Artist: MAHER SHALAL HASH BAZ
Title: Cest La Derniere Chanson
Format: Double CD
Label: K
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Tori Kudo, the conductor and band leader of MAHER SHALAL HASH BAZ, fuses stray elements of pop, folk, jazz and experimental music into pieces of candid musical gestures. Cest La Derniere Chanson is a double album of songs composed by Kudo between 2005-2007. For the recordings, Kudo assembled nine musicians from Japan and bunkered down for six days in St. Pierre-Eglise, France. Bassoon, guitar, drums, trumpet, trombone, clarinet, glass percussion, organ, rocks and sticks are expanded by a sophisticated counter-repetition technique into an extensive tonal range of colors; the effect is at turns serene, dissonant, enchanting, crisp, spacious and maddeningly catchy. The future of music on Planet Earth. Listen closely, please." - K Records.

Title: LAutre Cap
Format: LP
Label: K
Country: USA
Price: $12.50
"Composing his music to be played by amateur musicians, TORI KUDO, the enigmatic conductor of MAHER SHALAL HASH BAZ, has been called "The Master of Mistake". On LAutre Cap he is a wickedly inspired bandleader, presenting a tight package of twenty-seven songs both fierce and fragile. Barely held together by the threads these songs seem just a note away from falling apart completely. The effect is at turns serene, dissonant, enchanting, rockin, and intensively catchy-fusing the most captivating elements of twisted jazz, psychedelic rock rebellion, and dreamy pop chamber music to form a most intimate and cohesive vision of the future of music on Planet Earth." - K.

Title: Lone Wolf & Cub OST
Format: LP
Label: K.O.
Country: France
Price: $35.00
"Rediscover in its vinyl release for the very first time the original soundtrack of the cult movie series in 6 parts played by the Baby Carts and produced by Kenji Misumi after the adaptation of famous manga entitled Lone Wolf & Cub, created by writer Kazuo Koike and artist Goseki Kojima. In medieval 17th century Japan, during the Edo period, Ogami Ittō, the implacable and stoic Shōguns executioner, played by legendary Tomisaburo Wakayama, is dismissed from his title and position as part as a masterplan plotted by the Yagyū clan. After the murder of his wife and the slaughter of all their household, Ogami Ittō throws himself into a blood battle to avenge the death of his clan and his disgrace by becoming a rōnin, a samourai with no lord or master. Together with his young son Daigorō, whom he wheels about in a stroller replete with weapons of all kinds, they become known from now on as Kozure Okami, which literally means Lone Wolf and Cub, they wander the country with an unwavering drive as an assassin-team to be hired by the highest bidder to avenge themselves in bloodshed and vowing to topple the Yagyū clan. As a result of an unexpected mixture of traditional Japanese music and psychedelic rock music with multiple echoing and resounding effects, as well as musical elements that are reminiscent of the blaxploitation film genre of the 1970s, these 24 tracks perfectly convey the dramatic stance and epic dimension of the series. Moving from dream-like and hypnotic passages played by an orchestra of violins and wind instruments to faster ones, in which the taiko - percussion instruments - gallop their way through the Japanese landscapes of this medieval fantasy, these compositions created by Hideaki Sakurai give pride of place to the shakuhachi, a typical Japanese bamboo flute. With its diverse and changing forms, Sakurais music takes on different shades that give it an atypical side ? at times funky, as in the Besieging Army of Ura Yagyu piece, it can also become more jazzy, as in the final theme of the Baby Cart In Peril. Although they keep their original identity, these rare instruments abound in influences and will ravish the fans of the series, but also more widely-speaking all music lovers, thanks to their overflowing of richness and inventiveness. This DELUXE edition comes with embossed sleeve, red vinyl, a poster reproducing the first part of the sagas original one, and an exclusive seven-inch single including 3 tracks from the TV series. LIMITED TO 500 copies only. Be quick or be dead!" - K.O.

Artist: ISHIKAWA, CHU
Title: Tetsuo OST
Format: LP
Label: Kaijyu-Theater
Country: Japan
Price: $24.00
"23 years after its first release on CD, the Original Soundtrack of the first two episodes of the famous trilogy Tetsuo, composed by Chu Ishikawa, is being released on vinyl record. This classic of Japanese underground cinema, directed by Shinya Tsuakamoto, first hit the big screen in 1989. Its mix of gore and science fiction paved the way for the cyberpunk movement in Japan. Tetsuo does not follow a classical film narrative but rather consists in a series of twisted sequences, which makes it unique and considered by many as a height of experimental cinema. It opens on a car crash where a man - the anti-hero of the film -- is hit by a car. His body then becomes a sort of magnet that inexorably attracts all the metal objects present in our society, slowly transforming him into a monster made of flesh and steel! The trilogys uncompromising and violent directing, supported by its original score, soon contributed to make it a classic. As a matter of fact, director Tsukamoto and composer Ishikawa managed to produce a sensory experience in which visual and hearing assaults go hand in hand to make it a total work of art. The film is at the crossroads of Metropolis, Videodrome and Blade Runner in its depiction of a post-industrial world where machines have surpassed humans and taken possession of their bodies. Chu Ishikawa, born in 1966, started his musical career in various bands when he was only 15 years old. He then gained some success as a founding member and percussionist of two industrial bands: Zeitlich Vergelter and Der Eisenrost. That is when he came to the attention of Tsukamoto, who asked him to compose the soundtrack of his film. Ishikawas transgressive and provocative music is the perfect sound illustration of the Tetsuo trilogy. Mixing techno drum loops with a dark ambient mood flirting with harsh noise, the Japanese composer translates the convulsive and metallic quality of Tsukamotos images into oppressive sound blasts that will delight the fans of Test Dept. Foetus and Esplendor Geometrico. Limited to 1000." - Kaijyu-Theater.

Artist: BITCHIN BAJAS
Title: Water Wrackets Film Score
Format: LP/DVD
Label: Kallistei
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"It appears that the well-guarded secret of the past year is out. Last summer COOPER CRANE of BITCHIN BAJAS & CAVE was asked to score a remake of the classic short film Water Wrackets (1975) originally directed by legendary British filmmaker, PETER GREENAWAY. Artists/filmmakers GABRIELLE GOPINATH and BENJAMIN FUNKE (Captcha Records) will be releasing the fruits of this project on their new fine art label, Kallistei. After only viewing a 30 second clip of the upcoming film, Cooper composed a wonderfully enlightened vision of this project that would make both Terry Riley and collaborator Bruce Conner to happy to see the torches being passed. It is fascinating to see someone this talented work through the conceptual landscape of a project and create something this beautiful and intriguing. Cooper in the depth of his practice, harmonized perfectly and completely on this recording. Packged in tip-on style gatefold sleeves with DVD and poster included." - Kallistei

Title: Complete Song Books
Format: Double LP
Label: Karlrecords
Country: Germany
Price: $26.00
”… to consider the Song Books as a work of art is nearly impossible. Who would dare? It resembles a brothel, doesnt it?" --John Cage. “Complete Song Books, volume three in the Perihel series on Karlrecords, along with La Legende dEer (KR 024LP, 2016) and Douze Inventions en Six Modes De Jeu (KR 028LP, 2015), is dedicated to one of the most iconic composers of 20th century, John Cage. All 92 pieces of Song Books are presented here, with stunning interpretations by Reinhold Friedl, recorded at Rashad Beckers Clunk Studio who also contributed live electronics. John Cage (1912-1992) is one of the most important composers in modern music: with more than 250 compositions, many of which are considered key works of new music, and theoretical essays on composition, he significantly changed the way we think about and perceive music today. But Cage not only left a major impact in the academic world, he is also cited as an important inspiration by a wide range of diverse musicians from younger generations, be it electronic producers, experimentalists or noise artists. His Song Books, published 1970 in three volumes, is a collection of open works that contains not only songs, but a strange hybrid collection of compositions, graphic scores, meditation rules, experimental settings, absurd musical instructions, performance settings, musical references, and fluxus-inspired actions such as eating fruits or drinking cognac (Cage loved whiskey and cognac). When Reinhold Friedl (director of the ensemble Zeitkratzer) entered the Clunk Studio to record the whole cycle with Rashad Becker (who handled the feedback cabinet and live electronics), the idea was quite simple: to approach each single piece in an informal way but to do all 92 pieces in the right order. What came out in the end is a kaleidoscopic lecture and interpretation of the compositions with the help of a strange mixture of ancient and modern tools: new electronics, old and special microphones, self-built instruments, arbitrary garbage sounds, sophisticated live-electronics devices, and quotes. Complete Song Books turns out to be an early hymn for sonic freedom, a sonic promenade full of beautiful references. Constructed by Reinhold Friedl. Performed by: Reinhold Friedl - voice, toys, wooden games, metal objects, complex objects, microphones, garbage, ... ; Rashad Becker - feedback cabinet, live electronics. Mastered and cut at D&M, Berlin. 180 gram vinyl in an edition of 500; Includes insert and download code. Artwork by Lillevan.” - Karlrecords.

Artist: REIBEL, GUY
Title: Douze Inventions en Six Modes de Jeu
Format: LP
Label: Karlrecords
Country: Germany
Price: $21.00
“Karlrecords kicks off its Perihel series with previously unreleased material by GRM member Guy Reibel, one of the most enigmatic figures of the 20th centurys electronic avant-garde. 180-gram LP including download code and insert with liner notes byReinhold Friedl (zeitkratzer). Limited edition of 500 copies. Guy Reibel (born 1936) started out with a double qualification; he first became an engineer and then studied composition in Paris with Olivier Messiaen, teacher of Karlheinz Stockhausen,Iannis Xenakis, François Bayle, to name just a few. Pierre Schaeffer, the director of the Groupe de Recherches Musicales (GRM), soon offered him a chance to edit and work out the famous 1967 Solfège de LObjet Sonore three-LP box (the practical part of his theoretical manifest Traité des objets musicaux), and to codirect the class for electroacoustic music at the National Music Conservatory. During that period Reibel worked intensively in the studios of the GRM. Not only did he compose some milestones of electronic music, he also developed a very music-based theory of electronic music, implementing ideas of musical gesture and game theory -- in the 60s, long before anyone else discussed those issues. Conflicts with other members of the GRM led to Reibels departure from the group (though he had been considered Schaeffers successor as director), and Reibel toured the world as conductor of his newly-founded Groupe Vocale de France (who realized the first complete recording of Ligetis choir work) and took over a directors position at Radio France. Meanwhile, his electronic music almost disappeared (there were only two or three LPs available on the early GRM series, later just one CD). Douze inventions en six modes de jeu was digitized by Reibel and Friedl at the GRM studios in December 2014 as part of the archive of Reibels electronic pieces. Its a milestone in electronic music and a perfect example of Reibels musical austerity, in which defined, limited musical material results in concentrated and dense forms. The unusually vital character of the music is also due to Reibels use of hybrid sound production; he often combined amplitude envelopes of acoustic sounds and noises (especially of polysteron) with synthetic electronic sounds. A few of the pieces are even played at least partly live. This album documents how Guy Reibel succeeded at composing a music that combines the density and purity of electronic music with an unbelievably sensuous sound. A real listening experience, here released for the very first time.” - Karlrecords.

Artist: REICH/ENSEMBLE AVANTGARDE, STEVE
Title: Four Organs/Phase Patterns/Pendulum Music
Format: LP
Label: Karlrecords
Country: USA
Price: $21.00
“Three early compositions (1968-1970) by Steve Reich, one of the most prolific exponents of minimal music, in stunning interpretations by the critically-acclaimed Ensemble Avantgarde. Available on vinyl for the first time ever. Steve Reich (born 1936) is undoubtedly one of the key figures in 20th century contemporary music, and along with Terry Riley or Philip Glass, one of the founding fathers of so-called minimal music. With classics like "18 Musicians," "Drumming," or "Different Trains," the American composer proved himself one of "a handful of living composers who can legitimately claim to have altered the direction of musical history" (The Guardian). The four pieces on this collection date back to the time before his famous masterpieces (1967-1970): "Four Organs" and "Phase Patterns" build on short, repeated patterns that gradually go in and out of phase with each other, creating "a shimmering matrix of sound that is both hypnotic and fascinating in detail" (Allmusic.com) and anticipate Reichs later trademark sound. "Pendulum Music" is a process piece where only a few starting parameters are given: four microphones are suspended within an array of amplifiers and speakers, then set in motion -- the shifts in feedback as they move in space create the music, and the results differ with each new performance (as can be experienced listening to the two versions here). Reichs early works are presented on this LP in stunning interpretations by Leipzig-based Ensemble Avantgarde, whose dedicated, inspired renditions of essential masterpieces of modernism (documented on CDs on reputed labels such as Wergo or Hat Hut Records) won them the Ernst von Siemens Foundation Prize and the Schneider-Schott Prize of Mainz. 180 gram, gatefold sleeve, download code. Ensemble Avantgarde: Steffen Schleiermacher (organ, piano, electronics), Josef Christof (organ, piano), Michael Obst (organ), Klaus Steffes-Holländer (organ), Stefan Stopora (maracas), and Martin Demmler (electronics).” - Karlrecords.

Artist: SUBOTNICK, MORTON
Title: Silver Apples of the Moon
Format: LP
Label: Karlrecords
Country: Germany
Price: $21.00
"As composer, musician and initiator of the San Francisco Tape Music Center which he cofounded with Pauline Oliveros and Ramon Sender in 1961, Morton Subotnick (born 1933) has propelled the progress of electronic music in several significant ways. From 1963 on he worked with Don Buchla on the development of the early synthesizer Buchla Series 100 before moving to New York where the artist-in-residence at the newly established Tisch School of the Arts of New York University was enabled to set up his own studio. Thats where Subotnicks most popular work Silver Apples of the Moon was commissioned by DECCA as the first electronic composition ever that was especially conceived for a vinyl release (in opposition to the common practice of performing live). Until the current day, this seminal album has not lost its visionary power and has long been considered one of the essential milestones in electronic music with a great impact on later generations of artists, starting from the cult formation Silver Apples to Laika, who titled their debut Silver Apples of the Moon, too. Now for the first time since its original 1967 release, Subotnicks masterpiece (which was selected for the Library of Congress in 2009) has finally been made available on vinyl at last: a new audiophile 180 gram LP that was carefully remastered for vinyl. Limited to 500 copies worldwide." -Karlrecords.

