Artist: CINDY LEE
Title: Malenkost
Format: LP
Label: W.25th
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"Cindy Lee is the brainchild of singer/guitarist Patrick Flegel. While some may know Flegel from his time spent in Canadian experimental indie band Women, Cindy Lee has spent the past four years crafting songs that push and pull in opposing directions -- from tales of tragedy laced with haywire distortion to moments of breathtaking beauty. On Malenkost, Flegel combines everything that makes Cindy Lee so essential: heart-wrenching romantic pleas, rough shards of noise and twilit ballads. Featuring the lo-fi pop single A Message From The Aching Sky, Malenkost sounds like Deerhunter playing The Supremes or vice versa. Superior Viaducts imprint W.25TH presents the first of many Cindy Lee releases. Spectral and timeless, the music of Cindy Lee is hauntingly familiar yet of another plane, a magical collision of Brill Building hooks and uncompromising No Wave. Cindy Lee is intensely dark and cathartic, an eerie fever dream of fleeting, utterly heartbreaking classic girl-group melodies . . . one of the best things we have heard all year." - Gorilla Vs. Bear.

Artist: LARAAJI & SUN ARAW
Title: Professional Sunflow
Format: Double LP
Label: W.25th
Country: USA
Price: $27.00
"Professional Sunflow is the first-time collaboration between Laraaji & Sun Araw, two colossal forces in contemporary electronic music. Laraajis musical radiance has continued to shine brightly over four decades since being discovered by Brian Eno in New Yorks Washington Square Park in 1979. Sun Araw emerged out of Los Angeles experimental scene in 2008 with transformative releases on a variety of trend-setting labels (Not Not Fun, Drag City and more). The live performances on this double LP - recorded in Germany and Switzerland - combine prewritten elements and improvisation. Laraajis soulful vocals and signature instrument, zither, blend beautifully with the free-floating rhythms of Sun Araws Cameron Stallones (guitar / keyboards) and Alex Gray (computer synthesis) to shape Professional Sunflows unique sound: dreamy layers of percussion, ambient textures and vibrant melodies. W.25TH is proud to present Professional Sunflow as our inaugural release. As a sub-label of Superior Viaduct, W.25TH will focus on inventive sounds from current artists." - W.25th.

Artist: BIANCHI, MAURIZIO
Title: Genocidio 20
Format: CD
Label: W.m.o/r
Country: Spain
Price: $13.00
"I have no idea when Maurizio Bianchis Genocidio 20 was recorded but for various reasons it could be an old work, or perhaps something new, but if thats the case than hes playing some old tricks. The first of the six tracks starts out with a nazi speech (not Adolf, but somebody else, I think Rudolf Hess, but identifying voices of nazi idiots is not my science) and quite quickly piercing electronics. Other nazi people also have their say. This could be MBs Weltanschauung record from a quarter of century ago. I believe he lost interest in this kind of stuff, hence me doubting the recentness of this release. But the fourth piece starts out really soft, and that is very unlike early 80s recordings, so perhaps this is recent?" - Vital Weekly. "This is a real puzzler, as theres practically no information whatsoever.. which leads me to guess that it dates from the early 80s, Bianchis "nasty" period, before he became a Jehovahs Witness" - DW.

Artist: RUSSELL, BRUCE
Title: 21st Century Field Hollers and Prison Songs
Format: CDR/Book
Label: W.m.o/r
Country: Spain
Price: $13.00
"This album has been made entirely from samples taken from the Midnight Crossroads Tape Recorder Blues album, which I made with Ralf Wehowsky for A Bruit Secret. Like that album it is a tribute to the spirit of the blues, viewed through a prism of 21st century cultural criticism. It evokes an earlier era when the relationship between a performer and a song arose out of a community, not a property relation. In appropriating my own material I have short-circuited the prevailing ethos of piracy and bricolage, and returned in a sense, to my self. Despite being made in New Zealand, and using some recordings from the Rhineland, the two places that are really central to this album are the Mississippi Delta and the island of Jamaica." - Bruce Russell (Dead C).

Artist: SKATERS
Title: Dispersed Royalty Ornaments
Format: LP
Label: Wabana
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"As the duo known as the Skaters and as solo artists, Ferraro and Clark, who are flat broke and currently without phone or Internet service, spend most of their days and late nights not working but huddled in their bedrooms jamming, obsessively exploring through the use of nontraditional instrumentation and the creation of abstract sound the inside and the outside at the same time, and in the process experiencing what Ferraro calls private imaginations. The end result is not what you would expect -- i.e., a pretentious, painfully dry avant-garde free-noise. Quite the opposite, its a totally out there, vocal-dominated psychedelia, based, structurally speaking, on the open-ended drone heard in industrial music, minimalism, experimental electronics, folk, world music, and free jazz. And, like the best free jazz -- the early, fiery stuff: Trane, Ayler, Sanders -- the Skaters noise-drenched cosmic soul is driven by their need to, in the words of Ferraro, grasp something that is beyond what you can verbalize." - Justin Farrar.

Price: $10.00
"Relevant notes: WARHEADS RETURNS is a noise duo whose members were both born on May 15 inNorthern Maine(in the upper right corner of these United States.) That the two birthdays happened exactly 20 years apart, one in 1962, the other in 1982, may or may not have any relevance to the creation of these recordings perhaps as much relevance as any other coincidence. Regardless of these questions, there is no doubt that this effort is a blistering, harsh, multi-generational-yet common purposed, all out attack on the crippling effects of paternalism in our culture.

Artist: CLARKE, JOHN
Title: Visions of John Clarke
Format: LP
Label: Wackies
Country: Germany
Price: $16.00
“LP version, reissued for the first time. Visions Of John Clarke was a little thrown together for its original release in 1979. Still, its sleeve carried a ringing endorsement from Bullwackies himself "President of the John Clarke Fan Club" -- and the album attracted the interest of Studio 1 boss Coxsone Dodd, whose bid for distribution-rights was thwarted when the Brooklyn label Makossa quickly put in for a full license. The singer -- not to be confused with Johnny Clark -- had been running with the Wackies operation for the past six years, ever since moving from Jamaica to New York. Hed cut memorable sevens with co-founder Munchie Jackson for the Tafari label -- like "In Search of The Human Race and Recession" -- and also worked with Lloyd Barnes for such Bullwackies imprints as Versatile and Wackies.” - Wackies.

Artist: AME SON
Title: Catalyse
Format: LP
Label: Wah Wah
Country: Spain
Price: $29.00
"The origins of Ame Son go back to the mid-sixties, when Bernard Lavialle (guitar), Bernard Stisi (guitar, vocals), Patrick Fontaine (bass) and Marc Blanc (drums) formed Les Primitivs circa 1965. They took the Parisian stages with a Yardbirds/Pretty Things inspired wild R&B set, and they kept active until Stisi left in 1967. At that point they changed their name to Expression, and with a more experimental approach they took their newly find free rock sound a la Soft Machine to night clubs and also to exhibitions of modern art. It was around that time that Marc Blanc met Australian ex-patriate Daevid Allen, who had been the guitarist with the Soft Machine until he hadnt been allowed to return to the UK after some south of France gigs of the band. Allen settled in Paris where he would form Gong, but before that he was to be joined by Blanc and Fontaine in his new project Banana Moon. After the Banana Moon period Lavialle, Fontaine, Blanc and flutist Francois Garrel regrouped under the name of Ame Son and were featured with great acclaim on some of the most important festivals of the era. The BYG label signed them and in 1970 they recorded their now legendary LP. The album was conceived pretty quickly and it has a spontaneous, energetic psychedelic/free rock feel with a pretty psychedelic prog sound that drinks from the same springs as bands such as Gong, the Soft Machine, the Pink Floyd or Guru Guru. Ame Son were one of the earliest French rock bands to go beyond the conventional rock and roll of the time, and Catalyse is considered to be one of the first truly progressive/underground efforts at thrity-three tours in France. The Wah Wah reissue features the original German gatefold cover, remastered sound, a repro of a very cool original Ame Son period poster plus photos and liner notes. Strictly limited to only 500 copies." -Wah Wah

It will appeal to fans of Gong, the early Soft Machine, Pink Floyd and in general anyone with interests in the field of experimental free form underground psychedelic rock. It also includes the two songs from their only 45. Additionally, this LP features a PS 7" with the fabulous Sweet Georgia song by the Primitives for lovers of freakbeat floor killers. Includes an insert with liner notes and photos." -Wah Wah

Artist: AMON DUUL
Title: Paradieswarts
Format: LP
Label: Wah Wah
Country: Spain
Price: $27.00
"Recorded in 1971, Amon Düüls only album for Ohr was a visionary slice of acid-folk which has gained cult status as years passed by. Ritualistic folk-rock, pastoral hippie songs, stoned jams, Eastern flavors, mystical passages and heavy hypnotic riffing which are in fact very different from the early Amon Düül epic freaked-out improvisations (Psychedelic Underground) or Amon Düül II complex and psyched-up progressive works (Phallus Dei). These were in fact archival recordings done by a different incarnation of Amon Duul, one that combined members of both factions into a floating line up welcoming many a guest, and which were released by R.U. Kaiser without the musicians knowledge or authorization, most likely in order to catch up with Amon Düül II rising popularity. All in all, a mythical recording featuring such underground classics as Love Is Peace, Snow Your Thurst Sun Open Your Mouth and Paramechanische Welt. Included also on our edition is their sought after Ohr single: Paramechanical World / Eternal Flow. Another legendary title from the Ohr catalogue rescued by Wah Wah for your listening pleasure. Strictly limited to 500 copies. Sleeve reproducing original artwork from the Ohr original issue. Featuring bonus tracks Paramechanical World and Eternal Flow (originally released as 7" single)." - Wah Wah

Title: Musik Für Alle
Format: LP
Label: Wah Wah
Country: Spain
Price: $29.00
"After the success of the previous Wah Wah reissue of Anima Sounds Stürmischer Himmel we are proud to offer a first ever vinyl reissue of their Musik Für Alle album, one of the rarest private pressings in the Krautrock scene. In 1971 Paul and Limpe Fuchs loaded their instruments on an old tractor and spent six months touring through Germany at 20 km/h. When the summer came, they stopped in front of Willy Neubauers recording studio in Düsseldorf and there they taped a music memory of the tour. Two long pieces, 17 minute long improvisations titled N Da Da Uum Da and Traktor Go Go Go, were to be privately released as an LP on their own Altepfarhof label. By some, these two tracks can surely be considered as one of the best psychedelic experiences ever created, due to the intensity of the recording. On their performance the group produced many wonderful and inspired sounds, many of them coming from Paul Fuchs self-built instruments, and counted with the post-production collaboration of Neubauers Echolette Ringmodulater. The Wah Wah reissue has been properly licensed from Limpe Fuchs herself, reproduces the original cover art and features an insert with photos." -Wah Wah

Recorded at a thousand year cottage on a windy hill and opening with ambience recording of wind and sheeps, the album is an organic collection of improvised atonal pieces ranging from the atmospheric to the wild with much use of screaming, horns, percussions, ambience recordings, wordless vocals and all kinds of home-made sound devices (Fuchshorn, Fuchszither, Fuchsbass... ). Pure German counter-culture sounds from the early 70s. Limited to 500 copies. Sleeve reproducing all the original artwork from the Ohr press. Quality vinyl press inside a 350 gr. quality sleeve.

Artist: ANNEXUS QUAM
Title: Osmose
Format: LP
Label: Wah Wah
Country: Japan
Price: $33.00
2nd pressing on purple vinyl. "Annexus Quam had actually a quite long career, having their roots in the outfit Ambition Of Music, formed back in 1967 Kamp-Lintfort (near Dorf). By 1970, and paying tribute to their early name, they had incorporated a whole array of influences (most important one, the inclusion of jazz instrumentation) and brewed them in what was becoming a very personal progressive fusion of styles, best witnessed in their their debut album Osmose. At that time, the band had grown into a septet formed by Uwe Bick (drums, vocals, percussion), JJonuschies (bass, vocals, percussion), Werner Hostermann (clarinet, organ, vocals, percussion), Peter Werner (guitar, vocals, percussion), Hans K᭰er (trombone, Spanish guitar, vocals, percussion), Ove Volquartz (sax) and Harald Klemm (flute, vocals, percussion). Far from a typical jazz sound, they were able to integrate rock and jazz instrumentation into a unique style, which borrowed elements from the aforementioned genres but blended those into an ultimate cosmic fusion (which can recall at times the Third Ear Band, Xhol Caravan or even Ash Ra Tempel yet remaining totally their own). Actually, Annexus Quam were able to sound meditative, doomy, stoned, aggressive, exotic and lyrical in the same track without loosing any musical coherence or perspective. With their personal style that even today defies categorization (except for that big umbrella we call kraut rock),Annexus Quam had all the inventiveness and excitement of the 1969/1970 German bands. Osmose is a most unique album by an equally unique band, housed in one of the most luxurious, elaborated and tripped-out gimmix covers ever made, now reproduced in all its multi-folding glory. Gimmix folding-pyramidal cover!" - Wah Wah.

Originally released in 1975 by the obscure New Promotions label in a alledged tiny pressing of 100 copies the album has reached "monster" status between die-hard collectors worldwide, sometimes reaching the $ 1,500 tag. An incredible progressive tour de force, the album combined the typical classical leanings, fierce guitar leads and dark keys all over in the best European tradition of the era (think Italian prog). Another rarity which finally reaches a wider audience thanks to Wah Wah in a well presented reissue that is completed by 2 BONUS tracks PLUS a 7" including two more extra tracks all taken from contemporany sessions (actually same month as the album recordings) which show the band delve into Pink Floyd-territory circa More/Ummagumma (think Careful With That Axe, Eugene and youll be pretty close)." - Wah Wah.

“Reissued on vinyl for the first time, heres the second LP by Baba Yaga, After his adventure with My Solid Ground, Ingo Werner formed Baba Yaga. Named after the Slavic folklore character his new adventure seemed to be more a solo project. On this second LP Ingo Werner chose to join forces with santur, sitar, tabla player Nemat Darman, an Iranian musician who also contributed congas, cymbal, gong, timpani, drums and vibraphone, and record the whole album as a duo. Werner would play EMS, Davoli and Solina-string synthesizer, clavinet, electric piano and grand piano, besides producing the whole sessions at the Dieter Dierks studio. On this second delivery, Baba Yaga offer an intriguing mixture of krautrock electronic experimentation with improvised ethnic sounds and textures, compared by some to works by Popol Vuh, Third Ear Band,Brainticket, the early Tangerine Dream, Deuter or even Between.

“After his adventure with My Solid Ground, Ingo Werner formed Baba Yaga. Named after the Slavic folklore character his new adventure seemed to be more a solo project (he plays electric piano, piano, mellotron, synthesizer, organ, clavinet, bassoon and gong, besides being the composer of the music), but it is made with the cooperation of other musicians - most notably Bernd Weidmann who, in addition to singing and playing bass also contibuted with some lyrics. Other musicians in the recording are Joska Fiedermutz on drums, plus Winfried Schreiber and Jürgen Dyrauf on guitars. Songs on this debut album, which was originally issued in 1974 as a very limited edition on the very small Cycle label have been compared to some UK prog-rock works like those of Cressida, Aardvark, Egg,Arzachel, Fantasy or Greenslade. As the LP plays on, echoes of the Canterbury scene can be heard through some jazzy influences, and some heavy-psych and cosmic avant-garde athmospheres created by Werners intelligent use of synthesizers, are thrown in.

Title: Libra
Format: LP
Label: Wah Wah
Country: Spain
Price: $29.00
"When the bunch of filmmakers known as The Pattern Group (Roland Moreau, Georges Perdriaud and Jean Talansier) did Libra, their second movie, in 1973 they thought it would be a good idea to use bits from Pink Floyds Ummagumma and Atom Heart Mother to create its soundtrack. The movie, a 90-minute film with no dialogue, depicts the story of four youngsters living in communion with nature, an idyllic life that is drastically changed when a U.S. satellite crashes in the area and attracts the attention of journalists and TV crews that come to destroy the peace of the place. Obviously, the Pink Floyd bits had been used without permission, and The Pattern Group saw they needed an original soundtrack if they wanted the film released without legal trouble. They approached Jean-Michel Jarre, who declined the invitation to create the new soundtrack, but suggested instead Philippe Besombes. Besombes was a sound explorer who walked similar paths as other avant gardist young musicians from his generation such as Richard Pinhas (Heldon), Paul Putti (Pôle), Jean Louis Rizet or Jean-Michel Jarre himself (way before he became the famed wizard of commercial synth music as we know him today). Besombes was requested to produce a soundtrack in the style of those Pink Floyd tracks used. However he came up with that and more. Always aiming to find new ways of musical expression, he produced music that fitted perfectly in what the filmmakers needed but which was totally of his own. Surrounded by a cast of friends, he locked himself in the basement of his girlfriends father (who even ended up providing the financial funds for the project to reach an end!) and taped the amazing sounds that form the Libra soundtrack, a landmark in French electronic tripping music. The soundtrack was recorded in 1974, and it was released as a vinyl LP on the Tapioca label in 1975. It has since become a highly sought-after LP among collectors of electronic music worldwide, and gets its first vinyl reissue on Wah Wah in a deluxe edition that features a lavish 12" sized, six-page booklet with plenty of photographs from the era and information on the making of Libra in texts written by Philippe Besombes himself and Raul G.

Title: And The Waters Opened
Format: LP
Label: Wah Wah
Country: Spain
Price: $28.00
"Formed in 1970 in Munich, Between was an international band devoted to explore the spaces existing between (hence the name) disparate musical currents: from ancient music to avant garde from Western classical to Eastern musics, from medieval to pop music in a fresh approach that perfectly fitted the experimentation dominating the early 70s German music scene. Whereas many of their contemporaries favoured the introduction of electronic elements, Between relied mostly on purely acoustic sounds, albeit so distorted they would pass as electronic. Roberto Detrees self-made motocello was a constant source of other-wordly sonorities which permeated many of the bands compositions. Add to this Peter-Michael Hamels Indian-influenced systemic organ minimalism and Cotch Blacks hypnotical percussion and youll get Betweens sound in a nut-shell. A mystical vision not removed from that of their contemporaries Popol Vuh that predated much of the new-age, meditation and world-music fusions that would blossom in the 80s. Originally released by Vertigo in 1973 and housed in a colourful psychedelic sleeve by Guntram Holdgrün, this is often regarded as Betweens most exotic and beautiful opus. A huge, majestic droning masterpiece with oriental nuances that might recall Popol Vuh, Fripp & Eno or Taj Mahal Travellers. Classic album from the early German 70s scene that deserves to be rediscovered by a wider audience. With Roberto C. Detrée (guitar, motocello, adapted harp), Robert Eliscu (oboe, oboe damore), Peter Michael Hamel (keyboards, vocals), Cotch Black (percussion) plus Duru Omson (bamboo flute, percussion, voice) and Fabian Arkus (electronics).

"We are proud to announce the reissue of the legendary The Book Of Am, a unique combination of recordings and artwork which stands up as an enduring testament of the fertile hippie scene which flourished in the Baleric islands during the seventies. Known to record collectors and psych/folk/prog music aficionados alike, this multicultural band formed in the island of Mallorca in the mid-70s and recorded a beautiful (and outrageously scarce) album which has gained cult status as years passed by. The Book Of Am was originally devised as a beautifully illustrated book focused on various world folklore and traditions, coupled with 4 LPs which would represent a musical. This (never completed) 4LP set would correspond to the four phases of day (Dawn, Morning, Afternoon, Night). Only the first of these records (Morning) would eventually see the light of day in a tiny private pressing which changes hands nowadays for obscene amounts of money. So now, alongside the reissue of the original Book Of Am album were very proud to present the first-ever release of the previously unissued Part II of the The Book Of Am, which leader Juan Arkotxa remastered recently from the original master tapes. Both albums are housed inside a 144-page book reproducing the original engravings by Juan Arkotxa, 64 of which are full color. Never released back in the day due to its high production costs, now, the central part of the The Book Of Am, can finally see the light of day. A round-the-world trip through the folklore, legends, lore and cosmogonies of some of the worlds cultures, from ancient Egypt to Celtic traditions." - Wah Wah.

"Juan Arkotxa, Leslie McKenzie, and Carmeta Mansilla have joined forces with Will Z (of Cosmic Trip Machine fame) to finish the great project that was The Book of Am. As you may know, a few years ago Wah Wah released the book including the only LP that was originally released back in the seventies (part I) plus adding an extra LP (part II) which had been recorded in the same era while the book was being created, but the book itself hadnt been previously released. Now, thanks to the help of Will Z, original Can Am des Puig residents Leslie and Juan, plus original contributor Carmeta have joined forces again to finish what was left unfinished. The main body of parts III and IV is formed by those songs written back in 1970s Ibiza and Mallorca that never reached the recording stage. Will Z has also written part of the music, and has helped with all arrangements having in mind the sound of the original sessions and respecting the musical feel and spirit of the original Book Of Am recordings. It sounds amazing and will not disappoint fans of parts I and II. Lovers of the previous Book of Am know what to expect and will not be disappointed! Comes in a gatefold sleeve with cloth-like stamped spine that includes the lyrics to the songs and some photos and reproductions of original engravings by Leslie and Juan." -Wah Wah.

“Juan Arkotxa, Leslie MacKenzie and Carmeta Mansilla were the creators of The Book Of Am. The Book Of Intxitxu was another of their works, they began working on its songs and illustrations just after they finished the four parts of The Book Of Am in the late 1970s. It contained, again, a collection of illustrations plus three hours of music. The book was first published in 1982 by Desclee de la Brouwer (Bilbao) in a bilingual Basque-Spanish edition. In 1983 IZ issued a cassette containing a selection of the songs sung in Basque by Juan. A part of it was later performed with mime artists at the short-lived Stonehenge Festival in 1983.
Conceptually it is again influenced by ancient myths and cults, you can find references to Sumerian hero Gilgamesh, the Meditarranean Moon Goddess cult, the hallucinogenic mushroom taker and healing woman from Oaxaca Maria Sabina, the works of Robert Graves, etc. Musically, it follows the ethereal folk path set by their previous works, with an acid atmosphere and a progressive appeal that offers some heavier psychedelic passages due to a higher use of electric guitar pyrotechnics.
Daevid Allen and Gilli Smyth guested as musicians, so heres one of his last recordings, as are also the last by Carmeta Mansilla, since sadly she also past away recently. Will Z, oG, Majnun and Sammyhelped Juan and Leslie rescue the old material and shape it into this gorgeous 2LP set with a 24 page booklet containing all the illustrations made for the Book.

"As K.J. Gustin wrote, Piece Of Mind is a work of exotic psychedelic free-jazz-meets-rock, East-meets-West, progressive and smoky moment in late Twentieth Century music history. Add to that a spice of jazzy brassed R&B and a touch of minor-key popsike sensitivity and you get an accurate description of the sounds contained in Roger Bunns astonishing 1969 LP, originally released in the UK on the Major Minor budget label, but issued in some European countries (Ohr label in Germany or Phillips in Holland) in a beautiful gatefold cover that is the one we choose for our reissue. When the LP was released in 1969, Roger Bunn was already a veteran British musician that had gained an astonishing CV since he began playing in the professional circuit. He spent the sixties moving through several outfits playing skiffle, jazz, beat, R&B, soul... whatever. As The Beatles did, he spent some of his forming time in Germany, playing with British formations there. A versatile musician on several instruments, he became a master of double bass. After the Piece Of Mind days he joined Pete Browns Piblotko!, played with members of Soft Machine, worked with Ornette Coleman, saw one of his songs recorded (though never officially released) by a major rock star like David Bowie and even became a founding member of Roxy Music for a short period in 1970-1971, among so many other things. An album that should be an essential addition to any collection that misses it, reissued in full colour gatefold sleeve, quality vinyl pressing and an insert with liner notes, with sound remastered by Denis Blackham at Skye Mastering in a strictly limited edition of ONLY 500 COPIES, made in loving memory of this great musician who passed away in 2005, that we expect to sell like hot bread.

"Roberto Cacciapaglia had already gathered attention for his excellent work at the keyboards on Franco Battiatos legendary second LP Pollution before joining forces with Krautrock mastermind Rolf Ulrich Kaiser for the release of his 1975 masterpiece Sonanze. Cacciapaglia self-produced the album in Milan for the Cosmic Couriers label, and it certainly brings echoes of some cosmiche kraut experiments like those of Popol Vuh, Klaus Schulze or Tangerine Dream, yet retaining a unique personality of its own. Actually its the feel given by Cacciapaglias mixture of classical sense compositions (he was trained in Milans Giuseppe Verdi conservatory) with adventurous experimentalism (he worked for the RAIs phonology research team and also at the CNR in Pisa) what makes the sound of Sonanze so unique. According to the Scented Gardens of the Mind book, good musical references might be Terry Riley, Franco Battiato (Sulle corde di Aries), Klaus Schulze (Cyborg) and William Scheller (Lux Aeterna).

Title: Clearlight Symphony
Format: LP
Label: Wah Wah
Country: Spain
Price: $29.00
"Through Tim Blake, Gongs synth player at the time (one of Bransons first artists), Cyrille Verdeaux signs for Virgin in 1974. That same year Clearlight Symphony is recorded (clearlight stands for a type of LSD). For its recording sessions Cyrille uses two different line-ups, each in charge of each of the two parts of the work. On one side theres ex Babylone members Christian Boule, Lard Frees Gilbert Artman and bassman Martin Isaacs. They record along with Verdeaux on Virgins Manor studio. The other side will be canned at Kaleidophon studios, ran by White Noises David Vorhaus, where Cyrille is joined by Gong members Tim Blake, Steve Hillage and Didier Malherbe. Verdeauxs original idea was to feature the Manor studio recordings on side A, but thinking heads at Virgin thought better to flip sides to make more profit of Gongs commercial success. A curious decision, since you normally dont promote an LP with the same strategy you would use for a single! Clearlight Symphony was released in 1975 with small echo in press and public, although it has nowadays reached a cult status among followers of the symphonic -- cosmic -- progressive genres. In what refers to its musical content, Clearlight Symphony is a completely opposed concept to that of the other project in which Verdeaux was involved at the time: the collective album Delired Chameleon Family (also reissued recently on Wah Wah Records), a brilliant psychedelic dive into the French underground of the seventies. Clearlight Symphony, instead, is a much more author-controled work, where all the musicians adapt themselves to Verdeauxs circular, systematic composition. The alleged and collected improvisations, dissonances and atonalities (superb Boule), the rhythmic tension of Artmans enigmatic, Heldonian drumming, Blakes environmental VCS3 modulations, Hillages content cosmicism, Verdeauxs crescendos and counterpoints -- plus echoes of Debussy, Terry Riley, Soft Machine, Magma, and why not, the aforementioned Tubular Bells. In short, a work of honesty, an album of its time." -Wah Wah.

