Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Sommor
Country: Spain
Price: $27.00
"S to S is one of those obscurities that have remained unknown to collectors of hard rock for many years. Sommor Records presents the first ever reissue with the bands story told for the first time. S to S emerged out of the ashes of the band Etna, featuring the Cannella brothers: Fulvio on lead guitar and Mirco on bass along with George Abry on drums. After the demise of Etna, the Cannella brothers decided to form a power-trio: S to S was born. Upon meeting producer Michel Dickenscheid, they were offered a deal: the band would help Michel to build a new recording studio in exchange of free studio time with the intention of recording their first album, which would be produced by Michel. So they built a state-of-the art studio with their own hands and soon after recorded S to S. Mirco switched from bass to guitar so they recruited a new bass player, Picci Salvatore, who abandoned the band just after the recording sessions. A friend of the band played occasional keyboards and Michel, the producer, played sax on "Im Fool", the most psychedelic sounding song of the album, similar to early Hawkwind. The rest of the songs are prime examples of pure hard rock featuring layers of fuzzed-out guitars and killer riffs by Fulvio, a monstrous sound created by producer Michel using primitive homemade pedal effects and up to four guitar overdubs. The album was completed in early 1977 but remained on the shelf until the following year. The band members were very pissed off when they received the albums from the pressing plant and discovered that their manager had included a logo with Sig runes lettering in the cover without consulting them. Only 300 copies were pressed on their own Overcome label. Remastered sound. Insert with detailed liner notes by Pascal DHooghe and rare photos. Highly recommended to anyone into Raw Power era Stooges, Back in the USA era MC5, Pink Fairies, early Motörhead, Hawkwind." - Sommor.

Band bio: "Around 1980 Menko Konings (eM. / No Honey From These / Top Tape) started the legendary Amsterdam underground formation S.M. Nurse, first together with Jos Jak and later also with Anneke Stempher. S.M. Nurse experimented with collage-like music and were inspired by N.Y.-ultra, disco e.g. The band mainly performed in the Amsterdam ultra-circuit, such as Oktopus on the Keizersgracht and D-Day in Paradiso. They also performed at clubs and discotheques such as Mazzo on the Rozengracht and the transgender nightclub Madame Arthur in the Warmoesstraat. Pretty soon, S.M. Nurse was noticed by radio programme maker Richard Zeilstra from the Dutch broadcaster the VPRO and they were played regularly on radio programmes such as RadioNome and Spleen. They performed live on radio in the villa of the VPRO in Hilversum. They also contributed to the theme cassette Turkish Delight of van Kaye & Ignits tapes and record label Ding Dong. Among releases were a live registration on a bootleg cassette, at the time available at Staalplaat, and a cassette of S.M. Nurse on the independent label Top Tape. At the end of 1983, S.M. Nurse split up. Anneke Stempher and Jos Jak recorded a cassette for TopTape under the name Incredible Coop. Menko Konings continued solo under the name eM. He also started the formation No Honey from These with Robby Horsfall. Top Tape released several cassettes and CDs from eM. as well as No Honey From These."

Label: Vinyl-On-Demand
Country: Germany
Price: $244.00
"Limited edition of 400. SPK was an Australian industrial band formed in 1978 in Sydney by Graeme Revell and Neil Hill. By 1983 the duo had been joined by other artists including Sinan Leong, Brian Williams (Lustmord), John Murphy, Karel van Bergen, Mike Wilkins, and James Pinker. During its early period from 1978 to first half of 1983, SPK was without a doubt a groundbreaking protagonist for the whole industrial music movement to come, with such releases as Information Overload Unit and Leichenschrei. SPK can be considered as influential as other industrial legends including Throbbing Gristle, Clock DVA, and Cabaret Voltaire -- there is no way to avoid this band when talking about the industrial movement. This deluxe box set, containing seven LPs and one 7" in a deluxe book-like folder and outer holder, collects all of SPKs early works and documents the bands history prior to Graeme Revell signing with WEA and taking a slightly different, more commercial path with the bands musical output. Includes the following LPs: Information Overload Unit (1980), The 7" Tracks (1979-1981), Leichnschrei (1982), Backing-Tracks for Leichenschrei (1982), Other Studio and Compilation-Tracks (1982-1983), London Heaven 31.10.1982 (Mixing Desk Master)/Tracks from London Electric Ballroom 26.April 1983 (Audience Copy), and Backing-Tracks for Electric Ballroom and Brixton Ace Show, plus a bonus 7". The performances at the Electric Ballroom and the Brixton Ace were the only SPK performances to feature these backing tracks. With the exception of "In the Dying Moments," none of the material from this period was ever recorded in the studio." - Vinyl On Demand.

Title: In Harmony
Format: LP
Label: Subliminal Sounds
Country: Sweden
Price: $30.00
"This brand new and heavily mind-bending album is the second volume in a suite of two separate albums marking the return of the mysterious and legendary Swedish psychedelic multi-instrumentalist S.T. Mikael. Mikael spearheaded the DIY psychedelic rock/folk movement of the late 1980s/mid-90s, and he returned in early 2008, after an 11 year silence, to record some music with some friends for Subliminal Sounds. In Harmony is the natural conclusion to the recordings S.T. Mikael made with Dungens Fredrik Bjorling and Reine Fiske, which were introduced with the album Mind of Fire. Signaled from the outset with the opening track "Mother Is Calling," In Harmony is dedicated to our arch mother, Nature, and all the treasures and mysteries it contains. On his 15-minute epos, "Higher," Mikael performs as a one-man-band, offering insight into the blissful happiness he has received from that which springs from -- and grows -- in nature. As our world continues to change faster than ever, S.T. Mikaels melodic folk-rock and spiritual psychedelia tells us of the importance of partaking in the psychedelic communion and listening to each other -- before its too late. Get ready for more visions of winged creatures galloping across a thunderous and cloud-swirled sky and another glimpse into your inner minds eye. Limited edition of 500 copies on vinyl only." -Subliminal Sounds.

"LP version. Limited edition of 500 copies only. After an 11 year silence, heres a new album by the mysterious and legendary Swedish psychedelic multi-instrumentalist, S.T. Mikael. This is part one of a suite of two separate albums. Mikael spearheaded the DIY psychedelic rock/folk movement of the late 1980s/mid-90s, with a collection of albums that now fetch up and over $1000 on eBay. During his long absence, S.T. Mikael grew more secretive and reclusive, but all the while he was still writing music. Now that hes finally back, heres a chance at last for the world to join his psychedelic world again. The music, stretching out in many different directions, has been done freely and spontaneously in an extremely relaxed and happy environment. He also joins forces with Dungens Reine Fiske and Fredrik Björling, whose musical expertise now also grace the grooves. These otherworldly acid tripper recordings now exist in the real world and S.T. Mikael proves, once again, to be a gifted songwriter and an unconventional performer with a very personal ear for acoustics and an emotional honesty seldom seen these days. Melodic folk-rock elements flow with waves of heavy fuzz-phase leads; weird, detached, haunted vocals echo over the band and the whole thing seems to teeter on the brink of psychedelic oblivion. This is not psychedelic revival, but the psychedelic NOW. His soaring vocals, surreal lyrics, fragile, folky melodies, heavy fuzz riffs, mind-bending soul funk and penchant for the spiritual and mystical make this a fascinating voyage that is so mind-twisting, soul-swirling, upper psychedelic that your third eye takes you on a joyride through an altered state! This album makes your brain start thinking in those pebble-splash-pond-mind circular expanding waveforms that reveal the password to tomorrow. The CD also contains 9 previously-unreleased vintage recordings and unique spoken introductions by Mikael." -Subliminal Sounds.

Title: Am Rhein
Format: CD
Label: Ata Tak
Country: Germany
Price: $17.00
"As a sequel to Wieleicht this is -- in the original words of D.Diedrichsen -- the fabulous White Album of Germanys underground rock in German. S.Y.P.H.s second offering on the the Ata Tak label and S.Y.P.H.s last album in more or less its original formation with Harry Rag (vox), Uwe Jahnke (guitar also with Fehlfarben and Toon), Jojo Wolter (bass) and Ralf Bauerfeind instead of Ulli Putsch on drums. In conspiracy with the groups Mittagspause and Fehlfarben S.Y.P.H. projected Germany onto a punk and Neue Deutsche Welle (German New Wave) plane which other groups later dissected and commercialised. S.Y.P.H. is primordial punk, Dada in its best sense as well as Trance-Rock which no weed can beat. Like no other band from the legendary early 80s scene in Düsseldorf, S.Y.P.H. -- (Smashed Yankee Pummels Homo or Save Your Pretty Hearts) -- assimilated influences from Can, the Kinks to Pere Ubu with unrivalled originality and anarchism. S.Y.P.H.s Am Rhein moves playfully in the groove. The long trek from Industriemädchen(Industrial Girl) in the late 70s to Picknick im Grünen (Picknick in the Green) is artfully dealt with. S.Y.P.H. 87 no longer stands out there alone and colossal, but for magicians meandering through 1000 ideas, building bridges from island to island, emptying out the pop marshlands sludge and enabling the essentials to come into view. And somewhere between a psycho pop odyssey and nursery rhymes, their music comes over as completely uncramped -- an aural rural sculpture. The music is a concoction of rock, film, literature and experimental -- its all there. And yet there is a concept to all this -- a critical standpoint to what officially and what unofficially exists or happens. The groups ingenuity lies in their skill to come out with the absurd without the intellectual need to make sense where it doesnt exist, with a result that the only meaningful element is what remains in the music itself." - Ata Tak

Title: Gorp (A Hommage to Van der Graaf Generator)
Format: LP
Label: Mas De Cade
Country: Germany
Price: $22.00
"The last thing I expect to come from Germany is a group covering songs of Van Der Graaf Generator. And to be honest, I didnt expect an album of VDGG-covers at all. This music is so highly individual and idiosyncra- tic, that it is almost impossible to reinterpret these works. Just like in the case of Beefheart, Popol Vuh, etc. On the other hand, why not? Why ex- clude the possibility of successfully reworking highly idiosyncratic mate- rial. It all depends on the creative powers of artists. Van Der Graaf Generator is still around as I discovered All that Before and Drop Dead come from their 2008 album Trisector. The job is done by S/T, a trio from Frankfurt, Germany, founded in 1993 by Martin Bauner and Joachim Ga- ertner, who present with Gorp their homage to this english progrock group. The musical careers of both men go back to the end of the 70s and that is about all I can trace about their earlier whereabouts. They are declared fans of Faust and Amon Duul 2, but also Pere Ubu, Cravats (re- member?), and many other groups inspire them. Since 1997 they re- leased several records. Gorp however is the first one meeting my ears. We hear Martin Brauner on guitar and vocals, Joachim Gaertner on organ and machines. Special guest Daniel Krieger is the drummer. The voice of Peter Hammill is of course not to be imitated. But they tackled this problem very cleverly. The voice is Bauner is manipulated, making it sound a bit distorted but penetrating, and it it not mixed on the forefront, so that making a comparison comes not to your mind. With guitars, key- boards and drums they create a full and massive sound of hybrid pro- grock. What I can say is that S/T deliver a very well executed album, with stripped down and a bit simplified arrangements and performance. The way they did it surely works." -Vital Weekly.

Artist: SABBATH ASSEMBLY
Title: Restored To One
Format: LP
Label: Ajna
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Restored to One is a modern response by JEX TOTH of WOODEN WAND & THE VANISHING VOICE, DAVE NUSS of NO-NECK BLUES BAND, and SUNN O)))/EARTH/BORIS producer RANDALL DUNN to the musical activities of a cult known as The Process Church of the Final Judgment, who used music to spread their visions of Gnostic reconciliation in a time of cataclysmic change. SABBATH ASSEMBLY has recharged the original hymns of The Process Church and worked them into moving renditions that unite the trinity of rock, psychedelic and gospel into one triumphant re-awakening. The Process Church was an intensely creative, apocalyptic shadow side to the flower-powered 60s and New Age 70s. The influential group opened chapters in London, Europe and across the United States. Dressing in black cloaks and walking the streets with German Shepherds, they created their own intricately designed magazines, and promoted a controversial, quasi-Gnostic theology that reconciled Christ and Satan through deeper awareness and love. Funkadelic reproduced Process writings in two of its albums. The Process Church was accused of being part of a Satanic underground conspiracy by true crime pulps, most notably Ed Sanders The Family, which linked the Church to the Manson murders. The recording follows on the heels of live shows across the US in the Fall of 2009, at which Sabbath Assembly performed previously unrecorded original hymns of the Church. More live events are planned, along with a documentary on the Process Church by William Morris of Skinny Puppy, a video for a song from the coming release, standard CD and LP releases and an archival LP box set (including readings of Process sacred literature by Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, Adam Parfrey, and Lydia Lunch, as well as Love Sex Fear Death author Timothy Wyllie), and an off-Broadway theater extravaganza entitled Gaming the Gods based on the rise and fall of the Church." -Ajna

Title: Ye Are Gods
Format: LP
Label: Ajna Offensive
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Reaching beyond the scope of Restored to One, Ye Are Gods incorporates the ritual text and structure of the Process Church of the Final Judgments highest and holiest mass, the Sabbath Assembly liturgy (after which the band is named). In these hymns of the religious movement that emerged in the late 60s as an apocalyptic shadow-side to flower power and New Age, SABBATH ASSEMBLY guides this mysterious Gnostic journey of the unification of Christ and Satan; the bliss of total submission to the gods Jehovah, Lucifer, Satan, and Christ; the wilds of the Apocalypse and a face-to-face encounter with the Angel of Death; and finally the moment of spiritual renewal in which the Processs Law of the Universe is revealed. Joining vocalist JAMIE MYERS (HAMMERS OF MISFORTUNE, WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM) and drummer DAVE NUSS are GENESIS P-ORRIDGE serving the role of High Priest(ess), aka "Sacrifist"; EYVIND KANG on viola for the liturgical "Declaration of the Gods"; on a chilling rendition of the hymn "We Give Our Lives," guitarist/vocalist IMAAD WASIF; and TIMOTHY WYLLIE, an original Process Church member, providing a homily from Process Church founder Robert DeGrimstons Gods on War. Includes 20-page book." -Ajna Offensive.

Artist: SABBATICAL
Title: Sundown
Format: LP
Label: Love All Day
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
“Recorded over a six year period, Sabbaticals Sundown germinated in the cracks that separate the disparate moments of a life, and found its rhythms nursed in the openings that emerged between other projects. In those spaces – periods of exception from the flow, journeys, downtime, lacunae – Sundown waited for its creator, gathering energy, until it grew to become the centre point around which Sabbaticals other activities would begin to orbit.
A sabbatical is itself a lacuna. It is the time that is set aside. And our sabbaticals, our downtimes, long or short, are both temporal and spatial – they are often characterised by journeys, or the lack of them. We take breaks and make moves, or we stay put and cease constant movement: sacred time always demands sacred spaces, spaces within which normal rules are temporarily repealed, reversed, or augmented. Music is the magic prism that fixes such fragments of time in suspension and holds them, crystalline, up to the light so that they can be felt and understood again. And its focus can be precise: within the mirrored interior of a song, music can preserve also the locations through which time passes, or which might themselves be said to have passed through the slivers of time that music holds.
And so Sundown recalls not only traces of the time in which it developed, but also the places through which this time was poured. Sabbaticals palette seeks not to evoke but to recover and hold the glittering light on journeys to ice-fringed points north, to arrest in analogue the frequencies of evening light, to capture as reverie the marchlands where time is spent in space in such a way that their interrelationship becomes blurred (for is not a journeys length typically measured in time and distance at once?). The earth moves around the sun – by this spatial relation we find a temporal measure – but we apprehend it perceptually as the movement of the sun around the earth, and the effort of adjusting what we perceive to what we know is similar in kind to recognising that what we had felt peripheral has secretly become the centre of our efforts. As flowers turn their faces toward the sun, so we turn toward the work that draws us, and at sundown we close our books and take our daily sabbatical of sleep.” – Francis Gooding.

Artist: SABOTEN
Title: FLOOR et SATiE
Format: Double LP
Label: EM
Country: Japan
Price: $29.00
"Formed in 1981 in Tokyo, Saboten must now be considered one of the great lost post-punk bands. Rejecting the traditional rock group hierarchy of lead guitar and/or preening vocalist supported by a rhythm section, Saboten were true masters of band-as-unit, with the trio meshing and melding in a non-grandstanding manner that wonderfully emphasizes their individual contributions to the group sound. One of the original impulses that led to the formation of the group was a desire to hear the results of an electric rock combo playing Erik Satie, and the French composers sense of whimsy and feeling of openness are well-represented. There are even a number of Satie "covers" here, but far from being pastel homage, they are imaginative reconstructions, aided by the lateLol Coxhill on several pieces. The band, despite the Satie influence, are most definitely a rock unit of the post-punk variety, masters of a tight, brittle funk and a supple sense of propulsion and interlocking instrumentation that will appeal to fans of groups likeThe Slits, The Raincoats and even ESG, but with a unique element that is all their own. FLOOR et SATiE is available on vinyl only, and provides an excellent overview of an excellent band. Disc one is a newly re-mastered version of their first album, Saboten, which was originally produced by the late great Eiichi Tsutaki of Totsuzen Danball and issued as the first release of Tsutakis own label Floor Records in 1982. Disc two ranges from the charmingly lo-fi Satie pieces, to some selections from a D.I.Y. self-released 7", two songs from their second album Awake, and a piece produced by Fred Frith. Saboten means "cactus" and, like their namesake, they are spiky and yet oddly beautiful." - EM

"One of the very few female composer of early electronic music, Franca Sacchi studied at the famous RAI Studio of Fonologia in Milan in the 60s, and developed the En-static principle which included improvisation, electronic music, ritual, performance, teaching and meditation. Extremely reserved and enigmatic, Franca Sacchi has devoted her entire life to music, dance and yoga; she has been active as a conceptual artist too, and her work was also included in the notorious Broken Music exhibition. Throughout the years, she has carried on a complex multi-disciplinary research in a quest for the integration of music with other artistic expressions while at the same time radically questioning the concept of music making. Her electronic music focuses mainly on sound, which is treated as raw material and endlessly explored. Sacchis free concept of duration and deep emotional feel brings her closer to Eliane Radigue and La Monte Young, especially for the long and sustained tones which are suddenly turned into pulsations and gritty sound textures. This LP record presents her first attempts in the field of electronic and concrete music, from the late 60 to 1972." - Die Schachtel. An incredible production, as always, from this label.

Throughout the years, she has carried on a complex multi-disciplinary research in a quest for the integration of music with other artistic expressions while at the same time radically questioning the concept of music making. Her electronic music focuses mainly on sound, which is treated as raw material and endlessly explored. Sacchis free concept of duration and deep emotional feel brings her closer to Eliane Radigue and La Monte Young, especially for the long and sustained tones which are suddenly turned into pulsations and gritty sound textures. This LP record presents her first attempts in the field of electronic and concrete music, from the late 60s to 1972." - Die Schachtel.

Title: Mutation For A Continuity

Price: $76.00
"Very few are aware of the beginning of Maurizio Bianchis adventures? Before starting the complex and compelling production of many records and tapes in the early eighties under the M.B. trademark, Maurizio Bianchi was documenting the new music scene writing essays and reviews for independent magazines. It was August 1979 in Milan, Italy and his sound was strengthening when he felt the time had come to prove his desire for something new. So he started his first solo project, under the name Sacher-pelz. He assembled a concrete equipment -- the endurance of M.B. had started. During the following few months four C60 magnetic tapes were created Cainus (August/September 1979), Venus (October/November 1979), Cease to Exist (December 1979/January 1980) and Velours (February/March 1980), a couple of copies for friends, never getting an official distribution. Surely a very private moment but still the first and only production at that time in Italy to go beyond the TG movement, the direct reference. EesT records got into possession of the original masters and decided this was the right moment to let those obscure sonorities see the night light. The tapes were remastered for a more powerful digital sound featured in this four CD boxset including the original graphics and liner notes as well as a new visionary essay, written expressly for this edition. After a long research in the archives spread around the Italian territories a few more documents were found (the original presentation text titled Sacher-pelz: mutation for a continuity, a collage titled Pure art for crime people, more graphics and reviews) and they are also included here. Edition of 480 copies." - Eest.

First track features Reiko.A of former Merzbow fame and travels through a thick, hazy fog of shimmering wordless vocals before collapsing face down in a pool of electronic voodoo damage.

Born of a correspondence between two fellows entrenched in parallel explorations of the unknowable and imagined, theres a mystery to the source of the sounds contained in these grooves; a mystery that reaches the top of chain, as the players involved have never met, did not discuss individual process, nor the direction of their collaborative endeavors. There is not even a record of the machines used to create this shadowy sci-fi landscape. What the listener is presented with is music that reverberates like synthetic sound made into organic instruments imitating synthetic sound. It is a fantasy world that feels a little bit too much like a version of reality with dark bags under its eyes and strange stains on its clothing. Its the music you hear after the anesthesia drip gets turned on, right before you succumb to that infernal waking sleep. Theres a clarity to the recording, a depth of field that seems normal, but with a bit more scrutiny, is unsettling and disorienting. Theres a narrative, almost cinematic or like a soundtrack to an Evanson story, but like any pinnacle of modern horror, once you catch ahold of that thread, your brain begs you to let go. The music is devoid of terroir, a fantastic blend of east and west, modern and classical, lending once again to the creeping sensation that the rabbit hole is way up there, far, far from where youve landed." - Jason Meagher.

Title: Mikko
Format: LP
Label: Bamboo
Country: UK
Price: $23.00
"Truly a Japanese psychedelic female acid-folk masterpiece. Released on July 25th, 1976, Mikkô was Sai Yoshikos second album, a wonderful acid-folk album on which she gets assisted by a string of big name musicians such as Kuni Kawauchi (of the Happenings Four, amongst others) to arrange the songs. Mikkô features Sais original songs, making it her first real complete album. At times the disc draws in Middle Eastern influences (sitar and tabla), but once she gets to singing, the listener is lulled into her own private, mysterious sonic world, through which one gets sucked in by her wide-ranging vocalizations. At the time of this recording, Sai Yoshiko was merely 23 years-old. Totally obscure, much in-demand by Japanese psych heads, and rather hard to track down. One of Sai Yoshikos biggest fans is Jojo Hiroshige from Hijokaidan and Alchemy Records, who eventually, 25 years after she recorded this stunning album, dove in the studio with her for the Crimson Voyage CD on which she merely attributed some sighs and moans. This album is really a stunner and a must for people into some more advanced Japanese underground historical recordings. Digitally remastered and available on 180 gram vinyl for the first time. Comes with an English translation of the original Japanese LP insert." - Bamboo.

"LP edition of Rizan Saids King of Keyboard, originally released as a CD by Beirut-based Annihaya Records in 2015 (END 011CD). Reissued by Discrepant in collaboration with Annihaya. There is no other Syrian dabke musician that has enjoyed the local, regional, national, and international recognition that Rizan Said has, and for that, the world is lucky. Rizan is a musical ambassador from a disappeared Syria, and this is not to be taken lightly. Once upon a time, not too long ago, Syria was a culturally diverse country possessing a certain unity. A place not synonymous with barbarism and savagery. Far from the capital of Damascus, the northeast of the country, known as the Jazeera, was rich with history and culture. Rizan was a musical prodigy from a young age -- a gifted player of percussion and reed instruments before a wealth of synthesizers began flooding Syria in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Steadfast on the Syrian cassette album circuit at the time, Rizan the boy wonder was already sending his signals out from the Jazeera frontier, thanks to a partnership with local producer Zuhir Maksi. It can be said, that without Rizan Said, a good number of Syrian singers from the 1990s onward might never have been heard -- most notably Omar Souleyman, a collaborator with Rizan for two decades. Where synthesizers can bring a certain artifice and death to the sound of music, Rizans torrential speed and flair on the keys bring new life to Syrian and Kurdish sounds -- lightning fast as required -- respectfully forcing the component sounds of folkloric dabke into the next level. This is the updated sound of the ages, where hand drums and reed flutes are now emulated and pounded out on Korg keyboards --Mark Gergis, April, 2015. RIYL Omar Souleyman, EEK." -

Price: $20.00
"Odisea is a retrospective showcase of solo work from Spanish electronic music pioneer Suso Sáiz. Having been at the forefront of Spains experimental music scene since the late 1970s, multi-instrumentalist Suso Sáiz formed the pivotal group Orquesta de las Nubes and studio project Música Esporádica, releasing a string of albums on Madrids now cult label Grabaciones Accidentales, which was also home to groups such as Finis Africae, Mecánica Popular, and Ishinohana. A prolific producer, he has recorded with Spains most singular popular musicians as well as with a number of luminary electronic and world music artists such as Steve Roach, Jorge Reyes, and Salif Keita. Odisea draws material from Susos early solo works, including music from the rare cassette-only Confidencias as well as pieces from his more recent compositions, soundtrack works and previously unreleased tracks. An artist dedicated to experimentation, Susos sparse compositions manifest a solitary and stripped back approach to making music. Fascinated by the possibilities of new technology he experimented with guitar loops, synthesizers, and drum computers creating a unique form of musical hypnotism absorbed by avant-garde/minimalist and non-Western musical influences. The most representative figure of Spains now cult experimental scene, Suso Sáiz remains an exploratory musician in a musical universe that knows no boundaries." - Music From Memory.

After serving in the army during WWII, Nanao developed a deep distrust for Japanese militarism and dropped out of society, living under bridges and wandering around the country. He gathered a group of like minded young people around him, who called themselves the Bum Academy and whose philosophy had much in common with the hippie movement. His poetry concerns a love of nature, a distrust of industrial culture and technological optimism and environmental issues. Like Basho meets Thoreau.

