Artist: ARTIFICIAL SUBTERRANE
Title: Water Regions of The Southwest USA
Format: CD
Label: Wholly Other
Country: USA
Price: $12.50
"Third solo release by Paul Guilford/Locasta of the Dave Dove Paul duo, this time under the pseudonym Artificial Subterrane. Long and layered bass triggered synth pieces form some kind of oblique concept album somehow related to the fact that there are no naturally occurring lakes in Texas. Sounds involved range from appropriately aquatic to ambient (if your idea of ambiance is a construction site)." -Wholly Other. Last available release from the first era (90s) of the Charalambides Wholly Other label. Handpainted/assembled artwork.

Artist: CARTER, CHRISTINA
Title: Electrice
Format: LP
Label: Wholly Other
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Long anticipated licensed vinyl reissue of Christina Carters most recent kranky CD release, with beautifully hand-painted, signed, and numbered covers. An experiment in palette limitation, using only the barest match-sticks of form and lyrics, Christina constructs a shimmering puzzle of austere beauty. Edition of 500, almost gone already." - Wholly Other. "Subterranean song writing ... eliminating excess elements ... more cinematic or sculptural, feeling of being a human body... piano-like guitar... two personal songs, two universal songs ... idealization and memory... songs created instantly, not knowing what i was going to sing about until i sang... inspired by 60s album art and band photos of floating heads, slight physical defects and skeletal uncoordination, anachronistic futurisms, the idea of drone (4 different songs from the same basic musical elements), dance choreography, and living with chronic pain..."- Christina Carter.

Artist: CARTER, TOM
Title: After Lunch, Only Devils
Format: CDR
Label: Wholly Other
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"relentlessly looped fuzz wah spun into muzzy knots around dazed spectators heads, crumbling into fragmenting crumbs of varying bit depth. presented in two longish improv settings (recorded during a residency in louvain-la-neuve belgium by daniel duchamp, in paul labrecques basement), and one short blast recorded before a very zoned audience in berlin by steve gunn, laid down during the massively psyched out GHQ/ tom carter tour in europe, spring 2008. edition of 100, gatefold silkscreen covers."-Wholly Other

Format: CDR
Label: Wholly Other
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Strictly limited edition of 120. Two acoustic tracks sandwiching one long lap steel track recorded in the smoke filled center hallway at bullbabe studios. One last stab at channeling the gnarly mystery of Texas angst-blues-ecstasy. No effects, just fingers, glass, steel, nylon, and space." - Wholly Other.

Title: Sun Swallower
Format: CDR
Label: Wholly Other
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"slithering guitar recordings via the same handheld cassette player that documented charalambides live hand held cdr (and in fact recorded on the same tour). this is a complete set recorded at the ecstatic yod mill outlet, in which i use a couple of slides and flattened pennies to coerce a japanese les paul copy into spewing forth some of its mysteries, sun sinking in the bay window for the whole ride. edition of 250 with handmade linoleum block print covers.

Artist: CARTER, TOM
Title: Whispers Toward Infinity
Format: CDR
Label: Wholly Other
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Four live (mostly) improvised guitar & lap steel pieces, captured just before the delay pedals snuck back into the line signal. Shimmering modal folk/blues/raga frameworks collapsing under the weight of myriad microsounds, ebows, & slides and reforming into quietly pulsing soundscapes. A summation of all the solo fretwork motion up to the point where that approach was back-burnered in favor of collaborative efforts, wah, & electro harmonix. numbered edition of 150, hand-printed lino block & xerox card covers, artwork by Natacha Robinson (A Vintage Burden artist) front and back." -Wholly Other.
SOLD OUT

Artist: CARTER, TOM & INCA ORE
Title: Rainbow Trout
Format: CDR
Label: Wholly Other
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"eva (inca ore) is a noted abyss whisperer and lung purger whose vox exertions have added a great deal of chokehold potential to JOMF in addition to a slew of other collaborations, most notably yellow swans. her new cd on 5rc is a heart-punching freedom grab that has folks across the globe falling bewildered onto either side of their self-drawn boundaries. this collab with tom partakes of some of the nursery rhyme fragility of her jyrk/weird forest debut, w/out fearing the blown open furnace door (nor the white heat inside. nor the wah pedal). 43 minutes, 150 copies, spraypaint stencilled by eva w/ an image of a popular medicinal plant of the western hemisphere." - Wholly Other.
SOLD OUT

Artist: CHARALAMBIDES
Title: Branches
Format: CD
Label: Wholly Other
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"A rare document of a brief arc in Charalambides 17 year (and counting) trajectory, somewhere between the extreme spatial attenuation of the long gone Crucial Blast CDR Being As Is and the gentle intergalactic trio sway of the kranky disk Unknown Spin- and quite distance from both the exclamatory exhalations of Joy Shapes and the layered songcraft of Likeness. These are spartan duets of formalistic near-symmetry, a reminder that there was a time when Charalambides swung as close to the axis of Incus and FMP as to that of Takoma and ESP. Christina (voice) and Tom Carter (guitar) improvise non-textual melodic lines around an locus of mirror clarity, occasionally overlapping various strands using two DAT machines and a mixing board, in a nod to the pre ProTools digital scrap heap. Originally issued as a Peter King lathe cut LP on Eclipse Records in an edition of 100 in 2000, the reissue of this extreme rarity is remastered from a superior source for maximum clarity. Inkblot artwork courtesy of Heather Leigh Murray. The whole package is dedicated to Bruce Connor (R.I.P.). The reissue at hand is an edition of 500, with fold-over printed sleeves in the style of Electricity Ghosts."-Wholly Other

