Artist: Y PANTS
Title: Beat It Down
Format: LP
Label: Water Wing
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"After the success of their debut EP, post-punk art rockers Y Pants performed regularly in NYC and other East Coast venues. In 1981 they toured Europe for six weeks and upon return went into the studio to record their only LP, Beat It Down, released in 1982 on Neutral Records (Sonic Youth, Glenn Branca et al). The album extends the bands signature pared down rollicking minimalism. The 10 songs are varied, using surprising and inventive instrumentation. The music is at once filled with a sense of longing and a fierce ironic rebellion. With exuberant precision they brandish their toy instruments and plaintive vocals in emotive expressions of female resistance. In dustedmagazine.com, Seth Watter wrote of the album, I love the sprightly keyboards of The Fly, the gentle lyricism of Lulu, the anger of Beat It Down that comes through in the musics shambling, atonal jangle. The songs covered a huge range of emotions with an entirely new syntax. " - Water Wing. Now reissued on vinyl, nearly 20 years after the CD collection released on Fusetrons short-lived subsidiary, Periodic Document.

Label: Periodic Document
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Reissue of the complete works by this unusual NYC trio from the early 80s. Featuring Barbara Ess (bass, ukulele, thumb drum, vocals), Verge Piersol (drums, vocals), Gail Vachon (keyboards, ukulele, vocals). This features their debut 7" EP on the illustrious 99 Records label (produced by Glenn Branca, from 1980), plus their Tellus comp. track and their album on Neutral from 1982, Beat It Down (produced by Wharton Tiers). Barbara Ess was the co-editor of Just Another Asshole magazine, an ex-member of the Theoretical Girls and a pretty crucial figure in the whole NY no wave scenario. Their sound wasnt the atonal no wave screech I was desperately hoping for at the time, but more of a toy-instrument-inflected performance-art cache of weirdness." - Forced Exposure. Liner notes by Dan Graham, Lynne Tillman, Wharton Tiers, Barbara Barg, Kiki Smith & Gail Vachon.

Title: Y Pants
Format: LP
Label: Water Wing
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"In the late 70s and early 80s everyone had very fluid art identities. One day you were a filmmaker, the next day a musician, and Y Pants was very much a part of it... The lyrics are ironic without being callous, the voices are sultry, the music is repetitive and trance-like... [with] a sense of urgency - like something being driven out. --Kiki Smith. Y PANTS were a three-woman New York band: Barbara Ess, Virginia (Verge) Piersol and Gail Vachon, all visual artists. They played in clubs, galleries and performance spaces between 1979 and 1982. They were as idiosyncratic, edgy, minimal, wry and literate as post-punk no wave got. Furthermore, the fact that these were three ferocious and formidable females was not to be overlooked. --Wolfgang Staehle, thing.net. Gail found a toy piano on the street and started jamming with Barbara on the ukulele. When they were invited to play a few weeks later at TR3 (the short-lived but influential downtown NY music club), they electrified their instruments and recruited the neophyte drummer Verge for percussion on a childrens drum set. Their first gig met with an unexpected wildly enthusiastic reception. The instrumentation was then rounded out with Barbaras bass (former bands Daily Life and The Static), an African thumb drum, and a Casio keyboard for Gail. Verges initial Mickey Mouse toy kit soon fell apart and she cobbled together a modest trap set. They gained a following and soon recorded a four song EP produced by Glenn Branca for 99 Records. They often shared the stage with label mates the Bush Tetras, ESG, Liquid Liquid, Branca and other NYC downtown bands. This release includes their four-song debut EP and two songs never before available on vinyl: Magnetic Attraction (previously released on Tellus Audio Cassette), and the mysterious Kung Fu. In a NY Times review, John Rockwell wrote"... what really makes Y Pants a success is the actual sound of the instrumentals -- raw and driving yet exotic and imaginative in terms of timbre and minimalist structure.

Title: Savage Sons of Ya Ho Wa
Format: LP
Label: Drag City
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"Now that the story of The Source Family is out there, as the subject of an acclaimed book and documentary film (as well as an ongoing series of rare, never-before-released recordings), its time to turn the light back on the records that made this whole thing a story in the first place. In the 1990s, it was a revelation to discover that there was a series of records made by a hippie cult led by a big Santa Claus-looking guy named Father Yod. It was of further interest that these records werent simple, predictable light-rock recitals about Jesus -- far from it! Instead, they were darkly psychedelic, stream-of-consciousness jams, with Father and the members of his band (usually The Spirit of 76 and YaHoWa13) reaching together for divine transformation, and often finding it, as Father screamed, pounding kettle drums ecstatically, while the band erupted with coils of enlightenment rock, over and over. Records like Penetration, Contraction, To the Principles for the Children, and Im Gonna Take You Home were amazing home-recorded documents, adorned with hand-drawn phrases and logos and grainy color shots of what appeared to be truly magical everyday cult life with Father. Super-crazy, inspiring stuff. Savage Sons of Ya Ho Wa is a record that Father doesnt appear on. Well, he doesnt play on the record, but look on the cover -- Yahowa is still in the drivers seat. Musically, YaHoWa13 go it on their own, with Octavius, Sunflower, Djinn, and Rhythm collaborating with Electron, who supplies powerful lead vocals. Whats here is a collection of powerful rock songs that will echo in your consciousness, like the opening track, Edge of a Dream, and the refrain I want to see/Whats going on. The guttural nature of Electrons vocal sound may recall the name of Beefheart to some, and Electron is occupying the same unconsciousness, free in the communal slipstream, with less blues and more country gospel in his soul. This is one of Isis favorites of the original Source Family releases, and one of ours too. This is its first LP pressing in decades. Features all of the original artwork, including a really far-out inner-sleeve, plus new inserts with reflections from Isis. These emanations from the original Source are pure, uncut spiritual visions from the mid-1970s, not to be missed." - Drag City.

Title: Chants and Songs
Format: CD
Label: Swordfish
Country: UK
Price: $14.00
"We The Source Family were given this Sacred Name of God YHVH, the Tetragrammaton by our Earthly Spiritual Father whom we called, simply, Father. We came together every morning and chanted this Ancient and Sacred Name in many forms.  During this transition into The New Age the Age of Aquarius this ancient and Sacred Name is finally going Mainstream so we have come to realize that the time has finally arrived to release our original Chants.   Although some of these Chants are "Beautiful" . . . we could not call this a "Beautiful Album". The Chants are sometimes inspiring and occasionally haunting Chants.  Most of the recordings were made on inexpensive equipment - and it has deteriorated since it was recorded in the early to mid 70s.  At one of our morning Meditations, just before The Source Family dispersed, someone suggested that we try to record all of our Chants. Maybe 20 of us gathered later that morning at "The Sun Palace" . . . and set a $29.98, monaural tape recorder with a tiny, built-in microphone on the floor in the middle of the circle. We have re-mastered all of it, to attain the best quality sound possible from the original tapes.  We encourage you to sing along with these Chants."- Source Family.

Title: God And Hair
Format: 13 CD Box Set
Label: Captain Trip
Country: Japan
Price: $120.00
"2nd edition now available. No longer comes w/ the original oversize box or booklet, but priced at a much lower price. This 13 CD box set collects the complete available recordings of 70s cult rockers from CA, Ya Ho Wha 13. Led by the late Father Yod, who supposedly died in a hang-gliding accident in the late 70s(?), Ya Ho Wha 13 released numerous LPs (and at least one 8-Track) on their own Higher Key label in the mid-70s. Only distributed locally at the time, some of these have been reissued in psuedo-legit (or outright bootleg) fashion in the UK over the last decade (although more recent Swordfish releases are fully authorized), but have never been widely available. These records epitomize the insanity of highly-personalized psychedelic exploration via the fringes of rock music and its subsequent private documentation better than anything else produced by the human race to date. Tribal-acid pound from the familys key group members (Djinn, guitar; Sunflower, bass; Octavius, drums) and freakish vocal output from Yod himself, wailing away on top like the king of the universe. The exact number of of Ya Ho Wha albums has never been clearly specified until now, but this incredible box set appears to put them all in place, plus a few CDs worth of unreleased material. This new edition features a wooden box with wax seal, with the 13 discs contained in 3 plastic cases. Its not as deluxe as the original packaging (which had 13 separate jewel case editions -- but that was for "then," this is for "now." The music still represents the ultimate in the weird & insane world of private press psychedelic documentation, not to be missed. Contains the following albums: 1) FATHER YOD AND THE SPIRIT OF 76: Kohoutek (the debut release on Higher Key from 1973). 2) FATHER YOD AND THE SPIRIT OF 76: Contraction (1974). 3) FATHER YOD AND THE SPIRT OF 76: Expansion (1974). 4) FATHER YOD AND THE SPIRIT OF 76:All Or Nothing At All (1974, with 4 bonus 7" tracks). 5) YAHOWA 13 (1974, with two bonus 7" tracks). 6) YAHOWA 13: Savage Sons of Yahowa (1974). 7) YAHOWA 13: Penetration: An Aquarian Symphony (1974, the masterpiece, one of the 25 most destroyed rock records of all time for sure!). 8) YAHOWHA 13: Im Gonna Take You Home (1974, again! & and another monster record; lets not forget Gregg Breths words from the past -- after all, his copies were handed to him by wisdom: The ultimate acid album there is. Insane vocals and screaming, 100% twisted guitar and total permeated feeling of being completely fucked up! This album is the epitome of the term acid.). 9) YAHOWA 13: To The Principles For The Children (1974-75). 10) FIRE, WATER, AIR: Golden Sunrise (1977, the 8-track only release). 11) YODSHIP (undated, showed up as a UK boot/legit issue a few years ago; classic acid-folk floatation/chant from Osirus & Sunlight with the brothers and sisters). 12) VA: Related Singles (featuring Sky Saxon on most tracks). 13): VA: Unreleased Materials (jamming post-Yod psych from Djinn, Sunflower, Octavius, etc., with Sky Saxon on some tracks)."

"New reissue of this all-time classic from 1974, licensed directly from Father Yods Source Foundation in Hawaii. Previously only available as a long gone bootleg or as part of the 13CD Capt. Trip box, now readily available. This is one of deepest Ya Ho Wha albums, right up there with Penetration. "The ultimate acid album ever! These seminal west coast weirdsters are rumored to have had members of the 13th Floor Elevators and Sky Saxon involved and perform with them. True or not, this album is extremely rare and musically very, very weird! This mystical and drug-influenced collection of lysergic acid heads created some of the scariest sounds ever, definitely NOT for the faint hearted. After you light the blue touch paper, stand well back, because this toxic concoction will liquidize any cerebral matter within a 10 metre radius! Manic, screamed vocals are accompanied by relentless 100% twisted guitar on this mega rare platter. Presented in its original and totally authentic gatefold sleeve with the lovers and the chariot tarot card cover and the proclamation divine communion time is here, little kitties -- YA HO WA 009 --Licensed to give life! I could write a book on the cover. It is an absolute masterpiece of design, and probably the greatest cover in music history. Suffice it to say if you were to fully grasp the meaning and symbology of it, you would have the keys to magically transform your person and environment into your hearts desire and ride the chariot of god into the future of your own will, one with god. -- Djin Aquarian (Guitar) on Im Gonna Take You Home." -Swordfish

Title: Magnificence In The Memory
Format: LP
Label: Drag City
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"The legendary Father Yod was a wealthy man, with a rich inner life, a family of disciples that loved him, many, many women and seemingly unlimited power. So why at the height of his success, did he choose to spend his time playing rock and roll? Having a band in residency at Father House provided him and all his children with another path to travel in their never-ending search for experience and wisdom. Taking time out from their busy schedule as Fathers students and spiritual seekers in the Source Family, Sunflower, Octavius, Pythias and Djin took instruments in hand and, at a mere gesture from Father, turned up the amps and began tapping into the cosmos. First, they recorded themselves. The energy was good. Equipped by Father with instruments and effects pedals to ensure that they could create music that came from the spheres, their sounds provided spiritual growth to everyone in the Source Family. After a time, Father became the lead singer, as a way to record wisdom in a modern, youth-oriented way, Djin tells us. And YaHoWha 13 was born with Sunflower, Octavius and Djin. The music was recorded at a studio in the Father House on a TEAC 4-track reel-to-reel machine and was released on the Source Familys Higher Key Records label. In a couple short years, nine LPs were created, to be sold at the Source Restaurant and at YaHoWha 13 shows. Much sought-after items today, theyve all been reissued. Even more exciting is the material that wasnt released - enough music to fill over sixty albums, all of them mind-blowers. Skimmed from the riches in Isis Aquarians vaults (by Dave Nuss of the No-Neck Blues Band), the nine tracks on Magnificence in the Memory run the gamut of YaHoWha 13s rainbow of styles, from the whispered funk of Camp of the Gypsies to the screaming and stomping of, well, Camp of the Gypsies. Storming through moments with abandon, Father and his Sons never repeated themselves, committing everything they did to tape in a single take. The capacity of their riffs and grooves to sound like German prog bands of the same era, psychedelic rock bands of several years previous or the as-yet-uncreated avant sounds from the indie rock movement a decade away is testament to their ability to tap the source of human inspiration. Adds Octavius, These cuts will always be a source of inspiration. The songs on Magnificence in the Memory were chosen to provide a non-stop exciting listening experience for Source fans and neophytes alike - and as Sunflower has stated, Fathers music is our legacy and represents the voice of the times." -Drag City

Title: Pain/A Thousand Sighs
Format: 7"
Label: Unknown
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"Most-sincere moments of unmediated clarity/genius from improvisational psych-rock collective Ya Ho Wa 13. Father Yods spiritual encirclement and their well-jocked music tends to be discombobulated at best, but these songs record a very different story: brahmanic ascension, heart-wrenching expression, a beautiful simplicity and sincerity that shines through immediately and captivates with our first utterances of astonishment. This, my children, is the real art. Pain & A Thousand Sighs can go blow for blow with the most celebrated of the 1970s rock/psych/experimental cannon, moments of revelation that break through the cult of personality and attempt something much more universal than a simple exercise in improvisation. An essential release."

