Artist: FAIL, JOHN W.
Title: The Frozen Musics
Format: 4 x Cass Box Set
Label: Dronedisco
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Packaged in a vinyl box, with photocopied booklet and insert. Eight different projects/collaborations physically separated onto eight sides of four cassettes, centering around one dude John Fail. Some will soon know him as one-half of Lied Music (the other half being Glasgow UK-based young filmmaker Luke Fowler; forthcoming LP on Cenotaph, and cassette on Rampart); others will know of Fail already in a variety of contexts and situations (unforgettable -- or perhaps regrettable!). Just some of the collaborators involved: Robert Beatty (Three Legged Race), Sara Okeefe (Eyes and Arms of Smoke), Mike Shiflet (Noumena), Matt Wellins, Matt McDowell (Arco Flute Foundation) -- anyways, its all explained in the liner notes. The vibe is consistent throughout, but general styles could range from drones to sparse sound organization, to some This Meat-esque "rock." - Dronedisco.

Artist: HOTOTOGISU & BURNING STAR CORE
Title: Volume 1
Format: CD
Label: Dronedisco
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Live in-person" collaborations between Hototogisu and the BxC. Hototogisu, as you know, are the time-defying duo of Matthew Bower (Skullflower, Ramleh, Sunroof!, Total, etc.) and Marcia Bassett (Double Leopards, GHQ, Zaimph, etc.). For these sessions, Burning Star Core was C. Spencer Yeh, Robert Beatty, and Trevor Tremaine (the latter two being of Hair Police, Eyes and Arms of Smoke, Sick Hour, etc.). Note that the music on this disc is different material from the Heavy Blossom companion volume "HG/BxC II" released earlier this year. Five tracks, totalling approximately fifty minutes. Packed into the small Horrible Room (RIP) inside the Cedar House (RIP) down in Lexington KY (still alive), individuals huddled in every corner, painting the room in colored cables, glossy wood and metal boxes. Deafness and disorientation was administered through the afternoon on into the night. Summoning over two hours of recorded tape, it was decided to cut the baby in half for adoption between two imprints. Heavy Blossom ferried away the long thick sides of torso, and Dronedisco seized the hooves, antlers, and jaw. The disc starts off with an appropriate invocation; from there punches blindly through one stone cloud after another, coughs and gasps from exhaustion, stumbles and lies motionless. The ritual concludes with a moment of naked acoustic/instinctual spasm, then a cut-off. Originally released in a very small quantity on CD-R as merchandise during various US and UK spring tours, the Dronedisco half of these sessions has been edited and resequenced for this release in the autumn. The pro-pressed disc comes in a black polycase with black and white inserts and a special randomly-selected 1" button (there are five button variations in all)." - Dronedisco.

Pete Nolan you might recognize from the following projects: Magik Markers, Virgin Eye Blood Brothers, the Cops, Shackamaxon, GHQ, etc." - Dronedisco.

Sip a drink on the jetty or survey the Trondheim scene from its roof terrace." - Lonely Planet. With glued covers and insert." -Dronedisco

Artist: YEH, C. SPENCER & WIESE, JOHN
Title: Cincinnati
Format: CD
Label: Dronedisco
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"The cooperative of composer/improvisers John Wiese (Sissy Spacek) and C. Spencer Yeh (Burning Star Core) reveals itself again, presenting a collection of new works titled Cincinnati. So far Wiese & Yehs previous full-length documents have been culled from live performance situations and one could site Cincinnati as the duos first studio album. Recorded face-to-face in late 2007 at Ashworth Tap Room in Cincinnati OH, Cincinnati reveals further unexpected developments and strategies of this ongoing partnership. Familiar machineries were primed, but an increasingly alien attitude was fed through and processed into churning and bewildering shapes. The results of these sessions were catalogued and surgically isolated into specimens by Yeh; a little editing employed to carve the forms somewhat presentable, but no "studio trickery" to mask the organic nature. Mastered by Saff Mastering to sharpen the bulbs and polish the blades, the whole of the fourteen tracks form a monumentally intimate body touched by indeterminate intuition, instant composition, and interior logic. Wiese and Yeh first joined together on a stage in Columbus OH, and since then have participated in the No-FI/CMN "Free Noise" 2007 tour in the UK, as well as fireworks-laden travels through coastal, midwest, and southern USA. With many finished missives yet to be issued, and many ideas discussed but not yet realized, the combined restlessness and curiousity of the team insures that "Cincinnati" gestures not only towards the past and present, but the future as well. Cincinnati is available in an edition of 500 copies in the increasingly alienated compact disc format. The included 8-page booklet contains a pictoral documenting the typical meeting between the two players."
