Artist: AINOTAMENISHIS
Title: Live 418
Format: LP
Label: Holy Mountain
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"AINOTAMENISHIS is a loud, heavy guitar group from Tokyo who were birthed from one oviduct marked "Velvet Underground" and a massive salpinx marked "Gaseneta." Their high-energy rocknroll action was first captured on an extremely limited CDR release, now released for the first time on vinyl. Ainotamenishiss brand of controlled panic is sure to spike the tongues of all those who purport to talk about the rock. It is primal, punk, eerie, harsh, and utterly essential. Featured on PSFs extremely cool Tokyo Flashback 6 compilation CD." - Holy Mountain.

Artist: AUFGEHOBEN
Title: Fragments of the Marble Plan
Format: LP
Label: Holy Mountain
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"The follow-up to 2008s Khora, Fragments of the Marble Plan adds an electronic carapace to AUFGEHOBENs cataclysmic noise-rock foundation. The prevailing sound evokes the Mego label before it added "Editions" to its name and became enamored of American guitar mavericks-back when it purveyed cyclotronic, abstract electronic music that had the centrifugal force of an irrefutable Ph.D. thesis. Such is the overwhelming power of Aufgehoben on the British groups sixth album that even exposure to the MP3s makes one relieved to have health insurance. Music this apocalyptic has few peers, but some approximate touchstones are the most radically "out" and knotty moments of Norwegian post-jazz ensemble Supersilent, This Heat after realizing that Brise-Glace didnt pay them a penny in royalties, or Farmers Manual after extensive immersion in Mainliners back catalog. Fragments of the Marble Plan is a terrifying force of nature, a Rube Goldberg machine run amok, the sound of civilization atomizing into controlled chaos. Its so cold, its hellish. Although Aufgehoben feels your need for catharsis, they convince you that being ready to jump out of your skin is the new normal. If Aufgehoben prompted cliches, one would say that they "take no prisoners" on Fragments of the Marble Plan. This music is war-with all of the fascinating horrors and grisly casualties inherent in that endeavor. Get a helmet. Includes digital download coupon." - Holy Mountain.

Artist: AUFGEHOBEN
Title: Khora
Format: CD
Label: Holy Mountain
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"Khora is the fifth full-length by AUFGEHOBEN. Since the release of their previous album, Messidor, the group has somewhat relaxed their strict commitment to anonymity by allowing their names to be known and photos to be taken, and even playing a few well-received live shows. Messidor may have been mellower, but the progression displayed on Khora leads one to believe that full-on rock may be in the cards for this group, who have seemingly removed the elbow patches from their jackets and rolled up their sleeves for good. The album begins with three short pieces, sonic examples of texture meeting metal--like a djinn trapped in molten gold, attempting to burst free from his cage but only managing to express rage via infinie temporary sculptures ranging from the nightmares of the Muetter Museum to futuristic expressions of nature not yet captured by a conscious eye. The final track is 28 minutes of pure glory that will surely become one of noise rocks classics. Massively blown-out and beautifully recorded, "Jederfursich" lays down twin mirrors side by side as a model of infinity is allowed to morph through sounds that recall the energy of existence and the sand of time itself." - Holy Mountain

Artist: AUFGEHOBEN
Title: Messidor
Format: CD
Label: Holy Mountain
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"Messidor is the fourth album from the UKs AUFGEHOBEN, who record unformed improvised sounds and then, over a period of time, mix and mutate them into a not immediately identifiable form of raw instrumental rock noise. It is the discordant and hostile sound of mechanical beasts locked in a cage against their will via incredible levels of distortion, clattering percussion and a wide spectrum of overtones produced by scraped and scratched guitar strings. In time a sense of structure is revealed and the musicality of Messidor unfolds la New Directions Unit, Throbbing Gristle, This Heat, and post-Nite Flights Scott Walker. Past releases on Junior Meat and Riot Season. For fans of Takayanagi Masayuki." - Holy Mountain.

Artist: BASEBALL ASTROLOGER
Title: Famine of the Soul
Format: LP
Label: Holy Mountain
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"The Baseball Astrologer is Douglas Berman -- painter, astrologer, raconteur, chai-maker and dedicated walker. His ominous take is accompanied by the guitar and sounds of Steven Wray Lobdell (Davis Redford Triad, Faust) for an otherworldly post-game wrap-up where everything needs more orange, Neptune is in Capricorn, the casino of life is operating and where, even after death, we will have things to do. Darkness has no stare." - Holy Mountain. Early release on the label..

Artist: BIGOT, FRED
Title: Mono / Stereo
Format: CD
Label: Holy Mountain
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"On Mono/Stereo, FRED BIGOTs early "Panasonic meets rockabilly" sides are compiled and sequenced such that you cant help but mistake it for a 21th century version of KLFs "Chill Out"-except the country and Elvis references have been replaced by things like the sounds of attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion and C-beams that glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. You know, shit youd read about in a Samuel Delany book or something. Culled from two 12-inches of murky, minimalist proto-Schaeffel-beat, this CD also features rare outtakes from the full spectrum of heaviness. T-Rex-like rock-groove head-nod decadence expands the notion of stereo separation so far that the Memorex dude on the couch would be reduced to a puddle of flesh. How do you explain this stuff? You cant-it was from the future." - Holy Mountain.

Artist: BIRDS OF MAYA
Title: Volume 1
Format: LP
Label: Holy Mountain
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Its been said that Volume 1 is possibly the best rock release to come out of Philadelphia ever. While low on recording budget, attitude and pretension, BIRDS OF MAYA is high on stolen riffs and an energetic execution seldom seen outside of a Sunday ruling by Seamus McCaffery. Whether they are mangling riffs or stepping way out for fried boogie solos Birds of Maya oozes a dark chunky sludge with elements from all the colors of the classic rock rainbow. Do they really sound like "a GG Allin demo played through a megaphone?" Its a fair description and its certainly colorful, but it leaves out an awful lot. They are loud and they are chaotic, but they have way more groove than GG Allin could have ever imagined." - Holy Mountain"Birds of Maya did what countless garage rock geeks try and fail at: dust off 1968 and bring it back to life without making it look like museum piece. Bringing on the best of 60s power trios like Hendrix and Cream, a whiff of Blue Cheers bongwater, Black Sabbaths bass heavy paranoia, and Stooges bum-out, they were sloppy in all the right places. The jamming never got tired and held everyones rapt attention." -phawker.com

