So far Fadoul (or Fadaul, or Faddoul, the transcription of his name to Latin letters differs)& his music had not been rediscovered, as a matter of fact most of those songs still left no trace whatsoever in the world wide web.

Artist: MALEK, AHMED & FLAKO
Title: The Electronic Tapes
Format: LP
Label: Habibi Funk
Country: Germany
Price: $29.00
"Unreleased early Algerian synth electronic by Ahmed Malek, compiled and co-produced by Flako. In the early 1980s, Ahmed Malek was already in his 50s, when he discovered synthesizers and electronic music for himself and started to experiment with sounds. The result was a mixture of ambient synth music, field recordings he made in Cuba and a wide variation of different sound experiments that he also presented as different avanguarde music festivals in Cuba and the US. None of it was ever released but we got a huge box of master tapes from his family and were happy to present this different side of Ahmed Maleks music. It was compiled and co-produced by Flako, a fan of early electronic and synth music. This is not a remix album though, Flakos aim was to create an album out of 2 hours of material that sounds like it might have if Mr. Malek would have finished it himself before of his death. Fully approved and licensed from the artists family. The album comes with an informative booklet with liner notes, an interview with Flako regarding his approach towards the production and unseen photos. We will also release a third album by Ahmed Malek which will be more in the vein again of the music he is known for and this album will also be previously unreleased." - Habibi Funk.

Artist: CHERRY BLOSSOMS, THE
Title: Live In Amsterdam
Format: LP
Label: Hairy Spider Legs
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"The Cherry Blossoms are to folk music what the Velvet Underground was to rock n’ roll: anti-commercial, rebellious, pure, and unlike anything else. They deconstruct folk into a a very special experimental music, but they insist they’re a front porch band. Specializing in kazoo, 6-gallon bucket, poetry, carefully awry drum rhythms, guitar, and vocals that span octaves, melodies, and time, the Cherry Blossoms are unforgettable. Lead singer Peggy Snow has said that “No one tries to control what anyone else is doing when we play.” The result is a sound that is ecstatically free, layered, and ranging. While songs like “Amazing Stars” follow a chorus sung together in sweeping, traditional hymn with a few quirks, other songs skip and spaz into a trance awash with unorthodox folkloristic layers. Their sound is at once elusive and timeless (Have I heard this song before?). It’s a sound they’ve been honing for twenty years. The Cherry Blossoms are sure to go down in history as one of the great folk bands of the 21st century. With a rotating cast of 3-8 performers, their line-up has changed over the years, but most recently consists of: Peggy Snow, John Allingham, Chuck Hatcher, Taylor Martin, Chris Davis, and Allen Lowry. Ever eclectic, members of the band are talented in their own rights. Peggy Snow is a prolific painter, John Allingham is finishing a rock-opera 10 years in the making, Allen Lowry writes amazing unconventional poetry and played drums in Lambchop, Chris Davis is an incredible music curator/contributor to the Nashville music community, Chuck Hatcher can rock any Zepplin song in existence… the list goes on and on and on. They are local legends in Nashville and sure to make music history." - Hairy Spider Legs

Title: El Ale De Mi Hmunculo
Format: LP
Label: Hakanairo
Country: Japan
Price: $32.00
"This is my 6th LP except a failed work LP. I did not take a break after I issued the last LP in 2014. In 2015 I released the second VA LP "Esperanza De OTO 2". The artists who are included the LP are based Chile and Bolivia and Japan, USA. Their music is each rock and electronic music, etc. So I continue to be affected by also a lot of kinds of music other than folk music. Also Mamitori Ulithis empress yonaguni san released a live LP by bruit direct disques in France 2015. Of course I played 12-string guitar on that LP. It is a rock that does not resemble other music...! And in 2015, I released Anton Senchi s LP too. He used to be a folk musician a long time ago. But he continues to make great music with different style. I understand that sense. My music is still like folk music, in this LP. But I am already aiming for music that does not resemble other music. It may be the different experimental music than experimental music which already became stylistic beauty. But I do not want to focus on experiments alone. In the lyrics of the LP I do my best of my imagination. And that lyrics let me make handmade sleeves. I spent more than a years time for recording. I am glad if you like my music that avoided compromise." - Aritomo.

Title: La Flor De Mi Tupla
Format: LP
Label: Hakanairo
Country: Japan
Price: $26.00
"This is my 6th LP, but I wish this LP will be my 5th LP. I released my last LP in the beginning of 2011. Honestly, it was a failure. My 5th LP was not good music. Therefore I threw away all stock of my last LP soon. And I deleted it from my discography. If you bought it, Im sorry.
Anyway, I had to recover myself from the failure, for my solo works. But in the first half of 2011, the world has begun to be out of order. It is the phenomenon that I and some many people were cautious of. However, of course the tragedy affected my sensitivity. Even if I guessed it. And I have begun to make up my mind to have to make really splendid music. I was satisfied about music from the middle of 2011. I continued participating in recording of Mamitori Ulithi empress yonaguni sans 3rd LP. I remain the guitarist of the band more than ten years. The recording was a splendid experience. I learned many things there. About rhythm, chord, and anything important... The LP became one of best splendid music in the world. It is my pride. We released it in 2012. The experience had a big influence on my new LP, even if it do not resemble my music. Next, I released a VA LP by my label in 2013. The LP was titled "Esperanza de OTO". I planned the LP and collected songs of many artists. I was concerned with a great variety of music. It was the good experience. Mamitri Ulithi empress yonaguni sans 3rd LP and the VA LP were sold a lot in Japan and UK and USA. If you listened to each, I thank you.
It is important that oneself always change little by little, for artist. I learned it. And I made my music that do not resemble other music very much. Of course I continue coming under influence of much music, Pops, South American Rock and Folk, etc... yet.
However, my music is not those complete imitation, this time. Because the music does not resemble other music very much, some listeners may not understand its good point. However, my pride will not shake, this time. Because I made the album of my best masterpiece, I made handmade sleeves of my best masterpiece too. Please enjoy it too. P.S. I recorded the music by only analog machines like my other LPs. I dont use any digital machines and any compresser. So if you feel that the volume of the music is small, please raise the volume of the sound of your audio system." - Aritomo.

Title: Esperanza de OTO 2
Format: LP
Label: Hakanairo
Country: Japan
Price: $22.00
"I released my best masterpiece LP "La Flor De MI Tulpa" in 2014. Because it was extremely splendid music, I wanted to pile up many other experience before beginning my music of the next. Experience that is interesting for new idea is necessary. I just enjoyed live performance of splendid rock band "Aka" frequently, at that time. Because I wanted to listen to music of Aka by vinyl, I started the plan of Espernaza De OTO Vol.2 immediately. And I have begun to look for artists who offer splendid music.
"Midorita Rokunotake" is a great SSW in Fukuoka-ken Japan. He has very beautiful voice. And Tadasuke Iwanaga (The leader of mamitori Ulithi empress yonaguni san) plays drums and other instruments in Midoritas song.
Bicho Pablo is a genius Chilean SSW. He recorded many albums so far. However, he is still not well known because he doesnt release physical release so far. We can listen to his song on turntable by this LP! Rin Eric is a great SSW in California. Because he likes my LP "La Flor De Mi Tulpa" very much, we did collaboration this time. I attached some instruments and backing vocal to his song.
Kenji Kariu is the leader of the progressive jazz rock band "OWKMJ". He recorded his solo song. It is a nice pop song. "Aka" is a great rock band in Nagoya city Japan. They do the performance that is very pure, and is beautiful.
"Mamitori Ulithi empress yonaguni san" is the band who included me. All members except me are geniuses. They released their 3rd LP that is a best masterpiece LP of the world, in 2012. And Bruit Direct Disques released their live LP recently because their 3rd LP is really great. Their unreleased song is included in this V.A LP.
"Bon Voyage" is a mystery artist. I recorded his beautiful acoustic guitar by my reel to reel tape deck.
"Munca" is a great Bolivian musician. He has nice senses of melody and arrangement. He recorded new song for this V.A LP. "Aritomo" is me. I recorded 2 songs for this LP.
This LP has hand-made sleeve and 5 info sheets that are about each artist. If you get any nice sense when you listen to this LP, I am glad." - Aritomo

Artist: HALANA
Title: #4
Format: Mag/CD
Label: Halana
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"Everything about this arty American New Music zine squeals quality, from its ridged cardboard, metallic-inked cover and enduring paper-stock, to the hefty price tag. But your bucks include a CD with tracks by Rafael Toral, Sun City Girls founder Richard Bishop, id battery, Motoharu Yoshizawa, plus a piece by David Tudor and more�??all of which feature in the mag. Opening with a brilliant, often scary travelogue by Richard Bishop (from spontaneous busking sessions in Morocco to self-induced vomiting in Calcutta), we get a long and fairly boring Joe Maneri Q&A; a piece on Portuguese guitarist Rafael Toral (just a monologue distilled from a long e-mail correspondence); memoirs of Yoshizawa and Tudor from various acquaintances, preciously poetic notes on location recording from id batterys Loren Chasse; and endless split columns of CD reviews. But the real gem here is the feature on little known American renaissance man (and pretender to Harry Smiths crown in the realm of eccentric sonic research) Ralph Haxton, who has had at least three groups including Californias rhBand, named after him."�??

Artist: CARTER, TOM
Title: Numinal Entry
Format: LP
Label: Halatern, etc.
Country: Italy
Price: $26.00
This is the second release from the Halatern, Etc. label, run by Keith Connolly (of NNCK/No Neck Blues Band fame). "Tom Carter requires no introduction (those who are curious are encouraged to visit the historically rich wholly-other.com). Of late, his Kazuyuki K. Null meets Franco Falsini excursionary instrumentalism has taken on an increased luminosity, due in no small part to some unexpected time spent at a certain house on the borderland. In his own words: "Information-inscribed ribbons unravel from a spool spinning into relaxed entropy. Floating smoke-scrap phrases dissolve before the awakening namer; whispers of causation refute a dozen irreal plot lines, showering text onto re-emergent reality as a deeper narrative retreats to a place hidden from scrutiny. I am awake, and you are here with me. Holding our hands before our eyes we stare skyward, light leaking through our fingers, rays shift and rearrange as we flex our fingers. The beams emanate from within, not without; the light pours out of our eyes, animating all we see, bearing the unbearable heat in us. These memories intertwine with reality in a way thats impossible to parse. One night not so long after my return, I attempted to transcribe them in the only sensical way, via degenerating melodic and harmonic arcs, free of the inevitable collapse of language. These recordings are the result." The recordings he speaks of comprise Numinal Entry, the second LP released by Halatern, etc. The sounds contained therein offer a glimpse of something slightly outside of living experience, something slowly holy, and something eternal. Edition of 300 copies." - Halatern, etc.

Artist: CLYD, KYLE EYRE
Title: Pale Dawn Creeps
Format: LP
Label: Halatern, etc.
Country: USA
Price: $26.00
This is the first release from the Halatern, Etc. label, run by Keith Connolly (of NNCK/No Neck Blues Band fame). "Is it the sight of death, the thought of saying? What sinks us deeper into melancholy: sexual incompleteness or its spastic conclusion? What seems to line our life with satin? What brings the rouge to both our cheeks? Loneliness, emptiness, worthlessness, grief... each is an absence in us. We have no pain, but we have lost all pleasure, and the lip that meets our lip is always one-half of our own. Our state is exactly the name of precisely nothing, and our memories, with polite long faces, come to view us and to say to one another that we never looked better; that we seem at last at peace; that our passing was... well -- sad -- still -- doubtless for the best (all this in a whisper lest the dead should hear)" --William Gass, from On Being Blue. Kyle Clyd is of an orphaned ascendancy, more Geeshie Wiley or Anne Gillis than any of her visible peers. In talking about Pale Dawn Creeps, her debut full-length, she refers a kind of blues, itself perhaps a mercurial essence resigned to antiquity: "To believe that the bits of paper in your pocket have real value or to take the word for the thing itself is the unpardonable sin of the New Testament. Those guilty are condemned to blackness. Black manifests in the instant the accusatory finger is lifted, or guilty hand raised, but blue is not so easily won. Blue is not a second coming, but its denial -- our shortcomings hovering in the dead air of judgments lag." While certainly not blues in the traditional (read: idiomatic) sense, Pale Dawn Creeps depth-of-shallows abstraction belies an unmistakable lyricism and almost sing-song vacancy that is something of a cipher, asking where, when it has all been said, do songs really come from? Edition of 300 copies." - Halatern, Etc.

Artist: CACCIAPAGLIA, ROBERTO
Title: The Ann Steel Album
Format: LP
Label: Half Machine
Country: UK
Price: $20.00
Repressed. "Roberto Cacciapaglia is an Italian electronic composer whos made albums using every possible permutation of the same six notes, right up to modern classical, with The Ann Steel Album as the weird anomaly. Made with an American model who moved to Italy to make it big in fashion, Roberto took her languid, Laurie Anderson-esque voice and created a detached futurist popstar. The odd sound of these European futurist pop songs make it sound like the machines are breathing, creating a weird organic/electronic rhythm section. It has to be heard to be believed. With fans ranging from Geologist and Avey Tare from Animal Collective, Deerhunters Bradford Cox and Banjo or Freakout/Walls mainman Alessio Natalizia. The first time this album has been on vinyl since its initial small pressing in the 70s." -Half Machine.

Title: Rank Sonata
Format: LP
Label: Hallow Ground
Country: Switzerland
Price: $27.00
Edition of 300. "Colin Potter has been a central figure in the UKs DIY and post-industrial underground since the late 70s. His ICR label, founded in 1981, blurred the lines between post-punk experimentation, crude pop, Krautrock-inspired drone work and contemporary electronica, with releases by everyone from DIY legends The Instant Automatons through Chris & Cosey of Throbbing Gristle, experimental composer Trevor Wishart, drone soundists Andrew Chalk and Darren Tate and Bryn Joness Muslimgauze. He has also been a key collaborator with both Current 93 and Nurse With Wound, working in the studio with both groups since the late 90s as well as serving as a member of Nurse With Wounds current live line-up. From the late 90s to the late 00s Potters IC Studio, based in a Victorian Water Tower outside Preston, was a lightning rod for musicians working beneath the radar and a focal point for the nacsent UK drone scene" --David Keenan, Red Bull Music Academy Daily, March 31, 2015. Rank Sonata encloses sounds of organic techno, somnambulistic dub, and dream-ambient. The nearly-20-minute track "A Wider Pale of Shale" sounds absolutely timeless, with an interplay between ambient and beat-driven passages that could play all night long. With "You," Potter brilliantly weaves abstract sounds into an unexpected multi-layered dub track. The deep, slow reverb-rhythm of "Knit Where?" gives the record a touch of darkness and melancholy. Rank Sonata is a brilliant piece of music full of technical sophistication and innovation." - Hallow Ground.

"Robin Crutchfield cofounded the experimental no-wave art band, DNA, and later collaborated with varied artists (including Steven Brown of Tuxedomoon and filmmaker Jim Jarmusch) in the guise of his DARK DAY project. His new solo explorations have been described by Devendra Banhart as "beguiling, powerful, hypnotic, mesmerizing, commanding, delicately unnerving, lilting, mellow," and "tense as hell." A tiny treasure box from a lost garden, this album finds Robin further exploring his unique world; one of delicate harp compositions, glissando & deep drones.

Mike Seed 7 Language of Light bring a collection of songs drifting from the downright dark & haunting to the decidedly wyrd-folk. Seed creates lyrics imbued with a profound sense of introspection & occult mystery in melodies reminiscent of English folk ballad or early liturgical hymns.

"What we have here is a brand new single from Louisville, Kentuckys long-running underground collective Sapat. “L&N” and “Payne Hollow Stomp” were recorded in 2005 at the same sessions that produced the groups 2007 Siltbreeze Records LP Mortise and Tenon, about which Dusted said: “While blowing all limp pretensions clean out of the water and across several state lines, this octet manages a multi-genre juxtaposition that never once sounds forced.” “L&N” is a slow-burning elegy on the Louisville & Nashville Railroad (1850-1982), a soundtrack for the contemplation of what we can and cant leave behind. “Payne Hollow Stomp” picks up speed and condenses the density of the A side, moving from the rails to an open road or better yet the rolling Ohio River on which sits Payne Hollow, the simple waterfront homestead of Harlan and Anna Hubbard (1900-1988; 1902-1986), two exemplary Ohio Valley post-Thoreau, pre-Back-to-the-Land simple-life seekers.

Alan is a member of Sapat, KARK, Valley of Ashes, and Boogie Brothers, and is featured on recordings by Rachels and Jackie-O-Motherfucker. He records and performs solo under several pseudonyms, including Arsenio, Raw Thug, and Arthur Kalow. Aaron Rosenblum performs in Sapat, KARK, Son of Earth, Shackamaxon (with members of Double Leopards and Magik Markers), and Pleasant Colony, and has been a guest member of Wooden Wand and the Vanishing Voice, Sunburned Hand of the Man, and the Cherry Blossoms. He also performs and records under his own name and runs the Hank the Herald Angel Recordings label ( www.hankrecordings.com). Their debut CDr features a slightly condensed record of a single days improvisations on electronics, percussion, trombone, and strings." - Hank the Herald Angel Recordings.

Title: Man in Revolt
Format: Cass
Label: Hank the Herald Angel Recordings
Country: USA
Price: $6.50
"When checking if I wrote about Matt Krefting before, I came to the sad conclusion I didnt. Which is odd, since hes closely connected to my beloved Idea Fire Company. Krefting is also a member of many other bands, such as Son Of Earth, Duck, Itchy Pits, The Believers, Destroyer and many more. He plays everything, everywhere and with everyone. Man In Revolt is the total opposite: hes alone at the piano, plus perhaps a bunch of electronics, most likely guitar effects. These are kept however to a minimum, as the main thing is the piano. Its an utter lo-fi, hiss covered tape, but no doubt its intended to be like that. Minor keys are played, while the sustain pedal is pressed down hard to add that darker texture to the music. On the B-side there is a short track Forgets Breakfast which is made with fog horns (or so it seems). Its a great release, along the lines of the recent Graham Lambkin CD, or even Organums recent work (Amen). A pity that its on cassette and not CDR - maybe I could ask for a re-issue?" - FdW, Vital Weekly.

This new release contains, in their original entirety, the Seizure CDR released by Hanson and the Appalling & Alive 3" CDR released by Chondritic Sound. Hound Dog Guy Still Alive Boggs? What the fuck is that? Its a lake filled with witch urine, the real scary type. Three parts expired turpentine, two parts glow-in-the-dark ghost pee & the murky rest filled the reel to reel scrape dust from a light-free candled basement. The soundtrack? This Brighton-born-alien-bird-celled-creature, Aaron Dilloway. Dudes intense, but drunk in a moldy cellar you can tip him upside down to get the change he owes you. Awesome sounds/primitive shit that smart types try to capture in academic wooden hideaways but end up sounding like Paul K & Weathermen. He is for real. These tracks lead to goblin hell that is a broken train built on years of instinct, beer, horror & intimacy. His tape & electronic work is nearly peerless, save for Santa Claus Black Gnome label cassette catalog. Pumping this serious Michigan shit on a half-mooned night will result in your blood planning a meeting to infect your brain with a mock party of jellied-filled balloons that when popped, turn your sanity into a maggot feeding frenzy while singing backwards to a Pepsi half-time ad. Seriously! These transparent audio diaries have been originally released in different forms. Who cares? Count your fingers instead. In life you have two choices: Stop and Be Rad or Stop Being Rad. Aaron Night Fighter Dills been doing his own thing since shorts were baggy & Stephen King was the master musician of horror. Be happy you have two rare boys in one bomb package. Spend the rest of your heart-blood pumping time searching for the third Los Tammies wax while getting to the bottom of Boggs Vol. 2 human tape message time eating symphonies. A one-man stereo Desert Barn Stormer. The only & best people person of horrible noise. I should know, I have been in nearly every possible good & bad situation with him from rock fights, underage beer blowouts, and 13 years in basements. A mangy man of many talents, hear the one in your claw-fist then check out our funk band Stupid Goose. You can wave at the UPS guy but he is still gonna deliver a box of razor babies to you.

