7“

APPRAISE - Leap Of Faith 7“ (refuse - Appraise on their new release "Leap Of Faith" continues to expand and develop the sound of their LP with the music becoming heavier and faster. In this new chapter as a band, Appraise is complimented with lyrics and personal expression focused on acceptance, sadness, fear, rage and doubt.) 6.00

WASTE - Executioner 7“ (refuse - Unapologetic straight edge - refuse to compromise! This Göteborg, Sweden based band filled the void in their local scene after the demise of bands like Anchor and Stay Hungry. Some members have been involved in bands like Lose The Life and The Hammer. Their hard, heavy, and fast hardcore sounds like a combination of classic 80's HC with the influence of bands like No Warning, Trapped Under Ice and Cruel Hand. Their lyrics are political, leftist-oriented, and see straight edge itself as a political position.) 6.00

LP

DEAFHEAVEN - Ordinary Corrupt Human Love DLP (colored) (epitaph - 180gr colored vinyl Deafheaven's new album, "Ordinary Corrupt Human Love," finds them working with old friends again. The Jack Shirley-produced and Nick Steinhardt (of Touche Amore)-art directed collection gets its title from Graham Greene's novel "The End Of The Affair," referencing a moment when someone is looking for love, in all of its imperfection and simple beauty. This sentiment is carried throughout the hazy, yearning romanticism of the record with song titles and words as sumptuous as the sounds around them.) 23.00

EITR - Hädanfärden LP (nordvis - EITR is the new brainchild of Nachtzeit, the man behind ambient black metal project Lustre. Representing the first recording of this new adventure, Hädanfärden takes us back to the time of the Norse gods and the death of Balder, masterminded by the ever devious Loki. As the waves of mischievous, playful synth wash over our senses we are transported to Asgard and any misgivings over the potential of an album without lyrics to tell a story are dispelled. Are we now Loki or merely observers in his game of trickery and cunning? Hädanfärden could just be the album we all wished Dauði Baldrs could have been. We take the form of the old woman with Loki as he tricks Friggr into telling him the one substance that can harm Balder. We feel the breeze and air of expectation as he strides with the branch of the little mistletoe bush back to the hall in Galdsheim. The contrast between the air of joviality of the masses and the dark, conniving nature of Loki is tangible and the theatre of it all captured in simple sonic form. There is ancient magic at play here, no doubt. The spirit of the Norse gods and their tales is alive and well in EITR’s softly lilting music – lulling us, a la Loki into a false sense of peace and security. All the while Balder is imprisoned by Hel, aided by the cave-dwelling giantess Thokk, or should we say…Loki.) 25.00

ESCAPE ISM - The Lost Record LP (merge - Only ten months after he provided us with an Introduction to Escape-ism, mythic rock ’n’ roll provocateur / theorist / revolutionary Ian Svenonius is back as Escape-ism with The Lost Record, a classic destined to bewitch the minds, hearts, and dancing shoes of any rock ’n’ roll fan who happens to discover it, for as long as such creatures exist. Without the high-octane hype machine of the mind-control minstrels who hypnotize the hapless through the mass media, The Lost Record is bound for inevitable obscurity, but—with its timeless tunes, poignant message, and innovative sound—rediscovery and immortal status is equally assured! The Lost Record, being what it is, has enormous selling potential. Music enthusiasts will be thrilled to be the ones clever and kind enough to have rescued this platter from oblivion. Recorded in four different studios—Gaucho in Los Angeles, Flat Black in Iowa, Tonal Park in Takoma Park, MD, and at Club Blasé in DC—the record is the culmination of humanity’s attempt at something poignant, perverse, and poetically imperfect.) 18.00

HEATSEEKER - Infected Society LP (refsue - Heatseeker is spitting out 12"s of phlegm right in society’s face. Society's norms are getting openly offensive, so this band has an angry and offensive response to all the bullshit. Raw and stomping hardcore - the result of aggression towards living in a fucked up political reality. This is your sountrack as you bounce off the walls in solitary confinement.) 12.00

HELIOS - veriditas LP (ghostly international - On respective edges of America - Oregon and Maine - Keith Kenniff records quiet music at night. "When things are calmer," he says. "My mind is less distracted when I know that everything is dark outside." For over a decade, such has been the mode - nocturnal, unrushed, using the same mini-cassette recorder, "a lovely little imperfect way to treat sounds" - for one of the country's most understated composers. Kenniff has housed dozens of ambient releases under the name Helios since 2004, alongside post-classical output as Goldmund, shoegaze pop with his wife Hollie as Mint Julep, and commissions for film and television. It is a reliably transportive body of work that's earned Kenniff a cult following, and a genuine modesty that's kept him on the fringes, right where he prefers, in the dark. Veriditas, the sixth Helios full-length, introduces unusual shapes and landscapes to the Helios catalog. Whereas past songs have followed traditional structures - discernable b ell curves with beginnings, arcs, and ends - the focus here is texture and harmony. "I wanted to explore emotionality within something more static." Synth-tones radiate and hum as vignettes, often crisp and cloudless, other times smeared to a queasy Boards of Canada-like unease.) 20.00

JACK ROSE - Luck In The Valley LP (thrill jockey - LP pressing in an old-style tip-on jacket with a hand-pasted letterpressed cover. A native of Virginia and resident of Philadelphia since 1998, Jack Rose first rose to prominence with the drone/noise/folk unit, Pelt.  Pelt can be counted among the early influential new music underground bands such as UN, No Neck Blues Band, Charalambides, Tower Recordings and Six Organs of Admittance.  Rose recorded and toured with the band up until 2006.  Rose released his first solo LP in 2002, "Red Horse, White Mule", of post-Takoma, American primitive guitar. Along with the influences of John Fahey and Robbie Basho, Rose also incorporated North Indian classical, early American blues, bluegrass and minimalism into his singular style. 2005 saw the release of his fourth LP, "Kensington Blues", which incorporated all of the aforementioned influences and his playing/composing fully flowered. That LP is now considered a classic of contemporary guitar music. In 2008 and 2009 Rose released "Dr. Ragtime and Pals" and "Jack Rose and the Black Twig Pickers" respectively. Those recordings featured many additional players like Glenn Jones, Micah Smaldone, Harmonica Dan and the Black Twig Pickers. The songs drew heavily on pre-war influences, either written by Rose or were his arrangements of early American classics. "Luck in the Valley " will be the third album in this set of recordings that Rose jokingly refers to as his "Ditch Trilogy". Rose continues his exploration of pre-war American music with a set brand new material featuring the Twigs, Jones, Harmonica Dan and Hans Chew along with a handful of solo pieces. This recording set out to capture the energy and feel of the classic three-track shack recordings by the Wray Brothers and Mordicai Jones. "Luck In The Valley" was written and recorded over a period of nine months off the road, an unusually long time for Rose to be at home and woodshedding. The album finds Rose employing new themes and techniques that haven't appeared on previous releases.) 22.00

OLIVER COATES - Shelley's on Zenn​-​La LP (rvng - Pivotal solo cellist and producer Oliver Coates (LCO, Apartment House) proceeds collaborations with Mica Levi and Radiohead with Shelley’s on Zenn-La, an indefatigably endearing 3rd solo album, new for RVNG Intl. We can hardly think of many artists beyond Oliver’s own circle who can meld dance music with avant-electronic and classical instrumental expression quite like Oliver does here. From the raw electric buzz and spattered breaks underlined with layered cello in Faraday Movement, to the abraded BoC-like downbeats of Lime, thru to wayward disco treks like Charlev, Analord-style braindance in Norrin Radd Dreaming, and the final swoon between wide-open string composition and balletic IDM in Perfect Apple with Silver Mark, Oliver is making wonderful music unconstricted by convention, but patently happy to play with it.) 18.00

PIG DESTROYER - Head Cage LP (relapse - After six long, harsh years of absence, the mighty PIG DESTROYER have reassembled to eradicate eardrums and split skulls with their highly anticipated sixth full-length opus, entitled Head Cage (named after a grisly medieval torture device). A visceral vortex of animalistic rage and extreme sonic brilliance, Head Cage is a true work of extreme metal art, that with the addition of a bass player, is hands down their most dynamic and heaviest recording to date. Across twelve tracks, PIG DESTROYER weave together harrowing tales of philosophical dualities, touching on mortality and depression, fear and violence, and the darkest complexities of the human condition, all told through the distorted lens of delightfully transgressive vocalist/lyricist JR Hayes. Musically, the band continues to push the boundaries of metal, grindcore, noise and punk, ramping up the intensity and leaving you bludgeoned in a state of utter shock, all in less than 33 minutes. Head Cage was recorded by guitarist Scott Hull at Visceral Sound Studios, mixed and mastered by Will Putney (Exhumed, Every Time I Die, Body Count) and features striking artwork by Mark McCoy (Full of Hell, Nothing) along with guest vocal appearances by Agoraphobic Nosebleed's Richard Johnson and Kat Katz plus Full Of Hell's Dylan Walker. PLAY AT MAXIMUM VOLUME!) 23.00

SUFJAN STEVENS - The Avalanche: Outtakes & Extras From The Illinois Album DLP (The little secret behind the Illinois record is that it was originally conceived as a double album, culminating in a musical collage of nearly 50 songs. But as the project began to develop into an unwieldy epic, common sense weighed in—as did the opinions of others—and the project was cut in half. But as 2005 came to a close, Sufjan returned to the old, forsaken songs on his 8-track like a grandfather remembering his youth, indulging in old journals and newspaper clippings. What he uncovered went beyond the merits of nostalgia; it was more like an ensemble of capricious friends and old acquaintances wearing party outfits, waiting to be let in at the front door, for warm drinks and interesting conversation. Among them were Saul Bellow, Ann Landers, Adlai Stevenson, and a brief cameo from Henry Darger’s Vivian Girls. The gathering that followed would become the setting for the songs on The Avalanche: Outtakes and Extras from the Illinois Album.) 25.00

YOUNG MOUNTAIN - lost tree LP (miss the stars - Swedish Young Mountain are back with their long awaited debut "Lost Tree“. The 5 piece from Gothenburg wanted to create something that was hard to show to people due to its personal nature. It wasn't just a concept for the band, but it was also a form of therapy. The hope was to give the listener a slight insight into "Identity Disturbance" without connecting it to specific people in their lives. It is sadly something that to this day is taboo to talk about in most rooms. To mask this reality the band built a fictitious story called "Lost Tree." It is a story about shifting between what seems to be several realities. The lyrics are based on real-life situations and reoccurring dreams that the band have had over a time span of 3 years. The album should play out as a soundtrack to the story, and therefore Young Mountain put minimal constraints on what it should sound like. Inspiration has been drawn from ambient electronic music to indie-pop to Post-metal. It's both sad and happy at the same time. It's a blend of thousands of emotions fighting for the spotlight actually. Whatever we felt would drive the narrative forward would be considered ok as long as it sounded like it was "Young Mountain.“) 13.00


MAGAZINES

WIRE - #415 | September 2018 MAG (Inside this issue: Low: Over 20 plus years Low have established themselves as unique song stylists. But what drove the trio to bury their songs beneath layers of electronics on their latest album Double Negative? By Abi Bliss Music And Mental Health: An innovative new project in South West England aims to help residential patients articulate their ideas of freedom through experimental approaches to sound. By Trevor Barre Klaus Schulze: As a member of Tangerine Dream, Ash Ra Tempel and Cosmic Jokers, and most crucially as a solo artist, the German synthesist has helped shape the sound of electronic music.

7“

CEMENT SHOES - A Peace Product Of The Usa 7“ (feel it - Get in on the crumbling ground floor with the debut 7" single from Richmond's own CEMENT SHOES. Following a promising 2017 demo on the Loki Label, heralded as a "meat and potatoes and LSD" hardcore punk production, the Shoes turn in two fresh cuts on this 45. Furiously scratching away at the ever-underwhelming state of contemporary hardcore punk, the principle songwriters of BROWN SUGAR, FRIED EGG and HAIRCUT intervene to bring us a robust and epic pairing of tracks. Consider it a simultaneous toast to the sense of humor and originality of first wave hardcore/punk and a roast of the ever fashionable and generic trappings of the aughts. Each copy comes packaged in a unique, hand-painted glue pocket sleeve with lyric insert and digital download.) 8.00

LITHICS - Photograph, You Of 7“ (This double A-sided 45 from Portland’s LITHICS is a prerequisite for your next mutant disco. Precise, serrated pop, each one of these songs is a tiny world in its own, a locked groove you could inhabit forever, a million tiny clashes. Taking cues from CAPTAIN BEEFHEART, BUSH TETRAS, PYLON et al, this is a perfect companion to their new full-length on Kill Rock Stars. Limited to 500 copies on black vinyl.) 8.00

PREDATOR - no face 7“ (total punk - After a few years of relative silence Atlanta’s main purveyors of mean and lean punk, PREDATOR, are back on the scene. In the downtime they have managed to further tighten their already razor sharp sound offering their two best tracks yet. Dark, minimal and brooding with buzzsaw guitars and muscled delivery. Predator are almost hypnotic in their simplicity, but still manage a full and powerful sound. 100% TOTAL PUNK! Edition of 500 copies.) 8.00

PROTOMARTYR / SPRAYPAINT - split 7“ (monfous - "The first time PROTOMARTYR was on our radar had to be in 2013 when Can’t Stop The Bleeding invited them to play at Beerland for SXSW. We’ve been big ole fans since. Over the years they’ve been nice enough to play a couple of our SXSW shows, and then they let Spray Paint open for them on some of their early tour dates. It was on one of these tours that the concept for this 7″ came to be. Each band would record an instrumental and send it to the other band to add vocals. SPRAY PAINT plays and JOE CASEY sings and then the other way around. We think it’s pretty good, and we hope you do too.“) 10.00

