Title: (The Microcosm): Visionary Music of Continental Europe, 1970-1986
Format: Triple LP Box Set
Label: Light In The Attic
Country: USA
Price: $54.00
Deluxe Stoughton "tip-on" jackets and slipcase. "The follow-up to Light In The Attics game-changing I Am The Center box set is finally here. Three years in the making, The Microcosm: Visionary Music Of Continental Europe, 1970-1986 is the first major overview of key works from cosmically-taped in artists needing little introduction -- Vangelis, Ash Ra Tempel, and Popol Vuh -- and unknown masterpieces by criminally overlooked heroes like Bernard Xolotl, Robert Julian Horky and Enno Velthuys. Whereas I Am The Center called for a reconsideration of an entire maligned genre, The Microcosm requests nothing more than an open mind to consider this ambient, new age, neuzeit, prog, krautrock, cosmic, holistic stuff, whatever one calls it -- as a pulsating movement unto itself, a mirror refracting the American new age scene in unexpected, electrifying ways, proving beyond a shadow of a doubt the universality of the timeless quest to express the Ineffable through music. Drawing from major label budgets and homemade cassette distributed circumstances alike, The Microcosm demonstrates a depth of peace profound to behold, and clearly expands the boundaries. Lovingly conceived and lavishly presented by producer Douglas Mcgowan (Yoga Records) and liner notes contributor Jason Patrick Woodbury (Pitchfork, Aquarium Drunkard), The Microcosm features stunning cover paintings by astronomer/entomologist Étienne Trouvelot, and labels by Finnish savant Aleksanda Ionowa. Remastered audio, including a previously unreleased track and several others previously cassette only." - Light In the Attic.

Title: ...And Shiva Came for Charlie
Format: LP
Label: Ri Be Xibalba
Country: USA
Price: $32.00
"This LP collects the monthly mp3 series hosted on the Ri Be Xibalba web site from June 2006 to June 2007. Each track was only available for one month and then deleted. In the midst of this, our friend Charles Gocher passed away. As an immediate reaction to this, I bumped Sir Richard Bishops track from the March slot and left the page silent in remembrance of Charlie. As all the artists in the series are based in Seattle, and many were good friends of Charlies, it was decided to dedicate this collection to his memory. These were the people around him most, and fittingly the album features images based on photographs of Charlie taken by his old friend Janet McCracken. Accompanying this is a 20-page booklet with a little about each artist here, many of which are still unjustly underappreciated in the larger scheme of things. Charlie himself was a unique human being. And of course rather than leave him in silence, it seemed better to represent him on this record in his voice, as he was rarely silent. So on this LP, alongside the mp3 tracks, is a previously unreleased Charles Gocher recording from the Sun City Girls archives. Unlike the other material on the album, which is quite contemporary, Charlies track dates from July 2, 1990 when it was recorded live on the air at CITR radio in Vancouver, B.C. As all but this track were previously available as free mp3s, and I just happened to have 320 useable black jacket left over from the Piano Bar release (which Charlie was quite thrilled by), this release is limited to that number of copies. The music on this release is quite varied. Experimental rock music from Factums and The Sea Donkeys, free jazz from Spider Trio and Michael Shannon, spoken word from Charles Gocher and Uncle Jim, acoustic guitar solos from Dave Knott and Michael Ohlenroth, creepy soundtracks from Wizard Prison and Sir Richard Bishop, Climax Golden Twins drone, Katharina Tunicatas catchy accordion and voice song and the utter disaster of Lung Wing not being able to play any instrument. Yet there are multiple connections between the various artists presented here, both musical and otherwise, not to mention a few players who appear on more than one track. This is a document of a group of friends and compatriots in Seattle who are poorer for the loss of our friend, but continue to create strong music. Includes a previously unreleased track by Charlies Gocher from 1990. Pressed on 120 gram vinyl manufactured in the USA by RTI. Hand screen printed covers and inner sleeves printed by Alan Sherry at Siwa. Includes 20-page booklet. Limited edition of 320 copies." - Ri Be Xibalba.

Title: 135 Grand Street, New York, 1979 Soundtrack
Format: DVD
Label: Soul Jazz
Country: UK
Price: $17.00
"Garage band line-ups in varying degrees of post-punk musical destruction. Ericka Beckmans film matches the rawness, minimalism and radicalism of the music - a fitting document and visual statement of new forms created out of New Yorks anti-everything musical nihilism, circa 1979. 135 Grand Street, New York, 1979 is history. This is a film about bands made up of painters, filmmakers, actors - and occasionally musicians - thriving and thrashing in the pulsating, vibrant post-punk world of New York where high art met low culture. Ericka Beckman documented the cross-fertilizing art and music scene in New York in the mid-1970s. Her film captures the driving energy and posturing of early No Wave bands performing in a sparse downtown loft. Featured bands include Theoretical Girls, UT, A Band, Rhys Chatham, Chinese Puzzle, The Static, Morales, Youth in Asia, Morales, Steven Piccolo and Jill Kroesen. The film has been shown throughout the world as part of Sonic Youths Sensational Fix touring art exhibition as well as screening before Glenn Brancas shows in New York City (Sep 2009). The mid-price DVD comes in a thin-DVD case with booklet." "If you want to see what the Soho side of No Wave looked like this is the only place youre ever gonna find it." - Glenn Branca. Dual-sided DVD in both NTSC and PAL formats; 60 minutes.

Title: 1970s Algerian Folk and Pop
Format: LP
Label: Sublime Frequencies
Country: USA
Price: $24.00
“Sublime Frequencies is thrilled to present a second volume of classic tracks from Algerias popular music history. Where volume 1 focused on the early to mid-1970s Rai scene in western Algeria, this album features a variety of pop and folk styles from that same period. From the heavier rock and psychedelic sounds of Rachid & Fethi, Les Djinns and Les Abranis, to the haunting folk music of Kri Kri and Djamel Allem and the film soundtrack moods of Ahmed Malek, 1970s Algerian Folk & Pop documents a key period in the modern musical renaissance of a nation in transition. Most of these tracks are from 45 rpm singles, the key format during the early 1970s before the cassette took over as the medium of choice. Western musical influences can be heard throughout this extremely diverse record, yet there is an undeniable Algerian sense of sadness contained here within a more tolerant space in time between two of the countrys most significant historical periods; National Independence from France and the darker times of a brutal civil war yet to come. Compiled by Hicham Chadly, this limited edition LP comes in a full-color gatefold jacket with lovely images from the period and extensive liner-notes by Omar Zelig, Algerias most legendary radio DJ.” - Sublime Frequencies.

Title: 1970s Algerian Proto-Rai Underground
Format: LP
Label: Sublime Frequencies
Country: USA
Price: $28.00
"This is Raï music from Algeria as youve not heard it before. In the early 1970s, a new group of singers and musicians were operating on the northwest coast, and what they pioneered was a sound that eventually reached worldwide status by the end of the decade; however, their names are relatively unknown to this day outside Algeria. This crucial and defining period of the development of Raï is criminally ignored and overlooked by Algerian music historians and Raï fans. Due to censorship and government-controlled music diffusion, this scene and lyrical style was forced underground and banned from broadcasts, yet slowly built a small following around the seaside cabarets of Wahran (Oran). This period witnessed the rise of artists such as Groupe El Azhar ("The Flowers" group) and Messaoud Bellemou, who can comfortably be considered the godfather of the modern Raï sound. His group, LOrchestre Bellemou, rewrote a heritage of centuries by using modern instruments and especially the trumpet, which became, during the 1970s, the backbone of the Wahrani genre. Reinterpreting the gasba melodies on trumpet, Bellemou backed singers such as Boutaiba Sghir and Sheikh Benfissa who carried on the lyrical tradition of their forefathers singing about daily preoccupations and problems as well as love affairs, alcohol, or simply owning an automobile! Toward the late 1970s, Cheb Zergui brought a newer ingredient: an electric guitar with a wah-wah pedal. Thankfully, the late 1960s saw the development of vinyl pressing in Algeria. This new industry allowed many small artists including the Wahrani "scene" to record and release singles documenting their repertoire. This compilation is a selection of this proto-Raï scenes vinyl 45s. This LP is limited to a one-time pressing of 1500 copies on 180 gram vinyl and comes in a full-color deluxe gatefold jacket with photos of the musicians and informative liner notes by the man who compiled it, Hicham Chadly." -Sublime Frequencies.

Format: CD
Label: Suppose
Country: Germany
Price: $16.00
"An acoustic homage to the artist, poet and theorist Oswald Wiener from his friends, companions and fans. The inspiration for the different tracks was Wieners aesthetic of failure in the tradition of the Wiener Gruppe (The Vienna Group) and of his selten gehörte Musik (rarely heard music) records with Gerhard Rühm and Dieter Roth. “Together we have attempted an aesthetic of failure, an aesthetic of incompetence. And this is a very painful aesthetic, an aesthetic of embarrassment, disgrace and limitation. But because the main thing is to seize and to emotionally affect the listener, there is of course this disgrace and embarrassment as a kind of emotion and as a play with ones own weakness…” With original tracks from: Thomas Brinkmann & Marcus Schmickler, Valie Export & Ingrid Wiener, Nihilist Spasm Band, Mouse on Mars, Ira G. Wool, Wolfgang Müller (Die tödliche Doris), Gerhard Rühm, Hubert Fichte, Mario Subassis, Michel Würthle, Rolf Graf, Franz Josef Czernin, Attersee, Rosa Pock, H. C. Artmann." - Suppose.

Title: 391 Vol. 4: Umbria - Voyage Through The Deep 80s Underground In Italy
Format: Double CD
Label: Spittle
Country: Italy
Price: $26.00
“Spittle Records presents 391 Vol. 4: Umbria - Voyage Through The Deep 80s Underground In Italy. The 391 project was born in 1983 from the desire of two troubled teenagers, from a boring provincial town, Ascoli Piceno, to give life and form to a series of compilations on tape, a picture of the Italian music underground. The name choice was intended as a tribute to the homonymous magazine of Dadaist New York, drawn by painter and poet Francis Picabia. The intent was to geographically organize the musical material, probing the new wave and post-punk groups region by region: A mapping of Italys music, the marginalized and angular, according to this selection criterion: represent the most radical of the new national rock scene, and be a group that grew up in the aftermath of the post-77 explosion, trying to capture its very essence. Despite a great deal of material collected, from various regions, the 391 project stopped in 1985, after the release of the first two volumes dedicated to Marche and Umbria. With the executive production of Spittle Records and involvement of old and new fellow adventurers, we resume the thread widening the sound spectrum, in an effort to be as comprehensive as possible. More than thirty years after its birth, 391 returns to unearth treasures, in many cases not yet emerged, through a new journey into deep Italian underground. Features: Nemo: Gli Amici Di Flash Gordon, Lӧ Noize, Anime Di Gomma, I. Decayed, Water Krause, Twilight Marshes, Busti Robusti, Brain Machine, Die Crucis, Strange Militia, Exules Of Joy, Ipnotico Tango, Secret Gardens, X-Offender, Militia, Warhead, Gli Elettrici, Aidons La Norvege, Syndrome, Nengue, Plan K, Effetto Notte, Why Theory?, Bolletta - Germini, Officina Dello Sterminio, Filth, Axa Vanea, FZ, Future Sense, Sulu, Res Majes, Dosshouse, I Giardini Di Marzo, Guguz 89° Flash and T.V.

Title: A Distant Invitation: Street & Ceremonial Recordings from Burma, Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand
Format: LP
Label: Sublime Frequencies
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"A hallucinogenic splatter-drift audio meltdown through the streets and back alleys of Southeast Asia recorded and assembled by Seattle-based multi-sword-wielding artist Jesse Paul Miller (Factums/Secret Records/Liver & Bacon/Big Tribal Balls). This limited edition LP includes street and folk music, situational ambience, radio excerpts, and psychedelic atmospheres from Burma, Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand. "We heard them from a distance, bells in the back alleys of Surakarta ... Then, one day, two weeks later, we walked around a corner and there they were, a troupe of roving gamelan musicians and a monkey with a mask ... If one wanders the streets of Southeast Asia, they will undoubtedly hear a variety of fascinating sounds; those created by street musicians, sellers in markets, horns from temples and mosques, woven with insect songs, birds, dogs, motorcycles. Intended to engage and entertain a host of spirits and gods, festivals and processions are frequent in certain regions. They can be extremely vibrant and overwhelmingly powerful energy situations. In rituals, the use of random multiple layers or instrumental vibrations can be intended to confuse or scare off bad spirits, and this can be very disorienting for the living listener also. Street musicians combine older instruments with electrical delivery systems in the form of genius portable battery-operated-waist-pack mini-horns connected to keyboards, karaoke machines, and folk instruments -- sometimes with effects. These musicians sit roadside; in some places they hop on buses between stops. In markets and along roadsides, sellers manipulate their voices to advertise using delay effects. Food cart proprietors use an incredible array of sonic methods to attract customers. They tap on objects, use steam whistles; sing like birds, use bits of Western jingles (and much more). Buddhist, Hindu, and Muslim broadcasts can be heard blasting through loudspeakers. With the addition of amplification, there is usually some form of distortion inherent to the speaker systems, often magically enhancing the voices, mixing in with the urban or rural soundtrack. The sonic tapestry of any space can reveal poetic insights. There is the perspective that all audio events in an environment, regardless of their form, can be heard musically. The vitality and depth of human expression, whether awe-inspiring or minute in all of its multitudinous manifestations, is for now, intact in Southeast Asia, and very much alive." --Jesse Paul Miller; This limited edition LP comes in a full-color tip-on jacket with a two-sided insert including photos by Linda Peschong & detailed liner notes and personal impressions by sound artist & compiler Jesse Paul Miller." - Sublime Frequencies.

There a couple of fine archival tracks by 3 Toed Sloth, but the rest is of an equally ginchy quality--thuggy, VU-damaged, lo-fi, mumble-core beauty. Free your ass, the rock will follow." - Byron Coley, The Wire. Last copies of the original 2009 release, which was reissued on vinyl in 2010 by Unwucht.

Title: Acid Dreams
Format: CD
Label: Past & Present
Country: UK
Price: $17.00
"Recognized as one of the truly great comps of all time, this 1979 selection of 60s U.S. hard guitar-psych, compiled by the owner of a record shop in Berlin, has often been reissued on CD with the wrong tracklisting and non-existent liner notes. Originally released on LP, only 77 copies were pressed and apart from a few that were given to friends and family, the remaining records were only sold through the compilers shop or shamelessly bootlegged. Unavailable on either LP or CD for years, the Past & Present label are pleased to make this important compilation available again. This reissue, which stays faithful to the original, comes with an 8-page booklet detailing each of the 18 tracks. Acid Dreams proved that punk rock was not a new thing; kids had adopted the same snotty attitude in the mid-to-late 60s. The opening track, White Lights "William," sets the standard for whats to come: a compulsive, classic, hard guitar-psych 45 rocker and 17 more psych diamonds follow in its wake. A true gem mined and polished by Past & Present. Artists include: White Light, Caretakers Of Deception, Outcasts, The Music Machine, Mystic Tide, Stereo Shoestrings, Velvet Illusions, Unrelated Segments, Beautiful Daze, Painted Faces, Teddy & His Patches, Vejtables, Faine Jade, Balloon Farm, Minds Eye, Zakary Thaks, Remaining Few." -Past & Present

Title: African Scream Contest - Raw & Psychedelic Afro Sounds
Format: CD
Label: Analog Africa
Country: Germany
Price: $21.00
"From Benin & Togo 70s. Spectacular package with thick 44-page booklet and slipcase packaging. This CD is licensed for release in the U.S. later in 2008, unsure if it will have the same deluxe packaging... "Just like with the labels first two releases -- albums by Zimbabwean 70s bands the Green Arrows and Hallelujah Chicken Run Band -- the essence of Analog Africa is clear yet again: searching in dusty warehouses for forgotten music to keep it alive. All the tracks have been officially licensed, usually from the artists who Ben Redjeb also met with for detailed research. He conducted 16 interviews in various cities in Benin and Togo with artists, producers and sound engineers to reconstruct the history of the 70s music scene for the 44-page booklet which also includes many rare photographs directly received from the artists. Like most modern music in French-speaking West African countries, the music of Benin and Togo was influenced by a few main musical currents: Cuban, Congolese and local traditional music, as well as Chanson Francaise. Additionally, the geographical location of Benin and Togo -- sandwiched between Ghana and Nigeria -- exposed Beninese and Togolese musicians to Highlife music. The cultural and spiritual riches of traditional Beninese music had an immense impact on the sound of Benins modern music. Benin is the birth place of Vodun (or, as it is known in the West, Voodoo), and some of the rhythms used during traditional rituals -- Sakpata, Sato, Agbadja, Tchenkoumé and many others -- were fused to soul and Latin music as early as the mid-1960s and later to funk. That fusion is the essence of this compilation. In the late 60s and early 70s, rock and soul music started creeping into the region. In particular, the music of James Brown and Johnny Halladay became immensely popular with university students. It was then that the music scene in Benin really started to take off. What made this musical revolution even more interesting is that most of the musicians could not read music. Often the music they made sounded one semi-tone away from being out of tune, but somehow they always managed to bring all the elements together into something new and exciting. One of the greatest bands of their era, Orchestre Poly-Rythmo de Cotonou, who are featured on this compilation, took the Afro sound to another level by showing their musical versatility in many forms. Although they were consciously copying Western artists, they would always inject a dose of psychedelic Afro grooves that would make their music unmistakably Beninese. Their biggest song, Gbeti Madjro is believed to have revolutionized the music industry in Benin in the 70s when the country went through a period of political turmoil. The song is full of raw breaks and the hypnotic rhythms as well as screams à la James Brown -- after this song, many bands in Benin started screaming on their recordings, hence the title of this compilation. Latin-influenced sounds are present on this compilation, too. Ouidah, a city on the Atlantic coast of Benin, is home to a large Brazilian community, or, as they are called in Benin, Agoudas. Members of that community are descendents of slaves who returned from Brazil at the end of the 19th century. Their dances (such as Kaléta and Buriyanj) and songs are still being performed and fused into the traditional Beninese rituals. That, too, can be heard in modern Beninese music. The proximity of the giant neighbor Nigeria can be heard on the track Djanfa Magni which features the amazing trumpeter/ saxophonist Tidjani Koné fronting the Orchestre Poly-Rythmo. Koné whose career started in Mali as the founder and band leader of the Rail Band de Bamako, had played with Fela Kuti for a short while hence the strong Afrobeat influence. There are countless stories to be discovered in the extremely well-researched booklet and the music is truly mind-blowing. So delve into the forgotten raw and psychedelic Afro sounds from 70s Benin and Togo and experience the African Scream Contest." -Analog Africa

Title: An Anthology Of Noise & Electronic Music Volume 1
Format: Triple LP
Label: Sub Rosa
Country: Belgium
Price: $39.00
"Subtitled: First A-Chronology 1921-2001. At last, the Sub Rosa label issues the highly-acclaimed Anthology Of Noise & Electronic Music collection on vinyl -- 3LPs housed in a luxurious triple gatefold sleeve. Containing early and contemporary classics as well as pieces that had never been heard before. Volume 1 begins in the 1920s with the Russolo brothers, and examines each decade in turn -- Varèse, Cage, Schaeffer, Xenakis, the great pioneers crafting the first traces of a music that was markedly revolutionary: electronic music, created from nothing and an artifice without boundary that was to be entirely invented. Whereas composers such as Stockhausen, Berio and Pousseur had come from Serialism and began making electronic music as a continuation of their work with traditional instruments, others such as Boehmer and Oliveros immediately began composing using electronic bases. There were those who invented new methods, like Schaeffer and musique concrète, others were outsiders, revolutionaries and visionaries like Xenakis and Cage, and still others who derived their sound from Dadaism, the complex forms of free-jazz, John Coltrane, the acoustic and electronic improvisation scene, alternative rock, psychedelic and industrial music, the German Krautrock wave of the 1970s, and so on. The contemporary generation of electronic musicians on volume 1 are DJs, reinventors of drones, painters and sculptors using sound as a process, and maverick software creators. An absolute must for anyone interested in the roots and history of electronic music, now in a beautiful deluxe triple vinyl package including liner notes. Other artists include: Walter Ruttmann, Gordon Mumma, Angus Maclise, Tony Conrad, Philip Jeck, Otomo Yoshihide and Martin Tétreault, Survival Research Laboratories, Einstürzende Neubauten, Nam June Paik, Sonic Youth, DJ Spooky, and Ryoji Ikeda." -Sub Rosa

Title: An Anthology Of Noise & Electronic Music Volume 2
Format: Triple LP
Label: Sub Rosa
Country: Belgium
Price: $35.00
"Sub Rosa issues the highly-acclaimed Anthology Of Noise & Electronic Music collection on vinyl, containing all of the music on the 2CD version -- 3LPs housed in a luxurious triple gatefold sleeve. The story continues with volume 2, featuring slow explorations of the past and the present. Given the present system of production, there are reasons, some of them identifiable, why only a few names emerge in each period. There may also be a preference for concentrating information rather than letting it pile up in disordered fashion. Over the past 40 years, the same ten electronic music composers get mentioned again and again (including in music dictionaries and histories). Yet behind them are many other names. Who are they? Second-raters? Not necessarily. For we then need to define the concept of top-rate (rated by who, and on what criteria?) and second-rate or minor artist. Great pleasure can be derived from the works of minor artists. The case of Tod Dockstader is instructive: when "for lack of academic qualifications" he was denied access to the electronic music facilities he needed, was there not great beauty in the pieces he nevertheless created and in his determination to make music without those facilities? His name was never seen on the labels of top record companies. But he influenced quite a few people -- Richard James quoted him, and others then referred to his work. Some of his records were reissued, and what one could call the rehabilitation process continues. The same applies to many other composers. All such stories spell a passion for music, and weave myth. At the turn of the century, there were efforts to find new sources of sound -- a number of machines were exhibited, including Thaddeus Cahiels Telharmonium in 1887 and the Dynamophone presented to the New York public in 1906; they generally played well-known romantic or post-romantic pieces. After a few flamboyant skirmishes described in the previous volume, the postwar period saw the arrival in 1951, of Wladimir Ussachevsky and Otto Luening in New Yorks Columbia-Princeton Electronic Music Center. When audiences of the 50s and 60s first heard Varèse, Pousseur, Stockhausen, Berio, Ussachevsky, Yuasa, Dockstader and Mumma, what did they feel? Perhaps a sort of break -- an epistemological break, like it must have been for the first audience of Monteverdis Orfeo. They left the auditorium completely stunned, because they had never heard anything like it. Artists on volume 2 include: Wladimir Ussachevsky + Otto Luening, Autechre, Luc Ferrari, Laibach, Alan R. Splet, SPK, Tod Dockstader, Johanna M. Beyer, Morton Subotnick, Captain Beefheart, Robin Rimbaud/Scanner, Hugh Davies, Daphne Oram, Sun Ra, Kim Cascone, Yoshihiro Hanno, Meira Asher, Woody McBride, Lasse Steen/Choose, Arcane Devices, and Percy Grainger." -Sub Rosa

This installment promises to be the pivoting axis in the seven volume set, with 75% rare tracks and music never before heard. In the previous three anthologies, Sub Rosa outlined the historical sites at the advent of concrete and electronic music: Pierre Schaeffers workshop studio (Vol. 1), the Princeton Electronic Music Center in Columbia, New York (Vol. 2), and the WDR Studio in Cologne (Vol. 3). After the pioneering work of these formative studios, their was a quick worldwide development of similar-intent facilities, popping up throughout Europe and America, but also in Brazil, Mexico and Japan -- countries where there was a will to create music that was radically new. This compilation features a classic cadre of artists from all over the globe, who are true cultural instigators in the field of electronic sound experimentation. Including new creations from China, Brazil, Norway and Hungary, as well as some classic and unpublished material from legendary composers such as Ligeti and Lucier and very rare documents from Robert Wyatt and François Bayle. Like the previous three volumes, this fourth installment is an absolute must for anyone interested in the roots and history of electronic music.

All this organized with internationalism in mind and, for once, a focus on the voice -- not as sung words, their traditional facet in music (from pop songs to lieder and operas), but as the word itself, recited, distorted, rendered abstract or disaggregated and screamed (the incantation so often a part of rock and noise music).

"Sub Rosa presents the sixth volume and penultimate installment of the highly-acclaimed and successful Anthology Of Noise & Electronic Music series. As usual, it culls old historical pieces, little-known gems, and even a few previously-unreleased tracks from the greatest Japanoise bands, a few representatives of the younger generations (from all around the world), and some rare tracks from the 80s, and it all ends with a lull that lets transpire what may be felt as a kind of indefinable mystery. The avant-garde ushered in the possibility of a new music, then it scattered into small communities whose best-known protagonists are totally unknown to people outside that particular circle. We are facing this fragmentation, and one form of avant-garde ends up scattered into several (not exclusively musical) forms. It is not in avant-gardes nature to create one elementary form for each individual. Other phrases used include "forays," "breakthroughs," "pushing the envelope," and then, of course, "going too far."

Title: An Anthology Of Noise & Electronic Music Volume 6
Format: Double CD
Label: Sub Rosa
Country: Belgium
Price: $19.00
"Sub Rosa presents the sixth volume and penultimate installment of the highly-acclaimed and successful Anthology Of Noise & Electronic Music series. As usual, it culls old historical pieces, little-known gems, and even a few previously-unreleased tracks from the greatest Japanoise bands, a few representatives of the younger generations (from all around the world), and some rare tracks from the 80s, and it all ends with a lull that lets transpire what may be felt as a kind of indefinable mystery. The avant-garde ushered in the possibility of a new music, then it scattered into small communities whose best-known protagonists are totally unknown to people outside that particular circle. We are facing this fragmentation, and one form of avant-garde ends up scattered into several (not exclusively musical) forms. It is not in avant-gardes nature to create one elementary form for each individual. Other phrases used include "forays," "breakthroughs," "pushing the envelope," and then, of course, "going too far." Tracks on this sixth volume comprise more than 2 1/2 hours of music, with many rare and unpublished tracks. Housed in a 2CD digipack sleeve, including a 52-page booklet full of notes and biographical info.

