Title: One Hour As Bernel And Hofmann
Format: CDR
Label: Tochnit Aleph
Country: Germany
Price: $15.00
"Ten years after Geopod, published by Zabriskie Point in 1995, the first release by G*Park / Marc Zeier (apart from the limited and privately issued Monode in 2003). Marc Zeier is a Schimpfluch-Gruppe member of the very first hour (as early as 1986 performance Kohlkopf), and an installation & video artist. For a profession he is a Plankton-fisher in the lakes around Zürich. "I had two old pianos - a pianola (Bernel) from 1820, and a grand piano (Hofmann) from the 1930s - which I decided to sell. The night before their removal I recorded the raw material for this last piece. I processed the recording during the following weeks by reducing it more and more. Finally I added some Pink Noise (whose frequencies are equally distributed on the whole frequency spectrum, it wipes out everything around). Towards the end of the piece it increases, and when it stops abruptly, the room seems to implode. The piece has to do with our memory: bits of earlier impressions, from sequences in the first part, rise to the surface later again and start to turn around, loop-like - overlapped by snatches of white noise - moving to the foreground and then fading away. Concentrating on the material all these weeks I felt more and more on with the huge resonance bodies of the two pianos..." Black disc in black Digipak with fullcolour artwork & fold-out inlay. Edition of 170 copies." - Tochnit Aleph.

Title: Sub
Format: Double CD
Label: 23Five
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"MARC ZEIERs first major album since the cryptic electro-acoustic Reuters (Tochnit Aleph 2008) is a sprawling masterpiece of modern day musique concrete, reflecting the early pioneers use of razor cut tape with a grandiose revelation of an existential horror. Zeier describes is as a manifestation of amorphous conditions that lead to (or interfere with) representational forms or states of being. For every malignant drone and turgid thrum, Zeier punctures fluttering, frozen methane surfaces with jagged incisions, pneumatic hammerings, and decompressed gasps. This fragmented punctuation is a signature to the G*PARK aesthetic, used effectively in mapping clinical situations turned septic. The exact nature of the sound object is informed more by a shadowy deconstruction than by a direct representation, thrust into an absurd existence as an abomination, a violation, a monster." -23Five.

Title: #10
Format: Mag
Label: G-Modern
Country: Japan
Price: $10.00
"Issue #10 from the Winter of 1995/6. This Japanese magazine focused on "Psychedelic, AVant-garde, Underground." G-Modern is the magazine put out by the head of the PSF label, Hideo Ikeezumi. The text is all in Japanese, but each issue is crammed with great photographs, weird artwork and ads, and lots of album reviews (the Japanese tradition of always reproducing every cover is helpful here). Theres a big emphasis on older, ultra obscure stuff, so theres always a few repros of covers youll definitely never see for the rest of your life. The accent is not only on the Tokyo underground as documented by PSF, but the entire history of worldwide psychedelic, avant-garde and underground music. Each issue is printed on nice book stock paper, in the 100 page range. For specialized interests, very specialized. #10 Features Han Bennink, Dagmar Andrtova, AMM, Beefheart, a lot of reviews etc. Japanese-text only." -G-Modern.

Artist: G.H.
Title: Housebound Demigod
Format: Double LP
Label: Modern Love
Country: UK
Price: $25.00
"From the disputed border somewhere between Lancashire and Yorkshire, G.H. (Gary Howell) claims a no mans land where he is free to decimate distinctions between black metal and concrète techno by drawing upon an elusive, metaphysical force thats exclusively common to music rooted in that region; from Muslimgauze and Autechre thru Shackleton and Demdike Stare. The inarguably mongrel Housebound Demigod is G.H.s debut solo album, following the Ground EP (2011) and his involvement with the hexed Pendle Coven project and HATE, alongside Miles Whittaker and Andy Stott, respectively, between 2003-2009. It sounds like nothing out there; the result of countless hours at the grindstone, using sound as tonal therapy and a purely expressive sculptural material to best render the feel of his bleak but extraordinarily beautiful surroundings, with all the rugged texture and captivating aesthetic of some ancient cave graffiti. The album unfolds as a treacherous topography of boggy drones, entrenched sub-bass and deforested, windswept feedback, strewn with the charred remains of black metal in opener "Screaming Demon Pickups" and the hollow-eyed stare down of "Angels And Doormen", or prone to bury the senses with unpredictable slow techno mudslides in "Mickey Cosmos" or the subsidence of "Packhorse". He often underlines that physicality with a drily ambiguous wit; check the bitterly clipped narrative on "Yorkshire Fog", or, equally, when he puts all his weight behind the stylus-troubling, bestial shudder of "Devils Bit Scabious", and you cant shake the feeling that hes gurning like an evil loon behind the rotten torque of the albums titular parting shot. While ostensibly monotone and overcast, the devil is found in the albums subtleties of timing and mixing detail; riddled with phantasms that lurk and lash out from the crevices of its granite slabs and pitch black ravines, all placed at oblique angles in his surreally folded, labyrinthine and unheimlich sound-field. Recorded with a DR550, a battered Charvel guitar and assorted guitar pedals. Mastered and cut by Matt Colton at Alchemy, pressed at Pallas. RIYL: Nurse With Wound, Stephen OMalley, Autechre, David Lynch, Shackleton." - Modern Love.

Artist: GAA
Title: Auf der Bahn zum Uranus
Format: LP
Label: Garden of Delights
Country: Germany
Price: $33.00
"The Saarland band Gäa played German-language progressive rock. Their band name derives from the ancient Greek gods, where Gaia (Latin notation: Gäa) is the goddess of the earth and fertility. The groups only LP, Auf der Bahn zum Uranus, was a short run released on the Kerston label in 1974 and is today sold at about 600 euros. It is a mature and well-balanced album, the artistic value of which long remained undiscovered. The tasteful cover was designed by Eduard Bell, the brother of Gäa bassist Peter Bell. There were several re-issues of the album -- LPs as well as CDs -- but unfortunately not all of them legitimate. The LP on Garden of Delights is provided with a four-page colored insert in LP size offering a detailed band history in German and English, complete discography, label repros, many photographs, and a Kerston story." -Garden Of Delights.

Artist: GAGNON, BERNARD
Title: Musique Électronique (1975-1983)
Format: LP
Label: Tenzier
Country: Canada
Price: $21.00
"Born in 1953, Bernard Gagnon is a product of Quebecs late 1960s underground music scene. In 1973, the Montreal-based musician turned to music theory, studied with Iannis Xenakis and met John Cage. That year, his band Mergélèpe-Guorismogue joined Montreals Atelier de musique expérimentale (AME), an organization created by Raymond Gervais, Michel Di Torre, Yves Bouliane and Robert M. Lepage to promote improvised music. Two years later, Gagnon began experimenting with electronic sounds as a member of Kevin Austins MetaMusic. At the turn of the decade, he studied under alcides lanza, Mariano Etkin and Paul Pedersen. It is then that he composed and recorded his first electroacoustic pieces using the electronic music studio at Mcgill University. In 1981, he was awarded both the CAPAC Hugh Le Caine Award and Radio-Canadas Prix national de composition électro-acoustique. Gagnon then joined Cham Pang, a multimedia electro collective, and reconnected with Lepage with whom he recorded and performed. The 1980s saw Gagnon turn to musique actuelle explorations which culminated with groups such as Stylo (with Lepage and Jean Derome) and La Flore Laurentienne (Lepage, Derome and Guillaume Dostaler among others). Tenzier is proud to announce the release of an album dedicated to Bernard Gagnons electronic music (1975-1983)." - Tenzier.

Title: Broda
Format: 12"
Label: Gala Drop
Country: Netherlands
Price: $16.00
"Working around their core unit of Afonso Simoes (drums), Guilherme Goncalves (electric guitar) and Nelson Gomes (synthesizers), here they find themselves cooperating for the first time with the wonderfully psychedelically vigorous bass playing of Rui Damaso (part of the legendary Loosers) and the topographically globetrotting ways of wayward adventurer conga orchestrator Jerry the Cat (formerly a part of Funkadelic/ Parliament and C.J. & Co touring bands; and later performed on records of Carl Craig, Recloose, Moodymann, Theo Parrish, and many others), both now members of the band. On Broda theyre joined by Ben Chasny (Six Organs of Admittance, Comets On Fire, ETC!), truly one of the most powerful forces in US guitar soul in recent decades, and as terrific a six-string player as one of likely to find on record and onstage in this day and age, wherever that might be. Broda careers through in three passages of positively organized jamming. The fruits of a weeks very intense work on freedom and democracy in the collective artistic gesture revealed in only the slightest of documentarian restraints, so as to excuse us into peeking into this cosmology of friendship and externalization of the luminous." -Gala Drop.

Country: USA
Price: $24.00
"Recorded in a shed at Taieri Mouth between 1998 and 2000, Mies vinyl reissue of ALASTAIR GALBRAITHs Cry CD (Emperor Jones 2000) looks directly into the furthest recesses of the mind of one New Zealands most admired yet habitually overlooked underground musicians. Guitar, violin, organ, and vulnerable murmurs frequently reverse and invert through four-track manipulations, giving Cry a haunting, unsettling and incredibly complex mindscape where tenebrous drones, hushed, lilted words, and deep warmth pull you in further and further." -MIE.

Title: Mass
Format: LP
Label: Siltbreeze
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"That ALASTAIR GALBRAITH should return to the Siltbreeze fold (responsible for his debut LP, Morse, in 1993) for his latest release seems practically tailor-made. But while Morse followed traditional avenues of rugged folk narrative tinged with psychedelic foxing, Mass is an unchartered, one-way trip through a world of ritual. Consisting of 22 tracks, this new album runs the gamut from mysterious beauty to just plain mysterious. Broken guitars, percussive loops, backwards tracking, a (homemade) glass harmonium, lullabies, bagpipe thievery and the odd bit of fighting talk are just some of the many bricks laid here, with Galbraith himself as the mortar and AMIEL BALESTER, MICHAEL KOHLER and DAVID KILGOUR providing assistance here and there. Mass is an expansive whopper prepared to go anywhere and do anything to get there. Includes free digital download coupon." -Siltbreeze

"On Alastairs third long player, sounds -- guitar, violin, even some bagpipes -- expand and contract, folding into one another one moment and breaking away the next. His soothing, almost meditational voice is the calm which sets atop the musics pulsing shiver - you get the feeling that hes singing in the same room with you. This is very intimate and personal music, full of wondrous melodies, cyclical experimentation and suspended notes." - Emperor Jones. Small stash of this mid-90s release.

Artist: GALBRAITH, ALASTAIR/JEAN JACQUES PALIX/DAVID WATSON
Title: Pure Speculation
Format: One-Sided LP
Label: La Station Radar
Country: France
Price: $18.00
"Pure Speculation is a record by three people who live in Paris (France), New York (New York) and Taieri Mouth (New Zealand). They have all met each other, but have never all been in the same place together. This single-sided LP now exists physically, yet the music on it lives up to its rather grandiose name – and does not actually exist in the real world. Watson is an improviser known for his bag-piping, Galbraith an instrument builder and song-writer known for his long-form sound works using little-understood acoustic phenomena and for his very short songs, while Palix is a radiophonic composer and sound designer who composes balletic operas for aerobatic teams. All these things are true but all sound like Munchausens wildest lies. There is no point attempting to describe music that has been composed in three separate parts in the mind of such accomplished fabulists, and then realized as a totality via a form of long-distance ouija-board manipulation. It is a highly-fictional salad of bells, gongs, drones and tones which will stick in your mind long after you have heard it. No one planned it, at least two of the musicians were ignorant of its existence for most of its lifetime, and only a perennial over-reacher such as myself would attempt to justify it in prose. When I first heard Pure Speculation, I thought someone had spiked my drink. Then I realized that the name should be taken perfectly literally. So do your ears a favour and indulge in this rarified form of speculation, its unlike much else youll hear until the next time youre going under for major surgery – only this auditory hallucination is one you will remember once you regain consciousness. Drink up – heres to speculation!" - Bruce Russell. Limited to 300 copies.

Title: From the Dark (South Island)
Format: CD
Label: Table Of The Elements
Country: USA
Price: $16.50
"Multi-talented Alastair Galbraith is the glue that binds the New Zealand underground. His work ranges from achingly lyrical violin for artists as disparate as Peter Jefferies and the Bats, to the feedback squalls he conjures as member of A Handful Of Dust, to the otherworldly miniatures he crafts for his own solo albums. However, in recent years, Galbraith, along with American Matt De Gennaro, has developed another remarkable performance idiom, one that is positioned closer to the sounding sculpture of Harry Bertoia. In From the Dark (South Island), architectural idiosyncrasies are transformed into nuanced and hypnotic audio. Wires - some as long as 100 feet - are affixed throughout a building. When the wires are taught and stroked with rosined hands or a piece of leather, longitudinal vibrations are sent to the points of attachment, creating a natural resonator. It is not the wires that make the sound, but the wall, railing or window frames at their end; wire length and room acoustics determine the pitch. The result, achieved in a veil of total darkness, is a beautiful and eerie confluence of chance and accident, architecture and improvisation. As Galbraith himself puts it, There is some quite magical feeling of communion turning the lights off and making the building sing." - Table Of The Elements

Title: Nam June Paik - A Work for Radio
Format: Cass
Label: The Tapeworm
Country: UK
Price: $9.00
"This hour-long compositional documentary was produced for the CBC Radio Series "Signature," and was originally broadcast on April 28, 1979. It was nominated for an ACTRA award for best radio documentary of the year. It is the result of a remarkable creative collaboration by artists such as John Cage, Charlotte Moorman, Philip Corner, and Nam June Paik himself with the author. Interspersed throughout the portrait are audio realizations by Ray Gallon of conceptual works by Nam June Paik. Thanks also to Lorne Tulk for remarkable engineering and creative contributions, and to Digby Peers for the courage to broadcast it. Ray Gallon has been a communicator for over 40 years, half of that time as a radio producer and audio artist. Although he had a classical music education, Ray gravitated early towards the avant-garde, and was fascinated by musique concrète, electronic music, so-called progressive jazz, and the multi-track experiments of the rock revolution in the 60s. His first exposure, on television, to the work of John Cage came very close to the moment when he wandered into a cinema by chance, and saw Fellinis 8 1/2. The one-two punch of these experiences left him delirious for the rest of his life. As a radio producer, he has worked in almost every department at CBC Radio except hard news. He was nurtured by Glenn Goulds experiments with "compositional documentaries," and developed his own style, inspired by Goulds work. In the late 80s, Rays focus turned towards new media, communications art, and computers. After moving to France in 1992, he continued to produce audio art and radio while teaching courses in new media and working as a technical communicator.

Title: Eiszeit
Format: LP
Label: Dirty Knobby
Country: USA
Price: $21.00
“Underground German kosmic rock band GAM recorded their sole record, Eiszeit, in 1978 and then shelved it after the master tape disappeared. Comprised of echo-guitar pioneer Günter Schickert, guitarist Axel Struck, and drummer Michael Leske, GAMs record sat undiscovered and thought lost until The Crack in the Cosmic Egg authors Alan and Steven Freeman tracked down Günter, found out that he had a copy of the recording, and released it on CD on their label, Cosmic Egg, in 2004.  Championed by Julian Cope, GAM wove echoed guitars and tripped-out vocals together over a tight rhythmic groove that still sounds current thirty odd years after their recording date.  First time on LP, this record was mastered from 1/4" tape by Timothy Stollenwerk and features a tip-on sleeve and a color insert with English and German liner notes. Eiszeit will appeal to fans of early Ash Ra Tempel, Cosmic Jokers, and Achim Reichel and the Machines.  500 pressed.” - Dirty Knobby.

Title: Diversions 1994-1996
Format: LP
Label: Pan
Country: UK
Price: $19.00
2015 repress. "The 30-minute Diversions 1994-1996 EP is made up entirely from samples from the collection of Lee Gambles jungle cassette mix-tapes. The audio has been subjected to analog and digital deformations, while trying to extract, expand upon, and convey particular qualities emblematic of the original music. The effect is that of a musical body scan, all that is solid melts into air. Sounds are unearthed, dissected on the operating table, melted and unlocked , evoking sonics not unlike the heavy dub processes of Jah Shaka and Scion in an INA GRM frame of mind or bearing a similar methodological approach with what Mark Leckey explored in his piece "Fiorucci Made Me Hardcore." It can be heard as a "memory" of a period of music and for some could work as a "cued recall," which is a form of memory retrieval. Lee Gamble started out as a teenager DJing on pirate radio and on the emerging jungle scene; however, his own approach to music has taken a more experimental direction. Exploring the outer realms of abstraction through digital synthesis/resynthesis, Lee has described his current compositional process as "the configuration of material (ex nihilo) via various digital synthesis methods, prompts further disfigurations and reconfigurations. What you then have left is often the detritus or debris of an idea. Phantasms of both previous and current musical, pseudo-scientific and sculptural influences are manifest as new material abstractions, created from the digital blank canvas. This abstraction allows several interests to appear in the works simultaneously." He is also a founding member of the UK-based CYRK collective and has curated/co-curated several CYRK events. He has also produced and curated three radio series for London-based radio station Resonance 104.4 FM and he continues to DJ. Lee has released his computer compositions on the Entracte label and has collaborated with composer John Wall and artists Yutaka Makino and Bryan Lewis Saunders. Diversions 1994-1996 is the beginning of a longer-term collaboration with Pan. Mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering. Pressed on 140 gram white vinyl housed in a silk screened PVC sleeve with artwork by Kathryn Politis & Bill Kouligas." - Pan.

Repressed. "Dutch Tvashar Plumes seems to map the changes in Lee Gambles approach to music-making over the last couple of years. From his initial exposure and subsequent immersion into jungle as a teenager, he soon began experimenting with structure and sound design, which led him to a more "academic" approach to "computer music." There were many self-imposed rules he adhered to during this time. These last few years he decided to break with that and make an intuitive venture forward. This record is the first real document of that.

Price: $29.00
"Following up from the success of his emphatic PAN releases Dutch Tvashar Plumes (PAN 036LP) and Diversions 1994-1996 (PAN 033LP) in 2012, PAN is excited to announce Koch (pronounced "cotch"), the new album from Londons Lee Gamble. Sharing some stylistic affinity with his previous records, which excavated his deeply personal history with UK jungle and rave, and techno, this new work dives even deeper to reveal a singular and intimate musical vantage point, shifting to approaching music as projection, state, hallucination, another place. In Koch, we experience an artist constructing a future, after time spent deconstructing the past. In the music we witness such dimensional abstraction, zooming between epic macro-scenery and claustrophobically close detail, disorientation and absolute focus. Rhythms fuse together and phase apart, club tracks tunnel into an anxious wilderness, with themes and textures emerging as threads throughout the record, wormholing between each track. There is a sense of the seen and the unseen, an honest tension between music as function (for this world) and as artistic exploration (for another world) as cracks in the surface appear to reveal the odd and alien minutiae within. Koch represents an intimate and revelatory new phase in Lee Gambles practice. Producing tracks that can live and grow on their own in a club or personal listening environment, the artists exploratory framework creates threads of consistency and tension between disparate spaces, locations, and mental states." - Pan.

The Kuang EP heralds the release of Gambles keenly-awaited 2nd LP KOCH with three tracks of dissociative ambient/techno. "Kali Wave" opens with a bittersweet breakbeat roller sounding something like early AGCG playing in a hall of mirrors, whereas "Mimas Skank" diffuses oily acid and dry dub techno inna dancefloor wormhole, and the detached ambient drift of "Girl Drop" rends a gasp of post-rave bliss into 12 minutes of spectral sublime or precipitous dread, depending on your perspective." - Pan.

Title: Saturdays Notes
Format: LP
Label: Guido Gamboa
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
“The debut LP by Chicago-based artist Guido Gamboa, Saturdays Notes is a multi-faceted collection of sonic studies born from a day of studious and diaristic note-taking. The music flows in idiosyncratic segments taking on a form akin to an artists sketchbook, constantly crossing and challenging the line between the aesthetically curious and the personally candid. Various influences are apparent as the listener is weaved in and out of hollowed concrète construction zones, beds of frayed and tangled electroacoustics, irreverent noise chambers and catatonic lo-fi tape haunts. At times unsettlingly intense and at others laughably informal, Saturdays Notes serves as both a rigorous fledgeling artistic statement and an exhaustively introspective “note to self.”
Saturdays Notes comes in a UV gloss sleeve with full color labels and download cards, in an edition of 200.”

Format: LP
Label: Golden Lab
Country: UK
Price: $27.00
“Originally released on Gary Wars Fixed Identity imprint on cassette in 2011 and then reissued by Beartown in 2013, again on cassette, this is the real highlight of the three Gamecock albums recorded at the beginning of the 2010s. A huge stanky monster of a record. Heres a slightly twerked version of the original write-up: Duo of Stuart Arnot (Smear Campaign, Plum Slate) and Nick Mitchell (Chalaque, Desmadrados Soldados de Ventura). They play a kind of arrhythmic, un-danceable funk of high-end frequencies and low-end drum machines, fed through a wah-wah and rammed forcefully into the listeners cerebral cortex. Pitch-shifted Casio crap and unadorned Roland Juno shimmer are melded to form what is at once both sweet and listenable and yet still, somehow, horribly repellant. Sitting somewhere uncomfortably, painfully and way away from the hypnogogic pop bandwagon, where the drum machines have bronchitis and the synthesizers sneeze, they are brutally loud, joyfully all-consuming and epic in their prolongation of the crescendo. This first vinyl edition is pressed on 140-gram vinyl and features new X-rated artwork by Glasgow-based artist Susan Fitzpatrick, as well as the original Fixed Identity art on the insert (also for adults only). Edition of 250.” - Golden Lab.

"Oneohtrix Point Never teams up with long time collaborator Joel Ford with Games for their first release on Hippos In Tanks. Established in 1994, Games is a 4LYFE partnership between best friends. We met in a 6th grade science class and drew tape covers of fake bands that we dreamed we were in together. In high school we started jamming double synthesizers in Dans basement. This is when we were burning a lot, headbanging to 70s jazz-fusion, dubbing 88.9 blazer mixtapes and jamming them in cars ALL NITE while parsing the landscape data brain !!NORTH WAYLAND STYLE.!! After years of focusing on our respective musical projects (Oneohtrix Point Never, Tigercity) we decided it was time to make THE MAGIC HAPPEN. In February of 2010, we moved to Bushwick and started eating a lot of STREET MEAT and growing vegetables in a legit garden... EVERYTHING HAD TO BE SLOWER AND CREAMIER. From this profound environ GAMES WAS BORN. The sound is a blend of sampler/synth ecologies from across the globe. When we were hot teens, the synthesizer was our vehicle for blasting through THIRD LIFE during a time when all we had was a Daytona tape deck. Ever since, weve been ON THE CHASE." -Hippos In Tanks

From a production perspective the record is massive. Joel Ford naturally takes the fader reigns and delivers production quality on par with Sade. In the context of Games, Lopatin voyages to new stylistic islands observing the nature of moments passed with stunning awareness and vision. Naturally, his observations circle back to us in the indistinguishable palates of that infamous oscillated vernacular." - Hippos In Tanks.

His selection of tracks fits the pattern seamlessly: Asmus Tietchens, Cluster, Moebius, Roedelius, Michael Rother, Riechmann, Gunter Schickert, etc. All names writ large in the avant-garde scene of German progressive music, as well as underlining Gunter Körbers audacity in offering such music a forum with his label.

⿿Gang Gang Dance are a group composed of well-known entities (in and around NYC in particular) but have left a sporadic, almost shadowy, impression upon people nonetheless.  Various members play/have played in various other bands.  Theyll surface to play a clutch of shows, most all well-attended, only to disappear again (as regards to any kind of reliable congregation).  Oh, and theres also been no record to speak of, save a 100-copy CD, more or less fleetingly manifested for an art event with probably somewhere that amount of attendees. Anyways, now we have a document, albeit LP only, and thankfully definitely a good one. The opening female vocal ululations soon enough refract electronically, and the summoned whalesong dimension spires into an urgent metempsychotic groove.  Coming as they do from different angles, its safe to assume there is humanity to the postproduction approach on here.  Indeed the first side in its totality achieves a narrative facility which, when sized up against the nature of its parts, could remind one of a more quietly-alloyed Chrome. It does not end there, in fact there is something of a sense of unfinished business, and the second side strikes off with a snapping dream of desert suspense.  Machinic industry rises up here too though, marking yet another salient entre into the crafted spuriousness GGD seek to espouse.  An open drone fills for much of the half, accumulating a lyric denouement that possesses overtures toward melody and texture but less toward propulsive mien.    Again, and as always with this outfit, not so fast, especially in assuming the accumulation will not build anew, and fairly dramatically, before the end. And it is when it in fact does that sadly deceased member Nathan Maddox joins the fray most obviously, his vox working up the Can-like lather along with the suddenly more brash (especially after the subdued interlude) compatriots, everything spiking up to the sendoff digitized muezzin wail.⿝ - Dan Hougland; Other Music.

Utilizing avant garde sensibilities & cut-and-paste assemblies, they approach music as pure sound.

As interest grows in the indigenous music of many cultures of the Far and Middle East, especially in hybridized fusions of the familiar Western forms with local historical folk forms, so Gang Gang Dance are the logical product of an outward looking NYC in the global age: Middle Eastern percussion & keyboard stabs collide with Far Eastern instrumentation, & elements of Western pop & dance." -Latitudes

"Gang Wizard celebrates its 19th year with its fifth proper full-length LP, Important Picnic, on MIE. Mike Landucci started the band in 1995 with his brother Tom, and Jacob Anderson (Spirit Duplicator, Yuma Nora) joined shortly after. Christopher Breedon started drumming for them in 98, and those three have formed the core of the band ever since. Dozens of notable musicians have come and gone, most importantly, Brian Miller (Foot Village) who gains a mastering credit on this album, and Rob Enbom (Hospitals, Eat Skull), who, with Landucci and Anderson, took the band on an unexpected detour into more degenerative psych-noise terrain (think Amon Düül II), and as far as a European tour in 2007. Based in downtown Long Beach now, Landucci and Breedon have brought on board the two eldest Landucci boys (Linus, 19; Noah, 16) and local jazz guru Rob Woodworth, in between annual trips to Portland to record with Anderson. Recordings with every combination of this haphazard group are reflected on Important Picnic. Its easy to forget that every song is completely improvised in one take; they take on a verse-chorus-bridge format frequently. Its like Evaporators with none of the humor or musicianship; Hijokaidan deciding to cover the Hollies. Hints of no wave, garage, and straight-up bullshit indie noise weave in and out of these songs like it was natural and meant to be -- wink, nod, gasp, sigh. Simple-mindedness is celebrated, embraced, declared a virtue, and Gang Wizard invites you in to revel in it. One of Gang Wizards 2013 self-released lathe cuts had the distinction of being purchased by exactly two people: Thurston Moore and Henry Rollins. Will the rest of the world ever catch onto whatever it is those two hear in the adventurous ramblings of the Gang Wizard? Doubtful. But stroll past Gang Wizards Long Beach garage and hear the little broken amps squeal away while a Landucci screams his lungs out with the utmost urgency about nothing in particular, and youll realize they really dont care." - MIE.