Artist: BLUES CONTROL
Title: Blues Control
Format: CD
Label: Holy Mountain
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"As you may or may not know, it can sometimes get pretty hairy working at a record store when some smelly, denim-clad dude walks in asking for the blues. If youre lucky, hes at least wearing a belt when you point him over to the records that are now relegated to an open spot on the floor. Thats just one scenario; who doesnt love those other blues fondly recalled with names like Blues Addicts and Blues Creation? And lets not forget that other queen of the blues -- Barbara from Just Farr a Laugh. Blues Control might just be the missing link between Van Halen and legendary experimentalist Henry Flynt. They are a duo. Lea Cho plays swank but grounded atmospheric keyboard parts (think Harold Budd), through which guitar player and manipulator of assorted junk-on-table Russ Waterhouse cuts, whittles and lays to waste. Its a hazy, spaced world that exists between fuzzed distortion, jabbering electronics, and a lazy, stay-in-bed psychedelic glaze, with rhythmic keyboards pulsating below it all a la a guy named Florian -- and you can choose which one you want. Oh yeah, I gotta mention the humid bikini-vibe that permeates the entire album." -Holy Mountain.

Artist: CLOUDLAND CANYON
Title: Fin Eaves
Format: LP
Label: Holy Mountain
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Originally an all-things-not-PANTHERS outlet for guitarist KIP ULHORN swapping musical ideas with SIMON WOJAN (now in KING KHAN AND HIS SHRINES), CLOUDLAND CANYON spent several years interpreting the more structurally-challenged examples of Krautrock, 70s psych of the drone-discovering variety, spots of unnerving (in a good way) improv here and there, and the wonderful 90s bands that started out as head-scratchers and ended up as innovators (first-wave Siltbreeze and Kranky highlights). Fin Eaves, the bands third full-length overall, is the inaugural album from Cloudland Canyon Phase II. Joined once again by significant-other KELLY ULHORN and a rotating cast of contributors, Kip has crafted a unique take on really, really goddamned loud and noisy. Most important are big, unavoidable pop hooks clawing their way out of a pulsating, throbbing thickness of guitar, bass, who-knows-what-type-of-effects and understated but omnipresent drumming. Imagine a Flying Saucer Attack foundation supporting noise on par with the first two Iran albums, or maybe even Jesu, with flowing vocals providing the major pop-hook components. LP includs a download." - Holy Mountain

Title: Silver Tongue Sisyphus
Format: LP
Label: Holy Mountain
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Recorded in Brooklyn, Germany, and Memphis, Silver Tongued Sisyphus follows CLOUDLAND CANYONs well-received Requiems Der Natur 2002-2004 released on the Tee Pee label. The albums secular calls to prayer with humming, looping, and loping ambient passages are interspersed with bursting rhythmic energy and agitated guitar lines. Pulling influences from the foggy ether of generations past, the band stakes their claim to the shadows of the cult musical culture of the late 1960s and early 1970s German underground scene. Live shows sound like unauthorized soundtracks to netherworld versions of The Swimmer or The Scorceror. Originally released on vinyl in an edition of 96 copies, Silver Tongued Sisyphus is now available once again. "... a stunning neo-psychedelic experience where the musical spirits of This Heat, Ash Ra Temple, and The Mahavishnu Orchestra are evoked, celebrated, and absorbed inside Uhlhorn and Wojans shifting cloud-formations of sound."-The Wire. Pressed on silver colored vinyl."- Holy Mountain

Artist: CLOUDLAND CANYON / LICHENS
Title: Exterminating Angel
Format: CD
Label: Holy Mountain
Country: USA
Price: $12.50
"This collaboration between the mellow, Memphis-meets-Germany duo of KIP ULHORN and SIMON WOJAN (aka CLOUDLAND CANYON) and Chicagos great rock n roll concierge and knower-of-mystics MR. ROBERT LOWE (aka LICHENS) was born on a trip to the West Coast of the United States a few years ago. Exterminating Angels single 30-minute track uses voice, guitar, samplers, and ARP synthesizer. Youve heard of the unmade science fiction epic whose would-be director proposed using different big-name progressive bands to perform a soundtrack for specific planets used in the script; here then are the sounds accompanying a spacecraft thats a combination Death Star and Taco Bell from the 1970s filled with cement Mayan temples and pyramids populated by large, snappily dressed reptilian beings. Every so often a bell goes off to break the spell and presents convincing evidence of this records special journey." -Holy Mountain.

Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"Grooves that confuse? CRAZY DREAMS BAND presents its guitar-free "thug pop" dirge with creeping crooning and brassless horn blasts. Like the best Giallo films, youll be as turned on as you are terrified. As tender as Coco Rosie, as brutal as Magik Markers, and as cool as Royal Trux Radio/Video vibe. Imagine if Bruce Springsteen and Martin Rev collaborated on songs for Patti Smith or Catherine Ribeiro. Channeled inner voices are expelled as cave anthems into neon text in Linear A, while bones poke through the skin atop a witchs brew of venomous sludge. Crazy Dreams Band is the urban tribal music that survives whatever "end is nigh" theory you choose. Theyre jamming this music outside the thunder dome, beneath the planet of the apes, and the day after tomorrow. Features members of RELIGIOUS KNIVES, LEXIE MOUNTAIN, MOUTHUS." -Holy Mountain

"War Dream, the second album from Baltimores CRAZY DREAMS BAND, is saturated with heaviness, psychedelia, pomp and grit, and noticeably lacking any nostalgia hang-ups. This rock music is refractory and satisfyingly off; put on a slide, manipulated and projected on a screen, or felt through a chain-link fence. Lost love, genocide and forgotten histories collide with raw-dog vocal thundering, slippery bass frequencies, adventurous percussion and seductive guitar ripples. Opener "Feels So Good" is a swirling dirge that could be a half-figured-out version of "Carouselambra"; "Awkward for Everyone" showcases recent addition Jorge Martins of Lisbon duo Fish & Sheep playing what sounds like a deflating blow-up Les Paul copy that actually has strings-youve got to hear the killer solo! The side-long "Life Is the Knife" is like a secret ritual from an unreleased Billy Jack sequel where he went back to Vietnam and built a temple that bled the purest opium. Here, JAKE FREEMANs adventurous sub-frequencies and NICK BENDERs saucy space wanderings shine on to break the dawn in half.  War Dream was recorded in three days at Beat Babies in Woodstock, MD, by CHRIS FREELAND (OXES, Frenemies, Long Live Death, Baltimore Rowdies Collective) with heaping platefuls of assistance from his brother MICKEY (Bow n Arrow, Height with Friends) and a cat that looked like a dirty snowman. Features NATE NELSON of MOUTHUS / RELIGIOUS KNIVES, JORGE MARTINS of FISH & SHEEP, and LEXIE MOUNTAIN of LEXIE MOUNTAIN BOYS. LP includes free digital download. " - Holy Mountain.

