Title: Gel Stations Past
Format: LP
Label: House Rules
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"Gel Stations Past brings together tracks from three shadowy self-released cassettes by Russian Tsarlag: Decrepit Gas Station, Living in the Past, and Dipped in Gel. Dubbed in minimal quantities and cloistered for private worship, much of Russian Tsarlags recent output remains hard to find. Each of these albums dispersed instantly among friends and fanatics and receded into legend. This record consolidates the great pieces of crooner dejection that typify Tsarlags recent music. These are his saddest and slowest-burning songs, drawn in dour guitar, sweeping keyboard, and sedated vocals that teeter well below mid-tempo. Many share a somber two-chord schema that slips in perfect doses of dissonance and distortion. The results are at once refined and totally ragged, seductive, woozy, and smeared in Tsarlags shapely four-track atmospherics." - House Rules (Sub-label of Goaty Tapes).

Title: Gagged in Boonesville
Format: LP
Label: Not Not Fun
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Providence, RI, garbage-artisan savant RUSSIAN TSARLAG (aka CARLOS GONZALES) should need no introduction at this point-hes been trucking his moldy fruit cart of sewage-pop and bad acid storytelling across the American wasteland since longer than most people have had an email account. Yet over the past few years his uniquely zombified scrapheap songcraft has fermented into its ripest and most reflective forms, none more so than his latest bleach blanket odyssey, Gagged in Boonesville. The album tells the sordid tale of a huge tenement apartment building whose residents are mentally poisoned by an ancient poster of Medusa haunting the basement, not to mention the unruly pack of rabies-stricken stray dogs living in the courtyard. (Shits pretty bleak in Boonesville, clearly.) Given the backstory, its fitting that the LPs nine tracks traverse a more melancholy, meditative dimension of the Tsarlag multiverse: dumpster-scrounged fifth-generation new-wave demos ("Gagged in Boonesville," "Play This Tape Again"), homeless mutant campfire dirges ("This Waltz"), cyborg-mumbling depressive ambience ("Become Solid"), even a cockroach-covered piano ballad ("Island of Lost Souls"). Its all here, echoing down the derelict stairwells-another fascinating, unclassifiable chapter in the Neverending Story of Tsarlag. Read it or weep. Strictly limited edition of 475 copies. Includes eight-panel hand-assembled art zine of original drawings." -Not Not Fun.
