Artist: ASTOR
Title: Alcor
Format: LP
Label: Kye
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"Alcor is the debut LP by a new voice from the Australian wilderness. Hailing from Ferntree Gully, Victoria, the music of Astor has thus far been appreciated only via a string of barely-distributed CDRs. Alcor gathers together the prime of these micro-editions and presents the material as a seductive and puzzling new whole. Field recordings of humble organic activity bend against a foundation of discreetly processed electronics/piano, creating sonorities that are as undefinable as they are unforgettable. Alcor is the ideal LP for fans of fringe position electro-acoustic study, Delphic audio confusion, or anyone who pines for the days when Small Cruel Party still roamed the earth. Mastered by Graham Lambkin, Alcor arrives in a full color high gloss sleeve, in an edition of 350 copies." - Kye.

Title: Inland
Format: LP
Label: Kye
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Kye is proud to present Inland, the new LP by Clapton-based Astor. Advancing the cause of 2012s Alcor LP, Inland finds Mark Harwood and sometime collaborator Maja Larsson further complicating reason with dark and circuitous audio constructs. Taking its inspiration from Gerard Murnanes 1988 novel of the same name, Inland explores a personalized perception of space, both real and imagined, returning a fabricated dreamworld which teases logic and tricks the ear. Conceived with piano, bells, tapes, gong, autoharp, hammer, t.v., organ, and dry ice pellets, Inland cuts the face of expectation to expose a 10 part fractal sonic geography, governed by its own laws, and flushed with all the beauty and horror of the natural world. Inland arrives in a full color, high gloss sleeve, in an edition of 400 copies." - Kye.

Artist: BASSETT, MARCIA & SAMARA LUBELSKI
Title: Sunday Night, Sunday Afternoon
Format: LP
Label: Kye
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Sunday Night, Sunday Afternoon is the debut LP by the duo of Marcia Bassett and Samara Lubelski. Both musicians have played crucial roles in the development of underground sound over the last 20 years, tinting the broad waters of abstract folk, chromatic noise and long form drone, and cementing themselves as cornerstone artists in the process. Sunday Night, Sunday Afternoon is the perfect synthesis of Bassett and Lubelskis individual crafts - two sidelong forays into deep black string meditation that hang in the air like ghosts on Ludlow Street. Sunday Night, Sunday Afternoon was recorded/mixed by Barry Weisblat in 2010 in Brooklyn, NY, and arrives in a high gloss monochrome sleeve, in an edition of 500 copies." -Kye.

This is music in the moment, walking naked on a razors edge. The American Center is long gone and in 2015 The City of Light strives for a new meaning in a time of great challenge. The world has changed and we all walk naked on a razors edge. (Joe McPhee, 2016).

"the bowles were a briefly extant australian trio of matthew p. hopkins, christopher schueler (r.i.p.) and mary macdougal. they came together in 2009 and plied their craft across the patchwork of warehouses, attics and d.i.y. artspaces connecting the blue mountains of new south wales to inner city sydney before imploding later that same year. although their time with us was short, the bowles creative bloom was towering and unforgettable. the bowles ep presents a six track overview of the groups modus operandi, recorded live to dictophone in sydney. murky cassette montages, strung out 3am ballads and exquisite corpse-style constructs unify and define an original voice that few have heard, until now. the bowles ep arrives in a pro-printed full color sleeve sporting mary macdougals painting getting together, and includes a full color bowles postcard, in a limited edition of 350 copies." -Kye.

Label: Kye
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"This is it. The debut release by Call Back The Giants, the new project by former Shadow Ring keyboard governor Tim Goss. Two helpings of brooding synth melodrama, delivered in classic home studio style. These are songs that speak of internal struggle, of consoling brutality, of a fantasy world where the author is king. For fans of Jasun Martz, Dr. Jeff Meldrum, Whitehouse, Lighthouse/"Lindus" and the many songs Goss has privately sung across the years. May these songs now be heard. Arrives in one of three sleeve designs, each exposing a variant of the yeti/sasquatch profile, in a hand-numbered edition of just 100 copies. So this is it. This is the time." - KYE.

Set aboard the cruise liner of the same name, The Marianne charts the epic voyage of Capt Fletcher and his patrons as they passage across the sour ocean, through a prism of supernature and on toward an uncertain end.

