Ilya Monosov and Preston Swirnoff have released four highly acclaimed LPs of wide-ranging music on Eclipse Records and have just released The Shining Path debut self-titled full length LP/CD on Holy Mountain this month.

Artist: CLARK, TODD TAMANEND
Title: Into The Vision
Format: LP
Label: T.M.I.
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
Released as TODD CLARK. Original/sealed copies of this 1984 LP featuring Allen Ravenstine (PERE UBU) and Cheetah Chrome (ROCKET FROM THE TOMBS, DEAD BOYS). "Todd Tamanend Clark (known to us who bought his classic mid-eighties self-released album INTO THE VISION as just plain old Todd Clark) is one person who really might be able to be classified as a bona-fide enigma. Well, at least he sure seemed that way when that aforementioned platter got unleashed onto an unsuspecting underground music loving clique back in the middle of one of the more boring decades ever at least until the nineties and oh-ohs...after all, here was a guy coming atcha in the midst of all this geeky post-wave and slick pop and light metal, and with an electronic barrage that hadda be heard to be believed! And not only that but he was getting such bigname (at least in my book) talent as Cheetah Chrome, Alan Ravenstine and William Burroughs to appear on his disc which at the time seemed like a big feather in his cap and his feather certainly made for my obsessive/compulsive-about-such-things pleasure, thats for sure! OK, the Burroughs recitation on the title track was taken straight offa CALL ME BURROUGHS (Clark may be good but he aint no Dashiel Hedayat!) but the nova synthroid energy was still there and considering how this guy came off like all the best the seventies hadda offer wrapped up for mid-eighties sound gobble, who could (especially in 1985) ask for anything more? Back then I had Clark pegged as being a healthy mix of early-seventies Eno and even-earlier-seventies Alice Cooper, and twenty years down the line I gotta commend myself for being astute about such things even then!" - Chris Stigliano, Blog to Comm.

Artist: AUBE
Title: Pole Nord
Format: 3" CDR
Label: Taalem
Country: France
Price: $7.00
"composed, recorded & mixed by akifumi nakajima at studio MECCA kyoto japan using only feedbacks. Does Aube really need an introduction ? After more than 160 releases (!) in fourteen years, I guess he doesnt. For this 3"cd-r, Akifumi Nakajima has, as usual, used a single source to create his music ; this time feedback. You could then imagine the tracks to be noisy as hell. Thankfully theyre not. Aube knows perfectly how to mix noise and ambient music. So the result is noisy, yes, but listenable ; ambient, too, but not boring. A great work, as usual should I say." - Taalem.

Title: kdi dctb 122 [f]
Format: 3" CDR
Label: Taalem
Country: France
Price: $7.00
"kdi dctb 122 [f]" was done in november 2005 by cédric peyronnet. This stereo-reduction was especially made for headphone listenings. "kdi dctb 122" was a sound work of interpreted cartography whose theme was, on one hand, the sound environment in an area of 750m around the village of La Pommerie (in the town of St Sétiers), and on second hand, the sound events related to the birth of the morning dew in the same area. The 10-channels audio system restores 10 places from the area ; it can be considered as a partial restitution [a cartography sound work] of La Pommerie in july 2001 without pretending being the truth. But "kdi dctb 122" is also and above all a musical piece made of 10 elements that can be heard alone or all together, the exhibition place becoming the listening place. Here, space occupation and spacialization were major concerns during the installation of the work. Work was made of many recordings in/on 10 "micro-places" of the area ; every element was recorded. These field recordings were later sculpted with hard & and software. The final composition was only made with those elements ; so it can be considered as "the music of the place", a microscopic exploration of space..." - Taalem.

Artist: ARKANSAW MAN
Title: Arkansaw Man
Format: CD
Label: Table Of The Elements
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"Here is the unlikely CD debut of Arkansaw Man, a wildly obscure San Francisco art-punk band that flickered to life all so briefly in 1981. 25 minutes of music, 25 years ago -- and sayonara. Still, the best things in life -- in the life of music, anyway -- often are tucked away where they are hard to find. With a brilliant economy of means and a sparseness reminiscent of dub, the band got an amazing jump start on post-rock. It revels in terse and choppy guitar, the languid, sour leakage of keyboards and horns, and occasional lyrics sung as ironic disclaimer, while the spare yet vaguely ominous bass lines recall Gang of Four played back at 4 RPM. A quarter of a century ago, the spindly funk machinery and discordant scraping guitars of Arkansaw Man failed to give the world much to latch onto, so its music got lost, abandoned in a locker at pop cultures bus depot, the key left floating in a gutter somewhere one day to be scavenged. Theres no better place to find a glimmer of artistic gold." - Table Of The Elements.

Artist: ATELEIA/BENJAMIN CURTIS
Title: Baghdad Batterie
Format: LP
Label: Table of the Elements
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"On Baghdad Batterie, Ateleia and Benjamin Curtis fuse splendidly, as perfectly synchronized audio alchemists, and when they dip their axes in a vat of liquid electronica, the transmutation is complete:thick, glistening beats throb and undulate, without a tell-tale twang in sight. Baghdad Batterie is a fabulous piece of laptop psychedelia, and certain to delight fans of Curtis and Elliotts previous collaboration, the exhilarating School Of Seven Bells EP, Face to Face on High Places. The packaging of this vinyl-only release is similarly spectacular. Its a one-sided, 12-inch LP, pressed on clear vinyl; the reverse is laser etched with an original illustration by acclaimed UK artist Savage Pencil, whose credits include album art for The Fall, Big Black, and Sonic Youth. Its a limited-edition pressing, so get it while you can -- disks from the labels original Guitar Series in 1993/1994 are now some of Collectorvilles must coveted treasures." -Table of the Elements

Label: Table of the Elements
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"With Same Places (Slow Version), Belong evinces a slow-motion transformation -- plate tectonics, wired for sound. Aural mountains melt into seas; yet icy barrens yield to breathing jungles of detail. The single, sprawling track may evoke decay, dissolution and destruction, but underfoot are tendrils of inexplicable joy. Belong sings a lullaby of obliteration, and the paradox it embodies would make both Kevin Shields and Tony Conrad proud: crushing melancholia and shuddering euphoria, inexorably intertwined."

Label: Table Of The Elements
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"From 1962 through 1965 John Cale, Tony Conrad, Angus MacLise, La Monte Young and Marian Zazeela participated in a collaborative ensemble that articulated the big bang of minimalism. Utilizing long duration and precise pitch, they forged an aggressively mesmerizing dream music -- denying the activity of composition and elaborating shared ideas of performance and improvisation. However, the many rehearsal and performance recordings from this period were repressed, and remained inaccessibly buried until this moment. With the recent discovery of an additional cache of tapes, now restored and digitally remastered, the world can step Inside the Dream Syndicate for the very first time." - Table Of The Elements.[For information about LaMonte Youngs response to this release (which he did not authorize, and which he considers to be very poor in quality, with a missing segment of music, inaccurate sound mix, etc), please refer to: http://www.melafoundation.org/statemen.htm]

Artist: CHATHAM, RHYS
Title: Two Gongs (1971)
Format: CD
Label: Table Of The Elements
Country: USA
Price: $16.50
"The hour-long Two Gongs fills the entirety of [this] disc with its ethereal, droning psychedelia. While written in 1971, the 89 recording documented here features Chatham, along with fellow composer Yoshimase Wada coaxing heavy, overlapping tones out of a pair of Chinese gongs. The instruments buzz and hum, moving in waves from deafening rattles to soft, muted drones. The monstrous noise that Chatham concocts is far more akin to the seismic crashes of monstrously distorted guitar feedback than that of two unprocessed slabs of metal, and it proves the composers interest in creating a similar world of sound out of whatever instrument currently proved his muse. On disc, the performance is jaw-droppingly powerful, a monumental chunk of glorious noise." - Table Of The Elements.

Artist: COLLECTIONS OF COLONIES OF BEES
Title: Six Guitars
Format: LP
Label: Table of the Elements
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Their sound is expansive, vast, and billowing; full of ringing guitars, soaring in the best traditions of the Chatham/Branca standoff; meanwhile, beneath the clouds sprawl dewy meadows of gently rolling electronica. Six Guitars is just what its title states, yet so much more. Wildly versatile drummer Jon Mueller follows the rules by hammering on an electric guitar with mallets, enhancing the Steve Reichian vibe (compare this with Muellers face-melting solo onslaught Metals). The band sparkles accordingly, lifting to a dazzling climax. Its epic minimalism in exquisite registration, and the perfect selection to introduce the Table Of The Elements Guitar Series (fans will be happy to hear that Mueller is on deck with a solo contribution to the series as well). Beyond the music, theres the similarly spectacular packaging.

Title: Bryant Park Moratorium Rally (1969)
Format: CD
Label: Table Of The Elements
Country: USA
Price: $16.50
"An October afternoon in 1969. Midtown Manhattan. A rally in Bryant Park against the Vietnam War. Down 42nd Street towards Times Square, Tony Conrad is adjusting microphones in his 5th floor loft, one directed at the TV set -- where it will pick up live local news coverage -- the other pointing out the window, where the echo of speeches and crowd noise mingles with the oceanic rush of crosstown traffic. As the event is about to begin, he rolls tape. Thirty-four years later, we hear what he heard. And the juncture, for so many reasons, could not be more critical. As the Bush Administration pursues a risky military agenda in the Middle East -- one with unsettling long-term implications both at home and abroad -- we see a nation not divided, as in the Vietnam Era, but strangely complacent. Our media-saturated reality functions like a drug, instantly televised warfare a new entertainment, and organized public dissent a novelty at home and a roaring chorus everywhere else. Conrads recording of the Oct. 15 Vietnam Moratorium Rally is an eerie flashback that offers urgent new insights into our own lives and times, post-9/11 and full on into a new millennium." - Table Of The Elements.

"Its 1969, and Tony Conrad wants to take you Higher. Celebrated for the thrilling roar of his amplified violin, Conrad is a founding father of minimalism and a giant in the American soundscape. Now Conrads own Audio ArtKive imprint presents the first in a series of releases that reveal the wild breadth of his 40-year career, including field recordings, piano compositions, film soundtracks and more. Fantastic Glissando (1969) is a series of (d)evolving electronic compositions created with sine-wave oscillators. The instrumentation is different, but the effect is typical Conrad: soaring, aggressively textured and jet-engine massive.  This first-time CD release contains an extra ten-minute bonus track not included on the original LP version." - Table Of The Elements.

Title: Joan of Arc
Format: CD
Label: Table Of The Elements
Country: USA
Price: $16.50
"Tony Conrad is a founding father of minimalism and a giant in the American soundscape. The indefatigable Conrad kept busy during the Revolution Summer of 1968. In addition to his reunion recordings with John Cale (documented in the Cale set New York in the 1960s), Conrad starred in Ira Cohens legendary film The Invasion of Thunderbolt Pagoda and made extensive solo recordings, including Joan of Arc, available here for the first time. One of Conrads personal favorites, its a long piece for pump organ, in which he conjures both searing white heat and malignant gothic dread. An excerpt was used as the soundtrack for the Piero Heliczer film of the same name, but Conrad feels a greater affinity with that years Cohen film; accordingly, Cohen graciously provided restored stills from Thunderbolt Pagoda for the packaging of this release. Cohens sumptuous imagery - which Jimi Hendrix described as looking through butterfly wings - features a blissed-out and shirtless Conrad replete in pencil mustache, mascara and blood-red turban. The man is just downright cool - about as cool as Hendrix, and almost always louder." - Table Of The Elements.

Title: Outside The Dream Syndicate Alive

Price: $16.50
2005 release. "Minimalist pioneer Tony Conrad and notorious Krautrock progenitors Faust met just three times: in the studio to record the ground-breaking Outside the Dream Syndicate in 1972, and twice on the concert stage in the mid-1990s. This recording documents their third and final encounter, at Queen Elizabeth Hall, London, February 18, 1995. The difference between the original session and this live event is astonishing. While Conrads aggressive string sound was tamed in the studio by producer Uwe Nettlebeck (Conrad has complained that the mix made him sound like a hippy), here it is full of menace and ferocity, and in tandem attack with the equally belligerent violin of Jim ORourke, it conjures a raging wall of sound.." - Table Of The Elements.

"One of acoustic musics true innovators and eccentrics, John Fahey was a crucial figure in expanding the boundaries of the acoustic guitar. He drew from blues, Native American music, Indian ragas, experimental dissonance, and pop, and was the first to demonstrate that the finger-picking techniques of traditional country and blues steel-string guitar could be used to express a world of non-traditional musical ideas-harmonies and melodies more readily associated with Bartok, Charles Ives, or the music of India. Fahey played with a fierce imagination and versatility, and while his idiosyncrasy may have limited him to a cult following, it also ensured that his work continues to sound startlingly original." - Table Of The Elements.

Title: From the Dark (South Island)
Format: CD
Label: Table Of The Elements
Country: USA
Price: $16.50
"Multi-talented Alastair Galbraith is the glue that binds the New Zealand underground. His work ranges from achingly lyrical violin for artists as disparate as Peter Jefferies and the Bats, to the feedback squalls he conjures as member of A Handful Of Dust, to the otherworldly miniatures he crafts for his own solo albums. However, in recent years, Galbraith, along with American Matt De Gennaro, has developed another remarkable performance idiom, one that is positioned closer to the sounding sculpture of Harry Bertoia. In From the Dark (South Island), architectural idiosyncrasies are transformed into nuanced and hypnotic audio. Wires - some as long as 100 feet - are affixed throughout a building. When the wires are taught and stroked with rosined hands or a piece of leather, longitudinal vibrations are sent to the points of attachment, creating a natural resonator. It is not the wires that make the sound, but the wall, railing or window frames at their end; wire length and room acoustics determine the pitch. The result, achieved in a veil of total darkness, is a beautiful and eerie confluence of chance and accident, architecture and improvisation. As Galbraith himself puts it, There is some quite magical feeling of communion turning the lights off and making the building sing." - Table Of The Elements

Title: The Dew Line
Format: CD
Label: Table Of The Elements
Country: USA
Price: $16.50
"Twenty years is long enough: Its time to acknowledge Michael Morley as an indie-rock patriarch. And why not? As the guitarist and vocalist for New Zealand noise-trip trio The Dead C and the man behind Gate (ostensibly a solo project, although Sonic Youths Lee Ranaldo makes frequent guest appearances), Morley is the rare artist that record-hounds love to unearth: an isotope in the body Pop, radiating an invisible influence. With scores of micro-batch releases and an unmistakably intimate performance idiom, Morley ranks in the company of Jandek or Loren Connors, but its geographic isolation rather than social disengagement that has deflected his work from reaching more ears. Still, if you dont recognize his name, youve heard his reverberations, in the ambient post-rock of Flying Saucer Attack and Labraford, the neo-psychedelia of Bardo Pond, and the fidelity-challenged whorl of Pavement and Sebadoh. Recorded in 1993 and out of print since, Gates The Dew Line is the first part of his rock trilogy (followed by The Monolake in 1996 and The Wisher Table in 1999). Rock it does. Typical Gate/Dead C no-fi guitar subduction and Morleys locked-in-the-car-trunk vocals are prominent, but theres also a hefty amount of scraping synthesizer menace and paleozoic riffage. The crust of noise is there, but crack open the sonic geode and youll discover some nifty songstyling. In someone elses universe, the gem of an opening track, Millions, gets play on AM radio, while Have Not climbs the FM charts. Full of brooding atmospherics, The Dew Line is the most -- dare we say it -- accessible of any of Morleys records, and it stands on an equal footing with his Dead C high-water mark, Harsh 70s Reality, as an anti-rock rock classic." - Table Of The Elements.

Title: Ordier
Format: CD
Label: Table Of The Elements
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Though the era of punk was widely regarded as a time of extremes, legendary group Wire and guitarist BC Gilbert provided the most problematic, visionary and ironic response to the music scene of the mid-70s. The angular minimalism of their sound, the abstract, deadpan lyrics and a penchant for confrontation betrayed the art school origins and made Wire an idiosyncratic triumph. With bravery, integrity, absolute courage and energy -- and more ideas and concepts than any other musician of his era -- Gilbert continues to forge ahead. In his post-Wire work, he has utilized a variety of modernist tools and explored a vast range of experimental music, from electronic noise to ambient drones. Table of the Elements is now pleased to present the contemporaneous CD, Ordier . Recorded for the label in 1996 but subsequently believed lost, Ordier lets loose a wild swarm of electronics. As Gilbert writes: Im taking a very, very minimalist approach and really getting inside some of the sounds and chasing them to destruction.

""Peripatetic composer, performer, improviser, and designer Jon Mueller is a busy guy, and both the rock and experimental music scenes are the richer for it. As a drummer, he propels the ecstatic whorl of Collections of Colonies of Bees and the occasional guitar army of Rhys Chatham; alternately his solo project, Metals, is the most harrowingly intense percussive barrage youll ever encounter. He also finds time to collaborate with artists ranging from Wilcos Glenn Kotche to Swans Jarboe. Whether its minimalist bombast, free-improv interplay, or electro-acoustic finesse, Muellers got it covered. But what can he do with a guitar? In Strung, Mueller doesnt play the guitar; he scrambles its molecules. Laying down a photon-blast of sound, he initiates a relentless, rapid-pulse attack signal that summons wave upon wave of white noise.

"Pauline Oliveros life as a composer, performer and humanitarian is about opening her own and others sensibilities to the many facets of sound. Since the 1960s she has influenced American music profoundly through her work with improvisation, meditation, electronic music, myth and ritual. Many credit her with being the founder of present day meditative music. All of Oliveros work emphasizes musicianship, attention strategies, and improvisational skills. A Little Noise in the System is a triumphant electronic work from 1966, and the last of the 14 disks in the Table of the Elements 10th anniversary Lanthanides series. Pressed on clear vinyl and silk-screened in white ink." - Table Of Elements.

Price: $11.00
"Here is an extraordinary excavation from the buried history of the Downtown NYC scene: the unreleased, self-titled Transmission EP, recorded in 1981-82. Comprised of Jonathan Kane and Daniel Galliduani, the duo is one-half of the original version of the behemoth band Swans. Transmission both preceded and ran concurrent with the formation of Swans (Michael Gira was enough of a fan that he mixed Transmissions few live shows), and much of their material evolved into Swans tracks, including the standout Weakling. Unclassifiable within any conventional genre, it recalls the improvisation and complex, trance-inducing beats of North African music while adding a crust of no wave bluster and enough percussive artillery to sink a small island. Galliduani, whose saxophone is so heavily treated and processed that it sounds like a wall of guitars, lays down drones then adds weird, fierce, Eastern-tinged polyphonics; meanwhile Kane is a frenzied dervish, generating complex cross-tempos and rhythmic subdivision." - Table Of The Elements.

Label: Table of the Elements
Country: USA
Price: $16.50
"John Faheys death -- he is believed to have died in the explosion of a house during the filming of Michelangelo Antonionis Zabriskie Point in 1969 -- is shrouded in confusion and camouflage. His remains were never found, and the question remains: did Fahey purposely stage his own death for his own occlusive purposes? Faheys collusion of folk, blues, ethnic and modern classical methods, which suggests both the trickster and the shaman, has attracted a cult of musician followers over the years, ranging from the ridiculous to the sublime. But his unsolved disappearance inspired another cult, which worships Count Saint Germain, a Rosicrucian adept who is said to have never died and has assumed various identities over the centuries. Disciples of this sect, heard on this record, believe Fahey -- The Great Koonaklaster -- to be the most recent incarnation of Saint Germain. They view Faheys music as a synthesis of Saint Germains abilities as a classical composer and skills as an alchemist, and have absorbed his guitar style in order to pay homage to him. A variety of ritual services are contained within, and there is much to be gleaned from these Koonaklasterians offerings; whether or not you choose to accept this immortal motherf#cker of the 20th century as Saint Germain is up to you." - Table of the Elements.

Title: Festival
Format: CD
Label: Table of the Elements
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"For this recording, Scotsman Richard Youngs brings a mixture of emotive balladry and avant-garde sound collage to the fore. Guitar feedback and distorted synthesizer drones introduce the album, suggesting it may be tough going, especially given that their is a high-pitch tone that could shatter windows cutting through the mix. The largely instrumental album switches down a gear from the courageous experiments that see clock chimes, Casios, and electric guitars interweaved, and the drones give way to the lilting ballad "Sea Is Madness" -- which has a heartbreaking refrain that resonates with the same desperation as Robert Wyatt performing "At Last I Am Free." This closing track could easily bring one to tears if it werent so distractingly intricate with its minimalist phasing effects. Wondering if Youngs could top this monumental achievement, he subsequently explored this reduced song style further on the album Saphie and floored his fans with his ability to write heart-wrenching ballads as well as being a super-sonic noise architect. Festival is certainly a standout in his expansive catalog. Coming as it does on Table of the Elements, one could only expect a genre-defying exploration." - Sylvie Harrison, All Music Guide

Seizing Fate By The Throat is a distillation, the spirit of 15 years of spittle and brass vapors collected in this studio recording from March 14, 2010. Quietly tinkering with an array of metal, plastic and wooden objects, Beverlin draws the listener in only to reveal that he is unlocking the cage of a life-threatening animal. Suddenly: gnash, gurgle, grunt, the sounds of saliva smacking on hand-peeled lips. His performances overwhelm, frighten and suck the air out of the room, exorcising burden and frustration.

Together with bandmates Stuart Dempster and David Gamper, Oliveros and company churned up a vigorous storm at their January 2011 residency in Seattle, captured on this double vinyl release. With the help of staff at DXArts, the Deep Listening Band recorded impromptu downpours unhindered by technical issues, a peak in their collective creative output. Suddenly and unexpectedly, David Gamper died on September 27th, 2011. Needle Drop Jungle thus includes the brightest moments from what have sadly become the last recordings of this exceptional trio. Along with the simultaneously released Pauline Oliveros Primordial/Lift 2LP, this title completes a tetralogy of Oliveros releases on Taiga that started with the Deep Listening Band Then & Now and Timeless Pulse Trio 2LPs.

This vinyl-only document contains four side-long tracks, one reissued and three previously-unreleased. "Cannery Row" was originally available on the Troglodytes Delight (1990) album and captures the band in Tarpaper Cave, which Dempster recalls as "an old limestone quarry near Rosendale, New York that had lovely dripping water sounds and Valhalla-like mists."

"The elusive Eleh project resurfaces from the depths with another release on Taiga. Homage To The Sine Wave is the second release in their sound waves-based Homage To... series, following 2008s sold-out LP, Homage To The Square Wave. In a similar fashion, the elemental approach to the construction of the pieces on Sine Wave is influenced by Josef Albers, the German-born U.S.-based abstract painter and theorist best known for his color studies embodied in paintings of geometric abstraction. Both faces feature side-long compositions at just over 20 minutes each. Side A holds "Together We Are One," a piece that begins floating in the ether, but gently lands on a field of rhythmic bass pulses before dipping below the horizon. "Beneath The Silver Sun" on the B-side is a meditation on the nighttime, with a consistent delivery and subtle transformation that is dually tranquil and exhilarating. Volume reveals detail. Sine Wave was mastered by James Plotkin, cut direct to metal and pressed on 200 gram virgin vinyl in a hand-numbered edition of 500. The LP comes housed in a custom 2-color letterpressed jacket that was designed by John Brien of Important Records and printed by Studio On Fire in Minneapolis. The jackets were printed flat, die-cut, folded and glued, resulting in a letterpressed jacket with a printed spine. Eleh was formed to pay tribute to the pioneers of audio minimalism such as La Monte Young, Terry Riley, Eliane Radigue, Pauline Oliveros and Charlemagne Palestine. They use vintage modular gear to produce recordings of pure tone, pure sound, pure volume and pure analog. This is two-tone drone targeted towards absolute, meditative bliss." -Taiga

"In the summer of 2010 I had the chance to visit Antarctica under the invitation of the Argentine Antarctic Division. It was nothing short of breathtaking as I am sure anyone would suspect. Upon departing from Buenos Aires, the Hercules transport, under direction of the Argentine Military made a routine stop at the airbase outside Rio Gallegos. What was meant to be a few hours layover turned into several days, as winds there exceeded expectations and before long it was clear the transport could not take off. Adverse weather conditions along the Antarctic Peninsula also didnt help the departure. Whilst the scientists bunkered down in their quarters, I headed outside with my recorder. The wind in Patagonia is, well, breathtaking. Literally, there were moments where it was... difficult to catch breath. Across three days I recorded abandoned buildings, lone trees bent over in fields of tundra-like grasses, quivering road signs, wailing fences and other objects brought into relief with the wind. It wasnt comfortable, but the sounds, I hope, speak for themselves. The Antarctic recordings were made during two blizzards at Marambio and Esperanza bases. During the blizzard in Marambio, the temperature dropped to -40 degrees centigrade (with wind-chill) which made recording particularly challenging. The wind battered the bases structures and telecommunications equipment, making a range of unusual tonal phase drones, which you can hear in these recordings. The blizzard at Esperanza was mild by comparison, but still strong enough to coat penguins in layer of snow as they huddled together during the worst of the wind storm. Listening back to these recordings I am struck by the sheer physicality of the wind. Its rare that you feel physically reduced by the motion of air, but in both Patagonia and Antarctica that is just how I felt. A small speck of organic dust in a howling storm" --Lawrence English. English composed Viento from these field recordings, and it was cut direct to metal and pressed on 400 copies of 200-gram virgin vinyl for ultimate clarity.

