Artist: I SAW IT ALL HAPPEN FROM BEGINNING TO END..
Title: Life Everlasting, Amen
Format: CD
Label: Firework Editions
Country: Sweden
Price: $13.00
""I Saw it All Happen from Beginning to End and I still Cant Believe What I Saw" are Jeff Sedgley, from Brighton, England, and The UK Ambassador of Elgaland-Vargaland. The piece is a comment on the state of the health of the world. We are sick and we know it, but are helpless to act, as technology removes our potency and undermines our responsibility and our ability to make critical judgements. The listener/viewer is presented with a recording of a life support machine and its relentless quest to keep the patient alive and in doing so becomes part of that patient, attached by tubes through which the fluids of life pass, pumped by a metal heart into one made of human tissue. This symbiotic relationship is a metaphor for the relationship between nature (or organic life) and science (or inorganic). When is the patient of nature or of science? At what point are we becoming less than human and more a part of the machine? The recording from which this CD is taken is over 6 hours long; it was mixed and mastered at Thors Place, Brighton, England on November 18th 1999. The original version was recorded in England and mixed in Stockholm in 1998 - with thanks to Andreas Karperyd. The full length version was played live on an octophonic audio system throughout the day as part of Sonic SeaAir in Brighton, May 1999. " - Firework Editions.

Artist: I SIGNORI DELLA GALASSIA
Title: Iceman
Format: LP
Label: Medical
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"Medical Records presents a reissue of the very rare and sought after 1979 opus by Italys I Signori Della Galassia. Iceman was released in 1979 and has been long out of print for over 30 years fetching very high prices on the collectors market. I Signori Della Galassia (translated as The Men of Galaxy) is best described as a sonic hybrid of space disco/cosmic meets Italian progressive pop/rock. They were founded in Savona in the late 70s. Played with analog gear such as a variety of synthesizers as well as traditional guitar and drums. It is a very rich and diverse LP with multiple interesting twists and turns. The opener Proxima Centauri is a space disco odyssey with super-catchy synth melodies over driving disco beats mixed with hypnotic passages. The title track Iceman is a fusion of Italian pop and space disco which makes for an interesting combination. Other tracks have a completely different feel with elements of prog and experimental rock overtones. Archeopterix is another standout track with washing synths, warbling filters, and gentle backing vocals. The LP contains two bonus tracks (at the end of each side) which were released as singles at the time (Luce and Eliane). The LP features preserved front cover artwork and slightly modified back cover original artwork (at the artists request). This LP will surely appeal to lovers of Space, Rockets, Kraftwerk, Milkways, and Zodiac. Presented on 180 gram silver opaque, high-quality vinyl in a limited edition of 650 copies." - Medical.

Artist: I-LP-O IN DUB
Title: Capital Dub Chapter 1
Format: LP
Label: Editions Mego
Country: Austria
Price: $22.00
"I-LP-O In Dub is the solo project of Pan Sonic member Ilpo Väisänen. Capital Dub Chapter 1 follows the 2015 debut Communist Dub (EMEGO 203LP) - a year marked by further descent into economic crisis and instability. The usual business cycles of production/distribution/consumption, running alongside macro cycles of boom and bust, have been replaced by ossification, austerity, the machine seizing up. Ilpos "circular riddims" complement the ebb-and-flow of the circulation of money + commodities and are mirrored by his field recordings of Barcelona rain -- the final phase of the cyclical movement of water. But of course the smooth running of "Paradise Capital" is unsustainable. Destroyed techno and open spaces contend with sinister swarming atmospheres. A cash machine flickers. Zeros and ones displace another factory. Dub as decay -- the ghostly remains of tracks eroded by time and technology. The "Invisible Hand" of the market spasms with tremors. Ferocious textural feedback as music for stock exchange crashes. The soundtrack to heaps of money hoarded by the hidden class. Capital is value in motion, but there is nowhere to go. After the collapse, picturesque ruins. Capital Dub Chapter 1 simply asks the question: what next? Influenced by the first part of Karl Marxs Capital (1867). Recorded anytime in there, rain & 808 at Pallars152, Poblenou, Barceloba; Mixed at Juniper & Stone, Kartula, Finland; Mastered at Dubplates & Mastering." - Editions Mego.

Title: Communist Dub
Format: Double LP
Label: Editions Mego
Country: Austria
Price: $31.00
"Communist Dub is Pan Sonic member Ilpo Väisänens second solo album for Editions Mego (Asuma having appeared 2001). This striking new release is a statement against technocracy and the erosion of human community. Whilst Jamaican dub and ska are often cited as an influence on Väisänens work, this album utilizes dub as strategy as opposed to genre -- the precise manipulation of sound and the removal of all extraneous material to create a disorientating landscape of austere spaces. Pulled into a sucking pit of reverb and echo, the listener can choose whether to be pummeled into submission or to reflect on their situation. Väisänens intricate rhythmic structures propel the listener from monochrome machinic matrices to head-wrecking abstraction. The ten track titles hint at failed emancipatory projects of the last century with a nod to the present situation -- Donetsk Disciples: Bolsheviks meeting the farmers (and wiping them out), Benghazi Affair: Libyan connection and arming the forces, but history is taking over. A burning man in Tunisia starts the future. Communist Dub is a ruthless criticism of everything existing, but one ultimately tempered by hope" --John Eden. Tracks by Ilpo Väisänen. Recorded sometimes in here. Mastered by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering. Photos and cover idea by Ilpo Väisänen. Layout by Stephen OMalley. Nation of versions, i-shent recommended. Dedicated to victims of isms." - Editions Mego.

Artist: I.P. SON GROUP
Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Black Sweat
Country: Italy
Price: $26.00
"Black Sweat Records present a reissue of I.P. Son Groups self-titled album, originally released in 1975. Released in 1975, during the mature stage of the Italian underground scene, this only album from the Milanese band led by guitarist Marco Rossi comes off as an experiment rather atypical of that period; The typical jazz sound of that period being exemplified by formations such as Perigeo, Napoli Centrale, Agora, or Arti e Mestieri. I.P. Son Group provide improvisations on suggestions of extra-European ethnic flavor, enhanced by the masterful rhythmic section (without drums) curated by the African percussionists Nick Eyok and Mohammed El Targhi. The result is a complex work, full of nuances, in which the spirit of the free-jam excels on the synthesis of influences and visions. Refined guitar riffs revealing strong blues roots blend with the elements and moods of the most markedly spiritual and exotic free-jazz (Pharoah Sanders, Alice Coltrane or Archie Shepp). Winds are perfumed of the Middle East flow as distant echoes with ideas of tribal rhythms that draw both from the rhythms of the northern Sahara as well as more Afro-beat rituals of Yoruba ancestry. In the background, the poetic persistence of intercultural exchange that approaches the I.P. Son Group is paralleled by projects such as Aktuala, Arica or John Berberian. This reissued edition is enriched with an amazing photo booklet by Aldo Bonasia." - Black Sweat.

Title: The Proper Sex
Format: LP
Label: Social Registry
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"The Social Registry is proud to break your bones with I.U.D. -- Lizzi Bougatsos of Gang Gang Dances (vocals, percussion) new project. Teaming with Sadie Laska of Growing and Extreme Violence (the duo is known here as Mr. Egglesby and Lil Pickle -- they have different names for each release), The Proper Sex is a downright brutal industrial clusterfuck thats sure to fog the glasses of experimental music nerds and provide the catalyst for many a record store argument. Put The Boredoms, Einstürzende Neubauten, Meat Beat Manifesto, Tribe 8, Front 242 and some black metal tropes in a blender and then serve chilled at a party hosted by hyper-feminist vampires and youre getting close to the sound on this one. Recorded at Vacation Island Studios by Matt Boyton AKA Professor Funkenstein, The Proper Sex is creepy, relentless and (most of all) extremely fascinating. Its a varied listen that reflects its influences and cover art -- which mimics Sparks -- to a stunning effect. Like Gang Gang Dance, these rhythms are already cemented in a listeners head. Its just that this journey might be a descent into the inferno rather than up to the heavens. Includes poster of a naked horse-woman." -Social Registry

Artist: I.U.D./BLACK LODGE
Title: S/T
Format: Cass
Label: Trilogy
Country: UK
Price: $12.00
"Poitiers is a town on the Clain River in West Central France. Lots of Visigoths used to live in Poitiers. It is currently home to a permanently stoned gallery called Le Comfort Moderne - a sort of non-profit space for Art and Music, complete with Zine Biblioteque, record shop, bar, and couscous restaurant. A wonderful place that could only exist in a town in Northern Europe. A place that trusts its citizens to take two and a half hours for lunch, get pissed, and make it back to work. It is only a place such as this that an improbable show like Black Lodge / I.U.D. could take place. Or that Black Lodge could come across a first (and only) edition print of Celines highly controversial pamphlet Bagatelles pour un massacre amongst compilation DVDs of interviews with the author. Although, despite the modest asking price of 150 euros, the book remains in the shop. 1 of every 3 people in Poitiers is under the age of 30, and 1 of every 4 people in Poitiers is a student. It has more students per inhabitant than any other city in France. There are more than 27000 of them. Surprisingly few of these students seemed to be at the show. There were two bedreadlocked crust-punks though. They wrote Squat Le Monde! on the toilet wall. They must have been either delighted or appalled to see Black Lodge lay two copies of Shaved Women Collaborators by Crass on three decks, each 7" with bits of sellotape on... I couldnt tell... a tone, a pulse, followed by a warning ("shaved women, collaborators!"). The collaborators in question were I.U.D. The alliance was formed, probably hours previously over couscous and beer. I.U.D. were billed to play separately, following Black Lodge, but given the overall nature of the event, playing together was instantly deemed preferable and appropriate. This recording is the result. At parts, it was as if a mosh pit had been digitally removed from the room." -Oliver Payne

Artist: IA-BATISTE
Title: Un Gran Dia
Format: LP/7"
Label: Wah Wah
Country: Spain
Price: $32.00
"Key duo from the catalan folk scene, result of the union between Ia Clua (from "2+1") and Jordi Batiste (one of the leading forces of Máquina! together with Enric Herrera), after thelater ones return from military service. "Un Gran Día".the duos first album, was recorded at the end of 1972 with the help of such outstanding musicians as Manel Joseph (ex "2+1", Ias early band)), Joaquín "Max" Suñer (Vértice, Tapimán, Iceberg y a neverding etc ) & Albert Batiste(Musica Dispersa). The result is an amazing & varied musical tapestry, best heard in the records first side, a long suite covering from orchestral folk-pop with some psych leanings ("Un Gran Día","Max") to straight in-your-face  hard rock ("Sleeping Rock") via typicalearly 70s prog rock ("Oliba") or uncathegorisable experiments whichdefy all rules ("Reprise")  and show perfectly the freaky stagereached by the catalan scene in its early years (as a matter of fact,the record is sung in english and catalan...). A piece of wax which went totally unnoticed when first released in a tiny pressing back in the days (thus becoming a big ticket item in the collectors market) and which Wah Wah rescues from oblivionthirty years after its original release. An excellent work which deserves to be discovered by a wider public... Limited issue of 500 numbered copies in gatefold cover reproducing the original artwork, including a colour insert, a colour poster and a bonus 7" single w/ one previously unreleased song." - Wah Wah.

Artist: IACOUCCI, GERARDO
Title: Simbolismo Psichedelico
Format: LP
Label: Intervallo
Country: Italy
Price: $27.00
"Gerardo Iacoucci attended the Berklee College of Music in Boston and, later, founded the Scuola Popolare di Musica di Testaccio in Rome, but he is mainly remembered as an excellent jazz pianist. During his long career, the musician born in Veroli, Italy, explored -- with great dedication and talent -- various different music genres and recorded many libraries, many of which qualify as small masterpieces. One of the most famous is Simbolismo Psichedelico, originally released in 1970 by the small Deneb label (home of other heavyweights such as Alessandro Alessandroni, Amedeo Tommasi, Stefano Torossi, and Daniela Casa), and also pressed in France by the St Germain des Prés label with the title Symbolisme Psychédélique. These 11 tracks tirelessly explore the boundaries of an "expressive urge," which is the signature style of a master like Iacoucci. The disturbing atmospheres of "Fantasmi Lunari," the avant-garde drive of "Ipnosi" and "Inibizioni" (two short sketches at the end of the album), and the free mood of "Psicopatologia" are just a few among the best and most essential moments of this gem. There are no limits or fears in Simbolismo Psichedelico -- this is an incredible, and truly hallucinatory, sensory experience. Edition of 300 copies; first-ever reissue; remastered sound." - Intervallo.

Artist: IANNONE, DOROTHY
Title: A Fluxus Essay
Format: CD
Label: Tochnit Aleph
Country: Germany
Price: $23.00
"Tochnit Aleph presents Dorothy Iannones A Fluxus Essay. Audio CD with 20-page booklet. Edition of 270. Recorded in Berlin 1979. Dorothy Iannone tells her Fluxus story. "There, George Maciunas and I looked deeply but impassively into each others eyes, not knowing then that we would meet again on these pages. Perhaps he was thinking, "Who is this woman?". Perhaps it might even have amused him, somewhere far back in his mind, to know that I am she who is the Fluxus woman artist who is not the Fluxus woman artist."
"Dorothy Iannone was born in Boston, Massachusetts in 1933. She attended Boston University and Brandeis University where she majored in Literature. Since the beginning of her career in the 1960s, Dorothy Iannone has been making vibrant paintings, drawings, prints, films, objects and books, all with a markedly narrative and overtly autobiographical visual feel. Her oeuvre is like an exhilarating ode to an unbridled sexuality and celebration of ecstatic unity, unconditional love, and a singular attachment to Eros as a philosophical concept. In 1961 she successfully sued the U.S. Government on behalf of Henry Millers Tropic of Cancer, which until then was censured in the U.S., to allow its importation into the country. She begins painting in 1959 and travels extensively with her husband to Europe and the Far East. From 1963 until 1967, she runs a co-operative gallery on Tenth Street, New York together with her husband. In 1966 they lived for some months in the South of France where she begins a close friendship with Robert Filliou and other artists from Fluxus. She meets and falls in love with German-Swiss artist Dieter Roth during a journey to Reykjavik and will share his life in different European cities until 1974. Two years later Iannone moves to Berlin after receiving a grant from the DAAD Berlin Artists Program. She still lives and works in Berlin, where she pursues her artistic production. Her works narrate the her life in intimate detail, transforming somewhat the feminist discourse of the 1960s, by emphasizing personal freedom and spiritual transcendence through complete devotion to, and union with, a lover." - Tochnit Aleph.

Title: Ewig Grun
Format: LP
Label: Tochnit Aleph
Country: Germany
Price: $30.00
2015 release. Edition of 300. Full-color cover and inner sleeve by Dorothy Iannone. "Dorothy Iannone was born in Boston, Massachusetts, in 1933. She attended Boston University and Brandeis University where she majored in Literature. Since the beginning of her career in the 1960s, Dorothy Iannone has been making vibrant paintings, drawings, prints, films, objects and books, all with a markedly narrative and overtly autobiographical visual feel. Her oeuvre is like an exhilarating ode to an unbridled sexuality and celebration of ecstatic unity, unconditional love, and a singular attachment to Eros as a philosophical concept. "When I was living in France in 1975, I made an audio cassette singing some lines from a famous German song: Wenn keiner treu Dir bliebe, ich bleib Dir ewig grün, Du meine alte Liebe, Berlin bleibt doch Berlin. (When no one stays by you, Ill remain forever true, my old love, you, Berlin will always stay Berlin.) Maybe the song was on my mind because I had just received the news that I had been awarded a DAAD artist grant for the following year. I was home alone that evening and, after painting for some hours, I decided that, since I still had a lot of energy I would make an audio cassette. I set up my simple equipment on the floor by my bedside. I didnt have any particular plan when I started to sing, but somehow, as I went along, I began caressing myself and my voice changed according to my feelings. But yet despite what I was feeling, the discipline was to keep singing those same four lines. The voice itself expressed the stages of sexual arousal. Shortly before orgasm, I was almost completely breathless and could hardly continue repeating the lines between gasps, and then suddenly, as the orgasm began, my voice became really strong and loud, soaring into the air for some moments before subsiding as I, very softly, managed to utter the concluding lines." - Dorothy Iannone.

