Artist: BLACK TO COMM
Title: Rückwärts Backwards
Format: LP
Label: Dekorder
Country: Germany
Price: $23.00
"Finally, heres the vinyl version of the debut album by Hamburgs Black To Comm. Strictly limited edition of 222 copies, hand screened grey cardboard sleeves, full colour insert, postcard and gold stamped labels." - Dekorder. "The whole album is very dream-like, mystical and fascinating, like being in the middle of a fog bank and loosing your sense of direction but always knowing that youll find your way out one way or the other." - (Mats Gustaffson/The Broken Face). "What makes this record stand out so much is its attention for detail and the thoughtful combination of source material and additions. On the album opener "Bees" for example, somebody humms over the sound of bees. It just fits perfectly. The same goes for the vintage sounding sweet lullaby loops on "March of the Vivian Girls" that get shadowed by a full distortion noise attack. Over the course of its eight tracks, "Rückwärts Backwards" exemplifies this hard-to-achieve equilibrium of beauty and repulsion, of nature and civilization. A fascinating listen." - (Foxy Digitalis). "The title track sounds like Nicos "Marble Index" produced by William Basinski instead of John Cale with vague traces of glockenspiel becoming increasingly carnival-like, wandering behind decaying hiss. Special mention must also go to the accelerator tones and military rigour of "March of the Vivian Girls" which slowly build to a collapse of trebly noise." - Indiecult.

Artist: BLACK TO COMM/AOSUKE
Title: Split
Format: LP
Label: Dekorder
Country: Germany
Price: $20.00
"This vinyl-only split-LP release is a meeting of two of the most interesting bands coming out of Hamburg, Germany at this moment, both continuing the long tradition of both challenging and explorative music coming from this city in the last decades. From Krautrock to the origins of the so-called Neue Deutsche Welle from experimental sound artists to some of the finest Pop Ambient, Hamburg is regularly spitting out some of the most singular artists on this planet. Both Aosuke and Black To Comm have absorbed influences from all these sources (and a million others) while working towards their very own individual vision The two brand new tracks by Black To Comm are continuing the massive organ/voice drone alchemy of the last double-LP while refining and personalizing his sound, reaching new heights of blazing sonic mysticism. Aosuke have decided to home-record their new material, continuing their loop-oriented, monotone yet highly melodic ambient journeys. Working with repetition and small abstractions, all instrumental "loops" are played by hand and recorded live without overdubs (one of the main principles of the guitar/electronics duo), creating surprisingly concrete dormant and somnambulistic soundscapes while fortunately completely lacking the washy and drowsy effects of most ambient music. Black To Comm is the one-man project of Marc Richter who is the brain behind the Dekorder label as well. So far he has released two albums on his own label ("Rückwärts Backwards" and "Wir können leider nicht etwas mehr zu tun..."). Aosuke is the duo of Tobert Knopp and Ulf Schütte, the latter being a label head as well (Tape Tektoniks). Last year they have released their debut "Monotone Spirits" album co-released by Hamburgs Audiolith label and South Germanys Meudiademorte label." -Dekorder.

Artist: DIJKSTRA, RAYMOND
Title: L Opus LH
Format: LP
Label: Dekorder
Country: Germany
Price: $18.00
"Dutch artist/musician Raymond Dijkstra is one of the most radical and original composers around today. With a clear DIY ethos and self-imposed restrictions he has created a singular universe all by himself. In the past 7 years he has (self-)released countless LPs, 7" , 5" & 3" Vinyl releases in very tiny editions on his Le Souffleur label, all packaged in carefully edited artworks made by Dijkstra himself. ⿿LOpus LH" will be one of his first widely available releases since 2003s collaboration with Timo van Luijk (Af Ursin, Noise Makers Fifes, In Camera, Nurse With Wound) as Asra. Dijkstra is using a minimal set-up for all of his compositions: harmonium, scraping metal & glass, and, exclusively to his "Opus" cycle the addition of tuba, strings and audio effects. Hes exploring these small parameters in an improvised and highly personal, often trance-like, ecstatic setting comparable to "Automatic Writing" or "Surrealist Automatism" techniques. By offensively restricting and repeating his methods he is able to profoundly explore the depths of the particular sounds and, not least, of the player/composers psyche itself. "LOpus LH" is the second title in Dijkstras series "The Advantages of Schizophrenia". "All my work is highly autobiographical, highly subjective and highly emotional. In this sense my work is the complete opposite of that from most musicmakers out of the experimental corner whos work is mostly without any emotion. The reason for me making music is to strenghten my connection with life. For me my music is not experimental, simply because it was Never made to experiment. There is a bit of a problem with most experimental musicians, who are mostly only touching the surface of a subject after which they go beyond to find another experiment. I feel more connected to painters and sculptors who delve deep into the subject and explore it thoroughly, going into every possible direction, to really connect with their world. Even more interesting I find it when one connects with ones own genuine personal world. Just to come home to his self, instead of going out for a journey, what experimenting often is." Limited edition of 300 copies!" -Dekorder

