Artist: AXOLOTL/INCA ORE
Title: Split
Format: 7"
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $6.00
"Karl Bauer and Eva Saelens (Axolotl and Inca Ore respectively) are two like minded Bay area psychers operating on two opposing levels. Axolotl marks the A side with skyward streaking drones and ethereal loops tinged and focused, ringing with the joyous bliss of upward passage. An endless array of vocals, electronics, and violin looping and looping, building and growing: stasis. Inca Ore makes her craft from an Earth bound level. Oneness with her surroundings, roots firmly planted. Eerie incantations and meandering harp play foreground to layer upon layer of looped vocals and murky ambience, charting your way towards forever. In an edition of 450 white purity colored 7"s in black and white pro-printed collage fold-over sleeves by Eva with a numbered insert." - Arbor.

Artist: BARK HAZE
Title: Macannabis
Format: Cass
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Somewhere, the gods of psych are smiling. Gazing down on this Northeastern all-star unit, just feeling the music. Bark Haze is comprised of Andrew Macgregor (aka Gown), Thurston Moore (of Sonic Youth), and on this recording Pete Nolan (of Magik Markers). Gown and Moores dual guitars and in constant conversation. There must be a psychic barrier between these dudes minds, nothing sounds forced, only ever flowing. Nolan keeps the time with militant precision acting as the foil for guitar development. A thirty-minute track recorded around the same time as All Tomorrows Parties last winter stretched across two sides of the tape. Infinite psyched out oblivion like a more sober Lambsbread. In a numbered edition of 200 copies with double sided red eyed tree art and tape labels by Maya Miller of Heavy Tapes/Religious Knives." - Arbor.

Artist: BIRDS OF DELAY
Title: Live From Mind Avalanche
Format: Cass
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $6.50
"Beneath the mounds of tape loops and vocal séance rests the human forms of Luke Younger and Steven Warwick aka Birds Of Delay. "Live From Mind Avalanche" is a particularly deep work. It sounds as though it was recorded live on the wing of a flying plane or at the top of some epicly huge mountain in India. Frozen delays and deprived electronics ache for freedom from desolate captivity. Drowned static screeching into an abyss of grey tumbles down the side of a snow slicked slope. Icy smoke envelops whatever remains. In a numbered edition of 90 sprayed/stamped tapes with art by the band." - Arbor

Artist: CLOAKED LIGHT/PALE BLUE SKY
Title: Clear Of/Someday, Sometime
Format: LP
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"Working together, but differently. Clear Of, shows Cloaked Light working within a new mode; an expanded temporal sensitivity through field recording and discrete static chords. Slow movement- revealing growth and decay at the subtlest thresholds; disappearing music with a heavy presence, a shifting sense of space, not in the room, but of the room. Pale Blue Skys Someday, Sometime approaches a similar expansion of perception and unobscuring blur. Through tape manipulation, the inner workings of tonal relationships are placed under focus; extending time to reveal new moments; widening the view. Distorting to understand; a reorienting pause. Originally conceived to coincide with the Cloaked Light/Pale Blue Sky California tour with Pedestrian Deposit, Infinite Body, Earn, and Mirror to Mirror in January 2010; a testament to a common point and its different trajectories. Approaching the possibility. Mastered by Pete Swanson; cut at 45 rpm. In an edition of 400 copies with glossy jackets and inner sleeves." -Arbor

Artist: CONCERN
Title: Cæsarean
Format: LP
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"As Concern, Gordon Ashworth has explored drone music through an inspection of the textural components of acoustic instruments and recording processes.  On Cæsarean the palette presented is a singularly precise one.  Using simple sources (piano, clarinet, banjo, shrutti box, and acoustic guitar), tape processing (1/4” and cassette), and reverberation, Ashworth crafts delicate tape music through transforming repetitions and obscured fidelity. The emotional and physical presence of Cæsarean is overwhelming; sounding simultaneously natural and alien.   The instrumentation and field recordings are both stripped of their defining characteristics; creating a balance between the harmonic characters of both, a pure transformation empty of excess and desire.  Time held in suspension.  Released on compact disc by Slow Flow (Japan).  In an edition of 500 copies with black and white reverse board jackets and printed labels. " - Arbor

Artist: COPPER GLOVE
Title: Surviving The Garden Of Hate
Format: 7"
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"Copper Glove, the new project from Baltimores Door (formerly Earth Crown; who shared splits with Secret Abuse and Kites on past Arbor releases), shows a further progression of his one man industrial-noise synth unit. In opposition to his former work, Copper Glove is more mindful of composition; utilizing tone generators and processed synthesis and vocals, to present a dense cut up analog form of industrial concréte. Doors nihilistic optimism carries itself with a sense of effortlessness; ideological aggression, a pure translation. With focused energy, the noise of the machine continues as man controls it. The city is destroyed but we can still live here, forever. In an edition of 300 7"s with silkscreened covers and printed labels by Door." -Arbor

