Title: Ina Hudba: Experimental Studio Bratislava Series 1
Format: LP + CD
Label: 4MG
Country: Slovakia
Price: $25.00
"A milestone; an incredible historical recording never before issued in any format. This is the first release of the work of Slovak composers who were active in the 60s and 70s, a missing link in the history of musique concrète. The first in a series of three released in celebration of the 2015 50th anniversary of the Experimental Studio Bratislava, Slovakia. "In 1965 the Experimental Studio Bratislava was founded by the Czechoslovak broadcast service... Composers like Peter Kolman, Jozef Malovec etc. started on a do it yourself level and built the equipment which was then not available through the Iron Curtain themselves. However, the studios vicinity to Budapest eventually made it easier for the Slovaks to source the equipment they needed as Hungary had a more free interpretation of the socialist marketsystem. The artists were thus able to make improvements that allowed them to experiment with Musique Concrète and electronic sounds... Interestingly Exs had, for various reasons, never released a record in their own name in spite of vivid exchange with likeminded artists in European studios like the Electronic Studio Stockholm (EMS), founded the same year, 1965, Budapest, Warsaw etc. Recordings made in Exs appeared for example on Hungaroton SLPX-11851: Hungarian Electronic Music; Supraphon SUA 10951: Electronic Music; Supraphone 1111423: From Czech Electronic Music Studios; CBS-S3461144: Musique Tchecoslovaque Nouvelle just to mention a few. We therefore feel it is overdue and more than appropriate to let the increasingly interested world of analog electronic music aficionados know about the hidden gems of vintage electronic sounds and Musique Concrète created behind the iron curtain two generations ago. This is our first release -- Experimental Studio Bratislava, Series 1 - 2 - 3 -- in a small series of 3 with unreleased master tracks from Slovak composers recorded in the Exs between 1965 and 2005. The next releases will be out in about 6 months and 12 months, respectively. Each release consists of one vinyl LP with a CD included -- while on the vinyl some of the tracks will be shortened, the same tracks on the CD will always be in full original length" --Peter Doggwiler, producer. Limited numbered edition of 500. Includes tracks by Roman Berger, Pavol Simai, Ilja Zeljenka, Ivan Hrusovský, Jozef Malovec, Miro Bázlik, Ivan Parík, Peter Kolman, and Tadeás Salva." - 4MG.

Title: Nova Generacia: Experimental Studio Bratislava Series 2
Format: LP & CD
Label: 4MG
Country: Slovakia
Price: $25.00
“Its difficult to overstate the unique brilliance of the (almost unknown) early electronic music composers featured on this compilation of seminal, previously unreleased electronic music from the 1980s. Collecting towering analog modular synth shapes and tones with hypnotic acoustic refrains, Nová Generácia is unlike any other kosmische or early electronic record out there. "In 2015 the 50th anniversary of the Experimental Studio Bratislava (Exs) in Slovakia was crowned with the first-ever release of their music production: the LP Iná Hudba, which sold out almost immediately after the release. Now the following Series 2: Nová Generácia presents the second generation of experimental and musique concrète composers from Slovakia and concentrates mostly on works from the 80s. These milestone recordings with an unmeasurable historical value have never been released in any format ever and this is only the second time that avant-garde and experimental electronic Slovak composers have been exposed, united on one medium, to the world. While on Series 1 self-made studio equipment and electronic devices was the norm for recordings made in the 60s and 70s in Bratislava, we can see now the use of Western equipment like the Studer 907 with console etc. used by the Nová Generácia in the 80s. This technical development allowed new composition processes and this new equipment generated new and fresh ideas -- on the same footing as avant-garde composers on the other side of the iron curtain like Karlheinz Stockhausen, György Ligeti, Pietro Grossi, etc. Sound art gradually found its firm place in the Slovak culture. A new generation -- Nová Generácia -- of composers who looked for new and different methods of musical expression. All the recordings are strictly analog -- recorded and produced with analog equipment only! A selection of Slovak electro-acoustic composers who follow the pioneers previously released on Iná Hudba: Experimental Studio Bratislava Series 1" --Peter Doggwiler, producer. Limited numbered edition of 500 LPs with CD included. While most tracks have been shortened to fit on the LP, the CD includes all tracks in their full original length. Includes works by Milan Adamčiak, Martin Burlas, Juraj Pospísil, Víťazoslav Kubička, Rudolf Pepucha, Robert Rudolf, Juraj Ďuris, and Svetozár Stračina.” - 4MG.

Title: Live AT AC Temple - Arthur Doyle + Hollow Bush, Demons, Drug Knives
Format: DVDR
Label: AA
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"In Birmingham, Alabama there is a fountain at the Five Points. The fountain is of a goat lord surrounded by small animals. Water sprays from the mouths of each animal, the streams cross and a pentagram forms.  Birmingham is also home to Arthur Doyle and Hollow Bush (Rodger Stella, Bryan Martin).  A collaboration between Arthur Doyle and Hollow Bush is a strange thought for anyone who knows Rodger Stella or has seen Arthur Doyle.  Even more complex is the image of the two of them behind closed doors discussing the approach and direction of the set to follow.  What truly blew my mind was the set itself.  Starting out with Doyles vocal work alone, the sound had a sparse and delicate feeling. Rodger Stella soon joined Doyle with a mirror of vocal samples.  Doyle hears himself, smiles, then stops to listen. What followed was a intricate working of vocal loops and cut up sax with hand over beer electronics. Rodger Stella and Arthur Doyle are an odd couple but some how a perfect match. My favorite performance of the 2007. This is followed by the latest in live Demons visual music straight from the Invisible Darkness tour and committed to DVD here for the first time. The night ended with a very rare Drug Knives set - Demons with Stella playing for themselves in the muscle-relaxed atmosphere of each others company. Drug Knives is just that deep long stare into oblivian." - AA Records.

"Oberlin rules because even though its a school theres a bar with good beer and the bar is like 20 feet from the stage.  What happens when you have a bar on a campus and a killer gig = Wolf Eyes, Sick Llama, Raven Strain?  Witness the mayhem that ensues!  Someone gets so excited they pull the fire alarm to jam along! This dvd has all you would expect from a truly wasted line up playing in Ohio. Lots of slamming, lots of pits and lots people you know. Sounds from Raven Strain and Sick Llama to make you pass out and puke, and a slam section from Wolf Eyes for the masochistic minded." - AA Records.

Title: Lagos Disco Inferno
Format: Double LP
Label: Academy
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"Welcome to the Lagos Disco Inferno, the first compilation of rare, Nigerian Disco to be released outside of Africa. Compiled by Frank Gossner (of Voodoofunk.com fame), this record contains 12 tracks that represent the sound of Lagos in the late 1970s. Dean Disi (Music Journalist and formerly Director of Lagos based label TYC Records) wrote the liner notes for this album: it was the era of sheer ecstasy. The music not only represents the vibrancy of youthful expressionism of the time but is also deeply rooted in African rhythm though not traditional in phraseology. This collection of songs marks the development of Nigerian urban pop culture. There was diametric difference in the music of the discos and the music play by the groups. Disco music as played by the DJs was essentially western. The fans could connect with this easily. It was hip, urban and stimulating. The young Nigerian groups were hooked on it and tried to play it but with a distinctive African stamp of their own.�?� Some of the artists on this record were stars of their times while others remained in obscurity. Lagos, a uniquely vibrant, gritty, energetic and sometimes quite dangerous tropical metropolis has always been much more than just a city. A state of mind where third world poverty met the oil boom, where African traditions clashed with Western decadence. Make no mistake, this stuff will have you dance in a feverish rush in no time." - Academy.

Title: Avant Marghen Vol. 1
Format: 7 LP Box Set
Label: Alga Marghen
Country: Italy
Price: $178.00
Incredible set of 3 boxes, each with 7LPs in it, from the Alga Marghen archives. These are all previously released LPs, but most have been o/p for many years now. The boxes are limited to a numbered edition of 80 copies each. "The VocSon series might be identified as the starting point of all the Alga Marghen activities. This series, which still continues to present on limited LP records the most advanced international vocal experiments, is mainly dedicated to the documentation of sound poetry. Since most of the titles immediately sold out, Alga Marghen decided to issue a kind of anthology, specially issued for ArtBasel where Alga Marghen will present its catalog following an invitation by Maurizio Nannucci of the Artists Record Pavillion. This also in order to give the opportunity to those who missed the-now-rare original editions to be able to find them now, even if in a very limited run. Each LP is numbered on the VocSon innersleeve expressly conceived for this edition. This luxury boxset edition actually includes the first 7 LPs issued for the VocSon series, or: 1) Bernard Heidsieck Poème-Partition X LP. First 80 copies from the original 300 copies edition issued in 1997. The very early experimental poem by Bernard Heidsieck may be considered one of his first important creations. The record which started the VocSon series. 2) Henri Chopin Cantata for Two Farts & Co. LP. Edition of 80 copies with new labels. Henri Chopin presents previously unreleased audiopoems as well as the reprint of two pieces from the Radiotaxi LP (the tracks taken from Radiotaxi are here presented for the first time mastered at the correct speed). 3) Bernard Heidsieck Vaduz LP. Edition of 80 copies with new labels. Vaduz (12:23) can be considered one of Bernard Heidsiecks major works. Very experimental with a lot of electronic manipulations. According to Henri Chopin, this is the only true audiopoem by Heidsieck. Composed June to December 1974 and recorded on a Revox A 700 at the authors studio. 4) Philip Corner Word-Voices LP. First 80 copies from the original 500 copies edition issued in 1997. A record LP of vocal utterances including early Fluxus voice and instrumental pieces. 5) Henri Chopin Les Mirifiques Tundras & Co.. Original pre-released edition of 80 copies on yellow vinyl, never offered before. Extreme voice sound manipulations. Somehow in the vein of Hodell Text-Sound composition, just more primitive and visceral. 6) Sten Hanson The Sonosopher Retrospective LP. First 80 copies from the original 545 copies edition issued in 1998. An anthology of Sten Hanson Text-Sound composition. This edition pre-dates the anthologized CDs which were issued in Sweden. 7) Ake Hodell 220 Volts Buddha LP. First 80 copies from the original 545 copies edition issued in 1998. Fantastic electronic music LP. The pieces on this LP were included in the 3CD anthology issued by Fylkingen. Your chance to get the original edition on LP now." - Alga Marghen.

Title: Avant Marghen Vol. 2
Format: 7 LP Box Set
Label: Alga Marghen
Country: Italy
Price: $178.00
Second volume of the Avant MarghenVocSon series, numbered edition of 80 copies. "This luxury boxset edition actually includes the second group of 7 LPs issued for the VocSon series: 1) Brion Gysins Poems Of Poems LP. First 80 copies from the original 630 copies edition issued in 1998. Very early poetical experimentation recorded in 1958 at the Beat Hotel, Paris. The origins of cut-up are documented in this radical edition. You will experience why Brion Gysin was a strong reference for Henri Chopin and Bernard Heidsieck. 2) Bernard Heidsieck 50/70 LP. First 80 copies from the original 480 copies edition issued in 1998. The third Bernard Heidsieck LP issued by Alga Marghen draws the picture of two specific moments on artistic creation: the 1950s and the 1970s. 3) Jose Luis Castillejo The Book of is LP. First 80 copies from the original 240 copies edition issued in 1998. Very limited and immediately sold out edition of Castillejo conceptual recordings. Jose Luis Castillejo books always included him among the Concrete Poems and were regarded as very special graphic creations. A deep exploration of his abstract and radical poetry will lead to a more conceptual and philosophical understanding as this LP clearly states. 4) Jil G. Wolman Lanticoncept LP. Edition of 80 copies with new labels. Edition of Gil J Wolman megapneums, or the beginning of the whole sonic adventures. If Gysin was a strong conceptual influence for the Henri Chopin and Bernard Heidsieck generation, Wolman was showing them the sonic direction. Just with the use of the breath and respiration, his Megapneums had the same intensity of the electronic manipulation that will make Chopins audiopoems so radically new and uncompromising. This LP also include excerpts from Wolman sound-film LAnticoncept from 1952. 5) Isidore Isou Poèmes Lettristes 1944-99 LP. Edition of 80 copies with new labels. Historical edition by Isidore Isou. This is the first record LP ever published by the father of Lettrism. Poems from 1944 to 1999 including a breath taking improvisation, some 1970s recordings by Maurice Lemaitre and an early, primitive and incredible performance by Francois Dufrene. Recorded at Isous apartement in 1999. 6) Juan Hidalgo Una Voz LP. First 80 copies from the original 323 copies edition issued in 2000. First ever ZAJ LP record! An historical recording of Juan Hidalgo Una Voz, including concrete sound interventions by Walter Marchetti. A large size booklet with the transcription in English and Spanish of the spoken text is also included. Capital! 7) Arrigo Lora-Totino Fonemi LP. First 80 copies from the original 345 copies edition issued in 2000. Arrigo Lora-Totino is probably best known for having been the editor of the famous sound poetry anthology issued by Cramps Records in the 1970s with the title Futura. But only a few know about his sound poetry production. Following Henri Chopins idea that poetry is above all an expression of the body through its own language, Lora-Totino started his important poetic practice in 1965 with Fonemi, a sound sample of erasure: the reading of a text recorded on tape is filtered through an electronic pulse generator that splits it into small fragments." - Alga Marghen.

This LP includes previously unreleased audiopoems dating from 1965 to 1981. 7) Ben Patterson A Fluxus Elegy LP. First 80 copies from the original 345 copies edition issued in 2006. This Ben Patterson composition, issued on is based on the basic principles of the polyphonic music of the Bantu tribes of West and Central Africa. First principle: the practice of interlocking individual pitches or tones performed by one person into spaces between other pitches or tones performed by another person, thus alternating pitches or tones of one part with those of another part to create a whole. Second principle: use of cyclical and open-ended forms involving one or more ostinato melodic/rhythmic pattern as a foundation. Third principle: community participation... non-specialists are encouraged to join in long performances with much repetition. Fourth principle: rhythmic complexity with the juxtaposition of double and triple patterns, multiple layering of different patterns, and interaction between a core foundation and improvised parts. And, most important, the family ownership of a specific tone: in the musical culture of these tribes, each ancestral family owns and is responsible for one or more specific tones, which must be sounded at specific points, sequencing with the many other specific tones owned by other families, to create a seamless melody. Ben Patterson made a music based on this information by taking the initials of artists listed in Fluxus: The Most Radical and Experimental Art Movement of the Sixties and encoding them in basic International Morse Code. These dots and dashes were then performed on a Yamaha DJX keyboard (voice pattern setting), connected to a Digitech JamMan Looper (over-dub setting), connected to an Eurorack MX 602A mixer. Front cover reproducing the original score." - Alga Marghen.

Label: Alga Marghen
Country: Italy
Price: $176.00
"New volume of the Avant Marghen series in a numbered edition of 80 copies. This luxury black boxset edition actually includes the fourth group of 7 LPs previously issued for the VocSon series and now sold out. Each individual LP record includes a numbered Avant Marghen inner-sleeve. LP 1 to 4) François Dufrene Oeuvre Désintégrale 4 LP set. First 80 copies from the original pressing of 345 copies issued in 2007, presented here with minimal hand-elaboration on each sleeve. François Dufrenes impressive work, along with that of Gil J. Wolman and Brion Gysin, was a strong influence for experimental poets like Henri Chopin, Bernard Heidsieck and Ake Hodell. LP1) Oeuvre Désintégrale 1 LP includes an 18-minute-long crirythme from 1969 as well as Osmose-art, a long piece from 1969 divided into two suites where Dufrene superimposes his crirhythms to classical music. LP2) Oeuvre Désintégrale 2 LP includes six majestic crirythmes (created between 1965 and 1976) as well as Eryximaque, suite choreographique au Tombeau de Pierre Larusse, a work halfway between the written text and the sound poem whose unity is achieved through Dufrene performing it, a masterpiece of synthesis of active poetry. LP3) Oeuvre Désintégrale 3 LP includes two Lecture-collages dating from 1965, adding jazz music (especially drum and percussion pieces) to poems marked by strong Lettristic esthetic. One of his most extreme crirythmes, titled Belles nuisances, hantez nos nuits, dating from 1970, is also included on this record. LP4) Oeuvre Désintégrale 4 LP includes three breathtaking crirythmes as well as two Comptinuum from his early on-progress works started in 1958. LP5) Charlemagne Palestine Voice Studies LP, limited to 80 numbered copies pressed on dark blue vinyl and featuring a new sleeve, only available with this boxset edition. Palestines introduction to music or sound was first with his own voice. This LP includes the very early Surrealistic Studies, using a Webcor reel-to-reel tape recorder, discovering a technique of shouting into the microphone and immediately pulling it out, creating an interior echo chamber where the sound would turn around on itself, changing and distorting. Voice + Piano Study I & II are short and beautiful piano improvisations with tape superimposition of accelerated voice pieces. In Voice Study Charlemagne sings in a falsetto duet with himself on two separate tracks in a resonant space, searching for intervals that resonate together and respond like electronic sound wave oscillators played against each other. LP6) Gherasim Luca Two Poems LP. First 80 copies from the original pressing of 385 copies issued in 2009. Created in close connection to Sten Hanson who invited the Rumenian artist at Fylkingen in the very beginning of the 1970s and made him discover the possibilities of the advanced EMS electronic music studio of Stockholm. The two recordings presented here are quite unique as they are the only poems by Gherasim Luca created through the use of electronic manipulations. Autres Secrets Du Vide Et Du Plein (April 1971) and Crimes Sens Initiales (April 1972) were both performed at the 1971 and 1972 Text-Sound Festivals of Stockholm. Including an essay by Henri Chopin. LP7) Charlemagne Palestine & Simone Forti Illuminations LP. First 80 copies from the original pressing of 365 copies issued in 2010. Duo interactions, illuminated with dim red lights. The three previously unreleased recordings on this LP were made between October and December 1971." - Alga Marghen.

Title: Rumori Alla Rotonda
Format: CD
Label: Alga Marghen
Country: Italy
Price: $20.00
"Live recording at the Rotonda del Pellegrini, Milan, January 21st, 1959 featuring John Cage, Morton Feldman, Juan Hidalgo, Leopoldo La Rosa, and Walter Marchetti. Among all the events involving John Cage during the long stay in Europe that followed his controversial appearance at Darmstadt Ferienkurse in September 1958, the concert he held in Milan on January 21st perhaps represents a less well known episode. Featuring Cages intervention both as composer and performer of ones own work as well as of two piano pieces by Morton Feldman, the concert at Pellegrinis Rotonda may be considered the first event of experimental music in Europe in which the presentation of American and European composers consciously acted on an equal aesthetic horizon. Both the set of pieces in the program and the peculiar environmental frame of the concert emphasized the radical aesthetic conceptions of the compositions performed. Cages choice was highly representative and relapsed into those works of his recent catalog that represented conscious neutralization of compositive intention. "Duo" opens the concert, consisting of parts for flute and viola excerpted from his celebrated "Concert for Piano and Orchestra." Cage then completed his participation in the concert, besides performing some unspecified numbers from "Music for Piano," also performing two of the three "Piano Pieces" with which Morton Feldman, in 1954, was converted to adopt the aleatory graphic notations. Juan Hidalgo, Walter Marchetti, and Leopoldo La Rosa premiered six compositions purposefully written for this occasion, employing aleatory procedures for the first time in their works. Both Hidalgo and Marchetti wrote a trio and a quartet firstly following a common notational stylization, which provides the spatial distribution of a prearranged, but reversible sequence of intervals within a flexible temporal grid, structured on a time limit. Exploiting the circular architectonic structure of the concert hall, all the performers were spread abroad among the audience, with the piano exactly in the center. The concert at Pellegrinis Rotonda was characterized by the performance of works that accepted the indeterminacy as their own operative premise, but also for having been a collective event in which the individual contribution of each composer mutually acted as autonomous elements. The edition includes a 36-page essay with photos and full documentation of the event." - Alga Marghen.

Title: Sounds of Silence
Format: LP
Label: Alga Marghen
Country: Italy
Price: $30.00
2017 repress. "Sounds of Silence is an anthology of some of the most intriguing silent tracks in recording history and includes rare works, among others, by Andy Warhol, John Lennon, Maurice Lemaitre, Sly & The Family Stone, Robert Wyatt, John Denver, Whitehouse, Orbital, Crass, Ciccone Youth, Afrika Bambaataa and of course, Yves Klein. In their own quiet way, these silences speak volumes: they are performative, political, critical, abstract, poetic, cynical, technical, absurd. They can be intended as a memorial or a joke, a special offer, or something entirely undefined. The carefully-chosen silences of this anthology are intrinsically linked to the medium of reproduction itself and reveal its nude materiality. They expose their medium in all its facets and imperfections, including the effect of time and wear. At the most basic level, these silences are surfaces. And it is in their materiality that they distinguish themselves from the conceptual experiments of John Cage with "4 33". Since the 1950s, silence has found a place in the economic structure of the record industry and since then it would increasingly be appropriated by a vast array of artists in a vast array of contexts. Indeed, the silent tracks seem to know no boundaries. The LP presents the silences as they were originally recorded, preserving any imperfection that the hardware conferred upon the enterprise, without banning the possibility of being satisfying to the ear. The liner notes provide historical background for each track, revealing the stated (or presumed) motivations for these silences, while providing novel sound correspondences or interferences. This album is meant to be played loud (or not), at any time, in any place: a true aural experience. Only 250 copies available for distribution, in a gatefold iconic sleeve." - Alga Marghen.

"Whoa! Hold on now! Heres the big one! All recorded in a one week in late April, heres the line up: Track One ) Pool Water: Super new heavy unit with Connelly, Zone One and Mega Mike Collino. Violin, kitchen percussion, slow tapes - every ingredient to make your pulse quicken/slow-en!!! The track sounds more akin to a Cook Labs recording of a train journey thru a snow covered mountain at midnight rather than three mug blokes in ultra concentrated jam mode.... Will make your skin stand at attention, soldier!! Recorded in Inzane-Dimension sound with the IZTF in full effect mode. Mad style: File Under: Misshapen Jam Growths. Track Two ) People Pollution: What the? Ultra distorted retardo basement rock trio with Juice & Raddix (AKA Raven Strain Matt and Fag Health AKA Sick Llama Heath) on guitar and bass and Inzane on plodding go nowhere drumming. Was meant to be a Justice-style garage unit turned Frankenstein- style into a twisted distorted Mega-mess! Recorded under the influence of afternoon sun, left over Milwaukee Beasts from the Aries Assault party, and the shadows of the dank interiors of the Frying Pan. WARNING! = worst guitar/bass tone on earth!! Would make Joe Young, Vorkriegphase, and Wretched sell they kitty littered amp speakers for opening a Baskin and Robins Franchise. Just a stinking rocking mess of a track!! More to come by this mutant unit! Name taken from a strange puzzle the puzzler master Tovah found in a rotten Lansing thrift store. Track Three ) Imaginary Unit in Electronics: Im sure yall are like "Why not just call the jam J?" Well, Im not quite sold on the concept of being that you cant take the square root of a negative, but you CAN call it a J and then next thing you know it has a value of 1 or-1. Huh? When rad Instructor Max got asked the question by a stunned Electrical Math class, he just looked down, counted his voltage, current, and resistance markers and said, "Well, thats a discussion for Carl Jung." Shit, lost me too. Like the button my crazed mom had (no ya turkey, not the OVERSEXED one) , = "Ninety Percent of Life is Just Showing Up." True. Soundtrack for confusion, included.

"Hold on gnaw...last but not least..... the NO STATE NO SOUND comp lp. Dont know what led up to it...think I vaguely remember getting "dared" by Nurse Khrust to put out a record of silence by the crew, not sure, but maybe told Haunted Square D about it....but anyhow.....flashblack to an average but killer brewsday in the late summer, got the crew shooting the gip, no biggy, and Square D rolls up with his "Body Morph" one minute silent track....takes a sec to remember but all right...lets do this. Greh and V invite the now deep crew black to they hut, and on the way I had a walkman in the whip, so i popped in Ds master, hit record and the stop watch for a minute and me and the Connartist sat in silence for a minute and recorded the second track BIRTH REFUSAL. As we got to Grehs, we assembled all the jammers present and hit em up for a minute, all on three different Walkmans all on the original master tape. Was totally strange, Sick Llama was just standing in a yard with the crew looking at him pointing a recorder his way while nothing happened. It was like a very strange gig. So after everyone at the party got recorded/ trapped in NO SOUND, some the garage, some inside a bathroom whilst the crew stared at the close door, someone had the idea to call up some jammers. So No Fucker Johnny, Romero, others all held on the line for a minute of NOTHING. Totally rules. The end result sounds like a Folkways experiment. I ended up coming home and getting busted for "recording silence and not grabbing the Air Condition Window Unit" which was the only reason i went Grehs begin with. Hey, Window AC Unit or not, you are still KOOL with this platter!!

