Artist: CHAPMAN, MICHAEL
Title: The Resurrection And Revenge Of The Clayton Peacock
Format: LP
Label: Ecstatic Peace
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Michael Chapman, one of the finest acoustic guitar innovators borne of the late 70s UK folk scene, was in Philadelphia early 2010, paying tribute to his good friend, the late Jack Rose, a mighty six-string alchemist in his own right, and a youngster wholly inspired by Chapmans critical recordings. While sharing in the good light of friendship backstage, we asked Michael if hed ever recorded an LP of purely improvised guitar music. It seemed feasible, as the current state of acoustic guitar exploration was in equal measures inspired by both composition and improvisation. Chapman, along with Bert Jansch, John Renbourn, John Fahey et al, was a significant and historical informant for this young set. But he claimed to have never even entertained the notion of an LP of exclusively improvised playing. Anyone who has had the good fortune to hear Michael just take off in the middle of his songs and simply shred into zones of in-and-out-of-the-chakras stratosphere knows that such an idea could only be wildly welcomed. As it were, Michael got in touch within a week or so and said he was game, and here it is, The Resurrection And Revenge Of The Clayton Peacock, two sides of unbroken, idiosyncratic guitar improvisation that moves from neck-tapping harmonics into effects pedal kosmische into distinctly strange tone huzz. An odd and lovely, momentous session. Limited edition of 500 copies, each numbered with silver ink." -Ecstatic Peace.

Artist: DE WYS, MARGARET
Title: I Oh
Format: CD
Label: Ecstatic Peace
Country: USA
Price: $14.50
"Margaret De Wys is a composer living and teaching in the Hudson Valley region of New York. She has collaborated with artists Joan Jonas, Charlie Ahearn, Glenn Branca, Maryanne Amacher, Rudolf Grey, and Kiki Smith. With Branca she was a founding member of the legendary NYC no-wave group Theoretical Girls." - EP. "This composition developed as a music-centered response to my personal work with liminal states of consciousness that arose in a non-art context generally characterized as healing. Based on casual recordings of my own voice that I made during actual sessions, my soundtrack focuses on sequences of highly stimulated vocalization (excited, ecstatic, etc.), particularly those that seem to embody a unique and intense experience of knowing, something like a direct encounter with vitality. The effects: sound, vision and emotion in the rawest possible state. Truth shot through me like a whistle." - Margaret De Wys.

Artist: FLAHERTY, PAUL & BILL NACE
Title: An Airless Field
Format: LP
Label: Ecstatic Peace
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"Paul Flaherty remains one of North Americas most breath-taking free-sax wonders. With white flowing beard and twinkled eye he can either blow solo, levitating all real estate to a higher key of thought, or collaborate with anyone lucky enough to travel his spaceway of experience. Radical guitarist Bill Nace has been connecting with Flaherty for a number of years now. Nace is the secret weapon of the New England underground free scene and has been charming basement dwellers searching for portals to new noise dimensions with his prepared guitar administration in accordance with both Chris Corsano in the legendary Vampire Belt and with Thurston Moore in the magic wildstyle of Northampton Wools. Here, in duo with the master Flaherty, he drops and sails and the two men create journeys both frightening and enlightening. A strange and beautiful session." -Ecstatic Peace.

Artist: FOOLE, DREDD
Title: A Long, Losing Battle with Eloquence and Intimance
Format: LP
Label: Ecstatic Peace
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"7 songs of studio-recorded solo Dredd Foole on vocals and acoustic guitar, in a totally different vein than the last Dredd Foole & the Din record with Pelt & Thurston Moore ( The Whys of Fire )." "For years and years (maybe about 17 or so), people have been pleading with Dan Ireton to record an album of his songs, as they are here, "mostly in one take". That has, almost unbelievably at this point, finally been taken care of. Not necessarily "new" or particuarly "weird", this is unquestionably (for lack of better terminology), "American". And when was the last time you could admit to that? In front of a crackling fire, it could perhaps sound good enough to melt into the floor, but even those illuminated by mere fluorescence will find pure captivation. Words, voice, guitar, culturally-informed emotional expression. Printed inner sleeve with lyrics, just like the old days. Great Kim Gordon cover." - FE.

