Artist: ALCORN, SUSAN
Title: And I Await the Resurrection of the Pedal Steel Guitar
Format: LP
Label: Olde English Spelling Bee
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"This is the fifth solo offering by the Houston, Texas based pedal steel sorceress, Susan Alcorn. "The Heart Sutra" opens and is inspired by the "Sutra of the Heart of Transcendent Wisdom", which was delivered by Buddha 2,500 years ago. It is a beautiful, yet solemn work that reverbates from within as Susan strums those magical strings. The title track, "And I Await the Resurrection of the Pedal Steel Guitar", was inspired by Messiaens "Et Expecto Ressurectionum Mortuorum". It is a near 16-minute epic of stirring, haunting sounds. Each note is stretched out and floats like a spirit on the wind in a graveyard. Ms. Alcorns approach to the pedal steel guitar is completely unique and she doesnt quite sound like anyone else. If one is patient enough, they will realize that she makes every note and space count. "The Glass is Already Broken" is another piece in which each melodic fragment is touching, somber and well-selected, yet it drifts into a more sinister area. "The First Turning of the Wheel" was inspired, oddly enough, by the late Bob Graettinger, composer & arranger for Stan Kentons classic album, "This Modern World/City of Glass". I am not quite sure how this music is related to Kentons modern big band work, but again I was moved by the solemn spaciousness. For "The Second Turning of the Wheel", the notes are again softly stretched out and immensely eerie. On "Three Minute Warning", Susan lets each sound swirl and be bathed in a haze or a ghost-like echo." - Bruce G. (Downtown Music Gallery)

Artist: AUTRE NE VEUT
Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Olde English Spelling Bee
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Debut LP by ANV. Co-release with Upstairs CD-R -- the label run by Dan Lopatin (of Oneohtrix Point Never / Games). Mixed by Chris Coady at DNA Downtown, NYC."  "Autre Ne Veut (I want no other) was inscribed on the back of a gold and garnet hat ornament (ca. 1475) found at Hanley Castle in Worcestershire. It is rumored to be the gift of an English Duke to his French mistress, but this is simply conjecture." -- Metropolitan Museum of Art / The Cloisters, New York City  "Olde English Spelling Bee is one of those labels you can implicitly trust to provide you with the most brilliantly weird music. Their latest missive is a self titled shocker from Autre Ne Veut, a moocher from the same circles as Oneohtrix Point Never and all those weirdo Brooklyn types with an uncanny line in subtly skewed pop queerness. Seriously, this is one of the strangest, most jarringly unique records of the year, and we love it. At heart its an incredible pop album with traces of Prince, Prefab Sprout and Erasure at its core, but each melody and harmony is delivered with an off-key sleight of hand that really plays on your preconceptions and experience of classic synth pop. Theres definite nods to the soundtracks of John Hughes movies and the like, but its perhaps more like The Breakfast Club score remade by the Troma company for some secret pay-per-view internet channel. Autre Ne Veut has possibly made one of our favourite albums this year and we urge you to investigate without delay. Essential!" - Boomkat.

Artist: BIG TROUBLES
Title: Drastic & Difficult
Format: 7"
Label: Olde English Spelling Bee
Country: USA
Price: $6.50
"Kicking off the new OESB 7" series with a 4 track single by Big Troubles. International playboy Matt Mondanile (Real Estate, Ducktails) discovered Big Troubles and urged Olde English Spelling Bee to sign these guys on the spot for their fresh industrial shoegaze pop sound. Done and done. Features home recordings by Alex Craig and Ian Drennan who split songwriting and vocal duties down the middle. They are joined live by Luka Usmiani (No Demons Here) on bass and Sam Franklin (Fluffy Lumbers) on drums. Their debut full-length album, Worry, will be out on OESB in July." - Olde English Spelling Bee.

