Artist: CLYDE-EVANS, JOHN
Title: Delight In The Stream
Format: LP
Label: Amen Absen
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Delight in the Stream is the first solo vinyl outing for John Clyde-Evans (aka Tirath Singh Nirmala) in close to a decade. Recorded during a year-long stay in India, the album seamlessly weaves together an array of piercing bowed objects, flutes and voice with electronic and audio embellishments over the course of three extended tracks. The scattering of sounds swirl around to disorienting effect yet still manage to mesmerize as the music draws itself out. Pressed in a limited edition of 300 copies." - Amen Absen

Artist: HOBO SONN
Title: Wary The Mind
Format: LP
Label: Amen Absen
Country: Canada
Price: $18.00
"Wary the Mind is the long awaited second LP by Hobo Sonn following the self-released debut - The Thundering Nature of Reality. Constructed using electronics, effects, piano, sampler, mixer, field recordings, etc., this album presents an audible voyage that meticulously weaves together seemingly random reference points into a cohesive yet perplexing whole.  Side one begins with processed feedback shifting amongst tape hiss/static and muted drones where intermittent signals of disintegrated sound seep in like a new breath and then recede leaving near silence. This sparseness provides the opportunity to contemplate the space between each frequency and brings to focus the sequence of the sounds as they have been assembled.  A hypnotic and glistening piece for piano introduces the second side which evolves into an electronic buzz accented by a raga-esque feedback swirl coaxed from the unexpected sound-source. The well placed field recordings, with the chimes, clatter and chattering, bring things to a gently decaying conclusion.  The album is pressed in an edition of 330 copies." - Amen Absen.

Artist: VON BINGEN
Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Amen Absen
Country: Canada
Price: $19.00
"Von Bingen began life when husband and wife duo Jenni Pace and Daniel Presnell (Astral Blessing) temporarily suspended Hildegard (their east coast group of clangorous misfits), and relocated to Vancouver, BC where they soon met Josh Stevenson (aka Magneticring, and one-time JOMF member), and Richard Smith. Influenced by histories of conceptual art practices and electronic and outsider music native to the west coast, Von Bingens sound is at once reminiscent of distant sonics, such as those found in the labs of 60s SF pioneers, or overheard in Berlins Zodiac Club in the early 70s, while also anticipating the drone of future decades. Folk forms gleefully mutate, reborn as new hybrids, dignified by analog modular and semi-modular synthesizer systems from Serge, Buchla, and EMS. Instruments such as the flute, clarinet, guitar, and the drum are defamiliarized through quixotic treatments, originating from experimentations in the bands studio. By rescuing tones, processes and technology from dusty desuetude, Von Bingen happens upon a unique retrofit for advanced audiences that is sure to confound, if not altogether please. Within the grooves of this lp, you will not find full-fledged allegiance to current fashions, nor will you find some light loop of cheap sensations, hollow-core historical reenactments, or facsimile sentiments. In fact, we are not sure what you will find at all, and that is the beauty of nature, a potentially infinite system of chances, where the opportunity to un-learn is as important as the opportunity to learn; where memories possess the power to eclipse experience; where all history becomes synesthesia. Join Von Bingen in this new Eden, and by all means, have an apple." - F.O.L. Ministries, 2009.
