LP

BEIRUT - gallipolli LP (4 AD - Zach Condon aka Beirut celebrates the 11th anniversary of not using the farfisa organ he used to write his first two albums by dragging it wheezing out of retirement to help get things back on track after the so so so No No No. After breaking his arm (no explanation given), he spent an intense month in a semi-isolated studio writing this his fifth album which the press release describes as unintentionally more visceral than the last two. So there. ) 23.00

BOY HARSHER - Careful LP (nude - Massachusetts darkwave duo Boy Harsher return with a brand new album entitled Careful on the band's own Nude Club imprint. Boy Harsher's second full-length album, Careful, further develops the band's brooding dance style, set up in their previous EP Country Girl. The ten songs, spanning forty-four minutes, contain eerie narrative soundscapes that are bracing, high tempo and dynamic. The album delivers manifold emotions, from the nostalgic yearning of "LA" to the gripping intensity of "Come Closer." The nervousness of Augustus Muller's bent, out of tune synths paired with the lush and sometimes brittle vocals of Jae Matthews, delivers an unsettled, yet fulfilling encounter with Boy Harsher. Careful summons a new spirit for the young band - that of growth and desire.) 20.00

BREMEN - enter silence LP /blackest ever black - ollowing a trio of sprawling, planet-gargling double-LPs, 2013's self-titled LP on Skrammel, and Second Launch (2015) and Eclipsed (2017) on Blackest Ever Black, Bremen - J. Tiljander and Lanchy, previously best known for their contributions to Brainbombs' long rapsheet of genius-and-brutality, but latterly exponents of a rarefied cosmic melancholy - return with Enter Silence, their most concise, and powerful, album to date. Once again the Uppsala multi-instrumentalists combine elements of trogged-out psychedelic rock with a deadly serious Arctic minimalism and weeping modal improvisations that owe more to the outer limits of jazz and burnt-out free music from Japan. It's connoisseur's space music, grown-up and grievously honed; outwardly inclined towards the epic but studded with details that reward attention and introspection. There's always been a strong undercurrent of sadness animating Bremen's work, and that existential burden is present and correct on Enter Silence, culminating in the all-out cosmic anguish of 'Palladium'. Even 'The Middle Section', whose ragged chords are nothing if not the sound of optimism and defiance, sounds like it's navigating some kind of unsayable trauma. But this band has always allowed plenty of room for bonehead slash-and-burn as well: see here especially the Stoogeian/39 Clocks-ish rock'n'roll of 'Aimless Cruising' and the pulpy quasi-cinematic tension of 'Sinister', or the brilliant 'Too Cold For Your Eyes', a blast of voidal motorik that sounds like a cranked-up Clean. It's a cold, cold world out there) 20.00

CASPAR BRÖTZMANN MASSAKER - Black Axis DLP (soutehrn lord - Caspar Brötzmann Massaker’s masterful second album from 1989 – remastered. The power trio’s blunt force execution is directed by Brötzmann’s explosive and exquisite six string conjuration. Channeling Hendrixian vibrations mixed with hard German industrial atmosphere.) 25.00

CASPAR BRÖTZMANN MASSAKER - The Tribe LP (southern lord - Caspar Brötzmann Massaker’s masterful debut album from 1988 – remastered. The power trio’s blunt force execution is directed by Brötzmann’s explosive and exquisite six string conjuration. Channeling Hendrixian vibrations mixed with hard German industrial atmosphere) 17.00

EARTHEATER - IRISIRI LP (PAN - restock -Eartheater (aka Queens based artist Alexandra Drewchin) distills foley-filled digital production, a three-octave vocal range, and classical composition into works suspended between obsessively detailed sonic tapestries and almost recklessly romantic and gestural electronica. A body of viscerally emotive live performance stands alongside her recorded output, realized by her fearless physical investment and gut-wrenching vocal sincerity. IRISIRI, Eartheater's third full-length record, lays out a shifting network of abstract song craft, laced with sudden structural upheavals and collisions of mutated tropes from numerous sonic vocabularies. Modular synth staccato plucks hammer out in arrhythmic spirals over a carefully muzzled grid of pumping kicks - unleashed in unpredictable disruptions.  Technoid stabs mingle with crushed black metal. An icy OS reads poetry against a bed of granular synth swells.  Drewchin's sirening whistle-tone vocals drape over relentless harp arpeggios. Eartheater confounds expectations of structure and resolution before deciding to thread in a sugary melody that snaps us back into some conception, however hazy, of pop songwriting. Guest spots on  IRISIRI charge Drewchin's ideas with concordant energies, from the stark imagist poetry of Odwalla1221 on Inhale Baby, to the sheer lacerating force of Moor Mother's unflinching verse on MMXXX. Drewchin's lyrics, strewn with flourishes of wordplay and symbolism, explore themes of her autodidactic experience - playing with the tutelage of the 'pupil' within the 'iris' mirrored in the palindrome  IRISIRI. One motif appears as a song name,  C.L.I.T., which Drewchin breaks down into "Curiosity Liberates Infinite Truth." The acronym stands as a microcosm of the Eartheater project in its holistic combination of idiosyncratic spirituality and cheekiness, presented with an earnest confidence that some could consider confrontational. In spite of this lexicon's maximal effect, it comes from a very personal place as she states, “curiosity has had to be the currency of my education". On OS In Vitro, she reminds us that "These tits are just a side-effect," and "You can't compute her," as if to acknowledge the clouding effect of sexuality and technology in the face of a higher self-significance. In the record's accompanying video piece, Claustra,  she slides between "the owning of my loneliness" and "the end of the loaning of my onliness”, encapsulating images of self-purifying isolation and the rejection of artistic exploitation with the flip of two syllables. The transmuting landscape of IRISIRI is riddled with evocative poetry and evidence of Drewchin's development as an artist since her debut in 2015. Drewchin performs and collaborates with art duo and close friends FLUCT. In February 2017, she starred in Raul de Nieves and Colin Self's opera The Fool at the Kitchen. In April 2017, featured on two tracks from Show Me The Body's  Corpus I mixtape alongside  Denzel Curry  and Moor Mother. She's currently composing work for the contemporary chamber orchestra,  Alarm Will Sound, that will debut in May 2018. Her new live set sees her accompanied by the concert harpist Marilu Donivan. The release is mastered by Rashad Becker at D&M, featuring photography by Elise Gallant.) 23.00

EIJI NAKAYAMA - aya's samba LP (studio mule - Brilliant debut album from Eiji Nakayama, reissued 41 years since its original release, thanks to Studio Mule. 'Aya's Samba' has reached cult status over the years, and rightly so. Top level Japanese jazz. Originals go for an eye-watering amount so get this instead.) 27.00

ESBEN AND THE WITCH - nowhere LP (season of - Berlin/UK-based three-piece ESBEN AND THE WITCH deliver their fifth album, 'Nowhere'. With haunting, tranquil passages, a primal fierceness expressed in punk-influenced, distorted riffs and the alluring voice of vocalist Rachel Davies, the extremities of beauty, noise and power have never matched so well before.) 20.00

FORN - Rites of Despair 2LP (gilead - Their first proper full-length after a series of EPs and singles, Rites of Despair is the resulting vision of two years' worth of tumult, including relocations, lineup changes, life and death. Divided between two Acts, Act I: Depersonalization & Act II: Derealization, Rites of Despair explores themes of isolation, depression, decay, tumultuous self discovery, and abandonment. On this album Fórn galvanize themselves as one of North America's leading purveyors of absolutely miserable, sludging funeral doom. Tracking and engineering was completed by both Alec Rodriguez at New Alliance in Cambridge, MA, as well as Andrew Oswald at Secret Bathroom in Oakland, CA. Mastering completed by Magnus Lindberg of Cult of Luna.  As has become tradition, Rites of Despair contains artwork from the vision of Bryan Proteau, who has worked with Fórn on imagery for all of their solo releases to date.) 30.00

INEXORUM - Lore of the Lakes LP (gilead - Started in 2017 as the solo project of Carl Skildum (Antiverse, Threadbare, live guitarist for Obsequiae, Majesties, and more) and now featuring the RIAA-certified gold producer Matt Kirkwold, Inexorum present their debut album “Lore Of The Lakes”. An ode to the spirit of 90’s black metal, “Lore of the Lakes” sees Skildum and Kirkwold at the height of their musical writing prowess. Melodic guitar harmonies cascade against driving rhythms and capture that same sense of exhilaration and aggression that formative bands such as Dawn, Sacramentum, and more have pioneered in years past. Recorded and mixed at the home of Skildum in Minnesota, “Lore of the Lakes” is an album that deals with the ebbs and flows of perseverance, even in the face of inevitable loss. “Our time is finite,” Skildum says, “but each of us has the power to reshape the world in small but meaningful ways.” A deeply personal record, “Lore of the Lakes” is destined to be one of 2018’s most compelling and sonically evocative albums.) 25.00

OBJEKT - Cocoon Crush DLP (PAN - PAN welcomes back Objekt for Cocoon Crush, his first LP since 2014’s Flatland. Over the past four years Objekt has continued to challenge conventions with his club output (the Objekt #4 single release and the Kern Vol. 3 mix CD for Tresor), while maintaining his reputation as a DJ who deploys impeccable technical finesse in crafting elaborate narratives from a diverse and challenging palette of electronic music. Written between 2014 and 2018 in Berlin and on the road, Cocoon Crush once again sees the producer jettisoning the functional requirements of the dancefloor. Marking a further evolution from the youthful exuberance of Flatland, Cocoon Crush explores a more introspective side, with themes of human interaction resonating throughout the record as it ruminates on a spectrum of complex moods rooted in 4 years of sometimes turbulent personal experience. Cocoon Crush represents an aesthetic departure from Flatland’s largely synthetic tonality, drawing from organic source material and natural textures to illustrate perplexing and unfamiliar sceneries in photorealistic detail. In Cocoon Crush, Objekt diverges further still from his musical influences to craft the purest manifestation of his own musical personality to date: an intriguing and enigmatic album whose reference points are hard to pin down, in which ghostly synth passages weave through mind-bending, weighty drums, and ASMR-triggering foley collages scrape and sparkle. Through meticulous sculpting, Objekt traces a rich and impressionistic journey through claustrophobia, hope, guilt, anxiety and joy, nested in layers of sonic detail which reward with every listen.  The album is mastered by Rashad Becker, featuring photography by Kasia Zacharko, and layout by Bill Kouligas.) 26.00

