INUSHINI - Organisierte Ruhestörung 7“ (the alphacute series continous! here with four tracks by leipzigs breakcore veteran inushini, chairmen of his own label ohm52. four ruff breakcore tracks with the spirit of 97. beside alphacut and hom52 this is also a coop release with minoRobscuR_U, Phantomnoise Records and Scrotum Records . super limited and comes with sprayed labels and fould-out neoncolor sleave. banger!) 6.00

NOXEEMA - s/t 7“ (. NOXEEMA are old friends that know how to form a band. Originally started as a cross-continental summer band in 2014, they have morphed into a very casual local band in Portland, Oregon. This is the music you hear from under the floorboards at the local punk house. This is the kind of punk that exists because people are friends.) 6.50



LP

125 RUE MONTMARTRE - discography LP (thirty something - 125, Rue Montmartre was an emo band from Bielefeld, Germany. The band has been active 1999 - 2001 and put out a s/t seven inch, a split seven inch with Maggat and contributed some songs to a couple compilations. ) 17.00

COIL - The Gay Man's Guide To Safer Sex +2 LP (Here comes Coil's unreleased soundtrack for the VHS only, pre-internet, sexual education documentary entitled "The Gay Man's Guide To Safer Sex" released in 1992. Members for this project are John Balance, Peter "Sleazy" Christopherson and Danny Hyde. The OST, to quote John Balance's interview for Compulsion Online, "is [a] slightly new agey, progressive house type thing".  ) 25.00

DAISIES - What Are You Waiting For? LP (perennial - Clean pop for a new morning Like Sugar cubes in your tea. Waking up bleary in a poster dress A Paisley electronic underground A sonic marriage Something borrowed something blue for love purity and fidelity and another spite to the evil eye Knot- tieing in sweet pop confections put a daisies in your ear and a sixpence in your shoe 10 tracks 33RPM) 17.00

DER MODERNE MAN - Unmodern LP (rockers - Wiederauflage der zweiten DMM-LP von 1982 mit den Bonustracks von der Sandman Single. „(…), es brodelt von gewagten Arrangements, raspelnden, splitternden Gitarren, tribalen Rhythmen und gewitzten Texten“, schrieb Xao Seffcheque im Sounds 1982 zu der eben bei No Fun Records erschienen Platte „Unmodern“. Tatsächlich wurden Der Moderne Man von vielen Kritikern für ihre zweite Platte gefeiert und galten von nun an sogar als eine der wenigen wichtigen deutschen Bands. Das war nur folgerichtig, denn die Gruppe war nach diversen Umbesetzungen und Tourneen gewachsen und der Sound war kraftvoller und organischer als noch beim Vorgänger. Das lag zu einem guten Teil auch daran, dass nach dem Ausstieg von Ziggy XY der vormalige Bassist Mattus nun das Mikrophon übernommen hatte. Dennoch klingt auf „Unmodern“ nichts glattgebügelt und auf kommerzielle Verwertbarkeit getrimmt, sondern vielmehr ist es die Wandelbarkeit der Stimmungen, Texte und Musik, die die Eigenständigkeit von DMM ausmachen. Bei dem Opener „Anakonda“ verwebt sich der schlangengleich mäandernde Bass mit einem Text, der Erotik und Altes Testament verbindet. Der Titeltrack „Unmodern“ hingegen ist wohl als Parodie auf den damaligen Zeitgeist zu verstehen und erinnert an Kraftwerk oder Devo, trotzdem bleibt er mit verschmitztem Popappeal im Ohr. Auf dieser Platte sind etliche Perlen wie „Gurus & Geheimagenten“ und „Nicht warten“ (wieder) zu entdecken, die kompositorisch wie auch textlich wunderbar gelungen sind. Der Moderne Man klingen frisch, frech und selbstironisch, ohne sich dabei in kopflastiger Avantgarde zu verstricken! Um nochmal Xao Seffcheque zu zitieren: „Unmodern ist eine der modernsten deutschen Platten der letzten Zeit, zwischen Rock und Hose, Abenteuer und Freiheit, Hinz und Kunz, … einfach hervorragend.“ Das gilt auch heute noch.) 18.00

FORLET SIRES - Holy LP (cruel - Confronted with the complex beauty of “Holy”, it is no surprise to find oneself left behind in disorientation and confusion. Forlet Sires continue their explorations of uneasy, heavy music – making classification in genre terms rather complicated. The four songs on this album create this elusive net of insecurity – you thought you knew where it’s heading, but that is false. This is the band on yet unreached heights in songwriting and creating atmosphere. You can clearly see the urge and unique will of finding their own way in today’s field of heavy music – the surpassing of barriers is what you witness while following the band into their sonic abyss.) 25.00