Title: The Rising
Format: LP
Label: Kye
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Call Back The Giants first surprised and delighted the listening world in 2010, with their warmly-received eponymous debut album. Since that time, the duo of Tim Goss and Chloe Mutter have been locked in perfect isolation, teasing every nuance of their sound into sharp focus. The Rising presents the results of their toil, exposing Call Back The Giants as true masters of cryptic intent. Homespun keyboard minimalism, wavering teenage laments, and foreboding pronouncements of doom, synthesize into new, original matrices of thought. The Rising also introduces the guitar heroics of some-time third member, Big Rob Stewart, who lays down the law in crude basement style. The Rising is a masterpiece of ambition, that meets the expectations of its audience head on. The Rising arrives in a full-color, high gloss sleeve, with photography by Krysztoff Dorion, in an edition of 1000." -KYE.

Title: OM Entering. and Once Enterd
Format: LP
Label: Kye
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"The latest LP from veteran fluxus composer Philip Corner. OM Entering. and Once Enterd comprises four previously unreleased recordings with the Barton Workshop, taken from performances in the Netherlands, and South Korea, between 2000-2007. OM ENTRANCE. OM ENTERTRANCE. which one does....because the performance is a real "passage from the material to the spiritual" unless the "real" world is just as spiritual already which i like to think it is. As perhaps an everyday awareness is already to be entranced which i have been told it is, really. To the facts: musicians coming-in already the performance of everything has to be done to get ready from unpacking to tuning and all that is done in the concentrated and exalted spirit of real music. Multiplicity moves noise to instrument possibilities with virtuosity show-offs slowing down to a perfect tuning in a quiet circle from where there is nowhere else to go but the sustaining of a quiet long tone. My old friend and colleague also great composer Jim Fulkerson is there as he has be, as he was even at the first performance way back must be almost 50 years by now joining the Creative Associates at the University of Buffalo on his initiative as likewise these performances in Holland with his group he calls The Barton Workshop and for sure he is there playing trombone too. The movement from SANG/TEH (SITUATIONS). Guard duty in a cold Korean winter. This piece was a major turning-point in my work. My life too you-could-say. "Of Ancient Times and Modern Sounds" i wrote then: a better world---much much better---than being in the American Army. The heterophonic melody-only texture learned from their "Ah Ahk" court music ("Soo Je Chun" the most beautiful music in the history of the world!) imposed on a thoroughly modern chromatic note structure. Occidental instruments absorbing the traditions of subtle sound colours so-long absent from the West. Public performance in Seoul. That must have been the Spring of 1961 just before they "shipped me out", to bring all that back home. Before that the wonderful and exceptional opportunity to "run through" some of it with the indigenous instruments of the Koog Ahk Wun (National Music Institute) thanks to the cultural open-mindedness of the classical kayageum master Byungki Hwang. And Jim has not only played the 3rd movement often, but brought if back to Korea once at the Pan Music Festival. But my long-waiting-for performance in Korea on native instruments has yet to take place. The CHOPIN PRELUDE piece is one of two, reworking passages from his D Major Prelude for piano, and a part of the "as a revelation" series which "looks into" moments from the classics which usually go by too fast. Begun with Mozart, the series has "got a lot of mileage" out of Satie, as well as including Buxtehude, Bach, Rimsky-Korsakoff, Verdi, Ives, Berlioz,, and others." - Philip Corner, 2015.

Price: $16.00
"Kye is pleased to announce the release of Crete Soundies, the major new work by Moniek Darge, and the follow-up to last years Soundies (1980-2001) CD. Crete Soundies presents three new pieces -- Magnesia (2006), Anemos (2007) and East Crete (2008-2009). These works were born from two years of Levka Ori sound research, and an additional year in east Crete in collaboration with fellow sound artist Francoise Vanhecke. Moniek Darge was born in Bruges, 1952 and studied music theory and violin at the Music Conservatory of Bruges, painting at the Ghent Royal Academy of Fine Arts; Art History, Philosophy and Anthropology at the University of Ghent, Belgium. She is active as composer, violinist, performer and audio artist and has built light and soundsculptures, installations, musical instruments and for many years has been constructing a series of alternative music boxes, with which she also performs. Darge has specialised in both soundscapes and live-art performances in which visual and musical aspects are combined and in interactional improvisation on violin. Since 1970 she has performed around the world and has been active on stage, first with the Logos Ensemble, then with Logos Duo (together with Godfired-Willem Raes), and more recently with the M&M robot ensemble. She also founded Logos Women, a small group specialised in intermedia improvisations performing their own compositions for various instruments, voices and music boxes.

