Artist: BARON, MARC
Title: Carnets
Format: LP
Label: Glistening Examples
Country: USA
Price: $25.00
"Just as 2014s widely lauded Hidden Tapes marked a turn from saxophone improvisation to an embrace of what the Potlatch label referred to as "music for speakers" or, more elegantly, "sound diffusion," Carnets is not only another leap forward, but could easily be considered Marc Barons masterpiece. Carnets is a dynamic interplay of degraded magnetic tape and unsettlingly normal everyday recordings dating back to Barons childhood, showcasing Barons deftness in crafting compositions that leave the listener with more questions than answers. Attempts to pin down his methods are forestalled at every turn by the abstract yet suggestive nature of the pieces. Personal memories become a platform for a series of inscrutable, elegantly arranged compositions. Barons misused tapes carry evocative resonances that linger hauntingly in the mind of the listener, begging to be heard again. This record is the analog debut for Marc Baron, and his hand-constructed audio works sound completely alive on this vinyl pressing mastered by Jason Lescalleet. Each slab of 150-gram vinyl comes in a special black poly-lined dust sleeve inside a 300-gsm white-on-white art board, all lovingly protected by a polyvinyl bag. The front cover bears a striking photograph of a sculpture by French artist Loïc Blairon, something very intimate and personal for Marc Baron. This album is truly something very special." - Glistening Examples.

Artist: BEATTY, ROBERT
Title: Soundtracks For Takeshi Murata
Format: LP
Label: Glistening Examples
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Glistening Examples is proud to announce “Soundtracks for Takeshi Murata” (GLEX-1302), the debut LP/CD of Kentucky-based electronic musician Robert Beatty under his given name. Beatty has long been a presence in the experimental underground as a member of Hair Police and more recently performing and recording solo under his Three Legged Race moniker. He is also well known for his visual art, which encompasses installation, drawing, video, and album artwork design for countless artists including Oneohtrix Point Never, Real Estate, Vybz Kartel, and Peaking Lights. “Soundtracks for Takeshi Murata” collects Beattys compositions for digital video glitch pioneer Takeshi Murata, produced between 2004-2007. Beattys collaborative relationship with Murata has spawned some of his strongest work to date, and Glistening Examples is honored to present this music to the public for the the first time outside of screenings, museums, and galleries. Beatty has performed alongside Muratas work in New York, Chicago, Pittsburgh, and Beijing, where he performed several shows, including at the Ullens Center for Contemporary Art during the 2008 exhibition, "Stray Alchemists." The formative elements of the recent Three Legged Race full length "Persuasive Barrier" (Spectrum Spools, 2013) are apparent in the rubbery pulsations of "Escape Spirit Videoslime" and the ghostly buzzing harmonics of "Untitled (Silver)". Moving between hypnotic minimalism, dense processed atmospheres, and spacious drones, often in the same track, these pieces are the perfect corollary to Muratas fractured and viscous visuals. While the video and audio are linked in the same fluid time space, the soundtracks are presented now as stand-alone works, powerful compositions drawn from the same underlying chaos apparent in Muratas ever-shifting psychedelic environments. This is exciting electronic music that invites the listener to imagine their own videoscapes with or without having viewed Muratas work. “Soundtracks for Takeshi Murata” is published in an LP edition as well as CD format, with new artwork from Murata, design by Beatty, and digital mastering by Jason Lescalleet at Glistening Labs USA. The LP includes a download code and an 11"x17" poster. The CD includes a bonus track not found on the LP. " - Glistening Examples.

Artist: BLOCK, OLIVIA
Title: Dissolution
Format: LP
Label: Glistening Examples
Country: USA
Price: $26.00
“Glistening Examples present Olivia Blocks Dissolution. Olivia Block on the record: "Dissolution is a reflection upon human “webs of significance,” and an investigation into the ways that electronic communications and recording technologies, both past and present, facilitate, complicate and transmute the formation of these webs. Sounds of shortwave radio, municipal broadcast recordings, fragments of found microcassette tapes, tones and instruments dramatize the fragility and failures of communication and language in shaping memory and experience. This album is dedicated to Adam Sonderberg, without whom I could not have completed this project." Personnel: Lesley Swanson - flute; Shaun Flynn - clarinet. Musicians were recorded at Experimental Sound Studio, Chicago IL in January 2015. The session was engineered by Alex Inglesian. Mastered by Jason Lescalleet at Glistening Labs, USA. Dissolution comes housed in a single-pocket jacket with glossy UV coating and black poly-lined inner sleeves with a 12x12" vellum insert. Includes download card.” - Glistening Examples.