Title: Planet of Man
Format: LP
Label: Wah Wah
Country: Spain
Price: $24.00
“Brothers Manfred and Wolfgang Schunke were pioneers of the Kunstkopf Stereophonie (artificial head, dummy head) binaural recording system. This recording technique was created in the Technical University of Berlin in 1974 with the aim to reproduce real stereo sound as the human ears perceive it. Human ears listen to the sounds in a concrete way that is affected not only by the sound frequencies themselves but also by the position of the listener in respect to the different sound sources. The Schunke brothers wanted to experiment this recording technique, and as early as 1974 they set their own kunstkopf recording studio, Delta Acustic, with the help of Klaus Schulze.
Code III was the vehicle for Manfred Schunke to explore the possibilities of kunstkopf recording. To do so, he joined forces with two Berlin-resident americans: Ed and Mary Key. Lyrically, Planet Of Man verses on the big theme of the creation of Earth, as The Crack In The Cosmic Egg book details it: "The music on PLANET OF MAN is a sonic depiction of the history of the Earth, from the void of empty space, via the formation of the planets, the evolution of life, through to mans domination of the planet, and ultimately back to the void. The opening and closing excursions, involving atmospheric electronics, injections of a dreamy folk song, and disembodied resonant female voice, hint a little at Braintickets CELESTIAL OCEAN, although the mood is much spookier. Confusingly "Dawn Of An Era" (the lyrics are sung in the previous track) involves what sounds like demented Neanderthals involved in some weird drum ritual. "Countdown" adds up to a blend of atmospheric electronics with abstract use of voice collage and effects (and Indian music), onto a remarkably clever accelerating space-rock burn-out featuring Klaus Schulze at the drum stool! Returning to weird space music at the end, it all adds up to a remarkable and unique album."
Planet Of Man was one of the six releases on the Delta Acustic label, all recorded using the Kunstkopf Stereophonie techniques. After that, the Schunke brothers would quit the studio and move to new adventures. Manfred continued experimenting with dummy head recording, he would work, among others, on albums by Can and also use his binaural engineering experience on Lou Reeds 1978 Lps Street Hassle and Take No Prisoners, among many others.
There were originally two different versions of the album, the Wah Wah edition reproduces the longer, uncut one. First ever official vinyl reissue, with remastered sound and an insert with liner notes curated by Wolfgang Schunke for the occasion.” - Wah Wah.

Price: $29.00
"Another lost gem of French underground music, Delired Cameleon Family was originally conceived as the soundtrack to Pierre Clémentis Visa de censure nº X, and was originally released as an LP in 1975. It was a host of reputed experimentalists who took charge of producing this soundtrack. Under the direction of Cyrille Verdeaux we found the likes of Yvan Coaquette (Música Electrónica Viva, Spacecraft...), Gilbert Artman (Lard Free, Urban Sax...), Christian Boulé, Tim Blake (Gong, solo recordings...), Ariel Kalma (Heldon, solo recordings), Jean-Claude dAgostini, François Jeanneau, Jean Padovani, Olivier Pamela, Joël Dugrenot, Antoine Duvernet, Aude Cornillac and Valérie Lagrange. Cyrille Verdeaux was, of course, the main force behind the better known French band Clear Light. Verdeaux was born the 31st of July of 1949 in Paris. At the age of 15 he became a student at the French National Conservatory of Music, specialising in studies of harmony, composition and piano. He won three times the first prize in student composition. After the 1968 student riots he left the Conservatory to join a band as a keyboardist. In 1972 he released Clearlight Symphony, thus forming the band Clear Light to tour through Europe performing his symphony. Clear Light would release three more LPs through the 70s, and also the soundtrack to Visa De Censure. The music form Delired Cameleon Family, as it has been told somewhere, is the synthesis of pianos technical, epic scales, psychedelic wah wah guitar sounds and electronic cosmic, molecular machines arrangements. We are proud to add this great experimental trippy soundtrack to the Wah Wah catalogue, reissued in cool vinyl, with remastered sound, housed in a faithful reproduction of the original sleeve and complete with an insert with liner notes and photos.

“After having served in the rich Swedish beat 1960s scene as a member of The Ghostriders and We 4, a.o., at the end of the decade Hans Edler became one of the pioneers of psychedelic electronic sounds experimentation in Europe. His "Elektron Kukéso" LP is a landmark in the genre. Released in 1971, it featured his explorations in electronic avant-garde music from the period 1969-1971. It was recorded at the Electronic Music Studio foundation, one of the worlds most advanced studios in the era, and one of the few prepared for the creation of electronic music."
"Since the original LP was pretty short, seven bonus tracks not appeared on the original release have been added. These songs predate the LP tracks and are from 1969 / 1970. Remastered sound, an insert with photos and liner notes complete this great reissue of this legendary Swedish electronics LP.” - Wah Wah.
"Influenced by the works of Karl-Heinz Stockhausen and using techniques similar to those of Pierre Henry or Raymond Scott, Edler brought a psychedelic edge into electronic music just like Silver Apples had done in the USA. The album has also a strong rock attitude plus a certain pop sensitivity in some passages, not far from that of David Axelrods, which confers it a distance from what used to be the more serious appeal of what most electronic pioneers had been doing, giving the album an accessivity that is closer to the electronic hits of artists such as Gershon Kingsley, Jean-Jacques Perrey or Dick Hyman. However, be it because of the songs being sung in Swedish or the outsider reputation Edler seems to have in the Swedish musical scene, this great LP remained an obscurity - hardly spoken of outside a small circle of connoisseurs and collectors.
"It really doesnt get much better than this. In these days of harsh turmoil to uncover a rock & roll sweetheart like Hans Edler it really proves the gods to be smiling. Bonafide electronic experimentation with a heart full of pop is a love potion most desirable. Listen to the religious Brian Wilson-meets-Jandek orayer hymns of young Edler and travel to a time when long haired girls and dope-laced boys were truly getting it "on". The hybrid fascination of electronic space composition and soul sweet pop-love in such a fresh state has me floating to my tombstone cloud." -Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth).
"Hans Edlers Elektron Kukéso reflects a man who, musically speaking, is in a world of his own. Edlers music seem to be totally uninfluenced by the music of his day. On the contrary, Edler seemed to be making up his own musical rules, and if the rest of the world didnt follow, that was probably fine with him. As for his tunes...(they)... resemble folk music, but in a strange, contorted way. I have never heard an album that is so devoid of musical influence of others, and to me, thats what makes it remarkable." - Dana Countryman (Cool and Strange Music Magazine).

"Out of the mysterious mind of Andrea Centazzo came Elektriktus. Originally released on the PDU label, the LP Electronic Mind Waves offers a collection of eight synth-fueled songs that sound very close to what kraut/cosmische heads were doing at the time, think of Conrad Schnitzler, Deuter or Cosmic Jokers, and also other European experimentalists like Richard Pinhas Heldon, Spacecraft, Didier Bocquet, Seesselberg, F.G. Experimental Laboratory, Roberto Cacciapaglia or Hydrus. Along with Cacciapaglia and Hydrus, Elektriktus shows the most adventurous experimental sounds under a kraut/cosmische music influence to ever come out of Italy. Centazzo was already a highly experienced musician when he produced this LP in his home studio in 1976. He had been the drummer on Giorgio Gasslinis Quartet, with whom he also recorded several LPs, and also on his own jazz band Ictus (actually the name Elektriktus came out of melting his electronic experiments with his former bands name). Hes actually one of the key names from the Italian improv/free-jazz scene and the driving force behind the ICTUS label. Strongly recommended to fans of minimal electronic music, kosmische sounds and ambient soundscapes.

Were proud to offer the first four albums by one of the longest running bands in the history of German rock: Embryo. Formed around the core of jazz vibrafonist Christian Burchard and drummer Dieter Serfas, the band started their career in Munich in 1969. 40 years later, more than 300 musicians have passed thru their ranks, from their colleagues of Amon Duül II (Lother Meid, Chris Karrer, Jimmy Jackson), Xhol (Hansi Fischer), Between (Roberto Detree, Peter Hamel) to renowned jazzmen (Charlie Mariano, Mal Waldron) or countless musicians from around the world (Yoruba Dun Dun Orchester, Okay Temiz & Oriental Wind, Karnataka College Of Percussion, Mahmoud Gania, Xizhi Nie), making Embryo an ever-changing but always interesting collective of musicians. This is where it all began. Originally released by Ohr in 1970, Embryos legendary debut was an inventive piece of progressive jazz-rock spiced-up with free moves and soaked in a late 60s psychedelic atmosphere. The original blueprint which gave birth to the jazzier-end of Krautrock (Xhol, Kollektiv, Thirsty Moon, Kraan...). An absolutely must-have for any Krautrock buff and one of the best Ohr albums!

“Formed by multi-instrumentalists Hans Reffert (Flute) and Hans Brandeis (Voice) in Mannheim in 1969, the Flute & Voice duo discographic debut was issued on Pilz that same year. Their second album was originally recorded in 1973, but it remained unreleased for 22 years until Jack Wieber Records issued it on CD in 1995 as part of a 2 album CD (along with Imaginations Of Light) and now available on vinyl LP format through Wah Wah. But some more material was composed in 1974/1975 and recorded, albeit never going further than the demo stage. Those old tapes showed a further evolution from the previous recordings. They had, of course, the same basic concept, but more intrincate structures and technical challenges were taken. When Brandeis and Reffert met in 1995 to prepare the reissue of Flute & Voice plus Hallo Rabbit on CD they rescued these tapes and thought of chosing the best tracks to re-record them in a proffessional studio. This was done between February and June of 1996 and the results conform Drachenlieder, an album that does not pale in comparison with its predecessors, and one that you wouldnt have thought it was recorded in the nineties if we havent told you as it keeps the excitement, feeling and sound of their 70s recordings.
"We were on a continuous search for something “new.” “This guy is cool, he’s got it...” or “That one is uncool...” were the two main criteria for us to distinguish two categories of musicians: the inven tive, artistic creators of new sounds and the success-oriented plagiators of “commercial” mainstream music. Rarely did we accept other musicians as birds of the same feather, like e.g. the Scottish Incredible String Band or the American Oregon Ensemble – sometimes, but mostly never." (From Hans Brandeis website)
"It was our goal that all our musical compositions should differ from each other as much as possible. Therefore, we adopted elements and ideas from most diverse music traditions and styles – at that time, just like today, an attitude completely opposed to commercial interests." (From Hans Brandeis website)
"For special stage performances and recording sessions, musicians from very different lines joined us: soul and jazz saxophone player Thomas Böhmer, the Indian tabla player Bal Kulkarni who also had played with the Beatles sometime, Ron Martin, the black percussion player from the States, cellist and drummer Clemens Schuster and violin player Dorle Ferber, to name just a few."
"Our approach to music as well as the content of our song lyrics of that time clearly reflected the zeitgeist of the late 1960s: a growing awareness for the social aspects of music and the responsibilities of musicians, hippie values, mind-expansion... Regarding the music, however, we consistently fell between all stools: the jazzers would say that our music was rock, the rockers would regard it as jazz; the folk people considered it as avantgarde music, the avantgarde musicians, however, stated that “now – this is really nothing but pure light music,” and for the musical entertainers, finally, it was a “noble (but lost) art” – for many a one, our music was just too complicated, for others just too naive... Our concept, therefore, was more a kind of “anti-concept:” not wanting to move from one point to another, but to expand from one point into all directions." (From Hans Brandeis website) Krautrock meets world music, heady psychedelic jazz, ethnic explorations.

"Formed by multi-instrumentalists Hans Reffert (Flute) and Hans Brandeis (Voice) in Mannheim in 1969, the Flute & Voice duo discographic debut was issued on Pilz in 1970. It featured a progressive mixture of ethnic influences and accoustic experimentations making it one of the most sought after pieces from krautrocks most underground scene. Hans Reffert was already considered one of the best guitarists in the Mannheim/Heidelberg area, having played banjo since the age of 12 and then studied with guitar master Siegfriend Schwab, and when he joined forces with Hans brandeis the two experimented with various instruments and voices to find their sound. Imaginations Of Light features a wide range of different tools to make a whole sound spectrum that melts psyched out folk with experimental jazz and world music. Flutes and voices, obviously, are joined by different types of guitars (acoustic, electric, dobro...), electric bass and sitar, all performed by the two Hanses, plus cello, violin and moroccan percussions courtesy of guest musicians Clemens Schuster (cello), Dorle Ferber and Julia Gallwitz (violins) and Guru Gurus Mani Neumeier (percussions - Reffert himself played some years in Guru Guru during the eighties).
Their second album, Hallo RabbitI, originally recorded in 1973, only saw the life as a test pressing that, at the time, was rejected by BASF for release. And so it remained in the vaults until Jack Wieber Records issued it on CD in 1995 as part of a 2 album CD (along with Imaginations Of Light). It shows a progression that some sources have noted to be a more direct and clearly structured sound, but obviously without any concessions to their principles of experimentation in sound, use of different instrumental textures, and their rich ethnic background.

"The first album by this mythical Andalusian multi-instrumentalist, member of the legendary Smash, recorded in 1971 in Barcelona (another nice example of the fertile connection between the scenes in Seville and Barcelona at the beginning of the seventies), it remained unreleased until 1978 (when it appeared as one part of the double LP El Nacimiento Del Rock En Andalucía). Rescued by Wah Wah thirty years after, the album shows Gualberto in a phase of creative definition, half-way Smashs powerful sound and unique mix of psych & folk with some oriental touch (Gualbertos ubiquitous sitar and Jessicas characteristic vocals) which will became his trademark in forthcoming LPs. (A La Vida - Al Dolor, Vericuetos). Without a doubt, one of the unknown treasures of Sevilles early psych/prog scene... Limited issue of 500 numbered copies w/ gatefold cover." - Wah Wah

Format: LP

Country: Spain
Price: $24.00
“A few years ago we were lucky to be allowed to reissue some of Peter Michael Hamel works. Two LPs by Between (And The Waters Opened - now deleted - and Einstieg -a few copies still available) and the great Hamel 2LP (also deleted!) joined the Wah Wah catalogue. We would have wanted to go for the Voice Of The Silence too, an now we have finally got the kind permission to go for it.
Here is a much needed reissue of the sought after second LP by Peter Michael Hamel, originally released on the collectable Vertigo label in 1973. Hamels experimentation with meditative and minimalist sounds is a further field of exploration for those into the likes of Terry Riley, LaMonte Young, Popol Vuh, Taj Mahal Travellers or Deuter - and will also appeal to those with interest in ambient and meditation musics.
From "A Few Thoughts on Composer PMH" by Terry Riley: "...Peters heart did not seem to be aligned alone with the post Webern traditions that had emerged so prevalently in Germany. His sensibilities were attracted more to American minimalism and Indian music and to some degree Rock and Jazz. In this sense he stands apart in the field of modern music of Germany. He has recognized the vast importance of improvisation and being in the moment in music performance. He realizes the importance of experimentation and of finding new ways to notate his ideas. However, his music is at the same time rooted in the great German tradition and today he is recognized as a major figure whose compositions have greatly enriched the development of 20th and 21st century."
Originally released in Vertigo in 1973, the Wah Wah reissue will come housed in a textured sleeve reproducing the original artwork, remastered sound, and feature an insert with photos and liner notes. Limited edition of only 500 copies.” - Wah Wah.

Title: Agneta Nilsson
Format: LP
Label: Wah Wah
Country: Spain
Price: $29.00
"After our acclaimed reissues of the previous three LPs by Richard Pinhas project Heldon, here is their fourth LP originally issued on Disjuncta/Urus in 1976. Agneta Nilsson is an interesting step in Heldons development: it gives a twist to their classic sound, which was mainly built around Pinhas Fripp-esque guitar work and ambient synth experiments to begin to explore a more rhythmic territory. Drums and bass take more presence here, offering a rockier feel, but somehow retaining the mysterious ambience of its predecessors, while adding an extra touch of sinister aggressiveness. Featuring among others Magmas keyboardist, Patrick Gauthier, it starts pretty much in the same ambient, spacey, minimalist electronic mood of the previous Heldon releases, but as the development of the main title Perspective goes ahead the move towards the more guitar and drums sound of the next to come Heldon sound is evident. Agneta Nilssons sound has been described somewhere as a more sinister Tangerine Dream mixed with a more jammy King Crimson. Our reissue comes housed in a faithful reproduction of the original sleeve. It is made in a strictly limited edition of only 500 copies." -Wah Wah

Title: Électronique Guerilla
Format: LP + 7"
Label: Wah Wah
Country: Spain
Price: $29.00
"After our string of releases centered around the diverse German 70s scene, were happy to introduce the next installment in the Wah Wah LPS reissue series. This time we move over to France to re-discover the beginnings of one of the most adventurous, influential and innovative French bands of the seventies: Heldon. Centered around guitarist Richard Pinhas and featuring a floating cast of regular collaborators (Didier Batard, François Auger, Patrick Gauthier, Alain Renaud, Georges Grunblatt; Coco Roussel amongst others), Heldon will marry Pinhas personal obsessions of modern philosophy (Deleuze, Guattari), science-fiction (Norman Spinrad, Philip K.Dick), progressive rock (King Crimson, Fripp & Eno), American minimalism (Terry Riley, Steve Reich) and electronic music into a diverse musical cocktail that goes from the violent to the relaxed, but always retaining a dark and mysterious vibe. Often linked by critics and listeners to the experimental German bands of the era (Tangerine Dream, Ash Ra Tempel..), Heldon will release six crucial albums before being closed down by Pinhas in the late 70s. Since then, Pinhas has developed a long solo career that lives up to this day, releasing several albums and collaborations (Pascal Comelade, John Livengood, Maurice Dantec), including with Japanese noise king Merzbow. Dedicated to Robert Wyatt, Heldons debut contained a puzzling collection of tracks that serve as a perfect introduction to Pinhas universe: science-fiction, philosophy and musical experimentation collide in a harsh lo-fi tapestry of sounds dominated by Pinhas 1954 Gibson Les Paul guitar and AKS synth. Not unlike some contemporary German bands, Heldon manages to take rock n rolls language to a new experimental stage. Convulsive and evocative soundscapes recommended to all lovers of innovative and ground-breaking music. Strictly limited to 500 copies. High quality sleeves reproducing the original artwork from 1974s first press on Disjuncta. Includes insert with extra liner notes by Spanish journalist and long-time Heldon fan Paco Peiró. Bonus 7" EP with tracks taken from Heldons predecessor band Schizos two EPs. 7" tracklist: A1. Schizo (and the little girl) A2. Paraphrenia Praecox (originally released in 1972) B1. Le Voyageur B2.

For those of you following our line of releases there will be no need to say that composer, guitarist & electronics innovator Richard Pinhas is recognized as one of Frances major experimental musicians and is a pivotal figure in the development of electronic rock. This third delivery of Heldons works was first released on Disjuncta in 1975 as a double LP and features Richard Pinhas (ARP & VCS3 Synthesizers, guitars, bass, Mellotron) and George Grunblatt (Mellotron, guitars) plus contributions from some other greats of the genre like Patrick Gauthier (ARP synthesizers), Gilbert Artman (of Lard Free fame on drums), Jean My Truong (also on drums) and Ariel Kalma (Indian Harmonium).

With the help of Conny Plank, they recorded their one and only LP at Hamburgs Windrose-Studios: four long instrumental tracks in a hypnotic style that takes cues both from the teutonic motorik style and way-out jazz techniques. Kind of a floating cosmic fusion sound with a great emphasis on the rhythmic section.

"Before his magnificent experiments with electronic music on Elektrictus (previously reissued on Wah Wah), Andrea Centazzo was already an accomplished musician who had issued his recorded works on the PDU and RCA labels. His first release was Ictus, a free-form avantgarde jazz oddessey on which he already started to experiment with electronic generated sounds.
Ictus was a band formed by Centazzo, Armando Battiston and Franco Feruglio, although back in the day the sleeve of the PDU release credited the work only to Centazzo, and as if Ictus was simply the title of the album. This was a big mistake that we have been asked to correct in our reissue.
A brave drummer and percussionist, on this album Centazzo also played flute, synths and sang. He was joined on some tracks by Franco Feruglio on bass and double bass and Armando Battiston on keyboards. It has been compared to Soft Machines Third or Wolfgang Dauners Et Cetera.
It was originally released in 1974 and it gets its first ever vinyl reissue here, housed in a gatefold cover in a 500 copies limited edition. " - Wah Wah.

"Bernard Ilous came from a music lovers family, his parents were into jazz and classical music and the young Ilous inherited that sensitivity to the point of teaching himself to play guitar and piano. He discovered R&R and started doing covers of The Beatles and Bob Dylan, but he soon showed skills to write his own compositions. He showed his work to music publisher Gerard Tavernier who signed him to his company and thus some of Ilous songs appeared on LPs by Francoise Hardy, Eric Charden, Johnny Hallyday, Dick Rivers, a.o. In 1969 his friend Claude Putterflam left his job at Vogue to create Flamophone records and he produced a single for Ilous, who was willing to release his own songs by himself. Very soon Ilous joined forces with Patrice Decuyper with whom he would record the amazing LP on offer here. Issued also on Flamophone in July 1971, its blend of folk & pop brings to mind echoes of The Beatles, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young or Joni Mitchell. The sound on the LP is amazing, they took one whole year to produce it, as they were using free studio hours now and then to stay into a budget, and they played most of the guitars and keyboards and were helped by friends from Le Systeme Crapoutchik on other instruments. The production is excellent and the compositions are amazing, probably one of the most impressive French-sung LPs of all time, and a must for lovers of 60s and 70s perfectly arranged & produced, well crafted works. It is reissued on vinyl for the first time since its original release, mastered from the original tapes and featuring a bonus 7" containing the two songs from their 1972 non-LP single plus an insert with liner notes.

With all kind of sound effects coming from distorted clarinets, Hammond organ, groovy bass/drums section, breaks and hot guitar licks The Mad Rockers paved the way for many Krautrockers to follow. Reissued in vinyl for the first time since its 1969 debut on the Metronome label, this is a basic record to showcase the rich mixture of different styles that would make the 70s German music scene so unique and appealing. The Kühn Brothers, Rolf and Joachim, were at first reluctant to the reissue of this amazing LP. They are highly trained musicians with a huge experience and a big sense of innovation and they felt they have many works which are much better than this one, which undoubtedly they do have since they started being really young and are still at it nowadays, but here at Wah Wah we do feel The Mad Rockers album is a landmark in krautrock story, since it anticipates the path that would be travelled by so many legendary krautsters of the seventies. Everything is there, the adventurous mixture of styles so diverse as psychedelic rock, jazz, funk... You name it, you find it. Plenty of excellent breaks, experimental in the quest for new sounds, with instruments run through distortion effects, the musicians involved are all key figures in the development of modern European of its era. You have Volker Kriegel, who besides his own solo recordings shall also be remembered for his great contributions to Dave Pike Sets classic albums or his work with Klaus Doldinger. There is Stu Martin, drummer also on other interesting projects like The Free Pop Experimental Concept also reissued on Wah Wah. Plus Günter Lenz on bass, jazz master who has worked among others with names like Krzysztof Komeda, Lighting Hopkins, Chet Baker, Coleman Hawkins or Olivier Nelson, and he has even done orchestral arrangements for Plácido Domingo!

“Music that moves like smoke and incapacitates your defenses as only the “It was 1977, the year when punk rock exploded in the face of disco-music, but some thinking heads in Italy managed to escape the set trends of the year and walk a totally different path. Pioneers like Franco Battiato had already been experimenting with a crash of rock and electroacoustic music since the beginning of the decade, and others like Roberto Cacciapaglia or Riccardo Zappa would explore farther in those lands, mixing acoustic instruments with the bourgeoning synth technology. Among all these artists, an obscure little gem missed the attention it deserved: Integrati… Disintegrati, by Francesco Leprino, is undoubtedly one of the best albums of the genre. More freely unchained from the prog rock links that albums like Battiatos celebrated Fetus and Pollution LPs or Zappas Celestion still retain, Leprino merges a very pure classical instrumentation of Spanish guitar, piano and flute with more modern electric guitar sounds, 12 string guitar and -of course- a V.C.S. 3 and Moog synths background that creates highly avantgarde atmospheres. Binson tape echoes, Hammond and Thomas organs, oboes, vibraphone and other additional instruments add texture richness to the final mix.
An outstanding opus split through both sides of an LP in two 20 minutes long pieces that has become a much sought after album among collectors. It will appeal those interested in the development of synth music, beautiful athmosferic landscapes and electronic-acoustic orchestrated sounds.

Title: Electronic Music To Blow Your Mind By
Format: LP
Label: Wah Wah
Country: Spain
Price: $30.00
"KILLER exploito psych LP from 1968 by the Love Machine, “Electronic Music to Blow Your Mind By!!!” – and trust me, it CAN be done – on the Design label. One of the harder-to-find exploito-psych albumswith an absolutely KILLER psychedelic cover. Like all these studio cash-in albums, you need to approach this one in the right state of mind, and by that I mean altered. But the great thing about these budget albums is that someone behind the controls seems to be trying out ALL the latest psychedelic effects – stereo panning, phasing and whatever electronic gadgetry they had left over from the last timeBeaver and Krause blew through town. And so, if you can get past the fact that no REAL bands were involved here, this is still one heck of a BLAST to listen to! The Love Machine add in a steady stream ofouter space synth and moog sounds, like some rejected soundtrack to an episode of “Star Trek” (the original one, kids, with William Shatner), all echoed and delayed in suitably “cosmic” fashion.

Remastered sound, killer sleeve with backflaps and limited to 500 copies only!" - Wah Wah.

Title: Mad Curry
Format: LP + 7"
Label: Wah Wah
Country: Spain
Price: $32.00
"Founded in Belgium in 1970 with a remarkable line-up for a rock band: sax, organ, bass, drums and vocals - no guitar!, Mad Curry caught the attention of manager & enterpreneur Louis de Vries (the man who had arranged the very first Pink Floyd gig in Belgium) and soon debuted with the "Song for Cathreen" / "Antwerp" 45. "Antwerp" has become a club favourite ever since due to its danceable freakbeat psych rhythm.
Shortly after, the Mad Curry album was released on the Pirate label, characterized by repeated time signatures that give a progressive feeling. Sax and organ bring a specific jazzy element in the performance and the unique high bluesy voice of Viona Westra is very recognizable. All this supported by a solid rhythm team which adds a psychedelic rock base to the mix. The album was housed in a beautiful, very original fold-out cover made by Jef Winnepenninckx. If you are into the sounds of UK bands like Affinity or Ghost do not miss this splendid classic of the Belgian underground scene.
First ever vinyl reissue, the Wah Wah edition is made with the help of Louis de Vries & the band, and comes with the bonus PS 7" of "Song For Cathleen" / "Antwerp", a reproduction of the gorgeous six panel fold-out sleeve and an insert with liner notes by Herman Permentier and cool unseen photos.

Price: $32.00
"Recorded in 1971 and issued originally only in France by CBS, the first LP by post Spoils Of War band Mormos is a masterpiece of fabulous experimental psychedelic acid folk sounds and bizarre melodies. Influences from contemporaries such as The Incredible String Band are present, as are some resemblances to the recordings of other acts like Comus or Dr. Strangely Strange, but the Mormos sound creates unique athmospheres unheard in any other works of the era that can be fragile and weird in equal parts.
Jim Cuomo formed Mormos after his Spoils Of War project. The new group moved to France where they recorded two albums, "Great Wall Of China" being the first, now reissued in full glory in cooperation with Cuomo himself and with the upgrade of bonus tracks and a 7" EP and, of course, an insert with some notes from Jim Cuomo.

"1971 Spanish album that featured the talent of three of the most significant musicians from the Catalonian underground movement of the late sixties: Jaume Sisa, J.M. Brabo El Cachas and Albert Batiste, who after their Miniatura project with Pau Riba were joined by young hippie girl Selene. This sole effort by the group is a masterpiece of melodic tunes that pay a tribute to the English folk movement of the era, as it does to the early Amon Duüls freak out sound concept . Echoes of The Incredible String Band are present mainly in the guitar parts; drums are absent in all but one track on which they are played by Josep M Vilaseca Tapi, of Máquina & Tapiman fame, but percussion, harmonica, organ, mouth harp, piano and wordless vocals are heard throughout the album, as is Selenes flute work. All in all this is a strange, relaxing little piece of underground from Barcelonas early seventies hippie youth that has become a classic of Spanish pop music; available in a 1000 copies only strictly limited edition that respects the original gatefold artwork, including the slight relief of the cover illustration. Extensive liner notes and photographs." - MMS. Highly Recommended!