Artist: BIG TROUBLES
Title: Worry
Format: LP
Label: Olde English Spelling Bee
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"The very premise of this musical -- executives borrowing an apartment to cheat on their wives -- makes this show entertainment for grown-ups. If youre cool with your older children being exposed to infidelity to the nth degree, they will likely enjoy the wit of the dialogue and the bouncy score. But take note: there is a suicide attempt and a drunk scene -- not exactly fare for young ones. Debut LP by Ridgewood, NJ shoegazers Big Troubles. Its pretty good. Parental advisory stickers not included." With glossy full-color insert and download coupon. "This immense new album from Big Troubles follows on from a great four-song EP for the Olde English Spelling Bee singles club, featuring the New Jersey fuzz-pop project bejewelled with pop hooks and spurts of brain-scorching noise. Theres an abundance of blistering C86-style pop nuggets on here, from the distortion-surfing Bite Yr Tongue to the euphorically hooked-up Freudian Slips. Theres an overwhelmingly fizzy, treble-some recording style here which imbues the whole thing with a hazy, nostalgic quality that reminds us of everything from My Bloody Valentine to The Jesus and Mary Chain to Dinosaur Jr at their very peak -- making for one of the standout lo-fi pop records of the year bar none. Very highly recommended." - Boomkat.

Artist: BLACK JOKER
Title: Watch Out!
Format: LP
Label: Olde English Spelling Bee
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Fully re-mastered vinyl edition of what was originally a Europe-only cassette released in an edition of 80 copies from the solo project of Spencer Clark of The Skaters/Vodka Soap/Monopoly Child et al. Spencer describes Black Joker as being more drone-focused and with faster percussion than the recent Monopoly Child sets. Indeed, the percussion is thrifty and up-front, with arcs of criss-crossing time signatures generating maximum space/time confusion. The combination of trance-informed momentum and bubbling electronic sci-fi tones sounds closest to one of the Sun Ra Arkestras most future-visioned takes on �??Ancient Aethiopia�?� while expanding on the classic post-Angus MacLise feel of all of the best Skaters material. Comes with pro-printed 80s style 12�?� maxi-sleeves with liner notes by Fortean authority, itinerant visionary and Skaters road mangler in-absentia Charles Berlitz. �?��?�the drifting of desert sand sculptures appearing within crystaline miraged mountains during a cycle in which the gleaming of sand star sparkled night is blown, floating towards dawn, as the racing of the camels amongst the sunbound mirages expend dimensions of presentation for these sculptures, which, as wind diminishes and returns, a sand is cast to represent the variety of dimensions interacted : as symbold vision, where the atmosphered wind senses the stars amongst the sand, the camel within the mirage, and the mediation of an experiences whole motion of interaction...�?� - David Keenan

