Artist: Q. LESLIE
Title: Presque Vu!
Format: LP
Label: Majora
Country: USA
Price: $9.00
"Leslie Q is a new discovery from Tennessee I believe, who records songs in a solo bedroom style that are startling in their immediacy, power and ability to fly out of the known universe. Really rough textured acoustic guitar, insanely personal vocals, perfectly realized individualistic style. While Lou Guru and the rest of the Lo-fi-kill-me-now generation feverishly scour their Boys Life back issue set-collections for subject matter and inspiration, its nice to hear somebody maintain & actually add to the Real Person cannon." - FE. Late 90s LP..

"Second solo album of spectacular personal intimation; absolutely hammered acoustic guitar mantra-esque tunes and enchanting droned vocals on top. This is a sound for many unanswered dreams." - FE. Late 90s LP..

Artist: Q4U
Title: Q1 Deluxe Edition 1980-1983
Format: LP
Label: Dark Entries
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Q4U was born the winter of 1980-1981 in Reykjavik, inspired by the British punk movement. By early 1982 they self-released a full length cassette, Skaf I Dag and appeared in the documentary Rokk I Reykjavik, which showcased the Icelandic punk scene. This version of the band ended and only two members continued on. In the summer of 1982 their drummer was replaced by a Roland TR-808 drum machine they named "Elisabet II", signaling a change in the groups sound toward synthesizer-driven post punk. In August 1983 they recorded a final set of demos and then called it quits. This compilation collects 16 songs from 1980-1983. SIde A features the original six songs from the Q1 EP, plus two songs from the Rokk i Reykjavik soundtrack. Side B collects four demos from 1982 and four demos from 1983, all presented on vinyl for the first time ever. Q4U began with a stylish, aggressive punk image before experimenting with drum machines and synthesizers, which almost nobody did in Reykjavik at the time. The later sound had gothic leanings,often compared with Siouxsie and the Banshees and Xmal Deutschland. Their body of work is united by the powerful vocals of Ell, who mostly sings in Icelandic about controversial, political experiences, much like Ari Up of The Slits. Each LP includes a double sized fold-out poster with lyrics, photos and drawings by the band plus a Q4U sticker!" -Dark Entries.

Artist: QOPH
Title: Pyrola
Format: Double LP
Label: Nasoni
Country: Germany
Price: $40.00
"QOPHs unique sound is deeply rooted in early 70s UK progressive rock and blended with a heavy psychedelic touch. This means marvelous vocal harmonies and dual guitar virtuosity climbing to acrobatic heights, trippy electronical effects and bluesy riffing." - Nasoni

