Title: Peri
Format: LP + CD
Label: 3Lobed
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"In early 2008, Bardo Pond and Three Lobed Recordings teamed up to assemble Batholith, a collection of tracks that were close to the bands heart but for various reasons had never been released. The result was an extremely cohesive and vital statement that was positively received by both old and new Bardo Pond fans. During the compilation of Batholith, the band had to agonize over the wealth of material that they were sitting on in constructing the ultimate tracklisting -- there were too many good songs. The band approached this problem by structuring two sister albums, Batholith and Peri, each possessing their own musical themes and each fully capable of standing independent from the other. For this reason, Peri is every bit as potent as its predecessor. The meticulous sequencing of Peris five tracks provides a classic Bardo Pond experience. While the initial description of the material might lead one to think that these tracks are outtakes or cutting-room floor type material, neither conclusion could be further from the truth. The band is quite excited to finally see all of the material on Peri venture into the public. For example, Chicken Gun will be recognizable to the bands longtime fans. A former live staple from 1996 through 1998 (even making an appearance in the bands set at the first Terrastock festival), it is a propulsive and fiery rocker every bit as monumental as some of the bands classics such as lb. and Tommy Gun Angel. The Path is a subtle number featuring floating flute work from Isobel Sollenberger. The album-closing Silver Pavilion is the sort of meditative psychedelia that has been Bardo Ponds calling card over their lengthy career. The track dates to the bands extremely fertile, yet barely documented, period between the release of Dilate and On the Ellipse. ;Silver Pavilions slow, enveloping build properly see the listener to the door and is reminiscent of such flawless Bardo closing tracks as RM, Aldrin and Night Of Frogs. Peri is pressed on 180g RTI vinyl and is housed within heavy old-style one-pocket Stoughton gatefold jackets bearing new collage work from Michael Gibbons." -3Lobed

Artist: CHEW, HANS
Title: New Cypress Grove Boogie
Format: 7"
Label: 3Lobed
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"Hans Chews skill as a piano player has previously been on display both in a complementary fashion to Jack Rose (appearing as a member of Jacks live backing band at Arthurdesh as well as on both The Black Dirt Sessions and Luck in the Valley) and as a integral member of D. Charles Speer & the Helix (including his vocal turns on both Life Insurance off Distillation and Bar-Abbas Blues off the In Madagascar 7"). This new single offers an expanded glimpse at not only Chews songwriting prowess but also his powerful boogie-blues, bar-rockin piano skills. Both tracks presented on this 7" are slated to appear on Chews debut album, Tennessee and Other Stories, but appear in different versions exclusive to this release. The 7" itself is a vivid picture disc bearing stunning shots by Jake Cunningham and comes from a limited edition of 500 copies. This record is a joint release between Three Lobed and Divide By Zero." - 3 Lobed.

Artist: D. CHARLES SPEER & THE HELIX
Title: Distillation
Format: LP + CD
Label: 3Lobed
Country: USA
Price: $24.00
"It is a tremendous understatement to say that it is with grand excitement that Three Lobed Recordings is proud to announce the release of Distillation by D. Charles Speer & the Helix. For the last couple of years we have been continually excited by each of the fruits that have resulted from Speer/Helix collaboration. For our money, 2008s After Hours album was one of the best released by anyone. Distillation only ups the ante from that prior full length by elaborating upon some of the musical themes from the late 2008 In Madagascar 7". The resulting album presents a tightly focused modern honky tonk quintet more than happy to blur the lines between country, psychedelia and the overall American musical tradition. Consisting on this album of D. Charles Speer (aka Dave Shuford from the No Neck Blues Band and Enos Slaughter), Hans Chew (last seen providing some ripping piano accompaniment on Fishtown Flower from Jack Roses The Black Dirt Sessions), Marc Orleans (Enos Slaughter, Sunburned Hand of The Man), Jason Meagher (No Neck Blues Band, Coachfingers) and Rob Gregory (the Suntanama), the Helix are a seriously experienced and talented crew. Distillation was recorded over time between the winter and summer of 2008 at the bands home away from home, Meaghers Black Dirt Studios in Westtown, New York. Includes a limited edition glass-mastered CD titled Of Snow Smoked Moose presenting a full, killer live set from the full band recorded on April 25, 2008 at the Turf Club in St. Paul, MN. This CD is not available separately." - 3Lobed. Gatefold sleeve.