Housed in a plain blue sleeve with the title stamped on front, 500 copies were pressed, some to be sent to record companies with the hope of getting a proper contract and others to be sold at gigs and a few of them at local Maryland shops.

"Wolfgang Orschakowski is one of the most free spirits of the krautrock underground. Hailing from Hamburg, he has been producing music, paintings and all other kinds of artistic projects for the past four decades, always active with dozens of new projects boiling inside his head. Zippo Zetterlink In The Poor Sun, originally released in 1971 as a self produced private pressing that is nowadays impossible to find unless you are ready to pay some amounts of money in the collectors market, was his first ever release. It is at last reissued in vinyl, a properly licensed edition done with the kind cooperation of Wolfgang himself and housed in an exact repro of its original sleeve.
The music contained could be taken as the seed to Orschakowskis music world : free-form underground sounds, a way-out trip through expansive guitar riffs and strumming, hypnotic bass lines, killer drum breakbeats and elusive percussion, plus the occasional vocal, some blues freak-out and psychedelic effects. It will appeal to fans of other kraut classics like Amon Düüls Psychedelic Underground, early Guru Guru and the likes.

Title: Aguirre
Format: LP
Label: Wah Wah
Country: Spain
Price: $31.00
"Werner Herzogs 1972 film Aguirre, The Wrath Of God was the first collaboration between the famed director and Popol Vuh. Florian Fricke was approached by old friend Herzog to do the soundtrack for his third movie. Three years later, in 1975, after the international success of Herzogs film, Popol Vuh issued the LP Aguirre. It featured material recorded for the movie plus some other songs. Some of them recorded prior to 1975 - the Aguirre soundtrack ones, of course, plus there is the presence of the big Moog from Popol Vuhs early albums, and also contains Morgengruss II, an update of the Morgengruss song that had prevously appeared on Ensjäger Und Siebenjäger.
"Popol Vuhs “hypnotic music” for Aguirre met with considerable acclaim. Roger Ebert wrote, “The music sets the tone. It is haunting, ecclesiastical, human and yet something else... The music is crucial to Aguirre, the Wrath of God..." AllMusic noted, “The films central motif blends pulsing Moog and spectral voices conjured from Florian Frickes Mellotron-related "choir organ" to achieve something sublime, in the truest sense of the word: its hard not to find the musics awe-inspiring, overwhelming beauty simultaneously unsettling. The power of the legendary opening sequence of Herzogs film...owes as much to Popol Vuhs music as it does to the directors mise-en-scène.”
Herzog explained how the choir-like sound was created, "We used a strange instrument, which we called a “choir-organ.” It has inside it three dozen different tapes running parallel to each other in loops. ... All these tapes are running at the same time, and there is a keyboard on which you can play them like an organ so that [it will] sound just like a human choir but yet, at the same time, very artificial and really quite eerie."
In 1975, Popol Vuh released an album entitled Aguirre. Although ostensibly a soundtrack album to Herzogs film, the six-track LP included only two songs ("Aguirre I (LAcrime Di Rei)" and "Aguirre II") taken from Aguirre, the Wrath of God. The four remaining tracks were derived from various recordings done by the group c. 1972–1974. At the time of Aguirre, the band members were Fricke (piano, Mellotron), Fichelscher (electric guitar, acoustic guitar, drums), Djong Yun (vocals), and Robert Eliscu (oboe, pan pipe)." (Wikipedia)
Werner Herzog: “The music in my films is also very much neglected, if I may interrupt you, in Germany as well. Since AGUIRRE, my friend Florian Fricke, has done the music for almost all my films - for STEINER, for LA SOUFRIERE, for STROSZEK, and for HEART OF GLASS - and Ive tried to push very hard so that he would be given the National Film Award this year. Theyve never given it to him, and there has been complete neglect of his work. Not even a single mention! And this year they just by-passed him once again!” [From: Images at the Horizon, 1979]
Popol Vuh has been nominated three times for an Oscar for best original score: 1972 (Aguirre), 1979 (Nosferatu) and 1987 (Cobra Verde).
There have been several different editions of Aguirre and each has varied slightly or quite a lot from the original issue. Several reissues change the last track (the 17 minute long Vergegenwärtigung) to include material from other Popol Vuh albums, even in cases the song is listed on the sleeve the music is from completely different sources. Thanks to the accurate archive work of SPV on offer here is the original version of the album as it was first released in 1975.

It features the classic trio of Florian Fricke, Daniel Fichelscher and Djong Yun, plus the help of Amon Düüls Al Gromer. The theme of the album is taken from biblical passages, using verses from King Salomons tales on The Old Testament. The music is superb, great guitar soloing, amazing percussion work and the mesmerizing voice of Djong Yun on nine songs that echo previous works, mostly Einsjäger..., but also Hosianna Mantra comes to mind here and there. A perfectly balanced record that merges progrock sounds, eastern influences through the use of sitar and tabla and spiritual meditation.

“Letzte Tage, Letzte Nächte is probably the most "rock" sounding work of Popol Vuhs production. Recorded by the classic trio of Fricke, Fichelscher and Yun, plus Ted de Jong on tamboura and Amon Düül members Al Gromer on sitar and Renate Knaup on additional vocals, its sounds seem to be more based on power than on ambient. Strong guitar passages emphasize this, with Fischelschers playing being harder than the Conny Veit ethereal parts on earlier records. The title track is also the first time that Popol Vuh record English words on a song.” - Wah Wah.
"With his blistering and emotional guitar work Fichelscher made his mark on many of the Popol Vuh albums. An album like "Letzte Tage, letzte Nachte"(1976 ) would not be possible without him. But also this album would be impossible without multi-tracking, a technique that Popol Vuh was heavily dependent on throughout their existence. This album shows Popol Vuh from its most rocking and dynamic side. But even here it is evident that a remarkable spiritualism defines the music. In a down-to-earth way Fricke wanted his music to be a "healing force", an "uplifting experience for the human soul". This spiritual quality is inherent and constitutive for all the music he made during his career. This proves Fricke was successful in communicating these intentions to the musicians involved." - Dolf Mulder.

“The story of the Nosferatu soundtrack editions through the years appears a little caotic. Several editions, with several sleeves and completely different tracklists have appeared in different countries. What we tried to offer here is the definitive edition of Popol Vuhs works for this fantastic Werner Herzog 1979 tribute to the old Murnau classic. When asked for a new soundtrack for Herzogs project, Florian Fricke and Daniel Fichelscher came out with a magnificent album that once again, as it had happened with Hosianna Mantra, opened new paths to follow. The album, although having been recorded with the movie in mind, was not titled Nosferatu. Instead it was released as Brüder des Schattens - Söhne des Lichts, which can be translated as "Brother Of Darkness - Son Of Light". It first came out in 1978 featuring amazing new age / ambient escapades based on repetitive passages and instrumentation of incredible beauty, recorded with the help of Al Gromer (Amon Düül) on sitar, Bob Eliscu (Between) on oboe, Ted de Jong on tamboura plus a complete church choir ensemble from Munich. Brüder des Schattens..., also issued in other editions as Nosferatu, makes disc one on this gorgeous double LP set.
Disc two of the Wah Wah edition features the LP that was originally released as the Nosferatu Original Sound Track album, also known as On The Way To A Little Way. A 1978 release, although it contained material recorded prior to that date. Right in the middle of the film production, Herzog felt he needed more music and asked Fricke for obscure, scary material. He searched the Popol Vuh archives and compiled the great collection that Nosferatu / On The Way... is. It came out a varied selectionç where older Moog tracks mix with more reflexive material that already gives clues of whats to come in Brüder des Schattens... Nevertheless, despite all the variety -or maybe thanks to it,- Nosferatu / On The Way To... turned out to be a fantastic, classic Popol Vuh album. We have added one bonus track previously unreleased in vinyl format.

"Recorded in 1968 and issued as a very limited run private pressing this psychedelic raga freak-out is the brainchild of multi disciplinar artist Loren Standlee plus his partner Ziska with the cooperation of Daevid Allen and Gilli Smith in what was an early incarnation of Gong. Loren and Ziska had been involved with the crowd of avantgardist free thinkers that settled in Formentera in the sixties, and back home in N.Y. they had also been connected to experimentalists such as Angus Maclise, Marian Zazeela, Tony Conrad, Henry Flynt, Pandit Pran Nath, a.o. This bizarre selection of sounds was the brainchild of Loren Standlee and Ziska and features a very early Gong incarnation. Loren Standlee and Ziska were among the “Formentera” (small Island near Ibiza, Spain) visionary poets, musicians and psychedelic ‘researchers’ in the early sixties. In Paris, they began hand-painting silk and designing clothes for many of the rock luminaries of the time, among them The Beatles, Rolling Stones, and Jimi Hendrix, as well as haute couture designers in Paris and London. They met Daevid Allen and Gilli Smyth at a poetry reading where Loren was playing Alto Flute and Ziska was creating vocal sounds to intermix with the flute. They began playing together as a group utilizing Daevid’s Italian echo chambers and soon they had a two-night-a-week gig playing at the Vielle Grille, an avant guard club in Paris where you might hear Ornette Coleman playing upstairs or see Yoko Ono performing in a sack on stage..

Gong was formed and took two identities: one, only Daevid Allen and Gilli Smyth’s material, and the other, the Gong sound of Daevid on ‘space’ guitar, crystals, feathers and other unpredictable objects, Loren on alto flute and jews harp, and Ziska and Gilli doing space whispering chanting sounds which built up to sound climaxes. For the time, it was extremely avant guard, and culminated in a gig to perform at Diane Von Furstenberg’s wedding where the group took LSD and both shocked and beguiled the party by performing for two hours, dressed in Loren and Ziskas hand-painted silks and making sounds that no one had ever heard before. It put them into a kind of cult status..

They were invited to perform at the Museum of Modern Art in Stockholm in 1967, where they once again stunned the audience with their not-heard-or-seen before sound and look. The great Don Cherry joined them at the end of the performance..

Because Daevid and Gilli had visa problems, they couldn’t return to Paris, and the group split up after Stockholm. Gong was re-formed elsewhere with new people. Loren and Ziska returned to Paris and then left for New York. In New York, they met Ira Cohen, poet, mylar photographer, and the creator of the cult classic film The Invasion of Thunderbolt Pagoda. Quoting from Ira Cohen: “Sheldon and Diane Rochlin had just finished their great film on Vali, the witch of Positano, and were working on (their next film) Dope. Loren Standlee and Ziska, who had been in Dope, stepped into the magic mirror and became charter members of the “Universal Mutants”. It was then that I realized we were a special group of dedicated visionaries, electronic multi - media Shamans…”. Two of the tracks on the bonus LP, feature the line-up of Loren, Ziska and Raj Samyana, which is basically The Universal Mutant Repertory Company minus Angus Maclise and his wife Hetty..

The Universal Mutant Repertory Company are most known as a group that included drummer Angus  MacLise, multimedia avant-gardist who was the original drummer of the Velvet Underground. The Company were formed in the late 1960s, and included MacLise, his wife Hetty MacLise (on organ, tanpura, and probably other instruments), Loren Standlee (alto flute), Ziska Baum (Indian dulcimer), and Raja Samyana (guitar). The Universal Mutant Repertory Company was a name devised by filmmaker Ira Cohen, to describe the people appearing in his film Invasion of Thunderbolt Pagoda. All of the musicians did an improvised soundtrack to that film at St. Marks Church in New York. A 39-minute tape of the performance, used as the title track, formed the core of the Angus MacLise retrospective CD collection The Invasion of Thunderbolt Pagoda. On this piece, the group played drone-trance music propelled by MacLises charged hand drumming, given extra psychedelic coating by the employment of four microphones, each run through an echo chamber. Loren Standlee recalled in The Wire magazine that the musicians would play together for as long as eleven hours straight..

An original copy would cost you a small fortune (raising over 4 digits!), but here’s at last an accurate vinyl reissue that comes complete with liner notes plus an amazing poster of one of Loren Standlee’s psychedelic collages plus an extra LP with previously unreleased studio material. Limited to 500 copies only..

For fans of Gong, Angus Maclise, La Monte Young, Tony Conrad, Amm (Cardew, Prevost)..." -Wah Wah.

Title: Bad, Bad World (Ravers Going Underground)
Format: LP
Label: Wah Wah
Country: Spain
Price: $29.00
"Wah Wah proudly unearths another lost gem from the past, this time by studio-exploitation German band The Ravers, a.k.a The Tonics. Under the production of Herbert Hildebrandt (ex-member of The Rattles, credited on some internet blogs to be some kind of German Kim Fowley), members of The Rattles/Wonderland (Achim Reichel) and The German Bonds produced a series of studio albums as cash-in operations, among them some very known works like Hell Preachers Inc. or Bokaj Retsiem. Bad, Bad World is one of those amazing releases. Having in mind the hardest beat/psych rock sounds of the era (the LP was originally released in 1969) and the rhythms that move a dancefloor, they produced this superb collection of groovy Hammond/fuzz/wah-wah driven freak rockers. More than one song here should be on any genre DJs bag, the most direct one being What You Can Do For Your Country, but with the whole LP packed with cool songs moving from the Kinks inspired Weve Got Too Much to early Deep Purple Hammond versus lead guitar duels." - Wah Wah.

Title: Samtvogel
Format: LP
Label: Wah Wah
Country: Spain
Price: $29.00
"There are records that come from the soul. No matter how primitive may be the recording techniques the musician has access to, the soul gets its way to the heart and mind of the listener. Samtvogel is one of those records. Günter Schickert recorded that amazing piece of human greatness in 1974, using the media he had at the time, putting his brain at work to find the best way of taping everything he had to say. When I was recording Samtvogel in 1974 I had only 2 Taperecorders. I played one track and while listening I added the second one. And so on. Four times. When I mixed all together I borrowed a 3rd taperecorder. And still added the last track to the master. I had a small mixer with 2 stereo and 1 mono but it was possible to pan tracks. No equalization. It all came out of my still living G2000 Dynacord guitar amplifier, of course valve, with no master, even the voice recorded through it. If I made a mistake in 1 track I had to repeat it from the beginning. And if while mixing I was not fast enough in changing the tape I had to start again. So it took me more than 3 months to get ready. Thanks to these three months of work, between June and September of 1974, Samtvogel was privately issued that same year. It would later be issued on the Brain label, with a small change in the artwork -- titles added to the front cover, which werent on the original private pressing. Brain also reissued it on the labels Rock On Brain LP series, this time with a completely different sleeve. The album contained two tracks on side one and just one on side two, and its sound has often been compared to the most explorative works of Syd Barret -- however it must be pointed out that Schickert did not need any mind spreading substances to allow his sounds to float out of his mind & soul, they just came out in the most natural way. It will also appeal to fans of the echoed atmospheric guitar work of other Krautrock innovators such as Ash Ra Temple, Manuel Götsching or A.R. & The Machines, and some may find on the vocal passages certain resemblances to Damo Suzuki on Cans Tago Mago era. The Wah Wah reissue is limited to 500 vinyl LP copies only, housed in a quality sleeve that reproduces that of the original 1974 private pressing and featuring a 4 page insert with liners and photos, sound remastered at Eastside mastering Berlin.

“Jay Alansky, a.k.a. Patrick Arondel, was one half of the duet who brought us that amazing Beautiful Losers Nobody Knows The Heaven album in 1974, among many other works - he has been active in the music world for the last four decades producing various albums through the years under many different aliases. But our matter today is a faithful reissue of his earliest works. Season, done with band mates Christophe Jacq, François Dorembus and Michel Michalakakos was originally issued on Arondels fathers own label Monde Melody and sold in small quantities, mostly around their own high school classmates at the Lycée Voltaire, which according to Jays own words in the liner notes to The Beautiful Losers CD reissue on Lion Productions / Martyrs Of Pop, was "known for its post-68 turmoil".
And certainly, the counter-culture elements of the late sixties, early seventies melt in a stunning folk-prog rarity from the French underground that has remained a well kept secret through the years! The average age of the musicians was 16 years old! And the album was recorded in just nine hours using studio time offered by Jays father.
We have included the two songs of the rare Arondel / Dorembus / Jacq / Michalakakos Hello Life / Inside The Sacred Book 7" as bonus to round the reissue!
Reissued under license from Jay Alansky with the cooperation of Christopher Jacq, François Dorembus and Michel Mikalakakos in a 500 copies limited edition that respects the original artwork, comes with remastered sound, bonus tracks and includes an insert with liner notes by Jean-Emmanuel Deluxe.” - Wah Wah.

Title: Synthetik 1
Format: LP
Label: Wah Wah
Country: Spain
Price: $32.00
"These were brothers Wolf & Eckhart Seesselberg. They pioneered the modular synth experiments in 1970s Germany just as their peers Beaver & Krause, Tontos Expanding Head Band or The Silver Apples did in the USA. Their performances often took place in art galleries or Modern Art museums, where besides their sounds they also offered seminars to instruct the public into the art of synthesizer sounds.
Wolf Seesselberg became an electronic music enthusiast through his work at the Hamburg Schauspielhaus and under the influence of Swedish composer Karl-Birger Blomdahl and his electronic tone generator. His brother Eckhart devoted all his passion into building his own synthesizer, a process that lasted over ten years!
The good news is that they did record their performances, and a selection of those tapes recorded between 1971 and 1973 formed their 1973 LP "Synthetik 1", which sees its first vinyl reissue ever now on Wah Wah Records. Containing a way out sound, often ignoring the principles of standard rhythm and melody in favour of adventurous experimentation with the endless possibilities of the sythesizer, its one of the most underrated kraut albums that nonetheless deserves to be up there with the early works of Cluster / Kluster or Conrad Schnitzler.
The Wah Wah reissue corrects the original printing by offering it on silver board (like that of the first Silver Apples LP, or our recent reissue of Spacecraft - as it was originally conceived but not released probably due to budget limitations), features reproductions of original postcards to promote Seesselberg performance in kunst galleries and, of course, includes an insert with liner notes plus lots of previously unseen photographies by the duo at work.

Format: Double LP & 7"
Label: Wah Wah
Country: Spain
Price: $37.00
"After the successful reissues of the two Mormos albums on Wah Wah, we proudly present a fantastic double LP + bonus 7" EP with the works of Jim Cuomos pre-Mormos band Spoils Of War. Jim had already served with instro-rockers The Cool Notes in Texas, along with future Big Brother & The Holding Co. founder and guitarist Sam Houston Andrew III when he moved to the University of Illinois to obtain his Master Degree in Music. It was in Illinois where The Spoils Of War were born in 1968, named after a musical instrument invented by Harry Partch - its name coming from the fact it had actually been built from spent artillery shells. Alongside Jim, other members included Al Ierardi on guitar, Roger Francisco on bass, Frank Garvey on drums and James Stround on "live sound manipulation." Annie Hat would soon join on vocals, and last gigs were played with Charlie Braugham on drums.
The S.O.W. sound was an intelligent mixture of late sixties acid psych with electronic experimentation -in a similar way to what Joe Byrd was producing with The United States Of America or Cork Marcheski would explore with 50 Foot Hose- plus theres some very imaginative songs here that could put the band in the same league Frank Zappa & The Mothers Of Invention were playing. Exciting computer generated sounds mix into a cool psychedelic rock background. It is one of the early pioneering experiments of electronic music and drones on a rock band, made at a time when programming computer sounds was really an adventure, since electronic music was still a burgeoning phenomenon. The box that had been opened by the likes of Karlheinz Stockhausen, Pierre Boulez, Luciano Berio a.o. left a lot of things for Cuomo and his peers to explore - and they were not afraid of doing so!
Back in the day the Spoils Of War had little chances to publish their recordings. Only two small 33RPM 7" EPs were released, showcasing their talent and adventurous love for experimentation
Here are -collected in a gorgeous 2LP set compiled with the great cooperation of Jim Cuomo himself- their studio works, including previously unreleased recordings, some later work by Cuomo and Co. plus a bonus 7" reproduction of the first Spoils Of War original self-produced EP from 1969.
Reissued in a 500 copies limited edition double LP housed in a gatefold gimmick sleeve with inner pop-up, fratures a bonus 7" EP, a Spoils Of War sticker, comes with remastered sound and includes an insert with liner notes courtsey of Jim Cuomo himself and Klemen Breznikar, plus full colour photos." - Wah Wah.

Title: Asfixia Al Carrer València
Format: LP
Label: Wah Wah
Country: Spain
Price: $35.00
“We are proud to present for the first time ever the lost 1976 / 1977 recordings by this legendary band from Barcelona. Suck Electrònic Enciclopèdic were born in 1975, in the last days of Francos dictature, when Spain was awaking again to democracy and everything was possible. Even with the menace of an army too friendly to the old regime a fresh new breeze was spreading the change, and S.E.E. were an important part of its musical underground movement and the ones who brought influences from their kraut cosmische heroes Klaus Schulze or Tangerine Dream to it. The constant line-up changes (over 30 musiccians have been members of S.E.E. at one time or another, with some of them moving to other important projects of the era - like Neuronium, for instance) made it difficult for them to produce a consistent recorded work. Actually they only released one LP and it was already in the 1980s, but the recordings contained on Asfixia al carrer València where done in their early days, when they were at the peak of their creativity in 1976 / 1977. At that time they had a unique sound that no one else shared since they were building their own synthesizers and they were the only Spanish band to feature four keyboardists, and also one of the few to tour with bands such as Embryo, Etron Fou Leloublan, Potemkine or Henry Cow. They were part of the Rock In Opposition (RIO) collective along with Stormy Six, Univers Zero, Samla Mammas Manna, Art Zoyd, Art Bears, and other experimental progressive avant-garde outfits.
The Wah Wah LP is a selection of tracks from more than three hours of material that was recorded but never released. Plans for LPs produced by Kevin Ayers and Robert Wyatt were made, as others to record in France - first in Avignons Free Son Studios under production from Daevid Allen and David Vorhaus with the collaboration of Shakti Yoni, and then in Tolouses Tangara Studio with Jean Pierre Grasset from Verto - but they never materialised.
A phenomenal document of the electronic psychedelic sound that Suck Electronic Enciclopèdic were exploring in their early days, including plenty of photos and memorabilia to transport the listener to their world of science ficcion imagery, psychedelia and progressive experimentation that was to supply a lot of influences to many bands to come in the Barcelona scene.
Previously unreleased, recorded between 1976 and 1977, the Wah Wah issue will come housed in a quality glossy laminated gatefold sleeve printed on silver cardboard, remastered sound by Bob Drake (of Henry Cow fame), and featuring a 20 page booklet with photos and liner notes and a comic strip.

Having served in several NZ 1960s bands like The Challenge, The Blues Revival or The Jamestown Union, members Paul Woolright (bass guitar, vocals), Eddie Hansen (lead guitar, vocals), Trevor Tombleson (lead vocals, percussion) and Ricky Ball (drums and percussion) got together as Ticket to perform an explosive electric mixture of bluesy psychedelic sounds under the influence of Hendrix, Cream, Traffic or Sly & The Family Stone, plus adding their very own touch and some funky rhythms in the same vein Atomic Rooster did in the era. Awake was the first of their two LPs, and it collected several songs that had been released as 45s during 1971, plus some extra material recorded specifically for the LP in 1972.
Eddie Hansen would relocate to Australia teaming up with another music legend, Harvey Mann. Ricky Ball became the back-beat of Hello Sailor. Paul Woolright would become part of the Pink Flamingos and Hello Sailor. Trevor Tombleson changed his name to Trevor Richards, went to England and played in the Keith Hartley Band.

Title: Fraction Sur Le Temps
Format: LP + DVD

Price: $24.00
“Urban Sax was created in 1973. Gilbert Artman, the mastermind behind Lard Free -who has also participated in dozens of recordings by other artists of the French experimental scene that included Delired Chameleon Family, Clear Light, Komintern, etc.- developed an interest in the relation between space and sound. He organised a first experiment that took place in the town of Menton, in the South of France. Artman strategically placed 18 saxophonists, and their sound reverberated through all the village. As time went by the band increased and currently their performances count with up to 34 saxophonists, 1 bass player, 3 percussionists, 2 dancers and 8 vocalists, with a line up that varies depending on each particular project. You can find saxophonists playing over rooftops, or climbing down buildings or arriving in helicopters. It is a fascinating experience that can be hardly translated to vinyl, but through the years they have recorded some of their music and here we are proud to offer vinyl reissues of those works, including one previously released on vinyl format!
Urban Saxs music is constructed over the concept of ""continuous sound", around which build and develop poly-rhythmic loops, modulated and nested in a partition and a principle of "distant sound" allowing to question the listening audience. It is about linking audio and visual performances. The music is semi repetitive, with evolving pieces of different colors. Entire saxophone family is represented: sopranos, altos, tenors and bass baritones..." (Wikipedia).
"This is some amazing shit right hyah, folks. Imagine something like, say, a concert band playing outtakes from Magmas "Theusz Hamtaahk" trilogy. Youd possibly arrive at this." (...) "Everything starts with this massive (and I mean it...were basically talking about something the size of an orchestra here) wash of sound, like something dropped wholesale out of the trippier parts of Ligetis material in the "2001" soundtrack. Then we get swept into the primal repetition of a simple motif...very Magma-like, save for the obvious difference in forces. As the proceedings go on, it gets more complex; another wash, and then into another primal minimalist cycling with strange, otherworldly drones and choral voices in the background, chuffing percussion...and then a drift off into Ligeti-land again, with chanting vocals following, and huge gusts of wind from the sax players breathing thru their horns as some sort of Saturnian Sun Ra lullabye starts to course through the group. And thats just the first half. This is some potent stuff. Its very much ritual music, as one would expect with it being composed for Urban Saxs ritualistic performances. And its quite trippy, especially for something largely acoustic (although there are four presumably electric guitars in the forces) with little electronic tinkerage to enhance the strangeness." (...) "There are some other recordings in Urban Saxs catalog, but this is perhaps the most amazing, most trippy of them all." Extracts from a review by Lugia from Julian Copes Head Heritage website

Urban Saxs debut LP was issued in 1977 on Cézanne / Cobra.

16 saxophone players gathered to record the 1st Urban Sax LP, after several years of touring festivals and outdoor venues. They were perhaps reluctant to actually record their music events, hence reducing the spatial effects of musicians playing around and above the audience. I assume Gilbert Artman had to make compromizes to re-create the Urban Sax magic in studio, using studio trickeries and sound effects. For example, the extremely low rumbles on track #1 sound like slowed down, processed saxophone recordings. The music is not only live performance, then, but partly composed in the studio. Vocals starting 14:00 on side one add the pseudo-primitive, typical Urban Sax mood. The music gets uncompromizingly repetitive on side two, where a 5 notes loop on soprano saxophone (starting 3:45) is played endlessly to mesmerizing effects, on a background of sustained low notes by the 8 tenor players. The effect is hypnotic, and these enchanting sounds could go on for ever. This is where Urban Sax gets closer to LaMonte Young, and have been compared to Rhys Chatham or Glen Branca on saxophones.

"Probably the rarest and most sought after LP in the Spanish collectors market, the first album by Gloria Van Aerssen & Carmen Santonja is at last reissued on CD as it deserves. On the twelve songs they wrote for their debut album, originally released on ÿpalo in 1971, Vainica Doble blended folk, soft rock, pop and a dose of psychedelia to describe a magical world of their own with splendid Spanish lyrics and great arrangements that bring you echoes of the Beatles, the British Psychedelic Trip or The Incredible String Band, without ever loosing their incredibly personal character that sounds so unique to todays ears as it did to those of 1971. Its fantastic, colourful pop cover was designed by Ivan Zulueta, artist and film director (he was the mastermind behind the cult movies 1, 2, 3... Al escondite inglés! and Arrebato), and is reproduced here in all its glory, housed in a laminated slipcase featuring praise texts by some of their biggest fans such as Andy Votel (Finderskeepers/B-Music), Luis Calvo (Elefant Records), Ibon Errazkin, Ferran Llauradó (Rockdelux) and Ramon Vendrell (El Periódico de Catalunya).