GRAUZONE - Raum 12“ (wrwtf - Here comes the first ever vinyl maxi-single release for "Raum", Grauzone’s best-kept secret and underground mega-gem from 1980. The four-track affair includes the full title track sourced from the original reels, as well as a club-ready rework by Naum Gabo (Jonnie Wilkes of Optimo and James Savage) with help from Dennis Young of Liquid Liquid, and an extended edit by legendary Frankfurt DJ Ata (Robert-Johnson club, Playhouse/Klang/Ongaku labels). The 12 inch vinyl is cut at 45rpm and comes with a never-seen cover art by band member Stephan Eicher and a handmade Xerox hype sticker. Initally released almost 40 years ago on the beloved compilation Swiss Wave - The Album (Off Course Records) alongside the band’s massive hit "Eisbär", "Raum" is the biggest Grauzone track people have yet to discover. An über-infectious New York style bassline played by Christian "GT" Trüssel and frantic drumming by Marco Repetto blend with Martin Eicher’s hauntingly hopeless lyrics and Claudine Chirac’s saxophone escapades to personify post-punk heaven and all its wonderful anomalies. It’s disco with an edge, experimental pop music full of fear and loneliness, it’s The Cure infused with proto-techno and Swiss art chic. Or maybe, it’s simply one hell of a song that will make you dance and shout. It’s good! Further on the a-side, Naum Gabo’s rework takes Grauzone to modern dance floors with a thumping track and bounce-inducing groove on which Liquid Liquid’s very own Dennis Young adds magic in the form of marimba, Roto Toms, and EBowed guitar. The energy is electric, the sound is huge, a club banger with extra heart, ready for sound systems of all kinds. The b-side features Ata Macias’ fabled extended version of "Raum" (first released in 2010 via Live at Robert Johnson) that Stephan Eicher described as "the perfect Grauzone edit" (and it is!), plus a straight to the point radio edit of Naum Gabo’s rework.) 14.00

GRATITUDE - s/t LP + FLEXI 7" (col. vinyl) (thirty something - Gratitude was formed in 2003 by Mark Weinberg (originally of the band Crumb) and Thomas Becker (originally of the Get Up Kids). Initially called the Collision, the band was joined by Bob Lindsey on bass and Robby Cronholm (also formerly of Crumb) on vocals. After touring in 2002 with New End Original, which featured Far alum Jonah Matranga and Jeremy Tappero, Cronholm left the band and was replaced by Matranga. When Matranga joined, the band changed their name from the Collision to Gratitude. After picking up Matranga and changing their name, Gratitude signed to Atlantic Records. The group picked up Tappero as second guitarist before going into the studio. After Becker left the band in the middle of recording the record, drummer David Jarnstrom joined the band before the release of their self-titled debut album (Becker and other session musicians fulfilled the drum role during the recording of the album). Atlantic Records released Gratitude in 2005. The tracks "Drive Away" and "This Is the Part" were released as singles and received significant radio play both in the US and the UK. Gratitude's first tour for the album was in North America, supporting Jimmy Eat World (to whom the band has often been compared), and they were also on the bill for the 2005 Warped Tour and a leg of the 2005 Taste of Chaos. The band faced many difficulties after their album's release — the commercial response was somewhat poor, and Weinberg left the band in June for personal reasons, thus forcing Gratitude to continue touring as a four-piece. Many show cancellations throughout the second half of 2005 and rumors of the band being dropped by Atlantic put the future of the band at stake. Eventually Gratitude released a statement on November 25, 2005 saying that they had in fact decided to split after playing one final show at the Ascot Room in Minneapolis two days earlier. The members of Gratitude have gone on to various other projects, with frontman Jonah Matranga continuing with his solo work. Members, Jeremy Tappero and David Jarnstrom returned to their other band, Minneapolis rockers, Attention. In March 2007, bassist Robert Lindsey joined them. Mark Weinberg became a producer and writer. Former drummer Thomas Becker went to Harvard Law School and became a human rights lawyer. He currently plays in The Beautiful Bodies.) 20.00

KOKOMO - Totem Youth 2xLP (i corrupt - Kokomo have been an establish force on the post-rock scene for a number of years now and have always embraced heavier elements, but with their newest release "Totem Youth" the band have composed their most intense record to date, a grave reflection of the world that faces us when we gaze out the window. "Totem Youth" is the product of musicians from Germany, coming together to compose the music that most honestly reflects their feelings in the moment, with no pre-determined design going in. The result is weighty and dark, looming and uncompromising. But there is also residue of hope, echoes of light beyond the darkness.) 26.00

PRUNE DEER - Insufficient Postage LP (specific - Meet Prune Deer, an instrumental band from Hong-Kong that is currently at the forefront of the evergrowing Asian music scene. Formed in 2013 by Kwan Shing (drums), Jerry Sham (bass), Nature Hin and SF Tang (guitars), Prune Deer is playing its very own brand of « post rock meets math rock ». Never too far from the Japanese scene influences (reminding Lite or Toe, at times), the band never hesitates to go its own way, adding some aesthetic abstract influences such as ambient soundscapes and field recording clips. While mostly short and mostly instrumental, Prune Deer’s songs also offers a couple of famous female voices to its forward-thinking and rich ideas. Therefore, on Insufficient Postage (it’s very first international release), you’re treated to none other than Ashlet Tang and Haru Nemuri featurings. Emotional and heartfelt, this brand new release heavily influenced by Hong-Kong current political context will make you cry in awe and see beauty in life like you’ve never seen it before. FFO: Mogwai, Caspian, Mono) 16.00