Title: Chain Shot
Format: CD
Label: Hanson
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"With only tape loops, metal, and horns (and sometimes, it seems, metal on horns) the two side long pieces, Chain Shot and Execution Dock respectively, explore the ugly underbelly of noise before just scraping right through and aiming for the insides. In a genre that has quickly turned into a broad and often inaccurate description of a certain breed of every-man experimental music, Dilloway sticks to the old-fashioned definition of noise, doing battle with the materials in front of him as he continues the construction of his impressive body of work. Dilloway, a former member of noise-titans Wolf Eyes, has recently been releasing solo work that explores much more abstract and thoughtful terrain than his previous groups onslaughts. Chain Shot is more a sound collage than anything, and while it is a heaping glob of muddled debris, it is also a highly controlled one. Looping samples on top of samples, Dilloway builds a slowly encroaching beast before slowly disintegrating it, bone by bone. This is some highly textural and immediately emotive soundscape work. Execution Dock begins with a repeating loop of what sounds like the beginning and the end syllables of some nuts conversation with a lamppost. In the distance sounds a pained song of sorts, like a rodents death cry, or maybe its birth one. Im guessing maybe this is the horn, though it would be tough to be certain about much of anything here. Delayed creaks and groans float in and around as the vocal sample dissipates, leaving you sloshing through the mud puddle only to realize that its a tar pit the size of La Brea."-HENRY SMITH, http://earconditionednightmare.blogspot.com/ DIGIPAK CD reissue of my CHAIN SHOT LP which was originally released on LP by THRONE HEAP.

"...an amazing LP, with low-level battlefield tectonics and the sound of smeared and tortured magnetic tape coming over like a rusty, Industrial scale take on classic 20th century minimalism. Some of Dilloways most barbarously vacated drone work here, with intense low-level fireworks reduced to inchoate shadow plays and rolling, planetary scale hypnotics. Then there are moments of glissing, echoing metal tones coming out of silence, suddenly morphing into sad feedback chorales ala Eliane Radigues early workings but with a crude, lonely aspect that is extremely affecting. One of Dilloways most personally expressive tone works with intensely sad feedback drones circling wraiths of clanking magnetic tape." ---David Keenan, Volcanic Tongue.

"Starting out in 2005, performing live sets using only television sets as sound sources, Emeralds has grown in recent years into a monster of HEAVY improvised drone using analog synths and masterfully-effected guitar. Born out of the Midwest scum-noise scene, these guys have taken the intense heaviness of their Midwest brethren to a place that is entirely their own. They have replaced the creepy atmosphere and abrasive harsh noise of their peers with a very different, though equally intense blast of cosmic drone power! Hanson Records is proud to announce Emeralds Solar Bridge, the trios first full-length album after numerous cassette and CD-R releases on such labels as American Tapes, Chondritic Sound, and the bands own imprints Wagon and Gneiss Things. "The album opens with the side-long Magic where the band builds a quiet drone into an extreme thick saw blade of swirling noise as beautiful as it is menacing. The flip is yet another side-long journey titled The Quaking Mess, a track that stabs your brain with fluttering sparks of synthesized needles before relaxing you into a Göttschingesque dream state while slowly bringing you back to earth with an electronic wave of molten rumble. Fans of the smooth tones of New Age Of Earth-era Ash Ra Tempel and the buzzing thick drones of Throbbing Gristles Heathen Earth should take note, as Emeralds may be their new source for electronic drugs."-Hanson.

Artist: HATERS, THE
Title: In The Shade Of Fire
Format: CD
Label: Hanson
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"Hanson Records is proud to present the first LP from The Haters, In The Shade Of Fire, reissued for the first time on the CD format and for the first time in its original entirety. Originally released on LP by Silent Records in 1986, this digipak CD edition has been remastered by Warn Defever from the original master reels, and includes the full complete album as two of the tracks had to be shortened to fit on the original LP issue. Back during my Bachelor of Fine Arts, one of my fellow students was a woman who was eventually obsessed with the idea, systems, and eventual remnants of process. One of her key pieces involved hundreds of raw eggs which she carefully emptied, cracked open, and systematically peeled the delicate membranes from inside of the eggs. She carefully laid out the hundreds of membranes as they assembled in a giant area to the side of the studio. I swear that she didnt even have some grandiose idea for the membranes as the peeling and assemblage system(s) evolved into something that was simply beyond any eventuality and initial idea for the piling skins of the eviscerated eggs. The deconstruction and conception behind the act of pulling apart the eggs into a vast collection of grimy, translucent membrane piles suggested something so much more than even a final constructed piece. Watching her as she realized that the true crux behind the piece was the process alone was astounding as the membranes were laid to rest to represent an almost sudden and powerful eventuality that acted as a piled testament to process. The harsh sound works of The Haters over artist GX Jupitter-Larsens long and established career also powerfully bring to mind the idea of process. Most of The Haters works are ideologies behind something being destroyed or manipulated; the amplified and sometimes distorted sounds of the processes representing a document that exemplifies the acts carried out upon the objects, machines, or otherwise. The act of recording the processes alone is evidence of an eventuality (to possibly be edited further) in the form of a possible final piece of vinyl, cassette, or CD, but the tendencies of The Haters material also intend the listener to experience the process of the audio lines as they were primarily constructed in the recording area. There is no doubt that GX appreciates the totemic quality of his personal objects physical aftermath, that is sometimes documented with video or photographs, but the powerful beauty of a The Haters audio piece is the experience for the listener that acts ALSO as a final document of sound that represent clearly the certain idea and sometimes violent act. The Haters celebrated early work In the Shade of Fire acts a document collection for the listener that also reflects The Haters strong textural aesthetic through object manipulation and recording that defines GXs place in the world of harsh noise. Listening your way through the material is a studied and defined testament to different representational fragments of heavy sound and source manipulation. The tracks Glsam and Diti are explosive introductory and side concluding / framing pieces that highlight and pronounce the breaking and crashing down of material, all gelled with bass driven strikes whose trails deteriorate into hints of cascading dirty and dark Americanoise distortion. Bebas powers through a heavier dynamic with conscious falling apart of source material, but in abstracted waves that suggest the material being rebuilt just to simply fall and crash apart again with a sense of powerful futility. Thuch enhances the textural elements of the explosions and crashing as the sharpness of the strikes are slightly rounded at the edges to expose an almost gurgling texture that moves and slaps with vicious perplexity. Taisic represents a very early Americanoise study of hiss manipulation that is accented with minimalist scraping that bring to mind the force of process on top of the white noise line. Cassas is the albums meditated example of sharp shot-driven violence; articulated and seemingly layered for optimum cutting and breaking which bring forth sound dynamism from very physical deterioration. Fire 5 is an amazing example of a highly textural wall of sound that, to the contemporary fan of gritty and dirty crunch waves, is a primary early example of powerful crackle lines that focus on the inner dynamism of the sound itself. All of the material discussed above is made up of elements of physicality and process, but the tracks Iny 1 and Iny 2 act, for the listener, as the notes for the ideology of process and falling apart as they act as a more minimal, subtle, and exacting study of the scraping, scuffing, and hands on work of the artist as he manipulates the deteriorating materials. In essence, Iny 2 is an amazing concluding track that reminds the listener of the core focus and ideology behind The Haters exemplification of grating sound via concept driven manipulation of tangible sources, the process, the aftermath, and the eventual recording that reflects all of the above sound qualities." -Sam McKinlay

Mine has a really big queen in the center telling me to keep watching The Thing (remake) with the sound off in a super warm birth room while listening to Death Tone on a dying Walkman. I dont listen to the queen, or take advice.

They gave me a show...a KILLER show... were talkin 3 fuckin king cobras dancing at once, while a giant boa chilled at the side and few other random lil snake dudes are wigglin around here and there. I became obsessed. I had met my new best friends... Though the kind of best friends you have to pay to hang out with. They were hustlers, yes.. But thats their job... The money was well worth the shows. I spent about 3-4 days a week for the next 2 months, recording their music and their snake shows on mini-disc and videotape. I Drank alot of chiyaa with them, smoked alot of cigarettes and bidis. They taught me how to make reeds out of bamboo, and I traded them some clothes for a snake charming horn. They call them Beens, they are also known as Pungis. These guys were the best. At the end of April they left Kathmandu, heading to Pokhara, after that it was time for them to head back home with their earnings. Man...I missed them. This LP is the BEST OF THE BEST of the recordings I made of them. There are some classic Bollywood tracks, a Nepali folk song, and side 2 is a 19 minute drone journey into the head of the KING COBRA. The recordings were done in stereo. A been on the left, a been on the right. A premtal (stringed percussion instrument) on the left, a premtal on the right. The stereo recording of the charmers sway creates a very disorienting stereo tremelo effect. Its almost as if YOU are the SNAKE! These tracks were recorded in an alley. There is the occasional rumble of a car passing by, and the low murmer of the locals checkin out the white kid with the fancy gadget hangin with the snake dudes. So here it is... pressed on wax, with a kickass silkscreaned cover.... THE SOUNDS OF THE INDIAN SNAKE CHARMER!!" -Aaron Dilloway, September 2005. CD issue of the LP.

Recorded in 2009 by sisters Roxann and Rachal Spikula while in a hospital doing some fucked up health study where all they could drink was Shasta for like 2 weeks. No joke! Master tape arrived wrapped in a duct-taped hospital gown with my address written on it in sharpie. Side A: The tape becomes un-paused and kicks in with a menacing organ drone that mutates into the lo-fi skree of an empty room, eventually becoming a swirling abyss of tape hiss and the sound of nothing happening in a hospital; distant creaks, buzz, and hums littered with hiss and garbage-sound layered into a very unsettling frenzied drone. Side B: A crunchy noise inferno that eventually leads us to what sounds to me like being in outer space watching the earth exploding. As you watch everything we know of destroyed, a saddening, descending synth wave appears, buried by blasts of destroyed earth. It ends...and you are disturbed. Limited to 300 copies. Pitch black vinyl with pitch black labels. Heavy duty black and silver silkscreened covers with the Hanson Droll Flaps.

"Although I was not yet aware of the extent to which casinos tailor their environments for maximum comfort (and, correspondingly, profit), I did know as I crossed the threshold of my first casino floor earlier this year that it would not be my last visit. Hit by a cornucopia of slot machine tones, triggering aleatorically and coalescing into shimmering masses, I was struck by the need to return and record the sounds that so entranced me. It wouldnt prove to be easy--casino security is intense (you can hear me get warned of the consequences of taking photos at the beginning of the discs second track)--and due to the clandestine nature of the operation, my recording techniques were by no means sophisticated. Equipped with nothing but an Olympus LS-11 recorders internal microphone stashed in a sweaty coat pocket, I allowed the lure of the zone to guide me through a series of ambling recording sessions over a period of four months, the best of which are included here. I learned a lot about casino sonics in the process: game designers, for example, tune their machines to the key of C in order to optimize harmonic cohesion; one team of designers, the story goes, even spent a month perfecting a single ding sound on one machine. In the interest of preserving the true ambient sounds of the casino these recordings are completely untreated, but lost in the sea of chance I did exert some affirmative control by means of meandering intent and my actual playing of the machines. And by participating in the games myself I got a taste of the financially debilitating consequences that accompany the enchantment of video gambling. The disc in your hands represents my endeavor to bring you the zone experience without the harsh comedown of its unfortunate reality." - Adrian Rew.

"For 19 evil years this thing has been waiting to unleashed. Slated for release in 1985 on Ecstatic Peace this historical document finally sees the dark of night. A friend of mine by the name of Anton LaBaise was an Ecstatic Peace completist. When my band Universal Indians was asked to open for Sonic Youth - Anton said "You have to ask Thurston about Satan Place!!". Many of you may remember seeing this title listed in EP ads back in the day. Thurston said it had never been released and asked if Id be into putting it out. I agreed!! So he had his bud Byron Crowley dig it up in the Ecstatic Yod archive and mail it to me. That was about 4 or so years ago. So finally my slack ass has gotten around to dubbing these things off!!! So what is Satan Place?? Satan Place is a 70 minute interview conducted in 1985 by a man known only as "Phantom Tollbooth" with a group of Satanist Teenagers from upstate New York. What he uncovered is unbelievable... shocking tales of rituals consisting of eating live frogs; drinking urine mixed with oil; sex; drugs; Ozzy and Dio; and other hideous acts which must be heard to be believed. They have guitars too! And there is 20 minutes or so that sound much like Bruce Russell waiting around for the other dudes to show up at a Dead C practice. What we have here is a very important document exploring the twisted minds of the Satanist Teenager of the 1980s. Recorded just a few short miles away from where Satanic teen Ricky Kasso butchered his freind over a bad Angel Dust deal. This is a frightning recording. Recomended only to those with a strong mind and stomache. Ltd to 100 selfish copies." - Hanson.

Heath man....dude aint really gonna give any clues back....cant count how many timez the crew has cornered the mug and been like: "Yo man....what the hell is going on inside "Live Birth"?

And repeat over the coarse of 120+ Fag Tapes, Heaths label AKA the Pyramids of Michigan. He never has properly answered a sound question, we all have our clues/ideas.. Probably wrong. Sick Llama holds the rotten essence of Midwest Basement Mystery Mind Sound inside the marrow of his weird skull, right behind the strawberry blond tuffs, unblinking bug eyes, and scandi-molded mildew skin. Born Again to Die is his debt, and any signs of progression are tossed out the windows of Ham Studios. I mean its electronics, tape hiss, and ....?????? Heath really doesnt get any better or more refined, just....... stranger AKA more strange. My man Connelly says every Fag Tape has at least a 30% "hands off" factor, meaning, seems like Llama has a nice mutant groove going on and then just jets for 10min, leaving the machine motionless. If you can tell what the hell is going on inside these grooves...bottle it and sell it, it would be ideal to have on tap.......it could be like taking a skinny dip inside the caverns of a black pool filled to the brim with soul-frying electricity waves.

Wyatt Howland aka Skin Graft has been blasting his crude noise in the filthiest Cleveland basements and scum punk bars every two or three nights a week for the past five or so years. He has a knack for writhing in the filthy underbelly of sound using junk metal, field recordings and primitive electronics. Dystrophy is complete audio horror texture pulverizing harsh sounds of fluttering static, feedback and crushed metal. This is the sound you hear when you are stuck upside down in the backseat of a hit and skidding car. Just horrible sounds! The complete opposite to the sounds of his past collaborators Emeralds and Bee Mask. Whereas they have aimed for outer space Skin Graft has aimed himself head first into a shitty old Cleveland gutter.

"Astral Social Club is the current project of Neil Campbell, formerly of the Vibracathedral Orchestra, Sunroof!, The A Band and many more which has given tremendous impact and influences throughout the 2000s to numerous audience and artists. Campbell has been active since the early 80s, and The Wire magazine has said that, along with his friends Richard Youngs and Matthew Bower, he "provided the map co-ordinates for much of what passed for a post-punk UK underground during most of the 80s and 90s". With Astral Social Club, Campbell continues his quest to produce a truly vast 21st century psychedelic music, using alien electronics, overloaded strings, loop disorientation and rhythmic grids often more readily associated with the far end of dance music. "HAPPY HORSE" is a 7-piece, hour-long suite focussing on the more ecstatic, dilated side of ASCs music. Kicking off with a reworked version of the super-limited "Skelp" 7", the propulsive beats and tone float is ceaseless, in the manner of a DJ mix tape from some parallel universe. Sure, there are huge tracts of techno thud underpinning many of the tracks, as on "Horse Cortex" (a distant cousin to "Clarion super-cortex" from the acclaimed ASC/ALog split 12" on fat-cat records), but they dont mind sliding into delerious inaudibility when the free-flying celestial sonics really get into their stride. Although Astral Social Club is largely a solo project, "Happy Horse" includes sonic input from regular ASC collaborators John Clyde-Evans, Phil Smith, Paul Walsh and Stewart Keith." -Happy Prince

"-Working partly with atonal playing techniques, Volker Hormann creates a kind of impressionistic program music on this 7". The title track provides an audible jungle atmosphere, made with several layers of fx-pedaled guitars. Everythings there: the trees in the wind, animals and whatnot. Hen Music, the first track on the b-side is inspired by the way chickens move and search for food. The thing is, what Hormann really does here is creating free rhythmic structures and hilarious, picturesque sounds that leave much space for endless association. Oswaldo, the lyrical second track on the b-side comes up with an entirely different, pretty melodic approach. Played on a regular concert guitar, this song moves in between minor harmonies and the rough and cold sounds the steel strings produce. What a highly interesting contrast..." - Happy Zloty.

"This vinyl only release is the first in German label Happy Zlotys limited edition Splitting Series. Its a similar idea to the Fat Cat series of 12"s-the two improvising trios Perlonex and Julijuni are each given a side apiece. Perlonex are Ignaz Schick on various objects, turntables etc, Jörg Maria Zeger on guitar and Burkhard Beins on percussion, all musicians who are active in various other improvising contexts. The Perlonex side begins with a drone and delicate, looping guitar arpeggio before heading into a post-industrial, post-AMM landscape full of feedback, clanking chains and unidentifiable scrapes and thuds. The piece gathers density as it moves along, becoming a thickly matted assembly of sounds, with a guitar loop as a constant. Perlonex are a cohesive unit and they all pull in the same direction when they play, producing a commited and intense piece of group communication. Julijunis sound sources are Powerbook, feedback and guitar, coming from Michael Rieken, Tim Tetzner and Ansgar Wilken respectively. Their three tracks are airier but less assured then the Perlonex side. As with Perlonex, recognisable guitar sounds are set against abstract, untuned noises. The music is light-footed and shifts readily from episode to episode. Their sense of space steers them away from thick textures. The guitar is again used gracefully but the laptop occasionally sound sluggish compared to the other sound sources. The music is fitfully engaging but none of the pieces quite hangs together as a fully on-the-boil performance." - WIRE, Will Montgomery, May 2004.

"Reissue of this scarce LAFMS title in digipack, limited to 500 copies. This album was originally recorded and released as an LP in 1978; Airway was a group featuring Joe Potts, Chip Chapman, Rick Potts, Dennis Duck, Juan Gomez and Tom Recchion. Live At Lacewas later included in the Cortical Foundation/RRR 10CD LAFMS box from 1995, but this version has been remastered, using the original tapes for the LP. It is considered to exhibit a "pretty different feeling of sound" and features unique artwork that was only used on Japanese-export copies of the LP when it was first released." - FE. Crucial early-noise document from the Los Angeles Free Music Society heyday. "AIRWAY is a brainchild of Joe Potts. Here are COMMANDMENTS OF AIRWAY: AIRWAY is a hole through which our conscious passes. Sound of AIRWAY is not an object. Sound of AIRWAY has no fixed location. Sound of AIRWAY has no fixed location. Sound of AIRWAY has no fixed meaning. Sound of AIRWAY has no dimensions. Meaning and dimensions of AIRWAY sound constantly change in relation to the universe inside and outside listeners. Sound of AIRWAY has no fixed time. The "flow of time" in AIRWAY sound is psychological not physical. Sound of AIRWAY is a representation of the whole of sound existing inside and outside us. Because all sound of AIRWAY is interrelated, there is no such thing as innovative sound at AIRWAY performance. Sound of AIRWAY is an unfolded manifestation of hidden (enfolded) universe, consisting of all sound which will ever exist and has ever consisted inside and outside us."