Sparkeling synths and homemade glitter electronics are combined with whirlwind drums, screaming vocals, and aluminum spring guitars. A fantasy of blindness cycling through your lungs.

This album is pure naive headphone acid pop to drive to, at least thats what was going through our heads."- Ganglians Sacramentos Ganglians want an island somewhere where they can soak in the sun and prowl the canopy by night. Its not often that they do get out, but they can get down for that. Recording sometimes as one, sometimes as four its a real game to figure out where the entity comes from and where its going. First and foremost its about uncertain pleasures. Its a bit like choose your own adventure. Theres "codeine balladry"; a slightly upsetting tempo that is quickly flushed into an aural high, the next moment youre in the toy strewn abyss of the bedroom and then out to the tribal caves of the natives. The planets align and the sun beats down, palms tingling, and you are on the island theyve built, the scenery constantly shifting for a better view, of you. "If you ask them, Sacramentos Ganglians consist of "the whole of the Ganglian race" as well as "the squirrels in the walls that bounce acorns across the ceiling in the dead of night." So far, Ive resisted the urge to look too hard to find out more. What I do know is that the group, who creates all-over-the-map damaged-and-psychedelic noise-pop, is about to release an EP and LP on Woodsist. The labels already had a banner year and change via Crystal Stilts, Wavves, Blank Dogs, Vivian Girls, etc. Add this to the trophy case. Really, Ganglians sound isnt as easy to peg as some of their cohorts -- listen to three songs and youll hear three different approaches with some similar threads running through. See, for instance, "Hair"s rollicking dark surf and the more pastoral (and considerably epic) "Valiant Brave."- Brandon Stosuy /stereogum.com

Artist: GANGLOFF WITH THE GREAT AMERICAN DRONE ORCHESTRA, CARA & MIKE
Title: Knock On Lifes Door
Format: Double LP
Label: MIE
Country: UK
Price: $29.00
MIE presents Knock on Lifes Door from Cara & Mike Gangloff With The Great American Drone Orchestra. "Theres a particular twinkle in the great expanse of American songwriting. This has seen countless nostalgic exploitations over the years - collections of popular songs strung together under the banner of the so-called Great American Songbook that have reiterated the form of many of these songs without contemplating their depths. In terms of thoughtful, emotive synthesis, few have understood it in the way that Cara and Mike Gangloff understand it on this new album. They have taken older American songs, popular songs that weve come to understand as standards, and stretched them out into the rolling hills and vast expanses that gave birth to the nations earliest music. American history is a history of tension. A group of aristocrats saw fit to bestow a limited degree of freedom upon the underclasses. They called this democracy, co-opting a concept that terrified them in the hopes that the implications of its meaning might placate the unwashed masses. Within that sliver of freedom, incredible heights were reached. Blues. Jazz. Mountain music. And on and on. The songs on this record are recognizable. Theyre classics. And yet here they play out in ways the songwriters could never have predicted. Cara and Mike Gangloff have married the colloquial with the eternal. With certain songs, like Sentimental Journey, they lift the material out of its saccharine setting and into the troubling and sublime nation from which it springs. All of Me is rendered utterly psychotic, teasing apart the songs desperate, masochistic, violent implications. The songs become essays about themselves, investigations into their own histories of terror and escape. Mood Indigo becomes a haunting dirge. Cry Me a River is a rhythmically jarring lightning rod of unease. The inventiveness of interpretation is spirit-raising. The cultural history of the country is one of cosmic entertainment in the face of excruciating injustice. Transcendence has always been necessary. For better or worse, the United States of America is a nation defined by expanse." - Matt Krefting, 2016. "The Great American Drone Orchestra is: Sharon Stacy, Charlie Andersen, Matt Peyton, Sonya Austin, Joe Dejarnette, Sally Anne Morgan, Isak Howell, Scott Prouty, Anne Hartman, Tatsuya Nakatani, Nathan Bowles, Michelle Dove, Reilly Stacy Blackwell, Abriel Stacy Blackwell and Willa Shea-Gangloff." - MIE.

Artist: GANGLOFF, MIKE & CARA
Title: Black Ribbon of Death, Silver Thread of Life
Format: LP
Label: MIE
Country: UK
Price: $24.00
"Mike & Cara Gangloffs Black Ribbon of Death, Silver Thread of Life is the third in a series of loosely connected melodic investigations released by Mike Gangloff over the past two years. All three were recorded around the Gangloff home in rural Floyd County, Virginia, and were engineered by Joseph Dejarnette (Carolina Chocolate Drops, Bruce Greene, Curtis Eller). And all three feature the far-reaching improvisation familiar from Gangloffs work with the old-time stringband Black Twig Pickers and the acoustic-drone outfit, Pelt. Taken together, they form a musical triptych. Poplar Hollow (Mike on banjo and fiddle, with Cara joining on sruti box) reflects the social fiddle traditions of that part of Virginia, exuberant kick-ups that might be played at a barn-dance or at the country store. Melodies for a Savage Fix (recorded in an all-nighter with guitarist Steve Gunn, and featuring a host of non-Virginian instruments like gongs, tanpura and singing bowls) are the late-night ramblings and conversations that take place well after the dance is over, with dawn drawing nigh. Black Ribbon is an album from the day after, when the cares of the world have again settled in. But though there is woven throughout this album a pattern of fear, loss and regret, it is held together by the warp of tunes and songs marked by joy and hope. The foreboding of Charlie Pattons O Death -- sung unaccompanied, in tones caught between resignation and jubilation -- is followed by Rocking in a Weary Land, where the whirling of hurdy gurdy and the drone of fiddle rise to transcendent heights. The cautionary words of the Carter Familys Righten That Wrong (If you do wrong today, the price you must pay), the regret of the18th-century Shape Note hymn Davids Lamentation (Oh my son! Would to God I had died/For thee), and the apocalyptic visions of Black Ribbon I, II and III are offset by expansive, joyful fiddle-and-sruti tunes like Mulberry Raider and West India. John Fahey, in his notes to the American Primitive collection, posited that the Shape Note songs, spirituals and other religious music of the South were descendants of ecstatic religious practices stretching far back through the mists of Time, that underneath it all [one can] hear pan pipes tooting and a cloven hoof beating time: on Black Ribbon, ecstasy can be found in even the darkest of moments, and the silver thread of life shines throughout." --Adam Frost; Released in a run of 500 LPs with artwork by Jake Blanchard.

"Fire Records & Bo Weavil Recordings are extremely proud to present the long-awaited re-issue of The Garbage & The Flowers classic double album Eyes Rind As If Beggars, a sprawling collection of fragile melodies, abrasive improvisations and velvet voices. The story of The Garbage & The Flowers, by some measure Wellingtons most brilliant pop band, is equal parts classic underground rocknroll and a hazy ramshackle history pockmarked with bursts of genius and stoned rehearsals. Rare is it for any band to garner so much underground acclaim while leading such a nebulous existence. A small handful of releases, compilation appearances and few live shows make for a curious stop/start history. Tension can produce the goods and tension was what watered The Garbage & The Flowers. Yuri Frusin (guitar, songwriting) and Helen Johnstone (viola, vocals, now bass) met in their teens sometime in the 1980s. Naming themselves after a line in Leonard Cohens "Suzanne" and taking cues from The Velvet Underground, the band has existed in some shape or form since, with help from Paul Yates, Heath Cozens, Torben Tilly, Rachel Davies, Kristen Wineera, and Stuart Porter. When asked recently about the group, original drummer Tilly offers a particularly apt description of their sound: "What I loved about the music we created is that it sounded like it had come from somewhere faraway, that it had traveled a lot of distance and gathered some dust and debris along the way. That said, despite its unhinged qualities we were never really a noise-band even though some strange and beautiful electromagnetic noise would make it to tape. Most of the time it was all deeply rooted in a song." This, of course, is one of the greatest parts of The Garbage & The Flowers charm. They really did seem out there, on their own, absorbed in their own world, dropping gem after gem of fractal noise-pop onto slowly corroding four-track cassettes, willing these songs into existence just long enough to let them catch breath and glide away from the speakers for a few moments, before Frusin and Johnstone would knuckle down and write yet more beautiful melodies for beautiful losers. This is a rocknroll classic which will whip the wigs off all the crystalline clowns today. Includes a bonus full-length disc of additional material (compilation tracks, previously unreleased material, etc.), plus a 24-page booklet with notes and photos." -Bo Weavil/Fire.

"The Garbage and the Flowers have been around since the early nineties and have released some of the most beautifully delicate sounds ever pressed to vinyl. They just havent done it all that often. From their 1992 single on Twisted Village to their double LP on the Now Sound from 1997 to their Skulltones single in 2010, G&TF have casually offered us glimpses into their genius. Stoned Rehearsal is exactly what the name implies. Recorded in 2007 to an audience that consisted solely of two Rainforest Dingoes and a Tibetan terrier, Stoned Rehearsal finds our heroes and heroine relaxed and loose. And for those of us who live in another hemisphere, it gives us the best representation of the live G&TF live experience we’re likely to get. Stoned Rehearsal was originally released on cassette by the band but was barely heard out of Australia. Even if you found a copy, you may be one of those unfortunate souls with a tape that the band forgot to dub (gee, wonder how that happened).

His recordings under his own name represent a unique brand of solo multi-track recording with a seamless integrity; through a skillful use of instrumentation and recording technique, Garbes eschews notions of low fidelity for songs reminiscent of traditional American garage rock produced in the haze of an early 90s UK aesthetic. Genuine pop songs, cloaked in a comforting wash of reverb, as if Lou Reed had done a record for Creation; more ecstatic than obstructed Garbes voice is a refreshing one outside the continuum of contemporary four-track bedroom pop.

“Four point five songs of a warm, humble talent from Ruth Garbus (ex-Happy Birthday, responsible for a top five Sub Pop release before dipping out, and sister of the one they call tUnE-yArDs), pursuing a lithe, late spring wildflower folk-pop, built around words that feel like poetry and songs that drape over you like fresh warm sheets on a bed. Garbus paints these songs as moving targets, each track sounding slightly different from the last in a way that pulls the listener off their guard. “I Took A Walk,” recorded live, possesses a certain Lois Maffeo ca. Courtney Love quality, with this one lyric “committing a crime is my water to wine” that keeps rattling around in my head. Theres a really strong sense of arrangements here which fills “Kisserine Chalk” with woodsy mystery and whistling chorus, and elsewhere peels back to a late Brill Building sensibility, that year or two before songwriting saw its way out and the 60s took over; its not hard to think of a Harpers Bizarre or Spanky And Our Gang getting hold of “Opal Elections” and adding strings or whatnot, but what Garbus leaves us with here is a new, small world to explore independent of pre-conceived notions, asking the listener to trust her. Listener, you should (and knock the speed down to 33rpm after the last labeled song for a snippet worth hearing at a less frantic pace).” - Still Single.

Title: Rendezvous with Rama
Format: LP

Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"Ruth Garbus, of Brattleboro VT, is a force of nature in the Upper Valley. Her visual art and musical work are always imbued with the magic of a crisp fall evening, suggesting the shifting mystery of the seasons, rooted in the granite of the White Mountains. Rendezvous with Rama was originally issued on CD (Autumn Records) in 2010, around the same time she was working in the quartet Happy Birthday. This followed her work with the Feathers Family collective, who were responsible for some of the first progressive-folk-smoke to drift from Southern Vermont. But this here is what she sounded like solo back in those days, and its great. These days, Ruths voice and topics feel darker and maybe richer somehow, but the vibe here is as light as a seagull who got tricked into following the Connecticut River up from the Long Island Sound. Backing herself with circular acoustic patterns, her voice recalls the sweet charm of Sandy Denny when she was with the Strawbs, or the way Joni Mitchell covered Leonard Cohens “Urge for Going,” in 72. Rendezvous with Rama is a classic piece of volk vinyl, and you will be damn pleased to have it in your collection." - Byron Coley, 2015.

"When it comes to blown-out psychedelia, the first current band I want to hear is Eternal Tapestry. When it comes to desolate desert blues, that band is Barn Owl. Those are two pretty potent names in the world of experimental music right now so when 4/5 of them join up for some Portland sessions, thats good news for us all. Gärden Sound is the quartet of Dewey Mahood and Jed Bindeman of Eternal Tapestry (as well as Plankton Wat & Heavy Winged, respectively) and Jon Porras and Evan Caminiti of Barn Owl. Black Summit is their first charcoal-lined foray into the deep and if you cant get lost in this haze, theres not much hope. Immediately evident is the incredible restraint shown by all four players. Theyre not being timid or trying to feel each other out, but theres an obvious level of comfort and understanding between each. With three guitars and Bindemans trademark drumming, it would be easy to drown everything in full-on sludge but Gärden Sound are too damn good to play that game. Opener, Forbidden Paradise, sets the scene. Methodical guitar works lull the listener into a solemn state of comfort while Bindeman adds to the hypnosis with tribal-infused narcotic rhythms. The build-up is slow but gets you ready for the knock-down blasts of Beast of Burden. Heavy stomp and zoned-out, smoked-out guitar riffs that blow the roof to oblivion. This is music that needs to be played as loud as you can stand it. Hidden Origin calms things back down, contemplating the next move while finding its way through the blackened labyrinth concocted by Porras, Caminiti and Mahood. Each guitarist finds his own path as they lead each other to the prize. The 14-minute closer, Obsidian Sky, brings everything home. Sprawling riffage like a dense forest of apocalyptic crumble. Desolation takes hold as the molasses drones take shape and form themselves into an unpassable mountain of debris. Its mind-bending and cathartic; a sonic temple crushed to ash so it can rise again. Gärden Sound prove worthy opponents, ably standing on their own and stomping out their own trail toward the stars." -Digitalis

Label: Dont Trust The Ruin

Price: $12.00
"B.r. Garm is a member of Visitations and founder and owner of our local universe “Strange Maine”. The “78th morning tide” is truly a fantastical listen that is simultaneously foreboding and inviting. Side A opens with the title track and is a complete psychedelic journey unto itself, followed by a lady losing her mind and smokin’ on rainbows, a face off with Jesus and the devil, a tale of Windham Maine, a bombed out apocalyptic country song and a fuzzed out doomy cover of Gordon Lightfoot’s “Wreck of The Edmund Fitzgerald”. Side B begins with “Can You Feel It” which sounds like a loners take on Damo era Can. Followed rapidly by a duo of songs that cover the apocalypse and getting stoned, a song that sounds as if Black Sabbath never made it out of the bedroom, a sort of childs prayer called “So Many Men” (which we got to play on!), a deceivingly dark folk song called “Pretty Red Pony”, and finally a truly haunting and beautiful song called “At The End of The World”. Locked grooves end both sides! This whole record is a complete joy to listen too, infectious and hard to get off the record player. One of our all time favorites! This is Garm’s second release on dttr (other releases can be found on Mangedisc, and Time-Lag). Cover artwork by Hillary Irons, printed on thick old style jackets, accompanied by a pamphlet with lyrics and chords for those who want to play along. Limited to 500 copies." - Dont Trust The Ruin.

Title: If You Take Your Magic Slow
Format: LP
Label: Night People
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"If You Take Your Magic Slow is the debut full-length LP from multi-instrumentalist Jennifer Barontis The Garment District, with help from a few friends and family—her cousin Lucy Blehar provides lead vocals throughout. If You Take Your Magic Slow is very much a structured album with its diverse tracklist meticulously strung together. A mix of surreal instrumentals and subtle turns conjures outdoor walks in transitional atmospheres and landscapes, nature hikes in the city, sunny days that are okay with becoming cloudy, warm music full of feeling that remains comfortably easy-going despite the meticulous care given to its sophisticated orchestration and arrangements. This eclecticism creates something complex yet accessible, loose but direct. Baron mixes pastoral psychedelia with arƞul minimalist post-punk experimentation and a subtle approach to library music, soundtracks as “pop,” with just enough droney dreamy color to fill it all in. If You Take Your Magic Slow doesntit follow any templates or gimmicks: its focus is on being true to its musicality, songwriting, and honest approach to compelling contemporary easy listening—something we are quite fond of. A perfect summertime record. If You Take Your Magic Slow follows Barontis first Garment District recordings, Melody Elder, a 2011 cassette on Night-People, and a 7” the following year on La Station Radar (featuring a remix from Sonic Boom). The 10-song LP was recorded both with Greg Matecko at Frankenstein Sound Labs in Hazelwood, PA, and at Jennifertis home in Pittsburgh. It features Lucy Blehar on lead vocals, as well as contributions by her brother Jeff Baron (The Essex Green, The Ladybug Transistor); her husband Greg Langel, Matt Booth (bass); and Chris Parker (drums)." - Night People.

"With a pair of cassette releases in recent months on the venerable tape labels, Stunned Records and 905 Tapes, Garrincha & The Stolen Elk may seem like neophytes on the scene but the truth is Davy Bui and Matt Kretzmann have been making music together in one form or another since 2002. I Dont Believe You kicks off the album with chiming bells and an upbeat church hymn slowed down and matched to a barrage of processed chanting voices. The song morphs into a hypnotic guitar loop layered with ringing synths, guitar washes and ghostly vocals, all building to a cacophonous climax replete with bleating saxes, a buzz metal riff and shredded guitar. Tower of Babble begins with sounds of rainfall and something sounding like slowed-down Gregorian chants as a chiming guitar melody softly repeats, eventually giving way to a buzzing organ drone, a tribal drum beat and belted German vocals before taking a final sinister turn with an insistent snare roll propelling the song towards its grand finale. The album concludes with the side-long, three-part First Rites, Last Communion suite. Heavily comprised of processed Asian church ceremony field recordings accompanied by occasional guitar and keyboard statements, the piece eventually erupts into a maelstrom of noise blasts, wild guitar and ringing bells before settling into a series of long, drawn out tones. Mastered by Graham Lambkin (ex-Shadow Ring), this album sounds like little else in the Weird Forest catalog." -Weird Forest

"Its been nearly two years since weve heard new music from Gary War and Spectrum Spools are excited to announce the release of his inevitable breakthrough Jareds Lot. Through the years we have heard the developments from the D.I.Y. psychedelia of New Raytheonport to the more current electronic acid-prog tracks we heard from Horribles Parade and the most recent Police Water EP. Jareds Lot brings the years of laboring and hard work full circle, with every facet of the project dialed into perfection. These tight and intelligently arranged pieces are the most concise and mind-blowing set of songs presented yet and were sure youll have a hard time taking this off your turntable. The album kicks off with the incredibly anthemic "Thousand Yard Stare," which asserts immediately that the album is very different than previous efforts, crafted with hindsight in mind and glowing with ambition. We can hear the melancholy voice of a man lost in the cosmos with nothing to lose going for broke, its all or nothing. Tracks like "Superlifer" and "Pleading for Annihilation" contain such a powerful energy and pack such a wallop, that you wont possibly be able to stand still. There is a great juxtaposition however, with songs like "Advancements in Disgust" and "World After" experimenting with new styles of pop/rock structure and incorporation of odd rhythm and melody. Gary has a masterful control of his machines, and you can tell that countless hours were spent making sure that the vision came direct and absolutely pure, from his mind to the record you will hold in your hands. Even though we have a more synthetic-based set of tracks, its apparent that these transmissions are messages that are based in our reality, evoking a boundless range of emotions throughout. The hectic fidelity of Gary Wars previous recordings has morphed into a unique production style which rewards with its rich tone and multi-layered tiers of sound and melody. We are witnessing a huge leap forward in both sound and vision, respectively. Meanwhile, the alienated code hardly discernible to the listener and clever pop structure remains, and in top form, making this album a warmly received gift to the Spectrum Spools catalog.

Price: $10.00
"Gary War, the mysterious upstart from Brooklyn, NY has just released his debut LP this winter on SHDWPLY/DISARO Records. Playing with vast, sweeping echoes, softly sung lyrics, and infusing sonic textures through synth-driven overtures, Gary Wars album, New Raytheonport takes us through the often banal sonics of the psychedelic form with a fresh take on what seems at first, an aggregate of the past couple of decades of drug-influenced music, and drops us dead center, at the doorstep to La La Land. His tonal insobriety, from one song to the next is a true sign of the times, where artists are driven to explore different avenues, melding genres, vocal styles and instrumentation to arrive somewhere new, all the while taking the listener along for the ride. Pulling from influences that hold as much up to Chrome as they do Syd Barret, Gary War is able to wrangle them from every corner, and he even covers The Alan Parsons Project without sounding misguided,or a late arriving hippie on a hotbox high. Instead, Gary War creates a sound that wisps through the knobby branches of the past and sumptuously uproots our notions of the boundaries of psychedelia." - www.victimoftime.com.

"Split release from two pioneering underground acts who have recently filtered their collective psyches through the overwhelming, hyper-populated screwtopia of Hong Kong. Side one features Gary War returning to wash down the blitzkrieg of 2012s Jareds Lot (SP 020CD/LP) with four new tracks that implode outwardly, suspended from a thread that binds psychic devastation to cosmic inspiration. Furthering his endeavors to drag song structure into the future, the cuts here swirl with refracted melodies layered meticulously upon streams of arpeggiated machine rock and disembodied voices that coalesce into unlikely hooks, all permeated with the feverish emotional content that has graced all of Garys work thus far. A deeper step into a pool of progressive maximal wave and distinctly modern psychedelia. Side two presents Purple Pilgrims (Clementine & Valentine Nixon), a duo of sisters from Christchurch via Hong Kong, with their first release following a haunting, small press lathe cut in 2011. Gary Wars engineering and production opens their sound world into a vast new realm where their songs slowly unfurl and orbit in cycles of melancholy and euphoria. Delicate, hypnotic vocals hover gently above spectral waves of guitar and exotic abstraction as subtle beds of rhythm lockstep in the distance. Separately and collectively, the three tracks work to form a vacuum capable of sucking the listener into reflection upon an endless inner galaxy. The Pilgrims have here distilled the mysterious hybrid of shimmering distortion and je ne sais quoi that have long attracted global purveyors of the N.Z. underground into its absolute purest form. As perfect a soundtrack to observe the latest night transform into the earliest morning as one could ever dream of hearing. 180 gram silver and black vinyl in a limited, silver-foiled sleeve." - Upset the Rhythm.

“2014 release. Eleven early electroacoustic pieces for the Studiotrautonium keyboard alongside tape manipulation to accompany the New York City Ballet production of Electronics by George Balanchine. Originally staged March 22, 1961, as part of a double bill choreographed by Balanchine, the experimental New York City Ballet production of Electronics included the renowned dancers Violette Verdy and Jacques dAmboise (pictured on this reissues cover art) and a revolutionary score by multi-disciplinary composer Remi Gassmann using a truly unique instrument. Working alongside German-born keyboard composer and close acquaintance Oskar Sala (with whom he had studied in Berlin under Paul Hindemith), Gassmann was given access to the latest developments of the Trautonium, an early electronic keyboard that was first exhibited in 1930 by inventor Adolf Trautwein and three pianists (including Sala). Being one of the original exponents of the machine, Sala (with Trautweins blessing) took the basic model of a neon tube oscillator and wire frequency controller (which provided an untempered continuous tonal range) and spent over twenty years developing what would become the Konzerttrautonium (as used by Richard Strauss to emulate synthetic gongs), followed by the microtonal Mixturtrautonium and eventually the static Studiotrautonium, which formed the centerpiece of Salas studio in Charlottenburg, Berlin, where Electronics was composed and realized. For the 1961 ballet, dressed in metallic bodysuits with geometric diodic motifs, Verdy and dAmboise (alongside a small troupe of other dancers) performed the concise 11-part ballet to polarized but predominantly positive audiences, generating a new outlook on experimental dance and supporting the similar sensibilities of other choreographers such as Alwin Nikolais, Yvonne Georgi (with Henk Badings), and Maurice Béjart (with Pierre Henry). As one of the first American performances drawing primarily on European developments, the modest critical success of the project would open new avenues for the electronic musical duo who were commissioned later in the year by Alfred J. Hitchcock Productions to provide enhanced and versatile sound effects emulating cacophonic bird sounds alongside Bernard Hermann for the 1963 blockbuster The Birds.” - Cacophonic.

"When psycho-spatial composer Nelson Gastaldi passed away in 2009 at the age of 77, he left behind a unique musical legacy that is only now beginning to be unveiled. A self-described musical nihilist with noble and mystic origins (as well as an accomplished visual artist), Gastaldi supported himself and his family with a job at an electric company in Buenos Aires, Argentina, while creating an astonishing body of work that went virtually unheard during his lifetime. Synthesizing his wide-ranging interests (medicine, linguistics, Chinese and German philosophy) into his music, he welcomed paranormal/initiatic experiences into the compositional process, creating homemade Sibelius-meets-Sun Ra symphonies. The only previous publication of his work was in Bananafish magazine, which featured an excerpt of Symphony No. 3 on an accompanying CD. The same issue also contained his sole English-language interview, in which he waxed: The human being runs at the side of a river. When he is young, he runs faster than the river; in mid-life he runs at the same speed as the river; and at last he falls down and the river keeps going.

When vocals break in, it’s magical and poetic, his moaning reminiscent of pre-war blues chants. Side B is a wonderful suite of free rock improvisation, wild noise, echoed vocals, a thick guitar fog, haunting nocturnal blues, cymbal crashes… a mood perfectly depicted on the cover photos, lonely, grey, apparently still, sunless port city landscape.

"Saturday Night Fever takes the concept of the movie of the same name and stretches the night a bit later, the fever a bit higher to the point where the party ends up blending into something much more sinister and wild. What starts out as a disco drumbeat with funky guitar swagger and melodic horns may slowly deteriorate into some sort of corroded ambient loop that eventually morphs into melodic horn samples. Basically every track is subverting its own gestures, carving out a narrative of interruption and stretching the disco template in directions simultaneously embracing and mocking the form. In a way, this album is a sequel to A Republic of Sadness (2010), embracing the criticisms people had of that album and expanding on those flaws. The resulting album sounds like Morleys pulling out some heaping doses of the hermit boogie and Otago funk and stretching it into some sort of Basinskian disintegration loop gone Bernard Bonnier zonked mutant scene. There are so many moves within each of the four extended tracks that it feels like that illuminated dance floor is always slipping beneath your feet.