Title: The Wild Bull
Format: LP
Label: Karlrecords
Country: Germany
Price: $21.00
"Re-issued on vinyl for the first time since its original 1968 release! Based on an ancient Sumerian poem, Morton Subotnicks follow-up to his highly influential milestone Silver Apples of the Moon (KR 014LP) is no less an adventurous sonic trip on the Buchla synthesizer. Limited edition (500 items) audiophile 180 gram LP, especially mastered for vinyl. Born in 1933, Morton Subotnick is a key figure in the progress of electronic music: along with Pauline Oliveros and Ramon Sender, he co-founded the San Francisco Tape Music Center in 1961 and from 1963 on he worked with Don Buchla on the development of the early synthesizer "Buchla Series 100." In 1967 the composer and musician released his debut Silver Apples of the Moon, which proved to be one of the most influential albums and an undoubted milestone in electronic music (which was even selected for the Library of Congress in 2009). A year later Morton Subotnick presented his adventurous follow-up, The Wild Bull. Loosely based on/inspired by an ancient Sumerian poem of the same name -- a lament about loss and death caused by war -- the two parts embark on further explorations into the hitherto unimagined creative possibilities of the synthesizer. Forty-six years after its initial release, The Wild Bull has not lost a single bit of its visionary magnitude and is still an adventurous sonic trip, finally available on vinyl again as an audiophile 180 gram LP that was cautiously remastered for vinyl. Limited to 500 items worldwide." - Karlrecords.

Artist: TONE/TALIBAM!/SAM KULIK, YASUNAO
Title: Double Automatism
Format: LP
Label: Karlrecords
Country: Germany
Price: $21.00
"New York Citys experimental duo Talibam! team up with Fluxus artist and electronic avant-gardist Yasunao Tone and trombonist Sam Kulik for a confrontational sonic attack, fired by an array of analog synths and other electronic devices. David Novak, author of Japanoise: Music at the Edge of Circulation (2013), on Double Automatism: "Bringing together the most calamitous materials from their home planets of noise, glitch, and free improvisation, Tone and Talibam! are at once the likeliest and unlikeliest of conspirators. Despite making his home in New York since 1971, Tones foundational electronic work harkens back to his early days in revolutionary Japanese avant-garde collectives Ongaku and Hi Red Center, and resonates with his groundbreaking deconstructions of digital CD sound in the 1980s. Meanwhile in the post-art worlds of millennial Brooklyn, Talibam! have cranked out their own absurd, profane, and unclassifiable improvisational style, bringing their provocations around the world, and proficiently mediating jazz, rock, and hip-hop along the way; trombonist Sam Kulik brings an acoustic element to the mix that invokes the live sonic mixes of Musica Elettronica Viva. In their collaboration Double Automatism, they forge a confrontational new alliance in the transnational history of experimental sound, with the noisiest consequences imaginable." The idea for Double Automatism was born in 2012 when Talibam! and Kulik were invited to interpret Tones graphic scores and game pieces as part of the Museum of Modern Arts 2013 exhibition, Tokyo 1955-1970: A New Avant-Garde. They soon met Tone and the group immediately developed a mutual affinity. Six months later the trio invited Tone for a recording session, with Kulik on trombone, Matt Mottel on his Roland Alpha Juno 1 analog synth, Kevin Shea (Mostly Other People Do the Killing) on electronic MIDI mallet percussion, and Tone using his self-developed MP3 Deviations on his computer. The two epic pieces on Double Automatism not only continue Talibam!s enduring explorations of new musical territory beyond genre limitations, but also forcefully testify to Tones unique artistry (previously documented on collaborations with Russell Haswell (EMEGO 142CD) and Florian Hecker and solo works on Tzadik and Asphodel). Pressed on 180-gram vinyl; presented in silk-screened sleeve; includes download code. Limited to 500 copies." - Karlrecords.

Artist: XENAKIS, IANNIS
Title: La Legende dEer
Format: LP
Label: Karlrecords
Country: Germany
Price: $21.00
"The second release in the Perihel series is one of the most famous electroacoustic compositions by Iannis Xenakis. When Iannis Xenakis (1922-2001), who had fought against the occupation as part of the communist resistance, moved to Paris in 1947 it was the start of a highly creative and impressive career. Xenakis not only studied composition with Olivier Messiaen and became one of the most innovative composers of the 20th century, he also worked as assistant to Le Corbusier and realized a.o. the Philips Pavilion for the World Exhibition in Brussels, 1958. His compositions often are based on mathematical principles (in 1966 he founded the CEMAMu - Centre dEtudes de Mathématique et Automatique Musicales), which give his music an unprecedented aesthetic and as The Guardian would say, a "shocking otherness". The most famous works of Xenakis, who won the Polar Music Prize (considered the unofficial Nobel Prize for music) in 1999, are his compositions for orchestra Metastasis, Pithoprakta and Terretektorh (where the 88 musicians are spread within the audience) and the electroacoustic compositions Persepolis, Concret PH, Bohor and La Légende dEer where Xenakis integrated his stochastic synthesis sounds for the first time. As legendary as this piece is, there is an impenetrable thicket of versions and stories around La Légende dEer, it exists in different releases, with wrong sample rates or digitized backwards. This version uses the 8-track-version that Xenakis himself presented at Darmstädter Ferienkurse in August of 1978. As the automatic spatialization is lost, this became the only original version of this composition and is presented here (mixed down to stereo by Martin Wurmnest who tried to preserve the spatial movements as perceptible as possible. La Légende dEer not only became a milestone of electroacoustic music but is also an important reference for noise and industrial musicians up to the present day. Mixed by Martin Wurmnest, mastered & cut by Rashad Becker, La Légende dEer is available here as 180 gram vinyl. Includes download code. Includes insert with liner notes by Reinhold Friedl." - Karlrecords.

Artist: ZEITKRATZER/KEIJI HAINO
Title: Live at Jahrhunderthalle Bochum
Format: LP
Label: Karlrecords
Country: Germany
Price: $21.00
"180 gram pressing, gatefold sleeve, limited to 500, includes download code. On his second release with Zeitkratzer, Keiji Haino concentrates solely on his voice. No electronics are used except for amplification. Nevertheless, this live recording is even more radical than the first one. Radical is the concentration on the very limited but frenetic musical material, worked out in detail, which is rarely heard in the noise context -- enabling Keiji Haino to sit on it, fly over, to merge or just to oppose. Zeitkratzers amplified instruments, played with extended techniques as developed by the group and its outstanding musicians over more than a decade and Hainos incredible richness in voice timbres and noises complement each other perfectly. Its one of the closest and most natural cooperations Zeitkratzer ever had. Wild and beautiful. Shouting, scratching, screaming, piping, chattering, crying, rumbling, oscillating, roaring, clashing, juttering, tinkling, singing, ... and at the end, its hilarious, powerful music, pure noise and pure melody. As the Chicago Reader noted: "The supernova finally occurs!" and The Wire agreed: "A real highlight, with Zeitkratzer enfolding Keiji Haino in its grasp like some tentacular kraken of the deep. Haino effectively becomes another member of the group." Rock-a-Rolla cheered: "Forceful and utterly compelling!" Nothing left to say than: listen! Zeitkratzer is directed by Reinhold Friedl: Frank Gratkowski (clarinets); Hild Sofie Tafjord (French horn); Hilary Jeffery (trombone); Reinhold Friedl (piano); Marc Weiser (acoustic noises); Maurice de Martin (percussion); Burkhard Schlothauer (violin); Anton Lukoszevieze (violoncello); + Keiji Haino (voice); Recorded live at Jahrhunderthalle Bochum, Ruhrtriennale. Recorded & mixed by Martin Wurmnest . Mastered by Rashad Becker." - Karlrecords.

Title: A Song for Echo
Format: LP
Label: Kathexis
Country: USA
Price: $28.00
"According to ancient mythology, the woodland nymph Echo was fascinated by the handsome Narcissus, and wished to lure him into marriage. Unable to say anything on her own, her voice could only repeat the last words said, and this act was not enough for the arrogant Narcissus. Heartbroken, Echo fled deep into the forest, her body turning to mountain stone. Her soul is often considered to be the faint reverberation of the wind, still calling out for her lost love. A Song for Echos central character embarks on a spiritual journey through earth and water, attempting to discover herself and her relationship to the elements before nightfall. Ricardo Donosos score really heightens the interplay between the attraction and repulsion of the doomed lovers and makes for an all-consuming, disorienting immersion. Rhythmic cadences collapse in on themselves for moments of striking isolation. Subtle melodic flourishes and field recordings are doused in digital textures and dark ominous drones. At once light and playful, the musical suite moves through time slowly, cautiously and in a downward trajectory. Its fitting that the inaugural release on Kathexis mark such a transitional stage in Donosos discography. From the geometric, inspired post-rave moments of his Digitalis trilogy to the oppressive depths of the Scuba Death project, A Song for Echo shows the composer blurring the lines between what was once compartmentalized and segregated into something clearly becoming a unified whole. An essential piece of the Donoso puzzle and a small glimpse into whats on the horizon. Limited to 300 copies." - Kathexis.

Title: Singulacra
Format: LP
Label: Kathexis
Country: USA
Price: $24.00
"Bristol, England-based sound artist and producer Sophia Loizou presents Singulacra, the follow-up to her 2014 debut, Chrysalis, which is itself a staggering exploration of the conflict between nature and technology and the space between natural and synthetic sounds. With Singulacra, Loizou builds on the framework of Chrysalis for her most ambitious offering to date. Ghostly remnants of hardcore and early jungle percolate throughout while fragments of radio transmissions seep in and out through tape-based processes and spectral processing, leaving the listener in a hauntingly beautiful landscape filled with both solidity and disintegration. Bringing back the times of pirate radio, almost like lost transmissions from beyond the grave, this work provides a sense of intimacy and familiarity during the contemporary full-speed acceleration toward unknown futures. Exploring its audiences anxieties surrounding technological utopias while retaining an emphasis on nurturing human value when facing inhuman forces, Singulacra engages with the potential loss of human essence amid technological progress toward artificial intelligence. Limited edition of 300. Initial copies on transparent vinyl. Includes download code." - Kathexis.

Title: Split
Format: Cass
Label: Körper/Leib
Country: Italy
Price: $9.00
Edition of 100. “This is the first Körper/Leib issue: a split between Aun and Rainbow Island. Both these bands are involved in perpetuating different tropes of the polyvalent term psychedelia. The latter are a central italian unit that ranges from sultriness and mental dispersion, theyre acid and groovy, in a non-danceable - but yet physic - mean. Their imaginary shifts from videoludic drugapulco to incorporeal rendition of kosmos. The first are a canadian duo with a solid background in obscure and moody music, that find here their accordance between the psychedelic-messianic moments and their dark and dense other side: a two faced monster trapped in five pieces. The first track called "Segway Death" features italian occultist Mai Mai Mai. Aun gear list features: Professional Trainer Organ and YRG Guitar. Rainbow Island gear list features: MFB Synth Lite 2, DSI MoPho, Alesis Micron, Sound Lab Mini-Synth Mark I, Drums, Pure Data, Korg Electribe, ZoomH2N.” - Körper/Leib.

Title: Dreams of Falling
Format: Cass
Label: Körper/Leib
Country: Italy
Price: $9.00
"This is the repress of “Dreams of Falling”, the first album by musician and poet Sandra Bell, from New Zealand." - Körper/Leib.
"The record was born after a discussion with Peter Jefferies in Dunedin, about rerecording the song “Industrial Night“.I had known Peter vaguely from Auckland but never worked with him. “Industrial Night” was on my first vinyl release the EP “Blackbirds” which I had recorded in Auckland, and I wanted to reinterpret it. For the next year, from the end of 1990 until the end of 1991, we also recorded a back log of my other songs on and off at our home in Maitland St, and also Fish St and Studio 13. Peter was a master of the Teac 4 track, and of musical arrangement. I was able to experiment and realise the potential of each song with his advanced skills. It seems miraculous looking back now that it was all done on 4 tracks, bouncing down at times and using two 4 tracks at one time for other tracks. I remember a cut in a song meant an actual cut of the tape, which Peter did with precision and skill. The wonderful musicians who played on the album took the songs from mundane to sublime- David Mitchells lead break on Industrial Night was exhilarating and exciting, Kathy Bull added clever bass lines, Peters industrial drumming was a constant force, Alastair Galbraiths violin, Bruce Bluchers guitar, and the unmistakable distorted keyboards of Peter Gutteridge all added intrinsically to the final sound . Actually Peter Gutteridge recently said to me about Subway Nihilism” I should have got a co- writing credit for that song” as it was created in a session at Maitland St, when I put a poem to his riff, so he was right about that. A couple of the songs where influenced by a spell living alone in the Queensland rain forest- Manai is influenced by aboriginal music and legend, as was Waitawhile, which is the name of a spikey rainforest plant. The Country girls is a song for my sister Jean, about the loss of our mother when we were young. Floating aground was written about Aramoana- Peter and I had been inside for a few days totally absorbed in recording-I was speaking to my elderly neighbour who told me 13 people had been killed at Aramoana, I thought she was completely mad, but so sadly it was true. We were at Aramoana for a memorial service, and walking along the beach there were flowers in the water, which reminded me of St Marie De La Mere in the Sth of France, where the gypsys take an effigy of St Marie into the sea each year. Dreams of Falling was picked up by Xpressway who had released Peters album, then by Turbulence in Belgium, and opened up a new world for me which led on to another 3 albums, tours of America and Europe." - Sandra Bell.

