Artist: CHERRYSTONES
Title: Critical Mass: Splinters From The Worldwide New-Wave, Post-Punk and Industrial Underground 1978-1984
Format: CD
Label: Touch Sensitive
Country: UK
Price: $16.00
2015 release. "Cherrystones pulls together the sympathetic sounds of the psychedelic ghetto. Londons best kept secret, Cherrystones has been on the underground scene for a while. People kinda speak of his grooved-out genius in hushed whispers. You might remember when he closed down the final night of ATP after a decade long residency? Or when the heat moved from London to NYC which saw our man deliver an epic Morricone-inspired LP while spending time as DJ Harveys sole label-mate. You might be following his endless list of production and remix work for the likes of Goat, The Horrors and Hospital Productions. Cherrystone explains his work: "...As long as it makes people move on the floor, Im into it. Ive been running a rescue home for the culturally starved and ignored - a sonic soup kitchen within a philanthropic playground. Thats the vibe." On Critical Mass, Cherrystones tunes the listener in to fourteen groups, separated by locale but united by a restless urge to create on their own terms. From Rizzos nihilistic Moogie-boogie to a pre-teen Chandras isolated no-wave. Through Dojojis downtown-via-Lagos inspired punk-funk and Fotes dark, industrial groove, Critical Mass presents a snapshot of an international underground enthralled with the possibility of the new. Cherrystones on the release: "This compilation was put together through records I was enjoying at that time - loose chips, fragmented discoveries, random punts and the true excitement from that hit of What the fuck is that?! It is an exercise in the good and the rad - solid jams from all corners of the world. A veritable platter to switch on the uninitiated or those who hear and feel the truth - it is not an exercise in rarity to make people feel alienated. I know what I feel and I hear the messages and feel the vibrations in these very songs - as will you if you allow them to." In a world in search of an instant authentic buzz - this compilation is not a five second internet high. It is alchemy - made out of blood and sweat, and pure knowledge on how to make people move. Let Cherrystones shake your bones. Critical Mass also features: Rheingold, The Tee-Vees, Aksak Maboul, Transmitters, The Method Actors, Crazy House, Bamboo Zoo, The Lines, 39 Clocks, and The Flowerpot Men." - Touch Sensitive.

Artist: HOLMES, DAVID
Title: 71 (Original Soundtrack)
Format: LP
Label: Touch Sensitive
Country: UK
Price: $33.00
“Inspired by a number of conversations between director Yann Demange and music producer David Holmes, the majority of 71s score was created before the film was shot. Yann likes to shoot with music already written -- an idea that resonates with the collaborative work of Sergio Leone and Ennio Morricone. With reference to Cans soundtrack work, in which only Irmin Schmidt would have seen the film, David would describe the emotion, tone and atmosphere of the scene with the other band members before recording and then editing to picture after. He says "It frees your imagination to try and capture a world that only you can see and feel but in total relation to the directors overall vision. Living in Belfast for most of my life was also a big inspiration." Musically influenced by John Carpenters Assault from Precinct 13 and Escape from New York, John Paul Jones "Four Minute Warning" and Tony Conrads "The Pyre of Angus Was in Kathmandu," the music pulses with the tension and potential terror of war-torn Belfast streets in 1971.” - Touch Sensitive.

Artist: MAYA
Title: Synthezoid Heartbreak/Distant Visions
Format: 7"
Label: Touch Sensitive
Country: UK
Price: $13.00
"Following on from 2015s acclaimed Critical Mass compilation, Cherrystones and Touch Sensitive come together again to present a lost masterpiece from the U.S. hard rock and psychedelic underground. Fully remastered and faithfully reproduced on limited 7inch vinyl with additional insert featuring lyrics and notes from Burk Skyhorse Price (Maya) and Cherrystones. Two lengthy songs of two different moods: Synthezoid Heartbreak rendered musically in raging underground punk damage mode. But I think the small band of freaks that have heard Mayas lone 45 agree that its the pro-Alien sad dirge of Distant Visions that gets the pen scratching the history books for another legendary entry." - Touch Sensitive.