She is most widely recognized as one half of the pioneering new music group Logos Duo alongside her partner Godfried-Willem Raes. The Logos Duo, which operates under the umbrella of the Logos Foundation, have been celebrated both at home in their native Gent, Belgium and on the international stage. They have performed their work in countries as diverse as Brazil, New Zealand, Japan and the US.

Title: Sounds Of Sacred Places
Format: CD
Label: Kye
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"New 2011 edition of this cornerstone sound art collection, originally published in 1987 on LP by Igloo. "In most ethnic cultures, sacred places serve an important social function. The qualities, typical of these places, explain to western people the magic magnetism of these "holy grounds". During our international Logos Duo concert tours we have had the opportunity to visit quite a few of these places. Uluru, the "Shadowgiving Mountain" of the Aborigines, better known under its western name of Ayers Rock (Australia), impressed us more than any other. The presence of water and an enormous monolith in the midst of the vast desert plain is given as an explanation for its magical appeal. But to the Aborigines, each little place of the rock contains tracks of their ancestors, the "Dreamtime People", who live in this mountain and speak to them in the sounds of the winds howling through the crevasses and rockholes. Uluru is also the dwelling-place of the "World Serpent", the most powerful totem shared by the surrounding tribes. Sounds of Sacred Places attempts to transform the listener into a living witness of the sounds of similar places, not far away in any specific ethnic culture, but in Flanders". (Moniek Darge, 1987). Sounds of Sacred Places arrives in a high gloss 4-panel digipak with accompanying 16 page booklet of photos and notes. Remastered from the original tapes by Moniek Darge at the Logos Foundation, Gent. Edition of 500." - KYE.

Title: Indian Soundies
Format: CD
Label: Kye
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Kye and Penultimate Press are very proud to present a collaborative release from Moniek Darge (Belgium) and Graham Lambkin (UK). "I have always been interested in sounds in general. When reading and teaching about the futurists, I fully agreed that the sound of engines and machines could be as interesting as the sound produced by musical instruments. But not only industrial sounds fascinate me - I also find the sounds of nature very inspiring. What I love to do is make soundscapes, and I try to give an impression of a certain space. I am fascinated by a lot of so-called sacred places in the world, in etnic cultures, but also in our own cities. I try to recall the atmosphere of such a place, the quietness, the subtile sounds, or simply whats happening. I started with places in Ghent, where I live, and little by little – I have always loved to travel – I began to think - hé, it would be nice to do the same thing at different places on earth. So I started to go to different countries with the purpose of making soundscapes. With our Logos Duo, ever since 1980, I was already travelling around the world to give concerts, and thus I already collected sounds from all continents. Lately Ive been traveling to India and recording the sounds typical in certain regions. You will hear sounds of traffic, of religious ceremonies, of commercial music, mixed with merchants voices, nature sounds. I asked my friend Graham Lambkin to join me in the creation of these Indian soundscapes. We had previously performed Tamil Nadu and an early version of Indian Weather Trap together in concert at Issue Project Room, NYC, 2011 alongside our friend Françoise Vanhecke. I further invited Graham to make his own Indian soundscape in his own style, using materials gathered online, to bring our CD to a close. So just sit back quietly and enjoy. Lets all travel together on the wings of sound." - Moniek Darge.  Indian Soundies arrives in a deluxe full-color 6 panel digipack, in a limited edition of 400 copies." - Kye.

Title: Farm Stories
Format: LP
Label: Kye
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Kye is proud to announce the release of Farm Stories, the second archival collection from the extinct duo of Adris Hoyos and Graham Lambkin. Unlike the hermetic Rise of Elklink LP, Farm Stories features creative use of the great outdoors, recorded in 2002 at Green Chimneys rehabilitation center for children and animals, in Brewster, NY. We hear pigs, birds, thunder, cows, children, their parents, and planes. These recordings were then fed through a mixing board where Lambkin added Kurzweil K2500 synth, and Hoyos added electric guitar and FX. The results were made into a private run CDR that was given away at Christmas to friends. This 2015 edition of Farm Stories has been restored from the original cassettes by Graham Lambkin and fully remastered by Jason Lescalleet at Glistening Labs. Farm Stories arrives in a full color high gloss sleeve that replicates the Elklink Christmas card of 2002 in an edition of 500 copies." - Kye.

