Title: Luchando por el Metal
Format: LP
Label: Beat Generation
Country: Spain
Price: $20.00
"It was 1979, during the Argentine dictatorship, when Ricardo Iorio and Ricardo Moreno decided to start a heavy rock band called Comunion Humana. Two months later some tracks were arranged and Gerardo Osemberg joined ´em as drummer. Inspired by fast engines and the intensity of their playing, the band took V8 as their moniker. During 1980-1982 they played lots of shows that were filled with dramatic incidents: disturbances, arrests, detentions, and event deaths. For these reasons the image of the band was totally conditioned and people started to hate them. In 1982 they recorded their legendary demo-tape and started to receive more attention from others countries. They played lots of gigs, some totally sold out and others empty because crowds hated their rock image and attitude. In 1983 they recorded their debut album Luchando por el Metal ("Fighting for the Metal") with their classic line-up: Ricardo Iorio on bass, Osvaldo Civile on guitar, Alberto Zarmarbide on vocals, and Gustavo Rowek on drums. Before disbanding in 1987 they recorded more albums and their status grew, making them a reference and inspiration for many metal heads all around the world. V8 were chased, ill-treated, and despised for their social lyrics and also for the incidents that occurred at every show. As we mentioned before, there was a tragedy at one show in Estadio Platense, where fighting with the police resulted in deaths. Beat Generation is more than proud to release this record officially for the first time, a total cult piece of South American metal: a record perfect for the times we are living in now. 180 gram vinyl, limited to 500 copies. Comes in original cover with lyrics insert." -Beat Generation.

Title: Un Paso Más en la Batalla
Format: LP
Label: Beat Generation
Country: Spain
Price: $22.00
"180-gram vinyl; limited to 500 copies. Between August and September of 1984, the Argentine band V8 entered the studio to record their much-anticipated follow-up to their mighty debut, Luchando por el Metal, the first metal album released in Argentina. This second album was the consecration for the band; their fans were already thousands but they got more and more recognition with this new LP. The bands reputation grew, partly by virtue of their lyrics, which reflected the dictatorship of the time and the pain and frustration of the whole society, and partly due to their commitment to play everywhere they could. The new songs were still fast and direct, and a little better played than the previous albums, so this album helped them to gain a cult status in their country and the rest of the metal world. This is the first vinyl reissue of this seminal album of South American metal. Replica cover art and insert." - Beat Generation.

Title: Antico Adagio
Format: LP
Label: Die Schachtel
Country: Italy
Price: $27.00
2016 repress. "A reissue of the LP as it was originally issued in 1978. Vaccina had intended for this album to be a double LP, and recorded enough material for one, but it was then trimmed down. The recordings that were cut from the original release are presented on the “Frammenti…” LP released alongside this one.

"One of two LP versions. Includes the first six tracks from Lino "Capra" Vaccinas Antico Adagio (DS 027CD), originally released in 1978. Antico Adagio is an amazing work that anticipated countless others in the field of so-called "new age" and world music, yet remains at the crossroad between those genres and experimental and electronic music. Apart from a few violin parts and the extraordinary vocal lines (sung by Vaccina himself and Juri Camisasca), Antico Adagio is an album fully built on percussion. At the same time, its the farthest thing from the typical idea of percussion. You wont find a single trace of African or primitive beats: instead, this is a collection of rather long, subtle and thoughtful compositions, crafted with vibraphones, marimbas and gong. Together they create a work which will remain unique -- both in Lino Vaccinas discography as well as in a more general sense." - Die Schactel.

Format: CD
Label: Die Schachtel
Country: Italy
Price: $21.00
"Before an aberrant idea of progress and workaholic ethic ludicrously sped up our daily lives, even in the hectic city of Milan it was possible to "play slowly" -- with little or no pressure, simply following the path your art was showing you. After a classic artistic beginning and an experimental stint with Aktuala and other brilliant fellow musicians (Franco Battiato, above all), Lino "Capra" Vaccina, near the end of the 70s, recorded Antico Adagio, an amazing work that anticipated countless others in the field of so-called "new age" and world music, yet remains at the crossroad between those genres and experimental and electronic music. Apart from a few violin parts and the extraordinary vocal lines (sung by Vaccina himself and Juri Camisasca), Antico Adagio is an album fully built on percussion.

You wont find a single trace of African or primitive beats: instead, this is a collection of rather long, subtle and thoughtful compositions, crafted with vibraphones, marimbas and gong. Together they create a work which will remain unique -- both in Lino Vaccinas discography as well as in a more general sense. The edition is comprised of two individual and separate LPs: Antico Adagio (DS 027CD/027-1LP) and Frammenti da Antico Adagio (DS 27CD/027-2LP), which features previously-unreleased material from the original 1978 sessions. The deluxe CD edition (Antico Adagio, DS 27CD) contains both albums." - Die Schachtel.

From Kieran Hebden/Four Tets liner notes: "There are records I have found in my life that I was almost wishing existed before hearing them. Recordings with new combinations of sound and atmosphere I knew could be wonderful to me if I ever discovered them, and then on discovery the sound was even better than I could have imagined. I felt this way when first hearing music by Alice Coltrane (Journey to Satchidananda) and Don Cherry (Organic Music Society) and I also felt it with Antico Adagio. The combinations of the rhythms and melodies resonate with me in a very clear way and I feel transported by this music every time I hear it. I first heard this record when it was posted on the Mutant Sounds blog a few years ago and am very happy to see it get another release. The music is timeless and brilliant and maybe there are other people out there wishing for a sound like this too, who will now have chance to find it." - Die Schachtel.

Title: s/t
Format: 7"
Label: Siltbreeze
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"Although they only got a couple of spins around the earths axis, Vacuum were the band who wrote the clay tablets from which all great Christchurch groups worth a plug would glean substance to formulate THAT sound. Originating in 1977 & consisting of members Bill Direen, Stephen Cogle, Peter Stapleton, Peter Fryer & Alan Meek, Vacuum perfected an aural symmetry that fused classic Nuggets, Roxy, Elevators & Velvets moves as a template & this unique plonk would become germane for all that sailed after. Deep collectors will recognize these tracks by name from various prior releases, but these particular recordings-culled from 78/79 rehearsal tapes-are being made available here for the 1st time, EVER. Kicks would go on to become an early staple in Direens Builders discography, but the guitar on this version is particularly & wonderfully unhinged. The beautiful serenity of Cogles Shade - masterfully driven by Meeks keyboard--is as crisp out of the gate as the later honed version familiar in the oeuvre of the Victor Dimisich Band. The real thunderclap of the bunch is Accident (another take can be found on The Builders Beatin Hearts lp) where it sounds like someone spiked the Tia Maria with peyote & as a result, the band has psychically disemboweled Heard Her Call My Name & fed the guts to Amon Duul. Ive said it for years, electric liqueurs dont lie! One time edition of 300. File alongside; Six Impossible Things, Pin Group, Builders, Victor Dimisich Band, Above Ground, Scorched Earth Policy, Dadamah & Terminals." - Siltbreeze.

While the bands lifespan was short, its members would go on to soon after form Bilders, Pin Group, Victor Dimisich Band, Scorched Earth Policy & Terminals.

Artist: VAINICA DOBLE
Title: Heliotropo
Format: LP
Label: Vinilissimo
Country: Spain
Price: $26.00
"Heliotropo (Ariola, 1973), the second LP by Vainica Doble, strikes me as the discovery of the world in little more than half an hour -- a treatise on the human condition, from childhood until death, based on the small things. Themes on this album include disappointment and the necessary courage to face mistakes, the road that lies between perception and memory and that vital path that appears once we have cleared out the fallen leaves that were hiding it. Its the recalled memories that will make up our life, as life is just firm present and feeble past. Carmen Santonja and Gloria van Aerssen speak to us, sometimes as the worried mother, other times as the warm lover that whispers secrets in our ear and, finally, as the slightly older friend, wiser and more experienced, who tries to show us lifes twists and turns. They possessed an intellectual and vital knowledge light years away from their contemporaries, an unusual curiosity and talent, and their musical references were as wide as scarce were their prejudices. Often considered two kind and sensitive angels, they were indeed that and much more too: malevolent, sweet, sarcastic, intelligent. From each of their tracks flowed a power and talent that showed us a thousand ideas. Social commentary, folk and fuzz hand-in-hand, treatises of luminous psychedelia born out of a childrens tale, the scent of the southern seas, and more. They carried Spanish copla and traditional songs in their hearts and the old (even then) musical movies of the 40s in their memories -- all of it strung together by a decadent melancholy that provokes an almost unhealthy attraction. What in others were anomalies poured from Vainica Doble as something natural, fluent, truthful. Nothing in them seemed forced: rock, copla, folk, French chanson, nursery rhymes, etc. And standing behind it all is the great Pepe Nieto: arranger, producer, and artisan who was able to reproduce and support their natural, iconoclastic personalities. Their songs were and still are buoys of memory. Familiar places in which to find shelter. Every time we visit them something wonderful happens." --Ximo Bonet. Vainica Doble were one of the most unique artists in Spanish music. On Heliotropo, they brought together rock, folk, Spanish copla, French chanson and lullabies to create music completely their own. Deluxe gatefold 180 gram reissue with original artwork and liner notes." - Vinilissimo.

Title: Taquicardia
Format: Double LP
Label: Vinilisssimo
Country: Spain
Price: $29.00
"180 gram vinyl reissue of one of Vainica Dobles strongest and most experimental albums. Folk, jazz, pop and traditional Spanish music create a beautifully haunting and captivating LP. "In 1984, the Spanish Movida movement was in full bloom and the people taking part in it professed the same devotion to Vainica Doble that British punk displayed towards teen idols such as Marc Bolan. But it would be hard to find a record from those years more impervious to the Movida than Taquicardia, the authors of which seemingly didnt know about such admiration or didnt care about it. Eternal dilettantes, it wasnt strange that the career of Gloria van Aerssen (born in 1932 in Dos Hermanas, Seville) and Carmen Santonja (San Sebastian, 1934) moved forward, most of the time, due to the encouragement of a fan. But this jump without safety net, as Mario Pacheco described it, only could have happened on a label as pathologically respectful towards its artists as Pachecos Nuevos Medios imprint, and at a vital point such as the one the duo were going through during the middle of the decade. It was his enthusiasm which took them out of their silence to record their sixth album and the end of a cycle, as their later recordings would finally be an epilogue of what culminated here magnificently. Elegant, classic, austere and, nevertheless, sounding at times like genuine avant-garde, Taquicardia is the reflection of a critical stage in the life of its authors. Disillusioned by the poor repercussion of their two previous albums for Guimbarda, the outstanding El Eslabón Perdido (1980) and El Tigre De Guadarrama (1981), Gloria and Carmen had found themselves at the peak of mature age and empty-handed. The duo delivers here their most personal, introspective and bitter work, which surprisingly becomes, as if by magic, a superb collection of calls to chaos, libertarian fables and exultant love songs. Passion becomes idolatry, gallant coplas (Spanish popular songs) are touched by grace, pieces of marital bitterness, all of which culminates in an anthem of incredible beauty such as Sígueme, clean, stripped, overwhelming. Gloria declared being so ashamed of the tracks almost pastoral tone that she refused being credited for it. Of course, its her voice which will make the song remain forever. Stripped of the glitz they had displayed in the preceding years, its harder to find here the source of popular and academic music which could usually be heard in their music. But that clarity allows us, more than ever, to enjoy the boldness of many of their song structures and, of course, their vocal harmonies. These two pieces of vinyl contain their most refined work." --César Sánchez aka Fulgencio Pimentel; Liner notes in English and Spanish by César Sánchez." -Vinilissimo.

Title: Vainica Doble
Format: CD
Label: Wah Wah
Country: Spain
Price: $19.00
"Probably the rarest and most sought after LP in the Spanish collectors market, the first album by Gloria Van Aerssen & Carmen Santonja is at last reissued on CD as it deserves. On the twelve songs they wrote for their debut album, originally released on ÿpalo in 1971, Vainica Doble blended folk, soft rock, pop and a dose of psychedelia to describe a magical world of their own with splendid Spanish lyrics and great arrangements that bring you echoes of the Beatles, the British Psychedelic Trip or The Incredible String Band, without ever loosing their incredibly personal character that sounds so unique to todays ears as it did to those of 1971. Its fantastic, colourful pop cover was designed by Ivan Zulueta, artist and film director (he was the mastermind behind the cult movies 1, 2, 3... Al escondite inglés! and Arrebato), and is reproduced here in all its glory, housed in a laminated slipcase featuring praise texts by some of their biggest fans such as Andy Votel (Finderskeepers/B-Music), Luis Calvo (Elefant Records), Ibon Errazkin, Ferran Llauradó (Rockdelux) and Ramon Vendrell (El Periódico de Catalunya). Features a lavish full colour 20 page booklet reproducing photos and press clippings from the era, along with extensive liner notes by ÿngel Maeztu (written in Spanish) and printed lyrics. You wont get this through rapidshare! The twelve songs of the original 1971 LP are here augmented with 8 bonus tracks, six of them taken from non-LP Vainica Doble singles (including both sides of their mega rare first 45 from 1970 La Bruja/Un Metro Cuadrado) plus two songs from the obscure single by Tickets, their backing band at the time, who recorded Vainicas penned El Rigor De Las Desdichas, with Someone Like Me, a killer psychedelic fuzz-pop stomper, as its flipside. All their ÿpalo recordings collected in one fantastic edition made, as always, with love and devotion by the Wah Wah team." - Wah Wah

Title: Mannerlaatta
Format: Triple LP
Label: Ideal Recordings
Country: Sweden
Price: $29.00
"Mannerlaatta ("Tectonic Plate") is Mika Vainios soundtrack for a "74 minute Lettrist film made entirely without a camera" by Finnish film maker Mika Taanila; his third following their previous collaborations: 2002s A Physical Ring and 2015s Return Of The Atom (the soundtrack was released by Blast First Petite in 2016 as Atomin Paluu - PTYT 086CD/LP, 2016). The music was written very early on in the films two-and-a-half year development, and subsequently held a strong sway over the rhythm of the films editing and visual narration - which takes place as a series of black and white images made from photocopying various travel documents, which were later photographed onto 35mm reversal film in a darkroom, and overlaid with text by poet Harry Salmenniemi. As Vainio tends to use a set-up of a homebuilt kit, unchanged from his very earliest productions, each new release is effectively a subtle alteration/refinement of his brutalist but tactile process of creation. And, going by that timeline of events, wed speculate that Mannerlaatta was conceived somewhere in the wake of his staggering Kilo (PTYT 076CD/LP, 2013) and the much sweeter Konstellaatio side as Ø, which is roughly where its aesthetics also lie. The 50 minute score breaks down to six sections, each exploring the full frequency spectrum of his patented, greyscale tonal palette, largely swerving a fixed rhythmic meter to occupy a weightless, out-of-reach mid-ground that seduces us headlong into his chasmic designs and best suits the black and white film imagery. Key to the recordings appeal - as with most Vainio gear - is that peripheral sense of spatial dynamic and his unpredictable manipulation of amplitude; whether dangling the listener over abyssal sub-bass dimensions, needling with icy prongs, or occasionally alleviating the tension with teasing pads which evaporate back into the æther as though they were never there, ultimately leaving the listener at rapt and at his mercy for the duration. Mastered by Denis Blackham; Cover design by Nullvoid." - Ideal Recordings.

"Mika Vainio, currently based in Berlin, is one-half of the groundbreaking minimal electronic duo Pan Sonic. Before starting Pan Sonic in the beginning of the 90s, Mika Vainio has played electronics and drums as part of the early Finnish industrial and noise scene. His solo works, under his own name and under aliases like Ø, are known for their analog warmth and electronic harshness. Producing either abstract drone works or minimal avant techno, Vainio always creates unique, physical sounds." -Comfortzone.

Artist: VAINIO/KEVIN DRUMM/AXEL DORNER/LUCIO CAPECE, MIKA
Title: Venexia
Format: LP
Label: Pan
Country: UK
Price: $27.00
"Pan presents a collaborative album from Mika Vainio (electronics), Kevin Drumm (electronics), Axel Dörner (trumpet, computer) and Lucio Capece (soprano saxophone, bass clarinet, shruti box). Vainio, Drumm, Dörner and Capece have strong points in common, that have been executed in different contexts. The musical map is generally divided into categories that are determined by its most evident and often banal elements; if it has beats or not, if it is quiet or loud, if it has raw material or a carefully worked aesthetic. These four musicians have been working using all the previous elements, but these elements did not determine the music, they were used at the service of deeper ideas related to time and perception. How the sound of our environment can become music, how can music be attractive without telling a story, the work of sound in its extreme: noise, granular and delicate, digital, electronic, instrumental extended techniques, preparations. The musicians involved in this project have worked with each other in various formations: Kevin Drumm and Axel Dörner started working together in the late 90s as part of a trio with Paul Lovens; as a duo they released an influential album on Erstwhile Records. Mika Vainio and Lucio Capece released Trahnie, an album they worked on for three years. Capece and Dörner worked on several projects together, including a residence with Keith Rowe working on Treatise by Cornelius Cardew. Capece and Vainio have been part of the Vladislav Delay Quartet. Capece has played and toured with Kevin Drumm in a trio with Radu Malfatti... finally, theyve all come together on Venexia, recorded in Venice and mixed by Capece with minimal edits. The LP was mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates and Mastering, pressed on 140 gram vinyl and comes in a poly-lined inner sleeve. It is packaged in a pro-press color jacket which itself is housed in a silkscreened PVC sleeve with photos by Traianos Pakioufakis and artwork by Kathryn Politis and Bill Kouligas." -Pan.

Price: $19.00
2016 repress. "Brazil in the early 1970s had one of the vibrant music scenes in the world. Tropicalia was going strong, a challenge to both the music establishment and the state. Música Popular Brasileira (or MPB) was firmly established. Up in the northeastern corner of Brazil, centered in Recife, was another exciting strain of Brazilian culture called Udigrudi. Lula Cortes, Ze Ramalho and Satwa were a few artists from the movement; but none is more celebrated than Alceu Valença. Valença grew up with the expectation of being a lawyer. He did go to law school, but he ditched the legal life for his first passion: music. In 1970, he played with Ave Sangria. Soon after he made a couple records with his friend, the artist and musician Geraldo Azevedo. However, his first solo album Molhado De Suor is what truly caused people to take notice. While other Udigrudi musicians melded traditional northeastern Brazilian music and rhythms with folk rock and psychedelia, it was Molhado De Suor that set the mark high. Aided by Lola Cortes and Geraldo Azevedo, Valenças rich vocals combine with driving guitar work, moody arrangements and unusual trips. Molhado De Suor is a record Slipcue calls innovative, insistent and vital. It is considered a Brazilian classic, often landing in Brazilian Best of All Time lists and sought after by collectors. Molhado De Suor was originally released in 1974 on the Som Livre label and has never been reissued. Sol Re Sol is proud to bring this important album back in print." - Sol Re Sol.

“Dino Valenti was one of the most fascinating figures of San Franciscos psychedelic scene of the 60s. He was the frontman of the Quicksilver Messenger Service, and became famous with his hippie anthem Get Together that reached the USA top-ten in the version of the Youngbloods. He made a solo album with Columbia, and recorded a lot of other material that hes been storing in various warehouses in the late 60s. This record comes from some of these tapes, which were recently found and delivered to Valentis family. They are of superb sound quality, and of even greater musical value - excellent never before issued gems, as well as his own version of Get Together presented for the first time here on vinyl. It is unknown, who else is performing on these tapes, although both the sound and the great acid guitar parts in several tracks strongly remind of early QMS albums. Great totally unreleased tracks from 1965-1970 by the Quicksilver Messenger Service frontman. Fully authorized.

Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"It can take a lot for a single album to stand out from a discography as epic as MVs, but by the time youre given this one a single spin it becomes very clear that a new apex has been reached. This long in the works solo outing somehow merges nearly every one of the finest elements of past releases into a perfectly executed singular vision. Theres an intensely personal, exposed element to the song writing here, increasingly hinted at in the recent past but never so purely focused. Likewise the music itself has a honed edge thats both unharnessed yet precise, drifting just enough, but never too far. A newborn musical trajectory wrapped in MVs most loving & elaborate “spectrasound” production to date, creating a sonic pallet that simply ripples with nuance, tone, and a seemingly bottomless depth of detail. All together, a start-to-finish trip thats instantly memorable & hummable, subtly intimate yet cosmically blasted. Restrained yet fully rocking, with that unmistakable burnt, ragged edge. Blazing grace indeed-- distinctly a solo vibe, but without any shortage of help on board. Guests include : Erika Elder, P.G. Six, MICK Flower, Spanish Wolfman, Jeremy Earl, J. Mascis, Meg Baird, Pete Nolan, Muskox, Carson Arnold, and Rongoose, all adding to the decidedly rich, earthy, and futuristic sound. Endless guitars of every texture, lush mellotron, vibrating harmonies, star-dust synth, hazed rhythms, eastern drones, and far more, all fluidly entwined -- packaged in a beautiful full color laminated 60s style heavy tip-on cover, with large insert. Edition of 500 copies." - Time-Lag.

