Artist: 12Z
Title: Trembling Air
Format: LP
Label: Other People
Country: USA
Price: $23.00
"Trembling Air, an eclectic collection of intricate, improvisatory tone poems. As pure improvisers, Bálint Szabó and Márton Kristóf have constructed a substantial body of work, including film scores, studio recordings, and a significant archive of 12z [sessionz] -- weekly improvised jams with a shifting cast of collaborators. These [sessionz] were compiled into a self-released podcast, released following their 2013 self-titled debut on Hungarian label Farbwechsel. Not to mention their live work, which is the foundation of 12zs craft and artistry. With Szabó on guitar, Kristóf on electronics, and guest member Áron Porteleki often joining on drums, they fluctuate between jagged rhythmic passages, floating moments of harmonic tension, and any other form that emerges, always chiseling structure from the chaos. Trembling Air marks another direction in 12zs work, as their first entirely electronic recording. The album was sparked by György Pálfis 2014 film Free Fall, for which it was recorded as a potential score, but stands strong independently, conjuring its own strange images." - Other People.

Artist: A PLEASURE
Title: Jream House
Format: LP
Label: Other People
Country: USA
Price: $23.00
"Jream House is the turbulent and spiritual debut LP of Mark Hurst aka A Pleasure, following his 2014 Extended Play digital EP on Other People. Blending mathematical composition with unrestrained studio experimentalism, the sound of A Pleasure charts a space where formative influences confront the most immediate performative impulse. Using a process of numerical transposition, the names of personally significant bands and composers are converted into drum patterns. Then Hurst lets loose, improvising around these structures with a variety of traditional and unorthodox instruments, including bass and guitar, bowed cymbals, drum machines juggled like turntables, and blowtorch on aluminum, to name a few. With his influences as starting points, he builds rhythmic structures and blasts them with walls of noise, monolithic basslines, and other jam-shrapnel. Despite the chaos and complexity of the process, the results sound neither clinical nor garbled. The tracks always find their way to an emotive melody or strong groove. Lush guitar strums and yearning keys ride the high-speed beat of "Slow Channel," which seems to soar through cloud-cover as one snaking mass. "The Order of Things" folds a cosmic guitar-part into a backdrop of heavily side-chained noise. "Arthur Russell" features a neck-snapping rimshot and crushed snare that splash up the bits of an elegiac vocal part. Through violent and idyllic atmospheres, Jream House jettisons its inspirations like landing shuttles, always in search of new ground. These are songs, not just experiments." - Other People.

Artist: TEENAGE JESUS & THE JERKS
Title: Live 1977-1979
Format: LP
Label: Other People
Country: USA
Price: $27.00
"Teenage Jesus and the Jerks began to formulate their visionary brand of aural catharsis sometime during the first half of 1977, amidst the sordid ruins of a then fully down-and-out Lower Manhattan. The mastermind behind this juggernaut of sonic libertinage was a barely pubescent but world-weary runaway who called herself Lydia Lunch. Influenced strongly by the Marquis de Sade andHenry Miller, Lunch shrewdly decided to graft the existential horror of her own writing onto harsh, atonal music after being exposed to the room-clearing live output of other contemporary rock-music deconstructionists like Suicide and Mars. With an agenda of conjuring nightmarish intensity in lieu of technical instrumental ability, Teenage Jesus instantly made the supposedly nihilistic and raw current wave of so-called Punk acts sound like slick, good-timey pop music by comparison. Teenage Jesus and the Jerks were The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Ilsa, She Wolf of the SS, and Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom, transliterated into a blatant mockery of the increasingly tired, basic rock-band format. Posthumously, there have been numerous reissues of the primary Teenage Jesus corpus, namely the first side of the Lydia Lunch double compilation albumHysterie (CD Presents, 1986), a very incomplete anthology titled Everything (Atavistic, 1995) and Shut Up and Bleed (Cherry Red/Atavistic, 2008), which also featured Beirut Slump tracks. These less-than-fastidious documents contained reverb-laden transcriptions of the studio cuts directly from vinyl copies, as well as random live tracks of mediocre fidelity. This particular collection about to be released on Other People is meticulously edited and mastered from rare bootlegs taped during the initial 1977-1979 period of the classic band, and only one title (Crown of Thorns from January 17, 1979) has been legitimately released to date, albeit in a completely different sound quality. Almost every known Teenage Jesus and the Jerks composition appears on this compendium and Ms. Lunch herself is quite satisfied that this just might be the final nail in the coffin... If it is the sound of deliberately organized and deployed agony you are seeking, your bath has been drawn and the razor awaits." --Weasel Walter, Brooklyn, NY, June 30, 2015