Title: An Anthology of Turkish Experimental Music 1961-2014
Format: Double LP
Label: Sub Rosa
Country: Belgium
Price: $25.00
“This anthology features works by Turkish artists ranging from the electronic music of the 1960s to all forms of experimental music of the 2010s. This is Sub Rosas second release exploring experimental music by zone or sphere of influence. The constellation built between 2000 and 2012 with Sub Rosas seven-part Anthology Of Noise & Electronic Music continues to expand through the Early Electronic collection (consisting mostly of tracks composed between the 50s and the 80s) and these "area anthologies," this one released following An Anthology of Chinese Experimental Music 1992-2008 (SR 265CD). This collection covers a much wider time-frame than its predecessor; this is because, in Turkey, two exceptional composers emerged very early on to show the way to future generations that then followed in a piecemeal fashion. Indeed, Bülent Arel and İlhan Mimaroğlu did not have immediate followers. The explosion happened later, through the "serious music" of conservatories and universities (Cenk Ergün, Koray Tahiroğlu, Mehmet Can Özer) and the electronic/noise music avant-garde (Nilüfer Ormanlı, Utku Tavil) -- the great wave of the 2000s and 2010s. The beauty of this collection lies in its multifaceted nature; it features purely formal music, hijacked electronica, remnants of Turkish harmonies, and pieces that are more conceptual or even political (vaguely or strongly) in design. Batur Sönmez and Erdem Helvacıoğlu have managed to capture this diversity and energy. And it so happens that this profusion of music, related to an urgency to live and think freely, is blooming within an increasingly stifling space. Call it the spectacular beauty of an explosion. Most of the material included here has not been released before. Includes works by Bülent Arel, İlhan Mimaroğlu, Erdem Helvacıoğlu, Batuhan Bozkurt, Alper Maral, Batur Sönmez, Cenk Ergün, Korhan Erel, Sair Sinan Kestelli, Koray Tahiroğlu, Mehmet Can Özer, Nilüfer Ormanlı, Utku Tavil, Asaf Zeki Yüksel, SIFIR (Zafer Aracagök), Cem Güney, Tuna Pase, 2/5BZ, Cevdet Erek, Reverie Falls On All, and Burçin Elmas.” - Sub Rosa.

Format: LP
Label: Frisco Speedball
Country: Spain
Price: $30.00
"Non-hippie, devastating guitar-psych and PCP induced hard-rock: Angel Dust Psychedelia is a 100% killers, no fillers compilation featuring obscure and unknown 45s and unreleased acetates from the US, most of them released on private labels. Many local underground bands of the late 1960s and early 1970s lacked the money and/or material needed to make a full-length album, and would put out a self-released 45s instead. Record collectors and writers have been slow to understand this treasure of vintage private press singles, with music that is every bit as good as hallowed underground LPs like Mystic Siva or Boa. Fourteen tracks including the monster acid-punker Time Gone to Waste by Local Traffic, post-Stereo Shoestring band Red House with an unreleased track, the mega rare acetate by Matchbox from Houston, tremendous acid-psych by Dick St John and Ragweed Patch, raw hard-rock by Masque and Zoo and more. The perfect companion to those legendary 80s psych comps like Brain Shadows, Acid Dreams, and Endless Journey. Remastered sound for a stunning in-your-face heavy guitar experience. Limited to 500 copies." -Frisco Speedball.

Title: Angola Soundtrack
Format: Double LP
Label: Analog Africa
Country: Germany
Price: $26.00
"Deluxe gatefold 2LP version. Subtitled: The Unique Sound Of Luanda 1968-1976. The nascent Angolan music scene was set on fire by a small group of intrepid singers, backed by an array of super-tight bands and led by extraordinary guitarists who revolutionized the musical and the political panorama of the 60s and 70s. A powerful confluence of traditional rhythms from Luandas islands, psychedelic guitar sounds imported from neighboring Congo, Latin grooves, old school Caribbean merengue and the hard beat of the Angolan carnival bands conspired to create the modern music of Angola. These sounds were immortalized by two excellent recording companies -- Fadiang (Fábrica De Discos Angolano) and Valentim de Carvalho. The great electric bands of Angola were a well-kept secret until the late 90s when France-based music label Buda Musique released a short-lived series of Angolan music compiled by Ariel de Bigault. Inspired and taken aback, the releases proved to be a pivotal juncture for Analog Africas founder Samy Ben Redjeb. From the nine Analog Africa releases thus far, Angola Soundtrack has been the most difficult to create. The travel visa was in itself a struggle and logistically and financially, Luanda is a nightmare. After two unsuccessful years, Samy eventually found shelter at a home in Prenda, a musseque (township) outside of the capital. With the support of Zé Keno, the legendary guitarist of Jovens Do Prenda, he managed to meet most of the composers of the tunes presented here. The anecdotes they provided are numerous. Boto Trindade, guitarist of Os Bongos, abandoned his dream of becoming a football player to support his brothers family by earning money as a musician. A very young Zé Keno went to see his favorite guitarist Marito performing with Os Kiezos and consequently built a three-stringed guitar only to become one of the most sought-after guitarists in the country a mere few years later. Angolan music is truly unique and stands on its own as a sound that can only be found in that part of the world. Rhythms such rebita, kazucuta, semba and merengue, all of which are presented in this latest compilation, might be unfamiliar, but they are superbly melodic, highly danceable, hypnotic, raw and quintessentially beautiful and totally addictive." -Analog Africa

Country: UK

"This V/A release reaches across oceans and continents to connect music from four obscure projects. From Providence (USA) to Melbourne (Australia), Another Dark Age delves deep into the noise and experimental scenes of both cities. Form A Log is a trio of which Ren Schofield (aka Container) is a member. Their twisted analog improvisations are as disciplined as they are chaotic. "In the Streets" is a chugging percussive jam that winds its way between noise and entropy. Phantom Selector, Victim and Carrier are artists who have released diverse music on cassettes under ever-changing monikers. Tortured vocals, eerie textures and cavernous kick drums represent the fleeting moods of these artists." - Another Dark Age.

Format: Double CD
Label: Basta
Country: Netherlands
Price: $23.00
"This second volume of the Anthology of Electronic Tape Music contains works composed after 1966, when electronic music broadened its horizons and established links with other disciplines, as studios opened their portals to influences and involvement from outside. Although electronic music after 1966 became very fragmented and took many new forms in Holland, Volume 2 of the Anthology aims to provide an overall survey of pure tape music. Other movements, such as computer music, and their links with each other are discussed in the liner notes. We have attempted to offer groundbreaking and influential works as well as first electronic works by pioneering composers. Volume 2 presents composers not represented on Volume 1. Jacob Cats, Tera de Marez Oyens, Jos Kunst, Gilius van Bergeijk, Frans van Doorn, Thomas Arras, Simeon ten Holt, Victor Wentink, Louis Andriessen, Peter Smith and Tony van Campen." -Basta

Country: UK
Price: $22.00
“Antologia De Música Atípica Portuguesa ("Anthology of Atypical Portuguese Music") is a series focusing on new strains of Portuguese music with an (un-)characteristic foot in past musical traditions of the country; The aim being to re-evaluate its musical history, deconstruct clichés and re-assemble preconceptions into a new and daring musical landscape. Each volume will have a loose theme and will be comprised of Portuguese artists working on the fringes and not following obvious and commercial paths of musical homogenization. Vol. 1 explores o Trabalho ("work") - various work songs both at land and sea are freely reinterpreted in a multitude of ways. Including the vocal tape deconstructions of Live Low, the ethereal pastoral drifts of Negra Branca (Marlene Ribeiro from Gnod), free jazz experimentations of EITR (Pedro Lopes and Pedro Sousa), as well as a very rare solo outing by one half of Yong Yong, Luar Domatrix (Rodolfo Brito). Also featuring on Vol. 1 are the digital voice manipulations of Tiago Morais Morgado, visceral guitar exorcisms by Filipe Felizardo, exoteric chants by Gonzo, Calhau!s mystic reinterpretations of lost pieces, and an exclusive composition by musician and instrument builder Peter Forest (Pedro Silva) dedicated to a long lost field working mans song, Maria Cavaca.

Title: Arkansas at 78 RPM: Corn Dodgers & Hoss Hair Pullers
Format: CD
Label: Dust-to-Digital
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"For the traveling recording men of the late 1920s, Arkansas offered enticing pickings. The region was thronged with vigorous, idiosyncratic string bands. This album carries the listener from the hillbilly music craze of the 20s to the song-based country music of the late 30s. Scarcely more than a decade, but a period, in music as in all American life, of galvanic change. This CD serves as the soundtrack album to the newly-released photograph book, Making Pictures: Three for a Dime by Maxine Payne. All of the photos in this package are from the same cache of photographs taken by the Massengil family in their mobile photo-booth trailer throughout rural Arkansas in the 1930s-1940s.

"It is indeed gratifying to know our program has made so many minds and hearts drift back to the earlier days when all was well, when the hoss hair pullers of old were in due form and all parties concerned were in a receptive mood for tipping of the fantastic toe... My aggregation from this district claim that their music and songs are not suggestive of anything except good and wholesome exercise ... So everybody come to the Arkansas Ozarks, where you can eat the best fruit in the world; where home-cured meat is found in the smokehouse and corn and hay in the barn; where you can juice your own cow, feed your own chickens, fish in the wonderful White River, meet these men of the Missouri Pacific and natives, and you will then say, Yes, indeed, you have the most wonderful country in the world." --Henry Harlin Smith, March 1926 on Hot Springs radio station KTHS

"Includes a CD digipak with a 32-page booklet with liner notes by country music scholar Tony Russell. Newly remastered 24-bit audio transfers from the Music Memory archive. Features original 78 RPM recordings made between 1928-1937." - Dust-to-Digital.

Title: Arktinen Hysteria: Suomi-avantgarden Esipuutarhureita
Format: CD
Label: Love
Country: Finland
Price: $15.00
⿿The Arktinen Hysteria compilation that came out in November 2001 was compiled by Jukka Lindfors, based on his series of radio documentaries for Finnish Broadcasting Company. Together here are gathered for the first time some seminal tracks usually considered the milestones of early Finnish electronic music; being the real predecessors of the sounds of Mika Vainio, Pan sonic & et al.; combined with some rarities and previously unpublished tracks. The album concentrates mostly around the output of the now-legendary Love Records label, varying from electronic music to avantgarde sounds, free-jazz and experimental rock. Here one can witness some truly timeless electronic pioneering works, delving into the real Finnish analogue roots of glitch, clicks & cuts and even modern laptop sounds. Artists include: M.A. Numminen, Tommi Parko, Pekka Kujanpää (future underground guru M.A. Numminen and his cohorts burping and gurgling to a simple blues theme playing in the background, as part of this home-made tape recorded in 1961), M.A. Numminen & Sähkökvartetti (Holy Grail of Finnish electronic music, creepy-sounding and even hymn-like, with wailing and sounding like electronic insects), Tommi Parko (avantgardistic pranks), Erkki Salmenhaara (sounds like a constant switching of dial between radio stations: snippets of orchestral sounds, reverberated electronics, harpsichord, piano etudes, whatever), Blues Section (the territory of backwards tapes, tape loops and other "mind-blowing" sonic regalia of the late 60s), Erkki Kurenniemi (This could be something by Hecker of Mego Records, only 30 years before laptops), Jukka Ruohomäki (non-machine-like electronic pop music), Jouni Kesti & Seppo I. Laine (Pure noise inferno of explosions and chaos), The Sperm (a combination of an experimental rock group and a provocative performance group, features undecipherable vocals mumbling, screeching, murmuring, screaming utter nonsense), J.O. Mallander (Dadaist piece of conceptual art, an aural counterpart to what Andy Warhol did with his movies of repeated boredom), The Sperm (a free-for-all melee of cacophony, like some collective lunatic asylum art therapy), Pekka Airaksinen (murky sauna hut sound expressions, total antimusic and again, totally ageless), S. Albert Kivinen (This aleatoric assault is about the then-US Vice President Spiro Agnew).⿝ - Love. Amazing CD of LAFMS-type sounds, but recorded 10-20 years earlier! With thick, indepth booklet of photos and text (in english and finnish). Highly recommended!!

Format: 7 LP Box Set

Country: Italy
Price: $178.00
Incredible set of 3 boxes, each with 7LPs in it, from the Alga Marghen archives. These are all previously released LPs, but most have been o/p for many years now. The boxes are limited to a numbered edition of 80 copies each. "The VocSon series might be identified as the starting point of all the Alga Marghen activities. This series, which still continues to present on limited LP records the most advanced international vocal experiments, is mainly dedicated to the documentation of sound poetry. Since most of the titles immediately sold out, Alga Marghen decided to issue a kind of anthology, specially issued for ArtBasel where Alga Marghen will present its catalog following an invitation by Maurizio Nannucci of the Artists Record Pavillion. This also in order to give the opportunity to those who missed the-now-rare original editions to be able to find them now, even if in a very limited run. Each LP is numbered on the VocSon innersleeve expressly conceived for this edition. This luxury boxset edition actually includes the first 7 LPs issued for the VocSon series, or: 1) Bernard Heidsieck Poème-Partition X LP. First 80 copies from the original 300 copies edition issued in 1997. The very early experimental poem by Bernard Heidsieck may be considered one of his first important creations. The record which started the VocSon series. 2) Henri Chopin Cantata for Two Farts & Co. LP. Edition of 80 copies with new labels. Henri Chopin presents previously unreleased audiopoems as well as the reprint of two pieces from the Radiotaxi LP (the tracks taken from Radiotaxi are here presented for the first time mastered at the correct speed). 3) Bernard Heidsieck Vaduz LP. Edition of 80 copies with new labels. Vaduz (12:23) can be considered one of Bernard Heidsiecks major works. Very experimental with a lot of electronic manipulations. According to Henri Chopin, this is the only true audiopoem by Heidsieck. Composed June to December 1974 and recorded on a Revox A 700 at the authors studio. 4) Philip Corner Word-Voices LP. First 80 copies from the original 500 copies edition issued in 1997. A record LP of vocal utterances including early Fluxus voice and instrumental pieces. 5) Henri Chopin Les Mirifiques Tundras & Co.. Original pre-released edition of 80 copies on yellow vinyl, never offered before. Extreme voice sound manipulations. Somehow in the vein of Hodell Text-Sound composition, just more primitive and visceral. 6) Sten Hanson The Sonosopher Retrospective LP. First 80 copies from the original 545 copies edition issued in 1998. An anthology of Sten Hanson Text-Sound composition. This edition pre-dates the anthologized CDs which were issued in Sweden. 7) Ake Hodell 220 Volts Buddha LP. First 80 copies from the original 545 copies edition issued in 1998. Fantastic electronic music LP. The pieces on this LP were included in the 3CD anthology issued by Fylkingen. Your chance to get the original edition on LP now." - Alga Marghen.

The third Bernard Heidsieck LP issued by Alga Marghen draws the picture of two specific moments on artistic creation: the 1950s and the 1970s. 3) Jose Luis Castillejo The Book of is LP. First 80 copies from the original 240 copies edition issued in 1998. Very limited and immediately sold out edition of Castillejo conceptual recordings. Jose Luis Castillejo books always included him among the Concrete Poems and were regarded as very special graphic creations. A deep exploration of his abstract and radical poetry will lead to a more conceptual and philosophical understanding as this LP clearly states. 4) Jil G. Wolman Lanticoncept LP. Edition of 80 copies with new labels. Edition of Gil J Wolman megapneums, or the beginning of the whole sonic adventures. If Gysin was a strong conceptual influence for the Henri Chopin and Bernard Heidsieck generation, Wolman was showing them the sonic direction. Just with the use of the breath and respiration, his Megapneums had the same intensity of the electronic manipulation that will make Chopins audiopoems so radically new and uncompromising. This LP also include excerpts from Wolman sound-film LAnticoncept from 1952. 5) Isidore Isou Poèmes Lettristes 1944-99 LP. Edition of 80 copies with new labels. Historical edition by Isidore Isou. This is the first record LP ever published by the father of Lettrism. Poems from 1944 to 1999 including a breath taking improvisation, some 1970s recordings by Maurice Lemaitre and an early, primitive and incredible performance by Francois Dufrene. Recorded at Isous apartement in 1999. 6) Juan Hidalgo Una Voz LP. First 80 copies from the original 323 copies edition issued in 2000. First ever ZAJ LP record! An historical recording of Juan Hidalgo Una Voz, including concrete sound interventions by Walter Marchetti. A large size booklet with the transcription in English and Spanish of the spoken text is also included. Capital! 7) Arrigo Lora-Totino Fonemi LP. First 80 copies from the original 345 copies edition issued in 2000. Arrigo Lora-Totino is probably best known for having been the editor of the famous sound poetry anthology issued by Cramps Records in the 1970s with the title Futura. But only a few know about his sound poetry production. Following Henri Chopins idea that poetry is above all an expression of the body through its own language, Lora-Totino started his important poetic practice in 1965 with Fonemi, a sound sample of erasure: the reading of a text recorded on tape is filtered through an electronic pulse generator that splits it into small fragments." - Alga Marghen.

This LP includes previously unreleased audiopoems dating from 1965 to 1981. 7) Ben Patterson A Fluxus Elegy LP. First 80 copies from the original 345 copies edition issued in 2006. This Ben Patterson composition, issued on is based on the basic principles of the polyphonic music of the Bantu tribes of West and Central Africa. First principle: the practice of interlocking individual pitches or tones performed by one person into spaces between other pitches or tones performed by another person, thus alternating pitches or tones of one part with those of another part to create a whole. Second principle: use of cyclical and open-ended forms involving one or more ostinato melodic/rhythmic pattern as a foundation. Third principle: community participation... non-specialists are encouraged to join in long performances with much repetition. Fourth principle: rhythmic complexity with the juxtaposition of double and triple patterns, multiple layering of different patterns, and interaction between a core foundation and improvised parts. And, most important, the family ownership of a specific tone: in the musical culture of these tribes, each ancestral family owns and is responsible for one or more specific tones, which must be sounded at specific points, sequencing with the many other specific tones owned by other families, to create a seamless melody. Ben Patterson made a music based on this information by taking the initials of artists listed in Fluxus: The Most Radical and Experimental Art Movement of the Sixties and encoding them in basic International Morse Code. These dots and dashes were then performed on a Yamaha DJX keyboard (voice pattern setting), connected to a Digitech JamMan Looper (over-dub setting), connected to an Eurorack MX 602A mixer. Front cover reproducing the original score." - Alga Marghen.

Label: Alga Marghen
Country: Italy
Price: $176.00
"New volume of the Avant Marghen series in a numbered edition of 80 copies. This luxury black boxset edition actually includes the fourth group of 7 LPs previously issued for the VocSon series and now sold out. Each individual LP record includes a numbered Avant Marghen inner-sleeve. LP 1 to 4) François Dufrene Oeuvre Désintégrale 4 LP set. First 80 copies from the original pressing of 345 copies issued in 2007, presented here with minimal hand-elaboration on each sleeve. François Dufrenes impressive work, along with that of Gil J. Wolman and Brion Gysin, was a strong influence for experimental poets like Henri Chopin, Bernard Heidsieck and Ake Hodell. LP1) Oeuvre Désintégrale 1 LP includes an 18-minute-long crirythme from 1969 as well as Osmose-art, a long piece from 1969 divided into two suites where Dufrene superimposes his crirhythms to classical music. LP2) Oeuvre Désintégrale 2 LP includes six majestic crirythmes (created between 1965 and 1976) as well as Eryximaque, suite choreographique au Tombeau de Pierre Larusse, a work halfway between the written text and the sound poem whose unity is achieved through Dufrene performing it, a masterpiece of synthesis of active poetry. LP3) Oeuvre Désintégrale 3 LP includes two Lecture-collages dating from 1965, adding jazz music (especially drum and percussion pieces) to poems marked by strong Lettristic esthetic. One of his most extreme crirythmes, titled Belles nuisances, hantez nos nuits, dating from 1970, is also included on this record. LP4) Oeuvre Désintégrale 4 LP includes three breathtaking crirythmes as well as two Comptinuum from his early on-progress works started in 1958. LP5) Charlemagne Palestine Voice Studies LP, limited to 80 numbered copies pressed on dark blue vinyl and featuring a new sleeve, only available with this boxset edition. Palestines introduction to music or sound was first with his own voice. This LP includes the very early Surrealistic Studies, using a Webcor reel-to-reel tape recorder, discovering a technique of shouting into the microphone and immediately pulling it out, creating an interior echo chamber where the sound would turn around on itself, changing and distorting. Voice + Piano Study I & II are short and beautiful piano improvisations with tape superimposition of accelerated voice pieces. In Voice Study Charlemagne sings in a falsetto duet with himself on two separate tracks in a resonant space, searching for intervals that resonate together and respond like electronic sound wave oscillators played against each other. LP6) Gherasim Luca Two Poems LP. First 80 copies from the original pressing of 385 copies issued in 2009. Created in close connection to Sten Hanson who invited the Rumenian artist at Fylkingen in the very beginning of the 1970s and made him discover the possibilities of the advanced EMS electronic music studio of Stockholm. The two recordings presented here are quite unique as they are the only poems by Gherasim Luca created through the use of electronic manipulations. Autres Secrets Du Vide Et Du Plein (April 1971) and Crimes Sens Initiales (April 1972) were both performed at the 1971 and 1972 Text-Sound Festivals of Stockholm. Including an essay by Henri Chopin. LP7) Charlemagne Palestine & Simone Forti Illuminations LP. First 80 copies from the original pressing of 365 copies issued in 2010. Duo interactions, illuminated with dim red lights. The three previously unreleased recordings on this LP were made between October and December 1971." - Alga Marghen.

Title: Bay Area Retrograde (BART) Vol 1
Format: LP
Label: Dark Entries
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Bay Area Retrograde (BART) Volume 1 is Dark Entries first compilation of underground music from San Francisco (and the greater Bay Area) in the 1980s. Towards the end of the 70s, San Francisco experimental music clashed with the aftermath of punk and gave birth to a vibrant underground scene. By the early to mid 80s the DIY music scene of the Bay Area was a hotbed for experimental and quirky new wave, post punk, and synthpop, quite similar to New Yorks No Wave scene and Berlins Neue Deutsche Welle. This compilation literally connects the (transit) lines between these varied musical offerings and tells the secret story of eleven forgotten Bay Area bands and contains four previously unreleased tracks on vinyl, until now! BART Volume 1 features a Korg-heavy assault from Danvilles utterly obscure Nominal State; two little-known left-field electronic dance gems from Batang Frisco and Quiet Room; Berkeleys answer to darkwave, Necropolis of Love; a synth-driven drama fest from drag performance troupe Wasp Women; quirky lo-fi gothic pop from one man band Distant Thunder; a gay Hi-NRG anthem delivered by Danny Boy and the Serious Party Gods; two lesser know gems from SF synth legends Voice Farm and Los Microwaves; and the futuristic pulsing synth-punk of Standard of Living and the Units. All tracks have been carefully remastered by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. Each LP is housed in a large 6-panel fold out poster by with liner notes by Johnny Ray Huston, original photos, fliers and artwork documenting this fertile period. BART is more widely know as the acronym for Bay Area Rapid Transit, the main rail transportation system for the San Francisco Bay Area and the band on this compilation. This LP is by no means a definitive compilation but merely opens the tunnel to the underground sounds of the Bay!" - Dark Entries.

Country: USA
Price: $25.00
"The Twisted Tales From The Vinyl Wastelands series takes the listener on a dark adventure, a wrong turn into a bizarre, alternate world of American country music performed by small town, unknown hicks. The second volume,Beating On The Bars, collects eighteen ultrarare hillbilly 45s recorded for long-lost independent record labels. The theme this time is incarceration -- the county lock-ups, state pens and prisons. When Johnny Cash released his live at Fulsom Prison andSan Quentin LPs to critical acclaim and commercial success, small-town hopefuls rushed into backwoods recording studio across the South to tell their own tales of crime and punishment. Until now, most of these records lay forgotten in the solitary confinement of the bargin bins. The 16-page CD booklet features, liner notes from Country Music legend Bill Carter, track-bytrack comments from Texas rockabilly singer (and serial killer researcher) Mack Stevens, plus an original short story from underground writer Avery Powell, all pulled together with amazing graphic artwork from acclaimed illustrator Olaf Jens." - Trailer Park.

Balazs Horvath (1942 ? 2006): Gritty Street - for the 65th anniversary of Z. Jeney; Further Series. Daniel Dinyes: Ouverture, Air, Double. Marton Kerekfy: Rhapsody. Performed by Beáta Móri, cimbalom, Krisztina Dobner, flute, Zsolt Bartek, clarinet. "It was the 20th century when the international fame and recognition of the cimbalom started to grow exponentially. Today, a wide choice awaits musicians ranging from being an independent soloist of a concerto to playing in the most varied chamber ensembles. The relationship between composers and musicians works ideally; new compositions are played by outstanding experts and, in turn, cimbalom players abound in new pieces. What is more, as it is also demonstrated by our present recording, it is still possible to say something new through the cimbalom. Here, eleven pieces composed by six young composers will have been heard in the rendition of Beáta Móri, who -- despite her youth -- can already take pride in having several dedications." - Hungaroton.

Format: Double LP
Label: Honest Jons
Country: UK
Price: $21.00
"This is part 1 of a 2LP set of vinyl versions of Honest Jons Something Is Wrong: Vintage Recordings From East Africa CD compilation -- selections from an HMV run of more than 400 78s -- recordings made in Uganda and Kenya from the mid‐1930s to the mid‐1950s. Part 1 encompasses this material circa 1938-1946, entitled Bellyachers, Listen: Songs From East Africa, 1938-46. Three main types of performance are featured (not forgetting a lovely early Kenyan big‐band calypso, as if straight from the pen of Lord Kitchener). Most are minstrelsy, with songs ranging dazzlingly through subjects including loneliness and death, bastards and cut‐off trousers, trains of fire and no‐good rich people, a murder mystery and a drunken punch‐up at a rumba party in Kampala, and metaphorical cocks, hard pedalling and kettles which wont boil. Other minstrels accompany themselves on various sorts of lyre, and guitars carrying the influences of U.S. country music and Congolese 78s, the influx of Congolese musicians, and the harmonies of Christian church music. There are also tough, raw contributions on button‐accordion and taarab music from the Swahili‐speaking communities of the east coast, and Arab and Indian communities in ports like Mombasa, which had imported Egyptian and Indian music since almost the start of the century. Lilting melodies are provided by violins or Indian harmoniums, sometimes also an oud, along with Indian or Arab percussion. Luxuriously presented, in a gatefold sleeve, with full notes, including extensive translation and haunting photographs. Recordings brilliantly restored at Abbey Road." -Honest Jons

"96 page monster book featuring the visual smegma of Jacob Horwood and Andrew Zukerman and more! Contains Ayal Seniors The Last Screenplay, an unabridged, unwound stammer through his 340972 film ideas, an instant classic, really... The book includes a 4-way split over 2 cassettes, featuring Man Made Hill (Canada), Dolphins into the Future (Belgium), Lead Sister II (Japan) and Crown Now (USA)... Man Made Hill is all of the Jackson 5 (even the dead one) channeled through one white-man with his sub-par pawn-shop electronics and extensive knowledge of "avant-aesthetics". This is guilt-free dance music. Dolphins into the Future is Lieven Martens of Imvated, or whatever label hes doing right now, a reformed nude-noise ruffian now turned onto the New Age by the holographic entities of Jung, Gurdjieff and Watts and trying to replicate the sound a dolphin makes in a napolitaner carton filled with peroxide. Lead Sister II is a one-man Kemialliset Ystavat forging new directions with a battery of home-made instruments and noise-makers. Why this is not a colony of dumpster-diving vegans in the foothills of some 60s parody is a mystery to me. Crown Now is a boy and a girl, a dejected duo brought together because they wanted to make the cheerleading squad. This document of their practice the night before and also the reason why they were rejected is the fourth and final side of your patience." -Beniffer Editions.