Artist: QUARTETTO
Title: Organic, Playco 1969
Format: CD
Label: Alga Marghen
Country: Italy
Price: $20.00
"The stable Quartetto that pianist Davide Mosconi, saxophonist Enzo Gardenghi, percussionist Marco Cristofolini, and cellist and violinist Gustavo Bonora brought to life beginning in the late 60s constituted the core of what would, in the early years of the next decade, become the larger improvising ensemble NADMA. The group was also an elegant and accomplished expression of the musical objectives of its members. The rich yields that Davide Mosconi cultivated from his exploration of improvisation and the visionary creativity that revealed influences from parallel planes throughout his oeuvre originated in his formative years. In the life story of Mosconi before the formation of the Quartetto, it emerges that his first musical affirmations arose as he was completing his studies as a photographer. Mosconi furthered his training as a photographer in New York from 1964-1968, including stints as assistant to Richard Avedon and Hiro. Prior to his definitive return to Italy, he spent 1968 in Mexico, a lengthy visit documented splendidly in his photographs. During his stay there, he may have been the first European musician to meet Conlon Nancarrow and encounter his music. From Nancarrow, Mosconi learned the workings of the Ampico player piano. Only much later indeed, in the early 80s, when György Ligeti championed his works, was this now-legendary American composer rediscovered internationally. The Quartetto represented, at last, a solid foundation with which Davide Mosconi succeeded in realizing his own notion of improvisation, aided by musicians who shared his ideal of a continuous, fluid music and thus of a pliable expression that superseded the limits of existential consciousness. In 1968-1969, the group launched an uninterrupted series of private events, studio sessions and live concerts at venues that ranged from offhand happenings to alternative clubs to concert halls. It is possible to reconstruct rather faithfully the activities of Davide Mosconis Quartetto due to a vast amount of material documentation and a conspicuous number of archive recordings. The first recording sessions date from February 14, 1968, and from April of this same year, both made at the Playco studio in Milan and both featuring the lineup of Davide Mosconi, Marco Cristofolini and Enzo Gardenghi, with the additional presence of bassist Giorgio Buratti for the February recordings. The majority of these early Playco recordings, however, date from various months of 1969 until October, after the group solidified its roster with Gustavo Bonora. In several reel tapes dating back to this era, the collective name is often given not as Quartetto, but, alternately, as Organic or Organic Orchestra, designations that foreshadow the Natural Arkestra moniker later associated with NADMA. If one excludes the live recordings from the Auditorium San Fedele and Circolo Lepetit concerts of November and December 1969, the best evidence of the musical art of the Quartetto is found on the reel labeled Organic 1969 Playco, heard in its entirety on the present CD. Examination of the various tapes that document the Playco sessions of 1969 show that this reel is the only one with any consistent identification of the titles of individual tracks, as well as the only one to show signs of careful editing, perhaps intended use as a demo. There are tracks that focus concretely on timbral resources and instrumental gesture (Tubi sonori in scale and Disturbi di violino) and pieces that have decidedly parodistic moments (Parodia della festa and the diptych of Avanti! Para babà and Babà-fui-pà). At least two classics of the Quartetto playlist are also to be found: the opener Fattoria degli animali, whose title manifestly evokes George Orwells dystopic novel, with its onomatopoeic sounds at the onset; and Pugno chiuso, the last of the pieces to be recorded and the one which Gustavo Bonora later called the purest emblem of the musical art of the Quartetto. This latter work is a perfect example of an enragé performance praxis that was then unparalleled in the Italian improvised music scene. The albums sign-off does not stem from the same sessions. It is instead an edited extract from the Circolo Lepetit concert of December 1, 1969, and as such is a most effective taste of the informal and symbiotic potency that distinguished the live Quartetto experience: the merging of individual instruments into a unified whole. This CD is included in a beautiful digipack full-color sleeve with photos and liner notes. Also included is a 12-page booklet with an essay titled Before NADMA: Davide Mosconi and the Quartetto by Gabriele Bonomo as well as the testimonies by Enzo Gardenghi and Gustavo Bonora." -Alga Marghen

Artist: QUASISPECIES FOUR

Label: Art Into Life
Country: Japan
Price: $24.00
“A document of a quartet session by Toshiji Mikawa(Incapacitants, hijokaidan), Hideaki Shimada(Agencement), Nobuo Yamada(Artbreakhotel), and Katsuyoshi Kou(Soundings), recorded at Hatchobori Nana Hari on April 28, 2012. At the time Hideaki Shimada (Agencement) had just started drawing again, and it was advertised that the session would be recorded and released as an LP using Shimadas artwork. Four twenty minute takes were recorded, and the LP includes two of these takes. The project title, Quasispecies Four, was inspired by the image of an indeterminate and neurotic noise performance. Limited edition of 250. 

Comes with an obi with attached string that encircles the whole jacket. On the rear is an insert with photographs from the performance.” - Art Into Life.

Artist: QUATRILLION REVELATIONS, THE
Title: s/t
Format: Cass
Label: Loki
Country: USA
Price: $6.00
Edition of 200 packaged in a manilla envelope with insert. "When we powered up the machine, there was a light which glowed from a central location like a third eye. It would pulsate as the sound emanated from the speaker in the unit. Somehow it was very warm, comforting and hypnotic. We later found out that this light acted as a crude VU meter pulsating more brightly during peak output. This is when we first heard "The Quatrillion Revelations" in all its mono glory. What could this "music" be? It was peaceful and yet menacing. Was it a soundtrack? Was it composed by some Northeast Ohio Christian death cult? It was impossible to know. There was no information except for the title on the back of the tape box. It seemed to be composed of analog synthesizer, guitar, tape delay and god knows what else. When it was recorded is impossible know." - Loki.