"Official reissue of this album from 1974 -- one of the heaviest albums from Father Yod and crew. Along with Im Gonna Take You Home, its just the best -- one of the finest sacred space cadet acid-mantra psychedelic death trips of all time, for sure. Captain Father Yod moans & groans a perfect vocal chime over the top of the searing guitar rip of "Djin" and a massive cloak of tribal percussion and general peaked whatsis. Touched & tipped by higher forces you can only dream of -- this contain the most intense passages created by the band Ya Ho Wa 13. One of the best album covers of all time, too. "This was called an Aquarian Symphony back in 1974 to herald through music, the coming of the Aquarian Age, September 17th, 2003. It was ahead of its time. Now its time has come!" -- Djin Aquarian, (guitarist), May, 2003." -Swordfish

Many of the original members of the Family are interviewed and the new and extensive footage from the 70s is featured throughout.

"Back in the early 70s a curious group owned and operated a health food restaurant in Los Angles. The Source Family was a religious group of young people centered around the father figure of Father Yod, a WWII flying ace and spiritual searcher. This group of young people also performed improvisational music backing Father Yod under the name Yahowa 13. When Father Yod died in a hang gliding accident in 1975, the group dispersed. In 2007, with the publishing of a book about the Source Family, the original Yahowa 13 reunited for some shows and did some studio recordings. These are the long awaited results, the first studio recordings in over 30 years by Yahowa 13! Original members Djin, Octavius and Sunflower jam out like the ensuing years never happened. Incredible improv pieces with mind melting guitar and the psychedelic low end throb that all Yod fans will immediately recognize. Literally, the best reunion album of all time!" -Prophase

Price: $44.00
"The psychedelic find of the decade-their long-lost final magnum opus. Rumoured to exist for years-often put down as just rumour though. Here it is, unearthed from tapes thought lost forever but now found after nearly 30 years. The first thing to be released from Ya Ho Wha 13 since 1975. In the spring of 1975 the Family was homeless and was travelling on the West Coast after having been driven out of Hawaii by local laws (they would return later that year for what would be the final time with Father). Ya Ho Wha had taken a spontaneous journey to the East which had culminated in his initiation in the Great Pyramid of Egypt on Easter Sunday. Upon his return to the San Francisco area a warehouse in Corte Madeira was rented for the Family to gather for their Aquarian style morning meditations and meetings to greet the dawn. This is where The Operetta came down. It represents the first musical channelling from the time after Ya Ho Whas Easter Ressurrection in the Great Pyramid (returning transformed) and the last total musical recording he would make with the band. The 6 pieces which make up The Operetta form the culmination of all the YaHoWhan recordings -- thunderous percussion, massive psychedelic guitar swirlings are all vying for space with Ya Ho Whas spontaneous chanting in this intense journey into inner self. The final and most awesome of all their creations. A strictly limited edition 2 LP set presented in a gatefold cover featuring previously unseen photographs from the Familys personal archives, it comes with an insert featuring a transcription of Ya Ho Whas thoughts and comments on the piece when he heard the tapes played back to him shortly after they were recorded.

Format: LP

Country: UK
Price: $31.00
The fifth Ya Ho Wha 13 album to be officially reissued by Swordfish, in their continuing series - licensed directly from the Source Foundation. Has the original artwork, 180gm vinyl and all new 2006-written liner notes by Isis. Plus lyrics! Limited edition of 500 copies. This album was originally released on Higher Key around 1975. "At the end of 1974 The Source sold their restaurant and moved to Hawaii. There they went looking for paradise only to encounter hostile locals, who were reluctant to rent out a pad for Yahowa and his 13 wives, forcing them to temporarily retreat to Northern California. But they eventually reconfigured themselves and returned to Hawaii for a final fractious stand. To The Principles For The Children dates from this period and the tension shows. Its two long tracks are broken into untitled fragments, one of them an ode to woman power worthy of Helen Reddy. More frequently Yahowa locks into heaven chant mode, surrounded by instrumental rings that recall The Magic Band of Abba Zabba. Very possibly, this album explains a great deal of the Fathers philosophy - that is, if you can make out the words, of which there are many. By way of compensation the ensemble seamlessly blends effects and percussion, and when the kidschorus of Yahowa starts up at the end youll know youve already been somewhere." - Byron Coley.

"Now-Again Records presents exact reproductions of two of the four 7" singles that the Iranian psychedelic rock musician Kourosh Yaghmaei released before the 1979 Islamic Revolution. Taken from Back from the Brink, the only legitimately licensed Kourosh collection, these recordings were thought lost after Islamic fundamentalists took control of Iran. They werent: Kourosh had protected them -- along with key ephemera from the 70s. Here, fans of the 7" vinyl format can purchase Kouroshs last two singles as he originally released them. The first single presented here, Hajme Khali, is a masterful psychedelic dirge that was included on this labels Forge Your Own Chains anthology. Akhm Nakon, the b-side, is perhaps Kouroshs most famous song in the West and is psychedelic funk music at its best." - Now-Again.

Title: Up From The Sewers
Format: CD
Label: Lion Productions
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"Super political, rocking, anti-establishment communal band (c. 1970) put together as a result of the Kent State Massacre. As the Euphoria Blimpworks Band, fronted by Howard Berkman from morose garage punksters the Knaves, they played demonstrations and student strikes when they werent opening for blues royalty -- or being the first band to play the yard at Cook County Jail. They were inter-racial, anti-war, Stop the Bomb, free love hippies, the wildest of the wild kids. And this is the quintessential anarcho-hippie record, a surprisingly well-engineered indie effort which came inside home-made silk-screened jackets, with twisted, poetic lyrics (Dylan or Arthur Lee and Love? you decide), and funky, rocking bones -- political, sociological, ecological, reflective and free-love sexy. The Karma Dusters really cook on the up-tempo tracks, sounding at times like a cross between The Blues Project and Dylans band circa 1966, augmented by some dazzling violin. This excellent sounding master-tape reissue has two bonus tracks; it also has two booklets -- one is for the outrageous and explicit Gonzo history of the band and their urban commune; the other is a wrap-around booklet for lyrics, all served up together in a Mylar plastic sleeve.

Title: Eliminated Artist
Format: USA
Label: Issue Project Room Distributed Objects
Country: LP
Price: $19.00
“Known for his uncompromising tape and synthesizer work, Pete Swanson has pushed the limits of electronic music since the early 2000s. Since stepping down as half of formative underground duo Yellow Swans, he has subverted the genres of noise and electronic dance music as a solo artist. For Eliminated Artist, the third LP release from ISSUE Project Rooms Distributed Objects imprint, Swanson ventures into new territories with two works at the intersection of electronic and acoustic sound, created in collaboration with New York instrumental quartet Yarn/Wire. Combining electronics, tape loops, and modular synthesizer with Yarn/Wires unique ensemble of two pianists and two percussionists, both works were recorded live at ISSUE Project Room, initiated as part of the ensembles 2011 residency at the Brooklyn venue and presenting organization. For the title-track, "Eliminated Artist" (2012), Swanson recorded improvised rehearsals by Yarn/Wire, from which he crafted an exacting, repeatable framework for live performance. A combination of live signal and rehearsal recordings were then constructed by Swanson into a live electronic mix, ranging from tranquil chromatic textures to unhinged distortion. "Corrections" (2014) emerged from a series of recorded fragments Swanson made using "the Putney," an early EMS VCS3 modular synthesizer, at Rotterdams WORM studios in 2013. Over two days of rehearsal, Yarn/Wire and Swanson developed acoustic arrangements to integrate with the earlier recordings. Clattering, intricate rhythms combine with soaring synthesizer-pitches and heavy, percussive beats; the result is atmospheric, physical, and precise. Yarn/Wire: Ning Yu, Laura Barger: piano; Russell Greenberg, Ian Antonio: percussion. Pete Swanson: EMS VCS3, electronics, and tape. "Corrections" recorded live at ISSUE Project Room on May 1, 2014; EMS VCS3 for Corrections recorded at WORM Studios, Rotterdam, December 2013. "Eliminated Artist" recorded live at ISSUE Project Room March 22, 2012. Mastered by Rashad Becker. Limited edition of 500 on 150-gram vinyl.” - Distributed Objects.

Title: Shit On A Shingle
Format: Triple Cass/Art
Label: Petri Supply
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
49 copies made. "In about 1991 the Yeast Culture studio (Incubator) was at the Kalberer Hotel Supply Warehouse in Seattle. We then began a project to gather together every recorded moment from the last few years. For this, several reel to reel recorders were used to create very lengthy multitracked stereo montages from all available cassette master recordings. Over a period of weeks, all sounds that we had recorded from before 1987 up to about 1991 were transferred to reel in a vast production process. The results of the reel production process were outputted back onto three cassettes, using higher speeds, in order to fit the material into the format of three 45 minute sides of sound collage. These sounds tapes have never been released in any way until now. They were, however used in the process of the 7" single Wormhole/Birdbath which was published in the 3x7" single set Circusirus (Smorgasbird); the sounds of that single, however were processed in a very complex way, including a total shift to higher frequency, in a way which removes it completely from the three master tapes. The Wormhole/Birdbath recordings utilized several performers in a few sessions. Each session had three performers, two being the Yeast Culture core of Abo and Allen, and the third being another person such as Key, Birdshit, or Dale. Performers simply used a bank of switches to route sound to other members of the triad (these custom switch nodes were called Chaos Boards, and they formed a small network). Sounds were chopped and moved around the stereo spectrum in this fashion. The chaos tapes are not the same as this Shit on a Shingle set, but play a part in the new 2013 remix. Shit on a Shingle times out to about 3 albums worth of pure sound collage – on cassette. There isnt repeated material. The sound result has elements of the Rena Leicia “sound," but is more dynamic and ever changing. Its a kind of sound that Yeast Culture was developing which did not appear on any compilations. Its a more opened up free form process, with a wiggly abstract perspective. We hope you find this 7" Shingle to be our best yet! Its the gravy, Shit on a Shingle." - Petri Supply.

"Violinist/vocalist C Spencer Yeh & unrivaled saxophone elder-titan Paul Flaherty team up without the assistance of acclaimed drummer Chris Corsano for the first time. Along for the jamz is bonkers Boston trumpeter Greg Kelley. After performing numerous times and honing a distinct group dynamic as a trio over many years with celebrated percussionist Chris Corsano, Yeh and Flaherty decided to try it out one-on-one. The record comprises of the best from two live sets from a short duo tour in the Northeast -- at the celebrated venue Issue Project Room in Brooklyn, and Nom DArtiste in Boston. With minimal editing, this is the sound of two people tearing at the limits of their instruments, these iconic configurations of metal and wood; hurling their respective accumulated life experience into one another, exposed and raw. The duo is likely one of the most dangerous configurations for people to interact within, musical or otherwise. Greg Kelley on trumpet is added to the mix and the results mutate into an even more mysterious form -- the trumpet is indistinguishable from the vocals; the saxophone creaks so the voice doesnt have to." -Important

"This collaborative work between US improviser C. Spencer Yeh (Burning Star Core) and European sound artist Lasse Marhaug is one of the most diverse and rewarding efforts by either artist. It is the result of hours of recording, cut up and spliced together, giving the listener a glimpse into various short snippets of the sessions. Harsh quick sonic blasts, violin scrapes and drones, field recordings, vocal exercises, room clatter and more are used in the process, but the way that they are assembled and woven together provides a nonstop experience that goes best with highly concentrated listening. Still the result is so varied that something new can be heard on every listen; a recording so intense you can never truly grasp what is actually happening; most definitely a highlight in both artists discographies.

"Double A sided cassette reissue of a severely limited one-sided LP, and what might be C Spencer Yehs most trying, challenging and rewarding foray into a world previously unknown to him, and us: his world of song. Songs 2002 contain what are perhaps subtle homages to early Eno and primo era Bowie vis a vis the studio treatments of the raw sounds with which were more familiar in his previous work. Yehs songs work within two generalized veins: ala Enos early attempts to communicate liquidly within a rigid language and structure as pop/rock, and similar to Keiji Hainos sense of mythos and personal pulse. Recorded over 10 yrs ago, ultimately, these songs can stand aside the most difficult of outsider aesthetics. There is nothing really new here, aside from what is essentially editing and narration. Might just be me, but I think hes found love, both in what inspires him, and a new found expression." - De Stijl.

And many are droney records, which as all record nerds secretly know, are about as tough to lay hands on as your own boogers.

Toilets flush, wind whistles, straw bubbles spew, Donald Duck talks to you on a fritzed cb radio, and bits of a strangled laugh track flop like dead fish. Go further into the dunes, and skeletal, all-thumbs acoustic guitar licks start to be circled by esophageal vultures who attack the spiney dead.

"C S Yeh (C. Spencer Yeh) flings open the door and steps inside with Transitions, his first full-length album of songs after years of establishing himself as one of Earths top humans in experimental music and unbound improvisation, both alone and in collaboration, on record and onstage. The effect Transitions has on you may or may not depend on your familiarity with Yehs past work; regardless, his path in music has always been about and rather than or. And the addition to his catalog of work that Transitions represents is nothing short of startling: songs that flit between sculpted guitar riffs and measured, just-shy-of-lush synth-pop, wry lyrics delivered in guileless tones, the remarkable fact that Yeh made every sound on the record. All the same, his most ardent fans will have little trouble understanding the move and recognizing this distinct voice. ‪Its plainspoken confidence and intrepid spirit are as present as when hes carving drones or emitting speckled and serrated noise. Transitions is simply a different form ‬of Yehs unmediated expression. As youd guess, for a career outside guy really coming inside for the first time, Transitions involved quite a bit more behind the scenes strategizing than it would for some indie band on its third album. Think of how English can sound so jarringly beautiful on the tongue of non-native speakers: everything fits even when, maybe especially because things might seem ever so slightly off. Thus we have a new language of melodies, ones of a spirit with say, Slapp Happy, but which wouldnt sound out of place on a Magnetic Fields record. Ultimately, the pop heart on display is characterized by the artful mind behind it - and besides, when we say pop are we talking popular, or populist? Perhaps the space were trying to sketch here could be found between the artists covered on Transitions: Father Yod and the Spirit of 76 and Stevie Nicks. Perhaps citing the varied examples of Jim ORourke, Dave Gahan and the aforementioned Peter Blegvad in artful songcraft could be useful (whether or not they were inspirations). Perhaps were not talking about a space at all, but instead a particular sort of freedom in a music landscape defined by cages and enclosures.