“My Descent into Capital represents the most ambitious recording to date from London-based duoCircuit Breaker. Even if theyre taking influence from minimal synth, post-punk, or early industrial sides, Circuit Breaker are unmistakably contemporary with their delivery, forging together metallic drum machines, propulsive synth lines, and stark guitar-degradation into bold, simple, and effective songs about downtrodden themes of isolation, discontentment, and the true horror of work. This album transgresses any simple nostalgia for its musical forefathers and showcases a band with their eyes fixed firmly on the future. Any obvious reference points are contorted and stretched to the point where they are transformed into something new. After ten years of obscurity since 2005 and a refusal to go away, and after two well-received releases on Tombed Visions, this is their first full-length album, and their first release on abstract-punk imprint Harbinger Sound; the album follows shows with Harbinger Sound mainstays Sleaford Mods and precedes an extensive tour with Consumer Electronics (2015 additions to Harbinger Sound).

Housed in a sleeve featuring stunning cover artwork by Tokyo-based artist Trevor Brown (creator of the iconic cover art for Whitehouses Halogen (DPROM 109LP, 1994) and Quality Time (1995), among others), Dollhouse Songs further chronicles frontman Philip Bests trawl through the seedy thoroughfares of crumbling Tory Britain. "Learn your fucking place," sneers Best, in trademark style, aping the austerity-mongers of Britains right-wing junta. Ably assisted on dark cracked electronics by Sarah Froelich and stunningly produced by noise/beat guru Russell Haswell, this installment in CEs state-of-the-nation polemics features seven studio tracks: "History of Sleepwalking," "Knives Cut," "Condition of a Hole," "Nothing Natural," "The Push," "Colour Climax," and "Murder Your Masters" (which surfaced briefly in 2015 as an ultra-rare tour-only 7" split with Sleaford Mods). CE now features a twin vocal attack from the Best/Froelich husband-and-wife team, with a furious tide of words spat out over a chaotic spew of mangled beats, bracing synths, and state-of-the-art noise generation.

Artist: DEBT OF NATURE
Title: Order : Spoil the Entire State
Format: LP
Label: Harbinger Sound
Country: UK
Price: $19.00
"An album of incredible archival recordings by Brad Laner and Jim Goodalls 1980s  noise orchestra. Featuring many other LAFMS superstars such as Rick Potts and Joseph Hammer , along with several unknown secret San Fernando Valley noise geniuses. An albums worth of epic spontaneous compositions created with tape recorders, short wave radios, cheap synths, random orchestral instruments and circuit bent gear and all unleashed in front of an unsuspecting audience.

"...we opened for WALL OF VOODOO and successfully pissed off 1000 screaming New Wave assholes"

Starting out back in August 1981 as Brad Laners solo project and self-confessed "pretentious art phase". It wasnt long before he started bringing friends , most notably Jim Goodall and Spencer Savage, and other players in and over the following years DEBT OF NATURE would expand into a much larger ensemble. Its those larger ensembles that are captured on this album with live recordings caught throughout the bands final two years. These tracks were originally programmed with a four 7" boxset in mind, but the flow of the pieces works just as well on the 12" format here.

Even though they only released a small number of cassettes throughout their lifespan, mostly on ARPH and Laners own Party Sound Tapes label. They appeared on numerous seminal Noise and Punk crossover compilations that emitted from Californias west coast on labels such as the Minutemens New Alliance imprint, New Underground, and Trance Port. Later other work appeared on Anomalous Records.Over the five to six years they existed the band played many shows throughout Los Angeles and up into the Bay Area.

DEBT OF NATURE is the starting block for both Laner and Goodalls musical trajectory that has now spanned three decades and taken in many points along the way. Both players recently resurfaced with a reformed MEDICINE , a band they formed who released material via Creation Records and Rick Rubins American Recordings. Prior to that they could be found alongside LAFMS mainstay Rick Potts and others in the STEAMING COILS. Laner was also a major player in FOURWAYCROSS and could be found at times in SAVAGE REPUBLIC, NERVOUS GENDER and many others.Jim Goodall would record for a number of years under the alias of D.D.DOBSON  and his violent electronic works can be found on numerous experimental noise labels. He also played as a member of WHITEHOUSE during their comeback tour of the USA during 1993.

Brad Laner was also a major contributor to the legendary experimental music magazine UNSOUND which will be the subject of an extensive  feature in the forthcoming As Loud As Possible #2 magazine. A second DEBT OF NATURE album capturing the bands earlier years is scheduled for release on Harbinger Sound sometime too." - Harbinger Sound.

"Harbinger Sound have been sitting for a long while now on a super-limited run of an LP recorded by my juvenille early 80s band ESP Kinetic. They’ve just told me the LPs are pressed, but awaiting “release” from the pressing plant, so perhaps these things will see the light of day this summer some time. No hurry, I suppose – some of this has waited nearly 30 years, so what are a few more months, eh? And what of the content of the LP? It’s called ”Want some of this?” (you don’t have to answer that question), it has a side of home recordings by myself and Andy Watson, recorded 1982-83, then another side of live chaos from 1984-85, where we were sometimes joined by our pals Dougie Smyth and John Larmour. It’s surprisingly varied... the LP continues in a fairly diverse way in varying grades lo/no-fidelity, including one longer track that appeared on Cause for Concern’s “Awareness is paranoia” compilation tape." – Neil Campbell, 2011.

“Decal Baby is a compilation featuring a selection of cuts from Leicesters Fish From Tahiti. The songs were recorded at the start of the 2000s and originally released on numerous 7"s by FFTs Dave Dixey on his own Sorted Records label. This set also contains a number of unreleased tracks recorded during the same period, including the unreleased fifth single. All the tracks feature FFTs trademark lo-fi sound of crazed loops and snatched samples all thrown together to create a drunken hypnotic haze. At times it is almost dubish, at others it ventures deeper into abstract experimental areas. Given Dave Dixeys career starting out in the late-70s with Fuck Off Records artists Anthrax For The People, running the legendary Alternative Capitalists cassette label and decades of promoting weirdness in Leicester,Decal Baby is a worthy salute to a forgotten group and your chance to catch up. Housed in a full color sleeve designed by the original Sorted Records graphics man -- Steve Lippert -- using images from the groups archives.

Format: LP
Label: Harbinger Sound
Country: UK
Price: $22.00
"Phil Julian is a UK-based sound artist, composer, and improviser active since the late 1990s, with a prolific output under both his Cheapmachines alias and his own name. His work encompasses sonic textures ranging from harsh squalls of noise to hyper-minimalistic timbres and drones. Studio recordings and live performances within Europe and North America have focused on the use of electronics, particularly unstable and/or chaotic systems, e.g. modular synthesizers, feedback, contact microphones, objects and surfaces, and computer-based works. Julian recorded TRACE at Elektronmusikstudion in Stockholm during his Guest Composer residency in 2013. Using a combination of EMSs vintage analog equipment and various computer processes, Julian recorded and mixed the material on TRACE specifically for diffusion over the Audiorama 17.4 surround sound system, custom built and installed inside the decommissioned torpedo workshop on Stockholms island of Skeppsholmen. "Open Form," which takes up the A side of the release, is made up of much shorter pieces recorded over the two week residency. "Corona" is an improvised piece using only analog electronics and "Arrival" uses a custom computer patch alongside a complex set of processes running on the huge EMS Buchla synthesizer. The recordings combine the dynamics and space associated with modern composition and electroacoustic works with the density and abrasive qualities more often encountered in noise and contemporary computer music.

"The second album from UK hardcore engine The Lowest Form, Personal Space sees the band cutting through a comedown fug of feedback, sharp butterfly-knife guitars flashing deadly over a waste-ground rubble of noise. Songs drawn up from discord, songs of marshalled cacophony, coils of scratching guitars break apart and reform, coalescing around insistent basslines and heavy drum-beats, before splintering again. Its hardcore constructed from textured noise as much as from break-downs and riffs, rumbling infectious chants emerging from the wavering clamour, the vile keening of consciousnesss half-known edges, noise in the grain of it all, noise as bedrock, an abrasive acid bath of fuzz, susurration and machine-whirr. The Lowest Form have brought together another LP of murdered-out panic attack punk, lithe and unleashed, born of bad vibes and background radiation, an album at once uncomfortably close and fully heavy." - Joe Briggs.

This record follows on and includes re-released songs from their cassette The Other (2015) and self-titled 7" (2016). With themes of social anxiety and isolation, feminist protest, and sanctuary in sisterhood, Nacthexens sound involves outsider occultist eeriness with classic punk ferocity and 80s post-punk and new wave catchiness. Reminiscent, at times, of Goblin, Gary Numan, and Siekiera, it also recalls the punchy attitude and hooks of women pushing punk forward in the late 70s and 80s, think Kleenex or Suicide Squad." - Harbinger Sound.

Label: Harbinger Sound
Country: UK
Price: $30.00
"As all Mother Savage tapes begin their transubstantiation into the new holy relics of Noise, one seldom-heard act still stands at a comfortable distance from the rest of the roster. A collaboration between Andy Bolus (Evil Moisture) and Mark Durgan (Putrefier), Olympic Shit Man divorced itself from the ultra-saturated, no-mind quest for pure filth by combining velocity and density while compromising neither. Most cut-up noise of the time buzzed your ears like a Stuka, uncatchable but lacking heft, while the harshest acts demolished all, but maneuvered like a tank in winter. Boluss EMS synth blurts and Durgans tactile junk scrapes capture the full spectrum of frequencies, while the pairs tape splicing strategies create asymmetric constructions that rattle around the room like a washer with an unbalanced spin cycle. As with the collaborations between Evil Moisture and Macronympha (The Tentacles of the Octopus Sometimes Compete Against One Another), Mlehst and Macronympha (Macrosonic), and Ruzensturn & Gurgelstock and Masonna (Arschloch-Onna), Olympic Shit Man is ferocious yet fleet, vibrant yet filthy, jaw-clenching yet hilarious. This vinyl reissue trisects the original cassette content into three 20 minute sides of vinyl, giving you an extra index point with which to process the mayhem. Side four includes two unreleased live tracks from 1994 and 2006, the first a fizzy, spastic sugar rush, the second a cascade of synth and toy squiggles that curlicue onto a wide canvas. Wrapped in a full-color jacket and including a 24-page Bolus comic book, Supercharge accomplishes what all reissues should: it doesnt just narrate epic battles of the past, it reintroduces all-but-forgotten combat tactics to a new generation of aural guerillas." - Harbinger Sound.

"Putrefier aka Mark Durgan has been an active member, albeit below the radar, of the U.K. noise scene since the inception of Putrefier back in 1986. Firstly, starting with his own Birthbiter label which as well as cassettes also was one of the first distribution services to start importing ZSF, Selektion and many Japanese oddities into the UK.  Keeping a low-profile has enabled Putrefier to work at his own pace and keeping to his own vision. Throughout the last twenty years records and cassettes have been limited but this latest release should be the start of a fresh outburst of activity. His recordings have turned up on labels such as Broken Flag, Artware, MSBR, RRR and more. This boxset though is the latest release on Harbinger Sound a label with whom he has had a working relationship with now for many years. It features the long out-of-print "Hypertension Classics" double 7" which was sold at shows in japan during the year 1999 only, plus over four hours worth of quality recordings dating back to 1996 but with most constructed during the 1999 - 2001 years. If you want pointers think of the possibilities of good Voice Crack,  the INA-GRM extremities & "Crash for Hi-Fi" -era Merzbow being dropped into a pinball machine ! Yes, it is that good !   After many shows alongside the likes of Ramleh, The New Blockaders, Merzbow, Pain Jerk, Incapacitants, MSBR, Thirdorgan, Emil Beaulieau.

"Proper working class music with an edge and a vitality, a wit and wisdom all of its own. Something that those stuck in a hopeless job can relate to and use as inspiration, something to shove right up the gaffers arsehole.
Jason Williamson writes the lyrics, Andrew Fearn mans the lap top, the pair of them share vocals with Williamson getting the lions share. Its a simple set up stripped to the basics, a hammering bass riff coupled to a series of rapid programmed beats. Its all you need. Everything is in the delivery though, lines are delivered in the northern vernacular, each line spat out in rapid succession, each song starts and ends the same, once the bass loop is there it pummels away until the song ends and then in a split second the next one takes its place. Fearn chips in with the odd line, theres the odd three note keyboard solo to fill in the gaps and thats about it.
Twelve tracks in all, each one destined for greatness. Urine Mate, Welcome To The Club sets the tone with a rap intro by local Forest lad John Paul that mentions the the cunts in the armed labelled coats, looking at me like they want to slit my fucking throat … anyway Im enjoying mesen before it all kicks off with the single word Spectre which will mean absolutely nothing to anybody living outside Britain, there are no apologies to those who can not unravel the inner workings of the northern working class language, this is as raw as its possible to get, no concessions are made, its one of their greatest strengths.
By now Im trying to think of comparisons, maybe the delivery of John Cooper Clarke, Steve Ignorant, Ian Dury, the pumping bass riffs of The Fall, the cheap synth beats of The Normal [as heard on Five Pound Sixty] but its the richness of the lyrics which linger. Some of it makes no sense at all, stream of consciousness, words repeated, wobble, wobble, wobble I dont like puddings…" - Idwal Fisher.

"Just about the most brutal and bleak LP weve ever released. Debut vinyl by Nottinghams finest.No compromise, no refunds. Please acquire with due caution : this is not an extreme electronics record !" - Harbinger Sound.

Title: Austerity Dogs
Format: CD
Label: Harbinger Sound
Country: UK
Price: $18.00
"Sleaford Mods started out sometime during 2006 while Jason Williamson was living in Nottingham. Born out of part frustration and part accident, it quickly found its feet as an aggressive verbal onslaught on all that is contrived and connected to the day-to-day hammer of low paid employment and domestic situations arising from that trap. After a year of working ideas out in both the studio and in live performance around Nottingham, Williamson moved south and took the cause to London for a couple of years, before returning to Nottingham in 2009. Soon after that he met Andrew Fearn and the Sleaford Mods became a duo. Fearns first work was on the production of Wank -- the Mods fifth CD-R album. Soon after, he started stalking the studio and stage with Williamson. Just after the release of Wank, the duo were invited to play a three-day festival curated by Nottinghams Rammel Club. During that weekend they were introduced to the Harbinger Sound label. A meeting which -- a year later -- resulted in the release of Austerity Dogs. Numerous shows around the UK and Europe followed, including further festival appearances. Rave reviews of the album have appeared in magazines as diverse as The Wire and Uncut, along with interviews being published both on paper and on the internet, both here and abroad. With more international dates on the horizon including excursions to Poland and Sweden, the interest in the Mods continues to spread." - Harbinger Sound.

While Fearns beats and loops will pull you up into the urgency of Sleaford Mods, they also allow you to run the gauntlet from deliberate clumsy dancefloor swaggers to full-on punk throwabouts with them. Williamson is let free to spit out his unempathetic litany of bile and anger towards the bloated and tedious." - Harbinger Sound.

"Divide and Exit sees Sleaford Mods once again released on the elusive Nottingham-based low-profile Harbinger Sound label. Once dismissed around their native Nottingham as "two skip rats with a laptop," the last 12 months has seen the Sleaford Mods simply knock all their distractors clear out of the way. The mounting hysteria surrounding their 2013 album Austerity Dogs (HARB 106CD/LP) has spread like chlamydia at a teenage house party and saw them topping many "End of Year" lists worldwide. Along with a handful of limited 7" releases on labels as diverse as Matador and X-Mist, plus an extensive European touring program have all helped to solidify their growing reputation as "ones to watch ." The Sleaford Mods duo of Jason Williamson and Andrew Fearn have also been busy throughout the year working on this follow-up album. Divide and Exit contains 14 new tracks all written over the last 12 months and the result is as immediately in your face as its vicious predecessor. While Fearns beats and loops will pull you up into the urgency of Sleaford Mods, they also allow you to run the gauntlet from deliberate, clumsy dancefloor swaggers to full-on punk throwabouts with them. Williamson is let free to spit out his litany of bile and anger towards the bloated and tedious. His verbal salvos and side-swipes are often savage and brutal, yet at turns, hilarious, but always spot-on as Sleaford Mods rage and despair as the country sinks deeper into a cesspool of its own idiocy. Its an album that doesnt have the privilege of luxury, indulgence or extravaganza and it will strike a resonant chord with many because it simply refuses to compromise. Many critics have attempted to tag and align the Sleaford Mods with other artists and have done little other than to advertise their own shortcomings and lack of knowledge. If you need a pointer, try and imagine an East Midlands take on Suicide that survived rave culture and looked to the Wu-Tang Clan for the escape hatch. The down-to-earth observations and story-telling of Ian Dury or Patrik Fitzgerald are maybe closer than any other names flung about in desperation. If you wish to tag and place Sleaford Mods, youre only limiting yourself." - Harbinger Sound.

“Nottingham duo Sleaford Mods present third "proper" album, Key Markets.

"My mum would take me there and Id always have a large Coke in a plastic orange cup surrounded by varnished wood trimmings and big lamp shades with flowers on them. Beige bricks with bright yellow points of sale and large black foam letters surrounded you and this is why we called the album Key Markets. Its the continuation of the day to day and how we see it, the un-incredible landscape." "The album was recorded in various periods between summer 2014 through to October of that year. We worked fast as we normally do, the method was the same as the other albums and like the other two, the sound has naturally moved itself along. Key Markets is in places quite abstract but it still deals heavily with the disorientation of modern existence. It still touches on character assassination, the delusion of grandeur and the pointlessness of government politics. Its a classic. Fuck em." Housed in a gatefold sleeve designed by Steve Lippert; mastered by Matt Colton at Alchemy. Everything else was done by Sleaford Mods.

This is an official releases done with the assistance of the band. This Australian group hold that much coverted legendary status with collectors of oddball DIY activity. It will catch the ears of those who can embrace abstract punk sounds or industrial harshness. To be filed alongside The Homosexuals, The Desperate Bicycles, The Instant Automatons, The Prats, Door and the Window, The Versatile Newts, etc etc. Avant / Post -punk madness that leave you scratching your skull . Noise historians will wonder over the use of Manson references, Burroughs samples and Anti-art manifestos way before the Industrial boys tried to claim them as their own." - Harbingersound.

The mood in places is austere, in others noisy, in some contemplative. This is their third release on Harbinger Sound -- after sharing one side of a split LP with BRB/Voicemail and having a single all to themselves, theyve finally got the LP they deserve.

“After having the NME announce him as "one to watch for 2015" Mark Wynn promptly quit music. Harbinger Sound spent the summer coaxing him out from early retirement and the result is "The Singles" album. A compilation of 18 tracks culled from two years worth of limited self-released CDs. Wynns scattershot avant-skank acoustic gobshitting blends despair, bleakness and humour. It then pulls apart any worthless comparisions to The Fall, Wreckless Eric, Patrik Fitzgerald, etc with his irreverent, awkward but smart lo-fi songs. After spending the autumn touring with the Sleaford Mods, Wynn is now back in the game as one to watch for 2016.