VIOLENCE CREEPS - Nephew Melting 7“ (total punk -Oakland’s VIOLENCE CREEPS aren’t ones to mince words and on their new single they hit their adversaries square in the throat. Now flanked with a new rhythm section The Creeps haven’t lost any steam. In fact they have plenty to blow because this is them at their angriest. Taking on a certain local mustachioed garage rocker on the A side, and Oakland’s influx of tech bros on the flip you can hear the seething hatred in AMBER's voice. Flanked by the spastic screeching guitar of SHRIMP RIPPER and the busy bouncy bass interplay you’ve come to expect from VC. This is them at their best and I hope the rumors that this is the end of the line are just that. 100% TOTAL PUNK! Edition of 500 copies.) 8.00


LP

ADULT - This Behavior LP (dias - "Over the course of the last two decades, Detroit-based duo ADULT. (NICOLA KUPERUS and ADAM LEE MILLER) have released six albums and nineteen EPs and singles across some of our favorite labels: Mute, Ghostly International, Thrill Jockey, Clone Records, Third Man Records, and their own label, the revered Ersatz Audio. November 1998 marked their first release: the five-song 12" 'Dispassionate Furniture.' This September, twenty years later, Dais Records is proud to announce ADULT.’s seventh full length album: This Behavior. The album began as 23 demos written and recorded in a remote cabin in the woods of Northern Michigan during the dead of winter. In total isolation, and with a reduced amount of gear (a modified version of their live setup) on the cabin’s kitchen table, the duo were completely immersed in an incessant inescapable studio of their own making—looping, repetitive analogue sequences grinding away day and night. At the end of the intense demo session, a handful of peers were enlisted by the band for the difficult task of paring down the demos into the final album. The result is 10 tracks of uncompromising dark electronics, showcasing ADULT.’s return to aggressive and energetic dancefloor mastery.) 22.00

ADZALAAN - Into Vermilion Mirrors LP (Adzalaan's debut LP Into Vermilion Mirrors thrusts the project beyond a standalone solo working of R, but refocuses Vrasubatlat as a whole to accept the entity as one of the cabal's core focuses. Into Vermilion Mirrors manages to meander across many different forms of black/death metal while maintaining a progressive edge and allowing one to delve deeper into the darkness of the sonic offering. As the twentieth release of Vrasubatlat, Into Vermilion Mirrors shows that the force of the group is shifting and growing stronger. Succumb to the reflection, and engage the depths.) 20.00

ALI TOURE - Farka LP (sonafrica - Legendary Malian blues guitarist and singer Ali Farka Toure's first LP!  Dead stock reissues we have just a few boxes of.  Ali Farka Toure more or less invented the genre of Mali blues.  In Mali, he was considered a supernatural being more than a human. Listening to his early LP's you could imagine why. This LP, originally released in 1976, is as hypnotic and pure a record as you could ever get.  A true masterpiece.  Not a lot of these available, so get them while you can!  ) 20.00

ALI FARKA TOURE - Ali Toure Farka LP (sonafrica - Legendary Malian blues guitarist and singer Ali Farka Toure's fourth LP!  Dead stock reissues we have just a few boxes of.  Ali Farka Toure more or less invented the genre of Mali blues.  In Mali, he was considered a supernatural being more than a human. Listening to his early LP's you could imagine why. This LP, originally released in 1977, is as hypnotic and pure a record as you could ever get.  A true masterpiece.  Not a lot of these available, so get them while you can!  ) 20.00

ALI FARKA TOURE - Dit Fark LP (  Legendary Malian blues guitarist and singer Ali Farka Toure's fifth LP!  Dead stock reissues we have just a few boxes of.  Ali Farka Toure more or less invented the genre of Mali blues.  In Mali, he was considered a supernatural being more than a human. Listening to his early LP's you could imagine why. This LP, originally released in 1979, is as hypnotic and pure a record as you could ever get.  A true masterpiece.  Not a lot of these available, so get them while you can!  ) 20.00

ALI FARKA TOURE - Special Biennale Du Mali: Le Jeune Chansonnier Du Mali LP (sonafrica - Legendary Malian blues guitarist and singer Ali Farka Toure's second LP!  Dead stock reissues we have just a few boxes of.  Ali Farka Toure more or less invented the genre of Mali blues.  In Mali, he was considered a supernatural being more than a human. Listening to his early LP's you could imagine why. This LP, originally released in 1976, is as hypnotic and pure a record as you could ever get.  A true masterpiece.  Not a lot of these available, so get them while you can! ) 20.00

BETA BOYS - Late Nite Acts LP (feel it - Following a string of 7"s for Total Punk, Digital Regress, Neck Chop, and Lumpy—the once Kansas City, now Olympia-based BETA BOYS return with their finest work to date; the aptly-titled Late Nite Acts LP. A strikingly focused and sonically refined tour de force, these ten new tracks pair the band's Midwestern hardcore roots with a darker, midtempo burn. A pure punk sound if there ever was; precisely capturing the boredom, depression, and ever-present sense of hopelessness spread across modern America. Beta Boys have truly upped the ante on this full length; an album absolutely brimming with stellar production, first-rate songwriting, and unapologetically punk flavor. Packaged in a full-color jacket with artwork from Beta Boys' own HANK DURANGO, plus lyric insert, hype sticker, and digital download.) 18.00

BOBBY BEAUSOLEIL - Voodoo Shivaya LP (ajna - A deeply personal musical statement from Bobby BeauSoleil, a 2-disk concept album featuring a mix of vocal and instrumental tracks tracking the meandering path of his journey to spiritual understanding. Among the vocal tracks performed by BeauSoleil are both covers and original songs.. A lavish triple gatefold cover with metallic printing integrates evocative photographs by Nicholas Syracuse with calligraphy by Timo Ketola. This album was recorded at Oregon State Penitentiary between 2001 and 2015.  A deluxe record tribute to redemption and the human spirit. ) 31.00

CHROMATICS - camera LP (italians duo it better - “I Want To Be With You…But Sometimes Life Becomes Too Real…I Want To See The Things In My Heart I Know I Feel.” The opening track is a love song written from the perspective of the camera, asking to be held up to see the world through the eyes of its user. CHROMATICS’ dense electronics are anchored by the intimacy of RUTH RADELET's vocals. Framed by negative space, this is pop music from the blurry hours. She softly sings, “I write a song in my head, pretend that I’m lying in your arms.” The music is minimal and bare, layered with sparse percussion. The Camera EP features unreleased material, including a haunting take on Dear Tommy’s title track and the midnight mood of “Flashback To Forever.” Eight tracks in all.) 22.00

COLD BEAT - A Simple Reflection LP (dark entries - COLD BEAT is a San Francisco-based quartet fronted by HANNAH LEW (synths, vocals) with KYLE KING (synths, guitar), LUCIANO TALPINI AITA (synths) and SEAN MONAGHAN (guitar). Formed in 2013 the band has released three albums and two EPs. A Simple Reflection is a 7-song collection of Eurythmics covers, yet feels just as personal as any of their original material. While digging through a collection of 12"s for her record shop Contact Records, Lew stumbled across the earliest Eurythmics B-sides and was floored. This lead to the discovery of their debut album In The Garden. Annie Lennox’s abstract and poetic lyrics really struck a chord with Hannah. What had started out as a single cover quickly snowballed into a full blown obsession. The synth and drum programming resonated with her songwriting process, so reimagining them was very creatively fulfilling. The covers on this EP are simultaneously dynamic and atmospheric post-punk that plays to Lew's ethereal vocals and King’s crystalline guitar. All songs have been mixed by MIKEY YOUNG (Total Control) and mastered by GEORGE HORN at Fantasy Studios. The record is housed in a jacket designed by ELOISE LEIGH, which features pink and purple clouds that evoke a dreamy softness and DIY playfulness and photos Lew in her best Lennox-inspired drag. Each copy includes a postcard with photos and notes. “Sometimes a song seems to sing just for you, as if someone knows your most inner thoughts and feelings and has found a way to describe them effortlessly”—Hannah Lew) 16.00

CYRNAI - 1980-1990 6xLP BOX (dakr entires - Dark Entries reissues the first 4 full-lengths from Carolyn Fok / CYRNAI, an Asian-American female solo artist from the Bay Area. The 6xLP box set contains all of Carolyn's officially released music as CYRNAI between 1980-1990, as well as bonus materials. Most of these songs will see their first vinyl appearance ever in a deluxe edition limited boxed set (333 copies). Remastered by George Horn, the set features an exclusive 48-page booklet with photos, quotes, interviews and liner notes written by Carolyn and introduction by Greg Allen (author of ‘Klaus Schulze, Electronic Music Legend’). Over 70 songs, 4 hours of music, spread across six records plus an exclusive bonus 7” of cover songs by The Cure and Gang Of Four all packaged in a black matte wrap box with crimson red foil stamping.  Carolyn’s adventures in sound began with recording stories on a tape recorder at age 9 in 1976. A short time later, exploring the scattering of musical instruments and effects units her father left lying around the family home. She became especially fascinated by his TEAC reel-to-reel recorder that set off a lifelong fascination with sound design. By the age of 16 Carolyn had become inspired by industrial electronic act Cabaret Voltaire, as well as anarcho-punks Crass. Creating the stage name CYRNAI, a rearranging alphabet of Carolyn Fok, she played in several Bay Area bands including Treason, A State Of Mind, Trial and Rhythm & Noise between 1983 and 1991. Her debut release as CYRNAI, 1985’s 12” EP ‘Charred Blossoms’, followed by the cassette albums ‘Parts of The Insomnic Wheel’ in 1986, ‘Hypno-Seizure’ in 1987 and two versions of ‘To Subtle-Drive’ in 1989/1990.  Despite having been featured in publications including Electronic Musician, Keyboard and with a long term association with Industrial music, Carolyn has remained an intensely private musician, artist and writer until now. However, she has launched an ambitious project that involves releasing her vast archive of music as a 'memoir’ via her website memoirofsound.com. Having spent extensive time in the studio amassing around 100 albums worth of electronic and experimental music, field recordings, collaborations, band projects and more, these are now being released in one place. “Her time is beyond due to be recognized, represented and attributed for her contributions to experimental analogue culture with sounds still fresher than tomorrow.” Eloise Leigh (New Age Rage, Berlin Community Radio)) 105.00

DAGGER LUST - Siege Bondage Adverse To The Godhead LP (The Gutters of Dread—Hellish and primal anguish embody the debut LP of DAGGER LUST. Taking on a more sonically scattered approach, Siege Bondage Adverse to the Godhead pushes Dagger Lust beyond its already relentless fury to depraved heights of misery and disgust. The album's trajectory manages to incorporate more straight forward power electronics elements as well, in contrast to the entity's previous outputs consisting of mostly noisy black metal/grindcore warfare. Siege Bondage Adverse to the Godhead decimates all notions of purity and sexual sanctity.) 20.00

DAVID BAZAN - care LP (polyvinyl - Care is DAVID BAZAN's (PEDRO THE LION) 4th full-length studio album. The album was produced, recorded and mixed by David Bazan and RICHARD SWIFT at his studio National Freedom, USA. First time available at retail. Pressed on black vinyl and housed in gatefold jackets.“Throughout Care, Bazan’s unforced invitation to lean in and listen closer is an ever-present request, one that reminds the listener that you can’t force intimacy but you can certainly fight for connection.”—Paste Magazine) 20.00

DONKEY BUGS - Ancient Chinese Secrets LP (lumpy - Clevos DBs have created a bizarro left field masterpiece. Strange, mystical, mysterious—I just can’t remember the last time I was so debilitated by music. Some songs bring to mind the best late 00s drum machine punk bands such as Spider/Catatonic Youth, others move into industrial territory a la Monte Cazazza (especially 'The ABCs of Lust'). And a peppering of dub to boot! There are Multiple personalities behind the mic—a regular vocalist, a Russian woman, Kate Bush, a cheese loving northerner. The vocals really shine, some of the most confident lyrics I’ve heard. Definitely an unrestrained feel to the entire album (feedback as an instrument???) a la the Residents—the first time I heard it reminded me of the first time I head Duck Stab, completely mind bending. One of the best records I have ever put out.“—Lumpy) 18.00

DORIS NORTON - Artificial Intellingence LP (mannequin - Mannequin Records presents a trilogy of reissues from the avantgarde Italian-born producer Doris Norton, "Norton Computer For Peace" (1983), "Personal Computer" (1984), "Artificial Intellingence" (1985). Apple's first music "endorsement" (later IBM consultant) and early Roland affiliate, Doris Norton is one of the most important women pioneer in the use of synths and in the early electro / computer music. While the beat-oriented style of Norton’s music aligns her with such global fellow-travelers as Yellow Magic Orchestra and Kraftwerk, her championing of the personal computer as a tool for self-sufficient musical creativity also connects her to more artsy musicians such as Pietro Grossi, Laurie Spiegel, and the League of Automatic Music Composers. Norton’s predilection for the bright, glossy timbres of early digital instruments also recalls Hubert Bognermayr and Harald Zuschrader’s bizarre 1982 one-off Erdenklang. 1 year after "Personal Computer", Doris Norton released 'Artificial Intelligence' (previous title: 'From Art-Physiol to Artificial Intelligence', changed before publishing) in 1985, setting a step up in her deep electronic music research and innovation. ) 20.00

