Title: Great Dose of Monotonous Techno
Format: LP
Label: Digitalis
Country: USA
Price: $21.00
"Calling someone "ahead of his/her time" is straight out of Music Marketing 101 and is a claim that rarely holds much merit. On occasion, though, its a phrase that is entirely appropriate and accurate. Joel Brindefalk was as integral a part of Swedens premiere off-kilter dance label, Börft, as anyone outside its founders, Jan Svensson (FRAK, etc), Birre Isgren (FRAK, etc), and, eventually, Joachim Nordwall (Skull Defekts, etc). While Brindefalks work under monikers such as Contemporary Punk Unit(CPU), Egglady, and others showcased his skill and range as a producer, it was always Ü that impressed most. In 1992, still just a teenager, he was, in fact, very much ahead of his time. Great Dose of Monotonous Technowas released on cassette to little fanfare and festered in obscurity for years. As Börft and Digitalis formed a collaborative partnership in 2010, reissuing this album became a top priority. Recently, as the worlds of noise and techno have again begun to merge, Brindefalks early experiments sound almost prophetic with their relentless repetition, formless shape, acid tingers, and simple, pounding rhythms. Great Dose of Monotonous Techno is the perfect title for this record. It contains music whose impact is felt through its crushing loops and gloomy melodies. Ü might make people dance, but does so begrudgingly. There is an undercurrent of angst flowing throughout Great Dose, adding another edge to an album already cut with razors. Sadly, Brindefalk passed away in February of 2013 as this reissue was finally coming to fruition. He leaves a serious void in Swedish underground electronic music, but his legacy will only continue to grow. Remastered from the original tapes by Brindefalk friend and pupil Andreas Tilliander at Repeatle. Cut to vinyl by Helmut Erler at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin. Original artwork and layout by Christian Carlssonmodified for vinyl by Brad Rose." - Digitalis.

Title: Go Grey
Format: LP
Label: Siltbreeze
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"The second full-length release by U.S. Girls is an even more fully realized excursion into a hazy alternate universe where pop vocals and muzzy scree fuse in harmony. Go Grey conjures up ambient aerosols while luminous kaleidoscopes of sound sizzle, peak, and explode. Megan Remy is a chanteuse from (perhaps) the future, guiding all who choose to sail an evocative trip through her unique aural hallucinogenic landscapes. Its a journey of lush vistas, warm currents, and complex beauties. 23nd-Century-style, of course. So come aboard and see why U.S. Girls is being hailed the Eno of the 50s--the 2250s! Can you imagine? Lets hope so." - Siltbreeze.

Hear the sound of a skull full of quartz being pounded by tiny yet powerful hands and listen to her inveigling vocals, the kind of thing Phil Spector hears in his pill poping nightmares. Note to Prog logs, this baby is a short and sweet slide (19mins)." -Chocolate Monk. Previous release on Siltbreeze.

"If the alluring moniker used by Megan Remy conjures images of volleyball teams or cheerleading squads, forget it. Not that theres any doubt that Remy--sorry, U.S. Girls--couldnt rise and conquer either challenge. Like fellow DIY ingenues Sally Strobelight and Inca Ore, U.S. Girls approach is deceptively ethereal and delightfully haunting; lithe, lysergic gamma rays of keyboard murk beamed over percussive bonk sort of resemble Diamanda Galas reinterpreting Suicides Red Star. And dig that cover of Bruce Springsteens "Prove It All Night," done in such an effortless, barbital lush youd swear the air was filled with mescaline. Guess what? Its not." - Siltbreeze

Title: Me & Yoko
Format: 7"
Label: Not Not Fun
Country: USA
Price: $6.00
"There⿿s no disputing the truth that certain formats befit certain artists. Think about it: where⿿s the logic in Tangerine Dream rocking a 3-way split 3⿝ CDR? Those fools need room to roam. Conversely, why would Orthrelm drop a 4xLP? Who needs 160 minutes of 8-second spazz songs? The medium is a message, man. And for Megan Remy⿿s brief, brave re-imaginings of guitar/voice pop rapture done under the U.S. Girls flag, the 45 RPM 7 inch single is the absolute dream medium for transporting said sounds to the interested earhole. Short and sweet (and chemical) like a sugar rush, Me + Yoko is her latest reverb-gaze drug nugget in a string of strong singles (following releases on Hardscrabble Amateurs and Cherry Burger), and it⿿s another keeper. Whistling to life with a scrap of found sound/dialogue, the song then wings into a vague, hazed-out stone-toss between 2 tired notes (a dead ringer for that famous Les Rallizes Denudes bass riff), ebbing and flowing beneath smeary streaks of white-washed vocal blur. A Top 40 single for a universe of ghosts. The B, ⿿Rise + Go,⿝ might actually be the more aching of the two, a broke-down bedroom ballad, awash in sad seas of reverb, lapping at the shores of isolated islands, gently sailing into heartbreak. Sounds lo-fi but lush, like it was recorded high on a cloud on a cheap 80s boombox. Imagine that. Black vinyl 45 RPM singles, mastered by Pete Swanson, in photocopied sleeves with art by Remy. Edition of 380." -Not Not Fun

"Here comes US GIRLS resurrecting puzzled memories. Nostalgia to be unsure of, or maybe days lost behind thick shadow. Something is bubbling to the surface, but why is it happening? Strange, this is innocent melody at drift on waves of tape disintegration. Shes a one woman call and responder dialing up minimalist lines and beats. A loner. And of course, these two jams are crooned so hard and with such ease that we fall deep within the emptiness on either side. This is music with plenty of space for being dissolved, and sure, it could even be the gift of an inner door that opens on and on."-Pigeon Row. Edition of 300 copies.

Title: Bitter Suites
Format: LP
Label: Holidays
Country: Italy
Price: $31.00
"Deluxe repress edition of this incredible masterpiece made out of two live performances of the U.S. Steel Cello Ensemble recorded in 1979 at The Showing Room in NYC and at Helen Shlien Gallery in Boston. The Ensemble performs playing large sheets of metal and producing amazingly droning sounds. These live recordings are the result of an evolutionary refinement of instrumental design and playing techniques which Robert Rutman explored and developed after a ten year period of practice. He invented the two only instruments played by the Steel Cello Ensemble: the Bow Chime - a six foot sheet of steel formed into a horizontal curve with an iron bar attached to the top corners of the metal sheet - and the Single String Cello - an eight foot sheet suspended vertically from a stand. This limited reissue has been released in occasion of Bob Rutmans 83rd birthday party concert at Cookies, in Berlin. Edition of 300 copies." -Holidays.

Debut album by Yuya Uchida & The Flowers which was started by Yuya Uchida (born on 17 November 1939) who already was making some rockabilly singles in the early 60s and was one of the opening performers when The Beatles came to Japan in 1966. But when he traveled to Europe in 1967, he was immediately inspired by Cream, Jimi Hendrix and The Who.

Title: Experimental Music of Japan Vol. 8: Assemblage
Format: CD
Label: Edition Omega Point
Country: Japan
Price: $26.00
"This is the eighth volume in Edition Omega Points Experimental Music Of Japan series. Japanese composer and synthesizer artist Kazuo Uehara was born in Osaka in 1949. He studied composition in Tokyo and in New York and is a Professor of Music at the Osaka University of Arts, teaching composition, experimental music and also multi-media performance. His music has been performed in France, Germany, the U.S., and other countries and he has also performed his interactive live music and multi-media pieces at major festivals in Sweden, Bulgaria, Russia, France, Poland, Brazil, China, Korea and other countries. He was the main prize-winner at the Bourge International electroacoustic music competition in 1983. In 1990, he was awarded a grant from the New York State Council on the Arts. He has been producing the International Festival for Contemporary Music in Japan since the 1980s. "Assemblage is a word from the domain of modern art. This is one of the techniques in the expression of art. The word means mixture, originally. I decided that assemblage would be the concept of this CD. A collage by Picasso is similar example. Dadaism is also another similar example. I try to express new directions in music by using the assemblage technique. Music Collage Re-Mix Version is based on the live recording of a performance from Brazil in 1989 -- a collaboration with a Brazilian dancer and her voice. Pont De lAlma De Paris was a piece composed at INA-GRM, which is well-known as the place where musique concrète was created by Pierre Schaeffer. The title of this piece Pont De lAlma is the name of the metro station in Paris. I tried to express the harmony between traditional images and contemporary images of Paris. OTO Mandala 2 -- usually a mandala is created as a visual image but in this piece I tried to create a mandala image by using sound with bandoneon by Miho Kurosawa. Sound Work 1 is the first piece I composed by using a personal computer. I used NEC PC 8-bit which came out in the beginning of the 1980s. I tried to create very simple synthesized sounds. Forest Of Gombe is a piece on the subject of nature from a chimpanzees forest in Africa. Assemblage 2004 was composed using the assemblage technique using various sounds, noises from nature and instruments like piano and biwa. Meteora Version 1.0 is the name of a strange rock from the northern part of Greece. Meteora 1 is created as acousmatic music." Housed in a cardboard paper sleeve. Including newly-written liner notes in Japanese & English by the artist. Limited edition of 400 copies only." - Omega Point.

Title: Obscure Tape Music Of Japan Vol. 15: Event 73
Format: CD
Label: Edition Omega Point
Country: Japan
Price: $27.00
"From 1972 to 1973, I was based in New York for my creative activities and live performances. New York at this time was in its golden age of experimental music. Towards the end of my stay, I held a live performance entitled Event 73 to sum up my creative works in New York. The venue for the performance was The Kitchen of the Mercer Arts Center that provided spaces for innovative and emerging artists. This CD consists of a mixture of sounds that were created at a studio prior to the live performance and the sounds recorded live at the performance. I used the Buckla Synthesizer for electronic sound and also for transformation of the sound. The work has four different segments: 1) Diffusion 2) Condensation 3) Chaos 4) Revolution. Each segments meanings and sounds itself doesnt necessarily correlate to each other. Yet, the images that are evoked by each word express the chaotic world of the day." -Edition Omega Point.

