Title: Holy Letters
Format: CD + 7"
Label: CCD
Country: Japan
Price: $30.00
"Holy Letters is a barely-circulated masterpiece of deeply felt self-expression. Recorded in 1989/1990 by Hiroyuki Usui, Holy Letters beautifully captures the spirit and substance of a half-dozen of the key sub-underground pillars of sound. Working with guitar, vocals, vibes, harmonium, bass, drums, cello, field recordings, digeridoo, and more, Usui-san blends delicate folk, psychedelia, and experimental sounds into a mostly subdued but undeniably glowing suite. The layered but careful instrumentation on tracks like the epic "Holy Letters" and "Troll" backs the alternately plain-spoken and crooning vocals perfectly. Odd touches like snatches of throat singing and bowed vibraphone leap out of the mix at just the right time. There are overt references to the blues (the first track is an oblique cover of "Cold Was The Ground") - but other than the occassional slide guitar touch, the connection is overwhelmingly in the timeless feeling and atmosphere. I can hardly think of anything else like "Holy Letters," but suffice to say if you like Richard Youngs, Popol Vuh, Six Organs of Admittance, Tim Buckley, acid-folk, japanese underground - anything like that - this is an essential purchase. Really, Im not doing it justice. Holy Letters was self-released by Hiro in 1993/1994 or so, primarily to be given away to friends. A handful of copies were sold via Tokyos Modern Music/PSF operation in Japan and by Forced Exposure in the US, but other than that, it disappeared completely. The copies we have are from Hiroyukis original numbered pressing. The CD is accompanied by a two song 7" and housed in a beautiful oversized color gatefold sleeve. Hiroyuki Usuis name pops up in several intriguing places in the apparently still underdocumented Japanese underground lexicon. While he now concentrates mostly on Digieridoo (and his profession of garden design), he once played drums in Fushitsusha (late 70s/early 80s), A-Musik (with the legendary vocalist Phew), Marble Sheep, and several other true-underground outfits." - Bill Kellum.

Title: The Way Out
Format: LP + 7"
Label: Superior Viaduct
Country: USA
Price: $26.00
"The first-time vinyl reissue of the 1979 solo debut from The Homosexuals bassist Jim Welton (a.k.a. L. Voag) includes a bonus 7-inch of the rare Move EP.The Way Out is recommended for fans of Desperate Bicycles, This Heat and Mark Perry. “The start of recording The Way Out crossed over with the last days of my involvement with the Homosexuals. Lovely as they were, the guys were demanding unswerving, vanilla rock n roll fealty from me -- something I just couldnt provide given my need to taste eight thousand musical ideas at once. The gravity around which The Way Out took shape issued from a decidedly asinine idea: what if we lived in a world where the music of the avant-gardists (Stockhausen, Oliveros, Henry) provided the best-selling, chart-topping pabulum of the day, while pop music (as we know it) was an obscure, nigh impenetrable, elitist niche product? L. Voag is a fiction used to describe a character from the pop milieu who, desperate for a hit, attempts to knock out a crossover album combining both worlds. Not surprisingly, he fails miserably.” - L. Voag.

Title: Tapesongs
Format: LP
Label: Arc Light Editions
Country: UK
Price: $30.00
“Tapesongs (1977) is the second of two crucial Joan La Barbara reissues on Arc Light Editions, following Voice Is The Original Instrument (1976) (ALE 005LP, 2016). Joan La Barbara is a composer, performer, sound artist and actor, renowned for her unique vocabulary of experimental and extended vocal techniques, which have influenced generations of composers and singers. This reissue is presented in full collaboration with La Barbara. Tapesongs makes use of early electronics, and multi-tracked tape techniques to manipulate La Barbaras signature extended vocal techniques. It includes two essential pieces: John Cages Solo For Voice 45 and a burning take-down of Cathy Berberian in "Cathing". In 1977, La Barbara was living in NYC, playing concerts internationally and performing regularly with John Cage, who she described as a mentor. "I began working with John Cage in 1976 and we had done several performances of his “Solo for Voice 45” from Song Books in concert," says Joan. "Cage determined the 13-minute version for this version, overlaying all 18-pages of the score so that one hears the entire work in layers. Hearing it again after all these years is wonderful and brings back many memories." "Cathing" uses a recording of a radio interview Cathy Berberian did during the intermission of one of La Barbaras concerts at the Holland Festival: "She basically trashed those of us doing extended vocal techniques," she says. "She used the interview for her own self-promotion rather than taking on the mantle of the “mother” of vocal explorations. Rather tragic, I thought. So I created a work exploring extended vocal techniques and manipulating her spoken voice." "Thunder" is for six tympani and voice, using electronic devices (the same as used in "Vocal Extensions" from Voice Is The Original Instrument), and explores patterns through instruments and real-time composition with two jazz improvising musicians. The original artwork is an incredible shot of Joan buried to her neck in reel -to-reel tape. Remastered from original tapes by Rashad Becker. Kraftliner outer sleeve & art paper inner sleeve.” - Arc Light Editions.

Title: Voice Is The Original Instrument
Format: LP
Label: Arc Light
Country: UK
Price: $30.00
“Voice Is The Original Instrument was the first record released by Joan La Barbara in 1976 on Wizard Records. This is the first time the original LP, with artwork, has been made available again. It has since become iconic as one of the initial examples of extended vocal techniques in experimental music. The human voice is the only instrument on the recordings. The works on Voice is the Original Instrument were some of Joans earliest compositions, researching the possibilities of the voice, in two rigorous études, "Circular Song" and "Voice Piece: One-Note Internal Resonance Investigation", and the more free-form "Vocal Extensions", which uses live electronic processing. "My reason for producing the LP was to get my music out to the world beyond NYC and the major cities in which I was playing concerts," she says. "At that time, Carla Bley and Michael Mantlerhad started JCOA/New Music Distribution Service which handled small independent labels, so there were quite a few artists in the NYC area who were producing their own albums and distributing them through that service." Just out of college and living in a Soho loft in New York, Joan began playing shows in New York with jazz and rock musicians, and with those in the new music scene. "I did commercials, which, strangely enough, led me to Steve Reich," she says. "A composer I was working with, Michael Sahl hired me to do some radio commercials and suggested me to Reich who was looking for singers who could imitate instruments, which was something I had been working on for some time and was part of my exploration of the voice. I worked with Reich on the development of "Drumming", imitating the marimba." - Arc Light Editions.

Title: La Cofradia de la Flor Solar
Format: CD
Label: World Psychedelia
Country: Worlds Leading Terrorist State
Price: $17.50
"Named after a student artistic community 50 km south of Buenos Aires, The Brotherhood Of The Solar Flower was originally formed in 1968 by three of the musically inclined participants. After a compilation appearance and RCA/Vik 7" their only LP, produced by Billy Bond, was finally released in 1971 on the Microfon label. With fourth member Kubero Diaz on lead guitar, the group created a slightly-stoned mix of acoustic/electric fuzz guitars and phased vocals, and the album went on to become one of the most highly-regarded Argentinian rock LPs, alongside releases by Almendra, Vox Dei, etc."

Artist: LA MAISON
Title: Collected Tape Experiments 1980-1984
Format: LP & CD
Label: Spittle
Country: Italy
Price: $24.00
"La Maisons story is essentially an oral one, like for many bands in those years. Casual encounters, records found and exchanged, demos recorded at home, live club shows in a country that in those years was changing socially and culturally at the speed of light, and was molding itself at the rate of a fluid modernity. The tracks of this album, Collected Tape Experiments 1980-1984, all recorded between 1980 and 1984, tell the story of a world where synthesizers and drum machines coexist and replace traditional rock instruments. Where homemade overdubs broaden the spectrum of sonic possibilities and the "cut and paste" of tapes is done, literally, by hand. A world in which the first infatuations for wave and industrial are contaminated with no prejudice by the rhythms and sounds of funk and disco. A milestone for those who want to understand the vibrant landscape of Italian music of the eighties, many times too hectic and elusive to be captured in real time. Twenty one tracks on CD and twelve on vinyl, most of them never published before, see the light of day more than thirty years after their creation." - Livia Satriano.

Title: Blood Moon Riders
Format: LP
Label: Holy Mountain
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Dont be fooled by the King Diamond-style logo. This liberation of inverted progressive surf rock from psychedelic epithets plays like a fan-fiction account of Dick Dales meeting with Sonny Sharrock at Amon Dueuel IIs rehearsal space to discuss the "post-rock" epidemic. Unlike so many other instrumental soundtrack bands who employ ho-hum, choose-your-own-adventure tactics, LA OTRACINA sticks to the rails of their own twisting corkscrews and spine-snapping dives. This work does not lend itself to the standard-fare apathy of background music. Blood Moon Raiders is its own ride, with its own ticket, and the doors are locked after take-off. Pinch some headphones to your dome and situate the rest of your form into a beanbag as you navigate the fibrous landscape of a black-light poster. The tracks flow from a subtle new-age contingency to violent bouts with Laotian street gangs. Remember to pack a sack lunch and strap on a machete before mounting this electric buck-bot. Dont fret-the intention has always been to crack open your skull or drown you. Includes a free MP3 download." -Holy Mountain

Title: Reality Has Got to Die
Format: Double LP
Label: Holy Mountain
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Since 2003, LA OTRACINA has been hell-bent on creating highly visionary music that melds sonic ideas from the outer reaches of heavy and weird. The Brooklyn group has released three full-length albums and twelve mini-albums, along with a slew of splits and compilation tracks on labels including Holy Mountain and band founder ADAM KRINEYs own Colour Sounds Recordings. La Otracinas new double-album is the first to feature drummer Kriney as lead vocalist, which catapults the trio into their most cohesive and focused release to date. Reality Has Got to Die showcases the bands mind-blowing ability to evoke the timeless space-rock magic of Hawkwind, the prog-improv wizardry of King Crimson, the fuck-yeah of early Metallica, and the synthesizer mind-warp of Tangerine Dream, all fused in a Krautrock state of mind. This musical journey through deep and heavy sound worlds envokes images of the emerald beyond and the darkest future alien universe, while also staying rooted in the tradition of rock n rolls ever-winding history. But dont confuse this for faux-New-Age blabber-this is street-wise and from the gut, straight from the minds of three men living their art, sacrificing everything and manifesting a boundless sphere of music, ideas, and imagery. LP version includes a download." - Holy Mountain.

Title: The Risk Of Gravitation
Format: CDR
Label: Colour Sounds
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
⿿The Risk Of Gravitation is the stunning new Summer 08 Tour mini-album by Brooklyns LA OTRACINA, who have long wandered and forged sounds in the hidden lands of heavy psychedelia and progressive space music. This 7 track 32+ minute excursion is a major paradigm shift for the group as drummer Adam Kriney is now on vocal duties as well, adding yet another layer of epic intensity to the swirling chaos of Evan Sobels Fender Bass VI low-end destruction and new guitarist Philippe Ortanezs ecstatically angular bliss-out. This disc shifts between tracks of classic LA OTRACINA free-form freakout brilliance and their current vocal-heavy jams, which put the progressive psych back into early heavy metal while exploring realms of dark doom-sludge thunder and the graceful complexity of early Canterbury jazz-rock. Refusing to be quantified, it is clear that LA OTRACINA remain in an orbit of their own, seeking out the cosmic weird and channeling it through hard rock power! First press limited edition of 100 numbered copies." - Colour Sounds Recordings

Title: Tonal Eclipse of the One
Format: CD
Label: Holy Mountain
Country: USA
Price: $15.50
"La Otracina was formed in Brooklyn, NY, in the summer of 2003 by drummer Adam Kriney and guitarist Joshua Anzano (now of Tee Pee Records Titan) to penetrate the deepest and most surreal realms of psychedelia, prog, and Krautrock, with an emphasis on exploration. Taking heavy nods from psychedelic forefathers (Flower Travelin Band, Guru Guru, King Crimson, Neu!, Yes, Agitation Free, Blue Cheer, Amon Duul, etc.), their music is also rooted in a deep understanding and appreciation of free jazz/improvisation and the wizardry of minimalism - not to mention the extreme sounds of the Japanese underground. La Otracinas brew of cosmic music is a ride across the galaxy, a slice of magical lemon wedges, a rainbow of crystallized comet dust. La Otracina is Adam Kriney on drums, Ninni Morgia on electric guitar, and Jordon Schranz on electric bass. KindaMusik listed La Otracinas Love Love Love 2 CD as one of the top 20 best psychedelic albums of the new millennium, along with releases by Six Organs of Admittance, Bardo Pond, Ghost, and Tower Recordings." - Holy Mountain

"Virtual reality trans-time zone collab between So-Cal sample sister LA Vampires and Madison, WI (though soon to be LA!) neo-Siouxsie Zola Jesus. Despite the distance the respective vibes vibe beautifully. Cold dub rhythms echo down grimy corridors while heartbroken tag-team femme howls come bleeding out of the horizon drenched in spectral delay. Theres a few bangers (Bone Is Bloodstone, Looking In), a few ballads (In The Desert, Vous), and a couple quasi-covers (Searching, No No No), so every mood is given its due. Local photographer (and drummer) extraordinaire Caitlin C. Mitchell even lays down some smoky trumpet on one track. Additional deep space Moog and production duties were handled by City Terrace studio wizard M. Geddes Gengras.

"Episode two in season one of the LA Vampires Collab Chronicles finds her joining forces with elusive alien discotech-head Matrix Metals of the nomadic Outer Limits Recordings cabal. Blurry ornate cassette-loop architectures groove and grind under jazzy Casio canopies while Ms. LA Vamps screws it all down and layers in additional square wave keyboard lines, echo chamber FX, drum machine detailing, low-end throbs, and sings lead on a gold spraypainted microphone. The entire LPs got that melting-on-the-dashboard warped-world tonality of all the best Outer Limits tracks, and the fried radio-rhythm Matrix beats definitely coax out a cool hidden sunbleached LA V faux-pop vocal style not evident on any of her previous vinyl. Elaborately 4-tracked over the summer and microscopically mixed by M. Geddes Gengras, So Unreal is exactly that, and a rad synergistic statement by both parties.

Title: Automatic Radio
Format: CD
Label: Fringes
Country: ITALY
Price: $15.00
"This new Cd by Brandon Labelle includes three new compositions: "Speaking in Tongues": Conflating "human speech" with "animal speech"--a mimicry that draws thetongue outside "idiolectical" usage (to speak as a good boy should)--language and the body become part of the same mechanism of conveying a message; though in turn, this conflation emphasizes the schism that ruptures this process--the tension inherent in "speaking as a body (sensuality)" and "speaking as an individual (social behavior)". "Multitude-Solitude": This work was commissioned by Kunstradio and was produced during a 3-daystay in Vienna in August 2000. In response to the invitation to make a work for radio I decided to produce all the sound-materials while in Vienna, drawing upon a direct relationship to the city and my experience there. This process consisted of primarily two activities: firstly, amplifying pre-recorded sounds of "crowds" from various events and functions in public spaces in Vienna, and re-recording them--in essence, overlaying public spaces and public crowds on top of each other and highlighting the "multiplicity" of overheard voices, and through this, how language becomes abstracted when it is situated against public space; secondly, taking a series of walks around Vienna with contact microphones taped to the bottoms of my shoes. What resulted from these walks was a kind of sonic residue of the meeting between body and space, between private experience and public environment, underscoring how as an individual one is always part of a greater situation." "Pillow Talking"(in collaboration with l. chasse): This work was produced as a parallel performance to a concert by John Hudak at 7hz, San Francisco, September 2000. The parallel performance occurred through recording Hudaks own performance by placing contact microphones on a glass floor from a mezzanine within the performance space. In addition, a second contact microphone was mounted on a metal cooking funnel which I then placed inside my mouth. In essence, the final work is a combination of Hudaks performance and the subsequent "translation" of it as recorded through the microphones. This "translation" is in turn mediated through the architectural structure of the performance space, the metal funnel and through the cavity of my mouth. Edition of 500 copies in oversized cardoboard folder, with a color photo by Renato Rinaldi. Includes the text "Automatic Radio" by Brandon Labelle." - Fringes.

He was part of the groundbreaking Cybernetic Serendipity exhibition in 1968. He even built a robot that won the Alternative Miss World. This is the first time his extraordinary music has been released. Made and recorded using household objects as well as a modified synthesizer (made by a schoolboy in the early 1970s), it ranges from abstract tribal concrète to droning electronic trance. Bruce Lacey has been a busy man. Since the 1950s hes been making film, making music, making art, sculpture, rituals, performances, and more besides. Many of his films have explored the basics of life and sex all with a sprinkle of irony, realism and ritualism. Many of his films have required music, music which Lacey made himself, improvising with bottles, rattles, typewriters and a tape machine. By the early 1970s, Lacey was exploring stone circles and ancient rights; hed also bought a home-made synthesizer from a schoolboy whod advertised it in Exchange & Mart. Hed made it as a home project. A week later Lacey bought a keyboard from another schoolboy in Exchange & Mart. Lacey set about slowly modifying this synth and improvising music influenced by his stone circle visits over the next few years. This music is made only when "The Muse" descends. It is impossible for Bruce to perform this improvised music live. The music he made was occasionally available on cassette at his exhibitions in the 1970s. The late Poly Styrene (who had a copy) compared Laceys music to Tangerine Dream. Lacey had not heard of Tangerine Dream.

Title: The Spacey Bruce Lacey: Film Music and Improvisations Vol. 2
Format: LP
Label: Trunk
Country: UK
Price: $21.00
The second of two volumes. “Bruce Lacey is the quintessential British eccentric. Bruce Lacey is an artist, a musician, a filmmaker, a shaman, a genius and visionary. Since the 1950s hes made film, music, art and performances, and collaborated with everyone fromThe Beatles to Throbbing Gristle. He was part of the groundbreaking Cybernetic Serendipity exhibition in 1968. He even built a robot that won the Alternative Miss World. This is the first time his extraordinary music has been released. Made and recorded using household objects as well as a modified synthesizer (made by a schoolboy in the early 1970s), it ranges from abstract tribal concrète to droning electronic trance. The music will be released across two separate LPs and one CD. Included will be a fine essay about the history of this inspiring figure by BFI/Flipside archivist Will Fowler. Bruce Lacey has been a busy man. Since the 1950s hes been making film, making music, making art, sculpture, rituals, performances, and more besides. Many of his films have explored the basics of life and sex all with a sprinkle of irony, realism and ritualism. Many of his films have required music, music which Lacey made himself, improvising with bottles, rattles, typewriters and a tape machine. By the early 1970s, Lacey was exploring stone circles and ancient rights; hed also bought a home-made synthesizer from a schoolboy whod advertised it in Exchange & Mart.

Title: Uruk Romantic Tales #2
Format: LP
Label: Upside Down Recordings
Country: Italy
Price: $24.00
“First official release from French artist Julien A. Lacroix, Uruk Romantic Tales #2 is a concept album based in a supposable Mesopotamian landscape, hanging between past and future recalling nor one or the other.

Born in 1984, Julien Lacroix works with instrumental recordings since several years ( recent works are distributed as free downloads on julienadrienlacroix.fr ). He recently improved his composing technic including pseudo-historical paradigms, short fantasies, acoustic & processing experimentations.
He picks fragments and ruins scattered on the ground, puts them together, and places them in imaginary scales and narrations lost in living memory. Lacroixs work is capable of suspending time and it transforms it into a vision, a continuous research which leads to an immersive form of music.

In the six passages of this album, he uses different stones and woods as percussion instruments or raw material digitally processed, strings, voices and electronic synthesis in a continuous oscillation between tension and expansion. It reminds the intimate side of Luc Ferrari and Jean-Claude Eloys French electroacoustic, sometimes touching the obscure and abstract sonic compositions of Giancinto Scelsi.” - Upside Down Recordings.

Price: $27.00
"Soprano saxophonist Steve Lacy continued his early exploration of Thelonious Monks compositions on Evidence, originally released in 1961. Lacy worked extensively with Monk, absorbing the pianists intricate music and adding his individualist soprano saxophone mark to it. On this release, he employs the equally impressive Don Cherry on trumpet, who was playing with the Ornette Coleman quartet at the time, drummer Billy Higgins, who played with both Coleman and Monk, and bassist Carl Brown. Cherry proved capable of playing outside the jagged lines he formulated with Coleman, being just as complimentary and exciting in Monks arena with Lacy. Out of the six tracks, four are Monks compositions while the remaining are lesser known Duke Ellington numbers: "The Mystery Song" and "Something to Live For" (co-written with Billy Strayhorn). Edition of 500." - Modern Silence.

Title: Etcétera
Format: LP
Label: Vinilisssimo
Country: Spain
Price: $26.00
“In 1970, after four fantastic singles under the nameNew Juggler Sound, the Peruvian band formed bySaúl Cornejo (guitar), David Levene (lead guitar),Ernesto Samamé (bass), Carlos Salom (organ), and Manuel Cornejo (drums) changed their name toLaghonia and recorded their debut LP Glue for the Mag label. It was an album influenced by the British rock of the era, to which they added fiery guitars full of fuzz and wah-wah, the omnipresent and hypnotic Hammond organ sound, and Latin American percussion and rhythms. A perfect mix of the British beat melodies of the mid-60s, Jimi Hendrixs intense rock, Creams heavy blues, and Santanas Latin rock. Laghonia returned to the studio in 1971 to record their second LP for Mag. Packaged in a clearly psychedelic gatefold sleeve designed by the bands drummer, Manuel Cornejo, Etcétera shares all the elements of the first LP, though on this occasion, the compositions, while keeping their immediacy and featuring strong melodies and choruses, have a more complex structure, ranging from psychedelia to progressive rock through superb, dark King Crimson-esque passages and shining moments of pastoral folk. Sure to be cherished by lovers of Latin American rock, pop, and psychedelia as practiced by such other similar classic bands as Traffic Sound,We All Together, Black Sugar, and Telegraph Avenue. This reissue is presented in a replica of the original gatefold sleeve.” - Vinilissimo.

The album included tracks from their initial singles, which were heavily influenced by the British rock scene of those years, to which they added fiery guitars bursting with fuzz and wah-wah, the ever present and hypnotic Hammond organ sound, and Latin American percussion and rhythms. The result was a wonderful mix of mid-60s British beat melodies, Jimi Hendrixs intense rock, Creams heavy blues, and Santanas Latin rock.

"Lainharts music rings true to the spirit of possibility that once defined electronic music. It brings with it a sense of past, present and future that transcends time, technology and cultural assumptions. Its a music that is beholden to no one, yet informed by a diverse sphere of appreciations, rich in both intellectual and emotional interest, at once distant and interior, actual and implied" --Ron Goldberg. "Lainharts sounds change slowly in their overall shapes. But the changes are slow to keep us aware of the processes of transition that the sounds contain. As Lainhart says it, The natural processes that I tend to like and observe are slow processes, that bear up under active listening... and that active listening at a level of greater detail, so my sounds are sufficiently complex so that they can be listened to in depth." --Joel Chadabe.

"Lakes is the solo outlet for Sean Bailey’s not so cheery take on the world. Sean has been a constant in the Melbourne musical landscape for quite a while. In addition to running the Inverted Crux label he has played is such diverse group settings including, but not limited to, Paeces, Wasted Truth, Tax, and The (Australian) Vivian Girls. Lakes is Sean’s bleak punk, dark folk creature. There is no mistaking the Lakes signature sound, but those who have been following Lakes development over the course of 12 releases can attest that Sean has methodically built on to the gothic Lakes skeleton heard on the earliest releases to where we last heard from him on last year’s Winter’s Blade LP where the Lakes monster was given quite a bit of muscle in large part to a tweak in the recording process. This single picks up where Winter’s Blade left off with perhaps with an extra level of heavy and gloom applied to the structure." - Quemada

Artist: LAMARTINE
Title: Reportage
Format: LP
Label: Finders Keepers
Country: UK
Price: $26.00
"The name Lamartine was a true mystery of library history. In keeping with the habitual culture of library music, the mononymous Lamartine was thought to be one of many creative nom de plumes designed to disguise the true identities of the artists. Having faded from the memories of the ex-employees of the defunct production music departments at CAM and RCA, the truth behind this uncelebrated electronic pioneer had remained a mystery for decades. It wasnt until the 2000s, when the Italian independent production music label Flipper -- the parent company responsible for the imprints Union, Octopus, Flirt, and Deneb, among others -- decided to digitize its catalog, that a gleam of hope appeared via a sealed, misfiled master tape. The archiving team at Flipper found the name "Lamartine" written on a single tape box with the name "Reportage" and corresponding legal papers pertaining to a little-known Italian conductor and composer for stage and popular song named Mr. Radicchi. Fabio di Bari at Flipper recounts that, throughout the extensive paperwork at Flipper, the music of Radicchi or Lamartine was never licensed out for synchronization and doesnt appear on any of the associated labels discographies. "The music was never even pressed on to vinyl and the master tape remained in our store room for all these years," he told Finders Keepers in 2013. After cross-referencing track-times and titles, di Bari could also reveal the full name of the artist to beOdoardo (aka Eduardo) Radicchi -- a senior member of the Italian music scene from the same generation as Nino Rota, Giorgio Gaslini, and Gian Piero Reverberi. Rendered in the hinterland between Italian cinemas penchant for psychedelic rock and the onset of the synthesizer music and Italo disco movements later in the 1970s, LamartinesReportage, recorded in 1974, is part of a community of laboratory projects that researched the capacity of electronic music before it swept the nations media. Lamartine -- once an anonymous, dubious genius in the library micro-genre -- can now be named and recognized as a unique artist with a distinctive sound, adding new colors to the vibrant palette of Italian studio artists and painting a wider sonic picture of the evolution of Italian pop and film music. The Italian library liberation front keeps growing; its the genre that keeps on giving. Its time for artists like Lamartine to name and claim their places in electronic music history." - Finders Keepers.