Artist: DJ ILYA MONOSOV AND THE 21ST CENTURY PUNKS
Title: New Music
Format: 12"
Label: Holy Mountain
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"Like the best bit of bacon wrapped around the best cut of beef pinned with a handcut toothpick, these four sets of collage arrive pressed to vinyl-eliminating the potential confusion about how many multiple media players have been running. Grunts and gurggles hump circuit-bent glitches in the way an inhuman claw might select a fannypack from the racks of Forever XXI. The fact is: only one hand is needed to clap on a drum machine. DJ ILYA MONOSOV & THE 21ST CENTURY PUNKS are too rhythmic to call noise, too chaotic to call music. This four-track 12-inch is nothing like Nurse With Wound while sounding like an American counterpart. Akin to Plunderphonics without obvious gags. Best guess, this is what spying Martians hear coming from Earth." - Holy Mountain.

Artist: DORONCO GUMO
Title: Old Punks
Format: LP
Label: Holy Mountain
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"DORONCO GUMO is led by DORONCO, a bass player most well known for his stints with LES RALLIZES DENUDES, SUISHOU NO FUNE, and KEIJI HAINO. Translated as "Mud Cloud," the name is actually poetic in a Zen beggar / wandering monk kind of way. On Old Punks, Doronco is joined by members of MAHER SHALAL HASH BAZ, a Frenchman, and an additional female vocalist. The band uses vocals, bassoon, and trumpet over a see-sawing battle of piano / guitar shrill balanced against warm rhythms. Their avant bar-rock style is not unlike Cinderellas Revenge recorded in the same studio as Vintage Violence with the conscious heartbreak of something like Even Serpents Shine. A bright-to-bummer-and-back-to-bright narrative flows throughout the albums nine songs. Resequenced to include an additional track not on the Japanese CD version, Old Punks nails down something for you didnt know needed to be nailed down. LP includes a free download" - Holy Mountain.

"Clear and Discovery were origianlly released as two companion CDRs by JAMES FERRARO (of the whole SKATERS / LAMBORGHINI CRYSTAL / 90120 / SPLASH / NIRVANA axis) and comprise the August 1974 (Taj-Mahal Travellers) of his discography. Both albums contain absolutely beautiful whirling hall-of-knives-style synth drone that makes one want to reference Klaus Schulze or Bobby Beausoleil. Clear bursts with flam beats and a cluster of melodies muffled like a calliope wrapped in a soggy tarp, while Discovery is comparable to Daft Punks album of the same name but played in reverse at 16 rpm through a boombox in a boiler room. These two records contain the sounds of pulling out with tapping beats of fluid dropped on a soft convertible top (open), much like those fictitious Giorgio Moroder songs for the upcoming Olympics in Atlantis or a reworking of that award-winning song from Revenge of the Nerds-or is it "Wonderwall"-into a theme for a future ski jump at the Great Pyramids.

Prior to the groups early 2009 conception, the pair studied electronic music at Oberlin College alongside their friends in Blondes and Teengirl Fantasy. Blondes member SAM HAAR also produced the Waters Edge EP, the groups first officially released recording. In Future Shuttles beautifully dense brew of psychedelic reprogramming, Tangerine Dream meets the KLF at the UFO Club, and their three-track debut layers distant chants, drones and throbbing, time-frozen strings on top of each other, swelling gradually to a pining, beautifully textured crescendo.

Label: Holy Mountain
Country: USA
Price: $14.50
"A brand new solo release from legendary poet, painter, Jews harpist, tattoo artist, and singer and lyricist of LUNGFISH, THE PUPILS and CONE OF LIGHT, DANIEL HIGGS. Higgs has an unparalleled presence in both body and voice, and this, combined with hypnotic repetition, gives the material on Ancestral Songs both a loose discipline and an immense yet serpentine power. Ancestral Songs is comprised of apocalyptic tunes, a banjo raag, mellifluous birdsong, and the sci-fi-sounding duet of a searing Jews harp and toy piano. "Are You of the Body?" brings out the electric tamboura tone and an accompanying acoustic guitar to melt the spine. A distorted motorik guitar riff propels Ancestral Songs to a close by focusing on the consistent tone and vibration that flows throughout the album." - Holy Mountain.

Atomic Yggdrasil Tarot, to Thrill Jockeys series of books collecting art and music. Metempsychotic Melodies continues to document Higgs rise as a solo performer. Raw picked acoustic guitar drones dominate Metempsychic Melodies as the instrumental "Universal Salutation" fades into the waking dream soliloquy of observation "Love Abides." "Leontocephaline Rhapsody" is a long waltzy drone with enough spooky atmosphere for one to think that it could have been recorded at Sunshine studios as there is a heavy Vogel vibe to the whole thing. Rumor has it engineer TIM GREEN told Higgs that he had to fade the track otherwise they were going to be arrested. Vocals return for the closing track "All Cherished Things" an epic about change, sound and transformation." -Holy Mountain.

Artist: HIGH WOLF
Title: Atlas Nation
Format: LP
Label: Holy Mountain
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Frances HIGH WOLF possesses a natural-born ability to produce tones most conducive to inducing transcendental states. Prolific without wearing out his welcome, the guitarist and effects box manipulator sets loose fervid streams of fever-dream drones. High Wolfs tracks sound as if theyve been sluicing since the beginning of time, siphoned for teasingly brief absorption before they shimmer off to the vanishing point. This elite droneur is one of the few musicians who could title a 7-inch A Guide to Healing without it coming off as an ironic gesture or a laughable boast. Atlas Nation-recorded in 2010 after a long trip to India and Nepal-deepens High Wolfs penetration into the mystic. It evokes an uneasy peace with a new breed of tribal psychedelia shorn of all hokey signifiers. "Fuji Descent" starts the album with what could be a languid, paradisiacal soundtrack to a scrapped Alejandro Jodorowsky film. "The Dawn of Man" is a stark, stoned processional burrowing into malarial climes where guitars squawk in ominous tongues while congas cave in chests and clear brush with a vengeance. "Raagini" magnifies and psychedelicizes Rapoons mantric, ritualistic hand-drum patter and tropical-forest drones while hinting at Don Cherrys jazz-raga peregrinations. High Wolf claims that "Haiti" was "recorded in a couple of hours [on] the day of the big earthquake in Haiti, so its the darkest / saddest High Wolf track ever." Its a fittingly miasmic, climactic threnody. Think of Atlas Nation as a surreal aural travelogue that takes a giant step beyond Jon Hassells "Fourth World" music-a humid milieu teeming with alien tonalities and oracular currents. Its as welcome as a new, improved entheogen on the streets." - Holy Mountain.