Artist: EXCEPTER
Title: The Stand
Format: One-Sided Picture Disc 12
Label: Dekorder
Country: Germany
Price: $18.00
“Volume 6 in Dekorders series of highly limited Hybrid-Vinyl 12" releases to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the label. It comes out simultaneously with Vol. 5 (Experimental Audio Research) and 7 (Black To Comm). Previous entries in the series had been exclusive releases by Pye Corner Audio, Ensemble Economique, Kemialliset Ystävät and Alien Radio.

Future contributions will feature new & exclusive recordings by Leyland Kirby, Bill Kouligas (PAN Records) and Vindicatrix. Hybrid-Vinyl is a newly devised combination of a Picture-Disc on one side and a regular vinyl release on the other. The audio will be cut into the black vinyl side to utilise the superior audio quality of classic vinyl (compared to the often weaker sounding picture disc pressings).

Excepter is the creation of No-Neck Blues Band member John Fell Ryan founded in 2002. Their records have been released on labels such as Load, Fusetron and Animal Collectives Paw Tracks. Most of their improvisational live shows have been recorded and released on the bands website. A new album will be coming out this year on the Blast First (petite) label.

The Stand includes three new recordings featuring Lala Harrison Ryan and John Fell Ryans son John Victory. Victory was only 18 months old when he performed his vocals. The Fence was originally used as the soundtrack to their piece in the Museu Berardo exhibit in 2012 (Link: onovooficio.museuberardo.pt/excepter).

Highly collectable vinyl-only release (no repress!) on a new format. Cut by Lupo at Calyx Mastering.” - Dekorder.

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

Artist: HEVOSET
Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Dekorder
Country: Germany
Price: $22.00
"Hevoset is the duo of two of the most enigmatic individuals of the Finnish Underground, namely Jan Anderzen and Jani Hirvonen, both hailing from Tampere. Anderzen is ringleader of a mysterious multitudinous beast known as Kemialliset Ystävät (Fonal Records), a part-time member of Avarus and Islaja and records solo as Tomutonttu (Ultra Exzema, Beta-Lactam Ring Records) with a new album coming out on Dekorder this year (hopefully). Hirvonen is best-known under his Uton monicker with two LPs on Dekorder and a stream of releases on Last Visible Dog, Digitalis, Ruralfauna, Jewelled Antler, Pseudo Arcana and his own Ikuisuus label. While most one-off meetings between so-called experimental and improvising musicians often sound like bad excuses for a few beers and endless jams this is quite the opposite - a heavy weight championship finale of two like-minded whizkids cross-fertilizing each other with idea after idea, leading to some of the weirdest and quixotic recordings you will have heard of the two. Everything you loved about Kemialliset Ystävät, Uton and Tomutonttu is contained in Hevoset.....and more. Rural psychedelia, out-of-tune plucked and strummed strings, overloaded organs and effect pedals, Jani Hirvonens sweet wordless vocals, ecstatic improvised drone collages, bells, backward loops, jungle percussion and tons of unidentifiable sounds and noises shaped into tight 4 - 6 minute tracks." - Dekorder.