Title: Space Chanteys
Format: LP
Label: Fringes
Country: Italy
Price: $22.00
"Matt Valentine creates, has created, and will continue to create from inside of a continuum that unspools from a source that is also so distant as to be invisible. Mysterious Translucence is not just the name of his shoe. Space Chanteys is really the first honest solo album that Matt Valentine has created. There have been others that are somewhat like it, or are related to it, in shape, or in style, but they are not it. This alone is it. It is Space Chanteys. Recorded live, back in October 100, the ensemble here has run through all of Matts pockets on many occasions. Some were/are part of the Tower Recordings collective. Others are associated with the MVEE Medicine Show. Each of them has fingered keys and touched lint that has deep and private resonance in the Valentinian flow. They take a deep collective breath here and release it slowly, like a sigh trapped in the highest tower of Greasers Palace. And its a gasser. Those enlightened people who are aware of his recordings, have a tendency to think of Matts music as part of the American volk tradition. And, indeed, a portion of it does reside there. But as with so many of the interesting inventions inside out-culture currency, the soul of this volk music emerged from synchretic collisions between psychedelic rock and avant garde jazz and country blues and trance-drone-minimalism as well as a primitive form of volk-proper. The material on Space Chanteys is beautiful in its fracture. Its fissures phosphoresce in the darkness w/ an unearthly radiance: glow-in-the-dark teeth set into the gums of eternity.." -Byron Coley. Also includes PG Six, Dean Roberts, Samara Lubelski (Hall Of Fame), Erika Elder and Tim Barnes. Edition of 650 copies on 220 gram vinyl.

Title: What I Became
Format: LP
Label: Woodsist
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"If string theory is correct, this is approximately the thirteenth album MATT VALENTINE has released that definitely shouldnt be filed under a group name (TOWER RECORDINGS, BUMMER ROAD, GOLDEN ROAD, etc.). On the other hand, if string theory is correct, this might also be his 11,000th album. The truth, one suspects, is somewhere in between. Since bedding down in southern Vermont at the dawn of the century, MV has been as cussedly prolific as anyone. The gout of LPs, cassettes, CDRs, singles and 10-inches emerging from Maximum Arousal Farm has dwarfed the output of everyone cept maybe Sunburned or Thurston. Regardless, there can never be enough MV LPs in the world, and What I Became is a beaut. Most of it is as solo as Satan, apart from percussionist JEREMY EARL (of WOODS fame), whose presence is sometimes felt more than heard. ERIKA "EE" ELDER and MIKE "MUSKOX" SMITH also pop up on a track, but the general approach here is as naked-and-loaded as the soul of Icepick Slim. As usual, MVs tunes and procedures beggar easy generification. Elements of deep forest psychedelia brush against Crazy Horse guitar / vocal flourishes that explode to reveal volk-based form mayhem at its hickiest."-Byron Coley Limited to 500 copies with full-color jackets and inserts.

Title: Nonparallel (In Four Movements)
Format: LP
Label: Experimedia
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Nonparallel (In Four Movements), is composed and arranged entirely from samples from the recordings of avant-garde Western classical composers and computer music released by the Nonesuch label in the 60s and 70s. In working with the material, Valles wanted to enter into its very lineage, to forge a dialogue with it, to both extrapolate something essential from it and contribute to its legacy by using it to create an original work some three decades later. Divided into four movements, it is a nuanced album of subtle complexities that took roughly three years to complete. The process started with recording small sections, randomly selected from pieces written and performed by the likes of Elliot Carter, William Bolcom, Charles Ives, Charles Wuorinen, Stefan Wolpe, et al. The source material was then carefully cut up, rearranged, stretched & heavily manipulated. In addition, the decision to sample directly from the original vinyl editions was important in order to capture the crackles and noises generated from the records themselves. In using them to create a backdrop for the new pieces, the intent is for the old sounds to mix with those generated from the newly pressed work to create another aspect to the overall soundscape. A striking departure from Damians previous recorded output, Nonparallel is equal parts anthropology and alchemy, at once documenting the prescience, relevance and richness of his chosen source material and creating something bracingly new from it." -Experimedia.

"In todays scene of hippy dippy two bit mystic miasmas and self-appointed avatars hung up high on hollow Shangri-La noose-notion-poses, one who plays psychedelic music is hesitant when choosing adjectives. Utter the term freak folk and Vallley Of Ashes might cut yr face. Approach with candor and they might peel back their own skulls and open their minds to you plain and simple -- straight from the gut. Cavehill Hunters Attrition is a sprawling triple LP collection that channels a huge spectrum yet maintains a distinct overall sound of their own that is not at all trying hard to be unique yet at the same time is not looking backward to the past. The sound is timeless -- is it 1972 or 2003?  A marriage of refinement and roughness, killer chops and outer abandon, structure and spontaneity, private and public, introversion and extroversion, sobriety and derangement, abject orchestras and backwoods dirges, tuning up and tuning in, microtones and dead moon anthems, love and hate; delicate hazy acoustic smoke rings, primitivist-exorcist metal, esp/actual singed free drifts of strings-wood-skin, junkyard gamelan, sunday morning chamber pot clouds and a gritty analog warmth lazy river town opium den dwellers both vital yet polluted -- with catfish the size of barges lurking down in the mud below the surface. Points of reference range from the kommunial flow of Siloah, the delicate fog song-smithery of Stone Angel and the heaviness of primitive Amon Duul 2 and Trad Gras. Yet the sound is distinctly American -- Midwestern - Kentucky chrome held together with duct tape. This beautifully packaged box set culminates with a side long liveboot dream-frisbee of a Danny Whitten-era Crazy Horse-smoking some Algerian-bluegrass w/ the Velvet Underground riding that full moon mood elevator. Valley of Ashes contains members of endless Kentucky sound miners including Sapat (forthcoming LP on Siltbreeze), Virgin Eye Blood Brothers, Raw Thug, Kark and the Magick Markers." - BVF.

"Formed in 2002 in Western Massachusetts, Vampire Belt is Bill Nace (Body / Head, x.o.4, Ceylon Mange) on guitar and electronics and Chris Corsano (Rangda, Joe McPhee, Evan Parker) on drums and electronics. Early on, they selfreleased a couple of ultra-limited CDRs of lo-fi blow-outs, something like a mangled car wreck at the intersection of hardcore and free jazz. Tours followed and then, in the early/mid 00s, Nace and Corsano partially phased out of Vampire Belt duomode in favor of collaborations with people like Jessica Rylan, Paul Flaherty, Steve Baczkowski, Okkyung Lee, Greg Kelley, Mats Gustafsson, Thurston Moore, Dredd Foole and Bill Orcutt. But in 2014 they made good on a nine year-old promise to Ben Six Organs of Admittance Chasny to record a Vampire Belt album for his label. Unfit Structures, Vampire Belts first LP, comes via Chasnys Hermit Hut label and its not such a far cry from their obliterating early CDRs: high-energy improvised outbursts with spontaneously structured forms imploding just as soon as they begin to solidify." - Hermit Hut.

"This 2005 recording collaboration of Vampire Belt, the long running Western Massachusetts duo of Chris Corsano (frequent YOD associate and collaborator with Jandek, John Olson, and Paul Flaherty) and Bill Nace (X.0.4.). Vampire Belt specializes in all over the kit percussion on deeply audio effected guitar histrionics. Cant is Jessica Rylans long standing vocal/electronic project. Her sound is self described as friendly, intimate and creepy like anonymous postcards sent to you by a rain soaked prisoner. And I am in no mood to argue... its got moments of beautiful song and scary blurt. The collaboration sound, you ask? Very much the collision of these two entities: the soundz of Rylans homemade electronics butting up against Naces splayed guitar, all the while punctuated by the free jizz drum rambo of Corsano. The record has several burners, and plenty of moments of parking lot moan and search. Really, a record like this has not come out since ESP-Disk released that last awful Godz record. FACT!" - Load.

Neros Neptune has bestowed the last copies of this ultra-limited, swankly-packaged, tour-only LP upon Forced Exposure to coincide with Vampire Hands Spring 2009 23-date tour with Wavves. Minneapolis Vampire Hands are a rather difficult-to-pigeonhole lot, one with so many disparately abundant ideas bubbling out of their collective skulls that they barely keep pace with them. Citing influences as diverse as Exuma, Can, Neil Young and Simply Saucer, Vampire Hands sound might (lazily) be described as Marc Bolan meets Mayo Thompson in Neil Haggertys cannabistro. Fuzzy, distorted guitars meet tribal, pulsating rhythms. An eerily affecting falsetto melds with a lower, drier voice to create delightfully off-kilter harmonies. Get this NOW before this band assuredly ascends the hype-ladder." - Neros Neptune.

Title: VPRO RadioNome December 18 1981
Format: LP
Label: Enfant Terrible
Country: Netherlands
Price: $25.00
"Luc Van Acker is all except an obscure musician. Already from his solo records in the early 80s he has been building a name for himself as a multi talented musician and performer. While his early works are rather experimental he later joined forces with other musicians (who have become famous with bands like Front 242 and Ministry) to create a more rock orientated industrial / electronic act called Revolting Cocks. The session on this record is from 1981 and thus a very early piece of music in the discography of Luc Van Acker. For this occasion he performed with live electronics, a violin and various other gadgets and tools. The music must be seen as somewhere in between old style industrial music (thus experimental) and modern classical music. This live performance takes the listener from rhythmic pieces into more soundscape like baths of sound and was done as part of the legendary RadioNome radioshow broadcasted by the VPRO in the early 80s. The session has been tranfered from the original tape and is edited and re-mastered to make it available for a new audience. The liner notes have been written by Luc Van Acker himself." -- Enfant Terrible. Limited to 520 copies.

Title: Temporary Change of Scale of Museum Le Secet (Nr. 49)
Format: 7"
Label: Cosmic Volume
Country: The Netherlands
Price: $12.00
2012 release. "...deals with the Museum Le Secret, which I believe is a portable museum, a scale model of a museum, which can be presented in another gallery space. Van den Dobbelsteen, also a visual artist, exhibited in that small museum, and released this record. Like the museum has a scale of 1:200 and 1:87, the music is made from making a similar scale model, I guess by slowing down sounds in a similar scale. Or maybe just silence slowed down, as both pieces last 4 minutes and 33 seconds. The 1:200 version is barely audible and just seems to have some vague sound happenings, the 1:87 model is a more electronic piece of microscopic events being played around. Music wise that is the more musical side of the two. Like much of Van den Dobbelsteens work this is a highly conceptual record; one that leaves more room for questions than it is prepared to give answers." - Frans de Waard, Vital Weekly.

2011 release. Limited numbered edition of 600. "Great, fantastic minimal-synth-tracks from legendary Dutch duo Van Kaye and Ignit. Van Kaye alias Ed Van Kasteren (studying history of the arts and being singer of Monomen in the late 70s) and Ignit Bekken (performing artist, painter and studying to become an art-teacher) meet in early 1980 and started working and experimenting with synthesizers. The result was the minimal/synth-classic and highly sought-after tapes A Slight Delay and With a Little Help, which they distributed and published through their own Ding Dong Discs label. Another ex-Monoman, William Wiusselink alias Wizzkopf, joined the project in 1982. VK&I did run the famous record-label Ding Dong Records & Tapes which published beautifully designed releases of independent/wave-artists such as Legendary Pink Dots, Bene Gesserit, Anne Gillis and many more incl. the all-time-classic-must-have-compilation Film Noir. This box includes both tapes A Slight Delay (as 8-track demo an 11-track original release) and With A Little Help as well as the ultra-rare Picasso on the Wall 7"-tracks, 17 compilation-contributions from 1981-85 (incl. the Radionome-tracks), 7 unreleased-tracks/demos recorded between 80-85 and a 30 minute live-concert held in Rotterdam 1983." - Vinyl-On-Demand.

The Tapeworm stumbled upon the lost psych rock recording, Live at F.W. by The Van Patterson Quartet, late during a sleepless night. A link started a chain of events -- the Wormery would not sleep until the answer had been found! "Who on earth are The Van Patterson Quartet?" we asked ourselves. We sent out feelers via our contacts. We waited. Replies came back -- digital shrugs, all expressing a deep fascination that something sounding so splendid could remain unearthed for so long. Then, "Mr. Big" stepped in. Quite by chance, he was neighbours with one of the band. Such serendipity. He hooked us up. Letters were written, requests made, permissions granted, and a few short weeks later a copy of Live at F.W., mailed with a blurry Polaroid, landed on our desk. We sat back, and listened properly for the first time. We were blown away. We had just been given possibly the last great unreleased psych rock recording. Who on earth are The Van Patterson Quartet? This recording dates, we believe, from the late 60s. It features this hitherto unknown band in full flight, live. It needs to be heard to be believed. Funky, fuzzed- up, flipped-out, fucked and fried. Forty minutes of hallucinating Hammond and ferocious feedback. Thats who they are." - The Tapeworm.

“Pop drones and minimal synth from the Dutch mountains. This LP, which is also available as part of the expansive 80s Minimal.Synth.Wave: Volume IIIbox set (VOD 138LP), covers the early-80s work ofRob van Wijngaarden. It opens with captivating minimal synth instrumentals from his 1981 split cassette with Les Chats as Rob Van, originally released on Ptôses Ptôse Production Présente label. Recording sound on sound, always using the first take for each layer, van Wijngaarden created a series of dark, moody, melodic pieces inspired by Bowies Low(1977) and punks DIY attitude. Van Wijngaarden founded Heavy Mental some time in 1980 for his contribution to Dutch post-punk label Plurexs 17 to 7 on 33 compilation EP, included here. Van Wijngaarden enlisted his friend Jacob Baars, who owned a guitar, and bought a Korg MS-20 synthesizer and a Revox A-77 tape deck (inspired by its mention in the notes ofEnos Discreet Music (1975)). The band played several gigs (including a supporting slot for Bush Tetras) in several incarnations. They later changed their name to Mental and continued as a trio, with Baars and Hans Deen on guitars and van Wijngaarden on drum machine and synthesizer; their sound was a grunge-like wall of guitars over industrial bass, with one-chord songs lacking any verse-chorus structure. The trio was at its best in live performance, a power captured here on "Charles Manson," originally released on the 1981 Wpk Festival compilation cassette, as well as two tracks from the Mental Livecassette, originally released in 1981 on van Wijngaardens Mental Cassettes label. Van Wijngaarden was part of the cassette-trading scene that Throbbing Gristles Industrial Records newsletter had helped to foster; he occasionally mailed out one-off cassettes hours after recording them, and tracks from one of these extremely rare tapes are included here. One of the tape-traders with whom van Wijngaarden exchanged work was Ruud Kluivers, who sent Heavy Mental their only letter after hearing 17 to 7 on 33. Kluivers had an MS-20 too, and wanted to jam; a 1981 collaboration with van Wijngaarden is represented here as well. The collection also includes a few tracks from other splits and compilations released between 1980 and 1982. There are many tales about the Dutch post-punk movement, and most are probably more captivating than this one, but van Wijngaardens work is just as intense as anything that was happening in the Netherlands at the time.” - Vinyl-On-Demand.

Title: Ex Patris
Format: LP
Label: Important
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"Limited to 500 copies. The title Ex Patris (From The Fathers) plays on the idiomatic baroque lute compositions presented here which emulate the classical repertoire. It also refers to this almost forgotten instrument, which was passed on by the fathers. The aim is to bring back and liberate the lute. The four compositions on Ex Patris form a circular narrative of interlocking repetitive melodic series. The follow up to Important release It Is All That Is Made kicks off with the pro apocalyptic track The Day is Coming. Amor Fati (Love Is A Religion) channels a deep interest in both love for religion and religious belief in love. Multiple palindromes are juxtaposed and linger. Son of Dawn consists of mirrored lute harmonics that serve as an intro to the 13 minute elegiac After The Fire Has Devoured All It Will Consume Itself. The piece builds and releases tension and puts layer upon layer of ecstatic melody. At the end even the work itself gets devoured but it remains eternal, with no potential beginning and without end." -Important

Title: Stations of the Cross
Format: CD
Label: Incunabulum
Country: Netherlands
Price: $17.00
"New release from baroque conceptualist and improviser, Jozef Van Wissem, who, for more than a decade, has been quietly but surely reinventing the vocabulary of that most unlikely of instruments, the lute. With the exception of the odd Renaissance preservationist context, the lute, which was once the most popular portable instrument in the Western world, has all but disappeared from our musical landscape. Despite the arcane associations of his chosen instrument, Van Wissem is no revivalist; his compositions often marry a deep and self-conscious knowledge of the instruments weighty history with a rigorous post-modern sensibility that has encompassed everything from appropriation to minimalist free improvisation, electronic manipulation, and the mirrored or palindrome musical structures for which he is perhaps best known. These palindrome compositions, a group of which are collected on Stations Of The Cross, are compositions that, like the words "radar" or "wow," or the phrase, "Madam, I"m Adam," read the same forwards or backwards. Each composition progresses through a series of notes to the midpoint of the piece, where the sequence then reverses and the pitches are played in retrograde order back to the compositions starting point. The effect is strange and subtle, and oddly psychological -- there is a sense that time expands and contracts back to the point of origin, while the exact moment of reversal is difficult to detect. Compositional expectations are similarly, subtly undercut and, being that the beginning is always also the end, these pieces tend to come to a close without resolution, which gives them a quietly unsettling, question-like quality. To make things even more interesting, these mirrored structures are often superimposed onto field recordings of airport terminal interiors which are digitally manipulated into mirrored structures of their own. These recordings lend an eerie, impersonal atmosphere, the specificity and contemporary nature of which stands in stark contrast to the timeless, esoteric quality of Van Wissems gut stringed lutes. Stations is a record of quiet, stately beauty and concept." - Incunabulum.

"Jacqueline Thibault (Laurence Vanay) often worked for other artists at the legendary Château dHérouville studio as arranger, keyboardist, co-composer, and assistant sound engineer. Between sessions she sometimes managed to record her own music. Several years after her two acknowledged masterpieces, Galaxies and Evening Colours, she was able to bring together the tracks for La Petite Fenêtre (The Little Window). As the 1970s ended, trouble with the Château finances meant that again it was impossible for her to present her work to interested record labels. Instead, I worked in another recording studio in Paris for fashionable artists, she said, and I managed after a time to resume and complete my unfinished songs. By that time, the French record companies were not interested in instrumental music anymore. The recordings therefore found themselves asleep on Parisian shelves, pending potential better days.

But she had little time for her own music, working day and night at legendary international recording studio, the Chⴥau d’H鲯uville. Still, Jacqueline managed to bring together the compositions for “Les Soleils de la Vie” (The Suns of Life), with the help of her perpetual musical accomplices—Serge Derrien (guitar, flute, wordless vocals) and John Chevalier, aka Popov (drums and percussion). There was also the timely intervention of other friends, Michel Santangelli (drums), Jean Claude Guzelli (bass) and Francis Moze. Decca Records was interested in producing the album back in 1977, but asked for a remix of the music. Only several years later was that finally possible—too late for Decca.

