LP

ANCST - Ghosts Of The Timeless Void LP (lifeforce - What has started to move can no longer be stopped: Since its foundation in 2011, ANCST have proved tireless that they are the spearhead of a new wave of hardcore infused black metal coming out of Germany. With a row of releases on renowned underground labels such as Vendetta, Alerta Antifascista, Supreme Chaos or Halo Of Flies, including two albums and an array of EPs and split releases, as well as relentless touring, ANCST has proven their motivation. They want to make a difference – and they have something to say! ANCST want to wake their listeners and put their fingers into the wounds. Thus, “ghosts of the timeless void” has to sound as violent and disillusioning as it does. The band's third album is a mirror of its surroundings and time and an elegy to a world on the verge of decline. While sporting both, a hardcore and a metal socialization, the self proclaimed collective from Berlin perfectly combines fierce melodic black metal and brutal but yet metallic hardcore crust with angry and critical social political lyrics. The unconditional implementation of their convictions, their sound and the emphasized DIY approach makes ANCST and “ghosts of the timesless void” seem so unique and strong.) 16.00

THE ASTRONAUTS - It's All Done By Mirrors LP (la via - It's All Done By Mirrors LP The Astronauts second album It’s All Done By Mirrors was originally released by All the Madmen in 1983 and finally gets reissued on vinyl for the first time. Original copies are now really sought after and on a lot of people's wants lists due to both its scarcity and its status among outsider art, free music and weirdly enough peace punk fans. It’s All Done by Mirrors is a stunning collection of explosive pop songs and traditional folk ballads and considered to be the pinnacle of the Astronauts recorded output. It’s easy to hear and see why. Musically it’s tighter and more focused than on the debut album Peter Pan Hits the Suburbs and lyrically it’s on another level. From Mark Astronaut's lyrical pen comes a woman dreaming of the Dorset coast whilst writing to her former lover (Seagull Mania); or the man on the street and his wife living out the final day before nuclear destruction (Typically English Day). Mark Astronaut really should been seen in the same light as Ray Davies from the Kinks with his observations of a time long gone. Three of the tracks feature legendary sax player Lol Coxhill. As with all Astronauts releases - totally under rated yet totally essential.) 16.00

BRETT NAUCKE - the mansion LP (edition megs - If previous releases for Nihilist, Arbor and his own Catholic Tapes established Chicago's Brett Naucke as one of the more accomplished practitioners in the American synth underground, "Seed", his debut LP for Spectrum Spools, is a veritable career apex, brimming with sonic ingenuity, detail, and mastery over both instrument and musical form. It is hard to fathom due to the sheer diversity of sound and affectations of the eight individual pieces on the album, but "Seed" was recorded - almost impossibly - with the same synth patch, slightly modified for the unveiling of each track. This testifies to the intensity of Naucke's macroscopic conceptual vision for "Seed". Each track's complex arc points towards a mind rooted in academic electronic processes, keenly trying to surprise and disarm by prying open new textures, rhythms and structures. Over the course of this album, Naucke has come as close as any to making the machines he has used sprout from the same soil as the organic landscapes he so perfectly renders on this album.) 18.00

CHRISTIAN ZANESI -Grand Bruit & Stop! L'horizon LP (editions mego - Includes download, embossed cover artwork, incl. printed inner sleeve - The great mobile sound bodies have an ordinary yet amazing ability to place the listener-traveller within, as if he or she was inside a giant double bass, in this case a train stroked by a double bow: the rails and the air. In 1991, I explored this phenomenon during my daily commute from the studio to my home. I used only a 21 minutes recording and treated it as a single sound object. I then processed and enhanced it as a photographer would have done, immersing it in successive 'baths'. The title I chose for this singular form was Grand Bruit.) 20.00

FRANCOIS BAYLE - Tremblement De Terre Très Doux & Toupie Dans Le Ciel LP (edition megs - he familiar generates the strange.
These rolls, these hums, these sudden rushes; this song, these peaceful circlings; these sudden outbursts, these returns to quiescence – what do they remind us of?
This piece’s trajectory could also be a representation of the dramatic unfolding of a day - of a life - from sunrise (climate 1) to night-time (landscape 4) via restless encounters, transitions (1 to 3) that announce the drama climaxing in landscape 3, before reaching its denouement in climate 4… A whole concrete ‚story’. The subterranean properties inherent to listening gently shift our ideas… ) 20.00

HAMAD KALKABA & HIS GOLDEN SOUNDS - s/t DLP (analog africa - "Hamad Kalkaba and His Golden Sounds 1974 - 1975" I remember the day clearly. I was searching for treasures in a record shop in Yaoundé, the Capital city of Cameroon, when suddenly I came across a 7-inch record with a picture of a young man wearing a traditional hat and bearing the marks of several imposing vertical scars on the side of his face, carved when he was just a boy as a reminder of his heritage in the Musgum tribe of the northern part of the country.) 25.00

MAXIUMUM EFFORT - Tears of Rage LP (problem solved - Debut LP from this St. Louis punk band... these guys have a lot in common with the really incredible crop of recent KC bands like Shaved Women, Sucked Dry, and maybe even Dark Ages. Like those bands, they have a sound that is unclassifiable. It's noisy, passionate, catchy, and definitely punk, but it's clear Maximum Effort are not simply aiming to do a solid take on an established style. That said, the closest stylistic comparison I can think of is Everything Falls Apart-era Husker Du... few other bands have this potent a combination of blistering tempos and catchy hooks. Also has some great DIY packaging, including hand-printed jackets and a very interesting manifesto / lyric booklet. LPs are packed in s ilk screened manila enevelope) 15.00

THE MEN - drift LP (sacred bones - Drift is the seventh full-length by NYC rock polymaths The Men, and it marks their 10th anniversary as a band. The Men's last album, the self-released Devil Music, was the sound of a band who had been through hell hitting reset and looking to their roots to rediscover themselves. On Drift, The Men return to their longtime label Sacred Bones Records and explore the openness that Devil Music helped them find. The immediately evident result of that exploration is the experimental quality of much of the material on Drift. Songwriters Mark Perro and Nick Chiericozzi chase their muses down a few dozen thrilling rabbit-holes over the course of the album’s nine tracks. The songs on Drift veer in a number of directions, but notably, almost none of them feature a prominent electric guitar. The lone exception, “Killed Someone,” is a rowdy riff-rocker, worthy of the finest moments of the band’s now-classic Leave Home and Open Your Heart albums. The rest of the album drives down stranger highways. “Secret Light” is an improvisation based on an old piano riff of Perro’s. “Maybe I’m Crazy” is a synth-driven dancefloor stomper for long after last call. “Rose on Top of the World” and “When I Held You in My Arms” are paisley-hued, psyched-out jams with big, beating hearts. ) 18.00

MOANING - s/t LP (sub pop - LOSER EDITION Moaning is a band defined by its duality. The abrasive post-punk trio comprised of LA DIY veterans, Sean Solomon, Pascal Stevenson, and Andrew MacKelvie, began nearly a decade after the three started playing music together. Their impassioned debut album comes born out of the member's experiences with love and distress, creating a sound uniquely dark and sincere. Although the band is just breaking out of their infancy, Moaning's sleek and cavernous tone emphasizes the turmoil of the era they were born into. One where the endless possibility for art and creation is met with the fear and doubt of an uncertain future. Solomon, Stevenson, and MacKelvie initially met as teenagers while growing up in the San Fernando Valley, and immediately developed a kinship through Los Angeles's local music scene. The three began regularly frequenting DIY institutions like The Smell and Pehrspace, eventually selling out dozens of their own shows at both venues with their first few bands. Moaning's conception came when Solomon sent Stevenson and MacKelvie the first demo for "Don't Go," setting the tone for the impulsive songwriting that would follow. The three fleshed out Solomon's primitive recordings, adding in MacKelvie's heavy syncopated drumming, and Stevenson's melodic driving bass and synth parts, capturing each member's personality in their sparse and fuzzed out tracks. Like many of their previous collaborative projects, Moaning forces pain up against pleasure, using the complexity of personal heart break to inform the band's conflicted sound.) 18.00

NEGATIVE SPACE - Gestalt LP (drunken - The Members got it right when they said theirs was the sound of the suburbs. So what’s the sound of the city? Fraught. Chaotic. Contradictory. So busy and frantic that you really notice the space when things get quiet – not that this happens too much. Negative Space cover those bases, making a furiously engaging racket that you’d recognise as ‘post-punk’ – and yeah, that feels like a pretty redundant phrase in 2017, but luckily ‘redundant’ is not an adjective you could throw at this lot. They make righteous noise from anger and poetry from confusion, and if that sounds too prissy for you then maybe it’s time to reassess your priorities. Gestalt isn’t just an LP though. It’s a statement; an investigation; a baring of the soul in both the frankest and most oblique terms possible. Gender dysphoria and shitty working conditions are among the prescient topics investigated, and they all comes fused with a twanging, discordant, pulsating set of hooks that recall minimalist forefathers like Wire and a peppier Gang of Four while simultaneously feeling wonderfully, urgently NOW.  -  Will Fitzpatrick. FFO: Wire, Uranium Club, Gang Of Four, Total Control) 15.00

PADKAROSDA - Tétova Lelkek LP (static age - Budapest spikeys decorating their raw punk aesthetic with a good dose of darkness in the Eastern European tradition of bands like Tozibabe, Siekiera and everyone else Killing Joke rubbed off on when they used to tour behind the Iron Curtain. Heavy Tip on Sleeve, oversized card and huge insert.) 13.00

PHANTOM WINTER - Into Dark Science LP (golden antenna - On Into Dark Science Phantom Winter return with more brute force than ever. After CVLT (2015) and Sundown Pleasures (2016) they now follow up. With their third full-length Phantom Winter found a new language to express extreme heavyness where other bands from the same genre already resigned. They channel depression, anger and severity on an authentic manner that goes it`s own way regarding vehemence.  The record contains six songs about your inner monsters, retaliating  ogres and the omnipresence of darkness that we all carry within us. “It is a journey through the dark worlds of authors Sylvia Plath and Mary Shelley. Into Dark Science is a way to accept and channel my inner demons to create something worthwhile and productive” says Andreas Schmittfull who is the mind of Phantom Winter. Six chapters who tell a story of a being who lives in a world which keeps most people paralysed. Emotional brutalness combined with a gigantic and back-breaking mix  of low-tuned atmosphere and riff-orientated brutality in symbiosis with pounding and sometimes cyclic drumming which takes the audience  further into a maelstrom. Just now this gloominess reflects in the arcane and mysterious design by Hummel Grafik who is once again responsible for the artwork. ) 20.00

RAINFOREST SPIRITUAL ENSLAVEMENT - Ambient Black Magic DLP + 10" (hospital - back in stock - New album from Dominick Fernow’s most intriguing alias with "Sound on Sound” processing by Silent Servant and a remix from Substance (Chain Reaction). A huge recommendation if you're into Vainqueur, Huerco S, Talk Talk, Carl Craig, Rhythm & Sound… Following a still-ongoing series of reissues of the earliest, previously tape-only releases from Dominick Fernow’s Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement, this long-in-the-making new album proper is an epic 80 minute set featuring additional production from Silent Servant, a remix from Substance and some of the deadliest subs we've heard in an age. It’s by far the most ambitious and far-reaching Rainforest dispatch, taking that artificial, tropical humidity as a starting point before heading deep into a kind of textured ambience, moving away from the extreme saturation of those early cassettes and the industrial environmentalism of his previous album Green Graves and instead creaiting a kind of 'Fear Dub’ - as the label call it - which is essentially the perfect encapsulation of the deep sense of paranoia contained within.) 35.00

SHAME - songs of praise LP (dead oceans - back in stock - Shame thrives on confrontation. Whether it be the seething intensity crackling throughout debut LP Songs of Praise or the adrenaline-pumping chaos that unfolds at Shame’s shows, it’s all fueled by feeling. NPR’s Bob Boilen noted, “Of the 70 bands I saw at this year’s SXSW, the band Shame seemed to mean what they played more than any other.“ Comprised of vocalist Charlie Steen, guitarists Sean Coyle-Smith and Eddie Green, bassist John Finerty, and drummer Charlie Forbes, the London-based five-piece began as school boys. From the outset, Shame built the band up from a foundation of DIY ethos while citing The Fall and Wire among its biggest musical influences. Utilizing both the grit and sincerity of that musical background, Shame carved out a niche in the South London music scene and then barreled fearlessly into the angular, thrashing post-punk that would go on to make up Songs of Praise, their Dead Oceans debut. From “Gold Hole,” a tongue-in-cheek takedown of rock narcissism, to lead single “Concrete” detailing the overwhelming moment of realizing a relationship is doomed, to the frustrated “Tasteless” taking aim at the monotony of people droning through their day-to-day, Songs of Praise never pauses to catch its breath.) 19.00

