Artist: ANAKSIMANDROS, THE
Title: River of Finland
Format: LP
Label: Eclipse
Country: USA
Price: $13.50
"Finlands Anaksimandros play avant-folk music that is improvised and psychedelic. Some of the members are involved with other groups you may be familiar with such as Kemialliset Ystävät and Avarus. These recordings from 2002 feature strummed and plucked strings, clattery percussion, chanting vocals, reeds, hand percussion, bowed instruments and more that I cannot properly describe. Edition of 500 copies with printed jackets featuring some great black and white artwork from the group. Highly recommended for fans of Finnish folk, Jewelled Antler label, Sunburned Hand of the Man, No Neck Blues Band, Jackie-O Motherfucker, Sunroof!, Vibracathedral Orchestra...You need to hear this." - Eclipse.

Artist: CARTER, TOM
Title: Root King
Format: LP
Label: Eclipse
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Second solo release (first if CDRs dont count) by Charalambides member Tom Carter. White Les Paul copy, lap steel, and a purloined bell collection layered into three long tracks of string moan and slithering hum. Amanifesto of grounding during an uprooted time, an attempt to bend in the wind. A slice of a long winter and a momentary flash of cranially pooled guitar sound suddenly scattered by unexpected freedom. A guitar album (mostly)." - Eclipse.

Artist: CARTER, TOM & MARCIA BASSETT
Title: Zaika
Format: LP
Label: Eclipse
Country: USA
Price: $13.50
"Limited edition (500 copies) lp from the duo of Tom Carter (Charalambides / Badgerlore / Friday Group) and Marcia Bassett (Double Leopards / Hototogisu / Shackamaxon). Screen printed jackets from Alan Sherry (Siwa Records)." - Eclipse.

Artist: CHARALAMBIDES
Title: IN CR EA SE
Format: Double LP
Label: Eclipse
Country: USA
Price: $16.50
"A long glimpse at a special and hazily documented node of vibrational warmth taken from Charalambides shifting history, recorded with the original duo of Tom & Christina Carter in the Heather-less interlude between their 2000-2001 tours. IN CR EA SE is four side-long escavations of the auditory plane defined by interweaving threads of lap steel and chord organ and swept by intermittent currents of breath-born voice and serene modalities cycled upward into towering microtonal dissonances, then flung down into corners of dark intimacy. And summoned back up again (once you flip the record)." This is one time pressing of 1000 copies in a printed black and white sleeve. Looks and sounds beautiful!" - Eclipse.

Artist: CHARALAMBIDES
Title: Rose/Thorn
Format: LP
Label: Eclipse
Country: USA
Price: $21.00
"Long-, long-, long-, loooooong-awaited and singular entry in the Charalambides and Klang Industries discographies; one of those does it really exist? items thats finally seeing daylight, or moonlight. A stark, unsettling and beautiful slice of duo Charlambides invocation/incantation, taken from the period between Jason Bill and Heather Leigh Murrays tenures with the band and featuring extraordinary chord organ and vocal work from Christina and some signature lap steel mastery from Tom. Fans of the bands most recent, more song-based work will find this relevatory, long-time listeners will say ahhhh and settle in for the flight. Heavy vinyl, limited pressing, cover handiwork by Tom, the first release in years from Klang and a sign perhaps of a truly epic revival." "Long-awaited Klang debut of Charalambides. This record has been brewing since 2000, and is now finally available under the auspices of Eclipse/Klang. Two side-long improvisations in much the same vein as IN CR EA SE, a bit more topographical perhaps, but still horizontally serene and horizonless. Chord organ, lap steel, vocals." --Wholly Other.

Artist: DEAD MACHINES
Title: Live at Tzompantli
Format: LP
Label: Eclipse
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"The a side was recorded at the first No Fun Festival in March 2004 (Brooklyn) and features a little comedy to start with and then things get heavy...and the second side is the very first VG Kids/Wolf Den Ypsi Street Level throwdown....our set was live on a 6 color shirt screen press and Nate brought a fog machine that blasted out the room and into the parking lot night of the VG complex...near the end you can hear people chucklin cause its absurd..that night was also the first "offical" Sick Llama, and MI debut of Failing Lights...great night....DM had a weird 7 small speaker set up on the heads of the press and spun it slighty for that dead-universe dying electronic creeping blast sound....." Printed covers with the back cover featuring a demented John Olson collage - killer!"