Artist: COLLEY, JOE
Title: No Way IN
Format: LP
Label: Glistening Examples
Country: USA
Price: $26.00
“No Way In celebrates Joe Colleys return from a self-imposed hiatus from creating music. Colley was last spotted in 2012 with his Lonely Microphone LP on Italys Senufo Editions. No Way In is a further exploration of Colleys terrain of internal dilemma, mental stress, paranoia, and the pessimistic contemplation of ones fate. This could be a soundtrack to distract one from these thoughts, or it could be the trigger that stirs such things. A stunning black and white cover photo on an uncoated, raw stock outer-sleeve with a black poly-lined inner-sleeve. Composed and recorded from 2014 to 2016 at Spiderbox in Oakland, California. Mastered by Jason Lescalleet at Glistening Labs, USA. Includes a download code. Edition of 400.” - Glistening Examples.

Artist: DILLOWAY & JASON LESCALLEET, AARON
Title: Popeth
Format: LP
Label: Glistening Examples
Country: USA
Price: $26.00
"It is with great pride and pleasure that Glistening Examples announces the newest collaborative efforts of Aaron Dilloway and Jason Lescalleet. Recorded at Tarker Mills in February 2014 then mixed and mastered at Glistening Labs, this 38-minute LP was carved deeply into 150 grams of virgin vinyl via Direct Metal Mastering at GZ Media in the Czech Republic. These records are sheathed in deluxe poly-lined inner sleeves and presented in 300 gsm uncoated reverse board, beautifully adorned by Australian artist and novelist Matthew Revert. "Aaron Dilloway and Jason Lescalleet worked on through the night until the sun came up, and the results are presented on Popeth, their riveting second full-length LP. Few artists exhibit such routinely impressive understanding of loops not as mere repetitions, but as possibilities for tectonic movement. Their music evolves and devolves simultaneously within the use of these patterns. They also realize the possibilities inherent in a host of experimental techniques. Their methods are not simply demonstrative ends, but tools for the exploration of new vistas. The nest, a recurring theme in their collaborative work, is usually a protective place, a place of comfort. But in the Dilloway/Lescalleet milieu the nest is a place where protection and comfort fray and break open. You didnt come here for protection or comfort, though. The first side, Black Mountain, is a chain of glacial swirls. Icy wheels of sound are punctuated by warbling tape and a ghostly voice. Flip the record and youll find Western Nest and Ewch I Gysgu, Popeth, two tracks which push the idea of simplistic structure to the limits of its vitally complicated ends. This is the sound of looking at a spiral staircase, or a clothesline, or a power line, or the center line on the highway. Its the result of deeply electric consciousness. There is a gap in the assembly, a terrible and magnificent peace, a true taste of the passage of time, a measure of the hours and their shifting conditions. Its their most perfectly realized report yet. The album is a statement of confidence, an assertion of purpose with the assured possibility of purposelessness." -Matt Krefting, Holyoke, MA 2014.

SOLD OUT

Artist: LESCALLEET, JASON
Title: Pilgrim
Format: Picture Disc LP/CD
Label: Glistening Examples
Country: USA
Price: $36.00
"An audio documentation of this electronics-and-tape artists coming to terms with the death of his father. The LP documents a performance JASON LESCALEET gave after discovering his father had terminal cancer; its floor-rattling flux of abrasive, low tones invokes the purr of a Chevys engine Lescalleets father discusses in a letter reproduced on the record jacket. A snippet of the final conversation he had with his father is buried in a heat-haze of tape hiss and air conditioner hum. The CD further extrapolates on Lescalleets fathers email; its 74 minutes move from dreamlike bell tones, through abraded, metallic hum, escalating into fierce, brutalizing waves of noise which then cut to a recording of Lescalleets daughter singing the Irish folk song "Molly Malone" at her grandfathers request. The book in which the CD is mounted has plenty more text and images. If you arent staggered by The Pilgrim, theres something wrong with you."

Artist: SHAKHNES, GRISHA
Title: leave/trace
Format: LP
Label: Glistening Examples
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Glistening Examples is proud to present “leave/trace," the vinyl debut of Grisha Shakhnes. Formerly operating under the name of Mites, Shakhnes has been recording and performing in Tel Avi, Israel since 2008. His work has been issued both privately in limited handmade CD-R editions, and internationally though Alamut Records (Jerusalem), Mystery Sea (Belgium), and Copy For Your Records (NYC). Consider "leave/trace" a graduation ceremony, as Shakhnes steps away from pseudonymity and into the bright lights of his own exceptional music. "leave/trace" offers a compelling display of musical abstraction, blending field recordings from peculiar and mundane origins into sumptuously detailed and surreally original new forms. Shakhnes is deftly able to capture and juxtapose otherwise overlooked details of commonplace events, placing his work at the fulcrum of contemporary tape music. Never overly literal, "leave/trace" instead allows the listener to find their own way through its compositions, granting rich reward for those willing to make the journey. “leave/trace” is a beautiful LP, published in an edition of 500 copies." -Glistening Examples. "This is unquestionably Grishas most convincing statement to date, and one which cements him in the frontline of artists to watch as the year unfolds. A fabulous LP." -Graham Lambkin, KYE Records.