Artist: FOOLE, DREDD & THE DIN
Title: The Whys of Fire
Format: CD
Label: Ecstatic Peace
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"Thurston Moore and Pelt in Dredd Fooles Din this time around (past Din members include Mission of Burma & the Volcano Suns). Mastered by Jim ORourke. Quite handsome Acutal-tribute cover art. The Whys of Fire: The idea evolved a couple years ago. Dredd was playing a lot again, after his move to Vermont, and it seemed like the time to get some of his new instant compositional gambits onto tape. It so happened that Pelt were going to be coming to town pretty soon. That seemed like a good connection. Chris and Thurston both played with Dredd already in various action units, so that made sense. Hell, it all made sense. In the way that things can on hot, buggy nights in a swamp, when theres plenty of cold beer and enough electricity to go around." - Ecstatic Yod. Features Dredd Foole (voice), Patrick Best (prepared amplified acoustic guitar), Mike Gangloff (esraj, tanpura), Jack Rose (prepared electric guitar), Chris Corsano (drums, percussion) and Thurston Moore (electric guitar).

Artist: HAT CITY INTUITIVE
Title: A Ticket For Decay!
Format: LP
Label: Ecstatic Peace
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Hat City Intuitive have long been the mainstays of the Danbury, Connecticut free improvisation scene and, as such, are regal. Yet this crown of creative impulse and desire does not cloud their intention of celebrating the NEW. When they gather, and whoever they may invite into their high flying midst, the vibrations are a fresh fire and are wholly positive, forsaking the droll techniques of free jazz blather, and licking the under shine of night stars howling light into the black. This session has most recent member Gene Moore (guitar/reeds) showing up with his kid bro Thurston, who plugs into the nearest amp and is only too happy to just GO, as TM is a long-time fascinant of the Hat City Intuitive, having grown up in the same Nutmeg State environs just 30 some years prior. Compiled from hours and hours and hours of basement mind/spirit autumnal wine-soaked pot-smoked camaraderie, this recording is where the dirt meets the concrete and winks up to the forever sky." -Ecstatic Peace

Artist: HORSEBLADDER
Title: Not, Ill Not
Format: LP
Label: Ecstatic Peace
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Not Ill Not is the debut LP from Horsebladder aka Elaine Kahn, a poet & musician currently living in Northampton, Massachusetts. Kahn uses minimalist loops & incantation to create primitive pop songs for the second body. Vocals range from ethereal to ragged, music is a corporeal daydream of night sweats & sad sex, laced with preconscious allusions to Dome, Two Daughters & Catullus. Previous releases on Yod Tapes & Night People. This recording will spook you into a third-floor poet mind devising schematics for basement loveletter. The sounds of a heart beating through raw chambers of reverb and rhythm. Engrossing, exquisite and holistically haunting. 300 copies." -Ecstatic Peace

Artist: HUNTING RITUALS
Title: Brooding Forest
Format: LP
Label: Ecstatic Peace
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Hunting Rituals is the moniker of Scott Johnson (also Scott Cloud, Thoughts On Air) which was inspired from many impromptu collaborations with other weirdo musicians within the city limits of Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. Brooding Forest was the first recording to feature a second member, a fellow collaborator Jeremiah Buchan from Bottom Feeder who was also a main influence on the overall ritual sound process. This recording fuses Scotts focus of feral improv with Jeremys premeditated landscapes of organic creep sound. Brooding Forest was recorded in Sonic Unyons basement, originally released as a cassette on Myiasis Tapes. This is the true underground shadow music of Ontario improv/drone/outsider accidentalia. Startling and hypnotic. Limited pressing." -Ecstatic Peace