Format: Double LP

Price: $34.00
"Wired Open Day 2009 is a vinyl-only release documenting live performances by Alan Lamb, Garry Bradbury, David Burraston, Oren Ambarchi and Robin Fox. Held outdoors during the evening of October 31st at The WIRED Lab, in rural South West, New South Wales, Australia, this 2LP is a document of the event; the result of an artist-in-residence program to explore the sonic possibilities of The Wires, landscape scale installations in rural NSW. The WIRED Lab is an artist-run initiative founded in 2007 to foster art/science collaborations in a rural environment. The initial focus of this project was to establish a site to preserve and expand on The Wires, a distinctly Australian invention that was pioneered by Australian artist Alan Lamb since the 1970s. Wiredlab.org notes that, "Lambs formal investigations of The Wires started in 1976 with his discovery of a 1km stretch of abandoned telegraph wires on a farm in the Great Southern region of Western Australia ... Lamb learnt to record them and later devised compositions with these recordings. When these telegraph lines eventually decayed, Lamb commenced building wire installations primarily for recording. Like the scale of the original telegraph wires, these purpose-built wire installations were not of a domestic scale, they too had a deep connection with nature and spanned 100s of meters across the rural landscape. Although principally functioning like a giant æolian harp, it is not only wind that plays The Wires, it seems that on their own accord The Wires often harmonically sing, vibrate or roar as they react to environmental factors, thereby creating a unique and infinite instrumentation of itself and its surrounds, in the words of David Burraston they are natures microphone." The four sides of Wired Open Day 2009 display the expansive range of the Wire installations built by The Wired Lab. Commencing at sunset, Garry Bradbury and Alan Lamb coax a gentle eco with acoustic recordings into deep and sonorous reverberations on side A. David Burraston and Alan Lamb focus on droplets of zaps and wire oscillations at twilight, with side B culminating in a downpour of crackling spray. At nightfall, Oren Ambarchi applies his mastery of condensed and layered tones on side C, with shuddering overtones, husky drones and rich clusters of sustain. Robin Fox concludes, in the dark, on side D, mashing off-kilter rhythms with a tumble of staccato bursts and fuzzy crunch. An edition of 500 double LPs in hand-numbered matte-varnished Stoughton tip-on gatefold jackets, Wired Open Day 2009 was mastered by James Plotkin, cut direct to metal and pressed on 200 gram virgin vinyl.

Title: Death Blues
Format: LP
Label: Taiga
Country: USA
Price: $23.00
"The six songs that comprise Jon Muellers Death Blues are each their own doorway to both a bold new musical statement from the renowned drummer/percussionist and an unprecedented journey into a conscious contemplation of death -- and the life that surrounds it. Released in tandem with a multi-part manifesto, Death Blues transcends its own existence as a 34-minute, earth-cracking rock album. Much like Mueller, whose landmark solo work stands alongside his role in notable bands Volcano Choir (and previously, Collections of Colonies of Bees), Death Blues embodies the acknowledgement that theres more to experiencing music than simply just listening. Conceived and largely executed in its recorded form by Mueller himself -- adding hammered acoustic guitar and bold vocal patterning to his ever-evolving mastery of percussion -- Death Blues is audibly (and intensely) personal. However, the very act of recording was the first step in a discourse that Mueller began over a year ago, forming a band of brilliant performers from his Milwaukee, WI hometown that would go on to perform Death Blues at Hopscotch Music Festival in Raleigh, NC and at two sold-out Death Blues events in Milwaukee, where a labyrinth led the audience into a multi-sensory and participatory experience culminating in a climactic performance of the album. It was as close as one could get to being next to Mueller at that moment of discovery: of the inevitability of death as the impetus to become more present in each moment and of the necessity of building his own path to sharing that idea. Death Blues is being collaboratively released by Taiga and Hometapes and is available as a limited edition LP packaged in a deluxe litho-wrapped jacket that includes the Death Blues manifesto; 500 hand-numbered copies of the highest fidelity pressed on 200 gram virgin vinyl." -Taiga.

Centered around a low frequency oscillator, the group swirls cello, voice, sampler, glass drones, e-guitar, violin and V accordion into a molten mass dropped from outer space. Along with the simultaneously released Deep Listening Band Needle Drop Jungle 2LP, this title completes a tetralogy of Oliveros releases on Taiga that started with the Deep Listening Band Then & Now and Timeless Pulse Trio 2LPs. Primordial/Lift was mastered by James Plotkin, cut direct to metal and pressed on 200 gram virgin vinyl in an edition of 500. It comes packaged in a double-wide jacket with the original scores printed in metallic ink and a flooded pocket. The jacket is encased in a custom slipcase, with gorgeous photographs by Michael S. Carlson from deep within the expansive Taiga forests southern edge." - Taiga.

Title: Knuckle Under
Format: LP
Label: Taiga
Country: USA
Price: $25.00
"Knuckle Under is Jessica Pavones first recording to be released on vinyl. Mastered by James Plotkin, cut direct to metal and pressed on 200 gram virgin vinyl in an edition of 300. The jacket was letterpress printed, diecut and hand-assembled at Studio on Fire in Minneapolis. "Violist Jessica Pavones Knuckle Under is the result of an exercise in mono focus, the result of a medically enforced hiatus from playing her primary instrument. She returned to the viola after a 21 month lay-off determined to play only the sounds she most wanted to hear. That turned out to be long tones, often played with such force that one imagines a puff of rosin rising from her strings as she bowed them. , But Not Here" gets through just three rustic sounding notes before a delay unit sprays one out like a prism. She repeats the phrase, and another note splits and gets trapped in an effects pedals hall of mirrors. The simplicity and sheer noisiness of the music feels remote from the scrupulous craftsmanship exhibited on her last solo record, Hope Dawson Is Missing, even though they share a tune. "Plutonium", the piece in common, reveals the flexibility that Pavone finds in folk material. On the Tzadik disc, it unfolds into a stately art song; here, mournful low tones turn as bushy as a wolfs winter coat under the influence of amplification. Pavone is, as ever, scrupulously focused, wringing everything she can from one piece of material before moving on." - Bill Meyer, The Wire magazine.

Price: $23.00
"Douglas Quin is a U.S. sound designer, naturalist, public radio commentator, educator, and music composer. For over 20 years Quin has traveled widely, documenting natural soundscapes -- from Antarctic ice to Arctic tundra and from African savannah to Amazon rainforest. His recordings of endangered and disappearing habitats represent one of the most unique and extensive collections anywhere. Quin recently created the sound design for and mixed Werner Herzogs Academy Award® nominated film, Encounters At the End of the World. He contributed to the sound design for Spore, a game from Maxis/Electronic Art, and has also worked on exhibits for the Smithsonian Institution National Museum of Natural History, American Museum of Natural History, and the Polish Academy of Sciences, among others. Quins Fathom brings together four extended underwater soundscapes -- two each from the Arctic and Antarctic. The recordings have been gathered over a period of 15 years, capturing an extraordinary palette of sonic voices, events, spaces, and textures. To the human ear, these soundscapes are haunting and otherworldly; yet they are very much of this world -- out of ear-reach. The tracks are minimally-edited and are his first field recordings to be archived on vinyl. Included with the release is a sealed envelope containing an insert with specific locations, animals, and other elements heard, giving listeners the option to absorb sound with or without association. The envelope is printed with liner notes and comments from Dutch journalist and music critic René van Peer. Mastered by James Plotkin, cut direct to metal and pressed on 200 gram virgin-vinyl, Fathom comes packaged in custom letter-pressed materials and is presented as a limited edition of 1,000 copies." -Taiga

Released in honor of the 20th annual Deep Listening Retreats held this year in Camallera, Spain and Petaluma, California, this is the third Timeless Pulse album. Formed in 1991 during a residency at the Deep Listening Institute, the full ensemble, including Thomas Buckner and David Wessel, has released two live recordings on CD: Live At CNMAT and Quintet.

"The sound world within which Timeless Pulse Trio prefers to work: sustained sounds like Paulines accordion drones, gongs, bowed cymbals, ornamented by rattles, bells and the cracks and pops of the drum set and struck resonant objects ... These recordings emanate from a culture of active listening, as promoted and practiced by this trio, as well as by many other ensemble-based improvisers and meditative musical practices around the globe. The heart of free improvisation rests in the act of listening, and in the discovery inherent to that process." - Amy Beal.

Title: Space Elements Vol. 1
Format: LP
Label: Taiga
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"This is the third in Rafael Torals Space Program series of releases -- his long-term research project launched in 2004, through which he has unearthed an innovative approach and a complete re-thinking of how electronic music is conceived and experienced. Using custom experimental instruments, Toral performs electronic music concerned with "phrasing and swing" and performing strange melodies with physicality, movement and gesture in flux. The result is something youre unlikely to have heard before, a kind of alien electronic jazz. After the acclaimed, orchestral Space and the follow-up Space Solo 1, this is the first volume of the Space Elements series, each release being focused on one kind of instrument, on small settings and including collaborations. Space Elements Vol. I features Rute Praça (cello), Margarida Garcia (electric double-bass), Sei Miguels amazing percussionist César Burago, and David Toop (flute), besides a short appearance by Sei Miguel himself. From Torals liner notes: "Having found that jazz is the field of musical knowledge where disciplined decision-making is most developed, this music is more informed by jazz than by any other. The Space Program emphasizes articulating silence and sound, by structuring musical discourse on experimental instruments with a simple and clear sonic identity. To my surprise, I found no historical precedents to this practice, being that it draws practically no information from electronic music history (which is grounded on different thinking patterns), and it draws very little from jazz history as well, since the instruments I use are inadequate to play any music based on the Western system. I regard this approach to jazz (meaning a system of individual decision-making from the standpoint of free-spectrum live electronics) as a new and exciting field of creative possibilities. I called it post-free jazz electronic music." Space Elements Vol. I was mastered direct to metal and pressed on clear 200 gram virgin vinyl in a limited edition of 500 copies. The jacket was designed by Helder Luís at No Type and features a collage by contemporary artist João Paulo Feliciano. CD version forthcoming on Staubgold." - Taiga

Title: Space Elements Vol. II
Format: LP
Label: Taiga
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Space Elements Vol. II is the fourth release in Rafael Torals ongoing project, the Space Program. Following the first Elements release, this volume features a new set of collaborators: Evan Parker (soprano sax), Manuel Mota (guitar), Afonso Simões (drums), Stefano Tedesco (vibraphone), João Paulo Feliciano (Rhodes piano), and Ruben Costa (digital synthesizer), as well as returning guests Sei Miguel (trumpet), César Burago (percussion), Fala Mariam (trombone), and Rute Praça (cello). Space Elements Vol. II displays a melodic quality that, along with a refined management of silence, marks a new area and consolidates the Space Programs complex network. Its spaciousness is explained in Torals liner notes: "While finding ways to make decisions on sound emission, it became evident to me that such sounds should have a reason to exist, they should be essential and necessary." Dan Warburtons writing in The Wire about Space fits Space Elements Vol. II perfectly: "The melodic logic that drives certain instruments within Space also recalls birdsong, with dense, convoluted runs of twittering melody ending in single piping notes, as spontaneous as Messiaens birdsong transcriptions were painstaking and meticulous." Torals music is a jazz-inspired re-evaluation of live electronics: "Despite working in a sound world that is cosmetically closer to R2D2s vocabulary than Louis Armstrongs or John Coltranes, Toral has claimed a kinship to jazz because it models instant music making within a disciplined framework." (Bill Meyer, Dusted); "Toral is looking for nothing less than a totally fresh language to work in" (The Wire). Space Elements Vol. II was mastered direct to metal from 24-bit files and pressed on clear 200 gram virgin-vinyl. With design by Helder Luis at NOTYPE, the LP features a collage by João Paulo Feliciano. Presented in a limited edition of 500." - Taiga.

Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: TAL
Country: Germany
Price: $16.00
"TAL present a reissue of Non Bands self-titled debut release, originally released in 1982 on Telegraphy Records. Yuichi Jibiky of Telegraph Records describes the release: "The Japanese punk rock movement known as Tokyo rockers began in the summer of 1978. It incubated an independent music culture as well as a host of fascinating, individualistic musicians. One of the more striking units was the male-female duo Maria 023. Non played bass for them, and it was here that she first attracted attention. However, Maria 023 was short-lived, and Non would not reappear until the following year, August 1979, on stage at the legendary concert event Drive to 80s. Her unbilled performance at the event consisted of several songs for solo bass and vocals, and her combination of intensity and a distinctly female emotionality made a striking impression. In the months that followed, Non continued to play solo and she became a pivotal presence among the female rockers on the scene at the time. Finally, she shifted from solo to group performance, and formed Non Band. After several member changes, the line-up stabilized into a unique trio with Kinosuke Yamagishi on violin and clarinet and Mitsuru Tamagaki on drums. . . . In February 1982 Non Bands first album was released as a 10-inch LP on Telegraph Records, the labels fifth release. In the early Japanese indies scene, if a release sold 1000 copies it was counted as a significant success. The Non Band album went through several repressing and sold 2000 copies. . . . Just six months after the release of the album the group would grind to a halt. Members quit the band one after another, and with no possible replacements to be found, Non herself faded away from the scene. . . . [Non] invited two fabulous musicians, Keiji Haino and Tatsuya Yoshida, to Hirosaki, and performed together with them as well as solo. This marked the beginning of a new phase for her, and she played live in Tokyo and released a solo album, ie (2002). She got back in touch with Yamagishi and Tamagaki and reformed Non Band. . . . In 2012, the group released an album of recent live performances entitled Non Band Liven 2009-2012." Includes insert with liner notes; Includes download code." - TAL.

"Remastered deluxe 2007 release. Achim Reichels A.R. & Machines genius German Krautrock/space-rock project Die Grüne Reise - The Green Journey finds new life. Originally issued by Polydor in Germany in 1971, Reichel played all the instruments here, and produced the entire thing himself in partnership with Frank Dostal, who also penned the English lyrics and had previously done time with Reichel in the popular West German beatgruppe, The Rattles. The Green Journey is a masterpiece of doubly/triply-tracked, tape-machined, echo-plexed and looped space-guitar-madness, with a host of skronk, thunderous percussion, tribal whoops, and head-busting, three-dimensional, lysergic lyrics. As the artist himself proclaimed, "I was just trying something out with my guitar, when out of the blue, the Akai X-3300 began to repeat endless cascades of guitar echoes. My guitar suddenly sounded like ten." Initially, The Green Voyage was intended as "a soundtrack for an imaginary movie," and this has now been achieved by some 60 students of the Lippe and Höxters University of Applied Sciences, who, over the course of two terms produced a 42-minute video for the ten album tracks. Theres also a 10-minute "making of" film as well. Housed in a 6-panel, tri-fold dexluxe digipack with liner notes in German and English written by Jörg Gülden." - Tangram.

Title: A Hidden Life
Format: Cass
Label: Tanuki
Country: Belgium
Price: $8.00
Edition of 50 copies. "This seems quite a coup by Brussels based Tanuki Records: a ninety-minute tape by Simon Wickham-Smith, known as a solo musician but also a regular collaborator of Richard Youngs. That is one coup, but the title piece, which spans the whole first side, also contains the voice of the well-known composer Robert Ashley. A Hidden Life deals with the life of Tshangyang Gyasto, the sixth Dalai Lama, who died in 1706. Wickham-Smith translated a book on Gyasto and had texts recited by Ashley and Laetitia Sonami, and some sung by Joan Stango. He himself provided the electronic background of repeating electronic sounds. The music seems to be coming without any changes and the emphasis lies on the text and the occasional song. This is all first class radio play stuff. Sit back and listen to the story, or perhaps just sit back and contemplate and listen to this as a piece of Zen sound art. Four instrumental pieces are to be found on the other side of Wickham-Smiths electronic music, and here to we find some of that meditative spirit. Whereas on A Hidden Life, it boils in the background, here its out in the open and it moves between certain parameters, set out on whatever type of equipment he is using. Its like a perpetum mobile: once set in motion it moves around, freely, as wind-chime, but within certain boundaries. In Laude this is pretty much a living organism, full of spirit, but in the other three pieces it seems to me its all a bit darker, more calm and subdued, perhaps also spookier? Especially Cellules seemed to posses some otherworldly spirits and ghosts captured on magnetic tape. Excellent release!" - Vital Weekly.

A leading figure in the worldwide experimental music community since the early 90s, Simon Wickham-Smith adds to his sizable body of work with this masterpiece. Three tracks clocking in at almost 60 minutes, Simon s new work is the result of years spent honing his craft. His influences are drawn from sources far and wide, but the music that results is uniquely his own. Transcending genre altogether but most clearly informed by minimalism, this release is hypnotic, mysterious, and gorgeous. If you ve followed the arc of his career, you ll be pleased to see how mature and powerfully focused his musical vision has become. If you re new to his world, it s an excellent introduction. To say that it s an honor for us to be releasing his music would be a massive understatement. A true classic." - Tape Drift

In the early 1980s in the proud city of Hamburg, Germany, two bands fused together in grade school. One band had the atypical name Junge Rümpfe, the other band had a somewhat old-fashioned name, Freddie & The Ready Teddies. At the time, the band played ska music, and therefore named themselves Skafighter. Original founders Timo Blunck and Detlef Diederichsen were joined by Bluncks sister Rica and their friend Christian Kellersmann. They played at parties and school festivals. Alfred Hilsberg, a well-respected Hamburger and founder of German new wave was at one of the parties, and was so impressed by Skafighter that he offered them a deal on his label ZickZack. Between studio time and their first album release, Skafighter changed their name to Ede & Die Zimmermänner, a name coined after the journalist Eduard Zimmermann who moderated the television show, True Crime. Eventually Rica Blunck left the band (she was the "Ede"), so the group shortened the name to Die Zimmermänner. Under the name Die Zimmermänner, they released 80s classics, such as the albums 1001 Wege Sex zu machen ohne daran Spaß zu haben, Goethe and the EP Zurück in der Zirkulation. To document the long history of Die Zimmermänner, Tapete is proud to release a limited box set that includes the albums 1001 Wege... and Goethe, singles and EPs, as well as previously-unreleased demo and live recordings. Also contains five (German-language) booklets with photos and essays by Timo Blunck, Detlef Diederichsen, Tom Holert, Eckhart Nickel, Jürgen Teipel, Oliver Tepel and Helmut Ziegler. Limited to 500 copies worldwide." - Tapete.

Title: Cosmonaut
Format: LP + CD
Label: Tapete
Country: Germany
Price: $24.00
LP version. Includes CD." At the end of the 70s, The Monochrome Set were part of the first wave of "post-punk" bands. Right from the beginning, the band earned a solid reputation as purveyors of fine pop, gaining praise from 80s contemporaries such as Morrissey and Edwyn Collins. In later years, this praise has continued with artists such as Franz Ferdinand, The Divine Comedy and Graham Coxon, all citing the band as a key influence on their own work. The Monochrome Set sound has often been described as "timeless", and that alone explains why, over the years, the band has continued gaining admirers. The Monochrome Set is black & white, at the same time, with no grey. Thats what the name always meant - delivering mirth and melancholy, pleasure and panic, delight and dread, wrapped up in tuneful pop songs with curious lyrics. The band seem to occupy a parallel universe, with a rich panoply of sounds and words, all somehow evocative of something just beyond reach or remembrance - yet the songs have an immediate simplicity and power. Cosmonaut, the bands 13th album, is a perfect example of this exhilarating mix. The title track opens with a Theremin cyber fly buzzing towards your skull before the song hits, launching you into a mirror dimension that is both familiar and alien. The whole album is a trip that starts with a hallucinating cash-till lady, then travels through dream-sets involving cannibalism, disaffected squirrels, strange gods, dying sweethearts, sexual depravity, Alzheimers, backward evolution, and ends in an operating theatre, amid a sea of medical tentacles. In short, a camping holiday. The trademark Monochrome Set guitar is ever-present, but this time complemented by delightfully busy keyboards, which give an added richness and spice to the album. In just 30 minutes, Cosmonaut catapults the listener into orbit and takes them on a zany, hallucinogenic joyride - not in outer space as it turns out, but in and around the arcane and fantastical recesses of Bids imagination. Cosmonaut comes with minimal risk of explosion, persistent floatiness and no disappointing space food." - Tapete.

Title: Spaces Everywhere
Format: LP + CD
Label: Tapete
Country: Germany
Price: $27.00
Includes CD. "On one hand, the music is very melodic and cheerful. The lyrics, however, deal with death, decay, change... no wonder we are rather popular with the undead," says singer, guitarist, and songwriter Bid of Spaces Everywhere, The Monochrome Sets twelfth studio album. A very particular humor. And a unique sound: although this time banjos, Hammond organ, female backing vocals, and even flutes can be heard, experts and laymen alike will recognize: this is The Monochrome Set. Undistorted, nervous guitars, like the soundtrack to a French new wave film... but one starring Michael Caine, Louis de Funès, and Jean-Paul Belmondo and directed by Andy Warhol. Peculiarly timeless, it is a sound that cannot be categorized. Although rooted in the 1950s and 60s (the guitar sound, for example, is a hybrid of Duane Eddys and Sterling Morrisons), it still feels oddly modern. Then there is Bids voice, which this time is more reminiscent of the great American crooners than of Lou Reed. Bid wrote most of the songs in May and June of 2014, and the band recorded them in Brixton, London. Perhaps the bands popularity among the undead will diminish upon hearing the springtime air that can thus be detected in this music. While music historians and critics continue to grapple with the baffling reasons for this bands lack of mainstream success, the in-crowd has always known what they have in The Monochrome Set. Time and again, the story is repeated: Johnny Marr found a single by the band in Morrisseys record collection and decided it might not be a bad idea to start a band with the somewhat eccentric singer. The influence of The Monochrome Set on bands like Felt, Franz Ferdinand, Belle and Sebastian, and The Strokes can hardly be ignored. In early 80s Germany, the band heavily influenced one band in particular, Die Zimmermänner. And like every band that has borrowed more or less from Bid, Lester Square, Andy Warren, and Steve Brummell, they happen to be pretty good. So its fitting that Timo Blunck of Die Zimmermänner was the one to mix Spaces Everywhere in Hamburg. The Monochrome Set present an album that will become a modern classic like Eligible Bachelors and "Strange Boutique." And where is the best place to listen to the album? Bid: "In a deconsecrated church, without a mirror." There he goes again." - Tapete.

The range of styles on display here is typical of this iconic and highly influential band -- slices of their sound can still be heard in indie and mainstream music worldwide.” - Tapete.

Country: Germany
Price: $24.00
180 gram vinyl. Includes CD. Edition of 500. "Tapete present a reissue of Slapp Happys Acnalbasac Noom, originally released in 1980. Left-wing intellectual film critic Uwe Nettelbeck, who had good connections to Polydor, had set up his own studio in rural Wümme, disrupting the mainstream with pioneering sounds by the likes of Faust, inventively engineered by the "boffins boffin", Kurt Graupner. By the time Anthony Moore, one of Nettelbecks charges, approached his third album in 1972, Polydors accounting department was fast losing patience with all that experimentalism. So Nettelbeck suggested to Moore that he might write some straight songs (relatively speaking), which in turn prompted Moore to invite his old school friend Peter Blegvad over to Hamburg to form the band Slapp Happy. Dagmar Krause, a young singer from Hamburg and Moores girlfriend, joined them both on their trip to Wümme to record what was to become Sort Of (TR 355CD/LP), using Faust as a backing band. A second album emerged, eschewing, even more clearly than the Sort Of, the heavy rock idioms of the era for an anti-macho playfulness that presaged the sparseness of post punk and the dry jangle of early indie. Nonetheless, Polydor pulled the plug, and Uwe Nettelbeck signed Faust and Slapp Happy over to Richard Bransons nascent Virgin imprint. At the Manor, they would rerecord their second album with UK musicians, bells and whistles for a 1974 release as Slapp Happy, burying the original version in the vaults not to reemerge until 1980 as Acnalbasac Noom. After being asked which version they prefer today, the band does not take long to choose: "For the more direct approach it would have to be Acnalbasac Noom. It had a naïve spontaneity to it. Naïve in the nicest sense of the word." - Tapete.

"9 LPs, 5 CDs, a DVD and a 144-page full-color coffee table book. "For a collection of music built around the poignant inevitability of decay, there has been a great many hopeful and inspired words devoted to William Basinskis The Disintegration Loops: stunning, ethereal, majestic, transfixing, life-affirming... and for good reason. From its 20-year gestation period to its infamously fateful completion, The Disintegration Loops is one of the most powerful manifestations of the inevitable cycle of life ever committed to tape, even as it documents the inevitable decay of all that is committed to tape. The very passage of time is its most effective instrument. To mark the 10-year anniversary of its original release -- and its forthcoming induction into the 9/11 Memorial Museum this year -- Temporary Residence Ltd. is honored to collaborate with William Basinski in presenting The Disintegration Loops in a fashion truly befitting a library of music with such a lasting legacy. This massive limited-edition box set contains all four historic volumes, plus a pair of stunning live orchestral performances from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the 54th Venice Biennale, both previously unreleased. Remastered from the original recordings and pressed onto 100% virgin vinyl for the first and only time, this exquisite box set also includes all of the remastered recordings on 5 CDs, the extremely rare 63-minute The Disintegration Loops film on DVD, and a 144-page full-color coffee table book featuring rare photos taken during the making of The Disintegration Loops, and liner notes by Basinski, Antony, David Tibet of Current 93, Ronen Givony of the Wordless Music Series, and Michael Shulan, Creative Director of the National September 11 Memorial Museum." - Temporary Residence Ltd.

