Title: Kerstmis 1980
Format: LP
Label: Ultra Eczema
Country: Belgium
Price: $29.00
“The strangest lp in the UE Antwerpian archival series so far! Recorded on christmas eve in 1980 by visual artist and general lune Bruneau, who is illegal about everywhere on this planet, and his pals Tom Van den Broek, Ewald Van Dyck and Jan De Pauw, at the time all creating trouble in the Antwerp scene around the legendary punk/glam basement Cinderellas Ballroom, Café Tom Tom (and Radio Centraal), Café De Mok and so on! The same puddle Ze Barbies were swimming in! B.P. was rather ambitious in theory, though besides a cassette recording, a stamp, one radio show on Radio Centraal and a list of members (which comes with this lp!) nothing really happened, B.P. was short for a lot of name combinations, such as "Bedrukt Papier" (translated "Printed Paper"), which should have been a fanzine made by these members (which never happened), nobody seems to remember other names, though the original logo also seemed to be the original logo of the British oil and gas multinational, what a coincidence! Musically this could be a mix of a background tape of Ghedalia Tazartez, and a Trip Hop band recorded by Heath Moerland from the other room of where the actual band is fucking around with self glued record loops, early scratching, and beer bottles! limited to only 150 copies, comes in a full color silkscreened fold open cover with archival photos of all members, a member list and a small UE sticker.” - Ultra Eczema.

Artist: BABA COMMANDANT AND THE MANDINGO BAND
Title: Juguya
Format: LP
Label: Sublime Frequencies
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"Baba Commandant and the Mandingo Band are a contemporary group from Burkina Faso. Coming from Bobo-Dioulasso, the group is steeped in the Mandingue musical traditions of their ancestral legacy. The enigmatic lead singer Baba Commandant (Mamadou Sanou) is an original and eccentric character who is well respected in the Burkinabe musical community. A sort of punk Faso Dan Fani activist for traditional Mandingo music, Baba continues to redefine the boundaries between traditional and modern. In 1981, he joined the Koule Dafourou troupe as a dancer. Later, he embarked on his current musical direction as a singer, first in Dounia and then in the Afromandingo Band. His current band -- when hes not playing with the now-famous Burkinabe musician Victor Deme -- is the Mandingo Band. At present, he is a practitioner of the Afrobeat style, drawing inspiration from the golden era of Nigerian music. Fela Kuti/Africa 70 and King Sunny Ade are big influences, as is the legendary Malian growler Moussa Doumbia. Baba Commandant plays the ngoni, the instrument of the Donso (the traditional hunters in this region of Burkina Faso and Mali). His audience comprises multiple generations and strata of Burkinabe society; he accordingly adapts his repertoire to his surroundings, which range from cabaret Sundays in Bobo-Dioulasso to the sound systems of Ouagadougou. Baba Commandant and the Mandingo Band are a formidable force steeped in Ouagadougous DIY underground musical culture. Juguya is their sound. Limited edition LP housed in a Stoughton tip-on sleeve." - Sublime Frequencies.

Title: Collage

Label: Wah Wah
Country: Spain
Price: $24.00
“Reissued on vinyl for the first time, heres the second LP by Baba Yaga, After his adventure with My Solid Ground, Ingo Werner formed Baba Yaga. Named after the Slavic folklore character his new adventure seemed to be more a solo project. On this second LP Ingo Werner chose to join forces with santur, sitar, tabla player Nemat Darman, an Iranian musician who also contributed congas, cymbal, gong, timpani, drums and vibraphone, and record the whole album as a duo. Werner would play EMS, Davoli and Solina-string synthesizer, clavinet, electric piano and grand piano, besides producing the whole sessions at the Dieter Dierks studio. On this second delivery, Baba Yaga offer an intriguing mixture of krautrock electronic experimentation with improvised ethnic sounds and textures, compared by some to works by Popol Vuh, Third Ear Band,Brainticket, the early Tangerine Dream, Deuter or even Between.

Price: $24.00
“After his adventure with My Solid Ground, Ingo Werner formed Baba Yaga. Named after the Slavic folklore character his new adventure seemed to be more a solo project (he plays electric piano, piano, mellotron, synthesizer, organ, clavinet, bassoon and gong, besides being the composer of the music), but it is made with the cooperation of other musicians - most notably Bernd Weidmann who, in addition to singing and playing bass also contibuted with some lyrics. Other musicians in the recording are Joska Fiedermutz on drums, plus Winfried Schreiber and Jürgen Dyrauf on guitars. Songs on this debut album, which was originally issued in 1974 as a very limited edition on the very small Cycle label have been compared to some UK prog-rock works like those of Cressida, Aardvark, Egg,Arzachel, Fantasy or Greenslade. As the LP plays on, echoes of the Canterbury scene can be heard through some jazzy influences, and some heavy-psych and cosmic avant-garde athmospheres created by Werners intelligent use of synthesizers, are thrown in.

""Meet Me in the City" is the second single from new NYC combo THE BABIES. "Meet Me in the City" and "Somebody Else" are rollicking pop gems, pungent with sweet harmonies, raucous beats, tambourines, skyscraping guitars: the works. Summer dreams, psychic revelry, concrete heat-Babies are born! The individual Babies are no strangers to melodic transcendence, a fact to which their work in psych-pop wunderkinds WOODS and chainsaw sirens VIVIAN GIRLS will attest.

"In 2008, KEVIN MORBY moved into CASSIE RAMONEs small apartment in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn, for a few months. Morby, who plays bass in WOODS, and Ramone, who sings and plays guitar in VIVIAN GIRLS, wanted to start a band. They both missed the sweaty loft shows they used to play before their bands moved on to larger venues and longer tours. JUSTIN SULLIVAN, who had played with Ramone in BOSSY, began practicing with them on drums, and THE BABIES debuted as a three-piece in March 2009 at Dead Herring, their friends loft in Brooklyn. They played a few times before asking NATHAN STARK, formerly of BENT OUTTA SHAPE, to join on bass, and the full lineups first shows were that summer. The Babies wrote music and played shows in fits and spurts, whenever they all happened to be in town for a week. They recorded their self-titled debut album with JARVIS TAVENIERE at Rear House Studios, which doubles as Morbys home; his vocals were done in his own bedroom. (Taveniere, Morbys bandmate in Woods, has also recorded Real Estate, Vivian Girls and Woods.) The debut follows 7-inch singles on Make a Mess and Wild World.

Title: Baby Grandmothers
Format: CD
Label: Subliminal Sounds
Country: Sweden
Price: $16.00
Repressed. "Baby Grandmothers were a short-lived Swedish band, but one of the most prolific and unique psychedelic, modal, experimental power-trios to emerge out of the Scandinavian psychedelic underground scene in 1967. Although hailing from Stockholm, Sweden they only released a single in Finland, which has since become one of the most sought-after pieces of vinyl from the era. Baby Grandmothers were formed out of the legendary R&B/beat band T-Boones in the summer of 1967. T-Boones are probably best known for their "At The Club/King Of The Orient" single which is one of the best, and most collectable of the Swedish garage beat era. Guitar-wiz Kenny Håkansson joined the band in 1965 and with the group down to a trio they drifted into the psychedelic sounds of the time and in August 1967 released the single "I Want You," which definitely was the first hard-rock recording ever made in Sweden. The band was then re-christened Baby Grandmothers by the co-founder of the newly opened psychedelic club Filips, for which he needed a house-band. Filips was the legendary breeding ground for bands such as Hansson & Karlsson, Pärson Sound, as well as orgiastic all-night jams with foreign luminaries such as Jimi Hendrix and the Mothers of Invention. Baby Grandmothers also supported Jimi Hendrix on his Swedish tour in 1968 and then turned into Mecki Mark Men, who became the first Swedish rock band to tour the U.S. Founding member Kenny Håkansson went on to form the highly influential Kebnekajse, who created the Swedish electric psych-folk sound. This unique collection presents live recordings made at Filips, their impossibly rare single and a rare live recording made in Finland. Painstakingly collected and researched by Dungens guitarist Reine Fiske. 16-page booklet included." - Subliminal Sounds.

Artist: BACHI DA PIETRA
Title: Non Io
Format: CD
Label: Die Schachtel
Country: Italy
Price: $17.50
"Bachi da Pietra (The stone worms) is a two-men band whose dark and resonating music wraps around tunes of desolate candor and lyrics (in Italian) as dark and imaginative as broken love can be. A relentless drumming hovers over a huge wash of ride cymbal and a deep, plaintive voice, which is able to capture sadness, anger and yearning. The entire album is a visceral emotional journey: the dissonant blues-based songs develop around the steady drone of the singers voice, a trance-inducing vocal presence singing of grim meditations on life that are crafted and performed with disarming sincerity. Just like the mysterious and enigmatic characters that orbited their doom-laden, disturbing world, Bachi da Pietra is an unpredictable band that leaves the listeners feeling vulnerable, moved, and sometimes totally spaced-out." - Die Schachtel.

Artist: BACHMAN, DANIEL
Title: Grey-Black-Green
Format: LP
Label: Feeding Tube
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
“2015 repress on white vinyl. First vinylization of the 2011 CD-R release, with which Daniel Bachman shucked the performing name hed been using (Sacred Harp) and laid his naked ass on the line. Bachman already sounds like a wizened player here (an image that was solidified when his mug was plastered on the box for Tompkins Squares "Obscure Giants of Acoustic Guitar" trading cards), but he was actually still a babe of the Fredericksburg woods at the time this came out. Regardless, his technique is massive, and his approach to the material -- based on a color-wheel tuning system developed by the late Robbie Basho -- is intense. Recorded onto a boom-box, with a hi-fi quotient of nil, the material here reminds one of what Bill Orcutt might sound like if he decided to play in longer format time-chunks. Theres a wonderful kind of containment to the music -- suggesting deep investigation and improvisation with hermetic knowledge rather than anything constrictive -- which gives this album a sense of spirituality one rarely finds outside the New Age bin. Bachman is a master player, and the evidence of this is apparent even at this relatively early stage of his trajectory. Through constant touring and wood-sheddding, Daniels music has evolved in multiple directions over the intervening years, but Grey-Black-Green remains one of the true and unique high watermarks of his recordings. How great to have it on vinyl at long last. Includes a download code.” - Feeding Tube.

Title: Miscellaneous Ephemera and Other Bullshit
Format: LP
Label: Feeding Tube
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"First off, the cover. Lets make it clear -- this was totally Daniels idea and is based on the original art for Tony Rices California Album (Rebel SLP-1549, 1975). Why? We cannot say exactly. The album is considered to be in Rices all-time top five. But so what? Who amongst us can claim to have fully plumbed the depths of Bachmans mind? The guy is a genius and those types just have their ways. So shut up about the cover already. This album itself was released under the title Daniel Bachman by an English label -- Lancashire and Somerset -- in 2014. But copies evaporated like moms milk, so heres a sonic jug from which we can all suckle with warm ease. Miscellaneous Ephemera is an amazing record -- filled to the brim with music that extends the concept of acoustic guitar manipulation beyond the range of mere vaseline machine guns. The pieces range from disruptive scrambles and neo-Tuvan throat aktion worthy of late-period Fahey to Kabra-style ragas and the more easily-anticipated particles of primitive guitar brilliance. There is also some adult content on the second side, so radio programmers -- be alert! Bachman has been a growing force in the acoustic underground for a few years now, and this new one really rips a new hole in the side of the styles star-cluster. Join forces with it today. Or else" --Byron Coley, 2015. Edition of 500.

Title: Oh Be Joyful
Format: LP
Label: One Kind Favor
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"This is the second full length LP by steel string guitarist Daniel Bachman (who formerly recorded and performed as Sacred Harp). Though young in years, he plays with a technical facility and emotional depth equal to that of the greatest fingerstylists. His discography is already full of strong releases, but this new recording is the first Ive heard to fully capture the intimate beauty that many have witnessed in his live acoustic performances across the country. Authenticity has been a issue that has plagued folk music for much of the 20th century and these days anyone can pick up a style that was previously known only to a few mountainfolk. While Bachmans playing is surely reminiscent of the spiritual searching sound of Robbie Basho, and indeed the spectre of Fahey looms large, he is no Johnny-come-lately. The distinct sound you will hear on this record is inspired by the traditions and lore unique to Fredericksberg, Virginia, also the hometown of Jack Rose (may God watch over his soul). Limited edition one time pressing of 500 copies." -One Kind Favor.

Price: $27.00
“60s garage-psych moody monster! Out of The Bachs was originally released in 1968 as a private pressing of 150 copies; its one of the rarest USA 60s garage/teenbeat albums ever. The band consisted of five young kids from Chicago, regulars at local teen dances, who decided to release an album for their fans before splitting up. Recorded and mixed in just ten hours at a makeshift studio, Out of The Bachs offers 12 amazing self-penned songs with a sound ahead of its time. Pure teenage-angst vocals, crashing Rickenbackers, fuzz outbursts, killer moody tracks... Sadly, all previous reissues of the album failed to capture the true sound of the original, until the Time-Lag label reissued it in 2011 with remastered sound from a pristine original vinyl copy. This reissue uses the same audio master as the out-of-print Time-Lag edition. File next to The Rising Storm, The Fantastic Dee-Jays, The Savages.

Includes CD containing the album plus Baciamibartalis 1984 three-song EP The Mournful Gloom." - Spittle. "The magic touch of this unforgettable icon of romantic and decadent post-punk music is back to pluck strings in the depths of our souls, a jubilation of the most powerful vibrational dynamics, melodic/chromatic inventions and perspective layers . . . whether they are the dreamlike fugues of Baciamibartali or the neon-lighted electronics of Winter Light. . . . Although the “twilight of hope” and the fragility of the human condition are clearly inspirations to the author, on the other hand the stings of disenchantment look for shelter by embracing an impossible dream, one that dies away among the lights and shades of these atemporal melodies. Glimpses of the Pre-Raphaelite aesthetics that torture shrouds of sublime harmonies and chisel electric marbles of an epic memory, burning in a never-ending chant of passion. This reissue is nothing short of a must." - Aldo Chimenti.

Format: LP
Label: Milvia Son
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Milvia Son is positively stoked to present the first full-length LP by Back Magic, following a cassette and a couple of limited run lathe cuts on Nick Hoffmans esteemed Pilgrim Talk label. While the line-up and sonics have varied over Back Magics brief history, the relative constants thus far are Hair EXP on guitar and vocals, and Terror Trans on drums. This LP features just the core duo doing what they do very well indeed … which occasionally sounds like a proto-embryonic version of The Great Society if they replaced Grace with some chanting monks, and other times sounds like a couple burned-out monks getting their rocks on after stumbling across an amp and some drums. The album is very much in the vein of their “Dream Lover” cassette, described by Byron Coley as a “curiously strong” recording of “a guitar, a drum, and a lung playing skeletal miniatures from inside a ghost garage”, and by Ed Pinsent as embodying “a shrill plangency that makes you want to cry and shudder at the same time.” Like many haunted recordings, this one finishes with a question mark that will leave you wondering what the hell just happened. Limited to 250 copies with cover and insert art by Nick Hoffman, beautifully silk-screened by Alan Sherry. Get your copy or be damned to a lifetime of chronic lumbago." -Milvia Son.

"New lower pricing. Available for the first time since its release twenty years ago, The Backdoor Men were ultimate mid-1980s jangly garage rock/pop/folk from Sweden. Decades before bands like the Hives, Sweden was already well known for its amazing modern beat-psych through compatriot and influential bands such as the Creeps, Crimson Shadows, The Stomachmouths and of course the sharpest of them all; the Backdoor Men. The mighty Backdoor Men originally started up as the mod-band Pow in 1982 but when the amazing vocalist Robert Jelinek, who was also in the Creeps, joined forces with Hans Ingemansson (guitar & vocals), Stefan Nilsson (bass), and Ismail Samie (drums), they changed their name to The Backdoor Men, playing covers of the Chocolate Watch Band, Music Machine and Standells. The rest is garage rock history. For the first time you can hear all of their recordings and read their exciting story. This album contains lots of unreleased bonus tracks, a groovy booklet with extensive liner notes giving an uncensored, first-hand peak as to what really happened, plus lots of photos.

Artist: BACZKOWSKI, STEVE/CHRIS CORSANO/PAUL FLAHERTY
Title: The Dull Blade
Format: LP
Label: Feeding Tube
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"More than a decade since their first (and last) trio album, Dim Bulb (2005), Buffalo Steve, Chris Corsano and Paul Flaherty are back on the attack. The three recorded as part of a larger ensemble on the Open Mouth LP, Wrong Number (2014), but they have a certain way of creating focused trio dynamics that makes babies talk in tongues and old men drool. The line-up is a bit unorthodox -- two saxes (one a goddamn baritone) and drums. You might almost be tempted to call the format European. But itd be a canard to try and place this album in the Euro free music tradition. I mean, yeah, there is some massive outsider brawling here. Buckets of wind and clumps of tubs all double twisted up, as Fred Blassie used to say. But the fire never refrains from flaming as jazz-qua-jazz, which places it a lot more squarely in the American tradition than actual squares would have you believe. These three are clearly savages, which is a far cry from people impersonating savages, if you catch my drift. Beyond that, there is an ineffably jazzoid heft to the music here. Both Steve and Paul are playing in a distinctly post-Ayler jetstream. The freedom of their runs maintains that strangely (perhaps even imaginary or projective) American connection to bar-walking R&B maniacs -- something that seems to lie at the bottom of our countrys hornic subconscious. Which is not to say individual moments on this record couldnt have come from the FMP catalog, but theres a red hot holism here that will brand most asses with the stars & stripes. The Dull Blade has a strange undercurrent of swing here as well. Largely provided by Mr. Corsanos driving full kit approach, the most outward-moving passages (often those involving the inner and outer freak registers of the horns) get corralled back into more clearly terrestrial and genuinely moving. Its a great goddamn record. Once again these guys manage to defy odds and expectations, creating music that is as fully-charged and beautiful as it is warped." - Byron Coley, 2017. Edition of 400.

"Permanent had the opportunity to put Raw Powder out on wax and squandered it. Well never forgive ourselves. BAD DRUGS is one of Chicagos absolute best noise rock bands, not just of now, of all time. And with the storied history of noisy rock bands formed by the oppressive nature of the Windy City, thats saying something. Raw Powder. Its an absolutely punishing, brutal, and gnarly noise rock record through and through. Other bands in the genre sometimes hide their lack of ability behind noise, which is fine and dandy cuz were all about non-musicians making a racket, but this is NOT the case with Bad Drugs. Each of these dudes is totally adept at their respective instruments. So adept that even the thick layer of noise that resides between phrases cant mask the skill residing in these dudes skulls. Each and every single goddamn one of these songs R-I-P. Oh yeah, and the vinyl totally glows in the dark. Each side ends in an obnoxious locked groove. The art is fucking amazing, just like the rest of the Rotted Tooth releases. And its limited to 300 hand-numbered copies. And YOU SHOULD BUY IT to avoid a life of in regret like us Permanent idiots (for not putting this record out ourselves)." -Rotted Tooth

Title: Live At Timber Cove
Format: LP
Label: Milvia Son
Country: USA
Price: $9.00
"The third full length album by The Grass, following 2007s Invigorating Scent LP and the Birth/Death CDR from 2006. Timber Cove is the name of a Pacific Coast outlook off Highway 1, near Jenner, north of Gualala. The mysterious duos synthesizers, pedals, guitars and amps were taken to the foot of Benny Bufanos legendary sculpture, The Expanding Universe, an 80-foot tall missile-shaped cement monument decorated in mosaic with images of benevolent aliens. Thereafter, the equipment -- and the audience -- was turned on. The first track on the LP, mastered in glorious mono at 45 rpm for maximum impact, transposes Bufanos vision into sound, an analog anthem from deep space designed to inspire sperm whales and giant squid alike to lay down their weapons and fight no more. The small audience (of European tourists?) appears to have been moved. The entirety of side B (33 rpm, wide stereo) consists of DMT Elf Blues. Amidst a disquieting drone accompanied by a languid guitar, the damaged laughter of a clown skull is irregularly audible until ultimately vanquished by plucked strings wafting in from the East. All that remains is a pair of felt boots, a cicada, a whipporwill, and a distant echo. Is this the first businessmans trip to end up in a regional wilderness? We doubt it, but only because weve previously woken in places where we never expected to be unconscious. 300 copies, color sleeves, color insert, priced for the Great Recession." - Milvia Son.

"The second Bad Drumlin Grass record is the first vinyl release on Milvia Son Records. Way back in July of 2006, Sensei Rebel chose the bands schizophrenic inaugural CDR (Birth/Afterbirth) as his Ambient Pick of the Week. Forsaking the drone (at least temporarily), Bad Drumlin Grass presents two solid sides of junk n roll instrumental freakouts that careen into the void like cigarette cherries dropping into the fake beard of a paranoid neo-folkie where, like Sonny Bono, they just sit there and *burn*. These are not the lost Hams rehearsals tapes. Imagine Richard Thompson and Garth Hudson rehearsing for 10,000 hours and touring with This Heat. This record is the exact opposite of that, except for being recorded live without overdubs. 300 copies for the world." -Milvia Son.

LUKAS. "(This is Why We Cant Have) Nice Things" bores its way directly into the pleasure center of your brain and attempts to blow it to fucking pieces. It latches onto your subconscious and becomes symbiotic with your fear. You will put the stone in your mouth. Your teeth will break on it!

Title: Evolutions
Format: 10"
Label: Cacophonic
Country: UK
Price: $21.00
“2014 release. Pioneering electroacoustic and tape music by Henk Badings assisted by Dick Raaijmakers (Kid Baltan) from the Hanover Opera Ballet production of Evolutions, choreographed by Yvonne Georgi. Premiering in Hannover in 1958, then in Rome and Vienna in the following year, the ballet Evolutions (Evolutionen) by Yvonne Georgi was the second of three groundbreaking collaborations with Henk Badings (bookended by Cain and Abel aka Elektronisches Ballet in 1957 and Die Frau Von Andros in 1960) in which electronic tape music combined with avant-garde choreography. This pairing contributed to a vibrant global movement connecting experimental dance artists with electroacoustic and musique concrète musicians, manifested in the partnerships of choreographer Maurice Béjart with musician Pierre Henry and choreographer George Balanchine with musician Remi Gassmann, as well as Alwin Nikolais groundbreaking work in choreography and sound. Assisted by Raaijmakers, a fellow Dutch electronic music pioneer and a Philips sound laboratory technician, Badings, an Indonesian-born musician of Dutch parents, would by the late 50s begin to expand his successful career as a composer of "romantic modernism" and develop electronic, polytonal, and microtonal music that instantly attracted Georgi to his unique brand of musique concrète. As a key exponent of forward-thinking and conceptual dance, Georgi devised a narrative based on the evolution of technology and its agonizing effects on mankind. Garnering mixed opinions amongst the classical ballet cognoscenti in 1959, the projects of Georgi and Badings were viewed as part concert, part installation due to the radical sonic shifts and the physical deployment of large electronic speakers to replace the otherwise acoustic orchestral accompaniment. Prepared with the entire apparatus of the studio at Philips physics laboratory in Eindhoven before being committed to master tapes, Evolutions not only stretched the perceptions of modern ballet aficionados but also stretched the technical boundaries of electronic music at one of its most exciting and vibrant junctures in musical history.” - Cacophonic.

Title: Evolutions, Contrasts & Electronic Music
Format: LP
Label: Aurora Rising
Country: Germany
Price: $24.00
"Aurora Rising present a reissue of Henk Badings and Dick Raaijmakerss Evolutions, Contrasts & Electronic Music, originally released in 1958 under the title Electronic Music and released again in 1968 as Evolution & Contrasts. The 1968 release Evolution & Contrasts contains the same recordings as the 1958 Electronic Music album. Henk Badings and Dick Raaijmakers were composers, arrangers, conductors, and pioneers in the field of electronic music. They created electronic soundscapes with a rather creepy atmosphere. This stuff is different to the 50s avant-garde classics and the more pop-oriented electronic albums of the same period. Badingss "Capriccio For Violin And Two Sound Tracks" can be seen as a strange dialogue with sloping melodies between the violin and unidentifiable electronic devices that gives you goosebumps. It has a rather picturesque approach and could be used for early horror flicks as accompanying music for the horrifying scenes. The amazing fact is that this music still sounds fresh and exciting even nearly six decades after its initial release. "Genese", on the other hand, is a lengthy composition of chirping, bubbling, and droning sounds, swelling and ebbing away in regular intervals. Cosmic music of the highest order. Some sections also feel like an intergalactic information transfer signal of unknown origin. All-in-all a very spooky and haunting affair. Its interesting how electronic music already went back in the late 50s while most people consider the late 60s and early 70s as the heydays for electronic experiments and cosmic sounds. Well, this reissue allows listeners to experience the pioneers of this genre, and they really do it well. Raaijmakers even had a hand in writing groovy dance compositions when collaborating with Tom Dissevelt. He used the pseudonym Kid Baltan on these occasions. Anyway, this is quite a different thing. This is dark and utterly strange. "Contrasts" by Raaijmakers is a mixture between funny swirling sounds that make you think of a quick tempered discussion between little androids and menacing drones in the back that soon gets interrupted by single blows and hisses with frightening howls far in the back. This is definitely an album for true enthusiasts of strange electronic sounds who even consider early Tangerine Dream as fluffy pop music. Includes five bonus tracks." - Aurora Rising.

Label: American Dust
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"Recorded in the early 70s in her home on a reel-to-reel tape deck, SIBYLLE BAIERs Colour Green paints intimate portraits of lifes sad and fragile beauty.  Baier and her music appeared in the 1973 Wim Wenders film Alice in the Cities, but her recordings were never released, and only shared with family and friends. Its said that "Remember the Day," the first song she ever wrote, was inspired by a road trip to the Alps with a friend during a dark period in her youth. Upon return, Baier pulled out her reel-to-reel and preserved these intimate thoughts and feelings on tape. Though she eventually chose family and motherhood over a music career, the bare, hushed folk songs on Colour Green, first released in 2006, have elevated her to the realm of revered cult performers such as Vashti Bunyan, Nico and Bridget St. John. After an extremely limited initial pressing (copies of which have fetched large sums via online auction sites), Colour Green is finally available again on vinyl.

"This was a cassette not officially released on Incus or any other label. It was sold by Derek Bailey at concerts. For a short period in 2010 original copies were sold via the Incus website. The back story: In 1983 Derek Bailey was due to visit Japan for a concert tour and decided to take with him, for sale at the concerts, a cassette recorded live in Milwaukee. Approximately 500 cassettes were prepared and dispatched to the promoter in Japan but, in the event, the tour fell through and the cassettes were returned to England. On arriving to collect the two boxes containing the cassettes from the Post Office, Derek found that they were badly damaged and, having to pay to regain them, decided to collect only one of the parcels. The salvageable cassettes - number not known, but probably around 150 - were subsequently sold at other live dates. All were produced on a light-grey plastic cassette body with Concert in Milwaukee, Derek Bailey plus date of concert, printed in light-blue directly on the cassette body. The cassette came with an insert with the number DBC2 (no number on cassette itself)." -Incus

"The godfather of improvisational guitar, Derek Baileys praises have been sung far and wide by everyone from Pat Metheny to Karlheinz Stockhausen for having revolutionized the way the instrument was played over the last half of the twentieth century. Although fans are often frustrated by the low-fidelity of his earlier recordings, this 1975 LP (originally released on the Italian avant-garde label, Cramps), stands out in that regard. Recorded in an actual studio (unlike most of his early work) in Milan, for this session Bailey was apparently asked by his Italian hosts to define improvisation. He then proceeded to give his answer in the form of these fourteen tracks (eight performed with electric guitar, five with six-string acoustic guitar, and one with a 19-string acoustic guitar). 180 gram vinyl reissue with printed inner sleeve." -Mirumir.

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

Whilst working on The John Baker Tapes compilation for Trunk Records, producer Alan Gubby unearthed several reels of music & sound effects from the 1960s BBC TV series Vendetta -- a mafia themed cop thriller starring Italian actor Stelio Canelli (Barbarella,Django, Planet Of The Vampires). The theme tune for the show was composed by John Barry whilst Baker produced all the incidental music. He created brilliant, tense, rhythmic & unhinged James Bond style themes for the show between 1966 & 1968, featuring radiophonic beats, twanging bass lines & screaming jazz solos. Available for the 1st time ever, Bakers soundtrack for Vendetta displays his skill in fusing groovy tape loops, ambient drones & bass textures with real instruments.

Title: Early Recordings
Format: LP
Label: Medical
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"Medical Records presents a hand-picked selection of the early recordings of Germanys Bal Paré. The band started as Jeanette und das Land Z in 1981 with a 7 on Konkurrenz, which included two covers: Raumpatrouille (soundtrack from a weird science fiction TV series) and 60s Eurovision Grand Prix number one hit, Poupe de cire, poupe de son by France Gall. The 7 became an underground hit. Members were Kirsten Klemm (vocals), Jan T. Krahn (synthesizer) and Matthias Schuster (synthesizer, beatbox). The band changed their name to Bal Paré and begin recording independently. In addition, drummer Jürgen Weiss joined the band. The band name was based on the song Es war beim Bal Pare from the German chansonette Hildegard Knef, who was a musical influence along with bands like Kraftwerk, Depeche Mode, Erasure, Yazoo, etc. The first Bal Paré LP, Hamburg-Paris-Catania was released in 1982 on Konkurrenz. The members performed under witty pseudonyms for that record. Since they had a large fan base in Sweden, the second release (Metamorphose) came out in Stockholm on the Krautrock label. Around this time, a new member, Manfred Asmus, joined on keyboards and programming and Jan T. Krahn and Jürgen Weiss left the band. There were many tracks produced during this time that ended up unreleased. Much of the material from this selection of tracks was culled from unreleased sessions from the 80s with Manfred Asmus (and subsequently also collected on the Best Of CD-only release in 1996 on Tatra Records). Due recent demand, Matthias Schuster has reformed Bal Paré and has released several new records with much success. The original two LPs are long out of print and demand very high prices on the collectors market. This is the first time this collection has been reissued on vinyl. The opening track Rien is a perfect display of what synth pop is modeled after. Rich lead synth textures, male/female interplayed vocals, and electronic percussion. Though the entire record flows with ease and captivates the listener from beginning to end, other standout tracks include Palais dAmour, Die Idioten, and Meilleur Du Monde. This collection is absolutely crucial for fans of early new wave such as Deux, Moderne, Performance and other similar acts of the genre. The tracks have been lovingly restored by Matthias Schuster. Presented on high-quality 180-gram heavyweight vinyl." - Medical.