Title: Wired Open Day 2009
Format: Double LP
Label: Taiga
Country: USA
Price: $34.00
"Wired Open Day 2009 is a vinyl-only release documenting live performances by Alan Lamb, Garry Bradbury, David Burraston, Oren Ambarchi and Robin Fox. Held outdoors during the evening of October 31st at The WIRED Lab, in rural South West, New South Wales, Australia, this 2LP is a document of the event; the result of an artist-in-residence program to explore the sonic possibilities of The Wires, landscape scale installations in rural NSW. The WIRED Lab is an artist-run initiative founded in 2007 to foster art/science collaborations in a rural environment. The initial focus of this project was to establish a site to preserve and expand on The Wires, a distinctly Australian invention that was pioneered by Australian artist Alan Lamb since the 1970s. Wiredlab.org notes that, "Lambs formal investigations of The Wires started in 1976 with his discovery of a 1km stretch of abandoned telegraph wires on a farm in the Great Southern region of Western Australia ... Lamb learnt to record them and later devised compositions with these recordings. When these telegraph lines eventually decayed, Lamb commenced building wire installations primarily for recording. Like the scale of the original telegraph wires, these purpose-built wire installations were not of a domestic scale, they too had a deep connection with nature and spanned 100s of meters across the rural landscape. Although principally functioning like a giant æolian harp, it is not only wind that plays The Wires, it seems that on their own accord The Wires often harmonically sing, vibrate or roar as they react to environmental factors, thereby creating a unique and infinite instrumentation of itself and its surrounds, in the words of David Burraston they are natures microphone." The four sides of Wired Open Day 2009 display the expansive range of the Wire installations built by The Wired Lab. Commencing at sunset, Garry Bradbury and Alan Lamb coax a gentle eco with acoustic recordings into deep and sonorous reverberations on side A. David Burraston and Alan Lamb focus on droplets of zaps and wire oscillations at twilight, with side B culminating in a downpour of crackling spray. At nightfall, Oren Ambarchi applies his mastery of condensed and layered tones on side C, with shuddering overtones, husky drones and rich clusters of sustain. Robin Fox concludes, in the dark, on side D, mashing off-kilter rhythms with a tumble of staccato bursts and fuzzy crunch. An edition of 500 double LPs in hand-numbered matte-varnished Stoughton tip-on gatefold jackets, Wired Open Day 2009 was mastered by James Plotkin, cut direct to metal and pressed on 200 gram virgin vinyl. This release features photographs from the site and text by Sarah Last, founder of The WIRED Lab and Curator of Wired Open Day 2009." -Taiga.

The 100 drawings gathered in Dripping Junk were made over a period of five days during a recent trip to Miami FL. Lambkins eye and pen guide us through a confusion of local observation. We find ourselves transported to the opulent sands of South Beach, the strip malls of Dade County, and the many tourists spots one would expect to engage. Yet Lambkin allows us to view these sites through his own distorted lens. This is not the Miami of common expectation. Lambkin throws us headfirst in to a hallucinogenic netherworld where logic and common sense cower in the shade of the palms. A world where fantasy and reality mix effortlessly and are drank as the cocktail of choice. A world where the skunk ape is king.

Slowed down voice, water sounds, a little bit of radio, and some odd hisses and hums all combine for a very linear and yet insane listening experience. The sound soon becomes a strange syrup that surrounds the listener in its devilishly well-crafted coccoon. The editing is very subtle, but very rewarding to the patient listener. And: (1) this is one of the top records to listen to with that last drink at 5 or 6 AM (it works!); and (2) this can easily sort out the contenders from the pretenders at any social gathering.

"Graham Lambkin and Jason Lescalleet stand side by side in the vanguard of contemporary sound exploration. Since the initiation of their collaborative endeavors in 2006, the duo have crafted a nice combination of audio vérité and musique concrète, together building a highly personal body of work. 2008s critically acclaimed The Breadwinner illuminated the artistic potential found in mundane and commonplace circumstances. 2010s Air Supplyshowcased a darker side, nudging the civilian themes of its predecessor into fields of pure abstraction.Photographs brings Lambkin and Lescalleet back again to the questions of self and place. Photographspresents a monolithic reappraisal of heritage, both individual and shared, and reevaluates the geographic and societal influence inherent in formative memory. Recorded in Folkestone, England and Worcester, Massachusetts, Photographs invites the listener to journey through Lambkin and Lescalleets historical registry, places of birth, childhood haunts, locations of enlightenment and kingdoms of despair. Photographswelcomes the listener into the houses and homes of Lambkin and Lescalleets upbringing. Its a meet and greet with family and friends, a traipse through ever-changing street scenes, and a document of a fading static past. But Photographs is not just a memorial to a time long since spent. Lambkin and Lescalleet take you there and back in celebration of their ancestry, breathing new life into each chapter and event. As a survey of origin and a major artistic statement,Photographs proves itself to be a worthwhile investment, and one that brings Lambkin and Lescalleets collaboration full circle. The beginning now knows its end, the final part has fallen into place, a plan has worked well and everything is perfect. Housed in a deluxe UV-varnished 12-panel fold-out digipak, boasting copious site-specific pictorial data,Photographs sets the new gold standard for CD design presentation, and provides the music with lavish adornment.

Title: The Breadwinner
Format: CD
Label: Erstwhile
Country: USA
Price: $13.50
"Graham Lambkin and Jason Lescalleet are both highly respected artists, with small but intensely hardcore followings. Since 2001, theyve been gradually moving closer towards realizing a collaborative project, and The Breadwinner is the results of two years of recording, reworking and polishing. Lambkin first entered the public consciousness at 19 when he formed his band The Shadow Ring, in Folkestone, a small town in Kent, England. The band was memorable and built an rabidly passionate fan base because of its sui generis approach, blending elements of folk, noise, cracked electronics, and surrealist poetry, while radically changing the overall formula with each release. A decade of increasingly skewed and inspired work culminated in 2003s Im Some Songs, constructed long distance as Lambkin had relocated to the US in 1998. Over the last few years, Lambkin has primarily worked under his own name, most notably with 2007s brilliant Salmon Run, a precursor to The Breadwinner. Lescalleet has gradually and painstakingly built a compelling discography over the past decade. He uses reel-to-reel tape decks to explore the textures of low fidelity analog sounds and the natural phenomena of old tape and obsolete technology. He is one of a growing list of master producer/musicians, whose skill lies as much in reworking, assembling and mastering the material available as in creating it (or helping create it) in the first place. He has worked with such wide-ranging artists as Ron Lessard, Joe Colley and Phill Niblock, and has released a string of superb solo discs in Mattresslessness (Cut), Electronic Music (RRR) and The Pilgrim (Glistening Examples). This is his second release for Erstwhile, after 2001s Forlorn Green (w/Greg Kelley), and his third is already in preparation, a duo with Bhob Rainey, planned for release in early 2009. The material for The Breadwinner was recorded at Lambkins house in upstate NY, over two recording sessions. The duo treated the entire building and its surrounding grounds as a studio, welcoming in outside sounds, which were later kept or eliminated as they felt appropriate. The subtitle on the front cover is ⿿musical settings for common environments and domestic situations⿝, layering numerous submerged fragments to find beauty in everyday life." -Erstwhile

"Reissue of this little known classic from founding Philip Glass Ensemble member Richard Dickie Landry. Following two jazz LPs issued on the Chatham Square label (which he co-ran), Dickie Landry released Fifteen Saxophones, a set of 1974 recordings done with engineer Kurt Munkacsi, on the Northern Lights and Wergo labels in 1978. Fifteen Saxophones simultaneously demonstrates Landrys boundary-pushing saxophone and his understanding of the minimalists long-form treatises on sound. Using intricate Revox tape delays on Fifteen Saxophones, Alto Flute Quad Delay, and the side-long live document Kitchen Solos, Landrys strong personality as a player shines through a brilliant wall of sound. It is unsurprising Landry was a fixture in the same New York scene that spawned artists like Richard Serra - something equally monumental exists in the pieces found on this album.

Fans of MV & EEs cottage label Child of Microtones will remember Mr. Lanes "Recliner Ragas" disc of several years ago, documenting a legendary session from early 2003 that MV engineered and produced at his home in Guilford. "Known Quantity" finds Lane sequestered in Philadelphia apartments with a tape machine, coaxing ragas and abstract blues from acoustic guitars as well as walking the plank of a pedalboard with his dangerously heavy Les Paul copy. The recordings date from 2006 to 2008 - a span of time that encompassed a considerable range of shifting moods and approaches in Lanes playing, in addition to yielding ample refreshment breaks. edition of 350 numbered copies with printed labels & a not-so-shabby 11"x17" folkways-style paste-on." -Cord-Art

"Vinyl edition of Lanes first recordings, originally released in 2006 on Child of Microtones. An unbelievably potent and unique brew, this record is one of the finest specimens of modern day guitar soli. Recliner Ragas is, as the liner notes so aptly put it, the fruits of a winter spent exploring the possibilities of nature/total sound as religion, independent study, low wage exploitative manual labor and general isolation while cultivating giant modal blues ragas in his one room studio flophouse. The vibe here is just dripping with this sense of deeply personal inquiry, a man-guitar-cosmos triad wherein all are one Utilizing intricate, yet simple, environmental refraction to create a tactile sense of space, Willie plays rings around yr skull, completely circumventing rational cortices in favor of direct mainline transmission. The effect on the listener is spellbinding, truly psychedelic in a way few modern records can touch. Indeed, this one can easily be filed alongside any classic higher-minded string sounds, from Fahey or Bull to Popol Vuh or Heldon, without any sense of retread or nostalgia. Effortless runs and flows, this is timeless music, universal in nature. In another time, Willie would be a lauded court musician; in 21st century America, he works in a library, and employs a deft wit to navigate the cruder aspects of earthbound life, while continuing to charm his scrabbly blues muse in recent recordings on his Cord-Art imprint. And while his recent records have seen him drawing out more layered arrangements and varied tones, Recliner Ragas displays a singular vision, the kind of window into a private universe we dig here at Humito." - Humito.

If Captain Beefhearts Trout Mask Replica (1969) is a milestone of avant-rock, than Differenz/Wiederholung 2 is the same for contemporary music.

Title: TablesAreTurned
Format: Double LP
Label: God
Country: Austria
Price: $27.00
“2011 release. TablesAreTurned is a project by Bernhard Lang and Alter Ego with Philip Jeck for turntables and amplified ensemble, based on the song by Amon Düül 2. TablesAreTurned is the first collaboration between one of the most significant Austrian composers of today, Bernhard Lang and prominent English turntablist Philip Jeck. There is no doubt that mutual interested in loop technique, led to the musical collaboration, connecting the worlds of academic philosophy with underground aesthetic. Unlike his previous works, where Lang was able to transform an ensemble into a big loop generator (his series of "Differenz / Wiederholung" pieces, accomplished with magnum opus opera, monumental Das Theater der Wiederholungen), here he turns the ensemble into cellular automata, generating counterpoint based on the rest of the loops. On the other side, Jeck offers a dozen of lo-fi locked grooves, making the perfect extended interludes between powerful ensemble episodes. Premiered at Berlinerfestspiele, but also performed at Wien Modern and Huddersfield Contamporary Music Festival, the piece is now available for the first time as a limited double LP. Bernhard Lang - composition; Philip Jeck - turntables; Alter Ego: Manuel Zurria - flutes; Paolo Ravaglia - clarinets; Aldo Campagniari - violin; Francesco Dillon - violoncello; Oscar Pizzo - keyboards; Eugenio Vatta - sound projection.” - God.

Price: $25.00
"BRUCE LANGHORNE, one of the most in-demand session guitarists of the 60s, is probably best known for playing on several of Bob Dylans best records, including Bringing It All Back Home and Blonde on Blonde. He actually played with just about everybody in the late 60s folk-rock universe-Fred Neil, Joan Baez, Tom Rush, John Sebastian, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Odetta, Richie Havens and others. Langhorne performed live with Dylan at Newport, produced records for Ramblin Jack Elliott and was the real-life inspiration for "Mr. Tamborine Man." His crowning achievement however may be the soundtrack he composed for Peter Fondas directorial debut, The Hired Hand. Surprisingly, for such a seasoned veteran of the booming folk scene, this was Langhornes first solo record. Recorded in the garage of his Laurel Canyon home in 1969 using an Echoplex and a two-track Revox tape machine, the album features an assortment of period instruments from the old west-fiddle, dulcimer, recorder, banjo, upright piano, harmonica and Langhornes National steel string guitar. The spacey, hypnotizing score was a perfect match for Fondas atmospheric western and along with Vilmos Zigmonds stunning cinematography and some top-notch performances from Warren Oates, Verna Bloom and poet Michael McClure, heavily contributed to the films underground success. The movie was part of Universals "semi-independent series in which the studio, hoping to score the next Easy Rider, turned five young filmmakers loose equipped with small budgets and complete artistic control. Sadly, The Hired Hand didnt go over so well with mainstream audiences (although American Graffiti, another Universal "semi-independent" feature, certainly did). Nevertheless, both the film and Langhornes score have lived on as cult classics. Pressed on 180-gram vinyl in an edition of 1,000 copies." - Scissor Tail Editions.

"Spectrum Spools announces the release of Eric Lanhams The Sincere Interruption, his first long-playing record under his own name after performing for years under various solo guises such Carl Calm and Palmetto Moon Electronic Group and as one-half of the Caboladies equation. Commissioned back in the summer of 2011, it was finally recorded in March 2012 and its been well worth the wait. Lanham has crafted a very special set of improvised electronic compositions which rise above many of the contemporaries of his ilk. With an eye on both the origins of electronic music as well as the not-so-distant past, The Sincere Interruption was recorded in superb fidelity with great attention to sound placement and frequency variations. Elements of late 90s-early 00s Mille Plateaux/Warp-styled disjointed rhythms are bent into surgically precise and meticulously pieced concrète/electronic form, crammed with information-overload situations and infinite variables to ones listening perception. Its a challenge to hear the album the same way twice with the sheer amount of action and peculiarity happening over the duration. While there are, indeed, busy moments throughout, tracks like "21:00" and "No Ordinates" display an attention to control and deep focus, relying on an idea which develops and evolves seamlessly in subtle variation while retaining a repetitive nature. An outstanding effort and a great addition to the ever-evolving Spectrum Spools catalog. Complete with an outstanding master and cut by CGB and Dubplates and Mastering." -Spectrum Spools.

But thats enough time for the band to showcase the adventurous spirit of Gilbert & Co.

Price: $29.00
"The third and last Lard Free LP is released in 1977 on the Cobra label recorded in two different studios between January and March that same year. Besides some new musicians, another step forward in Artmans constant evolution is the use of the recording studio as an additional instrument that offers a whole lot of possibilities to creative expansion. The results are amazing : under an apparently lineal structure theres thousands of sound brushtrokes that feed themselves back to create a strange and provocative post-industrial picture. Gilbert Artman (orgue, piano, arp synthesizer, vibraphone, drums premier), Xavier Baulleret (guitares), Yves Lanes (synthy-ems), Jean-Pierre Thiraut (clarinette).

There is a totally different line-up from that of the first LP and it features long time friend Richard Pinhas, with whom Artman explores (in his own way) some sound passages of strong Heldon inspiration, although in a less immediate register, building an organic layered sound that emanates a certain shadowy formal beauty. The strong Artman-Pinhas connection is also confirmed by the inclusion on Heldons Third of the track Pale violence under a reverbere, on a different mix and different title, Méchamment rock.

Title: Instruments Non-Électronique
Format: LP
Label: Cacophonic
Country: UK
Price: $26.00
“Cacophonic presents Instruments Non-Électronique, a collection of the earliest recordings by the French sound sculpture musicians known as Structures Sonores Lasry-Baschet. These recordings feature the first fruits of the collaboration between the beguiling and haunting sounds of Jacques and Yvonne Lasry and the musical inventions of Bernard and François Baschet. The Baschet brothers instruments incorporated metal bars, steel rods, balloons, crystal stems, and were totally independent of electronic components or equipment, sidestepping the celebrated trends in tape manipulation and musique concrète. The instruments were played using horsehair bows and wet glass rods, which caused the tubes and metal surfaces to resonate, the amplification was produced by the movement of vibrating rods embedded in fixed plates, and the timbre could be modified by altering the sizes of the resonators. By the early 50s, the brothers had invented a series of large, visually striking sculpture-like instruments that could be used by anyone, regardless of any formal musical training. These instruments combined crystal, water, and steel to create a unique, delicate, and haunting sound. A chance meeting in 1954 with Jacques and Yvonne Lasry, two enthusiastic piano-based musicians, led to the formation of the Structures Sonores Lasry-Baschet ensemble. This collection of early recordings includes tracks from a 1957 single on Ducretet Thomson credited to Jacques Lasry/François Baschet and titled Lorgue de Cristal et les Percussions, and presented with a pop-political, almost anti-musique concrète disclaimer, "Instruments Non-Électroniques." The collection also features two notable ballet pieces from 1959: "Jeux dOmbres" and "Ballet du Soho," as well as the rare soundtrack to J. Willemetzs film LAtomium, made for the 1958 Brussels Worlds Fair. Many of these inclusions also feature performances from the groups regular collaborators, such as clarinetist Roger Simon (Music de Wolfe, Chappell), vocalist Lucie Rapp, and composers and percussionists Daniel Ouzounoff and Jacques Chollet. Also included in this compilation are tracks from 1962s Mister Blues, featuring the first recordings of Jacques Lasrys son, Teddy Lasry, who, at age 15, joined the group as its clarinet player, and would go on to contribute to Magmas signature cosmic military brass arrangements. This compilation presents Structures Sonores Lasry-Baschet in its very earliest vinyl appearances, a window into the origins of one of the greatest unions in experimental French music.” - Cacophonic.

Format: LP + 7"
Label: Dark Entries
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"LASSIGUE BENDTHAUS is the electro-industrial project of UWE SCHMIDT aka ATOM(TM) or SENOR COCONUT from Germany. Uwe Schmidt began making music in the early 1980s, first playing drums, then switching to programming a drum computer after he had heard a Linn Drum on the radio. In 1986 he co-founded the cassette label N.G. Medien, on which his first musical work under the name LASSIGUE BENDTHAUS, "The Engineers Love", was released. Soon after, he started to work on what would become his first official record release, the album Matter. The recordings and production began in 1986 and took almost 4 years, until the album finally came out in 1991 on the German Parade Amoureuse label. Musically somewhere between late "Industrial" and "Electronic Body Music", yet already anticipating "Acid" and "Techno", this production managed to cause quite a stir, due to its advanced production techniques. Songs pay strong homage to Kraftwerk, approaching the early industrial dance scene with a softer sequential approach than most of his contemporaries. Matter is a hermetic reflection about the relationship between perception, nature, science, technology and labor. This reissue comprises the entire 1991 Matter LP, as well a bonus 7" record containing 2 tracks never before released on vinyl. All songs on Matter were recorded and mixed by TOBIAS FREUND (Pink Elln). All songs have been remastered for vinyl by GEORGE HORN at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The vinyl is housed in a jacket featuring the photographic traces of a high-energy photon hitting a proton. Each LP includes a 2-sided insert with original album reviews, press clippings, liner notes by Atom(TM) and photos." - Dark Entries.

Country: USA
Price: $25.00
“All-star quartet Last Exit garnered its reputation with a string of unrelentingly forceful concert recordings in which it pushed the energy style of free jazz to its limits. When the group went into the studio, though, a very different sort of album emerged -- very different not only from all their other output, but even from anything else ever heard from anyone at that time. Because of that, when it was released in 1988, some fans and critics didnt know what to make of it. This was, in a way, understandable, because Iron Path was so far ahead of its time that perhaps only a quarter of a century later, in 2015, is there an audience prepared for this albums pioneering hybrid of abstract heavy metal, unsettling ambient music, and free improvisation. Back in 1988, "darkwave" hadnt yet been conceived, much less named and niched. The brutal sonic assault of Last Exits live albums is not banished; it lurks below the surface on Iron Path, sometimes allowed to break through for a moment of stark contrast. But the unremitting density of texture heard in the quartets shows is stripped back in favor of more subtle and varied textures, sculpting an atmosphere of moody brooding and sinister suspense. And, of course, the studio also allowed for far greater sonic clarity, putting these virtuoso players in a setting that shows off their masterful command of myriad timbres. In a world that has since become accustomed to hearing Earth, Pelican, Blut Aus Nord, Aphex Twins Ambient Works sets, and Oöphoi, and artists such as Whote who explore the overlap between them, Iron Path can finally get its due, and an audience schooled to appreciate what it offers.

"Hem. Någonstans is the fourth album by Lau Nau. This time she takes us to the fleeting borderline between contemporary classical and experimental music, true to her idiosyncratic style. The electroacoustic orchestrations pilot the listener through an archipelago of cloud constellations to rest on massive pillows of sound. Pekko Käppi, the emperor of the jouhikko (a traditional Finnish string instrument), plays all of the string arrangements on Hem. Någonstans. The album is an instrumental soundtrack to Lotta Petronellas 2015 documentary HOME. Somewhere, a boldly poetic film that takes place on the most remote islands of Finland, asking the question, "Will the human soul ever find a home?" Lau Naus music adds its soul to the film and acts as its fourth character, alongside the three main subjects. Laura Naukkarinen aka Lau Nau (born 1980) is one of the more interesting names in the Finnish music scene. She composes, records, and produces her music mainly by herself. Her first solo albums were released in the US by Locust Music (Kuutarha (2004) and Nukkuu (2008)), and she has been touring the world ever since. Lau Nau began composing film music by accompanying silent films and contemporary dance and theater. Her original score for Jan Forsströms 2013 film Silmäterä (The Princess of Egypt) was nominated for a Jussi Award for Best Music, and her 2012 album Valohiukkanen (FR 088CD/LP) was nominated for the Teosto Prize, one of the most prestigious art prizes in the Nordic countries. At the time of this release, Lau Nau tours and plays concerts in a family-friendly tempo and accompanies silent films while working on her next album and preparing compositions for theater." - Fonal.

Although its safe to say the mood is still firmly rooted in the shadowy side of life, we are occasionally taken to a disco -- yet that, too, sounds as if it may have been organized by Death. Tonally and texturally rich and immersive, the new record includes contributions from Pekko Käppi on jouhikko, Jaakko Tolvi on drums, Antti Tolvi on bass and alto clarinet, Kristian Holmgren on guitar, synths and percussion and Matti Bye on grand piano and celesta. The cover photographs were taken by renowned Finnish photographer Susanna Majuri, as part of her "Imaginary Homeland" series. Lau Nau is the musical alias and persona of Laura Naukkarinen. Her debut album, Kuutarha, won acclaim from the likes of Pitchfork and Dusted, with The Wire naming the LP amongst their top 50 albums of 2005, and citing her Philadelphia show of that year amongst "60 concerts that shook the world." Valohiukkanen continues the path laid down by her previous records, but if her psych-folk roots are still visible then the branches are further reaching, the music imbued with a timeless, cinematic breadth of vision. Retaining her penchant for a fragile, spectral other-ness, these 10 interrelated snapshots draw the listener towards Naukkarinens idiosyncratic, finely-honed sound-world, unconsciously paralleling other luminaries such as Smog, Sigur Rós, or Linda Perhacs with her singular sense of purpose." - Fonal.

Inspired by early 1980s synth pop, these home recordings are some of the most young at heart, sincere, and amazing synth pop the world has never heard. Due to lack of publicity/etc, these recordings sadly have been stored away until recently as a cult following mounted after the attention and correspondence with Crispy Nuggets blog.

Country: Germany
Price: $93.00
"2013 release. The members of seminal Melbourne-based improvising experimental group Laughing Hands and its alter ego The Invisible College were Paul Schütze, Gordon Harvey, Ian Russell, and Paul Widdicombe. Their spectrally shaded instrumental post-punk-by-way-of-post-industrial constructs were effectively post-rock before the genre existed. The group continued in several permutations until disbanding in 1982. They released two LPs (Ledge (1980) and Dog Photos (1981)) and one cassette (E E: (The Welders Bible) (1981)) on their own Adhesive label, as well as two cassettes on the Australian tape label Rash (Decisions) (Nights (1982) and The Luxery of Horns (1982, credited to The Invisible College)). This set includes the contents of all three cassettes, as well as a DVD. While the esoteric Eno-by-way-of-Dome post-punk instrumental constructs doled out across their two LPs are some of the most mesmerizing examples of this sort, their work on the tape-only releases finds them exploring a decidedly more shrouded, nocturnal, and formally abstract dimension of their universe. The two tapes issued under their heading as well as the material they issued under the pseudonym The Invisible College tease out certain territories only hinted at on the vinyl releases. Nights comprises two side-long pieces. Side As mesmerizing title-track is filled with spectral synth shadings, distant metallic clatter, and pained wails, while the B-sides "Infinite Summer" unfurls a protracted stream of stutter pulse across a vast terrain of preternatural and phantasmagoric incident. The material on E E, divided into subsections titled Vibrate, Scatter, Picture, and Splinter, spans the gap between Nights atmospheric abstractions and The Invisible Colleges more forcefully driving and art rock-ish confections, each section highlighting a facet of their cumulative praxis. Vibrate foregrounds the rhythmically forceful dimension of their aesthetic as heard on the Invisible College material, Scatter proposes a more fractured and hermetic attack that carries a whiff of Cans ethnological forgeries, Splinter explores the more nocturnal and mechanistic side of their nature, and Picture sets its sights on the cosmos with pore-penetrating widescreen tracts of alternately shearing and suspended krautrock-ish acid sound-scaping that is perhaps the epiphanic peak of their whole discography." - Vinyl-on-Demand.

"Peter Laughner (August 22, 1952 �?? June 22, 1977) was an American guitarist, songwriter and singer. A native of Cleveland, Ohio, Laughner remains a rather little known figure; nonetheless, Richie Unterberger described him as "probably the single biggest catalyst in the birth of Clevelands alternative rock scene in the mid-70s." He led a variety of groups (including Mr. Charlie, Cinderella Backstreet, Peter & The Wolves, The Blue Drivers and Friction) but his most enduring contributions were to Rocket From The Tombs and the early work of Pere Ubu. In addition to all this, he wrote for Creem magazine. Laughner was a voracious rock fan and writer, and was heavily influenced by Lester Bangss writings. Like Bangs, Laughner worshipped Lou Reed, but also drew inspiration from folk and blues figures such as Robert Johnson and Woody Guthrie. He was a unique, visceral lead guitarist, influenced by Richard Thompson, and was briefly considered as a replacement for Richard Lloyd in Television , a band whom he championed from their earliest days. Laughner had severe drug and alcohol abuse problems that led to his death by acute pancreatitis in 1977 at the age of 24. Rumors to the effect that Laughner was despondent, even suicidal, at the time of his death have been contradicted by Laughners last known message, written and mailed to Cleveland singer Ruby Port on the evening prior to his death. This letter revealed his intent to move to a retreat in the Ohio countryside, where he could write new music as well as rest and regain his health. Bangs wrote a eulogy for him. Laughners only known entrance into a recording studio was for the Pere Ubu single sessions, though he left behind countless lo-fi live, rehearsal, and demo recordings. In 1994, Tim/Kerr label released Take the Guitar Player for a Ride, a 15 track compilation drawn from these tapes. This compilation has since gone out of print." - Wikipedia.

"70s rock meets mainstream British pop in an explosive style fusion of pre-punk, glam, psychedelic and gay themed musical gems by controversial British rocker LAURICE. Recorded in the early to mid-70s at various studios in London, UK, these tracks, many previously unreleased, demonstrate the versatility and originality of a singer-songwriter who challenged societys rules. British rock was always LAURICEs roots. From the pre-punk underground classic hits When Christine Comes Around/I?m Gonna Smash Your Face In to the heavily impassioned openly gay anthem He?s My Guy and the highly sexualized gay lyrics of Wild Sugar, to the S&M master-slave darkside of Born To Serve, LAURICE constantly challenged himself and his musical peers to explore out of the mainstream music box. His influences ranged from Lou Reed and Cream, to the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and various 70s British pop bands. Take a listen to this treasure trove of incredible tracks. LAURICE was a star, far ahead of his time, and suffered mightily for fighting the conventions of the day." - Mighty Mouth Music.

