"Super deluxe, beautiful gatefold sleeve with full color printed inner sleeves." - FE. "This three-sided LP is a unique collaboration by some extraordinary talents, working under the moniker of the Afternoon Saints, better known individually as Lee Renaldo (Sonic Youth), David Watson, Christian Marclay and Gunter Muller. The Shirley Jangle is an intimate and subtle meeting place of noise, sound art and experimental improvisation. Three sides of bubbling audio biosphere and a fourth side etching by Lee Renaldo, made specifically for this release. The album was recorded at the famed Echo Canyon Studio, on Murray Street, in downtown New York, mixed and edited by the one and only Jim ORourke." - Kraak.

Artist: DOLPHINS INTO THE FUTURE
Title: Ke Ala Ke Kua
Format: LP
Label: Kraak
Country: Belgium
Price: $18.00
"In January and February of this year L.R.J. Martens spent his days in Big Island, Hawaii to focus on the communication of Dolphins. For this lp his encounter with a group of spinner dolphins and humphback whales was translated to audio postcards. In three epic new age compositions Martens seeks the ultimate sound for the Cetacean Nation, of which he is one of the official composers. Traces of esoteric seventies fusion and the 3D universes of Jean-Luc Bozzoli are gently transformed to artistic sound relaxation and aquatic poetry. L.R.J. Martens is one of the key figures in the Belgian DIY avant-garde scene. With labels such as Imvated, Bread and Animals and Taped Sounds he gave new energy to the cassette underground in Belgium. With a background in various noise sensations and neo-dadaistic sound play, he now found his ying and yang in Dolphins Into The Future. A-side) Ke Ala Ke Kua A lucid collage of alt saxophone, tapes, synthesizer, Pacific Ocean waves floating in 7s, Polynesian choirs and poly-rhythms, site-specific birdsounds and walkman. Three chapters to translate the extreme dramatics, spirit, multi dimensions and beauty of the Kealakekua Bay, the Gods pathway. . B-side) Hookenaaha Halawai An emotional-emphatic sound memory of an encounter with a school of Spinner Dolphins and two Humph-Back Whales. Created with the Dave Smith Evolver keyboard, and the angel vocals from the Casio CTK810. Kookika Mokuaina Study for alt saxophone, birdsongs, water and cassette. Being an evocative sound postcard from Hawaiis Big Island, the Orchid Isle. Recorded and mixed iune and iulai 2010 by L.R.J. Martens at Cetacean Nation Studios, Antwerp." - Kraak.

Artist: DUCKTAILS/KOHN/PEAKING LIGHTS/ALIEN RADIO
Title: Lune Atroce/Soleil Amer
Format: 7"
Label: Kraak
Country: Belgium
Price: $7.50
"One year after the Meet the Philly elite 7" we finally release a fresh 4-way split. This time Kahn and Alien Radio are trancing deep into the history of synthesizer classics while Peaking Lights and Ducktails have a take on their own pop music. Kohn is Jagen De Blonde. He has been called the godfather of Belgian electronica. After the double-cd Koen from 2002, he started to focus on music for dance and theatre. Last year he made his comeback on wax with We need more space in the cosmos, an lp full of epic space age compositions. U C I M builds on the same vibes: trancy and neo-cosmic. Ulf Schütte plays in Datashock and Phantom Horse, but his musical climaxes are definitely at home when he fools around with his modular synths. ALIEN RADIOs music follows the tradition of Conny Planck, Delia Derbyshire, Dick Raaijmakers and Ursula Bogner. Gedanke und Ahnung is bleepsynthronica sounding like a sketch of a derailed sonic research project. PEAKING LIGHTS are the duo of Indra Dunis (ex-Numbers) and Aaron Coynes. Creatures of day creatures at night is pure summer pop. The usual synths and drumloops made place for fuzzy calypso riffing. Dunis vocal romanticism sounds sweet as a Brian Wilson song. Sc-fi soft pop! Real Estate, Alex Bleeker & the Freaks, Predator Vision, Parasails… All bands Matt Mondanile is involved in. In the last three years his music went around the world rather quickly, mainly under his DUCKTAILS moniker. His neo-tropic pop music is often linked to a movement that also houses the likes of James Feraro, Dolphins into the Future and a great deal of the Not Not Fun related bands. Sprinter is a repetitive melancholic pop song, and about the most indie track we heard from Ducktails so far!" - Kraak.
SOLD OUT