Artist: CHAOS DESTROY
Title: Lightning Strikes Twice
Format: LP
Label: Olde English Spelling Bee
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Taking cues from the wordless death-grind proto-metal of the first Obituary lp: C>D- somehow takes the fear-soaked brain of that tiny dude from the o.g. THE FLY: two micro-seconds before he gets his web-trapped body eaten by the world most gruesome spider EVER: and power-channel it thru the MOST horribly unmusical-rotten guitar speaker cones since the creation of “music.” Speaking of music: inside this LP there is none: is not just mere dribbling NOISE: its like a one dimensional terra-plane of cultural war of warbly Anime-frightmares clashing in a baby-dumping dumpster in a Baltimore/DC area alleyway during a WRETCHED static storm while the co-criminal on watch nods off on the job whilst Ipodin The Swankys. On a Tuesday morning. In the Spring. Ive seen pictures of this band: but someone pulled a horrid prank and replaced the bullet-belts and street punx ice grills with shorts, muffin tops and smiles. Huh? Confusion Chaos is the fighting spirit: The Lp begins with some semblance of structure and riffs but like a magician armed with 10,000,000 daisy-chained death metal pedals instead of card tricks: the cunning seems to come on too quick to warrant a double-featured extended stay, unless the members want to “Fuck More.” - Imagine if the Happy Flowers WERE Horribly Charred Infants and Anuss and instead of LSD as the catalyst it was Grande Lattes mixed with the magic dust from the excess plastic off of big money Flexi-Discs and the sweat from the brow of all night nuclear sex addicts. I gotta hand it to the second full length from this amp scorched mild-mannered crew: it at least doesnt come with a tan file folder containing sharpie pictures of cookies and flowers. Not too many lp in the tomb that include that.... I remember reading an interview with Lotus Dan saying how “he could write a dissertation on the genius of Chaos Destroy” - while something like that could land you at LEAST a free entrance semester to Lansing Community College: im sure the “song writing” would throw a Fluxus-like brain nugget freeze to the District Manager of GUITAR CENTER East Coast Mt. Vernon for a LOOONG TIME. If you dug up the body of JIMI HENDRIX to show him the LORD-OF-THE-RINGS-ON-LEPROSY GUITAR TONE diseasing this platter: hed more than likely think his grave-dirt ears were filled with cotton tin balls dipped in Trouma-radiation static and say “ask Clapton or that Frank dude from Lebenden Toten what he thinks...anyway this record is POGO and RETARDED...”..Thx Jimi. How this bucket-of screaming bolts screech buzz no vowel no word lp ended up on Olde English Spelling Bee is truly a brain-boiling mystery: but the world is an even more destroyed place with its mutant creation. I suggest you drill/add four more off-center holes to the label and cash in your SLURPEE POINTS for the next punk/hxc phenom: BALANCED CORE: punx will trade in the fuzz pedals and blown 8 speaker cabinets for a SUPER nice home-gym to sweat out and show off balance beams routines of the most political and intense nature EVER. Imagine the scene reports on that: alot more RAW thats for sure. YOU HEARD IT HEAR FIRST."  - INZANE JOHNNY OLSON.

"Well there is one band that never made it to this seasons Mad Max fashion show, or the new bar where all the freshly minted tattoo models who used to collect Brainbombs records or whatever now wash ashore to meet and screw. Yes indeed, punk hath long since been frozen in the ice age or by the cold wave, or whatever.  Punk is hippies is noisers is hip hop gothers. Maybe you were too busy collecting dirt on white jeans, and scrubbin off any trace of bourgeois privelege. Or maybe you were gossiping about whose Italian motor cycle boots were the harshest or whatever, or maybe when you were eBaying Skinny Puppy shirts and Totenkopf pins for the freezing weather to come, you missed out on things like the Music Not Music 7” by Chaos Destroy or their Stupid Night tape on Hierodule. Indeed maybe you thought you discovered the new Black Flag in a Midwest sine wave or in some noise-hop karaoke or maybe you just realized that you really wanted to tie girls up all along and fascist haircuts were the best compliment to yr imaginary order. EITHER WAY. Chaos Destroy hath since emerged, behind your back and laughing at you for how much you have grown!..... Yep, in some parts of the world, say like Southern Maryland, “music” began with the first notes and drum slams of the “Mental Disorder” EP and only flashed here and there since, on say a few flexi discs or 3rd degree bootleg cassettes, mostly of Japanese origin. You wont get a better invitation to a real barn-yard violent party than from Chaos Destroy. For in the land of Chaos Destroy, the sound track is Dust Noise and Gai and the milk and honey is cider and glue. Nope, youre not gonna get this from all the new records with black and white photos of dudes in fetish masks around magickal alters they got from Party City. Who the fuck would want to go to a party like that? Nope, this record is purely illogical snot from a gang who were fed battery acid out their mommas titty. The sound of synapses unfurling and language crumbling A.K.A. THE BEST PUNK BAND IN THE USA. Lest your brains get vacuumed out of yr ears now, poser!!!!" - Ravi Binning (Thought Broadcast, Hierodule Editions).