Title: Supernova

Label: Wah Wah
Country: Spain
Price: $27.00
"With several connections to the early Kraftwerk history and formed in the Rhineland area in 1971, Ibliss was a quintet formed by percussionist Basil Hammoudi (from Organisation, the band before Kraftwerk), drummer Andreas Hohmann (also from Kraftwerk), brothers Wolfgang and Norbert Büllmeyer (bass and guitar respectively) and Rainer Büchel on sax and flute. With the help of Conny Plank, they recorded their one and only LP at Hamburgs Windrose-Studios: four long instrumental tracks in a hypnotic style that takes cues both from the teutonic motorik style and way-out jazz techniques. Kind of a floating cosmic fusion sound with a great emphasis on the rhythmic section. Another great and unknown album from the jazzier end of krautrock (Kollektiv, Thirsty Moon, Annexus Quam, Embryo, Organistaion?). Strictly limited to 500 copies. Quality pressing.

"Tucked away on Snatch 3 (the last of the Snatch Tapes compilations) released in 1981 is a track by Ice Yacht called “0 Degrees North.” An austere piece of drum loop and drone music, there was talk of a full tape having been recorded by the band (?) but no documentation of any further releases can be found. Rumour had it that Ice Yacht had embarked on an ill-fated trip to the North Pole attempting to retrace a journey made by the Norwegian explorer Fridtjof Nansen in 1888. This story was given credence when last year a research group uncovered a cassette tape in a vacuum-sealed case in the permafrost. The tape was marked simply Ice Yacht – Pole of Cold. After letting the tape thaw out it was then baked in an oven allowing the transfer of the recordings. Pole of Cold contains six tracks of analogue electronics seemingly mapping an arctic exploration to the coldest place on the planet though exactly when and where they were recorded is unknown.

The four young (16, 17, 17 and 18 year) gentlemens determination and early awakening has left its mark on their aggressive and high-frequency expression, where something as sincere as �great riffs� dominate the neo-nihilistic soundscape. The drumming is rough and with songs about holes and broken fingers which is a desperate attempt having an otherwise disjointed world making sense.

Instead, Icecross unleash some killer inventive guitar sounds by way of Leslie speakers combined with wild ominous bass lines, frantic drumming, spooky effected vocals and splendid use of bow to create a perfect dark heavy guitar album.

"The brand new parisian label Poutre Apparente is proud to announce the reissue of 90s superb cybernetic electro renewal classic tape from South Corsica band, ICH BIN: Minimal wave beats, broken electronics, radical synthetizer and possessed vocals finely inspired by great philosophical ideas appeared in Europe since the industrial revolution. Colder than the coldest corsican winter, like Kraftwerk meeting Suicide in North Poland. Warehousemen in a secret petrochemical factory in the north of Corsica, the four members of ICH BIN began to play together in 1988 with materials recovered on a failed boat transporting electronic instruments manufactured in Korea. They developed year after year this so particular manner to play and sing probably coming from the physical and mental state of the musicians regularly exposed to a great dose of chemical emanations during their work in factory." - Poutre Apparente.

Country: Japan
Price: $25.00
"The Music for Piano series was written under John Cages influence in his New York years. This CD is the premiere complete recording without simultaneous playing. The series was played and recorded by pianist Takuji Kawai at KEN in Tokyo in October 27, 2012. "Music for Piano No. 1-No. 7" was composed between 1959 and 1961. All the works were written using graphic notations (No. 1, No. 2, No. 5 and No. 6) and instructions (No. 3, No. 4 and No. 6). "This period of my compositions such as Music for Electric Metronomes, Stanzas for String Instrument, Duet for Piano and String Instrument, and Sapporo were all written by graphic notations, which expanded my idea of space in music in later compositions. The premiere of Music for Piano No.2 took place in 1959, performed by David Tudor at Living Theatre in New York. No. 5 was by Yuji Takahashi, No. 4, No. 6 and No. 7 were by myself. This is the first time collecting all seven pieces played open to the public and recorded at the same time. Various techniques as well as different qualities of the sounds were created in an amazing manner by pianist Takuji Kawai through my graphic notations. He played all the noises and concrète sounds without using any electronic device but with live natural sounds only to reflect 1950s to early 60s social situations." - Toshi Ichiyanagi.

Label: Edition Omega Point
Country: Japan
Price: $27.00
"Funakakushi" [1]: This electronic work was composed for the opening ceremony of the hotel "Funakakushi-en" in Kagawa prefecture in 1963. It was realized as a sound installation and used many speakers inside a built-in stone sculpture. They were designed by sculptor Mitsu-aki Sora (b. 1933) and were arranged here and there in the main garden of the hotel. The sound was made from a modified Japanese traditional instrument, biwa, as well as from a sea wave sound [2]. The engineer Junosuke Okuyama [3] assisted on electronic devices. "Life Music (tape version)": "Life Music" was originally composed as a tape version in 1964. After that, this work was played in another version with an electronic modified orchestra (contact microphones were placed on all the instruments in the orchestra) [4] at Nissei Theatre in 1966. [5] Junosuke Okuyama designed a special effect machine named Electronics Sound Breaker (=ESB) for the concert. Kuniharu Akiyama, music critic, wrote about this machine in the liner notes to the Orchestral Space LP as follows, "... amplified sound of the orchestra was sent to some effect machines and ESB, and they were driven by tape version. Just then, electronic amplification was cut off synchronously by silent parts of the tape, and only non-effect live sound was played ...."; Housed in a cardboard paper gatefold sleeve.

Ichiyanagi is the well known Japanese avant garde composer, but here is working in the vein of underground rock & threatrical freakout, performed by Uchida Yuyas group, Flowers. Limited edition reissue of approx 1000 copies, already creating a frenzy throughout the collector universe. Includes: 4 CDs; 24 postcards (Tadanori Yokoos amazing artwork); 2 silkscreened prints of the young composer and a hard cover book of texts & interviews (Japanese text only). Packaged in a beautiful hard cover box designed by Tadanori Yokoo. Note: this was originally issued as a 2LP release and the CD reissue has been done as 1 CD per LP side, to preserve the original listening experience (I guess). So, theres no bonus material here. Its also been transcribed from vinyl, with no digital filtering -- which sounds surprising in this era of digital remastering (the master tapes evidently lost or dysfunctional after 36 years...). Still, an original copy is out of the question and this has never been reissued before, hard to think of in any terms other than: "totally worth it".

“The details of Shikisokuzekuu-Kuusokuzeshiki (1964) are unknown except that it was created at the NHK electronic music studio. According to Toshi Ichiyanagi, there were various discussions about the title, but it would seem to have been eventually broadcasted on the radio with the title Kuu after a producer renamed it. Here, the original title is used, following Ichiyanagis initial intention. This work has no relation to the short experimental film Shikisokuzekuu (1974), produced by filmmaker Toshio Matsumoto with tape music by Ichiyanagi. Extended Voices was released in 1967 on the Extended Voices LP on Columbias Odyssey sublabel; a new version mixing baritone voices of Takashi Matsudaira to a monaural tape part was released by Omega Point in 2014 (OPX 013CD), but since the stereo version was found later, it is added here as a tape work without voice.

"Before his magnificent experiments with electronic music on Elektrictus (previously reissued on Wah Wah), Andrea Centazzo was already an accomplished musician who had issued his recorded works on the PDU and RCA labels. His first release was Ictus, a free-form avantgarde jazz oddessey on which he already started to experiment with electronic generated sounds.
Ictus was a band formed by Centazzo, Armando Battiston and Franco Feruglio, although back in the day the sleeve of the PDU release credited the work only to Centazzo, and as if Ictus was simply the title of the album. This was a big mistake that we have been asked to correct in our reissue.
A brave drummer and percussionist, on this album Centazzo also played flute, synths and sang. He was joined on some tracks by Franco Feruglio on bass and double bass and Armando Battiston on keyboards. It has been compared to Soft Machines Third or Wolfgang Dauners Et Cetera.
It was originally released in 1974 and it gets its first ever vinyl reissue here, housed in a gatefold cover in a 500 copies limited edition. " - Wah Wah.

The title track, longer than 10 minutes, you will never forget. It is an excursion, introducing the upcoming hypnotic beat and psychedelic sound. A cosmic sitar and meditative vocals intensify the mystical and floating vibrations of music, coming from the Ids inner space. The Beatles with Sgt.

John Shaw took us there and explained from before what it was gonna be like; we would be seated down in a comfortable couch while the last great man would stand up next to a pedestal with some quality whiskey, dope and cigarettes on it, sporting a mono-coloured suit and sunglasses (day and night) while Foust is telling stories about different art records, and mainly his own work, ranging from short films, visual work and audio since 1978! It was exactly how Shaw explained it. I was blown away by the honesty and the effort him and his ladyfriend Karla Borecki put into their work, and how little response they get to it. We shared a common interest in arrogant pop quality, and especially the situationists, to which he relates his work to in only aesthetic way! I think it is a quality in people when you cant divide their work with their persona; Idea Fire Company is a collective of people that definitely swing that robe!

“Recital is joyed to bring to you the new Idea Fire Company album, Lost at Sea.
Lost At Sea imagines the Idea Fire Company as the bar band on a small cruise ship. There are approximately 40 passengers aboard. Around 2/3 of them are in the lounge for the nightly IFCO performance. Most of them seem more interested in drink than in music. The ship has become lost and seems to be endlessly circling. Well stocked with booze and food, etc., the ship continues on. IFCO, armed with only a piano and trumpet/ radio/ synth, provide the nightly entertainment.
Lost At Sea is certainly the sister of the also piano-heavy The Music From The Impossible Salon, but Lost At Sea has an air of weary optimism replacing the bleak sadness of Impossible Salon.
For almost 30 years IFCO has carved their own path, or dug their own hole, depending on your view, through the ever-changing world of underground music. Still violently committed to the Avant-Garde and to new forms of beauty. Still Romantic. Still idealistic. Despite the odds. In the old days, this sort of commitment was better appreciated. IFCO remains IFCO. As a number of people have said over the years, every IFCO record sounds different, but they all sound like IFCO.” - Recital. Edition of 400.

"For the past 25 years, New Englands Idea Fire Company (IFCO) have positioned themselves at the frontline in the ageless battle for aesthetic purity. Founded by the enigmatic duo of Scott Foust (aka The Commander, aka The Last Great Man) and Karla Borecky, IFCO have built up a bulletproof discography, with each release refining the sound of its predecessor. They have been well served at home through their own Swill Radio imprint, and internationally, by Rund Um Den Watzmann, Entracte and, most recently, Ultra Eczema, who published the outstanding Beauty School LP. Music From The Impossible Salon finds the IFCO sound honed into eight elegant settings that variously combine piano, synth, radio, trombone, organ, gong and voice. Using minimal, yet striking gestures, Music From The Impossible Salon reveals itself to be a dusky pleasure center, where the jaded listener can find discreet interuption from the horrors of the day. Recorded at Wunderwaffen Studios, Nov/Dec 2010, and expertly mastered by Grammy-nominated producer Zupe, Music From The Impossible Salon allows the raw essence of IFCO to ring out like never before. Housed in a Foust/Borecky designed sleeve, the "charming phenomenon" that is Music From The Impossible Salon is now ready to greet its audience." - KYE.

Showcasing some top-shelf unreleased works; “The Whole World,” “Metropolis,” and “The Bitter End.” Older material is also included, a fierce version of “Artificial” from 2005′s Stranded, as well as the notorious “Cycle-19.” Additionally, there is a beautiful voice-based rendition of “Some Of Us” by IFCO comrades The Shadow Ring. All these pieces exhibit a contemplative and well-informed use of electronics, radio, and voice. Interlaced with spoken title announcements in French, punching typewriter passages, and bookended perfectly with audience dialogue and Mr. Ferry. Their mechanical and uncompromising aesthetic is pronounced, as Rags To Riches reminds us all why Idea Fire Company are such an important contemporary outfit. Edition of 285 copies, with color insert & essay by Scott Foust." -Recital. Audio excerpts: http://snd.sc/12qjJfJ

"2013 marked the 25th anniversary of Idea Fire Company, the duo of Scott Foust and Karla Borecky based in Amherst, Massachusetts. Right before the end of the year The Laboratory EP was recorded. Two tracks of icy synth work, at times sort of reminiscent of parts of the Anti-Natural LP from 1999, but this probably being the most stripped down and monotonous material you will be able to find in the splendid discography of Idea Fire Company. Mastered by Zupe. 200 copies. Black vinyl, white cardboard sleeve with postcard attached, stamped white labels, insert.” - I Dischi Del Barone.

Format: LP

Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Crisis of Taste is thrilled to offer The Synthetic Elements, a new LP by stalwarts of the outré Avant Garde, Idea Fire Company. For the better part of three decades Karla Borecky and Scott Foust have charted their own distinct course through the choppy waters of the experimental underground, their only interaction with the countless flash in the pan trends whipping passed their sails being a direct refutation of them. Often enjoying the company of a number of like-minded champions of the cause, The Synthetic Elements sees the core duo of Borecky and Foust continuing the reductive tactics of their most recent ‘chamber music period, as heard on landmark albums Music from the Impossible Saloon (Kye, 2011) and Lost at Sea (Recital, 2015), whilst simultaneously expanding the infrastructure towards new heights of grandeur. An intoxicatingly playful, yet hopeless atmosphere is established through deceptively simple conversations between Boreckys stately, withering piano phrasing and Fousts dicey, yet assured treatments for synth, radio, guitar and occasionally more discreet sources. The looping artificial pieces that open and close each side (harkening back to 1999s Anti Natural) seal up shop with no hope for escape. Another superb IFCO record, it is as simple and complex as all such a statement suggests. The Synthetic Elements arrives in an edition of 300, black vinyl w/ full color, Borecky-designed sleeves, expertly mastered by Grammy-nominated producer Zupe. “The Sinking Ship” hasnt sunk just yet." - Crisis of Taste.

"In March 2006, IFCO made their first appearances in Europe. Core members Karla Borecky and Scott Foust linked up with Frans de Waard and hit selected hot spots in The Netherlands, Belgium, and Germany. Adding de Waard (Beequeen, Shifts, Kapotte Muziek, Freiband, etc) was a brave gamble that paid off handsomely. Armed with only a tiny digital keyboard (Borecky), a radio/cassette boombox and small echo unit (Foust), and a sawed off MS 20 (de Waard), the trio captivated audiences large and small. On these selected recordings, IFCO exhibit a virile murkiness, an almost desperate muscularity. Warnings from a dwindling outpost. Five tracks, 52 minutes. Includes two versions of the haunting Pleasure Cruise. Digipak edition of 300."- Swill Radio.

"This cassette presents the soundtrack to Professor Timothy Shortells short film, The Terrible Comet Salt (2000). The narrative is based on a short story by Paul Sheerbart written in 1902, (an early instance of German science-fiction literature). The story, stark and bizarre, is distinctly narrated by Darren Harris (The Shadow Ring). The accompanying music is performed by Idea Fire Company (Scott Foust & Karla Borecky) in collaboration with Anti-Natural ally BRRR (Timothy Shortell). A melancholic and plodding rhythm propels the piece, well-fitting the apocalyptic chronicle. This remastered soundtrack is complimented with unissued work by IFCO & BRRR – three fine pulsating experiments with electronics and piano loops. Comet Salt is an arresting listen, a lost gem in the Anti-Natural canon. Edition of 200 cassettes, with 6-panel full color artwork." -Recital.