Artist: HUSH HARBORS
Title: Yankee Reality
Format: CD
Label: Ecstatic Peace
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"Yankee Reality. What does it mean? Does it portend that there is some unique, other plain of existence for northerners and/or city folk? Something perhaps alien to, well, everybody else? Virginia cum citizen of London/rambling man Keith Wood knows all about it. Several years ago, he relocated to the city of crumpets and tea, where he, among other things, secured a gig playing guitar for notoriously intense death folk legends Current 93. In the midst of all this excitement, he has managed to write and record a brand new Hush Arbors album, his second for Ecstatic Peace!, and its his finest to date. With a full band in tow -- multi instrumentalist Leon Dufficy, bassist Jason Ajemian, and drummer Ryan Sawyer -- and none other than J Mascis in the producers chair, Yankee Reality continues Woods winning streak while introducing an embarrassment of riches in the way of surprises and curveballs along the way. Yankee Reality is a credit to Keith Woods vast talents as a songwriter and performer, but also, stands as a shining example of his breadth of focus and versatility. How many fools out there love Merle Haggard, The Dead and Dinosaur, Jr equally? I know one." - James Jackson Toth, Nashville, TN, August 2009

Artist: ISLAJA
Title: Blaze Mountain Recordings
Format: CD
Label: Ecstatic Peace
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"Islaja is Merja Kokkonen, a visual artist and musician from Helsinki, Finland. Shes been releasing records on Finnish label Fonal since 2004. The first one, Meritie, introduced her lovely sense of musical wonder to the world and garnered excited praise from the more astute ears at The Wire (UK) and Dusted Magazine (USA). The 2nd release Palaa Aurinkoon was equally boss and brought Islaja to North America with compatriot Finnish folk experimentalists Lau Nau and Kuupuu where she mesmerized audiences with a captivating minimalism of sweet singing and small toy and hand-made instruments played by herself and companion Jukka Raisanen. In 2007, she released her third album Ulual Yyy which expanded her sound into further psychedelic paths. Since then Islaja has played numerous large festivals including Eurosonic, Sonar and the 2006 All Tomorrows Parties/Nightmare Before Christmas curated by Thurston Moore. Animal Collective invited Islaja to play a two week support tour with them in Europe. Blaze Mountain Recordings is a live document, all music and words by Merja and played by Merja and Jukka. Its the perfect portal to enter the living world of Islajas music/art spirit with a unity of traditional Finnish forest mystery and a radical song universe." -Ecstatic Peace

Artist: KEFFER, LESLIE
Title: Feels Like Frenching
Format: LP
Label: Ecstatic Peace
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"When Leslie Keffer lived in Athens, Ohio she was asked about the noise scene there. Youre looking at it, she responded. Indeed. Leslie is one of the more fascinating proponents of homegrown Middle American noise music. A single girl drawn to the more ravaged and magical aspects of noise as source music, art and lifestyle. She has since moved to Nashville where she has been developing and progressing her personal take on what is basically a highly marginal genre of music. Leslies sound has been heard on various cassette labels (Rampart, Gameboy, I Just Live Here, Epicene, Cherried-out Merch) and most recently, her own imprint, Action Claw. She has issued a number of hand-made CDRs with her own touch of knitted fabric pouches. She has two tracks on the 2CD Tarantula Hill Benefit, one with Baltimores Nautical Almanac who have been championing Leslies work for years now. We are only too happy to release this premier full-length LP of Leslies demonstrating where shes been and where shes going." - Ecstatic Peace