Artist: QUEHENBERGER, PHILIPP
Title: Content
Format: LP
Label: Editions Mego
Country: Austria
Price: $21.00
“Philipp Quehenbergers music has existed as a consistent strain amongst the Austrian underground for the last 15 years. His output is a cracking combination of dancefloor zeal and deep disco disorientation. A perpetually rotating sphere which blends genres while bending the body and mind. Quehenbergers sweaty cerebrum is significantly showcased on his second full-length for Editions Mego. Content ventures deeper into Quehenbergers world of electro noir, ketamine cool and sordid soul. "Fucked" is a monumental drive through a gloriously queasy and sleazy terrain which leads into the rolling rhythms of the killer Uff Uff 12" (DEMEGO 020EP). Here, an oozing psychedelic tapestry folds amongst muffled voices, resulting in a striking, propulsive chant. "Startled" further charts the depths of dance and disorientation as striding rhythms coalesce amongst gloriously diminishing synths. "Extended" bounces around an ecstatic carnival atmosphere where an abject ringleader swerves amongst swirling organs and a thick organic beat. "Content" is brimming with hard, driving dance music -- a bass line degenerate hurtling out of the speakers as the ultimate mood enhancer. Equal parts quarantine and club, Content is one of Quehenbergers finest works to date. Mastered at Dubplates & Mastering. Cover drawing by Marta Mikulec.” - Editions Mego.

Artist: QUICK, BILL
Title: Maravillosa Gente
Format: LP
Label: Time-Lag
Country: USA
Price: $31.00
"Long in the works reissue of this amazing and little known gem, Beautiful People, from 1972. Born in Miami, Florida to an American father and Venezuelan mother, Bill split the USA to Madrid, Spain in the early 70s. Once there he quickly landed a recording deal with famous producer Alain Milhaud of the Explosion label, and set to work on this, his sole LP release. Sessions went down with an impressive cast of up to eleven players in the studio, including Salvador Dominguez & Chema Pellicó (Cerebrum), Jess Lam (Jess & James), and Frank Rojas (Sangre). One of the albums real hidden treasures, though, was the assistance of unknown Texan Mark Gottschall, who co-wrote the title track and adds perfect vocal harmonies as well a second acoustic guitar. A finely balanced mix of sounds that drifts between throbbing electric full band groove and gentle acid folk. When Bill wants to rock, things get downright funky, with a wickedly hard-hitting rhythm section, pumping organ, scorching electric leads, and flipped-out acoustic guitars all locking into some seriously tight jams. Then the next minute, the mood swings and youre deep into some beautifully fragile and introspective folk meditations; often just two acoustic guitars, Bills lyrics, and huge, angelic, vocal harmonies all weaving together into lush tapestries of sound. A few tracks fill out a more folk-rock vibe with flute, autoharp, piano, slide guitar, banjo, and more. Bills lyrics (all in English) and vocals always feel deeply sincere, which combined with his unique voice, unusual accent, and loose delivery, make for one hell of a cool singer. The whole album has an air of mystical psychedelia, yet never strays far from pop craft, and theres a real sun-blasted quality to it all that just makes you want to crank the volume. Nothing amateur or lo-fi about this one; its a pro recording and these guys have serious chops. Its hard to image why it didnt become a hit at the time. The album was released only in Spain and Brazil, to very little interest, and quickly became yet another great album lost to obscurity -- at least until now. Reissued here for the first time, with the collaboration of producer & Explosion label owner Alain Milhaud. Packaged in a heavyweight gloss coated exact reproduction of the original cover, including the original double-sided insert, as well as a huge new full color fold-out insert which reproduces at nearly full size the totally different Brazilian version of the album art. Plus extensive notes by album musicians Salvador Dominguez & Mark Gottschall, and Alex Carretero (Guerssen Records, Spain). Also a small photo of some rare picture sleeves 45s, promotional inserts, lyric sheets, etc. Even the LP labels reproduce the original psychedelic full color explosion label art. Pressed on 180gm audiophile grade vinyl & limited to 1000 copies." - Time-Lag