Ball was formed by the mysterious S. Yrék Ball, previously known as a strong force in the occult underground of Northern Europes secret societies. He has now decided to dedicate his will to music and the good life outside of the covens and black magic orders. Backed by his two older brothers, they form a fierce and fearsome power trio. These guys arent very talkative but say their main interests are - apart from banging on their instruments - booze, girls, horror comics, and monster model kits. The guys have finally been released from probation, so hopefully they will be able to do some live shows. Anyways, its a good thing they are still together and have recorded this - nothing short of a miracle considering the circumstances. " - Horny.

"You all may not be familiar with the project, but its William Sabiston of (part-time) Axolotl fame.. Dude is a WILD percussionist whos collaborated with tons of folks, but most recently in a group BULBS.. Im not even sure how to describe this release....... I suppose "freedom techno," a ficticious genre imagined by Roope Eronen, would be some sort of applicable term. William weavs all sorts of percussive sounds; bells, electronic drum pads, synth and acoustic drums into a complex whirl of pulses and clicks that will occasionally congeal into abstract loops, minimalist techno riffs, dub-zones or some sort of cohearance, before whatever beat hes imagined crashes in on itself... Those familiar with Williams solo track on the Axolotl CDR, "Oranur," will have some idea what to expect.. but then, Ive been listening to this thing for months and I still dont know whats happening when I listen to this thing.

Price: $36.00
"First time ever vinyl release of two extraordinary documents, dated 1971, by the legendary Balletto di Bronzo. On the Road to YS, is a landmark in Balletto di Bronzos history, because it is the demo recording made by the band in 1971 at Phonogram studios Milan, featuring the embryonic versions of two songs that would later be merged into YS (Introduzione and Secondo Incontro), with English vocals, and arrangements that are quite different than the final tracks. However, these demos will convince Phonogram to offer the band a record deal. In 1972 they released YS. The rest is history. Taken from master tapes, and remastered by Gianni Leone and Nicola di Gia in 2010. Also featuring a bonus track: an unreleased live version of La tua casa comoda." - AMS.

"On their debut 12 EP for Ever/Never Records, New York Citys Ballroom explode out of the gate with a whirlwind fury. Anchored by a tornado of vicious snare drum thwacks and excoriating guitars, "Corridor" is a threat made manifest by singer Eric Cecils warnings to "not let the sight disturb ya."
Ballroom are a powerful ensemble assembled from scattered remnants of other notable bands. Cecil (who also plays guitar) did time in Chicago punk standout Busy Signals, and has featured in numerous NYC bands since his relocation. The other axe-slinger, Kristian Brenchley, is a founding member of long-running scum rockers Woman, and also lays down the bottom end in Ever/Never labelmates Degreaser. Ballroom low-end is provided by Home Blitz Theresa Smith, while the drums are beaten into submission by Steven Fisher, leader of Wilful Boys and Dozers.
On "Dismal Sun," the band locks down on the central riff as guitar leads and frantic snare rolls keep pace with Cecils thousand-yard stare vocals. "Ill Keep Coming Back" points to a key influence -- the sun-scorched blacktop rumble of prime Scientists, Australias sultans of swamp. Smith doesnt let up on the gas, pushing Brenchley and Cecil into the realms of the unhinged.
Ballrooms debut features no mellow songs, sappy ballads or moments of false sincerity. "Nails Head" stands out for its approach to rock n roll as controlled demolition. This song will bite your hand off if you get too close. "Burnin Billy" could be a feedtime cut, but theres also echoes of the Gun Club and past Crypt Records powerhouses like The Beguiled. The epic final track, "Anti-Hole," coalesces all of Ballrooms excess energy into diesel fumes and takes it for a ride out into the open range, traversing peaks and valleys and mountains and digging for something deeper. Ballroom doesnt so much ride off into the sunset as reach up into the sky and pull it down into the dirt." - Ever/Never.

Artist: BANABILA, MICHEL
Title: Early Works: Things Popping Up from the Past
Format: LP
Label: Bureau B
Country: Germany
Price: $23.00
"Numerous threads run through the music of sound artist, composer, and producer Michel Banabila (born 1961), whose contemporary work ranges from adventurous electronic cross-breeding of chamber instrumentation through industrial rhythmic sampling and outwardbound modular synthesis to deeply elegiac drones. This set collects the Dutch artists instrumental 1980s work -- beautiful minimal loop-based electronica, classical-influenced pieces, and ambient drone music -- documenting his early years with material originally released as cassettes, vinyl EPs, and limited CDs. Banabilas piano echoes with a disarming simplicity, its atmospheric gestures bringing to mind the proto-minimalism of Erik Satie. The melody could easily be an additional hundred years old -- except for the fact that the refined patterning is something that likely only could have been pursued in light of the music of Michael Nyman and Philip Glass. The equipment on which this music was made, notably an early sampler, was limited in various ways, key among them the relatively circumspect set of capabilities, especially in terms of memory storage, and the lack of received performance techniques. The equipment was simple and it was new, and neither factor limited Banabilas ambition; on the contrary, the tools concentrated his imagination. If the classical pieces represent the Old World as framed by the new, then the more recognizably "electronic" work here is likewise most at home in a fictional place, an idealized zone. That zone is a quiet neighborhood in the Fourth World, to borrow Jon Hassells terminology, one in which digital tools render something that is, for all its technological dependency, ultimately a form of folk music -- an otherworldly folk music for another time. Fidgety percussion plays amid a fierce but restrained guitar line (there are echoes of Laurie Anderson and Adrian Belew). An ambiguous and elongated drone, thick with subliminal activity, beautiful in its toxic anxiety, suggests dire activity on the horizon. And yet the horizon wasnt dire. Quite the contrary; what was ahead for Banabila was a long string of releases, a healthy and well-documented career in which so many of these individual threads have been provided time and space to have entire records dedicated to their pursuit. This album of archival works documents the continuity inherent in Banabilas music. It is a map in musical form, tracing a path that crisscrosses back and forth between the Old World and the Next." - Bureau B.

Banana Head nods to the wedding ballad, schmatlz indulged to the point of confusion, eagerness and imprudence, a distant relative way too old to be that hammered bleeding an oldie-but-a-goodie into monotone. Rosemary Krust draws out the essentials of guitar-drums-keys, abstracts, flattens them into hissing post-pop atmospherics. Paired up like two Moby Dicks of dopeness." -Goaty

Country: Germany
Price: $77.00
Limited edition of 333. Includes hand-numbered certificate. "A box-release covering the Band Of Holy Joys cassette released artistic output from 1983 to 1986, split on 3 records. Band Of Holy Joy were formed in the summer of 1983 when Johny and Max found a synthesizer in the cellar of the squatted New Cross Gate house they were living in. They started messing about on this synth and started writing songs on it. The songs however were very messy and the discovery of an old plastic harmonium in a local junk shop only added to the chaos. They brought in Brett Turnbull to bring a sense of order to the noise they were creating. Brett brought along Martine Thoquenne with him and the noise in the cellar started becoming very interesting indeed. A person who is much forgotten but quite instrumental in what went on was George Lovell. John Jenkins, a photographer who was around the house, was persuaded to trade his camera for a mouth organ, tambourine and various other instruments. The Band Of Holy Joy, a completed entity, started to create strange sounds and songs began to emerge. Cultural interests at this time were 8 and 35mm film, Bertol Brecht stage play and the electronic disco sounds that could be heard and bought uptown. Subjects that fired their imaginations were media scare stories, prescription medications, institutional living, big cities, bad glamor and self-preservation in vulnerable situations. There was an affinity and shared living space with the constructivist outfit Test Dept who took Band Of Holy Joy out on tour with them resulting in very early performances in Manchester, Sheffield and Retford. When they returned to London they entered the studio and began to record and assemble tracks to go alongside the porta studio recordings, cut ups, and collages they were creating at home. They also played with Einsturzende Neubauten around this time. The band was interested in the emerging cassette culture of the day. The first cassette was Favourite Fairytales For Juvenile Delinquents which was released in 1983 More Favourite Fairytales was recorded on a four track portastudio which was released in 1984. The band would often make and play their own instruments as well as make their own films. A special post-punk pre-acid house, a creatively perfect time to be young and full of noise, word and image in London." - Vinyl-On-Demand.

Each artist has used the others music as source material to create a sumptuous feast for all discerning and adventurous audio palettes. There is no B-side, only the A-side and Side 1.The Band Of Pain side exclusively uses material from the NWW album A Sucked Orange (DPROM 101CD, 1990). It has been processed like a high street burger, with little meat of the original left. The result is a superb piece of musique concrète that sounds like it belongs in another century and another universe. The Nurse With Wound side uses various Band Of Pain pieces that are battered and deep-fried beyond recognition. The results were sprinkled with an array of exotic spices, additional sauce, and chemically enhanced additives. The final outcome is a dense, creamy, rich slice of vintage Nurse With Wound -- with a twist.” - Dirter Promotions.

2000 release. From the liner notes by Tim Perkis: "Ellen Bands work... lies in the path it takes, leading one from listening to recordings of natural sounds to, before one knows it, being immersed in a dense and complex field of sound which, though built completely from natural elements, is something quite transcendent and otherworldly. Bands music seduces us into perceiving the sensuous properties of familiar sounds by building dense and complex sound environments out of these elements. By sheer sensory density we are brought face-to-face with the physical, vibrational reality of sounds, bringing us to a state of attention to what we perhaps have lazily ignored through over-familiarity. The ever-active yet somehow static nature of some of these pieces, as they reach very rich sonic densities, start opening like rich noise sources, providing a field for auditory illusion and hallucination. Its as if our perceptual apparatus, brought to a high state of awareness by the odd combination of familiarity and extreme density, begins providing its own guesses about the meaning of it all -- aural hallucinations." From the liner notes by Brenda Hutchinson: "At the end of each of Ellen Bands pieces, we return to the “real world” as it was heard in the beginning. The sounds are now full of memories with the residue of where they have been. Its hard to hear a simple, familiar sound again without imagining what its “other life” is like." - XI.

For reasons unknowable, certain places in certain eras become hotbeds of music, fertile in their growth and flowering of musical talent. Thailand in the 1970s was such a place, and Dao Bandon is one of the enduring greats of that era. Born in the farm country of the Isan region, Bandon came from a poor family and was a monk during his teens, two great influences which shaped him, with his farm roots grounding the earthy heart of his lyrics, and his years of monastic chanting lending a unique resonance to his singing. After an apprenticeship with some of the greats of Thai music, Dao Bandon began to enjoy success leading his own band. The songs here, released in the 1970s, showcase the infectiously joyful Bandon groove, his mellifluous voice, and his captivating melodic sense. His lyrics deal with sex, love, marijuana, and the struggles of the poor, but no matter what he sings about, a sense of good cheer is always evident.

Title: Journey to the Light
Format: LP
Label: Students of Decay
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Recorded in Northern California in 1984 and released in a micro edition by the Creative Sound imprint in January of the following year, MARK BANNINGs Journey to the Light is a true lost gem of private issue New Age music, an impossible-to-find album that is more spoken about than heard and deserves to be recognized alongside established classics of the genre. Incorporating processed electric guitar, zither, voice and field recordings, it is unabashedly beautiful music-two side-long pieces that feel as though they may have always existed, hanging in the air like a morning fog over the Pacific. As archetypal to the genre as Bannings compositions might appear to be, Bannings music has a seriousness and intensity that was absent from much of the New Age scene as it existed in the early 80s. The albums first piece, "Everlasting Moments," charts a course between the weblike guitar cycles of Manuel Gottsching and the buoyant minimalism of Terry Riley. "A Sea of Glass" constructs itself similarly but navigates even calmer waters, providing a sensuous tapestry of ever-evolving guitar drones and radiant zither filigree. These heady, oddly prescient recordings were uncovered by New Age historian / figurehead DOUGLAS MCGOWAN (Yoga Records) and will appeal as much to fans of drone and ambient music as to those enamored with labyrinthine annals of American private press records, New Age as such, or with the recent renaissance of synthesizer-based experimental music. Remastered for presence and clarity by JAMES PLOTKIN, this special reissue is the definitive edition of Bannings transportive masterwork. Banning was recently featured on Light in the Attics genre-defining, critically lauded compilation I Am the Center." - Students of Decay.

Actually nothing: Banque Allemande (also known as dbZwoVier) have spent the last 5 years avoiding Berlins rock scene, chosing to play subway cars, a hamburger grill, and the like. They recorded a couple albums worth of fantastic songs, but never spread them around. What was posted on myspace got lost in the flood of bands there. They lurk in the shadows no longer. Banque Allemande has a relentlessness that reminds me of the Gordons and Rema Rema, the thuggish charm of Feedtime, and some 1-2-3-4 yucks of i dunno, name some late 70s euro punk outfit-but thats me hearing them.

Title: Willst du Chinese sein musst du die ekligen Sachen essen
Format: LP
Label: S-S
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"A couple years ago, this fine label released the debut album by a mysterious Berlin band called Banque Allemande. Trapped in a city more known for dance music than two chord rock n roll, Banque Allemandes live shows were restricted to a few underground spaces and Berlins subway system. They recorded for themselves but outside of a small circle of friends they were unknowns. Well, now comes album number two, Willst du Chinese sein musst du die ekligen Sachen essen. Like their first, Willst du Chinese mixes marathon riffage with shorter blasts, centering on a two chord fung set to a galloping beat; a sound that brings to mind the Gordons, early Leather Nun, and even Big Black. However, it sounds like our German pals have been listening to a little Velvet Underground too. Like Eddy Current Suppression Ring, Banque Allemande take VUs pop rock side and punk it up a bit. Oh, the Banques also spare a moment or two for getting heavy. This one is a little more diverse than their first album but fans will be pleased, and those new to the band will be searching for the debut. Limited to 400 copies." - S-S.

Title: Cambodian Liberation Songs
Format: LP
Label: Akuphone
Country: USA
Price: $30.00
"Cambodian Liberation Songs is a painful call from forgotten resistance fighters – it is a captivating and moving record. It works as a witness of Cambodian history, bringing to the world the breathless voice of the members of the resistance from the Banteay Ampil Band. Released in 1983, Cambodian Liberation Songs is a mysterious and overwhelming record. As a genuine piece of history, this “call from sorrow and fierce passion” makes use of a whole range of Cambodian music, from folk to rock, to express sufferings and complaints. On April 17, 1975, the Cambodian people, already crushed under national and international conflicts, were commanded by force to forget their own past – it was “annuum 0” of the Khmer Rouge calendar. Four years of genocide would follow before the start of a war opposing the Vietnamese army to the Khmers Rouges. Resistance units engaged in the conflict against what they considered as a Vietnamese invasion. This record, produced by a resistance group, was given the reference number “KHMER 001”. It was undoubtedly the first record composed and performed by non-Khmer Cambodians after the tragic events of 1975-79. The Banteay Ampil Band was created in the refugee camp of Ampil, at the border with Thailand. Musicians and female singers, who had hidden their talents during the genocide, then gathered around the composer and violinist Oum Dara to engage in a new struggle: the resistance. Oum Dara, who had been a composer for Sin Sisamouth and Ros Srey Sothea, among others, adapted several of his creations. It is therefore with a poignant charm that the Banteay Ampil Band binds together the golden age of Khmer music from the 1960s with the traditional repertoire and the context of their daily struggles. Violin, guitar and voices match together to produce melancholic and intense songs – the stirring tone of grief expressed by these resisters. The band went to Singapore to record Cambodian Liberation Songs, the only record of the “Khmer Peoples National Liberation Front”. - Akuphone.

Artist: BARAKA (LEROI JONES) & THE SUN RA MYTH-SCIENCE ARKESTRA, AMIRI
Title: A Black Mass
Format: CD
Label: Sonboy
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Repress, originally released in 2000. Surprise reissue of the most infamous and difficult to procure Sun Ra artifact; originally issued on Amiri Baraka (then LeRoi Jones)s Jihad label (home of the original Sunnys Time Now by Sunny Murray as well). This is the first release on the DC-based Sonboy label officially sanctioned by Baraka (and mastered from the original tapes that have been sitting in his basement all along). Other unreleased sessions from the Jihad library of tapes are still rumored to follow this release. Originally issued in 1968, A Black Mass was personally distributed by Baraka via a network of radical Black literature bookstores and was not commonly found in the channels that records of the time moved in. As a result, it has enjoyed a mystical status for the better part of its 30+ year existence, and many hard-core Ra completists have never seen a copy. A strange and revolutionary play by Baraka, with musical interludes by the Myth-Science Orchestra. Very, very historic. "The play A Black Mass was written in Harlem in 1965, much of it probably at my desk at The Black Arts Repertory Theater School at West 130th Street and Lenox (now Malcolm X. Blvd.). It was first performed at the RKO Proctors Theater, Newark as a companion piece to J-E-L-L-O, a satire on the Jack Benny show where Rochester turns militant. The reason it was Newark is because late in 1965, I decided to walk away from the BARTS because with the mounting internal strife, the phenomenon of diminishing returns had set in so disruptively that the vision of bringing Black Art into the community and creating what we were later to understand as Cultural Revolution could no longer succeed at that venue. Black Mass shows the heavy influence of the Nation of Islam even though, after Malcolms murder, I became alienated from that Nation, essentially as a means of registering my allegiance to Malcolm. Even the Jacoub story I had gotten from Malcolm when he was still more directly motivated by Elijah Muhammads teachings. Sun Ra was one of the most consistent and supportive artists associated with the BARTS. He was there several days a week, teaching all who would listen. At any rate, when I conceived of doing Black Mass to music, Ra was the only musician in my mind. Not just because of the otherworldliness of the tale, but the sensuous outness I knew Ra, with his Myth-Science Arkestra, would bring, which I felt would give a material life to the text. The work was recorded in The Spirit House, on the first floor theater we had created by tearing down the walls of my rented one-family house, just as we had done at The Black Arts. With Sylvia Robinson (Amina Baraka, a Newark artist who would shortly become my wife), Yusef Iman (a BARTS original), Newarks Marvin Camillo (he and Yusef are both gone now), and Barry Wynn (Amun Ankra), we tried to recreate the staged version which we had just done. And while there is something to be desired in our collaboration, the recording stands not only as a record of what The Black Arts was doing, but points I think into the future of the spoken word and the possibility of expanding what can be recorded and what kind of collaboration between word and music can come. The theme The Satellites Are Spinning is the dramatic musical mise-en-scène throughout, though close listeners will hear some of the music which characterized the Myth-Science Arkestra rising and falling through the mainly improvised music-drama. In total, the music is rich and evocative by itself. Heard with the text of The Black Mass, both connect and extend each other with a dramatic gestalt of Myth-Science music and the mythologized history deepens our emotional perception of what is being told. For me, re-heard with the benefit of study and another kind of thoughtfulness, it even projects a rationale thats more scientifically based, search-lighting some evasive facts of human history as well as projecting the premise which I have long held, that art is creation, and that we must oppose the creation of what does not need to be created." -Amiri Baraka, 9/6/99

Title: Patterns Of Consciousness
Format: Double LP
Label: Important
Country: USA
Price: $38.00
"Patterns Of Consciousness is the powerful second full-length from analog synth composer Caterina Barbieri. Gorgeous high resolution analog textures and algorithmic melodies unfold under Barbieris careful control, exploring the basic nature of sound and consciousness. These pieces are minimal in arrangement but maximal in presence asserting Barbieri as a unique voice in contemporary electronic music composition. Patterns Of Consciousness was originated by ideally infinite permutation of patterns through a disciplined and exclusive use of machinery (an indexed quad sequencer and a harmonic oscillator). By means of subtraction, addition, and jitter operations, Barbieri derives a myriad of interlocking patterns extracted from an original matrix of just few harmonic archetypes, gradually developing the potential of the reduced constellation of pitches and durations determined in advance. Pushing the limits of her monophonic instrument, Barbieri seeks out counterpoint from a single oscillator through the exclusive use of additive synthesis, fast progressions, extreme melodic jumps, and intricate delay lines. She develops an illusory counterpoint style influenced by her passion for baroque lute music, where fast arpeggios are employed to get effects of sustained chords and overcome the limits of fast decay timbres. But the highly formulaic and germinative style of these pieces is also influenced by Indian classical musics vision of sound as an agent of change and recreation. Patterns are understood as the cells of an organism or the units of a language: a limited set of signs that can be recombined to always generate new possibilities. In POC, repetition and permutation of patterns are explored as tools to reconfigure perceptions and bend emotions, approaching sound as a medium to develop and master our own perceptual art. Emerging machine intelligence, human desire of pattern detection and the understanding of music as a cognitive feedback between humans and technology are primary sources of inspiration for this work. All the compositions share a common fatalistic tension, an impossible running, a restless rush - somewhat nervous somewhat ecstatic - to grasp a meaning out of fragments. Every piece in POC is conceived as a generative entity, a dynamic and living being able to develop its own organic laws, whose inner potential of growth and change is embedded in the initial instructions of the sequencer. Music produced by Caterina Barbieri between September 2015 and January 2016. Mixed at EMS (Elektronmusikstudion) in Stockholm. RIYL: Alessandro Cortini, Eleh."

"Caterina Barbieri on Patterns Of Consciousness: "A pattern creates a certain state of consciousness. Once it is created, the pattern stands as an object exactly like the sound waves which generate it. We are at the same time inside and outside of the object. While being it, we observe it. Over time we become familiar with the inner structure of the pattern. We decode its gravitational centres, where our psychomotor attention is attracted, where everything seems to be drawn. When a change in the pattern occurs it causes a perturbation of the previously established field of forces. This causes consciousness to fracture, potentially unfolding layers of perceptions we werent aware of or simply suggesting that we access only a fraction of our psychic potential. The layered nature of consciousness and the relativity of perception are some of the biggest secrets we can experience through sound." - Important.

Title: Vertical
Format: Cass
Label: Cassauna
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
2016 repress. "Vertical is Caterina Barbieris debut album and it was composed for vocals and Buchla 200 modular synthesizer. Vertical takes a meditative approach to primary waveforms and the polyrhythm of harmonics, stretching the boundaries between drone, minimalism and techno in multichannel systems. This minimalistic focus arises from the polyrhythmic and stratigraphic potential of voltage-controlled sequencers. Synthesis, drone and immersive listening are three fundamental conditions to enhance an advanced auditory art, not based on extrinsic links but solely built on the experience of the spectrum, able to develop our very limited ability of perceiving the vertical domain of music, involving us in a holistic way. Caterina Barbieri (1990) is a composer and performer of electro-acoustic music. Mostly interested in modular synthesis, three-dimensional spatialization and psychoacoustic aural sculpture, her music arises from a meditative approach to primary waveforms and the polyrhythm of harmonics. She received a degree in classical guitar and electro-acoustic music at the conservatory of Bologna, Italy (plus an exchange program at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm, Sweden) with a thesis about time, space and spectrum in vertical music. Shes currently attending a Bachelor in Literature and shes active as an audiovisual artist, acousmatic composer and guitarist. Her work has been commissioned and performed in festivals and venues of experimental music." - Cassauna.

Title: Peri
Format: LP + CD
Label: 3Lobed
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"In early 2008, Bardo Pond and Three Lobed Recordings teamed up to assemble Batholith, a collection of tracks that were close to the bands heart but for various reasons had never been released. The result was an extremely cohesive and vital statement that was positively received by both old and new Bardo Pond fans. During the compilation of Batholith, the band had to agonize over the wealth of material that they were sitting on in constructing the ultimate tracklisting -- there were too many good songs. The band approached this problem by structuring two sister albums, Batholith and Peri, each possessing their own musical themes and each fully capable of standing independent from the other. For this reason, Peri is every bit as potent as its predecessor. The meticulous sequencing of Peris five tracks provides a classic Bardo Pond experience. While the initial description of the material might lead one to think that these tracks are outtakes or cutting-room floor type material, neither conclusion could be further from the truth. The band is quite excited to finally see all of the material on Peri venture into the public. For example, Chicken Gun will be recognizable to the bands longtime fans. A former live staple from 1996 through 1998 (even making an appearance in the bands set at the first Terrastock festival), it is a propulsive and fiery rocker every bit as monumental as some of the bands classics such as lb. and Tommy Gun Angel. The Path is a subtle number featuring floating flute work from Isobel Sollenberger. The album-closing Silver Pavilion is the sort of meditative psychedelia that has been Bardo Ponds calling card over their lengthy career. The track dates to the bands extremely fertile, yet barely documented, period between the release of Dilate and On the Ellipse. ;Silver Pavilions slow, enveloping build properly see the listener to the door and is reminiscent of such flawless Bardo closing tracks as RM, Aldrin and Night Of Frogs. Peri is pressed on 180g RTI vinyl and is housed within heavy old-style one-pocket Stoughton gatefold jackets bearing new collage work from Michael Gibbons." -3Lobed

"Previously unreleased UK demo album from 1969. The loudest band from Hull in the 60s, Bare Sole played raw, in-your-face psychedelic hard rock and heavy blues. Bare Soles brief existence at the tail-end of the 1960s reflected the realistic trappings of their geographical situation. Musical icons such as Mick Ronson and Robert Palmer would eventually rise to fame outside of their native Hull, but Bare Sole sadly only managed a handful of out-of-town gigs and a tour of US air bases in Germany. As it was, their entire existence lasted just over a year, but at least their inspired musical legacy has survived thanks to a 1969 recording session held at Fairview Studios. Assisted by writer and producer Keith Herd and galvanized by an enthusiastic local poultry farmer, Bare Sole captured their primitive garage mannerisms in one fiery recording session. Aside from Deccas rejection of their demo tape, Bare Sole continued playing alongside acts such as Family, Status Quo, The Move, and Small Faces, but the inevitable decision to quit came in 1970 and their story came to an end. Flash represents Bare Soles entire recorded history, taken from the master tapes of their 1969 recording session. Their seductive garage romp boasts explosive doses of fuzz, wah-wah, and Farfisa organ, a sound that recalls an earlier and more primitive sound, but a sound that also may have unwittingly sealed their fate. Master tape sound. Detailed liner notes. Recommended for fans of Blue Cheer, Iron Claw, Stack Waddy." - Sommor.

"Lost in the Glare is Barn Owls second album for Thrill Jockey, and follows quickly on the heels of their acclaimed 12" EP Shadowland.

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

With waves of guitar soaring over liquid synthesizers tones, Barn Owl combine lush, melancholic serenity with cacophonous, deconstructed guitar to exhibit a visceral meeting of light and dark. Cyclical themes were explored heavily: mantric guitar processions, swelling bass waves, and fluttering tremolo hypnotism. Shadowland was recorded by Phil Manley (Trans Am) in San Francisco. For the overall sound of the EP, the band focused on using monolithic stacks of tube amps and sent guitars and synthesizers alike through them and utilized intense amounts of stereo delay." -Thrill Jockey

Title: The Conjurer
Format: LP
Label: Root Strata
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"The Conjurer is the latest offering by Bay Area duo BARN OWL. This new long player finds EVAN CAMINITI and JON PORRAS finally (by way of an actual recording studio) documenting something that is a bit closer to their very heavy live sets, with expanded peaks of white light distortion and enormous valleys of bottom end. Each side opens with a brief funeral dirge to set the mood, a precession of bare bones drum beats and bell like guitar statements that bridge the gap to the wider open spaces of the almost side long "Across The Desert Of Ash" and "Ancient Of Days." It may seem obvious, or even a little overwrought, but it has to be said that these guys really do evoke all kinds of cinematic drama with their music. Apocalyptic westerns, bleak melodramas, mother nature fever dreams, it all seems to come to mind amid the evening guitar passages, incantations, flute tones, and finally, the solo piano that emerges lost among the electric mayhem to close the album. Considering the amount of terrain, The Conjurer is far from being scattered or rushed sounding. The record as a whole moves at a crafted even rhythm, slowly merging from one scene of violence to the next of almost silent recovery, then back up the mountain again. An edition of 500 LPs, half colored deep red, half black. Cover etching by Evan Caminiti." -Root Strata

"Barn Owl has always specialized in devotional darkness, pushing desert rock into previously unexplored, murky territories. V marks a shift in approach for the duo of Jon Porras and Evan Caminiti. The pair augmented their arsenal of guitars and effects with an array of electronics, vastly expanding the albums sounds and textures. Special attention was given to implied rhythms nestled within dense slow building environments, giving the album a rhythmic presence, albeit one that is buried beneath intricate layers.

The guitars here sound delicate and beautiful, but it remains bleak and empty, if you enjoyed their LP on Not Not Fun, then this is a real treat. Tom Carters 16-minute Train Kept follows pretty damn nicely from his recent Shots At Infinity releases on Important. A far cry from his more psychedelic folk experimentations, here he slashes and riffs like many a legend, and maybe, just maybe, its a slight tribute to a certain band, too?