Format: CD
Label: Analog Africa
Country: Germany
Price: $21.00
"From Benin & Togo 70s. Spectacular package with thick 44-page booklet and slipcase packaging. This CD is licensed for release in the U.S. later in 2008, unsure if it will have the same deluxe packaging... "Just like with the labels first two releases -- albums by Zimbabwean 70s bands the Green Arrows and Hallelujah Chicken Run Band -- the essence of Analog Africa is clear yet again: searching in dusty warehouses for forgotten music to keep it alive. All the tracks have been officially licensed, usually from the artists who Ben Redjeb also met with for detailed research. He conducted 16 interviews in various cities in Benin and Togo with artists, producers and sound engineers to reconstruct the history of the 70s music scene for the 44-page booklet which also includes many rare photographs directly received from the artists. Like most modern music in French-speaking West African countries, the music of Benin and Togo was influenced by a few main musical currents: Cuban, Congolese and local traditional music, as well as Chanson Francaise. Additionally, the geographical location of Benin and Togo -- sandwiched between Ghana and Nigeria -- exposed Beninese and Togolese musicians to Highlife music. The cultural and spiritual riches of traditional Beninese music had an immense impact on the sound of Benins modern music. Benin is the birth place of Vodun (or, as it is known in the West, Voodoo), and some of the rhythms used during traditional rituals -- Sakpata, Sato, Agbadja, Tchenkoumé and many others -- were fused to soul and Latin music as early as the mid-1960s and later to funk. That fusion is the essence of this compilation. In the late 60s and early 70s, rock and soul music started creeping into the region. In particular, the music of James Brown and Johnny Halladay became immensely popular with university students. It was then that the music scene in Benin really started to take off. What made this musical revolution even more interesting is that most of the musicians could not read music. Often the music they made sounded one semi-tone away from being out of tune, but somehow they always managed to bring all the elements together into something new and exciting. One of the greatest bands of their era, Orchestre Poly-Rythmo de Cotonou, who are featured on this compilation, took the Afro sound to another level by showing their musical versatility in many forms. Although they were consciously copying Western artists, they would always inject a dose of psychedelic Afro grooves that would make their music unmistakably Beninese. Their biggest song, Gbeti Madjro is believed to have revolutionized the music industry in Benin in the 70s when the country went through a period of political turmoil. The song is full of raw breaks and the hypnotic rhythms as well as screams à la James Brown -- after this song, many bands in Benin started screaming on their recordings, hence the title of this compilation. Latin-influenced sounds are present on this compilation, too. Ouidah, a city on the Atlantic coast of Benin, is home to a large Brazilian community, or, as they are called in Benin, Agoudas. Members of that community are descendents of slaves who returned from Brazil at the end of the 19th century. Their dances (such as Kaléta and Buriyanj) and songs are still being performed and fused into the traditional Beninese rituals. That, too, can be heard in modern Beninese music. The proximity of the giant neighbor Nigeria can be heard on the track Djanfa Magni which features the amazing trumpeter/ saxophonist Tidjani Koné fronting the Orchestre Poly-Rythmo. Koné whose career started in Mali as the founder and band leader of the Rail Band de Bamako, had played with Fela Kuti for a short while hence the strong Afrobeat influence. There are countless stories to be discovered in the extremely well-researched booklet and the music is truly mind-blowing. So delve into the forgotten raw and psychedelic Afro sounds from 70s Benin and Togo and experience the African Scream Contest." -Analog Africa

Format: Double LP
Label: Analog Africa
Country: Germany
Price: $26.00
"Deluxe gatefold 2LP version. Subtitled: The Unique Sound Of Luanda 1968-1976. The nascent Angolan music scene was set on fire by a small group of intrepid singers, backed by an array of super-tight bands and led by extraordinary guitarists who revolutionized the musical and the political panorama of the 60s and 70s. A powerful confluence of traditional rhythms from Luandas islands, psychedelic guitar sounds imported from neighboring Congo, Latin grooves, old school Caribbean merengue and the hard beat of the Angolan carnival bands conspired to create the modern music of Angola. These sounds were immortalized by two excellent recording companies -- Fadiang (Fábrica De Discos Angolano) and Valentim de Carvalho. The great electric bands of Angola were a well-kept secret until the late 90s when France-based music label Buda Musique released a short-lived series of Angolan music compiled by Ariel de Bigault. Inspired and taken aback, the releases proved to be a pivotal juncture for Analog Africas founder Samy Ben Redjeb. From the nine Analog Africa releases thus far, Angola Soundtrack has been the most difficult to create. The travel visa was in itself a struggle and logistically and financially, Luanda is a nightmare. After two unsuccessful years, Samy eventually found shelter at a home in Prenda, a musseque (township) outside of the capital. With the support of Zé Keno, the legendary guitarist of Jovens Do Prenda, he managed to meet most of the composers of the tunes presented here. The anecdotes they provided are numerous. Boto Trindade, guitarist of Os Bongos, abandoned his dream of becoming a football player to support his brothers family by earning money as a musician. A very young Zé Keno went to see his favorite guitarist Marito performing with Os Kiezos and consequently built a three-stringed guitar only to become one of the most sought-after guitarists in the country a mere few years later. Angolan music is truly unique and stands on its own as a sound that can only be found in that part of the world. Rhythms such rebita, kazucuta, semba and merengue, all of which are presented in this latest compilation, might be unfamiliar, but they are superbly melodic, highly danceable, hypnotic, raw and quintessentially beautiful and totally addictive." -Analog Africa

A deep set of notes is accompanied by comprehensive lyrical translations as well as original artwork by R. Crumb. Respectfully crafted by Christopher King and Susan Archie for Angry Mom Records. Original artwork by Robert Crumb. Fourteen songs housed in a deluxe gatefold LP." - Angry Mom.

Title: The Recordings of the Harisis Group from Northern Greece 1933
Format: 7"
Label: Angry Mom
Country: USA
Price: $7.00
"Little is known about the Harisis group that recorded the 78s found on this EP. We know their last names and the first initial of their surnames. That they hailed from the region of Northern Greece known as Epirus can be gleaned from both their repertoire and style. These four battered sides (probably the only ones they recorded and likely the best condition copies to survive the ravages of time) represent a distinct, unearthly rawness, a primal, almost dark energy that sets them apart from the other groups that recorded in the region. It is also likely that they were from Zagori, a sparsely populated area in the Pindus Mountains and contains 45 villages. Although 78s featuring songs and dance music from Epirus are scarce and desirable, the two discs by the Harisis group are vexingly rare. The archaic melodies and insistent, droning rhythms on these discs suggest a sound that is ancient and enigmatic." - Angry Mom.

Title: Wierd Presents: Cold Waves & Minimal Electronics Vol. 1
Format: Double LP
Label: Angular
Country: UK
Price: $30.00
"Angular Records (UK) are proud to announce the release of Cold Waves and Minimal Electronics Vol.1-a new seventeen-track compilation put together by New Yorks Wierd Records founder PIETER SCHOOLWERTH and Angulars JOE DANIEL. The album chronicles the secret underground cult genres of cold wave and minimal wave, which mostly originated from continental Europe between the years 1981-1985. Active largely in small towns and isolated, non-metropolitan areas of France, Germany, Italy, Belgium, and The Netherlands, the first wave of minimal electronic groups functioned at the time as a raw, aggressive, affirmative antidote to the superficial excesses of commercial new wave. Using analog synthesizers, sequencers, and drum machines the minimal synth artists successfully combined the sounds of the German electronic bands of the 60s and 70s (Amon Duul, Neu, Faust, Can) with the seminal early industrial bands largely active in the UK (Throbbing Gristle, SPK, Cabaret Voltaire) to produce a new form of electropop that went on to be crucially influential on European and American pop and dance music of the late 80s and early 90s (Italo, New Beat, EBM). Features songs that have only been available up to now on ultra rare 7-inches, lost radio sessions and cassette tapes, as well as never before seen photos and extensive sleeve notes about the genre." - Angular.

Title: Three Aural Interpretations of a Drawing by Eric Lanzillotta
Format: 7"
Label: Anomalous
Country: USA
Price: $9.00
"Limited edition of 250 copies pressed on clear vinyl and packaged in double-sided 14.5" by 10.5" poster sleeve. This 33 RPM EP include three sound artists playing a drawing by Eric Lanzillotta. Each artist has a unique, though abstract take on the drawing, which is included in the inside of the poster sleeve. The sounds include the quite moments of Jeph Jerman, the static of Leif Elggren and harsh noise of Ralf Wehowsky. Jeph Jerman gained attention under the name Hands To, but has created his most refined work under his own name. He performs mostly with natural objects (stones, plant parts, feathers, etc) and has collaborated regularly with Wally Shoup, Greg Davis, Sean Meehan, Tim Barnes, Mike Shannon, Dave Knott, Eric Lunde, and many others. He has had several previous releases on Anomalous Records, and a new CD of his work will be released by Little Enjoyer this year. Leif Elggren is a pioneering sound, performance, book and installation artist from Sweden, as well one of the two kings of Elgaland-Vargaland. In the last 30 years, he has released a great deal of material on labels such as Radium 226.05, Anckarström, Flykingen, Ash International, Korm Plastics, Some, Absurd, Meeuw Muzak, Kning Disk, iDEAL Recordings, Touch and his own Firework Edition, which has also published many of his book works, such as the legendary "Experiment with Dreams" done in collaboration with Thomas Liljenberg. Ralf Wehowsky started making music in the Neue Deutsch Welle period of Germany history with his band P.D., which later became the group P16.D4. Since the dissolution of these groups, he has been recorded largely as a solo artist, though in truth always incorporating collaborations with various friends. Over the years he has worked with Andrew Chalk, bernhard günter, Kevin Drumm, Lionel Marchetti, Bruce Russell, David Grubbs, Jim ORourke, and many others." -Anomalous.

From Providence (USA) to Melbourne (Australia), Another Dark Age delves deep into the noise and experimental scenes of both cities. Form A Log is a trio of which Ren Schofield (aka Container) is a member. Their twisted analog improvisations are as disciplined as they are chaotic. "In the Streets" is a chugging percussive jam that winds its way between noise and entropy. Phantom Selector, Victim and Carrier are artists who have released diverse music on cassettes under ever-changing monikers. Tortured vocals, eerie textures and cavernous kick drums represent the fleeting moods of these artists." - Another Dark Age.

Title: Samples Only
Format: LP
Label: Art Retro Ideas
Country: Italy
Price: $23.00
"First ever reissue of a sought-after Italian compilation highlighting all the potential of the northeastern Italian post-punk scene, originally released in 1981. Starring Ruins, European Stage, and R.A.R.A., Samples Only is your kind of compilation if youre aware of the development of the new romantic and synth wave scene. It all happened back in the day near Venice. These guys were fascinated with the whole new wave phenomenon -- the radio was pumping in their single rooms and they knew the times were changin. They were pretty young -- mostly in their twenties -- and any influence came from abroad. Rock, beat, electronic, punk, and even white funk (did someone say A Certain Ratio?) all together, as a stream of consciousness. There was a leading TV program at the time, Mr. Fantasy -- directed by an influential journalist and DJ named Carlo Massarini -- and everyone interested in post-punk and art pop was watching it, including the main characters in Samples Only. They were spending all of their small wages on imported records, duplicating them on the (in)famous C90 cassette. They were dreaming of CBGBs in New York or the Blitz in London, but the Italian clubs -- Tenax in Florence, Plastic in Milan, and even the Shindy and Memorabilia in the vast northeast area -- were not afraid of the competition. Samples Only is a postcard from those days, a shining document available again for your pleasure. Includes two tracks from the group Art Deco, exclusive to this reissue." - Art Retro Ideas.

"Its no accident that the phoenix is an exalted moral, mythical, and figurative symbol in Iran. Like the phoenix, Iranian culture is in constant flux and, at times, elusive, with its existential wavering and blurred panoramas. Most of contemporary Irans artistic and creative leanings, its grapples with history and identity, are loosely and mystically conjoined and contested in memory. Iran is marked by the complex interplay of diverse constituencies, philosophies, and influences: ethnic, religious, political, geopolitical and historical. The glorification of pre-Islamic antiquity (in search of authentication) marked the socio-cultural attitude of a bygone era and is witnessing revival in the present day. The discordant reality of eastern traditions complicated by the rampant confusions of modernity has become a norm in Persian dialogue, not to mention revolution, exile, and diaspora. Like many other countries, the sixties and seventies were a time of tumult in Iran, bringing growth (via petrodollars) and freedom (under the banner of socioeconomic development) while exacerbating inequalities within the country. The music and voices that blossomed during those decades exemplify the turbulence and excitement of the age. It is worth recognizing these left out and lost artists individually and as a group in the global happenings of 60s/70s psych, rock and folk, while exploring their influence and relevance to the present day. Is it possible that there is a genus of delectable sounds and fetching images that almost exclusively reside in the elbowroom of memory and nostalgic yesteryear storytelling? Little consideration has been given to the correlation of these sounds and stories within the universal psychedelic phenomena: parallel to the shared stylistics of British and American players, and the radical politicking of their Turkish and Korean counterparts. This collection endeavors to re-contextualize these songs from the realm of reminiscence, nostalgia, and memory into a specific and accessible narrative to share and relate within the universal musical gamut. It is for aficionados, the curious, and collectors alike. We hope that Iranians around the world will rediscover these songs. This collection is, in some sense, dedicated to a generation in self-imposed mental exile, due to years of war and catastrophe; decades of lies and bombs; a fundamentalist theocracy of reformist shams; addiction; isolation and alienation; unemployment, and inflation. These are voices and stories that may again prove relevant to a psychologically damaged and spiritually corrupt society, a society whose discontents recall the latter years of the Shahs rule. The recordings excavated here are highly sexual musings, voluble love songs, and simple folk tunes." -B-Music

“Medellín, Colombia. Mid-1980s. The city was immersed in an everyday war ritual. Police, narcs, gangs ruled the streets without fear of death. Young people had very few chances to live free from this stuff, so most of them fell into this war against everything, as the easy thing to do. A massive exodus from small villages filled cities with people to deceive. It was in the midst of this absolute chaos and destruction that the first punk and metal bands of the region started to try to make something different. Everything was against them -- society, family, police, government. Handmade guitars, amplifiers, drums -- anything would work. Pestes,Mutantex, P-Ne, Amén, Ekrion, Agressor, Parabellum, Blasfemia,Profanación, Dexkoncierto, and Mierda appeared in the city and built this scene. Rodrigo D. No Futuro is a 1990 film with these same bands, and this is the first vinyl reissue of its soundtrack -- original copies are expensive as hell.

Format: CD

Country: France
Price: $18.00
“This sequel to the acclaimed Cosmic Machine compilation released in 2013 is another fantastic journey through time and space. At the time musicians were trying to capture the sounds of meteorites entering the terrestrial atmosphere thanks to machines developed by NASA engineers, a new generation of analog synthesizers enabled electronic music composers to take over the charts. It seemed the machines were definitely made to serve a radical avant-garde, and many years later, were glad to be able to listen with this perspective, and most of all -- to dance to it. While moving your feet to Cosmic Machine The Sequel, you might identify Francis Lay, recognized as one of the best music composers in France, as well as Rosebud, who had the audacity to remix the main theme from the movie More, created by Pink Floyd. Youll also find "Les Soucoupes Volantes Vertes" from Heldon, the band led by electronic music visionary Richard Pinhas. Pascal Comelade, a friend of his, and worthy heir of the American minimalism also appears on this record, with a cold electronic sound called "Mouvement Décomposé dUn Coup de Marteau." Arpadys, for their part, make an appearance with a more tribal and spatial track that will make you turn the volume up. Christophes "Harp Odyssey," a track influenced by his collaborations with electronic master Jean-Michel Jarre. The father of electroacoustic music, Pierre Schaeffer used to head the Group of Musical Researches, a real musical laboratory in which both artists have worked together, trying to experiment with new sounds. Finally, the legendary "Pop Corn" instrumental from Anarchic System will bring some nice memories to the surface. Each and every one of the artists present on this compilation has dreamt of getting his one-way ticket to the moon. Some of them have managed to tread upon the land of our satellite, but one thing is for sure: all have participated in the spatial conquest on board of the Cosmic Machine. You have the right to get on it. Also includes tracks by Stereo, Queen Samantha, Nicolas Peyrac, Roger Roger, Video Liszt, Pierre Porte, Grand Prix, The Peppers, Joel Fajerman & Jan Yrssen, Moon Birds, Araxis, Georges Rodi, and Michel Magne.” - Because Music.

Pascal Comelade, a friend of his, and worthy heir of the American minimalism also appears on this record, with a cold electronic sound called "Mouvement Décomposé dUn Coup de Marteau." Arpadys, for their part, make an appearance with a more tribal and spatial track that will make you turn the volume up. Christophes "Harp Odyssey," a track influenced by his collaborations with electronic master Jean-Michel Jarre. The father of electroacoustic music, Pierre Schaeffer used to head the Group of Musical Researches, a real musical laboratory in which both artists have worked together, trying to experiment with new sounds. Finally, the legendary "Pop Corn" instrumental from Anarchic System will bring some nice memories to the surface. Each and every one of the artists present on this compilation has dreamt of getting his one-way ticket to the moon. Some of them have managed to tread upon the land of our satellite, but one thing is for sure: all have participated in the spatial conquest on board of the Cosmic Machine. You have the right to get on it. Also includes tracks by Stereo, Queen Samantha, Nicolas Peyrac, Roger Roger, Video Liszt, Pierre Porte, Grand Prix, The Peppers, Joel Fajerman & Jan Yrssen, Moon Birds, Araxis, Georges Rodi, and Michel Magne." - Because Music.

Title: Cosmic Machine: A Voyage Across French Cosmic & Electronic Avantgarde (1970-1980)
Format: Double LP & CD
Label: Because Music
Country: France
Price: $39.00
"At the start of the 70s, France had no petrol, but it had ideas and artists that managed to tip them into the 21st century a full 30 years in advance. Cosmic Machine compiles 20 rare tracks put together with passion and erudition by Uncle O (who previously did the Shaolin Soul compilations) and throws together a collection of stars, a few free-spirits, and also shooting stars. This group of people dont form a scene per se, theyre more like a collection of individuals who, through sheer ingenuity and with all their singularity, managed to break down the barriers between pop and experimental to give birth to a mutant variety of electronic music that owes as much to mobile discos as sound illustration, to the GRM, to the Bogdanoff brothers, to Métal Hurlant, and the European Space Program. Cosmic Machine is a panoramic dive into this epic era when the synthesizer was mans best friend and when the future had a future: our present time. Daft Punk, Air, Justice, Zombie Zombie, or Add N To (X), Stereolab, and Broadcast werent born in incubators. The electric fairy stood above their cradle and theyre all the children of these French pioneers who were among the first to celebrate the union of flesh and circuits. Androids, robots, humans and other celestial creatures, now board the Cosmic Machine. Artists include: Patrick Juvet, Didier Marouani, Droids, François De Roubaix, Space, Universal Energy, Pierre Bachelet, Space Art, The Atomic Crocus, Jean Michel Jarre, Bernard Fevre, Cerrone, Frederic Mercier, Quartz, Rene Roussel, Serge Gainsbourg, Dvwb, Alain Goraguer, Jean-Jacques Perrey, and Rockets." - Because Music.

Title: Beniffer Editions Winter Anthology
Format: 2 Cass/Book
Label: Beniffer Editions
Country: Canada
Price: $40.00
"96 page monster book featuring the visual smegma of Jacob Horwood and Andrew Zukerman and more! Contains Ayal Seniors The Last Screenplay, an unabridged, unwound stammer through his 340972 film ideas, an instant classic, really... The book includes a 4-way split over 2 cassettes, featuring Man Made Hill (Canada), Dolphins into the Future (Belgium), Lead Sister II (Japan) and Crown Now (USA)... Man Made Hill is all of the Jackson 5 (even the dead one) channeled through one white-man with his sub-par pawn-shop electronics and extensive knowledge of "avant-aesthetics". This is guilt-free dance music. Dolphins into the Future is Lieven Martens of Imvated, or whatever label hes doing right now, a reformed nude-noise ruffian now turned onto the New Age by the holographic entities of Jung, Gurdjieff and Watts and trying to replicate the sound a dolphin makes in a napolitaner carton filled with peroxide. Lead Sister II is a one-man Kemialliset Ystavat forging new directions with a battery of home-made instruments and noise-makers. Why this is not a colony of dumpster-diving vegans in the foothills of some 60s parody is a mystery to me. Crown Now is a boy and a girl, a dejected duo brought together because they wanted to make the cheerleading squad. This document of their practice the night before and also the reason why they were rejected is the fourth and final side of your patience." -Beniffer Editions.

Format: LP
Label: Berlin Atonal
Country: Germany
Price: $43.00
"Edition of 500 copies, featuring tracks from Cabaret Voltaire, Miles Whittaker, Fis, and Abdulla Rashim. The Berlin Atonal festival picks up on a tradition begun in 1984 with the publication of two volumes of live recordings from the 1983 edition of the festival. Those records bore witness to the most inventive, adventurous sounds of the festival, and therefore of their time, containing live bits from Psychic TV, La Loora and ZEV. Berlin Atonal Vol. 3 carries this custom three decades forward with selections from four of the standout performances of Berlin Atonal 2014. Of course, Cabaret Voltaires lauded and historic first show in over 20 years is featured, with Richard H. Kirks no-nostalgia and machinery-driven set firmly putting the Cabaret Voltaire project in a future-facing direction. Miles Whittakers surprising and muscular live performance also contributes a cut, as does festival favorite Fis, with his characteristically lumpy, textural soundscapes. Finally, two selections from Abdulla Rashims memorable session gesture toward a possible future for synthesized music. Housed in a gatefold sleeve." - Berlin Atonal.

Title: Des Jeunes Gens Mödernes: Post Punk, Cold Wave et Culture Növö en France, 1978-1983 Volume 2
Format: CD
Label: Born Bad
Country: France
Price: $16.00
"The long-awaited follow-up to Des Jeunes Gens Mödernes (BORNBAD 012LP, 2008), with five killer previously unreleased tracks. Volume 2 continues to explore the vaults of French post-punk, electropop, and no wave. Between the late 70s and mid 80s, in the wake of punk wave and in parallel to other types of music like disco, funk, ska, and reggae, a prolific and chaotic music scene began to develop in France, combining the energy of rock and the nihilism of punk with electronic experimentation. The period was not, on the whole, one of optimism and joy, played out as it was against a background of economic crisis and the cold war. A whole section of Frances youth found itself confronted by the contradictions of the times it was living in: young people were torn between the sensation of living on the edge of an abyss and hope for the dawning of a new world; they were deprived of tangible ideological landmarks but resistant to the post-hippy utopias of the previous generation. In search of an identity, they recognized themselves in the dark lyrics, the cold synthetic music, and the laid-back attitude of the new groups bursting up all over the country, as much in the provinces as in Paris. Des Jeunes Gens Mödernes (Modern Young Men) reactivates this French post-punk/novo diskö/new- and cold-wave scene, highlighting a cross-section of the specific creative diversity of this scene. The new wave drew upon artistic avant-garde movements from the past (Constructivism, Futurism, symbolism, Dadaism, socialist realism, and so on), as well as literature (Romanticism, science fiction, etc.), cinema (new wave, German expressionist cinema), and the latest technological advances (electronic, robotic, nuclear). Drawing on traditional culture as well as the underground subcultures to which various magazines and fanzines gave voice (American countercultures; endless references to William S. Burroughs, for example; pop art, etc.), the new wave embraced all areas of creativity together, and built bridges between the different artistic disciplines (music, visual art, design, literature, cinema...) to an extent never before seen.