Title: Attic Demonstration
Format: CD
Label: Kebrutney
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Kenneth Higney was a struggling singer-songwriter when he cut Attic Demonstration in 1976, a demo record of such massive outsider vision that it dropped straight into the void, as well as the deep pockets of a band of committed record collectors. Initially intended as a calling card to help him get his songs covered by other artists, Higney soon branched out into selling the disc as an actual album, placing low key ads in a couple of NY papers and sending out a bunch of review copies. Only Trouser Press took the bait, saluting Attic Demonstrations "cross between Lou Reed and Neil Young without the aid of melody." Now officially available for the first time, Attic Demonstration is one of the most endearing and intensely human real people discs to turn up for a while, boasting Modern Lovers-styled road ballads sung with a Jagger-esque snear and propelled on pegleg rhythms that would do The Shaggs proud, through meandering tonal wastelands where Higneys eye-wateringly unarmoured vocals are supported by minimal chord patterns that progress according to the position of the stars. Best of all is the addition of both sides of Higneys funk/punk tribute single, where he namechecks contemporaries like The Dead Boys and Johnny Thunders and rhymes "dirty downtown bar" with "the sissy music of John Denver". Almost too good to be true." - David Keenan; The Wire. "New Jersey open wounds real person basement psych damage strums with buzzfuzz bursts. mix of Spencian floaters and warped rhythm ravers. At times sounds like 1/2 Japanese doing Cale-era Modern Lovers outtakes. way lost no-fi monsterdom..." - Ron Moore. Official CD reissue of this 1976 classic. Includes tracks from his 1980 7" release.

Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Kelippah
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"In an era where compositional abstract music has been co-opted by studious arrangers obsessed with process, where forbearers have been kidnapped by pop stars, and where the noiseniks have all turned to techno beats, this split lp by Decimus (Pat Murano) and Hobo Sonn (Ian Murphy) presents a triumphant return to the frayed and dangerous inner world of outsider sound exploration and reproduction. Both artists have crafted individual soundscapes that reek of the cinematic, while eschewing both pastiche and canonized musical reference points to create a unique inverted cosmos. Presented over two sides of vinyl each suite of music almost perfectly mirrors the other. Where Deciumus uses synthetic devices to create warped, nightmarish representations of organic, everyday sounds (creaky floorboards, a heartbeat, rats squeaking, camera shutters clicking, a taunting feral animal cry), Hobo Sonn places field recordings of actual sounds (foot falls, birds, insects, automobiles) in a dark and drifting world that feels very much like a waking bad dream. If the Decimus side feels like a descent into the end of ones days, then perhaps Hobo Sonns side is the reality we face once we cross over. Or perhaps it is the other way around. There is not a payoff to be found within these vibrating grooves, instead you are invited from the opening seconds of each side to be a part of a parallel world, one that perhaps lives right around the next darkened corner, or at the periphery of your eyesight. Like real life, the peaks happen subtly, when you are not paying attention, and leave you in a different place than you were when you started.

Artist: MALKUTH
Title: Hathir Sakta
Format: LP
Label: Kelippah
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Simply put, Malkuth are a Leviathan; rising from the West, to lay waste to the Eastern lands—fierce and spiteful, having been awakened from centuries of contemplative slumber. In comparison to their two full-lengths on Hospital Productions, Hathir Sakta (and its accompanying disc on Prison Tatt Records, Tamahprabha, the set originally intended as one double LP) finds Malkuth in relative or even greater form, this material having been simmered to perfection, its ferocity seasoned to epic proportion—and as always, guitar-guitar-drums—no bass to tether it, "define" it or in any way hem it in. Szwed and Muranos guitars tentacle one another—dozens of possessing riffs, split in all the right places by ice shards of trebly melody—angular, baroque and dissonant, as if Morton Feldman were somehow meeting black metal halfway; his studied, contemplative maturity juiced up on a gift-cask of USBM-tinged Kaddish wine and energy drinks, and Mr. Muranos experimental projects (Decimus, K-Salvatore, Key of Shame et al.), having evolved similarly during the interval, inform these Malkuth tracks in the most apropos and satisfying of ways. Matt Heyners roiling drum kit ties it all up in twine, complementing Muranos growl with snare hits and tom workouts like small-arms fire.  

Malkuth are of a rare breed within the pantheon of black metal, in that their material is both energizing (similar to the way of all bands who chose to ride the Darkthrone / Abruptum artery from the primordial Scandinavian explosion) and meditative / brooding, offering "head" and "hard" in equivalent doses. After spending many hours of deep listening to their material, as well as hosting them on my WFMU radio program during the bridge between their Hospital releases and these newer ones, I can say with surety that this LP and its companion are indeed Malkuths finest hour, such that "well worth the wait" becomes a descriptive understatement.   Hathir Sakta requires your immersion, for the listeners full envelopment to be achieved; that said, youll undoubtedly pick up on the incredible energy of these recordings even if only half-listening, and when youre ready, the awe-inspiring, novelistic quality of Hathir Sakta will reveal itself fully and enrapture the listener in its cavernous terror and ecstasy." - Wm. M. Berger, host, WFMUs My Castle of Quiet; proprietor, Prison Tatt Records. 200 copies pressed.

"Previously, a boy dreams the dreams of many other boys. He meets three other boys and they dream together. Sadly, one of his co-dreamers dreams become nightmare. In an effort to avoid seeing their own dreams relegated back to sleeping, our hero and his fair dreaming compatriots leave their troubled friend to face his nightmares on his own. His nightcap is quickly filled and the boys march forward, eventually seeing all of their dreams made manifest. In this installment our boy has become a man too accustomed to living his boy dreams. When he places his head upon his pillow these days there is nothing, as if there is nothing left to dream of. Perhaps his conspirators sense this? They dream apart now and our heros empty nights only serve to marginalize him from these other boys. Our man must be gifted with powers beyond the ordinary because, much as his boy dreams had become real, so too his man dreams of emptiness soon become his waking life. Unlike his lost troubled co-dreamer from years past, his nightmares are far too mundane for anyone to care about. He dies this way. Special thanks to Charlie Gilmour, millionaire.

Title: YTIU
Format: LP
Label: Kelippah
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"No Neck Blues Band are the last of their kind, children of a New York City that no longer exists. Theyve operated in the shadows of Gothams music scene for almost 20 years as likely to perform in art galleries as loft spaces. No Neck Blues Band are revolutionaries, carrying on the search for freedom through improvisation that began after Coltrane liberated jazz. But No Neck Blues Band dont play jazz per se, or any other known idiom for that matter. Their sound has its precedents most notably the genre-blurring, early-70s work of Englands Third Ear Band and German groups Exmagma and recent co-conspirators Embryo. No Neck Blues Band further those explorers investigations of non-Western sounds by infusing them with psychedelic-rock dynamics, the tenets of minimalism and Fluxus-inspired performance.
Each No Neck Blues Band record is a spontaneously composed ritual containing a variety of hard-to-pronounce acoustic instruments, unmoored percussion, guitars, keyboards and various electronics, at once familiar and exotic. While a few members have come and gone, No Neck Blues Band is Keith Connolly, Michiko, Jason Meagher, Pat Murano, David Nuss and David Shuford. No Neck Blues Band activity has been sparse in recent years since their celebrated rehearsal/performance space in Harlem, The Hint House, fell victim to gentrification.
Recorded in 2009 at Faust Studios in Germany, YTIU is the avant-gangs latest offering and finds them in one of their more accessible moods. Only during the second half of Side As Platinum Willows does the band indulge its tendency for atonality. YTIUs second side fittingly dedicated to departed Pink Floyd member Richard Wright is a keyboard-dominated stunner that is more Saucerful of Secrets than The Wall. Mixed by Murano and released in an edition of 300 copies (vinyl, naturally) on his own label, Kelippah, YTIU is another exceptional document by one of the most vital bands New York City has ever birthed. Stream it below, and head here to see if there are any copies left."- Jeff Conklin, East Village Radio. Hand painted with iodine and Aqua-Net. Highly recommended!!

"Safiyya is Brad Rose (Charlatan/The North Sea) and Pat Murano (NNCK/Decimus). Born of a correspondence between two fellows entrenched in parallel explorations of the unknowable and imagined, theres a mystery to the source of the sounds contained in these grooves; a mystery that reaches the top of chain, as the players involved have never met, did not discuss individual process, nor the direction of their collaborative endeavors. There is not even a record of the machines used to create this shadowy sci-fi landscape. What the listener is presented with is music that reverberates like synthetic sound made into organic instruments imitating synthetic sound. It is a fantasy world that feels a little bit too much like a version of reality with dark bags under its eyes and strange stains on its clothing. Its the music you hear after the anesthesia drip gets turned on, right before you succumb to that infernal waking sleep. Theres a clarity to the recording, a depth of field that seems normal, but with a bit more scrutiny, is unsettling and disorienting. Theres a narrative, almost cinematic or like a soundtrack to an Evanson story, but like any pinnacle of modern horror, once you catch ahold of that thread, your brain begs you to let go. The music is devoid of terroir, a fantastic blend of east and west, modern and classical, lending once again to the creeping sensation that the rabbit hole is way up there, far, far from where youve landed." - Jason Meagher.

Title: Elan / Le Malade Roi
Format: 7"
Label: Kernkrach
Country: Germany
Price: $13.00
"The translucent red record opens with "Le Malade Roi." As soon as the needle touches this 7" sublime synthlines are offered from the speakers. Vocals are contributed by Xavier Paradis, vocals that blend seamlessly with the crisp beats and a solid tempo to produce a track that would warm any club floor. "Le Malade Roi" is a piece that captures the addictive analog sound of quality New Wave, blending some heartbreak lyrics with some pure electro sound. Synthesizers flow onto the flipside with "Elan." A clean and warm drumulator style backing props up some amazing analogue work before vocal slide in. Once more, that addictive and magnetic aspect is there as choice melodies are combined with deep lyrics. The track comes to a close with a fantastic, energy filled synthesizer solo; bringing this lovely New Wave snippet to a close. There can be only one complaint with Arnaud Lazlauds release, it is too short. Two tracks is a tease. These pieces are what New Wave was, and what it can still be; music that calls the listener back again and again. Two tracks are not enough, and more is needed. But, this is hardly an issue to gripe about. This is the height of recommendation and endorsement.... Hardy congratulations to artist and label are deserved, but such quality must be maintained and this can be easier said than done." - Igloo Magazine. Limited edition in "taped bandage" cover.

Title: This Planet Is Doomed: The Science Fiction Poetry of Sun Ra
Format: Book
Label: Kicks
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"This Planet Is Doomed, which collects the science-fiction poetry of Sun Ra, exploded into the stratosphere on 7/7/11, an auspicious day for numerologists and doomsday enthusiasts alike. 7/7 coincides historically with the detonation of 20 kiloton Little Feller II, the first of the last four above ground nuclear warhead tests conducted in the US. The date will also evidence interstellar overdrive when Saturn, Pluto, Uranus and Venus form an intense and rare alignment known as the Cardinal Grand Cross. This Planet Is Doomed serves up a traumatic torrent of future shock--deeply personal and critical commentary and unsettling advice to the people of Earth, who fail to acknowledge this planets role in the universe. Poet Amiri Barakas estimable foreword, together with science fiction historian Bhob Stewarts revealing introduction, set the stage for the heavy dose of the real and the unreal, which are delivered in the pages of This Planet Is Doomed. This book was collected from tape recordings and transcriptions culled from the Sun Ra Archives by director Michael Anderson, who worked with Norton Records to compile a total of six albums -- three collections of rare and unissued music recordings (on LP and CD) plus a trio (vinyl only) of unissued spoken word Sun Ra LPs. This Planet Is Doomed was expanded with the addition of several key lost poems which appear here for the first time." - Kicks.

No less an authority than legendary BBC host and producer John Peel received an advance copy of the single and played it twice that same night. He then requested that the band do a Sessions gig for him and the band was officially on its way. Relentless gigging with The Gang of Four, Echo and the Bunnymen, B52s, Specials, Teardrop Explodes, and U2 put the band on the map worldwide.

""Influenced by similarly all-female punk and post-punk acts like The Neo Boys and Kleenex, Grass Widow also note Roy Woods The Move and The Kinks as a major source of inspiration. This can all be heard on Past Time along with the three-part harmonies, complex arrangements and odd chord progressions. Grass Widow is also influenced by a legacy of women who have paved the way through their music and politics. Their collaborative songwriting process, the fact that they dont have a front person and that they all equally contribute to the work of the band speaks to this philosophy. In addition, they take the opportunity as an all female band to bring attention to the roles of spectacle and spectator in their scene and make a conscious effort to play shows where women are involved." -Kill Rock Stars

Price: $17.00
"The newest LP from Metz, Frances FEELING OF LOVE is a blues-wrangling nightmare, full of nods to THE JOHN SPENCER BLUES EXPLOSION, THE VELVET UNDERGROUND, and French glue-wavers CRASH NORMAL. This newest full-length studio album is an awesome follow up to their first LP and the one-sided 12-inch  from last few years. Songs include amazing slide guitar riffs over drum machines, synths and tight rhythm section. This album is a complete reminder of why we have such a fondness for their first few releases and 7-inches; their tracks are driving grooves with a wild blues edge, all followed up with that magical French synthesis that delivers a "cant miss" experience. Awesome cover art, printed sleeves and limited to our usual 500 copies on black vinyl." - Kill Shaman.

"Mississippis one-man band Flight is back with his second ever release, a self-titled 10? EP on Kill Shaman. A perfect medley of 70s glam, 80s punk and 60s psych, Flight applies a fist-pumping lo-fi pop sensibility that is over-distorted, punchy, and punk as fuck. Contains four distinct tracks that completely distinct and kills the inner ear. With the volume turned up to the max, this blown-out and distorted piece of wax will be sure to please any fans of Live Fast Die, Cheap Time, Jesus and Mary Chain and anything else that shreds while maintaining a deeply seeded sense of pop-punk. Think of it as the perfect medium for early 90s fuzz-gaze and 70s glam punk." - Kill Shaman.

Rodent Plague songs are composed from guitars, synths, drum machines and other reandom sounds to build an eerie kind of angular surf sound. Imagine if Brian Wilson was raised in the poltergeist house and recorded an album.

Latest on Bryan Ramirez (Universal Indians, Ex-Cocaine, etc) Montana-based Killertree label. Silkscreened edition of 300. "Mordecai is a band made of vintage parts hammered together in a dilapidated garage by youthful mad scientists. Its a familiar sound if you know the Stooges, or if you know Poison 13s Tim Kerr and his numerous Texas garage rock reincarnations: grungy, almost falling apart, full of cool sneering vocals. Dont mistake Mordecai for indie hipster. This is real underground. Its how you feel when you thought life was all about the Stones and then you heard the Cramps—that kind of shiver up the spine. The Butte bands new album from local Killer Tree Records boasts nine songs with simple names like "Light," "Iodine," and "Horse" plus the occasional two-letter title, as in "Blow Happy." Its the kind of thing you can do the twist to, but more sinsister. Brothers Holt and Elijah Bodish dont hold back from messiness. Especially on "Seatbelt," where the screech of fingers across frets and cacaphonous solos make it a hungry, honest collection best heard on vinyl since it was recorded in an 80-year-old YMCA in Butte."

