Title: The Way Out Record For Children
Format: LP
Label: Mississippi
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Recorded in 1968, a true psychedelic masterpiece for the kids. Ms. Nelson (a child educator) and Bruce Haack (an early electronic music pioneer) designed this record to open the minds and hearts of children to deeper levels of insight and culture. Not condescending in the least and with a childlike sense of wonder, Bruce and Ms. Nelson lay into some heavy songs about everything from Robots to Indian Mysticism to Motorcycle riding fantasies. Its all in here. The music is all generated by Bruces homemade electronic instruments which churn out proto hip hop beats and straight up avante garde moments left and right. The kids in Ms. Nelsons community chime in with their voices here and there and the record ends with a haunting existential twist thatll leave you screamin for more. A great record for children and adults of all ages. Old school tip on cover." - Mississippi.

Title: Electric Lucifer Book II (In Which Lucifer Tempts Jesus of Nazareth)
Format: LP
Label: Telephone Explosion
Country: Canada
Price: $22.00
"The original Electric Lucifer was released back in 1970, and basically invented electronic music as we now know it. Bruce Haack was ahead of the entire electronic music game! Over the years, that album has been hailed as one of the most important in modern music, and is seen as a sacred thing to many, many music nerds. What a lot of people dont know is that Bruce Haack continued to make amazing music well after Electric Lucifer, and a decade later actually recorded a follow up, aptly titled Electric Lucifer Book II. Tragically, this absolute gem was not released upon original completion, and has never been given the proper North American vinyl treatment...UNTIL NOW!" - Telephone Explosion.

Title: Haackula
Format: CD
Label: Omni Recording Company
Country: Australia
Price: $22.00
"Deemed to be too dark and offensive for release when it was recorded in 1978 and bootlegged ever since, this is the first official release of Haackula. Haacks anger with society is palpable as he hisses and cusses his way over elastic electronic backings. Imagine a very, very bummed-out Kraftwerk scowling as they play childlike melodies and sing under their breath of fear and abandonment. Also included for the first time is Haacks extraordinary 1982 collaboration with Russell Simmons on the track Party Machine and the incredible 32-minute soundscape of Icarus from 1979. All tracks make their first official release here and are lovingly remastered from the original tapes. Includes liner notes, photos and full lyrics." -Omni Recording Company.

Title: The Electric Lucifer
Format: LP
Label: Omni Recording Company
Country: Australia
Price: $27.00
"Bruce Haacks The Electric Lucifer is rightly considered one of the masterworks of 20th century electronic music. Originally recorded in 1968 and 1969 (and released in 1970) it is an album both unique in conception and superb in realization. An eminently listenable work where pop-psychedelia and Moog/musique-concrete sounds coalesce around Haacks central metaphysical concept of Powerlove, a force so powerful that it could end war and unify humankind. Acclaimed upon its original release (one of Rolling Stones favorite albums of 1970 among many citations) yet unavailable on LP for over four decades, The Electric Lucifer is reissued here officially for the very first time on LP. Remastered and restored from the lost original master tapes discovered in the Columbia vault. The Electric Lucifer is your gateway to the profound yet playful universe of Bruce Haack, a far-out place where flower-power and inner-space electronics collide. Limited edition of 500 copies in deluxe replica packaging on 180 gram vinyl." - Omni.

"Co-founder and member of longstanding Lebanese post-rock group, Scrambled Eggs, Charbel Habers work encompasses a wide range of disciplines and styles such as film, video art and theatre, both as a solo artist and as a member of Scrambled Eggs, Malayeen and Johnny Kafta Anti Vegetarian Orchestra.

Country: Spain
Price: $16.50
"(Habibiyya were a ) buncha british rockers from the end of the 60s (some were in Mighty Baby) ... seems like they flipped out on sufic islam + cut a beautiful slice of eastern-influenced dronefloat for Island recs right at the start of the 70s ... well, i picked up the rec for 25p in a charity shop many moons ago, and its a real head-turner, lost classic, but not so many seem to know about it ... ANYWAYS, im only posting this because ive just found out that one of the guys in the band has made it available again on swish-looking CDR . I reckon a lot of you out there would really go for this, if you enjoy NNCK, jewelled antler, sunburned hand, sun city girls, hell even vibracathedral. Someone shd give this one the full reissue treatment some day, but until then, its nice that you can get yr hands on it if you want." - Neil Campbell. "Habibiyyas sole album stands as one of the earliest and most beautiful pieces of world music ever recorded in Britain. The musicians involved (including three members of UK underground legends Mighty Baby) had been profoundly affected, both musically and spiritually, by visiting Morocco in 1971, and became adherents of the Sufi faith. Upon their return to London they made If Man But Knew, featuring exotic instruments such as koto, shakuhachi and mandola alongside guitar, organ and drums, conjuring a hypnotic, otherworldly ambience in the process." Picked these up a year or two ago but were listing them for the first time.. Very nice full color printed artwork and CDRs, all signed by Ian Whiteman. Includes 3 unreleased tracks from the original recording session. Highly recommended!

Artist: HACKAMORE BRICK
Title: Oh! Those Sweet Bananas
Format: 7"
Label: Ugly Pop
Country: Canada
Price: $7.00
"Hackamore Bricks sole 1970 LP on Kama Sutra remains a much-desired artifact of its era, a primordial expression of seminal proto-punk and early Velvets worship. While there are several great tracks on the LP, its long been my opinion that Oh! Those Sweet Bananas was criminally over-looked and should really have been a 45 from the start. One of the great lost songs of the period, its a quick, catchy and instantly addictive burst of NYC garage punk pop at the dawn of the 70s. The flip is a beautiful and memorable slow-burner, and a different take to that on the LP. A slight change of pace for Ugly Pop, but a long-time favorite that anyone with good taste will appreciate. New picture sleeve, one-time-only pressing of 500 copies." -Ugly Pop.

Artist: HAGAR THE WOMB
Title: A Brighter Shade of Black
Format: LP
Label: Mississippi
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"HAGAR THE WOMB is for many, the missing piece of the UK anarcho punk scene. Formed in 1981, Hagar The Womb was not a typical example of that scene, for they refused to conform to the dress codes and dour seriousness of their peers. What first started as a sextet sporting three female vocalists, soon experienced a healthy bit of turnover. Circulating through at least a dozen band members, Hagar The Womb was often identified by bright colored artwork and outfits, as well as bringing an original and upbeat sound to an otherwise homogenous scene. A week after their inception, they were sharing a bill with The Mob and Zounds. Hagar The Womb would go on to play with the likes of The Apostles, Poison Girls and Rubella Ballet before breaking up in 1985. A Brighter Shade Of Black puts together both of their 12" EPs, Word Of The Womb and Funnery in the Nunnery, as well as a common compilation favorite called "For The Ferrymen." The latter recorded by POISON GIRLS sometimes bassist, PETE FENDER, in the Poison Girls own X-N-Trix Studios. Reissued for the first time and limited to 1,000 copies." -Mississippi.

Artist: HAGERTY & THE HOWLING HEX, NEIL MICHAEL
Title: Fools Watch/Lord Gloves
Format: 10"
Label: Drag City
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"The Howling Hex continue to patrol the borders of our shared musical culture, reflecting on the strange things a man might see out there in the wilderness -- and more to the point, the details a man might miss. Their latest release is a 10" single with two long tracks that push beyond previous entries in The Howling Hexs catalog -- believe it! While it is true that The Howling Hex routinely set and achieve this goal on all their albums, on this special 10", the reemergence of Neil Michael Hagerty as a leading entity gives the two epic performances a unique spin. Also special: hand rendered jackets and a print run that some might call limited edition." -Drag City.

Title: The Hildreth Tapes
Format: Triple LP
Label: Golden Lab
Country: UK
Price: $46.00
"To source the material for Neil Michael Hagerty & The Howling Hexs Hildreth Tapes, Golden Lab approached Matt Valentine (Tower Recordings/MV & EE) as he was both a big Neil fan and had the key to the "Tapers Pit" city. He got back to us right away and told us he was on it and, within about a week, hed mailed us a data CD with a note marked, "Howdy Nick, heres a whole lotta booty. You GOTTA credit Jim Hildreth." There were seven performances on the disc captured from six shows and over eight hours of material. Hildreth, we learned, is a notorious NYC taper whos turned up to practically every weirdo show in town armed with a pair of binaural mics and a digital recording device, and, after Matt put out the appeal, hed replied to say he had these shows recorded from over a 10-year period, most of the shit being from the first half of the 00s with the exception of one show recorded in 2010, and was more than happy to donate them. We took a listen. Sound quality-wise, the stuff varied as mics were placed in different spots at each show so there was no real consistency there, but what did come through were the performances. Long, drawn-out solos with intensely applied wah from 2001/2002... relentless, insanely extended repetitions of All-Night Fox riffs from 2005... cabaret-style medleys with paradoxically slapdash precision from 2010. All incredible and, on top of all that, ready-themed by the fact of its source: these were The Hildreth Tapes. Golden Lab set about the lengthy process of mastering it in a tiny flat in South Manchester in the winter of 2012. The result is this 3LP set, which features typically gorgeous, gatefold artwork by the venerable Lucy Jones. The sound quality has been homogenized to the best of their capability to give smoothness of flow to the sequencing (the label decided not to present the material in chronological order, rather in order of vibe -- this is just what felt right) and the required kick-up-the-arse where mic placement had failed to do so. And they think they have managed to get it sounding pretty sweet. Finally, Jim Hildreth gets some credit for his years of efforts in the name of preservation." - Golden Lab

Title: Public Works
Format: Book
Label: Drag City
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Public Works is a collection of 17 satirical essays and short stories by Neil Hagerty. It brings together for the first time all of Hagerys short pieces which appeared in magazines and journals during his travels through the past ten years. Collected and revised, they form a newly realized endeavor which embraces a broad set of concerns: the starkly pallid Travel Diary abets an elegy for the humor magazine CAR-toons, a short story set in the nexus of boxing and right-wing activism appends a conversation with the ghost of Al Jolson. We visit dark, dusty border towns and encounter the world within a dirty mattress. Such a classic literary genres as the western and the detective story are revisited through characters who are the compelling, ironic and humorous people we meet every day, as well as a few whom we pass without notice. Baked beans are also discussed." - Drag City.

Title: Section 2
Format: LP
Label: Drag City
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"The Howling Hex return with Section 2 in the limited edition developmental series launched in conjunction with Drag City. Superimposed over this network of connections two linear timestreams cross at the midpoint of Section 2. One flows forward and dissolves concrete memory into distant, lazy elegy. The other flows backward as in an anxiety attack, vague sensations of terror become central and vivid and the mechanics of nostalgia dissect the embrace by seducing memory to fixate on a moment before the benighted opposition attained solidity. The Section 2 vinyl-only format physically represents a point of differentiation that may be examined repeatedly while remaining free from the vagaries of human memory." - Drag City. Second volume of this series. Vinyl only edition of 500. Highly Recommended!

Title: The Return of the Third Tower
Format: LP
Label: Drag City
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Pissing in the wind, flying the flag in a fogbank, watching pornography featuring the Invisible Man -- and so, whereas, we arent doing that, as I mentioned, no hoarding on our part is invoked and we are grateful to you. It is consistent with this to exploit specific interests in the form of questionnaires or persuasive invitation and to invoke expectation confounded by events both current and persistent. Elements include: the day I handed the singer from the Durango Scorpions a laundry list and he sang it straight from the page in a crippled accent, the audience loved him for it; strict diagram of what the resulting development this is, to be used as a model for all future Howling Hex to be repeated without question; hiding in a tower that was overlooked -- perhaps it didnt exist yet it is erect." - Drag City.

Title: 117
Format: LP
Label: Diskono
Country: UK
Price: $13.00
"DISKONO 017 is a 45rpm 12" conceptual LP by Scott Haggart titled "117" . The A-Side Scott Haggarts original edit is "psychotopologically derived from a 0.7 millisecond recorded extract of a DISKONO performance (2000)." Six others (SCOTT HAGGART, EVOL, FELIX KUBIN, LARY SEVEN, CHARLIE MCALISTER, JAN VEN DEN DOBBELSTEEN) created alternate versions (resulting in seven total variations). Strict adherence was required to a rule of the versions being 1:17 seconds in duration, so as to absurdly explore the potentials of this 0.7 millisecond sound. Keywords : analog, feedback, fridge, beauty, horror sound pressure levels, implode. note : The performance is inspired by the presence of Diskono in Eindhoven, 2003 where they held a transatlantic telephone interview with PHIL MILSTIEN at the opening of the exhibition I AM A CAMERA (a JaDa-Jan Van Den Dobbelsteen/Danielle Lemaire concept-curators, also behind the telephone piece). Founded in the spring of 1998 and described as a "a Scottish multi media cabal masquerading as a record label" , DISKONO was initially based in Central Scotland but befitting its constitution as a complex carbohydrate, the constituent pieces of its chemical structure are now strewn all over the globe ; New York, London, Moscow, Brussels etc. The known and affiliated elements of Diskono were/are Klaus Oldanburg, Ruth Random, Findo Gask, Dr. Barnes Advocaat, Gunter Saxenhammer, Ttocshagg Forfib, Joel Ongthorne, Kosten Koper ; although these may be pseudonyms for the same person or persons. Together or alone, they / he / she operated a record label releasing sound art & "avant-garde flicks of the wrist" as well as curating savory pretentiously artistic projects such as the exhibition Revisionland by Alejandra and Aeron (which won an Award of Distinction in Digital Music at Prix Ars Electronia 2002) and physical remixseries of 7" records with Aerospace Soundwise and Prix Ars Electronica winner Janek Schaefer. Diskono also released music by blue-chip figures such as Felix Kubin, Alejandra and Aeron, Kid 606, Pimmon, Nomex, Ashtray Navigations, JaDa, People Like Us, Francisco Lopez, Boards Of Canada, Goodiepal, V/vm, Hrvatski, Aavikko." - Diskono.

"The controversial work which stepped into the forbidden territory of editing the performance of Haino Keiji. Yoshida breaks up their studio session boldly and restructures it from the unacceptable tune reproduced by extreme editing to the pop song thing that it is surprised. From the irregular hard core to heavy tune. From the modern music short piece, to the lyricism acoustic number. This album shows new possibility with union/condensing the music of Haino & Yoshida. This time they made 2 different (but similar) albums." 16 tracks, 50 min.-Magaibutsu

Title: 1973 Live - Milky Way
Format: LP
Label: Black Truffle
Country: Australia
Price: $26.00
"Black Truffle present the first vinyl issue of Keiji Hainos Milky Way. Originally released as a limited CD in Japan by the short lived Mom N Dad Productions in 1993, this release documents a blistering live performance recorded in Kyoto in 1973, five years before the formation of the first line-up of Fushitsusha, and eight years before Hainos first solo album. Working with a mysterious set-up including primitive electronics, homemade acoustic instruments, piano and voice, Haino lets loose a single 48-minute psychedelic maelstrom, marrying the immersive echo-fields of kosmische music to the rough and ready hands-on feel of classic 1960s live electronics à la MEV or Robert Ashleys Wolfman. Despite the absence of guitar, this recording clearly lays the groundwork for the epic blowouts which were to make Hainos name in years to come, building up to a point of almost unbearable intensity in its final minutes as Hainos voice wails over a wall of distorted DIY electronics. At times presaging the psychedelic noise of C.C.C.C., Milky Way shows Hainos singular intensity and ritualistic performance style already in full flower at this early date in his long career. Presented in raw and immediate room fidelity (complete with dramatic tape drop-out), this is both an essential historical document and a classic performance in its own right. Presented in a deluxe heavyweight sleeve with an inner sleeve featuring Hainos poetry in Japanese, with an English translation by Alan Cummings. Original design by Keiji Haino & Yasunori Arai. LP reissue design via Stephen OMalley. Mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at D&M, Berlin June 2016." - Black Truffle.

"Solo hurdy-gurdy improvisations. Haino has long been a fan of medieval music, which is one of the few places where the hurdy-gurdy makes an appearance. Its a pity that the instrument isnt more used since it has great possibilities for higher-minded multiple drones that can vary in sound from a high-pitched violin-like scraping and squealing to deep quaking resonances. The beauty of the instrument is that you can combine the various drones to build up a multi-layered effect...Hes been experimenting with them over the past year or so in various permutations -- solo, with Fushitsusha, with Vajra and in duos with other musicians. The sounds produced have ranged from gentle accompaniment to a dense brain-altering fug that blows everyone else off stage...Five tracks of beautiful late-night drones, suffused with instantly recognizable Haino atmosphere of mystery." - Alan Cummings.

"Rhythm, duration and silence lie at the foundation of all of KEIJI HAINOs music. After a clutch of documents of his hair-raising solo performances for both acoustic and electric percussion, this latest album presents Hainos first recorded outing behind a regular drumkit. Haino has long desired to release a solo drum album, and he has been playing a regular kit occasionally live for several decades now. Global Ancient Atmosphere (the alternative Japanese title means These Signs, A Sealed Beginning) contains nine tracks that showcase an austere yet thrilling investigation of attack and decay on nothing less than the molecular level.

Title: Koitsukara Usetaitameno Hakarigoto
Format: CD
Label: PSF
Country: Japan
Price: $20.00
"The return of the "21st Century Hard-y-Guide-y Man"! "With its crank handle mechanism and drone strings out-numbering melody strings, the hurdy-gurdy is the Ur-industrial instrument par excellence, a connection Keiji Haino makes abundantly clear on the opening track of Koitsukara Usetaitameno Hakarigoto, the third album he has made under the tortuously punning banner of the 21st Century Hard-y Guide-y Man. The terrifying density and textures of his bone-shearing noise immediately bring to mind the arresting closing sequence of Halber Mensch, Japanese director Sogo Ishiis document of Berlin group Einstuerzende Neubautens mid-1980s visit to Japan, when he filmed them in all their destructive glory at a busy intersection bringing the city to a standstill with their armoury of scraped metal and heavy machinery. The major difference is Haino achieves his pandemonium totally alone on an electrically amplified medieval instrument, and the chaos he invokes is of a wholly other kind to that of the displaced Berliners. Rather than creating chaos, he accepts it, even as he taps it for the tremendous energies needed to generate the overarching schemes that shape and contain his monumental works. Haino is not the only person using the hurdy-gurdy as something more than folksy color. Theres Stevie Wishart working at the interface of contemporary composition and improvisation; and hurdy-gurdy player Cliff Stapleton featured strongly in the late output of Coil (the UK outfit of John Balance and Peter Christopherson, not to be confused with the Japanese unit of the same name with whom Haino has performed blues sets live). And though the hurdy-gurdy is but one of the hundreds of instruments he has gathered during his frequent working trips around the world, next to guitar, voice, percussion and electronics, its the one on which Haino continues to evolve a distinctive body of work that is at once of a piece with and different from the main thrust of his music. Not that any one style holds true, mind, in a discography that is approaching 200 entries. As with his other instruments, Haino has developed methods of playing the hurdy-gurdy that both exploit and defy its particular character. Asked what compelled him to acquire one on a trip to France in the mid-1990s, he replied by mimicking the turning of a handle, saying it was the only instrument he knew of that you played that way, as opposed to striking, blowing, bowing or plucking it. His long-held interest in medieval European troubadour music might well have been another contributing factor. However, the hurdy-gurdy is more than the purely mechanical cranked instrument such as the barrel organ which it is sometimes confused with. The handle turns a rosined wooden wheel that bows a melody string, whose pitches are determined by pressing the tangents, or keys, with the other hand. The instrument usually contains two more sympathetic drone strings. How the player jerks or cranks the handle creates the fluttering beats and rhythms characteristic to its traditional use as a folk instrument at carnival or festival dances. Knowing as much is only so helpful to understanding the way Haino plays it. He hadnt had the instrument long when he released his first hurdy-gurdy album, Twenty-first Century Hard-y- Guide-y Man, on PSF in 1995. It was followed in 1998 by Even Now, Still I Think, released by the Japanese major label Tokuma as part of an extraordinary deal that saw the release of eight Haino/Fushitsusha projects in two stages (and if you think signing to a major in any way compromised the artist, you only have to check the number of CD length tracks of unrelieved intensity produced during the deal). First impressions from both is that Hainos instrument of choice is immaterial, that Haino plays Haino regardless, and on these two occasions the hurdy-gurdy just happened to be the tool selected to do so. To be sure, they both set out an extreme position from which they rarely retreat, with Haino sounding like hes pushing the instrument to the very limits of endurance. This is especially the case on the barely wavering 72-minute assault of the Tokuma disc. But as with much of Hainos music, it rewards the listeners perseverance through its most extenuated passages, which often come right at the front of his work, with moments of otherworldly, overwhelming beauty amid the swarming overtone activity generated at this volume. Before returning to his 21st Century Hard-y Guide-y Man persona on Koitsukara Usetaitameno Hakarigoto here, Haino dedicated a hurdy-gurdy disc apiece to the two double sets, Abandon all words at a stroke, so that prayer can come spilling out (released in 2001 by the Canadian label Alien8) and Reveald to none as yet -- an expedience to utterly vanish consciousness while still alive (recorded live at Tokyo Super Deluxe in 2005 and jointly released in December that year by the U.S. labels Archive/Important). Through them, all its possible to discern id an increasing awareness and appreciation of the hurdy-gurdys character. Its very much evident in this discs opening track, alluded to earlier, in the way the turning crank handle sinks its drone deeper to the core, even as it sends up the baleful clouds of overtone dust that hover above the churning chaos. Tracks two and three make play with the bowing mechanism of the hurdy-gurdy wheel, its sorely tested violin tone transformed into an electric buzzsaw over rasping tones that simultaneously betray and exploit the hurdy-gurdys fundamentally primitive construct. The third track, incidentally, is the albums magnificent centerpiece, evolving from a manic hoedown into a frenzied dance warding off the onset of melancholia represented by a buzzing secondary drone. Elsewhere the sounds Haino draws from the instrument range from delicate music box prettiness to something altogether darker, conjuring an image of a creaking ghost ship whose fate it was to be sealed at the point of breaking up in a storm for all eternity." -Biba Kopf

(Translation: First Lets Remove the Color). "Gorgeous new bag of home-recorded mystery from Haino. Apparently recorded alone, late at night and at minimal volume, these latest recordings tremble with the same deep-welled emotional sensitivity and sense of veiled threat that animated classics like Watashi Dake?, Affection and Era of Sad Wings. With the trademark roar of his guitar held in check by necessity, Haino instead builds up a base of gently fractured looped riffs, over which he unfurls snaking, jagged ribbons of blue notes, layers of choral chant and whispered warnings. The atmosphere is replete with suggestions of medieval music, delta blues, and jazz - but glimpsed through a constantly shifting, dark and alien fog. The effect is entirely beautiful, managing to be impossibly touching, deeply meditative, and truly scary all at once. This is one that will suck the air out of the corners of your room late at night." -- Alan Cummings.

Keiji Haino (digital theremin, air synth, air FX, etc). Another step into previously unexplored territory for Haino - his first ever all-electronic album. Uchu ni karami tsuiteiru waga itami (the title means roughly Tangled up in the universe, my pain) sees Haino using a bewildering range of electronic instruments. However, these are not the vintage synthesizers and analogue modules so beloved of some other Japanese electronic units. Rather Haino has chosen instruments whose user interface is close to magical: theremin-like devices such as the air-synth and air-FX, both of which are controlled by hand movements in three dimensions. Recent live shows have seen him hovering and jerking wildly over these devices, like some demented conjuror trying to levitate a table. The results are as purely Haino as everything else he lays his hands to. Sub-atomic particles and dark matter collide endlessly in the black and coiling chaos space of some just-appeared proto-galaxy." - Alan Cummings. Highly recommended!!

Title: Tayutayuto Tadayoitamae Kono Furue
Format: CD
Label: PSF
Country: Japan
Price: $21.00
"Fascinating and incendiary string-meshing duel between two contemporary masters of musical metaphysics. Michihiro Sato is a master of the tsugaru-jamisen, a traditional plucked and strummed stringed instrument. But forget anything you may have heard about the delicate restraint of Japanese traditional music. Sato plays in the rough, ultra-speedy, explosively percussive style associated with the bleak, rural and snowbound far north of Japan. Originally associated with blind minstrels, the instrument underwent a huge revival in the sixties and seventies, becoming a counter-cultural symbol of brutal hardship, rural authenticity, and indigenous creativity. In the hands of a virtuoso like Sato (a two-time winner of the national championship), the shamisen is an instrument that can generate emotional involvement and pulses of sheer, untrammelled excitement. Sato is also unique in his field for his willingness to experiment and play with other improvisers -- previous collaborators have included John Zorn, Fred Frith, Bill Frisell, Butch Morris, Christian Marclay, Sean Meehan and Kan Mikami. Satos first studio meeting with Keiji Haino sees a rare melding of open minds and taut strings. Common languages are invented, experimented with and discarded at will. Haino revisits the evocative nylon-strung guitar style he first explored on Hikair yami uchitokeaish kono hibiki (PSFD-8017), laying down fields and forests of string texture, while Sato burns blazing trails of narrow-beam intensity straight through the middle of your skull." -- Alan Cummings.

Title: I wonder if you noticed "Im sorry" Is such a lovely sound It keeps things from getting worse
Format: Double LP
Label: Black Truffle
Country: Australia
Price: $26.00
"The remarkable series of releases from the trio of Keiji Haino, Jim ORourke, and Oren Ambarchi continues with I wonder if you noticed "Im sorry" Is such a lovely sound It keeps things from getting worse, which presents the entirety of an 80-minute set performed at Tokyos SuperDeluxe in March 2014. While the trios 2012 performance was divided into two releases (BT 011LP (2014) and BT 012LP (2015)), the single extended performance presented here ranges widely over terrain both new and familiar, from acoustic strings and collective chants to thunderous power trio moves. Throughout all of its transformations, the music here is some of the riskiest and most abstract the trio have yet committed to record. Beginning with chiming percussion reminiscent of Hainos 1995 classic Tenshi No Gijinka, the first side is dominated by Hainos impassioned vocals and performance on the bulgari, a traditional Turkish string instrument. The end of the second side presents a special treat: Hainos first recorded outing on the contrabass harmonica, from which he coaxes bizarre, wheezing textures against a backdrop of spacious bass and percussion. ORourke and Ambarchi rarely adopt here the classic rock roles essayed on earlier releases. ORourkes bass, which takes center-stage surprisingly often, is sometimes so heavily processed by his array of pedals that it becomes a shifting electronic mass; at other times his roving chromaticism suggests a sort of fuzzed-out free jazz. Ambarchi spends much of the set exploring areas of tumbling free pulse; and even when he locks into a constantly repeated figure on the sets third side, he gestures as much toward Ronald Shannon Jacksons stuttering marching band funk as toward any classic rock moves. When the trio finally moves in the final quarter of the performance into an extended passage of rock riffing, the payoff is immense, as they craft a thudding one-chord epic reminiscent of some of the early Fushitsusha classics before Haino returns to the bulgari, bringing the set back to where it began. Continuing to explore new instrumental and dynamic possibilities while remaining grounded in the trios previous work, this set also brings with it a unique pleasure for the non-Japonophone listener: for the first time Haino sings many of his metaphysically brooding lyrics in English.

Country: Australia
Price: $28.00
"Limited gatefold double LP version with printed innersleeves. The yearly summit of Keiji Haino, Jim ORourke and Oren Ambarchi continues with Imikuzushi, which finds the group extending the power-trio strategies of 2011s highly-praised In A Flash Everything Comes Together As One There Is No Need For A Subject (BT 005LP) and bringing to them a newly-sustained intensity. For this performance, Haino limits himself to electric guitar and vocals, forming complex networks of slashing rhythm work, noise squall and chromatic shredding, moving at times to near-silent passages of howled vocals and isolated, hanging guitar strums. The tendency towards driving free-rock which surfaced on moments of the trios last release is cemented here, with ORourkes fuzzed-out, non-linear bass riffing moving the music into almost garage-rock areas, combining with Ambarchis drums to form a bedrock of hypnotic, metronomic pounding which transforms itself effortlessly into passages of flowing free-time. Like all of Hainos best work, the trio transcends any rock genre exercise to enter a non-idiomatic zone of ritual intensity, creating a music formed purely out of instrumental and group-mind possibility. Presented as four unedited excerpts salvaged from an epic show that lasted well over three hours, the sometimes raw nature of the recording only adds to its directness and harshly emotive quality." -Francis Plagne, Melbourne, November, 2011.