Format: LP
Label: Kye
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"The Rise of Elklink originally appeared as a cassette on the storied Polyamory label in 1999. Behind the ambiguous moniker lurked core Shadow Ring member Graham Lambkin, aided by Adris Hoyos with a cameo from fellow Shadow Ring bandmate Tim Goss. Although The Rise of Elklink was produced in tandum with The Shadow Rings Lindus LP, the two projects were different in intent. Song form and narration are replaced by walls of quiet, crumbling vocal concrete, meaningless stoned monologues and adjacent audio seepage, captured to 4-track in the backroom of a small Cuban crèche in Miami FL. This LP reissue restores all six tracks from the original cassette, and adds the Elklink contribution to the Colour In Absence Sound CD comp from the same year. Lovingly remastered by Jason Lescalleet at Glistening Labs, The Rise of Elklink arrives in a sleeve design based on the original j-card with a deluxe insert reproducing Brad Sonders classic period review, in a hand-numbered edition of 500 copies." -KYE.

Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"David Payne began building his Fossils empire back in 2004. Since that time Fossils has colonized the underground circuit with a steady flow of ultra-limited tapes/cdrs, many of them through Davids own Middle James Co imprint. The Fossils sound is always one of formless despair. Churning low-grade electronics, primitive tape manipulations, and an aura of stoned reverie are all genuine signatures. Kye is pleased to offer Fossils a rare vinyl outing, showcasing two classic new works. The Golden Door delivers a lo-fi elevation over grey clouds of looping ferric tape, whilst War Puzzle could have been swept off the floor at Cold Storage - a strange and paranoid collage of crumpled guitar and collapsing sine waves. With both pieces edited/mixed by Graham Lambkin and mastered by Jason Lescalleet, this is Fossils like youve never heard them before. The Golden Door arrives in one of three Lambkin-designed sleeves - each depicting the back of someones head, in a hand-numbered edition of only 100 copies. Dig in." -KYE

Title: Cryptography

Price: $15.00
"Helm is the ambiguous solo moniker of London-based sound architect Luke Younger. Although, perhaps best known as one half of the pioneering avant-drone outfit Birds of Delay, it is in the more esoteric work of Helm that Lukes art takes on its most radical shape. 2010s debut LP To An End confirmed that in an age of fleeting trends and fly-by-night fancies, there were still a few old souls prepared to knuckle down and deliver the goods that people want to receive. Cryptography carries forward that noble mindset, presenting a new five-part suite of expertly rendered electro-acoustic study. Using processed piano, Casio MT-40, cymbal and guitar strings Cryptography steers the Helm sound through a melange of fringe territories: glacial drone meditations, reconfigured gamelan clusters, and howling walls of organized feedback, all coalesced in classic UK post-industrial fashion. Indeed, had it been conceived of 30 years prior, it would be easy to imagine Cryptography winning a seat in the United Dairies, or Dom America catalog, such is its commitment to homemade exploratory zeal. Cryptography arrives in a full color sleeve, with insert, in a hand-numbered edition of 400 copies." -Kye.

"Kye is proud to announce the release of Rules Of The Universe, a fully authorized anthology of archival audio work by the renowned Dutch artist Anton Heyboer (1924-2005). Heyboers stature in visual arts is well known and internationally celebrated, but documentation of his audio work is scant and difficult to locate. Heyboers only previous vinyl release - 1976s ill-fated She And She As One LP (EMI) introduced a music so resolutely personal and uncommercial in nature that EMI ordered the unsold bulk of the pressing withdrawn and destroyed. Further recordings of Heyboers anomalous music eventually trickled out via a string of private press micro-edition CDs/CDRs through the Anton Heyboer Foundation in the 1990s. Released with full approval from VOF Heyboer and overseen by Lotti Heyboer, Rules Of The Universe draws from over seven hours of surviving archival tapes, restoring the cream of the CDR editions and supplementing it with a selection of previously unheard tracks. Rules Of The Universe offers a fresh reappraisal of a lesser-known - but no less important field of creativity from one of the 20th Centurys most original artistic minds. Rules Of The Universe arrives in a full color high gloss gatefold sleeve, with an accompanying fold-out color poster, in an edition of 500 copies." -Kye.

Music From The Impossible Salon finds the IFCO sound honed into eight elegant settings that variously combine piano, synth, radio, trombone, organ, gong and voice. Using minimal, yet striking gestures, Music From The Impossible Salon reveals itself to be a dusky pleasure center, where the jaded listener can find discreet interuption from the horrors of the day. Recorded at Wunderwaffen Studios, Nov/Dec 2010, and expertly mastered by Grammy-nominated producer Zupe, Music From The Impossible Salon allows the raw essence of IFCO to ring out like never before. Housed in a Foust/Borecky designed sleeve, the "charming phenomenon" that is Music From The Impossible Salon is now ready to greet its audience." - KYE.