Artist: DOUBLE LEOPARDS
Title: Halve Maen
Format: Double CD
Label: Eclipse
Country: USA
Price: $17.50
"After two full length LPs and a handful of CDRs comes Double Leopards magnum opus, a tome to the alveoli, paranormal science, and murderous intrigue on the high seas. A rueful journey that they are all still recovering from, the Leopards had to boldly ingest substances that while harmful to their original earthly containers, turned the ghosts of Panthalassa from transparent to opaque, allowing them to see with their mortal eyes the horrible shape of the enemy. With guitars, tapes, piano, drums, and a craggy heap of rusted electronics, they went to battle, and like the early grainy photographs of Americas Civil War, the document is poignant and will only gain significance as time passes and the medium improves." - Eclipse.

Artist: FURSAXA
Title: Alone in the Dark Wood
Format: LP
Label: Eclipse
Country: USA
Price: $16.50
"Beautiful new release from Tara Burke (aka Fursaxa) features 12 tracks recorded in Philadelphia and Ulvila, Finland (recorded by Sami Sänpäkkilä). Also has Taras cover design and artwork in a nice 12x24 inch foldout insert. Edition of 950 copies." -Eclipse. CD version is on ATPR.

Artist: LABREQUE, PAUL & VALERIE WEBB
Title: Trees, Chants and Hollers
Format: LP
Label: Eclipse
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Duo weaves a cautious, dreamy folk spell, reminiscent of the vocal impressionism and effected acoustic sonics of Charalambides, beautiful stuff charged with a sense of desperation and love lingering on the edge of loss. Ties to Sunburned Hand of the Man and other Boston area ensembles, like Bright." - Lee Jackson.

Artist: MIDDLETON, IAN
Title: With and Without Late
Format: LP
Label: Eclipse
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"This is some more music I made, some with LATE, to make myself feel good. I played a late 1970s obsolete analogue synth and LATE played various instruments on one track. Side one takes a quasi-psych drone form while side two veers off into stranger waters, playing off some unexpected juxtapositions and combinations of sounds." - Ian Middleton. One time pressing of 110 copies.

Artist: MIGRANTES
Title: Monsoon Moods
Format: LP
Label: Eclipse
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
This is the 2nd LP by Migrantes (Jason Bill {guitar, air organ, Hammond organ, cymbal} & Caroline Vickers {Hammond organ & vocals}) of Tucson, AZ. Pressed in an edition of 536 copies and housed in a lovely printed full color jacket, this is a sublime record! ⿿For those that have never been there, the desert signifies space, sand, and nothing. When I (who live nowhere near any deserts) first visited Jason & Caroline (who live smack in the middle of one), that was what I had thought too. I was a bit surprised that the desert in fact looks nothing like its platonic counterpart - it is in fact interlaced with ropy thorned plants, crawls with life of every species, and is inevitably circumscribed by distant mountains. For some, Monsoon Moods may capture the real desert, the one where home fires burn under looming stone, where love and life flourish in austerity. For me though this LP somehow encompasses sweaty nights in 100 degree summer warehouses, ghostly drives through Norfolk shipyards, the slow crack of datura pods drying in the sun, and all the other things that have grown inside j&c to buoy them up into this warmly inviting space illuminated by their big hearts. A stunning record that camouflages the simplicity of its ingredients with songs of glowing precision and vox-laced Hammond drones of vertical majesty.⿝ - Tom Carter.

Artist: MIGRANTES
Title: Moon Journals
Format: LP
Label: Eclipse
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Migrantes is Caroline Vickers and Jason Bill (ex-Charalambides). Based now in Tucson Arizona, Migrantes recorded Moon Journals in Houston, El Paso, Newport News, Hampton and Tucson. On Moon Journals, Migrantes create psychedelic folk music using voice, acoustic and electric guitars, air organ, kalimba, clarinet, and found sounds. Results are both traditional and experimental. Released in an edition of 336 copies with printed jackets featuring photographs by Jason Bill. Highly recommended!" - Eclipse.

