Artist: BASHO, ROBBIE
Title: Visions of the Country
Format: LP
Label: Gnome Life
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
“Recorded in the height of Robbie Bashos creative career, Visions of the Country was originally released in 1978, and has been out of print for nearly 36 years. The album is comprised of technically superb instrumentation (6 & 12 string guitars and piano); majestic compositions; transcendent singing and whistling; and astonishing lyrical, emotional, and spiritual depths. It is with a feeling of tremendous honor and joy that we offer this re-issue, which we hope will please existing Basho devotees, and create new acolytes, in equal measure. The feeling is akin to re-introducing an endangered species back into its native habitat, for this album is a precious, mighty, and wild thing. Visions of the Country should not stay cooped-up in expensive e-bay auctions and low quality vinyl-to-Mp3 rips, it needs to soar gloriously in high fidelity through our culture once more! Visions of the Country is most simply a depiction of the expansive American West, and an ecstatic journey into Bashos equally expansive imagination and mystical approach to creativity... In Bashos own words: "My philosophy is quite simple: soul first, technique later, or Better to drink wine from the hands than water from a pretty cup; of course the ultimate is wine from a pretty cup. Amen." Visions of the Country is a shining example of what artistic heights can be attained when soul and technique meet on a deep level – in our opinion it is one of the finest albums ever recorded, wine from a very beautiful and magical cup indeed. This was the 1st of two Basho reissues by Gnome Life. We are also enormously proud to present a beautiful vinyl reissue of Bashos 1979 solo guitar magnum opus Art of the Acoustic Steel String Guitar 6 & 12.” - Gnome Life.

Title: Industrial Collapse
Format: 7"
Label: Gnome Life
Country: USA
Price: $5.50
"Two sides of total existential rebirth! Placental for you and bird by snow, a 7 inch baby of the cosmos, belching new sounds, and visions. Replete with new-metal guitar tones, falsetto cave paintings, and gasoline-riot guitar solos (think Blue Cheer in Thunderdome). Begging the question what is paradise? A waterfall? Or a burning sky-scraper? Each cover is hand printed from a linoleum block by bird by snow, at no extra cost to you. Limited to 300." - Gnome Life.

Artist: BIRD BY SNOW
Title: Sky
Format: LP/CD
Label: Gnome Life
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"To you, children of the Zeitgeist, we give ⿿Sky,⿝ offered in the same generous spirit as this bountiful world itself. Ten songs of reggae-infused, psychedelic, folk music. Existentialism you can dance to! Open-hearted sound-fields, vast and colored with tiny blue-grass orchestras, authentic Dub banjo, black cloud back-beats, and (if you can believe it) California Soukous guitar! Open eyes wide, and take in ⿿Sky,⿝ bird by snows outrageously lush follow-up LP. Cloudy or clear, day or night, let us be absorbed in the one-always-giving moment, and know the sky not as vacuous hole, but as container (whole). Limited to 300, on beautiful tranparent-blue vinyl. Hand silk-screened gold covers, with a lovely hand-made booklet too." - Gnome Life.