"Contemporary group from Providence on ESP-Disk! "Charles, Barnacleds new full-length, and first outing for ESP-Disk, is a rollicking, propulsive offering featuring the band in some of its most intricate formations. This deftly arranged record follows Barnacled as it tightens itself into high corners, only to purposely fall down, find new ground, and pick itself back up again. This work is highly playful, even at its most intense -- and it does get intense, with saxophone battles surging over electronics and highly distorted accordion fire offerings. Then all of a sudden the sound drops out, save for a plaintive lone bassoon call, or static from a short-wave radio that sounds soothing by comparison. Intertwining rhythms and melody lines then revolve around a pulse that creates a new frame of reference while also complicating it. This music invites deep listening, and rewards the curious. Often it is simply mesmerizing, essentially what adventurous minds have come to expect from the legendary ESP-Disk oeuvre." -ESP-Disk

Title: Weld
Format: LP
Label: Blackest Ever Black
Country: UK
Price: $25.00
“Faith Coloccia and Alex Barnett return to Blackest Ever Black with their second duo album, Weld; working with synthesizers, effected vocals, raw electrical noise, field recordings, EVP techniques, tape manipulation, and drum machines to create a music at once lucid and mystic. Its songs embody various experiential philosophies and objectives: searching for the sacred in the forgotten and supposedly useless; exploring the meaning of "natural"; listening for the pulse of the ancient; using technology both to materialize memory and to dream a folklore for a future age. Coloccia and Barnetts ambition is apparent early on in the stately, medievalist keyboard/choral poetics of "Truth Teller," moving through the agitated wormhole techno of "Dreamsnake," to the white light-emitting, near-symphonic plainchant of "Healer." The zero-hour synth pulsations of "Blight" are first interrupted, then engulfed, by an extra-terrestrial broadcast of piercing bell and glass-tones; "AM Horizon" is pitched bewitchingly between Prophet-5 pulp futurism and earthbound, atavistic dread; the baroque harmonic sequence of "Agate Cross" disintegrates at its very climax, cooling and dissipating into a deep star-field of pure tone. "Ash Grove" and "Rose Eye" are exhilarating exercises in contemporary musique concrète; complex timbral constructs in which Coloccias disembodied glossolalia, swooping strings, and other nameless sonic spectra conspire to evoke extra-dimensional space and the highest spiritual drama. Weld speaks its own distinctive dream-language, but it comes highly recommend to anyone enamored of the brittle sci-fi synth-scapes in Caroline Ks Now Wait for Last Year, the amorphous electronics of Beatriz Ferreyras work, Conrad Schnitzlers more gothic moments, and even the gravest metaphysical reckonings of a Stockhausen or a Rózmann.” - Blackest Ever Black.

Title: Carnets

Label: Glistening Examples
Country: USA
Price: $25.00
"Just as 2014s widely lauded Hidden Tapes marked a turn from saxophone improvisation to an embrace of what the Potlatch label referred to as "music for speakers" or, more elegantly, "sound diffusion," Carnets is not only another leap forward, but could easily be considered Marc Barons masterpiece. Carnets is a dynamic interplay of degraded magnetic tape and unsettlingly normal everyday recordings dating back to Barons childhood, showcasing Barons deftness in crafting compositions that leave the listener with more questions than answers. Attempts to pin down his methods are forestalled at every turn by the abstract yet suggestive nature of the pieces. Personal memories become a platform for a series of inscrutable, elegantly arranged compositions. Barons misused tapes carry evocative resonances that linger hauntingly in the mind of the listener, begging to be heard again. This record is the analog debut for Marc Baron, and his hand-constructed audio works sound completely alive on this vinyl pressing mastered by Jason Lescalleet. Each slab of 150-gram vinyl comes in a special black poly-lined dust sleeve inside a 300-gsm white-on-white art board, all lovingly protected by a polyvinyl bag. The front cover bears a striking photograph of a sculpture by French artist Loïc Blairon, something very intimate and personal for Marc Baron. This album is truly something very special." - Glistening Examples.

"Chau, Flacos lost album, was an urgent idea that, somehow, Hamlet and I put into his tight list of things to do and unresolved emotions stemming from his sudden decision to go to Europe in 1972. We considered that Jorge Flaco Barral, one of the most charismatic and different artists of the emerging movement of rock, blues and related Montevideano of the early seventies, had to leave a personal, personal legacy, beyond his previous collective works with Opus Alfa and Days Of Blues (Dias De Blues). We knew many of his songs were hidden, except couple of them had appeared publicly in few occasions. Most of the songs show very personal subtlety and lyrical sensitivity that the Flaco had already demonstrated with his previous groups. It was about Flaco recording the songs that he wanted to leave the way he considered to be right. In the end, what remained was a unique document of a different and original artist, an unfinished product that lacked time but what is a reflection of the urgencies we all lived in those days." - Esteban Leivas.

Title: Aberrant Lens
Format: CD
Label: Palace of Lights
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Marc Barrecas seventh solo album for Palace of Lights extends his work with a broader and deeper palette of synthesized and sampled sound, including sources as diverse as prepared guitars, pianos, Indonesian metallophones and glass harmonica. The music of Aberrant Lens employs long MIDI delays, synced MIDI processing via MAX for Live and extreme warping of disparate looped sound sources driven into entirely new states. The results are new, coherent aural structures: music that questions traditional definitions of ambient and electronic forms. And, to the educated ear, within this search for innovation and experimentation Aberrant Lens reveals many of Barrecas earliest influences. Even when integrated in thoroughly non-retro compositions, the hints of homage to Cluster and the first Fripp & Eno releases inhabit these twelve new settings. Marc Barreca has been creating and performing electronic music since the mid-1970s. His 1980 album, Twilight, was one of the earliest releases on Palace of Lights. His cassette-era album Music Works for Industry is being reissued by the RVNG spin-off Freedom To Spend, and his early cassette work is included in the upcoming VOD box set American Cassette Culture, which also features Marcs early electronic music group Young Scientist. His work is included in the collection of The British Library." - Palace of Lights.

Label: Palace of Lights
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Released in 2015. The impulse to invent and realize new music, new forms and a broader comprehension of sound has proven to be a permanent aspect of Marc Barrecas work. From childhood music lessons, to tape and electronic experimentation with his group Young Scientist, to becoming an early participant in cassette culture and the independent movement, Marc has developed a large body of work that moves with and ahead of the changes that music has undergone in the past four decades. With Beneath The Mirrored Surface, Marc continues his quest to create deep and shifting aural spaces by merging the abstract rhythmic warmth of early analog synthesis with the complexity and timbral beauty of acoustic instruments and natural sound. Barreca extracted and reshaped rhythms and textures from field recordings, decades-old world folk recordings and acoustic instrument loops. These sources were first converted into MIDI data using Ableton Live and then transformed and manipulated with Max/MSP. Hundreds of these source clips were then blended and arranged with layered and looped digital synthesizer and sampler tracks. The result is a dense, rich world of refracted light and shifting shadow. Mastered by Taylor Deupree." - Palace of Lights.

"Limited edition of 200. Marc Barreca is an American synthesist and multi-instrumentalist and one of the pioneers of American cassette culture. Inspired by Brian Eno and the ambient school, he began recording his own music in the mid-70s. By 1980 he already recorded three tapes: In a Foreign Land (1977), Raw Fish and Green Tea (1979/80), and Currents (1979/80) -- all three only released and distributed via Eurock in an extremely low quantity. In 1980 he released his first LP, Twilight, on K. Leimers Palace of Lights label; a tape called Music Works for Industry would follow three years later on Palace of Lights, and another, The Sleeper Wakes, three years later on Jeff Greinkes Intrepid label. Besides performing together with James Husted and Roland Barker as the Seattle-based electronic music group Young Scientist in the late 1970s and early 1980s, he was also a member of K. Leimers studio group Savant. Barreca uses digital and analog synthesizers, digital samplers, environmental field recordings, and computer-processed audio loops to create multi-layered audio compositions. He employs similar techniques to those used in his audio recordings to create multilayered abstract visual compositions from digital photos and video source material. This LP includes tracks from Raw Fish and Green Tea (1979/80), Currents (1979/80), Music Works for Industry (1983), and In a Foreign Land (1977).” - Vinyl-On-Demand.

The cubicle wall separated Julianna and Ikue to their respective seated work stations, while stationary web cams captured the musicians at work/play and became interactive projections auto-manipulated by video artist Erik Mika, illuminating this exercise in simulated engagement. Each of Julianna and Ikues improvised performances on October 29th, 2010, were cut live to vinyl via portable lathe. Julianna and Ikue met a second time three weeks later at White Columns, November 16th 2010.

Format: Cass

Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"Adam Basanta is a Montréal-based sound artist and experimental music composer. His sound installations investigate intersections between sound reproduction, consumer technologies, and the activity of listening. To create A Room Listening to Itself, the artist produced sound exclusively through amplification techniques that make audible the physical relationships between microphones and reclaimed speaker cones within a gallerys surrounding acoustic environment. In this work, eight iconic SM58 microphones and eight reclaimed speaker cones are dispersed throughout the gallery space, arranged in a manner that produces complex computer-controlled feedback and recursive amplification networks. Using these acoustic phenomena, the gallery space is turned into a giant resonator that amplifies acoustic space as a product of spatial relationships. Custom-built software algorithms constantly recalibrate the room to ever-changing acoustic situations, aiming for a sonic equilibrium that remains out of reach. The result is an ever-changing spatial composition encompassing ambient passages, resonant chords, and rhythmic activities -- created solely using feedback -- through which gallery visitors can navigate. Finally, a mention should be made that the album was recorded live at the Center for Contemporary Arts, Santa Fe, NM, in August 2015." - Cassauna.

Caim in Bird Form is gritty, while stilted beats crawl on I Found You, leaving tonal wreckage in its wake. Bishop ups the ante with the bleak futurism of 64 Bummer -- synths float skyward blacking out the sun underneath a veil of heavy bass making for one of the albums best moments, along with the caustic sonics of the title-track. And then, just when the darkness gets out of hand, the circus comes to town in the form of Ultra-Misted to massage your ears. Features gorgeous artwork by Savwo, cut to vinyl at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin." - Digitalis

Title: Oats
Format: LP
Label: Alter
Country: UK
Price: $24.00
"Basic House is the solo electronics project of Stephen Bishop, a mainstay of the DIY scene in the UKs North East and the brain behind the label Opal Tapes. Bishop works with equipment both rudimentary and highly technical which become aligned together without bias to create a singular sound that focuses on decay, stagnation and apathy towards clichés within the current climate of electronic music. Oats is his new full-length record with six deep compositions woven together to create seamless transitions between them. "AR II" opens the record with fragile and haunted electronics before developing into something almost melodic with an imposing 4/4 kick. "Child Confession" follows with dead electronic hums, whispered samples and a sluggish half-speed techno thud which gives way to a collage of cruddy noise and scalpel-sharp bursts of clatter and a crude non-rhythmic bass pulse before ending in the buzzing maelstrom of "Interiors," which is equal parts Florian Hecker and Andy Stott at his most visceral. "Est Oan" begins the second half of the record ominously with slightly absurd farmyard groans that eventually melt into hypnotic machine music. The industrial lurch of "B.G. Feathers" is the closest Bishop comes on this side to hitting anything resembling a groove and instead evokes the grinding power of Maurizio Bianchis best 80s material. Mastered by Stephen Bishop with vinyl cut by Grammy Greg at Masterpiece. Photography by Traianos Pakioufakis." - Alter.

Title: Divertissment
Format: LP
Label: Important
Country: USA
Price: $24.00
"Divertissement is the third collaborative full-length from minimalist composer William Basinski and sound artist Richard Chartier. The duo utilizes electronics, piano, tape loops, and short-wave radio to evoke a dense atmosphere suggesting hundreds of years of history rising up from the depths of a reverberating cathedral. Subtle, buried, and intense murmurs of melody morph through this deeply consuming and slowly evolving composition in two parts. William Basinski is a classically trained musician and composer who employs obsolete technology and analog tape loops to create haunting, melancholy soundscapes that explore the temporal nature of life and resound with the reverberations of memory and the mystery of time. His epic four-disc masterwork The Disintegration Loops was chosen by Pitchfork Media as one of the top 50 albums of 2004; upon its reissue in 2012, Pitchfork awarded it a score of 10 and the title of best reissue of the year. Installations and films made in collaboration with artist and filmmaker James Elaine have been presented in festivals and museums internationally, and his concerts are presented to sold-out crowds around the world. Basinski was chosen by Antony Hegarty to create music for Robert Wilsons 2011 opera The Life and Death of Marina Abramovic. Maxim Mostons orchestral transcriptions of The Disintegration Loops have been performed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Queen Elizabeth Hall, and the Swiss festival La Bâtie. Richard Chartier (b. 1971), sound and installation artist, is considered one of the key figures in the current of reductionist electronic sound art that has been termed both "microsound" and neo-modernist. Chartiers minimalist digital work explores the interrelationships between the spatial nature of sound, silence, focus, perception, and the act of listening itself. Chartiers work has been presented internationally, including at the 2002 Whitney Biennial, and he has performed his work live across Europe, Japan, Australia, and North America at digital art and electronic music festivals and exhibits. In 2000 he formed the record label LINE and has since curated its continuing documentation of compositional and installation work by international sound artists and composers exploring the aesthetics of contemporary and digital minimalism. In 2010, Chartier was awarded a Smithsonian Institution Artist Research Fellowship to explore the National Museum of American Historys collection of 19th-century acoustic apparatus for scientific demonstration." - Important.

Title: Shortwavemusic

Label: 2062
Country: USA
Price: $13.50
Re-issue after 10 years (first issue on CD), originally released in limited edition LP in 1997 on Noton (now Raster-Noton). Full length CD with bonus track not on original LP. "The works on Shortwavemusic resulted from a series of experiments in 1982 using lo-fi technology to extract sounds from the airwaves and weave them into musical tapestries. Using two reel-to-reel decks from the 60s, a radio and a shortwave radio, Basinski recorded samples of music from the radio, edited the tape into loops of varying lengths, and slowed them down. These themes were then layered together in real time to an accompaniment of randomly shifting shortwave radio static. The themes explored were often brief excerpts [3 or 4 notes] from muzak-type string versions of American popular standards. By manipulating these themes and mixing them with an existing symphony of electronic information, Basinski has created a series of glacial, atmospheric aural landscapes for the listener to inhabit. The music is timeless and compelling - a remarkably original experimental music album." -2062.

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

Price: $27.00
"Another excellent work from the archives of American composer William Basinski (who is also responsible for one of the most beautiful and moving series in the field of experimental music: the four Disintegration Loops I-IV CDs released on his own 2062 label). This 2CD is a joint release with David Tibets (Current 93) own Durtro label. It comes in a 4 panel digisleeve." William Basinski about this work: Variations: A Movement In Chrome Primitive was created in 1981 using piano tape loops, which were played randomly against themselves creating feedback loops. By cloning small cells of melody and then breeding them randomly, new sounds were formed. These new sounds move in and out of the original cells, creating complex crystalline structures: new life forms not unlike cities for example, which the original cells occupy, moving in and out of one another in surprising variations. The equipment I used to record these pieces was very primitive and my recording technique preposterously amatuerish at that time, yet what occurred in these youthful experiments compelled me to continue learning and growing as a composer." - Die Stadt.

Title: Live NYC
Format: LP
Label: Feeding Tube
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"This is the third LP to feature the exquisite improvising duo, Marcia Bassett and Samara Lubelski. And as great as the first two were (on Kye and Golden Lab (ROWF 047LP, 2015), respectively), Live NYC is even better. It elegantly shows just how much brain damage you can do using only a guitar and a violin. The pair have deep deep roots in the East Coast sub-underground. Marcias solo projects and work with groups (Un, Double Leopards, Hototogisu, GHQ, Zaika, etc.) has been exploding minds since the mid 90s. The same is true for Samara, except her history reaches even further back, with non-solo-aktion including bands like Tower Recordings, Hall of Fame, Chelsea Light Moving, Metabolismus, and too many more to name. But neither of them has really destroyed on the pure level they manage to sustain with this duo. The two sets were recorded on different nights, at different venues, and their sound is as variated as could be. The first side, recorded by Bob Bellerue at Knockabout Center, is a tale of twinned and lightly fuzzed tones, twirling and blending in the air like a lost track from Heldons Its Always Rock & Roll (1975) (or maybe a Fripp & Eno radio broadcast from 1974). The threads of sound absolutely phosphoresce. Its an incredible mix of motion, stillness and power all wrapped up in a psychedelic diaper. The other side, recorded by Kevin Reilly at Trans Pecos sounds more like some crazy BBC Radio Workshop soundtrack to a Peter Cushing science fiction tragedy. The feel is pure outer space, with all the vast emptiness and glittering promise that implies. Im having a hell of a hard time figuring out which approach I like better. But theyre both incredible sonic shards. And the silkscreened cover art is pretty amazing in its own right. Hard to think of what more you could ask for. Except maybe a sandwich." -Byron Coley, 2017.

Title: Blue As An Orange
Format: LP
Label: Morphine
Country: Italy
Price: $20.00
"French composer and multi-instrumentalist Pierre Bastien delivers another entry in Morphines increasingly diverse catalog. Active since the mid-70s, Bastien is best known for building automated orchestras. His previous album, Machinations, was released on Aphex Twins Rephlex label in 2012 (REPH 215CD). For this work, Bastien recycled components of his Silent Motors live set and assembled mechanical organisms -- using amplified Meccano parts, motors, fans, rattles, paper, and nails -- to generate rhythmic scaffolding. Live instrumentals, created with prepared trumpets, African kundi harp, Javanese rabab, sanza, electric harpsichord, bass, drums, and gongs, were then superimposed on top. But for all their haptic mechanics, the assembled works on Blue As An Orange -- spanning jungled ambience to yellow jazz grooves -- are surprisingly delicate and nuanced, and generously laced with human warmth. As an installation artist, Bastien also captures shifting patterns of light and spatial texture in sound. This LP takes its name from Paul Éluards poem "La terre est bleue," and offers a fresh symbiosis of speculative anthropology and old-world jazz. Produced by Rabih Beaini; mastered by Neel; designed by Tankboys; original cover art by Nathalie du Pasquier." - Morphine.

And that voice belongs to Janina Angel Bath, who is that rare breed of magician -- a sonic high priestess who resonates with her place in the spotlight as if it were her own personal ziggurat. Time bends under the trance of her musical spell; from the swell of nomadic chants to flights of fantasy lore to ancient cries of goddess invocation -- she effortlessly radiates...with unequivocal grace, passion and mysticism; illuminating scenic tours not only thru the effervescent haze of the subconscious mind, but also spiraling aural trips upon whirling astral spheres." -Joe Niem

Label: Weird Forest
Country: USA
Price: $5.50
"Its true of Bathing Druid, as its probably true of all major proverbs, 80-syllable titles of old-fashioned royalty and a good deal of e.e. cummings later poetry: it all started with a Madlibs-derivative word game. Despite the unbelievable weight of its results, the game is surprisingly basic. It requires three players, each of whom independently chooses one word to fill in a sentence, the structure of which is always the same from round to round (What is a (noun) but an (adjective) (noun)?). When the sentence is filled in with sufficiently vague, timeless words, the game can conjure some profound questions. In fact, if you read all of the obscure, sometimes omitted footnotes to the texts of the ancient philosophers, you will find one consistent source from which knowledge has been universally drawn since the dawn of time: The Sentence Game. (Modern technology has brought about the height of the games productivity, through a widespread experiment, being conducted in zoos everywhere: for years, chimpanzees have been arbitrarily pontificating, through machines designed to offer random words at the press of a button.) As previously mentioned, it was through this game that Bathing Druid got its name (the result of the fated round was, What is the midwest but a bathing druid?). Philosophical doors swung wide open when first this question was asked, and Bathing Druid like Brigadoon descended on the Earth -- an apparition, both quick to enchant and to disappear. Luckily, those who stumbled upon the band in its brief window of being need not wait 100 years for its next appearance. This 7" record is the only known artyfact of Bathing Druid. All songs were created within one week, and recorded in one day. May the Beltane Loofah wash you clean and make you new." -Weird Forest

Two pieces are composed of BPM machine recordings; the remaining five are rhythms and melodies commonly heard in religious rituals and provincial festivals using traditional Japanese instruments. This seems to have been a natural reaction for Batoh, considering these rituals were quite often carried out to appease gods thought to cause epidemics and disasters--for instance, the famous Gion and Aoi festivals held in Kyoto both originated as a purification ritual addressing the gods that bring about calamity upon the people. The BPM recordings are the furthest incursion Batoh has made into the deep space and mystery of the human condition. The acoustic recordings are the purest expressions of his traditional folk influence that he has released in over twenty years of music-making, a deep and soulful expression intended to calm and aid in the healing of all around him.

In addition, field recordings done by Batoh are in the mix -- birds, seashore, winds on a bluff, industrial noise, metro, mountains, etc. The two works are fundamentally different: A Ghost From The Darkened Sea being an earthy collection of folk-songs; Kikaokubeshi composed almost entirely of a dreamy ambience." - Drag City

"Helena Espvall and Masaki Batoh are known to open-eared music listeners for their collaborations with other artists -- artists with names such as Ghost, Espers, Damon & Naomi, Fursaxa, Tom Rapp, Lukas Ligeti, Bert Jansch, among many others. By collaborating with each other, theyve made one of the most beautiful recordings either one of them has yet participated in. They first met at a festival in the United States in 2006. Batoh presented Helena with a handmade bamboo instrument; short on spare celli, she gave him a copy of her solo CD. Afterwards, they stayed in touch. At some point Helena suggested an improvised musical collaboration. Batoh wrote back and said: Actually Im too busy now to think about music... if my idols Moondog, Henry Cowell or Toru Takemitsu wanted me, Ill refuse their orders. Several weeks later, he had a change of heart. He contacted Helena and said that he felt they should record not improvisations only, but songs as well. Helena made a demo of some Scandinavian folk songs that she remembered in her spirit from growing up in northern Sweden, thinking that maybe theyd record one. The recording session was held in Tokyo over four days in December 2007. For instruments fans, this session might be a treasure. So many strings were used: 6- and 12-string guitar, banjo, cello, hurdy-gurdy, harp, contra bass, chappa Tibetan bells, Kin (Buddist metallic bowl), timpani, bass marimba, vibraphone, thunder sheet & on & on. Six of the Swedish traditional tunes were reconstructed, along with Batohs arrangement of Death Letter, a classic Son House delta blues song. Additionally, a European medieval tune was addressed in its own arrangement and expression. Zeranium, a dreamy folk tune that Batoh wrote for Damon & Naomi (they didnt use it), was re-arranged for this session as well. The improvisations were done on the last recording day, with no overdubs. Completely Free was the essential concept. For one of them, they were joined by Batohs fellow Ghosts Takuyuki Moriya (contra bass), Kazuo Ogino (piano,Celtic harp) and the santur player Mayumi Nagayoshi. The same morning, Helena had received notice that her grandmother suddenly had died, and that a dear friend had chosen to end his life. Two death letters in one day? There is great emotion reflected in the improvisations. And great depth and beauty throughout the whole Helena Espvall & Masaki Batoh album." - Drag City

"Matsuli Music continues its reissue program of rare indigenous Afro-jazz sounds from South Africa with the release of Sowetan group Batsumis self-titled debut from 1974. The reissue has been lovingly re-mastered from the original tapes. Batsumi is a masterpiece of spiritualized Afro-jazz, and a prodigious singularity in the South African jazz canon. There is nothing else on record from the period that has the deep, resonant urgency of the Batsumi sound, a reverb-drenched, formidably focused pulse, underpinned by the tight-locked interplay of traditional and trap drums, and pushed on by the throb of Zulu Bidis mesmeric bass figures. The warm notes of Johnny Mothopengs guitar complete a soundscape that is at once closely packed with sonic texture and simultaneously vibrating with open space, and in whose shimmer and haze Themba Koyana and Tom Masemola soar. A sonorous echo emanating from an ancient well, reverberant with jazz ghosts and warmed by the heat of soul and pop, Batsumi is nothing short of revelatory. Hand-numbered limited edition of 500 copies; includes insert." -Matsuli

"Franco Battiato moved into the 1970s on the crest of the progressive rock wave. This 1972 impossibly strange record inhabits that nether world of pop music, electronics, politics and experimental rock. Fetus is an album beyond all definition. Its a masterpiece of daring and wild risks that work every single time. Battiato takes us through eight uniquely super-detailed songs that tug at the heart strings as no other experimental record ever could. New liner notes by Jim ORourke." - Water.

Format: LP
Label: Vinyl Magic
Country: Italy
Price: $35.00
"An internationally known artist, Franco Battiato has been everything in his long career, from beat singer to avantgarde performer, producer, and contemporary music composer. His beginnings lay in the mid 60s, with many singles released with no particular success, the first two under his real name of Francesco. He had left his native Sicily (he was born in Jonia, near Catania in 1945) moving to Milan around 1965. In 1970 after his collaboration with Osage Tribe (that he quit before their only album Arrowhead) he had a record deal with Bla Bla, releasing his first solo album in 1972. Foetus, housed in a outrageous cover (reproducing a foetus) was definitely a prog album, but a very original one, with a minimalist sound mainly based on the use of a VCS3 synth, unusual lyrics, complex arrangements. Two tracks, Energia and Una cellula were also released as single. Produced by Pino Massara in the 70s, Foetus remained unreleased until 1999, when Vinyl Magic finally released it on CD (VM CD 065). This little gem of Italian progressive music is now reissued in its most suitable format, as a black 180 gram vinyl enclosed in a beautiful argent laminated cover." - Vinyl Magic.

Title: Le Xerox et lInfini
Format: Cass
Label: The Tapeworm
Country: UK
Price: $8.00
"Cassette-only release in a limited edition of 250 copies. Jean Baudrillards Le Xerox Et lInfini -- originally published in Paris, 1987 -- as read by Patricia and Ellen. Recorded on July 12, 2009 by Vicki Bennett in Hersham, England. Jean Baudrillard is perhaps the most important theorist of the "after modern." Though he says he has "nothing to do with postmodernism," many interpret him among the most important prophets of a truly postmodern era. His works have attracted praise and derision all over the world. Since 1991, British artist Vicki Bennett (People Like Us) has been an influential figure in the field of audiovisual collage, through her innovative sampling, appropriating and cutting up of found footage and archives. Using collage as her main form of expression, she creates works that communicate a humorous, dark and often surreal view on life. Patricia and Ellen were born in Reims, northeastern France, on July 29, 1929. They told interviewers that their grandparents were peasants and their parents were civil servants. They became the first of their family to attend university when they enrolled in the Sorbonne University in Paris. There they studied German, which led to them teaching the subject at a provincial lycée, where they remained from 1958 until their departure in 1966. While teaching, Patricia and Ellen began to publish reviews of literature, and translate the works of such authors as Peter Weiss, Bertolt Brecht and Wilhelm Mühlmann. Later on, with the development of the magnetic tape recorder, Patricia and Ellen used these new means in order to manipulate their performances and expand the possibilities of language sound transformations. Patricia and Ellen continue to actively perform their work, the contextual quality of which is enhanced by their idiosyncratic delivery." -The Tapeworm

Title: Machines of Desire

Country: Germany
Price: $24.00
LP version. Includes CD. "In October 2014 an idea suddenly came to mind. Although I had spent much of my life performing, recording and producing music, my attention over the immediately preceding years had been focused on the philosophy and psychology of human nature. It was a rewarding exploration, but I missed being more creative -- suddenly I felt the urge to play music again. I built a recording studio in my basement and began writing material for the first time in a long while. In November I called Edgar Froese and we met in early January 2015 in Austria. It was an extraordinary encounter and it seemed like it would lead to a renewed collaboration after several decades. As many of you now know Edgar passed away on January 20th 2015, I miss him dearly. Machines of Desire is filled with many influences, not least of them, my time with Tangerine Dream. Recording this album has been a very rich experience that fulfilled my creative desires, with more to come. The title, Machines of Desire, reflects my belief that as human beings were driven relentlessly by our deepest desires: the desire to experience life and love, to be heard and seen, to connect with others, to be safe, to find meaning and purpose . . . and countless more. We find ourselves in the drama of everyday life with uncertainty at every step, with fear of loss and existential loneliness, and only occasionally interrupted by the fundamental joy of being alive." - Peter Baumann, February 2016.

Title: Romance 76
Format: LP
Label: Bureau B
Country: Germany
Price: $23.00
"Bureau B present a reissue of Peter Baumanns solo debut album Romance 76, originally released in 1976. From 1971 to 1977, Peter Baumann was a member of the legendary Berlin band Tangerine Dream. The group were pioneers of the so called Berliner Schule (Berlin School) which had a profound impact on electronic music. With Peter Baumann on board, Tangerine Dream grew into one of the most influential bands in electronic krautrock, sited somewhere between experimental electronica and progressive rock. Baumanns positive aura and eagerness to experiment galvanized the bands music almost instantaneously. His catchy melodies, rich in positivity, propelled Tangerine Dream into the charts. After five years of chart appearances, extensive touring and several albums, Baumann initiated his solo career with Romance 76. "Romance 76 resulted from the urge to create new music. I felt we had begun repeating ourselves in Tangerine Dream and I was keen to discover new things, to carry on experimenting. Improvisation had been common to us all, but on your own it isnt quite so simple." This shift in focus led him to leave Tangerine Dream towards the end of 1977. He and a friend set up the Paragon Studio in Berlin, which would earn a prominent place in music production history. Still a member of the band in 1976, Baumann rented a hall in the ufaFabrik, Berlin to record Romance 76. The influence of Tangerine Dream can clearly be heard on Romance 76, although the arrangements are comparatively minimalist. Sonic similarities to Tangerine Dream can be explained by the fact that the group used the same space for gig rehearsals, giving Baumann access to their instruments. The distinctive sound of a modular synthesizer system can be detected on Romance 76, for example, along with a mellotron. The minimal compositions airiness lends the unusual synth sounds space to unfold in all their glory. A state of affairs for which David Bowie is partially responsible, as Baumann recalls: "We were in Berlin and met him for dinner, then he would call in while I was recording the album, listening carefully to what I was working on. I explained to him what still needed to be done, but Bowie suggested: Leave it as it is, theres enough there already. " At which point Baumann decided to look at the tracks in question as finished. This reissue includes extensive liner notes and rare photographs." - Bureau B.