GRADY RUNYANs guitar playing is as fantastic, spacey and heavy as ever, as is SCOTT DERRs always-pertinent bass throb. Drummer and singer RUBIN FIBERGLASS is just perfect as a screaming maniac who can actually keep time while DOUG PEARSONs electronics consistently enhance the dominant power-trio rock that swirls in the sky like some kind of creation myth. In case you dont recognize the names, these guys were the prime movers and shakers behind the band MONOSHOCK. Does it sound like them?

"THE JULIE MITTENS are a Dutch power trio who specialize in extended improvisation at extreme volume. Inspired by John Coltranes The Olatunji Concert: The Last Live Recording and the knowledge that Fushitsusha has more to do with Thelonius Monk than Blue Cheer, guitarist AART-JAN SCHAKENBOS, bassist MICHAEL VAN DAM, and drummer LEO FABRIEK consistently wreak havoc with lavish, textural, speaker-blowing meltdown jams; they surge with psychedelic power and a stellar rhythm section on the four studio recordings here. "A kind of spiritual anarchy surfaces through the distorted bedlam, illuminating a full spectrum of frequencies which gives their most feverish moments the effect of coma-inducing psychical bliss landing somewhere between head banging and catatonia. These guys take it to edge and then push further out until there is literally no physical place left to go. Intense and just brilliant."-Todd Brooks, Foxy Digitalis.

Title: WeiBe Messe
Format: LP
Label: Holy Mountain
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"KLANGMUTATIONEN is composed of individuals who are quite possibly the only figures within Malaysias recent history of underground experimental/avant rock music-if there even was one. The word "Klangmutationen" means "Sound Mutations" or "Sound Changes." Klangmutationen (excluding American MR. G) hail from a small town on the west coast of Malaysia called Klang. Although no Teutonic connection has ever been found to exist between the German word and the origins of the towns name, it is nevertheless a happy coincidence for the group. Sonically, Klangmutationen marries the heavier and primitive side of Krautrock with the relentless ferocity of avant-jazz-in particular the style expressed by early FMP releases and the Japanese variety as chiefly approached by the Takayanagi/Abe school. Other influential elements are the countless avant jazz/rock outfits who have surfaced throughout the decades-particularly jazz ensembles with loud electric guitars: Last Exit, New Direction Unit, the Blue Humans (and the Arthur Doyle Quartet feat. Rudolph Grey), Music Revelation Ensemble, Tony Williams Lifetime, Moderne Nordeuropaeische Dorfmusik, Blauer Hirsch, The Giancarlo Nicolai Trio, Ray Russel, Derek Baileys Arcana, Sprawl, etc..." - Holy Mountain.

Artist: LA OTRACINA
Title: Blood Moon Riders
Format: LP
Label: Holy Mountain
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Dont be fooled by the King Diamond-style logo. This liberation of inverted progressive surf rock from psychedelic epithets plays like a fan-fiction account of Dick Dales meeting with Sonny Sharrock at Amon Dueuel IIs rehearsal space to discuss the "post-rock" epidemic. Unlike so many other instrumental soundtrack bands who employ ho-hum, choose-your-own-adventure tactics, LA OTRACINA sticks to the rails of their own twisting corkscrews and spine-snapping dives. This work does not lend itself to the standard-fare apathy of background music. Blood Moon Raiders is its own ride, with its own ticket, and the doors are locked after take-off. Pinch some headphones to your dome and situate the rest of your form into a beanbag as you navigate the fibrous landscape of a black-light poster. The tracks flow from a subtle new-age contingency to violent bouts with Laotian street gangs. Remember to pack a sack lunch and strap on a machete before mounting this electric buck-bot.

Title: Reality Has Got to Die
Format: Double LP
Label: Holy Mountain
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Since 2003, LA OTRACINA has been hell-bent on creating highly visionary music that melds sonic ideas from the outer reaches of heavy and weird. The Brooklyn group has released three full-length albums and twelve mini-albums, along with a slew of splits and compilation tracks on labels including Holy Mountain and band founder ADAM KRINEYs own Colour Sounds Recordings. La Otracinas new double-album is the first to feature drummer Kriney as lead vocalist, which catapults the trio into their most cohesive and focused release to date. Reality Has Got to Die showcases the bands mind-blowing ability to evoke the timeless space-rock magic of Hawkwind, the prog-improv wizardry of King Crimson, the fuck-yeah of early Metallica, and the synthesizer mind-warp of Tangerine Dream, all fused in a Krautrock state of mind. This musical journey through deep and heavy sound worlds envokes images of the emerald beyond and the darkest future alien universe, while also staying rooted in the tradition of rock n rolls ever-winding history. But dont confuse this for faux-New-Age blabber-this is street-wise and from the gut, straight from the minds of three men living their art, sacrificing everything and manifesting a boundless sphere of music, ideas, and imagery. LP version includes a download." - Holy Mountain.