ORPHAN ANN - The Practice Of Surrender LP (moloton - ltd to 200 - For Moloton’s ninth outing, they're welcoming Orphan Ann with their debut LP ‘The Practice of Surrender’. The duo, consisting of DIY veteran Anja Enerud (Masskultur collective) and Sofia Al Rammal Sturdza (SARS, Född Död) burst onto the scene with their pitch-black take on synth music, combining sharp, penetrating vocal chants with atonal drones and haunting drum machine patterns. Orphan Ann has previously released their music on the Danish label Posh Isolation, where they contributed with four tracks to the ‘You And Me Now’ cassette compilation. They have been performing their live show at various stages around the world, including MUTEK in Mexico City and Norbergfestival in Sweden.) 20.00

PORTRAYAL OF GUILT - Let Pain Be Your Guide LP (GILEAD - Portrayal Of Guilt delivers their uncompromising debut full-length, "Let Pain Be Your Guide." "Let Pain Be Your Guide" was recorded in a basement over the course of 48 hours with Matt Michel (Majority Rule, NO MAN) in Dunn Loring, VA, and features guest vocals from Matt Michel, Dylan Walker (Full Of Hell), and Maha Shami (NO MAN). Unhinged yet masterful, "Let Pain Be Your Guide" will be one of the outstanding pieces amongst heavy music in 2019 and sees the band honing in on something truly unique. LP includes digital download.) 23.00

STEVEN STAPLETON AND DAVID TIBET - The Threats Of Memories DLP (Leaders of England’s hidden reverse, Stapleton and Tibet, compile four visionary highlights of their collaborations between 1991-1998, including a previously unreleased outtake of their ‘Musical Pumpkin Cottage’ album First available at their NWW and Current 93 concert in London, late 2018, ‘The Threats of Memories’ unfolds across the minds-eye with all the lysergic quality that one may hope for. Ancient acolytes and wide-eyed ambient lambs alike will be enchanted by the unfathomable spatial dimensions and lurking intimacy on offer, all newly remastered and rendered on vinyl to thee most exacting standards, bringing anyone in earshot within touching distance of the duo’s original vision.  In the A-side ‘The Sadness of Things’ (1991) we can feel the spectral touch of Colin Potter applied to slow, curling strings, shivering hi-hat and stereo-strafing apparitions, bookended by haunting vox from Joolie Wood and Ruby Wallis at the front and David Tibet in the rear. ‘The Dead Side of The Moon’ features many more hands on deck to explore a proper sort of mountainside kosmiche revelation alongside ‘Bubblehead’, which maintains a motorik trajectory into more possessed, end-of-trip tremors that also leads down the Craig Leon-esque wormhole of ‘DreamBreath’, a previously unreleased ace of heavy breathing loops and chromatic chronics laced with Stapleton recalling a lysergic daytrip.) 32.00

TOADLIQUOR - Cease & Decease DLP (southern lord - Cease & Decease, a double-LP discography by oppressive sludge juggernaut, TOADLIQUOR, released as part of Southern Lord’s 20th Anniversary series. The mysterious TOADLIQUOR continues to hold its position as one of the most crushing sludge outfits from the ’90s, while maintaining a shroud of mystery and diehard cult following two decades later. Not only does the collection encapsulate the entire 1993-released Feel My Hate – The Power Is The Weight – R.I.P. Cain LP as well as some unearthed extremely scarce and previously-unreleased recordings, it also includes a newly recorded song that was especially prepared, written and documented for this release. Cease & Decease also marks the first time the band’s entire four-part “Inter-Stellar Space” opus is pressed together; the first three sections were found on different releases, and the closing section had never been recorded before now. Several of the initial recordings were originally recorded by Tim Green (The Fucking Champs, The Nation of Ulysses) and some of the resurrected tracks on Cease & Decease have here been remastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege. Housed in a deluxe gatefold Stoughton sleeve which includes existing as well as brand new artwork, Cease & Decease is pressed on two massive slabs of vinyl, with a full black pressing and a limited silver pressing strictly exclusive for the label’s subscription series. Cvlt Nation is now streaming the newly-recorded and previously unreleased “(Closing Sections Of) Inter-Stellar Space,” stating of the track, “TOADLIQUOR were all about creating timeless fucking doom laced with crust. The vocals from this band sound like tortured mental patients screaming to be heard. TOADLIQUOR had the whole Sabbath riff thing, but flipped it with more distorted vibe, plus their sound had an undertone of sinister and brutal crust… To say that it’s an honor to share this with you is a HUGE understatement.”) 25.00

V/A - Rekordfahrt Negativ - Folge 2 LP (kermkrach - LP: Ltd. to 350 copies, transparent vinyl, random color silk-screen artwork, incl. booklet & black rubber glove - Rekordfahrt Negativ - Folge 2 is a compilation of minimal wave and 80ies synth tracks compiled by FKK Schallplatten [Förderung Kosmischer Kunst]) 25.00

XIU XIU - Girl With Basket Of Fruit LP (altin village - Xiu Xiu's new album called "Girl with Basket of Fruit" is coming out via Altin Village & Mine in Europe. "Girl with Basket of Fruit" is imbued with the agitation, tension, sorrow and anger that has permeated the daily lives of so many over the last few years. It was produced by Xiu Xiu's Angela Seo and Greg Saunier of Deerhoof. Xiu Xiu is Thor Harris, Jordan Geiger, Angela Seo, and Jamie »Butch Jenny« Stewart.) 18.00


TAPES

POWER TRIP - Nightmare Logic TAPE (southenr lord -  "Nightmare Logic" is the second crushing, soul mangling, neck bustin' album from Texas hardcore thrashers Power Trip, recorded by Arthur Rizk (Inquisition), mastered by Joel Grind (Poison Idea, Toxic Holocaust) and features cover art by Paolo Girardi. Power Trip is a real band like no other. Their raw energy, musical proficiency, perfect song structure, rich tones, fierce riffs, persecution and collective attitude have seeded them as one of the most prolific underground staples in the US metal, punk and hardcore scenes. Power Trip has relentlessly toured the world for years with the likes of Anthrax, Lamb Of God, Cro-Mags, Negative Approach, Turnstile, Backtrack, Eyehategod, Bane, OFF! and more, and has performed with countless others, in addition to pummeling audiences at major festivals all over the USA, Europe and beyond.) 10.00

SLEEP - dopesmoker TAPE (southern lord - It is with an immense amount of pride that we bring you a mighty offering from the gods known as Sleep! In 2011, Southern Lord was contacted by Sleeps' Al Cisneros about the possibility of releasing a deluxe version of the classic Sleep recording: Dopesmoker. Cisneros wanted to breathe some new life into the old beast and finally have the original vision of the album fully realized. Southern Lord was overwhelmingly ecstatic about the challenge of taking the reigns of one of the most important recordings in the history of Heavy Metal! The Lord version features brand new artwork by long time Sleep artist, Arik Roper, who created something specifically special for the albums' rebirth. The biggest difference between this new version and the old releases is the phenomenal remastering job by From Ashes Rise guitarist, Brad Boatright (OFF!, Noothgrush, Deviated Instinct). His vision was to enhance the original recording without changing it drastically. What he has done makes this epic opus sound invigorated, more powerful with renewed clarity and all-around unbelievably mammoth. His work was enthusiastically approved by the band and considering how focused, vigilant and protective of their masterpiece the band is, that is nothing short of a miracle!) 10.00

LP

BOB MOULD - Sunshine Rock LP (merge - The cliché circulated after the 2016 election foretold a new artistic golden age: Artists would transform their anger and anxiety into era-defining works of dissent in the face of authoritarianism. Yet BOB MOULD calls his new album Sunshine Rock. It’s not because Mould likes the current administration. His decision comes from a more personal place—found in Berlin, Germany. “Four years ago, I made plans for an extended break,” Mould explains. “I started spending time in Berlin in 2015, found an apartment in 2016, and became a resident in 2017. My time in Berlin has been a life changing experience. The winter days are long and dark, but when the sun comes back, all spirits lift.” Three years in Berlin would quite literally shed new light on Mould’s everyday mindset. This being Bob Mould, Sunshine Rock still has darker moments. “Lost Faith,” for example, has him quietly lamenting, “I’ve lost faith in everything.” The Mould of 1990 may have wallowed in the feeling, but the Mould of 2018 jumps into a hooky, bombastic chorus where he sings, “Really gotta stop this now, this is your / Last chance to turn around, I know we / All lose faith from time to time, you / Better find your way back home.” Those cathartic moments in “Lost Faith” foreground a surprising element of Sunshine Rock: Mould’s rawest vocals since his throat-shredding days in HUSKER DU.) 20.00

BUBBHA THOMAS & THE LIGHTMEN - Creative Music: The Complete Works 8xLP (now again - Revolutionary, spiritual jazz bandleader, drummer, and activist from Houston. This is the definitive box set of his four classic albums with his Lightmen band, each mastered from the original tapes, expanded with bonus tracks and alternate mixes. Bubbha Thomas had toured America with R&B revues, served as a session musician for Peacock and Back Beat Records, and played straight ahead jazz with legends before the political and social upheaval of the late 1960s led him to a path first charted by Coltrane. His first set of self-issued albums predated the deep-set, maverick jazz issued by the likes of Tribe and Strata East and were a harbinger of best of the 1970s jazz underground. Over the course of the decade, he contributed to a collective voice of resistance to the musical and cultural status quo that is just beginning to be understood. Each album contains 2LPs and comes with a download card for WAV files, and footage of live performances included. Booklet detailing Thomas and his band’s remarkable trajectory also included in the set.) 110.00

CASS McCOMBS - Tip of the Sphere DLP (epitaph - Cass McCombs has been knocking about for many years now and is one of those artists where two albums don't sound the same. He is continually tweaking and pushing his sound into new territories and on this his 9th album he has recorded the songs in on time and place ensuring that the album is his most consistent statements of intent. ) 25.00