Title: Trans Harmonic Nights
Format: LP
Label: Bureau B
Country: Germany
Price: $23.00
"Bureau B present a reissue of Peter Baumanns second solo album Trans Harmonic Nights, originally released in 1979. From 1971 to 1977, Peter Baumann was a member of the legendary Berlin band Tangerine Dream. The group were pioneers of the so called Berliner Schule (Berlin School) which had a profound impact on electronic music. Trans Harmonic Nights sees Baumann continue to break free from the gravitational pull of Tangerine Dream. Hans-Joachim Roedelius was recording the Jardin Au Fou album (BB 023CD/LP) at the same time in his Paragon Studio and some of his carefree positivity seems to have rubbed off on Baumann, judging by the music he came up with. The production phase for Trans Harmonic Nights covered 16 months or thereabouts. Having built the studio and taken care of production on albums for Cluster, Asmus Tietchens, Conrad Schnitzler and Hans-Joachim Roedelius, many of which came out on the French label Egg, he had neither the time nor the inclination to focus on his own compositions. Numerous tracks on the album were actually created at the end of the working day, on downtime, just for fun in the unfinished studio. Peter Baumann explains: "It was a completely different time for music, everything we did was spontaneous, in the moment. My first two records happened when I was working in the studio, simply expressing myself as a musician, sensing which emotions, timbres, rhythms and melodies were closest to me." This approach shines through the music, underpinning its authenticity and making the album such a delight to listen to today: carefree, playful, unbelievably euphoric. Synth lines are exhilaratingly entwined with synthetic plucks, experimental sounds crystallize into sweet melodies, building into ecstatic breaks. Majestic mellotron choirs and added vocoder tones lend an ethereal, surreal touch. It is virtually impossible not to get caught up in this rapture, to be swayed by the infectiously upbeat nature of the music. Not long after releasing this album, Peter Baumann relocated to the USA where he recorded two more albums by the year 1983, dominated by wave and synth pop sounds. In 1984 he founded his own label, Private Music. In the late 1990s he withdrew from the music business altogether, only resurfacing in May 2016 with Machines Of Desire (BB 234CD/LP)." - Bureau B.

"Baumann/Koek is another hitherto undiscovered treasure of German electronic music, the only album by the electronic music pairing of Wolfgang Baumann and Ata Koek, both from Kempten, Bavaria, Germany. It was mixed in Conny Planks studio and distributed, without a label, by the duo themselves in 1978. The music owes much to the Berlin School; layered sequencer patterns, swirling chord tapestries, a computer beat here and there. Eastern elements or hints thereof add a particular charm to Baumann/Koek, reissued here for the first time. Rumors persist that Peter Baumann of Tangerine Dream is behind the Baumann/Koek project. But in actual fact, Baumann/Koek can unequivocally be identified as Wolfgang Baumann (no, not the MPS Records cover artist), born in Kempten in 1950, and his friend Ata Koek (Köktürk, to be precise), born in Istanbul in 1956. In their mid-20s, the pair made the trip from Kempten to Bonn with the singular aim of visiting the legendary Synthesizerstudio Bonn, the very same store where Kraftwerk and countless other electronic icons went shopping for their equipment. They purchased a secondhand ARP 2600, began experimenting, and realized that they needed more gear. Before long they had added an ARP sequencer, a Solina String keyboard, and an EKO Compurhythm drum computer to their arsenal. Last but not least, they acquired a four-track recorder and were ready to commit their music to tape, before going to the expense of booking Conny Planks studio for the mix. They pressed up 1000 LPs and paid the production costs themselves. The album was well-received and the Swabian wholesaler Jaguar Records stepped in for worldwide distribution, but unfortunately went bankrupt shortly afterward. Baumann and Koek were disinclined to take on any further financial risk and decided against a follow-up record. The music clearly references the Berlin School, with a hypnotic maelstrom of sequencer patterns and swirling tapestries of mostly minor chords, underpinned at times by a computer beat. What really sets the music apart from comparable productions is the subtle influence of Arabian tonality, which saw Koek consciously introduce just a hint of Eastern flavor. If Baumann and Koek considered their "modest" equipment to be a hindrance, their music sounded all the better for it. There is a raw, unpolished quality to the tracks, a clarity that draws the listener closer, far more so than the bombastic productions of contemporaries like Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze, et al." - Bureau B.

"Alicia Bay Laurel is well known as the writer and illustrator of one of the classic books of the back-to-the-earth movement, the 1970 hand-written guide to living the good life, Living On the Earth. She is also an accomplished singer, songwriter, and guitarist, the latter skill honed by studying with John Fahey. The songs on Music from Living On the Earth were composed concurrently with the writing of the book, permeated by the sun and soil of the commune life. Bright and earthy paeans to the natural world, featuring ABLs pure, strong, and uplifting voice atop her fluid, confident, and deft steel-string acoustic guitar fingerpicking, her style showing that she learned well from Fahey. She also collaborated with San Francisco Tape Music Center co-founder Ramon Sender Barayón, who contributes the 40-voice choral arrangement for the closing track. Although these songs were written as the 60s became the 70s, Music from Living On the Earth was actually recorded in 2000, first issued as a self-produced CD, and reissued on CD by EM Records in 2006 (EM 1047CD). This 2015 15th anniversary edition is its first appearance on vinyl, and includes liner notes by the artist as well as English and Japanese lyrics, allowing listeners to again hear ABLs blues, jazz, and Indian music influences meld with folk roots to glorious effect." - EM.

Label: Sub Rosa
Country: Belgium
Price: $16.00
"Pressed on limited edition silver clear vinyl. Sub Rosa presents the complete version of Les Couleurs de la Nuit, as premiered in 1982, and one of François Bayles masterpieces. François Bayle studied with Stockhausen and Messiaen. He joined the ORTF Groupe de Musique Concrète in 1960. He later led the group when it became the Groupe de Recherches Musicales in 1966. Most of his compositions are electronic, and his first important work, "Espaces inhabitables" (1967) is suggestive of an imaginary world in which nature is distorted in a dream-like fashion. He later utilized natural and synthetic sounds in his compositions, such as the recorded sounds made in a Lebanese cave. He has stated that his purpose as a composer is to enable the listener to feel the motion and vibration of energy in the universe. François Bayle characterizes his art like this: "...my purpose was always the same: to compose with only images-de-sons (sound images); to show how, through pure listening in an acousmatic situation, these sound images move like butterflies through audible space and project a colored twinkling on the listener. Out of frame, this is a world proved by itself..." Les Couleurs de la Nuit was created for "tapes and computer."" - Sub Rosa.

Recorded between 1969 and 1972 (with one track featuring Robert Wyatt and Kevin Ayers...). "In addition to being a masterpiece of the acousmatic repertoire, LExpérience Acoustique is also a fine example of the musical research spirit. This work, a systematic exploration, investigates the true nature of the listening process itself. The composition of this piece, spread over several years, managed to tap into the potential of the analogue technologies of its time, producing a complex blend of unprecedented sonic occurrences. What emerges from this extensive work is a reflection on sound, in all its forms and through all its textures. François Bayle therefore invites us to a genuine listening experience and for the first time on vinyl, in its full version lasting more than two hours." - Christian Zanési and François Bonnet.

His recent move from North Carolina that year had left him with a sense of longing to reconnect with his past and the lush open landscape he left behind. During that year Dustin experimented with innovative methods of self-recording (using a Tascam four-track and Logic Pro) and composing. He drew his inspiration from improvisational jazz, classical and shoegaze artists, such as Anthony Braxton, pre-Stereolab project McCarthy and Giuseppe Tartini. Playing all his own instruments (keyboard, drums, bass, guitar), he soon emerged with a shimmering array of sun drenched pop songs. Dustin eventually linked creative forces with John Pena (bass), Sennott Burke (guitar) and Cole Smith (drums) who joined the band and helped collaborate on the songs Wide Awake and Gathering. The full bands immediate chemistry and unforgettable stage presence radiate with a wild, youthful-sincerity.

"After being discovered by fans of 60s underground psychedelia in the late 1980s, the sole self-titled 1967 album by Orange County band Beat Of The Earth has grown into a classic within the field, in spite of its rarity. The improvisational music on the album cannot be easily categorized, but most would agree that it represents a unique link between mid-1960s California and the droning acid rock of the later era. From a preternatural surf-era 45 and a local b-movie soundtrack, Phil Pearlmans ascent (or descent) presents a fascinating slice of music history for anyone to chew on. Unbeknown to Pearlman and friends, they had unleashed a primal head record that astounds still. Recorded in 1967 in Hollywood with legendary producer Jim Sidore, Beat Of The Earths legacy remains as fresh and inventive today as it did in 1967. Stoned Circle proudly presents a collision of vision and artistry. Professionally re-mastered original sound recording with expansive liners, interviews and rare archival photos.” - Stoned Circle.

"Phil Pearlman, whose Relatively Clean Rivers album (RRLP020) has received universal acclaim, assembled Beat Of The Earth in 1967 with this, their first, eponymous album, appearing on the Radish label (AS0001) in the same year. BOTE is often compared with their illustrious East coast counterparts, The Velvet Underground, an apt comparison given the Velvets penchant for long, unstructured jams using a myriad assortment of acoustic and electronic instruments. This is the earliest incarnation of the band, and the one that is most familiar to collectors fortunate enough to own a copy of this incredibly rare album. The album consists of a single track per side, and this, the bands recording debut, is considered an unusual and singular item of significance from the California 60s alternative rock scene. Although guitarist Pearlman managed to keep Beat Of The Earth together for much of the remainder of the 60s, it is fair to say that no more proper recordings were made, although Pearlman continued to add to his personal collection of studio recordings, drafting in new musicians for impromptu after-hours recording sessions arranged at short notice.

Title: This Record Is an Artistic Statement
Format: LP
Label: Radich
Country: USA
Price: $24.00
"Two foundational documents of American private-press psychedelic rock emerge from decades-long shadows, deeply illuminated chapters authored by prototypical "terminally unique" Southern California artist/seeker Phil Pearlman and two of his early, briefly extant bands.
From 1967, Phil Pearlman (The Electronic Hole (RAD 002LP) and the majestic Relatively Clean Rivers (ASH 3007CD)) leads a free assemblage of local Southern California acid-heads through loping Velvetica tribal incantations. The Beat of the Earth earns its name in two side-length jams brimming with eastern-tinged luminosity. It is the sun-dappled mirror of The Velvet Undergrounds "Sister Ray." Instead of the urban decay and black and white pop art of the Warhol scene, The Beat of the Earth represents the same idea, looking west across the Pacific. This comes from the same yet intrinsically polar opposite frame of mind from the VU noise marathons of their epic live shows. Mind-expanding psychedelia done by sun-gobbed hippies that were totally out of step with everything else happening in Southern California of the pop-psych 60s. This record stands as much an outsider statement as ESP-Disks Cromagnon record (ESPDISK 2001CD/LP), or any of the Swedish bands of the Silence stable. It is a truly zonked masterpiece of tribal hippy culture dosed to the gills! Limited edition of 300." - Radich.

"The debut 7"of San Diegos Beaters, a split release with Single Screen Records, springs from the ashes of San Diego punk/soul/garage legends the Sess, comprising three members of that band.  Lead by Jeremy Rojas, their brand of "pre-apocalyptic" mutant-punk fuses early-80s punk with a gamut of paranoia and weirdness, and live the band stands out as a true propulsive force.  Expect a 7 soon from Zoo Music, the label run by Brandon from the Crocodiles and Dee Dee from Dum Dum Girls, as well as the debut 7 on Volar of Ale Mania, comprised of the same 3/5 members from the Sess, but this time lead by their drummer, Andrew Montoya, fusing punk, funk, and new wave paranoia." - Volar.

Title: Solos
Format: LP
Label: What The..?
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"In spring 2009, Robert Beatty (of solo Three Legged Race and band Hair Police) Beatty travelled as a collaborating and touring member of Burning Star Core -- with whom he has collaborated and toured as a member of for a number of years as well. Written into the setlist performed every night was slot for an improvised solo by Robert, on his special electronics rig, synthesizer, space echo, question boxes, etc. Anything sound he wanted, "make it sing." So imagine similar to three hour stadium show, the moment for the bass solo or perhaps drum solo, except this is a few minutes out of a 30 or 40 minute long set. Except the stage doesnt rise up or no additional smoke blows across. So imagine if almost every Burning Star Core performance was recorded on this tour and these "Robert Beatty" solos were cut out and strung along into an work of their own ? This LP "SOLOS" realizes that concept. It is live, but it is not collage; it is a document, but it is not comprehensive to the originating context. So ten complete solos, in chronological order, on two sides of LP, about run time of 35 minutes. Paste-ons jacket with creepy Robert poster to get to know. 166 copies of this work for fans of detailed-driven minimum electronics." - What the...?.

Title: Soundtracks For Takeshi Murata
Format: LP
Label: Glistening Examples
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Glistening Examples is proud to announce “Soundtracks for Takeshi Murata” (GLEX-1302), the debut LP/CD of Kentucky-based electronic musician Robert Beatty under his given name. Beatty has long been a presence in the experimental underground as a member of Hair Police and more recently performing and recording solo under his Three Legged Race moniker. He is also well known for his visual art, which encompasses installation, drawing, video, and album artwork design for countless artists including Oneohtrix Point Never, Real Estate, Vybz Kartel, and Peaking Lights. “Soundtracks for Takeshi Murata” collects Beattys compositions for digital video glitch pioneer Takeshi Murata, produced between 2004-2007. Beattys collaborative relationship with Murata has spawned some of his strongest work to date, and Glistening Examples is honored to present this music to the public for the the first time outside of screenings, museums, and galleries. Beatty has performed alongside Muratas work in New York, Chicago, Pittsburgh, and Beijing, where he performed several shows, including at the Ullens Center for Contemporary Art during the 2008 exhibition, "Stray Alchemists." The formative elements of the recent Three Legged Race full length "Persuasive Barrier" (Spectrum Spools, 2013) are apparent in the rubbery pulsations of "Escape Spirit Videoslime" and the ghostly buzzing harmonics of "Untitled (Silver)". Moving between hypnotic minimalism, dense processed atmospheres, and spacious drones, often in the same track, these pieces are the perfect corollary to Muratas fractured and viscous visuals. While the video and audio are linked in the same fluid time space, the soundtracks are presented now as stand-alone works, powerful compositions drawn from the same underlying chaos apparent in Muratas ever-shifting psychedelic environments. This is exciting electronic music that invites the listener to imagine their own videoscapes with or without having viewed Muratas work. “Soundtracks for Takeshi Murata” is published in an LP edition as well as CD format, with new artwork from Murata, design by Beatty, and digital mastering by Jason Lescalleet at Glistening Labs USA. The LP includes a download code and an 11"x17" poster. The CD includes a bonus track not found on the LP. " - Glistening Examples.

Title: Creation
Format: LP
Label: Sommor
Country: Spain
Price: $27.00
"Originally released in 1971 on John Peels Dandelion Records, Creation is the second album by underground folk troubadour Trevor "Beau" Midgley. Influenced by Tom Paxton, Lead Belly, and Dylan, Beau started to write his own songs in the late 60s. After trying to secure a contract with Elektra Records with no success, he was approached by Clive Selwood (Elektra) and Peel as they were launcing Dandelion Records. Beau signed with them and released his eponymous debut album in 1969. For his second effort, Beau decided to experiment with a more folk-rock sound and add to the mix some avant-garde influences. Jim Milne (lead guitar and bass) and Steve Clayton (drums) from Dandelion stablemates The Way We Live/Tractor were the perfect backing band for him. Creation is a brilliant psych/acid folk offering with superb 12-string guitars, heartfelt vocals, studio effects, and occasional acid-fuzz guitar. Beaus avant-garde influences come to the fore on the title-track, which verges into White Noise territory. The album closes with "Silence Returns," featuring one of the most ear-splitting fuzz assaults ever committed to wax, courtesy of Jim Milne. This first vinyl reissue includes two previously unreleased bonus tracks from 1972 (featuring Tractor as backing band), recorded for aborted third album High Mass. Also includes four-page insert featuring the first cover design (which was never used), plus detailed liner notes by Beau himself and lyrics. Master tape sound." - Sommor.

Songs such as: Loneliness Is A Sometime Thing, Dead Woman Blues and Deaf Priscilla are outstanding but as highlights of this album we would vote all 14 tracks.

Title: Mantra
Format: LP
Label: QBICO
Country: Italy
Price: $24.00
"A prison is a noisy place. The clanging of bells announcing the prison routine, the whir and ratcheting, banging and slamming of electric gates and mechanical metal doors, the ebb and flow of human vocalizations as hundreds of people caged against their will respond to their conditions in myriad ways -- to express their loneliness, or discontent, or rage, or insanity, or merely to cheer or boo a play in a football game on television -- punctuated by the shouts of guards who must enforce their authority to maintain what passes for order in such places. All of this and more is amplified within the confines of reverberant concrete walls, conspiring to make it difficult to find, much less preserve, ones peace of mind. I composed Mantra: soundscapes for meditation in response to several requests from some of my fellow prisoners. I was asked to create some gentle music that they could listen to on their personal cassette players as an aid in practicing meditation and relaxation techniques widely accepted as valuable tools in the process of healing mind, body and spirit. The challenge was to produce a musical composition that would help to mask the noise of the environment without being intrusive or demanding too much of the listeners attention, while incorporating combinations of tones and textures that may aid an individual in achieving a relaxed, meditative state of consciousness. By all reports, including my own experience, Mantra succeeds in its intended mission. As environmental music, it also seems to work well as a focusing agent when doing some types of creative work, or when reading, and to enhance the restfulness of sleep when set to play continuously through the night at low volume. You may find other uses for it as well. For all I know, it may help plants to grow more healthy, or soothe a teething baby. We are all doing time in one way or another, and the stresses of day to day life make it imperative that we find ways to generate harmony within ourselves from time to time. I hope that Mantra will serve you in this regard as well as it has served some of my friends in prison. Peace, Bobby BeauSoleil." - Qbico

Format: 4LP Boxset

Country: USA
Price: $67.00
"Now, for the first time, all of the music composed for the soundtrack project has been compiled into a single public release. The Lucifer Rising Suite begins with the 1967 version of the soundtrack and continues through a logical sequence of the recordings made in the years spanning 1976-79. With respect to the latter, the original master tapes were mined for music that had not been heard by anyone in nearly three decades. The newly unearthed recordings were then restored, cleaned up and combined with those previously released to make the anthology as complete as possible. The compositions that comprise the Suite are sequenced in an order that tells a story, after a fashion. It is a story that may be impossible to tell in a strictly literary manner, one that -- like a mirrors reflection into another -- is both personal and allegorical. A complete anthology of the recordings made for the Lucifer Rising motion picture soundtrack by Bobby Beausoleil with The Freedom Orchestra and The Magick Powerhouse Of Oz. This fully authorized and definitive release will include: - Remastered recordings spanning 11 years, from the 67 recording to the Tracy Prison recordings of 78. - 4 full-length LPs worth of Lucifer Rising material with half being never-before-heard sessions personally selected by Bobby BeauSoleil. - 9 new pieces of art from Bobby: 8 record sleeve panels and one 2 x 3 poster. - 2 posters: one by Bobby BeauSoleil and one by Dennis Dread. - A much-extended version of the Fallen Angel Blues piece by Bobby that originally appeared in the Kenneth Anger DVD set. - Hymns to the Solar Temple -- impressions on a visit to Bobby at the Oregon Correctional Facility in Pendleton, Oregon by Dennis Dread. - The Saga of a Soundtrack by Michael Moynihan. - Art from Dennis Dread for the back of the LP box, also to be included as a 2 x 2 poster. - Art from Dennis Dread for the front lid of the box which will provide a window into the works of Bobbys to be found within. Remastered by Robert Ferbrache, well known for his work with Blood Axis, 16 Horsepower and others. All art has been created specifically for this release." - Anja.

"To set the scene: its 1974, its Paris, two young guys in their bed-sit (one of whom is French music maven/famous producer Jay Alanski) are dreaming of counter-culture, and their internal versions of California and New York. The result is this album, a child begotten of Marc Bolan, Baudelaire, and Lautréamont; a fascinating record, subtle and engaging as it is scarce; the re-creation of a parallel pop universe which one Michael Moorcock wouldnt have renounced. Somehow, the duo got their record out into the world on Monde Melodys one-off Silk imprint (a tribute to Marc Bolan). And what twisted songs (in English) they managed to squeeze into a fifty-minute slab of vinyl. The music drips with deep nostalgia for the decadent beautiful people who lived and breathed and then found a home in the songs of Lou Reed and Leonard Cohen, pervaded throughout with a kind of psychedelic sadness. All of this is expressed by means of long, jagged acid guitar runs (or in acoustic strums) supported by Moroccan percussion (bongos?) and heavy bass lines from Christophe J. A post-quaalude album, as band leader Jay Alanski has said. If the LP had been released in 1971, everyone would point to T-Rex as an influence, and call it glam folk; fast forward to today and its hard not to think loner, and draw comparisons with the music of Devendra Banhart, albeit recorded 35 years ago! Were now several decades further on in the worlds slow self-destruction, but this sole recording by the Beautiful Losers has lost nothing of its freshness and superb arrogance. Blessed be the listener who is going to discover such a hidden treasure!" - Lion Productions. Includes a 32-page booklet and bonus track "Nobody Knows The Heaven" (alternate version).

But few people know that in the 70s, Francis Bebey delved into electronic music. The first electronic keyboards, organs and drum machines offered him new possibilities of totally controlling his compositions.

"Double LP version with printed inner sleeve. Born Bad Records presents the music of Cameroonian musician Francis Bebey, circa 1982-1984. "The first time I saw a sanza (a type of African thumb piano), it was just sitting there on a piece of furniture in my familys living room/dining room -- a space that our father also transformed into a recording studio every day. It seemed more like a box than a musical instrument: a mysterious instrument, which arrived at our house, like many things, in a somewhat miraculous way. The sounds it produced seemed particularly bizarre; to my young musicians ears, trained in Western classical music, it sounded out of tune. Thats because, like my brothers and sisters, I had been trained on the piano. I had trouble understanding how anyone could endure these tones and, honestly, our fathers passion for unusual sounds did not interest me. I was in secondary school at the time (the very late 1970s) and was not at all oriented toward musical projects. I planned to graduate, and then become a chef. In the early 1980s, my interest in music picked up. I was still undecided about my career. I was content to pursue my serious English studies while hanging out at jazz clubs at les Halles in Paris, where I sometimes joined jam sessions. Next, I put together my first band with professional musicians; I had hidden my age and lack of experience from them. France was just beginning to accept world music. Musicians of every nationality were performing in Paris. It was a wonderful period. My father asked my brother Toups and me to accompany him for a few concerts. In particular, we toured Tunisia together at the time of the 1983 Carthage International Festival. Back then, my father was renowned across the French-speaking world. Everyone looked forward to hearing his humorous songs, like Agatha and La condition masculine. But, behind the scenes, he continued his research concerning electronic music, the sansa, pygmy polyphony, etc. One day he put a sansa in my hands, without saying a word. He was sending me a message: Lets see what you can do with it! Thats when I really discovered something. Exploring the instrument and playing, I transcended the imperfect aspect of its sound and began to discover its fascinating potential. Playing the sansa, you enter a world that enraptures you in a very serene and mesmerizing way. I think its sounds evoke a rainbow, with rain falling while the sun shines. A very peaceful feeling. It allows you to make music that truly sounds like life. The sansa is also the instrument that my father and I shared the most because I am a pianist and he was a guitarist. I also share this eminently African instrument with my musician brother, Toups. Our father loved to tell us one of the legends of the sansa: how it even managed to dispel the boredom felt by... the Creator himself! This instrument gives life to the world, to beings and things. I did not participate in the production of the various records that my father devoted to the sansa. He did it himself, you might say, in his laboratory. Yet today, I cannot imagine playing a concert without using a sansa. The piano remains present so that listeners dont become disoriented and wonder about the weird sounds invading their ears! However, I find the eccentric and disturbing side of sansa interesting. And the sansa always affects the audience: in reality, it excites them. The secrets of this instrument are surely its beneficial powers and... its magic!" -Patrick Bebey.

"In the vast world of electronic music, where sounds, signifiers and gestures are recontextualized to a numbing degree, it is increasingly rare and refreshing to encounter a release as perspective-distorting as the debut full-length release by Rashad Becker. The album is a masterpiece of focused, non-referential electronic environments. It is both warm, alien, paranoid and exhilarating. Sounds are stretched in the most unusual manner, foreign bodies are frequent and the structure is simply bewildering. Split into "Themes" and "Dances," the eight tracks guide the listener through Beckers brave new world. Despite being entirely synthetic, there are sounds which appear like a distortion of the world around us, on occasion "voice-like" sounds are present, elsewhere there appears the sound of cicadas, only these cicadas are made of mercury and swim through time. The end result is beautiful in a way only a unique work of art can be. PAN is proud to present the outside from within. Mastered and cut by Becker himself at Dubplates & Mastering, and pressed on 140 gram vinyl." -Pan.

Format: LP
Label: Pan
Country: UK
Price: $27.00
"Rashad Beckers new full length album, Traditional Music of Notional Species Vol. II, is a newly developed continuation and exploration of work since his highly-acclaimed first volume (PAN 034LP, 2013). Incorporating more instrumental-sounding components, the record moves through both fluid and dissonant sounds, which take on different structural and sculptural challenges through carefully-layered compositions. Following Traditional Music of Notional Species Vol. I, Vol. II expands in various elements, distorted and warped, focusing in on the tension and energy of synthesized sounds that appear to exist, hauntingly physically. Known for his unrivaled attention to sonic detail across his work, Beckers unique techniques and expressive manipulations of sound are laid bare in an exhilarating new form, stylistically distinctive and uncompromising. The album is mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering. Artwork by Bill Kouligas." - Pan.

Title: Demos Anthology 1968-70 (The Cozy Powell Beginnings)
Format: LP
Label: Acid Nightmare
Country: UK
Price: $31.00
"Bedlam and its earlier incarnations (Ideal Milk, Big Bertha, etc.) were a hotbed for launching the career of superstar drummer Cozy Powell (RIP), who later played with such major Hard Rock acts as Whitesnake, Rainbow, and Black Sabbath. In this earlier stage, we can hear the fantastic guitar playing of Dave Ball very influenced by Cream/Clapton, his brother Denny on bass and Cozy on drums. In fact this early incarnation of Bedlam called Ideal Milk was almost a tribute to Cream. Moving on later, singer Ace Kefford enters the picture for a short stint with the band where they change the band name to Ace Kefford Stand. Ace was the ex-bass player of the Move. The B-side of the record has the Big Bertha demos which had different singers including Denny Ball which also sang on Ideal Milk. The style is still similar to Cream/Jeff Beck Group, sometimes with an heavier edge predicting what was going to come after 2 years (meanwhile Cozy was with The Jeff Beck Group and Dave Ball joined Procol Harum). Reissue limited to 400 copies with insert that includes detailed song liner notes written by Denny Ball and rare pics. Remastered from the master tapes for best sound quality possible." -Acid Nightmare.

Price: $20.00
"Edition of 500. In the nu-world order of neo-kosmiche "one man, a synth and a looper pedal" musicians, Chris Madak rises above the rest with an astounding body of work that has been brewing since the later half of the 00s. Canzoni Dal Laboratorio Del Silenzio Cosmico is an outstanding document in the long, complex, and complicated discography that is the Bee Mask project. A carefully and meticulously-composed album thats on par with the greats of electronics Lovely Music or INA-GRM catalogs. Straying from the current nature of improvised "one take" synthesizer music flooding the underground electronic community today, Chris has created an elaborate narrative which captivates and inspires the listeners imagination. "Canzoni" is a piece of work that soundtracks an event thats shrouded in mystery and beauty, at once larger than life in its grandeur and yet somewhat cryptic. Released as a limited edition cassette on Gift Tapes in 2010 and now where it should be on the longest surviving recorded format." - Spectrum Spools.

The album resonates a future sound vision that can only come from an old soul destined to further pave the paths laid by electronic and minimalist pioneers. Thorough audio examinations covering every facet of sound/tone property as a whole will reveal astonishing new layers listen after listen. Undeniably pure processes of creating and sustaining sound visually, sonically and otherwise brings a mathematical and scientific accuracy that hasnt been seen since the days of Lovely Music Ltd. or GRM. The albums two side-long cuts are divided into two displays of versatility with varied sound sources including amplified acoustic instruments, hand-made electronics, phonography and more. Brilliant textures and audio hallucinogenic time/space wormholes create infinite listening possibilities for this album. Few albums can create such a disorienting tunnel that it sounds as if the record has multiple albums locked within itself -- you can hear these sounds and interpret them in so many ways that only time can unlock its many possibilities. Great albums only gain significance and this is surely no exception.