Stain on Pure Glass was commissioned by the 1993 AVE Festival at Arnhem, The Netherlands. I had been invited to present a sound installation at the festival that year (The dreaming of the earth continued into daylight”) they also wanted a piece to play on a radio show during the festival, and Stain on Pure Glass was created for that purpose. A 7 min excerpt of this piece was included on the compilation CD “Tape a break” released on the occasion of the fesival by AVE and Rund um den Watzmann. This is the complete version.
The Waking Of Leafy Pools presented here was recorded at Extrapool in Nijmegen during an evening also featuring Chop Shop and Kapotte Muziek (Frans, Peter, and probably also Roel Melkop). It was performed live without any pre-recorded material and recorded directly to a 2-track DAT machine (remember those?). This was a piece I did a lot back then, but this version was always one of my big favorites : first european tour, hanging out with Mr. CHOP and lots of other great folk, and a strange aleatory disfunctionment that created an unexpected and delightful change in the piece at one point… We were put up at Extrapool and slept in their little crows nest (the building is several storeys high, 4 or 5?, and the last storey is simply big enough for a mattress on the floor, and not enough room to stand up. I recall a sort of three-sided bay window that made up a lot of the wall surface so one was kind of projected out into the town below — it left a lasting powerful impression on us both, and we still talk of it with real fondness and nostalgia).
Small Cruel Partys work is focused on the inherent mysterious and beautiful quality of sound itself, with the emphasis on noninstrumental sound sources, the source itself not being readily apparent. Work generally involves manipulation of physical objects in acoustic space and a great deal of concentrated activity. Even in pieces involving dense sound at high volume the resultant effect is one of intense calm." - William Ransone.

Assimilating all the usual suspects of pre punk rock (Stooges, Velvets , Deviants etc etc) and adding their own rock n roll mantra of no-fi sci-fi fuzz and plucky faith in the riff. A classic 45 " Rocket to Nowhere" results in a vanity pressing of 200(100 with covers, 100 without, "Rocket to Nowhere" was cut on the same machine that cut the Kingsmens version of "Louie Louie" and so the Punk Rock continuum ) and then sinks into teen punk slime till 1979 when BOMP buys a few sleeveless copies off Dave "Moxie" Gibson . Johan Kugelberg and chums give the 45 a date of 1979 based on BOMP listing it at this point but it has been festering away in the vinyl graveyard for a couple of years at that point !!!! Recorded at the same 1975 session as "Rocket to Nowhere" - "Its My Movie" was thought "lost to the ages" until it was found miss labelled on a reel to reel tape. "Its My Movie" has the riff condensed to its purest essence .... a bludgeon of distorted guitar wails and spastic "funky "chimp drumming drags the song to its inexorable tape splitting finale !!!! Imagine all this and crowd noise sampled from Lou Reeds "RockNRoll Animal" Lp......WHOAH baby its a down right CLASSIC. Flip this baby over and you get the 1978 Quotas savaging Van The Mans anthem "G-L-O-R-I-A".No cool posing here just the spirit of freaked out over amped savagery is channelled and the Guitar Monster really does appear if you play this under a dead tree at midnight..I kid you not !!!!!!!

"I wanted to be more than just an observer. I wanted to be a part of what was going on. I had told someone and the word was out, and now I had to actually do this thing. Start a record label. I must have been drunk." - Roger Shepherd.

"Roger Shepherd was working in a Christchurch record shop when he realised the local bands he loved needed someone to make their records. Flying Nun was born.
Those records and the bands that created them – The Chills, The Clean, Chris Knox and the Tall Dwarfs, The Verlaines, Sneaky Feelings, The Bats, Straitjacket Fits and many more – went on to define an era and create what became known as “the Dunedin Sound”.
In truth it was less a unified sound than a spirit of adventure and independence that characterised the Flying Nun ethos. In this long-awaited memoir, label founder Roger Shepherd describes the idealism and passion that drove the project in the first place, the hard realities of the music industry, and the constant tension between art and commerce.
Filled with revealing anecdote and insight, this is the definitive insider history of the one of the most innovative and original record labels of the modern era."

Format: 7"

"A Burning Bus is iconoclast/legend Don Howlands latest musical address from his mountain compound, an exhilarating blast of oppressive fear and hopelessness. With beloved bands like the Gibson Bros and the Bassholes, Mr. Howland has spent over 25 years on the fringes, preaching his misanthropic sermons to a loud but minimalist blend of blues, garage, noise, lo-fi, and whatever else served his muse. Burning Buss debut 7" enhances Howlands trademark treble-tastic menacing sound with three guitars, bass and drums. The results are as huge, thick and engulfing as a fog rolling through the Blue Ridge Mountains. On the A-side, Jayne Countys Paranoia Paradise is ratcheted to its greatest possible twitchy anthemic potential, and the group really cuts loose on the free form flip, where effects pedals, over-driven amps, echo and feedback provide the soundtrack to your own bouts of early in the AM isolationalism." - Harvest.

Artist: AHLEUCHATISTAS
Title: Heads Full of Poison
Format: Double LP
Label: Harvest
Country: USA
Price: $32.00
"With a moniker that screams enigma, Asheville, North Carolina instrumental rock duo Ahleuchatistas belong to the beyond-category sector of such iconic, genre-flouting combos as John Zorns Naked City, Captain Beefhearts Magic Band, Swans, Tortoise, and Sun City Girls. A duo armed only with guitar, bass, and drums, Ahleuchatistas combine wicked precision with intense abandon, droll humor with analytical construction, and a sly gregariousness with uncompromising vision. This pair interweaves elements of punk rock, jazz, classical music, speed metal, grindcore, progressive rock, noise, folk musics from Asia and North Africa, electronic music, and ambient aesthetics, along with volatile, unpredictable improvisation, flowing organically in a virtual world of their own. With a devoted international cult following, Ahleuchatistas is considered by many to be one of the most innovative and ever-developing instrumental groups of the past decade. Cerebral but never ponderous, Ahleuchatistas make immediate music that reaches for the mind, heart, and gut." - Harvest. Full-color gatefold sleeve; free download included.

Title: The Last Whole Earth
Format: Double LP
Label: Harvest
Country: USA
Price: $24.00
"Asheville, North Carolina resident Ross Gentry performs and records under the guise of Villages. With dense layers and glacial droning, he creates engaging narrative soundscapes that evoke the shifting fragility of the early ambient movement as well as the elegance of symphonic composition. The Last Whole Earth is engagingly contemplative and meticulously well-crafted drone. With washes of guitar and synthesizer, subdued vocals, field recordings and minimal noise, Villages devises a beautifully pastoral narrative teeming with honest emotion. While the majority of drone artists are currently plotting a darker and harsher course, this offers warm radiance reminiscent of acts like Flying Saucer Attack, Labradford and Stars of the Lid that many are sure to find refreshing. This double LP is housed in a gorgeous gatefold sleeve with artwork from Asheville artist Lisa Nance. The pressing is limited to 500 copies." -Harvest

"Third volume in this popular series of solo electric guitar improvisations by Wooden Wand in his �??Hassara�?� guise. For this one, Hassara is back to exclusively playing guitar (no vocals, harmonica, bass, etc as on Volume 2), with a heavier emphasis on drone. The trademark boogie of previous releases is still intact �?? in fact, the brief �??Zodiac Blues (w/ intro)�?� is the ruling-est stoned blues jam Wand has ever committed to tape �?? but for the most part, Volume 3 chooses to explore the dark side, with the two part �??Road to Nowhere�?� (a reference to the Carole King song of the same name?) taking up the bulk of the disc. A friend said: �??Sounds like brothers been sniffing around for affordable real estate in New Zealand.�?� WhatEVER, chump." - Hassara.

Title: Backyard Volume Two
Format: CDR

Country: USA

"Second volume in this popular series showcasing the electric guitar-based music of Wooden Wand in his �??Hassara�?� guise. While the premiere volume was based conceptually around the Tarot and numerology, this latest installment deals with themes of displacement and alienation, and adds the occasional vocals, harmonica, drums and bass to the mix. Though defiantly repetitive, the music of the Backyard series is not what youd call �??drone music - this is seriously broken blues captured under the spell of the Private Press, and recorded, as per tradition, at the apex of High. Rumors that the entirety of this CD was recorded while other records played on headphones are entirely unsubstantiated at this time, but wholly probable, so try to spot the Fraction licks! Maybe...

Originally intended to be an outlet to showcase the more Dionysian improvisational impulses of the core members of Town & Country (Ben Vida, Jim Dorling, Liz Payne, Josh Abrams), DRMWPN has grown into an amorphous collective that at any given show may include percussionist Michael Zerang, The Cairo Gangs Emmett Kelly, Califones Jim Becker, vocalist Dan Mohr, Million Tongues Festival impresario and rock historian Steve Krakow (a.k.a. Plastic Crimewave), pedal steel and guitar player Sam Wagster, or any other number of Chicagos free rock/jazz/experimental luminaries among its ranks. Drawing on a shared knowledge and love of minimalism, ethnic devotional music, jazz, rock and improvised ecstatic sound, DRMWPNs sublime live sets are augmented by the flickering hallucinatory generations of their Bryon Gysin-designed dreamachine." - HBSP-2X.

Title: Roman Soldier

Label: HBSP-2X
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Three-piece unit FACTUMS and Captcha (HBSP-2x) Records, of Seattle and Chicago, present Roman Soldier, a multi-dimensional sonic experience of cinematic beauty. The first decaying hit of this record sounds like the approach of an apocalyptic army overheard from the inside of an insurgents desolate cave. Suspense builds as the cadence of the piece accelerates, the twists and turns of its theme provoking high anxiety and cold sweats. As tension climaxes and the sonic assault begins to fade, sounds evocative of dazed contemplation suffuse the aural space, creating an impression of crystalline clarity that might be reminiscent of an introspective montage, replaying the last conversation you had with the one you love. In its primal minimalism, calculated chaos and transcendental ambience, this record presents an opportunity to abandon the banality of modern life and lose yourself in the complexities of your imagination. The Roman Soldier EP follows up the exquisite release Flowers on the Sacred Bones label, arriving in advance of the highly anticipated release Gilding the Lilies. This record, featuring an etching on the reverse, is being produced in an edition of 500 copies and will not be repressed." - HBSP-2X

Artist: PRURIENT
Title: Rose Pillar
Format: Hardcover Book/ 11" LP
Label: Heartworm
Country: USA
Price: $105.00
"180 Page Hardcover Book with 11" Record. What separates Dominick Fernows Prurient project from the rest of the contemporary underground cannon is its unyielding personal subject matter. From the inception of Prurient the concept has always utilized intimate details, photographs, letters and other ephemera culled from places where most artists would choose to obscure. Prurient draws these details into focus more than ever on Rose Pillar, a 180-page hardbound book of Fernows collage work and text supplied by his mother Jean Feraca from her previously published memoir I Hear Voices. Feraca tells the story of the death of Stephen, the brilliant but troubled older brother, an anthropologist who was adopted into a Sioux tribe. Feracas text is juxtaposed with Fernows collages of fallen empires, plant-life and industrial decline. The imagery presented is both stoic yet strangely profound and revealing as an analogy of death. Rose Pillar also contains an 11⿝ vinyl LP containing new material from Prurient that is the most profound and fully-realized work of his career. Prurient is not about an attack but rather a cry for help. Prurient takes the listener to the ends of human emotion as the range of sounds swell as the light of life fades. The climax of the album is the track ⿿spins the worlds wheel again⿝ which contains the most densely melodic frozen drone ever contained on a Prurient recording. Whats evidenced in these recordings is a sense of loss and destruction that cant be replaced. The sound feels more like an erosion of steady decline, ebb and flow, storms, power controlled and power unleashed. This multimedia project pries deeply through the depths of mourning on both a personal and societal scale. In conversation Prurient has exclaimed Rose Pillar to be the end of an era in both function and material. This is Prurient taken to its furthest and most satisfyingly complete conclusion. Nothing will be the same after this release as this is the ultimate result of Prurients process. Finality is a recurring theme with Rose Pillar and that says more than anything." - Heartworm.

Title: Serpents Bite
Format: CD
Label: Heavy Blossom
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"Zaïmphs first CD release on her own label Heavy Blossom. Serpents Bite is made up of 8 separate pieces of vapory splendor, pierced metallic sounds, flickering radiance, and exquisite anguish. Culled from the Zaimph archives and recorded between 2005 - 2006; two previously released CDR tracks, now re-edited, rest aside six unreleased tracks. Multiple amplifiers channel dense, 3-dimensional sound played live with no overdubs. This is organic darkness. Grave-vaults of guitar tunnel through distorted clouds of smoke rising from the watery abyss. Vocals of dissolving thoughts recite mysterious incantations. De-tuned piano recordings and infectious drum machine beats dissolve through phantom empires of multiple effects. Complete derangement of the senses. The entirety was mastered by Christelle Gualdi at Loosduinseweg No. 9. Recorded primarily in England, with the exception of tracks 4 & 7, these recordings are as much of a reflecting back as a pulling towards -- Agrippas Mirror to an unseen Universe. The fox hunted and revered wears a golden breast of jewels reciting from Wordsworth via de Quincey: Fabric it seemd of diamond, and of gold, with alabaster domes, and silver spires.... Settle into the tranquility of repose. Sound is fractured oscillations." -Heavy Blossom

Lets do it." We talked to the band after the gig and they were down -- it was recorded, mastered by our friend Todd Cavallo, and sent off to the plant. Insayngel is Calder, Caitlin, Richard, and John. Calder and Caitlin are Vizusa and used to jam Excepter, and Richard and John are the brutal rhythm unit of Sightings. An intriguing combination of players to say the least, this LP brings a 30th Century sound to the history of New York City. The locked, wrecked rhythms, desparate, gorgeous wails, and shredded, anxious guitars are symphonic, undulating, impossible.

"Rope Pores" is the second in a series of books presented by Heavy Tapes in an attempt to document the amazing visual talents and obsessions of some of contemporary experimental musics finest practitioners. Nate Nelson plays drums, percussion, and electronics in the 21st-century caveman destruction group Mouthus, and also lends his amazing talents to keep the beat for NY out-rock group Religious Knives. Fans may know his visual work from the series of covers he has done for the nearly 20 CDRs released by Mouthuss "Our Mouth" label, which range from tight and thin towers of ink to overblown contrasting visions. "Rope Pores" is a repetitive and incredible journey toward scraping away the painfully thin layer separating the concrete and the abstract. Through thin lines, tight pockets, and sprawling organic structures, Nelson presents an intense and storied vision, along with an accompanying and beautiful piece of music -- a tape composition composed over roughly the same period of time that the visual work was being completed.

Title: The Decline Effect
Format: Double Lp
Label: Helen Scarsdale Agency
Country: USA
Price: $26.00
"Parapsychology introduced the notion of the decline effect as a statistical phenomenon of diminishing results whilst investigating extra-sensory perception and psychokinesis. Where initial findings might substantiate proof of such abilities, further studies would almost always demonstrate the contrary. As such, this ontological disappearing act stands in allegorical parallel to the entropic art of Jim Haynes and frames his 2011 opus of the corroded drone and a compacted disintegration of sound. This San Francisco Bay Area artist has long defined his work through the pithy phrase: I rust things. The Decline Effect continues his investigations with electroacoustic decay through four bodies of evidence left behind from ephemeral aktions, shipwrecked electronics, re-engineered field recordings, and transmissions from the ether. Haynes composes through all of these sources through a patient suturing of sympathetic elements, whether they be textural, tonal, visceral, heavenly, sodden, or monolithic. Here, embers foretelling a nuclear winter gently waft upon industrial chorales amassed from an army of fidgeting motors; the sulfur-laden hiss from volcanic vents erupts from an organic thrum into boiling crescendos of environmental noise; geiger counter palpitations stream along a leaden sea of modulated radio noise; a warm explosion of sun-bleached distortion caresses the evanescent halos from an undulating mesmerism inexplicably not sourced from a guitar and/or digital patch authored by Christian Fennesz. Haynes broken minimalism orbits somewhere near the work Joe Colley, G*Park, Nurse With Wound, and BJ Nilsen. The 2LP of The Decline Effect is strictly limited to 350 copies, comes in a handsome gatefold sleeve, and sports the necessary download coupon. Zener cards not included." - Helen Scarsdale Agency.

Artist: OMIT
Title: Interceptor
Format: Double CD
Label: Helen Scarsdale Agency
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"OMIT is the nom de plume of New Zealand electronic musician CLINTON WILLIAMS, whose homespun constructs detour from the sculpted grit and mottled distortion found in the work of his countrymen and-women. His masterful Quad 3xCD opus (Corpus Hermeticum, 1998) makes palpable the artists contentious argument with his own unwieldy mousetrap of tape-loops, modular electronics, effects pedals, drum machines, and the creaking sounds of his house. Interceptor is the result of an experiment with a portable studio outside his longtime home of Blenheim. With two suitcases of drum machines, effects, and analog synths, Williams recalls being "pissed off with myself wasting time recording this stuff when I was trying to find a job." His frustrations stripped away much of the grandiose sweeps of ambience and shadow, leaving behind a life-support system grid of overlapping, phase-shifted blip and click. An undertow of hypnotic tonalities pulls those rhythms toward a crepuscular gloom. Williams has always been at odds with his own work, yet his self-doubt continues to deliver magnificent albums which thrive in a symbiotic struggle with mechanical disintegration."-Helen Scarsdale

Format: Double CD
Label: Helen Scarsdale Agency
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Obsessive electronic composer CLINTON WILLIAMS returns with a new album recorded under his OMIT moniker. As with all of his previous work, Tracer is an antiquated behemoth, constructed from analogue synthesizers, primitive drum machines, homespun electronics, and numerous effects pedals. Simple wooden rhythms trot, trudge, and even glide along taut metric grids hot-wired with bursts of mechanical splutter and the occasional creak from Pierre Henrys wooden door. An occasionally menacing, but more often melancholic orchestration of synthetic tones ripple, flex, and dissolve across the uniform structuralism, creating an ecstatic paranoia rarely heard with such splendor, rigor, and sublime blackness. If sonic references are required, then the Klaus Schulze masterpiece Cyborg remains the closest analogy to what may be found in Tracer." - Helen Scarsdale Agency .

Title: Relief
Format: LP
Label: Helen Scarsdale Agency
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Our man Millis is a Climax Golden Twin and a noted curator of globe trotting/time traveling esoterica, amongst other accolades. In the former category, Millis and Jeffery Taylor steadily release some of the most head-scratching amalgamations of avant-rock, decontextualized temple music, heightened-state minimalism, and collaged field recordings this side of the Sun City Girls (including the soundtrack to the cult film Session Nine); and in the latter, Millis has published a number of acclaimed anthologies for Sublime Frequencies (Scattered Melodies, This World is Unreal Like a Snake in a Rope, Phi Ta Khon, The Crying Princess, etc.) and Dust-To- Digital (our personal favorite, aptly titled Victrola Favorites). With his fingers in so many jars of jam, it can seem like an uncommon occurrence for Millis to release solo work although he is one to smear his sticky hands all over himself in performance, installation, and collaboration. Thus, The Helen Scarsdale Agency is delighted in presenting his latest opus, Relief. A fever dream of blurred harmonics and ethnomusicological spelunking, Relief repeatedly returns to variations on a peculiar yet beautifully serpentine drone, whose twinkling acoustic properties meld the hallucinatory mouth-music of the Bangladeshi Murung people and the curved air hypnosis of Terry Riley. Millis bookends and interrupts his mysterious miasma with comedic interludes snatched from his lauded collection of antique 78s, maudlin piano tone-clusters, and teleported crescendos of spectral ballroom waltzes. More Nurse with Wound than The Caretaker, this polyglot raga-drone of daytime somnambulism and psychedelic slipperiness speaks to the uneasy borders at psychological, cultural, and geophysical states of being. Oh, to be a human on this planet." - Helen Scarsdale Agency.