Title: The Annihilating Light
Format: LP
Label: Kye
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"Kye is proud to present The Annihilating Light, the brand new LP by Stefan Jaworzyn. For over three decades Jaworzyn has colored the varied waters of underground practice with his unique and darkly acerbic hue. His tenure in such genre-defining units as Skullflower; Whitehouse and Ascension/Descension, and his scholarly position on extreme cinema have awarded Jaworzyn his reputation as a counter-cultural impresario. He is equally regarded for his solo work, which has taken in everything from D.I.Y. cassette noise, rhythm box processions, to free guitar barbarism and beyond. Returning from a period of self-imposed exile Jaworzyn has re-organized his delivery into a synthesized charge of hard patterned electronics. The first rewards of this resurgence came last year via a pair of 12" EPs released through Jaworzyns revived Shock label. The Annihilating Light continues the story by showcasing two brand new long-form compositions. Oasis Of Filth unveils a brooding synthetic wasteland, percolating with malevolence and spite; Cast Out, by contrast, offers a head-crushing impasse of electronic stasis, fully flushed with classic anti-social potential. Expertly mastered by Jason Lescalleet at Glistening Labs The Annihilating Light arrives in a full color, high gloss sleeve, with black matte inners, in an edition of 500 copies." -Kye.

Title: Lymph Est
Format: LP
Label: Kye
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
“Kye is proud to present Lymph Est, the brand new LP by Matt Krefting. Kreftings chronology is a deep-rooted and complex one, seeded in the foundation of the Apostasy imprint, and the animation of its numerous transitory groups, most notably Son of Earth, of which he played a crucial part. Concurrently, Krefting has won a reputation for his solo tape-based work, circulated primarily in secretive micro-editions, before eventually reaching a wider audience via last years critically acclaimed High Hopes LP (Open Mouth). Lymph Est presents the advance of Kreftings march, and stands as the purist distillation of his art to date. Taking the common garden apparatus of cassettes, mics and amplification, Krefting constructs a music of rare simplicity and abundant mystery. Treated voices, piano, samples and T.V. grabs are ushered into a series of soft-focus miniatures that are built to be razed in a perpetual cycle of triumph and defeat. Lymph Est exists as a far-flung landscape where outline and definition are lost to time, and the fading signature of recall wanes to a pallid script. Mastered by Jason Lescalleet at Glistening Labs Lymph Est arrives in a full color Krefting designed sleeve, with complimentary innerbags/labels in an edition of 400 copies.” - Kye.

"Poem is Graham Lambkins (Shadow Ring, Tart, Transmission, etc..) first solo LP, and it is a doozy. Slowed down voice, water sounds, a little bit of radio, and some odd hisses and hums all combine for a very linear and yet insane listening experience. The sound soon becomes a strange syrup that surrounds the listener in its devilishly well-crafted coccoon. The editing is very subtle, but very rewarding to the patient listener. And: (1) this is one of the top records to listen to with that last drink at 5 or 6 AM (it works!); and (2) this can easily sort out the contenders from the pretenders at any social gathering. A real favorite of mine." - Scott Foust.

Price: $17.00
"Kye is proud to present Much To My Demise, the brand new solo LP by Jason Lescalleet. Since establishing himself as a preeminent voice in contemporary electro-acoustic study, Jason Lescalleet has, through his solo work and in collaboration, exploded the notion of what is possible within the realm of tape-based music. His recorded catalog acknowledges a diversity of application, from lo-fi reel-to-reel soundscaping and work for hand-held cassette machines, on through to digital sampling and computer generated composition. Lescalleets live actions further expand his ouevre to include work with video, dance, performance art and multi-media concerns. In recent years Lescalleets work has done much to explore the theme of loss and decay as sound - Another Example Of Parkinsons Law (2001), Ineinandergreifen and Untitled (from Mattresslessness) (2002) and The Pilgrim (2006) all hold the concept of senescence at heart. Much To My Demise carries the motif of decomposition further still. Recorded and constructed solely with analog sources, Much To My Demise showcases the result of a three month process in which pre-recorded reels of tape were transported outdoors, buried in soil and encouraged to corrode. The reels were then excavated, and their resultant signals transferred and edited to form an apparitional triptych of faded gesture and mood. Much To My Demise shows Lescalleet at a new creative peak, crafting a music that is equal parts comforting and haunting, and allowing us access to secret world of sound hidden in plain sight. Expertly mastered at Glistening Labs, Berwick, ME, Much To My Demise arrives in a Lescalleet designed monochromatic reverse board sleeve, with card stock insert, on white vinyl, in an edition of 500 copies." -Kye.