QUALLUS - s/t LP (Sludge doom metal band from Leipzig, Germany with members of ex-Dezafra Ridge. FFO: Grief, Pallbearer,…) 14.00

RESTLESS - s/t LP (perennial - Olympia has so many guitars, they pile up around here like cord wood. Many are put to good use, and not as fire wood but as the axe that grinds the rock'n'roll touchstone. Dang it if Restless are not making the kind of rock'n'roll I read about as a teenager in fanzines like Back Door Man and Bomp!: searing, pounding, soaring and savage, yet terribly sweet, too. Raised on the radio and born to rock 8 tracks. 45RPM. This Power pop project features Olympia, WA Rocknroll artists Mirce Popovic (COUNTY LINERS, CCFX, TransFX), Paden Reed (GAG) and Reuben Storey (GUN OUTFIT, CHRISTIAN MISTRESS) along with newcomer. Recorded by the Olympia Engineer Jonny Wulf, this release continues the Olympia tradition of singular artist blazing trails !) 17.00

RUE DES CASCADES - Odes To Love, Flames To Paris LP (Rue des Cascades play music that combines ambient/post-rock quietness with louder post-hardcore/sludge sections. This is quite atypically done, though, and isn’t a case of simply juxtaposing clean/distorted or light/heavy sections; instead the band manipulate feelings and emotions, sometimes with heaviness and distortion, and sometimes with space, reflection and a soft, soft touch.) 25.00

SHALLOW GRAVE - Threshold Between Worlds LP (minor - Shallow Grave have been journeying into the heart of darkness since forming in 2009. And today in 2018, Shallow Grave re-emerge from the Southern Depths channeling distorted transmissions from beyond the transcendent void on their new album, Threshold Between Worlds. Thematically circling around one of the oldest and most potent forms of human servitude – blood sacrifice – Threshold Between Worlds is obscenely dark, inhumanly heavy, and emotionally devastating. Shallow Grave alchemize corrupted doom, impoverished psychedelia and unscripted experimentation on the album, combining monumental heaviness with chiasmic minimalism. Their self-titled debut, released in 2013 by Astral Projection, and was hailed as “massively heavy and musically punishing” (Metal Rules) and “uncompromising, unrelenting... and a masterclass of extreme metal” (The Sludgelord). Threshold Between Worlds ups that ante, seeing Shallow Grave reimagining the sacred and bringing even more unsettling sonic carnage and remorseless intensity to their art. Threshold Between Worlds’ labyrinthine performances summon ancient entropic resonances via ominous audio manipulations, and Shallow Grave’s singular methodology is showcased as crushing and bone-chilling doom fuses with subtle improvisations, musique concrète, mangled tape loops, subliminal samples, and a hauntological ambience. Threshold Between Worlds sees Shallow Grave weaving even thicker layers of dread and atmospheric noise into the fabric of their art. Resulting in a powerful illustration of sacrifice transforming consciousness, through blood-soaked ascendancy. The raw materials of Threshold Between Worlds were recorded live at Auckland’s The Lab studios, and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege.) 14.00

SNOFFELTOFFS - Frohnau LP (Garage Punk duo from Berlin, Germany. One guy on the guitar, the other one playing bass and drums at the same time, occassionally spiced up with 70’s New York Sound, or as they call it: “Shit-Fi Garage”."Fünf Jahre ist es her, dass die jugendlichen Rabaukenschleimer Snøff und Tøff zuletzt zu- sammen in der Öffentlichkeit zu sehen waren. Nach dem Erfolg ihres Debütalbums Hokus Pokus wurde es still um die Gruppe. Aus gutem Grund: angezeckt von Begegnungen während einer langwierigen Tour trieb es Bandmitglied Florian in die ambitionierten Gefilde der Politik. Als selbsternannter Jan Dark Nordberlins setzte er sich im regionalen Wahlkampf für Soziales ein. Nach achtzehn Monaten musste er jedoch einsehen, dass nicht jeder Schlagzeuger auch als Parlamentarier taugt - im Maßanzug kehrte er in den Prenzlauer Berg (die Wahlheimat der Snøffeltøffs) zurück. Doch oh Graus: Sänger und Gitarrist Julian war nirgends aufzufinden.“) 18.00

SUNDAY'S BEST - The Californian LP (col. vinyl) /thirty something - After years of requests, here comes the first ever vinyl pressing of The Californian! Overcoming the departure of a founding member, the loss of two booking agents, rehab, and divorce, the members of Sunday's Best flexed their maturity through variety on a sophomore album that finds the band defining its own unique sound. From the hook-filled "Our Left Coast Ambitions," to the nearly adult contemporary "Don't Let It Fade," to singer-songwriter on "Beethoven St.," The Californian shows a band reinventing itself by slowing things down, stripping away layers and allowing Ed Reyes' vocals to soar above each track's beautiful melodies. Wearing the muse of Sunday's Best's hometown/state on its sleeve, The Californian conjures the pangs of nostalgia filtered through the romanticism of Los Angeles. Members have since gone on to form The Bronx (James Tweedy) and The Little Ones (Reyes and Ian Moreno).) 18.00