Two years later (february 2010), they did it again, same room, same set-up, same magic. The best takes from those sessions are on the two sides of this Lp.

Price: $12.00
"The cooperative of composer/improvisers John Wiese (Sissy Spacek) and C. Spencer Yeh (Burning Star Core) reveals itself again, presenting a collection of new works titled Cincinnati. So far Wiese & Yehs previous full-length documents have been culled from live performance situations and one could site Cincinnati as the duos first studio album. Recorded face-to-face in late 2007 at Ashworth Tap Room in Cincinnati OH, Cincinnati reveals further unexpected developments and strategies of this ongoing partnership. Familiar machineries were primed, but an increasingly alien attitude was fed through and processed into churning and bewildering shapes. The results of these sessions were catalogued and surgically isolated into specimens by Yeh; a little editing employed to carve the forms somewhat presentable, but no "studio trickery" to mask the organic nature. Mastered by Saff Mastering to sharpen the bulbs and polish the blades, the whole of the fourteen tracks form a monumentally intimate body touched by indeterminate intuition, instant composition, and interior logic. Wiese and Yeh first joined together on a stage in Columbus OH, and since then have participated in the No-FI/CMN "Free Noise" 2007 tour in the UK, as well as fireworks-laden travels through coastal, midwest, and southern USA. With many finished missives yet to be issued, and many ideas discussed but not yet realized, the combined restlessness and curiousity of the team insures that "Cincinnati" gestures not only towards the past and present, but the future as well. Cincinnati is available in an edition of 500 copies in the increasingly alienated compact disc format. The included 8-page booklet contains a pictoral documenting the typical meeting between the two players."

"The second chapter of SStudios (Software Studio Series). SStudios is a new venture in the Software Recording Co.s expanding catalog that invites artists in the field of electronic music to create collaborative works of quality and vision. Inspired by the historical intersections of live performance and studio post-production, Wake Up Awesome is a modern kind of fusion in technique as well as genre. At its core are three artists highly experienced with both instant and labored composition. Together, they found the studio generated improvisations were iteratively developed by each on their own. Passages of real-time improvisation duck and swerve into electro-concrete tangles of samples, edits and juxtaposition -- all youd want out of a world of mechanical possibility. If it sounds intentional on the record, it was. If Yeh and Marhaugs more electronic affinities in their respective practices place them as the producers, then Lees cello often leads the drive as a sort of soloist. The resulting conversation is genuinely both serious and iconoclastic. All three artists have a history of dialogue, but this is the first time theyve hung out for the record -- were very happy that they did. Limited numbered edition of 1,000.

"The malformed compositions of C. Spencer Yeh and Sick Llama come from opposing spectrums of noise music, though their similarities are undeniable. Whether it be Yehs solo piece for violin or Sick Llamas gunked tape work, the spirit of improvisation shines through.  On Yehs track, the churning sounds of metal scrapes and light tinges, like crossed electric static and growing, buzzing drones are the result of one violin.  His unique approach to the instrument marks him as one of the most exciting improvisers today whether it be with his solo work or through his work in Burning Star Core.  Sick Llamas untitled piece is one of his most concise and interesting tracks; crushing and dirty with the hiss of tape static.  Coming from the stoned mind of Heath Moreland of Fag Tapes, the expected tape aesthetic is transferred to vinyl with a compilation of cut up compositions, evoking a series of mystery sound sources.  In an edition of 500 7"s in proprinited fold over sleeves with art by Maya Miller of Heavy Tapes/Religious Knives." -Arbor

"Sounding like Laddio Bolocko playing Aufgehobens songs, this amazing quartet shares a seriously mindblowing connection with the huge underground noise scenery in the United States. This half-an-hour free-form session between these Ohio-based dudes is a long electroshock torture which features Yeh (experimental violinist/electronic musician with a highly growing reputation around the world) playing bass here, Jewell (experimental drummer/electronic musician also involved in Pink Reason and Psychedelic Horseshit) on drums/electronic junk and John Rich/Jon Lorenz (Wasteland Jazz Unit) totally immersed in a hyper-amplified and nihilistic sax playing.

Title: Desolation Peak
Format: LP
Label: Emerald Cocoon
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Yek koo returns with primal minimal maximalism – vocal deconstructions rapping inside raw distortions of emotive gut.  All of us are beacons in the void called Desolation Peak, where Kerouac once sat listening to “laconic crackling voices” coming through the radio as the only human sound, bouncing back and forth against the peak of negative space, like the human form with its layers of noise stark against the silence of nature.  Intimately confrontational, Desolation Peak owes more to east African ritual chants than it does contemporary guitar modes.  Illuminated by the same electricity as A Handful Of Dust or Heather Leigh Murray and like Jandeks best work or Gates Metric it is a moment of humanity clawed back from an inhuman world by sheer indomitable outsider will.  Vocals multiply & fall back into themselves, guitars bloom like flowers of grit, spells are chanted, the guitar wielded like a weapon, worn like a medallion, until the whole record collapses on itself into a slab of groaning gleaming feedback.  Expertly harnessed by Justin Pizzoferrato at Sonelab, MA.  Mastered by Mark Alan Miller. Cover Art by Helga Fassonaki.  Edition of 259 on 45rpm quality Czech vinyl." - Emerald Cocoon.

Title: Love Song For the Dead C
Format: LP
Label: Emerald Cocoon
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Released to coincide with her installation at Human Resources Gallery in Los Angeles as the first part of her musical hagiographies series (more info on that project here) Love Song For The Dead C is a procession of drunkenly stumbling conceptual experiments. Between its humble paste-on sleeves swarms a double LPs worth of ideas crammed into a single LP, tumbling over each other in strange shapes. Bookended by two renditions of a Persian love song (one sung in Farsi, one in English) that trade in the same echoing confusion as her recent Alone Together 7", Love Song For The Dead C belongs to the tradition of the great outsider sides of the early 90s (Twin Infinitives, Market Square, Harsh 70s Reality) more than it does to anything of this desperately conformist epoch. Like those records it has a purity of form resulting from an individual working to tie the knots of the past into the shape of a personal present, outside of scene or market concerns. In Bye Bye Blackbird dissonant chiming slowly unfurls into a vast chasm of sound over a mesmeric nine minutes. A disorienting or disoriented guitar wafts through a wah-ed swirl of delay and distant Dead C samples in Rose The Provider. The Top Is The Bottom is a harrowing slow-motion crawl through alleys and sewers of room tone as captured by the tunnel-vision fidelity of the trademark Yek Koo dictaphone. This is living, breathing, human music � no ringtones, no product placement � just heart, tears and breath, easy and free. 
Edition of 288, with handmade bootleg style paste-on covers. Mastered by Sean McCann." - Emerald Cocoon.

"What happens when one of the top bands on the classic rock circuit decides to throw caution to the wind and reveal themselves as leaders of the underground "urine" scene? A HIT RECORD! Urinal Street Station by THE YELLOW RIVER BOYS is, at last, an album for those who believe that the human mouth smiles the most when it is being used as a makeshift urinal. Ten catchy, radio-friendly songs (in a musical style somewhere between Lynryd Skynryd and John Mellencamp) may not win over any converts to "OUR" lifestyle-but will certainly function as an enduring soundtrack to those who already partake. With the vocal support of "new music fans" TIM HEIDECKER and GREGG TURKINGTON, and with JAMES VALENTINE of MAROON 5 fulfilling the same role that Eric Clapton did on The Beatles million-selling White Album, you cannot go wrong stocking Urinal St. Station on your shelves. The golden yellow vinyl pressing has the potential to sell by the truckload not only to fans of classic rock n roll, but to the growing demographic of those who like to recycle their urine through their own bladder, or over someone else." - Million Dollar Performances.

"At All Ends is the third major record in the Yellow Swans vast body of work. This record is an assured record of chiming drone and heady pelvic sky fuckery. New sounds emerge from the Yellow Swans camp that are more hushed, and whisper with the logic of deep space. Whereas the last record was a laser beam guided minimal transmission with dark overtones, this new release injects sonic clouds full of pink oxycontin. Guitar lines sketch out a melodic vision that stupifies with hypnotic repetition with layer upon layer of rich and dense guitar chug build into multi-orgasm songscapes that leave the loins sore and the mind spent. An exhausting journey into pleasure and single-mindedness. Elements of lush drone stretch the proceedings in vast strokes. Yellow Swans veer towards krautrock territory with this new record, and it will go down in the big books as their most beautiful and vibrant record thus far. beautiful single pocket gatefold jackets with art by Jamie Potter." - Weird Forest.

Title: Going Places
Format: LP
Label: Type
Country: UK
Price: $22.00
"2013 clear vinyl repress; no longer includes the bonus CD. In April 2008, American noise duo Yellow Swans (comprised of Peter Swanson and Gabriel Mindel) announced their decision to split. The news was a shock to the noise community, not least because the band had become a regular fixture in the live arena -- touring incessantly and garnering a huge, dedicated following in the process. What the duo neglected to announce, however, was that a final album was already in the works, and while they would not tour together again, steps were being taken to finish off their crowning achievement. Going Places is Yellow Swans conclusion as an entity, and sees the duo looking inward to create their most introspective work to-date. It shouldnt be surprising given the climate in which the record was put together, but without the constant touring, Swanson and Mindel allowed themselves to take their time on the record and allow the tracks to breathe somewhat. The resulting collection is distilled and reflective, retaining the grit and damage of their earlier work but adding layers of harmony and, maybe more surprisingly, pulsing rhythms. The improvisational, psychedelic washes that have always enriched their sound are tempered and controlled, leaving an almost Kosmische narrative. The drifting, subtle beauty that characterized 2007s At All Ends has emerged even further in the mix, and Mindels guitar is allowed to play foil to Swansons piercing noise. Comparisons could be made to Tim Hecker or even Brian Eno in parts, but Yellow Swans harsher edge sets them apart from many of their peers. No doubt some listeners might be put off by Yellow Swans noise background, but make no mistake, Going Places is one of the most haunting and engrossing albums yet to appear on the Type label. Swanson and Mindel prove, if proof was ever needed, that there is beauty in dense cacophony, and Going Places is the perfect way to close a startling career." - Type.

The listener is introduced to a mostly quiet, subtle psychology of fear, childhood trauma and locked cellars. Power comes from the absence the familiar.

"I have been begging the Massachusetts based acidfolklorist Joshua Burkett to do a record on Ultra Eczema for years. I met him through Ron of Sunburned Hand Of The Man about 5 years ago, when they did a duo radiosession at Radio Centraal, which later got released as a Pewtr Trust CD-R on UE. I was struck by Joshuas mix of shyness, amazing and heavy acoustic guitar playing and his encyclopedic knowledge of weirdo music. His music is usually so silent that it makes you all tense and walk on socks instead of wooden shoes. The Yellowbeard LP is a collection of adolescent/teenage recordings made by Joshua Burkett between 1990 and 1994, probably right before the time he joined Wayne and Kate Village in Vermonster! Some of the recordings were overdubbed in 2008. This is a beautiful collection of collaged scrambled bedroom madness, teenage wilderness, guitar noise, acidfolk, almost psych, organ fuckery, space between the tape deck and the player, outsider beauty!

"Yen Towers is Copenhagens Simon Formann, known for his work as a member of Lower and Age Coin.

The EP opens on uneasy garage-inflected terrain, giving little preparation for the hypnotic glances of ones own ficto-reality that is to come. The tracks swing with the circling motion of its minimalist techno components. This is club music for the world market." - Posh Isolation.

Super in-demand for the last decade plus (even if fucking Christgau gave this one a B+ upon release) and now finally available -- buy it now before the cops show up." - FE. "Timely reissue of this late 60s folk/psych classic from husband and wife team Jerry Yester and Judy Henske. Yester had previously enjoyed an element of fame courtesy of his stint with The Loving Spoonfuls, but following the bands demise in 1969, he set about producing this little gem with acclaimed folk singer Henske and a bunch of pals which were said to have included Ry Cooder and David Lindley. Farewell Aldebaran , which is often heralded as one of the most proficient and creative albums of its genre, with Henskes incredible range of vocal styles (during her short solo career she had effortlessly made the transition from comedian to folk singer and then on to an accomplished rock singer) elevating the album to a higher plane. Her mind-blowing vocals on the opening track, the hard-fuzz Snowblind, gives an early clue to Henskes talent and range, and although this particular vocal style only features on the one song, the sheer diversity of her singing makes every track on this highly original and experimental album a unique experience." - Radioactive.

Title: Boris
Format: CD
Label: Syn-Phonic
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
⿿Yezda Urfa was/is a Midwestern progressive rock outfit who recorded their debut album ⿿Boris⿝ in 1975 on a shoestring budget, and pressed a few hundred copies with the idea of getting a recording contract and some radio airplay. This effort failed on a massive level but, undeterred, the band pressed on. The album is a bizarre mixture of symphonic progressive, hardcore punk, and even a bit of bluegrass, maybe best compared to a high-speed collision between Yes, Gentle Giant, The Dead Kennedys with a dash maybe of Hüsker Düs ⿿Land Speed Record.⿝ Quirky enough for you? As an on-line reviewer noted: ⿿This music is unanchored in any conventional sense of rhythm, meter or melodic development. This is music that is wildly extreme in its form and style, often manic, but often successful as well. A low budget affair, but the quality of some of this music demands the listeners attention nonetheless. Boris was recorded at the end of what the band describes as their ⿿acoustic⿝ period, and this is what accounts for most of the difference of the material that is common to both of the bands releases. Boris And His Three Verses, Including Flow Guides Arent My Bag, 3, Almost 4, 6, Yea and To-Ta In The Moya all appear on both Yezda Urfa albums⿿on ⿿Boris⿝ they feature a great deal of acoustic guitar and piano in spots that were later re-scored for electric instrumentation. Another difference between the renditions of these numbers on ⿿Boris⿝ and the later versions is the lack of any vocal harmonies on the later efforts. Some of the best elements common to good symphonic progressive rock are, obviously, a blend of electric and acoustic instrumentation and vocal harmonies. These two elements make the earlier recordings on ⿿Boris far better than the later, somewhat slicker versions they recorded. There are other differences as well... keyboardist Phil Kimbrough tends to favor Moog, electric piano and clavinet on ⿿Boris,⿝ while the later recordings feature more synthesizers and organ... and vocalist Rick Rodenbaugh was in better voice on ⿿Boris⿝... and to my ears at least, the tempo of these tunes is ever so slightly slower, just enough to make a noticeable difference for the better.⿝ In essence, an exercise in mad genius and dexterity, from a band who never took themselves too seriously." - Syn-Phonic.

