Artist: BURNT HILLS
Title: Lights Out
Format: One-Sided LP
Label: 8MM
Country: Italy
Price: $22.00
"Burnt Hills are a collective from Albany, NY. Every monday they use to jam and host shows at the Heldberg basement, which is also the headquarter of Flipped Out Records, exquisite label and mailorder active for 25 years. If you are lucky enough to attend one of their shows, you will probably realize that you are experiencing something more than a concert… Its in fact a proper ritual that finds its perfect expression in a music that combines the freedom of free jazz, the fire of garage rock and the hallucinations of the best psychedelic music. Lights Out is just Burnt Hills at their best. Just a little warm up and the Hills explode like a bomb blowing up continually in a furious jam, where heavy vibrating vocals, pulsating rythm section and wild guitar wipe outs move along with perfect cohesion and fluidity. We are completely sucked into the vortex of this groove when a slow comedown begins to the end of the side, with that great solo guitar pattern drawing the last beaufitul images and then… Lights Out! Paste on covers, with hand stamped label. Limited to 150 copies, numbered." - 8mm.

Artist: KAWAGUCHI, MASAMI NEW ROCK SYNDICATE
Title: The Psychedelic Sounds of New Rock Syndicate
Format: LP
Label: 8MM
Country: Italy
Price: $27.00
"The new decade begins with a groovy explosion of sound and colors: Ladies and Gentlemen, here comes The New Rock Syndicate. Band leader Kawaguchi Masami is a veteran of the Tokyo underground scene, being former Miminokoto, Broomdusters and LSD March member, both seminal projects in the development of a certain way to make rock, looking back at the tradition with a new approach, open to psychedelia, noise and free improvisation. As it happens, Masamis activities soon became the object of a passionate cult among music lovers and record collectors. The Psychedelic Sounds of the New Rock Syndicate is the definitive statement of Masami as songwriter and ferocious guitar player, finding in Kikuchi Akira (bass), Kiyasu (drums) and Hasegawa Yohei (guitar on Dazzling Light and (Theme From) New Rock Syndicate) the perfect partners in crime for this unbelievable new studio work. The album opens with an almost sabbattesque anthem (Why) where a heavy riffage is accompanied by lamentous vocals; second piece (Affected Dance) is a deconstructed blues jam, with a touch of narcoleptic magic and simply beautiful. Side b is where the miracle actually happens: every single track is a banger, a compendium of 50 years of rock music compressed in 18 minutes of fire on wax. Songs like Repetition or Tottemo have been rotating non stop here since when we got the master recording. Every other word is useless: a monument. First edition 250 copies, with spectacular artwork by Standard In-Fi Visuals." - 8MM.

Artist: KELLEY, GREG
Title: The Traditions Of The Past Cannot Be Retrieved
Format: CDR
Label: 8MM
Country: Italy
Price: $9.00
"The traditions of the past cannot be retrieved is a collection of five solo works Greg Kelley (known for his work in Nmperign, Heathen Shame, Cold Bleak Heat) recorded from 1997 to 2005 with his 4 track recorder. For those familar with his previous releases, here youll find some of those elements that make Greg a personal, surprising voice as a musique concrete composer: drones, loops, sonic detritus and short gaps of silence alternated with magnificent abrasive moments. The first 4 tracks are a real peach in this sense. The last track 4 Piezos is a 31 minute monolith which works as a second chapter for the whole album: a long, huge piece for(percussion/trumpet/electronix?) collapsing in a shocking finale. Totally amazing. CDR released in an edition of 205 copies." - 8MM.
SOLD OUT

Artist: MAJUTSU NO NIWA
Title: Sylvania 7027 Live
Format: LP
Label: 8MM
Country: Italy
Price: $20.00
"Debut vinyl release for Majutsu No Niwa, band led by guitarist and songwriter Rinji Fukuoka, already funding member of Tokyos legends Overhang Party. Making their own the formula that If a band rocks, then it rocks live, Majutsu No Niwa (litterally "magical garden") recorded this new album live in concert, in order to recreate on LP the astonishing experience that their live set is. Four tracks of pure sonic catharsis, epic songs, cosmic rock, psychic delirium, including a classic tokyo-style ballad, for one of the loudest bands in the planet. Already a cult! Limted to 250 copies, pro printed photo artwork." - 8MM.
SOLD OUT