"Twenty years is long enough: Its time to acknowledge Michael Morley as an indie-rock patriarch. And why not? As the guitarist and vocalist for New Zealand noise-trip trio The Dead C and the man behind Gate (ostensibly a solo project, although Sonic Youths Lee Ranaldo makes frequent guest appearances), Morley is the rare artist that record-hounds love to unearth: an isotope in the body Pop, radiating an invisible influence. With scores of micro-batch releases and an unmistakably intimate performance idiom, Morley ranks in the company of Jandek or Loren Connors, but its geographic isolation rather than social disengagement that has deflected his work from reaching more ears. Still, if you dont recognize his name, youve heard his reverberations, in the ambient post-rock of Flying Saucer Attack and Labraford, the neo-psychedelia of Bardo Pond, and the fidelity-challenged whorl of Pavement and Sebadoh. Recorded in 1993 and out of print since, Gates The Dew Line is the first part of his rock trilogy (followed by The Monolake in 1996 and The Wisher Table in 1999). Rock it does. Typical Gate/Dead C no-fi guitar subduction and Morleys locked-in-the-car-trunk vocals are prominent, but theres also a hefty amount of scraping synthesizer menace and paleozoic riffage. The crust of noise is there, but crack open the sonic geode and youll discover some nifty songstyling. In someone elses universe, the gem of an opening track, Millions, gets play on AM radio, while Have Not climbs the FM charts. Full of brooding atmospherics, The Dew Line is the most -- dare we say it -- accessible of any of Morleys records, and it stands on an equal footing with his Dead C high-water mark, Harsh 70s Reality, as an anti-rock rock classic." - Table Of The Elements.

Country: Belgium
Price: $27.00
"Since forming in 2008, The Gate, the trio made up of Dan Peck on tuba and amplifier, Tom Blancarte on electric upright bass, and Brian Osborne on percussion, have forged a unique and uncompromising aesthetic. The Gate seek to break down and confuse the conventional roles of a horn-bass-drums ensemble, revealing the most raw and elemental aspects of organized sound. Their music, dividing time between improvisation and Pecks compositions, ranges from bleak landscapes of near-silence to massive, horrifying sound sculptures. With three international tours and three albums under their belt, The Gate now present Stench, their fourth studio album. Recorded by engineering wizard Colin Marston at his Thousand Caves Studio in Queens, New York, it features new friends Nate Wooley on trumpet and amplifier and Tim Dahl on electric bass. The album is in many ways a continuation of the bands gloom-jazz stylings, but Wooleys impeccable sense of extemporaneous composition and Dahls psychedelic brand of bizarro-funk provide incomparable additions to the brooding nature of the music, making Stench the gnarliest and blackest experience yet from The Gate. High-quality heavy vinyl housed in an open screen printed sleeve on heavy stock. Edition of 300." - Smeraldina Rima.

Country: Netherlands
Price: $20.00
2016 repress. "Music from Memorys fourth release sees the Amsterdam-based label taking an exciting sidestep with the release of Clouds. Its the debut album from Gaussian Curve, a collaboration between Italian ambient pioneer Gigi Masin, Land of Lights Jonny Nash, and Marco Sterk (also known as Young Marco). The trio came together during a weekend-long recording session in April, 2014, with no preconceived ideas. Developed around improvised jams, the eight tracks on the album are all single-take live recordings. The three musicians succeed in developing a musical language all of their own, with Gigi Masin on Rhodes and piano; Jonny Nash on guitar, melodica, synths, and trumpet; and Marco Sterk on synths, rhythmic structures, and production duties. Recorded in the heart of Amsterdams red-light district, the album reflects the unusually warm spring and the buzz from the open windows that filled the derelict downtown studio space during that particular weekend. And on the more introverted late-night compositions, the music quietly soars, reflecting the brooding melancholy of an evening in that particular part of the city. Clouds is a simple, heartfelt record of an inspired meeting of unique souls in unique surroundings." - Music From Memory.

Title: Synthetic Woman

Label: Medical
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"As a monumental first time in the labels existence, Medical Records presents an LP of previously unreleased songs by an icon of Italo Disco and synthpop well known for their club-stomper Im A Vocoder. Gay Cat Park is an Italian duo consisting of Graziano G. Ravizza and Davide Gatti. At the tender age of 14 with an obsession for electronics and a dream, they crafted the hit Im A Vocoder that was released as a single on Discotto Records in 1982. Using very primitive toy-like keyboards modified to makeshift synthesizers early on, this masterpiece and floor-stomper was a success. Though they recorded many other records in the studio with other artists under a variety of different names in the more popular vein, there were sadly no further releases in the style of Gay Cat Park or under that moniker. Working behind the scenes on their limited equipment, they wrote and developed many other tracks that would be best described as the true Gay Cat Park sound. These tracks were home-recorded and not considered commercial enough in those times. Influenced heavily by Kraftwerk, Tomita, and Depeche Mode, Ravizza and Gatti layed these tracks down on standard UCXS Sony tapes or TEAC Tascam four tracks. These tracks have been unheard and stored until now. Medical Records took an interest in Gay Cat Park and requested to hear the potential early tracks. Needless to say, the tracks were astonishing and are presented now on this compilation of hand-picked tracks from that era. 8 tracks (including Im A Vocoder) were culled and restored from the original cassette tapes by Gay Cat Park. All tracks were recorded from 1982-1984. On high-quality 160 gram splatter vinyl in a limited edition of 650 hand-numbered copies. Includes special insert with liner notes by Dave Segal." -Medical.

Format: LP

Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"With GazHeart, celebrated visual artist Rita Ackermann (voice) & the No Neck Blues Bands Dave Nuss (found percussion) created a playful spontaneous sound that seemingly bridged the gap between the broken pop sounds of certain strains of the no wave movement, sound poetry and catchy, otherworldly art folk using the barest of resources available to them. The GazHeart recordings were made in August of 2004 after the disintegration of Angelblood at ATP in April. Rita and I traveled every August to Budapest to be with her family, who live in the hills outside the city in a small German village called Budaörs, created after WWII. The mise-en-scene of our life there was total village simplicity -- grandmas cooking, dogs running the streets, babies with leaky diapers on big wheels, and gypsies hanging out in bars. We would go every Sunday morning to the gypsy market where the vendors would spread out a bunch of garbage on blankets in a parking lot, all the proprietors drunk by 10am on wine consumed from coke bottles. At the time of recording, Rita had adopted the surrealist idea of automatic, unmediated writing direct from the unconscious, using spontaneous text to create song-like atmospheres, in the spirit of Tristan Tzara. For the percussion, I wound up keeping it simple and true to the environs: a bucket, a glass jar, a coffee can & a straw broom. All recordings were made to magnetic tape in the back yard late at night after the village was sleeping." - Dave Nuss. "One time pressing of this special edition one-sided LP features an original etching by visual artist Rita Ackermann on the flip side.

After that came out head Geek Radley H. sent us another collection of unreleased stuff and after a year or two of shock, we wiped the glaze from our eyes and got this pup together. These cuts were recorded in 1979 & 1980 and both have a seemingly subdued intensity to them. Too Fat Pig, sung by 15 year old Lydia Kindheart, sounds like the Inflatable Boy Clams done by some revolutionary free jazz ensemble. For many years the Geeks lived in a house across the way from San Quentin State Prison and would watch relatives line up to visit their imprisoned family members, hence Visiting Day at San Quentin, one of the angriest, creepiest, most intense songs Ive ever heard.

His height didnt fit into a normal-sized bed as well as his musical dimensions were too far out to fit into the mainstream taste of the masses. It was wonderful to hike with him in the Hindukush mountains up the Salang Pass. Afghanistan was a very peaceful and hospitable country before the westerners destroyed this unique paradise." Every time Hartmut Geerken unveils one of the many tapes he recorded and archived in his extraordinary life, its an incredible gift. Listening to these tunes almost 40 years after they were recorded, especially in the moment when John Tchicai stops playing and start his wild high-pitched singing, will really make you feel dizzy.

During his six-year stay in Egypt in the 60s, he co-founded (together with Salah Ragab and Edu Vizvari) the Cairo Jazz Band as well as the Cairo Free Jazz Ensemble, played in various music groups: Embryo, a trio with John Tchicai and Don Moye (extensive tour of Africa) and also with the Art Ensemble of Chicago. He worked with Sunny Murray, Don Cherry, Okay Termiz, Peter Kowald, Takehisa Kosugi, Toshi Ichiyanagi, Michael Ranta, etc. Today Geerken possesses one of the most comprehensive Sun Ra archives. His book Omniverse Sun Ra (1994) , which contains the first all-embracing discography of the musician, has meanwhile grown to be a priceless cult book. Together with James Wolf from the Library Of Congress in Washington D.C., he is editor of the recently published collected poems and philosophical works of Sun Ra (The Immeasurable Equation, 2005). This is Geerkens first-ever solo release (a major event indeed!) and it was recorded under the influence of magic mushrooms (dried amanita muscaria). One of the instruments played here is Sun Ras Sun harp (a Bulgarian bandura), which Sun Ra gave him in 1971 in Egypt, where Hartmut invited the Arkestra to play. They didnt get any money to fly back to the States, so Hartmut kindly borrowed them some bread for the trip back... in exchange, Sun Ra gave him his Sun harp (which youd hear on several Saturn LPs and which was one of the few instruments that Sun Ra played besides keyboards) saying Ill buy it back from you one day... which evidently never happened. The other string instrument played here is a swarmandal, which was given to him in 1976 in New Delhi by the renowned Dhrupad singers: the Dagar brothers.

"Holiday Records presents Orpheus by Hartmut Geerken. Fantastic sound poetry piece by Hartmut Geerken restringing the "Sun Harp", the Ukranian bandura that Sun Ra gave him in 1971 when he visited Egypt for the first time. The acoustics of his manual workings emerge without any esthetic intention: the banduras voluminous resonating body forms the reverb of the room. Each manual action and each contact of the tuning key with the wooden body is "reverbed". The instrument creates its audio space. A mythic dream play is evoked: the myths space of reverb. An ear ready to absorb, hears the labor pains of voice and string ahead of language and music. A human voice in search for language and thus for communication. A string instrument in search for sound and thus for music. Based on this phonemic pre-space, words do rise only sporadically. Through certain techniques of vocal chords the phonemes move close to the meditative Indian Dhrupad-singing, as well as to lunacy and disturbance. Animal languages, signals, shepherds calls, silvered drum-language, ham-boning, calls, litany, subconscious voicings, sirens: the search for Eurydike and the search for the origin of letter and syllable, out of the breath. Besides one single "superimposition" no further mounting, no computer-generated sounds, no digital gimmicks, no remix or art mix do exist in this live-recorded dream play.

Title: Preemptive Musical Offerings To Satisfy Our Future Masters
Format: LP
Label: Gagarin
Country: Germany
Price: $30.00
"For his next release on Felix Kubins Gagarin Records, multi-instrumentalist Adi Gelbart delivers twelve Preemptive Musical Offerings To Satisfy Our Future Masters. With a spiraling musical complexity reminiscent of film scores, BBC Radiophonic Workshop, library music, criminal swing, Russian vitamins, tinnitus twist, abstract jazz and musique concrète, Gelbart surpasses himself this time by augmenting his palette of instruments to the extent where he becomes a small orchestra. "The Source" of his musical identity plays "The Message" of synths, broken organs, harpsichord (!), double bass, horns, cymbals and crispy drum machines. Its a "Spacetime Reverie," where "Tsuburaya" blows "Leaves For Gamera" while "He Who Speaks Through Pyramids" walks through "Echoville" with "Dust" on his shoes, contemplating the "Birth Of Alpha" after "The Big Sleep." While humming to songs of the second moon, the "Harpsichord Automata" leads "The March Of The Thinking Machines" to a blissful silver big bang. The LP comes in a beautifully designed sleeve with cover artwork by Berlin-based German illustration star Benedikt Rugar, who has contributed to newspapers such as The New York Times and Spiegel, as well as numerous animation film festivals. A download card is included with the purchase of the record." - Gagarin.

Title: Split

Label: Crippled Intellect

Price: $18.50
"Both Francisco Lopez and Michael Gendreau are extremely well known sound artists with dedicated fan bases throughout the United States, Western and Eastern Europe, and Japan. Francisco Lopez is perhaps best known for his dynamic studio and live performances that sway between crushing silence and dynamic, shifting volume swells. A trained acoustician, Gendreau uses extremely refined microphones - designed for acoustic and vibrational research - to record sounds such as turntable motor hum, belts, and run out grooves on records more than 70 years old to create incredibly rich recordings. Gendreaus side is an incredible journey through a forest of alternately prickly and soothing sounds generated from turntable motor hum, belts, and run out grooves. Lopez used similar source material for his side, creating a beautiful oceanic wall of sound based (predominantly) on crackle, hum, and scratches." - C.I.P.

"Following her acclaimed 2014 debut LP, Not So Deep As a Well (FTR 146-3LP), Montreals Myriam Gendron has created musical settings for another pair of Dorothy Parker poems -- Bric a Brac and The Small Hours. The slow, sensuously beautiful combination of Myriams voice and guitar, combined with dolorous genius of Parkers words is as intimate as ever. The pairing is seamless and natural, conveying an instant warmth that is a wonderful way to see out the winter, hailing the spring on our doorstep, with hints of the endless circle of seasons to follow. With a letterpressed sleeve and insert by the brilliant Kiva Tanya Stimac of Popolo Press, this record is a rare and special object." --Byron Coley, 2015

Title: Not So Deep as a Well (Myriam Gendron Sings Dorothy Parker)
Format: LP
Label: Feeding Tube
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
2016 version on black vinyl. "The debut LP by Montreals Myriam Gendron is one of 2014s signature releases. Feeding Tube had previously been made aware of Myriam when she performed at the Michael Hurley cover tune showcase at the Casa del Popolo. That event, tied to lOie de Cravans publication of The Words to the Songs of Michael Hurley, introduced Myriam as a wonderful if spectral guitarist and singer, whose signature sound was as light as it was intoxicating. Her next performance was an event including the American poet Charles Plymell, and she debuted a set of material based on the poems of Dorothy Parker. Everyone was blown away. Plymell and Gerard Malanga were effusive in their praise of her work, and when a tape fell into the hands of Richard Meltzer, he agreed that Myriams approach to the material attained a singularity of loss that had not yet been approached. The set was a stun gun, set on its highest possible notch. It blew away anything similar, and achieved a wordy beauty that both buggered description and celebrated itself. Parkers poetry -- though little-known in comparison to her prose -- offers many possibilities of both beauty and humor. Myriam grabs every edge availed to her, and does so beautifully. This album glows with holism and is one of the most beautiful evocations of times past and present and future you will hear. Edition of 500." - Byron Coley.

These recordings were originally released on cassette by Touch in 1984 with the exception of "Parts Of My Body," released on a single by Canal Records in 1979. Performed by: Steve Beresford (bass, piano, Farfisa organ, Prophet 5, trumpet, flugelhorn, euphonium, percussion, glockenspiel, voice, toy piano, melodica, noises, rhythm tracks, drumkit), David Toop (guitar, prepared guitar, bass, percussion, flute, alto flute, glockenspiel, voice, tapes, noises, rhythm tracks), David Cunningham (tape treatments) with guests: Lol Coxhill, Dawn Roberts and Maartje Ten Hoorn. "The atmosphere which General Strike conjures together suits an old-fashioned, Cold War-ish scenario of technology. Their Interplanetary Music is the space-pop of George Pal and The Day The Earth Stood Still, of computers built like Blackpool Tower in order to struggle through simple trigonometry, of The Jetsons and I.G.Y. They go no further than Expo 67, the worlds last gasp of optimism. And although there are dark and disquieting moods set in this mosaic which their listeners have pieced together, it is made with a humor which is true to the spirit of adventure which those references apply. The sanitation merchants who make up most of the worlds record-makers today would forbid our ears from hearing these strangely electric keyboards, earthworked textures, bizarre chatterings of percussion, and voices that seem like puzzled robots. Cataloguing the sound in that way makes it all seem a bit of a joke, but it isnt: laughter is encouraged, but its serious music, made with a great deal more serious spirit than the great and disheartening mountain of music which today implores you to hear and not listen." -Richard Cook

GEDDES GENGRAS steps out on his own for a proper full-length, operating under his god-given name. Here Gengras lets loose with two LP sides of sprawling synthscapes. Test Leads calls to mind Klaus Schulzes Dune album or perhaps the Dune soundtrack scored by Toto and Brian Eno, but will also appeal to fans of Conrad Schnitzler and Manuel Gottsching, as well as Robert Hampson (Loop, Main), Bill Laswell, Roger Eno and Nurse With Wound. Thrown into the mix is some Sky Records / Wolfgang Riechmann-style (cold) poppiness. In a contemporary setting, Gengras could share a bill with anyone from the modern indie / pop / weirdo / drone scenes and fit right in. His suites range from odd pinball-esque plinking to cold, dystopian soundscapes, touching on all points between; Test Leads would sound good alongside releases on Mordant Music, Touch Music or Innovative Communication. These tracks could easily score the original Tron, The Black Hole or just about any episode of Nova. Includes digital download coupon." -Holy Mountain/Intercoastal Artists.

Title: Det Kritiske Punkt
Format: LP

Price: $18.00
"Spine-tingling free improv fire-blast from an international quartet with deep underground roots. Italian reeds player Genta and drummer Vanzan form the basis for all Jooklo aktion (Duo, Golden, Stellar, et al.). Norwegian reeds dude Stiberg and guitar/electronics manager Jon Wesseltoft also collaborate in Maranata. Together in Olso in 2012, the quartet laid down this very hard-blown and stylish session. There are let-ups in the attack, but there arent many. Broken into five parts, Det Kritiske Punkt (The Critical Point) surges along like an unbroken chain of climaxes. Even when one or two of the instruments start to move laterally, as though things are preparing to wind down, the other two almost invariably get more sput in their gutteral sails and start to howl like their brain stalks are under attack. The only real break comes on Pt. III where it starts to sound like one of the AACMs little instrument jamborees. But that is a feint. Soon enough youll feel your scalp begin to raise again. And its off to the races we go. One does not generally think of the Italians and the Norwegians forming an affinity group. But they do share a love of fish. And perhaps sometimes thats enough." --Byron Coley, 2015.

Sealed original copies of this 1981 release. “The ever diligent P-Rex diggers have unearthed yet another batch of original stock LPs of minimal synthesizer compostitions. We were able to obtain the first two albums by the one and only Geodesium directly from the groups in-house label Loch Ness Productions. Get the full scoop from the label here:

"Double Eclipse, the second Geodesium album, was produced in 1981. NASA used some of the selections during its TV coverage of the Voyager Encounters at Saturn and Uranus. It consists of nine electronically-realized musical compositions. Of the five original works, one is a clever bouncy tune featuring two electronic "dancers" and a synthesizer rock drummer. Two space-music-style pieces musically explore the inter-galactic reaches. Another work is a driving and intense rocker, and one is the worlds first electronic-disco-bluegrass combination — a real toe-tapper! There are four transcriptions: J. S. Bach and Johannes Pachelbel for the classical music enthusiast, and two contemporary works by Wilke Renwick and W. Francis McBeth."

If you dig the Bil Vermette "Katha Visions" LP we re-issued in 2013 or Neil deGrasse Tysons reimagining of the Cosmos series and hypnotic, meditative synthesizer space music then hop to it gang cuz these Geodesium records were made to be played at planetariums!

Title: 38:38
Format: LP
Label: Drag City
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"38:38 is the lone release of THE GEORGE-EDWARDS GROUP, an autumnal alien soundtrack that, over thirty years after being recorded (but not really released) defies time and categorization. If youve never heard of it before, that just means its rare, right? This makes  38:38 one of the rarest private press albums of all time. 38:38 departs from the norm of the genre: instead of a low-fi demo-quality outing elevated mainly by dealer hype, its a haunting piece of music that offers an unusually highbrow take on the archetypal Midwestern rocknroll existentialism usually addressed with a solid beat and sneering vocal. Crafting their sound out of the many influences of the day, EDWARD BALIAN and RAY GEORGE created pop music with acoustic guitars and harmonies, heavily-reverberant piano riffs, cold sheets of synthesizer, bells and chimes. Operating amidst the factory-charred grime of late 1960s Detroit, Balian and Georges first group was the garage-rock obscurity ANDROMEDA, regularly sharing bills with local heroes like The Frost, Rationals, and Amboy Dukes. Unlike these groups, Balian and George spiked their guitar blowouts with incongruous sound-on-sound experiments whose strangeness recalled lounge/exotica records of the 1950s. Too heady for the Motor City hard rock scene, they gradually lost interest in the restriction of playing all-covers gigs and turned to the basement, powered with multi-track tape recorders, processors and Moog synthesizers, flanging and phasing heavily with space effects and backwards loops, leaving a fair share of destroyed microphones and tape machines in their experimental wake." - Drag City.

"Drag City and Galactic Zoo Disks first turned the world on to The George-Edwards Group in 2009, with their never-exactly-released late 70s alien autumnal song-scape 38.38. Their music is singular and great, and like you, we assumed that was their one, definitive statement. Un-till...this new Archives release contains a treasure trove of bizarre riches spanning from the 38:38-era to what appears to be the mid-80s (well never know for sure -- and we dont have to, the stuff is sublimely wack in a manner that requires no further explanation). The music that makes Archives is a more rocking version of The George-Edwards sound. The tremulous, strangely timbered vocals are still their signature, but this time theyre atop a few highly compressed and fuzzed-out rock cuts, as well as several synthed-out dirges that would make Suicide, Bruce Haack or Cabaret Voltaire cock an ear (and make all these new coldwave bands blush to their shallow roots!). Also within are the murky analog keyboard bloops which all but define the GE sound, as well as ballads that make one wish there was an entirely different language to describe musical forms. Archives is the second miraculous LP from The George-Edwards Group archives that will keep your jaw agape for the rest of the year. What year? What year is it?

Title: All Kind Music

Country: USA
Price: $15.00
“On All Kind Music, NYC production duo Georgia (Brian Close and Justin Tripp) return for their third full length: ECM-era Don Cherry global jazz meets contemporary electronic avant-garde, true world dance music for the next millennium.
With guest turns on every track, Georgia explore a new approach to studio production, incorporating the sounds of world and jazz music into their digital funk and combining and processing improvisation and composed elements to create a unified, distinct voice. This approach can be heard on “Ama Yes Uzume,” as a primally incandescent vocal from Caroline Polachek (Chairlift) blends with glistening waves of piano and synth to form a euphoric rhythm that materializes out of curved air. Blending live performance with sampling and editing, Georgia constantly revise and revisit their work, breaking down, collaging, and refracting sounds.
On lead track “Slow Dance,” vocals by performance artist India Menuez waft over a loping bass line (sampled from a performance by Matt Werth of RVNG) while digital flutes cluster in the background. The outcome is a kind of new age mutant funk, not unlike the sound of Annette Peacock or 23 Skidoo jamming in the studio with Jon Hassell. Additional collaborators include avant-garde harpist Mary Lattimore, saxophonist Wednesday Knudsen, and Gabonese vocalist Abang Essone Sarah Maya. As the title suggests, this is music of many multitudes.” - Palto Flats.

"Radio is an audio compass; the radio antennae, a divining rod. Positioned anywhere, it opens an exclusive window directly into the location in which it sits. Signals received on the medium wave (AM) and FM bands reveal programming intended for a local population by governmental, independent, pirate, or corporate media broadcasters. Anything from low-powered ethnic minority transmissions, high-powered westernized pop stations, and omnipresent state-run radio can be found on these bands. Shortwave bands expand the breadth and scope, pulling in regional and international receptions. Everything received factors into the experience. Music, news, talk shows, advertisements, station IDs, cross-phased interference, errant or intentional static-generated sounds, distant detritus, and random broadcast anomalies all become equally relevant. This disc continues the Sublime Frequencies locale-specific radio collage series with Vietnamese radio recordings culled and assembled from signals received in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City between December 2013 and November 2014. Inside the 70-minute program are moments of outstanding folkloric, traditional, and pop music, including performances on the electric guitar and the dan bau (a one-stringed guitar-like instrument), eclectic Vietnamese folk and rock stylings, dramatic effects-laden radio theater and musical segues, new wave pop forays, traditional percussion and vocal chants, news segments, dynamic radio bumpers, jingles and advertisements, comedic interludes, phoned-in karaoke sing-a-longs, English-language programming, early-morning exercise regimens, and coded messages from the outer ether. The grand total sum of these radio recordings doesnt aim to present a certified ethnographic study of contemporary Vietnam. Rather, the material here aims to distill and replicate the excitement, engagement, and discovery gained during heavy exposure to Vietnamese broadcasts over an eleven-month period during the teenage years of the twenty-first century. CD comes in a beautiful digipak with full color images, a booklet, and liner notes by Mark Gergis, who recorded, compiled, sequenced, and produced the project for Sublime Frequencies on location in Vietnam." - Sublime Frequencies.

"350 gram sleeve. Part of Sub Rosas Early Electronics series. During the 1950s and 1960s, Roberto Gerhard gathered a significant magnetic tape collection in his home studio, creating a major repository of early electronic sound recordings of his own works. The pieces on this record present a complex set of challenges for audio restoration, requiring a complete understanding of his compositional process and allowing the spirit and vitality of his electronic work to speak clearly to the listener. The versions of the pieces you will hear on this record represent an attempt to present Gerhards musical thoughts as free as possible from distracting technical deficiencies that obscure the musical content of the tapes. To this end a number of processes have been employed to reduce tape hiss and broadband noise, clicks, crackle, mains hum, tape splices and low frequency thuds, ranging from automated algorithms to a more painstaking manual clean-up of the audio spectrum. Every process of musical audio restoration must seek a compromise between the removal of elements that are problematic to the modern listener, and the preservation of the vital sonic and musical characteristics of the recordings. Roberto Gerhard (b. 1896; d. 1970) was born in Valls, Spain. Initially he studied piano with Granados and composition with Felipe Pedrell. When Pedrell died in 1922, Gerhard moved to Vienna as a pupil of Arnold Schoenberg. Returning to Barcelona in 1928, he became a central figure in the Catalonian avant-garde, befriending such figures as Pablo Casals and Joan Miró. Identified with the Republican cause throughout the Spanish Civil War, Gerhard was forced to flee to France in 1939 and later that year settled in Cambridge, England. Once in England, Gerhard produced a series of orchestra and stage works that would establish his international reputation. The Symphony (in memory of Pedrell), the ballet Don Quixote, First String Quartet, and the opera The Duenna followed in quick succession. In the 1950s Gerhard developed his musical style, synthesizing Schoenbergian serialism with Catalan folksong. These years also marked him out as the first composer in England to engage seriously with electronic music. Gerhard worked extensively at the newly-formed BBC Radiophonic Workshop producing a series of abstract electronic works as well as electronic music for stage -- most notably his score for the 1955 Royal Shakespeare Production of King Lear. The last decade of his life saw Gerhards musical language evolve still further and the composition of late masterpieces such as the Symphony No. 3 "Collages" which includes a significant tape part, Symphony No. 4 "New York," the chamber symphony Leo, and the masterly Concerto for Orchestra." - Sub Rosa.