"New recordings of solo piano pieces by Ethiopian composer Girma Yifrashewa, the first release of Yifrashewas music outside of Africa. Born in Addis Ababa in 1967, Girma Yifrashewa is a worthy new torchbearer of African pianism. His highly personalized approach to the piano likens him to Ethiopian composer Emahoy Tsege Mariam, while his use of Ethiopian pentatonic scale within the Western Art Music format places his compositions in conversation with more academically minded work. Traditionally Ethiopian in melody, cinematic in vision, and deep in beauty, his compositions occupy a lyrical middle ground between classical and jazz that is supremely listenable yet defies easy classification. Following the passing of Ethiopian composer Ashenafi Kebede in 1998, Girma moved beyond his conservatory repertoire and began his career as a composer, penning the composition "The Shepherd With The Flute" - an homage to Kebedes most famous work, "The Shepherd Flutist." Since then, Yifrashewa has established himself a pre-eminent composer of Ethiopia, touring Africa and Europe extensively on cultural commissions. The emotional directness and unique quality of his work make it destined for wider popularity, still." - Unseen Worlds.

"After some five years in the making, at last the first official collaboration between Chicago acid-punks PLASTIC CRIMEWAVE SOUND and Minneapolis noise/folk guitar legend MICHAEL YONKERS has come to fruition. The sessions for this collaboration began back in 2004, and a seemingly perfect one it is-driving guitars, reverbed static, rippling electronics and Yonkers urgent vocals meld into a freaked-out stew that truly bleeds out of ones speakers. Side two is perhaps even more fierce, as it captures the PCWS and Yonkers first live appearance together at the first Million Tongues festival in Chicago, 2004.

Title: Period
Format: LP
Label: S-S
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"Carbohydrates Hydrocarbons is not only a great collection of punk-induced psychedelia, as heavy as anything can be without sludging to death; it was also the best thing Yonkers had done since Microminiature Love, and a high point of the Blind Shake. A few years later Yonkers and the Shake got together for a brief split/collaborative album on Learning Curve Records. Good stuff but not quite as powerful as the two aforementioned monsters. Now comes Period, Michael Yonkers and the Blind Shakes first full album together since Carbohydrates Hydrocarbons and their best yet. Like Yonkers and the Shakes previous work, Period is tuneful and heavy and punk and psychedelic, but there is also something more. The album has an energy which is dark but not sinister. Yonkers lyrics are intense, even painful, but his voice is strong. The swirl of sound created by his homemade guitar is other worldly, and when woven into the guitar/baritone guitar/drum throb and punch created by the Blind Shake, Period is nothing less than great. Seriously, after six straight months of listening to Period, I rank it up there with such classics of heavy weirdness as Von Lmos Future Language, High Rise II, and Monoshocks Walk to the Fire. Period is even worthy of a listen next to Blue Cheers Vincebus Eruptum. Period by Michael Yonkers with the Blind Shake will stand as a classic. I am sure of that. Vinyl copies of Period are housed in a Stoughton old style tip-on sleeve." S-S

"The second of two startling Yonkers releases is an eight-band LP of solo, modified guitar improvisations. These recordings were picked from a number of tapes representing the entire works recorded by Yonkers that utilized a severely altered Steinberger knockoff guitar (that has since been retired). The music was recorded on a high-speed four-channel cassette machine, further manipulated during mastering. This is the noise record that lucky regional Yonkers aficionados have been hoping for since witnessing his infrequent, brain-scrambling, all-instrumental performances - and then some! Vinyl-only edition of 303 numbered copies in a gorgeous, four-color hand-screened jacket by Minneapolis artist and printer Dan Black complete the scrumptious package." - Neros Neptune.

Label: MY Via Neros Neptune

Price: $140.00
"After recording the album Micro-Miniature Love at Dove Studios in the fall of 1967, Michael Yonkersretreated to his tiny basement studio. Utilizing only a couple of tube-type reel-to-reel recorders, Yonkers used methods he describes as primitive forms of "sound on sound" or "sound with sound" to get multi-channel effects. In 1974, after taking out a loan and having his basement tapes mastered at Sound 80 in Minneapolis, Yonkers made the bold move of simultaneously releasing four separate LPs of music from four previous years of recording: Grimwood,Michael Lee Yonkers, Goodby Sunball and Borders Of My Mind (with Jim Woehrle). These records are now legendary. Reissues have appeared on Sub Pop, Drag City, Neros Neptune, and S-S Records. The very first batch of these four LPs came back from the manufacturer with covers that had paste-on slicks which were cut in a slightly uneven fashion. Almost all of the shrink was ripped from the jackets. This provided enough irritation to cause Michael to demand the pressing plant re-do them all. He had a second pressing done, with shrink-wrapped new jackets containing new records. These records are long gone. But heres where it gets interesting. Michael kept around 100 or so of the least-off center jackets (with records, sans torn shrink) of all four titles and placed one of each in manilla envelopes. The intention was that they be sold as a set, sent out as promotional packages or simply given to friends. Michael even created a special paper bookmark (each individually initialed by hand and decorated with five Xeroxed photos of Michael) plus a separate 7" x 4" blowup insert of the Michael Yonkers logo to go with the sets. But with an additional 2000 new LPs to sell - and no distribution - a little less than half of these "fun packs" were dispensed with. The majority of these original sets ended up forgotten in Michaels various storage spaces for over 40 years. They were recently found... and here they are. In essence, these are the true original pressings. When theyre gone, theyre gone. (Note: many of the original manilla envelopes are a little ragged from being shuffled around over the many years, but the original contents and extras are as good as new.)” - My Via Neros Neptune.

"The music for Goodby Sunball was written during the recovery period following serious spine surgery. The surgery had not gone well, I was laid up for months, and had to learn to walk again. So, the music was written using an acoustic guitar, while laying in bed. When I was able to be up and around more, I started recording the songs...a little at a time. It took about 7 months. I recorded the tracks in the little studio I had in my place. It was all recorded on two-channel, tube type machines (back and forth between machines). The vocals were done in the bathroom, to give an expanded sound."-Michael Yonkers. Limited to 500 copies." -Secret Seven

"It would seem that Yonkers followed a trail that psychologically parallels the sun life highway, and his private flight took place in a presumably small hut, nestled on a lemonade lake, and from his chimney wafted rainbow smoke, in the fantastical haven of the mystical, mythical grimwood town for which the rec is named, as he attempted to allow light / space into areas of his psyche that hadnt seen enough of either in some time." - Karl Ikola, liner notes to 2007 CD reissue.

"The legend of Michael Yonkers has taken its place among the great stories of underground rock and roll music. Hed been playing rock and roll for nearly forty years when Microminiature Love was finally issued in 2003 (Sire had taken a pass way back in 1968). A thousand noise-rock ears pricked up -- for Yonkers, a reclusive Minneapolis dancer-musician with a handful of self-released records over the years, had seminally prefigured proto-punk/metal/noise through his own brand of amped up garage rock. Since the revelation, Michael has picked up where he left off, exploring blown-out frequencies with collaborators around the globe, and his work has claimed a seat next to immortals like The Fugs, Velvet Underground, Sonic Youth and even ol Jimi. What a lot of folks STILL dont know is that Michael put aside his hand-built fuzz boxes and bellowing vocal style in the 1970s to record and self-release some truly curious albums of lilting loner-folk music, including Grimwood, Goodby Sunball and Michael Lee Yonkers. Of this holy trio of albums, only Grimwood has yet seen reissue. Throughout this time, Yonkers layered madrigal-like vocals, simple acoustic guitars, and used electricity in only the most subtle of ways - all to serve his somber, mesmerizing songs. This brings us to Lovely Gold. Planned as the fourth LP in his 70s trilogy, it was never released - a true crime, because it is an exotic work of homespun brilliance. Recorded in 1977 on a four-channel tube type tape recorder that Michael built himself by combining parts of other machines, it is perhaps his most multi-faceted solo album. The trademark Yonkers chug appears (though more stripped-down and dreamlike) and even some spraying acidic guitar on the title track, but the sweeping choral voice arrangements on gorgeous hymns like Will It Be are entirely unique and indeed lovely creations. Whats more, while digging through his archives Michael located previously lost cuts intended for the album, including the harrowing, near-Krautrock glide of Nevermore. Utilizing original photos and the exact layout specs/fonts/and notes of the planned 1977 Lovely Gold release, a lost classic at last becomes available -- once again! How many more reside in the Yonkers vaults? Only time (and Michael) will tell..." - Drag City.

"Theres yet another musical color revealed on the uber-rare private press, Michael Lee Yonkers, which was home-recorded in 1971-72, while MICHAEL YONKERS was working in an unheated, hundred year-old warehouse. He ran the forklift and drove the truck for the company, hauling extremely heavy loads of industrial surplus and scrap metal. His co-workers almost exclusively listened to country and western music, which inspired him to create and perform an oddly countrified set on weekends, when he would play in coffeehouses and at house parties. Yonkers would do an acoustic set of original "country" and "rock" music for the first part, then he would get out an "electronic music machine" that he had built himself and play "electronic music" (quotes all added by Michael himself). Michael Lee Yonkers is a recording of some of the "country" songs he was doing at the time, as well as a few songs he wrote for the children at the house parties (like "Mrs. Jennings Fruit Fly Farm," recorded live, where you can hear the kids going nuts). The tracks were recorded on a variety of tube-type, reel-to-reel tape machines, which give them a unique analogue sound that begs comparisons to outsider hillbillies like Peter Grudzien, Holy Modal Rounders and The Legendary Stardust Cowboy, as well as outlaws like Townes Van Zandt and Kris Kristofferson." - Drag City.

Silkscreened and hand-painted covers. Limited edition one-time pressing. "Do you know the numbers on people who are in it for life? Theyre small. Real, real small. Kids & jobs come along to make regular adults out of most musicians. Even the ones who get that glossy magazine coverage or score that signing bonus can usually be found selling insurance 10 years down the line. A select few balance against family time. Fewer still find jobs teaching, and often have no energy left for their own stuff. Nobody, and I do mean nobody, just keeps going. Its too hard. Michael Yonkers makes the energizer bunny look bad. He started making his own distortion (by slicing speaker cones) in the mid-1960s, built his own pedals, souped up his own guitars, and hes still making distortion now that hes in his late 60s. Even more unusual, his sound has gotten, if anything, cruder along the way. This is a collection that Yonkers put together from CD-s that he gave out to friends once a year between 2001 & 2008. Whats here are hard rock songs, and theyre goddamn well-written. Most of what youll hear are huge, scratched up, convulsive whorls of distortion piled all on top of themselves until you can barely discern the pitch underneath. Wow...The guy also ran a record & ephemera shop named Loonland during the 80s. Hes been a sheep breeder & a dance choreographer. Hes built a home studio or two, at least one of which had to work while he was confined to a hospital bed that was installed in his house. Yonkers suffers from adhesive arachnoiditis, a nerve swelling that seizes up your back, brought on by a 1971 accident where 2000 lbs fell on him, and permanently exacerbated by a nasty dye used to get xrays of the spine.... His voice has aged a little, but Its still got a vibrato to it, mostly masked by the guitar here. But its better suited for these lyrics, as theyre a kind of burned & haunted you rarely hear." --excerpt from Angela Sawyers liner notes.

Otomo Yoshihide is one of the most important musicians of the Japanese underground/avant-garde. He moves between free jazz, noise, improvisation, composition, and the unclassifiable with a generosity that opens up the possibilities for expression in all of the constellations with which hes involved. After the earthquake/tsunami struck his native Fukushima in early 2011, Otomo played very little outside of Japan, dedicating a considerable amount of energy to the relief efforts there, including the annual international Project Fukushima concerts. He played at Café OTO in 2013 for two stunning multi-day residencies, including a revision of the remarkable piano solo captured on this LP. Influenced by his father, an engineer, Otomo began making electrical devices such as a radio and an electronic oscillator in his early teens, and his first experience of creating music was by making sound collages using open-reel tape recorders while still in junior high school. Soon after entering high school, he formed a band which played rock and jazz, with Otomo on guitar. It wasnt long, however, before he became a free-jazz aficionado, listening to artists like Ornette Coleman, Eric Dolphy and Derek Bailey; and hearing music, both on disk and at concerts, by Japanese free jazz artists including the great alto sax player Kaoru Abe and guitarist Masayuki Takayanagi. In 1990, Otomo started what was to become Ground Zero. Until it disbanded in March 1998, the band was at the core of his musical creativity, while it underwent several changes in style and membership. Since Ground Zero, Otomo has embraced minimal improvisation, film music and the jazz/big-band conceptions of his new jazz quartet/quintet/orchestra." - Otoroku.

Butcher played duos with both Otomo and Sachiko and joined the quintet for a rousing sextet: stunning twin saxophone interplay, the unparalleled openness of the Marsh/Edwards rhythm pairing, Sachikos deft high-frequency interventions and Otomos guitar at the center -- moving between abrasive textural invention and suggestive single note runs of ever-shifting melody. Otomo Yoshihide is one of the most important musicians of the Japanese underground/avant-garde.