Artist: COHEN, ALICE
Title: Pink Keys
Format: LP
Label: Olde English Spelling Bee
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"The color pink corresponds metaphysically with the 3rd cosmic ray, symbolizing divine love and gentleness. The expression of the pink ray acts as a means of communication or interaction by radio, telephone, and telegraph and accesses the power to travel to inner planes. The keys unlock this ability, and the keyhole represents the portal we pass through.
Pink Keys is the 4th solo album from musician & visual artist Alice Cohen. Using the idea of etheric keyholes as portals, the 11 songs act as keys; unlocking visions of different eras, places and dimensions of consciousness. The album showcases Cohens versatility as a musician and songwriter by drawing from a wide range of influences including her roots in 70s Philly Soul/disco, 80s new wave, and cosmic electronic music. Pink Keys unfurls like a roll of old film, revealing scenes of mystical realms and utopian beachscapes, as well as tawdry street scenes, where neon hotel signs blink, and a magicians silks flutter.
The album was recorded over a span of nine months at her home in Brooklyn, and was mixed by Chris Moore (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, TV on the Radio, Liars) at Headgear Studios. It features guest appearances from Autre Ne Veut and Danny Lane (Sofa Club) on backing vocals, Thor Harris (Swans/Smog/Shearwater) on percussion, and Sara Villard (K-Holes/Bezoar) on saxophone. The album features a new version of her instrumental "The Lacemakers" which was previously released on Daniel Lopatins (Oneohtrix Point Never/Games) 2010 compilation "Radio Scenic Glow Volume One". It was a key release in the new synth/hypnagogic pop underground with tracks by Julian Lynch, Autre Ne Veut, Stellar OM Source, OPN, Games, and Gatekeeper." - Olde English Spelling Bee. Co-release between OESB & Crinoline.

Title: Walking Up Walls
Format: LP
Label: Olde English Spelling Bee
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"Walking Up Walls" is the second solo album from long-time musician and visual artist Alice Cohen. In contrast to her previous studio efforts these are raw home recordings with an intensely personal vibe. The sixteen short song-sketches alternate between densely layered shoegaze burners and shimmering, ethereal drifters. Exploring shadowy corners and using the musical equivalent of automatic writing - this was considered to be a sonic diary and not originally intended for release. For reference points think "Pink Opaque" era Cocteau Twins filtered through the early 90s lens of New Zealanders like Alastair Galbraith & Sandra Bell." - Olde English Spelling Bee.

"These Montreal-based destructo rockers grind the edges of form with teeth as shaven as Harry Pussy, early Royal Trux, The Shaggs and Nautical Almanac. The kind of deliriously free rock that feels so caught up in the tradition that its perpetually ten years ahead. And not a whiff of skank in sight." - David Keenan. Limited & numbered edition of 250 copies, silkscreened covers.

Title: Rain In Skull
Format: LP
Label: Olde English Spelling Bee
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Australian Charles Curses music is one of the weirdest things Ive come across all year. On Rain in Skull, fragments of disjointed folk melodies move across a plain of wheezing chords, tape hiss, childrens voices, ambient washes, amp hum, electronic glitch and bits of buzz in general. The contrast between downcast guitar playing and the physical claustrophobia-inducing weight of sound is equally perplexing and intriguing. Its all presented in a decidedly lo-fi environment but the sound construction is anything but simple, as this is a complex sonic stew, unique in the true sense of the word. - Mats Gustafsson The Broken Face Limited pressing of 200 copies, with full-color spraymounted covers, re-worked and remastered issue of an obscure cd-r release from 2007." - Olde English Spelling Bee.

Artist: D.A.
Title: Odeon
Format: LP
Label: Olde English Spelling Bee
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Debut album by sci-fi oriented vintage synth duo who recently relocated to Los Angeles from Texas. Very outsider in that they were completely unaware of the current synth revival going on in the American underground (Emeralds, OPN, Caboladies, et al). D.A. began recording after being commissioned to make soundtracks for floatation tanks at a new age center in Texas. A chance meeting at a cafe led to the duo handing dozens of hours of these sessions to OESB. This album features some standouts from those early recordings. Their time in Los Angeles has been highlighted by a series of private rooftop concerts that overlook training grounds for the L.A.P.D. riot squads - the scrambling helicopters and practice gun battles below adding to the sinister dystopian vibe of their compositions. Limited numbered run of 400 copies, silkscreened by Monoroid on heavy duty chipboard jackets." - OESB.