SUUNS - felt LP (colored) (secretly canadian - "This record is definitely looser than our last one [2016's Hold/Still]. It's not as clinical. There's more swagger." says singer/guitarist Ben Shemie about "Felt", the latest album by SUUNS. You can hear this freedom flowing through the 11 tracks on the album. It's both a continuation and rebirth, the Montreal quartet returning to beloved local facility Breakglass Studios (where they cut their first two albums [Zeroes QC and Images Du Futur] with Jace Lasek of The Besnard Lakes) but this time recording themselves at their own pace, over five fertile sessions spanning several months. A simultaneous stretching out and honing in, mixed to audiophile perfection by St Vincent producer John Congleton (helmer of Hold/Still), who flew up especially from Dallas to deploy his award-winning skills in situ. "Felt" lead single "Watch You, Watch Me" showcases an organic/synthetic rush that builds and builds atop drummer Liam O'Neill's elevatory rhythm. O'Neill exclaims, "It was different and exciting. In the past, there was a more concerted effort on my part to drum in a controlled and genre-specific way. Self-consciously approaching things stylistically. Us doing it ourselves, that process was like a very receptive, limitless workshop to just try out ideas." Complementing O'Neill are the ecstatic, Harmonia-meets-Game Boy patterns unleashed by electronics mastermind Max Henry. Eschewing presets, Henry devised fresh sounds for each song on "Felt" while also becoming a default musical director, orchestrating patches and oscillations. Quietly enthusing about "freaky post-techno" and Frank Ocean's use of space, he's among your more modest studio desk jockeys: "Yeah, I sat in the control room while the others played - hitting 'record' and 'stop'. It also gave me the flexibility to move parts around and play with effects. I do have a sweet tooth for pop music.“) 19.00

7“

ECSTASY - same 7“ (digital regress - Oakland's ECSTASY (members of TONY MOLINA band, JUMP OFF A BUILDING) display a strong showing on their first release, offering jagged harmonics-laced hardcore which seamlessly transition from one song into the next. These 5 songs clocking in at just under 7 minutes, berate wealthy-bay-area-transplants aiming to gain social capitol on their parents dime. Pressing of 500 housed in fold-over covers risographed by Irrelevant Press in Oakland.) 7.00


LP

BEAUTIFUL JUNKYARDS - The Invisible World of Beautify Junkyards LP (ghostbox - Lisbon’s Beautify Junkyards effortlessly blend their love of English Acid Folk and Brazilian Tropicalia in a collection of songs that conjure up a warm and verdant faerie world. Delicate acoustic guitars evoke an autumnal England suffused with Iberian heat by other-worldly voices; the ethereal lilt of João Branco Kyron and the warm languor of Rita Vian. The production is tempered with a haunted electronic palette that anchors the band squarely in the world of Ghost Box. Their sound is further enhanced by newest member Helena Espvall ( formerly of Espers) on guitar and cello. With João Moreira on acoustic guitar and synth, Sergue Ra on bass and Antonio Watts on drums they are altogether an astonishingly talented group of people.) 21.00

BLATTARIA - s/t LP (fallen empire - Frenzied and disorienting black metal, frantically striving for nihility.) 20.00

BRIGID MAE POWER - The Two Worlds LP (tompkins square BACK IN STOCK!!!  Received a 7.4 rating from Pitchfork.  Ireland's BRIGID MAE POWER returns with a new album. The sadly topical first single, "Don't Shut Me Up (Politely)," seems to express what's on the minds of many women right now. Tompkins Square's Josh Rosenthal noted on social media, "I don't usually have the opportunity to say something political about the music I put out, but in the case of Brigid Mae Power's new single, 'Don't Shut Me Up (Politely),' I think this song may resonate with any woman who's been gaslit, mansplained to, paid less, bullied, sexually harassed by a C-List celebrity or famous movie producer, had her birth control systematically taken away, or told she had to go to another country or across state lines to get an abortion." The Two Worlds.   Power's self-titled debut, released on Tompkins Square in 2016, received wide praise from Uncut (9/10, "Masterpiece"), MOJO (4 stars), The Guardian (4 stars), Irish Times (4 stars) and was featured on NPR World Cafe, as well as several BBC programs. The Two Worlds' was produced by PETER BRODERICK and recorded at Analogue Catalogue in County Down, Ireland. .) 18.00

BRUTE MINOU - s/t LP (specific - Beautiful female fronted pop punk with french vocals) 15.00

CINDY LEE - Act Of Tenderness LP (w25t - Cindy Lee is the diva alter-ego of singer / guitarist / drag queen Patrick Flegel, the one-time captain of heralded Canadian experimental guitar pop act, Women. In Flegel’s working on / as Cindy Lee exclusively over recent years, their songwriting makes a move toward high atmospherics, often achieving a mysterious sweetness rooted equally in beauty and ache. As Cindy Lee’s first long-form statement, Act Of Tenderness makes use of antipodal themes to create a living sound: static with grace, distortion and sugar, all masterfully arranged with crooked nods toward pop classicism. The layered vocal on “Power And Possession” creates a palpable haunt, bringing historical girl-group lament to choir-esque heights. The feedback shriek and industrial grind of “Bonsai Garden” provides near-operatic damage, yet never stumbles into the irrevocably grave. These snowy pieces give the album a decidedly cinematic feel, albeit one bent more towards Eraserhead. Originally released in a scant private edition in 2015, Superior Viaduct’s imprint W.25TH is pleased to give Act Of Tenderness its deserving wide release.) 18.00

DAILEY - Is This Love? LP (federal green - ARNOLD GLENN DAILEY arrived in Washington, DC by way of Norfolk, VA, founding his first vocal group when he was 19. From there, he learned how to play the guitar, and when 1980s DC struggled with a boom in the illegal drug trade, Dailey turned to his music as therapy—teaching himself how to play nearly every other type of instrument. When it came time to develop his own album, Is This Love?, he pulled from his multi-instrumentalist background and built most of the tracks by simply overdubbing himself. It’s an engrossing synth-filled journey into the soul of the man who meticulously designed a foundation of love and inspiration to drown out the problems surrounding him. Anyone with an appreciation for positive energy, uplifting modern soul, or love vibes, will more than likely discover that this LP fills a hole in their heart they didn’t even know was there. The title track will certainly satisfy any daytime DJ need, and “Keep The Faith” is ready-made for late night playlists..) 23.00

GREG KOWALSKY - L'orange, L'orange LP (mexican summer - What does the sun sound like? L’Orange, L’Orange, GREGG KOWALSKY's first solo album in eight years, might have the answer. Its vivid music—sourced from analog synths and mixed on a laptop—arrives in rays of sound that shine skyward. There are many moods in each track, but the overarching aura is one of brightness and optimism. Hence the album title, which nods toward the radiant hue of our life-sustaining star. That’s the color I started to hear when I mixed these tracks,” Kowalsky says. “Mixing when it’s sunny out every day affects you.” Raised in Miami, Kowalsky now lives in Los Angeles, and the luminous ambience of L’Orange, L’Orange reflects the warmth of those coastal cities. Blue skies, sun-baked shores, and drifting tides echo throughout the album, from the sparkling ripples of “Tuned to Monochrome,” to the rising rhythm of “Pattern Haze,” to the sandy layers of “Ritual Del Croix.” It’s a return to basics for Kowalsky after years spent on complex sound installations. The result is a work whose optimism and brightness actually surprised Kowalsky. “I made a blissful record, and that’s not usually what I do,” he admits. “Just making it was meditative.” Listening is a meditative experience too, but the sunshine of L’Orange, L’Orange also demands attention, filled with moments that surprise, confound, and provoke. For Gregg Kowalsky, music can be as powerful as the sun, and the shiny atmospheres he has created on his new album will both warm your mood and enlighten your brain.) 21.00

INSECT ARK - Marrow Hymns LP (profound lore - Combining elements of horror-film soundtracks, psychedelic doom, and atmospheric noise, NYC / Portland-based instrumental duo Insect Ark presents their newest record, Marrow Hymns. Comprised of Dana Schechter (bass, lap steel guitar, synthesizers) and Ashley Spungin (drums, synthesizers), Insect Ark’s intensely visual music weaves interludes of fragile beauty with crushing passages of swirling doom, spinning like a backwards fever dream. This album is a wordless song, a hypnotic voice that screams and whispers from a place deep in the furrows, from the bones, from the blood. Defying easy categorization, their uncommon sound is in part the amalgamation of these two women’s passions: Schechter’s sinister bass lines and unconventional use of lap steel guitar (and her complete omission of electric guitar), and Spungin’s lucid, exacting drumming and synth work with her own hand-built analog noise pedals (Ormus Electronics). With the two halves of the band residing on opposite coasts, the album was largely skeletal in form upon commencement of recording. Overdubs and further writing / arrangements were done after Spungin’s return to Portland in the isolation of Schechter’s home studio. The sense of distance and vast emptiness remained intact in the songs, built out over many long nights. These songs of displacement, loss, and isolation are personal journals of that time period, as both members found themselves simultaneously experiencing existential crises. However, the album also tells a story of strength and determination, made from the marrow of these two women, a song for all things that struggle to survive.) 22.00

ILSA - Corpse Fortress LP (relapse - Horror-obsessed, underground cult ILSA weave together tales of depravity and devil worship on their Relapse debut Corpse Fortress.Recorded by Kevin Bernsten (Full of Hell, Code Orange, Magrudergrind, Integrity) in Baltimore, MD at Developing Nations, Corpse Fortress is nine tracks forged in filth with dense layers of emotionally draining sludge, murky, primordial doom and feedback-laden, crusty death metal. Corpse Fortress is easily the rawest, most abhorrent and nasty album in ILSA’s 10-year career and the perfect soundtrack for the initiated miscreants of this rapidly dying orb.) 22.00

IRON REAGAN / GATECREEPER - split LP (relapse - East Coast crossover titans IRON REAGAN and rising Sonoran death metallers GATECREEPER unite for a split recording of cranium crushing proportions.  Across 8 new tracks of auditory and lyrical venom, both bands showcase why they're two of the most talked about groups in extreme metal today!  Mixed by Kurt Ballou at Godcity Studios. ) 22.00

JASSA - Incarnation Of The Higher Gnosis LP (fallen empire - Fog and stillness; the True God resides in The Abyss, where there is no past and no future. Pressed on brown with blue splatter vinyl.) 20.00

JULIA REIDY - All Is Ablaze LP (fedding tube - "Recently we touched base with the New Zealand ex-pat guitarist DEAN ROBERTS. He's living in Berlin these days, teaching, playing and staying out late. When asked if there were any interesting, unheralded players we should know about he immediately mentioned JULIA REIDY. Julia is also a guitarist currently based in Berlin, but the city from which she's apart is Sydney, NSW. While there she was embroiled in the Australian improv scene, and played with the likes of Jon Rose et al. She was focused exclusively on electric guitar back in those days. Since relocating to Europe she has split her concentrations between electric and acoustic, playing in two duos—TENNIS OF ALL KINDS (with bassist Adam Pultz Melbye) and PALES (with percussionist Samuel Hall)—among other settings. On All Is Ablaze Ms. Reidy plays both an acoustic 12 string and an electric, both of which sound unusually raw and exciting in her hands. Each side of the record consists of a single piece, the A is 'All Is Ablaze,' the flip, 'Thatched Steel & Rain.' In his notes, Dean writes about the beautiful contrasts of the music's textures, drawing apt comparisons to everyone from Robbie Basho to Tom Cora. As these namechecks might suggest, Julia's first LP embraces a nearly unknowable field of sonic detailing. Her technique can sound precise and smudgy at almost the same moment. The intent of her journey seeming to shift with her breathing patterns. There is an organic depth and weight to the music here, displaying an exceptionally wide breadth of influence, knowledge, chops and imagination. We would like to thank Mr. Roberts for introducing us to the music of Julia Reidy. You will soon be doing the same."—Byron Coley, 2017 Edition of 300.) 23.00