ECHO BEDS - buried language LP (flenser - In December of 2016, Denver, CO industrial act Echo Beds suddenly found themselves locked out of their rehearsal space. Their gear was being held hostage as city officials all over the country cracked down on unsanctioned artist collectives and the various DIY structures where many outsider creators lived and worked. This weighed heavily on the duo, who spent the next eight months experimenting and writing the material what would become Buried Language in their living rooms. Deprived of their usual tools, they was forced to improvise using unfamiliar electronics and various cobbled together devices in order to flesh out the embryonic ideas. With the plight of their colleagues fresh in their minds, these new working conditions served to shape the industrial landscape of this release, their second full-length album and first for The Flenser. Formed in 2010, Echo Beds is comprised of Keith Curts and Tom Nelsen. The project began as a one-off live set played in a local warehouse and quickly grew from there. Sensing immediately that they’d only scratched the surface of their potential, the duo began experimenting with hand-built instruments and manufactured sounds—such as recordings of broken glass and a metal filing cabinet—in order to explore and interpret the sounds of industry as a sonic landscape. Over the years they have made a name for themselves with their visceral and abrasive live shows that often include a modified oil drum as percussion. This album should be viewed as a kind of exorcism steeped in metaphor and brimming with social commentary. The title references widespread overnight evictions and boarded-up rehearsal spaces / DIY venues across the country. It deals with a lack of transparency, and is the culmination of all the heartbreak, frustration, grief and rage and the cyclical nature of these space closures.) 20.00

EL DEUX + MARTIN KRAFT - Nur Fur Madchen LP (dark entries - El Deux is the Swiss electro-pop trio of Gutze Gautschi (guitar, vocals), Steno Onetz (bass), Martin Kraft (vocals, drum machine). Formed circa 1981 in Aarau by Gutze and Steno who played together in punk/New Wave band Fresh Color aka Frische Farbe featuring a pre-Yello Dieter Meier. Gutze’s minimal electronic compositions did not fit the concept of Fresh Color, so they formed a new project with their live mixer, Martin Kraft, on vocals. The group was quite successful with many concerts, mainly in southern Germany and various TV appearances in Germany and abroad. Between April/September 1982 they recorded and mixed their debut album ‘Nur Für Mädchen’ in 15 days at Powerplay Studios, Zurich. The LP was released later that year on Gold Records. Influences at that time were of course the NDW “Neue Deutsche Welle'' movement and also from Gutze’s time as a musician & guitarist since 1965. Their step up for recording was a Moog Prodigy, Korg Rhythm 55 (KR-55), Simmons Drums, Casiotone 202, Guitar and Bass. We’ve added a bonus track “Video King” that was originally released as a follow up single in 1984 before the group disbanded. All songs have been remastered by George Horn at Fantasy Studios. The record is housed in an exact replica of the original jacket and includes an insert with photos and lyrics.) 20.00

FAUST - the faust tapes LP (Faust stand among the most influential creative forces to have emerged from Germany in the late ’60s and early ’70s. Along with Can, Agitation Free, Neu! and others, Faust rejected the Anglo-American norms of rock ’n’ roll to start a back-to-basics and uniquely Teutonic revolution in sound—later dubbed by the UK press with the semi-derogatory term “krautrock.” Faust would reach near-mythical status through a series of classic albums recorded between 1970 and 1973 at their secluded Wümme studio. As Dave Segal writes in the liner notes, “There’s no consensus about which Faust album represents their zenith. But a survey of the group’s fans would likely find the collage-heavy messterpiece The Faust Tapes triumphing. Its freewheeling, jump-cut nature and unlikely earworm moments conspire for more what-the-fuck epiphanies per minute than just about any other record about which Krautrocksampler author Julian Cope has raved.” Comprised of twenty odd tape-manipulation experiments and freak-out jams, The Faust Tapes stashes away some of the band’s best-known songs. “Flashback Caruso,” with its delicate acoustic guitar and Rudolf Sosna’s airy vocals, could easily have appeared on So Far or Faust IV, while on “J’ai Mal Aux Dents,” Jean-Hervé Peron’s playful lyrics and this ecstatic, era-defining riff perfectly represent Faust’s magical mischievousness. This first-time domestic release of The Faust Tapes on vinyl reproduces the original sleeve design, featuring artwork by Bridget Riley.) 25.00

JOHN BENDER - pop surgery LP (superior viaduct - Following the release of lo-fi electronic masterpiece I Don’t Remember Now / I Don’t Want To Talk About It and his brilliant follow-up Plaster Falling, Cincinnati-based artist John Bender began assembling his third and last album, Pop Surgery, in late 1982. While all of Bender’s work draws from intimate home recordings—featuring the artist alone with various keyboards, analogue sequencers and tape delays—Pop Surgery remains the one that perhaps best distills his arrant deconstruction of the “pop” concept. These twelve frenetic tracks, meticulously stitched together with dubbed-out vocals and disjointed drum machines, stretch the boundaries of bedroom electronics. Bender would forgo the handmade LP sleeves typical of his Record Sluts imprint. The cover depicts an imposing scrapyard crane, ready to pick up discarded objects with its bright red electromagnet, while the center labels détourn Columbia’s classic ’70s style.) 25.00

LOW - Double Negative LP (sub pop - In 2018, Low will turn twenty-five. Since 1993, Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker—the married couple whose heaven-and-earth harmonies have always held the band’s center—have pioneered a subgenre, shrugged off its strictures, recorded a Christmas classic, become a magnetic onstage force, and emerged as one of music’s most steadfast and vital vehicles for pulling light from our darkest emotional recesses. But Low will not commemorate its first quarter-century with mawkish nostalgia or safe runs through songbook favorites. Instead, in faithfully defiant fashion, Low will release its most brazen, abrasive (and, paradoxically, most empowering) album ever: Double Negative, an unflinching eleven-song quest through snarling static and shattering beats that somehow culminates in the brightest pop song of Low’s career. To make Double Negative, Low reenlisted B.J. Burton, the quietly energetic and adventurous producer who has made records with James Blake, Sylvan Esso, and The Tallest Man on Earth in recent years while working as one of the go-to figures at Bon Iver’s home studio, April Base. Burton recorded Low’s last album, 2015’s Ones and Sixes, at April Base, adding might to many of its beats and squelch and frisson beneath many of its melodies.) 19.00

THE MODS - Reactions LP (ugly pop - Among cognoscenti of the era, this Toronto unit are known for one of the great lost singles of early Canadian punk. As great as 1978's 'Step Out Tonight' 45 was, however, there was much more where that came from. Filtering the clear inspiration of mid '60s Who and Kinks through the aggressive delivery of such contemporaries as The Jam and The Clash, THE MODS honed their attack into an unstoppable rush, hard-edged but melodic, and began working on a planned major label LP that never did materialise. This new Ugly Pop LP includes the single and highlights of the aborted album session; hyperbole aside, it's an astonishingly good record, and one of the best we'll ever release. Printed inner sleeve with new liners and rare pictures inside.) 23.00

MYLINGAR - Doda Drommar LP (After the crushing Döda Vägar EP, MYLINGAR return with their debut full-length Döda Drömmar. “The wall of crushing, blackened sound is back. DD starts exactly where DV left. This in fact feels like the exact same record, which is awesome. There's nothing else around that creates the same intimidating feeling of claustrophobia. I still think Mylingar is one of the most recognizable Death Metal bands ever.”—Wallow Within) 21.00

NIGHT SHOP - In The Break LP (mare / woodsist - Night Shop is the songwriting project of Justin Sullivan. Sullivan has worked as a touring drummer for the past twenty years with a half dozen DIY punk bands, including Ringers and an early incarnation of Worriers. In 2009, he joined The Babies alongside Kevin Morby and Cassie Ramone. When the band went on hiatus in 2013, Sullivan moved to Los Angeles with Morby and continued working with him as a staple of the live band and playing on all of Morby’s studio albums. In the meantime, Sullivan also formed the fuzz punk outfit Flat Worms, with Tim Hellman of Oh Sees and Will Ivy. But in the middle of a tour in August of 2016, Sullivan realized the rigors of the road had grown to be too much. He made the decision to take a full calendar year away from touring and focus, for the first time, on writing his own music.  Like most of Sullivan’s projects, the album is a family affair. His former touring and recording partner in the Kevin Morby band, Meg Duffy (Hand Habits) plays bass on several of the songs and sings backup vocals on a few as well. Flat Worms cohort Will Ivy plays lead guitar on some, while Mare labelmate and soon-to-be touring partner Anna St. Louis sings backup on two songs. The album was engineered by Jarvis Taveniere of Woods and mixed by Drew Fischer who previously worked with Sullivan on Morby’s first two records and The Babies second album Our House On The Hill.) 20.00

PAPA M - A Broke Moon Rises LP (drag city - That chill in your spine makes total sense. PAPA M is back in the room, and like the animal you are, you sense it before you actually know he’s there. As the light from the broke moon floods in, you feel that you’ll survive—even if you’ll never be the same.... Late 2016’s Highway Songs brought Papa M back to us, after many years of silence and several harrowing dances with death for his Id-ego/host body, DAVID PAJO. Now, two years on down the road, we’re all here again to witness A Broke Moon Rises. Highway Songs was a necessarily cathartic experience in all phases. Afterwards, with no tour dates forthcoming (partially due to lousy clubs and their lack of wheelchair-accessible stage doors!), it felt good just to play for fun again, like being in the practice space instead of the psych ward—a much healthier change of pace than some might guess! David blew it out; all the different styles he’s played in over the years, from folk-blues to metal, electronic, pop, Bollywood—all of it. But when the spasms subsided, a back-to-roots sediment remained in the bottom of the bowl, which he read as a motive for a new Papa M album done with all acoustic instruments. That’s how there’s nothing electric about A Broke Moon Rises. The five songs of A Broke Moon Rises find David focusing his technique in unknown directions, to find out what he can do with them. When that happens, he finds himself on the very spot where Papa M music becomes alive! As the quietly funereal march of the opening track resonates with a spare drum beat, we are completely transfixed into the open spaces around the guitars.) 24.00

PAUL FLAHERTY & CHRIS CORSANO - The Hated Music DLP (feeding tube - "Hard to believe it has been 18 years since this set was first issued, but that's what the calendar says. PAUL and CHRIS had been playing together for a while before this. I seem to recall rehearsals outdoors in Hartford beneath stretches of raised highway under construction. But that may have been Chris and Pete Nolan, back when Pete played guitar. Who can remember exactly? It's been a long time. But I do remember we put this set together because it seemed essential to document how amazing the communication was between these two musicians, from different generations, but tuned into the same insane frequency. When we told Paul we wanted to do it on the Ecstatic Yod label, with art by GARY PANTER, and actual liner notes, he thought it wasn't the best idea he'd ever heard, but what the hell. The actual hope of the label was to raise the profile of this incredibly talented but ruinously humble saxophonist, so that he'd be thought of in the same way as the day's other great players. And hey—it sorta worked.) 30.00

PYROLATROUS - Teneral 2LP (gilead - Gilead Media is proud to continue our tradition of working with North America"s finest underground metal bands with New York City"s PYROLATROUS and their debut full-length TENERAL. It"s no secret that we"re partial to the flourishing NYC metal scene, having worked with numerous bands from the city. There seems to be an overwhelming concentration of creative energy coming from the region, and we love being a part of what"s happening there.  Pyrolatrous was formed in 2012 by Nicholas Palmirotto (also of HULL), who wrote and recorded 3 songs with Joel Stallings (also of Radiation Blackbody/Defeatist) on drums. The project took a backseat to HULL due to touring schedules, but was then revived in 2015 after HULL disbanded. Unable to continue with the project at the time, Joel was replaced on drums by the ubiquitous Lev Weinstein (of Krallice, Anicon, Woe, Geryon, Zeal and Ardor live lineup, and more). Together, Palmirotto and Weinstein completed writing and recording Teneral. Following the completion of the album, the remainder of the lineup was solidified with the inclusion of Nolan Voss (guitar, also of Anicon), and Joe Merolla (bass).  Teneral is a densely crafted album, both thematically and musically. A great deal of Pyrolatrous" style is influenced by classic black and death metal, utilizing both sweeping, blasting tremolo passages and powerfully technical riff / percussion interplay.. 2x12", 33 RPM vinyl.Packaged in a wide spine single pocket jacket with insert) 27.00

RAGTIME FRANK - I Know Said The King LP (monfous - "It only takes a few bars into RAGTIME FRANK's fuzz opus 'Bo 1969' to figure out how Frank likes his toast—slathered in sizzling distortion, like hot butter bubbling up from the depths of the earth itself. Pile a duo of hammering drummers on top and you’ve got the makings of a lip smackin’ sandwich that should satisfy all manner of sonic overload junkies. Containing all the hipshake and earthquake action that anyone could crave and then some. Let’s call it Lo-Fi Big Beat. This is basement Gary Glitter, stripped of any negative connotations. Phil Spector is calling from prison demanding to know how these Aussie weirdos managed to upstage him from the flipside of the equator. After a handful of LPs on the much-missed Negative Guest List label, Ragtime Frank, key player in THE LOST DOMAIN, comes roaring back with a primal authority. The formula is deceptively simple but devastatingly effective: pair a towering Bo Diddley beat with supremely-fried Link Wray guitars. Just add liquor. And some hollerin’. Stir. And then shake a tail feather. Four songs of greased lightning on a 12” courtesy of NYC’s Ever/Never Records; perfect for your next eviction party.“) 18.00

RAUL LOVISONI / FRANCESCO MESSINA - Prati Bagnati Del Monte Analogo LP (superior viaduct - Of all the releases on Italy’s legendary Cramps Records, Raul Lovisoni and Francesco Messina’s seminal LP from 1979 has long remained among the most beloved. Prati Bagnati Del Monte Analogo not only introduced the world to the work of two gifted composers, but also is notable for being produced by electronic pioneer Franco Battiato. A sister album to Prati Bagnati would be Giusto Pio’s breathtaking Motore Immobile, likewise graced with the maestro’s gentle hand around the same time. Lovisoni and Messina are both central figures within the Italian avant-garde. Part of a generation of artists who contributed to a radical rethinking of musical practices and composition, they reveal Minimalism as it’s rarely known: delicate melodies, subtle harmonic interplay, incorporating diverse creative traditions and slowly giving way to an ever-expanding open space. Prati Bagnati Del Monte Analogo’s meditative title track, inspired by René Daumal’s surrealist novel Le Mont Analogue, features Messina on synthesizer and Michele Fedrigotti’s impressionistic piano, while on Lovisoni’s “Hula Om” and “Amon Ra,” solo harp, crystal glasses and Juri Camisasca’s radiant vocal drones further ascend into the stratosphere. Skirting the outer edges of ambient, new age and experimental music, Prati Bagnati has a transformative beauty unlike anything else. Superior Viaduct’s edition reproduces the original sleeve design and is recommended for fans of Jon Hassell, Luciano Cilio and Popol Vuh.) 25.00