"...There Is No Need For A Subject Recorded one year after the international trio of Keiji Haino, Jim ORourke and Oren Ambarchis first release (Tima Formosa [BT 004CD]), In A Flash Everything Comes Together As One There Is No Need For A Subject presents the entirety of a live performance that took place at SuperDeluxe, Tokyo on January 24th 2010. For their second performance together, the trio opted for an entirely different instrumental configuration. Here they form a classic power trio: Ambarchi on drums, ORourke on bass and Haino on guitar, vocals, electronics and, in one amazing passage, lap steel. While the instrumentation has changed, the mysterious atmosphere of their first collaboration remains: far from a rock genre exercise, this performance is steeped in the dark ritualistic mood that characterizes all of Hainos best work. Haino is in truly phenomenal form herein, foregoing the single-instrument explorations of much of his recent solo work and his more peripheral role on the trios first release for a virtuosic and wide-ranging performance that takes in piercing leads, delicate strumming, jarring lap-steel interjections and his inimitable vocal caresses and howls. ORourkes bass sometimes merges with Hainos guitar to form crumbling walls of noise; at other times his dark ostinatos and runs add melodic weight. Ambarchis drumming moves from delicate, propulsive cymbal work to endless thundering streams of free-pulse pounding. The title of the release is appropriate: from the spacious and unpredictable slow-mo interactions of the first piece (reminiscent of some of the greatest Fushitsusha moments) to the wild free-riffing that concludes the performance, the trio seems uncannily attuned to one-anothers movements, and everything truly "comes together as one."

Title: Now While Its Still Warm Let Us Pour in All the Mystery

Country: Australia
Price: $25.00
Limited re-press. "Following on from 2012s acclaimed Imikizushi (BT 007CD/LP), Now While Its Still Warm Let Us Pour in All the Mystery is the fourth release from the established power trio of Keiji Haino, Jim ORourke, and Oren Ambarchi, recorded in January 2012 at their yearly concert at SuperDeluxe, Tokyo. While the trios two previous double LP releases featured sprawling, side-long performances, the music here is presented in six shorter pieces, each one displaying a different side of the trios interactions, from holy minimalism to cave-man rock. The record begins with the trio joined by special guests Charlemagne Palestine and Eiko Ishibashi, conjuring ghostly tones from wine glasses as an accompaniment to Hainos angelic vocals. This 10-minute piece, which moves from near silence and the sound of onstage footsteps to a stunning passage of clean guitar work from Haino, is steeped in the same mysterious atmospherics as Hainos great folk-drone project, Nijumu. When Haino turns to the flute on the LPs second track, a performance that clearly demonstrates the importance of the special concept of space and silence (ma) that Haino has developed from traditional Japanese aesthetics, ORourke and Ambarchi transform into the delicate and probing rhythm section of a classic 70s fusion side. When the trio returns to the crushing free-rock of their last two records, ORourkes heavily effected bass rolling alongside Ambarchis tumbling rhythms as Hainos guitar squeals and slashes above them, their performances display a new purposefulness and concision. Now truly operating as a band after a number of years of playing together, the pieces here feel like instant rocks songs -- ORourke and Ambarchi instantly locking into solid riffs over which Haino alternates between jarring no-wave chords, intense soloing and his signature vocalizations. When the trio slow down and stretch out, the rhythm section plods like an abstracted Crazy Horse on the brink of collapse, and Haino elicits long, mournful solos reminiscent of the first classic Fushitsusha double live LP. Perhaps more accessible than the trios previous recordings because of its range and concision, Now While Its Still Warm... exudes the dark, alien quality of Hainos greatest recordings and testifies to the strength of the musical bond that has developed between these three players." -Francis Plagne, Jan 2013.

""Begun as a one-off collaboration in 2009, the trio of Keiji Haino, Jim ORourke and Oren Ambarchi has now become a solid working group, refining its craft through a series of annual concerts at Tokyos legendary SuperDeluxe. Much of their recorded work has focused on their intense, ritualistic take on the rock power trio of electric guitar, bass and drums. Presenting the entire first set of the trios March 2013 concert at SuperDeluxe (the second set will follow on Black Truffle later this year), Only Wanting to Melt Beautifully Away Is It a Lack of Contentment That Stirs Affection for Those Things Said to Be as of Yet Unseen is their fifth release and blows the instrumental palette wide open for a single continuous piece focused on acoustic strings, synth, flute and percussion. Featuring one of Hainos most delicate and moving recorded vocal performances, the opening section of the record takes the form of a spare duet between ORourkes 12-string acoustic guitar and Hainos kantele (a Finnish variant of the dulcimer), behind which Ambarchi provides a hovering backdrop of wine glass tones. While on previous releases the listener has often sensed that Haino was firmly in the drivers seat, here ORourke takes center stage with an acoustic guitar performance that takes the lyricism of John Abercrombie or Ralph Towner and refracts it through the free improvisation tradition of his mentors Derek Bailey and Henry Kaiser. The atmosphere of meditative, abstracted song is reminiscent of some of Hainos greatest recordings, such as the legendary Live in the First Year of the Heisei volumes recorded with Kan Mikami. After this stunningly beautiful opening sequence, the performance moves organically through a number of episodes, including a dramatic central passage in which Haino moves to synth and drum machine, crafting a current of raw electricity that unfurls slowly over the gently pulsing foundations of Ambarchis cymbals and builds to heights of manic intensity. When Haino later turns to wooden flute, Ambarchi answers him with nimble hand-drummed percussion in a passage that calls to mind Don Cherrys liberated combination of free-jazz improvisation and non-Western musics. The trios move away from the power trio dynamic bespeaks a risk-taking and questing spirit that refuses to be satisfied with repeating past glories, and yet the organic, immersive flow of this single improvisation attests to the intuitive bond that has formed between them over the last five years. Exuding the signature mystery and emotion of Hainos greatest works, this release is perhaps the strongest statement yet from this acclaimed trio, and holds out a tantalizing promise for everyone hooked on their continuing exploration of those things said to be as of yet unseen. --Francis Plagne; Design by Stephen OMalley with high quality live shots by Ujin Matsuo and stunning artwork by Norwegian noise legend Lasse Marhaug." - Black Truffle.

Price: $21.00
"At this point, it can justifiably be said that Keiji Haino, Jim ORourke and Oren Ambarchi have become one of the leading groups in experimental music. This, their sixth release, presents the entire second set of the trios March 2013 concert at SuperDeluxe (the first set is available on Black Truffle as Only Wanting to Melt Beautifully Away Is It a Lack of Contentment That Stirs Affection for Those Things Said to Be as of Yet Unseen). While the first set of the evening saw the trio branching out into new instrumental configurations, here they return to their signature line-up of guitar, bass and drums. The LP begins abruptly, with one of the finest performances by the trio captured on record thus far already in full swing. Throughout the course of this 12-minute piece, ORourke and Ambarchi lay down a thudding, meterless pulse, the impossible midway point of Milford Graves and motorik Krautrock, over which Haino unfurls a number of distinct strategies developed in his work since the 1980s: formless blurs of reverb-drenched guitar noise, looped pointillist fragments and wandering, dissonant lines obscured in clouds of distortion. Continuing Hainos habit of naming albums with phrases that seem to obliquely comment on the music they contain, it could definitely be said that this is music made by three people determined to completely exhaust every bit of this body theyve been given. Showing the trio at new heights, this track carries on in the spirit of some of Hainos greatest work: music made with the ingredients of rock that somehow manages to sidestep all of its forms and traditions while retaining and amplifying its fundamental power. If this track alone lays to rest concerns about whether the trio has exhausted the guitar/bass/drums format, the remainder of the record serves as a demonstration of the multitude of possibilities still available for their continued exploration. The three are now so in-tune with one another that almost anything can be integrated into their improvisations: in the slow-burning second piece, ORourkes heavily effected bass wanders from anti-music thuds to an almost funky passage with Ambarchi sounding not unlike Buddy Miles circa Hendrixs Band of Gypsys -- it bespeaks the hours of listening to fusion and classic rock that continue to form an important part of ORourke and Ambarchis musical personalities. The final piece is a continuous side-long performance that moves through a number of discrete episodes, from vocal and flute solos by Haino delicately accompanied by ORourkes sparse bass and Ambarchis sizzling cymbals, to a final stumbling dirge over which Haino unleashes a stunning torrent of in-the-red guitar skree." --Francis Plagne.

Thats right: nothing! Just a puddle of restless throbbing poop in different colours. The elephant turns out to be a puddle as well and the sounds youre hearing are all on the most psychedelic Hair Police LP so far!

Title: Mercurial Rites
Format: LP
Label: Type
Country: UK
Price: $21.00
"Working tirelessly at their craft since 2001, Hair Police are survivors of the rapidly-dissolving U.S. noise scene. Made up of Mike Connelly (aka Failing Lights), Robert Beatty (aka Three Legged Race) and Trevor Tremaine -- the three Midwesterners have amassed quite a catalog between them, but somehow always hit hardest when they fuse their talents and work together. Mercurial Rites is the trios first proper full-length since 2008s Certainty of Swarms, and in typically obstinate form doesnt pander to the noise scenes mass exodus towards the dancefloor. Instead, the record is as dirt-sodden and gruesome as the band has ever sounded, and marks an evolution in industrial noise without straying far from their original intentions. Theyve always been a consistent band, but Mercurial Rites does a pronounced job in distilling the raw energy of their defining early LP Obedience Cuts and fusing it with the disturbing soundscapes of later records Drawn Dread and Prescribed Burning. Tape-saturated bells and gongs push up awkwardly against pounding, funereal percussion and the kind of disembodied screams we last heard on 80s-era Whitehouse sides, and while the result might terrify some, it re-affirms what made the noise scene so alluring in the first place. Its an unsettling, punishing sound that revels in its own abstraction, yet every clank is meticulously placed, every screech of feedback so pointed that at times you forget the layers of distortion and fog altogether. Were simply left with sparse vignettes of darkness, and in the empty silence in-between the blasts of synthesizer or white noise, theres more horror than you could possibly imagine. Cut at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin." -Type.

Both CDs are multi-track recording with analog tape machines without using any digital recording/mixing technique.

"you must live in tokyo to be able to follow the immense output of the soundburrier that is MASAYA NAKAHARA, aka VIOLENT ONSEN GEISHA, most of his work doesnt make it out of Satou Dans Tatsunoya bar in Shinjuku, not because noone wants it, just because the tokyo noise scene seems to gather there late at night to forefil their pork anus - chicken paw needs, and NAKAHARAs last 40 cdrs were the ideal soundtracks for this ritual. the old skool dead pan electronics, plunderphonics, parodies, noise blasts and synth madness that VIOLENT ONSEN GEISHA or HAIR STYLISTICS released, have always been accompanied by titles and artwork that made you doubt if it was even necessary to listen or look at anything else, much like the lafms box on rrr now that i think of it. bullshit of course, like every record announcement! When i visited Tokyo in January i accidentally met Nakahara in a recordstore, we mainly communicated in sign language but he did remember that i asked him to do a record some years before, he sign languaged that he was bad with sending stuff in the mail and asked how many days i would stay in Tokyo, i made the rather simple hand gesture of putting 3 fingers in the air, which he replied to with the words "A side tommorow". As accidentally, i bump into him again the next day carrying around the A side in his pocket, all made on that day with a heavy flu, which is hearable on the lp, a stripped down heavy dim sum of collaged tapes, mini electronics, coughs, sneezes, and ants! his big synths etc were all locked up somewhere. "B SIDE ON MONDAY", which was the day i left, the legend goes that Tokyo airport had to call my name on the speakers as Nakahara brought the master to the airport, seriously a minute before my plane left to belgium again that monday. the cover design and insert was a trio work of Nakahara Masaya, Tomoo Gokita and Dennis Tyfus. this record is limited to 300 copies." -Ultra Eczema

"Completely obscure private press from central Massachusetts, 1979. Candles Glow was recorded predominantly in the attic of an old farm house in northern New Hampshire. This is the same little corner of the world where Bobb Trimble made two of the best psych records ever, also around 1980. This albums not as out-there as Bobbs, but its completely unknown as far as you can tell and several tracks have got a nice rural psych feel with great, garage-y guitar work from Richard Thyng, as evidenced on "Morning Bird." Neil Youngs definitely an influence here, and the rest of the record is a lot mellower, with a few solo downer-folk numbers by Carl Hakansson and one really spooky and somber kind of chanted mantra a cappella track "Alone They Ride," credited to The Thyng-Hakansson Chorus." -Riverman

"Three albums in, Steven R. Smiths new Hala Strana project has delivered its first masterpiece. Following his first two full-lengths from last year (Hala Strana on Emperor Jones and Fielding on Jewelled Antler) comes These Villages, a further culmination of Smiths interest in Eastern European folk music. Smiths original compositions are peppered with interpretations of traditional songs, presenting the collision of his musical interests throughout his rather prolific career over the past decade. Built upon layers of sustained drone & delicately plucked and bowed strings, These Villages creates a seemless, almost raga-like environment, with quiet-loud dynamics aplenty. Its a dark record, a definite work of beauty, and a perfect soundtrack for autumns changing leaves and howling winds." - Soft Abuse.

Though hinted at on their previous Siltbreeze effort; this record is not a departure from their trademark psychedelic excursions but an evolution from their bedroom recordings, allowing their sound to be captured in a more fully realized dynamic staging. Carefully sculpting not only the inherent energies of the compositions but also drawing every audible element into the fold whether it be a slow drawn violin scrap, fluttering percussion or the slow echo of a vintage Ampeg Amplifier. This record exemplifies the kind of precision and subtle craftsmanship that exemplifies the honing of their abilities." - Social Registry. CD also available.

"Hallelujahs were a band led by Shinji Shibayama, during the mid-eighties. This was their sole album, released in 1986 in an edition of 300 on Shibayamas fledgling ORG Records label. ORG went on to release some great records by Maher Shalal Hash Baz, Reiko Kudo and Love Beach (Shibayamas current dream-pop psych band). Musically, pop psych is about as close as Im going to want to get to a description of what they do. Theres something about this record thats hard to get a grip on. It seems to float on layers of melody rather than rhythm, and in places it has an incomparable start of autumn melancholic atmosphere. Subtle, but a grower if you give it enough time. Part of yet another invisible Japanese scene." - Alan Cummings. Highly recommended!

"TOM LECKY stacks and layers acoustic, electric and lap steel guitars, delivering a new kind of studio improvisation-spontaneously made, yet feeling composed, gliding from harmonious to dissonant. MIE Musics vinyl reissue of his debut CD (Hundred Acre 2012) sweetens the deal with A Hem of Evening: six interlocking acoustic pieces that extend the structural themes of The Unions central acoustic tracks. Lecky again works with a range of overlapping improvisations and twisted melodic weavings, but here within a more naked and spare atmosphere. The Union is structured by continually stacking great density of sound and involutions, but A Hem of Evening works with a different geometry. In the words of Fluid Radios Andy Gillham, "A Hem of Evening shows "a canny ability to build meaningful musical structure from free-form composition." Includes a book of prose poems and photographs." -MIE.

"Since 2010s King Felix and into last years highly lauded Hour Logic, Laurel Halo has developed a self-contained take on electronic music, collapsing the boundaries between ambient, pop, synthetic psychedelia, dub and the techno music of her Midwest roots. Fixed stylistic territories fold in on themselves, time quickens--her music is meant for transit, body listening and loud soundsystems. Quarantine, her debut album and first release on Hyperdub, is her most focused and evolved recording yet. This is an album of transporting songs, various altitude shifts via effecting pop-concrete, built on a rich synthesis of intuitive but exacting electronic abstraction, bass pulse and heartfelt songwriting. Like her previous releases, Quarantine slams ambient suspension and disorienting detail up against each other. The 12 songs here operate as complex vacuums, airborne harmony and movement met with inci-dental noise and sub bass pressure, sample details and synth lines as trails across a mutilated sonic topography." -Hyperdub.

Title: Hamana
Format: LP
Label: World In Sound
Country: Germany
Price: $38.00
"Hamanas debut album recorded in 1974, was issued on the local Phoenix label, Canyon Records. To most of the 60s psychedelic rock/folk fans this is almost an unknown album, original pressings seem to have disappeared, only a few copies are known in collectors hands. Bruce Hamana, a native American, is a member of the Indian Hopi Tribe and went in 1969 to college near San Francisco to live in the white mans world. Instead of traditional native American themes he felt like writing modern, revolutionary, contemporary music -- the result you hear on this album is powerful and melodic, and expresses perfectly the sunny California peace, love & freedom feeling, but also contains a social-critical message.One of these days everything is gonna change, things you take for granted will be taken away from you. The music itself is emotive with strong vocals, lots of Westcoast psychedelic guitar flashes, a bit garage feeling but also loner folk style with native American elements. The appeal of this album reminds of Quicksilver Messenger Service, The Byrds, X.I.T, Neil Young, Buffalo Springfield, Garrett Lund. Near unbelievable that on these recordings all instruments, bass, guitars, vocals and drums have been played by Hamana himself, to get overdubbed and to become finally a tasty and atmospheric stereo acoustic/electric mix." - World In Sound.

“A few years ago we were lucky to be allowed to reissue some of Peter Michael Hamel works. Two LPs by Between (And The Waters Opened - now deleted - and Einstieg -a few copies still available) and the great Hamel 2LP (also deleted!) joined the Wah Wah catalogue. We would have wanted to go for the Voice Of The Silence too, an now we have finally got the kind permission to go for it.
Here is a much needed reissue of the sought after second LP by Peter Michael Hamel, originally released on the collectable Vertigo label in 1973. Hamels experimentation with meditative and minimalist sounds is a further field of exploration for those into the likes of Terry Riley, LaMonte Young, Popol Vuh, Taj Mahal Travellers or Deuter - and will also appeal to those with interest in ambient and meditation musics.
From "A Few Thoughts on Composer PMH" by Terry Riley: "...Peters heart did not seem to be aligned alone with the post Webern traditions that had emerged so prevalently in Germany. His sensibilities were attracted more to American minimalism and Indian music and to some degree Rock and Jazz. In this sense he stands apart in the field of modern music of Germany. He has recognized the vast importance of improvisation and being in the moment in music performance. He realizes the importance of experimentation and of finding new ways to notate his ideas. However, his music is at the same time rooted in the great German tradition and today he is recognized as a major figure whose compositions have greatly enriched the development of 20th and 21st century."
Originally released in Vertigo in 1973, the Wah Wah reissue will come housed in a textured sleeve reproducing the original artwork, remastered sound, and feature an insert with photos and liner notes. Limited edition of only 500 copies.” - Wah Wah.

Title: Canciones de Cadaques
Format: Double 7"
Label: Primary Information
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
Reissue of the 1976 release on Edition Hansjörg Mayer. Edition of 500. “Canciones de Cadaques is a musical collaboration between Dieter Roth and Richard Hamilton that was originally published by Hansjörg Mayer in 1976. It takes the form of a double 45 record and features the two artists alternately performing on vocals and guitar, with assistance from a Cadaqués dog named Chispas Luis, who periodically takes over vocal duties with a particularly sharp bark. This facsimile edition reproduces the originals gatefold design, and features eight color photographs of the recording session taken by Rita Donagh. Roth and Hamilton worked together from 1961 to 1998 and over this time, produced several projects across many mediums. At the time of the recording, the artists were working together in Cadaqués, Spain, where they also produced a series of drawings and paintings, which was accompanied by a drawing or painting that acted as a certificate to the original work. Both artists worked with music and sound, though in different capacities. Roth produced sounds works and created music throughout much of his life. He also ran a record label, Roths Verlag, that released his and other artists works in the 70s and 80s. Hamilton was actively engaged with music through his work, most notable of which was his design for the Beatles White Album cover. Dieter Roth (1930-1998) was a prolific German-Swiss artist whose diverse works included sculpture, painting, design, performances, books, poetry, and printmaking that referenced literature, music, history, and his own life. Roth challenged conventions of art by merging different media and utilizing materials that decayed over time. He frequently produced artists books, and his groundbreaking publications remain monumental and influential. Richard Hamilton (1922-2011) was an English pioneer of Pop Art. His paintings, installations, collages, and prints combined his interest in high and low culture through consumer goods, commercial design, references to other artworks, and celebrities. Throughout his career, Hamilton also made overtly political works, mostly centered on his reactions to British politics.” - Primary Information

Title: Pieces For Kohn/Formal & Informal Music
Format: Double CD
Label: Kvist
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"Kvist Records presents this 2CD release, reissuing out-of-print works originally released on the artists own Somnath label. Although Tom Hamiltons more recent CDs (London Fix, Off-Hour Wait State, and Shadow Machine) are well known to fans of electronic music and reviewers alike, his earlier LP recordings became known as underground classics to the collectors of independent music from that era. This 2CD set was made from the original master tapes, and brings to light some of the best work of Hamiltons highly prolific St. Louis years, starting decades before he became involved with musical life in downtown New York. In the 1970s, Hamilton was working in semi-isolation, though connected to a burgeoning arts scene in St. Louis, and developing his idiosyncratic techniques with the ARP and Serge modular analog synthesizers of that era. The first CD, Pieces For Kohn, is comprised of four multi-layered electronic pieces, musical responses to four paintings by artist Bill Kohn. The second CD, Formal & Informal Music, contains the title piece Formal & Informal Music (1980), and Crimson Sterling (1973) -- both featuring improvisations by JD Parran, woodwinds, Rich ODonnell, percussion, and Hamilton on analog synthesizers. The music on these CDs establish some of Hamiltons most prominent style characteristics: clouds of fast pitches hinting at pointillistic and kinetic imagery; suggestions of tonality without real resolution; and highly-charged rhythms contributing to intricate textures -- sometimes existing on their own, sometimes offering accompaniment to improvising soloists." - Kvist.

"2014 release. Shadoks Music present a reissue of Hamlets only album Linnanherra (1977). Hamlet formed as Survival in 1973 and played many concerts in Finland. The highlight for the band was during in 1977 when the small town country boys got to make their first album, Linnanherra. They were booked at the best studio in Finland, Finnvox in Helsinki, together with the British sound technician Ian Churches. The producer wanted them to change their names to Hamlet for a better sale point (given the new outfit on the cover). The band never agreed but the Discovox label released the album under the new name with a new medieval outfit on the cover. This extremely rare Finnish progressive rock album was later withdrawn by the label. Linnanherra was the only album the band recorded. The music might go in a similar direction that Finnish Session, heavy psych progressive rock, heavy lead guitars all over, great songs and very well produced. Personnel: Jouko Nykter - vocals; Hannu Nykter - guitar, vocals; Jouni Limingoja - bass, vocals; Harri Kannel - guitar; Kalle Kähkönen - drums.

Title: I Love You, Please Love Me Too
Format: LP
Label: Pan
Country: UK
Price: $27.00
"With I Love You, Please Love Me Too, Joseph Hammer continues his journey into playful yet heavily focused idiot-savant infinite psychedelic inertia. Utilizing consumer audio technology and 20th century detritus, Hammer lovingly decodes his passion for mid-century sci-fi and AM radio stations beyond all point of recognition like a snake charmer. Multi-dimensional audio collage techniques to a freeform and completely unorthodox plunderphonic hypnosis. Baked devotionals for tape loop minds. Joseph Hammer, a sound artist from Los Angeles, has actively created experimental works since 1980 as a member of the LAFMS collective. His practice draws on the complexities of the process of listening and playing, reflecting on the role of the audience versus the performer, and uses music as it influences our notion of time, memory and intimacy as the basis for improvisation and abstraction. In various collaborations, solo, and as a founding member of the trio Solid Eye along with several other projects (Joe & Joe, Dinosaurs With Horns, Dimmer, Points of Friction), Hammer has performed widely and is an influential contributor to the Los Angeles underground scene. The LP is mastered by Rashad Becker at D&M, in a limited edition of 330 hand-numbered copies, pressed on 140g vinyl and comes in a poly-lined inner sleeve. It is packaged in a pro-press jacket, which is itself housed in a two-tone silkscreened PVC sleeve with interweaving geometric designs. All artwork by Kathryn Politis and Bill Kouligas." -Pan.

Price: $16.00
"I dont care how many goddamn cute hobo bands there are out there right now. Not two runny shits. Theres something HANK IV knows that few other current of interest bands realize, and its a painfully simple thing: guitars were meant to sound like this, not that (pick something). Thats as plainly as it can be put. This is twin-guitar punk rock in a class of its own, driving more than dueling and hot-sauce-free. III is Hank Babys third and finest album yet and they are, in short, a band whose every move is worthy of your utmost attention. For this record (their second for Siltbreeze), Thee Hanks opted to spend zero dollars and buried themselves deep inside their very own Shill Building studio for a good, long while. Sightings became scarce. Promises of work being done were made but who really knew what was going on? To be fair, The Shill has its fair share of distractions. Imagine Platos Retreat, except like a basement in the Tenderloin. Anyway, the result of their self-imposed exile is this album bearing the aroma of fuck you coupled with a faint flutter of fuck me. Its eight songs in 25 minutes of loud, angry, intelligent, rock n roll punk and its from San Francisco. Beyond that, the rhythms actually have a rhythm-a loud, all-rock rhythm, in fact. Its shocking and practically akin to reinventing the wheel round these un-rocking parts. Great-and now the worldll probably explode. Do I gotta pick a cut to exalt? Down in the Dumps springs forth. Hopefully the punks follow suit."-Mitch Cardwell . Includes free digital download coupon and insert.

Title: Refuge In Genre
Format: LP
Label: Siltbreeze
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"A decidedly meaner, sharper, and more pummeling affair than their critically acclaimed debut, Hank IVs second album, Refuge in Genre, sports eleven songs in 30 scorched-earth minutes. No visit to the lo-fi or "shit-gaze" Quonset huts this, Refuge in Genre was recorded in shattering hi-fidelity by Tim Green (The Fucking Champs) and mastered by Bob Weston (Shellac). The rollicking San Francisco quintet has been in the crosshairs of the Siltbreeze hunting rifle since just after the release of their debut LP, Third Person Shooter, was (Hook or Crook, 2006). Attempts to release their Dirty Poncho 7-inch were squashed (the honor went to Plastic Idol) so Siltbreeze did what any jilted paramour would: decided to get even. The sound of Hank IV is a bit too wily and scrambled to pigeonhole as any one type of honk. Forward thinkers might tag em as panic-skiffle, combining the cunning and menace of compadres such as Thomas Jefferson Slave Apartments or Country Teasers, with a dual guitar attack that nods toward the Bailey / Kuepper-era Saints as much as those dudes looked at Smith / Kramer for their nascent moves. Through all this stutter and pummel, vocalist Bob McDonald (formerly of Denver hardcore icons Bum Kon) doesnt throw caution to the wind so much as atomize it. If a shattered leg cant keep this herc from heralding the apocalypse, do you think your tender widdle ears have a chance? Not likely, bub. San Francisco quintet Hank IV has no relation whatsoever to the Hank Williams clan. Their hard-charging and visceral dual-guitar rock punk has been likened to "Crime meets Viletones meets Styrenes punk" (Z-Gun Magazine) and by WFMUs DJ Terre T as "a sick combination of Volcano Suns and Blue Cheer and Chain Gang!" Third Person Shooter was called "one of 2006s top punk albums" by Maximum Rockandroll, "Best of 2006" by Terminal Boredom, #2 album of 2006 by WFMU DJ Evan Funk Davies, and the #8 album of 2006 by Terre T. The band has played twice at SXSW, including 2008 for the WFMU 50th anniversary showcase, and performed at Gonerfest IV in Memphis in 2007." - Siltbreeze.