Price: $25.00
"Trippy new musical projects by Raymond Pettibon are a cause for great excitement around here. His cryptic lyrics are a kind of sound poetry: cliches and truisms are deformed, devolved and reconnected in oddly intuitive ways, leaving literal meaning to wallow in the dust of free association and lolling wordplay. The squeezebox-led folkies behind him play it sympathetic and warm, but are ultimately secondary to Ray’s very personal verbage. Anyone following this man’s musical development will note this is as fucked up and peculiar as his work with SUPER SESSION, SUR DRONE, and more recently with THE UNKNOWN INSTRUCTORS. Oh and the color LP cover is a beautiful mystery to behold."

“Yves Bouliane Studied double-bass with Roland Desjardins at the Montreal Conservatory in the early 1970s. Not yet twenty, he HAD beens improvising with Robert Lepage since 1969. Together, They Formed the Expandable Trio, a group Evolved That Continuously in the early portion of the decade (Roger Boudreau, Vincent Dionne and Improvisers --other Reviews another one succeeded During The Few years que la Lasted project). In 1973 the two musicians met Raymond Gervais and Michel Di Torre with Whom They founded Montreals Experimental Music Workshop (Experimental Music Workshop). These initiatives paralleled Those of the free jazz of Quebec - a free jazz ensemble, qui Bouliane joined for a short period of time in 1972-1973. Then he continued experimenting with sound through performances at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and Art Vehicle, one of Canadas first artist-run galleries. In 1977, Bouliane Composed "field (10 interventions)" and "field (10 operations)." Together SuperMusique will soon be releasing Their interpretation of the first of These two experimental works. The lathing is a work for cello solo. Performed and Recorded by Bouliane in 1977 "Field (10 operation)" was released at the time was 10 copies limited edition cassette tape. From double-bass to cello, Bouliane Then turned to painting. He completed a Masters degree in Visual Arts in the 1980s, he aims About did so without Abandoning music. With John Heward, he released Mass 1/3 control in 1985 - double bass and drums duo, qui Gervais Describes as "ephemeral yet eternal music."
This new release Tenzier revisits Boulianes late 1970s solo explorations. "Champ (10 operations)" is available here for the first time were limited edition 180 gr. vinyl record. Both the music and the artwork are by Bouliane.” - Tenzier. Edition of 300.

”The two LP [TNZR054] sides total just over thirty minutes, providing a complex web of multithreaded intensity, a whirlwind of sound continuously unfolding at a frenetic pace. All available digits are hectically engaged in striking, sawing, and pounding every surface of the instrument simultaneously. Lines of choked notes interweave with a bombardment of percussive textures, and together with the low cello tones create the illusion of an improvised noise trio. On the cassette [LDE054], Alexandre St-Onge and Jean-Sébastien Truchy appropriately employ the same extended techniques while adding their own twists. St-Onge somehow manages to be even more intense, thumping away on his bass in an all-out assault. Truchy is more relaxed only by comparison, alternating bristly sections with quieter moments that overlay distinct strands in orchestral fashion. Overall, this is a coherent package that rediscovers the past while demonstrating a robust continuation of Quebecs tradition of improvised music.” – Lawrence Joseph (MusicWorks).

"Born in 1953, Bernard Gagnon is a product of Quebecs late 1960s underground music scene. In 1973, the Montreal-based musician turned to music theory, studied with Iannis Xenakis and met John Cage. That year, his band Mergélèpe-Guorismogue joined Montreals Atelier de musique expérimentale (AME), an organization created by Raymond Gervais, Michel Di Torre, Yves Bouliane and Robert M. Lepage to promote improvised music. Two years later, Gagnon began experimenting with electronic sounds as a member of Kevin Austins MetaMusic. At the turn of the decade, he studied under alcides lanza, Mariano Etkin and Paul Pedersen. It is then that he composed and recorded his first electroacoustic pieces using the electronic music studio at Mcgill University. In 1981, he was awarded both the CAPAC Hugh Le Caine Award and Radio-Canadas Prix national de composition électro-acoustique. Gagnon then joined Cham Pang, a multimedia electro collective, and reconnected with Lepage with whom he recorded and performed. The 1980s saw Gagnon turn to musique actuelle explorations which culminated with groups such as Stylo (with Lepage and Jean Derome) and La Flore Laurentienne (Lepage, Derome and Guillaume Dostaler among others). Tenzier is proud to announce the release of an album dedicated to Bernard Gagnons electronic music (1975-1983)." - Tenzier.

"Formed in 1967, the Quatuor de jazz libre du Québec (QJLQ) was a force to be reckoned with in post-Quiet Revolution Quebec. Between 1967 and 1970, the QJLQ shared the stage with artists such as Louise Forestier, Robert Charlebois and l’Infonie. It promoted improvised music as a means of bringing about real social and cultural changes in Quebec. In 1970, the QJLQ established a colonie artistique in Val-David. It also acquired land – the Petit Québec Libre – in an effort to offer artists and political activists a communal place to exchange ideas. From 1970 onward, Quebec’s first free jazz ensemble turned to contemporary avant-garde music for further inspiration. As the decade unfolded, the QJLQ became more radical both musically and politically. Tenzier’s new release constitutes a rare opportunity to hear the quartet at its most potent. This session was recorded at Radio-Canada’s Studio 13 on 13 May, 1973." -Tenzier

"Etienne OLearys filmography consists essentially of three experimental films completed in Paris between 1966 and 1968. Day Tripper, Homeo (aka Homeo: Minor Death: Coming Back from Going Home) and Chromo Sud constitute a cinema of resistance. These brutally personal and subversive films form a body of work with few precedents. OLearys contribution to French underground cinema is not, however, limited to the introduction of a new cinematographic language. The potency of his oeuvre resides in three unsettlingly evocative soundtracks composed by the director himself. This music is now available on vinyl for the very first time (180 gr LP 300 copies)." - Tenzier.

"Tequila Sunrise Records is proud to release the first recordings by Meg Baird under her own name. Meg has been singing and performing since she was a kid with her sister Laura as a charter member of thse traditional folk duo the Baird Sisters, though she is currently best known as one of the "female larynxes" of the communal Philadelphia band Espers. Or we should say, best known as the siren-voiced singer for same. Or, perhaps, we could let Nick Carraway describe the quality of her voice for us: The exhilarating ripple of her voice was a wild tonic in the rain. I had to follow the sound of it for a moment, up and down, with my ear alone before any words came through. We asked Meg to record something with a country-waltz flavor, and she courteously obliged us with a graceful and bittersweet cover of Waltze of the Tennis Players by the under-appreciated 60s folksters Fraser and Debolt. The mushrooms are growing in every new boot print, my, my, my. For the B-side, she recorded an alternate version of "Dear Companion", a track from her forthcoming LP. Its an ancient melody, an aching lament sung "in the style of the chapel", with Meg whisper-singing right into your ear, or maybe just to herself as she folds the laundry and does the dishes. You can see things more clearly when you shut your eyes. So here is a taste from the Meg Baird solo LP (due Christmas 2006), enough to wet your whistle and whet your appetite. You will want to hear more." - Tequila Sunrise.

Price: $23.00
"The Hill of Crosses in Siauliai, Lithuania (56°0055N 23°2500E) is one of the most demented folk-art installations on the planet, a thicket of 100,000+ crosses, crucifixes, graven images, minor effigies, rosaries and other pilgrim-offerings dating back almost 200 years and maybe longer. It is a monument to accretion, to the endless addition of one more thing. It has its parallels in the votive-stuffed caves of Arkalochori (35° 8 0.76"N, 25° 15 26.94"E) and Psychro (35.1628055°N 25.4448972°E), as well as the Buddha-stuffed caves of Mogao (40°0217.98N 94°4815.28E), Bezeklik (42° 57 22 N, 89° 32 41 E), and Pak Ou (20.0489°N 102.2101°E). At this Hill of Crosses, one rubs up against what Aliferis has called das Überwältigensein (“the overwhelm”) in one of its many forms. In the past, human encounters with the overwhelm were always described in religious terms: a glimpse into the abyss that staggers human speech, and our need to fill that void with a force that eclipses human measure; that is to say, God. But in 2012, our horror vacui has replaced God with ourselves, and the overwhelm we face is a socially constructed one, of endless surveillance and information-gathering, where everywhere is the same and anywhere is nowhere, and where the principle of too-muchness prevails unceasingly: “Labour unparallelld! a wondrous rocky World of cruel destiny / Rocks piled on rocks reaching the stars; stretching from pole to pole.”

Clearly we have lost our bearings. Clearly the need is for something on a smaller scale. Clearly we must reclaim the void. To that end, Fire Museum (39.955117°N 75.161240°W) and Tequila Sunrise Records (39.969203°N 75.14505°W) present this gathering of guitar-driven emanations, the first side leafy, lyrical and acoustic, the second side an astringent application of electric gnarl. “Circle of Crosses” brings together folk pythia Dora Bleu (guitar and vocal) with psych-improv wizards Sam Shalabi and Tom Carter (guitars and other instruments). It links Tripoli (32°548N 13°119E) to Washington D.C (38°5342.4N 77°0212.0W) and Houston (29°4546N 95°2259W), not to mention Mile End (45°3130N 73°3500W) to Louvain-la-Neuve (50° 40 4 N, 4° 36 42 E). Consider these songs map coordinates for safe-houses from das Überwältigensein, a set of precise locales for ecstasy, atheist shrines, or open spaces for reverie in the forgotten recesses of the planetary connectome.

"Heart Land hail from New Hope, PA. Its a liminal place, halfway between everything, where all the lines blur and where things arent always what they seem. I remember one autumn evening a quarter-century ago, when New Hope first got under my skin. In that twilight moment, legendary psychedelic LP collector Veronica Breth (then still known as Gregg) let me in on her little secret: Its better to sell 100 records at $150.00 apiece, she whispered in her kiss-of-the-spider-woman purr, than it is to sell 1000 records at $15.00 each... I dont know if it was the ginseng wine, or the unbearable straightness of her long blonde hair, or the way s/he French-inhaled her clove cigarette, but the whole conversation made me a little light-headed. At that time, the notion struck me as elitist to the point of vampirism, but Ill be goddamned if her words arent truer now than when s/he uttered them. What with the internet both hipping everybody to everything and making it all available at any time, rarity itself is as rare as a day in June (as they say). Which brings me back to Heart Lands self-titled LP on Tequila Sunrise Records, one in a series of on-going collaborative co-releases, this one with Cream of Turner Records. Its a limited edition of 200, all with hand-made library-binder style covers, and very sharp-looking indeed. But not only is every sleeve different and unique, but every record is different, too -- at least, thats how it sounds! What do I know? Every time I play it, it sounds different. Seriously. All I know is that the guys from Heart Land burrowed into the outside-psychedelic-trance-noise-improv badger-hole like a dachshund (albeit one with an un-German sense of humor) and came back with a mash-up of every track on the NWW want-list plus a few imaginary tracks mixed in (only it turns out none were really imaginary after all, if you get my drift). Are these songs 30 seconds long, or are they whole sides? Are they soundtracks for unseen cinema? Who can say? I cannot answer these questions, I can only raise them. Heart Lands inspired throb is a true rarity, sand thrown into the gears of the reality studio machine, and you dont have to be a Swiss collector to afford it. Yet. Listen, wonder, and ride a white dove, luv!" -Carlos Ramirez, San Tanco, Puerto Rico

Title: Empty Rubious Red
Format: LP
Label: Tequila Sunrise
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"...originally released in 2006 on their own white elephant imprint (a longer version of empty rubious red was reissued later that year as a limited edition cd on the incredible archive label), both versions sold out in about a minute. Its actually more like a solo outing by lsdm front-man shinsuke michishita (on voice, guitar, bass and percussion), accompanied on two tracks by legendary drummer ikuro takahashi (high rise, fushitsusha, tamio shiraishi, kosokuya, che-shizu, maher shalal hash baz, nagisa ni te, etc). most of the songs here are intimate, in-your-inner-ear ballads, hypnagogic and melancholic, achy hangovers from the third velvets LP ⿿ sorrowful birds on the last tree in the universe, thinking themselves into being, then forgetting themselves, then remembering again. except for the title track, that is ⿿ an 8-minute doppler-effect trance that gets you wasted on polonium 210, sets the dials of the kabbalah for the heart of the sun, and clicks "send." we could describe the overall sound here as late night psych. Its a pretty hackneyed term at this point, but try to remember how it used to be a downright poetic handle for the genre, conjuring those sleepless hours between 3 and 5 a.m. when the acid-drenched mind emits showers of sparks into the abyss. Light fuse and get away! we dont know what sorts of childrens clothing well see when trend analysts start recommending late night psych as the compass for designers, but its bound to be interesting. just remember, when you see saucer-eyed tots on the deck of a starship with their heads plugged into andromeda, you heard it here first. *european manufactured 180 gram lp housed in a stoughton old-style sleeve with j-card style obi." - Tequila Sunrise.

"Marco Panellas layered guitar landscapes mix American primitive acoustica with Nashville telecasters, dissonant jazz and straight rock. On Eastern Landscapes, eight self-assured but tonally unpredictable songs serve as the base for studio overdubs and guitar textures. Written and recorded over two years (2008-2010), the songs on Eastern Landscapes draw from the wells of British and American folk forms, classic rock, and even modal jazz to create a sound thats deeply rooted, satisfying, and somewhat elusive." - Tequila Sunrise.

Title: Dr. Ragtime And His Pals
Format: LP
Label: Tequila Sunrise
Country: USA
Price: $21.00
"LP version. Limited edition of 960. Domestically-pressed vinyl, housed in a European manufactured hard board inner-sleeve slipped inside a matte board jacket with j-card style obi. Jack Roses lastest full length, Dr. Ragtime And His Pals was originally issued on CD by Tequila Sunrise in April 2008. "The Appalachian Trail runs 2175 miles south from Mount Katahdin in Maine to Springer Mountain in Georgia, though there are those who want to stretch it further, into Alabama, because the mountains go there. Why not extend it? Trails are made for that. But theres another Appalachian Trail, too -- one that goes through time, extending from unfinished studios in Williamsburg, NY, winding down the grooves of ancient 78s to the 1920s or even earlier, past Stephen Fosters wet dream to a place beyond the compass of change. If youre hiking on *that* trail, youre likely to run into a lot of post-grad Parsifals with inscrutable hair and de-tuned banjos -- these days, you cant swing a cat around without hitting one! But if youre lucky, you might stumble across a clearing somewhere south of Lily Dale, where revolutionists stop for orangeade and Dr. Ragtime hangs out with his pals. If you ask him politely, he might offer you a taste of his elixir -- made from codeine, sarsaparilla, and goat-gland extract -- guaranteed to restore memories that never were. And if youre quiet, he might let you stay and listen to the music: Ethiopian novelties, characteristic marches and parlor favorites -- bittersweet slices of Methodist pie, familiar tunes, at least in those sections where the square dance has not yet been supplanted by the fox-trot. And if you have a couple of dimes to rub together in your pocket, youll want to purchase his newest, electrically-recorded phonograph recording, entitled Doctor Ragtime And His Pals. The Doctor, who hitherto has recorded only on his own, is joined here by Micah Blue Smaldone (who has been compared to both Tiny Tim and Kierkegaard), Glenn Jones (of Cul de Sac, last seen around these parts urging college students to contemplate the prospect of their own death on a balmy September evening), Michael Gangloff (late of Pelt and the Black Twig Pickers), Nathan Bowles (also of the Black Twig Pickers as well as the Spiral Joy Band) and the mysterious Harmonica Dan (from Pennsauken, New Jersey by way of ethereal caminos). This release is conjoined with a recording by Jack Rose, the Mike Morgan of the American minimalist neo-primitive sub-underground. This recording, entitled Jack Rose -- previously available to the buying public only in severely limited forms -- is here presented as a bonus to the consumer and perhaps as an act of folly for the producer." -Charles Fourier, Tequila Sunrise Records

Title: Hither And Thither
Format: LP
Label: Tequila Sunrise
Country: USA
Price: $24.00
"deluxe 180 gram vinyl pressed at record technology, inc., with an 8 page booklet, housed in a beautiful full color "old style/tip-on" jacket printed at Stoughton printing. limited edition of 500. Micah Blue Smaldone. A distinctive name, no? Micah? A minor Hebrew prophet. Blue? A hippy-ish middle name. Red white and? Moon of Kentucky? Smaldone.could be Italian, or Old English. I understand his grandfather (on his mothers side) fought with the John Brown Battery in the Spanish Civil War and taught young Micah plenty of the old songs - but dont ask him to play Jarama Valley in Catalan. Its just too sad. His grandfather never got over it, and the whole Comintern business still sticks in his craw. His great grandfather (on his fathers side) was the local IWW guy who saw to it that a little bit of Joe Hill was scattered in the Pine Tree State. Well, I just want to say to the country that this is a real decent, fine boy. Micah Blues got an original voice, reedy and spare, and hes a virtuoso ragtime finger-picker, too. His songs are charming, antique ditties - austere Tin-Pan Alley tunes with lyrics by Soren Kierkegaard. Like a single bright light, his music illuminates much while also casting a lot of sharp shadows, lovely, dark and deep. When he plays live, he tenses up his whole body - tenser than youd expect for a folk musician, like he might snap the strings, or snap the neck of his guitar, or just snap. But theres not a trace of irony in his music or in his performance, and I guess thats the Yankee in him. See, it gets cold at night up there in Maine, where hes from, and when you got the blank eye of god bearing down on you, and you got the Jukes and the Kallikacks next door getting high on Freon or something, it just makes a man think seriously about where he fits in. Willem de Kooning, gazing up at the star-spangled sky over Black Mountain in the forties, remarked "the universe gives me the creeps," and I imagine Micah might agree. Human consciousness may be a makeshift contraption held together with bailing wire and duct tape, but it will have to suffice. And it may well be true that regret and loss are inescapable human conditions (if you marry you will regret it, and if you dont marry youll regret that too). But it is also true that music is a bulwark against such notions of human frailty, and Micah Blues music does more than suffice. It offers balm and succor to a weary soul. "Micah is so good," Jack Rose told me, "hell make you throw your dick in the dirt!" I certainly agree with the spirit, if not the letter, of Mr. Roses sentiments. Ill have to let you personally be the judge on that score, though you ladies will have to determine some sort of equivalent for yourselves, assuming you concur." - John Jacob Niles.

Title: Cauldron
Format: LP
Label: Tequila Sunrise
Country: USA
Price: $23.00
"The animists of Mari El aren’t the last pagans, not by a long shot. Cauldron is on the job, too, working the hot-stick on Ley lines from Giant’s Despair to Kingdom Come, with a backpack full of old tube equipment and spools of magnetic tape. Cauldron spins secret messages encoded in lace and tosses the achillea millefolium to see where to go next. Cauldron wants to remind you that all you see is not all there is. The margins of “things” are crawling, if you know how to look: ancient spirits, saints, faeries, fractal elves, jeweled self-dribbling basketballs, etc. etc. etc. The trick is to find your way back to an unmediated life. So take Cauldron’s hand. Ignore the fire-exit signs warning you that an alarm will sound. It won’t. Push the door open… stumble into brighter light… the untended back lot behind our shared reality… where weeds push stark flowers through cracks in the cement… once you get out there everything is so quiet, all you hear is the breezes-s-s-s… butterflies and blue lizards flit and skitter amid the rubble of forgotten thoughts… “How wonderful that youre here!” they say. “You come so rarely! Were so delighted to see you!” Cauldron deals out a three of cups: Alan Sondheim, a pioneer of mystical ear-tweak and sci-fi sonic ritual sound, chamber-improv gypsy cellist Helena Espvall, and eco-trance singer Azure Carter… thrice to thine and thrice to mine, and thrice again, to make up nine. Channeling the ghosts of Opal Whiteley and Lou Harrison, Cauldron conjures the scratch and shush of the Big Bang out of wood, wind and cat-gut. Whenever you listen to it, this album is always over too soon, just like life. Fire Museum and Tequila Sunrise Records deal out a two of pentacles: not to get all “Yankee Candle” here, but we only made 250 of these, so grab one before they melt away like chemtrails in the sunset sky." - Fred Astarte, Tequila Sunrise.

Artist: SUNLORE
Title: S/T
Format: LP
Label: Tequila Sunrise
Country: USA
Price: $24.00
"The sun plays tricks on the eyes when the atmospheres just right, with fata morganas like the Crocker Mountains or the Flying Dutchman, or with sun dogs like the ones that dazzled and disoriented Robert Falcon Scott. Sunlore is like that. As soon as you think youve got a bead on what they are, they just shimmer away from you. Sunlore falls through the cracks. The LP kicks off familiarly enough, sounding like Sun Ra playing Bron-Y-Aur Stomp on a crunchy rocksichord, and then it lurches, keyboard-first, into a landscape of trailing moans and the distant clatter of ghost bongos ... parlor pianos playing melodies by Samuel Beckett ... a long parabolic samsara through some sort of hideously beautiful Sheela na Gig portal into a world lit by a black sun ... and then back out again to where you started from ... with all the fried elasticity of the first Amon Düül record, only a REALLY solipsistic version of it ... and ... wait ... on closer inspection, that aint Uschi Obermaier out there shaking maracas in the shadow of the Berlin Wall ... its actually your own pineal gland, vibrating? take that, Stasi bitches! So there you go. You can draw a set of references to similar sonic spacery from Shock Records early days, Skullflower, Dead-fucking-C, New Blockaders, the aural magick of RRR or even Red Rhino records. However far into the name-check bush you want to go on walkabout, youll still find an empty bag of clues at the end of the moebius strip. All I can tell you about Sunlore is that they come from southeastern Pennsylvania, one of the guys works down at the airport like Little Johnny Jewel, and they have some sort of affiliation with the equally uncategorizable Heart Land. And, like Heart Land, Sunlores self-titled LP is available on Tequila Sunrise Records, one in a series of on-going collaborative co-releases with Cream of Turner Productions. Its a limited edition of 200, all with hand-made sleeves. Each sleeve, it should be mentioned, is an individual work of art involving spray paint, ball-bearings(?) and the alchemical element of fire." -Tequila Sunrise. ""...whats so goddamn enjoyable about that is figurin out exactly whats spinnin; not just on the turntable, but in theys collective noggins. First go I could conjure them all sittin around a table, reading them Walter Wegmuller tarot cards while listenin to Toiling Midgets Deadbeats. Since then Is heard sounds what resemble: the X/pressway Allstars muted rock opera on Beak Doctor, the unrecorded Hovlakin instrumental lp, Danny & The Dressmakers reinterpretin Manuel Gottschings E2-E4 & Coloured Balls snorin through Marshall stacks." - Roland Woodbe.

Got a few more sealed copies of this 1982 release (we last had them 4+ years back..). Tucker is known amongst the hardcore for his legendary private press LP, Bat Stew, which at this point has achieved near-holy grail status. On that record Tucker recorded his cars engine and, after realizing that that was somewhat dull to listen to, he assembled songs over/with the autosounds and pressed it up on vinyl. This was back in 75. The recordings on In The Sack, while not as out there as Bat Stew, still maintain an eerie, semi-crazed songwriter/outsider aura. With bizarre postal nightmare cover artwork. Highly recommmended! Vinyl reissue of Bat Stew coming soon.. "there seems to be two truisms i keep to; ONE-by and large when an album is described as "loner/psych/real people" it isnt going to be as good as i hope, and TWO- the Residents suck. generally these hold true for me, maybe you too, and often ill look suspiciously as descriptions like that. but then i rememeber, hey the first few residents records are pretty damn amazing, and hell the kenneth higney and moolah records are pretty great too. When i have a need for the real people sound, the first record i reach for is mark tuckers "in the sack." Although better known for his "Bat Stew" record, which is being pretty relative, this album is no slouch. The cast of characters is familiar, upright piano, backwards vocals, rants, ravings, life savings. but here its damn cheap, hell you should buy a few for friends, im going to! Mark Tucker is one mean fucker on the piano + the best backwards vocalist ive ever heard, he knows more than blues progressions, this guy is writing pop symphonies, if david ackles or bootleg brian wilson is yer bag, this one is gonna rip the sack open (you can take that literally or apply it to Coley style allusion..). Comparisons to the first Residents record are not far off, but i truly prefer Tuckers record, it wouldn;t be out of place in a spin with Moolah, Bruce Haacks kids records, Song Cycle and Horrific Child." - Jim ORourke.