YOSHIO OJIMA - Une Collection Des Chaînons I: Music For Spiral DLP (wrwtfw - WRWTFWW Records is insanely happy to announce the first ever vinyl reissue for both volumes of Yoshio Ojima’s superb environmental music project Une Collection des Chaînons I and II: Music For Spiral, originally released in 1988 on CD only. Each volume is sourced from original masters and comes as a double vinyl LP with liner notes in English and Japanese . This marks the inaugural release from the ESPLANADE SERIES by WRWTFWW Records which focuses on the works of Yoshio Ojima and friends. Une Collection des Chaînons I and II gathers selected music pieces conceptualized and produced for sound-designing the Wacoal Art Center in Aoyama (Tokyo) also known as Spiral, a hub for a wide range of sophisticated cultural proposals spanning visual arts, theatre, music, design, fashion, and lifestyle. Named after its superb curled-shaped structures laid in a vast atrium, Spiral is a monumental work of architecture by Fumihiko Maki, designed according to the principles of Metabolism, a movement advocating the fusion of the notions of megastructures and organic biological growth - in essence, evolving designs and constructions, adapting to human needs naturally. Evolving, organic, adapting, these are notions that perfectly describe Yoshio Ojima’s divinely designed brand of environmental music. Based on a meticulous work on timbres and textures, it approaches sound design in relation to various contexts, sizes, and feelings. Vol.I flows from the eerie and levitating "Entrance" to the quirky "Esplanade (LIVE)", the gentle and reassuring "Flius", and the measured and ravishing escalation of "Mensis". On Vol.II, the nanoscopic neoclassical lullaby "Les Trois Grâces" brings attention to the importance of small details, "Pulse at Soothe" starts with the minimalism of a Satoshi Ashikawa piece and slowly drifts into mystical landscapes and cavernous echoes, "Entomology" and its melancholic artificial forest evokes a Twin Peaks mirage, and "Atrium" literally feels like a floating visit of a gigantic open space structure. Sitting alongside Midori Takada’s Through The Looking Glass, Satoshi Ashikawa’s Still Way, Hiroshi Yoshimura’s Green, or Yutaka Hirose’s NOVA, as a pivotal work of Japanese environmental/ambient/minimalist music, Une Collection des Chaînons (which translates as a collection of links) is a delicately laid out sonic landscape connecting space and emotions, architecture and humanity, adjusting and transforming through the ears of the listeners. A note from Yoshio Ojima: "Please listen to this album at around the same volume as daily life sounds such as air conditioners and refrigerators.“) 28.00

TAPES

I HATE SEX / ALGAE BLOOM / BLACK KNIGHT SATELLITE - 3-way split TAPE (3 awesome Emo / Screamo bands on own tape. Killer release.) 6.00

OJNE - Prima Che Tutto Bruci TAPE (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. ) 6.00

RNL - Conquering King Kong TAPE (diy - Conquering Kong Kong is a 45min trail through mental states and thought patterns, an abstract audio film that unspools with the logic of a dream.) 8.00

LP

ANGEL BAT DAVID - The Oracle LP (international anthem - Composer, clarinetist, singer & spiritual jazz soothsayer Angel Bat Dawid descended on Chicago's jazz & improvised music scene just a few years ago. In very short time, the potency, prowess, spirit & charisma of her cosmic musical proselytizing has taken her from relatively unknown improviser to borderline ubiquitous performer in Chicago's avant-garde. On any given night you can find Angel adding aura to ensembles led by Ben LaMar Gay, or Damon Locks, or Jaimie Branch, or Matthew Lux, or even, on a Summer night in 2018, onstage doing a woodwind duo with Roscoe Mitchell. For her recorded debut on International Anthem, The Oracle, we've chosen to release a batch of tracks that Angel created entirely alone – performing, overdubbing & mixing all instruments & voices by her self – recorded using only her cell phone in various locations, from London UK to Cape Town RSA, but primarily from her residency in the attic of the historic Radcliffe Hunter mansion in Bronzeville, Southside, Chicago.) 25.00

THE ART ENSEMBLE OF CHICAGO - We Are On The Edge DLP (erased tapes -

BLACK MARBLE - Bigger Than Life LP (sacred bones - When Chris Stewart set out to write and record his third album as Black Marble, he was newly living in Los Angeles, fresh off a move from New York. The environment brought much excitement and possibility, but the distance had proved too much for the car he brought along. With it out of commission indefinitely, he purchased a bus pass and planned his daily commute from his Echo Park apartment to his downtown studio, where he began to shape Bigger Than Life. The route wound all through the city, from the small local shops of Echo Park to the rising glass of the business district, to the desperation of Skid Row. The hurried energy of the environment provided a backdrop for the daily trip. When Stewart finally arrived at his studio, he’d look through his window at the mountains and the sky, seeing the beauty that makes L.A. unique — the same beauty his fellow commuters, some pushed to the edge of human endurance, had seen. That was the headspace he was in when he began to map out the syncopated drums and staccato arpeggiation of Bigger Than Life, an ode to his new condition and a shimmering synth-pop response to its cacophony.) 21.00