Price: $43.00
"Edition of 500 copies, featuring tracks from Cabaret Voltaire, Miles Whittaker, Fis, and Abdulla Rashim. The Berlin Atonal festival picks up on a tradition begun in 1984 with the publication of two volumes of live recordings from the 1983 edition of the festival. Those records bore witness to the most inventive, adventurous sounds of the festival, and therefore of their time, containing live bits from Psychic TV, La Loora and ZEV. Berlin Atonal Vol. 3 carries this custom three decades forward with selections from four of the standout performances of Berlin Atonal 2014. Of course, Cabaret Voltaires lauded and historic first show in over 20 years is featured, with Richard H. Kirks no-nostalgia and machinery-driven set firmly putting the Cabaret Voltaire project in a future-facing direction. Miles Whittakers surprising and muscular live performance also contributes a cut, as does festival favorite Fis, with his characteristically lumpy, textural soundscapes. Finally, two selections from Abdulla Rashims memorable session gesture toward a possible future for synthesized music. Housed in a gatefold sleeve." - Berlin Atonal.

Format: Triple 7" Boxset
Label: Numero Group
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Three 45s with original Boddie acetate artwork plus extensive notes, housed in a 7" shipping box, and sealed with faximile Boddie paper shipping tape. From 1965 until 1987, husband and wife Thomas and Louise Boddie provided the greater Cleveland, Ohio, area with custom recording and affordable record manufacturing. The Boddie Recording Company operated out of the African-American couples house on the east side of Cleveland, complete with a fullservice, hand-wired analog recording studio and a busy pressing plant steaming around the clock in a converted dairy barn at the back of the estate. A kaleidoscope of northern Ohio musical acts used the Boddie services in one way or another, booking time in the tracking room, cutting reference acetates, or pressing a couple hundred 45s for local distribution. Selecting from the reliable parade of musicians crossing paths with his enterprise, Thomas found time to curate his own stable of talent through his Soul Kitchen, Luau, Caribi, Plaid, and Bounty labels. But by and large, Boddie Recording Company was not a creative endeavor for Thomas or Louise. Instead, it made the Boddies an honest living by providing teenage bands and aspiring gospel ensembles an inexpensive shot at having their own creations laid to wax. Of these hundreds of groups, weve selected three that were found in unmarked boxes, never picked up, certainly never released. The labels are a facsimile of the Boddies custom acetate sticker, pressed on 48 gram vinyl, housed in a tape box, and sealed with Boddie Recording kraft tape." -Numero Group

Title: Bollywood Steel Guitar
Format: Double LP
Label: Sublime Frequencies
Country: USA
Price: $28.00
First time vinyl issue of the out-of-print CD. Double LP Stoughton gatefold with the bonus track "Duniya Mein," (covered most famously by the Sun City Girls as "Apna Desh" on the Crossdressers release). Bollywood Steel Guitar is the most comprehensive collection to date of steel guitar pop instrumental music from India. All 21 tracks featured here were film hits from 1962-1986 and all the masters of the steel guitar sound from the period are represented: Van Shipley, Kazi Aniruddha, S. Hazarasingh, Sunil Ganguly, and Charanjit Singh. An entirely different approach that rocks, swings, and grooves through some of Indias most beloved film tunes, the electric steel guitar as lead instrument transforms the already infectious melodies into a multitude of higher sound dimensions. This album was compiled and carefully selected from rare LPs over several years by Stuart Ellis. Here are some excerpts from his liner notes: "The term Bollywood originally referred to Bombays (now known as Mumbai) Hindi language film industry. Although there are a number of other studios that produce films in other languages, more recently the definition has been expanded in the West to describe pretty much all films produced on the sub-continent. But where in most countries a films soundtrack would merely be used as a promotional tool for the film, in India, film music has become an industry unto itself with playback singers and dance numbers. The music is just as important as the film and lives on long after the film has left the theaters. These songs are, for the most part, the pop music of India. As with most popular music, other artists sometimes recorded cover versions of these songs. Of these musicians, a small number specialized in instrumental arrangements and created what could be called the elevator music of India. While there were a few who used the harmonium or mouth organ, the most popular instrument used in these instrumental favorites was the steel guitar." - Sublime Frequencies.

Title: Britxotica! Londons Rarest Primitive Pop and Savage Jazz
Format: LP
Label: Trunk
Country: UK
Price: $25.00
"So you thought exotic recordings only came from Hawaii or the USA? Well, youre wrong. Heres a collection of amazing, far-flung sounds from the UK. Rare, wild, and just itching to turn your turntable into a strange pagan place of sonic worship. Just try to keep those cocktails from flowing and your clothes on. "Britxotica" (pronounced "Britzotica") is a word you may never have come across before. Trunk hadnt either until DJ and tastemaker Martin Green made it up in 2014. This term neatly describes an odd and yet undocumented pre-Beatles musical scene in which famed UK composers, singers, and bandleaders threw convention to the wind and went wild wild wild! Drawing influences from Hollywood, Hawaii, and holiday (any hot and frantic destination would do) they conjured up sounds to suit a modern but fledgling escape from the gray trudge of postwar London. The result is a bunch of rare, mod, wild, and naïvely experimental trips into the tribal, but keeping the white suit, shirt, and tie firmly in place no matter what the temperature. Fascinating, sometimes fierce, and often absolutely bananas, this new album of old toss is an absolute trip! All cues mastered and sequenced by Jon Brooks aka The Advisory Circle. Single LP. Standard black wax. None of this dicking around with 180-gram tip-ons, multi-colored wax, obis, useless inserts, or unwanted novelty extras. Just rare and interesting music. Performers include Lyn Cornell, Ted Heath, Allan Bruce, Rawicz and Landauer, Lucille Mapp, Sounds Incorporated, Nadia Cattouse, Brian Fahey, Tony Mansell and Johnny Dankworth, Reg Owen, Harry H Corbett, Laurie Johnson Orchestra, Edmundo Ros, Maxine Daniels, Cherry Wainer, and Jerry Allen." - Trunk.

"There is a legend in Burma stating that swarms of male dragonflies gather to join in choruses of high-pitched tones to court their mates. The ones that dont succeed in mating eventually scream so loud that their chests explode and they drop dead to the ground. These recordings are a tribute to this legend. Droning cicadas, dragonflies and other insects display their charm as masters of the High Frequency Airwaves recorded live and unprocessed by Tucker Martine in the lush settings of Laos, Thailand, and Burma. Enter the supernatural world where Entomology and Electronica converge in a tropical hallucination of alien sound. Anyone whos ever wondered if these strange symphonies could be recorded or preserved as precisely as they sound in the field need look no further! Martine has done it and you will be transported to the exact experience one would encounter in these mysterious lowlands. Liner notes by Hakim Bey!" - Sublime Frequencies

Format: LP
Label: Sublime Frequencies
Country: USA
Price: $21.00
“Sublime Frequencies presents the inaugural volume in a three volume set of contemporary field recordings by Hisham Mayet, recorded in Burkina Faso during three expeditions from 2013-2015. Volume 1 highlights the sacred and secular music of the regional balafon or xylophone revered by the Lobi people of southwestern Burkina Faso. In Lobi culture, the balafon performance is not simply music; it is a form of speech that allows master musicians to converse intimately with the living and the dead. Volume 1 showcases two side-long tracks that are as thrilling as any Burkinabé music ever recorded. These tracks not only echo but also further some of the greatest examples of Western avant-garde music: Imagine the pulsating minimalist motifs of titans like Terry Riley or La Monte Young elaborated into a dizzying maximalism. Includes performances by Kabaré Balafon and Lobi Balafon. Comes with a full-color insert of liner notes and a map of Burkina Faso. Edition of 400.” - Sublime Frequencies.

On side one, riveting string instruments such as the Mossi and Bissa koundé accompany gnarled, primal vocal epics extolling the virtues of kings and the common man. On side two, the otherworldly sounds of the thianhou (reed zither) and the lolongo (bow-shaped mouth harp) levitate the listener into a blissful trance.

Eventually Martine found himself in the backseat of a beat up Peugeot on his way to the village of Kela, a Jeli village, where the songs and traditions of the Mande people have been scrupulously preserved.

Format: Cass
Label: Vitrine
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"Vitrine is thrilled to unveil Byron Recital Hall No. 3, the latest volume in a continuing series of assemblages and chance meetings. Being left with the stain of blind interaction. Episodic actions spool into greater chambers of interlocking dismay. Mike Collino, either with solo efforts as Dog Lady Island or via his sterling Alien Passengers imprint, exemplifies the midwestern / Detroit milieu of home-tapers and jammers while also generating a blurred, placeless intrigue. There is more than enough room at this table for analog gunk and grime, but a place has been set for refined obscurantism and Fluxus absurdity.The bent is unmistakably American while also Continental, not unlike LaDonna Smith and Davey Williams Southern skew on surrealist bric-a-brac via Trans Museq. Various players are assembled in aggregate units to then be combined and mixed according to procedural schematic. While past volumes reeked of a heady Detroit junk noise brew and the spacious event of East Bionic Symphonia, this issue touches on everything from abattoir circuitry to Phren-esque analytic decollage. The players are amongst the lighthouses of the fertile midwestern vein, including Tyler Hicks, Andrew Coltrane, Heath Moerland, Sam Hooker and Knox Mitchell, as well as criminally under-documented artists such as Brad Dixon and Michael Dresden. Byron Recital Hall No. 3 serves as a candle down to a morass of largely untapped group innovation. What was once obscure becomes obvious to a fault. Rooms are disassembled, voices lose their bodies and decay never truly manages to destroy the sound. Limited to 100 copies. Sold out at source." - Vitrine

Country: USA
Price: $29.00
RSD 2016 release. First vinyl edition; originally released on CD in 2004 and long out of print. Limited edition of 2000. "Two LPs with bonus tracks in full-color gatefold sleeve with extensive liner notes and vital new track and title information. Restored and remastered audio. Lovingly assembled and notated by Mark Gergis. Primarily drawn from over 150 aging and often unmarked cassettes found at the Asian Branch of the Oakland Public Library in California during the late 1990s, Cambodian Cassette Archives showcases an unbelievable collection of dynamic music recorded between the 1960s and the 1990s, both in Cambodia and abroad. Male and female vocalists share the spotlight in a Khmer blend of folk and pop stylings, with cha-cha psychedelia, phase-shifting rock, sultry circle dance standards, pulsing new wave, haunted ballads, musical comedy sketches, easy-listening numbers, and raw instrumental grooves presented in an eclectic variety of production techniques. Heard throughout are legends of Cambodias golden age during the 1960s-1970s, including Sinn Sisamouth, Ros Sereysothea, Pen Ran, and Chhoun Vanna, among others. With their fantastic ensembles, they helped rewrite Khmer musical history, often weaving traditional melodies into the various dance crazes and rock and roll sounds infiltrating Southeast Asia at the time. Then, between 1975-1979, the Khmer Rouge tragically seized and devastated the country, killing millions and nearly erasing the culture. This collection also focuses on what came next -- the lesser-heard music of the Cambodian diaspora, recorded in the 1980s and 1990s. Beginning inside Thai refugee camps, singers such as Kieng Yuthhan were among the first to record what can be called a post-war Khmer music. Songs ranged from renditions of revered Khmer songs from the golden era to original music that borrowed from both traditional and Western styles. Some flirted with contemporary disco or new wave influences, while others pursued more traditional ballads or more traditional romvong-style dance music. Groups were mainly composed of guitars, drums, keyboard, vocals, and occasionally fiddle or xylophone. Some enjoyed brief popularity on the local Cambodian music circuit at the time, while others remained regional obscurities. The majority of this music was never reissued digitally, and therefore lived and died on cassette. Includes performances by Kieng Yuthhan, Darkie, Klan Han, Meas Samon, Sinn Sisamouth, Son Thoeung, Eueng Nary, Pen Ran, Wat Phnom Orchestra, Golden Dragon Band, Prum Manh, Ros Sereysothea, Dara Chomchan, and Chhoun Vanna, as well as several tracks by unknown performers." - Sublime Frequencies.

Four years later, Parallel World reissued this compilation on CD with a few extra tracks, but still without any identifying information. Unfortunately, it is more than likely that many of the featured musicians, showing a definite Western influence in their music, were murdered by the Khmer Rouge regime which took over power in 1975. Certainly none of them ever received any money from the sales of this compilation. However, the music is wonderful, and here it is for your enjoyment." - WFMU..

Title: Cant Stop It - Australian Post-Punk 1978-82
Format: CD
Label: Chapter Music
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
�??A long overdue compilation of Australias incredible post-punk history, featuring the finest selection of bands from the period 1978-82, with many previously unreleased tracks. This is a fantastically inventive and dynamic time in Australian music history, a time when Australia stepped out of the shadow of overseas influence and asserted its own musical identity for the first time. All of the bands on Cant Stop It! released their music independently, either themselves or through the handful of visionary labels of the time such as Au-go-go, M Squared, Missing Link or Innocent Records. Unfortunately much of the music has since been ignored or forgotten ... until now!�?� Restock/repress of this incredibly well done, indepth and legit comp (which has since received a full page write up in the WIRE) of the elusive Australian scene. Features The Moodists, Voigt 465, The Take, Essendon Airport, The Apartments, Ash Wednesday, Primitive Calculators, Makers Of The Dead Travel Fast, Ron Rude, Xero, The Limp, Fabulous Marquises, The Slugfuckers, Equal Local, Tame Omearas, The Particles, People With Chairs Up Their Noses, Wild West, The Pits and Tch Tch Tch.

"Remember all those rock magazines with covers proclaiming that "rock is dead!"? Remember that girl at the party who told you that the guitar was "played out" and "too limited?" Thankfully there are people in this world like MR. CHERRYSTONES who patiently waited to rock a psychedelic block party from London to NYC with his new compilation Cherrystones Word. Reflecting his punk rock roots, but coming out at a hip hop angle with an astounding knowledge of music and a native intuition of how to tear shit up in clubs, Cherrystones is the sound of psychedelia-soundtracks-folk-rock-prog-noise-moog-and-library-records. His compilations have a beautiful flow like a radio transmission from planet dada. This personal-journey-by-DJ is genuinely disarming as he uncovers track after track that thrills through being dusted down for fresh consumption, from the Led Zeppelin-esque qualities of DEAD MOON to the crazed, Dylan-like THE DEVIANTS on to the Arthur Lee-ish MIDNIGHT CIRCUS. Debut release on the Tlon Uqbor label, fierce spawn of contemporary psych repository Holy Mountain." - Tlon Uqbar.

Title: Choubi Choubi! Folk & Pop Sounds from Iraq
Format: CD
Label: Sublime Frequencies
Country: USA
Price: $14.50
"Meticulously selected from Iraqi cassettes and LPs found in Syria, Europe and the Iraqi neighborhoods of Detroit, Michigan, this unique collection of folk and pop styles displays a wealth of outstanding music that is exclusive to Iraq and has rarely been showcased abroad. There are many reasons why Iraqi music stands alone in the dynamic world of Arabic music: one example is the unbelievable rapid fire machine-gun rhythms fluttering atop the main tempo. This is the work of a unique nomadic hand drum called the khishba -- also known as the zanbour (Arabic for "wasp"). A style prominently featured here is the infamous Iraqi choubi -- a driving rhythmic style that can include fiddles, double reeded instruments, percussion, bass, keyboards and oud over its signature beat. Other styles featured are the basta (an urban Baghdadi style), the bezikh , and the pulsating hecha . Also heard is the mawal -- a vocal improv that sets the tone of a song, regardless of the style. Additionally there are three cuts from Jaafar Hassan s 1970s record, Lets Sing Together . Being a folk-rock record, its a true anomaly for Iraq. Hassan was a mouthpiece for the Iraqi Socialist movement just a few years before Saddam Hussein . But most of the music in this collection was produced during the Saddam period between the 1980s and 2002. Since the 2003 invasion and the wholesale disassembly of the country, classic tracks like these may already be part of a disappeared past." - Sublime Frequencies.

Title: Choubi Choubi! Folk & Pop Sounds from Iraq Vol. 2
Format: Double LP
Label: Sublime Frequencies
Country: USA
Price: $28.00
"In 2005, Sublime Frequencies released Choubi Choubi: Folk and Pop Sounds from Iraq, and in the ensuing years it has become one of the most beloved and venerable titles in their catalog. Now almost 10 years later, this highly-anticipated second volume is finally here. Compiler and producer Mark Gergis has once again put forth a revelatory and poignant collection of Iraqs national folk music. What has happened to Iraq since the 2003 U.S. invasion and eventual occupation? Endless death, destruction and chaos, the complete take-down of a functional and sovereign secular government (regardless of your opinion on that government), puppet installations, contrived sectarian divisions, the wholesale looting of culture, rampant opportunism, and apparently no lessons learned -- all at the Iraqi peoples expense. Naturally, music has continued to be produced in Iraq -- however, since 2003, musicians and artists have been consistently targeted and attacked by extremists, who have also bombed music shops and forced the closing of venues and music halls. The musical style most prominently focused on in this volume is the infamous Iraqi choubi, (pronounced choe-bee), with its distinct driving rhythm that feature fiddles, double-reed instruments, bass, keyboards, and oud over its signature beat. Choubi is Iraqs version of the regionally popular dabke, another celebratory Levantine folkloric style of rhythm and line dance. What really defines the Iraqi choubi sound are the crisp, rapid-fire machine-gun style percussive rhythms set atop the main beat. To the uninitiated, they sound almost electronic. Sometimes they are, but more often this is the work of the khishba -- a unique hand-drum of nomadic origin (aka the zanbour -- Arabic for wasp), which appears across the board in many styles of Iraqi music today, with extensions of it also heard in Syrian and Kuwaiti music. Among other styles featured in this volume are Iraqs legendary brand of mawal -- an ornamental vocal improvisation that sets the tone of a song, regardless of the style, and the outstanding Iraqi hecha, with its lumbering and determined rhythm pulsing beneath sad, antagonized vocals -- as heard on tracks A4 and B2. The tracks on this collection were produced during the Saddam era -- between the 1980s and early-2000s. An important goal within the Iraqi Baathist agenda was to promote its brand of secularism, which saw the establishment of cultural centers, and a fostering of the arts. Music was more encouraged, albeit more institutionalized than ever -- particularly folkloric and heritage music such as choubi. In an Iraqi army comprised of seven divisions, Saddam referred to singers as the eighth. Still, unless a rare level of stardom has been achieved, being a singer or musician isnt usually encouraged or viewed as a respectable lifestyle in much of the Arab world. Its often those deemed social outsiders that tend to find their niche in music -- particularly the "party music" heard on this collection. Among them are the Rom Gypsy Iraqis (known as Kawliya in Arabic). A number of female singers wear masks and adopt pseudonyms to protect their identities, as some are runaways or prostitutes making ends meet in the seedy nightclub scene. Occasionally, they end up with successful recording careers. Sajida Obeid, who has appeared on both volumes of Choubi Choubi! is an example of a talented Kawliya singer from the nightclub scene of the 1980s who rose to choubi infamy in Baghdad. Choubi inevitably invokes tawdry connotations within Iraqi society (cheap nightclubs for the lower classes, outcast gypsies and singing prostitutes), but in fact, many calibers of Iraqi singers and ensembles have recorded and performed the music. Unofficially, choubi can be called the national dance of Iraq. Though some may deny this claim (mostly due to its reputation and stigma), at most Iraqi weddings youll find people from all walks flaunting their best choubi moves. Iraqi music has always had a way of transcending religious groups and ethnicity, collectively shared between Arabs, Kurds, Assyrians and myriad other Iraqi minorities. In 2013 sadly, this diversity and unity within Iraq is increasingly fragmented, but traditions continue throughout the internationally displaced diaspora. Limited edition 2LP set in a heavy gatefold jacket with beautiful artwork and liner notes by Mark Gergis." - Sublime Frequencies.

Title: Classroom Projects: Incredible Music Made by Children in Schools
Format: LP
Label: Trunk
Country: UK
Price: $19.00
"Trunk presents a beautiful compilation of rare and brilliant music made by children in schools. The album features some incredible sounds -- from charming folk songs to full blown avant-garde experiments. Many of these recordings are exceptionally scarce (some selling for close to £1000 these days) and its unlikely anyone will have heard any of these since they were first recorded. Recordings made by British children are hardly ever heard. Over the last few decades some schools went to the trouble of privately pressing their own LPs for plays, concerts or celebration -- and with very mixed results. Jonny Trunk has collected these scarce UK recordings and compiled the very best ones for Classroom Projects, the first collection of its kind, presenting recordings made between 1959 and 1981. As well as excellent small group versions of traditional songs, there are specially written instrumentals, covers of Italian composer Scarlatti and even songs about drunk driving. Also, we have work encouraged by John Paynter, a free-thinker, educator and true maverick. Part of the University Of York music department, he not only believed that music lessons at school were of the upmost importance, but he also introduced pupils to the modern composers of the post-war period (such as Stockhausen). So instead of music lessons with a group of pupils all blowing the same basic tune on recorders, he encouraged experimentation with tape machines, haiku and creative thought. As a result, some of the recordings on this album sound like conceptual music from Paris in the late 50s, and not from secondary schools in Bedford in 1969. Overall the compilation brings together some inspired musical moments, some unexpected oddness as well as a warm rush of nostalgia as the small choir from St. Brandons School (now closed) sing "Bright Eyes." The CD comes with extensive notes and images of the original albums in an 8-page full-color booklet." -Trunk.

Country: USA
Price: $25.00
“A superb album, compiling electronic synth pop, cold wave and minimal tracks from the Color Tapes label, spanning 1981-1985. The Color Tapes label was the brainchild of a young Gary Ramon after being inspired by cassette labels such as Fuck Off Tapes, Weird Noise and other underground UK labels; also by the music of the late 70s and early 80s such as Cabaret Voltaire, Suicide, Kraftwerk, Depeche Mode, Throbbing Gristle, Fad Gadget, as well as electronic musicians such as John Cage, La Monte Young, Stockhausen, Pierre Henry, Moondog, and others. The tracks from this compilation originally came out only on limited cassette runs of 100 copies sold at gigs, mail order and record shops such as Small Wonder Records. The majority of these tracks from these UK garage cold wave bands used mostly synthesizer, drum machines and sequencers such as EMS VCS3, Minimoog, Korg MS-20, Roland Juno 6, SH-09, TR-808. Remastered from original analogue source tapes by Denis Blackham, this is a must-have collection for electronic, synth and cold wave collectors. Includes a full colour illustrated poster of all the cassette sleeves (70+ releases) made by the label between 1979-1986.” - Color Tapes.

With two bonus tracks not included on the LP version. "Collection of rare UK cold wave tracks taken from Color Tapes label cassettes released in micro editions between 1981-1985. Color Tapes was the brainchild of future Sun Dial leader Gary Ramon: "Living in East London, it was a very grey and bleak time. Huge imposing tower blocks, gasworks and concrete just about everywhere. You couldnt walk through some areas without the risk of being shot at by an air rifle, or worse. Luckily, salvation was in the music. The musical landscape was changing. I saw a very early gig by an unknown all-synth band called Depeche Mode at a dingy pub under a flyover called The Bridge House in Canning Town, London. Following this I saw Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five and started buying records by the likes of Afrika Bambaataa. At the other end of the musical spectrum, we were picking up records by Stockhausen, John Cage, Pierre Henry and Moondog, and combing junk shops for anything else that looked interesting!" The UK cassette scene and DIY ethos were thriving. Color Tapes was born. Home multi-track recorders were luxury items. They had to make do with sound on sound recorders, bouncing between reel-to-reel and cassette machines if they wanted stereo. What youre about to hear for the first time since those days is a snapshot of Color Tapes: released material and other unissued tracks too. This compilation is the first of a series of Color Tapes/Lion Productions releases of material from the Color Tapes archives.” - Color Tapes.

Praise for the series: “Must have collection of English post-punk synth rarities, sourced from the legendary Color Tapes label, remastered by Denis Blackham, all presented on vinyl for the first time! Its highly likely that these tracks have been barely heard beyond their original 100 edition tape pressings in the early 80s, and thusly this is a bit of a treasure trove, especially when considering the quality of the masters. This is the realest deal for people into minimal wave, Dark Entries and OG wave music. Dont sleep!” – Boomkat review. The majority of these tracks from these UK garage cold wave bands used mostly synthesizer, drum machines and sequencers such as EMS VCS3, Minimoog, Korg MS-20, Roland Juno 6, SH-09, TR-808 – so you know how they could sound. These machines today are part of the history of the development of electronic music in the UK." - Lion Productions.

Orridge, is well-known to krautrock collectors as one of a number of engineers working at Stockhausens WDR and Dierks Studio in Cologne in the mid-1970s, where he assisted on recordings by many famous kraut bands such as Can, Birth Control, Mythos and Dzyan. The recordings included here were made between 1972 and 1976 using studios in and around Cologne, produced by Toby Robinson for his own amusement. Bands would come in for practice sessions, to record demos, and during slack periods, impromptu jams would happen. Most of these sessions were recorded by Toby, and they feature Toby himself plus a revolving cast of friends and musicians (some of them apparently big kraut names under pseudonym). Including lost-in-time bands/studio projects like Astral Army, Fuerrote, Spirulina and Baal among others, the music here ranges from killer proto-new wave kraut psych to wild space rock, proto-ambient electronic, dark psychedelia and raw kosmische sounds with lots of analog synths/Moog. It was during that time in Cologne, that Toby, along with Fluxus artist Robin Page, gave birth to the mysterious and controversial Pyramid label, for which these tracks were originally made for. 24-bit domain remaster from the original master tapes. Insert with detailed liner notes by Alan Freeman (Ultima Thule, The Crack In The Cosmic Egg (2007)). Also features: Chronos, Neil Andersen and Ten To Zen.