"Model Town in a field of Mud is the result of a collaboration between Neil Cambell and John Clyde Evans. This album was recorded largely thru the post during Johns year long stay in India. (although the very last few minutes are the duo live in Sheffield right after he returned). This album is a 50/50 collaboration, hopefully the first of many! John Clyde Evans has a lenghty career, even if he did "disappear" for a few years. John was in the band Hood (Domino Recordings) then cut a couple of great solo records, then disapeared, reappearing using his Sikh name of Tirath Singh Nirmala, cutting an LP with Richard Yuongs, then reverting his original name and droping the magnificent " Apetal Thunderfall" CD on us earlier this year!! Neil Campbell is a cornerstone of the UK underground and played in Vibracathedral Orchestra, Sunroof, A Band, with Richard Youngs, Damo Susuki and many many other artists. Despite some esoteric path, Model Town in a field of mud reconfirm John and Neil intentions to blast techno into the Stratosphere" - Textile

Employing a mixed bag of source material and a half drafted vocal approach, these 11 tracks explore the notion of contact calls, which are irregular, non-specific sounds many social animals make to maintain contact within a group. The group in this instance includes more than just other members; an expanded cast of objects, figures, nature, and works of art act as the recipients of these calls.

Title: AA
Format: LP
Label: The Death Of Rave
Country: UK
Price: $23.00
"The Death of Rave is proud to host the initiation of Black Mecha with AA, their sci-fi vision of heavy electronics strongly informed by the outer limits of black metal and a cryptic, esoteric Weltanschauung. Official communiqué from the Grand Lodge of Internal Masonry: "Black Mecha AA provides fragmented metaphoric sci-fi audio conceptualization based around some of the formative ideology developed by the Grand Lodge of Internal Masonry. With centralized focus on the deterrence and defence technique aspects of Internal Masonry, namely, Black Ray and its resulting Architecture Antithesis, or AA, mental effect, the six tracks create a realm conducive to execution of thought rumination, and an embankment for sharp inner pathways." Black Mecha does not exist safely within any pre-defined idiom. It is by nature a noumenal gesture in the void, projecting uncharted escape beyond staid, putative perceptions of genre. Fascinating for its sense of discipline and focus, AA is poised in the balance between meditative hypostasis and raging yet controlled emotion, characterized in the bellicose momentum of "Starship Aspicio" or the strobing, stately majesty of "Altruego," and to cataclysmic impact with the eviscerated electronics of "Black Ray." But make no mistake; its not showboating industrial noise or melodramatic angst -- the sense of control amid panic and dread is palpable and compelling in a way hardly experienced with such elemental force. For listeners of a steeled disposition and open mind there is a logic and ingenuity at play in this record that begs the rarest private consideration. But overall, enjoy this music in your own way, because that is the only way of Black Mecha!" - The Death of Rave.

Title: Disruptive Muzak
Format: LP
Label: The Death Of Rave
Country: UK
Price: $19.00
"Sam Kidels debut for The Death of Rave is a deft subversion of Muzaks meaning, application and affect, employing government call centers as unwitting agents in a stroke of Cagean and Kafka-esque compositional genius. Its a remarkably innovative, emotive and incisive 20 minute sound piece (with an additional 20 minute version on the other side) that reflects and refracts an aspect of the modern world in a way that arguably few other records have achieved. In aesthetic, Disruptive Muzak highlights a range of ambient, electro-acoustic and aleatoric composition techniques intersecting classical minimalism, dub and vaporwave spheres, all whilst revealing a spectrum of regional British accents commonly heard in call centers, yet seldom heard on record, certainly in this context. Disruptive Muzak also questions our relationship with music and technology, economics and socio-politics. By subtly but straight-facedly inverting the delivery and reception of Muzak, Kidel subverts its meaning, hypnotically suspending the listener in its lush, lingering sub bass swoops and piano motifs but, paradoxically beckoning the call center staff and us listeners to pay attention to the subtext of what is normally considered background sound or noise. Make no mistake, though: the artist is definitely not taking the piss out of call center workers; if anything hes highlighting a dreamy melancholy and detachment in their tedious roles and tortuous systems, one known from first-hand experience. The way in which Kidel executes the idea, both musically and conceptually, is little short of breathtakingly emotive and cathartic. Mastered and cut to vinyl by Matt Colton at Alchemy." - The Death of Rave.
"This piece came about during a research project into Muzak in 2015... Research by the Muzak Corporation found that Muzak must sound familiar, predictable, and non-disruptive to be effective. Drawing from this research, I composed a series of pieces that I call Disruptive Muzak. These pieces share a similar sound palette to Muzak, but their structure is less familiar, less predictable and more disruptive. To test these compositions I called up government offices that use Muzak in their telephone queues and played them down the phone instead of my voice. The music I played and the officials responses were recorded and assembled into the piece that you hear on Side A. Side B contains the music only, that can be used to DIY." -Sam Kidel, 2016.

Title: Children of Mu
Format: Dbl LP
Label: The End Is Here
Country: USA
Price: $26.00
"The Children of Mu is a group of songs, lyrics & extended performance revolving around the psychic and mythic origins of Mu, a Pacific island or lost continent (and counterpart to Atlantis) some believe to be fiction and others the cradle of civilization, and relevant to our present condition. It has been mythologized by the founder of Theosophy, Madame Blavatsky who contends that Mu was a land bridging India and Africa, inhabited by our spiritual ancestors, non-physical psychic beings. The LP charts the migration of Shadow Theater, the earliest visual/ musical form of storytelling from Mu to China, India and the invention of cinema in avant-garde Paris at the end of the 19th century. Songs on side one and two follow this migration and are performed in Chinese, French and English. Early wax recordings of poet Apollinaire (reading Bridge Mirabeau) and the first Chinese opera are mixed into collaged sections within the music. Sides 3 and 4 are a single long jazz improvisation over the channeled voice of Madame Blavatsky who reveals the history of creation and Mu. This is the fourth album by Monster Island, a four year project, whose previous recordings included; From the Michigan Floor, Dream Tiger and Peyotemind. This double LP is an edition of 500 copies with fabulous four color + metallic gold cover by ratty art genius Gary Panter.

Title: Luna Africana
Format: LP
Label: The Great Thunder
Country: Germany
Price: $25.00
"The Great Thunder present a reissue of Clara Mondshines Luna Africana, originally released in 1981. Clara Mondshine was a musical project of the late radio director, journalist, and composer Walter Bachauer, who worked for RIAS Berlin in the 70s and 80s. Mr. Bachauer was also involved as musician in projects with electronic artist Peter Michael Hamel and the krautrock act Between in the 70s. With Clara Mondshine, he was able to score three albums before his untimely passing in 1989. Luna Africana, from 1981, was the first, and it fits exactly into that era, when the sluggish grinding of the early epic "cosmic music" had finally completely vanished and a new peppy drive could be felt with the spacious soundscapes of electronic music. Still rather lo-fi, with primitive machine grooves and swirling waves of analog synthesizers to which some hypnotic drones were tastefully added, this music has learned a lot from the grand masters of the 70s, and especially the so called "motorik" style of krautish electronics with rather simple melodic patterns and a very rhythmical approach. The music on Luna Africae is quite imaginative and picturesque, and the trip it takes you on leads you through a dark galaxy where only the starlight guides your vessel. Certainly a must have for fans of Eno/Harmonia collaborations, Clusters Zuckerzeit (LR 333LP) and other similar "motorik" electronic albums. It also has a Kraftwerk feel, just without the vocals of course. This long hidden secret gem is unveiled for your stellar listening pleasure. Beware of the depths of outer space." - The Great Thunder.

Title: Mother Earths Plantasia
Format: LP
Label: The Great Thunder
Country: Germany
Price: $25.00
"The Great Thunder present a reissue of Mort Garsons Mother Earths Plantasia, originally released in 1976. Garson is well known as one of the pioneers of electronic music in the late 60s and some may have heard of his contributions to quite a few pop hits back in the day when he wrote and conducted orchestral arrangements for a few popular artists. During the second half of the 1960s, Mort Garson and his sidekicks Paul Beaver and Jacques Wilson among others, discovered the newly invented synthesizer courtesy of Robert Moog and made it an integral part of the future pop music even before Wendy Carlos released Switched On Bach in 1968. Plantasia was recorded and released a few years past Garsons monumental works: The Zodiacs Cosmic Sounds (1967), The Wozard Of Izs An Electronic Odyssey (1968), and Lucifers Black Mass (1971). Plantasia, originally released in 1976, has been labeled "warm earth music for plants . . . and the people who love them." So you as the listener can imagine that this is a rather bright affair, far from the dark and seething atmosphere of the earlier electronic pieces. A shining diversity of stylistic devices used as the foundation for dreamy and colorful compositions, which works like a soundtrack for a non-existent movie. The warm, yet haunting Moog melodies can still create a rather sinister vibe in their most playful and surreal moments, similar to what you would expect from a mid-seventies horror flicks from Italy. It is a feeling that, despite everything seeming peaceful and relaxed on the surface, something utterly dire is about to rise up. These are certainly just a few passages and when Mort Garson and his mates move on from lush orchestral soul arrangements to something white men always consider to be tribal music of the North American natives, you will drift with them from one scene of your inner mind movie to the next. At this point in the seventies, the technical requirements had already been a bit better with new inventions such as electronic percussion which gets used here and there, conjuring memories of records by German electronic pioneers from the same era, such as Cluster, Kraftwerk, and Tangerine Dream. And despite the twinkle-toed harmonies and big arrangements, which point at the big band music and orchestral pop Garson originated from, the whole work is futuristic and intriguing." - The Great Thunder.

Title: Clack!
Format: Double LP
Label: The Princes Stable
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
2011 release. "In Fall 1979, R. Stevie Moore squeezed into a midtown Manhattan building at 56 West 45th Street, entered a tiny 8th floor jingle studio run by Englishman Tom Clack, and proceeded to bond bigtime with ambitious engineer Jon Child (who Uncle Harry Palmer had earlier sought out to assist in assembling the original PHONOGRAPHY album) to create one of his greatest collections of music. Still awestruck by his recent move north, R. Stevie first met Jon & Tom when the studio was utilized for compiling the DELICATE TENSION LP. With a cache of great new songs & experiments, he now was set, aimed to break down all barriers and collect audio styles galore in a “professional” 8 track environment, a major jump from mere tapedeck home demos. The project extended well into the next year (decade). Those many sessions are gathered on this 60 minute masterpiece, simply titled “CLACK!” from which many of Moores greatest all-time hits emerged." -(Official album description via rsteviemoore.com).

“The 80s were R. Stevie Moores period of greatest exposure, and he started the decade off in style with an album of songs that would eventually become some of his most famous tunes. Clack! is notable also for being Moores very first professional studio sessions, recorded in an 8-track jingle studio (run by a gentleman named Tom Clack, hence the onomatopoeic album title) in midtown Manhattan in late 1979. The sonic difference between this album and Moores homemade 70s tapes is astonishing; the new version of “Part of the Problem,” originally recorded in 1978, is not only definitive, its arguably Moores all-time finest three and three-quarters minutes. More importantly, Clack! includes several other songs that would quickly become fan favorites, including a silly but surprisingly effective power pop rendition of the Big Boppers “Chantilly Lace” and the dark-edged new wave synth-pop of “Bloody Knuckles,” both of which garnered a fair amount of college radio airplay in the first half of the 80s. The jangly guitar rock of “Teen Routines” and “You Always Want What You Dont Have” accurately predicts the Hoboken sound that would sweep over Moores adopted northern New Jersey home in the ensuing decade, and the stomping “Conflict of Interest” and the thrilling falsettos of “U.R. True” are both vintage new wave and prime R. Stevie Moore.” - Stewart Mason, All Music Guide.

“Ive been digging into the overwhelmingly extensive catalog of the DIY iconoclast and self-proclaimed genius, R. Stevie Moore. Hes released somewhere in the range of 400 albums over the last thirty-odd years, which has to make him one of the most prolific artists of all time. Moore is clearly an influence on Ariel Pink and his followers like John Maus, Gary War, Geneva Jacuzzi... you get the idea. Clack!, from 1980, is a good demonstration of Moores diverse range. It jumps from a Big Bopper cover to bass-driven post-punk to straight-up country, and its full of weird pop gems. Highly recommended, guys.” -Top Of The Dial music blog.

Clack! (vinyl reissue + digital download) from jon demiglio on Vimeo.

“Along with Phonography, this is surely one of the best places to start at in R.S.M.s catalog. It was the first of his albums to be recorded in a professional studio and contains many of his greatest hits including personal favorite “Part of the Problem.” Absolutely nothing can prevent some of these songs from being the wackiest, yet also the happiest and funnest you may ever hear. Anyone enjoying Ariel Pinks music has a big reason to thank R. Stevie Moore and should look into his music very soon.” -Beyond Ultra Hits music blog.

Imagine Derek Bailey slamming his guitar into the circuitry of David Tudor and the subsequent brawl. Polite applause please. This is the sound of Caravaggio." -Spring Press
"Desecration of the note, tone and timbre of the guitar purposefully undermines the instruments iconography as a phallic avatar of Americana. The cover image of Ambianxe, Caravaggios The Lute Player (1595-96) reaches further into the instruments past incarnations as a symbol of youth, class and virtuosity... Fusinato has identified the Lacanian jouissance that runs concurrent with the anomalous post-Cagean world. In listening we are lifted from the day-to-day noise of society and repositioned into an analytical and intimate, yet sublime space, questioning the tactile sensation of sweeping frequencies and deciphering semingly formless sound structures. Put to a test of sensual assault and dropped into a pit of unreconisable, distorted crunch, one finds oneself barred from the recognition and relief of the funky pop song or the false sense of security installed by the enveloping blanket of supermarker Muzak. Ambianxe may only be a mediated recording of such things, but the significant placing of such a record in the technocratic world of music production and distribution highlights the artists recognition of his place within global media, post-millennium." –Nik Tammens, Un Magazine.

Over a concise four tracks, Giffoni projects a vision that revels in the idea of the synthesizer as a grimy, mud-encrusted machine whose function is to soundtrack a dystopian present rather than reference an idealised golden age or imagine a shiny ergonomic future." –Keith Monliné, The Wire.

Price: $8.00
"Lori E Allen is an unemployed prehistoric archaeologist from middle America, b. 1975, now living and working between London and Berlin as an experimental composer and video artist. In the early 90s while studying at New York University she met and began vaguely collaborating and cavorting with DJ Fat Pants, the obscure genome from which Madame Chaos was conceived. "Madame Chaos" was a public access television show, cablecast on Manhattan Neighborhood Network and Brooklyn Community Access Television in New York City from 1995 to 2005. Allen was involved until she was kicked out and describes the show, as it was seen on TV, as being "a re-digested type of media vomit which should comprise one the major vital food groups for growing children." Tears of the Material Vulture is a new composition which builds itself specifically upon three samples from two of Madame Chaos early cassette releases, MC Sampler and Creeping Eskimo Chong, both dating from 1995, and resurrected here in memory of those creepy times.

Title: Before Before Surgery
Format: Cass
Label: The Tapeworm
Country: UK
Price: $8.00
Featuring Bruce Geduldig of Tuxedomoon. "This cassette brings together two fragments of recent and ongoing controlled chaos taking place in Porto, Portugal -- with Antifluffy as both the foreboding guardian and the spiritual bond. Side one is the full recording of the closing concert of FuturePlaces 2013, Medialab for Citizenship, curated by Heitor Alvelos and Karen Gustafson for the UT Austin-Portugal Program in Digital Media. Every October since 2008, we throw together a deliberately unlikely mix of creatives, tech-heads, radio wizards, thinkers, activists, and nomads, and watch the impossible happen before our very eyes. Besides being the culmination of six days of creative work, this particular gig served as the chance to unleash Antifluffy onto the World at large... The recording on side two is again a concert. It emerged in the days leading to the Summer Solstice, 2014, as a gut reaction to the birth of a new Portuguese internet/mobile/entertainment brand mega-consortium: NOS. The ubiquitous NOS marketing campaign, treading on Photoshop boobs n teeth, dead pop stars, and hysterically cute pets, was reinvented as an antidote; cryptic and visceral, cerebral and introspective -- all that contemporary mainstream culture seems to abhor. The gig doubled as a goodbye card to Bruce Geduldig and Bernadette Martou who, after two extraordinarily fertile years based in Porto, left soon thereafter to pursue a new life across the Atlantic. From Tapeman to Bubblewrapman... Antifluffy in all its guises" --Heitor Alvelos, Porto, September 26, 2014.

A unique figure in the international noise and industrial music scenes, Osman Arabi is a composer, producer and sound designer from Tripoli, Lebanon. His work elicits images of desolate industrial landscapes and shamanistic rites.

His many projects have included Seeker, Kafan, Veinen, Shamanic Death Trance, The Ritual Inclusion Of Code, harsh electronics outfit 20.SV, as well as nihilist Dutch collective Stalaggh. In 2000, Arabi stopped performing live -- vanishing into the underground, not resurfacing until 2009. For the past decade, Arabi has been developing -- in complete secrecy -- his "occult guitar" playing, based on the sigil work of Austin Osman Spare. This new thread to his work was only recently unveiled, in late 2013, and is set to become the backbone of his live rituals here on in. Limited to 150 copies. Illustration by SavX.” - The Tapeworm.

This is the fourth installment in Autodigests series of compressed everything: this time around, you are promised all the bootlegs ever. At a time when the debate on music piracy rages on, it is a good thing to be reminded that the luxurious universe of unofficial recordings is now in its fourth decade and flourishing like never before. If anything, the pressing issue of containing the P2P sharing rampage of official recordings has benefited the underworld: record labels simply cannot be bothered with unofficial recordings when Britney Whatevers latest opus leaks weeks before release and costs them billions in lost revenue. The irony, of course, is that these free, unofficial recordings are infinitely more exciting than anything Britney Whatever could ever aspire to spit out. The music on this cassette spans over 40 years and was originally recorded on analog and digital equipment. As Autodigest explains, "we have attempted to distance ourselves as much as possible from the sound of the original recordings.

"She lay, naked, draped across the piano, her nipples still erect from her recent encounter. Globules dripped onto the keys, lying like translucent mercury pools, somewhere between solid and liquid, defying definition. She might be asleep; she might not. Its a special private place which cannot be shared or revealed. Her right hand slowly stroked the keys, as if to play; but there is no need for music now. She has her own sounds playing breezily around her; no need for form. Her fingers hesitate slightly as they play across the keys, as if reminded of her guttural expressions which recently filled the room. Her breathing was calm, but shallow -- a wave had passed through her, soaking her but now leaving her utterly changed but intact.

"Cassette-only release in a limited edition of 250 copies. Jean Baudrillards Le Xerox Et lInfini -- originally published in Paris, 1987 -- as read by Patricia and Ellen. Recorded on July 12, 2009 by Vicki Bennett in Hersham, England. Jean Baudrillard is perhaps the most important theorist of the "after modern." Though he says he has "nothing to do with postmodernism," many interpret him among the most important prophets of a truly postmodern era. His works have attracted praise and derision all over the world. Since 1991, British artist Vicki Bennett (People Like Us) has been an influential figure in the field of audiovisual collage, through her innovative sampling, appropriating and cutting up of found footage and archives. Using collage as her main form of expression, she creates works that communicate a humorous, dark and often surreal view on life. Patricia and Ellen were born in Reims, northeastern France, on July 29, 1929. They told interviewers that their grandparents were peasants and their parents were civil servants. They became the first of their family to attend university when they enrolled in the Sorbonne University in Paris. There they studied German, which led to them teaching the subject at a provincial lycée, where they remained from 1958 until their departure in 1966. While teaching, Patricia and Ellen began to publish reviews of literature, and translate the works of such authors as Peter Weiss, Bertolt Brecht and Wilhelm Mühlmann. Later on, with the development of the magnetic tape recorder, Patricia and Ellen used these new means in order to manipulate their performances and expand the possibilities of language sound transformations. Patricia and Ellen continue to actively perform their work, the contextual quality of which is enhanced by their idiosyncratic delivery." -The Tapeworm

Country: UK
Price: $8.00
"Biting Tongues were formed in 1978 to improvise a soundtrack to the screening of a 16mm experimental film of the same name at Tony Wilsons original Factory Club in Manchester. A core membership was soon established that was to last until 1984: Howard Walmsley - sax; Ken Hollings - texts; Eddie Sherwood - drums; Colin Seddon - bass; and Graham Massey - guitar and noise. Their performances, an unpredictable "post-punk avant-funk" mix of spoken word, percussion, random tapes, films and free-form soloing, were mostly confined at this time to clubs in Manchester and London. The release of their first three albums Dont Heal (1981), Live It (1981) and Libreville (1984) widened their audience, and Biting Tongues found themselves performing more in theatres, arts venues and galleries. Still On Hawaiian Time captures two Biting Tongues performances from this later period. The Library Theatre in the center of Manchester was a large seated venue with an even larger stage, meaning that the group members could spread out more and incorporate additional percussion, tapes and electronic devices. It also shows Biting Tongues cutting up and rearranging themes from different recordings - the performance also anticipates their work on Feverhouse: their full-length experimental feature film released in 1984 by Factory Recordss video offshoot IKON The improved facilities available in a theatre venue, including greater space, better acoustics and more time for a sound check, meant that Biting Tongues could concentrate on the performance, producing some of their most aggressive and demanding work. During the early 1980s, Biting Tongues excelled as a live band, always seeking to challenge both themselves and their audiences. These two recordings are fascinating documents that convey some of the immediacy and commitment of their performances - something that can still be felt in these old tapes some thirty years after they were first recorded. Personnel: "Library Theatre, Manchester 16.6.1983": Colin Seddon - bass guitar, drums, percussion; Eddie Sherwood - drums; Ken Hollings - voice, clarinet, percussion, tapes; Graham Massey - guitar, trumpet, trombone, clarinet, drums, Astroban, iguarglaphon, voice, percussion; Howard Walmsley- tenor and soprano sax, glockenspiel, percussion, voice; Barry Seddon - pick-axe handle. "Riverside Studios, London 5.6.1982": Colin Seddon - bass guitar; Eddie Sherwood - drums; Ken Hollings - vocals, Hohner Pianet, percussion; Graham Massey - guitar, clarinet, reed cornet, trumpet, iguarglaphon, Morello loop, diary, percussion; Howard Walmsley - tenor sax, voice, percussion, Hohner Pianet.” - The Tapeworm.

He has a wide-ranging portfolio career that also includes running music workshops with disabled children, and training and teaching at Goldsmiths College. Outside Broadcast is a departure from the more beat-driven glitchy style of Gagarin and is an evocation of childhood evenings sitting at an old "Portable" radio, obsessively tuning bakelite dials across the airwaves -- finding a weird sound to luxuriate in, then a bit of strange music, an exotically-named station, a call sign or simply the sound of the dial, all masked in MW/SW/LW noise.

Active since the late 1970s, Leif Elggren has become one of the most constantly surprising conceptual artists to work in the combined worlds of audio and visual. A writer, visual artist, stage performer and composer, he has many albums to his credits, solo and with the Sons Of God, on labels such as Ash International, Touch, Radium and his own Firework Edition. His music, often conceived as the soundtrack to a visual installation or experimental stage performance, usually presents carefully selected sound sources over a long stretch of time and can range from mesmerizingly quiet electronics to harsh noise. His wide-ranging and prolific body of art often involves dreams and subtle absurdities, social hierarchies turned upside-down, hidden actions and events taking on the quality of icons. Together with artist Carl Michael von Hausswolff, he is a founder of the Kingdoms Of Elgaland-Vargaland (KREV) where he enjoys the title of King.

Price: $8.00
"This series of works on this cassette began in 2011 when I attended a workshop/residency program led by the British sound artist, composer and performer Jan Hendrickse. During a workshop session I played a pattern generating system via headphones to a drummer, Patrik Jarlestam, who played a single snare drum. The basic premise of the work was that the performer should follow the pattern as accurately as possible, and to see what happened at the moments when the pattern changed - i.e. to foreground the performers attempts to follow the pattern and their ability to cope with the subtle yet unusual changes. The pattern itself consists of a single percussive sound. The timing of the sound is determined by a list of five values ranging from one to 11 that represent timing intervals... Although the patterns are relatively simple, and as a listener one can assimilate their form quite easily, it can be quite difficult to play along to them especially at those moments of change. So the piece can be thought of as a kind of intervention into the musical training and embedded musical vocabularies that the performer brings to the work. The point of the piece is not a perfect recital, but the difficulties that the performer encounters and the musical moments that these difficulties produce. Unfortunately I believe there is no recording of Jarlestams first performance of this piece - Focal Music #1. The piece was performed a second time by Okkyung Lee during her residency at Cafe Oto, London 2015. Focal Music #3 was performed with Laura Cannell at Baltic 39 (Newcastle, 2015) for Broken Telephone, an event which formed part of Peter J. Evanss exhibition Across Islands, Divides. Focal Music #4 was performed with Aby Vulliamy at The Leeds Library (Leeds, 2015). Focal Music #5a and Focal Music #5b were recorded with Sandro Mussida at Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologie (Karlsruhe, 2016) in the Kubus studio. The piece, performed on piano, takes two forms: the first based upon a six note pitch set of which any two notes are played at the same time; the second is formed of five discreet layers each with a single note. These were played in isolation following the same guide pattern and then later overlaid to form a single pseudo chord." - Mark Fell. Tracks mastered for this release by Phil Julian; Edition of 150.