Title: Fish

Price: $21.00
"Latest in a very long line of guitar and drums duo releases from Bailey, encompassing sessions with Han Bennink, Jamie Muir, Andrea Centazzo, John Stevens, Cyro Baptista, Tony Oxley, Susie Ibarra, Eddie Prevost, and probably several more that have slipped my mind. This is his first record with Japanese powerhouse drummer Shoji Hano, recorded at Moat Studios in London in June 2000. Hano is best known outside of Japan for his brief tenure as drummer in speedfreak rock band High Rise. But he has had an even lengthier career as an improv drummer, with his own roster of groups (including the Polybreath Percussion Band, as documented on PSFD-92) and with the likes of Peter Brotzmann and William Parker. This session with Bailey was the realisation of a long-held dream for Hano, and he was fully psyched up for the date. Baileys playing is squarely in his recent style, centering around dry note clutches and some gorgeously controlled feedback swells. Hanos drumming here sacrifices his exemplary rock motion in favour of a more pulse orientated approach. He brings a weighty presence to his work on toms especially, the result of years of rigorous training in locating the spiritual through the physical. The results are pleasingly heavy, with a density of detail that repays high-volume playback. Four tracks, two of them just under the twenty minute mark, the other two hovering around five or six minutes. Each one named after a species of fish. Very fetching picture of a monkfish on the cover, too." - Alan Cummings.

"Im getting majorly sore cheeks from grinning and top tapping to these freewheelin bung pop gems from Sachsen, Germany, while being simultaneously amazed at how they explode in rich technicolour with such a full sound - fried guitar licks, cheery vocal squeaks and twinkling xylophone runs - but are largely the work of one guy named Oliver Scharf. I found Oliver through his Zac Efron-channeling solo project Male Models, but soon learnt it was just "a one afternoon project" - and that his other moniker Hanoi Janes will be used for all future musical forays, along with a couple of pals banging some drums from time to time." -Rose Quartz.

Label: Captured Tracks
Country: USA

"With the obvious homage the name implies, youd expect Hanoi Janes to be a group of riot grrrl angnsty types, displaced in time by about 20 odd years. Having taken on the nickname given to Jane Fonda in the 70s because of her anti-war stance on Vietnam, these girls would be all bent up about, well you know, stuff. Youd expect that, but youd be wrong. It is in fact primarily the work of one guy from Sachen, Germany �?? Oliver Scharf. But then Hanoi Janes album, Year of Panic, is able to inspire all kinds of misconceptions. Name of the band aside, would you expect a German guy (whos a bit handy with an eight-track) to produce a series of beautifully lo-fi, sub two-minute, surf-pop tracks, full of buzzing guitar and bubblegum spirit. Maybe �?? maybe not. But thats just what Scharf has done. The sound is distinctly garage, reminiscent of a 70s surf sound, and like The 5. 6. 7. 8s, Hanoi Janes are able to launch into the genre with the luxury of being removed from the scene itself. Tracks like opener, The Boys Are Out and Beach Kids are unashamedly infectious, utilising catchy hooks, hand claps and the odd Ooo ooo ooo to great effect. The production is fuzzy, but that only adds to the overall charm of the album. Because charming is what it is, as Hanoi Janes have packed Year of Panic with some real gems. Summer of Panic offers something tinted with psychedelic sounds; Our Lives could have been an early track by The Strokes had they been influenced by the Californian sun rather than the New York shadows; Good Bone is a track which can only be performed if there are several oversized surf-boards nearby. Year of Panic is lo-fi, scuzzy garage surf-pop at its finest and it deserves to be the sound-track of your summer" -Bowlegs.

Features Al, Lisa Cieslik, Georg (ist Warhol!), Suzanne Zierold, Dieter Hebben, Peter Kleinertz, Hanjo S., Nicole Hundertmark, and others. Figures like Gerard Malanga, Angus MacLise, Valerie Solanas, Warhol, and others are roasted/honored (the tone is always a little hard to suss) in the form of chants like Long Live Andy Panda, etc... Hansen was one of the 14 Classic Fluxus Folks whose most well known pieces such as "Piano Drop" are eclipsed historically by the 2 generations removed betwixt himself and Beck Hansen, a quirky & dubiously Fluxus-aligned pop star (couplets like the sales climb high through the garbage pail sky/like a giant dildo crushing the sun seem the only proof of this) of global renown with whom Al shared an exhibition (and a lovely coffee table gallery edition) titled Playing with Matches. Eleven-minute-and-sixteen-second program (one track) leaves you wanting more, but youll need a few plays for it all to sink in anyways so stop complaining.

"2013 repress. Reissue of what was the first ever release on Silence, initially issued in 1970. This was also the first Bo Hansson album, the Swedish legend known to be one of the earliest to place "space music". Produced as a tribute to the Tolkien trilogy, this is stunning instrumental psychedelic music, with plush atmospherics -- Dont Fear The Hobbit! This version is the original Swedish titled version, with one bonus track ("Tidiga skisser Från Midgård"); there is also an English-titled version with different bonus tracks. This is a digitally remastered issue from 2001. Performed by: Bo Hansson (Organs, guitar, moog, bass), Rune Carlsson (drums, congas), Gunnar Bergsten (saxophone), Sten Bergman (flute). "Lord of the Rings was released late in the fall of 1970 and became an immediate success. Bo himself was in the midst of a very creative period, new melodies were constantly popping up in his head, so when Lord of the Rings finally got released in other countries there were already three more tracks added compared to the first Swedish issue. In the encyclopedia Guide to Progressive Rock, Bo Hansson is mentioned with reverence and respect. He is the first to play space music, he is a precursor to the French prog-celebrities Gong and English Henry Cow, and contemporary style-formers as Genesis and Yes. Bo Hansson is an innovator in the most noble sense of the word."" -Silence.

The energy and humor of early releases remains; that band you may have loved before has grown even stronger and more potent, its songs now monuments to individualism, to longing, to happier endings resulting from imperfect circumstances. Binding folk, indie rock and pop forms together is easy enough; its what this band does with them, how it builds its sentiments and bursts preconceptions, that put them in a place where these musicians can rest, comfortably above and apart from almost every band working in this same terrain today. Were hearing the trippiest moments of the Beatles, Lindsey Buckingham at the peaks he reached on Tusk, and both poles of American post-punk songwriting royalty, Camper Van Beethoven at one end and Thinking Fellers Union Local 282 at the other." - Mexican Summer.

"Released in foreshortened single LP format back in 2010, the new edition of this masterpiece of Brattleboro form manipulation is allowed to breathe across two full long-players, and were all a lot better off for it. Allowed to sprawl across a couple of albums, a booklet of text and a download card of yet another album, Happy Jawbone Family Band achieve a rare freedom here, assembling a complete imaginary universe that combines surrealist wordplay with woozy Dunedin-style form-grabs. Composed of seven (or so) people (it changes with the weather), the band seems capable of almost anything. At one moment they can be doing what sounds to be a flamenco version of the Germs "Lexicon Devil" then turn on a dime and resemble the Terminals doing one of their death-chug-sea chanteys. Its weird, this Brattleboro thing. All the bands there sound pretty different from one another, but they all sound like they smoke cheeb as though it were legal. There is a stoner logic to Complete Hotel thats so damn wonderful itll just about suck yr clothes off. As was demonstrated to the world on their Mexican Summer comp (which was in print for what? three hours?) HJFB put songs together in a way that pleases them, and damn the torpedoes. You can hear traces of absolutely anything inside their sound -- Four Seasons, Van Dyke Parks, Dave Davies, Plagal Grind -- but their mutational heat is so heavy, after youve dug a few notes you realize it could never be anyone but them. Complete Hotel Double Tragedy is the first time HJFB have gotten a chance to expand in all directions at the same time. And it is so cool, youll grow a new tit. We promise! Edition of 600.

Country: USA

"U.Ks Happy Refugees never fit in with the scene of early 80s British pop music and they knew it. They knew it when they wrote "as far as music is concerned it is almost an overwhelming embarrassment to be associated with it in any way"� on the back sleeve of their first record. They knew it when they said "we play with a total disregard to a record buying public"� in one of their rare appearances in the press. In the liner notes to this compilation they acknowledge their self-fulfilling prophecy, "We received little recognition and we were reticent to try and find it. Enthusiasm was vulgar to some extent, the band seemed to sit outside everything else that was going on, which of course is a good thing." The music they wrote and self-released can only be described as rock-and-roll. They liked Iggy and the Stooges and John Cale. They liked Richard Hell and the Fall. It was acceptable to like Joy Division, "but slavish enthusiasm was considered spooky and weird." What they hated was heavy metal, goths, "long songs played in strange time signatures by fey bands with long hair" and all the bland music as the post-punk scene gave way to fashion bands aiming for the charts. That first record sleeve made their intentions clear; "I hope Happy Refugees can breathe a breath of fresh air with this record, not just because of the songs but also because it is no way produced with the infatuation of becoming a pop-star."� They wrote songs that were personal and honest. Production and musical chops were rough around the edges, but with 6 members at times, they had a full and layered sound. Scratchy guitars and incessant bass buoyed by a pounding piano created a post-punk jangle meets wall of sound bed for intensely raw songs about lost relationships and lost loved-ones. No matter how abrasive the sound gets, every song is filled with catchy and heartfelt hooks. Its hard to understand why a band this good didnt find a home on Rough Trade or the like. A few years earlier perhaps theyd fit in better with the great DIY bands like Desperate Bicycles and Swell Maps (not exactly rock stars themselves). A few years later they mightve been C86 superstars. As it was, they slipped through the new pop era with only a self-released 7"� and a mini LP to their name, and into cult legend. Return to Last Chance Saloon contains both the Last Chance Saloon mini-LP and the Warehouse Sound single as well as 3 unreleased demo recordings. This compilation also features a 16 page booklet and a download card including the LP and 7 alternate versions." - Acute.

Format: LP

Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"This expansive LP from Pittsburgh mainstays HARANGUE is a dreamwalk through the minds of its makers, replete with unexpected vistas from this quartet of piano, guitar, bass and drums. Opening with the taut bounce of "Wisteria," the band jumps off with brisk melancholy, weaving and unraveling the layers and hooks of this standout track. Wisteria is a defined aesthetic statement, the sound is fraught with false nostalgia for nature, for simpler times. "Uniformly Chaotic" turns on dimes, steadily driving through flowing melodies and subtly continual dynamic shifts. Harangues energetic piano and rhythm section pound while the guitar snakes in and out of contrapuntal bliss, hissing out reverb and fuzz like the Kinks Dave Davies, and countered with desperate lyrical themes suggesting Street Hassle-era Lou Reed. Side B continues Harangues sojourn with "The Valley," an epic trip of yearning through noir-ish shadows yielding to brilliant glimpses of sunlight through spring-reverb guitar texture and earth-rumbling, feedback-laden solos. The LPs closer "Whitewashed Wall" rides through the end of nights tunnel, using negative space like a magic marker. Talking deliverance and sounding dark before sunrise, the song sways between half-tempo slow dance and full-on haunt before the backbeat swings and ascends with a bubbling line of guitar triplets that bloom into grand sonic swaths--triumphant, immersive, nearly decadent, harkening back to an imaginary jam between George Gershwin and Pink Floyd in 75. Harangues lyrics sketch images of uncertain futures and abandon--a personal search for clarity, perhaps. But the album as a whole should end that search; it is a gem shining amidst static and snow." -Chicago Independent.

Title: Second Coming
Format: LP
Label: Guerssen
Country: Spain
Price: $24.00
"Unknown to most 60s/70s collectors until its discovery a few years ago, this is the beyond rare second album released by loner/downer folk legend Dave Bixby, recorded around 1969, the same year as his first one, the now-famous Ode To Quetzalcoatl. Musically, Second Coming is equally as good and very similar to the first one, but this time the recording took place in a professional studio, so the sound is improved. Bixby is joined by Brian MacInness on guitar, Sandy Johnson on vocals and Don DeGraaf on bass and production duties. Don was in fact leader of the, in the end, destructive religious cult known as "The Group" or "The Movement," of which Bixby and Brian were part of. The sound is more up-front and the songs are slightly optimistic compared to the ones on Ode To Quetzalcoatl, and theres plenty of acoustic 12-string raga guitars and harmony male/female vocals. The lyrics deal with cosmic imagery, psychedelics and religious/biblical references, but this goes much deeper than any Xian record youve ever heard -- titles such as "Cosmic Energy," "Time To Clear Your Mind," "Rainbow," and "Circus World" point towards some sort of New Age/post-Revelations utopian consciousness. Reissued for the first time under license from Dave Bixby himself, and carefully remastered from a clean vinyl (no master tapes exist) at Shadoks Music Studios. Includes an insert with extensive and detailed liner notes by Matvei Procak -- the guy who found Bixby in 2006 -- plus some rare pictures. Also includes a free mp3 download code." - Guerssen.

Title: Clean Tables Have To Be Burnt
Format: LP
Label: Minimal Wave
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"Minimal Wave is proud to present our 35th release, a full length LP release entitled “Clean Tables Have To Be Burnt” by UK legends Hard Corps, a band weve been long time admirers of. Aside from their releases on Survival and Polydor, Hard Corps gained some notoriety for their unique and uncompromising live shows throughout the 1980s. It was the juxtaposition between their hard edged industrial sound and the fragile and enigmatic vocals of French frontwoman Regine Fetet that created an unusual dichotomy, lending to their strength of character as a band and thus allowing them to stand out from the rest. A 12” white label, released by Survival Records, containing the hammering rhythmic attack of Dirty and the softer, melodic, pulse of Respirer (To Breathe) was circulated around Londons dance floors. In no time a wave of attention hit them and throughout 1984 and into 1985 they dominated the independent pop charts. John Peel championed them on his infamous late night Radio One show and they headlined at his ICA Rock Week in the Mall, London. By 1985 Hard Corps had signed with major label giants Polydor. This enabled the band to work with a couple of their favoured and respected producers, Martin Rushent (known mostly for his exceptional work with the Human League) and Depeche Mode producer and Mute Records supremo, Daniel Miller. These sessions provided the public with just one single due to the labels non-promotion, Je Suis Passee, a sweeping arrangement of breathtaking beauty, combining pumping sequences and sheer power of emotion of Regines voice. The band went on a major tour with The Cure in 1985 and Depeche Mode in 1988, before finally disintegrating. Now for the first time ever, rare unreleased versions of Hard Corps tracks from the 1980s have been remastered and are being made available. “Clean Tables Have To Be Burnt” is a 180 gram vinyl pressing limited to 999 copies with double sided inner sleeve featuring a beautiful group shot and all of Regines lyrics." -Minimal Wave.

"From Turkey, 1978. Edition of 500 numbered LPs, glossy heavy sleeve, 180 gram pressing, with insert. "This first album of the Turkish band Hardal (mustard) with the title Nasil? Ze Raman? (where from? where to?) was recorded in Turkey in 1979 by Sükrü Yüksel (guitar), Aydin Sencan (bass), Cahit Kukul (guitar) and Sedat Avci (drums). The band was only known by a very small insider-group, but those fans just adored Hardal. The secret of Hardals small popularity is that in 1979 the Turkish rock scene was comatose. Cem Karaca left to Germany, Erkin Koray moved to Canada, Edip Akbayram got stuck because of his political ambitions. Only Baris Mancho was still on the road. To start a new band was tough in Turkey. Hardal also recorded 2 albums later. The music is the best Turkish progressive underground you can think of. Filled with guitars, synth sounds, great Eastern vibe vocals and harmonies, pumping rhythms. As good as the best Koray tracks for sure. This album was never reissued before, so we are sort of proud to present it to most people for the first time." -Shadoks

Compounded by the infusion of collaged audio sourced from VINE, this tape draws a thick line of lipstick in the sand between the classic strategy of avant-punk cabaret of Die Todliche Doris and the tumbling spokenword of Disband.

"The third in composer and artist Brian Harnettys series of recording projects stemming from the Berea College Appalachian Sound Archives, Rawhead & Bloodybones combines samples of music and folk tales with live instruments. The historic archival recordings of children recounting folk tales were made by Leonard Roberts in the 1940s and 50s. The combination of the childrens youthful voices and the often gruesome stories they tell offers a striking and dramatic contrast. These recordings, along with other archival samples from Berea, are woven into a larger musical world, with additional instrumental parts added as a counterpoint to the stories. Working closely with archivists, historians, musicians, and the families of those sampled, Rawhead & Bloodybones respectfully re-contextualizes traditional music and folk tales into a unique, beautiful, playful, and haunting whole. Six-panel foldout case." - Dust-to-Digital.

"When BRIAN HARNETTY was commissioned to work with the Sun Ra/El Saturn archives in Chicago, his goal was to develop a series of conversations with SUN RA through the many recordings in the collection. On one level, the resulting pieces combine these diverse materials to create a sonic collage. On another level, Harnetty uses these elements to reveal multi-layered stories, drawing out the many connections and complexities of the Sun Ra archives. For this 7-inch single, entitled "The Sociophonic Key," Harnetty has created a stand-alone work drawn from "The Star Faced One," a 2010 sound installation at the Experimental Sound Studio in Chicago. Despite the variety of samples used many subtle relationships are heard--both literal and fantastic--from Sun Ra rehearsing a group of children fading into an answering machine, to the intensity of a gospel preacher alongside the Arkestras invitation to join them in outer space.

It is doubtful if this sonic process would have ever evolved beyond the animal stage suspended as it is in a fragile balance between sounding familiar to the nervous system and unfamiliar and alien. This process is wholly dependent upon the integrity of the system and its necessary environment -- an extermination program created by working multiple channels, reducing mixes, removing sections, adding segments, layering inversions under continual growths and constant changes, until we can no longer recognize the original source or process itself. A very limited unit of sound and image biologically activated to act as communicable dizziness existing in the past present and future when listening to it. Lets turn it on.

"Small Path Music was shot on location in Southeast Asia in 2010 with Laurent Jeanneau on his relentless quest to capture audio recordings of vanishing indigenous music from ethnic groups of this vast region. The documentary (shot over a period of eight months) takes us travelling with Laurent in the field through remote northern Laos and Yunnan Province of Southwest China and invites us into the world of the folk artists he explores. From shamanic rituals to love songs, historical epics to lamentations, his microphones document what he discovers there. Laurent tells us of the state he finds these artists in today, how this music speaks to him, and we learn what drives the urgency of his work. As perhaps the most committed and accomplished procurer of rare and threatened music from this part of the world, Laurent recounts experiences from a decade of recording in Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, and China, and we gauge his perspective on the musical traditions of the area. We see how he relates to them and how his work has led his life in new directions. Along this journey he met his wife, Tanding and together they established a recording label (Kink Gong) to release their field recordings. Sublime Frequencies is pleased to present this unique story shot by filmmaker David Harris about the man behind the Ethnic Minority Music album series. 56 minutes, 16:9 NTSC DVD all regions, English with Mandarin subtitles." - Sublime Frequencies.

Format: LP
Label: Vinyl-On-Demand
Country: Germany
Price: $22.00
Limited edition of 444. Includes hand-numbered certificate. "Tape Recordings 1975-1985 features work from Kevin Harrison. Kevin Harrisons music is guitar orientated. But treated and mutated. Harrison is no ordinary guitar hero: his playing shimmers like light reflected on water. His work is reminiscent of a cross between Brian Eno, Michael Rother and Eric Random. While in the ambient field, it balances a lot more in the direction of contemporary electronics and a heavier sound. Nevertheless, his influences are very clear. A minimal psychedelicist at heart, Harrisons is the music of the hypnotic state, of dream and trance. Its core is an obvious affection for the work of Terry Riley, Philip Glass, Kraftwerk and The Normal tempered with an awareness of oriental rhythms and harmonies which give the elemental electronics a warmer, human touch. With Harrisons deft handling his squeaks and buzzes, his synthesized loop tables and his drum machines "Inscrutably Obvious" seems like it will prove horribly inaccessible. But once properly investigated it offers a sparklingly seductive selection of tracks wholeheartedly recommended to anybody looking for entertainment from the avant-garde. Chas de Whalley on Harrison: "No guitar heroes next cause its Kevin Harrison. I could listen to his excellent stuff all night. What he does is guitar improvisations with the guitar put through lots of reel-to-reel echo units and other such things. This means he only has to fall over his guitar and it sounds good good good good. The result is similar to Fripp/Eno collaborations with layers of rejected guitar sounds. It sounds much better than I can be bothered to write it, if youre curious go and see him do his act." - Vinyl-On-Demand.

Format: Double LP
Label: Editions Mego
Country: Austria
Price: $29.00
"Editions Mego is happy to announce a vinyl reissue of the long out-of-print and impossibly rare final Harry Pussy album, the monumental Lets Build a Pussy. Originally released in 1998 after the band broke up, this has always been an elusive release. "You cannot buy this anywhere and you will never find one!!!" was what one writer exclaimed. Consisting of an hour-long piece of Bill Orcutt time-stretching a second of Adris Hoyos voice into a slow, shifting drone. A piece of music you will love or hate, with not much room for anything in between. As Alan Licht states in his liner notes: "Lets Build a Pussy is a requiem, of sorts; Adris opening one-second vocal noise has been variously termed a yelp or a shout, but I prefer to think of it as Bill and Adris mutual last gasp, a band death-rattle. Put in a computer program, Adris protracted utterance becomes, almost literally, the ghost in the machine. Lets Build... is something of a late 90s audio inheritor of 19th-century spirit photography. Paradoxically functioning as both Harry Pussys curtain call and final act, Lets Build a Pussy is an altogether unique past-tense statement from a band whose members were not immediately going on to solo careers or to other bands." Bill Orcutt (Mouse), Adris Hoyos (Mouth). Available only in this format. Cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates and Mastering, Berlin, June 2012. Housed in a gatefold sleeve." -Editions Mego.

"Harry Pussy emerged out of the Florida swamps in 1993. Formed by Adris Hoyos and Bill Orcutt, the duo became legendary for their volatile live shows, which often devolved into violent clashes with audience members. Obliterating the lines between hardcore, noise and free jazz, the unclassifiable Harry Pussy were at once all of these things and none of them. Originally released on Siltbreeze, their self-titled debut album reveals an antagonistic and visceral approach to music: Hoyos self-taught, wild-style drums and shrouded screams tangling with Orcutts high-tension blues guitar. As David Keenan writes in the liner notes, “Harry Pussy played at such a heightened speed-of-thought climactic future- primitive peak that they outstripped technique so completely that people thought they couldnt actually play at all.” From the opening blasts of “Youth Problem” to the spasmodic, electro-convulsive take on Kraftwerks “Showroom Dummies,” Harry Pussy is an absurd and devastating statement. Twenty-plus years later, rock n rolls collective ears are still ringing. This long out-of-print vinyl release is recommended for fans of The Dead C, Royal Trux and Mars." - Superior Viaduct.

His haunted vocal style is pitched somewhere between Jandek, Keiji Haino and a death-decadent torch singer, while his saxophone improvisations orbit the same lonely satellites as solo thinkers like Masayoshi Urabe, Arthur Doyle, Anthony Braxton and Kaoru Abe. Nerve-flaying blues from a player who has been there and back." -Le Weekend Festival.

"Debut album by a new improvisation group consisting of Hirotomo Hasegawa and Shizuo Uchida. Both have a leather-bound folder full of underground back-story -- Hasegawa was the lead singer of seminal early eighties Japanese punk/hardcore group Aburadako (Greasy Octopus), while Uchida was a long-term member of Hainos Nijiumu medieval dream-drone unit. The groups instrumentation is highly unorthodox, placing Uchidas mysterious bass textures against the wet skirl of Hasegawas hichiriki, an ancient double-reed wind instrument whose haunting upper register tones are an unmistakable feature of gagaku court music. Hasegawa brings a bucketful of phlegm to his approach to the instrument, out-honking Zorns duckcall work by a marshy mile. Uchida also contributes some striking ichigen (single-string) koto. Deliriously psychedelic, fully immersive drone and oriental wind works in the grand tradition of Taj Mahal Travellers, Nijiumu, Marginal Consort and too few others." - Alan Cummings.

The disc is made up out of 2 sidelong tracks that entwine around a minimal music aesthetic junked up with an improvisational free jazz like exploratory approach. The panoramic sonic outcome floats somewhere between the controlled burn of a detuned jet engine and the boundless fury of nomadic hordes on a rampage through the open Mongolian plains. Sucking in influences as wide ranging as Takayanagi, La Monte Young, esoteric Buddhist ritualistic mantras, Gagaku and a free-form psychedelic aesthetic, Hasegawa Shizuo succeeds brilliantly in resonating out a Dionysian vibration of harmonical tones pregnant with a pulsating intensity. Without a doubt one of the most interesting and intuitive sounds graced with a shamanistic sense of poetry to emerge out of deep subteranean belly of Tokyo. Still undetected but sure to blow headz worldwide. One time only edition of 400 copies housed in thicker than life jacket and high quality Japan pressed vinyl. LP only." - Tiliqua.

The trademark boogie of previous releases is still intact �?? in fact, the brief �??Zodiac Blues (w/ intro)�?� is the ruling-est stoned blues jam Wand has ever committed to tape �?? but for the most part, Volume 3 chooses to explore the dark side, with the two part �??Road to Nowhere�?� (a reference to the Carole King song of the same name?) taking up the bulk of the disc.

Seminal 1981 recordings; Mati Klarwein cover. Personnel includes: Jon Hassell (trumpet, pottery drums); Michael Brook (bass); Walter DeMaria (drums); Brian Eno (drums, bowl gongs, bells); Miguel Frasconi (bowl gongs); Daniel Lanois (mix). "Volume One of Jon Hassell and Brian Enos Fourth World report remains a classic recording of electronic, mutant gamelan and exotic indigenous musics that truly bridges many worlds. Dream Theory In Malaya picks up right where its predecessor left off, eking out even more convoluted paths into the dense shrubs and foliage of the cyberjungle. Dream Theory In Malaya, featuring collaborators Eno and Daniel Lanois, is one of Hassells finest moments. Hassells remarkable trumpet tone, all tone smears and monsoon breaths, is at its peak on Dream Theory, wherein insect-like tribesmen make ritual whoopee amid cavalcades of thick, throbbing log drums. At once alien and awe-inspiring, this music is so highly individual that it has yet to be eclipsed -- even by Hassell himself. Datu Bintung at Jelong further probes the gamelan/juju interface, splicing in the respiratory sounds of metallic harps, vibrating electronic chorales and strange, mechanistic breathing." - EG.

Title: Vibrant Stapler Obscures Characteristic Growth
Format: LP
Label: Sub Rosa
Country: Belgium
Price: $16.00
"First reissue of Hastings Of Malawis classic masterpiece Vibrant Stapler Obscures Characteristic Growth, originally released on the Papal Products label in 1981. Hastings Of Malawi were Heman Pathak, David Hodes and John Grieve. They recorded Vibrant Stapler Obscures Characteristic Growth in one night in 1981 with no plan and no idea of what they were doing. They played drums, clarinet, synthesizer and piano but also made use of things that they found lying around the studio - old records, cook books, telephone directories and a telephone. The recordings were played down the phone to randomly dialed numbers with the reactions added to the recording. All three had been involved in the recording of the first Nurse With Wound album Chance Meeting On A Dissecting Table Of A Sewing Machine And An Umbrella (1979) and had contributed metal scrapings, piano, effects, clarinet and guitar during the session. The star of the record is Pat Simmons who was the voice of the UK speaking clock between 1963 and 1984. In his book Lipstick Traces (1989) writer Greil Marcus seeks to draw a line from Dada through the Situationist International to punk rock. If this line exists, then Vibrant Stapler Obscures Characteristic Growth sits on the end of it. The only review that the album received was from Steve Stapleton who suggested that "nobody should miss this vinyl disaster" - good or bad are not concepts that can be applied to this recording. The record stands firmly in opposition to the now all pervading concepts of commercialization, celebrity culture and the commodification of creative activity. Originally 1000 copies were pressed on orange/red vinyl. 120 copies were sold through Rough Trade and Virgin Records. 800 copies were bought and later destroyed by the United Dairies label, adding to the elusiveness of this record. This reissue is on red vinyl, just like the original pressing. File under: dada, underground, post-industrial, concrete music, DIY, punk." - Sub Rosa.