DECADANCE - On and On (Fears Keep On ) 12“ (mannequinn - Mannequin Records presents a new press of Decadance "On And On (Fears Keep On)", one of the most iconic underground Italo-wave track ever. Produced by Franco Rago & Gigi Farina, the masterminds behind cult italo disco projects ‘Lectric Workers, Wanexa, Expansives, Atelier Folie, Peter Richard and many more, the single was originally released in 1983 by Proto Records. Permeated by a dark a eerie synths, a perfectly programmed Roland TR-808 and an outstanding analog production, "On and On (Fears Keep On)" belongs to what we like to define "dark italo disco" or "italo wave". Here's there's an extra touch of cosmic / interstellar feeling, sharing the same feelings (and the same synthetic hardware) of "Spacer Woman". Not a intergalactic travel this time, but the wait for somebody to come from the sky. ) 13.00

ELI KESZLER - Stadium DLP (shelter - back in stock NewYork-based artist Eli Keszler is at the apex of his career. This year alone he’s had a three-month-long solo exhibition (“Blue Skies” at Fuse Arts, Bradford, UK), performed internationally in a duo with Laurel Halo, collaborated with noted Hungarian author La´szlo´ Krasznahorkai, taught experimental composition and performance at Camp in the Pyrenees mountains, composed music for Turner Prize– winning visual artist Laure Prouvost, and most recently embarked on a world tour with Oneohtrix Point Never. “Stadium” is his new album for Shelter Press. As his ninth solo record,“Stadium” reflects his move from South Brooklyn to Manhattan, where he produced the album. The constant blurry motion and ever-changing landscapes of the fast-paced island helped him modify and shape his sound into a new kind of film noir. “After we moved into our East Village apartment,” Keszler explains, “we found a guitar pick on the floor that read ‘Stadium’. We looked at each other at the same time and had the same thought. It could have gone any number of ways.” Indeed, there is a startling amount of expression at play on each track, where intersections of melody, restraint and rhythm are used to challenge the idea of memory, impression and space. Keszler is often mistaken for an electronic musician, but in fact his sounds are raw and natural, produced by hand live in-situ. His performance with the drumset and acoustic percussion are central to his work. He produces almost impossible textures through self-realized methodologies: cascading melodies, a shadow of voices, and a unique pointillistic materiality. Although playing with the intensity of digitally-created music, his communications are done live with no processing. These haptics are what give “Stadium” its depth and its warmth. In a recent interview for Dazed, collaborator Oneohtrix Point Never comments, “I’ve always described his playing as bacterial. He’s able to parallax into very small, very acute, very specific relationships between percussive textures. It’s beyond just being a drummer — he’s a world-building percussionist.”) 30.00

GHEDALIA TAZARTES + MAYA DUNIETZ - Schulevy Maker LP (holotype - Holotype Editions was founded as a means of bringing out music by some of the most unique and peculiar artists of the last decades. What could be more fitting for the imprint's seventh release, than the duo of cult artist Ghédalia Tazartès and multi-instrumentalist, composer and singer Maya Dunietz. Recorded live at Cafe Oto, in December 2013, Schulevy Maker documents the duo's first live appearance. An amalgam of bizarre samples, concrete sounds, live piano and bells, juxtaposed with the otherworldly voices of Dunietz and Tazartès. At times light and humorous, at others dark and ritualistic, Schulevy Maker can hardly be labeled or tagged. The album title refers to Shoemaker-Levy 9, a disrupted comet that collided with Jupiter in July 1994. Tazarte`s and Dunietz freely reassembled the syllables of the comet's name, coming up with this obscure title. A truly life-affirming record, by two artists defying categorization, Schulevy Maker comes in a limited edition of 300 copies, pressed on black vinyl with a beautiful cover designed by We Are Still Bold and Beautiful.) 18.00

JACOB KIRKEGAARD - arc LP (holotype - Holotype Editions presents a new work by acclaimed sound artist Jacob Kirkegaard. Arc was originally commissioned for INMUTE ’14 as a soundtrack to Carl Th. Dreyer’s silent film The Passion of Joan of Arc (1928). In this new edit, running to just under 36 minutes, Kirkegaard’s refined mastery of tone unfolds in two arc-shaped tracks dedicated to the LP format.) 18.00

JOZEF VAN WISSEM & JIM JARMUSH - An Attempt to Draw Aside the Veil LP (sacred bones - Experimental lute player Jozef Van Wissem and acclaimed film director and musician Jim Jarmusch have a working relationship that dates back to 2006, when they ran into each other on the street in New York City and quickly struck up a friendship. Van Wissem contributed to the soundtrack for Jarmusch’s 2013 movie Only Lovers Left Alive, and the two have collaborated on three previous studio albums. An Attempt to Draw Aside the Veil delves into the theology of William Blake and Emanuel Swedenborg, this time also exploring the work of Russian occultist and philosopher Helena Blavatsky. The album is mostly instrumental, so the dialogue between the esoteric thinkers who inspired it and Van Wissem and Jarmusch is expressed in the song titles — fittingly arcane phrases like “Concerning the White Horse,” “The Two Paths,” “When the Sun Rises Do You Not See A Round Disc of Fire.”) 21.00

KEITH HUDSON - pick a dub DLP (vip - A crucial piece of the dub canon, produced way back in 1974 by Keith Hudson. A strong case can be made for Pick a Dub being one of the very first dub works, taking earlier tracks and filtering, echoing and otherwise re-organising them. The sound is sparser than some later dub, allowing each element of the mix to shine. Reissued by VP, with bonus tracks.) 22.00

KNUD VIKTOR - Les Ephémères LP (institut fur - The lost masterpiece Les Éphémères by the self labeled ‘sound painter’ Knud Viktor (1924-2013) now sees its first ever release by Institute for Danish Sound Archaeology – 40 years after it was conceived. Viktor’s pioneering work – his Images Sonores – are composed of field recordings of insects, animals and the his surroundings.) 25.00

LAWRENCE ENGLISH & WERNER DAFELDECKER - Shadow Of The Monolith LP (holotype - ltd to 300 Shadow of the Monolith is the collaboration of acclaimed artists Lawrence English and Werner Dafeldecker. Recorded across the Antarctic Peninsula and produced in Brisbane Australia, Shadow of the Monolith works across aesthetic disciplines exploring electroacoustic transformations of atmospheric, hydrophonic and ionospheric materials. The raw materials have been layered, processed and structured into a record that drifts from dense microscopic cracks to vibrant shifting frequencies, from sections of profound white stillness to storms of intense activity, from intense light to improbable dark and from immersive macro-spaces to non-spaces. Lawrence English is composer, media artist and curator based in Australia. Working across an eclectic array of aesthetic investigations, English’s work prompts questions of field, perception and memory. English utilizes a variety of approaches including live performance and installation to create works that ponder subtle transformations of space and ask audiences to become aware of that which exists at the edge of perception. Werner Dafeldecker’s background is in European modern music and improvisation, examination of graphical notations, Fluxus, minimal music, electro acoustic music, jazz and field recordings. His musical projects are often inspired and deduced by outside influences such as architecture, physics, photography and film. Longtime sound and structure studies and the formulation of distinct articulations are in the center of his work as a composer and musician and are parallel to technological developments often connected with electronic form.) 18.00

MICHAEL CHAPMAN - true north LP (paradise of bachelors - The masterful follow-up to his universally celebrated 2017 album 50, Michael Chapman’s True North finds the elder statesman of British songwriting and guitar plumbing an even deeper deep and honing an ever keener edge to his iconic writing. This authoritative set of predominantly new, and utterly devastating, songs hews to a more intimate sonic signature—more atmospheric, textural, and minimalist than 50, stately and melancholy in equal measure. Recorded in rural West Wales, True North unflinchingly surveys home and horizon, traveling from the Bahamas to Texas to the Leeds of Chapman’s childhood, haunted by the mirages of memory and intimations of mortality. Joining him on this introspective journey is a cast of old friends and new disciples: once again Steve Gunn produces and plays guitar, and fellow UK songwriting hero Bridget St John sings, collaborating with cellist Sarah Smout and legendary pedal steel player BJ Cole, who has accompanied everyone from John Cale to Scott Walker, Elton John to Terry Allen, Felt to Björk to Brian Eno. ) 22.00

POWER TRIP - Opening Fire: 2008-2014 LP (dark operative - To kick off their celebration of 10 years as a band, Dark Operative is proud to present "Opening Fire: 2008-2014," a complete collection of Power Trip's earliest non-LP output. The release documents the self-titled 7", "This World" (from "The Extermination Vol: 2" LP compilation on Flatspot Records), "Hammer Of Doubt" (2010 version from "America's Hardcore" LP compilation on Triple-B Records), and the entirety of "The Armageddon Blues Sessions." All tracks have been lovingly remastered by the band's longtime producer Arthur Rizk, with the release being rounded out by stunning artwork from Portland illustrator Matt Stikker and photography by Angela Owens.) 22.00

REINHOLD FRIEDL - Music For Piano, ... Spring/Flower/Cracker/Stream LP (holotype - Zeitkratzer member Reinhold Friedl revisits the piano guts some years after his much album Inside Piano (2011). While Friedl's first solo album defined the practice of playing on the strings of a grand piano," Music For Piano, ... Spring/Flower/Cracker/Stream" mixes piano with concrete and quasi-electroacoustic, freely moving from moving from plain motifs to walls of noise. A truly beautiful and ear-pleasing record that unashamedly shows the composer's and performer's love for the piano. Reinhold Friedl studied the piano with Renate Werner and Paul Schwarz in Stuttgart, Alexander von Schlippenbach and Alan Marks in Berlin, composition with Mario Bertoncini (nuova consonanza) and Witold Szalonek. He has collaborated with musicians like Phill Niblock, Elliott Sharp, Alvin Lucier, Keiji Haino, Lou Reed, Carsten Nicolai, Laurie Anderson and has released more than hundred CDs. All tracks composed and performed by Reinhold Friedl Recorded at the School of Music of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki on the 11 and 12 March 2017 by Yannis Paxevanis Mixed by Yiannis paxevanis and Reinhold Friedl at Subway Studio Mastered by Nikos Lavdas at Kiwi, Athens Cover photo by Reinhold Friedl) 18.00

RUSTIN MAN - drift code LP (domino - oh Talk Talk where art thou? With Mark Hollis last seen in the early 2000s trying to learn the clarinet this most brilliant and influential bands has been on hold. However not all is lost. Bassist Paul Webb aka Rustin Man is back with a new LP. His previous one was in collaboration with Portishead's Beth Gibbons. Here he goes it alone. ) 23.00