ROY MONTGOMERY - Suffuse LP (grapefruit - Received a 7.6 rating from Pitchfork. Despite praise and acclaim throughout his career, Roy Montgomery hates his singing. From his point of view, it’s done out of necessity, when he doesn’t have anyone else around to substitute. Roughly one quarter of Montgomery’s epic multi-album 2016 release R M H Q had his singing, and those are his least favorite tracks. Grapefruit has done the best they can to argue that his basso undertones are the center of his appeal throughout his entire body of work, from the first The Pin Group single on Flying Nun in 1981, through his work in Dadamah, Dissolve and on to his legendary ’90s solo releases. However, is it a surprise he jumped at the idea of composing an album for other vocalists? This began as a series of alternate takes of the material on Tropic Of Anodyne, the tracks with vocals off his last release. That concept morphed into assembling vocalists to sing on new songs, and he conceived instrumental material that would fit each singer. Half of the songs came together, resulting in Suffuse. The album charts a slow progression from those who share similarities with Montgomery’s rumbling vocal technique to those who come at singing differently, with minute contrasts throughout. Haley Fohr (Circuit des Yeux) and Jessica Larrabee (She Keeps Bees) bring the first two tracks, with Katie Von Schleicher following with a raw expression of emotional loss, and the sisters Clementine and Valentine Nixon (Purple Pilgrims) expressing emptiness by stripping away words, weaving their voices together through Montgomery’s elastic webbing. Julianna Barwick adds drive and nuance to the foamy sonic waves of “Sigma Octantis,” as “Landfall” crashes in slow motion chaos over Liz Harris’s (Grouper) multi-tracked layers. These compositions generously embrace their guest leaders, and for the first time in his career, Roy Montgomery has made a cogent artistic argument as to why he shouldn’t be singing these songs himself.) 21.00

SARAH DAVACHI - Gave In Rest LP (ba da bing - Sarah Davachi has quickly risen in prominence since her first release five years ago, and Gave In Rest represents her highest artistic achievement. By infusing her compositional style within a predilection for medieval and Renaissance music, Davachi unearths a new realm of musical reverence, creating works both contemplative and beatific, eerie yet essentially human. Gave In Rest is a modern reading of early music, reforming sacred and secular sentiments to fit her purview and provide an exciting new way to hear the sounds that exist around us.  Between January and September of 2017, Sarah Davachi lived in flux; storing her belongings in Vancouver, she spent the summer in Europe, occasionally performing in churches and lapidariums and seeking respite from her transitional state while surrounded by such storied history. This latest album echoes that emotional state of solitude and ephemerality, reaching towards familiar musical landscapes but from oblique perspectives.) 22.00

SCUMPUTER / L.O.T.I.O.N. - split LP (540 - 540 Records is proud to present a split offering and a rallying cry from L.O.T.I.O.N. and SCUMPUTER called Campaign for Digital Destruction. The pair offer eleven abominations, calling upon distorted and manipulated samples, synths, drum machines and a perversion of traditional instrumentation to create a dystopian vision of a society in collapse. NYC’s L.O.T.I.O.N. could only exist in the now—the digital age ruled by a bloated capitalist tyrant consumed by a move toward totalitarianism. L.O.T.I.O.N. is hardcore in the digital age—bursting with nihilism, a sneering hatred for injustice and icy disdain for humanity at large in an era where an email or text is a sufficient substitute for a personal conversation. Citing the work of Scumputer as a key influence, more conventional ideas from Killing Joke, Pailhead, DAF, Skinny Puppy and Throbbing Gristle appear and vanish through the duration of Campaign. Yet L.O.T.I.O.N. is an entity onto itself—calculating, remorseless and seething with malcontent. The material on the split represents the final recordings with EMIL BOGNAR-NASDOR, mastermind behind DAWN OF HUMANS and former percussionist for HANK WOOD & THE HAMMERHEADS. Scumputer is the nom de guerre of GABBA from the legendary CHAOS UK, who abandons much of the approach employed by that band while retaining the fury, cynicism and revolutionary ideas. Recorded by ROB SMITH in Bristol and Kyoto between 2014 and 2016, Scumputer ropes in appearances from Japanese hardcore legends like JUN KATO of WARHEAD and MUNE from CLOWN as Gabba explores the far reaches of punk, hip hop, experimental, edm, industrial and all gray areas therein. The result is an eclectic yet totally cohesive trip through pop culture, media saturation, politics and more through the eyes of a skeptical, educated renegade.) 20.00

SERUM DREG - Lustful Vengeance LP (BLASPHEMIC. BLACK. HATEFUL. DEATH NOISE. The debut LP of SERUM DREG focuses on worship of sex, hedonism, and ritualistic chaos executed through the most traditional means possible. Lustful Vengeance carries the torch of primitive black/death metal, once again pushing the boundaries of Vrasubatlat's grasp but this time out of the unorthodox and into the realm of ancestral aural hate. Serum Dreg's debut LP carries with it the demented fixation of the Vrasubatlat philosophy while managing to dredge in familiar waters of primeval warfare. FORNICATE. ASPHYXIATE. DEATH TO TRINITY.) 20.00

SIC - High Voltage And Uncontrolled LP (beglian waffles - 19 songs of telluric chaos recorded and mixed on a reel to reel SONY TC 630 in Francis Pourcel’s attic in 1977 by Alain Neffe ( Pseudocode , Kosmose , Human Flesh , ... and founder of INSANE MUSIC label ). SIC 's music sounds "proto-punk" going to " loud synth-punk" , made by experimental musicians Francis (guitar), Alain (bass-synth) , joined by Mario (drums) and the "High Voltage" voice of Micheline. All the LP sounds like a wall of noise and sounds like an UFO in the Belgain music landscape , something you could put aside the "Blast-Hope" 7" or "S To S" lp for his sound assault and timeless style , mixing genres from 70's "Stoogian" hard rock wall of noise to early Cabaret Voltaire synth/post punk experiments . After a number of explosive gigs , they split in the late 70's , Alain  continued on making all kinds of electronic experiments with a lot of projects and bands and kept running INSANE MUSIC label ,still alive today. Francis and Micheline will give a "new-wave" sound to SIC as a duo , and put out 3 excellent minimal wave singles early in the 80's .) 16.00

SLAVEHOUSE - taste in pain LP (fallen empire - "By now anyone’s who been following Fallen Empire Records is aware of their decision to close up shop at the end of this year. Before that happens, though, the label still has some new releases in store for their loyal supporters. One such release is the new full-length from Ohio-based black metal punks SLAVEHOUSE, titled Taste In Pain, which came out on August 5 in cooperation with Knife Vision. Slavehouse play a raw, primitive form of punk-infused black metal that might appeal to fans of bands like Bone Awl. On listening to Taste In Pain it’s clear that they have no intention of doing anything other than going straight for the listener’s throat from the get-go. Opener 'Self Punishment' races out of the gate with blasts aplenty and never lets up even as it settles into a rocking groove over its last 30 seconds. The following two songs, 'Fresh Meat' and 'Spent,' employ more of a dirty black and roll approach, with 'Spent' deploying some eerie melodies to great effect (I’m almost reminded of a rawer, stripped-down version of Tribulation or Cloak here). Tracks like 'Scorpion Whip' and 'Sacred Flesh' take this melodic approach even further and really showcase Slavehouse’s ability to contrast dirty riffs against something a bit more atmospheric. Finally, the album closer 'Putrefaction' shows that the band are as comfortable working at a slower, sludgier pace as they are when going full-throttle. Taste In Pain showcases an economy of form that’s refreshing. With only one track exceeding the three-minute mark it’s clear that Slavehouse aren’t interested in taking any more time than absolutely necessary to tear your face off. The fact that they do it while still managing to cram enough interesting ideas into each song to keep listeners engaged is what makes this album a success.“—nocleansinging) 20.00

THROBBING GRISTLE - journey through a body LP (mute - JOURNEY THROUGH A BODY (1982, Industrial Records), widely referred to as Throbbing Gristle’s most haunting work, was recorded as a piece of radio art for Italian National Radio RAI, Rome in March 1981. Following Robert Wyatt’s recommendation, RAI originally commissioned Cosey Fanni Tutti to create a sound work based on the theme of ‘A Journey Through the Body’.

UMO VOGUE - Just My Love LP (dark entries - Umo Vogue formed in Bristol by Stig Manley, Russ Crook and Neil Deamer who were in Bath based ska rock outfit ‘The AT’s’, along with Bristol based singer Debbie Marlow. Neil’s Brother Clive joined the band bringing a fantastic new dynamic to the band on drums, percussion and heavy artillery. The band name is a deliberate misspelling of the ultra-chic Italian fashion magazine ‘L’Uomo Vogue’. After winning the Bristol ‘Battle of the Bands’ in 1982 they were signed to Phonogram and dropped a few months later. They then signed to EMI in ’83 and released their first single ‘Just My Love’ released in early 1984. The second single was ‘Make It Real’ and was never released as the band were culled from the EMI roster in late ’84. For this reissue of their debut single we’ve added 3 bonus tracks, a demo of “Just My Love”, the unreleased follow single “Make It Real” and a bedroom demo “Erotica.” Each song displays ridiculously catchy melodies and innovative electronic rhythms. The drum tracks, a combination of rhythm machines and hand percussion, were mixed down from the 4-track tape used as backing on stage, with the rich slap bass and Roland SH09 synths weaves fluid lead lines in between the harmony vocals. All songs have been remastered by George Horn at Fantasy Studios. The record is housed in an exact replica of the original jacket and includes an 8-page booklet with photos, notes and press clippings from the band’s archive. “We’re synthetic but not antiseptic. We are interested in the naivety and spontaneity of music.”—Umo Vogue) 15.00

V/A - Ayahuasca: Cumbias Psicodelicas, Vol. 1 LP (lion - "What have we here? At first glance it seems like the missing volume from our Groove Club series, which it so easily could have been! This is stunning collection - which took more than fifteen years to put together - of hot, rare tracks that combine cumbia with psychedelic rock. Starting in the late 1960s, there was a boom of tropical music in Peru, both in Lima and the provinces. Cumbia Peruana merged this tropical sound with that of psychedelic rock. Aspects of cumbia were mixed with electric (often fuzz) guitar, played over Andean and jungle rhythms?this combination provoked an explosion of original music. An instrument to lead the way, usually from the introduction of the song; over this, hypnotic layers of keyboards and guitar with fuzz and wah wah; add simple bass-lines; and to top it off, syncopated rhythms from bongos, congas, huiros, cymbals, timbales, often played at breakneck speed. In the end, it's like a sonic cousin to Nigerian music: these musicians liked guitar, they had a fondness for echo, and they loved a murky high-octane jam. Fierce, funky and full of flavor!“) 27.00

V/A - Nihon No Wave DLP (mecanica - Japan is a unique land for countless reasons and the Japanese electronic music has always been something very special. During the late 70s and early 80s a bunch of projects, bands and small record labels, concentrated mostly in Tokyo and Osaka, created electronic music influenced by the post-punk, new wave and experimental scene coming from Europe and North America. All these artists and musicians tried to emulate their influences to create something on their own following the DIY ethic and using the technology they had at their fingertips. A good part of this “Nippon-wave" scene was kept hermetic and secret from the rest of world and only a few have had the chance to discover it through some cassettes, flexi-discs and a few records released on private labels with absolute no distribution out of Japan. Some of these lost "minimal-synth-wave” gems have been rescued and now compiled on "Nihon No Wave”.  Artwork prepared with photos by Stefan Alt (Ant-Zen) and all audio has been restored from the original masters, some vinyl records and tapes. Everything with kindly permission of the original artists.) 29.00

V/A - The Love You Save DLP (cairo - Stunning compilation of great soul songs. The first in a six part series of compilations following a similar logic as Harry Smith's Anthology Of American Folk Music - only where Smith covered folk, blues, gospel and old timey, this compilation covers just American soul music recorded between 1955 and 1972. Many deep ballads and a few rockers. Features extensive 12 page liner notes with lots of photo's.  Cover has gold foil printing, and the records are housed in classy black sleeves. .  Super fancy limited edition double LP not to be missed.) 26.00

V/A - The Truth is a Lie DLP (cairo - Double LP compilation of great soul music! The third in the Cairo sublabel greatest hits of soul series (after The Love You Save & All Of This Goes Too). This volume focus is on mostly heavy duty ballads of the existential sort. Overall the series of compilations following a similar logic as Harry Smith's Anthology Of American Folk Music - only where Smith covered folk, blues, gospel, & old timey, these compilations covers just American soul music recorded between 1955 & 1972. Features extensive 12-page liner notes with lots of photos. Cover has gold foil printing & the records are housed in classy black sleeves. Super fancy limited edition double LP not to be missed.) 26.00

V/A - Original Recordings Of the 30's & 40's, The Songs Of Yesterday LP (Here's an utterly unique score.  In 1978 Dhafni records pressed 500 copies of this LP. It was the first ever LP compilation of Greek 78's. The LP was never distributed widely- only really showing up at local shops in the labels home town - Missoula, Montana.  Mississippi has managed to acquire stock copies, sealed, all the way from 1978!  And here's the great news - it''s a very good LP!  Filled with classic Greek Rembetica and folk music.  Highly recommended. Limited stock, so don't hesitate.) 16.00