Title: Obscure Tape Music Of Japan Vol. 16: Early Works
Format: CD
Label: Edition Omega Point
Country: Japan
Price: $27.00
"Edition Omega Point presents a collection of early work from Japanese experimental composer Kazuo Uehara. "Seoul 1982 was composed using recorded sounds as raw material to reassemble the historical soundscape of Koreas capital city, Seoul, in the early 1980s. During this time, despite the political chaos and the tension in the city under the Korean military government, I felt the lively energy in peoples lives. The raw material comprised a wide range of different sounds, including the street cries in the downtown, cheerful voices of children in the Namsang area, noise of arterial streets, and conversations of from students at the Seoul National University. Apart from that, the encounter with the Korean traditional percussion music group, Samul Nori, was such a precious moment in my fieldwork. I would like to dedicate this piece to the people in Korea, especially the original members of Samul Nori, and also to the French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson who captured the decisive historic moments. Music For Contemporary Dance is dedicated to Takao Kusuno. In the 1970s, the art space Jean-Jean in Shibuya served as a popular venue for experimental music, theater, dance, etc. Within this movement, I did collaborative works with Takao Kusuno who performed as an artist and dance director. In the 1980s, Kusuno moved his base to Brazil where his outstanding performances won numerous awards until his early passing. This piece was composed in collaboration with Kusuno to explore new approaches for dance. The work has two consecutive parts, subtitled Crows Habit and I Am A Clown. It was not merely contemporary dance, nor Butoh, but it indicated the contemporary room for the dance scene of the time. His work returned home with Brazilian dancers and was staged in Japan in 2009. Science Technology Expo 85 - Music For Cell Universe was specially composed for the Health and Sports Pavilion at the International Exposition, Tsukuba, Japan, 1985. The space was comprised of 27 multiscreen films and stereophonic space. The uniquely designed space controller, the system for moving sound image, made it possible to control the electronic acoustic sound image to create virtual 3D space. Homage To Xenakis was composed at a UPIC workshop held in Tokyo in the 1980s where the composer Iannis Xenakis made remarks on each presented work. The musical composition tool, UPIC, was created by Xenakis, and was developed at the Centre dEtudes de Mathématique et Automatique Musicales (CEMAMu) in Paris. This unique sound synthesis system allows the user to create music by drawing lines on the board. Xenakis originally envisaged this tool to be used for pedagogical purpose. Other than musicians, the workshop drew participants from children to adults. The piece was composed in collaboration with the computer graphic artist Masao Kohmura and others." -Edition Omega Point.

Title: Off the Hook/Screw the System
Format: 7"
Label: Ugly Pop
Country: USA
Price: $7.00
"This storied first-wave Toronto punk outfit have been sadly under-represented on vinyl. Apart from a couple of live comp tracks, their sole 70s waxing was a misguided attempt at a power pop hit single -- not a completely miserable 45, but hardly suggesting the raw power they were capable of. A 90s CD collected their incendiary studio recordings, proving true their live reputation as a rough, hard-edged punk outfit, but that material is tied up by bad contracts and will probably never see legit vinyl release. Now The Ugly are back; while legendary local hooligan and original frontman Mike Nightmare passed away in the 90s, new vocalist Greg Dick (of contemporaries The Dream Dates) is about as capable and credible as they come, and the veteran Ugly trio of drummer Tony Torcher, bassist Screamin Sam Ferrara (both of The Viletones) and guitarist Steve Koch (also of the Demics) are determined to set the record straight. This isnt the usual castrated reunion schtick, either -- the new 45 is as tough as they ever been, swaggering through the topsides punkified early Stones in classic fashion but turning up the aggression on the 1978-vintage flipside, a raw, mean and quick-paced hard punk blast with a grinding guitar recalling early Black Flag or Subhumans. One time pressing of 480 only in swank pocket sleeve with insert, produced by Don Pyle (Crash Kills Five) and cut loud by Peter Moore for maximum impact. No colour vinyl or gimmick versions." - Ugly Pop.

Price: $13.00
"I cant say if it was ale, victuals or the tuneage, but once I got into the thick of this record my whole body began to tingle & my eyes got to sparklin. It reminded me of the scene w/Lawrence Olivier in Marathon Man when he sees them diamonds for the 1st time. I got to readin the inserts & seen one of the main brains on here was Dan Beckman whod also been on that Flak Mask 7" I liked. But he wasnt scratchin out the numbers 11201 on this lotto ticket. In fact, this is just about as opposite of that as they come. Sure its been recorded all over creation, but So Far On The Way breathes deep from the flora n fauna of southern Appalachia rather than the wheezeve urban twiddley-dum. Its corn pone jocularity conjurs up an aura of Doc Snocks hickum & Dans voice is similar enough w/Pete Stampfels to lend an air of friendly Holy Modal Rounders cheer onto the porch. Theys even got the gumption to croak out a haunting dirge-like interpretation of Sun Ras Outer Spaceways Incorporated (here entitled Outter Spaceways). And guess what? It dont suck! Addin this lp in w/the recent spate of great releases whats come out over the past few months, it nestles comfortably between Lord Fyres Destruction At 2013 & The Cherry Blossoms debut (which is gonna get harped on here soon). Id say this is a dinger for comers, be they shoeless or clueless. And how bout that paste on cover & hand stitched lyric book whats enclosed?. I dunno about you, but until Pep Lester releases his lp of Avant-Bluegrass ditties, the bar for goodness starts here." - Siltblog.

Price: $13.00
"Steven R. Smith has had a hand in creating some of the most compelling & singular instrumental psychedelic music of the past ten years. As Ulaan Khol, Smith digs in deep with a palette of drums/guitar/organ to craft a monolithic & expansive freeform, feedback-heavy atmospheric din that bonds the disparate realms of Fushitsusha & High Rise with Popul Vuh & Flying Saucer Attack. Smith has planned a maximalist three-part suite, Ceremony. In this first installment of the trilogy, the tone is overwhelmingly bleak as the pieces (all untitled) caterwaul, moan & crumble."-Soft Abuse

The third and final installment of a trilogy entitled Ceremony, its opening moments rage and wail, with distorted guitars pulling out in front of the drums like hellhounds that have slipped their masters leash. But this isnt a mono-dimensional freak-out. Smith paces himself, pulling back into brooding drones and pensive picking before lashing out once more. As befits a journey thats taken three discs to unfold, it ends with a grand gesture; the final melody is as epic as Roy Montgomerys mid-90s work, and it unfurls over a landscape of blasted wah-wah licks & feedback that somehow reconcile The Stooges and Popul Vuh." - Signal To Noise.

Format: LP
Label: Järtecknet
Country: Sweden
Price: $22.00
"Originally released as a private cassette in 2007 and later re-released the same year on Thorax. After returning to this cassette repeatedly during the years we felt it needed to be presented to a wider audience. Sex at the Maly Trostenets presents two longer pieces of industrial tape loop works with a dry and uneffected analogue song. Never harsh or aggressive but rather focusing on texture and atmosphere. Cold, lo-fi machinery that relentlessly keeps pounding. Always minimal but never boring. The delicate ruggedness of Sex at the Maly Trostenets is simply something you rarely encounter these days. Far away from the contemporary lo-fi genre where lo-fi is not mere a description of recording technique but also embodies an idea of poor musical standards. Recording is retrieved from original tape master making it more detailed and rich in sound than previous releases. Carefully mastered for vinyl. Comes with bigger inlay based on the original cassette artwork." - Järtecknet. Ultra Fuck is Dan Johansson of Sewer Election. Edition of 200 copies.

"Kansas Citys goblin king of neo-Giallo, brood-blooded dark fantasy soundtracking returns with his fourth official full-length, two years after the badass psychodrama of Prophecy of the Black Widow. The time betwixt was well spent, on tours (Europe twice, including the Mogwai-curated All Tomorrows Parties fest), one-off tapes and 12-inches (Welcome to the Chill Zone, Final Exit, etc.), and tweaking the mixes and minutia of the seven undead invasion omens comprising Confrontations. What instantly distinguishes this new album from the previous two is its ominous, slow-burn compositional model, building its evil temple brick by brick, basking in the tension of each new chiming, Carpenter-esque synth line or monkish doom Om for multiple measures before stirring the next substance into the cauldron. This elegant sense of patience gives the tracks a more oozing, operatic aura; these confrontations arent hostile showdowns in the woods but the creeping dread of alien-nation body snatchers infiltrating the populace. Death comes slipping. Can someone hire this genius to score the They Live remake already? X-filed highway cover artwork designed by Dionysian visualist TIM GOODWILLIE." -Not Not Fun.

Freeze! is an inscrutable but impressively legit reinvention of Jan Hammer-style 80s soundtrack cheese: soaring keyboard lines, fast-tappin piano, locked-in bass grooves, goofy canned drums, baroque purple haze soloing, etc. Put An APB On Those Bastards kicks things off with a tension-ramping Corvette cruise into the heat of the night, while Illegal Entry With Intent To Zuul is a pitch-perfect rooftop chase scene that ends with somebody falling fifty stories into a posh private pool (and is apparently also somehow about that horned dog demon that possesses Sigourney Weaver in G-Busters?).

"The one Umberto performance we had the rad fortune to bear witness to involved at least a dozen dudes, dads, and ladies all on stage wearing sunglasses at night and shredding keyboards/keytars bathed in a sea of fog machinery and strobe lights and extraterrestrially-costumed interpretive dancers. Shit was BEYOND. Umberto mastermind Matt Hill allegedly went to legit music school back in the day and used to play bass for Expo 70 (Justin/Expo released the debut Umberto tape/CDR, From The Grave, on his Sonic Meditations label) before splintering into his current electro-satanic Goblin worship guise -- and we for one cant get enough. Prophecy Of The Black Widow is his sophomore LP and though the badass evil Italo goth-synth horror-score blueprint of Grave remains, the main variation is subtle vibe-shift from 70s Argento/Carpenter-isms into more early/mid-80s new wave creep-scapes. Theres still plenty of eerie nightmare keyboard riffs and vintage witch-disco breakouts but the synths squelch with more of a neon retrofuturist bent and theres even one brazenly feel good soaring-into-the-sunset closing credits anthem (the literally-titled Everything Is Going To Be Okay).

In preparation for a string of performances, he holed up and tried to recreate some of these lost compositions, strip-mining his memory for clues and notation. This revisitation process had a particularly transformative effect on the seething lead cut from 2010s Prophecy of the Black Widow, elongating its curvature into even more elegantly paranoid shapes, riding the beat through wider corridors of spider webs and blood-red light. "Temple Room (Extended Version)" functions like a directors cut: expansive, indulgent, and attuned to a deeper strain of the nightmare. Catch Umberto on tour this spring in half the Western world.

