LP

75 DOLLAR BILL - I Was Real DLP (DLX-US-Press) (back ins tock - 75 DOLLAR BILL is one of the essential groups at the heart of NYC's underground. Driven by the telepathic union of CHE CHEN's microtonal electric guitar and RICK BROWN's odd metered percussion their long-form sound is unmistakable and compelling. On their third album I Was Real, the group expands in bold new directions, embracing brilliant fuller orchestrations, joyous rockers and entrancing new textures. The album is 75 Dollar Bill's third, featuring new directions accompanying the band's previously established interest in sprawling, unusual grooves and microtonal melodies. The record is enhanced by the presence of eight additional players in various combinations over its nine tracks—but also shows off the duo's strength when stripped down to the core. Requiring a variety of approaches, the album was recorded over a four-year period, in four different studios, with the band's closest associates and collaborators in a range of different ensemble configurations. The album also features several "studio as instrument" constructions that harken back to the collage-experiments of the band's early cassette tapes, while at the same time pointing to territories altogether new. Double-LP version presented in a heavy tip-on gatefold jacket with textured clothe wrap and matte foil stamping.) 45.00

ART & TECHNIQUE - Clima X LP (bfe - Reissue of the fantastic debut LP from France's pioneer avant-electronic unit ART & TECHNIQUE. Originally released in 1981 by Hi-Tech records. Haunting obscure minimal electronic sounds, ambient and atmospheric ventures, abstract minimal wave with some ethnic elements. And excellent use of rhythm boxes, sound generators and strange vocals, reminds of 23 Skidoo's “7 songs”, early Muslimgauze, O Yuki Conjugate´s sound and the atmospheres of Jon Gibson or Jon Hasell. Re-mastered by former member Bernard Filipetti. Limited edition of 300 copies.) 20.00

BERNARD FORT - Fractals / Brain Fever LP (edtions mego - Composed at the GMVL from December 1979 to September 1981, this work was commissioned by Fnac. Fractals are mathematical oddities that, when crossing our path, turn the smallest island into an immensity to be explored. FRACTALS is a series of short studies, all based on the same sound source. Seeking in the sound and its very logic a proposal upon which a construction is elaborated, each Fractal remains open and is a mere fragment of itself. FRACTALS, music pieces sculpted in four dimensions, are vast microcosms that can only be inhabited by the mind. Each Fractal can be approached from several angles, far, near, etc. Some can be listened to at different speeds, forwards or backwards. FRACTALS: amorphous and endless music pieces whose centre is everywhere and circumference nowhere.)21.00

BERNARD PARMEGIANI - Violostries LP (editions mego - Embossed cover artwork, incl. printed inner sleeve Violostries (1963/64), 16’39 Premiered and recorded in April 1965 at the Royan Festival - France, by Devy Erlih (violin) & Bernard Parmegiani (sound projection). Violostries represents the intersection of several musical research directions, presented as two simultaneous dialogues - composer/performer and instrument/orchestra.) 21.00

BIG BLOOD - Operate Spaceship Earth Properly LP (feeding tube - 2018 repress, on splatter vinyl. "Our last Big Blood release was the idiosyncratic Ant Farm, Colleen and Caleb's collaboration with the late composer Elliott Schwartz, which presented music designed for a museum installation. With Operate Spaceship Earth Properly, Big Blood return to the vast universe of strangeness they explore inside their own skin. Now fully incorporating the vocals and guitar of their daughter Quinnisa(previously a 'secret weapon' unveiled mostly at live shows, as the Dictators once did with Handsome Dick Manitoba), Big Blood sound nutsier and wilder than ever. Spaceship Earth is a massively psychedelic investigation of science fiction, science fact and the mythic spot where they reconcile. Specifically referring to the work of writers such as Octavia Butler, Ursula K. Le Guin and Buckminster Fuller, the music mixes the thunder of riff-thuggery with vocals beamed in from planet Comus and beat-slaps equally indebted to the Purple Revolutionary and the Neue Deutsche Welle. The combination is head-spinning and gloriously original but will be immediately identifiable as Big Blood by anyone who knows the band's music. I mean, it's so freaking strange and so freaking Maine, who else could it be?" --Byron Coley, 2018) 25.00