Country: Austria
Price: $22.00
"Electroacoustic Sludge Dither Transformation Smear Grind Decomposition nO!se File Exchange Mega Edit is the long-awaited collaboration from two of the worlds finest purveyors of noise, electroacoustics, and top-shelf audio mayhem. Having met at the legendary Tokyo venue 20000 Volts in 1997, Russell Haswell and Pain Jerk (Kohei Gomi) stayed in touch with the intent to collaborate at some point in the future. This was eventually realized in 2012 when they were offered a gig to play together at the Rammel Club in Nottingham. Prior to the show they exchanged files of solo recordings, as a means of forming a basis for what was initially conceived as an "extreme duet tag mass attack." It was here that the foundation was laid for the epic extreme end-result we now encounter. The Nottingham performance was recorded and both parties took away the results in addition to their solo recordings to re-edit and re-send, back and forth, for two years, re-editing and re-contextualizing these original sounds. The results of this extended collaboration is a punk academic collision which utilizes advanced computer music techniques and analog/digital modular synthesizer splurge, along with the more basic and belligerent frequencies found in distortion and feedback. This can also be read as a study of editing in all forms; hyper-editing, editing in pop music, editing in dance culture, electro-acoustic editing, the editing techniques used in musique concrète, editing used in film and advertising along with the notion of gaps -- the audible and inaudible. A blistering 2CD collision of transformation, technique, ideas and form which resides equally in the advanced fields of electroacoustic study and the high energy freeform noise from which both practitioners sprung." - Editions Mego.

Title: As Sure as Night Follows Day
Format: Double LP
Label: Diagonal
Country: UK
Price: $29.00
“As Sure as Night Follows Day is Russell Haswells landmark second album for the London-based Diagonal label. Consolidating a quarter-century at the forefront of extreme computer music, techno, and death metal in 19 tracks and 49 minutes, its Haswells most coherent yet varied burst of activity to date, zigzagging from improvised n0!se outbursts and asphyxiated R&B to a brace of thundering acid bullets that positively froth for the floor. The album was extracted over a fast-working period in late 2014, and is best perceived as a sort of fractured regression to his formative influences; one can hear the picnoleptic recollections of grindcore shows in the Black Country, the refracted shades of mega-raves at Coventrys Eclipse, the conflating toxic texture-memories of early Japanese noise, and the incandescent stomp of Mills and Hood in that early-90s phase. Fortunately for the ravers, this album includes some of Haswells most direct dancefloor attacks to date. "HARDWAX FLASHBACK," for instance, finds him in pure tekno panik mode -- a four-to-the-floor wrecking-ball groove that someone, somewhere, may even be able to mix. "GAS ATTACK" distils his penchant for all things Belgium into a vicious strain of new beat lactic acid. Haswell then doffs his cap to Detroit electro legends Drexciya on "Underwater Electronic Struggle" -- a story goes that he once thrashed a jet-ski all over the Mediterranean while listening to “Wavejumper" in his phones -- before he does the salty freestyle electro flex ting on "Extended Industry Knowledge (for OSCAR)" while reminding his trusty apprentice Powell that he still has a lot to learn. Between these floor-flexers, one finds more freakish disturbances and intrusive drum-box improvisations: the modular mind-floss of "RAVE SPLURGE NOISE FM" or "Noise Rave," for instance, or the self-explanatory "Improvisation #1." "In the Air Today" investigates warehouse-ready electroacoustic percussion, while the chaotic clusters of "INTERLUDE" swarm and invade the senses with psychoacoustic incision. This is Diagonal and Russell at their most fucked up and fizzy, and an important reminder of the artists stream-of-consciousness genius -- and the pressing need for more chaos and unpredictability in electronic music today. Mastered and cut by Matt "The Alchemist" Colton at Alchemy. Soft-touch laminate sleeve design by Guy Featherstone.” - Diagonal.

Title: Kanal GENDYN
Format: LP + DVD
Label: Editions Mego
Country: Austria
Price: $31.00
"Editions Mego is happy to announce the release of Kanal GENDYN, a vinyl and DVD set by Russell Haswell & Florian Hecker. This is the first full-length release by the artists following their highly-acclaimed albums, Blackest Ever Black and UPIC Warp Tracks. In the late 90s/early 2000s, it became common for bands, or solo artists to perform live -- often alternative -- soundtracks to feature films or silent classics. Critical of obvious instrumentation and the combination with known classic film, the artists Russell Haswell and Florian Hecker chose to create a real-time soundtrack to an un-scored film, Kanal Video (1992, 60 min.) by the Swiss artist duo Peter Fischli & David Weiss. Core to Kanal GENDYN is Haswell & Heckers ongoing research on the legacies of polymath Iannis Xenakis (1922-2001) and in particular, his concept of the Dynamic Stochastic Synthesis, an abstract sound synthesis procedure that creates "sound out of nothing." In an interview with Peter Hoffmann, the artists recall: "This video, which consists of an hour-long ride through the Zurich sewage system, with a remotely controlled maintenance vehicle equipped with a video camera to survey the sewers for eventual irregularities of defects -- struck us both as an ideal piece to be projected in a nightclub or music venue with a GENDYN only performance. We found twisted relations with such an hour-long tunnel vision. Once with the seemingly endless amount of computer-generated video projections used as visuals accompanying raves and techno parties during the 1990s -- and also to the accounts of visual hallucinations induced by mescaline as described by Heinrich Klüver in the 1920s -- with the so-called form constants -- where he mentions amongst others, tunnel-like patterns. The particularities of GENDYN, with its ever-changing and meandering waveforms appeared to us as an ideal counterpart." Kanal GENDYN was performed on the occasion of the event "Musterraum 9. Dual Presentation -- Peter Fischli & David Weiss -- Russell Haswell & Florian Hecker" at Musterraum, Munich, 1/30/2004. Originally constructed as an experimental building, "Musterraum" -- German for "sample" or "reference room" -- was a freestanding cube with a base area of 10×12 meters. Built as a test and reference space for the planning and construction of the adjacent Pinakothek der Moderne. Two stereo feeds were crossed for quadraphonic (4.0) diffusion using a L&B F12/B12 loudspeaker system. Performed concurrently to the Peter Fischli & David Weiss, Kanal Video (1992, 60 min.) screened on three facing walls. Kanal GENDYN is released as a stereo vinyl LP + 4.0 DTS 24 Bit/48 KHz DVD (audio-only) set. The cover features 10 stills from the original Fischli & Weiss video, included inside is a 30x30 cm 170 gram paper insert with a further, full-page still, plus extensive sleeve notes by musicologist and software developer Peter Hoffmann, and everything was designed by NORM, Zurich. Its also worth noting that, with a running time of over an hour, this is one of the longest single LP releases you will come across.

"Hanson Records is proud to present the first LP from The Haters, In The Shade Of Fire, reissued for the first time on the CD format and for the first time in its original entirety. Originally released on LP by Silent Records in 1986, this digipak CD edition has been remastered by Warn Defever from the original master reels, and includes the full complete album as two of the tracks had to be shortened to fit on the original LP issue. Back during my Bachelor of Fine Arts, one of my fellow students was a woman who was eventually obsessed with the idea, systems, and eventual remnants of process. One of her key pieces involved hundreds of raw eggs which she carefully emptied, cracked open, and systematically peeled the delicate membranes from inside of the eggs. She carefully laid out the hundreds of membranes as they assembled in a giant area to the side of the studio. I swear that she didnt even have some grandiose idea for the membranes as the peeling and assemblage system(s) evolved into something that was simply beyond any eventuality and initial idea for the piling skins of the eviscerated eggs. The deconstruction and conception behind the act of pulling apart the eggs into a vast collection of grimy, translucent membrane piles suggested something so much more than even a final constructed piece. Watching her as she realized that the true crux behind the piece was the process alone was astounding as the membranes were laid to rest to represent an almost sudden and powerful eventuality that acted as a piled testament to process. The harsh sound works of The Haters over artist GX Jupitter-Larsens long and established career also powerfully bring to mind the idea of process. Most of The Haters works are ideologies behind something being destroyed or manipulated; the amplified and sometimes distorted sounds of the processes representing a document that exemplifies the acts carried out upon the objects, machines, or otherwise. The act of recording the processes alone is evidence of an eventuality (to possibly be edited further) in the form of a possible final piece of vinyl, cassette, or CD, but the tendencies of The Haters material also intend the listener to experience the process of the audio lines as they were primarily constructed in the recording area. There is no doubt that GX appreciates the totemic quality of his personal objects physical aftermath, that is sometimes documented with video or photographs, but the powerful beauty of a The Haters audio piece is the experience for the listener that acts ALSO as a final document of sound that represent clearly the certain idea and sometimes violent act. The Haters celebrated early work In the Shade of Fire acts a document collection for the listener that also reflects The Haters strong textural aesthetic through object manipulation and recording that defines GXs place in the world of harsh noise. Listening your way through the material is a studied and defined testament to different representational fragments of heavy sound and source manipulation. The tracks Glsam and Diti are explosive introductory and side concluding / framing pieces that highlight and pronounce the breaking and crashing down of material, all gelled with bass driven strikes whose trails deteriorate into hints of cascading dirty and dark Americanoise distortion. Bebas powers through a heavier dynamic with conscious falling apart of source material, but in abstracted waves that suggest the material being rebuilt just to simply fall and crash apart again with a sense of powerful futility. Thuch enhances the textural elements of the explosions and crashing as the sharpness of the strikes are slightly rounded at the edges to expose an almost gurgling texture that moves and slaps with vicious perplexity. Taisic represents a very early Americanoise study of hiss manipulation that is accented with minimalist scraping that bring to mind the force of process on top of the white noise line. Cassas is the albums meditated example of sharp shot-driven violence; articulated and seemingly layered for optimum cutting and breaking which bring forth sound dynamism from very physical deterioration. Fire 5 is an amazing example of a highly textural wall of sound that, to the contemporary fan of gritty and dirty crunch waves, is a primary early example of powerful crackle lines that focus on the inner dynamism of the sound itself. All of the material discussed above is made up of elements of physicality and process, but the tracks Iny 1 and Iny 2 act, for the listener, as the notes for the ideology of process and falling apart as they act as a more minimal, subtle, and exacting study of the scraping, scuffing, and hands on work of the artist as he manipulates the deteriorating materials. In essence, Iny 2 is an amazing concluding track that reminds the listener of the core focus and ideology behind The Haters exemplification of grating sound via concept driven manipulation of tangible sources, the process, the aftermath, and the eventual recording that reflects all of the above sound qualities." -Sam McKinlay

Steves smooth and densely layered drones, heavy in Kraut influence, are as huge as any of his contemporaries and as rich as his predecessors.  Vocal incantations reminiscent of "Way Their Crept" era Grouper place Steves compositions on another level. Deeply thoughtful and knowledgeable zones floating in and out of reality. In an edition of 150 labeled tapes with full color cardstock J-cards." - Arbor

Title: S/H
Format: Double CD
Label: Editions Mego
Country: Austria
Price: $22.00
"S/H is an anthology of rare and unreleased solo works by former Emeralds member Steve Hauschildt. Handpicked from eight years of home recordings, S/H is an archival work which delves into the inner workings of both his own music and his contribution to Emeralds sound. Much of Steves work has lay dormant for many years, but S/H gives the listener a personal tour of his canon from 2005-2012. Steves music was initially born out of the mid-2000s Midwestern noise scene. But instead of creating harsh noise, he reconfigured and reappropriated techniques from the Berlin School, drone, new age and other forms of electronic music to create something wholly his own. This two disc set ranges from short electronic sketches to full-blown synthesizer suites. Most of this material is unreleased, with a few essential rarities that appeared on cassette and CD-r releases for such imprints as Mike Pollards Arbor, Chris Madaks Deception Island and Hauschildts now-defunct label, Gneiss Things." - Editions Mego

Title: Sequitur
Format: LP
Label: Kranky
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"From Steve Hauschildt: This new album was recorded in both Vancouver and Cleveland. I used almost 20 different instruments, from every decade from the 60s to the present, most of them synthesizers, drum machines and effects. This gives the album a much wider palette than my last, Tragedy & Geometry, and it also gives it a more classic/new sound, yet it is still a logical follow up to that LP. I also used some techniques in the studio where I controlled older instruments with the computer and this opened up new ways for me to explore their potential as well as their innate idiosyncrasies. I was very interested in the artificiality of vocal or choir-like sounds that emulate a person or group singing, and how this has evolved with the advancement of musical technology over the years. I also sang myself, and used a vocoder, not to sound robotic, but to remove the connotations of gender. Those sounds are androgynous because they carry both masculine and feminine characteristics. I was inspired to carry this idea into music mainly because of the work of Camille Paglia and Donna Haraway. I feel that the album in a sense treads the imaginary boundary between nature and artifice. It is postmodern, but not necessarily a post-Freudian statement on cyborg theory or feminism. Rather it is a musically mimetic domain where these ideas freely collide and coalesce. Exactly one year on from his last album, Steve Hauschildt returns with his most commanding work to date. Dense and lush arrangements conjure a retro-futuristic soundscape for a time that never was, or one that may yet arrive." - Kranky.

Title: Strands
Format: LP
Label: Kranky
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
“Strands is a song cycle that is about cosmogony and creation/destruction myths. The title alludes to the structural constitution of ropes as I wanted to approach the compositions so that they consisted of strands and fibers which form a unified whole. This was so the songs could have the appearance of being either taut or slack without being fundamentally locked to a grid. So the sounds/tones have a certain malleability to them and sound like theyre bending through time. Its also grittier and more distorted than my previous albums. I wanted to try and capture that moment in nature and society where life slowly reemerges through desolation, so it has a layer of optimism looming underneath. The music represents this by seemingly decaying at times but then reforms and morphs in a fluid way back to its original state. I was also inspired by the movement of rivers, particularly their transformative aspect and how theyre in a state of flux and change, in particular the Cuyahoga River in Cleveland where I live, which notoriously caught on fire thirteen times because of industrial pollution in the 1960s and before. I was very interested in the dichotomy of oil and water and the resulting, unnatural symptoms of human industry. Its a very personal record for me as it is a reflection of my hometown where I grew up and where it was mostly recorded.” - Steve Hauschildt. “Graceful compositions flow throughout Steve Hauschildts fourth release for Kranky following his Where All Is Fled full length from late summer 2015. The songs fluctuate from the serene calm of album opener “Horizon of Appearances,” to the pulsing hypnosis of “Ketracel,” and on to the searing grandeur of album closer “Die in Fascination,” throughout, Steve remains restrained and in complete control of his sound." - Kranky.

Title: Tragedy & Geometry
Format: CD
Label: Kranky
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Perhaps the least prolific and quietest of the three members of Cleveland trio EMERALDS, STEVE HAUSCHILDT is usually found at their live performances playing the serious scientist as foil to the other two members more animated stage presence. As a teen, Steve bypassed the typical young music fan obsessions over punk and hardcore musics, drawn instead towards mid-late 90s techno/electro-revivalism and finding himself alone in an electronic universe of his own choosing. Steve has always considered himself more of an artist than a musician, and sees his work both in group and solo settings as much a visual experience as it is an aural one. The title Tragedy & Geometry is an ambiguous but subtle reference to Melpomene (Muse of Tragedy) and Polyhymnia (Muse of Geometry), or more specifically the collision/overlap of what they invoke. The opening track is also a direct reference to "Polyhymnia, Muse of Eloquence", the painting by the French artist Charles Meynier on display at the Cleveland Museum of Art. The album is a treatise on the idea that technology is becoming more disposable as its becoming more accessible, and how this circumstance has a more evident/direct effect on the interpersonal, i.e. relations, with others in the so-called Age of Information. What results is a gorgeous, flowing, floating world of post-kosmische musik, Steve Hauschildts first widely available release, and his first major statement as a solo artist." -Kranky.

Title: Where All Is FLed
Format: Double LP
Label: Kranky
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"Steve Hauschildts new album is his first since the late 2012 release of Sequitur. Although Where All Is Fled sonically harkens back to his earlier albums such as Rapt for Liquid Minister andTragedy & Geometry, it slowly becomes apparent that it is also a divergence from those recordings. Both the artwork and the music on this new work were heavily inspired by surrealist landscape paintings, early alchemical emblems, and recurring visions Steve had from dreams. The result is a pristine series of cascading melodies, fantastical terrains of layered lattices, and overlapping patterns of synthesizers superimposed with orchestral instrumentation. Hidden in the crevices of the album are processed crowd sounds, re-sampled text-to-speech synthesis, piano, and animal noises which reveal themselves after repeated listens and blur together notions of artificial and natural sound. While slowly unfurling, each sound is given its own place and space, never hurried, never cluttered. The album is a modern kosmische milepost, and the most accomplished statement of Steve Hauschildts vision yet." - Kranky.

Title: The End of the Line/Perspectives
Format: Double CD
Label: Sommor
Country: Spain
Price: $25.00
"The genesis of Havenstreet goes back to 1969, when Phil Ridgway and Jeff Vinter played in The Gas, an experimental psychedelic band heavily influenced by Barrett-era Pink Floyd. The two friends started to write songs their own songs, ending up as a folk duo. With the offer to record some of their material at a friends studio, they recruited more musical friends, so Havenstreet was born. The influences had expanded now to bands and artists such as Peter Hammill, Strawbs, Traffic, Procol Harum, Stackridge, Keith Tippett, Bert Jansch, etc. In the early-mid 70s they recorded a couple of albums which circulated as private cassettes among friends and relatives. In 1977, Havenstreet released The End of the Line, a self-released album in a private edition of 250 copies. It was a collection of very English songs with evocative, literate lyrics and a stunning progressive folk-rock sound. It featured one of the earliest known tributes to Syd Barrett on the song "When the Madcap Meets the World." This expanded double set reissue of Havenstreets sought-after album includes: the original The End of the Line album from 1977, a new album called Perspectives, which presents the best tracks from the privately-pressed cassettes The Autumn Wind (1974) and Transition (1976), plus rehearsal recordings for The End of the Line (1975/1976) and previously-unreleased recordings for the groups projected fourth album (1979), which was never completed. These amazing tracks range from electric acid-folk to Barrett-esque psych-pop, pastoral folk and Caravan-styled prog-rock. Includes a 16-page LP-sized booklet with photos and detailed liner notes. Remastered from the original master tapes." - Sommor.

Dirter Promotions presents on double vinyl a previously-unheard and unreleased live Hawkwind show from the Cambridge Corn Exchange in 1972. "Though the tapes were listened to in the weeks after the show, Lucas and Kemp upgraded their recording equipment to half-inch a few months later and the quarter-inch reels disappeared, thought perhaps to be lost forever. Fortunately, that wasnt the case. In 1985, a reel was unearthed at Spaceward Studios, noted to contain the Syd Barrett element of the show plus parts of the Hawkwind and Pink Fairies sets, and in 2005 a second copy of the recordings was unearthed in a collection of tapes stored in Gary Lucas attic. Its the Lucas tape, via an appearance on the auction lists at Bonhams in Knightsbridge, which has enabled the release of this pivotal show. Dirter Promotions is very pleased to present these recordings, cleaned-up and remastered, enabling Hawkwinds dedicated fan base to experience the band in full flow, poised to fly high and fly far, making the very concept of space-rock their own in perpetuity." - Ian Abrahams (taken from sleeve notes).

Price: $18.00
Limited to 500 copies. "Previously found prizing atom splitting feedback through a horizontal guitar, Bridget Haydens solo experiments have more lately sought the brooding, layered blues that we find resonating in “An Indifferent Ocean”. A stripped down set up, featuring an out of tune, hand me down guitar, two pedals of similar origin – no delays – and a donated fourtrack port-a-studio found on the street, has converged to form a crafted storm of abyss kicking improvisation.   Best known for her involvement with the hypnotic, shambollic and critically acclaimed drone band Vibracathedral Orchestra, Hayden split in 2006, desiring change and a new vein to hone.  She toured solo with kindred freaks such as The Aethr Method, Melanie Crowley-Delaney, Marcia Bassett and Sunburned Hand of the Man, later teaming up with The Telescopes henchman Stephen Lawrie to begin a noisy collaboration that continues to confuse and electrify.  Here, in her first official and long awaited solo release, you will find a spectrum of somnambulist trances that seamlessly conjoin dense and frantic depth with delicate fracture. Relentless guitar shredding epics are interspersed with graceful, drifting melancholia that lull the listener back to shore with a warm, whispered dream after being crashed mercilessly against the rocks." - Kraak.

"Baltimore-based sound artist Andy Hayleck has worked primarily with field recordings and bowed metal over the past seven years in improvised settings, installation and solo composed works. His previous recordings include The Disappearing Floor (Recorded), a suite of edited field recordings and vibrating metal sounds; Various Recordings Involving Ice (Fairfield/HereSee), a set of field recordings of crystallized H2O; and his bowed saw and cymbal performances with fricative free music collaborative group Trockeneis (Ehse). Two Gong/Wire Pieces presents side-long live-to-tape performances using a special system which Hayleck has invented and with which he has performed widely - bowing a long wire attached to a Chinese gong, allowing for special control of the irrational vibrations of the metal plate through careful control over the tension of the wire and place and style of bowing. The resulting masses of beating tone-forms are lakes and pools of eddies or whirlpools born from a deceptively simple and carefully considered system and a seemingly enormous pair of ears." - Ehse.

Format: Picture Disc LP
Label: Elevator Bath
Country: USA
Price: $21.00
"Beautiful picture disc LP featuring two full-color reproductions of visual works by Jim Haynes and two new side-long solo compositions. The ideal companion piece to Jim Haynes masterful album, Telegraphy by the Sea. Eraldus and Eravaldus are both shadowy concoctions built from agitated objects and amplified spaces (a lighthouse, some high-tension wires driven by wind, a very large pile of sand, etc.). These are subtly manipulated field recordings, rusted to perfection and fine-tuned into scraping and humming machinations. The artwork comes from two corroded photographs, one of which was created especially for this LP. Haynes has worked with this process for almost 15 years and, here, the resulting images are as beautiful and mysterious as the audio is nuanced and evocative. In addition to his solo work, Jim Haynes has participated in a number of fruitful collaborations over the years with Loren Chasse (as Coelacanth), Keith Evans, Steven Stapleton/Nurse With Wound, and irr. app. (ext.)/M.S.

Title: The Decline Effect
Format: Double Lp
Label: Helen Scarsdale Agency
Country: USA
Price: $26.00
"Parapsychology introduced the notion of the decline effect as a statistical phenomenon of diminishing results whilst investigating extra-sensory perception and psychokinesis. Where initial findings might substantiate proof of such abilities, further studies would almost always demonstrate the contrary. As such, this ontological disappearing act stands in allegorical parallel to the entropic art of Jim Haynes and frames his 2011 opus of the corroded drone and a compacted disintegration of sound. This San Francisco Bay Area artist has long defined his work through the pithy phrase: I rust things. The Decline Effect continues his investigations with electroacoustic decay through four bodies of evidence left behind from ephemeral aktions, shipwrecked electronics, re-engineered field recordings, and transmissions from the ether. Haynes composes through all of these sources through a patient suturing of sympathetic elements, whether they be textural, tonal, visceral, heavenly, sodden, or monolithic. Here, embers foretelling a nuclear winter gently waft upon industrial chorales amassed from an army of fidgeting motors; the sulfur-laden hiss from volcanic vents erupts from an organic thrum into boiling crescendos of environmental noise; geiger counter palpitations stream along a leaden sea of modulated radio noise; a warm explosion of sun-bleached distortion caresses the evanescent halos from an undulating mesmerism inexplicably not sourced from a guitar and/or digital patch authored by Christian Fennesz. Haynes broken minimalism orbits somewhere near the work Joe Colley, G*Park, Nurse With Wound, and BJ Nilsen. The 2LP of The Decline Effect is strictly limited to 350 copies, comes in a handsome gatefold sleeve, and sports the necessary download coupon. Zener cards not included." - Helen Scarsdale Agency.

Title: The Wires Cracked
Format: LP
Label: Editions Mego
Country: Austria
Price: $21.00
"The recordings for The Wires Cracked were completed in a frenzied two week period in October of 2012. I had mentioned in discussing a previous albums construction that I prefer to forget how I build any particular electro-acoustic amalgam. This is so that I dont get to precious with them, so that I could refine them further, so that the sounds themselves speak beyond their aggregate parts. With the album being relatively fresh in my mind, I can still recall various components to "The Wires Cracked" -- the desolate howl of a metal screen activated by a desert wind, the hissing air compression from the cooling apparatus for a laser at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory operated by Stanford University, and the tremolo rhythms from a thin wire that still get me thinking fondly of Günter Schickert -- but much of the caustic drone, thrumming reverberation, and tactile grit thoroughly escapes me. Thats probably for the best, since these various parts speak to an existential rupturing, the collapse of the self, the aftershocks of dark energy, and a belief in the hope for renewal. Describing his work through the pithy phrase "I rust things," Jim Haynes is an artist who has developed a vocabulary of decay that he has applied to photography, video, installation, and sound. Haynes sound work draws from shortwave radio static, electric field disturbances, controlled feedback manipulation, and numerous textural scrapings, manifesting broken minimalism of magnetic drones and volatile tactility. This engineering of disparate materials and media seeks to evince the unpredictability of decay, to manifest its potential for a rough hewn beauty, and to bare witness to its inevitability. He has exhibited internationally at Electric Works (San Francisco), the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art , the Bekerley Art Museum, The Exploratorium (SanFrancisco), WestSpace (Melbourne, Australia), Jack Straw Productions (Seattle), Eyedrum (Atlanta), Diapason (New York), and The Lab (San Francisco). Haynes has published his work through the Helen Scarsdale Agency, 23five Incorporated, Intransitive, Observatoire, and ElevatorBath. He has collaborated with Steven Stapleton (Nurse With Wound), M.S. Waldron (irr. app.(ext.)), Keith Evans, Allison Holt, and Loren Chasse.

"Hailing from the Turkish capital of Ankara, Hayvanlar Alemi is a group of contemporary players steeped in the art of psychedelics, surf, and expansive rock instrumental grandeur. Formed in 1999, the band is led by Özüm İtez (electric guitar) and Işık Sarıhan (percussion) and theyve released a variety of CDs and mp3 tracks in Turkey and beyond leading up to this, Guarana Superpower, their first-ever vinyl LP. The tracks drift from majestic beauty to blazing delirium with İtez etching his manifesto for electric guitar every step of the way backed by Sarihans wide variety of percussion styles. Although the group is rooted in classical and modern Turkish psych-rock in spirit, they draw on a large range of sounds and influences, and traces of Turkish styles are hard to pin down. Two of the tracks, "MEGA Lambada" and "Guarana Superpower," are more reminiscent of late 80s post-punk experimental mind-melting, referencing Torch Of The Mystics-era Sun City Girls in grand fashion. Other cuts expand on a diversity of areas including tripped-out surf, retro Cambodian rock, electrified Thai Mor Lam and Saharan guitar music.

Two of the tracks, "MEGA Lambada" and "Guarana Superpower," are more reminiscent of late 80s post-punk experimental mind-melting, referencing Torch Of The Mystics-era Sun City Girls in grand fashion. Other cuts expand on a diversity of areas including tripped-out surf, retro Cambodian rock, electrified Thai Mor Lam and Saharan guitar music. Every single track is memorable and the incredible variety helps confirm the fact that Hayvanlar Alemi is one of todays great rock instrumental combos. CD version features two bonus tracks and includes an 8-page color insert with photos of the group." -Sublime Frequencies

Title: Twisted Souvenirs
Format: LP
Label: Unrock
Country: Germany
Price: $27.00
"Hayvanlar Alemi, led by Ozum Itez (guitar) and Isik Sarihan (percussion), are a group of contemporary musicians from the underground scene of the Turkish capital, Ankara. Their genres are extraordinary psychedelic, surf, and instrumental rock, flavored with an exotic twist. They released some domestic CDs in Turkey before their international debut came out on Alan Bishops and Hisham Mayets Sublime Frequencies label in 2009. Guarana Superpower (SF 062CD/LP) sold out in only a few weeks. Twisted Souvenirs documents their fast-paced development into an elegant, highly complex, genuinely performed mélange of the most exotic possible influences. They position themselves close to their roots but open up at the same time to influences from the East and West and beyond. Reminiscent of Sun City Girls Torch of the Mystics phase, influences from Cambodian retro-rock and electrified Thai Mor-Lam are as deeply anchored in their sound-carpet as the glittering guitars from the Sahara. Hybrid music galore. "Karecikler Dolmadan," once the intro to their recent live sets, becomes the centerpiece to this album. "Yekermo Sew," a careful new interpretation of the Mulatu Astakte classic, and "Geneva Incident" are highlights amongst an album where each and every song is unique and recognizable. With a steady hand, Hayvanlar Alemi put pieces together from global sounds to make this album a perfect entity. Limited edition pressing of 750 copies." - Unrock.

