Artist: AXOLOTL
Title: Chemical Theater
Format: LP
Label: Gipsy Sphinx
Country: Belgium
Price: $23.00
"Its the point all earlier Axolotl releases have been aiming for, and achieved fleetingly, stretched out to fill 2 long tracks that satisfy my deep-soak mind like not much else since Wolfgang Voigt disappeared a few years back. But even better, wilder, warmer, more human - like the best ecstatic music, it drags you in and takes you there, but theres the option some days of being able to stand back and admire how its feet are mired in the dirty floor crash pad struggle to pay the rent and get laid and get the portastudio to work properly. Maybe if Wolfgang had wandered not into Köln club scene oblivion, but instead into the German forest his Gas records alluded to, spent a few months eating acorns and hunkering down on a bunch of strange strings, refracting the results through a primitive stack of looping equipment, real boombox tape-saturation mindset, he might have been hitting some similar spots. The Voigt things pertinent, as I know Karls a fan, and Ive been smitten too. Top of my head, Id say M:i:5s ⿿mikrofon⿝, Gass ⿿Pop⿝ and Alls ⿿Alltag⿝ are his apexes, but a few years ago the guy seemed to be effortlessly redefining music with almost every one of his many many releases. And if you can keep up with the Axolotl release schedule, you may be wondering if Karl isnt capable of working at the same level of easy invention. Different scene, but same balance between mundanity and quest for oblivion, same grace and speed of movement." - Neil Campbell. "Limited to 525 hand-numbered copies on high quality 180g vinyl with paste-on art, big insert, resealable plastic sleeve."

Artist: BEAR BONES LAY LOW
Title: Djid Hums
Format: LP
Label: Gipsy Sphinx
Country: Belgium
Price: $21.00
"Its the debut LP of Bear Bones Lay Low, the psych noise power drone project of Ernesto González, an 18 year old Venezuelan kid who moved to Belgium with his family three years ago. Thick layers of Hototogisu-like guitar drones interfere with endless tape loops and warm washes of analogue jungle color tone to work up to an overwhelming fuzz guitar climax, leaving listeners helpless, ecstatic, puzzled and bemused. Ernesto has been making music for three years now, has various solo as well as collaboration projects going on, has released a slew of amazing selfmade cdrs and has recently also become a full time member of Belgiums best: freefolk/krautrock outfit Silvester Anfang, whove got an LP coming out on Eclipse later this month. A promising new star in the psych drone skies." -Gipsy Sphinx.

Artist: VANISHING VOICE
Title: Nordic Visions
Format: LP
Label: Gipsy Sphinx
Country: Belgium
Price: $18.00
"While Wooden Wand and Satya Sai jammed with the Sky High Band in beautiful California, the Vanishing Voice dug in deep in the frozen northeast. Snowed in with utopian texts and mounting paranoia, Steven the Harvester, Heidi White Diamond Diehl, and Pete Wolfy Nolan joined Nonhorse in an abandoned textile factory, boiling out these ballads of suspended disbelief and hope for the better world." - Vanishing Voice. Limited to 525 copies.

Artist: YOUNGS, RICHARD
Title: Summer Wanderer
Format: LP
Label: Gipsy Sphinx
Country: Belgium
Price: $21.00
"An acapella record, written, sung and recorded by Richard Youngs in Scotland, September 2004. First only available from Richard as a gift for friends, the album was later released on his No Fans imprint in a micro edition of a couple dozens of cdrs. Now, three years after being recorded, this stunning album sees the light of day on thick, heavyweight vinyl. Think of the ambiance Richard evokes consistently throughout his solo output. Cut off the strings, the drones and all other skillfully arranged overweight and trickle that feeling down to its core essence. The name of Richards gift is Summer Wanderer, its beauty timeless. One-time limited edition of 525 copies pressed on heavy 180g vinyl, housed in thick handnumbered paste-on sleeves." -Gipsy Sphinx. A few more copies of this 2007 release.

Artist: ZAIMPH
Title: Mirage Of The Other
Format: LP
Label: Gipsy Sphinx
Country: Belgium
Price: $20.00
"(Gipsy Sphinxs) third release is a full LP (+/-40min) from Marcia Bassetts solo project Zaïmph. Marcia is well known for her leading role in freefolk/improv groups such as Double Leopards and GHQ, as well as for her groundbreaking work with free guitar/flesh metal duo Hototogisu. With her solo project Zaïmph she starts off from the base these groups laid out and takes things to another level, shredding boundaries between dark noise, drone and psych music. Its deeply meditative yet darkly disturbing and emotionally touching music. The LP, Zaïmphs vinyl debut, is pressed in a one-time edition of 525 copies on 180g vinyl with paste-on artwork on thick black jackets, full color 2-sided art paper insert, resealable plastic sleeve; etc.." - Gipsy Sphinx.