Title: Tonal Eclipse of the One
Format: CD
Label: Holy Mountain
Country: USA
Price: $15.50
"La Otracina was formed in Brooklyn, NY, in the summer of 2003 by drummer Adam Kriney and guitarist Joshua Anzano (now of Tee Pee Records Titan) to penetrate the deepest and most surreal realms of psychedelia, prog, and Krautrock, with an emphasis on exploration. Taking heavy nods from psychedelic forefathers (Flower Travelin Band, Guru Guru, King Crimson, Neu!, Yes, Agitation Free, Blue Cheer, Amon Duul, etc.), their music is also rooted in a deep understanding and appreciation of free jazz/improvisation and the wizardry of minimalism - not to mention the extreme sounds of the Japanese underground. La Otracinas brew of cosmic music is a ride across the galaxy, a slice of magical lemon wedges, a rainbow of crystallized comet dust. La Otracina is Adam Kriney on drums, Ninni Morgia on electric guitar, and Jordon Schranz on electric bass. KindaMusik listed La Otracinas Love Love Love 2 CD as one of the top 20 best psychedelic albums of the new millennium, along with releases by Six Organs of Admittance, Bardo Pond, Ghost, and Tower Recordings." - Holy Mountain

Title: Power Hr
Format: CD
Label: Holy Mountain
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Yep, the bands name is LESBIAN (members of GOLGOTHAN SUNRISE, ASVA, and THE ABODOX). Why? Well, equally cool names like Black Sabbath, Venom and Pentagram were already taken. But also, the name Lesbian evokes pure, sexually charged freedom-and thats what rock music is all about. But enough about the name, lets talk about the Lesbian sound; its heavy, melodic, dramatic and dynamic. The Seattle-based quartets multifaceted debut album Power Hr heralds the birth of The New Wave of American Psychedelic Metal. Each of the albums four tracks shifts moods, dynamics and styles. In any given song, Lesbian deftly lunges from black metal-style blast-beat-and-16th-note-guitar-lines into 70s styled stoner rock riffing and then leaps into lush melodic passages reminiscent of Godspeed You Black Emperor!. The band blends the best elements of many styles of metal: doom, thrash, black, progressive and, yes, even good old "heavy" metal. Produced by RANDALL DUNN (Sunn O))), Boris, Earth) and packaged with artwork designed by STEPHEN OMALLEY." - Holy Mountain.

Elliptical, psychedelic rhythms merge with his trademark fat guitar signal to produce intense leads that demand comparison to an ocean on fire or planet-sized sunspots.

"LORDS OF FALCONRY are a rock group with a spectacular psychedelic edge. Songs blast green, inferno-like hard rock, funneling clouds and stripping away sludge, turning it into the waltz-like sound of mastodons stomping across the tundra. Classic heavy psych is alive in tracks that interweave soft voices and loud guitars that continuously pummel and enchant at every turn like a seven-headed cobra. C.S. Lewis had better watch his step! If psychedelia is quixotically naive, then LORDS OF FALCONRY is its 21st-century doppelganger or spectral double wise to the ways of the fallen world. In an era of organized play dates and close parental supervision, there are already enough people ready to cooperate. LORDS OF FALCONRY offers what is missing-real rock music. Formed in a quest to find the lost note, LORDS OF FALCONRY examines the intersection of a mystical crossroads between the fourth dimension and their own 3-D universe. Since both members are a bit insolent and rather unrealistic about much of reality, the fact that LORDS OF FALCONRY even exists is remarkable in and of itself.

With an excess of fuzz and wah noise they manage to combine all the best b-its of 70s psychedelic rock with the sonic attack of early Monster Magnet as they simultaneously enter the realm of heavy drone sludge rock. The sleeve of this album was crafted by ARIK ROPER who has also worked with likes of Sleep, Sunn O))), Comets on Fire and Arthur Magazine. Since forming at the begining of 2005 Mammatus have been playing regularly in their native town of Santa Cruz and in venues in San Fransisco, which has gathered them lots of praise and interest.

"MAMMATUS second album The Coast Explodes straddles the line between psychedelia and hard rock while introducing more progressive aspects. The music is heavily influenced by both the power and complexity of the natural world and the ongoing battles of light and darkness. "Excellent Swordfight" is a continuation of the same story told in the debuts epic "Dragon of the Deep." "Pierce the Darkness" explores being a light in a dark world. "The Changing Wind" is a pipe-led psychedelic folk tune that could have been sited by Ghosts Second Time Around and the shanga vibes of the forest in the Autumn. It unfurls into the title track which encapsulates the massive fury of the ocean. For fans of similar Holy Mountain artists Om, Lesbian, or Residual Echoes." - VHF.

"Utterances into a dictophone from a backdoor man hiding in the closet as the husband arrives home. The tales plod along in whispers, accompanied by defined guitar interplay, punctuated piano and snappy drums. Nearly every accent of guitar seems present. Fragile flamenco plucks, fuzz-to-the-front fumblings onto smooth lyrics of a detective attempting to resolve his own crimes. Vocals and acoustic guitar were recorded by GREG WEEKS. The arrangements, instrumentation and production were lovingly handled by JONATHAN WILSON. ILYA MONOSOV is a member of SHINING PATH and MONOSOV/SWIRNOFF DUO. While those musics were often meant to be visceral and joyous, Sailor Man presents whispers from one person to another, ruminative meditations on loss of places and people.

Variations on a Theme is comprised of three long songs employing a series of rhythmic chants whose cadence-like textural drive conveys flight. The albums numerous lyrics serve as symbolist vehicles to a state outside the field of time and space. Variations on a Theme is a series of vibrations and flow. The opening track,On The Mountain at Dawn is the thematic blueprint of the entire album; a transportive series of differentiated verse with sets of solid groove.

CHASNY doesnt remove anything from the scale either. His side, "Assyrian Blood," contains what seems to be subliminal fuzz/noise blips-like bugs hitting your windshield except that you can hear them.

"Underground cartoonist KEIZO MIYANISHI left behind one of the greatest documents from the 1980s. Self-released on his own Cupid & Psyche label, the single contains two songs, "Cortigiana dal velo" and "Mune o tutunde," which pair guitars and bass over some of the most tripped-out drum programming of all time. This psychedelic masterpiece ranks alongside the first White Stains 7-inch as one of the all-time greatest from the era. There is an outtake from these sessions, "Haha nareba koso," which is just as amazing, and the three songs would fit in a Terminal Boredom discussion about acid punk classics from Crawling Chaos to Chrome.  In 2007, ONNA reappeared and released a double-CDR with his partner, dancer BARAE. A track appeared on PSFs Tokyo Flashback 6, and the label also released an album titled Katawa in 2008. In addition to the studio material from the 7-inch, this CD includes two outtakes from Katawa, a solo piece from an obscure cassette release, and four live tracks from 1983 featuring a young MICHIO KURIHARA (WHITE HEAVEN, GHOST, BORIS) on second guitar. These are the first Kurihara recordings and come from a long-deleted double live Onna CD released in the early 1990s. This CD is packaged in a mini-LP sleeve with a booklet reproducing flyers, photos and posters from the era. Miyanishi and Onna have made significant but largely unnoticed contributions to the Japanese underground. Hopefully this release will vastly expand their profile worldwide." -Holy Mountain.