Title: Transform EP
Format: 12"
Label: Wilde Calm
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
“Wilde Calm Records is honored to present new work from the late Elodie Lauten, New York City composer and recipient of the 2014 Robert Rauschenberg Award. Lauten had been exploring microtonality and alternative temperament since working on a Fairlight CMI synthesizer in the early 1980s and up until her untimely death, had been continuing these explorations with the Klio, her custom modular Reaktor software synthesizer.

Many Wilde Calm fans will be familiar with Lautens music from her numerous collaborations with fellow downtown luminary Arthur Russell. Lauten and Russell met through their mutual poet friend Allen Ginsberg and shared a similar sensibility of musical openness and possibility as evident in their spiritual club classic “In the Light of the Miracle” and Russells appearance on Lautens seminal post- minimalist masterwork The Death of Don Juan.

Five remastered selections from her most recent album Transformfeature on the EP in addition to a Wilde Calm remix. For fans of Laurie Spiegel and Suzanne Ciani, Lautens synth explorations are essential.

Edition of 100 copies printed on deluxe Stumptown White/Kraft Duplex jackets from Portlands Stumptown Printers. These jackets are really beautiful with a slight texture, off-white color, and kraft interior. Hand-numbered silk-screened jackets with a full-color insert." - Wilde Calm.

Country: USA
Price: $28.00
2017 repress. "Heavy Air is a 30 song puzzle / map masterminded by Chris Gunn (The Hunches, Hospitals). Recorded on analog tape machines over a period of years and outside of the genre concentration camps. A home recording project approached completely open to experimentation but in love with songs. Like Terrence Malicks Tree Of Life remade by the ghost of Phillip K. Dick; projecting sounds as images inside your head. Its extremely psychedelic and dense with layers and layers yielding new secrets with each listen. Songs / melodies / lyrics appear and reappear as half remembered dreams or reconstructed memories. Its a circuitous path through pop songs (My Time, Those That Bend - with a Waterloo Sunset vibe), blasted rockers (Fingers Like Wounds), beautiful instrumentals (Feel The Ground, Telepathic Axe), fractured folk (Between The Trees), weirder experimental songs (Vacuum Creature, La-Bas), straight up fried epics (Transcendental Hangover) plus a few covers in the mix including a maximal / minimal take on The Godz mantra-like ode to sun worship and a Townes Van Zandt tune that is derailed by a massive panic attack. Traces of Big Star, Royal Trux, Brian Eno, Meat Puppets II, American Beauty are in the DNA but The Lavender Flu is its own beast. While it is obviously insane to release a double album debut in the current no-attention-span era, it is the only way. Put in the time, you will be rewarded. This is one of those rare double albums that isnt overripe or padded with mediocrity. All killer, no filler! Super dynamic pressing! Completely insane on headphones!" - Meds.

Price: $16.00
“Lawalrée has spent his whole life in Belgium. He studied at the Institut Supérieur de Musique et de Pédagogie in Namur, and has composed over 450 works spread across 20 albums. First Meeting comprises music he put out on his own Editions Walrus imprint between 1978 and 1982 on three LPs, Brins DHerbes, Vis a Vis and Clandestin.
In the liner notes, he speaks on his musical interests during this period saying, "I was listening all kinds of music! The Beatles, Brian Eno… I love all of the composers of the classical avant-garde: Erik Satie, John Cage, Stockhausen, Morton Feldman, Pierre Boulez... and the city of Brussels."
Eno considered releasing Lawalrées music on his Obscure Records before it folded, but Lawalrées reach in the US was limited to titles distributed by the English composer Gavin Bryars. The influence of Satie and Eno are evident in Lawalrées song titles—"Musique Satieerique" and "Listen TO The Quiet Voice," which takes its name from an Oblique Strategies prompt.
Lawalrée now spends his time playing piano and organ in church on a weekly basis, his musical focus having turned for the liturgical over the past two decades.” - Matt McDermott. “Dominique Lawalrée (b. 1954) is a composer born and based in Brussels. First Meeting is Lawalrées first archival release to date. Culled from four different albums originally self-published on his private label Editions Walrus, circa 1978-1982, this compilation highlights the composers unique sense of ambient and minimal composition. Originally considered for release on Brian Enos Obscure Records, Lawalrées music is now no longer hidden.

In this collection, the listener finds the sounds of piano, synthesizers, percussion, wurlitzer, organ, and voice, all performed by Lawalrée. Using these tools Dominique creates miniature themes that gallop across the speakers in slow motion, stretching our normal sense of dynamics and color, effortlessly widening the stereo plane. On “Musique Satieerique,” Dominique pays homage to the influence of Satie with simple repeated piano figures and a lush field of organs and flutes. And on other selections, like “Le Maison Des 5 Elements,” he takes a more wistful, ambient approach, layering keyboard lines, and invoking found/tape sounds to create a hypnogogic world of his own. Childlike in its playfulness and surreal to the bone, the music spins like a carrousel placed inside the Rothko Chapel. Lawalrée’s sense of timbre, tone, and overarching composition is like an impression of a home movie whose charm lies in its knowledge of intimacy, shared by few. An incantation of innocence.” - Ergot/Catch Wave Ltd.

Title: The Trickster
Format: LP
Label: St. Ives
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"St. Ives has long been in love with the songs of Trevor Montgomery. Performing as Lazarus, Montgomerys nascent body of work began (after he left new kosmiche group Tarentel) in 2001 with the glorious Songs For An Unborn Sun (Temporary Residence Ltd.). Since then, two additional full-lengths have been released, further illuminating Montgomerys beguiling voice as both singer, arranger and lyricist and having earned him many comparisons to classic heavy bellowers such as Nick Cave and Leonard Cohen. After being commissioned by St. Ives to do a record, he decided to gather some songs together influenced by and referencing his teenage years. According to Montgomery: At the time I was polarized by meth, riding trains, heavy psychedelics, and a love of spending my time in the mountains walking around in the woods. At 14, I tried to sell my soul for the ability to draw the female form in perfection, I skirted death several times, always seeming to be saved at the last minute by some good soul or random occurrence. All and all leading me to believe that the coyotes and crows of the canyons were watching out for me. The Trickster in many forms, laughing and crying. Recorded wherever he could find space, but mostly in a photography studio in Old Town Orange, California owned by his brother. All songs were written, performed and recorded by Lazarus (William Trevor Montgomery). As with all St. Ives records, The Trickster is available in limited edition (300 copies), each with unique hand-made art, done by the artist. Brown-colored vinyl." -St. Ives

Format: 7"
Label: Kernkrach
Country: Germany
Price: $13.00
"The translucent red record opens with "Le Malade Roi." As soon as the needle touches this 7" sublime synthlines are offered from the speakers. Vocals are contributed by Xavier Paradis, vocals that blend seamlessly with the crisp beats and a solid tempo to produce a track that would warm any club floor. "Le Malade Roi" is a piece that captures the addictive analog sound of quality New Wave, blending some heartbreak lyrics with some pure electro sound. Synthesizers flow onto the flipside with "Elan." A clean and warm drumulator style backing props up some amazing analogue work before vocal slide in. Once more, that addictive and magnetic aspect is there as choice melodies are combined with deep lyrics. The track comes to a close with a fantastic, energy filled synthesizer solo; bringing this lovely New Wave snippet to a close. There can be only one complaint with Arnaud Lazlauds release, it is too short. Two tracks is a tease. These pieces are what New Wave was, and what it can still be; music that calls the listener back again and again. Two tracks are not enough, and more is needed. But, this is hardly an issue to gripe about. This is the height of recommendation and endorsement.... Hardy congratulations to artist and label are deserved, but such quality must be maintained and this can be easier said than done." - Igloo Magazine. Limited edition in "taped bandage" cover.

If that likeness was the whole story, we would have a Beatles sound-alike on our hands, and that would be that. Upon digging just a little deeper below the surface, we instead find a darker tone and a patient, eerie and almost shut-in feeling resonating through the songs. While bands like The Beatles and The Left Banke were singing about love, lament and hallucinated travel experiences, the songs on Corridor Of Faces get sincerely dark right away. Even the seemingly-light teenage love-themed Sarah Saturday shares an undercurrent of on-the-edge uncertainty and dread. Its this undercurrent that calls to mind comparisons to Forever Changes-era Love and the more damaged end of the pop spectrum.

Artist: LE CLICHE
Title: Consumer Behavior
Format: LP
Label: Medical
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"Medical Records presents the debut full-length release of Le Cliché, entitled Consumer Behavior. The album consists of 11 songs influenced largely by European synth pop of the late 1970s and early 1980s (The Human League, John Foxx, OMD, early Depeche Mode, Japan, Gary Numan, Propaganda, and Kraftwerk). More recent influences include the first album by Miss Kittin & the Hacker, Tiga, Benny Benassi, Erlend Øye, and Ladytron. The music might be best described as minimal synth, synth pop, postmodernist, cold assembly line with neo-consumerist themes, based on the use of synth sequences and virtual voices. The inspiration for the subject matter of the songs comes from the many inconsistencies and ironies of the current consumer- and consumption-centered society in which we live. Le Cliché is the synth project of Gerard Ryan, native of Limerick (Ireland), Associate Professor of Marketing and Consumer Behavior at the Rovira I Virgili University in Spain and a Visiting Fellow at Cornell University, New York. Le Cliché was initially established in 1984 when Ryan was a teenager, but later the project was put on hiatus in favor of a career in academia. Le Cliché was re-ignited in 2012, motivated by the appearance of new music from the 1980s that was being rediscovered and released by a host of relatively small but hugely motivated new record labels including Medical Records and the like (and groups such as Dark Day, Mathematiques Modernes, Bal Paré, Ceramic Hello, and Experimental Products). When, in 2012, the track Waiting on the Internet emerged as a reflection of Ryans doctoral research on the frustrations and anxieties experienced by consumers when interacting with computer technology in the use of the Internet, the Le Cliché project was revived. Since then the main source of inspiration has come from Ryans work as an academic, taking a critical view of the inconsistencies of the marketing centered approach to business and the all-pervasive reach of marketing activities in our daily lives as consumers (rather than citizens). All of the tracks on the album are from the 2012-2014 period except for I Woke Up This Morning (Like I Always Do), which is a reimagining of a 1984 demo of the track entitled I Dreamt I Was Dead. Two tracks on the album reflect on the everyday mundane, often drab, act of waiting in line, whether in situ, on the phone, or on the internet (Thank You For Holding and Waiting on the Internet). Production Line is the mostly instrumental opening track to the album, and it clearly displays its Kraftwerkian influences. Production Line reflects on the so-called sweatshops that produce many of our most beloved brands but often fail to adequately compensate workers for their labor or protect basic worker rights. It contemplates the fact that that most of these workers will never be able to afford the designer brands they churn out day after day in overcrowded factories and often-deplorable conditions. Other tracks deal with topics which are more personal and intimate such as aquaphobia and Ventolin, thus giving some indication of the personality behind the music. The album was written and recorded in Catalonia, Spain in 2012 and 13, and during the harsh winter of 2013 and 14 in frozen upstate New York, U.S.A. The Le Cliché sound is attained by combining a mix of old and new technologies. In this sense, both analogue and virtual instruments are employed thus obtaining a unique mix of old and new technologies. The LP is presented on high-quality 180-gram heavyweight colored white vinyl and features a bonus LP insert. Mastered by Martin Bowes at the Cage, UK." - Medical.

"The origins of Le Forte Four are those of the Los Angeles Free Music Society itself. Chip Chapman joined forces with Rick Potts (and shortly thereafter Tom and Joe Potts), taking up the LAFMS name in 1974. Ultimately baptizing themselves Le Forte Four, they began threading imagined lines between John Cage and The Residents, Cecil Taylor and Henry Cow -- generating sounds completely unlike any of these and anything since. The inaugural release on the eponymous LAFMS imprint with only 200 copies pressed originally, Bikini Tennis Shoes is a staggering piece of anti-music that remains as refreshingly ground-clearing today as it was when it first appeared in 1975. Its 40 minutes (parceled out across nearly as many tracks) chart forays into free improvisation, Buchla misuse, filtered noise, begrudging and damaged melodic sorties (from the Star-Spangled Banner to Stravinskys The Rite of Spring) and healthy doses of basement pablum. Le Forte Four emerged out of the lethargic American 70s as a locus where, in their own words, gamelans and ragas merged with serial and chance compositions finally melting together with instructional records and Beatles bootlegs. A wildly eclectic rummaging of postwar culture and 20th century sound, Le Forte Fours Bikini Tennis Shoes preempts punks outsider ethos and DIY autodidactism.

"Formed in 1967, the Quatuor de jazz libre du Québec (QJLQ) was a force to be reckoned with in post-Quiet Revolution Quebec. Between 1967 and 1970, the QJLQ shared the stage with artists such as Louise Forestier, Robert Charlebois and l’Infonie. It promoted improvised music as a means of bringing about real social and cultural changes in Quebec. In 1970, the QJLQ established a colonie artistique in Val-David. It also acquired land – the Petit Québec Libre – in an effort to offer artists and political activists a communal place to exchange ideas. From 1970 onward, Quebec’s first free jazz ensemble turned to contemporary avant-garde music for further inspiration. As the decade unfolded, the QJLQ became more radical both musically and politically. Tenzier’s new release constitutes a rare opportunity to hear the quartet at its most potent.

"If youve been following underground music of Seattle, you might have already heard music by CRAIG CHAMBERS before. If you havent, you will now. Chambers is the creative force behind LE SANG SONG, the name for what originated as a solo recording project for songs that for the most part are quieter than those of his other excellent bands (THE LIGHTS, LOVE TAN). Le Sang Songs basic framework is simple: get a good rhythm going, a rolling bass line or laconic guitar strum, paint the corners with more rhythms and harmonies. The result is the same kind of late night living room vibe that I get from listening to heavies like Syd Barrett or Skip Spence. While Chambers draws from folk styles, he pushes his songwriting and varies Le Sang Songs instrumentation to include violin, thumb piano, and other noise makers. Chambers is also an excellent lyricist, something uncommon these days, when vapidity is standard fare. The lyrics are carried by a keen sense of vocal melody. Recorded in 2007, the album sat neglected. Determined to give Le Sang Song the audience it deserves, I dusted off Dragnet Records and decided to put it out myself. Live performances of Le Sang Song are Chambers accompanied by his lovely wife ADRIA GARCIA on guitar/vocals, MATTHEW FORD (Love Tan, FACTUMS, YVES SON ACE) on drums/percussion, a yours truly, MIN YEE (A FRAMES, AFCGT) on bass/vocals."-Min Yee.

Theres a similar sense of subtly shaded space and poised atmosphere here, as Hasegawa threads wordless threnodies around the breathy lines of flute, and the strangely accented spaces created by Uchidas bass. Simultaneously fragile, melancholically beautiful and unsettling. File with your Taj Mahal Travellers, Nijiumu and Toho Sara records. Five tracks, 48 minutes.

"Mario Schifano was a leading Italian pop artist, and a friend of The Rolling Stones and other prominent 1960s countercultural figures. Inspired by Andy Warhols association with The Velvet Underground, in 1967 he decided to sponsor a band. The album that resulted combines a lengthy improvisation with five shorter, psychedelic-influenced tracks, and is a landmark in the development of Italian rock. Pressed in tiny quantities, it was released in November 1967 (with artwork designed by Schifano), and original copies have sold for thousands of Euros, making this long-awaited CD reissue especially welcome.

Title: Festin DAcier
Format: LP
Label: Rotorelief
Country: France
Price: $21.00
"Festin DAcier is perhaps the most "industrial" of Le Syndicats albums, even though Le Syndicat has always distanced itself from industrial music, striving instead to go further than music. Festin DAcier is designed for those who know and appreciate Le Syndicats rhythm albums. The title, which translates to "Steel Feast," is a deviation from Burroughss bestseller Naked Lunch (1959). To Le Syndicat, Burroughs was a visionary, describing a world that never ceased to transform itself, led by basic human characteristics: power, domination, submission, cupidity. For Le Syndicat, we bathe in this world. Everywhere, artists from all horizons tell of the worlds destruction. The steel feast is all that remains to eat during this apocalypse that we are living, the twilight of the fascist liberal world domination. Our old rusty tools, the dismantled leftovers of our glorious industries . . . Festin DAcier, an end to the worlds deeds, a dance of death -- but also a work in praise of strength, promoting rebellion. Theres blood, sweat, survival instincts, muscles in motion, truth down there. . . . Le Syndicat was founded by art students J.M. Onni aka Ruelgo and Van Minh L aka Zyklon in Paris in 1982. The first goal of this association was to make noise performances. A year later, the tape label Le Syndicat was created with help from Zorïn, painter, graphic designer, and visual scientist. Their fascination with chaos, strength, and violence was not motivated by provocation but by the sheer pleasure of manipulating noise material. This was the main difference between industrial music and Le Syndicats empiric bruitism. After releasing some intense noise albums in the mid-80s, Ruelgo, with new member Veïdt Mjölnïr, turned to more musical styles, experimenting with ambient loops, heavy rhythms, etc. Limited edition of 333.” - Rotorelief.

Title: Erring And Errant
Format: LP
Label: Dark Entries
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"LE TRAVO is the brainchild of PATRICK BOLLEN from Tienen, Belgium. As a teenager in the early 1980s, Patrick would visit "DeAtelier", the infamous coldwave/gothic club in Leuven. He would be inspired by Joy Division and other Factory releases, The Danse Society and Cocteau Twins. He gathered a some session musicians and a female backup vocalist. They recorded with live drums, TR-808 drum machine, Roland JX3P synthesizer, electric guitar and bass. Eventually Patrick bought a Greengate DE-3 sampler, using the brains of an Apple 2E with a keyboard bolted onto it. He crafted loops made from a deconstructed upright piano, hitting the strings directly with a drum stick. Le Travo made their first appearance on a split LP with Fred A in 1984. Erring and Errant is their debut 7 song LP originally released in 1985. For the reissue 3 bonus songs from the split LP have been added. The songs are coldwave in the vein of Weimar Gesang, Opera Multi Steel, and Clan of Xymox. Guitar, bass and sample interplay with piano and synthesizers with dark and forbidding crescendos in the fast numbers, and elegaic melancholy in the slow tracks. The vocals are delivered with a sense of urgency, while the lyrics are inspired by avant-garde movements such as futurism and constructivism, as well as science fiction and existentialism. All songs have been transferred from the original reel to reels and carefully remastered for vinyl by GEORGE HORN at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The vinyl comes housed in a glossy jacket with original artwork as well as a fold-out poster with lyrics and photos. Le Travo is derived from French word "les travaux", which means: the works, a fitting name for this compilation of lost music from the Belgian underground." - Dark Entries.

Title: Teenage Demos
Format: LP
Label: Dark Entries
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Dark Entries is celebrating its 50th release with LEAETHER STRIP Teenage Demos. Leaether Strip is the solo-project of Danish electronic industrial artist CLAUS LARSEN. Discovered by the German techno artist and producer Talla 2XLC, Leaether Strip quickly built a buzz as one of the most exciting emerging acts in Europe in the early 90s. Teenage Demos is a collection of Claus Larsens earliest recordings. Nine demo songs recorded between 1982 and 1986 never before released on vinyl. Influenced by Fad Gadget, Depeche Mode and Jean Michel Jarre, Claus began creating synth-pop melodies at age 14. Though the melodies were catchy and upbeat they had a hidden melancholy because Claus knew that he was different than others. "Dreaming" was his first attempt to "come out" to himself as a queer kid. Lyrically the songs reflected what was going on in his head: youth, hope and dreams. Claus used a simple set up: Moog Prodigy, Yamaha drum machine, delay pedal and spring reverb. He would record the bass and drums on a double cassette recorder, without midi, sequencers or preset sounds. By 1985, Claus composed instrumental songs as the final three tracks on this album illustrate. Each song has been carefully remastered from the original masters for vinyl by GEORGE HORN at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The vinyl comes housed in a glossy jacket with original photograph of a 15-year old Claus as well as an insert with lyrics, photos and an interview. Teenage Demos is a sneak peak into the world of early, emotionally intense foundations of Leaether Strip." -Dark Entries.

"This soundtrack for William Leavitts sculptural installation Warp Engines (2009) combines cello, played arco and pizzicato, with audio clips from sound effects libraries. As early as 1970, when he created a soundtrack for the installation Forest Sound, Leavitt had the desire to introduce the possibility of mood and atmosphere to the installation with the addition of sound. In the 1980s, he began making electronic music circuits, eventually completing his own analog synthesizer, and more recently hes been making cellos by hand.

Leavitt is an artist, playwright, and musician living in Los Angeles. His artwork was the subject of a recent retrospective titled Theater Objects at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, in 2011. He performs and records music for many of his installations and theater pieces, sometimes collaborating with musicians Joseph Hammer and Rick Potts. As a cellist he has played in several Los Angeles groups including Provisional Riviera, Solid Eye, and the Subtones." - Orion Read.

"Following up their excellent Wierd Records debut LP "Dust on Common" and a limited European split-12", Led Er Est return with a new 12" EP, the aptly named "May," their second release on C/T. The trio describe the record as a ".. collection of theme-based songs, almost like a dark sci fi film soundtrack..." The songs were written at various points some were written on the long drives over their last European tour. Side A opens with the dancefloor friendly "Lonsome XOXO", "a song about a girl obsessed with death" while "Plants" contains a cosmic disco bassline and use of 12-string guitar, showing their influences fall outside the narrow margins of electronic music. This is further evidenced by "Madi la Lune" a nod to British underground songwriter Bill Fay. Side B gets darker and heavier with the apocalyptic sci fi synth punk opener "Opto 5." This mood continues into "May" and ends with the instrumental brain melter "Drosophilia Melanogaster." "May" is available for digital and vinyl release and is a precursor to their forthcoming LP on the brilliant Sacred Bones label." - Captured Tracks.

"A native of Korea, cellist/composer Okkyung Lee has been developing her unique voice in both improvised and composed music by blending her wide interests and influences. Since moving to New York in 2000, she has worked with numerous artists ranging from Laurie Anderson, David Behrman, Douglas Gordon, Vijay Iyer, Christian Marclay, Jim ORourke, Evan Parker, and John Zorn, just to name a few, while leading her own projects and releasing more than 20 albums and touring extensively in the U.S. and Europe. Okkyung was a recipient of the Foundation for Contemporary Arts Grant in 2010. Ghil was recorded and produced by the Norwegian artist Lasse Marhaug. Instead of recording in what has become the standard in modern contemporary music, with high-end equipment and in controlled studio settings, Marhaug wanted to record Ghil in an expressionistic way -- to purposely use crude equipment and unorthodox microphone placement in order to give a more raw and direct depiction of Okkyung playing her music. Marhaug says if they were making a film, it would be like shooting on grainy 16mm black and white with close-ups instead of 35mm color cinemascope. Thus all of Ghil was recorded on a portable cassette recorder from 1976 that Marhaug had just bought second hand. The sessions for the album were done during the spring of 2012 in and around the Oslo area. The locations varied from places like Marhaugs studio; a back alley in Oslo center; a cabin in the forest on the Nesodden peninsula; and a former hydroelectric power plant in the mountains outside Rjukan. The recordings have been edited, but no overdubs or other post-manipulation other than mastering. Mastered by Marcus Schmickler at Piethopraxis, Köln, March 2013.

This power-trio shared their love for Sabbath/Heep/Rush and others of the genre, but also fusion rock like Mahavishnu Orchestra. Their imaginary revolved around epic fantasy, especially Viking mythology. Legend was a power trio, full of great musical ideas and concepts that unfortunately didnt had a place in a 1979 garbage filled music industry.

In the early 80s the whole concept of committing music to vinyl seemed like a noble but improbable dream. It was expensive and unless a label was offering, it was consigned to the experimental bands "bucket list". Cassette albums were another matter however. The Dots had chaotically joined the tape revolution with a couple of releases on their own Mirrordot label and after accidentally wiping one of the masters, decided it was something better left to "real" labels. Hence the band was delighted when Ian Dobson from Flowmotion approached them. Consequently Premonition was assembled; a combination of older and newer songs were placed in an extremely psychedelic collage with a rack of effects tuned and abused with the help of Pat Bermingham, who owned the In Phaze label and a small studio which used to belong to Pink Floyds Nick Mason. Sadly, Flowmotion ran into trouble after the release and it took a few years before the Dots actually saw a copy the original album." - Vinyl-On-Demand.

"It might be the weirdest piece of music ever committed to tape in Fort Worth. On Paralyzed, an explosion of madness recorded at Sound City Studios on Camp Bowie Boulevard in 1968, the Legendary Stardust Cowboy thrashes away at a single guitar chord over a rudimentary two-beat, tunelessly bellowing indecipherable lyrics and whooping like an Indian in an old western movie. In the middle of the song, theres a drum solo that sounds like someone dropping trash cans down a flight of stairs, followed by a blatting bugle. The pandemonium starts up again only to subside, like the end of an epileptic seizure. Hearing the song for the first time is disorienting, to say the least. Its impact is both hilarious and primal. Norman Carl Odam is an unlikely musical hero. Thats the name the Leges parents gave him when he was born, in Lubbock in 1947. But since high school, hes called himself the Legendary Stardust Cowboy. He has an extremely limited vocal range, has trouble singing in time, and can barely play his instruments. Yet, some surprising people like him. Chameleon-like British rocker David Bowie based his Ziggy Stardust character on the Lege after receiving a copy of Paralyzed from Mercury Records upon signing with the label in 1968." - EM.

"Ultra-limited (to 100 copies) reissue of Michel Legrands 1966 cult classic original soundtrack EP, with beautifully handmade and hand-folded original cover art -- a must-have! Includes two important, previously-unreleased-on-vinyl bonus tracks. A true time-capsule of the effulgence of the 60s, Qui êtes-vous, Polly Maggoo? (1966) is an arthouse movie spoofing the fashion world and its excesses. The movie developed cult status thanks to its gyrating scenario satirizing politics, fashion, the media, and more aspects of the mid-60s French society, and its detours into fantasy sequences and animated segments. In William Kleins movie, fashion often takes on a religious connotation, which is well underlined by Legrands superb soundtrack. Michel Legrand was behind the music of The Thomas Crown Affair (1968), Summer of 42 (1971), Yentl (1983), Never Say Never Again (1983 (Sean Connerys last Bond film)), and hundreds of other soundtracks, and has recorded with Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Charles Aznavour, James Ingram, Barbra Streisand, and Sarah Vaughan, to name a few." - We Release...