SHINICHI ATOBE - butterfly effect DLP (dds - Warm, laid back Dub House / explorative Ambient album *Full-length debut from the elusive Shinichi Atobe, known for an incredible 12' on Chain Reaction almost 15 years ago and never seen or heard from since. Audio mastered and cut by Matt Colton, Vinyl purchases come with a download of the full album plus 4 bonus tracks dropped into your account* Shinichi Atobe has managed to stay off grid since he made an appearance on Basic Channel's Chain Reaction imprint back in 2001. He delivered the second-to-last 12' on the label and then disappeared without a trace, leaving behind a solitary 12' that's been selling for crazy money (theres a copy up on discogs at the moment for $600 - go figure) and a trail of speculation that has led some people to wonder whether the project was in fact the work of someone on the Basic Channel payroll. That killer Chain Reaction 12' has also been a longtime favourite of Demdike Stare, who have been trying to follow the trail and make contact with Atobe for some time, whomever he turned out to be. A lead from the Basic Channel office turned up an address in japan and - unbelievably - an album full of archival and new material that after a lot of hard work has been assembled and compiled by Demdike for this debut album. And what a weird and brilliant album it is - deployed with a slow-churn opener that sounds like a syruppy Actress track, before working through a brilliantly sharp and tactile 9 minute Piano House roller that sounds like DJ Sprinkles at his most bittersweet, before diving headlong into a heady, Vainqueur inspired droneworld. It's a confounding album, full of odd little signatures that give the whole thing a timeless feel that's completely detached from the zeitgeist - like a sound bubble from another era. This is only the second album release on Demdike Stare's DDS imprint following on from Nate Young's 'Regression Vol.3' last year, who knows what they might turn up next.) 25.00

THE STRANGER - Bleaklow DLP (history - 2LP: 2019 Repress, black vinyl, ltd. to 300 copies One of the most destitute and absorbing albums in Leyland Kirby’s canon is finally given a much needed vinyl pressing, following on from its initial CD release 6 years ago. ‘Bleaklow’ is harrowing from the start, the opening “Something To Do With Death” reverberating dread via layers of unstable, radiant drones punctuated with pained, hi- pitched howls that cut through the mix with violent intent. "Solemn Dedication" adds percussion to the mix and sits somewhere between classic John Carpenter and Nate Young, but it’s on ‘Indefinite Ridge’ that things really take a turn towards that eerie, destabilising sound Kirby can do so well, like a standout BoC vignette pounded by the rattle of industrial machinery malfunctioning in the background; it’s at once deeply unsettling and oddly comforting. "A Melody Drags Me Back" recalls the spirit of Kirby’s best known productions as The Caretaker, except in place of those old 78’s you get just the vaguest hint of life and colour beneath the endless layers of sonic unease. The album ends with ‘Ominous Sunset’, an incredible 6 minute coda that’s perhaps best compared to Kirby’s ‘Sadly, The Future Is No Longer What It Was’ set, sounding like Vangelis’ score for Bladerunner aged and degraded yet still somehow conveying all it’s retro-futuristic romance. It’s an astonishing ending to one of Kirby’s finest albums.) 30.00

WILLIAM TYLER - goes west LP (merge - WILLIAM TYLER's "new record, Goes West, is the best music that he’s ever made. I’m sure of this because I know and love all of his music intimately, and this album moves me the most, and the most consistently. The first time I heard it was in the late spring in the Texas Hill Country, rolling between limestone and scrub. I was on a cleanse then—no alcohol, no drugs, no evil thoughts—and was astonished at the emotional clarity that the album held. It offered up a model for what I wanted my head to feel like. Goes West marks a sort of narrowing of focus for William’s music; it sounds as though he found a way to point himself directly towards the rich and bittersweet emotional center of his music without being distracted by side trips. Perhaps this is down to the fact that William only plays acoustic guitar on the album, a clear and conscious decision considering that he is one of Nashville’s great electric guitarists. The band that performs Goes West alongside William—including guitarists MEG DUFFY and BILL FRISELL, bassist and producer BRAD COOK, keyboardist JAMES WALLACE, drummer GRIFFIN GOLDSMITH, and engineer TUCKER MARTINE—is the best and most sympathetic group of players that William could have assembled to play these songs..."—M.C. Taylor, Durham North Carolina) 20.00

7“

LAS POFTAS / COLD BRATS - split 7“ (summercide - Bucharest riot grrrl garage punks LAS POFTAS have joined forces with their local pals from 80s inspired goth and post punk tinged hardcore act COLD RATS, a new band formed by former and current members of Bucharest bands BASTOS, ROTHEADS, CARDINAL, and VOID FORGER, for a new diversified, two headed punk split record showcasing 2 different takes on punk.) 6.00

LP

BASTOS - Second Favourite Person LP (summercide - Romania’s saddest boys Bastos are back! This time with a full-length and no longer solely instrumental. Second Favourite Person has been out just for a few days but we already cried a few times over it. Not just because we’re doing a show for them in Sofia, but because we loved their previous record. Not sure how we feel about the band having lyrics now, but we probably like it as well. Vocals are emo to the bone, slightly put back in the mix so they’re definitely bringing a new intensity to the sound and helping Bastos keep their listeners challenged and excited (and sad). Some of the lyrics are in Romanian, others are in English, but they’re short and sincere and we doubt you’ll have hard times understanding them. Second Favourite Person is a crazy, friendly and yet very emotional ride. I kind of like their new approach to production. While their debut split 7″ was clean and spacey, this one is raw, lively and edgy. Probably it was recorded live, who knows. Only thing we know the band did it by themselves and we love that. DIY and sad forever. Give it a spin, grab it for however you can. Make them sad boys happy. (DIY Conspiracy)) 13.00

DIE TÖDLICHE DORIS - Das Typische Ding - REENACTMENT (I) LP-BOX (major - Edition of 400 copies. LP box with 31 sound recordings of dildos and vibrators - A noble, stamped and numbered binder made of bookcardboard with 31 illustrations by Tabea Blumenschein and 31 reviews by Katrin Kämpf on natural paper - Infotext by Wolfgang Müller in German and English. Die Tödliche Doris are back, no kiddin': in the sound spectrum of thirty-one contemporary dildos and vibrators, we are residing in 2019 with a resurrection of The Deadly Doris. She now appears to us as a performer, musician and instrument in one. Doris has never been that close to us. Tabea Blumenschein, a band member of the first hour, made illustrations of all 31 dildos and vibrators. In the Neuköllner recording studio of Frieder Butzmann cultural scientist Katrin Kämpf put the devices into operational and receptive readiness. Her reviews from the magazine L_Mag can be found in the original German version and translated by Anne Gaschütz on the backs of the corresponding portraits. Wolfgang Müller wonders: What exactly was that, the typical thing? A female breast, an oddly shaped phallus or clitoris? Was it a dildo design? Or just a normal penis with supporting spines inside? Wolfgang Müller founded Die Tödliche Doris in 1980, presenting the public persona of Doris as a constantly shifting entity that deliberately engaged the contradictions of the human condition. The band often referenced themselves in the third person singular, alluding to Doris as a fully-formed female character with explosive, colorful emotions "I was trying to think of some music that was equally as genuinely "weird" as The Lemon Kittens and Karl Blake. Basically, the only members on this list were The early Residents, Captain Beefheart's Trout Mask era (Too Popular these days?), Sun Ra, maybe Coil (?), and....ahh!.... Die Tödliche Doris! This stuff easily passes the famous Clearing the Pub test, hitherto known as "Wyatting".(The verb "Wyatting" appeared in some blogs and music magazines to describe the practice of playing unusual tracks on a pub jukebox to annoy the other pub goers;obviously inspired by the solo work of Robert Wyatt.) Karl Blake may have mastered the odd logic of dreams, but The Deadly Doris (Englische version), have mastered the illogic of a very creepy dream experienced under the influence of half a litre of out of date "Night Nurse". Full of everything you need; desperate screamed vocals.....in German! Scraping violin strings! Incompetant childlike drumming! And no recognisable reference to modern pop culture. This music is like a Primal Scream from a long forgotten prison cell; which I suppose West Berlin was a large version of when these nutters were active. Unhinged genius!!" Die or DIY) 45.00

EAGLEHASLANDED / LEFT TO STARVE - split LP (various - Most active diy bands from Croatia and Serbia at this moment.. Splendid mix of sludgy blackened hardcore and 90´s emoviolence. Surely Record for your collection.) 13.00

OJNE - Prima Che Tutto Bruci LP (various - After an EP, "Undici/Dodici", and two splits, the Italian four-piece has finally released their first full length, "Prima Che Tutto Bruci". It's their first album with a new singer, written and recorded between 2014 and 2016 in Milan, mixed and mastered in the States by Mike Moschetto and Brad Boatright. The classic sound of Italian screamo meets the structures of post-hardcore and the atmosphere of post-rock, in a vivid concept album about violence, growth, hope and revenge that perfectly describes the times we're living with a passionate, heartbreaking fury. ) 13.00

SIR RICHARD BISHOP & W. DAVID OLIPHANT / KARKHANA WITH NADAH EL SHAZLY - Carte Blanche LP (unrock - It took more than just some time and imagination to believe that Carte Blanche, this piece of astonishing contemporary music by some of the most talented and able musicians of the international avant-circuit, could be realized. Karkhana, a highly explosive mostly Middle Eastern/Mediterranean ensemble -- Sam Shalabi (Land Of Kush, Shalabi Effect, Dwarfs Of East Agouza), Sharif Sehnaoui ("A" Trio), Michael Zerang (Peter Brötzmann, Hamid Drake, Jaap Blonk, Vandermark, etc.), Mazen Kerbaj ("A" Trio), Maurice Louca (Dwarfs Of East Agouza), Tony Elieh, Umut Caglar (Konstrukt) -- is weaving a tapestry of sound for Egyptian songstress Nadah El Shazly's voice to slide deep into. On the other side, two grand seigneurs of underground, ex-Sun City Girls and Rangda guitar whirlwind Richard Bishop and W. David Oliphant (Maybe Mental) play it loud. Far Eastern post-industrial. Very heavy, sharp, and crystal clear. Ripe. Carte Blanche will be released as a one-time pressing. It is released as a part of Unrock's Saraswati Series. Vinyl cut by Peter Koerfer at Ivory Tower. Extra-heavy deluxe cover, printed cardboard insert. 140 gram vinyl.) 25.00

