Artist: AVARUS
Title: IV
Format: LP
Label: Secret Eye
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"LP only - 160 gram virgin vinyl, pressed in Czech Republic, direct metal mastering, full-color labels and jackets, all-exclusive new jams limited to 200 copies. All-new exclusive Avarus! Fourth Secret Eye full-length and tenth release overall from this incredible Finnish band that pretty much defines modern psychedelic kraut improv. Primitive, primal and tribal, desolate and mournful, dreamy and pastoral, motorik and hypnotic. Buzzing, clattery, droning, stumbling Krautrock flecked with shimmering free-noise, avant ambience, delicate folk fuckery, and chaotic caveman psychedelic space rock. Avarus IV starts where the Rasvaaja LP ended. The IV, too, consists of Tomas Regans careful high-quality recordings. On the IV Avarus makes and even longer dive in the warm and clear pond, into which the water is poured from both kraut and space rock, and from micro music and slapstick. The recording was made after the US tour, which guarantees the firm harmony satisfying the most demanding listeners. The delicate talent and the hilarious team spirit guarantee a recordful of heart-warming harmonies and surprising turns delighting an unprejudiced mind. The wondrous adult rock of Avarus is born from an uncompromising love for music. The finished recording deserved a fantastic cover, too. This in mind, the graphic visionaries Amanda Vähämäki and Pauliina Mäkelä spent their summer holidays swimming, drinking beer, and drawing their kaleidoscopic Davy Crockett epos inspired by music." - Secret Eye.

Artist: AVARUS
Title: Jättiläisrotta
Format: CD
Label: Secret Eye
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"From the circle of psychos who bring you Kemialliset Ystävät and the Anaksimandros comes this release by the one and only Avarus. These Finns play a freaked out blend of noise, folk and, could it be... free jazz!???!??!!??! Packed with aural mayhem and musical non-sequiturs, this music will make you dance like Dr. Huxtable, no joke. Although they have released many tapes, 7", and CD-rs all over the world, this is Avarus FIRST CD! A split release with Finnish label, Lal lal lal." - Secret Eye.

Artist: AVARUS
Title: Vesikansi
Format: CD
Label: Secret Eye
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"49 minutes of gooey new goodness from Avarus - spread over just three tracks. In the last year, Finlands experimental underground has successfully overtaken the freak music world, and for damn good reasons. From the same tattered coven of piss drinkers who alternately refer to themselves (depending on who shows up to record) as Kemialliset Ystävät, Lau Nau, Pylon, Islaja, Es, Kiila or the Anaksimandros comes this, another Secret Eye release from the mighty Avarus - a follow-up to last years Jättiläisrotta. These fumbling Finns conjure a smoky, shit-drunk forest of noise, folk and unsurpassable tribal improv. Features guest vocals and casio from Tara Burke (AKA Fursaxa) recorded live in Ireland." - Secret Eye.

Title: Portmanteau
Format: 10"
Label: Secret Eye
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"Guitar, cello, electronics, and various small rackety sounds collect themselves into a haze of infinite possibilities." - Byron Coley.

This quartet version of BF/BS is the very same lineup that performed at Terrastock 6. 10" vinyl-only release limited to 500 copies worldwide.

Artist: BLACK FOREST/BLACK SEA
Title: S/T
Format: LP
Label: Secret Eye
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"The eponymous fourth album by this Providence-based, improv-volk duo is their best yet. Guitar, cello, electronics and various small rackety sounds collect themselves into a haze of infinite possibilities. At certain points theres a sparseness to their approach recalling Charalambides quiet explosions; at others theres a weird and wooly organic depth closer to some of the contemporary giants of the Finnish underground. Either way, its a stunner." - Byron Coley.

Artist: DIRECTING HAND
Title: Bells For Augustine Lesage
Format: CD
Label: Secret Eye
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"Directing Hand (from Glasgow, Scotland) is the brainchild of Alex Neilson. Skilled in the black-art of ecstatic improvisation, Neilson and his crew of sound-searching souls journey into verdant fields of free-psych-drone, delicate-bubbling-noise and traditional UK folk." - Secret Eye.

Artist: ONE ENSEMBLE OF DANIEL PADDEN

Artist: SPIRES THAT IN THE SUNSET RISE
Title: Four Winds The Walker
Format: CD
Label: Secret Eye
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"Spires that in the Sunset Rise is a four-woman free folk band from Chicago whose musical palette includes the cello, bul bul tarang, various drums and bells, ecstatic yelps and cackles, and all manner of plectra.. Their eclectic, outsider folk has drawn comparisons to Comus, Current 93 and The Raincoats. After releasing their self-titled debut on Eclipse Records last year, Spires played the underground psychedelic Million Tongues Festival at Chicago⿿s Empty Bottle, along with Josephine Foster, Espers, MV and EE, Nick Castro, Kawabata Makoto and Kinski. They later joined the Incredible String Band for six dates on their US tour. ⿿Their eclectic, pagan-inspired and oh so damaged free folk meanderings bring to mind the event in a ghostly precise way and I guess that could be considered a great compliment if you, like me, belong to the category who worships the ground of Comus and Current 93⿝ -Mats Gustafsson for The Broken Face.