Title: I Abused Animal
Format: LP
Label: Ideologic Organ
Country: France
Price: $21.00
"I Abused Animal is Heather Leighs first solo album for Ideologic Organ, following solo albums on Kendra Steiner Editions, Golden Lab Records, Not Not Fun, Fag Tapes, Wish Image, Volcanic Tongues label, and more. Renowned as a fearless free improviser, Leigh showcases her songwriting prowess on I Abused Animal, foregrounding her stunning voice and her innovations for the pedal steel guitar. Warmly recorded in a secret location in the English countryside, the album transports the power of her captivating live performances to a studio setting, capturing her tactile playing in full clarity while making devastating use of volume and space. Leigh explores themes of abuse, sexual instinct, vulnerability, memory, shadow, fantasy, cruelty, and projection. I Abused Animal is a personal, idiosyncratic, and deeply psychedelic work, ranging from almost Kousokuya-scale black blues through the kind of ethereal electro-ritual of Solstice-era Coil. At times the intimacy of the recordings makes you feel like shes singing directly into your ear, playing just for you. Leigh has performed and released music since the 1990s as a solo artist and with a wide range of uncompromising collaborators including Peter Brötzmann and Jandek, and has toured extensively throughout the US, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. Her playing is as physical as it is phantom, combining spontaneous compositions with a feel for the full interaction of flesh with hallucinatory power sources. With a rare combination of sensitivity and strength, Leighs steel mainlines sanctified slide guitar and deforms it using hypnotic tone-implosions while juggling walls of bleeding amp-tone with choral-vocal-constructs and wrenching single-note ascensions. Shes played, performed, and released music with Ash Castles on the Ghost Coast, Charalambides, Scorces (a duo with Christina Carter), Dream/Aktion Unit (a group with Thurston Moore, Paul Flaherty, Chris Corsano, and Matt Heyner), Taurpis Tula, Jailbreak (a duo with Corsano), Termas (a duo with Lynda), Annihilating Light (a duo with Stefan Jaworzyn), Richard Youngs, Blood Stereo, MV & EE, Robbie Yeats of The Dead C, John Olson of Wolf Eyes, Smegma, Jutta Koether, Kommissar Hjuler & Mama Bär, and many others. I Abused Animal was composed and performed by Heather Leigh. Recorded and engineered by Joe Gubay in Surrey, October 2014. Cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering in Berlin, July 2015. Photographs by David Keenan. Spiritual adviser: Dean Roberts. Ideologic Organ curation and art direction by Stephen OMalley; manufactured and distributed by Editions Mego." - Ideologic Organ.

Title: Nightingale
Format: LP
Label: Golden Lab
Country: UK
Price: $27.00
"After an intense one-on-one dialogue with Heather Leigh regarding Golden Lab Records mission to present beautiful records that showcase styles of guitar in all their extremities, Golden Lab is delighted to deliver what is, without question, an absolutely blinding example of just such a record. Leigh recorded Nightingale direct to cassette, delivering one of those performances in which the pedal steel rages so hard that the vocals never have the opportunity to even make an appearance. Recorded in glorious mono and mastered to really bring out the harshness of those insane tones, Nightingale captures an almost tape-like quality in the pedal steel itself, and its transfer to vinyl only warms it up further into a new zone of somehow cozy metallicism. This is an absolute joy -- a real tear-yr-face-off record that sort of acts as a companion piece to Leighs 2014 performances with Stefan Jaworzyn as Annihilating Light. 140-gram vinyl presented in a black and silver matte sleeve and limited to 250 copies." - Golden Lab.

Title: A Period of Review
Format: Double LP
Label: Rvng International
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"“For the third installment in RVNG Intl.s archival series, the tape is wound back to 1970s Seattle, home place of ambient music savant K. Leimer. A Period of Review (Original Recordings: 1975 – 1983) unearths unreleased portions of Leimers vast archives and highlights the work of a self-taught visionary whose use of generative compositions ferried his music to infinite resonance.

Kerry Leimer was born in Winnipeg, Canada. He was raised in Chicago before his family permanently settled in Seattle in 1967. Kerrys teenage interests and artistic experiments blossomed from the seductively strange tendrils of Dadaism and Surrealism. In the early 70s, Leimer found musical parallels to these visual movements by studying backdaated copies of NME and Melody Maker and inquiring with local record store clerks about the exotic descriptions he read of Can, Neu! and Faust – innovators who were bringing the wild dictates of 60s art-discourse into music.

The tape-manipulated serenity Leimer experienced with Clusters II was a key revelation. Leimer realized the potential to compose with minimal training and scoured pawnshops for cheap instruments and recording equipment to transpose his wayward musical instincts. Leimers sound palette and composition soon refined and heightened with the accessibility of dynamic equipment such as the Micromoog and TEAC multi-track tape machines. Synchronously, the Terry Riley indebted loop-based compositions of Robert Fripp and Brian Enos No Pussyfooting inspired Leimer to form recursive musical passages of bare timbre and melody that would become hallmarks of his sound. “The loop provided an instant structure – a sort of fatalism,” recollects Leimer in A Period of Reviews liner notes. “The participation of the tape machine in shaping and extending the music was a key to setting self-deterministic systems in motion and held a clear relationship to my interests in fine art.”

The underground music scene of Seattle-Olympia in late 70s was small but seeded. The vestiges of prog rock pompously pummeled the few clubs and record shops before punk and New Wave became the rage. Leimer sought to support a growing community of experimental composers by launching the Palace of Lights record label in 1979 with his wife Dorothy Cross (this was years prior to the birth of regional titans K Records and Sub Pop). Palace of Lights took philosophical and logistical cues from the flourishing DIY cassette culture, but demonstrated a different elegance in its music and design. A testament to his independent and uncompromising spirit, all of Leimers recorded work would be released in varying formats and editions on Palace of Lights from 79 to 83.

Leimer rarely performed live, averting the litmus of instant appreciation for his solitary studio pursuits. Tellingly, the “K.” that abbreviated Leimers first name was a nod to Kafkas doomed pariah Josef K (from The Trial and The Castle). This gives a sense of the reclusive and literary realm Leimer was fond of working in. Despite his reticence, Leimers debut 1980 album Closed System Potentials would reach a receptive audience, and eventually sell more than 3,000 copies thanks in part to Crosss persistent advocation to independent distributors and magazines.

A Period of Review focuses on unheard material outside of the work Leimer offered on Palace of Lights, though even that music could be considered relatively “unheard.” The thirty tracks of A Period of Review may have remained a mystery on moldy reels until now, but Leimers entire catalog of generative music remains pristine in its absolute power.

The pieces of A Period of Review draw on many influences of the time, articulating gestures that embrace coolly composed stoicism, saturated fields of percolating beats, stark razed spaces and grave and gently developed glimpses of beauty. Overall, a genuine diversity of expression underscoring just how much range Leimer had at his disposal. A Period of Review is a rewarding step into the canopied, unheard world of K. Leimer and necessarily grand in scope. With its hypnotic, arcadian terraces and nearly narcotic glacial beauty, A Period of Review has a rightful place in the canon of pioneering ambient music."

Title: Closed System Potentials
Format: LP
Label: Palace of Lights
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Following the RVNG reissues of A Period Of Review (ranked the #7 reissue of 2014 by The Wire) and Artificial Dance (ranked the #2 reissue of 2015 by The Wire), Closed System Potentials, recorded in 1979 and originally released in 1980, finds its way back to vinyl in a completely remastered and expanded edition. The LP includes two previously unreleased tracks, and the download card includes an additional two unreleased tracks, all taken from the original Closed System Potentials sessions. In their review of A Period of Review, Pitchfork said, These pieces most closely evoke the work of Roedelius and Moebius in Cluster: meditative, wistful, lovely, giving off gentle glimmers of light. In trying to think if the closest American corollary for this set, the possibility emerges that Kerry Leimer is one of the lone examples of American kosmische music, that elegant hybrid that falls somewhere between the Velvets-style mesmerism of Can in the early 70s and the placid tones of new age music that arose in the next decade. Its a sound that applies to mid-70s Cluster, Ash Ra Tempel, Popul Vuh, the second side of Kraftwerks Autobahn, and others. K. Leimer founded the Palace of Lights label in 1979. Leimers early work was reissued by Autumn and RVNG in 2014 and 2015, and his early cassette work is in the critically acclaimed Vinyl On Demand box set American Cassette Culture. He has been actively producing music since the mid 1970s - his current catalog includes 16 still-in-print albums plus two collaborative albums with Marc Barreca." - Palace of Lights.

Title: Land of Look Behind
Format: LP
Label: Palace of Lights
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"The Land Of Look Behind soundtrack returns to vinyl in a remastered and expanded edition that includes a download of three previously unheard and unreleased tracks from the original sessions. Alan Greenberg, who wrote and directed this film documenting the funeral of Bob Marley, provided K. Leimer with location tapes which were used to originate many of the rhythmic patterns for Land Of Look Behind. Loops of the monologues and phrases that exhibited more distinctive cadences and pacing, the words, glottal stops, clicks and coughs of witnesses were used as cues for the percussion instruments. In effect, speech became the organizing principle of the musical score. By eliminating the accuracy of click tracks, musicians were prompted to rove through the inconsistent intervals of the voice-derived patterns. Also included is a four-page insert featuring an essay by Paul Dickow." - Palace of Lights.

Title: Permissions
Format: CD
Label: Palace of Lights
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Released in 2012. Permissions is somewhat of a collaboration with Taylor Deupree, given that the 12k head is credited with additional voices, post-production, edit, mix, and mastering. The detail isnt insignificant, either, as Permissions largely collapses whatever stylistic differences might normally separate 12k and Palace of Lights recordings. Arranged into concise song-like structures, the material exemplifies the concentration on fluttering micro-sound textures, electro-acoustic sounds, and field recordings thats shared by the two creators and often captured on a typical 12k release. Listed sans titles on the CD cover as simply Permissions 01-16, the settings function like snapshots that cumulatively provide an in-depth portrait of Leimers range. The mood is generally laid-back, meditative, and explorative, but the elements drawn upon are not only pastoral in nature as industrial sounds surface, too." - Palace of Lights.

Title: Re-enact
Format: CD
Label: Palace of Lights
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Following a few years of back-catalog recovery, K. Leimer has completed work on his first new solo album since The Grey Catalog. These ten new tracks follow an emergent arc, a refinement of the techniques he has used since Permissions. Highly tactile, with an emphasis on subharmonics, Re-enact sketches an antediluvian soundstage of deteriorating fragments scattered among still-recognizable artifacts. This multitude of points-of-collapse in textural, timbre, harmonic and rhythmic relationships, continually folds in on itself to reveal moments of inner coherence and cognition. Embedded throughout with a wealth of digital and analog detail, Re-enact sets a new post-ambient direction for Leimers work. K. Leimer founded Palace of Lights in 1979. Leimers early work has recently been reissued by Autumn and RVNG, and his early cassette work is in the critically acclaimed VOD box set American Cassette Culture (VOD 139KL-LP, 2015). Leimer has been actively producing music since the mid-1970s -- his current catalog includes 17 albums plus two collaborative albums with Marc Barreca. Leimers work is included in the collection of The British Library." - Palace of Lights.

Title: Early Works 1969-1970
Format: LP
Label: Robot
Country: USA
Price: $28.00
"This LP of early compositions by Jacques Lejeune features three seminal works: Dune Multitude En Fête and Petite Suite, originally released in the Perspective Musicales series in 1970, and a previously unpublished composition, Géodes, from the same period. These three pieces (not included in Robots 2013 Parages and Other Electroacoustic Works 1971-1985 three-CD set (ROBOT 042CD)) are some of Lejeunes earliest music for tape and may be considered a "prequel" to his later, more thematic works. Still, his concise musical narrative is ever-present in these first recordings. The side-long Dune Multitude En Fête (1969) refers to multitude, number, celebration, and any crowd situation as a form of ceremony -- all evoking a circular gaze, as topics of the different aural events and their anecdotal development emerge, leading to the dream, as a story we tell to ourselves. Géodes (1970) features percussion improvisations by Lauréat Dionne with Lejeunes tape work inflecting prisms deep into its thundering, rhythmic core. This concert version appears on vinyl for the first time. Concluding the album is Petite Suite (1970), with each section referencing a traditional musical form using both anecdotal as well as instrumental flourishes. The original drum and guitar elements are performed here by Michel Foudrinoy and Jean-Pierre Vassout. These pieces have been compared to Pierre Henrys bold rock themes in Messe Pour Le Temps Présent and also recall the peculiar atmospheres of some of the great early Nurse with Wound records that would follow. In contrast, Lejeunes early approach was heavily steeped in sonic narratives, combining unusual and ambiguous events to create a sound world uniquely his own. Early Works 1969-1970 explores the first precision splices by one of the true visionaries of musique concrète." - Robot.

Title: Parages and Other Electroacoustic Works 1971-1985
Format: 3 CD
Label: Robot
Country: USA
Price: $33.00
2013 release. "This three-CD retrospective includes six compositions by French composer Jacques Lejeune (born 1940), totaling near three-and-a-half hours of music. Presented chronologically, these works for tape represent a stunning array of themes, images, and destinations covering the years 1971-1985. Throughout Lejeunes compositional development, dreams, reflections on the written fable, and mythological thinking all reappear. Originally released on LP by INA-GRM, both Parages and Symphonie au bord dun paysage have been remastered and have never before been available on CD. Parages (1973) is a work exploring distances (or vicinities), cycles, and the transparency of the sky. A deep undercurrent of perpetual movement and altitude -- flight and fall -- is ever-present in the piece, encompassing a procession of auditory colors, places, and events. These elements multiply, uniting beyond their individual musical processes, further immersing the listener within an increasing auditory field. Symphonie au bord dun paysage (1981) is a composition concerned with motion, panoramas, and geographical relationships -- all as if being at the edge of a vast chasm. Also included is Lejeunes masterwork, Blanche-Neige (1975). This has been regarded as one of the most peculiar and elusive recordings in the whole GRM-related canon. This early LP, also known as Fantasmes, was originally recorded for a theater/ballet production of the same name. Loosely based on the text by the Brothers Grimm, with its narrative symbolism and tale of the deep forest, Blanche-Neige is one of the finest compositions of cinéma pour loreille (cinema for the ear) for tape and electronics from the period. Cri (1971) is the earliest piece featured in the set, with an emphasis on the very nature of vocal expression. Integrating mixed landscapes and a spacious use of cyclical elements, this work offers a fantastic prelude to Lejeunes evolution as a composer. Additionally featured are Entre terre et ciel (1979) and Les palpitations de la forêt (1985). These two works are concerned with the natural world, labyrinths, clusters, and intermingled morphologies of the Earth. This box set includes a 28-page bilingual booklet (in English and French) with detailed program notes, as well as a 32-page booklet of interpretive stanzas surrounding these bizarre and evocative works. Meticulously translated and collected for the first time in print, these writings offer a rare insight into Lejeunes creative process. Parages and Other Electroacoustic Works 1971-1985 is an essential overview of one of the seminal figures in musique concrète." - Robot.

The cover of that double 10″ looks great, printed by Knust in Nijmegen on their riso machines and has a great naive charm, which adds to the music), as these fifty-five pieces are from roughly 2003 to 2014 and are short, sketch like, with Danielle Lemaire mostly using her voice, telling stories, singing, whispering, moaning and whatever else; sometimes she plays her trademark percussion (xylophones mostly), organ and whatever she else can use. Its all very small and intimate music, almost like a poetry release. Obviously (?) I lost my way while playing this and looking at the track list; it acted in the end more as an endless, unconscious stream of sounds, words, music, and environments.

Title: Lucia Pamela: The Story of a Document Humain
Format: Book + CD
Label: Inner Landscapes
Country: Netherlands
Price: $15.00
Edition of 250. “In 1998 Danielle Lemaire got to know the music and drawings of Lucia Pamela (United States, 1904-2002). She felt an immediate affinity with Pamelas -relatively unknown- work. Since then Danielle Lemaire works on a comprehensive project around this eccentric lady – including a documentary film (85 minutes), photographs, films, drawings, music, audio-and book publications and a comprehensive archive of correspondence-and research materials.

Lucia Pamela, entertainer,outsider artist, first woman on the moon and Miss St.Louis in 1927, was leader of one of the first female swingbands in the 1920s and 30s in the South of the United States and made the album Into Outer Space With Lucia Pamela in 1969.

The music and songs on this LP are about Lucias trip to the moon and are recorded there. The LP (label Gulfstream Records) in the meantime has become a rare collectors item.

Danielle Lemaire researched the progression and production of this wonderous album and the remarkable life of Lucia Pamela. Amongst those Danielle Lemaire received support from Pamelas grandson, Hollywood filmmaker, Dale Rosenbloom. He commissioned Lemaire to make a documentary on his grandmother when he noticed the flourishing friendship between Lemaire and Pamela.

Danielle met Pamela several times, befriended her and her “American Dream” family, who are owners of the football team The St.Louis Rams. This was a unique entrance into the life Lucia Pamela and her family-that otherwise would have remained closed.” - Inner Landscapes.

“Layered varieted songs, some influenced by indonesian gamelan and chinese opera and ninety-seventees new age. Some life recordings. ... Dreamy, outspinning, passionate, dead honoust, layered songs.” - Danielle Lemaire.

“Already inside music and art for many years now, I do happen to know Danielle Lemaire pretty well, so she tells me about a lot of her activities. From all the musicians reviewed in the weeklies, there are very few I see on a regular basis, but Miss Lemaire is one. I do know she is in part of Indonesian background and that music and drawing are her main activities. In music, since that is what we are dealing with in Vital Weekly, Lemaire uses voice, small keyboards, percussion and it all has a very personal character. The songs she sings are small and intimate, not always being in tune. That gives her music a slightly outsider like character, but believe me: she is hardly an outsider, and someone who knows what she is doing. On this new release it seems that world music (for the lack of a better word) seems to have an important place. Gamelan like percussive sounds, the Vietnamese music from a sampling project earlier this year and influences from Chinese opera. Although I quite enjoy this, I must be honest: I particularly like the instrumental pieces, such as the largely instrumental Bricks From The Balcony, or the wordless Set Me Free, the long ambient piece of Licht!, or the nasty harmonium of Schaduwtrein. When its all the more obvious singing and playing keyboards, its something Im not that interested in. But as said, this is all highly subjective and highly personal. Not just this reviewers opinion, but also the way Lemaire approaches her music. That is something one either likes very much or not at all. I walk a thin line between that; difficult, but the more experimental pieces proof its possible. Great looking digipack actually, very professionally made!” - Vital Weekly.

"Alga Marghen proudly presents an exceptionally wild sonic art and poetry document, Maurice Lemaîtres Poemes et musiques lettristes et hyperphonie, recorded between 1952 and 1968. What does Lemaître contribute to the Isouian poetic creation? What? Music as background to "lettries?" These are heretic hyperphonies forming such a specific corpus in the Lettric sphere. Neither Isou, nor Pomerand, Dufrene, Wolman, or Spacagna achieved what Lemaître did. Lemaître dares the unthinkable: neo-yé-yé rhythmic Muzak destroyed by "lettries," disseminated with the utmost care. One more treasure: the very "pop music"-oriented Lemaître with his "I wanna go home mister" blues, here in a version with a borderline insane companion: Isidore Isou. Never a bluesman, thanks only to his irradiant genius, has ever been such a stoned sideman as Isou. This record includes an improvisation held at the Museum of Modern Art, Paris, 1961, in the context of a reading by Isidore Isou. Also included on this LP is a previously-unreleased torrid "concerto" titled "Lalcove," for a Lettrist male chorus and female solo orgasms, followed by "Lascension du Phenix M.B.," a sound collage from 1967 (predating more than 10 years M.B.s first primitive concrète music assemblages under the name Sacher Pelz). No need for Yoko Onos loops for another "Revolution 9" -- one year before, Lemaître cuts the tape with a scalpel, leaving the cuts exposed: home revolution in between two manifestos and three hypergraphic paintings. Offer yourself the joy of listening to these recordings that alas, Lemaître, whose hearing stops precisely at 250Hz, can no longer have the pleasure to taste.

"This LP started out as a recording of an improvised by Jose Marchi (guitar), Marcelo Aguirre (drums). and C.D. (electronics). After which C.D. took the recordings disassembled them and constructed new sound shapes from the various pieces. C.D. calls the resultant sound "electro-acoustic rock". Early tracks on side A are faithful to the original recordings; strange polymorphous jams featuring nimble but muscular drumming, and a large vocabulary of guitar scrapes and molten distortion. But soon we start to hear the tracks fold into themselves, the sense of time and space distorting as if some powerful psychotropic drug is starting to kick in. Emerging from these folds in space, the listener enters new locations; guitars that echo like chimes through radio static into places both soothing and menacing, organic and manufactured- a deeply ambient space, yet jagged as broken glass." - The Ceiling.

But like the weird alchemy that made Todd Rundgrens early 70s sides so crucial, this new Lentils album manages to work as a damn-near-joyful explosion of (or maybe from) pent-up emotion. And it sounds beautiful. As he demonstrated ably with his former band, Happy Jawbone, Lukes creative engine is a weirdly canted turbine of distemper. His best songs are always moving along and falling apart at the same time, and so it is here. Like all top-rated generators of skew-assed roots-pop, the Lentils never neglect hooks no matter how wiggly the music gets. Just when you start to figure everythings gone to total chaos, a melody rises from the urk to grab your aural worm and dive for the bottom. There are moments here that recall everyone from Big Star to the Grifters to some drunk guy who really likes Dion. It manages to have a continuously riveting folk-rock center no matter which direction it turns. And man, it turns plenty. We suggest you do the same" - Byron Coley, 2015. Edition of 300.

"First physical evidence of the "band" that entered the room when Happy Jawbone departed. And its a beaut. Pressed on clear vinyl with a silkscreen on the blank side (a la Albert Aylers Bells on ESP), packed with a 16-page book of Luke Csehaks notebook fragments, the record is a compendium of ideas that were once lost but are now found. For live performance, The Lentils have now assumed some sort of physical presence worthy of their sounds wide hips. But at the time of this recording, the project was solo Luke. He did the art for the vinyl, played all the music (apart from some Chris Weisman support on one track and some tootling from hippie prepsters from Putney) and poured a lot of weird soul into the effort. It is a goddamn stellar production. The music ranges from "The Wrong Song," perhaps the most blasted evidence yet of the mythical border that separate Brattleboro and Dunedin (a spectacular crevice filled with broken glass), to "The Wrong Wings," which has a jug band sound that would make Norman Greenbaum beam with pride. "Wings" even has some little psych guitar filigree that is pure Petaluma 72. Genius. Theres also the strange-strings attack of "Roaring Milk" and the strangled Wooden Wand approach of "A Pocket Full of Blood," which has the best Beck lyrics not written by Beck since "MTV Makes me Want to Smoke Crack." With My Pillow Lava Part One: My Deaf Son, Luke has created a kind of new lonesome stranger archetype that is both more lonesome and far, far stranger than any archetype that precedes it. What a treat for you. Edition of 200 copies." - Feeding Tube.

Title: Anthology of Interplanetary Folk Music Vol. 1 : Nommos/Visiting
Format: Double LP
Label: Rvng International
Country: USA
Price: $24.00
“Craig Leons seminal synthesizer albums Nommos and Visiting are finally re-editioned in definitive form as the Anthology of Interplanetary Folk Music Vol. 1 for RVNG Intl.s archival series.

Issued respectively by John Faheys Takoma record label in 1980 and Leons Arbitor private press in 1982, Nommos and Visiting were the twin brainchildren of studio wizard Craig Leon. Leons production was pivotal in realizing the debut recordings by Ramones, Blondie, Richard Hell and Suicide. While those albums broke ground in new worlds of sound, Leons own debut album was arguably, if not literally, more alien.

In 1973, the Brooklyn Museum hosted a comprehensive collection of sculptures by the Dogon of the Republic of Mali, a tribe whose religion is based in reveries and recollections of a visit from an extraterrestrial species they named Nommos. Years after experiencing the exhibit, Leon remained fascinated by the idea of alien visitors sharing not just stories of their home-planet, but musical traditions as well. For the classically trained Leon, a puzzle was presented and a challenge in place: what would music sound like if handed down from an ancient alien species? And how best to imagine it?

Upon meeting Fahey in the late 70s, Leon pitched the concept as an opportune time to employ the latest and greatest synthesizer technology available. An avant empathist and eternally free spirit, Fahey enthusiastically green-lighted the project for his Takoma imprint. After a secluded week in an Austin, Texas studio with his partner, wife and collaborator Cassell Webb, Leon returned with a collection of incorporeal melodies generated by the Oberheim OB-X, Roland JP-4 and Arp 2600 synthesizers propelled by primitive rhythms programmed on a prototype of Roger Linns nascent drum-machine, the LM-1.

Issued by Fahey with zero expectation of the same radio airplay Leon accomplished with his pop productions, Nommos now stands as an innovative example of cosmic-synth composition that wasnt made for its time or any other. For this edition, Leon has in fact re-animated Nommos by re-recording the exact audio signals as preserved in the albums original studio notes. Every patch, tape-delay speed and outboard setting was transcribed as first scored, materializing the best possible audio of an album whose masters were unaccessible to Leon due to a major label merger milieu from years ago. Additionally, the re-master of Visiting was supervised firsthand by Leon. As its title suggests, Visiting materialized in 1982 as a conceptual continuation of Nommos. The album is in equal measure more improvisatory and constructed than its predecessor. Both albums were intended to be listened to as a set in the first volume of Leons Anthology of Interplanetary Folk Music (the title was an homage to Harry Smiths influential collection of folk music issued two decades prior). A creative evolutionist, Leon made subtle edits and compositional additions to both albums to enhance the connectivity and encourage infinite interpretation.

While reissues and bootlegs have appeared to relieve the demand for these records, this collection will stand as definitive versions authorized by Craig Leon himself. The vinyl edition will be housed in a 2xLP set that includes detailed artwork and two essays by Leon. The first tells the complete story of the stargazing Dogon people and their prescient understanding of cosmology. The second details Leons adventure in creating the Anthology of Interplanetary Folk Music Vol. 1, an epic story bookended on this side of history as one seamless synth classic.” - Rvng International.

"Nommos Visiting is an electronic work based in speculative fiction, written in 1979 by American composer Craig Leon. It was inspired by a 1970s New York exhibition devoted to the art of the Dogon people of Mali. The Dogon are renowned for their cosmogony and for their sculptures evoking their religious beliefs, received from extraterrestrial visitors, known as the Nommos, a group of amphibian humanoids who came to them from the region of the double star Sirius. Leon explains, It was an attempt to imagine the music that the Nommos brought with them to Earth from their home planet, thereby influencing the development of our own music." - Aparte.

Format: LP

Country: USA

"CRAIG LEON, producer of late 70s albums by Suicide and Blondie among many others, recorded two solo records in the early 80s of proto-techno minimalist drone, including NOMMOS, for John Faheys Takoma label. Long considered a classic of electronic and cosmic music, as well as being a total anomaly for Takoma, NOMMOS is an album that sounds as if it could have been produced any time from its actual conception in 1981, up until the present. A pure mass of eye blinding expanse set adrift into the world. One time pressing, paste on front and back covers."

