Artist: C & B, THE
Title: 1991 Pre-Shadow Ring Recordings
Format: 7"
Label: Siltbreeze
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"The C&B is short for Cat & Bells Club, a brief precursor that would soon be transformed into the estimable poetics of The Shadow Ring. Studious fans of the bands releases may recognize this name from the whimsical word search found on the back cover of their 1995 7, Some Of Us. Ah, finally; mystery solved & now all the ducks are on the pond. While early Shadow Ring managed to fuse equal parts Tyrannosaurus Rex mystical recitations w/Throbbing Gristle aural idolatry, The C&B seem divinely born out of the sputtering taps of brown ale that flowed freely down the gullets of various 1st generation DIY shufflers, most notably, 49 Americans or Door And The Window. And while this is just dumb luck, theres no denying a genus, unintentional as it may be. The templates for the ruminative, droll & original wordsmithing not to mention the threadbare musical accompaniment that would soon become the hallmark for The Shadow Ring sound are now available for the 1st time ever in a 300 press 7", 4 track ep. Original artwork by founding member, Graham Lambkin." - Siltbreeze.

Title: Last Trip at Lake Pepin
Format: LP
Label: Swordfish
Country: UK
Price: $29.00
Ltd. Edition 180g vinyl LP. Newly discovered recording, never previously available. "In January 1971 legendary Minneapolis psychedelic band the C A Quintet, creators of one of the most sought-after and celebrated underground albums of the 60s, Trip Thru Hell, decided to call it a day and play one final swan-song at Lake Pepin High School. Three tracks from this gig were hastily issued by the band in the early 80s in response to a bootleg of the Trip Thru Hell LP that had then recently surfaced. Whilst many thought then that this was the last that would ever be heard of the band again, earlier this year two surprising events happened - 1, the original master-tape of the gig was discovered. 2, it was found to contain material far stronger than that on the old live album and also to include previously unheard original material. The band perform storming versions of 60s classics like Born To Be Wild and Badge alongside originals 4am In New York City and the closing number China Clipper - the final song ever performed by the C A Quintet. This will be a limited edition one-off custom pressing featuring new liner notes specially written for this edition by band founder and leader Ken Erwin who also supervised the remastering of these recordings." - Swordfish.

Title: Clinik Organik Musak Anatomik
Format: CD
Label: Desire
Country: France
Price: $16.00
"Originally released in 1979, the mythic synth-punk lost classic C.O.M.A. album is available on CD for the first time, ever, including four unreleased tracks. Before becoming a French pop star with Charles De Goal, Patrick Blain was part of C.O.M.A., a synth-punk band that recorded only one album, chock full of ideas, which then dismantled shortly after. Originally released on Flamingo in 1979, Clinik Organik Musak Anatomik is now a much sought-after collectors item. Some will find similarities with Metal Urbain in their sound, especially on tracks like "Assaut," but C.O.M.A. is certainly weirder and mixes clangy punk guitar, proto-industrial synth, harmonica, and slapdash electronic drums. Each song is its own experiment. Inspired by bands like Devo, Wire, XTC, Kraftwerk, The Residents, and Magazine, C.O.M.A. were the screamers on the French side of the Atlantic Ocean. Housed in a digisleeve CD with an 8-page fold-out poster booklet with lyrics." - Desire.

"“The guy always hobbled around Girard Ave. with a hoodie half pulled on over a wifebeater. His family lived down the street from us. We would sometimes give him cheap bodega food on paper plates - they didnt allow him inside the shop because he was too fucked up.” Vitrine is proud to announce the first solo release from tape-noise stalwart Samantha Flowers. Inane conversation segues from isolate flutter to stoop obsolescence, all swaddled in a bored headache of masked vocals and malfunction. Signal interference bleeds into positional confusion and numbskull amp burble, while still retaining an adroit sense of humor. Over the past few years, Flowers has racked up an impressive resume during residencies in Philadelphia and Detroit, with turns in various projects, including out-of-bounds rhythm box unit Growth Program alongside Chris Durham. C . R . Odette both refines the confounding aesthetic heard in Flowers crud-improv duo, Creode, while also allowing for perpendicular forays into AQM-style shortwave collapse, Quick Stab-fried pop debris and deep Kenzo field recordings.

Artist: CABALLO TRIPODE
Title: Horror Vacui
Format: LP
Label: Tic Tac Totally
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Debut record from Valencia, Spains obscure CABALLO TRIPODE, a project formed and recorded during a hiatus by LE JONATHAN REILLY members about two years ago, and now a fully functioning band alongside LJR. Caballo Tripodes debut LP is an exercise in contrasting rustic-Spanish-folk and garage rock with deliberately futuristic chaos, time issues, and other various "unexpected choices" of all shapes and colors. A homespun psychedelic result with a wildness similar to Meercazs spacey rockscapes. Here we have songs that position themselves on a garage and surf backdrop only to depart right into a much deeper bag of tricks. All this while theyve kept one foot down on their romantic sensibilities, regional (Valencia, Spain) vibes and good ole crunchy guitars. So it never floats off into outer space either. A very unique and regional take on what "garage" and "surf" record can actually become in a post-garage and surf world that rarely attempts honest retooling efforts in their old shops." - Tic Tac Totally.

Title: Red Mecca
Format: LP
Label: Rough Trade
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
Original, sealed copies from 1981. "Red Mecca was produced at Western Works, Sheffield, and, although rioting at this time hadnt reached Cabaret Voltaires hometown, it was a particularly incendiary time across Britain and the tension was explicit through the news media. Explains Kirk, “that insurrection on the streets found its way into the music” and the album was seen by many as the alternative soundtrack to the unrest on the streets.

With Middle Eastern musical influences and a title that reflected the beginnings of long running tensions stemming from the Islamic Revolution and the resulting Afghanistan conflict and rise in fundamentalism, the buried vocals and large instrumental passages are a wonderful bridge between the punkier ethos of earlier releases, Mix Up and The Voice Of America and the more dance minded 2X45 andYashar EPs that followed.

Inspirations on the album were varied, but these tensions were particularly highlighted by “A Touch Of Evil”, which bookends the album and was itself was inspired by the Orson Welles film Touch of Evil (1958) and the soundtrack by Henry Mancini. For “Spread The Virus”, the inspiration came from William Burroughs and northern soul while CB became another, initially unlikely sounding, inspiration. CB radio was important at the time as an alternative method of communication. Says Richard, “we were thinking about doing a pirate radio at that time, which never happened, but buried in the sounds before “Red Mask”, are clips of CB radio transmissions.”

Red Mecca is an intriguing snapshot of a band continuing to experiment and evolve, different enough to anything of theirs before or after, and very different to whatever the rest of the planet was producing at the time (or since).” - Mute.

Label: DNT
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
Mastered by Pete Swanson. Includes glossy, colored insert. "It is with great pleasure that DNT Records presents the self-titled long player from Caboladies. Recorded by the three piece of Chris Bush, Eric Lanham, and Ben Zoeller, this collection draws a narrative thread through their past releases on Arbor, Students of Decay, Mountaain, and their own Smooth Tapes imprint. Its not so much a summation of their back catalog as it is a spotlight on a particularly fluid and holographic area of their sound. The result is a flowing and coherent collection of nuanced electronic mess. A real trip and an excellent demonstration of the Cabo ethos." - DNT.

Title: Renewable Destination
Format: LP
Label: Students of Decay
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"Recorded from 2009-2011, during which time Caboladies members Eric Lanham and Chris Bush relocated from Kentucky to Chicago, Renewable Destination constitutes the duos most refined and focused work to date. Both as a collaborative unit and under solo monikers Carl Calm and Flower Man, Lanham and Bush have produced a wealth of limited-run releases in recent years on labels such as Arbor, Dekorder, Digitalis, and their own Smooth Tapes imprint which document their uniquely fractured sonic sensibilities. Perhaps what amazes most about the pairs work is the sheer diversity of their palettes. At any given time, we get the sense that any sound is possible, as they construct intricately-designed edifices rife with microcosmic detail. It is this keen attention to the hyper-detailed that distinguishes Renewable Destination, and the oeuvres of Lanham and Bush as a whole, from their synth revivalist contemporaries.This is music that refuses to sit still, yet at the same proves remarkably coherent and, at times, strikingly beautiful. If pressed, one could perhaps locate the duos aesthetic somewhere between the sounds of Mouse on Mars and Microstoria and composers such as Francois Bayle and Bernard Parmegiani, but the soundworlds which Lanham and Bush inhabit are truly and uniquely their own. Edition of 300 LPs w/ digital download coupons." - Students of Decay

Title: Cacaw
Format: LP
Label: Permanent
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"If you dug the brutal noise rock sounds crammed onto the one side of their debut EP, youre gonna flip over their brand new LP. Its heavier, louder, and longer. Thats right, two full sides of Cacaws signature noise rock brutality. A big selling point for their first release was the fact that two former members of the Coughs are in Cacaw, however, Cacaw have since garnered their own audience and the Coughs reference seems barely worth mentioning any longer. For those of you who havent heard them yet, Cacaw takes the Coughs sound and distills it down to a more minimal yet no less intense brand of really fucking groovy noise rock. Cacaw have quickly become one of Chicagos most popular underground rock bands. Cacaws second record, just like their first release, is a doozie both sonically and visually. The grooves on the marbled colored vinyl contain some incredibly intense jams. The card stock tri-color jacket has also been diligently hand screen printed by band members." - Permanent.

Format: Double LP/CD
Label: Mirumir
Country: Russian Federation
Price: $38.00
“Originally released in 1986, Italian pianist and composer Roberto Cacciapaglias Generazioni del Cielo is a contemporary musical work in the form of oratory; it is born from a development of matured musical language across polyvalent experiences, ranging from classical to pop composition. The subject originates from the will to tell an unusual story, a story without events but with real emotions, drawing from contemporary literature and sacred texts. In the production, the music, which was classically conceived, is projected into an environment of technological media, where the ancient and the modern interact. Presented on double LP with CD included. Remastered at Glance Studio.” - Mirumir.

Title: Sonanze
Format: LP
Label: Wah Wah
Country: Spain
Price: $29.00
"Roberto Cacciapaglia had already gathered attention for his excellent work at the keyboards on Franco Battiatos legendary second LP Pollution before joining forces with Krautrock mastermind Rolf Ulrich Kaiser for the release of his 1975 masterpiece Sonanze. Cacciapaglia self-produced the album in Milan for the Cosmic Couriers label, and it certainly brings echoes of some cosmiche kraut experiments like those of Popol Vuh, Klaus Schulze or Tangerine Dream, yet retaining a unique personality of its own. Actually its the feel given by Cacciapaglias mixture of classical sense compositions (he was trained in Milans Giuseppe Verdi conservatory) with adventurous experimentalism (he worked for the RAIs phonology research team and also at the CNR in Pisa) what makes the sound of Sonanze so unique. According to the Scented Gardens of the Mind book, good musical references might be Terry Riley, Franco Battiato (Sulle corde di Aries), Klaus Schulze (Cyborg) and William Scheller (Lux Aeterna). In a 500 copies only limited edition featuring an insert with liner notes." -Wah Wah.

Country: Russian Federation
Price: $27.00
"An influential member of the Italian avant-garde, Roberto Cacciapaglia has spent the last four decades blurring the lines between classical and electronic music, developing a sound that has never been restricted by genre. A classically trained pianist and composer from Milan, Cacciapaglia first came to prominence in the early seventies as keyboardist for the king of experimental Italian pop, Franco Battiato. After recording his own debut LP, 1975s Sonanze in Milan, Cacciapaglia traveled to the Ohr/Cosmic Couriers studios in Cologne to mix the results under the watchful of eye of krautrock overlord Rolf-Kaiser Ulrich (Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze, Ash Ra Tempel). The resulting album was a mix of electronic (moog, synth) and classical instruments (guitar, oboe, trombone, clarinet) that was experimental in the cosmische sense, but with the musical chops and vision of a classically trained musician. 180 gram vinyl. Comes with a bonus CD of the album, includes15 bonus tracks recorded between 1972-74, but not released until 2000." - Mirumir.

Repressed. "Roberto Cacciapaglia is an Italian electronic composer whos made albums using every possible permutation of the same six notes, right up to modern classical, with The Ann Steel Album as the weird anomaly. Made with an American model who moved to Italy to make it big in fashion, Roberto took her languid, Laurie Anderson-esque voice and created a detached futurist popstar. The odd sound of these European futurist pop songs make it sound like the machines are breathing, creating a weird organic/electronic rhythm section. It has to be heard to be believed. With fans ranging from Geologist and Avey Tare from Animal Collective, Deerhunters Bradford Cox and Banjo or Freakout/Walls mainman Alessio Natalizia. The first time this album has been on vinyl since its initial small pressing in the 70s." -Half Machine.

Price: $27.00
Mirumir presents The Ann Steel Album, a reissue of an album of Roberto Cacciapaglia compositions sung by Ann Steel, originally released in 1979 as a self-titled album credited to Steel. "So who are Roberto Cacciapaglia and Ann Steel? The former is an Italian musician who specialized in electronic composition after starting his career in the early 1970s on the edges of the krautrock scene. The latter is a Michigan-bred singer who spun into Cacciapaglias orbit during a trip to Italy in the 1970s to do some modeling. The Ann Steel Album is the one-off result of that happy accident, a record so full of joy that its a surprise they werent tempted to go back for another bite once it was in the can. But its a credit to both of them that they knew when to stop, perhaps feeling that the sugary pop perfection of these recordings could never be replicated. Theres a clunky charm to many of the synth sounds, most of which influenced bands like Stereolab and the perennially underrated Pram in future years; Steel even has a strain to her voice thats reminiscent of Pram singer Rosie Cuckston" --Pitchfork. This reissue is presented on LP with CD included, and features two bonus tracks and an insert with lyrics. Remastered at Glance Studio.

Title: Den-en Ni Shisu OST
Format: CD
Label: Showboat/Sky Station
Country: Japan
Price: $29.00
"First reissue of this 1974 J.A. Ceasar-performed theatrical underground classic. "The early 70s in Japan are often painted as an era of political and artistic disillusionment. On the one hand, the state rode roughshod over widespread opposition by renewing a mutual security treaty with the US, forcibly purchasing farming land near Tokyo for the construction of a new airport and stamping down hard on student occupations of universities. In the face of the implacability of state power, the protest movements fluffy dreams of peaceful revolution were viciously scalpel-sculpted into new and violent forms by Red Army hijackings, lynchings and hostage taking. The sense of confusion and lost innocence was further emphasized by teenage thrill killers, coin locker babies and the bizarre coup detat-cum-public suicide of novelist Yukio Mishima. Against this background Japanese youth music began to discard the perky Western imitations of the Group Sounds boom and the college folkies, and slide into more appropriately brutal forms of self expression. Folk turned angry and personal, while rock groups like Las Rallizes Denudes, Flower Travellin Band and Keiji Hainos Lost Aaraaff discovered bad acid, dissonance and heavy electric blues. Some of the most exciting and evocative music of the time, however, was born out of the avant garde theatre groups that had played such a central role in the 60s ferment. One of the most important was the Tenjo Sajiki Company (its name taken from Marcel Carnes wartime occupation fantasy Les Enfants Du Paradis), formed by poet, film maker, boxing fan and all-around agent provocateur, Shuji Terayama. Renowned for Living Theatre-inspired audience participation happenings and extreme street theatre designed to shock the bourgeois, by 1970 the group had already become a haven for runaway teens, and a focus for police investigation. Terayama was canny enough to realize that co-opting their music was an ideal way to hijack adolescent energies, and he consistently used heavy amplified rock to jump-start his chaotic, socially critical acid operas. Heard today, even independent of their lyrical message, theyre astonishingly powerful as pieces of music, deploying huge Magma choruses alongside juggernaut organ, guitar, bass, drums and fully out-there vocalizing. The pick of this bunch is the soundtrack to Terayawas 1974 film Den-en Ni Shisu (Death In The Country). Described as a fictional autobiography, it tells of a sensitive adolescent poet who later becomes a film director, stuck with his neurotic mother in a rural northern backwater, who dreams of running off first with a neighbours wife and then with a traveling freakshow. The films fractured narrative of awakening sexuality and severing of parental bonds is captured in hallucinatory imagery and an equally ambitious soundtrack by J.A. Caesar, which binds the whole film together with a subtle, subconscious logic. The deployment of disparate elements in an all-consuming flow, which works even independently of the images, is masterly. The familiar psych guitar, organ and choral chanting are heavy enough in places -- as on the discs definitive reading of Caesars massive and haunting Wasan -- to approach Sabbath levels of dense pounding, and theres also a frighteningly visceral vocal turn from folk singer Kan Mikami. But the score also sees Caesar expanding his instrumental palette, scoring some tracks for sideshow brass band or gently plucked guitar, weeping violin and chant. The weird intervals of his sparse, medieval-influenced melodies linger in the memory with the force of nostalgia for a past not directly experienced. Its an amazing performance: from street hippy whod never picked up an instrument to film soundtrack composer in five years. Caesars soundtrack for Den-en Ni Shisu lost out by a single vote to Toru Takemitsu for the best film soundtrack of 1974." -- Alan Cummings, The Wire.

An album that sits comfortably alongside early Ash Ra Tempel, Cosmic Jokers and Atem-period Tangerine Dream. Those that like their music with a healthy dose of gloom, look no further.

Format: Double LP

Country: Germany
Price: $26.00
”… to consider the Song Books as a work of art is nearly impossible. Who would dare? It resembles a brothel, doesnt it?" --John Cage. “Complete Song Books, volume three in the Perihel series on Karlrecords, along with La Legende dEer (KR 024LP, 2016) and Douze Inventions en Six Modes De Jeu (KR 028LP, 2015), is dedicated to one of the most iconic composers of 20th century, John Cage. All 92 pieces of Song Books are presented here, with stunning interpretations by Reinhold Friedl, recorded at Rashad Beckers Clunk Studio who also contributed live electronics. John Cage (1912-1992) is one of the most important composers in modern music: with more than 250 compositions, many of which are considered key works of new music, and theoretical essays on composition, he significantly changed the way we think about and perceive music today. But Cage not only left a major impact in the academic world, he is also cited as an important inspiration by a wide range of diverse musicians from younger generations, be it electronic producers, experimentalists or noise artists. His Song Books, published 1970 in three volumes, is a collection of open works that contains not only songs, but a strange hybrid collection of compositions, graphic scores, meditation rules, experimental settings, absurd musical instructions, performance settings, musical references, and fluxus-inspired actions such as eating fruits or drinking cognac (Cage loved whiskey and cognac). When Reinhold Friedl (director of the ensemble Zeitkratzer) entered the Clunk Studio to record the whole cycle with Rashad Becker (who handled the feedback cabinet and live electronics), the idea was quite simple: to approach each single piece in an informal way but to do all 92 pieces in the right order. What came out in the end is a kaleidoscopic lecture and interpretation of the compositions with the help of a strange mixture of ancient and modern tools: new electronics, old and special microphones, self-built instruments, arbitrary garbage sounds, sophisticated live-electronics devices, and quotes. Complete Song Books turns out to be an early hymn for sonic freedom, a sonic promenade full of beautiful references. Constructed by Reinhold Friedl. Performed by: Reinhold Friedl - voice, toys, wooden games, metal objects, complex objects, microphones, garbage, ... ; Rashad Becker - feedback cabinet, live electronics. Mastered and cut at D&M, Berlin. 180 gram vinyl in an edition of 500; Includes insert and download code. Artwork by Lillevan.” - Karlrecords.

"I believe the use of noise to make music will continue and increase until we reach a music produced through the aid of electrical instruments which will make available for musical purposes any and all sounds that can be heard." --John Cage, 1937. "Although John Cage occasionally worked in large, sophisticated studios -- for example, when he composed Fontana Mix in 1958 -- his approach to electronic and tape music was often uncomplicated, makeshift, and pragmatic, employing simple tabletop devices: tape machines, phonograph cartridges, contact microphones, record players, portable radios, etc. He developed a soundworld that was utterly new, radical and demanding. It heralded the age of the loudspeaker, mass communication and Marshall McLuhans global village. The hiss, crackle and hum of electronic circuits, and the disembodied sounds, snatched by radio from the ether, spoke of the 20th century. Langham Research Centre works within the tradition firmly established by Cage, using resources that would have been available to him. For the realization of Cartridge Music, moving iron phonograph pickups were sourced and restored. These have a knurled screw designed to hold a steel phonograph needle and, in the piece, other objects are inserted and amplified: pieces of wire, toothpicks, paperclips, etc. The realization of Fontana Mix includes the individual mono tracks from Cages original tapes created in 1958. These are played using open-reel tape machines. These practices ensure we work within the limitations that Cage experienced and enable us to get close to the soundworld he inhabited." -Robert Worby, Langham Research Centre.

"When John Cage took to the stage at Milans Teatro Lirico on 2 December 1977 to read from a portion of his not yet published book, Empty Words, little did he know that he was about to incite one of the great art riots of the twentieth century! As Cage reads aloud in what sounds like a nonsensical language (the result of using the I-Ching to extract a series of sounds and syllables from the journal of Henry David Thoreau), the Italian audience (many of whom did not really know who Cage was or what to expect from the performance) begins to grow increasingly unruly, eventually yelling for Cage to get off the stage! Cage, however, simply ignores it and keeps right on reading above the din for over 2 full hours. This fully remastered triple LP box set of this historic performance also features an explanatory text along with accompanying illustrations and photographs of the event. 180 gram vinyl." -Mirumir.

Format: CD
Label: EM
Country: Japan
Price: $23.00
"In October 1962, John Cage and his great interpreter/co-visionary David Tudor visited Japan, performing seven concerts and exposing listeners to new musical worlds. This legendary "John Cage Shock," as it was dubbed by the critic Hidekazu Yoshida, is the source of this series of releases -- three CDs and a "best hits" double LP compilation. Recorded primarily at the Sogetsu Art Center in Tokyo on October 24, 1962 (with two performances from October 17 at Mido-Kaikan in Osaka), all recordings in this series are previously-unreleased. A major historical trove, unearthed. The performances on this tour featured Cage and Tudor with some noteworthy Japanese musicians playing pieces by Cage and a number of other composers. Volume 1 begins with Toru Takemitsus Corona for Pianists (1962), played by Tudor and Yuji Takahashi, an indeterminate piece scored using transparencies, a sign of Cages influence on younger Japanese composers of the era. Following this is Duo for Violinist and Pianist (1961) by Christian Wolff, written specifically for David Tudor and violinist Kenji Kobayashi. The final piece, a near-20-minute realization of Variations II (1961), is a rare example of the rougher side of Cage, work that presaged much of the live electronic music and noise of the following decades, an aspect of his oeuvre which is woefully under-represented on CD. Cage and Tudor, using well-amplified contact microphones on a piano, deliver an electrifying performance, alternating distorted stretches of harsh 60s reality with bountiful silences. The John Cage Shock series features truly historical recordings, all previously-unreleased, of compositions by an amazing roster of international composers. The intensity of these has remained hidden and unheard for half a century, but remains undiminished. Features rare photos plus liner notes in Japanese and English with commentary by Toshi Ichiyanagi." - EM.

The titular shock of this series is delivered even more forcefully with the next piece, John Cages 2655.988" for 2 Pianists and a String Player (1961), which was first performed the year before in Darmstadt by Tudor and Kenji Kobayashi, a combination of two of Cages solo pieces. The performance here, from Osaka, has a slightly altered title and the composition becomes a seismic quartet with the addition of Toshi Ichiyanagi and Yoko Ono, with the four performers providing acutely-angled blasts of sound. Features rare photos plus liner notes in Japanese and English plus commentary by Toshi Ichiyanagi." - EM.

Next is Composition II for 2 Pianos (1960/1961) by Michael von Biel, lovely and sparse, performed by David Tudor and Toshi Ichiyanagi. The disc closes with Ichiyanagis Piano Music #7 (1961), performed also by Tudor and Ichiyanagi, beds of silence disrupted by pianistic stabs, music box madness, traffic recordings, percussive thumps, tape manipulations and more.

"Sonatas and Interludes for Prepared Piano (1946-48). New recording by Nurit Tilles in a deluxe 3LP (45 rpm) audiophile box set. The release of this limited edition (433 numbered copies) is in honor of John Cages Centennial Year, produced in conjunction with the John Cage Trust. Includes archival material, a 40-page color book with essays, pressed on 200 gram vinyl and slipcase. "If the sinking of the Titanic in 1912 marked the end of the 19th century, then John Cages birth that year represented the start of a new one, musically speaking. Cage created hundreds of works and to my ears Sonatas and Interludes is one, more than any other, that will stand the test of time. Like a Merce Cunningham dance, there is something new to experience with each encounter of this magnificent piece. By my count, there are over 20 recordings of Sonatas and Interludes with each performer (and production and engineering team) bringing something new to the realization. However, this is the first recording of this seminal piece ever presented in a 45 rpm format for the audiophile. It is my hope that listeners will marvel at the breathtaking sonics of the recording, but more than that -- the superlative performance by Nurit Tilles. When Laura Kuhn and I first discussed this project we immediately locked on Nurit. Her preparation and playing is nothing short of magnificent. And as wonderful is her playing, Nurits beautiful spirit comes through with verve in these grooves. A noted filmmaker said there is no history, only historians. This recording is historic." --Anthony B. Creamer III. Performed by Nurit Tilles, piano, at the Richard B. Fisher Center for the Performing Arts at Bard College, Sosnoff Stage March 21-23, 2011.