V/A - Kankyō Ongaku 3LP-BOX (lita - Light In The Attic’s Japan Archival Series continues with Kankyō Ongaku: Japanese Ambient, Environmental & New Age Music 1980-1990, an unprecedented overview of the country’s vital minimal, ambient, avant-garde, and New Age music – what can collectively be described as kankyō ongaku, or environmental music. The collection features internationally acclaimed artists such as Haruomi Hosono, Ryuichi Sakamoto and Joe Hisaishi, as well as other pioneers like Hiroshi Yoshimura, Yoshio Ojima and Satoshi Ashikawa, who deserve a place alongside the indisputable giants of these genres. In the 1970s, the concepts of Brian Eno’s “ambient” and Erik Satie’s “furniture music” began to take hold in the minds of artists and musicians around Tokyo. Emerging fields like soundscape design and architectural acoustics opened up new ways in which sound and music could be consumed. For artists like Yoshimura, Ojima and Ashikawa, these ideas became the foundation for their musical works, which were heard not only on records and in live performances, but also within public and private spaces where they intermingled with the sounds and environments of everyday life. The bubble economy of 1980s Japan also had a hand in the advancement of kankyō ongaku. In an attempt to cultivate an image of sophisticated lifestyle, corporations with expendable income bankrolled various art and music initiatives, which opened up new and unorthodox ways in which artists could integrate their avant-garde musical forms into everyday life: in-store music for Muji, promo LP for a Sanyo AC unit, a Seiko watch advert, among others that can be heard in this collection. Kankyō Ongaku is expertly compiled by Spencer Doran (Visible Cloaks) who, with a series of revelatory mixtapes as well as his label Empire of Signs (Music For Nine Postcards), has been instrumental in shepherding interest in this music outside of Japan. Together with Light In The Attic’s celebrated anthologies I Am The Center and The Microcosm, Kankyō Ongaku helps to broaden our understanding of this quietly profound music, regardless of the environment in which it’s heard.) 62.00

7“

ANGEL FACE / 1984 - Henri Flesh Archives 2x7“ (salted city - A cool double 7-inch featuring two French punk bands from 1977, both bands starring Henri Flesh on vocals.) 12.00

CHAOS - White Punks On Slope 7“ (danger - Lost tracks recorded in August 1977. In the beginning of 1976 Patrick, Philippe, and Ronald played in BRUMES, a band that mostly played covers of Yardbirds, Cream...etc. After multiple trips to London, they discovered Punk Rock records like the Adverts, 999, the Vibrators, Buzzcocks, Sham 69 and many more. When they returned to France in March 1977, CHAOS was born! Their songs were recorded in the suburbs of Paris in a practice space located in the garden of the drummer's parents. The story continues inside the record, including the full story of CHAOS in the insert that will accompany the 7“.) 7.00

DISTORTED PONY - Concrete Bruises 7“ (beauty fool - Distorted Pony are an American noise rock band formed in Los Angeles in 1986.[1] The band originally consisted of bass player Dora Jahr and guitarist David Uskovich accompanied by a drum machine. Eventually, they were joined by London May and Theodore Jackson on drums and percussion and Robert Hammer on guitar. The group broke up in late 1993, but they reunited in early 2010 and started to perform reunion shows. Concrete Bruises were originally released in 1990 by Piece of Mind Records. Limited 2018 European tour release of 300 white vinyl.) 8.00

SALINA - Time Will Eventually Kill Us 7“ (beauty - After a great demo comes the new 7" by Spanish trio Salina. 4 super catchy & driving indie / emo songs. RIYL: Cap'n Jazz, Texas Is The Reason,…..) 7.00


LP

55 DELTIC - You Could Own An American Home LP (SNCL - it's been a slow winding path to this point from first talking about various release options a few years ago but here it is. and it's certainly a perfect match for this label, a shared love of British Rail and lumbering diesel locomotives can get you a long way around these parts you know. You Could Own An American Home is a delicious slice of carefully constructed slowcore. elements of the likes of Duster and Codeine are to be found on here. this has to be one of the best looking LPs i've been lucky enough to have a hand in, a clear labour of love for the band. drive diesel trains. ) 14.00

AKIRA RABELAIS - CXVI DLP (col. vinyl) (boomkat - Akira Rabelais’ years-in-the-making new album CXVI, featuring collaborations with Harold Budd, Ben Frost, Biosphere, Kassel Jaeger and Stephan Mathieu, among others. It unfurls a quietly breathtaking, dreamlike sequence of events where early music meets a prism of shoegaze, ASMR, classical and textural sound design - huge recommemdation if yr into Felicia Atkinson, the GRM, Morton Feldman, Stephan Mathieu, Deathprod, Harold Budd… Set to be received as Rabelais' magnum opus, ‘CXVI’ finds the Hollywood-based composer challenging his usual working methods, pushing himself to refresh binds with longterm collaborators such as Harold Budd and Stephan Mathieu and forge new relationships with like-minded craftsmen such as Geir Jenssen (Biosphere), while also finding a new vocal muse in Karen Vogt of Heligoland, and also coaxing the recorded debuts of his friend Mélanie Skriabine, and filmmaker/photographer Bogdan D. Smith. The result of their time-lapsed endeavours is a record of divine subtlety and poignant patience, rendered with a mirage-like appeal. Opener ‘Which Alters When It Alteration Finds’, beautifully segues from a prickly bouquet of keys and lovebite-distortion penned with Ben Frost to a reverberant, spine-freezing piano coda from Harold Budd, before ‘Which Alters When It Alteration Finds’ smokily gives way to the sylvan shadowplay of the album’s masterful centrepiece, ‘Star to Every Wandring Worth’s Unknown’, where Mélanie Skriabine reads from Max Ernst’s ‘la femme 100 têtes’ against an exquisite veil of strings and keys realised by Akira with the GRM’s Kassel Jaeger a.k.a. François Bonnet.  The 3rd part of the album only becomes more sparse and isolationist, as Karen Vogt’s plainsong gives way to the tremulous, icy timbres of Akira’s processed guitar strokes, originally written for Cedrick Corliolis’ ’Tokyo Platform’ soundtrack, before the final side of ‘If Error and Upon Me Proved’ finds Akira pushing Geir Jenssen’s (Biosphere) synths into the red, emphasising a romantic soreness that turns into crushing noise, before Bogdan Smith’s whispered vocal melts into an ancient, arcane air inscribed to 78rpm vinyl by Stephan Mathieu and then sweetened, re-incoporated by Akira as the album’s stunning closing passage.  Riddled with bedevilling detail and utterly timeless in its scope, ’CXVI’ is a disorientating opus you’ll want to undergo over and again, for our money one of the great quiet albums of recent years.) 34.00

AKIRA RABELAIS - Eisoptrophobia DLP (boomkat - Boomkat Editions presents a first vinyl edition of Akira Rabelais’ sophomore album, ’Eisoptrophobia’ a spellbinding, uniquely decayed rendering of solo piano pieces by Erik Satie and Bela Bartók. The 2001 release forms a poetic farewell to the 20th century and a bittersweet embrace of new technological possibility. It’s required listening for lovers of The Caretaker’s haunted ballroom elegies, Stephan Mathieu’s electro-acoustic microphony, or indeed the original, classical pieces.) 28.00

ALEXANDER STANKOVSKI - Linie II LP + CD (The title gives an indication as to what this cycle is about: “Lines” as a catch-all phrase for melodic relationships. Differently formed – from a unison melody for two instruments to counterpoints of independent voices. Composed in different ways – from “calculated” proportioning to spontaneous writing. Expressive in different ways – from lament to competition.) 23.00

ALTARAGE - The Approaching Roar LP (seasons of - ALTARAGE emerge once again with 'The Approaching Roar'; their most violent and abrasive album yet. The album's nine tracks of suffocating, pitch-black death looses an onslaught of caustic, distorted riffs, cacophonous blasts and nebular vocal nihilism. 'The Approaching Roar' gives no quarter, and cements ALTARAGE as one of the genre's most extreme and unforgiving entities.) 23.00

CANNIBALE - Not Easy To Cook LP (born bad - If Cannibale’s members brought their breakfast back up when talking about "Not easy to cook", their listeners would be surprised. These fortysomethings being signed by Born Bad Records, the image of greaser-looking garage rockers would come to mind, but with bits of exotica stuck between the teeth, Nino Nardini & Roger Roger’s "Jungle Obsession" spilled on the table, and plastic-bottled tropical glam puked by some even more stupid incarnation than Wayne's World’'s Mike Myers. The stage is set, now you have to clean up everything. Why mention all this? Because there’s a world of difference between the beginning of Cannibale’s success story and this second album. It wouldn’t take much to feel as if Freddie Mercury showed up in a Renault 16 supersport to play marimba for old oafish rock fans. And actually, that's about it: The Rocky Horror Picture Show meets Fela Kuti in rain boots. And though the amount of cows hasn’t increased in the Normandy hole these guys hail from, the number of their shows did. Between "No Mercy For Love" (their 2017 debut album), and the new one "Not easy to cook", these Frogs – to quote the title of the opening track – did not switch from psyche cumbia to coarse-grained autotune, but rather roamed roads like doped cyclists: more than 100 dates in less than a year (including quite a few with Frustration and the Villejuif Underground), festivals such as Rock en Seine, and a eulogistic press review: See, Johnny Hallyday himself did not get such media coverage! So what's Cannibale’s secret? Being old and giving 19-year-old kids who just discovered marimba tutorials on YouTube a thrashing? Certainly, but it's a little more than a band of old fogeys. "The band learned it all on the road in less than two years," says Born Bad’s Jean-Baptiste Guillot. Songwriting-wise, they’ve known how to do for a long time. The members – survivors of various screwed-up musical projects – finally succeeded because nothing else than music mattered anymore. In that, the band’s deviant trajectory is not so different from Vox Low’s, another in-house signing.) 16.00