Artist: IIBIIS ROOGE
Title: S/T
Format: LP
Label: Dekorder
Country: Germany
Price: $16.00
"Iibiis Rooge is the new superastral duo team bringing together the mysterious High Wolf (Not Not Fun Records, Winged Sun) with the seminal talents of Mr. Neil Campbell, better known these days as Astral Social Club (Fat Cat, VHF, Qbico, Important, Textile, Bottrop-Boy and countless other labels around the globe) and (ex-) member of Vibracathedral Orchestra, A-Band, and other obscure/legendary outfits. The new self-titled LP is the debut album of the band (dont call it "project") combining modern psychedelic High Wolf jams with the fucked up yet refined electronics and techno-infused beat choppery of the Astral Social Club - the result being a lot more then you might have expected from the two, transcending their combined talents into a multicoloured supernova. The strength of the album is an unexpected pop sensibility and airiness, while still being tighter and more consolidated than their regular solo outfits. Even the noisier elements are embedded in loose song structures with a carnivalesque air dominating the whole atmosphere. While the duos solo outings are often camouflaging any melodies in oodles of electronic noises or lo-fi psych jams and hiss this is a fairly different affair with simple melodic textures always dominating the four tracks. The defibration of structures is still apparent but the music is constantly pulling itself together again. Where the Astral Social Club is sometimes willingly losing himself in electronic soundscapes and the High Wolfs short & sketchy songs are rarely fully formulated by nature, all the positive aspects of their respective works are combined and complemented in Iibiis Rooge. These gentlemen are the perfect match. A visible proof that (musical) online dating can be a highly prosperous activity." -Dekorder

Artist: KUBIN UND DAS MINERALORCHESTER, FELIX
Title: Music for Theatre and Radio Play
Format: LP
Label: Dekorder
Country: Germany
Price: $20.00
"We are extremely excited to announce the 1st collaboration between the Dekorder label and our old friend, local conspirator and private hair gardener Felix Kubin. Kubin has achieved world wide reputation by releasing post-dadaist, futuristic NDW-influenced Organ&Korg smash hits on his own Gagarin label, on A-Musik, Ski-pp, Meeuw, Diskono et al. He has collaborated with People Like Us, Coolhaven, Mark Boombastik, Asmus Tietchens, ensemble Intégrales, David Fenech, Ergo Phizmiz, Boris D. Hegenbart, Wojtek Kucharczyk and many others. His first recordings date back to his teenage years in the early 1980s, followed by his electroacoustic noise duo Klangkrieg and the pseudo-communist Liedertafel Margot Honecker. Right from the start Felix Kubin has written and recorded music for films (hence the title of his first album) by the likes of Mariola Brillowska and Anke Feuchtenberger and continues the German tradition of "Hörspiel" (radio play) with works such as "Territerrortorium", "Nachtspeicher", "Orpheus Psykotron" and "Syndikat für Gegenlärm" (with guest appearances by Matmos, DAT Politics and Wolfgang Müller of Die Tödliche Doris). Some of Kubins most gorgeous and adventurous works are his contributions to "The Raft" (a radio play by the mysterious Xentos Bentos of The Homosexuals, directed by Lukas Simonis of Coolhaven, Trespassers W, Dull Schicksal) and his soundtracks for theatre plays by Branko Simic ("Zufall", based on a short story by Vladimir Nabokov) and the notorious Schorsch Kamerun. The latter (known in Germany as a member of Goldene Zitronen) directed "Hollywood Elegien" based on a song cycle by Bert Brecht and Hanns Eisler. Now the best parts of these works are for the first time available on LP and CD, simply (and aptly) titled "Music for Theatre and Radio Play". While the musical spectrum on this release covers a variety of styles and moods its still almost immediately recognisable as a typically Kubin-ist work featuring the main ingredients his records and body-and-mind-boggling live shows are famous for. Twisted rythms & playfully clever arrangements that could have been created by a mutated reincarnation of the legendary Juan Esquivel; hauntingly ethereal tracks sounding like a narcoleptic John Carpenter playing Angelo Badalamenti arrangements; contorted Big Band music, pre-war Schlager and Vaudeville sent through a malfunctioning pre-digital time machine; Ennio Morricone cloned as a Russian male choir; instrumental workers songs Hanns Eisler might have imagined in a feverish nightmare - its all there, and more!" - Dekorder.

Artist: KUUPUU
Title: Unilintu
Format: LP
Label: Dekorder
Country: Germany
Price: $22.00
"Unilintu" is the second of two vinyl-only LPs on the Dekorder label compiling the best material from Kuupuus first four CD-R and cassette releases, this time presenting a slightly darker and even more coherent sonic vision compared to last years gorgeous "Yökehrä" LP.." - Dekorder. "Of all the many travellers in the Finnish psychedelia scene, Kuupuu is surely one of the most enigmatic.(.....) Among the Finnish leftfield, Yökehrä is second only to Ess Sateenkaarisuudelma in its meditative intensity." - The Wire, September 2006.