"Since their inception, Seattles eminently unique noise-benders, IDLE TIMES have enshrouded their unhinged pop dexterity in an entire soiled spectrum of illustrious cloaks, assuring every angle they pursue is leveled with deranged precision. From the instant the lead off track kicks in on their debut LP, its impossible to ignore the bands brainchild, BRIAN STANDEFOD, utilizing an unreal and otherworldly scorching guitar tone, which very well might be what locks you in at first. But on closer listens, its the scraps of distant-yet-familiar sound swatches, seamlessly patched together behind that inimitable guitar and vocal combination that make up the intensely diverse array of songs on their first full-length. Its never been more prominent than on their anxiously-awaited debut LP, where Idle Times are clearly pioneering a sound thats meshing so many degrees of varying styles from track to track, that it becomes easy to get lost in the staggering creativity of each intricate alcove. With such an intense collection of tracks that crush and crackle with deranged delight, Idle Times wield both noisy pop hooks with subdued melodic mastery, and prove that following up Sic Alps/Guided By Voices-style grungy, yet fully jangled scratchy pop hits, with the twang and clang of a fried-out later-era Byrds studio outtake, is truly something fresh and exciting in this never-ending world of recycled ideas and ripped-off innovation. It just doesnt sound like anything else, and as shocking as that may seem, thats most likely why its just so compelling. Initial vinyl pressing of 550 copies." -HoZac

"Parallel/Grayscale is the first collaborative work between Italian guitarist and composer Giuseppe Ielasi and French-Swiss composer and electroacoustic musician Kassel Jaeger. It is comprised of two different improvisation sessions. The first one took place in Paris, in October of 2011. The second happened in Oreno, in June of 2012, after the first concert Ielasi and Jaeger performed together. The first session was a pure analog device improvisation, whereas the second one was more laptop-oriented. These two moments have been melted together, forming two different subtracts of the same material. Gratitude to Fabio Carboni and Sara Serighelli from O, Milano." -Editions Mego.

"Long delayed box collecting -- on six sides -- an appendix to the Stunt trilogy, started in 2008 with the Stunt EP then followed by (Another) Stunt and a (Third) Stunt. The project was focused on the use of a turntable as the only source generating pulses and rhythms by physically playing a selection of records, using a technique inspired by hip-hop turntablism. This gathering of samples results in a glitched sound texture bringing Ielasis ambient imprint into a new dimension made of fragmented dance cadences, sometimes even adding a touch of dubstep grit to the mix. A soulful jam for a slippery dancefloor." - Holidays.

"In April 2011 Giuseppe Ielasi and Andrew Pekler met for a three-day recording session at Peklers studio in Berlin. In a comfortable atmosphere and with a minimum of preparation, the two artists endeavored to find common musical ground through their shared interests in sample manipulation, layering textures, and improvisation. Some months later, Ielasi auditioned the recordings and then mixed down his favorite passages. To a few of these selections Pekler then added an overdub or an edit, but for the most part Holiday for Sampler is a document of real-time interaction. The title Holiday for Sampler and the holiday resort names of the individual track titles are an oblique reference to both the pleasures of leisure travel and to the interplay of the familiar and the foreign themes at the center of Ielasis and Peklers artistic practice.

Format: LP

Country: Finland
Price: $22.00
"In 1910, the illustrator George Herriman created the Krazy Kat comic strip. Ignatz, a vicious mouse, was Krazy Kats arch enemy, and his favorite pastime was to throw bricks at Krazy Kats head (who misinterpreted the mouses actions as declarations of love). Brussels-based artist Bram Devens uses Ignatz as his alter-ego, and comes armed with his own pile of bricks; sparse, emotive songs born of the human condition, wrapped in effects, corroded by tape, driven forth by improvisation and spontaneity. Can I Go Home Now? is Ignatzs first Fonal release, but it is his fifth full-length album -- his seventh if you count the Kraak 2011 cassette compilation and 2010s Mort aux Vaches live LP on Staalplaat. Recorded in Schaarbeek, Brussels, Belgium between 2011 and 2012 on four-track and computer, the album sees Devens shift his focus toward more exclusively song-based compositions, cut largely from unabridged electric and acoustic guitar. Ignatzs songs stem from a familiar stripped folk framework, with Devens delivery recalling the louche primitivism of V.U. or Henry Flynt -- but these songs sound inverted, cast adrift, their cool touch belying a stymied heat beneath the surface. Where Devens fretwork is adorned, it is executed with a refined coarseness. Autonomous loops entwine each other. Songs brush past percussion, bass notes, or a scant keyboard motif. A voice recedes from the heart of the song into a dislocated, cracked drawl. And yet if Ignatz does occasionally recall the ghost of Jandek, there are moments of warmth and beauty, as sunlight glistens on the ice. Devens personal experiences echo throughout the albums artwork and the title itself, as well as the music. "The artwork is a drawing of a dog, a boxer called Gibbe. It is a drawing by myself from 1994 made in Budapest, Hungary, just after Gibbe died at the age of 13 from meningitis. A family holiday went bad. Because we did not want to leave him in Hungary we decided to wrap him in plastic and tie him on the roof of the car and drive back to Belgium (which took us 2 days and the body started to smell). This was the last holiday I spent with my parents, and this moment defined the end of my childhood, more than any other." Ignatz has toured Europe, the United States, Canada, and Japan, playing with, amongst others US Girls, Ducktails, Six Organs Of Admittance, Heatsick, Sir Richard Bishop, Chris Forsyth, Es, LSD March, Greg Malcolm, and Bridget Hayden." -Fonal.

"George Herriman created Ignatz in 1910. It was a vicious mouse in the comic Krazy Kat. Ignatz favourite occupation was throwing bricks at Krazy Kats head, who thought it was a love declaration from the mouse. The Brussels based artist Bram Devens uses Ignatz as his alter-ego for his own pile of bricks. Acoustic songs wrapped with effects and driven by improvisation and spontaneousness. III projects the atmosphere of Jack London and The Iditarod Trail Sled Dog onto a modern world ruled by technology. Devens brings us the most genuine melancholy contemporary pop music has seen since quite some time. This album leaves the underground scenery that is troubled by trends so often far behind and just shows us the pure essence of what Music has to be: raw emotions put to sound. With his third full album Bram Devens has once again amazed us with a masterpiece. In his usual brain-melting retro-futuristic blues folk, he summons the devilish spirits of Bukka White, Robert Pete Williams and Sleepy John Estes as seen through the eyes of an adolescent Lou Reed. III tells a fictive and blurred story about the death of music genres. Tragedies built upon screeching, atonal and repetitive melodies. Smelling like a wet dog or a badly dried towel. III breathes a much more sentimental atmosphere compared to Devens�?? previous work because of his grousing voice, that is not unlike Skip James�??s. After the closing track �??Dead By noon�?�, the tormented soul frees the listener from a heavy personal trip and leaves him dazzled.

"For the last decade, Belgian guitarist Bram Devens has been releasing solo recordings under the name Ignatz. A couple of cassettes have come out in the States, but most of his releases have been elusive imports. Thus, we have taken it upon ourselves to do a public service and release a domestic version of an LP that will appear on the (K-RAAK-K) label in Belgium. This must be something like the sixth or seventh studio album Ignatz has cut, and its a remarkably solid slab of mysto-folk/blues invention. There are more vocals than noted on previous Ignatz slabs weve encountered, and they manage to remind us of everyone from early Townes Van Zandt (The Watertower) to Karen Dalton covering Play with Fire (People in This Town). The way Brams voice lazily combines with the loose guitar playing sometimes makes the album sound like a mutant hybrid of early Jandek and mid-period Hurley. The rhythms and melodies go in and out of focus with a beautiful irregularity that demonstrate them to be the work of a true original. Playing what sounds like a mix of acoustic and lightly amped guitars, Ignatz hits Krazy Kat square in the bean with this one. And we all see stars. Tell Officer Pup the news." --Byron Coley, 2016.

"This one has been recorded for a while now – I think we finished it around the end of 2010, after starting it early that summer – but its been worth the wait, with Weird Forests usual high standards of presentation and mastering very much in evidence. We took a slightly different appraoch for this one too – instead of our more usual “virtual collaboration” method of sending files back and forward through the e-aether, we based this LP around some pretty intense live jams at a sweaty rehearsal space in Leeds. Of course we then took them apart and rebuilt them using our more regular method, but hopefully the sense of live abandon is there underneath it all." - Neil Campbell.

"Iibiis Rooge is the high-powered collaboration of Neil Campbell (Astral Social Club, Vibracathedral Orchestra and A Band) and High Wolf (releases on Holy Mountain, Not Not Fun, and his own Winged Sun label). Their new album, Hespherides, is a welcome development in the duos trajectory, with its immersive propulsion more refined and synthesized than their 2009 self-titled debut. That earlier effort showcased the possibilities and capacities of the two artists collaborative spirit, each track exploring the individual aspects of a shared sense of sound with discernible cues from either Campbells or High Wolfs discography. In contrast, Hespherides is a meticulously sculpted document that embraces a total sound -- one that denies prominence of each contributor by melding the psychic duality of the pair. Shifting industrialized ethno-polyrhythmic structures are transformed by droning, blissed-out textural threads that seamlessly coexist and contradict one another; Through two side-long process-driven mechanical meditations, a shared space is constructed, one that satiates anyone willing to gorge on the global, post-acid house, rainbow hypnotism that is Iibiis Rooge." - Weird Forest.

"Iibiis Rooge is the new superastral duo team bringing together the mysterious High Wolf (Not Not Fun Records, Winged Sun) with the seminal talents of Mr. Neil Campbell, better known these days as Astral Social Club (Fat Cat, VHF, Qbico, Important, Textile, Bottrop-Boy and countless other labels around the globe) and (ex-) member of Vibracathedral Orchestra, A-Band, and other obscure/legendary outfits. The new self-titled LP is the debut album of the band (dont call it "project") combining modern psychedelic High Wolf jams with the fucked up yet refined electronics and techno-infused beat choppery of the Astral Social Club - the result being a lot more then you might have expected from the two, transcending their combined talents into a multicoloured supernova. The strength of the album is an unexpected pop sensibility and airiness, while still being tighter and more consolidated than their regular solo outfits. Even the noisier elements are embedded in loose song structures with a carnivalesque air dominating the whole atmosphere. While the duos solo outings are often camouflaging any melodies in oodles of electronic noises or lo-fi psych jams and hiss this is a fairly different affair with simple melodic textures always dominating the four tracks. The defibration of structures is still apparent but the music is constantly pulling itself together again. Where the Astral Social Club is sometimes willingly losing himself in electronic soundscapes and the High Wolfs short & sketchy songs are rarely fully formulated by nature, all the positive aspects of their respective works are combined and complemented in Iibiis Rooge. These gentlemen are the perfect match. A visible proof that (musical) online dating can be a highly prosperous activity." -Dekorder

Title: gjerhan
Format: LP

Country: UK
Price: $25.00
"III (pronounced /el/) is Daichi Yoshikawa, Paul Abbott and Seymour Wright. This recording includes two bare 20-minute excerpts from separate performances at Café OTO. Daichi Yoshikawa (feedback); Paul Abbott (drums); Seymour Wright (alto saxophone). gjerhan began from subterranea, sweat, haze and dedication emerging out of intimate and intense weekly meetings begun in 2009 -- their first, 2012 public performance, squeezed into a London basement was a sheer, vexed and exhilarating smack of organic, heterodyning ideas, and taut, low-beating lumps. Reemerge/revanish: With the economy of familiar/traditional raw tools feedback, drum-kit, alto saxophone, time, space and emotion, III move from molten musical pasts to grow future pleasures in sound. The ingredients are familiar, but the listening is not: At its heart is a still, undecorated concentration fuelling an extreme testing of limbs, language and order. This has no concern with collapsing difference into a vogueish, flattened mass-froth, but searches -- forensically, ceaselessly -- for something to chew, in the challenge of discretion and integrity or asylum in the body of its instruments. Akilsakilan learning, Doughnut: Finding, twisting and hammering out an expanding musical universe balanced only by its own logic -- III have few obvious comparisons. Their performances are consistent radical negotiations of the emotional, physical and social energies of the environments they sound out. Perfectly reasonable." - Otoroku.

Format: CD

Price: $13.50
"Influenced by their punk upbringing, avant-garde schooling, and no wave surroundings in early 80s NYC, Ike Yard managed to create a new sound by also tapping into equal parts the krautrock experimentation of Can, the Neue Deutsche Welle of DAF and the UK post-punk dub of PiL and Joy Division. This combination helped them to create sound and songs unique enough to catch the attention of Factory Records, who made them their first American signing. What really set Ike Yard apart were their cutting edge techniques. The mixing board and effects processors were as important as the bass, synth or occasional guitar, giving Ike Yard an aggressive and propulsive sound, where drum machines beat against the sound of scrap metal and angular guitar slashes dart through arpeggiated synth patterns. Acute Records released on 1980-82 Collected collects, for the first time, Ike Yards two releases (their Factory LP and an EP for Les Disques di Crepuscule) plus several previously unreleased tracks." - Acute.

Country: Italy
Price: $26.00
"Iko was a minimal/synth/wave outfit from Canada. The most notable release by the band is their LP simply titled 83, which was released on a small Canadian disco label called Manhattan-Formula. Not much is known about the group due to little information in their record sleeves and little to no traces of information about the label they released on. Anyway, this is one of the most unknown yet amazing creations in the entire history of minimal wave and electronic music. Lots of simplistic lyrics, abstract and experimental sounds, and at the time, extremely groundbreaking techniques on the synthesizer. Iko is what todays electro artists replicate - Adult being the best example. Their sound is hardly new or unique some 20 years later. A true cult of this genre. Try this album for a trip down electro lane!" -Democratic Dancebeat Records.

Title: 83
Format: LP
Label: Medical
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"The first official reintroduction and reissue of the iconic IKO 83 LP. This coveted album by minimal synth aficionados around the globe has been out of print and very rare since its original release in 1982. Hailing from Montreal, Canada, IKO has always been shrouded in mystery. All 3 members come from an academic background (electroacoustic composition, etc), and they met at the University of Montreal in the music department. Taking from their collective influences of 60s pop, prog and minimalist composers as well as early industrial, they played in a few early bands before solidifying the all-synth incarnation of IKO in its definitive lineup. The LP was originally released on Manhattan Formula. Other than Rational Youth, the Montreal synth scene was small, and the band broke up not too long after its release. Over the years, it has slowly achieved cult status of the highest order and now fetches inflated collectors prices on the open market. It even prompted an unauthorized bootleg LP a few years ago (of much inferior sound quality). The master for this very special reissue is transferred and EQed from the master analog tapes. The opening track Approach on Tokyo sets the mood with its electro hooks and almost Trans-Europe Express synth parts. Gonadotropic Synthesis is an amazing slow and beautiful synthy melodic number which blurs the lines between love song and a lecture on hormonal interplay out of a medical textbook. Digital Delight is a fast paced dance floor favorite with cyborg lyrics and catchy hooks. The LP contains one never before heard bonus track Jungle City which is a bit of a more ominous and dark track as compared to the other album tracks. This LP will appeal to the legions of people who have been patiently waiting for an official reissue as well as the un-initiated fans of classic synth pop, Kraftwerk, early Human League and the like. Features a bonus insert with interview and retrospective by Dave Segal. Additional remastering by Martin Bowes at the Cage, London. Presented on high-quality 180gram heavyweight half and half yellow and black vinyl." - Medical.

Price: $17.00
“For the uninitiated, the composer of this music is also a master craftsman who, throughout the 1980s, combined his off-the-wall ideas and sky high expectations using craft, experimental technology and a trusted team of participants to help concoct some truly bizarre local produce in mass quantity without compromise. Ilaiyaraaja, known to his family as Gnanadesikan, and to many of his zillion strong fan base as Isaignani (meaning musical genius in Tamil) represents the epitome of a nostalgic national treasure, especially for a single solo composer in the Tamil micro music industry. His euphoric electrified music of the 70s and 80s (and beyond) captures every essence of joy and jubilation and is still used in celebration as much as it is celebrated in its own right. A man of humble physical stature and sparsely equipped with a self-sufficient studio of compact electronic devices, Ilaiyaraaja literally commands celebration with his single-handed symphonies. Defying any fair comparisons in the Western world (besides inadequate parallels to Joe Meek and Jean-Pierre Massiera), it is also virtually impossible to find similar electronic mavericks in the East. Imagine a mixture between Turkeys Ilhan Mimaroglu and the acidic synthesizer ragas of Charanjit Singh and youre still left short of the songs. Essentially, Ilaiyaraaja is to the local Kollywood film industry what RD Burman/Bappi Lahiri or M.Ashraf/Tafo are to Bollywood and Lollywood, but then remember that Ilaiyaraaja is a one-man band, with a single vision and zero competition. This compilation reveals more tasty treats from B-Musics ongoing obsession with The Crown Prince Of Tamil Pop -- focusing on his growth in the mid-1980s as a confident young composer adding freak pop fuel to the flickering flame of Kodambakkams Kollywood film industry, while embracing domestic synthesizer technology and fusing the power of electro and synth pop to his Carnatic canon.” - B-Music.