V/A - Original recordings Of the 30's and 40's - The Golden Clarinets Of Yesterday LP (Here's an utterly unique score.  In 1978 Dhafni records pressed 500 copies of this LP. It was the first ever LP compilation of Greek 78's. The LP was never distributed widely- only really showing up at local shops in the labels home town - Missoula, Montana.  Mississippi has managed to acquire stock copies, sealed, all the way from 1978!  And here's the great news - it''s a very good LP!  Filled with classic Greek mystical clarinet performances.  Highly recommended. Limited stock, so don't hesitate.) 16.00

V/A - Alabama / There's A New Day Coming 12“ (A true oddity - Side A features John Coltrane's meditation on the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing on September 15, 1963, an attack by the Ku Klux Klan in Birmingham, Alabama that killed four African-American girls.  The song is repeated for 19 minutes, with the "jazz section" removed. This creates a hypnotic effect.  Not for the faint of heart. Side B features a beautiful and politically timely acapella Gospel song.  Austere! ) 14.00

V/A - All Of This Goes Too DLP (caito - Stunning compilation of great soul songs. The second in a six part series of compilations following a similar logic as Harry Smith's Anthology Of American Folk Music - only where Smith covered folk, blues, gospel and old timey, this compilation covers just American soul music recorded between 1960 and 1972. Many deep ballads and a few rockers. Features extensive 8 page liner notes with lots of photo's.  Cover has gold foil printing, and the records are housed in classy black sleeves. .  Super fancy limited edition double LP not to be missed.  ) 26.00

WAXAHATCHEE - great thunder LP (merge - Received a 7.3 rating from Pitchfork.  KATIE CRUTCHFIELD's ever-shifting musical project WAXAHATCHEE returns with the Great Thunder EP. Featuring a collection of songs written with now-dormant experimental recording group GREAT THUNDER while Crutchfield was also writing the Waxahatchee albums Cerulean Salt and Ivy Tripp, the original recordings have mostly faded into obscurity. Unearthing and reimagining them with producer BRAD COOK at Justin Vernon’s April Base studio in Wisconsin was a cathartic experience, she says. On the heels of last year’s critically acclaimed Out in the Storm, Crutchfield found herself looking to take a sharp turn away from the more rock-oriented influences of her recent records towards her more folk and country roots. Some of the songs on Great Thunder, like “Chapel of Pines” and “Singer’s No Star,” stayed the same and will be recognizable to those intensely familiar with Crutchfield’s catalog to date, while closer “Takes So Much” was built back up on piano from the bones of the original version.) 16.00

WILD NOTHING - Indigo LP (captured tracks - Although civilization’s transition into a cyborg world seems inevitable, there are still those who recognize the beauty and power of a human touch to complement the circumvention. Jack Tatum understands this balance, and through a decade making music as Wild Nothing he has learned to embrace both sides of that dynamic—but perhaps never as distinctly as on Indigo, the fourth Wild Nothing album. On one hand, it is a return to the fresh, transcendent sweep of his debut, 2010’s Gemini, and on the other, a culmination of heights reached, paths traveled, and lessons learned while creating the follow-ups, Nocturne and Life of Pause. Indigo finds Tatum at his most efficient, calculated, and confident—resulting in an artful blend of hi-fi humanity and technology that fires on all circuits and synapses.) 20.00

HARD SKIN - if the kids are united 7“ (This us the fourth single of the 30th Anniversary single club, available now separately as a standalone release on black vinyl. It’s a cover of the Sham 69 classic ‘’If The Kids Are United’ and comes backed with the original b-side ‘Sunday Morning Nightmare’ and a homage version of the original UK 7” sleeve along with our ‘tribute’ to the classic Polydor records label from the ‚70s.) 7.00


LP

BEAK> - Beak>>> LP (invada - Written over the last year and, for the most part, written and recorded live in the Invada studios, the band continue to forge their own path through their own genre of oddness. To celebrate the album announcement, Beak> released a new single entitled “Brean Down”. Showcasing the lyrical side of Beak>, “Brean Down” sounds as though Nirvana are gatecrashing a Bronx B-Boy convention. “>>> definitely sounds like a step forward. The production and feel of the first two albums was like listening through frosted glass; a band playing behind a curtain. Now we are hearing Beak> in sharp focus, but without forfeiting what the band see as its ‘wrongness’. This could be the result of having played bigger stages and festivals - something that was never part of the plan - or perhaps it is just a reaction to the infinite cut & paste fuzz pedal kraut bands on the planet.” – Redg Weeks, Invada Label Manager) 25.00

DEAR NORA - Skulls Example LP (orindal - Songwriter Katy Davidson (preferred pronoun: they/them) revived the band Dear Nora in January 2017 when Orindal Records reissued the thirteen-year-old album Mountain Rock on vinyl. The reissue received great acclaim and the band toured the west and east coasts last year. Spurred by the momentum, Davidson decided to create the first album of new Dear Nora material in a decade, Skulls Example. The album is specifically about humanity. Our capacities and feats are so incredible – we’re godlike – and yet we're scrounging for happiness and basic survival, we're heavily addicted, we just want love, we want family. We’re simultaneously so brilliant and so basic. To me, this feels like the worst and best time to be alive. I experience some level of horror and bliss on a daily basis.) 20.00

FELT - Train Above The City LP (cherry red - Possibly one of the strangest albums ever made in that Felt leader Lawrence is nowhere to be seen and instead of their usual arty indie-pop you get an album of jazzy instrumentals composed by keyboardist Martin Duffy and drummer Gary Ainge. Musically it bears no resemblance to anything else they've ever done but still fits in with Felt's ethic of being....just a bit different from other indie bands of the era. ) 28.00

FELT - Forever Breathes The Lonely Word LP (cerry red - Limited Edition Vinyl. The first Felt album for Creation and the first not to feature guitar wizard Maurice Deebank. Forever Breathes the Lonely Word is kind of a bridge album between their old sound and the lighter more varied work in the second half of the eighties. As a result of Deebank's departure Martin Duffy's organ takes centre stage, wandering all over the place.) 28.00

GIA MARGARET - There's Always Glimmer LP (orindal - Chicago singer/songwriter/producer Gia Margaret describes her music as “sleep rock.” It’s a genre all her own, combining elements of folk, shoegaze, slowcore, ambient electronica and trip hop. For her self-produced debut album, There’s Always Glimmer, Gia Margaret crafted twelve gorgeously melancholic lullabies to combat her own insomnia, and to salvage some beauty from the brighter and darker moments of her life. There’s Always Glimmer explores relationships between friends, family members and significant others, often in past tense. Sparse verses isolate mundane moments of domestic and urban life, and choruses ache with earnest expressions of yearning and loss. The disarmingly simple language of Gia Margaret’s lyrics, when carried by the melodic sparkle of her singing voice, have the power to elevate an ordinary moment into something supremely nostalgic and sentimental. A ride on a train, a hand on a shoulder, a dog in a yard, the light of the moon through an apartment window are each made significant and sacred, worthy of examination and preservation. As much as it addresses the unease in our lives, each song on There’s Always Glimmer is steeped in loving comfort, awash with gentle sounds to usher the still minutes before dreams come, when we’re left alone amidst the shadows and the echoes of our memory. There’s Always Glimmer exists to fill the darkness and the quiet.) 20.00

JET BLACK - L'Ère Du Vide LP (i corrupt - "L'Ère du Vide" is Jet Black's second full-length and first output through international label cooperations. The four-piece from Québec, Canada combines distorted Alternative Rock and Indie sounds with spheric Shoegaze elements. "L'Ère du Vide" is an enjoyable treat from the first to last second and a must-have for fans of Sonic Youth, My Bloody Valentine and Slowdive.) 14.00

LONNIE HOLLEY - mith DLP (jagjaguwar - The expansive American experience Lonnie Holley quilts together across his astounding new album, MITH, is both multitudinous and finely detailed. Holley’s self-taught piano improvisations and stream-of-consciousness lyrical approach have only gained purpose and power since he introduced the musical side of his art in 2012 with Just Before Music, followed by 2013’s Keeping a Record of It. But whereas his previous material seemed to dwell in the Eternal-Internal, MITH lives very much in our world — the one of concrete and tears; of dirt and blood; of injustice and hope.  Across these songs, in an impressionistic poetry all his own, Holley touches on Black Lives Matter (“I’m a Suspect”), Standing Rock (“Copying the Rock”) and contemporary American politics (“I Woke Up in a Fucked-Up America”). A storyteller of the highest order, he commands a personal and universal mythology in his songs of which few songwriters are capable — names like Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Joanna Newsom and Gil Scott-Heron come to mind.  MITH was recorded over five years in locations such as Porto, Portugal; Cottage Grove, Oregon; New York City and Holley’s adopted hometown of Atlanta, Georgia. These 10 songs feature contributions from fellow cosmic musician Laraaji, jazz duo Nelson Patton, visionary producer Richard Swift, saxophonist Sam Gendel and producer/musician Shahzad Ismaily.) 26.00

MOUNT EERIE - Dawn LP (pw elvrum - The music of MOUNT EERIE and THE MICROPHONES has always been a very personal, almost voyeuristic, view inside the mind of PHIL ELVERUM. Dawn is an archival core sample from an intensely creative period of Elverum’s life, the winter of 2002/2003 spent in arctic Norway, a kind of “lost album” finally properly recorded on just guitar and singing. Pressed on white vinyl with a special booklet of scary self portraits done in the dark window reflection in overflowing ink, vaguely corresponding to the overflowing darkness in the nineteen songs.) 22.00

MOUNT EERIE - Now Only LP (Now Only, written shortly following the release of A Crow Looked At Me and the first live performances of those songs, is a deeper exploration of that style of candid, undisguised lyrical writing. It portrays Elverum’s continuing immersion in the strange reality of Geneviève’s death, chronicling the evolution of his relationship to her and her memory, and of the effect the artistic exploration of his grief has had on his own life. The scope of Now Only encompasses not only hospitals and deathbeds, but also a music festival, childhood memories of conversations with Elverum’s mother, profound paintings and affecting artworks he encounters, a documentary about Jack Kerouac, and most significantly, memories of his life with Geneviève. These moments and thoughts resonate with each other, creating a more complex and nuanced picture of mourning and healing. The power of these songs comes not from the small, sharp moments of cutting phrases or shocks, but the echoes that weave the songs together, the way a life is woven. The music, fully realized by Elverum alone at home, is fleshed out texturally and seems to react to the words in real time. In a moment of confusion, dissonance abruptly makes itself known; in a moment of clarity, gentle piano arises. On the title track, the blunt declaration of “people get cancer and die” is subverted by a melody that can only be described as pop. As Elverum reinvents his lyrical process, he is also refining his musical vocabulary. Elverum’s life during the period he wrote Now Only was defined by the duality of existing with the praise and attention garnered by A Crow Looked At Me and the difficult reality of maintaining a house with a small child by himself, as well as working to preserve Geneviève’s artistic legacy. Consumed with the day to day of raising his daughter, Elverum felt his musical self was so distant that it seemed fictional. Stepping into the role of Phil Elverum of Mount Eerie held the promise of positive empathy and praise, but also the difficulty of inhabiting the intense grief that produced the music. These moments, both public and domestic, are chronicled in these songs. They are songs of remembrance, and songs about the idea of remembrance, about living on the cusp of the past and present and reluctantly witnessing a beloved person’s history take shape. Time continues. ) 22.00

POLVO - exploded drawing DLP (touch & go - one of the best math rock bands. A few copies back in stock) 23.00

SAUNA YOUTH - deaths LP (upset the rhythm - The final part in a trilogy of LPs that started with Dreamlands in 2012 (wide-eyed, naive beginnings introducing listeners to the world the records inhabit), followed by Distractions three years ago (what happens while you're heading towards a destination, the unknowns, the unexpected outcomes), the songs that comprise Deaths are collectively about the act of finishing, an ode to 'the ending’. Creating this album was a working research project embodying what is sometimes the hardest part of musical endeavour: completing a record. Making a new album is always daunting, but when all band members also have full-time jobs and other commitments it can also seem logistically impossible. Then there is the nagging, unattainable perfectionism that can draw out a record for months or even years - an experience that didn't bear repeating. When is something finished? Is finishing necessary to move on? The album was created and facilitated through a series of deadlines. The recording studio was booked before any songs had been written. Having a deadline in advance allowed for productive freedom through limitation and finite time: five months to write the album, that was it. This meant meeting every week to write no matter how many members could make it, filling in on each other's instruments (reminiscent of how side-project Monotony came about: writer's block in a Sauna Youth practice - removing yourself from your role in a band removes the old expectations) and using automatic writing processes. The limited time didn't allow for much reflection and overworking. Placeholders became final tracks through committing to songs at early stages, keeping them immediate. The album is site and time specific - those months in an archway in Peckham, which live on through samples including amp interference from trains passing overhead. It's also very much of this specific point in history, influences, and band members' lives. This process created a tension through trusting decisions and not questioning what was produced. The 12 tracks touch on political rhetoric, artistic legacy, action and passivity, work and leisure, and, of course, distraction, referencing many musical genres in the process while never leaving punk's orbit. Creative living becomes more gruelling and endless than the 9 to 5 on 'Leisure Time', how freelance living and having multiple jobs both result in no free time. Being in a band is leisure time, but can be a lot of work. Our lives should afford us with time, but we fill it with activity.) 20.00