Title: Vaporware/Scanops
Format: LP
Label: Room40
Country: Australia
Price: $25.00
"Bee Mask is a project from Chris Madak, a native of Cleveland, Ohio now residing in Philadelphia, and a vehicle for an intricate and deeply warped sensibility which remains coherent without being beholden to specific techniques or materials, drawing equally on the ecstatic human/machine couplings of 1970s West Coast synthesis, the fractured gloss of sampler concrète, the iridescent thumbprint of high minimalism on the IQ-decimating throb of trunk bass, and the barely-sublimated currents of vertigo and terror that course beneath the most unsettling moments in the canon of home-recorded psychedelia. Editions of his recent work are available on Spectrum Spools and Room40. His new edition for Room40, Vaporware/Scanops charts a new and at times unfamiliar musical universe, a galaxy of complex patterns in constant states of evolving and dissolving. These are pieces that unfold with an unerring organic sensibility that belies the sound-sources used. Like much of Bee Masks output to date, this is a world of controlled voltage and sequenced chaos. But there is a twist in the form of the unexpected and utterly welcome addition of voice. Over the two long-form pieces, Bee Mask reveals a juxtaposition of deeply electronic materials with a swelling cascade of vocal loops recorded by Autre Ne Veut and Katherine Brady. The resulting sound is quite unlike anything weve heard from Bee Mask before. Cut at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin. Limited vinyl edition of 500 copies housed in a gorgeous matte celloglazed sleeve." - Room40.

Title: When We Were Eating Unripe Pears
Format: LP
Label: Spectrum Spools
Country: USA
Price: $21.00
"The seven pieces on this LP were developed over a period of about five years; Rain in Coffee is built on a Hyperborean Trenchtown-era demo, while Pinq Drinq -- sorrel, for the record, and neither guava nor antacid as certain wags have already ventured -- was reanimated directly from the cutting-room floor, 11th hour, 2012. As a whole, they should probably be considered the proper sequel to Canzoni dal Laboratorio del Silenzio Cosmico, extending that records preoccupation with the dream interiors of post-1965 Fellini and synthesizing (pun very much NOT intended) it with Elegy for Beach Fridays fascination with the lush and abject facets of advanced gastronomy and the embrace of the recursive, solipsistic, simultaneously expansive and claustrophobic universe of the sampler on Vaporware/Scanops. However, in direct contrast to each of those prior works, When We Were Eating Unripe Pears draws more deeply on formal ideas from the history of records than any Bee Mask release to date. Toward this end, most of its constituent tracks were hammered into their finished shapes on the road throughout 2011 and 2012. Those of you who heard me on tour in the United States, Canada, Australia, and Japan, and particularly at Voice of the Valley, the Bunker, and Labyrinth played a part in the process of shaping this material and so may well experience the shock of the familiar. When We Were Eating Unripe Pears was recorded in Cleveland and Philadelphia between 2007-2012. It was edited and mixed at Tranquility Base in Summer 2012, mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates and Mastering, and pressed by Pallas Group. The first 300 copies are on translucent green vinyl. Mark Price did the photography and layout. Special thanks are also owed to Jason Anderson, Katherine Brady, Matt Carlson, John Elliott, Lawrence English, Daniel Lopatin, and Alex Moskos, without whose perspectives this would be a very different and much lesser beast." -Chris Madak, Philadelphia, October 2012.

Also, some solo and collaborative pieces were released in Belgium and Germany on singles, EPs and compilation albums . I have always thought of my work as art rather than entertainment .

"Peter Behrendsen (b. 1943) is a Cologne-based radio producer, performer, and composer of experimental music. He started concerning himself with electro-acoustic music in 1972. He was a member of Josef Anton Riedls ensemble and an assistant to Klaus Schöning at the WDR radio play studio (Studio for Acoustic Art). In Cologne, he organized numerous concerts and festivals for experimental music, most notably BrückenMusik, a series of concerts in the box girder of the Deutz bridge. He regards John Cage, Alvin Lucier, Jackson Mac Low, and David Tudor as his most important teachers, with whom he also collaborated, and has performed his own live-electronic and text-sound compositions throughout Europe. This LP pairs a live-electronic and a text-sound piece: "Nachtflug" ("Night Flight", 1999) is based on electronic treatment of the sounds of bats made audible, and is performed by Hans W. Koch and Behrendsen. "Atem des Windes" ("Breath of Wind", 1999-2005) is a text-sound composition on the subject of the wind, inspired by a Taoist text by the Chinese philosopher Zhuangzi, and features the voices of Bettina Wenzel and Behrendsen.

"German composer and sound artist Marc Behrens has put forth a beautiful installment of sound work for CMRs second CD release, entitled Architectural Commentaries. Marc has been working with sound (in one form or another) since 1986 and is probably most recognised for his digitally re-worked field material and composition. With a long history of installation work and live performance, he has exhibited alone and in group exhibitions; and performed live internationally in locations such as Japan, Switzerland, Italy, Slovenia, Spain, and the UK. He has completed tours with fellow sound artists Francisco Lopez, Bernhard Gunter and John Duncan and has had notable CD releases on Gunters label Trente Oiseaux (Germany), Digital Narcis (Japan), Raster Music (Germany) and Intransitive Recordings (USA). Architectural Commentaries is comprised of five tracks. The first three pieces, entitled Architectural Commentaries 1-3, are some of Marcs most recent compositions arranged in 2001 using basic material recorded from 1990-2000 in various global locations. Taking title, sleeve images and sound together we are left with new audible environments for architectural structures; jets of forced air and amplified nothing, distant machinery and tiny bites of frequency, faded and cut together to create beautifully atmospheric soundscapes. Track 4 was previously released on RLWs Tulpas 5 CD set (Selektion 024) and was constructed using source material from Ralf Wehowsky. Track 5 was composed in 1992 as a soundtrack to accompany the video Der Raum by Torsten Grosch - stills of which feature on the CD sleeve. The album permits a smooth flow between Marcs earlier and more recent work and shows the artists continuing exploration into the depth and dimensions of sound recording." - CMR.

Title: My Dear Siegfried
Format: Double CD
Label: XI
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
2005 release. “David Behrman has been active as a composer and artist since the 1960s. Over the years he has made sound and multimedia installations for gallery spaces as well as musical compositions. Sam Behrman and Siegfried Sassoon met in 1920, when Behrman, then a young writer working at The New York Times, was sent to interview Sassoon at the start of the English poets postwar American lecture tour. In that tour Sassoon was billed as "Englands Soldier-Poet." He had a reputation both as a war hero and an anti-war poet and peace activist. Many years later, each author wrote about this youthful meeting, which inaugurated a long-lasting friendship and a correspondence, mostly conducted via trans-Atlantic letters between England and America, which continued into the 1950s. My Dear Siegfried provides a performance environment in which musicians interact with texts by the two authors and with music software designed to respond to the performers actions. The texts and the software elements are arranged as a linear thread along which the piece progresses. In QSRL (1998) a sensor listens to what the performer is doing and a computer music system provides responses to information the sensor takes in. Viewfinder (2002) is a sound installation using software based on homemade synthesizer music of the early 1970s. In A New Team Takes Over (1969), homemade synthesizer modules were used in this piece to distort recordings made off the air of press conferences by members of the new Nixon administration following the American election of 1968. Touch Tones (1979), from the early days of music done with the help of newly-available, small, inexpensive "microcomputers," made use of a kind of primitive artificial intelligence scheme. Pools of Phase Locked Loops (1972) was one of four pieces made in response to commissions to the artists of the Sonic Arts Union (Robert Ashley, Alvin Lucier, Gordon Mumma, and Behrman). The recording is from a live performance at Radio Bremen in May 1972.” - XI.

Title: Unforeseen Events
Format: CD
Label: XI
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
1991 release. “Unforeseen Events is one of many pieces David Behrman has made with computer software designed to interact in real time with a solo performer. The four sections recorded here were made specifically with Ben Neills performance style in mind. The electronic timbres are intended to complement the sounds of his instrument, the admirable and humorous mutantrumpet, with its three separately-mutable and playable bells. Refractive Light consists of three small pieces based on an interweaving and overlapping of simple phrases. A musician strikes pitches that trigger responses in the form of sustained tones. The tones die out after a few seconds. While a tone is on it deflects the pitches of other "on" tones, so that harmonic changes occur at the on-and-off edges of overlappping layers. The idea can give rise to a kind of fanning or breathing rhythm that adapts itself to different styles of playing, and to a harmonic vocabulary with dozens or scores of family members.” - XI.

Label: Alga Marghen
Country: Italy
Price: $20.00
"2015 remastered CD in digipak with 12-page booklet including liner notes written by the composer as well as diagrams and scores relating to the published works. Wave Train, originally released by Alga Marghen in 1998, collects experimental works by David Behrman recorded between 1959 and 1968, featuring the Sonic Arts Union. The CD starts with "Canons," a short piece created in Darmstadt over three weeks in the summer of 1959 with David Tudor on piano and Christoph Caskel on percussion. "Ricercar" is a prepared piano piece made in 1961 and has the flexible form of the kind favored by European composers in the early 1960s, and also reflects the work of Cowell and Cage. "Wave Train" (1966), a powerful feedback piece performed live with Gordon Mumma, marks the radical moment when Behrman threw away established techniques. "Players With Circuits" (1966) is an exploration of raw materials; a combination of live electronics and amplified acoustic sound. "Sounds for a Film By Bob Watts," for outdoor environment recording and homemade synthesizer, was recorded at Stony Point, the artists cooperative which John Cage, David Tudor, Sari Dienes, and other friends had established. The last piece, "Runthrough," was made for performance by members of the Sonic Arts Union: Alvin Lucier, Gordon Mumma, Robert Ashley, and, of course, Behrman himself; two of them working the dials and switches of homemade synthesizers, and two others distributing sound in space with homemade photocell mixers; Time Records released a different version of this piece in 1969." - Alga Marghen.

"Sinclair Beiles (1930-2000), one of South Africas more unusual and often underrated poets, left his home country in the mid-fifties and after spending time in New Zealand, Spain and Morocco he moved to Paris which at the time was the centre of international bohemia. Beiles worked in Paris as chief editor for publisher Maurice Girodias Olympia Press and established links with the American beat generation of writers, particularly Allen Ginsberg, Brion Gysin, Gregory Corso and William Burroughs. Together they collaborated on the legendary collection of Dadaist cut-ups, Minutes to Go. When the Paris scene fell apart in the early sixties, he left for Greece. In 1969 Beiles published a volume of poetry Ashes of experience, his first substantial publication.
Beiles returned to South Africa in the seventies and later married fellow poet Marta Proctor. They moved into a house in Yeoville, Johannesburg and soon became part of the Yeoville artistic group in the eighties. He often performed his poetry live, at venues such as the Black Sun. In 1997 Beiles finally received some recognition when the French Cultural Institute and the British Council of Johannesburg organised a Beat Hotel exhibition in Carfax where Beiles read his poems. Beiles had a history of mental instability and his illness made him at times unpredictable and volatile. ‘Chopin in Majorca is a one-man play and was recorded in 1989. Cover photo by Gerard Bellaart.

"BELABORIS was born in 1982 as the brainchild of Finnish producer KIMMO MIETTINEN. What Malcolm McLaren had been to The Sex Pistols, Miettinen was to Belaboris. He would put together an all-girl band that looked great in photographs but were backed by professional musicians. The first line-up was VILMA VAINKAINEN, SISKO VAINKAINEN and RITA on back-up plus JAKE and MARI who did not sing at all. The backing band behind Belaboris was a local New Wave group called TYHJAT PATTERIT. The main songwriter was ESA IJAS (guitar, synthesizer) along with his bandmates ARI IJAS (bass) and MARTTI JALONEN (drums). Belaboris debut 12" single "Kuolleet Peilit" was released in November 1982. It was followed by the "Odotus" 7" single in February 1983. The band broke up and posthumously released a mini-LP called Olipa Kerran in 1984. WIthin a few months, an all new Belaboris line-up was put together. This version was a trio consisting of SAARA SOISALO, SALLAMAARI MUHONEN, and MINNA SOISALO. They released a 7" single "Rakkauden Jaelkeen," an atmospheric electronic version of 60s Scandinavian pop hit by Carola. Shortly thereafter this line-up was quietly shelved and no further efforts were made. Once Upon A Time collects songs from all three EP releases and the "Olipa Kerran" mini-LP as well as two unreleased demos never before on vinyl. The vinyl comes housed in a full color jacket and includes an insert with liner notes, lyrics and photos." -Dark Entries.

"Natura Morta, "dead nature" or "still life."

Six tracks, to be listened to as two long explorations in the art of variation and repetition. Layers of drums and percussions intertwine with synth waves, making the portrait come to life, detail after detail, until a complex figure emerges from the white canvas. The constant, unsteady sounds, wavering noise, swirling cymbals, and distant feedback gently pull the listener into the picture, letting them enjoy every detail of these beautifully-staged compositions. Recorded at EMS studio, Stockholm, ZKM in Karlsruhe and at the legendary Funkhaus in Berlin, this album mixes influences from both Italian minimalism and the electro-acoustic contemporary scene. Somewhere in between the electronics of Keith Fullerton Whitman, the percussive repetitions of Jon Mueller, and the atmospheric sensibility of Pan-American." - Miasmah.

"The Believers were, in many ways, the flagship band of the Apostasy Recordings empire. Their roots were in the Hampshire College-based experimental outfit, Son Of Earth - Flesh in Bone Trio (generally shortened to Son Of Earth), via Matt Krefting and John Shaw. Also on board were Anna Klein (player with many woefully under-documented ensembles) and Jessi Swenson, Esq. (who was associated with various Scott Foust projects, and would go on to 50 Foot Women). But much of this other work was abstract weirdo-ism. The Believers were, more or less, a rock band, and they kinda fucking ruled. They recorded an album for Ben Chasnys planned label almost a decade ago, but the release never ended up happening, and the Believers split into their component parts not long afterwards. But our memories of their throbbing presence and carefully planned wardrobe choices would overwhelm us some nights, and wed find ourselves startled awake, covered with sweat, thinking we had missed several important boats by not documenting their passage in the proper way. In the intervening years, the four Believers have gone off to different pastimes. Some are related to music, some are not. And it took some wheedling on our parts, but we finally got this live LP out of them. And it cooks. One side was recorded in 04 at the old Flywheel in Easthampton, and provides a rather clear portrait of their sweetly thuggish pop dynamism. The flip was recorded at the same venue in 06, with guest squeedle provided by Conrad Capistran and Joshua Burkett (aka Tarp). Although we often think of Tarps sound as retiring, here it is aggressive. And it adds a strangely perfect width to the droogly and angular lurch of their inventions. A beautiful album. Long overdue." - Byron Coley, 2016. Edition of 400.

"To many, CRAIG BELL is well known as bass guitarist / singer with MIRRORS and ROCKET FROM THE TOMBS, two bands that were among the foundation stones upon which the Cleveland, Ohio music scene of the 1970s was built. What many may not know is that Craig was also an integral part of the beginnings of another era of creativity in New Haven, Connecticut in the following decade. With like minded musicians, Craig formed SAUCERS, FUTURE PLAN, THE PLAN, THE BELL SYSTEM and THE RHYTHM METHODISTS in the years he lived on the East Coast (1976—1989). Craig released few recordings during this time, two singles with Saucers, “What We Do/Muckraker” (1979) and “A Certain Kind of Shy/Shes Alright” (1980), songs on the compilation LPs It Happened But Nobody Noticed (1982) featuring cuts by Saucers and The Plan, while The Bell System had their “America Now” released on the radio station only SCREAM promo LP (1985), and a single by The Plan, “I Love New York/I Hate New York/When Its Too Much” (1983), most of them on his Gustav Label. In 2002, a CD compilation by Grand Theft Audio out of Los Angeles collected the entire studio output of Saucers on an album titled What We Did. This, along with reissues of songs Craig played on with Mirrors and RFTT, was the only recording of his work available. 2016 brings aka Darwin Layne, an LP featuring 11 historic recordings, both live and studio, featuring Craigs songwriting and his bands Future Plan, The Plan, The Bell System, and The Rhythm Methodists, along with selections by Saucers, Mirrors, and THE BRIDGEPORT BAD BOYS." - Ever/Never.

Title: Dreams of Falling
Format: Cass
Label: Körper/Leib
Country: Italy
Price: $9.00
"This is the repress of “Dreams of Falling”, the first album by musician and poet Sandra Bell, from New Zealand." - Körper/Leib.
"The record was born after a discussion with Peter Jefferies in Dunedin, about rerecording the song “Industrial Night“.I had known Peter vaguely from Auckland but never worked with him. “Industrial Night” was on my first vinyl release the EP “Blackbirds” which I had recorded in Auckland, and I wanted to reinterpret it. For the next year, from the end of 1990 until the end of 1991, we also recorded a back log of my other songs on and off at our home in Maitland St, and also Fish St and Studio 13. Peter was a master of the Teac 4 track, and of musical arrangement. I was able to experiment and realise the potential of each song with his advanced skills. It seems miraculous looking back now that it was all done on 4 tracks, bouncing down at times and using two 4 tracks at one time for other tracks. I remember a cut in a song meant an actual cut of the tape, which Peter did with precision and skill. The wonderful musicians who played on the album took the songs from mundane to sublime- David Mitchells lead break on Industrial Night was exhilarating and exciting, Kathy Bull added clever bass lines, Peters industrial drumming was a constant force, Alastair Galbraiths violin, Bruce Bluchers guitar, and the unmistakable distorted keyboards of Peter Gutteridge all added intrinsically to the final sound . Actually Peter Gutteridge recently said to me about Subway Nihilism” I should have got a co- writing credit for that song” as it was created in a session at Maitland St, when I put a poem to his riff, so he was right about that. A couple of the songs where influenced by a spell living alone in the Queensland rain forest- Manai is influenced by aboriginal music and legend, as was Waitawhile, which is the name of a spikey rainforest plant. The Country girls is a song for my sister Jean, about the loss of our mother when we were young. Floating aground was written about Aramoana- Peter and I had been inside for a few days totally absorbed in recording-I was speaking to my elderly neighbour who told me 13 people had been killed at Aramoana, I thought she was completely mad, but so sadly it was true. We were at Aramoana for a memorial service, and walking along the beach there were flowers in the water, which reminded me of St Marie De La Mere in the Sth of France, where the gypsys take an effigy of St Marie into the sea each year. Dreams of Falling was picked up by Xpressway who had released Peters album, then by Turbulence in Belgium, and opened up a new world for me which led on to another 3 albums, tours of America and Europe." - Sandra Bell.

Title: Dreams of Falling
Format: LP
Label: Straight to Video
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Sandra Bells Dreams of Falling is an experimental tour de force that ranges from ethereal sound collage to poetic industrial noise. Originally released as a cassette on New Zealands Xpressway label in 1991, the record also features Peter Jefferies, Peter Gutteridge, Alastair Galbraith, Kathy Bull, David Mitchell and Bruce Blucher. Essential listening for any NZ underground music fan." - Straight to Video.

“Secret NZ Ripper made in Dunedin in 90-91. Originally released as a cassette on Xpressway, the record boasts this nearly unfathomable cast in addition to Sandra Bell herself:
- David Mitchell (Exploding Budgies, Goblin Mix, 3Ds, Ghost Club) - Bruce Blucher (Alpaca Brothers, Trash, Cyclops) - Kathy Bull (Look Blue Go Purple, Cyclops) - Alastair Galbraith (the Rip, Plagal Grind) - Peter Gutteridge (The Clean, Great Unwashed, Snapper) - Peter Jefferies (Nocturnal Projections, This Kind Of Punishment, Plagal Grind, Two Foot Flame, Cyclops)
Dreams Of Falling holds a singular place in both Sandra Bells discography and the evolution of New Zealands underground music. Bell is a singer, songwriter and poet, currently residing in Auckland, New Zealand, who has been making records since 1984. Each one is marked by the place and time where it was made. The moody folk rock of Blackbirds, from 1986, expressed the anxiety of existence in Aucklands inner city while City Of Sorrows, made over a decade later in Berlin, articulated the instability of expatriate life in post-reunification Germany.
Dreams Of Falling was made in Dunedin during 1990-91, when many of the more aspirant Flying Nun pop crowd had abandoned NZs South island. The Xpressway label had united the disaffected non-conformists left behind into a self-reliant cadre, and the LPs personnel reads like an Xpressway whos who. David Mitchell (Exploding Budgies, Goblin Mix, 3Ds, Ghost Club) and Bruce Blucher (Alpaca Brothers, Trash, Cyclops) contribute stone-powdering guitar to three tracks, Kathy Bull (Look Blue Go Purple, Cyclops) bass to two, and Alastair Galbraith (the Rip, Plagal Grind) keening violin to one more. Peter Gutteridges (The Clean, Great Unwashed, Snapper) distorted keyboard is a defining presence on two more. But Peter Jefferies (Nocturnal Projections, This Kind Of Punishment, Plagal Grind, Two Foot Flame, Cyclops) drumming, piano, guitar, and 4-track tape wizardry are by far the strongest shaping forces on Dreams Of Falling.
The album constitutes a convergence of the unvarnished Xpressway sound world and poetic lyrical expression. Bell is a poet as well as a songwriter, so words matter, and she often uses them to articulate experiences of displacement and an accompanying sense of loss. Maori legend, Australian geography, urban blight, and local catastrophe — “Floating Aground” responds to the mass shooting at nearby Aramoana — are all present in Dreams Of Falling. It is at once a deeply personal work and a nodal point, focusing the inspiration of predecessors like The Raincoats and This Heat and projecting it into a future where artists like Azalia Snail and Circuit Des Yeux pay close attention.” - Bill Meyer, May 2016.

Title: Piano Gaucho
Format: Cass
Label: No Rent
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
Edition of 100. "Piano Gaucho carefully develops Bob Bellerues tonal infatuation with rendering the piano into a demonic ingress. The piano functions as an essential frame for amps, speakers, mics, pickups, pedals, laptop, and guts to negotiate and re-evaluate the fated instrument into a much more heinous sonic source.Bellerues experiments with the instrument mark time slowly against a rotating core of oscillating feedback — a cold, gradual pace that proceeds solemnly. Fascinated with the suspended tension of the piano strings, the pieces deliberate pace casts long, shadowy passages of sound — forgoing any rhythmic brutalism in favor of an anxiety that evolves within long intervals of empty space. The exorcised tones breed within these open expanses. Recalling the grim work of bass experimentalists such asStephen OMalley or blackened Scandinavian film scores — and all the images contained therein — Bellerue roots the instrumental role of the piano firmly within this space. A wicked piano music is revealed; his commitment to instruments sinister potential is total." - Nick Scavo.

Title: Amplified Piano Duets
Format: One-Sided LP & CDR
Label: Anarchymoon
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Without giving much of a clue as to process or instrumentation, theres still a bit more at stake between this duo collaboration and other PE/noise experiments of its type. There doesnt seem to be any mixer/source abuse here; were led, from the title, to believe that this is a capturing of treated piano, though it doesnt sound much like it. Excepting the possibility that the piano strings have been micd and processed, one normally doesnt get this much sustain out of a piano, even if they hold down the damper pedal. What surfaces is this noisy, yet warm and somehow harmonic buzzing drone, and if I had to say what it reminds me of, it would be the sound of a tractor with a lawn-mower attachment and vacuum bagger, cutting the grass of my parents backyard. More than any other noise recordings, this one throws off the a late summer afternoon ambiance, with the sun dying down and dinner being readied, when my dad was rounding the back corners, and was therefore further away from my bedroom window. It shares the same consistency and tonal qualities, and sounds like it could run forever. With these memories in tow, this becomes an exceptional and meaningful piece of music, though Im not sure if many people would agree with me on this, or could see the suburban POV from where Im coming." - Doug Mosurock, Still Single.

Country: Italy
Price: $29.00
"Giuseppe Ielasi and Nicola Ratti, two musicians from Italy with an extensive solo activity, started the Bellows project together in 2006 and released their first CD in 2007. Their second release, an LP available now on PLANAM, was recorded in November 2009 in Tübingen, Germany. Quite different from the first, this new project was developed around the simple technique of cutting/destroying and amplifying vinyl records with contact microphones, creating new grooves and physical loops while capturing the sounds on a Revox tape machine with long tape loops. No further transformations or processing were applied even if a couple of effect pedals and simple sine waves were sometimes used too. The result is a sort of very atmospheric and modern-electronic music as if these sonorities were recorded at the beginning of the last century on 78rpm shellac records. The sleeve features the original artwork by Italian artist Amedeo Martegani. Edition limited to 250 copies." - Planam.

"Italian electro-acoustic maestros Giuseppe Ielasi and Nicola Ratti aka Bellows serve up an engrossing, labyrinthine LP of freeform concrète dub. Rustl is Bellows fourth side, following a critically acclaimed trio of albums released since 2007 for Entracte, Planam and Kning Disc, and also follows Boomkat Editions last release, by another Milanese artist, Lorenzo Senni, which was coincidentally also mastered by Giuseppe Ielasi (BKEDIT 010LP). In a slight change from Bellows usual working method, Rustl represents a nimbly frayed sound much closer to what they do in a live situation. Using a few cassette players with tape loops animated by a couple of effects and recorded direct to two-track tape with no overdubs or mixing, they improvise ten viscous, amorphous plays framed by deep, bubbling subs, skittish percussions, and wheezing ferric abstractions with the most uncanny grasp of dub space. Their haptic, small sounds reveal tiny new sleights and discordant quarks with every listen, offering something more akin to a petri dish of live, kinetic cultures than the more fixed forms of their previous slabs.

Title: Clean Your Clock
Format: LP
Label: Moniker
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"The son of Kentucky pig farmers, JOHN BELLOWS adolescent mind had been seriously warped by the discovery of punk and an extended acid binge. He moved to Chicago in 2001 with a Tascam home recorder and a growing collection of songs. Clean Your Clock, his debut album, was completed in 2005, and self-released in a very limited pressing of CDRs. Bellows has spent the last eight years freaking out the Chicago underground with just a guitar and his singular vision. He has ingested and regurgitated virtually every form of popular music, from his fathers beloved Carter Family to the heavy riffage of AC/DC. But the psychedelic feast of Clean Your Clock is very much his own. With a playfulness rarely heard in modern music, Bellows veers effortlessly from face-shredders like "(You Just Got) Mutherfucked" to the shocking tenderness of "Imaginary Friend." And while the album covers an astonishing amount of musical ground, Bellows is no ironic dabbler. He means every last bit of it. With the long-overdue re-release of Clean Your Clock, Bellows is ready to turn on the world at large. Rural Kentuckys first and only rock savant, Clean Your Clock is his primal first statement, an almost-lost treasure of post-millennial purging. An incredibly intense live performer, Bellows continues to evolve, his musical imagination as vast as Americas rock n roll landscape. Released by the new Moniker label, started by ROBERT MANIS, the man responsible for unearthing the Death and J.T. IV albums released by Drag City." - Moniker.

"To a small circle of psychedelic music fans, the re-discovery of native Israeli, Danny Ben- Israels sole, privately released album, Chantarish 3, a few years ago was nothing short of a revelation. Despite having been sung in his native Hebrew, there was no getting away from the blissfully fuzzed out guitars and a voice that belted out resistant words like some mad cantorial singer. Now, after 35 years, Danny Ben Israels much talked about Katmandu Sessions produced for a Western audience and recorded in Tel Aviv and Austria between globetrotting stints around Europe finally sees the light of day. The seven tracks that make up the Kathmandu Sessions are nothing short if not completely over the top -- both of its time and prophetic. Every tune is delivered with that rare combination of wisdom and wonder, sung in a joyous English that brings together Tim Buckleys melancholic operatics with the lunatic vocal escapades of Mick Farren making this easily one of the true revelations for the 21st century." - Locust.

"John Bender recorded voraciously between 1978 and 1980 at his home in Cincinnati, Ohio. Not even song titles could slow down his creative pace, as he named all the tracks after their position on the original tapes. 36A2, for example, was cassette #36 side A, piece #2. To close the DIY aesthetic circle, Bender made sleeves by hand with no two covers alike and pressed the LPs in hyper-limited editions on his own Record Sluts imprint. I Dont Remember Now/I Dont Want To Talk About It, Benders first album from 1980, is the holy grail of minimal lo-fi electronics. Layers of fractured melodies, distorted synthesizers, hollowed-out rhythms and claustrophobic vocals unfold over the 40 minutes of this lost masterpiece. Its A Rainy Day, Sunshine Girl, one of Fausts greatest songs, is perfectly deconstructed by a distinct punk-meets-experimentalist sensibility. While I Dont Remember Now is impossibly rare and the man behind the music remains shrouded in self-imposed mystery, the real surprise is that it has taken 35+ years for listeners to discover Benders warm, art-damaged immediacy. This first-time standalone reissue is recommended for fans of Pere Ubu, Brian Eno and Robert Ashley. Limited to 1,000 numbered copies. Red vinyl with hand-stamped jackets, each one unique.

“2015 repress of the 2012 box set. John Bender is without a doubt the protagonist, if not the inventor, of the musical genre known as minimal wave. His synthesizer sounds carried elements of techno and acid a decade before the invention of techno. His voice and his somewhat sentimental, mournful lyrics made his music outstanding and extraordinary, an unprecedented mixture of elements. His three self-released LPs -- I Dont Remember Now (1980),Plaster Falling (1981), and Pop Surgery (1983) -- are must-haves for every serious collector and anyone interested in coldwave, minimal synth, and techno sounds. This seven-LP box set (with bonus 7") includes I Dont Remember Now, Plaster Falling (with selections from several tape releases known as Plaster: The Prototypes (1981)), Pop Surgery (also with selections from Plaster: The Prototypes), Packing List (1982), At the 4th St. Cage 1/83 (1983), Do the Cage (1983), and tracks from The Cassette (1986), originally released under Benders Johnny Vortex moniker.” - Vinyl-on-Demand.