"Most people should recognize the name of this artist. However, most people will recognize the name of this artist when its paired with a production credit, not as...well, the artist. Craig Leon is, of course, one of the seminal NYC punk/New Wave producers who brought us so many excellent things from that scene, ranging from Suicide to Blondie. And hes continued his production work on up to the present day, of course. Still, very few people know about the electronic albums hes made himself. And thats a shame, because theyre fine, fine drone-a-delic stuff. Especially his first, "Nommos". Used as a soundtrack for a dance work by Twila Tharp (as was a lot of nifty NYC stuff from this general period), "Nommos" is supposedly based on African rhythms and the like. But really, its always reminded me more of some sort of missing link between the proto-industrial rhythm and drone of Suicide and the whole minimalist drone/static/repetition method as in Terry Riley, LaMonte Young, etc. Youve got the rhythm generator thing going on. Youve got the synthdrones. Youve got the constant repetition. The whole hypnotic but not necessarily relaxing vibe. Much of the album uses the nifty-but-simple trick of comb filtering to make the drums/rhythm box ring on a certain pitch. And then over this, Leon builds up layers of more drones. And more. And even more. And then sometimes, as in "Donkeys Bearing Cups", also adds a bunch of evil, headwarping processing to this. End result: hypno-brainmelt. On the first side of this, both "Ring..." and "Donkeys..." are fairly fast-paced affairs, constantly rhythmically pulsing, droning, buzzing...like the discoid equivalent of some mutation of LaMonte Youngs "The Tortoise, His Dreams and Journeys" pieces. But "Nommo" slows things way down, with this discontinuous, jerky, almost bluesy-type beat, over which everything just slowly builds chordally, like some weird heat-mirage architecture. Its a serious eyes-roll-back-in-head sort of thing...blissy, hypnotic...off in a kosmische sort of zone, but at the same time not really having that kosmische sound to it. Side two kicks off with a harsh, bzzzaaating rhythm, also jerky, and incomplete-sounding. But in this case, instead of building up a chord, Leon builds the components of the rhythm pattern. One bit here, another bit off in the reverb zone out there somewhere, and so on as this insectoid buzz-hum starts to key up and ripple away, a bit disquietingly perhaps. Then a voice...an actual voice, yes...and then another, joins this, sometimes tunelessly, making odd birdcall-like sounds, ahhs, wails, vocal line fragments, and so on. Whoevers doing this isnt credited, but I can say that it reminds me some of Meredith Monks primal-vocal type work. Eerie, spacy...quite trippy. Then BAM!!! suddenly were dropped without warning into the fast, frantic rhythm-box groove of "She Wears a Hemispherical Skull Cap". Its abrupt, almost startling, because you get locked into the former and chucked headlong into this. But as a chordal, hymnlike polysynth starts to arch over this, you just sit back and go yeahhhh.... as the dronebliss just washes over you in one long I-chord being played out and with. Theres things here that, like I said, remind one straightaway of Suicide. But its never really as abrasive an experience as Martin Revs great work with that duo. Instead, its more blissed-out. You could also draw some comparisons with some of the more motorik Kraut stuff; theres a sonic kinship here with, say, Clusters "Zuckerzeit". But its the obvious minimal/drone school linkages that really draw things together here, from the buzzdrone beats to the washing chords and hummmmmmmming synths. Head music? Oh, yes...yes, indeedy. But also, the sort of head music that anyone with an astute ear for an electronic beat can gravitate to. As for where to get this these days...no idea. Its odd that Takoma, which is usually known for folk-type releases, put this out, because its about as antithetical to a folksy-sounding record as one can get. But its very much worth hunting down if youre into the robotiker groove-trance brainhum sound its got." - Julian Cope. Very highly recommended!

"First appearing incongruously on John Faheys Takoma label in 1981, Nommos remains enshrouded in impenetrable mystery-from its understated artwork to the rich assemblage of analog synths contained inside. According to Head Heritage, Nommos is the "missing link between the proto-industrial rhythm and drone of Suicide and the whole minimalist drone / static / repetition method of Terry Riley and La Monte Young." Best known as a producer, CRAIG LEON worked on landmark debuts from Suicide, Richard Hell, The Ramones and Blondie. Rather than ape the early NYC punk that he helped foster, Leons own music is filled with lush textures and pulsating rhythm boxes. Comparisons can be made to German innovators such as Cluster and La Dusseldorf, yet Nommos is an unbalanced cosmos marked by anxious melodies, aggressive shifts and spiritual overtones. The name "Nommos" itself refers to mythical deities worshipped by tribes in West Africa. Some scholars have argued that the myth has extraterrestrial roots. While these are significant details for understanding the albums peculiar meditative qualities, there was little context for these sounds upon their initial release. Even today, in the cold light of the early 21st century, Leon sounds fiercely contemporary.

"By 1977, the year of Kansas City Slickers release, most bands had happily ensconced themselves in one niche or another--one was either Punk or Power Pop or New Wave or ---- (fill in the trend of your choice), but The Leopards fell into no such handy category. Kansas City Slickers was unique for its time--certainly no other record of its day sounds remotely like it--and remains so today. Back then its uniqueness baffled critics who, in the few places where the album was actually reviewed, did little more than point to the albums Kinks influence. While the influence of The Kinks, The Beach Boys, The Easybeats and other Sixties groups is indeed evident on the album, such a superficial assessment does not begin to do justice to the cornucopia of sound on Kansas City Slickers. Herein rock n roll meets ragtime, old Hollywood musicals and other forms of early 20th Century American music, a delightfully original melange you will not taste elsewhere. Recorded and mixed at Moon Studios--ie, the basement of Dennis Pashs parents house on Maggie Lane in Kansas City, Kansas--the production and muscianship reaches a level of sophistication not often associated with basement recordings. Even so, protected by lack of technology from slick by-the-rote machinations of the professional studio, Kansas City Slickers retains its basement charm. When Dennis Pash and Kevin Sanders first decided to release privately pressed records as The Leopards in 1975 it was quite a revolutionary strategy, the DIY ethos of punk still a few years in the future. The world would simply have to catch up at some point in time. Judging by the appreciative audience Kansas City Slickers has grown over the years--this despite its exceeding rarity (only 1,000 copies of the album were pressed)--that time may very well be now." - James Marinovich.

“Music that moves like smoke and incapacitates your defenses as only the “It was 1977, the year when punk rock exploded in the face of disco-music, but some thinking heads in Italy managed to escape the set trends of the year and walk a totally different path. Pioneers like Franco Battiato had already been experimenting with a crash of rock and electroacoustic music since the beginning of the decade, and others like Roberto Cacciapaglia or Riccardo Zappa would explore farther in those lands, mixing acoustic instruments with the bourgeoning synth technology. Among all these artists, an obscure little gem missed the attention it deserved: Integrati… Disintegrati, by Francesco Leprino, is undoubtedly one of the best albums of the genre. More freely unchained from the prog rock links that albums like Battiatos celebrated Fetus and Pollution LPs or Zappas Celestion still retain, Leprino merges a very pure classical instrumentation of Spanish guitar, piano and flute with more modern electric guitar sounds, 12 string guitar and -of course- a V.C.S. 3 and Moog synths background that creates highly avantgarde atmospheres. Binson tape echoes, Hammond and Thomas organs, oboes, vibraphone and other additional instruments add texture richness to the final mix.
An outstanding opus split through both sides of an LP in two 20 minutes long pieces that has become a much sought after album among collectors. It will appeal those interested in the development of synth music, beautiful athmosferic landscapes and electronic-acoustic orchestrated sounds.
Reissued under license from Francesco Leprino in a 500 copies limited edition that respects the original artwork, comes with remastered sound and includes an insert with liner notes and photos.” - Wah Wah.

Travelon Gamelon (Music for Bicycles), realized by the sound artist Richard Lerman used real bicycles as musical instruments. Performed in the 1970s-1980s, he realized that the music for bicycles sounded like gamelan music in Southeast Asia. No joke, its serious, a real true story. Travelon Gamelon had only ever been released as an album on Folkways Records in 1983, including 4 tracks of promenade and concert versions. It was long out of print and became a very hard to find, sought-after album for experimental/industrial music fans. This long-awaited re-issue is its first-ever CD release. This one and only original performance is not only an unrivaled experimental piece but also is the ultimate "industrial" music that will appeal to heavy noise/industrial music listeners. Music Of Richard Lerman1964-1987 is a 2CD collection, with the Travelon Gamelon (Music for Bicycles) album on disc one with an unissued bonus track. And disc two features other various soundworks of Lermans entire pieces performed and recorded from 1964-1987. Both discs are CD-Extra (CD enhanced) including movies of his scarce performances on QuickTime and scores/diagrams for those works on PDF file.

Taken from the WFMU blog: "I was half-expecting this LP that arrived featuring gobbledy-gook, electric-guitar-played-with-mittens French covers of Johnny B Goode and Be Bop A Lula to be some kind of elaborate prank on the Norton/Crypt crowd, but the Born Bad labels JB Guillot assures us of the bonafide primitive genius of Les Blousons Noirs, whose 1961 and 1962 EPs have just been issued on a single LP. If this is indeed the case, these guys have ascended to the automatic altar of Hasil, King Usniewicz and the U-Turns for pure stupe-rock greatness, and even predate The Shaggs by half a decade. Says JB: Maybe its the first proto punk/DIY in the world ... if I have a good memory, Chicken Walk (Hasil Adkins) is from 1961, too. Even in France, nobody knows Les Blousons Noirs, this band is really the greatest discovery of my life as a record-digger. I have searched for members of this band for five years, but to no avail. I have published want ads in national magazines, talked with all the biggest French 60s collectors, etc.) but never found anything. I met an old guy who worked with 60s bands from Bordeaux, and in his opinion, Les Blousons Noirs were a couple of "pieds noirs" ("black feet" -- French people who lived in Algeria during the French colonization. The studio Guilain where both EPs were recorded was located on a street with a clothing manufacturer on it. The guy thinks the band worked at this manufacturer and that they were only in Bordeaux temporarily. It could be one of the reasons we have never found them. Wowza." -Brian Turner, WFMU.

"The best-ever French 77 punk band, next to Metal Urbain. Killer and cult and a true must-have. This is an official reissue, with a lot of unissued tracks. "In a particularly raw moment captured on the disk you are holding, the singer (whose name escapes me) shouts derisively at the audience, Vivement que je sois vieux, tout sec et tout rugueux?" (trans. I cant wait to be old, dried out and bumpy). And indeed, it required not only the passage of three decades, with their corresponding toll on these two-bit heroes, but also the benevolent determination of JB Wizzz and the utilization of space-age technology to transform crusty cassettes, forgotten in a dusty corner, into something vaguely listenable that resembles an album of the Olivensteins. Obviously, this is not precisely the record that we dreamed of making in 1979. It certainly would not have contained bits of concerts. (But finally, who knows?) However, the sonic dabbling that you will discover on the demo of Euthanasie and some rather strange tracks like Le Spécialiste are surely examples of what we wanted people to hear at the time. All this will astonish you, proving that (yes, yes!) the Olivensteins possessed unsuspected abilities, had a taste for originality and could occasionally transcend being simple morons. Naturally, certain compulsive freaks, itching for their nerdy thrills, will complain that we have not unearthed other morsels from our repertoire for this album. But even if certain songs like Le Doryphore, Né Pour Dormir or Pétain Darlan Cétait Le Bon Temps (which takes direct aim at the stupid Nazi Chic that was trendy at the end of the 70s) are not found on this somewhat incoherent compilation, it is only because no version exists that is even close to listenable. If you dont manage to understand all the words, or if the wretched singing bothers you, dont worry about it: fortunately, this is not an album of syrupy French chansons!" -Eric Tandy (singer).

"Legendary Japanese rock outfit Les Rallizes Denudés were formed in 1967 and incredibly, for a group that had only one official release (Oz Days Live, a double vinyl compilation release in 1973), played their last gig almost 30 years later in October 1996. The bands name apparently means "fucked up and naked," which more than adequately describes their music. Formed by band leader Mizutani Takashi, the music remained remarkably familiar over the years, and is best described as high volume, raw, lo-fi, repetitive, feedback-drenched guitar-noise fests with nods in the direction of The Velvet Underground and Blues Creation, but without the electronics. Radical left-wing politics were never far from the bands agenda, with one original band member (Wakabayashi) being involved in the Japanese Red Armys hijacking of a flight to North Korea. Consequently, the groups live appearances became less frequent and increasingly clandestine. All the bands albums were released in very small quantities, and because of the groups reputation for secrecy and violence, as well as the difficulty in tracking down their recordings, Les Rallizes Denudés has assumed almost mythical status.

Formed by band leader Mizutani Takashi, the music remained remarkably familiar over the years, and is best described as high volume, raw, lo-fi, repetitive, feedback-drenched guitar-noise fests with nods in the direction of The Velvet Underground and Blues Creation, but without the electronics. Radical left-wing politics were never far from the bands agenda, with one original band member (Wakabayashi) being involved in the Japanese Red Armys hijacking of a flight to North Korea. Consequently, the groups live appearances became less frequent and increasingly clandestine. All the bands albums were released in very small quantities, and because of the groups reputation for secrecy and violence, as well as the difficulty in tracking down their recordings, Les Rallizes Denudés has assumed almost mythical status. Blind Baby Has Its Mothers Eyes sits at #11 on Julian Copes list of top Japanese albums." - Phoenix

"Another crucial release from the highly influential and reclusive Japanese psychedelic noise band Les Rallizes D�nud�s. Originally formed in 1967, the band was known for its ties to avant-garde theater groups (as typified by Shuji Terayamas troupe) and leftist political groups, and their feedback-drenched live shows and use of strobe lights and mirror balls onstage earned them comparisons with The Velvet Underground. In 1970, bass player Moriaki Wakabayashi was involved in the hijacking of Japan Airlines Flight 351, orchestrated by the Japanese Red Army. Singer Takashi Mizutani was allegedly offered a role in the hijacking, but he turned it down. Cable Hogue is a CD release compiled by Mizutani from the original tapes he used for the Rallizes video which was released in 1992. Digitally remastered.

"Legit" Rallizes material has been on sale for a total of about 5 days over the past 40 years (some kind of record?), so dont feel so bad about having to suffer over this one." - FE. "One of the most sought after Japanese underground psychedelic/acid rock bands. Recorded in Kyoto, Japan in 1970, and for the first time ever on LP. Contrary to their general recognition, the musical style in this album is totally loner acid folk. The A-side includes totally downer and psycho-atmospheric songs, with desolate vocals, beautiful & spiritual. Whereas the B-side features an over 22 minutes long track called The Last One, a slowly building epic with aggressive vocals, totally trippy and freaked out drenched in psychedelic fuzzy & distorted phased-out, feedback guitar-outbursts with effects and echo all over the place."

"Between August 1980 and March 1981, Les Rallizes Denudes (or The Naked Larryz, as the long-lost acetate they are rumored to have recorded for Virgin Records in the mid-70s dubbed them) played seven concerts in and around Tokyo. Never officially released, illicit ninth generation cassette copies circulated in Japanese fan circles for many years, attaining a whispered, Holy Grail status amongst initiates to the Rallizes cult. High quality soundboard versions were finally released by the secretive Univive label in 2005. Three of the best of these concerts are collected on Double Heads, all recorded at Yaneura, a small club in the teeming neon teen shopping mecca of Shibuya in Tokyo. Together, these three concerts comprise a singularly pivotal moment in Les Rallizes Denudes development -- as well as some of the most glacially psychedelic music of their long career. This numbered, limited edition 6CD box set contains a booklet with liner notes. Digitally remastered." -Phoenix

“Les Rallizes Dénudés are one of the earliest and most revolutionary Japanese psychedelic rock bands, and existed off and on through four decades. The band formed in November of 1967 at Kyoto University, inspired by Exploding Plastic Inevitable-era Velvet Underground as well as the over-amplified rock of Blue Cheer and Mario Schifanos avant-garde ensemble Le Stelle. By 1968 they were gigging live and even began a regular collaboration with an avant-garde theater troupe, which ended the next year because of Les Rallizes penchant for extreme volume. Not only did they use massive amounts of feedback at loud volumes, their stage shows used strobe lights, mirror balls, and other effects for a live experience that was a total sensory assault. This historic performance recorded in Tachikawa in 1977 is perhaps the most beloved document of the bands sound: extreme feedback and distressed guitar with detached vocals laid over languid rhythms -- unbelievable in intensity.” - Victory.

"The best-known studio recordings by Les Rallizes Dénudés is the legendary Mars Studio sessions from 1980. The tracks were laid down during the tenure in the group of guitarist Fujio Yamaguchi. Yamaguchi is one of the more notorious figures in the Japanese rock underground. He was born to a Japanese mother and a black British father, brought up in a reformatory before channeling his anger and energy into a series of rock bands including Group Sounds garage rockers The Dynamites and proto-glam stompers Murahachibu. Yamaguchis sojourn in Rallizes lasted just over a year, from early 1980 to March 1981, but the weightless, languid weird-form blues created by the meshing of Mizutanis billowing feedback and Yamaguchis acid-etched lines has been regarded by many Japanese fans as one of the groups peaks. The fourth disc in the set comprises a live show from the same period as the studio recordings. Recorded on September 11, 1980 at the Yaneura club in the Shibuya district of Tokyo, this show was previously released under the title Double Heads September, though it was not included in the Double Heads 6CD document of Fujios tenure in the group.

My giddy aunt, whats this, then, a Meaty Beaty Big & Bouncy from the Underworld? A rough guide to Japrocks most intuitive non-career movers? Has the worlds most revolutionary rocknroll band released a compilation album of leader Mizutanis most frequently requested tracks due to overwhelming popular demand? Ja, mein hairies, this certainly seems to be the case. For, with the arrival of this superb Flightless Bird compilation, obsessive fans of Les Rallizes Denudés (are there any other kinds?) finally have a proper early career overview of Mizutani & Co. at their fingertips, a 70-minute-long super distillation of this most contrary of bands choicest musical moves executed between 1967-82, a superb sounding and partly/mostly chronological trawl through the freaked out and perpetually-yelping mindscape of singer and avant-avalanche guitarmonger Mizutani, and his sinister-yet-interchangeable pool of black clad world-to-rights acolytes." --Head Heritage

Title: Power Hr
Format: CD
Label: Holy Mountain
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Yep, the bands name is LESBIAN (members of GOLGOTHAN SUNRISE, ASVA, and THE ABODOX). Why? Well, equally cool names like Black Sabbath, Venom and Pentagram were already taken. But also, the name Lesbian evokes pure, sexually charged freedom-and thats what rock music is all about. But enough about the name, lets talk about the Lesbian sound; its heavy, melodic, dramatic and dynamic. The Seattle-based quartets multifaceted debut album Power Hr heralds the birth of The New Wave of American Psychedelic Metal. Each of the albums four tracks shifts moods, dynamics and styles. In any given song, Lesbian deftly lunges from black metal-style blast-beat-and-16th-note-guitar-lines into 70s styled stoner rock riffing and then leaps into lush melodic passages reminiscent of Godspeed You Black Emperor!. The band blends the best elements of many styles of metal: doom, thrash, black, progressive and, yes, even good old "heavy" metal. Produced by RANDALL DUNN (Sunn O))), Boris, Earth) and packaged with artwork designed by STEPHEN OMALLEY." - Holy Mountain.

Price: $12.00
"Jason Lescalleet has been a monolithic presence in underground culture for nigh on 15 years. Here towers a man who has steadily advanced a music of great focus and originality. A man whose craft is born from that which others pronounce dead. Jason Lescalleet stands at the intersection where musique concrète, power electronics, tape composition and minimalism touch. His is a voice that is heard on the world stage. That is recognized and described. Through his recorded work and in live performance Jason has known the company of such great men as Joe Colley, John Hudak, Phill Niblock and Greg Kelley, to name but few. His art has found publication on such revered imprints as RRR, Erstwhile and his own Glistening Labs. And it is with no small pride that Kye now adds itself to the list. Fantasy and Electricity is Jason at his most forward-facing. A shimmering futuristic stomper pried from the ballrooms of Cologne, whilst Dictophone Music/Organ Music offers two miniature studies, both rich in granular detail. Fantasy and Electricity arrives in one of three sleeve designs each sporting original photography by Jason, in an edition of only 100 copies. For the fortunate few the fantasy is about to become a reality." - KYE.

Title: Much To My Demise
Format: LP
Label: Kye
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"Kye is proud to present Much To My Demise, the brand new solo LP by Jason Lescalleet. Since establishing himself as a preeminent voice in contemporary electro-acoustic study, Jason Lescalleet has, through his solo work and in collaboration, exploded the notion of what is possible within the realm of tape-based music. His recorded catalog acknowledges a diversity of application, from lo-fi reel-to-reel soundscaping and work for hand-held cassette machines, on through to digital sampling and computer generated composition. Lescalleets live actions further expand his ouevre to include work with video, dance, performance art and multi-media concerns. In recent years Lescalleets work has done much to explore the theme of loss and decay as sound - Another Example Of Parkinsons Law (2001), Ineinandergreifen and Untitled (from Mattresslessness) (2002) and The Pilgrim (2006) all hold the concept of senescence at heart. Much To My Demise carries the motif of decomposition further still. Recorded and constructed solely with analog sources, Much To My Demise showcases the result of a three month process in which pre-recorded reels of tape were transported outdoors, buried in soil and encouraged to corrode. The reels were then excavated, and their resultant signals transferred and edited to form an apparitional triptych of faded gesture and mood. Much To My Demise shows Lescalleet at a new creative peak, crafting a music that is equal parts comforting and haunting, and allowing us access to secret world of sound hidden in plain sight. Expertly mastered at Glistening Labs, Berwick, ME, Much To My Demise arrives in a Lescalleet designed monochromatic reverse board sleeve, with card stock insert, on white vinyl, in an edition of 500 copies." -Kye.

Price: $36.00
"An audio documentation of this electronics-and-tape artists coming to terms with the death of his father. The LP documents a performance JASON LESCALEET gave after discovering his father had terminal cancer; its floor-rattling flux of abrasive, low tones invokes the purr of a Chevys engine Lescalleets father discusses in a letter reproduced on the record jacket. A snippet of the final conversation he had with his father is buried in a heat-haze of tape hiss and air conditioner hum. The CD further extrapolates on Lescalleets fathers email; its 74 minutes move from dreamlike bell tones, through abraded, metallic hum, escalating into fierce, brutalizing waves of noise which then cut to a recording of Lescalleets daughter singing the Irish folk song "Molly Malone" at her grandfathers request. The book in which the CD is mounted has plenty more text and images. If you arent staggered by The Pilgrim, theres something wrong with you."

"Submerging a found image with an iconic squiggle has become a signature look for an aesthetic that has travelled now into its fourth decade. This release is a dedication to a person who is up to this point not officially recognized as a visual artist. If you follow the noise thing, the tape thing, the weird thing or the massachusetts thing you may have an original piece of artwork in your record collection worth well over the price of admission. Beniffer Editions replicates the tireless efforts of the experimental scenes most valiant visual manipulator. Rons technique derives from the necessity to put good noise product out there. His work is quick, uses stuff thats lying around, and is built like a tank often due to a colored strip of duct tape. His one off collages on many releases such as "The Best", "Moonlight In Vermont", "The Dog Lady Tapes", 1000 Locked Grooves" display the rigor of a dedicated pioneer. Theres no music with this book.

Format: Picture Disc LP

Price: $25.00
""Hasenlove" is the debut musical release of Hamburg visual artist Antonia Leukers. Shes a founding member of "Institut Hasenbart", a 10-piece artist collective dedicated to a meta-scientific research of hares and related social, zoological and aesthetical phenomena in reference to the art world and pop culture. Leukers has previously created stitched, sewed and animated sculptures while casually growing cucumbers, working for a local in-vitro fertilization hospital and advising young people on erotic issues as a German Dr. Ruth for a popular Online magazine. Inspired by a journey to Island, hearing local travel guides spontaneously interweaving their narrations with sudden outbursts of folklore chanting and an encounter with Wolfgang Müllers (Die Tödliche Doris) strategy of transforming and combining his (pseudo-)scientific, documentary and social research into a musical and artistic performance she started to elaborate her fellow artists lectures with musical renditions. As a passionate DIY home-recording artist she has soldered her own microphones, used cheap toy instruments, gameboys and minidisc recordings of kitchen sounds to create her very own bricolage comic universe. By recycling corny AOR mainstream Rock/Pop songs into some oddly disturbing and wonderfully weird rabbit love songs with newly-made German lyrics and combining these with some truly strange original compositions (ranging from freeform collage to distorted techno to deranged singer/songwriter stuff), she has created a musical love story in 7 parts. Spiritually influenced by (though not really sounding alike) German "Neue Deutsche Welle" artists such as Der Plan and theatrical and surreal performance bands like The Residents her versions of popular love songs sound like a teenage/female Andrew Lloyd Webber on bad acid. This 1-sided vinyl-only picture-disc LP is a strictly limited edtion of 300 copies. Both the gorgeous design and ornamental etching on the b-side have been done by fellow Hasenbart founding member Renate Nikolaus." - Dekorder.

Country: USA
Price: $21.00
"Leven Signs Hemp Is Here came and went in 1985, as both a cassette release (Unlikely Records) and vinyl release (Cordelia) in the blink of an eye. The duo of Peter Karkut and Maggie Turner managed to craft one of the strangest, most affecting albums of new wave experimentalism of the era, but due to the albums impossible-to-find status, its been largely forgotten and continuously overlooked ever since. A chance encounter with the cassette version of Hemp Is Here led Brad Rose of Digitalis on an internet scavenger hunt before tracking Karkut down. Through the years he has continued developing his various artistic pursuits, recently having his short film Sunflower Supermodel shown at the London Short Film Festival. Turners path is a bit foggier, though her collaboration with Karkut continues. But what is it about Hemp Is Here that makes it such a special record? At times it feels like a modern, electronic take on gamelan music with crashing rhythms and modal melodies corrupted via bewildering sonic processes. Karkut layers organ sequences over and over, constructing songs that have more in common tonally with music youd hear in gothic cathedrals than any sort of school of electronic music. Think of a more diverse, Eastern-tinged Flaming Tunes and you might be getting close. On the surface, Karkuts complex compositions seem at odds with Turners often-detached, stunning vocals, but its the dichotomy of those two disparate elements that latch on and dont let go. All new artwork by Pete Karkut. Remastered from the original tapes by James Plotkin, cut at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin." -Digitalis.

Price: $22.00
“…The a-side here is late-nite loungey 70s SSW fare with a jazzy/funky flare done to perfection. in some strange time-space filter it comes out sounding vividly real vs. dated/cheesy. He lets the tracks really drift... i havent heard alot of stuff like this. Side 2 is a bit folkier - A Friend of Mine / Hanging Around Waiting are both shorter songs in a Dylan-ish angry folk mold and kinda of break the spell youre under after the stoney looseness that leads up to it. He gets back to it on "Other Realities" and "Drummers Lament" and over-all its a pretty spooky record. The guy is definitely a head, and definitely a weird cat and I really dig where he took this ethereal midnight spaced lounge jazz stuff. Like Justen OBrien + Jake it quickly becomes a much heavier record than you had initially imagined... Toni, the gal vocalist is fabulously cool and lets notes go flat and plays it stoned natural realness. Like tripping with your middle aged neighbor after hes been through a divorce. Mature and sensitive but still pretty weird.... Most unusual and relaxed but twilight zone mix of smooth but not slick lounge jazzy sounds with off key at times vocal, female voice weaving through, cool organ that gets mystical, the opening track "Fear Of Flying: is particularly eerie. Like a soak in a surreal hot tub. Private pressing on Gargoyle records from Canada. Mentioned in Acid Archives.” - Museum of Canadian Music.