The piece was first conceived for and performed at Harmonic Series at Southbank Centre, as programmed by Oliver Coates. In this piece each speaker plays a different and entirely static synthetic tone. The speakers are positioned around the audience and, throughout the piece, the direction and position of each speaker is changed, creating a slowly evolving synthetic sound field. For the performances featured on this edition, the speakers were moved by the following performers: Amy Kate Riach, Oliver Coates, Tom Rose, Naama Zisser, Rian Treanor, Galya Bisengalieva, Daniel Pioro, Hugh Brunt and Robert Ames. The recording and live sound engineer was Trevor Davison. 150 copies only. Cover collage by D.M. Nagu." - The Tapeworm.

Title: Nam June Paik - A Work for Radio
Format: Cass
Label: The Tapeworm
Country: UK
Price: $9.00
"This hour-long compositional documentary was produced for the CBC Radio Series "Signature," and was originally broadcast on April 28, 1979. It was nominated for an ACTRA award for best radio documentary of the year. It is the result of a remarkable creative collaboration by artists such as John Cage, Charlotte Moorman, Philip Corner, and Nam June Paik himself with the author. Interspersed throughout the portrait are audio realizations by Ray Gallon of conceptual works by Nam June Paik. Thanks also to Lorne Tulk for remarkable engineering and creative contributions, and to Digby Peers for the courage to broadcast it. Ray Gallon has been a communicator for over 40 years, half of that time as a radio producer and audio artist. Although he had a classical music education, Ray gravitated early towards the avant-garde, and was fascinated by musique concrète, electronic music, so-called progressive jazz, and the multi-track experiments of the rock revolution in the 60s. His first exposure, on television, to the work of John Cage came very close to the moment when he wandered into a cinema by chance, and saw Fellinis 8 1/2. The one-two punch of these experiences left him delirious for the rest of his life. As a radio producer, he has worked in almost every department at CBC Radio except hard news. He was nurtured by Glenn Goulds experiments with "compositional documentaries," and developed his own style, inspired by Goulds work. In the late 80s, Rays focus turned towards new media, communications art, and computers. After moving to France in 1992, he continued to produce audio art and radio while teaching courses in new media and working as a technical communicator. Ray is currently a researcher with The Transformation Society, and shares his life between Barcelona, Spain, and the Languedoc region of France. " - The Tapeworm.

"Cassette-only release. Limited edition of 250 copies only. Recorded on a Marantz PMD222 with Maxell UR-90 cassettes, Brooklyn, NY, VI-xix-2010 to VII-xxiv-2010. Analog Apparitions, by Brooklyn-based composer Randy Gibson, is a pair of 30-minute compositions designed specifically to be recorded and released on cassette tape. A student of seminal minimalist composer La Monte Young, Gibson follows in the tradition of prime harmonic just intonation pioneered by Young in the 1960s. "Apparitions Of The Four Pillars," the underlying composition on this tape, explores the depth of the harmonic series through standard just intonation methods and the use of higher prime-harmonic relationships. In the 18 hours of recordings layered onto the two sides of the cassette, you can hear the mechanism of the tape itself, the evolution of improvisations over seven recording sessions, and the purity of sine waves in complex prime-harmonic relationships. Randy Gibson is a composer and performer, living and working in New York City. He works with structure, evolutionary compositional models, and improvisation to create enveloping and ritualistic works in just intonation. Gibson began his musical training at the age of six, studying percussion. In the summer of 1998, he travelled to Japan to study marimba with the great Keiko Abe. In early 2003, Gibson began composition studies in New York with La Monte Young. Continually humbling and revelatory, his studies with Young have brought greater clarity to his work, and reinforced his aesthetic convictions. Gibson combines live and electronic music, as well as aspects of the world music he has studied, most importantly raga singing in the Kirana tradition with La Monte Young and Marian Zazeela, but also Balinese and Japanese music. Gibsons work has been performed at festivals around the world including the Spark Festival of Electronic Music and Art in Minnesota, The Internationale Tanzmesse NRW in Düsseldorf, The Boulder and Minnesota International Fringe Festivals, HOT DAM: the opening festival of the Denver Art Museum, the Sans Souci International Festival of Dance Cinema, the ISIM 3rd annual conference, the Erick Hawkins Legacy Forum in New York, the 2010 Korea Experimental Arts Festival in Seoul, and the 44th Internationale Ferienkurse für Neue Musik, Darmstadt. Gibson is the artistic director of Avant Media, a non-profit organization dedicated to collaborative artistic endeavors. Cover features an illustration by Oscar Henriquez.

"Cassette-only release. Limited edition of 250 copies only. This is a remix of Fenneszs Szampler cassette, created by Stefan Goldmann, erasing Christian Fenneszs original samples one by one and replacing them with corresponding samples of his own, made between 1999-2010 for his Akai S5000 sampler, in the same sequence. As a result, this cassette contains no sounds whatsoever from Fenneszs original. While Szampler was a journey through Christian Fennesz own sample collection, Stefan Goldmann structured his own sound archive around the layout of Szampler, replacing it all sound-by-sound. The result is a dialog of the sonic atoms that built the works of two of todays most challenging musical minds. Its a first-ever glimpse behind the curtains -- a full anatomy of sound, more revealing than any interview on "how it was done." When asked for his opinions on the art of the remix, Mr. Goldmann was unavailable for comment. So, instead, heres some words, written by Trevor Horn in 1986, that appeared on the rear sleeve of Frankie Goes To Hollywoods Warriors Of The Wasteland 12" single: "This twelve wild disciples version of Warriors is, of course, a remix of the track that opens the Frankie album Liverpool. The question is now begged -- what is a remix? It used to be a change of clothes, now its a dream come true. There is one answer. On Liverpool, the members of Frankie Goes To Hollywood played Warriors with their own notoriously fair hands: touching their instruments, squeezing, banging, urging, making noises which were recorded by microphones onto a tape recorder. This so-called 12", this marketing invention, this golden gate to possibilities is in fact a total cheat. What is a remix? A total cheat. There is another answer. No one played anything, in any orthodox sense. It was all done by computers, very powerful computers (38 megabytes RAM 600 megabytes hard disk storage) juggling and organizing pre-recorded sounds. We all had a hand in it -- that is, myself, Steve, Andy Richards the keyboard player, the lads, Holly and Paul. We all peered over the computer operators shoulder at the little screen, to see what the hell was going on, willing the circuits to do their uncanny business. From the little screen leapt twelve wild disciples, with their gifts for the listener. What is a remix? A gift. -- when its Frankie, and Frankie only. And this 12" is Frankie. Only."

Title: Havent I Seen You Before
Format: Cass
Label: The Tapeworm
Country: UK
Price: $8.00
Cassette-only in a limited edition of 250 copies. Berlin-based producer and head of the Macro Recordings label Stefan Goldmann couches his release for The Tapeworm thusly: "Since Im a less than mediocre guitar player, but a quite versatile editing engineer with a decade of experience of handling samplers and midi-sequencers, I could finally realize an old project which I can trace back to a lesson with my bass teacher in my teen days. He had found out a bass player with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra had recorded hours of improvisations and paid an engineer to cut it together into an enjoyable jazz album. The teacher, a profound jazz player himself, found this to be some sort of scam, while I was deeply impressed by the idea of merging hi-tech and improvisation. Finally, I had a reason to play and record some guitar for this fine project and cut it to death afterwards. Havent I Seen You Before is a cycle of five pieces, with two versions each, so it can be listened to as a continuous performance, as well as looped recordings when employing the reverse function some cassette players have. The latter can be done at any point, since the parts on the A and B sides match. All material on this album has a guitar (amplified and microphoned simultaneously) as its only sound source. These initial recordings were cut into loops with durations ranging from a fraction of a second to more than a minute. They were arranged into compositions, adding reverb, stereo panorama and volume adjustments. Layering the loops creates polymetric structures, but Ive tried to avoid the usual loop minimalism by the sheer number of looped segments which appear and disappear at distinctly different rates. Micro-loops vs. macro-loops is the main structural feature of the music on this cassette, playing around with a key feature of the format. Three recordings inspired this effort: John McLaughlins 1970 My Goals Beyond album, which offered a side of multitrack solo guitar improvisations (I believe this was the first jazz record to do this) as well as his unreleased guitar/voice album with his wife (John and Eve McLaughlin). McLaughlin was heavily under the influence of guru Sri Chinmoy and both albums have this very unique, dark drug/sect edge, adding an extremely intense quality to the modal guitar figures (well, probably also due to the Indian music he has been studying and merging with some impressionist composition techniques). I have tried to capture a bit of the mood and apply it to a loop-based, cut-up orgy. Another crucial record to me has been Derek Baileys Ballads -- Ive been astonished by the tidal movements in and out of the standards hes playing around with. So there is a harmonic base to my guitar mishandling, which is present throughout the entire album -- moving in and out of it. Id also like to note I applied an altered tuning to the guitar to achieve different natural harmonics than the ones one gets with the standard tuning -- and not to give in to the temptation of cutting some blues licks." --Stefan Goldmann, Berlin, 2009

I didnt know what to do with them, but kept returning to them over and over -- they had an uncanny quality while being totally dissonant and broken. One day I found some recordings I made on a four-track years ago with a WEM Copycat -- mostly my vocalizations looped endlessly -- and out of curiosity played some while playing the love songs in the background. Thats more or less how it began. A fortnight later, all six songs morphed themselves into drones and then, with some minor embellishments, and unfolding melodies, the titles magically fit the new music. Sumetha and James added their parts and the album was done -- no mixing required.

A2., "Widerverwendung" uses material from "MediaRecycling," a live performance at Gesellschaft für aktuelle Kunst (GAK) Bremen, 1999. This was a performance for opened-up VCRs, monitors, scissors, glue, medical gloves, cleansing alcohol. Sections of tapes were randomly chosen, cut with a scissors, then taped back live together in a different order. The version on this cassette was mixed in 2011. A3., "All I Have Ever Listened To" was mixed from "Sozialisationsmusik" -- a live performance at Academy of Media Arts, Cologne (1997) for three to eight turntables, cassette recorders and a mixer. With their help, vinyl records and cassettes from a great variety of genres (classic, electro, punk, rock, jazz, childrens audio dramas) are layered-up and mixed live.

Title: Mesmer

Price: $8.00
"Cassette-only release. Edition of 250 copies. Mesmer was Peter Rehbergs first-ever solo composition, originally released in 1995 as part of Mesmervariations, a (long-deleted) 2CD by Ash International presented in an oversized plastic wallet with eight card inserts. That release contained various original compositions influenced by the work of Friedrich Mesmer, and included pieces by Ryoji Ikeda, Gescom, Edvard Graham Lewis, Robert Hampson, Bruce Gilbert, CM Von Hausswolff and Drome (Bernd Friedmann). The artists featured on this release were given a copy of the vinyl recording Mesmer (Ash 1.8) and asked to compose a piece influenced by the work of Friedrich Mesmer, the 19th century "animal magnetist and hypnotist." The brief was -- there is no brief; method and style were left entirely to the discretion of the composer. Rehbergs contribution is reproduced in its entirety here, the B-side of the cassette containing a copy of the weathered dubplate of the track he cut in 1996 for personal DJ use." -The Tapeworm

Title: Infernal Furniture
Format: Cass

Country: UK
Price: $8.00
"Infernal Furniture is a collection of piano sonatas, backed with a version -- "Infernal Dub Furniture" -- where the recordings are subjected to the studio effects of delay and reverb, changing the surface and meaning of the music. The piano pieces themselves are drawn from the collection 10 Sonatas Ten (2010). Piano and electronic processing by; composed and produced by Andrew Poppy. Mastered by Zachary James Watkins. Ultra-Reds Dont Rhine writes: "A provocative proposition; Satie meets dub procedures. It makes me think about the erased link between jazz improvisation and dub where, in the latter, the improvised instrument is the mixing deck. If, as Cardew said, improvisation is the search for a sound to interpret a context, dub raises the stakes of that hermeneutic to the fight against Babylon. And then theres "Infernal Dub Furniture." To reinsert the anti-Eurocentric pulse back into the Euro-soundscape of Satie (the most Euro of Euro-soundscapes) is very subversive. This brings to mind Terre Thaemlitzs project of several yearsa go, rendering the roboticism of Kraftwerk, Devo and Gary Numan according to the principles of rubato -- all done via step-time programming. Its always interesting how this dubbing (or queering, as Terre would insist) also unleashes an affect of melancholy. An affect for a world whose evidence is unseen and unheard. But deeply desired." --Dont Rhine, Hollywood, CA, February 3, 2012." -The Tapeworm.

"So, things have gone full circle. Colin Potters first cassette was released in 1980 and here we are around 33 1/3 years later, observing the release of another cassette. The intervening period has seen a number of developments. The ICR label was inaugurated and still continues today, having released over 70 cassettes, records, and CDs. IC Studio was established soon after and has been operated by Potter (almost) continuously since the early 80s, at a number of locations. There, Potter has recorded, mixed, and produced a wide array of projects. He has gained a reputation for innovative mixing and sound processing, working with artists such as Current 93, Fovea Hex, Ora, Organum, Monos, Andrew Chalk, Jonathan Coleclough, Paul Bradley, Darren Tate, and, most notably, with Steven Stapleton on many albums by the renowned Nurse With Wound. Several solo works have been released, as well as many collaborations. For reasons best known to himself, he decided to try his hand at live performance and is astonished to be still allowed to do so. The second side of the cassette is actually a recording of a rehearsal for such an event and is documented, if only to prove that he does in fact actually plan ahead for these things. The first side is an exercise in mathematical repetition patterns, by someone whose counting is somewhat dubious." - The Tapeworm.

Title: Sinus
Format: Cass
Label: The Tapeworm
Country: UK
Price: $8.00
"A simple synthetic-based, sine wave-generating freeware program was used as a sound source for creating single pulses and long static tones in several different tonal pitches. No additional sound design or other analog or digital processing was used during the creation of the sounds. The single sound elements were layered and sequenced into different movements of varying shapes and colors, focusing on the pure essence and aesthetics of sound. Each track interweaves longer, stretched, tonal segments and rhythmic patterns into sine-curved compositions. The four Sinus tracks were sequenced at 120 beats per minute in 1999 by Steinbrüchel. They were previously released as a personal CD-R edition of 10 copies. Digital music kindly released by The Tapeworm on analog cassette in 2012. Biography: Steinbrüchels musical work deals mainly with the texture and atmosphere of sound. In the studio, he works relentlessly towards the creation of new sounds. The accumulation, collection and the arrangement of those sounds is revealed during his live sets. The sounds one hears in his music form both intricate patterns and spacious landscapes. In his experiments with electronically-created sound, Steinbrüchel portrays an acute awareness for beauty. His productions follow a distinctly sophisticated aesthetic. Flowing calmly through the listener, his music invokes a glowing space which invites the listener to travel within the sound. Steinbrüchels compositions and conceptual arrangements connect him to the genre of New Music rather than club music, locating his work more in the realm of digital sound art. Ralph Steinbrüchel, born in 1969, studied Communication Design at Central Saint Martins School in London, where he acquired a Masters of Arts and Design with distinction. He now lives and works as a musician and graphic designer in Zurich, Switzerland. In 2002, his composition Zwischen.raum (Domizil, Zurich, 2002) was distinguished with the Max Brand Award for Electronic Music (phonoTAKTIK.02 Festival, New York). In the same year, he received a compositional scholarship from Pro Helvetia, Arts Council of Switzerland, to work on his release Circa (LINE, New York, 2003). His last solo release in 2011 was the CD narrow (Room40)." -The Tapeworm.

The music they make together using a variety of vintage keys and reed instruments is a viscerally organic strain of proto-ambient, strongly influenced by the pre-sequencer Tangerine Dream of Zeit and Atem.

We sent out feelers via our contacts. We waited. Replies came back -- digital shrugs, all expressing a deep fascination that something sounding so splendid could remain unearthed for so long. Then, "Mr. Big" stepped in. Quite by chance, he was neighbours with one of the band. Such serendipity. He hooked us up. Letters were written, requests made, permissions granted, and a few short weeks later a copy of Live at F.W., mailed with a blurry Polaroid, landed on our desk. We sat back, and listened properly for the first time. We were blown away. We had just been given possibly the last great unreleased psych rock recording. Who on earth are The Van Patterson Quartet? This recording dates, we believe, from the late 60s. It features this hitherto unknown band in full flight, live. It needs to be heard to be believed.

This release has been mastered from that original cassette recording. I developed a generative music programme that created sound pieces within a set of boundaries. Tones were produced within a range of sound qualities, frequencies, periods and start times. Once the parameters were selected randomisation was used so that the programme chose which tones to play, how to play them, when and for how long. The parameters used made for completely different sonic experiences. Aeroforms 2 is a meditative drone piece. Aeroforms 1 is an ambient backdrop that doesnt even require the listener -- like a piece of audio furniture. Side one is for deep listening. Side two is for not-even-listening...

It takes the listener to a violent world with moments of great beauty. The reporter, far from being edited out, is very much present, as are the thumps and bumps he hears in his headphones. From a May Day call to arms by Winnie Mandela to the extreme views of white right-wingers; from 19-year-old platoon leaders to the aftermath of an attack by police and soldiers in Soweto; from the words of envoy Terry Waite to the funeral of a television cameraman and the Band Aid-like pop song released by the apartheid regime, ZA86 unflinchingly documents the disturbing reality of 1986 in South Africa.

Gripping, detailed, stately improvisation -- a bit like the ùrlars in classical bagpipe music -- which nervily mixes the sternly doom-laden with precarious, other-worldly wonderment. (The ondes Martenot is an amazing twentieth-century instrument -- beloved by Messiaen, for example, and Varese. The theme-song of Star Trek is a vocal forgery of its sound. “Jaime cette fragilité qui côtoie la capacité de te décoller le tympan sur certaines fréquences inopinément,” says Julie. “Je tiens une bombe dans les mains.

"You could never accuse Parisian artist Coni of releasing too much music; to date, the ClekClekBoom-affiliated artist has released just three EPs in four years. Clearly, these releases have impressed The Trilogy Tapes founder Will Bankhead, as hes snapped-up a four-track EP from the talented French producer. Its the A-side that sparkles the most immediately, beginning with the curious looped sound effects, slashed jazz chords, swinging rhythms and bubbling electronic hits of “Into The Silly World.” Arguably even better is “Zex Plongeon”. While not as thrillingly unusual as its predecessor, it feels more obviously tailored to club play. Its creepy, deep, drowsy and tense, with slowly pulsing chords and ghostly textures stretching out over a tidy techno groove." - Juno Records.

"Coruscating cut-ups yanked still dripping and yowling from the belly of the beast. Dazzling and invigorating, scary and discombobulating. “Psychic driving was a psychiatric procedure in which patients were subjected to a continuously repeated audio message on a looped tape, in order to alter their behavior... often hundreds of thousands of repetitions of a single statement over the course of their treatment. They were also concurrently administered muscular paralytic drugs such as curare... The psychic driving procedure was a chronological precursor to Camerons depatterning, involving massive doses of ECT combined with similarly large doses of psychedelic drugs like LSD. The intent was to break down the subjects personality -- theoretically psychic driving could then be used with some efficacy in establishing a new personality” (Hanson Records)." - The Trilogy Tapes.

Title: Heli Yuweli
Format: 12"
Label: The Trilogy Tapes
Country: UK
Price: $29.00
"Souleymans vocals are strong and assured on the title track, supported by traditional dabke instruments like the mijwiz, oud and tablas. As with most of Souleymans music, the song is celebratory and undeniably danceable. Anonymous duo Rezzett, a Trilogy Tapes staple, lure “Heli Yuweli” into their hazy techno lair. Their remix filters and distorts the original vocals, adding a blown-out bassline, a bouncing synth melody and flanging claps. And all the while Rezzett retain dabkes core elements. The aptly named “Rerezz” version of “Heli Yuweli” is a standout -- more suited to a spliff session than a wedding reception. The original is made to sound as if its playing in a nearby room, reduced to near-static noise, with a gauzy melody disrupted by rhythmic cymbals. Considering the dark, melancholic Legowelt remix on his last LP, Souleyman could do with more bizarre remixes of his original songs. Rezzett is known for their own thumping, distorted techno productions, but their work on this B-side makes it seem like the pair could remix just about anything." - Resident Advisor.

Title: Luftbobler
Format: Double LP
Label: The Vinyl Factory
Country: UK
Price: $27.00
"Brimming with subversive energy, searing wit and gallows humor, Luftbobler is the debut album by Dinos Chapman. Consisting of 13 tracks of electronic "Schlampige Musik," Luftbobler is the result of a decade of experimenting with sound. Inspired by insomnia, horror movies, and boredom, and made in a DIY fashion in the basement of his East London home, Luftbobler reflects Dinos Chapmans interests in the industrial pulse of Throbbing Gristle, willful experimentation of Stockhausen, and impish playfulness of Squarepusher, but sounds like none of them. At once eerily familiar and yet unplaceable, the albums multi-layered, innately physical soundscapes create a powerful sense of dislocation. Abstract and kinetic, the heavy low-end hits you in the solar plexus while the densely collaged melodies toy with your imagination. Dinos Chapman has also created the albums cover artwork, a limited edition of which will include a hand-tipped color etching." - Vinyl Factory. "...like a naked mole-rat plucked untimely from its snuggly basement-burrow, on its back, all squirmy, exposed to the suns dissecting rays." - Dinos.

Title: Cybernetic Serendipity Music
Format: LP
Label: The Vinyl Factory
Country: UK
Price: $40.00
"Reissue of the Institute of Contemporary Arts groundbreaking compilation Cybernetic Serendipity Music, originally released in 1968 to coincide with their exhibition "Cybernetic Serendipity," which proved to be a landmark in the history of audio/visual art, and the first exhibition of its kind in the UK devoted to the relationship between music and early computers. Both unique and extraordinarily influential, Cybernetic Serendipity Music captured a nascent scene on the cusp of a synth-led electronic revolution and was the only compilation of its kind to bring together the musicians, composers and inventors pushing the boundaries of early computer music on one record, a good six years before Kraftwerks Autobahn changed modern music forever. It documented a frontier spirit where pre-eminent composers John Cage and Iannis Xenakis rubbed shoulders with the likes of Peter Zinovieff, the founder of EMS and inventor of the game-changing VCS3 synthesizer, with music that was either composed by computers or, in Zinovieffs case, even performed by them. With only a handful of copies pressed and exclusively available from the ICA at the original exhibition, Cybernetic Serendipity Music has long held Holy Grail status among collectors and enthusiasts of early electronics, with the original record, on the rare occasions it becomes available, often changing hands for upwards of £150. Now to mark their forthcoming archival exhibition of "Cybernetic Serendipity" in the Institutes Fox Reading Room, The Vinyl Factory are teaming up with the ICA to reissue Cybernetic Serendipity Music on vinyl for the first time since 1968, faithfully reproducing the artwork -- taken from one of Peter Zinovieffs visual scores -- housed in a Garrod & Lofthouse-style sleeve in an edition of 500 copies." - The Vinyl Factory.

Title: Many Bright Friends
Format: CD
Label: The Wild Places
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"The idea of the Supersession album dates back to 1968 with Al Koopers LP with Michael Bloomfield and Steve Stills. Fast forward thirty-seven years to the new album by Many Bright Things. It opens with the twenty-second title track, followed by the twenty-minute centerpiece: The Paul Butterfield Bands John Coltrane/Ravi Shankar-inspired masterpiece, East West. Across its twenty minutes and forty-four seconds no fewer that FIVE guitarists step into the center ring with solos that begin with Larry Demyer (Windopane) and include back-to-back fiery electric sermons by Nick Saloman (Bevis Frond) and Al Simones. The Silver Witch is written and performed by Alisha Sufit (Magic Carpet) accompanied by Frank DeFina on a beautiful Stephen Gilchrist F-5 mandolin. We think this song opens the second side of the vinyl as nicely as Within You Without You opened side two of Sgt. Pepper. Alishas voice reminds us of our dreams of angels. A tamboura drone and tabla accompaniment (by Paul Tescher) are the foundation for Minor Parade for 18 Strings and a duet between Stan Denskis acoustic 12-string Guild guitar and Paul Majors lead electric. Stan Denski & Larry Demyer play guitars, David Tufty Clough (Zero Boys) adds bass and Lon Paul (Marmoset) adds percussion, all of which form the ground upon which Jello Biafra (The Dead Kennedys) improvises observations on rare psychedelic music on I Am Not a Collector Potato! We guarantee youve never heard anything quite like this. The CD adds the ambient bonus track There Will Be a Slight Delay." - Gates Of Dawn.

Price: $12.00
Original copies of the second of two CD versions from Wild Places (the first label to reissue "Parallelograms"). This one, from 2003, includes 6 previous unreleased demos. "Linda Perhacs Parallelograms is one of those exceptions that proves the rule; the American equivalent to Vashti Bunyans Just Another Diamond Day. An uncanny mix of Aquarian folk and ethereal, avant-garde treatments, Parallelograms was created in the heart of hippy country, LAs Topanga Canyon, by a dental hygienist who was inspired by nature and by the cultural revolution going on around her. “Im not a drug user,” she says now, still living on Topanga Canyon Boulevard. “I never was in the ‘60s and ‘70s, but I loved those people because they were dealing with energies, and our conversation level would be very deep. Im deeply intuitive, I see and hear things the average person might not experience.