Artist: EL-G
Title: Tout Ploie
Format: LP
Label: Kraak
Country: Belgium
Price: $15.00
"We first heard the music of Paris-based Laurent Gérard when he forgot a demo-cdr in the tourvan of Jack Rose last year, and directly became one of our favourite French acts of the moment. él-g makes a strange mix of French ballads and avant-garde song-writing. A pig-headed approach of the French language and ingenious arrangments are the core business of this dude. Tout Ploie is a compilation of both the best tracks from previously released cdrs and new work. él-g appears as a sort of modern day miniature version of Serge Gainsbourg on this debut-lp. The female singer, Charlene Darling, who accompanies him throughout the most part of the record only makes this comparison more apt. Gérard has never been affraid to buy records of Lee Hazlewood and late Fleetwood Mac. He extracted the right ingredients from those records and added some genuine French sensuality. Tout Ploie is the pop album that had to be made for a long time and doesnt fear experiment with guest appearances of e.g. Ignatz, Phil Todd, Mim and Foxy De Man." - Kraak.
SOLD OUT

Artist: ES
Title: Flick
Format: CD
Label: Kraak
Country: Belgium
Price: $15.00
"Second one in the guitarimproseries (first one was Shifts). This Finish guy is pretty young but has a distinctive feel towards his guitarplay. Excerpts from his talents could be found on the Killa 7"s but here he is operating alone on his selfbuild guitar and other "soundlabs". Its dark and quiet with lots of floating, hissing and inspired contructions. Every now and then a melody pops up which brings together the harmony between impro and a "listenable" experience. As for guitarplay he got his own way in "sweeping" his strings. Es becomes soon something very personal and introspective in each individual life." - Kraak.

Artist: FUCHS, LIMPE & GERARD HERMAN
Title: Ghent October 2010
Format: Cass
Label: Kraak
Country: Belgium
Price: $9.00
"At the first edition of Tweeklank festival Limpe Fuchs and Gerard Herman proved the universal and cross-generation language of improvised music. Coming from the revolutionary sixties freak scene in Germany Fuchs still plays with the same energy on her self-built instruments consisting of impressive bronze and stone sculptures. This concert evolves around Fuchs creatures, her viola, Hermans diy duchampwheel, alt sax and expressive vocal interplay. A truly wonderful live experience captured for the cult archives." - Kraak. Fuchs is one half of the legendary avant-hippie duo Anima/Anima-Sound. Limited to 50 copies.
SOLD OUT

Artist: HAYDEN, BRIDGET
Title: An Indifferent Ocean
Format: LP
Label: Kraak
Country: Belgium
Price: $18.00
Limited to 500 copies. "Previously found prizing atom splitting feedback through a horizontal guitar, Bridget Haydens solo experiments have more lately sought the brooding, layered blues that we find resonating in “An Indifferent Ocean”. A stripped down set up, featuring an out of tune, hand me down guitar, two pedals of similar origin – no delays – and a donated fourtrack port-a-studio found on the street, has converged to form a crafted storm of abyss kicking improvisation.   Best known for her involvement with the hypnotic, shambollic and critically acclaimed drone band Vibracathedral Orchestra, Hayden split in 2006, desiring change and a new vein to hone.  She toured solo with kindred freaks such as The Aethr Method, Melanie Crowley-Delaney, Marcia Bassett and Sunburned Hand of the Man, later teaming up with The Telescopes henchman Stephen Lawrie to begin a noisy collaboration that continues to confuse and electrify.  Here, in her first official and long awaited solo release, you will find a spectrum of somnambulist trances that seamlessly conjoin dense and frantic depth with delicate fracture. Relentless guitar shredding epics are interspersed with graceful, drifting melancholia that lull the listener back to shore with a warm, whispered dream after being crashed mercilessly against the rocks." - Kraak.
SOLD OUT

Artist: HELLVETTE
Title: De Gek
Format: LP
Label: Kraak
Country: Belgium
Price: $18.00
"Hellvete is one of the three members who founded the Flemish Funeral Folk collective and a key figure of the satanadelic combo Sylvester Anfang II. Similar to the mothership, his solo work spans from folk-inspired guitar drones to minimalist keyboard esoterica. The significant difference is that his solo songs are more composed and less improvised. De Gek (meaning The Fool) is an epic trip through the different zones of the Hellvete Empire: layered guitar eruptions mix in with modern classical orchestration and dark folk tales. Influences such as Stephen R. Smith and Manuel Göttsching result in abstract sound narrations, that might just as well make one think of medieval folk or Rock In Opposition. On this debut LP all the aspects of what has been baptized the Belgian dronevolkscene culminate in an extraordinary exploration of the Self: a sonic exorcization of old demons and a return to the nostalgic peace of the country side. De Gek is a new interpretation of the modern psychedelic idylle. The Rochefort 10 of the new Belgian guitar folk tradition." - Kraak.