"Jeanne Dielman present a reissue John Cage and Christian Wolffs self-titled album, originally released in 1963. This album was an early showcase of both 20th century composerss experimental chops, and is highly regarded as some of their finest work. Cages piece, which spans the whole of the first side, was originally composed in 1960, and like many of his pieces, would never be performed the same way twice. It involves the overlaying of transparencies to create the "score", while performers manipulate phonographic cartridges in a variety of ways to create amplified sound. To add to the effect, this particular performance is actually the superimposition of four performances. In all, it is a truly groundbreaking piece of 20th century classical. Wolffs side, while less extreme, is equally innovative, and a window into his particular pointillist vision of music." - Jeanne Dielman.

Label: Doxy
Country: Italy
Price: $35.00
"Subtitled: New Aspect Of Form In Instrumental And Electronic Music. Originally issued as in 1959 on Smithsonian Folkways, the initial idea for Indeterminacy came from avant-garde pianist, David Tudor, who suggested that John Cage give a lecture that was simply the telling of stories. Cage did this in Brussels in September 1958. For this lecture Cage simply stood in front of an audience and told 30 stories without musical accompaniment. Upon returning to the States in 1959, Cage decided to record the stories, but this time with the musical accompaniment of David Tudor. For the recording the two men were placed in different studios where they could not hear each other, while Tudor performed portions of Cages Concert for Piano and Orchestra (1957-58) along with pre-recorded selections of Cages Fontana Mix (Milan, 1958), and Cage simultaneously told 90 one-minute stories (sped up or slowed down according to the storys length). In a career that spanned over half a century, this album is considered to be one of Cages best. It has never been reissued on LP until now. Includes liner notes by John Cage. Gatefold sleeve." -Doxy

Title: The Great Lunar Oil Strike, 1976
Format: LP
Label: Time-Lag
Country: USA
Price: $33.00
"First ever reissue of this hopelessly rare and obscure 1971 rural Virginia private press folk masterpiece. A true anomaly in the seemingly bottomless world of self released albums, this one charts a truly unique realm all its own. While the sound itself may draw some clear influence from classics of the day, even lifting the band name from a song by the band, the mood & vibe here is ponderously uncharted territory, seemingly birthed complete from some parallel sonic reality. Crude lo-fi metaphysical basement folk rock filtered through a deeply southern gothic/Appalachian/Americana band aesthetic and executed in the purest, most sincere, spontaneous, vibe-thick sense possible. The atmosphere trapped in these grooves is truly as strong as it gets and is sure to engulf any open-minded listener given half a chance. The near magical power of the album seems to lay in its extreme polarization; on the one hand there is a fully developed lyrical depth and intellect thats profoundly poetic, even novelistic, yet the music & recording is shockingly raw, unhinged, completely unselfconscious, and downright weird. Its a dusty, creaky, ebb & flow of clackity percussion, acoustic strum, shaky low-watt electric guitar licks, occasional floorboard rattling bass, and thick southern drawl. Even the recording quality has a bizarre lo-fi character of its own, with some sounds seeming to barely hit the tape at all, while others are wildly overblown, wrapping the whole deal in a gauzy tape hiss fog, with hints of garagy distortion. The album progresses with a casual but surprisingly purposeful intent, hitting an intimately mystical, visionary, dream-like arc through the entire second side of the record and ending in complete dissipation. All taken together its a seriously teleportive trip to a flicker in time & place that is really quite special. The scratchy textless black & white band photo cover art suites the album perfectly: striking yet vague, timeless yet ancient, simple yet mysterious. Pressed on highest quality 180gm virgin vinyl and packaged in an exact reproduction heavy old-style cover, with exact repro labels. Also includes a double-sided heavy stock insert with new liner notes from main songwriter and vocalist Roger Mannon, as well as introductory notes from band scholar and devoted fan Jack D. Fleischer.

"Out-Sider present the first reissue of Homegrown (1982) by Cal. This is a totally under-the-radar US private pressing from 1982 with 60s and 70s influenced psychedelic hard-rock full of distorted guitar and freaky synths with some mellowed-out folky moments. Cal - also known as "Cal Rock & Roll" - was a band formed in the mid 70s in New York by some veteran musicians from the club scene. The band is made up of Larry Calabrese on guitar & vocals, Andy Barone on bass, Jerry Joly on drums/vocals and Jeffrey Gaer on keyboards. Famous for their powerful live shows - one of their stellar moments was opening for Leslie West and Mountain - Cal secured a faithful fan base, especially among the biker crowd. In 1980, they recorded Homegrown, their only album. As the title suggests, it was self-produced by the band and recorded by Larry at his 8-track home studio. But unlike other similar private albums, theres nothing amateur here. This is a perfectly recorded & played effort, featuring well-crafted songs. Theres lot of loud distorted guitar, Hammond, analog synths and some Doors influence on the vocals, especially on the lysergic "Couragous Cat". Homegrown was released in 1982 in an edition of 2000, most of which were discarded due to pressing faults. Also, the album was mastered at lower speed. This reissue has remastered sound with corrected pitch/speed. Soon after, Larry met Todd Rundgren at a recording studio and he expressed interest in the band and some of their songs. Famous record label Sugarhill were also interested in adding Cal to their roster but nothing came of it in the end. So Homegrown vanished into obscurity until some original copies were discovered by psych dealers and collectors in the 90s. "Despite the 1982 release date, this upstate NY album feels like vintage 70s stoner music, its mostly mild hard-rock with some psych and prog moves" -- Aaron Milenski (The Acid Archives) File next to other psych misfits such like T Kail, D.R.

At this time, rock music was a serious movement, removed from the joke it once was, quite unaware of the joke it would eventually become, and things like this sometimes happened. Cale, classically trained on the viola, must have been pretty pleased to get a shot to record with the 60s king of minimalist pulse, Terry Riley. The album features 4 collaborative tracks between the two; while maybe not earth-shattering, they are quite fine for horizontal home listening pleasure at just about any hour of the day. Instrumental jams, mixing the styles of the two players pretty evenly (if youre vaguely awake, you can imagine this easily).

Title: Come Quietly
Format: 7"
Label: All Hands Electric
Country: USA
Price: $5.00
"Edition of 500. Culled from the archive of unreleased songs by Zachary Cale comes two unearthed gems, available for the first time through All Hands Electric. Recorded during the interim of his second LP "Walking Papers" and his band Illuminations "See-Saw" LP, these two songs were originally cut as demos, but the fresh sound and spontaneity of the recordings warranted a release of their own. "Come Quietly" is a field recording from the modern age, complete with chirping birds and the groan of passing cars. The song is a sort of noir narrative with lyrics that illustrate a dialogue between a captor and his captive. Taking cues from the pre-war folk tradition, Cale adopts the voice of both characters. Featuring mournful mandolins and tortured harmonicas over a countrified mariachi stomp, its as ragged and tuneful as folk music gets, and the inflections in Cales glass-breaking yowl recall some of Kurt Cobains acoustic demos from the Sup Pop heyday. "The Wedding Party" is a stream of consciousness ode to love with lyrical images floating by like faces in train windows. The vocal melody is undeniably catchy, sitting perfectly in the space between hypnotic fingerpicked guitar rhythms and ghost-like backing harmonies courtesy of Prudence Teacup. With its rapid fire couplets and unabashed pop-minded melody it sounds kind of like Bob Dylan covering the Beach Boys in a dimly lit basement. The rush of images and the giddy, pulse like rhythm makes "The Wedding Party" another classic in Zachary Cales growing canon of songs." -All Hands Electric

Title: Noise of Welcome
Format: LP
Label: All Hands Electric
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"On his third album, Louisiana bred Brooklyn resident ZACHARY CALE casts a wide net, encompassing everything hes done previously whether solo or with band accompaniment. Recorded in 2009 at his home studio Noise of Welcome is a collection of songs that is distinctly modern in tone and substance. Moving from acoustic ballads and oddly tuned instrumentals to electrified country and Kinksian pop the album projects a kind of psych/folk/rock hybrid, recalling the genre shifts of Fleetwood Macs Tusk or Big Stars Sisters Lovers. Featuring performances by members of Cales former ensemble, ILLUMINATIONS, and guest spots by CHRIS BROKAW, D. CHARLES SPEER and ANNI ROSSI, Cales signature finger-picking technique is reinforced with grander orchestral movements and a full backing band which helps to illuminate the brilliance of his craft. Lyrically we are given what weve come to expect of Cale: thought provoking narrative hymnals, with bracing rumination and longing delivery, but these songs feel lighter. Perhaps this is because hes shifted away from the dark imagery of past efforts into a spiritual twilight, with themes of forgiveness, redemption, absolution and even... celebration. His voice too has grown more versatile, with subtle vibrato lifts complimenting higher pitched cries, bringing to mind contemporaries such as Cass Mccombs or Andy Cabic. Noise of Welcome may prove to be Zachary Cales greatest achievement as a singer/composer to date: a testament to his unique craftmanship and unconditional love of songs." - All Hands Electric. "Zachary Cale is the best singer-songwriter working right now...

Title: Walking Papers
Format: LP
Label: All Hands Electric
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"WALKING PAPERS, the sophomore album by Zachary Cale, marks the artists leap from a four-track-bedroom-folkie to a songwriter of visionary scope. Recorded in 2005 in the legendary Bearsville Sound Studios by Marcata engineer, Kevin Mcmahon (The Walkmen, Titus Andronicus), WALKING PAPERS was granted a belated release in December 2008 on the burgeoning Brooklyn-based label, All Hands Electric. Ghostly in sound, the album evokes the austere finger-style guitar work of John Fahey and the poetic couplets of Townes Van Zandt. Moving away from the lo-fi intimacy of his debut album, OUTLANDER SESSIONS (released on New World of Sound in 2005), Cale is accompanied by an array of musicians. Though at times classically inspired, and at others roots-based, the instrumentation is always understated, providing a focus on lyric and melody. Fittingly, the singers voice has gracefully matured into the road-weary rasp that his story-based lyrics require. WALKING PAPERS exhibits a genuine craft of American tradition; the songs are bona fide gems with every note and lyrical phrase informed by a quiet beauty, both familiar and timeless." - All Hands Electric. ⿿Zachary Cale is a songwriters songwriter, as prolific as he is original. His voice can be delicate for love or wry for satire. The ability to hear what is in a song has guided him well in the making of his own. While the influence of traditional American music is always present in his compositions, he is able to infuse something fresh and new to the form." - John Allen (WFMU).

Utilizing long duration and precise pitch, they forged an aggressively mesmerizing dream music -- denying the activity of composition and elaborating shared ideas of performance and improvisation.

With the recent discovery of an additional cache of tapes, now restored and digitally remastered, the world can step Inside the Dream Syndicate for the very first time." - Table Of The Elements.[For information about LaMonte Youngs response to this release (which he did not authorize, and which he considers to be very poor in quality, with a missing segment of music, inaccurate sound mix, etc), please refer to: http://www.melafoundation.org/statemen.htm]

Title: U
Format: LP
Label: Kraak
Country: Belgium
Price: $27.00
"A true gem from the Portuguese underground. Sparse electronics blended with mystic vocalism -- think Ghédalia Tazartes or Diamanda Galás. Deep in the Portuguese underground, Calhau! constructs an absurd universe in which nightmares, rural Catholic mysticism, and surrealist spirituality play the lead role. Performance, movie, and music contribute to one melancholic and cruel whole. The music is deeply rooted in Roman mysticism, using the dark hand of alchemy to beseech the insane 21st century. The duo sounds like an updated version of Ghédalia Tazartes and Throbbing Gristle, blending tape collages and sparse electronics, not unlike the PAN back catalog. First and foremost, Calhau! are their own island, at the point where Old Europe disappears into the sea. Ú is their third album. The A-side builds upon five song particles, in which a grotesque voice floats over hard samples and rough electronics. The voice sings in Portuguese, or Latin, maybe French, or Mongolian throat singing. Vom Grills gurgles could be a reference. Side B is a re-release of the limited 2014 mini-CD A Corte DUrubu. Its one long droney piece, a result of a collaboration with a choir, recorded on the Portuguese coast. The composition is a loose interpretation of Gregorian pieces, like Stabat Mater and Veni Creator Spiritus, mixing choral works with gritty synths and sinister opera. With Ú, Calhau! establish their status as the most talented duo of the Portuguese avant-garde." - Kraak.

"First ever reissue, deluxe and legit, of this quite rare 1976 southern California private press gem. Its a strange, fantastical, and totally distinct album that will have you sucked in almost instantly. This one is extremely hard to pin down - think something like a loner powerpop rock opus, heavy on the psychedelic production values, studio dreamer vibes, and timeless hooks. The songs are unusual but infectious, the production is breezy and expansive but not polished, and the vocals are constantly morphing yet always effective. In fact, the hazy chameleon-like personality here might be one of the best things going for the album, as not only does Eddie seem to be channelling a handful of different vocalists, but the whole mood and sound shifts around unexpectedly as well. Even the potential low points somehow work, and there are surprises around every turn. The often questioning, self-reflective lyrics add yet another layer of mystique to the trip. Musically the mellowest points hover around gorgeous, airy, rural-tinged, floating psychedelia with beautifully layered acoustic & electric guitars, tinkling keys, and lush mellotron. When things pick up theyre truly rocking, with tight punchy rhythms and Eddie firing off big chunky guitar riffs like hes playing to the packed stadium behind his third eye. All the studio tricks at hand are put to full use with sweet Leslie guitar effects, special tones, backwards solos, elaborate multi-tracked sound fields, and some of the most wonderfully bent synthesizer soloing ever laid to tape. The perfectly strange and beautiful cover art seals the deal. False Egos is mastered from the artists well preserved and great sounding master tapes. Pressed on highest quality 180gm virgin vinyl, and packaging in an exact reproduction heavy old-style cover, with exact repro labels. One time pressing of 700 copies.

Title: Alls Well

Country: UK
Price: $17.50
The complete works of this post-This Heat band featuring Charles Hayward, recorded 1982-1986. Featuring these original releases: Meridian, The Ghost Trade & Greenfingers LP/EPs. "This definitive edition collects the entire released output of Camberwell Now (two EPs and an LP), newly re-mastered by the band and repackaged with full notes, lyrics, additional photographs and artwork. Chronologically, Camberwell Now immediately succeeded This Heat, Charles Hayward continuing to work with This Heats last bassist Trefor Goronwy, and the two of them joining forces with Stephen Rickard who, for the new band, designed his unique cassette switchboard, a kind of proto-sampler -- though thats not the half of it (Steves article fully explaining the device is reprinted in the new, expanded booklet that comes with the CD). Musically, Camberwell both followed and departed from the style of This Heat. Formally and gesturally there are common elements, but there is far greater transparency and the sound palette is quite different: the music is more placed than grown, as the slow accumulation and evolution of material in This Heat gives way to a more immediate and orderly development of the material in Camberwell Now. The songs -- nostalgic, scary, and quietly desperate -- peer into the future to find harbour but confront only fragments of ruin. Debris and disturbance eat away at the root and corrode each shiny surface (mostly the musical work of the cassette switchboard). The juxtaposition of powerful, virtuosic playing and the eerie, often unidentifiable keenings, chords and constant motion of the cassettes is one of the things that make Camberwell Now so expressive of its time -- when the whole social and political fabric of a no-longer-great Britain was unravelling. Camberwell Now worked and recorded in Cold Storage, and toured intermittently through Europe between 1983 and 1986, when they disbanded." - Recommended

"Taking inspiration from seafaring and imperialism, and the fact that the music was created within close proximity to the meridian line in Greenwich, the Meridian EP was originally intended to be a project for This Heat. The groups departing member Charles Bullen plays on the opening track, Cutty Sark, named for the famed British clipper ship. The second EP, 1987s Greenfingers, was their final recorded work and, according to Hayward, its possible to hear the group atomizing and preparing to go its separate ways within its grooves. The only This Heat or Camberwell Now recording not to have been produced at Brixtons Cold Storage studios, it was recorded as a DIY exercise and -- unusually for either of the groups -- was not pored over laboriously for a great deal of time. The EP also saw the addition of a new member, Maria Lamburn, primarily on sax, whose Element Unknown was inspired by her experiences in the nuclear protest camp at Greenham Common. Comprising tracks that overlapped between This Heat and Camberwell Now, the EPs concerned themselves with information technology, surveillance, propaganda and what Hayward describes as day-to-day, hand-to-mouth survival -- all pertinent concerns in a fractured Britain under the rule of right-wing Iron Lady Margaret Thatcher, and perhaps still as pertinent today in fractured, recession-hit, isolationist Britain. The group dispersed after a final European tour, amicably, quietly, and differently, the latter their MO throughout a unique career. Goronwy, Hayward and Rickard all share their experiences and thoughts on The Camberwell Now in liner notes accompanying this landmark release: young and old, birth and death captured on two sides of vinyl. Official vinyl re-issue in collaboration with original members. 24 bit/96 kHz re-master from original analog tapes. Restored art, expanded to a gatefold tip-on jacket.

Title: The Ghost Trade
Format: LP

Country: USA
Price: $26.00
"Camberwell, in South London, pops up infrequently in pop culture. Perhaps you know it from the Camberwell Carrot, the heroically sized joint smoked in cult movie Withnail & I, or perhaps -- if youre attuned to experimental music -- you know of Camberwell Now. The group formed from the ashes of This Heat, the art-noise group whose catalog was reissued on Modern Classics Recordings in early 2016. Not so much a supersession as a continuation of that group, Camberwell Now featured This Heats vocalist / drummer Charles Hayward, who assembled an unusual line-up comprising Stephen Rickard, a former BBC sound engineer, on field recordings and tape manipulation and Trefor Goronwy on bass, vocals and ukulele. We had a very specific set of skills, says Hayward, in new liner notes compiled for this long overdue reissue, and it wasnt immediately clear to us how best to bring them together so that we could play live. Arriving in 1986, The Ghost Trade, the groups sole full-length LP, was what existed at the confluence of live performance and studio experimentation. Similar to This Heats process, the group spent two years in Cold Storage experimenting with the studio and assembling finished songs from vast quantities of tapes. Their two EPs, re-issued as The EP Collection, were borne of a similar process but each with unique yields. The tracks that eventually formed The Ghost Trade were songs forged in the bleak beauty of Thatchers London. To me, the sounds invoked humanity trapped behind and inside a world constructed of glass, steel, and concrete, frozen inside the textures like prisoners of the twilight zone, humanity haunting a landscape it had made for itself, says Hayward. First vinyl re-issue, includes bonus track Daddy Needs A Throne. Official re-issue in collaboration with original members. 24 bit/96 kHz re-master from original analog tapes. Restored art, expanded to a gatefold tip-on jacket. Includes download card, 8 page booklet with track notes by the artists, lyrics and archival photos."

Format: LP

Price: $19.00
"Recorded during a recent trek to the Pacific Northwest, this session is very damaged by the post-tongue explosive devices packed by each of the quartets members. Skittering along the most devious edge of improvisational madness, Greg, Greg, Bill and Mr. Shoup bring four chunks of deep underground moisture into the air for the first time. Let us make to examine them. Morning greets the listener beneath a raucous grackle filled tree, mounting to a commuters rage. Then along comes a mage with mushrooms, and the growl and rasp spreads out into what one must imagine a stoned rabbits brain records from a dawn. In Separating a door from a window, Mr. Shoups sax limns the wall of sound into permeable spaces. The horns and percussion throw up bramble hollers of humorous squawk, but in the end, Wally is triumphant. Like smoke snaking over the door, Transom is a very present and seductive piece. If you are a programmer, this is an excellent sound experience to loop, as it is both loving and bossy. Horn and reed lead you into Nothing is deprived of its warmth, and then gleefully pierce your eardrums with needles. Once the path has been cleared to your brain, molten notes are poured in and, like a Dead Head prostrate with his pipe, you become one with the universe. A warm universe. At first I thought it was weird they named this album after the lost book of Tolkiens Silmarillion. Now Im not so sure." - Lili Dwight/Byron Coley, Deerfield MA 2015.

"A timely reissue of an LP that originally saw the light of day on vinyl, courtesy of the esteemed Finnish label Lal Lal Lal, some time toward the start of this millennium. Well, the 300 copies soon disappeared, Campbell and Lal Lal Lal moved on to further releases and everyone was happy. That is, all apart from those who missed out and had to trawl ebay and rare record lists if they wanted to hear what amounted to only the second Neil Campbell solo record, after 1997s "These premises are no longer bugged". Campbell is of course familiar from his recordings with Vibracathedral Orchestra, Sunroof!, Richard Youngs, The A Band and many more over the past two decades. His current project, Astral Social Club, goes from strength to strength, prompting Dusted magazine to call it "the purest expression of his art of the ecstatic on record". In many ways, "SOL POWR" is the logical precursor to Astral Social Club, with its heavy focus on keyboard-driven electronic pulse flotation - when it was originally released Julian Cope remarked that it "sounds as though Martin Rev had teamed up with Moebius and Roedelius, during their CLUSTER 2 period". This reissue, the first release on Campbells own Music Mundane label, supplements the original vinyl LP with three additional tracks from the same period. Two of them were originally released on a miniscule-edition 7" lathe-cut by Stavangers Gold Soundz Records, while the third was commissioned for download on Brian Lavelles online TechNOH label. They fit right in with the LPs original seven tracks, forming fifty of the most glorious minutes in Campbells not-inconsiderable discography. Edition of 500 in hard DVD style case."

"Two individuals with long histories in improvised and experimental music come together through, and despite, modern technology-NEIL CAMPBELL (ASTRAL SOCIAL CLUB, VIBRACATHEDRAL ORCHESTRA) and ROBERT HORTON (THE APPLIANCES, PLATEAU ENSEMBLE, EGGHATCHER).  Although Campbell and Horton have never met in person, they met virtually on the Jeweled Antler mailing list. Both musicians are ridiculously prolific and prone to collaboration. They got to talking disco, probably as an antidote to all the folk and how to record bug chatter. Campbell says, "Robert TOLD me in an email one day well make a disco record together... who was I to argue?" As far as the end result being disco, Horton notes "we failed at that." "It was a good idea," writes Campbell, "but youre also correct to draw attention to the missing of original target, which I really like - nothing better than the happy accident." Horton continues, "collaborations are about being surprised and this one did that often. Just when I thought I knew where it was going it went somewhere else. We still have it in our future plans to make a dance record. 70s retro disco with a serious virus inside that causes it to bleed drones." The resulting album that had to be pieced back together is something that mixes organic, almost crystalline drones with off kilter beat patterns and lopsided techno. Trojandropper is beatific, odd, and an anomaly to even its creators, like all projects that take on a life of their own." - Zum Audio

Title:
Format: CD
Label: Catsup Plate
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Recorded largely on a screened-in porch in rural Maryland, _Campfire Songs_ represents a significant change in sound and technique for the Animal Collective. Acoustic guitars have replaced the electronic effects of previous releases like _Danse Manatee_ and _Spirit Theyre Gone, Spirit Theyve Vanished_, captured live on three strategically placed mini-disc recorders (with field recordings added to two tracks at a later point). Though the sound is radically different from the digital processing and sound manipulation previously employed, the results are clearly of a piece with the percussive, almost incantatory feel of their earlier records. While these unorthodox recording conditions go against your traditional ideas of sound purity, the audible hum of the outdoors adds a real depth and presence impossible to achieve otherwise. At different points, one can hear the rush of wind, birdcalls, rain (?), and even an airplane passing overhead at one quiet moment. As the record/project name suggests, there is a comfortable warmth here; the palette of instruments and natural sounds are familiar and inviting. From there, the trio (3/4 of the Collective appears on this recording) knits together threads of guitar strum and pluck; chanted, nearly wistful vocalharmonies; and often a pulsing rhythm that seems like it might break apart at any moment, and sometimes does. The melodies are simple and repetitive, recalling the early work of the Third Ear Band, 70s German commune-music, and similar folk-psychedelic explorers. But these are all mere starting points: here, there is real insight into notions of "natural" sound, a retreat from technology and a return to traditional instrumentation, and conventional song structures broken down, drawn out, and reassembled. The resulting record is beautiful, heartfelt, mournful, and brimming with spontaneous energy." - Catsup Plate.

"Vocalist Damo Suzukis departure from Can in 1973 had forced the band to re-evaluate their sound. Now with Michael Karoli and Irmin Schmidt sharing vocal duties, the band had also begun drawing on influences from disco and glam. While still remaining staunchly outside the mainstream, they undoubtedly became more accessible to a wider audience, and soon had a huge fan base in the UK. In fact, just a few months after playing the live show found on this double LP (recorded in Lyon in January of 1976), Can was even on Top of the Pops!" -B13.

"2014 release. 1979s, Can (aka Inner Space), the bands last proper album, was less experimental than its previous releases, with Michael Karoli doing more straightforward vocals and guitar. Having spent the previous decade taking elements of the classical avant-garde (i.e. Karlheinz Stockhausen) and underground rock (i.e Velvet Underground) to create a kind of genreless "new music"--and influencing countless bands in the process--Can had reached the natural end of its journey. Although founding members Irmin Schmidt (keyboards) andJaki Liebezeit (drums) can still be heard, Rebop Kwaku Baah and Rosko Gee of Traffic fame have been added to the mix, with former bassist Holger Czukay doing the editing.” - Lilith.

"This album is made up of one long jam session recorded live-in-studio at Inner Space in Cologne during the 1973 Future Days sessions. More ambient than their previous efforts, Future Days was also singer Damo Suzukis final album with Can. Members of Can had first encountered the self-defined 20th century nomad, Kenji Damo Suzuki, a few years earlier on the streets of Cologne. It was shortly after original Can vocalist Malcolm Mooney had left the band and they were left without a singer on the night of a sold-out concert. Upon spying Damo on the streets of Cologne, Holger Czukay just walked up to him and asked him if he wanted to sing at the concert - no rehearsal, just get up on stage with the band and sing. Damo, of course, accepted and the classic Can line-up was born." - B13. 140 gram LP. Clear purple vinyl with red label in PVC sleeve with black lettering. Limited edition 500 copies.