Title: Mobilisation Generale: Protest and Spirit Jazz from France 1970-1976
Format: Double LP
Label: Born Bad
Country: France
Price: $28.00
"1968. France, Incorporated. The entire building was being consumed by flames and was slowly collapsing. Nothing would survive. Out of the rubble of the old world jumped the children of Marx and Coca-Cola, ripping the white and blue stripes off the French flag. Yet, the socialist revolution was more mythic than real and music did nothing to mitigate peoples behavior. It was time for innovation. While singles from The Stones, The Who, The Kinks and MC5 provided an incendiary soundtrack for the revolution, it was Black Americans who truly blew the world from its foundations in the 60s. Ornette Coleman, Cecil Taylor, Eric Dolphy, Albert Ayler, and Archie Shepp left behind the jazz of their fathers generation, liberating the notes, trashing the structures, diving headfirst into furious improvisations, inventing a new land without boundaries -- neither spiritual nor political. Free jazz endowed the saxophone with the power to destroy the established order. In 1969, the Art Ensemble Of Chicago arrived at the Théâtre du Vieux Colombier in Paris and a new fuse was lit. Their multi-instrumentalism made use of a varied multiplicity of "little instruments" (including bicycle bells, wind chimes, steel drums, vibraphone and djembe: they left no stone unturned), which they employed according to their inspirations. The groups stage appearance shocked as well. They wore boubous (traditional African robes) and war paint to venerate the power of their free, hypnotic music, directly linked to their African roots. They were predestined to meet up with the Saravah record label (founded in 1965 by Pierre Barouh), already at the vanguard of as-yet unnamed world music. Brigitte Fontaines album Comme à la radio, recorded in 1970 after a series of concerts at the Théâtre du Vieux Colombier, substantiated the union of this heiress to the poetic and politically-committed chanson française with the Art Ensemble Of Chicagos voodoo jazz and the Arab tradition perpetuated by her companion Areski Belkacem. A UFO had landed on the turntables of French teens, who were discovering underground culture via publications like Actuel, Libération, Charlie Hebdo, Rock & Folk and a vigorous free press. For 20 year-olds in the early 1970s, making music was a political act; they grabbed a microphone to advance a cause, not to become rock stars. While the price of oil skyrocketed and Pompidou went overboard building horrible concrete apartment buildings for public housing and "adapting the city for the automobile," some took refuge in the countryside. Alternative communities formed all across France, giving rise to groups (or rather, collectives) with open-minded structures, cheerfully mixing music, theatrical happenings and agitprop, along with a good dose of acid. Projects bordering on the ridiculous were often tolerated (progressive rock was one of the primary banalities the era produced), while those who followed the route paved by spiritual jazz often ended up elsewhere. The vehemence (if not grandiloquence) of their declarations was carried and transcended by the finesse and brilliance of their musicianship. Simultaneously spatial, pastoral and tribal, the tracks in this collection represent an ideal intersection between a sort of psychedelic legacy, the space jazz of Sun Ra and Afro Beat (then being created by Fela in Lagos): they are as much incantations (often driven by the spoken-word), war cries or poems as they are polemics. 1978. Giscard was at the helm. Punk and disco were busily decapitating the last remaining hippies. Peoples blood was still boiling, but it was already too late. The war was over, lost without anyone noticing. Nevertheless, people still tilted at windmills or talked tough in dead-end struggles; a dream is not so far from a nightmare. We knew that an enchanted era had ended, the hope for a brighter future was now behind us and that we would leave behind nothing for our children but a few records. Indeed, ghosts may still crackle from our speakers, as the 45 spins and Brigitte Fontaine asks Areski: "Hé mais je pense à un truc, on ne va pas mourir dans une minute?" (trans. "Hey, I was just thinking, arent we going to die in a minute?"). Features artists such as Alfred Panou & Art Ensemble Of Chicago, Brigitte Fontaine & Areski Belkacem, Atarpop 73 & Le Collectif Le Temps Des Cerises, RK Nagati, Frédéric Rufin & Raphaël Lecomte, François Tusques, Mahjun (Mouvement Anarcho Héroïque des Joyeux Utopistes Nébuleux), Full Moon Ensemble, Baroque Jazz Trio, Michel Roques, Chêne Noir, and Beatrice Arnac.

"Best of the best of French punk tracks. Only French KBD killer tracks. Released for the forthcoming exhibition "Europunk" at Cite de la Musique (Paris - October 2013/January 2014). The first French incarnations of "Le Punk" (pronounced "paink" in numerous locales) were not carbon copies of their foreign exemplars. Babbling, swarming, morphing, genuinely disorganized anarchy, bad intentions transformed into good ones: thats how punk rock (or at least a close approximation) was initially adapted to fit our peculiar French perspective. There was not the slightest network to distribute records or organize concert tours. Older generations were hostile (or worse, compassionate or even paternalistic). There was nothing and no one to forge a connection between the handful of small, isolated groups, fundamentally motivated by a passion for what they deemed true rock n roll (the desire to terrorize the neighborhood arrived soon afterward), each in their own little world, trying to provoke their backwater village or their lame metropolis, and meeting, of course, with total indifference. Artists include: Les Nouveaux Riches,Strychnine, Electrochoc, Gasoline, Sexe A Pile, Soggy, Marie France, Ruth Elyeri, Les Olivensteins, Coronados, Dogs, Warm Gun, Gloires Locales, and Guilty Razors." -Born Bad.

"Inspired by punk and post punk, vibrant scenes dedicated to independent self-actualization by means of self-distributed cassettes - the cheapest and fastest medium - were developing on each side of the Cold Wars confrontational line. Albeit, under quite different circumstances. While there was a DIY euphoria in the West, which would also have had ideological motives, subcultures in the East simply had no other means. Even the first act of replication meant moving into illegal territory, since every duplication had to be authorized by State authorities, just like anything else. The protagonists - musicians, painters, poets, filmmakers, performers - crossed genres and jumped back-and-forth between various styles. Disillusioned, and often ready to jump towards the West, these border crossers defined themselves rather somewhere between non- and anti-political, pursuing self-actualization strategies by means of an extended niche existence. They took refuge in the search for ways of creative self-assertion and communication, looking out in sensual despair, utilizing sounds of rage, linguistic wit and a passion for tinkering. Driven by ubiquitous boredom, equipped with plenty of time and free of economic restraints (or rather possibilities), labor was performed with no regard to the final product, hardly documented and almost never published. With the partial opening of State-controlled media and cultural sites accompanying the beginning agony of the State, conditions changed. Suddenly there was radio airplay of supposedly illegal cassettes and weird noise performed at Palast Der Republik. In the end, full albums by these "other bands" were released on the State-owned label AMIGA. The collapse following soon after relieved the activists remaining in the country who continually had to re-position themselves. Many took different roads, some leading to Rammstein, others to Raster-Noton or groups like To Rococo Rot and Tarwater. The artifacts from that era tell of a stance of refusal in practice. Between being excluded and self-exclusion, truly wayward sounds and means of expression were developed. Bert Papenfuß, Ronald Lippok, Bernd Jestram and Bo Kondren compiled two companion CDs accompanying the long sold-out Zonic special edition Spannung. Leistung. Widerstand. Magnetbanduntergrund DDR 1979-1990, released in 2006, of which the more experimental-electronic pieces are herewith available on the music market for the first time. Features: A. F.

"Post-war apartments dominated the views of Düsseldorf in the early 1980s - cement slabs, the "art bunker" known as the Kunsthalle, and the elevated railway called "The Millipede". Yet reconstruction was in full swing - bank buildings on the "Kö" received postmodern interiors, the old town became stylishly retro-rustic, and advertising agencies displaced industrial companies. Music took all of this on. Punk was finished, but its pathos drifted through pubs and shared flats. At the same time, synthesizers, due to digital electronics, had become increasingly affordable. This music pushed ahead slightly in order to dock onto the electronic sounds of the 1970s krautrock. But most chose the detour via records by Cabaret Voltaire, Throbbing Gristle, or the more unfamiliar experimental sounds on the The Elephant Table Album compilation (1983). Cassettes from labels, like Klar! 80, were available on Aachener Straße. LPs, like those found at Pure Freude on Derendorfer Straße, were also available. This shop served as an umbrella for the disparate strands of the electronic side of post punk. Almost all artists on this compilation could be seen there. Perhaps that is why the encounter with "Electronic Cassette Music" seems like a glimpse into a mysterious parallel world. Indeed, everyone knew of each other, but often only as a name. Kurzschluss was Catherine Ledits project. Where her threatening pads had an almost meditative character, Dirk Grützmanns Le Petit Mort drew listeners into virtually occult scenarios, not far from Current 93. Ledit and Grützmann later collaborated as the duo Temps Perdu?. Trance, as propagated by Chris & Cosey, could have been the inspiration behind the duo Wooden Barrows. Isolated searching found expression in forms of deviant sexuality - a leitmotif in those days. Its astonishing how subtly many of the pieces exemplify this movement. Its almost terrifying on the track by Strafe Für Rebellion when a voice whispers "the cashbox is empty" and a staccato rhythm replaces the ticking of a clock. Ralf Dörper, on his way to international success Propaganda, saw ADD preferring him trapped in a nightmare. The cassette generation did not bother crossing over to pop music. They were pioneers of a music which would develop into drone, ambient or hypnagogic. Features: Konrad Kraft, Deux Balaines Blanches, Ettlinger, Mentocome, Frigorex, Dino Oon, Pfad Der Tugend, Kurzschluss, Wooden Barrows, Le Petit Mort, Strafe Für Rebellion, Maria Zerfall, and ADD." - Bureau B.

Title: Danse Sacrale: 14 Early Avant-Garde and Electronic Compositions for Ballet and Modern Dance
Format: Double LP
Label: Cacophonic
Country: UK
Price: $28.00
"The roots of electronic dance music by definition. An unlikely combination of early recordings by international electronic and avant-garde composers as well as infrequent collaborators retrospectively unified by their commitment to the musical enhancement of 20th-century ballet and the evolution of modern dance. Presenting key exponents of the musique concrète and tape music movements alongside masters of the early electric sound synthesizers, as well as pre/anti-electronic instrument designers with non-conformist and microtonal composers, Danse Sacrale reveals a broad range of truly revolutionary musical and academic advancements that found an improbable, sporadic, and vibrant creative outlet via one of Europes proudest and most sacred cultural institutions. Featuring composers Pierre Henry, Lasry-Baschet, Igor Wakhevitch, Henk Badings, Jean-Claude Vannier, Remi Gassmann, Alwin Nikolais, and Karl-Birger Blomdahl alongside choreographers like Béjart, Balanchine, and Yvonne Georgi, Danse Sacrale unites the unanimously lauded and the relatively unknown with some of their earliest and underexposed achievements. These rare and remastered compositions provide a concise retrospective of a previously undocumented global phenomenon and a global synergy that formed the true foundations of electronic dance music and changed the perceptions of modern music and dance culture in the stern face of adversity and tradition." - Cacophonic.

Title: Musique Concrète: Groupe de Recherches Musicales de la RTF
Format: LP
Label: Cacophonic
Country: UK
Price: $26.00
"Reissue of 1960 BAM label release. Musique Concrète represents an important milestone in the development and progression of the genre of the same name. It marks a crossroad for the genre and its originator, Pierre Schaeffer and another of the genres most important protagonists, Pierre Henry. In 1942, Schaeffer and Jacques Copeau founded the Studio dEssai (renamed Club dEssai in 1946) as part of Radiodiffusion Française studios in order to experiment with radiophonic techniques. In 1948, Schaeffer occupied his time with the manner in which sound recordings "revealed what was hidden in the act of basic acoustic listening". This resulted in a series of studies known as Cinq études de bruits (Five Studies of Noises) (1948). With word of his theories and experiments spreading, Schaeffers studies grew in size and he would need assistance. Pierre Henry was an obvious choice and sound engineer, Jacques Poullin, completed the sonic powerhouse. The group was renamed the Groupe de Musique Concrete. In 1951, RTF gave the trio access to one of the earliest purpose-build electroacoustic studios, furnishing it with state of the art equipment such as a morphophone and a phonogene, both designed by Poullin. The studio attracted composers such as Karlheinz Stockhausen and Edgard Varèse and in that same year Schaeffer and Henry produced and premiered the first opera concrète, "Orphèe 51". Pierre Henry began pursuing projects closer to his own heart, working with experimental filmmakers and choreographers like Maurice Béjart. In 1957, following a particularly prolonged absence on RTF duties, Schaeffer returned unhappy with the direction the group had taken and tabled an idea to revitalize both their approach as well as personnel. As a result, Henry and several other key members soon left. Schaeffer lay the foundations in 1958 for a new collective called Groupe de Recherches Musicales recruiting new members Iannis Xenakis, Henri Sauguet, Luc Ferrari and Michel Philippot as well as ushering in a new steady stream of musicians eager to study, including a young Jean Michel Jarre. Featuring the full versions of these seminal early works (abridged versions of which had previously appeared across two 7" singles on Disques BAM) the recordings presented here are the first fruits of this new alliance and served to lay the bedrock for the future of the Groupe de Recherches Musicales which would later count the likes of Ivo Malec, Philippe Carson, Romuald Vandelle, Edgardo Canton and François Bayle." - Cacophonic.

Title: The Groovy Sounds of 1970s Lebanon
Format: LP
Label: Cedarphon
Country: Lebanon
Price: $19.00
"Beirut, Lebanons beautiful capital city on the Eastern Mediterranean waterfront, was once hailed as "the Paris of the Middle East," until a brutal civil war began in 1975; the country was all but destroyed by the time the violence ended many years later. During the early 1970s, the center of the Middle Easts music industry was located in Beirut. Many great artists flourished in its nightclubs and recording studios as the city became the entertainment playground for the entire Arab world. Some of the greatest Arabic musicians and performers of the 20th century were either living there or frequently passing through -- legends like Fairuz, Sabah, Farid El Atrache, Omar Khorshid, Taroub, the Rahbani Brothers, and many others. This album, which features some of these legends along with others who are less well known, showcases the breadth of musical styles flourishing in Beirut. Arabic pop yeh yeh, Latin jazz, orchestral groove, folk rock melancholia, surf guitar, and a host of beguiling approximations on every genre of the time, yet all singular in their Arabic, cosmopolitan flair. These tracks represent a magnificent period when, for a brief number of years, Beirut was the place to be. Performers include the Bandali Family, Filmon Wehbi, Elias Rahbani, Ziad Rahbani, Taroub, Nabil Abdel Ali, Sabah, Mike Hegazi, and Georgette Sayegh." - Cedarphon.

�??A long overdue compilation of Australias incredible post-punk history, featuring the finest selection of bands from the period 1978-82, with many previously unreleased tracks. This is a fantastically inventive and dynamic time in Australian music history, a time when Australia stepped out of the shadow of overseas influence and asserted its own musical identity for the first time. All of the bands on Cant Stop It! released their music independently, either themselves or through the handful of visionary labels of the time such as Au-go-go, M Squared, Missing Link or Innocent Records. Unfortunately much of the music has since been ignored or forgotten ... until now!�?� Restock/repress of this incredibly well done, indepth and legit comp (which has since received a full page write up in the WIRE) of the elusive Australian scene. Features The Moodists, Voigt 465, The Take, Essendon Airport, The Apartments, Ash Wednesday, Primitive Calculators, Makers Of The Dead Travel Fast, Ron Rude, Xero, The Limp, Fabulous Marquises, The Slugfuckers, Equal Local, Tame Omearas, The Particles, People With Chairs Up Their Noses, Wild West, The Pits and Tch Tch Tch.

Title: Songs For Nao - 14 Bands From Japan
Format: CD
Label: Chapter Music
Country: Australia
Price: $15.00
"Songs for Nao (pronounced "now") is a compilation featuring many incredible Japanese artists... Most work in a rarefied world of wide-eyed, folky psych-pop. Songs For Nao includes new tracks by Maher Shalal Hash Baz, Nagisa Ni Te, Tenniscoats, Kazumi Nikaidoh, Yumbo, Andersens, My Pal Foot Foot, Pervenche and more. Songs For Nao is a taste of an incredible music scene. Isolated from the music industry at large, these artists create genuinely inspired music, fresh even to the ears of the most conditioned music-geek. The release is accompanied by a full colour, 16-page booklet featuring extensive liner notes on each band, and beautiful photos by Eigo Shimojo (a member of Eepil Eepil, one of the bands on the compilation)." - Chapter Music. "I moved to Tokyo in September 2002 in search of new experiences, and ended up staying for a year and a half. I worked teaching English part-time at one of the big chain schools in Japan, which was neither here nor there, but when I wasnt working I was going to as many gigs as I could. I already had a couple of Japanese friends before I got there, and through them I was introduced to all these amazing bands, playing in tiny shoebox venues to audiences of usually about 50 people. Most of the best bands I saw seemed to be connected in one way or another to a record label called Majikick, run by Ueno and Saya, the husband and wife team from the band Tenniscoats. They were like the Prince and Princess of this small, vibrant scene, which was built on ideas about freedom, improvisation, fragile melodies and a kind of drug-free psychedelia. The most amazing thing about bands like Tenniscoats, Maher Shalal Hash Baz, Andersens and My Pal Foot Foot is how they would sound totally different almost every time you saw them. They always had different lineups and instrumentation and played a completely new set at almost every gig. I couldnt understand how they could all write these incredible songs and then just throw them away and write new ones! Most of the bands had a CD or two on Majikick, or at least a CD-R that they would sell at gigs, and I bought whatever I could get my hands on. I listened to these CDs constantly in my little apartment, and maybe it was just being in a different country, not having my all my records and CDs with me, but it was the first time in years that I could just listen over and over to the same music, and find more to love each time. Apart from Nagisa Ni Te and Maher Shalal Hash Baz, who have had some records released in the US and the UK, it seemed like no-one outside Japan had any idea about these bands that I thought were just incredible. So it seemed like a great idea to put together a compilation, and Songs For Nao is what I came up with. I thought of the title because Nao is the name of two of the sweetest people I met in Japan - one a boy, one a girl - and they both play in bands on the CD." - Guy Blackman; Chapter Music.

Title: Strong Love: Songs Of Gay Liberation 1972-1981
Format: CD
Label: Chapter Music
Country: Australia
Price: $16.00
"Strong Love explores the first wave of openly gay songwriting, emerging after New Yorks Stonewall Riots kickstarted the modern gay rights movement in 1969. It took just a few years for the defiant chanting and interlocked arms of early 70s pride marches to reverberate onto record, and Strong Love begins with the earliest-known example, 1972s "A Gay Song" by London hippie collective Everyone Involved. Across 15 tracks, the compilation takes in disarmingly personal folk, uplifting soul, outsider country and dark synth-rock. But tellingly, none of its songs could be considered well-known. New Yorks Steven Grossman released the first major label album by an openly gay artist in 1974, and Tom Robinson hit the UK Top 20 with the fiery "Glad To Be Gay" in 1978, but these are the exceptions. The coy ambivalence of Lou Reed and David Bowie was about as sexually adventurous as the 1970s music industry got, and most Strong Love artists released their own self-funded recordings in very limited numbers. Unlike their lesbian counterparts, who joined forces to create long-lasting record labels, strong distribution networks and considerable sales figures for artists such as Cris Williamson and Holly Near, gay male musicians in the 1970s existed largely in solitary bubbles. Which doesnt mean they didnt carve out niches of their own. Eccentric one-man band Chris Robison played with the New York Dolls and Elephants Memory, while L.A. glam seducer Smokey saw members of the Stooges and Quiet Riot pass through his backing band. Steven Grossman was covered by Twiggy and Scrumbly & Martin are justifiably infamous for their work with San Francisco drag hippies The Cockettes. Whether known or not, what the songs on Strong Love illustrate is the vision, talent and raw courage that drove 1970s songwriters to sacrifice popular careers for the sake of honesty and self-expression. Compiled by Chapter Musics Guy Blackman, with an evocative introduction from drummer Richard Dworkin (who played with Blackberri and Buena Vista and is one of the few to have witnessed many Strong Love artists firsthand), the album is a powerful tribute to pioneering artists whose music has been neglected for too long." -Chapter Music.

Title: Miniatures One + Two
Format: Double CD
Label: Cherry Red
Country: UK
Price: $19.00
"Featuring artists as diverse as The Residents, Robert Fripp, XTCs Andy Partridge, Pete Seeger, Robert Wyatt and The Pretenders Martin Chambers, as well as cover artwork contributed by Ralph Steadman, Morgan Fishers 1980 release Miniatures truly was a first. Overwhelmed with concepts for potential releases, Fisher decided to see how many of these ideas he might be able to squeeze onto just one album. Rather than performing everything himself, he invited 50 musicians he admired to send in tracks of up to one minute in length. They responded with unanimous enthusiasm, and Miniatures was born out of Morgans precise editing and sequencing of these tracks, providing a unique snapshot of the cutting-edge music of the period and achieving legendary status amongst those who cherish such creativity and individuality in the process. Fast forward 15 years, several projects and the development of new realms of communication and data transfer afforded by the internet, and Morgan decided the time was right for a sequel. Little did he know that this project would take six years to complete and involve an international cast of players (taking in 18 countries across five continents), but it proved truly worth both the effort and the wait. The astounding Miniatures 2 brings together over 60 musicians and artists of all genres -- the bizarre, the eccentric, the contemplative, the rebel-rousers, the pioneers and the philosophers and no stone was left unturned in its creation. As with the original album, one minute creations were composed, then sequenced and edited by Morgan, again meeting with rave reviews and an acknowledgement that Fisher had produced something both original and vital to those with any interest in music existing outside the mainstream. Comprising both legendary tiny masterpiece collections, this new set brings together all one hundred and thirteen tracks (yes, 113!) in one two-disc collection for the first time, freshly boosted and tweaked for 2008. New artwork and sleeve-notes have also been provided by Morgan himself." - Cherry Red. Artists include: The Residents, Robert Wyatt, Fred Frith, Lol Coxhill, Steve Miller, Robert Fripp, Ron Geesin, Ralph Steadman, Trevor Wishart, Ivor Cutle, Metabolist, Gavin Bryars, 1/2 Japanese, David Cunningham (The Flying Lizards), Etron Fou Leloublan, Terry Riley, Meredith Monk, David Cunningham, & Moondog (Louis Hardin).

Price: $8.00
“Although “Pillows and Prayers” is the best-known sampler of the label, its precursor “Perspectives and Distortions” (1981) includes many non-Cherry Red artists, which makes it very interesting. In fact, when I bought this compilation in 1981, it was a stunning overview of British experimental rock/pop/alterntive music, played by loads of people Id never heard of… and a few (like Robert Fripp) that I knew. Time tells us that experimental music can often date really quickly, but most of the music on this comp doesnt. It holds together beautifully, which is surprising because putting arch punks like the Virgin Prunes and Mark Perry in with Kevin Coyne and Robert Fripp, for instance, seems quite out there. Still a lot of names here that I don’t know/remember (A.Tent, the Lemon Kittens), but Matt Johnson (soon to be The The) and Eyeless in Gaza became crucial listening. Listen to it today, and you too might be inspired to check out some new names.” Totally uncommercial music which bordered on the Avant Garde; Outsider Music before anyone thought up the name." - Lion.

Title: Futurisk-Lonely Streets Remixes
Format: LP
Label: Cititrax
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Minimal Wave takes an old sound in a new direction entirely, giving Futurisks classic Lonely Streets a modern shake-up through a remix package from current artists out now on MWs sublabel reserved for new music and old favorites, Cititrax. Futurisk, an electro-punk group made legendary by their anarchistic records and explosive live shows, mysteriously disappeared from a thriving scene in 1984. With an electric and dynamically layered sound (created with pre-midi instrumentation), the South Florida group left an indelible mark in the crates of disco and minimalist collectors dotted around corners of the world, including LCD Soundsystems James Murphy (who gave a complimentary wink to Futurisk in 2003 by using Push Me Pull You (Pt. 2) on the delightful Colette # 5 DFA Comp CD). Minimal Waves own history with Futurisk runs a few years back, starting first by including an unreleased 1982 version of the track Meteoright on the labels Found Tapes vinyl LP in 2007. Subsequently, Minimal Wave released the retrospective full-length vinyl Player Piano LP to celebrate the bands 30th anniversary last year, culling material recorded between the years 1980 to 1982, with all of the tracks on their two 7-inch releases mixed in with rare studio recordings and early 4-track tapes. The Futurisk Lonely Streets Remixes includes remixes by four of the bands biggest fans, each of whom have a sound as iconic as the band themselves: Chris Carter (Throbbing Gristle, Chris & Cosey), Tom Furse (The Horrors), Prince Language (DFA, Editions Disco) and Complexxion from the UK." -Cititrax

"For the remixes, we wanted to make sure that they werent modernized or techno versions of the tracks, but remixes with the same analogue and dance/rock sensibilities of the time when the original tracks were created, utilizing those very same stem tracks. I believe we have accomplished this with the forthcoming Lonely Streets Remix 12inch vinyl. The first remix 12inch will be dedicated to the track Lonely Streets, with a remix by synth legend Chris Carter, whose version is one that I would have dreamed of doing back in 1982, had we the time and funds and equipment. Prince Languages version captures the feel of the song beautifully with the utilization of all the stems, especially the real drum tracks that were part of Futurisks signature sound, stirring up the No Wave styles that also influenced us at the time. It was also a pleasure to hear Tom Furses Moroder-esque electropunk take, sounding like a missing track from a late 1970′s sci-fi flick and finally Complexxions track with the feel and approach of Arthur Baker, Martin Rushent, Daniel Miller and Kraftwerk of course, all of which were big influences on the members of Futurisk" - Jeremy Kolosine (founding member of Futurisk).

“A superb album, compiling electronic synth pop, cold wave and minimal tracks from the Color Tapes label, spanning 1981-1985. The Color Tapes label was the brainchild of a young Gary Ramon after being inspired by cassette labels such as Fuck Off Tapes, Weird Noise and other underground UK labels; also by the music of the late 70s and early 80s such as Cabaret Voltaire, Suicide, Kraftwerk, Depeche Mode, Throbbing Gristle, Fad Gadget, as well as electronic musicians such as John Cage, La Monte Young, Stockhausen, Pierre Henry, Moondog, and others. The tracks from this compilation originally came out only on limited cassette runs of 100 copies sold at gigs, mail order and record shops such as Small Wonder Records. The majority of these tracks from these UK garage cold wave bands used mostly synthesizer, drum machines and sequencers such as EMS VCS3, Minimoog, Korg MS-20, Roland Juno 6, SH-09, TR-808. Remastered from original analogue source tapes by Denis Blackham, this is a must-have collection for electronic, synth and cold wave collectors. Includes a full colour illustrated poster of all the cassette sleeves (70+ releases) made by the label between 1979-1986.” - Color Tapes.