Parallelograms was produced by one of Perhacs dental clients, Leonard Rosenmann, a film composer who had written the scores for Rebel Without A Cause and Barry Lyndon. Over nine months, with a host of experienced players on call – “I felt like a street urchin being schooled by Picasso,” she says – Rosenmann fleshed out Perhacs astonishing and intuitive musical vision. When Parallelograms was finished, it sounded like a masterpiece, but the Kapp label pressed it so badly that, Perhacs says, “I could only bear to listen to it once. I then threw my copy of my own record away.” Promotion was negligible, sales non-existent. Obscurity beckoned.” - from Linda Perhacs website.

Title: Gong/Ear: Shaman
Format: CD
Label: The Wormhole
Country: UK
Price: $15.00
"Philip Corner (b. 1933) is an American composer, musician and visual artist. A founder member of Fluxus, his teachers include Henry Cowell and Olivier Messiaen, and he has performed with George Maciunas, Yoko Ono and Nam June Paik. While on military duty in Korea in 1960-1961 he studied calligraphy with Ki-sung Kim and many of his works have calligraphic scores. His wide-ranging output includes works for gongs, bells, metal percussion and gamelan orchestra. Philip Corner writes, "Hiah Park - new age shaman, then living in California. My Korea connection interest led me to a workshop she gave in New York; more sessions continued until the opportunity of really working together at the proposed seminar Art and the Invisible Reality to be held in Bavaria. I revisited my old practice of metal meditations specially reinterpreted to go with performance/dance derived from traditional shamanic practices. Then done in Trento in front of the cathedral where we joked about when they burned witches. After the two performances in Europe our association came to an end. Sin Cha Hong, a great friend in New York and a fabulous dancer and choreographer with a truly profound and intense body-incorporated physicality serving a spiritual content in no need of official status. Her Korean-American company she called Laughing Stone; she used my anklung (Javanese bamboo rattles) quartet gamelan Adagio onstage for one of her solos... This recording I made alone in the New York loft with my familiar - the large Paiste tam-tam: while holding her in my mind. The dancer/shamans are, as their names show, from Korea - the country par excellence for this ancient form of religion incarnate. I have had a long a long continuing and most appreciative relationship to that countrys culture, from 1960 when shipped as a trombones-man to the American occupying forces there and turned on each afternoon listening to National (Kuk Ahk) Music Hour their theme song Su Je Chun - the most ancient piece from the court repertoire which I have never stopped hearing as the most beautiful music ever made. That, and the breakthrough composition Sang-Teh/Situations which written and performed in Seoul in 1961, made this meeting and working with a genuine Korean shaman a spectacular amplification of my rapport. It was the beginning of the years-long improvisation-meditation practice shared with many other dancers, including most notably Phoebe Neville, soon to become my wife, and still is." - The Wormhole.

“Dale Cornish and Phil Julian provide three tracks from which emerged from a rehearsal session in South Croydon. "Laughing Out" is the duos sing-along summer anthem and shares some DNA with "Love Cant Turn Around" as re-imagined by a balding chap with a distrust of the dancefloor. "For Vocal" appears to be a recording of people moving pallets of ride cymbals wrapped in tin-foil around a warehouse but its hard to say, really. "Palazzo" = a computer minding its own academic business + some curmudgeonly American test equipment + some honeypot crooning = not a dry seat in the house.” - The Wormhole.

"Leslie Winer &c. brings together tracks from the first two decades of Leslie Winers extensive yet little-known body of work. The earliest pieces, recorded in the late 80s, appeared on her debut solo album Witch (Transglobal/Rhythm King, 1993). First issued as a white label pressing in 1990 and featuring Jah Wobble, Karl Bonnie, and Helen Terry, the album earned Winer the distinction "grandmother of trip-hop." After the official release of Witch in 1993, Winer all but disappeared from public view, making only sporadic guest appearances on releases by such varied artists as John Hassell (1994), Bomb The Bass (1995), and Mekon (2000). While she has continued to record throughout the 90s and 00s, little of Winers work has surfaced, until now. Some of the material from the two albums she cut in the mid-1990s with Joe Galdo at South Beach Studios in Miami appeared in 2010 on The Tapeworms release & That Dead Horse. Other tracks from these projects and her collaborations with Vincent Gallo appear here for the first time. Throughout her career, Winer has worked with artists as divergent as Holger Hiller, Carl Michael von Hausswolff, and Dale Cornish and her songs have been recorded by Sinéad OConnor, Boy George, and Grace Jones. Her most recent collaboration with French musician and producer Christophe Van Huffel, Purity Supreme, resulted in a four-track vinyl EP Always Already, released by Ash International. Leslie Winer &c. is a product of The Wormhole. Housed in a 9"x6" PVC sleeve with poster." - The Wormhole.

"After years of pleading Siwa finally convinced Chie Mukai and Masayoshi Urabe to offer up this much needed document of their ongoing collaborative work. The original recordings were culled from live performances between1990-2001 and were then edited by Urabe. Chie Mukai should be known to many for her work within the more structured confines of her band Che-Shizu but she also has an impressive history in improvised music that goes back to her time as a student with Takehisa Kosugi in the mid 70s. The Che-Shizu albums and her two previous solo releases (a CD on PSF and the out of print LP on Siwa) have introduced a select few to the meditative drone of the er-hu (a traditional two string violin) but here she can also be heard on vocals, piano, toys and various percussion instruments. Likewise Urabe, known mostly for slowly wrenching unfathomable screams from his alto saxophone expands his instrument choices to employ a soprano saxophone, some percussion, harmonicas, chains and a particularly vicious electric guitar. This is passionate, physical and highly individual improvised music with an intensely human soul. A companion video released on the Japanese "There" label is also available and does more to explain the physical nature of these performances than any audio document could. But you have to buy the LP first. This is a vinyl only edition of 400 copies and comes in a silkscreened sleeve." -Siwa.

75 Dollar Bill is Che Chen and Rick Brown. "Ches interest in the Arabic modes of Mauritanian music has marked our sound quite a bit but I have brought some things, too. The plywood crate I play is a big factor, defining, by its positive qualities (a nice warm boom sound) as well as by its simplicity, what were likely to do in the percussion realm. Wood/Metal/Plastic/Pattern/Rhythm/Rock, this new record, differs quite a bit from the previous one, notably in the rhythmic tone. Wooden Bag (2015) was all forward momentum, stomping and shaking, but the new record explores a long-standing interest of mine: odd and compound meters. In most of my previous musical activities, Ive convinced my partners to delve into this, but in 75 Dollar Bill it has just felt natural and I believe Ches modal investigations and melodic/harmonic tendencies enhance (and are enhanced by) this combination. The current record differs from the last in another big way: reinforcements! Over our few years together, Che and I have frequently had friends play with us at some of our gigs. There have been all sorts of permutations of instruments and some great friends/players who dont all appear on this record but here we are lucky to have a bunch of them: Cheryl Kingan (of The Scene Is Now) on baritone and alto saxes, Andrew Lafkas (of Todd Capps Mystery Train) on contrabass, Karen Waltuch (of Zeke & Karen) on viola, Rolyn Hu (of True Primes) on trumpet and Carey Balch (of Knoxvilles Give Thanks) on floor tom. Please enjoy Wood/Metal/Plastic/Pattern/Rhythm/Rock. Earth saw is one of our earliest tunes and, I think, the first result of this compound meter approach. Its a slow 9 beat phrase Che came up with for this odd groove. Beni Said has no fixed rhythmic cycle but a roughly unison melodic phrase and a pulsing, loose feeling of 3s and 4s played using a box full of bottle caps. Cummins Falls features Carey Balch on Diddley-beat floor tom and me reprising the maracas. Im Not Trying To Wake Up is another of our compound meter songs, this one using an 18 beat scheme." - Rick Brown.

"Decked out in a skullfucked sleeve that looks like a cross between Slayers gorecore classic Seasons In The Abyss and the prison tattoo iconography of original Cleveland gutter punks The Electric Eels, the debut vinyl from Ohios Burning Star Core reconciles the euphoric, physical power of Metal with punk primitive aesthetics and huge lungfuls of drone. The A side is 16 minutes of heavy violin thats more Sonny Sharrock than Tony Conrad, with mainman C Spencer Yeh amassing waves of singing overtones via treated strings and electronics, while Chris Rosing provides the horizontal momentum, accelerating the piece towards the horizon with an epileptic bass drum and some furiously clanking chains. The piece builds to nowhere, growing more potentially eplosive and menacing with each pass, with Yeh stretching his violin to even more extended peaks while never relenting on the tension. The second side features Yeh alone, working through some "sleep deprivation experiments" with a laptop for company. Here he alternates strangulated computer tones that sound liek theyre being torn from a huge electronic harmonica with wraithe-like breaths turning through disconcertingly staggered loops." - David Keenan, WIRE.

"Thin Wrist Recordings presents the expanded and definitive double LP edition of Kevin Drumms groundbreaking first album, originally released in 1997. Featuring some of the most fiercely abstract and organic guitar work ever heard, Drumms debut is both jarring and completely alien. Dubbed by some as the greatest prepared guitar record ever recorded it prefigured (and continues to trump) almost an entire decade or so of contemporary "out" music that would follow. Beautiful and completely essential. This edition includes an entire fourth side of previously unreleased recordings from Drumms personal archive, all recorded in the same era as the original album. It also includes entirely new artwork featuring the body of the actual guitar used to record the album. The album comes housed in a heavy textured gatefold jacket and includes two full color inserts. High quality 2 x 180 gram vinyl pressed at Pallas Germany and mastered by Rashad Becker at D&M Berlin. Digital download included." - Thinwrist. "Looking back at Kevin through his formidably individual tunnel of works, its hard to remember that his first official recorded statement would be caught sneaking into bed alongside historys milestones of "solo instrument improvisation." Or that, in turn, it also would be caught trying to sneak out of the house built by Father Jazz, into a backyard that still hasnt quite been fenced off yet. Those running around Chicago chasing down the sound in the mid-90s shouldve already known about this guy and his contributions both in and out of the relative spotlight. For those far from the city winds, thankfully they mightve gotten the message in the form of this missive. In the afterglow of later love letters titled Sheer Hellish Miasma and Imperial Distortion, its absolutely overdue that this first musty green postcard be dug out, polished off, and framed. Judged by its understated title, "Self-Titled" aka "Guitar" is incredibly literal -- what you hear is what you get. In the simplest considerations, the ensuing connotations and possibilities are wide open; the real-time velocity of urgent decision and movement are wrapped in a clearly-mapped compositional endurance that continues to stand firmly in the relative spotlights of this day. No surprise then, that even all these years later, we would still be trying to figure out exactly at which table Kevin should squarely sit. They say that every kid who heard this record immediately went out and grabbed a busted guitar with a scratchy selector switch, ready to subject their friends to fuzzy pauses of amp hum. I know of at least four."- C. Spencer Yeh, spring 2010, Brooklyn NY.

Artist: KOLOVOS, PETER
Title: Black Colors
Format: Triple LP Box
Label: Thin Wrist
Country: USA
Price: $38.00
"Over more than a decade Peter Kolovos has created an incredibly physical and dynamic musical language using the electric guitar. He plays music that unpredictably flows from electrified fragments of sound which fold and expand in dense layers and massive tones that surge and collapse in rapid succession. His approach has been called “massively a-formal” and his control of timing and texture “masterful.” Rather than set harmonic or rhythmic structures, he draws form from open sequences of sound events merged and propelled by a distinct internal logic. In his music Kolovos attempts to erase the line between intent and impulse and to create sounds that are immediate and unrepeatable. Black Colors is the fullest realization of Kolovoss music to date. Over six sides of vinyl the album presents a vast world of intricate sound—at times dense and teeming with saturated bursts and drones and at others sparse with minute ticks and quiet tones that reverberate in open space. Without a preset listening sequence, the album is intended to be a shifting, prismatic work—with sides that can be arranged in hundreds of different sequences, each yielding a distinct sound experience. The music on Black Colors is coupled with Zoe Croshers artwork. Eight photographs from her "L.A. Black Like" series present views from the black spaces and shadows of Los Angeles where light and color only pierce the darkness in filtered and obscured glimpses of the outside world. Beyond being created in the same time and place, Croshers images and Kolovoss music share a deeper consonance. Deluxe Packaging: 3 x 180 gram high-quality vinyl pressed at Pallas Germany. Mastered at 45 RPM for volume, dynamics, and clarity by Rashad Becker at D&M Berlin. Full-color, heavy tip-on slipcase with three full-color sleeves. Digital download included." - Thin Wrist.

Country: USA
Price: $13.00
Full Color Heavy Tip-On Cover / 180 Gram Vinyl Edition of 500. "Peter Kolovos, guitarist in Los Angeles trio Open City, presents here three tracks of electric guitar improvisations. Each features successively recorded left- and right-channel guitars, in which the overdub responds asynchronously to the original. While Open City explored the electroacoustic interplay afforded by the two-guitar and drums line-up, in New Bodies, his first solo release, Kolovos lets rip with all the skronk and blurt hes been holding in for the last decade, in tiny, tightly gated segments. His sound vocabulary is very broad, and his control of texture and timing is masterful. Using equalisation, reverb, envelope shaping and volume control... He rapidly opens and closes the volume window on a dizzying series of extended guitar techniques, creating the inescapable impression of Derek Bailey covering The Residents Duck Stab. If that wont sell records, I dont know what will. This electrifying effect is enhanced by the crisp digital recording and the superb Dubplates and Mastering pressing job - every clang and buzz is right up in your grill. Released on Kolovoss own imprint, the packaging continues the good work. The cover features a magnificent photograph of the guitarist taken by Joyce Campbell using the mid-19th century tin type process, which requires a sitting of over three minutes. The resulting image is as physically time based as the recording it encloses, and has the distinctive look of a Victorian death mask - no posing or even facial expression is possible. In this regard the cover is an exact metaphor of the recording - what you perceive is exactly what you get." - Bruce Russell, The Wire August 2009

"From Los Angeles, Open City chase two electric guitars and one close-miked drumkit through scurrying pointillist sketches, firecracker drones, and explosive smears of colour. Members of Open City have previously played with the likes of Anthony Braxton, Alvin Lucier, and Phill Niblock, and theres no denying their strong grasp of the language of higher minded improvisation. Yet their approach is undercut with a real rock sensibility, made most manifest in the barbed wire tones of the guitars. Indeed, the combination of avant theory and punk rock aethetics drops them in a similar space to Sonic Youths Goodbye 20th Century. Drummer Andrew Maxwell runs the gamut of percussive techniques, from all-out pots and pans attack through the kind of sonorous cymbal work that Eddie Prevost uses to illuminate AMMs darker paths. Twin guitarists Peter Kolovos and Doug Russell veer from Sonic Youths Moore/Ranaldo tag team wrassling to setting their guitars up as lightning rods for the liquid flow of electricity. Though the music is formless, the group are so aggressively focused that even the slightest of movements feels totally inexorable." - David Keenan; WIRE.

"Inspired by Coleridges opium-induced reverie, “Kubla Khan,” Nedelle Torrisi named her band Paradise to evoke a perfect place,
the opposite of hell— a place where, as the poem describes, a person exists in perfect harmony with their creativity. 
Torrisis Paradise is a place of innocence before cynicism, one where love is still king. Her music embraces romantic sentiments 
and an intimate earnestness that invites listeners to abandon their own sense of self consciousness. In Paradises music, Torrisi writes love songs that long to fulfill the unfinished figures of a lovers fleeting thoughts and utterances. 
In A Lovers Discourse, Roland Barthes wrote that "The lover speaks in bundles…but does not integrate these sentences
on a higher level…but all together they make up the love story." 
With Paradise, Torrisi weaves these unresolved emotions and stories into love songs. I Love Thousands Every Summer is Paradises first release. Limited Edition Deluxe 7" Vinyl (Download Included). Nine 7" x 7" full color inserts housed in letterpressed vellum envelope." - Thin Wrist.

Price: $16.00
"Over the last two years Tearist has become one of the most notorious and vital bands in the new underground pulsing through Los Angeles. Building on songs driven by intense vocals and synths, the duos performances are known for being deeply physical and direct events. Yasmine Kittles sings from the depths of her body/soul and moves in a near-transfixed state, using scrap metals to scrape rhythm from the ground beneath her. All the while, as if telepathically linked, William Strangeland uses sputtering, cracked synthesizers to create shimmering melodic lines along rumbling interlocked beats and rhythms. Their songs flow and surge, building thick layers of analog sound and noise, often leaving wrecked PAs in their wake. On the heels of the bands recent 12” EP issued by No Ages PPM label, Thin Wrist Recordings is proud to release Tearists first full-length album, Tearist Living: 2009-Present. The album is a rough, raw document taken from audience recordings made in warehouses, lofts, concert halls and everywhere in between. Across two sides of vinyl, multiple versions and performance tapes are spliced, mashed, layered, collapsed and collaged to create an organically flowing album. Full songs cut with snippets and interludes capture the band in its early formation. This is a sideways introduction to Tearists devastating performances and a nod to semi-legendary live cassettes and bootlegs. Think of it as a sort of Sonic Death, 2 x 4, or Metallic K.O. for today, or maybe 23 Minutes Over Brussels via Los Angeles. This is immediate and unpolished sound as a means to an intimate and transcendent experience. Limited edition high quality vinyl in full color & hand-letterpressed heavy tip-on jacket." - Thinwrist.

Reissue of this classic outsider freak-out album, first issued by Pilz in 1972 , featuring the duo of Paul & Limpe Fuchs (vocals, electronics, zither, percussion, drums, Fuchshorn, etc.). Their 2nd album and a classic example of 70s improvisational madness, highly peaked. "Anima were an adventurous German trio who liked to take jazz music to the extreme. On this album they were joined by Austrian avant-gardist Friedrich Gulda, with whom they recorded two studio jamming sessions. Nothing was decided beforehand or premeditated, and the result is two tracks of completely spontaneous off the wall jazz. Anima are one of the few of Rolf Ulrich-Kaisers proteges who are still actively touring and recording today." - Think Progressive.

Country: UK
Price: $19.00
"Between Blue & Yellow and Deceit came the 3" EP, Health and Efficiency. It bridges a gap between the mostly improvisational former, and the highly composed latter, showing great diversity in the bands sound in general, as well as nicely documenting their two extreme directions. The title track is This Heats single most high-energy piece ever, and is a tour de force of singing, ensemble playing and sound texture. It is propelled along by Charles Bullens signature guitar strumming & ratcheting harsh picking, and includes an extended coda section, where the solos are tape loops and field recordings of such unlikely instruments as dishes clanking around in the sink, a childrens playground, metal clangings, hoots & howls, as well as tons of tonalities whose impetuses can only be guessed at now. It evokes the darkest aspects of This Heats musical beauty, and the drumming throughout is explosive. Graphic/Varispeed is a completely different kettle of fish; a trance-like VSO experiment meant (on vinyl) to be listened to at 33 1/3 and 16 rpm, as well as the original 45 rpm (the version on this disk): A single tape loop from a section of the first album is processed to the point of unfamiliarity, stripping it of almost all motion, save for the changing of pitches, which become increasingly more radical as the piece unfolds. It is one of the bands most experimentally sound moments, and serves as the direct antithesis to the title track." -This Is.

Title: Repeat
Format: CD
Label: This Is
Country: UK
Price: $19.00
"Repeat is This Heats fourth album proper, posthumously released in 1993. It harbors the most extreme musical side of This Heats experimental tendencies on disk, and is assuredly the bands most radical offering. The title track is an oxymoron: An extended/edited version of the piece 24 Track Loop, which had been previously issued on the Recommended Records double-disk sampler in 1981, heard here sans the harmonizer effect. The original tracks were produced by David Cunningham (Flying Lizards) and Anthony Moore (Slapp Happy-Henry Cow). Metal follows, and is essentially the late Gareth Williams leading the others in the band on a acoustic foray: ...recording metal sculptures, mostly -- rejects from someones studio -- some corrugated asbestos, and a lot of scrap metal, as Charles Bullen recollects many years later. The result can only be likened to the works of master electro-acousticians Denis Dufour and Francoise Bayle; an approach as far removed from rock music as can be, elucidating the cutting-edge nature of This Heat when not confined to the premises of compositional thought. Graphic/Varispeed is an alternate, 33 1/3 rpm version of the piece heard on Health & Efficiency. Originally released on 12" vinyl, the speed setting and track timing were not specified, leaving the listener in a quandary as to its intent, but ultimately (and altruistically) leaving the public to decide the fate of the piece. HOWEVER, by issuing both versions on two separate albums, the enigma cleverly lives on." -This Is.

Country: UK
Price: $16.50
"This Heat, the band, emerged in early 1976 on the leading edge of what became the New Wave, but they were always apart, more scary and more subtle. Known as the most left-field, and at the same time most hard-edged, band in all of England, their concerts attracted experimental, punk and new wave audiences alike. Just a handful of performances made them the band everyone had to see, and every journalist had to interview. And the more we knew, the more enigmatic they became. This Heat was a passion. The band worked day-in, day-out for years in their own, now legendary, studio in Brixton (Cold Storage - sited in an old industrial meat refrigerator), or they were away somewhere touring abroad. In this hothouse environment, their material evolved and grew, and became increasingly intense; on the one hand more cuttingly simple, on the other more layered and more dense. When their first LP - itself several years in the making - finally appeared on David Cunninghams Piano label in 1979, with its distinctive blue and yellow sleeve, it acquired immediate iconic status. And over time it has also proved itself prescient; there are musical innovations here that anticipate genres that would take another 15 years to reappear. This Heat, the record was a landmark release. It tore up the book and laid new rules for band composition and performance. The music was without precedent; the musicians uncompromising; the recordings hammeringly intense and the sound deep, radical, and rich. This was music stripped back to the bone but never simplified.  And it hasnt aged. The later CD version of the LP has now been out of print for some fourteen years (and is currently fetching  $300-$350 second-hand), so this edition, the first on the new This Is label, re-mastered and repackaged by the group, will be doubly welcome. It is the first of a series of historical This Heat re-editions and unpublished works by the band to be released on this dedicated label." - This Is.

"Birds and Bees" is One Man Bannisters third release, following 2013s "Evolver" (a re-interpretation of the Beatles "Revolver" album) and 2007s "Moth". One Man Bannister is Matthew Bannister, who has played in many NZ groups including Sneaky Feelings, Dribbling Darts of Love, The Weather, The Mutton Birds and most recently The Changing Same.

Matthew Bannister´s solo albums have all been recorded at home, and over the years he has accumulated hundreds of tracks. Some end up being performed live, but many only exist as recordings, because sometimes the magic moment isnt replicable. You can get sounds in the studio that you cant get live.

This album compiles some of those moments, interpersing a number of never-before-heard songs with reflective instrumental interludes. The general theme is summer in sunny Aotearoa/New Zealand - quite often you can hear birds singing in the background of the recordings, so the album opens and finishes with some ornithological observations! The oldest song ("Scared") dates from the early 1990s, the most recent "Summer Showdown" from early 2014. An apt comparison would be Paul McCartneys early solo albums, such as "Ram", or post-"Smile" Beach Boys, modest, home-made, wholesome fare, but packed with melodic invention and domestic quirkiness." - Thokei Tapes.

They could immediately sign a contract with the Island label. On Friday, 23rd October 1970, they had a gig at the third Essen Pop & Blues festival in the Gruga Hall. The concert was then recorded semi-professionally by the host. Now, the tapes have been elaborately re-mastered by Fotheringay guitarist Jerry Donahue who got the most out of the sound that was technically possible. LP in gatefold cover (with an LP-sized eight-page booklet in colour)." -Thors Hammer

Then he plunged straight into the sea, the person among the waves. There he lay outstretched for five years, both five years and six, seven years, eight. At last he came to a stop on the surface, by a nameless headland, a treeless land. With his knees he struggled up from the ground, with his arms he turned himself over. He got up to look at the moon, to admire the sun, to observe the Great Bear, to scan the stars." - Three Poplars.

Title: Somewhere Between The Cradle and the Lonely Grave
Format: CDR
Label: Threshold Tapes
Country: UK
Price: $11.00
"Nearly a quarter of a century after they broke up, impossibly obscure UK DIY/minimal wave outfit Slug Acid Freaks have released their first “official” album through the Threshold Tapes label. Formed in 1981 in Andover, Hampshire, by Ken Pearce and Ed Pupplet, and ably assisted by regular guest Andy Broome, the band recorded 5 albums worth of material before their demise in 1986, none of which was ever made available beyond the bands immediate circle of friends. Somewhere Between the Cradle and the Lonely Grave collects over an hour of music from the bands most prolific period, 1984-85. Without being overly deterministic, its possible to regard Slug Acid Freaks, partly, at least, as a product of their environment. In the 1950s and 60s, Andover, an ancient market town, had been designated one of Londons official overspills. The capitals allure was keenly felt, but Andovers Slug population retained a strong enough sense of hometown identity that the metropolitan influence was always recycled with a measure of “provincial” strangeness. If even the most ardent archaeologist of DIY is unlikely ever to have heard of the Slugs, they were nonetheless active during the late heyday of the UKs home taping underground. Employing necessarily minimal means - borrowed Casios, sequencer, basic drum machine (or the rhythm programme of a home organ?) - the band recorded at Kens house on his Dads music centre and a Wien portable tape recorder. While early Human League and Devo are cited as an influence, the Slugs were also contemporaries of many of the 2nd and 3rd wave electronic/industrial bands who took up the baton offered by pioneers like Throbbing Gristle and Cabaret Voltaire. Despite the relative poverty of its means, Slug music is generally more carefully crafted and song-based than that of its DIY or industrial peers, never lapsing into pointless juvenilia, on the one hand, or metal dunce cliché on the other. Somewhere Between the Cradle and the Lonely Grave has been remastered from the original tapes by Andy Broome and is released in a still barely available edition of 33 copies. Fans of Transparent Illusion, early Portion Control, John Bender, Colin Potter, Legendary Pink Dots, Instant Automatons etc., should act now to avoid disappointment! Slug Acid Freaks - seriously, the best thing to come out of Andover since The Troggs and Twinings tea." - Threshold Tapes.