BLIND SEAGULL - Nails LP (detriti - Blind Seagull is a post-punk / new wave band from Kaliningrad, Russia. Who's Ian Curtis again?) 23.00

BODY OF LIGHT - Time To Kill LP (dais - Birthed from Arizona’s regaled Ascetic House collective, Body of Light is a dark synth-pop outfit comprised of young brothers Andrew and Alexander Jarson. What began as a vehicle for their exploration of noise and sound during their early teens has evolved into an established production over the last decade, as Body of Light continues to carve out their own style of complex, structured, and moving dancefloor electronics. ) 25.00

CHELSEA WOLFE - Birth Of Violence LP (sargent house - Chelsea Wolfe has always been a conduit for a powerful energy, and while she has demonstrated a capacity to channel that somber beauty into a variety of forms, her gift as a songwriter is never more apparent than when she strips her songs down to a few key elements. As a result, her solemn majesty and ominous elegance are more potent than ever on Birth of Violence. There is a core element to Chelsea Wolfe’s music—a kind of urgent spin on America’s desolation blues—that’s existed throughout the entirety of her career. It manifested in the lo-fi bedroom recording experiments of her debut album The Grime and the Glow (2010), the electrified dirges of Apokalypsis (2011) and Hiss Spun (2017), the electronic embellishments and distorted growl of albums like Pain is Beauty (2013) and Abyss (2015), and the sparse acoustic arrangements of Unknown Rooms (2012). At the center, there has always been Wolfe’s woeful longing and beguiling gravity, though the framework for compositions has continuously evolved based on whatever resources were available. Her austere beginnings were gradually bolstered by electronics and filled out with full-band arrangements. The music became increasingly dense and more centered around live performances. And while these lush recordings have in many ways magnified her power, the elaborate renditions create a dichotomy given the private and isolated nature of her art. Her latest album, Birth of Violence, is a return to the reclusive nature of her earlier recordings, written and recorded in the solitude of her remote home in Northern California.) 26.00

CHRONOPHAGE - Prolog For Tomorrow LP (cleta part - While Chronophage has cleaned up their sound from those earlier tapes, they still play rough-hewn and loose pop music. Their recordings have a handmade quality that sounds like people playing together in a room, which stands in stark contrast to most punk rock I hear, which takes advantage of recording technology to sound as full and as a tight as possible. While Chronophage don’t sound retro, that quality forces me to go back further for good reference points for their sound, whether it’s to UK groups like Swell Maps, Television Personalities, and O Level, or American stuff like Pavement’s earliest material. While the whole thing is an enjoyable listen, my ears perk up when unexpected sounds crop into the mix, like the gurgles of electronic noise that pepper between-track transitions, the trumpet on “Racing,” or the double-tracked chorus of “Double Suicide.” Recommended if you want to hear smart people making loose, raw, and earnest music.) 16.00

DESERT SESSIONS - Desert Sessions Vol. 11 & 12 DLP (matador - In 1997, Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age) and a handful of friends retreated to the desert of Joshua Tree, CA in order to isolate themselves from the distractions and comforts of their everyday lives. What began as a casual writing and recording session amongst friends has since become a project of legend. Spanning twelve volumes over the course of two decades, Desert Sessions has featured some of music’s most cherished icons stepping out of their comfort zones and collaborating with one another to create some of the most exciting music of their careers. After nearly sixteen years since its last entry, the longest-running mix tape in existence, Desert Sessions will return this October with two stunning new volumes in its already storied catalog, Vols. 11 & 12, featuring collaborations from Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top), Les Claypool (Primus), Stella Mozgawa (Warpaint), Jake Shears (Scissor Sisters), Mike Kerr (Royal Blood), Carla Azar (Autolux, Jack White), Matt Sweeney (Chavez), David Catching (Co-founder of Rancho De La Luna studio), comedian Matt Berry (What We Do in the Shadows), Töôrnst Hülpft and new comer Libby Grace.) 28.00

DIETER ANTHONY GUTZE - s/t LP (swisspunk - Dieter Meyer of Yello. On this record you will find some of the best Swisspunk songs that where ever recorded. The A-Side includes five songs who are today all Swisspunk classics. On the B-Side there are six demo songs, some of them you never did hear before. In particular the Demo Song 1 is an absolute howler. With the record you will get a 28 page booklet with the hall story (german/english) and an interview how DIETER MEIER became a singer in a Punkband in 1978. On top a huge poster with the reproduction of all three single-release-posters and a concert-poster.) 26.00