THE LIMINANAS - Shadow People LP + CD (beacuse music - "What was old is new again"... The old adage is so tired that nobody takes its proper measure: all people hear is the word "old", when the important one is "new". Making new things out of old things is an act of alchemy. The proof is in THE LIMINANAS' fifth album—no rest for the wicked of Perpignan—which is blown right open here and there by a few very contemporary guests. After the opener, "Ouverture," with its almost surf-like guitars, comes "Le Premier Jour," where LIONEL LIMINANA talks about his rock baptism with the punks, the mods, the skinheads, and the Lambrettas of his youth in the South of France. What comes just after is the seismic shock of "Istanbul Is Sleepy"—the Imprimatur of ANTON NEWCOMBE of THE BRIAN JONESTOWN MASSACRE is simply enormous. Then comes EMMANUELLE SEIGNER's super sexy tornado on the title track; and "Dimanche" follows, with BERTRAND BELIN. Lionel sees him as a "French Nick Cave who writes songs that resemble films." "The Gift" features PETER HOOK who scrapes his bass guitar again here; obviously a song reminiscent of an early period New Order. Finally, the Limiñanas on their own send out an instrumental cavalcade with a furious beat, like a kraut Morricone, "Motorizzati Marie" followed by "Pink Flamingos," introduced with psych rock pads played backwards forming a vaporous song bathed in acoustic arpeggios. A respite in the album... before the fuzz and the abyssal bass of "Trois Bancs" violently shakes the ghost of Gainsbourg: an electroshock in talk over. And to close the scene, a love message: "De La Part Des Copains"; its organ, its tambourine, its quaver, and its brass place it in the classic soundtrack category revered by the band. An ideal conclusion for this incredible, faultless record. The rock n' roll epiphany thus continues. It belongs to those who will listen—full blast—to Shadow People and will doubtless feel the urge to plug a guitar into an amp. A valve amp, of course.) 21.00

MILLARD & DYCE - S/t (aka Open) LP (void - MILLARD & DYCE was a folk-rock band formed in the 1970s, and based in Baltimore. They toured on the East Coast for several years and released just the one album via custom vinyl purveyors Century/Kaymar in 1973, which has since become a rare collector's item, recently selling in excess of $ 400. First time reissued on vinyl.  "...Impressive, successful mix of electric and acoustic contemporary folk blues, with three guitars and bass. The typical private press weakness in singing and playing is missing; instead we get earthy, convin­cing vocals delivering no-bullshit tunes on Native Americans, the environment and society, mixed with more private love songs. A definite Tim Hardin influence can be heard, and as often it’s an advantage, especially since the emotional commitment of Millard & Dyce is so very real. A musical equivalent of those great old 70s movies like “The Scarecrow” or “Five Easy Pieces”; skillfully spun tales from the American underbelly with no desire to compromise. Fenner, Leland & O’Brien is a possible comparison, and this is at least as good."—Patrick Lundborg (RIP), Acid Archives) 20.00

MORGEN - s/t LP (replica - One of the greatest heavy psych albums ever made in the USA, this '69 mindblower has it all: trippy songs, spacey production, ace musicianship, at times a punky attitude (somewhat ahead of its time) and jaw-dropping guitar scorching. "Welcome To The Void!“.) 20.00

NAT BIRCHALL - Cosmic Language LP (jazzman - Nat Birchall charts new paths toward spiritual communion, connecting jazz with classical Indian influences guided by the wistful flow of the harmonium. Cosmic Language sees the UK-based saxophonist, composer and arranger return to Jazzman Records with a cross-cultural approach: an exploration of the parallel musical paths of jazz and Indian ragas. Here he takes influence from spiritual jazz forebears such as Alice Coltrane and Yusef Lateef and introduces the Indian harmonium to his band, where it takes the place of the piano. Making new connections to realise his transcendental ambitions, it's a logical next step in making music as spiritual cleanser. The idea for the album was spawned from a one-off performance at a meditation centre, the Maharishi Golden Dome in West Lancashire. Seeking to bring a band set-up that was fitting to the quiet-minded setting, Birchall brought the harmonium with him. A small pump organ, it's an instrument he'd been in possession of for many years but hadn't previously used in his music. Building on the spiritual context of that show, and the associations of that instrument, it led naturally to the musical approach undertaken on the album.
 Both the album and the show which preceded it were recorded with the same tight-knit group of players which have featured on Birchall's previous albums. All members of the group are part of the same like minded circle of Manchester-oriented jazz musicians, sharing stages and acquaintances with the likes of Matthew Halsall (a longtime collaborator with Birchall) and GoGo Penguin. Birchall has always channeled wide-ranging ideas into music that's simple to understand, and this album is no exception.) 27.00

PAT AMENT - Songs LP (grapefruit - PAT AMENT - In 1971, at the age of 25, Pat Ament self-released his debut album, Songs By Pat Ament, in a very limited run for friends and local shops. The album is sparse and moody, conjuring a space not unlike the one that Songs Of Leonard Cohen occupies, featuring Ament on Wurlitzer with a jazz drummer and a guitarist alternating between acoustic and electric. It’s dark and at times forlorn, with meditations on yearning and loss and love. It’s ideal long-night-of-the-soul music. The lyricism evokes Dylan, Cohen, Tim Hardin and Bill Fay. When he released Songs, Ament was already a world renowned mountain climber, and he became famous for pioneering ’60s and ’70s ascents in Colorado and Yosemite. He wrote poetic books and essays on climbing, including biographies of legendary climbers Royal Robbins and John Gill. Through the years he’s balanced multiple simultaneous careers as artist, photographer, filmmaker, chess master, karate black belt, lecturer, teacher, and, yes, singer-songwriter. Pat Ament’s musical mastery was clear right out of the gate but it was only one of his many interests. Perhaps if he hadn’t been moved to pursue life’s other tempting summits and focused solely on music, he’d be as well known for his songs as for his climbing. Grapefruit is extremely proud to reissue this rare and virtually unknown singer-songwriter masterpiece, sourced from original sources and under Ament’s supervision, with original artwork and deluxe Stoughton tip-on jacket. The record also comes with a bonus career retrospective CD entitled Time Moved On of additional songs hand-picked by the artist.) 21.00

SARAH LOUISE - Field Guide LP (scissor tail - This is a vinyl reissue of the quickly sold-out cassette by North Carolina based 12-string guitarist and multi instrumentalist Sarah Louise. Field Guide is her first solo record before releasing a solo record on VDSQ and her debut duo album with Sally Anne Morgan (Black Twig Pickers) as House And Land on Thrill Jockey earlier this year.  “When needed, her fingers move quickly on Field Guide, picking up the pace of the wordless conversation, then slow to a moody pace just the same. Lush, rural landscapes are brought to mind. So is happiness.” —Tiny Mix Tapes  “Sarah Henson learned to play guitar and banjo at the foot of the black mountains in North Carolina. That’s how the press text I’ve found, starts. Under the name Sarah Louise, she released two beautiful folk albums and especially her latest release Field Guide is first and foremost a great fingerstyle, solo guitar album. Her music is definitely colored by the land and the nature that surrounds her (at least that’s what I know about Asheville, NC and the Blue Ridge Mountains). I imagine a creek that tumbles down the hills, glistening in the sun. That’s what her guitar playing sounds like. That’s probably why she named it Field Guide.” —Dying For Bad Music) 20.00

SIMPLY SAUCER - Cyborgs Revisited DLP (in the red - Simply Saucer’s Cyborgs Revisited is an explosive time capsule from one of the great Canadian cult rock ‘n’ roll groups. Formed in Hamilton, Ontario, these sci-fried proto-punks created a sound fusing Hawkwind, The Kinks, Pink Fairies, Syd Barrett-era Pink Floyd, and the omnipresent Velvet Underground. Originally recorded from 1974-1975, the album became a critically revered classic when it was finally unearthed in 1989 by Mole Records. Now, In The Red is proud to release the definitive, remastered double album edition featuring new liner notes by band biographer Jesse Locke, unseen images, and the complete live recordings available as a second album for the first time ever. As a means to escape his oppressive experiences while living in a practice space surrounded by biker gangs, singer and fretboard-shredding guitarist Edgar Breau wrote a set of songs filled with dystopian visions of the future, conjuring metalloid thugs, Eva Braun’s cyanide love affair, and “dancing the mutation.” With nimble-fingered bassist Kevin Christoff, clatterwauling drummer Neil DeMerchant, and electronic cosmonaut John “Ping Romany” LaPlante (Breau’s foster brother and answer to Pere Ubu’s Allen Ravenstine), his lyrics were launched into a sonic supernova. Their first recording session took place in the basement of brothers Bob and future superstar producer Daniel Lanois and was initially intended as a demo. Naturally, interest was non-existent for the sneering six-song set. It’s shocking how anyone could have overlooked “Bullet Proof Nothing,” an undeniably catchy VU-swiping anthem for the used, abused, and confused.) 25.00

THE AND BAND - outhern LP (spacecase - THE AND BAND was the continuation of Wellington, New Zealand’s late ‘70s DIY pioneers THE SPIES, who received a posthumous release (The Battle of Bosworth Terrace) on Siltbreeze in 2014. Renamed The And Band after moving to Christchurch, the group wound down sometime around 1982, but not before influencing local musicians and releasing an incredibly rare split 7” EP (with the Perfect Strangers) and this LP—originally available on cassette only. Outhern features GEORGE D. HENDERSON, who would later go on to form the PUDDLE (Flying Nun), and should appeal to fans of early Red Krayola and The Godz.) 20.00

TRIAL BY FIRE - 1982 LP (alonas dream - When Chicago punk legends STRIKE UNDER broke up in 1981, three of the four members went on to form TRIAL BY FIRE. They were one of the first Chicago bands to play thrash style hardcore and quickly became scene favorites, especially among the younger all ages set. Far from being a by-the-numbers hardcore group, Trial By Fireʼs sound bore a heavy Stranglers and post-punk influence as well. They created a unique repertoire which sits alongside the best of the Effigies, Strike Under and Naked Raygun. In fact, when bassist / vocalist PIERRE KEZDY later joined Naked Raygun, he brought along their classic “Rocks Of Sweden” with him. This album was recorded in 1982 by studio great TIMOTHY POWELL (Effigies, Strike Under, Naked Raygun, Da!) in a warehouse adjacent to the famed birthplace of House music, The Warehouse! These tracks represent a moment when underground music was brave, adventurous and flourishing in the rundown streets of early '80s Chicago. The songs were transferred from the original master tapes by Powell himself and still sound incredibly fresh and relevant in 2017. Includes full color insert with rare photos and detailed liner notes.) 17.00

WETWARE - Automatic Drawing LP (dais - New York City has had a long history of dance music fused with confrontational performance. Whether it came from within the late 70’s No Wave canon projected through venues like the Mudd Club or the downtown avant-garde galleries such as The Kitchen, the feeling that influences and infects Brooklyn-based duo WETWARE's overall being as a cohesive and confrontational unit is as much enigmatic as it is familiar. Formed in 2015, Wetware eased into its performative role with their live shows around their home base of Brooklyn, NY. Vocalist ROXY FARMAN, who’s familiar voice was last heard on DREW MCDOWALL's Unnatural Channel album, stole audience’s attention immediately, using her body in tandem with her voice as a weaponized vehicle for the band’s anxiety filled performance. MATTHEW MORANDI cut his teeth in the electronic music world through his solo tech-industrial project JAHILIYYA FIELDS and partner to INHALANTS, the techno collaboration of Morandi and Max Ravitz (Patricia). The synergy that’s developed between Farman and Morandi has been explosive. Wetware’s live antics and behavior has caused alarm amongst their local audiences, making Wetware the group to “not be missed” on any particular bill that they are allowed to take part in. Given Wetware’s penchant for endurance, as displayed by their 3 hour long production at Koenig & Clinton Gallery in the Summer of 2017, one would expect the usual restlessness on Wetware’s debut full length. All of the apprehension and unease in Wetware seems to have been channeled into a string of cohesive electronic statements found on songs “Frequent Dreamlands” and “Ode to Joe.” Industrial dance rhythms bounce around Farman’s poetic stance on “Where Ever You Were,” causing flashbacks of an early '80s dystopia that jumps around a confusing, uncomfortable backdrop. Interspliced with modular electronic instrumentals like the album’s opener “Pantomime,” Wetware’s devastating portrait is that of a society in peril.) 22.00

THIS KIND OF PUNISHMENT - s/t LP (superior - In the fertile terrain of New Zealand’s 1980s post-punk scene, few figures loom as large as the Jefferies brothers. Graeme Jefferies and Peter Jefferies—the primary forces behind This Kind Of Punishment—wrote some of the best music to come out on Flying Nun, Xpressway or elsewhere. A dizzying mix of pastoral ballads and DIY experimentation, TKP’s songwriting was at once classic and acutely raw. On their self-titled debut, the Jefferies brothers and Chris Matthews eschew the punk-informed modes of their contemporaries for a sound that is decidedly more deliberate / intimate. Rooted in a marriage between simplistic, classically-influenced piano, alternating guitar chime and sparse, subtle violin drone, This Kind Of Punishment is a contemplative, inventive collection of ideas corralled via economic 4-track recordings, minimal instrumentation and an austere performance style entirely of the Jefferies’ own making. Songs like “After The Fact,” “In View Of The Circumstances” and “Two Minutes Drowning” boast a living quality whereby the listener can act as bystander to these moments of creation—a trait that the band would expand upon throughout the course of their brief tenure. First-time vinyl reissue since its initial release in 1983.) 21.00

SCUMRAID - control LP (iron lung - 17 tracks of pure D-Beat noise punk insanity culled from the ridiculously limited west coast tour tape, the Out of Order ep and the Rip UP ep collected on to one perfect platter, resequenced, remixed and remastered with new artwork. This is how Scumraid should have been presented in the first place, on a proper LP. 350 copies on black, housed in a tipon style jacket stuffed with a lyric insert and full download code.

