For thirty years hes been dancing a mighty few steps ahead of the rest of us, and now this book shows us why or all his imposture as a rock star, Genesis has always been something else, an artist."

Artist: P-ORRIDGE, GENESIS & STAN BINGO
Title: Whats History
Format: LP
Label: Dais
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"Originally released as a cassette on the cryptic Austrian tape label, Nekrophile, in 1983, this simplistic experimental recording was a industrial classic ahead of its time.  Recorded in 1981 in the Hackney bedroom of Genesis P-Orridge, who at this point was romping through his final months in seminal industrial act Throbbing Gristle. Done as a spur of the improvisational moment, Genesis was accompanied by then TG documentarian Stan Bingo (a.k.a. director Dan Landin) to try out some new equipment and spun into a unplanned composition.  This original recording, due to the scarcity of its original format was somewhat forgotten, only to be coveted by collectors.  This vinyl LP is an authorized reissue by both artists and limited to 500 copies." -Dais.

Title: Inweglos
Format: CD
Label: Absurd
Country: Greece
Price: $13.00
"Little by little, the musical career of Ralf Wehowsky is unfolded on CD, either his work with P16.D4 or its predecessor PD. Some of these works were released as EaRLyW, simple because Wehowsky (aka RLW) was the main man behind P16.D4 and PD, but here as PD. The band included members such as RLW, Jochen Pense, Joachim Stender and Achim Szepanski. PD recorded Inweglos LP, but also a 7" and a flexidisc - the latter are not included in this release, for reasons I dont know. In some of these tracks PD is shown as a typical Neue Deutsche Welle band: finding their own form within rock music based on punk and new wave but in a more alternative form and as always with German lyrics. PD use to quite an extensive part synthesizers and rhythmboxes, along with bass guitars, guitars and vocals. At times they sound like a very free form improv band and at other times a more rock version of the early Der Plan, but without so much of humour involved in Der Plan. PD is much more political (see Ayatollah Carter) and also more dark in their lyrics - save for some hints towards disco in Progressive Disco. Some of the material forecasts the later P16.D4 work, such as in the semi cut-up of Kurzzug Nach Frankfurt, but in general fits the 1980 sound very well: distorted, free form music, taking punk and new wave in a much wider field of music. Maybe I didnt play the LP in many years, but the renewed appearance is for sure a good one. It was indeed one of those more obscure classics waiting to be re-issued." - FdW.

Title: Music from The Sherman Box Series and Other Works
Format: CD
Label: Amish
Country: USA
Price: $14.50
"The Sherman Box Series was an exhibition of visual artist Christine Krol at Abaton Gallery, Jersey City, NJ in August/September 2005. She showed an ongoing series of collages constructed in Nat Sherman cigarette boxes, as well as small paintings on wood panels. P.G. Sixs contribution to the show was seven pieces for folk harps and electronic processing that played on a loop in the space. These pieces explore some of the sonic possibilities of the wirestrung harp with its long sustaining tones, and the bray harp, with its sitar-like buzzing." - Amish.

Title: Parlor Tricks and Porch Favorites
Format: CD
Label: Amish
Country: USA
Price: $13.50
"This record mixes late 60s / early 70s pastoral English folk influences, rural American blues, and Appalachian mountain music. Parlor Tricks and Porch Favorites recalls the finer moments of the Incredible String Bands The Hangmans Beautiful Daughter and the beautiful weirdness of Kevin Ayers Shooting At the Moon. The record also contains a cover of 60s English folkie Anne Briggs "Go Your Way." PG SIX is Pat Gubler, founding member of New Yorks enigmatic musical collective Tower Recordings. Tim Barnes (Quakebasket Records, Tower Recordings, Jim ORourke) plays percussion and engineers the record." - Amish.

Title: Slightly Sorry
Format: LP
Label: Drag City
Country: USA
Price: $13.50
"Pat Gubler (aka P.G. Six) came on the scene in 1994, as a member of Memphis Luxure, a noise/rock band from Port Chester, NY. That band morphed into Tower Recordings, a musically omnivorous ensemble that released several albums on the Siltbreeze and Communion labels over the past decade. Pats first solo album, Parlor Tricks and Porch Favorites saw the light of day in 2001, followed by The Well of Memory in 2004. Music from the Sherman Box Series, a collection of instrumentals, arrived in late 2006. His music fuses an unlikely range of influences including 60s British folk, country rock, & experimental music. On Slightly Sorry, in addition to the Anglo-Irish quasi-folk influences, you get some Garth Hudson attempts, some Roger McGuinn-izations, the odd Crazy Horse-ism and a pretty nifty cover of a song by Youngbloods pal Jeffrey Cain (note there is a near-approximation of some Dave Schramm-ittude on that Cain number - not really but kinda. Okay, maybe not). After all influences have been calculated, the roots-informed, detail-obsessed, defiantly handspun sound - and the transcendently glossy results of such alchemy, make the truth about P.G. Six." - Drag City. CD also available.

Title: Starry Mind
Format: CD
Label: Drag City
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"A half-dozen records down the road, P.G. Six is a long way from the rustic home of his debut, Parlor Tricks and Porch Favorites. Starry Mind picks up the tale with a fully electrified Celtic traditional and dances lightly forward, with guitar lines chiming and entwining above while drums and bass deliver thumping kicks below. Pat P.G. Six Gubler is still enmeshed in the mystic and the unknowable even as he feels and knows the fullness of his rock phase. Applying everything he has learned to this latest passage, he relaxes as he dissolves his latest epistles into the fresh, clean, communal air." - Drag City.

Title: The Well of Memory
Format: CD
Label: Amish
Country: USA
Price: $13.50
"Continuing many of the themes introduced on Parlor Tricks and Porch Favorites, PG Sixs well-received first record, The Well Of Memory makes nods towards 60s folk artists like Bert Jansch, Pentangle, Incredible String Band, and John Fahey, while also fitting in with contemporary musicians like New York psych folk poster-boy Devendra Banhardt, Anglo-folk traditionalist Alasdair Roberts, and West Coast psych guitarist Ben Chasny of Six Organs of Admittance. Pats lyrics draw on narrative force, spinning mythology in abstract patterns that stretch moments of clarity between dreamlike sequences. His music, composed away from the bustle of the city in upstate New York, breathes as solemn spirituals. With The Well of Memory, P.G. Six transcends revival carving a permanent spot amongst contemporary singer/songwriters." - Amish.

"LP version. This is the highly-anticipated second full-length release on Fonal Records from Finlands Paavoharju, a collective formed around two brothers -- Lauri and Olli Ainala and their troupe of associates. The group is a collective project of ascetic born-again Christians.

Backwards pianos, backwards vocals, tilted organ and baroque beats lean against sweeping operatic soundscapes and gossamer back-porch folk singalongs. Leena Uotilas soft voice echoes in empty, dusty rooms. Cat-owls gather to the skies, apple trees are blooming and waves rock a barrel against the pier.

This second edition is pressed on 140g virgin vinyl with pro-printed cover art in an edition of only 250 copies... Memories playing tricks: oh, the gauzy hallucinogens of nostalgia are sloughing off fresh fictions throughout this deeply passionate instrumental collection. Padang Food Tigers attempt to resurrect half-remembered dreams on their debut long player, Born Music, by hybridizing improvisational tactics with the trappings of traditional tropes. Influenced by artists such as Scott Tuma, Taku Sugimoto, Loren Connors, Bruce Langhorne Boxhead Ensemble and Tetuzi Akiyama, the groups two members (Stephen Lewis and Spencer Grady) seek to capture the potency of moment, free from all artifice and studied consciousness, enveloped in the players close fraternal bond. The duration and form of tracks -- brimming with banjo, guitar, piano, music boxes and fragments of history -- are dictated by emotional weight, by intuition, not expectation. Born Music (a gesture to the dried river that flows at the back of Lewis home in South London and to the instinctive nature of the sounds contained within) is the duos follow-up to their Go Down, Moses EP, which was released on Under The Spire." -Blackest Rainbow

Format: Triple LP

Country: USA
Price: $65.00
2016 re-press. “Pressed on audiophile grade heavy duty vinyl in an edition of 500 copies. Else Marie Pade, born in 1924 in Denmark, is a precious golden gem in the world of contemporary electro-acoustic music. She is a true pioneer of electronic music and musique concrète. Pade is Denmarks first lady of electronic music and her piece "Syv Cirkler (Seven Circles)" became the first electronic piece performed on Danish radio. Pades fascination with sound began in early childhood. Isolated in her bed for long periods due to illness, she began listening and intensively observing the sounds around her. As a teenager being imprisoned for spying on Nazi compounds in Arhus, she had a similar experience of isolation and sharpening her awareness of sound. Once released from prison, she became a piano student at the Royal Danish Conservatory of Music in Copenhagen. When she was introduced to Pierre Schaeffer in 1952, she instead chose to pursue the nuances of her inner sound-world. Shortly after beginning her studies with Schaeffer, she had her first electronic composition premiered in 1958. Else Marie Pades Electronic Works 1958-1995 is a three LP set of Pades most important compositions which was restored, mastered, and cut at Dubplates & Mastering in 2014 in Berlin under the watchful ears of curator Jacob Kirkegaard. These monumental works are presented, for the first time, pressed on audiophile-grade heavy-duty vinyl. Pressed in an edition of 500 copies.” - Important.

"The sounds outside became concrète music, and in the evening I could imagine that the stars and the moon and the sky uttered sounds and those turned into electronic music." --Else Marie Pade.

"This is a wide panorama of Nam June Paik work as musician -- Hommage à John Cage (1958-1959), Étude for Pianoforte (1959-1960) and Simple (1961) are good exemple of neodada music and de-structuration in the late 50s, this is basically irreverent audio-collages. Prepared Piano for Merce Cunningham (1977) captures an improvised performance by Paik on a de-tuned piano. While Prepared for Merce Cunningham was later mixed and edited for use by Cunningham, this raw, straight-to-tape version is favored by Paik. Duett: Paik/Takis (1979) this is the only piece already released (by 20 years ago on a limited vinyl edition). Paik improvises on piano and voice, while Takis performs on his metal sculptures. Nam June Paik, was born in Seoul, Korea in 1932. After a move to Japan, where he studied the work of composer Arnold Schönberg, Paik came to Germany in 1956 to continue his studies in the history of music. His interests soon turned away from the university setting, to less traditional forms of music leading him to the Westdeutsche Rundfunks Studio for Electronic Music, where Karlheinz Stockhausen was working. To date, there have been only a handful of limited edition LP and cassette releases of Paiks music, primarily documenting collaborative performances with colleagues and friends such as Joseph Beuys and Charlotte Moorman. This is the first CD release of Paiks music and the first ever release of the early tape collage pieces that were to inform the video and performance works that he has continued to produce over the last forty years." - Sub Rosa.

“Quietly and without fuss, Andrew Paine has established himself as one of the UK undergrounds most progressive thinkers and most diverse operators, his modes ranging from solo voice, through layered howling guitars, gentle piano interludes, oblique electronics and wherever he likes in between. He initially broke cover collaborating with Richard Youngs in their progressive rock group project Ilk. Following their second album Canticle (2005), he became particularly prolific, releasing many collaborative titles both with Youngs and with fellow Glasgow resident Caroline McKenzie as well as several solo titles. He founded his own Sonic Oyster Records in 2006 to release much of his work and co-founded the progressive kraut-rock power trio, Space Weather. Current duties extend to bass guitar with punk trio The Flexibles, one half of theosophical thinkers The Blue Tree, with long-time collaborator, Matthew Shaw, and co-founder of Turds of the Reformation. Sky Movers Must Fight On is his first release for Glass Redux. Its short-sharp futuristic bursts capture Paine monologuing to the electronic horizon. Dada with beats.

Title: Haru No Omoi
Format: CD
Label: PSF
Country: Japan
Price: $21.00
Haru No Omoi is the third full length release from Painting Petals On Planet Ghost, the project of My Cat Is An Aliens Maurizio and Roberto Opalio featuring Ramona Ponzini (Black Magic Disco, Praxinoscope) on vocals. The MCIAA duo provide expertly restrained accompaniment with guitar, keyboard, and percussion of the spacious gong/cymbal/bell variety to create a minimalist realm for Ponzinis Japanese singing and spoken word that is all together captivating. This is an album of sparse, hypnotic folk and subtle drone, but it inhabits a galaxy containing a warmth and richness in detail quite unlike anything else the Opalios have laid their hands on. Track two, Sakura No Hana No Oto Ga Kikoeru, is a variation (or maybe the same exact version?) of the same song featured on the bands stunning 2005 self-titled debut release on Time-Lag. Housed in a heavy mini-gatefold sleeve. "Every track recorded in a different mystic location of the Western Alps, Piedmont, Italy between winter 2004, early fall 2006 and January 2009." - PSF.

Maurizio & Roberto add sparse accompaniment by means of toy piano, alien keyboard tones, antique accordion, percussion, tape effects, and some particularly evocative acoustic guitar. The whole thing comes off alternately as deeply meditative or chillingly haunted, depending on your attention & mood.

Well, you hear strings plucked and scraped, hand percussion and drums, woodwinds, vocals (sometime wailing), and other instruments I cannot identify. If you dig the Anaksimandros, Kemialliset Ystävät, Avarus, Pylon, etc., youll want to hear this. I was not familiar with Päivänsäde when they, without any previous contact with me, sent me a cdr of this album back in January. I listened to it and was immediately stunned from start to finish so I listened to it again to be sure I heard what I did. After that I sent an e-mail to the address provided with the cdr and asked if I could issue this on vinyl.

Price: $19.00
"Previously unreleased guitar-and-synth musical jewel from Italy circa 1984. An until-now unknown collaboration between a guitar maestro who composed contemporary dance scores and a gifted electronic music composer. Melodic complexity and rhythmic sonic beauty create a unique and timeless classic that has already achieved cult status among the few who have heard it. Obvious comparisons can be made between Imaginary Choreography and the softer ambient side of vintage German electronic music -- Göttsching, Schnitzler, Cluster, etc., but that would be too easy, as this recording stands alone with its uniquely Italian atmosphere of sophisticated and complex simplicity. This session was recorded by two Venetians: Paki Zennaro (then working with composer René Aubry for choreographer Carolyn Carlson) and Gianni Visnadi (an experimental composer), who met one evening over a glass of wine and decided to work together for the first time with the intention of recording contemporary music to be used by dance schools for study and exercise. The duo recorded on reel-to-reel tape using electronic equipment (Sequential Circuits Pro One and Prophet 5; Roland TR-808 and guitar synth) with an acoustic 12-string guitar. When finished and mixed, a few BASF LH extra cassette copies (maybe as few as six or eight) were sent out to a few friends with a homemade photocopy insert, complete with handwritten track names and production details. A chance find in a Paris market of one of these original demo cassettes led to this wonderful LP finally seeing its first release. This now famous BASF tape was found one lucky morning by Johanna Heather Anselmo (filmmaker, photographer, musician) while searching for musical surprises in a box of tapes that had probably been at that same flea market for 20 years or more. Mademoiselle Johanna is used to rummaging in boxes of dusty tapes, being the girlfriend of Antinote artist Iueke, who has the unusual habit of hiding tapes all over their flat. A bit of searching by Iueke lead him to finding contact information for Zennaro and Visnadi, who were happy to oblige with releasing this almost forgotten 1984 session. Master tapes were sent to Paris for immediate transfer and mastering, while the Check Morris graphic design team worked with its usual class on adapting and reworking the cassette tape artwork for a vinyl issue.

Country: Belgium
Price: $23.00
“Palais des Bauzards pursued an industrial and electronic variant of the sound that swept into vogue during the first half of the 80s. This compilation digs into the original material provided by the band and offers an amazing selection from start to finish. The sometimes rudimentary though gripping tracks on the first side are emblematic of their early period; for example, "Money" is driven by a screeching rhythm box, distant guitar lines, and a nonchalant voice.Cabaret Voltaire comes to mind. Theyre not afraid to experiment and to explore new horizons ("Lies"). The second side shows a more developed dark wave sound with "In the Grassfield" and "Knowing Too Much," both produced by legendary Belgian producerLudo Camberlin. There are even two dark goth-rock stompers hidden in the selection -- "My Life Is a Sin" and "Eat Out of My Hands." Overall its a broad selection of tracks that show the capability of the band to do something different with the new wave genre. The group was formed in 1983 in the Belgian city of Leuven by Danny Jacobs, Dirk wan Regenmortel, Chris Serré, Frank de Wit, andRudy Stuyckens. In 1983 they released two tracks on the Mask Promotion LP alongside Front 242. In the three following years many of their home-recorded tracks were published on a bunch of cassette labels. Since the beginning of the 21st century, many Palais des Bauzards tracks can be found on playlists around Europe and the USA and are being re-released on compilations, includingUnderground Wave Volume 4 (Walhalla Records, 2014) and Distant Waves (Dead Wax Records, 2014).” - Onderstroom.

Price: $23.00
"The influential German post-punk electronic pop band Palais Schaumburg has reunited in the classic line-up. Since its release in 1981, their debut album has remained in a league of its own: fleet-footed and peculiar, abstract and pop, amateurish and savvy, it showed real alternatives to the then-pervasive crude search for identity found in the "new German wave." The band, which consisted entirely of divergent personalities, has reunited in this formation to rediscover their common ground, further develop, and to perform live. In this post-sampling era, with the current, dynamic changes in the creation and reception of music, their statement has lost none of its fascination. Anyone who sees and hears the combination of idiosyncratic bass riffs (Blunck), bizarre yet catchy rhythms (Hertwig, Blunck), Fehlmanns shrill horn and synthesizer fanfares, and Hillers seemingly atonal staccato guitar work and oblique lyrical conglomerates, will immediately comprehend the influence of this band. In addition to the actual album, this reissue includes a second CD/LP containing all the pieces that the band recorded prior to their debut album (all of them now available for the first time on CD), and a previously-unreleased recording of a concert in Holland. A lavish booklet includes rare photographs and liner notes by Chris Bohn, editor of The Wire. " - Bureau B

"The definitive reissue of influential German post-punk electronic pop band Palais Schaumburg: in addition to the actual album, this reissue includes a second LP containing all the pieces that the band recorded prior to their debut album, and a previously-unreleased recording of a concert in Holland. A lavish booklet includes rare photographs and liner notes by Chris Bohn, editor of The Wire. In 1980, two students met at the Hamburg Art Academy: Thomas Fehlmann, who appreciated art and music and wanted to connect them, and the musician Holger Hiller, who had escaped the fractious Hamburg alternative scene, preferring the art schools Conservatory of Music. The spirit of the early New German Wave blew through the country, the first independent labels vied for innovative artists, and the West German post-punk scene began to take shape. Hiller and Fehlmann brought in FM Einheit (from the band Abwärts) on drums and the Californian Chris Lunch on bass. But only shortly after the first single, with Timo Bluncks bass riffs and the adept drumming of Ralf Hertwig, did the band establish its classic line-up. Palais Schaumburg played numerous gigs in this line-up and recorded a second single -- then on the indie label Zick Zack. The recording of the album was enhanced by the British producer David Cunningham (Flying Lizards). Soon the music giant Phonogram came along waving a contract. Though it was predictable that the album would not exactly be a commercial success, its special position in German pop music soon became clear. The attention the album received was considerable, given the "awkwardness" of the music. These days, alongside the central works of the famous Krautrock bands, it is one of the most sought-after albums of German avant-garde music internationally. The limited edition 180 gram vinyl double LP comes with a CD version of the album and contains a 7" single with four tracks from a concert in Hamburg where people from the audience -- among them Andreas Dorau -- perform their own versions accompanied by the band." - Bureau B.

"Great debut LP (following a tour-split with NE Patriots) by this upstate NY trio. Its actually the vinylization of their OSR cassette, but now its a record and thats all the better for you. Their sound immediately strikes ones ear as brimming with the anarcho-squeak-aggression of Switzerlands Kleenex, but thats just the initial impression. Palbertas actual brunt is thoroughly warped in an all-American style, smelling of tent parties in the piney woods as much as sweat-stained house shows in the valleys of the Northeast Kingdom. They take pains to stretch their compositions in a lot of strange simultaneous directions, which both reference and deny the influence of early Rough Trade recording acts. Their brilliantly sloppy experimentalism is one of those sounds that will grow in the creases of yr brain like a lovely fungus. Youll only know youve arrived when youd sprouted a full head of mushroom antlers. Go ahead, take the Palberta challenge. Today." --Byron Coley, 2014; Includes download code. Edition of 400.

Palbertas sound collages together many of the greatest female outfits of the classic Rough Trade era (Kleenex to The Raincoats to Mo-Dettes and onward) while retaining an after-core blurtage that can momentarily call to mind anyone from Slant 6 to Huggy Bear. The trios own personae shine through as well -- giving everything a sputzy Saturday-morning-cartoon quality. This requires blending naïve-sounding pieces of sound-art inside extremely sophisto form-molds and Palberta manage to pull this trick off seamlessly (whether by design or sheer instinct, we dunno). It allows them to celebrate and subvert genre-protocols simultaneously, which is pretty damn great. And the fact that they sound like theyre having a lot of fun while they destroy conventions doesnt hurt in the least. In fact, its what youd be tempted to call a total genius move. Give Palberta an inch. Right now. Theyll take a whole lot more." --Byron Coley, 2015. Edition of 350.

"Pale Blue Sky is the new project from Mike Pollard (formerly Treetops). Shades Of Grey is the projects genesis; a long considered transition uniting the organic drone-work of the former project with compositional structures.  The recordings embody a delicate sense of distance; staring out at the moving landscape obscured by the mediation of the window.  Through blurred fidelity the origin of melody is placed under microscopic inquiry; an exploration into the moment of tonal interaction.  Pale Blue Sky utilizes repetition and non-linear movements, attempting to reconcile simplicity, form, and sentiment through modes of difference.  Placing focus on spatial concerns, as well as emotive potential, the five songs contained within are each different embodiments of the possibility of the transformative decay of remembrance.  An ephemeral glimpse; the moment has already passed. For quiet, distanced listening. Mastered by William Hutson, cut at 45 rpm.  In an edition of 400 copies with full color glossy jackets, printed inner sleeves, and printed labels." - Arbor.

As on The Apocalypse... the only sound source used throughout these two electro-acoustic explorations of the lower depths is the Bösendorfer Imperial Grand Piano, notorious for its unique resonant qualities. The title is a German translation of strings aflame. ...looking directly at the cloud, he saw that it was not a cloud, although what it was he did not know. It was a massive wall of utter blackness that rose from where it met the surface of the downward sloping sand far into the sky, so that he was forced to crane his neck to see the top of it. Lightning bolts still slashed across its face with devastating ferocity, and thunder crashed and rumbled. The wall, he saw or thought hed saw, was a monstrous dam raised against the sky, and over the lip of it was pouring something that was not water, a gigantic waterfall of blackness that was not water, crashing down across the face of it, a waterfall so solid and unbroken that he did not see the actual falling of it, but only had the hypnotic sense of its falling. Watching it, he realized that it was not only thunder he heard, but the deep, awful roar of whatever was falling over the lip of the dam, the Niagara-like rushing sound of something falling down from great height, falling from the unknown into the unknown. It seemed to him that the very ground beneath him was trembling with the roar." - Streamline.

"In 2013, when Daniel OSullivan was invited to curate the sixth installment of Ravenna, Italys Transmissions festival, his first request was for Charlemagne Palestine, the shamanic world-maker, sacred toy emissary, and one-time student of Pandit Pran Nath associated with the New York 60s minimalist scene and known primarily for extended performances with Bösendorfer piano, cathedral organs, and falsetto voice. After Transmissions OSullivan invited Palestine to play a two-night residency at Londons Cafe OTO, the second night of which was a collaboration with Grumbling Fur, the duo of OSullivan and Alexander Tucker. The performance at OTO was a ritualistic union of crystalware, processed strings, live tape manipulations, Indian harmonium, shimmering piano clusters, bleating cattle, a Japanese orgy, disembodied vocal harmony, and rousing choruses often led by sing-a-ma-jigs (singing Fisher-Price toys affectionately referred to as "the singing assholes"). A continuous flow of overtones and plainchant sieved through mutant simulations of processed pulses, orbiting strings, and heliotropic vocal mantras. Following 2013s Glynnaestra and 2014s Preternaturals, both of which The Wire listed in its top avant rock albums of their respective years, this is the first incarnation of the Grumbling Fur alter-ego Time Machine Orchestra, an alias put together to explore extended drone works, improvisation, and automatic composition.

Bells chime ominously to help dispel the haunting and are yet another stark reminder of the impending doom. What hath wrought them? What can be done against them? On this day, Charlemagne Palestine and Janek Schaefer have faced the darkness surrounding us, traversed through the fog, waded into the murky waters, and encountered demons that have surfaced from the dark recesses of the earth.

"Sub Rosa presents Youuu + Mee = Weee (First), a vinyl edition of the first disc of the three CD set Youuu + Mee = Weee (SR 367CD, 2014). Youuu + Mee = Weee is the first recorded collaboration between Charlemagne Palestine and Rhys Chatham. And its precious. Following the musical meetings with Zev (Rubhitbangklanghear Rubhitbangklangear, SR340CD/LP), and with Tony Conrad, these new Sub Rosa sessions create a sort of trilogy. Rhys Chatham began his musical career as a piano tuner for avant-garde pioneer La Monte Young, also working as a harpsichord tuner for Gustav Leonhardt, Rosalyn Tureck, and Glenn Gould. He soon studied under electronic music pioneer Morton Subotnick became a member of Youngs group, The Theater of Eternal Music, during the early 70s. Chatham also played with Tony Conrad in an early version of Conrads group, The Dream Syndicate. In 1971, while still in his teens, Chatham became the first music director at the experimental art space The Kitchen in lower Manhattan. His early works, such as Two Gongs (1971), owed a significant debt to Young and other minimalists. His concert productions included experimenters Maryanne Amacher, Robert Ashley, Philip Glass, Meredith Monk, Pauline Oliveros, Steve Reich, and early alternative rockers such as Fred Frith, Robert Fripp, Arto Lindsay, and John Lurie. He has worked closely with visual artist and musician Robert Longo, particularly in the 1980s, and with visual artist Joseph Nechvatal on an experimental opera called XS: The Opera Opus (1984-6). By 1977, Chathams music had become heavily influenced by punk rock after an experience at an early Ramones concert. He was particularly influential upon the group of artists music critics would label "no wave" in 1978. Members of the New York City noise rock group Band of Susans began their careers in Chathams ensembles; they later performed a cover of Chathams "Guitar Trio" on their 1991 album, The Word and the Flesh. Chatham began playing trumpet in 1983, and his more recent works explore improvisatory trumpet solos employing amplification and effects. Youuu + Mee = Weee (First) features Charlemagne Palestine on Bösendorfer piano, Yamaha organ, and voice and Rhys Chatham on trumpet, loop pedal, and electric guitar. This first edition is pressed on clear red vinyl and limited to 500 copies." - Sub Rosa

Title: Illuminations
Format: LP
Label: Alga Marghen
Country: Italy
Price: $28.00
"Alga Marghen proudly presents the first ever release of Illuminatios, or Charlemagne Palestine and Simone Forti duo interactions, illuminated with dim red lights. In early 1970 Mort Subotnick asked Charlemagne Palestine to join his soon to be created Media Department at the new Dream School of the Future endowed by the Disneys to be called the California Institute of the Arts. Charlemagne and Simone Forti met there in 1970, when La Monte Young asked them to arrange a California concert for Pandit Pran Nath. They decided to try an improvisation session together and Charlemagne invited Simone the first time to the electronic music studio where he worked regularly. Their medium blended as a play of interacting sound waves and solid matter in motion as Charlemagne and Simone shared energy and focus. The three previously unreleased recordings on this LP were made between October and December 1971. The first take, titled Illumination, is for two voices moving in the space with small bells and crystal glasses while Simone Forti plays the molimo, a corrugated tube meant for connecting the gas stove. The second take titled, Wed Oct 13th 1971, has Simone and Charlemagne in a song dialogue as animals do. It was also at Cal Arts that Charlemagne Palestine first encountered a Bosendorfer Imperial Piano of Vienna. He played it often as Simone danced during their Illuminations. Take three is a song sang in falsetto while playing the Bosendorfer Imperial in an arpeggiated style that predates the strummings. Listening to these three takes 40 years later, they ooze a timeless, carefree mystical, magical, dreamy atmosphere that evoked the times of the late 60s to early 70s in Charlemagne and Simone part of the California Art Scene. Illuminations were a unique open spontaneous form of performance, ritual and prayer. Edition limited to 365 copies with an essay by both Charlemagne Palestine and Simone Forti, as well as photos of the performances reproduced on the LP front sleeve." - Alga Marghen.

Format: CD
Label: Alga Marghen
Country: Italy
Price: $20.00
“Originally released in 2000. The Golden Research is the name chosen for the complete documentation of previously unpublished works by Charlemagne Palestine starting from the early 1960s to the mid-late 1970s. Such a huge project will include seminal collage and electronic music, Bell Studies, New York and California drones, piano drones as well as more specific compositions. All the recordings will be exclusively available through Alga Marghen. Be ready to change your own opinion about minimalism and music in general? Holy1 and Holy2 were both recorded in NYC in 1967. Charlemagne Palestine was listening to a lot of ethnic world music; he was also immersed in the late night New York soundscape, absorbing the spatial sound diversity and beauty that such a big city could only express very late at night. He also worked at night building up a sound, oscillator by oscillator; then adding tiny increments of white noise that would gradually make the sounds thicker and thicker until they were immense sacred machines humming like gargantuan Tibetan bees. The sounds were played very, very loud, making all the objects in the room resonate, while outside all was quiet and sleeping. Holy1 & Holy2 were done this way. Then, in 1969, Tony Conrad asked Charlemagne Palestine to make some carillon music for his film Coming Attractions. They were seeing each other regularly when the Free Music Store of radio station WBAI asked Palestine to create a piece for an event they were preparing to broadcast live on radio. So he asked Tony, his saxophonist Bob Feldman and his then-wife and soprano Deborah Glaser to collaborate on a work that he would organize around an instrument that he invented at that time called an Alumonium. Tony Conrad played an instrument that he invented, the Long String Drone, that was a long string attached to a long wooden structure and amplified. Bob played the chimes and a conch. Deborah sang and played chimes and Charlemagne sang, also played the chimes and some percussion instruments that they found lying around the hall where they played. The piece became Alloy and the sound used as an all-electronic background continuum, played through loudspeakers in the hall, were Holy1+2 from 1968.