Title: Visions of a Psychedelic Ankara
Format: LP
Label: Glitterbeat
Country: Germany
Price: $25.00
"Formed by three school friends in the Turkish capital of Ankara in 1999, Hayvanlar Alemi have established themselves at the vanguard of global psychedelic sound. Their acclaimed 2010 album Guarana Superpower (SF 062CD) was released on the buzz-label Sublime Frequencies and showcased the bands unrepentant eclecticism and wide-eyed cosmic spirit. Interfacing with the golden age of Turkish psychedelic rock, surf music, Cambodian pop, West African guitar motifs, Middle Eastern traditional music, and the knife-edge of indie rock, it was clear from the beginning that Hayvanlar Alemi was an instrumental rock band for our radically interconnected millennium. But in 2010 they also recorded and released (online) a dramatically different sort of album. The band had flirted with dub-reggae stylings since their inception and with Visions of a Psychedelic Ankara they at last realized their dream of making a full-blown dub album, though clearly a dub album that also embraced their own agenda. The album includes covers of the Eek-a-Mouse classic "Assassinator" and a legendary Turkish radio jingle, and blends together re-workings of older Hayvanlar Alemi songs with freshly minted, dubwise explorations. Drummer Işık Sarıhan explains the albums inception this way: "We were listening to a lot of dub and reggae during the days leading up to this album. We even ended up playing in a reggae festival at some point; we were invited for some reason, maybe because we had some reggae rhythms on a bunch of songs on the previous demos. Anyway, we had this fantasy of creating a dub record, but in our own psych-rock fashion which led to Visions of a Psychedelic Ankara. The title is a reference to the African Head Charge album Vision of a Psychedelic Africa." Visions of a Psychedelic Ankara is the flashpoint where dub music and global psych-rock melt together. It is a feast for all well-appointed sonic explorers. This is its first vinyl release, pressed on 180-gram vinyl, presented in a gatefold sleeve, and limited to 500 copies. Side A is the complete Visions of a Psychedelic Ankara (2010) and side B is a collection of related, previously unreleased songs and experiments titled Selected Visions (2009-2011)." - Glitterbeat.

"Underground Music" uses live electronics to simulate the movement of two related tunings moving in opposite directions, like trains through the abandoned underground station in which the piece was premiered. Program repeats on both sides." - Cassauna.

Title: States of Rushing
Format: LP
Label: Choose
Country: Germany
Price: $19.00
"Robin Hayward has completely redefined the tuba as sound-producing medium, releasing a sonic potential which ranges between the extremes of  noise and microtonality. Upon first listening, one finds it unimaginable that many of these sounds can be produced on a tuba, but Hayward has dedicated his life not only to empirical experimentation, but also to the academic scientific study of the acoustics of brass instruments.  Rarely has a musician of this caliber immersed himself so deeply in the boundaries of his instrument.  The resulting compositions make demands on us: they force us to sense the air pressure in contact with the physical world without framing the sounds in the conventions of contemporary or traditional music.  In this sense, Haywards approach is refreshing and revolutionary. In these extraordinary recordings there is no cultural intermediary - it is as if we find ourselves inside the instrument itself, being pushed back and forth against the walls of a giant membrane or tunnel; left to our own metaphorperceiving natural processes, minimal music, mechanical movement." - Choose.

Title: Stop Time
Format: CD
Label: Important
Country: USA
Price: $21.00
“Robin Hayward plays microtonal tuba in Catherine Christer Hennixs ensemble; Stop Time is his first composition to be released on Important Records. Stop Time was commissioned for a festival of the same name that took place in Leuven, Belgium, in 2013. It is the first piece to use a subset of the three-dimensional physical version of the Hayward Tuning Vine software, invented in 2012, as a musical score. The harmonic space implied within the four cubes contained within the subset, based on prime numbers two (octave, color-coded gray), three (perfect fifth, color-coded blue), and five (major third, color-coded red), is explored by the acoustic instruments and projected via the surround-sound system onto the physical space of the performance area. In this performance, the color-coding is made explicit by spotlighting each musician according to the color of the pitch played. In the middle of the piece, when the central black ball is sounded, the lighting therefore momentarily disappears. The idea is not so much to simulate synesthesia as to explore possible interactions between sound, vision, space, and time. Harmonic space is projected over time onto physical space, thus "stopping time." The recording and photos are from a September 2014 performance at De Bijloke, Ghent. Wannes Gonnissen: live electronics; Robin Hayward: microtonal tuba, composition; Pieter Matthynssens: cello; Bertel Schollaert: baritone saxophone. Marieke Berendsen: scenography.

Title: The Magical World of The Strands
Format: CD
Label: Megaphone UK
Country: UK
Price: $20.00
"2015 is a busy year for Michael Head. His second single as Michael Head & The Red Elastic Band was released in March 2015 on his Violette Records. "I Know You Well," a 1990 single by Heads band Shack, leads off Jon Savages 2015 Perfect Motion double LP compilation, described as "a musical return-trip to these fondly remembered years spanning 1988-93." And now, his classic 1997 album The Magical World of The Strands is available as a deluxe reissue. This reissue of this all-time classic also appears alongside The Olde World (MEGAUK 023CD/LP), a collection previously unreleased tracks and remixes from the album sessions. Finally, both the reissue and The Olde World arrive in advance of Heads first gigs as Michael Head & The Strands, where they will play The Magical World of the Strands in full. In 1993, Head teamed up with his brother John, his longtime drummer Iain Templeton, and two new recruits, Michelle Brown on bass and Les Roberts on flute, and began two years of recording sessions. The sessions came to a halt when Head was offered a major label deal, not for his current work, but for him to record as Shack again. Weaving rough mixes and sketches -- by engineer Steve Powell, made in Liverpool -- with completed mixes by producer Mark Coyle, Stephane Bismuth, the French promoter who initiated the Strands sessions, finally released The Magical World of The Strands on Megaphone in 1997. This work-in-progress garnered great critical acclaim and is rated by many as the "rarest jewel of the 90s" (Q). The CD version of this reissue includes two bonus tracks, the B-sides to the 1998 NME and Melody Maker Single of the Week "Somethin Like You." "Green Velvet Jacket" is an acoustic solo piece by Head, and "Queen Matilda (Demo)" was recorded in early 1993 and produced by the bands friend and live engineer Ian Eastwood on a four-track Tascam cassette recorder. The CD and LP both include a 20-page booklet containing new liner notes by Head himself and photographs testifying to album sleeves work-in-progress." - Megaphone UK.

Title: Headboggle
Format: LP
Label: Spectrum Spools
Country: USA
Price: $21.00
"Spectrum Spools are beyond excited to present you with the highly-anticipated vinyl debut of the Head Boggle project. The world has been waiting for this day to come, and finally a full-length long player has arrived. Recorded at his apartment studio, Headboggle is the manifestation of Derek Gedalecias acoustic/electronic research utilizing the "kitchen sink" in every sense of the idiom: Moogs, harmonica, banjo, harpsichord, Irish harp, EMS Synthi, violin, drums, clavinet, Serge Modular, field recordings and more! What makes Headboggle so special is the careful arrangement of sound, with painstaking attention to composition and sound direction. Disorienting magic is a key trait of the Head Boggle sound, one which captivates and commands repeated inspection. Like any great, focused album effort, there is a narrative arc -- from the introductory "Flourescent Star" with its dizzying, fractured crackle and bizarre piano float to the tension-packed, information-overloaded squabble and squawks of the "Dream Diary" and "Europa Astrobiology Lander" tracks. Head Boggle is a dedicated and devotional effort -- one with precision and prodigious vision. Equal parts François Bayle and Tod Dockstader in the best possible way, its still hard to pin such a multifaceted talent to any kind of descriptor. Derek has been honing his sound for years with loads of releases on almost every essential tape and CD-R label out there. Here we have his finest set of compositions yet in hi-fidelity, tight and tediously packed, forming his most concise release to date. The Head Boggle debut has raised the bar for classical electronic composition with the greats, a feat of rare occurrence." - Spectrum Spools.

Title: Serge Modular in Hi-Fi
Format: LP
Label: Experimedia
Country: USA
Price: $21.00
"Head Boggle returns to the vinyl format with what is perhaps his most refined and focused work to date. Serge Modular in Hi-Fi was recorded in early 2012 at the S.F. City College Electronic Music Lab utilizing a vintage pre-STS Serge Modular Synth system and was conceived as a pseudo aural cubist sound piece with an intention to achieve pseudo 3D cubed sound through discrete recording and mixing techniques. The only effects utilized were four or more analog delays being played real-time a la dub/reggae mixing techniques. The final selections were then sent to Kramer at Noise Miami for hi-fi correction and an aesthetic mastering treatment and then to Jeremy Bible for a final mastering treatment specifically for the vinyl format resulting in a sonically rich listening experience of hallucinatory synthesizer ragas. Derek Gedalecia has commanded the attention of the avant/noise underground as Head Boggle or nearly a decade now, showcasing his unpredictable live performances and omnivorous synth mastery in DIY venues across the country -- and on over 60 physical releases on labels like Baked Tapes, 905 Tapes, Spectrum Spools, and his own Greedmink imprint. The Head Boggle catalog speeds into the future as a continuing experiment with new equipment, compositional processes, and live performance tactics, as each release pushes the boundaries of his gear and his mind into more and more maniacal post-post-Subotnick free-for-alls." - Experimedia.

"Heart Land hail from New Hope, PA. Its a liminal place, halfway between everything, where all the lines blur and where things arent always what they seem. I remember one autumn evening a quarter-century ago, when New Hope first got under my skin. In that twilight moment, legendary psychedelic LP collector Veronica Breth (then still known as Gregg) let me in on her little secret: Its better to sell 100 records at $150.00 apiece, she whispered in her kiss-of-the-spider-woman purr, than it is to sell 1000 records at $15.00 each... I dont know if it was the ginseng wine, or the unbearable straightness of her long blonde hair, or the way s/he French-inhaled her clove cigarette, but the whole conversation made me a little light-headed. At that time, the notion struck me as elitist to the point of vampirism, but Ill be goddamned if her words arent truer now than when s/he uttered them. What with the internet both hipping everybody to everything and making it all available at any time, rarity itself is as rare as a day in June (as they say). Which brings me back to Heart Lands self-titled LP on Tequila Sunrise Records, one in a series of on-going collaborative co-releases, this one with Cream of Turner Records. Its a limited edition of 200, all with hand-made library-binder style covers, and very sharp-looking indeed. But not only is every sleeve different and unique, but every record is different, too -- at least, thats how it sounds! What do I know? Every time I play it, it sounds different. Seriously. All I know is that the guys from Heart Land burrowed into the outside-psychedelic-trance-noise-improv badger-hole like a dachshund (albeit one with an un-German sense of humor) and came back with a mash-up of every track on the NWW want-list plus a few imaginary tracks mixed in (only it turns out none were really imaginary after all, if you get my drift). Are these songs 30 seconds long, or are they whole sides? Are they soundtracks for unseen cinema? Who can say? I cannot answer these questions, I can only raise them. Heart Lands inspired throb is a true rarity, sand thrown into the gears of the reality studio machine, and you dont have to be a Swiss collector to afford it. Yet. Listen, wonder, and ride a white dove, luv!" -Carlos Ramirez, San Tanco, Puerto Rico

God and Hair is a super upbeat, melodic pop record in essence, but as mentioned before, these guys come from a very DIY background. Its got some fast repetitive lo-fi punk rock jams with reverb enhanced vocals similar to those found on the Sneakers Children Into People EP, and some Clean-esque pop elements, but its also got tracks with a great laid back summertime 90s alt-pop vibe not too dissimilar from the least noisy 90s moments of Sonic Youth and Sebadoh.

"The second album from Cambridge, MA-based Heathen Shame. The trio of Greg Kelley ,Wayne Rogers , and Kate Village formed under the banner Heathen Shame in the fall of 1999. After a handful of one-off shows they recorded their self-titled debut LP in May of 2002, which caught them just as their sound was starting to gel. They then embarked on a three week tour of Americas heartland with Double Leopards (including at least one outdoor show that could be termed a "gathering") in an attempt to share their unique brand of high decibel improvisation. Although they drove away as many people as they converted (OK, maybe a lot more than they converted), the steady gigging continued upon their return and soon the Heathen Shame were playing as one mind rather than three. Speed The Parting Guest is a carefully paced but blazing affair that shows how seamless a unit theyve become. In contrast to the abstract feel of their debut, Speed The Parting Guest finds them swinging large blocks of sound around their heads for hours before launching them at you. Their wall of sound is now a sonic universe that they can manipulate with slow malice or lightning precision. Heathen Shame are destined to be THE most talked about two-guitar-and-trumpet combo of 2005 and beyond." - FE.

Title: Intersex
Format: LP
Label: Pan
Country: UK
Price: $27.00
"Intersex is the debut LP by Steven Warwick aka Heatsick. The title references the work of German sexologist Magnus Hirschfeld, looking at how music and sexuality can operate in flux on a constantly sliding scale. Executed on just a Casio keyboard and manipulated loops via guitar pedals, Intersex deliberately evokes "ersatz" notions of electronic dance music and early electronics in the line of Roberto Cacciapaglias Ann Steel record, the work of Warner Jepson and the kaleidoscopic sound of Ron Hardy, pushing dance/body music through a saturated psychedelic lens. Steven Warwick is a Berlin-based performer, also known for his work in the electronic duo, Birds Of Delay. His approach is one of carefully thought-out loops which are then sent into varying interactions and play. Active in the club, art and music scenes, Warwicks work is one existing in a luminal space, meditating both at once in real time and the "just past." The LP is mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering, in a limited edition of 500 copies, pressed on 140 gram vinyl and comes in a poly-lined inner sleeve. It is packaged in a pro-press color jacket which itself is housed in a silk-screened PVC sleeve with artwork by Steven Warwick, Kathryn Politis & Bill Kouligas." -Pan

Country: UK
Price: $27.00
"Re-Engineering is the bold new album from Heatsick, aka Berlin-based British artist Steven Warwick. Well-known for his epic multi-hour live club sets and acerbic wit, he characterizes this collection of new material as a "cybernetic poem" that both indulges us in the mores of hypnotic dance music while holding a critical, and at times satirical, lens toward the culture writ large. The opening title-track is symbolic of this balance, the crisp spoken-word poetry communicating hyper-modernity in crisis in a piece that equally evokes the masked humor of Chic and the biting surreal-ity of Chris Morris. "Modern life is still rubbish you say. Modern rubbish is still life." The tracks "Mimosa" and "Speculative" play with a similar conflict, warping the themes of modern luxury familiar to Malcolm McLarens seminal Paris album, and delivering rare vocal lines that convey distance and a degree of uneasiness. The masterful club tracks that constitute the bulk of this album feel all the more powerful and honest when framed in this hyper-aware context, confirming the underlying inclusiveness in Warwicks music and perspective. We dance together, we crash together." - Pan.

Following up on that response comes the massive and dense blowout that is Alive In My Mouth. Comprised of two of the bands dirtiest and, quite simply, heaviest tracks, it is music for tearing down physical walls. Each copy includes a complete CD that features both of the album tracks in addition to a "bonus" 17 minute track. Edition of 647 copies pressed on 180-gram RTI vinyl, housed in heavy art sleeves bearing new artwork by MICHAEL CANICH and letterpressed by Dexterity Press." - Three Lobed

Title: Fields Within Fields
Format: LP/CD
Label: 3Lobed
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"Theyre back. Heavy Winged has continued to stretch their leathery, scarred, er, wings and grow since their last release for Three Lobed Recordings, 2008s Alive In My Mouth. The band was determined to make Fields Within Fields into a significant part of their discography from the very outset. In October 2009, the band decided to enter the 5D Studios in Brooklyn to engage in what would be a first-time experiment - recording in a multi-track studio with overdubs planned from the sessions start. Prior to this experience the bands entire catalog was centered on displaying their ferocious live spirit. Having already proven themselves to be adept at creating grand and heavy statements in an improvised, one-take-only setting, they felt that were ready for the challenge of being both improvisational and composition-minded. The band hunkered down for the session and even brought in some friends to help augment the Heavy Winged vibe. Their time in 5D yielded the two dark fruits which combine to form Fields Within Fields. Brutal and hard, Among The Maori leads the album off and encompasses the entire first side of vinyl. The track opens with a slow, deliberate fade into Jed Bindemans (Eternal Tapestry, Jackie-O Motherfucker) tribal drumbeat. This beat may start controlled but the tracks velocity and volume continue to accelerate, eventually turning Among The Maori into a highly tuned jet engine. Ryan Heberts guitar playing is exceptional throughout, beginning with an initial prolonged banshee-like wailing and slowly building and fully giving way to a fantastically cranking and grinding post-metallic din by the tracks conclusion. Among The Maori stands out among the bands entire catalog as perhaps their truest moment. The albums second side is fully dedicated to the drone doom opus The Hum Of The Universe."

Price: $20.00
"The Shaking, Waking LP consists of two lengthy tracks: "Tidal Blackness" is a 23-minute cloud of improvised guitar and bass drone, underpinned with sparse percussive elements and dappled with the rays of ethereal melodies. This track, recorded live in Oakland in 2008, represents the more gentle side of HEAVY WINGED in some ways and is largely soothing. The second side harbors "Morning Flesh," 18 minutes that veer towards the caveman Krautrock of the recent Alive in my Mouth LP, drums pounding, Neanderthal guitar chugging, though with a melodic haze drifting across the musical landscape like a lysergic mistral, leading the listener ever further into the shifting sands of the forbidden zone. Pressed on 180-gram transparent pale gray vinyl, limited to 500 pieces in a heavyweight matte sleeve." - Aurora Borealis.

Title: Sunspotted
Format: LP
Label: Type
Country: UK
Price: $19.00
"Heavy Winged are a sprawling North American trio made up of drummer Jed Bindeman, bassist Brady Sansone and guitarist Ryan Hebert. Over the last few years, the band have released a cacophonous splatter of cassettes, vinyl and CD-Rs for Not Not Fun, Digitalis, Aurora Borealis and a handful of other esteemed imprints. Most of these have been mercilessly grimy signifiers of their buzzing free-rock style, and were recorded poorly to almost accentuate the harsh guitar tones and double-time blast beats. This latest jagged offering, however, is a rare beast in the Heavy Winged canon, offering a higher-fidelity peek into their muddled world. This time around, the band escaped to a "real" studio to record two slices of extended sludge rock, which come across as wider than ever, thanks to some fresh recording techniques. Something like an unholy union between the sheet-noise of Yellow Swans and the blissful sub-harmonic transcendence of early Mogwai or Sonic Youth, Sunspotted is an album that takes tried-and-tested sounds and bends them beyond recognition. Sure, plenty of bands have made distorted, blurred, guitar noise before, but rarely with the conviction and wit of Heavy Winged. With their early explorations into doom and metal, we find the band on a high, framing their high-octane jitter into something that could almost be mistaken for beautiful. Just as the aforementioned Yellow Swans took their sound from the outer reaches of noise to something, dare I say it, pretty, Heavy Winged have focused their three individual powers to come up with an album that revels in its depth and shimmering beauty. It might take a few listens to reveal its layers, but Sunspotted is a challenging and rewarding listening experience. Standing at the top of the bands already estimable catalog of albums and EPs, this album finds them at a key moment, a moment where they have found a balance between fidelity and grit, harmony and discord. Step in, turn it up and let yourself descend. Cut at Berlins D+M." - Type.

Price: $27.00
Small warehouse find of this 2011 LP. "Deluxe vinyl issue of one of the most important albums of modern music and quite simply some of the finest computer audio excursions unleashed in recent years. Sun Pandamonium is the third full- length album from Florian Hecker, originally released in CD format on Mego in 2003. Sun Pandamonium also received the Award of Distinction Digital Music at the Prix Ars Electronica - the International Competition for CyberArts - the same year. Striking the listener from many angles with a diverse range of fiercely dynamic electronic scenarios, Hecker utilizes the computer to materialize new compositional strategies, leaving behind standard musical structures and seeking out unusual timbral and textural effects. As one reviewer stated, This record is electronic music as psilocybin science. Or, as the American online journal Pitchforkmedia states: Loud and overwhelming at any volume setting, Sun Pandamonium contains the sounds and frequencies not only of diamonds being sharpened, but then being used to etch directly on the lenses of your optical readers. Call him a sick fuck, a genius, or even Mister Antichrist, but this will cleanse the audio palate as it blows your teeth out. The LP is mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at D&M, in a limited edition of 800 copies, pressed on 140g vinyl and comes in a poly-lined inner sleeve. It is packaged with six monochrome lacquered sheets which are housed in a silk screened PVC sleeve with the original artwork by Tina Frank & Florian Hecker." - Pan.

Country: USA
Price: $24.00
"The first chapter of SSTUDIOS (Software Studio Series), a new venture in the Software Recording Co.s expanding catalog. SSTUDIOS invites artists in the field of electronic music to create collaborative works of quality and vision. With a deliberate focus on source material of a synthetic and mimetic nature, Hecker and Lopatin designed a sound palette from the acoustic resonance of digitally-sourced instruments of the world. The intrepid cowboy sound-voyager was inverted, forging a synthesis with the ecstatic other; digested exotic instrumentation fuel the tepid journeys of a sampler tourist. Instead of leaning heavily on the proverbial Malian time signatures sublime truth, Instrumental Tourist pictures the synthetic veneer of exoticism as pushed air captured by oscillating ribbons. The studio meetings between Hecker and Lopatin were conducted to mimic the tropes and techniques of jazz-based improvisation, with little preparation prior. In an era where electronic production can produce the totalities of symphonic effect, and solo sound composition is easier than ever, the necessity of collaborative work is questioned. Could their own respective artistic pursuits be neatly compiled and encapsulated by the very sound bank paradigm that theyve exploited? Why work together at all? Instrumental Tourist finds two artists transcending their respective visions by agreeing to a new language, one which verbalizes their mutual infatuations and apprehensions with the systems theyve both built and are buried by." - Software, Housed in a deluxe gatefold sleeve; hand-numbered edition of 2000; includes download code.

Title: Hecker Leckey Sound Voice Chimera
Format: LP
Label: Pan
Country: UK
Price: $27.00
“In 2010, acclaimed German sound experimentalist Florian Hecker and multidisciplinary artist Mark Leckey came together for the first time. Their combined Hecker Leckey Sound Voice Chimera -- a mutant configuration of two genetically discrete solo works -- was originally presented as part of a two-day performance event at the Tate Modern called Push and Pull, and is now presented on LP. In Hecker Leckey Sound Voice Chimera, Hecker decomposes, modulates, and re-synthesizes the vocal track from Leckeys 2010 performance piece GreenScreenRefrigeratorAction (for which Leckey intoned the inner monologue of a black Samsung fridge) and his own 3 Channel Chronics installation from that same year, where distinct sounds from three speakers telescoping down from the ceiling were combined and altered by visitors movements. The resulting work -- like that three-headed beast of Greek mythology -- is a multivalent, tri-part hybrid in which heavily distorted fragments of Leckeys narrative intersperse Heckers synthetic textures and fidgety tonal patterns. On the PAN release itself, channel 1 from Hecker Leckey Sound Voice Chimera corresponds with side A and channel 2 with side B; channel 3 is available as a monophonic mp3 download. Florian Hecker returns to PAN following his 2011 vinyl issue of Sun Pandämonium. Trained in computational linguistics and fine arts, Heckers work deals with specific compositional developments of post-war modernity, electro-acoustic music, and psychophysical domains of audition. Mark Leckey is a British artist, pop-culture provocational agent, and self-described autodidact working across sculpture, sound, film, and performance. His notable video works (collaged from found material) include the 1999 cult short Fiorucci Made Me Hardcore (soundtrack available on The Death of Rave (LECKEY 001LP)) and Industrial Lights and Magic, for which he was awarded the Turner Prize in 2008. A career retrospective, "Lending Enchantment to Vulgar Materials," was presented at WIELS in Belgium, and his work is included in the collections of the Centre Georges Pompidou, Hammer Museum, and Walker Art Center, among others. He has served as Film Studies professor at the Städelschule in Frankfurt-am-Main, Germany, and is currently Reader in Fine Art at Goldsmiths, London. The first comprehensive monograph of his work, On Pleasure Bent, was published in 2014. Hecker Leckey Sound Voice Chimera is written and produced by Florian Hecker; GreenScreenRefrigeratorAction courtesy of Mark Leckey. Mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at D&M. Includes liner notes by art historian Alex Kitnick, and artwork by Florian Hecker and Bill Kouligas.” - Pan.

Limited repress. "In 2015, Room40 celebrates 15 years of editions and events; as part of the celebrations, the label is reissuing a number of editions in various formats that are out of print. One of these editions brings together two of the pieces the label had the pleasure to publish by Tim Hecker. These two works were both created in conjunction with Heckers visits to Australia and were released in limited quantities. The 2010 7" edition of Apondalifa basically vanished upon release. It was also originally split across both sides of the record. On this edition, cut by the wondrous Lupo at Calyx, the piece is available on vinyl for the first time in its extended format. Norberg was originally released in 2007 as a 3" CD; Room40s original description reads, "Recorded at the Norberg Festival (Sweden) amidst the mineshafts and cluttered buildings strewn throughout parts of the city, this 21 minute live piece summarises much of what makes Tim Heckers music so vital and compelling. Adept at counter-pointing the most ferocious of distorted platters with smooth beds of ambient sound and potent melodic overtones, Tim Hecker creates music with a vast depth. On Norberg, this depth seems almost endless, as layer upon layer of sound are compiled into a swelling and altogether visceral oceanic sound wave." - Room40.