Format: LP

Country: Belgium
Price: $27.00
"Biomechanoid is the classic 1980 album by composer and flutist Joel Vandroogenbroeck. Its 1980, in Munich, Germany. Upstart production music label Coloursound Library releases their debut album. Capitalizing on the success of Ridley Scotts Alien film, the label dropped Biomechanoid, featuring cover art commissioned by H.R. Giger -- whose horrific Necronom IV lithograph served as the basis for the design of Alien -- and the music of the relatively unknown Joel Vandroogenbroeck. Comprised of bleak, cinematic synth soundscapes and percussion, the album served as an inaugural calling card for what would be a decade of dizzying solo releases by Vandroogenbroeck for Coloursound, running the gamut from Mesopotamian ethno-folk to synth sequencer funk to electro drum breaks to in-utero ambient delights. Though the Belgian-born Vandroogenbroeck, 74, may not be a household name, in an ideal world, he would be. As the founder, flautist, harpist, sitar player and keyboardist of the seminal acid-fried Swiss psych outfit Brainticket, he spearheaded the groups three main (and collectible) releases in the early 70s -- Cottonwood Hill, Celestial Ocean, and Psychonaut. Combining a love of exotic instruments coupled with mind-bending out-of-body excursions, the ever-changing collective developed something of a cult following throughout Europe and earned a reputation as one of the heavier psych outfits on the circuit -- which was something of a double-edged sword. While their experimental sound resonated with hippies everywhere, it didnt with the authorities, who associated the act with heavy drug consumption and subsequently began a ban of their music, especially the Psychonaut album, if for the title alone. After that bitter brush with censorship, the group quietly disbanded in 1972. After the dissolution of Brainticket, Vandroogenbroeck departed for the island of Bali with the intent of learning to build and play the gamelan -- an ensemble of primarily percussion instruments from Indonesia. It would become yet another weapon in his ever-growing arsenal of exotic instruments: he was already proficient on the sitar, harp, kalimba, assorted percussion oddities and all woodwinds by this point. Vandroogenbroeck became so enraptured with the frenetic sound of the gamelan that he subsequently left the tropics to start up a joged bumbung (a variation on a gamelan) band back in Switzerland. While playing small festivals and civic events with this group, Joel began to slowly gravitate towards the synth-heavy Kraut sounds of artists like Tangerine Dream and Klaus Schulze at the same time. And once he began dabbling with oscillators, he never turned back. After inking a library deal around this time with the nascent Coloursound label, who gave him complete creative control, Vandroogenbroeck began turning out releases at a rapid rate, often three to five a year, and under a variety of aliases like V.D.B. Joel, J.V.D.B, and Eric Vann. Starting with the desolate synth drone of Biomechanoid, he continued to expand his sound palette while on Coloursound, moving from early arpeggiators on Computer Blossoms to percussive sound collage on Birth of Earth; and from Oberheim DMX drum breaks on Video Games & Data Movements to Apple II ambient programming on Digital Project. Biomechanoid stands after all these years as an album full of dark, strange, disturbing soundscapes, the obscure side of Brainticket, proving how Joel was still a creative artist. Matte finishing. Double-sided insert. Pressed on 180 gram vinyl. Edition of 500 copies." -Aguirre.

"Posh Isolation presents Vanessa Amaras 2013 debut, the cassette Both of Us, on vinyl, with its sister recording from 2012, King Machine. Vanessa Amara, one of the strongest new voices in Danish experimental music, is the work of Birk Gjerlufsen Nielsen accompanied by his friend and long-time collaborator Victor Kjellerup Juhl. There is eminent beauty in the work of Vanessa Amara -- beauty that few people manage to reach in their work. The fragile and romantic compositions of synth, organ, piano, percussive tape loops, and guitar hold an incredible feeling of urgency and a wonderful originality. Both of Us and King Machine share a similar approach and feeling, yet certain differences persist. Like two different offerings to the same alter or the different heartbeats of two young men dueling over one girl. In an interview with Flesh War, Gjerlufsen Nielsen described the recording of Both of Us: "I recorded the music in the Winter of 2012-2013 with help from my closest friend in a small summer house by the sea, in the north of Sjælland... We had all our recording gear in the house and stayed there until late spring, late April... We asked the closest church with an organ if we could record in the church throughout the months we stayed there. The church was 30 km away, we had to bike their early in the morning and reached the church when it was still dark... We stayed in the church the following day and night, until we had recorded what we needed, drank their holy wine, ate their dry crackers, biked back to the house, and the following months we made tape loops and recorded synth and guitar, closely following the season change, waking up with the birds, finding youth in the April sunsets glow."

this records is a collage of home brew synth madness, fieldrecordings, detailed registrations of floris throwing a full drum kit 20 times of a staircase in a church, coincidences and liters of delicious tape delay spun together by a man who only eats fast food, as eating the real thing would take too much time, time that could be spent on more important things, like digging dick raaijmakers, art history, synths and long forgotten sound carriers!
finally, the first lp by one of my favorite belgians! after a bunch of self published tapes, cdrs and films it was about time!

“Hailing from the economically depressed wilds of Eastern Pennsylvania, a “remade/re-modeled” Vanity of the Tongue (few may recognize them from two micro-run cassettes of crudely recorded bass, guitar, rhythm box and wholesale negativity under different moniker) return as full band to deliver a debut long player as ambitious as it is confounding. Devised over countless budget pints at the Chicken Lounge, West Allentowns premier nite flight destination, Reality Fantasies consists of four well-considered portraits of bleak, modern existence, contrasted with drastic re-workings of song-as-source material. Eschewing implicit conservatism and convention in favor of a disorienting palette that places it in conversation with such time-tested classics of hardcore confusion as Disease is Relative, Psychedelic Inferno and Language of a Dying Breed (“conversation,” get it?), the focus on reorganization and self-reference draws as much from the likes of Unser Debut à Sechs, M.B. c. S.F.A.G. 81 or Lucier-esque pure sound experiments as it does any outfit associated with the making of aggressive, song-based music. Destined to become an apogee of no-scene hardcore punk (if not in this day, then perhaps when lizards return to walk Earth upright and discover it buried among the grounds of Denver International Airport), Reality Fantasies stands on a plane of its own contrivance, celebrating a Future of complete sound freedom whilst engaging in a hapless trawl through the decadence destined to rip mankind to pieces.

Title: LEnfant Assassin des Mouches (FKR 10th Anniversary Edition)
Format: LP
Label: Finders Keepers
Country: UK
Price: $28.00
"To mark its 2015 ten-year anniversary, the Finders Keepers label presents an improved, remastered repress, with updated liner notes in a gatefold sleeve, of its first release, a reissue of Jean-Claude Vanniers 1972 album LEnfant Assassin des Mouches. At the time of the 2005 reissue the resurgence of 60s Gallic pop, once known as yé-yé music, had escalated beyond an interstellar height. Without a shadow of doubt, the flagship LP with the best odds on becoming a discerning household object was Histoire de Melody Nelson (1971) by one Serge Gainsbourg, an inimitable 45-minute concept LP handcrafted by a bass-driven psychedelic rock group and a heaven-sent 1001-piece orchestral and choral symphony. The album left hip hop producers and progressive rock aficionados crying out for more and more for years to come. This LP was in a league of its very own... or was it? The seldom-sung musical arranger for Melody Nelson, Jean-Claude Vannier, is the lesser-spotted tell-tale seal of sample-friendly quality when it comes to crate-digging "en Français." Suitably, rumors among French record dealers claiming "the band who played Melody Nelson recorded a follow-up LP" became a legend of psychedelic folklore. Another unconfirmed rumor about JCV taking the remaining outtakes of the beloved Melody Nelson to create a promo-only experimental rock LP left sample-hungry producers and DJs in turmoil... The answers to these mysteries lay between the gatefold sleeve of an undiscovered conceptual album bizarrely titled LEnfant Assassin des Mouches by a custom-built avant-rock entourage called Insolitudes. So here we have it. For record-collectors looking for that special something, this LP contains the extra-special everything. Peruse the following genres: psychedelic, classical, soundtrack, jazz, hip hop, samples, avant-garde, funk. Then place a copy of LEnfant Assassin des Mouches in each section. History notes that when M. Gainsbourg first heard the initial bones of this LP he took his poetic pencil to paper and composed bizarre liner notes, thus consummating the most extraordinary concept album of all time. The story "The Child Assassin of the Flies" was to be included as the only information to grace the LPs highly collectible concertina-gatefold sleeve. The story in full is reproduced in its native tongue on this very special re-release package. DJs and producers such as Jim ORourke, Stereolabs Tim Gane, and David Holmes have spent sleepless nights in perusal of original copies of this perfect release and now regard it as "One of the Best." - Finders Keepers.

"Vinylization of a classic 2008 Yeay! Cassettes release, which has cast an odd thrall over local heads since it was first issued. Vapor Gourds is the solo project of local DJ, sound guy and man-about-town, Jake Meginksy, who is perhaps best known for his work in X.O.4 with Bill Nace and Johnny T. For this project, Jake has opted for a bizarre pile of machine sounds, none of them overly grating, with all sorts of near-subliminal pulse work raging around inside of em. Very hard to put a finger on exactly whats going down here. As soon as you decide to categorically shorthand the sound, Dagger Magic skitters off to another corner of the room. Parts recall everything from Sky Records synth-gush to cough-syrup dub-beats to Voice Crack-style electro-derangement. And theres plenty of stuff that defies any kind of simple language at all. Dagger Magic is a quiet masterpiece of form destruction. The more you listen, the more there is to hear, and the dagger slips ever deeper. Let it slide, baby. Edition of 300. Eye-catching cover by Bill Nace." -Feeding Tube.

Next Ill be typing some drivel about he studied with Milford Graves, plays prepared tympani, has remixed Body/Head and has collaborated with every out-there musician type New England has to offer...man, I love that one sided Nmperign collaboration LP, thats a good one. There I go again, mystique is the game, shape shifting, keeping the listener guessing, but, then again, youre not a listener, youre a potential listener, and a probable reader. Vapor Gourds "Incision Objects" likes to play with this mystery and the line you, probable reader, play between reading and listening. Leaning on conventions and musical ideas --beats, rhythms, sounds, samples-- and then stripping them down to non-essential and unused parts Megisnky crafts bare bones head-nodding remix ready, but fully realized, compositions. Not unlike killing a buffalo to methodically dissect its body and end up only eating the tuchas, Meginskys music as Vapor Gourds, displays an in depth knowledge of the cultural, rhythmic, and production elements of dance music but realizes its all about the bottom end, bottom line? With the interplay of your expectations and the skill honed through making percussion music in every damn genre percussion music is welcome or not, Vapor Gourds "Subtle Scatter" marks itself as a confusing mysterious shapeshifter of a record, one that can move your tuchas, you buffalo, so dont buffalo and grip this!

Title: Early Works
Format: LP

Price: $25.00
"The French-born Edgar Varese (1883-1965), believed music to be both an art and a science. His pioneering use of electronic instruments like the theremin, along with his theory of organized sound has earned him the impressive title of Father of Electronic Music. Varese spent the early twenties as a starving composer in NYC, writing works like the percussionless Octandre and Integrales, his first piece to use the term spatial music. Upon returning to Paris in 1928, he composed the celebrated Ionisation, the first piece ever written for an entirely percussion ensemble (thirteen percussionists and forty instruments). His 1936 piece, Density 21.5, written for solo flute for the premiere of George Barreres new platinum flute, is one of the great masterpieces for unaccompanied flute. It is also one of the only compositions written by Varese during this decade. His next major work, Deserts, was in fact not written until 1950. It was the first piece ever written for magnetic tape and orchestra and was meant to be the soundtrack to a film which would juxtapose images of actual deserts with images from past wars (the great deserts of civilization)." Featured works: Integrales, Octandre (performed by New York Wind Ensemble, Juilliard Percussion Orchestra); Ionisation (Juilliard Percussion Orchestra); Density 21.5 (Rene Le Roy); Interpolation I, II, III (Varese)." -Doxy.

Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"The "Collages" are an acclaimed series of experiments conducted by sound artist and composer Juan Carlos Vasquez to prove the digital capabilities of tone expansion in a single acoustic instrument. The technique consists in recording original performances of several works by celebrated composers from the past (for solo instruments), and reinventing the audio files by deconstructing the pieces as a collage, using different and complex kinds of digital audio processes to create a post-modern electroacoustic version of the classical piece. As a result, the usual acoustic instrument timber is expanded into deep and rich atmospheres using the entire range of frequencies. The collages series are also a sonic application of British painter J.M.W. Turners technique of using layers of colors and textures to turn everyday landscapes into powerful and expressive oneiric fantasies. Past versions were possible thanks to commissions by the Westminster and Chelsea Hospital/Museum (UK) in partnership with Royal College of Music (UK), the Arts Council through the Wiltshire Museum (UK), Polish Artists in London "PAiL" (UK), the Hilltown New Music Festival (Ireland) and the FEast 2013." - Cassauna.

"productions that dominated 2012s Ornamented Walls (LOVE 080LP). This double LP includes 12 of the 20 tracks included on the original 2014 limited six-cassette release of Death Is Unity With God, in advance of Modern Loves triple-CD edition compiling all the material. It clocks in at an hour and a half and features some of the most compelling productions from Fernow yet. Nodding to classic Muslimgauze, but also inspired by the parallels between religious fundamentalism at home in the USA and abroad, the oppressive atmospheres and destroyed rhythms isolate the gutted toil and drone in "Its to Come," while "F.B.I. God" reduces the drums to scorched blasts against some harrowing, darkside chords. The quasi-speed torment of "Manufactured Silencers Under Direct Orders" ends the A-side with dread, flowing into the haunting chorales and chiming percussions of "Living On and Off At the Shadows Motel" and the scything techno roil of "Small Explosives and Blasting Caps Inside the Pages of a Phonebook," before a particularly effective chamber-like meditation, "McVeigh Figure," draws aesthetic lines between ambient black metal, Coil, and early Autechre. "Waco Postmortem (Murrah)" ends the set operating nearly out of earshot with those incredible, sashaying synth motifs persisting in their struggle against the patina of hiss and exasperated rhythms blurred around the edges.

Format: LP
Label: Type
Country: UK
Price: $21.00
"Dominick Fernow might be best known for his industrial incantations under the Prurient moniker, but in recent months his attention has shifted towards a different outlet. Fernows interest in electronic music (from the clamorous grind of Muslimgauze to the recently-defunct Sandwell District imprint) has been well-documented, and it comes to a frothy head with his Vatican Shadow project. Revolving around themes gleaned from Iraq war propaganda and yellowing stacks of newspaper clippings, the tracks on Kneel Before Religious Icons are a perfect representation of Fernows modus operandi. Behind a wall of tape hiss, drum machine rhythms beat out memories of early Ministry and AFX while sickly FM synthesizer pads crawl and heave into the abyss. Like much of Fernows output prior to this, the emphasis is on societys darker crevices, but Vatican Shadow is steeped in an alarming mystery and sulfuric smoke that is sure to surprise recent converts. There is a scene slowly rising to the surface with acts such as Demdike Stare, The Haxan Cloak and Raime renewing our interest in the darker side of industrial electronic music, and Fernow has created a sound with Vatican Shadow that acknowledges this while retaining a faded and singular sound. Kneel Before Religious Icons is electronic music fished from the troubled depths of militarized suspicion, and all the better for it.

"Ornamented Walls is the most intense, brutal and, in many senses, most substantial work from Dominick Fernows Vatican Shadow project yet. Released to coincide with his first tour of Europe, the album incorporates the live mix rehearsals of "Operation Neptune Spear" with tracks made in their aftermath, recorded straight to tape and mastered by Matt Colton at Air Studios. Anyone familiar with Fernows live set-up will recognize the distinct nature of this material -- making use of stems and partial tracks separated into a cassette system which is then re-layered and mixed, effected with electronic processing. In short -- Fernow uses his tape machines like turntables in a mix, weaving a hazy and intuitive narrative of sounds that never quite head in the direction you expect, all imbued with an almost feral attitude thats exhilarating to witness, their limitations (ever noticed how VS tracks end so abruptly? the tape ran out), and their mechanical machine qualities used to devastating effect. Side A features all three parts of "Operation Neptune Spear," originally made available in a measly edition of 17 cassettes and sold at the first-ever Vatican Shadow live show in L.A. back in May 2012. Side B features an additional 25 minutes of previously-unreleased work made in the aftermath of the show and using the same set-up, including an astonishing revision of "Cairo Is a Haunted City," dis-assembled and re-wired, lending it a shortwave quality thats nothing short of revelatory." - Modern Love

None of the eight tracks included have been released before on any other format. At a time when the scene is saturated with "noise techno," the album is almost celebratory by contrast, balancing caustic licks of distortion and oppressive bass with cleanly mixed synth tones and ricocheting claps in a shell-shocked, surreal soundsphere. With production assistance from Juan Mendez (Silent Servant), the album includes the most direct and propulsive Vatican Shadow material yet, continuing an evolutionary shift away from the complex, collage-based narrative of those cassette releases into more visibly direct contact with the listener. There is a functional connection to dance music here, honing in on the human element embedded within a subject matter so fraught with inhumanity." - Hospital Productions.

Title: Selenelion
Format: CD
Label: Wierd
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"Its been said before that Stanley Kubrick seemed like a classical composer who created films instead -- that the images played out more like arias and overtures than a matinee movie. The inverse of that is probably the only way to approach Selenelion, the debut LP from Vaura. Less a collection of songs and more like an expedition into an elegantly foreboding universe, the eleven tracks that comprise the latest release from Wierd Records sound as if they were each crafted to evoke unearthly scenery and monolithic events. 

From harsh distortion and aggressive screams to cold and shimmering clean guitars and vocals, the spectrum of sound on Selenelion is both varied and atmospherically cohesive. Thunderous drums, droning synthesizers, percussive metals, acoustic guitars, and vocal arrangements that sometimes approach ritualistic plainchant recall artists like Ulver and Swans. Vauras particular blend of brutality and romantic melodicism can be attributed in part to the stylistic mesh of musicians: Kevin Hufnagel, Toby Driver, Josh Strawn, and Charlie Schmid also play in Gorguts, Dysrhythmia, Kayo Dot, Secret Chiefs 3, and Religious to Damn. Selenelion was recorded and mixed by Colin Marston of progressive black metallists Krallice, and signals a nod for Wierd Records to the roots of founder Pieter Schoolwerth who is also member of the seminal noise outfit Bloodyminded and a continuing supporter of acts like Locrian. 

The album title refers to a horizontal lunar eclipse: the moment at which the sun and the eclipsed moon can be seen at the same time. With song titles referencing everything from an Etruscan demoness to a Luciferian take on the conversion of St. Paul, and with artwork by the German photographer Alexander Binder, the unifying thread is an unmistakable sense of shadow-drenched enigma. "Drachma" refers to the coins that bought passage for the dead into the underworld, suggesting that everything following that track is part of an Orpheus-like journey. But repeated nods to the occult literature of Jorge Luis Borges, in particular to "The Aleph" and "The Zahir," two stories that deal with infinity and vision, suggest that beyond the the dark hallucinations there is also a serious meditation taking place on the limits and paradoxes of seeing. Approaching such subject matter by way of something as invisible and intangible as music, Vaura invites the listener to share in a visceral, yet intimate ceremony of sensuality and destruction." -Wierd.

Title: Selenelion
Format: LP
Label: Wierd
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"Its been said before that Stanley Kubrick seemed like a classical composer who created films instead -- that the images played out more like arias and overtures than a matinee movie. The inverse of that is probably the only way to approach Selenelion, the debut LP from Vaura. Less a collection of songs and more like an expedition into an elegantly foreboding universe, the eleven tracks that comprise the latest release from Wierd Records sound as if they were each crafted to evoke unearthly scenery and monolithic events. 

From harsh distortion and aggressive screams to cold and shimmering clean guitars and vocals, the spectrum of sound on Selenelion is both varied and atmospherically cohesive. Thunderous drums, droning synthesizers, percussive metals, acoustic guitars, and vocal arrangements that sometimes approach ritualistic plainchant recall artists like Ulver and Swans. Vauras particular blend of brutality and romantic melodicism can be attributed in part to the stylistic mesh of musicians: Kevin Hufnagel, Toby Driver, Josh Strawn, and Charlie Schmid also play in Gorguts, Dysrhythmia, Kayo Dot, Secret Chiefs 3, and Religious to Damn. Selenelion was recorded and mixed by Colin Marston of progressive black metallists Krallice, and signals a nod for Wierd Records to the roots of founder Pieter Schoolwerth who is also member of the seminal noise outfit Bloodyminded and a continuing supporter of acts like Locrian.