THE SHIFTERS - have a cunning plan LP (trouble in mind - After two 7-inch singles and a demo cassette (recently pressed to wax), Melbourne quintet The Shifters finally unveil their first, proper full-length album "Have a Cunning Plan".  Recorded at (Australian legend) Al Montfort of Total Control/Terry’s home studio, “Have A Cunning Plan” ups the fidelity a bit, tempering the up-front crunch of their previous demo/LP. The sonic space suits the band, allowing the unpretentious complexity of the songs & lyrics to generate the “oomph” rather than bludgeoning the listener with treble and feedback. The album showcases ten new tracks by the band at their best; scrappy, self-destructive, stumbling and brilliant pop music that seems tossed off or nonchalant on the surface but is rife with rewards upon further listening. Early album bangers like “Molasses” and the first single “Work/Life, Gym Etc” are instant earworms, (as are “Straight Lines” & “Pyramid Scheme”, the latter reworked from a recent 7-inch) but it’s the simple-yet-sophisticated songcraft of tunes like “How Long?” or the languid strum of “Andrew Bolt” that are heavy on mood and are vehicles for vocalist/guitarist Miles Jansen’s erudite lyrics that simultaneously celebrate and decry the banality of life, while also tackling larger issues of colonialism conservatism’s effects on society at large. On the surface, there’s no denying the band owe a heavy debt to The Fall, but whatever seeds were planted by the late, great Mark E. Smith, have gestated into an animal all their own. “Have A Cunning Plan” aims to take them towards a greater plane. "Have A Cunning Plan" is available on black vinyl or limited edition cassette. RIYL: Protomartyr, The Mekons, Omni, The Fall, Monochrome Set, Wire, UV Race, Country Teasers  - WE ALSO EXPECT RESTOCK OF THE SHIFTERS demo LP next week) 18.00

SUMAC - Love In Shadow DLP (thrill jockey - Love is what makes us human. It guides our decisions, shapes our worldview, and defines our experiences. Its absence equates to tragedy while its presence gives our lives meaning. “Love has been well worn theme throughout a lot of rock music, but most commonly in terms of love-lost, overly romanticized versions of new love, or as a veil for sexual conquest,” says SUMAC guitarist and vocalist Aaron Turner (Old Man Gloom, Mamiffer, ISIS). “It is rarely addressed in its more spiritual and vulnerable aspects.” Those less-traversed territories of humankind’s connective bond became the central theme SUMAC’s third full-length album, Love In Shadow, though their explorations of that motif are a far cry from traditional manifestations of love in the realm of art. Across four protracted songs, Turner and his cohorts—Nick Yacyshyn (Baptists, Erosion) on drums and Brian Cook (Russian Circles) on bass—interlace and mangle sounds from their instruments in a sonic homage to both the innate warmth of human magnetism and the cold realities of corrupted love—jealousy, obsession, perversion, addiction. Listeners who followed the Northwest trio down the tangled briar of mathematical riffs and hypnotic battery on The Deal or through the unfettered eruptions and methodical dissonance of What One Becomes are aware that SUMAC eschews the conventional balladry typically associated with odes to our spiritual connectedness. Saccharine sweetness or fatalistic tales of unrequited affection are nowhere to be found on Love In Shadow. Over the album’s hour-plus length, the band employs minimal tools to achieve a maximum overview of visceral passions. Yet while popular music puts an emphasis on conveying moods through well-tread tropes, cultural signifiers, and deeply ingrained associations between tempo, texture, melody and their respective emotional resonance, SUMAC approach their music with the tactile immediacy of abstract expressionists. The beauty is not in the content, but in the form.) 26.00

TEEN DAZE - Four More Years LP (flora - Teen Daze makes a neat contribution to the swelling chillwave ranks. To be filed alongside the likes of Memory Tapes or Washed Out, his sound summons plentiful measures of Shoegaze-indebted swoon, but with the requisite sharper, more vivid and up-to-the-minute aesthetic ready for radio play and iPod docks in the sun. For the first time, Four More Years, the debut release from Teen Daze, is being released on vinyl. This limited edition pressing will feature the 8 songs from the original release, and two bonus tracks: a remix of Shine On, You Crazy White Cap and a B-side. This release will also come with new artwork (designed by Jamison Isaak and Nathaniel Whitcomb) and a download card. Limited to 200 copies.) 20.00

TERRY - I´m Terry LP (upset the rhythm - I'm going to set Carpe Diem as my alarm for the next week and see how that makes me feel. It will be replacing an alternation of Werewolves of London and Baby, It's You. After a week the familiarity might feel kind of insane but kind of nice. Ad nauseum to the coffee. Yeah! Terry is into repetition. Terry often feels like the daily grind but set inside a Loony Tune. They can be slightly nasty and violent, but funny at the same time. I laugh at Terry riffs a lot. The lyrics are droll, yes, but have you heard the riffs? It's like they're tickling you. It's like Terry has got his great big fingers under my arms. But this is all part of a strangely conceived plan. I would almost say that Terry is highly conceptual. Possibly the most conceptual band I've been around, possibly in my whole life. Like... what's really going on here? Why am I listening to jingles and feeling so moved? My favourite songs on Terry's new album 'I'm Terry' (the band's third record in three years), are Under Reign, it's a creepy one, sandwiched between other new faves The Whip and Crimes. There's a theme of dominance and submission here, but kinda unremarkable and ignorable, like knowing you're enslaved by your streaming service but just gently putting that out of your mind for another week. Terry is domesticity. Terry romances the mundane. This is how romance ekes out a triumph amidst mundanity. That's what Billy Bragg's New England and Squeeze's Up The Junction do. Terry's suburban escapism moment is Ciao Goodbye. Listen to Ciao Goodbye on an arterial road under the yellow streetlights of a weeknight. Terry has never been this beautiful. Terry may never be beautiful again, definitely not on this record. That's what I like about Terry, there are few rules in Terry's world. They seem to make a song out of whatever sounds good to them. I literally don't know what they'll do next. They aren't a genre study. The only stylistic consistency is in their hat wear. I've never been in a band like this. I've been in a band that simultaneously studied genre and also hats. But never only hats. Have you noticed the reggae undercurrent in Terry? There is one. This is good. Terry are kinda like Steely Dan or 10cc. Both bands make me queasy after a certain point. Terry probably also make me a bit queasy, singing about police beatings and nationalism and all that. But they're not out to hurt you. They're like the kindly bearer of bad news. There's some awful stuff going on in the world. Terry knows. Terry puts it in terms that speak to me. It's a tragicomedy. I want to laugh and sometimes I want to consider crying. But I don't think I will. I'm pretty certain Terry isn't perverse, they're just the harbinger of the encroaching perverse world. I'm pretty certain Terry wants to be my friend, and your friend. Our friend, Terry.) 20.0

TIMBER RATTLE - Phantoms of Place LP (OCT 2016, I am on tour in central Italy. Tomasso puts on a cassette while some late night drunken pasta is cooking on the stove. While I lay on the couch, floating in that post show liminal space between this day and the next, I am immediately and completely transfixed by the subdued sounds coming from the stereo, by its languid dirge processionals; part eulogy, part elegy betraying a vague longing to trade places with the departed. The next morning I ask to hear it again. For weeks, I am humming the melodies in my head, in the van... even during my own performances. I ask around if anyone knows this band. Mark says he randomly played with them once in Croatia. Francesco says he just saw them in Prague and thought of me while watching them. Eventually, I make contact with the elusive songwriter and we both agree it would be a nice idea to issue the cassette on LP... this album entitled "Phantoms of Place“. TIMBER RATTLE is a kind of "pyche-pastoral" hymnal which seems to be as informed by noise shows in west coast basements or the revolutionary spirit of poet Jean Genet as it is by a panoply of North American landscapes, such as the Blue Ridge Mountains of southern Virginia, where its members grew up. It is spatially both vast and intimately spiritual, seeking to create a reflective space within which to contemplate an individual and mutual encounter with nature; with the mountains, the forests, the deserts, the oceans... and the phantoms of experience and memory that haunt us in these places. While never straying too far from a pastoral/folk sound that celebrates the environment and the arcane wild that surrounds us, the music also incorporates primordial elements of drone and psyche experimentation which focus on an intuitive exploration of tone, pattern, scale, and palette. Lyrically, the layers of harmonies present a willful abstration on the relationships between land and bodies and life and death and magic and language and ritual and myth and space and cycles and animals and plants and food and poison... the sound and the shape of the words being equally important to any 'meaning' discerned from the lyrics. A cohesive and quintessential offering, 'Phantoms of Place' is a meditation on physical space, place and tradition, and an exploration of the meaning of being human in the garment of living nature.. BLACK VINYL LP in an edition of 200 COPIES, w/ black and silver screen-printed sleeve, insert and download code, housed in a heavy duty library style plastic sleeve w/ re-sealable strap flap.- Mkl Anderson, January 2018) 20.00

THE ANDROIDS - Lipstick Heroes '78 7“ (radio raheem - Recently unearthed on the Shellshock Rockers CD on Northern Ireland's Spit Records, these four lost tracks from Belfast's Androids are some of the finest '77-era punk we've (n)ever heard — tuneful and catchy, but with a hard edge that sets them apart from the Good Vibrations pop pack. Limited edition of 500.) 7.00

BURDEN - s/t 7“ (painkiller - Debut 7” by Boston/Cape Cod's BURDEN, featuring four tracks that mix classic Oi! sounds with the power of late 80’s NYHC. Initially started as a one-man project, this is the first recording featuring the full lineup comprised of members of Waste Management, Revilers and MFP. Limited to 500 copies on black vinyl.) 8.00

CONVERGE - Beautiful Ruin 7“ (deathwish - “Beautiful Ruin” is a new four song release from Converge. Recorded during “The Dusk In Us” sessions, this completes the release of all their recorded material from that time period. Each song is a staccato burst of emotion from a Converge at their most raw. Viciously precise yet alluringly out of control.) 10.00

DAKHMA / PILORI - split 7“ (new split 7" by those two bands. Powerful blackend crust.) 5.00

DISCREPANCY - Thoughts Are Things 7“ (young blood - DISCREPANCY presents their 2nd 7", after their "demo" 7". They're adding another release to the pile of classic Southern California/Orange County hardcore 7"s alongside bands like HARD STANCE, CHAIN OF STRENGTH or PUSHED ASIDE. These 5 tracks take cues from those bands and infuse modern power. DISCREPANCY creating a 7" that will be looked upon as a benchmark of the era's hardcore sound. Vinyl includes a digital download card.) 8.00

MODERN LIFE IS WAR - Tribulation Worksongs Vol. 1 7“ (“Tribulation Worksongs” is a series of releases from Modern Life Is War, recorded by Luke Tweedy at Flat Black Studios and mixed by Kurt Ballou at God City Studios. Aiming to be as hand built as possible, the lyrics/credits of each song were typed by vocalist/lyricist Jeff Eaton on his 1950's Royal “Quiet De Luxe” typewriter. These were later hand stamped on the front and back covers by artist Jacob Bannon, making each cover totally unique. The labels of the vinyl were also hand stamped before final assembly by the people at Deathwish.) 8.00

PORNO CASSETTES - Your Face 7“ (radio rahee, - Originally released in 1983 in a microscopic run of just 100 copies (of which only about 50-60 survived), the Porno Cassettes' lone single has been a mythical UK want list topper for many years. Information on the original pressing was so scant that it was thought that the record didn't even exist! And did we mention this record is quite the arse-kicker? These two tracks hold their own against the best that Britain had to offer in '83 — you'll be singing along in no time! Radio Raheem brings you this high quality reissue cut from the original masters.) 8.00

SOUL POWER - The Low End Fury 7“ (react - Soul Power is a San Diego based Straight Edge outfit that strives to make hardcore that is unapologetically on their own terms. Soul Power takes musical influence from bands like Outburst, Inside Out and Supertouch, while taking lyrical cues from the Native Tongues Movement. The band’s message is not a far cry from the progressive social commentary of their predecessors; however their lyrical sentiments implore logic and calculated action as much as they push for forward thinking and unity. The Low End Fury is the culmination of almost three years of writing and growth, both as musicians and as social commentators respectively. The record while passionate and often times angry, does it best to avoid being reactionary. When all is said and done Soul Power is straight up hardcore, through and through. With Low End Fury, you’ll recognize.) 7.00

THE ULTIMATE SCREAMO BAND - Tout est fini 10“ (Recorded in Germany during a European vacation, the Montreal solo project unveils their new and first LP. Comprised of 10 songs, the clear/splatter 10" straight up Orchid/screamo worship and it says so on the back of the insert booklet. Unreal person. Unreal musician. Unreal 10“.) 12.00


LP

ACID ATTACK - Suburbias Dream LP (radio raheem - Hailing from Portsmouth, UK, Acid Attack formed in late 1980, went through numerous line up changes and split up by the end of 1984, releasing just the cassette album “Sulphuric”, and contributing one track to the Sane Records 1984 compilation LP “On the Street”. In terms of era, they fit into what is now known as the UK82 punk scene but their sound is not so easy to categorize. They were neither Oi or hardcore punk; they were aiming beyond such restricting labels. They mainly gigged locally, aside from one headline slot in South Wales, but their name spread far and wide thanks to word of mouth, sales of Sulphuric (aided greatly by the practice of smearing postage stamps with soap in order to reuse them) and interviews in many of the punk fanzines of the time. Sulphuric also received a short but favorable review in the music paper Sounds, who noted that “Acid Attack are a spirited punk band with sufficient ideas and energy to lift them above the morass of thrash-and-screech merchants”. This LP collects the “Sulfuric” cassette, Suburbia’s Dream from the “On the Street” compilation LP, and four previously unreleased songs. Also included is a 16-page full-color booklet containing original photos, artwork, flyers, and band history. Limited to 500 copies, black vinyl only.) 18.00

AESTHESYS - Achromata DLP (narshardaa - Aesthesys is an instrumental progressive band hailing from Moscow, Russia. Their melody-driven post-rock music featuring violin and lots of different rare instruments has taken them across the Old World with live shows from Paris to Shanghai. Aesthesys plays beautiful and powerful post-rock with some ambient and progressive sounds. Total pressing of limited 300 records.) 24.00

BIG BITE - self-titled LP (pop wig - After years long waiting, Big Bite delivers their debut LP. The self titled release sees the band honing in on their raw and relentless sound. Go outside and break your guitar. For fans of rock music and fire signs.) 22.00