"Dear Matt, Its confetti for memories! your buddy Charles and the sunday afternoon gripfest staring, check this out: "Little Man Tate" and "Little Big Man", super funny, as well as a dusty tough to read flick called, you know i got carrots for brains, "Pipeline"! So, you know every trilogy needs the curveball, and well, "Pipeline" has got to be uncle charlie. I found these videos in the basement of chateau terrace antwerp, but its super gritty kitty down there and i just grabbed three quickies. So I just put on your jams, and i am gunna watch Pipelines surf visions and scope your memories and sunbake. but man, Pipelines front flap video tape protection is busted, so i am gunna trade it with "You Got Mails" front flap, at this point i have to duck into my roomates zone and grip his RCA to Mini jack, but he has a sign posted that reads "STAY OUT OF MY ROOM". super funny, but later i am gunna take the sign, cross out "ROOM" and insert "DREAMS", put the sign on my wall, let somebody specials red orange lipstick make out with it, so that the guy knows hes a cutie and chazzis touched by freak. But so check it, i had to grip this RCA to Mini jack so that i can grip your memories and watch Pipeline. Hey man, for real though, member when we were on the beach in barcelona, before our car got towed, and we were cruising to beverly hills cop soundtrack, The Master and Carmen San Diego were in the back, we got to the beach jumped in the water drank beer ate coconuts and got massages while staring at boob people. at that moment, like when we snuck into the berlin film festival and danced Oceans 11, wow, my roomate just came home, hes wearing a long party wig and telling chazzi that he shagged all night long in a squat called "Duel 3", no joke; but yeah, i cannot, for the parrot in me, forget those times, to each his own future, So wait, back to Pipeline,, no wait, i got to tell you about this party last full moon, my roomate throws one every month when the moons light eclipses that of the rational minds hesitations, and well i had to dj, i wanted to, but i brought the parrot along, you met him right? he is always there when chazzy does the radio show or when monopoly needs vocals on a bamboo track, but neither of us invite this guy to the parties where those other dreams come true. its not cool, so i brought him along, you know his name right? Belafonte, so belafonte and i start dj-ing, you know that song from Police Academy called "I got to be somebody" by Jack Mack and a Hearttack? stars and ecstasy, for real, and jel doctor was getting me buckets of beer, cuz it was so hot and the air is full of short stuff, so i flip the records and repeatedly fend off requests for beat it and dirty diana, and all of a sudden Belafonte has drank all my beer and is smoking cigarettes, there are no tickets for free coldies, and i get pretty pissed, i kinda let Belafonte have it, you know, telling him that i cant take him anywhere, gnorm the gnome style, and hes like "alright, you go get some more beers", wow, your mirror jam just cruised in - memories... so, yeah, Belafonte is like "go, get some more beers and let me talk some of these girls into dancing with us and you will be calling me Most Valuable Vertabrae, birdtalk magazine style, so i get a bunch of coldies cuz tod god just came through with some bready poo, i come back to the dance floor, and well, i guess Belafonte burnt his head on his own cigarette, and this girl named Manon, but he understood as Emanuelle, like schnikies!! well his head is burnt and this black paint starts rubbing off his head, and i notice that there is paint on my neck, my face, and on her face, and her neck, and so on and so forth CSI style, and everybody kind of understands, the girls have taken this black paint and are marking it on their bodies like war paint initiation style, and they are petting Belafonte like hes the unattainable, i had no idea that this parrot was a model for Birdtalk Magazine back in its hey day, group therapy is affective... later i asked Manon for some affection, and she said "no, your feet are too dirty", on account of me wearing flippers to a dance party, and was like cool, its not even july 4th yet, but then, as i walked away she was like "Three O Clock, meet me at the Zoo!" no joke, Belafonte and me were like ah kuku ah kaka bamboo-for-two style... Stories are forever and i got to get back to PIPELINE, which is hitting the screen right now, and its definitely not about surfing and reminds charles of when Ebay and you stayed at the new york dantes microchip apartment and it was so hot and you guys passed out next to each other in your undies exclusively like siamese pipeline limbo style, if i had hoagie it would have been chazzi to chucky in like 4 doners and sixty seckies...