You wont get this through rapidshare! The twelve songs of the original 1971 LP are here augmented with 8 bonus tracks, six of them taken from non-LP Vainica Doble singles (including both sides of their mega rare first 45 from 1970 La Bruja/Un Metro Cuadrado) plus two songs from the obscure single by Tickets, their backing band at the time, who recorded Vainicas penned El Rigor De Las Desdichas, with Someone Like Me, a killer psychedelic fuzz-pop stomper, as its flipside.

“Mexican rock had a strong renaissance in the eighties, when most bands, majorly coming from the prog scene, turned to Spanish language again. One of the big acts from that era was Jorge Reyes led Chac Mool. Chac Mool counted on its ranks with Carlos Alvarado, who was an accomplished musician on its own and who would record one of the most interesting electronic prog albums of the era, on which Reyes also collaborated. Originally released on mexican private label Momia in 1980.
"Carlos Alvarados Via Lactea (Milky Way) is now reissued on vinyl 35 years later. Eurock was especially interested in electronic Cosmic Music exploring both the inner and outer spaces of sound and consciousness. Of all the great music I had heard from Germany’s Klaus Schulze to Tangerine Dream & Spain’s own Neuronium, the album by Carlos stood apart from the rest.
In a sense, it combines the best of worlds, celestial sonic exploration and deeply emotional spiritual listening. A concept album, the track titles convey the musical journey Carlos undertaking - The Structure of the Universe, Garden of the Divine Presence, Into the Light, Man in Eternity, Meditation Post Atomic & The Lark and the Virgin. He employs a vast array of classic electronic instruments - ARP, Korg, Yamaha, synthesizers, Crumar Orchestrator, Mellotron, Piano, Flute & Tapes. The album also features notable guest musicians such as Jorge Reyes and Arturo Meza.
The music you encounter upon listening is not easy to describe. Simply listen, close your eyes and imagine yourself in a majestic Holy Shrine. The sound of the earth’s heartbeat is slowly pulsating in different rhythms; solar winds from out of the sky are alternately wafting then gusting through the open spaces. In accompaniment, elemental sounds of nature fill the air, comingling with melodies from the cosmic spheres and the warm tones of exotic analogue electronica. All of these elements ultimately alchemize into an immaculate creation, a galactic symphony of Birth, Life, Death & Eternity.
“The Wah Wah reissue, made under license from and with the help of Carlos Alvarado himself, comes with remastered sound and will include one bonus track not on the original LP. Like the original, it will be housed on a flapped envelope style cover, this time in luxury silk screened metallic copper cardboard. Features a colour insert with photos and notes, plus a bonus Momia sticker based on the one given on the original release. Limited edition, only 500 copies pressed!” - Wah Wah.
"Via Lactea is a masterpiece, fusing the technological magic of early electronic tone colors with the spirits of the ancient ones beautifully. Since 1980, Carlos has continued making music as well as running his own label Momia Records. To date the label has released 12 albums by various groups, as well as projects documenting his various other diverse musical incarnations. Carlos’ latest release in 2013, entitled La Musica de los 7 Chakras, offers yet another transcendent musical listening experience." - Archie Patterson, Eurock.

Artist: VLASMAN, TON
Title: White Room With Disintegrating Walls
Format: LP
Label: Wah Wah
Country: Spain
Price: $28.00
"Ton Vlasman recorded this amazing piece of acid Euro folk back in 1970, making it sound like an outer space freaked out Bob Dylan with the help of Frans Schoonen (organ, flute and harmonica) and Leo van Vugt (chincha tumba and tambourine). The seven original compositions are stunning, drug inspired psychedelic pieces of acid folk that mix Dylan with Indian ragas and even add some Pink Floyd overtones, yet from an acoustic rather than electric point of view. And the album contains also a very cool version of The Velvet Undergrounds Pale Blue Eyes. If you ever wondered how Dylan would have sounded covering The V.U., heres a close example! The album, originally released on the small Flame label from Amsterdam, sold poorly back in the seventies -- thus becoming a collectors piece when it was rediscovered in the eighties. Since then it has been gathering new fans that pay small fortunes for a copy, no reissue has been available until now that Wah Wah offers 500 copies in a lavish edition that will probably sell out soon, so grab your copy before its too late! The beautiful cover art and full color poster insert with the lyrics are the work of Leendert Le Duc, and both are here faithfully reproduced as they deserve. The Wah Wah reissue also features an extra insert with a text by reputed Dutch collector Jean Jöbses and a couple of rare unseen period photos courtesy of the Frans Schoonen and Leo van Vugt archives. The album has been carefully remastered by sound wizard Denis Blackham @ Skye Mastering, making these songs sound like never before. Remember, 500 copies only -- dont miss it!" -Wah Wah

Artist: XHOL
Title: Motherfuckers GmbH & Co. Kg
Format: LP
Label: Wah Wah
Country: Spain
Price: $27.00
"The mysteriously named Xhol had already some years of experience on their back when Krautrock made its first impact. Having its roots in the late 60s rock & soul outfit Soul Caravan they eventually renamed themselves Xhol Caravan and released the crucial Electrip album on Hansa, one of the first efforts in bridging psychedelic, jazz and psychedelic styles in a really original way. Shortening their name to Xhol, they signed to the hip Ohr label where they released the live album Hau-Rauk and the mysterious archival Motherfuckers GmbH & Co Kg. Conceived as a varied collage of archive pieces, sound snippets and free extended jams, the album hints at the madness of Faust but retaining that freaky Xhol attitude. From the archetypical Radio, just some dial knob turning with takes us from the Soul Caravan days, to the cosmically tripped-out Orgelsolo and the chirps and flute exotism of Grille, this album shows Xhols more experimental side without forgetting their powerful fusion as hints of jazz, brass rock, soul and other grooves collide on the extended 13-minute Love Potion 25. An enduring testament to the talents of a band which went unrecognized too many years and which was one of the best and more inventive of the first wave of kraut rock bands. Strictly limited to 500 copies - single cover - upgraded with notes and photos courtesy of our friends at Garden Of Delights. Sealed copies w/ info sticker." - Wah Wah

Artist: SCREAMING ABDABS/CITY RAM WADDY, THE
Title: The Screaming Abdabs/City Ram Waddy
Format: LP
Label: Wallaby Beat
Country: Australia
Price: $19.00
"Unknown, barely-documented first-wave Sydney punk rock, delivered with speed, energy and a uniquely Australian identity. The Screaming Abdabs (1978) tear through 8 previously unreleased songs of rough and ready female-fronted punk akin to a devolved Suicide Squad or the Bags or at their most sloppy, with tips of the hat to obscure 60s punk, AC/DC, and a conceptual debt to the rhythm section of The Glitter Band. Richard City Ram Waddy was the Abdabs drummer, whose two very raw/very rare 1979 solo records are compiled and made widely available here for the first time. The 6 songs range from some of the most primitive and lo-fi ever released in Australia, to sparse, clean minimalism channeling Suicide and PiL, but always infused with Waddys idiosyncratic worldview. Comes with huge newsprint poster insert with lengthy interviews, photos and press clippings." - Wallaby Beat.

The definition of a noise band, not some hipster flagrinos playing with laptops or pretentious concept artistes calling themselves noise. This is an actual guitar/bass/drum band making fucking noise. Its as if theyre learning how to play their instruments while you listen. And theyve apparently still got a ways to go. Ridiculous really, but give me this as a concept over any of that art-school crap. And I shouldnt really say this is a thought out concept, it just seems to be some young kids fucking up. Is this an enjoyable listen? Barely. Viscerally. Its so disjointed you cant even tell whats happening most of the time, vocals sound like theyre being relayed through a walkie talkie, its like a free-rock project gone to hell." -RK (Terminal Boredom).

Title: True Tears
Format: LP
Label: War Extension
Country: Italy
Price: $26.00
“A quintessentially sinister masterpiece reissued for the first time in an edition limited to 365 copies. A mysterious 1982 cassette masterpiece by Amos & Crew from the Its War Boys catalogue remastered from the original tapes by Amos himself. Sailored, Dutchwifed, and highly-refinedly laid-out by Studio Shitless. Art by Err o. Large four-page full-color insert with an essay by Ed Baxter and a text translated by Derek Bentley from the original Japanese (1982). "Recorded in Tokyo, Japan on Mr Shiotas old four track cassette in Mr Kitamuras kitchen in sporadic three day binge," according to the original insert. Recorded by Amos while on tour with The Work in Japan. Not on the Nurse With Wound list! Existing exactly mid-way between the dropping of the atomic bomb and the time a moment ago when you opened this insensibly incendiary package, the throwaway aesthetic of True Tears now glows like a malevolent object in an ever-expanding universe. Its an emetic emissary from the senseless empire of the incredible shrinking man, an attack of a fifty-foot pylon into which The Three Stooges recklessly bang nails in the hope of a hereafter. Its above all an invocation of a truly plastic world. Nails are forced into each others heads. Heels clatter on new vinyl steps, the apartment rents out at only slightly more than average, and this is a good neighborhood. We watch the traffic as if alert to the nuances of a symphony, the choreography at midnight might as well be some modernist masterpiece, and the descent of the planes in the darkness, tubes of incandescent cells, strikes terror into all the denizens of the deep. So when I say plastic, Douglas, I mean consider the landmarks that emerge from the fog in the landscape of the last two centuries. Ruin. Cot. Window. Corpse. Airplane. Aerial Photograph. Fossil. Groove. Pine grove. Hoover. Hoe. And so on. And then consider too the tools that allow for the forensic examination of all that matters in the last 100 years or so, the age of relativity that has thrown up parallel universes, murder mysteries, musique concrète, detail, childhood, The Other, and a dismissal even by savants of consensus reality.” - War Extension.

Track listing: Worship Worship USA; Omnicode; Atom making a bomb; Fascist tea party; Dave got a job in the garage; Postcard from Space; Saw a great disc land; Ive got US dollars. There are more than half a million pieces of space junk floating above the earth, and of all of them, theres only one or two that Id rescue for the benefit of the human race. You know, when you think of all those dreadful Time Capsules and other vainglorious and redundant trivia - if you are someone of a discerning mind, one eye on the eternal fastnesses of our mighty Galaxy (only a suburb really, which is surely what makes David Bowies Space Oddity so very effecting for those of us born in the petit bourgeois utopia of the post-war world), the other on the profoundly mysterious internal life of the individual, the essentially irrelevant nonentity which our so-called culture has puffed up and reshaped with the vision of an expert sculptor into the soi-disant Self -- well then, if you are of such a mind, well then I say its my firmly held belief (one which I will carry to my grave, which I hope may be out there in Space, with Bowie and Meeks masterpieces alternating with a selection of out takes from the television series Lost In Space starring the immortal Jonathan Harris -- Spare me the compliments, Major!) that the only object really worth a candle among the essentially infinite objects floating in the upper atmosphere is that recording made by Narki Brillans which, if everyone in the chain does what they said theyll do and if my predictions for our future are correct, the reader of this transcript will soon hold in their hands. Four color sleeve with original primitive-futuristic-cosmic collages by Studio Shitless. Printed inner sleeve featuring an essay by Ed Baxter and a 1982 low-orbit interview by Narki Brillans from Teen Arts magazine. Label based on a original idea by Clive Graham.

The 2 equally classic albums that would follow this (II & Zuckerzeit) have pretty much always been available, but 71 has mostly languished (although it was reissued at times by Sky). Reissued here w/ original cover art (not the inferior Sky art), nice booklet of photos and new liner notes, no unnecessary bonus junk. Well done. "On the outer edge of German space rock, Cluster 71 stands as a testament to minimalist cosmische music. The three untitled tracks composed and performed by Moebius and Roedelius are exploratory, ever-changing pieces with focuses on guitar distortion and synthesizer wails, though each goes far beyond. This album deserves the many accolades its been given, and holds up as an early landmark in the history of beatless ambience."

The sound quality and playing are both a grimy, distorted mess, which suits the band just fine. Always alternating between endearing and abrasive, Flipper left no room for the middle ground of like. The album title is a shot at John Lydon and his alleged plagiarism of Flippers artwork for his own PIL and it proves that Flipper was never opposed to alienating its audience, no matter how sanctified.

"Originally planned to be released on New Alliance (NAR 009) in 1982, but never released, PEER GROUPs five-song debut now sees the light of day courtesy of San Pedro, Californias Water Under The Bridge. "GINO PUSZTAL didnt have a band. He had a guitar strung upside down and a notebook full of half-finished angry and odd songs. He talked to GARY JACOBELLY about jamming. Gary brought in LINA SEDILLO on bass and Gino brought MIKE HURLEY in on drums. Together they formed Peer Group, a band composed of most of the remaining people in the small ovarian scene that hung out with the local South Bay bands from New Alliance that wanted to play but didnt yet have a band. As is the case with most bands choosing a name, they became Peer Group since it was the only name they didnt all immediately hate. They played together for one raw and dislocated year until there was a falling out with Gino. Ultimately it ended when the band fixed it so he would fire them all at once. The trio recruited JIMMY THE OTTER SLAYDEN on vocals. Jimmy was a pretty funny galoot. He was a surfer and a heck of a nice guy, and was a lot of fun at rehearsals. The band rehearsed and did a few gigs with Jimmy. Eventually, one day he didnt come to rehearsal. He got ahold of the band a couple of weeks later, but by then they were already trying it as a trio. During this time, late in winter 1981, the engineer at their sometime rehearsal space taped them for a demo. Most songs were recorded in one take in a couple of hours, thus explaining their charming, raw quality. Jimmy wrote Iconoclast Youth. Eating Out was Mike Hurleys contribution. Lina and Gary wrote the goofy little half bad French howl of despair Lon Chaney, and Gary wrote the twin head-scratchers Bromide and Box of Words." First pressing of 330 copies.

Title: The Great One Is Dead
Format: Double LP
Label: Water Under The Bridge
Country: USA
Price: $29.00
Gatefold sleeve. "Its hard to believe that sixteen years have passed since this discs release. Its also hard to believe that so little ink, physical or digital, has been spilled to assess its qualities -- of which there are tons. To start with the obvious: there can be no Saccharine Trust without the dark insights of Jack Brewers lyrics and their nervous, halting delivery. The Great One Is Dead is filled to the brim with both. Brewers writing often seems to focus on the pain of real world relationships, real world failings, and street level real world life in general. His lyrics have always been far from Utopian in scope. It is within their poetic treatment that these stark realities are often given a kind of grace. Listen to Water on the Dance Floor or The Sadness of Apollo or Untitled No. 2 (I Gave Another Dimension the Slip) for prime examples of his lyrical prowess in these matters. Disaster Amnesiac has often been enthralled by Brewers lyrical pictures of urban California life. The way old fishermen are described in Birthing the Ancestors, and the ubiquitous liquor store of Nerudas Wave, and the tweaker friend of Reggies Plateau. These, among others, have often reminded me of similar scenes in my haunts within the Golden State. Praise must also be given to Brewer for his unique, expressive and highly personal vocal style. When you hear Jack Brewer, you know its Jack Brewer. Score one for individuality in the face of boring (industry) standards! On The Great One, Brewer uses varied mic and recording effects to alter the sound of his vocals to great effect, too. Speaking of sound, one would be pressed to find as creative a guitar player as Jacks long-time cohort in Saccharine Trust, Joe Baiza. That is not to say that Baizas technical prowess is lacking -- it is not. Joes guitar playing has been in continuous development for thirty-plus years now, as anyone who has followed Saccharine Trust and Universal Congress Of can attest to. From the early, skewed punk rock chord sounds of early S.T. to his later jazz-inflected capital L lead playing of both bands, Baiza has grown as a writer and player, all the while retaining the rawness and edge (hey, its the blues, once again!) so necessary for effective, impacting, physical oomph that makes for great rock guitar. Joe adds many purely noise/sound effects to his more linear guitar parts on The Great One. These industrial (in the machine/scrap metal sense, not in the NIN/Skinny Puppy spooky dance sense), paired with his dexterous runs, lead and color the tunes. His guitar tone is fuzzy and echo-y, adding to the raw, claustrophobic feel of the overall sound of the disc. Great, disturbing cover illustration from Joe, to boot." - Water Under The Bridge.

Recorded onto 2" tape by Jason Powers (Grails, Moon Duo etc.) at the venerable Type Foundry Recording Studio, this album is a document of the first five completed compositions by the six piece. Replacing your standard drum set with an early 70s 30" marching drum, which proves to be a proper centerpiece for the guitars, lap steel and saxophone to create mesmerizing and sometimes cacophonous soundscapes. Everyone gathered around the drum and played together, with minimal overdubbing.

"THE ANDROIDS OF MU were a noisy all-girl early post-punk band that emerged from London, UK, in 1979, alongside the likes of The Slits and The Raincoats.They met up in the wild squatter-lands of west London. SUZE THE BLOOZ, CORRINA, COZMIC and BESS became immersed in the local counter-culture. They grounded themselves in psychedelic synthesizer and guitar music, playing with Planet Gong and Here & Now, and musicians from Hawkwind. When they finally got hold of a cheap synth and a noisy guitar of their own, they used them, at full volume, with fat bass and bouncing drums, to record an album in the form of their new, colourful and zazzy reflections of life, from under the long dark shadow of puppet Thatchers corporate new Britain. They gigged around, sharing bills with the likes of The Mob, Zounds and The Astronauts.

They werent much like the other local bands of the era, but that wasnt what they were going for. Instead they found their own twisted path, playing the heck out of their mix of conventional and homemade instruments and getting unintended sounds out of their rhythm machine.

Title: Chappaquiddick Bridge
Format: LP + 7"
Label: Water Wing
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Chappaquiddick Bridge, the bands first full length, was originally released on Crass Records in 1980 and featured the same lineup as Hex. And like Hex, it shared the producer/engineer team of Penny Rimbaud and John Loder. This record sees Poison Girls at their most experimental stage. The songs dig deeper into the connections between the personal and political. Starting with an uncredited version of State Control (one of the bands punkiest crowd pleasers) done in an unplugged style, and ending with the similarly stripped down Tender Lover, this album broke all the rules of what a punk album should sound like. The songs are long. There are extended sonic workouts and codas, using synths, abused studio effects, electric violin, acoustic piano as well as random electric guitar sounds and vocals. The mix has thundering drums up front that power the songs, and help create a barrage of rich sound. The lyrics speak of love, power, sexual politics, war and peace and most things in between. This is Vi at her most poetic, but with a razor sharp insight, and not holding back on using it. A truly original album. If it was removed, lost or destroyed, your original copy of Chappaquiddick Bridge came with a one-sided flexi disc containing the anthem Statement. This 2014 reissue also includes Statement as a proper one-sided 7" vinyl. Sturdy tip-on gatefold cover." - Water Wing.

Title: Hex
Format: 12"
Label: Water Wing
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"The Poison Girls were a force of nature. Spat out of the belly of the UK punk scene, the Poison Girls paired up with a band down the street called Crass. The two bands played 100 shows together in the span of three years. They bonded on a conceptual and artistic way to approach punk. The Poison Girls were fronted by Vi Subversa, who was a child in the East end of London during the 2nd World War, an evacuee during the Blitz, became part of the Soho anarchist scene of the 50s, took part in the original CND march to Aldermaston, then a counter culture drop out of the 60s, finally founding herself in the mid 70s, aged 40, with two children, living in Brighton. Vi, along with Richard Famous, Lance DBoyle and Bernhardt Rebours released Hex in 1979 on the bands own Xntrix label. It was a 12" 45rpm mini album and was released with the help of Small Wonder (Bauhaus, The Cure, Crass), a local independent record label. Hex was later reissued by Crass Records in 1981.The record was recorded at Southern Studios, produced by Penny Rimbaud, and engineered by John Loder, Hex is an extraordinary punk record which featured the groups lineup that was to last for the following 2 years. Cameo appearances included Vi Subversas offspring Pete Fender and Gem Stone of Fatal Microbes and Eve Libertine of Crass. The album lays out the bands concerns, in Vis searing lyrics, against a backdrop of deep, beautiful and sometimes scary music. Vi channels the anger and frustrations of any single mother living in what was (and still is) a mans world. From the opening salvo If I had my time again, Id like to come back as a man! to the final Reality Attack Reality Attack Reality the record bristles with a fiery passion and intensity. The lyrics explore the expectations of normality, political correctness, pressures of conformity, pain and mental illness and the horrors of war. The music is diamond hard but with a tender edge, and the whole soundscape is overlaid with found recordings of everyday life.

Title: Wheres the Pleasure
Format: LP
Label: Water Wing
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"First released in September 1982 on their own Xntrix Records label, Wheres The Pleasure was described by Johnny Waller in Sounds as The last great punk record. The record came out of a period of change for Poison Girls. A new house, a new bass player, a completely new set, and, with it, a determination to challenge the expectations of their audience. What resulted is an outstanding collection of songs. Vi Subversas lyrics seamlessly make the personal political, and the political relevant to everyday life. The music bristles with inventiveness. What we hear is a band at the top of their game, exploring different styles and enjoying themselves in the process. It is Poison Girls flexing their musical muscles, rediscovering their roots, and connecting with the true spirit of punk, which is of course, unbridled, messy and adventurous creativity. Wheres The Pleasure is a truly wonderful achievement by a truly unique band." - Water Wing.

Title: Beat It Down
Format: LP
Label: Water Wing
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"After the success of their debut EP, post-punk art rockers Y Pants performed regularly in NYC and other East Coast venues. In 1981 they toured Europe for six weeks and upon return went into the studio to record their only LP, Beat It Down, released in 1982 on Neutral Records (Sonic Youth, Glenn Branca et al). The album extends the bands signature pared down rollicking minimalism. The 10 songs are varied, using surprising and inventive instrumentation. The music is at once filled with a sense of longing and a fierce ironic rebellion. With exuberant precision they brandish their toy instruments and plaintive vocals in emotive expressions of female resistance. In dustedmagazine.com, Seth Watter wrote of the album, I love the sprightly keyboards of The Fly, the gentle lyricism of Lulu, the anger of Beat It Down that comes through in the musics shambling, atonal jangle. The songs covered a huge range of emotions with an entirely new syntax. " - Water Wing.

Title: Y Pants
Format: LP
Label: Water Wing
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"In the late 70s and early 80s everyone had very fluid art identities. One day you were a filmmaker, the next day a musician, and Y Pants was very much a part of it... The lyrics are ironic without being callous, the voices are sultry, the music is repetitive and trance-like... [with] a sense of urgency - like something being driven out. --Kiki Smith. Y PANTS were a three-woman New York band: Barbara Ess, Virginia (Verge) Piersol and Gail Vachon, all visual artists. They played in clubs, galleries and performance spaces between 1979 and 1982. They were as idiosyncratic, edgy, minimal, wry and literate as post-punk no wave got. Furthermore, the fact that these were three ferocious and formidable females was not to be overlooked. --Wolfgang Staehle, thing.net. Gail found a toy piano on the street and started jamming with Barbara on the ukulele. When they were invited to play a few weeks later at TR3 (the short-lived but influential downtown NY music club), they electrified their instruments and recruited the neophyte drummer Verge for percussion on a childrens drum set. Their first gig met with an unexpected wildly enthusiastic reception. The instrumentation was then rounded out with Barbaras bass (former bands Daily Life and The Static), an African thumb drum, and a Casio keyboard for Gail. Verges initial Mickey Mouse toy kit soon fell apart and she cobbled together a modest trap set. They gained a following and soon recorded a four song EP produced by Glenn Branca for 99 Records. They often shared the stage with label mates the Bush Tetras, ESG, Liquid Liquid, Branca and other NYC downtown bands. This release includes their four-song debut EP and two songs never before available on vinyl: Magnetic Attraction (previously released on Tellus Audio Cassette), and the mysterious Kung Fu. In a NY Times review, John Rockwell wrote"... what really makes Y Pants a success is the actual sound of the instrumentals -- raw and driving yet exotic and imaginative in terms of timbre and minimalist structure.

"The Mystic Umbrellas made their debut in 1980 on the Deleted Records tape Deleted Funtime with the ethereal, drifting keyboard composition Journey To The West. Compared then to the work of Popul Vuh and The Residents, the pieces meandering mournfulness won admirers, and an album-length release was recorded and planned, but did not come together. Now, over twenty years later, the rediscovered tapes of the lost album have been remastered and remixed for release on the Waterden label. As well as Journey to the West, the album features a suite of five pieces inspired by an eccentric 18th century Northamptonshire parson who decreed in his will that he should be buried on his feather bed in a summer-house in his garden. The story of Langton Freemans Summer-House Tomb is evoked by the gentle, wistful and also faintly eerie sounds of Mark Valentines reed-organ compositions, considerably enhanced by Mark Lancasters sympathetic production.

"We Can Elude Control presents the debut album from London-based electronic musician Roberto Crippa. Reverse brings together a body of work that draws influence from the worlds of noise, electroacoustic composition and musique concrète, forming a powerful and ritualistic study of sonic structure and material. Within the sculptural engineering of silence, space and raw electronics, Crippa employs a variety of sources ranging from wood, metal, drum skin and amplified concrete, constructing an innovative narrative exploration of sonic depth and contrast. The album reflects Crippas work as one of Londons key performers within the noise and improvised music scene, crafting a refined expansion of his full frequency live shows presented at the likes of Noise=Noise and Café OTO as well as Industria Superstudio in his native city of Milan. Reverse forms Crippas landmark statement connecting the dots between his immersive gallery-based installations and visceral performances, shedding light on one of Londons most unique underground electronic artists.

The EP exposes Mannerfelts wider sonic interests and improvised approach outside of the production work for which he is more readily known (Roll the Dice, Fever Ray, The Subliminal Kid). These four improvised, hypnotic recordings cross the spectrum from industrial rhythms and arpeggiated modular cycles into angular ritualism and Sähköesque reduction.

The project acts as a meeting point for Parkers background in sound installation and digital technology with Purgass exploration of customized hardware and analog modes of production. The EP explores the potential for dense, rigid percussive structures to operate as a framework for non-grid-based electronics, and investigates aspects of texture and tonality alongside ritualistic approaches to sound. The material reflects the energy and immersive tension of their live performances, acknowledging such influences as minimal avant-techno, abstract drone, and industrial noise." - We Can Elude Control.

Title: Bliss Abyss
Format: Double LP
Label: We Can Elude Control
Country: UK
Price: $25.00
"Following his 2014 releases as Bass Clef for PAN and Alter, London-based musician Ralph Cumbers presents Bliss Abyss, a double-LP of new material under his Some Truths alter ego. Bringing together strands of house, techno, fractured rhythm, and anthemic modular synthesis, the album demonstrates Cumbers vision as one of experimental musics most singular voices. As he adeptly distills strands of the familiar and abstract into a series of tonal and percussive collages, Cumbers effortlessly navigates the balance between stark, functional electronics and playful, psychedelic humor, molding contorted, evolving structures and tense shards of rhythm into oscillating synthetics and expansive dubbed-out comas. Bliss Abyss highlights Cumbers position as an artist embedded in the lineage of British pioneering synthesis, while filtering these technological and esoteric histories through a razor-sharp dancefloor sensibility and a defiant ear for intricate construction and dynamics. At the center of the production process for Bliss Abyss is the rhythmic vista opened up by a Eurorack modular system and a repaired Roland TR606 drum machine. Using this combination, Cumbers recorded onto 25 tapes and then repeatedly recorded over them, creating imperfect palimpsests as sound leaked through from layers of previous recordings. This sits as the percussive bedrock for an exploration of acoustic modelling, and the uncanny potential for synthesis to both mimic and depart from the real." - We Can Elude Control.