SECT MARK - worship LP (iron lung - "A new breed of maniacal Italian hardcore. Short, drippy, seething and nasty as hell. The fuzz fucked intro of last song, side A ("Scouts" -ed.) had me shermed up and ready to bust through a brick wall. As a whole 'Worship' brings to mind a broken pugilist pissing in an exhaust stained fountain and then fighting the cops with knuckles full of busted teeth. Not sure why, but that is the image this music evokes. It's ugly, nihilistic and mean. I like that. I hate everything else. For fans of S.H.I.T., Deformity and Warthog."—MK. 350 on black vinyl housed in a heavy reverse board jacket with insert and download code included. Recorded in Rome. Art by Francesco Goats..) 18.00

SERPENT COLUMN - Ornuthi Thalassa LP (fallen empire - “Across the album’s six songs, the duo unravels serpentine song structures that meander through tortuous rifts of towering riffage reminiscent of the angular approach to crafting melodies of some of black metal and death metal’s more avant-garde songsmiths, such as Deathspell Omega and possibly even Immolation. With a progressive compositional prowess that sees songs pivot gracefully amidst all of their twists and turns, even as the listener is battered by pummelling changes of pace, and with a flair for riff-craft that preserves the monumental apogees of many of these melodies, even as they strike some downright chilling tones, Serpent Column have fashioned one of the most stunning gems to have been unearthed from the metal underground so far this year.”) 25.00

THE SKULL DEFEKTS - s/t LP (thrill jockey - Cover artwork by Daniel Higgs. LP pressed on black virgin vinyl and presented in a tip-on jacket with printed inner sleeve and free download card.  The inner sleeve features printing on the inside pocket and the back side of the LP jacket is printed in four different colors.  We will select the color of jacket you get at random.   The Beauty of Creation and Destruction (or Death to The Skull Defekts) In January 2005, I had just finished a couple of weeks’ worth of shows in the UK playing guitar with a band called Kid Commando. We had released one album and a few 7”s in our six year lifetime and toured like mad. We were a live band and consisted of three very different personas, it’s a wonder we only got into one fist fight during our time together.) 21.00

SUMAC & KEIJI HAINO - american dollar bill DLP (thrill jockey - Japan’s fearless multi-instrumentalist and cultural provocateur Keiji Haino has made a career out of his free-form musical improvisations and diverse collaborations. Whether deconstructing American blues to a few rogue notes hanging across chasms of empty space in his solo endeavors, sparring with the nebulous fringes of psychedelia in Fushitsusha, or teaming up with musicians like Faust, Boris, Jim O’Rourke, Stephen O’Malley, John Zorn, and Peter Brötzmann for fleeting aural experiments. Haino’s work is never pre-planned or structured, but rather a completely spontaneous exploration of chemistry, texture, and dynamics. SUMAC’s tenure is much younger than Haino’s, though guitarist/vocalist Aaron Turner has covered a similarly large swath of musical territory across numerous projects and collaborations, from the sedated drones of recent projects with Daniel Menche and William Fowler Collins to the modern compositions of Mamiffer and all the way back to the restless evolutions of post-metal stalwarts ISIS. With his cohorts Nick Yacyshyn (Baptists, Erosion) on drums and Brian Cook (Russian Circles) on bass, Turner has dissolved the rigid forms of heavy music, searching for a balance between disciplined precision and unhinged musical barbarism, crafting music that vacillates between meticulously detailed instrumentation and uninhibited forays into oblique abstraction. For American Dollar Bill - Keep Facing Sideways, You're Too Hideous To Look At Face On, Keiji Haino and SUMAC met up in Tokyo’s Goksound recording studio to track a series of unrehearsed, completely non-premeditated sessions. Captured across several reels of tape, the collaboration harnessed Haino’s tension-inducing use of empty space on songs like “I’m over 137% a love junkie, and it’s still not enough” while pushing SUMAC’s dissident metal vocabulary on “What have I done (I was reeling in something white...)”. Throughout the course of its hour-plus length, American Dollar Bill pushes and pulls at the strictures of metal and bends the stylistic formalities of improvised music to create a sonic purge unencumbered by convention.) 26.00

THIS KIND OF PUNISHMENT - A Beard Of Bees LP (superior - In the fertile terrain of New Zealand’s 1980s post-punk scene, few figures loom as large as the Jefferies brothers. Graeme Jefferies and Peter Jefferies—the primary forces behind This Kind Of Punishment—wrote some of the best music to come out on Flying Nun, Xpressway or elsewhere. A dizzying mix of pastoral ballads and DIY experimentation, TKP’s songwriting was at once classic and acutely raw. Among This Kind Of Punishment’s myriad recordings, A Beard Of Bees best outlines the collective vision of the Jefferies brothers. Their classic second album feels more meticulous than its predecessor, proffering a grey, near-Mancunian influence that serves as both touchstone and springboard for the proceedings. The unique maneuvering on “Trepidation” is a marvel: guitar sweetness shifting toward melancholic piano and ending with their combined shimmer. Conversely, the augmented VU-inspired noise of “East Meets West” positions itself as the album’s prime moment of severity, creepily building toward horror-show screams that inch to a buried, found-sound resolution. Originally self-released in 1984, A Beard Of Bees has been out of print for almost 25 years.) 21.00

TCHORNOBOG - s/t DLP (fallen empire - "First conceived in 2009, TCHORNOBOG is not a worship of the Slavic "Black God". It is a result of heavy meditation in a desert landscape from the perspective of a vessel mountain which harbors a nest for the Mind's Eye to be imprisoned. I witnessed—without any hope of my eye closing—the terrible sensory overload of the black vomit of Tchornobog. The recordings provided here are a sonic journal of the metaphorical events and the empathetic interpretation of a landscape in my skull. Tchornobog is the first chapter in a book of many events in a universe born off the ashes of the inner pupil." Housed gatefold jackets with 12-page booklet. .) 37.00

V/A - hexadic III LP (drag city - Received a 7.6 rating from Pitchfork.  If we subscribe to the current ISO 8601, then 2018 is Hexadic year three—the third annum since we were introduced to a new wave in combinatorial theory with powerful potentialities for music composition. The book, The Hexadic System, was written by SIX ORGANS OF ADMITTANCE's BEN CHASNY, who demonstrated the possibilities of the system with two albums of Hexadic composition, as well as touring the music and chairing talks on the process and uses of THE SYSTEM around the United States and Great Britain. This third installment of the Hexadic series had been planned from the beginning—inviting others outside of Ben Chasny’s Hexadic headquarters to make music using THE SYSTEM. Features music from MOON DUO, JENKS MILLER, MEG BARID & CHARLIE SAUFLEY, TASHI DORJI, RICHARD YOUNGS, PHIL LEGARD, and STEPHEN O'MALLEY, TIM WYSKIDA & MARC URSELLI. .) 21.00

VOS CANTU MONEMUS - Words Never Said LP (ferderal green - VOS CANTU MONEMUS emerged from the folk underground of suburban sixties Maryland to issue one of the greatest micro press releases of a genre that translated the feelings of this turbulent time better than any other. Imbuing timeworn sounds with youthful hope; ethereal, haunting and inspiring all at once, Words Never Said is a journey through the looking glass to a time long gone. Soaring vocals, expert musicianship and to the point song arrangements make this an LP that goes down smooth then sinks in deep.) 25.00

YoshimiO / SUSIE IBARRA / ROBERT AIKI AUBREY LOWE - flower of sulphur DLP (thrill jockey - Stunning artwork by Ooido Syoujou (who just did the artwork for SAICOBAB's SAB SE PURANI BAB) In December of 2016, three improvisational luminaries performed live together for the first time. Multi-instrumentalist YoshimiO (Boredoms, OOIOO, SAICOBAB), avant-garde percussionist Susie Ibarra, and artist Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe (Lichens) met up in New York City for a singular evening of exquisite sound, documenting an exceptional performance and displaying their remarkable talents. YoshimiO is a drummer and member of the revolutionary group Boredoms who also plays guitar, keyboard and trumpet. She is the leader of the experimental band OOIOO, a member of Free Kitten with Kim Gordon (ex. Sonic Youth), and most recently the vocalist in SAICOBAB – a quartet who blend ancient Indian musical traditions and instruments with electronics and modern sounds. Known for her ability to improvise in a variety of contexts, YoshimiO has previously performed and recorded improvisational music with saxophonist Mats Gustafsson, Jim O’Rourke, and recently with Lowe, and then Ibarra during a series of collaborative performances in New York City, late in 2015. Susie Ibarra, is one of the most significant female percussionists and composers of our time, known for her work as a performer within contemporary, avant-garde, jazz, classical, and world music. Ibarra studied with jazz luminaries Earl Buster Smith (of Sun Ra Arkestra), Vernel Fournier and Milford Graves, and Philippine Kulintang gong-chime music with Danongan Kalanduyan. Ibarra has been recognized for her work as a musician and cultural documenter through her work with indigenous tribes in the Philippines, receiving a TED Fellowship, an Asian Cultural Council Rockefeller Fellowship, and an award from New York Foundation for the Arts. She has performed with the likes of: John Zorn, Dave Douglas, Yo La Tengo, Mamadou Kelly, Sylvie Courvoisier, Ikue Mori, Marc Ribot, Yuka Honda, Derek Bailey, Wadada Leo Smith, and many more. Ibarra currently leads her band Dreamtime Ensemble with their new album Perception, blending strings, vocals, electronics and percussion in her compositions. Recent works include Mirrors and Water, a sound installation for Ai Wei Wei's Circle of Animals at the National Wildlife Museum; Musical Water Routes of Fez, a music and architecture app for the Medina of Fez, Morocco in collaboration with architect Aziza Chaouni; Fragility: An Exploration of Polyrhythms, an interactive game piece commissioned by Asia Society in partnership with the Pioneer Works residency program. Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe is a multidisciplinary artist whose practice is strongly rooted in exploration of moments and the hypnagogic state. Movement and gesture play key factors within this process, and in the performance realm are focused on by voice and modular synthesizer. His most recent work has seen him curating an exhibition at the Museum Of Arts and Design in Manhattan called Subject to Gesture, as well as exhibiting works at the Rubin Museum in a show called the World is Sound as well as at the John Michael Kohler Art Centre in Sheboygan Wisconsin called An Encounter with Presence. Lowe has contributed music to Denis Villeneuve films Sicario and Arrival, and was a fixture of Chicago’s experimental community throughout the 90s and early 2000s prior to relocating to New York.) 25.00

VEUVE S.S. - Traître à tout LP (nerdcore - Traître à tout handmade and handscreened LP covers and lyric sheets - Artwork by Hugues/PZZL 100 on black. “Traître à tout" is relentless, gritty, and a raw barrage of hardcore punk with all the intensity/insanity and audacity of the first E.P.'s. VEUVE S.S. final LP develops a sound that is probably the most aggressive & screeching of previous recorded material: a hideous rotting beast. Combining distortion and chugging, speedy riffs to more obscure & dissonant sounds, the band crashes over a breadth of classic influences, and embodies ferocity, and self hatred. Song after song VEUVE S.S. shatter their way towards a harsh and inevitably devastating end.) 20.00

V/A - Music From Yemen Arabia (Recorded By Ragnar Johnson & Jessica Mayer) DLP (sub rosa - These songs originate from the city of Sanaa, the sheikdom of Lahej and the port of Aden. Samar is the delicious, luxury time when people gather for relaxation, refreshment and music. This record contains oudh playing, percussion and singing from Yemen. The three Kawkabani brothers sing traditional poems and play oudh (lute), double drums, tambourine and, occasionally, the kanoun (zither). They were recorded in Sanaa in 1973. The oudh player Hassan al Zabeede and his double drum playing brother sing songs in the Lahej style and were recorded in Taez in 1973.) 22.00

Jotnarr plow through 2 tracks of filthy blackened squalor - massive black metal darkness with hints of raging crust and just that touch of melody here and there to add a dark emotional weight.) 5.00