"Plaster Falling was recorded at the same time as John Benders first album, I Dont Remember Now / I Dont Want To Talk About It. Released in 1981 on the artists own Record Sluts label, copies of Plaster Fallings initial pressing came hermetically sealed in plaster (and later latex). Thus, listeners had to literally break open the record to find whats hidden inside. Produced in relative isolation, Plaster Falling is a beacon of brilliance in the nascent minimal-wave sphere. Veering towards skeletal urgency, these recordings set bright analog melodies against half-whispered vocals and expand Benders electronic cryptography thru a series of lone signifiers: Station, Plaster, Women, etc. As Bender explains in the liner notes, I began to distance myself from the present and describe scenes as if in a movie -- seeking concrete, terse, juxtaposed imagery.

"Back when Dennis Tyfuss was still a goddamn baby, Alain Neffe and Naine Bal were already staining the Belgian soul with recordings released under the Bene Gesserit moniker. But here we are in 2013, and now, finally, the first U.S. vinyl issue of this material has become available for human consumption. The performing name may have been copped from one of those priestess/nun types in Frank Herberts novel, Dune, but Bene hews to none of the known priestess/nun-ic forms of sound. There are admittedly, some space-whispers, but they quickly resolve themselves into something more annoying/interesting, so they manage to feel a piece with the weird lashing-out of this LP. Because, really, the basic thrust of the album is combative, maybe overly aggressive, even. Working on the assumption that normal sucks, Bene seems determined to take this motherfucker apart at the seams. Language, electronics, standard-type music -- these are all mere tropes to be dismembered and re-sorted into some new type of standard. A standard that is oriented towards a discordant attack on standards, even when -- at moments, anyway -- it can sound as sonorous as a ride in a chapel-bound calliope. But wherever safety seems to lurk, there is a groaning troll somewhere underneath, a despot keen on wrecking easy pleasure and easy surcease. Bene create superbly disturbing music.

"Eleven new & previously unreleased songs from BeNe GeSSeRiT, the cult Belgian minimal synth duo of Alain Neffe (various instruments including synth, beats, loops, strings…) and Nadine Bal (vocals). Alain started his Insane Music imprint back in 1981, he is a key figure of the European cassette culture and has been making some of the most creative and cross-boundary music since the early 80’s, also with other numerous projects like Pseudo Code, Human Flesh and more recently, his and Nadine’s duo with singer Anna Homler, The Chopstick Sisters. The duo’s debut LP in 1985 “A High, Happy, Perverse And Cynical Cry of Joy” was a real gem and on this new album, they go back to their roots but take advantage of newer technologies and sonic textures - every song has a life of its own. Alain’s arrangements are impeccable and unpredictable, a mad variety of instruments and moods, punchy beats, hypnotic strings, groovy organ, crazy sax lines and an inventive use of sound shaping… at some point you’ll be in the middle of… a choir of frogs??! Nadine, on the other hand, is a muse of this and the OTHER world, she manages to sound like an angel, a child, a siren and an alien, often all in the same track. Our prescription is: listen to this LP over and over for best results, you will discover and feel something new at every listen. BeNe GeSSeRiT make truly charming and personal music that’s hard to pin down: too weird to be classified as pop, but not so much to be just avantgarde, surreal & emotional, sharing the aesthetic choices of Anne Clark, Roberto Cacciapaglia, Laurie Anderson, Kraftwerk, Die Form… Glossy full color covers with insane artwork by Alain Neffe." - Ultramarine.

Title: Spoilage
Format: LP
Label: Experimedia
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Bennett uses no electronics in his creations and improvisation plays a vital role. This is music that is messy and organic and human. The list of instruments and implements that Bennett uses throughout Spoilage is mind-boggling: everything from various drums to a wheelbarrow, pizza cutter, and the narrow part of a balloon is in play. Considering this, the cacophonous symphony that ensues isnt as out-of-control as one might think. No, this is carefully-constructed from beginning to end, each choice made at the spur of a moment and pushed to extremes. Spoilage is a maximalist exhibition, extorting visceral sounds from the tools at his disposal. Bennett flips back and forth in his song-titles from the specific and mundane to something more universal. All of it, though, is where this music comes from. Personal, political, whatever - it all goes hand-in-hand. The scattered, blown-out percussive blasts could be the bombs falling just as easily as that moment you realize the last bus arrived two minutes early and you were one minute late. Quiet scrapes flicker between gulfs of silence, leaving room for philosophical contemplation or drawing up a reward sign for your stolen bike." - Experimedia.

Title: Nerve Beats
Format: CD
Label: Atavistic
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"For those uninitiated, Han Bennink is one of the founding figures of European improvised music; longtime musical partner of Misha Mengelberg; and co-founder of the Instant Composers Pool (ICP). In short, Bennink is one of the most swinging, adventurous people on the planet. Though hes been active since the early 60s, Bennink remains energetic and irrepressible, and certainly qualifies as one of the great solo improvisers of the century -- at times madcap & go-for-broke, other times harrowing, but always a sheer delight. Recorded for Germanys Radio Bremen in 1973, in the period when Bennink was storming Europe in a trio with Peter Brotzmann and Fred Van Hove, Nerve Beats is a great recording never before issued on CD. It comes from a time when Bennink employed a gigantic setup; metal percussion, tons of extra drums, tablas, an early drum-machine, as well as non-percussive instruments like trombone, clarinet, and various impossible-to-describe objects. A 3 track live concert recorded in its entirety at the acoustically ideal Rathaus, Nerve Beats is also the only live document available of Han performing solo at this time, as his early FMP and ICP records are out of print (and decidedly sought after). Nerve Beats has been mastered from the radio session original tapes and sports new handmade cover art by Bennink (also an accomplished visual artist) and a freewheeling period portrait by outstanding photographer Pieter Boersma. Heres Han Bennink alone and at his most expansive, explosive, and wildly imaginative. Hilarious, razor sharp and not to be taken lightly." -Atavistic

"Bent Winds 1970 LP Sussex is perhaps the rarest Canadian record there is, but before dropping that massive set of heavy psych, they debuted with a small-run 45 that hit hard with a pair of considerably more straight-forward garage psych rockers. Released on the tiny local Trend label in 1969, this is a very good single that marks the transition from mid-60s garage to the heavier rock to come. New sleeve, made with full cooperation of the band." - Ugly Pop.

"First released on the tiny Trend label in 1969, Toronto quartet Bent Winds Sussex has, over the years, ascended to become one of the most-wanted and most-expensive psychedelic LPs worldwide. Easy to believe as the reckless fuzz workouts, murky production and a frontman with a heavy Lizard King fixation satisfies both the garage and trippier camps with equal abandon. Once The Lions, the album climax with its anthemic call to GET STONED!, has permeated your skull theres no turning back. There have been many reissues of this classic LP since its original release and all have been flawed by either lackadaisical mastering or lackluster contemporary bonus material. World Psychedelia have remedied this by producing the best-quality reissue to date, and bolstering the package with both sides of their 7" (Castles Made Of Man/Sacred Cows [single version]), a previously-unreleased 19-minute studio rehearsal from the era, band pics, and reproductions of gig flyers & 7" labels." - World Psychedelia.

"Monster heavy psych ultra-rarity from 1969 (Trend Records)—a volcanic dose of intense fuzz guitar, the perfect complement to the band’s sloppy garage ambience, and chugging beat; a strange case here, as the music on “Sussex” is often overshadowed by the album’s reputation as a one of the rarest collectible LPs in the world—a pity, as the music is as psychedelic as they come, a veritable fuzz guitar inferno! "An official reissue licensed by Marty Roth with the approval of Merv Buchanan (owner of the Trend Records). We proudly present the complete recordings made by legendary Bent Wind from 1969 till 1970. No need of any introduction on this monster rare, Canadian heavy psychedelic quartet. Do not expect to take the best sound quality from these primitive recordings but youll take for sure the most acidelic dose of the 60s music. Includes: Fully laminated cover. Two bonus tracks, one at the end of each side of the LP. Both the extra songs are from their lone 1969 single. The set comes along with a 7" EP, "The Lost Ryerson Tapes". It contains four tracks previously unreleased on vinyl, recorded in March 1970, by the original line-up.* 8-page LP-sized booklet with bio, photos, lyrics and memorabilia. *Reproduction of a Bent Wind gig poster. 180gr vinyl as usual.

"Algorithmic language detritus. Tape devolution. Queasy string work and pescatarian poetry. Vitrine closes out its Fall batch with the first audio publication from Philadelphia-based writer and artist Mel Bentley. This follows such strong showings as 2013’s & parts, released as a chapbook through Damask Press. Red Green Blue collects a wide berth of live performances and stray discomfort. Bentley’s writing evokes Black Tarantula-era Kathy Acker bisected by Ron Silliman and the panoply of Nathaniel Mackay. Aggregate Internet waste and epistolary diversion. Red Green Blue’s melange of text, field recordings, free improv intersections and tape manipulation harkens back to the openness of cassette magazines such as Underwhich Audiographics or Edition S Press. The Dundee Telegrams by the Paxton Group and Paula Claire is a somewhat probable touchstone, though there is a palpable vitality to these sonic extensions unfettered by reference or deference. Recitation ranges from the languid to the deadpan to a heated stumble of apprehension. There’s a freeness to these live recordings, as Bentley presents a variety of perspectives to approach the writing. The latent air within the performance space, the shuffle and cough of the audience and a torrent of rain fall on Baltimore Avenue are all given their opportunity alongside the character of Bentley’s formidable poetry. “Why can’t I dig my way out of a personality.” Limited to 100 copies." - Vitrine.

Price: $16.00
"Prisma Records is proud to present the first release dedicated to the music by the late Norwegian composer and electronic music pioneer, Sigurd Berge (1929-2002). This release showcases some of Berges earliest experiments with tape-machines and early synthesizers. The music is taken from three reels found in the Henie Onstad Art Centre music archives in 2009. The reason why these tapes were located at the art center is probably because Berge worked for several years at the NSEM - Norwegian Studio for Electronic Music, located at the art center. Berge also was a central part of the electronic music concert series Elektrofoni which took place at the center from 1968 until 1983. On the first tape were the unreleased pieces "Preludium," "Ritual" and "Sørgemusikk" and the pieces "Erupsjon" and "Eg Beisla Min Støvel." On a different tape, was the musique concrète piece "Delta," which Berge also used in collaboration with the avant-garde jazz group Svein Finnerud in 1970. The second part of this release is dedicated to one of Norways first multimedia art installations entitled "BLIKK." The work was commissioned for the Henie Onstad Art Centre in 1970 and created by the artists Irma Salo Jæger, Jan Erik Vold and Sigurd Berge. The installation consisted of Jægers kinetic sculptures, Volds abstract poetry and Berges electronic music, all blended together with one of Norways first computer-generated laser-light shows. The multimedia piece was so complicated to produce that the engineers Halvor Heier, Birger Komedal and Harald Schiøtz were hired on for technical assistance. The pioneering work "BLIKK" was exhibited at the Henie Onstad Art Centre between April-May in 1970. Prisma Records is proud to release one of Norways most acclaimed experimental composers and electronic music pioneers for the first time on a complete CD release." -Prisma.

The sound is totally lost in time and transports you back to the carefree days of the early seventies and is extremely trippy. You have to check out the wah wah auto harp, the weird percussion and bass, a great listen almost pre-dates the current folktronica scene.

"Heres how Acid Archives describes this fantastic album: Truly bizarre folk-psych album thats more enjoyable than a lot of "better" records. Two of the first three songs are weird loungy covers of Nights In White Satin and Aerosmiths Dream On, neither of which sound like anything else on the album. For surprise value alone, Dream On works the better of the two, since the Moody Blues tune was dangerously close to lounge to begin with. Most of the other songs are full of fiddle-style violin and autoharp, the latter of which is often treated with phasing, flanging and other effects... Spastic, cymbal-heavy drumming adds another layer of intrigue... Both the male and female vocals are agreeable and work well in the context of these strange songs. The closing Wind (the Circus Maximus song) is another total departure, again not resembling anything else on the album, and sounding uncannily like a Linda Perhacs outtake. This album is kind of a shock on first listen, because at least to these jaded ears its not often I discover something so original and bizarre.⿝ This is truly a one of a kind album⿿you have to listen it to believe it!!!

For the soundtrack Dale used sounds belonging to the country house and garden in which Sawa filmed - water running in the upstairs bathroom; rain water dripping on the stones outside the kitchen door, sparkling water in a glass on the table, the wind-chime and the clock and the record player... And then the sounds of music boxes being played - one elaborate antique music-box with bells the shape of bees and a miniature hollow drum, and other simple music boxes, playing only one tune each, tiny naked metallic combs and drums and handles.

"After numerous releases with the artist Jonathan Meese, No Time Left is finally the first solo album by the artist and musician Tim Berresheim (Cologne). Besides last years 7 on Meeuw Muzak it is also the first release that doesnt appear on his own New Amerika imprint, but on Eventuell - a label which specializes in artists records and produced a collaboration between Raymond Pettibon, Otomo Yoshihide and Blank in 2005. No Time Left is an impressive proof of Berresheims musical skills, both as multi-instrumentalist, programmer and composer. The four tracks on this LP are carefully constructed mixtures of wonderful guitar and basslines, atmospheric synth-layers, dubby electronic music and unorthodox samples. Although very eclectic in its wide range of sounds and elements, the recordings are characterized by a coherent mood. If you can imagine a hybrid of Nurse With Wound, early Residents and Tom Recchion, youre probably quite near to what can be heard on this great record. The four instrumentals correspond with four large, modified black-and-white photographs by Tim Berresheim which are fully reproduced on four sides of the stunning extra-large gatefold-cover in the form of a triptych. An impressive artists record which comes in a limited edition of 400 copies." - Eventuell.

"A good three years after his first solo debut No Time Left on Eventuell, Tim Berresheim presents Studies in Future Blues. The new album shows a different take on experimental music. While No Time Left gave a proof of his skills as a multi-instrumentalist, Studies in Future Blues is pure computer music. The title is programmatic because here Berresheim presents different takes on blues rock, from plunderphonic tracks in the tradition of John Oswald via melancholic treatments a la Caretaker, to abstract micro-assemblies that remind of early computer music like Horacio Vaggione, for example. The six tracks, all entitled Wicked Son, are highly entertaining demonstrations of his craftsmanship.

Somewhere beyond the borders of rock, jazz, punk and sound poetry -- the vocals seem to come from another planet, with lyrics in an improvised language. The winds are blown from Tibetan human bones and conch seashells. Guitars sound like rubber and steel. Expect the unexpected. Special guest Zap Pascal (accordion) appears on one track. David Fenech is a French musician living in Paris. He has played and recorded with musicians such as Felix Kubin, Jad Fair, Tom Cora, Rhys Chatham, Bérangère Maximin, James Plotkin, Shugo Tokumaru, Ergo Phizmiz, and many others. His baroque style has been described as "a kind of punk musique concrète." He is the origin of the Superdisque recording project, using his own home studio as an instrument. Jac Berrocal is a cult trumpet player living in Paris. He has played with various musicians including Pascal Comelade, Jaki Liebezeit (Can), Nurse With Wound, Sunny Murray, Jacques Thollot, James Chance, Pierre Bastien, Aki Onda, Lol Coxhill, Catalogue, Christophe, etc. Hes also known for his famous Rock And Roll Station, recorded with Vince Taylor. Ghédalia Tazartès is an orchestra and a pop group in one person. His voice shifts constantly from child to diva, from African sorcerer to Tibetan monk. His hypnotic, disturbing polyphonies draw us into an emotional universe. Its punk, sound poetry, folklore and electroacoustics rolled into one. Ghédalia has been recording music in his Parisian home studio for more than 40 years. He has also worked for theater, dance and more recently for cinema. Both Jac Berrocal and Ghédalia Tazartès appear on the famous Nurse With Wound list." -Sub Rosa.

It only wants to put forward these personages who, strangely, have common particularities: innovators, avant gardists, passionate about liberty and pleasures. « Je vous veux » on side A is a cosmic and sensual ballad, a perfect compromise between the lascivious and velvety words of Marie France and Belsens powerful solemn machines and jumbles of guitars mingled with the whistlings of Berrocals flute. « Marie-Antoinette is not dead ou dans quelle position je vous laisse » plunges us into the night, at 4.30 in the morning, the time when Marie-Antoinette writes her last letter. Heady machines, drums, trumpets and sizzlings lead the countdown in a western-tinted suspense and an atmosphere a la Lynch, punctuated with the sentences of Marie France who reads Marie-Antoinette, proud to the end, to the sharp and brutal final blade, giving us shudders. A sharp and historic 7".” - Rotorelief.

Title: Catalogue
Format: CD
Label: Alga Marghen
Country: Italy
Price: $20.00
"Released in 1979 in a limited edition on his own dAvantage label, Catalogue, with its overt theatricality is every bit as wild as the previous Paralleles. Not really jazz, not rock, having nothing to do with contemporary music either, Catalogue is a kind of sonic postcard which features not the group of the same name but instead numerous Berrocal associates including Potage (co-founder of the dAvantage label in 1976), Parle, Ferlet, Pauvros and recording engineer Daniel Deshays, plus many musicians from the French underground collective scene of the 1970s. Not content with manhandling a toy piano on Tango (which features mind-blowing accordion from Parle), abusing an arsenal of instruments including saw blades, pistols, shower attachment and even gingerbread, Berrocal pushes his own voice way over the edge on Incontrolablslaooo and Faits Divers, moving from a 60-a-day smokers cough to a terrifying sequence of gargles and vomits. The grungy free rock of No More Dirty Bla Blaps, the Portsmouth Sinfonia-like spoof Dixieland of Rideau, the distressing punk of Signe Particulier and all manner of fields recordings and cut-ups in Berrocals Artaudian theatre style, combining the excesses of glam and punk cold-wave to post-1968 Situationist perspective. With the same creative attitude documented through the mythic dAvantage label (1976-1979) Berrocal later accumulated an extensive archive of unreleased recordings, some of which finally surface now on this new edition.      Catalogue represents the most experimental and complex of Berrocals records, as historical as contemporary modern, classic and at the same time as fresh and strange as if it had been recorded last week. During the same year Steven Stapleton frequently travelled to Paris to meet Jaques Berrocal and discuss a possible collaboration. In 1980, Berrocal travelled to London with his pocket trumpet and Tibetan oboe and recorded with Stapleton, Heman Patak and John Fothergill on NWWs second album, but thats another story." - Alga Marghen.

2009 repress, originally released in 2001. "Jacques Berrocal has been very active since the beginning of the 1970s. No one in France could mix jazz, improvisation, rocknroll, punk, no wave, spoken words and industrial music like him. He also had a central position in the creation of dAvantage, a collective record label that issued some of the most particular sessions of the mid-late Seventies. At the same time he was working on never ending sessions for records that were never issued. Jac and his band were the Apostles of the non-urgency, enjoying recording in unusual situations, with no rules, improvising on undefined structures or using non-musical material mixed with ethnic instrumental solos. In 1976 dAvantage issued a wonderful record LP titled Parallèles featuring, among the others, Bernard Vitet, Roger Ferlet, Pierre Bastien, Michel Potage, Daniel Deshays, with the intervention of Vince Taylor, the dark diamond of rocknroll who inspired David Bowies Ziggy Stardust. Just a couple of years later Berrocal collaborated with Steven Stapleton to create the first Nurse with Would record LP. Parallèles features very different styles; acoustic solo and duo for trombone and cornet as well as a large ensemble 25 minutes long piece dedicated to the Futurist Russolo (again, two years later, Mr.Stapleton dedicated his first NWW record to the same Italian artist). Also to mention are Post-Card, recorded in a Pigsty in 1976, and the legendary Rocknroll Station, a mini-concert for voice (Vince Taylor), double bass (Roger Ferlet) and bicycle (Jac Berrocal). The remastered CD also includes five previously unreleased tracks that were actually left out of the original record: Villa Povera Naturale (1972) is a short piece for pocket trumpet and various concrete elements; Occupè by Michel Potage is an excerpt taken from an LP that dAvantage never issued; Shorten and Lisylis Pavillon are the first experiments using electronics and Cryptea IV, taken from the sessions of the early Futura LP. Thirty years later Jacques Berrocal is still there, where nothing is waiting for him, totally outside the rules, out of fashion thus indémodable. A digipack CD edition including a folded insert with very nice original photos and scores." -Alga Marghen.

Format: CD
Label: Blackest Ever Black
Country: UK
Price: $18.00
"Legendary trumpeter Jac Berrocal joins two fellow travelers in the French avant-garde, David Fenech and Vincent Epplay. A lugubrious mise-en-scène in which ice-cold outlaw jazz meets musique concrète, DIY whimsy, and dubwise studio science, all watched over by the lost souls and hungry ghosts of rock n roll. The trios first album together, Antigravity is a richly imagined universe combining original compositions and détourned standards. Berrocal revisits his own signature piece "Rock n Roll Station," which first appeared on his 77 LP Parallèles (TES 037CD) with chain-wielding, leather-clad wildman of British rock n roll Vince Taylor singing the lead, and Berrocal on micd up bicycle; here, the Frenchman takes the vocal reins. A barely recognizable interpretation of Talking Heads "The Overload" pushes beyond the bush of ghosts into a fourth world dread-zone of stalking drum-machine rhythms, humid electronics, and jagged guitar phrasing, while "Where Flamingos Fly" reroutes the Gil Evans Orchestras classic rendition through the seamiest back-streets of the 13th arrondissement; there, as on the trios reading of "Kinder Lieder," the mood is romantic, but stark, isolationist: imagine Chet Baker falling through the glacial sound-world of early PiL or Scott Walkers Climate of Hunter. Originals include the agitated Iberian psychedelia of "Spain," and "Panic in Bali," which begins in seemingly trad-jazz fashion only to swell into a cacophony of a gurgling electronics and fevered "Lonely Woman" quotations. "Solaris" is a swirling, suspenseful arabesque of whiplash guitars and Black Ark FX, Berrocals trumpet hitting deep blue notes while his vocals are sliced and diced and tossed into a yawning void of tape-delay -- like Antigravity at large, the result is oblique, dissolving, forever out of reach. Despite the chilly, sometimes austere mood of the album, it is, ultimately, a deeply human and welcoming work, with a playfulness and sly humor pervading; see the anarchic cross-hatch of "Ife Layo," or the CD-only track "Lessai des Suintes ou le bal des Futaies," Berrocals poetic disquisition on the infinite variety of female genitalia. Mischief and misdirection are rife here, and fans of Officer!, Henry Cow, and the ReR axis will find much to chew on. Play, as we know, is serious business. Put another way, and to quote Berrocal entirely out of context, Antigravity is completely crazy, completely timeless, completely out. As its title suggests, the objective is nothing less than lift-off, weightlessness, a total unshackling from earth. Sunglasses on, collar up, lets go." - Blackest Ever Black.

Title: Where Dark Forces Meet
Format: LP
Label: Vinyl-On-Demand
Country: Germany
Price: $22.00
Limited edition of 444. Includes hand-numbered certificate. "A vinyl reissue of Ron Berrys Where Dark Forces Meet, originally released on cassette in 1982. Ron became interested in electronics as a child in the mid-fifties, making radios and other electronic projects. He built my first synthesizer from a magazine article, but the performance wasnt that great so he started to modify it. Before too long hed built a modular system of his own design. Microprocessor boards became affordable at the end of the seventies. The outcome of the experiments was a fully programmable sequencer and an electronic percussion unit. A friend of Rons, Phil Clogg, became interested in it. The result of this was to form an electronic duo called Out of Control around 1979. It was based around two modular synthesizers, guitar, vocals and a further synthesizer and electronic percussion controlled by my unique microprocessor based sequencer. The microprocessor generated all the basic rhythmic backing control patterns for the synthesizers and electronic percussion during the whole of the gig. Phil played guitar, sang vocals plus playing a pedal board for some extra bass depth. They were one of the first bands in the UK to employ a computer for live music creation and generation. For them this was so much better than using a fixed backing on a tape recorder as some were doing. The duo was a huge turning point for Ron. After Out of Control, Ron produced his first electronic music album Where Dark Forces Meet, released on cassette on the independent Flowmotion. The album is basically a 4 track multi-track recording, with extra atmospheres and effects flown in using a couple of additional two track tape recorders. The mixing desk at the time was six channels, plus the mixers on Rons synthesizers. From the success of this, he really wanted to develop his own solo electronic rock ambient music live, so he concentrated on expanding the sequencer to produce polyphonic control patterns and added a Godwin string synth. To date, Ron has produced fourteen albums of solo electronic music, ranging from rock to more ambient experimental styles. Ron has continued to experiment and build stuff when he could. Since then analog has largely given way to digital. He has embraced and exploited much of this technology along the way but in some respects he remained "old school" as a lot of todays highly compressed digital earplug music is not exactly to his taste." - Vinyl-On-Demand.

"After nearly 40 years of silence, Harry Bertoias Sonambient label has been resurrected in order to release the best of Bertoias unheard recordings from his recently preserved archive of 1/4" tapes. "Clear Sounds" b/w "Perfetta" was cut straight from the original reels and is a true analog pressing. These two pieces were selected for their minimal, meditative and lush harmonic qualities; lacking in the abundance of dynamics and contrasts found on the original Sonambient records, these pieces show another approach to performance. Slow washes of shimmering metallic sculpture rustle thickly like the leaves of a white birch or tall grass in the summer sun. Gorgeous harmonics hover overhead, making audible measurements of the length and purity of Bertoias metal rod sculptures. Both Harry Bertoia and his brother Oreste composed extensively in the Sonambient barn deep in the woods of rural Pennsylvania where Harry kept over 100 Sonambient sculptures and gongs. The first Sonambient LP Bellissima Bellissima Bellissima / Nova, released in 1970, contains a Harry Bertoia composition on side A and an Oreste Bertoia composition on side B. As an homage to the original Sonambient LP, "Clear Sounds" is a Harry Bertoia piece from June 30, 1973 and "Perfetta" is an Oreste Bertoia piece from June 28, 1971. Harry Bertoia first came into artistic prominence in the late 1930s and his sculptural, ergomonic chairs were soon modernist furniture classics. Inspired by the resonant sounds emanating from metals as he worked them and encouraged by his brother Oreste, whose passion was music, Harry restored a fieldstone "Pennsylvania Dutch" barn as the home for this experiment in sounding sculptures which he had begun in the 1950s. Bertoia was an obsessive composer and relentless experimenter, often working late into the night and accumulating hundreds of tapes of his best performances; Oreste, too, would explore and record the sculpturess sounds during his annual visits to his brothers home in rural Pennsylvania. Over nearly twenty years, adding, culling and rearranging, Bertoia carefully selected nearly 100 harmonious pieces ranging in height from under a foot to more than fifteen feet. Learning by experimentation was common for Bertoia and he mastered the art of tape recording, turning the Sonambient barn into a sound studio with four overhead microphones hanging from the rafters in a square formation. He would experiment with overdubbing by performing along to previous recordings, constantly improving his methods while also honing his performance skills." - Sonambient.

Price: $94.00
“Harry Bertoias Complete Sonambient Collection features all 11 of Bertoias original records newly restored from their master tapes and housed in replica jackets. A heavy duty box, printed with metallic inks, holds the 11 discs as well as a 100-page book containing a lengthy historical essay, an interview with Harry Bertoia from the Smithsonian Archives of American Art, exclusive Sonambient-era material from the Bertoia archive, modern and archival photos of the Bertoia barn, and reflections on Bertoia from David Sefton, Tom Welsh, David Harrington (Kronos Quartet), and all three of Bertoias children. The Complete Sonambient Collection celebrates 100 years of Harry Bertoia in 2015, the centennial of his birth. In the late 1950s, Harry Bertoia (1915-1978), already a renowned American sculptor, began creating long-form, improvised pieces of music utilizing pure acoustic tones evoked from his sound sculptures. Around this time Bertoia came up with the term "Sonambient" to describe the music and environment created by his tonal sculptures and their lush harmonic overtones. In a renovated barn on his property deep in the Pennsylvania woods, Bertoia curated a harmonious selection of his sculptures and gongs, often recording his frequent, intuitive sound experiments using four overhead microphones and a ¼" tape recorder. Bertoia dedicated the last 20 years of his life to his Sonambient work and in 1970 he released the first Sonambient LP. In 1978, in the final months of his life, he selected recordings from his archive and produced ten more Sonambient records. He would not live long enough to see or hear these records himself. Bertoia died in 1978, at age 63, and was buried beneath a giant gong behind his Sonambient barn. Bertoias recordings are as much a celebration of sustained tones, slow decay, healing vibrations, and shimmering harmonics as Indian classical music, singing bowls, La Monte Young, or Benjamin Franklins glass armonica. Through these rich harmonics, pulsing tones, and pure gongs Bertoia was able to more clearly articulate his inner spirit than he could with sculpture alone -- a point he made himself many times in interview. His single greatest piece of art is the totality of his life, which is nearly impossible to measure but easy to feel. Important Records hopes that somehow this box set evokes some of the same sacred, personal feeling that one has in Bertoias barn.” - Important. "I dont hold onto terms like music and sculpture anymore. Those old distinctions have lost all their meaning." - Harry Bertoia, 1976.

Country: Italy
Price: $29.00
"Arpe Eolie is the first ever vinyl release of the works by Italian maestro Mario Bertoncini, relentless experimental composer, philosopher, artist and builder of sounds. The LP presents a selection of his compositions for Aeolian constructions: in the early 70s he started to produce sound aggregates, true "sound sculptures" based on the Aeolian sound principle. Amongst his more spectacular installations were "Vele", a massive Aeolian harp (more than seven meters high); "Venti" (winds), for 20 Aeolian sound generators and 40 performers; and "Chanson Pour Instrument À Vent", an assemblage for Aeolian harps, Aeolian gongs, and one performer. By their very nature these sound objects ("sound sculptures" that liberate the concept of sound form from time development) convey a sense of natural sounds beyond the grasp of composition and musician. Bertoncinis self-built harps and gongs are excited by blows of compressed air, or by the composers own breath, resulting in a musical blueprint that takes minimalist drone to a massive scale: the music unleashes itself. Theres no sense of a composers hand present. If at superficial levels they may sound like electronic music (long drones and swooshes of otherworldly sounds), at a close listening they reveal the intensity of a pure sound of air, far removed from both any artificial or measurable principle as well as from any casual or chance method of composition.