FLY PAN AM - C'est ça LP (constellation - Fly Pan Am formed in Montreal in 1996 and played their earliest shows with many of the city’s emerging instrumental and experimental rock groups (including Exhaust, Godspeed You! Black Emperor and The Shalabi Effect) in various alternate venues and extra-official warehouses during the late '90s. The band’s four founding members worked through four Constellation release from 1998-2004 and went on hiatus in 2005. They are: Roger Tellier-Craig (guitars, tapes, electronics, vocals); Jonathan Parant (guitars, tapes, electronics, vocals); J.S. Truchy (bass, tapes, electronics, vocals) and Félix Morel (drums, tapes). Eric Gingras (guitars, organs, percussion) joined the group in 2002. The band’s first release was a split 7" with Godspeed, issued by local zine aMAZEzine in 1998. They began recording their first full-length later that year, released as a self-titled CD and 2xLP by Constellation in 1999. As Montreal’s rock instrumentalists began to cross-pollinate and collaborate during this period, Fly Pan Am teamed up with sound artist Alexandre St-Onge; they premiered their first joint piece at Constellation’s Musique Fragile concert series in 1998, and went on to record it for their first album. St-Onge remained a regular guest on their earlier output, appearing on various tracks throughout the band’s recorded work. Fly Pan Am has also collaborated with electronic artists Tim Hecker and Christof Migone, including a number of unreleased recording sessions, some of which can be heard on Constellation’s Song of the Silent Land compilation, as well as on Tim Hecker’s Mirages and on one track from N’écoutez pas. During Fly Pan Am’s extended hiatus, the band members continued to explore various sonic possibilities. Félix toured and released LPs with sci-fi prog punkers Panopticon Eyelids and psychedelic death rockers No Negative, as well as working as a collage artist designing artwork for a number of releases. Jonathan played in the bands Feu Thérèse and K.A.N.T.N.A.G.A.N.O., and he composed the music for a number of theatre and dance companies, touring with them over the last decade. He his currently creating a new sound project named Actors Artificial. Roger started the audiovisual electronic project Le Révélateur with video artist Sabrina Ratté, touring and releasing a number of records on labels like NNA Tapes and Root Strata, and he graduated from the Conservatoire de Musique de Montréal in electroacoustic composition in 2019. JS has toured as a solo artist, releasing records on labels such as Root Strata and Digitalis, and he co-founded Avec le soleil sortant de sa bouche, as well has the now defunct label Los Discos Enfantasmes. Fly Pan Am has toured Europe and North America numerous times, sharing bills with GY!BE, Do Make Say Think, Stereolab and Broadcast, among others. They have performed twice at Fonderie Darling, the Montreal installation art centre run by Quartier Ephemere. They spent a week performing in Portugal in 2002, at the invitation of Visao Periferica, and played the Festival International de Musique Actuelle de Victoriaville in 2004. The group reunited in 2018 for a performance in Montreal, their first live show in 14 years. ) 25.00

FRIENDSHIP - Undercurrent LP (southern lord - Undercurrent showcases FRIENDSHIP’s hybrid of ultra-heavy doom sludge / powerviolence as audible torture. With a more technical and precise attack, and a brighter and sharper tone than the preceding Hatred LP, all tracking, mixing, and mastering duties for Undercurrent were handled in Tokyo throughout 2018. The resulting album strikes hard with ten relentless tracks delivered in just over twenty-two minutes.) 25.00

GRAUZONE - live at gaskessel LP (winterschatten - Live at Gaskessel Amazing early GRAUZONE Live album recorded April 12, 1980 - Live at Gaskessel, Bern, Switzerland. 20-page A5-booklet included. Swiss Neue Deutsche Welle / post punk band founded in 1980 in Bern. They disbanded in 1982.) 23.00

MARK KORVEN - The Lighthouse OST LP (sacred bones -Mark Korven's original soundtrack for The Lighthouse, starring Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe, marks his second collaboration with director Robert Eggers (The Witch). “Robert [Eggers] and I were rather like the two wickies that went insane in The Lighthouse, musically speaking. We travelled to some very dark harmonic and textural places. We both enjoy not just breaking the rules, but blowing them to smithereens. The spirit of experimentation was always present.” - Composer Mark Korven) 26.00

MATANA ROBERTS - Coin Coin Chapter Four: Memphis LP (constellation - Matana Roberts returns with the fourth chapter of her extraordinary Coin Coin series — a project that has deservedly garnered the highest praise and widespread critical acclaim for its fierce aesthetic originality and unflinching narrative power. The first three Coin Coin albums, issued from 2011-2015, charted diverse pathways of modern/avant composition — Roberts calls it “panoramic sound quilting”—and ranged sequentially from large band to sextet to solo, unified by Roberts’ archival and often deeply personal research into legacies of the American slave trade and ancestries of American identity/experience. Roberts also emphasizes non-male subjects and thematizes these other-gendered stories with a range of vocal and verbal techniques: singspeak, submerged glossolalic recitation, guttural cathartic howl, operatic voice, gentle lullaby, group chant, and the recuperation of various American folk traditionals and spirituals, whether surfacing in fragmentary fashion or as unabridged set-pieces. The root of this vocality comes from her dedication to the legacy of her main chosen instrument, the alto saxophone. On Coin Coin Chapter Four: Memphis, Roberts convened a new band, with New Yorkers Hannah Marcus (guitars, fiddle, accordion) and percussionist Ryan Sawyer (Thurston Moore, Nate Wooley, Cass McCombs) joined by Montréal bassist Nicolas Caloia (Ratchet Orchestra) and Montréal-Cairo composer/improviser Sam Shalabi (Land Of Kush, Dwarfs Of East Agouza) on guitar and oud, along with prolific trombonist Steve Swell and vibraphonist Ryan White as special guests. Memphis unspools as a continuous work of 21st century liberation music, oscillating between meditative incantatory explorations, raucous melodic themes, and unbridled free-improv suites, quoting archly and ecstatically from various folk traditions along the way. Led by Roberts’ conduction and unique graphic score practice, her consummate saxophone and clarinet playing, and punctuated by her singing and speaking various texts generated from her own historical research and diaristic writings, Coin Coin Chapter Four is a glorious and spellbinding new instalment in this projected twelve-part Gesamtkunstwerk. Says Roberts: “As an arts adventurer dealing w/ the medium of sound and its many contradictions I am most interested in endurance, perseverance, migration, liberation, libation, improvisation and the many layers of cognitive dissonance therein as it relates to my birth country’s history. I speak memory, I sing an american survival through horn, song, sadness, a sometimes gladness. I stand on the backs of many people, from so many different walks of life and difference, that never had a chance to express themselves as expressively as I have been given the privilege. In these sonic renderings, I celebrate the me, I celebrate the we, in all that it is now, and all that is yet to come or will be... Thanks for listening.” ) 25.00

