Artist: INSTITUT FÜR FEINMOTORIK
Title: Abgegriffen
Format: LP
Label: Marriage
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"INSTITUT FUER FEINMOTORIK (IFF) is an artists group working in different formats and media. Although the main activity is acoustic-art / music. IFF is located in Bad Saeckingen, Berlin, Cologne and Karlsruhe (all Germany). The group was founded 1997 for a club-event in Basel (Switzerland) at brisant kiosk/club. IFF produces different outputs (photography, video, music, drawing, computer-programming, printed matters etc.), organizes artistic-/cultural events, does lectures and workshops and publishes artistic goods such as music records, books etc. IFF got some reputation for their acoustic work with a reductionist set-up called octogrammoticum: 8 turntables, 4 DJ mixers + end-mixer, which is served by the group members. Anything (except records) which somehow fits between turntables and pick-up cartridges (household-rubberbands, paper-stickers, rubbergums, handicraft-tools + various tinker-trivias) may be played. Lately, IFF contributed to Art Exhibitions (e.g. MUDAM, Luxembourg), took part in the music-theater "ensemble fuer staedtebewohner" in Vienna, produced an abstract radioplay for RADIO ARTHUR (Swiss) and another one for RADIO ZERO (Portugal), they also published a book entitled "Feinmotorik Kompendium" in 2005. Includes a download." - Marriage.

Artist: LUCKY DRAGONS
Title: Dark Falcon
Format: LP
Label: Marriage
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Appearing originally in the fall of 2002 as a limited CD-only release from the pioneering indie electronic label 555 Recordings, Lucky Dragons first full length Dark Falcon circulated widely through burned CDs and tapes traded amongst friends. Now this mythical mixtape creature is getting a royal reissue treatment from Marriage Records, coinciding with the release of Lucky Dragons newest full length, Dream Island Laughing Language. This is where the Los Angeles-based collective learned how to make a record: culling from two years worth of accumulated field recordings and tender homemade spirituals, each of the 21 tracks hangs together in a delicate reinventing of traditional song structures. For all of its densely layered nostalgia and boldly digital textures, this is a lucid and revealing listen, a microscopically poetic vision into the process of blossoming collaboration between good friends in hard times. Cassettes traded through the mail, chance snippets of radio from a friends bedroom, firecrackers in the street, drums in the living room, overheard conversations, every sound is to be listened through: a window perpetually opening. Spare and gentle, explosive and candid, all of the collectives prolific output relies on this record as its foundation." -Marriage

Artist: LUCKY DRAGONS
Title: Dream Island Laughing Language
Format: LP
Label: Marriage
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"The eighteenth release by Los Angeles-based Lucky Dragons details the continuing pursuit of a humble and ecstatic, drippy and explosive, smoldering and upset music for our experience in America right now -- messages of unrest have long failed to be clearly understood, solitude and empty organization have given way to a very current volcanic desire for togetherness. Genre has never been less important -- influences and ideas are consumed and digested and released in the spirit of a culture larger than music as it is bought and sold. This is world music for a world that doesnt care about music as we have packaged it for the last 100 years. You could call it post- noise, or post-anything you like, but we would prefer to call it pre-something. For this recording, the time is 2007-2008, the place is California. The name of the record refers to the landfill-island in Tokyo harbor where the original lucky dragon now lives -- dream island-- and to the creation of imaginary languages -- laughing language -- that can be used to express things our own languages cant. As with Lucky Dragons legendary live performances, these recordings strive to create a space where community and memory and ritual and perspective all come together as a crystal and then vibrate and shatter. Includes 24-page booklet of drawings." -Marriage