A mixture between devotional ragas and dusty stomp with atmosphere and production that references shoegaze and black metal influences. Ancestral Star, their third LP, marks the evolution of the Barn Owl sound into a territory where it has become wholly its own, transcending the sum of its influences and taking on a life of its own. At the same time, it is a more realized extension of that sound. Caminiti and Porras paid close attention to the composition of each track and its flow within the album as a whole.

Format: LP

Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"Lost in the Glare is Barn Owls second album for Thrill Jockey, and follows quickly on the heels of their acclaimed 12" EP Shadowland. Like Shadowland the album was recorded to tape by Phil Manley in San Franciscos Lucky Cat Studios. Lost in the Glare is made up of material composed over the course of a year and recorded in sessions throughout the winter of 2011. At the heart of the albums sound is the dual guitar interaction between Caminiti and Porras, a spiraling web of interlocking gestures that give way to bone rattling, monolithic progressions and dusty drifts. The mostly finger picked guitars weave in and out of each other in precise movements that recall the hypnotic influence of American minimalists. The harmonium that was prevalent on previous recordings has been replaced on Lost in the Glare with the undulations of a Farfisa organ. The songs here are deep, cosmic excursions. Rich in dynamics, the record possesses a transcendental tone through both a densely layered combination of electric and acoustic instruments and walls of melting amplifiers and feedback alchemy. The lines between strict structure and ordered chaos blur as third-eye opening e-bowed drones explode like beams of light and corrode into crumbling distortion, baking tones that sizzle like brittle bones left in the desert sun." -Thrill Jockey

"The new material on Shadowland takes inspiration from the devotional sounds of Popol Vuh and Alice Coltrane and also possesses the pitch black weightlessness of Fushitsusha and early Tangerine Dream. With waves of guitar soaring over liquid synthesizers tones, Barn Owl combine lush, melancholic serenity with cacophonous, deconstructed guitar to exhibit a visceral meeting of light and dark. Cyclical themes were explored heavily: mantric guitar processions, swelling bass waves, and fluttering tremolo hypnotism. Shadowland was recorded by Phil Manley (Trans Am) in San Francisco. For the overall sound of the EP, the band focused on using monolithic stacks of tube amps and sent guitars and synthesizers alike through them and utilized intense amounts of stereo delay." -Thrill Jockey

Chippendales furious drumming style is ever present and instantly recognizable, but the pop element, which Chippendale explored in more contained ways on earlier Black Pus releases, is more fully integrated. Tracks like 1000 Years and Hear No Evil bear a snarl and a smile, the sound of wild abandon that is both aggressive and inviting. Chippendale creates maximalist music out of the simple elements of drums, vocals, and an oscillator triggered by the kick drum, looping and repeating phrases, and rhythms in a way that can only be called meditative." -Thrill Jockey.

The album is a typical of JTs output in certain ways -- rockers mixed with ballads, all of them crafted with causal elegance -- but there are new elements here as well. In particular, theres an attention to the legacy of later-period T. Rex, which results in tunes that kick total ass. Again Byron Coley, having seen Bolan play during his Zinc Alloy/Zip Gun Boogie period, went so far as to claim that JTs approach to this stuff equals that of the master -- huge riff-based anthems that balance glam dynamics with mystical history on the head of a pin." -Thrill Jockey.

Inspired by swaggering, outrageous and engaging sonic tales like Cowboy Jack Clements Millers Cave, this album features byzantine songs which flow surprisingly quickly and with natural grace. The album opener Razorbacked emits nourish cinematic imagery and twists which are matched with music sparked from a wasted mid 70s cassette from Peaches or Turtles. Numerous musical luminaries, including Freddie King and Clifton Chenier, are invoked and celebrated in song. Other tracks like Cumberland and Battle of the Wilderness are historically detailed and geographically specific chronicles. Dense tones flow from all corners, with guitar sounds reminiscent of Fripp or Manzanera on one end and the pedal steel tones of Emmons and Mooney on another. Beautifully recorded by Jason LaFarge of Seizures Palace in the urban environs of Brooklyn, this album is southern by lyrical setting, country by instrumental arrangement, rocking through its rhythmic heft and most certainly contemporary in attitude." -Thrill Jockey.

Recorded with the help and enthusiasm of David Andrew Sitek, who graciously provided this Daniel Higgs with an environment in which to prosper and enjoy the adventure of recording, or, if you will, the ensnaring of songs as they migrate through time and mind, that they might be heard many places at once, with the singer absent. Song seeds cast abroad, that their message, The Advent Of The Songway, the Way Across, might take root, twist and fruit, light for all. It is the simple hope of this Daniel Higgs that the album Say God may be of any use to the listener, may serve the listener, may accompany the listener in clairaudient fellowship." -Thrill Jockey

"Mountains is Brendon Anderegg and Koen Holtkamp, friends since their middle school days. The duo were brought together by mutual artistic and musical interests, and both ended up at the school of the Art Institute of Chicago. It was during this time that they began exchanging musical ideas and compositions which led to them founding the Apestaartje label in 1999. As their collaborations and individual projects blossomed, they decided to create Mountains as a vehicle for live performance. A love of sculpting sound in front of an audience is at the heart of Mountains. The groups third album, Choral, (their first self-titled release and second album Sewn were both on Apestaartje), is the culmination of their work to date and a balanced mix of the first two efforts. Mountains is often compared to artists such as Brian Eno and Fennesz citing their extended melodies and their unique broad guitar work. Mountains seamlessly blend pastoral electronic sounds with both field recordings and a plethora of acoustic instruments. The resulting soundscapes are broad in scope and rich in detail. The effect is incredibly sublime and hypnotic as the sounds slowly wrap themselves around each other and alter themselves in the mind of the listener. Choral is a uniquely soothing and addicting listening experience and an aural crazy quilt: warm and inviting with many details to discover and explore." - Thrill Jockey.

Title: S/T
Format: LP
Label: Thrill Jockey
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Rhyton is an experimental/improv/psych trio based in Brooklyn that features Dave Shuford (D. Charles Speer and the Helix, No Neck Blues Band), Jimy SeiTang (Psychic Ills) and Spencer Herbst (Messages, Matta Llama) LP version is limited to only 500 copies worldwide and includes a postcard insert and free download coupon. Rhyton pours out a sonic libation unto the liberated world. Waveforms ring out, alternately frozen and blazing, wrenched from an improvisational method. They seek to loosen the gaze so as to widen focus, taking the unity in hand, not grabbing for the micro-constituent. Using the dynamic levels of rock, Rhyton carve out an edifice of sound on their debut LP that centers upon repetition and modal excursion. Recorded and mixed by Jason Meagher at his Black Dirt Studio, this self-titled release is culled from a highly fruitful three day recording session. Seeking to capture the cutting intensity level of their live performances, the band takes the ethos of full engagement. The multiple amp setup at hand in the studio helps imbue the ear with "second hearing". The split stereo, dual amped electric leads utilized throughout the record are best experienced on tracks like "Pontian Grave" and "Teke" where phase and tremolo patterns bounce and surge from ear to ear, warping senses of both time and space. These two distinct sound sources are a manifestation of dual perspectives derived from a single emanation: this is not the fracturing of a voice, but rather its multiplying into a unified but complimentary chorale as different delay lengths and distortion levels cohere into an ensemble greater than its parts. On "Dale Odaliski" the rock trio trappings are stripped away as a booming tom tom, oscillators and delay loops evoke a kind technological primitivism that seems akin to a message from a shattered, distant future. Extreme attention to auditory detail is apparent throughout the album, as blasts of varied gain stages writhe within fields of phased cymbals and bass throbs. Taken from repose to ekstasis - as mental impulse reigns above, so the body below records. Rhyton is a band with an organic genesis, born from late night rap sessions at a local Brooklyn watering hole. Heads of certain vibe gathered together to tap into the underlying flux form of transportational music. Dave Shuford (D. Charles Speer, No Neck Blues Band) had been knee deep in research and practice in the realm of middle eastern musics during the recording of his solo LP Arghiledes. From that album, the track "The Heavy Heart of Ando-Yeap" was used as a leaping off point for the gestation of Rhyton. Shuford brought his personal selection of varied string instruments to the table, seeking to create a heavier electric syntax for mandolin, saz and baritone guitar. Jimy SeiTang (Psychic Ills) emerged as a sonic surgeon, creating wave patterns with his bass and pulses of tape delay tales. Spencer Herbst (Messages, Matta Llama) injected his flowing, highly energetic style of percussion and brought in visual conundrums by way of videocassette. An instant near-telepathic bond was established, making improvisations seem like composed forays even to the closest confidants. With variants and heads situated as a point of departure, Rhyton explores the inner workings of the ear and seeks the latent brain bulge within the listener." -Thrill Jockey.

Title: Ragged and Right
Format: 12"
Label: Thrill Jockey
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"This slab of gripping sound was brought about by Jack Roses exuberant love of lowdown music. Inspired by the Mordicai Jones/Link Wray 3 Track Shack sessions, the idea for this collaboration was germinated while Rose was traveling through the heartland on a tour with D. Charles Speer & the Helix in spring 2008. Musicians used to the road are familiar with the phenomenon wherein a certain tape or recording becomes the thematic soundtrack to the tour at hand. In this case, daily doses of Scorpio Woman and In the Pines as performed by Link Wray became the touchstones for their travels together. Jack got so excited by the vibes emanating from these songs that he thought to break with his usual acoustic approach and get some electricity in his life again. So he enlisted the Speer band to join in some unhinged and unrepentant fun in the studio. Recorded using an all live, no overdub approach, the resultant session was deemed an all time favorite experience by everyone lucky enough to partake in it. A gleaming bottle of Buffalo Trace helped shepherd us through the dark hours of the night, and in turn that spirit animal adorns the front cover of the record. As producer, Jason Meagher was able to capture the visceral rough and tumble feel that invigorated his Black Dirt Studio in the dog days of August 2008. Featuring the original lineup of D. Charles Speer & the Helix in peak form and rare lap steel and Telecaster stylings from Rose, Ragged And Right displays a vibrancy and depth of feeling that is striking and unforgettable." -Thrill Jockey

"It is easy to see why these would appeal to Wooden Shjips, as their music lends itself to exploration. It is both transformative and transporting, the sum being far greater than its parts. The steady driving rhythms are the elliptical motion machine driven by the often thick and distorted guitar lines, melodic and boundless. Where they may lead cannot be anticipated but following them is exhilarating. It is all about getting there, the destination, while the experience of getting there is an adventure. It is the guitar lines that guide both the listener and the band on the literal and metaphorical journey into the vastness. The ghostly vocals, obscured by dense layers of instruments surrounding them, are alluring with their airy mystery. This elusive quality further draws the listener in, while they attempt to grasp at their meaning. While indebted to both the psych music of the 60s and mid-70s, electric Neil Young, and even the induced travels of Spacemen 3, the Wooden Shjips music is modern and in every way their own. West is an epic journey to the edge and beyond." -Thrill Jockey

"Pirates In Care of the BEING Dilloway, Tapes, and Delay: Pirates, Rotten Teeth, and Treasure. All go hand in hook hand. AAARRGGHHHHHHH! This new platter by Rad Dad Dilloway is full of buried gold, or rather tape heads covered in used ancient kitty litter, whose decoded message leads you to the audio gold pit hidden deep within the tape loops. Chain Shot is my inzano pick of the thick Dillo discography. Its way relaxed and weirdo. I mean, if you cut a circle-ish shape out of wood from a haunted pirate boat, tied a human bonechain around it and dragged it on the surface of the ocean around the world four times, buried into hot sand for 1000 years and then stuck it on your turntable... it wouldnt sound any different. Chain Shot is an oddity cause the tapes provide the pacing, you tell by the woodpecker attack (or a pirate tapping against glass before they raid your peaceful vessel) near the middle section of side one and the ENDLESS churning loop at the end of Execution Dock. Add a dash of Thighbone Horn wail here and there, find the rarest homemade mixers and loop machines from 1943 and the recipe could be this LP which is also known as THREE MEDIATIONS FOR THREE TAPE LOOPS WITHIN SLO MIND. After jamming this mutha a bunch, I found it fit well into a lot of house-moods: i.e., vacuuming, sewing, power doodle sessions, convincing your spouse there aint magic gremlins who clean the house while she sleeps the day away, candle burning, shit-everything. Could this be a mature Dilloway? Hell gnaw, this sound disc is still teetering on a restless energy ocean -- just mad focused and... simple... direct... like a checking account based on pirate bones and jugs of fermented PEE WINE. Chain Shot has a lot of depth to it -- its as much DROLL YANKEE as it is BLACK GNOME... shit, I can easily file this wax in my environments/CBS Library/machine sound/rail road noise/animal sounds/nature LP section (which is AS BIG as Dilloways, if you take out the military boot camp sound section) and it would fit right in. Its a BOAT OCEAN LURKING FRIGHTMARE LP. Like when a crazy old boat goes on some crazy old mission and it get frozen in the ocean near the North Pole, the crew runs outta food and sees nutzo ICE PIRATES circling the ship slowly in the freezing mist. Close your eyes, let your rat mind take off on its own weirdo adventure. Im mad stoked this Dilloway LP is pressed on wax forever, cause now that quicksand is extinct apparently... I can still just jam Execution Dock at 4:00 AM on a lonely winter night and sink slowly in the MSG-ridden HISS crawling within the rotten grooves... and disappear without a trace.

"Debut record from Valencia, Spains obscure CABALLO TRIPODE, a project formed and recorded during a hiatus by LE JONATHAN REILLY members about two years ago, and now a fully functioning band alongside LJR. Caballo Tripodes debut LP is an exercise in contrasting rustic-Spanish-folk and garage rock with deliberately futuristic chaos, time issues, and other various "unexpected choices" of all shapes and colors. A homespun psychedelic result with a wildness similar to Meercazs spacey rockscapes. Here we have songs that position themselves on a garage and surf backdrop only to depart right into a much deeper bag of tricks. All this while theyve kept one foot down on their romantic sensibilities, regional (Valencia, Spain) vibes and good ole crunchy guitars. So it never floats off into outer space either. A very unique and regional take on what "garage" and "surf" record can actually become in a post-garage and surf world that rarely attempts honest retooling efforts in their old shops." - Tic Tac Totally.

It still has the carefree, roaming verse and delivers those girl group harmonies, but eventually heads into a fractured, upbeat chorus with a guitar line that weirdly, lightly stabs home the repeated "gotta get back to you". The flip, "WCK" is a totally carefree example of the harmonic melodies but played shambolic as hell and soaked in buzzsaw-bass from top to bottom. TGAD separates themselves from so many other "oh lets do a girl band" bands in that they are at once playing the roles of "super delicate" and "carefree & dark" (even a bit twisted in moments).

"Black Dice formed during the spring of 1997 in Providence, Rhode Island, as a loud, chaotic mix of early-80s-inspired thrash and harsh noise experimentation. By the fall of 2001, the unorthodox instrumentation continued to evolve, and an emphasis on signal processing provided a broader range of sounds to work with. While volume and physical presence of sound remained crucial, melody and repetition became key elements that songs were composed upon. The shift in focus introduced a new gentle and tuneful quality to the intense, brash music. Currently, the music retains elements of noise and proto-industrial experimentation, while organically suggesting minimal, ambient electronic, and psychedelic ideas, as well as those of tropicalia and dub. Black Dice is now the organized presentation of improvised sound, assembled into deliberate structures based on visual concepts." - Tigerbeat6. 2002 release.

Label: Tiliqua
Country: Japan
Price: $31.00
"The start of a new series focusing on lost and obscure sonic treasures birthed out of the underbelly of Japans New Rock revolution during the period 1969-1978 is spearheaded by the long announced reissue of one of the rarest discs to seep out of that seedy, incestuous scene. Ishikawa Akira & Count Buffalos Uganda: Afurikan Rokku no Yoake originally saw the light of day on February 5th, 1972 on Toshiba Records as part of their 4 Channel Q.M. Sound series but quickly sank into the depths obscurity, making that only a handful of copies were actually sold while the remaining stock was withdrawn due to very depressing sales and eventually melted down and destroyed. The disc remained a well kept secret for all these years and only a small circle of die-hard music lovers have ever seen an actual original copy, making it these days one of the most treasured and hunted down Japanese rock artifacts. A couple of years ago a bootleg LP edition of the LP came out, sadly sounding quite mediocre but nevertheless rejuvenating a new awareness for the album. Still, rumors as to who were the actual performers on the album floated around freely since the group was simply listed as Count Buffalo with no detailed breakdown of who actually played on the album, and as a result, there has been much fevered speculation over the years. Therefore, Tiliqua Records thought it wise to release this sonic gem properly -- they hunted down the license, unraveled the legal entanglements, acquired access to the original mastertapes and subsequently also took on the quest to track down the actual players involved. So now, with this fully-authorized reissue, we can finally reveal the full line-up or the key players involved and add some insight into the records background, thanks to the kind participation of Ugandas composer, Mr. Muraoka Takeru. Musically speaking, Ishikawa Akira & Count Buffalos Uganda - Afurikan Rokku no Yoake is a vicious psychedelic whirlwind monster of a disc where primitive Afro-spiritual and tribal ethnic percussive blow-outs cross-pollinate with lysergic New Rock fuzz-a-delic dementia, stirring up enough dust and boulders like two-barreled guns coming out of the demon hole. Still, Uganda is more than just that, and although it is deceptively intense, it is simultaneously casual in feel yet meticulous in its musical detail and lyrical economy. And seen in retrospect, I can now proclaim that this album stands shoulder-to-shoulder with the best records of that golden era, and it was one of Japans 1970s underground scenes defining moments. In short. it is a totally lethal slide that does not fail to create an arresting listening experience. As is the case with all of Tiliqua Records releases, this one is also crafted out with meticulous care and eye for detail. The CD comes housed in a miniature version of the actual slim-cased LP box set, complete with obi and extensive 8-paged Japanese/ English liner notes, illustrated with some archival footage. One-time only, very limited press, housed in a sturdy hard card mini-LP styled slim box set-styled gatefold jacket. Digitally remastered from the original master tapes and graced with faithfully reproduced artwork (although slightly adapted for the single CD box set version) and obi. One-time limited press due to the nature of the box set jacket." - Tiliqua.

Price: $45.00
"Released in collaboration with Pedal Records. Limited edition LP of 250 copies housed in a sturdy and heavy textured jacket. The music of this LP is comprised out of Asos first demo/home recordings dating back to 1997. The material predates her initial "Umeromono" CDs contents. Unlike "Umeromono", the music she slowly breathes into being through her slow-motion like less is more aesthetic on this LP-set sounds even more fragile and desolate than her current recordings. This is partly due to the fact that Aso recorded the whole affair in her bedroom, deploying all the instruments herself and capturing the rudimentary gracefulness of her acid folk escapades directly to tape. The overall atmosphere has a strong low-fi fragrance hovering over it without ever compromising the rich musical texture Aso succeeds in conveying out of her stripped-to-the-bare minimum textural approach. The general result is one of organic and sincere beauty, embodying fragility reminiscent to a dew-covered spiders web. This quality gets even intensified by her soft-poetic angel-voiced whisperings and her fragile, fleeting like husky voice breathing out an erotic naivete that is lyrical as well as introverted, making it in its own humble way nearly a thing of perfection. She is destined to be one of the unsung queens of the female acid folk pantheon and this recording will be one of its Holy Grails. The disc is housed in a beautiful, heavy textured jacket, doing the music justice. Liner notes by Ishihara You (Stars, White Heaven). A beauty to behold and to hear. The record is a one time only limited pressing and will not be reissued on CD or any other format. So acting quickly may be a keyword here.

"Ltd edition LP of their 2nd release following their debute on PSF. Killer release if I say so myself. Imagine La Monte Young crossbreeding with Takayanagi Masayuki. The disc is made up out of 2 sidelong tracks that entwine around a minimal music aesthetic junked up with an improvisational free jazz like exploratory approach. The panoramic sonic outcome floats somewhere between the controlled burn of a detuned jet engine and the boundless fury of nomadic hordes on a rampage through the open Mongolian plains. Sucking in influences as wide ranging as Takayanagi, La Monte Young, esoteric Buddhist ritualistic mantras, Gagaku and a free-form psychedelic aesthetic, Hasegawa Shizuo succeeds brilliantly in resonating out a Dionysian vibration of harmonical tones pregnant with a pulsating intensity. Without a doubt one of the most interesting and intuitive sounds graced with a shamanistic sense of poetry to emerge out of deep subteranean belly of Tokyo. Still undetected but sure to blow headz worldwide. One time only edition of 400 copies housed in thicker than life jacket and high quality Japan pressed vinyl. LP only." - Tiliqua.

Title: Jola Rota
Format: CD
Label: Tiliqua
Country: Japan
Price: $29.00
"First time official reissue of one of Swedens greatest and sadly unknown psychedelic treasure is this sole album by Joakim Skogsberg out of 1971. Tiliqua acquired the exclusive rights to this gem and this reissue comes with a remastered sound taken directly from the original master tapes and with the kind assistance of Mr. Joakim Skogsberg himself. The album Jola Rota is about Joakim Skogsbergs love for the grandiose Swedish landscapes, which has put its imprint upon his songs. On Jola Rota Joakim single-handedly created a minimal psychedelic and acid folk masterpiece infused with incredible soundscapes of derailed fuzzed out violins, soaring guitars, rattling hand percussion, droning vocals and pulsating bass rhythms, complimented by Joakims jolor, a special singing style with roots in an ancient Swedish tradition of folk music. The album was for the most part recorded out in the woods, with a portable Nagra reel-to-reel tape recorder and a simple Philips cassette recorder. Upon completion it was suggested for the album to appear on Gump Records, a subsidiary of Metronome. The music was just too underground and weird to be in Metronomes register. Apart from Joakims original recordings, some overdubs and effects were done in the studio during the autumn of 1971. Some of the droning sounds on the record were recorded in a tiny closet in Kärrtorp; a suburb to Stockholm where Joakim was living at the time. The album was pressed into approximately 1000 copies and only about 300 to 400 copies were actually sold. The rest of them were melted down and used in the pressing of other Gump records, making Jola Rota a much rumored and sought after Swedish droned-out and mesmerizing psychedelic artifact. This edition Jola Rota comes housed in high quality sturdy hard card mini-LP styled gatefold sleeve. Original artwork is faithfully reproduced and previously unpublished archival pictures can be found within the liner notes and gatefold. The liner notes are by the hand of Adam Gustafsson. Digitally remastered from the original master tapes and graced with faithfully reproduced artwork and obi. One time only limited pressing."-Tiliqua

Price: $30.00
"From around 1998 Maso Yamazaki started to incorporate trippy, spacey electronic elements into Masonna performances. In order to better pursue these elements alone, he started Space Machine in 2000, his self-labeled analog electronic cosmic sound project. For as long as he had been performing under the Masonna moniker, Yamazaki had been ardent fan of early electronic music from the 50s and 60s, and in order to research the impact that electronic sounds had upon the spiritual lineage audible in sixties US and British psychedelic music and seventies krautrock, Yamazaki began collecting analog synthesizers and vintage electronic equipment. He continuously experimented with these instruments in his home studio, and while groping towards an understanding he discovered a new direction for his own music, a direction different from his work as Masonna. This third Space Machine release, which is aptly named 3, is a double vinyl album that consists of solo excursions by Yamazaki in his home studio. The release is limited to an edition of 500." - Tiliqua.

Title: Independence - Tread On Sure Ground
Format: CD
Label: Tiliqua
Country: Japan
Price: $26.00
"New release in Tiliqua Records ongoing Archival Series is this quintessential album by Takayanagi Masayuki. It was his debut recording as a leader with his newly erected unit The New Directions, a trio consisting out of bassist Yoshizawa and drummer Toyozumi "Sabu" Yoshisaburo. Recorded at the Teichiku Kaikan studios on 18 September 1969 (released in 1970), "Independence �?? Tread on Sure Ground," is largely regarded as the first true classic of Japanese free jazz. The group thrashes out an entirely new Japanese methodology for improvisation based on Takayanagis theories about progressive art. As Alan Cummings explains in his liner notes, the groups sonic outburst is pregnant with an urgent intensity similar to a violent rotating windstorm. "An electric guitar string is pinged with a sour and markedly unlovely resonance. It is left to fade away naturally, its dying whisper replaced with a wavering feedback tone that grows steadily in volume and thickness. Against the slow feedback wave, a sudden loud percussive crash, urgent staccato rolls across the toms, and the dry rasp of a rattle. A choppy, non-sequential series of chords from the guitar, still mouth-puckeringly bitter is set against the warmer resonance of an alternately bowed and plucked double bass. Each instrument sounds self-contained, like lunar bodies spinning on their own axes at different tempos, but locked together by unfathomably complex rules of motion. Additional percussive rattles and scrapes have been overdubbed to fill in the blank space. Tendrils of feedback snake in and out, like cosmic dust from some cataclysmic celestial event. The playing is exploratory and deliberate, technically adept and keenly judged, easily sustaining interest and motion across the tracks eleven minutes. Its sense of focused concentration is more akin to the European free improvisation of AMM or The Spontaneous Music Ensemble than the violent ecstasies of American fire music.�?� - Alan Cummings �?? from the liner notes. The CD reissue includes also the bonus track �??Mass Projection�?� which was originally issued on the compilation album Guitar Workshop (Teichiku, 1970). This CD is housed in a high quality mini-LP styled gatefold sleeve, completed with obi and extensive 4-paged illuminating liner notes by Alan Cummings. Original artwork is faithfully reproduced.