"1993 - we got our cherries busted with youth noise and desperate freedom. It was a call for musical separation from everything that plugged in and we fuckin got it. We (Jeff Dunn, John Olson & Bryan Ramirez) met many evenings per week for over a year solid, most likely cranked around 200 sessions all recorded on 90 minute tapes - roughly 9000 minutes - all ground into dust, gone. Shit was molded in the walls of 1610 Kzoo St. Lansing, MI, or ransacked by noise bums, or recorded over. But, there was one that got away from the doomhole - a second generation cassette. The recording was at 6am before Ramirez was to catch a flight to Florida - road cone gravity bongs sent this fucker into sleepy-eyed wee-mugs that filed along towards school - periodically glancing at the house to hear this horrendous alien arguement thundering from sax/drums/guitar/keys all aligned in the rocket room. The recording is shattering. Minced analog skreedom recklessly curing informal ills and breaking windows from pure soundwave pressure. Free sound from the early years all innocent-like. Pure and demented is pure demented freedom. Screened covers - killer liners/history lesson by John Olson - limited run." -Killertree.

"Not much to remember about 1993 �?? other than discovering Dead C and several seasons of meeting up with Jeff Dunn and John Olson at 1610 Kalamazoo St in Lansing MI �?? in the rocket room (upstairs, middle room) and the attempt to fill every floating atom with solid sound. We firstly prepared with weed �?? from the pipe to the 2 liter gravity bong to the milk jug gravity bong then graduating to the road cone gravity bong. Jeff would play guitar, Olson would play drums, sax, or perhaps guitar, Ramirez usually played guitar but on this session, keyboards and tapes. It would always be a solid blowout, no escape from the sound with everything always colliding and creating languages, stories or whatever. It was pointless to play live (we did once �?? in a pitch black basement days after Cobain tapped out, with only one person in attendance who was tripping hard). It was a good self-indulgence figuring that no one would get it or give a shit so Plants was a Gents Club for weirdos and destructos. This particular splot happened on 12/15/93 at around 6am in the morning (I had a morning flight to catch). The session creeped out of the shingles and into the ears of passerby schoolchildren who looked at the house as if it were levitating. This session was messed up and bent as usual, full on vintage scree manipulation of our instruments the only unordinary thing was that it was in daylight. No songs, just attempting fill every corner and crack with sonic abuse and then when the session ends �?? we just stare at each other with creeper grins like we just built an orb and sent it out in to space in hopes of other life forces intercepting it instead of whatever NASA sends into space to reach out to other worlds. Our orb holds truer �?? reflecting chaos in our world. Plants reflects some messed up shit, but it�??s good shit.

Green light was  at the crossroads for stacks and stacks of tapes to be pillaged throughout last  Springtime end and Summer eves until four solid cuts were culled for an LP  release.  And this is the shit - the first side ranges from over the  fucking top heavy driving High Rise wah battle to some serious reps on Olsons  traps accompanying minimal trashed-out skronk chords pushing on the VU meter to  pure slimy menacing blues skuzz that dissipates into a fine, loose rubbery mess  (like every song does, and yeah, these are actual songs) with the sound is so  thick that the grooves are white.  Side Two holds two songs meshed together  with fine stewardship ala GDs Ithaca 77 Scarlet/Fire blowout for a solid  side-long mother of all battalion guitar ventures. Nudging Driver UFO & The  Holy Sound of the American Pipe in the UI unisound tradition in a 16 minute rant  that makes this cut a pinnacle in the annals of low-brow grong for the UI books  - 3 or 4 minutes of semi-coherency, the rest a blaze of solid head-fuckery, a  good one to get lost in.  Our version of hard, loose psych to match head on  all the fancy collector jargon hustled for big bills (only to receive some  waysted bar band hashing out piss bloooz).  Call it pride but it needed to  be solid and realer than real.  The end result coincides to a cruddy mix  tape (levels are screwed considering each song is from a different session) and  acclimates to the shitiest of stereos.  These four cuts are from 94-95,  two live cuts, two prax sessions, Olson kills the drums, Ramirez hashes the  riffs, the wah & mumblings.  And there was another guitar lazily played  by someone from somewhere doing something when she wasnt doing her  homework.  Limited to 300 copies on vinyl - the demon is finally at  rest." - Killertree.

Immediately after recording the band haphazardly drops the cassette into a puddle. What resulted is an incredible stamp of unique lo ­fi punk. A true original. A true piece of art.

Format: Double LP

Price: $24.00
"Touki Ba Banjul is a compilation of music from the Gambian psych sensation Guelewar, who played a major part in the development of the Afro Manding sound. From 1979-1982 the band released four albums, featuring some of Gambias best funk tunes. This official, first-time-ever reissue features the highlights of their career. Before Guelewar, Laaye NGorn, the lead singer of the band, was already one of Gambias most celebrated artists. He was the central figure in The Supreme Eagles, with whom he played as the main act in one of Gambias successful clubs, The Bambo No. 1 Night Club. In return for the success, the club manager offered them instruments, after which they renamed their band Super Alligators. Due to the mixture of Western influences such as soul and funk, with traditional and regional rhythms like boogaraboo and sawrouba, Super Alligators had a unique sound. The result of this blend is known as the psychedelic sound of Gambia (Senegal). In 1973 the Super Alligators decided to rename the group Guelewar, which is Wolof for "noble warrior." After a turbulent couple of years with many musicians joining and leaving the band, Laaye managed to reform the band in order to record their first album in 1977. Over the course of the following five years, Guelewar released a total of four albums, which are all filled with deep psychedelic funk gems. Due to the limited pressings, these albums are very much sought-after by collectors. Kindred Spirits compiles the highlights of these albums, which are presented on this double LP. Touki Ba Banjul is not only a must-have for collectors of African music, but for music lovers worldwide." -Kindred Spirits.

"One of Colombias most significant Afro-psychedelic records, capturing the countrys sound system subculture of that time. Killer. In the 1970s, people on the Caribbean coast of Colombia became captivated by a host of African rhythms. Records brought in by merchant sailors from Africa became the new craze, with local sound systems becoming the main driving force behind the popularity of African music in the region. Record labels, seeing an opportunity to capitalize on this new phenomenon, began hiring local bands and creating new line-ups to cover and re-adapt these African styles into Spanish. Discos Machuca became one of the pioneering record labels to mix local Colombian rhythms with these new African styles. In his quest to create a record that would capture and embody the whole sound system subculture of the time, Rafael Machuca created the band Myrian Makenwa. The line-up of the band was shrouded in mystery, and in 1981, at the Discos Machuca recording studio in Barranquilla, Rafael Machuca began producing what would arguably become one of the most pulsating and innovative Afro Colombian records ever made on Colombias Caribbean coast. He gave the musicians total creative freedom, allowing them to experiment with new sounds, mixing Afro Caribbean and Latin rhythms with elements of Afrobeat, highlife, and soukus. The result was a blistering set of raw, hypnotic grooves -- a sonic voyage, with songs like "Lady Makenwa" and "Amampondo" completely personifying the new hybrid sound Machuca was searching for." -Kindred Spirits.

About this era Helios recently wrote: "We were into Iggy and the Stooges, and punk shows started happening at the Mabuhay Gardens in 1976 which was right there in North Beach too, at the end of the Broadway strip. It was the most fun era of my life. The punk scene had an incredible energy and fire. Then the Sex Pistols came out with Never Mind the Bullocks in 1977 and we released Chromes second album Alien Soundtracks the same year and the whole punk thing exploded. Next we released Half Machine Lip Moves in 1979 and it and Alien Soundtracks took over in the punk world. Our record covers filled the windows of record stores and I was in awe. We werent really a traditional punk band. Nobody else sounded like us. We were more of a psychedelic band, but a punk version of psychedelia, acid-punk. But I was influenced by the punk scene, because the music was experimental and free, but still hard and solid. punks guitar was fucked up and without rules. So it was a great scene to keep developing my sound and my approach to guitar. Damon and I were both into expanding the possibilities. We fed off of each other in our experimentation and as we created wed both like the same things. There was this thing that Damon and I called the Chill Factor where if its really good you get goose bumps, and we used to get the Chill Factor at the same time. We shared concepts about how to approach music and we pushed the limits and that is how I guess we became known as proto-industrial, because we expanded the possibilities of what music at the time could sound like and people were influenced from there. Damons and my meeting had become a catalyst for the birth of a whole new sound."" - King of Spades.

Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Klang
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"Raw and rocking collaboration between JACK ROSE and THE BLACK TWIG PICKERS with some of the most swinging, hard-hitting string music waxed in many a decade. Roses solo playing has always had a tough edge, with his prodigious technique often employed in the service of dropping right-hand bombs-his use of a thumbpick originates from his years of duets with Twig MIKE GANGLOFF, struggling to make his guitar heard over Gangloffs crashing banjo. The front line of Rose and Gangloffs strings are joined by ISAK HOWELLs no-nonsense guitar and harmonica and NATE BOWLES variety of expert percussion. The four players lock together with a sure-footedness honed by frequent touring and a singularity of intent to rock. Gangloff takes the vocals, howling out standards like "Little Sadie" firmly in the old-time tradition-without reserve. A few of the tracks here are updates of Rose & family classics, with the group turning the stately "Kensington Blues" upbeat and an issuing an assured take on "Bright Sunny South," first recorded by PELT (with Rose and Gangloff) back in 2001 on their gonzo classic double Ayahuasca." - Klang.

"Chakk existed between 1981 and 1987. Their first single, Out Of The Flesh, was recorded with Richard H. Kirk at Cabaret Voltaires Western Works studio and mixed and engineered by Alan Cross, a member of the band who had studio training. Chakks original sound was centred around Cross four track tape machine, some home built echo and effects boxes and a small mixing desk. They had always believed that the most important instrument a band could use was the studio itself. The first album by Sheffield electro funk group Chakk was originally released as a cassette by the band themselves in 1982. Personnel for this album: Mark Tattersall (also in Element/Transelement, drummer for Cabaret Voltaire on various recordings), Mark Brydon (also in Moloko, Hula), Sim Lister (also in Heights of Abraham), Alan Cross (DJ Alan X). This early recording, unheard by most people until today, presents a much jazzier and funkier Chakk than later Fon releases. It could be compared to early Clock DVA. Theres also a lot of Cabaret Voltaire here, some Hula, also some Industrial music. The album is one wild ride of styles and sounds. Its a fantastic document of its time, and at the same time a timeless and brilliant piece of music. Carefully remastered for this first digital release." - Klanggalerie.

"Eric Random is a multi-instrumentalist from Manchester. He formed The Tiller Boys with Pete Shelley in the late 70s, released a solo album in 1980 and then fronted the group The Bedlamites. At that time, a lot of world music influences appeared in Erics music. The group was also Nicos band during her last years, and Random the bandleader. Ties were formed with the Sheffield music scene, and soon Cabaret Voltaire worked with Eric, producing the seminal album Time-Splice. In the 1990s Eric reformed another side project of his, The Free Agents. A whole album was recorded, but only two tracks ever saw the light of day. After a longer hiatus Eric returned to the scene with his solo album Man Dog in 2014 and started playing live again. Klanggalerie are now proud to present the all-new album Words Made Flesh. It is dancier than Man Dog, and the world music traces have disappeared. On one song, Random has teamed up with Stephen Mallinder of Cabaret Voltaire and more recently Wrangler.

He studied violin and piano, sound engineering, composition and guitar.

He played in the free Jazz group Synthesis and also, during 1974, in Kraftwerk (he played guitar and violin on their classic Autobahn LP).

Röder also developed an interest in setting his own home studio to produce his own solo recordings, which have been collected and releases in two privately pressed LPs, Elektronische Kompositionen and Kompositionen 1981-1983, plus a further one, Kristallisationen, on the Planam label." - Wah Wah.

The quartets first release, New Directions In Modern Music, released on Alis own Survival Records in 1973, exploded onto the free jazz scene, influencing the likes of Don Cherry, Albert Ayler and Archie Shepp (as well as many outside the jazz idiom), becoming a kind of manifesto for avant-garde music of the period. From this point, until his death in 2009, Ali was at the heart of the New York experimental music scene, collaborating in the mid-nineties on a project called Purple Trap, with Japanese guitarist Keiji Haino and Bill Laswell." - Klimt.

This LP was originally released in 1983 on the small British label Illuminated Records (home to Sex Gang Children, Throbbing Gristle, etc.), with an album sleeve of original artwork that was soon inexplicably replaced by a mediocre band photo on all subsequent reissues. Menmachines was also the second of four all-new studio albums made by this UK-based incarnation of Amon Düül. The new Amon Düül featured John Weinzierl on guitar, ex-Hawkwind bassist Dave Anderson (both from Amon Duul II), ex-Van Der Graaf Generator Guy Evans on drums, and Julie Waring on vocals. For this LP the band moved away from the more free-form freakout of their earlier days towards a sound that was far more structured and derivative, with definite new wave/post-punk leanings." -Klimt.

"One of the great lost albums of British psychedelia, original copies of Arzachels 1969 self-titled debut fetch huge sums on the collectors market and it is not difficult to understand why. Originally released in 1969 on the small Evolution label, this album quite simply contains some of the best psych to ever come out of the UK. However, like so many other great albums of the era, it soon dropped entirely from the radar due to bad promotion. In fact, it may not have ever been rediscovered at all if guitarist Steve Hillage and keyboardist Dave Stewart had not gone on to be so well known. Hillage would soon become famous for his work in Gong, and Stewart would become a legend of British prog with Egg, Hatfield and the North, National Health, and his work with wife Barbara Gaskin in the 1980s.