Country: France
Price: $35.00
"Rediscover in its vinyl release for the very first time the original soundtrack of the cult movie series in 6 parts played by the Baby Carts and produced by Kenji Misumi after the adaptation of famous manga entitled Lone Wolf & Cub, created by writer Kazuo Koike and artist Goseki Kojima. In medieval 17th century Japan, during the Edo period, Ogami Ittō, the implacable and stoic Shōguns executioner, played by legendary Tomisaburo Wakayama, is dismissed from his title and position as part as a masterplan plotted by the Yagyū clan. After the murder of his wife and the slaughter of all their household, Ogami Ittō throws himself into a blood battle to avenge the death of his clan and his disgrace by becoming a rōnin, a samourai with no lord or master. Together with his young son Daigorō, whom he wheels about in a stroller replete with weapons of all kinds, they become known from now on as Kozure Okami, which literally means Lone Wolf and Cub, they wander the country with an unwavering drive as an assassin-team to be hired by the highest bidder to avenge themselves in bloodshed and vowing to topple the Yagyū clan. As a result of an unexpected mixture of traditional Japanese music and psychedelic rock music with multiple echoing and resounding effects, as well as musical elements that are reminiscent of the blaxploitation film genre of the 1970s, these 24 tracks perfectly convey the dramatic stance and epic dimension of the series. Moving from dream-like and hypnotic passages played by an orchestra of violins and wind instruments to faster ones, in which the taiko - percussion instruments - gallop their way through the Japanese landscapes of this medieval fantasy, these compositions created by Hideaki Sakurai give pride of place to the shakuhachi, a typical Japanese bamboo flute. With its diverse and changing forms, Sakurais music takes on different shades that give it an atypical side ? at times funky, as in the Besieging Army of Ura Yagyu piece, it can also become more jazzy, as in the final theme of the Baby Cart In Peril. Although they keep their original identity, these rare instruments abound in influences and will ravish the fans of the series, but also more widely-speaking all music lovers, thanks to their overflowing of richness and inventiveness. This DELUXE edition comes with embossed sleeve, red vinyl, a poster reproducing the first part of the sagas original one, and an exclusive seven-inch single including 3 tracks from the TV series. LIMITED TO 500 copies only. Be quick or be dead!" - K.O.

"Surrealism raised its willfully mutated head on the third Groovy release, Hangahar, credited to SALLY SMMIT AND HER MUSICIANS. Claiming to be the soundtrack of the film Hangahar, the album was inspired by a casual demonstration of a made-up sung language. A full-blown recording session captured this previously unheard quantity, the better to wake the world to its allure. The Groovy gang broke out the oscillator and any other synth devices they had on hand (along with a kitchen cabinet full of impromptu percussives) to back up the operatic overtones of the mysterious eponymous chantueses via drones, riffs, chanting and, with reverb pots fully open, loads of ominous atmosphere throughout.

Title: Adhere
Format: LP
Label: Miasmah
Country: UK
Price: $19.00
"When legendary noise duo Yellow Swans dissolved just prior to releasing Going Places, it left in its wake two musicians with very distinct but very different voices. Pete Swansons post-YS technoid experimentations have been well documented, but that still leaves Gabriel Saloman, who, after leaving the group, buried himself headfirst in sounds and images that were possibly even further away from his comfort zone. Adhere is Salomans first "proper" solo album, and it finds him stripping away the blood, sweat and tears of his old band, revealing a rich seam of ominous restraint. Delicately-picked strings, piano and hocking woodblock percussion are drowned in reverb and drawn out in cold anguish giving a cracked, minimalist mirror to the work of fellow Miasmah alums Kreng or Elegi. A softly-spoken record, while Adhere pushes away Salomans noise history, none of his well-documented intensity is discarded and lost. Instead, the blistering punk nihilism is allowed to simmer and boil over in different ways, and the occasional moments of post-Cocteau Twins shimmering bliss we could just about make out on Going Places are now given a chance to shine in all their glory. Adhere is a surprising, challenging and perfectly-paced album, and fits into its very own niche, ushering in a new generation of listeners to Salomans distorted, hazy vision.

Title: Movement Building Vol. 2
Format: LP
Label: Shelter Press
Country: France
Price: $22.00
"Gabriel Saloman presents the second volume in his Movement Building trilogy, continuing the release of original compositions commissioned for contemporary dance works. Following the enthusiastically received first installment -- Vol. 1s album-length The Disciplined Body (SHELTER 051LP, 2014) -- Saloman offers up five tracks that combine shimmering bowed guitars and reverberant acoustic percussion into a meditative and powerful break from anything hes produced before. Mobilizing the frequencies of contemporary electronic music (fine-tuned to speaker-rattling effect by Helmut Erler at Berlins Dubplates & Mastering), Movement Building Vol. 2 abandons the conventional instrumentation- and genre-motifs embraced by many of Salomans peers in favor of a unique hybrid of avant-drone, psych-rock, and Japanese traditional music. In 2013 Saloman was commissioned by the Vancouver, Canada-based dance company 605 Collective to collaborate on the multimedia dance performance The Sensationalists (2015). An early inspiration for both The Sensationalists and the music collected in Movement Building Vol. 2 was Yasunari Kawabatas 1956 novel Snow Country; its tragic love affair became a thematic and contextual source for early phases of the project, and much of the music on this album is a result. Borrowing compositionally and tonally from Taiko drums and Gagaku (an ancient drone-based imperial court music), Saloman reproduced sounds originating in traditional Japanese drums, wind, and string instruments almost completely on guitar, ride cymbals, and snare drum. This influence is most explicit in the undulating rhythms that open the first side of Vol. 2 ("Contained Battle/Ascend") and the layered escalation of "Gagaku," a methodical combination of rhythm and drone that climbs to a peak of psych-tinged burning guitar lines. Concluding the album is a version of Miles Daviss classic ballad, "My Funny Valentine," an uncanny combination of original percussion and guitar, collaged together with what may be a live recording of Daviss "second great quintet" taken from YouTube, processed, and time-stretched on tape. Just as Salomans previous output has combined cinematic atmospheres with guitar-driven climaxes that easily appeal to fans of neo-classical experimentalism and post-rock-informed drone, this record opens new compositional territory while maintaining a recognizable melancholy ambience. Exposure to the monolithic bass and open spaces of dub-influenced EDM has led Saloman in a different direction than many of his peers (including artists such as Cut Hands, Vatican Shadow, and former Yellow Swans bandmate Pete Swanson) and toward something that moves bodies and triggers their nerve endings, but with no concession to the dancefloor." - Shelter Press.

Title: Riots Dont Just Happen
Format: 10"
Label: Infinite Greyscale
Country: Germany
Price: $33.00
"One-sided cherry red vinyl. Screen-printed B-side by master screen-printer, Ulrich Schmidt-Novak. Composed for a dance of the same name, choreographed by Daisy Karen Thompson. Gabriel Saloman (Yellow Swans, Mudsuckers) begins Riots Dont Just Happen with a shuddering drum roll before settling into a series of brooding, rumbling guitar drones. Military drums disrupt the standoff and with this call to arms, tension swiftly mounts as the atmosphere becomes denser and increasingly claustrophobic. Handmade artwork by Paul McDevitt & Cornelius Quabeck using a Risograph printer in combination with spray paint. Mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin. Numbered edition of 300 which will not be repressed. Includes a photograph, insert, and download code." - Infinite Greyscale.

Title: Soldiers Requiem
Format: LP
Label: Miasmah
Country: UK
Price: $19.00
"LP version with download code. Gabriel Saloman furthers his dive into the dynamics of sound and delivers four pieces of intense yet restrained requiems set to piano, guitar, and drums with Soldiers Requiem, his follow-up to last years highly-emotive record Adhere. Although touching on his past in Yellow Swans (with Pete Swanson), Saloman continues to explore the noises within rather than the purely physical component of his former collaborator. Thats not saying this is lighthearted material. Quite the contrary. This is an album that needs to be experienced on proper volume for potential heart-stopping effect. Sounding as if you may be the last person left on earth, Soldiers Requiem guides you through rain-filled open spaces, epic showdowns and abandoned cities. The debris is floating and in the shadow lurks a guitar-picking Vincent Gallo. Meanwhile, there seems to be marching bands closing in on all fronts while a punk band playing Tim Hecker tracks can be heard from the horizon. Soldiers Requiem confirms Saloman as a man able to further his own musicality while regaining the key elements to his recipe. This is music for modern decay and melancholy." - Miasmah.

"Having formed during the height of the Zamrock period, Salty Dog was a three man band modeled after the Jimi Hendrix Experience. Wanting to base the band around the concept of the force of life, Salty Dog was chosen for the bands name because it is a slang term for sperm. The eighth release on the Zambezi imprint,Salty Dog is one of the most obscure Zambian titles from the era having failed to achieve the success of some of their peers like Witch. The self-titled release is a combination of psychedelic rock, blues, and folk, with all English songs. Really good from start to end, essential for collectors of African rock and insanely rare as an original. Comes with a 7" of the non-LP single that was released before the album titled Sunday Morning Sunshine." - Strawberry Rain.

Dominates the obscuro-drone parameters of its own universe with mystifying ease." - FE. Also known as K Salvatore.

Title: Soft and Loud
Format: LP
Label: Plates Of Sound
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
Deluxe U.S. vinyl version of an obscure Australian CD release by Samartzis. Luxurious quality production all around, #d edition of 500 copies. "Dr. Philip Samartzis, a senior lecturer and coordinator of sound at RMIT in Australia, is not a novice to the experimental music scene. He was one of the founding members of the Australian avant-turntable/noise group Gum in the 80s, and has since been composing abstract electronic music, w/ previous releases on Synaesthesia, Dorobo, Staalplaat, and For4Ears. Samartzis Soft and Loud is a modern day exploration of Japans culture and identity through the guise of modern day musique concrete. Soft and Loud was conceived in the winter of 1999 in Tokyo, Japan and meticulously completed in Melbourne, Australia in August 2003, using specifically derived field recordings (that Philip had recorded) from Japan that detail the daily existence of many of its people. The digitally altered sounds of the Japanese subway system, electronic bird calls, the mournful calling of a chestnut salesman, to the digital wash of a Japanese stream cohesively offers a sense of serenity, and calmness as well as the loud, busy and chaotic nature of a country that appears often reserved and guarded. We, the listeners, become voyeurs to the country and experience the key characteristics of Japan that defines itself as a country." - Plates Of Sound.

Country: Sweden
Price: $16.00
"The second Samla Mammas Manna album, originally issued by Silence in 1973. With two bonus tracks. Two more albums would follow on Silence under this spelling of the name, then they would change it to Zamla Mammaz Manna and finally, Von Zamla, going into the mid-80s. This group falls well into the "progressive weirdness" category that Gong, Area, and Pell Mell were part of. While some of the many short tracks have a considerable amount of "noise" (screechy vocals, strange sounds), the band has, not unlike Gong, a killer musicianship that makes Måltid a listenable (and enjoyable) offering. Not unlike early Magma or Moving Gelatine Plates, but with more of a sense of humor." -Silence

"Exacting reissue of the 1970 debut album by this trailblazing Swedish quartet, led by composer/pianist/organist/accordionist/vocalist Lasse "Lars" Hollmer, just prior to any knowledge of anything called "RIO" (Rock In Opposition). Formed in the late late 60s in Uppsala, SMM canvassed the festival circuit (appearing on the same bill that Träd Gräs och Stenar recorded their mammoth Live Gardet 1970 album) to popular and critical appeal. Later SMM would team up with groups like Henry Cow and such to affix a politically-bent moniker to their particularly labyrinthine chord progressions. Here we get a few prog-polkas for the kids, a bit of tasteful Rhodes bob, a few Swedish-folk sounding numbers, a fast carnival segue or two, near Deep Purplesque organ snaking, etc...

Title: The Psychedelic Years, 1977-1979
Format: LP
Label: Dounia
Country: France
Price: $24.00
"The Sanullim (also spelt as Sanulrim) band is rightly considered to be one of the most influential figures on the South Korean rock scene. Composed of three brothers born into a well-off family, Kim Chang-wan, Kim Chang-hoon and Kim Chang-ik, the bands first name, when they were still university students, was A Mu-Lee (or Mui), but was to be changed to San Ul Lim ("Echo from the mountains") at the record companys request. Released in 1977, their debut album was a great commercial success selling over a million copies. Inspired by both the garage rock of the 1960s and the jittery punk music of the time, San Ul Lim delivered a sound that was still new in South Korea. It is a surprising sound indeed that contrasts with the apparently casual lyrics, as the censorship imposed by Park Chung-hees regime forced the members of the band to compose songs that did not actually call for any relevant changes. The band released over ten albums, then parted ways after drummer Kim Chang-iks sudden death in 2008. This collection gathers for the first time the bands best pieces from 1977 to 1979, thus covering the psychedelic period of the first five albums. This is a rare opportunity to listen to and enjoy the music of the fuzziest band in South-East Asia." - Dounia.

Title: Golem
Format: LP
Label: Rotorelief
Country: France
Price: $25.00
“I first heard of SAND ten years ago, when I noticed a copy of an album entitled Golem in Steven Stapletons vast collection. I was - and am still - a great admirer of the works of Gustav Meyrinck, whose novel Der Golem is his most famous publication, and which inspired the wondrous film of the same title directed by Paul Wegener. I hoped the record may have been a muscial evocation of the book. it wasnt, but was instead an album of haunting, dreamlike songs, quite unlike anything I had heard then, or have heard since. The album obsessed me, and i eventually tracked a copy down for myself with the assistance of Edward Ka-Spel, another connoisseur of this scarce recording, and it established itlsef in my Top Ten Albums Ever. I listened to the album again and again, trying to work out just how SAND - a group whom, as far as I knew at that time, had done this one album and then disappeared forever - had created this most bizarre ghost of a sound. At one point John Balance of Coil and i discussed doing a remake of the entire album, but decided it would be impossible to equal it. teh only attempt we made was on "May Rain", which turned up on Current 93s Thunder Perfect Mind album in 1992. I had tried, on and off, to get in touch with any of SAND, but no-one seemed to know who they were, never mind where they were. Eventually Steven and Alan Freeman, Krautrock experts, editors of the Audion magazine and proprietors of the Ultima Thule shop, gave me the telephone number of Klaus Müller, the manager of Klaus Schulze, who had recorded the album for SAND in 1974. Klaus Müller at first thought I was trying to arrange an interview with the group, and patiently pointed out there was no point in interviewing them as they were no longer together. I explained that my wish was to release the album, not to interview them, and Klause swiftly came back to me with Johannes Vesters number in Berlin. I went there to meet him, and he played me a vast array of extra material that they had recorded towards Golem, as well as his unreleased solo album, Born At Dawn, recorded under the wonderful name of Johannes Vester And His Vester Bester Tester Electric Folk Orchestra, and hours of music recorded with P.O.T. and his friends in the still earlier halcyon hippy days. There had been several near-meetings between Steven, Johannes and myself, it transpired: Johannes had once lived just behind in a house just behind mine when I was involved with Psychic TV; and had once holidayed in Eire and walked up the mountain behind Steven Stapletons house, situated in the wilds of ireland. he had visited Rough Trade Distribution in 1983 with copies of the ALU record, and had just left the shop - Johannes had taken a photograph of the warehouse and asked me if I knew the person staring out of the image: it was Douglas P. of Death In June! All proof that we were destined to meet and that, ten years after first marvelling at Golem, Steven and myself could release it on United Durtro, VerySound of VerySand.” - David Tibet, TinyLand, 16 April 1996.

"The present album is a reissue of Golem, the legendary album from the cosmic and psychedelic genius that is Sand. Factory-noise, riveting hammers from the dockyards, agricultural machines, Starfighters low level flights, land manoeuvres by the British Forces in the mountainous countryside along the winding river were the culture medium for extended sound aesthetics. Sand was born and created the GOLEM.
At first Sand dressed the Golem with Helicopter and dir ected him to walk ahead.

Label: Rotorelief
Country: France
Price: $24.00
"200-gram rubine and blue LP version in deluxe heavy-duty sleeve. Limited numbered edition of 333. Previously unreleased album from the 70s by German trio Sand. Still living in the mythical landscapes, Sand not not only created Golem (ROTOR 006CD/LP/BLU-LP/PIC-LP, 1974), who was a being of the earth. Something else pulsated with a different energy of oscillation. The invisible beings of the air performed their dances. The Golem was large, mighty and of compact matter. He needed an external spirit to be navigated. Sylph creatures moved with the clouds and the wind -- from gentle breezes to violent storms, always sensitive to the chimes of the motions. The sylphs are the children of the moonlight as well as the elves with broken wings. The Sylph Ballet is riding upon ethereal horses and its airy spirit comes true in dawn levitation. There is something magical and inexplicable in creation, and Sand absolutely manifest these mysterious phenomena. Storytellers, musicians, shamans, geniuses -- Sand were known, at the end of the 60s, as P.O.T. (Part of Time). Then Sand -- Ludwig Papenberg, his brother Ulrich Papenberg, and Johannes Vester -- developed a more avant-gardist, proto-industrial, visionary, experimental approach, becoming a truly unique entity in the history of music.

"This is MARTIN HERTERICHs second pass around the NNF circuit in his SAND CIRCLES hovercraft (following 2011s Midnight Crimes EP), and though the general schematics and engine design remain the same-aged drum machines, afterhours analog tape echo, faded synth riffs, derelict metropolis atmospheres-Motor Citys grace and execution place it in a superior division to anything else hes tracked to date. A cool, loner narrative arc plays out across each side too: "Entering Motor City" across "White Sand" wherein theres a "Downtown Holdup" in the "Innercity Haze," before cruising back out of the urban sprawl, "Distant Lights" in the rearview, on through the "Endless Nights," "Descending Into Space." As with his last tape, the Sand Circles chemistry of transfusing reverb-refracted electronic horizon melodies with pulsing, primitivist warehouse-party drum machinery really succeeds in evoking this weirdly poignant bedroom/industrial reverie mood-sphere, and the 11 instrumentals of Motor City hit this interzone pressure point better than ever.

Title: Yiddish Speaking Socialists Of The Lower East Side
Format: 10"
Label: Okraina
Country: Belgium
Price: $18.00
“2015 release. Yiddish-Speaking Socialists Of The Lower East Side by Ed Sanders (b. 1939), founder of the mythical Fugs in 1964 and also a writer, publisher, activist, etc., is an epic piece of almost 18 minutes in length, a vocal setting of a dense and reasoned text that runs to eight typed pages, 1400 words, 8500 characters. First issued on cassette in 1991 by the label Hyperaction P.C.C., the piece recalls an almost fifty-year history of Jewish militancy in New York by poetic means - combining historical scholarship, emotion and clarity, the echoes of the past found in the present: of the pogroms and escape from Eastern Europe in the 1880s up to the death of Meyer London, the Socialist member of Congress, in 1926 (not overlooking exile, the crossing of the Atlantic, arrival at Ellis Island, back-breaking work in the sweatshops, the creation of political parties and trade unions, the outbreak of the First World War - the rupture in the narrative caused by this is marked here by the passage from the A-side to the B-side of the record). This is a literary project that is simultaneously ambitious and highly personal and which cannot help but recall America: A History In Verse (nine volumes published between 1998-2008), which has occupied Ed Sanders for almost 15 years and which, over more than 3000 pages, recounts in verse the history - both poetic and political - of the United States. For this recording of Yiddish-Speaking Socialists Of The Lower East Side, Ed Sanders accompanies himself on a "pulse lyre", a small, finger-operated synthesizer which he invented himself in order to accompany the declamation of his texts in the manner of the acoustic lyre used by the ancient poets (Sanders studied Greek at university). Yiddish-Speaking Socialists Of The Lower East Side is a text (and a recording) of dual resonance, animated by the fits and starts of history as well as the rhythm of the writing (and reading) of Ed Sanders. This reissue was re-recorded in mono in 2006; Mastered by Harris Newman (Grey Market Mastering, Montréal 2014); Illustrations by Gwénola Carrère; Comes in a gatefold sleeve.” - Okriana.

Those songs have been re-edited and remastered for this EP, and three more rare demos and live versions have been added. The songs can be described as hypnotic industrial electronic mantras with enigmatic keyboards and treated vocals.

"A 7" release of primitive D.I.Y. electronics by Sandra Plays Electronics, a project founded by Karl OConnor (Regis) while he was a teenager living in Birmingham, England in the 1980s. OConnor, mostly known for his pioneering work in the techno field (as Regis, Sandwell District, British Murder Boys, and various other entities) as well as his Downwards label, began playing and recording his own music when he was 16 years old. He collaborated with friends performing in short-lived bands such as Family Sex and also recorded on his own as Sandra Plays Electronics. He was heavily influenced by D.A.F., Liaisons Dangereuses, Cabaret Voltaire, and Soft Cell, to name a few. He would eventually collaborate with Robert Görl and also Chrislo Haas in the late 90s. The tracks we are presenting here are two versions of the same song, Her Needs, both recorded in Birmingham, England. The first was recorded in 1988 during sound check at the College of Food and Domestic Arts and the second was recorded in 1999 (from the Man Has Responsibilities session) at the Ice House.

"2005 was the last time anyone heard from Melissa Agate aka Sanso-Xtro on her record for Type, Sentimentalist. Since then, quite a bit has happened. Agate has relocated to her native Australia and the move has treated her well. Fountain Fountain Joyous Mountain takes a lot of the ideas from her first record and dials them in, pushing everything to the next level. This collection of songs is a quiet force, blissfully confident and expertly assembled. Sansos soundworld is a fully immersive environment. On the opener, "Fountain Fountain," we get a glimpse of everything to come. Theres this carefully controlled chaos at work that is immediately hypnotizing. Agate sings simple passages toward the end, welcoming listeners into this new world as her voice floats above the fray. It becomes obvious as the album progresses that Agate is, at heart, a drummer. The staccato rhythms and percussive embellishments bring the album to life. These rapid-fire beats in conjunction with precise, half-speed instrumentation work in perfect harmony. Reminiscent of Blackdance-era Klaus Schulze at times, theres an intoxicating dizzyness that is effortlessly present in "The Origin Of Birds" and "Wood Owl Wings A Rush Rush." Agate even throws a few nods to free jazz with "Goodnight Thylacine." Her skill as a drummer is matched by her ability as a songwriter, knowing when to push it over the top and when to hold back. Album closer "Exit: Joyous Mountain," sounds like a lost Alan Lomax gem with its melodica/harmonica duet and delicate singing. "Hello Night Crow" is the literal and figurative center of the album, though. It starts with a ringing synth loop that gives nothing away until the chord changes emerge a minute in. Again, its about the slow-build, raising the tension and anticipation before melting into the sky. "You wouldnt recognize that its not there anymore," Agate sings over the bubbling waves of synths. It is beautiful and crushing." -Digitalis

First non-privately distributed release on Raymond Dijkstras label since 2009, following a long string of ultra-limited art edition lathe-cuts. An unlikely collaboration between Dijkstra and Tiff Lion, who has done soundtrack work for CSI and The Hunger Games. LP by the duo to follow next year on Dekorder. "The music has an obscure and surreal character hard to categorize. It certainly has filmic qualities, if only as a film of the inner-eye. The music has a psychedelic touch and elements of esotericism by its use of sitar, (primitively played) tabla and highly reverberated string instruments. The reciting of old Italian Alchemistic texts by Tiff Lion links the music further to a dark spirituality. There is a great emphasis on acoustic instrumentation played in a raw manner (among others piano-strings) giving the whole record a very rudimentary character. The use of electronics is done in such a way that its often impossible to divide acoustic and electronic sounds. The electronic instrumentation thus emphasizes the rawness of the acoustic sounds. Highly recommended for lovers of psychedelic music." "Vanilla white vinyl with dash of brown (every exemplar has a different dash so every exemplar is unique) Vinyl-record weight: 160 grams. 33 Rpm.

On this debut release See Sun Think Shadow Baird releases eight tracks performed on a Steinway Grand in December of 2011 in a church in her hometown of Decatur, Illinois recorded just days before her fathers passing on December 30, 2011. These improvisations have a raw focus of emotional intensity and calm that premiere Bairds classical piano training with her very own style of punctuation, spacing and repetition.” - Perfect Wave.

After performing at a concert in Oakland, 2010 and feeling proud of their musical output, Tom and Pete decided to collaborate with one another again. The resulting record amalgamates Toms self-oscillating, power-starved shredding psychedelia with Petes self-proclaimed "more neanderthal attempts at VU/Roy Montgomery-inspired simple melodicism." Ultimately, the album is an unusual haze of oscillator sweeps, dying batteries, ripping solos and clean(ish) two-chord backbones forming a very unique angle on the possibilities that the "psychedelic rock" format could aspire towards.

"Monster Melodies present the legendary album Satan, an absolute must-have in terms of French progressive music, recorded in 1973 and never before released. In 1968, in Le Mans (a town in the west of France in Les pays de la Loire), some young students, planning to become teachers, started a band under the name The New Rainbow. Like many young musicians at the time, they enjoyed English blues and were fans of Pink Floyd, Soft Machine and Led Zeppelin. Quickly, they changed their name to Heaven Road and started to become famous west of France, playing live frequently. After playing covers, they wrote their own compositions and delivered a very good show at the same level of any professional band. In Paris, they won three contests in Le Golf Drouot (the mecca of the French rock at the time) and were declared the best non-professional French band of 1972. Playing at the festival, the band started to hang out with big names from the French rock scene, like Variations, Magma, Il Etait Une Fois, Catharsis, Ange and Dynastie Crisis. In 1973, they decided to be a professional band and change their name to Satan. They produced a unique music between hard rock and progressive and delivered intense shows, inspired by the world of sci-fi and literature, with musicians wearing make-up and strange costumes. But despite the fact that they played before the English band Caravan in 1974 and had an appearance in local TV show, the band always suffered from financial difficulties. For this reason, they created the more commercial band Ciel Dété with the intention of playing exclusively in the ballroom circuit. With the financial proceeds from Ciel Dété performances, they went to a studio in Angers twice - the first time to record two commercial tracks for Ciel Dété, and the second time to record tracks for the future album by Satan which had been performing for more than three years at that point. But at the time, they couldnt find a record company to publish their record. Satan collapsed in the middle of 1976, joining the cohort of musical project killed by the French musical industry - an industry which was preoccupied with making easy money by already successful English and American music and producing very dispensable French music, marketed commercially. Comes as colored vinyl; Includes a poster and inserts; Edition of 1000 (numbered)." - Monster Melodies.