Title: Horror Trip In The Paperhouse
Format: LP
Label: Blue Sea
Country: Italy
Price: $18.00
"Documenting their famous free concert in Cologne on Feb. 3, 1972, the group locks into one long, propulsive groove after another, blending minimalism with improvisation. Whereas "Spoon" and "Paperhouse" diverge quite a bit from the studio cuts with more improvisational moves, the versions of "Bring Me Coffee or Tea" and "Halleluwah" are fairly straightforward renderings of the "Tago Mago" tracks, though certainly with their habituallooseness there is still enough variation. The only non-studio album track, "Love Me Tonight," is a nice bit of avant funk, with powerful rhythms and some great keyboard drones. "Spoon" is the highlight, with Michael Karolis soaring, droning guitar solos wailing over the perfectly metronomic rhythm section, until halfway through the song the group turns up the intensity. Very good sound quality and ex cellent per form ances make this essential for Can fans . Packed in a 2 color silkscreened cover, and limited to 500 copies."

Holger Czukay, now freed from bass duties, began experimenting with an array of electronic sounds, which he also began adding to the mix in part to counterbalance Cans new supercharged rhythm section.

Although the band was still playing traditional instruments, their spontaneous compositions had little to do with the rehearsed conventions of rock. Tracks like Father Cannot Yell and the 20-minute Yoo Doo Right from their debut LP Monster Movie, and recorded live in Cologne in July 1969, were the first steps into the beyond, setting the tone for a whole new genre of German music that the world would soon be calling krautrock." - B13. 140 gram LP.

Whilst dismantling the studio, master tapes were found and stored in the Spoon archive. With barely legible labeling, no one was sure what was on these until Irmin Schmidt and long time collaborator Jono Podmore started to go through over 30 hours of music. What they found was years of archived material, not outtakes, but rather tracks which had been shelved for a variety of reasons.

"A unique combination of recordings and artwork which stands up as an enduring testament of the fertile hippie scene which flourished in the Baleric islands during the seventies. Known to record collectors and psych/folk/prog music aficionados alike, this multicultural band formed in the island of Mallorca in the mid-70s and recorded a beautiful (and outrageously scarce) album which has gained cult status as years passed by. The Book Of Am was originally devised as a beautifully illustrated book focused on various world folklore and traditions, coupled with 4 LPs which would represent a musical. This (never completed) 4LP set would correspond to the four phases of day (Dawn, Morning, Afternoon, Night). Only the first of these records (Morning) would eventually see the light of day in a tiny private pressing which changes hands nowadays for obscene amounts of money.

"Chapter Music present a reissue of A Love Affair With Nature, the 1989 second album by Australian DIY icons, The Cannanes. This reissue comes as a picture disc with new liner notes, an extensive PDF booklet and a full 13 digital bonus tracks from early singles and unreleased sessions. First formed in Sydney in the mid 80s, The Cannanes are one of the most celebrated underground bands of the Antipodes, with a book, a documentary and even a pair of limited edition Converse sneakers devoted to them. Over their 30 year career they have amassed 11 albums and innumerable singles on labels all around the world. They have toured the US, UK, Mexico, Japan and Europe repeatedly. A Love Affair With Nature holds a special place in The Cannaness canon. After a series of early lineup shuffles, the band condensed into their classic core trio - drummer David Nichols, guitarist Stephen ONeil and heartbreaking vocalist Fran Gibson. Each contributes songs that veer between insightful and absurd, conveying a 20-something inner-city existence that feels simultaneously fleeting and universal. Initially self-released on colored vinyl by the band, Love Affair was subsequently licensed by Chicago label Feel Good All Over, with a CD version a few years later on another classic Chicago imprint, Ajax Records. The Cannanes began touring the US and UK regularly, becoming one of Kurt Cobains favorite bands (as mentioned in his diaries) and had further releases on quintessentially 90s labels such as K Records, Harriet and Little Teddy. Chapter released a split single in 1996 and their album Living The Dream in 2000, before signing back on for 2013s Howling At All Hours (CH 103CD/LP), their first album in more than a decade.

Title: Playing in the Dirt
Format: 12"

Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"This LP exists through an act of sheerest serendipity. Scott Seward of John Doe Jr. Records up in Greenfield, MA, was talking to one of his regulars, an Amherst-based photographer named Bob Cantius. In the course of their conversations, Scott learned that Bob had -- in a former life -- done some experimental sound recording, portions of which featured his own homemade string instrument: the Brunt-Milter. Eventually, Bob was able to turn up tapes of two finished pieces. Both were begun with the Brunt-Milter in 1964, then finished off with added sound sources and mixing in 1968. When they were started, Cantius had just finished his arts degree at Montclair State University, and was working in a dirt-floored studio in Paterson. He then spent three years getting a Masters at NYU Film School, and thats when he added the new work to his instrumental beginnings. The music is a great collage of strange strings, street recordings (some made by Bob while he was doing sound for film shoots), and various effects, techniques, and radio manipulations. Its a rather remarkable find, and documents a style of experimental thinking and creativity that was common at the time, but usually ended up in the dumpsters of history. Includes text related to the little-known Happenings scene at Montclair State and other secret histories" --Byron Coley, 2015.

As a member of San Francisco legends Tarentel and Types premier astral travelers The Alps, Jefre Cantu-Ledesma is hardly a new addition to the label, so its hard to believe that Love Is A Stream is his first Type solo album. With previous releases on Arbor, Spekk and his own Root Strata imprint, this latest album marks his journey into the beautifully cacophonous world of dream pop. Shoegaze music has been much maligned in recent years, probably due to its rebirth and subsequent explosion of popularity (which gave rise to hundreds of young bands aping the over twenty-year-old sound); however it was only a fragment of the genre that these bands attempted to recreate. On Love Is A Stream, instead of focusing on tired, melancholy ballads, Cantu-Ledesma focuses solely on expansive, almost noise-ridden hopefulness. This is the kind of noise audiences fell in love with when My Bloody Valentine blew their ear drums performing Loveless, or the kind of harmonic excess heard on Catherine Wheels Ferment, but taken into deeper, more abstract realms. Love Is A Stream is dedicated to love itself, and the dreamy, shimmering blown-out textures might at first sound like white noise before they ultimately give way to blissful harmony and hidden melody. Underneath the grit and growl are hidden guitar parts, synthesizer drones and even vocals (provided by Lisa McGee, John Twells and Maxwell August Croy) that succeed in swelling the dense, tape-saturated songs to heady new heights and belie any influences they might have. On each listen the mind strips away another layer of dust and bones to reveal haunting and deeply moving beauty. The world might be spiraling into despair, but Jefre Cantu-Ledesma has brought us a record that isnt afraid to share the love. All thats left to do is drown in it." - Type.

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

The two have tapped into an aspect of nonsensical nihilism that makes Jad Fairs early recordings so alluring, but have forgone his obsession with cartoon horror and monster movies in favor of Faces of Death I thru VI.

Title: Sintetizzatrice
Format: LP
Label: Spectrum Spools
Country: USA
Price: $21.00
"Sintetizzatrice is the first recorded document of the collaboration between veteran DJ and producer Donato Dozzy and female vocalist Anna Caragnano. Through his solo work, and in his collaboration with Giuseppe Tilleci (Neel) as Voices from the Lake, Dozzy has achieved some of the most remarkable vistas contemporary electronic music has seen since the turn of this century. By removing himself from his areas of mastery to shift his focus on the voice, he has achieved a new peak with Sintetizzatrice. Over nine tracks, Dozzy works exclusively with the voice of Rome-based vocalist Anna Caragnano, with no other instruments. Heavy layering and effects processes are used to display an astoundingly versatile voice-centric vocabulary. Rarely can a record morph from R&B to kosmische, through traditional Italian folk music, to Fluxus styles and traditional chamber choir with no additional instrumentation. Just a singular, beautiful voice. The results are simply phenomenal. With the opening, "Introduzione," an immeasurable cosmic weight arrives and remains through the duration of the album. "Star Cloud" ascends with melancholy extended drones that evaporate concepts like time and being, rendering basic human perceptions void all the way through "Parallelo." "Parola" dances around the stereo field with dazing rhythms and melodies, while "Festa (A Mottola)" is an homage to the traditional music found in the rural region where, coincidentally, both Dozzys mother and Caragnano were born and raised. The albums closing pieces "Love Without Sound" and "Conclusione" hit hard in a way to which no words can do justice. By fearlessly entering uncharted territories, Dozzy and Caragnano have made a collaboration which is truly experimental. Sintetizzatrice is a grand debut for Anna Caragnano and a fantastic twist for Donato Dozzy. Produced and mixed by Dozzy at Alaska Studio, Rome, in 2014. Mastered by Giuseppe Tilleci at EnissLab Studio, Rome. Transferred to tape by Pietro Micioni, Angelo Compagnoni, and Massimo Zuccaroli at Village Studio, Rome. Cut by Christoph Grote-Beverborg at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin. Front cover painting by Angela Scaramuzzi. Cover design by Koto Hirai." - Spectrum Spools.

Title: Nova Musicha No. 6: Four Principles on Ireland and Other Pieces (1974)
Format: LP
Label: Mirumir
Country: Italy
Price: $28.00
"Having worked closely with Karlheinz Stockhausen during the late 1950s, the Irish-born Cornelius Cardew became a major figure on the European avant-garde music scene over the following decade. However, by the early 1970s Cardew had become deeply involved in the international communist movement, which created a growing rift between himself and his colleagues (particularly after his book Stockhausen Serves Imperialism was published in 1974). As Cardews politics changed, so did his music, which began drawing more and more from the populist roots of folk music. On this LP Cardew proposes a series of compositions based on the revolutionary songs of different countries (i.e. the Irish Rebellion of 1798, the Islamic Rebellion of 1937, the uprisings in West Berlin in the early seventies). It is perhaps not surprising that Cardews new music found a home in Italy of the 1970s (this LP was originally released on the Italian Cramps label), as the Italian Communist Party was extremely strong during this era. 180 gram vinyl reissue. Pocket gatefold LP with printed inner sleeve." -Mirumir.

Title: Treatise
Format: LP
Label: Planam
Country: Italy
Price: $29.00
"Cornelius Cardews opus magnus Treatise is a 193-page graphic score written between 1963 and 1967 while he was performing with the improvisation group AMM. The scores graphic notation, with its intricately devised graphic lines, shapes and symbols, was intended to question the limits of compositional practice. Decisions concerning pitch, timbre and duration, along with the choice of instruments and the number of performers, are left entirely to the discretion of those willing to devise the rules and means for its performance. This realisation of 4 pages from Treatise by Keith Rowe (tabletop guitar) and Oren Ambarchi (guitar), possibly the most powerful ever achieved, was recorded live at Bimhuis in Amsterdam on Feb 8th 2009. Rowe and Ambarchi use the guitar as a point of departure for completely new techniques and sound environments. Already in the 1960s Rowe made a radical departure from traditional jazz, redefining the guitar in the British collective AMM. He prefers to lay the instrument on the table to manipulate its sound with springs, fans, office appliances and electronics. Ambarchi, also in Sunn O))), Menstruation Sisters and Burial Chamber Trio, predominantly mould guitar sounds into dark sonic patterns. Cornelius Cardew might be considered the most relevant contemporary composer from Great Britain. In the end of the 1950s Karlheinz Stockhausen was very impressed by Cardews abilities as a musician and his knowledge of new music and invited him to participate to the historical Kontrefestival concerts in Cologne (an important pre-fluxus event). In 1960 Cardew was at Darmstadt were he met John Cage, David Tudor and among others Walter Marchetti. Cages experimental techniques were very inspiring for Cardew who, in 1969 founded the Scratch Orchestra, a large, rotating group of professional and amateur performers committed to collective experimentation which might be considered as one of the most convincing collective experiments in the history of 20th century avant-garde culture. Edition limited to 300 copies, reproducing, on the sleeve and the innersleeve, the 4 pages from Treatise performed by Rowe-Ambarchi." -Planam

Price: $25.00
"Recorded in 2002 by American contemporary composer and pianist, Frederic Rzewski, We Sing For The Future & Thalmann Variations are two compositions from English composer Cornelius Cardews Marxist-influenced Peoples Liberation Music period. Rzewski came to prominence in the mid-sixties in Rome as a founding member of the MEV (Musica Elettronica Viva) improvisation group (along with Alvin Curran and Richard Teitelbaum), which shared a vision with groups like Cornelius Cardews Scratch Orchestra of the same period. However, like Cardew, in the 1970s Rzewski also became interested in Communism and the power of music to express the will of the people, so it is fitting that Rzewski should chose to revisit these two compositions. 1974s Thalmann Variations was written to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the death of Ernst Thalmann, the Secretary General of the German Communist Party, and is based on a popular German Workers Movement song (1934s Thalmann Song), while We Sing For the Future is a solo piano piece meant to convey the struggle of young people in an imperialist world. It was written in 1981, the year Cardew - who by this time was an active member of the Communist Party - was mysteriously killed in a hit and run accident in London." -Doxy.

“Much of the discussion around unmanned aerial vehicles (drones) is directed toward its capabilities of surveillance and attack. However for those living in areas of conflict, it is the engine sound of the drones that has devastating psychological effects. Military drones fly at high altitudes and are more easily heard than seen. Even the origin of the word "drone" is rooted in sound, and comes from the sound of the male honeybee. The sound of drones in areas of conflict creates soundscapes of terror that can go on for many hours. The buzzing of the engines has generated nicknames like "zanana" in Palestine and "bangana" in Pakistan. A Study into 21st Century Drone Acoustics is an auditive investigation by composer Gonçalo F. Cardoso (Discrepant) and designer Ruben Pater (Drone Survival Guide). What kind engines are drones equipped with? What do they sound like? What are the psychological effects of the sounds in areas of conflict? Side A features field recordings of 17 drone types, ranging from small consumer drones to large military drones. The B-side presents a soundscape by Cardoso, inspired by the abusive and destructive power or drone technology. The composition focuses on the conceptual (sound) life and death of an aerial drone machine in the 21st century. The project is intended for use in installation in various museums and festivals. The sounds are available for free at droneacoustics.org. Concept by Gonçalo F. Cardoso and Ruben Pater. B-side composition written and composed by Gonçalo F. Cardoso. Voice by Emmet ODonnell.

Drawing on a recorded history of 20 years of recollected memories, this is one final journey and study into recreating the progression of dementia through sound. As the first in the series - and despite its typically frayed loop construction, this volume is the most lucid - subsequent instalments will continue to move into faded obscurity and material erosion. Mastered and cut by Andreas Lupo Lubich. Artwork by Ivan Seal." - History Always Favours the Winner.

Title: Explore and Yellow Power
Format: Double LP
Label: Medical
Country: USA
Price: $24.00
"Tony Carey needs no introduction, but for the uninitiated, he is a keyboard whiz originally from California. He is clearly most famous for his work as keyboardist in the 1970s band Rainbow (alongside Ritchie Blackmore and Ronnie James Dio) up to 1977. He then embarked on a solo career with multiple charting records under his own name. In the mid-late 1970s, he took up residence in Germany and began working in Peter Haukes studio. Carey embarked on a period of intense experimentation and mastery of various studio equipment, songwriting, and the like. Influenced by what Tony referred to as euro-electronica, the product of these enlightening sessions became Explorer, No Human, TCP, Heaven, and Yellow Power. Though both LPs have similar tracks, the overall mixes and feel of the two LPs are vastly different. Instrumental and very catchy, Explorer is more stripped down almost proto-techno meets synthed out Italo disco while Yellow Power has a more polished, well-rounded and produced sound with a different array of instrumentation and alteration in mood. Released in a sturdy gatefold jacket with montaged new artwork on the front and back but preserved original covers in the inside of the gatefold, this is a gorgeous reissue. Released on double colored 160 gram vinyl (LP1 is green and LP2 is baby blue) in limited edition of 1000 hand-numbered copies. Release also includes a special bonus insert with a retrospective and interview by Dave Segal. Fans of proto-techno, early synth-based disco, and left-field wave/electronica will need this gem in their collection." -Medical.

Title: All Moments
Format: LP
Label: NNA Tapes
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"NNA is proud to present our 50th release, Matt Carlsons All Moments long-playing record. Where 2011s Particle Language LP acted as a study in texture and density within experimental synthesizer music, All Moments finds Carlson engaging with the more traditional musical materials of melody, harmony, and rhythm, calling to mind his work as one half of Portland, OR duo Golden Retriever. The pieces on this record range from shorter pop études to longer, more open improvisatory synth studies, retaining a sense of playfulness and expressiveness within a highly focused and calculated framework. Recorded to four-track cassette and primarily hand-played with very little-to-no auto arpeggiation, All Moments captures an often-overlooked warmth and human quality in electronic music, emphasized further by Carlsons use of modal and tonal vocal studies, electronically transformed by his use of the vocoder. The result is a well-rounded collection of colorful, exuberant electronic music." - NNA Tapes. Full-color printed innersleeve.

“Aakash marks the debut recording of the Portland, Oregon-based trio of Matt Carlson (Golden Retriever), Michael Stirling (a disciple of the late Hindustani master Pandit Pran Nath and a student of Terry Riley), and Doug Theriault. Derived from live improvisational performances, the record finds Carlsons rich analog synthesizers joined by real-time processing of Stirlings lilting voice and Theriaults idiosyncratic guitar work and electronics. Dipping into a kind of liminal void, Aakash isnt just cosmic raga. Its a subtle journey; microvisions of inner terrain. Includes download code.” - Root Strata.

"Brand new split of heavy freakiness from one of our favorite local bands CARLTON MELTON teamed up here with new-to-us bizarre shamanistic cult collective QUMRAN ORPHICS. The Melton side is two 10-minute slabs, the first, "March Of The Cicadas," sounds exactly like the title implies, a slowmotion dirge over martial rhythms with buzzing electronic hisses and stratospheric guitar leads. The closer, "Murder Ridge" is a noirish Bardo Pond-like spiral of burning sonic embers and sustained decay. The Qumran Orphics side is a stranger beast altogether. Recorded from a live set at the Blank Club in San Jose, Qumran Orphics is led by KFJC DJ CY THOTH (host of the show Firebunker, that plays lots of our favorite metal and experimental sounds), backed by an array of simmering guitars and shifting droning electronics. Like a strange and unfurling Crowleian ritual, Cy Thoth croakingly intones bizarre utterances one might hear in an H.P. Lovecraft story. Its a wild and charged performance.

Title: Sleep on Mirrors - The 1981-1985 Tapes
Format: LP
Label: Mannequin
Country: Germany
Price: $21.00
“As earlier compilations of "danza meccanica" have made clear, Italy gave birth to a disproportionate number of synthpop, new wave, and electronic acts in the 1980s. Mannequin goes deeper into the Italian new wave with a killer ten-track selection of Carmody. Taking their name from Robert Sheckleys 1968 science fiction novel Dimension of Miracles, Carmody came from Torino, alongside contemporaries Monuments and Chromagain. They began as the duo of Alberto Ramella and Andrea Lesmo before expanding to a trio, with Max Casacci on guitar. They recorded from 1981 to 1985 and issued three incredibly rare demo tapes. Sleep on Mirrors compiles the best tracks from those tapes, highlighting some of the most peculiar minimal synth music to come out of Italy in the 1980s. Mastered by Rude 66. Graphic design by Alessandro Adriani. Edition of 400.” - Mannequin.

"Long-deleted Guerssen title now repressed in a limited deluxe version, with a thick carton cover and pressed on 180 gram vinyl. Germany, 1978. Absolutely early 70s-sounding progressive and psychedelic folk-rock masterpiece of the first order. Entirely sung in English by an incredibly young female vocalist, Beate Krause, only 16 years-old! Long tracks with excellent, killer acid guitar solos, and Moog. If you like groups like Mellow Candle or Pentangle, theres no doubt you need to purchase this one fast. Often praised as "the best prog-folk record ever," this is an absolute classic of the genre. Besides that, the original label pressed only 200 copies of the LP, so imagine how hard it is to find this now. So here you have a new vinyl reissue of this wonderful record, licensed by the band, with killer, remastered sound and an insert with photos and liner notes in a limited edition of 700 copies." -Guerssen.

Tags like industrial, minimal synth or proto-techno cant really do justice to the richly cinematic sound-world that Caroline Kaye Walters, aka Caroline K, describes as "from the sustained ambient tension of sidelong opener The Happening World to the future-primitive rhythms and stately piano flourishes of Animal Lattice, and the melancholic, deep-frozen synth sequences of Chearth." Fans of Wendy Carloss A Clockwork Orange, Chris Carters The Space Between, and early Detroit techno should pay special attention, but this searching, future-proof masterpiece demands to be heard by all." - Blackest Ever Black.

Title: Black Swallow & Other Songs

Price: $19.00
"In the last decade or so, Richard Skelton has cemented his place as one of experimental musics most favored sons. Through a multitude of projects (under his own name and otherwise) and his own Sustain Release label, there has been an absolute treasure trove of music to sink your teeth into. The first project of Skeltons that the Digitalis label-head heard back in 2005 was Carousell (and the lovely A Dead Bridges Into Dust album) so it felt poetic to reissue the Carousell album, Black Swallow & Other Songs. Originally issued on Sustain Release in the criminally low run of 100 CDs, Black Swallow & Other Songs is a soft and sparse exercise in understated melodies. This is music rich in texture and heavy on the emotional impact it makes. The nine minute "Artery" opens the album and slowly coalesces from a fractured whisper to leave its marks on your skin. Blurry violin notes stretch to the breaking point while Skelton loosely strums and plucks his guitar into a warm, aural embrace. The title track continues with this theme, but adds a heavy dose of nostalgic melancholy to proceedings. Its like you have to look back, accept things and head down the winding path to a new future. On the closing suite, "Owl Lanterns" and "The Clearing," we get a full dose of hopefulness. A childs laughter flickers by while the bowed strings add an unfaltering lightness. Skeltons guitar plucks are floating on clouds, passing by with a buoyant spirit. As Autumn Grieves wordless vocals bring everything to a close there is nowhere else to go but up. Her voice is the exclamation mark, powerful and restrained as it leads the minimal bowed & plucked strings to rest. Black Swallow & Other Songs is a potent mix of darkness and light, expertly crafted by one of the UKs premier composers. Vinyl cut at Dubplates & Mastering in Berlin. Limited to 700 copies only for the world." -Digitalis

Price: $40.00
"Key figure in Mexican conceptual art, Ulises Carrión was an artist, editor, curator, and theorist of the post-1960s international artistic avant-garde. Dear Reader. Dont Read, an A4-size, 272-page book with CD, issued in collaboration with the Museum Reina Sofia in Madrid within the context of Carrion large retrospective, is focused on Ulises Carrións personal and groundbreaking approach, managing to illustrate all aspects of his artistic and intellectual work. This includes books, magazines, videos, films, sound pieces, mail art, public projects, and performances, along with Carrións initiatives as curator, editor, distributor, lecturer, archivist, art theorist, and writer. It is a significant body of original work structured to place a spotlight on every facet of his production. Without losing sight of the unclassifiable nature of his oeuvre, this book emphasizes Ulises Carrións constant search for new cultural strategies and the extent to which his projects were determined by two fundamental themes: structure and language. These represent artistic guidelines influenced by a literary education, which he invariably struggled against, and are pervasive in his work. This duality corresponds to the exhibition title Dear Reader. Dont Read which illustrates his ambiguous relation to literature, a recurring theme in his work. Due to his interest in new art forms and innovative trends, Carrión actively participated in most of the artistic disciplines of his time. He co-founded the independent artist-run space In-Out Center in Amsterdam and founded the legendary bookshop-gallery Other Books and So (1975-79), the first of its kind dedicated to the presentation, production, and distribution of publications that were no longer literary texts nor about art, but rather books that were art or, as Carrión himself called them, "non-books, anti-books, pseudo books, quasi books, concrete books, visual books, conceptual books, structural books, project books, statement books, instruction books". Along with his artistic activities, Ulises Carrión developed a wide range of theoretical work having a great influence on young visual artists. It is fascinating to see that Ulises Carrións theories are seemingly precursors to more recent art theories of the twenty-first-century digital world. During his most creative artistic period, he participated in the international mail art network which Carrión considered a kind of guerilla strategy." - Alga Marghen.

His many initiatives and projects bear witness to his boundless obsessions with communication and circulation of works and ideas as a cultural strategy. This LP includes Hamlet for Two Voices (1977) in which two voices read out the names of the characters in the Shakespearean play as they appear in the script, audibly representing the structure of the roles the characters perform. Poema (1977) orally represents the structure and spatial characteristics of a poem, by listing all its structural elements: words, paragraphs and verses, etc. The LP also includes Aritmetica, Three Spanish Pieces, and First Spanish Lesson, as well as the legendary 45 Revoluciones por Minuto, the grooviest track ever created within the context of conceptual art. All pieces, recorded at the Instituut voor Sonologie in Utrecht between September and October 1977, have in common their refusal of discursiveness. They are not meant to be true or beautiful. Each piece is a series of vocal units that unfolds according to simple rules. Their beginning and end are arbitrary: they could go on infinitely. They should go on. They go on.