Artist: GHQ
Title: Crystal Healing
Format: LP
Label: 3Lobed
Country: USA
Price: $28.00
"We will go ahead and say it now-we are lucky enough to be able to release GHQs strongest collection of studio material to date. Crystal Healing is a massive collection of the bands unique and mesmerizing brand of acoustic drone goodness. Get ready to have your socks knocked off. This record has been wonderfully mastered and pressed onto some super-sweet sounding RTI 180g vinyl. The record will be housed within hand-numbered heavy stock "old style" one-pocket gatefold sleeves and come from a limited edition of 855 copies. The jacket itself features some stunning new artwork by MICHAEL PARE. This one is really stunning to behold-it is one of those records."-Three Lobed Recordings. Features Marcia Bassett of Double Leopards/Hototogisu, Pete Nolan of Magic Markers and Steve Gunn.

Artist: GOLDEN GUNN
Title: S/T
Format: LP
Label: 3Lobed
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"Originally engaged as a fanciful and casual collaboration between Hiss Golden Messenger and Steve Gunn, under the newfound artistic direction of Mr. Silk, Golden Gunn instead gradually developed into something more singular, evocative, and visionary. Trading loose concepts and recordings back and forth across state and Mason-Dixon lines, Taylor, Hirsch, and Gunn conjured these tunes in response to the rhythm tracks Dickie programmed on his antique drum machine. When they could reach him, Dickie weighed in with elliptical comments and encouragement but his flip phone was always breaking, and by the time they were ready for mixdown, he was reportedly in Malaysia. Formally speaking, the largely instrumental album includes some new selections and confections from each of the players which were then transformed through the amber BluBlockers of Dickie Silk and honed into an altogether stranger collaborative session vibe, copping feels from Silk favorites like J.J. Cale, Waylon Jennings, Boz Scaggs, and the Average White Band." -3Lobed.

Artist: GUNN, STEVE
Title: Boerum Palace
Format: LP
Label: 3Lobed
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Purple/ white swirl vinyl. Steve Gunns prodigious talent for fusing traditional American song structures with a raga influence is almost criminally unheralded. Gunns songcraft is so strong and his playing style so effortlessly beautiful that folks should be shouting his name from every tall building and mountaintop. It is with such high esteem for the mans work that Three Lobed Recordings is humbled by the association and thrilled to announce the release of Boerum Palace by Steve Gunn. Without any doubt, Boerum Palace is a staggering accomplishment and is certainly Gunns most assured and confident work to date." -3Lobed.

Artist: GUNN-TRUSCINSKI DUO
Title: Ocean Parkway
Format: LP
Label: 3Lobed
Country: USA
Price: $21.00
"Ocean Parkway covers a great deal of sonic territory. For all of the slow, furious build of both the albums opening and closing tracks, there are also tracks featuring a substantial bit of playful and hypnotically mesmerizing phrasing (Banh Mi Ringtones), acoustic twelve string-centric strolls (Dont Lean On Door) and the full-on rollicking rockers (County Fair Getaway). Both players are on the absolutely top of the game throughout the totality of every track. For each shimmering moment of guitar genius from Gunn, Truscinski -- the perfect percussive foil -- fills the exact and right space around him. It is breathtaking to listen to these near-telepathic instances unfold. While these flashes were around every turn on Sand City and contained reminiscences of the most potent moments of both Fantasias-era Sandy Bull and the more guitar-centric Sun City Girls albums, they move to yet another level on Ocean Parkway. This album demonstrates that they have fully moved into their own sphere with their own completely signature sound. This is unmistakably a Gunn-Truscinski Duo album." -3Lobed.