"In 1980, Ilitch mastermind Thierry Müller released his second LP, 10 Suicides, on the French imprint S.C.O.P.A. Unlike his debut Periodikmindtrouble (also available from Superior Viaduct), which featured intricately layered instrumentals, 10 Suicides explores a more art-damaged pop sensibility. While distorted guitars and atmospheric synth workouts remain a part of Müllers signature sound, several songs credit the mysterious Ruth Ellyeri, who was not an actual person, but rather Müllers female alter-ego. Opening track “Elle Voulait Que Je Sois Drôle” shows Ilitchs new direction with overloaded vocoders, driving Moog basslines and soft, Eno-like melodic flourishes. The androgynous vocals on “Waiting For Mabelle (Je Ne Viendrais Pas)” resemble an upbeat Gregorian chant bent through a 20th Century lens. 10 Suicides is a staggeringly personal album that still sounds years ahead of its time. This first-time vinyl reissue comes with 16-page booklet and is recommended for fans of Ghédalia Tazartès, Chris & Cosey and Monoton." - Superior Viaduct.

"In the mid-1970s, Parisian composer and multi-instrumentalist Thierry Müller began operating primarily under the Ilitch moniker. Juxtaposing dark, electronic soundscapes and solo guitar improvisations, Ilitch created some of the most enduring music of the era. It comes as no surprise that Nurse With Wound included Müller on their famed list of influential avant-garde artists. Originally released on Oxygene Records in 1978, Ilitchs debut Periodikmindtrouble was a shot across the bow for the French underground scene. Comprised of instrumental four-track recordings made in Müllers dorm room, the album features gritty tape loops, analog synth swells and angst-ridden guitars. “Sequence 4” fills the stereo field with eerie harmonium and kosmische textures, while the side-long title track is a bona fide organ soliloquy, exploring both abrasive and ambient sonorities. “Derriere La Fenetre (Behind the Window)” dives deeper into acoustic patterns to reveal the expressive quality of Müllers singular style. Periodikmindtrouble lays the groundwork for an impressive body of work that has grown only more unsettling over the past three decades. This first-time vinyl reissue comes packaged in a gatefold jacket and is recommended for fans of Cluster, Fripp / Eno and Heldon." - Superior Viaduct.

Price: $12.00
"Kevin Moreau, Charlie Schneeweis and John Levin started the Ill Wind Ensemble in 1993. The original band had a shifting line up that included many of the wayward musicians that hung out at McNeils here in Brattleboro VT. By 1994 they had settled down to a quartet, with percussionist Eric Boyer, that would perform together for another seven years. This recording from 1995 documents that quartet as they began to hone their free improvisations into a collective musical language. Using instruments from western, world, and home-made traditions, as well as toys and other found objects, and guided by a shared passion for droning modes, the unpredictable tunings of folk winds and reeds, and careful listening, the group, as Kevin liked to put it, "peeled the paint off the walls" of his Wilder Building studio with sounds like the ones captured on this CD. Originally produced in home-duplicated cassette format and sold only at concerts in a proto-internet and pre-downloadable world, this Spirit of Orr release captures a lost moment in time.

Title: See-Saw
Format: LP

Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"Incorporating elements of blues, country, punk and pop, and with an emphasis on traditional songs, SEE-SAW falls into what Gram Parsons had called ⿿cosmic American music⿝. Accordingly, it lies somewhere between the country-soul of Big Star and the punk spirit of The Wipers. Recorded in a basement on an 8 track reel to reel, and later mixed at Seaside Lounge in Brooklyn, its anthemic yet warmly modest. The drums, though straightforward and minimal, are a solid rallying cry. The bass is both warm and soulful. The guitars are twisted American hybrids, shifting from a bluesy jangle to a dark sound-fix, like Chuck Berry or Tom Verlaine playing to the sound of a jet crashing, or the springs of a clock snapping apart. The piano and organ add cool melodic counterpoints, bringing calm to chaos. The lyrics are spun out of rich phrases, crowded with protagonists that rise and fall on opposite ends of the great fulcrum of luck. Zachary Cales vocal delivery is wrenching, both crooner-like and raw. The end result is an enigmatic album that is both familiar and foreign; one that wears the suit of American rock & roll, but broadcasts anthems from another universe." - All Hands Electric.

"Bernard Ilous came from a music lovers family, his parents were into jazz and classical music and the young Ilous inherited that sensitivity to the point of teaching himself to play guitar and piano. He discovered R&R and started doing covers of The Beatles and Bob Dylan, but he soon showed skills to write his own compositions. He showed his work to music publisher Gerard Tavernier who signed him to his company and thus some of Ilous songs appeared on LPs by Francoise Hardy, Eric Charden, Johnny Hallyday, Dick Rivers, a.o. In 1969 his friend Claude Putterflam left his job at Vogue to create Flamophone records and he produced a single for Ilous, who was willing to release his own songs by himself. Very soon Ilous joined forces with Patrice Decuyper with whom he would record the amazing LP on offer here. Issued also on Flamophone in July 1971, its blend of folk & pop brings to mind echoes of The Beatles, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young or Joni Mitchell. The sound on the LP is amazing, they took one whole year to produce it, as they were using free studio hours now and then to stay into a budget, and they played most of the guitars and keyboards and were helped by friends from Le Systeme Crapoutchik on other instruments. The production is excellent and the compositions are amazing, probably one of the most impressive French-sung LPs of all time, and a must for lovers of 60s and 70s perfectly arranged & produced, well crafted works. It is reissued on vinyl for the first time since its original release, mastered from the original tapes and featuring a bonus 7" containing the two songs from their 1972 non-LP single plus an insert with liner notes.

Title: Now Again For The First Time
Format: CD
Label: Phon
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Intense Molecular Activity worked diligently in the background during the zenith of New York Citys visceral post punk and no wave movements. Recording as a duo, Don Hunerberg and Andy Blinx pain-stakingly wove together their own textured songs and soundscapes from 1979 to 1982. No outsiders to the scene, Hunerberg was a recording engineer at the legendary Radio City Music Hall Recording Studio working with Sonic Youth, the Ramones, Blondie, John Cale, Richard Hell and many others. Blinx was a drummer who also pioneered LED fashion accessories for Patricia Field, Maripol, Grace Jones, Bill Aucoin plus more. While bearing some comparisons to the likes of Suicide, Devo and Gary Numan, IMA looked beyond minimal synth/post punk stylistic trappings and "hosed them down in wetly psychoactive sense deranging treatments" (MUTANTS SOUNDS Blog). IMA left behind only one EP, 4 tracks, on Flexi-Disc in 1980 that was independently produced and then distributed worldwide by 99 Records. The recording has since become a rare and hidden gem for die-hard record collectors around the world. Tracks from the Flexi-disc, and an additional eight from the archives, are heard here, now again for the first time." - Phon.

Format: Double LP

Price: $32.00
"In 2008, a triple cassette oddity appeared out of nowhere adorned in washed-out nature collages and zero information. Turns out that John Elliot of Emeralds was behind the madness, and after further dissection of the sounds enclosed, it all began to make sense. Those three tapes (one yellow, one blue, one red) were the first taste of something that felt like a lost private-press object from the early European electronic experimentations of the 60s and 70s. Each vignette is its own story, its own exploration. Synthesizers and other electronics are stripped to their bare bones, never drifting beyond a mere five minutes. Its the brevity that is the guiding hand, though. Every tone and every note is carefully considered and utilized as youre sucked into a world of washed-out colors and sullen landscapes. One thing that immediately stands out with these pieces is just how restrained Elliot is with them. It adds considerable tension, even if its understated, giving the album a surprising amount of emotional depth. Each piece is its own miniature mountain, traversed and left behind all in a matter of minutes. As you interact with the subtlety changing harmonics and tonal shifts, you begin to float away into synthetic dreams. If all bedroom albums were this great, Id never leave the house. A true gem. It doesnt get much better than this. Completely remastered for vinyl by James Plotkin and cut in Berlin by D+M. The deluxe vinyl edition is presented in full-color gatefold jackets with all new art from John Elliot in conjunction with the inimitable Witchbeam. Strictly limited pressing." -Digitalis

“Imarhan Timbuktu, Dintchéré and Ousmane Ag Oumar presentTimbuktu Echoes. Shock, sadness, nostalgia. A world shattered. Acoustic guitars echo the pain of dislocation, the loss of a past and the impediments to the future. Imarhan Timbuktu, renowned Tuareg band from Timbuktu in the Sahara, is featured on five of these ten tracks. Their rhythm guitarist, Ousmane Ag Oumar, contributes two solo pieces. The third group, Dintchéré, are young musicians from Timbuktu. Music doesnt provide the answer. Its only therapy. Waiting in empty rooms, in refugee tents, at campfires in the desert brush. Geopolitics. As always, innocent people are left as collateral damage. Cultures erased. These ten tracks are meditations on hope and despair, haunting with hypnotic guitar grooves. An abruptly reordered world has put dreams on hold. Includes download code.” - Clermont Music.

Kinetic energy, a chugging beat, and waves of delayed gratification. Classic trembling Teutonic disco-punk, in other words. Dodgy drummer Chris Imler, infamously involved in Spankings and Golden Showers (these are groups) has also previously been associated with work with Puppet Mastaz, Peaches, Namosh, Electronicat as well as being one half of the Driver&Driver duo with Patric Catani, with whom he has toured the world and recently released a double album entitled We Are The World, funnily enough. This year he has also played drums for Soffy O, Die Türen and for Stereo Total in a theatre play.

Price: $21.00
"Crazy video documentation (long thought to be lost) of a live show by legendary L.A./South Bay proto-punk unit, The Imperial Dogs. Recorded at Cal State Long Beach the night before Halloween, 1974, fliers for the event promised "an evening of sex, violence, and public outrage," and this 64-minute DVD delivers the goods. Some people may know The Imperial Dogs from the Unchained Maladies LP that Dave Laings Dog Meat Records issued back in 89. A few may even know the 78 single they released through Back Door Man. But neither of those actually prepares you for the amazing visual onslaught of the band. In a year perhaps best remembered for Terry Jacks "Seasons In The Sun," The Imperial Dogs (fronted by wasted, he-man writer, Don Waller) were blasting out originals like "This Aint The Summer Of Love" (later copped by Blue ֹster Cult) and slamming through Velvets covers as though other people on the planet actually cared. The introduction raps are worthy of transcription, the video transfer quality is shockingly good, the sound is great, and the performance is really amazing. Its almost unbelievable that this kind of ruckus was being created in 74, but it was and the evidence is finally available. The package is hep, too. Lotsa good color photos (like Iggy watching The Imperial Dogs playing at Rodneys English Disco -- the only live band there, ever) and thousands of excellent historical words that will place your ass in the ghettos of Long Beach, CA many, many years ago. Really one of the best, least expected slabs of wild history to come down the pike in many a moon. Let us pray a similarly-styled LP will follow before too long. 64 minutes; Mono; black & white; NTSC format, all region; includes a 20-page booklet with notes and rare photos." - ID Music.

They create a type of minimalist space music that some found danceable, even though its drone qualities were at times syrupy slow and difficult to dance to.

Title: Facilidad?
Format: LP
Label: Trd w/d
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"Facilidad? is Impractical Cockpits 7th full length LP since their inception more than 10 years ago in the cold and blustery Minneapolis winter of 1998. After several �??relocation efforts,�?� the band settled for 6 years in the vibrant port of New Orleans just after the turn of the new millennium, honing in on their signature approach to Noise infused songwriting. Always brewing up their own slog of psychedelic punk the Cockpits have managed to stay true to their all-analog asthetic no matter how difficult this can be on shoe string budgets. After their crew was totally displaced by the horrific events of Hurricane Katrina, the band re-formed in New Orleans in the Spring of 2006 to spend a month writing a new album, unavoidably inspired by the desolate depressed post Katrina landscape. Mountains of molding garbage lined the streets as cats claw and ivy tore through watermarked walls of recently abandoned buildings. The National Guard paced through the streets in armored vehicles, and constant gunshots rang through the thick stillness of decay and toppled over trees. After putting together a live set there, which was to later become this album known as Facilidad?, the Cockpits embarked on a 2 month tour, with a 2 week recording session scheduled right in the middle. Traveling in a home made vegetable oil powered motor home as a 5 piece band, with 2 dogs, and a battery of instruments, they played the album all the way through every night of the tour. The set varied wildly from night to night. The result is this multi-track recording, a culmination of all of their previous efforts summed up in an opus. Balkan informed brass arrangements get smacked to tape alongside the thick improvisational gumbo of triaged hand crafted paper reed horns and drum machines. Plywood gets smashed to shit and an abandoned warehouse stairwell provides an echochamber for choral arrangements complete with barking dog. On the albums closer �??Gurus Plume,�?� a homemade electric violin gets heavy usage, played in the Northern Louisiana Michot family tuning of EBEB. Shrill reverb drenched vocals are softened by intense but loosely slung rubber band looped keyboards while talismans are shaken is a steel tea cup. Now somewhat disbanded, each member of Impractical Cockpit seems to be digging themselves deeper into whatever sonic obsession they see fit for these crucial times. But thats not to say that this is the last time were likely to hear from Impractical Cockpit." - Trd w/d

"Minimal Wave is proud to present a second volume of selections from our French favorites, In Aeternam Vale. Culled from a vast archive of recordings, these tracks were originally self-released on various cassettes by the bands frontman Laurent Prot between 1985-1988. The sound ranges from early EBM/industrial to gristly coldwave to dark reverby guitar psychedelia. This record illustrates the stylistic range that, through experimentation and fearlessness, Laurent Prot and Pascal Aubert were capable of producing. To quote a review from In Aeternam Vales self-titled LP (2009) "All the caustic, lazy, lowbrow/highbrow genius is there and even though the music is still raw, ramshackle and DIY-sounding, its produced and mastered like a motherfucker!.

On the flip side are two pure wave tracks, Jai Mangé des Nerfs and Animals Dont Mind. Gnd Lift is a slow building hazy hypnotic track with heavy atmosphere, fitting perfectly on a smoke filled dance floor. Jai Mangé des Nerfs is a classic vocal driven synthpop track with the grit characteristic of In Aeternam Vales 80s cassette works. The 12" closes with Animals Dont Mind, a slow and deeply emotive smoldering darkwave track that speaks directly to the heart, this one feels the most personal thus far. The Gnd Lift 12" shows us all sides of In Aeternam Vale, his strengths lying in his ability to create both techno masterpieces and classic underground wave tracks, moving seamlessly from one to the next. None of these tracks have ever been released before although In Aeternam Vale has been performing them live recently with much acclaim.

*Death Message Blues is the powerful new album from UK swamp blues band THE INCA BABIES. Its their sixth album in a career spanning 28 years and marks their full return to live performance after the death of founder member bassist BILL MARTEN. Originally formed in Manchester in 1983 by guitarist and vocalist HARRY STAFFORD and bassist Marten, the band released four albums and recorded four sessions for the BBCs legendary John Peel Show before splitting in 1988. Reuniting in 2007, Stafford and Marten recruited GOLD BLADE drummer ROB HAYNES, but work on the new album was halted by Martens sudden death in 2008.  After a period of reflection, it was decided to complete the work that Marten had begun, with the bands long-time friend VINCE HUNT (A WITNESS, PURE SOUND) taking over on bass. Death Message Blues features twelve new tracks penned by Harry S. casting a net across fast and spiky R&B, swamp blues, bastard country and punk power. Lyrically, the songs observe usual Inca traits of wild characters, ghosts and murderous stories, with reflections too on the passing of Inca founding member, bassist Bill Marten." - Old Skull

Notorious for their incredibly short “songs” (typically 2-30 seconds of improvised instrumentation on cheap and broken instruments over bizarre decontextualized rants) with verbose and frequently idiotic titles, the duo quickly garnered a following within the experimental tape underground of the 1990s.