Title: Cosmic Machine The Sequel: A Voyage Across French Cosmic & Electronic Avantgarde (70s-80s)
Format: CD
Label: Because Music
Country: France
Price: $18.00
“This sequel to the acclaimed Cosmic Machine compilation released in 2013 is another fantastic journey through time and space. At the time musicians were trying to capture the sounds of meteorites entering the terrestrial atmosphere thanks to machines developed by NASA engineers, a new generation of analog synthesizers enabled electronic music composers to take over the charts. It seemed the machines were definitely made to serve a radical avant-garde, and many years later, were glad to be able to listen with this perspective, and most of all -- to dance to it. While moving your feet to Cosmic Machine The Sequel, you might identify Francis Lay, recognized as one of the best music composers in France, as well as Rosebud, who had the audacity to remix the main theme from the movie More, created by Pink Floyd. Youll also find "Les Soucoupes Volantes Vertes" from Heldon, the band led by electronic music visionary Richard Pinhas. Pascal Comelade, a friend of his, and worthy heir of the American minimalism also appears on this record, with a cold electronic sound called "Mouvement Décomposé dUn Coup de Marteau." Arpadys, for their part, make an appearance with a more tribal and spatial track that will make you turn the volume up. Christophes "Harp Odyssey," a track influenced by his collaborations with electronic master Jean-Michel Jarre. The father of electroacoustic music, Pierre Schaeffer used to head the Group of Musical Researches, a real musical laboratory in which both artists have worked together, trying to experiment with new sounds. Finally, the legendary "Pop Corn" instrumental from Anarchic System will bring some nice memories to the surface. Each and every one of the artists present on this compilation has dreamt of getting his one-way ticket to the moon. Some of them have managed to tread upon the land of our satellite, but one thing is for sure: all have participated in the spatial conquest on board of the Cosmic Machine. You have the right to get on it. Also includes tracks by Stereo, Queen Samantha, Nicolas Peyrac, Roger Roger, Video Liszt, Pierre Porte, Grand Prix, The Peppers, Joel Fajerman & Jan Yrssen, Moon Birds, Araxis, Georges Rodi, and Michel Magne.” - Because Music.

Format: Double LP & CD

Country: France
Price: $39.00
"At the start of the 70s, France had no petrol, but it had ideas and artists that managed to tip them into the 21st century a full 30 years in advance. Cosmic Machine compiles 20 rare tracks put together with passion and erudition by Uncle O (who previously did the Shaolin Soul compilations) and throws together a collection of stars, a few free-spirits, and also shooting stars. This group of people dont form a scene per se, theyre more like a collection of individuals who, through sheer ingenuity and with all their singularity, managed to break down the barriers between pop and experimental to give birth to a mutant variety of electronic music that owes as much to mobile discos as sound illustration, to the GRM, to the Bogdanoff brothers, to Métal Hurlant, and the European Space Program. Cosmic Machine is a panoramic dive into this epic era when the synthesizer was mans best friend and when the future had a future: our present time. Daft Punk, Air, Justice, Zombie Zombie, or Add N To (X), Stereolab, and Broadcast werent born in incubators. The electric fairy stood above their cradle and theyre all the children of these French pioneers who were among the first to celebrate the union of flesh and circuits. Androids, robots, humans and other celestial creatures, now board the Cosmic Machine. Artists include: Patrick Juvet, Didier Marouani, Droids, François De Roubaix, Space, Universal Energy, Pierre Bachelet, Space Art, The Atomic Crocus, Jean Michel Jarre, Bernard Fevre, Cerrone, Frederic Mercier, Quartz, Rene Roussel, Serge Gainsbourg, Dvwb, Alain Goraguer, Jean-Jacques Perrey, and Rockets." - Because Music.

Title: Cottage Industrial Volume 3
Format: CDR
Label: Humbug
Country: Norway
Price: $11.00
"Third instalment of our eclectic compilation series, fully sucked to capacity at 79:59, though theres "only" 17 tracks this time. You get two tracks from norwegian duo RYFYLKE (Humbug releases an LP with them sometime in 2005!), bristling with heavy frequencies. A sample of up-close "selbstverprügelung" and subtle barnyard heckling from unidentified mental patients RAIONBASHI. Crude electronics from WAWA. A glacial and feverish meditation for metals, springs, radio and wire hangers by ORANGE, MANIFOLD. SINISTRI are sculptors of molten pulses and charged convulsions, look out for their album on the Häpna label in the spring. Theres two tracks from PH�? - a short blast taken from "This is Handiwork" CD + a live track from Rhiz in Wien where the boys are fronted by one Didi Bruckmayr in best maniacal form. Also from Italy (along with Sinistri) are OvO, hot on the heels of their fully cracked jamz of the live tape on Imvated. This trackss for guitar and whistles, Stefania and Bruno captured here in full stereo sound. WOODEN WAND & SATYA SAI BABA exhales and hits a strident rock chord, trances out, lays it bare. "Wet Margarete" by EXCEPTER is a keening call to hush things down, before the gorgeous slow movements of LUNTs "You Keep Me Unafraid", a daydreaming haze of crystalline guitar loops. MASKINANLEGG tests your stereo output, while MOTHs "Ohne Titel" (the final Moth recording), draws to a fried conclusion with subliminal hum and skeletal buzzes. ANDERS HANAs piece is quiet and poised, barely pinches the skin. VIOLETS ROCK N ROLL suggests in the crudest of terms you better get the hell out of here, and finally IDEA FIRE COMPANY offers a salute to the weary listener with the epic 11-minute "Heroes".Comes in a heavy full colour cardboard packaging, stupefying "pensjonist" themed artwork, an insert and a sticker.

Title: Crystal Flowers
Format: LP
Label: Mathew-Rec
Country: Germany
Price: $29.00
"The Crystal Flowers compilation is a transposition of Florine Stettheimers poems (published posthumously by her sister Ettie in a limited edition volume titled Crystal Flowers in 1949) into song or other vocal interpretation by Karl Holmqvist/Stefan Tcherepnin, Lorraine OGrady, Dignity Sister, Ei Arakawa/Sergei Tcherepnin, DJ Complicated, Jutta Koether, Dan Fox, Megan Francis Sullivan, David Lieske, Kim Gordon, Fanki And The Frogs, Bogdan Mooczkowsky/Vilde von Krigh/Mikael D. Brkic and Steven Warwick/Magnus Schaefer." -Mathew-Rec. "I associate Florine Stettheimer with moving to the city to begin art school, with making a friend, and struggling to find a motive in history that I could relate to, something to project into. During the late 90s, in a surprisingly homophobic and theoretically stale New York art school atmosphere, to come upon the scenes Florine Stettheimer painted offered secret elation and a sense of kinship. Flipping through issues of Charles Henri Fords View Magazine in the library, I came upon Virgil Thompsons "Portrait of Florine Stettheimer," a musical composition as portrait, which, like Gertrude Steins portraits in text, aimed for something like an affectionate caricature of someone considered a peer. This encounter with Florine Stettheimer seen through the lens of musical notation, reminded me of the charge of so many first encounters: the way in which the new "object" remains opaque yet also shimmeringly open, illegible, like a sheet of music, but not withholding. Ken Okiishi and I made a record on which each of us performed a sight-reading of Thompsons portrait on the piano. The effect was awkward, amateurish -- interpretation gave out under the technical challenge of simply trying to play the unknown piece -- in some sense magnifying the tensions and pitfalls inherent in trying to invoke Stettheimer, or anybody. Some years later, Ken found a copy of Crystal Flowers, and we were both thrilled to read the poems and the texts written as tho from a diary in the voice of Florine Stettheimer -- to find that like her paintings, the poems are so present. Stylized, ornate, jazzy, sharp, wistful, sugary -- the poems jubilantly synthesize in Stettheimers unmistakeable tone the pleasures, pangs, and aspirations of a life in culture. It seemed to lie on the hand for these poems to find other voices, or the response that they call out for at this point in time, perhaps as a way to measure the difference. I wanted to re-publish this small volume, intended for Florines friends and the friends of her paintings, in a warped way, and landed on the form of an LP collection of songs and voice tracks by various individuals interpreting or refracting the text. While some of the people I invited already knew Florines work very well, for others this was an entirely new encounter." -Nick Mauss.

Title: Cybernetic Serendipity Music
Format: LP
Label: The Vinyl Factory
Country: UK
Price: $40.00
"Reissue of the Institute of Contemporary Arts groundbreaking compilation Cybernetic Serendipity Music, originally released in 1968 to coincide with their exhibition "Cybernetic Serendipity," which proved to be a landmark in the history of audio/visual art, and the first exhibition of its kind in the UK devoted to the relationship between music and early computers. Both unique and extraordinarily influential, Cybernetic Serendipity Music captured a nascent scene on the cusp of a synth-led electronic revolution and was the only compilation of its kind to bring together the musicians, composers and inventors pushing the boundaries of early computer music on one record, a good six years before Kraftwerks Autobahn changed modern music forever. It documented a frontier spirit where pre-eminent composers John Cage and Iannis Xenakis rubbed shoulders with the likes of Peter Zinovieff, the founder of EMS and inventor of the game-changing VCS3 synthesizer, with music that was either composed by computers or, in Zinovieffs case, even performed by them. With only a handful of copies pressed and exclusively available from the ICA at the original exhibition, Cybernetic Serendipity Music has long held Holy Grail status among collectors and enthusiasts of early electronics, with the original record, on the rare occasions it becomes available, often changing hands for upwards of £150. Now to mark their forthcoming archival exhibition of "Cybernetic Serendipity" in the Institutes Fox Reading Room, The Vinyl Factory are teaming up with the ICA to reissue Cybernetic Serendipity Music on vinyl for the first time since 1968, faithfully reproducing the artwork -- taken from one of Peter Zinovieffs visual scores -- housed in a Garrod & Lofthouse-style sleeve in an edition of 500 copies." - The Vinyl Factory.

Title: D-I-Y: Do It Yourself
Format: Double LP
Label: Soul Jazz
Country: UK
Price: $22.50
...The Rise of the Independent Music Industry After Punk. The enclosed booklet for the LP set is done in a newsprint punk-fanzine style! "Do It Yourself charts the rise of the independent music industry after punk - from the hundreds of bands and tiny labels that sprung up with like-minded ideals, to the network of shops, manufacturers, studios, printers etc, all connected via a loose network of record distributors that would help define independent music over the following thirty years. Beginning with The Buzzcocks Spiral Scratch EP released in early 1977, on the newly formed New Hormones label, in Manchester, it soon seemed that every town in Britain had its own music scene complete with bands, small labels, record shops and studios. Directly influenced by the ideals of punk - self-determination, freedom of expression, etc - as much as the music meant that these bands were interested in alternatives to the status quo in managing their careers. This meant finding new ways of getting their music heard outside of the mainstream music industry. It also meant new ways of making music away from the traditional guitar, bass, drums and vocals line-up of rock bands. The reasons for these two factors would be sometimes practical (they couldnt get signed/they couldnt play) and sometimes ideological. Pivotal to the development of the scene was the Rough Trade Records shop run by music fan Geoff Travis." - Soul Jazz. "The first records I remember bands bringing into the shop were The Buzzcocks Spiral Scratch, Scritti Politti Skank Bloc Bologna and The Desperate Bicycles. Rough Trade Records had started as a second-hand record shop. In 1977 customers began to bring their own newly pressed-up records into the shop, Travis soon began distributing the records to a handful of like-minded shops throughout the country. This developed into a network and bands soon found they could sell 1000s of their own records with no marketing, management, agents etc. At first, the records were all coming from people bringing in music to Rough Trade in London, but soon new bands would turn up at their local store with their locally-pressed record and this led to the emergence of a music scene in each town. All the bands on this record released their music independently, either themselves or on a small label. Some went on to be incredibly famous and others didnt. This record celebrates all factions and discusses the social and economic conditions that allowed independent music to thrive in the years to follow up to the present day. It comes complete with interviews with label owners, bands, studios, mastering and pressing plants and even printers!" - Geoff Travis.

Title: Dabke -- Sounds Of The Syrian Houran
Format: LP
Label: Sham Palace
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Dabke is the celebratory music and dance found throughout the Levantine Middle East. By the mid-1990s, a new wave of high-energy electronic dabke music had emerged -- to be heard at weddings, parties and cassette-stalls region-wide. New wave dabke was first introduced to Western ears by way of Omar Souleyman and his northeastern Syrian sounds. This collection presents a hypnotic and diverse selection of electrified dabke dance cuts from a region in the south of Syria known as the Houran. The Houran refers to a swathe of south Syria and northwestern Jordan, beginning just below Damascus, and encompassing the Syrian cities of Daraa, Suweida, Bosra and the Golan Heights. Its populations include Syrians, Bedouin, Druze, Palestinians and Jordanians -- and this unique confluence of cultures is evident throughout these tracks. Hourani dabke is relentless and commanding, driven by heavy rhythms and weaving synthesizers. Long passages of intense musical fervor are punctuated by fierce male vocals, belting out calls for the audience to dance, alongside the lyrical laments and tributes to love and lust. But the sound of the Houran is best defined by the mejwiz -- a double-reed bamboo flute famed for its droney overtones as well as shrill, buzzing melodic lines achieved by circular breathing techniques. Historically, Hourani dabke was played with mejwiz, hand percussion and narrative vocal chants. Electronic beats have inevitably embellished the contemporary sound, magnifying the intensity -- and the mejwiz players have taken their craft to the microphone, in order to maintain the instruments prominence over the resulting volume. The sampled mijwiz sound has its own specific qualities and in recent years, can even be heard in combination with its organic counterpart. The recordings featured in this collection were captured live to the mixing desk during weddings and parties throughout the Houran during the 1990s and 2000s, and represent a mere sliver of the sounds found in tape and disc vendors throughout the region. Limited pressing of 1,000." -Sham Palace.

Format: Double LP
Label: Cacophonic
Country: UK
Price: $28.00
"The roots of electronic dance music by definition. An unlikely combination of early recordings by international electronic and avant-garde composers as well as infrequent collaborators retrospectively unified by their commitment to the musical enhancement of 20th-century ballet and the evolution of modern dance. Presenting key exponents of the musique concrète and tape music movements alongside masters of the early electric sound synthesizers, as well as pre/anti-electronic instrument designers with non-conformist and microtonal composers, Danse Sacrale reveals a broad range of truly revolutionary musical and academic advancements that found an improbable, sporadic, and vibrant creative outlet via one of Europes proudest and most sacred cultural institutions. Featuring composers Pierre Henry, Lasry-Baschet, Igor Wakhevitch, Henk Badings, Jean-Claude Vannier, Remi Gassmann, Alwin Nikolais, and Karl-Birger Blomdahl alongside choreographers like Béjart, Balanchine, and Yvonne Georgi, Danse Sacrale unites the unanimously lauded and the relatively unknown with some of their earliest and underexposed achievements. These rare and remastered compositions provide a concise retrospective of a previously undocumented global phenomenon and a global synergy that formed the true foundations of electronic dance music and changed the perceptions of modern music and dance culture in the stern face of adversity and tradition." - Cacophonic.

Title: Der Zeltweg - Italian Tapes Industrial Music 1982-1984 Volume 2
Format: LP
Label: Mannequin
Country: Germany
Price: $28.00
RSD 2016 release. 160-gram LP. Limited edition of 500. "The second volume of Der Zeltweg - Italian Tapes Industrial Music 1982-1984, documenting the legendary Musumecis Der Zeltweg tape label, which existed for a few years in the early 80s. While the A-side collects music produced by some of Musumecis side projects (Errata-S-Corrige, Gasdehyde, Herpes-Z) introduced in the first volume of Der Zeltweg (2015) (plus a previously unreleased early Musumeco studio track), the B-side contains the first full reissue of the Il Fantasma della Libertà tape by The Psychopathic Blossom (Der Zeltweg 002), an unexpected, experimental guitar-bass-noise album permeated with Italian-language philosophical declamations and short, pulsating rhythms. For a brief moment Turin was Italys Sheffield, producing an astonishing number of DIY electronic groups. In the context of a wider Europe, Italy has never been thought of as a hotbed of minimal electronic music, but Mannequins Danza Meccanica: Italian Synth Wave compilations have shone a light on a scene that was relatively unknown even within Italys borders. Musumeci is one of the labels most obscure discoveries, but its combined reissue of Musumecis two super-rare demo tapes (MNQ 042LP, 2013) was just the beginning. The mission is now terminated with the second volume of Der Zeltweg - Italian Tapes Industrial Music 1982-1984. Mastered by Rude 66. Graphics by Alessandro Adriani with the help of Lee Douglas." - Mannequin.

Title: Des Jeunes Gens Mödernes: Post Punk, Cold Wave et Culture Növö en France, 1978-1983 Volume 2
Format: CD
Label: Born Bad
Country: France
Price: $16.00
"The long-awaited follow-up to Des Jeunes Gens Mödernes (BORNBAD 012LP, 2008), with five killer previously unreleased tracks. Volume 2 continues to explore the vaults of French post-punk, electropop, and no wave. Between the late 70s and mid 80s, in the wake of punk wave and in parallel to other types of music like disco, funk, ska, and reggae, a prolific and chaotic music scene began to develop in France, combining the energy of rock and the nihilism of punk with electronic experimentation. The period was not, on the whole, one of optimism and joy, played out as it was against a background of economic crisis and the cold war. A whole section of Frances youth found itself confronted by the contradictions of the times it was living in: young people were torn between the sensation of living on the edge of an abyss and hope for the dawning of a new world; they were deprived of tangible ideological landmarks but resistant to the post-hippy utopias of the previous generation. In search of an identity, they recognized themselves in the dark lyrics, the cold synthetic music, and the laid-back attitude of the new groups bursting up all over the country, as much in the provinces as in Paris. Des Jeunes Gens Mödernes (Modern Young Men) reactivates this French post-punk/novo diskö/new- and cold-wave scene, highlighting a cross-section of the specific creative diversity of this scene. The new wave drew upon artistic avant-garde movements from the past (Constructivism, Futurism, symbolism, Dadaism, socialist realism, and so on), as well as literature (Romanticism, science fiction, etc.), cinema (new wave, German expressionist cinema), and the latest technological advances (electronic, robotic, nuclear). Drawing on traditional culture as well as the underground subcultures to which various magazines and fanzines gave voice (American countercultures; endless references to William S. Burroughs, for example; pop art, etc.), the new wave embraced all areas of creativity together, and built bridges between the different artistic disciplines (music, visual art, design, literature, cinema...) to an extent never before seen. Digipak CD includes 32-page booklet. Includes tracks by ADN Ckrystall, X Ray Pop, Eli & Jacno, Les Fils De Joie, Les Stagiaires, Medikao, La Bande Au Col Roule, Radio Romance, A.R.T, KaS Product, Frantz Kultur & Les Krames, Meca Rythm, and Perspective Nevski." - Born Bad.

Format: 7"
Label: Difficult Fun
Country: UK
Price: $6.00
"The Difficult Fun compilation introduces an additional 3 equally adventurous bands and repeated visits to difficultfun.org had me pretty keyed-up to get my hands on a copy. Sharing the A side with Antifamily, Philosophy Queen bring a fractured drop in fidelity to beautifully render a fragile and hazy display of emotion, "Lucy" a.k.a. "defeat is not important/defeat is not unimportant" is a rough-hewn gem. For the flip, Hellogabalus celebrate the damaged acoustic sonorities of their instruments. Then the brilliant Asja Auf Capri round things out with a tempered strut of Zick Zack/Ata Tak but without all the pomp and pose of the Neue Deutsche Welle. The packaging is a kit composed of six parts that beg interaction and offer a multiplicity by design. A card inserted into my copy includes a phrase that I think might be Marxist in origin. This is so much more fun than the bulk of what hits the singles rack these days." - AG, Other Music.

Title: DIY Canons
Format: Double CD
Label: Pogus
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"The pieces on this CD are all based on the ideas in Larry Polanskys four voice canons, a series of pieces he began in 1975. These canons are usually mensuration canons, which means that the tempi of successive voices is proportional to their start times, so that the voices end together. They also use simple ideas of moving through a list of permutations, and applying the elements of those permutations to various musical parameters. A set of Polanskys canons was produced on Cold Blue Records as four voice canons. Polansky described these ideas in Four Voice Canon #13 (DIY Canon), a kind of open-source meta-canon score. He distributed this at talks and on the web as an open invitation to others who wanted to make four voice canons of their own. Composers responded with a wide variety of variations on the basic idea; a selection of these works is presented here." - Simon Wickham-Smith, curator.

Title: Doppeldoppelgänger
Format: Double LP
Label: Shelter Press
Country: France
Price: $31.00
"Doppeldoppelgänger, a compilation of tracks by poets and sound artists selected by David le Simple and Vincent Romagny, was created on the occasion of the three-exhibition Doppelgänger cycle at the Centre Européen dActions Artistiques Contemporaines, Strasbourg, France, curated by Romagny. The double LP is a purely subjective compilation of sound works by artists (Félicia Atkinson, bruant&spangaro), sound from films by artists (David Lamelas), sound poetry and performances (John Giorno, Karl Holmqvist, Lisa Holzer & David Jourdan), works by cult composers (Benjamin Britten, Jean-François Pauvros, Gérard Pesson, Jean-Claude Vannier), legendary groups (Deux Filles), unclassifiables (Potima Zen Neumann, Joiejoiejoie), and specially-recorded reprises, including Aidons Antoine mixing Karl Holmqvist, Melissa Saint-Pierre reprising Colin McPhee, Anne Steffens and Don Niño performing Kurt Weill, and David le Simple mixing "Minh singt seine Sehnsucht." The album reflects the same concern that drove the exhibitions of the Doppelgänger cycle -- avoidance of thematic and formal constraints in pursuance of shifts in the concept of the "double" -- plus a grounding in literary texts, which are represented by quotations to be found on the sleeve. Gérard Pesson transcribes Brahmss Fourth Ballade from memory years after hearing the work (Nebenstück, 1998); Robert Rauschenberg reads, along with other artist friends of John Giorno, from the latters Pornographic Poem (Raspberry/Pornographic Poem LP, The Intravenus Mind, 1967). 160-gram LP in gatefold sleeve with artwork by Karl Holmqvist and David Jourdan.

Title: Eat The Dream: Gnawa Music From Essaouira
Format: LP
Label: Sublime Frequencies
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"This record was originally released on CD as Eat The Dream: Moroccan Reveries On Tinder Records In 1996 (Tinder CD 42825032). Original label out of business/CD out-of-print. Recorded and compiled by Tucker Martine in 1994, the bulk of this album features the magnificent results of a chance meeting between Martine and the late, great master of Gnawa music, Maâllem Boubker Ghania (1927-2000), who kindly offered to organize a several-day informal recording session in his home. Martine began rolling tape as musicians came and went throughout the sessions. These spectacular recordings from Essaouira Morocco are interwoven here with other encounters, including a wedding procession in the streets of Marrakech, snake charmers of the Jemma El Fna with their rhaitas, calls to prayer with children playing while James Brown echoed off of the labyrinthian walls, Moroccan radio dial surfing and more. The Gnawa are a mystical brotherhood whose ancestors migrated from West Africa to North Africa approximately 500 years ago. After integrating into the local Berber and Arabic societies, a unique cultural blend resulted which is reflected in their music. Their complex liturgy borrows both from the traditions of mystical Islam and African Shamanism. The Gnawas trance-inducing music accompanies rituals such as the healing of psychic disorders and scorpion stings, Ramadan celebrations and animal sacrifice. Participants in these all-night rituals are invited into an ecstatic state. The primary instruments of this tradition are the krakebs (a pair of metal clappers) and the guimbri (or sintir), a three-stringed lute with a camel skin covering and a body carved from a log. The one short string and two long strings are made of goat gut. Limited edition LP housed in a heavy-duty tip-on jacket with an insert containing additional photos of the musicians and Tucker Martines liner notes." -Sublime Frequencies.

Price: $24.00
"For centuries, the Jemaa El Fna (Rendezvous of the Dead) has remained the stage for one of the most spectacular social forums on the planet. By day, this central square in the city of Marrakesh, one of Moroccos great imperial cities, fosters a kaleidoscope of entertainment for its local inhabitants; storytellers, acrobats, magicians and snake charmers all create intriguing displays of bewitching spectacle. As the sun sets, the evening grows frantic with the pulse of the crowd; it is then that the night musicians set up. Free from the restrictions and expectations of light entertainment for a tourist crowd, these musicians manifest ecstatic performances that animate the audience and players alike. The groups represented on this album; Troupe Majidi, Amal Saha, and Mustapha Mahjoub, are working and carrying the torch of their musical heroes nightly in the square. These songs come from the repertoire of Moroccos greatest musical exports: Nass El Ghiwane, Lemchaheb, Jil Jilala, Larssad, and many others from the Chaabi (Moroccan popular music) canon and are given a raw, emotional and fiery interpretation. Instruments are powered by car batteries and blown out through megaphone speakers. These recordings represent a rare opportunity to hear this music at such close proximity taking in all the power and passion of the performances. The raw fidelity captures an unflinching immersion of what is simply some of the greatest street music on earth. Recorded by Hisham Mayet in 2005, a few of these performances were featured in his film Musical Brotherhoods From The Trans-Saharan Highway (SF 041DVD). This collection also contains tracks not present in the film for a more potent snapshot of the ecstatic Jemaa El Fna.

Title: Electric Voice Compilation II
Format: LP
Label: Electric Voice
Country: Canada
Price: $24.00
"On this deluxe compilation, Electric Voice Records offers another exploration of historical and contemporary underground music. Whereas last years collection focused on alternative approaches to electronic pop music, this new album mines a darker spectrum of genres, one that spans more than three decades of minimalist synth and industrial work. Here, new-generation artists like TROPIC OF CANCER and MARTIAL CANTEREL extend rather than revive the music of their influences. Electric Voice II marries these young artists with pioneers from the beginning days of this music-truly groundbreaking acts like IKE YARD Yard, the first American band to sign with Factory Records, and Throbbing Gristle / Psychic TVs enigmatic GENESIS BREYER P-ORRIDGE, now performing some of her most poignant material to date as THEE MAJESTY. Other featured artists include DAS DING and French group MARTIN DUPONT, who both offer cuts from their respective early-80s archives. There are also exclusive tracks by ADN CKRYSTALL, FRANK (JUST FRANK), VITA NOCTIS and NINE CIRCLES. Taken together, the seamless flow of these tracks, despite the span of generations, makes clear the continued relevance of these practices and pure electronic sounds. To celebrate this collection, acclaimed artist JUAN MENDEZ (Silent Servant) provides cover artwork, with additional design by DMYTRIJ WULFFIUS." - Electric Voice.