Artist: DEAD MACHINES
Title: Plays Invasion Of The Body Snatchers
Format: One-sided LP
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"Michigan heavy domestic-electronic couple Dead Machines always create records that confuse and intrigue. They are the forefathers of broken gear / appliance / wind instrument basement jamming and have their niche dug deep. "Invasion" exists on the borders of existence- room ambiance is present, but the sounds are totally alien. Twisting mixer feedback and found sound source into a twisted collage of life outside the "Pod": harsh and awakening, but at times giving way to the trance of the machine lull. Dont fall asleep. In an edition of 450 LPs with full color pro-printed cardboard sleeves with art by John Olson." -Arbor

Artist: EMERALDS / QUINTANA ROO
Title: Bubble Quiet Complication/ Beheaded Dynasty
Format: LP
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Blessed waves of beautiful sounds build and decay into perfect pieces of music.  From opposing locations and opposing approaches to drone, Ohios Emeralds and LAs Quintana Roo juxtapose themselves with skillful perfection.  Emeralds epic synth composition "Bubble Quiet Complication" marks the acts first vinyl appearance, and  possibly heaviest work to date.  A tribute to the sine waves of 70s, this massive grower oscillates and progresses completely discretely; impossible to follow and completely transcendental.  Bass heavy subsonic patterns work their way underneath the beauty, completely proving and reinforcing this bands recent acclaim.  Quintana Roo (comprised of members of Robedoor, Pocahaunted, and Changeling et al.)  take a more natural/native approach to their craft.  A massive horn blasts marks a call to arms on "Beheaded Dynasty".  Twinkling chimes and electric textures help paint a natural base.  Hand drums start the onward march to oblivion, met along the way by a blessed to infinity bass line building to an organic overload.  In a numbered edition of 450 emerald green LPs with printed labels and proprinted cardboard jackets with an insert all from the psyched psyche of Devon Varmega."- Arbor

Price: $6.50

Artist: EYE SHAKING KINGDOM
Title: Heavy Glass
Format: Cass
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $7.50
"Eye Shaking Kingdom is the severely fried, technicolor overdrive duo comprised of Glasgows Nackt Insecten and Alistair Crosbie. Their sole past release, "With Metal and Swordlight" placed their feedback driven drones in a league of their own, though they have still managed to remain below the crossfuzzed radar. These two tracks can be taken as totally overdriven crushing walls of loops, feedback and keys; but intense listening shows luscious keyboards painting the soundscape with all the colors of the lunar rainbow. Totally dynamic flows and heavy clarity streak across the foggy night sky. In an edition of 80 tapes with art, tape labels, and a poster by JKtapes Peter Friel."- Arbor

Artist: FERRARO, JAMES
Title: Citrac
Format: Double LP
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $26.00
"The Citrac collection presents one of James Ferraros most cinematic visions; showing his recent mode of soundworld creation in top form. By shying away from pure musical creation and opting towards the organic birth of sonic universes, James finds a new way to tell a story. Evoking vastly imaginative imagery, this 80+ minute suite spanning two LPs, contains the previously released Postremo Techno Mundus Symposium, excerpts and alternative edits from Liquid Metals Alternative Soundtrack to Digital Overdrive, and the all new Digital Tribe. Presenting deep-nightmarish atmospheres of surveillance and captivity on through the rush of the open road; the hypnotic, lo-fi result is one that could only come from Ferraros alien mind, eternally stuck in a 1980s vision of an impossibly archaic future. In an edition of 400 double LPs with full color printed inner-sleeves in pro-printed black and white cardboard sleeves and printed labels by James." - Arbor

Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $6.50
"I was first introduced to these New Zealand shredders through the 267 Finland dudes. NZs finest rock the boat, baby, with some of the dirtiest surf rock from either side of the equator. This tape compiles live tracks and other odds and ends from barnacle encrusted clubs. Rock and Roll with tsunami force breaks everything in its path except for the party. Recent shred out on Foxy Digitalis and Last Visible Dog. Cover art by Thomas Bernard on transparent paper with totally hand made tape labels. In an edition of 50." - Arbor.

Format: 3" CDR
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $6.50
"Summer is over dude. Bummer. Lots of left over Popsicle sticks and melted jams and memories of the pool are what remain. I guess that you can still have all that shit in Sun Valley, CA, but not in the Midwest. Its getting cold now, but thats beside the point. Gang Wizard gets together all the time and records the hardcore hang out sessions. Every time they are done we are left with a sweet document like this one. Totally rad dudes, in totally rad moods, creating totally rad tunes. Disjointed guitar jingles and all over the place drumming create a cacophony of positivity. Total Happiness from members of Foot Village, Rose For Bohdan, dynasty, and unicorn hard-on. Released for their fall 2006 NW tour in a numbered edition of 75 neon drenched popsicle-sticked canvases.

