Artist: JULIE MITTENS, THE
Title: Baltimore, September 10 2008
Format: CDR
Label: Abandon Ship
Country: USA
Price: $6.00
"The Julie Mittens were among the first groups that I asked to do a release for Abandon Ship Records. Its been nearly a year now, and well worth the wait. Theyve made some treacherous waves over the past few years, from their Sloow tape to their latest Holy Mountain release. This one is no exception. Fresh off their US tour, the Julie Mittens decided to properly document it with sister releases on ASR and the Netherlands own Cut Hands (http://www.cuthands.net/catalog.htm) label, respectively. Not only are the two releases completely different from each other, but each CDr is housed in its own one-of-a-kind sleeve which boasts a unique photo taken on their US tour. Thats 200 different sleeves in total, with screenprinting on each taboot! Recorded by Steve Sanford at the Golden West Cafe in Baltimore on September 10th, and features Baltimores own Lexie Mountain on vocals for the 2nd track. cd-r edition of 100." -Abandon Ship

Artist: JULIE MITTENS, THE
Title: Julie Mittens
Format: CD
Label: Holy Mountain
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"THE JULIE MITTENS are a Dutch power trio who specialize in extended improvisation at extreme volume. Inspired by John Coltranes The Olatunji Concert: The Last Live Recording and the knowledge that Fushitsusha has more to do with Thelonius Monk than Blue Cheer, guitarist AART-JAN SCHAKENBOS, bassist MICHAEL VAN DAM, and drummer LEO FABRIEK consistently wreak havoc with lavish, textural, speaker-blowing meltdown jams; they surge with psychedelic power and a stellar rhythm section on the four studio recordings here. "A kind of spiritual anarchy surfaces through the distorted bedlam, illuminating a full spectrum of frequencies which gives their most feverish moments the effect of coma-inducing psychical bliss landing somewhere between head banging and catatonia. These guys take it to edge and then push further out until there is literally no physical place left to go. Intense and just brilliant."-Todd Brooks, Foxy Digitalis. Features one of the founders of the WOT NXT collective, and members of the SUGAR COATED MIND BOMBS and TENUZU NO CHIIZU."-Holy Mountain

Title: April/June
Format: LP
Label: Rococo
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
Guitar/drum jams ala Fushitsusha, Ascension, etc... As described by the band: "April/June...recorded in our rehearsal room first part of 2006 in Leiden, The Netherlands. The tracks are from two different sessions hence April/June (we like to keep our titles simple). The idea was to make a cyclical work (round like an lp) so theres no side A or B. The listener can start anywhere. The tracks are just there...they do not really start or end and they seem to add to each other somehow after a while (at least thats my experience)... Although the tracks feel like a relaxed ride at times, they where recorded at the usual intense volume levels...really, really loud! Dont know how they came out this way... All four tracks had this same relaxed feeling about them so thats why we decided to put them together. Our tracks have no name, no number, they are what they are..." Still copies available of this 2006 release.