Title: Ende Vom Lied - East German Underground Sound 1979 - 1990
Format: CD
Label: Play Loud!
Country: Germany
Price: $16.00
"Ende Vom Lied is a genre-spanning collection of punk, post-punk and avant-garde bands from the former East Germany, chronicling the work of free spirits pitted against government restraints and implied genre limitations. The underground scene in the German Democratic Republic was a hydra, a noisy mix of musicians, poets, painters, photographers, filmmakers, punks and freaks. In the immediate aftermath of the primal scream that was punk, music often bred with poetry or painting in short-lived liaisons or enduring collaborations to produce a new generation of bastard genres. With the lines blurring between forms, a search for new shapes began. In the German Democratic Republic, this search constituted a tightrope walk, a dance for expression between subculture and a dictatorship. In German, Ende Vom Lied literally translates to "The end of the song", but is more commonly understood as a saying roughly meaning "The upshot", "The end of the story" or simply "The end". Ende Vom Lied features: Ornament & Verbrechen, Grabnoct, LAttentat, Der Schwarze Kanal, 3tot, Der Demokratische Konsum, T42, Happy Straps, Planlos, Sendeschluß, Zwitschermaschine, Aufruhr Zur Liebe, Andreas Auslauf, Rosa Extra, AG Geige, The Local Moon, Fett, Herbst In Peking, Magdalene Keibel Combo, BAADER, Klick & Aus, Der Expander Des Fortschritts and Pffft...." - Play Loud!

"I released my best masterpiece LP "La Flor De MI Tulpa" in 2014. Because it was extremely splendid music, I wanted to pile up many other experience before beginning my music of the next. Experience that is interesting for new idea is necessary. I just enjoyed live performance of splendid rock band "Aka" frequently, at that time. Because I wanted to listen to music of Aka by vinyl, I started the plan of Espernaza De OTO Vol.2 immediately. And I have begun to look for artists who offer splendid music.
"Midorita Rokunotake" is a great SSW in Fukuoka-ken Japan. He has very beautiful voice. And Tadasuke Iwanaga (The leader of mamitori Ulithi empress yonaguni san) plays drums and other instruments in Midoritas song.
Bicho Pablo is a genius Chilean SSW. He recorded many albums so far. However, he is still not well known because he doesnt release physical release so far. We can listen to his song on turntable by this LP! Rin Eric is a great SSW in California. Because he likes my LP "La Flor De Mi Tulpa" very much, we did collaboration this time. I attached some instruments and backing vocal to his song.
Kenji Kariu is the leader of the progressive jazz rock band "OWKMJ". He recorded his solo song. It is a nice pop song. "Aka" is a great rock band in Nagoya city Japan. They do the performance that is very pure, and is beautiful.
"Mamitori Ulithi empress yonaguni san" is the band who included me. All members except me are geniuses. They released their 3rd LP that is a best masterpiece LP of the world, in 2012. And Bruit Direct Disques released their live LP recently because their 3rd LP is really great. Their unreleased song is included in this V.A LP.
"Bon Voyage" is a mystery artist. I recorded his beautiful acoustic guitar by my reel to reel tape deck.
"Munca" is a great Bolivian musician. He has nice senses of melody and arrangement. He recorded new song for this V.A LP. "Aritomo" is me. I recorded 2 songs for this LP.
This LP has hand-made sleeve and 5 info sheets that are about each artist. If you get any nice sense when you listen to this LP, I am glad." - Aritomo

Title: Ethnic Minority Music of North Vietnam
Format: CD
Label: Sublime Frequencies
Country: USA
Price: $15.50
"This is the third volume in a series of tribal village music compiled by Laurent Jenneau from his continual journeys into the more remote tribal areas of Southeast Asia, featuring field recordings of the Giay, Lu, Red Zao, and Black Hmong peoples from North Vietnam. The five selections presented here by the Red Zao are of an unusual vocal style called Baozoo. The Baozoo singing technique can either be a responsive song, or canon singing where a lead singer has his or her words repeated with delay by one, two or three singers. Youve never heard anything quite like it before. The instruments used in other selections include kheng (bamboo mouth organ), jews harp, bamboo sticks with coins, and the piem zat (a reed instrument or oboe affiliated with Baozoo singing). Recorded in and around Sapa, this CD includes an extended track list with added information about each track recorded along with insightful liner notes by Laurent Jenneau with an excerpt included here: "The Lu are the most mysterious to me. First Im easily impressed by people who have radically different beauty criteria; their way to blacken their teeth with a thick layer of black stuff makes every smile special. They seem to have been established in northwest Vietnam since the 12th century. The Giay, like the Lu or Lao, belong to the Tay Kadai language group. They are well established in northern parts of Vietnam and Laos, but emigrated from China 200 years ago. They have three styles of singing for different occasions; for a feast, for night drinking or to sing farewell to someone." - Sublime Frequencies

"For the first time ever from this part of the world, here is a recording that documents the ceremonial animist music from the mysterious tribal villages of Northeast Cambodia. The Tampoans, Krungs, Kavets, Braos, and Jaraîs of Ratanakiri Province and the Phnongs in Mondolkiri Province have been living amidst each other in this region for centuries, preserving and expanding their unique cultural heritage, sometimes at peace and other times in conflict with one another or with foreign invaders. The music includes hypnotic gong ensembles, guitar ballads, bamboo flute and unique local instrumentation such as the gungteng (a 10-string instrument comprised of a bamboo tube holding 10 metallic strings with a dried gourd as resonator) and the mum (a unique one-string Krung instrument bowed with a bamboo using the mouth as a resonator, attached by a string between the instrument and the mouth). The superb singing styles and vocals present throughout are absolutely mesmerizing. These tracks sound like nothing youve heard before, all magnificently documented, transporting the listener into the heart of each performance. Recorded on location by Laurent Jenneau over a 2-year period from 2003-2005 with his revealing liner notes and a detailed tracklist included within." - Sublime Frequencies.

Title: Ethnic Minority Music of Northwest Xinjiang, China
Format: CD
Label: Sublime Frequencies
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Laurent Jeanneau and Shi Tanding have returned from the northwest corner of Chinas Xinjiang province with an amazing batch of recordings collected during the weeks leading up to the volatile Uyghur uprising of 2009. Armed with their trusty audio gear, the couple was set on getting married and recording various styles of regional ethnic music near the Chinese border with Kazakhstan. However, the local authorities suspected that the pair had other intentions, shadowing and interrogating them wherever they went. Their marriage in Shi Tandings home town of Ili would have to wait for another time (the marriage documents were delayed in processing deep within the Chinese bureaucracy) but the recordings, preserved here, display several magnificent and unique varieties of traditional Islamic folk music with traces of Arabic, Persian, and Turkish influences heard throughout. The players are Kazakh, Uyghur, Kirgiz and Mongol Erut musicians performing on a wide array of local stringed instruments including topchar, komuz, rushtar, rawab and tchang. One amazing example is Kurmanjiang Zaccharia, a Kazakh string virtuoso, whose lightning-fast fingers blaze up and down the neck of his two-stringed dongbra. Another is an epic 10-minute vocal muqam performed by a trio of Uyghur musicians on satar, tambur and dotar. Also featured is a Kazakh singing-style called Ay Ikesse performed by Aken (improvising poet-singers utilizing dongbra accompaniment), Kirgiz songs sung in the Manas style and played on the komuz, and Mongol Erut bai boor den instrumental pieces. The CD comes with a 16-page full-color booklet featuring photos of the musicians and informative liner notes chronicling the journey, instruments and styles documented, and background information on the performers by Laurent Jeanneau." - Sublime Frequencies.

Title: Ethnic Minority Music of Southern China
Format: CD
Label: Sublime Frequencies
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"The fifth Sublime Frequencies volume in Laurent Jeanneaus amazing documentation of vanishing indigenous music of the rural Asian frontiers, this CD focuses on ethnic minority groups of Southern China. Presented here are 17 tracks of supremely infectious vocals and folkloric instrumentals played on a wide variety of local traditional instruments. The centerpiece of this collection is the 13-minute "Do Djui Atsei" (track 5), an absolutely epic male and female group choral vocal piece which is improvised as a song of intimate personal emotions that brings tears to the performers as they are singing together. Jeanneau has spent many years traversing the hills and valleys of Southeast Asia and China, and he has captured a dizzying array of folk music, much of which has never been documented before. He is perhaps the most committed and accomplished procurer of rare and threatened music from the region and seems more focused than ever as he states in his liner notes for this release: "In China, by the end of the 1950s, 400 ethnic groups registered to be counted in the census. There might be 300 remaining groups nowadays. I was facing an incredible amount of potential musicians. Now after six years spent in Yunnan, Sichuan, and Guizhou provinces, I have recorded 55 CDs of raw stuff. This Sublime Frequencies product is a compilation from those CDs, displaying the diversity I was able to find between 2006 and 2012, and Im not finished." This disc comes with a 16-page booklet of detailed notes and photographs of the musicians by Laurent Jeanneau." -Sublime Frequencies.

On this release, you can hear the true historic roots of Molam music (now a venerable popular music style in Laos and Thailand) played on the khaen along with vocal styles from this region. Also featured here are gong ensembles, various stringed instruments, cymbals, drums and sung poetry all captured live on location with the ambient sounds of the surrounding villages. These recordings were made in Xekong, Champasak and Attapeu provinces and because much of this music is unknown, this is probably the first time recordings have ever been released of indigenous music from these remote areas of Southern Laos.

Title: Everything Is Shit: Punk in Brussels 1977-79
Format: LP
Label: Sub Rosa
Country: Belgium
Price: $16.00
"An incredible energy took over Brussels at the onset of the 80s. It is a strange and rare feeling when you tell yourself that something is happening. And it always happens through an accumulation of very small facts. Then, suddenly, it is there. This collection basically attempts to capture this emerging will. But before that, there was punk rock. In Brussels, it started with a handful of venues, improvised concerts, a few dozens of people recognizing each other, and a festival that gathered everyone together: the first Belgian Punk Contest, at the Vieux Saint-Job, on March 18, 1978. Although the influences came from up north -- The Sex Pistols, The Clash, The Buzzcocks, Crass, essentially -- there were also ties and influences from Paris (Asphalt Jungle, Métal Urbain), and Phallus Band, Streets, and H2SO4, who were all also singing in French. The adventure began in the winter of 1976, and the following two years would yield most of the material. Since these bands had very short life-spans, there were a lot of interactions (Chainsaw, X-Pulsion, Streets), while other configurations gave birth to key bands of the next decade: Digital Dance (out of X-Pulsion and Thrills), Snowy Red (from Chainsaw), The Names (The Passengers), and Pseudocode (from Thrills). Other artists in this collection include: Mad Virgins, Terminal Stupid, Isabelle et les Nics-Nacs, The Actors, and Raxola. Features 18 tracks (from the 32-track CD)." - Sub Rosa.

Title: Festival Electronica en Abril 2003-2012
Format: Double Lp Box Set
Label: La Casa Encendida
Country: Spain
Price: $31.00
"To commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Festival Electrónica en Abril, born in 2003 at La Casa Encendida, Madrid, La Casa Encendida has invited some of the artists that have left their personal mark on the event, right now the oldest music festival in Madrid. All of them have contributed exclusive tracks to this 2LP that provide an insight into the quality and diversity of the festival. These are ten exclusive tracks that research a very specific sound quality (Eleh, Radian, nsi.), take introspective journeys (Thomas Köner, Maja Ratkje) and summon deep rhythmic collisions (Farben aka Jan Jelinek, Dopplereffekt, Elektro Guzzi, Matmos, SND). All of them seem to share a desire for experimentation that encompasses the emotional as a response to a general state of things that hits us with an overdose of data and experimentation. Matmos track was composed playing around with a friends new synthesizer. Eleh added field recordings to his usual microscopic sound aesthetic for the first time. Thomas Köner composed this intimate and melancholic piece for his grandmother, and Maja Ratkje goes deep into an alien ambient lullaby of ravishing simplicity and beauty. Farben deconstructs rhythm to build it up again as a pure ecstatic house beat. Nsi., the project of Tobias Freund and Max Loderbauer embark on an abyssal expedition to the far reaches of sound. Dopplereffekt melt their retro-futurist electro into crystalline emotions. Elektro Guzzi, always recording live, without overdubs, was helped in the studio by Patrick Pulsinger, taking the bullet train directly to the heart of their amazing analog techno, where guitar, bass and drums truly count. And SND (Mark Fell and Matt Steel) ride on an oblique and funked-up carousel of their own making, where rhythm and math surf together. And finally, Farben goes deep into glorious house-not-house." - La Casa Encendida.

"At a time when musical shifts were almost a daily routine in the immediate aftermath of the 1960s, multi-instrumentalist Vyto Beleska decided to trawl through the archives of his own Clay Pigeon studios, based in Chicagos South Side. Assembled here are past recording projects that utilized some of Chicagos finest underground musicians, whose collaborations with Beleska reveal another chapter in the annals of psychedelia and garage. To mark the early work of Beleska and Clay Pigeon Studios, a privately pressed album was issued in 1972 in a quantity of 500 copies. Circulated locally, the Clay Pigeon recordings were sadly never acknowledged on a national or worldwide level. The time has come to give wider recognition to the inspiring and awesome sounds that came from these musicians. This is the first legitimate reissue of this retrospective look at one of Chicagos finest unsung musical innovators whose early recorded legacy boasts more fuzz, feedback, and psychedelic mayhem than any true 60s rock fan could desire. Digitally remastered from the original recording; includes detailed background liners and rare archival photographs." - Stoned Circle.

Title: FM-BX Society Tape Vol. 1
Format: LP
Label: S-S
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"S.S. Records is pleased to present the first vinyl edition of the FM-BX Society Tape Vol. 1. Originally released in 1981 only on cassette, with a limited run of 200, FM-BX V1 was the first in a series of compilation tapes released by the staff of a radio station in Brussels, Belgium. Needless to say, not many tapes made it around, and very few survive today. Id say that is a shame but with this vinyl release, the word will get out about the bands on this tape, albeit a few decades after its initial release! FM-BX V1 features three bands, two from Belgium, one from Scotland. The Belgium bands are Isolation Ward and Unit 4. Isolation Ward are known in underground synth collector circles, as they had a bit of a run after their debut on this release. Bleak and futuristic, Isolation Ward fuse post punk with early 80s synth sounds and a DIY approach. The stars of FM-BX are the all-woman foursome Unit 4. Little is known about the band or their current whereabouts. No problem because their music is all you need to tell you that they had something special going. By their sound, the influences are obvious: Kleenex, Delta 5, and the Raincoats all reverberate here though less slick than any of those bands. Unit 4s aesthetics are more akin to the Petticoats and, at times, the Shaggs. This is truly wonderful punk rock. From Scotland comes the Topplers. Great stuff. Teens with an ear towards the TV Personalities, The Times, and Subway Sect. 500 pressed, housed in a sleeve cobbled together from the original cassette release." -S-S

Price: $14.50
"The equator runs through only ten countries on earth and I bet that you cannot name them all without consulting a map. Indonesia is one of them and the only nation in Asia with the equatorial stripe impaling it. There are so many different cultures spread-out on these islands, that it would take several lifetimes to experience them all properly. Within this umbrella of diversity is one of the worlds richest and most dazzling sound museums. Sumatra is the northwestern entry point to the great archipelago. It is a large island approximately the size of California. There are jungles, mountains, swamps, various forms of myths and folklore, hustlers, Padang Food, Tigers, the Durian, dozens of cultures and languages, and more music than youve ever been allowed to hear. The selections on this CD are a combination of droning beat pop, pseudo-gypsy songs, jungle folk trance, and other improbable traditional and hybrid styles heard by only a handful of outsiders. These recordings are from old cassette tapes received as gifts, in trade, or purchased from sources in Sumatra in 1989. Some of the tapes are unmarked with the artists unknown, yet all of them are decaying documents of various sound quality containing some of the most eccentric artifacts ever uncovered from this fascinating island." - Sublime Frequencies

Title: Folk and Pop Sounds of Sumatra Vol. 2
Format: CD
Label: Sublime Frequencies
Country: USA
Price: $14.50
"Folk and Pop Sounds of Sumatra (Volume 2) expands our presentation of the worlds least-known, outstanding musical improbabilities. From the infectious trance beat of Sumatras Folk Dangdut music, featuring Rabab (Violin) or Saluang (Flute), to the highly-refined and glorious Orkes Gambus (Orchestral Arabic music with Gambus literally meaning Oud), said to have been brought to the island by Islamic settlers from Yemen, the 18 tracks featured here will instantly convince the listener of the expressive beauty and diversity that Sumatra has contributed to the world music theater. Most of the musicians on this release are Minangkabau or Minang people who are devout followers of Islam as well as the worlds largest Matrilineal society (a Minangkabau child is the descendent of his/her mother, not father). These tracks (chosen from stacks of old cassettes) were recorded from the 1960s through the 1980s and are all but dismissed by many Sumatrans who seem to prefer a more contemporary sound. This is an assortment of relics from a forgotten period of transition in Sumatran music when psychedelic organs echoed underneath arabic string sections and rustic violins sawed atop trance beats from poorly-lit night markets. The Minang sound is like no other and it represents a vital link in the somewhat cloudy history of Sumatran music. Keep in mind that this is NOT a document for the mere purpose of preservation, although it may serve as such. This IS among the very best music youve never heard and you need to hear it NOW!" - Sublime Frequencies.

Title: Folk Music of the Sahel Vol. 1: Niger
Format: Double LP
Label: Sublime Frequencies
Country: USA
Price: $34.00
"Folk Music of the Sahel: Niger consists of field recordings collected in the Republic of Niger during the course of six expeditions undertaken by Hisham Mayet between 2004 and 2014. This first volume in Sublime Frequencies new Folk Music of the Sahel series comprises a subjective but spectacular overview of Hausa, Zarma, Fulani, Songhai and Tuareg music culled from Mayets rich archives. On this lavish double album, Mayet methodically reveals the dazzling range and power of Nigerian music, from stream-of-consciousness griot performances that serve as a local news broadcast and gossip column to a rare example of ritual music from a private spirit-possession ceremony. Its four sides offer a tantalizing glimpse of this regions unmatched musical riches, including the awe-inspiring courtship dances of the Wodaabe men and a rare duet between the late, great Tuareg guitarist Koudede and the renowned molo master Ousenni. The gorgeous gatefold cover features a 25-page bound-in booklet with extensive and informative liner notes, as well as Mayets emblematic photographs from towns and villages throughout the region. In addition to preserving an exciting variety of sacred and profane musical performances by known and unknown artists, these recordings capture the music of Niger at a difficult cultural crossroads in which ancient musical and oratory traditions are imperiled both by the demands of modern assimilation and by the reactionary forces that oppose it. As such, the intent of this album is not just to document the fantastic heterogeneity of Sahelian music, but also to bear witness to the changes and challenges faced by Nigers diverse ethnic groups during a decade marked by almost inconceivable political instability and technological upheaval. Coming from an area wracked by disease, food shortages and droughts, as well as by social turmoil, this music reflects the essentially improvisational character of Sahelian life as well as its unfathomable cultural wellsprings. From exuberant a cappella drone chants to the riveting instrumental minimalism of goje possession music, the performances on this album represent a poignant cry to the universe by musicians who hold every note as sacred as the gift of enduring in this exceptionally severe region of the African continent. Housed in one of Sublime Frequencies most stunning packages, which pays homage to the great European ethno labels of yore, this monumental one-time pressing, limited edition double LP beautifully inaugurates SFs comprehensive musical survey of the Sahel." - Sublime Frequencies.

Futurisk, an electro-punk group made legendary by their anarchistic records and explosive live shows, mysteriously disappeared from a thriving scene in 1984. With an electric and dynamically layered sound (created with pre-midi instrumentation), the South Florida group left an indelible mark in the crates of disco and minimalist collectors dotted around corners of the world, including LCD Soundsystems James Murphy (who gave a complimentary wink to Futurisk in 2003 by using Push Me Pull You (Pt. 2) on the delightful Colette # 5 DFA Comp CD). Minimal Waves own history with Futurisk runs a few years back, starting first by including an unreleased 1982 version of the track Meteoright on the labels Found Tapes vinyl LP in 2007. Subsequently, Minimal Wave released the retrospective full-length vinyl Player Piano LP to celebrate the bands 30th anniversary last year, culling material recorded between the years 1980 to 1982, with all of the tracks on their two 7-inch releases mixed in with rare studio recordings and early 4-track tapes. The Futurisk Lonely Streets Remixes includes remixes by four of the bands biggest fans, each of whom have a sound as iconic as the band themselves: Chris Carter (Throbbing Gristle, Chris & Cosey), Tom Furse (The Horrors), Prince Language (DFA, Editions Disco) and Complexxion from the UK." -Cititrax

"For the remixes, we wanted to make sure that they werent modernized or techno versions of the tracks, but remixes with the same analogue and dance/rock sensibilities of the time when the original tracks were created, utilizing those very same stem tracks. I believe we have accomplished this with the forthcoming Lonely Streets Remix 12inch vinyl. The first remix 12inch will be dedicated to the track Lonely Streets, with a remix by synth legend Chris Carter, whose version is one that I would have dreamed of doing back in 1982, had we the time and funds and equipment. Prince Languages version captures the feel of the song beautifully with the utilization of all the stems, especially the real drum tracks that were part of Futurisks signature sound, stirring up the No Wave styles that also influenced us at the time. It was also a pleasure to hear Tom Furses Moroder-esque electropunk take, sounding like a missing track from a late 1970′s sci-fi flick and finally Complexxions track with the feel and approach of Arthur Baker, Martin Rushent, Daniel Miller and Kraftwerk of course, all of which were big influences on the members of Futurisk" - Jeremy Kolosine (founding member of Futurisk).

Title: Groove Club Vol. 3: Cambodia Rock Intensified!
Format: Double LP
Label: Lion Productions
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"There were no deluxe studios for the musicians who recorded the devastating tracks contained on this double-LP collection. Nothing so grand. Most of these tracks were recorded live, with traditional instruments finding a place alongside any keyboards or guitars that could be found. And yet, it was these experiments of Khmer rock musicians which transformed the nightlife of the Cambodian capital, Phnom Penh—and which many years later have seduced countless listeners around the world with their groovy sound. Alas, in 1975 came an entirely different type of transformation: the rise to power in Cambodia of the fanatical, anti-Western Khmer Rouge, led by Pol Pot. Within roughly four years, implementing their “concept of Year Zero,” Pot and his regime were responsible for the deaths of an estimated two million Cambodians, many in the notorious “killing fields.” Even the most famous and beloved Khmer musicians could not escape. Sinn Sisamouth (“the Emperor of Khmer Music”), Ros Sereysothea (“The Golden Voice of the Royal Capital”), and Pan Ron—all featured on this collection—met their deaths at the hands of  the Khmer Rouge. Cambodian rock music is (rightfully) adored in Cambodia. The music is wild and anarchic, rhythmic and undulating (in an “Ethiopiques” way, wed say), or sweet and lyrical, but always moving, and with that deep soulfulness (regardless of actual musical genre or style) that singles out the best music. We have assembled what we consider to be the most definitive collection of classic Cambodian rock music to appear thus far—without the later overdubs that confuse the mind, without the artificial speeding up of tracks that often has marred compilations over the years; what youll find here are crucial Khmer rock tracks, made available in the best possible sound, assembled with love and respect for the artists who made the Khmer rock scene as thrilling as we find it to be. And so, without further ado, welcome to “Cambodia Rock Intensified!” -Lion Productions.

Title: Guitars of the Golden Triangle: Folk and Pop Music from Myanmar (Burma) Vol 2
Format: Double LP
Label: Sublime Frequencies
Country: USA
Price: $29.00
"OFFICIAL RSD 2017 release. Limited double LP vinyl gatefold edition of the long out-of-print CD from 2005 compiled by Alan Bishop. Never before presented or heard outside a minority of the Burmese community, this unbelievable collection of raw garage rock, psychedelia, folk, blues, and country music is a product of Shan and Pao musicians hailing from Myanmars largest province of Shan State - an area larger than the entire state of New York expanding across sub-tropic tablelands with an average elevation of 3000 feet, perfect for the cultivation of poppies for which it is very well known (in fact and fiction) as the center of the "Golden Triangle". Discover the music of Lashio Thein Aung (AKA "Jimmy Jack" and the "Burmese Texan"), Khun Paw Yann (a "Black Shan" Pao rocker), and Saing Saing Maw - the original Shan legend who wrote and sang garage psych rock songs, backed by a tight unit of organ, bass, drums, and perhaps the most stinging electric guitar in Burmese history. There is little reliable information about these mysterious pioneers and many Burmese have never heard any of these tracks. The tracks on this double LP set are from the 1970s and 1980s and are almost impossible to find in any form or quality. They were transferred directly from old cassette tapes and a few cuts have dropouts (some of them quite severe). Most of the master tapes are thought to have been lost or destroyed many years ago so these recordings may be the only link to a phenomenal and forgotten era of Southeast Asian music history and therefore essential for anyone interested in folk, rock and pop styles from lesser-known regions of the globe. Also features: Khun Kan Chwain, Khun Kaung Kay Maung, Nan Phin Sar, and Khun Hla Maung Law." - Sublime Frequencies.