Artist: GARBES, RYAN
Title: Real Sugar
Format: 7"
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $6.50
"Ryan Garbes is the drummer of Iowa City bands such as Wet Hair, Dunebuggy, Trash Dog, and formerly Raccoo-oo-oon. His recordings under his own name represent a unique brand of solo multi-track recording with a seamless integrity; through a skillful use of instrumentation and recording technique, Garbes eschews notions of low fidelity for songs reminiscent of traditional American garage rock produced in the haze of an early 90s UK aesthetic. Genuine pop songs, cloaked in a comforting wash of reverb, as if Lou Reed had done a record for Creation; more ecstatic than obstructed Garbes voice is a refreshing one outside the continuum of contemporary four-track bedroom pop. In an edition of 300 copies with full color sleeve and printed labels by Ryan." -Arbor

Artist: GHOSTING
Title: Live/Oakland+
Format: Cass
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $6.50
"This Portland drone duo manages to create lengthy tracks with a psychedelic precision that makes you forget what time is/was/will be. This tape contains a track from a live show in Oakland with bustling airy drones and the dinging of bells luring the ears to go to places they have not been before. The track progresses thoughtfully with exact subtleties building to a climax only to come tumbling down with that exact progression. The B-side is a deja-vu conjugated burner starting where the other side ended. In a numbered edition of 100 copies with individually inked and sprayed tape labels in a silver sprayed case and ink drawn cloudscapes." - Arbor.

Artist: GIFFONI, CARLOS
Title: The Absence of Essence
Format: Double 7"
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Carlos Giffonis heavy synthesizer work recalls the crushing, massiveness of early industrial music. Completely consuming the air around it with heavy vibrations and total deprivation. These four tracks rip holes through the sonic barriers, loud and powerful but with entrancing subtleties and discreet builds. The nature of the 7" format does not harm Giffonis work which normally exists in extended lengths; instead very succinct and unwavering compositions result: creating four vignettes of grey industrial zones. As the person responsible for No Fun Productions and the No Fun Fest, this Brooklyn transplants presence in the current progression of the genre is undeniable. In an edition of 400 2x7"(one on white vinyl and one on black) sets in gatefold sleeves with art by Maya Miller of Heavy Tapes/Religious Knives." -Arbor

Artist: GOD WILLING/PRIVY SEALS
Title: Split
Format: LP
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"God Willing and Privy Seals are two of the prime purveyors of meditative harsh tones. God Willings guitar and oscillatior drone has been reaching epic levels of hypnosis lately and this piece is a great example. The repetitive nature of textured signals act like the swaying charm of the pocket watch: onward march. Matthew Sullivan has been crafting his Earn project recently, and this, one of the final Privy Seals recordings acts as a logical bridge. Heavy, hi-end guitar and tape interlacing: a harsh movement, but possessing transcendently soothing qualities buried under the deprivation of distorted tones. At the end of the hallway a door lies open. A long overdue document of the LA Diaspora. In an edition of 300 LPs with silkscreened chipboard covers by Ren Schofield." -Arbor

Artist: GOLDBERG, SAM
Title: Having Had Forgot
Format: LP
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Having Had Forgot marks a distinct departure from Sam Goldbergs past recordings, both his lush electric guitar and synth work as well as his borderline-pop project Radio People. Having Had Forgot features Sam working with a rotating ensemble of Midwestern musicians (Tiger Hatcherys Ben Billington, Mike Forbes, and Andrew Young; as well as J. Guy Laughlin, Ben Osbourne, and Jeff Host; for a total palette consisting of acoustic and electric guitar, field recording, percussion, synthesizer, saxophone, double bass, and clarinet). The result is eight careful, delicate songs; varied in instrumentation, but presenting the same elegant consideration of mood and contemplation as his solo works. Private music from a young man; a contemporary offering in the tradition of ensemble records on Windham Hill from William Ackerman and Mark Isham; the opportunity of actualizing personal moments through various actors and the unique textures they are each able to contribute to the whole. In an edition of 500 records with full color jacket and inner sleeves." - Arbor.

Artist: HAUSCHILDT, STEVE
Title: Rapt For Liquid Minister
Format: Cass
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $6.50
"Still-moving loops repeat and build themselves in deep washes of aural hallucination.  Steve is known for his work in Ohio synth-drone unit Emeralds.  Like the other output from the Emeralds crew, it is hard to believe that todays best synth music is being made by twenty year old dudes from the Cleveland suburbs, but they seriously just have it figured out. Steves smooth and densely layered drones, heavy in Kraut influence, are as huge as any of his contemporaries and as rich as his predecessors.  Vocal incantations reminiscent of "Way Their Crept" era Grouper place Steves compositions on another level. Deeply thoughtful and knowledgeable zones floating in and out of reality. In an edition of 150 labeled tapes with full color cardstock J-cards." - Arbor

Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $7.00
"I remember when the Zelda game came out for N64. I was all over that shit, but then forgot about it and never beat it. The thing I do remember is the sweet soundtrack it had. So-cal sunshine kids Horse Head have inadvertently recreated the sounds of the ocarina of time with guitars, drums, and voice. Past releases are hints of songs, these are "songs". Lyrics with all the joys and unjoys of being a human. Psych-pop for the kids. Down tempo tribal beats. Their most song based release yet(ever?). Upcoming album on Not Not Fun. In hand crafted/sewn cardstock pocket folders with conch shell stamped discs in an edition of 50." - Arbor.