Artist: KREFTING, MATT
Title: I Couldnt Love You More
Format: CD
Label: Ecstatic Peace
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"My career in music is about to enter its 13th year. Lucky 13! Ive performed in at least 15 groups (probably more on the order of 20 if you count guest spots) over the years, the most prominent being the long-running quiet music combo Son of Earth and the short-lived-but-muchhyped Believers. Historically more of an experimental man, the Believers project showcased my always right-below-the-surface interest and passion for all things rock, and so, a couple of years after the demise of that group, I was approached by Ecstatic Peace, who asked me to produce a solo record. For the better part of a year I conceptualized, recruited, and eventually came up with I Couldnt Love You More. An early attempt to marry electronics, field recordings, and song was scrapped in favor of the personal and perhaps obvious choice of producing a covers record. It was the perfect idea, the realization of a dream. Years of singing in the shower and on long car trips had given way to the stuff of fantasy. Why stick to what you know when you can reach for what youve always desired? I asked friends to help with the realization. John Moloney, Phil Franklin, Ron Schneiderman, and Rob Thomas (all of Sunburned Hand of the Man), Ive known for years. Same with J Mascis. Old friends John Shaw (who Ive done more music with than anyone) and Lynn Meyers provide some vocals here and there, as does my wife, Jamie Jo Oltmans. The Wild Card here is John Townsend. Andrew Kesin of Ecstatic Peace introduced me to him, and he was a jack-of-all-trades. He plays on most of the tracks, sometimes exclusively, and co-produced. I chose songs from all over the map, from Rick Danko to John Martyn to the great Bill Fay. Not exactly lightweights, and quite intimidating when their full historical weight is taken into account. However, I attacked each piece with the intensity of one who truly loves these songs. I didnt concern myself with being overly arty or inventive in my interpretations (there are no truly radical re-workings of anything here), instead allowing my own emotional investment in the material to guide me and inform the other players. These are songs of love and longing. The themes are eternal. Its an honor to have had the chance to play them. Enjoy the music." -- Matt Krefting, December 2008

Artist: LITTLE CLAW
Title: Human Taste
Format: CD
Label: Ecstatic Peace
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"Little Claw was born in Detroit, Michigan during the Great Eastern Seaboard blackout of 2003. Having nothing to do, nowhere to go, Heath Heemsbergen and Kilynn Lunsford began playing their acoustic guitars and singing into the darkness. An auspicious beginning to be sure. Even now, Little Claw are still strumming and screaming into the void. Formed originally with Jamie Easter from the Piranhas on drums, the band played a string of shows, starting with their debut performance with legendary Ohio art-punks the Bizarros, which then led to the recording of the first Little Claw LP with Warn Defever (His Name Is Alive) The album was released by Ypsilanti records in 2005. Jamie left the band in the summer of 2005 and after one show as a duo, Hendrik Deherder joined up on the drums. A second LP was recorded with Matthew Smith (Outrageous Cherry) in his Hamtramck living room mid-2006 and was subsequently released by Thurston Moores Ecstatic Peace label in 2007. Later that year, there was a release of a split 7" single with Michael Yonkers on X! records. Little Claws move from the urban nightmare of Detroit to the more subtle cloudy terrors of Portland, Oregon prompted some more augmentations to the line-up: Adam Svenson (of Seattle improv band Du Hexen Hase) took over the caveman beat on the drums, freeing up Henrik to bang the synth and add additional percussion. On the road and on recordings, the Little Claw sound is graced by the touch of Toledo native, Damon Sturdivant (Puffy Areolas, Tyvek) on additional percussion and synth." "But what do they sound like anyway? They sounded like the greatest godammned fucking band on the planet the time we saw em. Two minimalist drummers, a guitar dude with a nice underhook rhythm rip and a girl with a badass no wave slather tongue tearing hell out of her slide guitar given half the chance. And not all hellbent rage either -- some nice licorice melt drizzle crud groove too. Fuckin awesome." -Thurston Moore

Artist: LONG DISTANCE POISON
Title: Gamma Graves
Format: Cass
Label: Ecstatic Peace
Country: USA
Price: $9.00
"Hand-numbered limited edition of 100 copies. "Long Distance Poison present an irresistible concoction of convergent psychedelic and analog electronic energies, everything from a love of nature, and Rothko-like visual aesthetics, to musical influences like Sky Records, John Carpenter soundtracks, minimalism, and a less-hyper Mother Mallard or post-Phaedra Tangerine Dream. Theyve released some excellent tapes, on Life Like, Cryptic Carousel, and Digitalis Limited, releases that capitalize on the bands strength in long-form electronic composition with a wealth of improvisational wiggle-room. Theres a ground concept for each section of each piece, but that merely serves as a taking-off point for LDPs pulsating extrapolations, typically about 30 minutes in length total, or longer. Theyve been wowing local Brooklyn audiences for some time now, and part of the fun of their shows is the opportunity to experience the band finding their way in the moment, watching the clay of their ideas take on form and urgency as they go." -Wm. Berger, host of "My Castle of Quiet" on WFMU

