Artist: 2673/HABEEB
Title: Mugshots Vol. Seven
Format: Cass
Label: Fargone
Country: USA
Price: $6.50
"Kevin Winter, AKA 2673, is a New Jersey sound artist whos amassed a substantial and very impressive discography in a short amount of time -- culminating in his phenomenal recent splits with experimental music icons Kevin Drumm and Jessica Rylan. His side here is a cold, willowy stream of high-pitched speaker sizzle with ear-piercingly clear oscillator tones cutting through. The combination of icy purity and textural noise, as usual with 2673s music, is perfectly balanced. Not particularly harsh, but too stark to be calming, this track is unsettling in the best possible way. Cyber Blast Records owner Habeeb infuses his own ceremonial music with a different slant. The warm ambient drones and deep throbbing basses of his track explore the same stark Antarctic icescape as 2673, but with a much smoother, less textured sound that is more subliminal. If you listen very carefully, you can hear the monsters lurking beneath the smooth surface. Dark ambient at its minimalist best. LIMITED TO 32 COPIES." - Fargone.

Artist: KELLEY, GREG
Title: The Peeled Ones I-III
Format: Double CDR
Label: Fargone
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
�??Almost two years ago, improv trumpeter Greg Kelley released a pair of anonymous CD-Rs under the moniker the Peeled Ones. He made a webpage, sent out press releases, and received NO orders for the debut albums from this previously unknown and mysterious group. The discs, which almost nobody heard at the time, were wildly different from Gregs usual work: one disc of melancholic synth meanderings (I) and one disc of shredding guitar overload (II). This year, the Peeled Ones saga came full circle when Greg decided to record a third installment, returning to his synthesizer for a gorgeous and incredibly realized improvisation. This lavish package includes "reissues" of the two original, ultra-obscure Peeled Ones albums on the first disc, and Gregs fantastic new recording on the second disc. Each disc comes in its own cardboard slipcase with individual artwork (featuring creepy photos selected by Greg) and the whole thing fits in an oversized box along with an essay by Mr. Kelley himself and more haunted pictures. Greg Kelley fans, this is not to be missed; this box is a different and unexpected side to one of modern improvs most versatile and consistently rewarding musicians. LIMITED TO 120 COPIES.�?� -Fargone.

Artist: THERIAULT, DOUG/JEPH JERMAN
Title: Red, Water
Format: CDR
Label: Fargone
Country: USA
Price: $9.00
"This disc of gently processed field recordings flows as beautifully as the river on its cover. Burbling water, birds chirping, and other nasturalistic sounds are only the starting point for a startlingly pretty composition that incorporates these tiny glimpses of nature into a widescreen panorama as sweeping and open as the Western landscape. The result of long-distance collaboration, this discs organic, seamless sound completely belies those origins. Doug Theriault is a guitarist based in Portland, OR, best known as an improviser whos played with such diverse talents as Fred Lonberg Holm, Sean Meehan, Climax Golden Twins, and Noggin. Jeph Jerman is a multi-talented Arizona-based sound manipulator, known for ultra-quiet improv with natural objects and lo-fi field-recordings. Jeph and Doug have recorded together several times, resulting in 3 previous CD-Rs and a cassette, but this project is much different from anything theyve done together in the past. Comes packaged with special, gorgeous artwork: a gatefold cardboard sleeve with a real photo by Jeph attached. LIMITED TO 75 COPIES." - Fargone.