Artist: INFINITY WINDOW
Title: Artificial Midnight
Format: LP
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"New York snyth duo Infinity Window have been crafting their game for well over a year without much documentation. Comprised of Dan Lopatin (Oneohtrix Point Never) and Taylor Richardson (Prehistoric Blackout), this LP shows them at the pinnacle of self-realization. Equally influenced by John Carpenter and the Taj Mahal Travelers, they create traveling music; music that has the power to transport and overwhelm the listener with vibes outside of those presently available to them. The A Side consists of two tracks, both clouded in a heavy haze of fog, dark and heavy though their clarity exists underneath the shroud. The B Sides lone track "Skull Theft" is the full circle realization of the first two tracks: a light is illuminated and the fog begins to clear. Mastered by Keith Fullerton Whitman." -Arbor.

Title: Hydrogen Falls
Format: Cass
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $6.50
"Denmark is a place teeming with half fried organic drone crews such as Sarahs Charity and Family Underground. Kaezm is the solo output for Nicolas Kauffmann of FU; here he channels electricity through criss-crossing patterns creating a midrange din full of lament. Nics drones move with static builds from a variety of sources and multiple levels of echoing chorus: airy, buzzing mantras tinged with Middle Eastern vibes and a deepening sense of time beat down like an incessant rainfall in a storm of hiss. In an edition of 100 labeled tapes with full color art by Nic." - Arbor.

Artist: KITES/EARTH CROWN
Title: Split
Format: LP
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"This is a cold vision of a dark trash covered future full of Sci Fi nightmares and strange out of body experiences. This is the final Kites recording and is perhaps the strangest and most chaotic piece in the prolific discography. Annihilation synth and tape collage, cut up, sped up and dialed to oblivion. Earth Crown steps it back, slows down the pulse, lets the edges of the static curl around the drone to the breaking point, where the damage is let loose, purged out and built again. This LP is a reminder of how cold, desolate, and haunting life can be. In an edition of 400 LPs with inserts, printed labels and silkscreened covers by Shawn Reed featuring art by Kites and Earth Crown. Co-released with Night People." -Arbor

Artist: MANIACS DREAM
Title: Zanzibar
Format: LP
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Finland is the epicenter of collective music-making. Under the name Maniacs Dream, members of a variety of Finnish bands such as Avarus, Fricara Pacchu, Kemialliset Ystävät, and more come together to create blown-out free rock (not your typical stoner guitar jams). Their unique/bizarre approach to music-making constantly questioning the construction/deconstruction of sound creates songs at times recalling the electro-acoustic clatter drone of Avarus crossed with tribal rhythms and intergalactic guitar zones. Total sonic freedom with a punk ethos directly influenced by a trip to Zanzibar prior to recording this record (which is a reissue of the long sold-out tape originally released on Lal Lal Lal in 2006). In an edition of 450 records on light blue vinyl with printed labels and full color pro-printed fold-over sleeves with art by Benjamin Bergman and an insert." - Arbor

"Cleveland guitar zoner and Emeralds member Mark McGuire crafts his most beautiful work yet. Delicate strumming to infinity floats in the clouds; acting in an almost medicinal way to provoke good vibes. Dreamy, light elation and nostalgia make each listen feel highly personal. Deep focus wraps you in the warmth of your own memories: subtle and powerful, spiritual and healing. Free your mind from its own constraints. In an edition of 150 tapes with full color art and labels." -Arbor

Artist: MEF TEEF / OWL XOUNDS EXPLODING GALAXY
Title: Split
Format: Cass
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $6.50
"Pure energy and total expression are the only boundaries around the free-jazz/music movement. Primitivism and psychedelic confusion act as the main themes. Mef Teef of Iowa City, a relatively new collective, have one past release on Raccoo-oo-oons Night People Label (of which MT percussionist Andy Spore is a member). Spastic drumming acts as the basis for which brass, piano, and silence interweave. Culled from a hometown live session, "Dark Star Voyage Pt. 1" features unique instrumental interplay causing the piece to progress almost theatrically with definitive mood changes. Brooklyns Owl Xounds Exploding Galaxy is a heavy hitter in the free jazz underground. Comparisons to avant-garde greats are not unjustified. With a recent LP out on Wooden Wands Mad Monk label and a plethora of sold out self released jams, this is the collectives first tape. Focused on the youthful energy of punk music and centered around the drumming of Adam Kriney (La Otracina, Castanets), in "Transmission To The Pineapple Universe", Owl Xounds produce pure blown out oblivion never faltering in its onward progression. Recorded live at the Cakeshop featuring Gene Janas on upright bass, Darius Jones on alto sax, and Greg Vegas on electric guitar the jam is a total freak-out, seething equally with nods to Sonny Simmons as it is to Sonic Youth. In a numbered edition of 100 tapes with printed labels, art and an insert by Andy Spore." - Arbor

Artist: MILLER, EVAN/GOWN
Title: Split
Format: Cass
Label: Arbor
Country: US
Price: $6.50
"The power is out. The power is back. This tape juxtaposes two expert guitarists against each other on the natural A/B boundaries of the cassette medium. Iowas own Evan Miller creates long drifting ragas (or as he like to call them, spells) of acoustic guitar work akin to contemporaries such as Fahey and Rose, but strays from their "minstrel in the country" vibe and going more towards "a fisherman on the wharf" style. Even though there are no words, the emotion and story of his songs are obvious. "Specter" was recorded during a storm adding an ominous atmospheric quality to the meandering spell. On the flip side, Gown creates sky high electric guitar drones similar to his work in Bark Haze, but his presence in the solo setting adds a particularly nice clarity to his work; much less of an overload leaving more time to really soak into the jam. "Pigeon Church" is one of his first recordings since leaving his internship at Ecstatic Peace and moving up to rural Maccan, Nova Scotia. In a numbered edition of 100 tapes in 3 color silkscreened sleeves with tape labels and an insert." - Arbor.