"Of all the former Eastern Bloc countries, Yugoslavia (and Croatia in particular) had one of the most exciting and innovative punk/underground rock & roll scenes and the legend among Yugo/Croat punk legends is SATAN PANONSKI (nee IVICA CULJAK). Starting with pioneering, late-70s, Yugo punk band POGREB X, through incarceration, a solo career and an untimely death by a mysterious bullet during the Croatian War of Independence, Satan Panonski literally cut his way into E. Euro punk history. His stage act was an extreme blend of punk shock and Auto-Destructiv performance. His music is a vivid mix of KBD-style punk, Serbo-Croatian folk melodies, and jags into abstract avant punk. Three cassettes were released during his life (and shortly after his death), one of which made it to vinyl. The vinyl is now very collectible. SS has culled through dozens of songs and come up with the creme de la punk, all transferred from the original tapes. Vinyl mastering by JOHN GOLDEN makes Satan Panonski sound the best he has ever sounded. This also includes much of Ivica Culjaks art, new lyric translations, a long biographical essay, and plenty of photos, all in a 16-page booklet. There is no CD or digital download." -S-S.

When my band Universal Indians was asked to open for Sonic Youth - Anton said "You have to ask Thurston about Satan Place!!". Many of you may remember seeing this title listed in EP ads back in the day. Thurston said it had never been released and asked if Id be into putting it out. I agreed!! So he had his bud Byron Crowley dig it up in the Ecstatic Yod archive and mail it to me. That was about 4 or so years ago. So finally my slack ass has gotten around to dubbing these things off!!! So what is Satan Place?? Satan Place is a 70 minute interview conducted in 1985 by a man known only as "Phantom Tollbooth" with a group of Satanist Teenagers from upstate New York. What he uncovered is unbelievable... shocking tales of rituals consisting of eating live frogs; drinking urine mixed with oil; sex; drugs; Ozzy and Dio; and other hideous acts which must be heard to be believed. They have guitars too! And there is 20 minutes or so that sound much like Bruce Russell waiting around for the other dudes to show up at a Dead C practice. What we have here is a very important document exploring the twisted minds of the Satanist Teenager of the 1980s.

"There was a time when the strength of a musicians vision transcended all labels; here is a chance to dip into that pool again, and emerge not just refreshed, but alive again with the sense that we all can live in that world again, but most importantly raise the flag for excellence. Fantastic." -Jim ORourke.
"An unholy grail of near-mythical status is finally now available in the form of this first-ever reissue. Masahiko Sato composed this elusive, sensual, psychedelic free jazz score for the stunning 1973 Japanese witchcraft animation Belladonna of Sadness (Kanashimi no Belladonna) directed by Eiichi Yamamoto. Since the mid-2000s, Belladonna of Sadness has risen from the ashes and now shines brighter than ever. Now, on the eve of its third or fourth global DVD release in 2015, fans no longer have to settle for third-generation VHS telecine dubs or stuff their wish-lists into the hands of lucky friends visiting Tokyo. Belladonna has been used as nightclub projections by clued-up VJs and been restored by discerning feminist folk singers and improv bands while influencing illustrators, fashion designers, and other creative types along the way. Original copies of the soundtrack, however, are much less likely to rear their heads, with prices literally doubling each time the original stock copies swap hands among the same Italian dealers at central European record fairs. Italian soundtracks are expensive anyway, but this one, originally released by the Italian Cinevox label in 1975, has extra credentials. Finders Keepers Records and Sato himself agreed that this record should finally be liberated among those who know the magic words. With the decision to keep this album "strictly Sato," a track from the original release has been removed -- the main orchestral love theme by Asei Kobayashi and Mayumi Tachibana -- which in all honesty is very much detached from Satos psychedelic soundtrack. Kept intact, however, are the songs sung and penned by Satos wife at the time, Chinatsu Nakayama, including the track titled "TBFS," which only appears on the master tapes and never actually made it onto the theatrical cut of the film (though the theme is briefly alluded to, with different instrumentation, in a cut-scene available on the German DVD release). This reissue project also marks the beginning of a longer intended relationship between Finders Keepers and Masahiko Sato, exploring his recorded work in film music, jazz, and avant-garde composition.” - Finders Keepers.

Title: Pianology
Format: LP
Label: Victory
Country: Italy
Price: $25.00
“Masahiko Satohs fourth album is a duet with German pianist and composer Wolfgang Dauner. Dauner is one of the very early European avant-garde jazz pianists, and he recorded the first free jazz album in Germany back in 1964. Dauner played with Eberhard Weber and Jean-Luc Ponty, and in the late 60s, he experimented with choral music. Being a passionate innovator and experimenter, in 1970 he discovered electronic devices and started using them in his music. He experimented with ring-modulated Hohner clavinets and pianos and recorded several albums for ECM. During his Japanese tour in spring 1971, he met one of the most advanced Japanese pianists of that time, Masahiko Satoh. The five compositions on this album were recorded in Tokyo in March 1971, but were not released until that autumn. Its interesting that a few months later, Masahiko Satoh will record and release his best-known, and in some sense, legendary album, Amalgamation (ASH 3040CD) -- an eclectic mix of musical genres and sounds that was probably influenced by his earlier collaboration with Dauner. Pianology, released soon after Amalgamation, wasnt as strong in comparison, and stayed in its shade for decades. Pianology is a collection of freeform classical and jazz piano duo improvs, spiced with ring modulator sounds. Includes printed inner sleeve.” - Victory.

"This preposterous piece of psychedelic avant-jazz sounds like the work of aliens, each with only one foot in our universe. Propelled by cacophonous brassy blasts, volleys of machine-gunning, ecstatically Light Fantastic rhythms and moments of Teo Macero-style Mixing Concrète (during which the whole track becomes consumed by waves of new sound); the result is the most singular mash-up of inappropriate sounds any listener is ever likely to hear. Over two side-long tracks, shaman Masahiko Satoh sends us through a sonic mind-field, baffling our senses and our sense of gravity. Located at the centre of Amalgamations giddy sessions was the frantic Detroit drumming of hard-bop legend Louis Hayes, whose role it was to play the bubbling ever unfolding fundament on which Masahiko Satohs whole trip proceeded, as though the rhythm section were a magic carpet magically pulled out from under the feet of the other performers. Over this rhythmic shaking, Satoh scattered Hammond organ around and ring-modulated his Fender Rhodes piano solos (Roland built three especially for the record), added lead guitar from super session legend Kimio Mizutani, trumpets and sax from Mototeru Takagi, scat singing from Kayoko Itoh, and strings from the Wehnne Strings Consort." -- Japrocksampler

"One of the most tripped-out albums youll ever hear from Japanese keyboardist Masahiko Satoh, and thats saying a lot, considering some of his other avant sessions of the 70s! This ones from 1971 and a really free-form jam -- recorded so that each of the two long tunes takes up a side of the record apiece -- one with really full-on, frenzied noise courtesy of some ring modulators played by Satoh, undercut with some really heavy drums from Louis Hayes, a surprising entry for a session like this! Side two has a sound thats a bit more organic -- some spare percussion at first -- but the record then moves into noisier territory too, and even features some cool, scatting female vocals. Highly recommended! Numbered, limited edition housed in an LP replica sleeve. Digitally remastered. Sits at #7 on Julian Copes Japrocksampler Top 50 list." - Phoenix.

Format: CD
Label: Edition Omega Point
Country: Japan
Price: $27.00
"Emerald Tablet was recorded at the NHK electronic-music studio in 1978. It is made up of only the sonic ingredients of a tubular bell, cymbals, and kin, a largish-sized bell used for Buddhist memorial services in Japan. The attack of the sound of each instrument was eliminated, and the work was taped through repeated overdubbing. This produced a variety of beautiful harmonics that otherwise could not be produced from a single instruments sound, and the interference of harmonics created beats, generating a fantastical melody in the high tone range. Harmonics are one of the most mystic phenomena in the world. The wonder of harmonics led me to produce Emerald Tablet. Echoes was composed for the "Mist, Sound, and Light Festival," a 10-day event organized by the hot spring tourist association of Kawaji, Tochigi Prefecture, that was held on May 20-29, 1981. The venue was located at the Kawaji hot springs Ojika river valley, which was 50 meters wide and 200 meters long with an area of 7,000 square meters. Eight large loudspeakers were set up on hills surrounding the stream, with music played through an octuple channel-tape system. The combined length of cables connected with the loudspeakers exceeded one kilometers. The audience was amidst dense artificial mists spreading upward from the bottom of the valley, laser light beams projected on the hill surface, and tape music that played in extremely low tone at full blast, echoing in the valley. Echoes consists of the sonic ingredients of the three types of percussion instruments used in Emerald Tablet as well as my own voice. I lost the master tapes of both Echoes and Emerald Tablet because of my poor storage of them. When this CD was planned to be produced using copies of the master tapes, the sound quality had deteriorated over more than 30 years of time, with sound distortions found in Echoes as a result of a failure in audio mixing to turn an eight-channel into a four-channel system. But Mr. Sumihisa Arima completely removed all dirty parts of the copies, giving this CD a freshly-minted sound. I even feel as if its sound is better than the original one. Without Mr. Arima, it would be impossible to release the two pieces again. I appreciate his help." --Somei Satoh (English translation: Toshiyuki Kawata); Housed in a cardboard paper gatefold sleeve.

"Limited edition of 500 copies. Reissue of rare and very special U.S. 70s LP. Includes an insert with a previously untold band history and interviews by Patrick Lundborg (author of The Acid Archives and Psychedelia). Saturn is 1970s "Rhinestone Rock," featuring an expressive disco-influenced female vocalist, invoking powerful visions of 70s couples under mirrored balls in downtown velvet sofa nightclubs decorated with huge day-glow zodiac wall-paintings. A heavy mystic sideshow vibe with undertones of the occult and science fiction. On a superficial mainstream level, the mid-1970s may appear as one of the music scenes less exciting eras, dominated as it was by industry-approved repetition and tired formulas. On the regional and local levels however, the situation was different and more exciting. Live music still dominated in clubs, bars and lounges, and thousands of working bands made a living playing gigs on their regional circuits. The traditional model of mimicking recent top 40 hits had given way to a more complex challenge for club bands, which were now expected to handle a melting pot of sounds that emerged out of the creative explosion of the late 60s. One of the more intriguing works to emerge from this next-step progression came from a Colorado-based outfit called Saturn, who released a self-titled album in 1978 containing only self-penned material. This album was intended more as a showcase for Saturns talents than a genuine commercial release, but within its grooves dwells several outstanding numbers with a rare, magical atmosphere. Despite their genre-transcending originality, Saturns demo album hardly made a blip on the radar and remains very rare today, with only a few copies known among collectors." -Subliminal Sounds.

Master tape sound; original artwork; includes insert with interview with Saucedo and detailed liner notes by Jeremy Cargill (Got Kinda Lost/Ugly Things). Heaven Was Blue drifts in the same sonic milieu as fellow travelers in 60s square peg joy Darius, Marcus, D.R. Hooker (without the lounge allusions), or late period psych adventurers Michael Angelo and Bobb Trimble -- and his concentration and vision equals or exceeds these international underground heroes. Rick Saucedo is an internationally-known Elvis tribute artist, actor, and singer-songwriter from Chicago. In 1978, after some years of doing his Elvis show, he decided he wanted to have his own identity, and recorded an album with his own songs, influenced by The Beatles and Pink Floyd. All instruments on the album were played by Rick with help from a couple of friends. Songs like "Reality," which was written in a graveyard just after the passing of Mr. Presley, or "In My Mind," which dates back to 1967, written just after Sgt. Pepper had come out, are prime examples of dreamy acid psych with Lennon-esque vocals, lysergic guitars, and studio effects. Theres also a couple of fuzz rockers with a strong 50s vibe, and then theres the album centerpiece: the impressive 18-minute "Heaven Was Blue" suite, which Rick envisioned as an "acid trip dream." In words of Patrick Lundborg, "Saucedo pulls it off. Somehow like how you turn the wheels on a kaleidoscope, new melodies, guitar figures and arrangements emerge out of the old ones every three minutes, each sequence more swirling and enchanting that the last, with a sense of progression throughout." This expanded reissue offers a full extra album of bonus tracks: "Oh My God" was the conclusion to "Reality" and "In My Mind," recorded in 1978 but omitted from the original album at the last moment. Previously unreleased on vinyl until now. "Baby in the Sand" and "It Burns Again Today" were written during the Heaven Was Blue sessions but went unrecorded until 1991; theyre terrific sitar-drenched melodic psych in the same vein as the original album. Previously unreleased on vinyl until now. And theres also both sides of the post-album single Reality/History Makin - Country Shakin, which featured different mixes and an alternate mix of "Reality." These tracks were originally released as promo 45s in very limited quantities." - Guerssen.

"Disillusionment with the "mellow 70s" was turning to rage as the US waged a proxy war in Central America, and San Francisco ignited into fiery riots after the assassination of its mayor and first openly gay city council member. The Saucers reflected these times with caustic humor and impassioned social commentary. In 1980, the band after the departure of first keyboard player, Joey Michaels, renamed themselves The Allies, adding dynamic lead guitarist Craig Magee, formerly with Dyan Diamond (Runaways). With the addition of Magee, the band pivoted from the Saucers Farfisa-dominated garage punk to a more muscular, guitar-driven sound. Local music producer and KALX engineer Terry Hammer worked behind the scenes to get both bands into the studio, with varied results, on display here. He also recorded a number of live shows for the two groups, and its mostly thanks to his efforts that this music survives today. After the definitive split of the band, the drummer Jake Smith went on to join hardcore punk band Crucifix, played in an early version of Faith No More." - Rave Up.

Sauna Youth, attracted to the possibilities apparent within a DIY philosophy, have been self-recording and self-releasing their own music since 2010, creating a number of split 7"s and cassettes. "Weird" is a meaningless platitude, and "art punk" is a classifier that shouldnt be required. Sauna Youth journey into the far-reaching wilds of the unfolding psyche and feast on the chaos within, quickly collapsing any pre-conceived notions within minutes of impolite introduction.” - Gringo.

"Clear 7". Limited edition of 500. Irregular punk band Sauna Youth follow their lauded 2015 Distractions album (UTR 071CD/LP) and an appearance on Marc Rileys All Shook Up BBC Music TV show with a 7" containing "The Bridge" (from Distractions) and exclusive track "Blurry Images." Beginning and ending in squalling feedback, "The Bridge" is the song that rings longest in the listeners head when listening to Distractions; brisk, tireless, and smart as a whip. "Blurry Images" pins its drumbeat and bassline down with throbbing keyboard jabs before one of the most unhinged guitar solos the band has yet committed to tape." - Upset the Rhythm.

80 pages, b&w, with button. "Third issue of this classy West Coast digest-sized (duh) zine [...] laid out effectively and peppered with vintage schlock ads that reinforce the retro viewpoint present. All interviews and articles for the most part, obviously dealing in rocking and rolling of the past, the majority of which are written by editor Cory Linstrum. The big article is a very in depth interview with Avengers guitarist Greg Ingraham that takes up a good quarter of the zine and also contains some killer pics and fliers (including a crucifixion centerfold). Other “punk” interviews are a nice little Speedies chat with guitarist Greg Crewdson (writer of “Let Me Take Your Photo” who went on to actually become a professional photographer) and a very short Jeff McDonald/Redd Kross Q&A (in which he confesses to being a Ty Segall fan, which will endear him to many Termbo readers Im sure). For the moptops out there theres a piece with Peter Daltrey of Kaleidoscope/Fairfield Parlor who talks more about his book and current band than what we want to hear about – which effectively teases the book I suppose – and an interview with Paul Muggleton of The Savages, the mid-Sixties garage band from Bermuda(!) responsible for the monster cut “The World Aint Round, Its Square”, which is short but very very good for such an obscure band (as opposed to the Ugly Things approach of a three-issue spanning 30 page snoozefest dissecting what Cooper Bowman covered perfectly here in 3 pages). My favorite bit of this zine has always been the "Triple Threat" feature, which in this issue tackles the immortal Larry Wallis in a well researched piece that was a great read. Linstrum hints that hes running out of ammo for Triple Threats (Chuck Biscuits is supposedly next) so mail in some suggestions for him! The reviews section is barely existent (which I dont mind at all), focuses on books/zines/films and only reviews three actual records (including Giuda, yuck) and is pretty disposable, but thats no problem. Im of a different breed than music fans like Cory who seem to ignore the present and live in the past, but to each his own, and I still enjoy Savage Damage very much. Worth a pick up for the Larry Wallis piece alone, plus it comes with a great Stiff Records button with Lazzas image!" - Savage Damage Digest.

Title: Croaks
Format: LP
Label: Feeding Tube
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"One of the highlights of early Devo live shows was a song Booji Boy sang called, “The Words Get Stuck in My Throat.” It was kind of a sappy tune, about little hidden microphones and View-Masters and shit, but it made a huge impression on Angela Sawyer when, still in swaddling clothes, she heard it on a bootleg tape recorded it at Maxs Kansas City. She would sit in front of the family Walkman all day and play that song over and over again. It became, what she calls, “the theme song of my youth.” In the years between that epiphany and this LP, Ms. Sawyer has worn many bonnets. She has been in “bands” like Preggy Peggy & The Lazy Babymakers, Duck That, Exusamwa, and Negative One. She has run a bizarro-world CDR label (Being Weird Isnt Enough). She has championed crazy music for many zines, sites like Perfect Sound Forever, and as a writer of liner notes. She ran the legendary Weirdo Record Store out of a Harvard Square bomb site. And throughout this she has maintained a bad attitude and propensity for ear-damage that always makes her the first person strange foreigners think of when they want someone to play with. She has made her presence felt as a supremely subterranean force on the New England landscape. Anyway, back to the LP at hand. As a result of Angela wondering about what might happen if words actually got stuck in your throat, she began doing sound poetry vocal exercises designed to answer this age old question. Endless hours of such stuff were recorded and studied, with the final determination being that words cant really get stuck. They always come out eventually. And when they do, theyre either croaks or theyre honks. In order to show the difference between these two schools of sound, Sawyer assembled this album from hundreds of hours of recordings. And we think youll agree the results are both startling and revelatory. Science, dear friends, marches on." - Byron Coley, 2016. Edition of 300.

This was produced using an RS Integrator analogue patch bay synthesizer that Id bought around then with the profits of working a 96 hours week on a new London park competition. Another project we produced at the practice was a quirky, live, stop frame short video showcasing various projects for a touring architecture exhibition. I was asked to edit and produce the sound.

"Recollection GRM is one more label within the Editions Mego family of labels. Its aim is to make available on vinyl the vast archives of Groupe De Recherches Musicales (GRM). Being released in batches of two every three months, it will present both known and lesser-known works. All releases will be re-cut at Dubplates & Mastering and packaged in new artwork by Stephen OMalley, featuring bi-lingual (French/English) texts. Some of these pioneering works have been out-of-print in this format for over 30 years, and would be a valuable addition to any serious collection of electronic music. It is worth pointing out that this series is neither a re-run of the original Collection INA-GRM series or the Phillips Prospective 21e Siècle series, but something new altogether. This is Pierre Schaeffers Le Trièdre Fertile, full version 1975-1976, with the participation of Bernard Dürr. This trihedron, Schaeffers last piece, echoes the physicists "reference trihedron," linked to the three fundamental measurements of sound: frequency, duration and intensity. The basic signs of traditional sol-fa that enable the transcribing of pitches, rhythms and nuances also correspond to these three measurements. However, it is precisely outside or beyond these parameters that, all through his life, Schaeffer researched music. Hence, qualifying this trihedron as "fertile" is the confession "of a late repentance." On the other hand, and against all odds, this piece was only composed from synthetic sounds, developed by Bernard Dürr. It is Pierre Schaeffers only purely electronic music work. Here, the synthesizer is rather monitored by sensitivity than by computation principles, thus letting uncanny structures emerge. Cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin, March 2012.

Title: Symphone Pour Un Homme Seul - Concerto Des Ambiguites
Format: LP
Label: Modern Silence
Country: Malta
Price: $27.00
"Electronic/avant-garde music pioneer and founder of the French musique concrète movement, Pierre Schaeffer, a radio engineer, believed that any sound could be music, and was one of the first to experiment with tape looping, splicing and sampling. He was also one of the first to record music on magnetic tape. Drawing inspiration from the Italian Futurists, he emphasized the double meaning of the word "play", meaning to play an instrument, but also to have fun and enjoy oneself. Pierre Henry, a classically trained musician, was one of Schaeffers disciples and together they co-wrote the revolutionary "Symphonie Pour Un Homme Seul", recorded in 1950. Despite its title, it is not a symphony in the classical sense, but a kind of suite divided into 12 movements. It is a musical collage featuring vocal fragments, that are at times recorded backwards, accelerated or repeated, and other sounds like whistles, footsteps, doors slamming, metallic sounds, and a prepared piano. However, what is important about this piece is not merely its intrinsic musical value, but its influence on so many future generations of musicians in so many genres. "Symphonie Pour Un Homme Seul", over half a century later, remains a pioneering experiment in the search for new aural horizons. The Concerto side reveals Henrys personal approach to dissonance, with a strong impact of illogical sequences in the piano "duel": the two instruments seem to collide in a furious rejection of the traditional idea of music, generating a clash of noises that reproduce the sonic pollution of the modern times.
"Symphonie Pour Un Homme Seul" (1949-1950 - First concert performance on March 18, 1950, at the Auditorium of the Ecole Normale de Musique in Paris. First performance as a ballet by Maurice Béjart on July 26, 1955, at the Théâtre de lEtoile in Paris.

Coreographic version by Maurice Béjart under the title "Voyage au cur dun enfant (Trip Into The Heart Of A Child)", first performed on September 6, 1955, with Patrick Benda, at the Théâtre de lEtoile in Paris." - Modern Silence.

“Wisconsin-based composer and improviser, Troy Schafer, has scattered a staggering body of impressive work throughout the darkened pastures of the Midwest over the past decade with his contributions to various group efforts such as Kinit Her, Wreathes, Burial Hex, and Rain Drinkers to name but a few. On top of this stellar output, Schafers 2012 solo release on the Recital label entitled Evening Song Awaken provided further confirmation of his considerable talents as a violinist and as a composer of soul-stirring sounds. The past few years, upon completion of a Masters Degree in Sound at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, has seen Schafers music continue to evolve along more conceptual and theoretical lines, pushing into areas of Musique concrète and performance art, while maintaining a distinctive emotional heft common amongst all of his work. Schafers ongoing Untitled series, started last year, has proven to be the apex of this newfound path as a solo artist, with each installment unlocking a new and varied piece to the beguiling sonic puzzle that he is creating. With that, we couldnt be more thrilled to offer up Untitled No. 4, the latest solo brain-scrambler from Troy Schafer. Here on one side youll find him presenting refined yet dissonant piano lines competing with jarring static disruptions, and on the flip side a lurching industrial swarm bowed out of custom-built electronics and extended techniques. Its another peerless example of modern avant composition forged with blood upon the hands and sweat upon the brow.
Untitled No. 4 comes in a limited edition of 40 clear mono 7” lathes (with digital download card included) or as a stand-alone digital release that includes both the stereo and mono mixes with purchase.” - Sound Bale.

"Minimal Wave is proud to announce our 34th release, a limited edition hand-silkscreened 10" of SCHEDELVRETER (which loosely translates as "Skull Gobber"), the Dutch side project of brilliant minimal synth pioneer DANNY BOSTEN, best known for his project DAS DING. The seven tracks were originally recorded in Dannys home studio in the Netherlands and self-released on a cassette entitled Hunker via his Tear Apart Tapes label in 1985. Unlike Das Ding, Schedelvreter is not pattern-based or sequenced, the synth sounds are hand played over a collage of found sounds. At the time, Danny was experimenting with a Crumar synth that was falling apart, and would sporadically create sounds that were like human voices. He created massive drum sounds by layering noise, using leftover four-track additions in reverse and some live drum recordings courtesy of his brothers tapes. The end result feels narrative and filmic, like the soundtrack to an imaginary apocalyptic movie: bleak and desolate. The newly remastered 10" release is limited to 999 hand-silkscreened numbered copies pressed on black medium weight vinyl." - Minimal Wave.

"In 1967, a bunch of U.S. and Argentinean kids recorded a magical album which has remained unknown for many years due to its extreme rarity, with less than a handful of copies known to exist. Released in 1968 in Argentina by a label called Phonexa, the Schibbinz album could be regarded as the ultimate teen garage folk-rock album, ever. An album of fragile beauty, full of teen charm, innocent vocals, jangly guitars, charming, lo-fi sound and a lost-in-time atmosphere. It has the look and sound that can only be found on some U.S. 60s private-pressings like Rising Storm or Summer Sounds, but Schibbinz music is something else.

Artist: SCHICKERT, GUNTER
Title: Kinder in der Wildnis
Format: LP
Label: Bureau B
Country: Germany
Price: $26.00
"180 gram vinyl. The fact that this album appeared at all in 1983 owes less to Günter Schickert and more to Steven and Alan Freeman, who sought him out for their Krautrock encyclopedia The Crack in the Cosmic Egg. On learning that Schickert had heaps of recordings in his archive, the Freeman brothers proposed compiling an album. Schickert agreed and handed over material which the English YHC label had released in cassette form. Kinder in der Wildnis is a more heterogeneous album than either of its predecessors, understandably so, since the pieces it contains are not immediately related to one another. Occasionally (above all, on the two bonus tracks -- available here for the first time), the influence of Neue Deutsche Welle (German new wave), virtually omnipresent in that era, may be detected. For the most part, however, Schickert stays true to form and creates layers of hypnotic, filigree echo patterns, frequently accompanied by a dragging beat. To add to the atmosphere, he mixed in dummy head recordings made in Kreuzberg on New Years Eve, 1980. In the following decade he augmented these with corresponding recordings from New Years Eve, 1990. A rare treat awaits on the title track -- his four year-old daughter can clearly be heard singing the chorus at full pelt. Günter Schickert remains one of the greats of the Krautrock underground. Alongside his solo album work, he was a member of GAM, No Zen, and Ziguri Ego Zoo and composed a wealth of music for theater. He also painted (the drawings in the booklet, for example) and worked as a multimedia artist. His career in music began in the late 1960s, early 1970s in Berlins legendary Zodiak Free Arts Lab (founded by Konrad Schnitzler and Hans-Joachim Roedelius). Among the similarly creative free spirits he met here was a certain Klaus Schulze, then drumming for Tangerine Dream. He would later join Schulze on tour as a roadie and musician and sometimes looked after Schulzes house when he was on the road. They recorded an album together in 1975 and intended to release it under the title Ich bin zwei Öltanks ("I am two oil tanks"). Alas, it would be another 38 years until it saw the light of day (with the rather more sensible title of The Schulze-Schickert Session). Today, amongst other things, Günter Schickert is back touring with his old band, Ziguri." -Bureau B.