Title: Ravedeath, 1972
Format: Double LP
Label: Kranky
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Tim Heckers latest work approaches a form of secular musical transcendentalism from within the battered temple of spirituality. Recorded in a church in Reykjavik, Iceland and using a pipe organ as the primary sound source, this new piece is essentially a live recording. In reality, it exists in a nether world between captured live performance and meticulous studio work, melding the two approaches to sonic artifice as a unity. It is in parts a document of air circulating within a wooden room, and also a pagan work of physical resonance within a space once reserved for the hallowed breath of the divine. While the title of the piece Hatred of Music might be a clue, the album is also partly an attempt to confront a pervasive negativity surrounding music. Historical rituals of destroying pianos, mountains of pirated CDRs pushed by bulldozers in Eastern Europe, or the melancholy of the digital music era began as sideline motifs which quickly informed the work on this record. They also really didnt at all. Despite that the context is wide open in such a form of musical abstraction, the substance of these immersive compositions showcases Heckers continued mastery of organizing sound into a visceral near entity. It is an almost physical presence that the listener feels as much as hears. This work is a significant contribution to Heckers oeuvre, one which spans over ten years of musical production. Ravedeath is an enigmatic document of beauty and force. The album was recorded mostly over the period of one day in July of 2010. Iceland-based musician Ben Frost assisted with the engineering and performs on this recording." -Kranky

"New remastered CD version (from original tapes according to the cover info), in cardboard sleeve (aka "vinyl replica" packaging); edition of 999 copies. "When Obsolete was published in November of 1971, the reporter from the magazine of reference, Superpop Hebdo (Superpop Weekly), questioned the repetitive aspect of this disc. He couldnt know that this musical approach would take flight thanks to English and German groups like Hawkwind, Amon Düül, and soon after, Gong, in France, whose founding members (Daevid Allen, Didier Malherbe, Pip Pyle, Gilly Smith, Christian Tritsch) accompany Dashiell Hedayat. From this space-rock album is torn Chrysler Rose -- a little known masterpiece in its day, but which has today become a cult anthem to the joint at all hip celebrations, revered by multiple generations of partiers. Humor and derision exist alongside the unreal on Love Song for Zelda, realized with the help of William Burroughs, author of the hippies must-have bedside book Junkie. Drugs are omnipresent in the hallucinatory texts of Dashiell Hedayat. The musical and lyrical composition date from the autumn of 1969, from whence the choice of the title Obsolete. An avant-garde disc so cool, itll never go out of style! After having composed a second, very rare, opus under the pseudonym Melmoth (the beginning of intoxication), Dashiell Hedayat has since adopted a different type of writing, and today has authored novels and Hollywood screenplays under the name Jack-Alain Léger." -Mantra

A few excerpts of the 1st and 4th movements were performed on November 22nd, 1960 at the Quatre Saisons Gallery in Paris, during the Festival of Avant-Garde Art. Poème-Partition X might be considered Heidsiecks first major work, whose duration (more than 40 minutes long) never allowed the author to give a public reading of it. Its destination was a record (released by Alga Marghen in 1996, starting the VocSon LP series, 36 years after its creation)! Alga Marghen is proud to now present this new edition of Poème-Partition X, extended to the CD format and included in a luxury 96 page hardbound book, limited to 350 copies. The book reproduces for the first time the complete score, a visual wonder and a major experimental printed work. Bernard Heidsiecks memories of an historic lecture at the Jean Tinguely atelier is included as an introduction, as well as his testimony on Ian Sommerville and Brion Gysins Dream Machine. Also on the CD is a lecture of extracts of Poème-Partition X accompanied by the saxophone of the American painter Larry Rivers. This recording from 1962 was not included in the LP edition and is here presented for the first time. In August 1962, Bernard Heidsieck went with John Ashberry, the American poet, to dinner at the studio of Jean Tinguely and Niky de Saint Phalle. Larry Rivers had a studio in the same place and was also there. Tinguely prepared grilled meat, skewered on one of his rotating sculptures. After dinner Rivers returned to his studio and began to play, alone and for himself. He earned his living, at the time, by playing sax at an after-hours jazz club. So, while he was playing Bernard Heidsieck joined him in his studio and suggested that they do an improvisation together. Something that Heidsieck had never done before, and has never done since! Larry Rivers immediately accepted, and an appointment was set up at Heidsiecks home a few days later. August 6th, 1962. A dinner party was organized for the same guests who had been at Tinguelys place and this unique 17 minute improvisation was recorded, but until now never released. It was, however, presented at the first Fylkingen Text-Sound Composition Festival in Stockholm in 1968. Luxury hardbound edition limited to 350 copies." -Alga Marghen

Psychedelic rock record collectors have been repeating the name Heitkotter as if it were a mantra ever since the first copy of a hand-made demo LP turned up in a Los Angeles music publishers reject bin, with nothing more than that word scrawled across a plain white jacket. Now-Again Records embarked some years ago on what seemed like a fruitless crusade -- to find out more about this Heitkotter, his music, his story. In the process, weve visited the house where this confounding album was recorded, found Heitkotters musicians, rescued the demo-recordings that paved the way for this album, uncovered unpublished photos and paintings by the man behind the album, and are now ready to present the definitive look into a musical vision equal parts dangerous and peaceful, nihilistic and optimistic. Its safe to say the world has never heard something like Heitkotter -- it is a unique piece of art unlike anything that came before or has come after it. The bizarre LP known as Heitkotter -- recorded in around 1971 and pressed in a run of less than twenty five copies - was the culmination of one Stephen David Heitkotters artistic career. Ross Dwelle, Stephens childhood friend and the drummer on the record, describes the bedroom sessions in a handsome Craftsman home in Old Fresno as this young trio trying to play five songs written by a man losing his mind...probably stoned the whole time. Heitkotter, this time issued as Black Orckid, as we assume Stephen would have wanted it - is too complicated to be written off as a symptom of a greater ill, or lionized by a few (and dismissed by the majority) as outsider art. Its a rare and vital look at 60s and 70s American rock through the sad story -- and incredible music -- of an untethered soul. And as we hope to show in enlightening more of Stephens backstory, it can also be considered sweet, kind and optimistic. The Heitkotter tale is cautionary, but Stephens music is as close to the sublime as American rock has ever ventured." - Now-Again.

Now-Again Records embarked some years ago on what seemed like a fruitless crusade -- to find out more about this Heitkotter, his music, his story. In the process, weve visited the house where this confounding album was recorded, found Heitkotters musicians, rescued the demo-recordings that paved the way for this album, uncovered unpublished photos and paintings by the man behind the album, and are now ready to present the definitive look into a musical vision equal parts dangerous and peaceful, nihilistic and optimistic. Its safe to say the world has never heard something like Heitkotter -- it is a unique piece of art unlike anything that came before or has come after it. The bizarre LP known as Heitkotter -- recorded in around 1971 and pressed in a run of less than twenty five copies - was the culmination of one Stephen David Heitkotters artistic career. Ross Dwelle, Stephens childhood friend and the drummer on the record, describes the bedroom sessions in a handsome Craftsman home in Old Fresno as this young trio trying to play five songs written by a man losing his mind...probably stoned the whole time. Heitkotter, this time issued as Black Orckid, as we assume Stephen would have wanted it - is too complicated to be written off as a symptom of a greater ill, or lionized by a few (and dismissed by the majority) as outsider art. Its a rare and vital look at 60s and 70s American rock through the sad story -- and incredible music -- of an untethered soul. And as we hope to show in enlightening more of Stephens backstory, it can also be considered sweet, kind and optimistic. The Heitkotter tale is cautionary, but Stephens music is as close to the sublime as American rock has ever ventured." - Now Again.

"Reissue of this legendary super-rare private press. A three-piece band plays sprawling, inept baked blues led by a mysterious mental patient. Housed in an ultra heavy cardboard sleeve on 180 gram vinyl, with an insert of insightful and speculative liner notes -- the most information youll ever find about this mythic record. Truly one of the great outsider creations ever spawned under a full moon." - FE. "The circumstances behind Heitkotter are obscure and confusing: all that is known for certain is that Steve Heitkotter recorded the LP sometime before 1971, when he and his reluctant brother Bill took unsolicited promotional copies to eight local FM station in Californias San Joaquin Valley. Whoever else may have participated is a mystery: Steven had spent the mid 60s drumming for Fresno garage mainstays the Road Runners, so he had some connections left, but the time after the Runners had reportedly brought him to psychotropic drugs and mental instability, and his family doubts that he was on good terms with enough musicians even to organize a drag jam of messed up desert loner westcoast churning and meandering, like a Magic Band gig falling apart (Paul Major). The LPs murky sound and symbiotically disintegrating musicianship do seem to suggest that the session was cut live to four track, but Bill Heikotter swears that Steve was a loner at the time, alienated from his former bandmates, and that he recorded the album entirely by himself. That makes the amnesia of the musicians, who intermittently forget how to play their instruments, all the more curious, as Steve himself was a good guitarist and quasi-professional drummer, though the influence of drugs, fatigue, or apathy seems plausible enough." - Time-Lag.

Title: Agneta Nilsson
Format: LP
Label: Wah Wah
Country: Spain
Price: $29.00
"After our acclaimed reissues of the previous three LPs by Richard Pinhas project Heldon, here is their fourth LP originally issued on Disjuncta/Urus in 1976. Agneta Nilsson is an interesting step in Heldons development: it gives a twist to their classic sound, which was mainly built around Pinhas Fripp-esque guitar work and ambient synth experiments to begin to explore a more rhythmic territory. Drums and bass take more presence here, offering a rockier feel, but somehow retaining the mysterious ambience of its predecessors, while adding an extra touch of sinister aggressiveness. Featuring among others Magmas keyboardist, Patrick Gauthier, it starts pretty much in the same ambient, spacey, minimalist electronic mood of the previous Heldon releases, but as the development of the main title Perspective goes ahead the move towards the more guitar and drums sound of the next to come Heldon sound is evident. Agneta Nilssons sound has been described somewhere as a more sinister Tangerine Dream mixed with a more jammy King Crimson. Our reissue comes housed in a faithful reproduction of the original sleeve. It is made in a strictly limited edition of only 500 copies." -Wah Wah

Country: USA
Price: $26.00
"Allez-Téia, the second album by French guitarist Richard Pinhas under the Heldon moniker, was originally released in 1975 on the artists own Disjuncta imprint. Far from the bands prog-tinged trio lineup, Allez-Téia features a menagerie of guitars, Mellotron and analog synthesizers.While opening track In the Wake of King Fripp pays homage to King Crimson in its title, the albums heady textures and rhythmic meditations are more reminiscent of the German Kosmiche movement (Cluster, Harmonia, et al.) and post-rock experimentalists, such as Jim ORourke and Gastr del Sol. Acoustic guitar even makes a rare appearance?on the beautiful and melancholy Aphanisis. With front cover artwork depicting the events of May 68 in Paris (by renowned photojournalist Gilles Caron), these dark ambient sounds make Allez-Téia perhaps the most revolutionary release in Heldons influential catalogue, foreshadowing Pinhass incredible solo work for decades to come." - Superior Viaduct.

Format: LP + 7"
Label: Wah Wah
Country: Spain
Price: $29.00
"After our string of releases centered around the diverse German 70s scene, were happy to introduce the next installment in the Wah Wah LPS reissue series. This time we move over to France to re-discover the beginnings of one of the most adventurous, influential and innovative French bands of the seventies: Heldon. Centered around guitarist Richard Pinhas and featuring a floating cast of regular collaborators (Didier Batard, François Auger, Patrick Gauthier, Alain Renaud, Georges Grunblatt; Coco Roussel amongst others), Heldon will marry Pinhas personal obsessions of modern philosophy (Deleuze, Guattari), science-fiction (Norman Spinrad, Philip K.Dick), progressive rock (King Crimson, Fripp & Eno), American minimalism (Terry Riley, Steve Reich) and electronic music into a diverse musical cocktail that goes from the violent to the relaxed, but always retaining a dark and mysterious vibe. Often linked by critics and listeners to the experimental German bands of the era (Tangerine Dream, Ash Ra Tempel..), Heldon will release six crucial albums before being closed down by Pinhas in the late 70s. Since then, Pinhas has developed a long solo career that lives up to this day, releasing several albums and collaborations (Pascal Comelade, John Livengood, Maurice Dantec), including with Japanese noise king Merzbow. Dedicated to Robert Wyatt, Heldons debut contained a puzzling collection of tracks that serve as a perfect introduction to Pinhas universe: science-fiction, philosophy and musical experimentation collide in a harsh lo-fi tapestry of sounds dominated by Pinhas 1954 Gibson Les Paul guitar and AKS synth. Not unlike some contemporary German bands, Heldon manages to take rock n rolls language to a new experimental stage. Convulsive and evocative soundscapes recommended to all lovers of innovative and ground-breaking music. Strictly limited to 500 copies. High quality sleeves reproducing the original artwork from 1974s first press on Disjuncta. Includes insert with extra liner notes by Spanish journalist and long-time Heldon fan Paco Peiró. Bonus 7" EP with tracks taken from Heldons predecessor band Schizos two EPs. 7" tracklist: A1. Schizo (and the little girl) A2. Paraphrenia Praecox (originally released in 1972) B1. Le Voyageur B2.

Title: Interface
Format: LP
Label: Superior Viaduct
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"RICHARD PINHAS is an artistic iconoclast. A French intellectual as likely to collaborate with Magma as the radical philosopher Gilles Deleuze, Pinhas released seven albums under the HELDON moniker in the 1970s that flaunt the mastery of progressive rock and early electronics while still being thoroughly avant-garde. The genre-expanding innovation of his 70s output is best encapsulated on Interface, the groups sixth album (and second with the stripped-down trio featuring drummer FRANCOIS AUGER and keyboardist PATRICK GAUTHIER). Interface is a sonic tour de force where Heldon avoids every logical category vis-a-vis infinite climaxes and rhythmic explorations that sound impossibly futuristic. As with much of the Pinhas music from this period, Interface is heavily influenced by the guitar treatments of Robert Fripp (King Crimson), especially those in collaboration with Brian Eno. More experimental than virtuosic, Pinhas applies feedback and a jazz-like looseness to create otherworldly soundscapes. Interface is loud, dark and unrelenting with a maximal approach to minimalism that would go on to inform the cold wave scene in the late 70s. Few recordings are as menacing, although certainly Miles Davis Dark Magus and Lou Reeds Metal Machine Music come to mind. It is Heldons most crystalline work, building to the epic crescendo of the title track. Many fans consider this to be their masterpiece, but more importantly, Interface is a record that will continue to unfold for centuries to come. Includes download card." -Superior Viaduct.

For those of you following our line of releases there will be no need to say that composer, guitarist & electronics innovator Richard Pinhas is recognized as one of Frances major experimental musicians and is a pivotal figure in the development of electronic rock. This third delivery of Heldons works was first released on Disjuncta in 1975 as a double LP and features Richard Pinhas (ARP & VCS3 Synthesizers, guitars, bass, Mellotron) and George Grunblatt (Mellotron, guitars) plus contributions from some other greats of the genre like Patrick Gauthier (ARP synthesizers), Gilbert Artman (of Lard Free fame on drums), Jean My Truong (also on drums) and Ariel Kalma (Indian Harmonium).

Title: Yume
Format: CD
Label: Unseen Music
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Yume takes its title from the Japanese word for "dream" and delivers an otherworldly ambient-electronic hybrid thats cinematic in scope yet intimate in emotion. In making the album, composer and multi-instrumentalist Keith Kenniff (the sole artist behind Helios) has created a warm sonic tapestry from luminous guitar lines, elegant piano work, ingeniously-crafted rhythms, and lo-fi electronic elements. Though Kenniffs graceful maneuvering of mood and tone lends Yume a journey-like quality, the album offers pieces as captivatingly disparate as "Pearls" (which blends heavy beats and lilting piano melodies; cascading guitar riffs and airy atmospherics) and "Embrace" (which closes out the album with a glimmering expanse of sound). Built from both electronic experimentation and live instrumentation, Yume also constructs its richly-detailed textures by drawing from a repertoire of sound that ranges from toy tambourines to serendipitously-recorded environmental noises. Raised in rural Pennsylvania, Kenniff put out Helioss 2004 debut album Unomia while studying percussion at Bostons Berklee College of Music. Since then, hes released five more albums as Helios, in addition to collaborating with his wife Hollie Kenniff in the shoegaze-inspired pop duo Mint Julep and composing music for such clients as Paramount Pictures, Apple, Facebook, and Google.

Side two is broken up into more readily digestible pieces, an d showcases Ms. Hellers ability to coax sounds out of clarinet, guitar, theremin, keyboard, castanets, and tapes, all to varying degrees of effect. A track like Vestigial Digit features some low-in-the-mix guitar laid under a wigged and sinister keyboard quiver. Phosphene Damage on a Primal Wave harkens back to the tapestry of side one.

"Hellvete is one of the three members who founded the Flemish Funeral Folk collective and a key figure of the satanadelic combo Sylvester Anfang II. Similar to the mothership, his solo work spans from folk-inspired guitar drones to minimalist keyboard esoterica. The significant difference is that his solo songs are more composed and less improvised. De Gek (meaning The Fool) is an epic trip through the different zones of the Hellvete Empire: layered guitar eruptions mix in with modern classical orchestration and dark folk tales. Influences such as Stephen R. Smith and Manuel Göttsching result in abstract sound narrations, that might just as well make one think of medieval folk or Rock In Opposition. On this debut LP all the aspects of what has been baptized the Belgian dronevolkscene culminate in an extraordinary exploration of the Self: a sonic exorcization of old demons and a return to the nostalgic peace of the country side. De Gek is a new interpretation of the modern psychedelic idylle. The Rochefort 10 of the new Belgian guitar folk tradition." - Kraak.

"Helm is the ambiguous solo moniker of London-based sound architect Luke Younger. Although, perhaps best known as one half of the pioneering avant-drone outfit Birds of Delay, it is in the more esoteric work of Helm that Lukes art takes on its most radical shape. 2010s debut LP To An End confirmed that in an age of fleeting trends and fly-by-night fancies, there were still a few old souls prepared to knuckle down and deliver the goods that people want to receive. Cryptography carries forward that noble mindset, presenting a new five-part suite of expertly rendered electro-acoustic study. Using processed piano, Casio MT-40, cymbal and guitar strings Cryptography steers the Helm sound through a melange of fringe territories: glacial drone meditations, reconfigured gamelan clusters, and howling walls of organized feedback, all coalesced in classic UK post-industrial fashion. Indeed, had it been conceived of 30 years prior, it would be easy to imagine Cryptography winning a seat in the United Dairies, or Dom America catalog, such is its commitment to homemade exploratory zeal.

"Impasse is a sideways journey into the archives of London-based artist LUKE YOUNGER, aka HELM. Conceived six years ago in the wake of a BIRDS OF DELAY tour, the album originally saw the light of day in an abridged version as a mini-CDR on the Low Point label in 2008. This remastered and expanded reissue has the two original tracks along with two others from the same sessions that remained unmixed until a couple of years ago. Impasse appears as somewhat of an anomaly in the Helm canon when viewed alongside recent live performances and his work for labels like Pan and Kye. Where other works explore the mystery inherent in everyday sounds and acoustic phenomena, Impasse is significantly brighter in tone. Consisting of four loop-based pieces, the record invokes the same fantastic worlds found in Terry Rileys or Boyd Rices early ambient pieces. Picture a functional family vacation, an explorer at the apex of his endeavors, a 4:00 AM drinking session with new liquids discovered. Bright corners, euphoric angles and ecstatic drones come together for an emotionally charged high that reflects these unique moments in the human experience. The beauty of Helm lies in its implacable curiosity, the way his music observes the current state of being. Released in a limited edition with artwork by GRAHAM LAMBKIN, Impasse is another sublime offering from one of the UKs sharpest cats." - New Images.

"Impossible Symmetry is the third full length record by Helm, the project of London-based artist Luke Younger. It marks a new chapter in the artists canon as its his first to be informed by live performance rather than studio experimentation. The recording and engineering was primarily a solo venture, with some technical assistance from John Hannon on a few tracks. Most of the compositions were created out of ideas/improvisations that were conceived in a live context and then fed back into the studio work. The album was recorded over the duration of a year in London with source material culled from acoustic sound sources in a similar methodology to his previous album, Cryptography, while also simultaneously incorporating more extensive use of electronic elements and moments of rhythmic dark ambience recalling the outputs from early Coil and Cabaret Voltaire to even Traversable Wormholes industrial minimalism. His last LP, Cryptography, presented a five-part suite of expertly rendered electro-acoustic study which uses processed piano, Casio MT-40, cymbal and broken guitar strings. Younger creates a world where these instruments morph into spectral rust, a shimmering klang swims alongside passive noise and the relationship between acoustic and electronic derived sounds forms a solid foundation. This sound is steered through a mélange of fringe territories: glacial drone meditations, reconfigured gamelan clusters, and howling walls of organized feedback, all coalesced in a post-industrial fashion with a commitment to homemade exploratory zeal. For the past ten years, Younger has also performed extensively in Europe and the U.S. with Steven Warwick as pioneering avant-drone duo Birds Of Delay. The LP was mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering, pressed on 140 gram vinyl and comes in a poly-lined inner sleeve.

The LP was mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering, pressed on 140 gram vinyl and comes in a poly-lined inner sleeve. It is packaged in a pro-press color jacket which itself is housed in a silkscreened PVC sleeve with photos by Traianos Pakioufakis and artwork by Kathryn Politis and Bill Kouligas." - Pan.

Title: Olympic Mess
Format: Double LP
Label: Pan
Country: UK
Price: $27.00
Pressed on 140-gram vinyl. "London-based experimentalist Luke Younger (aka Helm) returns to PAN with Olympic Mess, a record born of destructive practice, competing desires, and troubled optimism. Where his previous effort, 2014s The Hollow Organ (PAN 050EP), dealt in dense, distressed sonics, Olympic Mess is Younger responding to a period spent engaged with loop-based industrial music, dub techno, and balearic disco. These musical references, all of which can induce hypnotic states and feelings of euphoria, inform ten evocative aural landscapes that unfurl over the course of an hour and act almost as a counterpoint to the turmoil that spawned them. "Its about exploring a perverse desire to pull the rug from under yourself, and the struggle to achieve a healthy equilibrium between ones personal and artistic lives," Younger says. "Dealing with the problematic consequences of pushing your own limits, forming and dissolving relationships, transient lifestyles, physical and mental exhaustion, excess, and other kinds of personal chaos." Crafted using an array of heavily processed samples, found sound, and electroacoustics, personal conflict manifests in "I Exist in a Fog" and "Outerzone 2015," in which visceral noise disintegrates into veiled, ambient strata. The disquieting crescendos of "The Evening in Reverse" and "Fluid Cloak" offer no such relief, while the title-track and "Dont Lick the Jacket" are mineral, multilayered abstractions twisting around a brittle pulse. Following a period of extensive touring throughout the States and Europe, which included 20 dates in support of Danish punk group Iceage, Olympic Mess was recorded in London, New York, and Berlin by Sean Ragon, Luke Younger, and John Hannon. The album is mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin. It features photography by Kim Thue and artwork by Bill Kouligas.” - Pan.

“Rawabet is a live album from Helm documenting a special performance that took place alongside Maurice Louca in front of a sold-out audience at the Rawabet Theater in Cairo on October 22nd, 2015. This document is also a snapshot of a period of pan-continental touring which took Helm from Egypt to Austria and then to Canada in three days. During these shows, material from his recently released Olympic Mess album (PAN 063CD/LP, 2015) was re-imagined, expanded, and performed alongside new and "other" material, to add an alternative perspective to the original recordings. What ended up being performed in Cairo on October 22nd owed a lot to the energy of the city and the superb recording and mixing job by Khyam Allami. Rawabet can be seen as the definitive live document of Helm to date.” - Alter.

Label: Pan
Country: UK
Price: $19.00
"PAN presents four vital concrète incursions by nether field-traveler Luke Younger aka Helm, marking his first transmissions since the studio rituals that birthed his highly-acclaimed Impossible Symmetry and Silencer releases. The Hollow Organ toes a deliberate line in the mud between his previous transgressions and a chokingly dank realization of his most untoward, paralytic sound. Poised as a dark interpreter between the grotesque and the transcendent, he activates research gleaned from his petrifying live performances coupled with an increasingly squalid and visceral palette of anguished machine voices, sub-zero drones and bone-scraped rhythmic noise to divine, unearthly space somewhere between semi-legal horror soundtrack and hyperstitious surreality. Its opening gambit, "Carrier" is the most succinct and uncannily ambiguous; perilously close to Gas-like ambient pop but rescued from serenity by manic tape spool and an excoriating, demonic vocal. The vortex of "Analogues" proceeds, ploughed by stereo-twinned engines of churning tape loops to a pitch-black, eschatological climax, and "Spiteful Jester" feels like the unshakable onset of a panic attack, ratcheting the intensity with a blank-eyed, stoic method. For ten minutes "The Hollow Organ" drains last with an unnerving, quiet blood-letting of carmine iron drones evaporating ferric overtones while percussions clank in your blind-spot behind the screen." - Pan.

Artist: HEMATIC SUNSETS
Title: Aroma Club Paradox
Format: LP
Label: Dekorder
Country: Germany
Price: $18.00
"Hematic Sunsets is an alias (an anagram to be exact) for German Soundartist Asmus Tietchens from Hamburg. Tietchens is a self taught artist with more than 50 LP and CD releases on numerous labels (Nurse With Wounds United Dairies, Sky Records, the Mille Plateaux sub-label Ritornell, Staalplaat, Selektion, recent albums on Richard Chartiers Line label and a massive reissue series on Die Stadt, to name but a few). His solo works are mainly concerned with the manipulation of concrete sounds and (most recently) pure sine waves (on his Mengen series) and their placement (assemblage?) in time and space. While his solo efforts are often austere formal works (yet never lacking a twisted humour),Hematic Sunsets is a different beast altogether. Reminiscent of his Sky-era attempts with rhythm and melody, the Aroma Club series is Tietchens warped, almost parodic (per)version of lounge music. Each record of the series is based on the sounds and rhythms of one particular (preferredly cheap) organ/keyboard, usually a Yamaha product (this time its the PSR 36). While the last Club LP was recorded with several guests (Felix Kubin, Michael Rother...) and the 2007 X-mas 7" was a collaboration with long-time "producer" Okko Bekker, "Aroma Club Paradox" is another solo effort (collaborating with several fictitious anagrams/characters though). The result is a timeless and completely unique take on muzak using cheap keyboard sounds usually associated to drunk wedding bands or your grandmothers home organ family music. Tietchens elaborately transforms the cheesy associations into cold, bloodless, almost unhuman pop tunes totally lacking the sensationalism and pseudo-fervour of most music, especially modern pop music. Limited edition of 500 copies in baby blue heavy vinyl!" - Dekorder.

Price: $14.00
"Multi-instrumentalist, band-leader, and composer Sid Hemphill (1876-1961) was for decades the musical patriarch of the Mississippi Hill Country. He and his band -- comprised of Alec Turpentine Askew, Will Head, and Lucius Smith were fixtures at dances, picnics, and frolics throughout the right triangle formed by Memphis, the Delta, and the Hill Country. This LP features Alan Lomaxs first recording of Blind Sid in August 1942, near Sledge, Mississippi, where the Hemphill band was appearing at a country picnic. By that date hundreds of commercial records had been made of the music of the Delta, and the preponderance of those were of or relating to the blues form, with guitar or piano accompaniment. Lomaxs recordings were the first made of the Hill Countrys local music, and contributed to a broader perspective of black vernacular instrumentation with their inclusion of the fiddle and banjo of the string band, the fife and drum ensemble, and the cane panpipes or quills. This music is wild & loose & of a style seldom heard. Includes liner notes insert by Nathan Salsburg." -Mississippi.

“”She has created a sound that reliably taps into our subconscious and frees us from linear time" --The Quietus. Catherine Christer Hennix (born 1948 in Stockholm) is an artist, poet, composer, and philosopher with a strong interest in logic and formal music theory. In late-1960s Sweden, she was a pioneer of experimenting with mainframe computer-generated composite soundwave forms, and in the 1970s she was a key protagonist of the Downtown School along with La Monte Young and Henry Flynt, with whom she has collaborated on numerous occasions.

"2nd pressing with new lower pricing. After the limited art edition quickly sold out, The Electric Harpsichord is now reprinted -- in its complete form -- in a new elegant white boxed edition. Known to the very few, The Electric Harpsichord is possibly THE obscure masterpiece of early American minimalism. Recorded live in 1976 after many years of study under the guidance of Pandit Pran Nath and La Monte Young, it has finally found the perfect home in the Die Schachtel catalog, now in an elegant white boxed 56-page book+CD edition, that gives the work the space and merit it deserves as a unique work of art, complete with two poems by La Monte Young especially written for this edition, and an extensive essay by Henry Flynt. An improvisation performed on just intonation-tuned keyboards put through time-lag accumulators similar to those used by Terry Riley, Hennix has produced one of the most remarkable pieces of music to emerge from the La Monte Young school of minimalism. A Sweden-born composer, who studied in the tradition of Xenakis and Stockhausen in the 1960s, Hennix met La Monte Young and Hindustani raga master Pandit Pran Nath at the Nuits du Fondation Maeght festival in 1970, and pursued studies with both men during the 1970s. While the use of the time-lag in Rileys works such as "A Rainbow In Curved Air" results in an experience of blissful, focused, samadhi-like calm, Hennixs drone work has more in common with the chaotic fluxes of psychedelic experience or the mandalas of Tibetan Buddhism. This is a moving eternity, a pulsating, shifting-something like a raga perhaps, insofar as a raga is a specific deity invoked into sound, fluttering inside the matrix of the drone. Catherine Christer Hennix: keyboard and custom sine wave generators. Recorded live at Moderna Museet, Stockholm, Sweden. Mastered by Giuseppe Ielasi." - Die Schachtel.