Artist: IGNATZ
Title: II
Format: LP
Label: Kraak
Country: Belgium
Price: $16.50
"The debut of Ignatz is still fresh in your memory, and hes already there with the follow up. On Ignatz II, he walks further down the Appalachians in the year 2050. Stunning rootsfolk, but played by a lost and unworldly creature. His sound builds further upon his debut album, with the difference that on one of the six tracks he doesnt use any effects. He even sings and talks more and creates his own musical world around it. In the meantime he has become musical partners with Paul Labreque (Sunburned Hand of the Man) and Silverster Anfgang (Belgium), but still proves that his solo work towers above his other collaborations. II is the affirmation of his talent. Future weird Belgium!!" - Kraak.

Artist: IGNATZ
Title: III
Format: LP
Label: Kraak
Country: Belgium
Price: $18.00
"George Herriman created Ignatz in 1910. It was a vicious mouse in the comic Krazy Kat. Ignatz favourite occupation was throwing bricks at Krazy Kats head, who thought it was a love declaration from the mouse. The Brussels based artist Bram Devens uses Ignatz as his alter-ego for his own pile of bricks. Acoustic songs wrapped with effects and driven by improvisation and spontaneousness. III projects the atmosphere of Jack London and The Iditarod Trail Sled Dog onto a modern world ruled by technology. Devens brings us the most genuine melancholy contemporary pop music has seen since quite some time. This album leaves the underground scenery that is troubled by trends so often far behind and just shows us the pure essence of what Music has to be: raw emotions put to sound. With his third full album Bram Devens has once again amazed us with a masterpiece. In his usual brain-melting retro-futuristic blues folk, he summons the devilish spirits of Bukka White, Robert Pete Williams and Sleepy John Estes as seen through the eyes of an adolescent Lou Reed. III tells a fictive and blurred story about the death of music genres. Tragedies built upon screeching, atonal and repetitive melodies. Smelling like a wet dog or a badly dried towel. III breathes a much more sentimental atmosphere compared to Devens�?? previous work because of his grousing voice, that is not unlike Skip James�??s. After the closing track �??Dead By noon�?�, the tormented soul frees the listener from a heavy personal trip and leaves him dazzled. III projects the atmosphere of Jack London and The Iditarod Trail Sled Dog onto a modern world ruled by technology. Devens brings us the most genuine melancholy contemporary pop music has seen since quite some time. This album leaves the underground scenery that is troubled by trends so often far behind and just shows us the pure essence of what Music has to be: raw emotions put to sound." - Kraak.

"his voice - when it intermittently appears - is disembodied by distance, by distortion and by echo. Its reedy quaver sounds barely conscious of its own presence, let alone an audience. it recall ths lo-fi contrainess of Alastair Galbraith and even the inscrutable shadings of Mississippi John Hurt or Bascorn Lamer Lunsford on Harry Smiths Anthology of American Folk Music" - Sam Davies / The Wire.

Title: Selected Songs From Cassettes 2005-2009
Format: LP
Label: Kraak
Country: Belgium
Price: $18.00
"What the hells wrong with this guy?, that will probably be the first thought that goes through your mind when first listening to this mind frying fourth lp by Belgiums most intriguing musician. Apart from the tree enigmatic vinyl releases on KRAAK Bram Devens also released a handful of tapes on different labels. This LP compiles the best tracks of his cassettes on Goaty Tapes, Bennifer Editions, Scumbag Relations, Imvated, Dreamtime Taped Sounds and New Age Tapes, plus a previously unreleased track from the Ignatz III demos, on which we hear the man as close as he ever came to the genious vibes of Lou Reed. “Selected songs from cassettes 2005-2009” shows Devens in all his different guises: from the crying sailor drowning in psychedelic mud to the melody addicted outsider balladeer choking on moonshine. This is Ignatz ultimate record and last step before his orchestrated concept album period. Cover drawing by Olivier Schrauwen." - Kraak.