Title: Laid Back
Format: CD
Label: EM
Country: Japan
Price: $21.00
"Laid Back by Corky Carroll & Friends is a warm-hued snapshot of the musical life of one segment of the American surfing world, circa 1971. This album, the first ever recorded by true surfers, captures the relaxed, truly laid back feeling of the surfing life. The album features none of the tropes of "surf music": no reverb, no sugary vocal harmonies. Simply recorded with warm fidelity, what we hear is pro-surfer Corky Carroll and his surfer pals in various combinations delivering songs and instrumental pieces, perfectly capturing the sultry seaside atmosphere and their idyllic oceanic lives. All the performers were, in Corkys words, "real surfers" (unlike the Beach Boys), well-recorded in casual circumstances in California in 1971. Beginning (and closing) with Hawaii-born master board-maker Raymond Pattersons joyful slack-key guitar fantasias, the album features the famed Denny Aarberg on guitar (with Kathy Dragon of the legendary Dragon family), the articulate folk picking of David Lyons, Al Oakies affable acoustic blues (with some fine harmonica), and the folky guitar playing of Carroll himself. A blend of vocal and instrumental pieces, the album is largely acoustic, and even the two tracks with electric instruments (from the band Hana, with electric pianist Jon Close, guitarists Dave Rullo and Herb Torrens, and bassist Dave Shoffner, surfers all) do not break the serenity of the calm, Pacific mood. Laid Back was Carrolls first recording, released independently on Rural Records (jointly run by Carroll and Dennis Dragon) while Carroll was still surfing professionally. Dragon, a skilled engineer, and Carroll "travelled up and down the California coast with (Dragons) mobile recording setup and recorded this music in these peoples living rooms and garages." You can feel the ocean nearby. Laid Back, a long-prized treasure, is an oceanic balm retrieved from the waves of time and offered to all by EM Records. Housed in a cardboard sleeve jacket plus an insert with liner notes written by Corky Carroll." -EM

Carsons work can be as complex as the person whos creating it. Here we have 2 distinct side long pieces. Side A depicts a battle between organic clang/scrape and piercing ruined electronics. Each faction ponies up with total trance like, but not very calming, moves. By the end youll have just walked through a weird fucking fight, and time will not really matter anymore. And thats only side A. Side B removes the organics and goes straight for the brain with sharp shocks and tones. Its not harsh, its not calming, its not drone...its just total deep fried electronics.

"Lunar Eclipse was culled from over 30 hours of recordings taking place, inadvertently, on the equinox, lunar eclipse and winter solstice of 2004.The duo of Tom Carter (Charalambides) and Robert Horton sound as if they are channeling the natural power of these significant calender days into the music. They both noticed something special was happening during the initial recording session when they looked at a clock and realised that theyd been playing for over 5 hours. Throughout the album Carter slowly plays louder and more powerfully than usual over drone-master Robert Hortons organic & electronic chimes, drones, jangles, dangles and splendor. The result is a vast, expansive sound cavern full of hidden melody, slow drones, textured tribal gong and hidden mystic rhythm." - Important.

"Originally recorded between 1974 and 1978 at Industrial Records studio in London, The Space Between was first released as a 90-minute cassette in 1980 on Throbbing Gristles Industrial Records label. It wasnt until 1991 that it was again released by Mute Records on CD. For those who may not know, Chris Carter is one of the founding members of Throbbing Gristle, partners with Cosey Fanni Tutti (knows as Carter-Tutti and formerly recording as Chris & Cosey) who has been working with sound for over 40 years. Although tracks from The Space Between have appeared on numerous compilations since its release, the album has never been available on vinyl -- until now. This new vinyl edition on Optimo Music, now retitled The Spaces Between, doesnt include all the tracks on the original album but has been enhanced and remastered from the original two-track master tapes and has new cover artwork especially for this release. JD Twitch has this to say about the release: "The original release featured fifteen tracks. As I wanted to have a reasonably loud vinyl pressing, I have picked my favorites to appear here (not an easy task to narrow it down). In addition, there is a bonus track Climbing which was recorded around the same time that was released by Coils Geoff Ruston on his Men With Deadly Dreams cassette in 1981. One of the first-ever recordings to use an 808 drum machine, it still sounds as if it is from tomorrow. In my opinion, these are some of the key recordings in the history of electronic music. They were made using very basic equipment at a time when there was no blueprint for what electronic music could and should be. There is a beauty, an emotion and an imagination present here that is lacking in a lot of modern machine music. This music is as vital and wondrous today as it was four decades ago."- Optimo.

Format: 12"/Chapbook
Label: Drawing Room
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Her first release on Drawing Room Records, the EP, comprised of two smoldering sidelong tracks, titled "Survival" and "Salvation", finds Carter furthering her expansive work in song.  The compositions are built with transfixing electric slide-guitar, dancing tambourine, shivering bells and sparse, foreboding effects. "Survival" moves from invocation to drowsy reverie to harrowing possession, punctuated by a major spoken discourse on the complicity of the artist. "Salvation", a striking recitation of the ill-effects of this societys insufficient symbols, moves from lush song-chant to syllable stripped bare, captured in time. The chapbook is equal parts prose poem and critical inquiry, presenting an interrogation of the artists existential relevance in the 21st century. Reminiscent of work on Carters Many Breaths imprint (Trickster Who Is Like God, Imaginee, Texas Modern Exorcism), the Character Study EP represents the first widely available release documenting six years of development within Christinas unique voice/sound/text aesthetic.  In addition, both the EP and the chapbook sleeves were elegantly printed bymJeff Mueller of Dexterity Press.   Character Study is an essential release in this peerless artists catalog." - Drawing Room.

Title: LEtoile de Mer
Format: LP
Label: Emerald Cocoon
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Stark and intimate even within a discography not lacking in stark intimacy, Letoile de Mer was Christina Carters first recorded foray outside of her work with Tom Carter as part of the legendary Charalambides. Recorded in 2000 and originally released as a limited cassette on the notorious Freedom From label, Letoile de Mer presents the two core elements of Christinas sound as atomized statements: unaccompanied electric guitar on side A, unaccompanied vocals on side B. These atomized statements are pared down further still – single notes and unmoored vocal phrases hanging lonely in the jet black vinyl darkness. Letoile de Mers solo guitar side presents two takes of a live score to Man Rays dreamlike 1928 surrealist film of the same name. Unlike the film, the music here is severely in focus: carefully placed single notes hang in a space made so tense by expectation that the air feels like glass under pressure. Buckling under the weight of their own naked intensity and the films obscure ritual logic both takes end with a sudden descent into a seasick pitch-shifted blur... The B side presents seven etude-like songs recorded in an Austin hallway. Inspired by solo saxophone exercises Christina listens “to the sound of the voice to find my voice more clearly as entirely my own”. Unlike her later solo vocal works on Many Breaths Press (Masque Femine, A Blossom Fell, I Am All The Same Song), these pieces are meditations on sound rather than words. Tongue and throat animate the air, unconstrained by lyrical concerns, vocal shapes are carved, probed, turned over, discarded... Like all Christinas work these solo vocal meditations hold up a mirror to problematic dualities: self/other, conscious/unconscious, freedom/control...." - Emerald Cocoon.

Title: Masque Femine

“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.

Title: Original Darkness
Format: CD
Label: Kranky
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Christina Carter has a gift. In a world where most people shy away from the truth, from honesty in emotion, Christina has the strength to address those feelings head on through her music. Within the songs of Original Darkness, she confronts loneliness, self doubt, inadequacy and desire. She bares these emotions in a sometimes tender, sometimes forceful, sometimes pleading voice, a voice in which you can hear her vulnerability, her trepidation. Christinas words, and the mournful sound of them, stirs a melancholy that is supported and framed by her gently plucked guitar notes, notes that echo the sadness in the world she sings of, as well as the words she sings. These 10 new songs are effective at painting pictures, exposing the underbelly of what we all really think but most will not say, of what we all really feel but push away. With the addition of gentle bells and occasional keyboards, Christina reminds us of what it means to be honestly human. The latest album from the longtime Charalambides mainstay follows her Electrice album from late 2006 on kranky as well as a split album with Pocahaunted from early in 2008." -Kranky

Built around heavily distorted piano backed with bass, drums, and touches of guitar and sitar, its six tracks are frequently dreamy and hypnotic (reflecting Carters belief that "repetitive music radiates an unusual ethereal depth"), but can also be unnervingly intense. Recorded in Bristol, England, in 1978-79, it was pressed in a tiny run aimed at generating major label interest; when that failed to materialize, Carter left music behind.

Null meets Franco Falsini excursionary instrumentalism has taken on an increased luminosity, due in no small part to some unexpected time spent at a certain house on the borderland. In his own words: "Information-inscribed ribbons unravel from a spool spinning into relaxed entropy. Floating smoke-scrap phrases dissolve before the awakening namer; whispers of causation refute a dozen irreal plot lines, showering text onto re-emergent reality as a deeper narrative retreats to a place hidden from scrutiny. I am awake, and you are here with me. Holding our hands before our eyes we stare skyward, light leaking through our fingers, rays shift and rearrange as we flex our fingers. The beams emanate from within, not without; the light pours out of our eyes, animating all we see, bearing the unbearable heat in us. These memories intertwine with reality in a way thats impossible to parse. One night not so long after my return, I attempted to transcribe them in the only sensical way, via degenerating melodic and harmonic arcs, free of the inevitable collapse of language. These recordings are the result." The recordings he speaks of comprise Numinal Entry, the second LP released by Halatern, etc. The sounds contained therein offer a glimpse of something slightly outside of living experience, something slowly holy, and something eternal.

Tom Carter is a guitar player best known for his work with acclaimed psych-drone iconoclasts Charalambides. Since 2000, however, he has become increasingly active as not only a solo artist but as a collaborator. He has performed with improvising musicians as diverse as Thurston Moore, Jandek, Tetuzi Akiyama, Matt Valentine, and many others, as well as being a key member in groups like Badgerlore (with Ben Chasny of Six Organs of Admittance), Friday Group, Mudsuckers (with Robert Horton and the Yellow Swans), and Zaika (with Marcia Bassett of the Double Leopards and Hototogisu). Carters solo work covers a lot of territory, but latter-day sightings show him to be concentrating on looped guitar drones of immensely stacked beauty, with heaps of psychedelic melodic content missing from the repertoires of many noise and drone bands.

Title: Four Infernal Rivers
Format: Double LP
Label: MIE
Country: UK
Price: $31.00
"Tom Carter and Pat Murano, two figures with decades of history behind them, offer Four Infernal Rivers, their new double long player. Four Infernal Rivers illuminates their interlocking styles in a light that blurs their individual identities. The music breathes its own life, and consistently eschews the normal meanings of its own potential descriptors. To think and act intuitively across 80 minutes in real time, without falling into boring or wasteful modes, should be taken as a remarkable accomplishment. The album title is as descriptive as it is suggestive. Four is the number of tracks. Easy. Infernal. Its a harder one to parse out, harder still to live up to, yet the records hellish qualities come from the fact that it seems like it could never end. Its fiendishness stems from a tone which is consistently ominous and ever-portending. Rivers is spot-on. Close your eyes, draw up an image of a river, and the music pulls instantly into focus. Its not so much a soundtrack to a film or a scene, but rather an auditory evocation of something that is ever-present. To invoke water is to invoke the most crucial ingredient of life (insofar as we describe it) on this planet. A river is one and many things, an aspect of a system larger than itself, full of majesty and terror. One need only think of the rivers of Herzogs Aguirre or Fitzcarraldo, of Conrads Heart of Darkness or Ballards The Day of Creation, to understand the gist of what is being presented. The rivers forged by the duo are menacing and imposing, full of risk and danger. In an age when the entire aim of underground artists seems so geared towards either mimicking or revolting directly against the tides of mainstream culture, it is nigh-impossible to know where to turn. If this record has anything to say about it, it might be that the most valid instances of possibility are to be found in adhering to no preconceived method, in swimming with a current of ones own making. It sways between an understanding of musical history and a disregard for its confines. There is interplay that doesnt apologize for or attempt to live up to anything. It is music born of elements that have always existed and still cannot be grasped. Both spacious and immediate, moments exist either to be seized or to be let go. What might in another setting play out as a tension between dissonance and melody here lives entirely outside of those concerns. There is comfort and compatibility in this music, a sense that neither player would ever step on the others toes, while still feeling the freedom to explore whichever tributary they might come across. Ideal traveling companions, then. Its after the end of the world, dont you know that yet? June Tyson asked long ago. Some of us do and some of us dont. Those of us who arent quite sure make records like this." --Matt Krefting, Easthampton, MA, April, 2014.

"Charalambides Tom Carter and Robert Horton have become close collaborators over the past few years, appearing in a handful of projects together from Kyrgyz (w/ Jewelled Antler-ites Loren Chasse and Christine Boepple) to Mudsuckers (w/ D. Yellow Swans). But when they are stripped back to a duo, the sonic onslaught is just as dense and impressive. Steeljaguar Rocket is the second album, following-up Lunar Eclipse on Important Records. Horton again acts as the puppetmaster, pulling the strings to move each sound into its right place. Expansive improvisations and full-on psychedelic freakouts intermingle, creating a cosmic web of enchanted debris. Fiddler extraordinaire Hal Huges adds exponentially to the dynamics at work with his marvelous playing on the title track. The strained violin notes whisk the listener away to the dirt-soaked alleys of Damascus. Its a hypnotic journey through jewel-encrusted foreign lands, like a solo flight to sun. Everything is not peaceful on Steeljaguar Rocket, however. Digging further into the cataclysm finds Carter & Horton turning up the volume knobs and cranking out wailing solos on top of a bed of heavy drones and cacaphonic drums. Like Hortons Future Ears project, its equal parts noise, free jazz, and fractured folk bliss. There is no stone unturned on Steeljaguar Rocket, and just as it feels as though it will collapse in on itself, Carter & Horton bring everything back down to earth, ready to begin again." - Digitalis.

Cartwright -- longtime leader of Curlew, and owner of a musical c.v. which includes Ornette Coleman, Half Japanese, Alex Chilton and Loren Mazzacane -- can be restlessly melodic or jaggedly guttural on the reeds, although his bedrock lyricism is never far from the surface. Serus playing is a trompe loreille marriage of forward motion and suspended stasis; over the past decade, hes performed with Milo Fine, Paul Metzger and Evan Parker, among others. From the anthemic opening of Titus to the miniature coda of I Think Eudora Knows, Rag is a lively dialogue between two masters of their craft.

Title: Its Time For Tristram Cary
Format: CD
Label: Trunk
Country: UK
Price: $16.00
"Subtitled: Works For Film, Television, Exhibition & Sculpture. The Trunk label presents one of the most important, innovative, influential and almost-forgotten artists of all time, British/Australian electroacoustic composer, Tristram Cary. Without Tristrams inventions and musical experiments, Dr. Who would sound very different. Wed have no VCS3 synthesizers, no Brian Eno, no crazy electronics for Pink Floyd, etc. This is a retrospective of the composers work, including some of his unreleased experimental music as well. The third son of famed novelist Joyce Cary, he had a keen interest in music, science and electronics. He studied at Trinity College and served as a radar operator in the Royal Navy as war broke out. After the war, he began building an electronic music studio (the first of its kind in the UK), experimenting with discarded military equipment. By 1954, he was earning a living as a composer, and in 1955 got the job of writing all the music for a new Ealing movie, The Ladykillers. He worked for the BBC on many occasions, most infamously creating the music and otherworldly effects for the Dr. Who Daleks seven part series in 1963. In 1967, he founded the Royal College Of Music Electronic Studio, wrote the groundbreaking music for Hammers Quatermass And The Pit, and in 1969 along with Peter Zinovieff and David Cockerell founded EMS (Electronic Music Studios), the UKs first ever synthesizer company. Their first major products included the VCS3 synthesizer, the suitcase Synthi and the Delaware, equipment that became the modern musical tools of their times. On demonstration tour in Australia he was offered further work, and moved to Adelaide in 1974 where he worked at the University under a number of different musical titles. He left in 1986 and returned to composing, and in 1991 received the Medal Of The Order Of Australia for services to Australian music. He carried on developing sound, consulting and composing for the rest of his life. This is the first time much of Tristram Carys musical output has been issued, and it includes his music made for sculpture, for the 1969 Expo, compositions he made for Olivetti using their office equipment and a choir, electronics he devised for Casino Royale, classical music he produced for documentaries and curious effects he developed for films about money and design. It shows he was equally comfortable working in classical compositions, with electronics or working in a concrète style." - Trunk.

With Peter Zinovieff and David Cockerell he founded Electronic Music Studios (London) Ltd which created the first portable synthesizer, the VCS3 (1969) and was then involved in production of such distinctive EMS products. About the performers: Vincent Epplay is a visual and sound artist who also composed music for films. His main purpose is to create situations for listening by staging sound and interrogating its mode of distribution and reception. Samon Takahashi is a visual and sound artist based in Paris, France. His practice is devoted to visual art, sound art and music. His work is so-called transdisciplinary using all types of media. His main interests or obsessions concern language, means of communication, pseudo science, architecture, isolated landscapes and classification.

Title: Arte Moderna
Format: LP
Label: Cacophonic
Country: UK
Price: $26.00
"Filed neatly and undisturbed within the micro-genre of 1970s Italian artsploitation, amongst films soundtracks such as Girl With The Crystal Plumage, A Quiet Place In The Country and House With The Laughing Windows, this obscure library LP is one of the few fully formed concept albums from the recently reappraised discography of Romes most versatile and adventurous female production music composer Daniela Casa. Once destined for a shelf life within the storage rooms of defunct TV studios and educational facilities, Danielas previously strictly commercially unavailable music has in recent years been given new focus at the hands of open-minded disc detectives and sonic salvage hunters earning Casas distinctive feminine take on experimental instrumental mood and movie compositions a place next to her widely respected masculine counterparts such as Alessandro Alessandroni, AR Luciani, Pierro Umiliani, Morricone and Nicolai. Sharing tight studio space and strict syndication schedules with all of the aforementioned artists (under commission from Romano Di Baris fervently independent Flipper music factory) Daniela Casa embraced a liberating wind change in affordable music technology which opened doors for uninhabited solo compositions in home studios, taking advantage of communal recording consoles and domestic synthesizers which nurtured a lesser-documented creative family tree (or rather secret society) and paved the way for individualistic projects from the likes of Magnetic Systems Fabio Frizzi and Goblins Claudio Simonetti. Here, on this repress of the impossibly rare, one-time subscription-only album, Arte Moderna, we find Daniela at her versatile best, creating a wide thematic suite (based on paintings and sculptures in an abstract art gallery) for which she would deploy mostly organic and acoustic instruments to construct a set of unorthodox compositions straddling avant garde, free jazz and Giallo tension (with some brief moments of brooding electronics and italian pop). Veering from her stylistic pop interests (which clearly included a fondness for the music of Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin) Casas Arte Moderna saw her adopt a less era-specific approach, combining neo-classical elements and piano improvisations akin to the likes of Frances Francois Tusques or Burton Greene, or Americas Mal Waldron without compromising her strong narrative personality. Finders Keepers Records now shine new light on these sonic sculptures and provide a fresh context where educated music listeners are ready to fill the gaps between Delia Derbyshire, Ennio Morricone, Suzanne Ciani and Harry Partch." - Cacophonic.

"In an alternate universe, the Rome-born female synthesist Daniela Casa would be a household name. A genuine pioneer of experimental pop music, abstract electronics, giallo jazz, and even heavy drone rock jams, her elusive and infectious music joins the dots and loops between other Italian female electronic composers such as Giulia De Mutiis (later Giulia Alessandroni), Doris Norton and Suzanne Ciani, while retaining one of the most individualistic and diverse composing styles of an advanced mechanical musician regardless of their nationality or gender. This LP compiles, for the first time, a multifarious selection of previously commercially unavailable instrumental music composed at her home studio in the late 70s before her untimely death at the age of 42. Originally designed for use in radio, film, TV and other industry-specific applications, these seldom-heard selections combine ingenious homemade and hi-tech disciplines, providing scores for Italian thrillers, nature documentaries, educational projects, and commercial sound installations. Mastered from the vaults of the sought-after Deneb/Flirt/Canopo library labels (home to some of the rarest records by Fabio Frizzi, Giuliano "Raskovich" Sorgini, Gerardo Iacoucci, Alessandro "Braen" Alessandroni, amongst others) these rare tracks reveal Daniela Casa in her most fertile environment (composing as a young mother) in both a solo capacity and alongside incredible Italian session musicians, often sharing release schedules and track lists with her maverick maestro husband Remigio Ducross. These multi-layered musical images remain as vibrant and authentic today as they did 35 years ago. Close your eyes and unravel the Sovrapposizione Di Immagini. " - Finders Keepers.

Format: LP
Label: Hummingbird
Country: USA
Price: $32.00
Sealed original 1984 release. "Meditative crystal-glass drone masterwork - Considered one of the best private issue new age albums" said someone somewhere.. With Scott Cossu, Jami Sieber, T ao Chu-Shen.

“DAWN POEMS is an impression of that time of day from the stillness of first light, through the brightening of cloud to the rising of the sun. The first movement expresses the comfortable mystery of the early moments when one feels the inner and outer realms of being blended. This is the time when insight, emotion, and reflection are joined. Through the web of musical texture weaves the beautiful cello of Jami Sieber. The second movement represents the stirring of human awareness, with a song of prison ocarina and the greeting of the day as expressed by the sensitive and heart-felt marimba playing of Scott Cossu; a uniquely meditate use of this instrument. The third movement depicts the brilliance of the rising sun and the brightening day as evoked by the masterful ch in playing the T ao Chu-Shen. The ch in is perhaps the quietest and among the most ancient of the instruments, and the subtlety of its seven silk string tills the sky within the ear. The piece concludes with a lovely solo on h siao (Chinese bamboo flute) by Scott Cossu, enchanced by multiple echoes moving backward and forward in time, producing an impression of clouds dispersing in the brightening day.

CRYSTAL WAVES was produced entirely with the sound of tuned crystal glasses. Each glass was playing individually with meditative attention and recorded, grouped, and rerecorded with lengthy blending process. In order to attain a broad spectrum of sound from a simple source, tape speed, equalization and harmonic balance were hanged to produced sounds reminiscent of bass and cello, flutes and horns, organs, bells and gongs, and other sounds suggestive of electronic synthesis. Sometimes as many of the thirty glasses may be heard at once, each with its own pulsation and timbre, produced notes pulsate with organic subtlety and complexity. The result is at once relaxing and stimulating and physically felt. Within the context is a stream of melodic themes which develop and bridge the four movements. I strove to produce a musical work which uplifts the spirit by calming the mind and organically stimulating the subtler dimensions of physiology in a manner consonant with my own heart.” - David Casper.

Words, syllables, stories, sounds, psychology, music, etc., are no longer needed: advanced writing can do without intermediate elements. Modern writing is neither symbolic nor descriptive. Its purpose is the purpose of all modern art: to reduce necessity. The freedom achieved by writing (as a "medium") may perhaps become an inspiration (a "metaphor") of what could be achieved elsewhere (in the "reality"), independently and without imitation. Writing, perhaps the art more subdued to avidity and ambition, an instrument of subjection since it was invented by priests and legislators, has been the last of the arts to seek for its liberation. Writing itself created the worst of our servitudes that still rules and dominates the world: literality. Because without literality, any servitude to being of metaphorical and reflexive freedom would be impossible. Servitude exists and grows within the bureaucratic and technocratic literality which dominates the world with its laws, rules, and mechanisms. Freedom of comprehension, and therefore the liberation of writing, can be accomplished through the restoration of the metaphorical character of the so-called "reality", through the destruction of textual literality and the restoration of all the imaginary figures and persons of the psyche in front of the divination of the soul or the spirit. As proved by TLALAATALA, the liberation of writing must go through the elaboration of vacuous structures that should be perceived without being captured, without being fixed through numbers and signs. It goes through a writing where you can no longer state that "the written, written is", since it establishes an imaginary and metaphorical reflection of the vacuity and of the mutual relation of processes and phenomena. Comes in cardboard box with stamp; Includes the original-2001-press 400-page-creative-book with the same title; Edition of 80." - Alga Marghen.

Title: Spy In The House Of God
Format: LP
Label: Records of Gauhd
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"With his ever evolving voice, Nick Castro cuts to the murk of the ancient matter of the new class of acid folkies deeper and clearer than his contemporaries, showing a range and depth of understanding that would make John Renbourn and Anne Briggs proud. Unlike his contemporaries, his songs avoid indie masquerade and hidden pretension, resulting in a more finely tuned, textured approach, framed by a complete understanding of the musical worlds in which this young musician explores. Castros ability to play a variety of folk instruments with the know how and invested interest of a Robin Williamson is impressive, helping to fully construct a musical adventure that works effortlessly to include the listener as an extension of the songs themselves, rather than mere spectators to the overall sound." - Records of Gauhd.

"Deluxe vinyl issue, 2x180 gram vinyl + extra 7" featuring three so-far unreleased exclusive tracks! West Coast psychedelic folkie currently making some of the most dynamic and truly original sounds to emerge from the new freak-folk movement. Gracefully immersing 60s/70s UK acid balladry with Middle Eastern traditional music and communal jams. Castro succeeds in reaching otherworldly vistas and ocean-spanning folk transcendence. He assembled a new band, The Young Elders, a truly stellar cast of musicians who played in folk and avant rock ensembles like Current 93, In Gowan Ring, Cul De Sac and Damo Suzukis Network performing together on an East-meets-West melting pot of instrumentation from acoustic guitar to Celtic harp to Moroccan tabla to nyabinghi drum. A mixing of folk ballads, psychedelic folk rock, Middle Eastern traditional music and Bay Area acid-raga. The result being astonishing, challenging and utterly psychedelic. A modern acid folk masterpiece." -Daffodelic.

Title: Lemniscate
Format: LP
Label: Sonig
Country: Germany
Price: $35.00
"The lemniscate is, fundamentally a mechanism for the infinite. A lemniscus or ribbon that chases itself in a figure of eight describes the repeated and unending journey of the unbounded. Jorinde Voigt draws structures energized by real and imagined possibilities to investigate finite boundaries of systems. She frames and moderates these investigations with spatiotemporal data, information on speed, volume, and an overlaying of sequences. Her notations embrace the concept that elements of equal value co-exist in a logic and proportion of their own. In 2008, following Voigts concepts, composers Patric Catani and Chris Imler, developed the lazy 8 of the infinity motif at Watermill-Center, NYC, a laboratory for performance, in the form of an acoustic cluster. The looped composition formed of 16 chapters, snakes around 7 points realized using a multi-channel arrangement of 6 loudspeakers and thus describes the shape of a lemniscate through pure sound. To enable home listening, the multi-channel installation has been mixed down by the artists as a stereo version. LP in a limited edition of 260 copies." - Sonig.