Takeda spent the early 1960s soaking in the sounds of American blues, psych and British invasion rock bands, eventually forming his own band--the aptly named Blues Creation--in 1969. The band released three albums, including their now legendary Demon & Eleven Children; before Takeda took off for London in 1972. During this time he played on a number of sessions and made friends with many musicians, particularly the American hard rockers Mountain. When he finally returned to Japan the following year, he was ready to start a new band with himself on lead guitar and vocals. Now simply called Creation, the band released its self-titled LP in 1975, produced by the Flower Travellin Band producer Yuya Utchida and featuring a cover photo of a group of naked boys peeing.

Featuring songs not heard on either one of their LPs--1969s self-titled debut and 1970s Full Circle, both on Harvest--it is speculated that many of these songs would have appeared on their imminent third album had they not been suddenly dropped from their label (due to low sales and rapidly changing musical tastes). By 1972 Dez Allenby had left the band, leaving brothers Adrian & Martin Welham as the only remaining members, although Dave Panton (viola, sax) and Dave Stubbs (bass) were brought in for their live performances. By this time, particularly on tracks like Everyday Laugh, the Welham brothers were moving more into avant-rock territory and one can only speculate on where they could have gone from here.

"One of the great lost albums of Southern hard rock, Dead Man was the 1970 debut album of the Houston band, Josefus. Formed in 1969, Josefus soon garnered a huge live following, opening for acts like ZZ Top and Grand Funk Railroad. Unfortunately, their debut album, a heavy mix of Zeppelin-inspired acid rock with a Southern twist, was destined to obscurity, due largely to the fact that it was not released on a proper label (the band actually paid to have the album pressed and released on their own Hookah label). Just a few months prior to recording Dead Man, however, Josefus had actually recorded an albums worth of material for a producer in Phoenix, but the album was never released. This is what prompted the band to go back into the studio with their own money to record Dead Man. Dead Man was, therefore naturally, a mix of some of the songs from this earlier album (tentatively called: Get Off My Case) along with some new ones. Actually only three tracks from Get Off My Case did not make it onto Dead Man (Get Off My Case, A Social Song and Fealin Good), but these have been restored here as bonus tracks, so what you are actually getting is the complete track listing from the two albums." -Klimt

These sessions are also interesting because they give listeners a chance to hear Ra concentrating on primarily his own compositions--many of which (i.e. Rome At Twilight Along The Tiber) were inspired by his time spent in Italy--but in a more intimate Arkestra-less jazz setting. Fans will be clamouring to get their hands on this before it disappears again for another 30 years." -Klimt

"Extremely rare live in studio recordings of one of Englands most superlative female-fronted acid folk bands, recorded in 1971 and 1972 with DJ Bob Harris for BBC Radio 1. Formed in London in 1969, Trees have been likened to a more psychedelic Fairport Convention (with the amazing Celia Humphris taking the role of Sandy Denny). These are mostly tracks that never appeared on either one of their studio albums (The Garden Of Jane Delawney and On The Shore both released on CBS in 1970) making it an especially significant addition to their repertoire." -Klimt.

By the time this double album was recorded, the various band members had developed quite a pedigree having played with the likes of Archie Shepp, Paul Bley, Bob James, Mike Westbrook, Attila Zoller, Gong, Marion Brown, and others.

"Limited Edition of 350. Joakim Pirinen, mainly known for his comics and artwork, invites the listener to a sound odyssey with a couple of text-sound compositions together with Mikael Strömberg. The text material consists of short stories from Joakim Pirinens "Den svenska apan" [The Swedish Monkey] and some newly produced texts. Here you meet Gösta Jamberts, the man who left Sweden for Uganda to get his revenge on the Swedish state, the exhausted man standing in the rubble, trying to have a cosy home evening, the love struck Yssen behind the couch in the living room or the poor India- rubber tree that never dies etc. Is this music? Or Literature? Or something in- between? The Swedish text- sound compositions of the late 60s and 70s, with names like ÿke Hodell, Lars- Gunnar Bodin, Sten Hansson and ÿyvind Fahlström tried to expand the boundaries of poetry and music, text and sound. And so does the duo Pirinen/ Strömberg who follows closely in this tradition; the computer music of Strömberg mingles with the readings of Pirinen in patterns mainly determined by chance. The result is often as unexpected as it is humorous." - Kning Disk.

Price: $30.00
Lathe cut LP in edition of 120 copies.
"Meeks second second solo album, however, marks the first release for long-simmering Belgian label Knotwilg, lathe cut and wrapped in an acid trip cover cartoon by Indonesian artist Wedhar Riyadi. The music has all the hallmarks of the international instrumental weirdo underground - grating electronics, analogue bloops, and a total resignation to the gods of entropy. But the artists vision isnt bleak or brutish; "Extremophilic Folk" is a playful, outright fun listen.
"Meeks analogue set-up leaves no space for comfy quantisation, and the wonky keyboard and drum sequences that fail to interlace on the aptly titled opener "The Churn" could potentially realign into a groovier shape. But the nonsensical arrhythmic landscape is ultimately far more compelling, and Meek guides his set-up into uniquely strange moments of delightful disorder. Submerged major key synth melodies play vital roles throughout, weaving their way between small vacant spaces amid the mania on "Rails Toward The Sky" and "Weedflowers" then heading right into the foreground on the luminescent finale "Sunshine Over Helsinki". The latter could almost be an inverted mix of Mike Oldfields "Hergest Ridge", sped up a dozen rpm. "The Mysteries of Extremophilic Folk" illustrates Meeks joyous approach to music, being evocative of a child joyously colouring with no regard for keeping within the lines”- The Wire.

They seldom record or play live, yet when they do, a lot of attention is placed on the detail. In the studio this leads to perfectly shaped sonic constructions, and in a live concert a detailled balance between the various interests of the five players involved. The computer work of Jos Smolders and Roel Meelkop, the acoustic sound objects of Peter Duimelinks and Frans de Waard and the analogue electronics of Jacques van Bussel. A small selection of live recordings by THU20 has been made avialable before, such as a split LP with Merzbow, and live recordings from Nancy. Tilburg fits that particular line of THU20 work. Various recordings were made, from the P.A. aswell as by the individual players, which were slightly edited by THU20. Cover by Meeuw." -Korm Plastics

Title: U
Format: LP
Label: Kraak
Country: Belgium
Price: $27.00
"A true gem from the Portuguese underground. Sparse electronics blended with mystic vocalism -- think Ghédalia Tazartes or Diamanda Galás. Deep in the Portuguese underground, Calhau! constructs an absurd universe in which nightmares, rural Catholic mysticism, and surrealist spirituality play the lead role. Performance, movie, and music contribute to one melancholic and cruel whole. The music is deeply rooted in Roman mysticism, using the dark hand of alchemy to beseech the insane 21st century. The duo sounds like an updated version of Ghédalia Tazartes and Throbbing Gristle, blending tape collages and sparse electronics, not unlike the PAN back catalog. First and foremost, Calhau! are their own island, at the point where Old Europe disappears into the sea. Ú is their third album. The A-side builds upon five song particles, in which a grotesque voice floats over hard samples and rough electronics. The voice sings in Portuguese, or Latin, maybe French, or Mongolian throat singing. Vom Grills gurgles could be a reference. Side B is a re-release of the limited 2014 mini-CD A Corte DUrubu. Its one long droney piece, a result of a collaboration with a choir, recorded on the Portuguese coast. The composition is a loose interpretation of Gregorian pieces, like Stabat Mater and Veni Creator Spiritus, mixing choral works with gritty synths and sinister opera. With Ú, Calhau! establish their status as the most talented duo of the Portuguese avant-garde." - Kraak.

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

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

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

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

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

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

The first and last tracks are raw, pulsating improvisations built out of short, melodic motives that create a slowly changing arch of musical tension, while the centerpieces destroy the musical center and drop the listener into a cold, dystopian place, left alone and subject to powers beyond knowledge. Razen leave the listener no choice: immerse. Layout by Jeroen Wille, Mastered and cut by Rashad Becker. Includes download code for MP3, FLAC, and other formats. Edition of 320.” - Kraak.

Title: Yaqaza
Format: LP
Label: Kraak
Country: Belgium
Price: $24.00
"Sea Urchin is the Berlin-based brainchild of the Italian Francesco Cavaliere and the Egyptian-Austrian Leila Hassan. Being core members of the underground, they already released a 7" in 2012 on Das Andere Selbst and Solar Hype Dance in 2014 on Stenze Quo Musik. Cavaliere has also released Gancio Cielo (H 024LP, 2016) and Gancio Cielo 2 - Il Gruppo Respingi Comete (H 030LP, 2016) in 2016. Yaqaza is their long-awaited vinyl debut. The duo surprises with a multi-colored, mystic and intriguing collage of deconstructed pop hits, Italian music concrète, King Tubby-like dub and Algerian Rai. It is no coincidence that Yaqaza is Arabic for "daydream, reverie". The record is a virtual reality labyrinth in which the listener wanders around sleepwalking, constantly opening new doors and sliding between tableaux vivants. The poetic vocals by Hassan, alternately in Arabic and English, is an absent guide that takes the listener to ethereal micro-cosmoses. Dubby baselines, a cold drum computer, analog electronics and subtle tape collages come together in an intriguing and wondrous web of unravelling side plots. Yaqaza is a magic realist frame narrative. The side roles are performed by Sicilian salt miners, Bolaji Badejo (actor of the "alien" in Alien (1979)) or Cheba Nouria (an Algerian pop star)." - Kraak.

Title: The World Of Shells
Format: LP
Label: Kraak
Country: Belgium
Price: $26.00
"Typhonian Highlife is the new moniker of Spencer Clark. Clark is the ultimate shape-shifter, a trickster continuously mutating from a sci-fi hero, into a mystic guru or into a speculative visionary. As Typhonian Highlife, he assimilates juxtapositions of the natural world and fantastic technology to reanimate the manneristic tradition. His compositions envision possible futures and speculative pasts. They imagine a new vision upon mankind, as a mythical underwater creature who creates meaning through a prosaic mysticism. The World Of Shells works as an dream expedition that has overflowed itself into real time. Through continual material-world visualization, a technologically natured music unfolds as a series of movements outlining the existence of a mythological African creature. Travelling through Hollywood, Hanging Rock, Australia, and The Ear of Dionysus in Sicily, the creature was placed, and has enacted a music and art form that explores a sci-fi aquatic and wind-blown desert fusion to uncover the life and wanderings of this non-material being. Mastered by Christophe Albertijn. Artwork by Spencer Clark." - Kraak.

"This is a true solo album, entirely created and produced by a single person. That is certainly not unique, especially in the contemporary scene. But Bradford Coxs unusual talent is the ability to take a wide variety of seemingly incongruous sound elements, and seamlessly meld them into a cohesive pop narrative. A sunken 4/4 techno beat underpinning "Winter Vacation"? Perfect. Mbira loops running over the top of "Quarantined"? Just what it needed. An insistent, clipped drum roll carrying "River Card"? Masterful. And ultimately it is this innate ability to combine all these disparate elements into a singular whole that makes this album such an enjoyable, and unique listen." - Kranky.

Title: Original Darkness
Format: CD

Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Christina Carter has a gift. In a world where most people shy away from the truth, from honesty in emotion, Christina has the strength to address those feelings head on through her music. Within the songs of Original Darkness, she confronts loneliness, self doubt, inadequacy and desire. She bares these emotions in a sometimes tender, sometimes forceful, sometimes pleading voice, a voice in which you can hear her vulnerability, her trepidation. Christinas words, and the mournful sound of them, stirs a melancholy that is supported and framed by her gently plucked guitar notes, notes that echo the sadness in the world she sings of, as well as the words she sings. These 10 new songs are effective at painting pictures, exposing the underbelly of what we all really think but most will not say, of what we all really feel but push away. With the addition of gentle bells and occasional keyboards, Christina reminds us of what it means to be honestly human. The latest album from the longtime Charalambides mainstay follows her Electrice album from late 2006 on kranky as well as a split album with Pocahaunted from early in 2008." -Kranky

"Exile is the new Charalambides album. Five years in the making, it was recorded between 2006 and 2010 in various locations in New Hampshire, western Massachusetts and New York City, mixed at Black Dirt Studios, and mastered at Sand with Paul Gold. The group remains the core duo of Christina and Tom Carter, with contributions on one track by the string section of Helena Espvall and Margarida Garcia. Deeply imbued with the full historical spectrum of American folk and blues song form, Exile is a tapestry of suppliant invocations directed at the heart of the unseen spiritual forces surrounding us. Dense arrangements and thickly-overdubbed tracks sit side-by-side with material that ranks among the sparest and most skeletal the group has recorded, giving Exile the psychic scope of their classic Market Square album while building on the refinements of the more recent Likeness and A Vintage Burden releases." -Kranky.

"To say that the words unique and singular are over-used in describing music is to state the obvious. To apply these words to the sounds created by the various duo/trio configurations of the Texas group Charalambides over the last decade plus would be understatement. To be sure there are numerous antecedents to their music; to deny this of any artists work would be akin to saying that they are deaf. But they have surely broken new ground in the primitive/folk/mystic/improv/psych valley in which they toil. This new album is certainly not for the faint of heart. Five songs stretch and crawl over 75 minutes, with Christine Carter finding a new fearlessness in her voice that will draw comparisons to Patty Waters or the early work of Meredith Monk. Joy Shapes is the first studio album recorded by Charalambides in a long time." - Kranky. CD also available.

Title: Likeness
Format: CD
Label: Kranky
Country: USA
Price: $13.50
"Likeness is the newest release from the duo of Tom and Christina Carter. Recorded over a period of several weeks during the Spring of 2006, the album is a return to the spontaneous composition of previous Charalambides records such as Houston and Union. With the exception of The Good Life, which appeared in a primitive version on the Wholly Other CDR Home, all of the tracks on this release sprung forth after record was pressed, and were fleshed out via overdubs, editing and a malfunctioning space echo over the course of the next few months. Lyrical content largely derives from public domain, American popular song from the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, edited, rearranged and largely deconstructed by Christina into abstract protest songs for the century at hand. Musically, the album departs from the warm psych of A Vintage Burden in favor of the lush and layered vocal strata of Christinas later solo works, and a chillier, more abrasive guitar sound that favors The Velvets over The Byrds. Though containing much of the compositional concision that gave A Vintage Burden much of its appeal, the sound here just as frequently turns the corner into the abstract echoing spaces that characterize the more discordant sounds of Charalambides at the dawn of their Kranky residency." - Kranky.