"Alex Twomeys Mirror to Mirror project continues a long standing tradition of Southern California artists focused on introspection and slow simplicity.  Inspired by long roads and large open spaces; as well as their place within the daily repetition, finding sense within the nonsense.  Light washes of painterly composition; evolving harmonies transform, turning in on themselves.  The first track, Laughing and Understanding , was developed last winter on the California tour with Infinite Body, Pedestrian Deposit, Earn, Cloaked Light, and Pale Blue Sky.  In an edition of 150 copies with professionally duplicated/imprinted cassettes and cardstock covers." -Arbor

Hartford always leaves the audience guessing, whether it is his cut up garbage sources, contact micd gurgles or hairwhips, the end result is guaranteed to be something physical. The truth lies somewhere within the mess of cables and the stack of amps; they must be destroyed to uncover it.

Artist: ONEOHTRIX POINT NEVER
Title: Zones Without People
Format: LP
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Daniel Lopatins Oneohtrix Point Never represents a rift in time; an isolationist expedition into the archaeology of sound, notably the analog polysynth as a means of organic creation. �??Zones Without People�?� is the second record in the OPN trilogy; acting as a bridge between the drifting, alien compositions of �??Betrayed in The Octagon�?� and a music more rooted in melody and introspective nostalgia as a search for self. An exercise in �??in between-ness: reconciling noise and melodicism, the stasis of drone and the spasomadic nature of concret, the historical narrative of 70s Kraut synth music and 80s techno. Arpeggios and sequencers play a key role in this amalgamation, as these forms of repetition create an attachment to a certain sentiment neither human nor machine. The record reflects this transformation; the A Side has distinct emotional flourishes, while the majority of the B Side seems to be overtaken in cold, mechanized melodies (like attempts at teaching a machine to feel). The final track �??Hyperdawn�?� is a solution to these two disparate modes of interpreting stimuli: a pure union of veins and patch cables." - Arbor.

"John Elliot (of Emeralds, Lilypad, Daylight Savings Time) has spent many years mastering his MS-10. This tape from his young Outer Space project is an exploratory trip into the deep caves; synthesized water drips into stalactite formation.

Price: $14.00
"John Elliotts Outer Space project is a laboratory for electronic investigation. Acting as a continuance of the studies of mid 20th century electronic music composers such as Nik Pascal and Laurie Spiegel, Elliotts music is deeply indebted to the inner workings of the electric signal. Acting almost as a meditation, through the simple gesture of translation Elliotts process begins to reveal itself as electricity is converted into acoustic pressure and potential; the melody of physics. The six recordings on the album are each a microcosmic view into Elliotts practice; a keystone, illuminating his solo practice as well as his work as a member of Emeralds. Composed and recorded over the past three years without the use of digital synthesizers and arpeggiation; a record closely connected to a personal path, attempting to make sense, to understand ones journey. Mastered by Keith Fullerton Whitman; pressed in a second edition of 350 copies on black vinyl with full color gloss covers and black and white printed inner sleeves.." -Arbor

Artist: PALE BLUE SKY
Title: Shades Of Grey
Format: LP
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"Pale Blue Sky is the new project from Mike Pollard (formerly Treetops). Shades Of Grey is the projects genesis; a long considered transition uniting the organic drone-work of the former project with compositional structures.  The recordings embody a delicate sense of distance; staring out at the moving landscape obscured by the mediation of the window.  Through blurred fidelity the origin of melody is placed under microscopic inquiry; an exploration into the moment of tonal interaction.  Pale Blue Sky utilizes repetition and non-linear movements, attempting to reconcile simplicity, form, and sentiment through modes of difference.  Placing focus on spatial concerns, as well as emotive potential, the five songs contained within are each different embodiments of the possibility of the transformative decay of remembrance.  An ephemeral glimpse; the moment has already passed. For quiet, distanced listening. Mastered by William Hutson, cut at 45 rpm.  In an edition of 400 copies with full color glossy jackets, printed inner sleeves, and printed labels." - Arbor.