"This 70s German dark doomy basement psychedelic album is... I dont know... what "Stone Harbor" would have sounded like if those 2 guys had been members of the National Socialist party(?)... a favorite of mine that I have trouble giving a 100% recommendation to as it can appear to be sort of aimless depressing noodling if youre not in the mood; and if you ARE in "the mood" for this your friends are probably worried about you." - Stan Denski. "But what is the sound of a group that was so rejected during its time of recording? Well, imagine a brutally recorded, brazen and ultra-skeletal industrial white funk played with all the claw-handed crowbar technique of the Red Crayola recording their famous "Hurricane Fighter Plane," over which is superimposed the what-instrument-could-that-be rumblings of Gunther Schickerts G.A.M. meeting the Electronic Meditation incarnation of early-T. Dream. That is the sound of German Oak. Imagine Fausts reverb-y schoolroom in Wumme being party to a jam between Riot-period Sly Stone on itchy-scratchy bass and the pre-Kraftwerk ensemble Organisation (specifically "Milk Rock"), without their being formally introduced, and with all the hang-ups that this would entail. Again, this is the sound of German Oak." - Julian Cope.

Price: $16.00
"Formed by STEPHEN SCHEATZLE and SANDY STARK (aka MARK HUTCHINSON), GERMAN SHEPHERDS grew out of San Franciscos art-punk scene in the early 80s. Their first single, "I Adore You," is a lost minimal synth nugget with an unforgettable rhythm box pattern, and their second, "THC," showcases Starks menacing and child-like vocals. Music for Sick Queers (originally released in 1985) brings together these and more beautifully disturbing songs with electronic noise reminiscent of Allen Ravenstine (Pere Ubu) and the best of The Residents, Suicide and Psychic TV. While more tracks would appear on compilations, such as Mykel Boards infamous The "Youll Hate This Record" Record, German Shepherds themselves virtually disappeared as their self-released album went out-of-print for decades. After years of searching the catacombs, Superior Viaduct finally caught up with only surviving member, Stark, and uncovered the bands secret history growing up in Ohio. This first-time reissue comes from the original master tapes and features a special bonus 7-inch containing previously unreleased material plus archival inserts and a digital download card." -Superior Viaduct.

Title: s/t

Price: $22.00
"Penultimate Press is proud to release a unique vinyl of the only known recordings by Danish artist Poul Gernes.

Poul Gernes only ever recorded just under 20 minutes of music. His entire musical production is therefore on this LP. The recording was done on a Tandberg Recorder at Poul Gernes house in the south of Sweden in 1969. He is playing an old harmonium salvaged from a local primary school. The result is an informal quasi­-drone work, which, along with the ambient sounds and domestic interference, comes across as a snapshot of the recording itself, a sonic Polaroid. Poul Gernes (1925­-1996) was one of the central figures in Danish art life during the latter half of the twentieth century. His experimental art holds a firm place on an international level and as one of the founders of the legendary Den Eksperimenterende Kunstskole (The Experimenting Art School) he has exerted considerable influence on a whole generation of artists who make up the Danish post war avant­ garde. His wide-ranging body of work is still a source of inspiration for younger generations of artists in Denmark and abroad. This recording was initiated by John Hunov who was the chairman of Ung Dansk Kunst (Young Danish Art) an association for the presentation and publication of many Danish artists of the period. A series of cassettes were commissioned as a supply on demand service prompting Poul Gernes to instigate a musical work. The recording was done during a prolific period of creativity and lingers in the current spirit of endless possibilities. The combination of an old harmonium and a tape recorder manifests a yet untried option: why not compose music as well? A childs voice, his daughter Ulrikka, is heard making small remarks and pointing out when the needle enters the red. This audial domestic background is too included as an incidental yet natural part of the work as Poul Gernes saw no limit between art and life. Poul Gernes major musical inspirations at the time were J.S. Bach, Terry Riley and Gregorian chant. An alleged encounter with John Cage and close collaborations with, for instance, composer and Fluxus artist Henning Christiansen are likely to have encouraged the musical endeavour. During the 1960s Poul Gernes also made a large number of happenings and performances, together with amongst others Per Kirkeby and Joseph Beuys. Originally issued in a miniscule edition on cassette in 1969 this was re-issued in 1998 as a very limited edition CDR via John Nixons Document Records, Australia. This is the first vinyl issue of these recordings.

Poul Gernes comes as limited edition one sided lp of 400 copies. A beautiful etching of a Gernes painting appears on the b-side and all is packaged in a full colour sleeve retaining the nature of the recording itself. Also includes an insert with a list of Pouls hypothetical track titles." - Penultimate Press. For more information on Poul Gernes: http://www.gernes.dk

Title: Moenai Hai
Format: Cass
Label: Irrational Arts
Country: UK
Price: $10.00
Limited edition of 150 copies. “Having basically dropped off the face of the earth fifteen years ago, Juntaro Yamanouchi givesMoenai Hai a sense of enigma: some contextual food for thought, and some inconclusive ideas. The sudden, low-hype release of Moenai Hai leads one to believe that The Gerogerigegeges creative driving force is conflicted, but dedicated, presenting something that needed to be said, but not how Yamanouchi might normally say it. Its sorta futile to outline The Gerogerigegeges typical modes of communication, as they range from onstage vacuum-cleaner masturbation to coprophagia, but by contrast, their newest offering is bizarrely sombre and deliberate. The album seeps with solitude and incongruity, made all the more effective at the hands of an artist known for being unabashedly honest. After the sloppy, self-aware half-heartedness of 2001s Saturdaynight Big Cock Salaryman, the sense of introspection on Moenai Hai is powerful.
Opener “Out of Saiga” consists of a light, rumbly texture and concrète noises, resembling an indeterminate city setting. It bears all the intimidation of a metropolis with none of the bustling life, as though the protagonist is walking down a street with their eyes closed, able to shut out all human noise within a ten-mile radius, allowing the crushing ambience of the distant background to settle. The metallic creaks and groans resemble derelict playground equipment, perhaps symbolizing how Yamanouchi has grown detached with his youth, but is nonetheless a shell of it, via his more raucous previous work that hangs over him like a cloud - only speculation, though. Eponymous follow-up “The Gerogerigegege”, allegedly composed over thirty years ago, hits with the impact of waking up in a surging electric chair. The heavy, shoegazey riff is a complete contrast to the opener, and charges the track with endless energy. At times, the main riff falls to the back, as JY delivers emotive, noisy guitar improvisations like a monologue overtop a shadowed, moving frame - this frame being a sweaty audience, totally unaware of the random mental sidestep. The outro is an extended tremolo fury, like the few seconds before a guitarist finishes a song with one final, explosive chord, only it never comes, as though JY is savouring it for all its worth. Titled appropriately, it typifies the physicality of The Gerogerigegege, but with the albums emotional hardships in tow.
Yet another complete 180, “Tokyo: Sea of Loser / Donors for USA” is minimalist, droning piano work, where each stroke coincides with empty space. While the emotional component works in conjunction with the albums themes - especially a sense of spacial limbo - its face-value worth is slightly ruined by an unnecessary runtime; it starts with boring dark ambient, endures twenty-ish minutes of boring dark ambient, and finishes with boring dark ambient. It conveys a feeling of being forgotten, and stuck in a weird transitory state; its the aftermath of nothingness. Its just a weird inclusion, as closer “Final Tuning” accomplishes what it couldnt, and actually bears the innuendo of the crushing title track, as though the disaster still hangs in the air. The music box is a significant post-tramatic symbol, as the childlike musical plaything seems oblivious to the subsided musical chaos; the presence of “Tokyo: Sea of Loser / Donors for USA” is all the more frustrating. In a way, the irresolution might be compared to Yamanouchis lengthy withdrawal and possible self-discovery - again, only speculation.
Despite being stylistically all-over-the-place, and hindered by “Tokyo: Sea of Loser / Donors for USA” s elongation breaking up the flow, Moenai Hai is a compelling reflection of Juntaro Yamanouchis absence. In hindsight, whats perhaps most interesting about Moenai Hai is the tragedy of its tameness. This is the same person that created Tokyo Anal Dynamite, and left a legacy of untouchable lunacy, baffling those who didnt immediately peg his output as nonsense. This is The Gerogerigegege trying for an uncertain audience, with an uncertain message, for uncertain response, and no recourse. Its the sound of a broken man dismantling.” - Sputnikmusic.

"Well-documented as one of Frank Zappas favorite ever groups and instantly recognizable as the blueprint of 80s Mancunian electro pop, the inflated alter-egos of Gerry & The Holograms (and their unrivaled brand of conceptual sarcastic synth pop) successfully remodeled, ridiculed, and redefined plugged-in punk before hitting the self-destruct button and burying the evidence under a pile of hand-mutilated microgrooves for over 35 wet summers. Having risen from the electronic embers of Manchesters first genuine psychedelic band, via Vertigo commissioned prog and experimental theater, then refined through the musical mind behind the most inspired vinyl moments of Martin Hannett, John Cooper Clarke, and Jilted John - the discography of the GATH anti-band remains unrivaled as the most idiosyncratic and enigmatic pivotal post-punk artifact from the first electronic entrenchment of pop. The first-and-only listenable two track record by this masked art-rock studio duo, entitled Meet The Dissidents, originally appeared in record racks in 1979, selling-out instantly only to be sequel-ized by a totally unplayable situationist-inspired follow-up which was glued into its own sleeve destroying the grooves in the process (rivalling that of Peter Saville and Durutti Columns Debordist sandpaper re-hash by at least three years). With a life-span shorter than the hours on their studio bill, the band would find bedfellows amongst other incognito groups like Naffi Sandwich, The Mothmen, and Blah Blah Blah within the Absurd Records stable - a daring Mancunian imprint that sat awkwardly between older and younger half-sister labels Rabid and Relentless. With an 11 release library of mostly non-returning faceless atonal electronic punk/DIY industrial bands, Absurd would spearhead and pre-empt the subsequent decades of Mancunian independent record labels that followed in the footsteps of the more commercially successful Factory Records. Despite just one official title to their name however, the true identity behind Gerry And The Holograms would unify those sister-labels and collectively play an important supporting role in Manchesters independent music history with a story which goes back as far as most rain soaked memories can attempt to forget. On Thursday July 2, 2015, The Guardian Newspaper published an article with the snappy title "The Great RocknRoll Swindle - 10 Classic Stolen Pop Songs From Saint Louis Blues To Blue Monday" in which journalist Clinton Heylin made the claim that "If Blue Monday had a starting point, it was Gerry and the Holograms" illustrating the vivid similarities between the two tracks." - Cache Cache.

"At sunset on the night of October 9th, 2006, a crowd gathered at Nippon Yusen Soko, a converted warehouse space located on Yokahama Bay. Their purpose: to see and hear new music played by Ghost. Once they had completely arrived, the doors were shut and locked and the announcement made: no one would enter or exit the space until the performance was complete. Starting in complete darkness, the performance was spun, like yarn from a cocoon. The set for this evening was not just new to the audience. For this event, Ghost played entirely improvised material. Improvisation is the wellspring of creation for Ghost, both live and in the studio, though theyve never made an entire album of improvisations until now. In order to not miss a single inspiration, Ghost brought their orchestras-worth of instrumentation, playing bass, drums, piano, electric and acoustic guitars, saxophones, flute, tin-whistle, bells, frame drums, lute, tabla-baya, waterphone and even tapes! The performance space was chosen for its sonic qualities such as natural reverb as well as its resemblance to Potala Palace in Lhasa -- an ancient meditation retreat. Band members were spaced apart to prevent eye contact and allow distance for the reverberations to unfold between them -- which in turn, were recorded by four microphones spaced distantly from the band and faced toward the walls, in order to catch the sound in the room with the audience present as well as the echo of that sound. The CD performance is an edited version of the evenings events -- but the DVD is a completely live, four-camera view into the collective journey of Ghost and their audience. In addition to the sounds and sights of the band in action, the viewer will also experience the atmospheres created by Overheads, whose far-ranging light works (and subtle placement of a lace curtain) enhanced the mood within Nippon Yusen Soko that night."

"Originally issued in 1999, this is the third edition of this much sought-after CD, which has been unavailable since 2002. The Parapsychic Acoustic Research Cooperative [PARC], in association with Ash International, is proud to present the first-ever fully comprehensive investigation into the paranormal phenomenon of EVP, otherwise known as Electronic Voice Phenomenon. Without a doubt, EVP falls into the category of the paranormal alongside other unexplained mysteries such as Ufology, life after death and poltergeist activity. The listener is guided through a collection of strange and mysterious voices that have appeared without explanation onto the tapes of EVP researchers. Included with the CD is a 12-page booklet containing commissioned articles which cover the conflicting views surrounding the phenomena. Actual voice samples are reproduced here such as: polyglot voices, Public Service Broadcasting, interruptions across the airwaves, singing voices, instant response voices, and the extraordinary alien voices. The CD also includes a commentary by the artist Leif Elggren (in English), and recordings of the work of Raymond Cass, Englands leading EVP researcher and an original member of the Fortean Group, as well as the Latvian EVP researcher, Dr. Konstanin Raudive. This CD release seeks to present the evidence; are the voices extraterrestrial, paranormal evidence of our telepathic powers, or an elaborate hoax perpetrated by sinister and powerful groups to mislead us from their true aims? Ghostly, disembodied voices crackle through the airwaves surrounded by a haze of electronic mist. This recording not only peaks the curiosity of paranormal-buffs, but will appeal to any fan of electroacoustic sound experimentation, spoken word, and short-wave radio random noise." - Ash.

"The small towns of Californias northern Central Valley have an eerie loneliness to them. Cinematically, take Two-Lane Blacktop and fuse it with Neil Youngs Human Highway. Fix that into music and youd get something like Ghostwriter. Odd rock & roll from Orland, California, the home of the dearly departed Nothing People (and theater organ legend George Wright), Ghostwriter lurks in the dust-caked shadows of rusted old cars and obsolete, solid state, electronic instruments. The Chrome-meets-psych sounds of the Nothing People is there, with some haunted rockabilly à la Alan Vega, Residents-like wooziness, and something that conjures the words paranoid closet. These outsider/loner rock sounds will be listened to for years to come." - S-S.

"During a sabbatical from regular duties in THE SKYGREEN LEOPARDS, GLENN DONADLSON (never one to rest) dreamt of GIANT SKYFLOWER BAND, an exotic, flowery and crumbling new recording project with nods to fruity new age, psych, prog, folk, and pop songwriting. Donaldson quickly invited multi-instrumentalist SHAYDE SARTIN "smoke marijuana & make up strange pop songs," and thus the band was born. With Gongs seminal "Magick Brother" as a starting point and a sitar close at hand, the duo created a dark, peregrine pop transmission from their shoddy analog recording studio in San Francisco. The duos debut offering examines in detail the idiom of Bummer Psych; the strain of damaged Anglo-pop music pioneered by Syd Barrett that arguably reached its apex with The Television Personalities Painted Word LP in the mid-80s." - Soft Abuse.

Following the appetizer of the two 12" singles "Trinidad (Disco Mix)" and "JOuvert," EM Records now serves up the main dish, the fine 1977 album Steel Funk by John Gibbs And The Unlimited Sound Of Steel Orchestra, a new addition to the "EM Steel Pan Series." Trinidadian steel-pan player John A. Gibbs studied science at the University of the West Indies in Jamaica where he earned his undergraduate and graduate degrees and formed The Jamaica All Stars Steel Band. This was the start of a dual career in science and music that eventually took him to the United States. He moved to Philadelphia in the mid-70s and met Philly arranger/producer Louis A. deLise, with whom he collaborated to create a new steel pan music, welding Trinidadian steel music to Philly soul. He researched and advocated a new style of steel pan music, describing the steel pan as an "omnivibraphone" in his 1978 book The Unit Steel Band, in which he combined his scientific and musical backgrounds to illuminate the physics of the steel pan. Gibbs innate musicality comes to the fore on Steel Funk, where he compiles several years of experience with deLise into an appealing Trini-Philly groove union, with the five steel pan players of the Unlimited Sound Of Steel Orchestra working in sync with a 30-piece studio orchestra of brass, strings and rhythm. The songs range from Calypso to film theme to pop standard, covers and originals, but Steel Funk is not a chintzy pastiche, its a glorious unity. EM Records offers this re-release as "the 2014 version," newly remastered, with improved sound quality, a different track order, and new cover art drawn by Yoshihiro Tsuyama/2Yang.

Original copies of this 1977 release, in shrink. Number eight on Alan Lichts original "Minimal Top Ten." "CYCLES and UNTITLED are two compositions that represent some of Gibsons work combining elements of structure with elements of improvisation. CYCLES is an environmental, textural piece that is essentially improvised on a constantly shifting seven-note melodic progression in four-part harmony. It explores some of the sound capabilities of the pipe organ by using sustained tones in various groupings, clusters, and stop-settings. UNTITLED is essentially a long melody that repeats and expands upon itself within the framework of a given scale and pitch range. The written score simply indicates the note sequence to be observed. Other musical elements, such as phrasing, articulation, rhythm, tempo, dynamic range, and feeling, are determined spontaneously by the performer, within a general stylistic framework. UNTITLED has also been performed as a duet and a trio." - Chatham Square.

Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"Since the mid-1960s, Jon Gibson has played a key role in the development of American avant-garde music. No other artist has performed in the world premieres of Terry Rileys In C, Steve Reichs Drumming, and Philip Glasss Einstein on the Beach, three major works that changed the course of musical history. While his expertise on woodwind instruments made Gibson a go-to collaborator in Reichs, Glasss, and La Monte Youngs ensembles, less known are his remarkable contributions as a composer and visual artist. Visitations, Gibsons first release under his own name, originally appeared on the Chatham Square imprint in 1973. Inspired by the books of Carlos Castaneda, Gibson departs from the structured repetition of his minimalist peers and takes the listener on an aural journey -- spanning organic field recordings, ambient flutes and synthesizers, and free-flowing textures. Visitations two side-long tracks are at once solemn and unsettling, making this an astonishing debut that firmly establishes Gibson as a pioneer in his own right. This first-time vinyl reissue is recommended for fans of Cluster, Harold Budd, and Phill Niblock." - Superior Viaduct.

Title: Analog Apparitions
Format: Cass
Label: The Tapeworm
Country: UK
Price: $8.00
"Cassette-only release. Limited edition of 250 copies only. Recorded on a Marantz PMD222 with Maxell UR-90 cassettes, Brooklyn, NY, VI-xix-2010 to VII-xxiv-2010. Analog Apparitions, by Brooklyn-based composer Randy Gibson, is a pair of 30-minute compositions designed specifically to be recorded and released on cassette tape. A student of seminal minimalist composer La Monte Young, Gibson follows in the tradition of prime harmonic just intonation pioneered by Young in the 1960s. "Apparitions Of The Four Pillars," the underlying composition on this tape, explores the depth of the harmonic series through standard just intonation methods and the use of higher prime-harmonic relationships. In the 18 hours of recordings layered onto the two sides of the cassette, you can hear the mechanism of the tape itself, the evolution of improvisations over seven recording sessions, and the purity of sine waves in complex prime-harmonic relationships. Randy Gibson is a composer and performer, living and working in New York City. He works with structure, evolutionary compositional models, and improvisation to create enveloping and ritualistic works in just intonation. Gibson began his musical training at the age of six, studying percussion. In the summer of 1998, he travelled to Japan to study marimba with the great Keiko Abe. In early 2003, Gibson began composition studies in New York with La Monte Young. Continually humbling and revelatory, his studies with Young have brought greater clarity to his work, and reinforced his aesthetic convictions. Gibson combines live and electronic music, as well as aspects of the world music he has studied, most importantly raga singing in the Kirana tradition with La Monte Young and Marian Zazeela, but also Balinese and Japanese music. Gibsons work has been performed at festivals around the world including the Spark Festival of Electronic Music and Art in Minnesota, The Internationale Tanzmesse NRW in Düsseldorf, The Boulder and Minnesota International Fringe Festivals, HOT DAM: the opening festival of the Denver Art Museum, the Sans Souci International Festival of Dance Cinema, the ISIM 3rd annual conference, the Erick Hawkins Legacy Forum in New York, the 2010 Korea Experimental Arts Festival in Seoul, and the 44th Internationale Ferienkurse für Neue Musik, Darmstadt. Gibson is the artistic director of Avant Media, a non-profit organization dedicated to collaborative artistic endeavors. Cover features an illustration by Oscar Henriquez.

"The two sides of The First Pillar Appearing in Supernova could be considered opposing explorations of the simplest section of my ongoing work, Apparitions of the Four Pillars. When approached by Cassauna to make this cassette, I knew I wanted to use the mechanism of the cassette to create the work. As with my previous work for cassette, Analog Apparitions (TTW 024CS) on The Tapeworm, the sound of the cassette is integral. Cassettes of individual vocal drones were recorded onto a Marantz PMD222. Using the volume and speed capabilities of the Marantz, I worked with a single line at a time to create a dense harmonic world from a simple intervallic source." --Randy Gibson; Randy Gibson is a composer and performer based in Brooklyn. He works with structure, evolutionary compositional models, and improvisation to create enveloping and ritualistic works in just intonation. By presenting his work with visual and ritualistic elements (incense, video, lighting), Gibson encourages the audience to embrace stillness and become absorbed in the sonic experience. Since 2003, Gibson has studied with seminal minimalist pioneer La Monte Young, which has brought great clarity and devotion to his work. Since 2005 he has studied raga singing in the Kirana tradition with La Monte Young and Marian Zazeela. Gibsons music has been presented around the world, including at festivals in Germany, Korea, and Mexico. His works have been commissioned by choreographers (2004-2005s Separate Haven commissioned by Kim Olson/Sweetedge), record labels (2010s Analog Apparitions commissioned by The Tapeworm), ensembles (2010-2012s Circular Trance... commissioned by Ekmeles Vocal Ensemble), and individual performers (2013s Nine Minutes for the Four Pillars in duet with The Paris Drones, recalling The Midwinter Starfield commissioned by Erik Carlson of ICE). In 2010, under a grant from the American Music Center, Gibson traveled to London to premiere The Third Analog Pillar. The performance was hailed by The Liminal as "a moment of pleasingly soporific and mind-emptying purity." His just intonation piano recording, Aqua Madora, was selected by Textura as one of the top 10 albums of 2011. Gibson is the artistic director of Avant Media, a non-profit organization dedicated to collaborative artistic endeavors, and, since 2010, he has curated the annual Avant Music Festival of composer-driven performances." -Cassauna.

"On "First Steps in a ruined world", he pushes this bleakness of vision further than ever into the noise territories he used to stalk in his pre-modular synth work... Theres physicality and momentum elsewhere, but by stripping back his music to its barest essentials, Giffoni has found a way to merge rhythm and texture, in the process creating a music whose sense of space and depth belies its economy of means. Over a concise four tracks, Giffoni projects a vision that revels in the idea of the synthesizer as a grimy, mud-encrusted machine whose function is to soundtrack a dystopian present rather than reference an idealised golden age or imagine a shiny ergonomic future." –Keith Monliné, The Wire.

Side B is a studio piece recorded live on a much larger modular synth, based around the same theme, but with structural and tonal variations not in the original composition. This is pure psychedelic electronic music. Cover illustration by Megan Ellis. Screenprinted at Monoroid." -Important

Whitmans track is a beautiful exploration of synthetic tonality and space, like a sudden massage to several areas of the brain one by one but also all at once with a little spice of musique concrete .

Title: Ordier

Label: Table Of The Elements
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Though the era of punk was widely regarded as a time of extremes, legendary group Wire and guitarist BC Gilbert provided the most problematic, visionary and ironic response to the music scene of the mid-70s. The angular minimalism of their sound, the abstract, deadpan lyrics and a penchant for confrontation betrayed the art school origins and made Wire an idiosyncratic triumph. With bravery, integrity, absolute courage and energy -- and more ideas and concepts than any other musician of his era -- Gilbert continues to forge ahead. In his post-Wire work, he has utilized a variety of modernist tools and explored a vast range of experimental music, from electronic noise to ambient drones. Table of the Elements is now pleased to present the contemporaneous CD, Ordier . Recorded for the label in 1996 but subsequently believed lost, Ordier lets loose a wild swarm of electronics. As Gilbert writes: Im taking a very, very minimalist approach and really getting inside some of the sounds and chasing them to destruction. Its done mostly with effects, guitar pedals pushed to the absolute limit. Beautifully packaged in a custom-designed wood case, and featuring photographs by prominent photographer Bettina Herzner." - Table Of The Elements.

Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"In 1980, after three relentlessly creative albums, the members of Wire were at an impasse, unsure of how to push themselves any further as a four-piece rock band. While frontman Colin Newman spent the bands hiatus mining Wires knack for intelligent and contorted pop songs, guitarist Bruce Gilbert and bassist/vocalist Graham Lewis joined forces for a series of experimental projects (Dome, Cupol, etc.) where the primary motivating concept was studio as instrument. 3R4, the duos only LP under the B.C. Gilbert/G. Lewis moniker and the very second album to be released on 4AD, eschews melody and structure in favor of ambient-noise soundscapes, metallic textures, and tense moods. If the brief Barge Calm tracks appear like sonic exercises, the longer pieces (3. 4? and R) are true exorcisms, conjuring supernatural found-sounds with the patience and deliberation of (un)holy men. Play this record loud and try not to think that it is the soundtrack to a lost David Lynch film.

Title: Cave Trilogy - A Barricade, A Tigress, A Shadow
Format: Triple LP
Label: Feeding Tube
Country: USA
Price: $34.00
"A few years back, Bryan Gillig was the frontman of the great Turners Falls MA band, Loudville. Plans were broached for a record, but nothing ever worked out and Loudville quietly devolved into pumice. A while later, Feeding Tubes Mr. Lee became enamored of a cassette of songs Bryan recorded in his car. Before anything could be done with that, however, Bryan reported back that he had recorded most of his repertoire under a bridge, by the banks of the Connecticut River in Turners. It was a lot of stuff, but it was fucking cool, so here ya go. Bryans songs are nearly open-form in spots, and sometimes push against the bounds of known völk traditions. In other places, his approach recalls bits by the early 70s New England troubadour, Jaime Brockett. There are even points where his attack is reminiscent of Roky Erickson, circa The Holiday Inn Tapes. For an approach as minimal as Gilligs, he manages a surprising amount of variety on Cave Trilogy. The vibe is akin to being invited to enter a van full of smoke, only to discover that a river runs through it. Quite amazing in a low-key kind of way. The three albums ebb and flow with a rhythm as natural as the watery backdrop for the recording session. Some of the tunes are as tight as John Sebastians hat, others ramble like Vince Martin wasted on reds. Together, they form a full afternoon of toasted deliciousness. Its almost like stumbling across the long-lost solo recordings of an ex-member of Spirit in the Flesh(Turners legendary commune band of ages past). If you dont dig this one, youre definitely clenching too tight." - Byron Coley, 2015. Limited edition of 200 copies.