MOLCHAT DOMA - Etazhi LP (detriti - BACK IN STOCK - Amazing coldwave / synth-pop from Belarus with haunting and emotional hooks to both the leads and vocals.) 25.00

MORT GARSON - Mother Earth's Plantasia LP (sacred bone s- BACK IN STOCK *Comes with fully restored original booklet with new liner notes by Andy Beta (Pitchfork). All vinyl copies come with seed paper download card – plant it and watch it sprout!** If you purchased a snake plant, asparagus fern, peace lily, or what have you from Mother Earth on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles (or bought a Simmons mattress from Sears), you also took home Plantasia, an album recorded especially for plants. Subtitled “warm earth music for plants…and the people that love them,” it was full of bucolic, charming, stoner-friendly, decidedly unscientific tunes enacted on the new-fangled device called the Moog. Plants date back to the dawn of time, but apparently, they loved the Moog, never mind that the synthesizer had been on the market for just a few years. Most of all, the plants loved the ditties made by composer Mort Garson. Few characters in early electronic music can be both fearless pioneers and cheesy trend-chasers, but Garson embraced both extremes, and has been unheralded as a result. When one writer rhetorically asked: “How was Garson’s music so ubiquitous while the man remained so under the radar?” the answer was simple. Well before Brian Eno did it, Garson was making discreet music, both the man and his music as inconspicuous as a Chlorophytum comosum. Julliard-educated and active as a session player in the post-war era, Garson wrote lounge hits, scored plush arrangements for Doris Day, and garlanded weeping countrypolitan strings around Glen Campbell’s “By the Time I Get to Phoenix.” He could render the Beatles and Simon & Garfunkel alike into easy listening and also dreamed up his own ditties. “An idear” as Garson himself would drawl it out. “I live with it, I walk it, I sing it.” But as his daughter Day Darmet recalls: “When my dad found the synthesizer, he realized he didn’t want to do pop music anymore.” Garson encountered Robert Moog and his new device at the Audio Engineering Society’s West Coast convention in 1967 and immediately began tinkering with the device. With the Moog, those idears could be transformed.  “My mom had a lot of plants,” Darmet says. “She didn’t believe in organized religion, she believed the earth was the best thing in the whole world. Whatever created us was incredible.” And she also knew when her husband had a good song, shouting from another room when she heard him humming a good idear. Novel as it might seem, Plantasia is simply full of good tunes. Hearing Plantasia in the 21st century, it seems less an ode to our photosynthesizing friends by Garson and more an homage to his wife, the one with the green thumb that made everything flower around him. “My dad would be totally pleased to know that people are really interested in this music that had no popularity at the time,” Darmet says of Plantasia'snew renaissance. “He would be fascinated by the fact that people are finally understanding and appreciating this part of his musical career that he got no admiration for back then.” Garson seems to be everywhere again, even if he’s not really noticed, just like a houseplant.) 25.00

NESKA LAGUN - Fluchtpunkt LP (Neska Lagun is a post hardcore band from Berlin, Germany and 'fluchtpunkt' is their debut LP. FFO: Fjørt, Viva Belgrado or La Dispute) 13.00

