SOLD OUT

Artist: SUNROOF!
Title: Rock Power
Format: LP
Label: Nashazphone
Country: Egypt
Price: $21.00
"Reissue of an extremely rare and essential Sunroof! CD-R released during a European tour in 2003 on Matthew Bowers own imprint, Rural Electrification Program (REP). On this LP, Bower is joined on guitar by Mick Flower (Vibracathedral Orchestra and Flower-Corsano Duo) and the result was once qualified as Sunroofs rock record and its tribute to Neil Young and AC/DC (hence the title). Rock Power is a very singular record because it documents a very short time period in the M. Bower/Sunroof! evolution; between the dream-like psychedelia of releases such as Cloudz or early Hototogisu, and the brutal sonic assault of later records such as Panzer Division Lou Reed, Spitting Gold Zebras or the more recent Skullflower outings. 500 copies." - Nashazphone.

"Matthew Bower and Mick Flower together form a position on the globe where the wires of communication intersect and web around their heads." - James Ferraro.

Title: Bliss
Format: Double CD
Label: VHF
Country: USA
Price: $14.50
"The atmosphere of this somewhat delayed yet unstoppable annual collection from long-in-the-tooth UK vibe maestro Matthew Bower and friends (who include Neil Campbell, Rosalie Bower, and maybe some other people - honestly, who can tell?) is mostly spaced and buzzing instruments and voices hovering and floating in the dense mix, all running together like some sort of alien shortwave broadcast. Disc 1 takes off from where last years Found Star Sound left us - a mix of fuzzy guitar and organ rhythms jousting with voice, bowed strings, and unidentifiable percussion in a compressed fog. Disc 2 is a headlong rush into newish territory, with analog synth vs. birdsong, childs voice vs. sawing violin, chug vs. fizz, etc. There are many tracks on both discs that have subtle (and overt) melodic and rhythmic undercurrents suggesting a fuzz/hiss-dominated alternate-universe version of say, Harmonia or Richter Band. Probably a coincidence, but very, very appealing." - VHF.

Title: Delicate Autobahn Under Construction
Format: Double CD
Label: VHF
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"The debut album release from MATTHEW BOWERs new trio, following the retirement of SKULLFLOWER and TOTAL, mines territory similar to Total, but with a more group-oriented communal trance arrangement. Taking cues from minimalist composers, Indian music and assorted folk musics, Sunroof uses guitar, violin, hand percussion and reeds to build up layer upon layer of stratospheric bliss, creating the perfect cloud for Bowers sometimes gentle, sometimes excoriating electric guitar to float on." - VHF

Artist: SUNROOF!
Title: Panzer Division Lou Reed
Format: CD
Label: VHF
Country: US
Price: $12.50
"Beneath the usual lovely psychedelic artwork on the cover of Panzer Division Lou Reed lurks SUNROOF!s most explosive and assaultive record ever. The key track here in the Sunroof! evolution is the opener "Slew Plateaus #1," with MICK FLOWER (VIBRACATHEDRAL ORCHESTRA) on guitar and JOHN MOLONEY (SUNBURNED HAND OF THE MAN) on drums. This live shot of electricity gradually ramps up from Flower and MATT BOWERs dueling guitars to the point where Moloneys drums come crashing in after about six minutes, leading to a furious crescendo that lasts for the remainder of the 19-minute track. "Slew Plateaus #2" is a lengthy collaboration with underground gadabout MATTIN, whose previous collabs with Tony Conrad, Bruce Russell, Eddie Prevost, et al. hopefully prepared him for the Bower wrecking ball delivered here. The other two cuts are absolutely blistering demolition work, which, in spite of their visceral impact, reach a state of zen-like stasis after a couple of minutes, a la the best of Bowers work with HOTOTOGISU." - VHF.

Title: Silver Bear Mist
Format: Double CD
Label: VHF
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Silver Bear Mist, SUNROOFs first release in over two years, is an epic, double-CD of inimitable buzz. Recorded during a period when guitarist MATT BOWER (SKULLFLOWER, TOTAL) was also wrtiting material for HOTOTOGISU, Silver Bear Mist diverges from previous Sunroof releases to revel in thick, billowing fuzz bombs. Includes contributions from members of VIBRACATHEDRAL ORCHESTRA and THE SKATERS." - VHF.