CLAN CAIMAN - Clan Caimán LP (em records - The music of Clan Caimán is primitive and hypnotic. It is located in the pre-rock era and from there, it proposes a different evolutionary path for music from the 1950s to present day. Like a different musical development in a parallel timeline. Gamelan, Hawaiian music, surf, exotica, rainforest or aquatic; these elements make up the palette which constructs a mystic and profound music that seeks ancestral connection. Formed in 2016 by Argentinian musician, composer and producer Emilio Haro, looking to create music generated by group dynamics, Clan Caimán differs from his past two solo albums ( “Panorámico” in 2007 and “Estrambótico” in 2012, both on Radiaciones Armónicas) in that these were studio works and not meant to be played live. The quintet's enigmatic sound is built upon the kalimbafón, an instrument created by Haro using several kalimbas, Diego Voloschin's wild and hypnotic percussion (no cymbals, no snare), Gonzalo Cordoba's lap steel and baritone guitar, Facundo Gomez's psychedelic guitar tones and Claudio Iuliano's dry and percussive bass sound. This debut album contains eight anachronistic and oddly familiar compositions that range from introspection to trance, tracing their own sonic landscape.) 25.00

CAPTIVE - Black Leather Glove LP (funeral party - Captive is an electronic pop group out of Austin Texas…They are influenced by the New Wave, Cold Wave, Dream Pop and Gothic Rock genres of the 1980s..Although the band makes no attempt to hide their influences, they are dedicated to writing original songs with driving hooks and melodies unlike other modern groups who tend to focus on recreating past sounds…Captive recorded 7 original songs in the summer of 2013 then continued the process of writing and ended up recording 3 new thematically interconnected tracks (Leaving Home, I’m Long Gone, Coming Home) and finally finishing the album a year later..Expertly recorded by Dustin Coffey on 8 track tape and then mixed and mastered by Anthony Davis..Ryan Foster plays guitar, Mike Naccarato plays bass, Mitchell Krumm plays synths and drum machines, Rusty Kelley does vocals and Emelia McKay does guest vocals on select tracks including the hit song Coming Home.) 20.00

DAGS! - flaws & gestures LP (Forza DAGS! The brand new album from the Italian indie-rock trio. They played in a bunch of bands before before shapeshifting into dogs: Verme, Ayuhara, Minnie's, Wendigo, A Finnish contact and Agatha. Comes with a full digital download of the album.) 12.00

ENNIO MORRICONE - Grazie Zia OST LP (For the first time on LP, Maestro Morricone’s full score for the erotico-giallo "Grazie Zia", directed in 1968 by Savatore Samperi and starring italian actress Lisa Gastoni. On this unique soundtrack, the genius composer has created a magical and suspenseful atmosphere based on the recurrent use of the boy’s choir of Renata Cortiglioni. Including the killer theme "Guerra e pace, Pollo e Brace" with its funny rhyme and ferocious drums.) 25.00

ENNIO MORRICONE - Un Uomo Da Rispettare Ost LP (superior viaduct - restock - Un Uomo Da Rispettare translates to “A Man to Respect,” which can easily be said of Ennio Morricone himself—the unparalleled maestro of the soundtrack. This 1972 crime film stars Kirk Douglas as a master safecracker at a crossroads in his life, emerging from prison yet tempted by one last big job. Morricone builds the main theme around Cicci Santucci’s flugelhorn as riveting leitmotifs reprise amidst variations of noir-jazz abstraction to frame the composer’s grand vision. A strident, two-note piano phrase sets the mood of heightened tension, while muted timpani and trance-like descending bass patterns sweep dramatically across the cinematic stereo field. On “18 Pari,” slinky rhythms and softened wah-wah guitars offer a distinctly Italian library music, adding elements of lightness to the overall avant-garde score. Un Uomo Da Rispettare’s dissonant chords and angular arrangements recall Morricone’s free improvisation work with Gruppo D’Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza) 22.00

FEARING - A Life Of None LP (Fearing is a dark post punk band comprised of pure individuals all with one major common factor; a high school and early 20s life of touring in hardcore punk bands. Fearing vocalist James Rogers and drummer Michael Fenton have spent the last ten years touring together in punk groups such as All Teeth and Creative Adult, while guitarist Brian Vega spent his time selling merch and filling in for bands like Expire and Oblivion. As taste in music inevitably shifts as time drags on, the sound of Fearing can still be attributed to their previous experiences in punk and hardcore; giving a uniquely abrasive and almost aggressive vibe to their slower, darkened material.) 20.00

GOUGE AWAY - Burnt Sugar LP (col. vinyl) (deathwish - Gouge Away are a hardcore punk band from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. “Burnt Sugar” is their latest album, co-produced by Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Oathbreaker) and Jeremy Bolm of Touche Amore. With “Burnt Sugar” Gouge Away dive into personal and social political subject matter without getting the bends on their way back to surface. Carrying an emotional vulnerability and honesty that few bands own in today’s music world.) 21.00

HELLBENT - 1983 - 1984 Demos LP (radio raheem - Emerging from New York City's Lower East Side in an era when loud and fast ruled the scene, Hellbent forged a unique and innovative sound mixing equal parts of ferocious Discharge-inspired hardcore with the pummeling heaviness of metal bands like Venom and Motorhead, all steeped in a heavy dose of macabre lyrics and imagery. The band existed from mid-1983 to mid-1984, and during that brief window they managed to record two sessions at Don Fury's famous Demo Demo Studios, and score opening slots on a handful of high-profile gigs with likes of Discharge, The Exploited, and Samhain's first ever live appearance, as well as many other smaller shows around New York City. After Hellbent's breakyup, guitarist Vic Venom would go on to join Reagan Youth, and eventually form Sacrilege, who later morphed into NYC crust stalwarts Nausea. Drummer Brian Damage also did time with LA punk legends Verbal Abuse, as well as a brief stint with the Misfits, which culminated in their legendary final performance at Detroit's Graystone Hall. This LP collects both long-lost recording sessions in their entirety, complemented by a 12"x36" poster insert with many never-before-seen photos and flyers, as well as detailed liner notes by bassist Jon "Fury" Wiley.) 18.00

THE HOLYDRUG COUPLE - Hyper Super Mega LP (sacred bones - It was 10 years ago, in a house on the outskirts of Santiago, Chile, that Ives Sepúlveda Minho and Manuel Parra started playing music together, and The Holydrug Couple was effectively born. A decade later, they’ve made Hyper Super Mega, an album that represents the culmination of everything they’ve learned in their years as a band. If Hyper Super Mega feels like a classic pop record, that’s because Sepúlveda and Parra spent much of the recording process thinking about the classic pop records of the ’60s and ’70s. Masterpieces by bands like The Beatles, The Beach Boys, and Fleetwood Mac were all reference points, not always explicitly in sound, but certainly in spirit. The duo approached the mythos of the “classic album” from their own inimitable psych-pop perspective, hoping to make a record that felt authentically like The Holydrug Couple that could fit into the same canon. By that criterion, Hyper Super Mega is a massive success. All the elements that made the band’s previous albums Noctuary and Moonlust great are distilled to their purest essence and rendered in obsessive detail. Not only is Hyper Super Mega the most fully realized Holydrug Couple album to date, it’s also the best-sounding. In the three years since the release of the relatively low-budget Moonlust, the band went out and got a bunch of new gear, including high-end mics and synths. For Sepúlveda, that was revelatory. “It gave me a wider palette of sounds that I wasn’t aware of,” he explains. “That helped me to center more on details and the different emotions that different sounds and ways of singing can give you.” That expanded palette led to songs like “Waterfalls” and “I’ll Only Say This,” which trade the bedroom vibes of the band’s earlier work for widescreen pop bliss. Even the experiments, like the electronic-meets-acoustic “Easy,” are as self-assured as anything the band has done. Hyper Super Mega is a capsule history of The Holydrug Couple, incorporating a decade of experience recording, touring the world, and absorbing the sights and sounds of their native Chile. It marks the 10th anniversary of a band whose next 10 years look even brighter.) 19.00

KARLA BORECKY - The Still Life LP (recital - Karla Borecky’s long-awaited second album following 2011’s Still In Your Pocket. In between her work with Idea Fire Company, Karla has been slowly building a new repertoire of solo pieces.  She threads together simple, whirling piano numbers.  Lines of blue sadness, red memories, and green dreams, stitched with charm and care. An approachable album in the best way possible.  Whatever your hobby may be, The Still Life will set the mood.  This album also features two solo-piano versions of Idea Fire Company bangers: “The Life of the Party” from Music from the Impossible Salon (KYE)  and “The Island of Taste,” from The Island of Taste (Swill Radio). Borecky’s music carries such a layered emotional identity while balancing a lack of pretension.  A fine tightrope to dance on, but she does it gracefully. Please do enjoy.) 25.00

KLARA LEWIS & SIMON FISHER TURNER - Care LP (editons megs - Editions Mego is proud to present the first outing from the legendary English musician, songwriter, composer and producer Simon Fisher Turner alongside the highly acclaimed emerging Swedish sound artist Klara Lewis. Care is a unique outing rife with delicious dichotomy. The opening track positions the aggressive directly against more fragile moments. On the subsequent track medieval melodies sprout from a dense rhythmic hiss. Witness a Middle Eastern song appearing amongst a haunted rattling reverb in the epic ‘Tank’ whilst a beautiful force of hope can be found within the sound world of the the closing track ‚Mend’. The wide scope of references and constant pull of forces make this debut offering a timeless patchwork of sonic spaces. Care is an album which sways in such a salubrious manner one can’t help but delight in its unique form of location/disorientation. PEACE is a possibility.) 18.00

LALA LALA - The Lamb LP (hardly art - “The Lamb was written during a time of intense paranoia after a home invasion, deaths of loved ones and general violence around me and my friends,” says Lillie West, the Chicago-based songwriter behind Lala Lala. “I started to frequently and vividly imagine the end of the world, often becoming too frightened to leave my house. This led me to spend a lot of time examining my relationships and the choices I’d made, often wondering if they were correct and/or kind.” West initially started Lala Lala as a way to communicate things that she felt she could never say out loud. But on The Lamb, her sophomore LP and debut for Hardly Art, she has found strength in vulnerability. Through bracing hooks and sharp lyrics, the 24-year-old songwriter and guitarist illustrates a nuanced look on her own adulthood -- her fraught insecurity, struggles with addiction, and the loss of several people close to her. Originally from London, West moved with her family to Los Angeles, where she spent her teenage years, and later to Chicago, where she enrolled at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Inspired by those cities’ DIY music communities, she started Lala Lala as an outlet where she could process her new experiences, which often involved toxic relationships and partying around the city with beloved friends. The turbulence in West’s life throughout that period resulted in an abrasive but tender debut album, Sleepyhead (self-released, 2016). West decided to quit drinking, and she began booking her own DIY tours across the country. Sobriety provided her with a newfound sense of self and clarity, and she began writing the songs for The Lamb while also starting the process of re-learning how to live her life. Across the album’s 12 tracks, West carefully examines the skeletons in her closet for the first time, hoping to capture honest snapshots of her past selves. Many of the songs show West asking herself agonizing questions about her life with a clever and hopeful curiosity. On the album’s first single and opening track, “Destroyer,” she reflects on feeling self-destructive and the delayed realization something in the past has irrevocably hurt you. In “Water Over Sex,” West laments her old precarious lifestyle, while trying to readjust to her newfound sobriety, and ”Copycat” confronts her feelings of alienation and boredom. “Some of this album is about being frustrated that everything is always repeating itself and being bored with your own feelings,” she explains. “‘Copycat’ in particular is about how everyone talks exactly the same on the Internet and how it sometimes feels futile to try and be yourself.”) 19.00

LONNIE HOLLEY - Mith DLP (jajaguar - The expansive American experience Lonnie Holley quilts together across his astounding new album, MITH, is both multitudinous and finely detailed. Holley’s self-taught piano improvisations and stream-of-consciousness lyrical approach have only gained purpose and power since he introduced the musical side of his art in 2012 with Just Before Music, followed by 2013’s Keeping a Record of It. But whereas his previous material seemed to dwell in the Eternal-Internal, MITH lives very much in our world — the one of concrete and tears; of dirt and blood; of injustice and hope. Across these songs, in an impressionistic poetry all his own, Holley touches on Black Lives Matter (“I’m a Suspect”), Standing Rock (“Copying the Rock”) and contemporary American politics (“I Woke Up in a Fucked-Up America”). A storyteller of the highest order, he commands a personal and universal mythology in his songs of which few songwriters are capable — names like Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Joanna Newsom and Gil Scott-Heron come to mind. MITH was recorded over five years in locations such as Porto, Portugal; Cottage Grove, Oregon; New York City and Holley’s adopted hometown of Atlanta, Georgia. These 10 songs feature contributions from fellow cosmic musician Laraaji, jazz duo Nelson Patton, visionary producer Richard Swift, saxophonist Sam Gendel and producer/musician Shahzad Ismaily.) 26.00

MASSA NERA / THISISMENNOTTHINKINGOFYOU / YO SBRAITO / EF'IL - 4 way split LP (zegema - Phenomenal new split 12" with all four bands coming from all over the world and kicking major ass. The intensity of this emotive hardcore/screamo record is as palpable as it is varied, with mathy, jazzy skramz all the way to fuzzy, chaotic and ambient screamo.) 12.00