Although no band is sui generis, anyone who heard the first recordings by Charalambides in 1992 could have been forgiven for thinking that of the duo. Our Bed Is Green was a recording that roped in folk, improvisation, psychedelia, blues and gospel into a crackling sound world unlike any other. Ranging across a 90 minute cassette and produced at home on four track, the music had only the means of production in common with the so-called lo-fi scene of the time.  On their debut, Charalambides achieved the distinct otherness they retain to this day." - Kranky.

Price: $24.00
Gatefold sleeve. "Physicalist is the third album from New York City synthesis trio Forma. Since their acclaimed self-titled debut in 2011, Forma have been perfecting a distinctive style of improvised kosmische and minimalism that blends swirling arpeggios, ambient soundscapes, and driving motorik beats. Physicalist is a sprawling, double LP journey featuring new member and multi-instrumentalist John Also Bennett. The first Forma album to include acoustic instrumentation, Physicalist owes more to American composers like Harold Budd or Terry Riley than Klaus Schulze and other Krautrock visionaries. The album was recorded during marathon sessions at Brooklyns Garys Electric studio, and is packaged in a gatefold jacket with original artwork by Robert Beatty and a liner notes essay by writer and critic Michael Barron. Physicalist was mastered by Bob Weston. Formed in 2010 by Mark Dwinell in Bushwick, Brooklyn, Forma released their first two full-length LPs on John Elliots influential Editions Mego imprint, Spectrum Spools. Physicalist is the first full-length statement from the new lineup, which also includes founding member and percussionist George Bennett. The double LP contains two distinct halves; the first consisting of rhythmic compositions derived from the trios formidable array of modular and vintage synthesizers, and the second breaking from the grid with ambient, free-flowing experiments on piano, flute and acoustic percussion. The album marks a departure from Cool Haptics, the groups techno-leaning 2014 EP on The Bunker New York. Physicalist takes its title from physicalism, the philosophical belief that all phenomena in the universe are created entirely from physical interactions. Using a synthesizer as its foundation, kosmische music turns algorithms into art by investigating infinite possibilities within a set of physical parameters. The electronic composer Laurie Spiegel once suggested that a looped algorithmic sequence could go on forever, and as long as humans were able to interact with it, it would never cease to interest us. This is the bedrock of improvisation, and it is from this vantage point that Forma have created Physicalist, an American kosmische music in which a boundless voyage gives way to a structured environment -- a programmed jazz with the grid as guidepost. Were not interested in providing an escapism for people, says member Mark Dwinell, We want to instead connect with people through a vigilantly monitored present. To us, that real moment, shed of any fancy, is just as divine." - Kranky.

Title: Sequitur
Format: LP
Label: Kranky
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"From Steve Hauschildt: This new album was recorded in both Vancouver and Cleveland. I used almost 20 different instruments, from every decade from the 60s to the present, most of them synthesizers, drum machines and effects. This gives the album a much wider palette than my last, Tragedy & Geometry, and it also gives it a more classic/new sound, yet it is still a logical follow up to that LP. I also used some techniques in the studio where I controlled older instruments with the computer and this opened up new ways for me to explore their potential as well as their innate idiosyncrasies. I was very interested in the artificiality of vocal or choir-like sounds that emulate a person or group singing, and how this has evolved with the advancement of musical technology over the years. I also sang myself, and used a vocoder, not to sound robotic, but to remove the connotations of gender. Those sounds are androgynous because they carry both masculine and feminine characteristics. I was inspired to carry this idea into music mainly because of the work of Camille Paglia and Donna Haraway. I feel that the album in a sense treads the imaginary boundary between nature and artifice. It is postmodern, but not necessarily a post-Freudian statement on cyborg theory or feminism. Rather it is a musically mimetic domain where these ideas freely collide and coalesce. Exactly one year on from his last album, Steve Hauschildt returns with his most commanding work to date. Dense and lush arrangements conjure a retro-futuristic soundscape for a time that never was, or one that may yet arrive." - Kranky.

“Strands is a song cycle that is about cosmogony and creation/destruction myths. The title alludes to the structural constitution of ropes as I wanted to approach the compositions so that they consisted of strands and fibers which form a unified whole. This was so the songs could have the appearance of being either taut or slack without being fundamentally locked to a grid. So the sounds/tones have a certain malleability to them and sound like theyre bending through time. Its also grittier and more distorted than my previous albums. I wanted to try and capture that moment in nature and society where life slowly reemerges through desolation, so it has a layer of optimism looming underneath. The music represents this by seemingly decaying at times but then reforms and morphs in a fluid way back to its original state. I was also inspired by the movement of rivers, particularly their transformative aspect and how theyre in a state of flux and change, in particular the Cuyahoga River in Cleveland where I live, which notoriously caught on fire thirteen times because of industrial pollution in the 1960s and before. I was very interested in the dichotomy of oil and water and the resulting, unnatural symptoms of human industry. Its a very personal record for me as it is a reflection of my hometown where I grew up and where it was mostly recorded.” - Steve Hauschildt. “Graceful compositions flow throughout Steve Hauschildts fourth release for Kranky following his Where All Is Fled full length from late summer 2015. The songs fluctuate from the serene calm of album opener “Horizon of Appearances,” to the pulsing hypnosis of “Ketracel,” and on to the searing grandeur of album closer “Die in Fascination,” throughout, Steve remains restrained and in complete control of his sound." - Kranky.

As a teen, Steve bypassed the typical young music fan obsessions over punk and hardcore musics, drawn instead towards mid-late 90s techno/electro-revivalism and finding himself alone in an electronic universe of his own choosing. Steve has always considered himself more of an artist than a musician, and sees his work both in group and solo settings as much a visual experience as it is an aural one. The title Tragedy & Geometry is an ambiguous but subtle reference to Melpomene (Muse of Tragedy) and Polyhymnia (Muse of Geometry), or more specifically the collision/overlap of what they invoke. The opening track is also a direct reference to "Polyhymnia, Muse of Eloquence", the painting by the French artist Charles Meynier on display at the Cleveland Museum of Art. The album is a treatise on the idea that technology is becoming more disposable as its becoming more accessible, and how this circumstance has a more evident/direct effect on the interpersonal, i.e. relations, with others in the so-called Age of Information. What results is a gorgeous, flowing, floating world of post-kosmische musik, Steve Hauschildts first widely available release, and his first major statement as a solo artist." -Kranky.

"Steve Hauschildts new album is his first since the late 2012 release of Sequitur. Although Where All Is Fled sonically harkens back to his earlier albums such as Rapt for Liquid Minister andTragedy & Geometry, it slowly becomes apparent that it is also a divergence from those recordings. Both the artwork and the music on this new work were heavily inspired by surrealist landscape paintings, early alchemical emblems, and recurring visions Steve had from dreams. The result is a pristine series of cascading melodies, fantastical terrains of layered lattices, and overlapping patterns of synthesizers superimposed with orchestral instrumentation. Hidden in the crevices of the album are processed crowd sounds, re-sampled text-to-speech synthesis, piano, and animal noises which reveal themselves after repeated listens and blur together notions of artificial and natural sound. While slowly unfurling, each sound is given its own place and space, never hurried, never cluttered. The album is a modern kosmische milepost, and the most accomplished statement of Steve Hauschildts vision yet." - Kranky.

Title: Ravedeath, 1972
Format: Double LP

Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Tim Heckers latest work approaches a form of secular musical transcendentalism from within the battered temple of spirituality. Recorded in a church in Reykjavik, Iceland and using a pipe organ as the primary sound source, this new piece is essentially a live recording. In reality, it exists in a nether world between captured live performance and meticulous studio work, melding the two approaches to sonic artifice as a unity. It is in parts a document of air circulating within a wooden room, and also a pagan work of physical resonance within a space once reserved for the hallowed breath of the divine. While the title of the piece Hatred of Music might be a clue, the album is also partly an attempt to confront a pervasive negativity surrounding music. Historical rituals of destroying pianos, mountains of pirated CDRs pushed by bulldozers in Eastern Europe, or the melancholy of the digital music era began as sideline motifs which quickly informed the work on this record. They also really didnt at all. Despite that the context is wide open in such a form of musical abstraction, the substance of these immersive compositions showcases Heckers continued mastery of organizing sound into a visceral near entity. It is an almost physical presence that the listener feels as much as hears. This work is a significant contribution to Heckers oeuvre, one which spans over ten years of musical production. Ravedeath is an enigmatic document of beauty and force. The album was recorded mostly over the period of one day in July of 2010. Iceland-based musician Ben Frost assisted with the engineering and performs on this recording." -Kranky

“2010 release. 180-gram vinyl. A jawdropping collection of crop circles etched in sonic candy-floss by New Zealands beardsmith/noise-farmer Campbell Kneale. Rated by the horses mouth as the best thing he ever made, EVER, Blue Eyes Are My Rewardshimmers like an icicle-clad forest resplendent in its own crystalline magnificence. Snake-charming groove, dub-like boomph, and bleary-eyed strum blast the path out of a decidedly graying world of so-so metalized MySpace drone into a miniaturized drone-prairie of super-powered star-shine and dazzling stellar-commotion. Beyond the tyrannous clutches of omnipresent zeroes and ones, the macro and micro merge into an all-encompassing nowhere of sound, each expansion checked by equal contraction like Messiaens "modes of limited transportation" scrambled by the Large Hadron Collider and replayed by one of those little twinkly watch reflections that occasionally dance around on the roof.” - Krayon.

“The A-side drops straight into one of those time-evaporating sleights-of-hand from a simple stack of loops. A tidal guitar figure wraps around sparse ricocheting foundations of moiré percussion as harmonic resonances flow in and around the space, segueing into one of the most beautiful pieces Vibracathedral Orchestra have ever caught on tape. A truly glorious cascade of pentatonic feedback augmented by circling horn ascensions and the ever-present hand drum and shaker, rattle and oomph. The B-side was recorded on the same binaural bonce as the A but instead is a fully blown-out NO-FI blast documenting a performance at Cafe OTO and features trap-star Chris Corsano. A wild, snow-blind, open-cranium trip. Corsanos drums flatten to a blur of metallic clatter, spiky overtones, and room-levitating bass drum punctuation. Ideas rise and fall from within the maelstrom of their ritual; a two-finger tonebank solo teeters on the brink of its own crisis, the occasional astral whizz-bang floats around the ear-space drawing out your minds focus, a bloated, head-nodding bass riff appears, everyone gets involved. The shred goes seriously out, taking every head and item of furniture not nailed down with it. Art by John Godbert; design by Michael Flower. Mastered and cut by Lewis Hopkin.” - Krayon.

"Second album by the band that managed to put Milwaukee in the musical map of the world. This is another story of a band who could have been at the top... and sadly werent. Despite recording their debut album with Capitol and opening for Cream on their North-American Tour, the record flopped and the band had to turn to the small label Age of Aquarius. The recordings that were made for their second Capitol album were spread between this and their third and final album. Any fan of psychedelic music will welcome this -- their music can be compared to bands the likes of Iron Butterfly or Cream, and at times to Freeborne. Really impressive musicianship by all band members, with Pat McCarthy on the B-3 Hammond deserving special consideration, and a psychedelic vibe all around. Fuzz guitar all over, great vocal harmonies, accurate horn arrangements and an occasional but wise use of a flute." -KS.

Format: LP
Label: KS Art Yard Series
Country: Netherlands
Price: $25.00
"The KS Art Yard series is a collaboration between Kindred Spirits and Art Yard, presenting high-quality collectors editions of these classic records. Salah Ragab formed the first jazz big band in Egypt (The Cairo Jazz Band) in 1968. He was also the leader of the Military Music Departments in Heliopolis and some of the best musicians in Egypt of that time were members of the band such as Zaki Osman (trumpet), Saied Salama (tenor sax), Khamis El ‐Kholy, (piano) and Ala Mostafa (piano). On this recording, the band consists of five saxophones, four trumpets, four trombones, piano, bass, drums, percussion and other exotic instruments. Salah Ragab accompanied the great band leader and composer Sun Ra on a tour in Egypt, Greece, France and Spain in 1984. He also studied jazz theories and improvisation with the jazz musician and composer from Kansas City Osman Kareem, with whom he formed the first jazz quintet in Cairo in 1963, recording with the Radio Service of Cairo. These recordings present Salah Ragab And The Cairo Jazz Bands definitive work, recorded in Heliopolis, Egypt between 1968 and 1973. The definitive work corresponds to the cross‐over of musical styles at the time of the recording, which were produced 6,000 miles away across the Mediterranean and Atlantic in New York with releases on Moodsville by Yusef Lateef and RCA by Ahmud Abdul‐Malik. Egyptian Jazz represents The Cairo Jazz Band responding to the American jazz scene of the 60s and 70s with influences from Mongo Santamaria to Randy Weston and Sun Ra.

Format: LP
Label: KS Art Yard Series
Country: Netherlands
Price: $25.00
...& HIS SOLAR ARKESTRA "Whatever it was that sparked Sun Ra to investigate the funk between 1976 and 1979, we should all be thankful that he did. Having explored dreamy, languid rhythms before ‐- with off‐key arrangements and chants on records like New Steps, Lanquidity, Of Mythic Worlds, and Disco 3000 -‐ On Jupiter, originally released in 1979, sees Sun Ra really flexing his funk muscles, stretching the group like a rubber band. Blissful, flanged guitar threads its way throughout the title track, and Ra throws up piano chords and vamps all over an upfront, but fragmented bass pulse. But while the Arkestra might be getting their oblique grind on in the rhythm section, the music still carries those cosmic messages from the stars. Just as Ra transplanted the big band traditions of Fletcher Henderson and Duke Ellington into his own cosmic vision, here he takes the backbeat of funk and disco, and teleports it into another dimension. Despite revamping the current musical trends, the emotional core of this LP is something that Sun Ra never forgot. There is a story that when they were rehearsing ["UFO"], some of the musicians complained when Sonny asked them to listen to examples of currently popular disco records: "This is some hokey shit, Sonny," they said. "This hokey shit is somebodys hopes and dreams," he chided them. "Dont be so hip!" Something else to note on this singular LP is the way it has been mixed. Michael Ray, the horn player, was sent back to the Arkestra base by Sun Ra during the mixing session, and returned with "a handful of tapes," with which he then dubbed all kinds of percussion, guitar, and vocals into the studio mix ‐- bringing another ghostly, spacey element to the layers. This album stands out in one of Sun Ras most exciting creative periods, and its incredible to think of Ra, then in his mid‐60s, still pushing the group to further heights, and taking no prisoners. As he chants on "UFO": "I know you got a hiding place, somewhere deep in outer space! Watch out!" Housed in a heavy, rigid outer sleeve and pressed on 180 gram vinyl.