"Exact repro" reissue of the 1975 LP, part of the "Background Music" series. The theme is African music and instruments.
"Piero Umiliani was an Italian composer of film scores, most famous for his song "Mah Nࠍah Nࢠof 1968, that was originally used for a Mondo documentary about Sweden (Svezia, Inferno e Paradiso) and became world-famous in 1977 when performed for The Muppet Show. The song was also an anthem of the Benny Hill show. Like many of his Italian colleagues at that time, he composed the scores for many exploitation films in the 1960s and 1970s, covering genres such as spaghetti western, Eurospy, Giallo, and soft sex films. Although not as widely regarded as, for example, Ennio Morricone or Riz Ortolani, he helped form the style of the typical European 60s/70s jazz-influenced film soundtrack that later experienced a revival in films like Kill Bill and Oceans Twelve. Piero Umiliani was born in Florence on July 17 1926. In 1959, charged by great Mario Monicelli to compose the OST of "I Soliti Ignoti" (Big Deal on Madonna Street) OST, he gains international recognition. The score featured Chet Baker on trumpet and it was the first experiment ever of Jazz Music on an Italian comedy movie. In 1961, he writes the music for "Smog" OST were again he featured Chet Baker artistry along with Helen Merrill shaping a masterpiece in Jazz OST history. Il 1970, the Master opened Liuto Edizioni Musicali, his own publishing company and Sound Work Shop recording studio. The first album of this new professional dimension was "Svezia, Inferno e Paradiso" (Sweden, Heaven and Hell") who contained the biggest hit of his career: "Mah Nࠍah Nࢠ(Muppet Show, Benny Hill Show, Red Skelton show). From Liuto catalogue came some of the greatest and richest moments in Italian film Music history. "La Ragazza dalla Pelle di Luna" (The Girl with the Skin of the Moon), "La Legge dei Gangsters" (The Gangsters" Law), Angeli Bianchi … Angeli Neri (White Angels … Black Angels) etc. Liuto catalogue also features incredible background music albums that delivers an amazing variety of sounds: from "To.Day"s Sound" and "News" to "Tra Scienza e Fantascienza" (Between Science and Science Fiction). In those great albums Piero Umiliani combined live Musicians with Electronic instruments. A very exhaustive manifesto of such works can be heard on "Musicaelettronica Vol. 1 & 2" anthology albums. In the past few years, the Timeless and Stainless sound of Piero Umiliani has strongly come back with the inclusion of his music in OSTs of movies like "Playing by Heart" (Sean Connery), "Thick as Thieves" (Alec Baldwin) and ultimately the star packed Hollywood production "Ocean"s 12" with great Crepuscolo Sul Mare track. Major Multinational brands have used his music for television advertising and the CD releases of his music were acclaimed worldwide. In his long career Piero Umiliani composed and recorded 190 soundtracks, 40 library albums and 35 TV title themes." - Discogs.

“2013 release. Un-Kommuniti (sometimes also called Un-Kommunity or Thee Un-Kommuniti) was an early-to-mid-80s project run by Tim Gane with support of Joe Manning, Vince "Van Hire" Adams,Dave "Smut" Smit, and Pete Levy. Tim Gane went on to achieve renown with his band Stereolab and his participation in the band McCarthy in the late 80s. Un-Kommuniti ran their own tape label, Black Dwarf. The group was interested in musical alchemy and the result of this approach in the creation of their music is an incredible mix of psychedelic elements paired with the heaviest power electronics and noise sound-walls, leading the listening to the ultimate psychedelic journey. People familiar with the music of Stereolab will definitely recognize the roots of their musical output in this four-LP box set. They were active from 1983 until 1987 and released on numerous cassette culture labels including Freedom in a Vacuum, Broken Flag, Selbstmord Organización, Cause for Concern, Sound of Pig, and more. Besides their Brutality of Fact 7", released on Cause for Concern in 1984, they just had two other vinyl releases -- contributions to the compilations Freedom in a Vacuum (1987) and Statement (Broken Flag, 1984). This is the ultimate chance to enjoy a musical journey with almost four hours of carefully selected tape tracks by Un-Kommuniti. All the tracks selected for this box were recorded between 1983 and 85 and were previously only released on the groups own Black Dwarf label.

"The songs are constructed from the practice tapes of two bands I was playing in at the time, Gateway Evening Colours (with Alex Farrill on drums and Brian House on bass) and Innnocent Delights (with Miles Huston on drums and vocals and Sam Mehran on keyboard and guitar). In both bands I was playing guitar through a no-input mixer setup. Gateway Evening Colours was working on a kind of deep blues/country-rock noise-wall sound, very minimal and jammy. Innocent Delights was less rock-ish, more free, more psychedelic. The majority of the songs consist of loops cut from GEC and ID practice tapes, cut-and-pasted with a computer wave editor, and also EQd and tweaked on a computer. While the source tapes were collective efforts, the editing process was my own solipsistic endeavor. What I wanted to do was isolate moments of group-improvisational clarity, and cut and paste them into a larger composition. It was this combination of the non-control of group improvisation with the hyper-control of cutting and pasting alone on a wave editor that intrigued me. Instead of developing compositions through the act of improvising, here the improvisations themselves become the compositions..." - ND.

New metal project of Dave Nuss of NNCK (also featuring George Devoe and Arik Moonhawk Roper of Matta Llama) 8-song demo housed in handsome screened jacket. Edition of 100. "UNDER SATANS SUN is a new female-fronted 6-piece metal band out of New York City -- 2 singers who are sisters plus instrumentalists from backgrounds as diverse as NYC itself. The band name is taken from an early 20th century French existential/religious treatise in which an estranged priest meets with the devil Himself in a battle of wits. The outcome: darkness and the void. Thematically, the band actualizes the harsh intersection of the physical and the metaphysical. Religious queries and sexuality intertwine in reverence of the primeval urges of the human flesh, as well as the drive to transcend all such vulgarities in solitary pursuit of the non-corporeal. Musically, the songs are strongly influenced by folk traditions engaging love and the earth, as well as the harsher aspects of urban wasted life characteristic of the band�??s milieu. Each song is based on a strong vocal melody and the mangled interpretation of its dissolution into a sea of unbridled passion. The members of Under Satan�??s Sun seek to connect with their audience on a fundamental level by communicating about those things to which we can all relate: love and loss, sex and its abuse, and the despair and delectation of being alone."

The Underground Sets second album, War in the Night Before is definitely heavier than their 1970 self-titled debut, with great fuzz guitar, organ, Mellotron, and drums. Some riffs in a Black Sabbath style anticipate what would be defined, decades later, as "stoner rock."

"Olympia, Washingtons political post-punk outfit Underpass uses a minimalist approach to craft songs about isolation, displacement and gentrification. Formed in 2013 by Alexander Miranda, the bands creative force behind the quartet, and his cohorts, whose names are withheld due to border issues, N.C. (bass) D.L. (synths) and M.W. (floor tom and snare), create dark heavy punk at its best by incorporating large atmospheric synths, deep, echoing bass lines with Robert Smith-kissed guitar compositions and haunting vocals. Recorded in Vancouver, BC over the course of two sleepless days and nights by Joseph Hirobiashi, then mastered by Mell Dettmer (Earth, Sunn O)))), Assimilation is nothing short of a call to action. On "Stranger" Miranda recalls the cities where he came of age such as Vancouver, Seattle and Olympia that have since come and gone and he no longer recognizes due to the intense wave of development that surged through the region in the early 2000s and still continues today. "Side" reflects more personal experience, recalling a time where a friend was assaulted and stabbed multiple times while on public transit in Southern California. Underlying the record as a whole, Miranda draws on his personal experiences growing up in a politically-charged Native American family where he experienced cultural displacement, personal conflict, and of course, assimilation. "I really admire writers who can create songs that mean something different to everyone," explains Miranda. "With Assimilation I tried to accomplish this by allowing each listener to connect to the record in different ways by internalizing their own experiences and relating to it in their own unique way." 350 gram sleeve with insert and a download coupon." - Desire.

Buzzsaw jammer, will rock. Not too sure about �??Porkys�?� as it points into a Lightning Bolt/Dan Deacon sorta artjock thing, but the same production and killer mixing helps this one out too as it gets going.

"Always a lightning rod of controversy, CHRIS LUTZKOs jihadist approach to punk has been beneficial in getting the word out about his local terror cell, the UNHOLY TWO. But after three years of live shows met with confrontation and polarized minds corrupted by conspiracy propaganda and subversive volume, the pivotal "put up or shut the fuck up" moment has arrived. As the countrys best hype man since Flavor Flav, Lutzko knew that all of his vitriolic soapboxing--not to mention the tweeter-busting feedback from the stage--had to be manifested in $kum of the Earth, the Unholy Twos debut album for Columbus Discount Records. On $kum of the Earth, Lutzko is aided mostly by ADAM SMITH on "power electronics" and BO DAVIS on drums, but he also invited a collection of townie notables, including the production team of TOM SHANNON (CHEATER SLICKS) & WILL FOSTER (GUINEA WORMS, and ANTHONY ALLMAN (EL JESUS DE MAGICO) on synth, to make for what seems like an all-night basement session in Washington Beach gone horribly out of control." -Columbus Discount

"UnicaZürn is Stephen Thrower and David Knight. Ωmegapavilion consists of three improvisations played, recorded, and edited by UnicaZürn specifically for this release across one weekend in March 2015 in Battersea, London. Instrumentation included ARP Solina String Ensemble, EMS Synthi AKS, electric guitar, and two iPads. Heres Joe Banks, writing about the group for The Quietus: "UnicaZürn is an ongoing collaboration between David Knight and Stephen Thrower, two musicians with some serious avant rock credentials -- Knight was a key member of Shock Headed Peters and songwriting partner to the divine Danielle Dax, while Thrower was with Coil for eight years and is also one half of Cyclobe. The music they make together using a variety of vintage keys and reed instruments is a viscerally organic strain of proto-ambient, strongly influenced by the pre-sequencer Tangerine Dream of Zeit and Atem. Were firmly in drone territory here, but a long way away from throwing a few synth loops into GarageBand and hoping for the best." - The Tapeworm.