"Like no other music in this planet, these two Japanese noise masters deliver obsessive, precise and unforgettable live sets of intense electronic harsh beauty. Legendary Japanese noise masters Incapacitants and Pain Jerk performed for the first time ever in the US at No Fun Fest 2007, this CD include crystal clear board recordings of their sets, mastered for full audio brutality. If you havent had the pleasure of experiencing either of this acts live this is your chance, if you have then this is also your chance to re-experience two of the most amazing live performers of our time. Liner notes by Carlos Giffoni and Chris Goudreau (Sickness). Incapacitants began in 1981 as Toshiji Mikawas solo project in Osaka, where Mikawa collaborated with Yamatsuka Eye and others. Later, in Tokyo, Fumio Kosakai became a member, to form the current duo. From the beginning, while the attempt to achieve pure NOISE has been the most important aspect of their sound, they have also been famous for their stage performances, which are so wild they may remind people of pro wrestling matches. This aggressive, energetic style and the beauty of their NOISE are unrivaled. Along with Hijo Kaidan, Merzbow, C.C.C.C., and Solmania, Incapacitants is one of the most well known of the NOISE bands which started out in the early 80s. Because of the members other work (Mikawa is a bank employee, and Kosakai works in a government office) they have rarely toured inside or outside Japan. Pain Jerk is a noise music unit run by Japanese musician Kohei Gomi. Pain Jerk was one of the more prolific and influential noise artists of the 1990s, and is one of the leading figures in the "dynamic" style of Japanese noise, alongside acts such as Merzbow and Kazumoto Endo." -No Fun.

"An incredibly gifted power-pop quintet, The Incredible Kidda Band without a doubt were the most exciting things to come out of Coventry since the Blitz (bombs in the sky, not razors in the night).  Sadly, too much, too little, too late was the fate of the majority of the bands recordings, BUT NOW, thanks to the intervening hand of Last Laugh Records, two of the bands best 1978 recordings are free to sing and spin at the speed at which nature had always intended:  45 rpm!  The A-side - Watch Out Thief - is Thorstein Veblen with a brown-ale pub dance beat or perhaps the Cockney Rejects Badman cast as a mod instead of a skin, while the B-side - You Belong To Me - shows exactly where the Exploding Hearts were lifting 90% of their melodic ideas.  Vintage, top-ranking Great British power pop:  first time at 45 with period appropriate picture sleeve design by Sing Sing Records dynamo Trey Lindsey and utterly essential to your life.  YOU BUY IT!" - Last Laugh.

"In the mid 1960s, Detroit Michigan was a thriving industrial city. It was at the edge of a cliff, however. The great ethnic diversity in the inner city was a brewing powder keg of civil unrest. This, coupled with a disillusioned population struggling to make some sense of a questionable war in the rice paddies of Vietnam, set an uneasy and troubling tempo for the future. Still, there were pockets of communities in the Detroit area where things were good and economic life was vibrant. The Grosse Pointes were such communities. It was on the outskirts of this political and racially tense era, in the affluent suburbs just outside of the city of Detroit, that Index was formed. The music of Index has been lauded by music heads for decades, and with good reason: it is bizarre, atmospheric, and home-made (in the best of all possible ways); the band has a druggie sound, with songs full of feedback and fuzzy guitars, hazy guitar riffs and loud rhythms. Hidden amongst the echoing canyons of sound theres some snotty post-punk attitude wrapped up in that trippy velvet fuzz; a wonderful bleak sound, both droning and murky, the atonal side of late 1960s rock that would leave the most lasting impression on those who would eventually become punk, post-punk and indie rock artists like Joy Division or the Fall. Includes a 32-page booklet, written by Index drummer Jim Valice, detailing the bands rock and roll adventures, replete with photos and lyrics; printed on FSC recycled, chlorine-free, 100% post-consumer fiber paper manufactured using biogas energy." -Lion Productions

Last copies of this official reissue from 2004 of the first Index LP, originally released in 1967. All copies have a certain amount of edge-warp (as expected, I guess) and are sold as is. "Much has been written about this incredible band. Much of it isnt true. I want to set the record straight. Index was formed in the early spring of 1967 in Grosse Pointe, Michigan. I was 18 years old when I met a chain-smoking 16-year-old named Gary Francis. Our conversation soon got around to rock and roll. He told me that he and his friend, John Ford, were forming a band. I told him that I played drums and we arranged a jam session at Johns home on Lakeshore Drive. Our first meeting was incredible. Our sound was full and powerful. Johns lead guitar techniques were fresh and innovative. After our first sessions we knew we had something special. Index was born. Soon we hit the local sock hop circuit, playing at high schools and teen clubs in the area. We poured our unique sound out at The Hideout, Undercroft and G.P. War Memorial every weekend. One afternoon John pulled out a new album he had been listening to. It was a new band with a mind-shattering sound called The Jimi Hendrix Experience. John played some songs he had written inspired by this psychedelic sound. Over the next few days, Fire Eyes, Shock Wave and Feedback were written. This album was recorded in December of 1967 at the Ford estate. It is recorded in mono sound with literally one microphone and with all instruments and vocals recorded at the same time. The cover photo is of Orpheus and Bacus, founders of a singing group John joined at Yale. The stiff, board-like figures seem to characterize the exact opposite of this musical collection. This reissue is taken from the original recordings. Nothing has been added and all songs are in their original length. Over the years various bootleg copies of this album have surfaced but this is the original work." -Jim Valice.

"Houston, Texas based INDIAN JEWELRY are on a roll. Last years "Free Gold" album blew many minds and was the best document to that point of their mastery of the aural psychic-swirl. Their side-long contribution to this split EP highlights what they do best...combining uncanny songcraft with insistent, pulsing and throbbing layers of sound. With "Zing Zang" its as if they are leading a pied piper-like caravan through the countryside, picking up joyful followers along the way (zing) while sternly pointing out the hazards of following (zang). Its the sound of a band confidently striding off in their own direction, which is an all too rare thing these days. Fellow Houstonians FUTURE BLONDES (Domokos of RUSTED SHUTs side project) occupy the "other side" of this record in more ways than one. Their "Heartless" is a relentless piece of dark, hypnotic electro-spuzz that isnt going to fill anyone with anything resembling hope for the human race. Not so much music made for the denizens of the dance floor but more like a soundtrack for the detritus left on the dance floor after everyone has gone home. Limited to 525 copies." - Dull Knife.

Artist: INDIGNANT SENILITY
Title: Consecration Of The Whipstain
Format: Double LP
Label: Type
Country: UK
Price: $25.00
"Pat Mahers outsider sounds have emerged in many different forms; the syrup-laced rap remixes of DJ Yo-Yo Dieting, the ketamine house of Diamond Catalog and of course the wheezing industrial ambience of Indignant Senility. Consecration Of The Whipstain is Mahers second widely-available album under the Indignant Senility moniker, and its long-form abstractions place him a step apart from his peers. Where Plays Wagner took a selection of thrift store charity records as source material, Consecration... works with a wider palette and sees Maher roughly paste together clattering percussion, wretching environmental sounds, opium drones and much more to emerge with a sound that owes more to Iannis Xenakis and Lustmord than to the contemporary set. Mahers noise roots have always given him a rougher, more abstract edge than others in the genre, but this album finds his shadowy ambience chiseled into four pitch-perfect explorations of his very particular alternate timeline. Recorded through amplifiers and microphones to give the music a chance to "breathe," the fuzzy pictures slowly come to life and offer a shocking amount of depth and variety. At times it sounds like a decaying sound strip from a 30s suspense reel, with all the crackle and flicker youd expect to come alongside that. Mahers sounds take us into places we might not want to go, but theres no denying that once youre there its hard to wrench yourself free.

Title: Plays Wagner Part Two
Format: LP
Label: Type
Country: UK
Price: $19.00
"This is the second in a series of two strictly-limited vinyl editions of Plays Wagner by Portland, Oregons Pat Maherr. This recording under his Indignant Senility moniker first appeared as a very limited cassette on Maherrs own label in 2009, but as soon as it landed at the Type offices, they knew it needed to reach a wider audience. Using a handful of dusty Wagner pieces (no doubt scored from one of Portland, Oregons many thrift stores), he has stretched and distorted the hallowed tones into something indescribably dark and beautiful. Like David Lynchs peerless Eraserhead soundtrack before it, this is music that sounds as if you are being dragged through rusted pipes and hearing the distant swell of broken gramophones playing in unison. Maherr has created music that is at all times exquisite but deeply disturbing. Like Leyland Kirby or even William Basinski, there is a sense of harmony, nostalgia and restraint in the layers of hiss, grit and noise. It is only very rarely you hear something as pure and enveloping as Plays Wagner. Having mastered this from cassette tape, Type has retained all the decomposing grime experienced on the original version (which was dubbed to aging, heavily-used C90 cassettes), but have beefed it up for public consumption. The best way to absorb an album like this is to place the needle and simply slip away into a deep, nightmarish slumber. Just keep your eye on the radiator -- who knows what might happen.

"Discover one of the last U.S. cult bands from the creative early 80s disco and post-punk period. Indoor Life -- an undisputed delightful blend of rock, new wave and hypnotic grooves, at that time often compared and collated with Tuxedomoon. Their first EP from 1980 was recorded by the legendary producer Patrick Cowley. The four piece consisting of J.A. Deane, Bob Hoffnarr, Joseph Sabella and former Patrick Cowley collaborator Jorge Socarras (who has recently formed the duo Fanatico together with Mathias Schaffhäuser) was the epitome of New Yorks flourishing underground scene in the early 1980s. Indoor Life gave a strong impetus to Europes electronic music scene of the 1980s. Their records were released on their own Indoor Life imprint and renowned labels like Celluloid, Elektra and Relativity. On two CDs, Elaste Records and Compost "Curated" Records release the complete Indoor Life catalog. CD1 contains their debut EP Indoor Life and the first self-titled album. CD2 comes with the EPs Relativity, Searching and Sunshine Superman, plus alternative mixes, bonus and remix recordings (six of them previously-unreleased). All material has been digitalized, re-mastered from original reels or vinyl, and includes previously-unreleased bonus tracks and remixes by Soft Rocks, Quaid, Mathias Schaffhäuser, Discodromo, and more. More remixes will follow on vinyl. The CD artwork and poster were designed by Thomas Elsner in conjunction with Michael Reinboth, founder and publisher of the legendary magazine Elaste (1980-1985). The 2CD set contains a poster with photos, quotes and liner notes by Thomas Meinecke (FSK/Freiwillige Selbstkontrolle), Bruce Geduldig (Tuxedomoon), Jon Hassell (Fourth World), Stuart Matthewman (Sade), Finn Johansson (Macro Recordings), Mike Thorne (producer for Wire, Soft Cell, Nina Hagen, Bronski Beat, Siouxsie And The Banshees, and Laurie Anderson, amongst others)." - Compost.

"Infinite Livez (born 1972 in Bethnal Green, East London) is an MC and musician who studied at Chelsea Art College. His wide range of influences comes from such diverse sources as P-Funk, Surrealism and continental philosophy. His first album Bush Meat was released on Big Dada Records in 2004 to immediate critical acclaim in the UK and abroad. 2007 saw the release of his second album Art Brut fe de Yoot, also on Big Dada, and a collaborative project with the Swiss electro-jazz outfit, Stade. Recorded over a series of improvised sessions, it has been recognized as a unique achievement in both experimental hip-hop and wacky humor. The follow-up album to Art Brut fe de Yoot, entitled Morgan Freemans Psychedelic Semen, was released in 2008. At the beginning of 2009, the live album Live at La Guinguette, again recorded with Stade and guest vocalist Joy Frempong, came out of a residency in Geneva. Infinite Livez has performed in the UK and all over Europe, including events such as Montreux Jazz, the North Sea Jazz Festival and The Sonar Festival. Besides Stade and Joy Frempong, Infinite has worked with a wide range of other producers and musicians including David Murray, Jahcoozi, Nils Petter Molvar, Elliott Sharp and Kid Acne. He has supported artists such as Kool Keith, Anti Pop Consortium, MF Doom and Mulatu Astatke. As a visual artist, Infinite Livez has also worked on a variety of other projects, like making comic books, animations, prints and illustrations (for magazines such as Hip Hop Connection and The Wire). In July 2009, Infinite had his first solo exhibition, Salvador Dali Was Half Bengali at Pebbledash Gallery in London where he presented a series of madly surrealist silkscreens referencing the aesthetics of old-school comics, Japanese woodcuts and Hans Bellmer. In September 2009, he took part in the group show 7 Styles for 7 Brothers at Archipelago Art, Sheffield. Recently, Infinite launched Glorious Mono, his own weekly 1 hour radio show on Herbstradio 99.1 FM in Berlin." -The Tapeworm.

The A Side consists of two tracks, both clouded in a heavy haze of fog, dark and heavy though their clarity exists underneath the shroud. The B Sides lone track "Skull Theft" is the full circle realization of the first two tracks: a light is illuminated and the fog begins to clear. Mastered by Keith Fullerton Whitman." -Arbor.

"San Francisco provocateurs Inflatable Boy Clams recorded one of the greatest all-female art punk records ever made, a wrongfully obscure five-song double 7-inch EP which has garnered a cult following ever since its initial release on Subterranean Records in 1981. While the music blends simple instrumentation and captivating, quirky lyrics, the artwork looks like an early Rough Trade single, complete with a posh Winogrand-esque photo of the group. More of a performance art troupe than a traditional rock band, the Boy Clams often rotated between instruments and shared vocal duties: JoJo Planteen, Judy Gittelsohn, and Carol Detweiler (the latter two both members of Pink Section), along with saxophone player Genvieve Boutet de Monvel. It is easy to imagine Planteen dancing to Skeletons with its infectious bassline and kitschy organ (or even to the flip-side track Snoteleks, which is the A-side played backward). Im Sorry is the ultimate one-upmanship song that reveals that women can be sinister, too. This first-time reissue comes from the original master tapes.

"INFORMATICS were a post-punk electronic band from Melbourne, Australia formed in 1981. MICHAEL TRUDGEON, VALEK SADOVCHIKOFF, STEVE ADAM and RAMESH AYYAR  met in the experimental sound studio while attending the same art school. PHILIP MCKELLAR later joined the band in 1983. Between 1981 and 1985, Informatics recorded numerous tracks, mainly in a garage, using a four-track tape machine and any electronic gear they could get their hands on. The band held a fascination for contemporary visual art and moving images and videos would accompany their live performances.The production elements in the videos reflected Informatics philosophy on sound composition: the footage was entirely pirated from television ads, manipulated and then collaged to create new narratives that reinforced the music. Between January and November 1981 the band recorded their debut 4 song Dezinformatzia EP but it was not released until 1983 . The track "Proximity Switch", later renamed "Accidents in Paradise" became popular in parts of Europe and was re-released in 1985. Dance To A Dangerous Beat collects all 4 songs from the first EP, 2 songs from compilation appearances as well as 6 unreleased tracks on vinyl for the first time. Informatics early songs have a brittle, cold, disconnected feel made by a Roland SH-101, Korg MS-20 and a lot of processed guitar. The later songs utilize newer technology and ambient, synthesized melodies closer to their country mates Severed Heads. All songs have been transferred from the master tapes by Informatics and remastered for vinyl by GEORGE HORN at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The vinyl comes housed in a full color printed jacket using the original magenta and grey artwork from Dezinformatzia EP. Each LP includes a double sized 11x11 insert with photographs and liner notes by the band. Dance To A Dangerous Beat recounts the history of these synthpunk pioneers a world away from their contemporaries in America." - Permanent.