Title: Cold Waves of Color
Format: CD
Label: Color Tapes
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
With two bonus tracks not included on the LP version. "Collection of rare UK cold wave tracks taken from Color Tapes label cassettes released in micro editions between 1981-1985. Color Tapes was the brainchild of future Sun Dial leader Gary Ramon: "Living in East London, it was a very grey and bleak time. Huge imposing tower blocks, gasworks and concrete just about everywhere. You couldnt walk through some areas without the risk of being shot at by an air rifle, or worse. Luckily, salvation was in the music. The musical landscape was changing. I saw a very early gig by an unknown all-synth band called Depeche Mode at a dingy pub under a flyover called The Bridge House in Canning Town, London. Following this I saw Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five and started buying records by the likes of Afrika Bambaataa. At the other end of the musical spectrum, we were picking up records by Stockhausen, John Cage, Pierre Henry and Moondog, and combing junk shops for anything else that looked interesting!" The UK cassette scene and DIY ethos were thriving. Color Tapes was born. Home multi-track recorders were luxury items. They had to make do with sound on sound recorders, bouncing between reel-to-reel and cassette machines if they wanted stereo. What youre about to hear for the first time since those days is a snapshot of Color Tapes: released material and other unissued tracks too. This compilation is the first of a series of Color Tapes/Lion Productions releases of material from the Color Tapes archives.” - Color Tapes.

"Following on from the superb first volume, here is the second volume of electronics, synth pop, cold wave and minimal tracks culled from the archives of the legendary COLOR TAPES UK cassette label from the 1980s. These tracks originally came out as micro editions on cassette back then some of which are also unreleased too. It includes rare tracks by the likes of: Lives of Angels, Disintegrators, The Lord, WeR7, Mystery Plane and Berserk in a Hayfield. 180 gram vinyl edition with full colour poster plus a rare reprint of issue one of Color Tapes own "Purple Twilight" fanzine from 1985, that features articles on such bands as Lives of Angels, Modern Art, Legendary Pink Dots, and Cleaners From Venus. A superb document from the 80s UK cassette underground scene. Remastered from the original source tapes by Denis Blackham, this is a must-have for synth and cold wave collectors! "Theres some real gold inside, not least in The Lords kosmic electro-garage-punk mission, Transvision, or the wiry EBM of Beserk In A Hayfields Pulse, but also the swirling noise blow-out of WeR7s Masterful of Ceremonies (Edit), and the flanging garage-punk strut of Elixir Vapor by Disintegrators, plus a handful of icy, cold and crisp 808 workouts Lives of Angels and Body Electric." - Boomkat.

Price: $25.00
"Latest collection of rare cold wave from the Color Tapes archives also includes a full colour poster plus a rare reprint of issue 2 of Color Tapes own Purple Twilight fanzine from 1985, featuring articles on bands such as Bushido and Mystery Plane, plus The Subway Organization cassette catalogue from 1985. An essential document from the 80s UK cassette underground scene. Praise for the series: “Must have collection of English post-punk synth rarities, sourced from the legendary Color Tapes label, remastered by Denis Blackham, all presented on vinyl for the first time! Its highly likely that these tracks have been barely heard beyond their original 100 edition tape pressings in the early 80s, and thusly this is a bit of a treasure trove, especially when considering the quality of the masters. This is the realest deal for people into minimal wave, Dark Entries and OG wave music. Dont sleep!” – Boomkat review. The majority of these tracks from these UK garage cold wave bands used mostly synthesizer, drum machines and sequencers such as EMS VCS3, Minimoog, Korg MS-20, Roland Juno 6, SH-09, TR-808 – so you know how they could sound. These machines today are part of the history of the development of electronic music in the UK." - Lion Productions.

Title: Bay Area Retrograde (BART) Vol 1
Format: LP
Label: Dark Entries
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Bay Area Retrograde (BART) Volume 1 is Dark Entries first compilation of underground music from San Francisco (and the greater Bay Area) in the 1980s. Towards the end of the 70s, San Francisco experimental music clashed with the aftermath of punk and gave birth to a vibrant underground scene. By the early to mid 80s the DIY music scene of the Bay Area was a hotbed for experimental and quirky new wave, post punk, and synthpop, quite similar to New Yorks No Wave scene and Berlins Neue Deutsche Welle. This compilation literally connects the (transit) lines between these varied musical offerings and tells the secret story of eleven forgotten Bay Area bands and contains four previously unreleased tracks on vinyl, until now! BART Volume 1 features a Korg-heavy assault from Danvilles utterly obscure Nominal State; two little-known left-field electronic dance gems from Batang Frisco and Quiet Room; Berkeleys answer to darkwave, Necropolis of Love; a synth-driven drama fest from drag performance troupe Wasp Women; quirky lo-fi gothic pop from one man band Distant Thunder; a gay Hi-NRG anthem delivered by Danny Boy and the Serious Party Gods; two lesser know gems from SF synth legends Voice Farm and Los Microwaves; and the futuristic pulsing synth-punk of Standard of Living and the Units. All tracks have been carefully remastered by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. Each LP is housed in a large 6-panel fold out poster by with liner notes by Johnny Ray Huston, original photos, fliers and artwork documenting this fertile period. BART is more widely know as the acronym for Bay Area Rapid Transit, the main rail transportation system for the San Francisco Bay Area and the band on this compilation. This LP is by no means a definitive compilation but merely opens the tunnel to the underground sounds of the Bay!" - Dark Entries.

"The first release on Decemberism records is a document of the temporary bar that the artists Lucy McKenzie and Paulina Olowska ran for one month in Warsaw, 2003, in collaboration with Foundation Gallery Foksal. In a limited release of 1000, with extravagant pop-up gatefold sleeve, the LP presents the music of: donAteller, Bianca Glazebrook, Mathilde Rosier, Nightshift [forthcoming release on Kompakt], Marcin Dutka. All of whom played live in the illegal salon, many performing material specially written for Nova Popularna. An eclectic mix including house, show tunes and prepared piano, the record reflects the amalgam of finesse that was that place. donAteller is an ongoing collaborative project from London. The work comprises records, CDs, live performance, video, various forms of publicity and other strategies associated with the promotion and distribution of pop music. All tracks involve the re-editing and mis-matching of popular melodies and lyrics. donaAteller are, were, or have been, at various times Ed Liq, Mark Leckey, Bonnie Camplin and Enrico David. They have released CDs, artefacts and 7�?�s through High Society Records, Cabinet and GBE.  Bianca Glazebrook was born in 1975 in London. She studied vocals at the Warsaw Academy of Music, graduating in 2000.  Biancas repertoire is a mixture of classical jazz, blues and cabaret songs, which she performs in galleries and salons in Warsaw and London. She also performs with experimental audio-visual group RH+, whose first recordings are to be release soon.  Mathilde Rosier lives and works in the rural outskirts of Versailles, devoting her time to filmmaking, painting and song writing. Her work featured here was performed live as a duet with a hidden piano which emanated from behind a curtain, actually generated by a soundsystem.  Nightshift are the Berlin artists Makus Selg and Marcel Hüppauff. Their music blends samples from Ibiza house, soul and cock rock with vocals, performed in a ravishing style. Releases include on their own Parfüm label, through L`AGE D´OR / LADO Musik and we currently await the Christmas 2004 release of their first album Still Crazy After All These Years on DIAL records.  Marcin Dutka was born in 1974, and studied painting and mural design in the Academy of Fine Art in Warsaw, finishing his MA degree in 1999. Since seven years old he had taken violin lessons, but when twenty he decided to concentrate on investigations in music with piano. He uses piano as a whole body instrument. He still works in fine art, painting and music and often combines all of the above. Some of the recorded concerts include: Teatr Studio, â Szpachla na Fortepianâ 2004, Kielce â Preparated Pianoâ 2003, Marcin Dutka also makes music for short length feature films.  Decemberism is a label based in Glasgow devoted to new music and the spoken word. Particular attention to detail is given considering vinyl LPs and their attendant sleeves as objects of beauty. Upcoming releases for 2005 include Cosey Fanni Tutti, Lucy McKenzie and Paulina Olowska, Bonnie Camplin, Alasdair Gray and Joanne Tatham and Tom O Sullivan." - Decemberism.

After five years of intense, passionate and sometimes painful work, Die Schachtel (in collaboration with RAI) is proud to announce the release of the long-awaited massive book + 6CD boxed edition dedicated to some of the most compelling Italian radio works which took part in the prestigious Prix Italia, a world-famous contest established by the RAI (the National Italian broadcasting company) in the 50s and still alive today, aimed to award the best and most uncompromising audio-visual works produced throughout the world. The Prix Italia and Radiophonic Experimentation presents seven original radio plays -- some of them previously-unreleased -- which entered the competition from 1961 to 1981, complete with two audio interviews of some of the participants. The works have been taken from the original RAI tapes, carefully restored and impeccably re-mastered by Giuseppe Ielasi, making them a splendid listening experience. The accompanying 400-page book (in Italian and English) features seven essays written by some of the most prominent experts in this field, plus a long interview with Mr. Sermonti and the complete transcriptions (again both in Italian and English) of all the featured works. Curated with painstaking attention to detail by Angela Ida De Benedictis and Maddalena Novati (authors of the celebrated New Music At The Radio and Nine Oscillators books, both devoted to the RAI Studio di Fonologia), the enclosed book takes advantage of the impeccable English translation by Mr. Mark Weir and the classic design by Dinamomilano, making it an essential reading in understanding in-depth the musical and semiological aspects of these outstanding works, composed and realized by some of the greatest geniuses of modern Italian music.

"The Difficult Fun compilation introduces an additional 3 equally adventurous bands and repeated visits to difficultfun.org had me pretty keyed-up to get my hands on a copy. Sharing the A side with Antifamily, Philosophy Queen bring a fractured drop in fidelity to beautifully render a fragile and hazy display of emotion, "Lucy" a.k.a. "defeat is not important/defeat is not unimportant" is a rough-hewn gem. For the flip, Hellogabalus celebrate the damaged acoustic sonorities of their instruments. Then the brilliant Asja Auf Capri round things out with a tempered strut of Zick Zack/Ata Tak but without all the pomp and pose of the Neue Deutsche Welle. The packaging is a kit composed of six parts that beg interaction and offer a multiplicity by design. A card inserted into my copy includes a phrase that I think might be Marxist in origin. This is so much more fun than the bulk of what hits the singles rack these days." - AG, Other Music.

"9 tracks. 9 artists. 38 minutes. Clear vinyl. Clear Cover. No identifying marks. 500 copies. The first two releases in our self-styled anonymous series. The representational analysis of music and the nostalgic sick bucket trip of music journalists provided the impetus for us to commission this series of releases. Wild boar attacks in France and Austrian immigration police also played a part. Only Peter knows the identity of all the participants, and he can neither read nor write; though he did whisper something about Madrid and biology.

Collector’s edition (+8 euros): first 100 copies comes with transparent vinyl+CD version with 2 bonus tracks and handmade CD cover album of Non Plus Ultra 1980-1989 Vol.2. After a long process of searching, restoring and a careful remastering, we are pleased to celebrate the thirteenth reference by Domestica Records: Non Plus Ultra 1980-1989 Vol.2; we present a very carefully selected collection of hard-to-find tracks from the vanguard Spanish techno scene from the 80s. All the material featured on the Non Plus Ultra 1980-1989 Vol.2 has never been officially released before: most of these tracks should be regarded as demos although some bands had the chance to record them on cassette or reel-to-reel, and even in a few cases could have had a limited distribution. This has made it possible for us to recover some of these recordings which we believe should not be cast into oblivion. We present, for the second time, a repertoire of some pioneer groups, which are as unknown as they are interesting, creative, and ahead of their times. After nearly thirty years of silence they have stood the passage of time and still sound as contemporary as they did then. For the first time they will be released in LP format." - Domestica

Title: Harry Smiths Complete Anthology Of American Folk Music
Format: 8 LP Box Set
Label: Doxy
Country: Italy
Price: $174.00
"Now for the first time ever all together on vinyl a complete box set: 4 double LPs featuring the 3 original double LP volumes (Ballads, Social Music, Songs) along with the great LOST Country Music & Bluegrass double LP that remained unissued for almost 50 years. Compiled by Harry Smith contemporaneously with the first three volumes (which were originally released in 1952), it includes tracks by the Monroe Bros., Carter Family, Robert Johnson, Bukka White, Lead Belly, Uncle Dave Macon and Sleepy John Estes and more! The box set is actually not a box, but is modelled after the old 78 rpm multiple record storage sleeve, where the albums are stored in sleeves that are pages in a book. The importance of Harry Smiths work can not be overstated. Not only did he single-handedly save much of American folk music from extinction, but when he handed his record collection over to Smithsonian folkways in 1952, he opened the floodgates for the American folk revival of the following decade. Not since John and Alan Lomax had anyone paid so much attention to saving the American folk song from extinction, but unlike the Lomaxes, Smith was not a government worker armed with a tape recorder, he was just a guy from Portland, Oregon armed with a love of music and an insatiable curiosity. So, when the U.S. Armed Forces began melting down old records to be used as shellac during WWII, Smith kicked into high gear, buying up as many old 78s from the 20s and 30s as he could find. Much of the music found here then comes from a time before television -- arm-in-arm with rock & roll -- began beaming its über-culture into every household in America, erasing much of what had grown up locally. Prior to WWII, America was in many ways no more than a patchwork of territories, with distinct local cultures and musical traditions reaching both far into the immigrant past of each areas inhabitants, but also into a future firmly rooted in the newness and adventure (as well as hardships) of life on this new continent." -Doxy

"A little bit of history is a dangerous thing. How then would a present-day acolyte of punk rocks strict regimen explain how Pete Shelly launched an avant-garde DIY label while riding high on the British charts and touring internationally back in 1979 and 80? Loving the art of records and their wayward appeal, it was only natural for Shelley and Francis Cookson to conceive Groovy Records as a way to make some truly freaky (and decidedly un-punk rock) records, and do as much of the work of making the records themselves as they could. These releases represent some of the farthest-out sessions on the wild-to-begin-with late-70s Manchester scene. That three of these four albums were released in the space of one big year, 1980 the one real year of Groovy Records existence, is further testament to the swirl of passions in swiftly morphing times. Now for the first time ever, these four aural tomes are collected together for CD release with all original packaging included in miniature (plus an exclusive Shelley interview!) -- so what are you waiting for? Its been over thirty years now -- you can finally get Groovy on digital." 4CD BOX includes: Free Agents £3.33, Pete Shelleys Sky Yen, Sally Smmit and Her Musicians Hanaghar and Strange Men in Sheds with Spanners." - Drag City.

Price: $18.00
"A collection of Scottish recordings by ALAN LOMAX, 1951-57, compiled by ALASDAIR ROBERTS. In the summer of 1951, Alan Lomax made his first trip to Scotland on the recommendations of folksinger Ewan MacColl and poet, song-collector Hamish Henderson. Traveling through the Scottish Lowlands, Lomax and Henderson recorded pipe tunes, childrens games, Robert Burns compositions and dozens of ballads from farm laborers, fishwives, and the Scottish Traveling folk. Lomax wasnt just impressed by the variety of the countrys traditional music, he was astounded by the depth of the Scots knowledge and appreciation of it. Whaur the Pig Gaed on the Spree commemorates the 60th anniversary of Lomaxs first Scottish recordings and acknowledges their profound effect on Scotlands folk revival.Curated by Roberts and produced in collaboration with the Alan Lomax Archives Global Jukebox label, the record is a startlingly diverse portrait of Lowland traditional music and song: from gentle to rumbustious, hilarious to heartbreaking.

Format: Book
Label: Drag City
Country: USA
Price: $40.00
"White Glove Test: Louisville Punk Flyers 1978-1994 is a rich visual history of an ephemeral and overlooked art form: the DIY concert poster. Beautiful, funny, and profane, the collection of more than 700 flyers compiled here vividly represents the golden age of this fugitive street art, revealing a neglected facet of punks expressive force. Clipped, collaged, and photocopied, meticulously hand-painted and lettered, or designed on a glowing computer screen in the early days of desktop publishing, these flyers were outsider broadcasts stuck to phone poles and storefronts, a makeshift gallery installed with staple guns and wheat paste. As a lavishly detailed document of Louisvilles vibrant and diverse music scene, this book offers an insiders view of one seminal communitys rise from bold beginnings to eminent, international status. The images also chart the thriving, interconnected underground that extended well beyond New York and Los Angeles, offering a parallax view of American punk from an influential yet removed location. Assiduously assembled from rare originals, sure to appeal to any fan of independent music in Louisville and beyond, White Glove Test uncovers a previously hidden history of prodigious do-it-yourself production, illustrating a national phenomenon in microcosm and illuminating a vital style of pre-internet social media.

Format: CD
Label: Dust-to-Digital
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"For the traveling recording men of the late 1920s, Arkansas offered enticing pickings. The region was thronged with vigorous, idiosyncratic string bands. This album carries the listener from the hillbilly music craze of the 20s to the song-based country music of the late 30s. Scarcely more than a decade, but a period, in music as in all American life, of galvanic change. This CD serves as the soundtrack album to the newly-released photograph book, Making Pictures: Three for a Dime by Maxine Payne. All of the photos in this package are from the same cache of photographs taken by the Massengil family in their mobile photo-booth trailer throughout rural Arkansas in the 1930s-1940s.

"It is indeed gratifying to know our program has made so many minds and hearts drift back to the earlier days when all was well, when the hoss hair pullers of old were in due form and all parties concerned were in a receptive mood for tipping of the fantastic toe... My aggregation from this district claim that their music and songs are not suggestive of anything except good and wholesome exercise ... So everybody come to the Arkansas Ozarks, where you can eat the best fruit in the world; where home-cured meat is found in the smokehouse and corn and hay in the barn; where you can juice your own cow, feed your own chickens, fish in the wonderful White River, meet these men of the Missouri Pacific and natives, and you will then say, Yes, indeed, you have the most wonderful country in the world." --Henry Harlin Smith, March 1926 on Hot Springs radio station KTHS

“Includes eight-page booklet and download code. Reed instruments are capable of some of the most impassioned music on the planet, due to the malleability of the reeds themselves -- historically made of plant tissue -- which vibrate when air hits them. The origin of most reed instruments is steeped in rural, pastoral culture. Many insistent, loud, often joyful reed instruments have always been played outdoors as traditional accompaniment for dancing and celebrations. This compelling album is the second volume in the Excavated Shellac release series, featuring rare, never-before-issued 78-RPM records from around the world centered on a unique theme. The previous volume (Excavated Shellac: Strings (DTD 044CD)) focused on stellar stringed-instrument performances. This release examines some of the most intense and hypnotic music set to disc during the early years of international recording, all featuring reed instruments.. All records have been carefully transferred and mastered. Featuring rare and historic photos, jaw-dropping graphics from the 78-RPM era, and extensive liner notes by compiler Jonathan Ward, founder and author of the acclaimed Excavated Shellac website.

Country: USA
Price: $39.00
“What happens when a 78 collector marries a collector of antique photographs? Lead Kindly Light: recordings of rural Southern music: old time, string band music from Appalachia, extremely rare country blues and African American gospel singing from 1924-1939. A portrait of the rural American South between the dawn of the twentieth century and World War II, Lead Kindly Light brings together two CDs of traditional music from early phonograph records and a fine hardcover book of never-before-published vernacular photography. North Carolina collectors Peter Honig and Sarah Bryan have spent years combing backroads, from deep in the Appalachian mountains to the cotton and tobacco lowlands, in search of the evocative music and images of the pre-War South. The music of Lead Kindly Light presents outstanding lesser-known recordings by early stars of recorded country music, as well as rarely- and never-reissued treasures by obscure country, blues, and gospel artists. The photographs, mainly images of the rural and small-town South, are richly textured depictions of family life, work, and fun, and the often accidental beauty of the vernacular snapshot. 159 photographs from the collection of Sarah Bryan reproduced in full color. 46 audio recordings from the 78 RPM record collection of Peter Honig. 176-page hardcover book with 2 CDs. 8.5 inches x 6.5 inches.

Format: CD
Label: Dust-to-Digital
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Recordings from 1969 of Tuvan folk music and throat-singing with liner notes by Dr. Pekka Gronow of the University of Helsinki. With the advent of the folk music revival in the 1960s, a new interest in Tuvan music swept through Asia and Eastern Europe. Capitalizing on this appeal, these 16 recordings were issued in 1969 in the Soviet Union. Dust-to-Digital is proud to reissue for the first time on compact disc these traditional performances including several khoomei songs plus one modern take on the classic Tuvan sound. In khoomei, the singer simultaneously produces two more distinct musical notes: a low, sustained bass note and a flute-like higher note. Tuvan sheep herders often practiced khoomei in an effort to calm animals and appease spirits. The effect is hypnotic, eerie, and drone-like, unlike any sound youve heard come out of a cowboy. The Republic of Tuva lies between Russia and Mongolia in the Altai Mountains, at the geographical center of Asia. Tuva is a land of mountains, lakes and rivers. Although the geographical area of Tuva is as large as the state of Florida, it has only 300,000 inhabitants." -Dust-to-Digital.

Title: Ola Belle Reed and Southern Mountain Music on the Mason-Dixon Line
Format: Book/ 2CD
Label: Dust-to-Digital
Country: USA
Price: $39.00
"Ola Belle Reed and Southern Mountain Music on the Mason-Dixon Line is the first in-depth look at the life of Ola Belle Reed, a groundbreaking artist and one of the all-time greatest performers of authentic, old-time music. Born to a musical family in the mountains of Ashe County, North Carolina, in 1913, Reed became a prolific songwriter and performer, known for her unique style of banjo playing and singing. Reed inspired many musicians throughout her life, eventually becoming one of the leading lights of the folk music revival and winning the prestigious National Heritage Fellowship; in 2015, 13 years after her death in 2002, her influence continues to reverberate. In January of 1966, folklore graduate student Henry Glassie made the first professional solo recordings of Ola Belle Reed, travelling from Philadelphia to the town of Oxford, Pennsylvania to see Reed, Alex Campbell, and the New River Boys and Girls play their exciting brand of Southern mountain music live, on the air, in the back of the Campbells Corner general store. Over the next two years, Glassie -- who went on to become one of the United States most celebrated folkorists, a distinguished professor, and a world-renowned scholar -- recorded Reeds extensive repertoire, while also chronicling the remarkable story of the migration of communities from the Blue Ridge Mountains toward the Mason-Dixon Line before WWII. In 2009, Maryland state folklorist Clifford Murphy struck out to discover whether this rich musical tradition still existed in the small Maryland, Delaware, and Pennsylvania towns where it once flourished. Murphy, amazed by what he encountered, began making audio recordings to document the descendants of Ola Belle Reeds musical legacy. This first-ever release of Reeds 1960s recordings, which were deposited in Indiana University Bloomingtons Archives of Traditional Music, is counter-balanced by a disc of Murphys recordings of Reeds descendants and those within her Appalachian community whom she inspired. This deluxe edition, presented as a 256-page hardcover book with two CDs of remastered recordings, highlights Reeds deep repertoire -- folk ballads, minstrel songs, country standards, and originals -- and traces the impact that her music made and is still making today. This project is a co-production between Dust-to-Digital, Maryland State Arts Council, and Indiana University. Includes performances by Ola Belle Reed, Dave Reed, Alex Campbell, Hugh Campbell, Zane Campbell, Burton DeBusk, the DeBusk-Weaver Family, Burl Kilby, T.J.

Format: Double CD & Book
Label: Dust-to-Digital
Country: USA
Price: $39.00
"In 1947, 48 and 59, renowned folklorist Alan Lomax went behind the barbed wire into the Mississippi State Penitentiary at Parchman. Armed with a reel-to-reel tape deck -- and, in 1959, a camera -- Lomax documented as best an outsider could the stark and savage conditions of the prison farm, where the black inmates labored "from cant to cant," chopping timber, clearing ground, and picking cotton for the state. They sang as they worked, keeping time with axes or hoes, adapting to their condition the slavery-time hollers that sustained their forbears and creating a new body of American song. Theirs was music, as Lomax wrote, that "testified to the love of truth and beauty which is a universal human trait." - Dust-to-Digital.

"A few strands of wire were all that separated the prison from adjoining plantations. Only the sight of an occasional armed guard or a barred window in one of the frame dormitories made one realize that this was a prison. The land produced the same crop; there was the same work for blacks to do on both sides of the fence. And there was no Delta black who was not aware of how easy it was for him to find himself on the wrong side of those few strands of barbed wire ... These songs are a vivid reminder of a system of social control and forced labor that has endured in the South for centuries, and I do not believe that the pattern of Southern life can be fundamentally reshaped until what lies behind these roaring, ironic choruses is understood." --Alan Lomax, 1958

"Black prisoners in all the Southern agricultural prisons in the years of these recordings participated in two distinct musical traditions: free world (the blues, hollers, spirituals and other songs they sang outside and, when the situation permitted, sang inside as well) and the work-songs, which were specific to the prison situation, and the recordings in this album represent that complete range of material, which is one of the reasons this set is so important: it doesnt just show this or that tradition within Parchman, but the range of musical traditions performed by black prisoners. I know of no other album that does that." --Bruce Jackson, 2013

Price: $48.00
"Using modern technology, Patrick Feaster is on a mission to resurrect long-vanished voices and sounds--many of which were never intended to be revived. Over the past thousand years, countless images have been created to depict sound in forms that theoretically could be "played" just as though they were modern sound recordings. Now, for the first time in history, this compilation uses innovative digital techniques to convert historic "pictures of sound" dating back as far as the Middle Ages directly into meaningful audio. It contains the worlds oldest known "sound recordings" in the sense of sound vibrations automatically recorded out of the air -- the groundbreaking phonautograms recorded in Paris by Édouard-Léon Scott de Martinville in the 1850s and 1860s -- as well as the oldest gramophone records available anywhere for listening today, including inventor Emile Berliners recitation of "Der Handschuh," played back from an illustration in a magazine, which international news media proclaimed to be the oldest audible "record" in the tradition of 78s and vintage vinyl. Other highlights include the oldest known recording of identifiable words spoken in the English language (1878) and the worlds oldest surviving "trick recording" (1889). But Pictures of Sound pursues the thread even further into the past than that by "playing" everything from medieval music manuscripts to historic telegrams, and from seventeenth-century barrel organ programs to eighteenth-century "notations" of Shakespearean recitation. In short, this isnt just another collection of historical audio--it redefines what "historical audio" is. The CD is packaged in a deluxe 144-page hardback book (10 x 8 inches) with 164 full-color images with gold-foil stamping on the cover and spine." -Dust-To-Digital.