"“A perfect hot-tub sound here folks. This is a fully electric folkrock trip with a jammy westcoast feel, with flowing keyboard, jazzy moves and mixed male/female vocals and long instrumental passages played by great lubby pro-musicians. On the private Gargoyle label from mid-1970s Canada. Very obscure 2nd LP from Lewin, and quite different from his debut.” - Subliminal Sounds.

"In 1983, a man named Lewis recorded an album named LAmour, which was released on the unknown label R.A.W. And thats about all we know. The record itself is a delicate, whispered album, reflecting the way the artist himself -- spectral, movie star-like -- almost disappears into the grey of the cover. It should come as no surprise that it failed to shout loudly enough to be noticed, another private press album that sank without trace. The ingredients are simple: smooth synthesizers, feather-light piano, ethereal, occasionally inaudible vocals and the gentle plucking of acoustic guitars. But the effects are arresting: a spine-tingling, sombre album that echoes Springsteens Nebraska or Angelo Badalamentis atmospheric soundtracks. Later, Arthur Russell would grasp for something similar on the epochal World of Echo LP. LAmour is a true discovery of the blog age, uncovered in an Edmonton flea-market by collector Jon Murphy, passed on to private press fanatic Aaron Levin, shared on the internet and speculated over by lovers of curious LPs. Theres almost no information about Lewis or the album on the internet. Theres precious little on the sleeve: a dedication to Sports Illustrated supermodel Christie Brinkley, a photo credit for Ed Colver, the noted L.A. punk rock photographer, and credits for engineer Bob Kinsey and synth player Philip Lees.

"Earlier this year (2014), we released the mysterious, bewitching LAmour, a 1983 private press record thought to be the only release by one of musics true lost talents: Lewis. So lost, in fact, was Lewis, he eluded every effort to track him down. Scant details were known: just a series of possibly apocryphal stories about a sports car-driving Canadian with a model on his arm and a habit of skipping town when there were bills to be paid. Deciding that Lewis spider web-delicate songs demanded to be heard, we put the album out anyway, offering to present the due royalties to anyone who could prove they were Lewis. One sure thing was this: Lewis was a man of many names: Randall A. Wulff among them. Now we have either found another alias -- or perhaps even his real name -- on the sleeve of a completely unknown album. Sourced soon after the re-release of LAmour, Romantic Times is the 1985 follow-up to LAmour -- and its released as Lewis Baloue. The name may be slightly different, but this is absolutely our man: a familiar blond posing on the sleeve, a familiar, tortured voice pouring his heart out over languid synths and synthetic waltz beats. Remastered from a sealed, vinyl copy of the ultra-rare album, the album was discovered in the vaults of DJ and collector Kevin Sipreano Howes in Vancouver, BC. Its so rare that what is, at present, the only other known copy -- found in the same Calgary store where Aaron Levin discovered a batch of sealed copies of LAmour -- is presently soaring into quadruple digits on eBay. Even engineer Dan Lowe, credited for working on the album at Calgarys Thunder Road Studios, remembered little about the session other than that Lewis seemed to be under the influence. Yet the music is utterly captivating. The album further fleshes out the Lewis myth -- we see him pictured in that white suit with his famous white Mercedes and a private jet too; we hear him focussing more intently on matters of the heart, and appearing to unravel in the process. I felt like I was witnessing a full-blown exorcism of a phantom clad in the finest linen, writes filmmaker and historian Jack D. Fleischer in his brand new liner notes. This record went further [than LAmour]. It was a personal plea, of sorts. Something had gone wrong. Nerves were clearly exposed. It paints Lewis, then, as being more like a David Lynch character than even his debut did, exposing the darkness beneath the sheen." - Light in the Attic.

Title: All Over
Format: LP
Label: Editions Mego
Country: Austria
Price: $21.00
“Editions Mego is proud to present the first recordings by Edvard Graham Lewis released this century. Having made his name in legendary punk/experimental outfits Wire, Dome and He Said, Lewis has developed an exceptional voice with ceaseless exploration of a wide variety of musical forms. All Over is a song-based album that resides amongst the cracks between narrative and song, sound and music. Cloaked in an atmosphere of beauty and paranoia, All Over conjures the spirit of Wires experimental pop trajectory while simultaneously exploring a multitude of sonic possibilities. Gritty mechanical operations support Lewis wry human observations in a uniquely disturbing mélange of punk, industrial, techno and pop. A dream logic plays throughout All Over, courtesy of Lewis odd lyrical content being set with all manner of disorientating sound and rhythm. All tracks were written and composed between 2003-2013 in parallel with the works included on All Under. Several contributors generously collaborated at distance from L.A., Japan, Scotland, Italy, Germany, UK and Sweden, furthering this catchy excursion into the unstable grid of the 21st century. All Over is a major amalgamation of music, media, man and mind. Contributors: Howardamb (bartered tones, tracks 2,4,11); Andreas Karperyd (electronics, track 1); Linda Dahl (vocal, track 5); Jim Ascroft, Fabrizio Clemenza, and Giovanni Romano (vocal, track 5); P.T. Kirk (additional electronics, track 9); Jan Lundquist (lead vocal, track 12). Mastered by Russell Haswell. Cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering in Berlin.” - Editions Mego.

Title: All Under
Format: LP
Label: Editions Mego
Country: Austria
Price: $21.00
“All Under, the companion release to All Over compiles soundtracks to films, installations and a self-penned short story. This is familiar terrain for Edvard Graham Lewis, who, along with Bruce Gilbert, produced the early interactive audio-visual installation "MZUI" at Londons Waterloo Gallery in 1981. Since this period, Lewis has been involved in countless soundtracks to all manner of cultural artefacts. The haunting score to Gunilla Leanders 2003 short film All Under was improvised in real time with a sampler and FX processing and recorded onto mini disc. The results are a viscous ambience of swirls, feedback and distortion. This material was then adapted for an immersive three-screen installation of the same visual material which features combinations of six nude bodies (four men, two women) fighting and wrestling, filmed underwater. The soundtrack here crawls further in the depths as electronic phrases swim amongst a foreboding ambience. Both of these works encapsulate the same disembodied effect of the visual material as hovering, uncanny sound worlds seep into the listeners subconscious. "The Eel Wheeled" features Lewis reading one of his own bizarre stories underscored with a suitably disorienting soundtrack sourced from sound effects of the Prime Sounds SFX Library. This version was remixed by Thomas Öberg (member of Bob Hund and 27#11). "No Show Godot" concludes the set. A soundtrack to a "sky movie" (road movies be warned) completed in 2013. Coming out of the initial sub-aquatic environments of the opening works, "No Show Godot" takes us on a spiraling high before folding into a gritty, godly industrial mantra which comes along as a perfect means of tying up these two concurrent releases as a symmetrical whole. Track #3 is a remixed version by Thomas Öberg. Track 4: Pauline Svanerö (vocals), P.T. Kirk (additional drones). Mastered by Russell Haswell. Cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering in Berlin.” - Editions Mego.

Country: Japan
Price: $17.00
"John Mylotte (aka Sir Ashleigh Grove) is the leader of the ultra-mysterious cult group Metgumbnerbone, which also includes Richard and Philip Rupenus of The New Blockaders.This is a heretical two-part work, entitled "Our Demons 1 & 2", and was filmed on mini-DV cameras by Mylottes friends David Steans and Joseph Lewis. The films capture various ritualistic actions performed by ten masked individuals, somewhere in the blasted landscape of England. The films overflow with a warped humour, confusing the viewer as to the participants real intentions. The background music weaves an even more cultic atmosphere - not noise, but a kind of self-imagined trad folk. This version comes with an additional, stand-alone, remastered CD of the soundtrack. Only a small proportion of the soundtrack was used for the final cut of the film, so this is the only place where you can hear the full soundtrack. Highly recommended for all devotees of Metgumbnerbones uniquely eccentric sensibilities! Hardboard cover with tarot card prints by Joseph Lewis, and liner notes.

Ten tracks featuring a wide variety of sonic material which is subjected to Lewis unique approach to the sonic landscape. Field recordings, small sounds, samples, ambient pot holes, repetition, and giddy disorientation are all tactics deployed by Lewis. On entering these works we take a voyage through a series of audacious audio adventures, playful musical miniatures and choppy sonic seas. There is a human warmth to much of the material as Lewis expertly crafts musical matter from the living world. Ett is an exemplary investigation as Lewis reconfigures the sounds of life itself, from the delirious to the tender. A bold vision from a bright new talent.

"Following her acclaimed 2014 debut, Ett (EMEGO 190LP), and the subsequent Msuic EP on Peder Mannerfelts eponymous label (2014), Klara Lewis presents her second full-length, Too. Lewiss skill at sculpting the hermetic shines on Too as she twists her idiosyncratic vision into nine tracks of blurred rhythms and haunted backdrops. Too is a powerful statement in which the individual works tread a vast landscape as dour and aggressive elements rub shoulders with warmer, more optimistic works. Neither looking behind nor forward, these works spiral in a time of their own devising, presenting themselves as a most audacious theater for the ear. With a strong momentum developed from an organic outset the works move into a logic of their own, forming themselves as abstract landscapes, jittered rhythms, and even pop-like structures. Too is a deeply engaging display of sound and skewered sensibility that hovers on the cusp of reason and eludes the concrete. The results are Lewiss boldest statement to date. Written, produced, and mixed by Klara Lewis. Additional sound contributions on "Twist" and "Want" by Simon Fisher Turner. Mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at D&M, February 2016.

Title: The Letter
Format: LP
Label: Alter
Country: UK
Price: $21.00
"This is the first album by Liberez, a group formed by recording engineer John Hannon and Pete Wilkins in Southend. The project began life exploring a deconstruction of the traditional "band" form before expanding to a quartet with the addition of vocalist Nina Bosnic, and multi-instrumentalist Tom James Scott. Musically rooted in improvisation, the band sought a progression from the loosely described "noise rock" sound at their inception into more abstract territories. The tracks were recorded as a mixture of sessions at Hannons studio and external locations where fleeting incidents were captured on crude equipment such as mobile phones and portable cassette recorders. It was a piece of text written by Bosnic that gave birth to the initial concepts that formed the backbone of The Letter, and new ideas with regards to incorporating her voice were then created within the group. Bosnics vocals on this record bear little resemblance to traditional singing or melody, but instead use the inflection and cadence of speech to play with syntax. The repeated phrases and deconstructed sentences give the record an unusual and disconcerting atmosphere, acting as a sinister bedfellow to the sharp and broken sound of the guitar and heavily treated drums. While these instruments may represent rock n roll, Liberez are content to take influence from the likes of Robert Ashley rather than Chuck Berry. The Letter is a bold first statement from a group who are taking full advantage of what they have at their disposal, and proudly displays the vast frequency bandwidth that they now work within.

2003 release. “Alan Licht wears many hats. Over the years, hes been a curator of music as well as a tireless performer. And hes as well-known an author as he is a musician. Its one thing to have eclectic tastes; its another to make a practice of them. While Lichts earlier records have seamlessly melded his improvisational guitar playing with extended plundered sounds, A New York Minute takes things a few steps further. Instead of fusing the many sides of Licht into one monolithic mega-mix, this disc separates them into discrete compositions. Theres a lot more at stake here: the guitar pieces are showcased as guitar pieces and the plundered works are just that. The conceptual tendencies in Licht no longer hide behind his talent as a guitarist; likewise, the guitar pieces are no longer propped on hooky concepts that take our attention away from his fretwork. The good news is that both work: Licht is as strong a conceptual artist as he is a composer.” - XI.

Title: Object Lessons
Format: Picture Disc LP
Label: What The..?
Country: USA
Price: $24.00
"Object Lessons" and what of this ten-song collaboration between artist Lieberman and Yeh ? Perhaps the influenced musically discussed is somewhere starting between mutual love of various artistic and musical genres certainly -- sound poetry, psychedelic rock, Japanese scum noise, Japanese psychedelic rock, listy lists, but certainly embodies more the present-time sensibilities and whims of both between the two artists to combine for something perhaps neither strictly adhering to any imitation. Perhaps to this record appropriately lets step back to New York artist Justin Liebermans 2009 sculptural and multimedea work "The Correctors Custom Pre-Fab House" -- a description from the debuting gallery follows -- "The Correctors Custom Pre-Fab House is inspired by Robert Venturi and Denise Scott-Browns 1972 book, Learning From Las Vegas, which provides an in depth examination of what they call the decorated shed, a simple structure with elaborate signage. Using the urban sprawl of Las Vegas as an example, they posit this architectural style as a means to enrich the symbolic content of post-modern architecture. The Correctors Custom Pre-Fab House is a steel dwelling covered with a multitude of objects including a 1970s snowmobile, a life sized Jolly Green Giant, foam filled inflatable toys, an illuminated Fedex sign, and a 7 foot shark. Accompanying the house is a sculpture of the Corrector, a character inspired by the fictional figure, Nobusuke Tagomi, from Philip K Dicks novel, The Man in the High Castle. The novel follows Tagomi in a fictional future fifty years after Germany and Japan defeat the Allied forces in World War II. Liebermans interpretation of Taogmi is that of an avid collector of all things pop culture, whose collecting habits extend to the exterior of his home. Within the house, there is a computer equipped with a program that enables the Corrector to archive each object with an informational text about the objects history, which is then projected onto the adjacent wall of the gallery. Created in the style of a Katamari video game, the program features texts on each object taking various forms such as objective accounts, plagiarized product descriptions, aesthetic meditations, poetry, short fiction, satire, and prose. The program is available to play at www.thecorrector.org. These texts were then transformed into the record, Object Lessons, a musical collaboration between Justin Lieberman and C Spencer Yeh. The record is a spoken rendition of select object descriptions that were reworked into an ... musical format."

Title: Aksak
Format: LP
Label: Staubgold
Country: Germany
Price: $19.00
"Aksak is the exciting encounter of two exceptional musicians from different generations: legendary drummer Jaki Liebezeit and percussion wizard Holger Mertin (Drums and More). Liebezeit, born May 26, 1938, in Dresden, Germany, and best known as a founding member of Can, has been called "one of the few drummers to convincingly meld the funky and the cerebral." In the mid-1960s, he was part of Manfred Schoofs quintet, who were early exponents of European free jazz. He subsequently moved towards the new possibilities being opened by psychedelic music as a member of Can. His drumming was prominent in the bands sound, particularly in his much-admired contribution to the side-long "Halleluhwah" on Tago Mago. Liebezeit is renowned for his exceptional "metronome" style of playing; other members of Can have suggested that he sounds as though he is "half man, half machine." Mertin, born in 1977, is a multipercussionist and specialist in rhythmic traditions. He is involved in diverse transdisciplinary projects. Mertins playing is characterized by his spontaneous, melodious, and rhythmic style that is equally reflected in his individual instrumentarium. Mertin has collaborated with internationally renowned musicians and artists including Milan Sladek, Eberhard Kranemann (Kraftwerk), Martin Sasse (Sting, Martin Sasse Trio), Hayden Chisholm, Paul Shigihara (WDR Big Band Köln), Roland Peil (Die Fantastischen Vier), and Ali Haurand (European Jazz Ensemble). Like a zen master of the minimal, repetitive beat, Liebezeit -- famous for his hypnotic precision -- creates with only few sound colors the perfect matrix for Mertins unleashed playing on any imaginable percussion instrument. The result is a mighty, complex pulse -- the groove of a better world. On the basis of that musical matrix, sound magician Joseph Suchy has produced a jaw-dropping album that defies any categorization. Even if other instruments like violin, guitar, brass, and electronics sometimes seem to take the lead, the compelling pulse is always in the center of this swinging music. Liebezeit, Mertin, and Suchy have created a timeless masterpiece that, despite its complexity, always stays melodic and danceable. Thats how modernity sounds (and swings)! Jaki Liebezeit plays: world drum kit, hand cymbals, dholak, tambourine, bongos, and one-string percussion instrument. Holger Mertin plays: hang, hand cymbals, gongs, Modulationsscheiben, cymbals, tube sticks, frame drum, snare drums, melodic and metal percussion, helix bowl, tambourine, spoons, singing bowls, kalimba, marimbula, waterphone, K.G. sound sculpture, and overtone drum." - Staubgold.

Title: Kick The Habit
Format: DVD

Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Kick That Habit is a 1989 film by Peter Liechti, an audio-visual portrait of his native country, eastern Switzerland. The film collects samples from the land-and-soundscape, underscoring in the process the oft-ignored industrial underpinning of our latter-day culture. Also native to eastern Switzerland is Voice Crack, the everyday household electronics duo of Norbert Möslang and Andy Guhl, whose musical workings are explored as part of Liechtis vision. Whether clicking quietly and rhythmically or humming and shrieking at ear-splitting volume, their recycled electronics produce innovative sounds and provide an appropriate accompaniment in this cinematic search for the detritus of our culture, the lost and destroyed remains of the last century of progress. Kick That Habit is a short, tense film comprised of flashing images: footage of Voice Crack rehearsals and concerts is juxtaposed with visual shards of the fall and winter landscape of the area between Alpstein and the Bodensee. Utilizing color and black-and-white footage as well as combining the visual and the acoustic in an expression that subtly synthesizes the two, Liechti delineates a world of existence through sound and geography. Like the world the rest of us live in, its a world of beauty, quiet tragedy and the endless march forward. NTSC, 42 minutes, 4:3, mono, all-region." -Drag City

Title: Signers Suitcase: On the Road with Roman Signer
Format: DVD
Label: Drag City
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Signers Suitcase (aka Signers Koffer) is a kind of road movie across Europe -- from the Swiss Alps to eastern Poland, from Stromboli to Iceland. Always following the scenerys magically-charged contours, immersing yourself, letting yourself be infected, then traveling on. And what better traveling companion than the elusive artist Roman Signer? A quiet roommate -- but always with something unexpected up his sleeve. A road trip requires finding the right places. On the road through Signers Suitcase, Roman Signer brings his chosen spots alive using a variety of tricks from his kit bag, launching brilliantly simple operations with a combination of gunpowder, fuses, rubber boots, balloons, stools, small tables and other seemingly random items. All his endeavors result in a marvelous visual display full of poker-faced humor that has earned him a place on the cover of Gastr del Sols Upgrade & Afterlife, as well as the sometimes-title, Roman Signer: The Buster Keaton Of Art. Signers Suitcase is also a journey through a state of mind, a tightrope walk from fun to melancholy. Mental and physical risk promote stimulus of the senses -- and sudden crashes and abrupt changes of mood determine the rhythm and atmosphere of this cinematic journey. Peter Liechti, whose collaboration with Voice Crack, Kick That Habit, was just reissued by Drag City, saw a calling in Roman Signer: the preservation of work that so resolutely resists commercial evaluation...or at least the capturing of it photographically, so that in some way it would endure. The sensuality and simple clarity on the one hand as well as this unimpeachable, almost religious being on the other were the challenge of filming Roman Signers work. On the cinematic journey we made together, Roman Signer in a way dictated the route; the film improvises as we proceed on our way." - Drag CIty

Title: A Space Water Loop

Label: Subliminal Sounds
Country: Sweden
Price: $8.00
"New lower pricing. This is the second full-length release by Life On Earth!, the follow-up to the acclaimed 2007 debut Look!! There is Life On Earth!. The debut was like a journey past green summer hills and skipping lambs; a celebration of imperishable eternal beauty and a romantic observation of the world around us. Now, the telescope is turned inside-out. The focus is on the captain of the project, Dungens Mattias Gustavsson, and the gorgeous, ornate world of his own invention. Confusion and contradiction are found in the front stalls, visions of ecstasy next to battles with demons and defunct relationships. The drums are given more space, and a Hammond organ has found its way along the layered vocals and languorous string arrangements. But even though the sound has grown both harder and bigger, the album is a natural follow-up with equal parts sound experimentation, folk and classic psychedelic pop, based around acoustic guitar. Opening track "Listen" starts it all off with a flowery baroque flute intro, and then just unfolds and unfolds ever outward into stratospheric pop vocal harmonies, woozy effects, reverbed organs, backwards masking, all burning up at the end with some seriously druggy, acid-fried psychedelic guitar riffage. And thats just to start. Other members of Life On Earth! include members of The Works Martin Fogelström, Alexis Benson, and Johan Holmegard (also of Dungen) and Erik Lundin, plus at least 10 more guests. As with the debut, the cover paintings and collages were made by New York artists and Lights members Sophia Knapp and Wizard Smoke.

"Present-day San Francisco is a beautiful city but also a hyper-active, tech-grinding rat race. The money chase is on 24/7, the rats hustling for tiny morsels of cheese, praying for the day when a big hunk o cheddar falls from the sky. If youve lived in the city for a good while and are some creative type or working Joe or Jane, you can be overwhelmed by it all. Life Stinkss second album Youll Never Make It is a perfect portrait of that mind-frame. Feelings of anger, self-doubt and vindictiveness weave though a sonic template that shifts from a Flipper / Fang arms-a-swingin groove (as on the title track) to standout Velvet poppers (Anchor), Stooge-oid stomping (Sliding Down a Wire), and outright demented thuds (Im a Weed). And then just when you are ready to take out a few windows, Life Stinks slyly slides in a gentle number which reminds you that the band paints from a complete emotional palette. Youll Never Make It is a great followup to their 2013 debut, which was called album of the year by some yuks at Maximum Rocknroll and earned high praise at Raven Sings the Blues, Its Psychedelic Baby, Terminal Boredom and other places. Also like the first album, Youll Never Make It is produced by Kelley Stoltz and Mikey Young (Total Control)." - S-S.

Title: For A Reason
Format: LP
Label: Light In The Attic
Country: USA
Price: $26.00
LP version in Stoughton tip-on gatefold sleeve. "Political post-punk trio This Heat dissolved at a turbulent time in the UK. Margaret The Iron Lady Thatcher was in power, and her budget-cutting, ultra-conservative influence was felt strongly in -- among many other places -- the cultural melting pot of Brixton, South London, where This Heat had their origins. Dusting himself off after the collapse of the band in 1982, guitarist/vocalist Charles Bullen united with Julius Samuel to form Lifetones and embraced the sounds of the local West Indian community to fuse reggae flavor to the kind of propulsive, rhythmic, and experimental music made by This Heat. Deceit, This Heats 1981 album, had seen them work with David Cunningham, who had already helped mesh dub reggae with new wave pop on The Flying Lizards 1979 single, Money (Thats What I Want Want). Even so, For A Reason was a great leap, one that created a strange, unsettling mood as Bullens multi-tracked, chant-like vocals met dub beats and Krautrock-informed repetition. Where Deceit dealt with the nuclear threat, For A Reason was less reactionary, even quoting Bob Marley in its lyrics: you love the life you live, you live the life you love. Just six tracks and half an hour long, the album was recorded at Cold Storage studio and released on Bullens own Tone Of Life Records. It has become a sought-after collectors item that changes hands for hundreds of dollars a time. As a solo artist, Bullen was not prolific -- it was 15 years until, in 1998, he released Internal Clock under the name Circadian Rhythms -- but like the rest of his band, he has enjoyed a long, enriching career in unending pursuit of new sounds. Even though This Heat had no commercial success to follow up on, For A Reason was an album created with no intention of hitting the charts. Reissued on Light In The Attic, Lifetones single album retains a timeless quality and perhaps -- on tracks such as Good Side -- a futuristic sound that nobody else ever caught up to." - Light In the Attic.

Title: First Contact!
Format: CD

Country: USA
Price: $14.50
"First Contact! brings together highlights from nearly half a decade of recordings by an extended and ever changing superstar lineup of Chicago jazz, punk and rock musicians under the tutelage of cellist/ leader Fred Lonberg-Holm. What youll hear on this disc is an uproarious gathering of sonic jouissance featuring composer, songsmith and producer Jim ORourke, laptop guitar cum electronics-whiz Kevin Drumm, Jeb Bishop, Guillermo Gregorio, members of Town and Country, Pillow, TV Pow, and dozens of other bright lights from this citys creative gene pool on acoustic instruments, homemade sound concoctions and blistering digital and analog electronics as they explore elements of sonic growl, guttural hornspeak, and wistfully spaced out playing. But this isnt just some dandys hoity toity conceptual affair. Counterpoised somewhere between video game warfare and an explosive Arkestral moog freakout from many a Sun Ra episode, this superb collection begins surely enough teetering on the edge of a sonic collision that sets the pace for a grand, adventurous listening experience that just as easily blends the pointilism and angular attack of classic European free music with the raw, blissful emotional group flow of mid-1970s Henry Threadgill." - Locust

In tip-on sleeve with insert. ". . .we can make [enough] progress inside our heads and the heads of our friends to lay the foundations of an intergalactic life more meaningful than our earthbound condition . . ." - John Peel, International Times.

"First reissue; remastered sound. Includes full-color booklet containing informative liner notes by collectorJack D. Fleischer prepared from artist interviews, as well as full lyrics and rare photos. Mirroring the sentiment of the prescient UK radio legend in his Vibrations column for the International Times in the 70s, LightDreams leader Paul Marcano took one step beyond his intimate colleagues and chose to spread his ideals concerning peaceful outer-space colonization to all with open ears. Islands in Space, dotted with acoustic jams, backward guitars, lyrics alluding to the British progressive era, smoking-hot electric leads, synths galore, and the dreamiest of melodies, is both Marcanos love letter to the work of science-fiction author Gerard K. ONeill and the psych-tinged folk explorers who came before him such as McDonald and Giles. Originally privately issued in 1981 in an edition of 1,000 copies, Islands in Space explores space travel and cosmic ideology in a sci-fi psych odyssey and is filled with atmospheric, lysergic creations atop a hybrid of sounds from the cosmic psych/progressive folk/new age spectrum. Home-recorded (yet hi-fi), Islands in Space carries a singular quality, defies easy categorization, and has long been savored by collectors of otherworldly joys. This singular, beatific work now has another chance to shine from Earths surface to the outer reaches of the galaxy.

Drums and assorted FX pop in and out with the resolve of a finger quivering over the A-bomb button, drunk on power.