Artist: RV PAINTINGS
Title: Samoa Highway
Format: LP
Label: Helen Scarsdale Agency
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"RV Paintings were born in California. Humboldt County, to be exact. It is nearly impossible to imagine their origins being elsewhere since the brothers Brian and Jon Pyle, who currently pilot RV Paintings, constantly mine the metaphysical properties of their homeland through a heavy-lidded psychedelia. The redwood trees that majestically rise from the rugged terrain may have been one of the endemic objects that inspired RV Paintings to "jam nature;" but Humboldt Countys other major cash crop -- marijuana -- cannot be far behind. As much as the Pyle brothers channel a psychotropic animism through sound, their diaphanous drones and foggy ambient tangles spring from a schematic intelligence that belies any method acting of getting stoned and jamming in a room. Samoa Highway is the second full album for RV Paintings, following the nature jam transmissions of Trinity Rivers published by Root Strata in 2007 and a well-suited split LP with Taiga Remains from Blackest Rainbow. Just as the debut payed homage to the rugged river system that cuts through forests and mountains of the region, Samoa Highway refers to the lengthy bridge that runs between two coastal communities in Humboldt County, one of which houses a municipal airport. A swarm of drone guitars announces the opening of the record on "Millions," with a shoegaze wash collapsing into rarified tone purity and bulging through a metallic buzz. Field recordings of airplane take-off and firework explosions punctuate the undulating bleary smear of the Pyle brothers guitars. The result is one of levitation, even as RV Paintings seem to be plugging their guitars and electronics directly into the moss, soil, and mycelia of the Humboldt forest. Echo-soaked flutes, maudlin strings, scabrous noises unearthed from the bottom of the Pacific, and a cinematic arcs of guitar shimmer complete the beautiful and haunted miasma of Samoa Highway that falls somewhere between Taj Mahal Travellers, Organum, and The Caretaker. Brian Pyle may be best known as one of the founders of the Starving Weirdos and records his solo work as Ensemble Economique. Samoa Highway stands the first piece of vinyl published by Helen Scarsdale Agency and includes a code for a digital download. Pressed in an edition of 500 copies." -Helen Scarsdale Agency

Title: Works for Cassette
Format: LP

Price: $19.00
"Here be the final drone/hypnogogic statement from Taiga Remains. The man behind Taiga Remains has now shelved this moniker; but hes far from hanging up his hat, as he now works under his given name Alex Cobb -- also known as the philosopher king who benevolently reigns over his Students of Decay. There are those at the Agency who can claim to speak with the poetics of corrosion, and we have long admired the sympathetic aesthetic in Cobbs gorgeously elegant compositions for guitar, bells, tape hiss, and whatnot. A sadness of things hangs in the air for Cobbs suspended mantras as these pieces evolve through a state of perpetual (un)becoming. For Cobb, the decaying sound is a steady dissolution of one chromatically rippling pattern into another which in turn diffuses into another and the cycle continues; but for every slippery note that pools into watery aquifers, Cobb distances himself from discursive and didactic languages that affix specific meanings onto work. He prefers a mystery and an ambiguousness to hang upon his crepuscular minimalism where the audience can entertain guided excursions of subjective thought. For us, these radiant guitar drones flecked with impressionist melodies bath in the snow of a thousand radios placed throughout Easter Island offering forth their eerie, luminous and beautiful sound that floats amongst those stoic heads that gaze beyond the horizon of the Pacific Ocean towards infinity, or oblivion if you prefer a more sublime reading. As the title to the album states, this album originally published in small cassette editions, long out of print. The material has been gloriously mastered for vinyl by James Plotkin. Those with an ear for Andrew Chalk, William Basinski and those long-form passages from Natural Snow Buildings will find much to celebrate in Taiga Remains." - Helen Scarsdale Agency.

Gacharn is particularly disturbed. Recorded in 1974 while he was still a member of Toshiaki Ishizukas Zuno Keisatsu, its one of Nars patented attention-deficit assemblages, taking off from the burr of chainsaws and birdcalls before moving through episodes that highlight the sound of flesh on flesh, amphetamine piano runs, compositions for hollow pottery and the destruction of new Lego buildings. All I Need is a compliation, with tracks drawn from across Nars career. The title track is a great folk punker from the early 90s, shadowed by the same kind of deeply malvolent atmosphere that cloaked much of Sky Saxons work with Ya Ho Wha 13. The second track was reputedly recorded in 2000 and sounds alarmingly like the cast of Time Bandits re-interpreting Jimi Hendrixs Fire, while track three (no English titles) dates from 1977, while he was still active with Rallizes, and features Nar working snake-charming modal hurricans from an acoustic guitar like it was some kind of Venusian banjo.

"December 2009: Inspiration dependently arising; Blows Against The Empire in one hand, Admiral Richard Byrds secret diary in the other. Days after returning to Maine after three heavy months on the road, Matthew Lajoie (Cursillistas) awoke one morning having dreamt the existence of a lost 1973 private press concept record about the exploration of inner Earth and the advanced civilization thriving at its center. Agartha; Shambhala: the domain of the Arianni. Using Byrds account as the thematic framework for the album, he feverishly poured forth a representation of the dreamt record, writing and recording the entire LP in a single 24-hour period - guided by sonic Ouija. The result is a cosmic antenna with dials tuned to the Planet Earth Rock & Roll Orchestra, obscure psych-prog spacecasts, and classic rock radio, all refracted through the dusty, cracked and scratched Cursillistas prism.

"One of the most gifted abstract sonic pilots from the Vacationland stable, Portland, Maine, artist MATT LAJOIE enjoys a larger-than-Sasquatch reputation for his free folk personality and unpredictable takes on Spectrasound techniques. Although he and his merry band are one of the most charismatic tribes of the New England underground-you gotta see them live-they blossom from psychedelic occurrences that lead to bursts of pacifist oblivion which can only be redeemed inside their studio output. The momentum Lajoie deploys in his polar expressions indicates a supply of time-manipulated balance. An accretion of bucket brigades warping wildly at first breath, generally considered a condition of primitivism, this is searchlight abandonment with purely spirited jams more akin to the tapers pit than slam continuance. In fact, the only thing slammed here (other than the muted poetry echoing like buoys in Golowins harbor) are the in the red meters on fire signs from fire music providing ease with earth, wind and air.

"the idea of truth and memory meld to form a confusing and unreadable interpretation of the idea of pop-culture. generations of sound are made silent and a new monster is created. just as in the film "the night of the living dead" when the undead are continually searching and feasting on the brains of the living to transform the victims into hunters themselves, so to have the sounds previously held on the displayed silent records, been transformed into frightening mirages of their former selves." - Hells Half Halo.

"This compendium utilizes selected material from the following titles: Amarillo Ramp, The Bridge Deva, Spain; Fragments El Oido, first computer piece: the View From Here [Root (for TM)] Sudden Infant (remix) to Mary Walker Groves. Sounds by: Kim Gordon, William Hooker, Takehisa Kosugi, Alan Licht, David Linton, Christian Marclay, Thurston Moore, Jim ORourke, Lee Ranaldo, Sudden Infant, William Winant. The voices of: Charles Bukowski, Raymond Carver, George Cowdery, Thom Degesu, Kim Gordon, Courtney Love, Thurston Moore, Cody Ranaldo, Lee Ranaldo, Leah Singer. You Are Everywhere And Nowhere, All At Once: the sounds of forgotten conversations, voices of loved ones, talks delivered via wire, crosscut with various tone poems (music(s)), with the hope of formulating new dream theories. You are listening to a conversation that took place in heaven, some time ago. This piece grows out of recent works I have been creating dealing with the phrases constructed from various recycled bits of voice and sound, the silences between them, and the cross-pollinations which occur as they are combined in different ways. The sound components have been gathered from across a large number of works Ive done through the years. I decided to use these bits and selections as the raw material from which to create a sort of (Esonic journal or notebook. In the last few years Ive done a few sound installations based around a set of fragments of voices which Ive collected, and most of these are drawn upon here. The voices are those of friends, family, and loved ones, and other artists, and although chosen for personal reasons, my hope is that the various voices will overlay to create a narrative of their own. This piece was originally created for a Belgian radio broadcast in 2000." - Lee Ranaldo.

Title: Young Girl
Format: One-sided 7"
Label: Helter Skelter
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"Breathtaking, innocently sinful folk obscurity from Paul Watkins & Brooks Poston of the Manson clan, developed in their wholly insular community of impulse, drugs, violence and marked creativity. Young Girl reveals a softer, affecting beauty, the antithesis of their well-known exploits at the fringes of sadism and hatred: a spontaneous convergence of raw, self-taught instrumentation and the stupefyingly gorgeous voice of these outcastes. Fallen down a rabbit hole beyond their own comprehension, their song elaborates the fable of a similarly embattled youth, assaulted by the harsh landscape of adulthood and her struggle to retain the purity of childhood, free from the insanity of maturity and civilization. A search for key answers of adolescence and a simultaneous refutation of the intellect, Young Girl reminds us that even in the depths of darkness, ignorance and despair, the most beautiful specimens of creation and transcendence can flourish." -Helter Skelter

Title: Tashi Dorji
Format: LP
Label: Hermit Hut
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"Tashi Dorji grew up in Bhutan, on the eastern side of the Himalayas. Access to any music created outside the country is limited, as are most cultural options, given the geologically isolation of the country. How Dorji went from a life so remote to developing his innovative and revelatory guitar style is mind-boggling. Yearning for access to the world outside, Dorji pursued and obtained a fully-paid scholarship to a liberal arts school in Asheville, NC, in his early twenties. Hes since settled in there (save a short stint in Maine), soaking up a vast array of music, most notably the works of Derek Bailey and John Zorn. Along the way, Dorji developed a playing style unbound by tradition, yet with a direct line to intuitive artistry. His recordings feature improvisations that spasmodically grow along tangential, surprising paths. All references break loose during a composition, as Dorji keys into his own inner world. After a handful of cassettes on various labels, Dorji presents his first proper album on Hermit Hut, the label created by Ben Chasny (Six Organs of Admittance) and inspired by spreading word of Dorjis talents. The six compositions here are hand-picked by Dorji and Chasny as the most representative and far-reaching of his recordings. Taken together, they announce a new guitar music unlike anything being made today." - Hermit Hut.

Title: Unfit Structures
Format: LP

Country: USA

"Formed in 2002 in Western Massachusetts, Vampire Belt is Bill Nace (Body / Head, x.o.4, Ceylon Mange) on guitar and electronics and Chris Corsano (Rangda, Joe McPhee, Evan Parker) on drums and electronics. Early on, they selfreleased a couple of ultra-limited CDRs of lo-fi blow-outs, something like a mangled car wreck at the intersection of hardcore and free jazz. Tours followed and then, in the early/mid 00s, Nace and Corsano partially phased out of Vampire Belt duomode in favor of collaborations with people like Jessica Rylan, Paul Flaherty, Steve Baczkowski, Okkyung Lee, Greg Kelley, Mats Gustafsson, Thurston Moore, Dredd Foole and Bill Orcutt. But in 2014 they made good on a nine year-old promise to Ben Six Organs of Admittance Chasny to record a Vampire Belt album for his label. Unfit Structures, Vampire Belts first LP, comes via Chasnys Hermit Hut label and its not such a far cry from their obliterating early CDRs: high-energy improvised outbursts with spontaneously structured forms imploding just as soon as they begin to solidify." - Hermit Hut.

Despite the song titles, this is actually a strange and unusual rock album which just happens to have religious undertones. Organ, fuzz guitar, male and female lead vocals and masses of electronic embellishments. High-quality vinyl transfer, includes two [uncredited] bonus tracks from a later recording session. Previously pirated by Radioactive Records. Some of the most out there psychedelic sounds can be found on this Kansas trios mega-rare custom LP. One of the first Christian groups to tinker with synthesizers and be experimental at the same time. The song, Christian, for example, opens with a Bach fugue before laying in its steady rock beat punctuated with subterranean wah-wah guitar and a wild, heavily modulated synth lead. The song, Wicked, opens side two with a bizarre amalgam of what sounds like synthesized, bubbling lava pits, frequency oscillations, distorted, sci-fi vocals and shortwave, static patterns. This is Christian psychedelia at its most underground and extreme with all the ear marks of a bad drug trip which, given the songs dark subject matter, works just fine. Likewise, What Shall We Do? opens with a lengthy outpouring of some of the most vicious, distorted fuzz guitar ever then relaxes into a spooky, dream-like ballad before it climaxes with a flying saucer effect that sounds straight out of Dark Side Of The Moon. There are several fine and moody garage tracks here as well. Difficult to describe: they are highly listenable and quite creative. Dense echoes lend to the homemade feel of the entire project. A monster for sure with fewer than 500 LPs made at the initial pressing. Duncan Long, the main man behind the synths, guitars and song writing is now a published science fiction author." - Hidden Vision.

"Christian rock/psych/garage ranging from album tracks by well known groups like Agape, Search Party and All Saved Freak Band to singles by more obscure groups such as Concrete Rubber Band and Stonewood Cross; extremely high level of musical quality throughout, with varying degrees of fuzzed up guitar solos on all tracks; theres a message there for those who need it—but otherwise this is just great listening; fantastic Psychedelic Moses cover art. Ken Scott review from his excellent spiral-bound Archivist (Vintage Vinyl Jesus Music, 1965-1980): “All the songs on this album were specifically chosen for their guitar content… some of it mellow and subtle, and some of it mind frying heavy fuzz”. For the budget-minded heres you chance to sample tracks from rare pricey albums by Concrete Rubber Band and The Search Party, plus Agape, Exkursions, The Bridge, All Saved Freak Band, and Way International outfits Selah and Pressed Down Shaken Together & Rolling Over. And if youve already got all those theres a 1967 pre-Agape song (In The Light) and the six-minute stunner Magic Man from the elusive Stonewood Cross single (man, if those guys had only cut an album – yeow!). Neat b&w cover art with Fillmore-styled psych lettering.” -Hidden Visions.

Cassette Edition of 50; Handstamped, cobalt grade tapes. "The debut release of Australia+s Jarrod Zlatic+s Mud Brick Couch project. Most know Zlatic as 1/2 of DIY unit, The Fabulous Diamonds. Mud Brick Couch expands that abstracted dub enigma inherent to so much of the Diamonds sound into a classic, minimal raw electronic field that is more mortar crumble than concrete or steel. The Mud Brick Couch debut has the immediacy of those classic early 90s French or Japanese noise tapes with the rhythmic, bleed-stretch dub and tape aura of every monolithic electronic industrial group up to Basic Channel. Ultimately, though, its the organically thick  spirit of urban repetition and surveilled atmosphere in Mud Brick Couch that puts Zlatic+s process miles ahead of any of these plastic contemporary techno revisionists." - Hierodule Ed.

Format: 12"

Price: $15.00
"dEon is producer, composer and singer based in Montreal, Canada who explores electronic counterpoint through house, funk and pop music. Using synthesizers to snake out melodies that weave and interlock with each other, dEons music straddles a space between pessimistic desperation and the longing for ecstasy. At the age of four, dEon began making music with synthesizers and sequencers and learning music theory. Over the course of 20 years, dEon has inhabited numerous musical spaces. As a small child in the early 1990s, making amateur tapes of synthesizer-based music exposed him to electronic music. As an introverted only child, music remained a constant fixation over the next 20 years. At the age of 11, dEon began studying piano at a local university in eastern Canada, and was there exposed to the music of post-minimalist composers like Steve Reich and Terry Riley. The shifting counterpoints and patterns in Reichs music made a considerable, permanent impact on his perception of music. The young musician then started composing and arranging various musics for violin, chamber orchestra and piano. After a childhood of music lessons, master classes and competitions, the teenage Deon dropped out of formal music training, and after increasingly disabling anxiety and schizoid tendencies developed into severe agoraphobia during his adolescent years, he began producing large quantities of ambient, minimal electronic music while shut in for weeks on end. Having eventually overcome these issues, dEon started on a path studying several music traditions and instruments as an adult, including the Arabic Oud, Iranian Setar, Turkish Saz and Indian Harmonium. He briefly fronted an industrial noise group in 2005, all recordings of which have since been erased by dEon himself. In 2008 he travelled to the Himalayan foothills to study Tibetan music. During this time he lived in a secluded Tantric monastery on the side of a mountain, where he spent months in relative silence, practicing and writing music. After returning to western society in 2009 to find the worlds economy collapsed and his job terminated, dEon moved to Montreal and began writing pop music with heavy influence from classic Chicago house, early 90s dance music from Britain, boogie-funk, as well as the influences that had accumulated through the years of musical learning. The songs on his upcoming debut LP Palinopsia (named after a vision condition that dEon was born with) evoke a sense of dread, but also longing, like the hope of getting into heaven after the apocalypse. Much more so than any superficial musical cues, it is the longing for divine ecstasy and the fear of divine judgment that motivated the music of Palinopsia. Lyrics like �The ocean is a sewer / The city is a whore� suggest a much more apocalyptic view of the world as compared to the blissful, sleepy escapism of chillwave. The tracks are a deceptively accessible backdrop for dEons vision of the inevitable horrors of the 21st century post-information-age hellscape that we all will likely have to endure." - Hippos In Tanks.

We met in a 6th grade science class and drew tape covers of fake bands that we dreamed we were in together. In high school we started jamming double synthesizers in Dans basement. This is when we were burning a lot, headbanging to 70s jazz-fusion, dubbing 88.9 blazer mixtapes and jamming them in cars ALL NITE while parsing the landscape data brain !!NORTH WAYLAND STYLE.!! After years of focusing on our respective musical projects (Oneohtrix Point Never, Tigercity) we decided it was time to make THE MAGIC HAPPEN. In February of 2010, we moved to Bushwick and started eating a lot of STREET MEAT and growing vegetables in a legit garden... EVERYTHING HAD TO BE SLOWER AND CREAMIER. From this profound environ GAMES WAS BORN. The sound is a blend of sampler/synth ecologies from across the globe.

From a production perspective the record is massive. Joel Ford naturally takes the fader reigns and delivers production quality on par with Sade. In the context of Games, Lopatin voyages to new stylistic islands observing the nature of moments passed with stunning awareness and vision.

Music which fascinates largely because of its refusal to commit"-The Wire. You have heard One Nation before. You remember hearing "Businessline" in the waiting room at your trustee-in-bankruptcys office during the OPEC oil crisis. "Your Girl Smells Chung When She Wears Dior" was playing on your boombox when you finally lost your virginity at the age of 25. you first heard "Warlord" at a K-Hole afterparty somewhere in Bavaria. Or was it Detroit? "Ital" was the music you heard during your private audience with Emperor Selassie. Or was Ghaddafi? "Unfaithful" is the sound of your childrens memories of suburban decay. One Nation is the sound that desaturated blue/grey/pink carpets and venetian blinds and ceiling tiles with tiny holes and the linering smell of perfume and nicotine make when you dream about the world you used to live in.