"Ultra-limited (to 100 copies) reissue of Michel Legrands 1966 cult classic original soundtrack EP, with beautifully handmade and hand-folded original cover art -- a must-have! Includes two important, previously-unreleased-on-vinyl bonus tracks. A true time-capsule of the effulgence of the 60s, Qui êtes-vous, Polly Maggoo? (1966) is an arthouse movie spoofing the fashion world and its excesses. The movie developed cult status thanks to its gyrating scenario satirizing politics, fashion, the media, and more aspects of the mid-60s French society, and its detours into fantasy sequences and animated segments. In William Kleins movie, fashion often takes on a religious connotation, which is well underlined by Legrands superb soundtrack. Michel Legrand was behind the music of The Thomas Crown Affair (1968), Summer of 42 (1971), Yentl (1983), Never Say Never Again (1983 (Sean Connerys last Bond film)), and hundreds of other soundtracks, and has recorded with Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Charles Aznavour, James Ingram, Barbra Streisand, and Sarah Vaughan, to name a few." - We Release...

Fans of electronic oddities, eerie cinematic audio-landscapes, Piero Umiliani, or Bernard Parmegiani, will rejoice at this full-length musical adventure that could very well be the soundtrack for a film in which characters from a 70s Italian horror movie visit a distant (forbidden) planet from a 50s sci-movie. Its bizarre, hypnotizing, slightly spooky, always out-of-this-world, and goddamn brilliant. Nino Nardini, also known as Georges Teperino, had a very fruitful career in library music, much like longtime collaborator Roger Roger. He composed a very large amount of works for French and British libraries which continues to be featured in numerous programs (radio, TV, films) all around the world.

Price: $16.00
"Palto Flats and We Release Whatever The Fuck We Want Records present the highly-anticipated reissue of Japanese percussionist Midori Takadas sought after and timeless ambient/minimal album Through The Looking Glass, originally released in 1983 by RCA Japan. Considered a holy grail of Japanese music by many, Through The Looking Glass is Midori Takadas first solo endeavor, a captivating four-song suite capturing her deep quests into traditional African and Asian percussive language and exploring contemplative ambient sounds with an admirably precise use of marimba. The result is alternatively ethereal and vibrant, always precise and mesmerizing, and makes for an atmospheric masterpiece and an unparalleled sonic and spiritual experience. Midori Takada is a composer, multi-percussionist, and theater artist renowned in Japanese vanguard circles. Midori has released two solo albums: Through The Looking Glass and Tree Of Life (1999) and wrote music for Tadashi Suzukis theater plays. Her hypnotic, minimalist music is based in the concept of coherence between sound and the human body. She performs solo on marimba and other percussion instruments. She debuted on the scene of Berlin Philharmonic, performing with the RIAS Symphonie-Orchester Berlin just after graduating from Tokyo University of the Arts in 1974. She continued her career with solo concerts in Japan and abroad. In the 1980s, Midori began to explore the traditional music of Asia and Africa. Her fascination resulted in joint projects with Kakraba Lobi from Ghana, Lamine Konte from Senegal, Farafina Band from Burkina Faso, and Korean musicians: zither player Chi Seong-Ja, flute player Won-Il, and saxophone player Kang Tae-Hwan. She also led Mkwaju Ensembles innovative percussion project and still performs with free-jazz band Ton-Klami with Kang Tae-Hwan and jazz pianist Masahiko Satoh. Takadas compositions have a remarkable way of affecting the imagination. Her minimalist, contemplative music is filled with the concept of infinity and reminds us of a moon voyage, falling stars, a journey into the ocean, or a walk in the garden. The trans melodies, initially simple, begin to loop and splinter, their rhythm breaking and thickening, slowly drawing the listener into another reality. This fully licensed reissue comes with extensive liner notes. CD version is the first ever available CD version; Comes with an eight-page booklet and fold-out poster." - We Release/Palto Flats.

"Who would have thought a relaxed sunny afternoon, newfound friendships and some spur-of-the-moment would have resulted in whats been described as one of the most compelling documents of both free improvisation and electronic?" -- All Music Guide. "Its the people involved in Afternoon Tea -- originally released in 2000 on German label Ritornell and now available on vinyl for the first time with a new master, bonus tracks and newly discovered live recordings -- that ensured it as more than a happy accident. The twin guitar presence of AMMs Keith Rowe and Oren Ambarchi and kindred spirits of the laptop -- Sydneys Pimmon, Viennas Christian Fennesz and Peter Rehberg -- made it a momentous day. With all the players coming together during the 2000 What Is Music? Festival, Afternoon Tea stands as a highpoint of the then-emerging intersection between Powerbook performance and guitar improvisation. All subtlety, nuance and detail, it is a revelation of restraint. Built on a steadying flow of burbling rhythm, the quintet slowly weave around each others sonics in layers to create a tonal palette immersive in its atmosphere and magnetic in its compulsion. Hindsight clearly reveals the heart of these pieces -- important to note, considering they were recorded at a time when laptop performance was an alien concept to many in experimental music, suffering controversy and backlash as well as an over-abundance of pale approaches from many who took it on as novelty as opposed to serious musical pursuit. Those involved in the Afternoon Tea session left their Australian tour inspired, citing their merry time in the country eating, drinking and hanging out at the beach as well as their performances as a direct influence on their following work. Afternoon Tea remains one of the quiet and real achievers for experimental music of the past decade. Remastered in May 2009 and packaged in deluxe Stoughton gatefold jacket with artwork designed by Stephen OMalley. Vinyl edition of the CD reissue from Black Truffle Records, includes the same bonus tracks. First time ever available on vinyl." - Weird Forest.

Price: $5.50
"Its true of Bathing Druid, as its probably true of all major proverbs, 80-syllable titles of old-fashioned royalty and a good deal of e.e. cummings later poetry: it all started with a Madlibs-derivative word game. Despite the unbelievable weight of its results, the game is surprisingly basic. It requires three players, each of whom independently chooses one word to fill in a sentence, the structure of which is always the same from round to round (What is a (noun) but an (adjective) (noun)?). When the sentence is filled in with sufficiently vague, timeless words, the game can conjure some profound questions. In fact, if you read all of the obscure, sometimes omitted footnotes to the texts of the ancient philosophers, you will find one consistent source from which knowledge has been universally drawn since the dawn of time: The Sentence Game. (Modern technology has brought about the height of the games productivity, through a widespread experiment, being conducted in zoos everywhere: for years, chimpanzees have been arbitrarily pontificating, through machines designed to offer random words at the press of a button.) As previously mentioned, it was through this game that Bathing Druid got its name (the result of the fated round was, What is the midwest but a bathing druid?). Philosophical doors swung wide open when first this question was asked, and Bathing Druid like Brigadoon descended on the Earth -- an apparition, both quick to enchant and to disappear. Luckily, those who stumbled upon the band in its brief window of being need not wait 100 years for its next appearance. This 7" record is the only known artyfact of Bathing Druid. All songs were created within one week, and recorded in one day. May the Beltane Loofah wash you clean and make you new." -Weird Forest

The albums two side-long cuts are divided into two displays of versatility with varied sound sources including amplified acoustic instruments, hand-made electronics, phonography and more. Brilliant textures and audio hallucinogenic time/space wormholes create infinite listening possibilities for this album. Few albums can create such a disorienting tunnel that it sounds as if the record has multiple albums locked within itself -- you can hear these sounds and interpret them in so many ways that only time can unlock its many possibilities. Great albums only gain significance and this is surely no exception.

"Have you ever looked into the abyss? Man, its scary! An infinite void of the blackest black where not even a gleam of light can escape its dark talons. Needless to say, its not the most popular destination, but hey, it is there. And believe me, sooner or later that day will come when you will sit on the cusp and fix your eyes on the vast nothingness that is everything. But until that hour beckons, you may as well prepare yourself by spinning Das Platinzeitalter by Maurizio Bianchi. Dark ambient barely captures what is engraved in these grooves. Loops from the history of dust, ancient as the catacombs and spectral like the last rays of hope. Theres an eerie calmness to all four sides of this LP. Timeless and inevitable as the setting sun, as if this music has always been here. Which it has. It was up to Bianchi to find it. This recording captures the never-ending decay of beauty at the point when it is realized that resistance is futile and the metamorphosis has begun. There are not many musicians who can distill this essence: early Zoviet France, Nature Unveiled-era Current 93, Lustmord and Andrew Chalk/Mirror to name a few, but Das Platinzeitalter sounds like it comes from hallowed grounds, the once sacred is now profane. It forces your head to turn toward the abyss. Its up to you to open your eyes and look. Then the next thing you know, its over. Its all over. �??Dennis Yudt.

"M.B., aka Maurizio Bianchi, has enjoyed a deserved renaissance in recent times as a new generation discovers his charred brand of industrial noise, particularly the artists formative early 80s period before he disappeared in pursuit of religion. In the ensuing years, many of these early records became prized collector objects, garnering hundreds of dollars -- if they could even be found. Bianchi has since returned to creating music and many of those pricey releases have been re-issued on vinyl except for whats widely considered to be his seminal work from that time, Symphony for a Genocide. Weird Forest is proud to rectify this situation. To the uninitiated, Symphony may sound like so much noise with its unyielding factory-of-death buzzsaw sound making Throbbing Gristles industrial music almost top-40 by comparison. But buried underneath the unrelenting martial rhythms and analog siren sounds is a great deal of musicality, including synth melodies and basic chord progressions. Bianchi uses all these elements at his disposal to create a gripping audio portrait of the grim subject matter. Re-issue is strictly limited to 500 copies and is a near-exact reproduction of the original Sterile Records release, including hand-stamped labels and inserts just like the 1981 issue." -Weird Forest

Artist: BUK BUK BIGUPS
Title: Buk Buk Bigups
Format: 12"
Label: Weird Forest
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"Weird Forest drops the debut 12" from Sacramentos newest, best-kept, filthy secret. Buk Buk Bigups was created as an avenue for Sacramento-based musician Aaron Zeff to explore the outer parameters of popular and experimental music. Influenced by industrial tones, Krautrock rhythms and disco humor, Zeff takes the forgotten sounds of 1999 pre-Brooklyn Sacramento and reinvigorates the disco-notdisco formula with some guitar freakazoid dead-pan party anthems and fried mutant bedroom funk. The A-side, Hot Mess, gives a nod to a DFA-style production through chopped high-end riddim, but with a classic vibe: Manzaneras Primitive Guitar-era axe soaring solos, Roger Troutmans blunted affected vocals, and unconscious Dirty Mind cat-calls. Endless Itch, the B-side, is a lurching oxycotin-laced slow burner not straying too far from a funkier version of Factums or a subdued Gary War, but channeling Bay Area legends Tuxedomoon. Weve already coined the default genre descriptor for your blog: plastic brown-eye soul or, if you like, valley downer funk." - Weird Forest.

Artist: EMERALDS
Title: Allegory of Allergies
Format: Double LP
Label: Weird Forest
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"About a month ago, as I watched Emeralds levitate a packed house at Brooklyns Glasslands, I couldnt help but wax a bit misty-eyed, recalling the years we all spent orbiting the basements of the upper Midwest with a cabal of like-minded fuckups. This opportunity to revisit Allegory of Allergies isnt exactly helping me regain my composure, and for that, Im profoundly grateful, insofar as time, distance and a seriously killer record can put a pretty impressive sentimental gloss on virtually anything, from spacing out and driving two hours past the gig in a thunderstorm to blasting the Gods of Tundra c120 on a half-dead portable deck while scrambling to dodge a sketchy eviction threat. Those, apparently, were the days. In its formal aspect, Allegory shares much with the recent and justly lauded What Happened, though in nearly every other sense, theyre night and day. Where the extended vignettes of What Happened share a certain crystalline expansiveness and astral sheen, Allegory offers a crumbling labyrinth thats at once humid and frigid, crammed to the gills with moss, lichen, cobwebs, brick dust, rotting boards, peeling paint, and narrow shafts of light. Its a blurry and bleary vision, in which John Elliott, Steve Hauschildt and Mark McGuire improvise on synths, guitar, voice, and tapes like three cats batting at an enormous calder mobile, a sound thoroughly native to the moldering interiors and indigenous dystopian/psychedelic culture of the American Rust Belt. Those approaching this work for the first time will have much around which to warp/wrap their heads. Emeralds are possessed of a slow-burning, Cluster-like sense of patience, an accompanying willingness to assume the appearance of burbling sideways in low gear while stealthily turning the universe on its edge, a rare mastery of perspective and scale and an ability to make audible the slipperiness of the slope between harmony and timbre. Just as crucially, they manage to be ambitious and sprawling without compromising their aura of raw immediacy and handmadeness. It is precisely this sort of fried grace that secures Emeralds place in the history of vernacular experimental music and situates Allegory of Allergies squarely in its hallowed canon of epic double LPs." -Chris Madak.

"11 tracks in just under 50 min. All completely new songs.. This album is pure naive headphone acid pop to drive to, at least thats what was going through our heads."- Ganglians Sacramentos Ganglians want an island somewhere where they can soak in the sun and prowl the canopy by night. Its not often that they do get out, but they can get down for that. Recording sometimes as one, sometimes as four its a real game to figure out where the entity comes from and where its going. First and foremost its about uncertain pleasures. Its a bit like choose your own adventure. Theres "codeine balladry"; a slightly upsetting tempo that is quickly flushed into an aural high, the next moment youre in the toy strewn abyss of the bedroom and then out to the tribal caves of the natives. The planets align and the sun beats down, palms tingling, and you are on the island theyve built, the scenery constantly shifting for a better view, of you. "If you ask them, Sacramentos Ganglians consist of "the whole of the Ganglian race" as well as "the squirrels in the walls that bounce acorns across the ceiling in the dead of night." So far, Ive resisted the urge to look too hard to find out more. What I do know is that the group, who creates all-over-the-map damaged-and-psychedelic noise-pop, is about to release an EP and LP on Woodsist. The labels already had a banner year and change via Crystal Stilts, Wavves, Blank Dogs, Vivian Girls, etc. Add this to the trophy case. Really, Ganglians sound isnt as easy to peg as some of their cohorts -- listen to three songs and youll hear three different approaches with some similar threads running through. See, for instance, "Hair"s rollicking dark surf and the more pastoral (and considerably epic) "Valiant Brave."- Brandon Stosuy /stereogum.com

Artist: GARRINCHA AND THE STOLEN ELK
Title: Void
Format: LP
Label: Weird Forest
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"With a pair of cassette releases in recent months on the venerable tape labels, Stunned Records and 905 Tapes, Garrincha & The Stolen Elk may seem like neophytes on the scene but the truth is Davy Bui and Matt Kretzmann have been making music together in one form or another since 2002. I Dont Believe You kicks off the album with chiming bells and an upbeat church hymn slowed down and matched to a barrage of processed chanting voices. The song morphs into a hypnotic guitar loop layered with ringing synths, guitar washes and ghostly vocals, all building to a cacophonous climax replete with bleating saxes, a buzz metal riff and shredded guitar. Tower of Babble begins with sounds of rainfall and something sounding like slowed-down Gregorian chants as a chiming guitar melody softly repeats, eventually giving way to a buzzing organ drone, a tribal drum beat and belted German vocals before taking a final sinister turn with an insistent snare roll propelling the song towards its grand finale. The album concludes with the side-long, three-part First Rites, Last Communion suite. Heavily comprised of processed Asian church ceremony field recordings accompanied by occasional guitar and keyboard statements, the piece eventually erupts into a maelstrom of noise blasts, wild guitar and ringing bells before settling into a series of long, drawn out tones. Mastered by Graham Lambkin (ex-Shadow Ring), this album sounds like little else in the Weird Forest catalog." -Weird Forest

Some of the tracks have a more dazed, avant-garage, almost Pink Floyd/Simply Saucer-esque guitar drone to them that wasnt quite so present on Way Their Crept and it adds a great psychedelic/Astronomy Domine feel to the wuzz of vocal tone.

Artist: HEXLOVE/FAULOUAH
Title: Free Jazz From Slavery
Format: Double LP
Label: Weird Forest
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"If one were dim enough to go about explaining the new double LP from Hexlove/Faulouah by pointing up parallels between it and the future-thinking music which has surely influenced its creator, I imagine the task wouldnt be too daunting. One may first notice that Free Jazz From Slavery is awash in the sublimely complex percussion patterns of 20th century composers like Harry Partch, Eugene Kurtz, and Iannis Xenakis. Or one might wonder if Zac Nelson, the man in the cockpit of this thing, hadnt been listening to Another Green World since he was in the womb. And certainly it wouldnt be a stretch to say that the jibing spirit of early-80s Pere Ubu experimentation is all over the more flippant efforts like Dont Say I Didnt Warm Yah and the watery blurb that opens the record, Aztec vs. Dolphin. This, though, is the wrong way to go about listening to or talking about any of Hexlove/Faulouahs work. Musical ancestors are worn proudly on Nelsons sleeve, but as eagerly as he celebrates them, he also delights in taking them, along with himself, down a peg. The snarky punning of the albums title, the faux-shamanic chanting and cooing, the deliberately murked-up and buzzing arrangements, all belie an agenda that involves not only a glad embrace of the less austere reaches of avant-gardism but a pointed critique of its elitism and intellectual posturing. Tracks like the doom-laden Lots of Wings Carry Seeds, which pulses like the metabolism of some slumbering extinct beast, display a staggering sense of grey beauty but are quickly undercut when Nelson begins to take a more blithe and self-deprecating tack. This, though, is not to the records detriment; it never falls into mere novelty or self-parody. The sheer technical brilliance, evident on every track, earns quite a big spot on Nelsons cheek to put his tongue in. The most glorious moments, though, are those in which he is able to marry these two tendencies, as on the desperate and busy Grump up the Volume, which opens the second side of the first record. And this is just the first record. All doubts that may have been lingering about Nelsons seriousness or capabilities vanish completely after even the most cursory listen to the second record. Alone, it is a startlingly focused and beautiful ambient masterwork, but it shines all the more when it is coupled with the chaos of the first record. The long, breathing pieces are tranquil and meditative, yet never naïve or on the look-out for a place in The New Age. Under every track, however, spare and delicate, lurks an anxiety that constantly threatens to swallow all delusions of well-being. Though it drones and broods, it is never without texture. Alive with the haunting organ of Exits Very Damp or the subtle xylophone flourishes of Big Happy Lotus, it manages to maintain a clean, coherent spirit without becoming sterile or devolving into massage music. The side-long closer and centerpiece of the album, Psychopomp, though, is as sparse and heavenly as music gets, but it still attains such a raw human beauty that after you hear it, the last thing you want to do is lie down for a massage. Rather, you want to run out and find the human who created it and thank him." --Steve Rodgers

Title: Hespherides
Format: LP

Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"This one has been recorded for a while now – I think we finished it around the end of 2010, after starting it early that summer – but its been worth the wait, with Weird Forests usual high standards of presentation and mastering very much in evidence. We took a slightly different appraoch for this one too – instead of our more usual “virtual collaboration” method of sending files back and forward through the e-aether, we based this LP around some pretty intense live jams at a sweaty rehearsal space in Leeds. Of course we then took them apart and rebuilt them using our more regular method, but hopefully the sense of live abandon is there underneath it all." - Neil Campbell.

"Iibiis Rooge is the high-powered collaboration of Neil Campbell (Astral Social Club, Vibracathedral Orchestra and A Band) and High Wolf (releases on Holy Mountain, Not Not Fun, and his own Winged Sun label). Their new album, Hespherides, is a welcome development in the duos trajectory, with its immersive propulsion more refined and synthesized than their 2009 self-titled debut. That earlier effort showcased the possibilities and capacities of the two artists collaborative spirit, each track exploring the individual aspects of a shared sense of sound with discernible cues from either Campbells or High Wolfs discography. In contrast, Hespherides is a meticulously sculpted document that embraces a total sound -- one that denies prominence of each contributor by melding the psychic duality of the pair. Shifting industrialized ethno-polyrhythmic structures are transformed by droning, blissed-out textural threads that seamlessly coexist and contradict one another; Through two side-long process-driven mechanical meditations, a shared space is constructed, one that satiates anyone willing to gorge on the global, post-acid house, rainbow hypnotism that is Iibiis Rooge." - Weird Forest.

"You know, I get a lot of records in the mail, and Id say that most of em are CDRs. The way technology has gone, thats only natural for independent music, and I try to give all CDRs a fair shake, but its just never as nice as getting a vinyl LP in the mail. When its on vinyl, you just know its probably going to be good, or at least carefully considered, which CDRs almost NEVER are, even when they ARE good. Now if this primitive/outsider sax/drums/electronics LP by Klondike & York had been a CDR, I wouldve still really liked it, but having it pressed onto vinyl with a cool-ass color cover, well, as Al Pacino would say, "Forget about it!" Its top-notch! Its essentially a sax and drums free jazz duo, one Chad Stockdale on sax and one Nate Beier on percussion, with a lot of heavy blowing and space-out time-keeping, but Im tempted to not call it free jazz. I mean was The Psychedelic Saxophone of Charlie Nothing free jazz? No, it was psychedelic saxophone, and so is The Holy Book. And, to help sew it up as something other, theres also some synthesizer on here. Its not credited to any one musician, the word just floats in the space right after the credits. This is pretty much what the synth does on the record too, it just sort of mysteriously appears now and then. Trippy silk-screened labels too. Actually, the whole LP, from the home-recorded vibe to the shadowy appearance to the Northern California return address, reminds me of when the first Six Organs of Admittance LP appeared and left blown minds in its wake. There may still be time to get your mind blown, but I really doubt there are any more than 500 of these floating around, so hurry up!" -Larry "Fuzz-O" Dolman, Blastitude.

Price: $26.00
"Nearly 40 years after its creation, Weird Forest is proud to release this seminal jazz album for the first time ever on vinyl. The incendiary grooves captured in this wax defy description. It is not free, funk, fusion or fire music it encompasses all of these sounds and then blasts far beyond them. Featuring the late great organist, Larry Young (Miles Davis circa Bitches Brew, Tony Williams Lifetime, etc), this album is mandatory listening for fans of Miles Davis Live Evil fusion era, Youngs own Lawrence Of Newark, Sun Ras cosmic explorations and even Japanese guitar terrorists like Keiji Haino and Masayuki Takayanagi. Beautifully packaged, Weird Forest-style, in a deluxe double-gatefold cover and remastered for vinyl by Weasel Walter, the Love Cry Want 2xLP is an essential document of a criminally unheralded group. Heres the scoop: June 1972. The times were filled with darkness and turmoil. This music, of loving, of crying, of wanting, makes a powerful statement. It is awash with the anguish of the times, yet it heralds the promise of better days to come. Love Cry Want was a legendary jazz fusion group based in Washington D.C., and led by guitarist, Nicholas. This recording took place during a series of concerts in Washington, held across from the White House in Lafayette Park, and featured the late, great jazz organist Larry Young, who had just recorded the historic Bitches Brew LP with Miles Davis and had left the Tony Williams Lifetime and guitarist John McLaughlin to combine forces with Nicholas and drummer, Joe Gallivan. This second incarnation of Love Cry Want featured the triumvirate of Nicholas, Gallivan, and Young performing some of the most important music in the history of jazz. No record company would release this music, which was ahead of its time. Nicholas, who pioneered the development of the first guitar synthesizer (in association with Electronic Music Laboratories) performs on the first prototype guitar synth along with fellow musician, Joe Gallivan, who pioneered the development of the drum synthesizer with inventor, Robert Moog. June 1972, Lafayette Park. Richard Nixon was President. There was a nasty war going on in Vietnam, good people were rioting in the streets and cities were aflame. During this series of concerts outside the White House, President Nixon ordered aide, J.R. Haldeman, to pull the plug on the concert fearing that this strange music would levitate the White House. This is that music, remastered for this first time-vinyl release by Weasel Walter. - Weird Forest. Personnel: Nicholas: prototype guitar synthesizer, ring modulator, wind, rain, thunder, lightning, water, hi-tension wires and wailing dervish Joe Gallivan: drums, steel guitar, moog synthesizer, and percussion Jimmy Molneiri: drums and percussion Larry Young: Hammond organ.

Title: This Is Folk Music
Format: LP
Label: Weird Forest
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"Raphael Lyon is the enigma known as Mudboy. From the incredibly detailed art/packaging to bizarre mp3 releases attached to scrap metal or plant matter to Freddy Krueger-inspired art installations, Lyon has always been one of the strangest cats on the scene. This unique perspective also infects his music. Whereas many of todays kosmiche-influenced artists bubble up from the noise scene (with knob-twiddling pedal pusher seemingly a prequisite to sequencing synth jammer these days), Mudboys work hints more toward the avant-garde as well as a touch of the classical. Originally released on CD in 2005, This Is Folk Music finds Lyon placing each sound with purpose and carefully sequencing the songs to create a dark, slightly twisted yet strangely beautiful soundscape. Listen to the gunshot crack that kicks the album into high gear on Solitron Wave, the seamless transition from the sparkling melody of Running into the jungle rhythms of Beirut Dance Party, even commonplace field recordings of waves and night sounds take on a different dimension in Lyons hands. This Is Folk Music may have been his first major release but already, all the trademark elements are present: the skewed aesthetic, the attention to detail and especially, the strong compositional sense. This is Mudboy. Art/layout by Raphael Lyon. Vinyl reissue specially re-sequenced by the artist. Limited edition of 500 includes 22" x 22" insert with mp3 download of the album in its original form." -Weird Forest

Title: Desert Fires
Format: LP
Label: Weird Forest
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"The solo project of Brooklyn-based guitarist and filmmaker Sarah Lipstate (Rhys Chathams Guitar Army, Glenn Brancas 100 guitar ensemble, Parts & Labor, Carla Bozulich / Evangelista, Cold Cave), follows up her Red Rainbows CD (No Fun 2009) with this compositional evolutionary step from layered, loop-based drones to more expansive formal arrangements of swells, throbs, tones and shimmer. Almost Alright explores territory charted by Fripp & Eno or synth-heavy contemporaries Emeralds. Kites Calm Desert Fires is a sandstorm of rich, percussive guitar, warm humming bass and swirling rhapsodic chimes. Toothnest (for Chris Habib) arrives at an idyllic sonic plateau of windswept fuzz and tremolo, then charges blindly with a soaring guitar solo evocative of bagpipes triumphantly marking a return from battle. Art by Sarah Lipstate. Originally released on CD by Saffron Recordings. Limited edition vinyl comes with 11"x11" insert." -Weird Forest

Title: Glacial Glow
Format: LP
Label: Weird Forest
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Sarah Lipstate is Noveller and Glacial Glow is her most assured, accomplished statement to date. Lipstate largely sheds the distortion and feedback present in much of her earlier work. Instead, she relies on instantly memorable melodies, a wider sonic palette, and excellent pacing to deliver arguably her best album. Noveller announces her intentions from the opening track, appropriately titled Entering, as the syncopated rhythm of the melody represents a new twist from her previous guitar work. This is only the hors doeuvre for the stunning Glacial Wave, which drifts along serenely until Lipstate rains down gorgeous arpeggios like icy shards from the heavens. Other pieces feature sparse arrangements anchored by pulsing throbs which evoke a subtle, creeping anxiety more menacing than the feel-good retro-horror soundtracks making the rounds these days. Throughout Glacial Glow, Lipstate exercises restraint and a fleeting melancholy feeling pervades the album. It says something about an albums quality when the closing track, Ends, is chosen as the lead-off video. Ocean sounds combine with the lovely chord progression and guitar lines to create an uplifting, yet slightly wistful feeling and a perfect bookend to the record.

A combination of mechanical grindings and digital sweeps, mortal shovings and sudden transportations into secret chambers hold the secrets of the Virgins themselves. The Virgins that control the universe. The mafia of the cosmos. Beyond the cliched metaphor of purity and straight to literally not having sex at all.