GROUP OF MAN - Always Looming 7“ (holy roar - The band started as a project between Chris Barling and Mark Scurr, who were quickly joined by Nick Searle, Stuart Anderson and Tom Davis, composing a band made up of ex-members of MINE, Hang The Bastard, Pariso, Tempers Fray and a heap of other UKHC low-key legends. About a year in, this is already their third release and November 2017 will see Group Of Man embark on already their second European tour too. This band is what happens when hardcore kids grow up.) 6.00

TROIKA - Una Vida 7" (Since i unfortunately don't speak spanish and there's not much info about this band, all i can say that it's pretty profane and simple but full throttle onward "grrrl" punk rock performed by this quite young band from Madrid (Spain). Eight tracks that remind a lot of some classic VULPESS style without the odd pop elements! - This album was recorded in january 2017 at the COKO La Kondenada squat by "Como churros grabaciones". Cover art by Mario (mariommartinez.blogspot.de) - Comes with a massive and thick 24 page booklet containing lyrics and artwork. Great debut! ) 5.00

TDOAFS (The Discord Of A Forgotten Sketch) / ALBATROS - split 10“ (dingleberry - New split 10". 4 songs each. The Discord Of A Forgotten Sketch (also written thediscordofaforgottensketch or TDOAFS) are a three-piece screamo/emo violence band from Montreal, Quebec, Canada that formed in 2001. Despite the fact that they've been around forever, their main activity has only been in the past few years, which is why they're often associated with bands such as Beau Navire. TDOAFS have got every aspect a great screamo needs absolutely nailed. They're dark, chaotic, but also painfully melodic, and have that slight hint of jazz influence nailed down. Throw in some elements of hardcore, and you've got a band that will remind you why you love screamo/skramz so damn much. Based in Quebec City, Albatros is a seven piece musical outfit that's been active for almost 10 years to this day. In addition to the more ''usual'' rythm section, this band counts a full brass section wich contributes to making their music stand out from what's around these days. Combining their (obviously) numerous influences, their sound is hard to pinpoint but includes touches of screamo, black metal and even jazz at times.) 11.00

LP

BEAUTIFY JUNKYARDS - The Invisible World of Beautify Junkyards LP (ghostbox - Lisbon’s Beautify Junkyards effortlessly blend their love of English Acid Folk and Brazilian Tropicalia in a collection of songs that conjure up a warm and verdant faerie world. Delicate acoustic guitars evoke an autumnal England suffused with Iberian heat by other-worldly voices; the ethereal lilt of João Branco Kyron and the warm languor of Rita Vian. The production is tempered with a haunted electronic palette that anchors the band squarely in the world of Ghost Box. Their sound is further enhanced by newest member Helena Espvall ( formerly of Espers) on guitar and cello. With João Moreira on acoustic guitar and synth, Sergue Ra on bass and Antonio Watts on drums they are altogether an astonishingly talented group of people.) 21.00

BONEFLOWER - Empty Rooms, Full Bodies LP (dingleberry - Finally the awaited Boneflower´s full length is available. With "I´ll be the bones, you´ll be the soul" (2016, Miss the Stars, Dingleberry...) the band was able to place themselves in a really good position among the international Screamo / Post-Hardcore scene, having the chance to do a couple of European tours, playing festivals like Miss the stars or Fluff fest and all this "learning the ropes" process has this new album as a wonderful result. 12 new songs recorded by Juan Blas at Westline Studios and mastered by Victor García at Ultramarinos, which contents a perfect and balanced atmospheric Screamo with some Spoken-words passages for fans of bands like Piano Become the Teeth, Old Gray or Viva Belgrado.) 12.00

CANCERBERO - Malevolence LP (7 tracks of old school poser-crushing Death Metal in the purest South American way: raw, fast and heavy as fuck! 5 tracks from the original Malevolence CD, plus two bonus tracks: "Into Death" and "Guardian of Hell" from 1988 demo "Guardian of Hell“.) 13.00

ERIC CHENAUX - Slowly Paradise LP (Eric Chenaux makes conceptual music that’s not meant to sound conceptual. He operates among various 'traditions' but perhaps most broadly, Chenaux's records grapple with the relationship between improvisation and structure in very particular, unique, idiosyncratic ways – and quite without irony or cynicism, through love. Because fundamentally, Chenaux writes love songs, which he sings in a voice honeyed and clear, while his guitar gently bends, frazzes, chortles, diverges and decomposes. This juxtaposition of his mellow, dexterous crooning and his highly experimental (and equally dexterous) guitar explorations, explodes even unconventional notions of singing and accompaniment, of tonal and timbral interplay between guitar and voice. As a solo artist, Chenaux's improvisation methods are in certain literal ways solipsistic: as a singer-songwriter, he plays his guitar around and against his voice, challenging easy notions of harmony/harmoniousness, improvising 'with himself' in pursuit of surprising himself (and his listeners) as he unfurls ribbons of voice and instrument often to the point of seeming independence, all the better to capture­­ – and be captured by – unforeseen, intimate moments of interdependence: a definition of freedom, as a profoundly intentional state of openness, presence and play. Even within avant-garde currents of folk and jazz balladry, Eric Chenaux feels like an outlier. Yet his music remains wonderfully warm, generous and fundamentally accessible in spite of its irrefutable iconoclasm. While the constitutive elements of Chenaux’s solo work in recent years might suggest some underlying devotion to asceticism, the opposite is much more true: his musical reveries resist, critique and counteract austerity (in all its forms) in a joyful abandonment to the improvised space where playfulness and light-heartedness are taken seriously, and where love is invoked and expressed, without reductive or facile sentimentalism, in a full, nuanced, clear-eyed suspension/rejection of the cynical life. Slowly Paradise is Eric Chenaux’s new solo record – a lovely collection of mostly long songs guided by soothing, buttery singing and bent, fried fretwork. It is arguably Chenaux’s most assured and essential solo work, expanding upon the critical acclaim his previous releases Guitar & Voice and Skullsplitter have rightly garnered. Thanks for listening.) 24.00

HOT SNAKES - Jericho Sirens LP (sub pop - - - - - Attention: Typically our limited edition Loser vinyl is some wild n' wacky color vinyl but NOT THIS TIME. The first pressing of this record will still be exclusive but it will be black colored vinyl instead. Don't be confused! Traditions are meant to be burned down time and again. - - - - Swami John Reis and Rick Froberg have been making noises together since high school. In 1986 it was the post-hardcore chime of Pitchfork. In 1991 it was the sprawling, multi-faceted arrangements of Drive Like Jehu. In 1999 it was the lean, mean swagger of Hot Snakes. Reis and Froberg are responsible for some of the most turbulent rock and roll of their, or any, generation. Hot Snakes streamlined Jehu’s complex compositions and emerged as bona fide downstroke warlords. They made 3 studio albums of high-velocity, slash-your-face, piss-punk: 2000’s Automatic Midnight, 2002’s Suicide Invoice and 2004’s Audit in Progress. The band ceased activity in 2005 but reunited for a triumphant world tour in 2011, planting the seeds for what has cum. Now, after a 14-year hiatus from the studio, Hot Snakes have kicked down the door back into our lives with their new album, Jericho Sirens, due out March 16 from Sub Pop. Fresh, warm piss, bottled and sold as lube. The new album blasts out of the speakers with the furious “I Need a Doctor,” inspired by Froberg’s experience needing a doctor's note in order to miss an important work function. “Yeah, I had to be quick on my feet," says Rick. "Luckily a friend had a stack of stationary from Planned Parenthood and I used that to forge a note relieving me of my obligation to go to a really lame Christmas party at a karaoke joint.” Throughout Jericho Sirens, Froberg commiserates with the frustration and torrential apathy that seems to be a fixture in our daily lives, while also reminding us that we have no fucking clue. “Songs like ‘Death Camp Fantasy’ and ‘Jericho Sirens’ are about that,” he says. “No matter where you look, there’re always people saying the world’s about to end. Every movie is a disaster movie. I’m super fascinated by it. It is hysterical, and it’s a self-fulfilling prophecy. It snowballs, like feedback, or my balls on the windshield.” In tandem with a full back catalog reissue series and the new album, Hot Snakes will return to the road in 2018 to incinerate the villages, and they’re already looking ahead to more music. Says Gar Wood, “There're already 2 more records written and recorded. We wanted to come out with this one using the more mainstream sounding stuff to give people a chance to catch up.” ) 19.00

KILLING ADDICTION - Shores Of Oblivion LP (American death metal band, based in Ocala, FL, USA. Formed in 1988, they disbanded in 1998, only to reform in 2006. This is their latest material from 2016….finally on vinyl.) 13.00

LA VASE - same LP (phantom - Nach dem großartigen Demotape aus 2015 jetzt das Album. Zehn tighte Midtempo Punksongs, die nicht mehr so schnell los lassen und mit 23min Laufzeit: nicht zu kurz, nicht zu lang, genau meine Aufmerksamkeitsspanne. So oder so wird das Eure neue Lieblingsplatte.) 13.00

LOVVE - Povver Violence LP (dingleberry - Awesome new all-star band (Ed Warner, Verbal Razors, Nine Eleven…) playing a fresh, fast, catchy and super efficient power violence from Tours, France.) 12.00

MAX EASTLEY / STEVE BERESFORD / PAUL BURWELL / DAVID TOPP - whirled music LP (black truffle - Black Truffle is honored to present the first ever reissue of Whirled Music by Max Eastley, Steve Beresford, Paul Burwell and David Toop, one of the key documents of the inventive and energetic scene around the London Musicians Collective in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Originally released on Toop’s own Quartz label in 1980, the LP features a remarkable series of performances made entirely with whirled and swung instruments and objects. Part of the second generations of British free improvising musicians, the prolific scene centered around the performers heard here chafed at the limitations present within the music and ideology of improvising legends such as Derek Bailey, Evan Parker, Tony Oxley and John Stevens. Where the first generations of British free improvisers often demonstrated a rigorous commitment to non-idiomatic free improvisation and instrumental virtuosity, musicians like Beresford reconnected with the dada antics of figures like Han Bennink and surrendered to joyful musical promiscuity, gleefully disrupting expectations around ‘serious’ improvised music through quotations (of anything from Betthoven to reggae) and deliberate amateurism. However, where many recordings by various groupings of these musicians made around this time are gloriously anarchic real-time collages – see the classic Alterations LPs – Whirled Music is a singularly focused affair. Beginning in 1979, Whirled Music was the title given to a series of performances in which a variety of instruments and objects, both home made and store bought, traditional and invented, would be whirled to produce sound. In addition to variations on traditional instruments such as the bullroarer, Whirled Music also made use of whirled whistles, hand drums, radios and microphones. Due to the danger this represented for both performers and audiences, the performers wore protective masks and were separated from the audience by a net.) 25.00

NAP EYES - I'm Bad Now LP (paradise of - The acclaimed Canadians return with an ambitious, allusive third album that achieves a new sonic clarity, depth, and range to match the effortless melodies and extraordinary writing. It’s the band's most transparent and personal set of songs to date, in which singer Nigel Chapman interrogates social, psychological, and spiritual milieus for clues about the elusive nature of knowledge.) 18.00

NECRODANCER - Void LP (throatruiner - Franco-belgian squad NECRODANCER doesn't waste time with warning shots and directly introduce themselves to the world with "Void", their debut album. Formed in 2016 between Paris and Liège by members hailing from various corners of the heavy music realm (Verdun, Daggers, Death Mercedes, Radio Maquis…) the band establishes with "Void" an already personal, hard-to pin sound. Drawing as much from swampy noise rock as from the punkier edge of later-era Darkthrone, these self-proclaimed funeral grungers are as comfortable with surprisingly catchy melodic hooks as with remorseless crust assaults. Recorded and mixed by Amaury Sauvé (Birds In Row, Plebeian Grandstand, Death Engine) then mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Okkultokrati, Nails, Full Of Hell) for maximum damages, NECRODANCER's firepower will be hard to ignore.) 13.00

NIGHTWATCHERS - who's to blame LP (ptrash - WHO’S TO BLAME is NIGHTWATCHERS’ new EP and get ready to hear an high quality record of sad / dark punk rock. The french quartet from Toulouse, featuring members of Wank For Peace, No Guts No Glory and other cool punk rock bands, already killed it with their 2016’s demo and here are 6 new tracks with a Masshysteri / The Vicious / Radio Birdman feeling.) 12.00

OKKYUNG LEE & BILL ORCUTT - Live at Cafe Oto LP (The full recording of the first meeting between Bill Orcutt (USA) and Okkyung Lee (South Korea). Individually these players have focused on an idiosyncratic approach to their chosen instruments and technique. Okkyung is one of the most singular voices to compromise the cello's classical origin, while Orcutt has spent many years developing a unique abstraction of traditional guitar blues. Live at Cafe OTO is an uncompromising combination of these individual elements and an ecstatic improvised assault of mind and sense. Okkyung Lee: cello. Bill Orcutt: guitar.180-gram LP in matte sleeve with artwork by Bill Orcutt. Limited edition of 500.) 20.00