Title: Samtvogel
Format: LP
Label: Wah Wah
Country: Spain
Price: $29.00
"There are records that come from the soul. No matter how primitive may be the recording techniques the musician has access to, the soul gets its way to the heart and mind of the listener. Samtvogel is one of those records. Günter Schickert recorded that amazing piece of human greatness in 1974, using the media he had at the time, putting his brain at work to find the best way of taping everything he had to say. When I was recording Samtvogel in 1974 I had only 2 Taperecorders. I played one track and while listening I added the second one. And so on. Four times. When I mixed all together I borrowed a 3rd taperecorder. And still added the last track to the master. I had a small mixer with 2 stereo and 1 mono but it was possible to pan tracks. No equalization. It all came out of my still living G2000 Dynacord guitar amplifier, of course valve, with no master, even the voice recorded through it. If I made a mistake in 1 track I had to repeat it from the beginning. And if while mixing I was not fast enough in changing the tape I had to start again. So it took me more than 3 months to get ready. Thanks to these three months of work, between June and September of 1974, Samtvogel was privately issued that same year. It would later be issued on the Brain label, with a small change in the artwork -- titles added to the front cover, which werent on the original private pressing. Brain also reissued it on the labels Rock On Brain LP series, this time with a completely different sleeve. The album contained two tracks on side one and just one on side two, and its sound has often been compared to the most explorative works of Syd Barret -- however it must be pointed out that Schickert did not need any mind spreading substances to allow his sounds to float out of his mind & soul, they just came out in the most natural way. It will also appeal to fans of the echoed atmospheric guitar work of other Krautrock innovators such as Ash Ra Temple, Manuel Götsching or A.R. & The Machines, and some may find on the vocal passages certain resemblances to Damo Suzuki on Cans Tago Mago era. The Wah Wah reissue is limited to 500 vinyl LP copies only, housed in a quality sleeve that reproduces that of the original 1974 private pressing and featuring a 4 page insert with liners and photos, sound remastered at Eastside mastering Berlin.

"Bureau B reissues Günter Schickerts album Überfällig, originally released in 1979 on Sky Records. 180 gram pressing. "No sooner had electronic music broken through in Germany, principally aligned in the two schools of Düsseldorf and Berlin, than Günter Schickert also began his first musical experiments. Although GAM, the group he founded in 1973, did not then release a record, he did issue his first solo effort, Samtvogel, a year later -- an album which was eagerly snapped up and re-released by the Brain label. It would take five years for Sky Records to release his next LP, entitled Überfällig (trans. "Overdue"), which proved to be the last for a number of years. This album, as its German title suggests, was long overdue. Günter Schickert had developed his own unique, forward-looking type of music, assuming an exceptional position in the concert of German electronics. In spite of the clearly discernible influence of music from the so-called Berlin school (Tangerine Dream, Ash Ra Tempel etc.), Schickert is anything but a copycat. Schickert concentrated on pursuing his own ideas and pushing the boundaries of his remarkable aural creations. He is at pains to emphasize that, unlike almost all of his contemporaries, he did not use any synthesizers; his instruments are the electric guitar, his own studio with a multi-track tape machine and a comfortable arsenal of effects. Similar experiments had also been attempted by Manuel Göttsching (Inventions For Electric Guitar) and Achim Reichel (A.R. & Machines: Die Grüne Reise), but without stretching the multifaceted nature of their music to the point of microtonality, as Schickert dared to do on Überfällig. His own take on minimalism places him closer to the likes of Steve Reich and Glen Branca, free from the reach of Klaus Schulze and Tangerine Dream. Schickerts use of concrete sounds and his completely autonomous way of working in his own studio presaged a stage of development more readily associated with the early 1980s. In 1979, the album was a statement of a virtuosic outsider, a guitarist and sound sculptor whose musical visions transgressed the level of expectation of a potential audience, detached from the electronic mainstream.

"Bureau B reissues Günter Schickerts album Überfällig, originally released in 1979 on Sky Records. "No sooner had electronic music broken through in Germany, principally aligned in the two schools of Düsseldorf and Berlin, than Günter Schickert also began his first musical experiments. Although GAM, the group he founded in 1973, did not then release a record, he did issue his first solo effort, Samtvogel, a year later -- an album which was eagerly snapped up and re-released by the Brain label. It would take five years for Sky Records to release his next LP, entitled Überfällig (trans. "Overdue"), which proved to be the last for a number of years. This album, as its German title suggests, was long overdue. Günter Schickert had developed his own unique, forward-looking type of music, assuming an exceptional position in the concert of German electronics. In spite of the clearly discernible influence of music from the so-called Berlin school (Tangerine Dream, Ash Ra Tempel etc.), Schickert is anything but a copycat. Schickert concentrated on pursuing his own ideas and pushing the boundaries of his remarkable aural creations. He is at pains to emphasize that, unlike almost all of his contemporaries, he did not use any synthesizers; his instruments are the electric guitar, his own studio with a multi-track tape machine and a comfortable arsenal of effects. Similar experiments had also been attempted by Manuel Göttsching (Inventions For Electric Guitar) and Achim Reichel (A.R. & Machines: Die Grüne Reise), but without stretching the multifaceted nature of their music to the point of microtonality, as Schickert dared to do on Überfällig. His own take on minimalism places him closer to the likes of Steve Reich and Glen Branca, free from the reach of Klaus Schulze and Tangerine Dream. Schickerts use of concrete sounds and his completely autonomous way of working in his own studio presaged a stage of development more readily associated with the early 1980s. In 1979, the album was a statement of a virtuosic outsider, a guitarist and sound sculptor whose musical visions transgressed the level of expectation of a potential audience, detached from the electronic mainstream.

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

"Volume 3 in the ongoing Japanese Avant-Garde Cassette Reissue Series. The 80s and early 90s saw a great deal of fascinating and exciting material released on cassette in the Tokyo underground. While some of the more noise-oriented stuff enjoyed a modicum of international distribution, the avant-garde material generally did not. This series, whose first release was Iro / Tamafuri (PSFD-180), aims to rescue the best of this material from historical oblivion. Schitosoma Japonica (AKA Nihon Juketsu Kyuchu) were a cracked avant-garde, recording-only offshoot of the freeform rock band Amanita. Formed around 1990, the group lived a communal existence in Saitama, on the northern borders of Tokyo, experimenting with music, magic and psychological experiments. Our basic performance style was completely freeform, utilizing prepared instruments and rejecting regular rhythms and melodic development. Our abiding themes were communication with the afterlife/cosmos and the manifestation of paranormal accidents. We would jam endlessly until our performance space was filled with the signs of blood and feverish becomings. For us, performance was a kind of ritual. The group released a clutch of barely distributed cassettes in tiny editions. This CD compiles the best of them, sifting through the detritus of a technological society to float between noise, drone and ritualized avant-garde gestures. Eight tracks, fifty-four minutes. Liner notes in English and Japanese." -Alan Cummings

“In 2013 I was living in California working as programmer and would talk to our friend Eric (I owe this formulation to Rachelle Rahme: http://michaelpollard.net/fqw/rachelle-rahme-our-friend-eric.pdf) on the phone every few days – hes always liked talking on the phone and I liked it then because I could take breaks from work and it was also nice to talk with our friend who was living in New York, where I had just recently left, but where most of my thoughts that were not related to work continued to be. He left a year and a half before I did just after the beginning of our final semester at school. Hed returned to the city to finish school shortly after I left to go to work. Now I am living in New York and he is in Chicago. From August 2014 to October 2015 we were both living in New York. On one of our phone calls he talked about an idea for art production that involved recording all his phone calls. At the time he had been writing these poems: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0Bw9NkmY9G3e4dzZjT2V0NXFDYW8&usp=drive_web and a lot of his calls would come directly after he had emailed a poem to me because he wanted feedback. I think that this CD comprised of all of the voicemails found on his phone dating from the years 2010-2015 is a response to that idea. “We have a calling to redeem weakness in the moment and to treat this indeterminate material as the solution to psychic stabilization,” he once said. Recently when I played him some recordings I had been working on he reminded me that I had expressed discomfort at his proposal to record all of his phone calls, so he did not do it. As someone who would talk to him on the phone every few days while I was on a break from work I was naturally uncomfortable with this idea because of a concern that it would alter the way that I would communicate with him. I know that his poems had altered the way that I corresponded with him through email and text and the nature of communication over the phone seemed in that sense less productive – over the phone communication could occur with our friend about art and life without concern for the immediacy with which the one could be interpolated through the other. The voicemails that are found on a phone are the result of an undirected editing process over time and the production of an album from them is the result of an automatic export process – a found form. I like to think about the voicemails in relation to our friends bag sculptures and poems. What is the bag? We say: a vessel, something of the kind that holds something else within it. He reminds me that in this context it may be fruitful to make reference to Dieter Roths “Flat Waste”, the various vagaries of life, self-portraiture, and auto-biography.” -Michael Pollard, June 2016.

Title: Kamasutra
Format: Double LP
Label: Crippled Dick Hot Wax

Price: $19.00
"Crippled Dick Hot Wax presents Kamasutra -- an unreleased soundtrack from 1968 composed and recorded by Irmin Schmidt and The Inner Space. No overlap in content with the other recent Inner Space release, Agilok & Blubbo, released by Wah Wah Records earlier in 2009. Better late than never? A good four decades after its making, a rare gem is up for release: the soundtrack to Kobi Jaegers erotic and educational epic Kamasutra: Consummation Of Love. A precursor to Krautrock pioneers Can, Schmidts 1968 recording assembles Cans original line-up -- Michael Karoli, Jaki Liebezeit and Malcolm Mooney -- who later went on to craft the bands seminal debut, Monster Movie. The film Kamasutra: Consummation Of Love switches between India and Germany and stars Bruno Dietrich and Barbara Schöne. A prime example of late-1960s German erotica and the so-called sexual revolution, it liberated the subject of sex from dingy red light cinemas and whisked it away to the exotic Far East, to the realm that -- more than a millennium earlier -- had spawned the erotic teachings of the Kamasutra. Fast-forward to the present day, and you will find the films well-intentioned, in parts pedagogical approach bristling with (un)intentional comedy. Many bands and composers from the late-1960s were intrigued by Eastern philosophy and influenced by sounds of the Orient. Besides several laid-back, percussive instrumentals laced with flutes and sitars, the soundtrack also features three vocal tracks: "Im Hiding My Nightingale" (sung by Margareta Juvan), "There Was A Man" (sung by Malcolm Mooney) and "Im Around You Everyday" (sung by Michael Karoli). Kamasutra was mastered from the original analog tapes by Calyx and is available as a CD digipack and limited gatefold double vinyl. Before Irmin Schmidt founded the now-legendary German band Can in 1968, he received a formal musical education and studied composition, piano, conducting and music ethnology. Amongst others his teachers were Karlheinz Stockhausen and Ligeti. Between 1962 and 1969 he conducted numerous orchestras, including his own compositions. During this period, he also composed music for various film and theater productions. Between 1969 and 1978, he worked exclusively with Can (in 2003 they received the prestigious ECHO Lifetime Achievement Award)." - Crippled Dick Hot Wax.




Artist: SCHMIDT, DANIEL
Title: In My Arms, Many Flowers
Format: LP
Label: Recital
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Recital is proud to publish the first album of American Gamelan composer Daniel Schmidt (b. 1942). Schmidt, who emerged in the Bay Area music scene in the 1970s, wove the threads of traditional Eastern Gamelan music together with American Minimalism (repetitive music). Schmidt was (and is still) a prime figure in the development of American Gamelan music – studying and collaborating with Lou Harrison, Jody Diamond, and Paul Dresher. He currently is a teacher at Mills College, teaching instrument building.

The recordings on Flowers date from 1978 – 1982, selected directly from Schmidt’s personal cassette archive. It holds two studio tracks, along with two live performances. The first track, Dawn (commissioned by composer John Adams), employs an early digital sampler provided by Pauline Oliveros. It holds the sound of a string quartet. The nature of this piece is breathtaking, an ocean of strings pulsing beneath the gliding bells of the gamelan – such a lovely interplay. Furthermore, the title track, Flowers, features the addition of a rebab, a traditional bowed instrument, which reels through the piece, netted and taught. The final two works are strictly gamelan compositions. Ghosts is a a dynamic piece; rife with dexterous euphoria- it well displays the skillset of the percussionists heard on the LP. The closing work, Faint Impressions, is a somber elegy. Demonstrating the fragility and grace possible with the gamelan; sounding almost as an evening piano sonata. This is album is unique document from an under-represented movement of American New Music. An account of the curious beauty and woven emotions hidden within resonating pieces of metal. Includes a 9″x9″ 12-page pamphlet of program notes & score excerpts." - Recital.

180 gram vinyl. Comes with a CD of the album. "Not long after Hans-Joachim Roedelius (Cluster, Harmonia) and Stefan Schneider (To Rococo Rot, Kreidler, Mapstation) had released their first album Stunden, accompanied by a few live shows in 2011, Eric Satie and Brian Eno were quoted as the great inspiration for their musical collaboration. Fine references no doubt, one having invented musique dameublement, and the other having refined it into ambient music 80 years later. Yet Tiden does not sit easily in either camp. This is neither tasteful decor (à la Satie), nor is it electronic-auditory space-filler (à la Eno), gazing towards infinity. The short duration of the 13 pieces is enough to discount either genre. Better to consider these as concentrated, inspired études, carefully thought through and in no way random or sketchy. With cheerful gravitas, the two artists create absolute music -- music which desires only to be itself, without ulterior effects and with the declared intent of involving the listener in his emotional, inventive game. Perhaps Franz Schuberts moments musicaux would be a more suitable citation. The lightness and atmospheric intimacy of this music reveal Roedelius (grand piano, synthesizer) and the decades younger Schneider (Elektronik) as musicians who understand how to listen to one another and improvise on each others ideas immediately. The result is a lively, relentless interplay of great composure, more surprising than any tide could be, as precise calendars exist for tidal flows. Roedelius can already look back on an adventuresome career in music. Schneider has also prospered through exciting decades in contemporary pop. This is the second time their paths have crossed. Tiden keeps the promise which their first album made -- genial contemporary music from two artists who are as one in heart and soul. And when Roedelius steps on the pedal of his grand piano, well, it squeaks a little." -Asmus Tietchens

“Modern Silence present a reissue of Musical Offering, originally released in 1990. Features works by Oleg Buloshkin, Sofia Gubaidulina, Edward Artemiev, Edison Denisov and Alfred Schnittke. From the original liner notes: "(...) Please, try to imagine a score sounding by itself without a conductor, an orchestra even without musical instruments. This magic is possible by using the musical synthesizer, ANS. ANS is an instrument with which a composer can not only create but even draw his music without notes and orchestra. A Soviet scientist Evgeny Murzin spent about 20 years creating this apparatus which can join together three processes: music creation, recording and performing. All these processes are rather complicated. You can see the twinkling of different lamps, the rotation of grooved discs made of glass - notes are cut on a glass disc covered with a special layer; The drawings on the glass are sounding notes. To listen to the drawn picture you should press the button and a wonderful transformation will begin. Murzin dedicated his apparatus to Alexander Nikolayevich Scriabin, thats why he called it ANS. Scriabin, the creator of the Poem of Ecstasy, used in his works a highly chromatic, new type of harmonic style designed to express his beliefs, views and wishes. Soviet music lovers already know some recordings made on ANS from the films Into Space, Solaris (1972), Mirror (1975), Siberiade (1979) and others. Works of well-known Soviet composers E. Artemiev, O. Buloshkin, E. Denisov, S. Gubaidulina, A. Schnittke featured on this LP were recorded at the Electronic Music Studio (...)" - Modern Silence.

"On the Red Album Rot, Conrad Schnitzler laid down the direction his musical artistry would take. His second solo , The Blue Album Blau, originally released in 1974, offered confirmation of his intent. Maybe the "Red" and "Blue" tracks were recorded in the same session. The structure, sound and timbre of both LPs are so similar as to suggest that this was the case (an unverified assumption nevertheless!). Far more important than this historical pedantry is the fact that Schnitzler included two brand-new compositions on Blau which followed on seamlessly from the previous album. Quite simply, he had found his way, a course from which he would not stray as long as he lived. The so-called Berlin School (Berliner Schule) -- with Conrad Schnitzler one of their number -- had developed its own style of minimalist music. Clearly distinct from Anglo-American pop music, and no less removed from the minimalist art music of Steve Reich or Philip Glass, the focus here was on electronics and elementary rhythmics. The Berlin musicians showed no great interest in instrumental or vocal virtuosity, nor were they in thrall to exuberant interleaving of rhythm. With the aid of synthesizers and studio technology, they were bent on breaking into territory hitherto considered the province of a privileged elite, clouded in mystery and secrecy, resonating with uncharted sounds and noise. Blau is an archetypal example of this very phenomenon. Courage, the pioneering spirit and artistic brilliance can be detected in each part of the albums two infinite sequences. Inspired by Joseph Beuys, Schnitzler propagated those very tones beyond the musical realm, detached from tradition, the only tones capable of catalyzing the utterly stagnant pop music and new music scene of the day, injecting them with fresh impulses. Questions of harmony, melody and strict form were well and truly rejected by Schnitzler. His aural crystals shine like pearls on a string. Schnitzler uses his ropes of pearls to weave new, fantastic patterns which constantly shift like kaleidoscopes to reveal unexpected facets; they are sign-posts to spatial and temporal infinity. Schnitzlers style was really too idiosyncratic ever to set a precedent, but he was, and still is, one of the most significant inspirations for pop music in more recent times. Includes a printed innersleeve with notes from Asmus Tietchens. 180 gram vinyl." -Bureau B.

Schnitzler uses his ropes of pearls to weave new, fantastic patterns which constantly shift like kaleidoscopes to reveal unexpected facets; they are sign-posts to spatial and temporal infinity. Schnitzlers style was really too idiosyncratic ever to set a precedent, but he was, and still is, one of the most significant inspirations for pop music in more recent times.

Title: Con 3
Format: LP
Label: Bureau B
Country: Germany
Price: $26.00
"180 gram LP version. This album saw Conrad Schnitzler head further in the direction of pop music. Like Consequenz, Con 3 (1981) is a collaborative effort with Wolfgang Seidel, alias Sequenza. Con 3 is a really odd mixture of numerous ingredients which Schnitzler was capable of combining with dexterity and taste. His musical handwriting is immediately apparent in the foreground. Effervescent electronic sequences can be heard on all nine pieces, coming from somewhere and appearing to go wherever -- this is Schnitzler alright, this is his musical utopia. Then Wolfgang Seidel, formerly drummer with Ton Steine Scherben: an ideal partner for Schnitzler when it came to programming rhythm machines and sequencers for a minimalistic mesh. Another ingredient in Con 3 is undoubtedly German new wave (Neue Deutsche Welle, NDW). How could it not have touched Schnitzler? He lived and worked in Berlin! Above all, his succinct, absurd-surrealist lyrics would have suited many a protagonist of NDW. In this respect, Schnitzler revealed two hitherto hidden talents: his delivery of lyrics written by himself was both precise and incredibly assured. The fourth component of Con 3 is without question the character in the background, Peter Baumann. As producer and sound engineer, he was to Schnitzler what Conny Plank had been for Cluster and Harmonia and many others. His gentle, discreet impulses, his immense know-how with regard to modern studio technology and his perennial enthusiasm could be detected in all of the productions he created in his Paragon Studio. Years of working with Tangerine Dream honed his studio experience and his intuitive flair for electronic experiments. Those like Schnitzler who were able to work in the Paragon Studio were in exceptionally good hands. There could hardly be a more fertile alliance. Con 3 might have sounded rather disconcerting to Schnitzler listeners at the time. He had long since nailed his colors to the mast of the art scene (Fluxus, Beuys, performance art etc.) and now dared to attempt a balancing act between the high artistic aspirations of the avant-garde and the more entertainment-driven nature of pop music. Not for the first time, perhaps, but particularly emphatically on this album. Many had tried their luck at this tour de force and failed, not least because they lacked the necessary credibility. Not Schnitzler. He remained true to himself, and hence retained his credibility, integrating his new experiences and information resources wisely and creatively into his idiosyncratic and unmistakable music." -Asmus Tietchens.

"Conrad Schnitzler was a central figure in the development of electronic and experimental music in Germany since the end of the 60s. In fact he was co-founder of the Zodiak Club in Berlin in 1968, where Agitation Free used to play intermedia shows, he also took part in the recording of Tangerine Dream 1st record Electronic Meditation (with Edgar Froese and Klaus Schulze). Then he recorded with Hans-Joachim Roedelius and Dieter Moebius as Kluster, two key records: Klopfzeichen and Kluster zwei-Osterei (after he left Moebius and Roedelius continue to record as Cluster). Founded the Eruption project, an open band for many musicians (including Manuel Gottsching), various secret performances (such the ones in the furnace room of his house in Berlin). The recording on Qbico LP pre-dates the legendary record Rot (rec. April 1973), which was part of the colored series records: Gelb, Grun, Blau, Schwarz. In fact in 1972 Schnitzler toured for the exhibition Scene 72 and in London he bought the recently born Synthie A (which was being produced near London) and gave a concert at the German Institute (he eventually bring back to Germany another Synthie A for the band Kraftwerk). The music from this concert is really raw and wild, with the instrument frequencies pushed to the limits (its much more close to the classic music of concrete masters, such as Xenakis, Parmegiani, Henry, Schaeffer, then to his cosmique electronic records, such as Rot for example). A mind-blowing performace from one of the greatest sound illusionist of all time." - QBICO.

Price: $26.00
LP version on 180 gram vinyl. "Conrad Schnitzler is as unpredictable as he is true to himself. If this sounds paradoxical, he reconfirmed the assertion in 1987 with an album which posed many questions and offered few answers -- his music more extraordinary than ever. The indefatigable Schnitzler still leaves anyone listening to Congratulacion today rather baffled. Those well-acquainted with his music might search in vain for familiar landmarks. Instead, new and unexpected features can be heard, unlike anything in Schnitzlers previous works. The reason for the albums uniqueness lies in the technical advancements of electronic music-making. Schnitzler never shied away from any kind of innovation. On Gold (BB 150CD/LP) and Silver (BB 149CD/LP) he had masterfully deployed a new Palm synthesizer. Congratulacion saw Schnitzler introduce the Yamaha CX 5, a combination of digital and analog sound generation, lending the album its distinctive quality. This machine enabled him to program the most complex of rhythms and strange harmonies and, if necessary, completely unforeseen melodies. 21.8.86 (track 8), for example, could easily have been composed by his old Kluster colleague Hans-Joachim Roedelius. This must have given him, this oh-so rigorous concept artist, no end of pleasure. Why else would he have composed 22 short pieces with the aid of the CX 5 instead of fewer, lengthier tracks?" --Asmus Tietchens; Features six bonus tracks and an essay by Asmus Tietchens." - Bureau B.

Price: $26.00
180 gram vinyl. "Conrad Schnitzler is undoubtedly one of the founding fathers of German electronica. And his son, Gregor Schnitzler, matched the fathers extraordinary level of creative output. They appear to have settled any musical differences amicably. After all, how else could they have shared an LP released by Conrad Schnitzler himself? One half of Conrad & Sohn features music by Conrad Schnitzler, the other, his son Gregor. Two mini-albums on one disc, so to speak. An ideal opportunity to compare them. Judging by the similarities in sound, Gregor clearly had access to his fathers music equipment, but the way he uses electronics and his voice could not be more different. Industrial (e.g. Cabaret Voltaire) influences are apparent. The dry minimalism of German new wave (NDW) also left its mark on him. A sense of the end of days in some places gives way to highly-charged hysteria in others. For young, modern musicians in the frontline city of West Berlin, a mix of depression and anger was the natural prerequisite for their uncomplicated, unsentimental and yet emotional music. And the "No Future" claim had not yet lost its validity. Gregor unequivocally took sides; he was with the young. Conrads music on this album also shows some signs of contemporary influence. As a veteran of the avant-garde and an experienced performance artist, he adopted a different aesthetic stance to that of his son, Gregor. Leaving the bleak, cryptic text of the first track aside, Conrad speaks to the knowledgeable listener in a familiar musical language: sequencer shapes with no end and no beginning, then an uncommonly humorous miniature with a Donald Duck voice, followed by electronic particles travelling from anywhere to who-knows-where. Total abstraction. Father and son certainly offer up drastically opposing musical concepts to our ears." -Asmus Tietchens

Title: Consequenz
Format: CD
Label: Bureau B
Country: Germany
Price: $18.00
"Commercial Schnitzler? How quickly, how prematurely are opinions and judgements bandied about when an artist suddenly changes the form of his work. Conrad Schnitzler fell under such a cloud when, after 1978, his songs, for a time at least, did not exceed the catchy compactness of pop songs, while their harmonies and rhythms seemed to be drifting towards pop. Produced by Peter Baumann (Tangerine Dream) the Con (1978) album and the Auf dem schwarzen Kanal 12" EP (1980) ushered in this phase, and the private release of the Consequenz album, also in 1980 -- as the title suggests -- was the logical consequence. Consequenz is Schnitzlers first collaboration with another musician since the days of Kluster long before. In Wolfgang Seidel aka Wolf Sequenza, he found someone who not only understood the Schnitzler principle but was able to expand on it with his own input. Seidel, like Schnitzler, had started early with the development of an alternative language of music, away from the mainstream. Schnitzler actually went a step further: with the best educational intentions, he supplied a schematic drawing to go with Consequenz, illustrating in detail how his music functions, which instruments and equipment he used and how the various elements are interconnected. It is rare for an electronic artist to lay his cards quite so openly on the table, thus prompting the demystification of this new music. Consequenz conveys 12 remarkably short pieces. Remarkable in the sense that Schnitzlers early solo works (e.g. Rot and Blau) were characterized by unending sequences. Not only are the tracks even shorter than on Con (1978), their form has also shifted. Electronic drums can be heard, along with an electric guitar in places; Schnitzler and Seidel sculpt rhythmic-harmonic structures with an analog sequencer, blended with harmonies to create a somewhat unwieldy form of pop music. Little musical motifs are played without really becoming melodies capable of underpinning bona fide songs. The influence of the German new wave (NDW) may also be detected, but not enough to determine the style of Consequenz. The dozen tracks on the album remain firmly rooted in Schnitzlers sonic universe, each an individual facet of his infinitely shimmering aural cascades. And, naturally, Consequenz is electronic pop music, lacking only the commercial added value which was of little interest to Schnitzler anyway -- he didnt give a damn." -Asmus Tietchens

Title: Contempora
Format: CD
Label: Bureau B
Country: Germany
Price: $18.00
"Contempora (1981) is a sort of collection of sketches, reflecting Conrad Schnitzlers inexhaustible creative powers in condensed form. Like light refracting through a multiple prism, shapes and colors constantly change, backgrounds shift through brightness and darkness. Each track on the album could easily double or triple in length without relinquishing any of its magic or indeed becoming boring. Schnitzler grants us the merest glimpses into his diverse soundscapes and sonic armories. He opens one door ever so slightly, only to close it again and open another for just a few minutes. Improvised sonic comets shimmer over Schnitzlers inimitable sequencer patterns, fleeting melodies fade away. Everything happens at breathtaking speed, miniatures without frames or tangible borders. In the early 80s Schnitzler worked primarily with the EMS Synthi A and Korg MS 10 synthesizers, an analog sequencer and analog rhythm machine. All in all, this was neither a particularly complex nor exotic array of equipment for the period. Many electronic artists used these inexpensive instruments, or something similar. Nevertheless, Schnitzler succeeded in setting himself apart from others in the fraternity, in both sonic and compositional terms. Not so much gripped by the need to occupy a unique position, he was simply unable and unwilling to divert from his creative path. Contempora again underlines Schnitzlers noble ethos." -Asmus Tietchens.