Hand-numbered edition of 500. "A multi-instrumentalist song duo based in Amsterdam. The Anecdotes are a series of biographical song portraits of artists written by Seamus Cater. A diverse collection of 19th and 20th century figures are portrayed, including Bas Jan Ader, Eadweard Muybridge, Alexis Lapointe, Ewan MacColl, L.S. Lowry and Sergei Prokofiev. The music of Seamus Cater and Viljam Nybacka mixes the awkwardness of revivalist British folk with contemporary songwriting and extended instrumental techniques. With a core of subtle complexity, their sound builds more towards silence than noise and is as engaging as it is immersive. Recorded by Shahzad Ismaily (Bonnie Prince Billy/Yoko Ono Plastic Ono Band), who plays bass on three songs, the album was mastered by Jeff Carey and features Eiríkur Orri Olafsson (mum) on trumpet and horn." -Anecdotal.

Country: USA

“This GREAT record out of Philadelphia showed up with little fanfare: record w/ paste-on sleeve, fake Matador logo, an invoice claiming I owe them $49.99 upon receipt of this promo. They deserve at least half of that (and are charging far less, like a reasonable $10 per LP) for this fine effort, steeped in the kind of splintered ‘90s indie rock filigree that comes with triangulation between Philly college radio/WPRB saturation, a sideline in Jersey Shore pop punk regionalism, with some great, and the low pressure of affordable living, with raspy female vocals in the Peppermint Patty vein. The lack of polish across all tracks here works to their advantage, veritable breathing holes inside their basement jar life as this five-piece crawls and scrapes their way through two sides of hooky, tire-kicking material, jumping carelessly between budget studio and noisy four-track. There’s been at least one comparison in my peer group to where the Crutchfield sisters are coming from, but at this late date, it’s not like anyone can really claim ownership to the music of two generations past, and lyrically (“Club M”) it would appear that The Cats have been around the block a few more times with regards to their location, and have a lot more to say about it. Locality at its finest. Strong work and I hope there’s more to follow. 225 numbered copies.” - Doug Mosurock, Still Single.

Title: Euporie Tide
Format: Double LP
Label: El Paraiso
Country: Denmark
Price: $30.00
"Double LP version, includes a download coupon for the album. Since they formed in 2004, Danish instrumental four-piece Causa Sui has become a much-revered act on the fertile European psych scene. The soil planted in festivals like Roadburn, Roskilde, Burg Herzberg, has been harvested with praise by Uncut, Julian Cope, and Mojo, as well as growing a dedicated fanbase -- paying top Euros for a first edition vinyl of any of the bands seven past LPs. Many psych and stoner-rock bands aim for the perfect imitation of that vintage heavy psych sound circa 1970, but Causa Sui have forged their own distinct path. Causa Sui draws on a larger pool than the usual derived exploration of Sabbath riffs and clichéd Krautrock jamming. Collaborations include members of Tortoise and Chicago Underground Collective (under the name Chicago Odense Ensemble) and Sunburned Hand Of The Man (released as Pewtr Sessions,) and the band always adds untraditional flavors, past and present, into their seething experimental sound. Causa Sui has been described as "the sound of a giant wave rolling up through the last four decades of rock," which is truer than ever for their most ambitious album to date, Euporie Tide. Yes, the heavy riffs are certainly here, but its apparent that it does not tread the waters of retro rock. Theres a different depth here. Whereas previous albums were brewed with spontaneity, and flickers of complete improv, Euporie Tide was meticulously perfected over years of work. Opening track "Homage" pays tribute to the early/mid-1990s American grunge and stoner-rock bands the band grew up with. From that point of departure, Causa Sui goes on to weave a rich and complex textile, with threads coming from early 1970s electric jazz, post-rock, exotica, heavy rock, raga, and all kinds of psychedelia. Whether the band goes for straight-up rock or ventures into freeform territory, theres always that certain warmth and atmosphere present, which is so characteristic for Causa Sui. When one reaches the multigenre-influenced grooves on the albums D-side, its obvious that the band has arrived at something that is very relevant in the present day. The album was recorded and produced by Jonas Munk, crafting a sound that is simultaneously naturalistic in approach, yet strangely detailed. The album was mastered in a way as to maintain the full dynamic range of the recordings." - El Paraiso.

Title: Pewtr Sessions 1-2
Format: Double LP
Label: El Paraiso
Country: Denmark
Price: $30.00
"2014 repress of this release from 2012. Pewtr Sessions 1-2 collects two limited vinyl-only Causa Sui albums, originally released in 2011. The two albums, released in April and August respectively, both feature American musician Ron Schneiderman and both sold out immediately after release. Schneiderman from American improv-rock collective Sunburned Hand of the Man first got together with Danish stoner/Kraut/jazz ensemble Causa Sui in December 2006 for a loose, improvised gig at the old cinema at Christiania -- Copenhagens autonomous, and notorious, free commune. A live recording of this gig was released the following year, under the curious bandname Pewtr jjjjj, and became widely admired among fans of free-form psychedelic rock for its updated version of late 1960s/early 1970s freak-out bands such as Blue Cheer, Guru Guru and Ash Ra Tempel. In the early summer of 2009 Schneiderman was back in Denmark, this time for a three-week stay as co-curator of the art-and-music event Festival of Endless Gratitude. During this period the group was united again for a few shows and a couple of recording sessions in Causa Suis studio in Odense, which resulted in the Pewtr Sessions albums. These records consist of loosely structured sun and beer-fueled jams that were later edited and mixed by Causa Sui guitar player and producer Jonas Munk. While all the psychedelic fury from the Christiania live recording is still very prevalent on these studio sessions, they also see the group channeling into new territories, such as pieces heavy on analog electronics and motoric grooves. Pewtr Sessions 1 and 2 are albums that could only be recorded in an impulsive mode. Yet there is an alternative kind of structure taking place in almost every piece -- some intuitive, almost psychic connection, which moves the sounds from one place to another." - El Paraiso.

Title: Pewtr Sessions 3
Format: LP
Label: El Paraiso
Country: Denmark
Price: $27.00
"Causa Sui returns with a third round of mind-bending jams featuring Ron Schneiderman! The savage, kaleidoscopic improvisations of the quintets previous two volumes instantly gained reverence among fans of free-flowing Krautrock and detuned stoner rock, and this brand new addition, recorded in the late summer of 2013, fulfills the groups potential entirely. The Krautrock grooves, the low-end heaviness and the sprawling furor is still very much present -- but this set is also permeated by a rare free jazz sensibility, at times recalling American masters of improvisation such as John Coltrane and Don Cherry in spirit. Ferociously experimental, yet absolutely welcoming and corporal. "Incipiency Suite," which takes up the entire B-side of this record, stands as the high pinnacle of what this group is capable of with the inclusion of Ron Schneiderman: an afternoon of spontaneously-recorded parts, cut-and-pasted into an abundant whole by studio wiz Jonas Munk, creating a unique interplay between in-the-moment improvisation and creative studio editing. History: Ron Schneiderman (aka Pewtr) from American impro-rock collective Sunburned Hand Of The Man first got together with Danish stoner/Kraut/jazz ensemble Causa Sui in December 2006 for a loose, improvised gig at the old cinema at Christiania -- Copenhagens autonomous, and notorious, free commune. A live recording of this gig was released the following year, under the curious bandname Pewtr jjjjj, and became widely-admired among fans of free-form psychedelic rock for its updated version of late 1960s/early 1970s freak-out bands such as Blue Cheer, Guru Guru and Ash Ra Tempel.

The group got together again for a performance at 2012s Roskilde Festival and later again at Festival of Endless Gratitude in the summer of 2013. It was during the latter sojourn that Pewtr Sessions 3 was recorded." - El Paraiso.

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

"CAVE doesnt waste any time. Four bars into this nameless cut and theyre all locked into the groove. The groove is hypnotic, but its in the subtle changes where Cave carves out a niche for themselves. There are loads of bands out there that can hold down a groove and improvise, but very few are as in tune with each other and tight as Cave is. Cave can trick you into believing theyre freely jamming and turn on a dime without notice. Not an easy task. Cave are excellent at sleight of hand and efficient to boot. Efficient one must be when limited to the finite space allowed on a 7" flexi disc and Id venture to say that no band has succeeded more wildly in filling up a flexi with a track that seemingly only lasts a minute. Actual track time: 5:01. This autobahn-ready instrumental picks up where 2011s Neverendless left off. 500 were pressed, if youre asking. Zero will remain, if youre sleeping. No sleep til winter!

"Recorded in 1967 at Chicagos Universal Studios and laboriously laden with Buckinghams-style horns and strings, the Cave Dwellers thought theyd locked their first hit down. Given just a few minutes to produce a B-side, the quintet unleashed their primitive and theretofore-unheard power. Run Around ended up a punk precursor that took contemporary rock to its tough, angry, and logical conclusions, scorching past anything the radio ran in its day. Intending only to tear off something fast and easy, the Dwellers had achieved one of Chicago garage rocks most ferocious moments. That original Jim-Ko single has been reproduced alongside two previously unissued rockers and housed in a glorious gatefold sleeve with copious notes and quotes from a confused newsman about the longhair invasion." -Numero Group.

Dutton, who is still a member of CCMC today (a trio with John Oswald and Michael Snow), was once a member of Torontos legendary Schwitters inspired sound poetry quartet The Four Horseman. He joined CCMC in 1989, bringing a new dimension to the groups sound with his guttural grumblings and Mongoloid droning, leading them into weird outer-space ethnographic territory.

Country: Canada
Price: $22.00
"From 1974 until the early 1980s CCMC played at least two concerts a week, most of which took place in their own venue, The Music Gallery, in Toronto. The band was and continues to be a "free music orchestra" devoted to spontaneous composition. One look at the cover of the Vol 1 LP and its apparent that CCMC are not your typical hippy free-rock group, slick-suited jazz cats, nor tweed academic weekend composers. In fact, CCMC never really look like typical musicians at all, but rather like visual artists, family men, scholars, Canucks, ecologists, sculptors and radical adults they are. Similarly, their sound can never really be pinned down in the way that other devotees of "free" music usually are; never as dogmatic as AMM, as angry as American free jazz, as bleak as Japanese free jazz or as humorless as European free improv. CCMC are as comfortable playing toys and melodies as they were noise electronics and torrential freak-outs. In the truest sense CCMC were sonic explorers devoted to spontaneous free music, uninhibited by any restriction, be it melody, silence, genre, volume or instrumentation.
Free Soap is CCMCs masterpiece, especially the incredible real-time tone poem a.k.a. February 13th that takes up the first side of the LP. The piece begins with sparse strokes of marimba, trumpet, synthesizer, bowed bass and piano moving into the brilliant middle section which uses long silences in a way that anticipates Onkyo by over 30 years and then builds into an all out free-scorcher which sounds like it could have been off a Center of the World LP if not for the electronics and steel drum which keep it lifted, weird & diversely Canadian." - B. Hocura.

"We would all be playing simultaneously and relationships would appear in equal and respectful side by side running not in commentary, not in fugues/imitations, not in accompaniments, not in team-work but in togetherness of our individual, ultimately alone lives. Being Together. … Sometimes with the CCMC the ensemble "running" … transcends the pack and the sound becomes so full, so charged, that it becomes a floating speeding electrical cloud. One cant tell what one is playing but one feels it to be ecstatically part of the Unity, one cant account for where any of the sounds are coming from, theyve all become one. Its an Eternity. This happened during a concert in Vancouver. I felt myself floating and the sound became visible light." - Michael Snow.

Recorded in January 1980, almost one year after Free Soap, Vol 5. Without a Song seems instilled with a new sense of humour and adventure. The LP finds the group quoting from lounge piano ballads one moment, whimsical comedy soundtracks the next and then lifting off into a full force freakout. The dynamics are incredible, with the band achieving the kind of volcanic volume associated with Japanese noise groups almost 15 years later, followed by passages of serene beauty and near silent micro-dynamics. Its a truly enlightening ride, one that provides startling new insights on every listen." - B. Hocura.

Similarly, their sound can never really be pinned down in the way that other devotees of "free" music usually are; never as dogmatic as AMM, as angry as American free jazz, as bleak as Japanese free jazz or as humorless as European free improv. CCMC are as comfortable playing toys and melodies as they were noise electronics and torrential freak-outs. In the truest sense CCMC were sonic explorers devoted to spontaneous free music, uninhibited by any restriction, be it melody, silence, genre, volume or instrumentation.
After the untimely death of Larry Dubin in 1978, only 47 years young, Michael Snow compiled what he and the group thought were some of the best recordings that really emphasized the unique drumming tsunami that was Larry Dubin. The resulting 3 LP box set, financed with money left to Snow in Larry Dubins will, shows an incredibly diverse body of work from the unmatched torrent of electricity/percussion that is Circuitry to the tumultuous tone float of Radio in a Stolen Car. The breadth of sound across these 6 sides of vinyl is truly staggering." - B. Hocura.

"Dubin is a subtle and great musician; had he emerged in New York he would probably be influential… With the CCMC Larry would often drum/run along beside the rest of the music. He would pace it. His playing would be parallel to and equivalent to the other music. We would all be playing simultaneously and relationships would appear in equal and respectful side by side running not in commentary, not in fugues/imitations, not in accompaniments, not in team-work but in togetherness of our individual, ultimately alone lives. Being Together. … [Dubins] sensitivity to all sound didnt come from reports of the attitude of John Cage. Larrys formative experiences were local, experiential, not "academic." In that sense he was a folk musician. … To the ways of ecstatically roaring into the future that the greatest Jazz drummers developed he Responded with his own kind of Continuity that in general avoided the compartmenting and bracketing of most Jazz drumming in favor of a flow with few edges. He seemed to conceive of a kind of absolute top speed tempo and from this musical-psychological equivalent to the speed of light he would reactively choose sub-tempos around which vibrations would be organized. His playing was very varied but was built around snare drum rolls which swelled and subsided from oceanic roars to tender caresses and which by their metamorphosing continuousness made a wall of tactility which was a constantly responding Place for any other sound Event that needed a place to take." - Michael Snow.

Price: $32.00
"First ever reissue of this rare and obscure French private press LP from 1976. More of a one-off happening then an actual band, the album resulted from the one only meeting of the group for a single overnight champagne-fueled session. As unlikely as it seems, somebody thought to roll some tape, and a very special evening was captured pressed to vinyl. Opening with a gorgeous drifting instrumental, and centered around three long jaw-dropping acid folk originals, the album is filled out by wild romps though traditional folk songs. All English lyrics, female backing vocal, two acoustic guitars, dulcimer, autoharp, banjo, and some especially beautiful snaky flute work. The original compositions are truly magical: gently flowing and beautifully pastoral, but with an eerie, druggy, edginess. Think The Book of Am minus the sunshine electricity and youll be in the right zone. The trad folk cuts on the other hand are nearly as cool: joyous, dirty, and totally ragged music by for the people. No folk boom pretense on display, just ageless tunes, fast pickin and wild drunken wooziness, like some sort of reckless gypsy hoe-down. Everything here is totally steeped in a damp, pagan/mystical basement atmosphere, that combined with the raw direct-to-tape, no overdubs/mixing execution perfectly crude, haunting cover art make for a very distinct whole. Presented here our version is hand screenprinted just like the original, with a paste-on back cover reproduction of the original mimeograph, all on a heavy weight vintage style cover. Pressed on 180 gram virgin vinyl with exact reproduction labels. Edition of 350 copies." -Time-Lag.

Enclosed in empty shadows, with vague slides of unanswered prayers, these two sides etch a dateless form into weak ends, and pyrrhic dells. Everydays are left empty-handed, and enjoyed only then.

Vestiges Of An Inherent Melancholy follows on from the recent pairing of releases on Basses Frequencies and features 2 sides of unearthed recordings that were created between December 2006 and July 2008. These two sides find the duo creating some truly beautiful drone works with their use of an organic and electronic palette of instrumentation; cello, violin, pipe organ, electronics, tape, field recordings, samples, and mixing board. This really is a standout side from Celer, pulling together their variety of sounds to make a heart breaking collage of sounds falling between beautiful dream tones and heavier dark moments. Vestiges Of An Inherent Melancholy again pushes Celer further to the front of modern minimal composition, proving that they were one of the most interesting, consistently outstanding, and intriguing acts around in recent years, creating some of the finest and most beautiful, fragile drone records around. The full experience of a Celer release is complete with accompanying titled fragmented sections for the side long pieces, and striking cover photography by Danielle.

Title: Absence of a Canary
Format: LP
Label: Suction
Country: Canada
Price: $21.00
"A reissue CERAMIC HELLOs seminal 1981 LP, The Absence of a Canary. A long-time cult favourite among fans of obscure 80s synthpop, this LP remains highly sought-after by minimal synth vinyl collectors. The LP has been painstakingly remastered, transferred from perhaps the last sealed copy of this LP in existence. Long-time followers of Suction Records will remember that we had originally planned to reissue this LP in 2002. Ten years + one sold-out reissue on Germanys Vinyl-On-Demand later, and we are very excited to make this Canadian minimal synth classic available again. Ceramic Hello was formed in 1980 by BRETT WICKENS, in Burlington, Ontario, Canada. Having just left future-Canadian-pop-sensations THE SPOONS, Wickens teamed up with ROGER HUMPHREYS, recording just one 7" single, followed quickly by The Absence Of A Canary, in 1981. The music was inspired by the contemporary synthpop sounds coming out of the UK (OMD, John Foxx, Gary Numan, et al), but the production was decidedly more lo-fi, and combined with Humphreys neo-classical contributions, the result was a unique electronic pop sound. Selling 1000 copies of Ceramic Hello in 1980 was no easy task, but appreciation for the record grew steadily over the next 25 years, with copies of the original LP eventually selling for as much as US$350 on Ebay. Even Vinyl-On-Demands 2006 reissue has long since sold out, and now commands nearly as much money as the original LP. Although this Suction Records release wont be the first official reissue of the LP, it is the first time it will be reissued in its original single-LP format, with the original artwork. It is also the first time that the LP will be reissued in CD / digital download format. Both vinyl and CD editions will also come with a fold-out poster, containing various Ceramic Hello press clippings-interviews, reviews, and college radio chartings-culled from Wickens personal archives." -Suction.

"Repro-reissue of this 1967 album on Vault, featuring Ry Cooder. Obscure but classic drug vibed Indian-based psychedelic sitar-led instrumentals w/ an early Beefheart flavor. CD reissue from the 90s is long unavailable. "Ry Cooders Ceyleib People are arguably one of the more innovative groups of the late 60s. Taking the loping blues romp of Captain Beefheart and filtering it through Indian music, the group created a very short album of two 10-11 minute parts. For 1967, this is definitely hippy experimental music, hopping from guitar riffs to sitar drones to mellotron rambling and back without regard for convention. Its almost as if there was an intent to fuse the influences of Ravi Shankar with those of the old blues legends, except that rarely is there any true juxtaposition of both styles, instead one will start out and then give way to another, segment by segment. Its as if someone gave a studio the masters for several Ravi Shankar and Captain Beefheart albums, asked them to splice them together, and then left, only to have the engineer play a joke by adding parts of Days of Future Passed in as well. Overall, its a pretty successful experiment especially considering its age. While this might not have been so impressive had it been from a few years later, its presence in 1967 is quite prescient." -Mike McLatchey

"CFCF treads dark waters on The River. Where the 22-year old Montreal based producer CFCFs (Michael Silver) debut album Continent (Paper Bag 2009) hinted at primal and ambient themes, The River fully transports the listener to a heart of darkness. Inspired by Werner Herzogs visual masterpiece Fitzcarraldo, The River follows a dream-like arc, lucid sound sequences from a lunatic mind. The Rivers voyage begins with Before and After Light, a track based around a cyclical finger-picking sample and ghostly tones that could form the core of an Ambient Eno album. It Was Never Meant to Be This Way furthers the vessel along on a wash of synth waves and a melancholy chopstick piano figure. Around the bend to the A-sides end is the choral, Popul Vuh-inspired cosmic guitar shredding of Upon the Hill. Frozen Forest heightens the grandeur opening the B-side with a slow-mo break beat and arpreggiating bass work out. The title track casts doomsday shadows before the best use of a master blaster drum attack since DJ Shadows Stem/Long Stem. After the unrest, Orage drifts on a bed of wreckage into an uncertain dusk. The first pressing of The River is limited to 550 vinyl copies. The first run of jackets are printed black offset with a bronze letterpress overprint on heavy news board. Jacket concept and design by Kevin ONeill of Work For Good, based loosely on the weathered map that lead Fitzcarraldo to madness and freedom. 6 new songs + full digital download including remixes from Games, Jacques Renault, and Coyote." -Rvng

"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.

Format: LP

Country: Australia
Price: $26.00
"Following three critically acclaimed solo albums, Sarah Mary Chadwicks Roses Always Die expands on the quiet intensity of her previous work, exploring memory, grief and personal analysis. Her unflinching approach to songwriting introduces complex, often difficult subject matter as vivid as it is understated. An old immobile organ provides the only accompaniment to her voice, giving the album an eerie consistency that perfectly underpins the diverse, open-ended narratives that run through each song. The second album recorded with Geoffrey OConnor (Crayon Fields), it has a more organic sound than the wall of synths used on 9 Classic Tracks, with most songs comprised of just one voice and a live 70s Yamaha analogue organ -- a huge, heavy, double-tiered beast with built-in percussion beats and pedal bass -- recorded on site in the loungeroom at Sarahs house in Collingwood, Melbourne. Unembellished and at times brutally sparse, these songs are whittled down to their surprisingly hooky, heartbreaking, wry, bare-boned essentials." - Rice is Nice.

“One of the most played albums in the IDDB office of 2015 was Sarah Mary Chadwicks 9 Classic Tracks (Siltbreeze). On this 7" the Melbourne-based artist gives us two tracks from the same session as the new album Roses Always Die which was recently released on Rice Is Nice. Two tracks of just guitar and vocals, stripped down to the bare minimum and driven by an austere ambience. As always, 200 copies, black vinyl, white cardboard sleeve with postcard attached, stamped white labels, insert. Plays at 45rpm.” - I Dischi Del Barone.

Artist: CHAIN OF FLOWERS
Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Alter
Country: UK
Price: $23.00
"Emerging from the murk and dirt of their home in Cardiff, Wales, Chain of Flowers reveal their long-awaited debut album. Recorded at Monnow Valley Studio in Wales, Chain of Flowers is a dense eight-track opus of heavy shoegaze sonics and urgent post-punk. The bands razor-sharp attention to classic songwriting nous means the record dips and dives between euphoric, hazy melody ("Glimmers of Joy") and overwhelming gloom ("Bury My Love"), all while retaining a breathless pace. Lead track "Crisis" epitomizes this frantic personality exquisitely, skirting between sludgy atmospherics and hardcores punchy immediacy with aplomb. The six-piece sowed their seeds through the release of six songs since 2012 (via the bands own Swine Language tape label), cutting their teeth on dates alongside Iceage, Cremation Lily, The Fall, The Smear, Shallow Sanction, Eagulls, Nothing, and more before decamping to Monnow Valley for the four-day session that spawned their debut LP. "We dropped ourselves into the middle of nowhere and hammered it out with next to no sleep available to us. The urgency and delirium of the situation helped us," explains the bands vocalist Joshua Smith. "Though we only had 96 hours in a studio to physically make it what we wanted, this record is the product of our last three years as a band and beyond that as individuals. We spent a lot of time in our space writing these songs and weve also spent a lot of time ironing them out through playing as and when and wherever we have been able to." Mixed over six months by New York-based Ben Greenberg (Uniform, The Men, Pygmy Shrews), the LP sees Chain of Flowers break free of their locality. "Its been a drawn out but very necessary sonic exorcism for us," explains Josh. "We are happy that it will see the light of day."" - Alter.

Artist: CHAINO AND HIS AFRICAN PERCUSSION SAFARI
Title: Jungle Echoes
Format: LP
Label: Black Sweat
Country: Italy
Price: $26.00
"A young boy found and raised by American missionaries, the only survivor of a nonviolent African tribe whose members, entranced by ancient rhythms, had the ability to communicate with animals and run like cheetahs... Pulled away from this original enchanted world, he grew up among Westerners. He tried to adapt as much as he could but remained very much rooted in the land of his ancestors. Still haunted and nourished by his origins, he engraved the rhythms of his land into the grooves of an Omega Disk..." The year is 1959 and exotica music is in full swing. Beautiful women with banana belts and flower necklaces are gathering serious attention by seducing each and every average Joe dreaming of sunny holidays on exotic islands populated by colorful birds. Low-cost travel and mass tourism were on their way. Chaino and His African Percussion Safari were capable of playing for 17 hours straight -- seven percussion instruments at the same time. They recorded Jungle Echoes in a sublime delirium; its an absurd myth and an imaginary product of the past. A unbelievable record made of rhythms and shouts; a jungle, a furnace, a disturbing trip into the imaginary world of this unrivaled percussionist, this son of Africa -- regardless of the myth surrounding his real origin. A dangerously addictive and syncopated atomic bomb of a record. Reissued by Black Sweat Records with Moi JConnais." - Black Sweat.