MICHEL HENRITZIs improvised guitar-playing is the real surprise here, with its curiously cinema-conscious restraint, hovering around the perplexing intersection of an imaginary Giallo scored by Morricone and the calm brunch entertainment at a grim eastern European cafe. Quite a deviation from the "glorious, unholy racket" of his vinyl-noise trio. JUNKO, meanwhile, colors the foreground with her trademark bird-getting-strangled-by-a-dentist-on-a-chalkboard vocals (say whatever you want, comedian, shes heard it all before) but here shrieks with almost zero adornment, to the point where she achieves an unusual variation on repetitive minimalism.

However, in their undying quest to push the boundaries of conventional music, members soon took out their machetes and began hacking a new trail into an unmapped wilderness of sound. The band was thereby also staunchly anti-commercial, never compromising their sound to please anyone but themselves, and it is precisely because of this that they have gone on to influence so many musicians on the outer fringes of rock & roll on both sides of the Atlantic, particularly the NY experimental music scene." - Recommended/Goodfellas.

"Pierre Henrys 1953 Veil of Orpheus is the first example of symphonic musique concrete, the use of non-traditional sources and real sounds like trains, dogs barking, footsteps, etc., in place of actual instruments and then electronically manipulating these sounds in new ways. It was originally composed for the opera Orpheus 53, which was written with movement founder Pierre Schaeffer for the Donauescliingen Festival. Despite the quantum leaps made in the field of electronics over the past 50 years, this initial experiment still manages to convey its original importance. The piece uses concrete sounds much in the same way a traditional orchestra would use individual instruments. Besides two versions of Veil of Orpheus (the original 27-minute version and the second 15-minute version used in the Maurice Bejart-Pierre Henry ballet Orpheus in 1958), there are two shorter pieces -- Entity and Spiral -- which evoke an unsettling search for meaning that is so often associated with Henrys work." -Doxy.

Title: Maléfices
Format: LP
Label: Cacophonic
Country: UK
Price: $26.00
“Cacophonic presents Maléfices, an outstanding film score by Pierre Henry, often overlooked in lists of the composers work. The score is a dream record for fans of early electronics, female vocal manipulation, and horror soundtracks. Widely recognized as one of the original sonic architects of the movement known as musique concrète (having joined Pierre Schaeffers initiative as early as 1949), Pierre Henry was arguably the first musician to entertain the notion of this defiant musical revolution coexisting with traditional and popular music. Initially using the media of modern dance and spoken word as a platform to contextualize his tape-music mutations (notably in unison with Maurice Bejart), Henrys fusion of academic with thematic ideas led to the birth of electronic sound design for film and theatre, exemplified most prevalently in the macabre. His score for Henri Decoins 1962 film Maléfices (Where the Truth Lies) (starring Juliette Gréco) is the missing link between his earliest avant-garde recordings and his later celebrated pop experiments with Michel Colombier and Spooky Tooth. It rivals such cinematic sound as Daphne Orams work for Jack Claytons 1961 horror film The Innocents, and features Henry at what is perhaps his most melodic, fragile, and enchanting (especially for this unforgiving, formative era in his career). Layering vocal tape loops and gossamer feminine voice treatments with plucked strings, white noise wind, and brooding, industrial treated piano textures, Henry magnifies the films intoxicated, hallucinatory narrative. This concise set of complete themes is presented here, fully remastered for the first time, alongside rare excerpts from two of the composers very earliest and least obtainable forays into theatrical sound design: instrumental parts of Henrys first stereo reconstruction of Maurice Bejarts 1961 ballet Orphée, and his seldom-heard concrète interludes from Darius Milhaud and Max Gérards opera Mariage de la Feuille et du Cliché (1958).” - Cacophonic.

Metallic parts, mirrors, lights and sounds emanating from a 50-meter building interacted with the environment and visitors.

So it is obvious that there have been quite a few albums by him and in cooperation with other artists not necessarily from the field of music. LOccident Est Bleu/LAn Cinquante-Six features sound contributions by Pierre Henry, and spoken word performances by popular French actors Michel Vitold and Silvia Montfort based on two texts by fellow actor and singer Claude Pascal. It can be seen as an audio book rather than a regular music record backed with sounds. All the texts are performed in French and they focus on dark themes. The musical part of this album is also quite intense with a haunting atmosphere, droning and disturbing at times. The drone and musique concrète aspects show the roots of what should become cosmic music in the late 60s and early 70s performed mostly by artists such as Tangerine Dream. And indeed there are a few moments here that remind me of the classic Zeit (1972) by Edgar Froese and his mates. A sound experiment, a twisted and creepy manifestation of weird thoughts in something that is loosely connected to music. A challenge for sure, but if you love the obscure and have a heart for avant garde music you are welcome to this first ever reissue of a long time vanished record. Includes two bonus tracks." - Aurora Rising.

Title: Pierre Henrys House Of Sounds
Format: Hardcover Book/CD
Label: Gilka
Country: Norway
Price: $52.00
"Since 1971, Pierre Henry has lived and worked in one of the remaining buildings in the Picpus area of Paris. Not only the composers workshop, a place to create music, his four storey house is a true museum of sounds, objects and assemblages put together by this genuine innovator. In addition, with the audience seated in separate rooms, the house occasionally serves as a venue for concerts generously conducted in his own home.
The book is a meeting between the camera of Bergjord, who seems to track the invisible through the object, and this oneiric world created by Henry in his house. The result creates its own imaginary structure, moving room by room, like a visit in the house, from macro close-ups to overviews. A seemingly endless flow of photos � accompanied by a CD with previously unreleased pieces by Henry." -Gilka.

"One of the most gifted abstract sonic pilots from the Vacationland stable, Portland, Maine, artist MATT LAJOIE enjoys a larger-than-Sasquatch reputation for his free folk personality and unpredictable takes on Spectrasound techniques. Although he and his merry band are one of the most charismatic tribes of the New England underground-you gotta see them live-they blossom from psychedelic occurrences that lead to bursts of pacifist oblivion which can only be redeemed inside their studio output. The momentum Lajoie deploys in his polar expressions indicates a supply of time-manipulated balance. An accretion of bucket brigades warping wildly at first breath, generally considered a condition of primitivism, this is searchlight abandonment with purely spirited jams more akin to the tapers pit than slam continuance. In fact, the only thing slammed here (other than the muted poetry echoing like buoys in Golowins harbor) are the in the red meters on fire signs from fire music providing ease with earth, wind and air. Long may we inhale.

"December 2009: Inspiration dependently arising; Blows Against The Empire in one hand, Admiral Richard Byrds secret diary in the other. Days after returning to Maine after three heavy months on the road, Matthew Lajoie (Cursillistas) awoke one morning having dreamt the existence of a lost 1973 private press concept record about the exploration of inner Earth and the advanced civilization thriving at its center. Agartha; Shambhala: the domain of the Arianni. Using Byrds account as the thematic framework for the album, he feverishly poured forth a representation of the dreamt record, writing and recording the entire LP in a single 24-hour period - guided by sonic Ouija. The result is a cosmic antenna with dials tuned to the Planet Earth Rock & Roll Orchestra, obscure psych-prog spacecasts, and classic rock radio, all refracted through the dusty, cracked and scratched Cursillistas prism.

"Heresy of the Free Spirit is a trio comprised of Dutch lute player, Jozef Van Wissem and Brooklyn based multi-instrumentalists, Che Chen (of True Primes) on violin, bowed rawap, bass recorder, percussion and tape machines, and Robbie Lee (of Howling Hex, Baby Dee) on portative organ, bass recorder, guitar, banjo and electronics. Using early European as well as non-western instruments and electronics, the trio plays arrangements of Van Wissems lute compositions as well as free improvisations that draw on early music, folk traditions, minimalism and noise. Fully utilizing the extended techniques, unique textures and tuning possibilities of their unusual instruments, the trio use both repetition and silence as ways of entering trance-like states. Their record, A Prayer for Light is a radical re-imagining of early European and American primitive music in which the sources are stretched and re-purposed to accommodate free improvisation, extended, repetitive song forms, and tape manipulations." - Incunabulum.

"As the essential PERE UBU rhythm section from the 1970s through the early 1990s, SCOTT KRAUSS and TONY MAIMONE collaborated during Ubus early 1980s hiatus as HOME AND GARDEN, where they blazed their own trail of avant-rock-not without some assistance from Clevelands art-rock creme de la creme. "Flim Flam" was originally written by Krauss and JIM JONES (during the sessions that yielded Pere Ubu songs "Come Home," "Kathleen" "Last Will and Testament," and "Fedora Satellite II") although it was never submitted to Ubu for consideration. Its appearance here, with Jones on guitars and keyboards, and KEITH KORNAJCIK handling the vocals and lyrics, is the first. On the flip, "From Blake" showcases the guitar, bass, and sax talents of founding Pere Ubu guitaris TOM HERMAN (who also led the avant-rock power trio TRIPOD JIMMIE with Len Bove).

"I was pretty impressed right off the bat by the artwork and lo-fi promo material sent along with this. The kind of aesthetic and attention to detail usually reserved for high school notebook covers or Dungeons and Dragons character sheets. Then you notice that this was actually recorded at Used Kids by Mike Rep?! I thought that was odd, but after you listen to this you realize it does have whatever you want call the Columbus "vibe", which is just another way of saying this is music made by weirdos. Semi-inept garage-rocking with a heavy metal influence. The Gizmos if they wrote songs about swords and sorcery instead of muff diving and partying? Early Rep/Jay catalog if they were more concerned with horror movies and fantasy novels instead of Lou Reed? Midnight doing Penetrators covers? Only in Ohio, Ill say that for sure. Mid-tempo rockers with dum-dum riffs, an eccentric singer who actually pulls this shit off sounding great and just goofily enough to make you really like his style. Backing vox are wonderfully dumb as are most if not all of these tunes. Rep gets the most out of these guys, making it sound just cruddy enough, guitar is solid, drums have just the right trashy sound, bass holds it all steady. There are at least ten songs here I love out of fourteen, which are all listenable at the very least. "A Quarter Werewolf" is the hit, "Zombies Gots To Eat", "Witch" (not a cover), "Welcome to My Grave", "Wormhole", all winners. "Rock Assassins" is their tough guy statement, and Im a believer. Loner-outsider-whatever garage-punk rock, this thing is really likeable for obvious reasons. I dont think theyre trying really hard to be funny-dumb here, I think theyre just trying to kick ass and fucking succeeding at it, with maybe a few laughs along the way. Id buy this on vinyl in a second, as long as they include the lyric sheet and band photo (pictured), which are very entertaining in their own right. Another one of those bands you could mistake for a KBD-punk classic if you didnlt know they were modern. Recommended to the highest degree!" -Rich Kroneiss, TERMINAL BOREDOM (Review of the CDR version from earlier this year).

Artist: HERRERO, VICTOR
Title: Astrolabio
Format: LP
Label: Feeding Tube
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"The Portuguese guitar is a kind of weird instrument. It has a teardrop shaped body, twelve strings, an odd tuning scheme, and is generally associated with the mournful Portuguese musical style called fado. Its not often used as an improv instrument, especially in avant-garde settings, but that was before Victor Herrero got his hands on one. Probably best known for his work with Josephine Foster, Victor is a Spanish guitarist and composer, whose work ranges from very traditional to beyond contemporary. On a trip to Lisbon a decade or so ago, he and Ms. Foster became enthralled by the glittering tone qualities of the Portuguese guitar, and decided to go halves on one. A lot of wood-shedding and investigating various musical forms ensued, as the guitar traveled around Spain and then the rest of the world with the pair. It was used as part of a show with Keiji Haino in Japan. It figured into a recording session with some of the Master Musicians Of Jojouka. It was noted performing duets with saxophonist Sonny Simmons. And so on. Removed from its parochial context, the instrument showed itself to be an incredibly limber and adaptable axe. Astrolabio is an album of solo compositions and improvisations for Portuguese guitar that defies easy classification. Its tone is so bright and folky it almost sounds like a hammered dulcimer in spots, but Jean Ritchie would probably keel over if she heard this record. At times, Victors playing emphasizes the ethereal beauty of the strings natural vibrations, but he can also create insane rafts of sound with Northern African rhythms crossing swords with chunks of string sound as mysteriously fried as anything ever done by Loren Connors. Totally boss, and unlike anything weve ever heard before. Prepare thyself to deal..." - Byron Coley, 2016. Edition of 500.

"Hevoset is the duo of two of the most enigmatic individuals of the Finnish Underground, namely Jan Anderzen and Jani Hirvonen, both hailing from Tampere. Anderzen is ringleader of a mysterious multitudinous beast known as Kemialliset Ystävät (Fonal Records), a part-time member of Avarus and Islaja and records solo as Tomutonttu (Ultra Exzema, Beta-Lactam Ring Records) with a new album coming out on Dekorder this year (hopefully). Hirvonen is best-known under his Uton monicker with two LPs on Dekorder and a stream of releases on Last Visible Dog, Digitalis, Ruralfauna, Jewelled Antler, Pseudo Arcana and his own Ikuisuus label. While most one-off meetings between so-called experimental and improvising musicians often sound like bad excuses for a few beers and endless jams this is quite the opposite - a heavy weight championship finale of two like-minded whizkids cross-fertilizing each other with idea after idea, leading to some of the weirdest and quixotic recordings you will have heard of the two. Everything you loved about Kemialliset Ystävät, Uton and Tomutonttu is contained in Hevoset.....and more. Rural psychedelia, out-of-tune plucked and strummed strings, overloaded organs and effect pedals, Jani Hirvonens sweet wordless vocals, ecstatic improvised drone collages, bells, backward loops, jungle percussion and tons of unidentifiable sounds and noises shaped into tight 4 - 6 minute tracks." - Dekorder.

While he is a current member of WHOS YOUR FAVORITE SON GOD and PRINTS, HEXLOVE is Nelson all by himself going nuts. Nelsons enthusiastic mania is not just in the realm of Keith Moon-ness but as a multi-instrumentalist who channels Dennis Wilson, Neil Michael Haggerty, and post-Vision Creation Newsun Boredoms, and combine it all and play it off like it was mixed by Tod Dockstader.

I dont know, maybe Vangelis and Klaus Schulze get fed each others good vibes and then, oh yeah, the realness of the sound and a weight or extreme heaviness. Walls, sheets, large tarps of these good vibes get spun by a sampler dish of Sunroof-esque absolute humnburn clatter, completely searing, straight-up whopper, and somewhere around the near edge of celestial submerged polyorchestral non-existence emersion into microshard peaks of looping bucolic, stoney walk-on-the-water synth(?) fragment melody permeation you -- eventually, no matter where you are -- youre pretty much lost in a mellow excitement/familiar space I think someone whispered my name - type deal.

Artist: HEXLOVE/FAULOUAH
Title: Free Jazz From Slavery
Format: Double LP
Label: Weird Forest
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"If one were dim enough to go about explaining the new double LP from Hexlove/Faulouah by pointing up parallels between it and the future-thinking music which has surely influenced its creator, I imagine the task wouldnt be too daunting. One may first notice that Free Jazz From Slavery is awash in the sublimely complex percussion patterns of 20th century composers like Harry Partch, Eugene Kurtz, and Iannis Xenakis. Or one might wonder if Zac Nelson, the man in the cockpit of this thing, hadnt been listening to Another Green World since he was in the womb. And certainly it wouldnt be a stretch to say that the jibing spirit of early-80s Pere Ubu experimentation is all over the more flippant efforts like Dont Say I Didnt Warm Yah and the watery blurb that opens the record, Aztec vs. Dolphin. This, though, is the wrong way to go about listening to or talking about any of Hexlove/Faulouahs work. Musical ancestors are worn proudly on Nelsons sleeve, but as eagerly as he celebrates them, he also delights in taking them, along with himself, down a peg. The snarky punning of the albums title, the faux-shamanic chanting and cooing, the deliberately murked-up and buzzing arrangements, all belie an agenda that involves not only a glad embrace of the less austere reaches of avant-gardism but a pointed critique of its elitism and intellectual posturing. Tracks like the doom-laden Lots of Wings Carry Seeds, which pulses like the metabolism of some slumbering extinct beast, display a staggering sense of grey beauty but are quickly undercut when Nelson begins to take a more blithe and self-deprecating tack. This, though, is not to the records detriment; it never falls into mere novelty or self-parody. The sheer technical brilliance, evident on every track, earns quite a big spot on Nelsons cheek to put his tongue in. The most glorious moments, though, are those in which he is able to marry these two tendencies, as on the desperate and busy Grump up the Volume, which opens the second side of the first record. And this is just the first record. All doubts that may have been lingering about Nelsons seriousness or capabilities vanish completely after even the most cursory listen to the second record. Alone, it is a startlingly focused and beautiful ambient masterwork, but it shines all the more when it is coupled with the chaos of the first record. The long, breathing pieces are tranquil and meditative, yet never naïve or on the look-out for a place in The New Age. Under every track, however, spare and delicate, lurks an anxiety that constantly threatens to swallow all delusions of well-being. Though it drones and broods, it is never without texture. Alive with the haunting organ of Exits Very Damp or the subtle xylophone flourishes of Big Happy Lotus, it manages to maintain a clean, coherent spirit without becoming sterile or devolving into massage music. The side-long closer and centerpiece of the album, Psychopomp, though, is as sparse and heavenly as music gets, but it still attains such a raw human beauty that after you hear it, the last thing you want to do is lie down for a massage. Rather, you want to run out and find the human who created it and thank him." --Steve Rodgers

"Kye is proud to announce the release of Rules Of The Universe, a fully authorized anthology of archival audio work by the renowned Dutch artist Anton Heyboer (1924-2005). Heyboers stature in visual arts is well known and internationally celebrated, but documentation of his audio work is scant and difficult to locate. Heyboers only previous vinyl release - 1976s ill-fated She And She As One LP (EMI) introduced a music so resolutely personal and uncommercial in nature that EMI ordered the unsold bulk of the pressing withdrawn and destroyed. Further recordings of Heyboers anomalous music eventually trickled out via a string of private press micro-edition CDs/CDRs through the Anton Heyboer Foundation in the 1990s. Released with full approval from VOF Heyboer and overseen by Lotti Heyboer, Rules Of The Universe draws from over seven hours of surviving archival tapes, restoring the cream of the CDR editions and supplementing it with a selection of previously unheard tracks. Rules Of The Universe offers a fresh reappraisal of a lesser-known - but no less important field of creativity from one of the 20th Centurys most original artistic minds. Rules Of The Universe arrives in a full color high gloss gatefold sleeve, with an accompanying fold-out color poster, in an edition of 500 copies." -Kye.

They opened for Rush at Randys Rodeo, then managed to get plum slots opening for Sammy Hagar, Van Halen, Be-Bop Deluxe, Golden Earring, Budgie, Trapeze and Rick Derringer. The music video for "Video Madness" made it onto MTV—but was then unceremoniously banned. "Heyoka, like Ultra in San Antonio... really should have made it but didnt," concert promoter Jack Orbin says. "I think they were ahead of their time musically. They were progressive metal, and thats what exploded out of San Antonio. They were innovators." The music is reminiscent of Jethro Tull and Kansas, but retaining a unique quality all its own, evoking Native American imagery under the mystical guide of Black Elk.

Recent live shows include a performance on sine wave generators at the Planet Cafe, and another using portable keyboards at the Builders Arms. The band began playing in 1997, and released their first cd Nega the Eight-Headed Serpent on the Varispeed label in 1998. To make their new cd, HGP collected live and studio recordings over a period of two years, then spend a year chopping them up and mixing the bits together. About seven hours of material was distilled into 35 minutes of cutup / remix hell, spread over 13 tracks on the cd. The disc also contains a video, for playing on a computer. The footage is from a recent play by Julian Williams, which was performed in 2001 at a car park at the Collingwood Housing Estate." -Spill.

"The No Wave era of NYC was a short, dark flash of energy that was extinguished almost as soon as it was noticed. It happened so goddamn fast that if you missed the imaginal cut-off for inclusion by a few fucking weeks, you were forever written out of the picture. Believe me. Thurston and I wrote the book on this goddamn scene, and the Hi Sheriffs were just outside our temporal markers, despite the fact theyd played Tier 3, the Mudd Club and everywhere youd think would matter. But look, they were as second gen No Wave as the Raybeats, the Bush Tetras and Eight Eyed Spy. If you have to ask why that was, and why such things were a matter of weeks rather than anything else, I dunno what to say. Its just how it was, and we all knew it. Shit moved fast. The fact that the Hi Sheriffs were devolved from the Girls -- the BEST band Boston ever birthed, as well as the only non-CLE band to ever record for Pere Ubus label, Hearthan -- did not mean shit. They were perhaps only weeks too late to make the No Wave cut (something theyd immediately wanted to hit after the Girls played Tier 3 with Basquiats band, Gray), but hey -- even Gray is a tad late for my taste. Still, musically, this quartet -- Mark Dagley and George Condo from Bostons Girls, Seth Weinhardt and Beth Fowler from RISDs Bachelors Of Art -- blew my mind. I first saw them at Tier 3, and they were like a crazed version of DNA playing the blues. Mark brought the first single up to the NY Rocker office a while later and Andy recognized the cover he was doing, but I assumed it was all just blown brain originals. Little did I know. This album is mostly made up of pre-first single live and rehearsal stuff, and it is just the sort of raw madness everyone wants to hear all the time. Even Lydia Lunch liked em. She did not record with them until later -- not long before shed begin her Devil Dogs project -- but even she knew she was beyond No Wave at the point of Eight Eyed Spy. It was a weirdly specific scene in many ways. But sonically, it bore lots of fruit. And one of the first, best and most blues-wailingest of its proponents was the Hi Sheriffs Of Blue." --Byron Coley; Includes a download card. Edition of 500.

Price: $17.50
"ZAJ has always been located close to the limits of the arts, the music, the theatre, the writing, the word, the object, the body. This has conducted to stay at the borders of the traditional artistic circuits, of the institutional spaces and, curiously enough, of the official vanguardias (fluxus, wiener aktionismus, etcS?). Since 1964 ZAJ organise several festivals and premiered most of the compositions of Walter Marchetti and Juan Hidalgo. They also invited other composers including the devastating performance of Fontana-Mix-Feed by Max Neuhaus in 1965 and a reading of Bernard Heidsieck in 1967. They privately issued 5 ZAJ-books: Juan Hidalgo Viaje a Argel, 1967, and De Juan Hidalgo, 1971; José Luis Castillejo La Caida de lAvion, 1967, and La Politica, 1968; Walter Marchetti Larpocrate seduto sul loto, 1968. But they never produced a recordS? And here it is, the first ZAJ record ever issued: Una Voz, written by Juan Hidalgo, read by Javier Martinez Cuadrado and recorded by Walter Marchetti who also added some music by opening the windows on Paseo de Santa Maria de la Cabeza. An evening in Madrid on September 1967. As Juan Hidalgo wrote for the liner notes: I spent about 10 years reading, hearing and meditating, outside, around and inside Zen Buddhism. Una Voz, this repetitive vocal music, couldnt have been conceived without these circumstances. This metaphysic work developed in the years I was living in Italy; first in Milan and then in Rome. Walter Marchetti and John Cage supported all this with their knowledge and friendship. The final result is a reflection on life, non-life, pain and pleasure. This project has been coordinated by Walter Marchetti who strongly wanted this LP to be the first ZAJ record. This edition also includes a 16 pages booklet (size cm. 30x30) with the complete Spanish text (first published in De Juan Hidalgo) and the English translation. Edition of 323 copies." - Alga Marghen.

Educated by house legends Adonis and Steve Pointdexter, hes been following a singular musical path, producing a gritty futuristic meltdown of house, free jazz, new age, and noise. For this record, Jamal worked with the concept of plants having a religion, and the question of what their way of worship would be. This resulted in a dark, deep-space overture with raw synth stabs, extreme pitch-shifted textures, and hypnotic tribal rhythms somewhat reminiscent of Sun Ras interstellar electric keyboard explorations. Le Jardin des Chemins Bifurquants is an unclassifiable tour de force that is oozing with profound cosmic meaning. Artwork by visual artist Robert Beatty (Hair Police)." - audioMER.

Title: The Thousand Symphonies
Format: CD
Label: Alga Marghen
Country: Italy
Price: $20.00
"Alga Marghen presents the first edition ever issued of Dick Higgins music. Fluxus founding member, in 1958 Dick Higgins studied Composition and Experimental Music with John Cage in his class at the New School for Social Research in New York together with, among others, La Monte Young, Richard Maxfield, Toshi Ichiyanaghi, George Brecht, Allan Kaprow, Al Hansen, Jackson Mac Low. In the Spring of 1968 Geoffrey Hendricks and Robert Watts told Dick Higgins of a project that was afoot at Douglass College, where both were teaching at the time, to organize a show around guns. At that time the USA police seemed to have nothing better to do than to chase down teenagers for possessing miniscule amounts of marijuana and throwing them in jail, thus ruining their lives. Dick Higgins decided it would be more worthy if one could set all the policemen in the USA to composing symphonies themselves. So he proposed that the beautiful music paper be machine gunned and that symphonies be derived from the result. Geoffrey Hendricks arranged for Captain Toby of the South Brunswick Police to do this, which duly happened with a 9mm MP40 Schmeisser submachine gun, filmed by Alison Knowles. A volunteer orchestra, conducted by Philip Corner and including Charlotte Moorman, performed nine of the resulting symphonies at Douglass College on December 9th. The Douglass concert was taped, but the only copy disappeared when the Ars Viva! Gallery in Berlin, Germany, went bankrupt in 1984. The whole situation was documented with photographs in Source Magazine in 1970. As Philip Corner, conductor of the recordings presented here, said: Leave it to Dick Higgins to come up with the most spectacular way to generate a page of patternless notes. Once over this dramatic gesture with machine-gun bullets leaves a stack of paper full of holes. I had not thought of this before but there must have been a conscious connection to the social turmoil of the 60s - all too unfortunately, come back around to high relevance these days. First press limited to 500 copies with digipack sleeve, also including a 16 page booklet with full documentation presenting 2 texts by Dick Higgins from the 1960s as well as a Philip Corner testimony, original photos and original scores." -Alga Marghen.

Title: A Dream A While Back

Price: $13.00
"GARY HIGGINS is back from the time-space continuum with previously unheard moments from his storied past. Way back in 2005, Drag City reintroduced his 1974 psych-folk classic Red Hash to listeners around the world, who were acutely touched by Garys carefully-arranged, darkly utopian songs. Since then, Red Hash has been widely recognized as a classic of its time. Since then, Gary has played shows around the U.S., something that he was unable to do in the mid-70s when Red Hash came out, due to incarceration on trumped-up drug possession charges. It was a good feeling, playing his songs for people who were moved by them, so Gary decided to record some new ones, and in 2009,his first new recordings in over thirty years were issued as the album Seconds. His sound was neither revisited nor updated; natural evolution had occurred and the songs were unmistakably Gary Higgins; older, and different, yet unchanged. Fresh from his trip to the present, Gary is back in the past for this EP of songs, all of which were written and recorded circa 70-71, in the same time that the songs that would form Red Hash took shape." -Drag City

This is the first-ever authorized reissue of Red Hash -- direct from the original master tapes. The Red Hash CD includes two unheard bonus cuts and never before seen artwork/photos.

"A brand new solo release from legendary poet, painter, Jews harpist, tattoo artist, and singer and lyricist of LUNGFISH, THE PUPILS and CONE OF LIGHT, DANIEL HIGGS. Higgs has an unparalleled presence in both body and voice, and this, combined with hypnotic repetition, gives the material on Ancestral Songs both a loose discipline and an immense yet serpentine power. Ancestral Songs is comprised of apocalyptic tunes, a banjo raag, mellifluous birdsong, and the sci-fi-sounding duet of a searing Jews harp and toy piano. "Are You of the Body?" brings out the electric tamboura tone and an accompanying acoustic guitar to melt the spine. A distorted motorik guitar riff propels Ancestral Songs to a close by focusing on the consistent tone and vibration that flows throughout the album." - Holy Mountain.

