: France
Price: $31.00
"Doppeldoppelgänger, a compilation of tracks by poets and sound artists selected by David le Simple and Vincent Romagny, was created on the occasion of the three-exhibition Doppelgänger cycle at the Centre Européen dActions Artistiques Contemporaines, Strasbourg, France, curated by Romagny. The double LP is a purely subjective compilation of sound works by artists (Félicia Atkinson, bruant&spangaro), sound from films by artists (David Lamelas), sound poetry and performances (John Giorno, Karl Holmqvist, Lisa Holzer & David Jourdan), works by cult composers (Benjamin Britten, Jean-François Pauvros, Gérard Pesson, Jean-Claude Vannier), legendary groups (Deux Filles), unclassifiables (Potima Zen Neumann, Joiejoiejoie), and specially-recorded reprises, including Aidons Antoine mixing Karl Holmqvist, Melissa Saint-Pierre reprising Colin McPhee, Anne Steffens and Don Niño performing Kurt Weill, and David le Simple mixing "Minh singt seine Sehnsucht." The album reflects the same concern that drove the exhibitions of the Doppelgänger cycle -- avoidance of thematic and formal constraints in pursuance of shifts in the concept of the "double" -- plus a grounding in literary texts, which are represented by quotations to be found on the sleeve. Gérard Pesson transcribes Brahmss Fourth Ballade from memory years after hearing the work (Nebenstück, 1998); Robert Rauschenberg reads, along with other artist friends of John Giorno, from the latters Pornographic Poem (Raspberry/Pornographic Poem LP, The Intravenus Mind, 1967). 160-gram LP in gatefold sleeve with artwork by Karl Holmqvist and David Jourdan. Edition of 500." - Sacred Summits.

Title: Esperzana de OTO 2
Format: LP
Label: Hakanairo
Country: Japan
Price: $22.00
"I released my best masterpiece LP "La Flor De MI Tulpa" in 2014. Because it was extremely splendid music, I wanted to pile up many other experience before beginning my music of the next. Experience that is interesting for new idea is necessary. I just enjoyed live performance of splendid rock band "Aka" frequently, at that time. Because I wanted to listen to music of Aka by vinyl, I started the plan of Espernaza De OTO Vol.2 immediately. And I have begun to look for artists who offer splendid music.
"Midorita Rokunotake" is a great SSW in Fukuoka-ken Japan. He has very beautiful voice. And Tadasuke Iwanaga (The leader of mamitori Ulithi empress yonaguni san) plays drums and other instruments in Midoritas song.
Bicho Pablo is a genius Chilean SSW. He recorded many albums so far. However, he is still not well known because he doesnt release physical release so far. We can listen to his song on turntable by this LP! Rin Eric is a great SSW in California. Because he likes my LP "La Flor De Mi Tulpa" very much, we did collaboration this time. I attached some instruments and backing vocal to his song.
Kenji Kariu is the leader of the progressive jazz rock band "OWKMJ". He recorded his solo song. It is a nice pop song. "Aka" is a great rock band in Nagoya city Japan. They do the performance that is very pure, and is beautiful.
"Mamitori Ulithi empress yonaguni san" is the band who included me. All members except me are geniuses. They released their 3rd LP that is a best masterpiece LP of the world, in 2012. And Bruit Direct Disques released their live LP recently because their 3rd LP is really great. Their unreleased song is included in this V.A LP.
"Bon Voyage" is a mystery artist. I recorded his beautiful acoustic guitar by my reel to reel tape deck.
"Munca" is a great Bolivian musician. He has nice senses of melody and arrangement. He recorded new song for this V.A LP. "Aritomo" is me. I recorded 2 songs for this LP.
This LP has hand-made sleeve and 5 info sheets that are about each artist. If you get any nice sense when you listen to this LP, I am glad." - Aritomo

Artist: WEAVER, JANE
Title: Neotantrik Globes (Suzanne Ciani, Andy Votel, Sean Canty)
Format: LP
Label: No Label
Country: UK
Price: $21.00
"This recording of Jane Weaver re-scored by Neotantrik (Suzanne Ciani, Andy Votel, and Sean Canty) has been described by Andy Votel as the "incidental music" counterpart to the conceptual soundtrack of The Silver Globe (EGGS 019CD, EGGS 019LTD-CD, 2014). Invoking and refracting Weavers hugely acclaimed The Silver Globe in one engrossing session recorded in Bergen, Norway, as part of an installation at the end of 2014, Neotantrik Globes contains Weavers original material dissected, atomized, and diffused into a side of mercurial, open-ended electronics and mechanical process. Weavers sylvan melodies, harmonies, and vibes are scrambled, extruded, and smeared so that one hears their morphing aspects in a swirling lightshow strafing from windswept ambience thru nebulous synth-space, garroting string-tension, and siren-like drone-pop to a screw-twisting denouement. The album is also notable for Cianis use of some specially commissioned Buchla modules -- some of the first pieces produced by Don Buchla in years -- plus a Nagoya Harp played through a fuzz pedal and dulcimer fed through a space-echo. Its totally absorbing and is perhaps one of thee strongest recordings from the trios one-of-a-kind setup, given an added dimension by Weavers hugely evocative voice. Single-sided LP. Artwork by Andy Votel. Edition of 500." - No Label.

Artist: YOUNG, LA MONTE & MARIAN ZAZEELA
Title: The Black Record
Format: LP
Label: Oddullabaloo
Country: Europe
Price: $35.00
“Marian Zazeela (*1940) and La Monte Young (*1935) are an artist couple from the United States who live and work together since 1962 and have ever since taken part in a multitude of projects too numerous to mention. It is far more than music both create as their repertoire also features installation art and paintings. But since our main focus is the music, we concentrate on their just reissued album named “The Black Record” from 1969 with two lengthy minimal drones that create the ultimate mind expanding atmosphere by hypnotizing the listener and putting him into a state of physical and spiritual trance afterwards. We hear several layers of voices on a deep dark drone as the first track and I could imagine that this drone is in fact the echo of Mrs. Zazeelas chanting voice but it might also be a harmonium or an organ. It sounds too natural and warm for a synthesizer. Whatever it is, it works as a solid base for the wordless chants of both artists. This piece is in fact a selection from a much longer soundscape recorded in an art gallery in Munich in 1969. The minimalistic structure and meandering voice melodies generate a hypnotic and utterly spiritual atmosphere just as if you would witness an Indian meditation ritual. Turn the vinyl around and you will be swallowed by a black hole of sounds. This piece has been recorded in 1968 in the home studio of Young and Zazeela and it predates the cosmic music and proto industrial sounds of early TANGERINE DREAM or CLUSTER by a few years. This album is certainly made for a small audience of people who can put themselves in a state where leaving the body for a spiritual journey is only the next step. Both pieces are far from regular popular music but that makes them even more captivating and intriguing. A challenge for each listener in case hes not used to TANGERINE DREAMs “Zeit” album yet. Who dares to join us on this strange trip?” - Oddullabaloo.