Artist: QUIET EVENINGS
Title: Impressions
Format: LP
Label: Aguirre
Country: Belgium
Price: $24.00
"Following the much-loved Nova Scotian Arms/Motion Sickness Of Time Travel split LP on Aguirre, heres the second collaborative LP by the couple from LaGrange, Georgia. In a little over three years, the duo that comprise Quiet Evenings -- Grant and Rachel Evans -- have become two of the most prolific and active artists in the American underground. Each also has solo projects: Grants Nova Scotian Arms and Rachels Motion Sickness Of Time Travel. Between those as well as Quiet Evenings, theyve amassed well over 50 releases for various labels in various editions. They also co-run the Hooker Vision label, clocking up a similar amount of releases for other kindred spirits. On Impressions, both sides offer super-repetitive drone-work in the highest form. Outer-space that balances a slow pace with an incredibly intense inertia to evolve immediately, yet gracefully. With minimal instrumentation of guitars and synthesizers, the pieces on Impressions captivate the listener into the world theyve created. Far from the realm of pure ambient drift, subtle forces build within their disarming restraint and provide a stunning balance between light and shade. Quiet Evenings inhabit a ghostly space of unique elegance. This is a duo that can carry their craft well beyond standard shapes. Repressed; 28th volume in the BYG Actuel series; gatefold sleeve, 180 gram vinyl. "Originally recorded at Studio Davout in Paris on August 12th, 1969... the Art Ensemble Of Chicago stands out as one of the most influential and long-lasting avant-garde and free jazz bands of all time. 4 tracks." - Aguirre

Title: I Am Somebody
Format: 7"
Label: Sophomore Lounge
Country: USA
Price: $7.00
Limited edition of 250 copies with spray-glued jackets. “Fucked up, vaped-out, borderline demonic cassette confessionals arranged and performed by head All Gone-er Chris Durham (Roachclip, The Bibs). Another clue of recorded output from Detroits greatest oddball, basement-dwelling, idiot-prog outfit QUILT BOY -- a one-man band coming off like Robert Wyatts Matching Mole, "Man Who Sold The World"-era Bowie bent by early Trux slop and slackerisms.
After a string of self-releases (one of which was fittingly described by Volcanic Tongue as "lonely power tape crying of a Sentridoh crossed with what could almost have been a demo tape that fell into a vat of oil outback of the Takoma HQ circa 1968"), this killer five-song EP "I Am Somebody" -- QBs first for Sophomore Lounge -- is also his long-awaited vinyl debut.” - Sophomore Lounge.

Artist: QUIN, DOUGLAS
Title: Fathom
Format: LP
Label: Taiga
Country: USA
Price: $23.00
"Douglas Quin is a U.S. sound designer, naturalist, public radio commentator, educator, and music composer. For over 20 years Quin has traveled widely, documenting natural soundscapes -- from Antarctic ice to Arctic tundra and from African savannah to Amazon rainforest. His recordings of endangered and disappearing habitats represent one of the most unique and extensive collections anywhere. Quin recently created the sound design for and mixed Werner Herzogs Academy Award® nominated film, Encounters At the End of the World. He contributed to the sound design for Spore, a game from Maxis/Electronic Art, and has also worked on exhibits for the Smithsonian Institution National Museum of Natural History, American Museum of Natural History, and the Polish Academy of Sciences, among others. Quins Fathom brings together four extended underwater soundscapes -- two each from the Arctic and Antarctic. The recordings have been gathered over a period of 15 years, capturing an extraordinary palette of sonic voices, events, spaces, and textures. To the human ear, these soundscapes are haunting and otherworldly; yet they are very much of this world -- out of ear-reach. The tracks are minimally-edited and are his first field recordings to be archived on vinyl. Included with the release is a sealed envelope containing an insert with specific locations, animals, and other elements heard, giving listeners the option to absorb sound with or without association. The envelope is printed with liner notes and comments from Dutch journalist and music critic René van Peer. Mastered by James Plotkin, cut direct to metal and pressed on 200 gram virgin-vinyl, Fathom comes packaged in custom letter-pressed materials and is presented as a limited edition of 1,000 copies." -Taiga