Title: Midnite Spares
Format: LP
Label: Efficient Space
Country: Australia
Price: $25.00
"The Efficient Space label follows its acclaimed 2016 Sky Girl compilation (EFFICIENT 002CD/LP) with Midnite Spares. Here, Australian music devotees András Fox and Instant Peterson hold a candle to overlooked avant-pop and electronic works by antipodean artists and outsiders working through the 80s and 90s. Through co-presenting their weekly radio show "Strange Holiday", the duo slowly upturned their locale for inspiration - archives, country bookstores, private collections and convenience stores - searching for a place to anchor their own identities in the oceans of the island continent. The ten tracks here acknowledge a minor history, passed on via a network of friends, friends of friends, the libraries of radio station 3RRR and more often than not, the artists themselves. Renowned mixed media artist Maria Kozic enters with the mysterious downbeat of "Trust Me", her partner Philip Brophy responsible for digital and analog sonic construction (as the MK Sound). A recurring character in András and Instant Petersons investigations, Brophy reappears with a score piece from his divisive feature film Salt, Saliva, Sperm and Sweat (1988), recorded as → ↑ → (pronounced "Tch Tch Tch"). Other links are thread under the surface. Melbourne inner north experimentalist David Chesworth explores his Australiana song-craft leading Whadya Want? on "Open Spaces". The short lived project also featured Philip Jackson, whose duo The Couch is restored from Fast Forwards dance issue - a pioneering cassette fanzine published by early-80s 3RRR personality Bruce Milne. The collection binds a certain musicianship thats indifferent to fame or chart success, although some artists unwittingly experienced this before and after. Poets Of The Machines Grace Jones techno-wave was a modest moment for Coral Island and Red Stripe, an English migrant who once celebrated a #1 UK Christmas single with an acapella cover of "Yazoo", while the morbid coming of age electronics of Foot And Mouth is a lesser known prologue to Sean Greenway and Matty Whittles rise as legendary teen punks heroes God. Quickly becoming a modern dancefloor hit, Mumbo Jumbos sole release "Wind It Up" is only now basking in its brilliance. The remaining figures shape the diversity further. Theres Sydney dub addicts The Igniters, Mixs groovy synth song about masturbation and the Cameron Allen and Graham Bidstrup soundtrack for petrol headed "ozploitation" film, Midnite Spares (1983) -- the compilations namesake." - Efficient Space.

Title: Oz Waves
Format: LP
Label: Efficient Space
Country: Australia
Price: $25.00
“Efficient Space continue to expose Australias esoteric musical history with Oz Waves - a collection of 80s DIY recordings, compiled by odd wave anthropologist Steele Bonus. Definitive proof that inhabitants of the Down Underground were links in a global network of creative kooks, Oz Waves connects those who utilized mobile recording rigs and small press releases to create and disseminate misfit synth-punk, tape loop experiments, and inner city pop. Through overseas mail order exchanges, anonymous groups like Zerox Dreamflesh could find place on Belgian compilations, while Chris and Cosey lullabied their son to sleep with Irena Xero and her interdisciplinary art collective Zip. Bonus selects ten survivors from the fertile period (1982-1989), most of which were only issued on cassette in tiny editions of five to one-hundred copies. M Squared affiliates Prod join the extraterrestrial Software Seduction, He Dark Ages minimal wave neglect and the irreverent cut ups of The Horse Hes Sick and MK Ultra & the Assassins of Light. The remaining tracks have been sourced from musicians private archives and are being officially released on Oz Waves for the first time - Andy Rantzens industrial dub Itch-E & Scratch-E precursor, the buoyant vocal-drone of Ironing Music, and Moral Fibro, Sydneys short lived answer to Weekend and Marine Girls. With detailed track-by-track notes, lines are drawn to Severed Heads, Scattered Order, and other antipodean post-punk royalty. As a DJ, Steele Bonus has gained notoriety via the exquisite selections that form his ongoing mix series Odd Waves. Sydney-born, Amsterdam-based, his graphic design has not only been responsible for sleeves on Efficient Space, but also trusted Amsterdam connoisseurs Music From Memory and Young Marcos Safe Trip.

Title: Sky Girl
Format: Double LP
Label: Efficient Space
Country: Australia
Price: $28.00
Re-pressed. "Sky Girl is a mysteriously unshakeable companion, a deeply melancholic and sentimental journey through folk-pop, new wave and art music micro presses that span 1961-1991. Its a DIY collection of different genres, from different countries across different decades, that are all bound by the same longing sentiment. A concept compilation! A seemingly disparate suite of selections of forgotten fables by more or less never-knowns, Sky Girl forms a beautifully coherent and utterly sublime whole deftly compiled by French collectors DJ Sundae and Julien Dechery. From Scott Seskinds adolescent musical road movie to Karen Marks icy Oz-wave, the charming DIY storytelling of Italian-American go-getter Joe Tossini and the ethereal slow dance themes of Parisian artists Nini Raviolette and Hugo Weris, Sky Girl resonates on a wide spectrum historically, geographically and stylistically. It unites in a singular, longing, almost intangible ambience. If the names sound wholly unfamiliar that doesnt matter, the nature of the compositions swiftly nurtures an intimacy with these lonely, poignant, openhearted wanderers. Most were available in a very limited capacity at the time of their release, some were never really released at all - Gary Davenport declined to release "Sarra" after he split with the girl for whom the track is named - years later a friend convinced Davenport to allow him to put 100 copies online to sell and DJ Sundae was quick enough to snare one. Beyond their scarcity, these tracks are bound together by a certain raw beauty thats achievable when music is made and no one is listening. Sky Girl comprises of fifteen officially licensed songs, a two year international scavenger hunt through long-folded home label operations, the depths of internet forums and traceless acetates. Both compilers are well trained record sleuths - DJ Sundaes labels Hollie and Idle Press have reissued Arthur Russell affiliate Nirosta Steel and DIY relic Pitch, while Julien Dechery previously compiled Fire Star, a retrospective on Tamil film composer Ilaiyaraaja, for Bombay Connection. Released by popular NTS show "Noise In My Head" offshoot Efficient Space, Sky Girl is enriched with artwork from Perks and Mini mutant Misha Hollenbach and appropriately elegant sleeve notes courtesy of Ivan Smagghe. Includes digital download. Also features: Linda Smith, Bruce Langhorne, The Seraphims, Some of My Best Friends Are Canadians, The Rising Storm, Warfield Spillers, Joyce Heath, Angel, Nora Guthrie and Once." - Efficient Space.

"Over the past few years Electric Voice Records has established itself as one of Canadas most forward-thinking and ambitious new labels, releasing a mountain of innovative pop music from an eccentric roster of international bands and artists. The labels grand vision is quite simply to archive the current state of affairs in the underground world of pop music. Although a bold mission, this new compilation makes huge strides towards that aim. Culled from a hopelessly jammed inbox of submissions and requests, these 18 tracks represent some of the finest jams to ever grace the Electric Voice catalogue and offer a cross section of both up and coming and established artists. The labels obsessive attention to quality means that every track is an absolute highlight. Includes tracks from ARIEL PINK & R.

Format: LP
Label: Electric Voice
Country: Canada
Price: $24.00
"On this deluxe compilation, Electric Voice Records offers another exploration of historical and contemporary underground music. Whereas last years collection focused on alternative approaches to electronic pop music, this new album mines a darker spectrum of genres, one that spans more than three decades of minimalist synth and industrial work. Here, new-generation artists like TROPIC OF CANCER and MARTIAL CANTEREL extend rather than revive the music of their influences. Electric Voice II marries these young artists with pioneers from the beginning days of this music-truly groundbreaking acts like IKE YARD Yard, the first American band to sign with Factory Records, and Throbbing Gristle / Psychic TVs enigmatic GENESIS BREYER P-ORRIDGE, now performing some of her most poignant material to date as THEE MAJESTY. Other featured artists include DAS DING and French group MARTIN DUPONT, who both offer cuts from their respective early-80s archives. There are also exclusive tracks by ADN CKRYSTALL, FRANK (JUST FRANK), VITA NOCTIS and NINE CIRCLES. Taken together, the seamless flow of these tracks, despite the span of generations, makes clear the continued relevance of these practices and pure electronic sounds. To celebrate this collection, acclaimed artist JUAN MENDEZ (Silent Servant) provides cover artwork, with additional design by DMYTRIJ WULFFIUS." - Electric Voice.

Format: CD

Country: Japan
Price: $21.00
“This compilation is a sweet snapshot of a sophisticated sector of young Japanese pop music circa 2014. Originally released as a series of web-only EPs on Dai Ogasawaras Ano(t)raks label, Light Wave features artists born in the 1990s who have been strongly influenced by the melodic, sophisticated Japanese "city pop" music of the 70s and 80s, as exemplified by such revered names as Tatsuro Yamashita, Yumi Arai, and Tin Pan Alley. These musicians also draw inspiration from the "shibuya style" pop of the 90s, including artists like Pizzicato Five and Cornelius. But whereas these earlier artists were living in boom times and recording in luxurious studios financed by major record companies, these young artists have been born into a glum economic era with a decimated recording industry. Nevertheless, through the magic of sheer willpower and surprisingly assured musical and self-production skills, they make joyous, lighthearted, and refreshingly refined pop music. With strong melodies and inspired arrangements, this fresh new wave of city pop is perfect summer music, all year round. Remastered to EM Records exacting standards, this collection showcases a promising generation of pure pop music in Japan. Includes 20-page booklet with liner notes by Ryohei Matsunaga, lyrics, artist bios, and English translations. Includes tracks by Hesonosuke, Miho Tsujibayashi, Shin Rizumu featuring Sodapop, rizumu & ikkubaru, and Sodapop (including a track featuring Yuriko Ohno).

Title: Highlights Of Vortex
Format: LP
Label: Etats-Unis
Country: USA
Price: $27.00
"The brainchild of visual artist Jordan Belson and electronics polymath Henry Jacobs, the Vortex Experiments ran from 1957 to 1960, first at San Franciscos Morrison Planetarium and later at the SF Museum of Art. The very name of these events announced their aim: a swirling totality of sensory experience. Around Belsons richly-colored visuals -- making use of the planetariums entire dome and featuring luminous, sharply geometric imagery projected through an array of devices -- Jacobs ringed a system of roughly 40 multidirectional loudspeakers, each of which could be precisely controlled to produce, in the words of one reviewer, a living theater of sound and light. A landmark recording in the history of electronic tape music and an engrossing artifact of proto-psychedelia, Highlights Of Vortex gathers recordings designed for the Vortex system by Jacobs and collaborators David Talcott, William Loughborough, and Gordon Longfellow. Source material including free improvisation, field recording, classical Indian instrumentation, West African polyrhythms and musique concrète is transmogrified through tape manipulation, atomizing swathes of reverb and delay, and other live and recorded effects, making dramatic use of the monumental Vortex soundsystem. An unprecedented marriage of image and sound, Vortex Experiments exercised immeasurable impact on the imagination and practice of countless experimental visual and sonic artists so this album is a must for fans of such visionaries as Stan Brakhage, Tony Conrad, and Jack Smith. Limited edition of 500 numbered copies on clear vinyl." - Etas-Unis.

Title: Killing Melody - Instrumental Music From Japanese Pinky Violence Movies
Format: LP
Label: Ethbo
Country: UK
Price: $27.00
"Subtitled: Instrumental Music From Japanese Pinky Violence Movies. The title Killing Melody is from the movie Criminal Woman: Killing Melody and sets the scene for a taste of Pinky Violence. Any filmgoer new to the genre should be warned: Pinky Violence movies are not for the prudish or faint hearted. With the irreverence of Luis Bunuel, the slapstick of a Carry On film, the frisson of Russ Meyer, all combined with callous violence. That said, they can be a whole lot of fun. They have more than a resemblance to Blaxploitation movies, yet these films were made before Cleopatra Jones, Coffy and the like. The music selected for this album is not limited to Pinky Violence films, but also the New Action gangster series and the erotic avant garde of Koji Wakamatsu. Very much products of their shameless and liberated times, expressed with a uniquely Japanese mania; essential viewing for anyone interested in early 70s Japanese culture. Featured on the record are cult gloom-folk-rock band THE JACKS. Instead of their signature suicidal folk, they are represented here with one of their earliest recordings, a fuzz rock discotheque hoe-down. Alongside them THE FLOWERS, one of the most renowned Japanese 60s rock acts, beat out a hippy jazz bossa version of their first hit Last Chance. Enka goes RnB, meat and potatoes drums, clavichords, rocking horn sections, driving drones, big reverb and beats to die for. Some of these sounds could easily have been made by Ramsay Lewis, Duke Ellington or Lalo Schifrin. Instead they were banged out by the tight studio bands and orchestras of the Toei, Toho and Nikkatsu film studios. Released on Ethbo Music, its first release for several years, the label being a product of the fevered mind of Howard Williams. Normally found holed away in the basement of Honest Jons record shop, where he runs the distribution for the Honest Jons label and a select group of imprints from around the world. Co-compiler of the Moondog - Viking Of Sixth Avenue compilation album for Honest Jons, he also co-ran Rita Records in the mid 1990s, which launched Smoke Citys international chart hit Underwater Love. This is a 1000 only limited edition vinyl run single LP with insert. Liner notes are written by Mark Schilling, author of No Borders No Limits: Nikkatsu Action Cinema. Mastered in at Dubplates and Mastering Berlin and pressed at Pallas." - Ethbo.

Title: Pomegranates
Format: Double LP
Label: Finders Keepers
Country: UK
Price: $28.00
"2016 repress; originally released in 2009.Pomegranates collects some of the finest Persian pop songs ever recorded. Many are acknowledged classics within Iran and throughout the Iranian Diaspora. Some are obscure. This collection is a trove, ripe for discovery and rediscovery, and worthy of inclusion in the canon of idiosyncratic musical gems from the global south. Most of contemporary Irans artistic and creative leanings, and its grapples with history and identity, are loosely and mystically conjoined and contested in memory. Iran is marked by the complex interplay of diverse constituencies, philosophies, and influences -- ethnic, religious, political, geopolitical, and historical. As in many other countries, the 60s and 70s were a time of tumult in Iran, bringing growth (via petrodollars) and freedom (under the banner of socioeconomic development) while exacerbating inequalities within the country. The music and voices that blossomed during those decades exemplify the turbulence and excitement of the age. It is worth recognizing these left-out and lost artists individually and as a group when considering the global happenings of 60s/70s psych, rock, and folk, while exploring their influence and relevance since. This collection endeavors to recontextualize these songs from the realm of reminiscence, nostalgia, and memory into a specific and accessible narrative to share and relate within the universal musical gamut. It is for aficionados, the curious, and collectors alike. The recordings excavated here are highly sexual musings, voluble love songs, simple folk tunes, and subtle works of political protest. Includes performances by Zia, Mohammad Nouri,Mehrpouya, Googoosh, Kourosh Yaghmaei,Parva, Nooshafarin, Soli, Marjan, Sima Bina,Ramesh, and Dariush." - Finders Keepers.

Title: Thai? Dai!: The Heavier Side of the Luk Thung Underground
Format: LP
Label: Finders Keepers
Country: UK
Price: $26.00
"2016 repress; originally released in 2011. Fourteen slabs of the heaviest Thai funk and psych rockers ever committed to vinyl. The styles featured on this compilation fall somewhere between luk thung ("song of the countryside") and luk krung ("song of the city"). Bangkok was a melting pot for the evolution of these two genres, the former alluding to musical themes and lyrics aimed at the wider national population and the latter looking westward with a more urban audience in mind. Thai? Dai! collects experiments by both little-known groups and established figures like Plearn Promdan. Even within Thailand the majority of these tunes remain unissued outside of this compilation, making this a truly essential glimpse into the strange underbelly of Thai luk thung in all its unique, original, and outlandish glory; a small snapshot of an otherwise forgotten era, gloriously remastered from the original sources and officially licensed from the original label, Sound of Siam Co. Ltd. Includes performances bySroeng Santi; Plearn Promdan; Rung Petchburi; Rung Fah Puping;Petch Burapa; Teungjai Bunpraruksa; Riem Daranoi; and Jalwal, Annie & Geerasak.” - Finders Keepers.

Title: The Dunedin Double
Format: Double LP
Label: Flying Nun & Captured Tracks
Country: USA
Price: $25.00
“The Dunedin Double was a seminal in both independent and New Zealand music. Released in March 1982, The Dunedin Double went on to kick start New Zealand’s biggest independent record label Flying Nun Records as well as the careers of, at the time, local, unknown kiwi bands The Chills, Verlaines, The Stones and Sneaky Feelings.

Recorded over two weekends in two separate damp flats in Christchurch, the EP launched the notion of the ‘Dunedin Sound,’ a phrase and sonic influence that still has a place in todays jangle-indie pop world. Unusual in it’s format, each side of the two 12’’s showcasing each bands first recordings, and take on the Dunedin Sound. The Dunedin Double has become one of the mantelpieces for lo-fi record collectors disappearing after one press. For Record Store Day 2014, Flying Nun in conjunction with Captured Tracks, will once more let The Dunedin Double briefly appear on the shelves, gloriously re-mastered.” - Captured Tracks.

Title: Smashed 40: Slummer Jams
Format: Double Cassette
Label: Folktale
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Its no secret that people judge you based on what kind of music you like and more than likely there is a band or performer who you like that you dont feel comfortable admitting without first giving a disclaimer like: "guilty pleasure". Music that too many people like isnt cool to listen to. We might be missing something but we fail to see the logic in that. Music should be something you enjoy, not something youre ashamed of. Furthermore, its undeniable that "main stream" music has influenced musicians of all styles in one form or another. So we decided to ask some of our favorite artists to record their take on the "main stream" and what we got was an epic collection of songs that are both eclectic and absurd. This compilation contains 40 artists doing their interpretations of Top 40 hits, clocking in at nearly two and a half hours in length. Released on two professionally dubbed and imprinted cassettes, housed in clear cassette albums with full color artwork by Brian Blomerth. Includes digital download card." - Folktale.

Price: $22.00
"Vähän multaa päälle (trans. "Put a Little Dirt On Top") is a compilation on vinyl featuring exclusive tracks from bands that reside in Tampere, Finland. It was commissioned by the art exhibition Tampere 5th Triennial as a part of their exhibition catalog. Fonal only has 250 copies for sale, so it will definitely be a sought-out collectors item! The amazingly detailed LP covers are done by a fine artist from Tampere, Seela Dahlman. The LP features five artists. Motelli Skronkle is a legendary band that released three albums in the 90s and was founded by theater actors Hannu Raatikainen, Esko Varonen and the late Markku Peltola, who also acted in the Aki Kaurismäki movie The Man Without The Past. Veli-Petteri Rajanti had joined the band already before the first release in 1987. On this compilation, we hear the first new material from the band in over 10 years. Pekko Käppi is a well-known neo-folk artist in Finland and released his latest album Vuonna 86 in 2010. Ville Leinonen has released a multitude of albums, and three are on the Fonal Records catalog. On this compilation, we hear a more ambient and experimental track. Death Hawks is a bluesy, noisy rock group that put out their debut album in Finland. Theyve gone the way of Sun City Girls on this compilation with a three-part psychedelic trip. Tuusanuuskat, who released their debut album in 2011 on Fonal has made their most danceable track to date, a 9-minute dancefloor tune with experimental flavors added." -Fonal.

"Non-hippie, devastating guitar-psych and PCP induced hard-rock: Angel Dust Psychedelia is a 100% killers, no fillers compilation featuring obscure and unknown 45s and unreleased acetates from the US, most of them released on private labels. Many local underground bands of the late 1960s and early 1970s lacked the money and/or material needed to make a full-length album, and would put out a self-released 45s instead. Record collectors and writers have been slow to understand this treasure of vintage private press singles, with music that is every bit as good as hallowed underground LPs like Mystic Siva or Boa. Fourteen tracks including the monster acid-punker Time Gone to Waste by Local Traffic, post-Stereo Shoestring band Red House with an unreleased track, the mega rare acetate by Matchbox from Houston, tremendous acid-psych by Dick St John and Ragweed Patch, raw hard-rock by Masque and Zoo and more. The perfect companion to those legendary 80s psych comps like Brain Shadows, Acid Dreams, and Endless Journey. Remastered sound for a stunning in-your-face heavy guitar experience.

Title: Text-Sound Compositions - A Stockholm Festival
Format: 5 CD Box Set
Label: Fylkingen
Country: Sweden
Price: $60.00
"Fylkingen Records in collaboration with the Swedish Radio released a series of LP records with text-sound compositions between the years of 1968-77. All of these were documentations of the international festival Text-Sound Compositions A Stockholm Festival, which Fylkingen presented in Stockholm several times during these years. Most of the LPs were only pressed in batches of about 400-500 records, and most of the LPs sold out during the festivals. A re-release had long been planned, and this 5 CD box marks the complete re-release of the complete recordings. Apart from the 5 CDs with in all ca 6 hours of material, the CD box contains a 60 page booklet with essays by Teddy Hultberg and Sten Hanson, as well as historical photographs taken by Lütfi �?zkök during the festivals. The term text-sound composition was coined in 1967 in Sweden by the composers/writers Lars-Gunnar Bodin and Bengt Emil Johnsson, and was meant to serve to name a genre that was a vital art form in the no mans land between sound, poetry, and music. Text-sound compositions had influences from previous modernistic waves such as futurism, Dadaism, Lettrism, etc., but perhaps the most important influence was the Swedish poet and visual artist �?yvind Fahlström, who had just over a decade earlier coined the term concrete poetry. The term concrete poetry related to Pierre Schaeffers concrete music, and it is somewhere between concrete poetry and concrete music that text-sound compositions appear. The birth of the electronic music studio and concrete musics idea that every sound can be freed from its original context and given a new meaning when it is reworked and put together with other sounds in the electronic music studio became the catharsis for text-sound composition. In the electronic music studio, voice and language sounds can be broken down, unleashed, and then fused together to become a poetry that had never been heard before. Certain text-sound composers would come to work only with pure lingual sounds, but most eventually came to integrate lingual sounds with other sounds, both concrete and electronic. The CD box contains works by the following text-sound composers and sound poets: Charles Amirkhanian, Lars-Gunnar Bodin, Svante Bodin, Henri Chopin, Bob Cobbing, François Dufrêne, Gust Gils, Jarl och Sonja Hammarberg-�?kesson, Sten Hanson, Bernard Heidsieck, C. Christer Hennix, �?ke Hodell, Bengt Emil Johnsson, Sandro Key-�?berg, Bengt af Klintberg, Ilmar Laaban, Annea Lockwood & Harvey Matusow, Arrigo Lora-Totino, Ghérasim Luca, Arne Mellnäs, Franz Mon, Ladislav Novák, Diter Rot & Emmet Williams, Erik Thygesen, Paul de Vree."

Country: Germany
Price: $36.00
"With almost universal access to the internet and the rise of the online archive it may appear that the entire history of recorded sound is only a few mouse clicks away. However, the 2008 discovery in a Paris archive of a phonautograph recording of Au Clair de Lune from 1860 demonstrated that fragile treasures remain to be discovered by the dedicated explorer. Musician, composer and radio producer Felix Kubin has spent the last 5 years investigating, tracking down and collecting a stunning selection of hitherto neglected recordings from archives and private collections. With an eye for the antique curiosity, and an ear for the curious dusty beauty of abandoned transmissions from the past, he is now proud to present this first collection of historical recordings. The recordings presented here offer many and diverse pleasures from the analogue realm. Amongst the jewels offered are chronicles of eccentric machines, alleged occult occurrences on telephone exchanges, drunken whalers, marine plankton, music hall entertainers, Nazi attempts to play proto-synthesizers, uncategorizable oddities, and lost documents by originators of the avant-garde. This deluxe vinyl only edition is presented in lavish packaging including a booklet which contains an essay by Felix Kubin, extensive notes on each track and illustrations." -Gagarin

Format: 7" Flexi-Disc
Label: Goaty Tapes
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"In an effort to transcend the stale tradition of location- and genre-based compilations, here is a Flexi Disc collection of one-minute instrumentals inspired by famous Modern sculptural busts. The pairings here are hilariously appropriate:
Control Unit (Italy) blast open Jean-Pierre Dantans bust Victor Hugo. Hugo being, of course, the great Romantic noise band of the 1830s notable for works of industrial disaffection.
Sea Urchin (Germany) evoke Amadeo Modiglianis Primitivist La Saggezza with a wobbly dub-inflected burner. Modigliani, an important champion of early Dancehall.
Half High (Australia) project dark ambient Surrealism on Elie Nadelmans Head With Bowler Hat.
Soviet Pop (China) play minimal electronics against a sharp, plaster study by Constantin Brancusi.
Primitive Motion (Australia) yoke Jean Arps Bird Mancaricature with a playful Casio doodle.
The Disc is bound into a booklet with reproductions of said sculptures. Includes a DOWNLOAD code.
NOTE: This compilation comes in three binding colors: blue, white, and black." - Goaty Tapes.