Price: $20.00
"Medical Records is proud to present the quintessential first album by Gina X Performance. Gina X Performance was composed of the charismatic Gina Kikoine (vocals/lyrics) along with famous German producer/musician Zeus B. Held and backing band. Released in 1978 on various labels including EMI, Nice Mover has been out of print on vinyl format since 1980. Zeus B. Held has previously worked with the band Birth Control and has recorded multiple solo albums as well. Nice Mover has been an internationally regarded electro/disco record with various tracks appearing on compilations throughout the years (e.g. Andrew Weatheralls Nine OClock Drop). The track No G.D.M. (a tribute to famous gay actor/writer/personality) was a club hit on both sides of the Atlantic and remains a commonly heard track on better DJ sets to this very day. It is made up of an infectious slow driving disco-esque beat with perfectly aligned and arranged synth accompaniments. Ginas unmistakable and truly unique vocals and lyrics set this record apart from its contemporaries. Tackling controversial subject matter such as transgenderism, exhibitionism, and other fetishes, this record has left a deep mark on the history of new wave and electro/disco. The title track Nice Mover is a cosmic sequenced synth hit and also has appeared on various compilations. The bouncing Be a Boy is a high energy dancefloor cutter that illustrates the internal thought processes and daydreams of a female longing to become a male. Black Sheep continues this theme and is a very catchy number with bonus sheep sounds to keep it interesting. The closing track Tropical Comic Strip starts off with peaceful cricket samples and piano and builds into a bombastic production that is a fitting close to the record. Master recordings provided by Zeus B. Held and remastered by Lafayette Masters, Freiburg. Officially licensed from Mr. Held (KGBeat Productions) directly. This is a seminal work of electro/disco/wave and is essential for fans of late 70s wave-synth-disco crossover and the like. Original reproduction artwork is preserved on the front (one of the best record covers of the entire scene) and back. Presented on high quality 180 gram bone colored vinyl in a limited edition pressing of 1000 hand-numbered copies. Includes bonus insert with liner notes and interview by Kurt B. Reighley." -Medical.

"New single from the GIRLS AT DAWN features two new tunes, "Back To You" and "WCK" on the flip.  "Back to You" is a skittish angle on their usual "fragile girl group" sounds. It still has the carefree, roaming verse and delivers those girl group harmonies, but eventually heads into a fractured, upbeat chorus with a guitar line that weirdly, lightly stabs home the repeated "gotta get back to you". The flip, "WCK" is a totally carefree example of the harmonic melodies but played shambolic as hell and soaked in buzzsaw-bass from top to bottom. TGAD separates themselves from so many other "oh lets do a girl band" bands in that they are at once playing the roles of "super delicate" and "carefree & dark" (even a bit twisted in moments).

"GIRLS NAMES formed in Belfast in January 2009 with their first gig booked before the duo had even played together. In their short existence, theyve quickly streamlined their sound, forging a self-styled "disposable noise pop" reminiscent of the 80s shadow world of Black Tambourine and Felt. Theyve been prolific, too, honing their sound over the course of several releases, including an EP on Captured Tracks and a mini-album on Tough Love. "I Lose" represents the next step in their evolution. Marking the first time Girls Names has recorded as a three-piece, the track is driven by an insistent cyclical riff, punctuated by CATHAL CULLYs deceptively assured croon. San Franciscos BRILLIANT COLORS have staked-out a unique spot in the indie music landscape, inspired in equal parts by post-punk DIY fervor and the spiky pop of C86 and early Flying Nun / Creation label output. Their 2009 album Introducing combined guitar buzz with dreamy melodies and rushing rhythms, forming a startling blend of The Dils and Shop Assistants. Driven by an absurdly catchy vocal melody and the bands now trademark distorted guitars, "You Win" (recorded by TY SEGALL) is another anthem in Brilliant Colors ever-growing catalog, offering a superb taster for their new album, due Spring 2011." -Slumberland

"Pretty much everybody youd ever trust in such matters has, at one time or another, stated clearly that The Girls were the best band Boston ever produced. Their 1979 “Jeffrey I Hear You” single on Pere Ubus Hearthan label is one of the high points of American art-punk by any standards you can imagine. Everyone who ever saw them play live was floored by the sheer craziness of their approach. And their songs were strange, great, and uniquely their own. Mark Dagley, Daved Hild, Robin Amos, and George Condo came together in dribs and drabs over the course of two years. Slowly growing in number as their material became more complex and zoned, they were a quartet by the time they packed it in at the end of the 70s. But this album presents swabs of their earliest work. Some of it is just Mark and Daved. Then Robin joins. Then George. And you can hear and feel their palette expand and mutate. Some of the songs here are protean versions of subsequent classics. Others are the first evidence of experiments that came and went before they could even be played at gigs. And its all goddamn incredible. Just as Pere Ubu -- a band that was The Girls most important booster -- created entirely new sounds and approaches to their material in order to get the stuff across, so The Girls blasted through Bostons late-70s underground with a fully weaponized art-punk approach that destroyed minds with regularity. Massive stuff. Enjoy" - Byron Coley, 2015. Limited edition of 800.

Barely faithful cover versions (XTC, Gods Gift, Hank Williams, The Osmonds, Edgar Winter, The Birthday Party, New Creation), with varying degrees of overhaul, mangling and looseness of interpretation, emerge like seared remnants of a torched London happening from 1966.   Guest speakers include Lucian Tielens (Brent Lewiis Ensemble), Bruce Russell (The Dead C.), Patricia Rowland (Vomit Launch), Jett Hotcomb (The Talented Hairdos) Thurston Graham (Resistance Works), Scott Simmons (Eat Skull), Dave Gulbis (Celine Dion) Andrew Murphy (Celine Dion, Forked, Smooch), Titch Turner (The Vaticans), Emiko Saito (Obsessive-Compulsive Cat), Cristian Ceia (Romania), Matt Mumper (Beor The Friendly Thing, The Helper), Toni Smith (HappyLucky Design), and Rainbow Cartwheel (This Is Yvonne Lovejoy).  Guest musicians include Flavor Station (Ukuzuna) on ukuleles and vocals, Alastair Galbraith (A Handful of Dust) on violin, Doug Pearson (International Hello) on electronics, Black Rose (This Is Yvonne Lovejoy) on keyboards, and Earl Kuck (Tedium House) on small motors.  Texts by Elizabeth Clare Prophet, Dan Ashwander, Wayne Bent, John F.

Title: Tubular Bells
Format: LP
Label: Starlight Furniture Company
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"The album that launched Richard Bransons Virgin Records and is virtually synonymous with The Exorcist, Mike Oldfields Tubular Bells has been revisited by the composer himself over the years in hopes of rectifying problems that still trouble him to this day -- elastic timing, dodgy playing, poor edits, changes in tone, background tape noise. Needless to say, such defects are tools of the trade for countless modern recording artists, especially at the bottom of the food chain. In this no-instruments interpretation of Oldfields epic instrumental performed by Glands of External Secretion (side one) and Decaer Pinga (side two), deficiency is the cornerstone. By intentionally limiting themselves to prerecorded tapes, field recordings, electronic devices and effects, out-of-context musical passages, and anything else that did not require a musical instrument to be played -- both bands interpret their respective halves of this legendary opus with methods that seem to run counter to the spirit of the original, yet paradoxically force it to shine through" - Starlight Furniture Company.

Title: How Now/Strung Out
Format: LP
Label: Orange Mountain
Country: USA
Price: $27.00
"This new vinyl release from Orange Mountain Music presents Philip Glass first concert ever in what the composer considers his debut. The concert took place on May 19, 1968 at the Film Makers Cinematheque at 80 Wooster Street in Soho, New York City. The performance was the first all-Glass concert ever and featured solo works and duets with visual elements. This recording captures two of the solo works on the program including Glass himself performing How Now for solo organ and Strung Out for solo amplified violin performed by the legendary Dorothy Pixley-Rothchild for whom Glass had previously written a violin concerto for in 1960. It was soon after this concert that Glass started his own ensemble for which he wrote many new works. Consequently many of the works from this pre-Philip Glass Ensemble period were not performed for a long time. Strung Out has the sheet music strung out in an L shape and the performer walks along the music as he/she goes farther into the piece. This is the oldest recording of any kind of Philip Glass early music." - Orange Mountain.

"GLAXO BABIES are the greatest UK post-punk band youve never heard. Formed in Bristol in late 1977 and named after the British pharmaceutical giant who allegedly inoculated thousands with a toxic vaccine, the original lineup included ROB CHAPMAN (vocals), DAN CATSIS (guitar), TOM NICHOLS (bass) and GEOFF ALSOPP (drums). The bands pioneering mix of metallic guitar, dubbed-out rhythms and shamanistic chants found its way into the bloodlines of generations on both sides of the pond. Naturally, Glaxo members later joined THE POP GROUP and MAXIMUM JOY. Originally released on Heartbeat Records in 1980, Put Me on the Guest List collects the bands propulsive demos, mostly performed live in the studio with no overdubs and not originally intended for release. "This Is Your Life" is a veritable classic, with Chapmans angst-ridden lyrics soaring low as the band rides tense, sinuous grooves. The skittish "Police State" stands toe-to-toe with the art-punk flag-bearers in the North (Gang of Four, Mekons) and in London (Wire, The Homosexuals). "Stay Awake" is a vitriolic screed as powerful as anything from the newly formed Public Image Limited. By the time Englands post-punk scene was in full bloom, dominating the pop charts in the UK and college radio in the US, Glaxo Babies had unfortunately dissolved." - Superior Viaduct.

Title: The World Without Us
Format: LP
Label: Gizeh
Country: UK
Price: $25.00
"LP version. Limited, hand-numbered edition of 300 copies. Glissando return with a second record for Gizeh Records. This material bares Glissandos trademark of ethereal voices and tip-toeing piano melodies, but the overall sound is richer and more expansive. Epic swells of strings and guitars soar above the drones and field recordings to create an intense yet fragile noise. The dynamics of the new record are also apparent and through the use of an array of guests there is a new depth and ambition to Glissando that portrays the songs in their truest form. The World Without Us moves slowly between dark shadows and into more hopeful territory throughout -- its not afraid to be silent when the moment arrives but its also capable of enormous, echoing, choral and string crescendos in one subtle movement. Since Glissandos debut in 2008, Elly May Irving and Richard Knox have experimented with countless different live set-ups and members ranging from simple, more immediate shows as a duo through to a seven-piece group. Never tied to a specific ideal of how to play the material, it enabled the group to tour heavily for a couple of years in the UK and Europe while recording a follow-up album, but inevitably this process took it toll. In May 2012 Irving and Knox finally completed the record they had been tentatively working on for four years and the final stages came together relatively quickly. Knox produced and pre-mixed the record in his own Cloud Blunt Moon studio in Leeds before heading to Paris to complete the final mixing session with Frederic D. Oberland at his Magnum Diva studio. The material on The World Without Us stretches back the full four years with the likes of "The Long Lost" and "Of Silence," which were previously featured on a highly limited edition, double-A-side single. The title-track is also an older song which has been morphed and reworked over the years. The duo knew these songs were too strong to leave off the record and pushed to find ways of hitting the same standard with the newer tracks like "Companion" which is almost Scott Walker-esque in the vocal delivery, marking a dynamic change in the way Irving is using her voice. Mastered by Nils Frahm. Guest musicians: Angela Chan (The Rustle Of The Stars/A-Sun Amissa), Frederic D. Oberland (FareWell Poetry/The Rustle of the Stars), Aaron Martin, Paul Elam (Fieldhead), Lidwine, Tim Hay and Alastair Hay (Tomorrow We Sail)." - Gizeh.

Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Glitter Wizards debut LP follows up their "Black Lotus" single with more cosmic heaviness, taking all the aspects of their music even further out. While it lives up to the Hawkwind-meets-Sabbath comparison frequently applied to the band, Solar Hits also showcases Glitter Wizards diversity with brutally-direct metal riffage, spaced-out feedback and electronics, straight-ahead garage punk, free-styling improv mayhem, and even progressive sax/flute/violin interplay (with a guest performance by Steve MacKay) while remaining one cohesive rock record. Although its not possible for an audio recording to show the bands over-the-top glam stage look (Youtube "Snow Crash" for a dose of that), the album unquestionably gives a feel for the irresistible fun of the Glitter Wizard live experience, while adding layers of psychedelic goodness that can only come from time and effort in the studio. And at its core, beyond stylistic considerations, the album demonstrates solid, compelling songwriting from singer Wendy Stonehenge and his band (including underground veteran Doug "Graves", whos worked with Nothing People, Liquorball, Monoshock, etc.). Insert, download card, limited to 450 copies and totally great!" - Archers Guild.

"One of the true lost gems of West Coast gothic postpunk, this 1985 release was the first for the band led by Sri Lankan expat singer-songwriter Eric Cope. Taking the darker moments of JOY DIVISION as a starting point but leaving behind the industrial angst and fury for a rich and soulful melancholy that seamlessly blends first and third world cultures, they built something else entirely with insistent tribal rhythms, atmospheric guitar work, and Erics ghostly and desolate vocals, all with fine recording and production." -Insight.

"One of the best shows I went to in San Francisco during 1984 was the Glorious Din & Trial gig. This show really changed my life & made realize that I had to follow my dreams. Both of these bands were local bands, but they had created this killer post-punk sound that could hold its own with any band from anywhere. Around this time, Glorious Din released their classic album Leading Stolen Horses. This album is a post-punk gem that many people have never heard – trust me, after one listen you will be hooked. Every song on Leading Stolen Horses will touch your spirit in some way. I cant front, their singer Eric Cope could be compared to Ian Curtis, but honestly to me he had his own twisted vocal delivery. Glorious Din songs had these rad tribal drums that cascaded around your skull & then waltzed with your brain cells. Whats strange is that when I was younger, I believed this album gave me intelligence – with each listen, I learned more about my being.The guitar licks on this album are catchy & eternal, which puts you in a transcendental state. Their song Cello Tape shows that band was on a plane of their own. Search out this rad band Glorious Din & allow them to paint your world grey" - Sean Reveron, Cvltnation.com.

Spectra is an unsettling mind-meld: Spiers desolate soundscapes bleed into Miltons heavy drones, which are complemented perfectly by ORorkes restless percussion. Group improvisation is the natural language of these three; even listing their solo and collaborative albums over the past decade would take way more effort than I can muster.

Price: $15.00
"The next installment in the Medical Records journey takes us to West Berlin. In 1979, armed with a Korg MS-10 synthesier and a very simple rhythm box, Christof Glowalla began experimenting with a tape recorder and a few DIY sound generators. Influenced by outfits such as Throbbing Gristle, Cabaret Voltaire, and Fad Gadget, Glowalla eventually put his creation to tape at the West Berlin Musiclab, which was a small 8-track studio in the Kreuzberg district. What resulted in 1980 was the self-released now excruciatingly rare Erde 80 7-inch single. Glowalla also collaborated in a band called Exobit in 1981 with Ingolf Kurkowski and Frank Landgraf, but it was a brief existence. Also in 1981, Glowalla recorded three more tracks with Kurkowski which were presented to various record labels, but they unfortunately were never released at the time. Though relatively obscure in the early 1980s, the Erde 80 7-inch release slowly became an underground hit with collectors with subsequently rising prices that continue to rise today. Medical Records is proud to compile for the first time the two tracks from Erde 80 plus the three tracks recorded in 1981. The tracks are culled from the carefully digitized now lost master tapes. For lovers of cold, synth-heavy pop with a darker feel. Presented as Medical Records first 10-inch release, this collection is released on high-quality 10-inch opaque mustard colored vinyl in a limited edition of 600 hand-numbered copies." - Medical.

Title: Infinity Machines
Format: Triple LP
Label: Rocket Recordings
Country: UK
Price: $35.00
"Salford, England-based Gnods Infinity Machines explores a unique vision informed by experimental élan and metaphysical intensity. In an era in which the word "psychedelic" too often tends to signify a reductive and retrograde rag-bag of second-hand shapes, it was in Gnods nature to venture forth in search of new and expanded sonic terrain. At first, this led them to pursue a purely electronic sound in the live arena, yet as they knuckled down to chronicle this expansion and experimentation for posterity, it became clear that a mixture of live instrumentation and binary audial research would be the path that would prove most fruitful. Thus began the process that would ultimately produce these recordings, and a far-reaching mission that would result in uncanny crepuscular atmosphere locking horns with sinister electronic intensity. Infinity Machines traverses between and beyond a variety of different headspaces, from the bleak to the beatific; yet, while touching on nocturnal jazz, soothing yet unsettling ambience, menacing aggro-industrial battery, and opiated bliss-out alike, its shot through with an undercurrent of fiery countercultural zeal and small-hours revelation, as if the hive-mind of their home collective had manifested itself on disc. Tracks were put together from an initial blank canvas, and as the band themselves emphasize, "We got pretty tactical in the approach. We have certainly noticed that the emphasis has shifted from full on throw everything at it Gnod vibes to a more stripped spacious sound which was not fully intentional but more of a natural progression." - Infinity Machines.

"Brothers and sisters, to prepare ourselves to celebrate the sacred mysteries of Gnod, let us call to mind our sins. We believe in one Gnod, Gnod Almighty, makers of heavy black slab on Earth. We believe in one Chord, seamless, sublime, the one and only sound of Gnod, eternally begotten of the marcher. Gnod from Gnod, light from light, true Gnod from true Gnod, begotten, not made, of one Being with the maker; through Them all riffs were played. For us and for our salvation They came down from Manchester; by the power of Tonys (un)limit, They came to reincarnate and made the last discod beat. Tonys First Communion, if you choose to be blessed by this record, is the first reception of the Sacrament on vinyl; this long-standing favorite has been celebrated over centuries of incarnations and Rocket are proud to release its rite of passage. The ceremony of this Communion lasts 20 minutes and 2 seconds. On the second side, Gnod rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; They ascended into noise upon this Earth and were seated at the right hand of the Vatican. This 13-minute holy doctrine sees Gnod take away the sins of the world; it cleanses the incense (the in-sense-out-sense) from the all-seeing (third) eye, like a Faustian Butthole Surfers sharing bread with Shit & Shine and John Carpenter turning water into wine. Some ceremonies owe their institution to purely physical reason; for Gnod, its the mystical reason that They represent. INGNODWETRUST is founded on honor and soul, They for one are finally washing their hands with downcast eyes." - Rocket Recordings.

“Just as dramatically as their restless disposition morphed their sound to a binary-driven direction for their last work, now Gnod strip their electronic setup to a viscous attack, as redolent of the primal punishment of early Swans, as the angularity of prime Public Image Ltd, yet shot through with a mercurial power and fiery intensity that could come from no-one else. The opening title-cut of Mirror seethes with lithe energy and dubbed-out vitality, whilst elsewhere the eighteen-minute closing track "Sodom & Gomorrah" may be the most dystopian piece of music the band have yet created; a harrowing yet fiercely compelling colossus of bleak abjection. "The tracks were pretty much written on the road in May 2015" elaborates Gnods Paddy Shine. Reflecting and refracting the uncertainty of a darkening era, Mirror is a work of bold reinvention and raw renewal, sculpting chaos and discord into a formidable statement of intent. Only one thing is certain - wherever Gnod choose to go next, their ire and inspiration blaze as brightly as ever.” - Rocket.

Country: Belgium
Price: $25.00
"An early and one of the most special Gnod recordings is out now on Aguirre. The Somnambulists Tale consists of two side-long adventurous pieces which are carried by an incredible loop. The haunting ambience in combination with electronics, distant guitar layers, conversations between the band members, a typewriter, and other sounds from found objects makes this quite an atypical Gnod release, but definitely a great one. Influenced by early Krautrock bands like Can, Hawkwind, and Ash Ra Tempel, Gnod brings us back to those days, adding twisted sounds and strange lyrics to the whole, delivering a truly mesmerizing psychedelic drone record. Gnod is a British Krautrock band from Salford, England. Formed in 2006, the band is a collective with an ever-rotating list of members. They run experimental electronic live nights in Salford called Gesamtkunstwerk (German for "whole arts work") where they offer "outsider electronics, hardwarped machine rhythms and analog debauchery, all reflecting the post-industrial mill space." They have a punky belief in the dissolution of the boundary between artist and audience to the extent that it is not unlikely to find gig-goers onstage, adding to the instrumental melée.

"Rocket Recordings are pleased to announce the reissue of the now highly sought-after 2010 double LP Gnod Droput With White Hills II. This reissue comes packaged in different artwork from the original release. Gnod Drop Out With White Hills II is the first official collaboration between two of the most colossal cosmic manglers on the planet, that of astral rejecters Gnod (Manchester, UK) and space-rock juggernauts White Hills (New York). Hot on the heels of their Not Not Fun sold out release, as well as countless self-unleashed CD-Rs and various indie label alliances, Gnod have been stirring their galactic soup of flashbacked rituals with unpredictable, incendiary results, both on record and as a live experience. Having them join forces with White Hills for this record is akin to having the aural equivalent of those 3D magic eye stereograms -- looked at in one way, they just dont make sense, but seen through the repetition of the music, the result is out of this world. Since White Hills last outing with Rocket Recordings on the Collisions split with The Heads in 2009, the band have successfully released their debut album for Thrill Jockey and now have notched up an impressive back catalog of releases. Their fiery brand of heavy space-rock has seen them burning up live appearances over the years as they continue on the path towards uncharted territories. To celebrate this thundering union, Rocket Recordings have embarked upon the release of a double vinyl LP expanding into four phases of pulsating mantras, awash with all the hypno-propulsion both bands motor skills can pilot. Its brimming with surrendered NEU!-like patterns, like both bands driving through Dingerland with "L.A. Woman" blasting from the rushing air. We have 16-minute elegant Bel Air suites, whose ebbing and flowing mesmerizing grooves burst with swooping grandiose synths, like gentle waves hanging in time. Interjections of oscillating guitars and keyboards, designed to propel the captured listener into a trance-inducing sun roof of kosmische blur, rupture out through the expansive blue. The 8 tracks are embedded with four long 10-minute+ pieces and these anchor the whole experience firmly into an exciting haze of echoing psychedelia, electronic and experimental Krautrock trippo-nova. After which, all four corners of your minds eye have been consecrated in a world of undulating symphonies." -Rocket.

On the flip side, A Middle Sex takes up duties of doing something equally psychedelic, but in a completely different style. Their side is titled Polytheism, and is essentially made up of two tracks, the opener is a short, wild spaced-out cosmic synth piece, which is swiftly followed by their main 10 minute piece of layered drums and percussion, swirling electronics, distorted chanted vocals.

Directed in 1979 by Joe DAmato, it still impresses with the rawness and morbidity of its scenes, the trademark of a director who, much more than others, befits the term extreme. The soundtrack of the film, whose main ingredients are keyboards and synthesizers, swings among echoes of Alan Parsons Project, funk/fusion and melancholic atmospheres. It was never officially published when the film came out, and was finally released on CD by Cinevox Record in 1997 (CDMDF 304) and again in 2008 (CD MDF 631) with two completely different tracklists. Goblin here appear in an atypical shape, with Massimo Morante (guitar) and Claudio Simonetti (keyboards) replaced by Carlo Pennisi and Maurizio Guarini respectively, completing the line-up along with Fabio Pignatelli (bass) and Augustin Marangolo (drums). Buio Omega is pressed on vinyl today for the first time ever, a release awaited for years by Goblin fans. The LP is housed in a beautiful gatefold cover showing inside recording sessions photos and promotional flyers/postcards. The tracklist is that of the first 1997 CD edition." - AMS.

"Coinciding with Profondo Rossos 40th anniversary, Claudio Simonettis Goblin celebrates this anniversary with a new version 2015 of the famous soundtrack. The incredible existential and atmospheric experience of Dario Argentos films comes from the merging of gorgeously crafted visuals with a soul tingling auditory experience. Once heard, Goblins scores are never quite forgotten. Profondo Rosso is no exception, characterized by its synth heavy sound and chilling central theme. Along with Suspiria, Profondo Rosso is perhaps Argentos most celebrated film and a classic of the giallo horror subgenre in its own right. A surreal masterpiece from Dario Argento with a pounding score from cult prog rockers Goblin,Profondo Rosso ( Deep Red ) will leave you battered and breathless!" - Rustblade.

"God Willing and Privy Seals are two of the prime purveyors of meditative harsh tones. God Willings guitar and oscillatior drone has been reaching epic levels of hypnosis lately and this piece is a great example. The repetitive nature of textured signals act like the swaying charm of the pocket watch: onward march. Matthew Sullivan has been crafting his Earn project recently, and this, one of the final Privy Seals recordings acts as a logical bridge. Heavy, hi-end guitar and tape interlacing: a harsh movement, but possessing transcendently soothing qualities buried under the deprivation of distorted tones.

"From 1979 to 1984 other bands on the Manchester scene played larger roles, but sooner or later almost everyone who was there mentions Gods Gift -- in tones of awe or amazement. Heres where the rest of the world finds out what all the racket was about. The early Manchester scene was anchored by The Fall, Joy Division, a few straightahead punks, and the more idiosyncratic denizens of the Manchester Musicians Collective. And Gods Gift out-did them all -- in diffidence, darkness, pure feral energy and gleeful musical anarchy. Their successes were epic, but their failures, too, left indelible impressions. Guitarist Steve Murphy: If things were going wrong, wed make them go more wrong... Singer Steven Edwards once shouted out to a baffled London crowd, Wotcha dancing for? -- its tuneless, you pillock! This was no pose. As much as can be said of any band in rock history, Gods Gift were the product of their day jobs: Murphy, Edwards, and at least five others who played in GG all worked inside at Prestwich Asylum -- then the largest psychiatric hospital in the U.K. The hospitals grayness, hopelessness, and constant menace permeated not just GGs tunes and lyrics, but their very stage-presence -- Edwards in work-clothes, and Murphy playing (always!) with his back turned to some of the U.K.s least cuddly audiences. GG recorded a fight onstage and used it in place of lyrics for their self-released first 45, People. Gods Gift found a champion in New Hormones owner, Richard Boon, who booked the band and put out the 12" Gods Gift EP and their landmark Discipline single, but unfortunately, as New Hormones finances crumbled, Boons favorite track, Clamour Club, remained unreleased. Messthetics 17-song CD, Pathology, spans GGs career from 1979 to 1984, drawing material from their records, a Manchester Musicians Collective compilation, several demos and two full-length cassette albums. 12-page booklet with photos and extensive bio; 75 minutes of pounding, insistent, magnificent noise." -Messthetics

"2014 release. Lucien Goethals was born in 1931 in Ghent, Belgium. He completed his musical education at the Royal Academy of Music in 1956 where he was awarded the highest accolades for advanced organ, history of music, and theoretic notions, after which he eventually pursued his studies of seriated music technique and electronic composition with G.M. Koenig. He was awarded further awards for composition in both his own country as well as abroad, and was a member of the renowned Spectra work group. In 1963 he was appointed to the post of producer of the BRT (Flemish division of the Belgian Broadcasting and Television System) and later a key producer in the division known as IPEM (Institute for psycho-acoustics and electronic music). From 1971 he taught musical analysis at the Music Academy of Ghent. Goethals was an exponent of the stricter direction in the aesthetics of contemporary music. His work is still recognized as a valuable contribution, on a global scale, to the fields of seriated and trans-aleatoric music of the past half century. His recorded achievements within experimental music include a dozen rare compositions for solo "magnetophonic" music and a set of works for combined orthodox instruments with magnétaphone. Outside of the electronic field, Goethals was also recognized for his chamber music, symphonic orchestration, cantata, and lied compositions. This compendium focuses on Luciens magnetophonic work. Features a translation of the original track notes that accompanied the original limited Belgian pressing.” - Cacophonic.