Sachiko M has been active as a sampler player since 1994. Early in her career she was involved in the cut-up and "plunderphonic" (or "plagiaristic") sampling movements. In 1998, in a drastic departure from those approaches, she originated the revolutionary method she uses to this day -- manipulating the samplers internal test tones. With the 2000 release of Sine Wave Solo, her extreme solo recording consisting entirely of sine waves, Sachiko M suddenly became the focus of intense interest on the international scene, including European music festivals and Britains Wire magazine. Since then, shes been active on an irregular basis in a number of projects -- including the experimental electronic music duo Filament, the electronics trio I.S.O., a duo with Toshimaru Nakamura, and the duo Cosmos with Ami Yoshida -- in addition to collaborating with various musicians from other countries. Evan Parker has been a consistently innovative presence in British free music since the 1960s. Parker played with John Stevens in the Spontaneous Music Ensemble, experimenting with new kinds of group improvisation and held a long-standing partnership with guitarist Derek Bailey. The two formed the Music Improvisation Company and later Incus Records. He also has tight associations with European free improvisations -- playing on Peter Brötzmanns legendary Machine Gun session (1968), with Alexander Von Schlippenbach and Paul Lovens (a trio that continues to this day), Globe Unity Orchestra, Chris McGregors Brotherhood Of Breath, and Barry Guys London Jazz Composers Orchestra (LJCO). John Edwards has played with Sunny Murray, Derek Bailey, Joe McPhee, Lol Coxhill, Peter Brötzmann, Mulatu Astatke, and many others. Tony Marsh was a vital presence in Londons improvised music scene right up until his shocking passing in April 2012. John Butcher is a saxophonist of rare grace and power, who has expanded the vocabulary of the saxophone far beyond the conventions of jazz and other musics, to encompass a staggering range of harmonics, multiphonics, overtones, percussive sounds, and electronic feedback. But his playing is far more than merely an array of special effects: its characterized by an intensity that propels it into strange new places that are both incredibly beautiful and deeply exhilarating. Otomo Yoshihide (guitar), Sachiko M (sampler), Evan Parker (saxophones), John Edwards (double bass), Tony Marsh (drums), John Butcher (saxophones, side B). First pressing of 500.

Title: Electric Day
Format: LP
Label: Bureau B
Country: Germany
Price: $26.00
"LP version on 180 gram vinyl. The Bureau B label reissues Yous Electric Day, first released in 1979 on the small German label, Cain. As synthesizers grew more popular from the mid-70s onwards, an increasing number of groups swapped the classic instruments of a rock band for sequencers and synthesizers. Pioneers (and paragons) of this electronically-created music included, of course, Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze, Manuel Göttsching et al, who represent the "Berliner Schule" (in contrast to the Düsseldorfer Schule which developed around Kraftwerk and company). A hitherto less celebrated, yet outstanding exponent of the Berliner Schule was the Krefeld combo You. Udo Hanten and Albin Meskes teamed up with another iconic figure of electronic music, Harald Grosskopf, to issue two fantastic albums as the 1980s began. Without disowning their Berlin role models, You nevertheless came up with their own hypnotic mix of sequencer patterns, synthesizer melodies, pulsating drums and sporadic acoustic guitar phrases. Now and again they even ventured into experimental territory. Tracing Yous path from the idea of founding a band to the release of their first LP, one encounters a host of illustrious characters from the electronic/Krautrock music scene. Peter Baumann, for example, a member of Tangerine Dream for so many years, was the first to hear the material played to him by Hanten and his guitarist Uli Weber at his Paragon Studios in Berlin. They also met Harald Grosskopf here, a member of Rolf-Ulrich Kaisers "Kosmische Kuriere" and former drummer with Klaus Schulze. Grosskopf was a member of Manuel Göttschings Ashra band at the time. Which just leaves the sound engineer, the legendary Conny Plank. It was he who suggested that You and Grosskopf get together to set up the Spiegeltraum Studio in Krefeld, with Grosskopf supplying the recording gear and Hanten the musical equipment. Grosskopf completed Synthesist, his most famous work, before You recorded Electric Day halfway through 1979. It now appears with four CD-only bonus tracks on Bureau B. The musicians: Udo Hanten, Albin Meskes, Uli Weber, supported by Harald Grosskopf (using the pseudonym Lhan Gopal at the time)." -Bureau B

Title: Time Code
Format: LP
Label: Bureau B
Country: Germany
Price: $26.00
"LP version on 180 gram vinyl. The Bureau B label reissues Yous Time Code, first released in 1983 on Rock City Records. As synthesizers grew more popular from the mid-70s onwards, an increasing number of groups swapped the classic instruments of a rock band for sequencers and synthesizers. Pioneers (and paragons) of this electronically-created music included, of course, Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze, Manuel Göttsching et al, who represent the "Berliner Schule" (in contrast to the Düsseldorfer Schule which developed around Kraftwerk and company). A hitherto less celebrated, yet outstanding exponent of the Berliner Schule was the Krefeld combo YOU (Udo Hanten, Albin Meskes). Their debut album Electric Day immediately launched YOU into the elite echelon of Germanys electronic music scene. It would take four years for them to deliver their sophomore LP, entitled Time Code. If Electric Day was characterized by Harald Grosskopfs pulsating drums and Uli Webers solo guitar, Time Code emerged as an altogether more electronic affair, with both Grosskopf and Weber having left the project. Reduced to a duo, YOU largely remained faithful to their style, but expanded upon it. Time Code displays more range and variation than its predecessor. Downtempo and faster numbers alternate and sugar-sweet melodies are followed by expanses of ominously dark or crystal-clear synthesizers. Hanten and Meskes new sound was further refined by the use of drum computers and the omission of guitar. The album perfectly illustrates the transition of electronic music from the 1970s to the 1980s. Sequencer patterns owe much to the legacy of the Berlin School (Berliner Schule), while the synthesizer and drum computer sounds heralded the advent of the new decade. The level of interest and excitement was particularly high in Italy, where songs from the album featured heavily on the radio. Listeners were clearly impressed by "Live Line," which has resurfaced in various techno productions over the past 20 years, either as a cover (by Diolac Duvai, for example), or as "Elektro Message" (by Gigi DAgostino)." -Bureau B

Title: Damp Circuits: The Golden Era of Synthesizers in East Asia - Volume 1
Format: 7"
Label: Sham Palace
Country: USA
Price: $9.00
"This special limited edition 7" EP showcases the fantastic and underrated synthesizer sounds of Hong Kongs Oscar Young. These four instrumental cuts from 1976 see the prolific musician and producer modernizing Chinese folk melodies and rocketing them into the space-age. Solid synth leads are backed with fuzz and wah-wah guitars, tight funk bass lines and haunting organs -- integrating shades of surf, soul, rock, and disco into his unique sound. Multifaceted rhythms feature punchy electronic beats peppered with hand-drums and other natural percussion, while synths of all shapes and textures pan throughout the spacious mixes. Youngs adventurous and unpredictable technique and production never missed a beat -- unless it was intended. Oscar Young -- known also as Yang Road Fire, or Yang Daohuo -- worked prolifically in the East Asian rock and pop music scene between the 1960s and 1980s. He first gained acclaim as an arranger, working with singers such as Teresa Teng, Xiao-Jun Huang and go-go bands like the Apollo, as well as creating scores for movies. His classical background allowed him to create a perfect hybrid of traditional Chinese music and new electronic sounds and instruments of the time. Young released multiple volumes of albums: his own series spans over 30 volumes, while his collaborations with the Apollo Band yielded an equal amount. His music can be compared to the likes of Martin Denny or Dick Hymans synthesizer-infused exotica, or the high-profile Moog pioneers, Perry & Kingsley. The tracks featured on this EP are from his booming period of electronic experimentation during the early-to-mid 1970s, and represent a mere sliver of his giant catalog and immeasurable talent -- a short-but-sweet introduction to the wondrous synthesizer world of Oscar Young." - Sham Palace.

Dennis Young: "Back in 1982 at the age of 24 I bought my first recording equipment a -- two-track Teac reel-to-reel-tape recorder. I already owned a number of analog synthesizers, an electric & acoustic guitar, various effect boxes, and a full drum set. The music was recorded live over a two year period (1982-1983) when I was still playing in Liquid Liquid. I was busy with the band but I still found time at home to experiment with my own sound using various instruments and vocal effects. In early 1984, I bought my first four-track cassette machine which ended my live reel-to-reel recording phase. The tapes were boxed up and put into storage for the next 30 years. About six months ago, I was going through some old boxes and happened to find the tapes again. I was curious to hear what I had on those tapes so I purchased another Teac reel-to-reel-tape recorder.

"My love for electronic music goes back to the late 70s when I decided to buy my first synthesizer, a rare used vintage Davolisint made in Italy, after seeing Keith Emerson perform live with ELP. This lead to my discovery of more electronic music artists using synthesizers such as Klaus Schulze, Tim Blake, Larry Fast, Edgar Froese, Brian Eno, and Cluster just to name a few. My musical challenge was then to create my own electronic music using this instrument. After experimenting in the early 80s with live recordings using a reel to reel tape machine I purchased my first multi-track recording system in 1984. When Liquid Liquid was on hiatus I was able to devote full time to this music and do professional recordings at my home studio in Edison, New Jersey. I added more synthesizers to include a Korg Mono/Poly, a Korg Poly Six, a Moog Rogue, and later the Korg M1. Every track was put through various delay and reverb units and I added vocal parts and along with guitar where I felt it was needed. The music resulted in three now out of print cassette only recordings entitled Concepts (1985), Reflections (1987), and Quest (1988). They were all mixed at Gabriel Farm studios in Princeton, New Jersey, with the help of Andrew Gomory who owned the studio and who himself was a keyboardist. Thanks to Bureau B I have been able to go back in time to put together what I feel are the best songs from that era for you the listener to enjoy." - Dennis Young.

Price: $29.00
"This classic minimal music album is now available again on vinyl for the first time since the 70s. La Monte Young, widely acknowledged as the father of musical minimalism, is one of the most influential contemporary composers. Yet he has strictly monitored his own discography and his music is rarely heard. Born in a log cabin in rural Idaho in 1935, Young became a key figure in the New York underground art scene of the early 1960s. He made vital contributions to the Fluxus movement and initiated the use of lofts as performance venues. Most important of all, his exploration of sustained tones, unorthodox tuning, high volume, and long duration changed the course of 20th-century music and ushered in new ways of listening. This LP, initially issued on the French Shandar label in 1973, is a crucial document, preserving two manifestations of Youngs pioneering creative imagination. Its sounds lift the listener out of routine temporality into a prolonged and personal here and now; an intimate kind of time that no clocks can measure. The first side contains a performance by the Theatre of Eternal Music in which the voices of Young and his partner Marian Zazeela are combined with the trombone of Garrett List and the trumpet of Jon Hassell. Although the immediate impression created by the music is that it changes little, close listening reveals intricate activity in the high harmonics where unexpected patterns and phantom melodies skitter across the surface of the musics enveloping drone. Young and Zazeela developed their vocal technique through their intensive discipleship of North Indian singing master Pandit Pran Nath, and traces of that influence can be heard in their subtle ornamentation of the sustained tones. Unadorned sine waves form the Drift Study on the second side of the LP. To a seated listener this Drift Study seems a very pure form of minimalist musical drone, but if one moves around the space in which the piece is playing, dramatic variation in the loudness of different frequencies will become apparent, while the listeners movement will itself alter the structure of air molecules in the room, affecting the way the piece is heard. Its a fascinating probe into the nature of sound, hearing, and spatial awareness.” - Aguirre.

"Matthew Youngs genre-bending, acclaimed 1986 release Travelers Advisory reappeared as a reissue on Drag City/Yoga in 2010 and quickly sold out. We now return to Youngs first effort, Recurring Dreams, dating back to 1981 and the apex of the Eno/Berlin schools influence over a myriad of American followers. Young created eight EMS/Rhodes pieces solo, subtly weaving in variable-speed Revox manipulation of traditional rock instrumentation with the lightest of touches. As anyone who has heard Travelers Advisory already knows, Matthew Young could never be a mere imitator. What all too often amounted to predictable schtick in the field of early 80s home electronica, Young made personal, delicate, discreet, and discrete. Wordlessly illustrating its titles -- Version, Inversion, The Forest Of Lilacs, and Mistral (a strong, cold, northwesterly wind), Young conjures vivid, progressive tones of the unknown. Recurring Dreams requires repeat listenings to fully reveal its Bonsai-like qualities. Fans of Erik Satie, JD Emmanuel, private-issue new age or the more placid side of minimal synth should take note of this one." - Drag City.

"Mixing a hammered dulcimer and a drum machine makes no logical sense. Taking your lyrics from instruction manuals is not a good idea. Covering Michael Hurley in 1986 is about as out of step with the times as you can get. And yet... somehow this 25-year-old 12th-century/folk/electronic album feels perfectly up to date and dare we say...cooler than anything else youll hear this year! Drag City and Yoga Records proudly present Matthew Youngs Travelers Advisory. Recorded at home, made and distributed at the end of the first age of vinyl, Travelers Advisory is a startlingly original work: an utterly unique mix of vocals, dulcimer, banjo, Casio synths, and electronic drums, Matthew played every instrument & recorded every note. A graphic designer by trade, he too created the album artwork. Aside from a few traditionals and one cover version, Young composed everything. The haunting song Young chose to cover, Werewolf, comes from another original, Michael Hurley, approximately 20 years before Hurley came back into fashion with the kids. The striking blend of electronic & traditional should appeal to fans of Arthur Russell; another pioneer responsible for an unlikely wedding of drum machine and cello. Opener Objects in Mirror does indeed evoke Russells intimate home recordings compiled on the posthumous Calling Out Of Context. So much private press music comes off as the result of some sort of vanity -- private press is often nothing more than code for vanity press. Hearing Travelers Advisory, one is struck by the vivid image of an artist who is full of ideas and learning how to express them as he goes along out of a sense of necessity. Young is the receiver and transmitter of strange ideas drifting in the ether, and renders them quite understandable to any open-minded listener." -Drag City

Title: Regression
Format: LP
Label: Ideal Recordings
Country: Sweden
Price: $19.00
"Wolf Eyes Nate Youngs Regression series has provided some of the most compelling dread-electronics spewed out by the North American underground in years, with instalments released by Demdike Stares DDS label and Aaron Dilloways Hanson, as well as NNA Tapes and others. It all began back in 2009 with this first volume issued by Joachim Nordwalls Ideal label, an incredible set thats now being released on vinyl here for the first time ever. Young is one of those artists whose output is instantly recognizable, his take on primitive electronics is both innovative and unnerving, and in recent years has really dominated the stylistic direction pursued by Wolf Eyes. Its a kind of creaky, bare-boned deconstruction of classic horror scoring jolted by noise and industrial motifs, sounding somewhere between Demdike Stares early work, John Carpenter, and Mica Levis by-now-classic soundtrack to Under The Skin (2014). You could neither classify Regression as a noise record nor an ambient one, instead the synth dissections and tape treatments more closely reference early electronic music. "Trapped" offers little of the claustrophobia suggested by its title, although the continual woody knocking sounds and filthy oscillations do engender a sense of unease, while "Dread" brings to mind the Desmond Briscoe soundtrack to Nigel Kneales The Stone Tape (1972). "Under The Skin" returns to the more esoteric, intangible sound designs that characterized the albums opening, writhing around in a spluttering, tactile fashion thats at once sonically rather beautiful but deeply sinister, modulating through grisly synthesizer gestures while more textural, percussive sounds flood through dub-style tape delays. Young has an uncanny ability to make sonic extremes sound incredibly seductive, and this volume is perhaps the most engrossing exposition of that unique ability. Cut at Dubplates & Mastering.