"Part 1 of The Fools Sermon as composed by and recorded by Daniel Higgs. Features Eli Winograd on bass and bass keyboard and Fumie Ishii on drums & voice and Higgs on banjo and voice. "Daniel Higgs once told me that the Earth is actually in its 34th life cycle. That everything has been conceived, created, grown, withered and ultimately been destroyed a grand total of thirty three times to date. As for quite how long this ourobouros-esque pattern will continue, he never enunciated. For enunciation is at the very heart of The Fools Sermon. Or I should say Ee-nun-see-a-she-on, as language in the hands of Higgs becomes a play-thing; syllables coil and retreat as if in eternal competition over the course of this 35 minute address. Anyone versed in Higgs vocabulary over his 30 year-plus career as musician, poet and orator, The Fools Sermon will feel like a worthy distillation of his other-world view: a raw vision of the sacred and the profane, the physical and the metaphysical, The Proterozoic and the present. At points, the results conjure a Flannery OConnor penned pulpit-bound preacher elucidating as a huddle of Tribe Records personnel channel Amiri Barakas Black Dada Nihilismus; at others the narcoleptic exotica of Eden Ahbez shakes hands with Blind Joe Death. One imagines Gene Roddenberrys Captain turning his attention to the Philosophers Stone, to boldly go where no man and everyman has been before and forever will go again." -- Anthony Sylvester, 2016.

"The Measure of Mystery" was recorded (by Fletcher Tucker of Bird By Snow & Yurt) on cassette tape in Big Sur, California in the late night hours when the 29th of October was gradually becoming the 30th (2011). Song flowed forth from Source in a circular redwood room perched just above a waterfall, which itself flows steadily toward its own source (the Pacific Ocean). You may observe the sounds of both ocean and river on these recordings...and a closer listen may also reward you with the sounds of starlight, mycelium growth, molecular revolution, and an untold number of cosmic musics. This tape is a 45 minute magnetic fossilization of Daniel Higgs energy field. It is divided between three tracks of epic proportion: a revelational instrumental banjo improvisation, an entheogenic song performed on banjo and larynx, and an ecstatic mythopoetic recitation. Fans of Daniels previous albums are surely aware that an exceptional recording of "Say God" already exists, this new incarnation however is nearly twice as long with over 100 verses! Truly an awesome artifact, offered to you in the hope that it will inspire awe. Photcard by Fumie Ishii. This volume of Echomancy is represented by the symbol for the planet Mercury." - Gnomelife.

"First live High Rise album on PSF since the still astounding peak of Live (PSFD-48). Seven tracks, fifty-two minutes. If theres anyone that doesnt already know, High Rise were where it all started. A group that boiled down improv, the hardest psych, the fastest punk into an injectable shot of accelerated adrenaline. The group were source of the first psychic rumbles to reach the West, indicating that something quite remarkable was happening in the Tokyo underground. Without High Rise there would have been no PSF (the acronym stands for Psychedelic Speed Freaks -- the groups early moniker and the title of their debut album), no Musica Transonic, no Mainliner... This latest release features the group live in New York and Seattle on their most recent US tour, before an adoring audience of speedfreak boneheads (maybe youll even hear yourself hollering louder or faster). Surprisingly, the trademark Nanjo production aesthetic has been toned down a notch, leaving the splattered acid genius and tonal control (!) of Naritas solos the most evident theyve ever been. Nanjo and ex-White Heaven drummer Koji Shimura are as poundingly heavy a rhythm section as you could wish for. But its the guitar where it is at: theres still nothing quite like Narita kicking open the throttle and tearing into a manic solo, leaving shit-eating grins to eat dust in his wake..." - Alan Cummings.

Label: Not Not Fun
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Pyramidal meditationist High Wolf has been highly active since last summers Animal Totem tape dropped on NNF: hes released three full-length CDRs, started his own record label (Winged Sun), begun a mail-collab with Astral Social Club (as Iibiis Rooge), embarked on two UK/Euro tours (one with heavyweights Gnod), plus trekked out on a month-long solo journey through India to collect field recordings and get deep. Whoa! Makes you feel lazy right? Well actually thats not all, as he also spent a few months somewhere in there recording, mixing, and re-recording the five multifaceted ethno-flux odysseys that comprise Ascension, his debut vinyl full-length. Utilizing his usual toolbag of looped tablas, fuzz guitar leads, chiming white light guitar, synth swells, and cloud-climbing electronics, the album safaris through a host of ecstatic ritual landscapes with more focus and magic than any other High Wolf hunt to date. A beautiful album for dissolving, dreaming, dancing (in a certain way). Been spinning this one weekly, share the flight. Black vinyl LPs mastered by Pete Swanson and housed in jackets with artwork by Kaugummi Magazine captain Bartolome Sanson. Edition of 400." -Not Not Fun

Title: Atlas Nation
Format: LP
Label: Holy Mountain
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Frances HIGH WOLF possesses a natural-born ability to produce tones most conducive to inducing transcendental states. Prolific without wearing out his welcome, the guitarist and effects box manipulator sets loose fervid streams of fever-dream drones. High Wolfs tracks sound as if theyve been sluicing since the beginning of time, siphoned for teasingly brief absorption before they shimmer off to the vanishing point. This elite droneur is one of the few musicians who could title a 7-inch A Guide to Healing without it coming off as an ironic gesture or a laughable boast. Atlas Nation-recorded in 2010 after a long trip to India and Nepal-deepens High Wolfs penetration into the mystic. It evokes an uneasy peace with a new breed of tribal psychedelia shorn of all hokey signifiers. "Fuji Descent" starts the album with what could be a languid, paradisiacal soundtrack to a scrapped Alejandro Jodorowsky film. "The Dawn of Man" is a stark, stoned processional burrowing into malarial climes where guitars squawk in ominous tongues while congas cave in chests and clear brush with a vengeance. "Raagini" magnifies and psychedelicizes Rapoons mantric, ritualistic hand-drum patter and tropical-forest drones while hinting at Don Cherrys jazz-raga peregrinations. High Wolf claims that "Haiti" was "recorded in a couple of hours [on] the day of the big earthquake in Haiti, so its the darkest / saddest High Wolf track ever." Its a fittingly miasmic, climactic threnody. Think of Atlas Nation as a surreal aural travelogue that takes a giant step beyond Jon Hassells "Fourth World" music-a humid milieu teeming with alien tonalities and oracular currents. Its as welcome as a new, improved entheogen on the streets." - Holy Mountain.

Price: $15.00
"French globe-tourist HIGH WOLF has hand-rolled his way up Mount Fuji, trainspotted every corner of Europe, hitch-hiked across America and Australia, chugged Ganges water, and crouched on all manner of smoke-stained prayer rug since first looping a bongo back in 09. His apprenticeship in the House of Wah nearly complete, hes hinted at a potentially seismic shift in the High Wolf third eye doctrine lurking in the near future; perhaps his Away Team exfoliation moment is nigh. Fortunately, Not Not Fun has coaxed the astral jungle jah concoctions of Kairos: Chronos out from the ether, because this LP is the summation of his entire half-decade Amazon Cosmos quest. All the tenets of the High Wolf mythology are in place: humid hand-percussion heat-spells, coiling snake-charmer fuzz-guitar stacked six deep, sunlit synth textures, dubby bass-lines thumping through grass amps, ceremonial voodoo babble, etc. From the hidden temple hymn "Kulti" to the thirteen-minute self-beheading solar eclipse shakedown, "Alvarado," the record represents rarified proof of The Wolf on High.

Title: Attic Demonstration
Format: CD
Label: Kebrutney
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Kenneth Higney was a struggling singer-songwriter when he cut Attic Demonstration in 1976, a demo record of such massive outsider vision that it dropped straight into the void, as well as the deep pockets of a band of committed record collectors. Initially intended as a calling card to help him get his songs covered by other artists, Higney soon branched out into selling the disc as an actual album, placing low key ads in a couple of NY papers and sending out a bunch of review copies. Only Trouser Press took the bait, saluting Attic Demonstrations "cross between Lou Reed and Neil Young without the aid of melody." Now officially available for the first time, Attic Demonstration is one of the most endearing and intensely human real people discs to turn up for a while, boasting Modern Lovers-styled road ballads sung with a Jagger-esque snear and propelled on pegleg rhythms that would do The Shaggs proud, through meandering tonal wastelands where Higneys eye-wateringly unarmoured vocals are supported by minimal chord patterns that progress according to the position of the stars. Best of all is the addition of both sides of Higneys funk/punk tribute single, where he namechecks contemporaries like The Dead Boys and Johnny Thunders and rhymes "dirty downtown bar" with "the sissy music of John Denver". Almost too good to be true." - David Keenan; The Wire. "New Jersey open wounds real person basement psych damage strums with buzzfuzz bursts. mix of Spencian floaters and warped rhythm ravers. At times sounds like 1/2 Japanese doing Cale-era Modern Lovers outtakes. way lost no-fi monsterdom..." - Ron Moore. Official CD reissue of this 1976 classic. Includes tracks from his 1980 7" release.

"Often considered the Holy Grail of "real people" records, Kenneth Higneys "Attic Demonstration" was never actually intended to be an official release. It was recorded in New York City by Higney and his accompanist Gordon Gaines (R.I.P.) as a vehicle with which to sell Higneys songs to other artists and was only pressed to vinyl in 1976 when he grew tired of duplicating cassette tapes. Apparently the Jandekian dissonance of the "A. Demo." sound was an unintended by-product of the one take demo sessions. Be that as it may, "Attic Demonstration" is a strange sonic world all of its own. It is neither too weird to be unappealing to "regular" music listeners nor is it one of those "discoveries" that leaves you wondering what all the hype was about. Acoustic guitar ballads of nearly atonal desolation mix readily with rock n roll numbers featuring hiccuping drums and alien sounding electric guitar. Hingeys vocals are by turns sneering and mournful as he sings about lost love and the desire for fame all filtered through his uniquely bent worldview. Although a few ads were placed for the record in The Village Voice and The Aquarian, the fame that Higney sought eluded him (a semi-positive review in Trouser Press notwithstanding). That is, until the album was discovered and distributed by record dealer Paul Major. "Attic Demonstration" has been featured in the Acid Archives and copies of the original LP have soared in price over the years, but you no longer have to pay $100, $200 or even $300 to obtain a copy of this monumental album on vinyl.

Format: 7"
Label: One Kind Favor
Country: USA
Price: $6.00
"Official reissue of Kenneth Higneys 1980 private press 45rpm single. Compared to "Attic Demonstration," the recordings are much more polished. Synthesizers and "pop sensibility" have found their way into Higneys music, and the more I listen to it, Im convinced this could have somehow taken the world by storm in some sort of post-No Wave context. Dont get me wrong, this is still incredibly strange stuff, with Higney triple tracking his vocals in different registers. "Funky Kinky" is an especially unique come-on to a lady and "I Wanna Be The King" is an "ode or tribute, whatever youd like to call it, to the NYC punk scene of Maxs Kansas City and CBGBs in general and Johnny Thunders (the "King") in particular," according to the artist. "I wanna be the king, I wanna play guitar. I hate the sissy music of John Den-var." Higney goes on to say:
In June of 1980 Kebrutney released a seven inch single of "I Wanna Be The King" b/w/ "Funky Kinky." This was my shot at being a performing writer and these were my first recordings done with the intent of being released to the general public. They were not demos. My thinking was to release a "double A side," which was reflected by the catalog numbers on the label: "KBH-516RAS" for "I Wanna Be The King" was the rock ("R") side and "KBH-516FAS" was the funk ("F") side. A monster record which drowned in the swamp after being chased by the villagers." -One Kind Favor.

Title: Pacific Fog Dreams
Format: LP
Label: Root Strata
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"Over the past few years Higumas Evan Caminiti (of Barn Owl) and Lisa McGee have slowly evolved their sound from shamanistic acoustic dirges into shimmering metallic blast-off hymns, hair-raising eulogies to the cosmos. Pacific Fog Dreams is a set of seven such songs, all beautifully distant and drenched in layers of earth-toned echo, balanced in dream time between melodies and all out electric whitewash. Delayed strums hang in a beyond background, a ghost world of songs from some other place and time, channeled onto the hiss of a cassette tape to remind you. Caminitis guitar is often on the verge of taking the whole thing down, sporadically billowing into colorful feedback, huge blocks of impenetrable sound. McGees vocals are sometimes discovered, but just as distant smears, or riding the peaks, coaxing out phrases of hidden origin, maybe singing of intimacy, memory, nature or magic." - Root Strata.

"Immediately after the release of the Chiswick single, Jeff Hill recruited drummer Dave Buckley (ex-Moonshine, who recorded a 1976 EP titled TOO YOUNG TO LOVE ME) and bass player Ray Humphries: the Jeff Hill Band played their first gig in Burtonwood on October 19. A few demos were taped in Warrington on November 26, two days before entering Londons Pathway Studios to record a second 7” for Chiswick which never saw the light of day. In the second half of 1978 a deal with Rabid Records was negotiated and two tracks were taped at Cheshires Revolution Studio on February 19, 1979, with Steve Hopkins (k) as guest musician and Andy Mac taking production duties. Rabid planned the release of a single then decided to include the two tracks on a compilation album: both projects were eventually aborted. Undeterred, the Jeff Hill Band decided to found their own label, Balloon Records, and self-financed the pressing of 500 copies of a 7” housed in a cartoon picture cover with a Ramonesy drawing of Jeff wearing a gabba gabba hey badge. The record emerged on December 20, 1979, and is worth tracking down, though it is quite hard to locate: its two Punk/Powerpop songs are enjoyable efforts with the A-side SOMETHINGS WRONG WITH MY BABY arguably being the better track. Plagued by sparse distribution, sales were minimal causing the combos demise after a final gig in Warrington on April 19, 1980." - Sing Sing.

Format: LP

Country: Germany
Price: $20.00
Interpreted by Holger Hiller and Thomas Fehlmann. "In 1930 the German composer Paul Hindemith (1895-1963) wrote a series of small pieces for school orchestras. It was described as a play for children depicting the construction and survey of a modern city. The unusual thing about it is the age of its inhabitants: In our city the grownups have no say... Our mayor is seven years old, and all uncles and aunties are children. Even the traffic warden is a child. We Build A Town comes across as strange in more than one way. Firstly, as a bizarre alternative blueprint to an elderly society. Secondly, as a combination of constructivist music and antiquated-modernist lyrics. These lyrics reflect traits of naïve belief in progress and open repression. Half a century after the original was created, two German artists with a punk and new wave background reinterpret the play and release it in 1981 as a cassette tape on Ata Tak, a label based in the German city of Düsseldorf. The classic orchestration of the original is replaced by synthesizer and manipulated voices. Apart from that, the original score is strictly adhered to. The use of electronic instruments and voice effects not only gives new life to the futuristic character of the pieces, but also subtly hints to its origins in the world of adults. Like the flame of a burning fuse leading to a bundle of explosives, the tape wanders through the childrens bodies and back into the heads of the grown-ups." - Gagarin.

Germinating from the same love of the Space Rock-Krautrock axis that brought forth Wooden Shjips, Expo 70, and forefathers like Hawkwind and German Oak, Hills inhabit a low gravity, groove-oriented plateau of guitar-heavy psych that at times ventures into the same Eastern territories that UK guitar-slinger Rick Tomlinsons explores in his Voice of the Seven Thunders project.

Title: Red Riding: In the Year of Our Lord 1980
Format: LP
Label: Blackest Ever Black
Country: UK
Price: $30.00
"Blackest Ever Black presents the first vinyl edition of Dickon Hinchliffes original score for 1980 -- the second part of Channel 4 and Revolution Films Red Riding trilogy, adapted by Tony Grisoni from David Peaces quartet of novels and first screened in 2009. Each film in the Red Riding trilogy, a landmark achievement in British television history, was helmed by a different director and had its own distinctive look, sound and feel. While Julian Jarrolds 1974 and Anand Tuckers 1983 were both marvelous, well-rounded pictures, James Marshs 1980 -- photographed by Igor Martinovic on 35mm -- somehow seemed to penetrate deeper, hit harder, and linger longer and more vividly in the memory. Described by Tony Grisoni as "an elegant steely trap," 1980s tragic arc is all the more devastating for the glimpses of lightness and redemption with which it taunts its hero -- policeman Peter Hunter, played with astonishing grace and nuance by Paddy Considine. Warren Clarke, Maxine Peake, Peter Mullan, Tony Pitts, Jim Carter, David Morrissey, Sean Harris, Shaun Dooley and Lesley Sharp also figure in what surely ranks as one of the finest British ensemble casts ever assembled. So yes, the acting, writing and direction are all first-rate, but crucial to the mesmeric, elegiac and ultimately pincering, punishing effect of 1980 is its music, composed by Dickon Hinchliffe and performed by a small string ensemble augmented with bass, piano, guitar and percussion. A founding member of Tindersticks, Hinchliffe has played a major role in the bands scores for the films of Claire Denis (including Vendredi Soir, Trouble Every Day and Nénette et Boni), and since flying the roost has established himself as an arthouse and Hollywood composer of considerable renown, with credits including Forty Shades of Blue, Project Nim, Winters Bone and Rampart. Even more eloquently than Paddy Considines note-perfect performance, Hinchliffes music for 1980 articulates Hunters journey from righteousness to ruin, his optimism gradually consumed by dread and paranoia. Even at its most tender, its most hopeful, its most soaringly romantic, the stench of death is all over it." -Blackest Ever Black.

Go Hirano (piano, pianica, glockenspiel, accordion, windchimes, thumb piano, percussion, voice, etc). "Its been a long time coming, but Go Hiranos stunning new album has finally been released. Hirano is known as a sometime White Heaven collaborator, renowned expert on Canadian psychedelia and acid folk, and ultra-sensitive sound artist. His previous two albums on PSF have wound lo-fi wisps of fragile piano melody and bell chime around nagging, sometimes subtly unsettling field recording techniques. Corridor of Daylights resurrects the absolutely exquisite instrumental palette of his second, Reflection of Dreams (PSF 071). It is a dreamy walk along insubstantial, lysergic paths where all-too breakable souls breathe shallowly and insects hum in sympathetic resonance. An almost flawless album of touching late-night psychedelics." - Alan Cummings.

Id almost be tempted to use the word ambient to describe a lot of this album, but that word has become particularly debased of late... and besides, there is a quality of surreal, dreamlike naivete to Hiranos works thats thousands of miles away from most purveyors of fleaty textures... puzzling, but good." --Alan Cummings.

Jojo Hiroshiges howled declamations and metallic scoria guitars chisel these old Enka ballads into something more monstrous while Malenkovs flamenco arpeggios bandage torn lace around Shiriashis voice. Shiraishi recorded these songs in Uramado, a small kabuki-cho bar haunted by the ghosts of the Tokyo underground. Wandering through the streets of this floating world, one gets re-acquainted with those long lost voices of Enka. This document is only a superficial incision into the exquisite corpse of the Japanese underground, a body of work where traditional and modern musical lines converge and take their rest, having now been cast into oblivion by the relentless changing trends. Enka music is deeply anchored in Japanese society and still remains influential today among those who frequent Karaoke bars where singing is the preferred language." - An Archives.

"Man o man, is this what it is like to give birth? The puppy was conceived last year and, through much pain and language snafus, it is finally being birthed. So what does this little monster sound like? Ahhhh lets go back in time to 1983 and a place called Europe where tons of DIY bands were releasing their take on gloomsters like Joy Division, Crisis, and the Cure. The sounds were a bit more primitive than that Holy Trinity, and also rawer and wilder. Fast forward to now and that sound is currently being tapped into by Frustration and now HIS ELECTRO BLUE VOICE, a mysterious trio from Lake Como, Italy. Much more emotive than their Paris cohorts, fronted by a semi-unhinged, charmingly incoherent vocalist, HEBV teeters on the edge and twists into odd deconstruction of their songs.

Artist: HISS GOLDEN MESSENGER
Title: Haw
Format: LP
Label: Paradise of Bachelors
Country: USA
Price: $23.00
"Comes in a tip-on jacket with full color inner sleeve and digital download coupon. Haw, herein, is an album of eleven songs about family, faith, and an ill-prophesied future, an artifact almost as archaic, lovely and seldom heard today as directional commands for beasts of burden. M.C. Taylor, who wrote these songs, once lived hard by the Haw with his wife Abigail and their son Elijah ? Well I come from the bottom of the river Haw, he sings -- but he doesnt live there anymore. Having followed the slipstream to the relative bustle of nearby Durham, North Carolina, he has composed a new clutch of tunes that conjure the half-remembered dreams of peace promised by our pasts. Taylors writing and singing here achieve a tenebrous clarity, invoking -- and occasionally challenging -- a intermingling cast of prophetic characters both sacred and profane: Daniel, Elijah, the Apostles, and the Son of Man, sure, but also the Peacock Fiddle Band, Mississippi John Hurt, and by implication, Lew Welch, Waylon Jennings, Michael Hurley, and our friend Jefferson Currie II. Say whatever prayer you want: to Jehovah or Yahowah, or Red Rose Nantahala. More than ever before, the supporting players of Hiss Golden Messenger feature as tellers of the tale. Each episode earns a meticulously turned ensemble statement." - Paradise of Bachelors.

Artist: HITCHCOCK, STEVE
Title: Sheet Tape 1978/1979
Format: LP
Label: Vinyl-On-Demand
Country: Germany
Price: $22.00
"Steve Hitchcock (currently known as Ferrara Brain Pan) began experimenting with music and art in early 1977 as a freshman-year university student in San Diego, where he edited and published five issues of a Neo-Dada mail art zine called "Cabaret Voltaire". While active in mail art, he corresponded with Genesis P-Orridge and Cosey Funni Tutti of COUM Transmissions and Throbbing Gristle and thereby became involved with the early Industrial music movement. During the years 1977-79, he created these experimental solo recordings using elements including shortwave radio, television, turntable, metal percussion and found sounds. These tracks can be classified with confidence as early Industrial Music (with elements of humor that might invite comparisons to H.N.A.S. or Nurse With Wound). The artist was heavily influenced and inspired by the music he listened to as an American teenager during the 1970s, such as free improvisation, Krautrock, classical avant-garde, electronic music, early punk and noise. It was in San Diego during the time of these recordings that Steve Hitchcock got into a long-lasting friendship with Boyd Rice and Robert Turman. In 1977 Boyd and Steve recorded and performed on a few occasions as a duo, and when Robert got involved the project adopted the name of Moving Targets. Steve left the group soon afterwards, and Boyd and Robert moved to San Francisco where the twosome issued the very first NON recordings. Prior to Moving Targets, Boyd Rice and Steve Hitchcock collaborated on a cassette of experimental sounds entitled This Priceless Recording which was included in an international Audio Art exhibition at a Gallery in Switzerland. Extracts from this tape and the Pre-NONProject can be heard on the Boyd Rice/NON 5-LP set. This LP is a Must-Have for every serious fan and listener of early Industrial music.

Artist: HITE, BOB
Title: Dr. Boogie Presents Rarities from the Bob Hite Vaults
Format: LP
Label: Sub Rosa
Country: Belgium
Price: $15.00
"This is the first volume of a collection devoted to rare and lost recordings from the 20s to 60s. These rare pieces span the years 1941-1958 and are taken from Bob Hites fabulous collection of 78rpm records: a historical archive that has helped to, in its own way, save from oblivion the rural bluesmen who had dropped out of the scene decades ago and make possible their reintegration into musical history. Everyone is now entitled to hear this chunk of the treasure. Compiled by the famous DJ Dr. Boogie with the help of Fito De La Parra (drummer for Canned Heat). Bob Hite, founding member and singer of the unforgettable group Canned Heat, owned one of the most impressive collections of U.S. 78rpms. He started gathering these records at a very young age and always dreamed of being in a boogie band and paying tribute to the pioneers, drawing inspiration from all the greats who set the foundations for blues music. Before he joined the band, he was already working in various record stores in Venice Beach, and through the years he came to acquire extraordinary items -- mostly thanks to the success of the 33rpm, which quickly replaced the 78rpm format. Bob Hite never stopped expanding his collection; he bought records all around the world. He was known to throw huge parties at his house, where he spent hours, sometimes whole nights, unveiling gems from his collection. After Bob Hites death, the fabulous collection was decimated, partly sold, dismembered, and even plundered. Now the public is privy to pieces of his exquisite archive of forgotten greats and lesser-knowns, such as Pete Johnson: a boogie-woogie expert and one of the first piano legends, or Clarence Brown, whose majestic guitar playing and recordings for the Peacock label remain unmatchable. Elmore James makes an appearance with some of his more obscure tracks, as well as Mad Mel Sebastian, who remains a complete mystery. Other artists include: Eddie Hope, The Hot Shots, Earl King, Googie Rene, Chuck Higgins, Johnny Otis, Bill Haley, Otis Rush and Etta James." - Sub Rosa

"Weird dudes jamming synths. Alone. Social Problems. Problems. Recorded late into the night. Fucking A. That is the business, right there. Check Ze Wormnest or Matthew Young for bleary eyed-no-fan sound destruction. Shit is just creepy-gets under your skin. While most noise youth get their chocolate fingers lost in gadgetry and posturing-something about a synth jam thats just.... Human ... humanly wrong. But fucking right. Right on Hive Mind. Out of some strange comic miasma emerged this hulking thing known for playing in corners or under black sheets with short fingers churning out cosmic tales of bass heavy sheets of molten alien sound cut with xray pirate eyes. Dude is some serious Michigan shit. This sound-injecting terrorist is crew to all the like minded and total jag-off MI underground weirdo brethrens. I think he soaked his pyramid genitals in ice cold antifreeze to get where Death Tone lives in underwater-cave life. Jamz are just lurking around your chest buzzing like a Mike Tyson bee until a nuclear war-spear goes directly into your chest leaving your breath exchanged for Korean X-Files future creature Autopsy scenes. Ive been to Roswell, shit is creepy, even at Pizza Hut, mid day. None of my crew jamz synths, some dabble but dont have the slomo overbite terror vision of my man Hive Mind. Isnt your jellied brain a fucking hive? Mine has a really big queen in the center telling me to keep watching The Thing (remake) with the sound off in a super warm birth room while listening to Death Tone on a dying Walkman. I dont listen to the queen, or take advice. Me and my man the Kid thought all Hive Mind needed to hone in his awesome social synth prowess was to be locked in a room with Richard Pinhas for a year on a diet of nothing but snake burritos-but again-no one listens to advice, especially a homeboy. Psychotic drugs, cheap beer, shorties, the Roach, assholes, hung over at work... yesss, heroes to the High Life." - John Olson.

Title: Elemental Disgrace
Format: LP
Label: Spectrum Spools
Country: USA
Price: $21.00
"Elemental Disgrace is an album that needs to happen now. Finally, the next phase has arrived -- a stunning double side-long record of some of the U.S. best underground synthesizer music. Whatever rise to the synthesizer came later on in the 00s is hardly of any concern to Greh Holger and his Hive Mind project. Having released private press cassettes of solo synth works as far back as 2002, Hive Mind exists as enigmatic in the world of new-jack synth-heads and the tidal wave of "neo kosmische" flying far under the radar. The silence is now broken and here we are treated to some of the most unique sounds Spectrum Spools has yet presented. No blisscapes to be found here. No soaring latched arpeggios, no cosmic vistas. Not a single melody. This is two sides of ancestral ruin in its clearest and most focused presentation. The brutality of the Earth and the harsh reality of all that it holds. Unknowable sounds -- that of the dawn of the Earth, or perhaps the sound of its demise. A toxic swamp of chemicals and mutated creatures left behind long after man has wiped himself away for good. Field recordings from the end of the world. While others are racing for the stars, Hive Minds tectonic plate-shifting and brutal rumble will give you a brand new way to look at modern synthesizer composition. With a focus on textural sounds and shifting frequency registers, this album gives the listener a full range of listening possibilities with infinite replay value. Its worth noting that Spectrum Spools as a label would not exist without Hive Mind. An inspiration and a pioneer in the U.S. synthesizer circuit, its with pleasure and honor that they release Elemental Disgrace into the world. Cut at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin August 2011." - Spectrum Spools