COSEY FANNI TUTTI - Tutti LP (conspiracy - [note]: This recording contains elements of intentional noise and percussive glitching, which should not be confused with possible vinyl surface noises. TUTTI is comprised of eight soundscapes: an audio self portrait comprising of manipulated sound recordings from Cosey’s life, music and art: “It’s the only album I’ve made that is an all encompassing statement expressing the totality of my being. A sense of the past in relation to the present and everything in between.” These eight pieces were originally conceived as the soundtrack to the autobiographical film ‘Harmonic Coumaction’, and performed live in February 2017, part of a series of events that accompanied the COUM Transmissions retrospective which opened Hull UK City of Culture 2017. Later that year, ‘Harmonic Coumaction’ was presented as an audio-visual installation for Cosey Fanni Tutti’s solo exhibition at Cabinet Gallery, London. Cosey Fanni Tutti explains: “Working on the COUM Transmissions exhibition also coincided with writing my autobiography - collating archive material and re engaging with my past. My work is a continuum, the past feeding the present and vice versa. The album is an interpretation of my past and present, of my understanding the shifting perceptions of how they inform one another. One form creating another through a metamorphic process.” On TUTTI, the music has been updated and enhanced with elements of the original tracks re-recorded and further processed specifically to create a unique stand-alone document, separate to the live performance and installation. Recorded at Cosey Fanni Tutti’s studio in Norfolk, the album, as on her debut release, Time To Tell, merges Cosey’s art activities with her exploration of sound: The album’s autobiographical theme is not locked into any specific time or place, the ‘voices’, instruments and sounds together span decades of my life, music and art. In this context my name 'TUTTI’ shifts from its role as a noun to perfectly represent the concept of the album, also acting as sign for me the artist. TUTTI is Cosey Fanni Tutti’s only solo album release since 1982’s Time To Tell. Time To Tell was recently given its first release on vinyl, on a long awaited official deluxe edition. The interim years between solo releases has seen a blisteringly prolific output as an artist and musician. Renowned for her art, her work in the sex industry, as co-founder of Industrial music and Throbbing Gristle, and her pioneering electronic music solo and as Chris & Cosey, Carter Tutti and Carter Tutti Void, she has created throughout with the motto “my life is my art, my art is my life”.) 34.00

CUCINA POVERA - Zoom LP (night school - Before "Hilja," Cucina Povera's debut album, her practise was confined to on-the-hoof, Tascam Zoom recordings. These recordings were recorded unselfconsciously, improvised, like looped audio diaries. These were the recordings that first enraptured us and we're extremely excited to share them with you. Zoom is a verité collection of situational recordings made by Cucina Povera - aka Finnish-born, Glasgow-based sound artist Maria Rossi - in intimate spaces full of acoustic or ideological intrigue, primarily using a capella voice. It is a document of different locations and moods that interested the recorder, a postcard look into the stream-of-consciousness processes of an artist developing her own language. Using little else other than a Tascam Zoom recorder and loop pedal these are highly personal recordings originally intended as notes for future compositions that ended up becoming the purest rendition of this first phase of Cucina Povera's music to date. Originally presented as WAV files named simply ZOOM---, these on-the-fly compositions are a perfect distillation of Rossi's practice. With no augmentation, not even a song-title, these bare, beautiful tracks become a materialist document of the wonder of the every-day. While Rossi's previous album, Hilja, was a sculpted whole that at times used post-production techniques and electronic instruments, Zoom presents acoustic sound as a source of joy and discovery largely without artifice. Rossi's voice is used a searchlight, shining into the crevices of a room's dark corners, or as on ZOOM0005, projected into a Coke bottle aperature, for an almost Shakutchi texture. Voice's meaning dissapates into texture, with rhythms created by simple hissing sounds and the interweaving of loops. ZOOM0001 interlocks 4 different a capella melodies to create a chorus, an improvised solo hymn that seems to rise and rise. ZOOM0010 uses staccato vocal bursts, like Meridith Monk huffing out Steve Reich rhythms, while the soloing Rossi expertly ducks in and out of the frame. Like the most celestial moments of her debut Hilja it is a religious experience but rendered more powerful in its naked form. Indeed, there are shades of Hilja in the sounds, with some strains resurfacing from that album, insinuating that Rossi's practise is a continuing form, a series of sentences in the artists' personal language that mutate over form, bending into new shapes. On Zoom, Rossi’s minimalism is fully stark, a process fully transparent and all the more celestially powerful because of it.) 20.00

DEWAERE - Slot Logic LP (bigout - Dewaere is a french noise punk band from Saint-Brieuc claiming to play loud, heavy, noisy rock and influenced by 1990’s bands and postpunk. The band consists of vocalist Maxwell Farrington, guitarist Julien Henry, bassist Marc Aumont and drummer Hugues Le Corre. If you had to live your last moments amongst piles of rubble, sporting your half shredded swimmers, walking around a pool miraculously still intact, Slot Logic by Dewaere would be the perfect sound track to suit such an apocalyptic occasion. In amongst the album’s sour guitars and mg42 style rhythms, the intense, boiling sounds from Dewaere peak the adrenaline throws that your first grenade; while the heart drums fast, ready to pounce.) 13.00

DOWNFALL OF GAIA - Ethic Of Radical Finitude LP (metal blade - At every stage of their career, Downfall Of Gaia’s output has been critically lauded and has garnered fevered responses from their devout fan-base, and their fifth album is primed to push things to the next level. Comprised of 6 tracks, Ethic Of Radical Finitude is the international quartet’s most melodic, most structured and most dynamic release to date, once more building upon the epic and unique sludgy, crusty, exploratory metallic sound that has organically evolved with every release. “It combines elements from our earlier releases with the path we took on Atrophy (2016),” states guitarist/vocalist Dominik Goncalves dos Reis. “There are long atmospheric parts with enough time to breathe, enough time to unfold, and on the other side there are harsh and melodic blastbeats. Each song is some kind of journey, with emotional ups and downs.”) 18.00

EDDIE RUSS - Fresh Out LP (soul jazz - Eddie Russ's Fresh Out was independently released in Detroit in 1974 and has remained a collector's item ever since. Russ was an important figure to emerge from the vibrant underground jazz scene that thrived in Detroit in the early 1970s, existing in the cultural and economic desolation of the city after the departure of Motown in the late 1960s.As well as including the classic jazz dance cut The Lope Song, Eddie Russ’s Fresh Out featured the debut of the group The Mixed Bag who subsequently recorded for both Tribe and Strata Records. Eddie Russ released two further classic jazz funk albums in the late 1970s, See the Light and Take a Look at Yourself.) 26.00

ENDLESS FLOODS - Circle The Gold LP (bigout - President Macron has been forced to call in his stormtroopers to quell the socio-politico uprising of the yellow vest brigade in Paris. Understandable, perhaps, as for successive weekends the Champs Elysees started to resemble a Beirut battleground rather than one of Europe’s most select shopping avenues. Perhaps a more peaceful approach for the under fire French president to consider was calling off the water cannons and rubber bullets and instead try unleashing Endless Floods’ new album on the angry mob. The two-track release is such a suffocatingly slow record that it almost defies belief to think anyone could muster the energy or enthusiasm to toss a petrol bomb at the gendarmes to this backdrop of unequivocally monolithic doom. Circle the Gold is the third album from the Bordeaux trio, formed three years ago by Stephane Miollan (Monarch, Bombardement), Benjamin Sablon (Bombardement, Shock) and Simon Bédy. It reaches out to melodic margins fractionally more so than their self-titled debut (2015) and their 2017 sophomore release II, while remaining an intrinsically prohibitive piece of work which slowly sucks the air from the room. Consisting of two lengthy compositions, the opening title track and ‘Seeds,’ neither offer little in the way of light relief. Indeed, little daylight is allowed to illuminate these two sustained angst-filled aural admissions which will at times have you reaching for a glass of water in a bid to dilute the despair. As with the likes of Bell Witch, whose own single track album Mirror Reaper figured so prominently in end of year charts, Endless Floods build walls of unrelentingly despondent doom in which residual drone elements are cushioned by no less demanding passages of ambient threads. The first blow has a ponderous start, like a slowly swinging pendulum, until Stéphane Miollan adds his vocals, a piercing anguished cry doing little to lift the mood. A sombre instrumental passage smooths the waters to such an extent that at times it’s a challenge to detect even the faintest ripple as Endless Floods play an extended waiting game. Some more generous guitar cuts toy with prog, occasional drum kicks from Benjamin Sablon preventing the navel-gazing from becoming over indulgent. Having kept you enthralled throughout the 18 minute opener, Endless Floods then proceed to do the same on the even longer ‘Seeds’ which opens with the kind of aching crawl that will resonate favourably with followers of Yob. Miollan’s pained cries at times are also reminiscent of Ohhms’ vocalist Paul Waller. ‘Seeds’ itself has a few more shades than the opener, and also hints at a more aggressive stance. While perhaps not quite latching onto any recognisable groove as such, the riff battles do occasionally fall into a pattern of sorts. It’s just that you need to work a little to align yourself to them. The 20-minute trawl through your subliminal senses also features an almost teasing ambient phase which is only broken when a percussion detonation finally bursts through.) 13.00

HIGH ON FIRE - Electric Messiah DLP (e1 - “I had a dream about Lemmy,” says Matt Pike, explaining the inspiration behind the title of High on Fire’s triumphant eighth album Electric Messiah. “When Lemmy was still alive I always got compared to Lemmy,” the gravelly-voiced guitarist elaborates, “so I had this dream where he got pissed at me. He gave me a bunch of shit, basically, and was hazing me. Not that he didn’t approve of me, but like I was being hazed. The song is me telling the world that I could never fill Lemmy’s shoes, because Lemmy’s Lemmy. I wanted to pay homage to him in a great way. And it turned out to be such a good title that the guys said we should call the album Electric Messiah. Although at first the working title was ‘Insect Workout With Lemmy’,” he adds with a big laugh. Electric Messiah, the best and most diverse of the band’s three albums with Ballou, and a record Pike cannot stop gushing about. Justifiably, too. There’s more speed than ever before (the aforementioned title track, the raucous opener “Spewn From the Earth”, and the thrashy, Sir Francis Drake-inspired “Freebooter”) but the dynamics of Electric Messiah hold the listener riveted. ) 28.00