Well, you might wanna strap on a stronger carabiner before scaling these cliffs because youre more likely to discover pop gems than a stoned mystic in a cave. Organ is an anthem of Southern California patriotism with all the thrills of dragging in Lodi and peyote-munched soul-wandering in Silver Lake. This album is power-pop perfection, the Paisley Underground finally done right. Theres a big difference between playing every instrument and being a one-man band. Suffice it to say that ADAM PAYNE (RESIDUAL ECHOES) is a one-man band akin to Emitt Rhodes broadcast over solid-state transmitters. Maybe Grant Hart has the better voice while Bob Mould churned out better lyrics. What if the Kirkwoods melded into a creature that couldnt punch itself? Adam Payne, as one band, has made an LP that matches the chops and hooks of Captain Trundlows Sky Company or the bits of The Only Ones that are consistently lifted. The rumors that Payne was asked to produce the next Mudcrutch album have yet to be confirmed.

"After returning to their native state of California from a national tour, RESIDUAL ECHOES went in to the studio immediately, for their most cohesive effort yet. California is comprised of four songs. "White Cloud" and "Julie Patchouli" could be called "pop songs," and they are rock and roll to the fullest, but also ensconced in luscious, freak-out arrangements further enhanced by a select group of special guests. The second side of the LP is a suite dedicated to the state of California complete with references ranging from the construction of the railroads, the natural beauty of the land and the mating rituals of elephant seals. It ends with a distorted take on Los Angeles via UK-colored glasses with the title track which erupts into epic, pulsing, skronk-raunch riffs that cease to abate for the duration of the songs 10-minute length (all the while making references to summer, SST records, earthquakes and helicopters flying through the streets of Hollywood seeking out pillaging Slayer fans. Really. Its all there). The fourth release of deep-fried, DIY psych-rock from Santa Cruz guitarist ADAM PAYNE . For fans of Comets On Fire, Monoshock, and the Golden State." - Holy Mountain.

"In the grand tradition of albums consisting of sidelong tracks, The Middle Path ranks among the best. How great is it? On the level of the latest opus by Decimus (NNCKs Pat Murano), Tangerine Dreams Zeit and Ash Ra Tempels first LP. Taking collage rock to college, band leader Adam Payne and drummer Matthew Clark present their loftiest contribution yet to the out­rock canon. They let their freak flag fly high, but with a disciplined air. "Bush Pij / Sometimes" starts with a bulbous, stunt­rock charge that evokes first­four­albums Black Sabbath, Thin Lizzy and the heaviest parts of Focuss Hocus Pocus. Headbanging passages full of torrid, florid guitar solos and the kind of explosive drumming will make fans of Bill Ward and Keith Moon paradiddle all over themselves. Later, an ominous tolling redolent of Sonic Youths "Halloween" conjures a beautifully haunting, desolate comedown. What a trip. But this is mere warm­up for "A Marriage," the pinnacle of Residual Echoes career and one of 2013s most excellent and action ­packed tracks. Motorik bliss boogie with flute gently fluctuate in the airstream, bolstered by burbling bass, gull­cry guitar and nipple gongs. Around six­ and­ a ­half minutes in, things get incredibly anthemic in a Meat Puppets Up on the Sun way. Bonus: The guitar solo at the twelve minute mark flares and curlicues like Wayne Rogers on the worlds best trucker speed. Near the end, a strangulated feedback concerto carries the listener bewilderedly to the runoff groove. The Middle Path turns out to be the righteous route." - Holy Mountain

While their eponymous album exists in the world of post-SST black-clad psychedelia and noise, the group decided that they had gone far enough in said direction and realigned themselves. Chocolate Gasoline has a less harsh demeanor, a la Accelerator-era Royal Trux if the Stones-meter was set a little closer to "Under Cover of the Night" than "Dancin with Mr. D," especially on the opener, "Lonely Hearts Killer." The remaining tracks stretch out via influences ranging from hard dub, early PiL, no wave, block-banging hip hop, and kraut-dance/industrial, if one could imagine a version of Viva more about bikinis than white overalls.

The live favorite (and rare single) Somewhere Between has been redone and finalized in a fantastic new version featuring sitar by Comets on Fires Ethan Miller. The delicate acoustic strum of the album is challenged at the end of the record on the epic Only the Sun Knows, which features some extremely heavy electric destruction guitar from Mr. Miller before Chasny takes back control and lands the album on solid ground." - Holy Mountain.

Eight incredible tracks seamlessly blend powerful blues foot-stomp, backward interludes, strange strings feedback, dark, tabla-infused vibrations, and the amazing debut of Chasnys electric guitar as a lead instrument.Minds can only be blown by this album.

"Holy Mountain is beside itself with the limited edition reissue of Dust & Chimes by Six Organs of Admittance, Ben Chasnys second amazing, underground folk-psych project from behind Californias Redwood curtain. Heavy, acoustic guitar and mumbled vocalizations merge with out-there jamming in a style that has been compared to guys with LPs on Takoma, though Dust & Chimes is actually closer than anyone else is ever going to come to pantsing the first two Tyrannosaurus Rex albums. The sun is tanging, people. Really. - Holy Mountain. "After a brief, textural opening, Dust and Chimes rekindles the aplomb of "Visnu" with a mortal vs. guitar death dance called "Assyria"; it soon subsides into a calmer, introspective mood. The simple riffs are rooted in American folk, but suggestive of an Ottoman court. Six Organs stick with bare-bones song arrangements - most cuts are just dressed up with overdubbed chimes and bells, and three are direct-to-tape acoustic slices. The understated nature of the songs - often serving primarily as launch pads for extended acoustic extemporization - dictates that the album grows on the listener rather than convinces in a single play. The solos are delicate, subdued, as is the album as a whole. The structure to the songs may be too similar, but the mood is so pleasant that one barely notices, especially since the songs are broken up by other types of pieces." -Muckraker.