"The latest from NorCals finest, Path of Lightning is one of STARVING WEIRDOS most swell/swollen yet to date. Four flippin sides of confuse-adelia for both the farm-fresh kid to the well-heeled cad. Way noisier than the releases on Root Strata, Path of Lighting is chock full of mystery moves and dynamo hums, from the tripped-out textural flips on "Into the Flatlands" flickering in and out of foci to the almost-an-environmental-statement of "N.Y. Blues" with talk show jibber jabbing into the corrosive static as the grooves run out. The two dudes in Starving Weirdos are joined by yet another dude for two tracks and its tough to know exactly what hes adding (besides another layer of ecstasy gush). These two sides sound like the fine line that separates No Neck Blues Band from Sunburned Hand of the Man.

Title: Lagan Qord
Format: LP
Label: Weird Forest
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Perhaps the true test of an artist is taking common elements and fashioning a unique sound all their own. Elijah Forrest, as Terrors, is one artist who passes the test. A bi-coastal vagabond dropping tapes from southern California to Baltimore, Forrest has traveled many miles, seen a lot and judging from his music, not all of these experiences have been good. Terrors is relatively unprolific by underground tape culture standards, putting out a handful of well-received cassettes over the last few years. Each release is filled with simple songs built around his voice, guitar and at times, a healthy wallop of tape hiss ambiance and feedback. With these simple ingredients, Forrest injects a sense of weariness and sadness into his songs -- even the instrumentals which loop, layer and wrap back around themselves seem imbued with a touch of grey. The chords, melodies and progressions may sound familiar but in Forrests hands, a freshness and timelessness breathes within these songs. Weird Forest is excited to present Lagan Qord, a compilation of Terrors tracks culled from the last few years. Wonderfully remastered by Sean McCann, these songs have never sounded better." -Weird Forest

"Leon Dufficy is primarily known as guitarist in the hippie-jam outfit, Hush Arbors, but now he steps into his own as the driving force behind Winter Drones. Sounding like the perfect combination of fuzzed-out ambient drift, shoegaze swirl and propulsive pop sensibilities, Winter Drones have slowly gained attention in their native U.K. with a handful of obscure CD-R/cassette releases and compilation appearances. Earlier this year, the bands debut album, Blood In The Coffin, came out as a limited-edition tape on U.K. micro-label Sexbeat Records. While legions of artists are mining the ambient style, Dufficy stands out because of his ability to develop his soundscapes, infusing them with a touch of melody to impart a sense of emotion. Songs like the lead-off track, Watch Your Eyes, set the mood perfectly while Bongs Dream shows Dufficys intuitive understanding that the perfectly weighted note/chord can add tremendous emotional resonance to an atmospheric piece. But Dufficy isnt some common nu-age denizen and the album really shines when the drums come in and the band rocks out. Winnie Coopers Bones and Two Long Weeks Part 2 find Dufficy perfectly capable of crafting memorable songs that stick with the listener. The albums centerpiece, Stiff Wizard, serves as a thesis statement for the entire album. Over ten minutes, the track starts with flanged/fuzzed guitars swishing about and sounding like jet engines on a runway. As the piece builds towards take-off, a simple radar-like melody begins pinging and the song takes flight when the drums and driving guitar chords launch in -- a perfect microcosm of the whole record." -Weird Forest

New sounds emerge from the Yellow Swans camp that are more hushed, and whisper with the logic of deep space. Whereas the last record was a laser beam guided minimal transmission with dark overtones, this new release injects sonic clouds full of pink oxycontin. Guitar lines sketch out a melodic vision that stupifies with hypnotic repetition with layer upon layer of rich and dense guitar chug build into multi-orgasm songscapes that leave the loins sore and the mind spent. An exhausting journey into pleasure and single-mindedness. Elements of lush drone stretch the proceedings in vast strokes.

Title: Unraveling Designs

Label: Western Standards
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
“Whereas most other music squabbles for your attention whilst it plays, Unravelling Designs is content to remain in your subconscious mind, gently seducing you in an unhurried manner. The steady swelling of opener Recognition is a welcoming crescendo of highly atmospheric textures, seguing perfectly into the bubbling Down From The Sea, which is certainly one of the most carefully conceived and expertly executed numbers of the growing Western Standards repertoire. The monumental title track is the natural centre-piece of the album, like a single ebbing tide of hypnotic magnificence, replete with layers of gradually developing sound-effects and awash with droning ambience. As the song builds to a wonderfully understated climax, the hidden majesty is gradually revealed during an enormously satisfying conclusion. The insistent pulsing of The Needle is a pleasing contrast to the positively ghostly harmonics which sweep in and out of the mix before settling back to a simple, undulating loop. The following Terrain demonstrates some of the harshest textures present on Unravelling Designs, a veritable orchestra of horn like interjections, boldly metered above a fog of hazy distortion. Comparatively, the beautiful closing number Smokewalk is a borderline triumphant series of near musical harmonics which jangle and chime to an appropriately beatific finish. One of the more refined albums of the year but also one of the most rewarding.” - Tommy Dski, pocketjury.net.

"In spring 2009, Robert Beatty (of solo Three Legged Race and band Hair Police) Beatty travelled as a collaborating and touring member of Burning Star Core -- with whom he has collaborated and toured as a member of for a number of years as well. Written into the setlist performed every night was slot for an improvised solo by Robert, on his special electronics rig, synthesizer, space echo, question boxes, etc. Anything sound he wanted, "make it sing." So imagine similar to three hour stadium show, the moment for the bass solo or perhaps drum solo, except this is a few minutes out of a 30 or 40 minute long set. Except the stage doesnt rise up or no additional smoke blows across. So imagine if almost every Burning Star Core performance was recorded on this tour and these "Robert Beatty" solos were cut out and strung along into an work of their own ? This LP "SOLOS" realizes that concept. It is live, but it is not collage; it is a document, but it is not comprehensive to the originating context. So ten complete solos, in chronological order, on two sides of LP, about run time of 35 minutes.

Recording and performing primarily in the mid-to-late 1980s, with sporadic efforts in the early 1990s, this barely organized enclave based in rural Northern California ingests and disgorges outsider free music à la Smegma and other bent LAFMS trippers, the UKs A Band, 5 Starcle Men, Gastric Female Reflex, Id M Theft Able, and the sort of visionaries currently promoted by labels such as Chocolate Monk, Destijl, and Ultra Eczema. Members of the Brent Lewiis Ensemble later migrated to Vomit Launch, Glands of External Secretion, The Idiot, Serious Problmz, and Bananafish magazine. In comparison to the only other available recording of a complete live performance by the group (the side-long “Industrial Barbecue,” on the above-mentioned BUFMS boxset), At The North Pole, Easter Day, 1982 is starker and more minimal overall. Performing as a quintet at a university open mic night in the student union cafeteria, the group had played live only once prior (a “bongos in the dirt” affair in the parking lot of an art gallery), they had yet to amass the collection of ubiquitous tape players and answering machines that accompanied most subsequent performances and recordings.

Title: West Coast Spring 2004
Format: LP
Label: What The..?
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"For the curious and complete we present a new imprint seeking specific live experience on a vinyl format. Our first edition is from the Burning Star Core, this time caught in a duo of C. Spencer Yeh on voice and violin, and Robert Beatty (Hair Police, Eyes and Arms of Smoke, Three Legged Race) on his self-style "acoustic appraiser" and electronics, during the spring in 2004 on tour with LA language Open City. Burning Star Core timeline watches would place this same time when the collaboration LP with Comets on Fire was recorded, and when "Lets Play Wild Like Wilcats Do" was first available as limited CD-R. Two complete sets from Seattle WA and San Francisco CA, what was felt was the very best ones from previous archive cassette collection on Yehs quiet vanity imprint Dronedisco. The flavor of this time is very stripped down with attention to destiny and velocity; for fans of raw electronics, vocal action and hyper-dry violin, with some brief drone for the complete trip. Only 300 numbered copies with inserts. Be sure to control an eye and ear out for the future of WHAT THE..? records!"

"Debut wax debut from this young band, previous from Italy, now residing in Berlin Germany. Five songs on one sided-LP, announces a new presence in sound poprock one could easily describe in comparisons -- we swear at reference points experiments crossing this with that but -- and indeed the tuneful minimal tunes and noisy surfing churn chord guitars, boy-n-girl vocals, anemic fuzz, brittle and cold snap of drum machine, keyboard haze, endless sexy echo and reverb. You know the sound and you have heard and loved it before, hear it again through Cometa Fever. We hear recently the duo have added a third, and are readier than every to be, probably new songs extending the Cometa vibration. We wish them well!! An edition of 112 copies, excellent silkscreen artwork and design by artist Paul Coors, captures the electric thrill of hot and cold whips on the lonely body." - What the..?

Title: The Glue That Holds The Kids Together
Format: One Sided LP
Label: What The..?
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Vinyl debut of long-running Cincinnati Ohio/Northern Kentucky improv unit circling the center of saxophone/electronics Tim Schwallie (of The Wolverton Brothers) and doublebass/electronics Scott Hisey. Over many many many many years the core remain the same with various collaborators and members walking in and stepping or falling out, but the core remain the same, as they stepped in and fell out of modes such as free improv, free funk, free song, as evidenced in these on record. And included on record is a highly-picked sample of highlights from Gordy line-ups, including involving Clayton "Chicken" Gunnels (RIP, of the JBs, "America Eats Its Young"-adelic), Mark Perry (Heevahava), C. Spencer Yeh (Burning Star Core) and names here. "So Mark Perry discovered Clayton wandering Covington streets. Clayton was too well-dressed to be just another homeless dude as Mark put it... Mark started a dialogue which turned into sporadic jams with Clayton, then Mark decided that Gordy Horn get-togethers were the best formats for Clayton and you know the rest... Do you know karate? Tara was a singer with a very sloppy and very loud noise jam thing in the early nineties that I liked a lot--in particular I liked this pretty quiet small young girl that would transform into a screaming banshee on stage... We talked and then they moved to LA; her boyfriend oded, she moved back, and we started talking again. Scott and I were in a collaborative mood. We met up with Aimee who was willing to bring her harp around, and Gordy was a four-piece for 8 months or so around June to Dec 1999... The quartet with Spencer and Adam was really the go-to quartet for a while there (2003-2006) and I am glad we got one of those jams on the record." - Tim Schwallie, Spring 2010, Cincinnati Ohio.

Title: Object Lessons
Format: Picture Disc LP
Label: What The..?
Country: USA
Price: $24.00
"Object Lessons" and what of this ten-song collaboration between artist Lieberman and Yeh ? Perhaps the influenced musically discussed is somewhere starting between mutual love of various artistic and musical genres certainly -- sound poetry, psychedelic rock, Japanese scum noise, Japanese psychedelic rock, listy lists, but certainly embodies more the present-time sensibilities and whims of both between the two artists to combine for something perhaps neither strictly adhering to any imitation. Perhaps to this record appropriately lets step back to New York artist Justin Liebermans 2009 sculptural and multimedea work "The Correctors Custom Pre-Fab House" -- a description from the debuting gallery follows -- "The Correctors Custom Pre-Fab House is inspired by Robert Venturi and Denise Scott-Browns 1972 book, Learning From Las Vegas, which provides an in depth examination of what they call the decorated shed, a simple structure with elaborate signage. Using the urban sprawl of Las Vegas as an example, they posit this architectural style as a means to enrich the symbolic content of post-modern architecture. The Correctors Custom Pre-Fab House is a steel dwelling covered with a multitude of objects including a 1970s snowmobile, a life sized Jolly Green Giant, foam filled inflatable toys, an illuminated Fedex sign, and a 7 foot shark. Accompanying the house is a sculpture of the Corrector, a character inspired by the fictional figure, Nobusuke Tagomi, from Philip K Dicks novel, The Man in the High Castle. The novel follows Tagomi in a fictional future fifty years after Germany and Japan defeat the Allied forces in World War II. Liebermans interpretation of Taogmi is that of an avid collector of all things pop culture, whose collecting habits extend to the exterior of his home. Within the house, there is a computer equipped with a program that enables the Corrector to archive each object with an informational text about the objects history, which is then projected onto the adjacent wall of the gallery. Created in the style of a Katamari video game, the program features texts on each object taking various forms such as objective accounts, plagiarized product descriptions, aesthetic meditations, poetry, short fiction, satire, and prose. The program is available to play at www.thecorrector.org. These texts were then transformed into the record, Object Lessons, a musical collaboration between Justin Lieberman and C Spencer Yeh. The record is a spoken rendition of select object descriptions that were reworked into an ... musical format." Full-color gatefold jacket, depicting abovementioned objects piled up in a grassy field, and the empty dome waiting for occupancy, and inside special ullistrations for both ten tracks -- with fullcolor picture disc LP showing the Corrector statues head in both sketch and final form.

"We are proud and excited to present our second effort as the team What The..? Records in finest production and resurrection n of artifacts from some of the favorite artists. This time.... -- a lost long live set from California sound unit Speculum Fight (to some now known as Damion Romero), taken place back in a heavy time for sound of such density and heaviness, in one of the heaviest zones on Planet Earth -- Tyoko, Japan circa 1995 !!! These sides are cut striaght in vein from chrome cassette to cutting needle, as if drawing the very energy of analog spirit without the interference of digital approximation, and indeed it is pure anaolog these grooves you hear!!! Romero has stated this live set is in direct influenced by such dark-cloud recordings as "Milky Way" (infamous Keiji Haino live set) and perhaps ritualistic density of C.C.C.C., but we know the sound is also instead pure West Coast motor engine fog monster. Bonus slab of soundcheck included at the beginning, to set the stage for what surely will be known as a prime window into pure eyes-closed eclipsed darkness of highest mental order. Romero does not su much as "play" as he does just line up of cosmic and physical psychic energy to birth a creation of situation for top-notch psychic physical cosmos. Comes in silkscreened cover with heavy-duty resealable polyethylene bag, includes reproduction of original show flyer and numbered photograph from the trip in the eye of Romero himself.

Year of the Pig starts with gentle guitar and soothing organ before heading into darker territory with gruff male vocals offset by Castles angelic singing and a meandering bass line. Its not until a full 7-and-a-half minutes in that the track explodes into a Keith Moon-esque drum workout, which is followed by a one note Neu! trick that builds up to a thrash attack.

"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.).

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.

"Wierd Records proudly presents the debut album from Frank(just Frank) from Paris, France entitled The Brutal Wave. The Brutal Wave draws from many rich traditions of US and UK guitar driven wave, minimal synth, early black metal and new indie rock from Brooklyn respectively - layering lush washes of atmospheric anglophilic guitars above a warmly orchestral analogue synth and drum machine fueled minimal electronic backdrop. Equally of disparate origins are the band members themselves, Chris was born in New Jersey and grew up with half-Indian Kirti in the South of France, although both were schooled in London. Despite such varied influences and backgrounds, Frank(just Frank) indeed proudly embrace the French pop musical tradition and present a freshly recontextualized version of the french cold wave sound, which might well be most appropriately called ‘La Vague Froide Moderne in 2010. 

The album presents a carefully crafted set of nine trax in which shiver-inducing swathes of guitars, restrained and mournful, battle alongside and often it seems directly against bitingly insistent vocals, that effortlessly switch between French and English. No lyrical themes are off limits for the apparently fearless young band, as the poetically flowing voice espouses tales ranging from provocatively centrist takes on international politics to vulnerably personal epics of heartbreak and addiction, and these tensions between right and left, darkness and light, and private versus public consistently replay themselves throughout the record, both in the lyrical content and the musical dynamics at work. This powerfully emotional record is made with simultaneous confrontation and restraint, as well as viscerally sensitized homemade DIY intimacy and feverishly swaggering aggression, and it is this balancing act and interplay of extremes that Frank(just Frank) harnesses to carve out The Brutal Wave!" - Wierd.

"Beyond its facade as the fountainhead of American cultures glitz and glamour, Los Angeles has always had equally, if not often more alluring underbelly. Skid row squalor, gang wars, excesses of all varieties, and the stench of vanity gone awry permeate the city, poised to overtake the shimmering mirage of Hollywood idealism. Frank Alpines eponymous debut for Wierd Records is LA noir at its finest: a frenzy of claustrophobic, danceable dread that skirts the line between outer-directed nihilistic aggression and fragrant introversion. Nocturnal synthesizers, isolated, frenetic, and monotonous, plot a destination either to somewhere new and uncertain, or perhaps to nowhere at all. Frank Alpine is the alias of Rich Moreno, a veteran of LAs punk and darkened indie underground scenes, as well as a former member of New Collapse and The Boy Scouts of Annihilation. Alpine uses only consumer Casio synths to create a sound thats so thick and so harsh at times, to call it lo-fi would be to suggest something far weaker than the sounds themselves express. And while the atmosphere and gritty electronics might hearken to certain strains of industrial music or power electronics, the decided pep of the songs, and their almost blues-like simplicity situate Alpines music much more squarely in the realms of punk and even old-fashioned rock and roll. Whether "No Exit" intends to reference Sartres existential drama is irrelevant; the mood conjured is apropos of a post-death limbo. The albums second track, "Heart is Grey" finds Alpine crying out the songs title ad infinatum, as if to take the tired tropes of mope rock and give them new life as the ritualistic refrain of a headbanging electropunk dirge. And the wordless, relentlessly menacing "Through Your Window" invites one to nervously contemplate the voyeurism suggested by the songs title. Whats being seen, and by whom? Fascinating, yet remarkably uncomplicated tricks such as these carry Frank Alpines brand of minimal electronics to areas both cerebral and viscerally primal. While many contemporary electronic artists sound hints, however heavily or slightly, towards a European sensibility, Frank Alpine lives more in the realm of David Lynchs disturbed Americana, or the sinister aggression of No Wave. Somewhere between the warped intensity of the former and the acidic straightforwardness of the latter, Alpine has carved out his distinctive space: an eccentric loner squealing from inside the decay, making noise with a pulse thats paranoid and mechanical, yet unmistakably human." -Wierd

Title: Covered In Dust
Format: LP
Label: Wierd
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Covered in Dust the debut LP from Louisianas Kindest Lines, opens suitably with a beat that sounds a lot like like an industrial rendition of The Ronettes Be My Baby. Brian Wilson cited that song by the legendary New York girl group as the greatest pop recording ever, and many refer to it as the perfect example of Phil Spectors "wall of sound" production. Those artists established many of the templates for how modern music is made, but what still stands out is the sense of that music having been simply dreamed-up. With organic washes of layered melodic guitars and lush songcraft, this New Orleans-based trio is definitely doing some dreaming of their own. Kindest Lines are blazing a unique path into an enchanting realm of darkened electronic indie pop that is at once welcoming and foreboding. Just as Phil Spector clearly had his demons, and just as post-Katrina New Orleans in the wake of the BP environmental disaster has become as much an emblem of loss and destruction as of Mardi Gras festiveness and upbeat jazz, the tension between dancey jubilance and the cold heart of darkness lurks in each song. Lead singer Brittany Terry expertly navigates the listener through these terrains with a voice thats never so cold as to sound detached, and yet never saccharine. Her sultry earnestness effortlessly compliments primary songwriter Jack Champagnes moody, punchy compositions while her diary-like lyrics and unassuming delivery invite the listener into her charmed universe. The title of the albums second track sums it up: Destructive Paths to Live Happily. Its music by and for people who are neither committed to sullen defeat nor blind optimism, but rather for those that tend toward the kind of affirmative, outsider attitude that refuses to take either side and instead finds a way to embrace the ways in which the two coexist. As Running Into Next Year commences with its aggressive dance beat and ominous minor key synth melodies, the lyrics take an unexpected turn: its a song about the possibility of being happy in love. Colored though the scene may be by neurotic overthinking and booze-induced confusion, its an honest portrait of those most elusive pangs of longing that mean so much precisely because of the way that doubt interjects itself. Tracks like Record Party and Prom Song cement those themes as they play out like bittersweet, nostalgic audio snapshots. Produced by cerebral electro-experimentalists Alfredo Nogueira and Josh Eustis of Telefon Tel Aviv, yet brimming with spacey guitar work and hooks aplenty, Covered in Dust is a record that thrives on harmonious disparities while maintaining all of its thematic and sonic cohesion. The Ronettes pined, "Oh wont you please be my baby." Updated by Terry? "Psychotic outbursts in the name of love, always wanting." When you get down to the bleeding heart of the matter, its kind of all along the same lines." -Wierd

Over the past 5 years the state of electronic music has seen artists slowly remove themselves from their work and visceral musical expression in general. Traditional electronic machines have been replaced by the computer as the dominant generator of contemporary sounds. It is in this climate that Sean McBride, aka Martial Canterel, began performing at bars, clubs and private parties in Brooklyn, NY in 2002, functioning singlehandedly as the pioneer and instigator of what has now become a new movement of minimal electronic bands in the United States. Martial Canterel records and performs using only vintage analogue synthesizers and sequencers, producing a highly-crafted, complex, and idiosyncratic form of electronic music that is simultaneously romantically melancholic and affirmatively aggressive. Inspired both by the first wave of relatively unknown minimal electronic bands in Northern Europe(a musical genre also often referred to as minimal synth) and the seminal industrial noise bands such as Throbbing Gristle, SPK, and Cabaret Voltaire, Martial Canterel presents a new optimistic paradigm for electronic music in which the analogue synthesizer functions anew as a folk instrument of humanist resistance to a virtual soft synth, iPod, and iTunes saturated world of click and drag dematerialized abstraction." - Wierd.

The carefully crafted, private, raw, and often feverishly aggressive minimal synth sound he has pioneered has been a pillar influence for the Brooklyn minimal electronics scene and and beyond. You Today incorporates bright, urgent melodies that snake and and swagger between major and minor keys, emanating a subtle melancholic darkness and a rhythmic, militant propulsion keeping things moving against all odds. Thoughtful yet distinctly danceable and infectious, the two songs on this gem of a disc are the apex of McBrides icily idiosyncratic oeuvre." - Wierd.

"Wierd Records is proud to present the new album by Martial Canterel entitled You Today. Since his first live performances in 2002, Sean McBride, aka Martial Canterel (who also performs as half of the duo Xeno & Oaklander), has produced a rich catalog of self-released and limited edition LPs, cassettes, and compilation tracks. The carefully crafted, private, raw, and often feverishly aggressive minimal synth sound he has pioneered has been a pillar influence for the Brooklyn minimal electronics scene and and beyond. Merging the influences of the first wave of relatively unknown minimal electronic bands in northern Europe, and seminal industrial noise bands such as Throbbing Gristle and SPK, with the smoothly stylish songcraft of early British New Wave, Martial Canterel records and performs using analogue synthesizers, sequencers and drum machines exclusively. Thoughtful yet distinctly danceable and infectious, this record is the apex of McBrides icily idiosyncratic sound. You Today incorporates bright, urgent melodies that snake and and swagger between major and minor keys. The songs emanate a subtle melancholic darkness and a rhythmic, militant propulsion keeping things moving against all odds. Lyrically, the album continues McBrides exploration of the increasing difficulty in trying to connect with real people and real things as technology renders the material substance of bodies and objects ever more abstract and distant. This yearning for unmediated human contact with the world is appropriately echoed throughout the album by the hands-on, entirely live approach to recording and performance ("the molding of electricity" as he has referred to his compositional technique.) "Market" and "Sidestreets" each delve into the disconcerting atmospheres of crowds, buildings, objects and intimates; the city with its boulevards, by-ways, and dead ends complicating the meeting of two lost and wandering figures (perhaps lovers?) The restrained, sensual haze of "The Empty Sand" conjures oceanic imagery while the title track is a lament to love lost, ambiguously addressing the listener as a memory image of potential connection and attraction. The solitary listener can certainly enjoy the music of Martial Canterel, but its visceral intensity also translates directly to the dancefloor. Amidst a flurry of flesh in motion, in a blissful atmosphere of material connection with others, the concepts that permeate the music and its creation become a reality." - Wierd.

Title: Strange Neighbors
Format: 7"

Country: USA
Price: $5.00
"When asked in a recent interview why he moved from Tallahassee to New York, Sean Earl Beard of Plastic Flowers replied, "My choice was to get comfortable or get out. And I can never get comfortable." Bittersweet melodies of alienation, the charms of romantic detachment, the possibility of coloring ones less-than ideal surroundings with sounds that dramatize and enhance what might be otherwise too drab to take -- these are the raison detre of Plastic Flowers. Beards story is in some ways fairly classic--small town boy from an unstable home leaves it all behind to come make music in the big city. But familiar farmboy rock and roll imagery dissolves as the picture of a former punk kid from sunny Florida transplanted to overcast Brooklyn making clever yet heartfelt electronic pop comes into focus. The Strange Neighbors 7" includes three tracks that appropriately showcase Beards knack for song craft--the title track, "Strange Neighbors" and "She Learned the Best Way"--as well has his talent for facilitating escapism through lush melodic compositions like the instrumental "Serious Pleasures", which begs to invade the headphones of a lonely dreamers walk home on an Autumn night after parting ways with an unrequited crush. The digital version of the 7" comes with an alternate b-side bonus track." -Wierd.

"Tension develops at the points where modernity and the ageless meet. That tension has a rhythm that has incarnated itself in various forms of contemporary music, and sometimes the sound it makes stands out more than others. ROSENKOPF channels that deep, relentless sound that feels at once like urban ruin and primordial nature, as if the unyielding cycles of ritual and decay are echoing through each instrument. As the latest addition to the Wierd Records roster they embody one of those standout moment. Melding electronics, guitars, bass and live drums, samples, and confrontational vocals together in a seamless, non-hybridized way, ROSENKOPF has found a motley group of admirers, from those those attracted to the experimental end of black metal to those that gravitate toward the recent mutation of codeine-slowed hip-hop and demonic drone. But looking closer at the bands unmistakable spiritual bond to monolithic giants of the deathrock and crustpunk past, the gravity of their preoccupations and the singularity of their sound anchors them in a specific and unique place. While the band members have roots that reach far into the punk underground (Detestation, Question, Thriller, Dawn of Humans etc.), that serves only as the soil out of which ROSENKOPF has grown its poisonous flora. "Burning Spirits" opens the LP with bassist Saira Huffs hypnotic bassline. Groove-oriented drum machines are gradually washed over with vocalist Soren Rois urgently abrasive vocals and live metal percussion reminiscent of primitive industrialists Einsterzende Neubaten or Crash Worship. "Heed," with its charging drums and crushing guitars sounds appropriately like the fearless summoning of an as-yet-unnamed menacing force while still managing to sound anthemic. By the time "Troth" kicks in with its psychedelic overtones, the ever-increasing tempos evoke the ecstatic qualities of religious ceremony and carnal sexuality. Throughout the closing track, delicate synthesizers float atop more impatient rhythms and unwelcoming textures as moments of sonic violence are severely punctuated by pressure-inducing, almost ruthlessly patient restraint. Taken as a whole, ROENKOPF is a debut remarkable for its ability to conjure atmospheres that might have provocative names like "apocalyptic optimism" or "brooding grace." Its a darkly focused pandemonium of resistance that names no enemy. Instead, they paint its face and rally around its effigy." -Wierd.