Country: Italy
Price: $26.00
"In 1974, Ileana Sonnabend commissioned Charlemagne Palestine to create a limited edition, double LP in conjunction with a performance to celebrate the opening of her new Soho gallery at 420 West Broadway. Charlemagne made several recording attempts, first at Swarthmore College in Pennsylvania where they had a Bösendorfer Imperial Piano in their theater. He recorded "Bösendorfer + Voice", "Voice Piece" as well as some Bösendorfer tests, with Mayo Thompson as producer and Kurt Munkacsi as sound engineer. These ecstatic Swarthmore recordings, recorded late at night in the big empty theater space, represented the original elements on which Charlemagne Palestine later created the piano pieces for Four Manifestations on Six Elements (ALGAMARS 004LP, MAGNE 008LP). For more than 40 years since these recordings were made, Palestine never went back to listen to them, but recently on re-listening to these Swarthmore recordings with Alga Marghen, he found several blissful, arpeggiated piano and falsetto voice studies which he feels now deserve to be heard. Included in the Alga Marghen VocSon series, this LP of two previously unreleased 1974 recordings finally see the light of day. Edition of 405." - Alga Marghen.

“Edition of 400 copies. Includes original photos from the recording sessions. High up in a tower, accessible only by a spiral staircase that led to a concrete platform above the whole city, Charlemagne Palestines "HellsBells" became the sonic mainstay of 53rd Street and 5th Avenue, NYC, from 1963 to 1970. In 1963, while attending The High School of Music & Art in New York, the 15-year-old Palestine was asked if hed be interested in playing a 26-bell carillon at the St. Thomas Episcopal Church. He decided that he loved the voluptuous Taylor bells, and played them every day from 1963 to 1970, when he left New York to study and teach at CalArts. During his time above 53rd and 5th, Palestine became known as the Quasimodo of midtown NYC, and his dissonant and "klanggdedangggebannggg" style of playing attracted a diverse group of fans, from Moondog to John Cage to Tony Conrad, among others. Palestine was able to continue playing his clanging-bell soap operas for seven years, dinggdonggingggg every late afternoon and Sunday mornings. This LP collects some of the most relevant recordings from those early days. Side A presents the complete reel-tape "Bells Studies," an intense, pulsating work in five movements. It begins with slow, hypnotic, large sonorities and accelerates into more dense and maximal explosions. Side B collects some shorter studies: "Bells," the two parts of "Confiscated Bell Tape," and an excerpt from "Dumb Bell Tape." Each track was recorded by the composer in single takes around 1965 and unheard since, until now.” - Alga Marghen.

"Bells Carillon" and "St Thomas Bells," both recorded at unidentified dates between 1966 and 1968, are maximal-bells-pure-resonating frontal attacks, building up in a structure that anticipates the later Strumming campaigns (SR 297CD). Unique and clashing dissonances created like an instinctive, spontaneous outburst. Palestine played the bells right next to his body.

Title: Four Manifestations On Six Elements

Label: Alga Marghen
Country: Italy
Price: $20.00
"2015 remastered version of Alga Marghens 2010 reissue of the Sonnabend Gallerys 1974 limited edition double LP. Presented in digipak sleeve with full-color 12-page booklet including two essays, originals score, and visual materials relating to the composition. Alga Marghen presents the fifth installment of its Golden Research Charlemagne Palestine archive series: Four Manifestations On Six Elements, one of Palestines most well-known works. In 1973 the Sonnabend Gallery in New York commissioned Palestine to make Four Manifestations On Six Elements. "Two Perfect Fifths, a Major Third Apart, Reinforced Twice" (1973) is an electronic piece that deals with the search for the essence of timbre -- sound color -- through exploration of the inert chemical activity in the overtone series of tone fundamentals. This genre of Palestines work is akin to a kind of sound alchemy, blending elements over and over again in search of the Golden Sound: the essence of the chord or harmonic structure itself. In "One + Two + Three Perfect Fifths, in the Rhythm 3 Against 2, for Piano" (1973), Palestine uses the resonant Bösendorfer piano to create a more lively and complex variation of tones, intervals, overtones, and rhythms. "One Fifth" evolves by reinforcing the fundamentals of a fifth with their higher octave. Each performance of this work is different, as Palestine reinterprets these simple elements and listens within them for variations of amplitude, mixture, and inertia at the moment of the performance. "One + Two Fifths" deals with the way a rhythmic sonority sounds when the sustain pedal of the piano is not used, thus focusing on its rhythmic aspect. Gradually, by adding the sustain pedal, the external rhythmic pattern begins to internalize, becoming an inert part of the whole timbral fabric -- a piece expressing the struggle for dominance between rhythm and timbre. In "One + Two + Three" a third fifth is added -- variations of melody and sonority reinforcements culminating in a rhythmic deceleration process. "Sliding Fifths for Piano" (1972) is an impressionistic version of the three fifths used in the entire work. The continuous liquid waterfall of pure romantic piano sound and color is an homage to Debussy, Ravel, and Monet. "Three Perfect Fifths, a Major Second Apart, Reinforced Twice" (1973) is the complexification and continuation of track one. A pure and sonorous phenomenon.." -Alga Marghen.

From Etudes to Cataclysms is one of Charlemagnes most important works. An impressive composition of more than 140 minutes based on a unique instrument -- a double piano on which one keyboard is played by the feet. - Sub Rosa. "Several years ago, Martin Kaufmann of Kaufmann Pianos in Brussels told me he had seen and heard an amazing and unique instrument in Italy. A piano with two separate bodies! One with a normal grand piano body having 88 notes to be played with the fingers, and below this piano was a second piano also with a grand piano body that could play simultaneously the lower 37 notes of a grand piano with pedals for the feet. Having known my music for years and that I had been a carilloneur where one plays with both fists and feet simultaneously, Martin Kaufmann thought that the Borgato would be perfect for my music. The inventor of this unique instrument was Luigi Borgato from Padua, who developed this instrument with his wife, Paola. I was intrigued, and through an intermediary, the Italian pianist Roberto Posseda visited the Borgatos in Lonigo where they have their workshop and found that their instrument was perfect for my body and my music. We immediately decided to organize recording sessions in a local church for one week and From Etudes to Cataclysms is the result!" --Charlemagne Palestine, October 2007.

Title: Godbear
Format: LP
Label: Black Truffle
Country: Australia
Price: $21.00
Limited repress. "The first vinyl release of Charlemagne Palestines Godbear, a 1987 solo piano recording originally scheduled to sit alongside Sonic Youthand Swans in the catalogue of Glenn Brancas Neutral Records but eventually released on CD by the Dutch Barooni label in 1998. Although Palestine has worked in an enormous variety of media, his long form performances for solo piano are perhaps his most acclaimed works. Palestine immersed himself in the study of overtones throughout the 1960s, working first with carillons and then with electronic synthesis, searching for the golden sound. Beginning in the early 1970s he continued his exploration of the complexities hidden within seemingly simple tones and intervals on the Bösendorfer Imperial Grand Piano, the Rolls Royce of pianos. With the pianos sustain pedal constantly depressed, Palestine hammers out rapidly repeated notes, allowing a complex cloud of overtones to rise above the percussive texture of the struck keys. Initially working with simple intervals such as octaves and fifths, Palestine gradually expanded the harmonic range of his piano performances over the years, while still retaining their ecstatically single-minded nature. Revisiting his signature piano style in 1987 after several years focusing on visual art, Godbear presents three distinct variations that demonstrate the development of his piano music after the classic recordings of the early 1970s. Occupying the entire first side, The Lower Depths stages a slow descent from the pianos mid-range to the Bösendorfers cavernous additional low octave, building into a thundering swarm of booming overtones. Breaking entirely with the stereotype of clinical minimalism, Palestines journey to the depths embraces passages of darkly romantic melody before slowly ascending to its starting point. The version of Strumming Music performed here condenses the developmental arc of the piece into eleven minutes, fanning out from a single octave to a complex harmonic wash that calls to mind Palestines enthusiasm for Debussy and Ravel. Timbral Assault is like an evil twin of Strumming Music, transforming its insistency and harmonic complexity into aggressive intensity and creeping dissonance, foreshadowing Palestines later collaborations with Christoph Heemann. A classic release, and one that, because of the variety of approaches surveyed within, serves as an ideal introduction to Palestines ecstatic and mysterious sound world" --Francis Plagne.

"Holy1 and Holy2 (both composed in 1967) were edited in 1999 by Charlemagne Palestine and interconnected through a long cross-fade; the wonderful 30 minutes resulting from the editing are to be heard on the Alloy CD. At the same time it was also decided to produce a double-LP featuring the uncut, original Holy1 and Holy2 in their full duration beauty. The complete 42 minutes of Holy1 were printed on side A and side B. The shorter Holy2 was printed on side C. As the composer underlines these 2 compositions may also be played  simultaneously, creating a new original work, as it happened in the late 1960s when he used them as a texture for an experimental dance piece. This double-LP was designed to give the chance to recreate the environment resulting from the simultaneous playback of Holy1 and Holy2. A sound installation to be privately performed at home by playing the records in the same moment on two turntable systems (side A+C or B+C). The very subtle variations of the two compositions generate a continuously changing and never ending sound environment. Side D features the music of Holy1 + 2 created in 1968 for Gus  Solomon, a choreographer at New York University and student of Merce Cunningham. Edition of 380 numbered copies." - Alga Marghen.

Format: CD
Label: Alga Marghen
Country: Italy
Price: $20.00
"Originally released in 2003. The first electronically generated sounds thatCharlemagne Palestine ever heard came from the machines he encountered in ordinary daily urban life. Machines like the refrigerator electric motor, or electrical generators; but it was especially the sounds of motion (race cars, motorcycles, war planes, rocket ships) that first excited his sonic imagination as a young teenager. Then he heard the electronic music of Tod Dockstader, Pierre Henry and Pierre Schaeffer, the famous "Podme Electronique" of Varèse, Xenakis and "Gesang der Junglinge" of Stockhausen. He immediately reacted buying a cheap reel-to-reel tape recorder, cutting and pasting recording tape and making collage sound experiments. Then, one day, Charlemagne Palestine experienced at an electronic music studio what electronically produced sound waves looked and sounded like through an oscilloscope and he began studying Helmholtzs On the Sensation of Tone. He started dreaming of an expressive, continuous, ever-moving, ever-changing sound form; an enormous sonorous, 3-dimensional sculptural canvas in mid-air using electronically produced sounds. The first experiments were done with simple sine tone generators emitting the purest sound waves without any overtones. With access to more complex systems, the sound was constructed using the sine/sawtooth/square wave oscillators in a fluid, ever-changing mix of adding or filtering overtones and white noise to create sonorities, constantly changing timbres, and weight. Five early electronic compositions including "Sine Tone Study" (1967); "Open Closing" (1968), created through speed alterations of "Holy 1+2"; "Seven Organism Study" (1968); "Negative Sound Study" (1969) and "Timbral for Pran Nath" (1970). Late night electronic sonorities created on the Buchlas 100 & 200 systems available at the New York University Intermedia Centre. All compositions previously-unreleased. 3-folded digipak cover with original photos and liner notes written by the composer." -Alga Marghen.

"Relationship Studies LP includes 2 seminal electronic music radical realizations by Charlemagne Palestine, or Relationship Study No. 1 (1967) and the generally titled Electronic from the same year. Sounds in motion like race cars, motor cycles, war planes, rocket ships excited Charlemagne sonic imagination when we was still a young teenager. Then came the experience of listening to the electronic music of Tod Dockstader, Alwyn Nikolais, Pierre Henry and Pierre Schaffer, Xenakis and Poème Electronique by Edgar Varese. Immediately fascinated, Charlemagne Palestine bought primitive electronic equipment and started to experiment, creating his original electronic-esque language. The two previously unreleased 18 minute masterpieces presented here directly come from this early period of intense experimentations in a fluid, ever-changing mix of adding and filtering white noise and simple sine tone generators. Both pieces are late night compositions created at the electronic music studio of the New York N.Y.U. Intermedia Center using Buchla 100 and Buchla 200 systems. Even if dating back from the mid-1960s, these intense sonorities might very much recall the best early power electronic scene from the late 1970s, in particular to the first brut music works created by Maurizio Bianchi. For sure they represent a very unique and inspiring approach to electronic creation, sounding more and more actual and surprising nowadays. Edition limited to 350 copies." -Alga Marghen

Title: Running and Chanting and Falling and Ranting
Format: CD/Book
Label: Alga Marghen
Country: Italy
Price: $68.00
"Privately issued by the artist in collaboration with Alga Marghen, Running and Chanting and Falling and Ranting is quite a unique book presenting images from Charlemagne Palestines complete video productions. "Body Music I" (1973) and "Body Music II" (1974) were Palestines first incursions into the video medium. They were followed, from 1974 until 1979, by a series of works that together form one of the seminal and most distinctive bodies of conceptual, performance-driven video of that decade. As a composer, performer and visual artist, Palestine has gained international recognition for his influential music, sound compositions and performances across six decades. His psychodramatic video works of the 1970s, which are less well known, transform and extend his sound and performance art into the electronic medium. Throughout these pieces, Palestine activates ritualistic movements and vocal expressions (hypnotic chants, screams, keening wails) as outward articulations of interior states. The very titles of these fervent enactments suggest extreme physical and psychological catharses, release and escape. Palestines video works of the 1970s are visceral, raw, urgent. While his video works must be seen in dialogue with Palestines music and performances (his signature objects like stuffed animals, cognac, and scarves appear across media), they also speak to the specific conditions of early video art practices and the wider alternative art scene and countercultural sensibility of the era. Palestines unruly, unpredictable performance videos emerged in the context of an equally unruly and unpredictable landscape of art-making in the 1970s. As art practices moved away from object-making towards an emphasis on process, the prevailing discourses of conceptual art and post-Minimalism were manifested in the dematerialized gestures of Body Art and performance, and in hybrid forms such as installation, experimental music, expanded cinema, intermedia art, and video. The nascent video art scene was further cross-pollinated with generative ideas and influences that ranged from technology and television to cybernetic theory and political activism. The presiding spirit was one of experimentation, ad hoc and collective processes, and improvisation, a renegade ethos tracked in the decades underground art from counterculture to punk. The book includes an essay by Lori Zippay titled Body Music: Charlemagne Palestines Video Rituals, a long interview by Serpentine Gallery directorHans Ulrich Obrist as well as a CD with the full soundtracks of "Body Music I," "Body Music II," "Island Song," "Running Outburst" and "Tying Myself Up." 254 color pages, A4 size.

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

Label: Close/Far Recordings

Price: $8.00
“Close/Far Recordings is positively elated to publish an unreleased version of Schlingen-Blängen, from Charlemagne Palestines personal archives, recorded in 1977. Palestine considers it to be the first official recorded version of Schlingen-Blängen that pre-dates the only other published version, recorded in 1988, by eleven years. Both pieces were performed on the same church pipe organ in Delfzijl, Holland by the North Sea. Because the master was recorded on cassette, informing the character and atmosphere of the piece, and since this new edition is once again on cassette, Charlemagne has named it SchlingenCassettenBlängen. This analog magnetic tape captured version from 1977 is exquisitely dark and humid in comparison to the wonderfully bright and crisp digitally recorded version from 1988. It will also be the first full-length solo Charlemagne Palestine work ever released on cassette.

SchlingenCassettenBlängen is colored by the nuances and flaws of being a decades-old cassette tape which Charlemagne feels embellishes the recording, making it a special new work. Or as he says "Itsssss Casssettennnn magiccccc!!!" The intermittent speed warping and out of tune tape sliding invites a rich dialogue with the mechanics of the cassette itself and fundamentally with time. Clocking in at 90 minutes long it stretches out in an ethereal fashion that is simultaneously ruminative and tempestuous documenting Charlemagnes organ playing in a particularly elegiac, painterly, and ultimately sublime mode. Fortunately, this important but hidden early document is now preserved enabling us to experience a very special chapter in Palestines recorded oeuvre highlighted by a truly ecstatic final passage that stands amongst his most emotive, mystical, and powerful moments.” —N.N.N.

Price: $20.00
"Alga Marghen proudly presents a new chapter in the documentation series of Charlemagne Palestines historical works. This CD of previously unavailable recordings not only presents you Charlemagne Palestine activities in 1974, collaborating with some of most important experimental artists and composers from either the New York loft scene and Cal Arts, but also features world premiere recordings of Terry Jennings and The Fundamental D Flat Group. Short & Sweet is the title of a breathtaking duo for piano and sax performed on April 24th by Charlemagne Palestine and Terry Jennings. The two composers happened to play together in very private concerts at Cal Arts, but never recorded those sessions, until a special day when Charlemagne happened to have a little tape recorder around. The recording was considered lost for more than 30 years, when finally a copy was found thanks to Tony Conrad. The piano part reminds some of the early pieces by Charlemagne Palestine titled Piano Drones (as the one pre-dating of a couple of years this duo and presented on the Continuous Sound Forms CD issued on Alga Marghen. The liner notes of the same CD mention this duo with Terry Jennings at the time considered lost). Terry Jennings soprano sax is very elaborated and decorative. Around 1967, Charlemagne was experimenting mainly with voice and electronics. He also occasionally recorded piano and sax improvisations with his friend Bob Feldman. This CD featured a very special duo by Palestine and Feldman playing electronics and flute. The two artists met in 1961 when Bob Feldman worked in a jazz record shop in the Times Square subway station. Palestine didnt know much about jazz and Feldman guided him through the new progressive jazz styles of the times. Later at the Intermedia Center of NYU where they had a Buchla synthesizer, Charlemagne and Bob Feldman experimented between jazz raga and electronics. Very little was recorded. This is one rare duet that dates probably from around 1967. The last track on this CD is the first 30 minutes of a recording from April 22, 1972 by The Fundamental D Flat Group performing in Db. During one trip back to NYC from Cal Arts, Charlemagne Palestine was invited by Tony Conrad (together with Rhys Chatham) to Albright College in New Jersey for a Sunday afternoon concert. That was the first and last time The Fundamental D Flat Group played in public (Tony Conrad: violin, horn, string drone; Rhys Chatham: flute, organ, string drone; Charlemagne Palestine: voice, pipes, snifter). Although the piece lasted all afternoon, the first 30 minutes were the only portion recorded during the performance. The Fundamental D Flat Group invite you to listen and meditate in the mode of Db. To hear this is to enter the deepest realm of knowledge of the sound current. The ear, the understanding, and the core of the spirit resonate to the mode of the single tone and its harmonic family. You read, and hear, and feel the empathy of human spirit. This CD is housed in a beautiful digipack with a full color sleeve with photos and liner notes. The edition presents some of the best recordings ever issued by Charlemagne Palestine, a highlight in the Alga Marghen catalog and a unique chance to listen to the core of Charlemagne Palestine." -Alga Marghen

Title: Sound 1
Format: LP
Label: Alga Marghen

Price: $32.00
"As the title well underlines, Sound 1, electronic sonority is a starting point in Charlemagne Palestines research for the Golden Sonority. Previously unpublished, this radical and fundamental work has now been released on LP record in collaboration with the New Media Dept. of Centre Pompidou (National Museum of Modern Art) in Paris for the first Oeuvres Sonores event, December 15th, 2008. Charlemagne Palestine started to dream of an expressive, continuous, ever-moving, ever-changing sound-form; an enormous sonorous 3-dimensional sculptural canvas in mid-air, using electronically-produced sounds. At first, he began experiments with simple sine tone generators, emitting the purest sound waves without any overtones. Then, gradually, with access to Moog and arps, he constructed sounds using the sine/sawtooth/square wave oscillators in a fluid, ever-changing mix of adding or filtering overtones and white noise to create sonorities constantly changing timbres and weight. Palestine experimented in this way from 1964 till 1974 in NYC and then, in California. Finally, he assembled his own drone machine of 16 ultra stable oscillators designed by Serge Tcherepnin and 4 band pass filters designed by Donald Buchla. He would build up a sound, oscillator by oscillator, then add ever-so-slightly to the oscillator input, tiny increments of white noise that would gradually make the sounds thicker and thicker, until they were immense, sacred machines humming like gargantuan Tibetan bees. Charlemagne played them very, very loud, making all the room and objects in it resonate, while outside all was quiet and sleeping. He worked like a painter with a palette and a canvas and he mixed and added and mixed and added over, entire nights, mixing, adding, and then lying on the mattress and listening and fine-tuning. Finally, at a certain point, after several nights, the sonority seemed ready to record. Hed put on the tape, prepare the tape machine with the proper level as not to overload it, and record the texture. This 1-sided LP was issued in an edition limited to 500 copies. Includes a 25-page program booklet, including an essay by Charlemagne Palestine and artwork by John Giorno." -Alga Marghen

Format: Triple CD
Label: Sub Rosa
Country: Belgium
Price: $21.00
"Subtitled: For Piano, Harpsichord And Strings Ensemble. Sub Rosa presents unpublished works by minimalist composer/vocalist/performer Charlemagne Palestine. Charlemagne Palestine wrote intense, ritualistic music in the 1970s, intended by the composer to rub against audiences expectations of what is beautiful and meaningful in music. A composer-performer, he always performed his own works as soloist. His earliest works were compositions for carillon and electronic drones, and he is best known for his intensely performed piano works. These unpublished pieces from the mid-70s are works built on the same principles that he developed and established over the years for the piano. This is a unique variation on composition that introduces a perpetual rise inside a continuum of sound. "All of the Strumming Music manifestations seem to have originated from Charlemagnes physical relationship with the colossal carillon bells in the tower of St. Thomas Church on Fifth Avenue in New York. I met Charlemagne Palestine in 1968. The intensity of his listening impressed me as the intensity of his playing would later, when I heard him play on the carillon and the bells to his church. I realized later, when Charlemagne had started to develop his series of piano pieces called Strumming, that he was assaulting that concrete ceiling and literally pushing through its three feet to release the sonic energy in the piano, much as he had with the carillon. Charlemagnes interest and work in electronic music increased in the late 60s, and in 1970, he decamped to southern California where he became a graduate student working with Morton Subotnick. It was during this year at CalArts (1970-71) that Charlemagne developed an approach to the piano that was not only extremely repetitive and physical, but predicated on the theory that, given the right stimulus, the instrument had a voice of its own and could produce a whole array of high overtones that seem to jump out on their own as if by magic. Over the next few years, he developed and polished the music that came to be known simply as Strumming. The rapid alternation between single notes and chords and different registers became a technique that he seemed to own, and it really only worked with this magic piano. Strumming was the physical technique; the melodies and harmonies that resulted made the music breathe and feel alive. After a while, the ear doesnt distinguish between notes that are sounded by hammers and those which are." --extract from the liner notes by Ingram Marshall.

Title: Strumming Music
Format: LP
Label: Aguirre
Country: Belgium
Price: $27.00
"The classic minimal music album, available again on vinyl for the first time since the 70s. Primed with a glass of cognac, Charlemagne Palestine sits at the keyboard of a Bösendorfer Imperial grand piano. One foot firmly holds down the sustain pedal while both hands perform an insistent strum-like alternation on the keys. Soon Palestine and his Bösendorfer are enveloped in sound and bathed in a shimmering haze of multi-colored overtones. For 45 minutes, this rich pulsating music swells and intensifies, filling the air. When Strumming Music first appeared on the adventurous French label Shandar during the mid-1970s, it seemed a straightforward matter to place Charlemagne Palestine in the so-called minimalist company of La Monte Young, Terry Riley, Steve Reich, and Philip Glass, whose work also featured in the Shandar catalog. Palestine too used a deliberately restricted range of materials and a repetitive technique, but as he has often pointed out in more recent times, the opulent fullness of his music would more accurately be described as maximalist. Strumming Music, recorded in Palestines own loft in Manhattan, has no written score. In an age of recorded sound he still feels no need for traditional notation. The surging energy of this particular recording stands comparison with the improvising of jazz visionaries who impressed and inspired him while living in New York as a young man. But, as Palestine himself has made clear, primarily he brings to music-making the sensibility of an artist rather than a musician. Although the technique of the piece has roots in Palestines daily practice, when a teenager, of playing the carillon at a church, hammering sonorous chimes from a rack of tuned bells, it also draws on his later work as a body artist, staging vigorously muscular, physically demanding and often reckless performances. In addition, Strumming Music can be heard as a sculptural tour de force, while its textures connect with the color moods, plastic rhythms, and tactile space of Mark Rothkos abstract expressionist canvases. Strumming Music remains the essential index of Palestines singular creative vision. Fundamentally this fascinating piece is a collaboration between an artist and an instrument. Palestine had first encountered the Bösendorfer Imperial back in 1969. "The Bösendorfer at its best is a very noisy, thick molasses piano," he has remarked. Charlemagne Palestine embraced its clinging sonorousness, its clangorous resonance and out of that embrace came the voluptuous sonic fabric of Strumming Music." - Aguirre.

Country: Italy
Price: $56.00
"Alga Marghen introduce a historical event, the publication of The Lower Depths, a three-CD set of previously unreleased unique piano sonorities by Charlemagne Palestine. In 1977, Charlemagne Palestine was regularly performing in his red and gold loft on North Moore Street in Tribeca, down the street from Magoos bar where all the local artists hung out back then. He was working on a trilogy called The Lower Depths, a work conceived during the crucial moment when he experienced one of the peaks of his creative power. The trilogy takes its name from the potentials of his Bösendorfer weapon which had lower notes than any other piano. The first section starts in the middle of the piano keyboard and the second section two octaves below, while the third section arrives till the very bottom of the instrument. Its a deep, thunderous, rumbling world that we experience. An extreme immersion in the depths of the dark side of strumming music. The Lower Depths is a central work within the history of musical minimalism, stretching and expanding what is understood and expected of an already singular voice.

Format: LP
Label: Alga Marghen
Country: Italy
Price: $28.00
"Alga Marghen proudly presents two seminal electronic music radical realizations by Charlemagne Palestine. These previously unpublished pieces confirm once more how advanced his Golden Research already was in the 1960s, a very personal approach to sound which would have later become so influential for future generations. Continuous Sound, built by an ever-changing mix of adding and filtering white noise and simple sine tone generators, is the most solid sound construction that Charlemagne created in preparation of his lost electronic masterpiece LAvventura, inspired by the Michelangelo Antonioni movie with the same title. Continuous Sound pre-dates LAvventura of just a few months and with its suspended atmospheres and its deep sense of mystery represent one of the most fascinating sonic works by Charlemagne Palestine. Crown Chan is an electronic music piece created for a dance by Gus Solomon in 1970. Conceiving music for dancers gave Charlemagne the possibility to experiment and manipulate the reel tapes of some of his electronic sonorities. In a previous collaboration with Gus Salomon, Charlemagne created a new sound by simply superimposing two already existing and accomplished electronic drones. Holy1 and Holy2 thus became a completely new sonority titled Holy1+2 (these works were included in the CD titled Alloy, also issued by Alga Marghen). In the case of Crown Chan Charlemagne worked in a more structural way, shaping his electronic sound materials into two stereo reel tapes (titled Crown Chan 1&2 and Crown Chan 3&4) which also integrated silent parts and were meant to be played back simultaneously, thus providing a powerful live music for the dancers.

"The VocSon series presents on limited edition LPs the most advanced international vocal experiments and is mainly dedicated to the documentation of sound poetry. This series includes now the new LP record by Charlemagne Palestine titled Voice Studies. Charlemagne Palestines introduction to music or sound was first with his own voice. He began at four years old to sing versions of popular songs and operas in his own way. Later on, a director of a Jewish sacred music choir auditioned him to sing with them, Charlemagne was seven years old at the time and for the next seven years, he sang all over the East Coast and the U.S. as a member of a choir that sang with many of the greatest European Chazans (Jewish Sacred Singers) who had fled Europe during the rise of anti-Semitism and resettled in America. From them he learned to sing in a long chanting style with his own natural voice. At the same time he met Pran Nath, the master of Kirana singing and studied a short time with him as well as Javanese singing with Ki Wasito di Puro at Cal Arts. Over the years, Charlemagne Palestine has performed and recorded vocal works as an important part of his output as a sonic artist. This LP includes the very early Surrealistic Studies, recorded in Brooklyn in the beginning of the 1960s. Using a Webcor reel-to-reel tape recorder and discovering a technique of shouting into the microphone and immediately pulling it out, creating an interior echo chamber where the sound would turn around on itself, changing and distorting. No other electronic sound manipulation techniques were used. Voice + Piano Study I & II are short and beautiful piano improvisation with tape superimposition of accelerated voice pieces. Recorded at Cal Arts on September 29th, 1971. Voice Study was recorded in Manhattan in the mid-1960s. In this study Charlemagne sings in a falsetto duet with himself on two separate tracks. Sung in a resonant space reminiscent of a synagogue in the falsetto voice that he began to develop from Jewish male sacred chant falsettos. He searches for intervals that resonate together and respond like electronic sound wave oscillators played against each other. Finally, there is the fantastic 6-minute Beauty Chord + Voice with Charlemagne playing piano and singing. Edition limited to 385 copies." -Alga Marghen

The pin-drop acoustic clarity of the venue providing an ideal setting for this mesmeric recital of eternal music. A Grumbling Fur redux/remodel constitutes side four. The signature strumming of Palestines piano augmented by Tucker and OSullivans earthware electronics and processed strings create seamless sonic ripples in a constant state of unfolding. This is perhaps the most demonstrative document of Palestines powerful vocal delivery - an alien hybrid of sacred music drawing deep from the well of the cantorial synagogue and Hindustani classical styles in a bid to channel inter-dimensional beings from ancient cultures. In some respects, this could be thought of as Charlemagne in dub as Grumbling Fur carefully twist and mangle their palette of electrified harp, viola, bowed mandolin, percussion, tapes, and voice transformers through chains of loopers, resulting in a slowly dilating vapor.