The music struts a particular brand of artifice with a panache swagger that always finds new potential in its birth citys past revelations- think the Wax Trax lexicon with touches of classic Chicago House. Katz serenades the tracks of No Better with 16-bit crushed vocals and the listener is accosted into a paranoid tale of contemporary reality: the minds capacity in relationship to the abundance of databanks, hunting as hobby, sexuality as commodity and the ever entangling web of online identity." - Hippos In Tanks.

"Everywhere At The End of Time is the first in a series of six albums by The Caretaker, aka James Leyland Kirby, slowly cataloguing the stages of early onset dementia. Each album will reveal new points of progression, loss and disintegration, progressively falling further and further towards the abyss of complete memory loss and nothingness. Viewing dementia as a series of stages can be a useful way to understand the illness, but it is important to realize that this only provides a rough guide to the progress of the condition. Drawing on a recorded history of 20 years of recollected memories, this is one final journey and study into recreating the progression of dementia through sound. As the first in the series - and despite its typically frayed loop construction, this volume is the most lucid - subsequent instalments will continue to move into faded obscurity and material erosion.

"The second of six albums issued under the title Everywhere At The End Of Time, The Caretakers fictional first person account of life with early onset dementia, takes a more wistful tack as our protagonist gradually realizes that all is not well and begins to rummage deeper into the recesses of his memory, masking emotions of grief, loss, fear, and uncertainty by deeper dwelling in the recesses of a decaying mind. As The Caretakers short term memory functions begin to more rapidly erode, the loop-based punctuation of previous installments begin to subtly unravel, leading his mind to drift off and ponder fuller segments of tea dance strings and horns which appear uncannily more inviting, seductive, and now even more tangible than the abbreviated reels of earlier editions. Loop points wilt away in autumnal greys and russet rustles as new information becomes more difficult to process, back pedaling down memory lane toward an opaque smudge of half-forgotten/remembered spaces, places and un/familiar faces which provide more comfort and clarity than the world around him. It feels strange to recommend undergoing this experience, albeit in such an impressionistic and detached manner, but it somehow feels like a conversely enlightening one for these strange, disingenuous and unpredictable end times that we inhabit right now.

Title: The Death of Rave (A Partial Flashback)
Format: LP
Label: History Always Favours the Winner
Country: UK
Price: $25.00
Leyland Kirby: "The idea for The Death of Rave was conceived in early 2006 after a visit to the Berghain Club in Berlin. At the time, Berghain was about to explode on the international club scene as a temple. The feeling was in the air that something special was happening. I went and saw a pale shadow of the past. Grim and boring beats, endlessly pounding to an audience who felt they were part of an experience but who lacked cohesion and energy. For me personally, something had died. Be it a spirit, be it an ideal, be it an adventure in sound. Rave and techno felt dead to me. The original The Death of Rave project was vast, over two-hundred flashbacks, using all of the dancefloor hits from the time and stripping them of energy and spirit, turning them into shadows and ghosts. The material pre-dates the recent obsession younger musicians have for re-creating remembered rave textures and memories. This was not nostalgia, It was an inverted paean to a time when the music was about bringing people together for a shared experience. A time when only the music and advancement of sound and getting on one mattered. Of course The Death of Rave was vast, too vast to digest. It was available for free download for a number of years via the V/Vm Test label. In the end the The Death Of Rave died itself when the V/Vm Test web site was deleted in full in 2008. In the intervening years I have at various times re-visited the work. And so eight tracks were lifted from the project and have now been remastered by Matt Colton as a document from a dead past. A monument to a lost work, an idea finally set in stone via a physical format. Proof of its existence. Ivan Seal, himself a veteran of the original rave times, provides the glorious cover artwork in keeping with all History Favours The Winners releases. The tracklisting is in reference to the strongest rave-memories I have from those nights. The people, the DJs, the cars, the violence and the long-lost clubs. Flashbacks only, now consigned to my own dusty experiences. They danced like they never had before. They danced in the darkest hour before daybreak. Its dead now, over. Long may it live..." "Collective memory was the subject of the Death Of Rave project, inspired by Kirbys participation in the Manchester club scene of the late 80s and early 90s. Recalling the surge years of rave between 1988-96, Kirby says Everyone thought everything was possible on those long nights. The World was ours. Now I think this generation is very disillusioned. They saw a glimpse of light on the dance floors, but that light has gone out and the future seems grim and predictable. --Simon Reynolds, Retromania.

Title: Bleaklow (Remastered)
Format: Double LP
Label: History Always Favours the Winner
Country: UK
Price: $27.00
"One of the most destitute and absorbing albums in Leyland Kirbys canon is finally given a much-needed vinyl pressing, following on from its initial CD release in 2008. Bleaklow is harrowing from the start, the opening "Something to Do with Death" reverberating dread via layers of unstable, radiant drones punctuated with pained, hi-pitched howls that cut through the mix with violent intent. "Solemn Dedication" adds percussion to the mix and sits somewhere between classic John Carpenter and Nate Young, but its on "Indefinite Ridge" that things really take a turn towards that eerie, destabilizing sound Kirby can do so well, like a standout BoC vignette pounded by the rattle of industrial machinery malfunctioning in the background; its at once deeply unsettling and oddly comforting. "A Melody Drags Me Back" recalls the spirit of Kirbys best-known productions as The Caretaker, except in place of those old 78s you get just the vaguest hint of life and color beneath the endless layers of sonic unease. The album ends with "Ominous Sunset," an incredible 6-minute coda thats perhaps best compared to Kirbys Sadly, the Future Is No Longer What It Was set, sounding like Vangelis score for Bladerunner aged and degraded yet still somehow conveying all its retro-futuristic romance. Its an astonishing ending to one of Kirbys finest albums. Fully remastered and cut by Matt Colton at Alchemy." - History Always Favours the Winner.

"James Leyland Kirby returns in 2012 with his long-in-the-making soundtrack to Grant Gees film about W.G. Sebald. Patience (After Sebald) is a multi-layered film essay on landscape, art, history, life and loss by the acclaimed documentary film-maker Grant Gee. It is an exploration of the work and influence of German writer W.G. Sebald (1944-2001), told via a long walk through coastal East Anglia tracking his most famous book The Rings Of Saturn (1995). The book mixes history, travelogue, memoir, meditation, fiction and images to explore the personal, public and often overlooked histories of Suffolk. In 2009, Grant approached The Caretaker to work on a soundtrack for this work and he sourced out-of-copyright Franz Schubert works from 1927 including the famous work "Winterreise." The soundtrack has been pieced together using snippets and fragments of this source material. The album artwork features another specially-commissioned painting by Ivan Seal.

"James Leyland Kirby is a prolific artist with a remarkably long and varied career working inside, outside and beyond the electronic underground. From his roots as one-half of renowned audio pranksters and sonic agitators V/VM, to his critically-acclaimed work as The Caretaker and, most recently, Leyland Kirby -- hes always attracted the attention of an often bewildered audience, although his stature and position as serious auteur has somehow grown exponentially with every year that has gone by since his beginnings in rainy Edgeley back in the mid-90s. Eager To Tear Apart The Stars is his follow-up proper to the now-classic Sadly, The Future Is No Longer What It Was trilogy of LPs, which were released in 2009 to widespread critical acclaim. Since then, hes quietly ushered in the demented white label vinyl series Intrigue & Stuff, and released another album as The Caretaker, An Empty Bliss Beyond This World. Eager To Tear Apart The Stars echoes and refracts the maverick solo synth classics of Roedelius and Harold Budd, but with a temporal warping and sense of decayed decadence individual to Kirbys oeuvre. Theres an ostensible sadness to these six pieces, but of a life-affirming and subtly ambiguous kind, evoking almost indecipherably mixed emotions of a rare and enigmatic variety which continue to haunt long after the record has come to a close.

Over on the B-side, he yields the intoxicating whiskey fume shimmer and viscous roil of "The Tar Sands," plus a strange percussive piece that sounds like lonely seamen performing drum rituals in a ships hull, and concludes with the somnolent symphony of spectral siren chorales, synth brass and claggy bass in "Wanting an Absolute Beyond." Well never quite know the intentions behind these tracks, but we can tell you they function equally as escape pods and ideal drinking soundtracks. Imbibe deeply and responsibly." - History Always Favours the Winners.

Title: Internal Logic
Format: LP
Label: HLR
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"GRASS WIDOW—HANNAH LEW, RAVEN MAHON, and LILLIAN MARING—write their hypnotic, layered melodies collaboratively. Their haunting songs, rich in metaphor and couched in reference and allusion, are mined from the personal narratives of each member. Vocal duties, shared equally all around, complete the overall sensibility. Grass Widow has no front-person, and offers a musical experience not based on celebrity or spectacle. In line with these principles, they have maintained their objective of playing age- and gender-inclusive shows since their formation. Grass Widow formed in 2007; their first release was a self-titled LP on San Francisco’s Make a Mess Records in 2009, followed by a 12-inch EP on Captured Tracks and their second full-length, Past Time, which came out in 2010 on Kill Rock Stars. The band has toured Europe and China, and recently started their own record label, HLR. The ready-steady build for Grass Widow is representative of their music and overall band aesthetic, and it reaches a new high point with the release of Internal Logic, their third album." -HLR.

Title: Population II
Format: LP
Label: Hobbit
Country: USA
Price: $17.50
"Perhaps the first legitly authorized version of his absolute monster heavy guitar album by the one-time Other Half/Blue Cheer guitarist. Randys work with Blue Cheer (limited to side 2 of New, Improved!) is the stuff of legend, but with Population II, he re-wrote the books on what it means to be "heavy". Bootlegged many times (since its famous re-release on Line Records in the 1980s), this version is signed in gold marker by Holden himself (!), pressed on 180 grams, in an exact facsimile of the original Hobbit Records release. Briefly available in 1970, it was his only solo recording until Randys 1997 resurrection album on Captain Trip. Population II is merely the heaviest rock record of all time, deserving of its own genre: monster-plod, power-surge sonic deconstruction -- like nothing else before or since (forget about "doom"). A duo only recording, featuring: Holden (guitar, bass, vocals) & Chris Lockheed (drums). Special guest stars: Sunn Amps!" - FE. Highly recommended!

There was no letter with the package and no return address. Both records are very haunting and moving, reminding me of Simon Finns Pass the Distance and a couple of other beautiful and obscure albums which usually get lazily classified as loner folk.

Totally out-of-nowhere, "unknown" LP received a month or two back, unsolicited, from an address in Illinois. Immediately we thought "Jim Collins", "Terry", "Boots/CC/Snake & Remus", etc, due to the similar geographic origins, and the sound doesnt negate that theory. Our source for the Collins and Terry LPs (sold out years ago) couldnt (or wouldnt?) give us confirmation about this or its apparent "sister" LP, Tommy Roundtree. The mystery continues..

Title: Plane/Talea
Format: LP
Label: Holidays
Country: Italy
Price: $28.00
"Italian composer Alessandro Bosetti presents Plane/Talea. Bosetti explains: "The cycle of compositions collected under the title Plane/Talea reflect my interest in vocal polyphonic music. They envision an impossible choir constructed through the sampling of thousands of fragments and pieces of voices, my own and those of others, and their re-composition into polyphonic garlands and textures. This cycle can be intended as the utopic sonification of an impossible community in which the voice is atomized into primary particles and later reconstituted into sonic masses and clouds. These are too dense and complex for a chorus of real human beings to sing. The music of Plane/Talea is the sonic projection of such a community. The voice is not processed or altered in any way but subjected to molecular reorganization. Theoretically, a hyper-chorus could sing material of this type but, perhaps fortunately, such a choir does not yet exist. Up until now, in the process of creation of my vocal music, Ive kept two poles and influences in balance: that of madrigalism, in its late renaissance and contemporary incarnations, and that of hyper-polyphony, which is close to spectral music. Though not ever having actually written in one or the other of these two styles, Ive always felt this unresolvable and fertile tension in my work." Recorded, composed and mixed by Alessandro Bosetti at GMEM (Centre National de Création Musicale in Marseille). Additional recordings by Attila Faravelli at Spazio O, Milano.

He studied at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Copenhagen and at the more liberal Ex-School (Eks-Skolen), embracing its radical approach in study and creation of art and developing into his own musical thinking. In 1962, he attended the George Maciunass International Festspiele Neuster Musik in Wiesbaden, where he probably experienced an epiphany that caused a significant shift in his artistic practice and musical composition.

Price: $26.00
Edition of 400. "Holiday Records present a reissue of Hüseyin Ertunç Trios Mûsikî, originally released in 1974 on Intex Records. This cosmic free jazz improvisation by this legendary trio guided by Hüseyin Ertunç - on drums - with his then-regular partners Michael Cosmic and Phil Musra - on saxophones and additional percussion - reveals the primitive and physical approach of the trio, with Ertunçs massive cymbals drumming building a carpet of trance-driving vibe where the reeds can freely dance without any structure. "A new world of improvisational freedom opened up for me when I first heard drummer Huseyin Ertunçs 1974 LP Mûsikî, with reedmen/multi-instrumentalists/brothers Phil Musra and Michael Cosmic. Ertunç returned to his native Turkey about twenty years ago (and performs with the Konstrukt collective), but Musra - this tunes composer - now resides in Los Angeles and, as regular readers of this blog know, is still active in music. Although I initially assumed that Mûsikî and Musras companion LP The Creator Spaces (1974) were recorded at the same session, in truth Mûsikî was recorded months earlier. The Creator Spaces is a bit more spacious than Ertunçs date, though both are quite intense documents of self-produced and spiritually-directed improvisation. Knotty and weird, theres a folksy unhinged-ness that really spoke to me in a way quite different from Albert Ayler, the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians, and other music I was spending time with when I dropped the needle on the trios debut album. Ertunçs percussion work really shocked me and its still absolutely fascinating, and Cosmics organ playing behind/around Musras tenor is just something else." - Clifford Allen.

In the caliber of multi-album statements like Cecil Taylors Nuits de la Fondation Maeght (1969) and string instrumentalist and composer Alan Silvas Seasons (1970), Gümüslük Sessions: At Lon s stretches out texturally and conceptually, although theres a loose, homegrown informality unique to these musicians orbit (partly attributable to the dry, open recording quality). The initial marathon pace relaxes into nattering trails and the full ensemble falls away to reveal spare duos and trios over the course of eight sides. Ertunçs piano ebbs as zurna, flutes and bamboo reeds, auxiliary percussion and voices draw out the musics connection to folk forms, as well as the interleaved East-West textures of Yusef Lateef and the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians. As out as the music gets, theres always a center in Ertunçs keyboard approach; moreover, his linkages with the pliable, allover percussive buzz and thrumming pizzicato create a constant burble of jabbing movement. This is a clunky, Monkish swing or a playful push-pull, rather than the tinka-tinka-ting of bebop. Concentrated, unflagging and incredibly spiritual, Ertunç, Cağlar, Doğusel and Tan have convened to structure an incredibly personal artistic document that speaks to the universal possibilities of freedom." -- Clifford Allen.

His height didnt fit into a normal-sized bed as well as his musical dimensions were too far out to fit into the mainstream taste of the masses. It was wonderful to hike with him in the Hindukush mountains up the Salang Pass. Afghanistan was a very peaceful and hospitable country before the westerners destroyed this unique paradise."

He worked with Sunny Murray, Don Cherry, Okay Termiz, Peter Kowald, Takehisa Kosugi, Toshi Ichiyanagi, Michael Ranta, and so many more. This longplayer captures two very different moments of his work. On side A -- recorded in 1994 -- he wildly plays the legendary Sun Harp, which Sun Ra gave him in Egypt in 1971 as a guarantee for the money Hartmut lent him to fly back to the States. Sun Ra promised that he would buy it back from him one day but this never happened and hes still the owner of this magical instrument.

"Holiday Records presents Orpheus by Hartmut Geerken. Fantastic sound poetry piece by Hartmut Geerken restringing the "Sun Harp", the Ukranian bandura that Sun Ra gave him in 1971 when he visited Egypt for the first time. The acoustics of his manual workings emerge without any esthetic intention: the banduras voluminous resonating body forms the reverb of the room. Each manual action and each contact of the tuning key with the wooden body is "reverbed". The instrument creates its audio space. A mythic dream play is evoked: the myths space of reverb. An ear ready to absorb, hears the labor pains of voice and string ahead of language and music. A human voice in search for language and thus for communication. A string instrument in search for sound and thus for music. Based on this phonemic pre-space, words do rise only sporadically. Through certain techniques of vocal chords the phonemes move close to the meditative Indian Dhrupad-singing, as well as to lunacy and disturbance. Animal languages, signals, shepherds calls, silvered drum-language, ham-boning, calls, litany, subconscious voicings, sirens: the search for Eurydike and the search for the origin of letter and syllable, out of the breath. Besides one single "superimposition" no further mounting, no computer-generated sounds, no digital gimmicks, no remix or art mix do exist in this live-recorded dream play.

Now, Konstrukt are well known for their many collaborations with key players and real giants of worldwide jazz scene, but - once again - having the chance to listen to the music they produce when they play "by their own" is something special.

This improvisation features the Konstrukt collective - which is Korhan Futacı (tenor & soprano saxophones), Umut Çağlar (electric guitar), Özün Usta (double bass, djembe, gong, bells), Korhan Argüden (drums) - incredibly enriched by the presence of Peter Brötzmann (on tenor), Hüseyin Ertunç (acoustic piano, küstüfon, gong), Doğan Doğusel (double bass, küstüfon) and Barlas Tan Özemek (electric guitar). The result of the combination is simply marvelous, because Brötzmanns unique phrases perfectly match with the sound of what confirms to be a well-coordinated collective.

"Holiday Records presents a reissue of Trio Prosodico (1978) by Arrigo Lora-Totino. Arrigo Lora-Totino is considered one of the fathers of Italian sound poetry. Hes mostly known for having curated the anthology Futura: Poesia Sonora (1978), where he collected the voices of the most interesting sound poets of the twentieth century, but also for being a key figure in the Italian experimental poetry. Active since the late sixties, he gave more than 200 performances of "Gymnastic Poetry" and "Liquid Poetry" (using the Idromegaphone, a tool invented on purpose to let the voice sound through water) and a series of mimic declamations of avant-garde texts, from futurism to dadaism, Russian zaum, expressionism, surrealism, lettrisme and concretism. This sound poem in six movements - performed as a vocal trio together with Sergio Cena and Laura Santiano - was recorded in 1976 in Torino at Studio di Informazione Estetica (S.I.E.) and is considered by the author himself one of his most important works. First volume in a series of sound poetry releases on Holiday Records coordinated by Luca Garino. Comes in a deluxe edition with the complete reproduction of the handwritten original scores.

The Dogu (literally: "clay figures") were small humanoid and animal figurines made during the Jomon period for religious purpose: it may have been believed that illnesses could be transferred into the Dogu, which was then destroyed, clearing the illness, or any other misfortune. The record itself is a musical healing ritual invoking a powerful demon with Sakatas throat singing, unleashing then slowly hypnotizing it in the second half of the album, putting it back into its vault before its too late.

Recorded in 1989 and originally released by Aaya in 1990, Check Point Charlie is the first work by Tazartés conceived for the compact disc format and its different time boundaries. The result is a 60 minute long collection of layered field recordings combined into a polyphonic ceremony filled by his typical multi-tracked vocals, between a gibberish scream and the muezzins call to prayer.