Artist: LUBELSKI, SAMARA
Title: Future Slip
Format: LP
Label: Ecstatic Peace
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"LP version with glossy insert. Samara Lubelskis 5th solo LP Future Slip serves up a gorgeous and friendly collection of bittersweet melodies, sinister basslines, gestural Polaroid lyrics, and spot-on drumming garnished with sprigs of fuzz, paired with a guitar Riesling. It is a record of knowledge and innocence, of truth and fairytale, of wonder and clarity. Envision France Gall performing the songs of Sterling Morrison and Mo Tucker with Ralph Molina on drums. The show is at a loft across Bowery from CBGBs and the only person in the audience at soundcheck is Jandek, cross-legged in the middle of the floor. Produced by Thurston Moore. And here is the result: Future Slip is a worldly record, a record which offers a taste of the new dimension but warns of guru bummers. To a sunny day it adds the shadows which allow the perception of depth. On a rainy day it offers a selection of cakes. Anyone who does not dig this record deserves our pity, as they know nothing about the joy or sadness of life." -Ecstatic Peace

Artist: MAGIC MARKERS
Title: I Trust My Guitar, etc.
Format: LP
Label: Ecstatic Peace
Country: USA
Price: $16.50
"Magik Markers have delivered nothing but total weird confusion since their nascent days as Hartford, CT.s only real rock n roll animal. Through sporadic touring and constant relocation theyve developed into one of USAs most harrowing and mesmerizing live noise units since mid-period Germs. This LP captures an early studio session which is spectacularly failed, their Forming if you will, and hardly references what theyve been throwing down live these days. Dense-pack mixed by drummer Pete Nolan, with gut-spill guitar and barely audible vocals by lyrical wizardess Elise Ambrogio and Tiffany-with-a-switchblade rhythm guitar death from Leah Quimby, it still has an essence of madness that will creepy crawl its way into your nervous system. Deluxe full colour gatefold sleeve w/ Slow Toe Publications poetry booklet featuring Byron Coley, Matthew Wascovich and T. Moore, bumpersticker and full sized insert."

Artist: MAGIK MARKERS
Title: Boss
Format: CD
Label: Ecstatic Peace
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"When confronted with an example of magnificence in nature, such as a waterfall, Jane Goodall reported that the chimpanzees she observed were captivated, as if in awe of the beauty of the world. On BOSS, the Magik Markers have tried to capture the chimps awe. A formality and restraint the Markers have never exerted on their previously recorded material is present on BOSS. Now the Markers are Jainists, with their mouths masked so as to not inhale even one tiny insect, here pursuing the killer gentle with a vengeance. Recorded in the cavernous dark of Echo Canyon West, with producer Lee Ranaldo working the boards like a diviner, BOSS documents the Markers with a previously unheard fidelity and orchestration. Idiosyncratic song structure and melodies interspersed with a destructive drum stomp are reminiscent of the early electrified blues of Junior Kimbrough, or the black hole rhythms of Kousokuya. Mixing a gentle vulnerability with a winded egomania, the Markers have always had a musical tunnel vision; BOSS is that vision made manifest. The tug of war the Markers enact, the way they are fully prepared to start yanking their world apart as they find themselves losing their place in, makes moot possibilities of greatness or mediocrity. It makes them unapologetic soothsayers with their ears pressed to the ground, waiting for footsteps. With Peter Nolan, we finally hear what Lou Reed would have sounded like had he sallied with the drums instead of getting seduced by the easy praise of front man status. Like Rashid Ali squeezed into the Teutonic leather pants of Faust, Nolan drums like there are hell hounds at his heels but he just cant be bothered. Here both laconic and frenzied, Nolans drumming arms reach out like an octopus: tickling the ivories, humming the organ and blasting taps on some kind of endtime trumpet. As a pianist, Nolan reminds us that the piano is a percussive, beating out the whoomp of some old war dance, a bare foot-fall rhythm of fighters to battle and the heavy hands of a whiskey burlesque in the afternoon. Nolan is easy to underestimate, but finally, here is high fidelity record of the strange soul of one of Americas most natural and quizzical musical minds." -Ecstatic Peace