Artist: VAZZ/LA BAMBOLA DEL DR. CALIGARI
Title: Whisper Not/The Wrong Holiday
Format: LP
Label: Forced Nostalgia
Country: Belgium
Price: $20.00
"The Forced Nostalgia label continues to expand and inform with the release of this split release featuring 1980s outfits Vazz and La Bambola Del Dr. Caligari. The A-side features six tracks from Glasgows Vazz, a duo consisting of Anna Howson and Hugh Small. Whisper Not was recorded at the legendary Hellfire Club in Glasgow in 1982 and was eventually released on limited edition cassette, before the band were signed up to appear on the 2LP compilation Antelopes & Alligators on Operation Twilight -- a sub-label of Belgiums infamous Les Disques Du Crépuscules. For one reason or another, the compilation never materialized -- but the reference to Crépuscules should give you some idea of where Vazz figure in the scheme of things. Whisper Not really is an astonishing collection of tracks -- a small but perfectly-formed companion-piece of sorts to Antenas Camino Del Sol (which appeared in the same year), with Anna Howsons distinctive voice accompanying guitars, bass, drum machine, percussion and the Casio MT-30 keyboard -- a classic configuration. But what set Vazz apart from their contemporaries is Hugh Smalls forward-thinking production signatures -- something thats most evident on "Cast Reflections" -- the standout track on this mesmerizing set. The way the drum machine and guitar have been treated and compressed sounds like something from The Cures Faith album reworked in a current electronic studio -- its just a profoundly beautiful and affecting piece. It really is hard to believe that these tracks have languished in the archives until now. The B-side features Italys La Bambola Del Dr. Caligari and five tracks recorded between 1983 and 1986. The band were a short-lived minimal synth trio from Bologna, Italy, consisting of the exotically named Judy Asquith (voice), Aurelium Spitty (sound engineer, synth, drum machines, effects) and J.R. Ewing (keyboards, effects). They recorded their first demo tape in early 1984 and sporadically played live in 1985/1986, eventually arranging the soundtrack for an installation at the art gallery Number Zero (Bologna) in Feb. 1986. Several self-produced tapes were recorded over the years but were never properly released. In 2005, Roberto Napoli mastered all the recordings from the analog tapes and kindly assisted in editing the selections made by Forced Nostalgia. The result features some of the finest lost-and-found musical gems from the 80s gloom-pop era, finally available for public consumption 25 years after they were recorded. 500 copies only, cut at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin." - Forced Nostalgia

Label: Permanent
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Never before released archival material from Chicagos answer to Germanys 70s kosmische/electronic scene!!!!!!! Featuring Bil Vermette!!!! VCSR existed between 1978 and 1984. They werent a band or a group so much as it was a collective. They never had an official release but recorded over 60 reels of tape from which cassettes were mixed down for their own use or to give to friends. They were to be the first record on the Waxx Traxx label with Al Jourgenson producing but that never came to be. Tape #4 is one of these raw reels recorded in 1979 and 1980. There are overdubs but no edits or redos, it was live onto tape and then maybe a second pass to add leads, etc. Many of the reels are live onto one track only. This was done before they had a mixer. Most of these reels are now in Washington state and some are here in Chicago and some are not accounted for. Instruments used: Arp-2600, Korg MS-20, Rhythm Ace, Yamaha & Farfisa organs, guitar, ElectroComp synthesizers and various other keyboards and effects --Bil Vermette. For fans of: Klaus Schulze, Popol Vuh, Cluster, Bitchin Bajas and kosmische musik from the back catalogs of Ohr, Sky and Brain." - Permanent.

Moody folk chords bang up against frantic fuzz turnarounds. Over it all, lyrics of abstract yet direct poetry are hollered and crooned, aided by well-placed backing vocals." - Heavy times call for a heavy soundtrack, and thats what Chicagos VEE DEE has accomplished with their new double album Public Mental Health System.

"I have been interested in junk materials and have made sound works since several years ago. Before then, I listened to experimental music as a fan, but the border between music and non-music became meaningless from encounters with Fluxus, sound-art, media-art and others. Since then, I love the texture of sound itself. I collected abandoned analog televisions when the transmitting system of broadcast signals was changed to digital format in 2011. They are one of my favorite instruments at present, and I hold live performances and installations using them. On this CD I used analog TV, cassette tape recorder, and video players. However, the sounds are not manipulated, and I recorded their spontaneous machine-noise only. It this experimental music? I think it may be discovered music. Obviously, I cannot get away from the fascination with ordinary equipment in my life." - Veltz. Housed in a cardboard paper gatefold sleeve.

One of these included a stint at the End Of Cole Avenue club in Dallas--one of the Velvets few live performances where a professional sound engineer was actually on hand to record the sets. Some of the songs recorded over those few nights showed up in 1974 on their 1969: Velvet Underground Live album, but the sound quality was not great due to Mercurys use of third or fourth generation tapes.

"Esther Venrooy resides in a constant snakepit of modular movements and sonic acupuncture. An imaginary. almost filmic world where gameboys morph into howling wherewolves. ravening the shattered bits of saxophone sounds with vague buzzing and popping crackles. Anchored by the subtle use of harmony and dynamism. she opts for processed meditations in maze examples. combining more traditional electro-acoustic composer techniques with frigid. slightly harsher shots of deconstructed digital fuckery. She sure sharps some sonic pencils with swirling layers that are cut up. mangled and dragged into the present. Not your average run of the mill cocktail waitress becomes Hollywood coddle story but pretty goddamn addictive blackened ambience. Bathing in a selfconsciously dense atmosphere. loaded with contrasting metallic chunks of noise. she manipulates the rumbles with rich expression and acute arrangements that develop into a desolate electronic landscape. The balancing cord between audio and visual thundering she aspires towards. Her approach never wears out and diving into the realms of film fragments and striking field recordings. she pursues a journey where the source material is anything but traceable. All that megaton sonic alchemy weighs up and shows this is way more than an angry lady that turned her back on academic audio processing. the kind of sweaty dust that belongs in retirement homes. Next thing you know you are fragmented into a non-executable floorplan. The storm has spent itself." - Audiobot.

Title: S/T
Format: LP
Label: Ultra Eczema
Country: Belgium
Price: $28.00
"Wout Vercammen (1938) is a highly influential visual artist from Antwerp, Belgium. A nonstop performer since the early 50s, described by Ludo Mich as the Doctor Jekyll and Mister Hyde from Antwerp. A tight dressed dandy, going bananas every night, and looking as tight and clean the morning after. He has been inspiring the Belgian underground art scene for more than fifty years. He was the youngest artist making real paintings at the end of the fifties. Abstractionism reduced to one gesture. One sweep. One movement of the sword. One twirling horizon. Pulling Hokusai into space and time, Vercammen organized and executed the very first happenings in Belgium in the early sixties. Great collages, the only real pop artist in Belgium, latex word paintings, pneumatic forms before someone else got bigger with it. Always on the move. The way Wout Vercammen acts, performs, talks and moves is perfectly captured on this LP! When living in Antwerp, chances are you witnessed a Wout Vercammen performance without even realizing it, this is possible at any given moment. Smuggling jenever into prison, painting the copper dome of the Carolus Borromeus church white, filling blue garbage bags with air, and especially howling like a wolf, primitive throat singing and using the whole bar as a percussive instrument! Wout Vercammen changes reality, and makes it a tiny bit better. This record is a collection of accidently recorded moments and a composition of a black, a yellow and a red paint bucket all shook up through a synth and a 4 track! All varying from percussive punk primitive madness comparable to Kommisar Hjuler, a strange conversation in a garden to soundpoetry, howling and screaming. I am absolutely psyched to release this, as Wout Vercammen along with Ludo Mich has always been my favorite Antwerp psycho! Reminiscent of Ludo Mich, Kommisar Hjuler, the Vienna Actionists, Hans Krüsi. The LP comes in a offset printed sleeve with pictures of the artist, an insert with more pictures and liner notes by art critic Hans Theys! Limited to 400 copies." -Ultra Eczema

"It all started with a newspaper ad. On the morning of April 3rd, 2004 I was reading through a local newspaper. There I saw an ad where some store sold rock drills that they had got from Swedish army surplus. On the evening of the same day I was in another town to play my first gig as the guest bass player for Verde. I told Mika of Verde about the hilarious ad that I had seen in the paper. We had already recorded most of the material for the this collaboration, and Mika suggested that we should name the collaboration album "Kalliopora", which is of course Finnish for rock drill. Then he started fantasizing how he would buy one and drill his way beneath his neighbours house and set there a bomb. This recording doesnt sound much like a rock drill or even a bomb. Instead, there is the unique sound of Mikas self-built synthezisers, a bunch of guitars played by yours truly, and all kinds of other sounds that I hope you all like, even if they dont sound like rock drills. - Pekka PT/Clay Figure.

Title: Two Archipelagos
Format: LP
Label: Eyland
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
⿿Two Archipelagos looks at how different kinds of music-making machines interact, with human intervention often limited to making sure that various forms of noise interfere with each other. Verdun is generally preoccupied with oscillatory sounds, whether generated through analogue feedback loops or repeated digital synthetics. These are the vaguely pulmonary rhythms that come from the warp core aboard the USS Enterprise, or else from your CD player when something goes terribly wrong. Verdun also love to torture electric guitars. Beyond that, the sounds variety and singularity make it near impossible to describe. The opening track, ⿿Days of Being Wild,⿝ records the interaction between several textures of feedback and repetition, interrupting itself now and then with the static clipping of an over-distorted guitar, or else with the long drone of dissonant chords. The icing on this cake of noise, near the end of the song, is a crystal-clear series of descending synthetic notes, as might come out of a ray-gun. Similar interplay happens in ⿿(Oo)⿝. We hear the worlds worst garage band⿿a mutilated electric guitar, a cheap drum kit unskillfully played⿿but this is so muffled that the garage door might be shut. Then the robotic parents come to complain in their modem-language, and the rest of the song performs the two groups dispute: Verdun is about exploring just such contrasts between acoustical and digital noises. In Two Archipelagos, Verdun offers an insightful unfolding of the textural possibilities that our weird technological vector makes possible; this is a record that asks oblique questions and makes strange observations about what music today can and should do. Its a challenging and rewarding listen.⿝ ⿿ Seth Perlow. Hand-screened limited edition of 100 copies.

Title: Cross & Satellite Station
Format: CD
Label: Lexicon Devil
Country: Australia
Price: $13.00
"Originally released by Lexicon Devil in 2002. Verdure is Donovan Quinn, who resides in Walnut Creek, deep in the East Bay of San Francisco. Hes performed his songs with the Skygreen Leopards (collaborating with Glenn Donaldson) and can currently be found performing solo, occasionally being joined by various friends and collaborators under the umbrella of the 13th Month. His Verdure alias draws influence from heavy collaboration with the Jewelled Antler Collective, that loose-fitting West Coast group of artists known for bathing themselves in the glow of free-improv, rustic Americana, backwater psychedelia, electronic experiments, the outlaw spirit of classic 80s hardcore, and ghostly, folk-inspired sounds. Cross & Satellite Station is a strange beast to pin down. It could be called acid-folk or ramshackle pop with a nice, lo-fi mix of aching vocals, strummed guitars, tape loops, thundering organ, scattered percussion and the odd sample here and there. When the electric guitar breaks into that fuzzed-out solo on "Pope Innocent X," or when Donovan bursts into the chorus on the mesmerizing "Suns Gonna Come Take Over My Sky," it might make you remember that the "new weird" zeitgeist spawned some true gems. If youve ever dug the sounds of Tyrannosaurus Rex, Skip Spences Oar, Nikki Sudden/Epic Soundtracks, Syd Barrett at his most unhinged, or Jandek at just about any point in his recorded life, then youll dig this."- Lexicon Devil

Title: Katha Visions
Format: LP
Label: Permanent
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"A reissue of BIL VERMETTEs phenomenal private press LP, Katha Visions, from 1984. "Fans of all things SYNTH absolutely must hear this LP. Bil is a synthesizer aficionado and it shows.  The first track on the dark side is Mountain Funeral, an aptly titled ambient synth dirge if there ever was one. The title track ventures into territory that was likely influenced by Terry Riley and couldve easily been an influence on Bitchin Bajas. Its a repetitive, layered, and soothingly long centerpiece to the album. Long Trail Down closes out the A-side with effects that sound like seagulls floating over the top of the layered synth chord drones and melodies. Its an easy track to get lost in, but then again, so is this whole record. The light side (aka Side B) begins with Morning Dance an upbeat number featuring the first appearance of synthetic rhythms. Up to this point, Katha Visions has been completely instrumental, but Someday Soon features the only appearance by guest vocalist DAN COOPER. Coopers voice is melancholic and robotic, which fits in with the rest of the track perfectly. Staircase sounds like a long-lost John Carpenter horror flick theme while the albums closer Opposites Attract is the curveball track on Katha Visions. It includes the first and only appearance by BRUCE WALTERS, an old high school chum of Vermettes. Bruce disrupts the synth-clusiveness of the record with some soaring guitar lines that have us wondering what else he was up to around this time. We could also see Moon Duo doing a pretty bitchin cover of this one. Edition of 300 copies." - Permanent.

Title: Lend an Ear, Leave a Word
Format: LP

Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Kye is proud to present “Lend an ear, leave a word” the new LP from Glasgows Mark Vernon. "The pieces composed for this album combine field recordings of contemporary Lisbon with found tape recordings from the past;  reel-to-reel tapes, micro-cassettes and Dictaphones collected from the Feira de Ladra market, a popular and lively flea market in the Alfarma district. Each tape recording is an audio snapshot of a specific time; a family album in sound, a musical performance, a compilation of treasured music, or even just the fun of playing around with a tape recorder captured for posterity. Every thoughtless edit or push of the record button teleports us to a different time and place. The musical material extracted from the tapes is also an evocative signifier  that locates it within a specific era. The interesting thing is how the tapes accumulate different strata of time even within a single side.There are consecutive chronological recordings but also sequences with unexpected breakthroughs where the user has carelessly fast-forwarded through the tape, randomly ‘dropping-in’ new recordings. These accidental edits create instantaneous new collages of sounds and voices.  I have endeavoured  to retain the essence of these unintentional edits and unexpected outbursts in the pieces I have assembled here. The noisy whir and clicking of the various tape mechanisms is evident on many of the found recordings. As the material is sped up and slowed down it acts as an internal clock, a continuous, steady marker of time, almost like the second hand of a timepiece. All of the pieces contained here within explore one particular environment - the city of Lisbon. Field recordings by their very nature are time-based but the introduction of found tapes into the mix expands the time-scale of these studies from just the short period spent in the city making recordings, backwards to possibly forty or more years in the past. It is a portrait in time *and* place, an archeology of sound. The result of the audio flotsam and jetsam washed up on the shores of low commerce in the flea markets of Lisbon." (Mark Vernon) “Lend an ear, leave a word” arrives in a full color matte stock sleeve with insert and download card that features additional pieces left off the LP due to time constraints. Mastered by Jason Lescalleet in an edition of 400." - Kye.

Title: Under The Blood Red Lava Lamp
Format: CD

Price: $12.00
"Connecting all the dots to get the complete Vertical Slit picture has been a grail-like task for hundreds of record collectors since the band and its leader Jim Shepard were outed in Forced Exposure # 13 in the late 80s. Whether James Johnson counts himself among the minuscule number of V/Slit completists is moot; the impeti for initial digging around and eventual article-publishing were the basement roar and defiant outsider vibe of the Smudge seven-inch (New Age, 1981) and Under the Blood Red Lava Lamp cassette (Old Age, 1986). Apocryphal? Perhaps. Baloney? Perhaps not. Still, the end result remains the same: the word was out and here we all are. Save some room, theres pie. This CD collects all the tracks from both the Smudge EP and the Lava Lamp cassette, both of which were recorded live in the latter part of 1980. Vertical Slit-at any time-were an anomaly whose live sound was unlike any other band preening around the south campus of Ohio State. They most assuredly did not nod in the direction of either NME or NY Rocker. Instead they pinned back ears Creem-style; three meth-baked, beer-soaked shamen who concocted a unique midwestern prog/metal slobber somewhere between In the Court of the Crimson King and Sabbath Bloody Sabbath. Even though no onell read about em in The Wire, no less of an authority than Chuck Eddy immortalized V/Slit when he ranked Lava Lamp number 455 in his "seminal" book Stairway to Hell: The 500 Top Heavy Metal Albums of All Time, beating out not only the two aforementioned influences (at 460 and 488 respectively) but also Confusion Is Sex (number 459). Says Chuckles, "[Lava Lamp] adds up to a moss of pedal-mass not unlike Hearthan-era Pere Ubu." Get the picture? And for those of you who can only be moved by Joy Division covers (hello!), V/Slits version of "I Remember Nothing," done as a tribute to Ian Curtis (who had died in May of 80), absolutely (to be enunciated Eddy-like) gets atomized! So surrender your shekels and climb aboard. In the eternal words of Jim Shepard, "Its here/Its now/Eat it up/Youll enjoy." Contains original Lava Lamp liner notes as well as a remembrance from Old Age/New Age honcho (and Anyway recording artist) Mike Rep." - Siltbreeze.

"In 1970, when Swiss garage-beat band Les Sauterelles split, their leader, Toni Vescoli, decided to start a solo career. At first, inspired by Dylan, he thought of going strictly acoustic, but he soon changed his mind and started incorporating psychedelic and electric elements to his sound, such as feedback, primitive drum machines, guitars and vocals filtered through Leslie speakers etc., as he was also influenced by bands like Pink Floyd and King Crimson. He also incorporated into his repertoire some of the songs he had written for the never-recorded Sauterelles concept album, Seven Deadly Sins. In 1971, Toni released his debut solo album, Information, a folk-rock/psychedelic gem which reflected his influences at the time: folk, rock, psychedelia, and progressive-rock. From fragile acoustic numbers to dark, wigged-out psychedelic tracks, this is highly recommended to anyone into C.Q.-era Outsiders or Frank Nuyens Rainman album. Stunning mastertape sound, original gatefold sleeve, repro of the rare poster and insert with detailed liner-notes by Mike Stax." -Guerssen.

“Mexican rock had a strong renaissance in the eighties, when most bands, majorly coming from the prog scene, turned to Spanish language again. One of the big acts from that era was Jorge Reyes led Chac Mool. Chac Mool counted on its ranks with Carlos Alvarado, who was an accomplished musician on its own and who would record one of the most interesting electronic prog albums of the era, on which Reyes also collaborated. Originally released on mexican private label Momia in 1980.
"Carlos Alvarados Via Lactea (Milky Way) is now reissued on vinyl 35 years later. Eurock was especially interested in electronic Cosmic Music exploring both the inner and outer spaces of sound and consciousness. Of all the great music I had heard from Germany’s Klaus Schulze to Tangerine Dream & Spain’s own Neuronium, the album by Carlos stood apart from the rest.
In a sense, it combines the best of worlds, celestial sonic exploration and deeply emotional spiritual listening. A concept album, the track titles convey the musical journey Carlos undertaking - The Structure of the Universe, Garden of the Divine Presence, Into the Light, Man in Eternity, Meditation Post Atomic & The Lark and the Virgin. He employs a vast array of classic electronic instruments - ARP, Korg, Yamaha, synthesizers, Crumar Orchestrator, Mellotron, Piano, Flute & Tapes. The album also features notable guest musicians such as Jorge Reyes and Arturo Meza.
The music you encounter upon listening is not easy to describe. Simply listen, close your eyes and imagine yourself in a majestic Holy Shrine. The sound of the earth’s heartbeat is slowly pulsating in different rhythms; solar winds from out of the sky are alternately wafting then gusting through the open spaces. In accompaniment, elemental sounds of nature fill the air, comingling with melodies from the cosmic spheres and the warm tones of exotic analogue electronica. All of these elements ultimately alchemize into an immaculate creation, a galactic symphony of Birth, Life, Death & Eternity.
“The Wah Wah reissue, made under license from and with the help of Carlos Alvarado himself, comes with remastered sound and will include one bonus track not on the original LP. Like the original, it will be housed on a flapped envelope style cover, this time in luxury silk screened metallic copper cardboard. Features a colour insert with photos and notes, plus a bonus Momia sticker based on the one given on the original release. Limited edition, only 500 copies pressed!” - Wah Wah.
"Via Lactea is a masterpiece, fusing the technological magic of early electronic tone colors with the spirits of the ancient ones beautifully. Since 1980, Carlos has continued making music as well as running his own label Momia Records. To date the label has released 12 albums by various groups, as well as projects documenting his various other diverse musical incarnations. Carlos’ latest release in 2013, entitled La Musica de los 7 Chakras, offers yet another transcendent musical listening experience." - Archie Patterson, Eurock.

Patrick Vian plays Moog 2C, ARP 2600, Moog Sequencer and piano and gets help from jazz musician Mino Cinelu (who had played with the likes of Gong, Weather Report and Miles Davis) on drums and percussion. Georges Granier adds Fender Rhodes, marimba, noise and scissors. Bernard Lavialle (Ame Son) plays guitar. Together they create a unique hybrid of experimental electronic, jazz and world music. This highly original sound made Steven Stapleton include Patrick Vian on the famous Nurse With Wound list of adventurous music." - Staubgold.

"Every family has a freak (or two). Every decks got a wild card. Weve got VIBES. Ante up. NNFs loosest cannons return to the recording fray with, Psychic, a blown-out briar patch of basement garage fantasy masquerading as obscurist protest funk-and the bands first vinyl statement. Recorded in Eagle Rock on a last legs-style 4-track, the EPs four songs are jacked deep in the red, with fuzz bass, wah shrapnel, vocal sloganeering, and drum racket all fighting for tape room. Competition is fierce. Recent live faves like Dead Horses and Night Court appear in particularly revved-up form, as do the first two Vibes songs ever written, Psychic and Prisms Of Fame. All bases are covered. All soul trains are derailed. Here comes the judge. Black vinyl 33 RPM singles in full-color fold-over sleeves with collage artwork and lettering by CAMERON STALLONES, photographs by CAITLIN C. MITHCELL, plus a rant-y revolution scrapbook insert.