“Bureau B present Filmmusik 1, a selection from Conrad Schnitzlers archive. In Conrad Schnitzlers sprawling archive, there are two tapes marked Filmmusik 1975 A and Filmmusik 1980 B. It is hard to say which videos this music belongs to, particularly as the pieces have been left untitled. Perhaps there isnt really any film material at all. The dates are of no great help either, since the tapes feature the same tracks, albeit in varying degrees of quality. Filmmusik 1 presents an initial selection of these finds, presented to Bureau B by Schnitzlers musical partner for many years and guardian of the archive, Wolfgang Seidel(Populäre Mechanik, Ton Steine Scherben). The tracks reveal much about how Schnitzler worked. He recorded individual tracks on cassettes and then combined them, also using them live in his so-called cassette concerts. Thus, there are recognizable recurring "melodies", sometimes fragmented, in different places. Some tracks have the same bass loop and rhythm, only the sounds and effects have changed. The music on theFilmmusik tapes is extraordinarily accessible for Schnitzler: hypnotic bass lines, stoic drum rhythms, dark drones, crystalline shards of melody. Wolfgang Seidel talks more about Schnitzlers life and work in the liner notes.” - Bureau B.

"Bureau B present part two of their Filmmusik double release. In 1975, Conrad Schnitzler recorded various pieces of music to accompany films which had yet to be made. Fittingly, he labelled this collection of songs Filmmusik. Only one of the tracks - "Gute Fahrt" ("Nice Journey") - would ultimately be paired with a film, now traceable on the internet for all to see. The music is included on Part 1 of Bureau Bs Filmmusik double release (BB 244CD/LP, 2016), erroneously entitled "02/1980". Why the incorrect title? The tapes, which served as source material for the labels two Filmmusik releases, were copied onto two data carriers then mislabeled. To be precise, one label was accurate - Filmmusik 1975 A - but the other, Filmmusik 1980 B, was not. All the tracks had been created in the same year, so it should have read "1975 B". In the absence of actual song titles, Bureau B simply gave them numbers. Not knowing of the above mentioned film at the time, the label called the track "02/1980", when they should have called it "02/1975 B" or, as they would later discover, "Gute Fahrt". Shortly after, Bureau B released Filmmusik 1 and Jin Kawai, curator of the official Schnitzler website, contacted the label with the information. In 2009, whilst sorting through reels of film (some shot by Schnitzler himself) and music to upload to the site, Kawai was particularly drawn to one piece entitled "Gute Fahrt". Were there any more tracks like this? Schnitzler told him there were and sent Kawai all of the other recordings. One half of Filmmusik 2 comprises tracks from the 1975 series, the other half is a 23-minute piece with the title "Lichtpunkte und schwarze Zeichen". This music was actually written for a film in 1978. The label was delighted to find it in 2015 and enthusiastically searched the Schnitzler archives for more of the same. This led the Bureau B to the 1975 recordings and the rest is history." - Bureau B.

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

The yellow album, for example, was issued on vinyl in 1981 by René Block in Berlin on his art gallery label (Edition Block). Schnitzler had previously released records on various other labels. The music on the yellow album had, in fact, already been on the market as The Black Cassette in 1974, although the production run was probably limited. The yellow album is subtitled 12 pieces from the year 1974, pointing to Schnitzlers novel approach. Whereas his prior works always lasted for the whole side of an LP or tape, the tracks here are shorter. Also new: Schnitzler goes beyond automatic sonic processes on a number of tracks, using his keyboards to integrate something approaching melodic improvisations played by hand into his musical cosmos. Schnitzlers otherwise crystalline, inorganic world of art is thus enriched by an almost human, organic element. An amiable breeze wafts through the music of the yellow album, thankfully miles away from the sentimental platitudes which run through off-the-shelf ambient music of the 1980s. The yellow album is not only amiable from start to finish, it also documents an important stage in Schnitzlers musical development. Belatedly released on LP (1981) and lacking in discographical detail, this aspect is easily overlooked. On careful listening, as Schnitzler connoisseurs will also realize instantly, this album reveals itself to be an important milestone, illuminating a clear path into the future. Schnitzler had begun to free himself from the constraints of orthodox conceptual art, advancing into the wide open spaces of uncharted musical territory." --Asmus Tietchens.

"Bureau B presents a song collection from Conrad Schnitzlers archive, recorded between 1976 and 1978, originally released by the small German label Marginal Talent in 2003. In the comprehensive canon of Schnitzler releases, the music on the Gold album stands out a mile in every respect. Judged on the sound alone, there is little to suggest that the material was recorded as long ago as the 1976 to 1978 period. There is more at play here than two tape recorders, analog synthesizers and sequencers. Digital keyboards and computer-aided musical progressions are in evidence. With its multi-channel complexity, perfect equalizing, a translucent depth of focus and the brilliance of its signals, Gold could easily have been recorded today, some 35 years later. Alas, Schnitzler can no longer let us in on the secret of his recording process, nor which equipment he deployed in achieving this feat. It is fair to surmise that this sound owed much to the fact that Schnitzler was often in the company of his friends from Tangerine Dream. Their equipment was always state-of-the-art -- and Schnitzlers technical expertise allowed him to take full advantage thereof. As if the tonal quality is not astounding enough, the compositions are guaranteed to dumbfound even the most enlightened Schnitzler listeners. Stuctured like a symphony in various movements, utterly abstract atonal passages are followed by solid sequences of rhythm and harmony, as energetic as Cluster, yet equally evocative of 1980s electronic pop music. Once again, his execution bordering on perfection, Schnitzler has pulled off the ultimate balancing trick between pop and so-called serious music. Liner notes by Asmus Tietchens." - Bureau B.

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

Title: Kollektion 05: Conrad Schnitzler Compiled and Assembled by Thomas Fehlmann
Format: LP
Label: Bureau B
Country: Germany
Price: $26.00
“Things come full circle. In 1976 Thomas Fehlmann arrives in Hamburg to study art at the Hamburg University of Fine Arts. In 1979 he attends a guest lecture by Conrad Schnitzler, who demonstrates how the "extended definition of art" established by Joseph Beuys can be applied to music. This proves to be a crucial element in Fehlmanns decision to become a musician. And now, in 2015, over 35 years later, Fehlmann has compiled the fifth installment in Bureau Bs Kollektionseries, arranging, in uniquely harmonious fashion, 16 pieces from the early 1980s by the man who broadened his horizons, Conrad Schnitzler. The gateway to Schnitzlers sonic cosmos has been flung wide open. Conrad Schnitzler (1937-2011), composer and concept artist, was one of the most important representatives of Germanys electronic music avant-garde. A student of Joseph Beuys, he founded Berlins legendary Zodiak Free Arts Lab, a subculture club, in 1967/68, was a member ofTangerine Dream (together with Klaus Schulze and Edgar Froese) and Kluster (with Dieter Moebius and Hans-Joachim Roedelius), and released countless solo albums. Thomas Fehlmann rose to prominence in the seminal band Palais Schaumburg with Holger Hiller. Their debut album in 1981 was a milestone in German post-punk music. In 1988 Fehlmann founded the Teutonic Beats label and in 1990 he became a member of The Orb. He has played an important role in Berlins electronic and club scenes ever since, as a musician, producer, remixer, and DJ.” - Bureau B.

"I have strung together various pieces from Conrad Schnitzlers white period -- the CON series -- in a seamless arrangement which creates its own state of dramatic tension. The tracks retain their original form and tempo. This is not a study in montage. I have restricted myself to picking the right moment to move from one piece to the next, cross-fading. Okay, I did edit one track... I was looking for a form which would condense Conrad Schnitzlers versatility, his inventiveness and wit into a single journey. The new running order adds a certain friction to the aura of each as new connections are made. My choices were musical, not chronological, bathing these works from the early 1980s in new sensuous light. It is quite remarkable to see how intensely the sparks still fly. Preparing this collection closes an elementary circle in my life, without which I may have followed a completely different path." - Thomas Fehlmann.

"There are not too many names that get us more excited here at AZ HQ than Conrad Schnitzlers. Since the mid-1960s, Schnitzler has been one of the undisputed masters of electronic experimentation, and his name is synonymous with Krautrocks innovation and defiant musical vision. A prolific solo artist, he also founded Kluster (later Cluster) with Dieter Moebius and Hans-Joachim Roedelius, was an early collaborator with seminal Kosmische acts Tangerine Dream and Klaus Schulze, and, in 1967, founded the Zodiak Free Arts Lab in West Berlin, an experimental performance space designed for the exploration of musical and political freedom (where Tangerine and Klaus both played). So, for previously unreleased material from Conrad to become available is is an exciting affair indeed-- especially for those of us not lucky enough to have been in the crowds those nights in the 70s. Further Records have done just that, taking a previously unreleased 1972 performance from the vault and giving it a double LP pressing. As Conrad explains the origins of the performance: "I was invited to be part of an art exhibition, Szene 72 (it means 1972). This was happening in Stuttgart, London and Hamburg. From the London performance there was some music that was recorded to tape, but all this old cheap tape-material does not run on a tape player anymore. This, what you have, this has survived." -Further. "This is a precious artefact of a man fully in control, and ahead of his game." -Daniel Gottlieb, Altered Zones

"There was a particular type of artist who could only have emerged in the legendary early 1970s. Few musicians fit the bill better than Conrad Schnitzler (Tangerine Dream, Kluster). Revolution, pop art and Fluxus created a climate which engendered unbridled artistic and social development. Radical utopias, excessive experimentation with drugs, ruthless (in a positive way) transgression of aesthetic frontiers were characteristic of the period. The magic words were "subculture," "progressivity" and "avant-gardism." West Berlin, with its unique political status, was a crucible of turbulence. Founded in 1968, Zodiak Free Arts Lab was the ultimate point of convergence for subculture in West Berlin, with Conrad Schnitzler the driving force behind it. It was also here that Tangerine Dream and Kluster first met up to perform in public. Bureau B presents Rot (The "Red" Album) from 1973, Schnitzlers first solo LP.

"A collection from Conrad Schnitzlers archive, recorded between 1974 and 1975, originally released on LP only in 2009. Contains the complete original material (three more tracks than the 2009 release) ... Just when you think you have grasped Conrad Schnitzlers master plan, every time you kid yourself into predicting what you are about to hear, the next record comes along to prove you wrong. Motorik is writ large throughout. Even the less rhythmic passages remain grounded, never drifting into absolute abstraction. A more or less distinct ostinato runs through each track, condensed into a complex tapestry of electronic surprises amidst Schnitzlers typical cascades of sound and flashes of noise. And so the journey to the most distant corner of Schnitzlers world begins. Majestic drones and tricky melodies fly past the listener. Is this still the music of Schnitzler, the conceptual artist? Yes, undoubtedly. His view or concept of art allowed him the freedom to experiment in all directions, a stroke of luck for the listener. The Silber (trans. Silver) album offers up a form of pop music preempting nothing, unrelated to anything else. Far more, it represents Schnitzlers unique and inimitable blueprint for a music of the future, music which still astounds when we hear it today, almost 40 years later -- and it poses the almost philosophical question, whether this future has already happened or is yet to happen? Schnitzler was not alone in daring to create future music in the 1970s; yet many visions of that era were short-lived and appear rather dusty today, even a little embarrassing. The "precious metal" albums, in contrast, escape the zeitgeist and are patently resistant to retromaniac constraints. Schnitzlers artistic and -- let us spell it out -- aesthetic autonomy celebrates a veritable victory here. Liner notes by Asmus Tietchens." - Bureau B.

"Nice box of great-sounding unreleased recordings from Schnitzlers vault. No recordings dates or additional information is included, but this is "cold, electronic sound" at its best."-FE. "Trigger Trilogy consists of three discs each selected from hundreds of hours of Schnitzlers private recordings. Each represents one of the few unique approaches that Schnitzler takes to recording, each uniquely identified and defined by Schnitzler. Within each of these recordings one can hear how Schnitzler influenced a generation of artists not only in Germany but in the world around and how hes brought those sounds into the modern day. Its also apparent in these recordings that Schnitzler is thoughtful and enlightened, a total pioneer floating freely in a world of sound. Trigger One consists of what Schnitzler calls his Solo Voices or Solo Electronics. This particular recording happens to be rhythmically-based electronic work. Recognizing that in traditional music the melodic line is subordinate to the ensemble leaving it no true impression of its own, Schnitzler has liberated the solo voice in his own music and given it its own vocation as noise, tone and sound. Trigger Two is what Schnitzler refers to as Free Concert Mix Solos. Trigger Three, the final disc in the Trigger Trilogy, is a Con-Cert. "-Important.

"Conrad Schnitzler is an early member of Tangerine Dream and a founding member of Kluster, along with Dieter Moebius and Hans-Joachim Roedelius, and his works will always be important. Ricardo Villalobos and Max Loderbauer were so fascinated by his album Zug (MINIMAL 001LP), that they immediately delivered two reshapes of this milestone of electronic music. Max Loderbauer is a veteran of the Berlin techno scene, who became known with his project Sun Electric. For his current project NSI and as a member of the Moritz Von Oswald Trio, Max Loderbauer enjoys a worldwide reputation. His great cooperation with Ricardo Villalobos for the legendary ECM label appeared in many "Best of 2011" lists. Ricardo Villalobos is one of the leading techno DJ/producer/musicians. He has influenced the scene for more than 15 years. The "Aktion" mix targets with 100% certainty on the dancefloor, but is also suited to wake you up in the morning. DJs need this 20-minute mix as a tool. The "Sorgenkind" mix is not for the mainfloor but for fans of the broken beats. Everybody who enjoyed the RE-ECM work of the two will love this 15-minute mix. Schnitzler/Loderbauer/Villalobos = dreamteam. Includes a download coupon with two amazing remixes by Stefan Betke aka Pole and Borngräber & Strüver." -M=Minimal.

Pyrolator, born Kurt Dahlke in 1958, cofounder of the legendary German label and publisher Ata Tak, member of various seminal post-punk bands including D.A.F. and Der Plan, has released solo albums under his artist name from 1979 on. The Con-Struct series has its roots in Schnitzlers daily excursions through the sonic diversity of his synthesizers. Finding exceptional sounds with great regularity, he preserved them for use in subsequent live performances and amassed a vast sound archive. When the Berlin-based m=minimal label reissued two Conrad Schnitzler albums in 2010 and 11 (MINIMAL 001LP, MINIMAL 004LP), label honcho Jens Strüver was granted access to this audio library. Strüver came up with the idea of constructing new compositions, not remixes, from the archived material. On completion of the first Con-Struct album (MINIMAL 007CD/LP), he decided to develop the concept into a series, with different electronic musicians invited into Schnitzlers unique world of sound. Andreas Reihse (Kreidler) was responsible for the second installment in 2013 (MINIMAL 014CD/LP), and now Strüver has chosen Pyrolator to assume Schnitzlers mantle. A few words from Pyrolator: "It was a great honour for me to be asked to curate an edition of the Con-Struct series. Conrads work is simply too important to turn down such an offer. The guidelines for the Con-Struct series require the curator to select individual tracks which Conrad had used in his live shows and rearrange them to create something new. I must admit, I could not resist the temptation to add one or two of my own ideas. The original tracks were so inspiring, I just had to. My prime objective was to present a side of Conrad which I had always heard in his music but one which often goes unnoticed: a darker, technoid side. In my opinion, Conrad has always been one of the great pioneers of classic Berlin techno music. I look forward to many more chapters in the Con-Struct collection. Conrads oeuvre is so extensive and so diverse that many more fascinating aspects await discovery.” - Bureau B.

My prime objective was to present a side of Conrad which I had always heard in his music but one which often goes unnoticed: a darker, technoid side. In my opinion, Conrad has always been one of the great pioneers of classic Berlin techno music. I look forward to many more chapters in the Con-Struct collection. Conrads oeuvre is so extensive and so diverse that many more fascinating aspects await discovery." - Bureau B.

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

"Re: People I Know is the first of the two long pieces that Klaus played during his Dusseldorf concert in 1977. Its similar to the highly valued piece that KS played around the same time in Brussels St. Michaels cathedral. Avec Arthur: During the lengthy 1979 tour, Klaus played a long solo piece that filled the first half of the concerts as usual. After the intermission, the singer Arthur Brown joined him for the second piece. This is one of those energetic second halves. Arthur could be, and was often, very high-spirited, very good, I dare say even excellent. As here, on the 25th of October 1979 in a youth club of the Belgian town of Liege. During the peaceful part after the break (and his famous roar). Arthur sings partly in French. Merveilleux! My diary reports: Small youth club, jam packed. Good concert. Crazy Nietzsche is loosely based on Klaus well-known Friedrich Nietzsche title from the X recording session. As on the X tracks, the drumming is by the great rhythm man Harald Grosskopf. First, Klaus recorded Haralds familiar solid pulse, and for the middle part - Asketische Ideale - he was asked to add some floor toms playing. As usual during that blooming Schulze era, also this track was recorded at the Panne-Paulen studio in Frankfurt. After listening to the music for the first time after many years, Klaus told me it must be a live recording because of the sound of the Korg PS 3300 that he only played in concerts not in a studio.

"Klaus Schulze recorded some of his more introspective works. Albums like Mirage, Dune, and Dig It saw a significant change in his style of playing and his way of composing. While Schulze was quickly expanding his collection of synthesizers, that ultimately had its effect on the outlook of the music and the possibilities of performing that in a more exquisite way. Play a track like Synthasy and notice that Schulze has come a long way since Timewind and Moondawn. On this 8th part of La Vie Electronique theres a selection of stuff that was archived beside his official albums in those years. A large part of this 3CD-set forms the appearance of concert recordings (made on a cheap, but stereo radio cassette recorder) from Klaus 1979 tour with singer Arthur Brown. Besides the recordings that made up three sides of his monumental Live album that was released in 1980, there were plenty of other versions available of the material that Schulze played during the fall of 1979. The late seventies/early eighties work of Klaus Schulze is often overlooked and underrated by many. Hearing the material featured on this 3CD-set, one can discover the other side of that particular period when analogue was still there, but digital was about to become the power to be." - Made In Germany

Title: Five Sound Installations
Format: DVDR
Label: XI
Country: USA
Price: $40.00
2007 release. "Five Sound Installations is a DVD-ROM (for Mac and PC) that contains five sound compositions generated in "real time" by a computer algorithm. The works are: "Room Piece Twenty-Four"; "Noema"; "Steiner Suite"; "Unintending"; "Scene." Sound Art, algorithmic composition, chance operations, multi-channel sound systems, immersive installations, computer music; these terms all intersect at a point defined by Michael J. Schumachers Five Sound Installations. Schumacher is a composer, curator (he runs Diapason, NYs only "sound art" gallery), and performer. His output at the time of this release includes five solo CDs, but these were by necessity adaptations of works designed for more or less "permanent" listening situations, in which auditors could explore various modes of listening within sound environments. These works were composed with installation settings in mind -- they had no "beginning-middle-end" (even out of order) in the traditional sense. For the CD releases, the pieces needed to be manipulated in various ways to accommodate the medium. A better way needed to be found. Schumacher has always been interested in creating algorithmic works that extend the boundaries of the genre, investing them with hundreds of constituent parts that form sonic mobiles in space and time. Now he presents the ambitious (and technically savvy) listener with a means to experience Schumachers installations in the home, through up to eight separate speaker channels and for as long as the computer keeps running. No question, this is not an iPod experience! For some, just understanding the reason for such a project will be difficult. But the composer and XI believe that the time is apt for challenging a complacent public and industry. This release, more than anything else, is a challenge to break boundaries in both content and distribution, a call for a new way of thinking about sound in the home, which is more than ever the predominant place for listening. NOTE: These compositions must be installed on a computer to be heard. Instructions are enclosed. Minimum system requirements: one gig processor speed, five gig free disc space; Mac OS 10.3 or Windows XP." - XI.

Title: Room Pieces
Format: Double CD
Label: XI
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
2003 release. “Much has been written to guide listeners through the course of a preconceived form. Although Michael J. Schumachers music is distinctly his own it has been inspired by David Tudor and Morton Feldman as well as La Monte Young. Like their music it is about hearing sounds in themselves, about allowing the ear to register sonorities and then the hearing imagination may go to work, navigating amongst temporal realities and imaginary spaces, negotiating between a sense of control and perceived randomness, stasis and movement, finitude and limitlessness, Schumacher thrives on those creative tensions. At its most personal and expansive his singular music has the capacity to convey "intimate immensity." Room Piece provides a unique solution and musical experience in reference to "the room." Generated by a specific method and possessing a decidedly emotional character, Room Piece is not merely "ambient music" but creates a bridge between the "eventfulness" heard in Cage-ian and serial music, and the new American drone music that has arisen intuitively to create the sound of a vibrant universe with rich interior activity.” - XI.

Title: Ant Farm
Format: LP
Label: Feeding Tube
Country: USA
Price: $24.00
"An incredible album of music, conjoining two different sonic aspects of Maines Strangeness. Big Blood are well known to fanciers of contemporary sub-underground sounds. The duo of Colleen Kinsella andCaleb Mulkerin have been conjuring up rural-experimental ghosts for over a decade. Feeding Tube has previously released their double LP set,Radio Valkyrie (FTR 103LP) to rapturous acclaim. Their music embodies the mysteries of the deep woods better than any other artist we can name. Elliott Schwartz, meanwhile, has been composing and playing brilliant (often keyboard based) music for decades. His 1973 duo album with saxophonist Marion Brown (released by Bowdoin College, where he has been based for many years), is often cited as one of the primest examples of a free jazz/avant classical hybrid. And all of his records are quite killer. This LP came together as the soundtrack for an exhibit calledAnt Farm, organized to showcase the work of Maine-based art quartet,The Ant Girls. This visual arts group included Ms. Kinsella and the lateDorothy "Deedee" Schwartz in its ranks, so perhaps this collab is less surprising than it might initially appear. But surprising or not, the work is an incredible syncretic fusion. Although there are certain instrumental parts we might ascribe to one artist or the other, as the music unwinds these divisions melt and become all-but-imaginary. The blend of Big Bloods psych-tinged free-folk improvisations and Schwartzs aleatory work on keys and percussion is a very righteous blast. 300 numbered copies exist on our planet. Dont delay." --Byron Coley, 2016. Individually numbered with silver foil stamps.

Title: Erda/Suite N
Format: LP

Country: Austria
Price: $23.00
“Erda (1972): "This piece illustrates my early research carried out in a professional composition studio. After studying every available tools and creating variably hybrid connections between them, I chose to compose several short sequences, each being the expression of a research based on a sonic manipulation and exploring a well defined sound hue. Besides, my background as a percussionist and a jazzman encouraged me to conduct a rhythmical study in each of these sequences. . . . The slightly raucous and acid texture of the “square” sounds, that can be heard in several movements, is a reminder of saxophone and muted brass sonorities, as used in contemporary jazz." The seven movements include "an evocation of the realm of insects," "stereotypical bird songs produced by the generators of the studio 54," "a tribute to the Goddess of Wisdom and the Earth in Wagners Das Rheingold and Siegfried," "rhythmical drumming figures such as those Kenny Clarke (aka Klook) used to teach me," and "a tribute to John Coltrane," among others.
Suite N (1982): "Commissioned by the Direction de la Musique and the Ina GRM. Composed in the Ina GRMs numerical composition studio with the assistance of Benedict Maillard and Yann Geslin. In a composition studio, musical research is never very far removed from madness. The first step is the initial work on the sound picked up by the microphone and the varieties of delirium that result from it: exaggerated amplification, inversion, transformation. Synthesizers and their crazy possibilities com next. The third step is the computer, one of the purest products of logic. . . . My intention in “Suite N” was, on the one hand, to use solely sounds produced by the computer either by direct synthesis (MUSIC V) or by sound treatment, and, on the other hand, to work with a definite form." - Recollection GRM.
"Jean Schwarz is an idiosyncratic figure in the world of electroacoustic music. With a dual background in jazz and ethnomusicology, he has crossed times and genres with an unwavering singularity, infusing improvisation, ballets or cinema with the art of acousmatics. “Erda” or “Suite N,” each in their own way, demonstrate Schwarzs unique propensity for exploring sound, its cross-fertilisations and its evocative power." - François Bonnet, Paris, 2015.