The film, Atomin Paluu (2015) is a Finnish production, created by Jussi Eerola and Mika Taanila, documents the building of the first nuclear power plant since the Chernobyl meltdown in 1986 - a project that fell foul of much bureaucratic wrangling and control which manifested itself in the need for over forty cuts of the film. Atomin Paluu, the soundtrack, shows Pan Sonic uniquely using selected third-party field recordings from filming at the building site. As the films soundtrack, these recordings were also bound up in a complex series of delays in the release of the film. The pre-release screenings of the film it won the highly coveted 2015 Nordic Dox Award at the world renowned CPH:DOX festival in Copenhagen. The soundtrack itself brought the greatest recognition and went on to win Best Soundtrack at the Jussi Awards Festival (known as the Finlands Oscars). In typical Pan Sonic style neither member bothered to attend the awards to collect their statuettes." - Blast First Petite.

"300 copies pressed on 140 gram vinyl in heavyweight reverse-printed sleeves. Norm Chambers music travels like a deep mental odyssey in a labyrinth of serene echoes. Beyond the sounds, there is the sentiment of peacefulness, a cinematic mosaic of colors, flashing in your mind. Searching for constant illumination, you slowly float in open space. Random sequences of data wandering the sky, quick streams of light buzzing around you, lost in hypnotic corridors leading to new environments, discovering glittering gems. A fantastic trip filled with dystopian drones, analog birds, and IDM beats. Get lost in the light." -Under The Spire.

Price: $20.00
"Over the last four years, Seattle synthesist Panabrite (aka Norm Chambers) has become one of Americas most prolific and proficient creators of transcendent electronic music. Chambers is an ardent explorer of great, underground music and its demonstrated on Pavilion as a love letter to some Italian albums from the classic 70s era of minimalism and prog, such as Lovisoni/ Messinas Prati Bagnati Del Monte Analogo, Franco Battiatos Clic, Claudio Rocchis Suoni Di Frontiera, and American-to-Rome transplant Alvin Currans Canti E Vedute Del Giardino Magnetico. Chambers praises their freewheeling studio experimentalism crossed with the most elegant, stunning (non)ambient music. He strove for a similar feeling in Pavilion by playing 90 percent of everything by hand and opting for minimal use of sequencers." Includes download code." - Immune.

Title: Soft Terminal
Format: LP
Label: Digitalis
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Panabrite is the project of Norm Chambers -- not a household name to most people, but for those who have been reveling in his music for the last few years, he is absolutely adored. He is also, we should add, the man responsible for one of the most-loved synth albums of the last few years, although thats a journey he took incognito and we just arent at liberty to divulge that identity quite yet. Some will be quick to chalk Soft Terminal up as just another Kosmische record, but thats just the surface dressing. There is something deeper happening here: vivid, liquid dreams are sculpted into intricate fantasy landscapes, each layer revealing another aspect of Chambers production prowess. The thing with Chambers, is that he has an innate ability to write richly-textured, melodic compositions that have as much in common with vintage electronic library music as they do with minimal synth-pop and 70s prog. Soft Terminal opens with "Rainbow Sequence" and "Index Of Gestures." The former remains understated, moving simply and slowly while pulling open the curtain on the rest of the album. With "Index Of Gestures," Chambers opens up the sequencers and lets them fly. Dizzying passages resonate and when the piece finally feels like it will lift off, he tightens the reins and dives straight into an underwater sequence. But thats only a small part of the story. "Janus" opens with finger-picked guitar arrangements augmented with synth chords and rising leads. The guitars return on "Sound Softly" while Chambers ghostly, robotic vocals float away unscathed. On "Beta Axis Terminal," pointillist tones flutter in and out before sharp, sequenced chord progressions overtake them. As the piece continues to build, vocoder hovers above thickened basslines and you feel lost in a dystopian sci-fi novel. But ultimately, Chambers pop sensibilities are most evident on the mini-masterpiece, "Camembert Symphony." Pushed along by the constant thrum of a drum machine, multiple melodies are interwoven, wrapping themselves tightly around you. Each soaring synth glues the song deeper into your mind before fading away into the sonic ether. Cut to vinyl at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin. Limited to 500 copies only." -Digitalis.

Title: Sub-Aquatic Meditation
Format: LP
Label: Aguirre
Country: Belgium
Price: $24.00
"Panabrite is the solo project of Seattle-based Norman Chambers, utilizing analog synthesis, vintage drum machines, various effects and occasional guitar. Inspired by science fiction, new age music, soundtracks and library production music, nature/science documentaries, and vintage electronic sounds. His first LP release Sub Aquatic Meditation is an exciting record replete with underwater tunes. The outer space & the deep blue sea collide into two sides of spellbinding adventures reminiscent of the early work of Oneohtrix Point Never, Jürgen Müller and Dolphins Into The Future. Panabrite works in the hazy, analog synth-laden zone between kosmische drift and new age waft. He launches beatless symphonies of fibrillating, smeared whorls and drones that make you feel like the star of a weird nature documentary or a sci-fi blockbuster from 1977. Chambers excels at evoking both the intimate and the epic with his scrupulously wrought arpeggios and ostinatos. Norm also runs the fantastic Lunar Atrium blog and has previously released tapes and CD-Rs on Digitalis, Hobo Cult Records, Cylindrical Habitat Modules and Gift Tapes." -Aguirre.

Music for pipe organ Stiehr-Mockers 1848, bird calls, baroque violin, tin whistle, boîtes à bourdons, landscape piano, motorized bow, Standuino Pi synth, microphones, hurgy toys, AM radio, church bells, uilleann pipes, and hulusi. Pancrace is an improvising quintet comprising French, British, and Austrian performers. The members include Prune Bécheau, Arden Day, Julien Desailly, Léo Maurel, and Jan Vysocky. Pancrace is also the name of the church in Dangolsheim Alsace located next to where the instrument inventor Léo Maurel lives. Maurel makes ingeniously designed instruments inspired by the hurdy gurdy. The recording emerged from a disruption of the traditional elements within the church, namely the church organ which was prepared inside out whilst the performers challenged its gregarious authority with an array of constructed and modified instruments. On Pancrace, one can hear many of these shape-shifting instruments and devices being twiddled without quite knowing which are bowed, plucked, hammered, or rubbed. The results are a maelstrom of sound and song which see-saw between the harrowing and the sublime with incredible detail to sonic content. Pancrace instigates proceedings in the confinement of an organ; a cyclops puffing its continuous and raucous breath only to be woken by instruments who, like horseflies, mischievously start tormenting proceedings with microtones and striated polyrhythms. The journey ends four sides later with the language of the birds imposing an unadorned silence on the church. Edition of 500." - Penultimate Press.

1998 release. “Voted one of the top 50 records of 1999 by the writers and critics of The Wire, Partitas for Long Strings is the first album in 12 years to document Paul Panhuysens work with long string installations. Included with the CD is a 32-page booklet which details the history of Paul Panhuysens work with installations through pictures and text.” - XI. "Since 1982 Panhuysen has created over 200 such installations, playing the strings with his fingers, connecting them to pianos, letting them vibrate in the wind, always changing, always finding new sounds, and doing so with a particularly good sense of how the strings should look, and how they should relate to the architecture around them" --Tom Johnson. "Two aspects were of central interest to him: different tunings and density of sound. He made an installation in the large space of Het Apollohuis, stretching four strings lengthwise and attaching them to the wooden wall on the far end, which served as a resonator. He did not use automatons or electric amplification. He played the strings by brushing them, walking back and forth at an even pace. His aim was to make his playing as continuous and even as possible. For each partita he recorded his playing four times, superimposing these recordings over each other and listening to the earlier recordings over headphones whilst playing. The total sound of each partita is produced by sixteen strings. The three partitas differ in the systems according to which the strings are tuned. These tunings can be regarded as the score for each piece. In Partita I all strings are tuned to the same pitch. In Partita II and III each string is tuned differently, and after each take they were tuned to new pitches... The result is a considerable difference in overall texture between the three pieces." --René van Peer.

Title: Twenty-Three Carillon Sudokus (Number Made Visible - Number Made Audible)
Format: LP
Label: Edition Telemark
Country: Germany
Price: $29.00
"Carillon Sudokus is the sonic counterpart to Oog & Oor (Eye & Ear), the last work that Dutch sound and visual artist Paul Panhuysen (1934-2015) realized. Oog & Oor was a design made with his daughter Sappho Panhuysen for a temporary installation in the lighted column of the Rietveld bus shelter next to the town hall of Eindhoven. It is a further development from Eight Double Sudokus, a series of large-scale prints exhibited at Museum De Pont in Tilburg in 2012. Both designs were created using sudoku puzzles and comprise various shapes of different colors whose structure was derived from the number sequences present in individual sudokus. Panhuysen used number systems such as magic squares, the Fibonacci series and the golden ratio in much of his art because he felt that instead of limiting his artistic freedom, such systems allowed him to make new discoveries and realize works that transcended his own imagination. René van Peer describes the composition in the liner notes: "A system is evidently at work behind the order of colours and shapes in these prints. On the other hand it is far from obvious what the underlying order actually is. Coloured bands and arcs converge in a rhythmic play of lines. Some originate from the same point, joining to form a right angle or part of a circle. Others touch only at the point or remain loose ends in a wave of motion. The orderliness of the structure and the erratic behaviour of the straight and curved lines strive for predominance in the series." These principles can also be applied to pitch and musical phrases. For Eight Double Sudokus, Panhuysen composed eight pieces for piano that were heard during the exhibition. For Oog & Oor, he envisioned music for the carillon, a bell tower on the roof of the Eindhoven town hall. The original idea was to generate 365 sudoku-based pieces, one for each day of the year that the installation was to be shown. In the end, around 50 pieces were realized in collaboration with town carillonneur Rosemarie Seuntiëns. Side A of this LP contains 11 pieces played live by Seuntiëns on the ceremonial ending of Oog & Oor on August 28, 2015. Side B features 12 pieces played mechanically by the carillon. Comes in full-color gatefold sleeve with printed inner sleeve; Liner notes by René van Peer; Edition of 300." - Edition Telemark.

""First vinyl issue (and an expanded one, yet!) of the taste-tastic 2008 set recorded by Devin Flynn and Gary Panter, just prior to their reconfiguration as a trio with Ross Goldstein (who only guests hereupon). I will be damned (and I mean truly damned) if I can recall who set this project in motion, but once it was started it rolled like the blimp of eternity it so closely resembles. Gary and Devin had been doing odd, punchy keyboard/guitar juke-a-thons for a while by then, spinning their way into the bellies of classic 60s tunes, then clicking their mandibles in sequences they thought of themselves. Their music was always weird and psychedelic in a vague, bad-trippy sort of way, and I guess the idea was to try and capture that. Go Outside -- while on the short side, playing-time-wise -- is really a transitional gush. By including a new version of Garys classic "Tornader to the Tates" amidst rumbles from the stoner bush, the album provides a loving bridge from the old to the new. Not that its really needed, but what the hell? If you enjoyed the sacred swirl of Honeycombs of Chakras (FTR 134LP, 2013) (and who didnt?), youll def dig the pants off of this one.

2015 release. "Monster Melodies present the original soundtrack of Amore (1973), a film by Henry Chapier, composed and performed by Vangelis Papathanassiou. An unreleased recording dating from July 1973. Vangelis Papathanassiou was the composer of the group Aphrodites Child, he composed the bands music and the songs of Demis Roussos. Later Vangelis became famous for the soundtrack of the film Chariots of Fire (1981). In 1974, Henry Chapier after several atypical movie, An American Summer (1968), Sex-Power (1970) and Hi, Jerusalem (1972), directed the fiction film Amore. Here is an extract from the Divan dHenry Chapier interview with Papathanassiou directed by Jean Claude Longin 2011: "This is happening in a city constantly threatened with death. At the time, I thought, there were a lot of documentaries and that I would do it differently. I imagined Venice in the guise of a heroine, a very beautiful woman, Sonia Petrovna, a girl of the Venetian aristocracy ailing, representing a page of history that has passed. But the fact remains that in the frame, in the subject, there was a little journalistic approach. Also because one of the actors, Daniel Quenaud, was presumed to be a reporter, sent to consider the merits of an architectural plan which would save Venice. So in the agreement, there is a slight journalist contamination. Otherwise there was also a love story... I think its more of a fiction film than a documentary nonetheless." Chapier had this to say about going about the score: "The first time, it was at the Olympia, at the bands concert. I found the music to be trippy and wonderful, I, who above all, loved the Pink Floyd. I thought the Pink Floyd, I could never get them for my films. So I stormed in backstage at the Olympia, I said to Vangelis, Listen you are made to be an independent composer. Things clicked between us instantly and so I asked if he wanted the script. He told me, no, we will see, me, I improvise from images. This is a technique that is practiced today, but back then, it was unheard of. We did not have people like him, who recorded the sound on sixteen tracks, playing all the instruments themselves and who already had in mind how they would edit the soundtrack." Colored vinyl.

Title: Aeonflower

Country: UK
Price: $20.00
“An exploration of warped, dream-like atmosphere and taught, noise-ingrained electronics, Paper Dollhouse has evolved from the solo work of Astrud Steehouder into an expansive, cinematic project now involving visual artist Nina Bosnic. Recorded with a stronger focus on electronic processes and with a deeper, light-starved aesthetic, Aeonflowers emboldened use of crushed-noise dynamics takes the London-based groups acclaimed 2012 debut, A Box Painted Black, into darker, murkier, and more thrilling territory. Aeonflower is the slow descent of a newly discorporated spirit into a fogged, neon lagoon, a drowned world still lit. If the first album was a box of raw secrets with hints of obscured folk roots, Aeonflower is the endless rain of expression, experience, and change. On this outing, both artists vocals are expressive, forgoing complex lyrical concerns for minimal text invested with emotive power. Opener "Oracle" bleeds into "Stand," with the first of Steehouders haunted vocals, a fragile minimalism augmented by barren guitar. "Helios" sees a drum machine kick and ride cymbal pin down a dark, enveloping vocal duet until "Psyche" obliterates it all with billowing noise, a thrilling shock to the system. The swirling synths and suppressed emotion of "Your Heart" peak in the centerpiece "Diane," a shadowy piece highlighting Steehouders minimalist approach. Side two acts as a mini-suite, with Diamanda Galás-inspired vocal abstractions and walls of sound coming down with standout ambient track "Black Flowers." Dark and light interplay beautifully on album closer "Siren," a turbulent if ambiguous build-up of harmony and noise. This cassette edition follows a vinyl edition on the Night School label, and coincides with UK press and radio support and a UK tour.” - Bird.

Title: Stundum
Format: Double LP
Label: El Paraiso
Country: Denmark
Price: $30.00
"2014 repress of the second album from Papir, originally released in 2011. Papir is a trio from Copenhagen, Denmark who have played together for years under various names while slowly, but surely, perfecting their unique brand of semi-improvisational psychedelic rock. Based around Christoffer Brøchmanns complex and powerful drumming, Papir creates instrumental journeys -- organic structures of sound that move forward with the hypnotic groove of Can or electric Miles Davis through euphoric peaks, thunderous riffs and beautiful cosmic dronescapes. Nicklas Sørensens guitar playing displays his love for fuzzed-out psychedelic rock from the 1960s and 1970s but also has a highly melodic aspect that reveals his admiration for German heroes Michael Rother and Manuel Göttsching. Similarly Christian Becher Clausens bass playing covers a wide palette of ideas and sounds -- sometimes using the instrument as a solid groove-maker and other times as a tool for creating spacy soundscapes and drones. As a unit the three members achieve what the great power trios of the 1960s did at their most fertile: the ability to combine each aspect of the band into a whole that surpasses the sum of its parts. This is music to lose oneself in -- music to swim in." - El Paraiso.

The Italian graphic designer and musician Marco Papiro deliberately plays with different forms of religious music, and loosely oscillates between the spiritual and the illusory world, starting with the cover, where we can see a self-portrait of his father disguised as a saint with a steering wheel in place of the halo. As for the voices, they are deceptive in a double sense -- not only because they seem to promise eternal bliss, but also because they are completely artificial, and have been masterfully created -- like everything here -- from scratch, with an array of aged modular synthesizers. Its the thin line between the human warmth and the eeriness of its simulation that makes up the fascination of the music on Teopatia, which, by the way, is the term used to describe an indirect divine contact. Though this record might be too odd to become a religious classic, it might very well help future generations understand the turmoil of an early 21st-century youth converting to synthesizers after growing up with Catholicism.” - Planam.

Title: Avventure Lontane
Format: LP
Label: Some Fine Legacy
Country: Germany
Price: $29.00
"Defying categorization, the first Papiro LP titled Avventure Londane moves into the sonic territories of New Electronics, while at the same clearly differentiating itself from these genres by its restless and disturbing mood. The music on this fascinating album has a melodic, upbeat character, harking back to analogue synthesizer days, which was extremely popular in Germany in the late 70s and early 80s. Papiros music might remind the works of Cluster or Asmus Tietchens Hematic Sunset, or even Bruce Haack, but is so original to stand on its own. Papiro plays VCS3, MS-10, Jupiter 4, String Melody, YS-100, DSR-2000, Rhythm Ace, Electronic Organ, Guitar, Shehnai and Piano. Avventure lontane means Adventures that happened far away or Long gone adventures. Both interpretations refer to the experience Papiro had almost every night as a child, when his imaginary friends popped in and took him away to whatever places they came from. Those memories helped him find a structure and surely have influenced the whole mood. Every track is built around one particular episode. Most of it took place in the dark, so please switch off the light while listening to this record. Papiro is a graphic designer, violin player, record collector and electronic music maker with a particular affinity for machines from the early days, such as the VCS3 Synthesizer. Early concerts under his own name sometimes consisted of a single chord, held for 30 minutes at high volume. In the studio, meanwhile, he enjoyed endless modular patching and the virtues of overdubbing, which resulted in the album Avventure Lontane. This rare LP is presented in a fantastic fluorescent sleeve, so all hail to the groovy glow-in-the-dark cover, which fits the music like a dream." -Some Fine Legacy/A Tree In A Field. 2006 release.

Title: The Golden Years
Format: LP
Label: Dark Entries
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Parade Ground has always been the duo of brothers Jean-Marc and Pierre Pauly from Brussels, Belgium formed in 1981. Taking cues from Post-Punk, Coldwave, Dada and Surrealism, Parade Ground channeled suffering, tension and rage through pulsing synthesizers, skeletal guitar, severe bass and Jean-Marcs expressive vocals as the most melodic and emotional instrument. The Golden Years is an 11-song, career-spanning collection of Parade Grounds long out-of-print 7” and 12” singles as well as rare compilation tracks from the pioneers of emotional body music created during 1982-1988. Parade Ground first appeared on the Nationale Rockmeeting LP in 1982, striking straight to the heart with the passionate plea “I Shut My Eyes.” Later that year the brothers met Daniel B. and Patrick Codenys of Front 242 beginning a collaborative partnership that continues to present day. In 1983 they released their debut 3-song 7” EP Moan On The Sly on the New Dance label, musically a hybrid of Joy Division and Fad Gadget. 1984 brought further explorations into the world of electronic body music with the 3-song Man In A Trance EP and 2 tracks on the live concert compilation Mask Promotion both records released on Front 242s Mask Music label. The following year the single Took Advantage/Moral Support 12” was released incorporating then, state-of-the-art modular synthesizers programmed by Daniel B. and back-up vocals from Flo Sullivan (A Formal Sigh, Shiny Two Shiny). Then in 1987 the brothers collaborated with Colin Newman of British post-punk band Wire, who produced and lent his vocals, guitars and keyboards to two songs ("Moans"/"Action Replay") while Daniel B. produced flipside "Gold Rush" on the Dual Perspective EP that stands alongside 80s anthems from Tears for Fears, Modern English, Echo & The Bunnymen. Finally in 1988 their debut album Cut Up was released on Play It Again Sam Records and featured the singles Strange World and Hollywood. In 1993 the brothers wrote and composed the vocals on two Front 242 albums Up Evil and Off. After 15 years of silence the boys released their second album Rosary in 2007 and continue to write new material and tour with their extensive catalog of dark dance classics. All tracks have been carefully remastered by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. Each LP includes a 6-page press kit with lyrics, discography, photos and liner notes by Daniel B. of Front 242. The history of Belgian electronic music would not be complete without a trip through “The Golden Years” of Parade Ground." - Dark Entries.

Title: I Love Thousands Every Summer
Format: 7"
Label: Thin Wrist
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"Inspired by Coleridges opium-induced reverie, “Kubla Khan,” Nedelle Torrisi named her band Paradise to evoke a perfect place,
the opposite of hell— a place where, as the poem describes, a person exists in perfect harmony with their creativity. 
Torrisis Paradise is a place of innocence before cynicism, one where love is still king. Her music embraces romantic sentiments 
and an intimate earnestness that invites listeners to abandon their own sense of self consciousness. In Paradises music, Torrisi writes love songs that long to fulfill the unfinished figures of a lovers fleeting thoughts and utterances. 
In A Lovers Discourse, Roland Barthes wrote that "The lover speaks in bundles…but does not integrate these sentences
on a higher level…but all together they make up the love story." 
With Paradise, Torrisi weaves these unresolved emotions and stories into love songs. I Love Thousands Every Summer is Paradises first release. Limited Edition Deluxe 7" Vinyl (Download Included). Nine 7" x 7" full color inserts housed in letterpressed vellum envelope." - Thin Wrist.

Title: Movimento Perpetuo
Format: LP

Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"CARLOS PAREDES was once almost hit by the famed Fado singer Amalia Rodrigues, while performing at her home. Rumor has it that this was her reaction whenever she was deeply moved by someones artistry. Paredes was one of the greatest Portuguese guitarists, and a symbol of the Portuguese culture-not simply a great composer, but one of the men behind the world-wide understanding of his instrument and his country. The Portuguese guitar is an instrument that dates back several hundred years. It was built according to different standards around the country, but by the time Paredes began playing it, it had been generally agreed upon the construction: a short-necked, wide-bodied instrument with twelve-strings strung in six courses comprising two steel strings each. It has a distinctive tuning mechanism and it is most notably associated with the traditional Portuguese popular music known as fado. Carlos Paredes, "the Man with the thousand Fingers," passed away in 2004, after a long, ten-year fight with a disease that tragically prevented him from playing his instrument in those final years of his life. His musical voice has never really been stilled-but this reissue of the Guitarra Portuguesa and Movimento Perpetuo LPs marks the first time they have ever been released in the United States and the first time they have been repressed anywhere, since 1983. The artwork for both records is a near-perfect copy of the 1967 and 1971 originals, complete with original Portuguese liner notes (and English translations for the unfortunates among us who do not speak the lingua portuguesa)." -Drag City.

Title: What/If/They Both Could Fly

Country: Norway
Price: $18.00
"On a sultry July evening on an intimate stage at Kongsberg Jazz Festival, Norway, two elder statesmen of improvised music -- one wearing a grey shirt, the other sporting a Thunder Pussy T-shirt -- stepped up to the platform. What followed resembled an in-depth conversation between two old friends and sparring partners -- one that ranged from the amicable to the argumentative, from hush to harmony. Now, Norways adventurous Rune Grammofon label is releasing a 40-minute recording of that event. What/If/They Both Could Fly is only the second time this titanic pair has appeared as a duo on record. Their paths have crossed sporadically over the years: Evan Parker has guested in Joe McPhees Survival Unit III group, and they have frequently made up a trio with saxophonist Daunik Lazro. But their only release together was Chicago Tenor Duets, back in 2000, praised in Jazz Times for its mixture of lyricism and complexity. Evan Parker was 68 when this concert was recorded and by now, music just seems to beat within him, sure as his own heartbeat. McPhee, at 73, is the elder here, but his zaps of energy on the tiny pocket trumpet, and his thoughtful, exploratory lines and throbbing soprano sax overtones are played as vigorously as a man half his age. Listen to the amazing zigzags of interlocking sound about six minutes into opening track "What." Hear the microtonal mayhem swarming at the start of "They Both Could Fly." The duo never seeks to dazzle with virtuosity, but their total mastery of their instruments allows them to dance around each other and match each others moves point-for-point and blow-for-blow. Joe has played in groups with Peter Brötzmann, Kent Kessler, Mats Gustafsson, Paal Nilssen-Love, Dominic Duval, and Joe Giardullo. He appeared with Evan Parkers trio on the legendary Redwood Session (1995). Since the early 1960s, there are few jazz and improv musicians Evan hasnt worked with; he has also cropped up unexpectedly on records by everyone from Scott Walker and Charlie Watts to Spring Heel Jack and British comedian Vic Reeves. A founder of independent free music label Incus, he now runs his own label Psi, releasing core recordings by himself and others. The duo improvises moment by moment, but theres a tangible, overarching arc that these two veterans instinctively understand -- a depth of vision that lifts them head and shoulders above their younger peers. Play this and youll believe two men can fly." - Rune Grammofon.

Format: LP

"British free-jazz phenomenon Evan Parker with electronic and tape noise artist John Wiese in a set of real-time evolving improvisations intended for maximum volume. Vinyl version of the CD released earlier this year (2010), but slightly different, containing all the final mixes and edits of the sessions with a new and more intense mastering for the maximum listening experience. C-Section finds density in scarcity -- deep, glacial muck bubbles emerge beneath Parkers inhuman circular breathing, only to plunge into an incessant clatter of industrial landscape. Evan Parker is a free-sax legend, best known for his work with Keith Rowe (AMM), Anthony Braxton, Joe McPhee, Cecil Taylor, Peter Brotzmann (including on his epochal Machine Gun), Derek Bailey, and for his inspired, individualistic take on musical freedom. Being the U.K.s equivalent of Peter Brotzmann means that as far as free-jazz saxophonists go, Evan Parker has very few equals. Hugely respected with a rich and varied back catalogue, Parker has graced the cream of the free-jazz racks for the last forty years. John Wiese is an artist and composer from Los Angeles, California. His recent works have a focus on installation and multi-channel diffusions, as well as scoring for large ensembles. He has toured extensively throughout the world, covering the U.S., U.K., Europe, Scandinavia, Japan, Australia, and New Zealand. He is also a founding member of the concrète grindcore band Sissy Spacek. The LP is mastered by Diane Maroney, cut by Rashad Becker at D&M, in a limited edition of 330 hand-numbered copies, pressed on 140g vinyl and comes in a poly-lined inner sleeve. It is packaged in a pro-press jacket, which is itself housed in a two-tone silkscreened PVC sleeve with interweaving geometric designs. All artwork by Kathryn Politis and Bill Kouligas." -Pan.

Title: Slight Freedom
Format: LP
Label: Eremite
Country: USA
Price: $32.00
"Slight Freedom, Jeff Parkers first ever solo record, presents the first opportunity to hear the guitarist in fully self-revealed circumstances. Recorded in 2013 and 2014 in the Hollywood Hills as he relocated from Chicago to Los Angeles, Parker combines the dark tonal palette and percussive attack hes known for with real-time processing elements and field recordings, deftly crafting a unique world of solo guitar music - multi-lingual, mysterious, alive with extraordinary sonic events, with a sturdy intelligence in charge and a raw home-style vibe. Jeff Parker is a longtime member of Tortoise. He creates works that explore the contrary relationships between tradition and technology, and improvisation and composition. Slight Freedom is yet another defining moment for Parker in 2016, a year that already includes a brilliant ensemble album (The New Breed) and Tortoises 25th anniversary tour and record (The Catastrophist). Parkers title composition sets the albums cavernous mood. Terse lines and ricocheting loops morph into a gnarly ambient section that resembles Neil Young droning out over a copy of Discreet Music (1975). Parker creates a different sort of ambient space in his take on Frank Oceans "Super Rich Kids", bending the melody around a bossa nova rhythm into a Moodsville tone poem. Parker makes an extraordinary long-form statement out of Chad Taylors "Mainz", a piece he first recorded with Taylor and bassist Chris Lopes on the album Bright Light In Winter (2011). Twice the length of the trio recording, the multi-layered soliloquy finds Parker leaping from the high rung to damn near orchestral heights, pushing his techniques and concepts to their breaking points. Its one of the great solo performances youll hear from a musician this year. To say "Lush Life" comes with formidable baggage is an understatement. Parker achieves instant classic status with a rendition that sounds beamed-in from a decommissioned satellite - burned out, covered in space grit, yet still formally nuanced and beautifully reflective of Strayhorns world-weary lyrics. Mastered by Helge Sten at Audio Virus. Pressed on 180 gram vinyl by RTI; Presented in a heavyweight Stoughton "laserdisc" sleeve, printed by Stoughton; Silkscreened by Alan Sherry of Siwa, who also silkscreened the labels and the inner sleeves; Edition of 850." - Eremite.

French musician Bernard Parmegiani has composed Chants Magnetiques in 1974, one of the most sought-after Parmegiani albums - a monster rarity which is almost impossible to find. This obscure album was composed around the same time as De Natura Sonorum during the mid-70s, a particularly important and effervescent era for Bernard Parmegiani. Indeed, as if one can say that De Natura Sonorum is one of the best of Parmegianis serious works in terms of technics-sound-harmonic-tone, then there is no doubt that Chants Magnétiques is his chef-doeuvre on his dark side, the Parmegianis hidden face that few people know nowadays. A collection of 10 united tracks under the title album name Chants Magnétiques/Magnetic Fields - titled before Jean Michel Jarres album - and musically, in summary, more experimental, more organic, more spacey album in comparison to his famous INA-GRM works. This reissue on CD for the first time will rejoice all music lovers from Edgard Varèse, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Tod Dockstader to Musica Elettronica Viva, Nurse With Wound, Organum, Conrad Schnitzler. Official remastered edition from the original master tapes with the original cover sleeve." - Fractal.