Title: Harry Smiths Complete Anthology Of American Folk Music
Format: 8 LP Box Set
Label: Doxy
Country: Italy
Price: $174.00
"Now for the first time ever all together on vinyl a complete box set: 4 double LPs featuring the 3 original double LP volumes (Ballads, Social Music, Songs) along with the great LOST Country Music & Bluegrass double LP that remained unissued for almost 50 years. Compiled by Harry Smith contemporaneously with the first three volumes (which were originally released in 1952), it includes tracks by the Monroe Bros., Carter Family, Robert Johnson, Bukka White, Lead Belly, Uncle Dave Macon and Sleepy John Estes and more! The box set is actually not a box, but is modelled after the old 78 rpm multiple record storage sleeve, where the albums are stored in sleeves that are pages in a book. The importance of Harry Smiths work can not be overstated. Not only did he single-handedly save much of American folk music from extinction, but when he handed his record collection over to Smithsonian folkways in 1952, he opened the floodgates for the American folk revival of the following decade. Not since John and Alan Lomax had anyone paid so much attention to saving the American folk song from extinction, but unlike the Lomaxes, Smith was not a government worker armed with a tape recorder, he was just a guy from Portland, Oregon armed with a love of music and an insatiable curiosity. So, when the U.S. Armed Forces began melting down old records to be used as shellac during WWII, Smith kicked into high gear, buying up as many old 78s from the 20s and 30s as he could find. Much of the music found here then comes from a time before television -- arm-in-arm with rock & roll -- began beaming its über-culture into every household in America, erasing much of what had grown up locally. Prior to WWII, America was in many ways no more than a patchwork of territories, with distinct local cultures and musical traditions reaching both far into the immigrant past of each areas inhabitants, but also into a future firmly rooted in the newness and adventure (as well as hardships) of life on this new continent." -Doxy

Title: Hassaniya Music from the Western Sahara and Mauritania
Format: LP
Label: Sublime Frequencies
Country: USA
Price: $24.00
"In 2006, Hisham Mayet returned to West Africa to continue his search for an unknown musician he had heard six months earlier on the radio in a Morocco hotel room. Knowing only that it was Sahrawi music -- music of the south -- he headed down through the vast and remote desert landscape of the Western Sahara and Mauritania in hopes of finding someone who could identify these revelatory recordings. The story of how he finally found this elusive artist is the stuff of ethnomusicological legend. But he also found much, much more as he wandered from Laâyoune, Western Sahara, to Mauritanias capital city of Nouakchott. From intimate, sinuous home recordings by Group Marwani, to a sublimely devastating track by the enigmatic Abdul Rahman Al-Gheid, to the inimitable tidinit artistry of Sadoum Ouled Aida, the performers on this album exemplify the haunting and intoxicating qualities of Sahrawi music. Featuring Mayets first recordings of the electrifying Group Doueh, as well as dizzying field recordings from Nouakchotts Marché Capitale -- where relentless traffic noise swirls together with fragments of melody from countless cassette vendors PA speakers -- Hassānīya Music from the Western Sahara and Mauritania is the evocative soundtrack to a chimerical journey that is also documented visually in Sublime Frequencies breathtaking film Palace of the Winds (SF 047DVD). It not only traces Mayets own passage through these barren and beautiful lands, but also charts the evolution of Sahrawi music from sung poetry accompanied by traditional acoustic instruments to electrifying modern grooves drenched in reverb and phase effects.

Title: Highlights Of Vortex
Format: LP
Label: Etats-Unis
Country: USA
Price: $27.00
"The brainchild of visual artist Jordan Belson and electronics polymath Henry Jacobs, the Vortex Experiments ran from 1957 to 1960, first at San Franciscos Morrison Planetarium and later at the SF Museum of Art. The very name of these events announced their aim: a swirling totality of sensory experience. Around Belsons richly-colored visuals -- making use of the planetariums entire dome and featuring luminous, sharply geometric imagery projected through an array of devices -- Jacobs ringed a system of roughly 40 multidirectional loudspeakers, each of which could be precisely controlled to produce, in the words of one reviewer, a living theater of sound and light. A landmark recording in the history of electronic tape music and an engrossing artifact of proto-psychedelia, Highlights Of Vortex gathers recordings designed for the Vortex system by Jacobs and collaborators David Talcott, William Loughborough, and Gordon Longfellow. Source material including free improvisation, field recording, classical Indian instrumentation, West African polyrhythms and musique concrète is transmogrified through tape manipulation, atomizing swathes of reverb and delay, and other live and recorded effects, making dramatic use of the monumental Vortex soundsystem. An unprecedented marriage of image and sound, Vortex Experiments exercised immeasurable impact on the imagination and practice of countless experimental visual and sonic artists so this album is a must for fans of such visionaries as Stan Brakhage, Tony Conrad, and Jack Smith. Limited edition of 500 numbered copies on clear vinyl." - Etas-Unis.

Format: LP
Label: Gagarin
Country: Germany
Price: $36.00
"With almost universal access to the internet and the rise of the online archive it may appear that the entire history of recorded sound is only a few mouse clicks away. However, the 2008 discovery in a Paris archive of a phonautograph recording of Au Clair de Lune from 1860 demonstrated that fragile treasures remain to be discovered by the dedicated explorer. Musician, composer and radio producer Felix Kubin has spent the last 5 years investigating, tracking down and collecting a stunning selection of hitherto neglected recordings from archives and private collections. With an eye for the antique curiosity, and an ear for the curious dusty beauty of abandoned transmissions from the past, he is now proud to present this first collection of historical recordings. The recordings presented here offer many and diverse pleasures from the analogue realm. Amongst the jewels offered are chronicles of eccentric machines, alleged occult occurrences on telephone exchanges, drunken whalers, marine plankton, music hall entertainers, Nazi attempts to play proto-synthesizers, uncategorizable oddities, and lost documents by originators of the avant-garde. This deluxe vinyl only edition is presented in lavish packaging including a booklet which contains an essay by Felix Kubin, extensive notes on each track and illustrations." -Gagarin

At these nights the audience is being served all (sub)styles of new wave music from the past and the present... and more...

To celebrate the existence of Hex there is now a compilation LP... so everybody can have a Hex night at home... On the LP are twelve bands that all performed live on stage at Hex. Ten out of the twelve tracks are exclusive recorded for this LP (and the other two are absolute hits on the Hex dancefloor).

Label: Hidden Vision
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Christian rock/psych/garage ranging from album tracks by well known groups like Agape, Search Party and All Saved Freak Band to singles by more obscure groups such as Concrete Rubber Band and Stonewood Cross; extremely high level of musical quality throughout, with varying degrees of fuzzed up guitar solos on all tracks; theres a message there for those who need it—but otherwise this is just great listening; fantastic Psychedelic Moses cover art. Ken Scott review from his excellent spiral-bound Archivist (Vintage Vinyl Jesus Music, 1965-1980): “All the songs on this album were specifically chosen for their guitar content… some of it mellow and subtle, and some of it mind frying heavy fuzz”. For the budget-minded heres you chance to sample tracks from rare pricey albums by Concrete Rubber Band and The Search Party, plus Agape, Exkursions, The Bridge, All Saved Freak Band, and Way International outfits Selah and Pressed Down Shaken Together & Rolling Over. And if youve already got all those theres a 1967 pre-Agape song (In The Light) and the six-minute stunner Magic Man from the elusive Stonewood Cross single (man, if those guys had only cut an album – yeow!). Neat b&w cover art with Fillmore-styled psych lettering.” -Hidden Visions.

Title: I Am the Center: Private Issue New Age in America, 1950-1990
Format: Triple LP Box Set
Label: Light In The Attic
Country: USA
Price: $45.00
"Triple LP version housed in slip case with three tip-on jackets, 20-page book, and download card. Notes by Douglas McGowan featuring interviews with artists and includes rare archive photos. Vinyl cut by John Golden. Pressed at RTI. Remastered from original sources at 24 bit/96 kHz. Forget everything you know, or think you know, about new age, a genre that has become one of the defining musical-archaeological explorations of the past decade. I Am the Center: Private Issue New Age In America, 1950-1990 is the first major anthology to survey the golden age of new age and reveal the unbelievable truth about the genre. For new age, at its best, is a reverberation of psychedelic music, and great by any standard. This is analog, handmade music communicating soul and spirit, often done on limited means and without commercial potential, self-published and self-distributed. Before it became big business and devolved into the spaced out elevator music we know and loathe today, this was the real thing. From mathematical musical algorithms to airport murder mysteries to Henry Mancini and Bugs Bunny, the connections to mainstream culture run in curious directions. (Did you know, for instance, that a track from the first modern private press new age album is featured on the Blade Runner soundtrack? Its called Pompeii, 76 A.D. and weve got it here.) I Am the Center is a knowing, but never cynical overview that invites listeners at last to the mainspring of a misunderstood genres greatest lights. Many of the biggest names are present -- Iasos, inter-dimentional channeler of paradise music; Laraaji, discovered by Brian Eno playing for spare change in Washington Square Park; and the recently famous JD Emmanuel, icon to a new generation of drone, ambient, noise musicians. Call it what you will -- before it was anything else, it was new age. Lovingly conceived and lavishly presented, I Am the Center features stunning paintings by the legendary visual artist Gilbert Williams, and liner notes by producer Douglas McGowan, who weaves the words and images of the wizards and sorceresses of new age into a prismatic portrait of music that can finally be recognized for what it is: great American folk art." -Light In The Attic.

Title: I Dont Feel at Home in this World Anymore 1927-1948
Format: LP
Label: Mississippi
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"This compilation is our tribute to the music made in the U.S. between 1927 and 1948. We decided not only to focus on traditional genres (blues, old-time, Cajun), but to also show the music that was brought by the boatloads of immigrants coming to these shores. Their music influenced and still affects our culture today. The album starts off with a heavenly example of Greek rebetica from Marika Papagika. Also featured is early Tex-Mex pioneer Lydia Mendoza and gospel duo Two Gospel Keys. The latter gives us our title track. Louisiana Cajun music is beautifully executed by artists Cleoma Falcon and Blind Uncle Gaspard with Dela Lachney. The Blue Sky Boys may be considered old-time, but their haunting, melancholic harmonies belong in their own genre. The Caresser and Wilmouth Houdini bring on the Calypso with that New York jazz flavor. Hawaiian slack key guitar is demonstrated by Mike Hanapis Ilima Islanders and Mme. Rivieres Hawaiians. Aside from Calypso, NY was also a big hub for Jewish klezmer, as shown by Jacob Hoffman playing with Henry Kandels Orchestra. Sexteto Bolona is a great example of the roots of salsa and theres even a mystery track by an unknown Indonesian folk singer of the time. The comp ends with blues performer Big Boy Cleveland with his oddly original Quill Blues. A beautiful record from beginning to end." -Mississippi Records.

The country of Syria has been politically and culturally exiled for decades by the western media leaving little known of its rich heritage of art, music and culture. Recorded and surgically-assembled by Mark Gergis from two trips to Syria in 1998 and 2000, disc one of this 2-CD set features recordings made in Damascus and is a virtual documentary of sound from the legendary Capital including street scenes, a wedding, a mosque interior, spontaneous live music and interviews with citizens, radio broadcasts, a song about Saddam Hussein, and the mystery of an underground city called Kazib. Disc two extends to Greater Syria with the same approach capturing live musicians, political opinions, radio excerpts, an interview with an anonymous homosexual, and unique sound documents from this small but highly-influential corner of the Middle East." - Sublime Frequencies

Title: I Want the Beatles to Play at My Art Center! - Video from the Henie Onstad Kunstsenter Archives 1968-2012
Format: DVD
Label: Prisma
Country: Norway
Price: $19.00
"This DVD presents seminal works of music, performance, dance, theater and installation art from the nearly 50-year history of Henie Onstad Kunstsenter (HOK). When HOK founder Sonja Henie exclaimed that she wanted The Beatles to play at her art center, in essence, she expressed its founding ambition to produce and stage a lively cross-artistic program that captured the contemporary spirit of the day in live form. This release is filled with previously-unreleased material from HOKs history, and shows for the first time Kjartan Slettemark dressed up as a poodle in 1975, Mauricio Kagels commissioned piece "Ex-Position" from 1978, and the brilliant recording of John Cage reading "Muoyce" in 1983. "And now we take the first step into the future." Former director Ole Henrik Moe added this bold statement when HOK opened its doors to the public in 1968. The museum of the future at Høvikodden would position dynamic time-based art alongside its collection of modernist masterworks of paintings and sculpture, demonstrating how the various forms art elaborate and collaborate with each other. Instead of expanding its art collection, the majority of HOKs budget would go to events and exhibitions, to the production of new time-based works, and not least, to document ephemeral art. I Want the Beatles to Play at My Art Center! presents a small selection from Henie Onstad Kunstsenters video archives. The DVD contains a newly-restored version of Pål Bang-Hansens promotional feature "A Forum of the Arts" from 1969, where amongst others, Arne Nordheim performs his commissioned work for HOK Solitaire. For the first time one can see what the Norwegian Studio for Electronic Music looked like in 1975 and view an excerpt from Terje Rypdals opera "Orfeus vender seg og ser på Eurydike." In addition, the DVD contains more recent productions with artists like MoHa!, KILLL, Stephen OMalley, and Christopher Nielsen/Masselys. This release accompanies the exhibition I Want the Beatles to Play at My Art Center! -- Tidsbasert kunst ved HOK 1968-2011, opening October 28, 2012 at HOK with performances by Deathprod and Nils Bech. The exhibition and releases are curated by Lars Mørch Finborud. *DVD is only available in European PAL format (not compatible with North American NTSC DVD players), region free." -Prisma.

Price: $16.50
"When the Los Angeles Free Music Society 10 CD set came out I eagerly flipped through the contents to see what treasures had finally been made available again. Much to my surprise the early compilation I.D. Art #2 was not included in this otherwise major overview of the LAFMS. I.D. Art #2 was the second LP release on their label, coming after Le Forte Fours Bikini Tennis Shoes LP, and before the 2LP Live at the Brand, a split album between Le 44 and The Doo-Dooettes. It dates from 1976. It is also probably the most difficult LP on their catalogue to find. Originally released in an edition of just 200 copies, most of which were given out to the 44 artists and groups who appeared on this extraordinary LP. The deal was that each track was paid for by the contributor at a rate of $8 per minute in exchange for 4 copies of the disc. Consequently very few copies were ever made available via the LAFMS mail order service. With a running time of 66 minutes and the sheer variety of contributions, I.D. Art #2 remained for most people a mysterious and tantalising item. Among the known names from the LAFMS scene are: Le Forte Four, Joe Potts, Fredrick Nilsen, Mr Foon, Ace & Duce, Dennis Mehaffey as well as 6 tracks by Smegma." -Paradigm Discs.

Format: CD
Label: Tompkins Square
Country: US
Price: $14.50
"Released in October 2005, Imaginational Anthem Volume One featured two generations of important acoustic guitarists, from John Fahey and Sandy Bull to Jack Rose and Kaki King. Volume Two expands and builds on this theme with 70+ more minutes of guitar magic -- all previously unreleased on CD in the US. 23-year old UK 12-string upstart James Blackshaw opens the record, while the late master Robbie Basho, a clear influence on Blackshaws style, closes it. Bashos track is the only live recording by this groundbreaking guitarist ever released. Riches abound on Imaginational Anthem Vol Two, with new recordings by former Takoma roster alumni Peter Lang (who made an album with John Fahey and Leo Kottke), Billy Faier (an original Greenwich Village folkie whose late 50s Riverside records inspired a fellow crack banjo player, Steve Martin) and an archival home recording by Fred Gerlach (a favorite of Jimmy Page). The new breed is well-represented by fascinating figures of today -- Smith, Carter, Sparhawk, Kraus, Rose and Blackshaw. Legendary singer/songwriter Michael Chapman, whose first albums for the Harvest label in the 60s are now seeing the light again, contributes as well." - Tompkins Square.

"In 1965 the Experimental Studio Bratislava was founded by the Czechoslovak broadcast service... Composers like Peter Kolman, Jozef Malovec etc. started on a do it yourself level and built the equipment which was then not available through the Iron Curtain themselves. However, the studios vicinity to Budapest eventually made it easier for the Slovaks to source the equipment they needed as Hungary had a more free interpretation of the socialist marketsystem. The artists were thus able to make improvements that allowed them to experiment with Musique Concrète and electronic sounds... Interestingly Exs had, for various reasons, never released a record in their own name in spite of vivid exchange with likeminded artists in European studios like the Electronic Studio Stockholm (EMS), founded the same year, 1965, Budapest, Warsaw etc. Recordings made in Exs appeared for example on Hungaroton SLPX-11851: Hungarian Electronic Music; Supraphon SUA 10951: Electronic Music; Supraphone 1111423: From Czech Electronic Music Studios; CBS-S3461144: Musique Tchecoslovaque Nouvelle just to mention a few. We therefore feel it is overdue and more than appropriate to let the increasingly interested world of analog electronic music aficionados know about the hidden gems of vintage electronic sounds and Musique Concrète created behind the iron curtain two generations ago. This is our first release -- Experimental Studio Bratislava, Series 1 - 2 - 3 -- in a small series of 3 with unreleased master tracks from Slovak composers recorded in the Exs between 1965 and 2005. The next releases will be out in about 6 months and 12 months, respectively. Each release consists of one vinyl LP with a CD included -- while on the vinyl some of the tracks will be shortened, the same tracks on the CD will always be in full original length" --Peter Doggwiler, producer. Limited numbered edition of 500. Includes tracks by Roman Berger, Pavol Simai, Ilja Zeljenka, Ivan Hrusovský, Jozef Malovec, Miro Bázlik, Ivan Parík, Peter Kolman, and Tadeás Salva." - 4MG.

Title: Ishq Ke Maare: Sufi Songs from Sindh and Punjab, Pakistan
Format: LP
Label: Sublime Frequencies
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"A searing assemblage of Islamic Sufi spiritual music from the hinterlands of Sindh and Punjab, this compilation marks Sublime Frequencies debut release of field recordings from Pakistan. Recorded and compiled by Arshia Fatima Haq, founder of Discostan - a collective of artists from an imagined federation of states from Beirut to Bangkok via Bombay - this is a rare, unfiltered collection of devotional music ranging from hypnotic solo instrumentals and vocal lamentations to euphoric ensemble qawwalis. Presenting voices that are imperiled in the countrys contemporary political landscape - where renowned singers are assassinated in broad daylight and performance spaces are regularly bombed - this record continues Haqs ongoing project of engaging complex and controversial Islamic practices and rituals that operate in resistance to religious orthodoxy. "During my travels, I recorded both well-known musicians who made regular appearances on Pakistani televisions, and unknown, untrained singers who traveled from shrine to shrine with no possessions, intoxicated in the pursuit of the divine. I recorded in intimate living rooms, in crumbling concert halls, and in remote interior areas where I had to travel with a police escort. From the vertiginous falsetto harmonies of men singing in the female gender to give voice to those who carry the wounds of society, to the sparse and piercing a capella deliverances of itinerants, singing in the spaces of shrines where the doves coo in liturgies to the saints buried therein, this is music of unbridled bridledness, collapsing the divide between the divine and the profane. In masterful, often improvised performances on the harmonium, alghoza, been, and bulbul tarang, these songs unfold into an organic recursion of longing and despair, redeemed by an almost erotic promise of reunion with the divine entity. The singers themselves are ishq ke maare - in the throes of love. Their visionary, intuitive form of devotion is in sharp contrast to the rising tide of mathematical and legalistic approach to faith called Wahhabism seen across the Islamic landscape today. These songs are iconoclastic and anarchic, transcending systems of law and social order, to approach what is truly divine in the rawest possible form."--Arshia Fatima Haq. Features performances by Ustad Aacher and Company, Kalyam Sharif Qawwali Troupe, Meeh Wasaiyo, Fatah Daudpoto, Latif Sarkar, Basheer Haidari and Nazira Bano, Shazia Tarannum, Babu, Sain Juman Shah and Fakirs, Ghulam Arshad, and an unknown singer." - Sublime Frequencies.

"The second chapter in the Great Complotto manifesto from Pordenone (birthplace of Italian punk).

Title: Jemaa El Fna: Moroccos Rendezvouz of the Dead (Night Music From Marrakech)
Format: DVD
Label: Sublime Frequencies
Country: USA
Price: $21.00
"Morocco is a land of ingratiating variety and intense contrast. Its people are as diverse as its topography. The cosmopolitan Atlantic coast fuses with the Berber heritage of the northern Rif and Atlas mountain ranges as the ancient Saharan trade routes wind their way from the south into the city of Marrakech, where all points collide, creating a vibrant mixture of the traditional, the exotic and the supernatural. Jemaa El Fna, the massive central square in Marrakech, is where Moroccos ancient history manifests daily in a perpetual cycle of mysterious sight and sound. Jemaa El Fna can be translated as: Meeting Place of the Dead, the mosque at the end of the world or the mosque that came to nothing; a sly reference to the Saadian Sultan Ahmed el Mansours aborted attempt to build a mosque there several hundred years ago. The Meeting Place of the Dead, a suitably chilling phrase which conjures an aura of exoticism and savage justice to an otherwise fully functional public square, has continued unabated for centuries. By Day it serves as a venue where magicians, fortune tellers, herbalists, acrobats, monkey handlers, snake charmers, dentists, astrologers, numerologists, and sorcerers create intriguing displays of bewitching spectacle. By night, the square transforms into a symphony of mystical brotherhoods and night musicians: the Aissoua, Derkaoua, Hamadasha, Jilila, and Gnaoua. Free from the restrictions and expectations of light entertainment for a tourist crowd, this Rendezvous of the Dead is where the performances animate the audience and musicians alike into an elevated spiritual congress colliding in sonorous ecstacy. Filmed in Marrakechs legendary Jemaa El Fna, the central square of the final outpost before venturing into the great beyond of the western Sahara desert, this film is one of the most vivid documents ever presented capturing the raw folk stylings of Moroccan music. Shot at night, the performers manifest their passions right before your eyes, some drifting into extreme characters, others floating in dark, flowering breeze." - Sublime Frequencies.

Format: 7"

Country: USA
Price: $5.00
"Just A Little Bit provides an overview of the labels current roster, four tracks clocking in around 9 minutes total, each by a different artist. First up is O Carl by Bob Frankford, recorded during Bobs middle period. Says Bob: After the car accident, I was unable to move my fingers or toes for several months. But I could sing and I could play the turntable. And thus, a song is born. Next we hear from the Korg-abusing electrofreak, Jaki Jakizawa, providing his impression of one of R2D2s greasiest dreams, entitled Now You Hate the Swedes. Side B blasts forth with Day Nudes, a guitar feedback mini-nightmare created by Bad Drumlin Grass as an homage to a few of their southern hemisphere heroes. Concluding the record is the unforgettable Little Bit, sung and strummed by a certain Petomane, a fellow who sounds not unlike Lou Reed doing an imitation of Skip Spence covering Lou Reed. Full color jackets, insert featuring pictures of the artists, 250 copies pressed, priced for the Great Recession." - Milvia Son.

Title: Killing Melody - Instrumental Music From Japanese Pinky Violence Movies
Format: LP
Label: Ethbo
Country: UK
Price: $27.00
"Subtitled: Instrumental Music From Japanese Pinky Violence Movies. The title Killing Melody is from the movie Criminal Woman: Killing Melody and sets the scene for a taste of Pinky Violence. Any filmgoer new to the genre should be warned: Pinky Violence movies are not for the prudish or faint hearted. With the irreverence of Luis Bunuel, the slapstick of a Carry On film, the frisson of Russ Meyer, all combined with callous violence. That said, they can be a whole lot of fun. They have more than a resemblance to Blaxploitation movies, yet these films were made before Cleopatra Jones, Coffy and the like. The music selected for this album is not limited to Pinky Violence films, but also the New Action gangster series and the erotic avant garde of Koji Wakamatsu. Very much products of their shameless and liberated times, expressed with a uniquely Japanese mania; essential viewing for anyone interested in early 70s Japanese culture. Featured on the record are cult gloom-folk-rock band THE JACKS. Instead of their signature suicidal folk, they are represented here with one of their earliest recordings, a fuzz rock discotheque hoe-down. Alongside them THE FLOWERS, one of the most renowned Japanese 60s rock acts, beat out a hippy jazz bossa version of their first hit Last Chance. Enka goes RnB, meat and potatoes drums, clavichords, rocking horn sections, driving drones, big reverb and beats to die for. Some of these sounds could easily have been made by Ramsay Lewis, Duke Ellington or Lalo Schifrin. Instead they were banged out by the tight studio bands and orchestras of the Toei, Toho and Nikkatsu film studios. Released on Ethbo Music, its first release for several years, the label being a product of the fevered mind of Howard Williams. Normally found holed away in the basement of Honest Jons record shop, where he runs the distribution for the Honest Jons label and a select group of imprints from around the world. Co-compiler of the Moondog - Viking Of Sixth Avenue compilation album for Honest Jons, he also co-ran Rita Records in the mid 1990s, which launched Smoke Citys international chart hit Underwater Love. This is a 1000 only limited edition vinyl run single LP with insert. Liner notes are written by Mark Schilling, author of No Borders No Limits: Nikkatsu Action Cinema. Mastered in at Dubplates and Mastering Berlin and pressed at Pallas." - Ethbo.

Price: $28.00
RSD 2016 release. Limited edition of 500. "klangFarBe: German Democratic Republic Tape Music 1983-1987 is a compilation of tracks from Frank Bretschneiders legendary experimental new wave label klangFarBe, which Bretschneider ran from 1985 to 1989 in Karl-Marx-Stadt, East Germany (now known as Chemnitz). Bretschneider, who would go on to found the raster-noton label with Olaf Bender and Carsten Nicolai, established klangFarBe to make his music accessible to a small group of interested parties, eventually publishing eight releases in all. Due to the restrictive laws in the German Democratic Republic, where media was completely controlled by the government and any private publishing was actually illegal, it was only possible to publish releases in very limited editions. At first only known to a handful of specialists, the label soon became well known with the help of Lutz Schramm, host of the famous Parocktikum radio program on East Germanys DT 64 station. With the fall of the wall, Bretschneider gained new opportunities to publish his music in a more professional way, and closed down klangFarBe in 1989 after releasing its final cassette, Trickbeat by Bretschneiders new wave band AG. Geige. This collection includes tracks by Bretschneider, Kriminelle Tanzkapelle (Bretschneider and Fritz-Hendrik Melle), Stein im Brett (Bretschneider and Matthias Stein), and AG. Geige.

The Krypton volumes did not only feature brilliant local acts like The Riptoids, G.O.D., The Oxes or Nick Slick, they also included tons of otherwise unavailable material by well known artists like Bill Direen/The Bilders, Scorched Earth Policy or The Puddle, to name but a few. In collaboration with Onset Offset Records Unwucht now releases the 10th volume in the series, a double LP of 28 Krypton selections along with 2 archival tracks available here for the first time: The full 4 mins version of BILL DIREENs High Thirties Piano and a Devo-esque electro punk track by DROWNING IS EASY, featuring M.S. Agro (later of the Terminals) on lead vocals and recorded in 1981. The tracklist further includes 2 more early BILDERS tracks (as The Cherry Smash and Ritual Sex), SCORCHED EARTH POLICY, THE PUDDLE, RITCHIE VENUS & THE BLUE BEETLES, THE GORILLAS (Steve McCabes pre Axemen high school band), WE TOOs Crushed Velvet Morning, a GEORGE HENDERSON solo opus from 1982 and tons more. The album comes in a screen printed gatefold sleeve including 2 pages of never before seen photos from the artists private archives. Two double sided inserts of liner notes written by the featured artists will give an insight to a yet undocumented Christchurch scene that existed besides the great nun." - Unwucht.