"Dark Entries is proud to release the debut EP “Vehicle” from San Francisco based synth trio INHALT. Consisting of European and East Coast natives– Matia Simovich, Bryan Gibbs, and Philip Winiger– INHALT’s core operative strategy is of sonic fidelity and integrity rather than nostalgia. Having experienced the downfall of the music industry and professional studio system while working at Asphodel Records/Recombinant Media Labs, INHALT needed to create their own creative working environment. Thus, they designed and built The Bunker Studio, developed around an integrative ideology and employing the best of vintage and modern technologies and techniques. Here, they’ve honed their sound–sometimes referential to the raw electronics of Kraftwerk or the drive of Moroder disco–but ultimately their own interpretation of the border between the past and the present. What started with the split 12″ for Andy Blakes’ World Unknown imprint now continues with the “Vehicle” EP, where the brutality of the analogue transistor rhythm section meets the sincerity of the human voice.
All tracks were written, produced and mixed by the band at The Bunker Studio, San Francisco, California between 2009 and 2011. Everything was recorded to a 24 track 2 inch reel to reel tape machine and mixed down to a 2 track 1/4 inch tape. The tracks were then mastered by Paul Lavigne in London, England at Walls of Sound Mastering. All songs have been EQed for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, CA.

"Inner Tube is about the inner emotional reverie of a world where life has been seen through the tube of a wave. Its a new band from Mark McGuire of Emeralds and Spencer Clark of The Skaters and Monopoly Child Star Searchers. Spencer has this to say about the experience: "The bliss and ecstatic power of Australian beach music has kept me in this positive mental attitude that I wanted to communicate to everyone around me. Mark and I began to be in touch, and started to really connect in our exotic fascination with Australia and its surf culture. We decided to record an album together with impressions from these private movies and their tunes. Mark travelled numerous times to Pacific City Studios so that we could make this album together(and eventually moved here). At one point, a woman visiting Hotel California who I hadnt met before, mentioned she thought it was strange that I played so much Australian music. I told her about my fascination with Storm Riders, the sickest Australian movie of all time. She immediately told me that her Uncle had a big part in the movie. The guys name is Rabbit Bartholomew. He is a magical person in this Storm Riders movie and has been an inspirational to surfers everywhere. He wrote this letter to Mark and I:

Hey Spencer,
Great to get ya letter. Christel gave me a bit of insight. Really cool how you guys were talking about Storm Riders and our family connection, thats meant to be bra. For sure, send me a demo, Ill give ya some feedback. Thats really cool about inner tube and the beloved zone, thats it mate, right on the money.

We then realized that we were to travel to the Gold Coast in Australia to record Inner Tube Part Deux, and play a Surf Festival put on by Rabbit Bartholomews sister. The story just keeps on going, so Mark and I are really stoked to have you guys check this out with us..." - Pacific City Sound Visions/Wagon.

"Do you ever listen to a record and worry about its creators sanity? Granted, it rarely happens, but in the case of Innercity -- Antwerp producer Hans Dens -- its a legitimate concern. Thankfully, Denss apparent madness manifests itself in music so uncompromising and off the charts of classification that it convinces you that any kind of sonic innovation at this late date demands a bit of mental instability. By way of explanation, Dens says, "People forget that there is only magic in this world, mostly black, nothing more." In other news: You will never confuse this Innercity with Kevin Saundersons Inner City. ABABABABABABAS (Blue Lion Child) makes Denss rather strange first album on Further, 2012s A Lion Baptism, seem like radio-friendly fodder by comparison. The producer admits, "This release is surely one of my harsher, bleak ones... I tried to keep it pure, and again bleak. Also put the keyboards in the shelf for this one; its all guitar and violin through an array of effects..." "Baals (Kitten Trumpeteer Choir)" fades in with what sounds like waves of harsh, scalding feedback -- lets call it "the black metal of ambient." Dens conjures pitiless, post-apocalyptic atmospheres, but imbues them with a residual glow of dignity. The tidal "Masks and Mold Matter" could be a noir soundtrack thats too weird and nightmarish even for David Lynch. Its main sound source sounds like the irradiated molecules of a psych-rock guitar riff by Chromes Helios Creed. What passes for a respite in Innercitys harsh sonic universe comes from "Raragrams," with ill oscillations that seem to have escaped from Gil Mellés groundbreaking Andromeda Strain soundtrack (1971). On "In Abra and Umbra," Dens creates a desolate Plutonian ambience thatll give your ears frostbite, unleashing clouds of unidentified frying sonics. With perverse whimsy, Dens lets some unfeasibly heavy beats intrude in the last minute. "A-Baba-Al-One" defines a new form of chilling horror-film soundtrack; its synths actually shiver and moan. The album closes with "And Dead As All Black Acts," which sounds like a yeti trying to pound its way out of a casket. Anguished tones of unclassifiable extremity and distress send us out on a note of ecstatic bafflement. You realize youve reached the end of this record alive, and youre much stronger because of it.

Your desperateness becomes amazement as you start paving paths to link and sync barren levels of reality and start to familiarize with different formless and shape-shifting entities manifesting as inhabitants of apparently different inner worlds. You are being prepared for a major evolutionary phase-shift regarded unreal and I believe that is what future life is about, the differences in realities, and their level of importance in the whole picture.

"Our sublabel Cititrax, is proud to present new music from Brooklyn based synth duo Innergaze. Their second LP, “Mutual Dreaming” is a highly anticipated release and were ecstatic that the vinyl is finally out. “Innergaze drag us slightly further back into the glorious cradle of dance music. Their music, crushed and static, obscured by sound. EBM, coldwave, early techno fight it out for dominance of the drum machine. Casually brutal vocals force their way through from the Death Factory. As if Chris & Coseys dalliances with the Eurythmics had conjured a restless pioneering demon to duet with Annie Lenox but had instead ended up consuming her. Celestial synths coexisting with the industrial landscape bellow.” -20 Jazz Funk Greats. “Innergaze is the musical project of Aurora Halal and Jason Letkiewicz – Letkiewicz is known for his work with or as Manhunter, Steve Summers and Rhythm Based Lovers; Halal a video editor and director. Its pretty clear that Innergaze is a wholly collaborative effort, as Letkiewiczs penchant for pulsing beats and organic house mingles with the hazy, psychedelic new-age atmospheres that shine through Halals video work, together creating something that could loosely fall under the ‘minimal synth tag. Dont expect some sort of easily placeable sound, though – Innergaze has far more personality than your average electro duo, relying on intuition, emotion and a good jam session to create their music, not a rigid set of pre-determined parameters. Together, its like a robot coated in human flesh, sentient yet vaguely artificial, and like most cyborgs portrayed on TV, quite beautiful. Im pretty sure they are in love, too, which is an interesting dynamic for a sound that often relies on aesthetic impassiveness.” - YellowGreenRed. The “Mutual Dreaming” LP is a limited pressing of 999 copies on 160 gram vinyl, housed in a high quality full color printed sleeve featuring a collaborative artwork concept by Veronica Vasicka and Aurora Halal." -Cititrax.

Country: Japan

"An enigma. A band records their second album in 1985, but sits on it for 29 years and releases it as a new album, not a "lost gem," in 2014. The authors of this enigma are known as Inryo-fuen, a Japanese trio formed in 1978, meeting via a Surrealism circle in Yokohama. With the intent of applying the Surrealist idea of Automatic Writing to sound, they began performing their improvised music in 1980, with their first performance at the legendary Tokyo venue Minor, which was run by Takashi Sato of Pinakotheca Records. This second album was recorded after the release of an LP and several singles during the period 1980-1984. The trio of Jun Harada (drums), Naoyuki Masuda (guitar), Masamichi Oyama (keyboard), although involved in the Tokyo/Yokohama underground/independent rock scene, were seemingly sui generis, avoiding punk and post-punk stylistic style-markers, yet decidedly not a part of any synth-pop or electro movements, either. This album, Ho-aku, was recorded in 1985. In the studio, the band projected slides of photos which Masuda had taken in Spain, and used these images as a springboard for the recording process. Still active, the band is, in all likelihood, the longest-running fixed-personnel improvised music group in Japan. Inryo-fuens Ho-Aku. A new album. Recorded in 1985. Experience the enigma." - EM. Some of you may remember we had tons of copies of the first INRYO-FUEN LP and flexidisc (reissues also coming soon from EM) as well as all the other Cragale releases way back in the late 90s - amazing label!

Lets do it." We talked to the band after the gig and they were down -- it was recorded, mastered by our friend Todd Cavallo, and sent off to the plant. Insayngel is Calder, Caitlin, Richard, and John. Calder and Caitlin are Vizusa and used to jam Excepter, and Richard and John are the brutal rhythm unit of Sightings. An intriguing combination of players to say the least, this LP brings a 30th Century sound to the history of New York City. The locked, wrecked rhythms, desparate, gorgeous wails, and shredded, anxious guitars are symphonic, undulating, impossible.

The white industrial cardboard box includes an audio CD, a 12-page booklet, five graphical scores plus Roulette, a clock-like gadget originally used as the score of the aleatory composition with the same title. The music on the CD includes the digitally re-mastered edition of their only (and impossible to find) LP, privately pressed in 1977, plus two previously unreleased long compositions, for more than an hour of a great musical experience. About: Insiememusicadiversa (Different Collective Music): A remote part of the world staged the hidden and extraordinary musical utopia of Insiememusicadiversa, an experience of collective music that devoured and assimilated the seeds of the musical avant-garde of the second half of the twentieth century, mixing Cage and Cardew, DIY aesthetics and free jazz, fluxus and electronic/concrete music, nihilism and mal de vivre. Founded in Umbria (a region of central Italy) in the early 70s by Terzilio Mancinelli, creative genius and visionary composer, Insiememusicadiversa was the representation of Sound as a way of living, as a devouring obsession, a breathing and pulsating paradigm. Its a lucid delirium in which every single sound was -- surprisingly -- rigorously determined (each composition is annotated with mind-blowing graphical scores). Insiememusicadiversa was looking for collective music, often played with self-built or invented electronic instruments, including in its timbre-filled landscape the remains and debris of music shattered into tiny fragments." - Die Schachtel.

"A bizarre love triangle strung between the Baltimore noise scene, contemporary electronics and the New York jazz world, Instant Coffee play improvised music which spontaneously assembles itself into song shapes that blossom, catch fire, explode and distort in ways that are unpredictable and disorienting. A trio comprised of Lisle Ellis, M. C., Schmidt and Jason Willett, the band members boast some unusually checkered pasts. Lisle Ellis is one of the foremost bassists in modern jazz, and having played with the likes of Cecil Taylor, Fred Frith and John Zorn, hes now exploring the electroacoustic combination of traditional jazz techniques with realtime computer processing. M. C. Schmidt has been one half of the conceptually oriented electronic provocateurs Matmos since 1997, and has made music with Bjork, the Kronos Quartet, Terry Riley and Zeena Parkins; in this band he plays a perverse array of percussive objects and many recalcitrant synthesizers. Jason Willett is a Baltimore veteran of avant and out music both on the fringes of rock and noise; he has been in too many bands to mention, but was a longtime member of Half Japanese and collaborator with Jad Fair, and also plays in harsh free noise ensembles such as Leprechaun Catering. In these sessions, Jason plays contact-mic-ed rubber band and an improbable cluster of custom electronics created by noted Baltimore instrument maker Peter B. You would expect the results to fall into a Bermuda Triangle between jazz, electronic music and noise, but in fact Instant Coffees sound rages further afield: unexpectedly lovely ambience, murky Italian movie soundtracks, humid mirages of drone that take sharp turns towards rhythm, and a closing brush with mittel-European mournful lyricism. There are no noodly solos and no tedious, predictably looped grooves: this music stakes itself on a casually surreal series of dissolves from one form to another." - Planam.

The band forged ahead and released another single (1973), album (1973) and two 10" EPs (1974 & 1975). All of their releases were small pressings of 100 copies and to this day, Instant Orange remains virtually unknown. Their homemade sound is a refreshing reflection of their West Coast folk-rock influences that were so prevalent during the 60s and early 70s. All original tracks with inspiration from bands like The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, Love, Sandy Bull and others. Songs full of electric and acoustic guitars with nice doses of McGuinnesque 12-string riffing as well as many unsuspecting surprises (antiquated electronic effects, rambling rural explorations, long jams, experimental moves, stoner banter and other weirdness between songs, caveman fuzz, etc). A solid listen with enough original imagination to keep it interesting without the band creating an identity crisis by trying too hard to be something else than themselves. Hear it all on this limited double album, but grab it before it becomes elusive like some of San Bernardinos motorcycle riding inhabitants. 450 numbered/glossy heavy gatefold sleeve/180 gram pressing/insert." - Shadoks.

"Forming out of the musical insurgence that was the NoiseFest at White Columns Gallery in 1981; Interference coalesced around three key figures of New Yorks downtown scene: Anne DeMaranis, David Linton and Michael Brown. DeMaranis had just parted ways with an early incarnation of Sonic Youth and co-curated the NoiseFest with Thurston Moore. Linton had headed to NYC a few years earlier with then school/band mate Lee Renaldo, eventually hooking up with Rhys Chatham for a three year stretch. Brown, then a twenty six year old PhD candidate at NYU, had recently broke rank with Rhys Chatham and drafted a wholly unconventional percussive approach to the fender bass. From their inception through their eventual fragmentation 30 months later, Interference charted their course across the stages available to them: CBGBs, The Mudd Club, The Kitchen etc., ultimately swelling to a quartet with the addition of fellow Rhys Chatham veteran Joe Dizney. In 1982 they recorded this LP at Radio City. Originally slated for release on Josh Baer and Glen Brancas legendary Neutral records, the record has remained unreleased, until now." Bonus LP contains remixes by David Last, Doily, Criterion, Binsang AKA Toshio Kajiwara, Bubblyfish & glomag And QPE. Printed inner sleeves with artwork and liner notes...

Title: Sov Gott Rose-Marie
Format: CD
Label: Silence
Country: Sweden
Price: $16.00
"CD reissue of this all-time Swedish underground classic, originally issued on the Scandinavian Love label in 1968. International Harvester were the second incarnation of Bo Anders Perssons group, after Parson Sound (whose early sound experimentation was finally documented in 2001 by Subliminal Sounds). Early in the 60s Bo Anders Persson had envisioned a new kind of communicative music -- would it be possible to create a more contemporary kind of rhythmic music that could play the same role as traditional folk music, a music that was both sensual and transcendent? In 1967 came the answer. The hypnotic feelings of Terry Rileys eternity music + the rough-riffing of The Rolling Stones = a new alchemical wedding. Pärson Sound was formed, which started to perform publicly in the summer of 1967. The next year they changed the name into International Harvester, taken from the American company manufacturing agricultural machines, trucks and ambulances. The astonishing thing about their two official recordings is the complete freedom of the music, inspired by a Terry Riley-esque repetitive song structure. The atmospheres of these songs are both utopian and dystopian, mixed with an early environmental awareness. Sov Gott Rose-Marie starts with the strongest of statements: the Latin death hymn "Dies Irae," played like it was a medieval heavy rock-theme. This was music of turmoil and inner upheaval, mostly played in the slowest of rhythms, but still with a sense of constant change. Theres constant juxtapositions going on between documentary sounds and floating states of mind; hard rocking tunes, demonstrations against the war in Vietnam, bird song, sounds from police radio, psychedelic tranquility, lullabies." -Silence

Title: Free Psychedelic Poster Inside
Format: LP
Label: Alga Marghen
Country: Italy
Price: $26.00
"Alga Marghen presents a reissue of Intersystems Free Psychedelic Poster Inside (1968). Intersystems occupied a difficult-to-reach critical nook between the many tropes that had established to frame the various artistic trends of 1960s. Announcing itself with a quivering beam of fluorescent sound, the beginning of Intersystems Free Psychedelic Poster Inside feels as though its slowly piercing right through your frontal lobe. Blake Parkers poetry is a dark glimpse into mundane domesticity and the suburbs. One cant help but sense that theyre being brainwashed: the slow metamorphosis of sound is juxtaposed against Parkers even-tempered yet electronically-tampered-with speech. There are occasional hints at the twitchy energy of Peachy (NMN 093-2LP), but everything is braced by a spine of lean, cool tones, making Free Psychedelic Poster Inside a far more stark outing than either of its predecessors. Yet the sense of impending danger and general volatility found in the rest of the catalogue is still present - if not amplified. In contrast to Peachy, the shapes the music cuts are smooth rather than jagged, but one is never sure just when Parkers strangely uninflected voice will emerge from the blinding aggregates of pure color. While these clusters of glowing sustain assert an aggressive mesmerism, they serve as a primer for the ears, ominously readying them for virtually anything to happen. When something does, theres often a sense mild alarm on the listeners part even when said change comes in the form of a reprieve from the relentless swarms of high frequency - cascades of synthetic giggles, sliding slow elastic melodies, vigorous strobing modulations and bubbling passages of electronic fizz. Musician and insatiable collector Julian Cope, on his exhaustive online chronicle of all things rare and psychedelic, "Head Heritage" calls Intersystems third LP "one of the densest, most oblique collections of sound ever". Re-mastered by John Mills-Cockell. Mastered for cutting by Giuseppe Ielasi. Comes with original LP graphics as well as a new insert. Edition of 300." - Alga Marghen.