"Jean Schwarz joined the Groupe de Recherches Musicales in 1969. In the same year, he also worked as an engineer and researcher at the Centre National de Recherche Scientifique in the ethnomusicology department of the Musée de lHomme in Paris. He founded Celia Records in 1980 releasing a vast catalog of his own works as well as collaborations. Schwarz favors electronic sounds - the raw material from which he creates large architectural forms and vigorous sonic structures and takes inspiration from non-European and indigenous musical forms. Involving live instruments, he often combines a prerecorded tape with brilliant improvisations by jazz musicians. His compositions include works for concert performance (some purely acousmatic, others employing live instruments), for cinema (music for Jean-Luc Godard, Serge Moati, Michel Deville, Michel Léviant and Alain Resnais amongst others), dance (for the choreographers Carolyn Carlson, Dominique and Françoise Dupuy and Serge Campardon) and equestrian theatre for the French horse trainer Bartabas. This 2CD collection contains selections from six compositions focusing on Schwarzs theatre and multimedia work. "Year of the Horse" (1978), "Still Waters" (1986) and "Undici Onde" (1978) contain pieces for choreographer and dancer Carolyn Carlson. With performances premiering at lOpera de Paris, Teatre de Ville (Paris), and La Fenice in Venice, these scores give an in-depth insight into Schwarz and Carlsons collaborative process. Some scenes incorporate rhythmic or cyclical elements, field recordings, electronics, and others detail purely acoustic resonance. Each musical section relates closely with Carlsons expansive visual poetry. "LEnfance De Vladimir Kobalt" (1979) was written for set designer and playwright Petrika Ionecso and "Maison Rouge" (1980) for director Pierre Sala. Both works evoke a wonderfully filmic structure, while integrating key themes across each scenic palette. The earliest work in the set is "Fotoband" (1974), a 21-minute composition to specifically accompany a 76-meter visual installation piece by German artist Ekkehart Raumstrausch. During the exhibition, loudspeakers were placed every 15 yards to allow the music to be heard while moving horizontally along the painting. All compositions were originally issued as small edition LPs on Schwarzs own Celia Records, except "Undici Onde" and "Fotoband" which are previously unpublished and available here for the first time. Presented with fully remastered audio. Includes a 12-page booklet of photos, visuals and detailed notes by the composer. Year of the Horse and other electroacoustic works 1974-1986 collects nearly two-and-a-half hours of highly evocative surroundings from this early visionary of electroacoustic composition." - Robot.

Price: $16.00
"Siltbreeze is proud to announce the rerelease of the complete catalog from legendary Christchurch band (and Flying Nun alumnus) SCORCHED EARTH POLICY. From 1983-86, the group blackened the skies with a unique sound equal parts Southern no wave and post-apocalyptic surf, adding the trademark tinges of 60s garage / psych that coursed through the veins of every great Christchurch band from that era. Not that this should come as a surprise, as their membership was a veritable whos who of the citys finest musicians: PETER STAPLETON (VACUUM, PIN GROUP, TERMINALS), MARY HENEY (25 CENTS, SHALLOWS), BRIAN CROOK (MAX BLOCK, RENDERERS, TERMINALS), MICK ELBORADO (TERMINALS, SHALLOWS, GAS), ANDREA COCKS (MISSING PIECE PRODUCTIONS) and ANDREW DAWSON (DEDICATED HUMAN). During their existence, Scorched Earth Policy produced two 12-inch EPs for Flying Nun; their entire recorded output is presented here for the first time as one comprehensive LP, pressed in a limited edition of 500 copies. Includes digital download coupon." -Siltbreeze. Very highly recommended!

"If Jacno had been raped by Iggy Pop, missed the abortion, abandonned (sic) the child on the fringes of a Cronemberg movie; if this child survived, was kidnapped and sold as a sex slave to Alan Vega by Donna Summer, (just after releasing I Feel Love), escaped in the dark streets of a violent b-movie involving cops, militia, sweat, dirt, lizards with guns, and naked nubile women, he would feel like SCORPION VIOLENTE was THE music made for him. And eventually, he would end up killing both members of this band, and eat them, maybe calling them mummy while doing dirty things involving meat, broken records, body fluids and unheard-of orifices, most of them created for the occasion." -Scorpio Violente.

Featuring great, snarky Byron Coley liner notes, the LP collects home cassette recordings from between 1987 and 1995 that offer a fantastic aural bridge between the grunge-offcut, Northeast American, lo-fi sludge-rock scene of the very early 90s and what later became known as "New Weird America." Stylistically all over the place and beyond brilliant, this record represents the nascent weirdo mind of a Golden Lab Records that, at the time, didnt even know it would come to be.” - Golden Lab.

Previously issued as a double CD w/ book (BASTA 9078). This vinyl edition is presented as three LPs, each packaged and in its own full color gatefold jacket, all shrinkwrapped together (the LPs are not available individually). Contains all 69 tracks found on the CD version. "Over two hours of Raymond Scotts unreleased electronic recordings from the 1950s and 60s. In 1946, Scott formed Manhattan Research Inc. (MRI), billed as Designers and Manufacturers of Electronic Music and Musique Concrète Devices and Systems. His colleague Robert Moog said, Scott was definitely in the forefront of developing electronic music technology and in the forefront of using it commercially as a musician. Soothing Sounds For Baby was just a warm-up. With MRI, prepare yourself for something beyond the pleasant parameters of pop. Scotts electronic experiments took him to uncharted netherworlds. The results are intriguing, compelling, and occasionally diabolic. Where SSFB offers relaxing ambience, the grotesqueries of MRI promise a sonic excursion to the realms of weightlessness, moon-craters, and six-armed aliens with twittering antennae. The recordings range from detergent jingles to decidedly non-commercial -- uncommercial, even -- experimental adventures in sound sculpture."-Basta

Of the 101 flavors currently coursing through the undead corpse of punk, these guys spray a gritty combination of grind n groove that represents musical life at its most primal level. Then when youre sure they just started playing instruments the day before they recorded this, the overtones hit you -- Scrapers touched with Flipper and Urinals art-ghetto flair! You might even call it minimalist, and the lyrics whip a satirical, surrealist-psychedelic angle on the inevitable social/romantic blues of the songs. Coming from the filth with no kind of irony or apology, this sound, is a way of life -- and somehow, it sounds like fun! This six-song EP is Scrapers first vinyl release." -God?.

"The Screamers were part of the 1st wave of west coast punk. They were together from 1977 - 81 and had roots that can be traced back nearly a decade. Founding members Tomata du Plenty and Tommy Gear had performed together in Ze Whiz Kidz, a lip-sync troupe which godfathered major rebirths of local scenes of performance art, modern dance, punk and the gay underground in Seattle in the early 70ies. In 1975 they formed The Tupperwares, an all drag trio which included Rio de Janeiro, Tomata and Melba Toast (Tommy). They performed a few shows in 1976 with the help of various underground Seattle musicians such as Bill Rieflien (of Rev-co fame) and members of his band The Telepaths. One of the first west coast DIY shows was put on by The Tupperwares, The Telepaths and Meyce on May 1st, 1976, at the Odd Fellows Temple - admission was $1.00. The spring of 1977 would see a move to LA by Tommy and Tomata where they meet and recruit KK Barrett and David Braun, and form The Screamers. Vocals, ARP Odessey synth, Fender Rhodes electric piano with fuzz box and drums was what they used to create their lo fi psycho kraftwerk performance punk attack. They became one of LAs all time biggest club bands and they were also its most mysterious. They are renowned as the original punk undergrounds most popular band, who vanished into thin air without ever releasing a single record, who never officially toured, and who were so far ahead of their time in doing away with electric guitars in aggressive rock music that they were called techno punk back in 1978. Style and theater were also so much part of The Screamers that nobody ever called them out for being a punk band with a full time stylist.

"Although the Screamin Mee-Mees are best known for their 1977 EP, the D.I.Y. Punk masterpiece "Live From The Basement", the boys had been making tapes since the late 60s. They recorded goofball rock n folk songs on guitar and homemade drums, Kraut Rock-n-pot fueled white noise jams and the odd bit of comedy, organ music and other experimentations. This cassette is a real gem Im proud to have re-discovered during one of our many excavations of Bruce Coles basement. Recorded around 69 or 70, the tape was long thought lost and not heard for a couple decades. The first side is Bruce and Jon of the Mee-Mees putting on a production of "TV shows" with songs and bits, including a variety show with the boys posing as a couple rock bands. The second side starts with Bruce and Jon recording their observations as they drove around Ferguson in Jons Javelin station wagon. After that trek, the boys head back home to play a handful of original songs. Vocals by both, with Bruce on acoustic guitar and Jon on coffee can drums. About a full hour glimpse into the minds of the Mee-Mees, a very, very scary place. Shrink-wrapped, pro-made, chrome cassette with full color cover. CS is limited to 100 copies." -Rerun.

The Screaming Abdabs (1978) tear through 8 previously unreleased songs of rough and ready female-fronted punk akin to a devolved Suicide Squad or the Bags or at their most sloppy, with tips of the hat to obscure 60s punk, AC/DC, and a conceptual debt to the rhythm section of The Glitter Band. Richard City Ram Waddy was the Abdabs drummer, whose two very raw/very rare 1979 solo records are compiled and made widely available here for the first time. The 6 songs range from some of the most primitive and lo-fi ever released in Australia, to sparse, clean minimalism channeling Suicide and PiL, but always infused with Waddys idiosyncratic worldview.

SCREAMING URGEs "Homework" is this series theme-song. They were certainly the punkiest outfit in the gloriously experimental Columbus scene at the turn of the 80s, but the thoroughly un-punk artwork on their LPs and the EP still scares off the headbangers.

Format: LP

Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"Three-plus years and many hurdles overcome, the long-awaited SCROTUM POLES treasure trove has finally been unearthed! Twenty-two unreleased 1979/1980 studio and home recordings from one of the best early UK DIY pop bands. Except for the most dour and hygienically-challenged of punk collectors, SCROTUM POLES first hit the public radar via one of Hypedtodeaths first homemade Messthetics CD-R compilations of lost late-70s/early 80s UK DIY punk & pop bands. For those whose minds were blown by the seemingly unending depths of amazing slop bubbled to the surface by the Messthetics series, The Scrotum Poles "Pick the Cats Eyes Out" and "Helicopter Honeymoon" (both from their only vinyl release, the legendary, oddly-sized Revelation EP) were arguably the best of the mess. Formed in Dundee, Scotland in 1978, the scrappy Scrotum Poles exemplify wonderfully the anything-goes attitude of the time immediately following the first wave of punk, and Auchmithie Forever opens up a perfectly imperfect chapter of this exciting period. Sure, theres nods to the obvious punk forebears, and the surefire upbeat punk-pop hits are undeniable, but other dreary pop tendencies come much closer in sound to early Go-Betweens or the loping bass-driven bands appearing out of Manchester in following years. Auchmithie Forever has been painstakingly culled from hours of lost-then-found-then-lost-then-found-again C-90 cassette tapes recorded by the band before and around the recording of the legendary Revelation EP. The best of the best songs from three different tapes appear here, including different versions of both "Pick the Cats" and "Helicopter" (pop fans will LOVE the drum-less, near-acoustic bedroom version of "Pick the Cats"). Cassette transferring was a monumental task, but no expense or effort was spared to find the right balance of noise and clarity. In addition to their admitted lack of instrument mastery or traditional tuning abilities, the recordings are mucky-the tapes made muckier with 30 years of soggy English basement storage. Sticklers for hi-fi recordings will run for their lives, but those with patience (or love) for some hiss & flutter will be generously rewarded. Auchmithie Forever is available with full cooperation from the band, containing photos, clippings, lyrics and liner notes from SMEG POLE himself." - Dulc-i-Tone. Highly recommended! Restocked!

"Finally! After Auchmithie Forevers treasures were unleashed last year, now here comes what youve all been waiting for: a complete reproduction of arguably THE best example of the pop side (or any side, really!) of the UK DIY post-punk era. Dundees Smeg, Burt, Sid & Stripey originally released Revelation themselves in handmade, ill-fitting covers in 1980, and thirty-one years later it still deserves to be filed alongside 14th Floor, Spiral Scratch, and The Medium is Tedium. With more hits on one single than most bands have across multiple albums, the five songs here perfectly encapsulate the excitement of the UK post-punk explosion from the perspective of a teenage record fanatic. From the raging proto-hardcore Radio Tay and the untouchable bedroom powerpop of "Helicopter Honeymoon", to the gloomy Night Train and the dreary pop classic "Pick the Cats Eyes Out", Revelation sounds almost like a clunky sampling of what was happening at the time but simultaeously outdoes the bands idols with its stripped-down purity and undeniably instant catchiness. Remastered and packaged in glossy glued sleeves, and including a repro of the orginal entertaining ditto-on-gold paper insert (complete with connect the dot games and Do the Scrote dance instructions), its worth the wait!

Title: Nitrogen Narcosis
Format: LP
Label: Further
Country: USA
Price: $25.00
"Scuba Death is Ricardo Donosos alter ego. With more of a focus on analog sound, percussion, sampling, and location recordings, there is an organic undercurrent on Scuba Death recordings that isnt as prevalent in his solo work. This music is rich in atmosphere while still tethered to the deeper ideas that Donoso often explores in his work. Treatises on fear and death-­anxiety, the underlining thematic framework for the project, run rampant throughout these claustrophobic electronic passages, and teeter on the edge of being oppressive. Nitrogen Narcosis marks the first full-length and strongest statement in the Scuba Death repertoire after the privately issued, ruthless Demon Seed 12" back in 2011. The album alternates between surprising lethargic dance inflections all nestled between 75 & 100 bpm, the normal resting heart rate for adults, and the more conceptual, numbness­-inducing pieces like "50­70 Meters" and "Nociception." Sequencing plays an integral role on Nitrogen Narcosis as the listener is suddenly thrust into the darkest reaches of the ocean after dark alley grooves are sucked into an aquatic abyss. For a project named after Donosos near-drowning experience in the South Atlantic when he was younger, theres an impressive amount of reflection and vulnerability present -- the field recordings that permeate throughout the album were captured at the same location the undertow caught hold of him that bright summer day 20 years prior. An inner battle between paranoia and euphoria is played out in well-­conceived, precision sonics on Nitrogen Narcosis as Donoso reminds us to look back, break through the surface and go deeper. Ricardo Donosos solo work speaks for itself, but with this new chapter comes new questions and considerations. Scuba Death is enigmatic to a fault and all the better for it. Recorded at Vesica Pisces, September-November 2012." - Further.

Price: $7.50
“Like the millennial squishing of dumb rock into diamonds that eventually adorn dames fingers, its the geezers—intimate with dreams crushed by the hard knox of indifference—whore truly capable of squeezing out acerbic pop gems that burn hot. They know. SCUPPERs MIKE JANSON licked gold encrusted sushi bowls with the darlings of alt rock supremacy during his time with LYNNFIELD PIONEERS. They issued two weirdly great long players on Matador in the mid 90s, only to have their ruins smote upon the mountainside of pop culture refuse. No less an aficionado of such things as Aging Baldini at Fuckin Record Reviews hailed Janson as "the Goffin/King of basement power bomp." Jansons since fleshed out his new blood vision with bassist ANDREW SHUMWAY (defected from the Jersey City suburban basement Lizzy/Priest smoke out collective ÄSS, where he traded ümlauty riffs with The Mad Scenes Brian Turner and former Crucifucks drummer Steve Shelley) and drummer RICHARD AMARI, who brings a level of combustible professionalism with which indie rockers are too often unfamiliar. Together, theyre as sharp and tight as a giant burning orb stuffed inside the velvet balcony at Radio City.
Based on the youthful energy bouncing off all corners of “Everything,” Scupper havent lost a step in the downtime. Both “Everything” and its flip, “Drown Me Out,” nail the kind of surging, harmony-laden melodic punk that Superchunk used to specialize in. But Scuppers newest single is no mere nostalgia trip—these songs are flesh and blood and standing right in front of you.”- Ever/Never.

"Sea Urchin is the Berlin-based brainchild of the Italian Francesco Cavaliere and the Egyptian-Austrian Leila Hassan. Being core members of the underground, they already released a 7" in 2012 on Das Andere Selbst and Solar Hype Dance in 2014 on Stenze Quo Musik. Cavaliere has also released Gancio Cielo (H 024LP, 2016) and Gancio Cielo 2 - Il Gruppo Respingi Comete (H 030LP, 2016) in 2016. Yaqaza is their long-awaited vinyl debut. The duo surprises with a multi-colored, mystic and intriguing collage of deconstructed pop hits, Italian music concrète, King Tubby-like dub and Algerian Rai. It is no coincidence that Yaqaza is Arabic for "daydream, reverie". The record is a virtual reality labyrinth in which the listener wanders around sleepwalking, constantly opening new doors and sliding between tableaux vivants. The poetic vocals by Hassan, alternately in Arabic and English, is an absent guide that takes the listener to ethereal micro-cosmoses. Dubby baselines, a cold drum computer, analog electronics and subtle tape collages come together in an intriguing and wondrous web of unravelling side plots. Yaqaza is a magic realist frame narrative. The side roles are performed by Sicilian salt miners, Bolaji Badejo (actor of the "alien" in Alien (1979)) or Cheba Nouria (an Algerian pop star)." - Kraak.

"Fantastic new release on Erebus Records containing a 4-page booklet with band info. A primitive Christian folk-rock LP which hits some truly unique moods and sounds on about 2/3rds of the tracks. Obviously inspired by the West Coast psychedelic sounds of the era, The Search Party take compositions by their spiritual mentor, a Catholic middle-aged priest, and turn them into primitive California garage folk rock and psych with fuzz leads and raw vocals! Most Christian folk-rock LPs suffer from still having one foot left in Sunday School, but these young seminarians have definitely broken through to the other side. Side 1 ends with an unparalleled 9-minute downer folk-rock excursion with heavy soul-searching lyrics that alone makes Montgomery Chapel worth checking out, but beware -- its crude, even the female vocalist has a strange edge.

“Jay Alansky, a.k.a. Patrick Arondel, was one half of the duet who brought us that amazing Beautiful Losers Nobody Knows The Heaven album in 1974, among many other works - he has been active in the music world for the last four decades producing various albums through the years under many different aliases. But our matter today is a faithful reissue of his earliest works. Season, done with band mates Christophe Jacq, François Dorembus and Michel Michalakakos was originally issued on Arondels fathers own label Monde Melody and sold in small quantities, mostly around their own high school classmates at the Lycée Voltaire, which according to Jays own words in the liner notes to The Beautiful Losers CD reissue on Lion Productions / Martyrs Of Pop, was "known for its post-68 turmoil".
And certainly, the counter-culture elements of the late sixties, early seventies melt in a stunning folk-prog rarity from the French underground that has remained a well kept secret through the years! The average age of the musicians was 16 years old! And the album was recorded in just nine hours using studio time offered by Jays father.
We have included the two songs of the rare Arondel / Dorembus / Jacq / Michalakakos Hello Life / Inside The Sacred Book 7" as bonus to round the reissue!
Reissued under license from Jay Alansky with the cooperation of Christopher Jacq, François Dorembus and Michel Mikalakakos in a 500 copies limited edition that respects the original artwork, comes with remastered sound, bonus tracks and includes an insert with liner notes by Jean-Emmanuel Deluxe.” - Wah Wah.

"Another rarity is this original soundtrack album to Terayama Shujis last movie with music by JA Seazer (Tenjo Sajiki, JA Caesar). Released in 1984, it was Terayamas last completed movie and Seazers last contribution to his visionary and reactionary world. Saraba Habobunes soundtrack is just stunningly beautiful, far removed from Seazers trademark bombastic scores. Instead it ventures into more pastoral and almost meditative psychedelic realms filled with traditional string plucking, eerie flute, shahuhachi flirtations, esoterically floating beneath-the-surface female Orff-like choruses and ethereal shamanistic sense of poetry that create memory flashes towards a forceful nostalgia of a past not directly experienced. The whole is endowed with beauty and an austere intimacy spiced up with occasional echoes of circus side show callers that seem to recall aspirational surges out of a concealed depth of former delinquent activities. A deceptively intense, casual in feel, yet meticulous in its musical detail and lyrical transmigrative eclectic beauty. A true astonishingly beautiful and ear-filling piece of consummate art that is so hard to come to terms with.

"Second Woman is a collaborative project featuring Turk Dietrich of Belong and Joshua Eustis of the renowned Telefon Tel Aviv. As one would imagine, Second Woman is a nonpareil debut of futuristic electronic music fusing the coveted genetics of the duos respective previous endeavors into an alluring new enigma of ASMR-inducing kaleidoscopic dub. Second Woman is a fully realized entity, a well-crafted sound world, and a refreshing shared effort that is inspiring in its purity and painstaking in its design. The opening "100407jd7" wastes no time exhibiting mastery in both sound and structure, contorting the frequency spectrum into a psychoactive mirage with its mutating tectonics and vaporous tone clouds. Cuts like "200601je6" and "700358bc5" are bar-raising examples of veteran craftsmanship and vision, refining and reengineering the blueprints of their early works to create an original and dynamic album. The deliberation and control over every particle is obsessive, but the end results of each individual track unfold with an organic temperament unparalleled in a grid-locked world of DAW-shaped musics and rats-nest modular aleatory. Words fail where essential sonics are concerned, and this vital new creation speaks for itself." - Spectrum Spools.

"Secret Abuser Jeff Witscher is an enigma wrapped in a riddle rolled in cassette tape and plugged into a battered pair of towering PA speakers. Hes lived everywhere, met everyone, and inspired legions through his lifestyle, utopian fashions (refugee chic), and spellbindingly intense music. Up from Rainbow Blanket, through to Impregnable, and across the arid plains of Roman Torment and Deep Jew, Witschers maintained a singularity of vision and total commitment to execution that has wrecked us, personally, to the point of speechlessness at least a dozen times. But, despite his restlessly shapeshifting spirit, the past year plus has seen him settling slightly deeper into his Secret Abuse sinkhole style, and heres hoping he lingers a while longer, cause its a fucking winner. Brutal, pensive, blown-out tones crossfade into tortured minor key guitar laments before being slowly subsumed in a droning ocean of choked vocals and sulking, selfish electronics. Repressed, burning, and emotional like a young man pushing away everything, Violent Narcissus is as definitive a document as has thus far yet emerged from the SA canon (and lord knows theres been a grip of gems). Look long and hard; the mirror is a bitter mistress. Black LPs, mastered by Bill Hutson, housed in jackets designed by Witscher. Edition of 445." -Not Not Fun

Title: Memory Care Unit
Format: LP
Label: Blackest Ever Black
Country: UK
Price: $22.00
"Memory Care Unit is a long-form offering of poignant, isolationist machine music from Secret Boyfriend. Eschewing the cryptic and compact song-sketches that characterized his 2013 LP This Is Always Where Youve Lived (BLACKEST 023LP), Ryan Martin instead guides listeners through vast interior topographies and nerve-damaged ambiences that comfort and deceive like memory itself. Beginning with "The Singing Bile" -- minimal synth submerged and subjected to an almost oceanic pressure -- the tracks are mostly crude, extended live improvisations, recorded straight to tape. Martins loose intention was to subtract himself from proceedings and "let the music play itself," but the erasure is not quite complete; on the contrary, each piece feels distinctly authored, and charged with personal significance. The atrophying loops of "Memorize Them Well" broach the elegiac grandeur of Gas and William Basinski, while "Paean delle Palme" summons E.A.R., Af Ursin, and the clammy, opioid exoticism of :zoviet*france:*s Just an Illusion. The album is largely instrumental, but there are two weighty exceptions: the sprawling, drumbox-driven space blues of "Little Jammy Centre" and the guileless yearning of "Stripping At The Nail." This is electronic pop undressed, unraveled, and mapped onto the infinite wave. Expansive and enveloping, Memory Care Units offering of comfort and refuge is difficult to resist. But this amniotic idyll is frayed and haunted at its edges, and ultimately treacherous. The return to innocence it promises may be possible, but the price is separation, alienation, and loss. Housed in full-color reverse-board sleeve with printed inner sleeve. Includes MP3/FLAC download code." - Blackest Ever Black.

"Blackest Ever Blacks last release of 2013 comes from Secret Boyfriend, the solo project of North Carolinas Ryan Martin, who is also one-half of Boyzone and founder of the Hot Releases label -- a catholic endeavor that has seen him release records from the cream of the contemporary N.C. underground as well as reissuing classic sides by the likes of Maurizio Bianchi, Ghedalia Tazartes, and Ashrae Fax. To date, Secret Boyfriends presence has been felt largely in the shape of live performances and short-run cassette releases (including Carved at Birth, Furnishing the Void, and Skin on the Clock), as well as vinyl splits with Russian Tsarlag and Horaflora. This Is Always Where Youve Lived is SBs first LP release and unquestionably his most potent, fully-realized work to date. Twelve songs from under the floorboards: a heart-rending but hard-edged synthesis of downer folk, tape experiments, noise etudes, and basement-mildewed pop for edgeland fuck-ups, loners, and wanderers; recommended if you like Peter Jeffries, Flaming Tunes, Storm Bugs, etc. Arguably comes closer than any previous BEB release to articulating the "mesmerized suburban daydreams of our youth."

"SECRET PYRAMID is the solo project of Vancouver-based musician AMIR ABBEY, whose previous output includes The Silent March cassette (to be reissued on vinyl by Students of Decay in early 2014). Movements of Night finds Abbey further develop and refine the haunting, faraway sound-world that earned the aforementioned release well-due praise. "A Descent" opens the record; its title aptly portends the tracks dirge-like drones and throbbing cycles of low-end. Throughout Movements of Night, Abbey deftly navigates the properties of sleep and unconsciousness, charting a course that is equal parts harrowing and funereal, tranquil and sublime. Juxtaposing the everyday with the obscured, the half-there melodies and arcs of hazy guitar histrionics of "Closer" dissolve into "To Forget," a track that posits a more familiar, tangible atmosphere in which radiant drones are tethered to a driving bassline, recalling perhaps a lost 70s Popol Vuh Herzog soundtrack. "Escape" closes the album on a nostalgic note, akin to the feeling of waking from a wondrous dream which one knows one cannot revisit. With Movements of Night, Abbey casts his net into the abyss of the unconscious and returns with a potent paean to the dreamworld. For fans of Sunn O))), Popol Vuh, Stars of the Lid." -Students of Decay.

"Alberts Basement is damn excited to present ‘The Glisten e.p.’ 12-inch by Melbourne’s very own Secret Valley.
The follow up to Secret Valley’s self-titled debut, ‘The Glisten e.p.’ glows with pulsing keyboards, dirty guitar, close/dreamy lyrics and bangin’ beats constructed to party and transcend existence. The two singers Dan Cross and Phoebe Robertson begin articulating their feelings in a warm and bright manner, with abstract interjections that are juicy as hell and take us along a trail-ride of dreams, yearnings, bummers and bad vibes, all the while keeping it fun and humorous with self-awareness and inventive descriptions such as “sometimes friends of coincidence used to twist the day time vine”. The words are where lyricist Dan Cross lays it bear and toys with his song craft. Recorded over 2013/2014 and mastered by Mikey Young, ‘The Glisten e.p.’ is a home made masterpiece. From the hand painted eagle with a crow’s body on the album cover to the recording and music video for lead track ‘Angry Loners Unite’ (featuring comics star Simon Hanselmann) Dan has been in control. The whole e.p. was recorded by Dan in his home studio in Fitzroy, Melbourne. He made it how he likes it, and he made it for you!