Title: Transpandorem
Format: LP
Label: Touch
Country: UK
Price: $18.00
"UnicaZürn, David Knight and Stephen Thrower, build their long, ceaselessly evolving musical compositions through a process of improvisation, followed by careful editing and processing. Their music, drawn from subconscious associations while recording, is frequently aquatic or oceanic in overall mood and texture. Knight has spent most of his life living on the banks of the Thames while Thrower resides on the East Sussex coast, and their musical flights of imagination tend toward rolling river dynamics and open seas of synthesized sound. For UnicaZürn, tidal imagery, oceanic forms and the slow rhythms of coastal water are a recurring structural presence, with strong associations of rootlessness, of being far away from home. The inability of human lungs to breathe water endows rivers and seas with a special poetics: a boundary between two different but inter-related states. On the one hand, solidity, clarity, definition; On the other, fluidity, uncertainty, dissolution. The sense of a threshold between opposites gives rise to an elusive otherness, suggesting a portal through which the everyday world can be escaped. Death under the water, the survivors of a lost kingdom clinging to the rocks of an unfamiliar island, a coastal boat ride into deepest abstraction, a deserted beach expressing a world outside reality. A sexual frisson too: a hovering at the brink, poised at the turbulent edge of pleasure, swept away into oblivion. Theres a darkness in the sea, even if illuminated by the most dazzling sunshine. Open horizons shows the clutter of human life to be transient, and as the sea offers a dizzying sense of the eternal. Aquatic sensibility, oceanic timescales: the action of the salt sea beating on the shore. Beaches are cosmic, elemental. UnicaZürns core instrumentation blends analog synthesiser, mellotron and electric piano with electric guitar and clarinet. Both Thrower and Knight draw upon their love and wide experience of electronic music, from the outer shores of Stockhausen to the outer space-ways of Tangerine Dream. In addition, Knight is renowned for his pioneering multi-textured fretwork with Danielle Dax and his ambient guitar settings for Lydia Lunch, while Throwers reed playing provided a distinctive melancholy in Coil and emerged as electro-acoustic texture in Cyclobe. The title "Pale Salt Seam" is drawn from the poem "Night-Song of the Andalusian Sailors" by Federico García Lorca. Parts of "Pale Salt Seam" were recorded live at the Ironmongers Row Baths on March 2nd, 2013. Additional production assistance by Ivan Pavlov." - Touch.

Title: Playing With Light
Format: LP
Label: Fabrica
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Issued a decade ago as a CD on Housepig, Unicorns beautiful and sinister album "Playing With Light" is re-introduced to listeners as a rearranged and remastered LP. Unicorn is WT Nelson, known previously as party to 90s avant-hardcore outfit Man is the Bastard and its spawn, the prolific Bastard Noise. "Playing With Light" features three tracks originally prepared to accompany short films by Stephanie Miller, and, interspersed with standalone compositions, works cohesively to limn a world where the alien oscilloscapes of Bastard Noise merge with earthy synths and electric mandocello. The album opens with a transfixing music box motif that wouldnt be out of place ushering in the opening credits of a vintage thriller. In "Spots," the 10-minute centerpiece track, a mostly unaccompanied synth melody uses syncopation to create the impression of stumbling through darkness. "Clay & Fire" threatens to burst into full-bore power electronics territory but doesnt; the narration we hear is not a transgressive confession but instead a factory workers discovery of pottery as a respite from his labor. From there the record offers an electronic crescendo before resolving in the almost-comforting "Far Away; Close To You," which trails off in Morse code blips clearly transmitted but only possibly received. "Playing With Light" is unique in Nelsons discography and is entirely deserving of this vinyl reincarnation.

Title: Perfect World
Format: LP
Label: Alter
Country: UK
Price: $27.00
"Uniform formed in New York City in late 2013 when old friends Ben Greenberg (Hubble, The Men, Pygmy Shrews) and Michael Berdan (York Factory Complaint, Drunkdriver, Believer/Law) realized they lived on the same street. Their impulsive collaboration quickly yielded the 2014 Our Blood/Of Sound Mind and Body single. The six tracks that make up the equally abrasive but more refined Perfect World have been coming together between tours and work ever since. The music that Greenberg and Berdan conjure up under the Uniform moniker is immediate, aggressive, and even primal in form, but it plumbs untold depths. Berdans venomous voice mines deeply personal themes of resentment, regret, reflection, and addiction over the hum of Greenbergs almost impossibly disciplined guitar, bass synth, and drum machine lines. Greenberg uses the word "templatized" to describe their approach to writing songs for Uniform. "Theres this set bunch of gear to create sounds, and it only creates sound through a certain process, or within its own limitations," Greenberg says. "The goal of songwriting is to see how many different kinds of sounds you can get from the same basic process and machine." On Perfect World, that machine is firing on all cylinders. The guitar is run through a cheap 80s preamp marketed to metal kids. The drum machine is equally no-frills, an Akai XR20 that Greenberg says "most people wouldnt want to keep around." These humble components are combined with noisy synth and Berdans profound howling to form something much greater. Post-punk, synthpunk, and industrial traditions are borrowed from as needed, but the constraints placed on the process mean the result is unique to Uniform. Berdan describes his lyrics as the consequence of feeling "so full of pain, confusion, deep selfishness, and general animosity that you make some horrible mistakes and have to learn how to forgive yourself for them." Perfect World feels like the sum of all that pain and confusion, but it also feels like the catharsis." - Alter.

Mixed by Michael Tanner; mastered by Patrick Klem; sleeve by Lucy Duncombe. Edition of 300; includes download code. The record also comes with a booklet of words by the band members. Here are three extracts:
"Titled after the Black Sands of Sweet Streams of Nancy and pieced together from the relative geographies of melodies found elsewhere on the album, Blacksands represents, to my mind, the band as a whole -- waxing and waning between various members offerings and sewn together with a shared understanding of something more unified and ancient. Recorded in various parts of the English countryside and the Irish midlands."
"Dave brought the Litany to the table, and I was only faintly familiar with it from the Hart/Prior version. F.W. Moormans paean to itinerant labouring hardships, the piece always conjured images of the families left behind in the search for pit work -- A concept which lead to the creation of a kind of coda, The Burning Sea -- with Alison Cottons vocals from Ten Thousand Miles echoed here in an altogether different form... that of a distressed wife abandoned overseas, set against a scree of gradually deconstructed/decaying viola lines."
"Manys the tip Johnny Moynihan offered me regarding the songs I was singing whilst touring with him one Summer. Singing The Recruited Collier exactly as Anne Briggs had done was one of them. However, on this recording, Nature intervened. The tide was fast approaching & in our haste, I sang take my heart rather than break my heart. Not only that, but I sang it twice, perhaps recalling Pavements advice to repeat any mistakes you made so as to make them seem deliberate. With no room for second takes, we made good our escape from the smugglers cave & I swore to never haul a harmonium up & down a cliff face ever again." " - MIE.

Artist: UNITED BIBLE STUDIES & JOZEF VAN WISSEM
Title: Downland
Format: LP
Label: Incunabulum
Country: Netherlands
Price: $25.00
"Dutch lutenist Jozef van Wissem is renowned for his experimental approach to Renaissance and Baroque forms of lute music. By cutting-and-pasting classical pieces, constructing palindromic melodies, or adding electronics and processed field recordings, he manages to seamlessly bridge the musical languages of the 17th and 21st centuries. If this approach seems coldly academic on paper, the results are anything but: his music is uncluttered and direct, with a viscerally hypnotic and emotional impact, and delivered with an ascetic intensity reflected both in his Biblical titles and his No Wave influences. He has collaborated with James Blackshaw, Smegma, Keiji Haino and Jim Jarmusch, amongst others. Mostly based in Ireland, the ever-shifting line-ups of United Bible Studies have spent the last decade roaming far and wide from their folk roots, exploring ecstatic group improvisation, song-craft, and studio-based prog epics. The album title Downland is a play both on van Wissems Lowlands home, and the Renaissance lute composer John Dowland, rumored to have been born in Ireland. The seeds of this collaboration were sown in late 2007, when United Bible Studies were part of the bill for van Wissems first Irish concert. He was particularly taken with Paul Condons bass playing and eventually wrote a piece with this in mind, which became the ecstatic "Come Holy Ghost." Van Wissem began recording tracks for United Bible Studies to overdub and a postal collaboration began in earnest in 2009. The Bible Students were given a free hand, and different band members were drawn to different pieces. Áine ODwyers harp playing goes hand in glove with the lute parts, both players favoring hypnotic figures accruing impact over time. The album is bookended by two different versions of the same composition, "Downland" and "The Seas Have Lifted Up Their Voice." Propulsive and metronomic, with Beach Boys-inspired harmonies, it led UBS to a new way of working. Van Wissems pieces were either stark and minimal, or had multi-layered harmonies which led UBS into less-than-familiar territory. The sparser pieces lent themselves to being shaped into songs, and the addition of extemporaneous textures. Van Wissem wrote the lyrics for "Altars Of Brick (The Day Is Coming)" for Alison ODonnell to sing. Its ominous tone inspired Gavin Prior to write the tangentially-related "Í Rith na h-Óiche" in Gaelic. ODonnell did historical research for her courtly romance "Seven Tears," named after Dowlands famous song cycle. The Bible Students have woven murk and mystery around the lucid austerity of van Wissems compositions, together creating an album which is unlike anything in either of their substantial back catalogs and more than the mere sum of its parts. United Bible Studies are: Paul Condon, Diarmuid MacDiarmada, Alison ODonnell, Áine ODwyer, Ivan Pawle and Gavin Prior." - Incunabulum.

"If you know the man behind United Waters (B.K.A Brian Sullivan) from anything, youll know him as the guitar thudder in Brooklyns densest duo, Mouthus. And if you were really listening to all those ninety million releases they did in the past few years, youd notice that Mr. Sullivan is a deconstructionist of the highest order. Molten riffs that would cream the face off of both Nocturno Culto and Dave Murray combined dismantled themselves to reveal rock as a gas and thin air to be nothing but a petrified turd left over in a backstage buffet platter by Michael Angelo Batio. On his debut release under the United Waters moniker entitled Your First Ever River, Sullivan continues to expose the contradiction of sound for what it is, but theres not so much discombobulated shrailing this time round to drive the point home. Brians vision on Your First Ever River sucks in the sound and vibe of mid-nineties basement dwellers, early seventies robe donning prog rockers and present day turtle necked Germans to continue his pursuit for the never knowing sound. Lets hope your there enough to bask in the revelatory glow of its sound." - Tony Rettman.