Title: Kwangkay: Funerary Music Of The Dayak Benuaq Of Borneo
Format: LP
Label: Sublime Frequencies
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"Numbering less than 1000 people, the Dayak Benuaq from the Eastern Kalimantan region of Indonesian Borneo still practice many of their traditional ceremonial customs. This album of field recordings presents the music associated with the kwangkay, the secondary mortuary ritual celebrated by the Dayak Benuaq, recorded live on location by Vincenzo Della Ratta. According to the Benuaq belief system, upon death the soul of the human being is transformed into the liau, associated with the physical body, and the kelelungan, associated with the intellect or the head. Both the liau and the kelelungan temporarily reside in a sort of cosmic location, connected respectively with the bones and the skull of the deceased, who has entered a state of deep unconsciousness, as yet neither pertaining completely to the realm of the living, nor to that of the dead. Music plays a key role within the kwangkay, as it is crucial for guiding the liau and kelelungan spirits to their final destinations. It is also intended to please the spirits of the dead by providing them with entertainment. This ritual includes a night dance performed for the spirits and accompanied by a musical piece known as the ngerangkau. These rites and ceremonies are often dedicated to several deceased persons and are held within a house belonging to one of their family members. Featured here are two different versions of the ngerangkau, with their long, trance-inducing rhythmic gong patterns. There are two more tracks on the album which are not specifically related to the kwangkay. "Titi Mati" is a gong piece commonly played to proclaim the recent death of a villager. And finally, a nocturnal soundscape of a village by the river Mahakam, a channel of transport and communication which is essential for the local people of the Benuaq territories. Limited edition LP; includes insert of text and images by Vincenzo Della Ratta." - Sublime Frequencies.

Format: 10 CD Box Set
Label: RRRecords/Cortical Foundation
Country: USA
Price: $88.00
"The Los Angeles Free Music Society was a complete screwball fringe music collective that peaked in the true heart of darkness -- America in the mid 70s. They self-released LPs, 7"s and cassettes in the dawn before real independent distribution and the myth that surrounds those sacred pressings has in recent years become feverish. Mixing pure sonic weirdness, musique concrete, free improv blare, fringe-noise-nonsense and much more, the musicians involved with LAFMS created a unique bounty of individualistic art. This unbelievable box of 10 CDs, which took a number of years to finally assemble, creates an awesome overview of this inspired, largely ignored scene. Features music by Le Forte Four, The Doo Dooettes, Airway, Tom Recchion, Rick Potts, Dennis Duck, Fredrik Nilsen, Joe Potts, Chip Chapman, Monique et Aviv, John Duncan and CV Massage, and more. Comes with a stunning 36 page booklet of full color photographs, 60 page book of extensive notes by the many contributors, a full color poster depicting all the original releases; all encased in a sturdy, letter-pressed chipboard box." - FE.

Title: La Ciudad Secreta: The Experimental Sounds of Barcelona 1971-1991
Format: Triple LP
Label: Munster
Country: Spain
Price: $37.00
“At the end of the 1960s, perhaps due to its proximity to Paris, Barcelona had become the forefront of the avant-garde and the entryway in Spain of new forms of cultural expression from Europe and the United States. Musically, that characteristic resulted in a middle-class underground that would play the part of a late local counterculture which gave birth to the so-called Barcelonés progressive rock of 1969-1973. It featured bands such as Máquina!, Om, Música Dispersa, and so on. Material from that period would take decades to be re-appreciated and get the same reissue treatment as Barcelonas jazz-rock scene, its continuation, and punk, its executioner, the latter two being particularly prolific genres in Barcelona in the late 70s and 80s. Concurrent with progressive rock, the trigger for another explosion of creativity -- still more prolific and experimental and, consequently, more obscure and marginal -- was developing in the underground of the city. This movement, breaking away from free jazz, branched out throughout two decades into electronic, punk, industrial, improvisation, noise music, art rock and even singer-songwriter music. It wasnt so much a scene, technically speaking, as it was an eclectic series of individuals and circumstances which Munster has the privilege of compiling here in the interest of recovering a lost legacy. Its a legacy that collectively we could and should value as something as stimulating and multi-faceted as that of Krautrock, the Canterbury scene or Rock In Opposition. That eclectic experimental eruption also encouraged the first known independent record labels in Spain and likewise served as a laboratory for new technologies, rethinking formats and declaring strategies. The artists of the experimental frontline collected here make up a dynamic melting pot thats still surprising in its color and its idiosyncrasies, in its innovative sounds and in its capacity for survival in a hostile environment. This movement also established valuable connections in France and England, taking part in a fruitful exchange with networks like mail art, the International Cassette Network and independent radio, in particular the local station Radio PICA, where many of the musicians in Barcelona had their own programs. Some of the keys to that ubiquity were self-management and self-released recordings, cooperativism and DIY ethics. This included the invention of a set of technologies that produced signal generators, oscillators, synthesizers and other homemade devices. Still, you would need an entire book -- there is one in fact, published only in Spanish -- to get the whole picture of this intrepid adventure. The 29 songs compiled here, all remastered, mostly unreleased and nearly impossible to find, give testimony of that adventure, about its existence and its timelessness. The 12-page booklet features extensive notes in English by journalist Jaime Gonzalo, plus numerous band photos and memorabilia.” - Munster.

Title: Lagos Disco Inferno
Format: Double LP
Label: Academy
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"Welcome to the Lagos Disco Inferno, the first compilation of rare, Nigerian Disco to be released outside of Africa. Compiled by Frank Gossner (of Voodoofunk.com fame), this record contains 12 tracks that represent the sound of Lagos in the late 1970s. Dean Disi (Music Journalist and formerly Director of Lagos based label TYC Records) wrote the liner notes for this album: it was the era of sheer ecstasy. The music not only represents the vibrancy of youthful expressionism of the time but is also deeply rooted in African rhythm though not traditional in phraseology. This collection of songs marks the development of Nigerian urban pop culture. There was diametric difference in the music of the discos and the music play by the groups. Disco music as played by the DJs was essentially western. The fans could connect with this easily. It was hip, urban and stimulating. The young Nigerian groups were hooked on it and tried to play it but with a distinctive African stamp of their own.�?� Some of the artists on this record were stars of their times while others remained in obscurity. Lagos, a uniquely vibrant, gritty, energetic and sometimes quite dangerous tropical metropolis has always been much more than just a city. A state of mind where third world poverty met the oil boom, where African traditions clashed with Western decadence. Make no mistake, this stuff will have you dance in a feverish rush in no time." - Academy.

This is distressing in that not only will it lead to the sad demise of Pineapple Tapes, but also because I do all of my music with a stereo field cassette field recorder and a 4 track cassette machine. I feel like Ive finally become really good at putting together music this way and now it will be obsolete. Just like me! Putting that aside, I thought it would be great for Pineapple Tapes to go out with a bang and what better bang than an international compilation 90? So, I invited some of my friends and associates and Lasting has emerged. I must say that everyone sent excellent tracks and I did my best in sequencing the material, keeping in mind the great From Brussels With Love tape. The artists are listed below. Salud Lasting!

Title: Latinamericarpet: Exploring the Vinyl Warp of Latin American
Format: CD
Label: Sublime Frequencies
Country: USA
Price: $15.50
"...Psychedelia Vol. 1. "Latinamericarpet is a non-stop collage of vinyl artifacts culled from stacks of forgotten LPs of the 1960s and 1970s from Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Peru, Chile, and Isle de Pascua (Easter Island). Historically, Latin America was part of the "new world" that Christopher Columbus "discovered" in 1492, which soon was brutally conquered by the Spanish and Portuguese. Obviously it was only a "discovery" from a Eurocentric perspective because, in fact, on these vast lands there were hundreds of advanced native cultures living for centuries. However, after countless years of violent colonization and internal wars, the independence emerged on the whole continent, launching a group of new countries with their own unique identities. But what is Latin America nowadays? A complex answer for a complex puzzle: some people would say its a huge cocktail that combines -- in a more or less chaotic way -- the ruins of pre-Columbus cultures and diverse European traditions mixed with a high dose of pseudo-tropical weathers, Latin manners and unstable economies... although thats also a simplification: Latin America is just Latin America, and it deserves to be "rediscovered." But lets go straight to the record. This compilation brings together some glittering sounds from LPs that have been somehow forgotten over the years. Although most of the tracks presented here were recorded during the peak of the psychedelic era in the late 60s and early 70s, this is not a collection packed with guitar group psychedelia, although there are a few unknown gems here that qualify as such. There are also pop and folkloric songs, childrens songs, odd instructional record excerpts, and a few other anomalies from our neighbors to the south. These selections are only brief samples of what was made in Latin America in those glorious years, but while we wait for further works that can bring to light more sounds from this "undiscovered" continent, just relax, turn on your stereo and keep this magic Latinamericarpet flying." --Compilation liner notes by Albano Costillares (Argentina)." - Sublime Frequencies.

Format: Double CD & Book
Label: Dust-to-Digital
Country: USA
Price: $39.00
“What happens when a 78 collector marries a collector of antique photographs? Lead Kindly Light: recordings of rural Southern music: old time, string band music from Appalachia, extremely rare country blues and African American gospel singing from 1924-1939. A portrait of the rural American South between the dawn of the twentieth century and World War II, Lead Kindly Light brings together two CDs of traditional music from early phonograph records and a fine hardcover book of never-before-published vernacular photography. North Carolina collectors Peter Honig and Sarah Bryan have spent years combing backroads, from deep in the Appalachian mountains to the cotton and tobacco lowlands, in search of the evocative music and images of the pre-War South. The music of Lead Kindly Light presents outstanding lesser-known recordings by early stars of recorded country music, as well as rarely- and never-reissued treasures by obscure country, blues, and gospel artists. The photographs, mainly images of the rural and small-town South, are richly textured depictions of family life, work, and fun, and the often accidental beauty of the vernacular snapshot. 159 photographs from the collection of Sarah Bryan reproduced in full color. 46 audio recordings from the 78 RPM record collection of Peter Honig. 176-page hardcover book with 2 CDs. 8.5 inches x 6.5 inches.

Was meant to be a Justice-style garage unit turned Frankenstein- style into a twisted distorted Mega-mess!

Just a stinking rocking mess of a track!! More to come by this mutant unit! Name taken from a strange puzzle the puzzler master Tovah found in a rotten Lansing thrift store. Track Three ) Imaginary Unit in Electronics: Im sure yall are like "Why not just call the jam J?" Well, Im not quite sold on the concept of being that you cant take the square root of a negative, but you CAN call it a J and then next thing you know it has a value of 1 or-1. Huh?

“This compilation is a sweet snapshot of a sophisticated sector of young Japanese pop music circa 2014. Originally released as a series of web-only EPs on Dai Ogasawaras Ano(t)raks label, Light Wave features artists born in the 1990s who have been strongly influenced by the melodic, sophisticated Japanese "city pop" music of the 70s and 80s, as exemplified by such revered names as Tatsuro Yamashita, Yumi Arai, and Tin Pan Alley. These musicians also draw inspiration from the "shibuya style" pop of the 90s, including artists like Pizzicato Five and Cornelius. But whereas these earlier artists were living in boom times and recording in luxurious studios financed by major record companies, these young artists have been born into a glum economic era with a decimated recording industry. Nevertheless, through the magic of sheer willpower and surprisingly assured musical and self-production skills, they make joyous, lighthearted, and refreshingly refined pop music. With strong melodies and inspired arrangements, this fresh new wave of city pop is perfect summer music, all year round. Remastered to EM Records exacting standards, this collection showcases a promising generation of pure pop music in Japan. Includes 20-page booklet with liner notes by Ryohei Matsunaga, lyrics, artist bios, and English translations. Includes tracks by Hesonosuke, Miho Tsujibayashi, Shin Rizumu featuring Sodapop, rizumu & ikkubaru, and Sodapop (including a track featuring Yuriko Ohno).

Title: Little Band EP
Format: 7"
Label: PRS
Country: Australia
Price: $16.00
"In late 1979/early 1980, the Champion Hotel in Melbourne held weekly Little Band nights, where 10 small, barely rehearsed groups would take the stage one at a time and play for ten or fifteen minutes each. Bands with names like Thrush And The Cunts, The Oroton Bags and the Soporifics all took their turn to shine briefly, and than as quickly disappear. Mostly, synthesized art-punk was the order of the day, although anything was fair game. In early 1980 a four band seven inch was released which came to be known as the Little Band EP. Morpions, Too Fat To Fit Through The Door, Ronnie And The Rhythm Boys and The Take each contribute a track. The Take included Frank Lovence from the Primitive Calculators." - David Nichols; Cant Stop It liner notes.

Title: Live AT AC Temple - Arthur Doyle + Hollow Bush, Demons, Drug Knives
Format: DVDR
Label: AA
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"In Birmingham, Alabama there is a fountain at the Five Points. The fountain is of a goat lord surrounded by small animals. Water sprays from the mouths of each animal, the streams cross and a pentagram forms.  Birmingham is also home to Arthur Doyle and Hollow Bush (Rodger Stella, Bryan Martin).  A collaboration between Arthur Doyle and Hollow Bush is a strange thought for anyone who knows Rodger Stella or has seen Arthur Doyle.  Even more complex is the image of the two of them behind closed doors discussing the approach and direction of the set to follow.  What truly blew my mind was the set itself.  Starting out with Doyles vocal work alone, the sound had a sparse and delicate feeling. Rodger Stella soon joined Doyle with a mirror of vocal samples.  Doyle hears himself, smiles, then stops to listen. What followed was a intricate working of vocal loops and cut up sax with hand over beer electronics. Rodger Stella and Arthur Doyle are an odd couple but some how a perfect match. My favorite performance of the 2007. This is followed by the latest in live Demons visual music straight from the Invisible Darkness tour and committed to DVD here for the first time. The night ended with a very rare Drug Knives set - Demons with Stella playing for themselves in the muscle-relaxed atmosphere of each others company. Drug Knives is just that deep long stare into oblivian." - AA Records.

Title: Love, Peace & Poetry - Chilean Psychedelic Music
Format: LP
Label: QDK Media
Country: Germany
Price: $17.00
"LP glossy gatefold heavy sleeve; 180 gram pressing; transparent red vinyl, 62 minutes. The Love, Peace & Poetry series from QDK continues in Chile, with 17 tracks culled from some of the lost treasures of the psychedelic music scene of the 7-year period between 1967-1973. In 1973, the Chilean dictatorship banned most rock bands and most musicians had to stop or leave the country, or take it underground. The ban extended to the retroactive destruction of many master tapes for many of the albums included here, which only just stopped as recently as the 1980s. Kissing Spell represents with "Yellow Moon" taken from their 1970 album Los Pajaros, as well as Embrujo who released their self-titled LP in 1971. Los Jaivas debut LP was pressed privately in 1971 in a small edition of 500 copies, making this track extra-rare. Los Vidrios Quebrados were one of the real South American psychedelic classics -- their Byrds-like jangle-pop coming through clearly on their track. Aguaturbia were pioneers of psychedelic rock in Latin America, who also generated considerable controversy over their album covers. Los Blops released three now very rare and very sought-after LPs between 1970 and 1973, and their sound was focused on their guitarists electric 12-string guitar (an unusual instrument in Chile at the time). Sacros were among the first electric folk-rock bands to perform during Catholic mass -- their recording was almost destroyed by the military and only a handful of copies survived. Los Macs 1967 masterwork, Kaleidoscope Men, is rightfully considered by many collectors to be one of the finest examples of 60s psychedelia from South America and original copies are impossibly rare. Los Beat 4 was one of the most successful groups of the national scene in the mid-60s and both of their rare LPs are represented here. Tumulto was respected for being non-commercial, and their track is taken from their rare debut album. Escombros released their sole LP in 1970 and are a gem in the psychedelic progressive folk style. Congregación released their sole LP on the IRT label in 1972, and El Congressos sound is the result of a unique blend of contemporary elements and Andean roots. Chilean psychedelic music was produced during a time of great cultural change and social turmoil and is exceedingly rare and very special. "-QDK Media

Title: Love, Peace & Poetry - Turkish Psychedelic Music
Format: LP
Label: QDK Media
Country: Germany
Price: $17.00
"This is the ninth volume in the impressive Love, Peace & Poetry compilation series, following America, Latin America, Asia, UK, Japan, Brazil, Mexico and Africa. In Turkey, as the 1950s became the 1960s, just as in cities and towns across Britain and America, countless musical groups began to spring up as young people felt the pull of a growing youth movement. The music that would come from Turkey would blend European and Asian influences unique to that country and essential to the cultural synthesis of Turkish folk and Western rock music that emerged in 1967-1968. The great Delta blues players like Robert Johnson created music with one acoustic guitar in much the same way that traditional türkü arrangements were played originally on one saz (traditional Turkish instrument). If you consider the ways in which classic Delta blues songs were later given electric rock arrangements by musicians like John Mayall ,Eric Clapton ,The Rolling Stones and others you will have a fuller understanding of the Turkish rock/pop music of this era. Artists featured include: Mo?ollar (described as "Anadolu pop" or "Anatolian pop" -- the essence of the ancient and mystical soul of Turkish folk music; known as the "Turkish Pink Floyd"); Selda (politically-themed music, a transformation of traditional Turkish folk music and poetry into more contemporary rock-based music similar to the transformation of traditional folk-blues in the West); �?zdemir Erdo?an (well-known jazz guitarist, vocalist and arranger; his track was originally a well-known türkü by Asik Veysel , one of the most revered Turkish folk poets); Erkin Koray (the most psychedelic Turkish rocker ever, made his best recordings between 1970 and 1974 -- the song here was recorded in 1971 with his band, Erkin Koray Supergroup ). Edip Akbayram (a türkü arranger and singer -- one of the last examples of the best Turkish rock music of the 1960s-1970s, as there was a definite shift away from those traditions after the beginning of the 1980s). Cem Karaca (another important rock singer known for his political stance); �?ç Hürel (Turkish rock group formed in 1970 by three brothers; unique for designing their own instruments: drums created from traditional Turkish percussion instruments, a double-necked stringed creation that had an electric saz on one half and an electric guitar on the other); Bülent Ortaçgil (songwriter and singer who released his debut LP in1974, an album which has become a Turkish pop classic recently reissued on CD; Ortaçgil is unique because of the absence of Eastern influences in his music, sounding more Western as a result). As the smoke from the hookah rises around you and the intricate patterns in the finely-woven carpet open upon new worlds of meaning, breathe in the music deeply and enjoy." - QDK. CD also available.

Title: Luk Thung: Classic & Obscure 78s From The Thai Countryside
Format: LP
Label: Parlortone
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"Fourteen outstanding funky performances of Thai country groove music from the 1950s and early 1960s. All previously un-reissued, carefully transferred and mastered from the original 78rpm records and presented with detailed full-color liner notes. Luk Thung is the down home, funky "Country Music" of Thailand that blossomed as rural Thais migrated to Bangkok for work in the 1950s and 1960s. Luk Thung evolved out of a complex stew of traditional folk styles and international influences. Wild accordions and Latin horn sections mingle with Thai hand drums and finger cymbals, while exquisite vocalists swagger and sing stories about lifes struggles. For fans of the Sublime Frequencies Molam and Thai Pop Spectacular series, as well as the Thai Beat A Go-Go LPs on Subliminal sounds, Luk Thung: Classic & Obscure 78s From The Thai Countryside is the missing piece of the puzzle: the origins, the home-spun, country roots behind the electric movements to come. All of the selections here are reissued for the first time for English audiences, with six pages of full-color illustrated notes and the typical attention to detail and ability to make the past present that audiences expect from Dust-to-Digital and Parlortone CDs and LPs. Compiled by David Murray, with notes by Peter Doolan. Murray is a 78rpm collector and the curator of Haji Maji, a blog dedicated to Asian music from the 78 rpm era. He also plays Greek Rebetika music, is a fiddler for the old-time Squirrelly Stringband, and is a graphic designer. Peter Doolan spent the last year in Bangkok researching the music of Thailand. He shares his passion for Thai music through his blog Monrakplengthai: Enchanting Sounds of Thailand. Pressed on high quality vinyl with a full-color cover featuring Thai 78rpm record sleeve graphics, and a full-color 6-page illustrated fold-out insert with extensive liner notes and photos." -Parlortone

Format: LP
Label: Bureau B
Country: Germany
Price: $23.00
"Inspired by punk and post punk, vibrant scenes dedicated to independent self-actualization by means of self-distributed cassettes - the cheapest and fastest medium - were developing on each side of the Cold Wars confrontational line. Albeit, under quite different circumstances. While there was a DIY euphoria in the West, which would also have had ideological motives, subcultures in the East simply had no other means. Even the first act of replication meant moving into illegal territory, since every duplication had to be authorized by State authorities, just like anything else. The protagonists - musicians, painters, poets, filmmakers, performers - crossed genres and jumped back-and-forth between various styles. Disillusioned, and often ready to jump towards the West, these border crossers defined themselves rather somewhere between non- and anti-political, pursuing self-actualization strategies by means of an extended niche existence. They took refuge in the search for ways of creative self-assertion and communication, looking out in sensual despair, utilizing sounds of rage, linguistic wit and a passion for tinkering. Driven by ubiquitous boredom, equipped with plenty of time and free of economic restraints (or rather possibilities), labor was performed with no regard to the final product, hardly documented and almost never published. With the partial opening of State-controlled media and cultural sites accompanying the beginning agony of the State, conditions changed. Suddenly there was radio airplay of supposedly illegal cassettes and weird noise performed at Palast Der Republik. In the end, full albums by these "other bands" were released on the State-owned label AMIGA. The collapse following soon after relieved the activists remaining in the country who continually had to re-position themselves. Many took different roads, some leading to Rammstein, others to Raster-Noton or groups like To Rococo Rot and Tarwater. The artifacts from that era tell of a stance of refusal in practice. Between being excluded and self-exclusion, truly wayward sounds and means of expression were developed. Bert Papenfuß, Ronald Lippok, Bernd Jestram and Bo Kondren compiled two companion CDs accompanying the long sold-out Zonic special edition Spannung. Leistung. Widerstand. Magnetbanduntergrund DDR 1979-1990, released in 2006, of which the more experimental-electronic pieces are herewith available on the music market for the first time. Features: A. F.

Title: Manifesto Rumorarmonico Post Futurista
Format: Double LP
Label: Old Europa Cafe
Country: Italy
Price: $45.00
"Vinyl compilation devoted to Luigi Russolo the father of Futurist music and the first man to theorize that music has to be composed mainly by rumors and not by harmonic sounds! His music was played with an instrument lIntonarumori or Rumorarmonio which was invented by himself. Russolo is the forefather and theorizer of the electronic music concept and for sure we can say today that he was the first man playing industrial music. For this project, we found four artists known for being neo-Futurists and uncompromising industrial artists. GX Jupitter-Larsen from the USA is known for being the mind behind The Haters and for all his very futurist performances where a click becomes the main sound. Merzbow from Japan is the father of Japanese noise. This is the sound Russolo would be playing if he were alive today. With his first project Zoviet France, Robin Storey, aka Rapoon, was one of the very first artists using toy instruments. Sacher Pelz from Italy was the very first project by Maurizio Bianchi, also known as MB. He was one of the very first artists using electronic noise. Each artist gives his contribution to this tribute playing long tracks on a full LP side. White vinyl. Discs are packed in a hand-numbered limited edition of 765 copies -- a folding cover shows Luigi Russolo and his Rumorarmonio." - Old Europa Cafe

Title: Marvelous Sound Forms
Format: Double LP
Label: Twisted Village
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"When most labels clear their vaults, one is usually reminded of old Roger Corman horror movies. The detritus of the shambling dead stagger forth beneath an unfortunate sun, groping blindly for the unwary listener, as a cultured English narrator sepulchrally utters that there are things Humanity was not meant to know. Heres ours. Marvelous Sound Forms is a collection of stray tracks from the TV elite, all once shelved for various reasons but now forming a special picture of that time we call the "early 90s" when bands like the Crystallized Movements, Magic Hour, and B.O.R.B. roamed the galaxy. The Crystallized Movements were Connecticuts long lived last hope. At the point at which these tracks were recorded, the Crystallized Movements were Wayne Rogers (good evening guitar), Kate Biggar (piss off guitar), Scott McLeod (whose holy bass playing shook Lucifer in the very Pit itself), and Teri Morris (fearless pounder of every inanimate object within reach). Marvelous Sound Forms features four crystallizations from their peak era. BORB is one of the labels eternally cryptic projects. Three extraterrestrial visitors periodically touch down in a field in southern Vermont where they are met by label staff. A zorbnoid-to-analog converter is hastily assembled, and the BORBans interstellar ramblings are downloaded to tape by these intrepid TV staff for Earthly distribution. Two tracks are here, one Blast Off-era track (originally considered too ridiculous even by the band) and one meditative post-In Orbit excursion (once slated for a never finished fourth LP). Magic Hour melded the powerhouse guitar overload of Wayne Rogers and Kate Biggar with the melancholy flow and throb of bassist Naomi Yang and drummer Damon Krukowski. The results balanced acoustic poise with electric roar, psychedelic rush and funereal stateliness. A band that was truly dark, as opposed to just being poorly-lit. The tracks featured here include their last studio moment together-- an Untitled improvisation from 12/95. A Wayne Rogers solo cut rounds out the set. We hope you enjoy this collection of juvenilia and dying breaths." -Twisted Village.

Title: Melodii Tuvi: Throat Songs and Folk Tunes from Tuva
Format: CD
Label: Dust-to-Digital
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Recordings from 1969 of Tuvan folk music and throat-singing with liner notes by Dr. Pekka Gronow of the University of Helsinki. With the advent of the folk music revival in the 1960s, a new interest in Tuvan music swept through Asia and Eastern Europe. Capitalizing on this appeal, these 16 recordings were issued in 1969 in the Soviet Union. Dust-to-Digital is proud to reissue for the first time on compact disc these traditional performances including several khoomei songs plus one modern take on the classic Tuvan sound. In khoomei, the singer simultaneously produces two more distinct musical notes: a low, sustained bass note and a flute-like higher note. Tuvan sheep herders often practiced khoomei in an effort to calm animals and appease spirits. The effect is hypnotic, eerie, and drone-like, unlike any sound youve heard come out of a cowboy. The Republic of Tuva lies between Russia and Mongolia in the Altai Mountains, at the geographical center of Asia. Tuva is a land of mountains, lakes and rivers. Although the geographical area of Tuva is as large as the state of Florida, it has only 300,000 inhabitants." -Dust-to-Digital.