Artist: MENSTRUATION SISTERS
Title: Samantha (My Wack Panther)
Format: LP
Label: Ecstatic Peace
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Unlike anything book or animal, the Menstruation Sisters destroy wholly" -- Thurston Moore, Sonic Youth. "Menstruation Sisters hail from Sydney, Australia. Basically a duo comprised of wildboy poet ululationist and guitar strangler Nick Kamiussis (aka Rizili aka Riz) and OZ wonderkid Oren Ambarchi (Sunn 0))), Burial Chamber, Grave Temple, John Zorn etc etc), and sometimes aided by Brendan Walls and others. Their first LP, Ma, was in an edition of 100 copies, all of which had razor blades, balloons and hypodermic needles applied to one side. As an objet dart it became a highly desirable item for noise believers (and was recently reissued -- sans appliques -- by No Fun Productions). Every once in a while an LP drops out of nowhere only to further confuse whomever is fortunate enough to grip it. 2005 saw the Holy Africa 7" on White Denim, in 2001 the infamous Goog LP on Saucerlike, in 1999 the Dead At Slugs LP on Menlo Park and in 1998 the Triple Bogey On A Ma Par Hole 3x7". All of these are essential documents of one of the most bizarre, genuinely inspired free time outfits working the avant-mind body love/noise worship axis today. This newest LP has been patiently waiting to be released for the last few years, initially a multi-label project instigated by Menlo Park and now fully realized by Ecstatic Peace. Long a champion of Menstruation Sisters after witnessing an out-of-nowhere set at NYCs legendary lost underground experimental oasis The Cooler in the late 90s, Thurston Moore invited the Sisters to open for Sonic Youth in Sydney shortly thereafter and, as inspired and weird as the NYC set was, the Sonic Youth gig was perhaps one of the most astounding question marks of music the seasoned Moore had ever experienced. So we present you Samantha (My Wack Panther) -- a new and beautiful peek into the edge of musical menstruation." -Ecstatic Peace

Title: Plastic Flowers
Format: LP
Label: Ecstatic Peace
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"George Moore lives in Connecticut. He is the 20 year old son of Ecstatic Peace recording artist Gene Moore. Regardless of these obvious bloodline connections George Moores musical world should, would and could easily creep into the living underground on its own mystic merits. He recorded these instrumental pieces at some point in early 2001 and issued them privately in an edition smaller than Albinis dick. The music therein is an amalgamation of spurious signals wholly independent though readings and mis-readings of John Fahey, Whitehouse and Jackie-O Motherfucker are in probable detection. The basement aura of this session will appeal to anyone even slightly aroused by the aforementioned troika. Ecstatic Peace will continue to release artifacts from the Moore boys and their Connecticut Nutmeg State of Mind environmental joob." - Ecstatic Peace.

"After releasing the first Mouthus LP years back, Ecstatic Peace returns to unleash another beast by this always amazing duo. Brian Sullivan (gtr/vox) and Nate Nelson (perc) connect here with a focused, thematic hayride through long tone static and fried mind amp terror. Anyone following the arc and molten flow of Mouthus last few LPs and CDs (on Our Mouth, Troubleman Unlimited, Olde English Spelling Bee, Music Fellowship, Important, Three Lobed, Weird Forest and the exemplary Saw A Halo on Load) will be surely intrigued by Divisionals as it is Mouthus at their sweetest. Almost. Just when youre drifting through the electric skies you find the Earth reaching into your soul pulling you back to a primordial foreverness. A charming action." -Ecstatic Peace