Artist: PEDESTRIAN DEPOSIT
Title: Kithless
Format: LP
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"Pedestrian Deposit (Jonathan Borges and Shannon A. Kennedy) possesses a certain, restrained relationship to texture. Sources both electric and acoustic operate on a logic of hybridity_ becoming compositional elements organized through their activation of a shared acoustic space. This functions in multiple directions: in some instances, the cello is captured and converted to a subtle electronic variation, expanding the range of the tone through this capture, at other times it acts as a sort of mimicry, tools of one sort operating on the language of the other_ the cello played like a burst of noise, or electronic presence informed by the technique natural to the bow. The compositional practice developed by the duo is strict, bearing the marks of tension informed by the rigor of live performance. The pieces on Kithless are documents of this practice; Drift Gently Down the Frigid Tides of Sleep was recorded live at Activating the Medium XIII:ICE in San Francisco on April 17, 2010. The performance extends the use of hybrid and musique concrete forms by engaging with the physical limits of the body through voluntary hypothermia, transforming the performers state and relationship to compositional tools. Under a Veil of Living Light, a staple from the 2009 East Coast tour, is a drifting of the hybrid forms expressed above, weaving in and out of each other; traces of texture, combined and re-combined. Kithless is Pedestrian Deposits first LP album since its incarnation as a duo in 2008. It follows their compact disc releases Austere and East Fork / North Fork, both on Monorail Trespassing (2009 and 2010, respectively)_ their body of work thus far shows a dedication to a minor, often overlooked, field in contemporary practice directly concerned with the technologies of composition and the ways in which sounds touch each other. Recorded June 2009 - June 2010, and mastered by William Hutson, and transferred for vinyl at Dubplates and Mastering by Frederic Stader on March 16, 2011. In an edition of 500 copies." - Arbor.

"Taylor Richardson conjures deep stoned synth vibes in the duo Infinity Window and has spread his psych seed across the country with his time in Sunburned Hand Of The Man. Prehistoric Blackout is his solo project where he takes 18+ years of guitar playing and redefines the instrument; creating impossible sounds and ghost rhythms in heavily psychedelic zones. A beautiful statement of opposing levels of clarity: a tribute to recreational drugs. In an editions of 100 tapes with full color art by Taylor and tape labels." -Arbor

Artist: RAGLANI
Title: Husk
Format: Double LP
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $23.00
"Husk, a career-spanning double-LP retrospective marking Raglanis "early period" (2004-2009), is both the artists "Best-of" collection*, as well as a document of a personal orientation within the canon of electronic music. As a devoted student of E.M. history and synthesis techniques, Joseph Raglani has spent the past decade in his St. Louis studio consuming and refiguring. While highly-informed, these tracks avoid simple derivation, the traces of influence are not easily decipherable; the common descriptors fall away. The sonic legacies orbiting the INA GRM axis cross paths with pop sensibilities more akin to the sensuous pulse of New Order. Raglani mines the expressiveness of this fertile boundary space. The compositions on Husk are dense featuring a palette of analog and digital electronic instruments as well as guitar, voice, pedal steel, organ, melodica. Disparate elements find a way to resonate to maximum emotive effect. The sonic energies are not bound to their sources, but are rather utilized for their ability to express.
One fourth of the material is available here for the first time; the remainder from private-press and small run releases has been remixed by Raglani and re-mastered by Greg Davis for presentation in this collection. Husk is Raglanis second mass-market release following his 2008 CD Of Sirens Born released on Kranky Records. Artwork by Robert Beatty (Three Legged Race / Hair Police / Resonant Hole). In an edition of 500 copies with printed inner-sleeves." - Arbor.

Title: Whispering Gallery
Format: LP
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Following recent tape releases on Young and Ekhein, Bill Hutsons Rale project should no longer be an elusive one. His modular synthesized low-end focus reaches new depths with each release; managing to provide a richness in texture and a deep listening experience in slow moving forms. Hutson exercises a dedicated control and mastery in composition as a result of his overwhelming knowledge of the potentials of sound. ⿿Far off organ chords become enveloped by an atmospheric heavy air; melody isnt shunned, but obscured. Frequencies arranged seamlessly, with a modest approach; like the growth of a grey cloud. In an edition of 400 12⿝ EPs in proprinted cardboard sleeves with printed labels." - Arbor.

"Jeff Witschers Rene Hell has been steadily developing a hybrid form of digital synthesis; existing in a space of inquiry somewhere between science fiction futurism, baroque classicism, and minimal techno machination.  Almost as if an equal consideration has been placed on the past as the future; cancelling their effects, channeling both through the present.   Syncopated patterns interweave with a distinct precision; constantly developing, mutating.  Recorded Summer 2010 in Vienna, Austria.  In an edition of 150 copies with professionally duplicated/imprinted cassettes and cardstock covers designed by Witscher." -Arbor

Title: Violin Petal {Auden}/Whipped Secrets
Format: LP
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Rene Hell and Three Legged Race investigate the space where classically outsider musical forms begin to intersect with more popular ones.  Taking cues from science fiction and early electronic / tape music and translating them through lens of minimal techno and the personal logic of bedroom recording; both creating something unclassifiable in its hybrid form.  Rene Hells four part suite Violin Petal {Auden} follows his recent LP on Type with its distinct form of digital synthesis and future-concrète; cyclic music expanding and contracting throughout a cybernetic space.  The confusion of communication, control source unknown.  Signals crossed along a technological drift.  Robert Beattys Three Legged Race presents a three part suite, Whipped Secrets.  Investigating herein an application of early automatic synthesizer music manipulated into linear form based song structure.  Developing softly, the first movement sounds like a loner folk recording from a distant future time; complete with vocals, staring sad eyed across an open expanse, contemplating the state of things.  Slowly, this form unravels into a more abstract and automatic based territory; rhythmic and melodic staccato signals possessed with an almost intelligent logic of their own.  Communication shifts from the man to his machine.  In an edition of 400 copies with glossy jackets featuring images by each artist and printed inner sleeves and center labels designed by Jeff Witscher." - Arbor