Price: $21.00
"Chakk existed between 1981 and 1987. Their first single, Out Of The Flesh, was recorded with Richard H. Kirk at Cabaret Voltaires Western Works studio and mixed and engineered by Alan Cross, a member of the band who had studio training. Chakks original sound was centred around Cross four track tape machine, some home built echo and effects boxes and a small mixing desk. They had always believed that the most important instrument a band could use was the studio itself. The first album by Sheffield electro funk group Chakk was originally released as a cassette by the band themselves in 1982. Personnel for this album: Mark Tattersall (also in Element/Transelement, drummer for Cabaret Voltaire on various recordings), Mark Brydon (also in Moloko, Hula), Sim Lister (also in Heights of Abraham), Alan Cross (DJ Alan X). This early recording, unheard by most people until today, presents a much jazzier and funkier Chakk than later Fon releases. It could be compared to early Clock DVA. Theres also a lot of Cabaret Voltaire here, some Hula, also some Industrial music. The album is one wild ride of styles and sounds. Its a fantastic document of its time, and at the same time a timeless and brilliant piece of music. Carefully remastered for this first digital release." - Klanggalerie.

Title: Reflection
Format: LP
Label: Mississippi
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"Chalk Circle existed in the Washington, DC metro area punk/hardcore scene between 1981 and 1983. They were the first all-female rock or punk band to ever record and perform in DC, their recorded output is finally available on vinyl for the first time. Reflection includes 12 songs from compilations, and live shows, and unreleased recordings and a 16 page booklet with extensive liner notes by Don Fleming. Chalk Circle, although personally part of the birth of hardcore as friends and fans of the Dischord scene, musically never fit in to the stringent rules of that scene. They sound like they were from a time where experimentation was rewarded, where new ideas were examined and transformed by people who were curious and excited to fit with the moment. For those who want a tag, well, think about the post punk of Delta 5, Liliput, The Swell Maps and the Slits. Think about the youthful energy of DC Hardcore and the enthusiasm of teenagers making music that comes from the heart and not from copying riffs from rock records.

Title: Blue Eyes Of The March
Format: CD
Label: Faraway Press
Country: UK
Price: $28.00
500 copies. "Theres an amazing attention to aesthetics that Andrew Chalk undeniably pays for each release with his name on it. It starts with the music and continues through the cover artwork, packaging, and presentation. The first part of Blue Eyes of the March is a 20 minute long piece which sounds like it was created by a prepared guitar, tuned only to play a limited number of pre-determined notes as theyre quietly plucked and resonate for long stretches. The tones resemble some of those on the Buddha Box, and while the effect is similarly serene and meditative, theres a number of differences that are inherent with the basic natures of the medium. The biggest advantage I think is the ability to amplify the sound and be completely bathed in it, which is something Chalks music always lends itself to. Chalks music is not on a loop, either, and each piece makes a gradual evolution over the time. The second part is an absolutely heavenly 31 minute long piece. Unlike the first part, this one sounds like it was created by piano, yet it echoing in a similar way to the other. The piano tones and treatment are almost reminiscent of some 20+ year old Harold Budd work but while the set notes are very rigid, Chalks playing is quite fluid." - Brainwashed.

Limited edition of 600 copies. "When the moon did not free him nor the sun release him, he thought his time strange, became impatient with his life; he moved the gate of the fort with his ring finger, suddenly turned the bony lock with his left toe; with his nails he got outside the threshold, with his knees out from the door of the entrance. Then he plunged straight into the sea, the person among the waves. There he lay outstretched for five years, both five years and six, seven years, eight. At last he came to a stop on the surface, by a nameless headland, a treeless land. With his knees he struggled up from the ground, with his arms he turned himself over. He got up to look at the moon, to admire the sun, to observe the Great Bear, to scan the stars." - Three Poplars.

Price: $28.00
CD reissue of CD-R release from 2005. Beautiful hand-made mini-LP style gatefold sleeve. "Chalk has again walked a very fine line between complete abstraction and conscious identification...Chalk steps a bit differently, proceeds with his sound in a fulfilling fashion, and somehow works with his sound more like a composer than anyone else. I can imagine him toying with his sounds like theyre clay, shaping them to make an architecture or to plan an entire geographic region. Every release Chalk has seems to produce this same effect, this sense of a musician as sculptor. As the album begins the entire sound is bathed in a kind of blind stupor, sounds traveling aimlessly for minutes at a time before the distinct impression of a bell is made clear...The most change occurs in tone, however, elevating the album from a tomb-like sound to the hum of the open air. Conceptually the whole album sounds like a liberation from architecture and a step away from the tight, always very centered sound that Chalk employs. Whatever the case, Vega has that static and rolling sound in its first half and then slowly dissolves, revealing a subterranean process that mightve been working throughout the whole album." - Lucas Schleicher/Brainwashed.

Title: Its Broken
Format: LP
Label: Trunk
Country: UK
Price: $18.00
"Theres no one quite like Bob Chance. Hes a California man who makes his own music. And here he is, on fire. Its a privately-pressed album that has become a cult item in recent years. DJ Shadow calls it hairy forearm disco, I think it walks a fine line between the dancefloor and the asylum. Originally recorded and issued by himself in 1980, Its Broken represents Bob Chances creative juices flowing and then possibly overflowing all over the place. Hes a multi-talented multi-instrumentalist who writes his own songs. Trunk first came across the album in the USA, and decided to feature it as one of the strange slabs of vinyl I write about for my weird record column in Mojo. I described it as the musical equivalent of Curry House DIY, an unusual and unexpected flow of ideas that maybe shouldnt work together but actually do in a most unorthodox and functional way. And if I have to describe the album musically to people I explain it has a touch of Giorgio Moroder, a bit of the Beach Boys and a sprinkle of Glen Campbell as a serial killer. How can you not love a nine-minute post-disco oddity called Its Broken? Why would you not want to thrill at a five minute instrumental journey into Bobs jungle? And how about a short trip inside a stalkers van? Exactly, its all irresistible. And now, thanks to this reissue, more of us can enjoy the genius that is Bob Chance and his very unique music." -Jonny Trunk.

"Transportation is the story of Chandra Oppenheim, a 12 year-old girl who fronted an art-disco / post-punk outfit at the height of New Yorks adjective-punk scene in 1980. Showing considerable promise as a song writer by the age of 10, New York artist Dennis Oppenheim recruited local noisemakers The Model Citizens (who later became The Dance) and drummer Fred Maher (Material) to back his daughter Chandra in one of the most unique projects of the time. As Chandra penned her lyrics, the band composed abstract dance textures that gives the recording its unique and timeless sound: pulsing bass, resonant keyboards, and Chandras commanding voice. The original Transportation EP was released in 1980 on GoGo/On records, the bands own imprint. Cantor Records is proud to reissue the Transportation EP along with four unreleased tracks recorded by The Chandra Dimension (her touring band comprised entirely of teenagers) and packaged with a lovely 5"x7" booklet.

Title: Which Way To Leave?
Format: LP
Label: Room40
Country: Australia
Price: $24.00
Includes download code. "Which Way To Leave? is the latest record by Stockholm based musician John Chantler. The self-reflexive sequencing that tracks the sub-harmonic series in the opening blast of "Falling Forward" positions the record as Chantlers most explicitly melodic. These melodies however do not exist in a mono-dimensional vacuum, rather they co-exist in a meshed framework of dynamic layers of timbre. The records abrupt cuts, deft variations of density and unexpected diversions are happily explored with head-long dives into ravishing texture and extended stretches of surface stasis. The music draws on a domestic reimagining of the traditions of studio based electronic music/musique concrete and 20th century minimalism and delivers this with brash revitalized energy. Born out of his relocation to Stockholm, following an extended period in London, Which Way To Leave? bares the marks of senses attuned to new environments and spaces. Recorded for the most part at Chantlers home studio, additional material was recorded at Elektronmusikstudion (EMS). It features guest appearances by Carina Thorén (For Barry Ray) and cellist Okkyung Lee. Still Light, Outside his fourth LP released in 2015 is an extended suite that combines passages of stark minimalism centered at the bodily invasive extremes of the pipe organs register with striking explosions of color; massed chords shot through with heavy distortion and electronics that operate according to their own dream logic. It was described as "strikingly beautiful" by The Guardian. Chantlers three previous LPs were all released on Room40. Even Clean Hands Damage the Work (RM 459LP, 2014) included the first output from his time at EMS. It followed The Luminous Ground - released in 2011 and was included in The Wire magazines top releases of that year. The Luminous Ground was his first LP release focusing on the modular synthesizer system he first explored as part of the trio LP with Lawrence English and Tujiko Noriko, 2008s U." - Room40.

"Taking cues from the wordless death-grind proto-metal of the first Obituary lp: C>D- somehow takes the fear-soaked brain of that tiny dude from the o.g. THE FLY: two micro-seconds before he gets his web-trapped body eaten by the world most gruesome spider EVER: and power-channel it thru the MOST horribly unmusical-rotten guitar speaker cones since the creation of “music.” Speaking of music: inside this LP there is none: is not just mere dribbling NOISE: its like a one dimensional terra-plane of cultural war of warbly Anime-frightmares clashing in a baby-dumping dumpster in a Baltimore/DC area alleyway during a WRETCHED static storm while the co-criminal on watch nods off on the job whilst Ipodin The Swankys. On a Tuesday morning. In the Spring. Ive seen pictures of this band: but someone pulled a horrid prank and replaced the bullet-belts and street punx ice grills with shorts, muffin tops and smiles. Huh? Confusion Chaos is the fighting spirit: The Lp begins with some semblance of structure and riffs but like a magician armed with 10,000,000 daisy-chained death metal pedals instead of card tricks: the cunning seems to come on too quick to warrant a double-featured extended stay, unless the members want to “Fuck More.” - Imagine if the Happy Flowers WERE Horribly Charred Infants and Anuss and instead of LSD as the catalyst it was Grande Lattes mixed with the magic dust from the excess plastic off of big money Flexi-Discs and the sweat from the brow of all night nuclear sex addicts. I gotta hand it to the second full length from this amp scorched mild-mannered crew: it at least doesnt come with a tan file folder containing sharpie pictures of cookies and flowers. Not too many lp in the tomb that include that.... I remember reading an interview with Lotus Dan saying how “he could write a dissertation on the genius of Chaos Destroy” - while something like that could land you at LEAST a free entrance semester to Lansing Community College: im sure the “song writing” would throw a Fluxus-like brain nugget freeze to the District Manager of GUITAR CENTER East Coast Mt. Vernon for a LOOONG TIME. If you dug up the body of JIMI HENDRIX to show him the LORD-OF-THE-RINGS-ON-LEPROSY GUITAR TONE diseasing this platter: hed more than likely think his grave-dirt ears were filled with cotton tin balls dipped in Trouma-radiation static and say “ask Clapton or that Frank dude from Lebenden Toten what he thinks...anyway this record is POGO and RETARDED...”..Thx Jimi. How this bucket-of screaming bolts screech buzz no vowel no word lp ended up on Olde English Spelling Bee is truly a brain-boiling mystery: but the world is an even more destroyed place with its mutant creation. I suggest you drill/add four more off-center holes to the label and cash in your SLURPEE POINTS for the next punk/hxc phenom: BALANCED CORE: punx will trade in the fuzz pedals and blown 8 speaker cabinets for a SUPER nice home-gym to sweat out and show off balance beams routines of the most political and intense nature EVER. Imagine the scene reports on that: alot more RAW thats for sure. YOU HEARD IT HEAR FIRST."  - INZANE JOHNNY OLSON.

"Well there is one band that never made it to this seasons Mad Max fashion show, or the new bar where all the freshly minted tattoo models who used to collect Brainbombs records or whatever now wash ashore to meet and screw. Yes indeed, punk hath long since been frozen in the ice age or by the cold wave, or whatever.  Punk is hippies is noisers is hip hop gothers. Maybe you were too busy collecting dirt on white jeans, and scrubbin off any trace of bourgeois privelege. Or maybe you were gossiping about whose Italian motor cycle boots were the harshest or whatever, or maybe when you were eBaying Skinny Puppy shirts and Totenkopf pins for the freezing weather to come, you missed out on things like the Music Not Music 7” by Chaos Destroy or their Stupid Night tape on Hierodule. Indeed maybe you thought you discovered the new Black Flag in a Midwest sine wave or in some noise-hop karaoke or maybe you just realized that you really wanted to tie girls up all along and fascist haircuts were the best compliment to yr imaginary order. EITHER WAY. Chaos Destroy hath since emerged, behind your back and laughing at you for how much you have grown!..... Yep, in some parts of the world, say like Southern Maryland, “music” began with the first notes and drum slams of the “Mental Disorder” EP and only flashed here and there since, on say a few flexi discs or 3rd degree bootleg cassettes, mostly of Japanese origin. You wont get a better invitation to a real barn-yard violent party than from Chaos Destroy. For in the land of Chaos Destroy, the sound track is Dust Noise and Gai and the milk and honey is cider and glue. Nope, youre not gonna get this from all the new records with black and white photos of dudes in fetish masks around magickal alters they got from Party City. Who the fuck would want to go to a party like that? Nope, this record is purely illogical snot from a gang who were fed battery acid out their mommas titty. The sound of synapses unfurling and language crumbling A.K.A. THE BEST PUNK BAND IN THE USA.

The band features a great singer and future guitar legend Rick Iannaconne, who later made a big name for himself in the world of jazz, playing with Coltrane, Miles Davis etc. The recording came from the bands original tapes and sounds very good. Songs include High on a Happy, Walk on Mister, and the classic Dit Dewey Man, which is psychy, funky and flat out cool. The original test presses have been a coveted collectors item for a long time fetching hundreds of dollars making this reissue an instant classic. The album also features an insert and the 45 release of Dit Dewey Man as a bonus cut." - Void.

Title: Luftbobler
Format: Double LP
Label: The Vinyl Factory
Country: UK
Price: $27.00
"Brimming with subversive energy, searing wit and gallows humor, Luftbobler is the debut album by Dinos Chapman. Consisting of 13 tracks of electronic "Schlampige Musik," Luftbobler is the result of a decade of experimenting with sound. Inspired by insomnia, horror movies, and boredom, and made in a DIY fashion in the basement of his East London home, Luftbobler reflects Dinos Chapmans interests in the industrial pulse of Throbbing Gristle, willful experimentation of Stockhausen, and impish playfulness of Squarepusher, but sounds like none of them. At once eerily familiar and yet unplaceable, the albums multi-layered, innately physical soundscapes create a powerful sense of dislocation. Abstract and kinetic, the heavy low-end hits you in the solar plexus while the densely collaged melodies toy with your imagination. Dinos Chapman has also created the albums cover artwork, a limited edition of which will include a hand-tipped color etching." - Vinyl Factory. "...like a naked mole-rat plucked untimely from its snuggly basement-burrow, on its back, all squirmy, exposed to the suns dissecting rays." - Dinos.

Also included on the EP is a monstrous proto-techno-style remix of "Luftbobler" by producer Trevor Jackson." -Vinyl Factory.

Title: Fully Qualified Survivor
Format: LP
Label: Light In The Attic
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Although not as well known as his peers (Roy Harper, John Marytn, and Bert Jansch), the name Michael Chapman is an important one in the linage of English folk rock guitarists and singer/songwriters of the late 60s/early 70s. For those unfamiliar with Chapmans work, Roy Harper might be his closest musical cousin (and both artists were signed to EMIs seminal stoner record label Harvest -- also home to Kevin Ayers and Syd Barrett). Like other Harvest artists, Chapmans music contains a slightly drugged out feel, sublime guitar playing and intense lyrics. Chapman recorded 4 albums for Harvest between 1968 and 1972, of which 1970s Fully Qualified Survivor is hands down considered the classic amongst the whole highly coveted bunch. What makes Fully Qualified Survivor such a special album (besides being a vehicle for a young Mick Ronsons mind-blowing guitar heroics) are the layers of beautiful acoustic guitars, deranged vocals, floating conga drums, and the cello of one Paul Buckmaster -- the same man who provided the intense strings on Elton Johns dark masterpiece Mad Man Across The Water. Fully Qualified Survivor is very much an album more than a collection of songs as they seem to link together seamlessly, and in 2011 its hard to find words to do them justice... File this record between Roy Harpers Flat Baroque and Berserk, John Martyns Inside Out, and Bert Janschs Jack Orion and youll be fine. The perfect album for a blissful day and a joint. 180 gram LP housed in a deluxe gatefold sleeve featuring liner notes featuring a new interview with Chapman." - Light In The Attic.

Price: $22.00
"This album is the second in Yorkshire-born composer, singer, guitarist and maverick troubadour Michael Chapmans series of his more improvised musical releases. The first, 2011s The Resurrection and Revenge of the Clayton Peacock (PTYT 068CD), was Wire magazines #5 album of the year, and was widely and favorably 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 by the likes of Thurston Moore, Jack Rose, and Will Oldham. Pachyderm is an LP-length minimalist masterpiece, a single chord ambient work quite unlike anything Chapman has done before and equally as surprising and different as Peacock managed to be. The second track is a remix of the first side by one Rob Antony, a young Cumbrian neighbor of Michaels. Together they form a mellow and gently-shifting work that easily beckons auto-repeated plays. Chapman is now 71 years-old and playing better than ever. He started out on EMIs legendary 60s Harvest record label and turned down playing with both Elton John and David Bowies Spiders band. It only goes to show, as per the recent rediscovery of the talents of his other contemporaries Roy Harper or John Martyn, eventually, your time will come." - Blast First Petite.

"Michael Chapman, one of the finest acoustic guitar innovators borne of the late 70s UK folk scene, was in Philadelphia early 2010, paying tribute to his good friend, the late Jack Rose, a mighty six-string alchemist in his own right, and a youngster wholly inspired by Chapmans critical recordings. While sharing in the good light of friendship backstage, we asked Michael if hed ever recorded an LP of purely improvised guitar music. It seemed feasible, as the current state of acoustic guitar exploration was in equal measures inspired by both composition and improvisation. Chapman, along with Bert Jansch, John Renbourn, John Fahey et al, was a significant and historical informant for this young set. But he claimed to have never even entertained the notion of an LP of exclusively improvised playing. Anyone who has had the good fortune to hear Michael just take off in the middle of his songs and simply shred into zones of in-and-out-of-the-chakras stratosphere knows that such an idea could only be wildly welcomed. As it were, Michael got in touch within a week or so and said he was game, and here it is, The Resurrection And Revenge Of The Clayton Peacock, two sides of unbroken, idiosyncratic guitar improvisation that moves from neck-tapping harmonics into effects pedal kosmische into distinctly strange tone huzz. An odd and lovely, momentous session. Limited edition of 500 copies, each numbered with silver ink." -Ecstatic Peace.

"1971s Wrecked Again, Chapmans final for EMIs seminal stoner imprint Harvest, home to Kevin Ayers and Syd Barrett. Like other artists in the stable, Chapmans music contains a drugged-out feel, sublime guitar playing and intense lyrics, yet Chapmans career was not a pet project. Buried in EMIs release schedule and afforded no promotional budget, Wrecked Again is his lost classic. Recorded at the noted Rockfield Studio, a residential complex-cum-working farm in Wales,Wrecked Again explores orchestration via Paul Buckmaster (Miles Davis, David Bowie) and The London Symphony Orchestra and production courtesy of Gus Dudgeon (Elton John, Bonzo Dog Band), but also explores a new sound influenced by Memphis soul. With a blend of electric and acoustic instruments, Chapman is found where he feels most comfortable: in-between folk and rock, contrasting soft with edgy.Wrecked Again was made at a turbulent time in Chapmans life. Still struggling for money despite being four albums into his career, the sessions were marred by arguments over his pay. Unloved as it was by his label, the album did little to rectify the situation. Afterwards, Chapman and bassist Rick Kemp -- later of Steeleye Span -- set off on their first tour of the USA. Chapman was stoney broke -- initially refused a visa as a result ? and received no money. And that was the least of his troubles. By the third week, manager Andrew King had quit the country, and Kemp had run off with a woman in a green Mustang. Audiences couldnt understand Chapmans thick Yorkshire accent or British phrases, not least when he coughed on stage and told them, these French fags are killing my throat. After being mugged in New York, Chapman gave up -- before even reaching the West Coast. There had been highs, such as being asked to perform at King Curtiss funeral alongside the likes of Ray Charles, but the experience scarred the singer-songwriter. Back in the UK, he told his partner, Andru Chapman, If thats the big time then fuck it -- I dont want it. Chapman did, of course, go on to record more than 30 albums and tour extensively, but Wrecked Again was a pivotal moment in his career; the tipping point between his earlier, folkier material and his later, rockier output on Deram. Here issued on CD, the audio is remastered from the original master tapes, meaning its never sounded so clean. The booklet includes a memoir from Andru Chapman documenting the recording sessions and a slew of rare color photos.

"A rare document of a brief arc in Charalambides 17 year (and counting) trajectory, somewhere between the extreme spatial attenuation of the long gone Crucial Blast CDR Being As Is and the gentle intergalactic trio sway of the kranky disk Unknown Spin- and quite distance from both the exclamatory exhalations of Joy Shapes and the layered songcraft of Likeness. These are spartan duets of formalistic near-symmetry, a reminder that there was a time when Charalambides swung as close to the axis of Incus and FMP as to that of Takoma and ESP. Christina (voice) and Tom Carter (guitar) improvise non-textual melodic lines around an locus of mirror clarity, occasionally overlapping various strands using two DAT machines and a mixing board, in a nod to the pre ProTools digital scrap heap. Originally issued as a Peter King lathe cut LP on Eclipse Records in an edition of 100 in 2000, the reissue of this extreme rarity is remastered from a superior source for maximum clarity.

Deeply imbued with the full historical spectrum of American folk and blues song form, Exile is a tapestry of suppliant invocations directed at the heart of the unseen spiritual forces surrounding us. Dense arrangements and thickly-overdubbed tracks sit side-by-side with material that ranks among the sparest and most skeletal the group has recorded, giving Exile the psychic scope of their classic Market Square album while building on the refinements of the more recent Likeness and A Vintage Burden releases." -Kranky.

“Illusory, dreadful magic lies within their music. Terror is present but fleeting. Relief exists with all its attendant pleasure; yet, relief can only emerge in the wake of tension. Glowing Raw is a record full of such intricacies. Charalambides music carries the curious quality of being tethered only by itself. Tom and Christina Carter dont pull music(s) in as much as they reach out to touch them, and in so doing, they summon a place that exists only when they play. The music shies neither from traditionalism nor formlessness. Its easy to ascribe a landscape-like quality to this music, and easier still to presume that the landscape of the music is the scene of their surroundings. Yet, what emerges is a place existing only in the hearts of those conjuring it. Glowing Raw… Any glow worthy of the name is, if you think about it, always raw. No one glows on command…” – Matt Krefting
Recorded in the late-90s, with a very limited CDR release a decade later, Glowing Raw represents an important but often-unheard artwork in the all-amazing recording history of Charalambides. Created around the same time as the crucial Houston album, Glowing Raw is Charalambides in essential and pure form. Its powerful and potent.

"To say that the words unique and singular are over-used in describing music is to state the obvious. To apply these words to the sounds created by the various duo/trio configurations of the Texas group Charalambides over the last decade plus would be understatement. To be sure there are numerous antecedents to their music; to deny this of any artists work would be akin to saying that they are deaf. But they have surely broken new ground in the primitive/folk/mystic/improv/psych valley in which they toil. This new album is certainly not for the faint of heart. Five songs stretch and crawl over 75 minutes, with Christine Carter finding a new fearlessness in her voice that will draw comparisons to Patty Waters or the early work of Meredith Monk.

Title: Likeness
Format: CD
Label: Kranky
Country: USA
Price: $13.50
"Likeness is the newest release from the duo of Tom and Christina Carter. Recorded over a period of several weeks during the Spring of 2006, the album is a return to the spontaneous composition of previous Charalambides records such as Houston and Union. With the exception of The Good Life, which appeared in a primitive version on the Wholly Other CDR Home, all of the tracks on this release sprung forth after record was pressed, and were fleshed out via overdubs, editing and a malfunctioning space echo over the course of the next few months. Lyrical content largely derives from public domain, American popular song from the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, edited, rearranged and largely deconstructed by Christina into abstract protest songs for the century at hand. Musically, the album departs from the warm psych of A Vintage Burden in favor of the lush and layered vocal strata of Christinas later solo works, and a chillier, more abrasive guitar sound that favors The Velvets over The Byrds. Though containing much of the compositional concision that gave A Vintage Burden much of its appeal, the sound here just as frequently turns the corner into the abstract echoing spaces that characterize the more discordant sounds of Charalambides at the dawn of their Kranky residency." - Kranky.

Title: Strangle The Wretched Heavens
Format: LP
Label: Drawing Room
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
”We could get lazy and use words like spectral or haunting, but those words open neither ears nor hearts. This music is every bit as supernatural as it is grounded, and what it does, ultimately, is move according to its own internal logic, as our feelings move according to their own internal logic. That is what keeps Charalambides music relevant, what makes it timeless. It doesnt prey on simple nostalgia or easily defined categories of manufactured emotion. Its proven time and time again that its neither overly tethered to, nor an escape from, reality. These songs map a private language, a place of their own making, mysterious and alluring to anyone who hears them. They turn any number of worlds, with all attendant expectations, on their heads, acting as a platform for mobile, twirling, ineffable feeling.” – Matt Krefting
"Initially recorded in the mid-90s, with a very limited CDR release in the mid-00s, Strangle the Wretched Heavens represents a missing and essential puzzle piece in the all-amazing recording history of Charalambides. Following one of their earliest seminal releases, the almighty Market Square, Strangle… is the next chapter. Dark and intense, the album is pure beauty inside and out. Its magic is almost indescribable, but its power can be physically felt completely. Drawing Room is proud to present the first time vinyl release of Strangle… Each LP is pressed on 180-gram vinyl housed in a full color matte jacket (with download) and includes a foldout poster." - Drawing Room.