Title: De Natura Sonorum
Format: Double LP
Label: Recollection GRM
Country: Austria
Price: $31.00
"De Natura Sonorum (1975): Premiered at the Salle Wagram in Paris on June 3rd 1975. A suite of 12 movements, divided into two series of six. The first series comprises six related movements, usually organized in pairs, electronic sounds with instrumental and more rarely, concrete sounds: Incidences/resonances bring into play controlled resonances akin to sounds of concrete origin in a process that helps to expand the variable electronic sound sources. Here, incidents are opposed to one-off accidents in the second movement: Accidents/Harmoniques (Accidents/Harmonics). In the second movement, very short events of instrumental origin change the harmonic tone of the continuum they interrupt or overlap. Moreover, the high notes are underplayed, which stimulates the attention given to other phenomena generally hidden by the melodic form applied to the instrumental play. Géologie sonore (Sound Geology) is similar to a flight over an area where different sound layers come to the surface one after the other. When seen from high above, instrumental and electronic sounds seem to fuse. Dynamique de la resonance (Dynamics of Resonance) is a microphonic exploration of a single sound resonating through different forms of percussion. LEtude élastique (Elastic Study) places together various sounds produced by touching elastic or instrumental skins (balloons, doumbeks) or vibrating strings and a number of instrumental gestures close to this touch, using electronic processes to generate white noise. Conjugaison du timbre (Conjugated Tone), the last movement in the series, uses the same substance to apply rhythmic forms onto a perpetually varying tone continuum. The second series of movements draws its inspiration from concrete and electronic sources rather than instrumental ones. Incidences/battements (Incidences/ Beatings) is a reminder of the first movement in the first series, which then quickly moves into Natures éphémères (Ephemeral Natures): an ephemeral play on instrumental and electronic sounds, singled out by their internal trajectory rather than by the material itself. Matières induites (Induced Matters): just as molecular effervescence triggers changes of state, it seems that the different states of these sound materials can be generated by each other or through induction processes. In Ondes croisées (Crossed Waves), the pizz vibrations interfere with somehow visible water drops on the surface of a similar material. Pleins et déliés (Downstrokes and Upstrokes) can be listened to as the energies absorbed in the motion of bouncing bodies, while hollow bubbles and points bring together some peoples gravity and others downwards movements. The work finishes with Points contre champs (Reverse Angle Points). Here, the notion of perspective of the different sound threads weaving a kind of network, or field, traps the occasional iterative elements in the foreground and progressively absorbs them, giving more space for the angle -- and the chanted sound -- to grow. --Bernard Parmigiani; De Natura Sonorum whose title echoes Lucretius De rerum natura, similarly explores the multiplicity of sound possibilities. This profuse work, with countless discoveries and dazzling intuitions, has influenced several generations of composers and remains a truly seminal piece in the experimental music soundscape. De Natura Sonorum, one of Parmegianis masterpieces, has left an indelible mark on the classical period of electroacoustic music. At last, it is being reissued on vinyl and for the first time this includes the whole of its 12 movements." - Christian Zanési & François Bonnet. Housed in a gatefold sleeve.

"From the very first moment, caught by the musical tone heard from inside a train, the trip offered by this piece, woven with different materials, triggers in us various climates able to give our imagination power over sounds: the power to guide them through our secret mazes rather than to blindly follow them like Panurge. This form of (auditory) contemplation thus attempts to enable us to lose ourselves outside our far too familiar and usual territories. Perhaps, in looking too hard, man eventually stops listening. And, as I said when creating the piece in 1970, the eye, now a solitary wanderer only has ears for what assaults it." Dedans-Dehors (1977): "When listening to the sound material, we metamorphose the inside into an outside. This notion of metamorphosis is one of the principles that leads the course of the musical suite, reflecting changes (fluidsolid passages: water/ice/fire) or movements (ebb/flow/wave, inspiration/expiration) or inside-outside passages (door/individual/crowd). Thus, the perceived object is not entirely what we would have liked it to be. Our music brings us closer to some while it takes us away from others: each with their own inside." --Bernard Parmegiani; Cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin, June 2012.

Parmegiani was a major figure of electro acoustic music and member of the historic GRM (Groupe de Recherches Musicales) where he composed an important work of concert, among which is the masterpiece: De Natura Sonorum(REGRM 009LP). The work of Parmegiani, a virtuoso of the magnetic tape, is widely known to the public even without their knowledge, through the famous title he composed for the TV program Stade 2, for the French radio France Inter, and also through the jingle adopted by Roissy-Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris (1971-2005). Bernard Parmegiani produced a large number of jingles, soundtracks, and indicatives, but Rock stands apart in his repertoire. He recorded it without any outside constraints in his own studio. On listening to Rock, one is reminded of John Carpenteror François de Roubaix: a work which mixes the sounds of the TR-808 drum-machine, Synthi AKS, Farfisa organ, and Clavinet.

"The pairing of the influential French electronic musician, Bernard Parmegiani, and Australian sound artist Philip Samartzis on the Immer/Sound - Transparency split is a match that makes perfect sense. Parmegianis body of work is massive and has been a driving force behind the evolution of electro-acoustic music. His contribution to the split, Immer/Sound, is a continuation of his exploration into composed acoustic sounds, which begins with a reverberated snare hit and evolves into a head spinning journey that one could only imagine listening to on a full sound system. On the split-side, Philip crafts a carefully plotted and composed piece, Transparency, which sends the listener in and out of a hazy world of electronic hisses, hums, and intonations. This split celebrates Bernards performance and involvement in Philips produced Immersion festival, which is coming up on its third event in September. Although generations apart, both artists have laid common ground in their music, which is evident in this exciting new split LP between these two heavyweight electronic musicians."

Title: Maison Rose
Format: LP
Label: Souffle Continu
Country: France
Price: $27.00
"RSD 2017 release. Late addition. Souffle Continu Records present a reissue of Emmanuelle Parrenins Maison Rose, originally released in 1977. An album such as this obviously owes a lot to the atmosphere in which it was recorded. It took place in Fromentel, Normandy, in a farm converted into a studio by the producer Jacques Denjean, known for his work with Dionne Warwick or Françoise Hardy, as well as having been a member of the Double Six. It was also in Fromentel that Denjean would record two fantastic albums with Albert Marcoeur. When Emmanuelle Parrenin followed in his footsteps a year later, she was in good company: the sound engineer at the studio was her partner. Five years before, Bruno Menny, the sound engineer partner, recorded his first and only album, but what an album: in electroacoustic terms we can hear things which make him appear as the spiritual son of his mentor Xenakis. What makes Maison Rose unique is exactly this fusion between the two conceptions of Emmanuelle Parrenin and Bruno Menny, creating a perfect marriage of tradition and experimentation. The tradition comes from the songs collected by Emmanuelle Parrenin in rural areas, in a similar vein to the work carried out by Alan Lomax and Shirley Collins. The experimentation is in the sound captured by Bruno Menny, who both arranged and recorded the album. This is not to forget those who came with their guitar (Denis Gasser), or their lyrics (Jean-Claude Vannier). Humble and non-demonstrative singing, with melodies are reminiscent of songs to calm a childs nightmares, side-by-side with a pronounced rhythmic intensity at certain points, such as on "Topaze" where the drums in particular evoke the motorik of Faust. A real haven of peace, Maison Rose is enchanting with its aura of mystery and spirituality, with soft, gentle songs which seem both ancestral and futurist. Originally published by Ballon Noir in 1977, this album follows on from other folk marvels such as Le Galant Noyé (1975) from the pre-Mélusine period. If comparisons had to be risked, Vashti Bunyan, Linda Perhacs, Joanna Newsom, Collie Ryan, Shirley Collins, Trees Community, Sourdeline, and Véronique Chalot would come to mind. High definition remastered audio from the original master tapes. Licensed from Emmanuelle Parrenin.

"RSD 2017 release. Late addition. It was some line up, even for the most open-minded: Emmanuelle Parrenin and her musicians, in 1981, opened for the Clash in Paris, at the Zénith! Unsurprisingly, the crowd roared the name of the English band as soon as the French musicians appeared on stage. Didier Malherbe responded with a saxophone improvisation with all the others joining in behind. If we believe the musician improvising, rather than following the cult playlist of 1977s Maison Rose (FFL 024LP), was what saved them. Created from previously unpublished recordings from 1978, 1981, and 1982, Pérélandra is a wonderful array of the experiments so unique to Emmanuelle Parrenin. Rather than being improvised, like the legendary show at the Zénith, these experimental tracks have a more composed instrumental form and were conceived for choreographers: mainly Pérélandra, staged with dancers from Carolyn Carlsons troupe, but also Nomade, some of the sonic environment of which can be discovered here in (superb) bits and pieces found on cassettes. In total, just under a dozen tracks are presented, including contributions on bandoneon from the Argentinian Juan José Mosalini, electric piano from the ex-Double Six Jacques Denjean, or elsewhere great electroacoustic work from the wonderful and ever-faithful Bruno Menny. All of this steeped in a sonic mix typical of the most way-out acid-folk freak-outs of the 1970s. Didier Malherbe (who just before was still playing in Gong with Daevid Allen) is on three tracks, his heady graceful agility instantly identifiable, adding to a magical and spiritual universe created with spinet dulcimer, flute, hurdy-gurdy, and other-worldly vocals (amongst other ingredients). Though very difficult to label, Pérélandra could evoke a meeting between Trees Community, Heron and Robin Williamson with Ellen Fullman, Meredith Monk and Ligeti. The whole thing is steeped in an atmosphere as intense as the ecstatic hymns of Hildegard von Bingen. Licensed from Emmanuelle Parrenin.

This 2-CD set presents the most remarkable Swedish underground band, known in a later incarnation and continuation as International Harvester and Träd, Gräs och Stenar (Trees, Grass and Stones), and features both intricate studio recordings and orgiastic live performances. Pärson Sound never released any records in their time and that is why a very few have heard about them at all. The recordings date from 1967/68 while the band explored unknown musical territory as well as inner- and outer space. In 1968 they were invited by Andy Warhol to play at the opening of his exhibition: Screens, Films, Boxes, Clouds and a Book, at the museum of Modern Art in Stockholm and also opened for the Doors. Influenced by the musical concepts of Terry Riley, Pärson Sound worked at discovering and perfecting their own unique approach towards the mixing of rock and minimalism. They created some of the most remarkable psych- trance-drone-pre-noise music-rock sounds ever recorded. Pärson Sounds music described contexts, interplay and organic growth and shaped a conception of the world -- an opposite of fragmentation, individual achievements and intellectual construction. This world was to be perceived as one body, a whole of inviolable parts. The minimalist repetition with slight changes gives associations of a slow growth, of cyclic process, of breathing, pulse, life, movement and machines. The persistent repetition gives the listener an opportunity to discover the sounds, to meditate, to go into the music, join the same journey. Many times one can discover a relationship with music of other cultures. In comparison the music of the Western world can feel cursory, unreliable -- as a fear of entering deep into feeling. Pärson Sounds compositions often consist of harsh structures -- a rhythm pattern with ostinato bass, a melodic figure -- which forms a base for improvisation. Other songs have a more thoroughly elaborated structure that still leaves room for variation. The moment, the audience, the location formed their music. Their key phrase was We, Here and Now! With time, the music came to have an increasing religious or shamanistic streak -- with a raised demand of intensity, presence and warmth -- a striving for euphoria and ecstasy.

Edition of 300. “Aulos Second Reed is a massive development in the transverse music created by Part Wild Horses Mane On Both Sides. Pascal Nichols and Kelly-Jayne Jones go outside of themselves and become a whole listening unit with a singular pulse. Side A is elegance personified. Using what appears at first to be a two person small Gakaku style setup which leads the listener through occasional tympani playing and a flute response that sounds like it came a hundred years before this time. As each player moves infrequently through their meditation, treated field recordings engage the real time instruments to create an authentic ceremonial experience. The B side remains as patient and expertly conceived but with more focus on collaged components. Sounding like a creaking vessel that does not want to dock. The entire side should be a lock groove.

"Utterly stunning album from the long-running (and just-married) duo of Kelly Jayne Jones and Pascal Nichols, better known to the world as Part Wild Horses Mane on Both Sides. Theyve moved so far, now, from their Japanese-esque psychedelicised beginnings back in the mid-00s where celebratory flute and drums cascaded into one another like competing tsunamis. Not that what they were doing back then wasnt already brilliant -- in fact, they heralded what felt, at the time, like it might be a whole new era of British drone (a movement that never really came to pass). Its just that, since then, theyve become such masters of their craft that its hard to feel anything but awe upon listening to Pike/Portent. For starters, they do less. In other words, they seem to be as obsessed nowadays with the space between sounds as they do with the sounds themselves. Resonance too. This record sounds like it was recorded in a cave by the ocean, its as simple as that. Secondly, while its still an exploration of the transitory potential of the relationship between the embellished trapezoid drum kit and the naked flute, its just more interrelated, more dynamic, more alive. Jones, in particular, seems to have found the perfect spaces in which to interject complementary and/or jarring sounds (clanking pebbles, pouring water, electronics, etc.). Its almost impossible to consider the result in terms of improvisational music -- its just so considered, so accomplished, so communicative. 140-gram vinyl. Limited edition of 250." - Golden Lab.

Performed by The Gate 5 Ensemble: Harry Partch (director), Danlee Mitchell, Harry Partch, Michael Ranta, Emil Richards, Wallace Snow, Stephen Tosh. Limited edition LP release (180 gram vinyl) with previously unpublished bonus tracks + free download card. "In late 1962 Harry Partch returned to California and began a project that would not only become the bones of a masterwork, Delusion of the Fury, but have a life of its own. In a too-small space within an abandoned Petaluma chick hatchery, Partch gathered the instruments he had designed and built -- new and old -- eager to once again expand the boundaries of his compositional fabric. He learned each individual part as he composed, establishing that it could be played. And On The Seventh Day Petals Fell In Petaluma (1963-64, rev. 1966) was born of his exploration and assembled with that minimum of players over a three-year period. In spite of rough conditions and meager resources Partchs dogged persistence, along with the efforts of his dedicated assistants, eventually succeeded in realizing the 34 verses of expanded duets. With this album we revisit an important work and turning-point, guided by the original Statement Partch wrote for the first commercial release of the piece. Previously only excerpted, it is a voicing of his beliefs that transcends one project to illuminate an entire purpose. We also reprise exquisite notes by the late Bob Gilmore, who distills and explains the story of Petals so clearly and eloquently. No one wants a dead reissue, so by digging into the archives, I am pleased to offer hidden gems. First, The Petals Sessions is an aural glance into the cramped quarters of the recording space, as composer and players labor to bring new notes to life, Harry himself giving direction. The montage ends with a test take by Danlee Mitchell and Michael Ranta that could have easily been a keeper! Finally, we present the original Verse 17. In 1964 Partch wrote two duets that used the Adapted Viola; by the time the piece was finished in 1967, he had excised them. The ending track -- never before released -- brings Harry back to life, playing and recording Adapted Viola for one of the last times. I was completely unaware of this recording until I examined the outtakes and it glows, fifty years on. That Petals ever came to be, like much of Partchs story, stands somewhere between determination and miracle." - Jon Szanto, The Harry Partch Foundation.

"It is an astonishing gift of fate when a creative artist, known to the world for a particular achievement, is suddenly shown in a quite different light thanks to the existence of a single document that has somehow escaped the ruthless culling mechanisms of time. Harry Partchs Bitter Music is such a document, a diary of eight months spent in transient shelters and camps, hobo jungles, basement rooms, and on the open road. This long-lost journal of Harry Partchs wanderings during the Great Depression (from cleaning sewers to having tea with Irish poet W. B. Yeats) is an extraordinary musical portrait of an American pioneer, chronicling his occasionally hilarious and often heartbreaking struggles to forge a new music system outside the classical tradition. This premiere recording of Bitter Music takes the form of readings and collected musical fragments- an aural diary of what was going through Partchs mind and ear during a critical period in his artistic development." - Bridge.

Format: 1 DVD: 140 mins. "Harry Partch (like his friend Anaïs Nin) considered his lifes work to be a letter to the world. His last act was going to be to add the enclosures. He never got around to it. After 20 years of working on the Partch archives, Philip Blackburn has now completed the seven-part Enclosures series as it were on his behalf. Enclosure 7, the culminating DVD of this multimedia series, is a monumental tribute to the most significant works of this American original and iconoclast. It includes new versions of his late masterworks and never-before-seen footage that bring us closer to the real Harry behind the myth. The Dreamer That Remains is a documentary produced by Betty Freeman and directed by Stephen Pouliot in 1972. Here is the directors original cut along with his commentary. If youve never seen Partch or his instruments before, this is the place to start. Delusion of the Fury was his magnum opus; a lifetime of instrument-invention and ideas of ritual theater were poured into this giant work. The 1971 film has been resynched and the soundtrack remastered in 5.1 surround sound. The CBS LPs of this work came with a bonus album of Harry introducing his instruments. Unavailable for years, this DVD features this talk along with a slideshow of the instruments. Revelation in the Courthouse Park was Harrys fusion of current pop idolatry with parallel (only a little more sinister) scenes of ancient Greece. Now you can see excerpts of the original 1960 Illinois production, replete with gymnasts, fireworks, and transvestites. And finally, if you ever wondered how a simple recipe for rose petal jam could turn into a hobo dance and a diatribe about music critics, you are in for a treat."

"In 1985, Philip Blackburn climbed the stairs to an attic in Iowa City and started trying to make sense of the boxes piled up there. They contained a composers lifes work: scrapbooks, tapes, photos, letters, scores, and film reels -- fragile treasures documenting the 20th century from a most unusual viewpoint, perhaps the worlds most original musician: Harry Partch. The idea was to publish them and reveal Harry to the world on his own terms. Not as the crabby, homeless, self-taught microtonal musical weirdo and instrument maker, but as that most American of all artists, a truly independent thinker. With Enclosure 8, the work of bringing them to public attention reaches its apotheosis. The Enclosures series (named for the extras Partch wanted to add to his life-long letter to the world) started appearing in 1995 with a VHS video of four films made in collaboration with the Chicago-based film-maker Madeline Tourtelot. Four CDs, two years and one book later, Enclosure 4 appeared featuring his later films: Delusion of the Fury (his culminating ritual-theater work) and a San Diego Public TV documentary, also on VHS. Now the time has come for these to be issued on DVD, extensively restored, re-synched and digitally-remastered from the extant original prints. Until books and CDs become as obsolete as VHS, the Enclosures series is complete and, taken together with the Harry Partch Collection on New World Records, Partchs entire work is available for the first time. Innovas DVD, Enclosure 8, offers not only a chance to see higher quality versions of previously available material, but it also includes two performances made after Partchs death in 1974: a 1981 staged production of his hitchhiker piece, Barstow, directed by Danlee Mitchell, and a 2006 choreographed version of Castor & Pollux, performed by John Schneiders Ensemble Partch! using replicas of Partchs original set of instruments. Films include: Music Studio -- Harry Partch (1958): Partch takes the viewer on a tour of his Chicago home and plays his microtonal instruments. Includes his demonstration of how the soundtrack for Windsong was made. Windsong (1958): the ancient Greek legend of Daphne and Apollo, transported to Lake Michigan. U.S. Highball (1958; completed 1968): Partch and his ensemble perform a dramatized account of riding the rails during the Depression on a transcontinental hobo trip from California to Chicago. Rotate the Body in All Its Planes (1961): Harrys favorite: a ballet for gymnasts. The DVD is accompanied by a 12-page booklet featuring writings by Philip Blackburn, Danlee Mitchell, and Harry Partch." - Innova. Total running time: 126 mins. NTSC format, all regions.

"Limited edition LP release (180g vinyl) + free download card. Selecting illustrative works from the lifetime of a creative person is a daunting task; doing so with a singularly individual artist like Harry Partch is all the more difficult. In the more than four decades since Partchs death, interest in his both his life and his compositional output has continued to grow, and there remains a place for documents that can offer insights, suggest paths, and give new life to that creators endeavors. Even as duplicate instrumental ensembles are beginning to appear, and the original Partch instrumental resources have found a new home for performance and study, there is considerable value in returning to the many recordings he crafted over his lifetime of composition and performance. These are recordings that carry not only the stamp of the author, but his voice as well -- Partch himself appears in every single track of this record, either as singer, instrumentalist, or both. This remastered version of The Dreamer That Remains has never been available before and is making its first appearance in any format. The 12-page booklet includes an essay by the Harry Partch Foundations Jon Szanto and numerous rare photographs provided by the foundation and other sources.

Title: The World of Harry Partch
Format: LP
Label: Columbia
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
2015 repress; 180 gram exact repro reissue, originally released in 1969. "The World of Harry Partch collects three of his best short pieces. Daphne of the Dunes (1967) is a side-long update of Windsong written for dance. The melodic segments are given more emphasis than usual for a Partch piece, and harmonically this is one of his best with arpeggiated glides/cries of the Harmonic Canons evoking our sympathies. Meter changes almost measure by measure, with one section in 31/16 meter; another (polymetric) section consists of 4/4-7/4 over 4/8-7/8! Needless to say, while being very physical, Partchs music isnt something you can easily tap your foot to. Whats most important is that it works. Partch was not one to introduce musical complexity merely for its own sake, another factor that separated him from his contemporaries. Not only are the rhythms complex, but they are performed at a frantic pace unequaled by any music Ive hard (save perhaps the inhumanly fast player piano pieces of Conlon Nancarrow!). This is characteristic of most of Partchs works, though I think Daphne is one of the most successful and exhilarating. Barstow -- Eight Hitchhiker Inscriptions from a Highway Railing at Barstow, California was composed in 1941 as part of The Wayward. It offers such statements as Go to 538 East Lemon Avenue for an easy handout and Looking for millionaire wife... This charismatic piece is successful due to the contrasting of Partchs intoning voice with others in the ensemble and to increased instrumental emphasis. Last is Castor and Pollux in a more modern performance than From the Music of Harry Partch, with greater vigor and fidelity. The World of Harry Partch is an excellent introduction to his works that comes highly recommended." - Surface Noise.

Title: Cardiocleptomanie
Format: LP
Label: Minimal Wave
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"For our 31st release, Minimal Wave is proud to present Belgian pop trio Pas De Deux, best known for their participation in the 1983 Eurovision Song Contest. The group was formed in 1982 by Walter Verdin joined by Hilde van Roy and Dett Peyskens. They released two LPs and several singles along with some incredible video work produced by Verdin himself. Stylistically, their music is a bit post-punk and completely new wave with vocals reminiscent of the indie girl bands of the late 70s and early 80s. The slower tracks are quite dreamy, repetitive and hypnotic – resembling dream pop. The title track Cardiocleptomanie (originally released as a flexi-disc in 1983 and recently made available on V/A The Hidden Tapes) has been described as “a less is more sum composed of drum machine, wood blocks and bongos, a few tasty minimal synth lines, and an overlay of repetitive female vocals that touch a Krafwerkian harmonic nerve.” The Cardiocleptomanie LP gathers the best of Pas De Deuxs newly remastered studio recordings and presents them as an edition of 999 hand-numbered copies on 180 gram blue vinyl. The record is housed in a printed inner jacket and spot color printed outer jacket with band photo and song credits. 999 hand-numbered copies pressed on 180 gram blue vinyl." - Minimal Wave.

Title: My Pharaoh, My King
Format: LP
Label: Feeding Tube
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"This new duo LP, the first recorded by guitarist Tony Pasquarosa and drummer John Moloney (aka The Meatball Twins), is a masterpiece of lateral drift. Recorded as something like a tribute to the spirit of Farrell Little Rock Sanders (also known as The Son in the saxophonic Holy Trinity, along with Coltranes The Father, and Aylers The Holy Ghost) there is no music here specifically recalling Sanderss work. But much of it seems to spring from a place that is illuminated by Sanderss artistic freedom, and his utilization of Middle Eastern symbols and motifs both inside his music and as part of his artistic statements. Tonys acoustic guitar playing makes me think of the work of Indias great string master, Brij Bhushan Kabra. Raga-like twirls and filigree emerge like puffs of wet smoke, drifting away lazily in the sharp light of a winters afternoon. And Moloney, who is best known for throwing down thunder with Sunburned, Chelsea Light Moving, Dino Jr, Caught On Tape and other Giants of Thud, matches Tonys mood effortlessly. Sweet light rhythm patterns are not something one often associates with Moloneys music, but his playing here with both percussion and wind show a very different side of his chops. At some points the overall sound recalls one of Sandy Bulls Blends with Billy Higgins, but the music on My Pharaoh, My King is entirely its own trip. And it is a damn good one. Enjoy it with a meatball today!" - Byron Coley, 2017. Edition of 500.

"This modern-day minstrel is as fascinating and interesting as any swing or blues singer - phrases and thoughts so beautifully woven into the jazz background, and so expertly phrased and timed, that it is a revelation to the ear and mind." -- Los Angeles Examiner. "On a single October evening in 1959, fabled peoples poet Kenneth Patchen and Vancouvers Alan Neil Quartet made a little bit of history. Together, they cut one of the first jazz-and poetry recordings to disc -- fiery, spontaneous and free of pretensions, where hard bop playing wailed neck-and-neck with Patchens scathing, slurred, rabid vocalizations. Today, many see Jazz In Canada as among the very first truly beat documents on record -- preceding efforts by Kerouac, Ferlinghetti & Ginsberg.

Price: $25.00
2017 repress. Reissue of Paternosters self-titled album, originally released in 1972. Not every kraut album comes from a German band. Brainticket were in fact Swiss with a Belgian mastermind, for example. Paternoster on the other hand, who play an organ-driven solemn progressive rock with a heavy edge, come from Austria and really enlighten the heart of all fans of dark and often morbid rock music. It might be a good idea to overhear the pronunciation and the whole lyrics and take the vocals as another instrument, adding some color to the whole picture. The voices are indeed quite charismatic and memorable as are the compositions. The late 1960s psychedelic scene has surely made an impact on this band, considering the fuzzy lead guitar, creeping rhythms and wicked keyboards often creating a climate of sheer dementia with the mournful voice of the singer on top. The record sounds as if the band was jamming in a giant church hall and therefore has a really gloomy mood. There are quite a few freak-outs to be experienced along the way and in most cases they turn into some epic space trips that recall the greatest early Tangerine Dream and Pink Floyd processions just with a funeral atmosphere. This is a mournful album that sounds tragic before even considering the lyrics center on the average working day of an average man. Could progressive rock get more demented than Van Der Graaf Generator? This is vivid proof. Made by freaks, for freaks." - Ohrwaschl.

As composer, bandleader, and full-time member of the Sun Ra Arkestra, Pat Patrick was a visionary musician whose singular contribution to the jazz tradition has not yet been fully recognized. As well as holding down the baritone spot in the Arkestra for 35 years, Patrick played flute and alto, composed in both jazz and popular idioms, and was a widely respected musician, playing with Duke Ellington, Eric Dolphy, Thelonious Monk, and John Coltrane, with whom he appeared on Africa/Brass (1961). But he is best known for his crucial contributions to key Sun Ra recordings including Angels and Demons at Play (1967), Jazz in Silhouette (1959), and The Nubians of Plutonia (1967), among dozens of others. But as a bandleader, Patrick only released one LP -- the almost-mythical Sound Advice, recorded with his Baritone Saxophone Retinue, a unique gathering of baritone saxophone masters including Charles Davis and René McLean. First issued in 1977 on Sun Ras legendary Saturn Records imprint, Sound Advice is a deep-hued exploration of this special instrument, a lost masterpiece of Arkestrally-minded Ellingtonia on which higher adepts of the lower cosmic tones are heard in rare conference.

"Deluxe and exact official reissue of one of the rarest & most unique gems of the 60s private press psychedelic underground. Home recorded in a suburban New York living room over just a couple weeks in 1969 by three enthused teenagers, and then self-released by the band in an edition of only 100 copies complete with hand assembled covers and booklet insert. Dreams of rock stardom may have faded quickly, but from such humble beginnings these kids totally transcended their limited resources... an album overflowing with naive creativity, huge ideas, deep bedroom mysticism, and more then a hint of stoned teenage humor, not to mention a rather unusual assortment of instruments and some very unconventional but brilliant studio maneuvering. Two singers/songwriters both with wonderfully deep, poetic & introspective lyrics and unique voices, chiming 12 string & electric guitars, unusually cool use of piano, crude drum kit, autoharp, banjo, tambourine, subtle bursts of fuzz bass, off kilter unison vocals, washes of reverb modulation, weird tape edits, and a seriously one-of-a-kind vibration. Theres truly been nothing like it before or since... highest quality production throughout with better-then-ever master tape sounds and warm analog mastering, audiophile 180gm vinyl, exact reproduction of the original heavy weight cover with front & back mind-blowingly cool crude black & white art just like the original, exact reproduction of the thick insert booklet with gold printed covers on multiple colors of construction paper.

Title: A Fluxus Elegy
Format: One Sided LP
Label: Alga Marghen
Country: Italy
Price: $25.00
One-sided LP in an edition of 345 copies. "The new Ben Patterson piece, issued on Alga Marghens VocSon series, is based on the basic principles of the polyphonic music of the Bantu tribes of West and Central Africa. First principle: the practice of interlocking individual pitches or tones performed by one person into spaces between other pitches or tones performed by another person, thus alternating pitches or tones of one part with those of another part to create a whole. Second principle: use of cyclical and open-ended forms involving one or more ostinato melodic/rhythmic pattern as a foundation. Third principle: community participation...non-specialists are encouraged to join in long performances with much repetition. Fourth principle: rhythmic complexity with the juxtaposition of double and triple patterns, multiple layering of different patterns, and interaction between a core foundation and improvised parts. And, most important, the family ownership of a specific tone: in the musical culture of these tribes, each ancestral family owns and is responsible for one or more specific tones, which must be sounded at specific points, sequencing with the many other specific tones owned by other families, to create a seamless melody. Ben Patterson made a music based on this information by taking the initials of artists listed in Fluxus: The Most Radical and Experimental Art Movement of the Sixties and encoding them in basic International Morse Code. These dots and dashes were then performed on a Yamaha DJX keyboard (voice pattern setting), connected to a Digitech JamMan Looper (over-dub setting), connected to an Eurorack MX 602A mixer. Front cover reproducing the original score." - Alga Marghen.