Title: Number One Intersystems
Format: LP
Label: Alga Marghen
Country: Italy
Price: $26.00
"Alga Marghen presents a reissue of Intersystems Number One Intersystems (1967). Intersystems works evoke the heightened awareness, intermittent psychosis, intellectual over-stimulation and giddy nihilism of an acid expedition. "Orange Juice and Velvet Underwear" may indeed be the most typically "Psychedelic" cut of Intersystems entire catalog. Its saturated crypto-Indian drone and bent acoustic guitar notes, are upstaged by Parkers lurid-sounding declamations and Mills-Cockells fierce industrial clatter. From there, it all spirals further into a vortex of frayed cacophony and sober-yet-surreal orations. The sixteen-minute "Blackout Mix" is a perfect demonstration of just how tenuous their relationship was to even the furthest-out reaches of psychedelia in spite of their own pronounced use of related terminology. All curdled puddles of synth noise and caustic electronic howls, Parkers fragmentary deadpan bark both penetrates, and is enveloped by, the sticky sonic tapestry. He unfurls a series of disparate images, more-than-flirting with the mundane horror enumerated later (and more explicitly) by the likes of Throbbing Gristle. "Vox 3/13/67" is Number One Intersystems second longest and arguably most varied piece. Johns contributions span dimly elegiac textures, evoking distant chimes and striated choral voices. Parker delivers his writing as staunchly as ever, yet hacks certain words into syllabic mincemeat that spills violently and incoherently into the middles of sentences. Its by no means less anxious than other pieces on the album, but its tension is achieved through an eerily pronounced sense of breath and movement rather more aggressive means. Where elsewhere Number One Intersystems seems to forecast post-punk excursions into avant-noise antagonism, here theres more indication of Mills-Cockells training and more canonical influences in its careful phrase-shaping. Featured throughout the album was a homespun instrument devised by John, dubbed "The Coffin", which was also employed live in their "presentations". Mills-Cockell recalls: "It was a 6 foot long box line with purple satin, housing a long plank strung with many parallel lengths of piano wire held in place with tuning pegs which were adjustable with a wrench we kept on board for the purpose. There were contact mikes which were switchable, just like on a Telecaster except that the switches could permit not only selection of different harmonic spectra when the instrument sounded, but of a variety of loudspeakers in various locations in a performance space." Re-mastered by John Mills-Cockell. Mastered for cutting by Giuseppe Ielasi. Edition of 300. Presented in the original Allied Records sleeve." - Alga Marghen.

Title: Peachy
Format: LP
Label: Alga Marghen
Country: Italy
Price: $26.00
"Alga Marghen presents a reissue of Intersystems Peachy (1967). The sound work of Intersystems cannibalized stray bits of McLuhanism, psychedelia, Cagean experimentalism, and even the modernist gestural strains of nascent electronic music, yet it was all couched within a very particular DIY ethos. Peachy pushes the meticulousness of Number One Intersystems (NMN 093-1LP) even further and, as such, represents a more balanced amalgam of Intersystems various disparate stylistic and emotional elements. The truncated opening cut "Experienced Not Watched" is deceptive, beginning with lush, tuneful organ swells that almost border on the ecclesiastical and washed-out metallic pulsations. Yet, the track comes to an abrupt end. What follows is thinner and more gestural, imbued with both poise and awkward buoyancy, owing more to musique concrète than anything on Number One Intersystems. Each sound is framed within ample negative space, inviting listeners to savor each moment, yet its dynamism, and boisterousness, mischievous character steer it well away from being too precious. This impression is reinforced by the decidedly rugged and opaque timbre of much of the sonic activity. Peachys balance can also be attributed to its consistent flow. The album may superficially be divided into discrete tracks yet the pieces follow one another seamlessly, conveying a single arc, with many continuities and recurring motives. Many of these motives are just mere pithy jolts or shudders of white noise that dart in and out of the aural scenery. In "So They Took The Guns", it matches the gestural profile of the opening cut - its suddenly lopped off, shifting decisively back toward a slice of Parkers grim narrative, planted squarely in the foreground amidst various percolating abstract chatter. Just as the musical textures have a more unified logic, Parkers texts are also more integrated into the total picture, both aurally and thematically. Despite its sharp veerings into death and violence, the abrupt leaps have a more absurd timbre, than one of abjection and morbidity. And the sudden shifts, of course, are complemented well by the restless intensity of Mills-Cockells contributions. Parkers voice is subject to a wider spectrum of electronic treatments than before. Theyre also situated in various places, both spatially and within the mix. Re-mastered by John Mills-Cockell. Mastered for cutting by Giuseppe Ielasi. Edition of 300." - Alga Marghen.

At the vocals Raffaella Risso. Cultural landmarks and music influences were Suicide, Daf, Throbbing Gristle, the german electronic music scene in the years 60/70, composers as Luciano Berio/Stockhausen and the new international postpunk / new wave scene of the period. The instrumentation used in the two first years of activity of the band (which is used in this album ) was Roland JX-3P, Roland Juno-106, Roland Sh-101 and Drumatrix TR-606. Between the end 83 and end 84 the band played in various venues and squat (as the historic Victor Charlie, in Pisa). In this period the band was menaged by Ivan Rosso and Leonardo Borghese, both semi-official members of the band. The last one, Leonardo Borghese, was the "deus ex machina", founder of the independent label "Suoni dal Profondo Nord" (Notes from the Deep North), who produced the first Intolearce demo and other bands of the same town/area.

Title: Teslam
Format: CD
Label: Abduction
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"The Invisible Hands is a transcontinental collaboration between Alvarius B. (Alan Bishop of Sun City Girls) and four stellar young musicians from Cairo, Egypt: Cherif El Masri, Aya Hemeda (both formerly of the popular Egyptian group Eskenderella), Adham Zidanand Magued Nagati. On Teslam, The Invisible Hands expand the already panoramic range of their eponymous debut LP with a haunting set of melodic, impeccably crafted songs whose vintage psych/hard-rock edge conjures up early Alice Cooper almost as often as it recalls Sun City Girls and 20th-century icons like Ennio Morricone and Serge Gainsbourg. The bands exquisite sonic palette is deepened by Cairo-based guest musicians Mohamed Ibrahim, Mohamed Moe Asem, andSammy Sayed, as well as by longtime SCG compatriot Eyvind Kang. Recorded in Cairo between 2013 and 2014, Teslam represents a further evolution of Alvarius B.s peerlessly idiosyncratic pop sensibility, which is just as volatile and unclassifiable as his more experimental work. His songwriting -- both on his own, and in partnership with Cherif El Masri -- is marked by a unity of purpose that has compressed countless musical and emotional incongruities into a handful of sharp-edged, pitch-black jewels. A brooding track composed by keyboardist Adham Zidan (The Great Implosion) perfectly complements the records uneasy mood. As usual, Alvarius B.s lyrics comprise an apocalyptic pile-up of cruel metaphors at the intersection of culture, politics and international crime. But they take on new power and new implications as sung by El Masri and Hemeda, whose seductive voices are as inviting as a welcome mat at the gates of hell. Each song stands on its own while also fitting into a planet-sized jigsaw puzzle detailing dark associations and secret narratives that stretch back as far as the foundation of the world. Arguably Alvarius B.s most accessible work to date, Teslam is a generously baited steel-jaw trap for the unwary listener. Like The Invisible Hands 2013 debut,Teslam inevitably reflects the precarious political circumstances in which it was conceived and recorded. As such, its a vivid document not just of an unlikely musical collaboration, but also of a critical moment of hope, defiance, rage and sorrow in one of the worlds most venerable cities.

For IOVAEs track we get slow churning crackle, pop and hiss from the "Grinder" (a series of ancient military oscillators) that builds into what sounds like the church bell tones of a satanic mass echoing through the devils canyon. 3 LEGGED RACE is Robert from HAIR POLICE and EYES AND ARMS OF SMOKE. For the Race side we get one ominous heavenly droning swelling tone which is given the extreme reverb treatment until it sounds like a white washed blissed out radiant hum. The artwork was designed by Robert and is a must see. One sheet of lines with a transparency of lines. but when one is placed over the othere, you start to see a hidden image. Also just moving the transparency around on top of the other page makes alot of tripped out intersecting lines. like i said one you have to see, def one of the best looking, most intresting covers in EPICENE history. Limited edition of 300 copies, split release with Mark of Black Tents Gentian label." - Epicene.

"Though the term musical theater often conjures up horrific images of over-acting and lifes foibles resolved in song form, theres no inherent evil in the concept of combining the two. Lexington, Kentuckys Auk Theater offer simple pantomimes with cartoonish props, set to a soundtrack that combines a warped aural accompaniment with diegetic effects that act as guides for the narrative. Irene Moon, the groups founder, takes everyday activities and social interactions (in this case, a visit to the dentist), magnifying the absurd and surreal, to create her otherworldly scenes. On her side of this 7⿝, a split picture disc with New Yorks Ortho, one must imagine the visual aspects of ⿿Auk Dentist⿝ as clued by the music, though, with Moons penchant for the weaving of samples, electronic noises, and isolated vocal recordings, its hard to pinpoint exactly what could be happening. A ringing phone, the ominous sound of the drill, and a voice-over from what was probably a high school psychology filmstrip offer clues, but, in the end, the music neednt rely on the story, and Moons psychedelic pastiche remains just as hypnotic in its purely aural form. Ortho, capitalizes, it seems, on Moons love of entomology, with their contribution to the disc, with plenty of buzzing and flittering sound. Its not hard to imagine the music as the magnified sounds of insects, with the rapid flapping of wings, scurrying feet, and probing antennae. "Ortho demonstrates how humans would benefit by behaving more like insects⿝ is a title thats almost longer than the groups side of the slab, but its a useful guide when it comes to listening to Orthos buggy noise." - Adam Strohm (FakeJazz).

Title: A Fragile Geography
Format: LP
Label: Room40
Country: Australia
Price: $24.00
"Rafael Anton Irisarris A Fragile Geography is a record cast in a climate of unsteadiness and transition, reflecting upon the current state of everyday living. Recorded over 2014 and 15, the record bears the marks of difficult terrain -- personal, political, social, and cultural. It tips its hat to the complex and unpredictable dynamics of the contemporary world, correlating concerns both macro and micro. Compositionally, the music mirrors the tensions of contemporary America, contrasting passages of great beauty and calm with harrowing waves of density and pressure. A Fragile Geography also charts Rafael Anton Irisarris personal journey of transience and tumult. His entire studio, audio archives, and possessions were stolen while moving from Seattle to New York, forcing him to rebuild from ground zero. But such a tabula rasa moment also brought with it a chance for renewal, and for reductive experimentation. This experience birthed a range of fresh approaches and ideas, many of which became central to the aesthetic pillars of this record. "Empire Systems," the albums centerpiece, perfectly encapsulates this mood of flux; a rich and harmonically saturated monolith of sound, restless, and constantly reaching outward. Like much of the album, it is considered, but not excessively labored; open, but never unruly. A Fragile Geography is an exercise in the art of maximal minimalism."

"The totality of Edwin Stevenss vast appeal as a musician isnt usually something you can get to grips with by listening to one record alone. As the alpha member of the Manchester underground music nerd set hes played regularly in at least five completely stylistically unconnected formations at any one time and probably more like 50 in total. Disappointment is exactly the kind of record I always dreamed about putting out by an Ed-led project and only knowingly incongruously titled in the sense that it might be a response to the arrogance fundamental to Manchesters depressingly irrepressible musical heritage. Its a unification of everything hes been brilliant at within various contexts. I love to see him ecstatically ripping it up ostrich freestyle in Desmadrados Soldados de Ventura, Zweiters, and Yerba Mansa. But that doesnt mean I dont want him to sing me beautiful sincere Irma songs of apology and regret or slaughter his guitar like its an opponent in a Wrestlemania contest, like he does in Klaus Kinski. All those normally disparate elements coalesce on this wondrously weird, hypnotic, earnest, outer limits rock record, which is why I was so bloody keen to put it out when he first played it to me in his kitchen last autumn. Not that hed have struggled to get anyone else to do it. Listen to the thing -- its ruddy sublime, which makes his one word sign-off on the sleeve notes all the more annoying: “Sorry,” he says. Pfft!" --Nick Mitchell, founder, Golden Lab Records, December 24, 2014.

Title: Tamafuri
Format: CD
Label: PSF
Country: Japan
Price: $20.00
"An ultra mysterious blast from the deepest underground! Iro were (and still are) a little-known shamanic improvisation unit, consisting of Kawasaki-based husband and wife Shizuko and Toshio Orimo. Formed in 1981, they released a number of cassette-only albums during the 80s. Deeply suspicious of the merest whiff of commercialism, they never took the opportunities for greater fame -- in spite of some substantial media coverage in Japan at the time. The duo still perform today, in a more ethnic, esoteric ritual mode. Tamafuri was originally released on cassette on their own Shaman Label in 1985. Its a fantastically charged blend of ultra-propulsive ethnic drone, free jazz drumming with harsh noise textures and intense, almost possessed vocal incantations from Shizuko. As Takeo Udagawa puts it, their high-energy improvisations feel intensely dangerous, like a nuclear reactor-core going into meltdown, throwing out waves of radiation and intense heat. A must for any true believer in the power of wailing blurt -- from Keiji Haino, to LAFMS, to Takayanagi. Comes with great contextual liner notes (in Japanese and English) by fringe music researcher Takeo Udagawa. And, yes, Shizuko and Toshio are indeed the parents of young shakuhachi sensation, Sabu Orimo." - PSF

“Its late 1981 and Attritions embryonic Black Prince Studio has set up in band member Ashley Niblocks bedroom in Coventry, England. Analog synthesizers, drum machines, and a primitive four-track recorder with tape echoes and spring reverbs. They would write and rehearse regularly during those early days. Niblock would also moonlight with two of his school friends, Edward Pearson and Richard Woodfield as Irsol. A different beast from the anarchic post-punk noise and rhythms of the early Attrition, Irsol was a more polished affair, and far more influenced by the electronics of, for example, Tangerine Dream. By summer 1982 they had produced their first self-released tape, First Contact, which attracted some attention from local figures, including Alan Rider, who released their second tape, Half Life, on his Adventure in Reality label in 1983, and reissuedFirst Contact in 1984. Half Life contained a side of studio recording and a side of a one-off live show at the old school -- founded in 1344 -- that they all attended. The track "Reesoning" from First Contact appeared on Volume Five of Gary Levermores legendary Third Mind five-tape compilation Rising from the Red Sand (1983).