Green light was  at the crossroads for stacks and stacks of tapes to be pillaged throughout last  Springtime end and Summer eves until four solid cuts were culled for an LP  release.  And this is the shit - the first side ranges from over the  fucking top heavy driving High Rise wah battle to some serious reps on Olsons  traps accompanying minimal trashed-out skronk chords pushing on the VU meter to  pure slimy menacing blues skuzz that dissipates into a fine, loose rubbery mess  (like every song does, and yeah, these are actual songs) with the sound is so  thick that the grooves are white.  Side Two holds two songs meshed together  with fine stewardship ala GDs Ithaca 77 Scarlet/Fire blowout for a solid  side-long mother of all battalion guitar ventures. Nudging Driver UFO & The  Holy Sound of the American Pipe in the UI unisound tradition in a 16 minute rant  that makes this cut a pinnacle in the annals of low-brow grong for the UI books  - 3 or 4 minutes of semi-coherency, the rest a blaze of solid head-fuckery, a  good one to get lost in.  Our version of hard, loose psych to match head on  all the fancy collector jargon hustled for big bills (only to receive some  waysted bar band hashing out piss bloooz).  Call it pride but it needed to  be solid and realer than real.  The end result coincides to a cruddy mix  tape (levels are screwed considering each song is from a different session) and  acclimates to the shitiest of stereos.  These four cuts are from 94-95,  two live cuts, two prax sessions, Olson kills the drums, Ramirez hashes the  riffs, the wah & mumblings.  And there was another guitar lazily played  by someone from somewhere doing something when she wasnt doing her  homework.  Limited to 300 copies on vinyl - the demon is finally at  rest." - Killertree.

Its the kind of bubbly, dark, sweet porter I bee nectar fermenting into at the end of summer under less honey-friendly conditions. Coincidentally, their brand of stoner rock has the geometric and psychedelic qualities of a honeycomb. These grooves are repetitive and techincial, but never too flashy and by no means boring. A grounded rhythm section is nicely complemented by hydrodynamic guitar lines and extraterrestrial effects. Not exactly what Id deem space rock, but a bit arthropodic to be sure. In fact, this whole record would score an Apoidean documentary quite nicely. With the majority of the footage shot within the hive and featuring a substantial amount of bee carnage of course, this would make the PERFECT soundtrack to a Planet Earth chapter on bee fights.

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

"ZEV has been exploring and breaking ground in the audio and textual fields since the mid 1970s. Although best-known for his metal-based percussive performances, uns, his electronics and vocal-based whirlwind, was one of the most innovative (and individual) audio experiments of the early 1980s. unss combination of sound poetics and voice treatments with dense sonic landscapes resulted in challenging, unique, and rewarding audio. A historical testament to the challenge uns presented appears on the first track of this 2 CD set, when some of the audience members -- in addition to repeatedly shouting Die! as the set concluded -- shout out for Flipper.

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

"Cassette-only release. Edition of 250 copies. Two readings of the short story Johnny Remember Me by its author Cathi Unsworth and by Pete Woodhead (O Yuki Conjugate/The Sons Of Silence). Cathi Unsworth is a writer and editor who lives and works in London. She is the author of three pop-cultural crime novels, Bad Penny Blues, The Singer and The Not Knowing, and the editor of the short story collection London Noir, all published by Serpents Tail. Cathi has written on music, film, art, fashion and culture for Sounds, Bizarre, BFI Flipside, Mojo and Uncut, amongst many others. Her collaborator on this release is Pete Woodhead, an electronic composer who cut his musical teeth as part of O Yuki Conjugate and The Sons Of Silence and is now best known for his soundtrack contribution to the hit British zombie movie Shaun Of The Dead. "He stood at the back of the room, in a smartly cut pale blue suit, so cleanly shaven his skin still had a rosy glow from the razors kiss, thick brown hair set into a shiny pompadour that looked as though it had been set in plastic. His bulbous dark blue eyes darted around the cellar, and he pulled on a cigarette fretfully. For a second it seemed that he was too nervous to come across the floor, but then his eyes became still as they settled on what he was searching for. With a sudden sense of purpose, he walked towards Johnny. And that was when all the trouble started." - The Tapeworm.

"Its common to name the MC5 and the Stooges among the forefathers of what they call punk rock, but it was their associates in a third band, the Up, who could more accurately be identified as the real precursors of punk. In fact, if you trace the punk rock lineage back to the Ramones -- and many do -- the connection is even clearer, because the Ramones were really little more than a watered-down, cheapened clone of the once-mighty Up of Detroit and Ann Arbor. This determined quartet of killer skinnies from the Murder City were not as skilled in music and stagecraft as their stablemates in the MC5, nor as charismatic as their colleague Jim Osterberg (Iggy Pop) and his band The Stooges, but they dedicated every fiber of their being to playing high-energy rock n roll that was designed to inspire their audiences to leave the square world behind and come and join the revolution. This complete Up recordings/deluxe packaging includes a DVD of unseen footage plus a set of facsimile gig flyers/booklet that includes extensive liner notes by American Michigan Rock specialist Ken Shimamoto, with involvement from original bassist Gary Rasmussen.

"52-minute DVD (all region, all format) of Up-Tight playing at their best. Incredible sound quality, the video is close-up and personal. Unless you have been lucky enough to catch this tremendous live band on tour, this is the only way you are going to experience the real thing! Black-clad and with an ominous aura created by their distorted guitar epics, burnt-out ballads and raucous mantric jams, Up-Tight are seriously not to be messed with. Heading up the second generation of Japanese psychedelic rock acts (following on from Fushitsusha, Kosokuya and Shizuka) theyre one of the best live groups in Japan. As you might expect from their name, theres a chiselled intensity to their playing which displays some startling post-Velvets stances. With the power to lay down spontaneously loose, acid-fried and drugged garage psych jams of hypnotic guitar squall, and a line of impassioned and fathomless vocals that are capable of kicking you right in the gut, Up-Tight have a mesmeric feel to them, unmatched by any peers." 2-sided DVD that is both NTSC & PAL compatible."-Last Visible Dog

"Up-Tight are a three-piece psych group based in Hamamatsu, Japan with a history dating back to 1992 has released around 10 records. Up-Tights current line-up (2016) is original members T. Aoki (vocal & guitar) T. Ogata (bass) and T. Shirahata (drums). The ghosts of The Velvet Underground, Les Rallizes Dénudés and Amon Düül loom large over their personal feedback song-destruction universe. This LP is the first re-issue of their original CD-R-only release in Japan in 1999 in a very limited edition of 100 copies. It has been remastered in Berlin from original recordings and presented here in an edition of 300. Here is what David Keenan (Wire magazine) thought about this first CD-R released in 1999 : "Up-Tight are a noxious young trio from south Tokyo, all acolytes of the legendary Japanese psych group Les Rallizes Dénudés, who augment their sound with crushing, Sabbath-styled dynamics, earsplitting acid leads and beautiful Velvets-inspired ballads... Song structures are mostly kept loose, allowing for lots of noisy improvisation. Generally the album is anchored by heavy riffs. Just when you thought youd got to grips with Tokyos paradigm destroying psych scene, this one hits like a sucker punch." All songs are five to ten minutes long, varying from very melodic ballads to psychedelic journeys. The album ends with an epic track, "無題", which is an 18 minutes tour-de-force, that takes you to another dimension as if the Velvet Undergrounds "Sister Ray" would have a child with Acid Mothers Temple, while listening to Amon Düül under codeine. Up-Tight are from the generation that emerged with the madness of the Tokyo 90s and the P.S.F Records scene. Close to Acid Mothers Temple (the two bands recorded an album together), Up-Tight has a unique sound and is one of the most important underground reference in the Japan psychedelic scene." - Desastre.

"It is a rare feeling when music can give you the sensation like a bullet through the head, and you call it a pleasure. Well, that is what happened when we first listened to these four tracks from The Begininng of the End the new studio album from Japanese garage-psych heroes Up-Tight. We played the disc once and we were speechless. Why? The reason was easy: We got a picture of a band at its creative zenith. The Lp opens with Our Own Portrait, guided by mantric drum beating, rigid bass pulsations and T.Aoki providing a vortex of massive fuzzed guitar. A Song For Your Pain is a beautifully inspired ballad, with a melancholic voice floating on a carpet of melodic soft psychedelia. Side B is the Beginning Of The End, for real! The Destruction is a trippy improvisation, with amps on fire and instruments in a state of pure sonic catharsis. Introducing the title-track as the final chapter, with Aokis raucous crooning that evokes smoke and dark shadows, then collapsing into a wall of guitar squall. Our ears are still blowing! And its time to play this record again. Get ready for a long trip cause there is no turning back with this incredible new album, Up-Tight takes the tradition of Japanese psych-rock and brings it to a brand new level of crazy intensity and destructive power.

"Alto saxophone, harmonica, chains, metal, accordion, bells, toy flute -- Masayoshi Urabe. Metal junk, cello, etc. -- Kiyoharu Kuwayama (track 2 only). A new solo album by Masayoshi Urabe is always a cause for rejoicing. This is his first since the frankly frightening Ware Wai Seidei No Kyojyo Zo on PSF in 2003. Urabe rarely plays live now, but this live album catches him in action in a converted saki brewery on the shores of Lake Biwa, near Kyoto. The damp heat of midsummer in this part of Japan seems to have worked its magic on Urabe, and this is an altogether gentler performance than normal. Over one long solo track, he bends his breath and body to the air in his saxophone, his tones blending with the sound of the insects outside the venue. A shorter second track captures him in a rare outing on accordion, toy flute and harmonica together with Kiyoharu Kuwayama. Another radical, effortlessly convincing album from the master of contemporary rock n roll breathing." -PSF

"A beat-up light fixture hangs from a weathered ceiling, as the glint of a red light bulb spills along the length of its electric cord. Masayoshi Urabe stands underneath, in a half-penumbra of light. His saxophone is fit into his folded body, as he releases riffs of heavy rock. The atmosphere is thick with cigarette smoke and wisps of smoke that fly off from the movements of his body, heated by two bare light-bulbs nearby. Through moments of intermittent illusion, you can see the bright flash of a drum set deep in the stage, or sense the murmur of sidemen who would stir up such a smoky aura. A theatre of apparitions, of pure hallucinations provoked by ritual, the music reverberated with its double: Masayoshi Urabe has transformed the tiny stage of the Cave 12 in Geneva into a new-york-like heavy metal stadium, his solitary presence swings into action on stage like a horde of savages - a rock-n-roll animal. The audience must have prepared for the show by an endless loop of listening to a vulgarian best of Lou Reed record. This will be the most rock-like of his three shows in April 2001, for which the audience has prepared its ears as delicately as it prepped its hair, in a pre-concert ritual taking hours before the show. In each concert of his series, Urabe invoked the invisible at the foot of the walls where he found himself, and fought against the traces of ghosts who still yet haunt the club spaces - the artist Yayoi Kusama in the room of the Contemporary Regional Art Fund in Dijon, the legendary sets people described - or that we told him about while speeding along the highway between shows, militants of speed or direct action like Yoko Ono, Albert Ayler, Sam Peckinpah. Each night spelled an encounter with a different phantom. Another night, the mythic echo of a concert by Haino Keiji infused the grand wooden room of the Totem de MaxŽville. Masayoshi deployed returning, seductive riffs and their feedback, and attacks with the sword-like edge of his saxophones bell; drawing out an immense space to the point of stamping of a floorboard, he imposed a tentative victory over this incarnated marching band, before the static silence of the last transformation of a ghost rider. I cant believe what I no longer know thats the ghost I want to hold CIRCLE X "Puerto Rican Ghost (After Mars)" 1992 ... evenings to catch the phantom and its echo." - Yves Botz.