The first CD starts with the first ever recording of Ants (1960), one of Ben Patterson first graphic scores, pre-dating the Fluxus group. Also included in this CD are two essential 1961 documents: Duo For Voice And A String Instrument and Variations for Double-bass, both recorded in concert at the Galerie Parnass in 1962; this event has special historic significance in that it included the first public presentation by George Maciunas of his Fluxus manifesto and plans for the Wiesbaden Fluxus Festival. Two more tracks titled Paper Piece(1960), the work that cut the umbilical cord to all of the authors previous classical and contemporary musical training and experience, and Pond (1962), a piece that reminds of Richard Maxfields electronic music with voice collage, see the collaboration of Philip Corner, Walter Marchetti and Davide Mosconi. The second CD includes more recent works as A Simple Opera (1995), a repetitive hommage to Emmett Willons on his 70th birthday, also recorded in collaboration with Philip Corner, Walter Marchetti and Davide Mosconi; 370 Flies (2003) for electronic loops and voice; as well as A Fluxus Elegy (2006), previously issued on Alga Marghens VocSon LP series and based on the basic principles of the polyphonic music of the Bantu tribes of West and Central Africa, applied to the initials of artists listed in Fluxus: The Most Radical and Experimental Art Movement of the Sixties, through encoding them in basic International Morse Code. Starting as a virtuoso double-bass performer of classical music, Ben Patterson was one of the very first founders of the Fluxus Group in Wiesban. This digipak CD will introduce you to some American neo-avantgarde music classics, a crossover between John Cage exploding influences and the experimental art atmosphere of the early 1960s in Europe. Edition limited to 200 copies in silkscreened digipack sleeve, including a 4 page folded insert with liner notes, original score as well as performance photos and program from the 1962 concert at Galerie Parnass, Wuppertal." -Alga Marghen

As the author wrote in the liner notes: Recently, as I was preparing a concert of classic Fluxus works, I decided to re-examine the original scores, rather than rely on my memory of preformances of the traditional interpretations of these works. Thus, I discovered that George Brechts original instructions for Drip Music allowed for both a single source or multiple sources of dripping water. Remembering Georges first career as a chemist, employing laboratory equipment to produce multiple, dripping sources seemed appropriate. A device was constructed including 3 gerbil water bottles suspended from metal rods and a piece of molded plastic packaging, amplified with contact microphone. Only micro adjustments were made to provide differing drip frequencies. No electro-acoustic manipulations or editorial tricks. Also included is Ben Patterson 370 Flies (2003), dedicated to the double-bassist Sylvester Paumgartner (178?-18??) for inspiring this work. A list of artificial flies names read over the sound loops derived from the fourth movement of Franz Schuberts String Quintet, D 667 op. post. 114, the Trout Quintet. An artificial fly is included on front cover, while a reproduction of the Drip Music score is stamped on the back cover. CDR edition limited to 200 signed copies." - Alga Marghen.

“2002 release. Alga Marghen proudly presents the first record ever produced by Ben Patterson: "This is not only my first CD, but also the first recordings of these works available to the general public." Starting as a virtuoso double-bass performer of classical music, Ben Patterson was one of the very first founders of the Fluxus Group in Wiesban. This digipak CD will introduce you to some American neo-avant garde music classics, a crossover between John Cages exploding influences and the experimental art atmosphere of the early 1960s in Europe. The compact disc program includes two essential 1961 documents: "Duo for Voice and a String Instrument" and "Variations for Double-Bass," both recorded in concert at the Galerie Parnass in 1962; this event has special historic significance in that it included the first public presentation by George Maciunas of his Fluxus manifesto and plans for the Wiesbaden Fluxus Festival. "Duo" was Pattersons most ambitious and lost attempt to combine graphic notation and chance operations for the realization of a performance score, while "Variations" represents the moment when, unexpectedly, out of some unknown place, something new entered the process -- humor! The other three tracks were recorded in Milano especially for this release; a collaboration with Philip Corner, Walter Marchetti, Davide Mosconi, and a few more friends. These newly-recorded pieces include "A Simple Opera" (1995), a repetitive homage to Emmett Williams on his 70th birthday; "Paper Piece" (1960), the work that cut the umbilical cord to all of the authors previous classical and contemporary musical training and experience, and "Pond" (1961), a piece that reminds of Richard Maxfields electronic music with voice collage. The edition includes a fold-out 16-page insert with original scores and photos.” - Alga Marghen.

2 limited edition CDs on Fluxus artist Ben Pattersons own label, distributed by Alga Marghen. "The Liverpool Song Lines (2257"): for many year Ben Patterson has been fascinated by the so-called song lines of the Australian Aborigine. Musically, these songs for solo voice, sometimes accompanied by beating-sticks, are not especially stirring for Western ears. Rather, for the artist, it is the concept underlying the text which is remarkable. These songs describe flora, fauna and places which are sacred in the mythology of the Aborigine. But these birds and trees and rivers and rocks are not imaginary or mythological inventions. Thus, if the set of songs is sung in the correct sequence, they link a series of landmarks in such a way as to provide an aural map, guiding the traveller from here to there in a trackless Australian out-back. The River Mersey (2314"): from Ellesmere Port to Bootle; or, from Bootle to Ellesmere Port; or, in both directions in the same time. The graphic score of this piece is a site-inspired, adaptation of Ben Pattersons early work, Duo-1961, for Voice and String Player (issued by Alga Marghen in Ben Patteron Early Works CD) for the performance with the Frakture Big Band at the Bluecoat Arts Centre, Liverpool, Tuesday 29 October 2002.

Title: Satellite
Format: LP
Label: Rel
Country: USA
Price: $21.00
"Paul and Maurey is the duo of Ashley Paul and Sakiko Mori. Satellite is an extended album with new and unreleased material, based off the micro edition cassette released on Wagtail in late 2010 that sold out in an instant. This version reveals their expansive, open ended and dynamic approach, combining Ashleys intuitive writing and vocals, with their propulsive and multi-layered rhythms, clatter and dynamics from the ensemble sound. Both perform on a wide range of instruments: Sakiko on keyboards, percussion, harmonium and Ashley on guitar, green box, reeds and even tuba. These two play multiple instruments at once and often switch in the middle of songs. Together they create a unique world of small scale/micro-sounds and non-musical gestures, somehow fitting this all within a song structure that really needs to be heard to be understood. In doing this, Paul and Maurey make something oddly beautiful out of the rawest material. Satellite is an LP edition, printed on clear vinyl, pink labels, with black matter innersleeves in custom, hand painted covers and silk screened jacket, in a limited edition of 340 copies." -Rel.

Title: Line The Clouds

Country: USA
Price: $21.00
"Multi-faceted composer and performer Ashley Paul releases her new LP. A hyper-intuitive record, where off-kilter instrumentation meets beautifully crafted melodies to convey the very essence of musicality, Line the Clouds contains 44.18 minutes of sonic paradoxes and dichotomies. Stirring up a zephyr of twelve blissfully cacophonous sounds -- singular moments of an indivisible whole -- the focus is on guitar, voice and saxophone, but Ashley also employs everything from flute, clarinet, guitar, bells, percussion and prepared strings in her melodic endeavours which simultaneously plugs in the ghost of American song. From Wide Expanse -- where high-pitched reeds and whistles collide with richer tones and Ashleys fragile voice -- through the simple, sparkling beauty of the LPs title track -- with the guitar at the helm -- and the multi-vocal flutterings of Watch Them Pass, theres also the freeing experimentalism and atonal clatter of Feb.21 -- a song which ably immortalises a feeling of stomach churning anguish -- and the albums gentle, abstract finale Youre a Feeling. This Brooklyn based artist is at the vanguard of the new wave of music currently rippling through the city where opposing strains of style and sound work in unison. Line the Clouds will be available in a limited edition LP available on colored vinyl in a custom sealed package with screen printed wraparound of Ashleys animal drawings, in addition to a digital version." -Rel.

Title: Pays Noir
Format: LP
Label: Souffle Continu
Country: France
Price: $21.00
"Previously unreleased, the three tracks on Pays Noir come from recording sessions held at the same time as those for the cult album No Mans Land(FFL 026LP), produced by Jef Gilson in 1976, and published on vinyl by Souffle Continu Records in 2017. Singled out at the time of its release by Actuel, Rock & Folk, and Melody Maker, the tabula rasa of No Mans Landis the result of free-flowing experiments born of chance, if the two musicians are to be believed. Indeed, their approach to free improvisation was uninfluenced by those in the know of what was going on in such circles, which makes it even more incredible. To emphasize the point, the saxophonist Evan Parker (already a leader in the field) remarked on the album at the time, surprised by the innovation of the two Frenchmen. Brimming with the same fervor as No Mans Land, mainly on guitar and drums (but once again, not only...), Jean-François Pauvros and Gaby Bizien invent an amazing unbridled chaos of instinctive combinations, which are the fruit of their immense complicity, born of days on end playing together, trying to transform the rebelliousness of rock into free-form sparks unlike anything heard before, and which are often poetic -- ah, that final song! Carried along by the frenzied clatter of Gaby Bizien, Jean-François Pauvros emerges without doubt as one the great French improvising guitarists, alongside Gérard Marais (Dharma Quintet, Stu Martin Trio), Joseph Dejean (Cohelmec Ensemble, The Full Moon Ensemble), Raymond Boni (who, like Pauvros and Bizien, is present on the Nurse With Wound list), Dominique Répécaud, Noël Akchoté, and Jean-Marc Montera. Furthermore, the duo has a crazy intensity heard only on recordings by duos such as Bill Orcutt and Chris Corsano, Arto Lindsay and Paal Nilssen-Love, Thurston Moore and John Moloney, and Mesa Of The Lost Women. A kind of French no wave ahead of its time. Licensed from Jean-François Pauvros. Obi strip; Reverse printing; Edition of 500." - Souffle Continu.

Title: No Mans Land
Format: LP

Country: France
Price: $23.00
"Souffle Continu Records present a reissue of Jean-Francois Pauvrosand Gaby Biziens No Mans Land, originally released on Un-Deux-Trois in 1976. Whether it is with the label Palm, or for Un-Deux-Trois, Jef Gilson has produced some of the best albums of French free jazz and improvisation. But thats not all: he also offered perfect recording conditions enabling some of the fresh young talent to emerge, including Daunik Lazro, André Jaume, and Jean-François Pauvros, all three of whom released their first recordings on one of those labels. Recorded by Jean-François Pauvros (guitar, but not only...) alongside Gaby Bizien (drums, percussion, aquatic trombone, marimba, bird calls), and, of course, produced by the audacious Jef Gilson, the appropriately named No Mans Land had virtually no equivalent in France (nor worldwide) when it came out in 1976. Radical, free, primitive, timeless: in the image of the musicians, it is not for nothing that it appears in the famous Nurse With Wound list of major influences concocted in 1979. No label can be placed on this vertiginous sensory adventure: an explosive flow of shrapnel and tearing intensity, full of mystery and life. To be clear, No Mans Land is the key recording of French improvisation. So much so that it is difficult to imagine it coming out of nowhere, the two musicians must surely have been listening to the latest forays of the British Music Improvisation Company and decided to reply in their own way. But not at all! If you believe what the protagonists have to say, these experiments were carried out in secret isolation, and with a total lack of awareness of everything that was going on in the avant-garde of improvised music. Indeed, it was only after the album was published that Jean-François Pauvros and Gaby Bizien learned that there was a movement going on with similar ideas. That tells us something about the level of invention of this album, which comfortably bears comparison to other similar duos such as Derek Bailey and Tony Oxley, Fred Frith and Chris Cutler, John Russell and Roger Turner, or Gary Smith and John Stevens... The Frenchmen were well served by their unbridled variety and poly-instrumentalism. Licensed from Jean-François Pauvros. Obi strip; Reverse printing; Edition of 500." - Souffle Continu.

Price: $27.00
“The complete Subterranean Pop fanzines and Seattle Rocket newspaper columns by Bruce Pavitt; an unbelievably deep chronicle of regional American indie pop, punk, hardcore, art/noise, metal, spoken word, hip hop, and rock’n roll during the 1980s by the founder of Sub Pop Records.

Over 1,000 recording artists hunted down and hyped in their original indie habitats, including Black Flag, Sonic Youth, Hüsker Dü, the Wipers, Dinosaur Jr., Run-D.M.C., Slayer, Beastie Boys, Mudhoney…plus an entire nation of inspired amateurs.

In 1979, Bruce Pavitt moved from Chicago to Olympia, Washington, and began programming a show called Subterranean Pop on local community radio station KAOS-FM. In 1980, he launched Subterranean Pop magazine, dedicated to the unsung punk, new wave, and experimental regional bands of the Pacific Northwest and Midwest. Calvin Johnson of K Records joined the zine’s staff later that year, beginning with the second issue.

The Sub Pop zine puzzled punk and new wave fans from major cities; readers were surprised that there were enough bands in the forgotten cities and states to devote a column, let alone an entire fanzine. Even more puzzling was the exclusion of artists like the Clash, Gang of Four, Blondie, or PIL, solely because of their major label associations. Driven by the power of independent thinking, early issues featured impassioned rallying cries for local action that make more sense than ever today, alongside early published artwork by Linda Barry, Charles Burns, and Jad Fair.

In 1983, Pavitt moved to Seattle and commenced his widely-read Sub Pop USA column in the Rocket newspaper, each month exposing new underground and independent artists. From Beat Happening and Pell Mell to early records by the Beastie Boys, Metallica, and Run-D.M.C., Sub Pop was a 1980s independent music bible, written with a diverse appreciation for happening scenes across the USA. In 1986, Pavitt put his ideas into practice, launching Sub Pop Records with the historic Sub Pop 100 compilation and Soundgarden’s first release, Screaming Life. While the Sub Pop Records legacy is today legendary, the groundwork and creative wellspring that put Seattle on the musical map is assembled here for the first time.” - Bazillion Points.

"Kapitel is the debut recording from the Russian-Swedish musician Mischa Pavlovski, now based in Copenhagen. Pavlovski has previously played in punk and metal bands that have also released on Posh Isolation, and his solo debut offers a very different take on sound, though in equally dark territory. Kapitel is a monolithic piece of minimal, ambient techno. It is quite beyond belief that this is someones debut: with an incredible ear for composition and timing, Pavlovski presents four tracks, each leading into the next with heavy, pulsing bass; distant, desolated melodies; paranoid, ambient soundscapes; and an underlying steady kick binding it all together. With a running time of almost 40 minutes it still manages to keep its listener captivated from the first kick to the last synth. Drugs, anxiety, club lights turning off one by one, waking dreams." - Posh Isolation.

The jacket was letterpress printed, diecut and hand-assembled at Studio on Fire in Minneapolis. "Violist Jessica Pavones Knuckle Under is the result of an exercise in mono focus, the result of a medically enforced hiatus from playing her primary instrument. She returned to the viola after a 21 month lay-off determined to play only the sounds she most wanted to hear. That turned out to be long tones, often played with such force that one imagines a puff of rosin rising from her strings as she bowed them. , But Not Here" gets through just three rustic sounding notes before a delay unit sprays one out like a prism. She repeats the phrase, and another note splits and gets trapped in an effects pedals hall of mirrors. The simplicity and sheer noisiness of the music feels remote from the scrupulous craftsmanship exhibited on her last solo record, Hope Dawson Is Missing, even though they share a tune. "Plutonium", the piece in common, reveals the flexibility that Pavone finds in folk material. On the Tzadik disc, it unfolds into a stately art song; here, mournful low tones turn as bushy as a wolfs winter coat under the influence of amplification. Pavone is, as ever, scrupulously focused, wringing everything she can from one piece of material before moving on." - Bill Meyer, The Wire magazine.

Untertanz is a collection of live performances that capture his free jazz take on madman rock n roll. Think Ciccone Youth era Sonic Youth, Bruce Haack, The Residents, Jandek, and Derek Bailey.

As one listens, a multitude emerges: Egyptian princesses, ice cream men, cigarette girls and hijras dance in a multiracial, beach-salted crowd acculturated to the polyglot musics of the La Brea Tar Pits and Angeles Forest. Everyone is right on time. These ten songs are hard cash in the economy of souls. You can’t escape your parents’ record collection by listening to vaporwave, because vaporwave has taken its place in the eternal order.

Organ is an anthem of Southern California patriotism with all the thrills of dragging in Lodi and peyote-munched soul-wandering in Silver Lake. This album is power-pop perfection, the Paisley Underground finally done right. Theres a big difference between playing every instrument and being a one-man band. Suffice it to say that ADAM PAYNE (RESIDUAL ECHOES) is a one-man band akin to Emitt Rhodes broadcast over solid-state transmitters. Maybe Grant Hart has the better voice while Bob Mould churned out better lyrics. What if the Kirkwoods melded into a creature that couldnt punch itself? Adam Payne, as one band, has made an LP that matches the chops and hooks of Captain Trundlows Sky Company or the bits of The Only Ones that are consistently lifted. The rumors that Payne was asked to produce the next Mudcrutch album have yet to be confirmed.

Maggi Payne on Crystal: "I create immersive environments, inviting listeners/participants to enter the sound and be carried with it, experiencing it from the inside out in intimate detail. The sounds are almost tactile, visible, tangible. A narrative of the imagination exists, allowing each person experiencing the work to thread their own paths through their minds imagination and their bodys physical engagement. Each sound slowly unfolds, revealing intricacies and complexity. Each grows and evolves like crystals forming under the microscope. . . . I visualize the sound as originating from, for instance, a point source below where one is standing, then it swirls outward and upward in an ever-expanding spiral until it disappears high over the listeners head, morphing as it travels. Spatialization is not imposed when mixing, but is instead created in the original recording by increasing the amplitude of the sound on one track then decreasing its amplitude as the identical frequency is matched on the next track while it is increasing its amplitude, dovetailing the tracks across the space. Using extensive multi-tracking, the spatialization is retained, architecting and sculpting the aural space so that multiple perspectives and trajectories coexist."

Price: $32.00
"In the 1930s, the Massengill family of rural Arkansas built three portable photography studios on old truck frames, attached each to the back of any car that would run, and started a mobile photo booth business that would last for a decade. Without formal training or help, the Massengill family invented and improvised ways to mimic the popular photo booths they had seen in drug stores and brought their business to the dirt roads and open fields they knew well. Making Pictures: Three for a Dime, featuring Massengill family prints and photo albums collected by the artist Maxine Payne, illuminates a sliver of the Depression-era south previously unseen by the public. Unlike the hardscrabble lives and worn-down faces captured by Works Progress Administration photographers of the time, the Massengill photographs often show folks working to look their best. A man mugs in his Sunday suit and hat; a girl preens with lusty eyes; a boy clutches his prize rooster. Hand-painted backdrops, colorized prints, and even the occasional prop add a playful edge to these scenes. Among them, we also get a haunting glimpse or two of the difficult lives lived outside of these moments. Not unlike discovered troves of photographs by Vivian Maier or Mike Disfarmer, the Massengill photographs invite us to reconsider a time and place from a new perspective. Alongside the prints and albums, this volume includes introductions by Payne and curator Phillip March Jones, short remembrances from Lance and Evelyn Massengill, and a transcribed diary that recounts the difficulties and successes of the family business in short, powerful bursts. ("June 18, 1939 Mr Pennington drowned today. We went home about 4:00 oclock and made cream at mamas.") Collected here in a handsome and ample design, Making Pictures: Three for a Dime is the definitive volume of the Massengill photographs.

Readers get an up close and personal look at a variety of well-known vinyl champions as well as a glimpse into the collections of world-renowned and lesser-known DJs, producers, record dealers, and everyday enthusiasts. The book is divided into two main parts: the first features 250 full-page photos framed by captions and select quotes, while the second consists of 12 full-length interviews that delve deeper into collectors personal histories and vinyl troves. It all started out several years ago as nothing more than a way for photographer Paz to engage in a personal project in his free time. Adrift in Brooklyn after emigrating from Israel, Paz -- a record collector on the side -- thought it might be fun to start taking photos of people whose record collections were both larger and weirder than his own. These portraits turned into the Dust & Grooves website, which quickly developed a global following that grew every time a new portrait was added to the mix. People all over the world seemed to dig not only the beauty of Eilons photos, but the interviews with the collectors -- a motley, if generally charming, crew of non-violent obsessives who turned out to be at least as intriguing as the records they collected. Unearthing the very soul of the vinyl community, his book will appeal to a broad spectrum of readers, from die-hard record enthusiasts to fans of pop culture, sharp photography, and music history." - Dust & Grooves.

"Arisen from the ashes of famous Belgian bands The Wallace Collection, Waterloo and Arkham, Pazop signed a contract and recorded this first album in 1972. Unfortunately, the label refused to release the record due to its title. Influenced by Zappa and the Canterbury scene, and recorded at the famous Hérouvilles castle, this mythical album now appears on vinyl for the first time ever!" The group achieved an interesting synthesis of pop and classical, using real string instruments (violin, cello), yet amplified, instead of using electronic substitutes (such as mellotron) to reproduce orchestral sounds." - Replica.

Widely influenced by King Crimson and Weather Report, the amazing results of these recordings are now available on vinyl for the first time!" "Continually inventive Canterbury/jazz styled album that is very close to groups like Moving Gelatine Plates or Supersister, sharing both groups penchants for creating strange and humourous music with more than a hint of invention. The music is very crazy, shuttling between jazz and rock with furious instrumentals with lots of flute and violin." - Replica.

A kind of cosmic ethnography combining pre-Columbian percussion and wind instruments together with guitar, tape delay units, and analog synthesizers: a mystical weft of giddily deep grooves and experimentation. A limited edition beautifully presented in numbered, silk-screened sleeves, with notes." - Sacred Summits. A Classic. Highly Recommended!

Title: Rabid
Format: LP
Label: Sonoris
Country: France
Price: $18.00
Rabid consists of six tracks mixed by Phillip B. Klingler, aka PBK, between 2004 and 2006 using Wolf Eyes source material, this is the Wolf Eyes lineup of 2000 to 2005: Nate Young, John Olson and Aaron Dilloway. Klingler: "I was given the audio sources (via cdr) by John Olson at the Ear Candy Festival in Dearborn, Michigan, in 2004. None of the compositions on the album were completed using a computer, they were all recorded live in my home studio or at gigs and radio shows directly to digital." Three of the pieces on the LP were previously released in Russia on the CD, Under My Breath in 2009. Also in 2009, the American Tapes label run by John Olson released a CDR of the PBK & Wolf Eyes collaborative tracks as part of the ongoing "Live Frying" series. Later, Rabid was available for a brief time as a net release. One review from the time stated: "Not a single track passes by without conveying grisly and creepy sensations of imminent death or disaster." Mastered for vinyl by Giuseppe Ielasi and with the beautiful cover illustration created by Pole Ka. American composer, Phillip B. Klingler, better known as PBK, has been active in the experimental music underground since 1986. His compositions are created using extreme turntable manipulation, sampling, analog and digital synthesis. Improvising spontaneously and with little preconception, PBK creates pulsing, dense soundscapes of unknown sonic origin. Wolf Eyes is a post-industrial/noise band from Detroit, Michigan. They are widely considered the "kings of US noise." "Their development since the earliest rumblings in 1997 has yielded some of the most staggering and genre-defining sounds of noise and sound arts dense, largely obscured history." - Allmusic.

The general off-kilter madness is very fitting of this Shdwply imprint, I love the production on these records-proper old-school reel to reel tape recordings capturing progressive thinking musicians fannying around in basements attempting to hit on something new. I must admit theres a real oddsnsods feel to this album but for fans of pioneering early 90s labels such as Siltbreeze and the likes of early Sebadoh or even some of the recent noise/dissonance output from acts such as Ashtray Navigations-this album has plenty of juicy sonic fallout & monged psychedelia to offer the casual yankophile."-Norman Records

This collection of recordings was made between 2006 and 2009 and represents an era of collective output and collaboration with many other local musicians. This particular collection of music was recorded on a Teac 4-track reel-to-reel tape machine, a Radio Shack handheld cassette recorder and various computers. Although Frye spearheads this project, there are all sorts of other players involved and the live show can range from a solo performance to members in double digits.

"First vinyl by a band that has long been in the vanguard of the neu Boston commune-hunch. Although known only via CDRs, live shows and compilation tracks, Peace, Loving has been at work crafting their mysterious völk moves for the better part of a decade. The core of the band on this record is a quartet -- ARKM Foam, who also appears on the Bang! Bros. 12/12/12 EP (FTR 170, 2014), Kate Lee, Morgan Shaker and Pancho the Kidd. Several of these souls are central to the whole Whitehaus scene in Jamaica Plain, and an array of fellow travelers pile on at various moments of this album. You can easily discern the weekly hoot roots of their sound on the studio side of the LP, which makes me think of what youthful vipers might come up with after listening to stuff like Dan Hicks, Captain Matchbox and Homegas. These tunes have a mix of naif lyricism, slightly archaic pop moves and a soupçon of stoned improvisational logic that pops up in unexpected places. Its a blend that grows on you more and more with each spin. The live side of the album is a different beast entirely. It starts with jingly minimalism that recalls 16 Bitch Pile-Up at their least noisy, but it merges into a quiet flow of banjo and the kind of dimly sparkling percussion you expect to find sprawled around the rug of a rural cabin. The music develops a deep and abstract smokiness, of the kind associated with outfits like MVEE or Mendocino, eventually erupting into a symphony of sound as thick as the climatic sequences of Hitchcocks 1963 film, The Birds. All in all Peace, Loving is a perplexing and very warm spin. One likes to imagine it might have been something Ed Denson snuck onto Takoma back in the day, when Fahey wasnt paying attention. Would have been a classic of unknown-tongue form then, and remains one now. Dig it." - Byron Coley, 2017. Edition of 400.

"In 1995 Rockadelic released this album on vinyl. Finally here it is with all extra tracks, photos etc. on LP again. Extra heavy psych, great guitars and vocals. This unreleased late 1960s heavy guitar-psych classic is probably (along with Cold Sun), also a previous Rockadelic LP, with widest appeal among mainstream psych fans. Despite being just 3 guys with no bass player, a dense wall of hard psychedelia is erected with moments as intense as Fraction. The opening Sea of nightmares is one of the best heavy psych tracks ever laid down, while cool remnants of teen garage and lounge/schmaltz add to the LPs underground appeal. Powerful, non-macho vocals and Jon Uzonyis triple-tracked feedback guitars makes this blow away 20th Century Zoo, Savage Resurrection, Dragonfly, etc., stunning and solid.

Title: Im The One
Format: LP
Label: Future Days
Country: USA
Price: $26.00
"Im The One, you dont have to look any further. Im The One. Im here, right here for you, oozes jazz, rock, and electronic music pioneer Annette Peacock on the leadoff title track of her solo debut LP. The albums wide range of vocal emotions and diverse sonic palette (featuring Robert Moogs early modular synthesizers, which the singer actually transmitted her voice through to wild effect) places it firmly at the forefront of the pop avant-garde. Originally released by RCA Victor in 1972 to widespread critical acclaim, Im The One found itself amongst good company. Both Lou Reed and David Bowie had recently signed to the label--Bowie in particular was enamored with Annette--and artists ranging from ex-husband and jazz great Paul Bley, along with notable Brazilian percussionists Airto Moreira and Dom Um Romao, guested on the album itself. Writing and arranging Im The Ones nine passionate tracks--bar a unique cover of Elvis Presleys Love Me Tender-- the disc grooves easily from free jazz freak-outs and rough and rugged blues-funk to gently pulsing synthesized bliss. The second release on our Future Days Recordings imprint, Im The One is returning to better record shops on CD and LP formats, re-mastered from the original tapes with an insert containing beautiful unseen photos from the vaults of Sony Music and extensive liner notes from NYC-based writer and musician, Mikey IQ Jones. An extension of Annettes late 1960s work with her Bley-Peacock Synthesizer Show combo, Im The One is filled with strength and power, as well as a tender, sensual, and seductive side, born of a life surrounded with music and culture. Composing by age four, Peacocks mother was a professional violinist. By the early 1960s, Annette had also collaborated with first husband, jazz bassist Gary Peacock and toured with legendary saxophone player Albert Ayler. Studying under Zen macrobiotics educator Michio Kushi and a confidant to Timothy Leary at the Millbrook psychedelic center, Peacock later worked, post-Im The One, with rock stalwarts like guitarists Mick Ronson and Chris Spedding, Yes/King Crimson drummer Bill Bruford, as well as surrealist artist Salvador Dali. Light years ahead of her early 1970s contemporaries in terms of individuality and uncompromising vision, the album makes todays major label computer generated fabrications an embarrassment to listeners worldwide. Still to this day, Annette remains a passionate advocate, an enigma caught between the peace and love vibrations of a hippy counterculture and the more worldly intelligence of the modern age. Her records continue to influence and inspire, and with Im The One finally back on the shelves, countless new jacks on the scene can scope its liner notes and bear witness to its brilliance. Hand-numbered edition of 1000 copies. Gatefold LP version with 18"x24" poster." -Future Days.

“Bamboo present a reissue of the debut album by Annette Peacock & Paul Bley, Dual Unity, originally released in 1972. Annette Peacocks legacy may only just be courting recognition proper with the recent retrospective release of her solo debut Im The One (1972). Hailed as a pioneer and artistic genius by many, her debut album and predecessor to Im The One captures Peacock in her element alongside husband; Canadian jazz genius Paul Bley. Dual Unity is a landscape of aural vision captured on tape in 1970 during their first European tour. For 33 minutes and 21 seconds, the listener is absorbed by other spirits. Using Robert Moogs earliest synthesizers, Bley and Peacock apply the strategic use of silence to indicate its reflective nature with captivating results. Originally released in 1971, it is a statement of immensity through synthetic minimalism and a milestone in the avant-garde, free jazz movement. Personnel (in addition to Peacock and Bley performing on all tracks): Han Bennink - drums on "M.J." and "Gargantuan Encounter"; Mario Pavone - bass and Laurence Cook - drums on "Richter Scale" and "Dual Unity". Professionally re-mastered original sound recording with expansive liners, interviews and rare archival photos.” - Bamboo.

This is a co-release with Aussie label Bed Room Suck our friends out of Brisbane and is the first in a string of co-released splits representing some of Australias best bands highlighting the distinct artistic atmopshere and friendships that have made Australian underground music so vibrant right now. Melbourne duo Peak Twins (who share members with KITCHENS FLOOR, BITCH PREFECT, TERRIBLE TRUTHS, etc.) ride the jams and compose their music with utmost attention to well played pop hooks, somber sublte psychedlics, and a general downer dissposition that never gets to heavy but lets the light shine through onto the 60s psych pop flavored jangle and shamble of their great songs. Scott and Charlenes Wedding (who share members with PANEL OF JUDEGES) have a distinct punky jangly guitar pop aesthetic going that is distinctly Aussie and south hemipshere in its sound. They are good mates with rising indie rockers Twerps and have some shared influences but where Twerps keep it a bit more chill and mopey Scott and Charlenes let the angst and grit stick out more.

The songwriting is insane; All The Sun That Shines, Amazing & Wonderful, Tiger Eyes (Laid Back), etc, all seep into yr mindstream and float there like melodic gold dust. Indra Dunis silky soul-jazz keys and tranced vocals have never sounded so exquisite, and Aaron Coyes busts out the best bass/drum loops and sneaky dub guitar of his musical lifetime. Recorded by Luke Tweedy at Flat Black Studios in Iowa City (where both the NNF Wet Hair LPs were tracked) and mastered in Berlin, 936 retains the cool crate-digger grit of their earlier highlights, but within a much more vivid spectrum of sound.