KAUDERS - In Another Land Part II LP (god - The second part of the “In Another Land” trilogy can be considered as the indispensable conceptual antipode to Part I. It's everything that Part I is not and vice versa. It's sculptural and it's not pursuing the idea of development, but it's neither static nor repetitive: The mostly short pieces, consisting of heavily treated snippets of recorded (electro-) acoustic instruments are circling around themselves, always aiming to show their core idea to the listener. The thing is the thing is the thing is the thing... just the perspective is changing.) 23.00

LE VILLEJUIF UNDERGROUND - When will the Flies in Deauville drop? LP (born bad - A bass player looking like the main character of a surf movie shot in Chernobyl. A guitar player who’ll take french rap or thaï music over the Stooges, anytime. A keyboard player invited at reharsal by mistake who got the job cause he felt asleep on his synth. An australian poet-singer lost in France with no papers, sleeping in a cabin in the backyard of the Villejuif house where the whole band lives, sets up shows and records the most vital, exciting and enthralling records heard in France for a long, long time. PRs & managers would kill for such a story - this one is 100 % accurate and happened just like any great story : by chance. Just like the music of the Villejuif Underground, the result of happy accidents and unholy alliances, something that was never meant to be but became an astonishing fandango of sorts. Think Fat White Family covering Oingo Boingo with Beat Happening’s gear. Think Beck’s One Foot In The Grave remixed by Daniel Johnston and Brian Wilson. Think Ausmuteants, the Spits, the Feeling Of Love or A Frames when they really nailed it. Actually, you shouldn’t think about any of this cause whatever you do, you’ll still be far from reality. Way too far. Especially now with the release of When Will The Flies In Deauville Drop?, their second album and the first one on Born Bad Records. 11 tracks in a bit less than 40 minutes. 11 clumsy love letters to heavy backpacks, haunted castles, sleepy parisian districts and tours in China - which happened by total chance, thanks to some girl found asleep on their couch on new years eve. 11 reasons to think there’s a way out of 2019 - already. Your stormy love story with the Villejuif Underground starts here. Be sure to enjoy it. To the max. ) 16.00

LUCY RAILTON - Paradise 94 LP (col. vinyl) (modern love - Lucy Railton is a prolific performer who has appeared on countless recordings and collaborations with many important figures in contemporary music over the last few years. Paradise 94 is, remarkably, her solo debut - featuring archival, location and studio recordings which serve as a time capsule of all the myriad disciplines and influences that have brought her to this point in time. It both plays up to and shatters expectations of her music, which harnesses a duality of energies - acoustic/electronic, real/imagined, iconic/iconoclastic, pissed-off/romantic; out of place and androgynous - resulting in a visceral emotional insight and rare narrative grasp. Variegated, asymmetric, and located somewhere between her usual fields of exploration, Paradise 94 gives free reign to aspects of her creativity that have previously been subsumed into collaborative processes and interpretations of other composers’ work. Here, she’s free to probe, sculpt and layer her sounds through a much broader range of techniques and strategies, placing particular focus on non-linear structural arrangements and exploring the way her cello becomes perceptibly synthetic through collaging, rather than FX. At every turn Paradise 94 is bewilderingly unique. The A-side unfolds an oneiric, inception-like sequence traversing temporalities, timbres and tones from what sounds like a spectral ensemble playing on a traffic island in Pinnevik, to bursts of rabbit-in-headlights trance arps emerging from meticulously dissected musique concrète in The Critical Rush, and a collision of masked vocals, string eruptions and a deeply moving, light-headed Bach rendition in For J.R. On the other hand, Fortified Up on side B tests out a far rawer approach, sampling herself playing the same glissandi over and again, which she layers into a sort of perpetual, sickly motion, the Shepard Tone riffing on the listener’s psychoacoustic perceptions before calving off into a cathartic dissonant folk coda in its final throes.) 21.00

MARI SEKINE - Beginning LP (em - “Beginning” is, appropriately enough, the world-wide solo debut by Japanese percussionist Mari Sekine. She has been active since 2000 with numerous groups and artists, as well as providing music for the theatre. This latter experience is particularly in evidence throughout this piece, with its dramatic shifts and changing scenery, forming a very visual and evocative music with over fifteen percussion instruments entering and leaving the stage in their various roles. Sekine’s voice also takes a turn as a hauntingly benevolent melodic ghost. Fans of Midori Takada will find much to enjoy here, and her use of a wide range of instruments evokes Nana Vasconcelos. The propulsive rhythms and melodies will please admirers of Balearic grooves, Steve Reich and Roland P. Young. Also on offer here is a funky remix by German DJ/producer Lena Willikens, accentuating the tribal elements inherent in the original.) 18.00

MARY BELL - Histrion LP (danger - British '80s punk meets US '90s riot grrrl! 6 powerful tracks! No more blah-blah! Play it loud!) 13.00

OTO - Otology: 1982​-​87 LP (danger - OTO was started in 1982 in Nancy from a meeting between Farid Dahlab and Pascal Hubert. In 1981, the two men were members of the band G-STRING, Farid on drums and Pascal on keyboards. After difficult rehearsals punctuated by arguments between the members of the G-STRINGs, the two future OTO members decided to work together, with their inspiration coming more from synth duos like ORCHESTRAL MANOEUVRES IN THE DARK and KAS PRODUCT, with whom they shared the same music scene in Nancy. They used a Korg MS-10 that Pascal had just acquired, while Farid decided to abandon his drumming in favor of a Roland TR-66 Rhyhtm Arranger. After getting kicked out of the G-STRING, they continued to record at the same practice space and use some of their former band's instruments. And thus the first songs, the first premises of the OTO group were born: White Fly, Blue Arrow, Anyway, Satisfaction. Farid and François recorded their last song in the spring of 1987, No More Twist, the group’s swan song. ) 16.00

PARMESANO - Vida Extra + Parmesano! EP LP (beauty fool - Parmesano is not only the Spanish word for parmesan but it's also a Barcelona-based indie / mathrock band, complex and tricky tunes in the vein of Don Caballero or Cap'n Jazz. The 12'' includes the latest "Vida Extra" EP, plus some unreleased song and the classic Parmesano! EP from 2011!) 14.00

PYE CORNER AUDIO - Hollow Earth LP (ghost box - Hollow Earth is the new album from Pye Corner Audio aka Martin Jenkins, his third for Ghost Box. It’s conceived as a sequel to 2016’s Stasis. Where Stasis played with notions of outward cosmic exploration and the idea of suspended animation and sleep, Hollow Earth takes subterranean exploration and submerged psychologies as its theme. It draws on Berlin school synth improvisations, New Age reveries and the ghosts of 90s house euphoria to summon up images of vast, awe inspiring spaces and claustrophobic chambers. It sustains an atmosphere of wonder and adventure throughout, and like its companion piece, Stasis, it works equally as a soundtrack to physical as well as mental exploration. Pye Corner Audio specialise in majestic, cinematic electronica that evokes sci-fi soundtracks, dystopian futures and the sound of haunted dance floors.) 20.00

RICHARD YOUNGS - Memory Ain't No Decay LP (wayside and woodland - “It’s about noticing the world, not trying to change it” Wayside & Woodland are immensely excited to be releasing a record from one of the UK’s premiere experimental artists, Richard Youngs. The premise was simple; instead of offering Richard a style or genre for him to refract through his unique filters and facets, Wayside’s Ben Holton (epic45/My Autumn Empire) offered him a list of sorts, reflecting the ethos of the label as a whole. One of absorbing and reflecting the environment in which we live. The list included; Degradation of memory, decay, change, loss, the beauty of abandoned buildings and places, post-industrial wastlelands, 'edgelands', 'unofficial countryside', grass verges, woodland between housing estates. From these somewhat ethereal starting points, Richard set about recording an album. Memory Ain't No Decay is not a concept album. It is merely the sound of Richard Youngs stretching out over long one chord songjams. On this, possibly his 147th album, Youngsian zero histrionics inform all three tracks.) 25.00

SLAEGT - The Wheel LP (van - SLÆGT from Copenhagen, Denmark, is the sound and essence of four hearts and minds locking together and joining forces towards the unknown. The band has found their very own, unique style of playing heavy metal. Stylistically influences are drawn from a broad spectrum of such diverse movements as the NWOBHM, the black metal scene(s) of the 80’s and 90’s and everything in between and beyond. SLÆGT plays an epic blackened heavy metal but without any kind of limitation when approaching the style. They explore unseen territories and go beyond the obvious norms of heavy metal, which makes them sound fresh and progressive. The darkness within the riffs and lyrics flows with dark blasts of energy.) 18.00

SLEAFORD MODS - Eton Alive LP (german version) (extreme - German Edition with different back cover, german text instead of english (in places!) and german labels (Seite 1/Seite 2). Sleaford Mods are one of the most important, politically charged and thought-provoking duos currently making their mark on the UK music scene and beyond.  The new album, which features 12 new tracks from the prolific artists, was recorded in Nottingham. The record will be the first release on Jason and Andrew’s newly formed label ‘Extreme Eating’ and their first album since parting ways with Rough Trade Records.) 22.00

SPELLLING - mazy fly LP (sacred bones - Intriguing new one from Sacred Bones act SPELLING. The album tackles the dual realities of technological progress - the utopian and the apocalyptic - while backed by music that can flit from garbled R&B to scuzzy synth jams. ‘Mazy Fly’s’ 12-tracks reflect SPELLING’s seemingly contradictory impulses and finds a unique synthesis being formed from these seemingly combative forces.) 23.00

STEVE REID - Nova LP (soul jazz - As a radical jazz artist, Steve Reid played with an extraordinary group of artists – including Miles Davis, Sun Ra, Fela Kuti, James Brown, Ornette Coleman, Lester Bowie, Freddie Hubbard, Jackie McLean, Dionne Warwick, Archie Shepp, Chief Bey, Olatunji, Arthur Blythe, , Dextor Gordon, Gary Bartz, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Sam Rivers, Leon Thomas, Lonnie Smith and Horace Silver!) 26.00

SULPHUR AEON - The Scythe Of Cosmic Chaos DLP (dark green - van - Here comes the highly anticipated third full-length-album of SULPHUR AEON! Sounding overall powerful and sublime, “The Scythe of Cosmic Chaos“ electrifies with courage and creativity. This abysmal adventure, garnished with a mind blowing artwork by Ola Larsson, covers all facets of Death Metal and breaks new ground at the same time. The band's first two records "Swallowed By The Ocean's Tide" (2013) and "Gateway To The Antisphere" (2015) received massive worldwide praise by both fans and media alike and were placed amongst the most innovative and pioneering genre albums of recent years. SULPHUR AEON were, are and will remain the most ambitious and important Death Metal institution in Germany!) 26.00