Label: KS Art Yard Series
Country: Netherlands
Price: $25.00
...& HIS INTERGALACTIC MYTH SCIENCE SOLAR ARKESTRA "This LP of Sun Ras from 1979 marks a pinnacle in one of the Arkestras most‐loved phases, as they embraced a funky, laid‐back groove and shuffled through three tracks of upfront bass, electric guitar, spacey Fender Rhodes, and Luqman Alis signature late snares. With this rhythmic core, the rest of the Arkestra step up with solos, slightly out-of-tune harmonies, and vocal chants. "Door Of The Cosmos" kicks the record off at a mid‐tempo pace with handclaps, vibraphones, a killer trumpet solo from Michael Ray, and a poetic chorus from June Tyson. But its "Springtime Again" and the title track "Sleeping Beauty" that really steal the show, so loose that they threaten to fall apart, yet somehow the music holds together as the group rock back and forth like a hammock. Its testament to Sun Ra as a band leader that he could get such restrained yet emotional performances from the Arkestra, floating in and out of time and tune, on the edge of disintegration. "Sleeping Beauty" stands out in Ras massive and varied discography as a true high point, with restrained and dreamy electric piano from the man himself, and hypnotic performances from Arkestra players like John Gilmore, Marshall Allen, Francisco Mora, Danny Thompson, James Jacson, and the Disco Kid on guitar. This is the album 70s-era Miles Davis and Joe Zawinul wished they could have made together, but it couldnt have come from anyone, or anywhere, else. A favorite of producers and music lovers like Madlib, Yo La Tengo, Carlos Nino, Jimi Tenor, Tortoise, 4Hero, Kirk Degiorgio, Carl Craig, and Theo Parrish, this LP is quite simply a masterpiece, and anyone with even the slightest interest in Sun Ra and jazz should check it out. Inspired space‐age lullaby music of the highest order. This essential Sun Ra deluxe edition is housed in a heavy, rigid cardboard outer sleeve and pressed on 180 gram vinyl.

Format: LP
Label: KS Art Yard Series
Country: Netherlands
Price: $25.00
"Although Sun Ra wouldnt have called Earth home, there were a couple of cities that proved to have considerable significance on him and his music, and Philadelphia was one of the places that he really felt in his element. With the Arkestra HQ based at Marshall Allens family home, a period of stability followed that resulted in some of Sun Ras most well‐loved albums like Lanquidity, Sleeping Beauty, and On Jupiter. With the Foxhole Cafe and WXPN‐FM radio studio, there were excellent facilities for Sun Ra to broadcast his music to the world. The vitality you can hear on 1978s Antique Blacks is a testament to the unique energy of the community around The Foxhole. From Arkestra sax‐man Danny Thompson running the local convenience store, to the small but perfectly-formed Philly Jazz label, to knickers being thrown at Ra during a concert at the Foxhole, Philly lit Sun Ras creative spark from 1968 right up to the early 90s. On Antique Blacks, Sun Ra blends elements of free jazz, off‐key synth explorations, and experimental theater into an otherworldly concoction that doesnt crop up anywhere else in the Arkestras massive discography. He relishes his role as galactic narrator, with lines like "Lets try something different for you... Something like being alive, hahahaha!" sounding more like a quote from Zoltar rather than the Afro‐futurist bandleader we all know. Antique Blacks takes its starting point from The Bible and slavery, and throws these issues into the contemporary political frame hurtling up‐to‐date with late 60s Civil Rights. At this time, the Arkestra typically consisted of 20 to 30 musicians, dancers, singers, and fire‐eaters, combined with elaborate lighting effects and playing sets for 2-3 hours non‐stop. The Arkestra was a regular fixture around Philly, giving lectures and community workshops, drifting among the bookshelves of the city library, and performing at the closing party of the very last night of the Foxhole in October 1982. Rumors of increased UFO sightings over the Philadelphia airspace are unfounded, but one thing is certain: Sun Ra and the Arkestra will go down in the chapters of Philadelphias rich jazz history, just as non‐earth‐dwellers will make pilgrimages to the human metropolis known as Philadelphia in light years to come. Comes with an insert featuring an unpublished photo and new liner notes by the Arkestras Michael Anderson. Housed in a rigid, spot-varnished outer sleeve and pressed on 180 gram vinyl.

Kuupuu is the work of Jonna Karanka, who has spent time in Avarus and The Anaksimandros, and her self-released solo outing Kulta Sulka is one of the many gems to hail from the Finnish scene. Her sound kaleidoscopes indicate a tenuous grip on the art of songwriting, often meandering into eerie loops of breathy woodwinds trapped in cyclonic infinitude, or murky collages distorted with cheaply rendered, sci-fi laser pings. Yet Karankas dreamily cracked songs are her strenght, and they ache with the melancholy of the best acid folk chanteuses the 70s had to offer. The elegant simplicity of her acoustic guitar and haunted toy box melodies shroud the album in dark, earthy spiritualism." - Jim Haynes / The Wire 268.

Format: Double CD
Label: Kvist
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"Kvist Records presents this 2CD release, reissuing out-of-print works originally released on the artists own Somnath label. Although Tom Hamiltons more recent CDs (London Fix, Off-Hour Wait State, and Shadow Machine) are well known to fans of electronic music and reviewers alike, his earlier LP recordings became known as underground classics to the collectors of independent music from that era. This 2CD set was made from the original master tapes, and brings to light some of the best work of Hamiltons highly prolific St. Louis years, starting decades before he became involved with musical life in downtown New York. In the 1970s, Hamilton was working in semi-isolation, though connected to a burgeoning arts scene in St. Louis, and developing his idiosyncratic techniques with the ARP and Serge modular analog synthesizers of that era. The first CD, Pieces For Kohn, is comprised of four multi-layered electronic pieces, musical responses to four paintings by artist Bill Kohn. The second CD, Formal & Informal Music, contains the title piece Formal & Informal Music (1980), and Crimson Sterling (1973) -- both featuring improvisations by JD Parran, woodwinds, Rich ODonnell, percussion, and Hamilton on analog synthesizers. The music on these CDs establish some of Hamiltons most prominent style characteristics: clouds of fast pitches hinting at pointillistic and kinetic imagery; suggestions of tonality without real resolution; and highly-charged rhythms contributing to intricate textures -- sometimes existing on their own, sometimes offering accompaniment to improvising soloists." - Kvist.

Artist: RAGLANI
Title: Web Of Light
Format: LP
Label: Kvist
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Raglanis use of analogue electronics is tied to traditional Krautrock by a thread of dark romanticism extending, in Germany, back to the work of Caspar David Friedrich. Epic and tumultuous landscapes as images of psychic space; hazardous journeys through awesome and forbidding worlds; the hair-blown viewer looking down onto incredible canyons The entire extended metaphor of Friedrichs work, linking the arc of a spiritual journey to the beautiful and tumultuous work of nature, is conserved in the work of the kosmische school. Raglanis relationship with the music of Schulze or Fricke is not retrospective, but contemporary. The musical commonalities proceed from a shared commitment to the elaboration of exotic musical spaces, pursued chiefly through melody, adorned by figurative electronic flourishes and concrète motifs. What is missed in alot of drone and noise is the ability of the sound to paint a scene; too often, were presented with a blandly ecstatic wash of lo-fi murk, more stoned than psychedelic. Raglani avoids these generic limitations by engaging more directly with the tradition to which his peers owe, arguably, the most considerable debt. What he deepens in that tradition is in the abstraction and development of themes spreading out the narrative through textural variation, rather than driving ever forward through arpeggios and circular rhythms. If Raglani avoids the ascending freakouts of early kosmische music, however, it is because everyday life today is freaked out enough on its own. What is needed, rather, are sounds that can address our already-piqued uncertainty by involving it in a story it might recognize as its own. So there is little here, also, to tether Raglani to the generic vibrations of noise and drone, though he uses some of the machines that make them; instead of any massive simultaneous display, secrets are revealed gradually and cumulatively. Raglanis voice may sound familiar at first, and there is no doubting its context and sources, but the events described by his music trickle out in shapes, and at a pace, uniquely his. The scenes he composes, surreal but distinct, have all the luster of real paint." Mike Ferrer.

"Kye is proud to present Inland, the new LP by Clapton-based Astor. Advancing the cause of 2012s Alcor LP, Inland finds Mark Harwood and sometime collaborator Maja Larsson further complicating reason with dark and circuitous audio constructs. Taking its inspiration from Gerard Murnanes 1988 novel of the same name, Inland explores a personalized perception of space, both real and imagined, returning a fabricated dreamworld which teases logic and tricks the ear. Conceived with piano, bells, tapes, gong, autoharp, hammer, t.v., organ, and dry ice pellets, Inland cuts the face of expectation to expose a 10 part fractal sonic geography, governed by its own laws, and flushed with all the beauty and horror of the natural world. Inland arrives in a full color, high gloss sleeve, in an edition of 400 copies." - Kye.

"Sunday Night, Sunday Afternoon is the debut LP by the duo of Marcia Bassett and Samara Lubelski. Both musicians have played crucial roles in the development of underground sound over the last 20 years, tinting the broad waters of abstract folk, chromatic noise and long form drone, and cementing themselves as cornerstone artists in the process. Sunday Night, Sunday Afternoon is the perfect synthesis of Bassett and Lubelskis individual crafts - two sidelong forays into deep black string meditation that hang in the air like ghosts on Ludlow Street. Sunday Night, Sunday Afternoon was recorded/mixed by Barry Weisblat in 2010 in Brooklyn, NY, and arrives in a high gloss monochrome sleeve, in an edition of 500 copies." -Kye.

Since that time, the duo of Tim Goss and Chloe Mutter have been locked in perfect isolation, teasing every nuance of their sound into sharp focus. The Rising presents the results of their toil, exposing Call Back The Giants as true masters of cryptic intent. Homespun keyboard minimalism, wavering teenage laments, and foreboding pronouncements of doom, synthesize into new, original matrices of thought. The Rising also introduces the guitar heroics of some-time third member, Big Rob Stewart, who lays down the law in crude basement style.

OM Entering. and Once Enterd comprises four previously unreleased recordings with the Barton Workshop, taken from performances in the Netherlands, and South Korea, between 2000-2007. OM ENTRANCE. OM ENTERTRANCE. which one does....because the performance is a real "passage from the material to the spiritual" unless the "real" world is just as spiritual already which i like to think it is. As perhaps an everyday awareness is already to be entranced which i have been told it is, really. To the facts: musicians coming-in already the performance of everything has to be done to get ready from unpacking to tuning and all that is done in the concentrated and exalted spirit of real music. Multiplicity moves noise to instrument possibilities with virtuosity show-offs slowing down to a perfect tuning in a quiet circle from where there is nowhere else to go but the sustaining of a quiet long tone. My old friend and colleague also great composer Jim Fulkerson is there as he has be, as he was even at the first performance way back must be almost 50 years by now joining the Creative Associates at the University of Buffalo on his initiative as likewise these performances in Holland with his group he calls The Barton Workshop and for sure he is there playing trombone too. The movement from SANG/TEH (SITUATIONS). Guard duty in a cold Korean winter. This piece was a major turning-point in my work. My life too you-could-say. "Of Ancient Times and Modern Sounds" i wrote then: a better world---much much better---than being in the American Army. The heterophonic melody-only texture learned from their "Ah Ahk" court music ("Soo Je Chun" the most beautiful music in the history of the world!) imposed on a thoroughly modern chromatic note structure. Occidental instruments absorbing the traditions of subtle sound colours so-long absent from the West. Public performance in Seoul. That must have been the Spring of 1961 just before they "shipped me out", to bring all that back home. Before that the wonderful and exceptional opportunity to "run through" some of it with the indigenous instruments of the Koog Ahk Wun (National Music Institute) thanks to the cultural open-mindedness of the classical kayageum master Byungki Hwang. And Jim has not only played the 3rd movement often, but brought if back to Korea once at the Pan Music Festival. But my long-waiting-for performance in Korea on native instruments has yet to take place. The CHOPIN PRELUDE piece is one of two, reworking passages from his D Major Prelude for piano, and a part of the "as a revelation" series which "looks into" moments from the classics which usually go by too fast. Begun with Mozart, the series has "got a lot of mileage" out of Satie, as well as including Buxtehude, Bach, Rimsky-Korsakoff, Verdi, Ives, Berlioz,, and others." - Philip Corner, 2015.

Crete Soundies presents three new pieces -- Magnesia (2006), Anemos (2007) and East Crete (2008-2009). These works were born from two years of Levka Ori sound research, and an additional year in east Crete in collaboration with fellow sound artist Francoise Vanhecke. Moniek Darge was born in Bruges, 1952 and studied music theory and violin at the Music Conservatory of Bruges, painting at the Ghent Royal Academy of Fine Arts; Art History, Philosophy and Anthropology at the University of Ghent, Belgium. She is active as composer, violinist, performer and audio artist and has built light and soundsculptures, installations, musical instruments and for many years has been constructing a series of alternative music boxes, with which she also performs. Darge has specialised in both soundscapes and live-art performances in which visual and musical aspects are combined and in interactional improvisation on violin. Since 1970 she has performed around the world and has been active on stage, first with the Logos Ensemble, then with Logos Duo (together with Godfired-Willem Raes), and more recently with the M&M robot ensemble.