PRISONER - Beyond The Infinite LP (forecefield - PRISONER emerged from the fertile Richmond underground in 2012 and has been dragging their feral, unforgiving roar across the East Coast and Midwest ever since. In 2014 FORCEFIELD RECORDS issued their debut EP offering FEAR IS THE MIND-KILLER on cassette, a savage demonstration of deranged hardcore/metal that viciously declared their arrival to an unsuspecting world while simultaneously hinting on the insanity yet to come…now enter BEYOND THE INFINITE! On PRISONER’S newest offering and vinyl debut, the band has laid waste to any and all preconceptions. Meticulously recorded by Ricky Olson (Unsacred, Unholy Thoughts, etc.) at The Ward in Richmond, VA and mastered by Brad Boatright (Nails, YOB, Poison Idea, etc.) at Audiosiege, PRISONER is poised to take on the world with their unique brand of noise damaged, nightmarish hardcore/metal. From the “arena crust” on acid vibe of burners like “Eternalist” and “Starve” to the oppressive, industrial inspired madness of behemoths like “Elapse” and “Abyss” this record is truly beholden to no weak genre construct. Blast beat ridden passages of tremolo picked terror give way to swathes of synth soaked post-metalish uproar. Unhinged, noisy d-beat raging crashes headfirst into the creeping slow grind of industrial treachery. This is BEYOND THE INFINITE, a harrowing soundtrack to survival pulled from the claustrophobic underbelly of society.) 12.00

PYE CORNER AUDIO - Where Things Are Hollow LP (lapsus - It's the return of Pye Corner Audio to Lapsus Records with the EP, "Where Things Are Hollow", comprised of four breath-taking songs that transport the listener to a dystopian future throughout its twenty-four minute duration. Martin Jenkins aka "the artist’s artist" explores emotive techno in "Resist" and "Northern Safety Route", two tracks that coast through progressive arpeggios, slow pulsating beats and soaring pads. Meanwhile "Mainframe" and "Continental Drift" move through more ambient and melancholic terrains, two cinematic songs that are perhaps reminiscent of works by John Carpenter or Delia Derbyshire. In short, "Where Things Are Hollow" is a beguiling analogue electronica EP that is guaranteed to delight Pye Corner Audio fans and new listeners alike. This special release will also feature the collaboration of two of the country’s most prestigious independent graphic artists, Alex Trochut and Basora, whose artwork for "Where Things Are Hollow" is sure to become a collector's piece.) 16.00

SKULLFLOWER - Werecat Powers Of The Crossroads At Midnight LP (Matthew Bower and Samantha Davies of Skullflower on Werecat Powers Of The Crossroads At Midnight: "The continuation of the audio trilogy concerning the Darkness of Aegypt: the shadow stuff from whence dark dreams come. The Triad: dark, light and the animating serpent power are delineated by the Egyptian Gods Set, Horus and the Apep serpent. The second parting of the ways, lord of the crossroads, the double horizon, the xroads of day and night, the mauve zone, the death posture. We brought back: a twilight mechanism, and hymns to the charnel ground, ashes, jackals and the bulto hyaena, pacing the departure lounges of abandoned airports.“) 25.00

THISISMENOTTHINKINGOFYOU - s/t LP (middleman - One-man Ambient/Emoviolence project from UK.Compilation grouping the previously unreleased Obstructive Sleep tracks with previously released material from Thisismenotthinkingofyou / Us Pàlm, Control / Reform EP and Restlessness. Comes in a folded sheet of paper.) 12.00

V/A - BEDROOM TAPES LP (minimal - A Compilation of Minimal Wave From Around The World (1980-1991), The Bedroom Tapes features rare, unreleased, and licensed tracks all the way from Belgium to Australia to Japan. The Bedroom Tapes excitedly marks Minimal Wave’s 66th release and is a follow up in the series to The Lost Tapes, The Found Tapes, The Hidden Tapes and of course The Minimal Wave Tapes. The twelve artists on this compilation mostly recorded their music onto 4-track tape in their bedroom studios. The sounds on this record range from German new wave to experimental electronic, to early industrial body music from the Swedish countryside, to dreary melodic minimal synth. The theme is music recorded in the bedroom for listening in the bedroom. The Bedroom Tapes presents songs from Pink Elln, Karen Marks, Disque Omo, Vorgruppe, Iham/Echo, Perfect Mother, Arvid Tuba, Subject, Denial, Unovidual, Aural indifference, and Autumn all lovingly remastered. Limited edition of 999 numbered copies, pressed on 180 gram vinyl, and housed in heavy printed jacket accompanied by printed inner jacket with artists photos and info.) 25.00

V/A - Cronica Tecnica DLP (Compilation Of Industrial & Noise from Madrid (1981 - 1991). During the eighties, in Spain, tons of electronic music cassettes appeared, often unipersonal, where the artist himself became the editor and distributor of his works. It was DIY at its purest. The appearance of the multitrack recorder and cassette duplicators helped the emergence of this soon international underground movement. The first cassettes published in Spain, framed within the electronic music, came from pioneers such as Esplendor Geométrico, La Otra Cara De Un Jardín, and el Internado (the first project of fame Francisco López). Shortly after, artists and labels appeared throughout the Spanish geography, such as Ortega y Cassette and Laboratorio de Música Desconocida, both in Barcelona, Auxilio de Cientos (Granada), Consumo del Miedo (Jaén), Necronomicón (Puertollano), STI (Zaragoza), and others. The underground electronic scene in Madrid during the eighties was agglutinated largely around cassette seals such as Toracic Tapes (directed by Miguel A. Ruiz), I.E.P. (founded by musician Luis Mesa), Proceso Uvegraf (Juan Teruel), and EGK (the sublabel for cassettes of Discos Esplendor Geométrico). Cronica Técnica is a compilation of themes from this scene recorded between 1981 and 1991, most of which were originally published on cassette, and which focused mainly on industrial, noise, and experimental music. Followers of the industrial music and the experimental underground of the seventies and eighties (Throbbing Gristle, Cabaret Voltaire, Esplendor Geométrico, Maurizio Bianchi, SPK, Asmus Tietchens, etc.) will appreciate and be surprised with this selection for its quality, especially thinking that this music has been kept hidden since then. The selection was made by Andrés Noarbe, manager and editor of Esplendor Geométrico since its founding in 1980 and director of the pioneer label in publishing electronic music in Spain: Discos E.G. (now Geometrik Records). He lived this movement of cassette labels in Spain in the first row from the beginning, and met most of its protagonists. Cronica Técnica is edited by Geometrik Records in collaboration with Munster Records, and is the second volume of the Spanish Underground Cassette Movement series after the first one: Fungus Cerebri (GR 2139LP, 2016), dedicated entirely to Esplendor Geométrico. Cronica Técnica features Orfeon Gagarin, Uvegraf, Funeral Souvenir, Miguel A. Ruiz, Técnica Material, La Otra Cara De Un Jardín, and Luis Mesa. Includes an eight-page, A4 booklet with information, images, photos, and two exclusive texts, in Spanish and English, by Francisco Felipe (La Otra Cara De Un Jardín) and Andrés Noarbe; Edition of 500.) 30.00

V/A - Music From Yemen Arabia DLP (sub rosa Recorded By Ragnar Johnson & Jessica Mayer) DLP (sub rosa - These songs originate from the city of Sanaa, the sheikdom of Lahej and the port of Aden. Samar is the delicious, luxury time when people gather for relaxation, refreshment and music. This record contains oudh playing, percussion and singing from Yemen. The three Kawkabani brothers sing traditional poems and play oudh (lute), double drums, tambourine and, occasionally, the kanoun (zither). They were recorded in Sanaa in 1973. The oudh player Hassan al Zabeede and his double drum playing brother sing songs in the Lahej style and were recorded in Taez in 1973.) 22.00


CD

AFSKY - Sorg CD (vendetta - For those who may be new to Afsky, it is the solo project of Ole Luk, who is also a member of the Danish black metal band Solbrud. Fittingly, the name he chose for this project means “disgust” or “detest” in Danish, though as you’ll discover, the emotional resonance of the music embraces other powerful feelings as well. Unmistakably, the seven songs on Sorg plumb the dark waters of depressive black metal, yet Afsky does that in ways that often prove mesmerizing. The songs are built around evocative, memorable melodies that wear their strong emotions on their sleeves, some disturbing and some beautiful. The power ebbs and flows, and in the crescendos of intensity, Ole Luk uses his searing, acid-bathed voice to burn their messages into your brain like a red hot brand.(No Clean Singing)) 10.00


TAPES


ISRATHOUM - Antru Kald TAPE (Three years after the fantastic "Black Poison and Shared Wounds" ISRATHOUM returns! The trio of VxInfr, Arvath and W.uR delivers a wicked and poisonous audial assault with a new record, entitled "Antru Kald". Originally started as a conceptual project as far back as 1998, it is only now - 17 years later - revealed and unleashed upon mankind. It represents all that defines ISRATHOUM: it adheres to the roots, but doesn't let itself be entangled in the vines, instead developing and evolving upon them into a formation, that is unlike anything else in the scene. This conceptual piece was recorded over several years, with help from Mories of black industrial movement GNAW THEIR TONGUES, who is also responsible for the cover art. The mastering was once again done by Kark of DØDSENGEL. ) 6.00

LP

ANNA VON HAUSSWOLFF - dead magic LP (city slang - Magic, as old as humanity itself, is the primordial answer to the threat of losing our own presence in the world, the fear of oblivion. From magic the most fascinating, mysterious and enchanting stories are born, but also the most obscure and fatal ones. The death of magic represents the conjuncture of contradictions, the End of the End and the Beginning of the Beginning, the decay of myths and legends, the brutal overthrow of chaos, the end of the world, as we know it.  Dead Magic: this is the paradox chosen by Anna von Hausswolff to open the doors to disturbance and anxiety. A title that embodies disorientation, an unsettling suggestion of which nothing can be known and that, by choice of the artist, will not be further explained.  Dead Magic, Anna von Hausswolff’s fourth album, was composed in the summer of 2016 in her hometown Gothenburg, Sweden, and recorded the following year in Copenhagen, Denmark. The majority of recordings were done on the 20th century organ at Copenhagen’s Marmorkirken, “the Marble Church”, one of the largest churches in Scandinavia, with a chapel inspired by the majestic St Peter’s Basilica in Rome.  Dead Magic is five songs extending over 47 minutes and 20 seconds: “The Truth, the Glow, the Fall”, “The Mysterious Vanishing of Electra”, “Ugly and Vengeful”, “The Marble Eye” and “Källans återuppståndelse”. The album sees her joined by Karl Vento (guitar), Joel Fabiansson (guitar), Filip Leyman (synthesizers), Ulrik Ording (drums) and David Sabel (bass), with string arrangements on “The Truth, the Glow, the Fall”and “Källans Återuppståndelse” by Úlfur Hansson. The production of Dead Magic was entrusted to the multifaceted Randall Dunn, known for collaborating with iconic bands such as Sunn O))), Earth and Wolves in the Throne Room (whose recent album Thrice Woven Anna contributed vocals to).  ) 20.00

BELTEZ - Exiled, Punished​.​.​.​Rejected LP (bac in stock - A mixture between gloomy USBM and 90s Scandinavian Black Metal with a sinister individual touch hailing from Cologne, Germany.) 18.00

BLYH - transparent to the world LP (crawling - There's a strange sense of dislocation that possesses a reviewer when the opportunity to comment on something really stunning and relatively unknown emerges. Strange in the sense that the music that I am reviewing has seemingly reached almost no one...yet, just in the sense that such a deeply raw and moving piece of metal has come from seemingly no where. blyh, a two piece black metal outfit from Germany, have created a very rare thing: a wake up call. Not anticipated, not predicted, not predicated on past accomplishments. This is what Jung intended when he invoked the concept of syzygy; the archetypal knowing that there are alignments in all things, and that the stars bring forth the strangest of conjunctions.  This is a ferociously competent debut album. While being at once raw and relentless, it has a deep anchor in the tropes of melodic black metal and is as deep in hypnotic ambience as it is in unremitting ferocity. The compositions here deftly pull in gaze and atmospheric elements without sacrificing the primality of black metal or losing the plot to wandering ambience. Short, to the point, but excelling in both subtlety and savagery, blyh is a band to watch out for. (the sludgelord) clear vinyl, limited to 250 copies) 15.00