Format: CD
Label: VHF
Country: USA
Price: $14.50
"The latest and current pinnacle from the quintet of Neil Campbell, Bridgit Riley, Julian Bradley, Michael Flower, and Adam Davenport was assembled from recordings of their weekly sessions in Flowers kitchen. The tracks here represent the joyous, celebratory side of VCO - all forward motion, massed strings, percussion, horns, and little instruments rocketing forward in a swirl of sound. Compared to the more austere sounds of recent CDs like Lino Hi and Versatile Arab Chord Chart, the tracks here take off from the spot where the loose hippie-chant-and-drum action of collectives like Amon Düül intersects with the polyglot instrumental approach of mid-60s Sun Ra (ref. "Exotic Forest," "Shadow World," etc). "There is no chord formation that can be planned," says Bridget Hayden, "which creates elation or sadness, or any art which is profound enough to change anything fundamental about a person. There is just a resonance around us which musicians and artists are using or not using." - VHF.

Format: LP
Label: VHF
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"The ever-mysterious VIBRACATHEDRAL ORCHESTRA returns from another relatively quiet period with an uncompromising set of outre jams on a trio of limited-edition LPs. Slightly reorganized around a line-up of stalwarts MICK FLOWER and ADAM DAVENPORT with frequent collaborators JOHN GODBERT (TOTAL) and JOHN MOLONEY (SUNBURNED HAND OF THE MAN), the band here stretches way, way out over these six sides. Joka Baya offers up a set of shorter pieces on the A-side in a high-fidelity style that contrasts the dark, smoky sound of the rest of the tracks. The percussive grooves are overlaid with SUNROOF!!-like shimmer, stabbing electric leads, gentle acoustic rain, and droning organ peeking through at opportune moments. The roaring side-long epic on the flip is a droning, phasing slice of psychedelia with Moloneys drums battering the tape in between long stretches of humming stasis."

Label: Lexicon Devil
Country: Australia
Price: $13.00
"Originally released on the Lexicon Devil label in 2004; a reissue of their obscenely rare 1999 LP on the Roaratorio label, with three bonus tracks. Vibracathedral Orchestra started in 1998 with the core 5-piece line-up of Neil Campbell, Bridget Hayden, Michael Flower, Adam Davenport and Julian Bradley. Between the five of them, a musical CV would read like a history of UK underground experimental music from the last decade or so, with members having been involved with the likes of Richard Youngs, Simon Wickham-Smith, Sunroof, Skullflower, and others. The sound and aesthetic of VO is based heavily on percussive, improvised, minimalist drones that occasionally bear heavy resemblance to everything from very early Velvet Underground (and proto-/post-Velvets projects with John Cale, Angus MacLise and La Monte Young) to Popol Vuh and Amon Düül to essential UK cult artists like Third Ear Band and AMM. With a massive array of percussive, stringed and toy instruments (bells, recorders, flutes, mandolins, violins, whistles, organs, etc.), the band soon began wowing people over with their limited self-released CD-Rs and occasional live shows. So, in the intervening years, with a smattering of "real" releases on VHF under their belt, and various limited vinyl releases elsewhere, comes this Lexicon Devil CD. My Gates Open... was originally released on the Roaratorio label in 1999 in an addition of only 250 copies. Not only is the album considered by many fans to be their finest work, but the CD contains a bonus three tracks from the same recording session that until now have remained unissued. Musically, it all scorches in that patented Vibracathedral style: monolithic sheets of organic, repetitive drones that arch into quieter, more subtle territory, rhythms and grooves. This expanded edition is certainly an excellent place to start in exploring the world of Vibracathedral Orchestra. "-Lexicon Devil

"Ragged + Right was originally released (on CDr) in a miniscule edition of 60 to coincide with a live performance at the Holy Trinity Church in Leeds. Chances are, if you werent in attendance that night you probably missed out on this one. In this day in age where bands crank out limited edition CDrs on a weekly basis, another one slipping through the cracks would hardly merit further mention - simply add it to the pile of decaying plastic discs and move on. Such a fate for Ragged + Right however, would be a severe injustice given this release is certainly one of the highlights in the VCO discography (and is also notable for the inclusion of special guests John Godbert, Marc Orleans and Matthew Bower). With this in mind, weve taken it upon ourselves to bring this album to the masses with a fanclub edition reissue.

Here the quintet of Michael Flower, Neil Campbell, Bridget Hayden, Adam Davenport and Julian Bradley (joined by raconteur John Godbert) feature in a set of upbeat tracks that put the groups radical instrumental strategies into a package of full-on rock action. Recorded live using a binaural head system, the sound is nicely ragged in a you-are-there way, with scouring guitars and bleeping electronics riding atop the bands signature grooves. As with some of the bands other records, theres more than a hint of the early Velvet Underground spirit in these ten tracks.

"VHF presents a public service reissue of this impossibly rare and choice title in the VIBRACATHEDRAL ORCHESTRA oeuvre, originally issued by the band in 2004 in an edition of 250. Featuring the "classic" lineup (MICK FLOWER, NEIL CAMPBELL, BRIDGET HAYDEN, ADAM DAVENPORT, JULIAN BRADLEY) that made Queen of Guess and Dabbling With Gravity and Who You Are, this self-titled double takes a wild ride through the inner-workings of VCOs stream of consciousness. Many of the tracks (selected from research and development jams) cut in abruptly, continuing the informal, expansive vibe of the bands other self-released items. The thick blanket of signature drone-fog is never far away, anchoring tunes that veer from early Velvets-style rock jammers ("Thrift") to swirling electronic mystery ("Clear"). On side three, "Gist" builds up a looping, guitar-led rhythm like a lost AR & Machines track, sharing the same side with the pulsing "Floetz," which rides a taut electro-pulse bolstered by group small percussion. This lengthy two-disc album concludes with the almost side-long "Minkey," featuring the full complement of VCO sound signatures in one big, hallucinatory swirl. Exclusive to this release is a 35-minute DVD of three live performances selected by Flower. A rare chance to see some cinema verite of the group in action, the performances here (shot in the UK in 2005 and 2007) are all on the rocking side, with furious drumming and guitar strangling. Perhaps best of all is Flower and Campbells optional audio commentary track (!) on "Wisdom T," providing some insight on the how and why (and some witticisms, too)." -VHF.

The sound is dark and rough, almost Xpressway-like in its claustrophobic atmosphere. The percolating krautrock stylings of "If You Cant Smoke Em" chugs along hypnotically for over 13 minutes to close out the side. The entire B-sides 20-plus minutes are devoted to the clanging free sound of "Eyes of Wood," where gamelan-like metal percussion dominates the proceedings." - VHF.

"So far the first and only record ever made by The Vibracathedral Orchestra using a 24-track mixing board.

"This is music as a shamanic aid, made as much for the players themselves as for the listeners. But as Im writing from the listening perspective, I have to inform yall that this is music to get you there. Every track sounds as though it has always just been there, its just you aint quite tuned into its peculiar frequency until now. The 12-and-a-half minute Wearing Clothes of Ash is like a piano-led Paradieswarts Duul-period drone-a-thon with John Cale and Terry Riley guesting on viola and keys. Following this, the sublime Baptism Bar Blues is proof positive that they can rock the riot house with pure adrenaline rush when the decision is made. Indeed, this track is magnificent and should be available to the masses free or in pill form." - Julian Cope.

Format: LP
Label: Krayon
Country: UK
Price: $26.00
“The A-side drops straight into one of those time-evaporating sleights-of-hand from a simple stack of loops. A tidal guitar figure wraps around sparse ricocheting foundations of moiré percussion as harmonic resonances flow in and around the space, segueing into one of the most beautiful pieces Vibracathedral Orchestra have ever caught on tape. A truly glorious cascade of pentatonic feedback augmented by circling horn ascensions and the ever-present hand drum and shaker, rattle and oomph. The B-side was recorded on the same binaural bonce as the A but instead is a fully blown-out NO-FI blast documenting a performance at Cafe OTO and features trap-star Chris Corsano. A wild, snow-blind, open-cranium trip. Corsanos drums flatten to a blur of metallic clatter, spiky overtones, and room-levitating bass drum punctuation. Ideas rise and fall from within the maelstrom of their ritual; a two-finger tonebank solo teeters on the brink of its own crisis, the occasional astral whizz-bang floats around the ear-space drawing out your minds focus, a bloated, head-nodding bass riff appears, everyone gets involved. The shred goes seriously out, taking every head and item of furniture not nailed down with it. Art by John Godbert; design by Michael Flower. Mastered and cut by Lewis Hopkin.” - Krayon.

"The second full-length outing from the quintet of NEIL CAMPBELL, MICHAEL FLOWER, JULIAN BRADLEY, BRIDGET HAYDEN, and ADAM DAVENPORT. Like their UK cousins and fellow VHF recording artists Sunroof!, VIBRACATHEDRAL ORCHESTRA usually works from a base of modal improvisation. Led by Campbells sawing violin, the group builds up arcs of lingering overtones beneath an undercurrent of melody. They cut the drones in their life with extremely effective bursts of near rock, in a style reminiscent of the pre-Nico Velvet Underground (circa 1966 or so). The bands combination of clattering percussion, droning strings, and considerable sense of where to put the "groove" makes them unique among their peers.

The seven tracks on Wisdom are the VCOs most rocking dispatch ever, neatly combining the Ra-like collage of tracks like "Wisdom Thunderbolt" with the insistent pulsing jams of "A Natural Fact" and "Order of the Broad Eraser." "Ochre Dust" and "Rainbow Whirlwind" are more in the old-school VCO thick-blanket of sound, with tuned-percussion melody peeking out from the fog. After a surprise opening, "Sway-Sage" heaves with raucous drumming (courtesy of MAGIK MARKER PETE NOLAN) under the swells of sound.

"Vice Versa was formed by Stephen Singleton and Mark White in 1978. They asked Martin Fry to join them after Martin had interviewed them for his fanzine Modern Drugs. They founded their own independent label called Neutron Records and produced their first release (Vice Versa -- Music 4 EP). This is probably one of the greatest minimal-synth releases ever without any doubts. Neutron Records most important contribution to the scene was the 1980 EP The First 15 Minutes, which featured four unsigned bands of Sheffield: Clock DVA, Im So Hollow, the Stuntkites and of course, Vice Versa. The band released another 7" (Stilyagi/Eyes Of Christ) and the cassette 8 Aspects of Love. As Vice Versa they played a numerous amount of concerts. Their first gig was together with the Human League at Now Society at the Sheffield University and it was called What no Drummers. When they went over to Holland on tour, they were invited to jam in a studio in Rotterdam. Martin started to improvise on vocals and everybody was surprised by the quality of his voice. They decided to make him the lead singer instead of Mark White and spent about a year writing new songs, thinking of a new name and concept. The result was ABC, one of the most famous UK pop bands of the 80s."-Democratic Dancebeat Records.

"Siltbreeze is proud to announce the long-awaited vinyl retrospective of perhaps the most elusive of all Christchurch ensembles, THE VICTOR DIMISICH BAND. Originally released in 1983 on Flying Nun in a minuscule edition, the bands lone self-titled 12-inch has become a cult classic more sought-after than owned. Through the intervening years, both the Xpressway and Medication labels issued cassette and CD compilations of the bands material. With a unique sound that fused an almost gothic styling with warbly desert psych a la 13th Floor Elevators, The Victor Dimisich Band created its own genre, one that still has not been been aptly codified to date. Membership included PETER STAPLETON (VACUUM, PIN GROUP, SCORCHED EARTH POLICY), STEPHEN COGLE (Vacuum, TERMINALS), ALAN MEEK (Vacuum, BILDERS), TONY OGRADY and MARY HENEY (25 CENTS, Scorched Earth Policy). Historians and enthusiasts know that Heney replaced OGrady just prior to the recording of the 12-inch, as the former had become a born-again Christian and sold his equipment. So there you have it.

"For our 55th release we are launching a special series called Dark Entries Editions, dedicated to 12″ singles made for the dance floor. The first release in this series is Victrola, the duo of Antonio “Eze” Cuscinà and Carlo Smeriglio from Italy. The band formed in Messina, but later relocated to Florence to join the rich musical scene there with Neon, Pankow, Alexander Robotnick and Diaframma. Beginning as a 4-piece combo (two guitarists, bassist, drummer) in 1979, they slimmed down to a synthesizer and guitar-based duo a few years later. Their sole release was the “Maritime Tatami”/”A Game Of Despair” EP, from 1983. Using an array of now-classic Roland synthesizers (TR 606, TR 303 Bassline, Juno 6) plus a Korg Polysix and Fender Stratocaster, they crafted two darkwave ballads. “Maritime Tatami” engulfs the listener with trance-inducing synth lines and melancholic vocals over its epic 8 minutes. Oblique minor-key bass lines provide an anchor while snappy, brittle 606 rhythms propel the track along. The lyrics tell the story of Tatami, a boy from a fishing town who yearns for a new life in the big city. “A Game of Despair”, on the flipside, is a haunting crawl through the eyes of a woman left by her lover. An angular guitar riff repeats hypnotically, as fragile icy synth lines chime emptily above it. Each song has been carefully remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The vinyl comes housed in an exact replication of the original jacket, and includes an insert with lyrics and never-before-seen photos. Victrolas only release is a truly singular and timeless masterpiece—its from a dimension of its own." - Dark Entries.

Title: Brud: Volumes I-III
Format: Triple CD
Label: Pan
Country: UK
Price: $24.00
"Brud is a three volume compilation of recordings from 1995 to 2011 by Andre Vida, morphing seamlessly between a sense of total irreverence and the sublime. His spontaneous compositions and notated works are the angled mirrored counterparts of a transient saxophone-driven performance language, drawing on elements of 1970s performance art, new music, improvisation cult, folk and pop hybrids, channeling them into asymmetrical tunes of feral beauty. Brud traces the development of Vidas wayward language through 16 years of copious ruminations. The three delightfully polymorphic, perverse discs unite sparkling solo sax, pieces for cello and woodwind sextet, synth/concrete electronic music, nocturnal improvisations, rare 90s New York free jazz compositions, and the Kreuzberg suite -- a distilled culmination of a hundred nights of Berlin mayhem into ecstatic, swinging lyricism -- both solo works and as well as various collaborations with Anthony Braxton, Rashad Becker, Axel Dörner, Matt "MV" Valentine, Tim Barnes, Helen Rush, Olaf Rupp, Clare Cooper, Clayton Thomas, Brandon Evans, Elisabeth King, Steve Heather and many more. Andre Vida is a Hungarian American saxophonist, composer and lyricist living in Berlin. More downtown cheeky grin than mere caveman smile, he is cosmically notorious for continuing the Rahsaan Roland Kirk one-man horn section legacy with hydra-headed style. He has been at the forefront of several major developments in experimental music, being mainly in Anthony Braxtons original Ghost Trance Ensemble, as founding member of New York collective the CTIA, subsequent "freak folk" groups such as The Tower Recordings, and his extensive collaborations with electronic music visionaries Jamie Lidell, Tim Exile and Kevin Blechdom, Elton John, Gonzales, Cecil Taylor, Ornette Coleman, to name but a few, sewing up some heavy threads in downtown sax patchwork refracted through a Borgesian lens.

In 2011, Ben was Composer in Residency at Diapason Space, NYC and at EMS Studios, Stockholm and was awarded a Swedish Arts Committee Travel Grant, ISSUE Project Room Emerging Artists Commission and Museu dArt Contemporani de Barcelona "Composing with Process" Exclusive Works Commission. Esstends-Esstends-Esstends is a collection of spatial compositions in which audio focal points shift between external and internal emanation sources. The intent with this work is to escape the stereo image and create an activated listening space of expanded spatialization. Using just intoned pitch combinations to produce difference tones and harmonic distortions, sound materials are created that emanate from both the playback speakers and inner ear of the listener. By engaging the listeners sense of aural perception and sound localization in relationship to compositional structure, these pieces act to reframe the listening experience and encourage an engagement with, not only the form and aesthetic of the music, but the sonic space a recorded piece of music projects. Higher amplitude will help to reveal. Limited edition of 500 copies, pressed on 140 gram vinyl. Housed in a poly-lined inner sleeve, packaged in a pro-press color jacket which itself is housed in a silk-screened PVC sleeve with artwork by Kathryn Politis & Bill Kouligas." -Pan.

In 2011, Ben was Composer in Residency at Diapason Space, NYC and at EMS Studios, Stockholm and was awarded a Swedish Arts Committee Travel Grant, ISSUE Project Room Emerging Artists Commission and Museu dArt Contemporani de Barcelona "Composing with Process" Exclusive Works Commission. Esstends-Esstends-Esstends is a collection of spatial compositions in which audio focal points shift between external and internal emanation sources. The intent with this work is to escape the stereo image and create an activated listening space of expanded spatialization. Using just intoned pitch combinations to produce difference tones and harmonic distortions, sound materials are created that emanate from both the playback speakers and inner ear of the listener. By engaging the listeners sense of aural perception and sound localization in relationship to compositional structure, these pieces act to reframe the listening experience and encourage an engagement with, not only the form and aesthetic of the music, but the sonic space a recorded piece of music projects. Higher amplitude will help to reveal. Limited edition of 500 copies, pressed on 140 gram vinyl. Housed in a poly-lined inner sleeve, packaged in a pro-press color jacket which itself is housed in a silk-screened PVC sleeve with artwork by Kathryn Politis & Bill Kouligas." - Pan.

Title: Extraction
Format: LP
Label: Future Audio Graphics
Country: USA
Price: $21.00
"Future Audio Graphics is pleased to announce Extraction, the latest from composer and sound artist Ben Vida (Pan, Amish, Shelter Press, et al). Extraction (FAG 001) is a collaboration between Vida, visual artist Meredyth Sparks, and curator/writer Anthony Elms and is the first in a series of collaborative releases for Future Audio Graphics. Continuing Vidas explorations of digital and analog processing systems, Extraction gives particular focus to aural phenomena—engaging electronic, non-representational sounds that appear to cut, move and oscillate on both vertical and horizontal planes. Building on his past work, Vidas two, side-long contributions to Extractioninclude, among other things, a series of what appears to be infinitely long, sweeping tones staggered between short, halting breaks. The audio parallels an artistic practice and method that visual artist Meredyth Sparks has developed over the last five years in her own studio and practice. Vida is a 2013 Artist-in-Residence at Brooklyns Issue Project Room and will be celebrating this release with a performance there on October 17th, 2013. Anthony Elms is currently the Associate Curator at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia, the editor of White Walls and is a curator of the 2014 Whitney Biennial. Meredyth Sparks has exhibited internationally, including recent solo exhibitions at The Arts Club of Chicago and Veneklasen/Werner, Berlin. Her work is currently featured in the group exhibition, Test Pattern at the Whitney Museum of American Art." -Future Audio Graphics.

Title: Working Models
Format: LP
Label: Los Discos Enfantasmes
Country: Canada
Price: $24.00
160g Vinyl, die cut jacket. "Two expansive compositions in compact form evolved from sinuous convolutions 
of electrical currents conducted through an intersection of Ben Vida and Greg Davis.  
Recorded, assembled and mixed in Brooklyn, NY and Burlington VT from 
September to June 2012, with both parties intervening on modular synthesizer 
and computer. 
Working Model 1 is a nodal piece, likened to a string of pearls, with each 
pearl being a chamber within which a sound environment is revealed, developed 
and transitioned to the next node seamlessly through gesture, rupture, and rhythm 
changes. Moments of stochastic synthesis, chromatic interrupters firing, globular 
pulsations, short lived melodic lines, and rhythmic arrangements keep the piece 
moving and the ear engaged at the micro level. The flip side, Working Models 2 
has more of an unearthly feel to it with interwoven frequencies giving way to 
percussive structures, granular textures, and layers of synthesis that propel the 
piece through its different movements.  
Feast your ears and eyes on excerpts from the LP, with visuals by Charles Barabé." - Los Discos Enfantasmes.