"New 2011 edition of this cornerstone sound art collection, originally published in 1987 on LP by Igloo. "In most ethnic cultures, sacred places serve an important social function. The qualities, typical of these places, explain to western people the magic magnetism of these "holy grounds". During our international Logos Duo concert tours we have had the opportunity to visit quite a few of these places. Uluru, the "Shadowgiving Mountain" of the Aborigines, better known under its western name of Ayers Rock (Australia), impressed us more than any other. The presence of water and an enormous monolith in the midst of the vast desert plain is given as an explanation for its magical appeal. But to the Aborigines, each little place of the rock contains tracks of their ancestors, the "Dreamtime People", who live in this mountain and speak to them in the sounds of the winds howling through the crevasses and rockholes. Uluru is also the dwelling-place of the "World Serpent", the most powerful totem shared by the surrounding tribes. Sounds of Sacred Places attempts to transform the listener into a living witness of the sounds of similar places, not far away in any specific ethnic culture, but in Flanders". (Moniek Darge, 1987).

"Kye and Penultimate Press are very proud to present a collaborative release from Moniek Darge (Belgium) and Graham Lambkin (UK). "I have always been interested in sounds in general. When reading and teaching about the futurists, I fully agreed that the sound of engines and machines could be as interesting as the sound produced by musical instruments. But not only industrial sounds fascinate me - I also find the sounds of nature very inspiring. What I love to do is make soundscapes, and I try to give an impression of a certain space. I am fascinated by a lot of so-called sacred places in the world, in etnic cultures, but also in our own cities. I try to recall the atmosphere of such a place, the quietness, the subtile sounds, or simply whats happening. I started with places in Ghent, where I live, and little by little – I have always loved to travel – I began to think - hé, it would be nice to do the same thing at different places on earth. So I started to go to different countries with the purpose of making soundscapes. With our Logos Duo, ever since 1980, I was already travelling around the world to give concerts, and thus I already collected sounds from all continents. Lately Ive been traveling to India and recording the sounds typical in certain regions. You will hear sounds of traffic, of religious ceremonies, of commercial music, mixed with merchants voices, nature sounds. I asked my friend Graham Lambkin to join me in the creation of these Indian soundscapes. We had previously performed Tamil Nadu and an early version of Indian Weather Trap together in concert at Issue Project Room, NYC, 2011 alongside our friend Françoise Vanhecke. I further invited Graham to make his own Indian soundscape in his own style, using materials gathered online, to bring our CD to a close. So just sit back quietly and enjoy. Lets all travel together on the wings of sound." - Moniek Darge.  Indian Soundies arrives in a deluxe full-color 6 panel digipack, in a limited edition of 400 copies." - Kye.

Although The Rise of Elklink was produced in tandum with The Shadow Rings Lindus LP, the two projects were different in intent. Song form and narration are replaced by walls of quiet, crumbling vocal concrete, meaningless stoned monologues and adjacent audio seepage, captured to 4-track in the backroom of a small Cuban crèche in Miami FL. This LP reissue restores all six tracks from the original cassette, and adds the Elklink contribution to the Colour In Absence Sound CD comp from the same year.

"Helm is the ambiguous solo moniker of London-based sound architect Luke Younger. Although, perhaps best known as one half of the pioneering avant-drone outfit Birds of Delay, it is in the more esoteric work of Helm that Lukes art takes on its most radical shape. 2010s debut LP To An End confirmed that in an age of fleeting trends and fly-by-night fancies, there were still a few old souls prepared to knuckle down and deliver the goods that people want to receive. Cryptography carries forward that noble mindset, presenting a new five-part suite of expertly rendered electro-acoustic study. Using processed piano, Casio MT-40, cymbal and guitar strings Cryptography steers the Helm sound through a melange of fringe territories: glacial drone meditations, reconfigured gamelan clusters, and howling walls of organized feedback, all coalesced in classic UK post-industrial fashion. Indeed, had it been conceived of 30 years prior, it would be easy to imagine Cryptography winning a seat in the United Dairies, or Dom America catalog, such is its commitment to homemade exploratory zeal.

Heyboers stature in visual arts is well known and internationally celebrated, but documentation of his audio work is scant and difficult to locate. Heyboers only previous vinyl release - 1976s ill-fated She And She As One LP (EMI) introduced a music so resolutely personal and uncommercial in nature that EMI ordered the unsold bulk of the pressing withdrawn and destroyed. Further recordings of Heyboers anomalous music eventually trickled out via a string of private press micro-edition CDs/CDRs through the Anton Heyboer Foundation in the 1990s. Released with full approval from VOF Heyboer and overseen by Lotti Heyboer, Rules Of The Universe draws from over seven hours of surviving archival tapes, restoring the cream of the CDR editions and supplementing it with a selection of previously unheard tracks. Rules Of The Universe offers a fresh reappraisal of a lesser-known - but no less important field of creativity from one of the 20th Centurys most original artistic minds.

For over three decades Jaworzyn has colored the varied waters of underground practice with his unique and darkly acerbic hue. His tenure in such genre-defining units as Skullflower; Whitehouse and Ascension/Descension, and his scholarly position on extreme cinema have awarded Jaworzyn his reputation as a counter-cultural impresario. He is equally regarded for his solo work, which has taken in everything from D.I.Y. cassette noise, rhythm box processions, to free guitar barbarism and beyond. Returning from a period of self-imposed exile Jaworzyn has re-organized his delivery into a synthesized charge of hard patterned electronics. The first rewards of this resurgence came last year via a pair of 12" EPs released through Jaworzyns revived Shock label. The Annihilating Light continues the story by showcasing two brand new long-form compositions. Oasis Of Filth unveils a brooding synthetic wasteland, percolating with malevolence and spite; Cast Out, by contrast, offers a head-crushing impasse of electronic stasis, fully flushed with classic anti-social potential. Expertly mastered by Jason Lescalleet at Glistening Labs The Annihilating Light arrives in a full color, high gloss sleeve, with black matte inners, in an edition of 500 copies." -Kye.

Title: Lymph Est
Format: LP
Label: Kye
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
“Kye is proud to present Lymph Est, the brand new LP by Matt Krefting. Kreftings chronology is a deep-rooted and complex one, seeded in the foundation of the Apostasy imprint, and the animation of its numerous transitory groups, most notably Son of Earth, of which he played a crucial part. Concurrently, Krefting has won a reputation for his solo tape-based work, circulated primarily in secretive micro-editions, before eventually reaching a wider audience via last years critically acclaimed High Hopes LP (Open Mouth). Lymph Est presents the advance of Kreftings march, and stands as the purist distillation of his art to date. Taking the common garden apparatus of cassettes, mics and amplification, Krefting constructs a music of rare simplicity and abundant mystery. Treated voices, piano, samples and T.V. grabs are ushered into a series of soft-focus miniatures that are built to be razed in a perpetual cycle of triumph and defeat. Lymph Est exists as a far-flung landscape where outline and definition are lost to time, and the fading signature of recall wanes to a pallid script. Mastered by Jason Lescalleet at Glistening Labs Lymph Est arrives in a full color Krefting designed sleeve, with complimentary innerbags/labels in an edition of 400 copies.” - Kye.

"Poem is Graham Lambkins (Shadow Ring, Tart, Transmission, etc..) first solo LP, and it is a doozy. Slowed down voice, water sounds, a little bit of radio, and some odd hisses and hums all combine for a very linear and yet insane listening experience. The sound soon becomes a strange syrup that surrounds the listener in its devilishly well-crafted coccoon. The editing is very subtle, but very rewarding to the patient listener. And: (1) this is one of the top records to listen to with that last drink at 5 or 6 AM (it works!); and (2) this can easily sort out the contenders from the pretenders at any social gathering. A real favorite of mine." - Scott Foust.

A man whose craft is born from that which others pronounce dead. Jason Lescalleet stands at the intersection where musique concrète, power electronics, tape composition and minimalism touch. His is a voice that is heard on the world stage. That is recognized and described. Through his recorded work and in live performance Jason has known the company of such great men as Joe Colley, John Hudak, Phill Niblock and Greg Kelley, to name but few. His art has found publication on such revered imprints as RRR, Erstwhile and his own Glistening Labs. And it is with no small pride that Kye now adds itself to the list.

Price: $17.00
"Kye is proud to present Much To My Demise, the brand new solo LP by Jason Lescalleet. Since establishing himself as a preeminent voice in contemporary electro-acoustic study, Jason Lescalleet has, through his solo work and in collaboration, exploded the notion of what is possible within the realm of tape-based music. His recorded catalog acknowledges a diversity of application, from lo-fi reel-to-reel soundscaping and work for hand-held cassette machines, on through to digital sampling and computer generated composition. Lescalleets live actions further expand his ouevre to include work with video, dance, performance art and multi-media concerns. In recent years Lescalleets work has done much to explore the theme of loss and decay as sound - Another Example Of Parkinsons Law (2001), Ineinandergreifen and Untitled (from Mattresslessness) (2002) and The Pilgrim (2006) all hold the concept of senescence at heart. Much To My Demise carries the motif of decomposition further still. Recorded and constructed solely with analog sources, Much To My Demise showcases the result of a three month process in which pre-recorded reels of tape were transported outdoors, buried in soil and encouraged to corrode. The reels were then excavated, and their resultant signals transferred and edited to form an apparitional triptych of faded gesture and mood. Much To My Demise shows Lescalleet at a new creative peak, crafting a music that is equal parts comforting and haunting, and allowing us access to secret world of sound hidden in plain sight. Expertly mastered at Glistening Labs, Berwick, ME, Much To My Demise arrives in a Lescalleet designed monochromatic reverse board sleeve, with card stock insert, on white vinyl, in an edition of 500 copies." -Kye.

The Episcopal order graciously made their facilities available for concerts in 1968 and my first recordings for CJRecords -Underground Railroad in 1968.

Excerpts (& Half-Speeds) is Dan Melchiors hammer in the mirror.

In 2008, she launched her own CD-R label, Music Appreciation, and through this imprint has released four solo albums: Misafridal, Imperial Brick, Whoreson in the Wilderness and the award-winning Dogs in English Porcelain. Her most recent release, the PDD-NOS (Period Tapes) cassette was described by Byron Coley in The Wire as sounding like being under attack from slow-moving dune worms. Mineral Orange presents four new works, each showcasing Vanessas deep commitment to abstract sound situations. These pieces exist as precision-edited travelogs of Vanessas questing.

This Is A Recorder enumerates the colorful events of a drunken birthday weekend lost to Mardi Gras, New Orleans between Feb 8th-13th 2013. Localized field recordings and conversational excerpts are combined with violin/electronics and processed into a detail-rich diaristic plateau that perfectly captures the heady climate of the source. Whole Stories by contrast, examines the dichotomy of luck verses agency, employing as its basic material the roseate whirl of a casino hall as backdrop to a slowly unfolding narrative that reflects on a life ravaged by disappointment and woe.

Title: Life Review (1993-2003)
Format: Double CD
Label: Kye
Country: USA
Price: $28.00
"The Shadow Ring formed in the seaside town of Folkestone, England in 1993. Over the course of a decade, and through eight LPs, Graham Lambkin, Darren Harris and later Tim Goss scraped out a unique musical pathway for themselves, armed with only the barest of tools. With each release the Shadow Ring presented themselves as a group in constant flux. Naive acoustic improvisations, dour bedroom sci-fi epics, cryptic D.I.Y. theatre and glacial electronic soundscapes all became fair game in their hands. The group recorded for some of the premier underground labels of the era: Siltbreeze, Corpus Hermeticum, Swill Radio and their own Dry Leaf Discs were all at one time or another called home. The Shadow Ring were also champions of the absurd -- never playing live in their home country, they instead performed 23 shows across the US between 1995-97. The life of the Shadow Ring finally came to pass on the banks of the Hudson River in 2003. Life Review offers a celebration of the Shadow Rings oeuvre -- from the green chaos of 1993s Dont Open The Window 7" on through to the austerity of 2003s Im Some Songs LP. Featuring material from each of their albums: City Lights, Put The Music In Its Coffin, Wax-Work Echoes, Live In U.S.A., Hold Onto I.D., Lighthouse, Lindus and Im Some Songs, alongside 7" A and B sides, comp appearances, and a clutch of previously unreleased live and studio work, Life Review is an anthology that will serve both the aged fan, and the curious newcomer. Expertly mastered by long-time enthusiast Bhob Rainey, Life Review flushes out the rich sonic detail of the Shadow Rings music like never before. Housed in a deluxe six-panel digipak, with an accompanying 16 page color booklet of photos, flyers, sleeve art etc, Life Review also offers an untainted visual history of the group. With 34 tracks -- personally chosen by Graham Lambkin, and a running time of 154 minutes, Life Review offers the perfect chance to say a final farewell. One more time." -KYE. Very highly recommended!

Title: Lend an Ear, Leave a Word
Format: LP
Label: Kye
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Kye is proud to present “Lend an ear, leave a word” the new LP from Glasgows Mark Vernon. "The pieces composed for this album combine field recordings of contemporary Lisbon with found tape recordings from the past;  reel-to-reel tapes, micro-cassettes and Dictaphones collected from the Feira de Ladra market, a popular and lively flea market in the Alfarma district. Each tape recording is an audio snapshot of a specific time; a family album in sound, a musical performance, a compilation of treasured music, or even just the fun of playing around with a tape recorder captured for posterity. Every thoughtless edit or push of the record button teleports us to a different time and place. The musical material extracted from the tapes is also an evocative signifier  that locates it within a specific era. The interesting thing is how the tapes accumulate different strata of time even within a single side.There are consecutive chronological recordings but also sequences with unexpected breakthroughs where the user has carelessly fast-forwarded through the tape, randomly ‘dropping-in’ new recordings. These accidental edits create instantaneous new collages of sounds and voices.  I have endeavoured  to retain the essence of these unintentional edits and unexpected outbursts in the pieces I have assembled here. The noisy whir and clicking of the various tape mechanisms is evident on many of the found recordings. As the material is sped up and slowed down it acts as an internal clock, a continuous, steady marker of time, almost like the second hand of a timepiece. All of the pieces contained here within explore one particular environment - the city of Lisbon. Field recordings by their very nature are time-based but the introduction of found tapes into the mix expands the time-scale of these studies from just the short period spent in the city making recordings, backwards to possibly forty or more years in the past. It is a portrait in time *and* place, an archeology of sound. The result of the audio flotsam and jetsam washed up on the shores of low commerce in the flea markets of Lisbon." (Mark Vernon) “Lend an ear, leave a word” arrives in a full color matte stock sleeve with insert and download card that features additional pieces left off the LP due to time constraints. Mastered by Jason Lescalleet in an edition of 400." - Kye.
