Artist: FUSINATO, MARCO
Title: Ambianxe
Format: LP
Label: The Spring Press
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"Pressing #01 in an edition of 250 copies on 180 gram virgin black vinyl. A live LP of incendiary concréte guitar shards. Two live sets from SuperDeluxe Tokyo. Imagine Derek Bailey slamming his guitar into the circuitry of David Tudor and the subsequent brawl. Polite applause please. This is the sound of Caravaggio." -Spring Press
"Desecration of the note, tone and timbre of the guitar purposefully undermines the instruments iconography as a phallic avatar of Americana. The cover image of Ambianxe, Caravaggios The Lute Player (1595-96) reaches further into the instruments past incarnations as a symbol of youth, class and virtuosity... Fusinato has identified the Lacanian jouissance that runs concurrent with the anomalous post-Cagean world. In listening we are lifted from the day-to-day noise of society and repositioned into an analytical and intimate, yet sublime space, questioning the tactile sensation of sweeping frequencies and deciphering semingly formless sound structures. Put to a test of sensual assault and dropped into a pit of unreconisable, distorted crunch, one finds oneself barred from the recognition and relief of the funky pop song or the false sense of security installed by the enveloping blanket of supermarker Muzak. Ambianxe may only be a mediated recording of such things, but the significant placing of such a record in the technocratic world of music production and distribution highlights the artists recognition of his place within global media, post-millennium." –Nik Tammens, Un Magazine.
"...Whatever music is or isnt, it certainly does not have to be as relentlessly deafening as Marco Fusinatos barrage, which was about as pleasant as being attacked by a squadron of F/A-18s..." –Anna Schwartz Gallery.
"Marco Fusinatos work is a series of propositions that question and re-configure accepted cultural forms and concepts, laying bare their construction, re-using them in particular contexts, exploring how those worlds are made..." –Sarah Cottier Gallery

Artist: GIFFONI, CARLOS
Title: Lift
Format: LP
Label: The Spring Press
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"Pressing #01 in an edition of 250 copies on 200 gram virgin clear vinyl, featuring artwork by photographer Rachael Cassells. A new studio LP from this synth maverick. Primordial dance music comprised of pulsating analog rhythms and austere waves of mechanical tones. With beginnings in laptop electronics and his focus now turned toward analog synthesizers and modular manipulation, results vary from the extreme to the beautiful. Mastered by Casey Rice." -Spring Press.
"On "First Steps in a ruined world", he pushes this bleakness of vision further than ever into the noise territories he used to stalk in his pre-modular synth work... Theres physicality and momentum elsewhere, but by stripping back his music to its barest essentials, Giffoni has found a way to merge rhythm and texture, in the process creating a music whose sense of space and depth belies its economy of means. Over a concise four tracks, Giffoni projects a vision that revels in the idea of the synthesizer as a grimy, mud-encrusted machine whose function is to soundtrack a dystopian present rather than reference an idealised golden age or imagine a shiny ergonomic future." –Keith Monliné, The Wire.

Artist: MARHAUG, LASSE & BRUCE RUSSELL
Title: Virginia Plane
Format: LP
Label: The Spring Press
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"A new collaboration between these two heavy-weights, and the first in what will hopefully be an ongoing project. Composed remotely across oceans and hemispheres over the last five years, the album draws on the languages of musique concréte, dub, power electronics, free noise and at times even early Italian avant-garde composition (believe it or not). This entire work highlights the startling power of their individual approaches and the true potential only occasionally realized in collaborations of this nature. Mastered by Patrick Klem at Klemflastic Sound, Phoenix. Cut by Rashad Becker at Dub-plates & Mastering, Berlin. Pressed in an edition of 300 copies Bruce Russell lives and works in Lyttleton, New Zealand. He is a member of The Dead C, A Handful of Dust and founder of Corpus Hermeticum and Xpressway record labels. Lasse Marhaug lives and works in Oslo, Norway. Working mostly within the fields of noise he is also a member of Jazkamer, Nash Kontroll, DEL and founder of Jazzassin and Picadisk record labels." - The Spring Press.

Artist: MORLEY, MICHAEL
Title: Oceans/Quarters
Format: Lathe Cut 10"
Label: The Spring Press
Country: USA
Price: $24.00
“Michael Morley, together with Bruce Russell and Robbie Yeats, set the benchmark for free movements in guitar and rock music with the Dead C. With their six antipodean hands, theyve dragged stale western guitar rock music kicking and screaming towards the basements of Jazz and ancient spirits of centuries past.
Ocean/Quarters quickly succeeds Michaels recent outing Saturday Night Fever, and rightly so. Consider this one the swirling comedown of the morning after… Eighteen hours on the dance floor and now its all cold sweats.