Title: Tetsuo OST
Format: LP
Label: Kaijyu-Theater
Country: Japan
Price: $24.00
"23 years after its first release on CD, the Original Soundtrack of the first two episodes of the famous trilogy Tetsuo, composed by Chu Ishikawa, is being released on vinyl record. This classic of Japanese underground cinema, directed by Shinya Tsuakamoto, first hit the big screen in 1989. Its mix of gore and science fiction paved the way for the cyberpunk movement in Japan. Tetsuo does not follow a classical film narrative but rather consists in a series of twisted sequences, which makes it unique and considered by many as a height of experimental cinema. It opens on a car crash where a man - the anti-hero of the film -- is hit by a car. His body then becomes a sort of magnet that inexorably attracts all the metal objects present in our society, slowly transforming him into a monster made of flesh and steel! The trilogys uncompromising and violent directing, supported by its original score, soon contributed to make it a classic. As a matter of fact, director Tsukamoto and composer Ishikawa managed to produce a sensory experience in which visual and hearing assaults go hand in hand to make it a total work of art. The film is at the crossroads of Metropolis, Videodrome and Blade Runner in its depiction of a post-industrial world where machines have surpassed humans and taken possession of their bodies. Chu Ishikawa, born in 1966, started his musical career in various bands when he was only 15 years old. He then gained some success as a founding member and percussionist of two industrial bands: Zeitlich Vergelter and Der Eisenrost. That is when he came to the attention of Tsukamoto, who asked him to compose the soundtrack of his film. Ishikawas transgressive and provocative music is the perfect sound illustration of the Tetsuo trilogy. Mixing techno drum loops with a dark ambient mood flirting with harsh noise, the Japanese composer translates the convulsive and metallic quality of Tsukamotos images into oppressive sound blasts that will delight the fans of Test Dept. Foetus and Esplendor Geometrico. Limited to 1000." - Kaijyu-Theater.

Country: Japan
Price: $20.00
"New solo work from the Japanese undergrounds drummer of choice. Six years on from 1999s masterful Red Night, Toshiaki Toshi Ishizuka is back with a new set of deep, shimmering nightscapes for percussion. Toshi has been a pivotal figure in the Japanese underground since the late 60s, when he founded Japans first radical, politically-engaged punk group Zuno Keisatsu. Since then he has been the sticksman of choice for howling folk-poets Kazuki Tomokawa, Yasuki Fukushima and Kan Mikami, as well as making up one corner of the Vajra trio with Mikami and Keiji Haino, and leading his own group Cinorama. More recently he has been active in the Sanjah trio with Mikami and altoist Masayoshi Urabe. Drum Drama is Toshis third album of solo percussion. The first, Kaze no Yami, was released in a miniscule edition in 1991. Since a full reissue is for various reasons impossible, Toshi has included two mesmerizing pieces from Kaze no Yami here, alongside three new pieces. Toshi has a unique approach that blends overtly textural work (rubbing cymbals, rolling metallic balls, bowed gongs) with mountain-deep kick-drum bombs and flashes of staccato martial snares. The results are deeply evocative nocturnal landscapes of immense percussive variety, subtle, lyrical, cinematic and even soulful. Another major statement from an unsung thinker." -Alan Cummings

The first one, Meritie, introduced her lovely sense of musical wonder to the world and garnered excited praise from the more astute ears at The Wire (UK) and Dusted Magazine (USA). The 2nd release Palaa Aurinkoon was equally boss and brought Islaja to North America with compatriot Finnish folk experimentalists Lau Nau and Kuupuu where she mesmerized audiences with a captivating minimalism of sweet singing and small toy and hand-made instruments played by herself and companion Jukka Raisanen. In 2007, she released her third album Ulual Yyy which expanded her sound into further psychedelic paths. Since then Islaja has played numerous large festivals including Eurosonic, Sonar and the 2006 All Tomorrows Parties/Nightmare Before Christmas curated by Thurston Moore. Animal Collective invited Islaja to play a two week support tour with them in Europe. Blaze Mountain Recordings is a live document, all music and words by Merja and played by Merja and Jukka.

Title: Keraaminen Pää
Format: LP
Label: Fonal
Country: Finland
Price: $18.00
"LP version. Islaja is the recording alias of Merja Kokkonen, a musician and visual artist from Helsinki, currently based in Berlin. A regular contributor to the more psych/folk and improv-oriented Kemialliset Ystävät and Avarus, Islajas recordings are by contrast almost entirely self-contained, reflecting the more personal nature of her music, and a natural affinity towards an independent/DIY aesthetic. Her fourth album for Fonal, Keraaminen Pää (trans. "Ceramic Head") contains many shades of black. It also bears witness to a shift in perception and execution; yet the thread that weaves its way through all Islajas work remains resolute, visible and intact. If Islajas previous albums for Fonal appear to exhibit a more overtly pastoral nature, this in part feels coincidental, or secondary to something much larger and more difficult to define. From the earliest Islaja recordings, Merja has made the simplest of instrumentation work to her own ends, displaying a disquieting combination of innocence and fearlessness, and a seemingly innate ability to transcend the confines of a genre. It is the same singular approach and vision that informs Keraaminen Pää -- born largely of whatever instruments were on hand; if the sound has shifted into more electronic terrain, it remains as immersive and subtly evocative as ever. When sketching out the dimensions of Keraaminen Pää, Islaja was clear about one thing: the album should have a soul within, preferably silky thin and translucent, like a jellyfish swimming around in the ocean. During the recording process, however, Keraaminen Pää turned into a heavy, robot-molded disc of clay. It spins, shines, pops and crackles, all the while escaping definition. This is also is the first Islaja album to feature English translations of Merjas lyrics. The songs on Keraaminen Pää were written, composed, and recorded on three continents over a period of three years, with Islaja performing, recording and mixing the majority of the album herself. The recordings may recall the waves crashing on the Bight of Benin, the frogs croaking on Lantau Island, the starry sky above Roihuvuori, Helsinki, or maybe a one-euro pizza in Berlin. Less fractured and more fleshed out than previous Islaja recordings, the songs still careen recklessly, pulsing and shifting with a life of their own." -Fonal

When sketching out the dimensions of Keraaminen Pää, Islaja was clear about one thing: the album should have a soul within, preferably silky thin and translucent, like a jellyfish swimming around in the ocean. During the recording process, however, Keraaminen Pää turned into a heavy, robot-molded disc of clay. It spins, shines, pops and crackles, all the while escaping definition. This is also is the first Islaja album to feature English translations of Merjas lyrics. The songs on Keraaminen Pää were written, composed, and recorded on three continents over a period of three years, with Islaja performing, recording and mixing the majority of the album herself. The recordings may recall the waves crashing on the Bight of Benin, the frogs croaking on Lantau Island, the starry sky above Roihuvuori, Helsinki, or maybe a one-euro pizza in Berlin. Less fractured and more fleshed out than previous Islaja recordings, the songs still careen recklessly, pulsing and shifting with a life of their own." - Fonal

"Islaja might well be a forgotten islet somewehere or a name of courageous sword swinging heroine in a forgotten fable. For one, Islaja is a certain young woman that has sang and played an album full of heart-rending intimate music. Half a year of quietly working in her homestudio brought about a cluster of transcendental tunes that are now being released as an album called Meritie. One song Islaja whispered in a fewer and another with an oriental monkey. At times it is impossible to tell where the sounds are coming from. The variety of instruments is vast, but all have their space and strong belief in the power of individual sounds can be heard. Islaja has exceptional sense of harmony that alone can make the album a magical listening experience. The voice of Islaja sounds bravely over the screaming crazed sea-gulls. It is stunningly honest. This is a great victory in these times of sadness." Sami from Fonal said "Its a bit like Kemialliset Ystävät and Fursaxa but with a more traditional Finnish feel to it. Its a girl from Finland whos done all the stuff alone. Its one of the records in the Fonal catalogue I nowadays listen to most."

"Islaja masters the elements of our universe one by one or maybe the sea and the sun are embracing Islaja, it must go both ways but there, where all this happens, the listener is received with clattering sounds of paradise and drowned by surprise in a swell that stretches all the way to the dark rock bottom. Whats down there? Fight the rotten faith so itll wither until it hardly exists, believe it! Islaja shows the way of rhythm, no it isnt a straight one, the way of chant, it cant be foreseen. Textures evolve into new ones. Scabby rhythms spin socks on feet, skin burns into ashes in the attacking heat. Senile wine glasses wail of happiness. Fallen off beard hair are woven into a scarf that lets the wind blow fast right through it. If only life would be like this more than just an hour at a time! After everything the sun blesses the way with Islajas words, it spits out of its system the wet and transformed listener, who longs for the light again. Islajas second album was born in two different places that have been sewed up one to another with the binds of words and a rich sound world. Here and there, Islajas friends have lent their voices for this world. Loose guitar paths, long strokes of wind instruments, glasses and toys that clink, rattle and tinkle, rhythms, keyboards and Islajas wonderful, many-faceted voice are cooing in a miraculous net. The album is a spontaneous texture of muscle, cartilage and liquid, everything organized in such a surprising way that one cant believe right away that its a human being, but soon enough it becomes clear that its a most ingenious creature. It evolves by itself. It tells us how everything metamorphoses, it relies on itself and infuses belief into the listener that one can change the world. The secret place where the creature invites the listener is revealed to be our real world, it lives here with us." - Lau Naukkarinen.

"Islajas third album is a journey deeper into the world that for us is a dream and a fairytale, but to her a reality. Islaja as a concept has turned into a star that is expected to shine with brilliance. But she is something else. The songs tell us about the decay of our age, its demise and immorality, its plunge into heartless consumer culture. Islaja herself does not burn in that same fire. Her fire is an inner fire. Behind her eyes and in her heart you can see and hear her true charisma. True dedication and utter disrespect for the artificial authority made by men. Yet she is not the self-destructive Nico or the eccentric Björk. But a good woman. A tough one. Her eyes can burn a hole in you. Her songs are poems and stabbing knives. - Sami Sänpäkkilä." "Islaja is Merja Kokkonen, a young visual artist and musician living and working in Helsinki, Finland. Islaja records her music at home using a rainbow of instruments to accompany her personal vocal delivery sung in Finnish. She has performed with Avarus, Kemialliset Ystävät and is also a member of Hertta Lussu �?ssä, a free-folk super trio with Lau Nau and Kuupuu." - Fonal.

"Danny Ben Israel established himself as one of the most extravagant musicians to emerge from the Israeli Psychedelic scene of the 60s, mostly because of his extraordinary album from 1970, Bullshit 3 1⁄4. (reissued on vinyl by World In Sound Label in 2012) Originally, Danny was one of the lead singers of Israel Military entertainment groups of the 60s and became one of the greatest voices of Hebrew music in Israel of the 1960s. After his musical experiment in Europe, recording pop music, he returned to Israel and was identified more and more with the Hippie ideas of the time, and was attracted to the psychedelic rock style. After recording “Bullshit 31⁄4”, which was recorded in Eshel Studios in Tel Aviv and released in 1970, which turned out to be a commercial failure, Danny did not stop there, and at the same time continued to record new songs, known as “The Katmandu Sessions” are somewhat characterized by volunteerism, and the participating artists were various musicians - some of whom are unknown. His texts dealt with controversial issues – politics, sex, drugs etc. and were not broadcasted on the radio. The New recordings were archived after his attempt to release the material in the US failed, and saw light in 2002 with the release of a CD on the label “Meri Records”, and is now published in the worthiest of formats and for the first time: the vinyl record.

Title: Unmoored by the Wind

Price: $14.00
“Kayla Cohen, a.k.a. Itasca, is a folk guitarist and songwriter from New York State. She has released several small press CD-rs and cassettes over the past five years, and began recording as Itasca after a move to Los Angeles in 2012. She records at home, taking inspiration from the fringes of LAs open space and natural land.

On Itascas latest full-length, Unmoored By The Wind, Kayla Cohen achieves new levels of clarity and expansiveness. Where 2012s Grace Riders on the Road reveled in homemade intimacy, Unmoored By The Wind  opens to the world, reaching a timeless, near-baroque yearning; each of these eleven tracks burns with a unique vision. At once soft-spoken and virtuosic, Cohens fingerpicking mesmerizes, laying gauzy groundwork for vocal work David Keenan rightfully cited as “courtly…dazzling.” Its a spacious set of songs, one you can wander into, flowing seamlessly between wistful interludes a la Bob Desper and fully-fledged verses of powerful, often beguiling imagery. “Two male shapes are standing/ Shrouded in white cloth” sings Cohen on “Natures Gift,” with a plaintive candidness that echoes Sibylle Baier. “Theyre looking at me/ Sort of smiling/ Seems as if Ive called them here.” Cohens voice has a windburnt quality reminiscent of Lal Waterson or Collie Ryan, but its tempered with sweetness, and on songs like “Colt In Hiding” she realizes an angelic luster. More than ever before, though, Cohens confident singing is laid bare; vocals ride on top of arrangements, taking their rightful place in the forefront. The effect is arresting. Cohen has achieved new levels of clarity, while staying true to the seductive ghostliness that has come to characterize her sound.” - New Images.

"Keyboardist and former member of the Far East Family Band, Akira Ito embarked on a solo career making what has been described as "floating electronics," using a medley of analog synths, guitar, bass, drums, and choral vocals. He released Japanesque in 1981; an album considered to be illusionary mind music at its finest and rarest. Its a gorgeous, mellow, floating, cosmic album, perhaps like a more organic Kitaro. Ito lends his sonic signature sounds of cosmic rock to full effect on Japanesque, reminding us why the Far East Family Band were considered to be the foremost innovators of early electronica.

Format: CD
Label: Edition Omega Point
Country: Japan
Price: $26.00
"This CD is a remastered reissue of a very limited CD-R released by Omega Point in 1999. This is the sixth volume in Edition Omega Points Experimental Music Of Japan series. Atsuhiro Ito was born in 1965. He launched his career as a visual artist in the late 80s, and in 98 began presenting sound performances at art exhibitions. Ito made use of fluorescent lighting (which is also an element of his art installations) in the creation of an original musical device called the Optron. In addition, Ito is active in a number of musical units. One of these is Optrum, the explosively loud "extreme optical noise-core band" consisting of Ito and drummer Yoichiro Shin, and another is free jazz trio Kazuo Imai Trio with Kazuo Imai, a guitarist who is also a member of Marginal Consort, and Manabu Suzuki (electronics). He published his own label Gotobai Recordings in 2009. "My homemade instrument is called the Optron -- it outputs flicker-noise of fluorescent lamps as sound directly. In the early years of its conception, it was not only uncontrollable and unstable, but also the sound was so barbaric. However, I had no intention of controlling the system and performing it as music. I recorded the electric phenomenon by flicker of fluorescent lamp innocently. I first named the Optron sound system when I performed a live show after the release of the CD-R. The sound materials of this CD-R were not recorded as noise-performances, but rather, they would be called recordings of phenomenon as effect from experimental works, and an extension of my installation works. This fluorescent performance had not gotten a good reputation from my acquaintances in those days. However, I was interested in the lights and sounds simply, and it is not too much to say that its only a feeling of wow, its so exciting!" --Atsuhiro Ito; Housed in a cardboard paper gatefold sleeve with newly-written liner notes in Japanese & English by the artist himself. Limited edition of 400 copies only." - Omega Point.

In this forgotten place, awash with wonder and enigma, echoing with the booming of sharkskin drums and bone rattles, the rock speaks with the voice of the gods. Weaving strange and terrifying tales, and tales of beauty and joy, Pagan Rites is a breathtakingly exotic tone-poem that will make any Tiki bar come alive.Ìxtahuele is a Swedish exotica band playing in the acoustic, original style of Martin Denny and Arthur Lyman. They come from Gothenburg; a damp, foggy harbor town that, ever since its founding in the early 17th century, has been an international melting pot associated with exotic, faraway destinations ever since the days of the East India Trading Companies. Having grown up with the exciting tales of the sailors and the luscious smells and flavors of the markets, an interest in the romantic and exotic is an integral part of life for the group. Coming from a variety of musical backgrounds, Ìxtahuele strive to combine an immersive, research-like approach with their collective experience in jazz, pop, surf, classical, Latin and world music to create authentic, exciting, and innovative world-class exotica. A large part of their inspiration and style cues come from the old greats -- they are also heavily influenced by classical works, Latin & jazz tunes, indigenous melodies from different regions -- in short, the same kind of influences that inspired the originators of the genre. The aim of the group is to provide the perfect soundtrack to bring your minds eye on a time-traveling, round-the-world trip; taking you to faraway exotic islands, lost lands, and ancient cities -- bringing back the Ottoman Empire, Port Royal, or even the mythical continent of Mu. Ìxtahuele try to push the limits of where they can take you while still staying true to the genre; because after all, the true armchair traveler cant make the Hawaiian Village the destination for every trip, but must also go to the Amazon, Micronesia, the Middle East, the Caribbean, and Indochina." - Subliminal Sounds.