Artist: KUUPUU
Title: Yakehrau
Format: LP
Label: Dekorder
Country: Germany
Price: $20.00
"Jonna Karanka aka Kuupuu is one of the main movers of the (deservedly) much hyped Finnish Psychedelic Free Folk scene. Originally hailing from Tampere she is known as a core member of Avarus, Anaksimandros, Kukkkiva Poliisi and Maniacs Dream. Additionally, she has recently started Hertta Lussu ssä with Lau Nau and Islaja and has collaborated with Tomutonttu (aka Jan Anderzen of Kemialliset Ystävät) and Paavi (as Lussu ja Paavi). "Yökehrä" is the first of two vinyl-only LPs on the Dekorder label compiling the best material from her first four CD-R and cassette releases, all of which immediately became much sought after collectors items, fetching ridicolous prices on the eBay market. This LP is a beautifull collection of haunting (sometimes spooky) home baked freeform folk songs, strange lo-fi loops, vocal drones and psychedelic cut-ups, made using weirdly tuned plucked and strummed strings, bells, clattery percussion, unidentifiable wind instruments, backwards tape loops and a ton of other noisemakers all played and recorded by herself; accompanied by her distinctive voice (often looped and layered) with vocals sung and whispered in her native Finnish language making the whole atmosphere even more haunting and mysterious. Jonna Karanka creates an intimate space where the listener feels like sitting next to her in a small chamber or outside in the woods where Kuupuu sings a lullaby just for him. Were proud to say that this has to be one of the most exciting debut albums of the year. Housed in a full colour sleeve with beautifull design / drawings / collage artwork by Jonna Karanka herself." - Dekorder.

Artist: LEUKERS, ANTONIA
Title: Hasenlove
Format: Picture Disc LP
Label: Dekorder
Country: Germany
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.

Artist: OUR LOVE WILL DESTROY THE WORLD
Title: Stillborn Plague Angels
Format: LP
Label: Dekorder
Country: Germany
Price: $17.00
"The gates of Birchville Cat Motel crack, creak wide, and crash, unleashing a gush of soul-fried bleakness and love-damage stained with a defiantly metallic pose. Thats METALLIC... as in, has the surface qualities of metal not METAL... as in, has the surface qualities of Metallica... step back you fucking freaks. Although the broken bricks of BCM are still plain to see amid the burning wreck and ruin, Stillborn Plague Angels represents the first fully formed sentence in a new chapter of Campbell Kneales ongoing tome of star-spangled, psychedelic, noise-OM. Cholesterol-shaving guitar peeks over the trench to survey an adrenalised landscape of endless roaring catastrophy... Everything louder than everything else! Our Love Will Destroy The World is the new one-man project by New Zealander Campbell Kneale after disbanding BIRCHVILLE CAT MOTEL. In the past Kneale has released albums on Ecstatic Peace, Corpus Hermeticum, Last Visible Dog, Conspiracy and his own Celebrate Psi Phenomena label. He has colllaborated with Lee Ranaldo, Neil Campbell, Bruce Russel, John Olson (Wolf Eyes), Yellow Swans, has toured throughout Japan, Europe, America and Australia and also records und the names Black Boned Angel and Ming.

Artist: UTON
Title: Alitaja Ylimina
Format: LP
Label: Dekorder
Country: Germany
Price: $22.00
"Alitaju Ylimina" is the first vinyl album by Finlands Uton released in a strictly limited edition of 500 copies in a marvellous fold-out sleeve with a full-colour drawing by Uton himself on the outer sleeve and some fierce black&white illustrations by dutch artist Christelle Gualdi inside. Uton is the one-man project of Jani Hirvonen originally hailing from Tampere and currently travelling and recording in India. Hirvonen is one of the most active musicians of the Finnish underground scene that has recently presented us the likes of Kuupuu, Kemialliset Ystävät, Islaja, Paavoharju and Lau Nau and a seemingly never-ending stream of beautiful and highly original record releases. The music of Uton is no exception there, drawing inspirations from psychedelia to free jazz to pure ecstatic drones and noises using a wide range of acoustic instruments from various parts of the globe and a bulk of electronics. Recorded in glorious lo-fi the mystery of Hirvonens sound is difficult to pinpoint; sheer ravishing beauty, elegancy and variegation is stashed behind a wall of grey, inscrutable haze - gorgeous melodies and voices, reeds and alien sounds gleaming through the mist from time to time, shimmering like diamonds through layers of dust. Uton has previously released dozens of CDs, CD-Rs and Cassettes on a myriad of labels including Jewelled Antler, Pseudo Arcana, Last Visible Dog, Digitalis and his own Ikuisuus. He has collaborated with Amon Dude (Avarus), Anla Courtis (Reynols), Antony Milton (Black Boned Angel), Ben Reynolds, Peter Wright, Phil Todd (Ashtray Navigations) and Jan Anderzen (Tomutonttu, Kemialliset Ystävät) among others. The latter collaboration (under the Hevoset moniker) will be released on LP by Dekorder later this year." - Dekorder.