Title: Aggregatepulseripper (Damaged IIII)
Format: LP
Label: Amish
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Amish is pleased to announce the third iteration in its Required Wreckers Series, a split LP featuring new and exclusive work from Ben Vida and Keith Fullerton Whitman. Having collaborated over the last decade as a trio with Greg Davis, this release features new solo-work by two of Americas most important emerging sound artists. The first side of this release debuts a new composition from Ben Vida. In keeping with his recent patchwork-based compositions, Aggregatepulseripper (Damaged IIII) continues to explore Vidas interest in both digital and analog control sources, a compositional process that refuses to fetishize one technology over another and, more interestingly, appears to displace the musicians hand from the compositional process. The flipside of this LP features Keith Fullerton Whitmans third in a series of splits (previous releases have included No Fun Productions b/w Carlos Giffoni and Amethyst Sunsets b/w with Mike Shiflet) documenting a particularly productive period in his creative output--a series of synth concerts from 2007 and 2008. Recorded on January 14, 2008 at PAs Lounge in Somerville, MA, this piece documents the fourth in Whitmans solo synthesizer sets. Throughout the recording one can discern talking from the audience and ambient room--tone noise, as well as sound coming from different sources spread throughout the room--a small battery powered speaker on stage right, a giant Barbetta on stage left. Each speaker was fed into a different patch irrespective of its frequency response. Whitman uses a hybrid system of digital and analog sound sources that, with the exception of a single 4096 bd delay, is presented here without treatment, overdub, or sequencing of any sort." -Amish

Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Feeding Tube
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"The debut LP by Maines Video Nasties is actually a compilation of the first four cassette singles/EPs theyve released over the past three years. The band exists as a part-time project involving several key members of the Strange Maine scene. And when you listen to it, youll be less-than-surprised to learn that some of the Nasties are also involved with Portlands totally whacked Suicide tribute band, AM Frank. The music on the album, however, is a generation removed from Suicides protean aggro synth grunge. For much of this set, the models from which the Nasties seem to draw are devolved from the British experimental synth/punk scene of the last 70s (early Human League, Tubeway Army, et al.), with a soupçon of Chrome and Suicide stirred into the mix, all of it leading (at least archeologically) towards bold splooge recalling Foetus, and electronic-smudge confusion worthy of Wolf Eyes. As befits their name, which refers to a British practice of banning gore films (thanks again, Mary Whitehouse!), the lyrics refer to films almost as much as the Misfits once did. And they name-check the same sorts of films too. But the Video Nasties sound is way different from the dramatic punk howleen of Lodis favorite sons, and evolves as the album unwinds. The songs are programmed stylistically rather than chronologically, and the sonics descends from a bright almost-poppoid place into somewhere much darker, danker and coarse. Like a horrible trip to the basement with some creepy old dude you really hate. What could be better?" - Byron Coley, 2016. Edition of 300.

Format: LP
Label: Megaphone/Knock Em Dead
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"160-gram LP. Gatefold sleeve with new artwork. The elusive allure of Vidéo-Aventures is challenging to capture, and Megaphone/Knockem Deads reissue of their second LP, Camera (In Focus) Camera (Al Riparo) (1984, Tago Mago, France), reveals an album with a conviction in paradox that serves only to magnify their mystery. Plunging feverishly where their debut (Musique pour Garçons et Filles, 1979, Recommended Records) traipsed and alighted with informed whimsy, Camera (In Focus) Camera (Al Riparo) retains the duo of Dominique Grimaud and Monique Alba, abetted strikingly (and, often, surprisingly) by Jac Berrocal, Guigou Chenevier (Etron Fou Leloublan), Sophie Jausserand, Gilbert Artman (Lard Free, Catalogue, Urban Sax), Cyril Lefebvre, and Daniel Deshays. The result is a tour de force in several significant respects. Camera (In Focus) Camera (Al Riparo) is not obviously similar to its beguiling predecessor -- indeed, there are moments in which it calls for the listeners intrepidity and insight -- but it is at least as captivating. Venturing further from traditional instrumentation, Vidéo-Aventures employ elements of musique concrète, disjointed and enfeebled speech, accelerated percussion, and synthesized physical function (pulse, breathing, etc.). The chronicle of a singular process from a single perspective, it narrates the deterioration of a mind in the aftermath of duress. That mind is the narrator, but only from a sensory standpoint, as if the listener were seated inside the narrators skull. What the listener hears is what the subject hears -- complete with pounding heartbeat, gasping breath, blood rushing through the head -- amounting to a devastating treatise against ends justifying means. Regardless of interpretation, Camera (In Focus) Camera (Al Riparo) succeeds on its own extensive musical merits. This record is borne of the dissonant, microscopic interim between impulse and accordant action. The change that occurs within that tiny lag is seldom heralded, but on Camera (In Focus) Camera (Al Riparo), Vidéo-Aventures inhabits it, isolating the transformation/mutation that crystallizes in flashes both smaller than fully formed thoughts and containing the universe of perception. Within each track, Vidéo-Aventures present an evolution, but not a hierarchical one -- in the specificity of their arrangements, they convey an instability that is unnervingly true to the variability and unpredictability of memory. This quality, which had punctuated their debut album, becomes here a harrowing pillar that unites every track within a claustrophobic continuum of emotions. The result is an opus that contains seamless and varied musical brilliance, conceptual continuity, and indomitably humane integrity." - Megaphone/Knock Em Dead.

With washes of guitar and synthesizer, subdued vocals, field recordings and minimal noise, Villages devises a beautifully pastoral narrative teeming with honest emotion.

CRETINNVILL is Nobu/Wataru Kasahara (Embudagonn 108, etc); Vince & Nov is a collaboration with Vince Brusio.

"Nobu Kasahara is perhaps better known as Wataru Kasahara, a visual artist whose point of organ, scatological and obsessive work inhabits the same putrefaction as Dernier Cri or the material art of Andy Bolus. As Embudagonn 108, Kasahara has expelled a curious catalog of sounds - shortwave, room event, organ malfunction.... Embudagonn 108 confuses, infuriates and incites the listener towards action.... Kasaharas work features the same arch nihilism on display in Violent Onsen Geisha...." - Vitrine.

"I listen to various music. I am not so interested in a lot of stylized drone music and the harsh noises. These sounds are agreeable. I keep away ease. I want to stimulate the sense by uncomfortable. I am not basically interested in drone music and the harsh noises though there is exceptions such as Hermann Nitsch and I.Dumitrescu. These are music that pierces, is moved to karma, and purifies it and is repeated. However, I like music that the uniqueness of the brain of the person who makes the sound can be looked and know. They think that they fight unconsciously against karma by the peculiar brain. Selten Gehorte Musik. Caroliner Rainbow. Psycodrama. Suckdog. Costes. Sarenco. Wolf Vostell. Wild Man Fischer. J.S. Bach. Colette Magny. The Ritualistic School Of Errors. Hovlakin. Zurich 1916. They are making the work that demonstrates the primitive magic of music though music is dismantled. And, they are a one and only people not to flatter nobody. Their music gives me courage." - Wataru Kasahara (VICE interview).

Price: $29.00
“Matthew P. Hopkins and Chris Schueler were Vincent Over the Sink and 22 Coloured Bull-Terriers was their 23-track opus. "Think about music, but then dig a hole." Hidden beneath an astoundingly diverse range of experimental and DIY output by Hopkins (The Bowles, Naked on the Vague; Penultimate Press, Vittelli, Kye) and Schueler (The Bowles; Kye) is the disorienting, psychedelic mess of Vincent Over the Sinks 22 Coloured Bull-Terriers. Written between 2005 and 2007 in Australias Blue Mountains, Sydney, and Melbourne, its limited 2008 cassette release was lauded by those who heard it and lusted after by those who hadnt. This 2015 reissue, remastered by Mikey Young, comes in the form of a double-vinyl gatefold designed by Hopkins. Ten years on from its conception, 22 Coloured Bull-Terriers is still a rollicking, psychotic, and kaleidoscopic dream that demands reinterpretation on every listen. Made of 23 dazzling lo-fi vignettes and songs that range from tender spoken and vocal excursions ("Number Theory") to acoustic and instrumental sketches ("Santa Maria"), lullaby duets ("Blackbird" and "Rainblame"), and devastating, fleshed-out, no-new-wave songwriting ("Mice in the Ocean" and "Horses Screaming"). Schueler and Hopkins formed Vincent Over the Sink in 2001 and offered little in the way of heralded releases. The project lurked in the shadows of the Australian east coast scene. Even the 2008 cassette release of 22 Coloured Bull-Terriers saw no Vincent Over the Sink shows and only one (excellent) street press interview given by Schueler. Their most penetrating music came on a 7" on Graham Lambkins Kye label in 2011, sounding like a terrifying washed-out DIY chamber music record. Sadly, it was released posthumously in memory of Schueler who had passed away a year earlier. What little material had arisen from this long partnership would be all the world was left with. These 23 tracks capture one part of the southern zeitgeist in the same way Flying Nuns early archive did. Vincent Over the Sink were two mates who could have been trying to record a Mick Hobbs record in their garage. The album mirrors The Shadow Rings Put the Music in Its Coffin. Its a work full of the forlorn, dark humor in Pink Reasons alienating lyrics. 22 Coloured Bull-Terriers is all of this but none of it and Another Dark Age is extremely proud to present it with all the fanfare it deserves.” - Another Dark Age.

The stylistic range of the Institutes artistic output becomes even broader when the work of other staff and frequent guests is taken into account, for example the compositions based on field recordings and audio-visual projects by Frits Weiland, the radiophonic works and pieces for tape and instruments by Luctor Ponse, the cybernetic tape compositions by Roland Kayn, or the experiments with computer graphics by Peter Struycken, to name just a few. And then there was Jaap Vink. Jaap Vink studied engineering at first, but then became interested in electronic music. He attended courses in electroacoustics at Delft University of Technology and installed a pedagogical studio for electronic music in 1961 at the Gaudeamus Foundation . . . Jaap Vink always tried to break out of the periodicity of the sounds so abundantly available in the electronic music studio. Although his music was entirely produced with purely electronic sound material, its textures resemble the richness of orchestral sounds, or large natural sound-complexes, as a result of recursive processes. The density of this sound material increases and decreases by careful control of feedback networks with configurations of analog tape recorders (delay lines), filters, and modulators. It should come as no surprise that his work is being rediscovered at a time when a new generation of musicians has conquered the stage with modular synthesizer setups and no-input mixers, in which feedback of audio and control signals plays an important role. And although Jaap Vinks music wasnt performed live but produced and recorded on magnetic tape in the studio, it is exactly the human interaction with feedback processes that connects his work with the current generation of live electronic music performers. To some extent Jaap Vinks pieces are indeed recorded live improvisations, and extending his patches and rehearsing with them was an ongoing process. . . . The selection presented here gives an overview of Jaap Vinks works made in Utrecht, ranging from his first composition Screen up to Tide 85." - Kees Tazelaar.

"Edition of 266 copies on vinyl with screenprinted covers and an insert. From the liner notes: "...these new songs werent found in one place, they didnt just flow from some horn of plenty, they were slowly plucked like flowers along the road-side, dried in the sun and put next to each other in an album that grew in the months that followed that first session, while winter turned into spring, and spring into summer. ... some turned out to be small gems of a song that belie their impromptu origins, others wear their spontaneous creation proudly like a crown of fallen petals. Some are kalimba and banjo back of the woods folk music, others two chord pop songs with pump organ or plucked cello. ... and Martinas sad, gentle, shimmering vocals fill the room from end to end, every little nook and cranny, with a language of vaguely familiar words, whose sense is obscured like something seen through an old broken and dusty window-pane. This new record is another spell-book of the fey and brittle magic that Vinter cast upon the listener..." Vinter collaborated with Lau Nau on last years Maailmas LP released on Tjarnen .

"With over 800 artists records and other sound supports the exhibition Vinyl �?? Records and Covers by Artists shows the dual facets �?? visual and sound �?? of a unique dimension in art. All the major 20th-century art tendencies are represented, ranging from early avant-garde movements through the high point of sound art in the 60s and 70s, to present approaches. The entity of record as sound support and cover as visual support has enabled artists to explore a new, rich field of creation. Transcending the limits imposed by traditional art forms and having had no conventional musical education, visual artists took advantage of their freedom to discover the creative possibilities offered by music, sound and noise or by language, voice and instruments and their manipulation. Based on the Collection Guy Schraenen, an unusually complete anthology of artists record works, the exhibition presents an international overview: from Dada to Fluxus, from the Futurists to "Einstürzende Neubauten", from Eric Satie to John Cage, from Laurie Anderson to Laibach, from Beuys to Warhol. Artistic verbo-vocal experiments are shown in their full diversity �?? for example in the works of François Dufrêne, Sten Hanson, Ernst Jandl or the Beat-Generation. For the pop and rock world, visual artists have created impressive works of art in the 31 x 31 cm sleeve format, among them Roy Adzak, Roy Lichtenstein, Raymond Pettibon, Robert Rauschenberg, Andy Warhol or Richard Hamilton, whose "White-Album"-Cover for the Beatles became a classic work of this genre. Photographers like Robert Frank or Robert Mapplethorpe also appear in the visual word of the covers. The band "Kraftwerk" shows on the inside cover of their album from 1970 a full page photo by Bernd & Hilla Becher. Vinyl is an exhibition for the eye and the ear: graphic works, multiples and objects from the field of sound art complement the visual world represented by the covers. In terms of acoustic presentation, around 300 records are at the visitors disposal, including many compilations. The 250-page catalogue for this exhibition contains a fully illustrated discography. Artists in the exhibition: Roy Adzak, Pierre Alechinsky, Laurie Anderson, Karel Appel, John Baldessari, Robert Barry, Harry Bertoia, Peter Blake, Ulises Carrión, Henri Chopin, Salvador Dali, Hanne Darboven, Peter Downsbrough, Jean Dubuffet, François Dufrêne, Einstürzende Neubauten, Brian Eno, Harald Falkenhagen, Peter Gordon, Franz Graf, Brion Gysin, Sten Hanson, Keith Haring, Bernard Heidsieck, Isidore Isou, Ernst Jandl, Joe Jones, Marcello Jori, Rolf Julius, Thomas Kapielski, Yves Klein, Les Levine, Sol LeWitt, Roy Lichtenstein, Arrigo Lora-Totino, Christian Marclay, Cildo Meirelles, Joan Miró, Meredith Monk, Otto Muehl, Carsten Nicolai, Hermann Nitsch, Albert Oehlen, Roman Opalka, Raymond Pettibon, Richard Prince, Vladan Radovanovic, Gerhard Richter, Dieter Roth, Gerhard Rühm, Reiner Ruthenbeck, Erik Satie, Tomas Schmit, Kurt Schwitters, Michael Snow, Die Tödliche Doris, Ben Vautier, Wolf Vostell, Andy Warhol, Lawrence Weiner, La Monte Young and ca. 1.000 more" - Neues Museum Weserburg Bremen.

Price: $20.00
"This is the debut release on Born Bad Records from Belgian synth wave act Violence Conjugale. Hans and André met early in highschool. Their mutual love for Bowie and Kenneth Anger pushed them to flunk school and smoke in their tiny school movie room. There they dream of an ideal future, made of space travel and industrial music. Feeling the pressure from this private institution, they eventually decide to go to Berlin and see what taste has decadence there. They meet Marianne Katza, an eccentric woman who tells them to come to an artist squat in the Mitte district. Just like Warhols Factory, the place is an indistinct magma of ideas, music and drugs. Here, as André begins to fiddle with a Korg MS20 synth and dreams of exquisite performances, in another room, Hans tries to write his wildest nightmares to exorcise them. Marianne decides to introduce the future band to one of her lovers: Marc Berron, a young, arrogant and rich kid blessed with a perfect ear. He helps them to slow down their drug issues and take a new direction: to play a cold and personal music in pop format but with a feeling of urgency which characterized young Berliners. So, he kidnaps them in his own studio for several weeks to experiment, eventually finding Violence Conjugales definitive sound: 80s minimal synth-wave -- the frostiest ever." -Born Bad.

Basically, Violent Onsen Geisha is the work of Masaya Nakahara although for years he created a history of VOG as a group whose members mysteriously died one by one (Spinal Tap drummer style, if you prefer). I suppose this provides the key to his work as Violent Onsen Geisha...sly and ironic, bizarre and sarcastic...creating a history which cloaks him in mystery so that he can enjoy himself in relative anonymity. Basically what you get is kitsch soundtracks and hippetty hop and blasts of disco and found sound and field recordings and spoken word and noise." -Bloody Butterfly.

"Heres the last gasp effort from VIOLENT STUDENTS, a defunct Philadelphia-based black hole Punk / HC outfit whose wasters have been and continue to be involved in some arguably more-refined and mature projects. This self-medicated, throbbing set was recorded live at their final gig inside a South Philadelphia firetrap before a crowd of black-clad pencil-necked geeks that shrank with each passing tic of the metronome. Most of those intensely posed youngsters left too early to witness an exploratory stomp through “Seekers of the Truth”. The Students here are joined by BLUES CONTROLs Lea Cho, who was a last second replacement on guitar when Jim Winters (of Earth Crisis, Conviction, etc) proved tardy. The flip side is A Handy Magician, originally infamously issued as a cassette in 2004 or so. And as a more articulate scribe has famously noted, if you remember a Violent Students gig, then you werent there." - Richie.

"After releasing Illusion of Maintenance Man in 1971, Virgin Insanity evidently went on to record 2 more albums that never saw the light of day: Toad Frog & Fish Friends, also from 1971, and The Odometer Suite from 1973. This Japanese-only CD conveniently compiles the 2 together and throws on 2 bonus tracks of new 2005 recordings by the currently revitalized group. In a similar style to Illusion, but perhaps more freaked out, this is beautifully shambolic folk-rock from the edge of time, with parts of Toad Frog coming across like Texas answer to the Godz. The Odometer Suite is a lot more 73 than 71 (guess that "makes sense") - the naivete is a little wobbly for todays sophisticates.

Artist: VISIONIST
Title: Safe
Format: LP
Label: Pan
Country: UK
Price: $27.00
"140-gram LP version. Having partnered with Bill Kouligas in 2015 to relaunch his Lost Codes imprint as Codes, Visionist takes a defining step forward with the release of his debut album, Safe. The South London artist born Louis Carnell broke during a period of experimentation in UK music when, with the disintegration of the dubstep scene, emerging producers began looking to juke and Chicago house for inspiration. A pair of EPs on Lit City Trax (and a collaboration with Fatima Al Qadiri) in 2013 and 14 introduced Visionists minimalist take on fractured R&B and liquid grime, establishing him as a leading voice in new wave UK soundsystem culture. On Safe, Visionist sculpts and extends that signature into new terrain and makes his most personal statement yet. Distilling his influences down to a sparse palette of manipulated folk, pop, and R&B a cappellas; icy synths; and metallic drum samples, he plays off ever-present anxiety and his own battle not to let it overwhelm him. "Comfort, protection, salvation -- this is what we search for," he says. "We are taught that a life of no worries is better for us, and therefore we try to create one that is Safe." But while safe as a musical concept implies conformity, Safe as an artistic statement is anything but. At a moment when the UK scene, once known for innovation, has settled into rehashing old tropes, Visionist continues to propel his sound into more experimental territory. The album traces the arc of an anxiety attack, from its onset through to recovery. Following the stately discord of brief opener "You Stayed," the grimy, ballistic assault of "Victim" sends its targets diving into mirrored corners. "Ive Said" is a brutal, almost militant advance, its sound cutting in and out as though transmitted via shortwave radio. "Too Careful to Care" trades in skittering paranoia, with the soporific "Sleep Luxury" closing out affairs. Since 2012, Visionist has toured extensively throughout Europe, The Unites States, and Asia, appearing at industry standard clubs and festivals like Fabric, Berghain, Sonar, and Unsound as well as various underground venues. He has scored music for Kenzo, Liam Hodges, and Roxanne Farahmand in the world of fashion, and remixed Kelis, Ghostpoet, and Glasser. In 2014, he supported FKA Twigs on her first-ever UK tour.

One of those rare vortexes of creation existing totally apart from all hype, pressure or pretense; in other words, timeless. Always balanced on that fine and beautiful line between cosmic joke & aching depth. A simple & unadorned unfurling of strummed & fingered instruments, heartaching female vocals, woodland creatures, earthy male vocals, contrasting half-written & totally spontaneous songs, twisting lyrics, haunted melancholy, lysergic joy, and a heavy dose of spooked New England lore. In a way, the recording scene itself is an almost perfect parallel to the sounds & vibes captured here: three shadowy figures laugh & sing around a dim campfire. No ones slept in days. Theyre nestled amidst ancient stone buildings, creeping foliage and mounds of exotic flowers. The sun is setting over the mountains. But its all frozen in time. The clouds arent moving. And that campfire, its a microphone, isnt it? And all those flowers: plastic. The stone: paint. Is it all fake? Well, it is an ancient stone church. And those three really are making some very sweet sounds. In fact, its almost hyper-real. Almost impossibly so... is that reel-to-reel rolling?