COCTEAU TWINS - Head Over Heels LP (4AD - Released in late-1983, Head Over Heels is the Cocteau Twins’ second album and features classic tracks ‘Sugar Hiccup’ and ‘Musette And Drums’. Coming not long after original bassist Will Heggie had departed the band, the chemistry between remaining members Elizabeth Fraser and Robin Guthrie was flourishing.  By moving the band on from the starkness of their debut, they were now making the music that would help them define the decade ahead; her wordless, dreamlike vocals a powerful instrument over his lush, textured guitars.) 25.00

COCTEAU TWINS - Treasure LP (4AD - The band returned to being a trio in 1984 with guitarist Simon Raymonde joining their ranks in time for third album, Treasure. Produced by Robin Guthrie and featuring tracks ‘Lorelei’, ‘Ivo’ and ‘Persephone’, Treasure is often celebrated as one of the band’s finest works.  As Pitchfork put it when including the album in their Top 100 Albums of the 1980s, “Treasure was titled simply enough.  An adjective for the endlessly inventive melodic lines you'd find buried in these songs, and a verb for what you'd do with them for years to come.”) 25.00
COLIN NEWMAN - provisionally entitled the singing fish LP (In the early 1980s, Newman released a brace of solo albums which continued to push several envelopes. His second album, the perversely named provisionally entitled the singing fish, was released in 1981 and proves that Newman was more than able to work outside the traditional rock format. A collection of imaginary soundtrack pieces in the manner of Brian Eno’s Music For Films, provisionally entitled the singing fish is a diverse collection of instrumentals, encompassing the atmospheric, the abstract and the thrillingly propulsive.) 20.00

COLIN NEWMAN - Not To LP (Not To sees Newman developing his distinctive art-rock in a more melodic pop direction. Songs such as the gorgeous ‘Lorries’ with its chiming Byrds-like guitars and serpentine bass line, or the reflective ‘Remove For Improvement’, contribute to an album with a strong psychedelic sensibility - complete with an unexpected Beatles cover – a deeply woozy take on George Harrison’s ‘Blue Jay Way’.) 20.00

COLIN NEWMAN - A - Z LP (A-Z picks up exactly where Wire’s classic first three albums left off. In fact, Newman’s debut is one of post-punk’s great lost masterpieces, mixing slanted lyrics, fizzing analogue synths and Newman’s trademark angular guitar work. Highlights include the bass propelled stomp of album opener ‘I’ve Waited Ages’, which features heavily distorted guitar loops and some seriously bizarre lyrics which could give Spike Milligan a run for his money. Whilst the Syd Barrett on steroids mania of ‘S-S-S-Star Eyes’ sees Newman constructing a strangely catchy song from just one note, around which are woven numerous counter melodies.) 20.00

CORRUPTED - Felicific Algorithim LP (cold spring - Corrupted is a mysterious Japanese doom metal band, formed in 1994. Immensely downtuned guitar and crushingly slow bass are shrouded under deep layers of feedback. They are rightly hailed as one of the heaviest and darkest doom metal bands of all time. “Humankind’s folly it its continuing idiocy. This is the beginning of the “Hollow” series. The schoolyard of the school was buried in the mountains of radioactive contaminated rubble. We cannot hear children’s voices from anywhere. I hear it is the world of sound of only footsteps and the warning sound of the Geiger counter…” (Chew Hasegawa) This record isn’t your standard doom fare. The title-less tracks are to be played at either standard vinyl speed. Therefore (and at the band’s request), no samples or download code. The limited 12″ is accompanied by a foldout poster.) 19.00

ERIK K. SKODVIN & RAUELSSON - A Score for Darling LP (sonic pieces - A Score for Darling is both the sound track for the Danish film "Darling" (2017) as well as a collection of outakes from it. Raúl Pastor Medall (Rauelsson) and Erik K Skodvin (Svarte Greiner & 1/2 of Deaf Center) were paired together to work on the accompanying music after the director, Birgitte Stærmose wanted to try a new direction. Both together and individually they have created a highly affecting collection of pieces to a film that is not afraid of pushing the emotional content to the max, centered around the story of a dancer on the rollercoster ride of her life. This is also the first time either of them have made a full lenght sound track, making it their debut on the big screen. The music and instrumentation heard on the album is brimming with dynamics and diversity, featuring violin by Christoph Berg, cello by Anne Müller as well as a mass of other sounds like church organs, synths, guitar amp violation, electro-acoustics, piano and more, all layered together into 15 beautiful and devastating fragments of mood. The final piece of the album "Breathe" - featuring Otto A Totland on piano and Katinka Fogh Vindelev (We like We) on voice - can be seen as their own lamenting end title to a longer period of work with this album, finally finished.) 27.00

THE EX - 27 Passports LP (Dutch band The Ex formed in 1979 and were initially known as an anarcho-punk band. Since, they have released over 20 full-length albums of musical experiments and numerous collaborations blending punk and free jazz with styles of folk music from all over the world. "We always start from zero when we make a new album. We enter the rehearsal room with a few loose ideas, a riff or a beat and see what happens. There is always the risk that it doesn't work out. That risk is part of our music and of our lives." - The Ex. With the unmistakable "Ex energy". the three-pronged guitar approach is still as exciting as ever, with the guitars of Andy Moor, Terrie Hessels and Arnold de Boer creating tense, interlocking webs of connections, and drummer Katherina Bornefeld pushing the band with dancing, hypnotic patterns. There are some remnants of their African adventures (with Ethiopian legend Getatchew Mekuria) , but most of all, this is a return to the power of The Ex as a unit that effortlessly juggles noisy/disjointed guitar parts, trance-like grooves, defiant chanting and a relentless, infectious drive. Vinyl includes a 36-page, 30 x 30 cm photo book. Photos by Andy Moor.) 18.00

HUERCO S. - For Those Of You Who Have Never (And Also Those Who Have) DLP (Huerco S returns with a set of warm ambient tracks. While some of these loop-driven pieces refer to Japanese artists (like Susumu Yokota), you'll also find an unmissable injection of Chain Reaction (and the likes). The sound is light, soft and intimate, but the disruptive moments from his debut album have not completely vanished. With 'For Those Of..', After his Deep House and Dubtechno excursions on Proibito, Huerco S continues to work with 'classic' sounds and genres without losing his 'outsider' position.) 24.00

JH1.FS3 - loyalty LP (ideal - This is deeply personal and sensual music. The listener is allowed to enter the inner zones of the private and artistic relationships between Frederikke Hoffmeier and Jesse Sanes. It is something beautiful, rare and very intimate that is communicated through words and restrained electronic experimentalism. It is almost violent in its openness. "Loyalty" is more than reading someones diary. "Loyalty" is more like reading someones mind. JH1.FS3 is a special collaboration between Los Angeles-based Hoffmeier (Puce Mary) and Jesse Sanes (Liebestod/Hoax). They have released a couple of hard to find tapes and this is their debut album.) 18.00

JOHANN JOHANNSSON - englabörn & variations DLP (deutsche Grammophon - Deutsche Grammophon reissues Icelandic composer Johann Johannsson's critically acclaimed 2002 solo debut Englabörn in a 2LP-set featuring the remastered original album and eleven reworks by leading contemporary names like Ryuichi Sakamoto and A Winged Victory for the Sullen (Dustin O'Halloran). Derived from music he wrote for an Icelandic play of the same name, Englabörn was written for string quartet, piano, organ, glockenspiel and percussion. These elements were processed and manipulated, adding delicate electronic backgrounds to the otherwise entirely acoustic recordings.) 30.00

KINK GONG - Dian Long DLP (discrepant - Before becoming KINK GONG I had different names, one of my projects, designed by cultural circumstances in China at the beginning of the 21st Century, was DIAN LONG (electric dragon in Chinese). Starting a very long trip to nowhere I landed in Shanghai in 2000, with my gear in my bag in order to make music and recordings of whatever. Faced with the cruel tendency of modern China to reject tradition and embrace full on bling bling culture, my option was to attack this music industry commercial flavour by destroying it. I had in my bag a faithful portable CD player who knew how to turn syrup into crystal. Later, reaching Yunnan in 2001, I discovered the reality away from the bling bling of eastern towns and did a realistic soundscape of it.) 27.00

KING TUBBY (Ft. Riley All Stars) - concrete jungle dub LP (dub store - 1976 rare dub album consists of robust Techniques rhythms dismantled and reconstructed by King Tubby to its perfection. Long-expected reissue of one of the most sought after dub albums.) 30.00

LOREN CONNORS - pretty as ever LP (recital - The fourth LP in Recital’s Loren Connors editions/reissue series. Pretty As Ever is a beautiful collection of Loren’s guitar ballads, dedicated to his wife Suzanne. Includes the “Pretty As Ever” and “Trinity” suites, from the out of print album Sails (2005), alongside the complete Little Match Girl (2000). This album falls in line with the other LPs Recital has published, Airs, Lullaby, Evangeline... as hopeful and careful as a heartbeat. This LP also comes with Woman of Sorrows, a 12-page art-booklet of illustrations by Loren, unpublished until now. Also comes with Loren’s rendering of The Little Match Girl, a tragic tale written by Hans Christian Anderson.) 23.00

PTTRNS - material und Geschichte LP (altin village - »The goal of the revolution,« it has been noted, »is the abolition of fear.« Any confidence for the future must be understood within the ramifications of a past that informs its potentialities, its doubts, and one’s capacity to act; it inserts itself into any projected action as the matter of time. What potential does popular music with its notorious obsession with the past hold for the imagination of future communities? And how can, in a most general sense, Pop help us think about this? In other words: What are the domains and possibilities of »political« art today?) 17.00

PREOCCUPATIONS - New Material LP (Preoccupations’ songs have always worked through themes of creation, destruction, and futility, and they’ve always done it with singular post-punk grit. The textures are evocative and razor-sharp. The wire is always a live one. But while that darker side may have been well-explored, that’s not quite the same as it being fully, intensely lived. This time it was, and the result is ’New Material’, a collection that broadens and deepens Preoccupations to a true mastery of their sound. In it lies the difference between witnessing a car crash and crashing your own, between jumping into an ocean and starting to swallow the water.  ) 19.00

SKULLFLOWER - Werecat Powers Of The Crossroads At Midnight LP (Matthew Bower and Samantha Davies of Skullflower on Werecat Powers Of The Crossroads At Midnight: "The continuation of the audio trilogy concerning the Darkness of Aegypt: the shadow stuff from whence dark dreams come. The Triad: dark, light and the animating serpent power are delineated by the Egyptian Gods Set, Horus and the Apep serpent. The second parting of the ways, lord of the crossroads, the double horizon, the xroads of day and night, the mauve zone, the death posture. We brought back: a twilight mechanism, and hymns to the charnel ground, ashes, jackals and the bulto hyaena, pacing the departure lounges of abandoned airports.“) 25.00

YO LA TENGO - there´s a riot going on DLP (matador - There’s a riot going on. You don’t need me, or Yo La Tengo, to tell you that. These are dark times, in our heads as much as in the streets. It’s easy to lose contact with the ground. Confusion and anxiety intrude into daily life and cause you to lose your compass. There are times that call for anthems, something to lift you out of your slump and put fire in your feet. And sometimes what is needed is a balm, a sound that will wrap around you and work out the knots in your neck. For Yo La Tengo, this is a slow-motion action painting. Ira Kaplan, Georgia Hubley, and James McNew did it all themselves, in their rehearsal studio, with no engineer and no complicated equipment (John McEntire later assisted in mixing). They did not rehearse together beforehand; they turned on the recorder and let things coalesce. Songs came together over long stretches, sometimes as much as a year going by between parts. You’d never guess this, since the layers are joined with such a liquid brush. You’d imagine most of the songs had sprung forth whole, since they will enter your head that way. Within two listens you will be powerless to resist the magnetic draw of “Shades of Blue,” will involuntarily hear “She May, She Might” on your internal jukebox first thing in the morning and “Let’s Do It Wrong” late at night. While there’s a riot going on, Yo La Tengo will remind you what it’s like to dream. The sound burbles and washes and ows and billows. If records were dedicated to the cardinal elements, this one would be water. There are shimmery hazes, spectral rumbles, a ash of backward masking. You are there. And even if your mind is not unclouded--shaken, misdirected, out of words and out of time--you can still float, ride the waves of an ocean deeper than your worries, above the sound and above the Sound.) 25.00