“Karel Goeyvaerts was born in Antwerp in 1923. After receiving a humanistic education in Antwerp, he took courses at the Lemmensinstituut in Mechelen, Belgium. From 1943 until 1947 he studied at the Royal Flemish Conservatoire of Antwerp. From 1947 until 1950 he studied composition with Darius Milhaud and music analysis with Olivier Messiaen and was a pupil ofMaurice Martenot at the Conservatoire de Paris. In 1949 he was awarded the 2nd Prize for Composition and the Lili Boulanger Prize at the same college. He won the Halphen Prize in 1950. During the winter of 1950-51, he wrote the "Sonata for two pianos." Because of its decisive and total stylistic novelty he designated this work "Opus 1," thus rejecting all of his former work. With this sonata he created a structural synthesis of the dodecaphonic system ofAnton Webern and the teachings of Messiaen and laid the foundations for generalized "punctual" serialism. He demonstrated the application of this technique on the electronic medium in his compositions Nos. 4, 5, and 7. During the period from 1951-1956, he influenced -- directly, through personal contact and intensive correspondence -- the musical creativity of Karlheinz Stockhausen, whom he met during the summer courses of 1951 in Darmstadt. In 1953, Goeyvaerts and Stockhausen produced the first electronic music in the studio of the NWDR (Nordwestdeutscher Rundfunk) in Cologne. In 1970 the BRT (Belgian Radio and Television) appointed him as producer at the IPEM (Institute of Psychoacoustics and Electronic Music) in Ghent. In 1974 he took charge of the new music productions for BRT-3 in Brussels. Goeyvaerts received several awards, including the Koopal Prize in 1967 and the Visser-Neerlandia Prize in 1969. He also was given commissions by the BRT, the Festival of Flanders, and the NOS (Nederlandse Omroep Stichting). His works have been performed in several European countries, as well as Canada, the United States, and Japan, and at festivals of the ISCM (International Society for Contemporary Music), including Brussels 1950, Oslo 1953, Graz 1972, and Bonn 1977. This CD is the first collection of some of Goeyvaertss ultra-rare vinyl releases, available here for the first time outside of their original vinyl editions.” - Cacophonic.

Country: Italy
Price: $29.00
"For this new gollaboration the French combo GOL confronts the British drums legend Charles Hayward for a rough/delicate and intense/mellow paradoxical music delight. The studio side compiles four improvised sessions exploring some possible oblique acceptations of the word rock, while the live side recorded at 104, Paris, in Dec 2008 during the Sonic protest festival, takes the encounters into the realm of psychedelia. The apparently chaotic home-made electronics of GOL find a perfect counterpoint in Haywards This Heat-ish incomparable kickass-snare-cymbals style machinery of straightforward beats meet subtle and continuously reinvented variations. A touch of pop, gamelans from afar, an unexpected song underlined by a frenetic electric organ, make this LP a surprising journey into sonic explorations. GOL was formed in 1988 in Paris by Jean-Marcel Busson, Frédéric Rebotier, Ravi Sharda and Samon Takahashi. On this record GOL play modified synths, modified organ, bass guitar, home-made electronics, SH101 and crackle box. This LP is the third in the gollaboration series after records by GOL with Dumitrescu/Avram and with Charlemagne Palestine. The very minimal sleeve features a four color reversible double front side with sinister photo portraits of Charles Hayward and the GOL members.

Price: $28.00
"Entering their 20th year of existence, the GOL orchestra, together with the label Planam, celebrates and starts a new program of collaborations: the Gollaboration series. Musique Directe shows the band facing the leaders of Rumanian spectralism, Ana-Maria Avram and Iancu Dumitrescu. Electric and intense spontaneous experiments, on the edge of electroacoustic music and primitive avant-garde. Live recordings in Marseille and Paris with the participation of Ansamblul Hyperion members Petru and Matei Teodorescu on one track. GOL was formed in 1988 in Paris by Jean-Marcel Busson, Frédéric Rebotier, Ravi Sharda and Samon Takahashi. The quartet embodies, within a post-Dada spirit, a lost rural tradition. GOL plays flute, horns, guitar, violin, toys, self-manufactured instruments, tapes, turntables, voices, various percussion instruments and electronics, an appropriateness of both traditional string instrument and handmade low fi equipment. GOLs first LP, issued in 1993, compiles their first items (88-92) based on vinyl-record scratching, tape cut-ups and acoustic instruments. The issuing of this LP was followed by a 9-year hibernation. Since 2002, the band is back together to pursue its common research and play together with instinct and invention. Their music, electroacoustic-oriented, is partially improvised and partly tense. At the time of a collaboration with Rumanian composer Iancu Dumitrescu, GOL developed a score system renowned as layers leaf . Through this system, they could elaborate a hybrid music between orchestral conduct and free interpretation of movements. Edition limited to 300 copies, also including the improvisation sketch for Musique Directe V (not on the record)." -Planam

“The sixth Gollaberration features a rather odd encounter, indeed. It all happened when matchless vocalist Ghédalia Tazartès challenged GOLs Dada-style quartet. Ghédalia threw in the game his pan-African-Asian singing techniques, blending gypsy, Jewish, and trans-continental flavor. GOL exceeded on electric mandolin, Jews harps, percussions, janotron, flutes, electric guitar, bass guitar, electronic garage, and voice. Together with Ghédalia, they developed into what became a "bal musette" for the mentally-disabled. Reaching at some points the side of rock that doesnt roll, this sonic attack jumps from topic to topic as a ritualistic anthology of unknown "ritournelles." Such a decadence was hardly contained in the neutral environment of the Swiss Cultural Center in Paris where the recording took place on Feb 22nd and 23rd, 2011. Tired liver resonances accurately rendered by the acid-yellow cover created by Dennis Tyfus of Ultra Eczema.

“Drinking Belgian beer in a moist cellar after an exhausting night might be the best situation to jump on the instruments that surround you and gig over and over again until you barely find the way to gather your legs together and improve the tricky exercise of wasted walking. This is what seems to have happened that frozen night of September 19th, 2009 when Dave Nuss (No Neck Blues Band, Sabbath Assembly) wrung from his Amolvacy concert and accompanied by mate Mik Quantius (Embryo), accepted GOLs perverse invitation to pursue the darkness of Brussels while abusing the aforementioned liquid. Warped and deep bass lines support the disturbed vocalisms and spontaneous words of Mr. Quantius, shaped by a shamanistic, percussive Nuss, while the crispy electronics and various instruments by the French GOL combo reach out for a "blues" extravaganza that says it all with lyrics such as "I have sex on Christmas" or "Tomorrow maybe not." Gollaboration No.5, recorded at 2:00 a.m. by Yann Leguay. LP cover and insert with drawings by Mattia Denisse, give a hint of this twisted and skittish psychedelic must-have.

"Barry Thomas Goldberg was 23 in 1974, the year his Minneapolis power pop group, The Batch, split up. Rudderless, he set about recording solo album Misty Flats, and though few would hear it in its day, he hit on something very special indeed. In 1974, the world was weary, the Vietnam War was ending, America was at this place where it didnt know where it was heading, it was the fumes of Watergate days, says Goldberg now. Id just left my band, and I didnt know where I was heading either. And thats what Misty Flats represents: neither high road nor low, but somewhere in between. Where The Batch were a harmony-drenched power pop band in the mold of Big Star and The Rubinoos, Misty Flats was an album of ecstatic desolation, an unhinged loner-folk gem that came from a unique place: I wanted to make the first punk rock album, and if Id recorded those songs with a band, maybe thats what it wouldve been, Goldberg says. The album was, instead, recorded in mono in a two-day recording binge on a two-track Ampex tape machine. It features just Goldberg and his friend Michael Yonkers, author of the cult 1968 LPMicrominiature Love, playing guitar, bass, harmonica, and vocals between them. In it, we hear echoes of Goldbergs childhood in Las Vegas, where trips to the movies were surrogate babysitters for his single mother. Hollywood and Stars In The Sand dream of LA life, where Pop And Ice has a narrative straight from hard-edged 70s cinema about a drummer whos drafted into the army. Never Came To Stay details his return to Minneapolis, where he remains to this day, working as an administrator for the Minnesota Twins baseball team. Back in 74, Yonkers had crushed several vertebrae at work and used his payoff to fund five albums: four of his own and GoldbergsMisty Flats, which was pressed in a run of just 500. We were into art, not commerce, notes Goldberg now, but at the time he was frustrated his album was allowed to drift off into obscurity. Goldberg forged ahead to record a 24-track rock album called Winter Summer which languishes in the vault to this day;Misty Flats, however, is finally widely available in this first-ever reissue." - Future Days.

"Having Had Forgot marks a distinct departure from Sam Goldbergs past recordings, both his lush electric guitar and synth work as well as his borderline-pop project Radio People. Having Had Forgot features Sam working with a rotating ensemble of Midwestern musicians (Tiger Hatcherys Ben Billington, Mike Forbes, and Andrew Young; as well as J. Guy Laughlin, Ben Osbourne, and Jeff Host; for a total palette consisting of acoustic and electric guitar, field recording, percussion, synthesizer, saxophone, double bass, and clarinet). The result is eight careful, delicate songs; varied in instrumentation, but presenting the same elegant consideration of mood and contemplation as his solo works. Private music from a young man; a contemporary offering in the tradition of ensemble records on Windham Hill from William Ackerman and Mark Isham; the opportunity of actualizing personal moments through various actors and the unique textures they are each able to contribute to the whole.

"Collection gathers pre-WOODEN WAND AND THE VANISHING VOICE material from JAMES JACKSON TOTHs GOLDEN CALVES project. "It was really all about The Godz, Jandek, The Shadow Ring, Strapping Fieldhands, Swell Maps and Tower Recordings. Beyond these, I had only heard the classic and most available free jazz, krautrock and noise albums. I was a long way from, say, the second Comus album or Charles Gayle. But this music changed my life. It was a record store owner named Eric McCarthy and a man who needs no introduction to anyone reading these notes, Matt Valentine, who taught me that there was a world beyond Dischord, Vermiform and Ebullition. I went to college, met hip people, and got a job at both the local record store and the college radio station. I was taking drugs. I bought a four track and began emulating my heroes. I called the project Golden Calves. I was eighteen years old.... In hindsight, I like to think that the noise scene liked us and responded so positively to us because, in our own naive way, we were subverting a very rigid paradigm. Touring with noise bands and moving in experimental circles but playing proper songs is what made us weird. It was an exciting, unforgettable time. These are not perfect records. Perhaps worse than so-called naive art is only-marginally-informed art and thats what this is. I should have let my talents marinate for a while before rushing out records that now sound to me like thinly-veiled love letters to Siltbreeze. But fuck it, man. I was hopelessly arrogant then and remain so today. Why else would I greenlight this fucking thing?"-James Jackson Toth, Lexington, KY, Summer 2010.

"Originally engaged as a fanciful and casual collaboration between Hiss Golden Messenger and Steve Gunn, under the newfound artistic direction of Mr. Silk, Golden Gunn instead gradually developed into something more singular, evocative, and visionary. Trading loose concepts and recordings back and forth across state and Mason-Dixon lines, Taylor, Hirsch, and Gunn conjured these tunes in response to the rhythm tracks Dickie programmed on his antique drum machine. When they could reach him, Dickie weighed in with elliptical comments and encouragement but his flip phone was always breaking, and by the time they were ready for mixdown, he was reportedly in Malaysia. Formally speaking, the largely instrumental album includes some new selections and confections from each of the players which were then transformed through the amber BluBlockers of Dickie Silk and honed into an altogether stranger collaborative session vibe, copping feels from Silk favorites like J.J. Cale, Waylon Jennings, Boz Scaggs, and the Average White Band." -3Lobed.

Artist: GOLDEN RETRIEVER
Title: Light Cones
Format: LP
Label: Root Strata
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"Golden Retriever was formed in Portland, Oregon in 2008 by multi-instrumentalists Jonathan Sielaff & Matt Carlson, both long time participants in the citys potent music scene. Focusing on the relationship of two primarily monophonic instruments (Carlson on modular synthesizer & Sielaff on bass clarinet), and utilizing layering with a deft balance of improvisation & composition, the duo has created an infinitely varied approach to their sound world: dense, spacious, overwhelming, soothing and completely alien in equal measure. Light Cones is unique in the Golden Retriever discography as its their first release more akin to their live performances, with each of the LP sides consisting of one extensive track. Both sides find the group exploring the various colors of their pallet. From the electronic bog that opens side A, to the more zoned out meditations of the first half of side B. Sielaffs bass clarinet continues to be an anchor for the duo, with its lower organ-like register providing a wide earthly gravity for the layering of sound." -Root Strata.

Format: CD

Country: Germany
Price: $18.00
"Theres a myth about music critics according to which they are frustrated wannabe performers. Evidence to the contrary: Vivien Goldman. The London-born, New York-based Goldman is one of the foremost chroniclers of the perfect storm of reggae, punk, hip hop, and Afrobeat, but between 1979 and 1982, she was also a working musician, creating songs that, years later, would be sampled by The Roots and Madlib. These rare girl grooves are now collected for the first time on Resolutionary, covering Goldmans first three musical formations; first as a member of experimental British new wavers The Flying Lizards, next as a solo artist with her single "Launderette" featuring post-punk luminaries, and then as half of the Parisian duo Chantage with Afro-Parisian chanteuse Eve Blouin. Goldmans eclectic musical crew included PiLs John Lydon, Keith Levene, and Bruce Smith; avant-gardists Steve Beresford and David Toop; The Raincoats Vicky Aspinall; the mighty Robert Wyatt; Zaires Jerry Malekani; Manu Dibangos guitarist; Viv Albertine, then of Goldmans good friends The Slits; and dubmaster Adrian Sherwood, who produced the majority of these tracks. Goldman sang in a lilting, clear-toned soprano honed during childhood. She began her singing career in the late 70s, doing backup with Neneh Cherry and Ari Up (The Slits) on Sherwood records by reggae artists including Prince Far I. Goldman was grooving to the innovations of dub. The contrast between Goldmans high, lilting tones and the deep rumble of the bass is a hallmark of all her work, giving a haunting frisson of sex and alienation to songs like The Flying Lizards "The Window." Reggae had been her London soundtrack, but after moving to Paris in the early 80s, she absorbed music from Africa, an interplay audible in exultant Chantage tracks like "Its Only Money," a mix of steelpan, African soukous guitar, and sobbing Romani violin riding ferocious funk. As the 1990s began, Goldman moved to Manhattan and became New York Universitys "Punk Professor," teaching original courses on punk, Bob Marley, David Bowie, and Fela Kuti. But she never stopped singing and writing songs. Chicks on Speed released a later cut, "7 Days," on their 2006 Girl Monster compilation (COSR 033CD). Her house 12" records with artists including Berlins Moritz von Oswald are compiled on LPs. Goldman has also co-written tracks with Massive Attack, Coldcut, Ryuichi Sakamoto, and Luscious Jackson. Early in 2016, she performed dub readings onstage with Bostons Berklee Marley Ensemble. Her multimedia beat goes on." - Staubgold.

Title: Remiksz
Format: Cass
Label: The Tapeworm
Country: UK
Price: $8.00
"Cassette-only release. Limited edition of 250 copies only. This is a remix of Fenneszs Szampler cassette, created by Stefan Goldmann, erasing Christian Fenneszs original samples one by one and replacing them with corresponding samples of his own, made between 1999-2010 for his Akai S5000 sampler, in the same sequence. As a result, this cassette contains no sounds whatsoever from Fenneszs original. While Szampler was a journey through Christian Fennesz own sample collection, Stefan Goldmann structured his own sound archive around the layout of Szampler, replacing it all sound-by-sound. The result is a dialog of the sonic atoms that built the works of two of todays most challenging musical minds. Its a first-ever glimpse behind the curtains -- a full anatomy of sound, more revealing than any interview on "how it was done." When asked for his opinions on the art of the remix, Mr. Goldmann was unavailable for comment. So, instead, heres some words, written by Trevor Horn in 1986, that appeared on the rear sleeve of Frankie Goes To Hollywoods Warriors Of The Wasteland 12" single: "This twelve wild disciples version of Warriors is, of course, a remix of the track that opens the Frankie album Liverpool. The question is now begged -- what is a remix? It used to be a change of clothes, now its a dream come true. There is one answer. On Liverpool, the members of Frankie Goes To Hollywood played Warriors with their own notoriously fair hands: touching their instruments, squeezing, banging, urging, making noises which were recorded by microphones onto a tape recorder. This so-called 12", this marketing invention, this golden gate to possibilities is in fact a total cheat. What is a remix? A total cheat. There is another answer. No one played anything, in any orthodox sense. It was all done by computers, very powerful computers (38 megabytes RAM 600 megabytes hard disk storage) juggling and organizing pre-recorded sounds. We all had a hand in it -- that is, myself, Steve, Andy Richards the keyboard player, the lads, Holly and Paul. We all peered over the computer operators shoulder at the little screen, to see what the hell was going on, willing the circuits to do their uncanny business. From the little screen leapt twelve wild disciples, with their gifts for the listener. What is a remix? A gift. -- when its Frankie, and Frankie only. And this 12" is Frankie. Only."

Title: Havent I Seen You Before
Format: Cass
Label: The Tapeworm
Country: UK
Price: $8.00
Cassette-only in a limited edition of 250 copies. Berlin-based producer and head of the Macro Recordings label Stefan Goldmann couches his release for The Tapeworm thusly: "Since Im a less than mediocre guitar player, but a quite versatile editing engineer with a decade of experience of handling samplers and midi-sequencers, I could finally realize an old project which I can trace back to a lesson with my bass teacher in my teen days. He had found out a bass player with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra had recorded hours of improvisations and paid an engineer to cut it together into an enjoyable jazz album. The teacher, a profound jazz player himself, found this to be some sort of scam, while I was deeply impressed by the idea of merging hi-tech and improvisation. Finally, I had a reason to play and record some guitar for this fine project and cut it to death afterwards. Havent I Seen You Before is a cycle of five pieces, with two versions each, so it can be listened to as a continuous performance, as well as looped recordings when employing the reverse function some cassette players have. The latter can be done at any point, since the parts on the A and B sides match. All material on this album has a guitar (amplified and microphoned simultaneously) as its only sound source. These initial recordings were cut into loops with durations ranging from a fraction of a second to more than a minute. They were arranged into compositions, adding reverb, stereo panorama and volume adjustments. Layering the loops creates polymetric structures, but Ive tried to avoid the usual loop minimalism by the sheer number of looped segments which appear and disappear at distinctly different rates. Micro-loops vs. macro-loops is the main structural feature of the music on this cassette, playing around with a key feature of the format. Three recordings inspired this effort: John McLaughlins 1970 My Goals Beyond album, which offered a side of multitrack solo guitar improvisations (I believe this was the first jazz record to do this) as well as his unreleased guitar/voice album with his wife (John and Eve McLaughlin). McLaughlin was heavily under the influence of guru Sri Chinmoy and both albums have this very unique, dark drug/sect edge, adding an extremely intense quality to the modal guitar figures (well, probably also due to the Indian music he has been studying and merging with some impressionist composition techniques). I have tried to capture a bit of the mood and apply it to a loop-based, cut-up orgy. Another crucial record to me has been Derek Baileys Ballads -- Ive been astonished by the tidal movements in and out of the standards hes playing around with. So there is a harmonic base to my guitar mishandling, which is present throughout the entire album -- moving in and out of it. Id also like to note I applied an altered tuning to the guitar to achieve different natural harmonics than the ones one gets with the standard tuning -- and not to give in to the temptation of cutting some blues licks." --Stefan Goldmann, Berlin, 2009

Title: Early Electronic/Tape Collage Music
Format: LP
Label: Alga Marghen
Country: Italy
Price: $28.00
"Alga Marghen proudly presents an LP edition including some of the seminal electronic/tape collage pieces by Malcolm Goldstein, created in close connection to the sulphuric New York pre-Fluxus environment of the early 1960s. The 1960s downtown New York City, rich with activities, doors opening upon a world fertile with possibilities: the delightful unknown. Malcolm Goldstein first worked at the Columbia-Princeton Electronic Music Center, then joined the Judson Dance Theater with dancers, musicians, poets, and visual artists all interacting in the common ground of improvisation/exploration. Most of the music on this recording was created for the Judson Dance Theater, Sheep Meadow (1966), a collage of two musics, folk & court music, was realized on a very cheap single tape recorder that offered its own electronic distortion embellishments. It was created for an anti-war demonstration to be held in that meadow of Central Park, with a dancer on top of a flat-bed truck and with loudspeakers. Images Of Cheng Hsieh (1967) was for a dance by Carol Marcy at Judson Church, simultaneously with an instrumental ensemble performing from the calligraphic graphic score, with the name of Cheng Hsieh. It Seemed To Me (1963) was composed for a dance by Arlene Rothlein; a collage of traditional musics chosen by her to be incorporated with electronic sounds. Judson #6 Piece (1963) was for Ruth Emerson, using only electronic sounds. Finally Illuminations From Fantastic Gardens (1964), the only composition for a vocal ensemble on this recording, was composed for Elaine Summers An Evening of Fantastic Gardens, a multi-media event of dance, music, film and visual projections, as part of the Judson Dance Theater concerts. It is the first music notated by Malcolm Goldstein with graphic renditions of the words of Rimbaud and without traditional music notation. Two performers were trained singers, while the others were a visual artist and an actor; two women & two men, all in the spirit of the times, sources coming together, as art & life blended in an overflowing of exploration. Edition limited to 350 copies, also including a 12-page large booklet with the reproduction of the complete Illuminations From Fantastic Gardens graphic score." -Alga Marghen

Format: CD

Country: USA
Price: $13.00
1998 release. “The Seasons: Vermont is a soundscape of Vermont as charted through the changes of its yearly soundings. It is a composition in four parts (Summer, Autumn, Winter, Spring) for magnetic tape collage with an unspecified live instrumental/vocal ensemble. Though the actual composing of the music was completed between 1980 and 1982, it is the realization of a ten-year composition project. Goldstein listened closely and became attuned to what was the particular sound quality of each season in Vermont. He then took the sounds that he had recorded and made a tape collage which, for him, arrived at that particular, essential quality of each season. This recording is the complete, unedited premiere performance that took place on Feb. 26 1983 at Real Art Ways in Hartford, CT. The booklet contains examples of the scores as well as excerpts from Goldsteins journals from 1977-1982.” - XI.

Title: Fog Frog
Format: 7"
Label: Meeuw Muzak
Country: Belgium
Price: $8.00
“The future is female”, announces the well-known homosexual ironist Max Goldt here (on Ladies Ladies) speaking in 1983, long before getting married to a woman and thereby exhibiting a confounding yet admirable internal consistency. This finely-tuned sense of amibiguity will be familiar to those who have followed Goldts work as a musician and then an author since the late 70s. He is of course also a noted columnist in the German-speaking world. Here on this record his lyrics and vocals are filleted from the historical timeline for a reconstitution involving the various talents of Mr Kubin and Mr. Boombastik.
Mark Boombastik: musician, singer, DJ and human beatboxer par excellence – giving the frogs something to hop to here on Fog Frog. Felix Kubin: Ubiquitous celebrity in an alternative universe, but in ours a nebulous presence in the musical underground since the heyday of the Neue Deutsche Welle. A self-professed dadaist, one shouldnt try and linger too long on a definition for Felix. He is, however, the wicked svengali whose tendrils traverse time and space to tickle this record into existence, because Side Bs Ladies Ladies, as previously mentioned, is actually a post-feminist pre-ejaculation from way back when, here recently gently re-agitated in the Kubin studio. The 2003 “too-Neubauten” mix (involving electric heater percussion) of Fog Frog has been updated to a more judiciously organized final version, whilst still retaining the original tipsy-sounding recording of the famously discerning Mr Goldt in his hotel room. Aged like a fine wine, perhaps. Indeed the thin pining sounds come from a Fellini-inspired choir of wine-filled glasses. So, the old ladies meet the new frog princes and off they go. Here is the transformation." - Pete Um.

"Epic early to mid-1970s instrumental psychedelic space-rock from the Pyramid Records archive, said to be pseudonymous after-hours studio sessions featuring the biggest names on the Krautrock scene at the time; heavy drums, jamming guitars and Hammond organ: in short, an amazing improvised free-form trip of impressive magnitude, on par with the music of Krautrock heavyweights like Neu! and Gila. An adventurous atmosphere throughout, whether the result is hallucinogenic and jazzy (Jupiter), the heavy freak and roll of The Returning, with crushing guitars and massive, repetitive, almost funky rhythm, or the Jimi Hendrix-inspired Godhead Dance. Booklet essay examines the controversy surrounding this and other recordings first made known to the world via Virgin Records three disc Unknown Deutschland series of compilations from the 1990s, including the fact that one Genius P Orridge is named as producer of the Golem album. Its clear enough to all that Genius P Orridge is strangely similar to the name Genesis P Orridge, he of Throbbing Gristle and Psychic TV fame. The fact that the other names on the Golem album jacket lead nowhere only adds to the confusion. In any case, a deep and fascinating record, still fresh despite the years... and meant to be played loud." - Acme Gramaphone.

"Brooklyn-based multi-instrumentalist Billy Gombergs past work has released by labels such as and/OAR, Digitalis and Sunshine Ltd. In addition to his solo output, he operates in a variety of collaborative settings (including Fraufraulein, a duo with fellow label alum Anne Guthrie) and, over the course of the last five years, has carved out a niche for himself at the crossroads of electro-acoustic improvisation, ambient, and minimalist music. The beguiling Slight At That Contact brings to mind both the bucolic electronica of Microstoria and the expansive arrangements of Mirages-era Tim Hecker. Medial opens the record with a sea of vaporous, blooming tones set against an array of delicately percussive clicks and cuts. Acute further develops this, conjuring the cinematic atmosphere of a train station in a ruined, futuristic metropolis. Over the course of eight understated but nuanced compositions, Gomberg cultivates an intoxicating aural topography, a deep, expressive collection that offers considerable rewards to the attentive listener." - Students of Decay.