Label: Demdike Stare
Country: UK
Price: $27.00
"Avowed Nate Young fiends Demdike Stare have trapped the Wolf Eyes lynchpins stunning third Regression volume for a necessary vinyl edition on their eponymous label. Other Days represents Youngs most labyrinthine incursion into the nether zone between waking life and nightmarish, cryptographic noise. The recordings stem from an exhibition of lathe-cut etchings and paintings by Young and his wife, Alivia Zivich, installed at Tokyos Haus Gallery. The process involved designing original images for 22 8" x 8" pieces of acrylic, which in turn inspired 22 audio compositions which were then lathe-cut into the acrylic. The process of lathe-cutting transformed the audio itself, and vice-versa with the original images, resulting in a constant mutation between sound and image with no end in sight. The process ended abruptly, with Young and Zivich surrendering to rest or sleep. In key with the rest of the series, Regression Vol. 3 (Other Days) irreversibly ruptures or at least corrupts the liminal boundaries of its infected victims with Lynch-ian aptitude. Dragged down to Youngs beta pitch we become petrified, sleep-paralyzed witnesses to possessed hallucinations. His drums and tape-stretched drones land in time-dilating polymetric patterns, again uncannily recalling the timbre of vintage Photek drums -- struck objects, metallic gongs and loose-skinned bass -- only strung-out like the sounds of morphine-dosed poltergeist and caterwauling harpies. We could say the secret lies in his sense of deferred anticipation, but then it wouldnt be a secret, yet theres something so ill and unquantifiable about his sense of timing thats just dangerously affective." -Demdike Stare.

Title: Regressions Blinding Confusion
Format: LP
Label: NNA Tapes
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
Includes digital download code. "Over the past few years, iconic noise artist Nate Young has been carefully crafting his own signature solo sound, as evidenced through his progressive recordings and performances with American experimental music staples such as Wolf Eyes, Stare Case, Demons, and Moon Pool & Dead Band. Regression Blinding Confusion enters a new era, retaining the techniques and studies from his previous work and raising them to new levels. Intense compositional building and structure seep through each track, traversing new ground melodically while still upholding Nates patented over-bearing weight of dread and slow-burning darkness at all the right moments. Deep, percussive brutality and pulsing neurosis mesh with somber burial hymns, held together by Youngs technical prowess and mastery of his chosen gear. Each frequency is given its own unique role and characteristic voice, deeply chilled by the arid space of decay via tape manipulation/disintegration, howling its way through the grooves of the record like a cold wind of dead space that billows throughout, unrelenting. Atonal, morphing, and modulating bass lines pulse and plod their way through, like the unseen presence of the undead ascending a creaking stairway, leading upwards toward a nebulous void. This establishes a truly horrific atmosphere while honoring primitive technology, refined with a thick dose of originality." - NNA Tapes

Format: LP
Label: NNA Tapes
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"The latest solo recording from NATE YOUNG, founding member of Michigan noise legends WOLF EYES. This record represents a new direction for Young, as he deviates from trademark aggressive murk-and-misery sounds of his previous works, and instead opts for a queasy, subdued zombie lullaby consisting of bizarre rhythms, synthetic melodies, and almost gamelan-sounding ritual sleepwalking. Featuring an epic closer with contributions from past & present Wolf Eyes members AARON DILLOWAY and JOHN OLSON. This is a record to sit and get absorbed in, a non-linear travel through a different place altogether. Mastered by LUPO at Dubplates & Mastering in Berlin." -NNA.

Country: Japan
Price: $23.00
"LP version. The fourth release from Roland P. Young on EM Records sees him moving ever deeper, earthbound and rooted, yet simultaneously flying further out, expanding his exploration of untethered celestial realms. Recorded in 2014 following a move to Tel Aviv, the title Confluences hints at the blend of cultures and histories in his new homeland, and is reflected in the music, which shows a range of cultural influences, filtered through Youngs unique sensibility and vision. This is a calm, spiritual set, evidencing an inner comfort that was less prevalent on his Brooklyn recordings. This is not to imply that RPY is no longer searching; this release brings to fruition the promise of earlier recordings such as Isophonic Boogie Woogie (EM 1045CD/HJ-LP) and Istet Serenade (EM 1087CD/LP), made complete via Youngs multi-instrumental chops on sax, bass clarinet, kalimba, and keyboards working in tandem with his rhythm and bass programming skills, his multi-track studio mastery, and an ever-evolving sense of musical form and drama. The confluences of cultures are of course swirling throughout this release, but also the confluences, as noted above, of the earthy and the celestial, as well as the temporal confluences of the past, present, and future. Perhaps more than any of his previous releases, Confluences realizes Youngs description of his own work as "Afro spiritual minimal electronic space music." This release is the next stage of Roland P.

Title: Hearsay I-Land
Format: LP
Label: Palto Flats
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Palto Flats is pleased to release an overview of the mid-80s works of Roland Young, perhaps best known for his spiritual jazz record, Isophonic Boogie Woogie. This release comprises the entirety of his 1984 four song 12”, I-LAND, as well as most of his 1987 LP, Hearsay Evidence, both released on his label, Flow- Chart Records. This release presents a different side to Rolands story, and features both vocal and writing contributions from his wife Risa. On Ballo-Balla, Risa sings over a simple and spacey 808 rhythm and bass sequence, in a track worthy of later Larry Levan and Paradise Garage. On other tracks, Roland sings in a higher pitched, soulful voice over similarly rudimentary analog sequences, to create a relaxed atmosphere, with lyrical content touching upon love, social commentary, emotions, and more, all in a deeply personal way. The tracks from both releases have been remastered from the original master tapes and pristine vinyl, and were sequenced in collaboration with the Artist to create a cohesive full length album of his mid 80s works. These songs fit squarely in the mold of Jeff Phelps, Dam Funk and the like, and are meant to be enjoyed both at home and in downtempo DJ sets, and as a historical document and pop record. Rolands other solo released LPs are Isophonic Boogie Woogie (Flow-Chart), Istet Serenade, and Mystiphonic, all on the Japanese label EM Records. He was a principal songwriter in the early 80s no- wave band, The Offs, whose first record featured a Basquiat cover, and had a sound comparable to The Contortions. Roland is a classically trained jazz clarinetist who performed at a young age with Alice Coltrane. He moved to New York City in the early 80s and has continued to make music since, with a diverse and substantive discography of self-released spiritually influenced jazz and new age releases. The artwork for Hearsay I-Land is an original ink drawing by Nathan Antolik, and is based on the original album cover of I-LAND. First run of 500 copies on black vinyl. Download Card included." - Palto Flats.

Also carrying on from previous releases is the all-encompassing warmth and organic/oceanic feeling of Youngs music, a rootedness that has been present since his early exposure to Charlie Parker, on through his San Francisco years and ever forward, linking past, present and future through deep American soil to his world-embracing current music, all united through his "Isophonic" philosophy.

"MIE are delighted to be releasing the excellent Amaranthine on vinyl on the 16th January 2012. Richard is one of our favourite artists on the UK experimental scene and to release this new, singular work by the man himself is very exciting for us. Bringing rhythm to the fore, Amaranthine is built around layered percussion and Youngs ever present vocals. The asymetrically patterned underlay is scored for drums, household objects and handheld percussion; at points scything fuzz guitar cuts through the sense of ritual with abandon and deep synths bubble up out of nowhere before dissipating into solo shakuhachi. Amaranthine is another typically atypical Youngsian release in which he ventures deep into uncharted musical space, all the while retaining his essential Youngs-ness."- MIE.

Title: Autumn Response
Format: LP
Label: Jagjaguwar
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"A spartan folk-pop record filled with tinder-box intimacies, composed of some of the shortest songs ever recorded by Richard Youngs. The simplest form of trickery comes from Richard Youngs restrained use of an acoustic guitar, bringing it back to Youngs basics. Twenty-six seconds into I Need The Light, the first track off the album, the listener is confronted with the pivotal element of the record, the drawing line between the hardcore Youngs purists and fairweather fans: the track, like others on the record, features Youngs double-tracked voice splitting in two -- as one overlaid performance veers away from the other. This gesture warrants such a title King of the Progressive Minimalists -- which is often used beside his name by critics -- as the confident inclusion of such an effect grants it legitimacy. Youngs voices slipping away from one another is on par with other intense representations of singularity such as Donald Judd and Malevichs Suprematicist Composition: White on White. Pop is a gesture, a stance, a pose. Autumn Response is a singer-songwriter album, as Youngs fingers slip over the steel strings with little feet and whispery toes, his gently prophetic songs evoke Roger Waters and the folk phase play is sure to appeal to fans of Animal Collectives Sung Tongs." - Jagjaguwar. 2007 release.

Title: Beyond The Valley Of Ultrahits
Format: LP
Label: Jagjaguwar
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Make a proper pop album." Thus was the simple dare handed to Richard Youngs from his friend Andrew "Paz" Paine during their weekly Sunday meet-up. Ever the modest master, Youngs said in accepting this friendly challenge that he merely endeavored to capture the "beats and hooks" of contemporary pop. We present the results here as Beyond The Valley Of Ultrahits. Among bright, hypnotic loops, Youngs voice finds its inner Bowie. But let it be known: this collection of house-inspired gems displays much more than a capacity for pop emulation. Its a confirmation of Youngs craft and prowess, no matter the terrain. With enviable grace, experimental minimalist Youngs sets his sights on the pop world and claims it as his own. Youngs heretofore unknown love of Pet Shop Boys and the Madchester sound is reimagined via his unique avant sensibility and atmospheric wand strokes. Originally released in 2009 as a very-limited CD-R on Paines Sonic Oyster label, Jagjaguwar is honored to present Beyond the Valley of Ultrahits, remastered and on vinyl for the first time." -Jagjaguwar

Were extremely excited to help Richard add another singular entry into his discography. Core to the Brave hits with a shock and never lets up. Composed of what appears to be blown out bass & spastic drum rhythms, these tracks cascade into shimmering loops of distortion, their weight reaching a critical mass that often feels likes its on the verge of ecstatic collapse.

Title: Festival
Format: CD
Label: Table of the Elements
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"For this recording, Scotsman Richard Youngs brings a mixture of emotive balladry and avant-garde sound collage to the fore. Guitar feedback and distorted synthesizer drones introduce the album, suggesting it may be tough going, especially given that their is a high-pitch tone that could shatter windows cutting through the mix. The largely instrumental album switches down a gear from the courageous experiments that see clock chimes, Casios, and electric guitars interweaved, and the drones give way to the lilting ballad "Sea Is Madness" -- which has a heartbreaking refrain that resonates with the same desperation as Robert Wyatt performing "At Last I Am Free." This closing track could easily bring one to tears if it werent so distractingly intricate with its minimalist phasing effects. Wondering if Youngs could top this monumental achievement, he subsequently explored this reduced song style further on the album Saphie and floored his fans with his ability to write heart-wrenching ballads as well as being a super-sonic noise architect. Festival is certainly a standout in his expansive catalog. Coming as it does on Table of the Elements, one could only expect a genre-defying exploration." - Sylvie Harrison, All Music Guide

Title: Inside the Future
Format: CD
Label: Glass Redux
Country: UK
Price: $17.00
"Richard Youngs is a British musician with a prolific and diverse output, including many collaborations. Based in Glasgow since the early 1990s, his extensive back catalog of solo and collaborative work formally begins with Advent, first issued in 1990. He plays many instruments, most commonly choosing the guitar, but he has been known to use a wide variety of other instruments including the shakuhachi, accordion, theremin, dulcimer, a home-made synthesizer (common on early recordings), and even a highway bridge -- not to mention an a cappella album. For many years, live performances were very occasional and almost always in Glasgow; he has stated publicly that he finds live performance "incredibly nerve-racking: stomach cramps, tension headaches..." However, in the 2010s, he has begun to perform more regularly (including a tour of New Zealand in 2010 and a UK tour in support of Damon and Naomi in 2011), and many of these shows have been predominantly vocal. Inside the Future is a collection of ten short acoustic songs heavy on overdubbed voice and the textures of acoustic and classical guitars. Experimental, yet firmly rooted in traditional song form, it is both heartfelt and determined by chance, improvised and carefully structured." - Glass Redux.

Title: Like A Neuron
Format: LP
Label: Dekorder
Country: Germany
Price: $18.00
"Richard Youngs is a prolific British musician (located in Glasgow) with an extremely diverse output. Dusted Magazine once wrote he is "defying strict genre classifications since the early nineties, swapping labels, styles, partners, motifs, and recording techniques as the desire has struck him". So his new album for Dekorder might not be a surprise to anyone following his career. Still, a self-proclaimed all-electronic "ecstatic House record" comes somewhat unexpected. With a line of distinctive synthesizers often used for Techno/House Music Youngs recreates the energy, euphoria and frenzy of these styles without ever trying to recreate the music note by note. The final outcome sounds like recordings made by aliens who have received transmissions about House Music but never listened to the music itself. The album reminds of the sound of hallways/corridors inbetween large House parties where you can hear the music from several floors collide. While its an emulation, interpretation or replica of House Music, its still managing to evoke similar feelings even though some might find it difficult to dance to the music. In the past, Youngs has released several albums on a dozen labels such as VHF, Jagjaguwar, Table Of The Elements, Gipsy Sphinx, Majora, Chocolate Monk, Celebrate Psi Phenomena, Fusetron and his own No Fans outlet. He has collaborated with Neil Campbell (aka Astral Social Club), Matthew Bower, Simon Wickham-Smith and many others and was a member of the A-Band and has performed live and in the studio with Sunroof! And Skullflower. Additionally, Youngs played bass for Jandek, appearing on three of his live records/DVDs. Limited edition of 500 copies!" - Dekorder.