Jenkins (of Ghosting, Portland Bike Ensemble) layers acoustic guitars in a psychedelic, personal style thats more intuitive and exploratory than technically inclined.

Title: Multitopia
Format: LP
Label: Olde English Spelling Bee
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"New album from James Ferraro of The Skaters/Lamborghini Crystal et al, the first run ever presented under his own name. Multitopia is our reality system, James writes in the liner notes. A post 9/11 reality technology in between the frames of data reception. A cross wire into new head and necessary evolution upon the impact of the towers. It feels like a major work from James, the first fully-conceived album to go beyond his initial brain-fried 1980s nightmare culture documentation, reconciling both dystopian and utopian mindsets in a vision of Pan as Multitopia. Body modification, the blurring of sexual persona (via cracked images of James on the back with a modified pair of breasts chilling next to an arcade game) and cyborg intelligences are all recurrent tropes in James work but here he explodes them all, with some of the most aggressively nuanced keyboard and drum work of his entire career, kicking off with a full kit sound that sits somewhere between industrial steel drums and chaos pads then building to an evocative peak that then dissolves into wave after wave of fluxing keyboard drone and oddly looped vocal fragments. The gravity of the music is truly omnivorous, devouring drone, punk, new wave, industrial and minimal synth modes and spitting them back out as intensely detailed black and white visions of the future now. James somehow manages to interweave vacuous TV announcements and cheap anchor man quips alongside the lucid, microtone rich keyboard work, situating the whole deal in a virtual, godless netherworld with each track a further descent into hell. It is both beautiful and horrifying. A major work from James - no one is doing anything remotely like him. Highly recommended. -- David Keenan.

"Remastered issue of an obscure tape from the mysterious Outer Limits Collective (Wingdings/Explorers/Matrix Metals/Foxy Baby/Yoga/90210/etc). Limited to 425 copies in pro-printed duo-tone sleeves with a 5-page essay booklet." "The flashback repository is a storehouse of collective waste consciousness from all beings of the universe, i.e. all unfiltered myth & material of the human/alien/animal mind, laying dormant in a hidden dimension resembling a disposal area or transfer station somewhere within our spectral plane. A vast depot for all universal race memory that passes beyond our mortal earthly cognition and subconscious apparatus. This reposited latent substance is available to all organisms within our particular sphere, all beings earthy and paranormal. The recordings here represent the three main stages of unconscious withdrawal: Glimpse, Recurrence, and Manifestation - they are a blue print of sorts. There may be a possibility of the retrieval of materials - the recycling of this substance alongside the development of individual real-time understanding of eternal materials and impressions that are constantly escaping our sensory grip. The repository shows itself as what appears to be part of an undivided whole, a section manifested in our dimensional field through thin channels of emotion & vibration. These phenomena are the result of direct brain-repository contact, a glimpse into the infinite plenitude of energy and data housed by the repository. With each glimpse, each peek through these looking-glass channels, the mind gains a deeper insight into the potentials hibernating within the data-pool and the particular characteristics and movements of the repository. It is important to note that the usage of the word flashback connotes not only the re-collection or re-existence of memory and dream data from the past, but also the future. For instance one can flash forward just as easily and achieve the desired results." -- Outer Limits Inc.

A talented multi-instrumentalist,  Julian has had a busy summer playing countless shows both solo and as a member of Predator Vision, Ducktails, and Real Estate offshoot Alex Bleeker & the Freaks. This album is comprised of 4-track home recordings made in his hometown of Ridgewood, New Jersey and also in Madison, Wisconsin where he is a graduate student in ethnomusicology. His interest in Indian & South Asian music blossomed several years ago when he was living in Washington, D.C. and working for Smithsonian Folkways Recordings. This exposure to their vast library of world music has informed his output, and he blends instruments such as harmonium & tabla with guitar-rock instrumentation. Also of note is his use of circular breathing techniques on the clarinet - often a focal point during his meditative live shows." - Olde English Spelling Bee.

