Title: Space Chanteys
Format: LP
Label: Fringes
Country: Italy
Price: $22.00
"Matt Valentine creates, has created, and will continue to create from inside of a continuum that unspools from a source that is also so distant as to be invisible. Mysterious Translucence is not just the name of his shoe. Space Chanteys is really the first honest solo album that Matt Valentine has created. There have been others that are somewhat like it, or are related to it, in shape, or in style, but they are not it. This alone is it. It is Space Chanteys. Recorded live, back in October 100, the ensemble here has run through all of Matts pockets on many occasions. Some were/are part of the Tower Recordings collective. Others are associated with the MVEE Medicine Show. Each of them has fingered keys and touched lint that has deep and private resonance in the Valentinian flow. They take a deep collective breath here and release it slowly, like a sigh trapped in the highest tower of Greasers Palace. And its a gasser. Those enlightened people who are aware of his recordings, have a tendency to think of Matts music as part of the American volk tradition. And, indeed, a portion of it does reside there. But as with so many of the interesting inventions inside out-culture currency, the soul of this volk music emerged from synchretic collisions between psychedelic rock and avant garde jazz and country blues and trance-drone-minimalism as well as a primitive form of volk-proper. The material on Space Chanteys is beautiful in its fracture. Its fissures phosphoresce in the darkness w/ an unearthly radiance: glow-in-the-dark teeth set into the gums of eternity.." -Byron Coley. Also includes PG Six, Dean Roberts, Samara Lubelski (Hall Of Fame), Erika Elder and Tim Barnes. Edition of 650 copies on 220 gram vinyl.

"This rocket opens with a brief intro Lunette which set the mood for the 18 minutes 4et piece Variations on out of nowhere piece (from a Frank Lowe LP title), here sinister whispers/voices, hypnotic guitar playing and spare but propulsive long distance drumming, merge together wonderfully to create a music soaked with weird vibes and whichd go on and on eternally.... zun zun zu ha zu... The other side open with another short Lunette #2 which give space to the central 15 minute piece Ring of Yod, a meditative space cosmic raga trilogy in trio (guitar, tambura, electronics)... Moon Lotus brightly illuminate the end of the creek.... Let the creek to creation transport you in a vibrant place where youd complete bath yourself in rich spectrasounds..." - QBICO.

Title: Blazing Grace
Format: LP
Label: Time-Lag
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"It can take a lot for a single album to stand out from a discography as epic as MVs, but by the time youre given this one a single spin it becomes very clear that a new apex has been reached. This long in the works solo outing somehow merges nearly every one of the finest elements of past releases into a perfectly executed singular vision. Theres an intensely personal, exposed element to the song writing here, increasingly hinted at in the recent past but never so purely focused. Likewise the music itself has a honed edge thats both unharnessed yet precise, drifting just enough, but never too far. A newborn musical trajectory wrapped in MVs most loving & elaborate “spectrasound” production to date, creating a sonic pallet that simply ripples with nuance, tone, and a seemingly bottomless depth of detail. All together, a start-to-finish trip thats instantly memorable & hummable, subtly intimate yet cosmically blasted. Restrained yet fully rocking, with that unmistakable burnt, ragged edge. Blazing grace indeed-- distinctly a solo vibe, but without any shortage of help on board. Guests include : Erika Elder, P.G. Six, MICK Flower, Spanish Wolfman, Jeremy Earl, J. Mascis, Meg Baird, Pete Nolan, Muskox, Carson Arnold, and Rongoose, all adding to the decidedly rich, earthy, and futuristic sound. Endless guitars of every texture, lush mellotron, vibrating harmonies, star-dust synth, hazed rhythms, eastern drones, and far more, all fluidly entwined -- packaged in a beautiful full color laminated 60s style heavy tip-on cover, with large insert. Edition of 500 copies." - Time-Lag.

Title: P.K. Dick
Format: 7
Label: Time-Lag
Country: USA
Price: $8.50
"A-side is a dusty gem of a solo track, unearthed on a mysterious Space Shanties-era tape reel last New Years day, and now presented to the masses after quite a time lapse. A prime slice seeped in the lo-fi analog glow of Tower Recordings, with MV spilling some lucid lyrics & smokey vibes. B-side is a more recent counterpoint, a bit more bent on the rural/spectra solo wandering of his most zoned & serene acoustic/electric back porch pickings. Sweet vibrations, folks... packaged in a two tone heavy textured art paper cover, with silver/blue/black offset printing & silver/blue labels. Edition of 550 copies." - Time Lag

Title: What I Became
Format: LP
Label: Woodsist
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"If string theory is correct, this is approximately the thirteenth album MATT VALENTINE has released that definitely shouldnt be filed under a group name (TOWER RECORDINGS, BUMMER ROAD, GOLDEN ROAD, etc.). On the other hand, if string theory is correct, this might also be his 11,000th album. The truth, one suspects, is somewhere in between. Since bedding down in southern Vermont at the dawn of the century, MV has been as cussedly prolific as anyone. The gout of LPs, cassettes, CDRs, singles and 10-inches emerging from Maximum Arousal Farm has dwarfed the output of everyone cept maybe Sunburned or Thurston. Regardless, there can never be enough MV LPs in the world, and What I Became is a beaut. Most of it is as solo as Satan, apart from percussionist JEREMY EARL (of WOODS fame), whose presence is sometimes felt more than heard. ERIKA "EE" ELDER and MIKE "MUSKOX" SMITH also pop up on a track, but the general approach here is as naked-and-loaded as the soul of Icepick Slim. As usual, MVs tunes and procedures beggar easy generification. Elements of deep forest psychedelia brush against Crazy Horse guitar / vocal flourishes that explode to reveal volk-based form mayhem at its hickiest."-Byron Coley Limited to 500 copies with full-color jackets and inserts.
