Artist: GNOD
Title: Infinity Machines
Format: Triple LP
Label: Rocket Recordings
Country: UK
Price: $35.00
"Salford, England-based Gnods Infinity Machines explores a unique vision informed by experimental élan and metaphysical intensity. In an era in which the word "psychedelic" too often tends to signify a reductive and retrograde rag-bag of second-hand shapes, it was in Gnods nature to venture forth in search of new and expanded sonic terrain. At first, this led them to pursue a purely electronic sound in the live arena, yet as they knuckled down to chronicle this expansion and experimentation for posterity, it became clear that a mixture of live instrumentation and binary audial research would be the path that would prove most fruitful. Thus began the process that would ultimately produce these recordings, and a far-reaching mission that would result in uncanny crepuscular atmosphere locking horns with sinister electronic intensity. Infinity Machines traverses between and beyond a variety of different headspaces, from the bleak to the beatific; yet, while touching on nocturnal jazz, soothing yet unsettling ambience, menacing aggro-industrial battery, and opiated bliss-out alike, its shot through with an undercurrent of fiery countercultural zeal and small-hours revelation, as if the hive-mind of their home collective had manifested itself on disc. Tracks were put together from an initial blank canvas, and as the band themselves emphasize, "We got pretty tactical in the approach. We have certainly noticed that the emphasis has shifted from full on throw everything at it Gnod vibes to a more stripped spacious sound which was not fully intentional but more of a natural progression." - Infinity Machines.

Artist: GNOD
Title: INGNODWETRUST
Format: LP
Label: Rocket Recordings
Country: UK
Price: $24.00
"Brothers and sisters, to prepare ourselves to celebrate the sacred mysteries of Gnod, let us call to mind our sins. We believe in one Gnod, Gnod Almighty, makers of heavy black slab on Earth. We believe in one Chord, seamless, sublime, the one and only sound of Gnod, eternally begotten of the marcher. Gnod from Gnod, light from light, true Gnod from true Gnod, begotten, not made, of one Being with the maker; through Them all riffs were played. For us and for our salvation They came down from Manchester; by the power of Tonys (un)limit, They came to reincarnate and made the last discod beat. Tonys First Communion, if you choose to be blessed by this record, is the first reception of the Sacrament on vinyl; this long-standing favorite has been celebrated over centuries of incarnations and Rocket are proud to release its rite of passage. The ceremony of this Communion lasts 20 minutes and 2 seconds. On the second side, Gnod rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; They ascended into noise upon this Earth and were seated at the right hand of the Vatican. This 13-minute holy doctrine sees Gnod take away the sins of the world; it cleanses the incense (the in-sense-out-sense) from the all-seeing (third) eye, like a Faustian Butthole Surfers sharing bread with Shit & Shine and John Carpenter turning water into wine. Some ceremonies owe their institution to purely physical reason; for Gnod, its the mystical reason that They represent. INGNODWETRUST is founded on honor and soul, They for one are finally washing their hands with downcast eyes." - Rocket Recordings.
SOLD OUT

Artist: HILLS
Title: Master Sleeps
Format: LP
Label: Rocket Recordings
Country: UK
Price: $25.00
"Hills are a three-piece band based in Gothenburg andMaster Sleeps was their immediately sold-out second album, originally released on a small Swedish label in 2011. Rocket are proud to present a re-release of this great psych classic, with stunning new sleeve artwork.Master Sleeps draws its inspiration from some of the great bands of the late 60s and early 70s like Can,Amon Düül, and A.R. & Machines. Also you can hear the influence of native Swedish legends likeInternational Harvester, Pärson Sound, and Trad Gras Och Stenar. But unlike a lot of the current over-saturated scene of psych bands that mine their 60s and 70s record collections, Hills manage to sound contemporary and relevant in 2013. They are currently putting the finishing touches to their third album which will be released by Rocket in 2014, so this reissue of Master Sleeps is a nice taster of what to expect from the next installment from this great band. Includes download code." -Rocket Recordings.

Artist: SHIT AND SHINE
Title: 54 Synth-Brass, 38 Metal Guitar, 65 Cathedral
Format: LP
Label: Rocket Recordings
Country: UK
Price: $26.00
"Taking the repetitive rhythmic drive of krautrock and marrying it to a percussive Butthole Surfers-style strain of acidic intensity, Shit and Shine have carved out a unique niche for themselves as one of the most unpredictable and -- occasionally -- outright unpleasant outfits in living memory. Like a robot Can-Hawkwind hybrid in a Philip K. Dick future, reassembling disco, abstract electronica, and noise rock into elegant new shapes, Shit and Shine furrow brows and fry synapses in equal measure. In spite of 54 Synth-Brass, 38 Metal Guitar, 65 Cathedral boasting a leaner, sleeker attack than before -- partly informed by the bands 2013 and 14 releases on Powells Diagonal (including DIAG 012CD/LP) -- the same sense of gleeful perversity is abundant, and the same twisted humor ingrained in these grotesque and hypnotic grooves. Where there is rock within the album, its essence is morphed and feverishly formulated into extraterrestrial aural landscapes, as on the opening "Electric Pony 2," which lurches forth like Chrome alchemically reassembling the disembodied spirit of Marc Bolan in a scrapyard trash compactor. Elsewhere, specters of smooth jazz fusion lock horns with the against-the-grain approach of Aphex Twin and circular necro-Necks grooves are beset by demons. And the abstract funk of "Love Your Hair -- Hope You Win!" locks a Larry Graham-style groove in a vortex of digital disorientation. Brandishing an intimidating psychic attack and equipped as ever with both nameless menace and savage wit, rarely has a band made sounding so wrong sound so right." - Rocket.