On Urklang - his latest solo disc, which presents two live performances, one on alto, the other on soprano - he painstakingly carves these silences into huge, ominous icebergs. The overall effect is such that even the slightest cry from his horn seems impossibly portentous, especially when he roars through the extremes of the altos upper register." - David Keenan.

"After years of pleading Siwa finally convinced Chie Mukai and Masayoshi Urabe to offer up this much needed document of their ongoing collaborative work. The original recordings were culled from live performances between1990-2001 and were then edited by Urabe. Chie Mukai should be known to many for her work within the more structured confines of her band Che-Shizu but she also has an impressive history in improvised music that goes back to her time as a student with Takehisa Kosugi in the mid 70s. The Che-Shizu albums and her two previous solo releases (a CD on PSF and the out of print LP on Siwa) have introduced a select few to the meditative drone of the er-hu (a traditional two string violin) but here she can also be heard on vocals, piano, toys and various percussion instruments. Likewise Urabe, known mostly for slowly wrenching unfathomable screams from his alto saxophone expands his instrument choices to employ a soprano saxophone, some percussion, harmonicas, chains and a particularly vicious electric guitar. This is passionate, physical and highly individual improvised music with an intensely human soul. A companion video released on the Japanese "There" label is also available and does more to explain the physical nature of these performances than any audio document could. But you have to buy the LP first. This is a vinyl only edition of 400 copies and comes in a silkscreened sleeve." -Siwa.

"Alto saxophone, bells - Masayoshi Urabe; percussion - Toshiaki Ishizuka. Thrilling, blood-shaking, soul-scraping and defiantly non-sexless improv set from two Japanese titans. Recorded live at the Apia club in Tokyo in December last year, this set showcases Urabes uniquely physical approach to improvisation -- ferociously concentrated, contorted, sweating and eruptive with physical power. His lines seem to boil up from his flesh, with gurgles, gasps and rasping breath defining sparse, sonic regions in which silence itself seems to breath. Ishizuka is the perfect foil, providing subtle shade and balance around Urabes transformative sculpting of space. One track, 58 minutes. Comes with a booklet of evocative black and white photographs of the event by Tatsuo Suzuki. The title translates as The Backbone of Summer." - FE.

"Some of you out there might be aware of those crazy Christians who make up the truly disorienting SoCal based band, Dry Rot. Their debut LP from last year, Philistine, was one of the most bizarre and disturbing full lengths to come out in a coons age, referencing everything from This Heat to the Minutemen to Void within a scant album side. Drew and Jordan from the band have a new “project” called Uranium Orchard, and the four song demo tape they just did up might rival their other band in sheer fuckedness alone. Theres pretty much no reference to Hardcore in the sound, but just like they do in Dry Rot, they glop together a bunch of sound references unconsciously that shouldnt stick together, but somehow do. A lot of it sounds like the takes on Captain Beefheart that came out of the UK in the late 70s (such as the fore mentioned This Heat), but then theres all these weird electronic surges going on in the background and spacey parts that sound like “Angel Rat” era Voivod.

“Urban Sax was created in 1973. Gilbert Artman, the mastermind behind Lard Free -who has also participated in dozens of recordings by other artists of the French experimental scene that included Delired Chameleon Family, Clear Light, Komintern, etc.- developed an interest in the relation between space and sound. He organised a first experiment that took place in the town of Menton, in the South of France. Artman strategically placed 18 saxophonists, and their sound reverberated through all the village. As time went by the band increased and currently their performances count with up to 34 saxophonists, 1 bass player, 3 percussionists, 2 dancers and 8 vocalists, with a line up that varies depending on each particular project. You can find saxophonists playing over rooftops, or climbing down buildings or arriving in helicopters. It is a fascinating experience that can be hardly translated to vinyl, but through the years they have recorded some of their music and here we are proud to offer vinyl reissues of those works, including one previously released on vinyl format!
Urban Saxs music is constructed over the concept of ""continuous sound", around which build and develop poly-rhythmic loops, modulated and nested in a partition and a principle of "distant sound" allowing to question the listening audience. It is about linking audio and visual performances. The music is semi repetitive, with evolving pieces of different colors. Entire saxophone family is represented: sopranos, altos, tenors and bass baritones..." (Wikipedia).
"This is some amazing shit right hyah, folks. Imagine something like, say, a concert band playing outtakes from Magmas "Theusz Hamtaahk" trilogy. Youd possibly arrive at this." (...) "Everything starts with this massive (and I mean it...were basically talking about something the size of an orchestra here) wash of sound, like something dropped wholesale out of the trippier parts of Ligetis material in the "2001" soundtrack. Then we get swept into the primal repetition of a simple motif...very Magma-like, save for the obvious difference in forces. As the proceedings go on, it gets more complex; another wash, and then into another primal minimalist cycling with strange, otherworldly drones and choral voices in the background, chuffing percussion...and then a drift off into Ligeti-land again, with chanting vocals following, and huge gusts of wind from the sax players breathing thru their horns as some sort of Saturnian Sun Ra lullabye starts to course through the group. And thats just the first half. This is some potent stuff. Its very much ritual music, as one would expect with it being composed for Urban Saxs ritualistic performances. And its quite trippy, especially for something largely acoustic (although there are four presumably electric guitars in the forces) with little electronic tinkerage to enhance the strangeness." (...) "There are some other recordings in Urban Saxs catalog, but this is perhaps the most amazing, most trippy of them all." Extracts from a review by Lugia from Julian Copes Head Heritage website

Urban Saxs debut LP was issued in 1977 on Cézanne / Cobra. It is the soundtrack of Urban Sax first architectural sound shows, but also a splendid work on its own, with a similar sense of musical experimentation and adventure to that of La Monte Young, Phil Niblock, Glenn Branca, Steve Reich, Terry Riley, a.o.

16 saxophone players gathered to record the 1st Urban Sax LP, after several years of touring festivals and outdoor venues. They were perhaps reluctant to actually record their music events, hence reducing the spatial effects of musicians playing around and above the audience. I assume Gilbert Artman had to make compromizes to re-create the Urban Sax magic in studio, using studio trickeries and sound effects. For example, the extremely low rumbles on track #1 sound like slowed down, processed saxophone recordings. The music is not only live performance, then, but partly composed in the studio. Vocals starting 14:00 on side one add the pseudo-primitive, typical Urban Sax mood. The music gets uncompromizingly repetitive on side two, where a 5 notes loop on soprano saxophone (starting 3:45) is played endlessly to mesmerizing effects, on a background of sustained low notes by the 8 tenor players. The effect is hypnotic, and these enchanting sounds could go on for ever. This is where Urban Sax gets closer to LaMonte Young, and have been compared to Rhys Chatham or Glen Branca on saxophones.

It is about linking audio and visual performances. The music is semi repetitive, with evolving pieces of different colors. Entire saxophone family is represented: sopranos, altos, tenors and bass baritones..." (Wikipedia).
1978s Urban Sax 2, also on Cézanne / Cobra, is the continuation of their debut work. Actually it features parts 2 and 3 of the pieces contained on 1, again similarities with works by La Monte Young, Phil Niblock, Glenn Branca, Steve Reich, Terry Riley, a.o. are present, and its the perfect companion to 1 as it is, basically, part two of that first album.
The Wah Wah reissue reproduces the original sleeve artwork, comes in remastered sound and lacquer cut by Lex Van Coeverdeen @ The Vinyl Room for improved performance and features a booklet with photos and liner notes written by Gilbert Artman himself.” - Wah Wah.

"2008 repress! "Now in their 25th year, what better time to reissue this collection of songs that inspired a generation of punk, art-punk, post-punk, and pop-punk bands, from the Minutemen and Gun Club to Yo La Tengo and Butthole Surfers, in addition to newer bands such as The Dishes, The Reds, and ST-37. A 31-song collection featuring such Urinals classics as Im a Bug, Black Hole, and Ack Ack Ack Ack, in addition to a selection of madcap covers such as the Jetsons Theme, and songs by Soft Machine and Roky Erickson. Recordings were made between 1978 and 1980, during the heyday of American punk. Includes the complete Urinals, Another EP, and Sex/Go Away Girl 7" material, 3 tunes from long out-of-print compilations, several unreleased studio and rehearsal pieces, and samples from the bands archive of live tapes, including their very first performance as a three-piece." - Warning Label

"Originally released in 1979 on the bands own Happy Squid Records, THE URINALS second 7-inch picks up where their first left off. Bookended by the slow-building pressure of "Black Hole" (covered by The Gun Club and Grass Widow, among others) and rapid-fire surge of "Ack Ack Ack Ack" (famously covered by the Minutemen), Another EP shows what happens when dynamic songwriting meets condensed attitude. Essential recordings that are best appreciated in small doses, repeated over and over and over. Limited edition color vinyl." -Superior Viaduct.

Format: Double LP
Label: In The Red
Country: USA
Price: $21.00
"In The Red is proud to announce this double-vinyl release of THE URINALS Negative Capability, originally released by Amphetamine Reptile on CD in 1996. Before changing their name to the less restricting 100 FLOWERS and becoming one of the most respected underground post-punk-pop acts in the US, Los Angeless seminal trio released eleven songs during their 1977-1980 tenure-ten on their three 7-inch singles and one more on a 7-inch compilation, all on their own Happy Squid label (they were about the only Los Angeles band to do that back then). This retrospective triples their output to 31 songs! Want to hear Americas Wire, only twice as primitive (if thats possible), with one quarter the sound quality? Even when they are covering the Soft Machines "Why Are We Sleeping?" they sound like a three-step primer on minimalism, in scratchy, fast, burping, nutso punk with clipped vocals. You can see why the Minutemen covered "Ack Ack Ack Ack," but its the real solid, melodic stuff-such as the Last-inspired harmonies of the great A-sides "Black Hole" and "Sex," and "Scholastic Aptitude," and the instrumental "Surfing With the Shah" (which foreshadows the coming of 100 Flowers and later offshoot TROTSKY ICEPICK)-that makes so many Angelinos remember this goofy but great trio so fondly. Negative Capability has an unrelenting, authoritative intelligence and sense of humor." -Jack Rabid. Includes digital download card.