Title: Desespero
Format: 7"

Country: USA
Price: $6.00
"Wierd is proud to present the first single Desespero from Staccato du Mals forthcoming debut album Sin Destino. SdM is the solo project of Ramiro Jeancarlo from Miami, Florida, who has long been a beloved member of the Wierd Records family - performing as a member of both Opus Finis and Flesh Graey Display and appearing on both of the Wierd Compilation collections. Staccato du Mal summons the hot and dirty post-coital Miami sun, performing on entirely homemade and modified analogue gear, to produce a menacingly nihilistic, sinister sound seething with wild confrontational energy. Sung almost entirely in Spanish, the forthcoming debut album is informed by Jeancarlos half Chilean, half Venezuelan background. Pervasive throughout the LP is an aura of dread and claustrophobia that is no doubt a product of living within the mini-mall infested suburbs that sprawl across the dry, lonely landscape of South Florida. Despite this disorienting feeling, there are inspired moments of resolution where warm, delicately sensitized melodies and sparkling psychedelic soundscapes counter the bleakness. On Desepero, Jeancarlos pleas to “let me in, I want in” are frighteningly forward but made inviting against a danceable and very accessibly inviting synthpop background." - Wierd.

"Wierd Records is proud to present the new LP by Staccato du Mal, entitled Sin Destino. Freezing out the heat-seeking Miami scene with his cold minimal synth for the past decade, Ramiro Jeancarlo (1/2 of the industrial outfit Opus Finis) offers up ten tracks of analogue darkness. Sung in both English and Spanish, the forthcoming album is informed by Jeancarlos half Chilean, half Venezuelan background. Pervasive throughout the LP is an aura of dread and claustrophobia that without a doubt evokes the hot, dry, lonely landscape of suburban South Florida. But beyond the dismal swamplands, its possible to detect the mournful ambiance of cultures plagued for centuries by colonization, civil war and political turmoil. Whether Jeancarlo means to offer "Salvation Through Suffering" as an alternative to everything from Catholicism to revolutions-turned-tyrannies is not explicit, but the distinctive mood of dread conjures something more monolithic than plain nihilism. Therein lies the fascinating duality: "Lost Image" could as easily land in a soundtrack to a film about a lonesome teen in desolate suburbia as it could a film about Pinochets Caravan of Death. Despite the disorienting feeling of so much of the album, Staccatos own coup détat comes in the moments of resolution where warm melodies and nearly psychedelic soundscapes counter the bleakness. On “Desespero,” Jeancarlos pleas to “let me in, I want in” are frighteningly forward but made inviting against a danceable and very accessible synthpop background. The instrumental “En Sueños” has a sweetly bright melody atop sinister beats that plumb the depths, while the synthesizers in “Happy Endings” happily climb into major dimensions as the signature darkness shines through. While this album could be described as Wierd Records least commercial release so far, Staccato du Mals music is rich with sonic feeling that makes for infinitely rewarding listening. Working within the confines of the minimal synth genre, Jeancarlo manages to include elements of pop, noise, and industrial that slink to the surface with each eerie listen." - Wierd.

Title: Wierd Compilation Volume II : Analogue Electronic Music 2008
Format: 4 LP Set
Label: Wierd
Country: USA
Price: $40.00
"Wierd Records is proud to present the Wierd Compilation Volume II : Analogue Electronic Music 2008, an international collection of 39 trax by 30 bands producing contemporary music with analogue synthesizers, sequencers, and drum machines. This release is made up of four vinyl LPs packaged in a deluxe gatefold sleeve and is accompanied by a 32 page 12" x 12" book. The book contains over 300 photos, many of which were taken from live performances at the weekly Wierd label DJ and music party active in New York City since 2003, as well as lyrics and band bios. Also included in the booklet is a statement of purpose for this vast project entitled 2008 : The Analogue Synthesizer as a Folk Instrument of Humanist Resistance that is as ambitious conceptually as it is musically. Over the past several years, electronic musicians have slowly removed themselves from the visceral aspect of musical expression as they have more completely embraced the computer as the generator of contemporary sounds. It is in this climate that the Wierd Compilation Volume II proposes that analogue electronic music no longer represents a post-apocalyptic vision of an uncertain post-human future as it once did at the inception of New Wave in the late 1970s. Today, the situation is precisely the opposite. In the world of click and drag virtual software synths, the analogue instrument represents a new form of resistance in which the supposedly outdated machine is reborn as a folk instrument not unlike the acoustic guitar, violin, or hand drum. The human presence is affirmed and preserved through the artists direct interaction with the machines and the electricity that runs through them. Inspired by the seminal compilations of early industrial music such as Xtract Records The Elephant Table Album and Three Minute Symphony, Third Mind Records Life at the Top, and the Insane Music cassette series, the Wierd Compilation Volume II brings together independent artists from the new minimal electronic music scene emerging in New York, Miami, and all throughout continental Europe with the the firmly established Noise scene in the US. In the same spirit that these early genre-traversing compilations brought together both pop and experimental artists who were united by their resistance to the superficial excesses of commercial New Wave, the artists on this release are united by their DIY attitude and their resistance to the virtual excesses of modern laptop pop. All have found analogue synthesizers to be the ideal instrument for producing raw, emotive music in a world where the human touch and presence is quickly getting clicked and dragged into oblivion." Wierd. Includes A Squared (Germany), A Vague Disquiet (with Mark Solotroff of Bloodyminded, ex-Intrinsic Action/Chicago), Angel of Decay(Jonathan Canady of Deathpile/Philadelphia), Audiodakt(Germany), Charlie Draheim(Ypsilanti, MI), Demons(with Nate young of Wolf Eyes/Detroit), Carlos Giffoni(No Fun Productions/NYC), Cadaver in Drag(Lexington, KY), Envenomist(Columbus, OH), Epee du Bois(Wierd Records/NYC), Flesh Graey Display(Wierd Records/Miami), Hive Mind(Ann Arbor, MI), Human Puppets(Athens, Greece), Led er Est(Wierd Records/NYC), Martial Canterel(Wierd Records/NYC), Opus Finis(Wierd Records/Miami), Ronin(Miami), The Siamese Pearl(Miami), Pax Titania(Tallahassee, FL), Private Entertainment(Moscow, Russian Federation), Sleep Museum(Wierd Records/NYC), Spine Scavenger(Aaron Dilloway, ex-Wolf Eyes), Staccato du Mal(Wierd Records/Miami), Three to Forgotten(Wierd Records/NYC), Tobias, Bernstrup(Stockholm, Sweden), Vendome(Andreas Sippel of Second Decay/Germany), Waves(Damion Romero and John Wiese/Los Angeles), Wave Tank(Athens, Greece), Xeno and Oaklander(Wierd Records/NYC), and Zug Im Veins(w Geert Coppens of Twilight Ritual/Belgium). Second volume of this true "labor of love" series from artist Pieter Schoolwerths Wierd label, this time expanding the sounds to include more experimental synth recordings along with the minimal/dark/cold wave. Very Highly Recommended!

Title: Selenelion
Format: CD
Label: Wierd
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"Its been said before that Stanley Kubrick seemed like a classical composer who created films instead -- that the images played out more like arias and overtures than a matinee movie. The inverse of that is probably the only way to approach Selenelion, the debut LP from Vaura. Less a collection of songs and more like an expedition into an elegantly foreboding universe, the eleven tracks that comprise the latest release from Wierd Records sound as if they were each crafted to evoke unearthly scenery and monolithic events. 

From harsh distortion and aggressive screams to cold and shimmering clean guitars and vocals, the spectrum of sound on Selenelion is both varied and atmospherically cohesive. Thunderous drums, droning synthesizers, percussive metals, acoustic guitars, and vocal arrangements that sometimes approach ritualistic plainchant recall artists like Ulver and Swans. Vauras particular blend of brutality and romantic melodicism can be attributed in part to the stylistic mesh of musicians: Kevin Hufnagel, Toby Driver, Josh Strawn, and Charlie Schmid also play in Gorguts, Dysrhythmia, Kayo Dot, Secret Chiefs 3, and Religious to Damn. Selenelion was recorded and mixed by Colin Marston of progressive black metallists Krallice, and signals a nod for Wierd Records to the roots of founder Pieter Schoolwerth who is also member of the seminal noise outfit Bloodyminded and a continuing supporter of acts like Locrian. 

The album title refers to a horizontal lunar eclipse: the moment at which the sun and the eclipsed moon can be seen at the same time. With song titles referencing everything from an Etruscan demoness to a Luciferian take on the conversion of St. Paul, and with artwork by the German photographer Alexander Binder, the unifying thread is an unmistakable sense of shadow-drenched enigma. "Drachma" refers to the coins that bought passage for the dead into the underworld, suggesting that everything following that track is part of an Orpheus-like journey. But repeated nods to the occult literature of Jorge Luis Borges, in particular to "The Aleph" and "The Zahir," two stories that deal with infinity and vision, suggest that beyond the the dark hallucinations there is also a serious meditation taking place on the limits and paradoxes of seeing. Approaching such subject matter by way of something as invisible and intangible as music, Vaura invites the listener to share in a visceral, yet intimate ceremony of sensuality and destruction." -Wierd.

"A portrait emerges in the video for the lead single from XENO & OAKLANDERs Sets & Lights: one of two separate yet unmistakably intertwined individuals. LIZ WENDELBO  gracefully ascends and descends a menacing staircase while SEAN MCBRIDE stands patiently in the ambiguous, blurred distance. The time is warped, the architecture is unfriendly, and the relationship between both people and their physical environment is made anxiously questionable. And yet, dominating the proceedings is an air of exoticism and pervasive sensuality in the face of what feels like an impending violent event. The collision of these tensions, atmospheres, and personas is soundtracked on this latest offering from Wierd Records. Xeno & Oaklander create a universe where technology is beautifully timeless, where electricity pulses with vigor and effortless finesse. The standard meaning of "ghosts of technology," with its equally standard images of looming architecture and lifeless shells of machines, is rendered obsolete. Nimble electronic melodies sing, stretch and glow like elegant apparitions. Grandiosity and restraint live harmoniously side-byside, just as the dual vocals of McBride and Wendelbo weave in and out of one another, sometimes an isolated croon and sometimes a layered texture. The interplay between McBride and Wendelbo yields very little that is conventional, but quite a lot thats alluring. Theirs is an enigmatic combination of various sensibilities that nevertheless produces a singularly focused vision. McBride sings, "the theater, the stage, the sets the lights, masking some grand delight." This is a record that makes the most of the power of electronic instruments to set a scene, to evoke intrigue, and to invite the mind to wander into those shadowy places where grand delights hide." - Wierd.

Price: $14.00
"Wierd Records is proud to announce the release of a vinyl edition of Xeno & Oaklanders Vigils EP, originally self-released by the band as a limited edition CDR in 2006, here remastered with a previously unavailable bonus track. Merging the cold, cinematic aesthetics of artist Liz Wendelbo with the architectural exactitude of Sean McBride (a.k.a. Martial Canterel), Xeno & Oaklander have been the sharpest spearheads of twenty-first-century minimal synth since their formation in 2004. Using analogue synthesizers and instruments exclusively, the duo record all of their songs live in the studio, a challenge to the common practice of cut and paste recording where immediacy is often sacrificed in favor of a far-removed drag and drop electronic pop. Recorded in one continuous take on October 1st, 2006, and played to loving death by all of the DJs at the weekly Wierd party for the past four years, Vigils has long been a cornerstone and inspiration to a new young generation of electronic bands in the Brooklyn synth scene and beyond. Uptempo, echo-laden synthesizers and drum machines provide a spacious backdrop for Miss Lizs ephemeral vocal presence. Their melodic, mournful oeuvre is an invocation of a lost future that was abandoned years ago in favor of something less human. These 8 tracks are both fragile and psychedelic, suggesting an electronic equivalent of the British shoegaze bands while maintaining the wildly aggressive stripped-down, raw and unmediated spirit of punk and the seminal industrial noise groups that informed the ideals of the original wave of European minimal electronic bands." - Wierd.

"大凶風呂敷 are Cammisa Buerhaus and Tamio Shirashi, a dash of twin impossibilities out of time yet essentially contemporary. They are the best new unit in lower New York City. 26 year old Buerhaus is a leader in the new wave of hand made sound. She puts a youth spin on the Broken Music approach of classically decadent avant-garde sonic events and the plastic esoterica of a figure like, say, Anne Gillis. With 大凶風呂敷, she plays her self built wood organ, half part sound sculpture, half part hallucinatory drone machine. Shirashi needs no introduction; he was a central figure in the Club Minor scene in Japan, jammed in Taco and A-Musik, helped form Fushitsusha, has released various works of site specific saxophone playing. His style is some of the most atom splitting minimalism to ever locate your body in space. Thus, the sound of 大凶風呂敷 is a tense drama whose nerve chilling minimalism literally encodes the space for terrifying truths to appear all around you. Theres nothing else like it right now. 大凶風呂敷 last year played everywhere from Bushwick rooftops with butoh dancers to Issue Project Room where Gozo Yoshimasu joined in. At the time of this writing, Keith NNCK Connolly has since joined 大凶風呂敷. Edition of 50 on Cammisa Buerhaus new imprint, WILD FLESH TAPES. "-Ravi Binning.

"A new recording by Limpe Fuchs of Anima-Sound. Serpentinit Stones, Iron, Vox. The granite stones reflect the sunlight sometimes." - Wild Flesh.

“I am trying to find the sound Limpe Fuchs has found already.” - Helmut Lachenmann.

“Limpe Fuchs is a composer of acoustic and visual happenings who creates sound with unusual instruments. Born in 1941, Fuchs came of age in the hedonistic, politically charged sixties. After studying piano and violin in the early sixties at the school of music in Munich, a city full of fertile, counter-culture creativity, near the end of the decade she started „Anima Sound“, a collective name for twenty years of “sound research” with her partner, sculptor Paul Fuchs. Also known as “Anima Musica”, they epitomized the ingenious marginal freak scene of the sixties and seventies and are often cited as a major influence on Krautrock Animas anarchic recordings were radical, atonal improvisations with unconventional instruments, unrestrained creativity, and utterly unstructured performances - primal, experimental free-jazz with a touch of prog-rock. In an unlikely array, instruments like drums, bass and cornet were combined with Paul Fuchs own homemade inventions: the Fuchshorn, Fuchszither, and Fuchsbass; Limpe Fuchs wordless vocal yelps and screams; and audio-visual machines: light-ray oscillographs and movement holograms. Fringe community outsiders, the Fuchs took freak-out avant-garde to a new level. In Peterskirchen, near Munich, they built their assortment of instruments and equipment; modified horns, sheet-metal percussion (including the ballast string, an arrangement of wire-strung metal bars suspended from a brass drum and played like a cross between a vibraphone and a gong) and DIY electronics. Anima-Sounds first album, Stürmischer Himmel, was recorded in a 1,000-year-old cottage and released by Ohr Records in 1971. That year in the summer, they also played the Ossiach, a three-day outdoor festival organized by acclaimed Austrian classical/jazz pianist Friedrich Gulda (unofficially released on the double CD Ossiach Live) that also included Tangerine Dream and Pink Floyd. From 1971 to 1973, the duo Anima Musica became the trio Anima when Gulda joined them for tours and recording. He appeared on the albums Anima, released by the Pilz label, and Musik Für Alle, both of which came out in 1972. The double LP Der Regt Mich Auf/A Controversy, recorded between 1978 and 1982, included new band member Zoro Fuchs, son of Paul and Limpe, on drums. By 1987 Anima had become Limpe Fuchs solo project. She preserves the no formalisms, no explanations methodology in her solo work, and continues exploring the outer realms with her characteristic delight in invention. Using piano, violin, Fuchs-instruments and natural objects like stones and wood, and her singularly freeform, flighty vocals, she released three solo albums, Via in 1987, Muusiccia, in 1993, and Nur Mar Mus in 1999. She says of her recent work “ The visual aspect is of the same importance as the acoustic… Life and music alive…”” - CTM.

Compounded by the infusion of collaged audio sourced from VINE, this tape draws a thick line of lipstick in the sand between the classic strategy of avant-punk cabaret of Die Todliche Doris and the tumbling spokenword of Disband.

“Wilde Calm Records is honored to present new work from the late Elodie Lauten, New York City composer and recipient of the 2014 Robert Rauschenberg Award. Lauten had been exploring microtonality and alternative temperament since working on a Fairlight CMI synthesizer in the early 1980s and up until her untimely death, had been continuing these explorations with the Klio, her custom modular Reaktor software synthesizer.

Many Wilde Calm fans will be familiar with Lautens music from her numerous collaborations with fellow downtown luminary Arthur Russell. Lauten and Russell met through their mutual poet friend Allen Ginsberg and shared a similar sensibility of musical openness and possibility as evident in their spiritual club classic “In the Light of the Miracle” and Russells appearance on Lautens seminal post- minimalist masterwork The Death of Don Juan.

Five remastered selections from her most recent album Transformfeature on the EP in addition to a Wilde Calm remix. For fans of Laurie Spiegel and Suzanne Ciani, Lautens synth explorations are essential.

Edition of 100 copies printed on deluxe Stumptown White/Kraft Duplex jackets from Portlands Stumptown Printers. These jackets are really beautiful with a slight texture, off-white color, and kraft interior. Hand-numbered silk-screened jackets with a full-color insert." - Wilde Calm.

Artist: HARANGUE
Title: S/T
Format: LP
Label: Wilder Prior
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"This expansive LP from Pittsburgh mainstays HARANGUE is a dreamwalk through the minds of its makers, replete with unexpected vistas from this quartet of piano, guitar, bass and drums. Opening with the taut bounce of "Wisteria," the band jumps off with brisk melancholy, weaving and unraveling the layers and hooks of this standout track. Wisteria is a defined aesthetic statement, the sound is fraught with false nostalgia for nature, for simpler times. "Uniformly Chaotic" turns on dimes, steadily driving through flowing melodies and subtly continual dynamic shifts. Harangues energetic piano and rhythm section pound while the guitar snakes in and out of contrapuntal bliss, hissing out reverb and fuzz like the Kinks Dave Davies, and countered with desperate lyrical themes suggesting Street Hassle-era Lou Reed. Side B continues Harangues sojourn with "The Valley," an epic trip of yearning through noir-ish shadows yielding to brilliant glimpses of sunlight through spring-reverb guitar texture and earth-rumbling, feedback-laden solos. The LPs closer "Whitewashed Wall" rides through the end of nights tunnel, using negative space like a magic marker. Talking deliverance and sounding dark before sunrise, the song sways between half-tempo slow dance and full-on haunt before the backbeat swings and ascends with a bubbling line of guitar triplets that bloom into grand sonic swaths--triumphant, immersive, nearly decadent, harkening back to an imaginary jam between George Gershwin and Pink Floyd in 75. Harangues lyrics sketch images of uncertain futures and abandon--a personal search for clarity, perhaps. But the album as a whole should end that search; it is a gem shining amidst static and snow." -Chicago Independent.

However, as the 80s kicked in William began to experiment with the new sounds and bleeps that could now be tweeked on modern synthesizers. Anything You Sow, William Onyeabors final LP was released in 1985 and is a true masterpiece of Afro-electro thats been rediscovered by modern acts such as Keiran Hebden AKA Four Tet and Caribou. Kicking off with the 12 minute epic When The Going Is Smooth & Good, which was used in Keiran Hebdens Essential Mix, this is a truly pioneering piece of Afro-electro-disco with a clear message in the music. Dipping in and out of intricate percussion workouts and driven by bleepy synth grooves, it has an irresistible lo fi charm. Followed by the up-tempo This Kind Of World, another percussive electronic workout that begs the question have you ever seen this kind of world?...it will appeal to fans of Nigerian Afro-funk and fans of more modern Shangaan Electro." - Wilfilms.

From the repetitive, bass driven trance music of North Africa (birthed thousands of years ago, appropriately, in Moroccos Rif Mountains), to the world famous symphonic themes of Beethoven, to the blues hook, jazz head and rock lick, the riff has been a primary tool for injecting music into the memory. As this is a Wire guide to the riff, and not another rock magazine regurgitation of rock n roll clichés, the article will be ignoring the obvious stuff like You Really Got Me, Whole Lotta Love, Smoke On The Water, My Sharona, etc, etc. Instead, it will expand the notion of what a riff is or could be, covering all sorts of nagging repetitive aspects of music, from Techno and HipHop breaks to themes in jazz, avant rock, memorable funk motifs, riffs in world music from Inuit songs to Fela Kuti, Krautrock, lower case and minimalist/systems music, etc, etc." Features: The new finnish underground (starring Avarus, the Anaksimandros, Kemialliset Ystavat, Es, Kiila, Paivansade, Hetero Skeleton, Maniacs Dream and more), Joanna Newso, irr. app. (ext.), Greg Davis, My Cat is an Alien, Invisible Jukebox: Marshall Allen.

The research for this book has taken several years of digging through record bins and scouring online auction sites for these hard to find records as well as collaborating with several prominent European collectors such as Phil King, Bass player for the Jesus and Mary Chain and the driving force behind the groundbreaking "Glitterbest" compilation among others, and Robin Wills, guitarist of the UK powerpop band the Barracudas and author of the Purepop blog, one of the longest running music blogs dedicated to junkshop glam and obscure pop 45s.

""Haste, Error" is the debut album from the aptly monikered trio Bleaks, consisting of Jeremy Lemos (White/Light, White/Lichens), Kyle Bruckmann (EKG, Lozenge) and Steve Silverstein (Christmas Decorations, Wodger pit boss). Thick, analog-synth black-hole dronisms and metallic percussive clatter meld with assorted reeds⿿all swimming in the deep end of 1980s industrial/improv sprawl, perhaps bringing to mind the work of Factrix or early Maurizio Bianchi. This is not noise as it is currently understood. Rather, Bleaks ravage with precise subtlety and a surgical moodiness that is frankly unsettling. ⿿Haste, Error⿝ was meticulously put to tape in Chicago over a three-day span in 2007. Post Script: A black metal band was recording across the hall at the same studio complex. Hearing Bleaks wafting through the hallways, they brought up the possibility of the boys guesting on some of their material. This didnt end up happening.

"Following releases on such labels as Kranky, 12K and Community Library, "Far Flung Hum⿝, the third album from New York based Christmas Decorations, finds the group again broadening the palette used in their unique take on modern experimental electronic music. Conjured in the Catskill Mountains of upstate New York over four days in summer 2007, the album is their boldest work to date. Including founding members Steve Silverstein and Nick Forte (formerly of Beautiful Skin, Rorschach, and solo work on Schematic records), the band has expanded to a quartet allowing for more interactive live playing then on past efforts. With scant preconception, the band used this session to explore group improvisational configurations and unconventional voicings, yielding a richness that at times even surprised themselves. Recorded both indoors and out,  the sound of ⿿Far Flung Hum⿝ is both warmly present and otherworldly, think early Zoviet France or maybe Asmus Teichens remixing a Finnish folk collective.  Acoustic banjo and pump organ drones meld with pedal-processed ethnic percussion, subtly treated guitar washes, and pointillistic analog synthesis, to create deep compositions that chart unexpected terrain and reveal new layers upon each listen. limited to 200 copies, hand made letterpressed covers, self released"-Wodger

Price: $16.00
"A rich tapestry of wires and pedals inextricably link Wolf Eyes Young, Dilloway and Olson, and their respective towers of homemade electronics, guitars, horns, gongs, etc. It all has fused into a single, monolithic machine-entity. Wires even slither up into their mouths for sonic purposes. It is an over-amplification of the humming spinal cord and the chatter of a billion cells sharing information. This machine-entity that Young, Dilloway and Olson have brought to life sprouts limbs and runs roughshod across America. This is the vinyl release of their new full-length CD for Sub Pop, Burned Mind. Wolf Eyes trademark boil-bursting thud has evolved into the roar of a lithe panther with rattling jackhammers for claws. Agility and quickness are now this beast?s most lethal attributes. Placed on the evolutionary charts, Burned Mind appears as the progeny of Throbbing Gristles Heathen Earth sound model. The complexity of muscularity and emotional range found in this Wolf Eyes release has rendered its apparent ancestry slow, clumsy and rather limited in comparison. Fuck, man, cite all the top-shelf noise and power electronics bands until you?re blue in the face Whitehouse, New Blockaders, Nurse with Wound, whatever.. but none possess the internal being of Wolf Eyes. The former were performance artists flirting with the dire circumstances of the human condition in the abstract. Wolf Eyes just ARE the dire circumstances of the modern human condition. Ever watch a movie about the future and the future is so oppressively grim, violent, foreign and insipid, that even a romance with nihilism seems way too quaint and inappropriate of a response? And then you realize we live in drastic fucking times, and Burned Mind is drastic fucking music." -Justin F. Farrar  Burned Mind was recorded from October 2003 through June 2004 primarily by the band themselves. Bill Skibbe and Jessica Ruffins recorded parts at Key Club in Benton Harbor, MI. Mixing help came from Brendan M. Gillen.

"Debut release on PussyGutts private imprint Wolvserpent - a solo work by Blake Green of PussyGutt -- limited to 300 hand-numbered copies in wraparound silkscreened sleeves. A seriously epic doom-pop masterwork here." "In the mist a bell is tolling and the crow sounds his dire warning. The funeral shroud adorns its lifeless bearer. Alter creeps like the fog of a thousand weeping brides, a serenade of gothic tragedy consumed by loss and battered by countless defeats. Alter, one half of the bleak doom ghosts Pussygutt, sings a lament of sorrow under a cold full moon. A mystical tale of dark, dreary sadness told by candlelight in the graveyard of centuries past. Succumb to despair and taste thy grief everlasting." - Dave Adelson.

"Intense, layered, guitar acid-wash motorbike rock from a San Francisco act who, with one record, are now one of my favorite bands on the planet circa 2006. Imagine an ear-blowing cross between Suicide, �??White Light/White Heat�?� Velvet Underground, the guy that did that "Get Stoned Ezy with the Afflicted Man" record and some nut with a tape loop machine, and you�??ve got Wooden Shjips on this wide-grooved psychedelic head trip." -Agony Shorthand .

"BlankDogs are actually singular: Its the insanely prolific one-man Brooklyn-based band of Mr. Blank Dog. We dont know too much about the biography of the guy behind the bedroom new-wave pop/punk and hes usually covering his face with masks or bedspreads, but thats fine. The aura of anonymity allows you to focus on the sounds -- and, really, he might be releasing a ton of things, but theres definitely a higher jam to crap ratio. Its like Joy Division vocal lines with the Cures synth and guitar melodies filtered through ancient submerged keyboards and eroded recording equipment. And that voice? All the feedback in the world cant hide his knack for melody. Blank Dogs have been making plenty of rumbles in the noisier and more secretive outposts of the underground (half his discographys sold out), but Troubleman Unlimiteds just repressed his very recommended full-length On Two Sides (on yellow vinyl in an edition of 500) and In The Reds releasing a 20-song double LP (or single CD) Under And Under in January.

The yield was as characteristically unhinged as one might expect: sweeping electronic sounds backed with wood and bone percussion spirit-conjure. However also harvested was some new and especially tasty crop: sung and spoken song, electric guitar/conga "rock," and an odd ghostly sheen coating the entire proceeding. Nuss comments on the session: "I remember when we were recording, momentarily leaving the studio and going out into the night and feeling it thicken like a partition separating us from this intense state of clear consciousness we had in the recording, which was like⿦ humankinds natural state. And then thinking about Jesper from FU, an adopted Vietnamese living in DK, and how much he resembles Michael Jackson, and realizing that across continents no man can be divided from himself.