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

The works, many of which were composed specifically for this project, range in shape and tone from Romantic to Pop to Cinematic and Sculptural/Body based. What they have in common is perhaps the idea that sound-art, with its lack of visual stimuli, connects us to an earlier time, both personally and collectively, when the body intuitively acted as artist, muse and medium.

Although Hex is a relative small clubnight it has built a name for itself around the world among fans of obscure new wave music and many bands and specialized labels. To celebrate the existence of Hex there is now a compilation LP... so everybody can have a Hex night at home... On the LP are twelve bands that all performed live on stage at Hex. Ten out of the twelve tracks are exclusive recorded for this LP (and the other two are absolute hits on the Hex dancefloor). What you get is what we do... it is all there... from apocalyptic disco to post-punk, from elektro to Neo Deutsche Welle and from minimal electronics to cabaret ...

Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Christian rock/psych/garage ranging from album tracks by well known groups like Agape, Search Party and All Saved Freak Band to singles by more obscure groups such as Concrete Rubber Band and Stonewood Cross; extremely high level of musical quality throughout, with varying degrees of fuzzed up guitar solos on all tracks; theres a message there for those who need it—but otherwise this is just great listening; fantastic Psychedelic Moses cover art. Ken Scott review from his excellent spiral-bound Archivist (Vintage Vinyl Jesus Music, 1965-1980): “All the songs on this album were specifically chosen for their guitar content… some of it mellow and subtle, and some of it mind frying heavy fuzz”. For the budget-minded heres you chance to sample tracks from rare pricey albums by Concrete Rubber Band and The Search Party, plus Agape, Exkursions, The Bridge, All Saved Freak Band, and Way International outfits Selah and Pressed Down Shaken Together & Rolling Over. And if youve already got all those theres a 1967 pre-Agape song (In The Light) and the six-minute stunner Magic Man from the elusive Stonewood Cross single (man, if those guys had only cut an album – yeow!). Neat b&w cover art with Fillmore-styled psych lettering.” -Hidden Visions.

This set includes: Jun Miyake, The Gerogerigegege, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Phew, Fushitsusha, Deme Semi Quaver, Ghost, Idiot OClock, Takako Minekawa and E*Trance." -Hiruko.

Title: Bellyachers, Listen: Songs From East Africa, 1938-46
Format: Double LP
Label: Honest Jons
Country: UK
Price: $21.00
"This is part 1 of a 2LP set of vinyl versions of Honest Jons Something Is Wrong: Vintage Recordings From East Africa CD compilation -- selections from an HMV run of more than 400 78s -- recordings made in Uganda and Kenya from the mid‐1930s to the mid‐1950s. Part 1 encompasses this material circa 1938-1946, entitled Bellyachers, Listen: Songs From East Africa, 1938-46. Three main types of performance are featured (not forgetting a lovely early Kenyan big‐band calypso, as if straight from the pen of Lord Kitchener). Most are minstrelsy, with songs ranging dazzlingly through subjects including loneliness and death, bastards and cut‐off trousers, trains of fire and no‐good rich people, a murder mystery and a drunken punch‐up at a rumba party in Kampala, and metaphorical cocks, hard pedalling and kettles which wont boil. Other minstrels accompany themselves on various sorts of lyre, and guitars carrying the influences of U.S. country music and Congolese 78s, the influx of Congolese musicians, and the harmonies of Christian church music. There are also tough, raw contributions on button‐accordion and taarab music from the Swahili‐speaking communities of the east coast, and Arab and Indian communities in ports like Mombasa, which had imported Egyptian and Indian music since almost the start of the century. Lilting melodies are provided by violins or Indian harmoniums, sometimes also an oud, along with Indian or Arab percussion. Luxuriously presented, in a gatefold sleeve, with full notes, including extensive translation and haunting photographs. Recordings brilliantly restored at Abbey Road." -Honest Jons

Title: Never the Same: Leave-Taking from the British Folk Revival 1970-1977
Format: Double LP
Label: Honest Jons
Country: UK
Price: $25.00
"Never The Same celebrates the lost years of British folk: the 1970s. As far as mass popularity goes, the folk scene most definitely peaked in the 1960s -- with Bert Jansch, Anne Briggs, Martin Carthy, Davy Graham and all. By the end of the sixties, according to conventional wisdom, it had morphed into folk rock (Fairport Convention and Steeleye Span) or singer-songwriters (Nick Drake and John Martyn), prior to disappearing into a netherworld of beards and real ale. But what the pop histories dont tell you is that the seventies were the real golden years for British folk music. The scene had gone underground, disappeared into the now totally unfashionable world of the folk clubs But the musicians whod come up in the heady years of the sixties hadnt gone away: they were just getting better and better. The trouble was the major record labels werent interested, not even the more folk-friendly indies like Island and Transatlantic. There was one exception, a man called Bill Leader. Leader was the man who had been behind the mixing desk on almost every major British folk record of the sixties, from Anne Briggs first EP to Davy Grahams Anji to Bert Janschs bedroom debut. In 1969, seeing a yawning gap in the market, he finally started his own label. Some of the names he signed up were already familiar on the folk scene -- like Lal and Mike Waterson from the legendary singing family The Watersons. Most, however, were new names, emerging stars from the folk club scene. There was Dick Gaughan, a shy Scotsman who had to be talked into making records; and Nic Jones from Essex, who was close to giving up the unequal struggle to make a living from music when Leader signed him up. Over the next ten years Leader put out a series of albums of a standard unmatched by any other major folk label. Not all of it was straight traditional folk. Leader was always open to experimentation and released albums as varied as the psych folk of Dave and Toni Arthur, the singer-songwriting of Rosie Hardman, and the elaborate arrangements of John Tams Muckram Wakes. He also released the peerless song suite Bright Phoebus by Lal & Mike Waterson, and two of the songs here represent this lost classic. But at the heart of the labels output were very simple virtues: great singers and great instrumentalists playing and singing the traditional music of Britain. So here, for the first time, is a compilation of the lost wonders of the Leader label, repository of the hidden history of British folk music." Artists: Lal Waterson, Nic Jones, Dorothy Elliott, Alistair Anderson, Dick Gaughan, Dave Burland, Aly Bain, The Boys of the Lough, Tony Rose." CD also available.

"Deluxe 4LP version in cardboard slip case with individual sleeves for each LP. Unbelievable packaging! This is the fourth release in Honest Jons series of albums exploring the earliest 78s held in the EMI Hayes Archive. Open Strings is a dazzling selection of virtuoso string-playing from Egypt, Iran, Iraq and Turkey, all recorded in the 1920s, and pretty much unheard ever since. In addition, Open Strings includes a disc of newly-commissioned responses to the themes in this music by underground luminaries committed to the drone such as Sir Richard Bishop of legendary Sun City Girls renown, West Coast psych-guitarist Ben Chasny aka Six Organs Of Admittance, UK folk-guitarist Rick Tomlinson aka Voice Of The Seven Woods, and Western Massachusetts raga-inspired duo, MV And EE. From resonant bow-drone, to frenetic fret-runs to delicate, circular acoustic musings to sitar fever-dreams, no matter the nationality, there is a resonance and truth in this music that is ancient, timeless and transcendent. Scorchers past and present, every one. Other artists include: Micah Blue Smaldone, Michael Flower, Charlie Parr, Bruce Licher, Paul Metzger, and Steffen Basho-Junghans." - Forced Exposure

Part 2 encompasses this material circa 1952-1957. Three main types of performance are featured (not forgetting a lovely early Kenyan big‐band calypso, as if straight from the pen of Lord Kitchener).

Finally, there is the startling sound of four larger Ugandan ensembles, with songs about getting drunk and the relative merits of prostitution and motherhood, and the kings deportation by the British, deploying "the man who crunches rocks between his teeth." The style dismayed the missionary Robert Ashe, who visited the court of the Kabaka in 1884: "Our ears were deafened with the din which a motley band of musicians were making. Kettledrums and hand drums were rolling, horns braying, flutes screaming ... while blind musicians twanged away on their banjos, the whole making a most discordant harmony."

"Thirty‐five precious, stinging selections from an HMV run of more than 400 78s -- recordings made in Uganda and Kenya from the mid‐1930s to the mid‐1950s. Three main types of performance are featured (not forgetting a lovely early Kenyan big‐band calypso, as if straight from the pen of Lord Kitchener). Most are minstrelsy, with songs ranging dazzlingly through subjects including loneliness and death, bastards and cut‐off trousers, trains of fire and no‐good rich people, a murder mystery and a drunken punch‐up at a rumba party in Kampala, and metaphorical cocks, hard pedalling and kettles which wont boil. Set to the deep grooving of an ndingidi one‐string fiddle, the very opening verses exemplify this fluency and range, within an account of the coming of the radio to the Ugandan capital. Some were angry and confused -- they could hear the talking but see no one, and would not believe that the voice came only from the loudspeakers. The singer SSekinomu weaves in asides about female creativity and the imprisonment of Prince Mawanda, the kings eldest brother, before the song ends as it began, with thanks and compliments for the new technology, to the Bazungu, the Whites. Other minstrels accompany themselves on various sorts of lyre, and guitars carrying the influences of U.S. country music and Congolese 78s, the influx of Congolese musicians, and the harmonies of Christian church music. There are also tough, raw contributions on button‐accordion: "Listening to this kind of Kikuyu song is more a feat of endurance than an aesthetic pleasure," noted the musicologist Hugh Tracey at the time. There is taarab music from the Swahili‐speaking communities of the east coast, and Arab and Indian communities in ports like Mombasa, which had imported Egyptian and Indian music since almost the start of the century.

Country: UK
Price: $21.00
"This is the third in Honest Jons series of albums exploring the earliest 78s held in the EMI Hayes Archive. Honest Jons has spent the last two years delving through more than 150,000 78 records in the temperature-controlled steel vaults of EMIs Archive in Hayes, Middlesex. Following studious compilations of West African and Iraqi music of the 1920s, the latest release in the Honest Jons Hayes Archive series is a sparkling late-summer lucky dip, Sprigs Of Time: 78s From The EMI Archive. An eccentric survey of the Hayes shelves, Sprigs Of Time is thirty tracks recorded between 1903 and 1957, everywhere from England (Percy Graingers recording of the title song, sung by Joseph Taylor in 1908) to Japan (the bewilderingly beautiful "Seigaiha," by the Japanese Imperial Palace Band, five years earlier). Organ rolls from Georgia run alongside Tamils impersonating motorized transport, and rumba from Beirut; 40s fado sits next to the songs of Bengali beggars. As with the other Hayes releases, the tracks have been restored at Abbey Road and are beautifully presented, with extensive contemporary photographs included. There are recognizable names (Joseph Taylor, the incomparable Fairuz, Mighty Sparrow and an uncredited Rubén González, singing lead vocals on "Rumba Negra") and extraordinary oddities (Vengopal Charis rather unfunny "Laughing" and the peculiarly affecting hand bells of "Gas All Clear"). Taken out of the library and put back on the turntable, every track here is remarkable; every one worth the saving." - Honest Jons.

Format: LP
Label: Honest Jons
Country: UK
Price: $25.00
“Stunningly beautiful, poignant music from Bilād al-Shām -- "the countries of Damascus," known nowadays as Syria, Lebanon, and Palestine -- including performances from the very first recording sessions in the region. The legendary, moody Beirut singer Būlus Ṣulbān is here -- some historians have him singing before Egypts Pasha Ibrāhīm Bāshā during his military campaign in Syria, in 1841 -- and Ḥasība Moshēh, Jewish "nightingale of the Damascene gardens." Thurayyā Qaddūra from Jerusalem; Yūsuf Tāj, a folk singer from Mount Lebanon; Farjallāh Bayḍā, cousin to the founders of Baidaphon Records... Musical directors like the lutist Qāsim Abū Jamīl al-Durzī and the violinist Anṭūn al-Shawwā (followed by his son Sāmī); such virtuosi as the qanun-players Nakhleh Ilyās al-Maṭarjī and Yaqūb Ghazāla, and lutist Salīm Awaḍ. Even at the time, notwithstanding such brilliance, public music-making was frowned upon as morally demeaning, especially for women. Musical venues were generally dodgy. Ṣulbān once cut short a wedding performance for the Beiruti posh, after just one song, he was so disgusted with the attitude of his audience. "If I had to tell you about the catcalls," one commentator wrote about musical theater in Beirut, "the stomping of feet, the sound of sticks hitting the ground, the noise of the water-pipes, the teeth cracking watermelon seeds and pistachio nuts, the screams of the waiters, and the clinking of arak glasses on the tables, I would need to go on and on and on..." Also includes tracks by Aḥmad al-Shaykh, Naīm Semān, Ḥikmat Ḥajjār, Bāsīl Ḥajjār, Muḥyiddīn Bayūn, Muḥammad al-Āshiq, Aḥmad al-Mīr, Iliās Shahwān, and Yūsuf al-Naḥḥāl.” - Honest Jons.

Title: To Scratch Your Heart: Early Recordings From Istanbul
Format: 4LP Boxset
Label: Honest Jons
Country: UK
Price: $54.00
"Luxuriously packaged deluxe 4LP version in cardboard slip case with individual sleeves for each LP. Honest Jons presents a package drawn from recordings made in Istanbul by the Gramophone Company and HMV, during the first three decades of the 20th century. Amidst the ruins of the Ottoman Empire, it crosses and mixes the folk and classical heritage of Turks, Greeks, Armenians and Gypsies, Muslims, Christians and Jews, urbanites and country‐people, and the demands of tradition and modernity, musical improvisation, composition and system. Most of the singers are hafız, versed in a musical reading of the Koran, and renowned for mastery of the exalted, improvisatory form of the gazel. There are several magnificent examples here, by legendary artists. Three of these gazelhans beautifully interpret folk songs, and another contributor, the folklorist Ağyazar Efendi, sings a long Armenian air with utter authenticity, but in the style of a gazel. Exemplifying the new political freedoms of the Republic, there are two heart‐melting female vocal performances of a kind of art‐song called sarkı. Also featured is the taksim, a kind of improvisation in which one‐off musical fireworks, designed to ravish the listeners soul, illuminate deep fluency in the makam. A whos-who of the pre‐eminent instrumentalists of this first half-century of Turkish recording, in performances which are simply stunning, breathtaking, exquisite and other‐worldly. The music here is so transfixing, intensely devotional and sublimely beautiful, that some contemporary listeners thought they were levitating. " -Honest Jons

You get two tracks from norwegian duo RYFYLKE (Humbug releases an LP with them sometime in 2005!), bristling with heavy frequencies. A sample of up-close "selbstverprügelung" and subtle barnyard heckling from unidentified mental patients RAIONBASHI. Crude electronics from WAWA. A glacial and feverish meditation for metals, springs, radio and wire hangers by ORANGE, MANIFOLD. SINISTRI are sculptors of molten pulses and charged convulsions, look out for their album on the Häpna label in the spring. Theres two tracks from PH�? - a short blast taken from "This is Handiwork" CD + a live track from Rhiz in Wien where the boys are fronted by one Didi Bruckmayr in best maniacal form. Also from Italy (along with Sinistri) are OvO, hot on the heels of their fully cracked jamz of the live tape on Imvated. This trackss for guitar and whistles, Stefania and Bruno captured here in full stereo sound. WOODEN WAND & SATYA SAI BABA exhales and hits a strident rock chord, trances out, lays it bare. "Wet Margarete" by EXCEPTER is a keening call to hush things down, before the gorgeous slow movements of LUNTs "You Keep Me Unafraid", a daydreaming haze of crystalline guitar loops. MASKINANLEGG tests your stereo output, while MOTHs "Ohne Titel" (the final Moth recording), draws to a fried conclusion with subliminal hum and skeletal buzzes. ANDERS HANAs piece is quiet and poised, barely pinches the skin. VIOLETS ROCK N ROLL suggests in the crudest of terms you better get the hell out of here, and finally IDEA FIRE COMPANY offers a salute to the weary listener with the epic 11-minute "Heroes".Comes in a heavy full colour cardboard packaging, stupefying "pensjonist" themed artwork, an insert and a sticker.

Balazs Horvath (1942 ? 2006): Gritty Street - for the 65th anniversary of Z. Jeney; Further Series. Daniel Dinyes: Ouverture, Air, Double. Marton Kerekfy: Rhapsody. Performed by Beáta Móri, cimbalom, Krisztina Dobner, flute, Zsolt Bartek, clarinet. "It was the 20th century when the international fame and recognition of the cimbalom started to grow exponentially. Today, a wide choice awaits musicians ranging from being an independent soloist of a concerto to playing in the most varied chamber ensembles. The relationship between composers and musicians works ideally; new compositions are played by outstanding experts and, in turn, cimbalom players abound in new pieces. What is more, as it is also demonstrated by our present recording, it is still possible to say something new through the cimbalom. Here, eleven pieces composed by six young composers will have been heard in the rendition of Beáta Móri, who -- despite her youth -- can already take pride in having several dedications." - Hungaroton.

"The Messthetics #100-series launches its grand tour of the U.K. with two full CDs of London-area D.I.Y. - from some of the most famous, most obscure, and most idiosyncratic members of an extraordinary scene. Between 1977 and 83 hundreds of U.K. bands put out their own records and tapes - usually on the cheap and utterly without apology. With D.I.Y., punk and everything that came before it collided gloriously with D.I.Y.s fresh aesthetic of making and sharing recordings outside of the established music business - with only the slightest regard for an audience. Theres no common style: instead these songs are united by wit, enthusiasm, musical risk-taking (especially these London bands) ...and a conspicuous lack of pose. Rare tracks from the Scissor Fits, the Rich & Famous, Exhibit A, Different Is, Acid Drops, Grinder, Take It, the Jimmy Nipper 5, Funboy Five, Twelve Cubic Feet, Tiny Town, Existence, Collective Horizontal, Karel Fialka, and The Door and the Window.

Title: Rocky Mountain Low - The Colorado Musical Underground Of The Late 70s
Format: Double LP
Label: Hypercynical
Country: USA
Price: $26.00
"Rocky Mountain Low is a unique portrayal of a late-1970s American Punk/New Wave scene. It is the first time that a Punk/New Wave scene, from its inception in 1976 through to the end of 1979, has been documented in its entirety. In their presentation of Colorados musical reaction to the initial wake of Punk Rock in the late 1970s, the compilers have set the bar unattainably high for future would-be historians. Until now, very little has been known about what transpired in Colorados musical underground in the late 1970s. Did you know that Wax Trax, who later became world famous for their record label in the 1980s, started as a store in Denver in 1975? Their early story is told here. Or that JELLO BIAFRA of DEAD KENNEDYS fame is a Boulder native? Contained in this compilation you will find the origins of the Dead Kennedys name (see RADIO PETE bio) as well as some of Jellos pre-Dead Kennedys recordings, available for the first time ever (including a bonus, vinyl only recording of the improvised, very crude original "California Uber Alles"). Deluxe, double LP package which includes a bonus CD of the recordings, as well as a 24-page booklet containing extensive historical liner notes, dozens of photos, and complete biographies for 19 bands, 17 of which are represented with recordings: RAVERS , FRONT, RADIO PETE, JONNY III, IMMORTAL NIGHTFLAMES, JOEY VAIN & SCISSORS, DANCING ASSHOLES, DIRTY DOGS, CORVAIRS, LILLY ROSE & THE THORNS, DEFEX, HEALERS, INSTANTS, PROFALACTICS, GUYS, CELLS, AND TRANSISTORS. 32 songs/84 minutes of music. All material is previously unreleased with the exception of the Dirty Dogs track which was taken from their 45, self-released in 1978. "Rocky Mountain Low is an insanely great insiders view of the Colorado underground scene of the late 70s. Wed never even heard of half the bands here, but JOSEPH POPE was an active participant, and along with DALTON RASMUSSEN he pulled together a great set of unreleased nuggets from demos, rehearsal tapes & whatnot. Like lotsa scenes in their early days, the sounds here are heterogenous-60s style Pop, hard Garage, weird experimentalism and Brit-damaged lunge are all part of the mix, just as they were in the day. The book included is a great blend of history, attitude, crappy-looking fliers and the best picture of Jello Biafra you will ever see in this lifetime. Every town deserves this kind of deep investigation. Superb shit." -BYRON COLEY & THURSTON MOORE (Bull Tongue).

Title: New Songs of the Humpback Whale
Format: CD
Label: Important
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"New Songs of the Humpback Whale is a comprehensive investigation into the form and meaning of whale song with graphic visualizations from infographic designer Michael Deal. Liner notes and song selection by artist, scientist, author, and philosopher David Rothenberg. What album was so important that ten million copies of it needed to be pressed at once? Songs of the Humpback Whale, which National Geographic included with every copy of its January 1979 issue, distributed in 25 languages. No human pop star has ever received such magnanimous treatment, so what is it that is so special about the song of the humpback whale? Well, for one, humans knew nothing of this fabulous sound until the US Navy released its classified recordings at the end of the 1960s, at the very moment the world was most poised to listen to the unknown, the psychedelic, and the trippiest of sounds. Humpback whale song fit the bill perfectly. From high wails to deep growls to rhythmic scratches to tearful moans, it encompasses the full range of emotions in the longest song performed by any animal, a tune that can go on for nearly 24 hours at a time. The stereotypical long moan of whale song is only one note in a complex composition, with distinct phrases, repetition, structure, organization, shape, and form akin to many kinds of human music. This is no random outburst of cries and whispers, but a song with power, verve, identity, and design. New Songs of the Humpback Whale aims to gather the best recordings since 1990 by scientists and whale-listeners the globe over, offering a chance to assess what has happened to whale song since 1979. Infographic designer Michael Deal has designed colorful glyphs based on sonograms familiar to sound scientists, making the structure of this grand underwater music easier to understand than ever before. Though humpback whale song did not evolve for humans to appreciate, it may be no accident that humans do. Upon hearing the great song for the first time, whale scientist Roger Payne said he heard the size of the ocean, "as if I had walked into a dark cave to hear wave after wave of echoes cascading back from the darkness beyond ... Thats what whales do, give the ocean its voice." Includes recordings by made by Salvatore Cerchio near Madagascar in 1990, Olivier Adam near Madagascar in 2007, Glenn Edney near Tonga in 2008, and David Rothenberg near Maui in 2007 and 2010." - Important.

Title: New Music for Old Instruments
Format: CD
Label: Incunabulum
Country: Netherlands
Price: $16.00
"Curated by Dutch composer/lutenist Jozef van Wissem, the New Music for Old Instruments festival took place all over the world: in Brussels, New York, Paris, Utrecht, Antwerp, and other cities. The idea was to rid traditional instruments of their clichés. When one thinks of a lute, for example, the Robin Hood image comes to mind of the player standing under a balcony serenading a lady and getting a flower pot thrown at him. In order to update the instrument, to make it mature and give it the recognition it deserves, one needs to put it in an entirely different and contemporary context -- denouncing audience expectations, for example, such as not playing the instrument in a classical manner, or by playing the instrument for over a minute in concert, making the audience the performer, albeit uneasy and claustrophobic. What else can be done? Early instruments can be processed on a laptop in many different ways, field recordings can be added, lute tablature can be performed backwards, baroque themes can be repeated without end -- the freeing up of these constraints seems endless. The idea is to drag the instrument out of the museum, out of the safe hands of a small group of specialists, and give it back to the people. The lute, of course, is only an example. There are other instruments like this which suffer from cliché: pedal steel, harpsichord, steel guitar, you name it. New Music for Old Instruments intends to liberate these instruments by updating them in non-conventional ways. Artists include: Heresy of the Free Spirit with Keiji Haino, Jon Mueller/Robbie Lee/Jozef van Wissem, Paul Metzger, Gregg Kowalsky, Susan Alcorn, Cameron Deas, C Spencer Yeh, Cian Nugent, Sharron Kraus, Stephan Matthieu, R. Keenan Lawler, and Urpf Lanze." - Incunabulum.

Title: The Conet Project: Recordings of Short-Wave Numbers Stations
Format: 4CD Box Set
Label: Irdial
Country: UK
Price: $58.00
Repress now available of this all-time cult classic shortwave radio transmission CD. "Numbers stations are found all over the shortwave spectrum. They emit unusual transmissions of synthesized voices reading sets of phonetic letters and or numbers. The origin of these stations is in dispute. Their purpose is unclear. There are many dozens of different signal types on the air, each run by different organizations. Some of these organizations should have been closed down after the end of the cold war, yet they continue to transmit like clockwork. No one has ever compiled a set of numbers stations recordings for sale to the public. Until now. The Conet Project: a quadruple CD of 150 recordings covering 25 years of numbers station activity, with detailed logs, essays, and a definitive lookup table of all known numbers stations, including morse numbers stations. An invaluable and fascinating resource for all listeners, this is the definitive reference work on the mysterious field of numbers stations, containing very rare recordings from as early as 1971 and up to date examples of currently operating stations. The quadruple CD comes with an 80 page perfect bound booklet in two jewel cases, with a post card." - Irdial. Very highly recommended!!

