Artist: DRAGGING AN OX THROUGH WATER
Title: Tropics Of Phenomenom
Format: LP
Label: Awesome Vistas
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"BRIAN MUMFORDs landscape and surroundings dictated an early love of the virtuosic warblings of classic country before he slowly developed a taste for the distorted recordings and uneven energy of punk rock. DRAGGING AN OX THROUGH WATER marries the lyrical twang of country and folk to the the broken textures of feedback, drones, tape hiss, and the howl of homemade oscillators. A strong value on the contrast between chance and intention makes both performances and recordings a constantly evolving process. These songs are hymns, lovesongs, (atheist?) prayers, political meditations, and notes-to-self. Limited to 400 copies." -Awesome Vistas

Price: $15.00
"Appalachian-born singer/songwriter LINDA HAGOOD (DOUBLE-U, SMACK DAB) releases her first solo album Pink Love/Red Love on famed artist CHRIS JOHANSONs Awesome Vistas label. Conjuring a kaleidoscopic, magical, and visionary sonic landscape, Hagood pays tribute to her own unique iconography with lyrical elegies to crabs, kangaroos, caducei, pink and green vampires, and little hyenas. An enchanting and unique hothouse of seeming contradictions -- fierce yet funny, strange yet familiar, hypnotic yet surprising-these songs are also a fully realized musical vision for this soulful, peculiar, and accomplished artist. Beautiful cover artwork by CHRISTINE SHIELDS." -Awesome Vistas

Artist: SHIELDS, CHRISTINE
Title: In the Sun
Format: LP
Label: Awesome Vistas
Country: US
Price: $18.00
"PHIL FRANKLIN (SUNBURNED HAND OF THE MAN) nailed it when he referred to In The Sun, CHRISTINE SHIELDS first solo LP, as "ten songs of dark and light." The album is very much about opposites, the sun and  moon, descent into darkness and return to light. Instrumentation includes guitar, banjo, baritone uke, and voice, with percussion by WILLIAM WINANT, guitar JOE GOLDRING (ENABLERS, TOUCHED BY A JANITOR, SWANS), soundscapes by SHEILA BOSCO (FAUN FABLES, AUTOBODY), and drums and production by TIM MOONEY (AMERICAN MUSIC CLUB). Shields musical pedigree includes ARCHIPELAGO BREWING COMPANY, GROUSE MOUNTAIN SKYRIDE, SHADY CREEK GRILS, and STEEPLE CHASE, but one could hardly be blamed if none of the above ring a bell. ABC released a CD on Brinkiman in the 90s, and Grouse Mountain Skyride contributed a track to a Kill Rock Stars Comp, but Shields is perhaps best known for her portraits of musicians, short-lived comic book Blue Hole and dark and humorous, Addams-meets-Gorey illustration work for countless small-press publications and zines. Her music, like her images, is dreamy, dark, melodic, harmonious, and high-lonesome. (That old-time influence has its hooks in her good.) If you want to make her day, compare her to Opal. You wouldnt be far off the mark." - Awesome Vistas.