Price: $12.50
"The Messthetics #100-series launches its grand tour of the U.K. with two full CDs of London-area D.I.Y. - from some of the most famous, most obscure, and most idiosyncratic members of an extraordinary scene. Between 1977 and 83 hundreds of U.K. bands put out their own records and tapes - usually on the cheap and utterly without apology. With D.I.Y., punk and everything that came before it collided gloriously with D.I.Y.s fresh aesthetic of making and sharing recordings outside of the established music business - with only the slightest regard for an audience. Theres no common style: instead these songs are united by wit, enthusiasm, musical risk-taking (especially these London bands) ...and a conspicuous lack of pose. Rare tracks from the Scissor Fits, the Rich & Famous, Exhibit A, Different Is, Acid Drops, Grinder, Take It, the Jimmy Nipper 5, Funboy Five, Twelve Cubic Feet, Tiny Town, Existence, Collective Horizontal, Karel Fialka, and The Door and the Window. Never released material from the Homosexuals, Blue Screaming, Rejects (the final original from their 1977 demo, pre-Homosexuals), Milkshake Melon, George Harassment, Different Is, Grinder, TDATW. 16-page book, pix, 22 songs (27 if you count 5 ripping MP3s of related stuff that wouldnt fit)." - Hyped 2 Death.

"D.I.Y. and (very) indie post-punk from Scotland, 77-81. Messthetics first Scottish installment focuses on a brief, intense scene of ardently independent bands who got started rubbing shoulders with 1977 punk then paid no attention at all to London after that. (London returned the favor.) The sound was based on guitars of all sorts, ingeniously skewed melodies and unashamed local accents. Naturally, it all fell apart as soon as The Sound of Young Scotland became a marketable commodity, but they left behind a rich cache of lost alternative hits. Plenty of traditional D.I.Y., too... 24 songs on the CD plus nine bonus MP3 tracks. 90 minutes of music. 24-page booklet, lovingly documented with histories & photos galore. Messthetics #105 features rarities by Fire Engines, Scrotum Poles, 35mm Dreams, The Exile, Commercials, Fakes, Metropak, Tony Pilley, Visitors, Article 58, Radio Ghosts, Rapid Dance, Strutz, Vertical Smiles, Restricted Code, Brills, Rhythm Method, Hes Dead Jim, Friction and Paul Reekie.

Title: Messthetics #108: South Coast D.I.Y. 77-81
Format: CD
Label: Messthetics
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"D.I.Y. and (very) indie postpunk from the South Coast 1977-81 (vol. 1: Bournemouth-to-Brighton). Throughout the age of Punk and postpunk the English music press, the major labels, and the established indies ignored the South Coast with surprising thoroughness. Their neglect blurred lines between potential chart acts, Rough Trade prospects, and deliberate D.I.Y., so that the South Coast scenes (while still insular) remained highly varied, while D.I.Y. became less a choice than a necessity. Except for the Mods, hardly anyone put out records on their own, so instead the best documents of South Coast postpunk were a handful of excellent local compilations and a raft of barely-circulated tapes -- that account for a majority of the tracks here. Messthetics purists may note with alarm that almost every band on #108 had a proper drum-kit (sacrilege!) and also performed regularly in public. Still, there are Messthetics sounds of all species on #108 -- and its our most generous selection yet! 24 songs on the CD plus 10 bonus MP3s and a video: 110 minutes of music; 28-page booklet, extensively documented with histories, photos and artifacts." -Messthetics

"...Cassette Culture D.I.Y.: 1979-1982 (Volume 1). An introduction to the D.I.Y. cassette scene 1979-84. The U.K.s original cassette-scene hosted some of the most inept shambling in the history of recorded music, but there was no shortage of musical genius, either (be that accidental or otherwise). From endless bedrooms filled with home-made gadgets, Woolworths guitars, Casios and soldering fumes, came sounds both stunningly simple and sophisticated -- and vastly more varied than anything on vinyl. These artists seldom made more than 100 copies of their cassettes and typically circulated them for free, with untold thousands of tapes changing hands through the Royal Post. Messthetics new series samples the more, er, musical sides of the scene (lots of cool electronics, but no ambient or industrial -- and everythings under 5 minutes!): Here is D.I.Y. at its most liberated. Twenty-five tracks on the CD plus five bonus MP3s. 90+ minutes of music. 24-page booklet, crammed with histories, photos, artifacts and an essay from Mick Sinclair, who wrote the original Cassette Pets column for Sounds.

Format: 6 LP Box
Label: Vinyl-On-Demand
Country: Germany
Price: $124.00
"The new Vinyl on Demand Mexican Cassette Culture box set offers a flashback to what was perhaps the greatest musical era and some of the most original music produced in the late 1970s to mid 1980s. This Box covers many of those experimental artists from Mexico such as Aristeo, Via Lactea & Carlos Alvarado, Hilozoizmo, Decibel, Oxomaxoma with Arturo Romo & Jose Alvarez & Miguel A. Ruiz and Voldarepet with Arturo Meza, Juan Wolfang Cruz and Marco A. Godinez.
This kind of music opened a door to an incredible new chapter for many people in the music-scene; One of those discovering the outstanding and amazing Experimental Music from Mexico as early as 1979 has been Archie Patterson of Eurock-Magazine who started to distribute experimental music primarily released on Cassettes which he had also covered and written about in his magazine established in 1973. At that time, visitors from south of the border came to LA bringing him and a few others music-cassettes and LPs, shortly after coming to buy music and take it back to their record stores in Mexico City. A musical link was created that still exists today. Listeners of Experimental & Electronic Music incl. VOD itself would probably never have heard about such true hidden treasures released on this Box without such protagonistic networking, distribution and promotion back then. Today there still is nothing that sounds like what youll hear when listening to the sounds on these long lost cassette artifacts. In fact, the music never sounded better after to the excellent sonic restoration done by Jos Smolders of Earlabs.
The Mexican Cassette Culture box set offers indisputable proof that music is the one art form that transcends time as well as all cultures and geographical boundaries… Ltd 400 with 24 page LP-sized booklet." - Vinyl-On-Demand.

Title: Midnite Spares
Format: LP
Label: Efficient Space
Country: Australia
Price: $25.00
"The Efficient Space label follows its acclaimed 2016 Sky Girl compilation (EFFICIENT 002CD/LP) with Midnite Spares. Here, Australian music devotees András Fox and Instant Peterson hold a candle to overlooked avant-pop and electronic works by antipodean artists and outsiders working through the 80s and 90s. Through co-presenting their weekly radio show "Strange Holiday", the duo slowly upturned their locale for inspiration - archives, country bookstores, private collections and convenience stores - searching for a place to anchor their own identities in the oceans of the island continent. The ten tracks here acknowledge a minor history, passed on via a network of friends, friends of friends, the libraries of radio station 3RRR and more often than not, the artists themselves. Renowned mixed media artist Maria Kozic enters with the mysterious downbeat of "Trust Me", her partner Philip Brophy responsible for digital and analog sonic construction (as the MK Sound). A recurring character in András and Instant Petersons investigations, Brophy reappears with a score piece from his divisive feature film Salt, Saliva, Sperm and Sweat (1988), recorded as → ↑ → (pronounced "Tch Tch Tch"). Other links are thread under the surface. Melbourne inner north experimentalist David Chesworth explores his Australiana song-craft leading Whadya Want? on "Open Spaces". The short lived project also featured Philip Jackson, whose duo The Couch is restored from Fast Forwards dance issue - a pioneering cassette fanzine published by early-80s 3RRR personality Bruce Milne. The collection binds a certain musicianship thats indifferent to fame or chart success, although some artists unwittingly experienced this before and after. Poets Of The Machines Grace Jones techno-wave was a modest moment for Coral Island and Red Stripe, an English migrant who once celebrated a #1 UK Christmas single with an acapella cover of "Yazoo", while the morbid coming of age electronics of Foot And Mouth is a lesser known prologue to Sean Greenway and Matty Whittles rise as legendary teen punks heroes God. Quickly becoming a modern dancefloor hit, Mumbo Jumbos sole release "Wind It Up" is only now basking in its brilliance. The remaining figures shape the diversity further. Theres Sydney dub addicts The Igniters, Mixs groovy synth song about masturbation and the Cameron Allen and Graham Bidstrup soundtrack for petrol headed "ozploitation" film, Midnite Spares (1983) -- the compilations namesake." - Efficient Space.

Title: Milano New Wave 2014: The Evolution of an Underground Music Scene
Format: LP
Label: Spittle
Country: Italy
Price: $23.00
"The title Milano New Wave 2014 recalls Spittles 2008 compilation Milano New Wave 1980-83, a document of a specific period of the very first wave scene of Milan. But this title is a very clear statement of intent -- The Evolution of an Underground Music Scene is the perfect subtitle for this collection, a kind of "how we are 30 years later," where you can find almost the same protagonists of the first wave. Forget any nostalgic thoughts or the idea of a reunion of friends, though, because the ten tunes that make up this collection are deeply immersed in todays Milan. The albums intent is fully epitomized in the works of State of Art, Out of Limbo, Sound of LLL, Ivories, and La Form, with their new wave, white funk, and 4AD-style baroque embroideries. The other protagonists choose other ways to spread the Milans nouvelle vague: psychedelia for Peter Sellers & The Hollywood Party and electronic drives or Italo disco for Atelier Folie, ltaloconnection, Sigmatibet, and 2+2=5 featuring Trevor Finn. This compilation captures an urge to drive with the utmost care through an underground route started in 1980, consistently following the changes of a complicated metropolis like Milan.

Format: LP
Label: Spittle
Country: Italy
Price: $21.00
"Originally released in 2010. Following an idea of Italian disco guru Fred Ventura to publish some recordings that have remained in the vaults for more than 25 years, and thanks to the skillful "mastering touch" of Giovanni Versari, Spittle Records present a representative and intense snapshot of the Milanese new-wave scene of the early eighties with Milano New Wave: 1980-83 Redux. Twelve tracks that recount the salient steps of the brief but intense career of four Milanese bands from the post-punk of Other Side, to the oblique funk of State Of Art, to the Kraftwerk influences of La Maison, to the electro pop-wave of Jeunesse dIvoire. "Boris Karloff" features Kubrix and 2+2=5 playing with La Maison, forming the group known as Entourage LAsino. These four bands illustrate the mood of an underground scene that burned out rapidly, mostly due to the indifference of the media and recording industry during those years." - Spittle.

Title: Miniatures
Format: LP
Label: Megaphone/Knock Em Dead
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Pressed on 180-gram vinyl; includes 23" x 23" foldout poster. Originally issued in 1981, Miniatures is a concept compilation album that is certain to delight the listener on a multitude of fronts simultaneously. Conceived in 1980 by Morgan Fisher (erstwhile keyboardist for Mott the Hoople) as a means of addressing the scope of music and musicians that he loved but lacked time enough to release, Miniatures draws from an array of artists whose submissions exist within the strict framework of a 60-second maximum track length. The pieces wriggle excitedly in their rapid and unrelenting succession, sequenced with insight sufficient to create an infinitely curious netherworld. Contributors provide their chosen 60 seconds of indulgence -- be it Andy Partridge offering "The History of RocknRoll," noted author/psychoanalyst R. D. Laing giving us a father/son duet of "Tipperary," or Roger McGough reciting "The Wreck of the Hesperus" in its entirety -- and, while each track offers a distinct and separate thrill, the whole of Miniatures is both a monument to the creativity of its time and a living reminder of humanity in its preposterous glory. With no room for filler of any kind, Miniatures is a consistently refreshing revelation. Filled with abrupt, often beautiful, utterances from a bewildering diversity of artists (what other album contains both Pete Seeger and The Residents?), Miniatures is imbued throughout with self-awareness that, beneath an umbrella of shared and voluntary absurdity, scuppers any veneer of remoteness. In its place lies the intersection of naked curiosity with love of music.

Title: Miniatures One + Two
Format: Double CD
Label: Cherry Red
Country: UK
Price: $19.00
"Featuring artists as diverse as The Residents, Robert Fripp, XTCs Andy Partridge, Pete Seeger, Robert Wyatt and The Pretenders Martin Chambers, as well as cover artwork contributed by Ralph Steadman, Morgan Fishers 1980 release Miniatures truly was a first. Overwhelmed with concepts for potential releases, Fisher decided to see how many of these ideas he might be able to squeeze onto just one album. Rather than performing everything himself, he invited 50 musicians he admired to send in tracks of up to one minute in length. They responded with unanimous enthusiasm, and Miniatures was born out of Morgans precise editing and sequencing of these tracks, providing a unique snapshot of the cutting-edge music of the period and achieving legendary status amongst those who cherish such creativity and individuality in the process. Fast forward 15 years, several projects and the development of new realms of communication and data transfer afforded by the internet, and Morgan decided the time was right for a sequel. Little did he know that this project would take six years to complete and involve an international cast of players (taking in 18 countries across five continents), but it proved truly worth both the effort and the wait. The astounding Miniatures 2 brings together over 60 musicians and artists of all genres -- the bizarre, the eccentric, the contemplative, the rebel-rousers, the pioneers and the philosophers and no stone was left unturned in its creation. As with the original album, one minute creations were composed, then sequenced and edited by Morgan, again meeting with rave reviews and an acknowledgement that Fisher had produced something both original and vital to those with any interest in music existing outside the mainstream. Comprising both legendary tiny masterpiece collections, this new set brings together all one hundred and thirteen tracks (yes, 113!) in one two-disc collection for the first time, freshly boosted and tweaked for 2008. New artwork and sleeve-notes have also been provided by Morgan himself." - Cherry Red.

Title: Mobilisation Generale: Protest and Spirit Jazz from France 1970-1976
Format: Double LP
Label: Born Bad
Country: France
Price: $28.00
"1968. France, Incorporated. The entire building was being consumed by flames and was slowly collapsing. Nothing would survive. Out of the rubble of the old world jumped the children of Marx and Coca-Cola, ripping the white and blue stripes off the French flag. Yet, the socialist revolution was more mythic than real and music did nothing to mitigate peoples behavior. It was time for innovation. While singles from The Stones, The Who, The Kinks and MC5 provided an incendiary soundtrack for the revolution, it was Black Americans who truly blew the world from its foundations in the 60s. Ornette Coleman, Cecil Taylor, Eric Dolphy, Albert Ayler, and Archie Shepp left behind the jazz of their fathers generation, liberating the notes, trashing the structures, diving headfirst into furious improvisations, inventing a new land without boundaries -- neither spiritual nor political. Free jazz endowed the saxophone with the power to destroy the established order. In 1969, the Art Ensemble Of Chicago arrived at the Théâtre du Vieux Colombier in Paris and a new fuse was lit. Their multi-instrumentalism made use of a varied multiplicity of "little instruments" (including bicycle bells, wind chimes, steel drums, vibraphone and djembe: they left no stone unturned), which they employed according to their inspirations. The groups stage appearance shocked as well. They wore boubous (traditional African robes) and war paint to venerate the power of their free, hypnotic music, directly linked to their African roots. They were predestined to meet up with the Saravah record label (founded in 1965 by Pierre Barouh), already at the vanguard of as-yet unnamed world music. Brigitte Fontaines album Comme à la radio, recorded in 1970 after a series of concerts at the Théâtre du Vieux Colombier, substantiated the union of this heiress to the poetic and politically-committed chanson française with the Art Ensemble Of Chicagos voodoo jazz and the Arab tradition perpetuated by her companion Areski Belkacem. A UFO had landed on the turntables of French teens, who were discovering underground culture via publications like Actuel, Libération, Charlie Hebdo, Rock & Folk and a vigorous free press. For 20 year-olds in the early 1970s, making music was a political act; they grabbed a microphone to advance a cause, not to become rock stars. While the price of oil skyrocketed and Pompidou went overboard building horrible concrete apartment buildings for public housing and "adapting the city for the automobile," some took refuge in the countryside. Alternative communities formed all across France, giving rise to groups (or rather, collectives) with open-minded structures, cheerfully mixing music, theatrical happenings and agitprop, along with a good dose of acid. Projects bordering on the ridiculous were often tolerated (progressive rock was one of the primary banalities the era produced), while those who followed the route paved by spiritual jazz often ended up elsewhere. The vehemence (if not grandiloquence) of their declarations was carried and transcended by the finesse and brilliance of their musicianship. Simultaneously spatial, pastoral and tribal, the tracks in this collection represent an ideal intersection between a sort of psychedelic legacy, the space jazz of Sun Ra and Afro Beat (then being created by Fela in Lagos): they are as much incantations (often driven by the spoken-word), war cries or poems as they are polemics. 1978. Giscard was at the helm. Punk and disco were busily decapitating the last remaining hippies. Peoples blood was still boiling, but it was already too late. The war was over, lost without anyone noticing. Nevertheless, people still tilted at windmills or talked tough in dead-end struggles; a dream is not so far from a nightmare. We knew that an enchanted era had ended, the hope for a brighter future was now behind us and that we would leave behind nothing for our children but a few records. Indeed, ghosts may still crackle from our speakers, as the 45 spins and Brigitte Fontaine asks Areski: "Hé mais je pense à un truc, on ne va pas mourir dans une minute?" (trans. "Hey, I was just thinking, arent we going to die in a minute?"). Features artists such as Alfred Panou & Art Ensemble Of Chicago, Brigitte Fontaine & Areski Belkacem, Atarpop 73 & Le Collectif Le Temps Des Cerises, RK Nagati, Frédéric Rufin & Raphaël Lecomte, François Tusques, Mahjun (Mouvement Anarcho Héroïque des Joyeux Utopistes Nébuleux), Full Moon Ensemble, Baroque Jazz Trio, Michel Roques, Chêne Noir, and Beatrice Arnac.

Title: Molam: Thai Country Groove from Isan
Format: CD
Label: Sublime Frequencies
Country: USA
Price: $14.50
"Molam is a multi-faceted folk music native to Laos and the predominantly rural Northeastern region of Thailand known as Isan -- home to myriad ethnic groups and provinces, and once a part of present-day Laos. Mo meaning master and lam meaning song, molam literally translates into master singer, but it remains more of an umbrella term covering over a dozen types of lam styles in which male and female singers can be backed by a free-reed bamboo mouth organ called a khaen, indigenous lute-like instruments (the phin or the soong), a bowed fiddle called a sor and a percussion ensemble featuring finger cymbals and hand drums. Lam phun and lam sing are the two molam styles featured most prominently in this collection. Also in the musical family is look thoong, a slower, more tragic style, usually lamenting lost love and perpetual poverty. Examples are heard on tracks 10, 15 and 20. Costumed Isan comedy troupes called Talok incorporate hyper-eccentric molam and look thoong renditions with low, vaudevillian comedy and high social satire on stages and TVs throughout the country. Maniacal examples are heard on tracks 2, 8 and 11. The classic recordings featured here are selections from rare vinyl LPs, 45s and cassettes recorded in Isan and beyond between the 1970s and 1980s. This was a pivotal time when music of the region began to be electrified and integrated with Western instruments. When electric bass, effected guitars, electric organs, kit drums and horns played alongside the khaen and the phin. Molam had never sounded this way before -- and due to the typically ephemeral nature of the music industry and the introduction of the modern keyboard workstation, molam will never sound like this again." - Sublime Frequencies.

"This is volume two in the Sublime Frequencies series, Molam: Thai Country Grooves From Isan. Molam is a multi-faceted folk country music native to Laos and the collection of rural Northeastern Thai provinces called Isan. Molam is an umbrella term used for numerous lam styles. It literally translates to "expert singer" or "expert song." Featured here in volume 2 of this series are lam phun, lam thuy, lam plern, lam dern and lam sing styles of molam recordings from the 1970s and 1980s. All of these forms are built from a tradition that is centuries-old. A few examples of molam/luk thung (Thailands national country music) hybrids are also featured here. In the late-1960s, at the onset of molams modern genesis, electric guitars and organs were introduced alongside the extant folk sounds of the khaen (bamboo mouth-organ) and phin (Thai lute). Hybrid styles were formed with an electrified sound that jived with tradition while creating something entirely new. Much of the music relies on stock formulas, designed primarily to showcase the stylings of various singers from the region. But, as this brilliant collection demonstrates, the rules tend to bend a bit as more adventurous groups experiment with the genre and the production. Sound effects, flamboyant vamping, odd vocal styles or trick intros and finales based on popular rock themes show up now and then, among other playful and dynamic shifts, making for some exceptional listening. So join the folks at Sublime Frequencies in their perpetual and confounding love affair with Thai Isan Molam. Enjoy this rarely-heard music, culled from vintage cassette and vinyl recordings, rescued from the silent places in which theyve rested for the past decades." - Sublime Frequencies.

"Mono no aware", "the pathos of things", also translates as "an empathy toward things", or "a sensitivity to ephemera". A term for the awareness of impermanence, or the transience of things. A meditation on mortality and lifes transience, ephemerality heightens the appreciation of beauty and sensitivity to their passing. In investigating the passing of time, the boundaries between memory and hallucination become blurred; between fiction and reality. The movement of time transforms into an eternal present.

"First in a series of three 10" records. Limited edition, comes with a sticker. Each copy also comes with 24x24 cm screenprint of the front cover. Signed by artist Marcel Bontempi. Back in the late 1950s and into the early 60s, everyone seemed to become obsessed with the possibility that science fiction might become science fact. Movie houses and drive-ins across America were fascinated by the idea of a Martian invasion, with a suitably Theremin-powered eerie soundtrack, not to mention the prospect of the rise of unruly robots. Never one to miss jumping on a trend, the prolific Jimmy Haskell produced a whole album of space-based tomfoolery called Countdown for the Imperial label. Similarly, in the UK, Joe Meekproduced the concept album I Hear a New World to quench his intrigue in the stars, having already peaked the publics imagination with his "Telstar" hit with The Tornados. Meanwhile, in Belgium, in the process of developing new possibilities for sound recording, Tom Dissevelt and Kid Baltan produced the electronic pulse at the heart of "Song to the Second Moon." Aspiring rockabilly performers and early rock n rollers in the southern states picked up on the phenomena while craning their necks upwards. Billy Lee Riley And The Little Green Men, The Wildetones, Buck Trail and Joe Tate all took the idea to new levels of incredulity, while Lynn Vernons instrumental chops for the Tennessee-based Cover label just needed a suitable title to put it in the frame. But if those southern performers were looking to the skies for inspiration, legend has it that Sun Ra And His Arkestra were looking down on them from their own planet." -Stag-O-Lee.

Title: Music of Nat Pwe: Folk and Pop Music of Myanmar (Burma)
Format: CD
Label: Sublime Frequencies
Country: US
Price: $15.50
... Vol. 3. In Myanmar (Burma), many people believe in ghost spirits called Nats. These spirits are historical figures who met tragic or violent deaths. They are said to possess the power to assist or devastate the lives of those who recognize them. A Pwe is a ceremony held to appease a Nat. Pwes are arranged daily throughout Myanmar for many purposes including the achievement of success in business, a happy marriage, or improving ones health. A Nat is summoned through a Kadaw; the flamboyant and charismatic master of ceremony dressed in elegant costume. The Kadaw is a spirit medium, singer, dancer, storyteller and magician who exposes the crowd to a living incarnation of the Nat. Cash money is thrown and cigarettes and whiskey are hand-delivered by the Kadaw to the willing faithful. Audience participants are often ecstatic, spontaneously launching into trance as the Nat spirit possesses their bodies while the melodically ornamental and thundering sound of the Nat Pwe orchestra plays on as perhaps the last great internationally unknown musical juggernaut existing anywhere. This collection of music documents the phenomenon known as the Nat Pwe orchestra. There is absolutely nothing like it anywhere else on earth. If you are looking for some music to groove to, soothe your mind, or relax to, this is NOT for you! This is some of the most jarring, intense and maniacal music being created on earth today. Your head will be spinning amidst the cranked reverb and echo of the vocals as they swirl like locusts in a floating graveyard as the bells, cymbals, and tuned metal bars crash and spill down an endless staircase, while the hand drums and Hsaing-Wang circle of rhythm pound the beat in and out of a million twists and turns until youve either had enough or you get with the program. Turn it up and submit. This is what its ALL about, schoolboy! - Sublime Frequencies.

Title: Music of Tanzania
Format: Double LP
Label: Sublime Frequencies
Country: USA
Price: $28.00
"Music of Tanzania is a spectacular collection of field recordings gathered by Laurent Jeanneau between December 1999 and March 2000. This debut volume of Sublime Frequencies exploration of indigenous Tanzanian music compiles sacred and profane songs and dances of the Hadza, Datoga, and Makonde people. Highlights include stoned ecstatic dancing in a Hadza encampment; a drunken celebration of preteen sexual initiation from a Makonde fishing village; baboon imitations performed on the malimba; electrified Islamic trance percussion; and useful tips for amateur hyrax hunters. Many of these poignant, exhilarating performances come from dwindling minority groups whose way of life stretches back to the Stone Age, and who are capable of creating breathtaking music with anything from agricultural tools to tin cans and plastic tubes. Laurent Jeanneau is absolutely fearless in his pursuit of rare, exceptional and vibrant performances. He views his ongoing documentation of ethnic minority music as an act of resistance to globalization, state-sanctioned "peasant traditions," and cultural homogeneity, and accordingly spends months living under harsh and dangerous conditions in order to capture impromptu performances in their everyday cultural context. Using this method, Jeanneau has self-produced almost 100 albums preserving threatened musical traditions from some of the most remote regions on earth, in addition to compiling multiple volumes for Sublime Frequencies. This limited edition double LP tip-on gatefold package includes striking photographs by James Stephenson and detailed liner notes by Jeanneau." - Sublime Frequencies.

Title: Music Of The Bahnar People From The Central Highlands Of Vietnam
Format: LP
Label: Sublime Frequencies
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"Sublime Frequencies present a collection of music from the Bahnar people who live in the Central Highlands of Vietnam. The Bahnar are famous for their rich musical culture and this is perhaps the first-ever release to introduce the full range of Bahnar musical instruments and styles, including gong ensemble, bamboo zither, bamboo xylophone, bamboo fiddle with mouth resonator, and folk songs. Melodic and hypnotic, this music was selected from recordings made in the Kon Tum province from 2006 to 2015 by Eisuke Yanagisawa. One of many highlights of these recordings is a most unusual and stunning instrument - the bamboo fiddle with mouth resonator - which creates an effect that is on one hand an organic auto-tuner of sorts and on the other Peter Frampton coming alive on his 1970s talk-box. The Bahnars music has been passed down through the ages in each village but is now endangered because of cultural assimilation related to changes in their lifestyles and living environment. These recordings preserve for us the vestiges of a traditional music culture that might no longer be heard in the near future. Includes performances by Kaly Tran And His Ensemble, A Wen, A Thut And His Ensemble, Gong Ensemble Of Kon Kotu Village, Y Tham & A Hieu, A Thao and Gong Ensemble Of The Long Loi Village. Limited edition LP; includes insert of text and images by Eisuke Yanagisawa." - Sublime Frequencies.