Title: The Conet Project: Recordings of Shortwave Numbers Stations
Format: 5 CD
Label: Irdial
Country: UK
Price: $75.00
"Irdial announces the release of The Conet Project: Recordings of Shortwave Numbers Stations, TCP/1111": Special 5CD Edition. This will be a limited edition shrink-wrapped package containing: 1. The original 4 Conet Project CDs in their own quadruple jewel case. 2. Three black-and-white postcards. 3. One full-color postcard. 4. The extended 80-page booklet in its own jewel-case. 5. The new 5th CD in its own jewel case with its own new full-color booklet. The Conet Project is one of the most influential and important collections of recordings ever released to the public. Its original release in 1997 was unprecedented and completely unexpected. No one had heard of "Numbers Stations" before The Conet Project, and its release baffled everyone who heard it. But it struck a chord. The unique sonic qualities and astonishing variety of The Conet Projects recordings, combined with the clandestine origin of Numbers Stations and the meticulous research in the accompanying booklet combined to form a release that resonated strongly with people from a wide variety of backgrounds. Now 15 years later, Irdial-Discs is re-releasing this ground-breaking and legendary work in a new updated edition, featuring a fifth disc containing a set of 26 carefully selected examples of Shortwave "Noise Stations" sourced from the private tape archive of Akin Fernandez, the Conet Projects creator. If shortwave radio transmissions were nested like a Matroska, the outermost doll would comprise the ordinary government-licensed broadcasts that transmit propaganda and music. Next down would be the licensed Hams and Utility Stations used by shipping, weather and hobbyists. Then come the Numbers Stations; the unlicensed and unacknowledged communications from government agencies to spies in the field. Innermost of all of these are the completely abstract "Noise Stations" that have no point of human reference, other than that they can be heard. These Noise Stations sometimes consist of irregular and rare data-modes, and as such can be put into a context, but in other instances, Noise Stations have no plausible explanation at all. Some are clearly being transmitted because there is a carrier wave and are not natural Earth or space noises, but the content of the signal is without any obvious utility. For example, we present a recording that consists only of a loosely rhythmic "clacking" sound, that is similar to a man playing claves. When live on air, this broadcast went on for hours without interruption, only to suddenly cease without any discernible message of any kind. Another example is track No. 2, for which we have no explanation. It was only heard once, went on without interruption for at least three days, and then disappeared. It appears to be a highly complex encrypted data mode of some kind, but is unlike any sound normally associated with data modes. A true mystery. As is the case with Numbers Stations, it is very unlikely that some of the more odd Noise Station examples on Disc Five of The Conet Project will ever have a good explanation provided to the public. This is to be expected. After 15 years, the Numbers Station mystery has barely unraveled, save for some isolated glimpses into the mechanics of their operation. Irdial is privileged to be able to present one such rare and extraordinary revelation with "TCP/1111" which can be seen in the booklet of Disc Five. Irdial has obtained photographs of an actual Numbers Station voice machine, as was used in many of the former Communist Block countries. This event is without precedent. Somehow, a German man managed to buy a set of these voice generators, and Irdial has obtained photographs from him of the outside and inside of one of these machines. This machines function is to play sampled voices under the control of a 7-bit ASCII punched paper tape. It is made of widely-available commodity electronic components, and the manufacturers name does not appear on the casing; only two serial numbers "3 2620" and "Nr.8515" and a handwritten "X1.85" appear on the back of an access panel, with English lettering indicating the rear connector functions. The emergence of this machine raises many questions. Who designed and manufactured it? Who sold it? Why were these machines not destroyed after the decommissioning of the stations? And of course, this is only a tiny fraction of the larger picture. Numbers Stations and Noise Stations are a problem and a phenomenon that is ongoing, and that will continue to perplex and fascinate listeners and the curious for decades to come." -Irdial.

Title: Spiritual Jazz 2: Europe
Format: Double LP
Label: Jazzman
Country: UK
Price: $25.00
"Deluxe gatefold double LP version with color inserts and on 180 gram vinyl. As the 60s progressed, cultural and political revolutions occurred both in the U.S. and in Europe. Jazz was both a victim and a savior, with radical developments in the music occurring on both continents. In the U.S., artists took control of their own musical destiny as small labels broke away from the mainstream, expressing new and creative visions of freedom and peace against a backdrop of civil unrest, repression and war. In 60s Europe, the jazz community forged ahead with a different revolution; that of breaking away from mere emulation of their American counterparts. A distinctive, European jazz sound began to develop that combined traditional music from across Europe and around the world with the creative freedom so abundant in American jazz. Over time, the most forward-thinking creative talents of the post-Coltrane European jazz generation crafted and nurtured sophisticated and multi-faceted styles of jazz that were as radical as they were beautiful, giving modern jazz a characteristically European flavor. The music is a heady mix indeed; stirring jazz overtures with orchestra and choir, festival performances recorded live from the grassy heartlands of central Europe, modal montages inspired by pilgrimages to Asia and Africa, experiments in rhythm and sound where modern jazz meets traditional Balkan and flamenco folk music. This is spiritual jazz, European-style. All tracks fully licensed and digitally restored from the original master tapes." -Jazzman.

Title: Spiritual Jazz 7: Islam
Format: Double LP
Label: Jazzman
Country: UK
Price: $27.00
"Gatefold sleeve. Esoteric, modal, and progressive jazz, inspired by Islam and recorded between 1957-1988. Songs ancient and divine - the seventh volume of Jazzman Records acclaimed Spiritual Jazz series examines the influence and impact of Islam on four decades of jazz innovation. Through Malcolm X and Muhammad Ali, the civil rights era in America saw African American liberation politics famously associated with Islamic belief. This was not the first time that radical developments in African American cultural life had been widely and famously associated with Islam - that distinction belongs not to political or sporting giants, but to the progressive jazz musicians of the bebop generation. Kenny Clarke, Art Blakey, Sahib Shihab, Gigi Gryce, Idrees Sulieman, Ahmad Jamal, Yusef Lateef; all these legendary jazz pioneers - and countless more - were early converts to the spiritually charged Ahmadiyya school of Islam. Their faith profoundly influenced the music that they made, and the presence of prominent and innovative Muslim musicians at the heart of jazz culture in America has been recognized ever since. The tracks on this collection follow the story of Islam and jazz from the 1950s to the 1980s. Recorded by Muslim jazz musicians, they often draw specifically on Middle Eastern or Islamic music, dream of an esoteric or spiritual Afro-East, or invoke the landscape and sound worlds of Islamic Africa. Spiritual Jazz 7 presents a selection of visionary music - inspired by faith, powered by jazz. Many tracks never before reissued. Features: Maurice McIntyre, Kahil ElZabars Ritual Trio with Malachi Favors & Ari Brown, Pharoah Sanders, Emmanuel Abdul-Rahim, Creative Arts Ensemble, East New York Ensemble De Music, Idrees Sulieman, Jamila Sulieman, Yusef Lateef, Sabu Martinez & Sahib Shihab, Abdelrahman Abdo Elkhatib, Solar Plexus, The Lightmen Plus One, Ahmed Abdul-Malik, and Dawan Muhammad.

Title: Festival Electronica en Abril 2003-2012
Format: Double Lp Box Set
Label: La Casa Encendida
Country: Spain
Price: $31.00
"To commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Festival Electrónica en Abril, born in 2003 at La Casa Encendida, Madrid, La Casa Encendida has invited some of the artists that have left their personal mark on the event, right now the oldest music festival in Madrid. All of them have contributed exclusive tracks to this 2LP that provide an insight into the quality and diversity of the festival. These are ten exclusive tracks that research a very specific sound quality (Eleh, Radian, nsi.), take introspective journeys (Thomas Köner, Maja Ratkje) and summon deep rhythmic collisions (Farben aka Jan Jelinek, Dopplereffekt, Elektro Guzzi, Matmos, SND). All of them seem to share a desire for experimentation that encompasses the emotional as a response to a general state of things that hits us with an overdose of data and experimentation. Matmos track was composed playing around with a friends new synthesizer. Eleh added field recordings to his usual microscopic sound aesthetic for the first time. Thomas Köner composed this intimate and melancholic piece for his grandmother, and Maja Ratkje goes deep into an alien ambient lullaby of ravishing simplicity and beauty. Farben deconstructs rhythm to build it up again as a pure ecstatic house beat. Nsi., the project of Tobias Freund and Max Loderbauer embark on an abyssal expedition to the far reaches of sound. Dopplereffekt melt their retro-futurist electro into crystalline emotions. Elektro Guzzi, always recording live, without overdubs, was helped in the studio by Patrick Pulsinger, taking the bullet train directly to the heart of their amazing analog techno, where guitar, bass and drums truly count. And SND (Mark Fell and Matt Steel) ride on an oblique and funked-up carousel of their own making, where rhythm and math surf together. And finally, Farben goes deep into glorious house-not-house." - La Casa Encendida.

Somethings #1 features Chie Mukai, Sarah Peebles, Masayoshi Urabe, Nick Castro, Preston Swirnoff, Andrew Deutsch/John McPhee and of course Ilya Monosov himself. This collection stresses an ill-defined region between composed music and improvisation, where both elements come into play. Some of the pieces use traditional instrumentation, others use field recordings. Regardless of construction, these are all artists working at the farthest boundary of what is defined (or not yet defined) as music, hence the title of the album." - Last Visible Dog.

Title: (The Microcosm): Visionary Music of Continental Europe, 1970-1986
Format: Triple LP Box Set
Label: Light In The Attic
Country: USA
Price: $54.00
Deluxe Stoughton "tip-on" jackets and slipcase. "The follow-up to Light In The Attics game-changing I Am The Center box set is finally here. Three years in the making, The Microcosm: Visionary Music Of Continental Europe, 1970-1986 is the first major overview of key works from cosmically-taped in artists needing little introduction -- Vangelis, Ash Ra Tempel, and Popol Vuh -- and unknown masterpieces by criminally overlooked heroes like Bernard Xolotl, Robert Julian Horky and Enno Velthuys. Whereas I Am The Center called for a reconsideration of an entire maligned genre, The Microcosm requests nothing more than an open mind to consider this ambient, new age, neuzeit, prog, krautrock, cosmic, holistic stuff, whatever one calls it -- as a pulsating movement unto itself, a mirror refracting the American new age scene in unexpected, electrifying ways, proving beyond a shadow of a doubt the universality of the timeless quest to express the Ineffable through music. Drawing from major label budgets and homemade cassette distributed circumstances alike, The Microcosm demonstrates a depth of peace profound to behold, and clearly expands the boundaries. Lovingly conceived and lavishly presented by producer Douglas Mcgowan (Yoga Records) and liner notes contributor Jason Patrick Woodbury (Pitchfork, Aquarium Drunkard), The Microcosm features stunning cover paintings by astronomer/entomologist Étienne Trouvelot, and labels by Finnish savant Aleksanda Ionowa. Remastered audio, including a previously unreleased track and several others previously cassette only." - Light In the Attic.

Title: I Am the Center: Private Issue New Age in America, 1950-1990
Format: Triple LP Box Set
Label: Light In The Attic
Country: USA
Price: $45.00
"Triple LP version housed in slip case with three tip-on jackets, 20-page book, and download card. Notes by Douglas McGowan featuring interviews with artists and includes rare archive photos. Vinyl cut by John Golden. Pressed at RTI. Remastered from original sources at 24 bit/96 kHz. Forget everything you know, or think you know, about new age, a genre that has become one of the defining musical-archaeological explorations of the past decade. I Am the Center: Private Issue New Age In America, 1950-1990 is the first major anthology to survey the golden age of new age and reveal the unbelievable truth about the genre. For new age, at its best, is a reverberation of psychedelic music, and great by any standard. This is analog, handmade music communicating soul and spirit, often done on limited means and without commercial potential, self-published and self-distributed. Before it became big business and devolved into the spaced out elevator music we know and loathe today, this was the real thing. From mathematical musical algorithms to airport murder mysteries to Henry Mancini and Bugs Bunny, the connections to mainstream culture run in curious directions. (Did you know, for instance, that a track from the first modern private press new age album is featured on the Blade Runner soundtrack? Its called Pompeii, 76 A.D. and weve got it here.) I Am the Center is a knowing, but never cynical overview that invites listeners at last to the mainspring of a misunderstood genres greatest lights. Many of the biggest names are present -- Iasos, inter-dimentional channeler of paradise music; Laraaji, discovered by Brian Eno playing for spare change in Washington Square Park; and the recently famous JD Emmanuel, icon to a new generation of drone, ambient, noise musicians. Call it what you will -- before it was anything else, it was new age. Lovingly conceived and lavishly presented, I Am the Center features stunning paintings by the legendary visual artist Gilbert Williams, and liner notes by producer Douglas McGowan, who weaves the words and images of the wizards and sorceresses of new age into a prismatic portrait of music that can finally be recognized for what it is: great American folk art." -Light In The Attic.

Format: Double CD
Label: Light In The Attic
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"Largely unheard, criminally undocumented, but at their core, utterly revolutionary, the recordings of the diverse North American Aboriginal community will finally take their rightful place in our collective history in the form of Native North America (Vol. 1): Aboriginal Folk, Rock, and Country 1966-1985. An anthology of music that was once near-extinct and off-the-grid is now available for all to hear, in what is, without a doubt, Light In The Attics most ambitious and historically significant project in the labels 12-year journey. Native North America (Vol. 1) features music from the Indigenous peoples of Canada and the northern United States, recorded in the turbulent decades between 1966 to 1985. It represents the fusion of shifting global popular culture and a reawakening of Aboriginal spirituality and expression. The majority of this material has been widely unavailable for decades, hindered by lack of distribution or industry support and by limited mass media coverage, until now. Youll hear Arctic garage rock from the Nunavik region of northern Quebec, melancholy Yupik folk from Alaska, and hushed country blues from the Wagmatcook First Nation reserve in Nova Scotia. Youll hear echoes of Neil Young, Velvet Underground, Leonard Cohen, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Johnny Cash, and more among the songs, but injected with Native consciousness, storytelling, poetry, history, and ceremony. The stories behind the music presented onNative North America (Vol. 1) range from standard rock-and-roll dreams to transcendental epiphanies. They have been collected with love and respect by Vancouver-based record archaeologist and curator Kevin Sipreano Howes in a 15-year quest to unearth the history that falls between the notes of this unique music. Tirelessly, Howes scoured obscure, remote areas for the original vinyl recordings and the artists who made them, going so far as to send messages in Inuktitut over community radio airwaves in hopes that these lost cultural heroes would resurface. Considering the financially motivated destruction of our environment, the conservative political landscape, and corporate bottom-line dominance, its bittersweet to report that the revolutionary songs featured on Native North America hold as much meaning today as when they were originally recorded. 34 tracks newly re-mastered. Deluxe 2xCD set features a hard-cover 120 page book with comprehensive liner notes, artist interviews, unseen archival photos, and lyrics (with translations)." - Light In The Attic.

Title: Groove Club Vol. 3: Cambodia Rock Intensified!
Format: Double LP
Label: Lion Productions
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"There were no deluxe studios for the musicians who recorded the devastating tracks contained on this double-LP collection. Nothing so grand. Most of these tracks were recorded live, with traditional instruments finding a place alongside any keyboards or guitars that could be found. And yet, it was these experiments of Khmer rock musicians which transformed the nightlife of the Cambodian capital, Phnom Penh—and which many years later have seduced countless listeners around the world with their groovy sound. Alas, in 1975 came an entirely different type of transformation: the rise to power in Cambodia of the fanatical, anti-Western Khmer Rouge, led by Pol Pot. Within roughly four years, implementing their “concept of Year Zero,” Pot and his regime were responsible for the deaths of an estimated two million Cambodians, many in the notorious “killing fields.” Even the most famous and beloved Khmer musicians could not escape. Sinn Sisamouth (“the Emperor of Khmer Music”), Ros Sereysothea (“The Golden Voice of the Royal Capital”), and Pan Ron—all featured on this collection—met their deaths at the hands of  the Khmer Rouge. Cambodian rock music is (rightfully) adored in Cambodia. The music is wild and anarchic, rhythmic and undulating (in an “Ethiopiques” way, wed say), or sweet and lyrical, but always moving, and with that deep soulfulness (regardless of actual musical genre or style) that singles out the best music. We have assembled what we consider to be the most definitive collection of classic Cambodian rock music to appear thus far—without the later overdubs that confuse the mind, without the artificial speeding up of tracks that often has marred compilations over the years; what youll find here are crucial Khmer rock tracks, made available in the best possible sound, assembled with love and respect for the artists who made the Khmer rock scene as thrilling as we find it to be. And so, without further ado, welcome to “Cambodia Rock Intensified!” -Lion Productions.

Label: Lion Productions
Country: France
Price: $30.00
"Amazing sessions by the cream of underground French prog and psych bands, first released in 1971 on Thélème, a boutique label owned by Magma bassist and Barclay Records manager Laurent Thibault. When Thibault founded Thélème, he wanted to set up a prestige outfit. He had this in mind when he set out to fulfill his ambition of presenting a panorama of the French rock scene by gathering the best groups in France together on one double-album, to be recorded at the legendary Chateau dHérouville studio, live in the courtyard with no overdubs. Thibault had hoped that labels would allow their best acts to appear. Philips offered Magma (the version of Mekanik Kommando appearing on Puissance is the first ever conceived or recorded by the band) and Catherine Ribeiro; Barclay allowed Alain Markusfeld to participate; Le Chant du Monde let Voyage appear. The band Catharsis said yes; so did Contrepoint, discovered by Magmas René Garber. Thélème artists included Ergo Sum, MOR, Zabu, and Solitude. Two guests from America were recommended by Le Chant du Monde: folk-singers Roger Mason and Steve Waring. And happily Spectre, a band featuring legendary Hérouville engineer Dominique Blanc-Francart, brought the monster prog jazz funk synth madness of Arkham. Brilliant! Features titans such as Magma, Catherine Ribeiro, Alain Markusfeld, Dominique Blanc-Francart, and more! One-time pressing, housed in a special textured linen finish gatefold jacket. Lush four-page color insert has historical notes + band info + rare photos." - Lion Productions.

Title: Arktinen Hysteria: Suomi-avantgarden Esipuutarhureita
Format: CD
Label: Love
Country: Finland
Price: $15.00
⿿The Arktinen Hysteria compilation that came out in November 2001 was compiled by Jukka Lindfors, based on his series of radio documentaries for Finnish Broadcasting Company. Together here are gathered for the first time some seminal tracks usually considered the milestones of early Finnish electronic music; being the real predecessors of the sounds of Mika Vainio, Pan sonic & et al.; combined with some rarities and previously unpublished tracks. The album concentrates mostly around the output of the now-legendary Love Records label, varying from electronic music to avantgarde sounds, free-jazz and experimental rock. Here one can witness some truly timeless electronic pioneering works, delving into the real Finnish analogue roots of glitch, clicks & cuts and even modern laptop sounds. Artists include: M.A. Numminen, Tommi Parko, Pekka Kujanpää (future underground guru M.A. Numminen and his cohorts burping and gurgling to a simple blues theme playing in the background, as part of this home-made tape recorded in 1961), M.A. Numminen & Sähkökvartetti (Holy Grail of Finnish electronic music, creepy-sounding and even hymn-like, with wailing and sounding like electronic insects), Tommi Parko (avantgardistic pranks), Erkki Salmenhaara (sounds like a constant switching of dial between radio stations: snippets of orchestral sounds, reverberated electronics, harpsichord, piano etudes, whatever), Blues Section (the territory of backwards tapes, tape loops and other "mind-blowing" sonic regalia of the late 60s), Erkki Kurenniemi (This could be something by Hecker of Mego Records, only 30 years before laptops), Jukka Ruohomäki (non-machine-like electronic pop music), Jouni Kesti & Seppo I. Laine (Pure noise inferno of explosions and chaos), The Sperm (a combination of an experimental rock group and a provocative performance group, features undecipherable vocals mumbling, screeching, murmuring, screaming utter nonsense), J.O. Mallander (Dadaist piece of conceptual art, an aural counterpart to what Andy Warhol did with his movies of repeated boredom), The Sperm (a free-for-all melee of cacophony, like some collective lunatic asylum art therapy), Pekka Airaksinen (murky sauna hut sound expressions, total antimusic and again, totally ageless), S. Albert Kivinen (This aleatoric assault is about the then-US Vice President Spiro Agnew).⿝ - Love. Amazing CD of LAFMS-type sounds, but recorded 10-20 years earlier! With thick, indepth booklet of photos and text (in english and finnish). Highly recommended!!

Title: Psychedelic Phinland
Format: Double CD
Label: Love
Country: Finland
Price: $25.00
Subtitled: Finnish Hippie & Underground Music 1967-1974. Amazing collection of underground Finnish music, presented in definitive fashion by the original Love Records label. Great booklet of English notes and photos, Love Records does it again! From the liner notes: "CD1 opens with some topical commentaries on drugs and the hippie lifestyle, as well as with early Finnish psych-rock, followed by more agitatory and provocatory stuff like Suomen Talvisofta who hilariously combined anarchist ideas with psychedelic imagery. After the heyday of he Underground movement, the more mystic legacy of hippiedome was preserved by the esoteric balladry of Pekka Streng, Hector and others. CD2 presents more experimental Underground, avant-garde and laternative music, most of it for the fist time on CD or previously not issued. Love Records and the small Eteenpain! (Forward), Finlands counterpart to ESP Records, were the main labels for the kind of music heard on both CDs." - Love.

Price: $28.00
RSD 2016 release. 160-gram LP. Limited edition of 500. "The second volume of Der Zeltweg - Italian Tapes Industrial Music 1982-1984, documenting the legendary Musumecis Der Zeltweg tape label, which existed for a few years in the early 80s. While the A-side collects music produced by some of Musumecis side projects (Errata-S-Corrige, Gasdehyde, Herpes-Z) introduced in the first volume of Der Zeltweg (2015) (plus a previously unreleased early Musumeco studio track), the B-side contains the first full reissue of the Il Fantasma della Libertà tape by The Psychopathic Blossom (Der Zeltweg 002), an unexpected, experimental guitar-bass-noise album permeated with Italian-language philosophical declamations and short, pulsating rhythms. For a brief moment Turin was Italys Sheffield, producing an astonishing number of DIY electronic groups. In the context of a wider Europe, Italy has never been thought of as a hotbed of minimal electronic music, but Mannequins Danza Meccanica: Italian Synth Wave compilations have shone a light on a scene that was relatively unknown even within Italys borders. Musumeci is one of the labels most obscure discoveries, but its combined reissue of Musumecis two super-rare demo tapes (MNQ 042LP, 2013) was just the beginning. The mission is now terminated with the second volume of Der Zeltweg - Italian Tapes Industrial Music 1982-1984. Mastered by Rude 66.

Price: $28.00
RSD 2016 release. Limited edition of 500. "klangFarBe: German Democratic Republic Tape Music 1983-1987 is a compilation of tracks from Frank Bretschneiders legendary experimental new wave label klangFarBe, which Bretschneider ran from 1985 to 1989 in Karl-Marx-Stadt, East Germany (now known as Chemnitz). Bretschneider, who would go on to found the raster-noton label with Olaf Bender and Carsten Nicolai, established klangFarBe to make his music accessible to a small group of interested parties, eventually publishing eight releases in all. Due to the restrictive laws in the German Democratic Republic, where media was completely controlled by the government and any private publishing was actually illegal, it was only possible to publish releases in very limited editions. At first only known to a handful of specialists, the label soon became well known with the help of Lutz Schramm, host of the famous Parocktikum radio program on East Germanys DT 64 station. With the fall of the wall, Bretschneider gained new opportunities to publish his music in a more professional way, and closed down klangFarBe in 1989 after releasing its final cassette, Trickbeat by Bretschneiders new wave band AG. Geige. This collection includes tracks by Bretschneider, Kriminelle Tanzkapelle (Bretschneider and Fritz-Hendrik Melle), Stein im Brett (Bretschneider and Matthias Stein), and AG. Geige.