V/A - Musique Expérimentale LP (cacophonic - Further concrète explorations from the second generation of forward-thinking sonic auteurs that would push the boundaries of experimental music known collectively as the Groupe de Recherches Musicales - founded by the father of musique concrète, Pierre Schaeffer - which has in uenced generations of artists across the world. Undoubtedly one of the most in uential experimental and electroacoustic musicians, Pierre Schaeffer is also credited as being the father of the theory of musique concrete as well as later coining the term itself. Having found a job in 1936 at Radiodiffusion Francaise (later Radiodiffusion-Tèlèvision Francaise or RTF) as an engineer, Schaeffer developed a newly found interest in music and with the blessing of his superiors made the most of his access to the Radiodiffusion Francaise studios, utilising his abilities as an engineer to experiment with sound whilst collaborating with musicians and composers that passed through the station’s hallowed doors. In 1942 Schaeffer and in uential theatre director, producer and actor Jacques Copeau founded the Studio d’Essai (renamed Club d’Essai in 1946) as part of RTF in order to experiment with radiophonic techniques. Drawing on the works of French filmmaker, critic and novelist Jean Epstein, Schaeffer would occupy his time and his mind with the manner in which sound recordings “revealed what was hidden in the act of basic acoustic listening” and in 1948 formally set about his research in ernest – the results of which were presented as a series of studies known as Cinq études de bruits (Five Studies of Noises) during a concert in Paris.) 21.00

V/A - Spiritual Jazz Vol. 8 Japan: Part One DLP (jazzman - The latest in Jazzman’s jazz-diaspora compilations takes the listener to Japan. Not a country known in the West for its interpretation of ‘America’s Classical Music’, Japan was in fact the biggest per-capita consumer of jazz LPs throughout the 1980s. The eight offerings here demonstrate how the mantle of spiritual jazz luminaries like John and Alice Coltrane was taken on by the nation’s musicians. As such, we get swinging versions of the standards (Tadao Hayashi’s ‘My Favourite Things’), unique syntheses of funk and koto (‘Positive and Negative’, Minoru Muraoka) and noisy explorations (‘Sun In The East’ by New Direction For the Arts).) 35.00

V/A - Spiritual Jazz Vol. 8 Japan: Part Two DLP (jazzman - For the latest instalment in their long-running series chronicling the story of "modal, progressive and esoteric" jazz, the experts at Jazzman Records have turned their attention to the under-appreciated Japanese spiritual jazz scene. While Japan has always had a thriving jazz scene, many of the greatest records have never been released outside of the country, making this double-album - the second of two parts - something of an essential purchase. There's certainly plenty to enjoy, from the riotous brilliance of Four Units' fine revolutionary cover of folk standard "Scarborough Fair" (complete with killer drum solos) and the high-octane, rock and Blaxploitation funk-influenced madness of Keitaro Miho's "Kikazaru", to the frenzied free-jazz brilliance of Kiyoshi Sugimoto's "Babalonyian Wind“.) 35.00

RADIUM GRRRLS - Pro Choice 7“ (adagio830 - Swedish squad Radium Grrrls, featuring members of Totem Skin and Livet Som Insats, bring their intense brand of hardcore punk on their debut 7” "Pro Choice": one brimming with powerviolence outbursts, infused with the attitude of the riot grrrl movement and haunted by the righteous personal and political rage of the Radium Girls in songs like ”Pro Choice” and ”Grrrls Like Us”.) 6.00

LP

ABDULLAH IBRAHIM - African Piano LP (ECM - There was classical music. There was jazz. There even was rock. Then there was one record company that didn’t care. ECM devoted itself to all kinds of music, as long as it was good and helped shape the story of our listening. The label is pleased to reissue seven historical albums, all mastered from the original analog sources on 180 gram vinyl as part of their Re:solutions series. Follow the great arc of music on these early ECM productions, with works for orchestra and improvisers, guitar duo, solo piano, and jazz quartet. Sometimes a musical message is so urgent that questions of recording quality are almost beside the point. Informally recorded in 1969 in a noisy club – Copenhagen’s famous Jazzhus Montmartre – the flavor of this album is ‘documentary’ rather than luxuriantly hi-fidelity, yet the essence of Abdullah Ibrahim's communication comes through loud and clear.  The listener is drawn into the robust rhythms of his solo piano style, as he re-examines the history of jazz from a South African perspective, with echoes of songs of the townships, and vamps that hint of Monk and Duke and much more. African Piano was a highly influential album, and it has lost none of its power.) 25.00

AMEN DUNES - Freedom LP (sacred bones - With every record, Damon McMahon aka Amen Dunes has transformed, and Freedom is the project’s boldest leap yet. Enlisting a powerful set of collaborators that included Parker Kindred (Antony & The Johnsons, Jeff Buckley) on drums, keyboardist Jordi Wheeler, Chris Coady (Beach House) as producer, and Delicate Steve on guitars, Freedom was recorded at the legendary Electric Lady Studios in NYC and at Sunset Sound in L.A. All told it took three years to make. On the surface, Freedom is a reflection on growing up, childhood friends who ended up in prison or worse, male identity, McMahon’s father, and his mother, who was diagnosed with terminal cancer at the beginning of recording. The characters that populate the musical world of Freedom are a colorful mix of reality and fantasy: father and mother, Amen Dunes, teenage glue addicts and Parisian drug dealers, ghosts above the plains, fallen surf heroes, vampires, thugs from Naples and thugs from Houston, the emperor of Rome, Jews, Jesus, Tashtego, Perseus, even McMahon himself. Each character portrait is a representation of McMahon, of masculinity, and of his past.) 19.00

CURSIVE - The Storms of Early Summer: Semantics of Song LP (Lim. Ed.) (Limited edition, 180g LP is clear with white smoke swirl. After almost 20 years, Cursive's second album, The Storms of Early Summer: Semantics of Song, has been remastered and will finally be available on vinyl for the first time in the US. Remastering done by Ed Brooks (Mastodon, Minus the Bear, Fleet Foxes, Pearl Jam) and faithful reproduction of the artwork by Grammy winning graphic designer, Zack Nipper. As early as 1995, the original members of Cursive -- Tim Kasher on guitar and vocals, Clint Schnase on drums, Matt Maginn on bass, and Stephen Pederson on guitar -- began work on their newly christened project, experimenting with elements of indie rock and eclectic post-hardcore to fashion a unique sound. The Omaha, Nebraska-based four-piece came out of existing friendships and some of the members' previous work together in Slowdown Virginia, making the musical partnership a logical idea from the start. They debuted with the "Disruption" 7" on the local friend-run label Saddle Creek and shortly released a second 7", "Sucker and Dry," on New York-based Zero Hour. Both recordings spotlighted Kasher's uniquely powerful voice along with the group's consistently thundering rhythm section and jagged guitars. Cursive went even further on their debut full-length, Such Blinding Stars for Starving Eyes. Split-released by Crank! A Record Company and New York's Interplanetary Truckers Union in 1997, the LP received high acclaim and put the band on the musical map.) 20.00

CURSIVE - Such Blinding Stars for Starving Eyes LP (Lim. Ed.) (Limited edition, 180g LP is blue with white starburst. After 20 years, Cursive's first record, Such Blinding Stars for Starving Eyes, has finally been remastered and reissued on glorious colored vinyl. Remastering done by Ed Brooks (Mastodon, Minus the Bear, Fleet Foxes, Pearl Jam) and reproduction of the artwork by Grammy winning graphic designer Zack Nipper, this is a lovingly reissued album sure to please Cursive fans new and old as well attract new listeners.) 20.00

HARAKIRI FOR THE SKY - Arson DLP (art of - Gatefold Double LP with golden UV spot laque and 16 pages booklet in 30x30cm with illustrations and lyrics. Mystical, icily and emotional: In the focus of the music of HARAKIRI FOR THE SKY stands the dreamy, the picturesque aspect, the melancholy joy of Black Metal and the tension of Post-Rock. ) 25.00

HARAKIRI FOR THE SKY - Arson DELUXE DLP (Art of - Hardbook Special Packaging Deluxe Double LP with golden hot stamping foil, glued-in 16 pages booklet with illustrations and lyrics and one exclusive bonus song. Mystical, icily and emotional: In the focus of the music of HARAKIRI FOR THE SKY stands the dreamy, the picturesque aspect, the melancholy joy of Black Metal and the tension of Post-Rock. ) 35.00

HORN - Retrograd LP (Riding high on the critical acclaim afforded its seventh album, Turm Am Hang - released in early 2017 on vinyl LP by IRON BONEHEAD - the one-man HORN returns with a six-song/27-minute strike of pure pagan epicness. Since 2002, mainman Nerrath has been steadily perfecting a classicist, almost-medieval style of black metal bound to pagan roots. Staunchly solitary to the present day, the initial drive behind HORN was to create nature-themed black metal, focusing on the relation of man and nature in a regional context. The band's old material, being mainly concerned with detailed descriptions of nature and incorporating rather upbeat, folk-influenced riffing, has made way for more sinister themes and soundscapes over the years. What has remained throughout the course of seven studio albums is the distinct "HORN sound," featuring siren-like lead guitars, classic black metal-styled vocals as well as clean chorals, and a serious folkloristic approach far from the jolly drunken Viking tunes celebrated these days. ) 15.00

JACKIE SHANE - any other way DLP (numero - back in stock - Recognized by genre aficionados as one of the greatest singers and most riveting stage presences in soul music, Jackie Shane has remained largely unknown outside Toronto, where her career briefly flowered in the 1960s. Ms. Shane is a star without parallel—a pioneer of transgender rights born in a male body, living her entire life as a woman at a time when to do so seemed unthinkable. Any Other Way is the first artist-approved collection of Ms. Shane’s work, collecting all six of her 45s and every highlight from the legendary 1967 live sessions at the Sapphire Tavern, including three mind blowing, previously-unreleased tracks. Any Other Way marks Jackie Shane’s first communication with the public in nearly half a century. Rob Bowman's extensive liner notes tell, for the first time ever, Ms. Shane’s story in her own words, copiously illustrated with never-before-seen pictures from a career and life unlike any other.) 28.00

ONEIDA - Romance DLP (joyful noise - Oneida has been a cornerstone of the Brooklyn underground for nearly two decades. Always evolving, the group has been a beacon of musical exploration and enthralling unpredictability, gaining legendary status among heads that know and expanding the limits of what it means to be a rock band. With a discography spanning over a dozen full-lengths, plus live releases, EPs, singles, and limited one-offs, Oneida has demonstrated a mastery of collective improvisation, off-kilter songwriting, complex composition, and everything in between. In 2011 Oneida lost its home base, its studio dubbed the Ocropolis in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, due to the pervasive gentrification and over-development of the neighborhood that was once a thriving arts community. After watching the Monster Island building that housed the Ocropolis transform into a pile of rubble, the band began an intense period of exploration and discovery, retreating from the studio in favor of the stage, and birthing a panoply of limited, uncompromising releases that documented the band’s continuously unfolding journey. Six years after the release of A List of the Burning Mountains, the final emission from the Ocropolis, the band will release their newest studio creation Romance, their first album for Joyful Noise Recordings and a record marked by wild eclecticism, even for a group known for its shape-shifting nature. Recorded over several years in various locales, the 11 songs on Romance are built around deeply developed long-arc rhythm/phase concepts, noise, yearning, blind guitar rage, longing, the lurch of dying electronics, and a multi-modal embrace of human fallibility and artifice. From the crackling synth-led opener “Economy Travel” to the expansive 18-minute epic “Shepherd’s Axe,” Romance is an album in constant flux. On “Bad Habit” the band employs phasing between organ and guitar to great, disorienting effect, while the primitive riffs of “Cockfight” offer a contrasting vision of rock minimalism. Listen closely on “Lay of the Land” and you will hear constant rhythmic development, with drummer Kid Millions eschewing repetition in favor of morphing patterns of hi-hat and snare. As with all mystery, Romance reveals more through closer attention and multiple listens.) 21.00

STRAFPLANET - Freizeitstress LP (contraszt - STRAFPLANET from Graz / Austria deliver a punishing outburst of female fronted hardcore drenched with noisy feedback and oozing with rage. Fast paced and in-your-face hardcore punk that's filled with squealing guitars, vicious shrieks, down-tuned bass, and blasting drums. Think of Punch and No Statik to give you a hint. What a fucking rager!) 12.00

V/A - Eccentric Soul: The Saru Label DLP (numero - The 20th volume of our flagship Eccentric Soul series has all the boxes checked: Gun-toting, skip-tracing record producers, child stars, rip-offs, the “World’s Greatest Bail Bondsman,” swindles, soaring falsettos, and a dwindling rust-belt cityscape offering mere glimpses of hope before the record industry escaped for the coasts. Helmed by the O’Jays Bobby Massey, Saru was a creative vortex that pulled Cuyahoga County’s greatest talent in, making a strong case for Cleveland to contend with Detroit, Philly, and Memphis as America’s soul music’s capital. Deluxe double album includes 25 obscure and unknown sides from the Out of Sights, the Elements, Pandella Kelly, David Peoples, Sir Stanley, the Ponderosa Twins + 1, Ba-Roz, Bobby Dukes, and of course, the O’Jays.) 30.00