"Dark Entries and Minimal Maximal have joined forces to re-issue the complete discography of Vita Noctis on a double vinyl LP. Previously these songs were restricted to limited self-released cassettes, compilation appearances and a sole 12″ Mini LP. Beware, this is abrasive, primal music made by irritated teenagers full of angst! Vita Noctis were a trio from Vilvoorde, Belgium in the Flemish Region. Inspired by the post-punk movement twin brothers Kris and Jos Kips convinced Kris girlfriend Martine Genijn to start a band in 1981.They recorded their earliest songs onto a 2-track tape deck in their bedroom studio using second-hand equipment they could afford: Roland TR-808 drum machine, Casiotone MT-31, Ibanez bass guitar and a Korg MS-20 keyboard. Their first album “In The Face Of…DEATH” was self-released on cassette only in 1984 by the “Much Money Good Boy, No Money Good-Bye” cassette in 1985. In February 1986 the band recorded five songs at Studio Care in Gent, Belgium later released as the self-titled 12″ Mini-LP on Mad In Belgium Records. Their final recording session was November 1986 returning to the bands bedroom studio, resulting in the song “She Likes Me” which appeared on the “Climax Productions Presents” LP. “More “arthouse” than “goth”, Vita Noctis blend the sneering attitude of punk with the spartan structures of minimal electronics. The band had more in common with the early electronic Sheffield scene of Cabaret Voltaire, Vice Versa or early Human League than their Belgian contemporaries. Urgent vocals go from a whisper to a scream in seconds and sound restless, bored and irritated all at once. Fuzzy guitar, simple baselines and crude electronics take turns accompanying the dynamic vocal stylings. While lyrics tackle weighty topics like death and religion, the landscape they paint is as playfully bratty as it is grim. All songs have been remastered from the restored 1/4″ reel to reel tapes by George Horn at Fantasy Studios, Berkeley California. Each double LP comes in a deluxe gatefold jacket with cover art by original designer Stephan Barbery and never before seen band photos and lyrics for each song. Spanning three years and four recording sessions “Against The Rule” is the soundtrack to Armageddon, very fitting in the contemporary climate of dissatisfaction and social upheaval." -Dark Entries.

Its like when we stop bothering to play the noise just plays itself. I think it probably plays itself better than we do. The quartet consists of Kulo Murugaiyan, Hassni Malik, Stephen Drennan and myself." - Alasdair Willis. Editon of 99.

"Perhaps the only double album to be released that contains two sides instead of four. A big enough surprise three years ago when after a ten year gap to follow up the legendary and now unavailable 4LP box debut we actually got the follow up of 2LP Gatefold Set, and then with incredible speed came a seven inch on Raft Recordings, just when you might be shocked into thinking the B12 was threatening to become prolific (a double 10" has been slated for release by Italian label Elica for a couple of years also) the theory is confirmed by this new double album which almost literally turned up out of the blue with no warning or pre-information. A record of two halves, in two versions...the insert gives you track details and input information for Sides One and Two, and indeed there are two versions of this album. The same tracks, but completely reworked. For once this ploy doesnt seem lazy or an unneeded addition, its all part of the process. The music itself is a real breath of fresh air, taking (mainly) saxophone, organ, drums, violin, voice and unidentifiable noises into the sample realm and playing havoc with the integrity of those precious recordings. not a jazz or an improv record, nor electronic or concrete, but they all play their part in the B12s unknown plans. A genuine experimental album from a genuinely independent artist, not following any particular genre or approach. A self-produced item on the B12s Little Gems label, Limited to 300 copies in totality... comes with full colour gatefold and small plastic folder of picture cards." - Little Gems.

"The Vitamin B12 is Alasdair Willis. Reclusive Brighton based author of contemporary surrealist artifacts. This single was commissioned for Rafts instrumental series, specifically with the 7? medium in mind. The two pieces are vastly contrasting and perhaps some small clue to their aesthetic may be placed within the titles themselves... 68 x 32 is a Musique Concrete assemblage so therefore must be art, and as such it can only be judged by posterity, no one yet can really say what the record is like. System Six is a melodic composition for tuned percussion sounds, with a surprisingly liberating, yet oddly mind-bending ascending motif, which calls on the infinite resources that can be gleaned from careful application of the laws of repetition, that can be gleaned from careful application of the laws of repetition laws of repetition of repetition.

Title: Modes Reels Collectifs
Format: LP
Label: Rotorelief
Country: France
Price: $23.00
Limited numbered edition of 575. "Modes réels collectifs is the first work published in 1981 under the Vivenza banner, following Jean-Marc Vivenzas time with the bands Glace (1976) and Mécanique Populaire (1979). It represents a genuine manifesto that would become emblematic of all Vivenzas subsequent work. By suggesting, from philosophical and sonic points of view, an idea of opening to the reality directly inspired from Futurist theories, Vivenza was presenting what he had brought from his relationship with machines and sounds of factories, to evoke the brutal concrete of the heavy industry world. This album shows this concern about participating in the energy of the future, with the reciprocal mediation linked to the productive activity of the world. As Vivenza puts it, "By working and through the strengths of work, in the sonorous magma of the industrial society, at the heart of the forges and weirs, of the rolling mills and power stations, reactors and artificial intelligence, nature reveals its dynamic characteristic. The power of machines, and of industry in general, are the truth of the world." Thus, industry and technique are what we could call the principle of any reality, because, like the Futurists said, "The machine is indeed the richest symbol of the mysterious human creator strength" (Enrico Prampolini, Ivo Pannaggi, and Vinicio Paladini, Manifesto of Mechanical Art, 1923)." - Rotorelief.

Format: LP
Label: Rotorelief
Country: France
Price: $22.00
“Red LP version. Originally released in 1985. First reissued by Rotorelief in 2009. Features reworked visuals. Vivenza presents sounds -- noises -- in their rawest and most genuine aspect; sounds are machines and machines are sounds. Thus Vivenza captures the essence of factories with a strong sense of austerity and radicalism, evoking the thick smoke and intense darkness of industrial landscapes. Réalités servomécaniques directly refers to the triumph but also decline of heavy industries in the 80s. The cogwheels, forges, and machines smash us in the face in a radically powerfully vivid way, plunging us into the midst of the machines -- and into the machines themselves -- with a surprising and striking strength. Since his first works in the mid-70s, Jean-Marc Vivenza has theoretically and politically linked himself with the Italian Futurists and Russian Constructivists, and qualifies his music as "bruitist futurist" rather than "industrial." He enacts the re-appropriation of noise as a formal plastic aid. He explores the field of perspectives that the plastic-acoustic material offers and works on a concept that he calls "the objective materiality of noise," basing his work on the Futurist thesis of Luigi Russolo proclaimed in his 1913 manifesto The Art of Noises. He is then the first, between 1976 (with the band Glace) and 1979, to build a bridge between the thesis of Luigi Russolo and our time. The originality of Vivenza lies in his use of sonorous industrial material in the literal sense of the word (machines, workers in action, factories). Noises and machines recorded and mixed by Vivenza in Grenoble, France, 1984. Mastered by Hervé de Keroullas, 2009. Graphic Design by Peter Mendelsund, 2009.

Originally released in 1983. "Bruitism is the representation of a living, biological body, not unrelated but on the contrary intimate to the substance. The nature/technique gap is totally, in The Art of Noises, the most accomplished form of a reconciliation with industrial mechanization. By highlighting the autonomy of the dialectical movement in its inaugural tension, bruitism reestablishes this relationship with the pure objectivity of the substance, which is the cornerstone of the program of futurism and remains more than ever valid for the future of all futures. The sonorous world, the noises of life, are not just a simple residual environment but the material of a new art, The Art of Noises! Luigi Russolo declares: In a few years the engines of our industrial cities can all be skilfully sounded so as to make from each factory an exhilarating orchestra of noises. The futurist objective is a will for a back to original forces, it finds in bruitism the most intense form of a participation to the universal energy of the being of the world" --extract from Lart des bruits futuristes (The Art of Futurist Noises), Vivenza, 1982.

Title: Veriti Plastici
Format: LP
Label: Rotorelief
Country: France
Price: $22.00
Black LP version in deluxe heavy-duty sleeve. Limited numbered edition of 333. "Veriti Plastici, the third part of the first works of Vivenza, was recorded and completed in 1983 and represents a fundamental step in the definitive formalization of the bruitist perspective. Made of objective industrial atmospheres, this recording is the bridge between the pure experimental approach and the rigorous structuring of the works that would follow (including Fondements Bruitistes in 1984 (ROTOR 033CD/AB-LP/ABRED/DC-LP/DCRED) and Réalités Servomécaniques in 1985 (ROTOR 014CD/RED-LP)). The release of Veriti Plastici was accompanied by a text, Le Programme Futuriste De Retour A La Realite Materielle, which describes Vivenzas theory of bruitism as follows: "The futurist objective, which is a will to a return to the original forces, will thus find in bruitism the most intense form of a participation to the universal energy of the being of the world. Bruitism is a radical attempt of the carrying out of the futurist project in its will of participative communion to the dialective future sensed in the mechanical power of industry. The attentive examination of bruitism on each machine generating a noise-sound, reveals an organic vision of the industrial and urban network: the large and fabulous breathing of a sleeping town is so strange, wonderful, fascinating. . . . a breathing only interrupted now and then by the whistle of a train; a breathing which is the result of all different industries (electric power stations, gas factories, train stations, printings, etc.) continuing their activities in the quiet nightlife [Luigi Russolo, The Art of Noises, 1913]. The transfigurative wave of the dialectic movement of the Vortex, the point of the highest energy [Ezra Pound, Blast, 1914], expresses the vertiginous transparency of the abyss; only the knowledge-contact through the exercise of the decentering of the subject can offer the possibility of a uniting participation to this abysmal reality."

"Brooklyns VIVIAN GIRLS are back with Everything Goes Wrong, released almost exactly a year after In The Reds reissue of their self-titled debut. The band have taken their time with this new album and recorded it in six days-rather than the three their debut took-though many of the songs were still recorded in single takes. Over the last year, the Vivian Girls have toured the US and Europe extensively and received a considerable amount of national and international press. Everything Goes Wrong is a slightly moodier album than its predecessor, with a couple tracks clocking in at almost twice the length of anything on their debut. That said, the influences remain the same; Ramones, 60s girl groups, surf, indie pop, etc., etc. This is immediately classic stuff. Watch for constant touring in late 09 and 10.

"Caitlin Cook and Calder Martin, formerly vocalist/players in EXCEPTER, resurface as a rock duo with Martin weaving holographic guitar riffs around Cooks wails and gloomy poems. The pair spent two years living in the skylight studio of the historic Matthew Brady Daguerreotype Building at 359 Broadway NYC, recording in the same vaulted rooms where Abe Lincoln, Felicita Vestvali, Edgar Allan Poe, Frederick Douglas, and Sitting Bull voluntarily screwed their heads into iron stabilizers in order to be photographed. The resulting album conveys a falsely two-sided pattern of epic American triumph, contemplative groovyness, and crumbling disaster in the guise of hyperactive fun. Cameo drum appearances blast through at key moments, courtesy of Spencer Herbst (Matta Llama), Nathan Corbin (Excepter), and the inimitable Fiz.

"Ton Vlasman recorded this amazing piece of acid Euro folk back in 1970, making it sound like an outer space freaked out Bob Dylan with the help of Frans Schoonen (organ, flute and harmonica) and Leo van Vugt (chincha tumba and tambourine). The seven original compositions are stunning, drug inspired psychedelic pieces of acid folk that mix Dylan with Indian ragas and even add some Pink Floyd overtones, yet from an acoustic rather than electric point of view. And the album contains also a very cool version of The Velvet Undergrounds Pale Blue Eyes. If you ever wondered how Dylan would have sounded covering The V.U., heres a close example! The album, originally released on the small Flame label from Amsterdam, sold poorly back in the seventies -- thus becoming a collectors piece when it was rediscovered in the eighties. Since then it has been gathering new fans that pay small fortunes for a copy, no reissue has been available until now that Wah Wah offers 500 copies in a lavish edition that will probably sell out soon, so grab your copy before its too late! The beautiful cover art and full color poster insert with the lyrics are the work of Leendert Le Duc, and both are here faithfully reproduced as they deserve. The Wah Wah reissue also features an extra insert with a text by reputed Dutch collector Jean Jöbses and a couple of rare unseen period photos courtesy of the Frans Schoonen and Leo van Vugt archives. The album has been carefully remastered by sound wizard Denis Blackham @ Skye Mastering, making these songs sound like never before. Remember, 500 copies only -- dont miss it!" -Wah Wah

Title: Cuadro Sinoptico
Format: 12"
Label: Dark Entries
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Dark Entries is thrilled to present a 4-song compilation from one of the finest groups of the Spanish New Wave/Tecno-Pop scene of the 1980s. Vocoder were a quartet from Zaragoza, Spain formed in 1981. Keyboardists Antonio Laval and Alfonso Olarte attended the same university and fell in love with a Korg MS-20 synthesizer in a music shop window. They met keyboardist Antonio Tenas at a local radio station and were later joined by vocalist Pilar Pellicer. They recorded several demos with synthesizers, sequencers and drum machines, creating a soundtrack for the clubs and dance floors. Inspired by the “Movida Madrileña,” they sent demos to various record companies. The band signed a deal with Aviador Dro’s sublabel Neón Danza and released two EPs, “What Happens Now”/”Radio” in 1984, “Mindanao”/”Amor de Robot” in 1985 and a self-titled LP which was produced by Michel Huygen (Neuronium) in 1987. Vocoder also appeared on the TV program “La Bola De Cristal”, presenting their music video for “What Happens Now”, in which the band danced in a supermarket with a shopping cart full of synthesizers. The group mutually disbanded in 1988 and continued to organize concerts for other groups touring in Spain.
“Cuadro Sinóptico” compiles both 2-song 12″ maxi singles as one 4-song EP. All four songs were recorded during 1984-85 at Doublewtronics Studios in Madrid, Spain, using the most advanced and sophisticated techniques of time in digital recording and Direct Metal Mastering (DMM). The band utilized many professional synthesizers of the time: Roland Juno 60, Prophet V, Korg Poly 61, Yamaha DX-7, Roland TR-909 and the Linn Drum, which was used by most Italo Disco artists. These songs were recorded in the highest fidelity with disc jockeys in mind. Genuinely catchy, Vocoder combined soaring melodies with cybernetic coldness. A futuristic sound for the modern age topped with Pilar’s charismatic vocals. Lyrically they address robotic love, disco dancing, and the tropical island of Mindanao, and sing in Spanish, English and French.
All songs on “Cuadro Sinóptico” have been remastered from the original reel to reel master tapes for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, CA. Each LP includes a double-sided insert with photos, lyrics and liner notes by Flemming Dalum, a Danish DJ who introduced much of the world to Vocoder in 2008 on his “French Spanish Italo Connection” mix. Vocoder want you to barricade yourself in the discotheques and dance away the depression." -Dark Entries.

Title: The Tenth Corner
Format: CD
Label: Strange Attractors Audio House
Country: USA
Price: $13.50
"Vocokesh seriously tweak the standard rock trio infrastructure by processing the guitars beyond earthly recognition and inoculating the cacophony with an arsenal of vintage analog electronics. With seven songs totalling over an hour of music, The Tenth Corner explores some seriously alien terrain with an elusively mechanical, intensely lysergic sound. Unfurling like mellow smoke from some alien opium den, the title track introduces the sonic soiree in a pleasant mood, as distant acoustic plucking and electronic oscillations provide a pillowing backdrop for some elegant electric guitar flourishes. Imbued with an intense array of moods and textures, The Tenth Corner is a tremendously cinematic listening experience -- in fact, three tunes are envisioned as supplemental/alternate soundtracks to some particularly vivid cult films. Composition and improvisation coalesce into a sound that draws from the early flights of 70s German avant rock (Agitation Free, Cosmic Jokers, Ash Ra Tempel) and synth-powered cosmic (Cluster, Tangerine Dream, Popol Vuh) if it were created in the embryonic electronic music labs of the 60s and 70s. Transcendent, gritty, hallucinatory -- The Tenth Corner is undoubtedly Vocokeshs finest hour." - Strange Attractors Audio House.

Title: Through the Smoke
Format: CD
Label: Strange Attractors Audio House
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"With Through the Smoke, Vocokesh expand upon the ominous acid soundtracks that saturated The Tenth Corner. Combining the swirling guitars of Pink Floyd and the Kraut-inspired mayhem of Ash Ra Tempel with the early analog electronic surrealism of Tangerine Dream and Popol Vuh, Vocokesh continue to place pressure on the boundaries of sound, incessantly exploring cryptic soundscapes via their oftentimes unsettling brand of electronics-drenched, drugged-out rock.  On this outing, however, the soundscapes come mixed with some more prog-like elements and even a touch of  psych/garage riffing. Vibe #6 stirs slowly with heady bass pulses, swooshing synths and subtle guitar lines, but quickly stumbles headlong into all-out mania as Franeckis guitar pyrotechnics spiral forth like alien tendrils, reverberations of a gong tolling the first wave of what is to be a long, dark trip.  But a sidestep into garage-psych of Vocokesh Theme Song provides a nice respite, as the band exhumes the spirit of Electric Prunes-like fuzz and vibrato. The sojourn is short-lived, as Vocokesh continue on, taking the listener on their impressionistic journey woven from total sound exploration. Vocokesh manage to skillfully hybridize the best of the early 70s avant-garde into their cinematic improvisations. Florian Fricke, David Gilmour, Manuel Göttsching, Edgar Froese, Moebius & Roedelius and Fripp & Eno are all exhumed, but Vocokesh re-image the references into something far more extreme than the aforementioned ever imagined.  Eerie and sonically provocative, Through the Smoke is one intense mind-moving hallucination." - Strange Attractors Audio House.

Born in 1941 in Strasbourg, France, Michel Vogels artistic activities started in 1960 when, as a painter under the materic influences of Antoni Tapies and Jean Dubuffet, his mineral and sound experimentations built a universe influenced by free jazz, extra-European music and Olivier Messiaen. His research developed with new sculptures and the creation of his own resonating metal instruments. His friends of the minimalist group, and especially the Fluxus artists, supported and pushed him to carry on his acoustic explorations while his sonic creations got closer to the music of John Cage, Philip Corner, Morton Feldman and Giacinto Scelsi. After the deep cosmo night music of Une petite music de nuit (Vogels first LP) Planam decided to issue two more early-morning oriented realizations, or Ronde mattinale à Amillis and Berenice. These alfa-wave improvisations for prepared gongs and self-built metal instruments, selected in direct collaboration with the artist, will make you enter into luminous sonic dimensions.

"This recording documents two rare live performances: Anomalous Records [Whittier,CA] and Hangar 18 [San Francisco, CA], both from June, 1994. These shows followed the release of Vespers and contained material similar to it. Voice of Eye is centered around the duo of Bonnie McNairn and Jim Wilson who live in Houston, Texas. To best explore new avenues and allow them to shape sound, they have built several of their own instruments. Some these, like the Squawk Box are controlled by bioelectricity, the electrical aspects of the human body. The Squawk Box is a small device housed in plastic container and can be held in the hand. The device is played by touching two wires which yields a squealing sound. They see an instrument to be the physical manifestation of music, the inert form of sound. And with this in mind, Jim has developed stringed instruments which are bowed to extend the envelope, so the texture of each sound has time to be explored, expanding time so as to hear each part of the whole." - Anomalous

The 250 copies pressed were all housed in a nice poster-sleeve featuring a cartoon history of the band drawn by Chris Welton. The two songs have their roots firmly in 1977 melodic Punk and are worth a spin with their infectious mix of Buzzcockian guitars and TVPs-like vocals. The combo had already split by 1981 with all members quitting music altogether. Steve Millar would sadly commit suicide in 2002." - 45 Revolutions.

Title: S/T
Format: LP

Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Named after an 1870s tome of lectures on the Apocalypse, RICK TOMLINSONs VOICE OF THE SEVEN THUNDERS distills years of divergent musical exploration that followed his much-acclaimed VOICE OF THE SEVEN WOODS debut (Twisted Nerve, 2007). This time around, multi-instrumentalist and sound sculptor Tomlinson has assembled a full-fledged rock group. On their self-titled new release, infernal and primitive energies mingle with the bucolic reveries that won him previous acclaim. "Open Lighted Doorway" begins the album with a glimmer of the pastoral sounds that mark Tomlinsons earlier recordings, soaked in reverb as if corrupted by time; the monolithic "Kommune" follows with rolling guitars and rhythmic layers of primal percussion. "The Burning Mountain" erupts like flames from an Anatolian mirage-a tide from the East. The purely acoustic "Dry Leaves" offers the listener a momentary respite before "Dalaelven" breaks the spell with its vertiginous howl. This blinding acid haze is broken only by the stripped-down vocal harmonies of the introspective closer "Disappearances." Received a 9/10 rating in NME, a 4/5 rating in MOJO, and 4/5 rating in Uncut." -Holy Mountain

"This 10" mini album presents some of VTBs very earliest recordings. The sessions seem to indicate that VTB enjoyed a particularly powerful vintage of Winsor-Newton cadmiums while recording. And for lack of VTB really repeating themselves, I can only paint an abstract portrait of the present opus. Their obsession with small sounds is in place and they already make for a crack improv ensemble, giving their pigment soaked inventions the kind of life that beckons many repeat listens. ATPICB is comprised in nearly equal parts of surrealist/dada sound sculptures and of minimal wave/prog canvases. All tracks were culled from the earliest VTB tapes of 1996." - Beta-Lactam Ring.