"One of the most adventurous composers and performers of the Italian avant garde scene, member of the Gruppo di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza, great performer of the music of John Cage, Bertoncini started in the early 70s to design and build incredibly complex and visually fascinating sound sculptures based on the aeolian sound principle. Amongst his more spectacular installations there were Vele, a massive Aeolian harp (more than 7 meters high); Venti (winds), for 20 Aeolian sound generators and 40 performers; and Chanson pour Instruments à Vent, an assemblage for Aeolian harps, Aeolian gongs, and one performer. His self-built harps and gongs are excited by blows of compressed air, or by the composers own breath, and the resulting sound is amplified through contact microphones. If at superficial levels they may sound like electronic music (long drones and swooshes of otherwordly sounds), at a close listening they reveal the intensity of a the pure and analogic sound of air, far removed from both any artificial or measurable principle as well as from any casual or chance method of composition, In fact, all the pieces are carefully composed and even notated. The CD presents the complete series of his works for Aeolian harps, from 1973 to more recent days. The accompanying 196-page book, in both English and Italian and rich with photos, is a rather profound dissertation on the Aeolian harps, their generation and meaning, as well as on experimental sound and avant-garde music in general. Written by the composer in the form of a Platonic dialog (between an old and rather bitter master and his young enthusiastic pupil), the book not only conveys a wealth of information on its subject matter, but it also renders perfectly the voice full of wit of one of the most personal and uncompromising composers of the present times." - Die Schachtel

Country: Spain
Price: $29.00
"When the bunch of filmmakers known as The Pattern Group (Roland Moreau, Georges Perdriaud and Jean Talansier) did Libra, their second movie, in 1973 they thought it would be a good idea to use bits from Pink Floyds Ummagumma and Atom Heart Mother to create its soundtrack. The movie, a 90-minute film with no dialogue, depicts the story of four youngsters living in communion with nature, an idyllic life that is drastically changed when a U.S. satellite crashes in the area and attracts the attention of journalists and TV crews that come to destroy the peace of the place. Obviously, the Pink Floyd bits had been used without permission, and The Pattern Group saw they needed an original soundtrack if they wanted the film released without legal trouble. They approached Jean-Michel Jarre, who declined the invitation to create the new soundtrack, but suggested instead Philippe Besombes. Besombes was a sound explorer who walked similar paths as other avant gardist young musicians from his generation such as Richard Pinhas (Heldon), Paul Putti (Pôle), Jean Louis Rizet or Jean-Michel Jarre himself (way before he became the famed wizard of commercial synth music as we know him today). Besombes was requested to produce a soundtrack in the style of those Pink Floyd tracks used. However he came up with that and more. Always aiming to find new ways of musical expression, he produced music that fitted perfectly in what the filmmakers needed but which was totally of his own. Surrounded by a cast of friends, he locked himself in the basement of his girlfriends father (who even ended up providing the financial funds for the project to reach an end!) and taped the amazing sounds that form the Libra soundtrack, a landmark in French electronic tripping music. The soundtrack was recorded in 1974, and it was released as a vinyl LP on the Tapioca label in 1975. It has since become a highly sought-after LP among collectors of electronic music worldwide, and gets its first vinyl reissue on Wah Wah in a deluxe edition that features a lavish 12" sized, six-page booklet with plenty of photographs from the era and information on the making of Libra in texts written by Philippe Besombes himself and Raul G.

"Formed in 1970 in Munich, Between was an international band devoted to explore the spaces existing between (hence the name) disparate musical currents: from ancient music to avant garde from Western classical to Eastern musics, from medieval to pop music in a fresh approach that perfectly fitted the experimentation dominating the early 70s German music scene. Whereas many of their contemporaries favoured the introduction of electronic elements, Between relied mostly on purely acoustic sounds, albeit so distorted they would pass as electronic. Roberto Detrees self-made motocello was a constant source of other-wordly sonorities which permeated many of the bands compositions. Add to this Peter-Michael Hamels Indian-influenced systemic organ minimalism and Cotch Blacks hypnotical percussion and youll get Betweens sound in a nut-shell. A mystical vision not removed from that of their contemporaries Popol Vuh that predated much of the new-age, meditation and world-music fusions that would blossom in the 80s. Originally released by Vertigo in 1973 and housed in a colourful psychedelic sleeve by Guntram Holdgrün, this is often regarded as Betweens most exotic and beautiful opus. A huge, majestic droning masterpiece with oriental nuances that might recall Popol Vuh, Fripp & Eno or Taj Mahal Travellers. Classic album from the early German 70s scene that deserves to be rediscovered by a wider audience. With Roberto C. Detrée (guitar, motocello, adapted harp), Robert Eliscu (oboe, oboe damore), Peter Michael Hamel (keyboards, vocals), Cotch Black (percussion) plus Duru Omson (bamboo flute, percussion, voice) and Fabian Arkus (electronics). Limited to 500 copies. Cover reproduces the original artwork by Guntram Holdgrün from the 1973 Vertigo issue. Insert with liner notes." -Wah Wah

Format: LP
Label: Taiga
Country: USA
Price: $23.00
"Bryce Beverlin II is a prolific multidisciplinary artist based in Minneapolis. His primary discipline is music -- specifically, freely-improvised vocals and percussion. Seizing Fate By The Throat is a distillation, the spirit of 15 years of spittle and brass vapors collected in this studio recording from March 14, 2010. Quietly tinkering with an array of metal, plastic and wooden objects, Beverlin draws the listener in only to reveal that he is unlocking the cage of a life-threatening animal. Suddenly: gnash, gurgle, grunt, the sounds of saliva smacking on hand-peeled lips. His performances overwhelm, frighten and suck the air out of the room, exorcising burden and frustration. This recording captures every detail in extreme close-up from inside the artists mouth to the tips of his fingers. Mastered by James Plotkin, cut direct to metal and pressed on 200 gram virgin vinyl, Seizing Fate By The Throat comes packaged in a full-color gloss varnished jacket with spot metallic printing and liner notes printed in the pocket. Limited to 300 copies only and co-released with Beverlins label Insides Music." - Taiga.

Bhaavitaah Bhuustasthah is Raymond Dijkstra (here on Mellotron, Moog IIIp, and percussion). "The following Text is not about the Content of the LP. Nor is it an Effort trying to explain what this LP is about. The LP is not about Memories, nor about Remembering any of the Events described below, despite the Title. The Title points at a pristine State of Being, while being in the Middle of a Cosmic Event. The Remembering of the Manifestation of the Cosmic Event, while being in the Middle of the very Manifestation. The Realization you recognize this. Even while you havent been aware of it before, nor did you ever knew it existed. It is the Moment you become Whole again. The text below is merely a fluctuating Series of earthly Events, a Series of Events which may or may not have happened in a Lifetime. ***** Returning to the great O... Daydreams saturated with Distortion Endless Circles of Circles in a Room: I was lying on my Bed. Motionless. At the same Time moving forward in Acceleration, in a Tunnel. Turbulence. At the End of the Tunnel there was always Freedom, floating in open Air… At the same Time in my Room, sparsely lit. Cosmic Chaos. I was working on a Painting; my Hands still dirty from the Day before. The Painting contained many Layers from being overpainted over and over again. My History contained in Layers of now unseen Visions. Like Memories. One Year Before I was in Front of the same Painting. In a different Room. In a different Town. I had been working on this Painting before… It was like painting my own Life over and over again. The Board was too small to just contain only a small Fraction… I woke up in Violence. Two Hands were holding me while two other Hands were punching me. Around me it was black and cold and I saw about thirty staring Faces around me. Apathetic, curious Gazes in a Mixture of Disgust and Bloodlust. Three old Friends were in between them. Their Faces were partly cowardish and ashamed for letting their Friend fall. When the Fight was over, they picked me up and dragged me Home. It was the last I saw from them. It is interesting how sharp you can see all the Details of an Event while your Consciousness is slipping away. In the Crowd I recognized a Girl who Id seen walking through Town regularly. The other Day I stumbled upon H. We had been very close Friends once in another Life. I still feel Friendship. Although our Friendship was lost a long Time ago. He only knew me the first 19 Years of my Life. The last ones of these were pretty hectic. It is funny to know when someone thinks of you, he sees an Image from Days long gone. I exist in many Realities. His Memory of Me is as real as is the current Me. Today I saw Me again. Upon Goodbye, we embraced. Again in another Life, me and A, my dear best Friend were walking through Town. A had committed Suicide a few Years later. He was only 13 when he had laid himself on the Tracks of a coming Train. The Universe ended then. His. And Ours as well. Just a Couple of Days back I was standing in front of his Grave for the first Time in 34 Years. His Mother was buried in the same Grave just two Years back. His Fathers Name was already engraved on the Stone, while still alive. I will always love you, A. My fragile Italian Friend with vibrant blue Eyes." - Le Souffleur.

This if the first book of my own so I am excited about it and hope you are as well. It was a simple process to create this book but I am glad to have it out in the world. It describes an era of development for me in my work. I hope to surpass this work by keeping on the creative path but its nice to have something to look back on. Art is for sharing not keeping to yourself. The more people your work can speak to the more powerful it becomes. Let it fall out of your hands and into the minds of others. You cant own it, you can only create it. "Hisham Akira Bharoocha is an artist currently based in Brooklyn, New York. He concentrates on creating music, visual art, and photography. Bharoocha has had solo exhibitions of his work at DAmelio Terras gallery in New York, as well as Vleeshal, a state run space in The Netherlands. He has been in numerous group exhibitions at galleries such as Deitch Projects, John Connelly Presents, and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. His work has been published in Art Forum, V, i-D, Flaunt, Tokion, Dossier to name a few. Hisham is well known in the underground music scene for being a founding member of the bands Lightning Bolt and Black Dice. After leaving Black Dice, he created Soft Circle, a solo project that allowed him a more personal exploration of his own musical interests.

Title: Antarctic Mosaic
Format: CDR
Label: Alga Marghen
Country: Italy
Price: $18.00
"Following the path opened by Frammenti, this new work represents the radicalization of the fragmentary approach in Maurizio Bianchis music. A musical composition resulting from the combination of various elements: Hetzian-waves, classical and electronic music. MB eagerly explores the immaculate spaces of the so-called frozen continent, the only one not contaminated by the human presence. The hostile surroundings and the prohibitive temperatures made the frozen paradise so stimulating and pure. Antarctica was an immense park frozen after the post-Flood events when unexpectedly and suddenly the temperatures felt of many centigrade degrees. This process is well emphasized in the Antartic track. On the other hand, in Mosaic the listener mind is projected into the future when, after the decontamination process of human presence on Earth, the frozen continent will become again a paradise. Again a strictly formal and structured work, two long and exhausting sound-collages made of little fragments, even more radical than his approach when MB was active under the name of Sacher-pelz. Also included is an excerpt from The Technological Nonsense, a text presenting the forthcoming book on Maurizio Bianchi activities soon to be issued by EEsT. As MB stated: Antarctic: sonorous infiltration in a deteriorated glacier and Mosaic: liquid resonances for asymmetric decodings. Are the glacial 1980s so far away?

"Mindblowing double LP reissue of Maurizio Bianchis impossible-to-find 1980 cassette, "decomposed" in October 1980 using cacophonelectronics and dedicated to the physical attraction to Sylvia Simonelli (September 1980/June 1981). "The genesis of this work is incredible. In the office where I worked, I had found a stamp with COMPRESA (in English, included) written over it, and so I came to the starting point for a new experimental work. Erasing before the second, fourth, sixth and eighth letter, so I obtained the title CMRS, on the other hand by deleting the first, third, fifth and seventh letter, I obtained the title OPEA, and it fascinated me. I had recently bought a synth KORG MS20 and so I began to experiment with it, but having only one output jack, I had to connect it to an AKAI cassette recorder that had two inputs, so the inevitable consequence was a mono recording (something that was strictly maintained, but divided on two channels). The result that followed was a cassette format C-90, with very grim and voluptuous electronic sounds, and it was distributed only to a very few friends and followers. All this happened back in October 1980. Then this recording became virtually untraceable, until a few years ago when I was in contact with Vittore Baroni who wrote me that he had a recording that I had given him several years previously, precisely CMRS/OPEA! So this work of historical value will surely make a lot of my genuine fans happy" --Maurizio Bianchi, February 7, 2015. Originally issued as private C-90 cassette in about seven or eight copies, and distributed only to very close friends. Mastered with supervision by M.B., Milano, 2015.

Title: Cycles
Format: CDR
Label: Alga Marghen
Country: Italy
Price: $19.00
"The terminal concept of Cycles is matured after the sharp Fragments and the Glacial Mosaics of MBs recent artistic reproduction, at the end of a triennial project, aiming to exacerbate the routine of prefab sound, the common and forgone sound created to be exclusively consumed by an amorphous and servile mass, sunken in a sullen entertainment. The approach here is totally new and the fragment is isolated and constantly repeated in order to build an aural minimal architecture. As MB states: Our whole existence is subordinated to intense and mathematical cycles, from the biological to the technological one, from the solar to the lunar one, from the historical to the legendary one. The cyclicity of the sonorous meanders of Cycles is, probably, the unique example of cyclic music. Particular and interatomic sonorous repercussions infinitely and distinctly repeating themselves, captured in a spectroscopy of atavic and coriaceous notes. And in the classic mood of the early 80s style, MB continues: The establishment will disagree. Such an experiment will be considered tedious and banal. What matters to me is not the ephemeral judgement of this sick and condemned reality. Finally the nine cycles included in this minimal work could be considered my appropriate epitaph. I have already entirely expressed my own artistic freedom and I wonder whether this might be nothig but the end of another cycle, in anxious expectation of the... eternal cycle. Due to the extreme nature of the material included, the reproduction of this edition has been limited to 200 copies only."- Alga Marghen

Needless to say, its not the most popular destination, but hey, it is there. And believe me, sooner or later that day will come when you will sit on the cusp and fix your eyes on the vast nothingness that is everything. But until that hour beckons, you may as well prepare yourself by spinning Das Platinzeitalter by Maurizio Bianchi. Dark ambient barely captures what is engraved in these grooves. Loops from the history of dust, ancient as the catacombs and spectral like the last rays of hope. Theres an eerie calmness to all four sides of this LP. Timeless and inevitable as the setting sun, as if this music has always been here. Which it has. It was up to Bianchi to find it. This recording captures the never-ending decay of beauty at the point when it is realized that resistance is futile and the metamorphosis has begun. There are not many musicians who can distill this essence: early Zoviet France, Nature Unveiled-era Current 93, Lustmord and Andrew Chalk/Mirror to name a few, but Das Platinzeitalter sounds like it comes from hallowed grounds, the once sacred is now profane. It forces your head to turn toward the abyss. Its up to you to open your eyes and look. Then the next thing you know, its over. Its all over. �??Dennis Yudt.

MB explains that this is not an utopical perspective but those feelings rise from the Revelator of all the secrets, the One who knows the future in advance and all the connected events. The Creator of the majestic universe and the One to whom all of us will give account when the final war of Har-Maghedon will break up on 60.. A.M. Will there be any survivor then?

Price: $17.00
"One year has passed since MB/Maurizio Bianchi decided to come back to the music arena with his very personal new sound exploration. Conceived in the same direction of the previous CD titled Colori , this new work found its bases in the revaluation of the events the started the Creation, when an intelligent and complex act of sublime love started our physical universe off, transposing them in form of 8 electronic compositions elaborated in a 2 year work. A darker atmosphere marks the background sounds giving to the whole program a more obscure and less easy impression while the more melodic traces fluctuate without direction in an empty space. MB has always worked in a very direct way following his true inspiration; he has devoted his music to the sincere listeners who will now immerse themselves in these sound waves and in the sea of primordial sonorities. The connection to his past recordings is to be found in this attitude and a reference to these feelings was already existing in the early 1980s as reported in some interviews and statements soon to be included in the full documentation of ArcheoMB boxset 2 (not a reference to the specific religious themes but anyway a more general idea of spiritual collapse and chancing). What could be interesting is to notice this continuity and consider the past and present works as a whole. Of course with a huge formal difference in the material sound approach." - EEST.

"Frammenti, i.e. fragments, is the new direction in Maurizio Bianchis music. An acoustic-bionic composition for electromagnetic waves and cyclic sonorities. Left now are all the indeterminate atmospheres gently fluctuating, in order to reach a more formal and structured work. Still dealing with the fragments of our memories made of joy and tribulations, sensations and awareness, aspirations and disappointments, with the carnal and the spiritual assistance. This new composition, quite as literally as the title suggests, consists of two long sound-collages reminding some of the techniques that MB was using in the late seventies under the name of Sacher-pelz. The music is not that brutal DIY intensity of analogic treatments, but more a digital version of nowadays oscillating clinic sonorities. As the author stated: "Those who will have the courage to listen to and investigate it, will remain mentally upright when confronted with the opposition of todays music -- which is so mechanical, hybrid, aseptic, narcotic, obsessive -- while in their heart nothing will be left but the principal fragment, which originated the sonorous universe: the sacredness of infinity!".

The first of the six tracks starts out with a nazi speech (not Adolf, but somebody else, I think Rudolf Hess, but identifying voices of nazi idiots is not my science) and quite quickly piercing electronics. Other nazi people also have their say. This could be MBs Weltanschauung record from a quarter of century ago.

Format: Double LP
Label: Marquis
Country: Italy
Price: $58.00
"At the beginning of the metabolic year 1980, after Maurizio Bianchi finished the embryonal experience as Sacher-Pelz, he decided to undertake the concrete-synchronized course as M.B., a long-lived acronym that will accompany him along his next way of neuro-synthetic experimenter. His first ever release was the private cassette-tape entitled Metcpyo/Blut. An hematopoietic experiment decomposed during the months of March and beginning of April 1980 at Mectpyo Studio. Proposed here in its original layout, this 2LP set holds intact, at a distance of almost three decades, the epicenter of M.B. sonorous universe, projected towards an euphonic cacophony. Mectpyo/Blut consists of two tragic sections imbued with synthetic chloroform: the 1st, Maidanek Bakterium / Musique Belzec, exhales an icy atmosphere conveying a sense of mystery and annihilation. The 2nd, Mutant Brain / Mord Banhof assembled the most disparate electro-hypnotic levitations into a vertical rationality, bold, morbid and haunting. Psychic-cerebral works, they seem to spring from a neuro-atomic continent, with unreal outlines, where its influence artificially expands the ankylotic tissues by environmental arthrosis. Edition limited to 300 copies in full colour gatefold sleeve, reproducing various graphic materials from the original cassette edition. Attention: this is the real thing, top powerful and modern in its integral length (and not a meaningless edited excerpt as other inexperienced labels in demand would have cheaply proposed you!)." -Marquis.

Maurizio Bianchi/M .B.: scourged martyrized pre-recorded sounds and tortured waves, with the persecutory interferations by Siegmar Fricke. Maurizio Bianchi is a non-musician active since August 1979. Coming from the punk movement in the mid-70s, M.B. became soon a pioneer in noise and industrial music. His music was characterized by uncompromising, noisy musique concrète abstractions, produced by turntable, loops, and tape-recorder. The sound he created at that time was the result of permanent frustration in life, love, religion, and politics, reflecting his inner soul and expressed his condition of being lost in a web of sounds and nightmares. After 14 years of mental purification the second M.B. phase began, characterized by a very spiritual approach. Siegmar Fricke, qualifying Bianchis second-phase works as "Pharmakustik," shares the same fascination for clinical sound abstractions and electronic modulations as M.B., and has done several collaborations with him. Bianchi has worked with various other artists including Aube, Telepherique, Nimh, and Stefano Gentile. Maurizio Bianchis main inspiration remains human alienation, and his goal is to awaken sleeping consciences." - Rotorelief.

"While producing the second ArcheoMB boxset (including the CD edition of 5 original M.B. LP records from the early 1980s: Das Testament; Endometrio; Carcinosi; The Plain Truth and Armaghedon), the documentation staff working on the Maurizio Bianchi reprint series came across a very strange and peculiar object. It was a private tape dating back from 1980, never mentioned in official discographies and given only to close friends (this copy actually coming from the archive of mail-artist Vittore Baroni). The music was introducing a unique approach in MB sound. It was soon evident that this tape marked the passage from the Sacher-pelz concrete techniques to the new M.B. universe; the loop brutal approach applied to poor & pure electronic sounds and concrete material, so typical in Sacher -pelzv projects (see full documenation presented in Mutation for a Continuity 4CD boxset), was here pushed to its extreme consequences and used to manipulate the soundtrack of the famous movie by Stanley Kubrick, A Clockwork Orange (it is whispered that some Kraftwerk records also suffered the same treatment, but evidences of this were never found). In the same days, M.B. also produced his first power electronic tapes titled Cold, Voyeur and the epic double C90 Mectpyo Blut which set the new orientation to all his following works. M.B. plays A Clockwork Orange was a unique moment in Maurizio Bianchi sonic researches and is made now available for the very first time; the first LP record by M.B. isued in about 20 years. Due to the specific kind of material reproduced it was decided with M.B. to issue these historical recordings in an edition limited to 300 copies only." - Marquis.

Format: LP

Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Maurizio Bianchis 1981 Symphony For a Genocide LP is the artists most well known work, widely recognized as a classic of early industrial music. A year and a half after its initial release on vinyl in a limited edition of 227 copies, the album was reissued on cassette by the Broken Flag label. It was at this time that Bianchi created an entirely new recording drawn from the audio of the original LP. Entitled S.F.A.G. 81 and issued in January 1983 as a companion to the Symphony For a Genocide cassette release, it was a radically different work comprised solely of two extended, side-long tracks. Bianchi had already began to evolve from the harsh and primitive attack of his earliest releases toward a more desolate, introspective sound exemplified by The Plain Truth and Armaghedon albums; S.F.A.G. 81 lands somewhere in between these two approaches. Remnants of the relentless mechanical rhythms and synthesizer churn of the original Symphony remain, but it is as though one were listening to them from a distance, lost in the midst of a massive blizzard. Strains of recognizable sound drift in and out of earshot like hallucinations, echoing across the bleak stretches of grayed-out sound. S.F.A.G. 81 has been re-released (often in abridged form) on cassette and CD several times over the years, and an excerpt appeared on one LP side of Vinyl On Demands massive five-disc Broken Flag retrospective box set; this reissue marks the first time ever the complete album has been available on vinyl. Remastered and fully authorized, it comes packaged in thick tip-on jackets with artwork by longtime Bianchi collaborator Siegmar Fricke. One-time pressing of 500 copies." - Recursion.

"M.B., aka Maurizio Bianchi, has enjoyed a deserved renaissance in recent times as a new generation discovers his charred brand of industrial noise, particularly the artists formative early 80s period before he disappeared in pursuit of religion. In the ensuing years, many of these early records became prized collector objects, garnering hundreds of dollars -- if they could even be found. Bianchi has since returned to creating music and many of those pricey releases have been re-issued on vinyl except for whats widely considered to be his seminal work from that time, Symphony for a Genocide. Weird Forest is proud to rectify this situation. To the uninitiated, Symphony may sound like so much noise with its unyielding factory-of-death buzzsaw sound making Throbbing Gristles industrial music almost top-40 by comparison. But buried underneath the unrelenting martial rhythms and analog siren sounds is a great deal of musicality, including synth melodies and basic chord progressions. Bianchi uses all these elements at his disposal to create a gripping audio portrait of the grim subject matter. Re-issue is strictly limited to 500 copies and is a near-exact reproduction of the original Sterile Records release, including hand-stamped labels and inserts just like the 1981 issue." -Weird Forest

"Originally released in 1981. "The moral of this work is: The past punishment is the inevitable blindness of the present. Death camps were established through the process of dehumanized engineering, to destroy the will of the individual, and to create industrialisation of death. The modern parallel is to override the individual human choice through mass-media that established the city of death, in which marketing has become synonymous with mass destruction. A pathetic symphony for both is inevitable. To prevent physical destruction of the inner sound, I accomplished the noisy dignity of an electronic apparatus with the aim of prosecuting the masses minds that massacre and organize new dehumanization. Symphony for a Genocide is a pseudo-symphonic legislation that make no compromises with the modern musical de-evolution" --Maurizio Bianchi. "Battle green and black" vinyl.

Country: Netherlands
Price: $20.00
"Staying on the Mediterranean coast for their third release, Music From Memory this time shift their attention to the work of Mallorcan musician Joan Bibiloni. Primarily a guitarist, Bibiloni was creating music at an early age, releasing his first single at the tender age of 15. In his 20s he formed Spanish prog-rock outfits Zebra and Euterpe, where he would meet Pepe Milan, the two of them becoming the bluesy folk duo Milan & Bibiloni. Bibiloni himself would later go on to play with a number of luminary musicians such as Larry Coryell, Daevid Allen and John Cage, to name but a few. In 1982, Bibiloni set up his own label Blau in order to highlight the much-overlooked work of musicians not only on his home island of Mallorca but across the Balearic Islands. In doing so he created a platform not only for local talent but also for his own music to breathe a new life, much influenced by the landscape and life that surrounds the islands. While Bibilonis first solo releases on his Blau imprint have stronger echoes of the contemporary jazz fusion of the time, it is on the album known as Una Vida Llarga I Tranquila where Bibiloni really began to experiment with new sounds and technologies; fusing tape loops, drum computers and synthesizers. Taking these more electronic-infused works as a departure point for the compilation and drawing on material from across his following five albums, El Sur sets out to highlight Joan Bibilonis unique ambient fusion and sun-drenched Adriatic beach-boogie." - Music From Memory.

Sometimes electric guitar lines weevil hauntingly in the aether while acoustics strum quietly up front. At other points, muted chimes of freedom push against vocals and cloppety rhythms that recall White Noises "Making Love Without Sound." Still others vibe early Comus or The Third Ear Band. In all, the scent of smoke hangs as heavy over this record as any weve heard. And friend, weve heard a few. Edition of 500; includes download code." -Feeding Tube.

Title: Crashes on the Platinum Planet
Format: LP
Label: Almost Ready
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Big Dipper Crashes on the Platinum Planet is the latest, and perhaps boldest, excursion into the perilous realm of Astronomy Pop by veteran indie-rockers BIG DIPPER. Inspired by a triumphant reunion tour in support of Merge Records 2008 3-disc retrospective Supercluster: The Big Dipper Anthology, the band returned from the stratosphere with a stellar collection of brand new songs. Just a few weeks after touring, Big Dipper began recording the new material in GARY WALEIKs top-secret Command Module studio. The album boasts cover art by Guided By Voices main-man ROB POLLARD, a huge Big Dipper fan (Pollard rates them the 20th greatest band in rock history, #19 being T. Rex!). The recording line-up consists of guitarist/vocalist BILL GOFFRIER, drummer/vocalist JEFF OLIPHANT, late-era Dipper alum TOM BREWITT on bass and the aforementioned vocalist/multi-instrumentalist/producer Waleik, with special guest appearances by Commander FRANK BORMAN and Command Module Pilot JIM LOVELL of the Apollo 8 Mission as well as some of the Dippers offspring. The discs 12 songs shimmer with Big Dippers trademark sound: twin vocals, ethereal harmonies, dynamic guitar arrangements by Goffrier and Waleik (dubbed by some a "two-headed guitar monster"), Oliphants powerful drumming and Brewitts melodic bass playing. But longtime fans may also be surprised at how easily Dipper has stretched its own boundaries." - Almost Ready.

"Second vinyl LP by this Brooklyn/Philadelphia trio, with guitarist Paco Cathcart (The Cradle, Sweet Baby Jesus, Shimmer) who has long worked in the studio with Palberta. The other players are Mac Kelly(Suspekt) and Hugo Stanley (Palm). Together they constitute a bizzaro world power trio, whose sound swings between the tenseness of math-rock and the aggressive slackness of bedroom experimentalism. Some of what they do reminds us of Fat Worm of Error at their most hardy, but thats just a part of the whole. What Big Neck Police create is almost a collage of textures as much as a suite of songs. But then, I suppose you could say the same of Mars. Amps buzz, drums clonk, guitars make noises like squirrels and vocals weave through the air as though they were wearing stirrups. Its enough to make you yearn for the days when they still raced horses on the ghetto streets of Philly. This is the sound of young gentlemen in a panic. Enjoy it at your leisure." - Byron Coley, 2016. Edition of 300.

Alex Craig and Ian Drennan started Big Troubles in the summer of 2009 after playing in many bands together since early adolescence. The songs on this EP were some of the first the band recorded that summer in Ians basement, surrounded by guitars, a multitude of pedals, a drum machine, and a 4-track. This 7" is a chunk of overwhelmingly woozy guitar pop that transcends the thinness of most lo-fi music of this era.

Parental advisory stickers not included." With glossy full-color insert and download coupon. "This immense new album from Big Troubles follows on from a great four-song EP for the Olde English Spelling Bee singles club, featuring the New Jersey fuzz-pop project bejewelled with pop hooks and spurts of brain-scorching noise. Theres an abundance of blistering C86-style pop nuggets on here, from the distortion-surfing Bite Yr Tongue to the euphorically hooked-up Freudian Slips. Theres an overwhelmingly fizzy, treble-some recording style here which imbues the whole thing with a hazy, nostalgic quality that reminds us of everything from My Bloody Valentine to The Jesus and Mary Chain to Dinosaur Jr at their very peak -- making for one of the standout lo-fi pop records of the year bar none.