Dan has been honing his craft for over 15 years as Rentboy and Secret Valley is a more pop progression. His songs are complex blueprints, a maze of articulate arrangements and blossoming interplay. The songs are anthemic.

Angry Loners Unite is a bitter sweet pop hit. Be Happy & Enjoy Yourself is an epic white trash rhapsody. Crow Bar is catchy and claustrophobic, and My Two Kids, a cover of a Mad Nanna tune, groans and shines.
New addition Phoebe Robertson from The Curse sings her lines strong and confidently, her bright voice beaming into the atmosphere and her trombone tearing away triumphantly.

Soul food for dark shadows.

Comes with lyric sheet and digital download code." - Alberts Basement.

The track Id Rather Stay Home and Watch TV still has more than its fair share of the Aussie-garage stomp of bands like the Chosen Few and the Victims, but after that its all about Mo Tucker beats, dark and poetic lyrics delivered with a distinctly Lou Reed-influenced drawl, and heavy, melodic Peter Hook-style bass lines.

Title: Regeneration Report
Format: LP
Label: Sol Re Sol
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"It is the late 1970s and recently politicized filmmaker and musician Ed Montgomery makes his way from San Francisco to New York City. His thought is to find like-minded musicians in order to create a politically-infused, free jazz-inspired performance ensemble. He starts playing in Latin groups and takes part in jam sessions at Bobo Shaws LaMama space. He finally assembles a group of musicians and starts making some seriously funky and far-out music. Released on Mongomerys Context Music label, Regeneration Report got some notice, but not what it deserved. The music is a tough blend of funk, jazz, no wave, and Latin - very strong stuff that sounds as fresh today as it did in 1981. It was the lyrics that kept the Sedition Ensemble from a larger audience. Revolutionary words with absolutely no compromise, Montgomery and McCauley attack injustice and give an analysis of the world as stark it is true. Their message is sadly still relevant today. The lazymans description of Sedition Ensemble is this: Take the stripped down funkiness of ESG and combine it with the Last Poets funk militancy, Fela Kutis horn section hipped on free jazz from the 70s New York loft scene, then add a bit of Eddie Palmieri s Harlem River Drive Orchestra. A private pressing when independent labels had weak distribution, Regeneration Report never sold a lot of records. Few copies made it off the East Coast. Nowadays, original copies fetch good money in collectors circles. We at Sol Re Sol Record are proud to reissue this great LP. The vinyl has been remastered by John Golden and is housed in an old style tip-on sleeve and includes liner notes by band founder Ed Montgomery." - Sol Re Sol.

Long delayed reissue, finally released; officially remastered from original tapes. Early electronic music of Eckhart and Wolf-J. Seesselberg from 1971-1973 created with hand made synthesizers. Originally released on a private LP in 1973 in a quantity of 600. "DŸsseldorf was the electronic / industrial wasteland that spawned Kraftwerk, Cluster and Neu. It was also the stomping ground for Eckhart and Wolf-J. Seesselberg who partly produced this excellent album there (the other location being Hamburg). Rather than go for extended electronic drones, however, the brothers came up with a selection of shorter pieces, adding variety to their record which others failed to imitate. Seesselberg have been compared (somewhat clumsily) to early Kraftwerk and Conrad Schnitzlers Kluster, but to my ears they have more in common with New Yorks Suicide and The Silver Apples (minus the vocals natch!) than any of their German contemporaries." - Plate Lunch.

"These were brothers Wolf & Eckhart Seesselberg. They pioneered the modular synth experiments in 1970s Germany just as their peers Beaver & Krause, Tontos Expanding Head Band or The Silver Apples did in the USA. Their performances often took place in art galleries or Modern Art museums, where besides their sounds they also offered seminars to instruct the public into the art of synthesizer sounds.
Wolf Seesselberg became an electronic music enthusiast through his work at the Hamburg Schauspielhaus and under the influence of Swedish composer Karl-Birger Blomdahl and his electronic tone generator. His brother Eckhart devoted all his passion into building his own synthesizer, a process that lasted over ten years!
The good news is that they did record their performances, and a selection of those tapes recorded between 1971 and 1973 formed their 1973 LP "Synthetik 1", which sees its first vinyl reissue ever now on Wah Wah Records. Containing a way out sound, often ignoring the principles of standard rhythm and melody in favour of adventurous experimentation with the endless possibilities of the sythesizer, its one of the most underrated kraut albums that nonetheless deserves to be up there with the early works of Cluster / Kluster or Conrad Schnitzler.
The Wah Wah reissue corrects the original printing by offering it on silver board (like that of the first Silver Apples LP, or our recent reissue of Spacecraft - as it was originally conceived but not released probably due to budget limitations), features reproductions of original postcards to promote Seesselberg performance in kunst galleries and, of course, includes an insert with liner notes plus lots of previously unseen photographies by the duo at work.

"Blatantly mis-monikered outing (recorded in 1996) by this new supergrouping of Tatsuya Yoshida (Ruins/Musica Transonic/Koenjihyakkei), Makoto Kawabata (Toho Sara/Mainliner/Musica Transonic) and Atsushi Tsuyama (Omoide Hatoba). A welcome re-entry to the field of +12 dB analogue overload (lacking on certain recent new-japan sessions) and improv-psych-stumble featuring at least 20 different instruments in varied settings. Some unexpected passages of Moog-flash and power drumming counter sedate sections of Toho-Sara-ish eastern sun-god-altar virgin-sacrifice. A grand jostle to existing fans of this somewhat daunting scene of Japanese heavy-fumble, and a novel entry for the uninitiated." --Hrvatski. "Seikazoku is playing improvisation between progressive, psychedelic rock and modern, traditional music. Featuring 16 tracks, with drums, bass, guitar Hammond organ, Rhodes, Moog, piano, percussions, oboe, kazoo, bouzouki, sarangi, violin, hyoutan syamisen and voices. Full of ideas, effects and energy: a real new sound from Japan."

"Seishokki (roughly translates as Organs Of Blue Eclipse) was an outfit formed while its members were still in high school and active from 1975-1977 in Asahikawa in northern Japan. The onset of punk may have validated these six non-musicians decision to start a band but original member Ikuro Takahashi (who went on to perform with a veritable whos who list of outfits including Fushitsusha, High Rise, Che-Shizu and Maher Shalal Hash Baz) has suggested that a lot of their inspiration came from what was probably a misreading of early minimalism. With their musical influences as likely to be only heard of as actually heard what comes out in these recordings is a wonderfully primitive approach to the repetition of minimalism with exuberant forays into wild synth/percussion driven noise. The result is a sound that falls somewhere between the original Amon Duul LPs and Outside the Dream Syndicate with a nod towards the subsequent development of noise as a genre in the Japanese underground. These are believed to be the only surviving recordings of this band with the exception of a vocal track with lyrics concerning an eternal teenage concern deemed too mortifying for release.

Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Finders Keepers
Country: UK
Price: $26.00
“2016 repress; originally reissued in 2006. Bearing all the aesthetic watermarks of a private-press country LP, Selda Bağcans 1976 debut long-player is a stunning work of space-age Anatolian electronic, progressive protest-psych-folk-funk-rock; a delectable hybrid concoction, presented with the utmost authenticity and conviction, which has never been replicated or equaled in the decades since its recording. When Selda first released her long-awaited LP (the first of two confusingly eponymous titles released the same year), she was enduring/enjoying her halcyon time as one of Turkeys most politically outspoken popular folk singers. In the previous decade she had made a household name for herself as a traditional Anadolu protest singer with a spectacular emotive vocal capacity (for idle arguments sake, begging comparison to a TurkishJoan Baez). A figurehead and poetic driving force for a radical generation of politically motivated, creative revolutionaries, she sang raw, stripped-down folk songs with a yearning for political change and a heart-wrenching earnestness. On her debut LP, in a match made in psychedelic heaven, Seldas radical prose fuses with equally radical musical gestures from some of the most lauded musical mavericks, including Anadolu beat combo Moğollar (also known to a growing French audience as Les Mogol), popular backing band Dadaşlar under the guidance of Anatolian rock stalwart Arif Sağ, and master electronic producer and pioneer Zafer Dilek. The bands were assembled at multiple sessions at Yeni Studios and the über-legendary Studio Elektronik, where the record was finally completed and mastered. Released in 1976 to equal parts critical acclaim and skepticism, the album smashed boundaries both lyrically and musically. It begs comparison to the second LP by post-folk sibling trio 3 Hür-El (GUESS 056LP), who used a balance of electronically treated saz and proto-polyphonic synthesizers to similar effect (exemplified here on tracks such as "Gitme" and "Yaz Gazeteci Yaz"). However, the fact that Selda was one of the few female voices to adopt the use of such cutting-edge techniques puts the LP in a league of its very own. Anatolian progressive rock has since gained popularity among DJs, producers, and record collectors as an unrivalled source for unique sounds rarely found in other genres of international music, and the artists involved in the recording of this LP, all of whom continued to record radical and experimental music, are considered the cream of the crop among Eastern psych aficionados. Includes two bonus tracks from the album sessions.” - Finders Keepers.

Title: Scratch
Format: 12"
Label: Artkillart
Country: France
Price: $26.00
One-sided release. "Scratch is a sound installation for which the fastest industrial robot in the world has been modified to scratch the surface of a vinyl record placed on a table. The monster machine, capable of manipulating up to 240 pieces per minute is equipped with a reading head specialized for amplifying the sound that is produced by the frenetic attacks of the metal on the record. The dynamic force of the robots arms is impossible to follow with the naked eye. The varied and surgically precise positions and accelerations are orchestrated by a computer program specially designed for the project. The raw noise is massively distributed in the exhibition space until the moment when the robot detaches itself from the surface of the vinyl to prepare for a new cycle by practicing a series of extremely fast, circular warmup movements. Pausing only momentarily to allow for a space for silence, the sonic residue of the hypnotic hyperactivity of the robot quickly fills the space again. The heavy pressure caused by the movements of the metallic point on the surface of the record produce a series of erosion lines and remove some surface material along these markings. The mutations and transformations of these objects are direct and unique results from the work sequence, raw traces of the performance. The choice of the record remains free and arbitrary and like a sportsman at the end of his career, it is not replaced until it reaches its rupture point, its saturation. Scratch is a sonic composition of 7min 22sec in duration, made up of recordings of the activity of the robot on vinyl records and their reading on a regular record player. The two sonic states of a same object creates a third state." - Artkillart

Originally we had simply made a selection of the recorded material large enough to fill a single album, Roth was unable to part with the remaining material when it came to having the records pressed. The remorseless inclusion of even the failures, the idle moments, was so radical it almost bordered on masochism. In this particular case I felt it was an ascetic exercise in dispensing with all the correction and rectification, a ban on holding anything back. Simultaneously, Roths often hard school of total acceptance had a stimulating and in some ways liberating effect on me, mindful as I normally am of formal rigor and economy of means" - Gerhard Rühm.

Leave your glasses behind. Ramon Sender is a legendary figure in the Bay Area scene -- first paving the way for the San Francisco Tape Center with Mort Subotnick (Silver Apples of the Moon) and Pauline Oliveiros at the dawn of the 1960s where the stunningly out pieces on this disc happened. In subsequent years, he played an active role with the San Francisco Diggers -- the anarchist guerilla street theater group that challenged the emerging Counterculture --and co-founded the legendary Morningstar Ranch Commune in Sonoma County.

Title: Fragments of Light
Format: LP
Label: Superior Viaduct
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"SENSATIONS FIX guitarist, keyboardist and occasional vocalist FRANCO FALSINI cut his teeth with Italian groups in the 60s before assimilating the heady guitar virtuosity of English rock. In 1969, he moved to Virginia and built a recording studio in his girlfriends basement, employing little more than his guitar, the newly available Minimoog synthesizer and a 4-track machine. These raw tracks, intended to be simple demos, formed the base of Fragments of Light, the debut album by Sensations Fix. Originally released on Polydor in 1974, Fragments of Light does not bend to mid-70s genre-classism. Fluid, meditative guitar leads and innovative use of synthesizers, combined with a noted lack of percussion (and vocals) on all but a few songs, have drawn comparisons to Kosmische legends Tangerine Dream and Popol Vuh. "Space Closure," the only track with live drums, resembles the kinetic progressive rock of fellow Italian Franco Battiato, while the shimmering bliss of "Do You Love Me?" rivals the American power pop that Falsini surely absorbed during his time in the States.

2015 release. "Shadoks Music presents a reissue of Sepi Kuus Rannan Usvassa (1980). Until now there has been no information at all about Sepi Kuu. It wasnt even certain if Sepi Kuu was a real band. Sepi Kuu was a one-man project and the music has never been performed live. The artist kept his real identity hidden behind his alias and wants to keep it this way. It all started February-March 1980, when Maarit, the wife of the poet Mikko Tola, got in touch with Sepi Kuu and asked him if hed be interested in composing music for her husbands poems. Sepi Kuu did all the arrangements and played all the instruments, except for the bass on track six. Often the acoustic guitar was recorded first, then the other instruments: electric guitar, drums, synthesizer, flute, Indian bells and/or clay drums were added one by one. The vocal parts were always done last. The twelve songs that make up Rannan Usvassa contained influences from psychedelic to folk and oriental. Sepi Kuu said rather the psychedelic-prog-folk of the English band Comus was a big influence for him but also Pere Ubu, Suicide and Joy Division were found as influences. Rannan Usvassa is full of real stoned sounds, dreamy dark vocals, strange vibes and atmospheres, all connected to the poems of Mikko Tola. Great singing, Hawkwind-type of sounds, Parameter, Dr. Hooker, stoned, strange and spherical. 180 gram vinyl. Comes in a heavy sleeve with a two-page insert. Edition of 500 (numbered)." - Shadoks.

Title: Live At Roscoe Louie
Format: 10"
Label: Domestica
Country: Spain
Price: $21.00
"Sequencer People is one of the many projects which the prolific US duet formed by Roland Barker and James Husted carried out in the early eighties. Under this pseudonym, we just have the proof of a cassette recorded in 1982 by the independent American label Engram Records & Tapes, from Seattle, which collects the only concert recorded in the art gallery Roscoe Louie, from Seattle as well. Apart from this short association, the American duet Minimal Synth, formed by Roland and James, took part in lots of other projects, sometimes together with other groups (Young Scientist, or Body Falling Downstairs), other times concurrently (Audio Leter, or K7SS) and also on their own.
As James himself points out, the essence of all these groups was improvisation, that is to say, they never compounded following limited patterns. They used to have a very simple structure which they were developing without a previous schedule. For this reason they have never conceived the term ‘song’ in their wide musical production; instead, they talked about ‘performances’ or ‘improvisations’. Anyway, in all their projects we always find an obvious tendency towards experimentation, in essence, with electronic instruments and the discovery of new possibilities with analogic technology, as well as the creation of dark sounding universes, industrial and open to a lot of possibilities…

Title: Mecanica Celeste
Format: LP
Label: Rocket
Country: UK
Price: $22.00
"This is the third official recording by South American space-rockers Serpentina Satelite. After the success of their album Nothing To Say, the band returned to their studio in Peru to record this more ambitious and accomplished-sounding follow-up. The album recalls all the great psychedelic bands from the past 40 years, from 70s bands like Ash Ra Tempel, Amon Düül II and Hawkwind; through to 80s bands like Monster Magnet (particularly Tab-era) and Loop and todays contemporary cosmic warlords like Eternal Tapestry, White Hills and Magic Lantern. Mecanica Celeste is a conceptually unique take on psychedelia, conceived by manipulating traditional religious songs, text ideology and poetry with heavy fuzz guitars, swirling drones, spaced-out wah solos, motorik rhythms and delayed vocals, to create a head-melting experience of an album which climaxes with the proto-metal riffs of track "Sendero," giving the band a fresh-sounding approach to the well-trod grounds of space rock: Serpentina Satelite tried to get to heaven but ended up in space." -Rocket

"Multi-instrumentalist Steven R. Smith and veteran experimentalist Dirk Serries team up for a collaborative album that is as familiar as it is different from their individual sonic endeavors. Made with electric guitars, Fender Rhodes, organs, and various types of bowed instruments, this album is about organic evolution. Each "mantra" is constructed from the directness of each instrument, meticulously layered against each other, creating the drone. Four long-form mantras; four harmonic themes that excel in their own beautiful organic progress over time." - Cassauna.

"The Servants was an indie band formed in 1985 in Hayes, Middlesex, England by singer and songwriter David Westlake. Their brand of the mid-80s jangly guitar-pop was intellectual, refined and classy as opposed to the shambolic and noisy lo-fi scene heralded by the C-86 compilation they would appear on and be connected with during their active career. After lots of lineup changes (including past/future members of The Auteurs and The Housemartins) and a string of great singles and one great LP (Disinterest) the band called it a day in 1991. Around this time, huge fan and Belle & Sebastian frontmn Stuart Murdoch was trying to locate David Westlake in the hopes of forming a band with him, before launching Belle in his school class instead. In 2006, the great Cherry Red label finally pulled together the unreleased tracks and singles into the CD Reserved from which this vinyl-only compilation is pulled. Combined with a copy of Disinterest (if you can find one) this collection is the essential vinyl document of a great band from a great era of music that can easily be thought of as what would be their debut LP. Includes mp3 download card." -Captured Tracks.

"..impressively captivating and moving collection of four-tracked bedroom folk of the highest order, with an out-of-time vibe that didnt really snyc with its 1984 recording date. Definitely on the loner-ish end of the folk spectrum, with some aspects of the album harkening back to Skip Spences iconic Oar, while other moments revealed the urgency of the 80s lo-fi revolution. But most importantly, the songs were just really, really great and managed to remain haunting long past their leaving." - Michael Klausman (regarding his self titled debut LP). Original sealed copies of his 1991 private cassette, the only release after the 1985 LP, which is somewhat "known" amongst folk/psych/private collectors (and mentioned in Acid Archives despite the later date). These recordings arent quite as desolate and a bit more "lo-fi" than the LP, but still a very worthwhile listen..

Title: Unikuva
Format: LP
Label: Shadoks
Country: Germany
Price: $41.00
2014 release. “Shadoks Music presents the reissue of Sessions only album, Unikuva (1974). Session was a Finnish rock band founded in 1970. They played the typical experimental rock common of the 70s but added their own touch of creativity to the music. While the majority of the lyrics were in Finnish, their music stands out compared to most progressive rock bands. Their most active time period was between 1972 and 1974 when they released two 7" singles and one album, Unikuva (1974). After disbanding in 1975, some of the members joined Elonkorjuu. But Session is rarer and as good or even better. If Charlies is the Finnish equivalent of the Cream, Session might work in the same musical style as bands such as IF and other progressive rock bands on the Vertigo label. Unikuva is a strong progressive rock album with loud guitar solos, organ, electric piano, horns and most significantly, fierce, driving bass. 180 gram vinyl. Comes in a heavy sleeve with a two-page insert and an A2 poster. Edition of 500 (numbered).” - Shadoks.

Title: Isolation!
Format: LP
Label: BIN
Country: Denmark
Price: $33.00
Reissue of the 1985 release, replicating the silk screened plastic cover of the original. Limited edition of 250 copies.

Subtitled “Meinhof in Memoriam,” this is the first and last solo release by Settels, who describes herself in her liner notes as a composer of “electronic music for spiritual survival.” Settels was born and raised in New York, where she studied composition before emigrating to Europe and getting involved with EMS/Fylkingen, working at IRCAM, and studying with Boulez and Xenakis (as described in the label write-up, below). She eventually built her own studio, and was behind every facet of this very fully-realized LP, from the music to the design, liners, and distribution. Alongside her academic credentials, the inclusion of an excerpt from this LP on the 1988 “Angelic Tecnology 1” comp— alongside Merzbow, Conrad Schnitzler, Asmus Tietchens, Bene Gesserit, P16D4, DDAA, the Haters, etc (put together by by Hironari Iwata of Toukaseibunshi, etc; see the attached image)— is probably telling…

“Roberta Settels (1929 - 2014) was an American composer and industrial designer, living in Stockholm, Sweden. She studied composition at Juilliard in New York, and during the 70s and 80s, composed electronic music in Stockholm at EMS, and in Paris at IRCAM, and studied with the composers Pierre Boulez and Iannis Xenakis. Later she created her own studio. “Isolation!” from 1985 is her only released recording. It was released on her private label Music in Crisis. Although Isolation was composed in 1985, most parts of it sound very fresh and contemporary. Very unique for its time, the timbres and formal progression of the work bare little resemblance to the electroacoustic maximalism of the period. Rather it shares aesthetics with contemporary genres such as lowercase and microsound. The music, all generated by pure analog means, contains elements of extreme minimalism and splicing-techniques derived from the tape-music tradition. Even though the work, making clever use of sine-waves and white noise, it is very minimal in its expression, and very clearly communicates the emotional states of lonliness and isolation which are its conceptual aim. The work is divided into four parts: Landscape With 3 tape-recorders And... , Scenario, Isolation (Meinhof In Memoriam) and P1 - Information?, forming a perceived whole. This release comes with a custom-made plastic sleeve, with cover-notes in Swedish, English, German and French, written and designed by the composer.” - BIN.

"Severance & Cassidy was a duo playing folk rock in the late 70s and early 80s in New Hampshire. Don Severance: songwriter, guitar and vocals Gary Cassidy: bass and vocals. In 1978, they were playing clubs, concerts, and parties full-time throughout New Hampshire and into Vermont. Their sound evolved from their interest in the acoustic, melodic, and harmony-driven music that was popular at the time. Don was strongly influenced by the guitar and harmony work of Peter, Paul And Mary and the songwriting and vocals of Simon And Garfunkel. In addition, bands such as America and Crosby, Stills And Nash were on the charts adding their brand of folk rock to the musical landscape. Gary came from a background of country music, and with his deep, rich, full-range vocals and his strong bass skills, they created a sound that felt larger than most other duos in the area. If you like obscure and mellow folk rock of the 1970s, this is a must-have album." -Riverman

Format: LP
Label: Medical
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"Medical Records presents two of the most striking and iconic reissues in its catalog. Second up of the two Severed Heads reissues is 1985s City Slab Horror. Severed Heads are one of the most diverse and expert sound palette engineers and are also repeatedly overlooked and far underrated. Hailing from Sydney, Australia, they formed in 1979. The band was composed of many different members though its existence but Tom Ellard has always been the constant since 1979 when he joined the band. The groups early recordings were characterized by manipulated tape loop experiments, cleverly modulated noise elements and repetition. This period is very well suited to the early industrial period. Over time, the sounds morphed into more melodic leanings with pop elements and more prominent synth leads and backbone. City Slab Horror was released in 1985 on UK-based Ink records. The LP, though coming two years after Since the Accident, continues to carry the torch illustrating the evolving transition between experimental structure and loops into the catchy pop hooks that would later define such releases as Rotund for Success. This LP seems to move slightly into darker territory in general with its synth textures and slower tempo tracks but overall has a nice continuation feel from Since the Accident yet with obvious technological evolutions. The opening track Spasm drags the listener down the Sev Head mental rabbit hole instantly with its heady samples and eloquent drum machine rhythm. Spitoon Thud is a rambunctious affair with its cacophony of samples and percussion. 4.W.D. is a great sneak peek into the sound of the Sev Heads LPs to come with its treated vocals and pop hooks (perfected on later records such as The Big Bigot). Next to last is the amazing Goodbye Tonsils track which is unstoppably catchy and features more of the creative use of samples which made this group so interesting. Though signed to 80s industrial label icon Nettwerk in North America and often classified in the same vein, these records are not easily definable and actually have a life of their own. Though commonly misclassified with a lot of the late 80s industrial/goth scene (as well as touring with Skinny Puppy at one point), Severed Heads would be more accurately in good company with acts such as Cabaret Voltaire, early Coil, Chris & Cosey (and CTI), and the like. Long out of print and a rarity on the collectors market, it is presented with original repro jacket. Remastered by Tom Ellard from the original source masters.

Difficult to classify, it is a masterpiece of electronic music. The opening track Relic of the Empire is a slow sequenced magnificent piece with time-stretched samples overlaid with multiple tracks to create a symphony quite unlike anything heard before. The hit Dead Eyes Opened (charted in 1985 as a single) is a dance floor friendly track with crafted synth hooks fused with bursts of noise intertwining with interesting vocal samples. Gashing the Old Mae West is a perfect example of how the record can take a dark turn into the style of the earlier Sev Heads with jagged industrial crunched out tape loops and folding in and out samples.

“Instigated with “Kassettmusik” (iDEAL, 2008) and its suffocating minimalism, carefully elaborated into the brutish musique concréte of “Bristning” (RTB, 2009) to later fully blossom into the crude reel-to-reel odysseys of “Vidöppna Sår” (PAN, 2010) and “Vittra Sönder” (Throne Heap, 2012), “Nära” pretty much feels like the perfect culmination of the Sewer Election explorations of the last five years or so. Perhaps the most laid back and mellow Sewer Election so far, “Nära” blends the now very beautifully executed tape-manipulations with sparse oscillating tones and a heavy but at the same time subtle use of everyday life recordings from the near surroundings.” - Matthias Andersson, Fördämning Fanzine, April 2014.

Format: LP
Label: Pan
Country: UK
Price: $33.00
"Following on from his Kassettmusik release, Vidöppna Sår is an evolution in scum-brow field recordings and voice recorded to mono tape -- akin to OU Revue -- recorded on a building site. This record shows the development, as witnessed from his recent live performances, of aggressive blur build-up and ominous restraint, tape speed replacing effect pedals, going beyond the mere junk noise description and closer to the original idea of musique concrete, namely altering everyday sounds onto tape into a wholly other vocabulary. Sewer Election is Dan Johansson, based in Gothenburg, Sweden. He is most known for his extreme and nasty noise on often limited edition cassettes and obscure vinyl releases on labels such as iDEAL, Troniks, Chondritic Sound, Release the Bats!, Freak Animal, Segerhuva, and Gameboy to name a few. He is a member of the Swedish collective Utmarken and lo-fi group Attestupa. What separates him from the rest of the wall-of-noise heads is that he is great at creating uncomfort and filth. To experience his stuff is like experiencing pure power and energy through subtle and restrained soundscapes of a world falling into pieces. The LP is mastered by Viktor Ottosson and 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.