“As a member of Lumisokea, Berlin-based Andrea Taeggi shapes acoustic and electronic sound alongside Koenraad Ecker into their singular take on bass music. Time signatures fold into themselves, volleying voluptuous percussions and seismic synthscapes. This fixation extends beyond press hyperbole into aesthetic and philosophical study on Aum, the debut release of Taeggis Gondwana project. As Gondwanaland was a pre-Pangaean unified land mass, so is Taeggis solo mission to draw all of his influences together and mediate the whole. Opener "A Gospel of Dirt" sets the scene with sparse sonic elements fused against a metallic backdrop. Sounds morph from liquid to solid shapes, melodies set to scales of a different time and place. "Bootstrapping" tickles ears with its off-color arpeggios backed up by a nine-legged gallop in the tesseract. "Þingvellir" opens the B-side in majestic style, a paean to glaciation, to gargantuan movement unmeasurable in human time. Cast in bronze tones, fizzing with combs before its deafening crescendo. Aum is a special record from a special musician and presents a modern take on cinema for the ear. Mastered by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering.” - Opal Tapes.

Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"Kye is proud to present French Antarctica, the debut LP by Good Area. Drawing from a palette of guitar, rhythm box, cornet, shortwave radio and room activity Good Area have crafted the ultimate stand-alone testament to instantaneous expression. Bypassing such obsolete concepts as dexterity and restraint French Antarctica cuts loose with a raw unbridled rush of creative force, bristling with home-spun malevolence and anti-social aplomb. Good Area harvest the wisdom passed down from the Decayes, Semool, Nishimura Alimoti, and other bastions of shoe-box cassette culture and transcribe their teachings into epic new screeds of confusion. French Antarctica arrives in a full color, high gloss sleeve, with commemorative postcard, in an edition of 400 copies." - Kye.

Title: La Planete Sauvage
Format: LP
Label: Superior Viaduct
Country: USA
Price: $26.00
2016 repress. "Animated sci-fi masterpiece La Planète Sauvage (aka Fantastic Planet), winner at Cannes Film Festival in 1973, is a bizarre and beautiful film. Towering blue-skinned figures, tiny humanoids in the midst of revolt, and drug-induced Tantric sex transport viewers to a truly magical setting. Composer Alain Goraguer creates an equally hypnotic score from a palette of effects-laden guitars, flutes, Fender Rhodes, and strings. While the lush arrangements are reminiscent of Goraguers collaborations with Serge Gainsbourg in the 1960s, space-age synth flourishes suggest a more psychedelic era. Moody vignettes flow together in tense, slow-paced funk rhythms and Baroque textures. It comes as no surprise that La Planète Sauvage has been cited as an influence on contemporary artists such as French duo Air and American hip-hop producers J Dilla and Madlib. Gorgeous, interplanetary soundscapes resemble the surreal meeting point between Pink Floyds Obscured by Clouds and Broadcasts Future Crayon. This long out-of-print vinyl release features the original soundtrack recording and newly designed artwork. Recommended for fans of Ennio Morricone, Basil Kirchin, and David Axelrod." - Superior Viaduct.

"Recently unearthed Peter Gordon & David Van Tieghem collaboration from 1978, featuring vocals from special guest Kathy Acker, author of post-modern classic Blood And Guts In High School (1984). Gordon and Van Tieghem play all of the instruments and electronics, overdubbing on a 1" 8-track recorder. The result is intimate and vulnerable, yet ice cold and edgy. "Winter" is a cold-wave, proto-techno track. "Summer" is a lyrical and romantic instrumental. With Van Tieghems drumming laying down the bedrock, the acoustic piano and vari-speeded marimba take turns drifting in-and-out of the foreground. Artwork features two new original, drawings by Laurie Anderson." - Foom.

"Vinyl debut of long-running Cincinnati Ohio/Northern Kentucky improv unit circling the center of saxophone/electronics Tim Schwallie (of The Wolverton Brothers) and doublebass/electronics Scott Hisey. Over many many many many years the core remain the same with various collaborators and members walking in and stepping or falling out, but the core remain the same, as they stepped in and fell out of modes such as free improv, free funk, free song, as evidenced in these on record. And included on record is a highly-picked sample of highlights from Gordy line-ups, including involving Clayton "Chicken" Gunnels (RIP, of the JBs, "America Eats Its Young"-adelic), Mark Perry (Heevahava), C. Spencer Yeh (Burning Star Core) and names here. "So Mark Perry discovered Clayton wandering Covington streets. Clayton was too well-dressed to be just another homeless dude as Mark put it... Mark started a dialogue which turned into sporadic jams with Clayton, then Mark decided that Gordy Horn get-togethers were the best formats for Clayton and you know the rest... Do you know karate? Tara was a singer with a very sloppy and very loud noise jam thing in the early nineties that I liked a lot--in particular I liked this pretty quiet small young girl that would transform into a screaming banshee on stage... We talked and then they moved to LA; her boyfriend oded, she moved back, and we started talking again. Scott and I were in a collaborative mood. We met up with Aimee who was willing to bring her harp around, and Gordy was a four-piece for 8 months or so around June to Dec 1999... The quartet with Spencer and Adam was really the go-to quartet for a while there (2003-2006) and I am glad we got one of those jams on the record." - Tim Schwallie, Spring 2010, Cincinnati Ohio.

Title: E2-E4 (35th Anniversary Edition)
Format: LP
Label: MG.Art
Country: Germany
Price: $26.00
Re-pressed. 180-gram LP version with embossed chessboard artwork print and printed inner sleeve. In celebration of the 2016 35th anniversary of the December 12, 1981, recording of Manuel Göttschings legendary E2-E4, one of electronic musics most influential recordings, Göttschings MG.ART label presents an official reissue, carefully overseen by the master himself. Includes liner notes by Manuel Göttsching, archival photos, and an excerpt of David Elliotts review in Sounds from June 16, 1984.

"As the story is sometimes told, Göttsching stopped in the studio for a couple of hours in 1981 and invented techno. E2-E4 is the most compelling argument that techno came from Germany-- more so than any single Kraftwerk album, anyway. The sleeve credits the former Ash Ra Tempel leader with “guitar and electronics”, but few could stretch that meager toolkit like Göttsching. Over a heavenly two-chord synth vamp and simple sequenced drum and bass, Göttschings played his guitar like a percussion instrument, creating music that defines the word “hypnotic” over the sixty minutes . . . A key piece in the electronic music puzzle thats been name-checked, reworked and expanded upon countless times." --Mark Richardson, Pitchfork.

Country: USA
Price: $13.50
"We used to carry a whole line of ⿿Gown Is a Band⿝ buttons and hoodies, but we discontinued them, because they were a lie. In truth, Gown is a person. Gown is from the islands of British Columbia Canada, and spent an entire year living on one such island alone, apart from his dog and three or more goats. If rock-qua-rock and/or its sub-forms are based on blues epistemology, then Sacred Mountains is rooted in the vernacular of sea shanties, sea creatures and sea salt in general. The music swirls and eddies as water does when trapped in a cove, just before rejoining the ocean-propers massive swells and crashing onto a buncha rocks. And I guess the music is like that rejoining, too. A process such as this is a journey and far from perfect, but the missteps sparkle and gleam like the random beauty that surrounds us. The LP was recorded over the course of a month in Florence, Mass, following a two month tour across the USA, playing in a duo with Christina Carter. Gown and Christina also contributed a side the My Cat Is An Alien split LP/CD series and have a CD out on Digitalis Industries. This LP is limited to 500, all with hand painted original covers." - Yod.

Artist: GR
Title: A Reverse Age
Format: LP
Label: Mexican Summer
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Truth comes today from Frances Gregory Raimo, once again taking up the mantle of the performance moniker GR. Raimo has been shredding with ingenious ferocity for a number of years now, both alone and as guitarist/vocalist for Gunslingers, a power trio fortified by his relentless barrage of guitar noise and rhythmic imperative. A Reverse Age is Raimos third and most intense solo album, following a collaborative EP with Michael Yonkers. Those of you in the know will hear Yonkers late 60s period influence, whether it be myth or reality (only the artist is telling), as you might also find the strange, hissing atmosphere of Alien Soundtracks-era Chrome or the psychic limbering-up of The Magic Band evident in GRs music. Real, productive damage comes from within, however, and thats where A Reverse Age performs its miracles. It figures that you would need to go back 30 to 40 years in the history of underground or fringe music to find any sort of precedent to its eight songs. Its restless nature highlights Raimos frantic compositional structures and explosive playing across guitar, bass and drums alike, the product of one guy with real vision and the skills to pull off a work of virtuosic hostility such as this one. Riffs sizzle and burn up, pushed through effects that somehow cheapen lesser works yet bolster this one. Things you know -- eldritch forest folk, roadhouse blues, aggressive jazz-style drumming -- are distended near to the point where they become part of GRs own musical syllabus, grounded by GRs street-corner vocal hustle, sounding like Armand Schaubroeck rapping into a CB radio in a stolen car, out joyriding and knocking off side view mirrors." -Mexican Summer.

Title: Rock/Music Writings
Format: Book
Label: Primary Information
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Primary Information is pleased to announce the release of the first English language collection devoted entirely to Dan Grahams writings on music. Having initially appeared in small journals like Extensions, magazines such as Fusion or REALLIFE, or the artists catalogues the publication titled Rock/Music Writings covers Grahams most prolific period of writing on music and its relation to popular and visual culture: the late 60s to the late 80s. Most of these essays are out of print or available here for the first time in anthologized form. While Dan Graham is known widely for visual art, he began writing about Rock n Roll in the late 60s and remains an active writer on music and popular culture, both of which remain major tenants of his work. In the late 70s, Graham became influential to the now infamous New York no wave scene through his friendships with Glenn Branca, Lydia Lunch, and Kim Gordon, to name but a few. Through this influence, Graham became a touchstone for many musicians, and he was responsible for helping form and inspire many bands of that era, among them the Theoretical Girls and Sonic Youth. Graham gave back to this community with his seminal video and essay Rock My Religion, as well as the essays New Wave Rock and the Feminine, and Punk as Propaganda. Other works on punk rock included in the book are The End of Liberalism, McLarens Children, Untitled, and Artist as Producer. Rock/Music Writings also contains Grahams now-infamous and hitherto unavailable texts on the Kinks, a band Graham is not shy about pronouncing the best Rock band of all time. Another rare text, All You Need Is Love (1968) is included, which exemplifies a poetic style that was then an active part of Grahams practice. Dan Graham, based in New York, has exhibited widely since the 1960s, beginning with conceptual magazine inserts and moving towards performance, video, and architecture. Recently, the Whitney Museum of American Art opened a survey of his work, Dan Graham: Beyond. This exhibition originated at Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, and is traveling to the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis in the fall." - "Primary Information. Highly recommended!

Folk, Blues & Beyond was first released on Decca Records in 1965, and is one of the most important recordings from the 1960s folk revival. "UK guitarist, multi-instrumentalist and serviceable-to-perfunctory vocalist. A seminal guitar influence, setting standards for succeeding generations. Graham was the first guitarist to emerge from Britain whose work combined stylistic elements from Julian Bream, Big Bill Broonzy, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Ali Akbar Khan, Leadbelly, Joe Pass, Segovia and others too numerous to name. John Martyn described him as his absolute hero in a Guitar Player interview 75. Of Scottish and Guyanese parents, he came to personify musical adventure, his adoption of non-standard guitar tunings, most notably D-A- D-G-A-D, arguably his most important legacy. His uniqueness became, directly or indirectly, a model for Martin Carthy, Bert Jansch, Wizz Jones and later musicians as diverse as Martin Simpson and J]aso[rgen W. Lang." -- Music Web Encyclopedia " Covers of traditional folk standards like "Black Is the Colour of My True Loves Hair" and "Seven Gypsies" combine with interpretations of compositions by Bob Dylan ("Dont Think Twice, Its Alright"), Willie Dixon ("My Babe"), Charles Mingus ("Better Git in Your Soul"), and Reverend Gary Davis ("Cocaine") for an eclecticism of repertoire that wasnt matched by many musicians of any sort in the mid-60s. --Richie Unterberger, All Music Guide.

Vocal duties, shared equally all around, complete the overall sensibility. Grass Widow has no front-person, and offers a musical experience not based on celebrity or spectacle. In line with these principles, they have maintained their objective of playing age- and gender-inclusive shows since their formation. Grass Widow formed in 2007; their first release was a self-titled LP on San Francisco’s Make a Mess Records in 2009, followed by a 12-inch EP on Captured Tracks and their second full-length, Past Time, which came out in 2010 on Kill Rock Stars. The band has toured Europe and China, and recently started their own record label, HLR.

""Influenced by similarly all-female punk and post-punk acts like The Neo Boys and Kleenex, Grass Widow also note Roy Woods The Move and The Kinks as a major source of inspiration. This can all be heard on Past Time along with the three-part harmonies, complex arrangements and odd chord progressions. Grass Widow is also influenced by a legacy of women who have paved the way through their music and politics. Their collaborative songwriting process, the fact that they dont have a front person and that they all equally contribute to the work of the band speaks to this philosophy. In addition, they take the opportunity as an all female band to bring attention to the roles of spectacle and spectator in their scene and make a conscious effort to play shows where women are involved." -Kill Rock Stars

"Grasslung is the moniker of Brooklyn based musician Jonas Asher. Sincere Void is Ashers first major above ground release and were happy to help him migrate out of the dungeon and into the twilight. After a string of small run tapes & CD-Rs that ventured into the outer realms of damaged analog drone, Asher has taken on a whole new vision for his music. The opener Scarred Hands We Drift sets the tone, with lush waves of delayed notes that usher in the records various paths of gauzy atmospherics, piano drift, lost melodies and body rhythms built from static. This music is bare in the best way, with most of the tracks here held together by pings of electricity or faint loops of harmony shot from the other side, all slowly crafted into melancholic tapestries good for keeping you warm during midnight trips to the void. Edition of 500 CDs in offset printed sleeve." -Root Strata

Baltimores Grasslung presents a somewhat more doom laden sci-fi take on modular synth, compared to his more minimal, and constrained pieces of the past. Both artists tracks were made as an aural interpretation to that of the winged eye that graces the cover of the album. Lovecraftian, and Alien inspired.

The Paradigm label is back! First new releases in a few years, starting w/ this much in demand reissue of their first album from 1973. "Although the Gravity Adjusters Expansion Band (GAEB) started in 1967, they remain one of the long lost and underestimated groups that explored the areas of sound sculpture, improvisation, experimental music and free jazz. The group have their roots in playing in and around the San Francisco Bay Area, and finally recorded their first LP in Los Angeles. Free jazz drummer Lee Charlton seamlessly shifts the moods from jazzy phrasing into the far more abstracted ideas of the world of sound sculpture. It is this abstract world where the GAEB mostly reside, using the invented instruments of multi-media artist Richard Waters, many of whose percussive and bowed instruments incorporate water filled resonators to bend and tune the sound. Although many other improvisors at the time like AMM, MEV, Sonde and Taj Mahal Travellers all made extensive use of home made and adapted instruments, the GAEB are a very different concern with their own unmistakable identity. Their first LP One appeared in 1973 on Nocturne Records, a small Californian label. It was the first of their 2 LPs, the second appearing some 8 years later. This CD edition is a reissue of the first LP from the master tapes and also contains some 15 minutes of extra material from the time." - Paradigm Discs.

Title: Shades Of...
Format: LP
Label: Plush Safe
Country: USA
Price: $21.00
"Limited LP version, first released on CD in 2011. In downtown New York City, in 1979, painter Jean-Michel Basquiat and performance artist Michael Holman founded their industrial-sound band, Gray. Jean named the band after Grays Anatomy (the human anatomy textbook), an important reference source for his paintings and the perfect name to capture the haunting, machine-like ambient music the band wrote and performed. In the Whitney Museums catalog for Basquiats 1991 Retrospective, Robert Farris Thompson, professor of Anthropology at Yale, wrote this about Gray: "They worked the Mudd Club, CBGBs, and Hurrahs in New York, where Blondie and the Talking Heads were at that time emerging. They performed, in other words, at the epicenter of New Wave. Here they contended for space and recognition with a style that, in Basquiats own words, was incomplete, abrasive, and oddly beautiful." In an Interview magazine review (Jan. 1981) Glenn OBrien wrote: "Gray became an industrial sound effects band. They played on scaffolds ... Lately, theyve really developed their own groove... its sort of an easy listening bebop industrial sound effects lounge ensemble." Besides Basquiat and Holman, other members of the original group were Nicholas Taylor, Justin Thyme and Vincent Gallo. Just after Jean-Michel Basquiats passing in 1988, Holman, Taylor, Thyme and Gallo re-united as Gray and performed at Basquiats Memorial at St. Peters Lutheran Church in the Citicorp Building. In 1996, the making of the MiraMax feature production Basquiat brought Grays three original members (Holman, Taylor & Thyme) back together as they reenacted one of their legendary gigs at the Mudd Club with Tony Award-winning actor Jeffrey Wright playing Jean-Michel Basquiat. While reenacting their Mudd Club gig, the members of Gray realized that 1990s pop/ambient music sounded a lot like what Gray was doing in the past. Inspired by their own historic sound, the band decided to return to the studio to create and record new music. This "new" Gray sound evolved from industrial bebop to electronica with poetic vocals and groovy beats. Michael Holman and Nicholas Taylor have now reunited once again to produce the first Gray album ever, titled, Shades Of... on their own label, Plush Safe Records, that harkens back to Grays sonic roots -- industrial noise melded with electronic atmospheres. This multi-track compilation includes and involves sample tracks from Grays earliest recordings and performances, with samples of Basquiats music and voice. The other tracks range from Stockhausen-inspired fugues, to trip-hop lanced throw-downs. Holman & Taylor were fortunate to work with John Cales drummer Dean Anthony on this new music, as well as fabled Tubes drummer, Prairie Prince and downtown scenester/drummer, Lenny Ferraro. Shades Of... is not only a living piece of New York history, its also an audio interpretation of a journey to where Taylor & Holman see the future of music. #d edition of 1000, all copies signed by Michael Holman & Nick Taylor." - Plush Safe.

This multi-track compilation includes and involves sample tracks from Grays earliest recordings and performances, with samples of Basquiats music and voice. Included is a solo performance by Basquiat (recorded by Justin Thyme) called "Suicide Hotline," where Basquiat, in 1980, called a suicide hotline, and in dramatic, and darkly teasing fashion, reads bits of his poetry to the hotline operator, never allowing the operator to know for sure if the "caller" is insane, suicidal, or simply toying with him. The effect of the piece is powerful and disturbing, yet poignant and moving in a way only Basquiat could produce. The other tracks range from Stockhausen-inspired fugues, to trip-hop lanced throw-downs.

"The third album by Brattleboros Great Valley, who walk as equals amongst the woggly dream-pop giants from the charted region of the upper Connecticut River Valley. Like their brethren, Happy Jawbone (a member of whom surfaces hereon), Great Valley concoct a strange type of pop music, with certain similarities to musicians as disparate as Californias Van Dyke Parks and Pennsylvanias Strapping Fieldhands, without yielding a single woof of their Brattleborian distinction. Blanche Blanche Blanche is also represented here by Zach Phillips, but Great Valleys take on the Southern Vermont ethos remains unique. Much of the sound on Continental Lunch has a pointedly ruralist base. Individual notes could be credited to ZZ Top or even members of the Capricorn Records cabal, yet when you engage with the entirety of their sound there is little chance of confusing them with anyone else. Their craft in creating a murky, muddled wall of sonic puh is strange, meaning its far from usual. Instrumental passages have the crudeness of a carnival band, but these link with vocals bearing the lush potency on any mock-Beach Boys hybrid you could name (even the Rip Chords), albeit with a post-punk compositional modernity that buggers easy comparison. Every song on the album here shifts mood and mode as handily as Tura Santana shifted her hips in Faster Pussycat. There are odd blips of neo-electronic pop, whichre immediately subverted by drunk sailor vocals. There are pieces of Matt Valentine/Neil Young vocalese that implode of their own volition in a shower of warm, swallowed sputum.

Country: USA
Price: $24.00
"Vinylization of an extremely blopsy concept album originally released by NNA Tapes. Great Valley are (or were? not sure) a Brattleboro duo -- Jo Miller-Gamble and Peter Nichols -- who could be joined at times by any of various Southern Vermont locals. On Lizards, the local club includes Chris Weisman, Luke Csehak, Ruth Garbus, Zach Phillips, and others. More recently, however, Jo and Peter have decided to form a new trio with Danny Bissette (whos been playing live with them), and thats called Grape Room. Whether or not this supplants (or merely supplements) Great Valleys existence is not immediately obvious, but we look forward to Grape Rooms purple spew. In the meantime, theres Lizards of Camelot to think about. The album is a song cycle that seems to be about reptiles (perhaps with outer space connections) strolling about Arthur Pendragons keep in the days of the 5th century, eating grapes, thinking about kicking Mordreds ass, and whatever else knights did back in those days. The music is a blend of experimental sound treatments and willfully off-center pop spinnery and even if you can follow the story youll find the pressure inside your head building to a dangerous degree as you take it all in. Are there hits? Yes. Are there videos? Yes, again. Tune in to Outerspace Garden or Lakey Lady and begin to deal with the repressed memories you have of your days with scales and armor. And if you want to purchase the highly therapeutic LP, act fast. Of them, there are but few." - Byron Coley; Edition of 200.

"First time reissue of this vaunted power pop classic! Limited edition of 500 copies. Green arrived on the alternative rock scene in the mid 80s, amidst a Chicago scene that included bands like Naked Raygun, Big Black, and Ministry. While Green bypassed the major label-express that other bands rode to fame and fortune, they continued to make records their own way, records that were lauded in the pages of Trouser Press, Spin, and The Village Voice, among others. And with each passing year there are those many who are convinced that their debut LP is worthy of those Mojo/VH1/Spin lists of the top 50 or 100 rock albums of all time. Green may be the bees knees for power poppers, but they deserve much more notice than that. They were an all-embracing band, with a taste for punk, glam rock and soul -- and with the twitchy sort of energy that burbled around in the late 80s pre-grunge underground." - Lion Productions.

Title: Summer of Lust
Format: LP
Label: Vinilissimo
Country: Spain
Price: $26.00
"In the spring of 1984, Jeff Kelly and I had our jam room set up in the attic of my parents house in West Seattle. Jeffs girlfriend had just left him and he was sick with the pain, certain he had just lost the one love of his life. We jammed a lot that spring, since making noise seemed to take Jeffs mind off his depression. The two of us would usually alternate playing drums and guitar, or, when we had a drummer over, Jeff and I would play guitar and bass respectively. One evening our friend Karl Wilhelm happened to be sitting in the drummers seat. I chanced to record the session on a ghetto blaster. I thought it was a pretty good jam, but the next day as I listened to the tape, the long hook-filled guitar solos and simple yet emotional ad lib lyrics about the pain of lost love seemed to be a mandate from above. I played the tape for Jeff and had no trouble convincing him that we should start a recording project and put out a cassette. A serious band would do him good and put to use the creativity that poured from his heartache. The name Green Pajamas came from the song of the same name that Jeff had written a few months earlier. This optimistic anthem seemed a fitting name for the band. The title Summer of Lust came from the turn Jeffs love life had to take, since true love had deserted him, and the fact that he and I both lusted after a date-book full of young women that spring/summer. We began recording using Jeffs Teac 4-track reel-to-reel. Basic tracks (drums, bass, and guitar) were recorded in my attic using one microphone placed in the center of the room. Over-dubs and mixing were done in Jeffs bedroom at his parents house, where he had spent years recording songs he wrote. We decided to include "Anna Maria" and "Lost in a World," two songs that we had recorded there the previous winter. We spent the next week mixing, and the recording was done. The next day we found a tape duplicator through the yellow pages and Summer of Lust was officially released on July 14, 1984, with a first run of 25 cassettes. By that evening, they were available at our favorite record store. And that is my story of the making of the Summer of Lust and the conception of The Green Pajamas. About four months later I got a phone call from a man named Tom Dyer. He had just bought a copy of our tape and was writing a review of it for Option magazine. He also mentioned that he ran Green Monkey Records and had an 8-track studio in his basement. The rest is recorded history." --Joe Ross.

Title: Stone (FKR 10th Anniversary Edition)
Format: LP
Label: Finders Keepers
Country: UK
Price: $26.00
“To mark its 2015 ten-year anniversary, the Finders Keepers label presents a remastered, repackaged repress of its 2010 reissue of Billy Greens soundtrack to the 1974 Australian biker film Stone. Features updated liner notes and an alternative sleeve design based on the original Japanese theatrical poster. Stones trailer says it all. A deep Australian drawl narrates the scene over a psychedelic swamp-funk rhythm section doused in electronic percussion and treated keyboards. The screen fills with images of slo-mo bike accidents, hallucinatory trips, and a death-defying cliff stunt that could easily be mistaken for a doppelgänger scene in Psychomania (1971). Cut to a satanic ritual burial at the hands of a denim-clad crew of outlaw bikers with strangely familiar faces. To many global record collectors, DJs, music producers, and general retrophiles living outside of Australia,Stone was primarily known for its electronic sound effects, psychedelic guitars, cosmic soundscapes, and funky basslines. In the 80s and 90s, before the global DVD boom, Stone was primarily a soundtrack for most people -- the kind of soundtrack that makes the listener wish the film were available. The original LP artwork alone is beyond enigmatic, with its embroidered logo (designed by writer, director, producer, and star Sandy Harbutt) alongside its strikingly futuristic airbrushed chrome insignia (designed by comic artist Peter Ledger and realized by airbrush whiz Errol Black). The huge parade of Kawasaki bikes inside the gatefold sleeve looks like something from the future compared to the classic full-dresser Harleys from American biker movies. And when the needle drops into the groove and the freakish blend of didgeridoo and Moog (played byJohnny "Didge" Matthews and synth expert Andy Cohan respectively) -- mixed with unidentified clicks, belches, and pops -- flies out the speakers, it is impossible to put a date, let alone a storyline, to this acid-fueled soundscape. The use of confusing and contradictory musical influences alongside bizarre noises is actually the secret sauce in this concoction and when the swampy psychedelic funk-rock rhythm section kicks in the listener is left with a 45-minute program of skewed, forward-thinking avant-pop that would stylistically fill a very lonely section in the record shop racks. There are not many records quite like Stone.” - Finders Keepers.