Artist: CHARALAMBIDES
Title: Electricity Ghost
Format: CD
Label: Wholly Other
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"an actual manufactured CD this time, with a real catalog number (first since 2000)! These are trio recordings (featuring Heather Leigh Murray on vox/ pedal steel/ psaltry) and date from the same sessions that produced Joy Shapes. Completely improvised, and similar in feel & instrumentation to Natural Light from Joy Shapes, these five pieces snake out of a gently detailed terrain of interlocking thought forms, eventually weaving themselves into towering thickets of monolithic spikes. Some of the most emotionally charged and harsh Charalambides sounds ever laid down, before or since, and unlikely to be repeated in the same way ever again. edition of 300, xeroxed cardstock sleeves w/ color insert." -Wholly Other.

Artist: CHARALAMBIDES
Title: Emerald Message
Format: CDR
Label: Wholly Other
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"see above. this particular disk is culled from the sessions of the two days preceding recording of internal eternal at the dog end of 1995. improvised detuned stumbling blues with crackling shortwave. much more raw and head-on than internal eternal, more like a scrambleheaded version of charalambides most aggro live mode. despite the folk/blues modalities, this is one of our wiggiest. edition of 250, signed and numbered handmade christina covers." - Wholly Other.

Artist: CHARALAMBIDES
Title: Glowing Raw
Format: CDR
Label: Wholly Other
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"first in a somewhat hazily conceived series of disks documenting the charalambides woodshed years of 95-98, when we were busily (sometimes frantically) trying to come up with a rock trio record (our idea) for siltbreeze. we failed. instead, heres a handful of recordings that follow many of the vectors between market square and houston- from blatant backward psych fuzziness to spare gtr/ vox exhalations, from modal drone to 4 trk song-isms, and a lot of sheer what-the-hell gropings into the void. one track features jason bill and a disembowelled piano. edition of 250, signed and numbered handmade christina covers." - Wholly Other.

Artist: CHARALAMBIDES
Title: Strangle The Wretched Heavens
Format: CDR
Label: Wholly Other
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"final chapter of the archival series begun with glowing raw and emerald message, this time consisting of trio recordings with jason bill from 94-96. at the time we were working on our big blown out rock statement for siltbreeze. our reasons for abandoning this LP are fuzzy to me now, as this is as big and gnarly as anything weve cooked up since. lots of open throated vox wail and acid guitar shredding, w/ some market square-ish minor key motion thrown in as well. a couple of these songs crept onto the setlists of our recent US tour. edition of 250, covers handpainted by christina, somewhat informative notes by me. note: this is the CDR that we were selling on tour (and had sold out of by the time we hit oklahoma)." - Wholly Other.

Artist: FRIDAY GROUP
Title: Crystal Eunuch Reversal
Format: CDR
Label: Wholly Other
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"3 chunks from the 2005 friday group west coast tour from the unashamed masters of the stoned moan (tom carter, shawn mcmillen, matt martinez, brian smith). slow motion ethno blues drawl that piles up into balls of tentacled fury, with the occasional blast of blistering fuzz thrown in. far, far away from the tranquility of the beta-lactam debut LP (still available)! handpainted/ drawn/ xeroxed covers by shawn, edition of 150 copies." - Wholly Other.

Price: $18.00
..When You Can Haul Ass Down The Freeway "one sided LP of looped/ live collage action swirled up into mass gtr/ drum ritual terror. far darker than previous FG stuff.... blank LP side is a blood-red silkscreen. shipped in clear polyvinyl sleeves.

Title: It Chars Our Lips Yet Still We Drink
Format: One Sided LP
Label: Wholly Other
Country: US
Price: $20.00
"The second ever Wholly Other vinyl outing is a duo of Peter Swanson (D. Yellow Swans) and Tom Carter (Charalambides, etcetera). Despite the noisy pedigree of Mr. Swanson, and the latter day scrape of TCs Horton collaborations, this is a deceptively serene collection of electric guitar trance-outs, gently building to a spiders-down-the-shirt climax full of hiss and slithering menace. Eye-popping silkscreened crypto mandala art by Liz Harris (Grouper) on the blank side, on clear vinyl so you can stare while it spins (and youll want to)... packaged in a heavy clear sleeve. Edition of 308." -Wholly Other.

Artist: SPIDERWEBS
Title: Brighton Beach
Format: LP
Label: Wholly Other
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Spiderwebs is the duo of Tom Carter (Charalambides, etc.) and Houston improvising guitarist Sandy Ewen. Starting from the sparse and sometimes pastoral base of Spiderwebs two previous releases, Strands Formerly Braided (Music Fellowship) and Away Away (Collective Jyrk), Brighton Beach constructs towers of fuzz, electronics, and naked scrape from which the duo launch deep into the inarticulate heart of sonic maximalism. Since Spiderwebs 2003 inception, Carters guitar playing has traveled a long, strange road from his spacious improvisations with Heather Leigh-era Charalambides to the immersive pyrotechnics of his current solo playbook. Ewens mangled percussive explosions, high-harmonic shrieks, and Bailey-esque realtime stereo panning echo the aesthetic terrorism of electric Donald Miller, and provide a perfect foil to Carters damaged looping psychedelia. Both push their sound to improbable extremes to launch Spiderwebs into the upper realms of higher-key incandescence. Edition of 255 hand-numbered & hand-titled copies with 2-color silkscreen covers and photo/ text inserts." -Wholly Other