We have the last of the 50 copies available from the label to sell for the USA market.� Satoru� is Tomokawa Kazukis first ever LP release in over 20 years time and Tiliqua Records is proud to be able to release this sonic gem. � Satoru� � was previously only available as part of the 13 CD Box set that PSF Records put out some years ago and has never been available outside of the set. Now �Satoru� is finally available apart from the illustrious box and is been rebirthed as an LP, housed in sturdy and heavy jacket adorned with Tomokawas artwork. Coming with the LP is a two-paged insert printed on high quality glossy paper. It contains liner notes penned down by Alan Cummings and Johan Wellens, notes that shed some clarity on Tomokawas universe, historical background, poetic qualities and the position he takes in within a long line of historical Japanese poets. In order to get a glimpse of the aural regions this album will steer into, this is an as close a comparison one can have using plain words. �There is a raw immediacy to Tomokawas performances that effortlessly hurdles many linguistic barriers, speaking direct to the listeners nerves and emotions� � Tomokawas voice constantly storms against the confines of his own vaguely symbolist words, harshly screaming or melodically moaning, the emotional voltage that courses through his delivery constantly threatening to melt their neural circuitry. � (AC) and � Tomokawa succeeds in triggering apocalyptic waves of emotionalism through the tiniest gestures exhorted from his guttural howls and fevered guitar strummings. Keeping a razor-sharp balance between self-tormenting pained gloominess and soul-searching poetic lyricism he manages to create a tense and innovative acoustic music, sounding simultaneously ancient and contemporaneously authentic. And it is here that his especial strength resides, a music fully drenched in the past, yet so attuned to the present moment. His snarling howl and single syllable guttural moans seem to bridge time and space, epoch and eras; hermetic yowls recalling Enka crooners, circus sideshow barkers, carnival callers, Nikkatsu movie gangsters and soft-hearted balladeers, all embodied in the persona of Tomokawa Kazuki� - From the liner notes. One time only press of 450 copies.

"Tiliqua Records is psyched about being able to present a whole new audience and generation with the lysergic beauty of the Tree Peoples sole recorded artifact, a privately released acid folk gem out of 1979. In times when people are all getting excited about media-created scenes like ⿿New Weird America⿝ and ⿿Freak Folk⿝, they seem to overlook the fact that such music was already being created decades ago. The Tree People is evidence of such a splash of creativity that sadly enough was doomed to disappear within the cracks of obscurity. Until now. Tiliqua was granted the opportunity to restore this gem and with the kind collaboration of Mr. Cohen of the Tree People, who provided me with the master tapes and a seemingly unlimited support, Tiliqua was able to prepare this reissue. To me, this album is one of the singular most beautiful gems to have crossed my path and words always fall short in an attempt to describe the aural sensation it unleashes. ⿿Upon listening today this hushed and intimate feeling still resonates through the music ⿿ the record possesses an extraordinarily potent atmosphere that still intoxicates the senses after so many years. Over a combustible backing dominated by shimmering strings, bone-shaking hand percussion rhythms, and quivering sensuous threads of eastern-toned flute playing, the group succeeded in concocting up a syncretic combination of meditative Indian raga, western folk stylings and idiosyncratic melodic ideas. The music breathes out intimacy and communicates with a rare directness - hooking you instantly with sheer aural bliss derived from the melody, from the flowing beat, from the sound of the words and syllables and of all those separate elements interacting with each other, rendered into a concentrated, gracious flow of lunar notes. The albums compositions have so many hidden qualities, all breathing out deep and affectionate sentiments that reveal, just like a lotus flower centered on the axis with its petals unfolding towards the circumference, a streamlined adhesion towards the groups own singular creed. Listen to it and you may feel like awakening from a deep slumber, your unconsciousness leaking away as aspects of reality slowly mix in with the rest of your already blurred mindset.⿝ First time ever official reissue, housed in a sturdy mini-LP styled gatefold sleeve." - Tiliqua.

"Japanese-born Masayoshi Urabe is a saxophonist who boasts a fearsome sound but, unlike Arthur Doyle, he incorporates long blocks of stony silence into his music. On Urklang - his latest solo disc, which presents two live performances, one on alto, the other on soprano - he painstakingly carves these silences into huge, ominous icebergs. The overall effect is such that even the slightest cry from his horn seems impossibly portentous, especially when he roars through the extremes of the altos upper register." - David Keenan.

Price: $33.00
"First ever reissue of this hopelessly rare and obscure 1971 rural Virginia private press folk masterpiece. A true anomaly in the seemingly bottomless world of self released albums, this one charts a truly unique realm all its own. While the sound itself may draw some clear influence from classics of the day, even lifting the band name from a song by the band, the mood & vibe here is ponderously uncharted territory, seemingly birthed complete from some parallel sonic reality. Crude lo-fi metaphysical basement folk rock filtered through a deeply southern gothic/Appalachian/Americana band aesthetic and executed in the purest, most sincere, spontaneous, vibe-thick sense possible. The atmosphere trapped in these grooves is truly as strong as it gets and is sure to engulf any open-minded listener given half a chance. The near magical power of the album seems to lay in its extreme polarization; on the one hand there is a fully developed lyrical depth and intellect thats profoundly poetic, even novelistic, yet the music & recording is shockingly raw, unhinged, completely unselfconscious, and downright weird. Its a dusty, creaky, ebb & flow of clackity percussion, acoustic strum, shaky low-watt electric guitar licks, occasional floorboard rattling bass, and thick southern drawl. Even the recording quality has a bizarre lo-fi character of its own, with some sounds seeming to barely hit the tape at all, while others are wildly overblown, wrapping the whole deal in a gauzy tape hiss fog, with hints of garagy distortion. The album progresses with a casual but surprisingly purposeful intent, hitting an intimately mystical, visionary, dream-like arc through the entire second side of the record and ending in complete dissipation. All taken together its a seriously teleportive trip to a flicker in time & place that is really quite special. The scratchy textless black & white band photo cover art suites the album perfectly: striking yet vague, timeless yet ancient, simple yet mysterious. Pressed on highest quality 180gm virgin vinyl and packaged in an exact reproduction heavy old-style cover, with exact repro labels. Also includes a double-sided heavy stock insert with new liner notes from main songwriter and vocalist Roger Mannon, as well as introductory notes from band scholar and devoted fan Jack D. Fleischer.

"First ever reissue, deluxe and legit, of this quite rare 1976 southern California private press gem. Its a strange, fantastical, and totally distinct album that will have you sucked in almost instantly. This one is extremely hard to pin down - think something like a loner powerpop rock opus, heavy on the psychedelic production values, studio dreamer vibes, and timeless hooks. The songs are unusual but infectious, the production is breezy and expansive but not polished, and the vocals are constantly morphing yet always effective. In fact, the hazy chameleon-like personality here might be one of the best things going for the album, as not only does Eddie seem to be channelling a handful of different vocalists, but the whole mood and sound shifts around unexpectedly as well. Even the potential low points somehow work, and there are surprises around every turn. The often questioning, self-reflective lyrics add yet another layer of mystique to the trip. Musically the mellowest points hover around gorgeous, airy, rural-tinged, floating psychedelia with beautifully layered acoustic & electric guitars, tinkling keys, and lush mellotron. When things pick up theyre truly rocking, with tight punchy rhythms and Eddie firing off big chunky guitar riffs like hes playing to the packed stadium behind his third eye. All the studio tricks at hand are put to full use with sweet Leslie guitar effects, special tones, backwards solos, elaborate multi-tracked sound fields, and some of the most wonderfully bent synthesizer soloing ever laid to tape.

"First ever reissue of this rare and obscure French private press LP from 1976. More of a one-off happening then an actual band, the album resulted from the one only meeting of the group for a single overnight champagne-fueled session. As unlikely as it seems, somebody thought to roll some tape, and a very special evening was captured pressed to vinyl. Opening with a gorgeous drifting instrumental, and centered around three long jaw-dropping acid folk originals, the album is filled out by wild romps though traditional folk songs. All English lyrics, female backing vocal, two acoustic guitars, dulcimer, autoharp, banjo, and some especially beautiful snaky flute work. The original compositions are truly magical: gently flowing and beautifully pastoral, but with an eerie, druggy, edginess. Think The Book of Am minus the sunshine electricity and youll be in the right zone. The trad folk cuts on the other hand are nearly as cool: joyous, dirty, and totally ragged music by for the people. No folk boom pretense on display, just ageless tunes, fast pickin and wild drunken wooziness, like some sort of reckless gypsy hoe-down. Everything here is totally steeped in a damp, pagan/mystical basement atmosphere, that combined with the raw direct-to-tape, no overdubs/mixing execution perfectly crude, haunting cover art make for a very distinct whole. Presented here our version is hand screenprinted just like the original, with a paste-on back cover reproduction of the original mimeograph, all on a heavy weight vintage style cover.

"the debut release from texas favorite psychedelic voyagers, on vinyl for the first time ever. originally self released as an ultra-limited cassette way back in 1992, it was later reissued on the bands own wholly other imprint in a much edited form, only to go out of print again. here the original cassette track list and sequence is restored, minus too covers songs. a historic milestone in the story of the contemporary underground, as well as an extremely mind-melting dose of outsider drone/folk/psych in its own right. the duo of tom & christina carter here managed to wrap their fingers and minds around a whole slew of sonic vibrations, while at the same time clearly charting their own low-key and unique course. tapping into about every slant of damaged texas exploration, this massive recording flows through haunting lo-fi slow motion folk, full-blown, fuzzed-out spacerock, beautiful outsider acid psych, fizzing drone experimentation, loose blues forms and plenty of higher minded guitar improvisation, all with a certain shining wide-eyed bliss. and yes, chistinas voice was just as jaw dropping then as it is now... while worlds away from charalambides recent outings on one level, those sonic tendrils trace a clear line back to the sweet seeds planted here... pressed on two massive slabs of audiophile 180 gram vinyl, and packaged in a beautiful silver & clear ink letterpressed tri-fold cover, on heavy olive green art paper, with extensive notes by tom carter. hand numbered edition of 800 copies." - Time-Lag.

Title: Rosa De Sangue
Format: LP
Label: Time-Lag
Country: USA
Price: $31.00
"Deluxe first ever reissue of this Brazilian private press monster rarity. Originally custom pressed in 1980, Rosa De Sangue is the closing chapter of the amazing Recife psychedelic movement that flourished and centered around the work of Lula Cortes, beginning in 1973 with the release of Satwa, and the creation of Abracadabra, Lulas loose art/music/design collective. Leading up to 1980 Lula had produced and privately released Satwa in 1973 (Brazils first private press LP) as well as Marconi Notaros No Sub Reino Dos Metazoarios LP that same year (featuring the recording debut of Ze Ramalho). He then started the legendary but incredibly short lived Solar label, releasing only two albums: 1975s Paebiru double album, and a year later the lone album by Flaviola. As if that wasnt enough, he was also heavily involved in other productions and performed on many seminal albums coming out of the region, including many collaborations with Alceu Valenca. By the close of the 70s the heavily utilized Rozemblit recording studio/pressing plant had been destroyed by repeated floods, Abracadabra had run its course, and along with Lulas marriage, the Solar label was no more. So Rosa De Sangue was conceived as a bookend and tribute to this closing era; as Lula himself states I want to close all of this with a golden key. And a golden key it is. Entering a small local studio with a head full of songs and his freshly road tested mountains band, Lula created an album simply overflowing with ideas. Along with his power trio backing, he was further assisted by many old friends dropping in, including, among many others: Alceu Valenca, Flaviola, Ze De Flauta and Paulo Rafael. With hints of the past era and of things to come, it is a truly wild audio experience, covering many styles and moods. From crazed ethno folkrock, to magical, gentle, jungle folk psych zones, to hard hitting, coke dusted fuzz rock, to insane mutant disco dance floor groove, to tweaked Americana, to acid vocal raga trance, and way beyond. All throughout Lulas beautiful tricordio work pins things down, and for the first time he is the main vocalist (this is, after all, his first solo album!) His is a smoke and booze steeped voice darting between crazed abandon, deep sadness, and glowing soulful humor. When things are mellow, you could easily imagine youre hearing an outtake from Marconi Notaro or Paebiru, but the next moment youre dropped into a raging street party or dimly lit booze drenched bar scene vibe. Frenzied guitars all over, including some tough fuzz, as well as powerful rolling bass groove, soaring violin, moog weirdness, dusted backup vocals, and great drum kit/regional percussion interplay. Psychedelic at heart, but brimming with flashes of tropicalia, punk, prog, and pure hot blooded rock and roll. A bizarre and amazing album. But of course, the story doesnt end there. At some point while the album was being recorded and pressed, Lula signed a major label contact which would produce 1981s far tamer O Gosto Novo Da Vida LP. When his new label got wind of Rosa De Sangues eminent release, they were displeased to say the least. As soon as the pressing was complete, the entire small edition was seized and destroyed, making this album by far Brazils rarest. So rare, in fact, that even among the most hardcore Brazilian collectors the original LP is often only rumored to exist, often cited as unreleased. A few copies did however survive, and now, 29 years later, the world can finally hear this golden key from a truly visionary artist. Packaged in a heavy vintage style cover with exact reproduction original artwork, including the huge full color, double sided, foldout poster insert, plus an extra insert featuring new liner notes from Lula Cortes as well as translated song titles. 180gm audiophile virgin vinyl pressing with exact repro label art.

Title: Both Sides of the Coin
Format: LP
Label: Time-Lag
Country: USA
Price: $34.00
"Deluxe reissue of this totally unknown New England teenage folk private press from 1971. Originally released by the artist herself as a demo only blank cover edition of 100 copies. Just out of high school and hoping somebody might pay attention, the LP slipped through the cracks, the chapter closed, and life moved forward on a different course. But the album left behind stands as a true female loner folk gem, of which there arent many at all. Just Ellies humbly intimate vocals and her harp-like self taught finger-picked guitar playing, plus some lovely pastoral flute by a friend on a handful of tracks. The sounds are straight from the tuned-in melancholy teenage mind, reeling from the mind expansion of the 60s, but also the excesses. Deeply reflective, poetic and searching lyrics of love/nature/peace playing out in real time against stark reality/longing /loss, and balanced at the very edge of the void. The aching innocence of youth tempered by a biting contempt for all things false. In the liner notes Ellie mentions only practicing under a blanket, and theres an up-close, lo-fi, almost voyeuristic realism/fragility here thats quite special. A complex and personal trip that takes some time and attention to fully unfold. Once it does, it will be no surprise that Ellie went on to build geodesic domes and become a professional midwife, as that same unique spirit is already deeply embedded here. A really wonderful album were happy to help finally reach some receptive ears. The original had no cover art, so weve kept the packaging suitably stark and mysterious, yet quite exquisite: each heavyweight vintage style cover is individually hand-bound in leather textured art paper, with the only graphics being a mounted 5x7 inch black and white photo print portrait of Ellie from 1970. Pressed on 180 gram virgin vinyl, with exact reproduction labels and a thick insert with new liner notes by Ellie, plus more vintage photos. Edition of 300 copies, in two cover color/texture variations (black or burgundy)." -Time-Lag.

"First ever reissue of this massively cool and hideously rare 1973 rural Pennsylvania private press jewel, originally released on the legendary RPC custom label in an edition of only 25 copies. The sound is essentially split between the two dominate modes of polarized male youth psyche: alternating moody, dejected, love scorned, melancholy folkrock with wasted, howling, proto-punk garage fuzz brain fry. All together its a totally sincere lost in time vibe, delivered with gobs of naive charm and executed with almost zero resources. The album was recorded and mixed direct to tape in just a few hours, without overdubs or even the option to mix down. You can hear the clearly unprepared recording engineer frantically flipping switches and tweaking knobs in a state of near panic as these kids tear furiously through a rapid fire album worth of original songs, always teetering on the edge of total collapse, yet never quite imploding. While the end results are, to say he least, very crude, the band pulls together a distinct and wonderful sound. Underpinned by Ken Turcics dry, low, rubbery bass lines and Greg Cheplicks wildly raw and cool drumming (hes only 15 at the time) Dennis Cheplick (Gregs older brother) and Jack Sarvis trade off vocal duties, guitars licks, and writing credit. Rhythm guitars chug excitedly, acoustic 12-string adds a sweet, chiming, folky texture, and Sarvis switches between a great, slightly surf-tinged ringing reverb tone and frenetic fuzz figures. Pressed on highest quality 180 gram virgin vinyl. Packaged in an exact reproduction heavy weight reverse tip-on cover, with exact repro label art, a heavy double sided insert with loads of vintage color photos and extensive liner notes, plus a bonus heavy vinyl 45 rpm 7-inch.

"Digital version of the out-of-print LP. At long last, theres finally a full length Elephant Micah album born into this world. Why it took so many years will remain a mystery, cuz as far as were concerned, Elephant Micah should have been a household name for years now. Stripped of all superfluous sound, and presented with the sort of stark realness that creates a deeply psychedelic mood without being in the least bit overt. Joe OConnell has always been at the top of our favorite contemporary songwriters, and here the songs truly take center stage for the first time. Recorded direct to hand-held cassette recorder using only acoustic guitar and vocals, with just sparse backing from a little percussion, cello, electric piano and double-tracked vocals, the gauzy overdubs of past releases have all but vanished here. At the same time, the lyrical depth & intimacy have easily doubled, creating some of the most affecting country-tinged melancholy weve ever laid ears on. Hushed, heartaching and utterly timeless. And it just gets better with every listen. The voyeuristic pureness is further enhanced by hissy near-haiku spoken fragments of tape that pop up between songs throughout the album. Heavy mini LP style craft paper gatefold cover with elusive, ghostly, two-color offset printing, Plus a double-sided fold out insert & woven Japanese inner sleeves." - Time-Lag.

"Well let Joe himself shed a little light here: touring the East Coast in 2003, someone asked, youre from Indiana - have you ever heard of the Bible Bird man? I hadnt, so I did some research. His video had already been stolen from the library at Earlham College, but I stole it back and returned it. I began to imagine what the musical equivalent of his evangelical bird act might sound like. I wrote a song about the Bird Man, thinking of releasing it as a re-issue of a central Indiana country-gospel group that had never existed - the Bible Birds. Then I thought maybe I would do an Elephant Micah album of covers originally written by this (non-existent) Bible Birds band. In the end of course the concept kind of dissipated and it just became an Elephant Micah album. I recruited Beth Remis from Static Films (and more recently Pillars And Tongues) to help arrange/sing harmonies for the songs, and generally bring them up to pseudo-gospel snuff. We played the songs around the upper midwest once with Ben Racher on a portable pump organ and Jason Henn on upright bass. All of us got together in Indianapolis in 2006 and recorded this. I drove everyone crazy with my insistence on weird recording methods. I think i was kind of trying to approximate the timbres of the hymn sing broadcast on Salem, Indianas WSLM. Who knows? I was critical of the results and didnt finalize them for several years. Here it is finally, a kind of prequel companion to the Hindu Windmills (Time-Lag 035) album. -- Joe OConnell 2010. So there you have it. An overlooked chapter from this wonderful artist finally seeing the light of day, and a perfect companion piece to the highly praised Hindu Windmills album.

"First ever vinyl edition of this album, originally released in NZ as a tiny cdr edition on Alastair Galbraiths Next Best Way label in 2008, four years before the release of Felt. Overall a more polarized and pleasantly tumultuous listen compared with the starkly beautiful Felt, but revealing just as much subtle grace. Playing out as though occasionally whipped by a salty wind, with gusts of psychedelic noise rising here & there to engulf these fragile poetic songs, sending them infinitely outward. A more externalized & expansive listening experience then the inward stillness of Felt, and a perfect mirrored pair to the later. These songs will beam deep into your unconscious before youve even realized you remembered them. The sound here is decidedly 4-track home-fi, with a gauzy analog mist ever present & the sounds of the environment gently creeping in. A largely solo affair, but with considerable & highly distinctive contributions from Alastair Galbraith, adding an electrified & disorienting edge.

Truly one of the great outsider creations ever spawned under a full moon." - FE. "The circumstances behind Heitkotter are obscure and confusing: all that is known for certain is that Steve Heitkotter recorded the LP sometime before 1971, when he and his reluctant brother Bill took unsolicited promotional copies to eight local FM station in Californias San Joaquin Valley. Whoever else may have participated is a mystery: Steven had spent the mid 60s drumming for Fresno garage mainstays the Road Runners, so he had some connections left, but the time after the Runners had reportedly brought him to psychotropic drugs and mental instability, and his family doubts that he was on good terms with enough musicians even to organize a drag jam of messed up desert loner westcoast churning and meandering, like a Magic Band gig falling apart (Paul Major). The LPs murky sound and symbiotically disintegrating musicianship do seem to suggest that the session was cut live to four track, but Bill Heikotter swears that Steve was a loner at the time, alienated from his former bandmates, and that he recorded the album entirely by himself. That makes the amnesia of the musicians, who intermittently forget how to play their instruments, all the more curious, as Steve himself was a good guitarist and quasi-professional drummer, though the influence of drugs, fatigue, or apathy seems plausible enough." - Time-Lag.

Digital version... same deluxe LP-style packaging as the vinyl version, only smaller, with the same insert. "first ever reissue of this totally brilliant post-satwa 1973 brazilian private press featuring the core trio lula côrtes, marconi notaro & zé ramalho. recorded just months after lula & lailson had released satwa, lula was back in the same recife studio with poet and friend marconi notaro to lay down another equally magical album. zé ramalho, who would go on to record the paéberu 2lp with lula two years later, makes his recording debut here as well... somehow amidst the harsh government restrictions of 70s brazil, lula côrtes and his group of artist friends had managed to bypass the authorities and create a hugely creative micro-world of their own, recording, producing, and releasing this album with complete independence. no small feat in and of itself, no doubt, but the music is what makes this slab a true lost masterpiece... the whole album gushes forth with a sun baked spirit of the highest level, mixing tropicalia tinged folk-beat groovers, satwa style bliss trance ragas, paébiru favored lysergic jungle psych, and even a raging fuzz/wah soaked garage psych rocker. extremely mind melting from start to finish, with huge washes of rippling tape delay, electric & acoustic guitars, 12 string, tranced folk percussion, passionate yet mellow vocals, liquid electric bass, acid effects everywhere, and of course lulas mercurial & heart melting tricórdio (an instrument he made himself, something like a sitar/dulcimer hybrid). beautiful, melancholy and joyous all at the same moment, this is an album that after 33 years still sounds completely fresh & unique... sadly marconi passed away in 2000 having lived a life of obscurity even in his own town, yet leaving behind 7 published books of poetry and this stunning, lone album. this reissue has been authorized by maconis daughter and lula córtes to insure they receive the credit and funds they deserve, even if it comes 3 decades late... fully reproduced original art, featuring beautiful drawings by lula & layout by katia. heavy weight, old style, laminated gatefold covers. pressed on 180gm virgin vinyl. original label art. plus a huge full color 4 page insert featuring fully translated original notes, rare photos and book covers, marconis last poem written the day before his death, and extensive new notes & biography by lula córtes. vinyl version limited to 1000 copies." - Time-Lag.

Title: Painting Petals on Planet Ghost
Format: CD
Label: Time-Lag
Country: USA
Price: $14.50
"Digital version of the out-of-print LP. Debut recording from Italys Opalio brothers (My Cat Is An Alien) and Ramona Ponzini. An esoteric and mesmerizing trip through space, minimalism and emotion. Each track recorded at a different mystical location in the western Alps, and centered around Ramonas beautiful vocals, all of which are sung in traditional Japanese. Maurizio & Roberto add sparse accompaniment by means of toy piano, alien keyboard tones, antique accordion, percussion, tape effects, and some particularly evocative acoustic guitar. The whole thing comes off alternately as deeply meditative or chillingly haunted, depending on your attention & mood. Silence, space & ritual are hugely important here, with notes & words hovering frozen in time. While the My Cat Is An Alien moniker might leave some folks scratching their heads, here the Painting Petals on Planet Ghost name nails it: fragile, beautiful, cosmically isolationist, and totally spooked. Lushly packaged in a mini version of the original LP packaging, with letterpress printed tri-fold cover. Printed with copper ink on exquisite & massively thick handmade ivory art paper, each sheet cast one at a time & air dried." - Time-Lag.