Title: An Idea In Everything
Format: Double 10"
Label: Okraina
Country: Belgium
Price: $22.00
"2016 release. When David Greenberger first embarked on what has become a life-long journey, drummer Chris Corsano was not yet five years old! In 1979, after graduating from art school in Boston, Greenberger took the job of activities director at the Duplex Nursing Home, an all-male elder care facility in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts, and began collecting the stories, poems and music reviews of its aged patients for what became his Duplex Planet project, an undertaking that would eventually encompass nearly 200 issues of a digest-sized magazine, a series of CDs, books, comics, and performance art. Eventually the nursing home closed, but David has remained engaged in what has become the central art form of his life: the "art of conversation." Three decades later, Chris Corsano set in motion the project present here. With guitarist and banjo player Glenn Jones, a longtime friend of both Greenberger and Corsano, the three began recording in Greenbergers living room in upstate New York. In just three days, with no advance preparation, they recorded the 28 tracks that make up An Idea In Everything. Corsano improvised, Jones invented new tunings for his banjo and guitar on the fly, and Greenberger selected and read stories in direct response to the music. Everything was spontaneous and live. Despite the dark and sad feeling of some of the texts (dealing with aging, memory loss, etc.), there is also humor, joy and grit. The resulting is a rollercoaster of emotions, a glittering patchwork of sonic atmospheres and an oral encyclopedia on dozens of subjects. David Greenberger on the release: "When newcomers hear that I have regular conversations and interviews with elderly people, they assume I collect oral history.

From the start, my mission has been to offer a range of characters who are already old, so that we can get to know them as they are in the present, without celebrating or mourning the loss of who they were before."

"Britains best known sound poet is Bob Cobbing, but its hard to come up with a list of other sound poets working in Britain in the 60s and 70s. Its equally difficult to think of any female sound poets working anywhere. LILY GREENHAM was Danish, but spent her childhood in Vienna. After several relocations across Europe she settled in London in 1972 with her British husband (musician and poet Peter Greenham), where she lived until her death in 2001. Nearly all of her own writings and compositions date from after her arrival in London, but prior to her arrival in London she had been involved in two major European art movements. The Wienner Group in the late 1950s and the "Groupe de Recherche dArt Visuel in 1964. In London she began to record her own text based compositions that used a mixture of sound poetry techniques, electronics and multi-tracking. The term lingual music that she coined for her compositions refers to her technique of using tape loops of text to create complex and dense musical structures. This 2CD set compiles a wide variety of her own work, including live solo performances, film soundtrack pieces, as well as many tape pieces. The recordings date from between 1968 and 1984." - Paradigm

Title: Damaged III
Format: LP
Label: Feeding Tube
Country: USA
Price: $25.00
"While we were playing the test pressing of this album, the UPS guy came in with a package. He looked at the speaker and said, Sounds like that babys busted, champ. Chris and I looked at each other and jumped him, popping his eyes out of his head and dragging him into the back room to drain his blood amidst the back stock. Damaged III is that kind of album. Back when I lived at the Believers House in Easthampton, Grey Skull Manor was just downstairs and we would often feel the evil emanations seeping through the floorboards. Of course, this was long before the trio hung up their horned hats and went straight -- George Myers becoming a yuppie movie booker, Jeff Hartford forming the Jeffrey Hartford Sextet Plus One, and Dan Cashman founding the... Fribbles. Back in those days, there was no room for Milkshake Rock amongst these cavemen. Their sound is a perverse improv/noise/metal/core hybrid that makes ones ears bleed with the sheerest pleasure imaginable. Years in the making, Damaged III takes its blueprint from a Black Flag boot cassette called Damaged II. The idea was to take elements of that specific set of tunes and emphasize aspects of them that would deform their intent and meaning. No effort was made to replicate Rollins vocals (indeed, it sounds like theyre all gargling hot dinosaur jizz), but instrumental and lyric samples form the basis of the compositions. An extraordinary, dare I say, Herculean effort by three guys I just previously thought were a menace to society. That was before the Fribbles, of course. Coming to a town near you! Edition of 200.

Title: Amaterasu
Format: 7"

Country: Japan
Price: $18.00
Unplayed original copies of the first Grim release, from 1985. Numbered (hand-stamped) edition of 1000, with a 12-page b&w booklet. Self-released by Jun Konagaya as the third release on his Eskimo label following the much sought-after LP and 7" by the legendary White Hospital (Konagaya and Tomo Kuwahara) from a year prior-- though the label here is confusingly also listed as G.A. Propaganda, actually just a one-off offshoot of Eskimo. This material was included on the recent Vinyl-on-Demand box set and the earlier CD compilation released on Haang Niap (run by mems. of Kito Mizukumi Rouber, Keiji Hainos Nijiumu project, etc). Konagaya plays "percussion, pulse, bass, organ, voice."

"In Grim, Konagaya took the noise/junk techniques of industrial music as his core methodology, but what made his sound unique were the elements of ethnic music and folklore and the shamanic sensibility that oozed from within. In 1985 he released a three-track 7" single with the title Amaterasu, the sun goddess of ancient Japanese myth. The record was superlative, from the combination of metal percussion, feedback and electronic noise shrouding his roaring agit-prop vocalizations, to the way that the monstrous fairytale of the title track destroyed time and space." - from the liners to the "Folk Songs for An Obscure Race" comp on Haang Niap.

"GRIM is an absolutely amazing, almost skizophrenic and obscure power-electronics and noise-one-man project of Jun Konagaya. Juns sound change its mood and athmosphere in seconds. From extreme harsh and hard power electronic noise-walls to ingenious folk-songs and tunes as you know it from Charles Manson. In the very early 80s Jun formed White Hospital together with Tomosada Kuwabara. They released one album called "Holocaust" in 1984 and split. At that time Jun had already released the "Vital“ Tape with his project GRIM. Kuwuhara moved on to form Vasilisk while Jun continued as GRIM releasing one Lp, 12" and 7“ as well as contributing to several compilations during the 80s." - Vinyl-on-Demand.

"Grim Tower is the collaborative project of Stephen McBean (vocals/guitar/synths) and Imaad Wasif (vocals/guitar). The album, called Anarchic Breezes, was written around the central idea of a new acoustic death folk, yet could be heard as equal parts Harry Smith and Harry Pussy. Both songwriters, Canadians now based in Los Angeles, come together on Anarchic Breezes to explore a mutual interest in the darker traditions of song and detuning found in the American primitive archives. The album features the ancillary rhythm section of Rob Barbato (bass) and Dan Allaire (drums), also L.A. musicians with roots deep in the modern psych movement. Anarchic Breezes was recorded by S. McBean at his home studio, with additional recording by Rob Campanella at the Jonestown Studios. It contains nine originals and one cover, the obscure Leaving My Old Life Behind by Jonathan Halper as featured in Kenneth Angers Puce Moment. It was mixed by Mark Nevers (Will Oldham, Silver Jews, Calexico, Vic Chesnutt) at Beech House Studios in Nashville. The two voices on this album serve as mediums to a yet unheard music.

"A comprehensive guide to the core recordings of one of the most visionary and inspiring, subversive and radical musicians from Italy, this 2CD box deluxe edition captures Pietro Grossis original vision, presenting a wide selection of his studio early recordings, beautifully remastered to preserve the enduring quality. Pietro Grossi used to playfully define himself as pigro (trans. "lazy"), but he wasnt lazy at all! Few musicians have been working everyday at such a cracking pace, creating, teaching and writing -- and when we listen to his music, we should bear in mind how this complex figure of musician, cellist and composer, and also visual artist, has developed creative thinking in a path where a blend of very different aspects organically cohabited. Since the late 50s, Grossi was convinced of the potential of the "new sound" and was totally obsessed with pioneering it, to the point where he would found the S 2F M (Studio di Fonologia Musicale di Firenze) in 1963 -- which made its headquarters in Florence at the Conservatorio, and then in his apartment -- spending days and nights on end splicing tapes and working with various modified machines to create his abstract soundscapes. The two CDs feature his first analogical electronic music, as well as some S 2F M studio works by colleagues such as Vittorio Gelmetti, Gruppo NPS (with Teresa Rampazzi) and Albert Mayr, while the second disc is focused on the prototype computer-generated sound synthesis." -Die Schachtel

Title: Oceanheart
Format: LP
Label: Bureau B
Country: Germany
Price: $23.00
LP version of 180 gram vinyl. "Tired of the rock format and excited by the freedoms promised by electronic music, Harald Grosskopf quit Wallenstein, a conventional rock band, in the mid-70s to turn his attention to electronica. Grosskopf thus became the first drummer to specialize in the electronic music field. He played drums on Klaus Schulzes Body Love album and on YOUs Electric Day. When Manuel Göttsching from Ash Ra Tempel asked him if he would consider enrolling as the regular drummer in the group now rechristened Ashra, he did not need to think about it for long. Grosskopf changed course again in the 80s, this time in pursuit of commercial success: he played in the NDW (Neue Deutsche Welle) group Lilli Berlin and backed Joachim Witt on his best-selling Silberblick LP, which featured the hit Goldener Reiter. Sky, the record company, were more than a little disappointed with the performance of Grosskopfs first solo effort Synthesist, so there was no great sense of urgency as far as its successor was concerned. They even halved my advance! Grosskopf recalls. Oceanheart was released some six years after Synthesist. The album title reflects my love of transcendental meditation, of course it might be taken for watery esoterics. (A similar vibe was evident in the cover art, hence fresh artwork has been created for the reissue). Musical equipment for the production was limited by the labels ongoing thrift program. The first Oceanheart recordings took place under the roof in the Lilli Berlin Studio, Kreuzberg. They were completed at the Spandauer Studio by former Tangerine Dream member Christoph Franke. We mixed everything down and recorded the drums there. Harald Grosskopf again played everything himself, except for the tablas. In keeping with its predecessor, Oceanheart was no best-seller, but, like Synthesist, it attained cult status, rediscovered in recent years through the internet by a younger generation. Harald Grosskopf himself needed time to appreciate the work: I only really discovered the musical quality of Oceanheart years later. I finally realized that I had created something quite special." -Christoph Dallach.

"Harald Grosskopf was in his early twenties when LSD blew [his] reality away, as he recalls. Born in Hildesheim in 1949, he had previously drummed in fairly conventional rock bands, most recently for Wallenstein. Their label-boss Rolf-Ulrich Kaiser was fond of facilitating jam sessions for musicians on his Ohr und Pilz label, often supplying his cosmic couriers with LSD (unbeknown to them, on occasion). In one such session, the drug inspired something of an epiphany in Grosskopf: There I was playing the drums when, in the midst of my euphoria, I realized that I had been imitating other drummers. Suddenly a voice spoke to me: stop trying to sound like Billy Cobham or Ginger Baker. From that moment on I felt liberated, free to drum without having to shine in a particular role. Having discovered his own musical identity, Harald Grosskopf understood that a standard rock combo was not the ideal conduit through which to express it. Grosskopf: I was completely in thrall to electronic music and the total freedom that it offered. This was the music I wanted to create. I knew it would be a success, the energy levels were so high. Grosskopf consequently left Wallenstein. I fell into a hole at first, wondering what I was going to do. So I sold my prized drum kit and used the money to buy a guitar, amp and echo device. A few days later, the doorbell rang. It was Manuel Göttsching, on his way back to Berlin from a tour of France. They knew each other from Berlins electronic scene and recording sessions for the likes of Ash Ra Tempel. Göttsching invited Grosskopf to sign up for his new project Ashra and the rest is history: Ashra (Grosskopf, Gottsching, Lutz Ulbrich alias Luul) released a series of successful albums in the years that followed. It was not until the summer of 1979, however, that he finally felt ready to release a solo album. Synthesist comprises eight instrumentals, recorded largely by Grosskopf on his own. His melodies, carried along by synthesizers and drums, were reminiscent of works by Berlin electronic friends such as Klaus Schulze and Tangerine Dream, as well as those cosmic sessions of the early 1970s -- yet each melody retains a unique timbre. Synthesist is thus regarded as a classic by electronic music enthusiasts all over the world, evoking a thrilling musical era of the past with equal capacity to excite today." - Christoph Dallach.

Led by the guitar virtuoso Omara Mochtar (Bombino), the groups debut LP -- volume two in the Guitars From Agadez series, represents the latest chapter in the modern sound of the Tuareg revolution. As of 2008, the Tuareg rebellion is in full force again, and Bombino is in exile to parts unknown. Agadez has been cut off from the rest of the country. The only road that connects this legendary city with the rest of the country is littered with land mines and the only escorts are the military. This music and its messages of hope, justice, and desire for validation of the Kel Tamachek way of life ring louder than ever. Group Bombino are gaining mythic status in and around the Tuareg community for their incendiary live performances. Coming from the same scene as Group Inerane and sharing some of the same musicians, Group Bombino showcase both sides of the Tuareg guitar style. Side one features the "dry guitar" sound, an unplugged selection of songs sung among the dunes, camels and stars of the Tenere desert. Side two showcases the electric fury of the full band, a melding of heavy, psychedelic guitar heroics with a raw, garage sound, back beat percussion, all swirling in extended trance rock moves. Recorded live and unfiltered in Agadez and the surrounding desert in early 2007, with the bands equipment powered by generators and an unflinching dedication to the rebellion, Group Bombinos music transcends any influence and ignites the raw passion of its message to the outside world.

"Sublime Frequencies is honored to be releasing the third LP by the now legendary Group Doueh. Group Doueh have been playing in and around their native Dakhla, in the Western Sahara for over 27 years. Sublime Frequencies discovery of the group, via a song heard on a radio broadcast in Morocco in 2005 and an exploratory mission in 2006 that landed Hisham Mayet in the groups compound after chasing an overland trail all the way to the Mauritanian border sealed the bands relationship with the label. A successful European tour (with label-mate Omar Souleyman in 2009) ensued and Western audiences were finally able to witness the power of the groups mighty live shows. Douehs guitar heroics and wife Halima Jakani and Bashiri Touballis soaring vocal interplay entranced all who were present. This LP showcases a different side to Group Douehs far-reaching arsenal of sounds. The songs represented on this album adhere to the roots of Saharoui music -- drawing from the classical repertoire of ancestral Mauritanian musical modes. Using the traditional Moorish instruments such as the tinidit (three string Mauritanian lute), ardin (kora-like harp played traditionally by women), tbal (clay drum) and the kass (tea glasses) along with guitar and Korg synth, Group Doueh manage to attain heights of spiritual poetry that this music aspires to convey. Halimas ardin playing and most importantly, her vocal prowess, take this music to blissful and exalted realms. Douehs tinidit and guitar overlays showcase the technical virtuosity and command that this master has over the regions stringed instruments. This is the music of Group Douehs roots and the band truly takes these traditions to cosmic heights. Recorded by Group Doueh and Hisham Mayet on location in Dakhla, West Sahara in 2010. This limited edition vinyl LP comes in a beautiful full-color gatefold jacket." -Sublime Frequencies

Title: Guitar Music from the Western Sahara

Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"This is a CD reissue of the very first Sublime Frequencies LP, which sold out in an instant in early 2007. If you think youve heard all the great electric guitar styles in the world, think again. This Saharan sand-blizzard of fine-crushed glass will grind your face to a bloody pulp. Group Doueh play raw and unfiltered Saharawi music from the former colonial Spanish outpost of the Western Sahara. Doueh (pronounced "Doo-way") is their leader and a master of the electric guitar. Hes been performing since he was a child playing in many groups before finally creating his own in the 1980s. Doueh says hes influenced by Western pop and rock music especially Jimi Hendrix and James Brown. His sound is distorted, loud and unhinged with an impressive display of virtuosity and style only known in this part of the world. His wife Halima and friend Bashiri are the two vocalists in the group. Sahrawi songs are from the sung poetry of the Hassania language. The music is based on the same modal structure as Mauritanian music, however, Douehs style is a looser appropriation infused with a Western guitar scope, one that relies, in his words, as much on Hendrix as it does traditional Sahrawi music. It also adds a playful pop element that rarely filters through in this region. Doueh has turned down countless offers from Morocco and Europe to release his music but he decided to offer Sublime Frequencies access to his homemade recordings and photo archive for this amazing debut. CD reissue of the first Sublime Frequencies LP release. Standard Sublime Frequencies 8-page CD insert includes great photos of the musicians and liner notes by Hisham Mayet." -Sublime Frequencies

"Group Douehs follow-up to their now-legendary debut LP is here. While most would think it damn near impossible to top the former release, in terms of sheer "shock and awe," Treeg Salaam (trans. "Streets Of Peace"), blows hot and dusty from the infernal sand-swept dunes of the Western Sahara. Compiled from Group Douehs personal archives, these five tracks are as brain-shifting in their ecstatic brilliance as any music ever heard. From the wah-stroked lead-off track to the blazing dexterity of "Ragsa Jaguar," the whole of the first side is an entrance to the lip-puckering tea den of Saharan trance heaven. Salmou Baamars (Doueh) guitar/tinidit runs explode in cosmic shrapnel, raining down on the temporal nodes of the listeners brain. On "Tazit Kalifa," we have a 20-minute, smoky, slow-burning, psychedelic excursion into the great unknown. A meditation on the arid and inhospitable landscape that inspires this music and its people. Compiled by Hisham Mayet, this is a CD reissue of the limited LP pressing which sold out almost immediately upon release." - Sublime Frequencies.

Title: Zayna Jumma
Format: CD
Label: Sublime Frequencies
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Group Douehs latest record is here and the plot continues to thicken! From the gorgeously cracked yet all-embracing opening drum roll of "Zayna Jumma" (the title track), its evident this band is hell-bent on redefining the sound of its influences and in turn, shape the future sound of its surroundings. Its musical alchemy in its purest, most remarkable form, pushing at the boundaries of geographical divergence while simultaneously speaking to the shared resonances between Western rock rhythms and the pulse of the Saharan trance tradition. Since its inception, Group Douehs ability to craft pop hooks from a foundation of saharoui roots music has been a manifestation of sheer song craft and innovation. The tracks on Zayna Jumma are a deeper excavation of the groups forged terrain: a collision of contemporary Afro-Saharan grooves balanced with the searing modalities of Douehs desert origins, finally nuanced by the transcendental pop/rock/desert blues elements honed from gestating in the fringes of the Sahara desert. For the latest installment of this Dakhla familys musical dynasty, Doueh recruits his next eldest sons El Waar (synth) and Hamdan (drum kit), and wife Halima is augmented by three female back-up singers. The band keeps evolving and this album reveals its newest phase -- that of a formidable ROCK unit. The songs on this record were recorded in 2010 -- a busy year for Doueh, maintaining its day job as the go-to group of the Saharan wedding industry while still managing recording sessions and a tour with Tony Allen (Fela Kutis long-time drummer). On the heels of this momentum, Zanya Jumma is released to coincide with the groups 2011 spring/summer tour of the UK, Europe and a first-ever U.S. tour. This band continues to redefine the musical landscape and keep listeners amazed and transfixed. Its the perfect ecstatic music for the impending apocalypse, a rogue sound rooted in the past and yet boldly harnessing the aural possibilities of the landscape ahead... go ahead and jump aboard. Recorded on location in Dakhla, West Sahara in 2010 by Hisham Mayet." -Sublime Frequencies

Title: Dakhla Sahara Session
Format: LP
Label: Born Bad
Country: France
Price: $18.00
"Includes an eight-page insert and a download code. The random-access memory of an hourglass. On the one hand, theres Cheveu, the French three-member band, whose soundtrack has never ceased to question music codes by exceeding various genres and pushing back their limits. On the other hand, you have Group Doueh, a Sahrawi band from the Sahara desert (Dakhla). Their music spans across many styles and hammers tradition with unprecedented finds. In between both their remote musical universes dwells a sound clash. It embodies the meeting between two arts of living music day by day, two ways of transmitting, of enchanting the world or refusing to do so, of exploring the repertoire as well as tradition and creation, two visions of the collective - the list of reasons why these guys should have probably never met or could have failed to get along is quite extensive. This piece was recorded in two weeks in Dakhla in January 2016. The mere project seemed like a surreal challenge, something that was almost impossible to achieve and for which time was going to hold major importance. It brought about a telluric big bang, an atomic creation, a story of primitive energies setting the record straight in the whole world. That is, two radically different understandings of time." - Born Bad.

Title: Guitars From Agadez
Format: CD
Label: Sublime Frequencies
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"By popular demand, this is the CD reissue of the second Sublime Frequencies vinyl release (the limited LP release sold out almost immediately upon release in 2007). Group Inerane is the now sound of the Tuareg Guitar Revolution sweeping across the Sahara Desert and inspired by the rebel musicians that started this music as a political weapon used to communicate from the Libyan Refugee camps in the 1980s and 1990s. Spearheaded by the enigmatic guitar hero Bibi Ahmed, Group Inerane has been together for several years and carries the rich tradition of Tamachek guitar songs for another generation. These ten tracks are a combination of amplified roots rock, blues, and folk in the local Tuareg styles, at times entering into full-on electric guitar psychedelia. This music is performed with two electric guitars, a drum kit and a chorus of vocalists. The recordings were captured live in the city of Agadez in the Republic of Niger. Group Inerane was also featured in the Sublime Frequencies DVD Niger: Magic and Ecstasy in the Sahel. Recorded by Hisham Mayet, this CD reissue includes an 8-page insert with photos of the musicians and liner notes." - Sublime Frequencies

Price: $24.00
"Volume 3 of the now legendary Guitars From Agadez series is finally here. Group Ineranes sophomore LP is the latest missive from the now sound of Nigers Tuareg guitar scene. Led by guitar hero Bibi Ahmed, this new incarnation introduces another legend on second guitar, one Koudede Maman. Koudede is considered to be a cornerstone of the second wave of the Tuareg guitar lineage, while Tinariwen and Abdulla Oumbadougo are the godfathers of the scene and Group Inerane and Bombino are the third and most current incarnation of the Tuaregs voice for hope and equality. Koudedes addition to Group Ineranes line-up arises from unfortunate circumstances -- Adi Mohammed, Ineranes original second guitarist, was shot dead in the endlessly festering rebellion battles. This new line-up is testament that the music of the Tuareg will not be stopped. The sound represented on this LP is the apex of the trance stun guitar style that this scene has perfected. This is rock music as played with Saharan modes. There is a propulsive entropy to these songs that is infectious and narcotic! Two guitars, bass and drums chug along on a hypnotic choogle that rivals both the Magic Bands early 70s marathon workouts and The Velvet Undergrounds drone on tracks like "Sister Ray." This is music made from revolution and its message of hope and validation of equality of the Tuareg way of life is unstoppable. Recorded by Hisham Mayet on location in Nigers capital Niamey in 2010 as travel to Agadez was forbidden by the military Junta that had just overthrown then President Mamadou Tandja. This limited edition LP comes in a beautiful full-color gatefold jacket with photos of the musicians and liner notes by Hisham Mayet." - Sublime Frequencies.

Title: Music Of Group Ongaku
Format: LP
Label: SEER Sound Archive
Country: Japan
Price: $19.00
"Group ONGAKU, founded mainly by students at Tokyo National University of Fine Art & Music, was the 1st collective musical improvisation group. The group began their activities in 1958, & from the naming of the group in 1960 onward continued until somewhere around 1962. They attempted to create acoustics corresponding to actual time & space by means of collective improvisation. Although methodically different, the music that they pursued incidentally shared common directions with contemporaries such as John Cage & other involved in the avant-garde artist collective of Fluxus." - Takako Okamoto, taken from original liner notes.

"Three wild & woolly scrambling tracks that melt nodes. Dished are dropped, vacuum cleaners get fried, saxes, organs & cellos howl, Group Ongaku were doing it all when the only other cosmic acolyte on the scene was Alan Watts. And these recordings-laid down a couple of years AHEAD of Big Als acid jabber- make This Is It sound like the lysergic soundtrack to Hello Dolly! by comparison. Concurrently, these primal articulations bear the distinction of sounding like the COMPLETE Nurse With Wound List playing at once.. And when you realize that said posse includes Airway, Cromagnon, Don Bradshaw Leather & Throbbing Gristle among its formidable ranks, then one must understand that what is passing between their ears is an aural Excalibur of avant/experimental freakdom that almost no one knew existed. A staggering & crucial lost piece to the ever burgeoning puzzle of the weird." - Phinneas Barbital, author, Cracks Inside Planet Brain (forthcoming, 2011).

"Those familiar w/Julian Copes seminal Japrocksampler will recognize the name Group Ongaku as the cornerstone of the 32 page entry, "Experimental Japan. Simply put, this collective was edenic as the foundation of fusing avant classical input with organic,improvisational output, thus forging a singular Minimalist sound on par w/similar, radical outre composition that was taking place in the West at the same time (Cage & Stockhausens work in particular). That members of Group Ongaku would later be instrumental in founding Japans Fluxus movement as well as form the legendary Taj Mahal Travellers seems almost elementary.And while to some these recording might sound archaic, their importance can never be understated or denied. Recorded in 1960 & 61 respectively, these 3 tracks were original 1st released on CD in a small edition in 1996. Long thought to be impossible to replicate onto vinyl due to time constraints (side 1 is practically 35 minutes in length), new technology in Japanese audio restoration has made it possible for Music Of Group Ongaku to finally see a proper LP release. And the sound is most exhilarating. Personnel is as follows; Takehisa Kosugi (violin, sax, tape), Chieko Shiomi (piano), Mikio Tojima (cello), Yasunao Tone (sax, tape), Genichi Tsuge (guitar), Shukou Mizuno (cello, drums tape). Japanese import, includes English language insert, edition of 300." - SEER Sound Archive. We were thoroughly stunned hearing this after nabbing a few of the CDs way back when - ahead of its time to say the least. Very highly recommended!

Title: Dragging A Dead Deer Up A Hill
Format: CD
Label: Type
Country: UK
Price: $15.00
"This is the third full-length release for Portland, Oregon-based Liz Harris. Harris might have achieved a significant fan base thanks to the whispering, near-ambient vocal crusades of her debut album Way Their Crept and its follow-up Wide, but those with a careful ear would have heard slightly more trapped beneath her fuzzy chain of effects. Dragging A Dead Deer Up A Hill marks a departure of sorts for Liz, which sees her turn down the fuzz boxes which caged (and to some degree defined) her sound and allows her voice to ring out above everything else. It is an album steeped in the world of dream-pop -- a genre pioneered by the likes of Cocteau Twins and This Mortal Coil -- and far from shying away from the reference, Liz has instead grabbed on with both hands, creating an albums worth of perfect, left-field pop songs. Using delicate song structures which are at once both familiar and somehow alien, her vocals cry out hauntingly over stripped-down guitar lines and looped environmental recordings. Just listen to "Id Rather Be Sleeping," a track that could be a mournful take on Belly, albeit with a more fragile heart. These unforgettable harmonies and vocal lines that embed themselves into your consciousness before you even realize it are the key to the albums success and the reason why it makes such a lasting impression. There is something to Liz Harris music that defies time and makes you sit up and listen. These are the future soundtracks to love, despair and ultimately, hope."- Type