Country: Switzerland
Price: $26.00
"Anyone who has experienced Swans live on one of their recent tours will know who Norman Westberg is: the almost stoic, tall man, who coaxes rhythmic sounds from his guitar with an incomparably minimalist power and elegance. The play on words in the title can be applied to Westbergs own musical work, because whereas Swans are hard to surpass in terms of brute force, the artists solo work is much more subtle, and therefore also quieter. The resulting juxtaposition between the dense metropolis of New York, where The All Most Quiet was recorded, and the albums minimalistic strains, open up virtual spaces for attentive listeners. The opening, nearly twenty-minute title track begins with a lucid echo-like and extensive sound that seems to expand spatially and then contract again. At the same time the piece is evocative of lighting effects: mostly the music is slightly cool but rather bright. Individual beams break open or darken the mood. The consistent subtlety of the collages provokes the increased attention of the listener and every sonic shift is consciously perceived. The track "Sound 2" begins with atonal and slightly bumpy delays, which become increasingly confused and develop an unpleasant undertow. It is a kind of clamorous minimalism combined with an ability to conjure up sounds from a guitar that hardly sounds like guitar that makes Norman Westbergs music so unique." - Hollow Ground.

"The follow-up to 2008s Khora, Fragments of the Marble Plan adds an electronic carapace to AUFGEHOBENs cataclysmic noise-rock foundation. The prevailing sound evokes the Mego label before it added "Editions" to its name and became enamored of American guitar mavericks-back when it purveyed cyclotronic, abstract electronic music that had the centrifugal force of an irrefutable Ph.D. thesis. Such is the overwhelming power of Aufgehoben on the British groups sixth album that even exposure to the MP3s makes one relieved to have health insurance. Music this apocalyptic has few peers, but some approximate touchstones are the most radically "out" and knotty moments of Norwegian post-jazz ensemble Supersilent, This Heat after realizing that Brise-Glace didnt pay them a penny in royalties, or Farmers Manual after extensive immersion in Mainliners back catalog. Fragments of the Marble Plan is a terrifying force of nature, a Rube Goldberg machine run amok, the sound of civilization atomizing into controlled chaos. Its so cold, its hellish. Although Aufgehoben feels your need for catharsis, they convince you that being ready to jump out of your skin is the new normal.

Messidor may have been mellower, but the progression displayed on Khora leads one to believe that full-on rock may be in the cards for this group, who have seemingly removed the elbow patches from their jackets and rolled up their sleeves for good. The album begins with three short pieces, sonic examples of texture meeting metal--like a djinn trapped in molten gold, attempting to burst free from his cage but only managing to express rage via infinie temporary sculptures ranging from the nightmares of the Muetter Museum to futuristic expressions of nature not yet captured by a conscious eye. The final track is 28 minutes of pure glory that will surely become one of noise rocks classics. Massively blown-out and beautifully recorded, "Jederfursich" lays down twin mirrors side by side as a model of infinity is allowed to morph through sounds that recall the energy of existence and the sand of time itself." - Holy Mountain

Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"Messidor is the fourth album from the UKs AUFGEHOBEN, who record unformed improvised sounds and then, over a period of time, mix and mutate them into a not immediately identifiable form of raw instrumental rock noise. It is the discordant and hostile sound of mechanical beasts locked in a cage against their will via incredible levels of distortion, clattering percussion and a wide spectrum of overtones produced by scraped and scratched guitar strings. In time a sense of structure is revealed and the musicality of Messidor unfolds la New Directions Unit, Throbbing Gristle, This Heat, and post-Nite Flights Scott Walker.

"The Baseball Astrologer is Douglas Berman -- painter, astrologer, raconteur, chai-maker and dedicated walker. His ominous take is accompanied by the guitar and sounds of Steven Wray Lobdell (Davis Redford Triad, Faust) for an otherworldly post-game wrap-up where everything needs more orange, Neptune is in Capricorn, the casino of life is operating and where, even after death, we will have things to do.

Title: Mono / Stereo
Format: CD
Label: Holy Mountain
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"On Mono/Stereo, FRED BIGOTs early "Panasonic meets rockabilly" sides are compiled and sequenced such that you cant help but mistake it for a 21th century version of KLFs "Chill Out"-except the country and Elvis references have been replaced by things like the sounds of attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion and C-beams that glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. You know, shit youd read about in a Samuel Delany book or something. Culled from two 12-inches of murky, minimalist proto-Schaeffel-beat, this CD also features rare outtakes from the full spectrum of heaviness. T-Rex-like rock-groove head-nod decadence expands the notion of stereo separation so far that the Memorex dude on the couch would be reduced to a puddle of flesh. How do you explain this stuff? You cant-it was from the future." - Holy Mountain.

Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Its been said that Volume 1 is possibly the best rock release to come out of Philadelphia ever. While low on recording budget, attitude and pretension, BIRDS OF MAYA is high on stolen riffs and an energetic execution seldom seen outside of a Sunday ruling by Seamus McCaffery. Whether they are mangling riffs or stepping way out for fried boogie solos Birds of Maya oozes a dark chunky sludge with elements from all the colors of the classic rock rainbow. Do they really sound like "a GG Allin demo played through a megaphone?" Its a fair description and its certainly colorful, but it leaves out an awful lot. They are loud and they are chaotic, but they have way more groove than GG Allin could have ever imagined." - Holy Mountain"Birds of Maya did what countless garage rock geeks try and fail at: dust off 1968 and bring it back to life without making it look like museum piece. Bringing on the best of 60s power trios like Hendrix and Cream, a whiff of Blue Cheers bongwater, Black Sabbaths bass heavy paranoia, and Stooges bum-out, they were sloppy in all the right places. The jamming never got tired and held everyones rapt attention." -phawker.com

Thats just one scenario; who doesnt love those other blues fondly recalled with names like Blues Addicts and Blues Creation? And lets not forget that other queen of the blues -- Barbara from Just Farr a Laugh. Blues Control might just be the missing link between Van Halen and legendary experimentalist Henry Flynt. They are a duo. Lea Cho plays swank but grounded atmospheric keyboard parts (think Harold Budd), through which guitar player and manipulator of assorted junk-on-table Russ Waterhouse cuts, whittles and lays to waste. Its a hazy, spaced world that exists between fuzzed distortion, jabbering electronics, and a lazy, stay-in-bed psychedelic glaze, with rhythmic keyboards pulsating below it all a la a guy named Florian -- and you can choose which one you want. Oh yeah, I gotta mention the humid bikini-vibe that permeates the entire album." -Holy Mountain.

Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Originally an all-things-not-PANTHERS outlet for guitarist KIP ULHORN swapping musical ideas with SIMON WOJAN (now in KING KHAN AND HIS SHRINES), CLOUDLAND CANYON spent several years interpreting the more structurally-challenged examples of Krautrock, 70s psych of the drone-discovering variety, spots of unnerving (in a good way) improv here and there, and the wonderful 90s bands that started out as head-scratchers and ended up as innovators (first-wave Siltbreeze and Kranky highlights). Fin Eaves, the bands third full-length overall, is the inaugural album from Cloudland Canyon Phase II. Joined once again by significant-other KELLY ULHORN and a rotating cast of contributors, Kip has crafted a unique take on really, really goddamned loud and noisy. Most important are big, unavoidable pop hooks clawing their way out of a pulsating, throbbing thickness of guitar, bass, who-knows-what-type-of-effects and understated but omnipresent drumming. Imagine a Flying Saucer Attack foundation supporting noise on par with the first two Iran albums, or maybe even Jesu, with flowing vocals providing the major pop-hook components.

The albums secular calls to prayer with humming, looping, and loping ambient passages are interspersed with bursting rhythmic energy and agitated guitar lines. Pulling influences from the foggy ether of generations past, the band stakes their claim to the shadows of the cult musical culture of the late 1960s and early 1970s German underground scene. Live shows sound like unauthorized soundtracks to netherworld versions of The Swimmer or The Scorceror. Originally released on vinyl in an edition of 96 copies, Silver Tongued Sisyphus is now available once again.

Lost love, genocide and forgotten histories collide with raw-dog vocal thundering, slippery bass frequencies, adventurous percussion and seductive guitar ripples.

On Old Punks, Doronco is joined by members of MAHER SHALAL HASH BAZ, a Frenchman, and an additional female vocalist. The band uses vocals, bassoon, and trumpet over a see-sawing battle of piano / guitar shrill balanced against warm rhythms.

Ancestral Songs is comprised of apocalyptic tunes, a banjo raag, mellifluous birdsong, and the sci-fi-sounding duet of a searing Jews harp and toy piano.

Price: $16.00
"Frances HIGH WOLF possesses a natural-born ability to produce tones most conducive to inducing transcendental states. Prolific without wearing out his welcome, the guitarist and effects box manipulator sets loose fervid streams of fever-dream drones. High Wolfs tracks sound as if theyve been sluicing since the beginning of time, siphoned for teasingly brief absorption before they shimmer off to the vanishing point. This elite droneur is one of the few musicians who could title a 7-inch A Guide to Healing without it coming off as an ironic gesture or a laughable boast. Atlas Nation-recorded in 2010 after a long trip to India and Nepal-deepens High Wolfs penetration into the mystic. It evokes an uneasy peace with a new breed of tribal psychedelia shorn of all hokey signifiers. "Fuji Descent" starts the album with what could be a languid, paradisiacal soundtrack to a scrapped Alejandro Jodorowsky film. "The Dawn of Man" is a stark, stoned processional burrowing into malarial climes where guitars squawk in ominous tongues while congas cave in chests and clear brush with a vengeance. "Raagini" magnifies and psychedelicizes Rapoons mantric, ritualistic hand-drum patter and tropical-forest drones while hinting at Don Cherrys jazz-raga peregrinations. High Wolf claims that "Haiti" was "recorded in a couple of hours [on] the day of the big earthquake in Haiti, so its the darkest / saddest High Wolf track ever." Its a fittingly miasmic, climactic threnody. Think of Atlas Nation as a surreal aural travelogue that takes a giant step beyond Jon Hassells "Fourth World" music-a humid milieu teeming with alien tonalities and oracular currents. Its as welcome as a new, improved entheogen on the streets." - Holy Mountain.

The word "Klangmutationen" means "Sound Mutations" or "Sound Changes." Klangmutationen (excluding American MR. G) hail from a small town on the west coast of Malaysia called Klang. Although no Teutonic connection has ever been found to exist between the German word and the origins of the towns name, it is nevertheless a happy coincidence for the group. Sonically, Klangmutationen marries the heavier and primitive side of Krautrock with the relentless ferocity of avant-jazz-in particular the style expressed by early FMP releases and the Japanese variety as chiefly approached by the Takayanagi/Abe school. Other influential elements are the countless avant jazz/rock outfits who have surfaced throughout the decades-particularly jazz ensembles with loud electric guitars: Last Exit, New Direction Unit, the Blue Humans (and the Arthur Doyle Quartet feat.

Unlike so many other instrumental soundtrack bands who employ ho-hum, choose-your-own-adventure tactics, LA OTRACINA sticks to the rails of their own twisting corkscrews and spine-snapping dives. This work does not lend itself to the standard-fare apathy of background music. Blood Moon Raiders is its own ride, with its own ticket, and the doors are locked after take-off. Pinch some headphones to your dome and situate the rest of your form into a beanbag as you navigate the fibrous landscape of a black-light poster. The tracks flow from a subtle new-age contingency to violent bouts with Laotian street gangs. Remember to pack a sack lunch and strap on a machete before mounting this electric buck-bot.

La Otracinas new double-album is the first to feature drummer Kriney as lead vocalist, which catapults the trio into their most cohesive and focused release to date. Reality Has Got to Die showcases the bands mind-blowing ability to evoke the timeless space-rock magic of Hawkwind, the prog-improv wizardry of King Crimson, the fuck-yeah of early Metallica, and the synthesizer mind-warp of Tangerine Dream, all fused in a Krautrock state of mind. This musical journey through deep and heavy sound worlds envokes images of the emerald beyond and the darkest future alien universe, while also staying rooted in the tradition of rock n rolls ever-winding history. But dont confuse this for faux-New-Age blabber-this is street-wise and from the gut, straight from the minds of three men living their art, sacrificing everything and manifesting a boundless sphere of music, ideas, and imagery.

Taking heavy nods from psychedelic forefathers (Flower Travelin Band, Guru Guru, King Crimson, Neu!, Yes, Agitation Free, Blue Cheer, Amon Duul, etc.), their music is also rooted in a deep understanding and appreciation of free jazz/improvisation and the wizardry of minimalism - not to mention the extreme sounds of the Japanese underground. La Otracinas brew of cosmic music is a ride across the galaxy, a slice of magical lemon wedges, a rainbow of crystallized comet dust. La Otracina is Adam Kriney on drums, Ninni Morgia on electric guitar, and Jordon Schranz on electric bass.

"Yep, the bands name is LESBIAN (members of GOLGOTHAN SUNRISE, ASVA, and THE ABODOX). Why? Well, equally cool names like Black Sabbath, Venom and Pentagram were already taken. But also, the name Lesbian evokes pure, sexually charged freedom-and thats what rock music is all about. But enough about the name, lets talk about the Lesbian sound; its heavy, melodic, dramatic and dynamic. The Seattle-based quartets multifaceted debut album Power Hr heralds the birth of The New Wave of American Psychedelic Metal. Each of the albums four tracks shifts moods, dynamics and styles. In any given song, Lesbian deftly lunges from black metal-style blast-beat-and-16th-note-guitar-lines into 70s styled stoner rock riffing and then leaps into lush melodic passages reminiscent of Godspeed You Black Emperor!. The band blends the best elements of many styles of metal: doom, thrash, black, progressive and, yes, even good old "heavy" metal. Produced by RANDALL DUNN (Sunn O))), Boris, Earth) and packaged with artwork designed by STEPHEN OMALLEY." - Holy Mountain.

"STEVEN WRAY LOBDELLs (DAVIS REDFORD TRIAD) second full-length solo album for Holy Mountain was recorded live in December in a small Portland, Oregon donut shop (actually on a loft above the toilet), and unleashes some of Lobdells most over-the-top torrents of Echoplexed guitar frenzy. Elliptical, psychedelic rhythms merge with his trademark fat guitar signal to produce intense leads that demand comparison to an ocean on fire or planet-sized sunspots. John McLaughlin meets Wolf Eyes. Amazing stuff." - Holy Mountain.

"LORDS OF FALCONRY are a rock group with a spectacular psychedelic edge. Songs blast green, inferno-like hard rock, funneling clouds and stripping away sludge, turning it into the waltz-like sound of mastodons stomping across the tundra. Classic heavy psych is alive in tracks that interweave soft voices and loud guitars that continuously pummel and enchant at every turn like a seven-headed cobra. C.S. Lewis had better watch his step! If psychedelia is quixotically naive, then LORDS OF FALCONRY is its 21st-century doppelganger or spectral double wise to the ways of the fallen world. In an era of organized play dates and close parental supervision, there are already enough people ready to cooperate. LORDS OF FALCONRY offers what is missing-real rock music. Formed in a quest to find the lost note, LORDS OF FALCONRY examines the intersection of a mystical crossroads between the fourth dimension and their own 3-D universe. Since both members are a bit insolent and rather unrealistic about much of reality, the fact that LORDS OF FALCONRY even exists is remarkable in and of itself. LP includes a free download." - Holy Mountain.

"MAMMATUS are a new four piece rock band from Santa Cruz, California. The album consists of four long tracks, the longest, "Dragon of the Deep Part 2" clocks in at a staggering 25 minutes long. With an excess of fuzz and wah noise they manage to combine all the best b-its of 70s psychedelic rock with the sonic attack of early Monster Magnet as they simultaneously enter the realm of heavy drone sludge rock. The sleeve of this album was crafted by ARIK ROPER who has also worked with likes of Sleep, Sunn O))), Comets on Fire and Arthur Magazine. Since forming at the begining of 2005 Mammatus have been playing regularly in their native town of Santa Cruz and in venues in San Fransisco, which has gathered them lots of praise and interest. They are embarking on an intense nation wide tour with their friends Residual Echoes this summer. A deluxe vinyl version is upcoming." -Holy Mountain.

Price: $13.00
"MAMMATUS second album The Coast Explodes straddles the line between psychedelia and hard rock while introducing more progressive aspects. The music is heavily influenced by both the power and complexity of the natural world and the ongoing battles of light and darkness. "Excellent Swordfight" is a continuation of the same story told in the debuts epic "Dragon of the Deep." "Pierce the Darkness" explores being a light in a dark world. "The Changing Wind" is a pipe-led psychedelic folk tune that could have been sited by Ghosts Second Time Around and the shanga vibes of the forest in the Autumn. It unfurls into the title track which encapsulates the massive fury of the ocean. For fans of similar Holy Mountain artists Om, Lesbian, or Residual Echoes." - VHF.

"Utterances into a dictophone from a backdoor man hiding in the closet as the husband arrives home. The tales plod along in whispers, accompanied by defined guitar interplay, punctuated piano and snappy drums. Nearly every accent of guitar seems present. Fragile flamenco plucks, fuzz-to-the-front fumblings onto smooth lyrics of a detective attempting to resolve his own crimes. Vocals and acoustic guitar were recorded by GREG WEEKS. The arrangements, instrumentation and production were lovingly handled by JONATHAN WILSON. ILYA MONOSOV is a member of SHINING PATH and MONOSOV/SWIRNOFF DUO. While those musics were often meant to be visceral and joyous, Sailor Man presents whispers from one person to another, ruminative meditations on loss of places and people.

Variations on a Theme is comprised of three long songs employing a series of rhythmic chants whose cadence-like textural drive conveys flight. The albums numerous lyrics serve as symbolist vehicles to a state outside the field of time and space. Variations on a Theme is a series of vibrations and flow. The opening track,On The Mountain at Dawn is the thematic blueprint of the entire album; a transportive series of differentiated verse with sets of solid groove.

If you think that once the music hits the air and it can no longer be "contained," then your needle hasnt slid through this groove because its heavier than a flightless bird. MR. CHASNY doesnt remove anything from the scale either. His side, "Assyrian Blood," contains what seems to be subliminal fuzz/noise blips-like bugs hitting your windshield except that you can hear them.

"Underground cartoonist KEIZO MIYANISHI left behind one of the greatest documents from the 1980s. Self-released on his own Cupid & Psyche label, the single contains two songs, "Cortigiana dal velo" and "Mune o tutunde," which pair guitars and bass over some of the most tripped-out drum programming of all time. This psychedelic masterpiece ranks alongside the first White Stains 7-inch as one of the all-time greatest from the era. There is an outtake from these sessions, "Haha nareba koso," which is just as amazing, and the three songs would fit in a Terminal Boredom discussion about acid punk classics from Crawling Chaos to Chrome.  In 2007, ONNA reappeared and released a double-CDR with his partner, dancer BARAE. A track appeared on PSFs Tokyo Flashback 6, and the label also released an album titled Katawa in 2008. In addition to the studio material from the 7-inch, this CD includes two outtakes from Katawa, a solo piece from an obscure cassette release, and four live tracks from 1983 featuring a young MICHIO KURIHARA (WHITE HEAVEN, GHOST, BORIS) on second guitar. These are the first Kurihara recordings and come from a long-deleted double live Onna CD released in the early 1990s. This CD is packaged in a mini-LP sleeve with a booklet reproducing flyers, photos and posters from the era. Miyanishi and Onna have made significant but largely unnoticed contributions to the Japanese underground. Hopefully this release will vastly expand their profile worldwide." -Holy Mountain.