"MV Carbon is a Brooklyn-based musician/artist with a completely unconventional and wildly conceptual approach to music-making and performance. She uses fragmented field recordings, cello, guitar, analog synthesizers, samplers, drum machines, tape manipulations, and photosensitive oscillators to create eerie and weirdly unsettling compositions. Carbon has collaborated with a whos-who of avant-garde contemporanea: Aki Onda, Tony Conrad, Evan Parker, John Wiese, C Spencer Yeh, Twig Harper, Bill Nace, John Edwards, Culver (Skullflower), Okkyung Lee, Smegma and a host of others. She has performed internationally for years in galleries, rock clubs, museums, attics, basements, gardens, etc. With her band Metalux she has released music on some of the most interesting labels of the last ten years: 5RC, Load, Hanson, Veglia, No Fun, and Nihilist. Her work with the band Bride Of No No has two releases out on Atavistic. Her solo cassette tape, The Shaft, was released on Period Tapes in July 2011. Carbon is also a painter and installation artist whose artwork has been exhibited at a number of U.S. galleries. Dislodged Perihelion utilizes vintage drum machines and synths, guitar loops, tape machines, voice, and cello.

"The Notekillers were a Philadelphia based band between the years of 1977 ­ 1981. They were a nowave guitar/drums, instrumental band that had one amazing self released 7" in 1978, "The Zipper" b/w "Clock Wise". They played in NYC a couple of times, most memorably opening for Glen Branca, which is how they came to the attention of Ecstatic Peace. A few years back, Sonic Youths / Ecstatic Peaces Thurston Moore was asked to make a fantasy mix tape for Mojo magazine. He included the song "The Zipper", saying, "It was one of those records that resonated fully with all of us at the time - a genuine hybrid of radical approach (ayler/pistols!)" This rock based group from the age of punk rock and disco featured talented musicians that had two main goals. The first was to experiment; to push their combined abilities to uncommon results. The second was that their efforts should be able to follow any record on their turntable, whether it be reggae, rock, acoustic or punk and the influences would be evident while maintaining their own driving rock sound. This new release from Ecstatic Peace includes the song that started it all, "The Zipper" and its B-Side, "Clock Wise", the never released single, "Run Dont Stop" b/w "Juggernauts" and eleven tracks taken from 2-track reels, dusty cassettes and an actual 8-track cartridge." - Ecstatic Peace.

Needless to say we were buh-lown away by the manic improv hepness and immediately emailed the dude to see if we could slam some POOR SCHOOL magic onto black plastik. And unto Ecstatic Peace was delivered The Holy Master. Ramirez and Olson go waay back when the two of them jammed together in the nascent Michigan underground psychedelic troupe Universal Indians. Ramirez took off to Missoula, Montana to investigate micro-brews and mountain air and help put together the awesome Ex-Cocaine. Hes still there.

Artist: RELIGIOUS KNIVES
Title: The Door
Format: CD
Label: Ecstatic Peace
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
""Maya Miller and Michael Bernstein met in New York a decade ago, and began making music together as half of strum und drone quartet Double Leopards a few years after that. Religious Knives came later still, away from the road and the rehearsal space, borne and nurtured in cramped apartments throughout Kings County. Beginning in 2005, the pair released a string of CD-Rs and cassettes, both on their own Heavy Tapes imprint and through the labels of kindred spirits. Steadily moving away from the psychedelic tone baths and modern industrial scrape for which the Leopards had become known, Religious Knives coursed through minimal synth oscillations and spare Kraut repetition. Mouthus Nate Nelson joined the pair in 2006, lending a powerful presence behind the drums that shaped Religious Knives rudimentary jams into rough-hewn, long-form paeans to tar-blackened bummer psych. Soon after that, old friend Todd Cavallo completed the quartet on bass, adding a sturdy low-end and dubwise groove that lifted Religious Knives from cellar murk to black cloud puffs of bone-deep alarm. An active four-piece for a little more than a year now, Religious Knives have presided over a pair of 12"s, a couple of collections of out of print singles and long gone burns, and one full-length. All throughout, these four have traced a path away from the clamor they once knew, bathing slight guitars, interlocking vocals, and solemn bass lines in reedy organs and recalcitrant modular synths. The seemingly tin-eared would call it noise, but in these eight hands, such a set plays as anything but, instead a (cough) syrupy stroll in search of the ghosts of rocks classicist past. With The Door, Religious Knives have not only found those bygone days, but broken them apart. There are bookmarks to be found here, pages creased in well-worn chapters. But make no mistake -- theirs is a sound tied to the here and now, a summer record for those dread days when the heat holds low and skin sticks to cheap car seats and old patio furniture. These six songs are brighter, sharper than anything that has come before, locking in tight on jugular rhythms. Its the score for disappearing neighborhoods and crumbling buildings, a hope of holding onto the past as those around us move fast to forget it. It is scent as sound, the stench of smog and sickly smoke spiraling towards the sky. It is Brooklyn, July of 2008. The sun has left us in the East, disappearing somewhere behind Jersey, leaving our borough to find the pulse of another night deep with the citys streets." -Ecstatic Peace