"Sex Church is a band from Vancouver, Canada. Their music is inspired by depression, frustration, disappointment and other such inner turmoils that are the sources of great works of art. Like bands such as The Wipers and Cheater Slicks, Sex Church takes that gloom and doom and spews it out in a punk and garage blueprint mixed with some hard driving krautrock repetitiveness as well as melodic shoegaze elements and turn something ugly into something beautiful. "6 Songs by Sex Church", their debut full length LP, shows the world what this band is truly capable of featuring moody numbers like "Old Enough" "I Dont Wanna Die" and "The Floor", as well ripping hard driving numbers like "Not Anymore" "Ghost" and "Mistaken". A perfect follow up to their single on Sweet Rot Records and a perfect record for fans of bummer rock n drone. First edition of 500" -Convulsive

Price: $15.00
"Still waters run deep but wild waters run deeper. Both when fronting San Fran free-punk body-music trio Mi Ami or performing angst-dance psycho-dramas under his solo alias, Sex Worker, Daniel Martin-McCormick always succeeds in generating total motion (and emotion) and breaking the fourth wall. His vision of tranced/anguished rhythm questing hits an apex on The Labor Of Love, his LP debut under the Sex Worker guise, and weve been soaking in its dark arts for months. Pulsing, lo-fi kraut electronics bubble and sputter under hazy arcs of weirdo vocal smear. Escapist disco drum machines cruise into the horizon under a canopy of dubby accents and FX percussion, sometimes peaking in harsh frenzies of echo-scream meltdowns. All three pieces function as anthems or elegies or protest songs articulating Daniels heavy anti-sex trafficking/enslaved bodies activist agenda but you dont have to know the depths of the ethical framework to grasp the vibe. An intensely unique and hyper-personal statement from one of our favorite West Coast music-dreamers. Black vinyl LPs in jackets designed by the artist. Edition of 450." - Not Not Fun.

"In a weird case of life imitating art imitating life, Daniel Martin-McCormicks sophomore Sex Worker full length, Waving Goodbye, coincidentally gets released on the very day he embarks on his transamerican relocation road trip from the Bay to Brooklyn. Waving goodbye indeed. Sad times for California, but at least his parting gift/LP is as haunting and poignant and vivid as these six dance-damaged life/love/loss anthems. A huge evolutionary pole-vault upwards from 2009s The Labor Of Love, here the SW art-pulse echo-anguish aesthetic has been refined and reborn into fresh neon-smeared street grime crooner ballads (Cool Boy, Tough Love), sprawling forlorn trancefloor fantasias (Next To You, Honeymoon Babylon), plus a killer loner-ized Corona cover. Recorded over several months in SF and mastered in Berlin, WG is clearly his peak achievement to date and weve been jamming the shit out of it.

"The Sha is a three piece collective made up of Matthew Earle, Adam Sussmann, and Christian Durham. Those names will seem familiar to those keeping up with the wealth of releases coming out on Earles Breakdance the Dawn imprint for the past decade plus. XNoBBQX, XWave, Love Chants, Sun of the Seventh Sister are just a few of the very many projects they dabble in. In The Sha the trio go into definitively psychedelic territory – sometimes of the rock variety, sometimes of a more experimental variety. On this self-titled cassette (their U.S. debut) the improvisations tend towards sustained repetition. They open the tape with an entrancing guitar number that stretches out over endless 1-2-1-2 drums, begging the question how one can maintain such a beat for such a prolonged time? And invoking notions of free and hippy rockers all the same. A later electronic and feedback drenched number is broken up by the occasional flourishes of harmonica and vocals – challenging the machines with simple acoustics to remind us that, however otherworldly it is, this music is in fact made by man.

"Shackamaxon began back in 2001 when members of Double Leopards, Son of Earth and Magik Markers united to record and create music together. Since that time, the ensemble has quietly unleashed their psychedelic drift through a handful of live performances and a self-released CDr. Their self-titled debut LP presents four pieces of restrained beauty that encapsulates the Shackamaxon sound. The album begins with a side-long excursion where sparse organic textures become enveloped in cavernous layers of sound and perpetually fuzzed drones. It is a steady swell which builds to immense heights before fading into the expanse. Side two starts off with a brief introduction of fluttering tones, then diverges into an intricate passage of controlled feedback chatter and subtle reverberations. The album concludes with what sounds like a field recording from an alien rain forest, capturing strange creatures chirping and gurgling as the humidity drips from the canopy. ..beautiful cover art by Amy Borezo." - HP Cycle.

Format: Double CD
Label: Kye
Country: USA
Price: $28.00
"The Shadow Ring formed in the seaside town of Folkestone, England in 1993. Over the course of a decade, and through eight LPs, Graham Lambkin, Darren Harris and later Tim Goss scraped out a unique musical pathway for themselves, armed with only the barest of tools. With each release the Shadow Ring presented themselves as a group in constant flux. Naive acoustic improvisations, dour bedroom sci-fi epics, cryptic D.I.Y. theatre and glacial electronic soundscapes all became fair game in their hands. The group recorded for some of the premier underground labels of the era: Siltbreeze, Corpus Hermeticum, Swill Radio and their own Dry Leaf Discs were all at one time or another called home. The Shadow Ring were also champions of the absurd -- never playing live in their home country, they instead performed 23 shows across the US between 1995-97. The life of the Shadow Ring finally came to pass on the banks of the Hudson River in 2003. Life Review offers a celebration of the Shadow Rings oeuvre -- from the green chaos of 1993s Dont Open The Window 7" on through to the austerity of 2003s Im Some Songs LP. Featuring material from each of their albums: City Lights, Put The Music In Its Coffin, Wax-Work Echoes, Live In U.S.A., Hold Onto I.D., Lighthouse, Lindus and Im Some Songs, alongside 7" A and B sides, comp appearances, and a clutch of previously unreleased live and studio work, Life Review is an anthology that will serve both the aged fan, and the curious newcomer. Expertly mastered by long-time enthusiast Bhob Rainey, Life Review flushes out the rich sonic detail of the Shadow Rings music like never before. Housed in a deluxe six-panel digipak, with an accompanying 16 page color booklet of photos, flyers, sleeve art etc, Life Review also offers an untainted visual history of the group. With 34 tracks -- personally chosen by Graham Lambkin, and a running time of 154 minutes, Life Review offers the perfect chance to say a final farewell. One more time." -KYE. Very highly recommended!

"Long delayed follow-up to Lighthouse. Over the last decade no other band have prompted such strong reaction as The Shadow Ring. Loved or hated, their unique and powerful sound has been totally impossible to ignore. Lindus sees that sound polarized to its logical and most satisfying extreme. Strange, claustrophobic sound-worlds build and overlap, creating a listening environment that is uncompromising, disturbing, yet always original. The mood is bleak and deflated throughout, providing a stark contrast to the carnival that was Lighthouse. The simple use of synths, electronics, tapes and voice has never been more effective. The Shadow Ring are that rare thing: a true underground band unaffected by trend or whim, and Lindus is their most supreme statement yet. Special edition of 500 copies." - Swill Radio.

In the late 60s, they moved from Milwaukee to California, where they played at all the major venues and ballrooms, supporting famous bands like Jefferson Airplane and The Who. In 1969, the band recorded a demo at Pacific High Recordings in San Francisco, at the same time as the Grateful Dead were recording their classic Working Mans Dead album there. The demo was in fact a fully-finished album of bombastic psychedelia, acid-rock and proto-prog with loud fuzz-wah guitars, long tracks, crazy percussion and killer flute.

Price: $17.00
"In 1968, three sisters from Fremont, New Hampshire strapped on their instruments and declared themselves The Shaggs. At that moment begun a peculiar tale that would last far beyond the groups five-year run. Dot, Betty and Helen (and occasionally Rachel, the fourth sister) played in the group on the insistence of their father, Austin Wiggin Jr., who was convinced they were going to be big. Years earlier, Austins mother gave him a palm reading, predicting that her son would marry a strawberry blonde woman, that he would have two sons after his mother died, and that his daughters would form a popular music outfit. The first two became reality, so Austin was certain the third would follow suit. With pure confidence and his mothers bold prediction, Austin decided that his daughters would forgo attending the local high school in favor of home schooling interspersed with a strict regiment of instrumental and vocal practice, along with jumping jacks and sit-ups. Soon after The Shaggs would enter Fleetwood Recording studios in Revere, Massachusetts to record their sole album, Philosophy Of The World, a collection of garage rock tunes that balanced charm and discordance in equal measure. Austin would spend most of his savings not only on the session but also on the manufacturing costs to press up 1,000 copies of the album (900 of which mysteriously vanished upon completion). Throughout Philosophy Of The World simple truths are revealed through the pen of sister Dot, the songwriter of the band. The rich people want what the poor people got, just as the poor people want what the rich people got. Your parents love you. There is happiness in nearness and sadness in the farness. The album failed to fulfill Austins expectations of rock stardom, though the group remained together until their fathers death, performing frequently at the Fremont town hall and a local nursing home, no further albums were released. That might have been the end of it, until rock band NRBQ discovered a copy at a Massachusetts radio station and re-released it in 1980. Rolling Stones reviewer at the time described it as the most stunningly awful wonderful record Ive heard in ages. Nearly 50 years later, the album ranks among the most polarizing LPs of all time. Some said it was the worst thing ever made. Others felt it was one of the great long players of the 20th century. Frank Zappa famously dubbed the band better than The Beatles, while Kurt Cobain placed the album at #5 on his list of Top 50 favorite albums. Original copies of the album fetch for $10,000. Decades later and one could argue that maybe Austin was right all along. Were all here, still enthralled by the purity of The Shaggs.

"Glistening Examples is proud to present “leave/trace," the vinyl debut of Grisha Shakhnes. Formerly operating under the name of Mites, Shakhnes has been recording and performing in Tel Avi, Israel since 2008. His work has been issued both privately in limited handmade CD-R editions, and internationally though Alamut Records (Jerusalem), Mystery Sea (Belgium), and Copy For Your Records (NYC). Consider "leave/trace" a graduation ceremony, as Shakhnes steps away from pseudonymity and into the bright lights of his own exceptional music. "leave/trace" offers a compelling display of musical abstraction, blending field recordings from peculiar and mundane origins into sumptuously detailed and surreally original new forms. Shakhnes is deftly able to capture and juxtapose otherwise overlooked details of commonplace events, placing his work at the fulcrum of contemporary tape music. Never overly literal, "leave/trace" instead allows the listener to find their own way through its compositions, granting rich reward for those willing to make the journey. “leave/trace” is a beautiful LP, published in an edition of 500 copies." -Glistening Examples.

"Sam Shalabi presents Isis And Osiris; a dystopian fantasia for ud ruminations and iterated tape manipulations. Listening to Sams music or playing with him is always a psychedelic bliss. When Isis And Osiris penetrates my ears I am possessed by an emergent universe where immanence and alienation, abjection and love meet. Nothing will be the same. The transformative effect of Sam Shalabis cosmology is one of the most joyful and inspiring estrangement I experienced." - Alexander St. Onge; Montreal, Quebec, March 2016.
"Sam Shalabi is an Egyptian-Canadian composer, improviser and guitarist living between Montreal and Cairo. Starting out during the late 70s punk era, his work has evolved into an experimental synthesis of modern Arabic Music that incorporates free improvisation, traditional Arabic music, noise, classical, text, and jazz. He has released five solo albums, five albums with Shalabi Effect, a free improvisation quartet that bridges western psychedelic music and Arabic Maqam and three albums with Land Of Kush, an experimental 30-member orchestra for which he composes. He has appeared on over 30 albums and toured Europe, North America and North Africa. Projects include collaborations with Alvarius B, Stefan Christoff and The Dwarves Of East Agouza, a Cairo-based trio with Maurice Louca and Alan Bishop. He is a founding member of Shalabi Effect." - Nashazphone.

"Unrocks Saraswati Series is mostly string orientated, zigzagging between the lines where underground and high-art performance overlap. Out jumps the first part of their actively anti-Western sub-series: Mother Of All Sinners, a part of the "Puppet on a String" twin albums. Osama Shalabi, a born Egyptian (best known for his work with Shalabi Effect & Land Of Kush), is an expert playing the oud. Hes a traveler between the Eastern and Western worlds and long-time contributor to the Montreal scene. Sam - who spent the last few years home in Cairo - breathes his own sense of space and time through the epic "Tamara", an 18 minute long melodic, delightful improvisation. The other story, "Faith Of Our Fathers", starts in Agouza, Cairo, where Sam Shalabi and Alan Bishop spent some time jamming. Theyd run free, lose form, find intensity, and wound up creating a contemporary version of oriental psychedelic free form. A mind-blowing, wild, never mellow Cairo night, now documented here. Its getting intense: A north-African sand storm. Mother Of All Sinners will be released as a one-time limited run pressing on 140 gram vinyl. It has an extra heavy deluxe cover and a solid printed inlay." - Unrock.

"Debut release from Londons Shallow Sanction. A refreshing but authentic take on the lineage referencing bands such as early Christian Death, Amebix, and Conflict. Shallow Sanction rejects the otherwise in the red and overly distorted approach of recent years for a more honest, stripped down and raw gothic punk sorely missing from many of their contemporaries. An aggressive, only man left feel runs through the EP. An isolated and anthemic voice echoes along cold rainy drums and bloody nose bass, accented by the unusual introduction of effects and smartly placed electronics along the way in an otherwise skeletal and frightfully nuts and bolts morbid punk sound. Shallow Sanction evokes a nihilistic, apocalyptic, youthful, urban mentality set in old London coiling in on itself. Edition of 300." - Hospital Productions.

"The Vienna-based trios second LP following 2013s crushing debut Licht (BLACKEST 016LP), Crack finds Peter Rehberg (Editions Mego), Christina Nemec (comfortzone), and Christian Schachinger crafting a powerful alloy of extreme electroacoustic music, luminous ambience, and the mineral fundaments of rock and black metal. Opener "Spalt" immediately signals a departure from the monolithic doom of Licht, conveying instead a sense of adrenalized movement, of acceleration toward an ever-receding horizon. There is no percussion, yet Nemecs chasmic bass and Rehbergs protean electronics give rise to an unstoppable momentum. Schachingers highly lyrical, spiraling guitar improvisations nod to Fripp and Göttsching, but Shampoo Boys vision of the cosmos is more hard-boiled and unforgiving than that of their forefathers. On "Riss," slow, ceremonial down-strokes suggest a return to Licht, with the addition of Rehbergs unintelligible conversation-snippets, machine noise, and nameless natural currents mingling in pernicious hybrid forms that curl and ricochet about the stereo field. Subterranean bass tones, meanwhile, seem to reverberate from an ancient and appalling source. Its typical of Cracks unorthodox Weltanschauung, however, that just when we think the game is up, we are faced not with oblivion but with potential absolution: "Riss"s closing section is a gravely serene tone-painting. Side B is given in its entirety to the three-part "Bruch," the most potent and pugilistic manifestation of Shampoo Boys brute psychedelia to date. Part I is a near-gothic assemblage of tortured computer processing, abyssal drones, and stray industrial noise. This gives way to the calm but agonized concrète of part II, sparse, minimalist, dub-damaged. The broiling digital synthesis of part III complements annihilating slow-motion riffage; a thuggish monochord attack that feels almost Stooge-ian -- grungy, swaggering, sewer-savvy -- but doubles back into abstraction. It becomes impossible to distinguish individual instruments, processes, or contributions; the group mind takes over, the third eye is on fire, and the album climaxes in a black flash of negative ecstasy. Epic in scale, complex in mood, and dazzling in technique, Crack is a momentous achievement from three improvising musicians at the height of their powers. A lived-in and emotionally charged work, harrowing but energizing, it is also a sustained achievement of arrangement and post-production remarkable even in light of its makers pedigree: the harshest and heaviest passages are rendered with a sense of space and richness of detail that is truly otherworldly. Russell Haswells astute mastering amplifies this, resulting in one a supremely exhilarating and rewarding work." - Blackest Ever Black.

"Licht is the debut album by Shampoo Boy, a new guitar, bass and electronics trio from Vienna, comprising members Christian Schachinger, Christina Nemec, and Peter Rehberg. Schachinger and Rehberg have played together in various projects over the last 25 years, most notably Peterlicker -- see Last Slave (2010) and Nicht (2011), both released on Editions Mego. Schachinger was also involved in Der Scheitel, their album In einem Haus das Liebe heißt being a classic of German "Schlagermusik." Rehberg currently operates the Editions Mego family of labels and is a member of KTL, R/S, and Fenn OBerg as well as working on theater productions with Gisele Vienne, and with choreographer Margret Gudjonsdottir. Nemecs background is in avant-rock and industrial outfits such as Bray and her own performance group SV Damenkraft. She remains highly active as a solo artist, both as Chra and under her own name, and she has performed on several occasions with Lydia Lunch. Licht is made up of four improvisations recorded and mixed at Twisted, Wien between April 2012 and January 2013. Mastered by Noel Summerville at 3345, London.

Title: Improvisations
Format: LP
Label: Doxy
Country: Russian Federation
Price: $25.00
"Some of the first eastern-jazz fusion ever recorded, finally reissued on LP. Originally recorded in 1962 for World Pacific and featuring jazz musicians Gary Peacock on bass and Bud Shank on flute, the album opens with improvisations on the theme that Shankar wrote for the 1955 Indian neorealist film Pather Panchali, by legendary Indian filmmaker Satyajit Ray. Fire Night was another jazz-fusion piece, recorded to commemorate the fires that were burning all around LA when this session was recorded. The remaining two tracks, however, are traditional Indian pieces and serve to juxtapose the two major styles in Indian classical music. The first piece, Karnataki, is in the Carnatic (southern Indian) style, while the second, Raga Rageshri, is in the (northern) Hindustani style (which, of course, Shankars himself was a master of). Includes original liner notes. Comes on 180 gram vinyl." - Doxy.

"Instruments: camel bells, glass by Alison Chism, oscillator, voice / body, electric bass, field recordings, air drum, bottillia, dilruba, electronic devices, electric guitar, marimba, lira, erhu, all sorts percussion. Mike Shannon is an artist with an extensive history in sound. starting back in the late 60s in Florida, moving to San Francisco in 1977, on to Seattle in 1994, and now in November of 2002, moving back to Florida, he has covered much territory, not only on land but in sound. most of his activity have been under- or undocumented (though a large archive exists), but he did publish cassettes of some projects through his own Joy Street Studios label throughout the 80s and early 90s. the body of work that he has amassed over the last twenty five years included so much good material, and of such varying types, it was hard to decide what to release when we started to think about issuing some of his material. there could have easily been a record of just electronic work, or of just solo acoustic instruments (western and non-western), or just natural recordings, let alone all the group work (from playing in electronic performance ensemble Earnerve to Jeph Jermans animist orchestra, and many places in between). in the end we settled on a work which he assembled originally in 1993 (newly edited and mixed for LP with added sections from 1972), as it represented so many of these aspects and seem to flow together so well. so we have minimal sections blending a street hawker in London with electronic tones, field recordings, percussion, string sections, a dilruba solo played with a chopstick, and a section which on first hearing I thought must have been a full ensemble of people playing, sounding as it does like music from some far off lost island (in truth it ends up he played the whole thing through multi-tracking). this I hoped would serve as an introduction to the world of Mikes music, as it certainly deserves more attention. produced in a limited edition of 204 copies, with screen printed cover." - Anomalous.

“This album by Shapednoise opens with the violent techno deconstruction of "Witness of a Heart Attack Death," an oddly syncopated gallop through hard layers of analog scree and earth-breaking kicks.

Everything is darkened with sonic dirt and dismal vibes but remains nuanced, layered and highly dynamic.” - Opal Tapes.

Shark Move is one of the Indonesian rock pioneering bands who combined rock music with traditional harmonies and progressive sounds. Some songs on this LP have English lyrics. While other bands at that time were still playing sweet music, this is really an experimental recording. Unfortunately, at the end of 1970, the keyboard player passed away so Benny decided not to continue with his band and formed a new one named Giant Step. A very complex prog album which is as strong as many good UK albums of the same period but it has a little something extra which makes this album unique and great." - Shadoks.

"Greatness of this caliber hasnt come out of Saint Louis since the late great Drunks With Guns! SHAVED WOMENs debut 12" is a pretty brutal piece of wax, with equal parts 80s hardcore and pigfuck noise rock. This eponymous piece of powerful brilliance mixes Black Flag-esque choruses and tough-as-nails AmRep-y verses, bridges, and breakdowns seamlessly. Just imagine what Black Flag wouldve sounded like in the early-90s, if they ditched Henry and hooked up with a fictional emphysema-riddled Keith Morris instead. Sounds pretty righteous, huh? Not as righteous as this record will once it hits your turntable. Its a 12" EP full of no-nonsense punk fucking rock that reminiscent of a seemless mix of Francis Harold and the Holograms and Pissed Jeans. This record feels like a mutant monster truck going In The Red. A fist-pumping, melodic, instantly memorable, hooky record with 7 full-on shout-alongs to pass down to posterity. Its fucking relentless, is what it is and it sounds way more like a crew of hairy-ass fat dudes than a shaved women, but Shaved Women is an awesome band name, isnt it? I digress, those with a little less testosterone under the hood, will be stoked to hear that the last cut on side A, Same In The End, has a killer mid-tempo, groovy, downer vibe that out-weirds most weird punks going all the way back to when punk first started getting weird and the band is tighter than a pair of the tightest skinny jeans. In fact, this author would go as far as to say that Shaved Women must bring a serious amount of mosh with them when they perform live. Furthermore, Choices contains some of the most damaged bass playing Ive heard in ages and the last cut on the underside is a fucking killer Die Kruezen cover (Think For Me).

Country: UK
Price: $26.00
""The music of this record was stimulated by the theory and practice of biofeedback. It is aimed to create a calm, relaxed, meditative mood associated with alpha brain wave" --original back cover. Part outsider electronic album, part physiological experiment, part work of art, this is not your average new age record. The brainchild of a reclusive Israeli multimedia artist fascinated with philosophy, technology, and sound by the name of Ami Shavit, In Alpha Mood is the result of a personal and artistic effort to both overcome a personal trauma and push the boundaries of a fledgling physiological understanding while utilizing the burgeoning domestic synthesizer technology of the late 60s and early 70s. Shavit sought to combine his love of electronic music acts likeTangerine Dream, Philip Glass, and synthesizer technology with his fascination with the relatively new technique of biofeedback, but his work was interrupted when, in 1973, he was conscripted into the army during the Yom Kippur War. As he struggled to come to terms with his wartime experiences, he began adding battlefield soundbites to his recordings, and found a sort of catharsis. He returned to his work, and soon a longtime friend and owner of the Mango record shop (a Tel Aviv institution at the time) suggested he press some of his recordings on vinyl. Rather than cull disparate excerpts from his expansive tape archive of home recordings, Shavit began what would become the culmination of his years of experimentation and the centerpiece of his work with the music-induced state of working relaxation he called Alpha Mood. Recorded in Shavits studio during a handful of sessions with no post-production, In Alpha Mood was mastered at Triton Studios (where Arik Einstein and Tamouz had also recorded), pressed by Hed Arzi Music (one of Israels oldest and largest labels and manufacturers), and released on Shavits Amis Records in 1977. Only 500 copies of a planned run of 5000 were pressed, and, with no publicity, it was sold to discerning record-buyers with little or no understanding of the record or its maker outside of his status as a prominent visual artist. Apart from a handful of Alpha Mood exhibitions in Israel, those 500 copies and six remaining master tapes (including that of In Alpha Mood) are the only remaining artifacts of Shavits Alpha Mood experiments. This first vinyl reissue of In Alpha Mood was remastered from the original master tapes sourced from Shavits private archive." - Finders Keepers.

Price: $16.00
"She were an all-girl band from Sacramento, California, that operated between 1964 and 1971 and were led by sisters Nancy and Sally Ross. Unlike most acts ascribed to the "girls-with-guitars" genre, She was one hundred per cent authentic - they genuinely played their own instruments, sang and wrote their own striking but original material and copped one hell of a bad attitude that would put most self-proclaimed rebel boy bands to shame. Appealingly crude in their early incarnation as the Hairem, by their later years She was a force to be reckoned with. The group became a massively popular live attraction in northern California but unfortunately never made a commercial breakthrough, despite healthy airplay for their lone release on the Kent label, the classic Outta Reach. Far, far more than a mere novelty, musically and philosophically She were in a class of their own, with drop-dead good looks and such memorable tunes as Like A Snake, Piece Of You and Bad Girl. And indeed She were bad girls, getting thrown out of movie theatres and even the California State Capitol building for their disruptive behaviour and smart-ass punk attitude. Truly the female equivalent of the Stones." B Side features recordings as The Hairem. Limited..

"Empty Cellar Records is more than stoked to present the sophomore full-length LP by San Franciscos elusive pop wizard, DYLAN SHEARER, at once a continuation of his distinctive and infectious melodic sensibilities and an evolution, fully exploring the romance and isolation only hinted at in previous releases. "There is a new specter among us. Dylan Shearers throaty baritone seems to have been borne on the slow-moving winds off some far-away coast. Plaintive and honest, his voice recalls Syd Barrett, Bill Fay, Skip Spence, and others whose words and melodies never seemed in a rush to get anywhere, yet always arrived fully formed in the listeners ear nonetheless. Porchpuddles, Shearers second full length and first for San Franciscos hodge-podge Empty Cellar records, is rare in its perfect timelessness. Sounds are heard and understood perfectly, yet the combination of these sounds is beyond a simple pop understanding. Songs of longing and songs of seeming indifference are bedded together seamlessly. Perhaps, questions about the records origin and its mysterious creator will abound, for taken at face value, Porchpuddles has little to no recognizable counterpart in todays one-hit warehouse. Indeed, there is a new specter among us; let us all welcome in the ghost of the present."-Tim Cohen. This first pressing (limited to 500 copies) comes in a classic uncoated tip-on sleeve.