OMNI - Networker LP (sub pop - Enter Networker, the new album by Omni and first with indie giant Sub Pop Records. Their sound is still defined by sparse drums, locked-in bass, blistering guitar, and nonchalant, yet assured vocals, but from the first notes of "Sincerely Yours" you'll immediately notice that Networker sounds much cleaner and more "HI-FI" than their prior two albums, Deluxe (2016) and Multi-task (2017). The departure in fidelity suits the new record and allows the listener to enjoy the nuances of their meticulous arrangements. Don't worry, the riffs of Gang of Four and Wire are still present, but the production is more lush and the harmony is even more expansive. Despite nods to the sounds of the ’70s and ’80s what comes through is a record fully rooted in the here and now. Thematically, this is apparent on the title track "Networker" taking a candid snapshot of the “digital you” aspect of life in the age of the internet. The otherwise fun romp “Skeleton Key” also acknowledges the “direct message and obsessive” side of social media with lines like “if you don't like what you see, the pretty face on the screen, scroll on by...” Networker was written half between tours and half during recording sessions. The band, Philip Frobos on bass/vocals and Frankie Broyles on guitars/drums/keys, returned with longtime collaborator Nathaniel Higgins to the studio in South Georgia where they also recorded Multi-task and most recent single "Delicacy." In this case, the “studio” is a cabin near Vienna, GA (pronounced Vye-anna) that was built by Frankie Broyles’ great-grandparents in the 1940s. The band completed four sessions between November 2018 and April 2019. Omni hit their stride in the cabin with songs such as "Moat,” which cruises along at a nice mid-tempo clip with sounds that are maybe piano or maybe the “behind the bridge” strings of a Jaguar a la Sonic Youth or This Heat. "Blunt Force" provides a nice contrast to some of the more upbeat cuts, getting jazzy with it’s less traditional arrangement and psychedelic outro. On “Courtesy Call," Omni successfully ride the line of being able to pleasantly reference influences without mimicking. They venture into experimental Haruomi Hosono territory while still managing to sound like Thin Lizzy. The same could be applied to “Sincerely Yours” where the fantastic guitar work and a beautiful breakdown in the middle dive into late 70’s jazz production. On standout cut "Present Tense," Yellow Magic Orchestra vibes are present in the fun synthesizer riff while the guitar counterpoint checks this direction pulling the song back into something fresh, sharp, and definitely Omni. Overall, Networker is simultaneously fun, catchy, and contains some truly impressive musicianship. This combo is especially hard to pull off as bands that are great players often don’t have great or memorable songs. Omni and Nathaniel Higgins have done a stellar job of reigning in their diverse influences into a cohesive record by curating their sounds into a tight package that leaves you just on the cusp of understanding where the band is coming from, while still feeling like you’re hearing something totally fresh. While their earlier records had more of a “post-punk” sound, Networker is an amalgamation of the best sounds of the ’70s and ’80s, all arranged with (mostly) guitars, bass, and drums for our contemporary age, and it really works! There are hooks everywhere, vocal and instrumental, that will leave you humming along, even during the first listen. As Philip Frobos says in “Present Tense,” “guess who’s on my mind right now?” Well, Omni’s on mine and will be on yours soon. -Scott Munro, Preoccupations 2019) 22.00

PASSION KILLERS - They Kill Our Passion With Their Hate And Wars LP (demo tapes - Passion Killers were from Barnsley, South Yorkshire and featured Dave Lentil, Daz White and Boffo. All three members were later, heavily involved in Chumbawamba but at the time of this demo Boff was already only on loan from Chumbawamba. This 1983 Demo was recorded in one day at Lion Studios, Leeds and features 11 melodic, simple, anarchist pop songs. The Band had already shared a split tape with Chumbawamba on Sky and Trees but this demo is the jewel in the crown of the Passion Killers recorded work. It features 'Start Again' which was released by Crass on 'Bullshit Detector 2'. The LP comes with a 16 page 11”x11” booklet featuring photos, lyrics, handouts, clippings and other stuff.) 14.00

PHARMAKON - Devour LP (sacred bones - Devour marks the fourth full-length record from Margaret Chardiet’s project Pharmakon and her most intense output to date. Like her previous albums, Devour comes with a strong concept that is exorcised throughout the five demolishing tracks on the album, using imagery and language of self-cannibalism as allegory for the self-destructive nature of humans. Each of the five songs echoes a stage of grief associated with this cyclical chamber of self-destruction and the chaos surrounding us that leads us to devour ourselves in an attempt to balance the agony. The album was recorded by Ben Greenberg (Uniform) and is the first Pharmakon album recorded live in studio. The A and B sides were each recorded as a continuous take with vocals from start to finish, marking a totally new process for the artist that allows the ferocity and immediacy of her live performance to resonate throughout. Devour also explores new sonic territory, with denser electronics, groovier hooks, and moments of her most unhinged vocal deliveries to date. As one of the premiere vanguards of modern industrial and power electronics, Chardiet continuously pushes the genres and everyone involved in them, and with the release of Devour, she has once again changed the game.) 23.00

UNIFORM & THE BODY - Everything That Dies Someday Comes Back LP (sacred bones - On the heels of their monolithic collaborative LP Mental Wounds Not Healing, the collaboration between industrial-noise post-everything bands Uniform & The Body returns with a second entry, Everything That Dies Someday Comes Back. Comprised of an amalgam of abrasive influence that spans Swans-y dirge and purge, Whitehouse’s clenched-jaw noise, middle-period Ministry’s penchant for metallic post-industrial everything, New Order’s nose for melodic emotionality, and Juicy J-inspired beats, Uniform & The Body’s approach delves deeper down the rabbit hole than before, igniting a sonic world of terror and bliss poised to grip the throats of fans yet again. Prepare for a record that the band self-describes as "the middle ground between Robyn and Corrupted, but weirder.”) 21.00