Title: Kithless
Format: LP
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"Pedestrian Deposit (Jonathan Borges and Shannon A. Kennedy) possesses a certain, restrained relationship to texture. Sources both electric and acoustic operate on a logic of hybridity_ becoming compositional elements organized through their activation of a shared acoustic space. This functions in multiple directions: in some instances, the cello is captured and converted to a subtle electronic variation, expanding the range of the tone through this capture, at other times it acts as a sort of mimicry, tools of one sort operating on the language of the other_ the cello played like a burst of noise, or electronic presence informed by the technique natural to the bow. The compositional practice developed by the duo is strict, bearing the marks of tension informed by the rigor of live performance. The pieces on Kithless are documents of this practice; Drift Gently Down the Frigid Tides of Sleep was recorded live at Activating the Medium XIII:ICE in San Francisco on April 17, 2010. The performance extends the use of hybrid and musique concrete forms by engaging with the physical limits of the body through voluntary hypothermia, transforming the performers state and relationship to compositional tools. Under a Veil of Living Light, a staple from the 2009 East Coast tour, is a drifting of the hybrid forms expressed above, weaving in and out of each other; traces of texture, combined and re-combined. Kithless is Pedestrian Deposits first LP album since its incarnation as a duo in 2008. It follows their compact disc releases Austere and East Fork / North Fork, both on Monorail Trespassing (2009 and 2010, respectively)_ their body of work thus far shows a dedication to a minor, often overlooked, field in contemporary practice directly concerned with the technologies of composition and the ways in which sounds touch each other. Recorded June 2009 - June 2010, and mastered by William Hutson, and transferred for vinyl at Dubplates and Mastering by Frederic Stader on March 16, 2011. In an edition of 500 copies." - Arbor.

"GINO PUSZTAL didnt have a band. He had a guitar strung upside down and a notebook full of half-finished angry and odd songs. He talked to GARY JACOBELLY about jamming. Gary brought in LINA SEDILLO on bass and Gino brought MIKE HURLEY in on drums. Together they formed Peer Group, a band composed of most of the remaining people in the small ovarian scene that hung out with the local South Bay bands from New Alliance that wanted to play but didnt yet have a band. As is the case with most bands choosing a name, they became Peer Group since it was the only name they didnt all immediately hate. They played together for one raw and dislocated year until there was a falling out with Gino. Ultimately it ended when the band fixed it so he would fire them all at once. The trio recruited JIMMY THE OTTER SLAYDEN on vocals. Jimmy was a pretty funny galoot. He was a surfer and a heck of a nice guy, and was a lot of fun at rehearsals. The band rehearsed and did a few gigs with Jimmy. Eventually, one day he didnt come to rehearsal. He got ahold of the band a couple of weeks later, but by then they were already trying it as a trio. During this time, late in winter 1981, the engineer at their sometime rehearsal space taped them for a demo. Most songs were recorded in one take in a couple of hours, thus explaining their charming, raw quality. Jimmy wrote Iconoclast Youth. Eating Out was Mike Hurleys contribution. Lina and Gary wrote the goofy little half bad French howl of despair Lon Chaney, and Gary wrote the twin head-scratchers Bromide and Box of Words." First pressing of 330 copies. Includes a download with four bonus tracks (including "I Saw That Movie," which appeared on the Chunks compilation)." -Water Under The Bridge.

Price: $15.00
"It was just a couple of guys from Connecticut, not a "proper" band in any sense of the word. One had great chops and songs while the other had lyrics and an endless supply of brilliant ideas. Even if they were never a functioning live band, the two recorded some of the most amazing homemade Punk Rock between 1979-1980. A four song 7"EP was released on Mothers Day in 1980 (in celebration of "Thats Why They Call Em Moms") on their own Resistance Records. They intended the EP to look like something from the generic food/household products line. It was issued with appropriately designed labels and no picture sleeve. The band imploded soon after its release. With no live gigs in peoples minds, no real distribution and no cover screaming PUNK ROCK; the record and band quickly faded into obscurity. The obvious hit of the EP ("Sound Of The 80s") was included on a Killed By Death bootleg compilation in the mid 90s, but it wasnt until a medal-worthy search in 1999 by world champion record hound Ryan Richardson that the band and their story was discovered. That contact also resulted in Ryan issuing the unreleased Eve of Destruction EP as a limited 7" titled 1979/1980. This deluxe reissue includes remastered versions of both the Sounds of the 80s EP and the 1979/1980 EP. The vinyl is packaged in a folder style pocket cover and comes with a 5"x7" postcard and a 7"x14" insert including liner notes and other Peer Pressure evidence." -Rerun.

Format: LP
Label: Upset the Rhythm
Country: UK
Price: $27.00
"Comes in a reverse board sleeve; Includes lyric insert and download card. Pega Monstro is the Lisbon, Portugal sister duo of Julia Reis (drums) and Maria Reis (guitar). They share the same birthday but are not twins, and they have always lived in Lisbon, Portugal. Maria and Julia resolved became a duo in 2010, focusing on their intuitive sense of harmony and expressionistic dream-punk sound. They return to Upset The Rhythm, following Alfarroba (UTR 072CD/LP, 2015), with their third album entitled Casa De Cima, which translates as "Upper House". On the first song "Ó Miguel", Pega Monstro shown that they have grown in confidence and vision, they sound compelling and assured and let the song unfold in its own leisure. The stunning "Partir A Loiça" follows with its stammering rhythms and soaring, swirling vocals. The songs title, literally "break all the dishes", is a saying in Portugal meaning to shake things up and exceed expectations. Pega Monstro constantly reach for something beyond plain comprehension, stretching songs to their limits before collapsing them back into new, more interesting forms. The Portuguese poet and writer Fernando Pessoa had a similar mutable approach to his work. Pega Monstro recite one of Pessoas poems called "O Moinho De Café" during the third act of their epic, yet romantic track "Cachupa". The track is a good example of how natural and spontaneous Pega Monstro can sound. The second half of the album starts over with the enthusiastic track "Pouca Terra", all racing chords and clouds of cymbal, building to a beautiful textural density and ecstatic finale. Pega Monstro nurture their songs, letting them follow tangents, take risks, or even fall over. Theres a sense of sisterly oneness and provision apparent in their music allowing Pega Monstro to sound instinctual, yet awash with ideas. "Fado Da Estrela Do Ouro" and "Sensação" are decidedly delicate in manner, drawing on themes of equal restlessness and wistfulness. "Sensação" even concludes with the sisters singing the traditional Portuguese folk air "At the door of the holy souls, God knocks every hour". Finally, "Odemira" draws Casa De Cima to a close in triumphant style. Drums and guitar chase each other feverishly, galloping ever faster before breaking into calmer clearings of hushed vocal reverie and serene falsetto. Casa De Cima was recorded through September 2016 by Leonardo Bindilatti." - Upset the Rhythm.

"Medical Records returns to France (by way of Berlin) to present the first full length vinyl LP by contemporary artist Peine Perdue. Peine Perdue was born in 2010 from the meeting of Berlin-based artist and musician Stephane Argillet and Coco Gallo. Peine Perdue finds its inspiration in a certain geometry, poetry, and clearness in music and art such displayed by the cold abstractions of XVIIIth century harpsichordists (Couperin, Pancrace Royer, etc.) to the graceful minimalism of Erik Satie, the sugar uncluttered pop of the 60s yéyé and finally to the arithmetic synthpop of the early 80s. Among the artists and personalities that emulate their creativity are, among others, Delphine Seyrig, ESG, Elli & Jacno, Anna Akhmatova, William Onyeabor, Luisa Casati, André Cadere, Rainer Fassbinder, or Robert Bresson. Construction, vertigo, and symmetry with sensitivity but without sentimentality. Integrating the above references into a delicate mix with very personal and cinematic sensibility led by the obsessive sensuality of Cocos voice." - Medical.

Title: Werke Fur Schlagzeug Und Elektroakustische Gerate
Format: LP
Label: Gagarin
Country: Germany
Price: $28.00
"Werke Für Schlagzeug Und Elektroakustische Geräte ("Works for Percussion and Electro-Acoustic Devices") is the second album of the Polish percussion duo Miłosz Pękala and Magda Kordylasińska. The compositions "Renaissance Gameboy #1" and "#2" (2011) by Felix Kubin were originally written for violin, saxophone, cello, piano, drums, and tape. The new versions arranged by the duo transport his pieces into the world of an extended percussion set, with marimba and vibraphone placed in the center. Additionally, several parts were recorded on tape. "Black Page #1" by Frank Zappa features close-miking recordings of guiro, reco-reco, temple blocks, and everyday objects like cups and computer. The pulse generated by dripping water and unusual percussive sets provide a new, intimate interpretation of Zappas dynamic music. Minimal music has always had a special place in the hearts of the Polish duo. In "Vermont Counterpoint" (1982) by Steve Reich, they replace the orchestra (including flutes) with vibraphone, glockenspiel, marimba, and dulcimer. By including Reichs composition on this record, Pękala and Kordylasińska refer to their own musical roots. Repetitiveness can also be heard in a piece entitled "Smells Like Victory" (2016) commissioned to Thymme Jones, the founder of a band called Cheer Accident. The composition is written for marimba, vibraphone, two Chinese gongs, electronics, and includes choreography. "Modular #1" (2016) by Miłosz Pękala completes the album. Its based on a rhythmic pattern generated by a modular synthesizer. Ongoing permeation of electronic and acoustic sounds with dynamic narrative creates a fertile ground for the musicians expression as percussionists and at the same time gives them great pleasure as players. Pękala and Kordylasińska on the album: "This album is a next step in exploring the world of percussive instruments. We recorded it mainly out of urge to present our experience as musicians of the twenty first century surrounded by contemporary art." The album comes in a special sleeve with golden hotstamp printing designed by Polish musician and artist Macio Moretti." - Gagarin.

Title: Tristes Tropiques
Format: LP
Label: Faitiche
Country: Germany
Price: $21.00
"Faitiche welcomes back Andrew Pekler, the musical director of the 2011 album Sonne = Blackbox (FAITICHE 005CD) featuring Ursula Bogner. Andrew Peklers Tristes Tropiques is an album of synthetic exotica, pseudo-ethnographic music and unreal field recordings. Jan Jelinekinterviews Andrew Pekler about Tristes Tropiques:

JJ: Youve titled your album Tristes Tropiques - a reference to Claude Lévi-Strausss famous account of his travels among native peoples in the Mato Grosso. If I remember correctly, the book can be read in two ways: as an ethnographic study of indigenous Brazilian tribes, and as a critique of anthropological methods. What exactly about Tristes Tropiquesinspired you? The melancholy travelogue, or the formation of a new, critical school of thought?

AP: Both. Lévi-Strausss constant reflection on the purpose of his work and the often melancholy tone of his writing constitute an internal tension which runs throughout the whole book. Tristes Tropiques is many things; autobiography, travelers tale, ethnographic report, philosophical treatise, colonial history. But ultimately, its the authors attempt to synthesize meaning from fragments of his own and other cultures that resonated most strongly with me - and led me to a new perspective on how I hear and make music.

JJ: Listening to Tristes Tropiques I noticed a certain oscillation between references, which is what I really like about it. Obviously, your music alludes to the beloved fairytale kitsch of exotica, but it also repeatedly shifts to a mode of ethno-poetic meditation music that seems to have no beginning or end. Where do you yourself locate the tracks gathered here?

AP: As a listener and as a musician, exotica music of the 1950s and 60s has always been a constant reference point and inspiration. And perhaps my listening has been "ruined" by exotica, but as I have dug deeper into ethnographic archives of "traditional" music, Ive come to the realization that all recordings that evoke, allude to, or ostensibly document other musical forms have a similar effect on my imagination: I am most intrigued when I perceive some coincidentally familiar element within the foreign (a tuned percussion recital from Malawi that immediately brings to mind Steve Reichian minimalism, or the Burundian female vocal duet that sounds uncannily like a cut-up tape experiment, etc.). I suppose this album is an attempt to recreate the same kind of listening experience as what Ive described, just with the electronic means that I have at hand." - Faitiche.

Title: Fishbones and Wishbones
Format: LP
Label: Forced Nostalgia
Country: Belgium
Price: $21.00
"Pelican Daughters were founded by Justin Brandis and Andy Rantzen in 1984. Using a variety of instruments, found objects & DIY tape loops, the pair released a succession of cassette-only releases into Sydney music stores. Over the course of several releases and live performances, including two cassette releases on CCP, the duo were joined over the years by occasional members Ben Fontaine, Andrew Holmes, James Fergus, Bryce Cannon and Anthony Maher (aka dub producer Sheriff Lindo). The group also recorded with Miriam Williamson of Wrong Kind Of Stone Age, a collaboration that eventually blended some Pelican Daughters tracks into the early work of long-running Australian techno act Itch-E & Scratch-E (Paul Mac and Andy Rantzen), most notably on the track "Sweetness And Light," now considered an early rave classic. A chance connection led to Fishbones & Wishbones (essentially a "best-of" from the cassette years) and Bliss being released by Kim Cascones San Francisco label, Silent Records. One further album, Darkness Before Light, remained unreleased until 2009, when it was picked up by Sydney label 4-4-2 Music for release. Fishbones & Wishbones was recorded on Portastudio between 1984-1988 in Sydney, Australia by Andy Rantzen, Justin Brandis, Bryce Cannon and Andrew Holmes. Versions of this album have been previously released on tape by Cosmic Conspiracy Productions (1988) and on CD by Silent Records (1991), but this is the first time the material has been available on vinyl. The sound of Fishbones & Wishbones draws lines between the jagged edges of the post-punk movement and into the more introspective sounds that would go on to typify so much electronic music of the early 90s.

"Recorded during the same home blasts that produced Dauphin Elegies (VHF Records, 2008), this 2007 trio session for harmonium, singing bowl, gong and esraj is one of the most ecstatic recordings in Pelts vast oeuvre. Like the legendary poet/musician for whom this album is named, Pelt have never gotten hung up on the epistemology of drones. The generation of meditative trance states is as valid when produced by Roscoe Holcombs banjo as by La Monte Youngs well-tuned piano. Hints of both lurk deep in the wells of sound Pelt produces. Two side-long slabs of aural bliss. Best heard behind a few bowls of your very best kif. Edition of 500 with stickered cover and insert."

Title: Hung On Sunday
Format: LP
Label: MIE
Country: UK
Price: $24.00
"Released in a run of 300 copies. Pelt, Part Wild Horses Mane on Both Sides, and Gate came together at Tusk Festival in Newcastle in 2012 to record this mesmerizing gamelan record. "The gamelan has long haunted Western music. Both Debussy and Satie were reportedly enraptured by the Javanese ensemble they heard playing at the Paris Exposition in 1889, and its strange textures and rhythms quietly worked their way into both composers subsequent works. Cages dreamily clattering prepared piano pieces were indebted to the gamelan. The American minimalism that followed in Cages wake is virtually unthinkable without it. In January 1942, two explorer-brothers Sheridan and Bruce Fahnestock, presented the musical fruits of their expedition to the South Seas to an audience at Town Hall in New York City: over 100 sides of gamelan music recorded on acetate discs in eastern Java, Bali, and other islands of the South Pacific. But war had been declared just weeks earlier, and Americans looked to the South Seas with darker intentions. The recordings were forgotten and did not resurface until 1986, when Sheridans widow gave them to the Library of Congress. In October 2012, at the Tusk Festival at Newcastle-upon-Tyne, UK, a summit of sorts took place. Noise emissaries from three continents came together on a Sunday to make music for an hour or so. From the United States came Mike Gangloff, Nathan Bowles, and Patrick Best of the mighty Virginia drone collective Pelt. Representing the United Kingdom were sonic pilgrims Pascal Nichols and Kelly Jayne Jones of Part Wild Horses Mane on Both Sides. And from Oceania came the transcendent New Zealand guitarist Michael Morley of Gate and, of course, the legendary Dead C. This summit proceeded without words. Their chosen means of deliberation was the gamelan: an array of gangsa and saron metallaphones and singing bowls sprawled out on the patchwork oriental rugs; a rig of gongs; the flurry of hammers and mallets; a few dozen onlookers seated cross-legged or just laying prostrate on the floor. And everyone and everything was transported. Hung On Sunday documents this extraordinary performance, when an intercontinental ensemble folded up into a mid-size room in a little corner of England tapped into the music that has long transfixed the world. The results are sublime. The first tentative taps and chimes coalesce over three quarters of an hour into something with the sonic integrity of a holy rite; the artists passing from noisenik offhandedness to breathtaking solemnity. It is a dangerous thing to conjure with alien magicks and musics. But the members of Pelt, Part Wild Horses, and Gate did so with care and reverence. And the music moves us as much as it did when the world was still young." --Brent S. Sirota; Includes a download code." - MIE.

Price: $36.00
"The score for Wojciech Jerzy Hass motion picture The Manuscript Found in Saragossa was composed in 1963 by Krzysztof Penderecki, who back then was an avant-garde artist of the tumultuous spirit in search of his own musical voice. It acquired its final shape in Warsaws Polish Radio Experimental Studio, then at its visionary best under the directorate of Josef Patkowski. The music for The Manuscript Found in Saragossa is a mind-bending mixture of uncontrollable electro-acoustics, sweeping and yet light baroque stylizations, daemonic soundings and grotesque illustrations. Released separately from the movie for the first time, after close to half of a century the score has lost none of its original magic. Quite the opposite -- drawing its vital energy from literary and cinematic phantoms, it appears to exert some sort of a demiurgic influence upon the listeners imagination, which suddenly becomes awakened to the memories of previously unrealized images, experiences and emotions. The manuscript found in Saragossa seems to have no end... and so, paraphrasing the pious monk, I license myself to call out to all travelers of imagination: Pasheko! Pasheko! In the Name of Our Lord I command you to listen and dream!" - Obuh. Taken from original masters and released for the first time. Limited to 500 numbered copies in a gatefold, solid sleeve.

Country: USA

"Exceptional solo LP from this Argentinian ex-pat, who has been based for the last decade-plus in Eastern Massachusetts. Feeding Tube previously issued the Yeppers LP with Andreas sometimes trio, Los Condenados (FTR 126LP, 2013), but this is a sample of her latest work -- insane solo sound creations that are accompanied in live performance by some very crafty puppet work. The spectacle of this live show is astounding and disorienting, but the same is true for the music shorn of the visuals. Ms. Pensados primary instrument is the computer, and her early work was created in academic settings in both Argentina and Poland. But since moving to the States, one senses the arc of her work is tending toward the Dionysian, and the sounds on Without Knowing Why are state-of-the-art noise inventions for laptop and voice. The electronics and soundscrapes share a certain tonal quality with some recent work in subliminal noise explorations by folks like Matt Krefting, Jason Lescalleet, and Aaron Dilloway. But her attitude ultimately emerges as somehow more aggressive than those boys. And the mix of post-glottal vocalese and the distended muzzy textures of her music create a very unstable base. We would suggest that listeners grab their ankles before the album starts to play, but that would spoil aspects of the records gestalt. Prepare to be MOVED." - Byron Coley, 2015.

Content explores the trauma of emerging global consciousness, acute cultural antipology and the urgent placement of democratic music today. Recorded on location in January and February, 2016. Featuring contributions from Paul Staufenbiel and Michael DarrAll, "All On A Beautiful Day" was recorded in Spring 2016 by People Like Us for "Optimized!", a week-long online a/v radio station programmed by Vicki Bennett, housed on WFMUs website which experimented with ideas of what radio might be in the world of high-speed internet broadcasting. The content included 26 new a/v artist works, including both this and Porests "Parallel Broadcasts", where people were invited to respond to the word "optimized".

Title: Gunshots At Crestridge
Format: LP
Label: Blackest Ever Black
Country: UK
Price: $22.00
"Gunshots At Crestridge is the second full-length album from Philadelphias Jesse Dewlow, recording under the moniker People Skills. The follow-up to 2014s Siltbreeze set, Tricephalic Head. Ten sunken songs, derisively adorned with rhythm and rudimentary dub effects. Bedroom elegies for the lost and irretrievable, last-ditch spells for transformation and renewal. Thurston Moore and Byron Coley likened the previous record to "South Island New Zealand pop played inside of an armored car," and that description holds here: underneath the hoods of these wracked and weather-beaten recordings are melodies of disarming beauty and optimism, bordering on the (willfully) mawkish, bubblegum ground underfoot. Whether speaking through stately keyboard pastorals ("Mint Julep"), rat-arsed rock n roll slur ("89¢ Public Render") or sulphurous aggro-electronics (the two-part title track), Gunshots At Crestridge exposes, then seeks to redeem, all of our tiny acts of self-sabotage, all of our sins against time." - Blackest Ever Black.

Price: $24.00
"This is a 1-off pressing of 100 copies only - each numbered (in various places). Musi features 6 tracks selected by the band from their past 11 years that forms a coherent and continuous work. While this is not a Best of..., it does provide an excellent introduction to the band for those not already familiar with them. Pepe Wismeer have a pretty extensive discography with a vinyl LP, CD, a remix LP and numerous CD-Rs to their name. While drawing comparisons with other artists is always difficult - and often misleading - their warm, mature and fluid musical style and melancholic visions may remind some of Coil, Current 93 and others. Their work is structured around piano and voice accompanied by electric/acoustic guitar, 5-string bass, concrete sounds, samples, oud, sitar, metallophone ... and maybe some sheep & birds & water & glass. All music recorded on analogue equipment to add warmth and handcraft to the icy atmospheres. Each copy comes with an 8-page stapled booklet + insert." -Equation

Format: Double LP
Label: Neros Neptune
Country: USA
Price: $30.00
"Double LP version. The three vinyl sides of Pere Ubu Live at the Longhorn are as much an indispensable live rock album as Modern Dance is an indispensable studio album. The show consists mainly of material from the Modern Dance album, only rocked out and swinging, more raw-nerved yet seasoned than their studio counterparts. What becomes apparent, especially on repeated listens, is how well-made this music is, how the drama and comedy flows within the modules of each song, how the songs fit together to give an audience an experience that -- while sharpened to paranoia and sensitive to harsh realities -- is as ineffable as it is concrete." -Neros Neptune.

Price: $22.00
"Alehop! and Beat Generation present a reissue of Performing Ferret Bands self-titled album, originally released in 1981. Hailing from Maidstone (Kent), Performing Ferret Band got together in 1978 and with their amateur take on music, they wrote a small but great chapter of the emergence born out of punk, when the proliferation of small labels and self-releases invaded the record shops and created a scene which developed one of the golden and most creative periods of music, despite the participants technical limitations. Later based in Manchester and inspired by comedians such as Monty Python and musicians like Captain Beefheart, The Velvet Underground, or The Fall, the Ferrets developed a personal style very close to Television Personalities, Swell Maps, or The Desperate Bicycles, all bands of questionable virtuosity. That didnt stop the Ferrets from releasing two cassettes, a 7", and an LP during their short life until 1982. Their only LP, originally released in 1981 on the bands own Pig Production label as a 300-copies pressing, is reissued here in a limited edition. Its a compendium of absurdity, genius, humor, and that naive spirit which makes humanity more believable. Includes an insert with the bands story, photos, and memorabilia; Edition of 500." - Beat Generation.

Title: No One Told Us
Format: CD
Label: Messthetics
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"Twenty-eight songs from one of D.I.Y.s iconic bands, including most of their astonishingly scarce LP, which music-historian / journo / D.I.Y.- enthusiast Johan Kugelberg described as the most seminal LP to come out of DIY ... Fantastic over enthusiastic juvenilia of an almost supernatural beauty. Whether or not the name was ironic, The Performing Ferrets were very much a performing band -- whose songs clearly grew out of the way they interacted. A curious rhythm, an engaging riff, an arresting lyrical snippet, and frequently a Melodica tumble and writhe, ferretlike, into song / groove / experiments that stood unique on the indie post-punk scene. The Ferrets started out in Maidstone, Kent, in 1978 but they parlayed academic careers in Manchester, Portsmouth, Nottingham and Preston into appearances all over the U.K.. John Peel once lamented that every gig he did there seemed to be a Ferret there clutching a demo tape in its sweaty paw. Theres a touch of The Fall and the TV Personalities, a little garage and Beat, hints of the rhythm-propelled sounds of the Monochromes, Feelies, Beefheart, Gang of 4/Delta 5 or Diagram Brothers, and a dry wit that had more to do with the Ferrets favorite authors and comedians than anyone from the class of 77, but the Ferrets response to D.I.Y. was all their own. In Mandolin (performed on a detuned mandolin that sounds like a toy piano) they complain, The independent market / Is just a bring-and-buy sales ... God help those who do it small scale / Youve got to watch those pennies ... Youre bound to lose pounds / We just cant make money (oh no, oh no!) Their conclusion? Theyd just as soon give their records away for free (though the planned free flexi never happened). No One Told Us collects 28 tracks from 1980-82, although only three rather inscrutable tunes saw wide distribution back in the day on their lone Peel-championed 45. They also released two cassettes (perhaps 200 each) and 300 odd copies of their self-titled LP. After two years in Manchester the Ferrets wound down when two of them ended up in Miaow with Cath Carroll, another took over the editorship of Manchesters legendary City Fun, and a fourth got a doctorate in immunology. The complete sagas in the 12-page booklet, along with photos, artifacts, and almost 80 minutes of the Ferrets finest on the CD." - Messthetics

"Mexican Summer is beyond psyched to present a hefty, heavy gatefold edition of Linda Perhacss lone album, Parallelograms. On the strength of this single album, recorded in 1970, Linda Perhacs remains a towering figure in the world of psychedelia, folk, female singer-songwriters, and acid-visionaries alike. Lauded by artists as diverse as Daft Punk, Devendra Banhart, Animal Collective, and Swedish metal band Opeth, in the 21st century, her album remains a testament to her singularity of vision. Ignored upon its initial release, Parallelograms seemingly sank without a trace, and Perhacs gave up making music for the next forty years. Psych fans the world over unearthed and began to obsess over this album in the meantime: a spine-tingling blend of crystalline vocal melodies from Perhacs, mind-expanding sound effects, and on the title track, one of the finest aural hallucinations ever captured, equal parts sound sculpture and visual music." -Mexican Summer

Original copies of the second of two CD versions from Wild Places (the first label to reissue "Parallelograms"). This one, from 2003, includes 6 previous unreleased demos. "Linda Perhacs Parallelograms is one of those exceptions that proves the rule; the American equivalent to Vashti Bunyans Just Another Diamond Day. An uncanny mix of Aquarian folk and ethereal, avant-garde treatments, Parallelograms was created in the heart of hippy country, LAs Topanga Canyon, by a dental hygienist who was inspired by nature and by the cultural revolution going on around her. “Im not a drug user,” she says now, still living on Topanga Canyon Boulevard. “I never was in the ‘60s and ‘70s, but I loved those people because they were dealing with energies, and our conversation level would be very deep. Im deeply intuitive, I see and hear things the average person might not experience.

Parallelograms was produced by one of Perhacs dental clients, Leonard Rosenmann, a film composer who had written the scores for Rebel Without A Cause and Barry Lyndon. Over nine months, with a host of experienced players on call – “I felt like a street urchin being schooled by Picasso,” she says – Rosenmann fleshed out Perhacs astonishing and intuitive musical vision. When Parallelograms was finished, it sounded like a masterpiece, but the Kapp label pressed it so badly that, Perhacs says, “I could only bear to listen to it once. I then threw my copy of my own record away.” Promotion was negligible, sales non-existent. Obscurity beckoned.” - from Linda Perhacs website.

Title: Spiritual Church Movement
Format: LP
Label: Digitalis
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Perispirit is the duo of Ricardo Donoso and Luke Moldof and they have been haunting the Northeast of the United States for a couple of years now. After a slew of releases on Prurients Hospital Productions label and Ricardos own Semata Productions, Spiritual Church Movement has Perispirit taking an unexpected turn as they unleash their most cohesive and accomplished work to date. Spiritual Church Movement is the sound of two worlds colliding and forming something entirely new in the aftermath. In this case, digital and analog systems are turned against each other. Moldofs analog source material was blitzed and manipulated while Donoso worked his sorcery via digital matrix, showing that both approaches can win the prize. Squalid sonic debris spill out and melt together with beats that are barely there and melodic shrapnel to create this weirdly compelling, utterly disjointed composition. And if you thought Moldof and Donoso were concerned about expectations, Spiritual Church Movement is proof it was the last thing on their minds. Synthesizers are mauled by digital processes, battered down to bare bones, turning passages of melody into disease-stricken organisms paired with fractured, plodding rhythms, at times sounding like Autechre attempting to make a noise record: its well and truly fucked. The expertise with which everything is constructed, though, is what makes these pieces excel. Everything is where it should be and the combination is almost religious in its attention to detail. But before the duo gets too close to the sun, everything is burned to the ground and the process starts over. Just when you think you have it figured it out, Spiritual Church Movement is off on another disfigured tangent. Over the course of these two sprawling sides, the cult of Perispirit is born. Ricardo Donoso and Luke Moldof carry with them the conviction that anything is possible and nothing is out of bounds. Spiritual Church Movement is their manifesto. Mastered by Brad Rose and cut to vinyl at Dubplates + Mastering, Berlin. Limited to 500 copies only." - Digitalis.

Label: Happy Zloty

Price: $16.00
"This vinyl only release is the first in German label Happy Zlotys limited edition Splitting Series. Its a similar idea to the Fat Cat series of 12"s-the two improvising trios Perlonex and Julijuni are each given a side apiece. Perlonex are Ignaz Schick on various objects, turntables etc, Jörg Maria Zeger on guitar and Burkhard Beins on percussion, all musicians who are active in various other improvising contexts. The Perlonex side begins with a drone and delicate, looping guitar arpeggio before heading into a post-industrial, post-AMM landscape full of feedback, clanking chains and unidentifiable scrapes and thuds. The piece gathers density as it moves along, becoming a thickly matted assembly of sounds, with a guitar loop as a constant. Perlonex are a cohesive unit and they all pull in the same direction when they play, producing a commited and intense piece of group communication. Julijunis sound sources are Powerbook, feedback and guitar, coming from Michael Rieken, Tim Tetzner and Ansgar Wilken respectively. Their three tracks are airier but less assured then the Perlonex side. As with Perlonex, recognisable guitar sounds are set against abstract, untuned noises. The music is light-footed and shifts readily from episode to episode. Their sense of space steers them away from thick textures. The guitar is again used gracefully but the laptop occasionally sound sluggish compared to the other sound sources. The music is fitfully engaging but none of the pieces quite hangs together as a fully on-the-boil performance." - WIRE, Will Montgomery, May 2004.