Artist: GUNN-TRUSCINSKI DUO
Title: Sand City
Format: LP
Label: 3Lobed
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"Three Lobed Recordings is extremely excited to be releasing Sand City, a blistering new collection of original compositions from Steve Gunn and John Truscinski, otherwise known as the Gunn-Truscinski Duo. Steve Gunn is one of the most exciting American guitarists working today. His solo discography, as well as his work with GHQ, should be well known to folks who have followed Three Lobed Recordings over the past several years. Percussionist John Truscinski is a stalwart of the American underground in his own right through his dedicated work in X.O.4 (with Bill Nace and Jake Meginsky), Slaughterhouse Percussion, as well as with GHQ (as last seen on the outfits Everywhere At Once from the Oscillation III series). Sand City is an extremely mature and thoughtfully-crafted album that conjures some of the most potent moments of both Fantasias-era Sandy Bull and the more guitar-centric Sun City Girls albums while firmly charting its own raga-based territory. It is an exceptionally strong collection that should leave listeners rapt for years to come. Hand-numbered edition of 624." -3Lobes

Artist: HEAVY WINGED
Title: Fields Within Fields
Format: LP/CD
Label: 3Lobed
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"Theyre back. Heavy Winged has continued to stretch their leathery, scarred, er, wings and grow since their last release for Three Lobed Recordings, 2008s Alive In My Mouth. The band was determined to make Fields Within Fields into a significant part of their discography from the very outset. In October 2009, the band decided to enter the 5D Studios in Brooklyn to engage in what would be a first-time experiment - recording in a multi-track studio with overdubs planned from the sessions start. Prior to this experience the bands entire catalog was centered on displaying their ferocious live spirit. Having already proven themselves to be adept at creating grand and heavy statements in an improvised, one-take-only setting, they felt that were ready for the challenge of being both improvisational and composition-minded. The band hunkered down for the session and even brought in some friends to help augment the Heavy Winged vibe. Their time in 5D yielded the two dark fruits which combine to form Fields Within Fields. Brutal and hard, Among The Maori leads the album off and encompasses the entire first side of vinyl. The track opens with a slow, deliberate fade into Jed Bindemans (Eternal Tapestry, Jackie-O Motherfucker) tribal drumbeat. This beat may start controlled but the tracks velocity and volume continue to accelerate, eventually turning Among The Maori into a highly tuned jet engine. Ryan Heberts guitar playing is exceptional throughout, beginning with an initial prolonged banshee-like wailing and slowly building and fully giving way to a fantastically cranking and grinding post-metallic din by the tracks conclusion. Among The Maori stands out among the bands entire catalog as perhaps their truest moment. The albums second side is fully dedicated to the drone doom opus The Hum Of The Universe." Includes insert and bonus CD entitled Infinite In Every Direction." -3Lobed

Artist: MV & EE
Title: Fuzzweed
Format: LP + CD
Label: 3Lobed
Country: USA
Price: $24.00
"With each successive release, MV & EE strive to map new territory and to travel more distant orbits. It makes sense that this mission is their furthest reaching yet. While theyve long been comfortable navigating the same planes as such cosmic explorers as Sun Ra and Alan Silva, Fuzzweed sees them planting their freak flag in the sorts of different galaxies where the atmospheres counterpoint the music of the spheres with the more earthbound plaints of the blues. Please remember that The Golden Record that NASA sent up with Voyager back in more optimistic times included Dark Was The Night. That concept -- listening to Blind Willie Johnson in space -- strikes me as an apt analogy for what this Fuzzweed accomplishes on every spin. Includes bonus live CD (Live at Zebulon Residency January 2011)." -Pete Coward.