"Bruce McClure is well known on the international experimental film circuit for his unique projector performances that utilize film loops & modified 16mm projectors. But there is also an equally innovative sound element to his work and he has been embraced by the experimental music community as well. Bruce performed at the Chocolate Monk curated Colour Out of Space festival in 2008 and was chosen as an opening act for Throbbing Gristles reunion tour in the spring of 2009. During McClures performances the optical sound signals from each projector are fed through banks of guitar pedals, manipulated live, and played at extremely high volumes through the p.a. system. The different loops phase in and out of each other resulting in what could be described as a power electronics version of the early tape experiments of Steve Reich and Terry Riley, while sparser sections have an off-kilter minimal techno feel reminiscent of Plastikman and the early works of Thomas Brinkmann. This album features four excerpts from a professionally recorded performance in early 2009 at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, MN.

Si Faustine is their second album and, like Virgin Spectacle, was recorded at Jason Meaghers Black Dirt Studio.

"Third full-length release from this Boise, Idaho duo following two critically acclaimed efforts - the Sea Of Sand double-LP on OESB and She Hid Behind Her Veil CD on 20 Buck Spin. PussyGutt continue to develop their unique brand of doom soundtrack heaviness on Gathering Strengths, which features two side-long compositions titled Silence Within & Spirit Walker. Clarinets, violin, and cello are all prominent - lending this album even more of an avant-classical feel than previous efforts. The band calls this album an esoteric meditation on soul and nature and they cite Alvin Lucier, Henry Gorecki, and Arvo Part as primary influences for these recordings - along with the funeral doom of groups like Nortt, Catacombs, and Celestiial. Aquarius Records sums it up best in their review of the CD: This is some seriously sinister shit, sweeping and darkly cinematic, the soundtrack to the eventual collapse of the universe, the sound of dying stars, or of some long slumbering beast awakening after millennia... infused with a deep otherworldly beauty. Packaged in heavy duty covers silkscreened by Monoroid, limited and numbered edition of 550 copies, with glossy insert." - Olde English Spelling Bee.

Label: Olde English Spelling Bee
Country: USA
Price: $28.00
"PussyGutt, noun, pronunciation: p u-sE-"guht ; etymology: Middle English, from Old English guttas, plural; probably akin to Old English gEotan to pour: (1) : BOWELS, ENTRAILS -- usually used in plural (2) : the basic visceral or emotional part of a person b : CATGUT. "Pussygut" is an old western slang term for the violin or fiddle - as the strings used to be made from cat intestines. "PussyGutt" is the duo of Blake Green and Brittany McConnell from Boise, Idaho. They have created a distinctive flavor of outsider "doom" with unique instrumentation that coincidentally features LOTS of violin (Brittany is a classically trained violinist), along with synths, gongs, bowed cymbals, crystal goblets, organ, drums, clay pots, forest sounds, ducks, various electronics, tons of feedback and humming bass-amp, and as if all thats not enough theres a secret weapon up their collective sleeve - the TRACTOR!!. The group holed up for nine months in their studio experimenting and composing the four side-long pieces for this double album. They are joined on Sea of Sand by Seattles Garek Druss (of A Story of Rats and Ear Venom) as collaborator/3rd member. Garek contributed his experiments with field recordings, repetition, electronics, and sound-collage to the proceedings. Also appearing is Chad Lefler of Seattle legends Old Cloud throwing down some heavy-duty amplifier worship. The music? Extremely HEAVY. Deeply WEIRD. A friend of the band coined the term "soundtrack aficianarcoleptics" to describe who this album will most appeal to and indeed the entire album is largely cinematic in its approach. The "riffs" & drums mostly stay hidden in their caves, venturing outside on a few brief excursions to catch some moonlight and provide puncuation to the drones and other assimilated madness. Limited edition of 550 hand-assembled copies. Packaged in heavy-duty gatefold sleeves with four spraymounted panels that were custom offset-printed on silver stock with two coats of black ink for extra darkness. Full size inserts printed on vellum paper.