Format: LP
Label: Dark Entries
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Dark Entries has tapped into their Gothic roots to unearth a 29-year old lost album now available for the first time on vinyl. Years Of Struggle Against The Lies, The Stupidity And The Cowardice was written, recorded and produced by a trio of Danish 18-year olds during a weekend in December 1981. Unable to pay for the recording session, the master tapes were confiscated and the album remained unreleased until the summer of 1985 where it was issued as a bonus cassette with the Danish art magazine Atlas. This is the first and only album from Pesteg Dred, a trio from Denmark made up of Martin Hall (Ballet Mécanique, Under For, Before), Per Hendrichsen (Dialogue, Uté-Va) and vocalist Inge Shannon, who later starred in Halls project SS-Say. The band combines dark rumbling basslines with austere guitar shrieks and the occasional cello/violin/autoharp to create the perfect tension of soft/loud synthesized post punk. But what steals the spotlight of Martin Halls well-crafted production are the dynamic vocals of Inge Shannon who ranges from cold Teutonic monotone to shrill cacophony at times bringing to mind Nico, new romantic chanteuse Ronny or Simona Buja from Kirlian Camera. This landmark album could have fit perfectly on the 4AD or Factory Records roster alongside A Certain Ratio, Bauhaus or Joy Division. All tracks have been remastered from the original master tapes by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, CA and include a printed interview with Martin Hall as well as a silk-screened image of the original reel to reel master tape. Limited to 500 hand-numbered copies so grab one while you can." -Dark Entries

"Ah I remember it well: After a slurry of then-common Rubber O Cement Detroit jammers around the end of the 90s= It was post gig time 2am and the crew was slow moving/ smoke headed and the always pleasant Grux (Rusty) was digging thru the (then slender) Zone Hut lp stacks, mumbling under his breath about some kinda displeasure: The hard low tech hard jamming SHYLOCK s/t was spinning wildly away on the deck- and Grux pulls his cardboard google suit away from his mug and grunts "Progressive rock...nothing but...I HATE IT..." Funny coming from a dude who always called me MONGO to be shocked by the stack of INTELLIGENT rock: but not surprising to get some prime SF street dumpster digging GRIME back at my grill from the PHD of Goofery.... It was that moment I realized "YES" - finally some jammage that not even the JAMMERS like...FREEDOM. I mean prog rock is like the almighy REGGAE to some: those you cant fly on the plane are gonna jam up & grind the engines to a hater-hault: ALL DAY. PROG: Its outsider-outsider music but with CHOPS and CONCEPTS. Anyone can sound like BYRDS but fuck find me a unit FAST that sounds like anyone from the Killer Dutch camp of Cargo, Windy Corner, Cliffhanger, Ahora Mazda, or the grim brillance of the entire Xhol Carvan outputs or the stark and ragged downer Gravestone lp. Even the well knowns: The Nice, Finch, Colosseum, any Vertigo Jammers: yes those have "the aura" to alienate & "fantasy-ize" the internal of your brain-existence....- Ever read Edgar Allan Poe WHILE "Forbidden Planet" is stroking your globes and massaging the electrics in your nug jelly on a long night ALONE and then fell asleep only to dream of HUXLEY? Ever wish Jazz was more.....makeup friendly wi/ dragons with a slight flirt of GLAM? Can you be a loner and draw Dragons? Did you spend your high school years with one thumb in "Maximum Rock and Roll and the other in A Crack in the Cosmic Egg"? Then playboy you are PROGRESSIVE, be proud. So what is this odd rugged looking lp here? This platter has been called the "first" private press Greek prog lp from the "late and weird" period of prog where things were getting softer and more "living room" soft-strange (re: Mexican Scene ala Iconoclasta) and nearly all the raw homemade privates were starting to sound like Jeff Libermans (amazing) "Summertime" jam off his phemon "Synergy" rec- so dont have the 1980 year by Pete and Royce fool yeah: This Greek duo with all sorts of elaborate help are throwing down a wicked and tuneful dose of Cantenbury UK Cressida-slowed downed Gracious!- styled "Steel Mill" English UK worship deal that can fit right next to your Spring reboot and NOT be filed in next to your Socrates, Poll or Blue Birds wrecks.... Organ runs the game here: there are slight flashes of the claustrophobic high end synth lurch to bring/jerk you back to the 80s but the majority of the movements are rich lavish Hammond pensive deals that recall DOM "Edge of Time" as much as they lay lazily in the thick Emerson shadow. Great songs here: In classic PROG style there is a short intro to side two then a lengthy broken up long concept track about "Death and Decay" thatll sink your boat FAST into a pool of complex arrangements and gadgetry: all well played and thought out: nothing on DERAM was this whacked out, not the World Of Oz single played on 16rpm can get this Brit-close..Even somehow with what I image to be a small budget this thing does NOT sound like the 3 Grit Basement attack of the almighty YEZDA URFA: Instead its big clean sound with strong emphasis on the song writing and plenty ohooks/ the heralded "interplay" is kept slightly and subtle in the back rendering. The beyond amazing cover art is gonna draw/line you in but the SONGAGE is gonna keep you on a one year + lease with option to lurk for an Original. There are many reasons to own this Pete and Royce jammer: 1) its the first time its on wax and as close you are gonna get to owning a Oktohxos-label deal w/o having a child JUST to sell on the black market for loot grip and OG- 2)its way better than the follow up "Days of Destruction" - 3)you can leave the cover laying around in your hut/zone next to your old school ANTI HERO sk8 decks so anyone over will be magnetized to the area by the raw homemade brilliance and booosh and instant convo igniter happens 4) if you are new to the Progressive school this is a fine entrance point before you hooked on the real raw shit like Cobra & Spectator Records camp/ or god forbid you will take the leap into the almighty Rock Progressivo Italiano..... So anyway you shape it up having "Suffering Of Tomorrow" your greasy mitts you are already gonna started turning SOMEONE off: but the nectar of which you ween from Pete and his homey Royce will far exceed whatever SUFFERING you are under a spell from....." - John Olson

"The second of the Groovys was actually the first to be recorded, back in 1974. Sky Yen dated back to PETE SHELLEYs college days, where he chaired an Electronic Music Society, playing records over the intercom during lunch hour. After hed made the recordings that became Sky Yen six years later, he added them to his playlist-and his schoolmates consternation. The material wasnt exactly easy listening/ambient style-it was raw waves of oscillator tones, wildly leaping up and down and stretching out into a pair of twenty-minute pieces., Thirty years of electronics-saturated music culture lends perspective to the appeal of Sky Yen-the albums edges are still jagged and sharp." -Drag City.

Title: Last Summer on Earth/Grapey Day
Format: LP
Label: Feeding Tube
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Pete Nichols is one of Brattleboro VTs many talented polymaths. He runs the Spooky Town Tapes label, records bands at Peters World Studio, and is a member of Great Valley. This album -- his first solo LP -- collects the previously issued Grapey Day cassette, and adds a matching suite of songs for your listening pleasure. Nichols muse is a bizarre pop/outsider hybrid, recalling everyone from Tracey Trance to Big Star at various moments. The songs are sweet nuggets of form, transmuted by itchy fingers into something both more and less than pop-tongue-aktion. The arrangements can be nearly straight (as on the sweet Yo La Tengo-ism of A Trip), slightly off (Staying Homes evocation of Peabody-era Chilton) or sound like a boll weevil from the cast of Godspell covering Jad Fair (Girls Dont Like Guys in Bands Anymore). Swallowed whole, the album will make your throat feel a little odd, but not in a truly unpleasant way. Indeed, some doctors somewhere are almost certain to prescribe it as a tonic. So you might as well get ahead of the curve and slurp through it today." --Byron Coley, 2014; includes download code. Edition of 250.

"The point of origin for the radio play �??Long live the people of the revolution�?? are the texts Bruno Schönlank and Ernst Toller wrote in the 1910s and 1920s for the revolutionary speaking choirs which were part of the communist labour movement. Here, Otomo Yoshihide�??s manipulations of those original recordings meet Raymond Pettibon�??s captivating lyrics. His revisions and translations of those utopian pieces recall the texts of his drawings and paintings, also known since his collaborations with bands like Black Flag and Sonic Youth. Both are supported by the fabulous Frankfurt based trio Blank which consists of free-jazz legend Rüdiger Carl, Oliver Augst and Christoph Korn who both work in the grey are between improvised music, electronic music and free noise. Together with Yoshihide and Pettibon they transform that apparently anachronistic combination of art and politics into a highly challenging, at the same time touching piece of art.The design of the labels and the stunning silkscreen-cover is by Raymond Pettibon. Thanks to one of the most unique collaborations in contemporary art and music, both musically and textually �??Long live the people of the revolution�?? is without doubt a masterpiece.

Title: Freedom Of Speech
Format: LP

Country: Germany
Price: $26.00
"LP version, 180 gram vinyl. Originally released in 1981 on Sky Records, Bureau B reissues the second album by Phantom Band, a Cologne combo assembled by Can drummer Jaki Liebezeit. By this point in the bands history, ex-Can bass player Rosko Gee (earlier Steve Winwoods bassist in Traffic) had left the band. The surviving quartet managed without a bass for the most part (or substituted a keyboard) and invited spoken-word performer Sheldon Ancel to step up to the microphone. And while the debut album revealed many Caribbean or African influences and a generally positive frame of mind, Freedom Of Speech is a somewhat darker avant-garde rock manifesto, interspersed with individual dub or reggae pieces. Regular Phantom Band members alongside Jaki Liebezeit included keyboarder Helmut Zerlett, known to a wider television audience in Germany through the Harald Schmidt Show, percussionist Olek Gelba and guitarist Dominik von Senger, all drawn from the deep pool of Cologne musical talent which has given rise to so many projects over the past thirty years: Dunkelziffer, Damo Suzuki Band, Unknown Cases ("Masimba Bele"), Club Off Chaos, and Trance Groove, to name just a few.

"LP version, 180 gram vinyl. Originally released in 1980 on Sky Records, Bureau B reissues the debut album by Phantom Band, a Cologne combo assembled by Can drummer Jaki Liebezeit. In spite of continuing in the vein of the last three Can albums, the Phantom Band (recording three albums themselves) remained unknown to many who would count themselves fans of Can. All of their albums are quite different from each other, even though there was just a single change in personnel: while ex-Can bass player Rosko Gee (earlier Steve Winwoods bassist in Traffic, now with the Helmut Zerlett Band) played a significant part in both the music, vocals and the production of the first, he was absent from the next. Featured heavily here is Jaki Liebezeits inimitable monotone polyrhythmic drumming and the Phantom Bands predilection for hypnotic (Jamaican) grooves. Regular Phantom Band members alongside Jaki Liebezeit included keyboarder Helmut Zerlett, known to a wider television audience in Germany through the Harald Schmidt Show, percussionist Olek Gelba and guitarist Dominik von Senger, all drawn from the deep pool of Cologne musical talent which has given rise to so many projects over the past thirty years: Dunkelziffer, Damo Suzuki Band, Unknown Cases ("Masimba Bele"), Club Off Chaos, and Trance Groove, to name just a few.

"Well, its been a damn long time since we released their debut album Shishimumu back when they were called The Ponys, but we sure are happy theres finally a proper follow-up, even if it took six years to happen. If anything, the long wait says something to the greatness & humility of the band; never bending to commercial concerns, ego, hype, or changing trends & changing times. In fact, Take To The Trees picks up just about right where Shishimumu left off all those years back, another little nugget of timeless psychedelic pop perfection. Of course, there is a new level of maturity and depth to the songwriting here, but theres still plenty of slightly naive & youthful charm. And to be certain, the world these guys create is just as surreal now as its always been. Musically, things come together just right, with thick, swirling, chiming triple electric guitar textures, spot-on drumming, liquid but powerful bass, gurgling moog, acoustic strumming, accordion, and sweet soaring fuzz-tones. Vocals hover as high & sweet as ever, harmonizing, doubling, and layering heavenly. The mood of the album floats through drifting fragile melancholy, quirky pop, crunchy psychedelic rockers and anthemic rave-ups, often all within the same track. Beautifully recorded, but never over polished...just the way a great pop record should be. So forget all pretense, folks, maybe not freak folk enough for Kill Rock Stars aint such a bad thing at all.

Staples of their live show, like Its OK About the War (Gettysburg Jam) and Bringing Back the Dead get a more polished, sublime treatment, while longer tracks like opener I Believe In Everything and Overkirsh present yet more experimentation, the former resembling a jam off Amon Duuls 1969 classic Psychedelic Underground played backward and superimposed with television dialogue.

Phantom Payn Days was made in the mid to late 90s and has never been released. Its his final LP and is overflowing with all the elements that romanticized, loner / stoner music claims, an encoded expression of highly private feelings, an ambiguous, emotional quotient, and a dark, murkily melodic vibe. Its a record that first and foremost lives and breathes with an endless stream of great songs.

Pulsed Lavage expertly maneuvers the multiple stylistic themes within, from opiate-induced, narcotic bliss through to hammer-and-nail, dancefloor techno. Pulsed Lavage is as raw as it is beautiful, zig-zagging between moods almost like the automated surgical tools of its namesake. Pulsed Lavage, fun for all the Manson family." - No.

Format: CD

Country: New Zealand
Price: $17.00
"Disparlure is the first release by French trio Phéromone. Comprised of Pascal Battus, Eric Cordier and Jean-Luc Guionnet, the trio have been together for some three years performing improvised music using guitar, hurdy gurdy, electronics and various electro-acoustic devices involving sundry objects with contact mics. Cordier and Guionnet have played together since the mid-80s in various settings, most recently in Schams and Synapses and also as a duo (discs on Shambala and Selektion). Battus is a new collaborator for them, a guitar player with an extended technique, recently praised in the Wire by no less an authority than Keith Rowe as one of the younger guitarists worth watching out for. This disc consists of a continuous piece (indexed as two tracks) edited from home recordings of the group by long-time collaborators Eric La Casa and Pierre-Henri Thiebaut. Their favoured concert set up is to occupy three corners of the performance space and seat the audience in the middle. The analogy is with the functioning of the eponymous insect hormones, which transmit messages to other insects at a distance. The audible messages of the three musicians transmit signals from one player to the next, with the audience hearing the interaction of the signals in surround sound. This is particularly apt as the overall effect of the music on this disc is of a darkened environment full of animal calls, as unseen predators stalk small mechanical prey and flocks of metal birds perch in the tinfoil trees. Actual sound sources are impossible to identify with certainty as the various stringed and amplified instruments surge and recede in a dazzling display of alternating synchronicity and conflict. The variety of sounds, the virtuosity of the interplay and the obvious mix of both seriousness and humour in their approach mark Phéromone out as a trio to keep an eye on in the future." - Corpus Hermeticum.

Title: Does This Guy Stack Up?
Format: LP
Label: Upset the Rhythm
Country: UK
Price: $18.00
"The Pheromoans are a six-piece experimental rock band from the South East of England who deal in deadpan DIY music. Wedded to the mundane, surreal reportage of our lives as reflected in the media, their music manages to address the truly restless boredom of everyday life. These are songs from underneath the ergonomic desk, a glimpse through the commuter window, blasted through with brilliant suburban sunshine. Over the last three years, the band have put out a slew of releases, including numerous EPs, 7"s and three albums through labels as diverse as Night People, Convulsive, Sweet Rot, Monofonus Press and their own imprint, Savoury Days. These releases largely focused on a ramshackle, wayward rock ethic, underpinned by lyricist Russell Walkers dry, observational musings. Does This Guy Stack Up? witnesses a slight departure from their sound of old. With the recent addition of keyboard/violin player Dan Bolger to the band, their songs have leaned into a more pop-balanced realm, with the bands experimental tape collage approach sounding more natural than ever. The bass (Christian Butler aka The Octogram), drums (James Hines) and guitars (James Tranmer, Alex Garran) together forge a coherent foundation for Walkers voice to ramble amongst the radiant synth and electronic flourishes. Central to the appeal of The Pheromoans are Russell Walkers insightful, often wonderfully humorous, self-deprecating lyrics that paint a picture of all of us as outsiders. Finding much material in the slow and steady decline of the 21st century and its vain pursuits, Walker isnt afraid to rattle the cage of populist politics. With Does This Guy Stack Up?, The Pheromoans deconstruct a very English sense of ennui and in doing so show us its nonsensical building blocks. This album proves The Pheromoans are at their best when shooting from the sidelines." - Upset the Rhythm. Limited to 750 copies.

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

Title: Light Sleep
Format: LP
Label: Mesh-Key
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"Propulsive rhythms from early drum machines, whirring electronics and dreamlike vocals make for a jaw-dropping late-career masterpiece from legendary Japanese musician Phew, recorded solo at Phews home in Tokyo.

Phews career began in the late 1970s as lead singer of Osaka punk group Aunt Sally (whose only full-length was released by Vanity Records in 1979). Ryuichi Sakamoto produced her first solo release in 1980, a two-song single, and in 1981 Pass Records released her debut album, a bonafide classic recorded with original Can members Holger Czukay and Jaki Liebezeit at Conny Planks studio in Germany. Shes forged a singular path over the past thirty-plus years, collaborating with folks from DAF, Einstürzende Neubauten, Boredoms, Anton Fier, Bill Laswell and more. Its borderline sacrilegious to compare an artist as unique as Phew with anyone else, but for those unfamiliar with her work, “Light Sleep” might be described as a more animated Nico singing (in Japanese) for early Suicide. Mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at D+M, Berlin." - Mesh-Key. Limited second pressing with slightly altered jacket and insert design.

"Masks and outfits made of coconut husks, rice steamers, shredded rags and clanging bells transform participants of Thailands Phi Ta Khon festival into ghosts, devils, demons, and spirits unleashed for a bacchanal. Outrageous wooden phalluses and plenty of rice whiskey heighten licentious behavior as Mo Lam -- Thai country groove music -- blasts from makeshift bands in the back of pickup trucks. Described as "The Mardi Gras from Hell" and "Thai Halloween," Phi Ta Khon is a ghost festival that takes place every year in the Isan province of Northern Thailand. Meaning "ghosts with human eyes" or "ghosts follow people," Phi Ta Khon features magnificent costumes, ornate masks, decorative phallic icons, strange ceremonies, drinking, dancing, and endless addictive Mo Lam music in higher doses than most souls can process. A mind-blowing and obscure tradition hidden within the Indochine peninsula. Filmed on location by Robert Millis and Richard Bishop in June 2004, Phi Ta Khon: Ghosts of Isan, is shot from the perspective of a participant, ensuring an intense and immersive experience for the viewer. The DVD includes an 8-page insert with extensive liner notes, full color images and a short bonus film of Thai spirit house details (spirit houses are everywhere in Thailand and are said to be the abodes of departed loved ones, relatives and guardian spirits).

The group is two Swedish males, who apparently have never been positively identified. The music they perform is in the realms of experimental folk-rock, with the opening track "In Kommer Gösta" featuring a devastating Godz-like brilliance (easily one of the memorable tracks in the entire Silence catalog). Shakers, wobbly effects, lethargic acoustic guitars, bedroom percussion and one of the most idiosyncratic band names ever -- for shambling stoner nonsense, this is Swedens finest entry into the field by far." - FE.

Price: $36.00
"In collaboration with Nigel Crosss Shagrat label, and Glenns own Snow Star concern, Feeding Tube is tickled to release the 40th Anniversary Deluxe edition of Glenn Phillipss first album released under his own name, Lost at Sea. Originally issued by Snow Star in 75, then licensed by Virgin in the UK, after Peel started playing it, LAS has long been a favorite of people of true refinement. Glenn had joined the legendary Hampton Grease Band while still in high school. He played with them their whole six-year span, and was a key component of the sound on their sole album -- the sprawling Music to Eat (which should be part of everyones collection). Following the dissolution of the Grease Band, and some additional personal troubles, Glenn decided to record LAS at home, using his working live band of the moment. The results were amazing. Glenn had always been able to conjure up flash for his solo spots with the Grease Band, but the playing here rose to a whole new level. The album is one of the best homemade prog LPs of the era. Hints of McLaughlin, Zappa, and Duane Allman all manage to coexist in an instrumental jungle that is dense, angular, and boss. Packed inside the original fantasy art sleeve, now a heavy-duty Stoughton gatefold with pics and notes by Glenn and Phil McMullen (of Ptolemaic Terrascope), this new set has also grown an extra LP. The music is of a piece, and a truly excellent expansion of this singular album. It was a long time coming, but we think it was worth the wait. Dig fast, they wont last" --Byron Coley, 2015.

"According to the original St. Louis punk crowd, the Philosophic Collage and band leader Craig Kurtz (aka Timothy Tyme) were mildly difficult, if not completely off-putting. Their brand of abrasive music and Craigs "genius" schtick was too hard to take. When the band released this EP in 1981, most were confused by the four blasts of Art Punk/Midwestern No Wave, uh...if there really is such a thing as No Wave in the Midwest. It did impress Rough Trade enough to pick it up for distribution, even if the local response was less than enthusiastic. The band only managed to play a handful of area gigs before nobody wanted to book them. They were far more successful in Chicago. Playing larger gigs to more receptive audiences and even signing on with a manager. Two cassettes were released after the EP, but it was all over by 1982 when Craig split the band up after an attempt to relocate to Chicago had failed. BDR Records (the St. Louis-only division of Rerun Records) presents a deluxe reissue of this curiosity. 500 copies pressed on thick black vinyl. Housed in a heavy duty glue-pocket sleeve with a double-sided 14"x7" insert featuring vintage zine write-ups, ads and reviews, along with new liner notes by Craig Kurtz." -BDR.

Title: Eleven Songs
Format: LP
Label: Care In The Community
Country: UK
Price: $23.00
"After the critical success of his 2010 debut album, Things to Do and Make, composer Ergo Phizmiz returned to a string of often award-winning commissions for radio (BBC 3 and 4 and German national radio) theater and opera before coming back full circle to the melodic three-minute popular song form. Earlier this year, over the space of a few weeks, and in typically prolific style, he refined and self-recorded a number of ideas that had been forming in his head while busy with other projects. Leaving behind the favorable comparisons to the 1960s Canterbury Sound or Vivian Stanshall of his debut and occupying less identifiable territory, the resulting Eleven Songs is a leaner, harder collection of songs that, as the title suggests, each stand in their own right. Although ostensibly the album consists of ten songs and an instrumental, Ergo considers "Space Dance," a Sun Ra tribute, in the manner of "Lieder ohne Worte," a song without words. With no default mode of music-making, but versed in so many, it would be fair to call Ergo a music conceptualist. But the purposeful construction of his writing and production methods are always in the service, rather than at the expense, of the pure joy of what makes a good song. Anyone who has seen Ergo perform will instantly recognize in these songs his natural theatricality, narrative drive, and a lack of pretension that allows music to be a shared experience. This is a highly addictive album that should echo the chorus of voices that acclaimed his first album with the lament that there arent more pop musicians like this." -Care In The Community.

"Discrepant presents an album from UK-based radio producer, collagist, writer, composer, and filmmaker,Ergo Phizmiz. White label, hand-stamped, limited. Vinyl only. Imagine a machine where any material can be placed before you, and infinitely bent, squashed, stretched, rotated, inverted, repeated, depleted, converted, bastardized, beautified, mortified, twisted, shifted, and at no cost to the original material at hand. This original material, be it a piece of wood, or a piggy-bank, or a toaster, or a dog, can, at the whim of the operator, either be integrated into the mishmash of metamorphoses, or can sit from a distance and look on at all of his transformed clones. The digital sound editing environment, of all the achievements of computing, is the place where dreams can be given free rein. Any sound can be metamorphosed into any other. Anything can dance with anything else, in layer upon infinite layer, and the nature of the object itself can whirl and shift and change and play and do anything it bloody well wants to do. This is something I whiled away ten years playing with, until sound feels like a gelatinous gloop that can be formed between the hands. But then my fingers became sticky. And the only solution to sticky fingers, of course, is to clean them. Consequently, the computer has become like a slightly removed acquaintance cum employee. And, for better or worse, every return I make to the digital music environment becomes overcome with theory, or at least, limitations. The collages included here as Two Quartets are explorations of the pure interaction of four different pieces of music, without any interference as to the nature of the sounds -- nothing has been digitally manipulated. The focus is purely on editing -- both of a technical-musical nature, and games of chance, throwing different materials together in space-and-time and seeing how they party." -Ergo Phizmiz.

"Greatdividing is one of the most essential features of the Australian musical landscape. There are few who appear to be appreciative of its rough and rewarding terrain, but those who do know the geography better than most. The two bands here are one band. Both are comprised of Exiles From Clowntown alumni, arob and sootieb. The two loose, side-spanning manifestations on offer bear much in resemblance to the disjointed and purely engaging slop-rock of the Exiles. Its impossible to tell which is the �a-side� due to both being littered with several, seemingly unrelated numbers and sigils. In fact, the record appears to be a testament to irritation par excellence; it is a detested size (10�) assembled out of unpopular materials (polycarbonate), featuring bands that do not exist, playing music that moves an inch. But what an inch it is! Ill go with the Pho Band first; drum and guitar walk around the room uncomfortably, run into each other, shake hands and make nice before leaving for the pub. Repetition is the key here. Two old blokes in a room, the sound of encroaching senility (or refinement). Drunk, abject, confused, where else to go but down? Its ok, I can say that without fear of too much reprisal, arob used to be my landlord (sorry about the rug). The �other� side is similarly aimless n entrancing . Hypnotic guitar and what might be an organ or might not be push a rock up shit hill but never reach the top. Nor do they need to, it is the process that matters. Despite being a disreputably unreliable format, these two cuts sound bloody fantastic.

Country: Japan
Price: $23.00
"Includes insert. Something special happens when a talented, versatile singer teams up with a visionary, attentive, and focused producer. This remarkable collection is the cream of such a collaboration, featuring vocalist Phairin Phonphibun and her late-70s and early-80s work with Thai studio legend Surin Paksiri. These ten songs showcase Phonphibuns mastery of a range of Isan musical styles, always skilled, always singular, and always soulful. Her spirit-lifting, authentic molam voice is honored here by the work of the still-active production genius Paksiri, who realizes that as wonderful as a beautiful voice is, when that voice is set, gem-like, in a fitting and inspiring musical environment, the results are timeless. (N.B. "Mo" is an artist and "lam" is a kind of performance art in which the artist tells a story using tonal inflections. In other words, the term "molam" refers to both the singer and art form. Molam pieces are not, strictly speaking, "songs.") All of these songs were originally released as 7" records on Paksiris own label, before the cassette era devolved, for lesser talents, into a production line of sound-alikes. Every song has a thoughtful, unique arrangement, with a style and sensibility that separates them from other molam and luk thung of every era. In this sense, Paksiri can be ranked along with renowned auteur producers of the Western musical world, with his attention to detail and keen musical sense evident on every track, retaining an undeniable Thai essence while introducing disco, soul, and rock elements. A highlight here is the title-tune, one of Phomphibuns signature songs, featured in the 1978 film Mon Rak Menam Mun; it so impressed Thai show-biz big boss Waiphot Phetsuphan that he asked Paksiri to produce his own cover version.

Title: Trowo Phurnag Ceremony
Format: Double LP
Label: Ideologic Organ
Country: France
Price: $26.00
"This voyage began in the middle of the 1990s in Moscow, when a group of artists and musicians led by Alexei Tegin and based at the legendary Fabrique of Cardinal Art commenced their studies of traditional ritual music, drifting away from the field of contemporary electroacoustic and industrial music with the intent to delve deeper into the ancient musical cultures of ancient Egypt, Iran and Tibet. The original 2003 line-up of the project that emerged as a result was dubbed Phurpa (one of the five tutelary deities of the Father Tantra in Bon tradition), and all the members have carried on with their research in the field of Bon and Buddhist liturgies up to the present day. Before Buddhism reached Tibet, local people had practiced involved shamanic rites derived from various ancestral cults. Later on, circa the VI-IX century A.D., a conflict between the local tradition, namely, the pre-Buddhist religion of Bon (which originates from Central Asia) and Tantric Buddhism (hailing from the North of India) gave birth to a unique cultural phenomenon known as Tibetan Buddhism, which combines an extensive metaphysical corpus and an advanced philosophical system with pristine ceremonial practices that reach down through many centuries. In the X-XI century A.D., the monastic ensemble came into being. It has got a lot in common with the Chinese court ensembles of the Tang dynasty; nevertheless, the Tibetan ceremonial ensemble has preserved its authenticity and kept a large number of primordial elements stemming from the ancient Tibeto-Burmanese music intact to this day. A typical ensemble usually includes a pair of nga drums, several rolmo cymbals and a pair of gyaling oboes, as well as telescopic dunchen horns, dunkar shells and short wandun horns. One of the unique features of the Tibetan monastic choir is a specific kind of overtone chanting, called "rgyud-skad," or the Tantric voice, which is based on the principle of the singers transmogrification during the so-called "chanting meditation." The ritual Tibetan instruments as used by the ensemble include the following: dunchen, gyaling, silnyen, bub, damaru, kanling, nga, shang. The ensemble adheres to the rgyud-skad tradition of Tantric overtone chanting. Stephen OMalley comments: "Russian group led by the contemporary artist Alexei Tegin take on a traditional and ancient form of Tibetan ritual music by the name of Bon. While many familiar aspects will be revealed to the informed listener, the group PHURPA takes the polyphonic singing style to a lower key and a slower pace. Over the course of 4 LP sides, this meditative listen unveils many spectral illusions and invigorating evolutions in sonic possibilities." Originally released on CD by Sketis Music, Russia, 2008.

Singer-songwriter Armando Piazza from Naples was joined by renowned US guitarist Shawn Phillips on bass, acoustic and electric guitar for this rarity, originally released on the obscure Black Beautiful Butterfly label in 1972; since it was sold only at concerts and by mail, it was even then difficult to find. And what a pity! Acid-psychedelic ballads in English, with bursts of fuzz guitar and excellent use of electric instruments as well as abundant acoustic guitar (the good people at Missing Vinyl say that the fuzz bass on ‘The House on the Hill’ will blow your mind and… speakers away)!