Title: Triangles

Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Theres something almost religious about this Charlatan (Brad Rose) LP, its narrative arc swinging from light to dark and back again. From the opening chords of "Lime Beauty," were awash in polarized-lens glinting twilight, fluorescent skies over the water. "Trace Blue Outlines" is trance-like and reflective, with long, arpeggiated figures chasing each other skyward in a fugue. Darkness creeps in around the edges of "Vodka Rocks," with almost post-rock moodiness bringing the side to a close. "Traces" opens the B-side and is a breakout track. With dark new-wave synth textures and warped dissonance, it has almost an Altar Eagle vibe, but things get darker, deeper, and more personal as multilayered melodic lines close in on the loping drum track. This is the kind of song you dont want to end, and wonder if you can set lyrics to. After "Foxes" provides the perfect interlude with classic Charlatan synth tones on a masterfully layered canvas, closer "Swimming Pool Summer Nights" is just as staggering. Its slow drum pattern echoes early Cluster experiments as blissed-out synths and even bird-like squawks pass through its celestial gates. As time goes on, it yields into what could almost pass for some kind of acceptance, embracing the darkness that came before it. More than any before it, this is an extremely emotional Charlatan record -- majestic, reflective, yearning for something like transcendence. Even though its richly layered, its not gauzy. There is nothing dreamy or half-remembered about these pieces. They are sharp, fresh as wounds. This record puts Charlatan on a seriously high plane for anyone exploring these tones, textures, or emotions. Limited to 500 copies only. Mastered by John P. Twells (Xela) at Seventh Door, cut to vinyl at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin. Original cover illustration by Caroline Teagle." -Digitalis.

"You might think a combination of British heavy metal and something approaching powerpop is just a bit unlikely, but then there are these tracks, recorded in London, live in the studio in one day, during the summer 1977. A year later the band released a single from those tapes ("The House on Chester Road") that made it to #17 on the UK Independent Charts.

Title: Who Is My Killer?
Format: 7"
Label: Hozac
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"UK punk in the late 1970s was a vast and impossibly diverse sea of groper, mopers and dopers, all desperate to clamp down on the raw nerves of a new generation full of anger and distrust, and when you look deep into the well, theres so many incredible overlooked gems, most of which dont quite fit the mold of what was to be soon homogenized for the public. Apart from the higher end of the UK punk food chain, there were countless imitators instantly, all unanimously clamouring for the attention of the new wave, and one little self-released 7 inch EP from a group hell-bent on shaking up the emerging genre confines known as Charlie Ungry, was among that vast output. Band founders Jeff Gibbs and Tony Sando had done time previously in Yellow Bird, a glam rock band that released one sole single in 1974 and then fragmented upon its immediate dismissal by the rock press, but they had more ideas to flesh out and by the time 1976 rolled around they had assembled the new group with Andy Demetriou and Steve Protheroe, named after a fictitious scapegoat Jeffs father always blamed any misdoings on, and this Charlie Ungry was born. Leveling off their enthusiasm for a wider variety of sounds than most of their contemporaries, the band grasped a serious metallic sound right out of the gate, as their signature song Who Is My Killer? rips through the speakers in a NWOBHM style thats undeniable. However, their glammy Slade-like rhythms and break-neck speed signaled a very punkish angle, reflecting the energy and nihilism of the exploding punk phenomenon, and their unique interplay between song styles, even mid-song as in Who Is My Killer? had an incredible effect, yet it was sadly underexposed. In retrospect, most truly innovative bands trying something new have had a cold response in general, par for the course in the case of Charlie Ungry as well, with their incredible fusion of British metal guitar, pulse-pounding glam vocals, and white-knuckle punk rock delivery. Most simpletons just couldnt get their heads wrapped around it." - Hozac.

Country: Germany
Price: $44.00
"We always thought Elonkorjuu was the heaviest album in the early 70s from Finland. But Charlies album features loud and wild guitars, screaming vocals, and can easily be described as the most outrageous Finnish album of the 70s not far away from Jimi Hendrix and Cream. Buttocks is a heavy, hypnotic and progressive with amazing guitar work from Eero Ravi, the musical soul of the band. So the Finnish scene had much more to offer back in the early 70s beside Wigwam and Tasavallan Presidenti. They have recorded Buttocks for Love Records. Mika Kaurismäki (film director/producer) wrote: I had already started to discover blues music, John Mayall, Jimi Hendrix, Cream and others, so it was quite logical, that I became of a fan of Charlies. In Lahti, we thought Charlies was the best band in Finland. Charlies played the famous Ruisrock festival in 1970. What a great band this is. Their first album Musiikkia elokuvasta Julisteiden liimaajat will be released early next year. Buttocks is so good and rare that is deserves a good reissue. The album comes with many extras such as photos and extensive liner notes. Dave Lindholm (musician) wrote: Charlies was the first big Finnish rock band for me. They played loud and rough. They looked like men, not popstars. They played the music I love. Could I ask for more? Well, I didnt! 500 numbered copies on 180 gram vinyl, in a heavy sleeve." -Shadoks.

Price: $41.00
"2015 release. Shadoks Music presents Jail Sessions from Finish legends, Charlies, recorded in 1969 and 1970. This album was recorded in 1969 and 1970 in Charlies rehearsal room, a "drunk tank" at the local jail. Since Kari Lehtinens father (later on known simply by the nickname, Pitkä) was the local police officer, the band could use this room for playing and recording. After Charlies finished Musiikkia Elokuvasta Julisteiden Liimaajat (SHAD 163LP, 1970), they got a lot of positive feedback, but they never thought the final product sounded right. Pitkä (bass) and Eero (guitars) spent a lot of time considering how to deliver a much harder sounding album as a follow-up, representing the true Charlies spirit. They got the chance to make a new album, Buttocks (1970), which was released by the famous Love Records label. The result again was only as good as the budget resources provided. Although in the end, the album Buttocks gained a good, hard reputation, they were never content with it. One night Pitkä said: "Eero, we should have made our album from your tapes, the result would have been much different." Jail Sessions is a recording from those tapes, the sound the band was happy with. Much heavier in sound, amazing electric guitar, 100% pure heavy underground sound. After 45 years this Charlies album comes out as the band wanted it to sound like with many alternative versions of songs from the Buttocks album and unknown songs as well. 180 gram vinyl. Comes in a heavy sleeve with a printed inner sleeve, a four-page insert and an A2 poster. Edition of 500 (numbered)." - Shadoks.

"One of the most influential bands from Finland are Charlies. They recorded their second album Buttocks in 1970 and also that same year, this first album. Shadoks has included six bonus tracks on this release, including their rare single from 1969. The album was recorded for an underground movie of the same title, and Charlies had full artistic freedom to create psychedelic songs and effects. Their song "Sunshine Supergirl" is a good example of classic work by this amazing underground band, featuring great guitar riffs by Eero Ravi. The original LP was pressed only a few hundred times and is a very rare collectors item today. What a great band and what a great guitar player.

Title: The Hexadic System
Format: Book
Label: Drag City
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"Introducing a new approach to playing and composing music. It doesnt require the use of a computer or an internet hookup; all that the interested player will need is a guitar, a copy of The Hexadic System book -- and a regular deck of playing cards. The struggle of habit is a problem in all walks of life, particularly creative work. We dont always have an instinct to question the systems we are taught -- but consider the old adage about history being written by the winners. What does that imply about the processes with which we learn? Have alternate teachings been discarded over the years, like the lost gospels of the Bible, when their approach to lesson-making was deemed less worthwhile? The greatest value of the Hexadic System is to dissolve the musical structures that have been imposed on the players mind... Composing music without the outer-self, using the tools of games and divination, suggests Ben Chasny, in the text of The Hexadic System. In music, it is generally accepted that perceptions of tonality may vary, depending on where in the world one learns about music (as exemplified by the fundamental differences in western and eastern scales). One of the concerns that led to the writing of The Hexadic System was to proceed from a multimodal understanding available to 21st century musicians, but also to suggest an ordered approach to unfamiliar choices and techniques when composing and playing guitar music. Inspired by explorations in the thought of Ramon Llull, Gaston Bachelard, Heinrich Agrippa, and many other theorists in the various schools of combinatorial and image theory, Chasnys goal was to make a system of his own, addressing the most important form of decision making in his life -- the choices made with his guitar."

Title: Echo Solo
Format: LP
Label: Azoth Schallplatten
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
A vinyl-only release, Beautifully packaged with extensive notes by the composer, Limited edition of 800 copies. "By 1989, downtown legend Rhys Chatham had been fusing art music and punk rock for almost fourteen years and wanted to try his hand at something else. Accordingly, he set out to combine forms using a diverse vocabulary drawn exclusively from the classic avant-garde; the result is Echo Solo. In it, Chatham appropriates a number of musical styles -- serial technique, chance operations, and just intonation -- then through a process of amalgamation and superimposition, he transcends their original musical meaning while at the same time imploding it. Only the tiniest pair of critical scissors could isolate the individual elements from the final product; its a fascinating, paradoxical composition, one which the composer happily describes as "a rite of decimation. As Chatham himself writes: When one tunes a piano in just intonation, it is essentially in one key, the key of 1. La Monte Young tuned his piano in E-flat, owing to the fact that he was originally an alto saxophone player. I used a similar technique, but used C natural as my starting point, for the sake of simplicity. When we tune a piano in this way, however, we are usually very careful to select a strategy of striking a particular set of piano keys in order to stay in the right musical key. In Echo Solo, no such strategy existed. The aleatory and serial techniques used to arrive at the pitch choices completely ignored the tuning of the piano. And it is in this sense that Echo Solo would seem to be a contradiction in terms with respect to the manner in which the piano was tuned. And indeed it is, but it has the happy effect of endowing the piece with a unique sound: it clearly doesnt sound like Young, perhaps a bit more like a strange amalgamation of Cage and Boulez, but out of whack somehow. Something new..."- Azoth Schallplatten.

Title: Pythagorean Dream
Format: CD
Label: Foom
Country: UK
Price: $16.00
“Rhys Chatham returns with his first solo album since 2013, the enchanting Pythagorean Dream. Having studied under Terry Riley and La Monte Young (with whom he later went on to work), Chatham fused the overtone-drenched minimalism of John Cale and Tony Conrad with the relentless, elemental fury of the Ramones. It was an inspired amalgamation -- the textural intricacies of the avant-garde colliding with the visceral punch of electric guitar-slinging punk rock -- and with it Chatham created a new type of urban music. Raucous and ecstatic, this sound energized the New York Downtown scene throughout the late 1970s and early 1980s, prefigured the no wave movement, and cast a huge influence over the subsequent work of Chathams many protégés, including Glenn Branca and future members of Sonic Youth. Primarily focused on the electric guitar (but also featuring flute and a bit of trumpet) this recording is named after the Pythagorean guitar tuning it employs. The recording is a truly solo endeavor, composed, performed, produced, engineered, and mastered solely by Chatham. Chatham began to develop solos that he would play himself, choosing to incorporate the multi-second delay effect pioneered by Terry Riley with two Revox tape machines. Feeling that it tied in with his overall minimalist aesthetic and that the effect (which gives the impression that choirs and choirs of instruments are playing) was fitting as a succession to his 100-guitar idea, Chatham created and layered feedback loops of varying durations using Rileys method in order to create rich, overlapping layers that in practice transcend the limitations of their start and end points, blooming into free-flowing melodies in their own right. "Part One" of Pythagorean Dream opens with a brief trumpet intro, followed by a guitar piece that implements a finger-picking technique (Chatham has long been a fan of this style; John Fahey was one of his teenage musical heroes), before moving to an EBow section and concluding with the fast tremolo flat-picking technique used in the context of his 100-guitar pieces. "Part Two" is principally about Chathams return to the flute, the instrument that sparked his love of contemporary music before he experienced an early Ramones show at CBGB and began focusing on the electric guitar. Pythagorean Dream features Chatham on C, alto, and bass flutes. The recording is brought to a close with a final guitar piece. The CD version include a bonus track recorded at the Whitechapel Gallery in London.” - Foom.

"Primary Information is pleased to announce a new LP by Rhys Chatham. REVE PARISIEN was produced and designed by Chatham in collaboration with the artist Jacob Kassay. The album features four new compositions that were performed live at Kassays exhibition at Art: Concept in Paris in 2010, and loosely functions as an audio catalogue to the exhibition. REVE PARISIEN contains compositions for solo trumpet that were both performed live and used as a soundtrack through Kassays exhibition. These compositions mark a change in direction for Chatham, who has abandoned the trumpet style he developed in the nineties for a non-distorted, less effects-driven sound that compliments his minimalist compositions and his free jazz training. The LP is packaged in a stunning gatefold with an arced die-cut cover, which was designed by Jacob Kassay in collaboration with Frank Napolski. Rhys Chatham is a composer, guitarist, and trumpet player from Manhattan, currently living in Paris. He was the founder of the music program at The Kitchen in downtown Manhattan in 1971 and was its music director between 1971�73 and 1977�80. Chatham studied under, was influenced by, or has collaborated with Maryanne Amacher, Don Cherry, Tony Conrad, Jon Hassell, Charlemagne Palestine, Eliane Radigue, Terry Riley, Frederic Rzewski, Morton Subotnick, Serge Tcherepnin, and La Monte Young, among others. Jacob Kassay, born 1984 in Lewiston, NY, studied at the State University of New York at Buffalo. He currently lives and works between NY and Venice, CA. Kassays practice includes painting, installation and often collaborative works�deployed with an economy of means, and engaged with site specificity of light, space, and time.

"The hour-long Two Gongs fills the entirety of [this] disc with its ethereal, droning psychedelia. While written in 1971, the 89 recording documented here features Chatham, along with fellow composer Yoshimase Wada coaxing heavy, overlapping tones out of a pair of Chinese gongs. The instruments buzz and hum, moving in waves from deafening rattles to soft, muted drones. The monstrous noise that Chatham concocts is far more akin to the seismic crashes of monstrously distorted guitar feedback than that of two unprocessed slabs of metal, and it proves the composers interest in creating a similar world of sound out of whatever instrument currently proved his muse. On disc, the performance is jaw-droppingly powerful, a monumental chunk of glorious noise." - Table Of The Elements.

“After the re-discovery of Tranquil Eyes 1985 Walkscassette in 2012 (OS 015LP) and the 2014 release ofFrozen Ducks work (OS 023LP), OnderStroom Records presents another dazzling project from Lex Grauwen. Cheiron is a collaboration between Grauwen, who plays all the instruments and produced all the music, and José van Waveren, who sings distinctively. Land After Life aims for the dancefloor with its high-energy minimal synth and electro stylings. In the mid-80s Lex Grauwen was asked to participate in the Pas de Deux LP (1985), a legendary new wave compilation album featuring Bene Gesserit, Algebra Suicide, and Psyclones. Grauwen asked his high school sweetheart, José van Waveren, to join up for a few songs. "Land After Life" was chosen for the compilation and, years later, took on a life of its own on the internet. "Serenity World," recorded during the same sessions, is equally spellbinding and beautiful. It was released in an edited mix on the 1987 Lembrasse compilation cassette (Top Tape). The third song recorded, "Finally Free Four," is a previously unreleased solo composition by van Waveren. Grauwen and van Waveren had been making music before, though, and one of those older tracks is "No Trace," from 81-82. Shortly after Pas de Deux, they tried to record some more tracks, but the demos were never really finished. A while later Grauwen asked Paul Oosterbaan of Tranquil Eyes and Ruud Braumullerof Beatnik Love Affair to help finish these tracks. The results are "Your Life, Your Body" (also a van Waveren solo piece) and "Ping Pong," the last recorded track. In the 2000s, van Waveren began performing as singer-songwriter devoted to French chanson.” - Onderstroom.

Title: Pulaski Wave(Violin Halo)/Newtown Creek Mirror Lag
Format: 7"
Label: Pilgrim Talk
Country: USA
Price: $6.00
Violin, sine wave generators, feedback and tape delay (on Side B) Recorded November 2010 on the banks of Newtown Creek in Brooklyn, NY. Edition of 300. "The Pulaski Bridge and Newtown Creek (over which it spans) are regular fixtures in my daily life, geographical features that I move on or over with great frequency. As I developed this system--which i did over very long durations of listening, mostly very late at night or early in the morning--and gradually felt the need to be able to differentiate certain settings from others, it made sense to name them, somewhat arbitrarily, for things that were close at hand.  These systems and intervals had become very familiar to me, and during my long listening sessions in the hours on the edges of sleep, I often had the sensation of them moving from the foreground of my attention to the background and then back again. They became more like a kind of geography or weather than "music"." - Che Chen.

"Che Chen = renaissance man. Producer of the massively beautiful/creative/perfect zine series, O Sirhan, O Sirhan, member of Jozef Van Wissems Heresy of the Free Spirit, half of "now wave" duo, True Primes, (Incidentally, True Primes We Have Won LP is one of my favorite albums EVER of all time. DEEPLY STRANGE sounds, but also MUSICAL in totally new and unexpected ways.No joke - get it.), and now archivist running the Black Pollen label (working with Pauline Oliveros, Eliane Radigue, Yoshi Wada, and Sun Circle thus far). On this 7" Che is working with violin and reel to reel tape machines. Think youve heard it before? No way. Che has cautiously created a tape "accompanist" that interacts with the violins harmonic series in subtle, but tangible ways, often resulting in difference tones and creating a hypnotic violin/electronics hybrid. Now violin wave." - N. Hoffman.

"New York improvisor who works extensively with violin drones, tape delay, feedback and electronics. The sawing is more cracked and fragmentary than Id expected, but it mixes beautifully with the generator drone." - Byron Coley The Wire.

"The Cherry Blossoms are to folk music what the Velvet Underground was to rock n’ roll: anti-commercial, rebellious, pure, and unlike anything else. They deconstruct folk into a a very special experimental music, but they insist they’re a front porch band. Specializing in kazoo, 6-gallon bucket, poetry, carefully awry drum rhythms, guitar, and vocals that span octaves, melodies, and time, the Cherry Blossoms are unforgettable. Lead singer Peggy Snow has said that “No one tries to control what anyone else is doing when we play.” The result is a sound that is ecstatically free, layered, and ranging. While songs like “Amazing Stars” follow a chorus sung together in sweeping, traditional hymn with a few quirks, other songs skip and spaz into a trance awash with unorthodox folkloristic layers. Their sound is at once elusive and timeless (Have I heard this song before?). It’s a sound they’ve been honing for twenty years. The Cherry Blossoms are sure to go down in history as one of the great folk bands of the 21st century. With a rotating cast of 3-8 performers, their line-up has changed over the years, but most recently consists of: Peggy Snow, John Allingham, Chuck Hatcher, Taylor Martin, Chris Davis, and Allen Lowry. Ever eclectic, members of the band are talented in their own rights. Peggy Snow is a prolific painter, John Allingham is finishing a rock-opera 10 years in the making, Allen Lowry writes amazing unconventional poetry and played drums in Lambchop, Chris Davis is an incredible music curator/contributor to the Nashville music community, Chuck Hatcher can rock any Zepplin song in existence… the list goes on and on and on. They are local legends in Nashville and sure to make music history." - Hairy Spider Legs

"At long last, here is the debut LP from The Cherry Blossoms, who describe themselves as "Middle-Tennessees finest anarchic post neo-skiffle collective specializing in kazoo-exotica." They are the musical heirs of Dock Boggs visceral holler; they share the true gut-sung honesty of Bosavi guitar band music; they are a Dixie-fried Arkestra with out-of-tune acoustic guitars replacing every saxophone and a kazoo in place of Sun Ras mellotron. This LP finally brings to proper format their most celebrated and celebratory songs, from interstellar boogie ("Rockin Rocket Ship") to agitational architectural conservation anthem ("Golden Windows"), The Cherry Blossoms offer the OTHER Nashville Sound, the one that a multi-million dollar industry and a million pairs of snakeskin boots will never notice and can never corrupt. With only handmade releases and limited touring, the band has made fans and friends of the likes of Ben Chasny (Six Organs of Admittance), Will Oldham, Josephine Foster, and David Tibet (Current 93). Thats an extremely short list �?? few who have heard the songs and voices of Peggy Snow, John Allingham, and the legion other Cherry Blossoms past and present have been immune to the contagious sound of the most honest band in America." - Black Velvet Fuckere.

"Josephine Foster bravely travelled to Nashville to seek out the legendary southern folk song and cosmic kazoo medicine show known as the Cherry Blossoms. Eventually Josephine did track them down and soon (as one could only dream of...) the sprawling jams did spin and the heartfelt social songs did ring. Josephine stayed on for a nice long spell recording and living among the Cherry Blossoms for a couple weeks. Many months later, I came through Nashville on my annual pilgrimage, and when John Allingham and Peggy Snow (voices and authors of most Cherry Blossoms songs) gave me a cdr documenting their favorite audio snapshots of Josephines visit, I was thrilled to hear how organically Peggy and Johns songs mix with Josephines songs and weave in between and throughout the sprawling backporch Cherry Blossom jams. As usual, the Cherry Blossoms ramshakle eight piece band wheezes and whirs through the skeletons of their compositions, bending time and tone until complete chaos is just around the corner. Then typically, the stoned percussion wizard or the holwing antics of Peggy Snow will eventually shuffle everyone back into place as they begin to charge forward into some frenzy that only Hasil Adkins or Henry Flynt could have dreamt of. This dynamic album manages to cover many of the moods of this complex musical organism. From blue mountain meditations, hard cider country swing, still southern nights with all the windows open, backporch hillbilly hysterics wrap around campfire prayers... you may never get another chance to hear Americana quite like this again." - Skulls of Heaven.

"The subject of Music From Memorys fifth compilation is the elusive and mysterious Philadelphian musician Napoleon Cherry (aka Cool Waters). Oddball funk biz! In the late 80s and early 90s Cherry privately released two LPs and an EP, which form the basis of this retrospective, alongside a previously unreleased cut, "When You Had the Chance," which was released as a 12" in 2015 by US label Peoples Potential Unlimited. Recorded with a very DIY aesthetic and a strong presence of gospel and RnB, Cherrys unique take on soul and funk music reflects a rawness that stands in contrast to the slick, over-produced soul of that era. With appearances by jazz musicians including the late celebrated saxophonist Byard Lancaster, who coincidentally also played with MFMs previous compilation subject Vito Ricci (MFM 005LP), Cherrys music seems to defy any clear categorization. From cocktail jazz funk to intergalactic synth workouts to melancholy bedroom soul, his use of synths and drum computers, though perhaps unknowingly, also seems to strongly echo elements of early house music." - Music From Memory.

Format: LP
Label: Planam
Country: Italy
Price: $26.00
The 20 years-old young David Chesworth experiments with the gigantic Serge synth that occupies half the room of the Latrobe University electronic studio. On the traces of pioneers such as Tristram Cary or Warren Burt, a new avant-garde is blooming in Sidney and Melbourne with bands like Severed Heads, The Makers, The Loop Orchestra, and the like. David Chesworth will soon play a major role by coordinating the Clifton Hill Community Music Centre in Melbourne, by co-founding the cult label Innocent Records and by playing in acts such as Essendon Airport, The Dave And Phil Duo, → ↑ →, as well as conducting a solo career. He would later become one of the leading figures in contemporary sculpture and sound installation in Australia and abroad and a recognized and awarded composer with his The David Chesworth Ensemble. His first solo LP titled 50 Synthesizer Greats! was released in 1979 and recorded in the same period as the LP presented here. While his first LP is a compilation of very short and eclectic tracks, "Five Evolutionary Things 79" and "The Unattended Serge 78" are structured as suites. Drawing skeletons for pop tunes to come, these minimal electronic pieces are at times very experimental but never brutal, reminding of the best moments of Udder Milk Decays Take a Teat or sharing the apparent naïve melancholia of Harmonias Musik Von Harmonia. Hints of elegant musique concrète à la François Bayle can be heard, but also out of space blip-beats, as if Pietro Grossi or Erkki Kurenniemi went groovy. This beautiful, unknown gem of ozzy underground is now available for your ears in an edition limited to 300 copies.” - Planam.

Title: Bum
Format: LP

Country: France
Price: $16.00
"Cheveu has now reached album #3, and since they totally fucked up the first two steps, theres nothing surprising in seeing them come back at full speed on a countryside road stuck in a beat-up van on fire, with Bum, their most incredible piece of work to date. After a quick introduction (the promising but sketchy Cheveu [BORNBAD 010LP]), the Parisian trio blew up on the worlds face with their second LP, 1000 (BORNBAD 032CD), a record thrown at the bored masses in full ragged glory. Cheveu now enters 2014 heavy-hearted and red-eyed, just like those wrecks of humanity blinded by the lights at closing time, their misery, bad skin and unachieved schemes exposed before dawn. Cheveu built its third LP on the ashes of those unholy hours, around the majestic "Polonia," a track on which David Lemoine recites a few lines from Bertrand Bliers Buffet Froid with the set expression of a man empowered by the fact he just shit his pants, while Etienne Nicolas and Olivier Demeaux slowly unwind the rapturous scenery of a theologian Western. The song is beautiful, grotesque, heart-rending -- just like a scene out of Jean Rays Malpertuis backed by a funeral choir of angel-witches, and is definitely one of the most amazing things youll hear this year. Bum, just like "Polonia," is an inner trip, an odyssey bordered by the walls of an antique mansion, full of baroque embroidery and padded club chairs, the perfect aural counterpart for the paintings of Rousseau. Cheveus third record is full-on excess and absurdity, but is also much more legible and effective than their previous efforts. This time, the band opted for a much more live-based, organic and fully-produced sound, replacing 1000s messy cut-ups and Cheveus shitgaze blur by throbbing organs and wall-of-sound choirs. The result : 10 tracks drier and sharper than anything Cheveu has done before, definitely out-of-this-world but elegantly mannered." - Born Bad.