"Black Sweat Records present a reissue of Gaetano Liguori Collective Orchestras self-titled album, originally released in 1976. The Collective Orchestra was a visionary, short-living creative music collective led by Gaetano Liguori, a main protagonist of Italian free jazz since the early 70s. It was an important attempt to put together young musicians from the two main towns in Italy, and its respective leading figures, Milan and Rome. Previous attempts to set up anything similar were, in fact, either frustrated by rivalries between the various personalities or were destined to be one-off events. Liguoris vision is simply wonderful here - even bolder and more expressive than on his previous works for PDU - and the energy which he summons and transmits throughout is extraordinary. The near-telepathic interplay of the core set of Gaetano Liguori on piano, Roberto Bellatalla on double bass, Filippo Monico on drums, Guido Mazzon on trumpet, and young musicians Edoardo Ricci, Giancarlo Maurino and Massimo Urbani on soprano and alto saxophones, is given a richly expanded sound palette by the addition of Danilo Terenzi on trombone, Roberto Del Piano on Fender bass and Sandro Cesaroni on flute. Theres something really magical about the reciprocity that occurs when he plays these exceptional improvisers and the album still possesses a "sense of the new" feel that is as gripping as anything recorded by Italian ensembles around the same time. The sound is strong and freely exploratory, at a level thats completely fresh and very striking, and is handled here with a wonderful balance between playful arrangements and fierce improvisations. Filled with power and imagination and originally released in 1976 on PDU." - Black Sweat.

"Diario De Un Monstruo is an homage to the 1981 album Diary Of A Madman by Ozzy Osbourne (1981). It is another - and some might argue, inevitable - addition to the ongoing monster series of releases. To say Andrew Liless recording is a cover version of the original Ozzy album is far too simplistic and misleading. This recording adapts motifs and hooks from the original music but is in no way similar. It is a complex tapestry that is woven from many fine threads and at times, it is a confusing and incomprehensible monstrous interpretation of the classic album. Anyone expecting a hard rock LP will be sorely disappointed. Liles has been obsessed by the original album since its release 36 years ago and he has been collecting various LP pressings and ephemera associated with Diary Of A Madman for many years.

"Much of the music included in this set is exclusive to this vinyl version of Miscellany. Andrew Liles has compiled a comprehensive anthology including as much varied, interesting and unreleased material as possible. He spent many an afternoon sifting through piles of cassettes seeking the oldest and arguably most definitive pieces of music from literally hundreds of hours of tape. The earliest recordings on these discs date back to 1984. Find a New Husband was made on Liles fathers very cheap Amstrad tape-to-tape system. The tape machine ceased to work properly shortly thereafter. This track was the result or many hours of rewinding and re-playing and re-recording, and thus began Liles fascination, obsession and addiction with tape-manipulation, sound FX and recording techniques. Listening back to some of these works reminds us of the archaic and laborious fashion in which music used to be created and assembled. In hindsight the merits of working with tape compared to digital technologies seem to be the random nature of what would happen. Tape bleed, mishaps, the low-fi quality and errors seemed to give unique and often unpredictable results. Many of Andrew Liles early experimentations and accidental consequences are included in this collection. Also included are selections from his two self-released cassettes under the name Lividity. The Lividity tapes were given away to friends and sent as demos to assorted labels. Some 20 years later it is very doubtful that any of them exist other than the two remaining copies Andrew Liles has kept tucked away in some forgotten corner." -Vinyl On Demand

"The sound for this CD was recorded live in January 1982 at Galleri Mors Mössa in Gothenburg as a part of Serial Aktion. Serial aktion was the first piece I did that was based on variations wthin a serial, repetitiv form and during the 80´s was followed by more exhibitions and performances with the same theme. During the 48 hours that the performance lasted I markd my presence in time and space by firing three pistol shots at three targets at three given points in time (at 0 hours, at 24 hours and at 48 hours). The sounds of these shots and all other sounds in the gallery were recorded on a 60-minute cassette tape, which was immediately played and recorded together with all the other sounds on another tape recorder. In that way the 48th and last tape contained all the sounds that had occurred in the gallery during the entire performance, layer upon layer, distorted and re-formed through time and space and the natural wear and tear on the cassette tape. My actions were determined by the tape being played, that is, by what I did the hour and hours before. As with the sound these actions grew, hour by hour, into a more complex and layered form." - Firework Edition.

On their debut album New Atlantis (subtitled Cosmic Music Experience), they had become the acoustic trio Limbus 3, and had broken out beyond free-jazz, enthused chaos and delirium into a weird ethnic music concoction, and naturally with overtly uncompromising results." - Steven & Alan Freeman (Crack In The Cosmic Egg). Edition of 500 copies. Been 4-5 years since weve had this.. Highly recommended!

"Dark Entries is proud to present the debut album of contemporary British band LINEA ASPERA. Linea Aspera is the London duo of RYAN AMBRIDGE (Synths/Programming) and ALISON LEWIS (Vocals/Synths). They began the project in November 2011, technically drawing inspiration from electronic music from the early 1980s. Within the duo, Alison writes and performs all vocal elements, while Ryan is responsible for the writing and performing of the electronics, as well as recording and mixing of the final recordings. For their debut album they utilized small, simple analog synthesizer set up: Roland SH-09, Roland Juno 6, Vermona DRM MKiii, Korg Poly 800 and Analogue Solutions Semblance. Linea Asperas sound includes clear influences from early electronic body music, classic synth-pop and, in some instances, industrial and noise. Lyrically the band incorporates the sciences of osteology, neuroscience, and anthropology weaving a new medical language around themes of desire, despair and renewal. Linea Aspera serve up an icebox of dark doom riding on Alisons powerful vocals with a soft but sharp touch. All songs have been mastered for vinyl by GEORGE HORN at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. Each LP is housed in a specially designed jacket by DOVILE SHURPO and includes a full sized insert of all lyrics." - Dark Entries.

"250 copies edition. 1981 Unreleased Recordings. It includes a beautiful handmade book and two postcards. “Last night, after the unique “bis” by Linea Vienesa –unique mainly due to the lack of repertoire than of applause-, the handsome Brummell whispered in Baudelaire’s ear while he was removing his mythical and delicate gloves: “they are, how can I say?, really peculiar your friends, “darling””. That is how Tomás Cuesta ended his review about the first rock concert by Línea Vienesa, in the newspaper ABC on July the 8th 1981. Two days before, they had done their presentation in the Golden Village in Madrid. Ramón G. del Pomar wanted to set up a rock band. He played the guitar. He had already got in touch with a bass player, Patricia Álvarez de Lorenzana, but he needed a singer and a keyboard player. He met Mavi Margarida in some night party in Madrid, and he was fascinated by her lips painted in blue, matching her raincoat. “Would you like to sing?” he asked her. Mavi was studying in the school of the dancer Antonio Llopis, “Teatro de la Danza”, so she told him “if you want, we can try”. Hired. Then Mavi brought in Ricardo Llorca, a piano student in the Real Conservatorio de Música de Madrid. It was in the winter of 1981 when they entered Mario del Castillo’s rehearsal premises, with a rented synthesizer, a drum machine Körg, a guitar Gibson (which had belonged to Pete Townshend), a bass Hoffner and a pair of microphones. The cinema producer Francisco Hoyos was in charge of the expenses. “The music by Línea Vienesa lies in so many poles that the links would be too long. We just have to focus on the use of the drum machine, its walks on the Renaissance music which, from time to time, is sung in German (although it is not very understandable) and which is, in the end, music made to entertain as well as to listen to it carefully” José Manuel Costa. Newspaper El País, July 10th 1981. The group was not created according to a specific concept. Songs began to arise spontaneously: a guitar riff here, a synthetizer melody there, now a syncopated rhythm and a powerful bass. Many hours of rehearsal. A poem by a friend who was musicalizing, a song compounded in the car during a traffic jam, a modernized “copla” in their parents’ home piano, and an interest towards the aesthetics that all of them shared. Up to that moment, any Spanish music group had not used a drum machine to play pop." - Domestica

“Gatefold LP version. Steve Linnegar was an accomplished songwriter, musician, painter and martial arts disciple. A legendary figure from the South African 60s-70s underground music scene, the "hippie king of Cape Town" formed the Snakeshed band in the 70s along with top guitar-player Martin Kopelowitz and keyboardist/producer Peter Hubner. Refusing offers from some record labels who insisted they should go "commercial," they decided to record and release their first album, Classic Epics, all by themselves. Released in 1982 on their own private label, this record is one of the South African prog/psych crown jewels. Features layers of acoustic/electric guitars, Gilmour-alike guitar solos, ultra-melodic vocals, effects, and cool Tao-inspired lyrics. Culminates in the haunting 14-minute long "Desert." Remastered from the original tapes for the first time. Includes an insert with rare photos and liner notes by Aaron Milenski (Acid Archives).”- Guerssen.

Format: LP
Label: Superior Viaduct
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"Prior to forming Liquid Liquid in 1981, the band members were in two other groups: Liquid Idiot and Idiot Orchestra. While these ensembles sounded more experimental than groove-oriented, the beginnings of Liquid Liquids spatial/conceptual framework can be heard here. Liquid Idiot started at Rutgers University in the late 70s and soon relocated to NYC where they performed at various lofts and clubs including Tier 3, Mudd Club, and CBGB. The band even encouraged audience members to bring their own instruments to their early shows. Idiot Orchestra was an offshoot that included a dozen or more players (clarinet, sax, trumpet, violin, cello, synth, bass, marimba, and drums) resembling a no wave version of Raymond Scotts big band. As musician and artist Richard McGuire recalls, We werent trying to sound like anyone. We werent imitating anyone. We were just playing. I keep using "outsider art" as a reference to what we were doing. None of it was made for a market; it wasnt made with any intention other than the enjoyment of making it. This split archival LP collects two rare 7-inches from 1978 and 1980, both of which were originally pressed in hyper-limited editions and self-released by the bands. The package also features a fanzine of ephemera, rare photos and new interview with McGuire." - Superior Viaduct.

"Liquid Liquid emerged from New York Citys vibrant Downtown scene in 1981. Formed by drummer Scott Hartley, bassist Richard McGuire, vocalist Sal Principato, and marimba player Dennis Young, the group cut their teeth in underground clubs and street art circles before solidifying their trailblazing style -- a fusion of irresistible basslines, junkyard percussion, and urgent, free-flowing lyrics. Their three EPs, all originally released on legendary 99 Records, would heavily influence dance-oriented indie rock of the early aughts (LCD Soundsystem, DFA Records, et al.). Liquid Liquid continued toward dance-floor perfection with their third EP. 1983s Optimo features the bands best-known songs and remains a high water mark for post-punk aficionados. The title track positively erupts when the bass enters, forcing even the stiffest person in the room to move. While it would be an understatement to say that Cavern may sound familiar (due to its gross sampling in Grandmaster Melle Mels White Lines), Liquid Liquid were indeed the originators of this iconic New York riff." - Superior Viaduct.

Successive Reflexes picks up where the previous EP leaves off with Lock Groove, a slow-paced deconstruction of Fela Kuti and Can that shows how quickly the band was able to capture their stripped-down approach in the studio. Push drives forward with unapologetic funk, yet still sounds utterly unique.

"From the small town of Buckingham, 60 miles north of London, Liquid Stone was a four piece band that was formed by Ronni, Mick and Muz in the mid Seventies . Various line-ups centred around the key member, Ronni Sunderland (vocals and rhythm guitar) and Mick Prod (backing vocals and lead guitar) but it reached the pinnicle of its career in May 1980 with Ian (Muz) Murray on Bass (also vocals) and Ian (Tanner) Tansley on drums . After supporting the UK Subs at Friars in Aylesbury, the Subs were so impressed they asked Liquid Stone to accompany them on their Brand New Age tour of the UK and in May 1980 the two bands toured the country playing to audiences from St Austell to Hull and culminating in a gig at the famous Rainbow Theatre in London. The band were well known for their energetic and professional performances. Always a crowd pleaser, Liquid Stone decided to cut their one and only single, Here Comes the Weekend in 1979. All still teenagers at the time the band made their way North to Red Ball Studios in Market Drayton to lay down the tracks but it wasnt until 1981 that the single was formally released. This didnt stop the band topping the offical Oi! charts in 1980 with a live recording of the tracks. Liquid Stone continued to rock clubs and venues around London for the next couple of years and all the members are still playing today." - Sing Sing.

"Little Claw was born in Detroit, Michigan during the Great Eastern Seaboard blackout of 2003. Having nothing to do, nowhere to go, Heath Heemsbergen and Kilynn Lunsford began playing their acoustic guitars and singing into the darkness. An auspicious beginning to be sure. Even now, Little Claw are still strumming and screaming into the void. Formed originally with Jamie Easter from the Piranhas on drums, the band played a string of shows, starting with their debut performance with legendary Ohio art-punks the Bizarros, which then led to the recording of the first Little Claw LP with Warn Defever (His Name Is Alive) The album was released by Ypsilanti records in 2005. Jamie left the band in the summer of 2005 and after one show as a duo, Hendrik Deherder joined up on the drums. A second LP was recorded with Matthew Smith (Outrageous Cherry) in his Hamtramck living room mid-2006 and was subsequently released by Thurston Moores Ecstatic Peace label in 2007. Later that year, there was a release of a split 7" single with Michael Yonkers on X! records. Little Claws move from the urban nightmare of Detroit to the more subtle cloudy terrors of Portland, Oregon prompted some more augmentations to the line-up: Adam Svenson (of Seattle improv band Du Hexen Hase) took over the caveman beat on the drums, freeing up Henrik to bang the synth and add additional percussion. On the road and on recordings, the Little Claw sound is graced by the touch of Toledo native, Damon Sturdivant (Puffy Areolas, Tyvek) on additional percussion and synth." "But what do they sound like anyway? They sounded like the greatest godammned fucking band on the planet the time we saw em. Two minimalist drummers, a guitar dude with a nice underhook rhythm rip and a girl with a badass no wave slather tongue tearing hell out of her slide guitar given half the chance.

Title: Nirvanating Nervesounds
Format: LP

Country: Spain
Price: $27.00
"Psychedelic hard rock featuring the explosive fuzz-wah guitar of Peter Illingworth (ex-David John & The Mood). Little Free Rock were an underground British power trio that evolved from heavy-mod-psych band Purple Haze. In 1969, the band released their only album, on Transatlantic Records. A rather disappointing effort for the band and their fans, as the ultra-clean production did not show the real, powerful sound of the power trio. Nirvanating Nervesounds collects sessions for an aborted second album from 1971, produced by Robert Stigwood, plus tracks from their early incarnation as Purple Haze, taken from an ultra-rare demo acetate from 1969. The 71 tracks were recorded just after the band incorporated an African percussionist, "Lord" Eric Carboo, into their line-up, and following the replacement of original member Frank Newbold with ex-Killing Floor bass player John Taylor. This new line-up shines on tracks like the terrific psych-funk cut "Money On Your Mind," full of drum breaks and frenzied wah-wah guitar. The 69 recordings are taken from the only known copy of a demo acetate recorded in 1969, when the band had just changed their name from Purple Haze to Little Free Rock. Featuring some songs that were later re-recorded and included on the Transatlantic album, appearing here in a superior, raw form. This is a killer find for anyone into late 60s British mod-psych. A fuzzed-out power trio that will surprise anyone into obscure psych/freakbeat acts like Adams Recital, Five Day Rain, The Attack... For many people, the recordings included here are the best thing Little Free Rock ever did and show how their first album shouldve really sounded. Most of these tracks were previously released on CD as Time Is of No Consequence in 1991, but they appear here in a newly remastered, superior form, most noticeable on the acetate tracks (no surface noise here!). Remastered sound. Four-page insert with detailed liner notes by Nigel Cross (Shagrat Records) and Klemen Breznikar (Its Psychedelic Baby) plus rare photos." - Sommor.

Wolf is also a true outsider, whose wrenching soulfulness and fire-brained intensity have been captured in a breadcrumb trail of confounding and intentionally obscure self-released records. 

In the late 1960s Wolf -- born James Pobiega in 1950 -- was already a saxophone wailing fixture at the legendary Chicago hangout, Maxwell Street Market. By the mid-1980s he released nearly three dozen 45s. Those singles are sprawling journeys into Wolfs world vision, as told through his gravelly voice and an array of instruments in styles and influences not limited to: American Indian, Polish and gypsy folk musics, Voodoo, vocal chants, blues, calypso and avant jazz. Often, its all filtered through overdubbed abstraction.

Wolf issued two LPs collecting some of those singles -- The Guardian (1982) and Cool Truth (1985) -- both now reissued by Family Vineyard.

Cool Truth is a damaged, hallucinatory journey that radiates from a Chicago blues core. Performing most, if not all, the instruments himself -- sax, guitar, harmonica, marimba, etc. -- Wolf speaks in tongues, hollers and serenades. The 12 songs recorded between 1979 and 1983 alternate between Sun Ra-style orchestration and primitive forms to more traditional blues takes.

This reissue features replicated LP jackets, with Wolfs original transcendent liner notes, and labels bearing the Solidarity Solidarnosc Records name; never before seen photos; new essay by ethnomusicologist/ Canary Records head Ian Nagoski; and download coupon. Timothy Stollenwerk remastered the audio as sourced from multiple copies of the records as the master tapes were destroyed in a fire.” - Family Vineyard.

Title: Past And Future
Format: LP
Label: Domestica
Country: Spain
Price: $29.00
"Little Nemo was born in 1983 as the result of the musical encounter between Olivier Champeau and Vincent Gallo in the Paris area. The name stems from Windsor McCays comic strip, dating back to the early 20th century and telling the oniric adventures of a little boy during his sleep. That sets the tone for the many arty references in the groups history. The duet asserts this psychedelic ascent while quoting Syd Barretts Pink Floyd as their influence. Their music mixing keyboards (mainly Olivier), a drum machine and guitar/bass by Vincent is influenced by the new wave of Cure and Joy Division, as well as by the French groups Taxi Girl and Marquis de Sade.
PAST & FUTURE was originally self-produced and self-distributed by the band on his own label Artefact, as a limited edition of 500 cassettes, released in June 1987. It was sold out in a few months. The tape is meant to be conceptual.
Out on vinyl for the very first time, these original recordings were produced by the band on a 4-track cassette deck in 86-87, except track A2, recorded on a 8-track tape recorder at 8PM Studio in Lyon (march 87)." - Domestica.

"One more top mysterious trace from the Little Skull legacy: Dean Browns album Ubique (i.e. "everywhere" in Latin) marks the passing of time and people. This sense of loss is very present though the whole record; not getting around to saying the things we meant to say and making sense of the leftovers. Screaming calmly, Dean Browns Little Skull has shrunk, even more, until his head is almost just sore meat - this music sounds like it was made to soothe that inflammation. Currently living in the UK, Little Skull is Deans long running solo project. He plays all of instruments, even if it sounds like he is barely touching them and yet, his obscure personal fingerprints are all over the place. His instinctive spontaneous playing finds ways to make them glow and fizz and ripple. The very complicated hand-made cover is astonishing. It incorporates religious imagery and patron saints expanding in space and creating a three-dimensional architecture filled with mysterious presences. Dean Brown is a New Zealander from Hamilton. A joke city to much of the rest of New Zealand, but its feral mongrel out-of-it-ness is well known to those that have lived there. Dean coped with Hamilton through his bands Negative Eh and Nova Scotia and then buggered off to other cities and other countries. After several privately produced lathe-cut editions and a sold-out LP on Elica, Ubique is reissued here on LP in a one-time-only pressing limited to 250 copies." - Planam.

Title: Bringing Home the Bait
Format: LP
Label: Desire
Country: France
Price: $25.00
"Comes on grey-colored vinyl. The unholy trinity of Live Skull/Swans/Sonic Youth dominated New Yorks so-called noise scene throughout most of the 1980s, but Live Skull was the component in that musical equation that was, first and foremost, always about the songs. Years before the noisy-catchy anthems of Daydream Nation, Live Skull was pioneering their own radical fusion of concisely constructed songwriting feeding off the seductive potential of chaos, transforming dissonance into something alluring while pushing the boundaries of what defined a song. Many of the bands most potent and perverse musical explorations began to take shape on their second record (and first full-length album), Bringing Home the Bait, recorded in 1984 and originally released in 1985 on the Homestead label. Bringing Home the Bait extends the approaches found on Live Skulls first EP, but the feel here is even harsher, more complex and confrontational. Using the most traditional of rock instrumentation -- two conventionally-tuned guitars, bass and drums -- Mark C., Tom Paine, Marnie Greenholz, and James Lo gleefully throw themselves into the business of subverting traditional rock forms, and the result is an intensely eccentric, nearly unclassifiable record that has been called, among other things, "The Best Noise Rock Post Punk New Wave No Wave Experimental Indie Emo Goth Album Ever." Make no mistake: BHTB can be a tough listen, but its also an immensely rewarding one. The UK paper Sounds gave the record a five-star review, stating "Live Skull grab accepted practice by the throat and twist it to their own perverted ends," while Pulsebeat gushed, "Devastating, intoxicating noise, practically unparalleled among this years record releases." Spin magazine appreciated the records "highly distinctive dark, slow and dedicated sound," while the New York Times Robert Palmer, writing for New Look magazine, famously declared: "The most startlingly original array of guitar sounds and approaches since Jimi Hendrix. They make guitars do things youve never imagined." - Desire.

"On blue vinyl. Formed in 1982 by guitarists Mark C. and Tom Paine with Marnie Greenholz on bass and James Lo on drums, Live Skull is considered by many aficionados to be the quintessential New York noise band. Together with Sonic Youth and Swans, Live Skull defined the term "noise rock" in the 1980s, spearheading the post-no wave underground music scene in NYC with a series of legendary live performances and eight groundbreaking records released over the course of that decade. Often brutal and yet strangely seductive, each of these classic records creates hooks out of the most unlikely, seemingly disruptive elements, subverting traditional rock forms in previously unheard ways that became an undeniable (albeit often unacknowledged) influence on many of their contemporaries. Live Skull broke up in 1989, just within sight of that magical moment when the sort of music they pioneered began to finally break through, but the bands recorded output reminds us that Live Skull got there first. This is the record that started it all, Live Skulls first EP. A gloriously sprawling collection of deep, dark grooves and insidiously entwined guitars, the Village Voice rightly described the EP as "classic post-punk" and "the best introduction to New Yorks guitar explorers." The East Village Eye proclaimed it "one of the best-sounding records to come out of any New York band past or present." The New York Times put the EP on their short list of the best five records of 1984, declaring, "A few contemporary bands are making music as a deliberate antidote to the burbling synthesizers, polite crooning and polished gloss of todays well-fed pop mainstream. New Yorks Live Skull, Sonic Youth and Swans... are making the sort of music rocks early opponents must have feared most, the music of their nightmares." Out of print for far too many years, this 30th anniversary reissue of Live Skulls first EP is now available on limited edition vinyl, complete with a lavish booklet including extensive liner notes by founding members Tom Paine and Mark C., and eight extremely rare bonus tracks (available with the download code included with the vinyl version). This is the first release in Desires Live Skull project, an ambitious, eight-title series of reissues of the entire Live Skull catalog, personally overseen by Mark C. and Tom Paine." -Desire.

Price: $18.00
"Dark Entires is honored to reissue the long out of print debut album Elevator to Eden by LIVES OF ANGELS. Lives of Angels was the brainchild of GERALD OCONNELL from London, England. In 1974 he worked at CBS studios mastering recordings from tape to disc. By 1977 he joined his first band MYSTERY PLANE, led by school mate Mark Harvey and later joined by his soon-to-be wife Catherine. Gerald branched off in 1980 forming Lives of Angels as an outlet for his own compositions. He recorded, produced and played all of the instruments on "Elevator to Eden" between 1981 and 1983, using a primitive set up of drum machines, one keyboard, guitar and a tape echo. Influenced by the Krautrock sounds of Neu! and Amon Duul II as well as US psychedelic rock, Lives of Angles crafted their own unique post-punk sound. Elevator to Eden was originally released in 1983 on cassette by Color Tape Records, the label started by Gary Ramon of Modern Art. Then in 1986 Fire Records remixed and re-released the album on vinyl but the band was not happy with the mixes. This reissue features the original 4-track cassette mixes of Elevator To Eden on vinyl for the first time ever. The LP includes 9 songs featured on the original Color Tapes release. All songs have been remastered for vinyl by GEORGE HORN at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley directly from the original master tapes. Each LP comes with unreleased photos, original artwork and a lyrics for all songs." - Dark Entries.

"Regarded as the link between Italian acid folk, Library music and Krautrock, LIVING MUSIC was a collective of Italian Musicians, artists and poets active in the counterculture and student movement of Rome in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Taking their name and concept from the New York experimental theatre group Living Theatre husband and wife duo UMBERTO SANTUCCI (jazz critic, graphic designer (Brainticket) and photographer, library composer) and GIANFRANCA MONTEDORO (Jazz and rock singer, member of Alessandroni Vocal group, Brainticket) hosted improvisational sessions at their home where they explored the concepts of communal expression through music and poetry. These experiments would lead to a recording session in which they set their psychedelic compostions to the poetry of Beat poet Allen Ginsberg. Their sole 1971 album for RCAs Italys experimental imprint Free Dimension is a phenomenal psychedelic excursion into acid folk, Tibetan chants, Indian drones, and avant-jazz (Featuring Umbertos brother and Italian jazz legend Cicci Santucci) all centered around the powerful voice of Gianfranca Montedoro. It has since become a highly sort after recording for folk and progressive collectors." -Roundtable.

"Captains log, stardate 10.3.12: The Lloyd Pack 7" ep is finally realized. We had picked up a distress signal some weeks back, the call letters unclear, but seemingly emitted from a slow & hostile planet known only as URP. The data transcribed mentioned project (Lloyd Pack), title, (Know Your Lloyd Pack), participants (Russell Walker, Letha Rodman Melchior, Dan Melchior) & facilitator (Siltbreeze). Upon listening to contents, our forward team-though eager albeit without much depth-quickly attempted a single comparison to former Siltbreeze inhabitants, the Shadow Ring regarding sound & style. However, Chief Science Officer Roland Woodbe dismissed this as naive & noted the possibility of an Excalbian conspiracy in such a hasty summation. Woodbe elaborated a deeper analogy, finding in his historical dissection hints to century old former galactic explorers such as Collective Horizontal, 49 Americans & No Half Measures (for example). When presented with the compositions of Lloyd Pack myself I found CSO Woodbes comprehension to be most evolved. That said, the Know Your Lloyd Pack ep occupies its own unique aural atmosphere too. Its drollery is of the highest Anglo-Saxon order, its ambience as crisp as a Gloustershire perry. Overall I have found its essence most logical and as any species this side of 40 Eradani A is aware, with only 300 pressed, its shelf life is surely not long for the galaxy.

"The Lloyd Pack is a project band of transplanted Englishman Dan Melchior. The Lloyd Pack A Tribute (AMI047) initially emerged from a conversation Melchior had with Graham Lambkin (Shadow Ring, Kye Records) about the prospect of doing a Faux African record. For two British-expats living in the U.S. in the twenty-first century, this LP offers a peculiarly whimsical variation on the Faux African, infusing lo-fi tribal rhythms with post-punk dance in the spirit of early Adam Ant, Fun Boy Three and the Fall. If one were to imagine adding Ivor Cutler to this British-mix, it might approach what Melchior delivers on this LP. And for the record, Cutler is a Scot. Lambkin offered some vocal components, alongside a large cast (including the late Letha Rodman-Melchior, Angela Sawyer aka Preggy Peggy, Gnarlos, Nick Hennies, Le Ann Baca Bartlett, and Johnny Brewton), all of whom chimed in on the recording process. Dan Melchior has put out dozens of records in the last decade under multiple guises including the Broke Review, Dan Melchior und Das Menace, under his own name and in collaboration with artists as diverse Billy Childish, Holly Golightly, Russell Walker, The Spits etc., and has emerged as one of the most unique voices in American outsider rock and experimental music." - Amish.