Title: Suburban Tours
Format: LP
Label: Olde English Spelling Bee
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Rangers is Joe Knight. "Suburban Tours" is his debut vinyl release after a string of popular cassette albums last year - including "Low Cut Fades" on Not Not Fun. His sound has been referred to out in blogland as "elevator psyche" and "mirrorball funknagogic pop" - and thats not a bad start considering his music is often bass-driven with washes of synth and prog-psych guitar riding over the top. Unlike the extended side-long collages of his cassette releases, "Suburban Tours" is a collection of eleven concise "pop" songs that were written and recorded after moving to San Francisco from his native Texas. Not knowing anyone in this new locale, he describes the period after the move as being extremely lonely and plagued with near-constant rainfall. So he holed up and focused his attentions on recording a batch of songs that reflected on his suburban upbringing outside of Dallas and what he calls the "failed connections with nature" that exist in these suburban zones (fake lighting, cranked-up air conditioning, golf courses, and gated "communities" where everyone keeps to themselves). But despite the loneliness and melancholic themes there is a remarkable amount of color to his music. Like its the sound of what hed want to have playing on his headphones while riding a bike thru these neighborhoods -- the sound necessary to make these places seem lively and fun. Music blog Visitation Rites hits the nail on the head when saying "his music reflects a parallel fixation with the tape reel as a cutting board for the psychic trappings of middle class American youth."  Rangers is drawing from an entirely different set of musical influences than the rest of his peers - combining a passion for Manchesters Northern Soul sound with early 80s rock radio staples like Rush and The Police and the 70s prog-fusion of Weather Report. Plus hes got the chops to pull off this unlikely union -- in fact the cutting engineer for "Suburban Tours" was utterly baffled and commented that it sounded to him like a lost Steely Dan session recorded onto a mangled microcassette tape. Thats a good thing, right? Full color pro-printed covers and insert - also includes a download coupon for the mp3 version." - OESB.

" - OESB. more about the album Zephyrus - in Squims own words: lets see, recorded most of it in the spring of 2003... its constructed from a combination of field recordings and studio sessions where i would bounce the tracks, pan them, speed them up, slow them down and add filters and reverb. they were also run through a feedback loop in the mixer with various effects on a first-generation korg kaos pad. for instruments i played an electric guitar, a harmony acoustic guitar, a casio cz-101 and a casio sk1. for the field recordings I used a minidisk (that fell apart during the sessions) with a stereo mic... a fisher price tape recorder, and a hand held tape recorder... while doing the studio sessions i would also record what I was playing on the tape decks then later position them around the room for playback... i would ping pong these sounds back and forth several times. I was also experimenting with the feedback that occurred from layering the same sound over itself multiple times. during the recording i was reading a lot of weird sci-fi, horror and ghost stories. particularly Algernon Blackwood, Clark Ashton Smith, Arthur Machen, M.R. James and William Hope Hodgson. these influenced me to try and capture a sense of cosmic dread contrasted by everyday surroundings. "Trial by Cobra" and "Doppelganger" are references to The Blind Owl, a Persian novel by Sadegh Hedayat." -Olde English Spelling Bee

"You can not stop thinking. About 18, I finally calmed down, I thought I could stop thinking completely.  I become a zombie for four years. Then, in a broken heart, I started again. I came out of the "grip" that held me tight. I started hearing voices. I also tried to kill time. First, you must confess that its people like you and I believe that is broadcasting the idea. It is terrible. When I look around, I am someone who is the same idea with me. My idea is to broadcast. You can read our thoughts. The first is that we can consider a bad idea (like gender or a persons weaknesses). Second, we believe that we have the power to make people read our thoughts, even if it is bad. Because it has the broadcasting of this thought, please consider why it is a lot of people. To hear any ideas you and I are thinking of and I thought of you. Some people think that for all this world, and you can hear what you think they are. The reason for this is that you can read the mind of everyone of us. There have been times when I have an idea that I will consider evil. I do not believe them, but I know they are in my own voice in my head. Then, I would think that they have been implanted by external forces trying to influence my behavior. I just do not want it to develop into something like I do not believe, my inner voice is your own or something like that." - OESB.