In his own words: "No Retreat in Comfort was made on a week-long recording bender when I found myself home alone. I remember the weather was dreadful, and I rarely ventured outside. I borrowed a Moog Source, and the album started off as an hour and a half of synth jams. I then fitted the songs to my favourite jams. Having done the recording, it lay dormant for over a year when I remixed it for the tour-only CD. Influences? I dont think it sounds anything like it, but I have a memory of having heard the bonus disc of the McCartney II re-release at about this time and rather enjoying it.

On this album, Primary Concrete Attack, he utilizes a borrowed spring reverb generator from his friend, Luke Fowler, to rise to the challenge Richo at FD set him of creating a dub record. While not liking reggae or dub himself, Richard Youngs professes a huge passion for tape echo and spring reverb, plus loves a hearty and perhaps provocative challenge. The eight tracks that make up Primary Concrete Attack, as perhaps expected, bear little in common with a dub record and fall far closer to the idiosyncratic worlds Richard Youngs generally appears to feel happiest in. Combining electronic splurge with all manner of loops and various sound sources, this album focuses very much on their effects and how to play around with them as much as the original sounds." - Fourth Dimension.

Title: River Through Howling Sky
Format: CD
Label: Jagjaguwar
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"If the musical real number line is infinitely dense, then the most recent work of Richard Youngs endeavors to fill in all of the holes on it. River Through Howling Sky is Youngs latest full-length. It returns to the more meditative and drone-y side of his songcraft (circa Sapphie (1998) and Making Paper (2001)), although this is no true devolution: all of his recordings to date have some measure of these qualities. So what is it that sets River Through Howling Sky apart from its predecessors? It is the density on the recording, both intra-spatial and otherworldly. The howling guitar that points unerringly to some imagined horizon line. Throughout, Youngs is the calm and steady wolf, chanting odes to infinity. Expose the ancient Brotherhood of Pythagoras to River Through Howling Sky , and you would find knowing nods, pursed lips, and secret incantations in caves. An unwitting acceptance that not everything is rational or conceptually circumnavigable. Our western tonal system relies on ratios, i.e. strings whacked at particular intervals. Youngs howling guitar and circular chants -- with the help of a spartan amount of percussion and electronics -- may just encompass all the possible ratios and, mystically, more." - Jagjaguwar.

Title: Rurtain
Format: LP
Label: Alter
Country: UK
Price: $21.00
"At this point in time Richard Youngs should need no introduction. Through his vast discography (spanning over 20 years), he has created a fascinating body of work which has found a home on labels such as Forced Exposure, VHF, Jagjaguar and his own No Fans imprint. Like all great artists, Richards work is hard to pin down and continues to evolve, mutate, and blossom into new forms, while at the same time bearing a unique characteristic that lets you know it could be by no-one else. Split into two parts, Rurtain is a new electronic piece which picks up from where the Core to the Brave LP on Root Strata left off, but taking a more abstract road into something more skeletal and strange. In the first part, broken beats cluster around minimal hits of percussion and wordless vocals that sound like theyre trapped in a vacuum, evoking a slightly unsettling atmosphere. Things become a little more celebratory in the second part with the addition of some very erratic organ playing, giving an ecstatic and almost "free-jazz" feel to the piece. The B-side features three very different interpretations of Richards originals by Neil Campbell (Astral Social Club), John Clyde-Evans and Daniel Lopatin (Oneohtrix Point Never). Neils version expands the organ of the second piece into a huge kaleidoscopic drone, while John hones in on the woodblock and percussion to make something more metallic and abrupt. Finally, Daniel Lopatin closes the LP grandly by adding violent stabs of digital synth and melancholic guitar-playing to Richards voice, almost creating a kind of futuristic ballad. Five tracks of unclassifiable electronics, limited to 300 copies. Recorded by Richard Youngs, Neil Campbell, John Clyde-Evans and Daniel Lopatin in Glasgow, Yorkshire and New York, 2011 - 2012. Mastered by John Hannon at No Recording Studio and cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering." - Alter.

Title: South Voyager
Format: LP
Label: Atonal Industries
Country: Spain
Price: $32.00
"Any journalist will happily jump on the opportunity of utilizing hyperbole. And truly, Richard Youngs is a genius. His work is seminal and unique. Not only because he has composed brilliant works throughout his extensive career—worthy of being devoured by hungry academic minds—but because his own history, written in minor case and without artifices, has routed the direction of contemporary experimental music in almost anonymous fashion. Perhaps he is not a household name, but, without his contributions, the British experimental music scene would be a wholly different beast. His influential shadow has cast across such luminaries as Ben Chasny (Six Organs of Admittance) and Kawabata Makoto(Acid Mothers Temple), just two of the musicians who have celebrated his inspired (and inspirational) talent.

Since kicking off his discography in the early nineties in his native Glasgow, Youngs has proven to be a prolific, hyperactive artist within a career that spans over 20 years, including three upcoming releases from September through December, 2013.

A multi-instrumentalist led solely by his own conviction, Richard Youngs has rewritten the history of folk (Sapphie, 2000), released a capella recordings (Summer Wanderer, 2004), flirted with pop music (Beyond the Valley of Ultrahits, 2010) and has written some of the more accurate lessons of experimental reverie (The Naïve Shaman, 2005). Perhaps his natural habitat lies in The South Voyager(Atonal Industries, 2013), consisting of three songs without titles that embody mantras, elevating the spirit and paving a path to a god; a god with the initials R.Y.

The career of Richard Youngs is triangulated by experimentation, improvisation—not only as an aesthetic concept, but also due to the limitation of resources—and a collaborative spirit who has previously worked with such renowned artists as Jandek, Luke Fowler (Turner Prize finalist) and up-and-coming auteurs like the multi-gifted Alex Neilson (Trembling Bells). Above all, Richard Youngs remains capable of defying the impossible. By his hand, the exceedingly difficult becomes surprisingly easy, and vice versa. His pop records are intricately multi-layered and forever fascinating. But even his experimental pieces have given way to catchy melodies that will forever remain engrained in your head. Richard Youngs is, without a doubt, here to stay." - Atonal Industries. Edition of 257.

Title: Summer Through My Mind
Format: LP
Label: Ba Da Bing
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"RICHARD YOUNGS presents his debut recording for Ba Da Bing Records, and the label is looking forward to a long relationship. For Summer Through My Mind, Youngs pushes himself into a challenging new sphere yet again. A renowned musician with over 40 albums to his name, he goes somewhere he never has before-to the heart of American music. Summer Through My Mind is a country music album, warped through Youngss ambidextral mind. A warning: its not like any country album one has heard before. There are familiar elements scattered about-slide-guitar, heartfelt vocals, dark lyricism-but these pieces exist like alienated rocks from a planetary explosion of long ago. The discomfited guitar lines create patchy connections, and Youngss unmistakable singing seals things right up. The album draws together a story Youngs wrote as a child, involving bad people and dark spirits ("Story of Jhon" which has a vocal contribution from SIMON JOYNER), with some lyrics written by his own six-year-old son. In a rare chance to see him perform outside of Europe, Youngs will be playing select US dates in 2013, including the Hopscotch Festival in Durham, NC, and at the ISSUE Project Room in New York." -Ba Da Bing.

Format: CD
Label: Glass Redux
Country: UK
Price: $16.00
"For the uninitiated Richard Youngs is a classically trained pianist and guitarist, but musically he grew up in the shadow cast by punk rock. Adopting guerrilla recording techniques, the independent DIY ethic is at his core. He is a solo artist who also works with a diverse range of artists. He has collaborated with Scottish filmmaker Luke Fowler, Arts Foundation of New Zealand Laureate Award winner Alastair Galbraith, Portuguese organist David Maranha, and Japanese guitarist Makoto Kawabata (Acid Mothers Temple) among others. Since 1985, he has performed irregularly with Neil Campbell (A Band, Astral Social Club, Vibracathedral Orchestra). He was the bassist for Jandeks inaugural live performance at Instal in 2005, and plays as a duo with Damon Krukowski (Galaxie 500, Magic Hour). He has performed floor spots at Hertfordshire folk clubs, and worked with members of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. He has recorded a modern pop album with Beyond The Valley Of Ultrahits in 2009, and composed a score titled Past Fragments Of Distant Confrontation for the BBC SSO in 2014. He was commissioned to write music for the art film The Poor Stockinger, the Luddite Cropper and the Deluded Followers of Joanna Southcott (2012), and his music has appeared in the 2013 feature film Drinking Buddies. He is the drum machinist of The Flexibles, singer of Amor, among many other things. Whether youre a long-time admirer of Youngs work, or discovering him for the first time, there is much to enjoy about The Rest Is Scenery - a perfect introduction to one of Britains great outsider artists." - Glass Redux.

Title: Varispeed Etudes
Format: LP
Label: Golden Lab
Country: UK
Price: $33.00
“140-gram LP in heavyweight UV-coated sleeve. Limited edition of 300. Varispeed Etudes was conceived by revered, quixotic, Glasgow-based avant-garde populist Richard Youngs very much as an analog "record of two halves" in the spirit of David Bowies Low (1977) and Heaven 17s Penthouse and Pavement (1981). Side A showcases Youngss bent for electronic experimentation and those inimitable, hauntingly reedy, standard English vocal tones that have placed him squarely alongside a peer group of the UKs vocalizing weirdos that includes Robert Wyatt, Ivor Cutler, and Charles Hayward. Side B strips away the vocals and replaces the electronics with a series of shorter, dissonant, slow-moving, acoustic clatterbang soundscapes. The whole thing is "held together by the joy of varispeed pitch control -- major delight of reel-to-reel recording" and its as rich, conceptually oblique, throwaway, but important as anything in Youngss catalog." - Golden Lab.

The LP begins with a cosmic folk interpretation of the traditional "Rolling In The Dew", with Richards voice transplanted amongst electronics, acoustic clatter and steady minimal percussion. From there the record ventures into more abstract territories where hovering electronics, searing guitar and explosive drumming all meld into a psychedelic haze. The album concludes with the side-long "Sent Onto The Stream", a twenty-two minute journey of skittering percussion and sustained tones of bent frequencies. Pressed in an edition of 420." - HP Cycle.

What was supposed to be a quick listen as I tidied up the shed turned into an hour or so of utter drooling epiphany. I was typing my yes! yes! YES! email before the end of the second song! The finest Richard Youngs record since Lake and Advent... which I suppose means EVER, saddled high on the horse with the glorious ear of master collaborator, Alex Neilson.

"Holed up in Glasgow, probably in a black-consumed tenement flat, Richard Youngs and Andrew Paine deliver a sacrament as they usher in the long dark night. This slow thirty-seven minute journey is a beautifully cold concern, the chilly sound of bells, spidery percussion and high tone drone giving this an emotionally barren air. Rumour has it that the vocal parts, the musical moans that drift in and out of the albums single track, were recorded blind - the music muted as the pair worked. The title is possibly a play on the word channel, the album sounding more like the séance channelling of a void rather than any underwater adventure between England and France. Although the more I think about that the surer I am that Im wrong. Like a single outstretched hand reaching out from the black of the void, Paine and Youngs cast a spell through the polycarbonate. 8/10" - Scott McKeating (20 August, 2008).

"Paine and Youngs dont fulfil the expectation of pastoral views of the title on this disc, instead creating an electronic aural of an MRI scan. All three tracks are ruled ring modulated lines, multiple signals wound in kiss-and-tell streams. The transmission theyve titled "Norfolk Sunset" has a distracted chill to it, mundane phrases and words chopped and reverbed as layering comes and goes. As electronic waves are bounced down through the track it becomes hard to follow any of these fleeting thoughts to end-of-sentence conclusion. As with much of their collaborative material theres a genteel feel to the music, even when it walks the more confusing paths. Like plugging a mic into the brain whilst manipulating sines with the other hand, the closing "Old Girton Fayre" is wet crawling early electronics. How they quite manage to summon up pre-dusk gentle rain through this tracks sounds is 8m 15s of unexpected genius. So that rustic-hinting title isnt too far from the mark after all. 8/10" - Scott McKeating (30 July, 2008 ).

Title: 20 Years
Format: LP + 3xCD
Label: VHF
Country: USA
Price: $34.00
"20 Years celebrates two decades of music from RICHARD YOUNGS and SIMON WICKHAM-SMITH, featuring four previously unreleased albums. The set includes the first new vinyl from the pair in almost 15 years, plus three other projects (presented here on CD) that were all completed and intended for release by the duo in the 90s, but fell by the wayside for various reasons. 20 Years, the newly recorded LP, is one of the heaviest, most uncompromising records of the duos long career. It consists of eight electro-acoustic reworkings of their first (unreleased) recording from 1987, and is a blistering set of tracks as wild and weird as anything theyve ever done. The SMIRR CD features four epic instrumentals in the vein of classics such as LAKE and Asthma and Diabetes, flowing with extended grandeur, mixing drone and eccentric instrumentation in the duos immediately identifiable style. Songphases ten simple, lovely tunes are a reminder of their considerable "trad" songwriting and performing prowess. While Youngs has worked in this style on his solo efforts, hearing Wickham-Smith match him track for track is a revelation. "Dream Song" is among the formers most moving pieces. Finally, LIVE!!! is a head-scratcher of an album, recorded live in-studio in full-on Dadaist style--extended clavinet mania, Casio jams and plenty of outre expression. This set is packaged in a gatefold jacket with essays by DAVID KEENAN, NEIL CAMPBELL, MARC MASTERS and JON DALE and an extended interview with Youngs and Wickham-Smith. The CDs are housed in a custom-bindered insert in the pocket opposite the LP, with each disc held snug in its own die-cut pocket, and the audiophile-quality LP was cut by JOHN GOLDEN." -VHF

Title: Electric Lotus
Format: LP + CD

"This epic double set combines an LP of all-electric rock mayhem with a CD of subtle drum/shakuhachi tracks. Electric Lotus is the YOUNGS and NEILSONs self-proclaimed "rock" album, and it is a mind-boggling clutch of guitar/bass/drums demolition. Coming off like an amphetamine-fueled Guru Guru, the music tumbles out in a crazy quilt of stun-level attack zonage, especially on the side-long "Electric Lotus." Neilsons staggering free-drumming hits a new peak here, stepping beyond his laudable work with Jandek, Bonnie Prince Billy, etc., into new realms. Youngs lights it up with raging guitar and bass action, including some deeply psychedelic leads and heavy riffing. Lotus Edition is a companion CD of restrained and completely live duos for drums and shakuhachi. A couple of the tracks feature the kind of long notes, bowed cymbals, and other droneage heard on previous releases like Partick Rain Dance, but in a stripped down live setting." - VHF

"Someday, the meeting that occurred between these two guitarists will be legendary. For now, its only available on the archaic 12" LP format. Matthew Bower has been carving great big swaths of sound into the collective unconscious of hundreds of young people for over a decade. His work with Skullflower, Total, Sunroof!, etc ranks as some of the most memorable and durable (not to mention enjoyable) of the "noise" era. Richard, on his own and with assorted collaborators, has been busy issuing creative and personal missives from a practically unknown and unexplored corner of the universe of sound. The music on this thing is two side long tracks for electric guitars. "Site" bakes the listener with radioactive waves of high pitched and droning feedback. After a few minutes, a zen like peace emerges from the noise, causing the listener to fall into a deep trance which induces thoughts of flowers and birds and peace and stuff. "Realm" works a slightly less dense tangent on the two guitars as atom-splitters formular, but still manages to throw off all sorts of sparks. As if all of that bragging about the music wasnt enough, the record comes housed in a beautiful fold-out jacket, lovingly hand screened and assembled by Charlestown MAs Kristin Anderson.