Title: Serpentement
Format: LP
Label: Bimbo Tower
Country: France
Price: $20.00
"The solitary project of Thomas Bonvalet initially focused on the nylon string guitar, taking short, dynamic and abrupt forms and limiting itself exclusively to the acoustic possibilities of the instrument. A radical posture, it constantly threatened to put itself at an impasse, seeing itself forced into metamorphosis and movement. The instrument thus became less and less identifiable. At the periphery it absorbed the sound of objects (metronome, tuning forks...) deviating from their common usage, integrating the breath and the sounds rising from the instrumental gesture, splitting up to reveal a new fleeting form. Amplification has also progressively taken an essential part in this new instrumentarium/organism. However, there remains this same subterranean voice, the consideration of detail and tension, the seeking of possible points of sudden revelation. “Serpentement” is the fourth recording of "locelle mare" and was recorded by Adrian Riffo, in the Protestant temple of Bergerac (France), in november 2011. Instruments: mechanical metronome with bell, harmonica reeds, six string banjo, amps, microphones, feet tapping, hand clapping, six string ukulele, tuning forks, timer, mouth organ, Harmonicas, concertina, dry poppy pods ,whistlings,... Thomas Bonvalet, (born October, 1977) lives in Alpedrete, Spain. Guitar player of the band "Cheval de frise" between 1998 and 2004, he made is first solo show under the name of l’ocelle mare in September 2005.

An aural journey from the source of the river, in the high peak area of the Adirondacks, downstream to the Lower Bay and the Atlantic Ocean; Annea Lockwood traces the course of the Hudson through on-site recordings of its flow at 15 separate locations. Annea Lockwood has recorded rivers in many countries to explore the special state of mind and body which the sounds of moving water create when one listens intently to the complex mesh of rhythms and pitches. The listener will find that each stretch of the Hudson has its own sonic texture, formed by the terrain, varying according to the weather, the season and downstream, the human environment whose sounds are intimately woven into the rivers sounds." - Lovely Music.

Title: Breaking the Surface
Format: CD
Label: Lovely Music
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"1999 release. Two of Annea Lockwoods dramatic works dealing with issues of spiritual wholeness. Duende (1997), about shamanic transformation, is written with and performed by Thomas Buckner. Lockwood selected sounds which reminded her of certain vocal transformations heard in recordings of shamanic ceremonies. In such singing, changes in the voice mirror and also help to bring about changes in the singers mind and awareness. Within an improvisational framework, Buckner explores the possibility of change of state through such transformations, moving through three stages: preparation, a first flight, and a final flight, in which he moves beyond the self he knows. Thus, Duende is a not a prepared, performed work, but a vehicle for experience. Buckner is partnered by a tape drawn from the sounds of the cuica (an African and South American instrument), a large glass gong and other glass sounds, wind, a Cameroonian rattle, a kea (New Zealand mountain parrot), and a bullroarer. Delta Run (1979-81) is an expression of the thoughts and experiences of a sculptor who talked with Lockwood just over a day before he died in 1979, aged thirty. He knew that he was dying and wanted to communicate his perceptions of death as something "only natural, you know - now is my time", seeing this piece as a form of continuing creativity now that sculpture was out of reach. Interwoven with his voice are wind, water, ambient sounds from the hospice where they talked, and some of the ordinary sounds of daily living, embodying the sense that dying is a part of living, not separate from it, and that in dying we are incorporated back into the elements from which we emanate." - Lovely Music.

"Annea Lockwood (b. 1939, New Zealand) has been an active member of the sound art world for over 50 years. Known prominently for her Glass Concerts, exploring the sonic temperaments of glass; her Piano Transplants, a performance piece where a piano is lit on fire or partially buried; and Sound Maps, detailed audio studies of rivers in the United States. She has received international recognition for her unique relationship with sound. Lockwood has taught at a number of universities, most notably at Vassar in New York, where she taught since 1982. Although recently retired, she is still constantly engaged in her art, recording and composing from the world around her.
Ground Of Being presents four pieces ranging from 1996 to 2013. Unlike her Sound Map albums, which often work environmentally (as a window fixed in a room), Ground Of Being tells a more detailed story. A moving series of memories, or a collection of different dreams.
Annea has a keen connection with the resonances of the Earth; whether it be the detail of water sloshing, the reverberation of a voice in a room, or that of acoustical instruments. With these natural resonances in her palette, a unification of all sounds is formed. For example, the piece “Dusk” (2011) juxtaposes recordings from vents on the bottom of the ocean together with transposed bat calls. Additionally, on Lockwoods composition “Ear-Walking Woman” (1996), performed here by Lois Svard (Lovely Music, Ltd.) – prepared piano acts as a microcosm of the world of sound. A box with treated strings; a smaller reflection, yes. Yet, still limitless in its ability to produce frequencies and dynamics.
The notion of sound as an extension of the physical realm is brought to mind. The aural temper of water, of wood, of rocks, of wind…Lockwood brings all into focus for our consideration.

1998 release. "This is not an album of environmental sound for relaxation, though listening to it might have a calming effect. Nor is it sonic nostalgia for a tame or even cute nature. Some of these sounds (especially if played loudly on speakers with good bass response) can bite!" --Warren Burt. "World Rhythms" originated as a ten-channel live improvisation in which the audience was surrounded by ten loudspeakers. The recorded sounds include volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, radio waves, geysers and pools, and tree frogs. These sounds are a physical manifestation of energies which shape us and our environment constantly, energies of which we are not always aware, but which powerfully influence and interact with the rhythms of our bodies. "i come out of your sleep" follows a tradition of sound poetry, or text-sound, begun in part by Kurt Schwitters Ursonate and expanded by composers such as John Cage, Charles Amirkhanian, and Jackson Mac Low. The piece is based on the speech vowels in Louise Bogans poem, "Little Lobelia." The vowels are whispered and elongated; their shapes become breathed melodic arcs and tones, and that breathing becomes the core of a stylized meditation.” - XI.

Title: In the Doorway of the Dawn: The Chronicle of a Song, Vol. 1&2, 1972-2012
Format: Double CD
Label: Chapter Music
Country: Australia
Price: $16.00
"Across two discs, In the Doorway of the Dawn presents almost 40 years of previously-unheard songwriting from Richard Lockwood, renowned as the driving force behind early 70s Sydney folk-psych icons Tully, and for his work with the similarly revered Extradition. In the process of working with Richard on the reissue of Tullys landmark recordings Chapter discovered that the very private songwriter had never stopped recording after the end of his much-loved band -- only that he had lost interest in making his beautiful, transcendental music available to others. It took some persuading for Richard to agree to a solo compilation, but In the Doorway of the Dawn justifies the effort beyond measure. Mostly recorded to cassette four-track, and played impeccably on every imaginable instrument by Richard himself, In the Doorway of the Dawn reveals a singular songwriter with an unswerving focus. Of the 33 songs presented here, virtually all are written in tribute to spiritual master Meher Baba, whom Richard discovered in the late 60s and whose influence wholly transfigured the remainder of his life. Suffused in equal parts with serenity and yearning, Richards songs have a grace that is almost unequalled. Of special note are the settings Richard recorded of works by Australian poet Francis Brabazon, named "the poet of the age" by Meher Baba. Over the course of decades, Richard interpreted many Brabazon poems, of which five are presented here. The span of these recordings begins with live solo performances in 1972 (just after Tully had disbanded and Richard had joined fellow adventurers Tamam Shud) and continues right up until late last decade, with home recordings made by Richard in Melbourne. For 40 years, Richard wrote songs that could have been classics. But he was content merely to write them, sing them, sometimes record them, offer them to his Beloved Meher and then put them away in a box of cassettes in his cupboard. Complete with extensive liner notes, lyrics and photos, In the Doorway of the Dawn is a revelation, the lifes work of a rare talent, even rarer for his lack of concern with public recognition." - Chapter Music.

Title: Youll Be Safe Forever
Format: LP
Label: Editions Mego
Country: Austria
Price: $21.00
"Youll Be Safe Forever marks the first release from Locust in 12 years. Mark Van Hoen, who made a string of influential releases as Locust on R&S records in the 1990s, all but retired the alias at the end of that decade. In May 2012, Van Hoen was invited to perform a live set on WFMU radio. In order to make the set more spontaneous and add a further dimension, he asked friend and fellow musician Louis Sherman to collaborate. While improvising new material in Shermans Brooklyn rehearsal studio, it swiftly became obvious that the material sounded like Locust. Inspired by joint explorations with found sound sources and ambient textures, and sharing a pan-dimensional immersion in the length and breadth of analog and digital recording, the duo performed a series of tracks live. This material, combined with previously-recorded tape tracks dating back to 2006 form the bulk of the album. The melancholic depths of electronic music explored in those improvisations, expanded further through subsequent sessions at Van Hoens Woodstock, NY studio, have resulted in this latest entry in Locusts impressive discography. The record showcases prime examples of Van Hoens compulsively hypnotic beats and abstracted pop vocals -- already hallmarks of his collected work since 1993 -- manipulating a global variety of samples in Celemonys Melodyne software to weave a unique sonic tapestry, as inviting as it is intricate. Paired with Shermans evocative synth improvisations -- an immediately visceral element new to Locust -- these collaborators have crafted a shattered landscape that bridges two perspectives of progressive movement in electronic music under a single name. Sherman, an American from Baltimore, comes to the band armed with a vast knowledge of the history of electronic music. This, combined with Londoner Mark Van Hoens known musical pedigree, maps the complete topography of a landscape -- its shadow and light, depth and height, mesmerizing complexity and ethereal simplicity -- with a break-beating heart and alchemical ear." -Editions Mego.

“Logos Firesides and Guitars was one of the most enigmatic private albums from the U.S. Housed in a sparse cover with little info, it was released in tiny quantities on the collectable Audio House label (home also of Smack). Nothing was known about the band until now: they were an obscure folk-rock trio from Kansas, comprised of 16-year-old Steve Epley plus siblings Chris and Cindy Williams. Their sound was charming, home-made folk-rock full of youthful innocence with layers of dual acoustic guitars and refreshing male-female vocals, featuring an impressive set of self-penned songs. Comparisons bring to mind Crosby, Stills & Nash or Shadrack Chameleon. Highly recommended to any folk-rock/SSW sounds collector. First time-ever reissue. Includes a full-color insert with rare photos and liner-notes by band member Steve Epley.” - Out-Sider.

"This latest recording comes as they look back upon 25 years of collaboration as the Logos Duo. More than a retrospective, we see them affirming a long artistic relationship and forging new horizons -- together and on divergent musical paths. In this, their work is a metaphorical journey: an inward exploration of the elegance of algorithmic composition and a voyage out into distant soundscapes. This CD from Godfried-Willem Raes and Moniek Darge is both a literal and figurative journey; in sound and music we have the Yin­Yang energy that is the Logos Duo. Enjoy listening!" --Douglas Quin.

Price: $24.00
"Bristol, England-based sound artist and producer Sophia Loizou presents Singulacra, the follow-up to her 2014 debut, Chrysalis, which is itself a staggering exploration of the conflict between nature and technology and the space between natural and synthetic sounds. With Singulacra, Loizou builds on the framework of Chrysalis for her most ambitious offering to date. Ghostly remnants of hardcore and early jungle percolate throughout while fragments of radio transmissions seep in and out through tape-based processes and spectral processing, leaving the listener in a hauntingly beautiful landscape filled with both solidity and disintegration. Bringing back the times of pirate radio, almost like lost transmissions from beyond the grave, this work provides a sense of intimacy and familiarity during the contemporary full-speed acceleration toward unknown futures. Exploring its audiences anxieties surrounding technological utopias while retaining an emphasis on nurturing human value when facing inhuman forces, Singulacra engages with the potential loss of human essence amid technological progress toward artificial intelligence.

"The Vittelli label announces itself with this fine release of London’s highlife, lowlife, wildlife and everyday life plucked from Ian Rawes’ vast London Sound Survey. At his day job at the British Library sound archive Rawes cut his teeth in archiving and explored its depths. Field recordings and studies by acoustic ecologists came to his attention around the same time that he was looking to create his own capital-based project. At this time the internet promised to be the great equalizer and enthusiasts’ sites like urban75, Classic Cafes, Derelict London, and Subterranea Britannica provided inspiration. Several years later Rawes is responsible for his own huge archive and has explored novel ways of presenting and preserving the recordings on his site. His recordings employ a variety of professional, home made, and adapted devices used both discreetly or in plain view. In recent years Rawes has presented and discussed his work at various institutions, galleries and events around the UK. He’s been featured in The Wire, Time Out, and has appeared on BBC R4, BBC London and the BBC World service. The selections on this LP were made by Vittelli’s Nick Hamilton and were mastered for vinyl by Graham Lambkin (Shadow Ring, Kye). These Are The Good Times comes in an edition of 300 on 180g vinyl in a colour sleeve featuring notes by Ian Rawes and Ed Baxter (Resonance FM)." - Vittelli.

"Long Distance Poison present an irresistible concoction of convergent psychedelic and analog electronic energies, everything from a love of nature, and Rothko-like visual aesthetics, to musical influences like Sky Records, John Carpenter soundtracks, minimalism, and a less-hyper Mother Mallard or post-Phaedra Tangerine Dream. Theyve released some excellent tapes, on Life Like, Cryptic Carousel, and Digitalis Limited, releases that capitalize on the bands strength in long-form electronic composition with a wealth of improvisational wiggle-room. Theres a ground concept for each section of each piece, but that merely serves as a taking-off point for LDPs pulsating extrapolations, typically about 30 minutes in length total, or longer. Theyve been wowing local Brooklyn audiences for some time now, and part of the fun of their shows is the opportunity to experience the band finding their way in the moment, watching the clay of their ideas take on form and urgency as they go." -Wm.

Expanded gatefold edition featuring Cree language lyrics and translation and unseen photos. Remastered from the original analogue master tapes Northland, My Land is the full-length vinyl debut from Cree singer-songwriter, actor, and force of nature, Morley Loon (1948?1986). Born in Mistissini, Quebec, Loon became active in music at an early age. Drawing from his Cree culture, language, and environment, Loon developed an organic style that inspired many Indigenous musicians. News of his talent even reached producers at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) in the late 1970s. Two 7" EPs of original Cree language compositions were laid down first and later compiled into the Northland, My Land album, which was released to the public in 1981. Accompanied by percussion and flute, Loon taps into a spiritual place with this material, achieving a transcendent quality rarely heard in music. NDoheeno, which translates to The Hunter reflects the hunting and gathering traditions of Loons people and region. If you close your eyes and absorb the musics pulse (even without knowledge of Cree), its easy to visualize the subject of this mesmerizing song. In this quote from the original Northland, My Land liner notes, we learn more: The call of the loon--haunting, evocative, across northern lakes and rivers, has been chosen as a signature effect by Morley Loon in his first recorded appearance. Morley and his people are close to the land and to the wildlife as part of the dominant theme of nature itself. The people have great respect for the wild creatures which they hunt, but on which they also depend. This closeness to the natural world is reflected in sentiments expressed in Cree about the traditional pursuits of the Indian. Though a strict traditionalist who wore his hair and clothes in accordant fashion, Loon was also a seasoned road warrior, performing across Canada, the United States, and Europe. He approached things with a special joy, celebrating and promoting his Cree culture to all. Loon was active as a musician until his untimely cancer-related death in 1986. We are honored to help share Morleys music with the world." - Future Days.

The A drapes incense and chimes atop an old copper bowl of ringing tones and tentacle percussion fusion that slow-burns a sweet smoke you never wanna exhale. Dont. The B, Daeh Sti No Cigol, is even more perverse, as backwards as its title and dusty as a mosque. Sudden gestures flutter in the dusk and the sky turns purple.

Like those other encyclopedic compilations of names, locations, dates, and commentary, this one tells a story of an artist and an era as compelling as any novel and more detailed than any biography could aspire to be. Much like the music itself, this book is an act of devotion, not just to facts but to shared ideals and a shared love of beauty. it was done because it needed to be done. This is a vast microcosm of one jazz musician that reveals the macrocosm of jazz during the period of time covered -- an extensive history of jazz through the work schedule of one profound jazz musician and his affiliations with elemental participants in the history of that time and as importantly ever more, this time. 15 years in the making. Astonishing, profound, worthy of high honors in the field of research and any all positive adjectives that can be bestowed on such a mighty creation. Just having this book in ones hands feels like holding a sacrament. And, its beautifully printed -- front & back covers in through each of the 480 pages within. An essential reference work for now and all futures. This is a fully annotated (and generously illustrated) record of practically every time that William Parker has ever played a gig / recording session, with all and every ensemble, as band member or leader, from 1972 clear through to Vision Festival June 2014. Did I use the word "astonishing" already? This is an 8.5"x11" format, 482-page book, with 370+ illustrations, weighing in at over 3 pounds, and was private-press published in an edition of 500 copies." - Centering.

"Working on Trio Prosodico (HOL 093LP), Holiday Records met Arrigo Lora-Totino to go with him through his archive of reel tapes and unreleased material, bumping into these two pieces belonging to a completely different nature compared to his other works - less "acting" and much more "exercise" - where the voice is stressed to its limits in two opposite ways. "Toccata Vocale" is a boiling chorus of short vowel sounds - like hiccuping bullets of a jammed machine gun - while "Ursprache" is a creepy flow of stretched growling voices ending with a multilingual echoing scream." - Holidays.

"Holiday Records presents a reissue of Trio Prosodico (1978) by Arrigo Lora-Totino. Arrigo Lora-Totino is considered one of the fathers of Italian sound poetry. Hes mostly known for having curated the anthology Futura: Poesia Sonora (1978), where he collected the voices of the most interesting sound poets of the twentieth century, but also for being a key figure in the Italian experimental poetry. Active since the late sixties, he gave more than 200 performances of "Gymnastic Poetry" and "Liquid Poetry" (using the Idromegaphone, a tool invented on purpose to let the voice sound through water) and a series of mimic declamations of avant-garde texts, from futurism to dadaism, Russian zaum, expressionism, surrealism, lettrisme and concretism. This sound poem in six movements - performed as a vocal trio together with Sergio Cena and Laura Santiano - was recorded in 1976 in Torino at Studio di Informazione Estetica (S.I.E.) and is considered by the author himself one of his most important works. First volume in a series of sound poetry releases on Holiday Records coordinated by Luca Garino. Comes in a deluxe edition with the complete reproduction of the handwritten original scores. Edition of 250." - Holidays.

Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Recordings of Mauritanias first modern musical group with some never before released material. Formed in the 1960s, the Orchestre National combined folk instrumentation with brass sections and electric guitars. Dreamy and hypnotic sessions are reminiscent of other post-colonial West African orchestras, but diverge with experiments in Mauritanian classical tradition. Like many of the Orchestras created in post-independence Africa, the National Orchestra of Mauritania was created as an idealogical symbol. To the Mauritanian classical music, with its rigid and complex modal system, the group unabashedly added electric guitars and brass sections. Traditional epics were adapted with contemporary sounds. In 1973, the band released their only official recording -- a 7" containing two live recordings from the Maison de Jeune (with the president in attendance). Five hundred copies were pressed in Beirut, Lebanon, and brought back to Mauritania where they were quickly distributed for free until no copies remained. All but vanished into obscurity in the ensuing decades of military dictatorship, these recordings slated for destruction were salvaged during a 1978 coup détat. Comes with extensive liner notes." - Sahel Sounds.

Title: s/t
Format: LP

Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"LORDS OF FALCONRY are a rock group with a spectacular psychedelic edge. Songs blast green, inferno-like hard rock, funneling clouds and stripping away sludge, turning it into the waltz-like sound of mastodons stomping across the tundra. Classic heavy psych is alive in tracks that interweave soft voices and loud guitars that continuously pummel and enchant at every turn like a seven-headed cobra. C.S. Lewis had better watch his step! If psychedelia is quixotically naive, then LORDS OF FALCONRY is its 21st-century doppelganger or spectral double wise to the ways of the fallen world. In an era of organized play dates and close parental supervision, there are already enough people ready to cooperate. LORDS OF FALCONRY offers what is missing-real rock music. Formed in a quest to find the lost note, LORDS OF FALCONRY examines the intersection of a mystical crossroads between the fourth dimension and their own 3-D universe. Since both members are a bit insolent and rather unrealistic about much of reality, the fact that LORDS OF FALCONRY even exists is remarkable in and of itself. LP includes a free download." - Holy Mountain.

“Pressed on 180-gram vinyl. Just when you thought you had heard everything that German electronic music of the 1980s had to offer, up pops an artist who has resolutely stayed off the radar all these years, in spite of having a discography which lists no less than 18 albums. (Hobby) musician Rüdiger Lorenz, a pharmacist by trade, completed an album almost every year beginning in the early 1980s, first as limited runs of two to three hundred on cassette, then switching to vinyl in 1983, and CD in 1990. His last album was released in 1998. Two years later Lorenz died -- unexpectedly and far too soon. In his youth, Lorenz became familiar with bands like Kraftwerk, NEU!, Can, and Cluster. These bands had a lasting influence on his relationship with music, guiding him toward electronica. Electronic music carried a huge practical advantage for Lorenz in pursuing his craft: he was by nature more of a loner, rather than someone who fed off the group dynamic of playing in a band. Soon after purchasing his first synthesizer set-up he quit his band and installed a studio of sorts in his living room. In 1981 he released his first cassette album. Initially intended merely as something to be handed out to friends, the music was surprisingly well received, encouraging Lorenz to persevere. Year in, year out. After work and on weekends. Most copies were sold in the USA. His synthesizer collection grew larger, containing kit pieces, home-made elements, and newly purchased units. One of his own creations, the Loran Modular synthesizer, even found its way into various synthesizer lexica. Lorenz, however, was by no means a classic electronics tinkerer. His technical skills were limited to soldering, as he admitted in a radio interview for HR3, the only interview he ever gave. Southland was created in 1984 and perfectly encapsulates the two facets that dominated German electronic music at that time: on the one hand, poppy, at times absurd tracks, informed by such pre-NDW (German new wave) musicians as Pyrolator; on the other hand more plangent, spherical music echoing Tangerine Dream and the like. His son Tim, thirteen then (now a member of Andreas Doraus live ensemble), can be heard speaking a few lines into a vocoder on "Strange Feelings," and later, as a graphic design student, Tim prepared artwork for his fathers releases.” - Bureau B.

Title: The Syntape Years 1981-1983
Format: 5 LP Box
Label: Vinyl-On-Demand
Country: Germany
Price: $108.00
"Rüdiger Lorenz was a German electronic synthesist and inventor of several modular synthesizer systems, who, over three decades, produced unique, exceptional electronic soundscapes in the manner of Conrad Schnitzler, Edgar Froese, Dieter Moebius, and Hans-Joachim Roedelius. He is one of a very few outstanding artists who seem to never have received the recognition and fame they deserved for their artistic output. This five-LP box set focuses on his earliest self-released cassettes from the early 80s: Queen of Saba (1981), Silver Steps (1981), Wonderflower (1982), and Earthrise (1983), none of which have been reissued before now. Queen of Saba was also licensed and released on Werner Piepers Transmitter Cassetten, which also distributed many of Conrad Schnitzlers tape releases. Earthrise, a compilation of his early works and several newer compositions, was released on the British label YHR Tapes (York House Recordings), run by David Elliott. Rüdiger Lorenz became interested in electronic music and Moog synthesizers in the late 60s. By 1972 he had built his own first Wersi Organ, followed by various amplifiers and effects boxes. In 1977 he had constructed his first synthesizers from an Elektor Formant kit. At the time of his death in 2000, he owned 38 synthesizers including three large self-built modular systems. In the late 70s and early 80s he became a member of the IEMA (International Electronic Music Association), which was established by James Finch of The Nightcrawlers, and also began running his own Lorenz Park Studio. He then became an essential part and pioneering member of the international DIY cassette culture community in the early 80s and contributed to several INKEY$ compilation tapes and the On-Slaught series on the Idiosyncratics label. With their well-established international contacts, he and another German synthesist, Peter Schäfer, started the tape label Syntape and released more than 30 cassettes between 1981 and 1985. In 1983, he began releasing musical on vinyl via his Syncord label; many of these limited records have since become in-demand collectors items." - Vinyl-On-Demand.

Format: 4 CD
Label: Transparency
Country: USA
Price: $28.00
2011 remastered edition. Remastered in June of 2011 by Ju Suk Reet Meate. Perhaps the only logical follow up to the historic LAFMS: The Lowest Form Of Music 10CD box on RRR, is this 4CD compilation based around the 2 LP volumes of Blorp Esette which Ace Farren Ford released under the LAFMS umbrella in 1978 (Vol. 1) and 1980 (Vol. 2, a double LP set). Both of the LPs featured cover & label art by Don Van Vliet which as been reproduced on this CD reissue. Capt. Beefheart cover art was quite a coup for the times and these LPs have long been some of the most desirable LAFMS artifacts (but basically never available to anyone outside of the LA underground at the time of their release). The four CDs are packaged with a 32 page booklet of artwork and notes, and include nearly 3 hours of previously unreleased tracks! The LAFMS bridged the gap. Features performances by: Smegma, Le Forte Four, The Reverend Toad-Eater, Electric Willy Trio, the Di-Dee Dos, Ace Farren Ford, Rick Potts, Doo Dooettes, Henry Kaiser, Dennis Duck, Joe Potts, Chip Chapman, Ace & Duce, Child Molesters, Jerry Bishop, Nopar King, The South Pasadena Free Music Ensemble, Gage Kenady, Ju Suk Reet Meate, Reverend Marty Nation, many more. "In January of 1976 the non-musician comedy team of Ace & Duce officially joined ranks with the newly formed Los Angeles Free Music Society for the legendary Spaghetti Works show in what was then truly old towne Pasadena with fellow stalwarts Le Forte Four and the Doo-Dooettes. When we had begun our forays into free music we had figured to be lone venturers without peers, yet at this point we found ourselves in a sort of like-minded union. Enthusiasm reined supreme, who soon led us to the question of doing an album. For reasons that seem to escape me now, we decided to do a various artists compilation. Response was plentiful, so much so that before it was done plans were underway for a volume 2., which grew to become 2 records. It was a lot of fun. It was also a nightmare. Technology had not yet reached us, and suddenly we had many reels of tape and cassettes, all of varying quality or lack thereof, many with little or no information as to what exactly was on them. We were, in fact, forced to master volume 2 in mono due to varying levels and other technical hardships. Now due to the vision & lack of good sense on the part of Mr. Sheppard, we present the Blorp Esette experience, including volume 2 in stereo as originally intended, and many of the tracks that could not have been included in the original volumes due to time constraints and other maladies, with many new surprises." - Ace Farren Ford.