"Its about time that two of the West Coasts best units share a slab of vinyl together. This is an epic coupling. LAs Robedoor (an obvious Arbor favorite) present what might be their best work yet, "Tremor Deliverance". Synths and subdued vocals weave together into an ornamental sound tapestry with heavy Middle Eastern influence. Total satyagraha. Portlands Yellow Swans are constantly touring (just now embarking on a multi-month European jaunt) and spreading the word of sonic liberation.

Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $9.00
"Among the metal forests of Denmark, there is Sarahs Charity. A maelstrom of expert tone work and free electricity; sounds so electric, yet still reminiscent of the flowing natural growth of fellow Danes Family Underground (it should be noted that Nicolas of FU helps out on track 2). This naturalism plus the actual sterility create a feeling nothing short of psychedelic. A wall of intense oscillation and soothing vacuous space ala Marcia Bassetts various projects. Speaking of Marcia, SC is also famed for being the only non Bassett/Bower related project to be released on the esteemed Heavy Blossom label.

"⿿The Immeasurable Gift⿝ is a testament to cathartic possibilities and the role of creation/release as a means of understanding.  Recorded throughout the past three years in a variety of locations and personal moments; encapsulated by a common, unrelenting concern. Beautifully delicate, elegiac melodies concealed within curtains of dense electronic ambiance reveal themselves like the light at the end of the tunnel; a signifier of the temporary vessel form. Balancing recklessness with care and coming to terms with the inevitable; encountering the man on the shoulder, reminding us that we are all just weary travelers.  In an edition of 425 records in full color proprinted cardboard jackets with printed labels and an insert; all design by Jeff Witscher." -Arbor

Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"Time to tell all the 77 dudes to get hip to the 07 sound. Vancouvers Shearing Pinx and Los Angeles Silver Daggers are North Americas ambassadors for the new wave of skronk/thrash/post-whatever punk. The Pinx play angular, expertly timed, staccato waves of noise and punk. Two long songs sandwiching one short one in typical Pinx fashion. The Daggers (experts of interpreting animal sounds w/ regular rock instruments) create utterly epic art-punk jams complete with swirling synths and horns based around solid drumming and guitar/bass interplay. One track was recorded live at The Smell, coming complete with mosh philosophies, while the second track recalls David Byrnes "boombox experiments" circa Stop Making Sense. Be sure to check out their new record on Load! In an edition of 400 numbered copies on concrete grey vinyl w/ hand stamped labels in 2 color silkscreen cardstock sleeves and a long insert." - Arbor.

Artist: SUN CIRCLE
Title: Lessness
Format: Double LP
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"Following in the tradition of minimalist composers such as La Monte Young, Yoshi Wada, and Charlemagne Palestine, Sun Circle exemplifies a contemporary focus on long form drone music. Members Greg Davis and Zach Wallace have shown their interest in the field with extended works on Kranky and Root Strata respectively; together on Lessness, they show a deep-rooted interest in the power of simple forms. Building upon themes from their recent solo work (Davis subtly shifting tonal work with electronic oscillators and Wallaces acoustic drone work on the glass armonica), Lessness is comprised of four side long works each exhibiting a different acoustic instrument in isolation. Exploring drums, tambouras (both rhythmic and droning), and gongs with a meditative precision, Davis and Wallaces work seems at once both mechanic and human; the product of focus, revealing a vast beauty within the subtlety of the geometric potential of sound. In an edition of 400 copies with full color matte jackets." -Arbor.

Format: Cass
Label: Arbor

Price: $10.00
"Alex Cobbs Taiga Remains project pushes the exact opposite vibes as the name of his Students of Decay label. With use of nothing but guitar and pedals Cobb materializes lush and precise drones which seem to come directly out of the air. So heavy and powerful that they dont even seem to exist, nor could they come from any instrument / human. Total peace and solitude; meditative Eastern vibes transcendent in and of themselves. The A sides "Winter Tai-Tung" is a light and breezy trip through the mist, growing unconsciously, beyond notice until the track ends. The B sides "Spring Shan-Lin-Shi" recalls visions ten seconds of prayer service slowed down and stretched into ten minutes, like the sound right after a bell rings hung in static forever.