Like the music of Matthew Bowers Sunroof! group, the tracks are rainbows of colors and textures with string drone, percussion, bleeps, and the unidentifiable, competing in a mix devoid of the traditional lead with backing schema. Many tracks have the kind of welcoming electronic bed seldom heard since the demise of Harmonia, with ring-modulated fuzz bleeping away over a chugging, but non-oppressive beat." - VHF.

"Youth of the Beast is pure primitive electronics, suffocating saxophone scrawl and epic percussion. Acting as the solo output for Raccoo-oo-oons Andy Spore, this record is YOTBs first vinyl offering following up a few tapes on Night People and Fuck It Tapes. Blistering vocal screeches and mixer feedback blasts meld with stray tones as brass wails and drums are pounded. Spore is a master of channeling the spirits right into the basement where he crafts his jams, creating a captivating mass of noise and psychedelic signals crossing for a painfully beautiful 10 minutes. Breathless sax solos and massive tribal percussion interspersed throughout. The sum of all these parts is something intense, unknown; an ever evolving sonic creature as bleak as it is restless. In an edition of 315 records with EPIC xeroxed double sided/double foldover (youll understand it when you see it) sleeves and printed labels by Spore." - Arbor.

"Mittsu no Sekai" is constructed from orchestral composition and tape sound : music concrete. This midsection seems industrial music. Actually he was influenced upon Edgar Varese in his earliest years. On the work "Oen", all the metamorphosed sound made from concrete sounds are used and combined for a tragic story of a woman in Edo era, named En who was put in prison for forty years. This music concrete work aims not only depicting the situation, but also lighting up heroines dark passion, conscious and subliminal mind and psychological demension.

"...Miniatures Of Concrete Works. Edition Omega Point presents work by legendary Japanese composer Joji Yuasa -- one of most important composers in Japan after World War II. "Nadja, Twincling in Stars" (1963) is the incidental music, by NHK Radio, based on "Nadja" by Andre Breton who made "Declaration of Sur-Realisme." The actual chart of constellations was played by three players (violin, piano and vibraphone) which was used as the music score. Birdsong, electronics, and sound generated from inside the piano using music concrète techniques were constructed at the NHK Electronic Music Studio where Yuasas first so-called pure electronic piece "Projection Esemplastic For White Noise" was made in the same year of 1963. "Music For A Cenotaph For Industrial Victims" (1972) was set in the woods of Tama Hills, in the suburb of Tokyo. The music consists of echoing wooden bells in the woods, made from lowered marimba moderated by square wave, various metamorphosed sounds reminiscent of industrial work to accompany the offering flowers by the attendants, and again, more reverberant sounds of wooden bells. "Music For The Main Pavillion Of The Okinawa Oceanic Expo" (1975) is a musique concrète work which was made for the Oceanic Expo in Okinawa prefecture in 1975. Folk music with an indigenous stringed instrument (Jamisen), voices of various sea birds, the engine sound of a boat, and metamorphosed instrumental sounds reminiscent of the wind and waves combined with orchestral chamber music. Italian folk song "To The Sea" is arranged for chamber orchestra and recorded by the composer as an important sound source of this work. Limited edition of 500 copies only." - Omega Point.

"...In Textile Pavillion Of EXPO 70. At the EXPO 70 in Osaka, many avant-garde artists contributed architectural, space, environmental design and sound works. In the Textile Pavillion ("Sen-i Kan" in Japanese), Japanese composer Joji Yuasa and filmmaker Toshio Matsumoto presented a remarkable experimental event, "Space Projection Ako" for multi-channel tape music and image projection. Also included in the presentation at the Pavillion was background sound for several spaces and objects, composed by Joji Yuasa, mainly. This original master tape was provided by Yoshimasa Matsumoto, the sound operator at the Pavillion, who was also a sound engineer for 60s film and television which included "Ultra Q," "Ultraman" and others. For the first track, "Music For Pattern-Slide Monyoh," abstract textile images were projected on the walls of a corridor ("Monyoh" means graphical patterns). This concrete sound was composed specially for this space. "Music For Colourful World" (by unknown mixer) was played and recorded by three electric guitar players. "White World" involved the same interior space as "Colourful World," except it was painted white, in contrast to "Colourful World." Music for this room was made out of sound material from "Projection Esemplastic" and "Icon For White Noise," both important electronic works from Yuasas early years. "Voices Of Dolls" featured a group of tall, gentleman-like dolls set in a lobby space, accompanied by meaningless text in Japanese, English and Portuguese coming out of them. The Japanese version is a part of Yuasas concrete work, "Voices Coming." An English version (by Joseph Love) and a Portuguese version (by Joaquim M. Benoetez) were recorded for this project. For "Voice Of Raven Objects" (by unknown mixer) the artist Masunobu Yoshimura created ravens and arranged them here and there on the Pavillion. The accompanying sound was made from modulated Noh chant and lines from a story coming out of the mouths of the ravens. "Background Sound Of Central Dome" was taken from events such as "Space Projection Ako" that took place in the dome space of the Pavillion. This background sound was prepared from marimba modulated by a square wave. Premiere recordings on disc, housed in a cardboard paper gatefold sleeve in an original design. Includes newly-written liner notes in Japanese & English. Limited edition of 500 copies." - Edition Omega Point.

Price: $27.00
"2010 repress. Volume one of Omega Points Obscure Tape Music of Japan series, featuring Joji Yuasas "Aoi-no-Ue" (1961) and "My Blue Sky" (1975). Joji Yuasa (b. 1929) is one of most important composers in Japan after World War II. "Aoi-no-Ue" was composed for experimental theater at Sogetsu Art Center. The sound of this work is made from the chants of Japanese traditional "Noh" theater. "The text is recomposed by me keeping the original words. And it was sung in the style of Noh-chant by three brothers ... This work is composed mainly based on the metamorphosed sound of Noh-chant. The other sound is concrete sound such as bird songs, water drops, glasses, the warped sound of a vibraphone, some generated electronic sound and others. These sound sources are diversely changed, metamorphosed through all the possible electronic techniques at that time, and finally mixed and reconstructed on stereophonic tape. This piece had taken almost half a year to complete, working with the excellent sound engineer Zyunosuke Okuyama at the Sogetsu Art Center." --Joji Yuasa. This package also includes his final electronic music piece "My Blue Sky No.1," made at NHK electronic music studio. This studio was the 60s and 70s mecca of Japanese electronic music. Yuasa explains: "In this work only clicks, pulses and the various kinds of beats induced from them -- varying pitches, width and their frequency of pulse -- are adopted. For example, I controlled successively occurring pulses of low frequency sine wave by means of triggering with the frequency of the square wave." Limited edition of 500 copies for this second edition. Housed in a cardboard paper gatefold sleeve in the original design. Newly-written liner notes in Japanese and English by the artist himself. New and quite different cover art for this second edition by Ryuhei Yuasa." - Omega Point.

"Calling the three members of Yuganaut ⿿multi-instrumentalists⿝ is a little too easy. What is needed is some kind of word that would connote being multiple bands. Between them they could be a small brass group, an electric chamber ensemble or a straight-ahead jazz trio. But such formal confines may not leave room for the moments of playfulness or the passages of spacey psychedelia that sneak in between their evocative and highly original sounds. Between them, band members Stephen Rush, Tom Abbs and Geoff Mann play Fender Rhodes and Moog synthesizer; trumpet, trombone and tuba; bass, cello and violin; and drums, toys and didgeridoo. Does that sound streamlined? Their previous release also included mandolin, euphonium and vibes. More important than the listing of implements is the fact that the three gentlemen of Yuganaut are more than conscientious about leaving room in the music, not just for each other but to let the music grow. Between them they can boast of Reggie Workmans tutelage, performance with the Warsaw National Symphony and membership in the Fela-inspired Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra. Which is to say there is tradition, formalism, groove and a sense of fun at play. They are at core, perhaps, a jazz band; but being a jazz band means (or should mean) that anything is possible. Theres ritual, theres storytelling, theyre contemplative, extrapolative, expressive, even impressive. Yuganaut is not here to be pigeon-holed. Theyre just here to play for you. Yuganauts first album, This Musicianship (ESP 4044), was released on ESP-Disk in 2008. Personnel: Stephen Rush (rhodes, moog, trombone, toys) Tom Abbs (bass, cello, violin, tuba, didj) Geoff Mann (drums, percussion, trumpet)" - Engine. Limited to 100 copies, in silkscreened jackets.

"2010 release. A Heart Full Of Sorrow is a disillusioned album for broken hearts. This is the work of Benjamin Daures, heir against his will of a tradition of loner in the vein of Ian Curtis, through Morrissey, to Kurt Cobain. Made in his suburban bedroom while smoking joints, A Heart Full Of Sorrow is a first album, dreaming of other places (Death Valley or the dry plain of Texas) as a way to escape local boredom and the gloominess of Paris outskirts. These are drafts of ballads, thrown on a 8-track like break-up letters to teenage years. Benjamin plays all the instruments: a skullish drum machine, a shy guitar, and unconfident vocals. When you listen attentively, you will understand that the fragileness is the force here. This is about sincerity, nakedness, and about not hiding behind the primitive energy of garage rock -- to put back songwriting into angrily-played songs." - Born Bad.

Title: Serpents Music
Format: LP
Label: Pan
Country: UK
Price: $27.00
2017 repress. "The enigmatic Tennessee-raised, Turin-based Yves Tumor presents Serpent Music, a poignant album recorded between Miami, Leipzig, Los Angeles and Berlin over three years. Evolved from a diverse and prolific creative history under an expansive plethora of covert aliases via various forward-thinking labels, Yves Tumor emerges as his most personal and matured incarnation to date. With involvement across various artistic outlets expanding to fashion such as a visceral live performance for LAs Hood By Air earlier this year, the global artist has built a distinctly bold personal aesthetic both musically and visually as a performer. Painstakingly written from pieces developed upon since 2013, Serpent Music was initially composed as a soul record - based around delicate and emotive songwriting in various forms. It was a highly difficult project to undertake on both a creative and personal level, weaving thematic links through paranoia, social anxiety, and missing loved ones. "The songs come from a much more emotional and very vulnerable place... Theyre very close to me and Ive been cautious of how I would eventually present them to the world." he explains. The album spans sonically diverse and richly-textured pieces, formed from live, organic instruments, samples and various field recordings. Dreamlike lo-fi psychedelia sits alongside broken electronic experimentations, ambient compositions between abrasive noise, offering insight into a haunting otherworld. From melodic choral vocals and soaring synths, to screeching guitar riffs, dramatic spoken word samples and live drumming, Serpent Music evidently moves through a strange and intriguing personal journey. "Broke In" features Oxhy. The album is mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at D&M. Features photography by Daniel Sannwald." - Pan.

Druggy, hushed vocals float over vintage rhythm machines, synth noise goop, and lost world music radio tones. Minimal, isolated, deranged, and savage, Yves/Son/Ace is junk pop music for a disconnected world full of detritus and longing.

Title: Fangs Of Lucifer
Format: LP
Label: Old Gold
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
A surprising and well deserved reissue of 1981-86 era tracks by Naofumi Ishimarus project of 20 + years. Imagine a cross between prime Half Jap (Jad Fair even supplied the cover art to some of his tapes from the early 80s) with the some of the more electronic LAFMS projects and youll get the gist. Beautifully packaged as well. "Naofumi Iziwaru was another one of the first to respond to Old Golds formative request for musical submissions. With dozens of releases under the name Yximalloo dating back to the 1970s, Nao had put a transdimensional dent in the cassette underground and his collaborations with Jad Fair raised more than a few wooly eyebrows. He sent us numerous tapes and they put us on the floor in a puddle of our own souls crying out for more, rethinking our own music making, and asking to please - please! - let us re-release his music. This resulted in five tapes of our own hand-picked smorgasbord, resequenced at his request. When he began making CDs, we tackled the daunting challenge of compiling about 40 minutes worth of his best music from digital and analog to marry on clear vinyl. It took several years, a lot of late nights, and handfuls of reverse/fast forward, but in the end, we were happy, Nao was happy, and now you can be happy, too dammit. Electronic clank, off kilter funk, galactic babble, pre-historic riddims, utterly melodic snatches of techno wizardry are here set forth. Most were sold in Europe; grab what few are left from Fusetron. Comes in clear bag with clear inserts with track listing, musician credits (no small feat that!), and instructions for a performance piece called Fangs of Lucifer which we dare you to try, but not unsupervised." - Old Gold.