Artist: RHYTON
Title: The Emerald Tablet
Format: LP
Label: 3Lobed
Country: USA
Price: $21.00
"Rhyton is an experimental/improv/psych trio based in Brooklyn that features Dave Shuford (D. Charles Speer and the Helix, No Neck Blues Band), Jimy SeiTang (Psychic Ills) and Spencer Herbst (Messages, Matta Llama). Rhyton pours out a sonic libation unto the liberated world. Waveforms ring out, alternately frozen and blazing, wrenched from an improvisational method. They seek to loosen the gaze so as to widen focus, taking the unity in hand, not grabbing for the micro-constituent. Using the dynamic levels of rock, Rhyton carve out an edifice of sound on their debut LP that centers upon repetition and modal excursion." - 3Lobed.

Artist: ROSE, JACK
Title: The Black Dirt Sessions
Format: LP
Label: 3Lobed
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"Lets get the dirty work over with first. The Black Dirt Sessions is, all hyperbole aside, Jack Roses most complete and telling work to date. Those who have been following this Philadelphia wanderers development and growth as a solo artist (both live and on record) know that such a statement is strong praise, as Roses catalog is certainly not devoid of unqualified classics. The album takes its title from the studio where it was recorded -- Jason Meaghers Black Dirt Studios located in Westtown, New York. Old friends Rose and Meagher developed a good working relationship and full understanding of each others work habits and styles over the course of a spring 2008 joint tour between Rose and one of Meaghers bands, D. Charles Speer & The Helix. Rose, that eternal road warrior, booked some time at Black Dirt between tours in August, September and October of 2008 to lay down some new and fully realized material. This album is the complete result of those sessions. Roses prior albums have tended to both pick and remain true to a musical theme. The Black Dirt Sessions excels by displaying fully-honed examples of all of Roses various styles and themes -- traditional, raga and ragtime. Central to the albums spirit is the absolutely epic Cross the North Fork. This thirteen-minute revisiting of a track first laid down on the great Kensington Blues is a winding, thoroughly engrossing journey. This new version is the product of Roses perfectionist streak, which constantly pushes him to re-explore and re-visit his prior works. As presented on The Black Dirt Sessions, the new track is full of rich nuances from Roses years of additional scrutiny of the original composition. Much like Rose himself, Cross The North Fork is certainly comfortable in its skin and helps make it a welcome neighbor to the albums other splendid joys ranging from the jaunty and infectious Fishtown Flower (featuring a guest appearance from D. Charles Speer & The Helixs Hans Chew on ragtime piano) to the pensive and appropriate melancholy punch of Box Of Pine. The albums artwork is somewhat of the yin to the yang of Roses 2008 release on Three Lobed Recordings, I Do Play Rock And Roll. Bearing the same overall design aesthetic as that prior release, albeit presented in a contrasting white with black print, The Black Dirt Sessions features a photo of Rose performing in New York in 2006. The LP is pressed on 180g RTI vinyl and housed within an old style high gloss Stoughton cover. The record is from a one-time pressing of approximately 2,000 copies." -3Lobed

Artist: WOODEN WAND & THE VANISHING VOICE
Title: Lun Marquer Contre la Moissonneuse
Format: CD
Label: 3Lobed
Country: USA
Price: $13.50
"Over the course of their recording career, Wooden Wand And The Vanishing Voice have proven to be a multi-faceted and difficult to define. They have successfully allowed the body of their work to be cryptic, proto-spiritual, emotionally bare, brashly exuberant and, throughout it all, completely entrancing. Their discography, which contains numerous cassettes, CDRs and a little bit of vinyl -- all of which display their twisted and droning take on psychedelic folk -- has been constantly evolving and has seen each of their superb releases build upon the strengths of its immediate predecessor. Lun Marquer Contre la Moissonneuse is an exploration of the goodness inherent in the human heart and how that decency can help transform the world into a better place. Sound grandiose? Well, revolutions do begin with ambition. Long-held beliefs state that every morning that one rises from bed they have cheated Death once more through the grace of God. Through the extension of this theme, every good deed a person performs during those waking hours may very likely stand as a mark against the Reaper on the great cosmic score sheet. Wooden Wand And The Vanishing Voice have collected these four tracks recorded in various locations over the fall of 2004 to act as a sonic testament to this principal." - 3Lobed.