Artist: MONOSOV/SWIRNOFF
Title: Recorded Works Vol. 3
Format: LP
Label: Eclipse
Country: USA
Price: $14.50
"California sound artists Ilya Monosov and Preston Swirnoff return with two more sonic labyrinths stretched over disparate terrain. As on their previous albums, Monosov and Swirnoff cast boundaries to the wind. Disillusioned and wise to the ways of the world, the duo not only succeeds in propping up the shambolic planet they created on Recorded Works Vol. 1 & Vol. 2, but also in soaring toward the furthest reaches of distant suns. Blurring the line between composition and improvisation, these new installments are rare, unearthed gems. Volume 3 begins with dancing shadows and acoustic myopia. Monosovs minimal vocals lead Swirnoffs piano ramblings deeper into the cerebral maze, inadvertently finding the best route out. Setting off the shaky delicacy of the opener and Side A closer, Repeat Again (with enchanting vocals from Naomi) are the raucous, industrial rhythms of Snake Lust and Fly Away. The Indian-inspired drones of With Charles Curtis top the whole thing off with cinematic splendor. Monosov and Swirnoff manage to seamlessly mesh these ideas into a cohesive whole." --Brad Rose.

Title: Seven Recorded Works (Volume 1)
Format: LP
Label: Eclipse
Country: USA
Price: $13.50
"The sound of two souls, all alone in claustrophobically infinite space. These two volumes see disenchanted Californians Ilya Monosov and Preston Swirnoff whittling out their own autonomous spaces far from the surf and sun, then climbing in and nailing the door firmly shut behind them. Seven Recorded Works comes over like someone has leached the spirits of Ennio Morricone, Eric Satie and Pauline Oliveros, stuffed them in a leaky wooden barrel, and set them rolling out to sea on a spring riptide. Uncertain, hesitant piano and melodica miniatures undercut with the evil drone of harmonica and hurdy-gurdy. Its a creaking and queasy trip, guaranteed to heave underwater, piratical nightmares out of some long suppressed substream of your subconscious." - Alan Cummings. Edition of 500 copies.

Artist: MONOSOV/SWIRNOFF
Title: Two Recorded Works (Volume 2)
Format: LP
Label: Eclipse
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Two Recorded Works opens in equally brooding, cinematic fashion with Swirnoffs air organ slow gasping its weighted way through magenta dust-clouds of bowed guitar. Later, sea-shanty bellows underscore the spectral traces of whistles and ghosted vocals and whistles to particularly melancholic effect. But the final side, credited to Monosov and Swirnoffs rock unit The Shining Path, is a whole other kettle of herring. It rockets upwards into the fuzzed out expansive zones of the Rallizes sound, but is tethered to an on-edge, speedfreak shake of a Suicide rhythm, just too fast for comfort. Bliss handily circumvented, higher mind tied to delerium tremens. I think theyre trying to tell us something" - Alan Cummings. "Time passed, and we began recording Volume 2 which contains our experiments with song form and our rock band, The Shining Path. We would like to thank Ed Hardy for offering us creative freedom over a span of four vinyl records, the last of which we plan to record in 2005." - Eclipse. Ilya Monosov (2005). Edition of 500 copies.

Title: Puhalluspelto
Format: LP
Label: Eclipse
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Following their impressive cdr release on the Dutch label Whistle Along, comes the debut vinyl release from Finlands avant folk group Päivänsäde. Members of this group also perform with Rauhan Orkesteri, Lauhkeat Lampat, and Kiila which some of you may be familiar with. The sound? Well, you hear strings plucked and scraped, hand percussion and drums, woodwinds, vocals (sometime wailing), and other instruments I cannot identify. If you dig the Anaksimandros, Kemialliset Ystävät, Avarus, Pylon, etc., youll want to hear this. I was not familiar with Päivänsäde when they, without any previous contact with me, sent me a cdr of this album back in January. I listened to it and was immediately stunned from start to finish so I listened to it again to be sure I heard what I did. After that I sent an e-mail to the address provided with the cdr and asked if I could issue this on vinyl. Finally, this is now available and it is one of the best Eclipse releases to date - one I am very proud to release. Edition of 500 copies with beautiful full color printed sleeves." - Eclipse.