Title: Straight Edge XXS
Format: LP
Label: Dekorder
Country: Germany
Price: $22.00
""Straight Edge XXS" is the 2nd vinyl album by Finlands Uton released in a strictly limited edition of 500 copies on the Dekorder label. It comes in a gorgeous full-colour collage sleeve assembled by Hirvonen himself. While Utons last Dekorder album "Alitaju Ylimina" (and most of his other recorded works respectively) are hazy lo-fi drone masterpieces for the most part, this is a completely diffferent affair. Recorded straight to tape within one month, right after returning from a 6-month trip to India, these songs (if you could call them songs) are completely out-of-this-world; very short and crazed sketch-like pieces sounding like a Nonesuch Explorer LP of long lost field recordings from an as yet unexplored continent. Or is it World Music from an unknown planet recorded by those Sublime Frequencies guys from mysterious short wave transmissions? Well, it is all that and more. It is pure ecstatic expression channelized through Psychedelia, Free Jazz, Noise and rural ancient Folk Music from all over the world in a completely naked, predominantly acoustic setting. One of the purest forms of music you could imagine; while all the familiar Uton elements remain evident in a hazy backcloth. Uton is the one-man project of Jani Hirvonen originally hailing from Tampere. Hirvonen is one of the most active musicians of the Finnish underground scene that has recently presented us the likes of Kuupuu, Kemialliset Ystävät, Islaja, Paavoharju and Lau Nau and a seemingly never-ending stream of beautiful and highly original record releases.

"Unexplained Objects" is the 3rd vinyl-only LP by Finlands Uton for the Dekorder label, like his previous Dekorder albums released in a strictly limited edition of 500 copies in a beautiful full-colour heavy duty sleeve designed by Hirvonen himself. While the last albums explored rural soundworlds from the outer reaches of this planet and hidden places of the inner human (and animal) mind, he has finally left planet earth completely and is now reaching out for outer space and alien communication. Hirvonen seems to have traveled the spaceways, bringing home folk music and field recordings from faraway planets and alien cultures. Erich von Däniken beware! Uton is the one-man project of Jani Hirvonen originally hailing from Tampere.

Artist: YOUNGS, RICHARD
Title: Like A Neuron
Format: LP
Label: Dekorder
Country: Germany
Price: $18.00
"Richard Youngs is a prolific British musician (located in Glasgow) with an extremely diverse output. Dusted Magazine once wrote he is "defying strict genre classifications since the early nineties, swapping labels, styles, partners, motifs, and recording techniques as the desire has struck him". So his new album for Dekorder might not be a surprise to anyone following his career. Still, a self-proclaimed all-electronic "ecstatic House record" comes somewhat unexpected. With a line of distinctive synthesizers often used for Techno/House Music Youngs recreates the energy, euphoria and frenzy of these styles without ever trying to recreate the music note by note. The final outcome sounds like recordings made by aliens who have received transmissions about House Music but never listened to the music itself. The album reminds of the sound of hallways/corridors inbetween large House parties where you can hear the music from several floors collide. While its an emulation, interpretation or replica of House Music, its still managing to evoke similar feelings even though some might find it difficult to dance to the music. In the past, Youngs has released several albums on a dozen labels such as VHF, Jagjaguwar, Table Of The Elements, Gipsy Sphinx, Majora, Chocolate Monk, Celebrate Psi Phenomena, Fusetron and his own No Fans outlet. He has collaborated with Neil Campbell (aka Astral Social Club), Matthew Bower, Simon Wickham-Smith and many others and was a member of the A-Band and has performed live and in the studio with Sunroof! And Skullflower. Additionally, Youngs played bass for Jandek, appearing on three of his live records/DVDs. Limited edition of 500 copies!" - Dekorder.