Well, you might wanna strap on a stronger carabiner before scaling these cliffs because youre more likely to discover pop gems than a stoned mystic in a cave. Organ is an anthem of Southern California patriotism with all the thrills of dragging in Lodi and peyote-munched soul-wandering in Silver Lake. This album is power-pop perfection, the Paisley Underground finally done right. Theres a big difference between playing every instrument and being a one-man band. Suffice it to say that ADAM PAYNE (RESIDUAL ECHOES) is a one-man band akin to Emitt Rhodes broadcast over solid-state transmitters. Maybe Grant Hart has the better voice while Bob Mould churned out better lyrics. What if the Kirkwoods melded into a creature that couldnt punch itself? Adam Payne, as one band, has made an LP that matches the chops and hooks of Captain Trundlows Sky Company or the bits of The Only Ones that are consistently lifted. The rumors that Payne was asked to produce the next Mudcrutch album have yet to be confirmed. Organ opens like Up The Academy but ends like Zabriskie Point in frustrated abandon that only leaves the listener wiser. Includes a free MP3 download." -Holy Mountain

"After returning to their native state of California from a national tour, RESIDUAL ECHOES went in to the studio immediately, for their most cohesive effort yet. California is comprised of four songs. "White Cloud" and "Julie Patchouli" could be called "pop songs," and they are rock and roll to the fullest, but also ensconced in luscious, freak-out arrangements further enhanced by a select group of special guests. The second side of the LP is a suite dedicated to the state of California complete with references ranging from the construction of the railroads, the natural beauty of the land and the mating rituals of elephant seals. It ends with a distorted take on Los Angeles via UK-colored glasses with the title track which erupts into epic, pulsing, skronk-raunch riffs that cease to abate for the duration of the songs 10-minute length (all the while making references to summer, SST records, earthquakes and helicopters flying through the streets of Hollywood seeking out pillaging Slayer fans. Really. Its all there). The fourth release of deep-fried, DIY psych-rock from Santa Cruz guitarist ADAM PAYNE . For fans of Comets On Fire, Monoshock, and the Golden State." - Holy Mountain.

"In the grand tradition of albums consisting of sidelong tracks, The Middle Path ranks among the best. How great is it? On the level of the latest opus by Decimus (NNCKs Pat Murano), Tangerine Dreams Zeit and Ash Ra Tempels first LP. Taking collage rock to college, band leader Adam Payne and drummer Matthew Clark present their loftiest contribution yet to the out­rock canon. They let their freak flag fly high, but with a disciplined air. "Bush Pij / Sometimes" starts with a bulbous, stunt­rock charge that evokes first­four­albums Black Sabbath, Thin Lizzy and the heaviest parts of Focuss Hocus Pocus. Headbanging passages full of torrid, florid guitar solos and the kind of explosive drumming will make fans of Bill Ward and Keith Moon paradiddle all over themselves. Later, an ominous tolling redolent of Sonic Youths "Halloween" conjures a beautifully haunting, desolate comedown. What a trip. But this is mere warm­up for "A Marriage," the pinnacle of Residual Echoes career and one of 2013s most excellent and action ­packed tracks. Motorik bliss boogie with flute gently fluctuate in the airstream, bolstered by burbling bass, gull­cry guitar and nipple gongs. Around six­ and­ a ­half minutes in, things get incredibly anthemic in a Meat Puppets Up on the Sun way. Bonus: The guitar solo at the twelve minute mark flares and curlicues like Wayne Rogers on the worlds best trucker speed. Near the end, a strangulated feedback concerto carries the listener bewilderedly to the runoff groove. The Middle Path turns out to be the righteous route." - Holy Mountain

"The new 12-inch from THE SHINING PATH- ILYA MONOSOV AND PRESTON SWIRNOFF. While their eponymous album exists in the world of post-SST black-clad psychedelia and noise, the group decided that they had gone far enough in said direction and realigned themselves. Chocolate Gasoline has a less harsh demeanor, a la Accelerator-era Royal Trux if the Stones-meter was set a little closer to "Under Cover of the Night" than "Dancin with Mr. D," especially on the opener, "Lonely Hearts Killer." The remaining tracks stretch out via influences ranging from hard dub, early PiL, no wave, block-banging hip hop, and kraut-dance/industrial, if one could imagine a version of Viva more about bikinis than white overalls. Nonetheless, all of this can be played with real instruments and "rocked out" in a live setting, which is what the group intends to do." - Holy Mountain.

"While the acoustic based projections of Six Organs of Admittance have been pigeonholed by some as a chance-operated celestial jam unit, the group has always been about songs, and nowhere is this more apparent than on their fourth full length album, an eight-song cycle that mixes the strengths of Ben Chasnys acoustic and electric guitar with his knack for placing this on top of disparate and subtle atmospheric backgrounds. The live favorite (and rare single) Somewhere Between has been redone and finalized in a fantastic new version featuring sitar by Comets on Fires Ethan Miller. The delicate acoustic strum of the album is challenged at the end of the record on the epic Only the Sun Knows, which features some extremely heavy electric destruction guitar from Mr. Miller before Chasny takes back control and lands the album on solid ground." - Holy Mountain.

Eight incredible tracks seamlessly blend powerful blues foot-stomp, backward interludes, strange strings feedback, dark, tabla-infused vibrations, and the amazing debut of Chasnys electric guitar as a lead instrument.Minds can only be blown by this album.

"Holy Mountain is beside itself with the limited edition reissue of Dust & Chimes by Six Organs of Admittance, Ben Chasnys second amazing, underground folk-psych project from behind Californias Redwood curtain. Heavy, acoustic guitar and mumbled vocalizations merge with out-there jamming in a style that has been compared to guys with LPs on Takoma, though Dust & Chimes is actually closer than anyone else is ever going to come to pantsing the first two Tyrannosaurus Rex albums. The sun is tanging, people. Really. - Holy Mountain. "After a brief, textural opening, Dust and Chimes rekindles the aplomb of "Visnu" with a mortal vs. guitar death dance called "Assyria"; it soon subsides into a calmer, introspective mood. The simple riffs are rooted in American folk, but suggestive of an Ottoman court. Six Organs stick with bare-bones song arrangements - most cuts are just dressed up with overdubbed chimes and bells, and three are direct-to-tape acoustic slices. The understated nature of the songs - often serving primarily as launch pads for extended acoustic extemporization - dictates that the album grows on the listener rather than convinces in a single play. The solos are delicate, subdued, as is the album as a whole. The structure to the songs may be too similar, but the mood is so pleasant that one barely notices, especially since the songs are broken up by other types of pieces." -Muckraker.

"Ben Chasny was on a holy roll when he laid down the eleven tracks on Dust and Chimes. It was 1998 and yall were floating on that Bill Clinton peace-and-prosperity bubble. Meanwhile, Chasny had dropped his self-titled debut LP earlier that year, and the cognoscenti and illuminati were pricking up their ears. Dust and Chimes announced the arrival of a brow-furrowed troubadour whose complex, morosely beautiful guitar playing didnt Basho you over the head with Fahey-isms. The three solo guitar tracks here contain quicksilver skeins of glinting acoustic work, recorded over a decade before the American Primitive style of playing would be of any interest to the indie world. Brilliant darkness and somber ecstasy abound, as Chasny ragas against the machine with a bold inventiveness. Elsewhere one may hear hints of Tyrannosaurus Rexs impish arboreal-folk charm and feathery Donovan-esque incantations -- reverent but not lightweight in the least. Now newly remastered, Dust and Chimes sounds like the work of a young sage wise beyond his tears." - Holy Mountain.

What really sets Chasny apart from the other modern Fahey worshipers is that Chasnys pantheon is willing to accept a wider array of other guitarists into the lexicon -- Peter Walker or Richard Youngs, for example -- not to mention the fact that he can stand the sound of a Stratocaster.

"In 1998 Ben Chasny self-released an LP of his "acoustic based project[ions]" under the name Six Organs of Admittance. The resulting five-song LP is a masterpiece of diverse elements using acoustic and electric guitars, a detuned violin, organ, electronics and koto. The material covers a lot of ground: theres an acid folk duet, an epic, three-part space suite, and two short concrète-like pieces that entice hidden memories of having bees in your mouth. The final sting is the magnificent chaos of "Race from Visnu"-- a nine-minute raga in which the strings of the acoustic guitar are battled by Chasny who ruthlessly punishes them for their ability to make sound. In addition, Chasny has also included two bonus tracks from an elusive 8-inch lathe-cut that was sold to cover the cost of a plane ticket. Holy Mountain is proud to be able to make this music available once again. Rare 1998 LP reissued on CD with two rarer bonus tracks, all on CD for the first time." - Holy Mountain.

"Originally released 20 years ago, Metallic Diseases is the most intense blast of guitar squalling heat never to find its proper audience. Truly unhinged at times ("Cans"), sublimely dreamlike and understated at others ("Shake Off"), this debut album fuses the best lineage of droning, hard-rocking sounds ("USA" makes a perfect amalgam of Suicides "Rocket USA" and the Stooges "1969") with a gestalt that pushes it right over the cliff, as "Western Man" is the kind of prophetic call to arms that Spacemen 3 tried to communicate through "Revolution" (itself a rewrite of "Black to Comm"). The few who heard this LP when it was released flipped out, as it deserved to be lauded along with its immediate precursors like Union Carbide Productions and Les Thugs-that rare blend of punk / noise / psych / groove that they just never made enough of to go around. Indeed, the LP was almost impossible to find Stateside at the time, leaving the few diehards to put it on want lists in MRR.

This time around, multi-instrumentalist and sound sculptor Tomlinson has assembled a full-fledged rock group. On their self-titled new release, infernal and primitive energies mingle with the bucolic reveries that won him previous acclaim. "Open Lighted Doorway" begins the album with a glimmer of the pastoral sounds that mark Tomlinsons earlier recordings, soaked in reverb as if corrupted by time; the monolithic "Kommune" follows with rolling guitars and rhythmic layers of primal percussion. "The Burning Mountain" erupts like flames from an Anatolian mirage-a tide from the East. The purely acoustic "Dry Leaves" offers the listener a momentary respite before "Dalaelven" breaks the spell with its vertiginous howl. This blinding acid haze is broken only by the stripped-down vocal harmonies of the introspective closer "Disappearances."

"Transformation" channels prime-time Hawkwind, evoking that sense of zooming headlong in endless flight with every atom buzzing. The staunch, towering riffs of "X Ray" are as foreboding as the next report from the EPA. This is White Mannas idea of a power ballad... until it accelerates in the last minute and leaves the listener blissfully charred. The speedy yet smooth "Im Comin Home" could be the recurring theme for that impossible sequel to Easy Rider, while the ten-minute "Illusion of Illusion" simmers with astral, meditative menace-a massive, billowing specimen of rock that glows like the earths inner core. The epic finale, "Solar Returns," is as majestic and momentous a climax as one would expect from these profound pros, whose singleness of purpose remains irrepressible and righteous. LP includes a download." -Holy Mountain.

"WHITE/LICHENS is the collaboration between MATT CLARK and JEREMY LEMOS heavy guitar drone group WHITE/LIGHT and ROBERT LOWEs LICHENS, who adds his voice, guitar and piano. While White/Lights name was inspired by the Velvets feedback-drenched "White Light/White Heat," they also claim as influences Earth 2, Fripp and Eno, and the guitar solo on the title track from Maggot Brain. The albums five tracks are named after demons from the Goetia, evoked and compelled into obedience by King Solomon, contained in a bronze vessel that was sealed with magic symbols. As a result, the music is alight with giant, pulsating fire storms of oceanic sound and shorter pieces that are the sonic equivalent to opening cans containing mechanical dreams. There is a magic to these sounds that surely goes back to that first electronic musician in Egypt over 2,000 years ago. The tools might be different but the spectacular results are the same." - Holy Mountain.

"... one LP what got a lotve play while I was gone was the debut by WHOS YOUR FAVORITE SON, GOD? and man, is it a keeper! Seeem live down at SXSW was great, but the record fans the flames of hybridized (post) prog-swoggle and (proto) metal-mania like just about nobody else. Whos Your Favorite Son, God? ably combine the dramatic and operatic pretense of Magma with the cool, aggressive delivery of MX-80 Sound and if youre thinkin "thats somethin I gotta hear," youre right. My mom (remember her?) says they sound like Mahavishnu Orchestra shouldve if they were men (once you hear this youll know what she means). Even the little Greek dude who delivers my beer opined "everything that Heavy The World isnt, Whos Your Favorite Son, God? is." And who am I to argue with a Greek? They invented civilization, buster!

Price: $14.00
"How many music bloggers does it take to change a lightbulb? None, computer screens are backlit. Here we have a WOODEN SHJIPS record the world saw coming-not titled II, Sophomore, or Second, but Dos. The group maintains its strident pace like a silverfish rave in perfectly folded bedsheets, with more bounce per ounce as life goes jogging with bopping heads and digging heels. Five numbers whose style might fit as cozily at La Cave in 1968 as at Ibiza in 1988. Natural loops with just enough vocals take you where the khakis and the cut-offs play together. Dos sounds off as the inauguration speech of a group accepting the minimalist psych bop crown that once adorned the likes of Neu and Loop. If possible, their brand of whipping fuzz hooks have gotten groovier. Wooden Shjips debut album and various singles have established them as one of the best psych bands to inhabit this earthly realm.

A brief description casts them as black metals answer to Throbbing Gristle. The texture-based rendering of their compositions sails them on a strange sea between song and sound effect as it bobs along the waves like a dead mans bottled message. Aspects of Goblin rehearsals in dead hills is interrupted as Monster Zero carves mountain sides with lightning breath. Oscillating leads pummel into churning riffs as if "Caledonia" was performed in an echo chamber near Lodi, New Jersey. The extrinsic properties of this work may result in disambiguation." - Holy Mountain. Features Sam Meringue (aka Explorers (Not Not Fun), James Ferraros 90210 etc).

Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"ZDRASTVOOTIEs 2 is a perplexing album. It folds the far corners of some of the worlds most out-there progressive rock with deep, deliberate singer-songwriter type vocals and lyrics. It is both a collection of confusing, dark and fragmented meditations and defiantly odd music, yet it is far more accessible and playful than one would expect. The recorded debut of DREW ADAMs vocals is imposing and grand-he sings like a crooner. The album is still marked by the groups gifts as songwriters and players, as the songs are disjointed and the arrangements abrasive. The material is achingly beautiful, and lovely melodies appear throughout the release. This new album will sound, to most, like no other music on Earth." - Holy Mountain.

"A few years ago Santa Cruz avant-rock group ZDRASTVOOTIE decided to ditch their vocalist and concentrate on the unique interplay they had begun to achieve with two guitars and drums. This new configuration recorded an album of material that was eventually scrapped because their sound had morphed into something different by the time everything was ready to go. Zdrastvootie are currently a very focused entity, with increasingly complex songs a la King Crimson, Hampton Grease Band or Doc at the Radar Station-era Magic Band. While they have recently added a bassist, and guitar-player DREW ADAMS has begun to sing, Zdrastvootie still orbits this zone and will continue to until you are very aware that they practice all the time." - Holy Mountain.

"A lot of people mention the "L" word when talking (or whispering) about Asa Osborne. Its not Lungfish were talking about here (he was their guitar player), but rather "Levine," as in Keith Levine. It seems Mr. Osborne witnessed a fight with Keith Levine as one of the combatants. Levine subsequently lost a tooth and--this is the strange part--Osborne grabbed it and has used the tooth as a guitar pick ever since. Weird.  Zomes self-titled album is full of beautiful Seesselberg-sized chunks of loop-like melodies that effervesce while Osborne brings them to life. There is a cinematic quality to the material here that recalls "library music," East German Indianerfilmen soundtracks, and even Blues Control at their most humid." - Holy Mountain.

"Known for his recent collaborative record with SUN ARAW and THE CONGOS, not to mention as a member of ROBEDOOR, POCAHAUNTED and a host of other bands, M. GEDDES GENGRAS steps out on his own for a proper full-length, operating under his god-given name. Here Gengras lets loose with two LP sides of sprawling synthscapes. Test Leads calls to mind Klaus Schulzes Dune album or perhaps the Dune soundtrack scored by Toto and Brian Eno, but will also appeal to fans of Conrad Schnitzler and Manuel Gottsching, as well as Robert Hampson (Loop, Main), Bill Laswell, Roger Eno and Nurse With Wound. Thrown into the mix is some Sky Records / Wolfgang Riechmann-style (cold) poppiness. In a contemporary setting, Gengras could share a bill with anyone from the modern indie / pop / weirdo / drone scenes and fit right in. His suites range from odd pinball-esque plinking to cold, dystopian soundscapes, touching on all points between; Test Leads would sound good alongside releases on Mordant Music, Touch Music or Innovative Communication. These tracks could easily score the original Tron, The Black Hole or just about any episode of Nova. Includes digital download coupon." -Holy Mountain/Intercoastal Artists.

"..great individualist punk rock much in the same way Half Japanese is. There are times where you have to say "What the fuck?" and that is good. Man, I really dig this record. Refreshingly no bullshit and all its own thing." �?? Scott Soriano, S-S Records. "Wow! A lotta punk singles pass through here and most go unnoted because theyre so by the numbers.  The debut record by New Jerseys Homeblitz, Apocalyptic Grades 2005 AD (Homeblitz 7"), is a different kettle of stink.  Although one senses that the underlying concept is not inimical to the concept of pop-punk, the execution goes far beyond that.  The final track, "Hey!" does have the same kind of lost yard jumble classicism as, say, Mike Fornatales "Kickin Chickens", but the lead off tune has an avant-pumice edge that recalls nothing less than The Electric Eels "Cyclotron".  And 28 years after the fact, I can still remember my first hearing of that side, in Andy Schwartzs old pad on East 10th Street.  Since Ill be dead in another 28 years, this wont have the same kind of personal legs, but what the heck?" �??

Format: LP

Country: Australia
Price: $24.00
"K-85 is one of DAN MELCHIORs more song-based albums, with lo-fi electronic interludes interspersed between and occasionally through. Lyrical themes deal with some familiar standbys: isolation, daily humdrum, contempt for contemporary culture and a failure to be honest with ourselves. An occasional feigned Luddism might seem at odds with the bastard synthesising of traditional folk, but reflects more a weariness with his world from which solace can be found in the love of his wife LETHA. For those unaware, its an ideal album to begin their discovery of Dans amazingly rich, varied and consistent body of work-and as his first release on an Australian label we can hope that happens in spades-while his loyal fanbase need it as much as any of his previous releases. Let it be known that we here at Aarght Records are nursing a professional jealousy at Homeless coup in releasing K-85. This is a brilliant record." -Homeless.

Deep-indigo, dead-of-night enka, folk, and blues, inhaling Billie Holiday and Nina Simone down to the bone. A traditional waltz abuts Nico-style incantation; defamiliarized versions of Oscar Brown Jr. and Bessie Smith collide with big-band experiments alongside poet Shūji Terayama; a sitar-led psychedelic wig-out runs into a killer excursion in modal, spiritual jazz. Existentialism and noir, mystery and allure, hurt and hauteur. With excellent notes by Alan Cummings and the fabulous photographs of Hitoshi Jin Tamura.” - Honest Jons.

"Double LP version. For the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, the voyage to where they are now -- whether tearing up festivals from Glastonbury to Melbourne, or touring with Gorillaz, or recording their first album on Honest Jons -- has involved a necessary stepping away from their fathers shadow. Phil Cohran is the first to recognize this, happily allowing their sound -- heavy on the funk, with the urgency of hip-hop never far away -- to blossom. But likewise this album is for all of them a natural step. Recorded in Chicago in June 2011, the idea was beautifully simple -- "my music and their band." This is music that plumbs the depths and rings with joy." - Honest Jons.