SUNWATCHERS - illegal moves LP (toruble in mind - Anybody looking for psyched-out rock with a hint of free jazz and a ton of organ can get their fill here with the new Sunwatchers album. Illegal Moves hosts the usual jams approaching the excessive, left-field chord progressions, and endless solos (both guitar and organ), but also some slightly more meditative tunes -- at least in comparison to the proper noisy stuff. ) 20.00

SVARTIDAUDI - Flesh Cathedral DLP (van - All great things must first wear terrifying and monstrous masks in order to inscribe themselves on the hearts of humanity. Recorded at Studio Emissary in the early winter of 2011, Flesh Cathedral is an epic journey through labyrinthine nightmares and hallucinogenic initiation. Chronicling years of meditative abuse of body and mind, bearing the fruit of turmoil and transcendental decadence. As the debut full length of SVARTIDAUÐI, the Flesh Cathedral stands as a monument of transfigurations and apocalyptic lust. Cross the borders of nightmares... ...venture into the sphere of whorrors...enter the Flesh Cathedral.) 26.00

SVARTIDAUDI - Synthesis of Whore and Beast DLP (smoke grey - Transmission: Vibrating from the centre of a dead sun and manifested in the terrible shadow cast by the sect's debut offering, Flesh Cathedral, The Synthesis of Whore and Beast presents two apocalyptic hymns of blinding illumination and iconoclastic orgasms, tantric mantras to end all flesh) 18.00

SVARTIDAUDI - Revelations of the Red Sword LP (van - I am the flame that burns in every heart of man, and in the core of every star. I am Life, and the giver of Life, yet therefore is the knowledge of me the knowledge of death. -Liber Al vel Legis 2.6 On the 3rd of December 2018, six years to the day after the apocalypse, Svartidauði will unleash long awaited sophomore full length Revelations of the Red Sword upon the ashes of civilization. Once again recorded and produced at Studio Emissary by Stephen Lockhart and featuring artwork by David Glomba, the combined result is equally stunning sonically as it is visually. The 6 track, 47 minute album marks Svartidauði’s second release on legendary German imprint Ván Records. The Red Sword refers to the rays of a rising- and a setting sun, encompassing its contents in the fire and the fury of our world’s most creative and destructive force, the glowing God up above, the Sun - Celebrating its howling solar winds, all the while waiting with anticipation for the inevitable heat death of the universe.) 21.00

TAKAO - Stealth LP (EM - Stealth is certainly an apt title for this disarming collection of crypto-New Age. From its opening, one might be forgiven for assuming that what follows is a tableau of digital disruption, and noise in one of its less offensive iterations. However, Takao instead presents a rich and detailed tapestry of compositions that take New Age affectations, fashioning them into something far grander. There’s a penchant for the nai¨ve, the more garish of digital instruments in the vein of James Ferraro – but importantly, Takao steers away from submitting to gestures themselves nai¨ve or garish, opting instead to focus attention to a more nuanced, delicate style. Indeed, a more intrinsic tradition to posit “Stealth” as an inheritor of would be the Impressionism of Debussy, or even Satie, with Takao’s approach drawing light and composure from his instruments at their most bare and unadorned. Ever so pleasing and atmospheric, “Stealth” is remarkably affecting in its subtlety. - Nico) 24.00

TOUNDRA - ( II ) 2xLP (narshardaa - The second TOUNDRA 2lp rocks! after their glorious debut lp right now we are very impressed. Hate people comparing bands to other as they are always lying and exaggerating, but even if TOUNDRA are slowing down sometimes, they are kicking ass like a perfect new formed band outta the ashes of KYUSS and RUSSIAN CIRCLES and this without rocking the same boring riffs for hours and hours. Another band nobody is talking about, which is destroying almost every other band playing similar shit now and forever.) 18.00

TURIA / FLUISTERAARS - De Oord LP (eisen - Two of the Netherlands' most innovative black metal bands, Fluisteraars and Turia, have aligned to release a conceptual split album. Ever since releasing their debut 'Dromers', Fluisteraars have captured the attention of a wide audience of fans looking for depth and compositional grandeur in black metal. Turia, who have quickly released two acclaimed albums and a split with fellow-traveller Vilkacis, make this a highly interesting pairing for those who have been following the burgeoning Dutch black metal movement.) 18.00

THE WORK - Slow Crimes LP + CD (Reissue of this brutal post-punk meets Canterbury and electronic debut LP -  Bill Gilonis and Tim Hodgkinson formed The Work after Henry Cow, bringing along Rick Wilson, Mick Hobbs, Chris Cutler and future Hat Shoes vocalist Catherine Jauniaux on 4 tracks. The album is a series of songs in unusual structures with a harsh outlook on life, edgey and on the edge of rock form then and now. Recorded between September 1981 and January 1982 at Cold Storage Studios (engineered by Pete and Charles Bullen), London, England, and published in Japan.) 18.00

V/A - Antologia de Música Atípica Portuguesa Vol. 2: Regiões LP (In 1959 Michel Giacometti moved to Portugal and dedicated the following thirty years of his life recording traditional music all over the country. In the present decade Portuguese music has been thriving and finally travelling abroad, long gone are the days those hidden gems were kept in secret in this distant corner of Europe. The discovery of current Portuguese music sparked an interest to Portuguese music, past and present. With both of those ideas in mind, Giacometti and the interest in Portuguese music, “Antologia de Música Atípica Portuguesa” creates an anthology of current sounds to the future. You can see it as history being made or a broad catalog of sounds that live and breathe the experimental and electronic that is happening in Portugal. The first step happened two years ago with the releasing of the first volume on this anthology, “O Trabalho” (“The Labour”) and we now move onto Vol. 2, “Regiões” (“Regions”), with each track connecting with a different province from Portugal. Some names return to this volume, like Live Low with the beautifully haunting “Montemor” or Gonzo (our own Gonçalo F. Cardoso), affirming his path in building detailed and processed field recordings music. More than a list of names, or songs, this second volume of “Antologia de Música Atípica Portuguesa” recreates a passage throughout different landscapes of Portugal, constantly leaving a trail of past, present and future. The trail doesn’t limit itself to the music, but to the traditions contained in the sounds and the stories spelled by the words. The beautifully slowed haunting-waltz “Por Riba”, by Síria (Diana Combo), sets everything in motion and builds the way to Random Gods’ upbeat march “Gazulo à Estronca da Santosa”. “Malta Inquieta” (Ondness) embraces the most modern/contemporary side of this volume, proving that “Regiões” goes beyond the idea of catalog or even its own concept of “anthology” and provides music that’s hard to categorize or even judge by modern standards. We are not afraid to say it: “Malta Inquieta” is an experimental jazz-electronic modern gem. It’s followed by the guitar of Rui Carvalho, aka Filho da Mãe, with “Manta”, closing the A side with one of his enchantments. B side strikes with the aforementioned “Montemor”, setting the tone for a different trip, building up on more abstract and freeform music by Banha da Cobra (“Asylo”), Fantama (“Lamento das Beiras”) and the track by Gonzo. “Regiões” finishes with the right tone, fields recordings worked by Luís Antero, that tie the connection between Giacometti and the now – with the now still happening and building up on the story of the future “Antologia de Música Atípica Portuguesa”.) 20.00

V/A - Chebran - French Boogie 1981​-​1987 Volume 2 DLP (born bad - The French in the 80s were not faint-hearted: as some threw themselves heart and soul into music or business, others wouldn’t mind going bottomless to get themselves noticed… While Bernard Tapie soon realized his own fortune was rather to be found in business, many music-loving dreamers already imagined themselves in the sun, in an enchanting world made of funky rhythms and synthesizers. While the French National Front was growing in the shadow of François Mitterrand, these guys mixed New York-style funk with electronic, Eastern or African sounds. These musicians from all backgrounds – often lovers of “gentle pranking” as introduced by the newly-licensed independent radio stations – were seeking the easy money they were told about so much. With their genre-crossing arrangements and often chanted lyrics, they brought honor to the “SOS Racisme” generation, unconsciously outlining the nascent French contemporary urban culture. It must be said, the time was conducive to all kinds of mixes: following the left’s accession to power, many illegal immigrants had just been sorted out, and Southern cultures were in vogue in all fields. The French, while admiring Grace Jones’ “savage beauty” in Jean-Paul Goude’s advertisements, were enjoying their freshly-gained fifth week of paid vacation, tanning on the beaches of Maghreb. Following The Clash’s example, punks and rockers converted to reggae, and the new independent radios opened up their programming to “world music”. Even politicians – of all persuasions – frequented the select Parisian nightclub Keur Samba to discreetly scheme with the future of “Françafrique” to the sound of disco and exotic hits… At the other end of the pyramid, the successive waves of immigration enriched France in a much better way. With the rise of “Youth and Culture Centers”, the practice of musical instruments became affordable for those of humble background, allowing for new bands to appear. For these often France-born, albeit rootless music lovers, such a means of expression sounded like a opportunity to fit in while asserting their cultural heritage. Those who sought them out discovered an astounding oasis of new influences likely to appeal to a wider audience. Caught between the spirit of Gallic bawdiness and their own community hopes, the musicians from this singular scene probably didn’t succeed in life the way Bernard Tapie meant it. But their explorations left no room for doubt: by facilitating the rise of a new hybrid culture about to give birth, among others, to French hip-hop, those little-known artists indeed were off on an adventure, quite simply.) 22.00

V/A - Danger! La France a Peur! LP (danger - First compilation made by DANGER RECORDS, this volume called "La France a Peur" is dedicated to late 70s French punk rarities, NEVER released before.There were great and well-known punk bands like GAZOLINE, OLIVENSTEINS and GUILTY RAZORS and there were also unknowns degenerated teenagers, now give them a name with this compilation!) 15.00

V/A - Milano After Punk 1979-1984 LP (spittle - A superb compilation of mostly cassette only releases by obscure post-punk, cold wave and minimal synth bands active in the Milanese scene in the late 70s to mid 80s. Compiled by Italo-disco legend, Fred Ventura!) 18.00