Title: Grey-Eyed Girls
Format: LP
Label: Woodsist
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"When Tim Cohen told Shayde Sartin he was writing a song called Be My Hooker, the Fresh & Onlys bassist looked at the singer/guitarist and said, Theres no way were gonna have a song with that title, dude, explains Sartin. But sure enough, he laid a riff down and I was like, Jesus christ, I cant believe you pulled something meaningful out of such a stupid line. Welcome to the push/pull dynamic thats fueled the Fresh & Onlys steady stream of releases over the past year, including last springs self-titled LP (Castle Face) and Grey-Eyed Girls (Woodsist). And to think it all started the old-fashioned way -- with Sartin and Cohen simply hanging out after work, playing their favorite punk (Buzzcocks, The Mekons) and classic rock (Country Joe and the Fish, cued up alongside slabs of psych from the groups homebase, San Francisco) records alongside a growing collection of empty beer cans. I cant really explain what happened or why, says Sartin. I guess we listened to records until we were on the same page, and from that point on, we never stopped recording. As simple as all of that sounds, the duo first bought a tape machine five years ago. When that failed to produce any concrete cuts, Cohen focused on his previous avant-pop band, Black Fiction, and Sartin split his time between session and live work for such bands as the Skygreen Leopards, Papercuts and Citay. Not to mention his close friend Kelley Stoltz, who ended up releasing the first Fresh & Onlys 7" (the limited Imaginary Friends EP) in early 2008. With so much music hitting shops in such a short time (Sartin says the band already has boxes of backlogged tapes), you might think the Fresh & Onlys camp have a problem with quality control. Quite the contrary; Sartin and Cohen are very careful about what they release. And while the duo writes and records the bands songs, the arrangements are usually fleshed out with guitarist Wymond Miles, drummer Kyle Gibson, and backup singer Heidi Alexander. If we take a song into the studio or a live setting and it doesnt have wings, says Sartin, Then we just ditch it and keep the charming demo version. The final mix of Grey-Eyed Girls sounds like a natural bridge between the raucous garage rock of the groups debut and the full-on studio record they plan on wrapping for In the Red later this year. That goes for the galloping grooves of Happy To Be Living, the shadowy post-punk of Invisible Forces, and the firework finale freak-outs that drive The Delusion of Man. Not to mention a stack of hook-slinging tracks that nix any shitgaze assumptions you may have. Were not trying to hide melodies or do the blown-out thing, says Sartin. A lot of those bands are great, but I dont want to ever cater to whats popular. Its not that Im being reactionary; were just trying to make recordings that are as rich and ear-friendly as possible. Its working." - Woodsist.

"Collection gathers pre-WOODEN WAND AND THE VANISHING VOICE material from JAMES JACKSON TOTHs GOLDEN CALVES project. "It was really all about The Godz, Jandek, The Shadow Ring, Strapping Fieldhands, Swell Maps and Tower Recordings. Beyond these, I had only heard the classic and most available free jazz, krautrock and noise albums. I was a long way from, say, the second Comus album or Charles Gayle. But this music changed my life. It was a record store owner named Eric McCarthy and a man who needs no introduction to anyone reading these notes, Matt Valentine, who taught me that there was a world beyond Dischord, Vermiform and Ebullition. I went to college, met hip people, and got a job at both the local record store and the college radio station. I was taking drugs. I bought a four track and began emulating my heroes. I called the project Golden Calves. I was eighteen years old.... In hindsight, I like to think that the noise scene liked us and responded so positively to us because, in our own naive way, we were subverting a very rigid paradigm. Touring with noise bands and moving in experimental circles but playing proper songs is what made us weird. It was an exciting, unforgettable time. These are not perfect records. Perhaps worse than so-called naive art is only-marginally-informed art and thats what this is. I should have let my talents marinate for a while before rushing out records that now sound to me like thinly-veiled love letters to Siltbreeze. But fuck it, man. I was hopelessly arrogant then and remain so today. Why else would I greenlight this fucking thing?"-James Jackson Toth, Lexington, KY, Summer 2010.

But this is no mere grab bag of remnants; its a real tight product, all around. "Paint A Babe" is a throw-back to Hunters earlier material, written and recorded simultaneously on a borrowed four-track recorder. A real sad, longing song. "A Goblin, A Goblin" took a little more time to create: this strong, sturdy number, replete with violins and creepy harmony, tells the tale of an indignant outcast. "You Will Take It and Like It," turns one central, pretty and proud guitar part over and over and over, with others mirroring it, leeching from it, grabbing on like little parasitic danglers. The original version of "Theres No Home" is here, the track that spawned an entire record title, followed by "Sleep" (titled, as it was originally, "Ooh Uuh"), from the recording that ended up on a lullaby compilation. Concluding Carrion is an acoustic re-presentation of the country-minded "Oracle," stripped down to one guitar, one melody, and one harmony, as it was originally conceived in its creation as homage.

Label: Woodsist
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Magic Lantern came into being at the mid-point of the decade, sparked into existence by a simultaneous period of musical discovery for Philip French, William Giacchi, and Cameron Stallones. Inspired by the psychedelic approach to musical tone and structure in various eras and genres of rock (not at all excluding Germany and Japan in the 70s), the three realized they ought to make use of the new creative tools theyd stumbled upon, and began jamming the summer away in twin poles of Long Beach and Whittier, CA. Over the course of a year, they recorded every jam and compiled a full-lengths worth of home-studio demos which later became their self-released CD-R. At the same time, each member was developing solo and side projects to channel parallel universes of sound. A year after their first jam together, Magic Lantern decided to make the leap to playing live and recruited good friends and like-minded musicians Chip Knechtel and Gavin Fort to be their marathon rhythm section. The jams from their CD-R were used as the blueprints for the band to develop a raw, stripped-down sound that emphasized hypnotic rhythms and improvised guitar duels. After being invited to play at the Tee Pee Records showcase Manifest Destiny in August of 07, th Lantern kept up a steady diet of shows in L.A. and Long Beach for the next year, earning a local following and two highly limited tapes on Not Not Fun Records. Through the spring of 08, they began writing new material as a band and developing the new songs live. In the summer, they recorded these jams with sound wizard Bobb Bruno, which led to the Not Not Fun LP High Beams that September. At this point, the band had fully emerged from transition into a shared creative vision of five musicians, each possessing a singular voice, all united in the common goal to engage both mind and body through good vibrations." -Woodsist.

"MV & EE take their homespun hypnotics and cosmic country sounds to new levels on Root / Void. I love this album - it trips hard and hauntingly - a gift for languid golden afternoons or late night moonlight powwows. Anthem-worthy tape edits on some cuts crack open surreal and cinematic vistas. While joined by fellow travelers here and there, this album remains in essence a fecund duet from two entwined souls, updating and re-defining their unique pool of sound. Intrepid audio bathers: get thee immersed!" - Lee Ranaldo, Italy, July 2016.

Label: Woodsist

"Innings is the second full-length from garage-pop trio Nodzzz and their first for New York imprint Woodsist. Its simple title is a nod to their origin: songwriting core Anthony Atlas and Sean Paul Presley met playing baseball in Olympia, Washington, and started Nodzzz upon relocating to San Francisco. "The album offers fourteen discretely memorable songs in the bands growing idiom—neurotic power-pop antics and jangly, shambolic post-punk—and follows a string of acclaimed records that began with their debut single in 2007, I Dont Wanna (Smoke Marijuana), which jumpstarted San Francisco cult-DIY label Make a Mess Records (subsequent home of similar debut records by Grass Widow, Brilliant Colors, White Fence and more), and was followed by a beloved, albeit short, seventeen-minute self-titled LP and the True to Life single, both on NYCs Whats Your Rupture? label." -Woodsist

"During a show with hardcore punks Hatefuck, DeBroux and company traveled to Winona, Minnesota. After a five-hour drive to the town, wasted locals, angry punks and gnarled three-legged dogs greeted them by leading them into a commandeered park. Inside the park, DeBroux found "the ultimate punk rock experience" with townies huffing rubber glue and mohawk-brandishing kids starting fights with crusties. The show ended and the locals gave the band three dollars for their troubles. A few kids asked DeBroux and company to chip in the three dollars on a keg. Soon, the crowd dispersed and left the band with no money or place to stay. The band wound up sleeping on an island between Minnesota and Wisconsin and breaking up soon thereafter. He wrote the first Pink Reason song, "Winona," about this experience." - Steve Kobak from Blastitude #25. Second press on red vinyl.

"After about a 2 year absence, Psychedelic Horseshit is back with an EP of alleged B-sides from an upcoming full length. And what has happened since we last peeked in on these "shitgaze" innovators? Well, in parts all over the world that famous "distorto-lo-fi-sound" has been popping up in quite open spaces. No Age has become the new Brittany Spears, Wavves crashed in outta nowhere like a mid-nineties major label grunge signing, and cute and sweet Vivian Girls are playing on the speakers in Target stores nationwide. What does this have to do with the new Psychedelic Horseshit EP? Well, nothing really, except that if you expect to hear that tired and true lo-fi sound, that is now so en vouge, you might be a little disappointed cause these boys have cleaned up a little bit, and from the sound of things this might only be the beginning. "I only listen to OK Computer and Cranes. The Fall sucks, DIY sucks, we suck, you suck." said Matt Horseshit in a recent interview. "Why should anyone listen to you then?" replied the reporter. "Because were FUN, duh." And even though you wanna hate em, you gotta admit, they kinda are fun. Matt is a dick, of course, and Rich is hilariously clueless mostly, and by all means most of the stuff on this SHITGAZE ANTHEMS EP shouldnt work, whether it be the white-boy dub section, the cliche acoustic ballad with backwards guitar, the blatant Dylan rips, or the overall amateur playing, but for some reason these elements that usually reek of pretention and failure actually endear you to the band and their songs. Yes, theyre called Psychedelic Horseshit. Yes, they do suck, but Ill be damned if they arent one of my favorite bands in the world, and theyre only getting better, but if I tried to tell you why itd only make em sound worse.

Public Service Announcement take a more song-oriented approach than Polizzes self-titled debut LP (Permanent Records) and its follow-up, Hissteria (Richie Records). With the treble down and the tape-heads bleeding, the LP is a montage of flange-covered tunes, in-the-red and submerged below sea level. "... reminds me of some of my other favorite mystery rock albums, like High Speed and the Afflicted Mans Get Stoned Ezy, or any Les Rallizes Denudes or Vermonster records-not necessarily in style or attack, but certainly in spirit. This is full-on destroyer guitar rock, with a palpable sense of nothing to lose and everything to prove.

"Real Estate waft in on vibes of hazy summers past. The New Jersey quartet of Martin Courtney IV, Matthew Mondanile III, Etienne Pierre Duguay and Alex Bleeker cut the sleeves short and the pop smooth to shade you from the midday heat. Every song works its way to that part of your consciousness that reveled in the fleeting waves of freedom that eked in once classes broke and the sun lingered a little longer over suburban roofs. And with three quarters of the band holding down Garden State roots its no surprise that a bit of Jersey indie-pop heritage sneaks its way into their sound, lifting the most sun streaked moments from The Feelies and Yo La Tengo and filtering them through the kaleidoscope of memories aimless drives through parched neighborhood streets. Martin Courtneys songwriting has a way of wrapping up the immediacy of youth with the ennui of age for the perfect shade of bittersweet bliss, mind you though, much heavier on the sweet than the bitter. Add to this Mondaniles (Ducktails/ Predator Vision) shimmering guitar strains full of equal parts sea foam and beer foam, pepper in the boardwalk clatter of Duguays drums Bleekers staccato low end and the perfect afternoon is just a lawn chair and boom box away." -Andy French/raven sings the blues

Another half hour in the haze, burned and overturned.

Artist: SPECTRE FOLK
Title: Blackest Medicine II
Format: LP
Label: Woodsist
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Pete Nolan has been Spectre Folk since before drumming and strumming in Magik Markers was his main gig, and will be Spectre Folk long after he shuffles off this mortal coil. The main benefit of ghost folk is, you can play it way after youre dead, and while youre alive the Spectre can haunt any decent willing body with a gift for the unreal. This time around fellow Michigander Steve Shelley (Sonic Youth) ran drums, Peter Meehan ( The Grey Lady) glued guitar and Aaron Mullan (Tall Firs) slithered bass in the Folk, creating an alchemy the Spectre hasnt floated since the days of basement wig wearing, in the short-lived Norman Bates era. The band entered Echo Canyon West with the intention of recording a 7" of the "up-tempo" version of Blackest Medicine, the title cut from the 2007 home-fi Woodsist debut. After several sessions, they emerged with a four song studio collage monster that wont fit in your locker and smells like smoked banana peels and undies blowing down an alleyway. A vibraphone, piano, and a plate reverb unit the size of a brooklyn apartment were all employed by the Spectre like Uri Gellar used spoons, inappropriately, desperate and bent. They physically turned the 2 inch reel of tape over so Peter Meehan could put subliminal backwards masking under his Erkin Koray worthy guitar solo on "4th Dimension Refs"and Nolan put the Temple Screamer to good use on tracks one and two, using samples of Shirley Temple Blacks Good Ship Lollipop as vocoder harmonies on choruses. As far as we know, this record also features the first gong solo by legendary skinsman Steve Shelley, since the gong heavy debut Crucifucks LP. Oh yeah, its full of burning psych-pop jammers too! Earmarking Nolans long standing but unspoken obsession with personal hygiene, "Keep Your Teeth Clean!" is a krauty suite that betrays Shelley and Mullans recent stint as the rhythm section for Neu! Their teutonic influence has the effect of putting the dreamy psych-fuzz that Nolan exhibited on last years "Compass" lp through a blender.. with a frog... that spills out into a wide open milky way head zone. You cant snuggle with this record, so strap yourself in and feel the Gs! Fearless as a lemming, Nolan has created a private universe here, a Society of the Spectre-cal if you will, and his gift is his freedom. Lets have a drift."- Elisa Ambrogio.

The back half of this entranced tour is like being (fortunately) trapped inside an old Upsetters jam played at half-speed with twice the shaman-chant and reverb drenched percussion. Normally we wouldnt trust taking this kind of trip with just anybody, but with wheel and rudder alike in the hands of Magic Lantern co-captain Cameron Stallones, we can sip our yage-of-choice in peace and share the Sun Araw vision as one.

"If string theory is correct, this is approximately the thirteenth album MATT VALENTINE has released that definitely shouldnt be filed under a group name (TOWER RECORDINGS, BUMMER ROAD, GOLDEN ROAD, etc.). On the other hand, if string theory is correct, this might also be his 11,000th album. The truth, one suspects, is somewhere in between. Since bedding down in southern Vermont at the dawn of the century, MV has been as cussedly prolific as anyone. The gout of LPs, cassettes, CDRs, singles and 10-inches emerging from Maximum Arousal Farm has dwarfed the output of everyone cept maybe Sunburned or Thurston. Regardless, there can never be enough MV LPs in the world, and What I Became is a beaut. Most of it is as solo as Satan, apart from percussionist JEREMY EARL (of WOODS fame), whose presence is sometimes felt more than heard. ERIKA "EE" ELDER and MIKE "MUSKOX" SMITH also pop up on a track, but the general approach here is as naked-and-loaded as the soul of Icepick Slim. As usual, MVs tunes and procedures beggar easy generification.

"The distance between 2007s At Rear House and 2010s At Echo Lake may at first seem only semantic, but it more properly represents a move from a kind of informal back porch jam ethos to a fully-committed vision of the infinite possibilities of group playing. "Over the past few years, WOODS has established themselves as an anomaly in a world of freaks. They were an odd proposition even in the outre company of vocalist / guitarist / label owner JEREMY EARLs Woodsist roster, perpetually out of time, committed to songsmanship in an age of noise, drone and improvisation, to extended soloing, oblique instrumentals and the usurping use of tapes and F/X in an age of dead-end singer-songwriters. Recent live shows have seen them best confuse the two, playing beautifully constructed songs torn apart by fuzztone jams and odd electronics. At Echo Lake feels like a diamond-sharp distillation of the turbulent power of their live shows, in much the same way that The Grateful Deads "Dark Star" single amplified and engulfed the planetary aspect of their improvised takes. Some of the material here--the opening "Blood Dries Darker," the euphoric "Mornin Time"-is so lush that lesser brains wouldve succumbed to the appeal of strings and horns, but At Echo Lake is more Fifth Dimension than Notorious Byrd Brothers, nowhere more so than on "From the Horn," a track as beautiful in its assault on form as "Eight Miles High" or Swell Maps "Midget Submarines." But despite the instrumental innovation the album heralds-G. LUCAS CRANEs psychedelic tape work on "Suffering Season," guest musician MATTHEW VALENTINEs harmonica and modified banjo / sitar on "Time Fading Lines"-At Echo Lake is all about the vocals. Woods secret weapon is the quality of Earls voice, absorbing the naive style of Jad Fair, Jonathan Richman and Neil Young while rethinking it as a discipline and a tradition. Here he is singing at the peak of his powers, in a high soulful style bolstered by heavenly arrangements of backing vocals. At Echo Lake feels like the transmission point for teenage garage from the past to the future. Deformed by contemporary experiments, bolstered by magical traditions, its the sound of now, right here, At Echo Lake."-David Keenan, Glasgow, March 2010.

Some of the material here--the opening "Blood Dries Darker," the euphoric "Mornin Time"-is so lush that lesser brains wouldve succumbed to the appeal of strings and horns, but At Echo Lake is more Fifth Dimension than Notorious Byrd Brothers, nowhere more so than on "From the Horn," a track as beautiful in its assault on form as "Eight Miles High" or Swell Maps "Midget Submarines."

"The fourth full length by Woods, Songs of Shame, rips deeper with both 90-second and 10-minute forays into skeletal psychedelia. This is not to say the idiosyncratic songwriting style & vocalizing of Jeremy Earl is not present in spades but expanded, colored, and twisted into a tie-dye of soundscapes. Having toured incessantly over the last 12 months as a four piece (Jarvis Taveniere, G. Lucas Crane & Kevin Morby round out the band), many of the songs on Shame benefit from having been road worn, windblown, and deeply grooved." - Woodsist.

The sun wont fade and the earworms will not leave, but the jams go on too long for the girl in the back who wonders if her friends are at another bar. Still, the ballads always make her cry. Woods is up there relaying the Woods-feel: Folk-rock, fuzz, tambourines, tapes and raw lunch pulled straight from the yard. Pop songs and other things: Sun and Shade.” -Glenn Donaldson “Loose, shuffling and tuneful, the abridged Woods experience sounds more like Wowee Zowee than Workingmans Dead, but it hits just the right contradictory note of tight arrangements and breathing-room playing to get that back-porch, weird America vibe.” -Pitchfork

Artist: COLD SUN
Title: Dark Shadows
Format: CD
Label: World in Sound
Country: Germany
Price: $23.00
"First time available on CD, Cold Sun from Austin, Texas was recorded in 1970 in the legendary Sonobeat studios, where the Mariani and Johnny Winter first LPs were produced. The Cold Sun band are considered contemporaries of Velvet Underground and The Fugs, often listed as being in a similar vein but inspirations for this unique piece actually go back to the desperate, haunted Joe Meek. All songs lyrically express dark, mystic poetry with the true 60s psychedelic floating/distorted fuzz spirit presented in short compact mini-epics along with several mind blowing long tunes, such as Ra-Ma (11 min.), Here In The Year (9 min.) and Fall (7 min.). Discovered by Rockadelic Records of Dallas, Texas in 1991, the Dark Shadows album saw the light of day the next year as a limited LP version, to become today one of the most important and revered US psychedelic underground albums from the early 70s. Rockadelic heard it in the form of an old scratchy acetate that one of the Cold Sun band members had made in order to be able to play the recording at friends` parties on their turntables. The acetate only contained 2/3 of the songs but so greatly impressed them that Rockadelic managed together with bandleader Bill Miller to release the complete sessions from master tapes. Autoharp wizard Miller eventually spearheaded Roky Ericksons international debut as the Cold Sun band joined forces with Roky in 1974 and became BliebAlien, later evolved into The Aliens and backed Roky on his famous albums and historical concerts. Carefully remastered from the master tapes, this album will bring new rewarding listening experiences in expanded fidelity, plus 2 unreleased non-album songs, authentic Live/Concert recordings of Live Again (10 min.) and Mind Aura (7 min.). The fidelity of these reel to reel live recordings is also remarkable. The CD and Vinyl issues will both have an extended booklet/insert with liner notes by Jello Biafra plus rare photos and other surprises. According to Patrick (Lama) Lundborg from Lysergia.com: Best Rockadelic LP ever, and in my opinion the best Texas LP of the time. Enjoy this ONE-HOUR psychedelic Happening, a must-have 60s/70s heavy uber-psych masterpiece!" - World In Sound.

Title: Chapter 2
Format: LP & 7
Label: World In Sound
Country: Germany
Price: $45.00
"This release is the second of World In Sounds Dragonwyck trilogy. The group from Cleveland was one of the most promising bands from the early 70s in that area. After their first legendary 1970 heavy-psych album, the keyboardist changed, and the band left their garage-y Doors influences to create their own sound. The music on these well produced stereo-recordings exists only on acetate (5 copies), and drifted more into the British vein of progressive rock, like King Crimson, Pink Floyd or Yes, but also reflects US-Westcoast feeling like Its a Beautiful Day. By 1972 Dragonwyck was performing Moody Blues complete Days of Future Passed live onstage, which turned out extremely well, so this is for sure the strongest note youll recognize. The 10 original cuts are intense and very unique with strong melodies/vocals, heavy guitar solos and an extreme variety of keyboard and vocal sounds -- an awesome mix of heavy underground rock with classical chamber-music style/elements. Included youll find a bonus 45 record (with pic. sleeve) which was released in 1974, also a poster with a bio, authentic press-releases and cool photos, remastered from the original mastertapes -- one of the finest unreleased American progressive-psychedelic hippie-art rock-albums -- truly a masterpiece in originality, creativity and musicianship!" - World In Sound.

LP version, full color gatefold sleeve. "The album was originally released in 1969 on Dot-Records but didnt receive too much attention - maybe it appeared as a too freaked out heavy version of Jefferson Airplane or Big Brother & the Holding Co. The group started back in Atlanta Georgia in 1967 as a quartet with two guitars and played true psychedelic sound, recorded at the Record Plant in NYC, and moved to Woodstock (NY). The 10 album tracks contain two arrangements of traditional tunes all others are originals reflecting true electric heavy blues with a strong Hendrix feel, duelling guitar work and an outstanding female voice/vocals/screams...lots of intense stereo effects. This release is issued with stunning sound quality from the masters. For all 60s collectors who are not familiar with this masterpiece - its a must - there are not many groups that were able to present the freewheelin live on stage feeling on their studio album!" - World In Sound.

"World In Sound presents another group that represents the late 60s, early 70s heavy psychedelic era scene in northeast Ohio, USA (the same region that Dragonwyck is from). Having won the Starshine Productions Battle of the Bands in 1970, the five-member Freeman Sound was established as the most popular of several bands (including Morly Grey), that had records released on the Starshine label. This special collection of original songs and sounds is an exciting bit of rock history that documents some of the charm, wit and depth of talent that made Freeman Sound the special local phenomenon they were. This release includes 12 great, quality tracks with bio and photos. Youll get stoned on some mind-bending vocals backed by instrumentation that includes some very intense, heavy fuzz and wah pedal guitar sounds, solid drums and a screaming organ (with flashes of famous British groups such as Spooky Tooth). Prepare to get off on cuts like the 17 minute Heavy Trip #70, the Hendrix-like Tomorrow Is Plastic and what we would venture to say is the heaviest version of Merle Travis 16 Tons ever recorded. This band broke up before they were able to make the most of their popularity. With this previously unreleased album, they may be taking up where they left off. For fans of intelligently executed psychedelic hard rock and pop with a message." - World In Sound.

"Who should have thought some incoming spawn would survive No More Invention (2008)? Yes sirs, inside the Grand Procreators consumed ashes, still half lying half standing thus was some rebel mass endowed with the urge to appear in face of the fallen stuff. It would be chemically determined as a following sacrificial revenge after Invention got lost 2 years ago in a rock located in San Pedro Ville, France. And then came rebellion appearing in its entire regained nudity, though it was given a load of Seltz water so it can endure its own terrifying blast power. Here it is -- now Maniacs & Zealots, be afraid of intending to tickle the Beast from your players! World In Sound presents Manifesto Zero, Gunslingers second atrocious little deformed baby, recorded on the infuriated November of 2009 while evil-red-eyed wolves were getting enraged in the frightened night. No doubt it has to be a relentless sonic testimony in the style of throwing Vitriol at the snobbish subcultures face and, Willynilly, youll be given a proper naughty chase and a sixfold punishment always greedy of its prey from start to finish. Rhythmically Cyclopean as overexcited as starving due to the constant hammering of its ritualistic tempo & contra-tempo gluttony, its disturbing debauchery of lysergic & contemplative elements gives besides the whole savagery thing some multipleheaded Beast aspect by leading its own sound color touch (& its obvious axis of devastation) right into the alley of a space glider under oversaturated hypnosis ; and more generally, into variable expressions & exploration areas which stand between Underground Rock Music unclassified genres & subgenres. Demented Guitar wall-of-acid-riffs, pissed off takeoffs & instrumental smashs on bewitchment mode, harmonic death traps, pulsatory frenzy & insane grooves in the likes of a vicious contortionist highway, startling surrealistic vocals sealed to a psychotic Daedalus-esque bass unfurling, and ultimately a scary statement of visceral power. The whole thing devoted to the cult of analog 4 track tape recording, the everlasting oily machine & Slingers dynamo. Manifesto Zero is nothing less than an authentic firebrand." -World In Sound

"Here is the self-confessed Slingers electric companion, a huge onset tour de force hailing from the realm of San Pedro (France) and that should cause weird effects through inventions great (golden) ass. First came Gunslingers, raising against the big bullshit, then came No More Invention, wearing a nine-acts sling of a hilarious outrage. Introducing the ultimate assault of her illegitimate three sons, also known as massacre-rock deviant inquisitors, a French deconstructionist trio who needed to abuse the artifacts of some lost rock synthesis in one total, furious and quintessential record, like an evil paradox of rock. Expect pure apotheosis of wild horror biker freakouts, acid avant-punk and trippy psych-noise with no respite from the actions breakneck speed. Gregory Raimo aka GRs incriminating unspoken yaya words and unparalleled orgiastic guitar savagery over control, spacey analog effects fulminations and feedbacks culminating with Matthieu Canaguiers hypnotic and castrationist ritual thunder bass, and Antoine Hadjioannous prophetic mad with scalp crashing down drums-machete. From the gigantic 13 minute long blowing Krauty prayer of Lighter Slinger Festival to the frightening embodiment of Nathaniel Hawthornes The Ministers Black Veil, this is some magnetizing unknown & sacred distillation. Comes with a four page booklet of awesome artistic statement in a limited digipack edition. Loud and irreverent up to hilarity, and paradoxically, largely out of any category, this freakish explosive mixture, recorded in 2007 in three days, re-pioneers the hijacking of rock landmarks. Probably based on Lady Hysterias (herself) voluntary uncontrolled intent, Gunslingers No More Invention spreads the enlightenment of catastrophic happenings and a nonsense of epic blackout scenes into electric round of fury.

Title: Hamana
Format: LP
Label: World In Sound
Country: Germany
Price: $38.00
"Hamanas debut album recorded in 1974, was issued on the local Phoenix label, Canyon Records. To most of the 60s psychedelic rock/folk fans this is almost an unknown album, original pressings seem to have disappeared, only a few copies are known in collectors hands. Bruce Hamana, a native American, is a member of the Indian Hopi Tribe and went in 1969 to college near San Francisco to live in the white mans world. Instead of traditional native American themes he felt like writing modern, revolutionary, contemporary music -- the result you hear on this album is powerful and melodic, and expresses perfectly the sunny California peace, love & freedom feeling, but also contains a social-critical message.One of these days everything is gonna change, things you take for granted will be taken away from you. The music itself is emotive with strong vocals, lots of Westcoast psychedelic guitar flashes, a bit garage feeling but also loner folk style with native American elements. The appeal of this album reminds of Quicksilver Messenger Service, The Byrds, X.I.T, Neil Young, Buffalo Springfield, Garrett Lund. Near unbelievable that on these recordings all instruments, bass, guitars, vocals and drums have been played by Hamana himself, to get overdubbed and to become finally a tasty and atmospheric stereo acoustic/electric mix." - World In Sound.