Country: Germany
Price: $29.00
"The Crystal Flowers compilation is a transposition of Florine Stettheimers poems (published posthumously by her sister Ettie in a limited edition volume titled Crystal Flowers in 1949) into song or other vocal interpretation by Karl Holmqvist/Stefan Tcherepnin, Lorraine OGrady, Dignity Sister, Ei Arakawa/Sergei Tcherepnin, DJ Complicated, Jutta Koether, Dan Fox, Megan Francis Sullivan, David Lieske, Kim Gordon, Fanki And The Frogs, Bogdan Mooczkowsky/Vilde von Krigh/Mikael D. Brkic and Steven Warwick/Magnus Schaefer." -Mathew-Rec. "I associate Florine Stettheimer with moving to the city to begin art school, with making a friend, and struggling to find a motive in history that I could relate to, something to project into. During the late 90s, in a surprisingly homophobic and theoretically stale New York art school atmosphere, to come upon the scenes Florine Stettheimer painted offered secret elation and a sense of kinship. Flipping through issues of Charles Henri Fords View Magazine in the library, I came upon Virgil Thompsons "Portrait of Florine Stettheimer," a musical composition as portrait, which, like Gertrude Steins portraits in text, aimed for something like an affectionate caricature of someone considered a peer. This encounter with Florine Stettheimer seen through the lens of musical notation, reminded me of the charge of so many first encounters: the way in which the new "object" remains opaque yet also shimmeringly open, illegible, like a sheet of music, but not withholding. Ken Okiishi and I made a record on which each of us performed a sight-reading of Thompsons portrait on the piano. The effect was awkward, amateurish -- interpretation gave out under the technical challenge of simply trying to play the unknown piece -- in some sense magnifying the tensions and pitfalls inherent in trying to invoke Stettheimer, or anybody. Some years later, Ken found a copy of Crystal Flowers, and we were both thrilled to read the poems and the texts written as tho from a diary in the voice of Florine Stettheimer -- to find that like her paintings, the poems are so present. Stylized, ornate, jazzy, sharp, wistful, sugary -- the poems jubilantly synthesize in Stettheimers unmistakeable tone the pleasures, pangs, and aspirations of a life in culture. It seemed to lie on the hand for these poems to find other voices, or the response that they call out for at this point in time, perhaps as a way to measure the difference. I wanted to re-publish this small volume, intended for Florines friends and the friends of her paintings, in a warped way, and landed on the form of an LP collection of songs and voice tracks by various individuals interpreting or refracting the text. While some of the people I invited already knew Florines work very well, for others this was an entirely new encounter." -Nick Mauss.

Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Pressed on 180-gram vinyl; includes 23" x 23" foldout poster. Originally issued in 1981, Miniatures is a concept compilation album that is certain to delight the listener on a multitude of fronts simultaneously. Conceived in 1980 by Morgan Fisher (erstwhile keyboardist for Mott the Hoople) as a means of addressing the scope of music and musicians that he loved but lacked time enough to release, Miniatures draws from an array of artists whose submissions exist within the strict framework of a 60-second maximum track length. The pieces wriggle excitedly in their rapid and unrelenting succession, sequenced with insight sufficient to create an infinitely curious netherworld. Contributors provide their chosen 60 seconds of indulgence -- be it Andy Partridge offering "The History of RocknRoll," noted author/psychoanalyst R. D. Laing giving us a father/son duet of "Tipperary," or Roger McGough reciting "The Wreck of the Hesperus" in its entirety -- and, while each track offers a distinct and separate thrill, the whole of Miniatures is both a monument to the creativity of its time and a living reminder of humanity in its preposterous glory. With no room for filler of any kind, Miniatures is a consistently refreshing revelation. Filled with abrupt, often beautiful, utterances from a bewildering diversity of artists (what other album contains both Pete Seeger and The Residents?), Miniatures is imbued throughout with self-awareness that, beneath an umbrella of shared and voluntary absurdity, scuppers any veneer of remoteness. In its place lies the intersection of naked curiosity with love of music. Includes tracks by Ollie Halsall & John Halsey, The Residents, Roger McGough, Morgan Fisher, John Otway, Pete Challis & Phil Diplock, Robert Wyatt, Stinky Winkles, Mary Longford, Andy Thunderclap Newman, David Bedford, Fred Frith, Maggie Nicols, Joseph Racaille, The Work, Neil Innes & Son, Herbert Distel, Lol Coxhill, Ken Ellis, Steve Miller, Norman Lovett, Patrick Portella, George Melly, Robert Fripp, Andy Partridge (XTC), Phantom Captain, Ron Geesin, Alejandro Viñao, Quentin Crisp, Simon Desorgher, Ralph Steadman, R.D.Laing & Son, Trevor Wishart, John White, Ivor Cutler, Hector Zazou, Michael Bass & Ellen Tenenbaum, Martin Chambers (The Pretenders), Bob Cobbing & Henri Chopin, Dave Vanian (The Damned), Metabolist, Gavin Bryars, 1/2 Japanese, Simon Jeffes, Mark Perry, Michael Nyman, David Cunningham (The Flying Lizards), Kevin Coyne, Etron Fou Leloublan, Neil Oram & Ken Campbell & The Science Fiction Theatre of Liverpool, and Pete Seeger." - Megaphone/Knock Em Dead.

"The Nuggets (1972) of krautrock, Cologne Curiosities collects for the first time on vinyl, all the otherwise unpublished/un-reissued material that originally appeared on the three Unknown Deutschland - The Krautrock Archive CDs released on Virgin in 1996. These CD only releases were originally compiled by Trevor Manwaring (Paratactile, Impetus, Virgin, Harmonia Mundi) from tapes supplied to him by Toby Robinson. Toby, aka The Mad Twiddler, aka Genius P. Orridge, is well-known to krautrock collectors as one of a number of engineers working at Stockhausens WDR and Dierks Studio in Cologne in the mid-1970s, where he assisted on recordings by many famous kraut bands such as Can, Birth Control, Mythos and Dzyan. The recordings included here were made between 1972 and 1976 using studios in and around Cologne, produced by Toby Robinson for his own amusement. Bands would come in for practice sessions, to record demos, and during slack periods, impromptu jams would happen. Most of these sessions were recorded by Toby, and they feature Toby himself plus a revolving cast of friends and musicians (some of them apparently big kraut names under pseudonym). Including lost-in-time bands/studio projects like Astral Army, Fuerrote, Spirulina and Baal among others, the music here ranges from killer proto-new wave kraut psych to wild space rock, proto-ambient electronic, dark psychedelia and raw kosmische sounds with lots of analog synths/Moog. It was during that time in Cologne, that Toby, along with Fluxus artist Robin Page, gave birth to the mysterious and controversial Pyramid label, for which these tracks were originally made for. 24-bit domain remaster from the original master tapes.

"Messthetics returns to London - mostly to a handful of Tube-stops along the Central and Northern Lines. #107 also includes a special 7-band, 6-page feature on the legendary Dining Out label. Rough-edged new wave wonders, scrappy D.I.Y.-punk, ear-boggling home experiments - and the usual quota of accidental pop from fifth-form teens, art-school grads and committed hippies. Some recorded in actual studios, others on stand-alone cassette-decks placed just so on the squat- or church-hall floor. With ex-members of Spitfire Boys, Tax Exiles and Flying Lizards; others went on to Weekend, Alien Sex Fiend, A Certain Ratio, 400 Blows, Alabama 3, Celestial, Afro Celt Sound System, Fraff, Late Night Poker, and ..and the Native Hipsters. Plus 5 bands that got their start at Raynes Park High School for Boys, Morden. Messthetics #107 features obscure vinyl sides from Disco Zombies, Demon Preacher, Jelly Babies, Six Minute War, Stepping Talk, Occult Chemistry, The Patterns, 49 Americans, Avocados, Methodishca Tune, Jangletties, Stolen Power, Flags, The Steppes, The Insex, The Milkmen, Design for Living, Twilight Zoners, and Club Tango.

Title: Messthetics #108: South Coast D.I.Y. 77-81
Format: CD
Label: Messthetics
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"D.I.Y. and (very) indie postpunk from the South Coast 1977-81 (vol. 1: Bournemouth-to-Brighton). Throughout the age of Punk and postpunk the English music press, the major labels, and the established indies ignored the South Coast with surprising thoroughness. Their neglect blurred lines between potential chart acts, Rough Trade prospects, and deliberate D.I.Y., so that the South Coast scenes (while still insular) remained highly varied, while D.I.Y. became less a choice than a necessity. Except for the Mods, hardly anyone put out records on their own, so instead the best documents of South Coast postpunk were a handful of excellent local compilations and a raft of barely-circulated tapes -- that account for a majority of the tracks here. Messthetics purists may note with alarm that almost every band on #108 had a proper drum-kit (sacrilege!) and also performed regularly in public. Still, there are Messthetics sounds of all species on #108 -- and its our most generous selection yet! 24 songs on the CD plus 10 bonus MP3s and a video: 110 minutes of music; 28-page booklet, extensively documented with histories, photos and artifacts." -Messthetics

Format: CD

Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"...Cassette Culture D.I.Y.: 1979-1982 (Volume 1). An introduction to the D.I.Y. cassette scene 1979-84. The U.K.s original cassette-scene hosted some of the most inept shambling in the history of recorded music, but there was no shortage of musical genius, either (be that accidental or otherwise). From endless bedrooms filled with home-made gadgets, Woolworths guitars, Casios and soldering fumes, came sounds both stunningly simple and sophisticated -- and vastly more varied than anything on vinyl. These artists seldom made more than 100 copies of their cassettes and typically circulated them for free, with untold thousands of tapes changing hands through the Royal Post. Messthetics new series samples the more, er, musical sides of the scene (lots of cool electronics, but no ambient or industrial -- and everythings under 5 minutes!): Here is D.I.Y. at its most liberated. Twenty-five tracks on the CD plus five bonus MP3s. 90+ minutes of music. 24-page booklet, crammed with histories, photos, artifacts and an essay from Mick Sinclair, who wrote the original Cassette Pets column for Sounds. Messthetics Greatest Hiss features the superstars of cassette culture and plenty of others: The Jelly Babies, Danny & the Dressmakers, Storm Bugs, Colin Potter, Event Group, The Get, Instant Automatons, Missing Persons, Gravity Craze, Farming Jim & his Hepcat Groovstas, 391, The Chromosomes, Mike Jones, The Living Dead no. 5, Digital Dinosaurs, The Twizlers, Aconite, Casual Labourers (Bendle and other DIY heavies), Midnight Circus, Milkshake Melon, Funhouse, Cultural Amnesia, Stripey Zebras, Chimp Eats Bananas (pre-Chumbawamba!) and Dean Johnson." -Messthetics

Format: 7"
Label: Milvia Son
Country: USA
Price: $5.00
"Just A Little Bit provides an overview of the labels current roster, four tracks clocking in around 9 minutes total, each by a different artist. First up is O Carl by Bob Frankford, recorded during Bobs middle period. Says Bob: After the car accident, I was unable to move my fingers or toes for several months. But I could sing and I could play the turntable. And thus, a song is born. Next we hear from the Korg-abusing electrofreak, Jaki Jakizawa, providing his impression of one of R2D2s greasiest dreams, entitled Now You Hate the Swedes. Side B blasts forth with Day Nudes, a guitar feedback mini-nightmare created by Bad Drumlin Grass as an homage to a few of their southern hemisphere heroes. Concluding the record is the unforgettable Little Bit, sung and strummed by a certain Petomane, a fellow who sounds not unlike Lou Reed doing an imitation of Skip Spence covering Lou Reed. Full color jackets, insert featuring pictures of the artists, 250 copies pressed, priced for the Great Recession." - Milvia Son.

Orgelvärk is a compilation of Swedish synthpop, experimental and industrial music representative of the underground tape scene that thrived there in the 1980s.

The vinyl edition includes five previously unreleased tracks which were submitted to Tor for the original 1986 cassette release but due to space limitations, never made it on there. All the audio has been remastered from the original tapes especially for vinyl by Tor himself. Limited edition of 999 hand-num- bered copies, pressed on 160 gram vinyl and presented in a matte gatefold jacket with a letter from Tor accompanied by further information on the bands." - Minimal Wave.

Title: I Dont Feel at Home in this World Anymore 1927-1948
Format: LP
Label: Mississippi
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"This compilation is our tribute to the music made in the U.S. between 1927 and 1948. We decided not only to focus on traditional genres (blues, old-time, Cajun), but to also show the music that was brought by the boatloads of immigrants coming to these shores. Their music influenced and still affects our culture today. The album starts off with a heavenly example of Greek rebetica from Marika Papagika. Also featured is early Tex-Mex pioneer Lydia Mendoza and gospel duo Two Gospel Keys. The latter gives us our title track. Louisiana Cajun music is beautifully executed by artists Cleoma Falcon and Blind Uncle Gaspard with Dela Lachney. The Blue Sky Boys may be considered old-time, but their haunting, melancholic harmonies belong in their own genre. The Caresser and Wilmouth Houdini bring on the Calypso with that New York jazz flavor. Hawaiian slack key guitar is demonstrated by Mike Hanapis Ilima Islanders and Mme. Rivieres Hawaiians. Aside from Calypso, NY was also a big hub for Jewish klezmer, as shown by Jacob Hoffman playing with Henry Kandels Orchestra. Sexteto Bolona is a great example of the roots of salsa and theres even a mystery track by an unknown Indonesian folk singer of the time. The comp ends with blues performer Big Boy Cleveland with his oddly original Quill Blues. A beautiful record from beginning to end." -Mississippi Records.

"People were saying that Southern folk song was dead, that the land that had produced American jazz, the blues, the spirituals, the mountain ballads and the work songs had gone sterile." -- Alan Lomax, 1960. "In 1959 and 1960, at the height of the Folk Revival, Alan Lomax undertook the first-ever stereo field recording trip through the American South to document its still thriving vernacular musical culture. He traveled through Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas, Georgia, and North Carolina, making over 70 hours of recordings. The trip came to be known as Lomaxs Southern Journey, and its recordings were first issued for the Atlantic and Prestige labels in the early 60s. Those, however, as well as subsequent releases on New World and Rounder Records, are now all out of print. To remedy this, and to celebrate the Southern Journeys 50th anniversary, Mississippi Records and the Alan Lomax Collection have collaborated on five commemorative LPs, spanning the breadth of Lomaxs 59-60 Southern recordings, drawing on new transfers of the original 1/4" tapes, and featuring a considerable amount of previously unreleased material. The five LP volumes feature singing siblings Hobart Smith and Texas Gladden from Saltville, Virginia; menhaden fishermens chorus the Bright Light Quartet; the Young Brothers Mississippi Hill Country fife and drum band; Blue Ridge instrumentalists Wade Ward and Charlie Higgins; Bessie Jones and the Georgia Sea Island Singers; work songs and hollers from Parchman Farm; congregational hymns from African American and white Appalachian meeting-houses; Alabamas singing washerwoman Vera Ward Hall; the 1959 United Sacred Harp Convention; and the debut recordings of bluesman Fred McDowell, among much else. Each volume is being sold separately with its own distinctive packaging. All come with a 12-page booklet featuring many never before published photos. Old school tip on sleeves & beautiful sound.

Title: Piano Music Of The Near East (Performed by Amiram Rigai, piano)
Format: LP
Label: Modern Silence
Country: Malta
Price: $27.00
"Modern Silence present a reissue of Piano Music Of The Near East, originally released in 1963. This stunning 20th-century piano music was inspired by national traditions but uses the language and form of Western music. Features pieces by: Manolis Kalomiri, Paul Ben-Haim, Ilhan Mimaroglu, Andre Amine Hossein, Anis Fuleihan, and Amiran Rigai. All works played on piano by Amiran Rigai. From the original liner notes: "In the countries of the Near East, as in any other country where occidental culture is adoptive, musical composition modeled after its occidental counterpart came into being out of an intellectual necessity: that of finding a substitute for a traditional music which, under the dictate of its very essence, resisted evolution and was consequently in decay. It was logical, as far as both the ideals and the basic methods of this process of substitution were concerned, that the fashioning be done after the examples of the national schools of the late nineteenth-century Europe. The first stream of the westernized near eastern music was therefore romantic (or post-romantic, or impressionist) in its overall gesture. Regardless of the composition date of each individual opus, all of the works recorded here fall into this category: music inspired by national traditions (musical, or other), displaying at least that intangible called national character whenever a national element is not evident, but employing a language and a medium belonging to western music (...)" - Modern Silence.

Some utilize conventional musical instruments and sounds in startlingly new ways, giving an impression of an actual new sound being created; some use instruments new to music (electrical, mechanical and natural) adding to the composers palette of timbres and tonalities. . . . SIDE II of this record is meant as a tool for those using new sounds and techniques in composing. There are basic sounds (some of which are hard to come by) and basic sound patterns, together with examples of how these sounds and patterns may be utilized." - original liner notes by Eugene Bruck.

"Sounds of New Music is a legendary collection of 18 compositions from the 1920s to the mid-1950s; composers include Edgard Varèse, Henry Cowell, Vladimir Ussachevsky, Otto Luening, Julius Meytuss, Alexander Mossolov, Halim El-Dabh, and John Cage, whose "Dance" is performed on a transformed Steinway piano that gives the music an almost primitive quality. Side B (The Experiments) includes works by Ussachevsky, Henry Jacobs, and Roger Marin & Frederic Ramsey, Jr. Originally released by Folkways Records in 1957." - Modern Silence.

Title: La Ciudad Secreta: The Experimental Sounds of Barcelona 1971-1991
Format: Triple LP
Label: Munster
Country: Spain
Price: $37.00
“At the end of the 1960s, perhaps due to its proximity to Paris, Barcelona had become the forefront of the avant-garde and the entryway in Spain of new forms of cultural expression from Europe and the United States. Musically, that characteristic resulted in a middle-class underground that would play the part of a late local counterculture which gave birth to the so-called Barcelonés progressive rock of 1969-1973. It featured bands such as Máquina!, Om, Música Dispersa, and so on. Material from that period would take decades to be re-appreciated and get the same reissue treatment as Barcelonas jazz-rock scene, its continuation, and punk, its executioner, the latter two being particularly prolific genres in Barcelona in the late 70s and 80s. Concurrent with progressive rock, the trigger for another explosion of creativity -- still more prolific and experimental and, consequently, more obscure and marginal -- was developing in the underground of the city. This movement, breaking away from free jazz, branched out throughout two decades into electronic, punk, industrial, improvisation, noise music, art rock and even singer-songwriter music. It wasnt so much a scene, technically speaking, as it was an eclectic series of individuals and circumstances which Munster has the privilege of compiling here in the interest of recovering a lost legacy. Its a legacy that collectively we could and should value as something as stimulating and multi-faceted as that of Krautrock, the Canterbury scene or Rock In Opposition. That eclectic experimental eruption also encouraged the first known independent record labels in Spain and likewise served as a laboratory for new technologies, rethinking formats and declaring strategies. The artists of the experimental frontline collected here make up a dynamic melting pot thats still surprising in its color and its idiosyncrasies, in its innovative sounds and in its capacity for survival in a hostile environment. This movement also established valuable connections in France and England, taking part in a fruitful exchange with networks like mail art, the International Cassette Network and independent radio, in particular the local station Radio PICA, where many of the musicians in Barcelona had their own programs. Some of the keys to that ubiquity were self-management and self-released recordings, cooperativism and DIY ethics. This included the invention of a set of technologies that produced signal generators, oscillators, synthesizers and other homemade devices. Still, you would need an entire book -- there is one in fact, published only in Spanish -- to get the whole picture of this intrepid adventure. The 29 songs compiled here, all remastered, mostly unreleased and nearly impossible to find, give testimony of that adventure, about its existence and its timelessness. The 12-page booklet features extensive notes in English by journalist Jaime Gonzalo, plus numerous band photos and memorabilia.” - Munster.

Both formats include booklets with an essay in Spanish and English by journalist Jesús Rodríguez Lenin and contributions by Beatriz Alonso Aranzábal (Los Monaguillosh) and Carlos Entrena (Décima Víctima), plus many artist photos and memorabilia. "The damn Movida. The best that can be said of that phenomenon is that it was the starting point and the trigger of something else, of another movement that garnered no fame but was far more interesting musically and intellectually, although the glow of glamour went to the fatuous flames of superficiality. This other movement, in contrast, had neither name nor anyone singing its praises. It centered on the existential angst described by the Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard instead of the jovial innocence of silly pop in the late 70s and the very early 80s of the last century. It wasnt a time for joking around. The outlook was grim and, logically, after a few years that we had wanted to celebrate because of the death of Franco, murky and ominous images began to inhabit the collective subconscious of those youths who were apolitical by necessity. The most extraordinary paradox is that is that it was a light-hearted new wave group, Ejecutivos Agresivos, that served as the seed for this shift in orientation. Many characters came together in that group who were going to do a 180 on the music that was being made. Carlos Entrena, their singer, who would become one of the founders of the GASA label and the leader of Décima Víctima was there. Also there was Ignacio Gasca, a boy from San Sebastián known as Pochwho, after the breakup of Ejecutivos Agresivos, would form Derribos Arias. Jaime Urrutia was in the line-up, who would soon be the singer and guitarist of Gabinete Caligari. The band included Juan Luis Vizcaya, who had a brief stint as the drummer of Alaska y los Pegamoides. Also a member was Paco Trinidad, who would become another founder of GASA and who, with time, would become the main record producer of the 1980s (Hombres G, Duncan Dhu). The transition from one era to another even had an exact date: the 13th of November, 1982. On that day, in the auditorium of the Escuela de Caminos de Madrid, the last concert that Alaska y los Pegamoides played in Madrid took place, although none of the members themselves knew this for sure at the time. They gave to their fans, along with the tickets, a flexi-disc that included two unreleased songs -- Volar and El jardín -- both written by Eduardo Benavente (also of Parálisis Permanente), with a theme and style that had nothing to do with what Alaska y los Pegamoides had done so far. To wrap up that moment symbolically, the group that opened the show was Los Monaguillosh, who would shortly become one of the best-known bands of the nascent psychedelic siniestro sound." - Jesús Rodríguez Lenin.

Format: CD
Label: Munster
Country: Spain
Price: $18.00
"It happened during the peak of the media excitement over the countercultural movement known as "Movida Madrileña." That DIY spirit, that in Spain was awakened later than in others due to the political ballast of nearly 40 years of dictatorship, had but one stage where not all of its protagonists could fit. Still, some even preferred to move away from the spotlight. Between 1980 and 1985, through the width and breadth of all of Spain, groups began to emerge that captured the fundamental essence of underground acts from other parts of the globe. New Yorks No Wave, the avant-garde pop of The Residents, the possibilities of technical manipulation or the less exhibitionist side of post-punk were adopted with the radical imagination, passion and freedom that comes from not having to answer to anyone. The success of those bands lay with breaking with the past and never looking back, burning their boats with each recording; they gave everything without expecting anything, making tension the criterion for quality. At a time when certain kinds of records werent easily available in Spain and the chances to see the most fearless foreign bands live were scarce, a number of people and small collectives, inevitably centered around Madrid and Barcelona, created a diverse scene of bands, labels and fanzines which slowly and bravely developed and gained followers across the whole country. Cities like New York, London and Berlin served as examples to follow. Within this varied group of artists there was room for industrial sounds, daring post-punk, out-rock, mutant funk, dark wave, weird dance music and pure experimentalism. Tensión is the first comprehensive compilation of this most daring side of the early 80s Spanish music scene. Most tracks reissued for the first time, plus two previously-unreleased tracks. Sleeve notes written by César Estabiel, illustrated with original artwork and memorabilia." -Munster.

Format: Double LP
Label: Music From Memory
Country: Netherlands
Price: $33.00
"For their first multi-artist compilation, Music From Memory take a trip to the heart of the Amazon rainforest. Outro Tempo: Electronic And Contemporary Music From Brazil, 1978-1992 is a double LP that explores the outer reaches of Brazilian music, where indigenous rhythms mix with synthesizers and where MPB mingles with drum computers. As Brazil faced the last years of its military dictatorship and transition to democracy, a generation of forward-thinking musicians developed an alternative vision of Brazilian music and culture. They embraced traditionally shunned electronic production methods and infused their music with elements of ambient, jazz-fusion, and minimalism. At the same time they referenced the musical forms and spirituality of indigenous tribes from the Amazon. The music they produced was a complex and mesmerizing tapestry that vividly evoked Brazilian landscapes and simultaneously reached out to the world beyond its borders. The product of extensive research, this compilation is a unique introduction to this visionary music and features many fresh discoveries in a country well-trodden by record diggers. It gathers tracks from obscure albums that have for too long been neglected by even the most avid collectors of Brazilian music. It includes now highly sought after music by Andréa Daltro, Maria Rita, and Fernando Falcão, as well as unknown gems like those of Cinema, Carlinhos Santos, and Anno Luz. This is an essential release that reveals a broader spectrum of Brazilian music, striking a unique sonic signature that is full of innovation, experimentation, and beauty. Compiled by John Gómez and featuring extensive liner notes, Outro Tempo showcases this overlooked corner in Brazils rich music history for the first time. Also features: Piry Reis, Nando Carneiro, Os Mulheres Negras, Bené Fonteles, Priscilla Ermel, Carioca, Marco Bosco, and Luhli E Lucina." - Music From Memory.

"60s garage rock and jerk out of South Africa, Angola, Mozambique, Ghana, Madagascar and Cameroun! Yes guys, theres still much more to offer! If you were raving on Cazumbi Vol. 1, wait to hear the second. I swear, its much, MUCH better than the first! Absolutely stunning collection of 21 tracks, ranging from the more sophisticatedly produced (but hell, WILD!!!!) fuzzy garage sounds of South African groups like The Gonks, Birds of a Feather, Them or The Invaders, to the primitive raw garage, beat and jerk of Tall Emma & His Skipper (from Ghana with their killer Hammatan), Vum Vum and Os Rocks from Angola, Les Kilts from Cameroun, Les Safari and Les Jokers from Madagascar, and a good number of Mozambique combos. This brilliant release comes with great artwork, and an insert is included with photos and information on some of the groups and the African 60s rock scene. Limited release of 500 papersleeve CDs. Fully remastered sound." -Nosmoke