"A couple years ago, S-S had the pleasure of turning the record freak world onto CHEVEU with their Dog 7-inch, followed by the Tete de Bebe comp LP. The label also helped dement the world by distroing their next two singles and putting out their split 7-inch with Tyvek. And now they are very very very happy to present this Parisian trios debut album, simply titled Cheveu. This dad is chock full of these Frenchmens unique take on punk rock & electro, kind of like a bastard mating of Trio, Stockhausen, and King Coleman-or at least that challenging. But Cheveu dont lose the song in their experimentation. You can even dance to these numbers. Limited edition pressing of 600 copies with silkscreened sleeves."-S-S Records

Price: $20.00
"2008 release. After two 7"s applauded by the blogosphere, and after receiving praise from renowned underground critics like Jay Hinman, Doug Mosurak and Byron Coley, Cheveu is invited to the big convention of garage rock in Memphis, Gonerfest in 2006, headlining the party with the likes of Jay Reatard, Jack Oblivian and Viva Lamerican Death Ray. Kevin from Pink Reason says hes seen one of the best shows of his life. They embark on a West Coast tour set up by DJ Rick (Expé Honzo) with Tyvek and play with A Frames, The Intelligence and Eat Skulls (S-S Records released a Cheveu/Tyvek 7" split for the tour). Then, trying to pull together three years of home-recorded tracks, Cheveu releases its first LP in March 2008. Cheveu has been called the harbingers of the current shit/pop/gaze movement that includes such different bands as Tyvek, Pink Reason, Times New Viking and TV Ghost. They have also been tagged "glue wave," (a French rock movement) "weird-punk," "art-damaged pop," and also "shit-gaze." Some see that theyve contributed a lot to the movement from a more classic garage sound to a more free/experimental and noise music in the U.S., managing to produce noise without fucking up amps or guitars. All songs have been home-recorded using superimposed live/not live takes, creating a kind of real/old/current feeling. Some see a Metal Urbain/Wire/The Fall influence." - Born Bad.

Title: +/-
Format: LP + CD
Label: Die Schachtel
Country: Italy
Price: $60.00
"LP+CD special limited edition release by Fluxus composer Giuseppe Chiari and Futurist pianist Daniele Lombardi. Each LP is hand-numbered, and contains two art prints by Giuseppe Chiari, housed in a very original fold-out cover. The CD is hand-numbered and signed by Daniele Lombardi. The total selling copies of the bundle edition are limited to 130. Giuseppe Chiari was one of the leading names associated first with Fluxus (being the only Italian member of the interdisciplinary art group since 1962) and later with conceptual and performance art as well as sound art. Coming from a background of different disciplines, he established new theoretical and practical standpoints in relation to music and art: his approach was always irreverent, walking the tightrope between to do or not to do, to say or not to say, while continually challenging the limits of language. The Die Schachtel vinyl LP (titled +/-) features some of his previously-unreleased and most intense pieces for piano, the musical instrument par excellence and emblem of conformist sound with which Giuseppe Chiari has a love-hate relationship, bestowing on it equal measures of ridicule and praise. It is also an amazing document of his last concert, with Frederic Rzewski (playing the 1964 groundbreaking piece "La Strada"), Giancarlo Cardini, Daniele Lombardi and Giuseppe Chiari himself. The limited CD edition by Daniele Lombardi, published on the occasion of his solo exhibition at MUDIma Foundation in Milan (2008), is the reissue of a 1978 piano sound exploration entitled Costellazione, based upon a map of sky constellations, planned as the first step in a large work focused on the exposition and "performance" of constellations maps, planetaria and maps of the heavens. It is a perfect counterpoint to the Chiari Edition, and it is housed in a custom-made, silk-screened natural cardboard case, inserted in the fold-out cover together with the LP. " - Die Schachtel.

Format: Double LP
Label: Editions Mego
Country: Austria
Price: $31.00
"Anthony Child, AKA Surgeon, presents the second volume of recordings of Buchla Music Easel recorded in the jungle of Maui. Again, Childs is in a more ambient guise and setting, as the calm breath of the jungle sets a real time back-drop for his electronic explorations. There is no additional layering and all environmental sounds simply "occurred" throughout the improvisations. The range on display veers from melodic drones to sparkling arpeggios all revolving around a thick bed of electronic (Buchla) and acoustic (environmental) interplay. "Nine Personality Type Map" hovers on a bed of syncopated rhythms whilst the nearby sonic mist of the forest seethes in-and-out of the frame whilst "A Nightfall Of Diamonds" provides a sonic analogy for the darkness and light contradiction that occurs only in such rich natural environments. The simultaneous acts of improvising, listening and creating provide a rich setting for the curious listener. Another gem in a catalog filled with gold. Recorded in Haiku-Pauwela, Maui between February 3rd and 14th of 2016." - Editions Mego.

"Alone Together is the debut release from Childrens Hospital. If their despondent sounds remind you of something you may have once heard its because this is the latest project from the A-Frames/Intelligence/Rodent Plague/afcgt axis. Reminiscent of the brooding and gray skyline of their hometown of Seattle the duo hover between abstract soundscape compositions, Jandek inspired bouts of melancholy droned out dementia, and stripped apart abrasive punk...often combining several of these forms at once.

"Though they only released one 45 during their existence, Children of the Mushroom epitomized the psychedelic garage sound coming out of California in the late 60s. Formed in Thousand Oaks by Jerry McMillen and Dennis Swanson, they evolved from a mid-60s teen-beat band called The Captives. In 1967, they became Children of the Mushroom, a name which reflected their new psychedelic sound and image. The following year, they caught the attention of a couple of young producers, who signed the band for a 45 release. Recorded in 1968 for Soho Records, August Mademoiselle/You Cant Erase a Mirror is one of the masterpieces from the first psychedelic era: feedback, fuzz, organ, and mysterious vocals. Soon after, the band incorporated a new guitar player, shortened their name to The Mushroom and started playing in a more heavy psych vein, in a similar style to Iron Butterfly. This retrospective album includes both tracks from their monster 45, with sound taken from the master recordings, plus previously unreleased tracks by The Mushroom, recorded in 1968. These are raw, lo-fi home recordings with lots of fuzz guitar and organ. Its the sound of a psychedelic band in 1968 playing free and wild, without any producer or record label executive telling them what to do. An incredible document. Remastered sound. Fold-out colour insert with liner notes, interview with the band members, and rare photos." - Out-Sider.

Price: $13.50
"Songs From The Source is a lost-and-found 1973 recording of The Source family. These twelve songs were recorded live in the Hollywood Hills as a rehearsal for a concert date that Spirit of 76 -- aka YaHoWaH 13, The Savage Sons of YaHoWa, Yodship, and FireWaterAir, now known as Children of the Sixth Root Race -- had at the Whisky. A 1/4" tape copy of the recording was found in Chicago in 2006, though no one is really sure how it got there. Djin Aquarian, rhythm guitarist and songwriter for Spirit of 76, recalls being sent on a mission to Chicago later in 1973, where he believes he left the tape with an old friend. Djin wrote most of the songs in the year before he joined with The Source, as part of his solo mystical quest to help enlighten the world before it might annihilate itself, adding, Im glad both the album and the world are still here. Though this rehearsal wasnt meant to be released at the time, there are probably no other recordings as complete of the band doing these songs. The Spirit of 76 had a different sound than the one YaHoWaH 13 made with Yahowa. Songs From The Source has more rnb-grooved energy, with splashes of synth and organ, a female vocal chorus and streamlined fusion rhythms backing the uniquely Yahowan lyrical populism of songs like Godmen and Lost Dead But Hoping. The ebullient, ever-climbing power of the climactic We Are the Dinosaurs, has few analogues in the other Source recordings and is furthermore an outstanding piece of music from the entire era. Songs From The Source is a miraculous missing piece of The Sources positive musical movement. The members of YaHoWaH 13 (Djin, Sunflower on bass, Octavius on drums) were joined by family members Ahom, Aquariana, Cinderella, Rhythm, Vibration, and Zoroaster on lead guitar, to create the ecstatic sound of Spirit of 76. In summing up, Djin told us, I know Father is behind this redeeming of the Spirit of 76 album and up to his old tricks again... Yahowha." -Drag City

Title: Sound of the Westway
Format: LP
Label: Slumberland/Mississippi
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Chin Chin, an all-female group, was formed in 1982 in Biel, Switzerland. At the time experience wasnt needed, a desire to play was. Technical ability was a bonus, a hunger to perform a must. Musically, the band had many influences: The Clash, The Ramones, X-Ray Spex, Blondie, Generation X, Siouxsie & The Banshees, David Bowie, Motown, 1960s girl groups and glam rock bands like T-Rex and Slade. Although Chin Chin saw themselves as a punk rock band, catchy pop vocals and harmonies played a big part in their songs, setting them apart from their contemporaries. Chin Chins first and only 7-inch We Dont Wanna Be Prisoners was released in the summer of 1984 on the bands label Farmer Records, making Chin Chin one of the only all-female bands in Switzerland writing their own material, playing regular gigs and releasing records. In 1985, Sound of the Westway was released on Farmer, containing twelve original compositions recorded and mixed in just seven days. Its a brilliant mix of punk-informed crunch and buoyant pop melody that shows Chin Chin to be true pioneers of DIY noisy pop. After a hugely successfu German tour with The Shop Assistants, the band released the Stop Your Crying EP on Scotlands legendary 53rd and 3rd label. Sound of the Westway has gone on to become one of the most sought-after 80s indie-pop records and for good reason. Tunes like "Dark Days" and "Stay With Me" still sound remarkably fresh today; the bands fierce DIY stance and girl-positive ethics have echoed down through indie music since. Slumberland is very pleased to join the estimable Mississippi Records in bringing this classic album back into print, on vinyl only and with new mastering and artwork.

Title: River of Shit
Format: 7"

Country: USA
Price: $6.50
"Like a child captured by wolves, the Chinese Restaurants might live in New York City, but they really dont have a home. Though their roots are the Tucson, Arizona garage punk scene (home of the Fells!), LF Restaurant (AKA Acapulco Rodriguez) and Keith Restaurant (ne Redgerson) started the band long distance, from posts in Albany, New York and rural Connecticut. With Keiths 11 year old Garfield-loving brother on drums, they threw song ideas over the phone and would play impromptu shows -- often without rehearsing -- including one via conference call. (When playing over 21 venues the Restaurants recruited Bunnybrains genius Malcolm Tent to play drums.) Of course, the sound was pure chaos, but over time and with infusions of American underground sounds like Beefheart, the Sun City Girls, and various Euro art pranksters the Restaurants started to find themselves. A name change to The North American Free Jazz Agreement lead to a Euro tour and an opening slot for Arthur Doyle. And it should probably be expected that the next step for our Restaurants was to reemerge as a grotesque, sexually inappropriate Doors cover band. Come 2010 and the Chinese Restaurants are finally committing themselves to vinyl. With the help of sonic saboteur Mattin (Billy Bao, Josetxo Grieta, NMM), the Restaurants created River of Shit, an underground state of the state of the nation of sorts. A deft commentary on the Age of Obama or just another smart ass prank, we dont know, but it sounds good. And the flip of Work is a Drag and Queen of the Skanks is a skanking sludge fest that would do both Flipper and No Trend proud. S.S. is very happy to say that we served the first helping of Chinese Restaurants." - SS.

2012 release. "The electrification of K.S. Chithra and Kollywood pop! Known by adoring fans and devotees, throughout South India, as Chinna Kuyil (trans. "Little Nightingale") on account of her expansive vocal range and crystalline, sweet voice, the uplifting and surprising sound of K.S. Chithra is, for many, best exemplified by the early plugged-in-pop she made in the 1980s with the man/machine who first introduced her to the Tamil film industry, Maestro Ilaiyaraaja. There are few records you will hear that combine the sounds of a childs choir, a DX7 bass line, three types of drum machines, a mariachi trumpet cry, a re-sampled 40-piece orchestra and an electronic bass line that takes the Moog Taurus by the horns and rides into the Indian summer. There is probably less chance of hearing a vocal performance so confusingly dazzling that it instantly detracts from the previously aforementioned wish-list combination of bizarre instruments, but for those intrepid enough to dig a little deeper and take a detour due East, pick-axing right where Lollywood meets Bollywood -- then prepare to be rewarded with a double, triple and quadruple whammy! This compilation focuses on a small and select handful of Chithra and Ilaiyaraajas developing collaborations from the formative years of their relationship between -- 1986 and 1991 -- a vibrant time where analog recording techniques and digital technology first overlapped and Chithra, as a developing vocalist, adapted to the sounds and arrangements of a classic maverick composer pushing the boundaries." - Finders Keepers.

Format: Double LP

Country: Netherlands
Price: $45.00
250 pressed but only 150 available for sale (the other 100 going to the estate, collaborators, Chopin archive, etc..). Originally issued in 1978 on cassette by Balsam Flex. "Balsam Flex was a cassette label run by the artist Erik Vonna-Michell in the late 1970s and early 1980s, and evidence of a relatively overlooked moment when a number of London-based British poets were producing work that was influenced by performance art, conceptual art, sound art, text-sound composition, Fluxus, and situationism. One of their most impressive release is Oh: Audiopoems, by the legendary Henri Chopin, a collection of his work from 1958 to 1979. Henri Chopin was a key figure of the French avant-garde during the second half of the 20th century. Towards the end of the second world war, Henri Chopin, who has died aged 85, escaped from a forced labour camp in Olomouc, in what is now the Czech Republic, after it had been bombed. He then spent time with the advancing Red Army, until, recaptured by the Germans, he and inmates of concentration and extermination camps were sent west on a Nazi "death march".

In the 1950s Henri created sound poetry, capturing breaths and cries made by his voice and body. He was, said his friend William Burroughs, an "inner space explorer", but the Frenchman remained a solitary figure, outside any artistic grouping, almost the only exponent of his art, and almost certainly the only poet to record sounds and movements by swallowing a microphone.

Known primarily as a concrète and sound poet, he created a large body of pioneering recordings using early tape recorders, studio technologies and the sounds of the manipulated human voice. His emphasis on sound is a reminder that language stems as much from oral traditions as from classic literature, of the relationship of balance between order and chaos.

Title: Revue OU
Format: 4CD/Book
Label: Alga Marghen
Country: Italy
Price: $112.00
"Alga Marghen proudly presents a new edition of the already historical Chopins Revue OU. All the original contents (4CDs + book + complete inserts) have also been included here, but presented now in a more modern and flexible way. The first press heavy boxset had been substituted with a lighter and colour slipcase while many important details and info about the contents of this anthology (missing in the original layout) are presented on a new colour obi." Incredible that this has been reissued again, at a slightly cheaper cost even! Miraculously over-the-top presentation of Henri Chopins famous sound-poetry "magazine", issued on 4CDs (or 6 LPs -- a few copies of the original LP reissue box still available). "Since the end of the fifties, Henri Chopin, an explorer in the new recorded sound poetry field, has never ceased, through hid own work as well as through his publishing activities (Revue OU, a magazine with record from 1963 to 1974) to defend the electronic exploration of the voice and the body. If Henri Chopins Revue OU is such a remarkable publication, then this is surely because it is one of the truly -- and most authentically -- contemporary publications of its time. Yet at first sight, the word contemporary seems to offer a rather simplistic description of such a visionary publication as Chopins OU. When we consider in the general cultural context of the sixties, for example, arent all mid-century art publications generally contemporary in one way or another? And when considered in terms of most other poetry publications of the sixties, doesnt Chopins OU clearly stand out as one of the most significant experimental or avant-garde publications of the mid-century? As Chopin observes, he considered the sound poetry published on the records in OU to be a distinctively new form of art. On one hand sound poetry constitutes an almost archetypal practice, but on the other hand sound poetry also emerges from the very sources of recording technology by means of its use of electro-magnetics. As this collection of CDs (remastered under the supervision of Henri Chopin) reissuing the complete Revue OU records indicates, Chopins most striking achievement was to consistently identify and publish the first major works of many of the most visionary transatlantic artists exploring the new recording technologies of the fifties, sixties and seventies. Far from attempting to establish any monodimensional movement, Chopin characteristically championed a wide veriety of those poets, writers and composers whom he perceived to be in movement, and whom he subsequently applauds as Fabulous Independents. Following an editorial logic of selectively eclectic inclusion, Chopins OU records published an astonishing diversity of inter-generational and international experiments. These include intense electronic readings by William Burroughs and Brion Gysin; pioneering optophonetic works by the Dadaist Raoul Hausmann; crirythmes and vocalic improvisations by François Dufrene and Gil J Wolman; fragmentary poemes-partitions by Bernard Heidsieck; high-tech text-sound works by composers such as Ake Hodell and Sten Hanson; electronic abstractions by Bengt Emil Johnson; phonetic poems by Mimmo Rotella; handy tech performances on self-built electronic instruments by Hugh Davies; haunting tape-manipulations by Ladislav Novak; playful improvisations by Bob Cobbing with Anna Lockwood; dramatic monologues by Paul de Vree; electronic concrete music by Jacques Bekaert and -- of course -- Chopins dynamic orchestrations of the bodys factory of corporeal sounds. Chopins writings equally consistently championed the electronic language revolution facilitated by what he describes as technological means which extend the human body, thereby inaugurating an enormous expansion of human expression. Many manifestos and theoretical texts, as well as original photos, have been published in a 76 page book. Also included are 30 fold-out black and white OU inserts reproducing the original scores of the audio works featured on the 4 CDs (by Chopin, Heidsieck, de Vree, Davies, Cobbing, Bekaert) as well as graphic works by John Cage, Tom Phillips, Arrigo Lora-Totino, Michel Seuphor, Ben Vautier, Stefan Themerson, Richard Orton, Pierre Albert-Birot." - Alga Marghen.

Price: $27.00
"A huge seventeen-minute blast kicks off side one with Gamelan-inspired percussion and metallic drones. The rich and expansive sound feels like the scouts of a storm have amassed with invisible bodies among the bones of a weathered shipyard. Warm tones ebb in cycles, while the percussion thins and a strangled horn blasts a Fire-styled cry. Vocals holler at a ghostly distance. Chimes and cymbals are met with thudding, hard wooden knocks. The end draws near with elongated guitar tones that add a sense of arid landscape to what originally feels like a nautical storm. Violent, caustic, organic noise and improvised calamity. Instruments twist and arch in suffocating formations." -Chironex

Title: Empty Airport
Format: LP
Label: Editions Mego
Country: Austria
Price: $21.00
"The title of Empty Airport, Chras second LP and her first on Editions Mego, may be read as a reference to Brian Enos ambient classic, though this time we find ourselves in a territory of transit that sounds like a dystopian swan song on civilizatoric debris -- a heterotopia emptied of human remains, with only ghostly echoes behind. Chra aka comfortzone foundress Christina Nemec has traced out a post-anthropocene area in which acoustic entries of field recordings are stratified in layers of deconstructed noisescapes. Partly interspersed with clunky technoid basslines, an introspective space is opened, which excavates in a discreet and subtle manner layers of abandoned wasteland. Nemec, who is a member of various projects including Shampoo Boy (together with Peter Rehberg and Christian Schachinger) and the female berserker formation SV Damenkraft, has succeeded in producing a significant LP that merges dark techno and industrial with found sounds and ambient scapes, resulting in a compositoric minimalism that ushers us into a state of existential trance. Recorded and produced by Christina Nemec in Vienna and Hornerwald, 2012-2014. Additional mixing on "Abandoned House" by Christian Fennesz. Guitar on "Soca Valley" by Christian Schachinger, recorded at Twisted, Vienna. Mastered and cut at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin, 2015. Artwork by Susi Klocker." - Editions Mego.

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.

Title: Chinese Restaurant
Format: LP
Label: Medical
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"A seminal album by Italian new wave duo Chrisma, the absolutely essential Chinese Restaurant has not been available on vinyl format in over 30 years. Chrisma is made up of husband and wife team Maurizio Arcieri and Christina Moser (the name comes from the first letters of each of their names). The record was first recorded in 1977 and originally released that same year by Polydor. It was produced, and arranged, and contains musical contributions by Niko Papathanassiou (brother of the famous Vangelis Papathanassiou responsible for the timeless Blade Runner score). Chinese Restaurant is a very unique record blending the best elements of synth-punk, Neu!-esque prog jams, and new wave into a hybrid of sheer perfection. From the post-punk energy of the single, Black Silk Stocking to the jagged hooks of What For and the analog warbling synths of Mandoia, this futuristic slab of wax is a classic. This reissue was licensed directly from the artists, and it includes a reworking of the original front and back cover artwork. Presented on high-quality 180gm orange vinyl in a hand-numbered limited edition of 500 copies." - Medical Records.

"Spittle Records presents a reissue of Chinese Restaurant by Italian new wave duo Chrisma, originally released in 1977. The album was recorded between London and Milano during the second half of 1977, and the results were something like post-punk. More in the direction of bands such as Ultravox, The Stranglers, and Suicide than the Sex Pistols and the Ramones, due to the use of electronic keyboards, obsessive rhythms, tense harmonies, and scratching vocals emerging from generally dark sound textures. Chinese Restaurant was definitely ahead of its time, especially in terms of Italian rock. Housed in a gatefold sleeve." - Spittle.

Country: USA

"Hibernation is the spectacular follow-up to the Chinese Restaurant LP and was recorded in 1978 and was originally released in 1979 on Polydor. This record has not been available on vinyl for over 30 years and tends to fetch rather high prices on the collectors market. The songs are restrained yet explorative and passionate. The opening track Calling takes the listener down a quirky new wave path riddled with angular guitars and random bits of analog beeps. The stand out track is certainly Gott Gott Electron which is an intoxicating dancefloor slow cosmic jam which will leave a permanent involuntary imprint to the lucky who hear it. As a whole, the record is reflective of the passion between Maurizio and Christina and is a new wave masterpiece on many levels. Aurora B and Lover further display the intense emotional interplay. This reissue was licensed directly from the artist, and the front and back artwork have been re-interpreted and re-invisioned. This is presented on high quality 180 gram clear vinyl (similar to a limited pressing in 1979) in a hand-numbered limited edition of 500 copies." - Medical Records.

Title: Hibernation
Format: LP

Country: Italy
Price: $21.00
"In the Italian panorama of the 70s, Chrisma (Christina Moser and Maurizio Arcieri) skirted the common rules of Italian pop (the aura of progressive rock or the first wave of prolific folk singers); in fact, they created Italian new wave from scratch. After the release of their 1977 debut album Chinese Restaurant (SPITTLE 051LP) -- so far from the punk revolution and so deep into the algid dynamics of the Mittel-European sound -- came Hibernation, their creative peak on which they embrace the revelation of the man-machine and venture into the realms of incomparable robots Kraftwerk. Again the album was produced by Niko Papathanassiou (brother of the Greek legend Vangelis), and it features very sophisticated cover artwork created by famous photographer Mario Convertino. Chrisma, so far ahead of their time, crafted an opus that should be considered at the same emotional level as the most famous synth-pop bands from the UK and Germany. Highlights include "Vetra Platz," a long digital ride worthy of the most famous Kraftwerk singles; "Calling" and "Gott Gott Electron," a primeval couplet of furious post-punk numbers; and the lush "Lover," with Miss Moser still in top form. This reissue includes the original artwork with a silver background. RIYL: T. Rex, Nico, Kraftwerk." - Spittle.

His most recent solo endeavor however embodies a song writer deeply involved with his own vision of sound, resulting in an accomplishment strong enough to stand on its own. Matt delivers a longing and emotional outreach through Honeymoonss six delicate songs and immersing into them provides a feeling of understanding and affiliation that turns solitude into a state of awareness and insight. The sparse instrumentation of broad guitar/effects and incisive drum machine adds immediacy to this recording and the airy arrangements keep the perfect balance between song structure, free-form playfulness and silence. Accompanied by Matts echoing voice and personal lyrics, his recipe is being formed and dilated into an experience that requires devotion to be fully perceived and appreciated. "Im See Through" may be the protagonists self-perception but by guiding his compositions through foggy, pliant tone constellations he leaves us in doubt that Matts output could ever be considered transparent. Honeymoons, his first album for Miasmah, is a perfect reminder of how interfering contradictions can make the most interesting installations. The confrontation of organic guitar movements, stirring poetry and patterns of beat arrangements create fascinating tension: Honeymoonss full scale wont unfold instantly but you will be captivated right away. The listener is allowed a deeply moving glance into a contemplative musicians mind by witnessing an outstanding statement for imparting the feeling of companionship." - Miasmah.

STEFAN CHRISTENSEN has been a staple in the New Haven, CT scene for the last decade, playing in, among many others, ESTROGEN HIGHS, EHRGEIZIG, PERMANENT FEELS and MEDICATION; recording Sex, Worn Leather, Pieces of Fruit; collaborating on the C/Site label and with the venue Popeyes Garage. And while it would seem that Stefan has always lived a sharks life—Ill drown if I stop swimming—it is really only in the last year that he has entered his most prolific phase. All that other stuff has been… practice? In the prior twelve months, Stefan has released two full lengths and a pair of EPs on cassette via the esteemed labels Loki, Night People, and C/Site. American Pastoral Again is the debut vinyl outing from this eponymous artist issued by ever/never records. Channeling Gate, Jim Shepard, Crystalized Movements, and Shakey himself, the twelve minute title track consumes the entire A-side in a melancholic dirge. It is backed by four quick blasts that introduce elements of pop, noise, and more dirge. With varied approaches, Stefans songs are written from a unique and developed voice. A unifying thread through these works is the careful craftsmanship, each song tailored perfectly—knowing when to let it breathe, when to ramp up tension—for the most impact. Had Stefan cut his teeth in a more insular scene, in a more glamorous town, hed have been a hitmaker, but we are thankful that was not the case. As American Pastoral Again demonstrates, he is onto something much more fulfilling and unforgettable." - Ever/Never.