Format: 5 LP Box

Country: UK
Price: $112.00
"Leicester, England -- mid-1990s. Aaron Moore, Nick Mott, Clarence Manuelo, and Daniel Padden create a freeform group called Volcano the Bear out of their frustration with standard musical limitations. Now, in 2015, after 20 years of experimenting with improvisation, folk, Dada, post-punk, krautrock, noise, surreal comedy, pure avant-garde, and more, the group has obtained a cult following and high critical praise across the globe. Renowned for their highly theatrical and obscure live performances, as well as their mind-blowing catalog of releases, Volcano the Bear truly is a one-of-a-kind group, consistently pushing forward with their own unique, experimental approach to sound making. Commencing manages to be both a retrospective of the groups 20-year history since their formation in 1995 as well as its own unique release filled with vast amounts of material. The five LPs presented here, each in individual covers with liner notes for each track on the back and housed together in a deluxe silkscreened box, contain 64 tracks and clock in at over four hours in length. Expect an abundance of previously unreleased material, alternate versions, tracks from early cassette albums never before released on vinyl, live recordings, pieces from forgotten compilation appearances, and more, all mixed and compiled together to form five standalone albums. The set also includes a 50-page book of writings, photos, artwork, and flyers from the bands long history, along with a download code for the complete set plus a bonus album of ten tracks that didnt make the final cut. This is the ultimate Volcano the Bear release for fans of the group and of surreal, experimental musical history in general. "Listening to the wealth of mainly unreleased and live material presented here, ones mind boggles at the wonderful, extraordinary and frankly bizarre pallet these guys have to offer. They take us on a sure fire journey into some of the most healthy and unambiguous, crazed and deadly, astonishing and timeless music to push our pleasure buttons up to 13!" - Steven Stapleton, Cooloorta, May 25, 2015.

Title: Golden Rhythm/Ink Music
Format: LP
Label: Rune Grammofon
Country: Norway
Price: $23.00
"Rune Grammofon presents the brand-new studio album from Volcano The Bear, a calculated, hysterical melting-pot of This Heat, Robert Wyatt, Faust and The Residents, of musique concrète and ethno-folk, all seen through a prism of theatrical improvisations and unhinged set pieces. Formed in 1995, and after several self-released tapes and CD-Rs, VTB so excited Nurse With Wounds Steven Stapleton, that he brought his United Dairies label out of cold storage to release their first album proper, The Inhazer Decline, in 2000. Since then theyve released music on such labels as Misra, Beta Lactam Ring, Textile, Digitalis, Pickled Egg, Alt Vinyl as well as their own imprints Volucan and Volfurten with the exceptional Classic Erasmus Fusion from 2006 being a possible highlight. On record, VTB offer stark and stunning absurdities in the most bizarrely beautiful way. Recycling and re-contextualizing their material is an innate habit, and the variety of recording options they might choose (be it a highly-equipped professional studio or a second-hand dictaphone) allows their craft to be formed in a myriad of different ways. VTB have toured extensively throughout Europe and North America and in concert they are the duo of Daniel Padden and Aaron Moore. Absurd humor and eclectic ways of producing sounds are characteristic of their live performances and their extensive knowledge of the traditions of experimental and folk music makes the band difficult to categorize. The band record everything they play and will often use these recordings as raw material for their albums. VTB have released a number of records since the start, often mixing studio, live and home recordings. Golden Rhythm/Ink Music is their first more or less "proper" studio album since Amidst The Noise And Twigs back in 2007. Largely based on the sonic fault-line between Aaron Moore and Daniel Padden, its also the most focused and driven of VTBs prolific output so far, showcasing the duos unique musicality and interplay, while retaining their trademark eccentricity and humor throughout. It presents "rock music" as seen through VTBs skewed eye, featuring more of Padden and Moores drum/guitar combination than on previous albums. Taking the bizarre energy of their live duo performances into a studio environment, and combining it with VTBs eclectic instrumentation and Clarence Manuelos singular audio-work, GR/IM shows VTB making their most vital work to date. Includes mp3 download code." -Rune Grammofon.

"Volfurten is the new trip in to the odd and the strange from UK musically freaks Volcano the bear, its ltd to 300 copies each in a different hand painted cover. Which is a nice bonus,but what about the music- well this is as odd as anything they?ve done before, feeling like a very strange magic carpet ride- touch down musically in (their own) world music, jazz, odd metallic moments, dada sound tomfoolery, oh and no real vocals one this one either. The feeling, vibe or theme that starts the album and reappears later is very desert based in my mind. Though a very strange desert, one with muilt coloured sands and camels walking along the sky and strange arabic men with huge beards trailing behind them as they give audio swimming lesson backwards. Yes this is very odd stuff indeed, Track one drags us into this strange ethnic world with wonky snake dance guitar and ethnic percussion. Track two takes us deeper into the desert where we really seem to start to loose are mind as we meet all manner of manic chanting and strange audio shenanigans, before dropping into a very odd nightmare world of bent Bernard Herrmann string work, via strange building drone tones. Next it goes into a little surreal ballet dance practice, with clunky piano and all manner of bizarre calls and sounds over the top. It all ends off with a strange ritual air via distorted instrumentation and what almost sounds like typewriter key hits .Track three seems to ushers us into a black and white scene maybe something from a odd early Jess Franco film, where strange macabre female dances out a jerky and plainly disturbing death dance. As ragged violin hover and swirl in horrific air ,female voices chant like spirits calling you over the other side and goosepimply organ weaves on like the reaper seeking out victims. So as you can see you have to expected anything and everything to happen with in these audio confines. I wont detail any more as Volcano the Bear stuff is best tripped into solo and with out set vision." - Roger Batty.

Format: LP

Price: $27.00
“Antwerp-based nonconformist Dennis Tyfus debuts on PAN under his Vom Grill moniker with the Knerpen! (bevel) LP. Tyfuss dealings in unstable media -- spanning paintings and illustrations, films, radio transmissions and more -- reflect the freeform, sometimes parodic nature of his sonic output, which has been archived on his own Ultra Eczema imprint alongside many outsider, weirdo, and noise underground artists. Knerpen! (bevel) is a jarring collage of skewed electronics, tape loops, and treated vocals. Opening sequence "I" writhes and seizes with electricity. Skull-resonant clangs are sucked and scrunched back into themselves, before throbs of condensed static give way to the sound of someone rummaging around inside the bodies of acoustic instruments. On B-side "II," Tyfus multitracks the vocalizations of opera singer Emilie Fleamountains into an empyrean choir, before winding back the tape into a foaming-at-the-mouth mechanical meltdown. The 140-gram LP was mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering. It features photography by Dennis Tyfus and layout by Bill Kouligas.” - Pan. "What arouses the interest of Dennis Tyfus, with his difficult feet, is a clear, artful and wild realism whose extravagance never leaves one indifferent and can be summarised above all as the attempt to have fun in the end, after all." - Wim van Mulders.

"Three raw living room and live recordings from 1985, documenting the first three months of the groups existence, imbued with decadence and vitriol. Repetitive profanity, spartan adornment, outward-looking disgust and contempt take centerstage on "Swelling Admiration," a tune with less dance groove than a riderless bike getting hit by a car. Honest, a skipping Suicide album sounds like "Bohemian Rhapsody" in comparison. The oblivion-embracing ode to defeatism "The Only Way Is Down" conveys, with flourishes such as impatient sighs, blase moans and flickering drum machine, distaste for the ubiquitous, neon-colored optimism of mid-80s fratboy / sorority girl airheads. Overdriven and sloppy in places, its pulse is insistent yet dire. Flippers signature tune "Sex Bomb" is stripped of all its properties, pretty much, thanks in no small part to the hand-held condenser mic recording; most of what remains is the noise of the audience in the room and the only thing potent enough to slice though it-singer PATRICIA ROWLANDs psychotic screaming.

"Von Bingen began life when husband and wife duo Jenni Pace and Daniel Presnell (Astral Blessing) temporarily suspended Hildegard (their east coast group of clangorous misfits), and relocated to Vancouver, BC where they soon met Josh Stevenson (aka Magneticring, and one-time JOMF member), and Richard Smith. Influenced by histories of conceptual art practices and electronic and outsider music native to the west coast, Von Bingens sound is at once reminiscent of distant sonics, such as those found in the labs of 60s SF pioneers, or overheard in Berlins Zodiac Club in the early 70s, while also anticipating the drone of future decades. Folk forms gleefully mutate, reborn as new hybrids, dignified by analog modular and semi-modular synthesizer systems from Serge, Buchla, and EMS. Instruments such as the flute, clarinet, guitar, and the drum are defamiliarized through quixotic treatments, originating from experimentations in the bands studio. By rescuing tones, processes and technology from dusty desuetude, Von Bingen happens upon a unique retrofit for advanced audiences that is sure to confound, if not altogether please. Within the grooves of this lp, you will not find full-fledged allegiance to current fashions, nor will you find some light loop of cheap sensations, hollow-core historical reenactments, or facsimile sentiments. In fact, we are not sure what you will find at all, and that is the beauty of nature, a potentially infinite system of chances, where the opportunity to un-learn is as important as the opportunity to learn; where memories possess the power to eclipse experience; where all history becomes synesthesia. Join Von Bingen in this new Eden, and by all means, have an apple." - F.O.L. Ministries, 2009.

"Welcome to Monster Planet, STEVE MAXWELL VON BRAUNDs 1975 classic of Australian proto-electronica, a big blast of Kosmische dust, Korgs working overtime. Arguably, the first fully electronic Australian album, Monster Planet is a solo recording from one half of the infamous Australian electronic duo, CYBOTRON. Von Braund recorded this pre Cybotron album upon his 1973 return to Australia after soaking up the sounds of psychedelic 60s London where he mingled with Hawkwind, The Soft Machine and Graham Bond. Circling between that classic Krautrock motorik beat, and a different, almost jazz-y kind of fluidity, Von Braund combined his London experience with his love of German Head music such as Amon Duul, Popol Vuh and Ash Ra Temple, to create a mutant electronic masterpiece. Praised by Tangerine Dream, and lauded by legions of Krautrock collectors, Monster Planet is an early example of visionary Australian experimentation. Presented as an exact replica of the rare 1975 Clear Light Of Jupiter LP, remastered from the original master tapes and complete with liner notes and rare photos. Monster Planet is taste of what was to come and flourish with further cosmic experiments under the Cyboton name." -Dual Planet.

Title: Atmosphere
Format: LP
Label: Bureau B
Country: Germany
Price: $23.00
"Bureau B present a reissue of Adelbert Von Deyens third album Atmosphere, originally released in 1980. Album number three from electronic musician Adelbert Von Deyen marks the end of his ambient phase. Whilst Atmosphere largely swathes listeners in familiarly vast expanses of sound, the driving analog drums of the opening track (Von Deyens most successful, as it turned out) signal a shift towards electro-kraut terrain. Atmosphere showcases Adelbert Von Deyen at the peak of his powers. The opening track, "Timemachine", sees him launch into zestful electro-krautrock, aided and abetted by Wolfgang Zabba Lindner on drums. Lindner had already popped up in the early 1970s in a prog-rock combo by the name of Tomorrows Gift and recorded an interesting experimental percussion album in 1974 with Carsten Bohn (Vollbedienung Of Percussion). He can also be heard on the second piece "Silverrain" (in rather less zestful mode). A further eight tracks follow - revolving around the theme of Atmosphere - layers of synths glide slowly by, accompanied by drones which resound for minutes on end. Beats and synth FX add to the air of contemplation. A huge amount of time and money went into the production of this album. Adelbert Von Deyen composed tirelessly in his home studio, experimenting with his synthesizers and searching for new sounds. Lars Hidde added the final touches, taking care of the mix and mastering at Star Studio, Hamburg. All in all, it was worth the effort. Atmosphere proved to be Adelbert Von Deyens most successful album. In his biography he writes: "Reactions to this opus were extreme, but absolutely positive, especially in other countries. Timemachine appeared on quite a few LP and CD compilations and became an instrumental hit, the single selling around fifty thousand copies!" If Adelbert Von Deyens first two albums saw him strive for artistic and financial independence, Atmosphere marked the beginning of a metamorphosis. Atmosphere is still in the sphere of ambient electronica, but the first two tracks are indicative of a clear shift towards krautrock or electronic rock. Von Deyens next album would head off in a different direction altogether. The soft rock ballads and socially critical lyrics of Eclipse (1981) came as a complete surprise." - Bureau B.

Title: Nordburg
Format: LP
Label: Bureau B
Country: Germany
Price: $23.00
"Bureau B present a reissue of Adelbert Von Deyens second album Nordborg, originally released in 1979. Electronic musician Adelbert Von Deyens debut and sophomore album were released just a year apart from each other. Sternzeit (BB 237CD/LP) was followed by Nordborg, which featured only one track on each side. Again, Von Deyen took his time crafting a meditative maelstrom of ambient sounds. Von Deyens debut album Sternzeit had caused quite a stir in 1978 in his home town of Lübeck, where the unconventional young artist found himself inundated with fan mail and booked for autograph sessions. His contract with Sky Records obliged him to deliver a set number of albums to the label - one per year. Enjoying financial independence, he was able to give up his job and focus exclusively on his music. Nordborg appeared in 1979 and featured just two tracks, one on each side. It was inspired by a short holiday in Nordborg on the Danish island of Alsen, which coincided with a violent blizzard. "Moonrise", the A-side title, is a slow motion improvisation on the rising of the moon on Nordborg. Opening with synths evocative of seagull cries, meditative soundscapes mesh together massive lead sounds in unhurried harmony. Winds swirl, synths twist into electronic spheres of sound, drifting without any clear dramatic structure. Immersed in introspection, Adelbert Von Deyen celebrates life in the moment. "Iceland", the B-side piece, is an acoustic interpretation of a snowstorm in Nordborg, Denmark, as remembered by Von Deyen. Perfect for Adelbert Von Deyens artistic expression: sustained organ tones deliver beat frequencies, an electric piano pattern is lost in reverie, winds build through the ARP Odyssey, finally sinking into icy melancholy and detached organ tones. Towards the end we are reconciled by an almost sacral organ part which Adelbert Von Deyen brings full circle as he returns to the opening theme. Adelbert Von Deyen recorded the second album, like the first, on a Revox A77 tape machine in his little home studio. The instrument list echoes that of Sternzeit, with an ARP Odyssey performance synthesizer, a Farfisa VIP 233 organ, a Farfisa String-Orchestra, Hohner Clavinet D6 electric piano, rhythm computer and an electric guitar." - Bureau B.

“Bureau B present a reissue of Adelbert Von Deyens debut albumSternzeit, originally released in 1978. Adelbert Von Deyen is a protagonist of the so-called Berlin School (Berliner Schule) of electronic music. On his debut album, he takes his time to develop sound structures, often drifting, floating blissfully into tonal interference. The listener also requires time and patience, but will be rewarded with a Zen-like state of contemplation. Adelbert Von Deyens musical backstory follows a less than typical path. He recalls: "To make the best use of my evenings, I finally bought a second-hand synthesizer, various electronic keyboard instruments and a tape machine, plus a few bits and pieces you need to make music. If I didnt have enough money, I asked the bank. During the day I worked as a re-toucher for a newspaper and in the evenings, I composed my celestial electronic sounds, invariably deep into the night. It took me around eight months to finish my first compositions. I made tape copies which I sent out to various record companies. I struck lucky straight away. Sky Records in Hamburg were interested in my music and my first record was granted a worldwide release in 1978. I called it Sternzeit and I painted the cover myself." Founded by Günter Körber in 1975, the label had already hosted acclaimed releases from electronic and krautrock stars like Michael Rother, Hans-Joachim Roedelius and even Brian Eno. A decent level of public interest was thus guaranteed. Sternzeit was one of the early releases on the label. In principle, many elements on this first album reappear on the two which followed: rich analog layers, the swirling winds of the ARP Odyssey, masterful synth effects sprinkled so delicately. The second side of the record is devoted to a single track which is based on an incessant organ tone and played with vibrato, engendering a hypnotic sense of weightlessness. Keyboarders often taped down keys on their organs or synthesizers to create such effects back in the day. When Adelbert Von Deyen performs, he sits down with his back to the audience, focused on his arsenal of equipment. The way he has unreservedly followed his passions for music and artistic creativity speaks volumes about his free-thinking nature. Adelbert Von Deyen mixed and produced this album in his own small studio on a Revox A77 tape recorder.” - Bureau B.

"And of course, the days are short, the nights are long and we must celebrate the birth of our saviour again. Christmas was no friend of mine. But there is one little bit of light in the dark days of christmas: Meeuw Muzak releases another fine 7". By now I can spend at least half boxing day listening to the crazy christmas tunes of Meeuw. The latest addition is by Dittrich von Euler-Donnersperg who has released some even more crazy music on his own Walter Ulbricht label and Die Stadt, with partly reading of texts and partly electronic music. Here he offers two soft electronic music pieces, which are like snowflakes (of course it never snows in Dutch christmas times). Almost kitchy and new age like on a super cheesy keyboard with all the wrong (and thus right) preset sounds, Dittrich is perhaps that great family man that such tunes under his tannenbaum for a wealth of happy children, who start unwrapping their presents as daddy finishes his tunes. Great stuff, once again. I cant wait for christmas with my Meeuw Muzak collection (isnt about time for a nice CD compilation, mister Meeuw)." -Meeuw Muzak.

Format: LP
Label: Soave
Country: Italy
Price: $31.00
"Soave present the first vinyl reissue of Wolf Vostells debut Dé-coll/age Musik, originally released in 1982. A seminal figure in the history of 20th century avant-garde, yet sinfully overlooked, Wolf Vostell unleashed ideas - those running wild through his debut LP Dé-coll/age Musik - which remain a slap to the face, more than half a century after they were set into play. A founding member of fluxus, an early instigator of happenings, an innovator of video art, Vostell was equally one of the most radical and irreverent practitioners in sound that the world has ever known. First released in 1982, Dé-coll/age Musik draws from material dating between the late 1950s and early 80s - the results of Vostells application of décollage, the near perfect inversion of collage. Rather than gathered and assembled sounds, as with musique concrète, these are the result of subtractions from a former whole - the death of one, giving life to the next. Swelling from the past, Vostells efforts pull the rug from beneath the common history of structured sound. A singular body with no loyalty, producing shocking results. A grinding confrontation - an intoxicating immersion in sound - as brutal as it is ecstatic - an exercise in joy. Dé-coll/age Musik assembles the essence of a creative spirit which is rarely known. Each work as radical and fresh today as the moment it was made. Comes in a gatefold sleeve." - Soave.

Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Vox Populi!, a 1980s French post-punk/industrial/minimal collective known for circulating cassette-only releases, gets the reissue treatment lovingly curated by turntablist/producer DJ Cut Chemist. In 2004, while on tour/record-digging in Milan, Italy, Jurassic 5 founder and DJ Cut Chemist picked up a compilation featuring a group named Vox Populi!, whose track "Megamix" caught his attention. As familiar as he was with early hip-hop releases that pioneered the megamix (The Adventures of Grandmaster Flash, Double Dee & Steinskis Lessons series), this was clearly coming from a different set of cultural reference points. Originally released in the 80s, the track was not rooted in disco, hip-hop, or in DJ history, but rather in the sounds of post-punk and industrial music. The rudimentary "scratching" present on the song was abrasive, and probably executed with a reel-to-reel tape machine rather than a turntable. Its intended effect was not to bridge two songs or breaks, but to jar the listener out of what was otherwise a seamless club track experience. "Musique concrète" is what the collective (Vox, Pacific 231, H.N.A.S., X Ray Pop, and others) might have called their approach at the time. "Wild Style on dust," was how Cuts collaborator Tom Fitzgerald described it. Finding this record ultimately led to Cut Chemist tracking down the group, bonding over shared aesthetics and getting their blessing for this collection, which includes unreleased tracks, photographs and little-seen flyers and art from the group. Their original output was primarily on cassette with the occasional vinyl LP/EP released on their own Vox Man Records imprint, or on other like-minded independent labels.