Artist: MCPHEE, JOE & ELI KESZLER
Title: Ithaca
Format: LP
Label: 8MM
Country: Italy
Price: $20.00
"Recorded on november 2010, Ithaca stands as one of the missing links between the tradition of free jazz and the current explorations in sound art. Bringing together one of the greatest living free jazz saxophonists and a young talented percussionist and sound sculptor, you have a record that sounds like a classic and yet way ahead of its time. McPhees playing here is so lucid that it feels like a compendium of all those aspects of his style that have enlightened his long career, alternating beautiful soft passages to almost silent moments, or exploding into fuorious fire music. On his part, Keszler gives plenty of room to spread out, whether playing minimal rhythmic patterns or creating sound structures that collapse when joes saxophone goes wild. Silence, harmony and noise, perfectly balance each other on a work that is improvised avantgarde music in its purest form. Cover design and drawing by Eli Keszler."
SOLD OUT

Artist: ORCHESTRA OF CONSTANT DISTRESS
Title: Distress Test
Format: LP
Label: 8MM
Country: Italy
Price: $25.00
“In the field of music or any contemporary cultural terrain, concepts like development dynamics and progression are used as aesthetic judgement. To any musician or composer, the idea of musical build up comes with a crisis, any attempt towards formal pleasure calls for suspicion that this desire is never one’s own. In the case of Orchestra of Constant Distress this deadlock manifests itself in an impulse of refusal directed against any evolution and the result is the extreme generic and the absolute distress of normative noise and improvisation. Members with such experiences from The Skull Defekts, Union Carbide Productions, Brainbombs and No Balls are joined in assemblage of catatonic sounds, obstinate riffs and rigid rhythms.” - 8MM.

Artist: PUTAS BEBADAS
Title: Orgulho de Ex​-​Buds
Format: LP
Label: 8MM
Country: Italy
Price: $20.00
“Four years after the opus Jovem Excelso Happy (heralded as instant classic by certified sommeliers such as Julian Cope, Doug Mosurock or Brian Turner), sparse intense live shows, and studio mishappenings, the hung torchbearers of the new stretchings of the rock spectre are back. Forged in Lisbon over three years, “Orgulho de Ex-Buds” explodes in minty tones of will, pride, and craftsmanship, and presents the listeners with a clear picture of the forces that need be, righting the wrongs of the 00’s, and thrusting ahead, as a glorious flare shot into the dark sky.  While there is a sense of familiarity throughout the record, it is so in a pynchonesque flair. Going from Chrome to Crom, and speeding through Sightings’ and Brainbombs’ lawns while chanting melodies that could equally have been drawn from the portuguese punk/hardcore songbook or atlantan mixtapes (without forgetting their own Cafetra Records’ archetypal lyrism), keeping it fresh all along. Bubblegum auto-tuned voices riding ferocious waves of snare-cymbal insanity, guitars building walls and tearing them down, and basslines that know exactly where they’re going. All of this while keeping the previous record’s tradition on telling sweet, boozy, and sour tales, sometimes hopeful, sometimes hopeless.  The vocals now occupy a more central role; each lyrics’ metres melting twisted organic rhythm into the sauce. While on surface the themes and mannerisms might remind those of Råberg, Lifeless or even Putnam traditions, Orgulho de Ex-Buds is closer to Portuguese literary mavericks Luiz Pacheco or Alberto Pimenta, with a generous dose of confident control poured over the wit and lasciviousness, with a humanist (!) background.  The whole album is action-packed, fast, and liberating, with song highlights all through: the scorching album opener “Geme” (moan) setting the tone; the brain dancing non-pc anabolic tale “Proteina” (protein); the gratifying tempo structure of “Gorduchinha” (fatty); the anthem “Fada deste lar” (this home’s fairy) with one of the catchiest intros on this side of the noise x rock intersection (“cona e cu aberto/é corrente de ar/tira a cuequinha/deixa a peida a refrescar” | “open ass and cunt/it’s a breeze/take of your panties/let the booty cool down”); the jewels robber love chants in “Joia” (jewel); the ode to Lisbon’s lost and found oasis “Cruzeiro de Velhos” (a cruise for elders); the mesmerizing gynecological existentialism of “Cona da Mãe” (Mothers Cunt); and the finale where ethylic oneness with the universe’s riddles and gifts wraps thing up, “Camões”. Fundamental.” - 8MM.

Artist: SUISHOU NO FUNE
Title: Bonsai No Ie
Format: LP
Label: 8MM
Country: Italy
Price: $29.00
"The new instalment from Pirako Kurenai and Kageos Suishou no Fune is finally ready, and its a true gem. Recorded in a Bonsai Shop in Tokyo, summer 2010, Bonsai No Ie is a dream made out of floating guitar textures and vanishing vocal lines. Four spectral, naked pieces that stand as the core of Suishou no Funes poetry, where delicate folk moments, abstract blues riffs and oniric ballads concur in the realisation of  the definitive psych experience. Close your eyes and abandon your senses to a journey through the land of ethereal joy and endless abandon. Comes in a beautiful professionally printed cover, specifically designed by artist Anya Kuts. Edition of 250 copies." - 8MM.