Artist: PELT
Title: Heraldic Beast
Format: Double LP
Label: Eclipse
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"Intense 2 LP survey of Pelt geography around the turn of the century, compiling live recordings the band issued on cdrs in tiny editions or on comps plus some unreleased material. Combines the most all-out electric attacks Pelts ever deigned to release, plus some of the growling drone float that preceded/coincided with the bands jump into acoustic material. Off the hook gatefold packaging that maybe offers hints of sources, etc. Full list of recording dates/locations/prior releases is supposed to be posted on www.klang.org soon." This dbl lp set is sure to blow some minds - especially those who have come to know Pelt in the past 2-3 years. These early recordings (1998-2003) are heavy and sure to please those who have been waiting patiently for this. The packaging is incredible, too - with beautiful artwork and a very sturdy gatefold sleeve. Dig it." - Eclipse.

Title: Bleach Has Feelings Too/To Cover Up Your Right To Live
Format: Double LP
Label: Eclipse
Country: USA
Price: $19.50
"Propagandizing 13 tonal music? We all need something....sexy religion? Where were YOU when the blue was BLUE? Youll never check-out OR leave Fog Hotel...its like being in the middle and blowing both sides off the map. You could still smoke on an airplane when these cuts were recorded. Listen to the quiet moments of track D-4 and hear one of the first PZM microphones rattle against the wall as it hung around a nail. What about the limiter on that old boom box as it wont allow the signal to continue recording on track C-6? Good thing they didnt have any money because everything would have sounded like shit! Some people say I should be shot for writing about this music. I met them in Malaysia when I was selling Asmat wood carvings from Irian Jaya. They nicknamed me Mikey which referred to Michael Rockefeller who had his interest in Asmat art cut short by angry tribal leaders. One of them told me years ago that were ALL Sun City Girls. Was he modest or was he lying? I dont know how many homosexuals ARE in the book of Revelations but I DO KNOW that the bible is always lying. And its fairly well documented that Satanists launder money to cover up your right to live. Just remember: Bleach has feelings, too!" -- Harold Wayne.

"Fifth reissue in the Cloaven Cassettes series by Sun City Girls. Both cassettes were released in 1987. About Fruit of the Womb: Recorded 1984-85 between the first and second Sun City Girls LPs in mono. The performances on this tape are superb. Near Eastern instrumentals, extended improvisation, ostracized jazz plus impossible versions of Sun City Girls standards. Like the other titles in this series, some tracks from the original tape releases have been removed for the LP versions and some unreleased tracks are included, too. About Polite Deception: Side one is a continuation of the previous tape listed (Fruit Of The Womb). And side two was described by an Albanian diplomat as: An industrial Mesopotamian environmental piece followed by Egyptian trance jazz. Of course, we all know that this description is false. Recordings are from 1984-1985. Limited edition of 950 copies in ultra thick gatefold sleeve with lots of pictures from the mid-80s.

Label: Eclipse
Country: USA
Price: $13.50
"Document of a big band made up of the entire lineups of Pelt and Rake (+ additional miscellaneous players) that gigged several times in 1996 and 1997. Whether clearing the room at the Fredericksburg Centre for the Arts or emptying the hall at the Black Cat, the band always kicked it with uncompromising true love and substantial Oastem! vibe. The long improvisations performed varied wildly from show to show, often starting with a bang and slowly expanding into open space where the interesting little details emerged. This LP is an extract from the center of a two hour performance recorded in April 1997 at Tommys in Richmond. The players are: Mike Gangloff (guitar, shenai, electronics), Jack Rose (lap steel), Patrick Best (guitar, bass resonator, conga), ~SKB (bass and percussion), V2G2 (nylon string guitar, percussion, shenai and voice), Planet C (moog, sax, percussion), Mick (dumbek and dijembe), Beth Jones (dijembe), and ???