Localized field recordings and conversational excerpts are combined with violin/electronics and processed into a detail-rich diaristic plateau that perfectly captures the heady climate of the source. Whole Stories by contrast, examines the dichotomy of luck verses agency, employing as its basic material the roseate whirl of a casino hall as backdrop to a slowly unfolding narrative that reflects on a life ravaged by disappointment and woe.

Format: Double CD
Label: Kye
Country: USA
Price: $28.00
"The Shadow Ring formed in the seaside town of Folkestone, England in 1993. Over the course of a decade, and through eight LPs, Graham Lambkin, Darren Harris and later Tim Goss scraped out a unique musical pathway for themselves, armed with only the barest of tools. With each release the Shadow Ring presented themselves as a group in constant flux. Naive acoustic improvisations, dour bedroom sci-fi epics, cryptic D.I.Y. theatre and glacial electronic soundscapes all became fair game in their hands. The group recorded for some of the premier underground labels of the era: Siltbreeze, Corpus Hermeticum, Swill Radio and their own Dry Leaf Discs were all at one time or another called home. The Shadow Ring were also champions of the absurd -- never playing live in their home country, they instead performed 23 shows across the US between 1995-97. The life of the Shadow Ring finally came to pass on the banks of the Hudson River in 2003. Life Review offers a celebration of the Shadow Rings oeuvre -- from the green chaos of 1993s Dont Open The Window 7" on through to the austerity of 2003s Im Some Songs LP. Featuring material from each of their albums: City Lights, Put The Music In Its Coffin, Wax-Work Echoes, Live In U.S.A., Hold Onto I.D., Lighthouse, Lindus and Im Some Songs, alongside 7" A and B sides, comp appearances, and a clutch of previously unreleased live and studio work, Life Review is an anthology that will serve both the aged fan, and the curious newcomer. Expertly mastered by long-time enthusiast Bhob Rainey, Life Review flushes out the rich sonic detail of the Shadow Rings music like never before. Housed in a deluxe six-panel digipak, with an accompanying 16 page color booklet of photos, flyers, sleeve art etc, Life Review also offers an untainted visual history of the group. With 34 tracks -- personally chosen by Graham Lambkin, and a running time of 154 minutes, Life Review offers the perfect chance to say a final farewell. One more time." -KYE. Very highly recommended!

Title: Lend an Ear, Leave a Word
Format: LP

Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Kye is proud to present “Lend an ear, leave a word” the new LP from Glasgows Mark Vernon. "The pieces composed for this album combine field recordings of contemporary Lisbon with found tape recordings from the past;  reel-to-reel tapes, micro-cassettes and Dictaphones collected from the Feira de Ladra market, a popular and lively flea market in the Alfarma district. Each tape recording is an audio snapshot of a specific time; a family album in sound, a musical performance, a compilation of treasured music, or even just the fun of playing around with a tape recorder captured for posterity. Every thoughtless edit or push of the record button teleports us to a different time and place. The musical material extracted from the tapes is also an evocative signifier  that locates it within a specific era. The interesting thing is how the tapes accumulate different strata of time even within a single side.There are consecutive chronological recordings but also sequences with unexpected breakthroughs where the user has carelessly fast-forwarded through the tape, randomly ‘dropping-in’ new recordings. These accidental edits create instantaneous new collages of sounds and voices.  I have endeavoured  to retain the essence of these unintentional edits and unexpected outbursts in the pieces I have assembled here. The noisy whir and clicking of the various tape mechanisms is evident on many of the found recordings. As the material is sped up and slowed down it acts as an internal clock, a continuous, steady marker of time, almost like the second hand of a timepiece. All of the pieces contained here within explore one particular environment - the city of Lisbon. Field recordings by their very nature are time-based but the introduction of found tapes into the mix expands the time-scale of these studies from just the short period spent in the city making recordings, backwards to possibly forty or more years in the past. It is a portrait in time *and* place, an archeology of sound. The result of the audio flotsam and jetsam washed up on the shores of low commerce in the flea markets of Lisbon." (Mark Vernon) “Lend an ear, leave a word” arrives in a full color matte stock sleeve with insert and download card that features additional pieces left off the LP due to time constraints. Mastered by Jason Lescalleet in an edition of 400." - Kye.