MIKE COOPER - Tropical Gothic LP (discrpant - Since 2016 we’ve been blessed with Mike Cooper in our catalog. The first installment was “New Kiribati”, revisiting a self-released 1999 CDR in which Mike Cooper was experimenting with a lap steel, electronics, prepared guitar and live recordings, creating what he called “Ambient Exotica Soundscapes”. In the following year, “Reluctant Swimmer” showed an enigmatic, exotic and elegant adventure into Mike’s 1920s National tri-plate lap steel guitar and his Vietnamese electric lap steel. Two pieces, two sides, each ending with beautiful interpretations of some Mike’s favourite songs, “Movies Is Magic” by Van Dyke Parks and Fred Neil’s “Dolphins”. 2018 and it’s time for some new discoveries into Mike Cooper’s limitless exploration in his collection of guitars. The title itself, “Tropical Gothic” references Cooper’s beloved areas of ‘the South’ with a Gothic, dark, remote interplay... ‘’Tropical Gothic includes, but is by no means limited to, a reflection on a region where European colonial powers fought intensively against indigenous populations and against each other for control of land and resources.’’ In each side Mike Cooper studies different approaches to his method of uniting guitar and field recordings into a constant stream of sound, where he delivers chaos and melody – not necessarily in that order. Side A is composed of shorter pieces. Each of them offers a myriad of images and sensations, between the enigmatic and terror (“The Pit”), joy, happiness and freedom (“Running Naked”) or pure contemplation (“Onibaba”). “Onibaba” runs as a fitting introduction to Side B and its 18th minute magical piece “Lelong & Gods Of Bali”. A mix of ambient exotica music, silent film soundtrack and distorted rhythms that dance around Mike’s guitar. It keeps reinventing and transforming itself throughout those eighteen minutes, summing up the dexterity and muscle of Mike Cooper’s music of the last two decades. ) 21.00

NIBOOWIN - breathing LP (zegema - NIBOOWIN is a four piece band from central Michigan who formed in 2017, from the looks of things.  NIBOOWIN features members of Old Soul, so going on that alone, you know you're in for something truly special.  NIBOOWIN play a killer style of music that incorporates elements of post hardcore, black metal, crust, and screamo within their sound.  Musically, NIBOOWIN can be loosely compared to bands such as Amber, Envy, Locktender, Perth Express, Planks, Amen Ra, Lightbearer, and other like-minded bands.  Breathing is the band's debut full-length LP, which was released on February 2nd, 2018.  On Breathing, NIBOOWIN offer up eight tracks of brutal as fuck sounding post hardcore, black metal, crust, and screamo.  Overall, Breathing makes for an amazing listen and definitely should not be missed.  Highly recommended!  Enjoy! ) 12.00

NORDRA - Pylon II LP (sige - Nordra is the solo project of composer, programmer, and activist Monika Khot, who is also half of the avant noise/prog duo Zen Mother. As Nordra, Khot uses guitar, trumpet, voice, synthesizers, and other electronic and acoustic instruments to craft exploratory, inquisitive music that is both cerebral and soulful, combining post-industrial elements with musique concrète and gently melodic ambience. PYLON II is an original score composed for an immersive performance choreographed by Coleman Pester for the 9e2 festival of technologically-driven art. This multimedia piece uses architectural design and live surveillance feeds to probe the dynamic relationship between observation and consent. Nordra’s riveting score captures perfectly the tension between the vulnerability of embodiment and the dystopian apathy of the technological gaze, subtly raising questions about control and complicity through the lens of its own deftly manipulated simulacrum. This limited edition vinyl release of PYLON II from SIGE records follows Nordra’s 2017 self-titled debut for the label, praised by brainwashed.com for "sounding like nothing else and not at all attempting to“) 26.00

RESPIRE - Dénouement LP (narshardaa - Respire is an six-piece band from Toronto, Canada, who plays orchestral post-black metal with epic post-hardcore and screamo. This is the second full-lenght record. Dénouement is an 8 song, 37 minute collection written and recorded in a year marred by the toils of addiction.) 13.00

THE SHIFTERS - s/t LP (I wrote about the debut cassette from Melbourne’s the SHIFTERS in the very first column that I did for MRR three years ago, which gives me all sorts of complicated and confusing feelings about the passage of time. And as evidence that sometimes it takes awhile for historical wrongs to be righted, that criminally limited tape is now finally available in its entirety as an LP on the new French label Future Folklore, following the two songs that resurfaced on the Creggan Shops 7” courtesy of It Takes Two back in 2016. The SHIFTERS’ stark, repetitive minimalism and shambolic charms always owed more than a little bit to the FALL in their early years, and revisiting the material from the cassette now just a few months after Mark E. Smith’s passing only reinforces the psychic connection between the lackadaisical post-punk twang in “Captain Hindsight” and the cracked melodies of something like the FALL’s “Your Heart Out” from the Dragnet era. “Creggan Shops” is as close to a contemporary successor to those brilliant first two MEKONS singles as I’ve come across, from the tense interplay between the melodica and a creaky violin, to the scritch-scratch guitar, to the nonchalantly harmonized dual vocals, all sounding like they’re perpetually on the verge of coming undone. There’s way more at play here than blatant UK DIY worship, though—it’s not a huge jump from the homespun, pastoral pop of ‘80s Australian DIY legends like the PARTICLES and the CANNANES to the SHIFTERS’ raggedly melodic “Colour Me In,” and “The American Attitude to the Law” sprawls into a lengthy VELVET UNDERGROUND-addled haze, if only LOU REED had written songs referencing “drinking cough syrup to fall asleep” instead of heroin. One of the best releases of 2015 when it first came out on cassette, and this vinyl version is definitely going to be tough to top in 2018. - Erika Elizabeth | MRR #421) 17.00

SIAVASH AMINI - Foras LP (hollow ground - On Foras, Siavash Amini further intensifies his sonic studies of the relations between the individual mind and its interplay with the environments that surround it. After 2017’s Tar, Foras is the Iranian sound artist’s second album for Hallow Ground and his sixth solo album in only six years. While Amini has recently been collaborating extensively with other artists, the four tracks see him returning to his singular approach that blends harsh electronic noise with lush granular synthesis and classical compositional techniques.Over the course of roughly 38 minutes, the album navigates between different and at times seemingly contradictory moods, thus mirroring its underlying concept. Foras, meaning "outside" in Latin, explores how individual sorrow relates to and is triggered by space. Similar to what the late theorist Mark Fisher has dubbed the "eerie", the LP focuses on how landscapes and buildings connect to and transform the inside world and thus the psychological experience. Amini made this concept his method, doing field recordings in places over which a deep sense of darkness looms, as he himself puts it - liminal places that act as passageways into the collective subconscious. "May it be by passing through a space haunted by collective memories of loss or tragedy, or by means of interpersonal dialogue, or even a memory of such events in each individual's mind," elaborates Amini on the starting points from which Foras dives further and further into the darkness. It is no surprise then that the incredibly lush soundscapes of Foras evoke distance as much as depth. However, just like Amini has crossed from the outside into the inside world to document what is to be found in between, his sixth album provides more than what is to be found on its surface. The complex sound world of Foras is haunted also by hope and compassion.) 25.00

THOU - summit DLP (gilead - The celebrated third full-length from Thou will now finally be available as a 2LP with new and expanded artwork..

THOU - Inconsolable LP (Community Records is pleased to offer Thou's Inconsolable - a collaborative companion EP to 2018's full-length Magus - offering eight Thou compositions expressing the band's ongoing confrontation with the grotesquerie and power of modern civilization with a unique focus on melodic vocal and string performances by the band and guests. Inconsolable stands apart from any other Thou release as the first they would call "acoustic" for a radical instrumental stride away from the heavy, electric instrumentation that's seen them relegated to such genres as sludge, doom, stoner metal, post-metal, grunge, and post-hardcore but, despite this, establishes its potency in acoustic guitar, violin, and other strings and melodious lead vocals by guest performers. Thou frontman (and pillar of New Orleans' DIY culture) Bryan Funck would appear to be totally absent for the album's lack of his signature vocals. But, to those of us who have worked with and inevitably then for Funck in New Orleans and beyond, his voice manifests just as presently on Inconsolable in other signature contributions such as philosophically pessimist lyrics, his self-effacing support of his community, the ironic streak that he likes to use as a smokescreen, and, of course the brutally obscure Nirvana worship. Inconsolable is Thou's tribute to Nirvana's "acoustic" MTV Unplugged in New York performance - a funeral with amplifiers and an unnaturally impactful experience in the abyss of lawless and unregulated impulses, desires, wishes, passions that Thou's prolific work has sought to make rock music a realistic portrayal of. As such, Inconsolable reproduces more than the technical production of that Nirvana performance and interprets more than the sinister atmosphere of what was virtually an indie rock icon's funeral for himself. Thou's Inconsolable is a collaborative album that, unlike ever before, offers Thou's love of dark, 90s guitar pop beyond the macabre, through the macabre. Fans of Thou, Wolves In The Throneroom, True Widow, The Bees Made Honey in the Lion's Skull, Fiona Apple, Pope,The World Is A Beautiful Place, and so many others absolutely should not miss this!) 18.00

Purge and Swell is a 12” 45RPM mini LP with 10 new tracks, and is accompanied by a 76-minute bonus CD Lost Decade with 31 additional tracks.

YVES BERNARD - L'Oreille TAPE (future folklore - Really cool demo from this French project… actually, I’m kind of surprised that it’s being sold as a demo as it’s quite long and fully realized in my opinion… the songwriting, recording, and artwork are all top-notch and really cool. I would call Yves Barnard, broadly, synth-punk, but they (he?) definitely have a unique take on the genre, combining the quasi-industrial elements of Metal Urbain with poppier elements, some of which have a dark pop-garage, Marked Men-type of thing going on and some of which go in more of a Screamers-type direction. The drums are all acoustic, and the vocals are in this sing-speak style that really accentuates the paranoid quality of it all, not to mention the French-ness. For as familiar as some parts of it sound, it all adds up to something really unique. Perhaps this isn’t for everyone, but if you’re intrigued by the above references give it a try… it’s well worth hearing. ) 7.00


CD

JACKSON MAC LOW - Poetry And Music CD (recital - A tremendous collection of recordings from famed Fluxus poet and artist Jackson Mac Low (1922-2004).  Originally published on New Wilderness Audiographics as a cassette in 1977, these recordings have been cleaned up and remastered by Sean McCann in 2018.  Jackson’s beautiful text formulas are supplemented by stereo multi-tracking, creating a spatial jungle of wordplay. One gem of this CD is the live foray into tape manipulation from 1966 featuring the assistance of James Tenney and Max Neuhaus. It is fabled that they took Jackson’s voice and slowed it down to a guttural thunderstorm during playback, resulting in a manic blend of words darting through a black cloud of reverberation.  Only a small amount of Jackson’s sound poetry is available, making this collection a delight to swallow and digest. Produced with Charlie Morrow, we are thrilled to re-present this history to the ears of both young and old.) 16.00

BILL DANIEL - Tri-X Noise - Photographs 1981-2016 BOOK (4 decades of subterranean countercultural hijinks are recorded on black and white film. Beginning with early the 80s Texas skatepunk scene, the book is a sprawling visual journal of a life lived on the road and after dark. Punk shows high and low, crusty experimental cinemas, freight train adventures, Mission School graffiti, impossibly obscure house shows, and art exhibits in the shadowy margins— it’s a mash up of subcultural documentation, from San Francisco to Shreveport, from Texas to Braddock Pennsylvania, a flash-lit scrapbook of an invisible vanguard— all shot on Tri-X film. Bill Daniel began making photographs in 1979 while attending punk shows in Austin, Texas. During the next few years, as both participant and observer, he documented the punk and skateboard scene in Texas. In 1987 he moved to San Francisco to pursue filmmaking. There he met filmmaker Craig Baldwin and began working as Baldwin’s cinematographer and editor while exploring the burgeoning art scene centered around Artists’ Television Access, a storefront gallery in the then-bohemian Mission District. In 2005 Daniel completed a film on hobo culture, “Who is Bozo Texino?,” which has screened worldwide, including several hundred in-person shows on tour across North America. This project was first configured as a multi-channel video installation, “The Girl on the Train in the Moon”, which premiered at the “Widely Unknown” exhibition at Ditch Projects in 2001 and then toured to over 75 cities. In 2008 this work was followed by a book on railroad subculture, Mostly True, and was presented as an installation for the MOCA LA 2011 Art in the Streets exhibition. Other of Daniel’s projects have addressed environmental issues, urban redevelopment, water squatters, and have taken form as mobile installation works, including Sunset Scavenger/the Sailvan project—a van-based video installation that toured between 2002 and 2010. Daniel has received awards from Creative Capital, The Headlands Center for the Arts, Film Arts Foundation, and the Guggenheim Fellowship. Daniel’s work has been exhibited at venues across the country, including The Museum of Modern Art, Sluggo’s, Space 1026, The Marfa Book Company, Beehive Collective, Walker Art Center, Space Gallery, Railroad Blues Alpine Texas, The Luggage Store, Ditch Projects, Autonomous Factory Rog Ljubljana, Adobe Books, ABC NO RIO, Visual Studies Workshop, AK Press warehouse, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Galapagos, Needles and Pens, Light Industry, Banff Media Centre, Cinecycle, The Elsewhere, Redcat, Secret Project Robot, Fort Worth Museum of Modern Art, Fargfabriken, The New Museum, Orcas Island Grange Hall, Maysles Cinema, Beerland Texas, and many others. Daniel continues to tour, searching for new audiences in unlikely places.) 28.00

SEAN MCCANN - Saccharine Scores BOOK + CD (recital -An album/artbook documenting Sean McCann’s recent chamber compositions. Ranging from the 10-person ensemble performance of “Portraits of Friars” at Fylkingen, Stockholm in February 2018, to his first quartet piece “Victorian Wind” performed in Toronto in 2014. McCann’s scores leak pastoral and bizarre passages, dancing in the banal beauty of sound poetry. The performances feature guest musicians Sarah Davachi, Zachary Paul, Geneva Skeen, Celia Eydeland, Maxwell August Croy and more. The book holds in-depth scores, program notes, and photography by McCann.  A lovely compliment to finger through while you lay down to listen to the disc.  It holds text and imagery from the pieces, along with musical notation. Edition of 200, signed and numbered.) 25.00