Country: USA
Price: $12.50
Edition of 500. "Ohio has been rampant on the Ecstatic Peace play lists lately with the release of a long player earlier this year by Leslie Keffer and a forthcoming split LP by Emeralds and Tusco Terror. Like Keffer, whos moved to Nashville (to be closer to Be Your Own Pet), 16 Bitch Pile-Up and Mike Shiflet are both ex-pats of Ohio. 16 Bitch to California and Shiflet to some weird small town in Japan. Mike Shiflet weve known for years as he has produced some of the more interesting tapes and whatnot of Midwestern out-ness from his Gameboy label and from his legendary duo tour with Burning Star Core/C. Spencer Yeh of a few years back. Like the amazing beard he has sported since childhood, his music is a free-fall of acoustic wonder. He is also the cat responsible for turning on most of the world to the radical charms of three girls from Ohio wickedly named 16 Bitch Pile-Up. With a name like that you may have expected something just kinda funny but what made itself imminently obvious was that 16 Bitch was really and extremely into producing a wholly personal thrombosis of noise improvisation. Crystallized to the trio of Sarah Bernat, Sarah Cathers and Shannon Walter, this trio has become one of the most consistently exciting live experiences of the last five years. These recordings by both artists were done when both were still residents of Ohio and reflect that time and space right before each others exodus. They are raw and righteous and ready for you to take a bite." - Ecstatic Peace.

"Bass, drum and guitars meshed together with a synthetic twine envisioned in future think tanks. Literally the sound of human progress darkened with a profound fidelity so loud the dark matter of the universe quivers in a deadly orgasm. Guitar, bass and drums reconfigured for a new purpose. This is the bands sixth album and takes the notch so much higher than previous efforts in terms of songwriting and production. With Andrew W.K. as a producer, some of the caustic curtains that swathed past albums have been parted to reveal a coldly pulsing artificial heart. And the beat of this heart sounds off in an alien tongue of bass and drums. Guitars descend like unforgiving sheets of napalm from the smoldering skyline. Songs pop out of this miasma that tick off icy coolness with piano and vocal stylings. Indeed, hot and cool. To accentuate the difference this album has versus previous Sightings records, a Scott Walker cover is included. This is a rock album, but a rock for times coming, a sound of future days. Break the chains from the days of past, listen to Sightings and evolve. Limited edition beautiful high gloss gatefold LP." - Load.

While each release has explored a psychedelic-folk wonderland, this album is far and away one of the most concisely focused and downright catchy recordings in the WW oeuvre. Co-arranger and vocalist JESSICA TOTH may be the records secret weapon. While perhaps best known for her role as lead vocalist and occasional guitarist in Wooden Wand & the Vanishing Voice, on James and The Quiet she emerges as the perfect foil to Toths inimitable artistic voice. Together with LEE RANALDO, Jessica wrote and fine-tuned most of the albums exquisite harmony vocals and piano lines.