"Dead Flowers," "Hologram" and "Last Days of Man on Earth" are not simply classic songs, they are venerable punk haiku-raw and unrestrained. Limited edition color vinyl." -Superior Viaduct.

"Sex" and "Go Away Girl" (penned by David Nolte of The Last) are propulsive, lo-fi statements that lay waste to the A-side in under three minutes-classic Urinals form.

Title: Anthology
Format: LP
Label: Feeding Tube
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"An overview of the vector, thus far anyway, of this bracing post-core duo/trio/whatever who were once based in western Mass., and are now scattered between Mass., L.A. and Montreal. The hub of the band is vocalist, Jackieboy, and guitarist, Dick Riddick. According to Jackie, the initial idea was to do “a knuckle-dragging hardcore Chrome kinda mash up with drum machine. My concept as vocalist was to front the band as a Jewish New Yorker stand-up comedian whose found himself fronting a punk band and is trying to roll with the punches. Originally I wanted the live performances to be half stand-up and half music but dropped this and just put occasional zingers in between songs.” Initially, they were based in a farmhouse in Hadley, MA and decided to use a drum-box, both because it was a Chrome-like thing to do, and also since they couldnt find a drummer who shared their twisted vision. This album includes portions of their debut show, at Florence MAs 13th Floor, in December 2014. Still a duo, they then recorded the eight tracks that comprise the Get In Line With Mental Decline EP in February 2015 at Dead Air Studios. The demo version of Confront Ya/Dickies was recorded in March 2016. The live NY show from January 2016 was recorded at Betaville, and features special guest drummer Denny McDermott. The last bit is from Greenfields John Doe Jr., recorded in March 2016. And theres no way a mere recording can convey the very special brand of chaos these menches conjure up. But if close your eyes and crank this up, youll get close enough for jazz." - Byron Coley, 2016. Edition of 413.

Artist: URPF LANZE
Title: Procession of Talking Mirrors
Format: LP
Label: Audiomer
Country: Belgium
Price: $26.00
"The person behind Urpf Lanze is Belgian visual artist Wouter Vanhaelemeesch, who is mainly known for his large-scale ink drawings that offer a hermetic blend of weirdo characters, medieval iconography and surrealist decors. His artwork started gaining some attention a few years ago when renowned avant-garde lutenist Jozef Van Wissem started using Vanhaelemeeschs work to decorate many sleeves of his recorded output, including his collaborations with filmmaker Jim Jarmusch, noise legends Smegma, free-folk band United Bible Studies and fingerpicker James Blackshaw. Next to doing exhibitions in places like Tokyo, New York and Paris, his drawings appear regularly in zines and underground publications all over the world. He also runs the audioMER label together with designer Jeroen Wille and has provided artwork for records by Jack Rose, Robbie Basho, Mauro Antonio Pawlowski, Cian Nugent, Graveyards, Second Family Band and many others. Urpf Lanze is the moniker of his rather unorthodox solo guitar project, under which he has been playing for several years now. With an acoustic guitar that lays flat on his lap, tuned to unwieldy scales, he brutalizes the instrument in an oddly musical way. As if this wasnt enough, he lays down some vocal work that goes from ventriloquist-like whines and mumbles to deep and guttural grunts. The result is a rather unhinged and demented music. Imagine the rawness of Bill Orcutt, the more frightening sides of Loren Mazzacane Connors and the absurd stylings of Wilburn Burchette all wrapped into a Lovecraftian sonic nightmare. Procession of Talking Mirrors is his first full-length solo album. Recorded live on a 4-track tape recorder, these six tracks offer a mixture of Japanese folk music, free psych, scratchy Delta-blues recordings, damaged lo-fi and aggressively percussive fingerpicking. While some tracks may carry a more melancholy tone, others seem closer to acoustic death metal than any kind of folk music. However you may describe it, it is most definitely not a record for the faint of heart." -Audiomer.

"Three-LP box version in purple-and-gold hot-foil-stamped box with eight-page insert and poster. A treasure trove of previously unreleased West Coast guitar psychedelia, 1966-1975. "Uther Pendragon was more than just a band, it was a family. Closer than brothers, they lived together, made music together, worked, played, laughed, cried and dreamed together." --Mike Stax (Ugly Things)
This is the incredible story of Uther Pendragon, a lost psychedelic band from San Francisco whose music has remained buried until now. Formed in the Bay Area in 1966 as a teen garage group called Blue Fever, Uther Pendragon lasted from 1966 until 1978. During that time, the band went through different names and phases, as their music evolved from garage to psychedelia to hard rock, but the core of the band always remained the same: Mark Lightcap (rhythm guitar, vocals), Bruce Marelich (lead guitar, vocals), and Martin Espinosa (bass, vocals). After finding their ultimate drummer in Mike Beers, the group finally settled on the Uther Pendragon name in the early 70s. But despite being active for all that time and recording at numerous studios (including their own in Palo Alto), Uther Pendragon never released any recordings. Their complex and fascinating story, which involves winning a Bay Area Battle of the Bands and playing with Country Joe & The Fish, recording a killer garage-psych 7" acetate in 1967, going to the legendary Pacific Recording Studios in 1969 to record a demo, living as a family in the same house for many years and rehearsing seven days a week, building their own recording studio and music corporation, being managed by Craig Pedersen (Something Wild, Tripsichord Music Box), being involved in an occult-themed rock opera called Sabbat, and much more, is told with all the details by Mike Stax from Ugly Things in this sets extensive liner notes, with rare photos. Produced from the bands vast archive of original master tapes, San Francisco Earthquake includes their unknown-until-now 7" acetate from 1967 (fab garage-psych in the vein of The Human Expression or The Music Machine); tracks from 1966-69 including a groundbreaking, moody psycher from 1966; a demo tape from 1969 recorded at Pacific Recording -- an incredible document for any lover of early SF garage-psych (think Oxford Circle, The Savage Resurrection, Moby Grape . . .) -- and many tracks recorded at their home studio in Palo Alto. 100% unadulterated West Coast guitar psych and hard rock that recalls QMS and even Kurihara-era White Heaven." - Guerssen.

"Alitaju Ylimina" is the first vinyl album by Finlands Uton released in a strictly limited edition of 500 copies in a marvellous fold-out sleeve with a full-colour drawing by Uton himself on the outer sleeve and some fierce black&white illustrations by dutch artist Christelle Gualdi inside. Uton is the one-man project of Jani Hirvonen originally hailing from Tampere and currently travelling and recording in India. Hirvonen is one of the most active musicians of the Finnish underground scene that has recently presented us the likes of Kuupuu, Kemialliset Ystävät, Islaja, Paavoharju and Lau Nau and a seemingly never-ending stream of beautiful and highly original record releases. The music of Uton is no exception there, drawing inspirations from psychedelia to free jazz to pure ecstatic drones and noises using a wide range of acoustic instruments from various parts of the globe and a bulk of electronics. Recorded in glorious lo-fi the mystery of Hirvonens sound is difficult to pinpoint; sheer ravishing beauty, elegancy and variegation is stashed behind a wall of grey, inscrutable haze - gorgeous melodies and voices, reeds and alien sounds gleaming through the mist from time to time, shimmering like diamonds through layers of dust. Uton has previously released dozens of CDs, CD-Rs and Cassettes on a myriad of labels including Jewelled Antler, Pseudo Arcana, Last Visible Dog, Digitalis and his own Ikuisuus. He has collaborated with Amon Dude (Avarus), Anla Courtis (Reynols), Antony Milton (Black Boned Angel), Ben Reynolds, Peter Wright, Phil Todd (Ashtray Navigations) and Jan Anderzen (Tomutonttu, Kemialliset Ystävät) among others.

Echoes in the Wonderland is the first full-length LP by Finlands JANI HIRVONEN since 2009s Unexplained Objects (Dekorder) and is no less weird than his previous excursions from the outer regions of the cosmos to the minds innerspace. As the album title could say, this is a way to the "wonderland" (also called the "other side"-many names been used during the history of humankind), which shouldnt be mixed for the adventures of famous Alice-even it might give some idea about what is going to happen, but thats just a start of it all-the start of nothing else but listeners mind. What are the "echoes" then? They are something which are coming from beyond to here where we stay-this album being a link between these worlds; inside & outside; like they are working together. Psychedelic transmissions of consciousness. Bizarro alien communication thats difficult to pinpoint, Utons "sheer ravishing beauty, elegancy and variegation is stashed behind a wall of grey, inscrutable haze-gorgeous melodies and voices, reeds and alien sounds gleaming through the mist from time to time, shimmering like diamonds through layers of dust."

Format: LP
Label: Dekorder
Country: Germany
Price: $22.00
""Straight Edge XXS" is the 2nd vinyl album by Finlands Uton released in a strictly limited edition of 500 copies on the Dekorder label. It comes in a gorgeous full-colour collage sleeve assembled by Hirvonen himself. While Utons last Dekorder album "Alitaju Ylimina" (and most of his other recorded works respectively) are hazy lo-fi drone masterpieces for the most part, this is a completely diffferent affair. Recorded straight to tape within one month, right after returning from a 6-month trip to India, these songs (if you could call them songs) are completely out-of-this-world; very short and crazed sketch-like pieces sounding like a Nonesuch Explorer LP of long lost field recordings from an as yet unexplored continent. Or is it World Music from an unknown planet recorded by those Sublime Frequencies guys from mysterious short wave transmissions? Well, it is all that and more. It is pure ecstatic expression channelized through Psychedelia, Free Jazz, Noise and rural ancient Folk Music from all over the world in a completely naked, predominantly acoustic setting. One of the purest forms of music you could imagine; while all the familiar Uton elements remain evident in a hazy backcloth. Uton is the one-man project of Jani Hirvonen originally hailing from Tampere. Hirvonen is one of the most active musicians of the Finnish underground scene that has recently presented us the likes of Kuupuu, Kemialliset Ystävät, Islaja, Paavoharju and Lau Nau and a seemingly never-ending stream of beautiful and highly original record releases.

While the last albums explored rural soundworlds from the outer reaches of this planet and hidden places of the inner human (and animal) mind, he has finally left planet earth completely and is now reaching out for outer space and alien communication. Hirvonen seems to have traveled the spaceways, bringing home folk music and field recordings from faraway planets and alien cultures. Erich von Däniken beware!