"Ben Chasny was on a holy roll when he laid down the eleven tracks on Dust and Chimes. It was 1998 and yall were floating on that Bill Clinton peace-and-prosperity bubble. Meanwhile, Chasny had dropped his self-titled debut LP earlier that year, and the cognoscenti and illuminati were pricking up their ears. Dust and Chimes announced the arrival of a brow-furrowed troubadour whose complex, morosely beautiful guitar playing didnt Basho you over the head with Fahey-isms. The three solo guitar tracks here contain quicksilver skeins of glinting acoustic work, recorded over a decade before the American Primitive style of playing would be of any interest to the indie world. Brilliant darkness and somber ecstasy abound, as Chasny ragas against the machine with a bold inventiveness. Elsewhere one may hear hints of Tyrannosaurus Rexs impish arboreal-folk charm and feathery Donovan-esque incantations -- reverent but not lightweight in the least. Now newly remastered, Dust and Chimes sounds like the work of a young sage wise beyond his tears." - Holy Mountain.

What really sets Chasny apart from the other modern Fahey worshipers is that Chasnys pantheon is willing to accept a wider array of other guitarists into the lexicon -- Peter Walker or Richard Youngs, for example -- not to mention the fact that he can stand the sound of a Stratocaster.

"In 1998 Ben Chasny self-released an LP of his "acoustic based project[ions]" under the name Six Organs of Admittance. The resulting five-song LP is a masterpiece of diverse elements using acoustic and electric guitars, a detuned violin, organ, electronics and koto. The material covers a lot of ground: theres an acid folk duet, an epic, three-part space suite, and two short concrète-like pieces that entice hidden memories of having bees in your mouth. The final sting is the magnificent chaos of "Race from Visnu"-- a nine-minute raga in which the strings of the acoustic guitar are battled by Chasny who ruthlessly punishes them for their ability to make sound. In addition, Chasny has also included two bonus tracks from an elusive 8-inch lathe-cut that was sold to cover the cost of a plane ticket. Holy Mountain is proud to be able to make this music available once again. Rare 1998 LP reissued on CD with two rarer bonus tracks, all on CD for the first time." - Holy Mountain.

"Originally released 20 years ago, Metallic Diseases is the most intense blast of guitar squalling heat never to find its proper audience. Truly unhinged at times ("Cans"), sublimely dreamlike and understated at others ("Shake Off"), this debut album fuses the best lineage of droning, hard-rocking sounds ("USA" makes a perfect amalgam of Suicides "Rocket USA" and the Stooges "1969") with a gestalt that pushes it right over the cliff, as "Western Man" is the kind of prophetic call to arms that Spacemen 3 tried to communicate through "Revolution" (itself a rewrite of "Black to Comm"). The few who heard this LP when it was released flipped out, as it deserved to be lauded along with its immediate precursors like Union Carbide Productions and Les Thugs-that rare blend of punk / noise / psych / groove that they just never made enough of to go around. Indeed, the LP was almost impossible to find Stateside at the time, leaving the few diehards to put it on want lists in MRR. Now, Holy Mountain and Tloen Uqbar have made it easy for everyone to simply step up to the altar and take a sip of this precious fluid while it is in season-one more time.

"Formed in 1999 as a duo of female guitarist PIRAKO KURENAI and male guitarist KAGEO, SUISHOU NO FUNE have been making some of the most charmingly chaotic dream music coming out of Japan. Their sound contains subcutaneous elements of no-wave energy mixed with psychedelic rock à la early Fushitsusha or Kousokuya. Other songs approach balladry with oddly beautiful twinned vocals and distorted guitars. They have performed around Tokyo with a list of people who could succinctly be described as everybody and were even invited to play Scotlands Weekend festival in 2005." -Holy Mountain

Artist: TIVOL
Title: Early Teeth
Format: LP
Label: Holy Mountain
Country: USA
Price: $14.50
"A collection of tracks from Finnish acid rock combo TIVOL. Four tracks of throbbing, violent and aggressive psychedelic rock that has nothing to do with subtlety. The bands already hypnotic material is further enhanced by screamed vocals that do not seem to emanate from this earth. Comprised of four tracks taken from two extremely limited edition CDRs released on the 267 Lattajjaaa and Time-Lag labels, all of which have been re-released with vastly improved sound quality and charming new artwork silkscreened by ROB FISK of The Free Porcupine Society." - Holy Mountain. "Freaking genius! I cant recommend this enough. For any and all fans of the Finnish underground, and psych/kraut in general, Tivol is a must own. Totally fucking excellent. 9/10"-Brad Rosen, Foxy Digitalis.

Artist: VOICE OF THE SEVEN THUNDERS
Title: S/T
Format: LP
Label: Holy Mountain
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Named after an 1870s tome of lectures on the Apocalypse, RICK TOMLINSONs VOICE OF THE SEVEN THUNDERS distills years of divergent musical exploration that followed his much-acclaimed VOICE OF THE SEVEN WOODS debut (Twisted Nerve, 2007). This time around, multi-instrumentalist and sound sculptor Tomlinson has assembled a full-fledged rock group. On their self-titled new release, infernal and primitive energies mingle with the bucolic reveries that won him previous acclaim. "Open Lighted Doorway" begins the album with a glimmer of the pastoral sounds that mark Tomlinsons earlier recordings, soaked in reverb as if corrupted by time; the monolithic "Kommune" follows with rolling guitars and rhythmic layers of primal percussion. "The Burning Mountain" erupts like flames from an Anatolian mirage-a tide from the East. The purely acoustic "Dry Leaves" offers the listener a momentary respite before "Dalaelven" breaks the spell with its vertiginous howl. This blinding acid haze is broken only by the stripped-down vocal harmonies of the introspective closer "Disappearances." Received a 9/10 rating in NME, a 4/5 rating in MOJO, and 4/5 rating in Uncut." -Holy Mountain

Artist: WHITE MANNA
Title: Dune Worship
Format: LP
Label: Holy Mountain
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"WHITE MANNA returns to prove just how deep their thrust is. Dune Worship, the Arcata, California, groups sophomore album, follows in the vein of last years self-titled debut, mining another batch of primal, outward-bound jams that reek of eternity. "Transformation" channels prime-time Hawkwind, evoking that sense of zooming headlong in endless flight with every atom buzzing. The staunch, towering riffs of "X Ray" are as foreboding as the next report from the EPA. This is White Mannas idea of a power ballad... until it accelerates in the last minute and leaves the listener blissfully charred. The speedy yet smooth "Im Comin Home" could be the recurring theme for that impossible sequel to Easy Rider, while the ten-minute "Illusion of Illusion" simmers with astral, meditative menace-a massive, billowing specimen of rock that glows like the earths inner core. The epic finale, "Solar Returns," is as majestic and momentous a climax as one would expect from these profound pros, whose singleness of purpose remains irrepressible and righteous. LP includes a download." -Holy Mountain.

