Artist: DARK SUNNY LAND
Title: Emanations For A Returning
Format: LP
Label: One Hand
Country: USA
Price: $21.00
"The latest from Dark Sunny Land, Emanations for a Returning, will be available from One Hand Records hq in August. Over the last decade Bostons Steve Painter, under various monikers, has quietly released a number of killer CDs on Gulcher that seemed to earn him high praise from the handful who heard them. Most enthusiastically touted by the great, long-running zine turned blog, Black to Comm, check out the fine interview with Steve Painter that appeared there. Emanations is four tracks of Painters uneasy, claustrophobic feedback and drone that are reminiscent of trailblazers Kluster and Taj Mahal Travelers. Painter calls his music “cranky ambient.” Recorded in the shadows of Fenway Park, this is an excellent late-night comedown listen. Emanations is the first Dark Sunny Land release to appear on vinyl. Silk screened covers. Edition of 150 copies." - One Hand.

"Do try and search out the delightful and highly useful EMANATIONS FOR A RETURNING by Bostons Dark Sunny Land. Released on One Hand Records, this limited vinyl edition shakes and sparkles with that same shimmer as Japanese Gagaku ceremonies, all Timeless and Hazy and Almost and Nearly. Its probably those singing bowls that throw time off so, or perhaps the household objects, or maybe even the subtly rendered Theremin. Indeed, Im loathe to compare this vinyl LP with anything too specific, for it is entirely itself. Yes, the music of Dark Sunny Land occupies mostly a peculiar heat haze hinterland, a semi-permanent perch that always appears to threaten a massive increase in volume, but never does. But EMANATIONS FOR A RETURNING is a fine LP housed in a delightful art sleeve, and it dont half endlessly repeat well, Motherfuckers." - Julian Cope.

Artist: DARK SUNNY LAND
Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: One Hand
Country: USA
Price: $21.00
“Bostons great loner cosmic tones pusher turns in 4 new tracks of his signature drift. This is beautiful, melt-into-your-couch stuff. Dark Sunny Land is Steve Painters 3rd album as DSL, and continues his pursuit of the sound from a yet to be discovered planet. Painter cites Sun Ra, Kluster, and Basinski as influences, and you hear them all here, but at this point--Painter is now a sexagenarian--he has developed a sound that is unmistakably his own. The albums closer, "Kangaroo Daydream," is the most gorgeous piece he has produced yet. It finishes too soon, not so much ending as vaporizing and ascending into the stratosphere.” - One Hand.

Hand numbered edition of 150 copies.

"First biggo surprise of 15s this new longplayer courtesy the mostly-MIA for 14 Stephen Painter a.k.a. Dark Sunny Land. Hes back with that ol proverbial vengeance on this un which thankfully continues on the spacial avant musical sounds of the past which in many ways are the logical extension of what all this rock n roll was heading in the first place. From K/Cluster-esque cranks to warm encapsulating sound that you can burrow yourself into, DARK SUNNY LAND weaves itself into your very own nerve-endings with a music that, once you spin the thing repeatedly for a few hours, makes you wanna stand up and holler that this was made for you and you alone! And in some ways you may be right Snuggle up with an old issue of CREEM while this un spins brightly throughout these Artic nights." --Chris Stigliano, Blog to Comm.

Artist: FADENSONNEN
Title: Badlands
Format: LP
Label: One Hand
Country: USA
Price: $21.00
“Fadensonnen are a Brooklyn/Vermont duo consisting of PD and RD. They have a full-length and a few EPs to their name, all self released, and have played a couple gigs a year. But theyve stayed under most radars cept for the more sophisticated ones (hello FMU). "Badlands" is their second full length, and their vinyl debut, and it strikes with the menace of IIIrd Gatekeeper-era Skullflower and the wasted sprawl of some of the PSF catalogs more punishing moments. The guitars are feral and upfront, the rhythm section is a murky brew of rumbling and pounding that fights to be heard above the squeal. This is a massive blast of dark psych amp-destruction. Play these 3 tracks loud at 45 RPM. For fans of Skullflower, Urthona, Fushitsusha, Les Rallizes and Celan. Edition of 150 numbered copies. Hand-drawn, silk-screened jacket with art insert.” - One Hand.

Artist: WEASEL WALTER AND CHRIS PITSIOKOS
Title: Drawn and Quartered
Format: LP
Label: One Hand
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"One Hand is excited to release the second album from Weasel Walter & Chris Pitsiokos. "Drawn and Quartered" expands on where they left off with 2012s fantastic "Unplanned Obsolescence." It reflects the time in between spent non-stop gigging together and in literally countless configurations with others. Pitsiokos is evolving quickly as a player with a wide range of powers. He has established himself as one of the top sax wielders on the NYC free music map and hes not even 25. Weasel needs no introduction. "Drawn and Quartered" was recorded over two days in Spring 2014. Its high energy splatter-- its spastic, occasionally blown out, but the playing consistently tiptoes the line between barely contained and going off the rails. At times the duo recall the playful side of, say, Peter Brotzmann/Shoji Hanos duo recordings, at others the unpredictable ride of an AACM project. The glorious sound of sax and drums.
