Artist: AMERICAN BAND
Title: Low Friction
Format: LP
Label: Hot Releases
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"2nd full-length collaboration between Lee Counts, Matt Franco (of Air Conditioning, Holy Family Parish) and Jason Crumer -- power tools on scrap metal, and, by the way, one of the rawest light shows of any band ever (sheets and sheets of sparks). This record is more spare and moody than their first; lush/industrial, elegiac sanders and spareness building up to and blasted away by the brutal second side. 500 copies." -Hot Releases

Artist: BIANCHI, MAURIZIO
Title: Armaghedon
Format: LP
Label: Hot Releases
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Reissue of the 1984 classic. Both sides mesmerizing time benders, ominous and beautific. This exuberant opus was conceived about one year in advance, during my final achievement to the so-called bionic music. Originally was finalized for an apologetic movie directed by myself, but this cardiotonic objective was fallen into demagnetizated oblivion. Remained just the palpitating gait of this apocalyptic soundtrack. -- M.B."

Price: $16.00
"Reissue of a February 1980 decomposition from the Italian industrial forereunner. Halting tape cut-ups of the classical score from the film. One of the strangest M.B. recordings! Pro-printed jacket." -Hot Releases

Format: LP
Label: Hot Releases
Country: USA
Price: $15.00

SOLD OUT

Artist: BOYZONE
Title: Menarche
Format: LP
Label: Hot Releases
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"A witchy mosaic of psychedelic haunted tape jams, exposed circuit melodies, EVP, Casio moaning, deteriorating cassette playback, ebbing dreamy confusion and harshness coalescing into a final metal echo from Southern U.S. live improv freak-out / dance / performance / noise ensemble featuring members of Relay for Death, Secret Boyfriend, and Jeff Rehnlund. Hand pasted art, 300 copies." - Hot Releases.

Artist: HORAFLORA/SECRET BOYFRIEND
Title: Split
Format: LP
Label: Hot Releases
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"I met Raub of Horaflora during his tour down from New England when he had his entire set-up on a bicycle. Using a clever and economical system that included a hand drum, trumpet mouth piece, balloon, computer sub-woofer, transducers, hand-held tape recorders and various found objects, he created an immersive shuddering meadow mecha-organic sound environment. Empty cans and scrap metal rattled to the same pulse, balloons exhaled lost-in-the-fog tones on the taut drum skin, tapes whirred weird in their lascivious carriage in the front and back : the sum being a barnyard of coldly throbbing sounds from all angles harmonizing with the resident frogs and insects. Two years later we have this, the vinyl debut of both Horaflora and Secret Boyfriend. On his side, Raub wrings pleasingly alien sounds from his systems - taken in this instance from a live session with Andrea Williams on KALX. The electro-acoustic room-rattling is crisply recorded but still very inscrutable ... strange sounds mingling spatially guided by unseen hands of a restless poltergiest . . . The Secret Boyfriend side begins stunned in the still room where Horaflora left us, oozes and flirts with a baroque chamber mentality giving away to exquisite / blown speaker melodies and drooling song-form, morbid and tender. A sense of calm and peripheral melancholy is held, abrasion dialed back. One quarter alive in a cold apartment for twenty years. The windows are open. Pro-printed jackets, 300 copies." -Hot Releases

Artist: JEWELL, RYAN
Title: Eschew Obfuscation; Espouse Elucidation
Format: LP
Label: Hot Releases
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"The long-awaited first full-length LP from conservatory-educated Columbus OH free-improv and jazz percussionist and noise-maker Jewell is a mammoth statement. Side A is one long stereo-melting, ear-bending composition comprised of sounds recorded over the span of a decade, evoking the best sense shock of harsh noise, except with organic sounds manipulated with the class and finesse of Pierre Henry. Side B focuses on the deep drone/long tones wrought with patience and intensity from a snare -- a beautiful compliment to the classy frenzy of the first half. After collaborations with the likes of Spencer Yeh, Mike Shiflet, Wasteland Jazz Unity, Graveyards, Envenomist, Pink Reason, Psychedelic Horseshit, and Tatsuya Nakatani, this solo wax is a serious treat. Mastered by Bhob Rainey, with art by Dylan Nyoukis. 300 copies, pro-printed art." -Hot Releases
SOLD OUT

Artist: REHNLUND, JEFF
Title: Gangnam Basement
Format: LP
Label: Hot Releases
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"A completely idiosyncratic and slippery album of honey religious field recordings, noise, tape collage with sprinklings of nitrous-damaged pop recorded during a year abroad in Korea. Highly listenable, Jeff has it going on. Handmade art, 300 copies. Paste-on front and spray-painted back cover." -Hot Releases

Artist: REHNLUND, JEFF
Title: Smoke From The Mirror
Format: LP
Label: Hot Releases
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Mostly recorded during a year in Las Cruces, New Mexico with a reverb unit and other gear found in a spider- and cat-infested geodesic dome in the desert. Smoke is a mottled sound diary of sweltering mutant pop, distressed voices, sweaty-dense-and-deep drone in a wider, darker sky, wretching cassettes, sparse stone garden melody, gamelan, plus a lengthy field recording of an exorcism in India that was interrupted by a wandering bull. All tracks evoke an overwhelming sense of heat and empty space, life and death, distance, isolation -- carved with broader, more direct gestures than Jeffs previous releases, but still with flourishes of his trademark bewildering, confusing sonic style. Pro-printed jacket, 300 copies." -Hot Releases

Artist: RUSSIAN TSARLAG
Title: Open Caskets
Format: LP
Label: Hot Releases
Country: USA
Price: $14.00

Artist: RUSSIAN TSARLAG/SECRET BOYFRIEND
Title: Split
Format: LP
Label: Hot Releases
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Long in the works split LP finally made available. Two complimentary sides of otherworldly, out-of-time romantic/downer tunes evocative of a woman descending a glass staircase. An early review from P Maier: Grace is a distant glimmer, but at least champagne is in hand. This split is definitely needed by all." -Hot Releases.
SOLD OUT

Artist: TAZARTES, GHEDALIA
Title: Voyage a lOmbre
Format: LP
Label: Hot Releases
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Reissue of the CD originally released by Demosaurus in 1997, paired down to a lean LP length with the approval of the artist. This edition is an instance of the recorded material translating beautifully to the vinyl format." -Hot Releases.
SOLD OUT

Artist: UNICORN HARD-ON/CONTAINER
Title: Split
Format: LP
Label: Hot Releases
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Killer and complimentary split from two of the US undergrounds finest. A vital document of this curious shift from noise to beats in the subterranean circuits. Two slammers with disorienting-ly haunted vox from Unicorn Hard-On, one epic slab of surgical techno from Container." -Hot Releases.

Artist: VVAQRT
Title: Than On Eother And You Have 0 Answers
Format: LP
Label: Hot Releases
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"VVAQRT (say Vak-art or Vak-ert) are a dark, crumbling consciousness minimal synth pop duo from Saxapahaw, NC. Well-recorded, tightly-wound succinct synth sculptures are coupled with ornately mangled text, evoking a mind forcefed too much useless information that has begun to froth and die. This LP is party music for the modern apocalypse... were very proud of this one, the record with the strongest, bitterest pop appeal that weve released so far. Definitely not witch-house. Pro-printed jackets." -Hot Releases