"WHITE/LICHENS is the collaboration between MATT CLARK and JEREMY LEMOS heavy guitar drone group WHITE/LIGHT and ROBERT LOWEs LICHENS, who adds his voice, guitar and piano. While White/Lights name was inspired by the Velvets feedback-drenched "White Light/White Heat," they also claim as influences Earth 2, Fripp and Eno, and the guitar solo on the title track from Maggot Brain. The albums five tracks are named after demons from the Goetia, evoked and compelled into obedience by King Solomon, contained in a bronze vessel that was sealed with magic symbols. As a result, the music is alight with giant, pulsating fire storms of oceanic sound and shorter pieces that are the sonic equivalent to opening cans containing mechanical dreams. There is a magic to these sounds that surely goes back to that first electronic musician in Egypt over 2,000 years ago. The tools might be different but the spectacular results are the same." - Holy Mountain.

"... one LP what got a lotve play while I was gone was the debut by WHOS YOUR FAVORITE SON, GOD? and man, is it a keeper! Seeem live down at SXSW was great, but the record fans the flames of hybridized (post) prog-swoggle and (proto) metal-mania like just about nobody else. Whos Your Favorite Son, God? ably combine the dramatic and operatic pretense of Magma with the cool, aggressive delivery of MX-80 Sound and if youre thinkin "thats somethin I gotta hear," youre right. My mom (remember her?) says they sound like Mahavishnu Orchestra shouldve if they were men (once you hear this youll know what she means). Even the little Greek dude who delivers my beer opined "everything that Heavy The World isnt, Whos Your Favorite Son, God? is." And who am I to argue with a Greek? They invented civilization, buster! What have you ever done?"-Roland Woodbe, Siltblog.

Title: Dos
Format: CD
Label: Holy Mountain
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"How many music bloggers does it take to change a lightbulb? None, computer screens are backlit. Here we have a WOODEN SHJIPS record the world saw coming-not titled II, Sophomore, or Second, but Dos. The group maintains its strident pace like a silverfish rave in perfectly folded bedsheets, with more bounce per ounce as life goes jogging with bopping heads and digging heels. Five numbers whose style might fit as cozily at La Cave in 1968 as at Ibiza in 1988. Natural loops with just enough vocals take you where the khakis and the cut-offs play together. Dos sounds off as the inauguration speech of a group accepting the minimalist psych bop crown that once adorned the likes of Neu and Loop. If possible, their brand of whipping fuzz hooks have gotten groovier. Wooden Shjips debut album and various singles have established them as one of the best psych bands to inhabit this earthly realm. LP version to follow." -Holy Mountain

Title: Megafauna

Price: $15.00
"Understand this: Yoga dispenses a sinister frailty of howling swells in hissing static that combusts into crawling shock heaps, to the effect of Mayhem performing Twin Peaks incidentals in a prairie recorded by The KLF. A brief description casts them as black metals answer to Throbbing Gristle. The texture-based rendering of their compositions sails them on a strange sea between song and sound effect as it bobs along the waves like a dead mans bottled message. Aspects of Goblin rehearsals in dead hills is interrupted as Monster Zero carves mountain sides with lightning breath. Oscillating leads pummel into churning riffs as if "Caledonia" was performed in an echo chamber near Lodi, New Jersey. The extrinsic properties of this work may result in disambiguation." - Holy Mountain. Features Sam Meringue (aka Explorers (Not Not Fun), James Ferraros 90210 etc).

Title: 2
Format: CD
Label: Holy Mountain
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"ZDRASTVOOTIEs 2 is a perplexing album. It folds the far corners of some of the worlds most out-there progressive rock with deep, deliberate singer-songwriter type vocals and lyrics. It is both a collection of confusing, dark and fragmented meditations and defiantly odd music, yet it is far more accessible and playful than one would expect. The recorded debut of DREW ADAMs vocals is imposing and grand-he sings like a crooner. The album is still marked by the groups gifts as songwriters and players, as the songs are disjointed and the arrangements abrasive. The material is achingly beautiful, and lovely melodies appear throughout the release. This new album will sound, to most, like no other music on Earth." - Holy Mountain.

III is the spectacular new album from Portlands kings of angular progressive songcraft. The high point of the LP is the groups masterful take on the folk standard "Golden Ring Around the Susan Girl" which sounds like it was filtered through Sonny Sharrocks "Black Woman." The LP was pressed in an edition of 350 copies to be sold on the bands first tour of the United States and Canada. Silkscreened covers and a fully illustrated comic book insert complete the package." - Holy Mountain.

"A few years ago Santa Cruz avant-rock group ZDRASTVOOTIE decided to ditch their vocalist and concentrate on the unique interplay they had begun to achieve with two guitars and drums. This new configuration recorded an album of material that was eventually scrapped because their sound had morphed into something different by the time everything was ready to go. Zdrastvootie are currently a very focused entity, with increasingly complex songs a la King Crimson, Hampton Grease Band or Doc at the Radar Station-era Magic Band. While they have recently added a bassist, and guitar-player DREW ADAMS has begun to sing, Zdrastvootie still orbits this zone and will continue to until you are very aware that they practice all the time." - Holy Mountain.

Gone is full of l-o-n-g jams that bring to mind such wild ones as German Oak, Magic Muscle and foggy dreams of The Stooges moonlighting as a Hawkwind tribute band during the off season. Zodiacs burn a heavy trail to the days when outlaw biker clubs roasted and consumed whole horses in celebration of the wild life. Get your wings!" - Holy Mountain.

"A lot of people mention the "L" word when talking (or whispering) about Asa Osborne. Its not Lungfish were talking about here (he was their guitar player), but rather "Levine," as in Keith Levine. It seems Mr. Osborne witnessed a fight with Keith Levine as one of the combatants. Levine subsequently lost a tooth and--this is the strange part--Osborne grabbed it and has used the tooth as a guitar pick ever since. Weird.  Zomes self-titled album is full of beautiful Seesselberg-sized chunks of loop-like melodies that effervesce while Osborne brings them to life. There is a cinematic quality to the material here that recalls "library music," East German Indianerfilmen soundtracks, and even Blues Control at their most humid." - Holy Mountain.
