Artist: APPLEHEAD
Title: Appleheads Rache
Format: LP
Label: Pre-Cert Home Entertainment
Country: UK
Price: $21.00
"The return of Andy Votels most elusive alter-ego with a new album of delirious and darkened collage pieces brought to you by his own Pre-Cert Home Entertainment label, run alongside longtime spar, Sean Canty (Demdike Stare). Hiding behind "Cowardly Pseudonyms" inspired by the incognito exploits of Jean-Pierre Massiera and a long list of Italian library musicians, Applehead is the twice-removed alter-alter-alter ego project of Dead-Cert, Finders Keepers, Cacophonic, Pre-Cert label boss and designer Andy Votel, aka Anworth Kirk, aka Xian Orphic, aka Tandy Love, aka Tony Deval, aka Neotantrik, and the list goes on. This hang-dried and un-cured collection of low-brow electronics, oblique movie-tones, cold-funk, ready-made poetry and domestic plunderism spans five years since the debut Applehead LP on the Pre-Cert label (2011). Cut and pasted from a pool of overnight rare synth-lends, some obscure foreign-pop fix-ups and a stash of emotive tonal sketches and tape-edits (prepared when touring Milan and Rome with Suzanne Ciani and Northern Italy with the blink-missable Stanza Nera punk-funk project) these multifarious, Crepaxian comic-book compositions have clearly absorbed a strong Italian DIY muse. With respectful nods to Daniela Casa, Raskovich, Frizzi, and AR Luciani, Applehead also combines surrealist shlock with Letterist informed random Roman female spoken word and occasional back-handed salutes to Throbbing Gristle and NWW projects. This self-motivated, naturalistic response to the broad vista that has informed 20 years of Votels unwaning multi-dis adventures offers an infrequent opportunity to hear his personal problematic-pop and scalpel-happy art in the comfort of his own creative confides complete with square-pegs and sandpaper. Mastered by Matt Colton. Edition of 500." - Pre-Cert Home Entertainment.

Artist: NEOTANTRIK
Title: Blue Amiga
Format: LP
Label: Pre-Cert Home Entertainment
Country: UK
Price: $21.00
"Andy Votel and Demdike Stares Sean Cantys concept group, NeoTantrik, return with the fruits of recent performances alongside Buchla maestro Suzanne Ciani, Swiss jazz legend Bruno Spoerri, and folk artist Jane Weaver. Recorded during sporadic visits to theaters and art spaces across the world, Blue Amiga follows one year on from their Intervisions (VHSX 009LP), further flinging the coordinates of their improvised alloys to encompass, extract and reduce a broad spectra of influences and disciplines taken from theatrical sound design, Italian library and computer music with general abstract and unrehearsed mechanical/human/electronic interfaces. Put simply; its a trip. Augmented by the presence of synth music and electro-jazz pioneers Ciani and Spoerri -- both subjects of excellent reissues by Votels Finders Keepers label -- plus the return of Jane Weaver and home-made music by the Sound Awareness blogs Martin Young, the team sweep us through engrossing soundscapes fanning out from sub-aquatic drone to radiant electro-acoustica, gloomy cues and strung-out, opiated ambience of a deeply romantic, adult nature. Garbed in Asia Argentos gorgeous cover design -- featuring an image depicting the private family swimming pool photography of giallo actress Daria Nicolodi -- Blue Amiga wears its cinematic influences quite literally on its sleeve, while musically rebuking the obvious stylistic blinkers of European film music in favor of genuine naked exploration and expansion." - Pre -Cert Home Entertainment.

Title: Intervisions
Format: LP
Label: Pre-Cert Home Entertainment
Country: UK
Price: $21.00
"Intervisions documents select live actions by Andy Votel, Sean Canty of Demdike Stare, Jane Weaver, and N. Rackers NeoTantrik syzygy over the last 12 months. It breaks down to five parts recorded on location in Bristol, Rotterdam, and Stockport -- some previously issued on tape -- in mutating alignments of personnel all deeply focused on common goals of abstract sonic transcendence uniting a mind-field of mimetic and sensual references to nu-religious and metaphysical phorms. Three pieces were captured at Bristols Cube Gallery, ranging from the pineal dilation of "Parched Effigy (Cube 3)" to their tunneling, 10-minute trip across fragmented free jazz and kosmische "Intervisionary Heretic," and the overheated machine squall and concrète confusion of "Xian Octagon." The Rotterdam parts are more concise, potent, travelling great distances during two minutes of astral flight in "Coloursound (Worm1)" and vaporizing into radiant metallic dissonance during the five minutes of "Crolyn Emphasis." Jane Weavers contribution provides a more controlled and somber counterpoint, calcifying their abstract tendencies in the organ meditation, "Sous le même soleil, vie disparu dans le ciel," recorded at Compstall Mill in Stockport. Mastered and cut by Matt Colton at Alchemy in an edition of 500 copies. Artwork by Andy Votel." - Pre-Cert Home Entertainment.

Artist: NEOTANTRIK
Title: Omnichrom
Format: LP
Label: Pre-Cert Home Entertainment
Country: UK
Price: $21.00
"Once again mining a rich source of archival material, tape works and improvised recordings, Andy Votels Neotantrik tap deep into the subconscious with a highly-visual trip into the furthest reaches of psychedelic ambience. Following on from Blue Amiga (VHSX 010LP) that came and went in a flash, Omnichrom is a more brooding, studied affair. Unfurling from a delicate modular opening sequence, the A-side flows into a hallucinogenic fever-dream fleshed out with barely-there analog malfunctions and strings that suddenly throw you into a cacophony of noise in a proper creeped-out, tense fashion. The flipside carries on from this point -- pushing you deeper into a Badalamenti-esque soundworld replete with unnerving found sounds and mechanical percussion swung in and out of one of the trippiest Kosmische sessions weve heard in a while. Cut at Dubplates & Mastering in an edition of 500 copies." - Pre-Cert Home Entertainment.

Artist: TONGUES OF LIGHT
Title: Channelled Messages At The End Of History
Format: LP
Label: Pre-Cert Home Entertainment
Country: UK
Price: $23.00
"Tongues of Light present Channelled Messages At The End Of History. Totally stunning record, drawing cosmic, primordial vectors between glossolalia, sound poetry and improvised music via the nebulæ of Youtube for Demdike Stare and Andy Votels Pre-Cert Home Entertainment. Arguably the labels most striking, even transcendent release, Channelled Messages At The End Of History started life as a gift for a friend following long conversations about the nature of improvisation, spontaneity and musical mediumship and subsequently dawned as a remarkable document of occult praxis in the digital age. Tongues of Light acts as a sort of psycho-pomp or liminal interpreter for a wide range of belief systems, all rooted in the common conviction that they are channeling sounds from some "other" or "higher" entity or dimension, much in the same way that Sun Ra believed he was channeling celestial bodies thru his music or the Dogon people of Sub-Saharan Africa believed they received alien codes describing humanitys heritage. The record unfurls as a seamlessly sequenced compilation of samples - all framed by plasmid drones and synth pads which connect and highlight the links between seemingly disparate elements. By the records end the effect is really quite uncanny; compounding disparate new age coordinates on a common plane, and thereby revealing their underlying, subconscious metaphysics. Its great to hear Pre-Cert Home Entertainment connecting the dots between generations of new age thought and practice. This slab will stand out as one of their defining releases for time to come. Features sleeve artwork designed by Andy Votel. Cut at Dubplates & Mastering. Edition of 500." - Pre-Cert.