Title: Were Only In It For The Spirit
Format: CD
Label: Digitalis
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"For the past five plus years, Uton has been one of the most consistent projects to come out of the snowy confines of his native Finland. His output has been constant, but the quality is always great. His drones have always been underscored with a sense of melody and a keen utilization of the space where the music was created. These songs are not icy or glacial, though, like one might think. Uton has an uncanny ability to inject an inviting sense of warmth and spirit. Were Only In It For The Spirit is ghost music; barely there and out-of-sight in the blink of an eye. The man responsible for these masked-spirit journeys is Tampere native, Jani Hirvonen. Hes collaborated with the likes of Jan Anderzén (Kemialliset Ystävät, etc), Bridget Hayden (Vibracathedral Orchestra), & Anla Courtis (Reynols), among others. When it comes to enchanted, sprawling drones, Hirvonent is a true Rennaissance man. He is joined by Vapaas J.P. Koho on all tracks, who complements Hirvonens delicacy with subtle hints of chaos. Were Only In It For The Spirit continues to trek through new worlds of sound, polishing off the once-rough edges of Utons sound into something that acts as a beacon in the void. Dark, brooding drones for guitar and electronics flicker and fade like a distant, stellar horizon. Hirvonen is a master craftsman, and Koho is his perfect foil. The two play off each others every move and produce an end result that rivals anything Uton has released previously. Were Only In It For The Spirit is a magical piece of work." -Digitalis

"A new great album from the Tampere, Finland psych-noise favourites. Quite a bit more intense and claustophobic than many of his previous albums. Perhaps somebodys put something funny in the drinking water... Uton has released many albums the last 2-3 years on Pseudo Arcana, Jewelled Antler and his own imprint Haamumaa. Edition of 100 copies." - Gold Sounds.

"Perhaps this collaboration was destined to happen, and were overjoyed that it is happening here! Tampere, Finlands Uton (Jani Hirvonen) and Taranto, Italys Valerio Cosi (who is ? of Pulga) are two of the most creative and most prolific musicians working in experimental music at the moment, and on Käärmeenkääntopiiri, Uton and Valerio have mastered a sound that combines elements of psychedelia, free jazz, Krautrock, environmental sounds, drones and more for an ecstatic listening experience. A mélange of electronic and acoustic instrumentation join together as naturally as the coming of the tides. By turns meditative and forceful, introspective and extroverted, all the while commanding undivided attention from the listener. This is experimentation that remains inviting even in its darker passages. 2007 has been a banner year for both of these musicians, and this release finds them in top form, creating a work that shows exactly why they are in such high demand. Käärmeenkääntopiiri will leave you hoping this is the beginning of many more collaborations between these two." -Fire Museum.

“Archaic Sounds, Natural Music & Joy”
“This album is about a way to simply make raw, basic, natural and joyful music. This album is also about and with the Swedish saxophone visionary Bengt Nordström, ”Frippe” who first of all talked to me about making and playing natural music. The legend of Bengt Nordström (1936-2000) tells how he picked up the clarinet and the saxophone after being deeply touched by the music of Tony Scott and Sonny Rollins.
Then meeting Ornette Coleman and Albert Ayler changed his musical vision; so much that he no longer fit into the contemporary jazz scene in Sweden. Frippe spoke of a totally spontaneous, improvised, creative music at a time when everyone else was trying to master
bebop. Because of this, he was left to play alone for many years. He became ”the outsider”; that nobody wanted, or had the nerve to play with. During intermissions at clubs, like the ”Golden
Circle”, he took the opportunity to play small solo concerts and recorded himself. He released small editions of his work on his own ”Bird Notes” label. Although the recordings were mostly solo sax, on rare occasions, he was joined by Don Cherry on trumpet, bassist
Sven Hessle or bassist Björn Alke who would show up to play duets with him. His collection had two releases: Albert Aylers; ”Something Different!!!!!!” (BNLP 1) and Bengt Nordströms
own; ”Natural Music” (BNLP 2). The other recordings were not numbered or catalouged but were released as LPs and EPs. It was not until the mid 70s that Bengt Frippe Nordström formed his own band, the ”Miljövårdsverket”. After some years of trying different constellations, the musicians, bassist Björn Alke (1938-2000), violin player Lars Svanteson (b. 1949) and myself, drummer Peeter Uuskyla (b. 1951), became established as a ”working unit” and cut the albums ”Nows The Frippe Time” (Dragon Records DRLP 82), ”The Environmental Control Office” (Ayler Records aylCD-021/022), ”Frippes Protocol” (aylDL-086) and ”Creative
Addition” (aylDL-116). This album is also about me talking to my children Nema (b. 1993) and Simon Cecil (b. 1990) to continue making natural music with your own voice, body and whatever music instruments you use. This album is recreated, created and recorded 2015, 7″ vinyl side A recorded 1967 and side B recorded 1987. Hope you like it!” - Peeter Uuskyla.

"UV PØP were an early 80s post-punk group from the South Yorkshire region of England. Their sound was regionally bleak and they used staccato, angular guitars lines, with vocals ranged from spoken repeated mantras to whispered and shouted political poetics. The Rough Trade charts for one week in 1982 tell a very interesting story. Alongside acts of the caliber of Sisters of Mercy, Robert Wyatt, Sex Gang Children and Virgin Prunes are UV PØP, their place well-earned." -Sacred Bones.

"Fourth single from Melbourne, Australias UV RACE and just the like the other three, this one is fantastic. The A-side sees the band pushing forward into somewhat newer territories with "Acid Trip" their hazy/dreamy take on psychedelic pop, albeit with the typical UV Race retardo-punk bent. The flip "Speed Freak" is a more direct two minute burst of UV Race greatness. Expertly recorded by MIKEY YOUNG (Eddy Current Suppression Ring) with perhaps their best sleeve art yet. New LP, Homo, coming soon on In the Red." - Sweet Rot.

Title: Homo
Format: LP
Label: In the Red
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"2007 saw the first recording from Melbourne, Australias The UV RACE-a self-released tape featuring four songs of primitive thud, minimal assemblage and high-energy expression. Over the next three years the band has continued to show dedication to these themes with a string of cassettes and singles and their 2009 self-titled debut full-length, and their sophomore album Homo delivers on the promise of these early releases. Working again with EDDY CURRENT SUPPRESSION RING guitarist MIKEY YOUNG at the recording and mixing stages, The UV Race developed the songs over several sessions. Their willingness to explore is clear, from the psychotic bedroom confessional of "Girl in My Head" with its confident teen-heat swagger, to the seven-minute closer "Homo," where nods to the Ramones enclose a psychedelic freak-out reminiscent of the closing minutes of The Stooges Funhouse. In between, the band explores influences ranging from their Australian proto-punk and garage fascinations to American country, Krautrock and UK post-punk, citing the Velvet Underground and the Saints as influences. Includes members of TOTAL CONTROL and STRAIGHTJACKET NATION. Includes digital download coupon." -In The Red

"In the beginning, the U.V. Race were the product of two rural Australians imagination. Throughout high school, Al & Marcus had the band but no sound. A few years go by and Al moves to Melbourne and joins Straight Jacket Nation with Daniel -- they play speedy hardcore. Marcus moves to Melbourne and with his pal Al, Daniel, Moses and Emily, U.V. Race made some noise. After some playing around, they released a great single on Aarght! Records and a split tape with pals Eddy Current Suppression Ring. Enter S.S. Records and this new record, Malaria, the U.V. Races second record. Four songs long, the UVs take their influences (X, Cramps, Electric Eels, VU, etc.) and get loose. While the songs are songs, nothing is too planned out as the band thrives on spontaneity. Captured on tape by Eddy Current guitarist Mikey Young, Malaria is yet another great record to come out of todays Melbourne DIY scene." -S-S

Title: Racism
Format: LP
Label: In The Red
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"God is saying this to you: Racism is the third album by Australias most genius avant-tards THE UV RACE, dragging melodious pop songs through a devolved, malodorous glam-punk aesthetic. It continues the stylistic jump from their self-titled debut to sophomore full-length Homo, further exploring the possibilities of the first wave of punk, incorporating orchestral arrangements and gutter-glitter psych stomp, like if Vom tried to write their own Forever Changes; like if the Electric Eels backed up Bolan or if The Fall put out a record on Crass Records. There are tuneful lamentations of heartbreak and loss alongside very debased, toilet-humor punk licks; Lovecraftian psych-cult morbidity at one moment and rousing anti-anthems against self denial the next. It has been an especially productive year for the band-they are about to launch their first feature-length film, Autonomy and Deliberation, and the soundtrack LP recorded for the film comes alongside Racism, a split 7-inch with Native Cats (on Ride the Snake), a split live LP with Eddy Current Suppression Ring (on Almost Ready, originally released on a limited run of cassettes back in 2008), and the Gypsy King single (from Racism, on HoZac). All this, plus the output of the numerous other Melbourne bands in which members of UV Race play-Asps, Dick Diver, East Link, Guy & Marcus Blackman Experimentation, Lower Plenty, School of Radiant Living, Soma Coma, Straightjacket Nation and Total Control-reveal a relentless commitment for the sake of the song. LP includes digital download coupon." -In The Red.

"Crude proto-punk reminiscent of the glory days of VOM, Modern Lovers, Zakary Thaks, Electric Eels, Crime, and a whole host of historic losers. Aaarrggght! Records are very proud indeed to present you with this killer slice of idiot savant punk rock. "The full-length debut masterpiece from Melbourne avant-tard six piece. Following two limited-edition (and now highly sought after) seven inch singles released here and in the USA, the UV Race have fulfi lled the potential only hinted at on those EPs. Produced by Mikey Young of Eddy Current Suppression Ring. "Bringing to mind some of the cornerstones of mid 70s proto-punk (Modern Lovers, Gizmos, Electric Eels and the like), the UV Race likewise avoid rote punk trappings with their really quite sophisticated use of piano and saxophone, and the over-riding presence of singer Marcus introverted musings on life as a small town misfit. His sincerity and unconventionality is what makes the UV Race compelling listening." -Aarght

"The six pieces, now released by Monolisa Records, are part of a private tape released in 1992 by Razoul Uzlu (aka Raymond Dijkstra). The music on this album, created through automic writing, is a kind of imaginary animation music with a nice blend of collage and harmony, from sober sweetness to neurotic alienation. Multitracked synthesizer with voices and noises are the basic ingredients of these adventurous mono recordings. The cover of the record, also made by Razoul Uzlu, is a collage of selected prints of old engravings and texts. This is the first Monolisa release in an edition of 500 copies with stamped and numbered innersleeve." - Monolisa.