Title: I Am Just To Myself
Format: Cass
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $7.00
"By now this duo should be far from a mystery though their psychic audio mythos has been continually deepening, growing, and transcending. Comprised of Vanishing Voice members G. Lucas Crane(Non-Horse) and Heidi Diehl, these New Yorkers flee the trappings of the fashion capital of the world for the land of home grown psychedelia. Non-Horse plays a crate of cassette tapes and a chain of delay. Wrapping sounds from various sources into a concocted aural remedy from reality, a psychedelic blanket sheltering you from the outside world. Heidi lends her voice and dripping dream guitar work to the powers at hand, juxtaposing heavy bass with light whispers and shimmering strings with deep murmurs. On the B side fellow spirit forcer Steve Gunn of GHQ brings a new element to the group, percussion. A natural oneness is developed between all players, creating earth music with a deeply rooted sense of calmness and serenity. In an edition of 100 numbered tapes with printed labels." -Arbor.

"Suburban Michigan is a breeding ground where every weirdo has a label, a band, and a handful of secret/under the radar collaborative projects.  Here Graveyards Ben Hall and Lambsbreads Zac Davis create a monolithic one sider influenced by too many private press jazz records and abstract instrumentalism.  Davis turns in his effect pedals for nothing; pure clean tones plucked up and down scales and bridges so uniquely that it is easy to confuse the guitar for a sax.  Ben Hall drums like a man with four arms; constant rattling trap tapping and assorted pots and pans clattering, flowing completely smoothly.  A perfect union of  sound.  In an edition of 300 copies in screened chipboard sleeves by Anthony Decanini.

"Spirited youth and the intense magnification of focused energies chart the recent zones for Treetops. Utilizing tapes, casio keyboards, vocals and a variety of other sources, the path to earth bound nature drone is firmly rooted in electricity.  Like the combination of the glacial drifts of massive rocks and the movements of air, the sources meld into blissed out meditative drones: ceremonial music rising into the future to get out of the past.  Infinite ancients; constantly progressing, constantly evolving. Mastered by Pete Swanson (D. Yellow Swans); in an edition of 300 copies in proprinted foldover sleeves featuring photography by Kyle Parker (Infinite Body). The B-Side features a remastered and extended version of the "When I Was Younger" 2xc10 (arbor69) from last winter." - Arbor

Artist: TREETOPS/CYGNUS
Title: Split
Format: Cass
Label: Arbor
Country: US
Price: $6.50
"At its purest, recorded music is two things: basements and one track recorders. Treetops and Cygnus are a complimentary pair of basement sludge psychers armed with little more than a few effect pedals (no distortion?!). The Treetops track is a grower and coming in at just under 10 minutes one of the longer Treetops jams to date. Light guitar strumming, tape manipulations and the occasional incantation are the sole sources for "Wild Beauty". Sky bound riffs float through the storm clouds. This track is a companion piece to the upcoming Ecstatic Peace tape, "In The Vanilla Grove/ Man and Horse". Cygnus is the guitar/keyboard duo of Heath Moerland (Sick Llama/Fag Tapes) and his friend Glen. Heath and Glen use slow flanged strumming and haunted house keyboards all progressing at a slow-ed down pace. The second track starts out with some fuzzed heavy riffage and keyboard overload while progressively deconstructing itself to two guitars; a totally zoned out "I forgot we were recording" style gem. Much more chill then their previous blown out shred fests. In a numbered edition of 100 sprayed/stamped tapes in red youth stickered poly cases." - Arbor.

"Even though Warmth main man Steev Thompson still appears to be incommunicado totally epic recordings continue to surface. Before Roxanne Jean Police was officially over and Steev still lived in Chicago, he joined up with another then Chicago resident Branden Diven of Quilts/American Grizzly Records. The jams that were created filled a couple of cdrs and the Warmth side of the split with Quintana Roo on Not Not Fun. This LP consists of a remixed and edited version of the original cdr running at just under 45 minutes. Forgotten smog floats through a Northside basement. Sounds emanate but their source is totally unrecognizable. Quiet growing tonal blobs erupt into washes of aural color. A complete union of samplers, synths, vocals, guitar, organs, percussion, and electronics merge to create the sounds contained within; a loss of individual existence. Completely serene. In an edition of 300 LPs on creamy yellow vinyl with hand stamped labels in pro-printed and screened fold over sleeves with art by Roy Tatum and an insert by Steev." - Arbor.

Price: $8.00
"If a tape should ever be described using the word "submerged" it is this one. Watersports is the Brooklyn duo of Russ Waterhouse and Lea Cho, who in the same configuration also make up Blues Control. The A side begins with "submerged" bubble sounds mastered from the inside of an aquarium. The serene scene ebbs and flows until shimmering keyboards pierce the murk like sun into the blimey deep. On the B side the duo is joined by Aaron Rosenblum of Son Of Earth/Sapat. This track is keyboard heavy from the start with what seems like all three of the players weaving sounds through each others keyboarding. A glorious and shimmering overtone blurs reality. Howling flutes act as sea creatures in crisis. If you put the shell up to your ear and concentrate you can hear Rosenblum totally shredding.

Artist: YEH, C SPENCER & LASSE MARHAUG
Title: The Elementary Particles
Format: 7"
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $5.50
"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. In an edition of 400 7"s in proprinted foldover sleeves with art Jose DeDiego and an insert." -Arbor

Title: Split
Format: 7"
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $6.00
"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

"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.