"On Mono/Stereo, FRED BIGOTs early "Panasonic meets rockabilly" sides are compiled and sequenced such that you cant help but mistake it for a 21th century version of KLFs "Chill Out"-except the country and Elvis references have been replaced by things like the sounds of attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion and C-beams that glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. You know, shit youd read about in a Samuel Delany book or something. Culled from two 12-inches of murky, minimalist proto-Schaeffel-beat, this CD also features rare outtakes from the full spectrum of heaviness. T-Rex-like rock-groove head-nod decadence expands the notion of stereo separation so far that the Memorex dude on the couch would be reduced to a puddle of flesh. How do you explain this stuff?

Title: Accumulation
Format: 7"
Label: Xerox Musik
Country: UK
Price: $8.00
"Heaps of noise and feedback, insistent arrhythmic pounding, and desperate hot screams coalesce into a textured, deeply layered wall of sound that is more compelling than any of its more-or-less revolting constituent parts on this new 7-inch by BILLY BAO. The concept behind the record is accumulation, as each track (uniformly 1 minute per track) adds an additional element--noise, voices, instruments. Accumulation is the engine of capitalism, and this record, which transforms accumulation into a sound, shows it to be as unpretty as one might expect. Perhaps the sound is meant to evoke the non-stop, bursting-at-the-seams chaos and disorder of Lagos, the place Billy tells us he began his journey. But of course no one, it is said, begins in Lagos; its a place where people end up. Its a city that accumulates people and detritus, or people as detritus. If Billy managed to escape, it was only physically--because judging by this record, his spirit remains in the clinking, scrounging fetters of the megapolis. Less metallic than the recent 10-inch, though still rather throbbing, this 7-inch is one of those uncommon records that you put on either to start or end a party, depending on what kind of party it is.

Born and raised on the unstable streets of Lagos, Nigeria before relocating to the alleyways of a then-recently freed Bilboa, Spain, Billy Bao is a rough, dangerous, borderline example of societys woes turned against itself, of cultural repression made flesh, as it foments into a madness both gleeful and destructive. Befriended by world-renowned noise guitarist MATTIN, the two men formed a personal alliance through the community of punk rock and the blunt-force politics therein. Every musical action Bao makes is a statement of political and personal intent, of the persecution that boils within him, and yet, across his previous releases any notions of political punk rock of the tired, insipid Anglicized version are brutally choked out. Mattins musical backdrops swing with the force of Baos vocal delivery to rattling, devastating effect." - Parts Unknown.

Thats what these sort of things are usually called, when references are anything but immediate: in the feeling, hearing, and seeing, especially by many. Even more troubling, when the accustomed in us gets ajar... We lack articulation of the seemingly unfamiliar! Even at that, I think the most charitable review of this live electronic exploration will suggest the four sections bordering on insanity. How else? Even when not a few self-styled patriots were booking their flights out of the country, with an election looming to signal the end of a nation, and a band of modern day faith-heads detonating grenades in every other street corner, two dreamers swim against the currents and sneak through the lagoon into the country collecting inputs of derelict art; of garbage can noise; of hooting; honking horns on screeching brakes squelching tar; rackety generator booms? For an imagined program! Whats that? Who, what do these doods think theyre doing with Lagos?! Ill call it rebirth. That simple. How to find a centre here? The output? The hum-drum of the streets daily accent compels the sense of the immediate, the terrestrial; and then those primitive, primeval-seeming echoes of the earliest beginnings of the big bang and its wavesound simultaneously releasing Sun Ras reverb sensation of end time! This should not be danceable but these guys are suggesting the possibility of rhythm in the inchoate. Believe me, you cant miss the Lagos Faaji, Sakara flow, Awurebe, Afrobeat slices; its jazz, highlife/Euro-Afro funk/rock/rap and seedy night echoes too. But in their otherworldly dimension.

"The Nigerian monstrosity that is Billy Bao returns in agony. Bleeding. Pointing a colossal black finger at global capitalism, regular music, non-music and anti-music, at the food crisis of 2008, the moribund spirit of 1968, and especially at you, the record buyer, who maybe "really dug" his first LP, Dialectics of Shit, and will come back for more, or perhaps "heard a lot about him" and his bandmate Mattin in the "blogosphere" or even in print media (ooh!) (whatever that is), and are "curious to finally hear his music" because you find the stories "interesting" and this is even heavier and more fucked up than The Brainbombs at their heaviest and most fuckeduppednest, and you "get it," right? Yeah! Or wait, let me guess, you got the record for free along with this press release because youre an influential but too-modest-to-admit-it journalist or music critic or program director and so far youve had something to say about Billy, or not, and this is a wonderful opportunity for you to comment upon the work of someone whose primary subject is his own work, so that you can enter into a "dialogue" with "him," or maybe "introduce new audiences" -- maybe even some "kids"! Hooray for the kids! -- to some "awesome" new sounds that "engage the listener in a perceptual tug of war, a struggle to make sense of the unnatural experience of playing audience member to someone elses performer" -- or even better, outsmart Billy, outsmart this record, and call it out as bullshit or play along and pretend that youre in on some "joke" that, lets be honest, you sometimes suspect you dont really get yourself. It dont matter! Were all human beings here, except for those of us who arent, and none of us is more human than Billy. What matters is the way Alberto Lopez pounds the drums, the way Xabier Erkizia rips up the guitar, Mattin and Xabis computer dicking, and Billy right in the middle of it, channeling a desperation so total its embarrassing. This LP is so angry the songs dont even have titles. Some of em are really long, some are really short, but theyre all pretty goddamn infuriating, as they oughta be. The Dialectics of Shit LP and the Accumulation 7" didnt go out of print as quickly as any of us would have hoped, but at least the 10" on SS and the seminal and almost-legendary Bilbos Incinerator EP that started everyone puckering their cornholes are now almost impossible to get. May 08 is actually surprising, which is pretty goddamn surprising, because where do you go after those first four platters, honestly? Well, fuck, you make a record thats somehow noisier than all of those, more tweaked and fucked-with and digitally distorted than anything before it, crammed with grotesque and sublime samples from the noise of yesteryear: Nono, Kuti, Whitehouse, Brainbombs, and Billy, Billy Bao. What? What do you want? Look at the kindsa shit people said about Bilbos Incinerator: "Nigerias answer to Stickmen With Rayguns-era Bobby Soxx -- abhorrent pummeling scuzzrock that is [...]extremely harrowing." -Art for Spastics "He might not wallow in the same cesspool as Bobby Soxx, but Billy Bao has the shine." -Siltblog "Billy Bao is identical to Bobby Soxx of Stickmen With Rayguns in every conceivable way." - Acapulco Dance Party "Punishingly prescient. Vocals sound like the second coming of Kickboy Face, and this as a whole comes off as a terrifyingly real example of what human beings are capable of if pushed far enough. The real world equivalent to the Pissed Jeans 7�?�. An important record." - Dusted Magazine Wow!!! Punishingly prescient!!! Important!!! And whattabout Dialectics of Shit? That one came out on Parts Unkown too! "One heckuva magnificent achievement. " -The Wire "Difficult and entertaining, there is nothing here that would ever be mistaken for easy listening. Punk + experimental + challenging what you think an album should sound like." - Scott Sorianos Webtoons "When Billy Bao isnt making me blow nonexistent fluff off my needle, theyre swamping my stereo with a sickly twenty-generations-removed blues vomit. Its violently dissociative in the most life-affirming way." - Z-Gun It should be pretty goddamn clear to you why you want and need to purchase this record. If you dont care about "enjoying" May 08 the way the artists "intended," go download the music for free and completely miss out on the experience of listening to this record on your turntable in "glorious" analogue sound while fixing your gaze on the epic violence of Billys 12 x 12 cover artwork.

Title: Urban Disease
Format: LP
Label: Pan
Country: UK
Price: $27.00
2010 release. "Urban Disease is the new radical work by Billy Bao, Mattin, Taku Unami, Tim Barnes, Barry Weisblat and Margarida Garcia. Its important to remember that before Mattin and anarchism ruined his life, Billy Bao was a bit of a troubadour who accompanied himself on acoustic guitar and warbled wild songs of protest in his native Nigerian patois. This new album, his third on vinyl, finds Billy in a transitional phase toward the end of 2006, before the gaztetxes of Bilbao burrowed into his marrow, before Mattin became the Merle to his G.G., before Billy turned into herpes sore in the mouth of global capitalism. "Billy doesnt believe in hypnagogia," were told, "because he always sleeps with one eye open, and when he dreams, all he sees is AIDS denialists, German shepherds, and soldiers disguised as UN peacekeepers." Before Taku Unami fucked it up, this session found Bao relaxed and in high spirits as he conducted a pickup band of itinerant improvisers through a song-by-song cover of Amon Düüls Psychedelic Underground. Margarida Garcia lent her astounding skill and highly personal idiom on the electric double-bass, in her hands an instrument with the tension of string on wood and the disruptive potential of a crackle box. Barry Weisblat, meanwhile, teased out a century of drone from a Cornell lunchbox of filament and circuitry. Who better to play drums and percussion than the sainted Tim Barnes? Mattin, thumb and forefinger compulsively pinching or stroking his Hitler mustache after every take, funneled Billys malaise through laptop, percussion, and folk instrumentation. There was even, astonishingly, a womens choir on hand, eerily filling out the atmosphere with wordless vocals and incantations. But this is after, and the result is a fragmentary, extremely loud hippie jam session punctuated by stretches of uneasy silence and scrape. The Lp is mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at D&M, in a limited edition of 500 copies, pressed on 140g vinyl and comes in a poly-lined inner sleeve. It is packaged in a pro-press jacket which itself is housed in a silk screened pvc sleeve with original artwork by New York artist HENRY FLYNT." - Pan.

A 1981 junket to Barcelona found Bing Selfish, Amos a/k/a Jim Whelton, Chris Gray, Rob Storey, and Milk From Cheltenham recording three tracks for a compilation LP, Domestic Sampler - UMYU, alongside the once-and-future stars of the Barcelona underground. Bing and Joe Torres (a/k/a Victor Lounge of Milk From Cheltenham) stayed on, and a few months later welcomed back Rob, Chris and Rodrigo Lodwick to tape an Amos & Sara LP. The only recordings to come of this adventure, however, were the five Bing Selfish-led tracks on Selfish Works. The 12" features those in boldface above, plus Rita Chuli (who married Lepke Buchwalter and had a cassette on her own), Gabriel – who’d played sax on the MfC track for UMYU, and Enric Villalba (a/k/a Victor Nubla), one of the locals whod helped organize UMYU. Selfish Works was pressed back in London through Robs Noise Method label, although its officially on Bings own El Frenzy imprint. Hardcore Messthetics/D.I.Y. fans will appreciate that most of the songs are introduced by fragments from the traditional Spanish music tape reels over which they were recording… As with the Hot Club Murphy 12", the original jackets were screened as needed: two basic designs were used, and both were modified as the screens degenerated.

"After 5 years of extensive and careful work, the new and much anticipated CD by this extraordinary collective, who have no parallels, no rivals and no peers, is at last complete. Its a dense and indescribable orchestration of electric and acoustic guitars, clavioline, trumpet, Hammond organ, micromoog, biolmellodrone, electric and acoustic violins, bass, mandolin, accordion, piano, rubab, kit percussion and sometimes voice, layered and radically processed in the unique Biota manner. There is a leitmotif of folk elements in this piece that emerge from the roiling, swirling quicksand of sound we now expect from Biota, with texts by WB Yeats and snatches, arrangements and influences floating by way of Christy Moore, June Tabor, Judy Collins, Sandy Denny, Bert Jansch, the Bothy Band and older traditional sources. Biota craft sonic worlds that relate to, but are not built like, the music with which we are familiar; for them time is a continuum rather than a sequence of events; a simultaneous present in which past and future possibilities exist conterminously. With a 24 page full colour art portfolio from the Biota collective." - Recommended.

Country: UK
Price: $18.00
"Six years in the making, this is the sixth CD released by ReR from the visual/sonic art group Biota. Unique in their history and method, Biota painstakingly construct complex, organic structures that mix extensive studio processing and musique concrète techniques, with a highly eclectic orchestra of acoustic and electronic resources: from kit drums, through medieval winds, strings and barrel organs, to early experimental electronic instruments. Their works are always performance driven and interleaved with successive stages of lamination, imbrication of parts, and radical pre- and post-processing. As the title suggests, in this new work a portion of a cycle -- a repeating segment of time -- is explored. We employed repeating and overlapping motifs of different lengths, allowing their staggered interaction to produce varying degrees of harmonization, dissonance, masking and reinforcement. Unpredictability of outcome was furthered by electronic processing -- both manual and automated, random and predetermined -- and by the appearance, taken out of context, of unrelated passages taken from earlier projects. Real-time performers had to interact with this instability as they constructed their contributions, and later as they gave form to the final composition. Although there are elements of chance at work in the process, the eventual architecture is intentional, and carefully worked. Mixing was done by hand and without the aid of computers, then the composition was assembled and integrated digitally. --William Sharp, Biota. The interaction of staggered, overlapping elements reveals a changeable truth about the whole as the parts variously harmonize or dissent; reinforce or cloak one another in their unfolding. The project is, at heart, about uncertainty. Players encounter the shifting interplay between previously recorded parts juxtaposed with instrumental snippets -- out of context -- introduced from the groups archives. Electronic processing programs are employed to apply semi-random and semi-intentional alterations to the proceedings." - Recommended

"Biota was founded in 1979 in Fort Collins, Colorado, as the Mnemonist Orchestra. Over the years, the Mnemonist Orchestra developed into Biota (the musical contingent) and Mnemonists (the visual contingent). Both Biota and Mnemonists work as one on productions of musical and visual components. The group has released nine LPs, one EP, and four CDs on both their own Dys label and Recommended Records UK. Heard on this CD is the first adaption of their studio-based recording techniques since 1981, as presented at Montreal Musiques Actuelles -- New Music America 1990. For their live performance they composed a set of material specifically for the concert and virtually relocated their studio to the stage to properly recreate it. Nine musicians playing only acoustic instruments (aside from electric guitar) were heard natural and unamplified from the stage while extensive electronic processing, heard through the speakers, rendered radical tonal, timbral and temporal modification creating an incredibly unique and strange sound world. Added to this, the two-dimensional graphic work that Mnenomists have become so renowned for was transformed into stunning video projections -- beautiful examples of which are now included in the full color booklet accompanying this CD." - Anomalous.

Format: LP

Price: $19.00
"Bird Show Band documents Bird Shows new collaborative spirit and stands as the culmination of Ben Vidas Chicago-based work, featuring a whos who of the citys improvisational luminaries, including Josh Abrams, Jim Baker, Dan Bitney and John Herndon. The improvisatory feel of the Bird Show Band sessions function as Vidas paean to the Windy City. Rather than another Bird Show release that involves guest accompaniment on select tracks, Vida conceived of these recordings as a foray into session playing, tracking the entire album over just two days. While Herndon and Bitneys percussion invokes German psych, progressive rock, and jazz idioms, Vidas synth-based experiments, here accompanied by Jim Bakers ARP 2600, provide the first indication of his recent musical preoccupations, an interest that relies heavily on the Moog and his own fluid, lyrical melodic lines. If you have had the luck of catching Bird Show or Ben Vida perform live over the last few years, you have witnessed the centrality he now gives to the Moog and one-touch patchwork, experimental forays that point to Europe and the mid-century avant-garde, especially the Cologne-based innovations of Stockhausen and his many students during the late 1960s and early 1970s. Regardless of this description, Bird Show Band is more than a mere intellectual exercise and the sessions balance brain with musical brawn in ways that Vida has yet to achieve on his previous outings." - Amish.

But ya get near pronouncements like "Free or The Groundhogs as seen in the busted mirror mosaic of Japanese underground psych" and a lil balloon of acid anxiety busts in yer gut. Insufficient. This aint just about shred and dread; this is about sweat and spit and busted bottles. This is about volume--meaning both quantity AND decibels. It takes a lot for many of us to sit still for side-long live tracks, so I suggest you dethrone that ass and break some valuables when the evil busts start rollin out like smoke from Sleeps van; its only natural.

"Not ones to usually hit the road, Birds of Maya stormed the Midwest in May, and if you checked their merch table, this limited and unassuming little single was probably laying right next to Ready to Howl. ⿿Regulation⿝ is a heavy blues jam in the classic Birds of Maya style, but its special in that local man-about-town Harmonica Dan sits in on their session (Ill give you one guess what he plays). Dan doesnt mess around, he just takes off his backpack, cracks open a tallboy and blows harder than an office fan, psychically connected to Birds of Maya and the bluesy groove they stand for. Its pretty smoking and serves as an excellent petition to recruit him as a full-time member. The untitled b-side is sweet (a nice pairing to the savory a-side), starting off with some psychedelic swirl and guitar noodling, almost veering into art-drone territory (not that its a bad thing), but just as Im ready to put on my Keiji Haino wig and smoke a clove, it kicks right back into a standard Birds of Maya stoner riff with Harmonica Dan riding the rails once more.

"Its been said that Volume 1 is possibly the best rock release to come out of Philadelphia ever. While low on recording budget, attitude and pretension, BIRDS OF MAYA is high on stolen riffs and an energetic execution seldom seen outside of a Sunday ruling by Seamus McCaffery. Whether they are mangling riffs or stepping way out for fried boogie solos Birds of Maya oozes a dark chunky sludge with elements from all the colors of the classic rock rainbow. Do they really sound like "a GG Allin demo played through a megaphone?" Its a fair description and its certainly colorful, but it leaves out an awful lot. They are loud and they are chaotic, but they have way more groove than GG Allin could have ever imagined." - Holy Mountain"Birds of Maya did what countless garage rock geeks try and fail at: dust off 1968 and bring it back to life without making it look like museum piece. Bringing on the best of 60s power trios like Hendrix and Cream, a whiff of Blue Cheers bongwater, Black Sabbaths bass heavy paranoia, and Stooges bum-out, they were sloppy in all the right places. The jamming never got tired and held everyones rapt attention." -phawker.com

Price: $32.00
2 discs, one CD, one DVD. First ever reissue of this cult album from 1975, on the famous Nurse With Wound List! "Jean-Jacques Birge and Francis Gorge began to play together in 1970 and produced the first rock concert of their high school, at LycŽe Claude Bernard in Paris. Gorge was composing the music and playing the guitar, Birge was writing the words and singing. Defense de was their first album, before founding Un Drame Musical Instantane, in 1976, with Bernard Vitet. Two bonus tracks were intended to be index 2 and 4 before Birge and Gorge met Shiroc a few weeks later. These two tracks were replaced with new tracks recorded with Shiroc and so they were forgotten until today. The four initial pieces were recorded in the family apartment of Sebastien Bernard, a free jazz producer, where his father kept a lot of beautiful instruments (a pipe organ, an electric piano, a xylophone, a cello, etc.) and a 8-track tape recorder. Antoine Duvernet, another schoolmate who was playing with Urban Sax at that time, passed by on a sunny afternoon and added the tenor sax parts. The two new pieces with Shiroc and Bucchi were recorded live in studio four months later. During the following year, Birge and Gorge played a lot of concerts as a trio with Shiroc, and sometimes as a quartet with Gilles Rollet (also on percussion). All their repertoire was recorded and it will be included on the DVD as June Sessions (Over 6 hours of music). Over the years, the LP Defense de became a cult object people would buy a fortune, as well as appearing on the Nurse With Wound famous holly recordings list. So we are very pleased to have it finally available as a CD, specially with the four previously un-issued bonus tracks which were discovered recently in the Drames archives. The band took it from this point to become Un Drame Musical Instantane. Un D.M.I (in short) who is considered to be one of the top avant-garde / experimental acts ever to emerge from France and the entire world as well. The audio CD will include the complete Defense De LP plus 4 bonus tracks (approx 80 minutes of music in total). The DVD will include the experimental movie La Nuit Du Phoque made by Jean-Jacques Birge and Bernard Mollerat in 1974. The movie is a mix between avant-garde French movie and experimental ambience which takes the viewer back in time to 1974. The second part of the DVD will include June Sessions which are very long pieces made by the trio (or quartet at times). Total of about 7 hours of music and 40 minutes movie in a double CD & DVD set." - MIO.

"First ever vinyl reissue of this cult album from 1975. Défense de was the first album of Jean-Jacques Birgé and Francis Gorgé, before founding Un Drame Musical Instantane with Bernard Vitet in 1976. They had started to play together while at high school, and on their debut LP they were joined by percussionist Shiroc (who also played in Speed Limit). The albums four tracks were recorded in the family apartment of free jazz producer Sebastien Bernard, who had several nice instruments belonging to his father, like a pipe organ, an electric piano, a xylophone and a cello, a.o. The songs were taped on an 8-track recorder and also feature Antoine Duvernet from Urban Sax, who added tenor sax. Shiroc and pianist Jean-Louis Bucchi (also from Speed Limit) joined the duo some months later and the songs they feature in were recorded live in studio. Birgé and Gorgé gigged as a trio with Shiroc, sometimes with the addition of Gilles Rollet on further percussion. The resulting sounds were released on the June Sessions DVD (included as a free bonus on this LP). Along with June Sessions the DVD also contains La nuit du phoque, an experimental avant-garde movie made by Birgé and Bernard Mollerat in 1974. Défense de has become a cult LP that sells for a small fortune, especially since its interest as a landmark of early French avantgarde/experimental/synth music was noted on the famous Nurse With Wound list. Fauni Gena brings this legendary piece of musical history back to vinyl life on a top class reissue that comes complete with liner notes written by Jean-Jacques Birgé himself, plus the bonus DVD including almost six hours of extra music and videos." -Fauni Gena.

"With the western worlds recent access to the Ethiopian music of the 1970s, the focus has been almost solely on the Amhara music of Addis Ababa.

Ali Birra, the biggest Oromo star and a hero to his people was so beloved that he did break into the Amhara dominated record market. Learning how to play the guitar using the tuning for an oud, the sound is as much Arabic as Ethiopian. After two years singing in the Imperial Body Guard Band alongside Mahmoud Ahmed and Tilahun Gessesse, and a brief hiatus from music, he made these recordings backed up by the Aduu Birra Band. With a prevalent joy and catchy sing along style, Ali sings songs of love, misery, and beating the oppressor.

The sonic landscapes presented here find their origins in Tibet, and are heavily inspired by Tibetan Buddhism -- specifically the body of teachings known as Dzogchen. Many of the musical ideas for this project were literally derived from dreams the night before they were created. The remaining ideas were formed centuries ago. Sir Richard Bishop plays acoustic guitar throughout. Often detuned, bowed, and beaten, the guitar was "treated" by Oliphant during the live recording process. SRB also provided audio from field recordings he captured in India. WDO used a variety of computer software with a midi controller to create all the other sounds.

"Official DVD release of Sir Richard Bishops cracked movie God Damn Religion. First edition comes with a bonus audio CD of the quasi soundtrack Elektronika Demonika, originally issued by Locust as a vinyl-only escapade in 2006. For centuries, man has used organized religion to control the hearts and minds (not to mention the pocketbooks) of the ignorant masses. Well, Richard Bishop has decided he would like a piece of the action. This film is a diabolical experiment in hypnotic mind control - a phantasmagoric presentation of demonic and divine imagery, meticulously assembled and designed to put the viewer into an altered state of darkened awareness. Includes original music from Elektronika Demonika, as well as unreleased material. If you ever wanted to go to hell and back, this film will get you halfway there. Some viewers may find the imagery used in this film to be disturbing, but thats the idea. Contains some strong sexual content (as all true religion should).

Instantly we were entranced by his playing, so many beautiful elements of why I love guitar come through in his music and presence, without floating around in genre space at all. Here on the road with Kevin Drumm, Dead C, Residents, Gang Gang Dance, Black Dice, etc., amongst this insane line-up, Richard ended up supporting Pan Sonic and really held it down, as a soloist. A few years later, Peter Rehberg and I (as KTL) were invited to join a tour Richard was doing with Earth. His incredible communication of atmosphere and texture was even more fluid than I remembered -- a real pleasure.

"It goes without saying that Polytheistic Fragments is an instrumental release - who among us would want it otherwise? In the tradition of his classic debut, Salvador Kali, this new record features equal amounts of improvisation and composition. Sir Richards powers lie in his ability to captivate with just the sound of his guitar, but he doesnt completely abandon studio processes, which allow Polytheistic Fragments to communicate a greater wholeness: all Sir Rick, all the time, if you will. We have come to expect a few solo acoustic guitar pieces with the gypsy stylings of his hero, Django Reinhardt - and as if to tenderize our consciousness and prepare it for the ride, Cross My Palm with Silver meets and exceeds our expectations. Rub Al Khali is an ode to the oud, a northern African lute of sorts. On Free Masonic Guitar, Sir Richard manifests free form acoustic playing wholly in his own style. Peppering the mix are the sounds of electric guitar and lap steel guitar, bringing contrast and color. Hecates Dream is a dreamy praise to a dark Greek Goddess, but Tennessee Porch Swing and Canned Goods and Firearms switch gears to good old down home Americana and country twang. Sir Richard is renowned for his prowess and mastery with the guitar, but the piano playing on Polytheistic Fragments shows a fluid, meditative style. Saraswati is a lengthy river piece bathed in Hindustani serenity, while Cemetery Games is a short celebratory skeletal dance, with more light-heartedness than spook. In a record with so many spirits, Bishop fills in the space where necessary and rounds out the feeling with catchy tunes such as Elysium Number Five and Ecstasies in the Open Air. Polytheistic Fragments shows that the divinely inspired Sir Richard Bishop cannot be contained in one form." -Drag City.

Hecates Dream is a dreamy praise to a dark Greek Goddess, but Tennessee Porch Swing and Canned Goods and Firearms switch gears to good old down home Americana and country twang. Sir Richard is renowned for his prowess and mastery with the guitar, but the piano playing on Polytheistic Fragments shows a fluid, meditative style. Saraswati is a lengthy river piece bathed in Hindustani serenity, while Cemetery Games is a short celebratory skeletal dance, with more light-heartedness than spook. In a record with so many spirits, Bishop fills in the space where necessary and rounds out the feeling with catchy tunes such as Elysium Number Five and Ecstasies in the Open Air. Polytheistic Fragments shows that the divinely inspired Sir Richard Bishop cannot be contained in one form." - Drag City.

Title: Road to Siam
Format: 10"
Label: Unrock
Country: Germany
Price: $25.00
“Road to Siam shows Richard Bishop on a musical trip from the Iberian Peninsula all along through North Africa and the Orient to the Far East. "Mekong" is an improvisation on 6-string guitar based on the particular sounds of a traditional three-stringed instrument known as a phin, which originated in Laos. "Mekong," which was recorded in Phitsanulok, Thailand in December 2013, is a typical Richard Bishop track, elegantly liquid and hypnotic and Bishops first new track in years. The B-side of the 20-minute long vinyl-only 10" features "Alhambra Drag," "Sand Shuffle" & "Coronados Broom," which are highlights taken from digital-only available albums. Limited edition pressing of 500 copies.” - Unrock.

Title: Salvador Kali
Format: Double LP
Label: Exiled
Country: USA
Price: $29.00
"Exiled Records is very excited to present the first ever vinyl edition of Sir Richard Bishops Salvador Kali. Originally released on cd by John Faheys Revenant in 1998. This was released following a run of peak Sun City Girls activity (330,003 Crossdressers, Dantes Disneyland Inferno) and came as something of a shock; a stunningly beautiful instrumental album that was entirely accessible! Composed and recorded free of the burden of expectation, his debut album marked Bishop as a force operating on his own plane. A fairly significant departure from the freewheeling nature of the Sun City Girls, Salvador Kali is a concise album in which he explores the hallmarks of his style: North African influences, Spanish flamenco, Indian raga and a fiery take on Django Reinhardts Rose Room. The epic 14 minute solo piano fantasia, Al-Darazi is saved for all of side C. There is an incredible cinematic feel to the album as its vibe runs from pieces that could be in a Satyajit Ray film to a lost Antonioni sequence set on the Mediterranean in the 1970s. Ironic that it was released by John Fahey, as it is was one of the few solo guitar albums to be free of the long shadow cast by Fahey. My favorite Sir Richard Bishop album on vinyl, at last! Edition of 500 copies." - Exiled.

Title: Tangier Sessions
Format: CD
Label: Drag City
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"The tone of the guitar and Sir Richards gentle, loving touch with it hold forth from the first moment of Tangier Sessions, sitting clear and true in the home-recorded night air above the city. The album sequence is the precise order of the songs as they were conceived and recorded. Ricks all over the neck in the early going while sorting through the dynamics of the instrument -- in fact, guitarophiles, the first couple of songs feature Sir Richard Bishop playing without a plectrum for the first time ever! Towards the end of the first side of Tangier Sessions, Sir Richard and guitar begin to chill out and cut loose in a different way -- arriving in the moment that was imagined for them, they stretch out, finding themselves in open space with fewer changes. This is a place where a player like Sir Richard Bishop can relax while remaining totally focused and present, hearing what the guitar and he are capable of in real time. The discoveries of side one give way to the trilogy of songs that comprise the second side, and the issues presented by “Mirage” are revisited from another angle, another spot on the map in “International Zone,” leaving finally a sense of journey completed in the serene moments of “Let It Come Down.” The narrative that builds as a function of this (noble)man-guitar dialogue gives Tangier Sessions a visceral punch that makes for a singular listening experience, even in the crowded realm of solo acoustic guitar albums. Nobody plays the guitar like Sir Richard Bishop -- and on Tangier Sessions, hes found a guitar that nobody but him plays either." - Drag City.