Title: S/T
Format: LP
Label: Vinilissimo
Country: Spain
Price: $26.00
"A recording of disarming delicacy, the only album by Pic Nic was released by the Hispavox label in the hazy year of 1968 after the short, one-year life of the five-piece, and it featured an innocent and touching cover which immediately invited people to find out what was behind it. The formation of the group began in 1966 Barcelona after the split of Brenners Folk, a short-lived band created by the Venezuelan musician Vytas Brenner. They included most of the original members of what later would become Pic Nic, mainly guitarist Toti Soler, then 17, Jordi Sabatés and, of course, Jeanette. The rest of Pic Nics line-up was completed by Isidoro "Doro" de Montaberry and Mexican Mario Alfonso "Al" Cárdenas. Jeanette (real name Janette Anne Dimech, born in London in 1951) was a child of the diaspora; her mother was from the Canary Islands and her father from the former Belgian Congo. From her native England the family had moved to the United States, where she would remain until she arrived in Barcelona as a 14-year-old, her tender voice carrying the echoes of Californian folk-rock. Rafael Turia, a radio man and neat interpreter of Donovan songs in Spanish for Discos Belter, introduced them to the Hispavox label. Their official story starts after their meeting with the Madrid record company. Producer Rafael Trabucchelli got involved and that was it. He changed their original name to Pic Nic and chose Jeanette as their vocalist. They recorded their first single, Cállate Niña/Negra Estrella (1967), which sat at number one on the charts for 10 weeks. After their equally-successful second single Amanecer/No Digas Nada (1968), they got working on what would be their only LP. The album possesses a rare pre-adolescent lyricism, and Trabucchellis arrangements and production transforms their folk ballads into something never heard before, or since, in Spain. Besides the Vytas Brenner song "Te Esperaré," the covers of Peter, Paul And Marys "Tiny Sparrow," Janis Ians "Societys Child" and the only track sung in English, bluesman Jesse Fullers "San Francisco Bay Blues," are remarkable and their renditions rival the originals. However, theres no better track than "Cállate Niña" to define the spirit of the album: a lullaby sung by two small girls after the death of the mother of one of them, it overflows with melody despite its simplicity, and its use of triangle, harmonica and a male backing vocal provide an absolutely ghostly quality. Jeanette would start a successful solo career two years later, covering songs written by Manuel Alejandro, José Luis Perales and André Popp. After that, Pic Nic never recorded another record. Includes an insert with liner notes in Spanish and English. Pressed on 180 gram vinyl in a limited edition of 1,000 copies only." -Vinilisssimo

Label: Black Sweat
Country: Italy
Price: $20.00
"Black Sweat Records present a reissue of Amazonia 6891: Sounds From Jungle, Natural Objects, Echo And Electronic Waves, originally released on cassette in 1986. The idea to evoke a deep journey in the Amazon rainforest has affected various musicians in the history of popular and experimental music, but compared to other works, this rare Amazonia 6891, released only on cassette in 1986, appears as totally original and extreme in his conception. Here, the interest in ethnomusicology of the expert Walter Maioli (part of Aktuala and Futuro Antico) is linked to a precise and comprehensive ecological, botanical, ethological and ethnographic perspective. In fact, starting from the sound recording of the ethnographer Pit Piccinellis collection of natural objects, the collected material for this work is re-elaborate in different times by the anthropologist and electronic pioneer Fred Gales and by Maioli himself. The result of this multi-disciplinary approach is a long, concrete poem of plant organisms, field recordings of verses and calls of tropical animals, futuristically mixed with electronic sounds, similar to the great experimental trials of Futuro Antico and Ariel Kalmas 1978 album, Osmose (BS 007LP). Listening to this imaginative collage is like looking into a precious cabinet of antiquities and curiosity, whose wonders of multi-colored cellular fragments are shaped in the synthesis of a single universal sound matter. The merger between the wild jungle, the mysterious voices of the aboriginals and the oscillation of the electronic waves, creates a spasmodic tension between amazing and heavenly moments, leaking obscure paths and alien sequences. Amazonia 6891 is a magic trip into the unknown wild, into abyss of creation of kaleidoscopic floras and faunas, simply a proposal for a synesthetic experience and multi-sensory." - Black Sweat.

Title: Heliograms
Format: LP
Label: Digitalis
Country: USA
Price: $21.00
"In 1982, a small Canadian record label specializing mostly in classical music released Heliograms. This was the first record by Canadian composer and video artist Jean Piché, and it was also one of the first albums to feature music produced almost entirely with digital synthesizers. But, due to an unfortunate turn of events, the label went bankrupt as soon as Heliograms was released, therefore relegating this essential piece of electronic music to obscurity. Jean Piché recorded Heliograms between the years 1977-1980 during his time at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, BC. The music on the LP consists of works for computer, digital synthesis and acoustic instruments, and most of it was composed using the POD Interactive Compositional System that Barry Truax had developed at SFU. The four compositions that make up Heliograms are often dense, harmonically-rich pieces that slowly evolve through time. There is a strong use of tonality throughout which characterizes Pichés work during this period. It echoes a fascination with the music of Terry Riley, Steve Reich, and Lou Harrison, placing it firmly in a minimalist approach to electronic music, alongside the contemporary work of American composer Laurie Spiegel, then working at Bell Labs. The initial sounds that would end up constituting the bulk of "Ange," the first piece on the LP, were created on the Systems Concepts Digital Synthesizer, also known as the Samson Box, during a residency at Stanford University, California, in the CCRMA facilities. The Samson Box was a powerful machine and the first of its kind. It was designed to synthesize complex musical events in real time using FM synthesis. As soon as Piché returned to SFU, he mixed all the tracks in a traditional analog studio and then proceeded to record the voice of Joanna Anonychuk, as well as his own voice, carefully blending these with the sounds generated with the Samson Box. The result is a striking oceanic drone of microtonal frequency waves shifting in and out of focus. Remastered by James Plotkin from the original tapes and cut to vinyl by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin." -Digitalis.

"Picks & Lighters were a Knoxville, TN combo who come to us straight out of 1999. Because of fates vagaries, their time is gone. Everyone missed and ignored the boat they offered us, and we were all left floating, lonely, in a sea of our own shit. Until now. We truly dont understand how this one got by us upon its initial release, but it did. Picks & Lighters even released a beautiful vinyl record to make sure we wax lovers gave them a chance, no dice though. Their cries of creation fell upon deaf ears; for a good while, anyway. Now, here we are in the year 2006, and there is finally enough time of give some love to the Picks & Lighters crew. So heres a re-release -- with proper jewel case packaging -- of their genius S/T CD from 1999. Their music ombines all sorts of parts including (but not exclusive to) Royal Trux, universal Siltbreeze sounds, Rolling Stones feedback loops, American Primitive volk guitar, Boogie Rock, lo fi form-scrumble, etc. It s a motherfuckin shame this went unnoticed in 1999, but maybe now we can right some wrongs, change the world, and float a boat or two. Cause you know what Thurston Howell says ⿿ theres always room for another yacht. Hopefully, well eventually have the wherewithal to issue some of their related material, both that of an archival nature, and that which the remnants of Picks & Lighters now create under the name, Newport.

2016 release. "The first reissue of Picnic, originally released on Data Records in 1985. A little-known gem of Dutch free music, Picnic is the brainchild of cellist Tristan Honsinger, who composed all but one of its 12 compositions. Brilliant and whimsical, the tracks bring to mind Honsingers work with ICP Orchestra, for whom he has also composed extensively. Here hes working in an incredible ensemble, with trumpeter Toshinori Kondo, saxophonist Sean Bergen, Jean Jacques Avenel on bass, Michael Vatcher on drums and percussion, and Tiziana Simona Vigni on voice. Deceptively vicious little songs with hilarious twists and the kind of intense improvising youd expect from a band that incorporates players of this caliber, its a unique album, originally issued on the tiny Data Records, never before reissued. And its worth having alone for the beautiful recording by Datas Dick Lucas, which captures Vatchers incredible high snare on "Restless", a minute of pure energy better than Red Bull, and Vignis oblique vocals, which were sung mostly in English by the Italian singer, who didnt speak a word of the language.

Lead by Jules Lefevre, whose loose approach is perfectly glued by the rhythms of Tim Rowe (Worn Leather, Dead Uncles) and Dan Katz (Spit-Take), Pieces of Fruit will excite fans of the early home-styles of Sebadoh and Guided By Voices, New Zealand classics like The Bats and The Clean, as well as those looking for wondering guitar expansions.

"Pieters & Stapleton are known as the core of the now defunct Dadamah, as well as for new projects like Flies Inside The Sun & Rain. Last Glass is comprised of 6 instrumental improvisations which range from the near-ambient to the red faced and throttling, sometimes covering this range in a single piece. Obvious points of reference are AMM, Musica Elettronica Viva and the Silver Apples, but Pieters/Russell/Stapleton skirt these static reference points like downhill slalom skiers. All the pieces bar one are single takes, without overdubs, but the soundscapes are far from sparse as a result. Built around propulsive percussive rhythms, the other instruments provide plenty of the scrub and woosh youd expect from an outfit with this kind of pedigree.

"Bloody Turkey Sandwiches is another ultra-rarity by British psychedelic folk band Pig Rider; only six copies were originally privately pressed by custom label Deroy Sound Service in 1974.

Some of the tracks bring to mind the more experimental side of The Olivia Tremor Control/Black Swan Network or even They Might Be Giants -- but 20 years before those bands existed. Electric acid folk with stoned homemade atmosphere, lo-fi sound, bizarre and funny lyrics, effects, backward bits, surreal humor, psychedelic skiffle, old-timey music hall parodies, brilliant folk-rock-pop, and titles like "Interdrive Overstella," "Be Glad for the Song Has an Ending," "Pus In Our Time," and "Have You Seen Your Neighbour in the Bath?"

Price: $31.00
"Although nearly 60 people have played in Pig Rider or its various offshoots over the years, there have only been two ever-present members, Colin Kitchener and John Mayes, who founded the band at Sevenoaks School in Kent, England, in the late 60s. They met when they were 12, and not long after began haunting the music rooms at the school to hammer out current three-chord pop songs on pianos. They went through a number of other names (including D Jabferg Flossyakkit and Bob Scratch and His Country and South Eastern Spring Blues Band), before deciding to perform as The Pig Rider Robinson Heterophony. After a failed attempt to build a seven-foot robot bassist called Peregrine Robinson to front the band, the name was abbreviated to its current form. Pig Riders music has been described as "joke folk/mock rock," and although they claim that their minds were only altered by beer, theres a real psychedelic element to it, not to mention their pioneering DIY spirit. They recorded at home with rudimentary equipment, used handmade modified instruments, and self-released a series of acetate-only albums housed in primitive, handmade sleeves. Heterophonies was originally pressed by the custom label Deroy Sound Service in a private edition of five acetates in 1975. The music is an amazing mix of psychedelic electric folk, acid folk, and twisted pop with funny and bizarre lyrics, tape experimentation, effects, and a homemade, stoned atmosphere. Think The Incredible String Band,The Bonzo Dog Band, Syd Barrett, R. Stevie Moore... In 2009, a review of Heterophoniesappeared in the Galactic Ramble book. Richard Falkwrote, "Heavy, lo-fi, electric folk with lots of weird electronic effects and a distinctly psychedelic atmosphere." That review incited French collectorAlexandre Mansuy to track down the band in 2013. "What I was on the point to discover was way beyond my wildest dreams. Heterophonies was only one of their many, many great recordings." Thanks to Mansuy, Guerssen and Sommor present a comprehensive Pig Rider reissue campaign, which began with The Robinson Scratch Theory (GUESS 058CD/145LP), a compilation of their jaw-dropping 80s stuff. The series continues with first-ever reissues of two of their rarest acetates from the 70s: this edition of Heterophonies and a reissue of Bloody Turkey Sandwiches (SOMM 023LP). Both acetates are also available as a combined CD reissue (SOMM 023-24CD). Includes insert with photos and lyrics. Master tape sound. Limited to 300 copies." - Sommor.

Pig Riderwere formed in Kent, UK, in the late 60s by John Mayes and Colin Kitchener. With the help from some friends they recorded and self-released a series of acetate-only psych-folk albums in the mid-70s (Heterophonies, Bloody Turkey Sandwiches...), which are prime examples of early DIY psychedelic music, highly sought-after since a review of Heterophoniesappeared in Richard Morton Jacks Galactic Ramblebook.

Pig Riders sound brings to mind obscure DIY bands like The Desperate Bicycles,Instant Automatons, or Beyond the Implode -- if those bands knew how to write catchy and well-crafted songs. But the most amazing thing is that Pig Rider were creating this kind of music for their own amusement without any knowledge of the post-punk or DIY movement. Although they were listening to bands like the Bonzos, Pink Floyd, and The Misunderstood -- "I played their Children of the Sun 45 until the groove was worn out!" says Kitchener -- Pig Rider claim that the main influence on what they played was the availability of instruments and what they could do with them -- not always what they were designed for -- and always pushing their limits. The Robinson Scratch Theory is presented in master tape sound with an insert/booklet containing detailed liner notes and photos. The compilation is released in advance of first-ever reissues of two of Pig Riders ultra-rare 70s acetates, Bloody Turkey Sandwiches (1974) and Heterophonies (1975).

The Sea Donkeys released an LP on the Sun City Girls Abduction label in 2005. Pigeons formed later that same year when Wednesday and Clark relocated to New York. After releasing a string of micro-run cassettes and lathe-cut vinyls that explored noise and free jazz modes they turned their energies towards writing structured songs. The first widely available release of their song-oriented material was the Virgin Spectacle lp that came out on Black Dirt in 2008. That was followed by a 7" single on Soft Abuse in 2009. Si Faustine is their second album and, like Virgin Spectacle, was recorded at Jason Meaghers Black Dirt Studio.

Title: The Bower
Format: LP
Label: MIE
Country: UK
Price: $22.00
"Theres a house situated amongst the knobby hills of the eastern section of the Hudson Valley in New York. In our new lives, buoyed by satellite perspectives, it is the proverbial needle in a haystack. But for years there have been somewhat secluded and secretive musical goings-on in the room between the domestic area and the over-stuffed garage. Beyond the large, sun-dappled bay windows, more than a generation ago, a man, a pioneer in his field, took his music to the north country and began to move the air inside this room, vibrating the wooden walls, opening those little portals some of us believe allow the magic to seep through, no matter how many years later. Now here we are, in those later years, and a small group of sonic voyagers have roosted in this space once again. Pigeons have arrived at this uncommon structure, The Bower, via oceanic travels around the Pacific Northwest with The Sea Donkeys and early duo explorations with tape machines and tube-sock-mallet percussion and saxophones and a drum machine named Sammy. This record, The Bower, is an explosion of change. They are in the midst of their longest-running lineup, with Wednesday Knudsen and Clark Griffin augmented by Rob Smith on drums and voice, tho this particular configuration is new to anyone save those who have seen the band perform live since their last full-length. They have invited you back into their home after years rooting around the confines of the studio seeking their very particular, and peculiar, forms of clarity. Roles have changed; song structures have more movement, richer textures, greater surprises. For one long weekend in March 2014, about a year after full-time occupation of the house in the woods, the trio, perfectly captured by Mike Fellows manning the board, laid down the songs carved deep in the grooves of this slab, mixed by Jason Meagher at Black Dirt Studio in July 2014. Some know-it-alls will hear a wide breadth of influences; some will research the bands past and compare fleeting words to current sound; others will be confounded, befuddled, and tickled with the possibility of the old new noise pop lullaby prog earthly outer space future sounds of the band. Regardless, this is a new mach, and the blazing arc across the skies outside your window is the remnant of the band moving on to even newer sonic destinations." - MIE.

"Pigeons have shifted into more dense, heady modes for their new record, They Sweetheartstammers. Heavy doses of melody and dissonance dip into Broadcast & Meddle-era Pink Floyd territory, as well as more straightforward nods to Opals Happy Nightmare Baby, Galaxie 500 and Brigitte Fontaine. Pigeons are also now a four piece featuring Jason Meagher (No Neck Blues Band) on bass and Nathan Bowles (Black Twig Pickers, Pelt) on drums." -Soft Abuse

Title: Virgin Spectacle
Format: LP
Label: Black Dirt
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Beautiful dream-dementia pop from a couple tangentially related to the Sea Donkeys/Sublime Frequencies camp in Seattle." -S@1. "Pigeons and doves are so closely related, they are practically interchangeable in the minds of the people who classify such fowl. But in the eyes of the general public, the dove is a beautiful bird symbolizing freedom and peace while the pigeon is a dirty rat with wings that eats our citys garbage and craps on our cars. But maybe the pigeon is a crafty bird, content with its own beauty and happy to obscure it to avoid the glare of our ever intrusive public eye. Virgin Spectacle is a distorted, hungover, and elusive statement. And its in French. Except one word at the end. Or more, if you are to believe those responsible. Regardless, amongst all the fog and feathers is a collection of comely pop and sonic excursions guaranteed to lodge itself in your waking subconscious. Hell, you might even dream of a few of these songs. The fine people who constitute the band named Pigeons would like you to believe that they have stumbled incidentally upon such charm, like a diamond in the mine. Dont believe it. Take yourself out of your particular urban situation. Look toward the skies, and see the besmirched bird for what it really is. They have laid out a sonic journey meant to disorient on the surface, but if you follow their flight youll find yourself cruising along and singing in a language you may not understand. Edition of 500 Recorded at Black Dirt Studio"- Black Dirt. Black Dirt is the new in-house label from Jason Meaghers (NNCK, K Salvatore, Coach Fingers, D Charles Speer and the Helix, etc...)

Artist: PIKACYU-MAKOTO
Title: Galaxilympics
Format: LP
Label: Upset the Rhythm
Country: UK
Price: $22.00
180 gram vinyl. Edition of 500. "Pikacyu-Makoto is an intergalactic love and peace duo, featuring two figureheads of underground Japanese music: Pika from Afrirampo and Makoto Kawabata of legendary psychedelic avatars Acid Mothers Temple. As a duo they embrace both sides of the coin -- drums and guitar, chaos and order, male and female, yin and yang, the angel and the devil. Pika brings her skills of mystifying performance to the table, all free-drum bluster and vocals veering between shrine maiden and wild spirit. Kawabatas guitar-work moves from a roar to a whisper, a yell to a sob, hes working on the same canvas of extremes. The aim of their unity is to write truly celestial hymns for the outer world and odes of love for the inner cosmic context. In 2011, they released their first album Om Sweet Home: We Are Shining Stars From Darkside (REPOSE 027CD, 2011). In 2016, they spent two weeks touring through Europe whilst writing their new album Galaxilympics, suffused with the outreaching sound and message of their impulsive live performances. Galaxilympics is an album of contrasts. "Space Sumo" kicks off the record in explosive style. Pikacyus drums jitter, crash and stumble, but steadfastly refuse to groove. Makoto attacks his guitar, cloaking himself in reverb to produce a wall-of-sound, alternating between melody and noise. "Funifunikonefuni" follows with its frenzied take on pop music, bubbling with energy and Pikas multiple vocal layers. "Ill Forgive" is chant-like in its devotion to following the tumbling melody line of the song even to absurd and unpredictable dimensions. "Pika Mako Hall" is a more serene affair, with whispered echoes and guitar drones swirling amongst bursts of rapid sequencer ambience. "Castle Of Sand" picks up on this more spacious approach with slowly developing programmed electronics, before the title track erupts with gurgling synths, soaring guitar trails, and Pikas most searching vocal yet. The album concludes in reflective manner with the suitably titled "Sayonownara", a song as much in the present as it is in the act of saying farewell. Its positively elegiac with washes of cymbal and deep acres of guitar drone for the first five minutes before Pikas drums take things up a gear and into more psychedelic out-rock terrain. Galaxilympics is a triumph of opposites united. Its also a portal into the world of two musicians who find peace and semblance through their interaction." - Upset The Rhythm.

"The Eagle Has Strayed in this 48-minute opus of lunar musique concrete right out of the late 1960s in Hastings, New Zealand.

Pilchers periperal figure hangs ghostlike out on the edge of the front cover next to a poster of The Beatles HELP! semaphore (theyre not even spelling HELP by the way), Its a revealing allusion to the radically warped jams that were already taking place Out Here, a preamble for the winding genealogy of the countrys later musical lab tests.

Label: 8mm
Country: Italy
Price: $25.00
"Recorded between Bologna and Providence, Last days is just Pilia and his nude guitar. Five new pieces that will bring you up to the sky in a climax of infinite grace and beauty. If you followed his previous works, you already know that Stefano is a rare voice, within his fingers, improvisation and composition meet each other in perfect harmony. This new LP offers some of the most emotionally intense guitar music we have listened to, to date. Last Days is in fact apart from Stefanos previous efforts for a series of reasons. Each song is an adventure into a different style, combing elements of noise, rock, folk and drone as part of the same sound painting. But the main focus here is that his sound on vinyl comes out revealed: naked, rough, and primitive as we commented listening together to this record. This music comes from the heart, doesnt need any overdubbs. 140 grams vynil, edition of 110 numbered copies. Silkscreened." -8mm

Ultra thick gatefold, comes with cut-out mask, extensive liner notes and poster. -Feeding Tube "This album represents a bona fide artefact exhumed from the age, and imbued with the spirit, of hypnagogia.

Price: $16.00
"A reissue of New Zealand post-punk band, THE PIN GROUPs complete discography. "THE PIN GROUPs short career was the perfect escape act-they produced a small but peerless body of work in adverse circumstances and in almost complete obscurity, and then evaporated before anyone could get a hook into them. A doubly impressive trick, when you consider that they also made the first record for Flying Nun, a label that was to define underground rock music for an entire generation... A big part of their mysterious appeal-apart from their unparalleled understanding of the ultimate drone-rock magic trick of how to hold one chord just too long-was their masterly visual presentation. From that first blackest-ever single it was apparent that not only were they New Zealands ultimate VU-inspired band (a palm for which moreover the competition was unspeakably intense in those days)-but they even had their own Warhol, in the person of RONNIE VAN HOUT. For that first delirious year he was a one-man design tsunami for Flying Nun, but it was his covers and posters for The Pin Group that represented his most perfectly-realized total artwork. A big part of my wanting to see Flying Nun get off the ground again in a new century was to get the chance to re-marry the sonics of The Pin Group with Ronnies silver Factory visual vibe of Brillo boxes and black helicopters. And this is it: a legend that defies time. Now you too have the chance to experience The Pin Groups irresistible blend of the puritanical with the libidinal-wrapped in a point-perfect distillation of proto-hipster psychedelic reference-points from the dawn of post-modernity."-Bruce Russell, September 2011.Vinyl includes a bonus CD with a previously unreleased live material, plus download coupon with both recordings." -Flying Nun.

"Deluxe vinyl version of Keio Line (the same content also to be issued on double CD by Cuneiform); the complete recording of an incredible collaboration that sweeps across the generations of electronic music. Richard Pinhas is internationally recognized as one of Frances major experimental musicians: the "father" of French electronic music. He was the founder of seminal space-rock band Heldon, a band whose violent fusion of electronics and guitar in the 70s rivalled the German electronic school. As a guitar player, he has been compared to Robert Fripp. Cited as an influence by many electronic musicians, Pinhas has helped to define the space music genre. Since founding Heldon in 1974, Pinhas has released over 15 albums, had involvement in dozens more and shaped the way we listen to music today. Masami Akita aka Merzbow is the forerunner of Japanese electronic music, and for the last 20 years plus, has been at the top of his game ploughing more and more extreme sonic territories. This release, recorded in Tokyo in October 2007, will surprise a lot of people in its sheer beauty. This is a collaboration that works in the true sense of the word, with each artist complimenting the other over six long, sprawling tracks, each occupying the whole of each side.

After antagonizing the crowd for five minutes or so, the purposefully bad set was abruptly ended by a 300-pound bouncer, who proceeded to toss them out of the door. Nobody, including the label-heads in New York who beg to release The Pink Noises music, has heard from them since. Luckily the Alpha record was finished before this fiasco. It is the work of sinister pop scientists running on all cylinders, cramming multiple organs into a single cadaver only to reveal a skeleton for each song. Mixing influences from across the pond (theyd fit in with late-70s Manchester) and across the continent (Northern Cali pioneers such as Chrome and Minimal Man come to mind) with a primitive aura rarely adopted to this style, Alpha gets high scores in every category, its urgency and immediacy unparalleled in the land of limp keyboard amateurs.

Originally the solo-project of Toronto-native MARK SAUNER, The Pink Noise first established itself with a series of highly regarded albums on Sacred Bones, Kill Shaman, Night People, Almost Ready, and Pleasence Records. Now based in Montreal, The Pink Noise operates as a full band, with a sound that re-imagines the impulses that characterized the earlier work through more structured songwriting, higher fidelity, and lyrical clarity. While still rooted in the retro-futurism of Sauners previous albums, Greedy Heart expands the vision by adding the cold wave synthesizer of Electric Voice Records MATT SAMWAYS, the abstract guitar of GRAEME LANGDON, and the Crass-like drumming of PORN PERSONS and INTERNATIONAL LOVE TRIANGLEs TARA DESMOND. With its mix of psychedelic colourful effects, gritty guitar, and booming drums, the result is an album full of dynamic tension that conjures the bands equal interest in glam rock, post-punk, and new wave while at the same time embodying a newness beyond its allusions to classics like Television, Soft Cell, The Fall, or Roxy Music. Limited edition of 300 copies." -Skrot Up.

Format: CD

Price: $12.50
"PINK REASON is always KEVIN DEBROUX and practically never anyone else. The self-released Pink Reason debut seven-inch from 2006 was an itch of such beguiling psychic ache that all the inhabitants of Siltbreeze Island scratched it until they bled. On this first full length, the resident of Green Bay, Wisconsin, continues to ooze muzzy melancholia by the bucket, ably and formidably clearing house in Sanguine Manor, whose previous tenants include Royal Trux, The Jacobites, Phantom Payne, Black Vial, and other marginal inhabitants whose sticky fingers glimmer in stoned adulation. Dominated by creeping synths, stark strums and rickety percussive splats that complement De Brouxs heartscraping vocal catharsis, Cleaning The Mirror journeys far beyond any known perspective, practically insinuating an alternate otherworld where Tim Buckleys Lorca and Jandeks Ready For The House have been hybridized into a ripe-for-plucking masterpiece. Or, shunning hyperbole in favor of acronym, Pink Reasons modern day DIY is very FYI that you should check out PDQ. Touring throughout 2007." - Siltbreeze.

"Pink Reason is back with a raging slab of dark, desperate hardcore. The introduction of a full band lineup and studio recording makes this the first record of its kind by Pink Reason and the bands first new record in over a year. Expanding upon territory first covered on their "Borrowed Time" single (Fashionable Idiots), the band has unleashed their most aggressive release to date with a sound reminiscent of early Husker Du, The Wipers and perhaps a hint of Totalitar. The B-side features a cover of "Your Girlfriend" by Columbus legends V3." - Almost Ready.

Title: Shit In The Garden
Format: LP
Label: Siltbreeze
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"In the four years since Siltbreeze released Pink Reasons Cleaning the Mirror, Kevin DeBrouxs subsequent singles and EPs have been concise, individual statements, together charting an atlas of depression and the struggles with a darkness that threaten to swallow him up every day. Compressed into Debrouxs five- and six-minute songs are weeks, months and years of labor and experience, not the least of which are his travels to places where he catalyzed and received underground energies—from Wisconsin and Ohio, through Melbourne and Santiago de Chile, to New York City. Try to map out how these songs are put together, and one finds that the apparent simplicity of DeBrouxs riffs and chord progressions gives way to an epic complexity. Now that the dust is settling and the commercial concerns of a thousand “lo-fi” projects have vacated the underground for a better life in the dorm rooms of America, the influence of Cleaning the Mirror on the past half-decade is clear. And DeBroux is still here, using cheap technology, creating rich, enveloping psychological environments, giving voice to a restless inner life—manifesting drum-and-bass beats, hardcore dissonance, Ian MacCullochs larynx—and blooming like sunflowers amid the debris." - Siltbreeze.

"During a show with hardcore punks Hatefuck, DeBroux and company traveled to Winona, Minnesota. After a five-hour drive to the town, wasted locals, angry punks and gnarled three-legged dogs greeted them by leading them into a commandeered park. Inside the park, DeBroux found "the ultimate punk rock experience" with townies huffing rubber glue and mohawk-brandishing kids starting fights with crusties. The show ended and the locals gave the band three dollars for their troubles. A few kids asked DeBroux and company to chip in the three dollars on a keg. Soon, the crowd dispersed and left the band with no money or place to stay. The band wound up sleeping on an island between Minnesota and Wisconsin and breaking up soon thereafter. He wrote the first Pink Reason song, "Winona," about this experience." - Steve Kobak from Blastitude #25. Second press on red vinyl.

"What a perfect split! Two bands compliment each other so well doing each others songs.  Not so much covers as a different perspective on the exact same emotions. The line quickly blurs between these bands as two separate entities, as they grab onto the others words and make them their own. The fact that the warmest moments on this record come in repeated refrains of "Down On Me", should give you some perspective." -Floridas Dying

"Named after San Francisco Chronicles pink-hued arts and entertainment guide, Pink Section coalesced at SF Art Institute and performed their first show at the legendary Deaf Club on Valentines Day, 1979. These self-taught musicians existed on the fringe (even in the local underground scene), producing an unusual brand of off-kilter post-punk against a backdrop of Dadaist aesthetics. The group itself was strangely symmetrical: singer Judy Gittelsohn and drummer Carol Detweiler (both members of Inflatable Boy Clams), singer/guitarist Matt Heckert (Survival Research Laboratories) and bassist Stephen Wymore. While the hallucinatory layers of male/female vocals on "Shopping" conjure images of deranged domesticity and 50s Americana gone haywire, the fractured riffs of "Midsummer New York" deconstruct Yoko Onos original even further, stripping bare Pink Sections fondness for angular rhythms and out-of-control oscillations. This first-time retrospective LP collects the bands rare 1979 single, the self-titled EP, unreleased demos, and live material. Recommended for fans of Suburban Lawns, Units, and DEVO." - Superior Viaduct.