CHUCK JOHNSON - Balsams LP (vdsq -Chuck Johnson's pedal steel guitar debut delivers a group of pieces for ambient meditation. Recorded in a single two-week session during late 2015, and subsequently arranged/constructed/treated in the studio in spring of 2016, Balsams is awash in layers of tonal perfection. The album constantly evolves while maintaining a unified approach across both sides. Balsams is a record that lives outside genre and time, one that continues to develop with each successive deep listen. A unique expansion in the VDSQ catalog, Balsams is an album created in the hopes of providing solace and regenerative energies for many years to come.) 25.00

DAME AREA - La Soluzione É Una LP (bfe - 6 new songs by industrial tribalism / minimal wave duo DAME AREA. Inspired by Coil, Suicide, Franco Battiato, Gary Numan and Dino Buzzati. Dame Area surges from Barcelona’s fertile underground scene and revisits the postindustrial aesthetic with a dissident and a free spirit approach through tribal rythms, hypnotic keyboards, oniric sounds and eerie vocals.) 18.00

DOUG HAMMOND - spaces LP (manufactured - "Released in 1982, Spaces features alto saxophonist Steve Coleman and cellist Muneer Abdul Fataah writing with Hammond as the Doug Hammond Trio, with guests Byard Lancaster (Alto Saxophone, Flute) and Kirk Lightsey (piano). It's an album is full of strong, succinct statements that, according to Musician Magazine (Cliff Tinder, 1982), belie an abstract, soulful approach to free jazz. The exhilarating cello and angular horns show each player's experience and artistry while the heady, asymmetrical rhythmic concepts of Hammond and Steve Coleman add a playfulness to the dissonance. Creative, dynamic, modern, Tinder notes that Spaces gives any jazz master a run for their money.“) 26.00

FRANCE GALL - Baby Pop LP (thrid man - France Gall was a prolific French vocalist and performer, remembered as one of the central figures of the 1960s yé-yé pop movement. Aligning catchy, spirited rhythms with lighthearted lyrics and drawing from the beat music a la early Beatles and Hollies, the yé-yé artists promoted a sort of new freedom of expression and breaking down of social barriers in post-WWII France. Third Man Records is beyond honored to bring this music to a larger audience by issuing the first authorized North American vinyl pressings of these titles, some of the most brilliant highlights from Gall's catalog. Baby Pop is not only an important album for France herself, it is also a hugely important record for the entire yé-yé scene. Baby Pop hinted at the musical direction that yé-yé was headed in much the same way Revolver and Pet Sounds did in the UK and USA. Baby Pop is more mature and varied than her earlier more bubblegum releases. You will still find a wonderfully cheesy tracks like 'L'Amerique' here and there but with the impossibly infectious title track and songs like the Gainsbourg penned 'Nous Ne Sommes Va-T'en' and the groovy Farfisa-driven 'Faut-Il que Je T'Aime' we welcome a new France Gall and say hello to some of the fi nest pop music ever released in French or any language.“) 33.00

FRANCE GALL - Poupee De Cire, Poupee De Son LP (thrid man - France Gall was a prolific French vocalist and performer, remembered as one of the central figures of the 1960s yé-yé pop movement. Aligning catchy, spirited rhythms with lighthearted lyrics and drawing from the beat music a la early Beatles and Hollies, the yé-yé artists promoted a sort of new freedom of expression and breaking down of social barriers in post-WWII France. Third Man Records is beyond honored to bring this music to a larger audience by issuing the first authorized North American vinyl pressings of these titles, some of the most brilliant highlights from Gall's catalog. While France Gall had been releasing music since she was 16 it wasn't until she took the Grand Prix at the 1965 Eurovision Song Contest with her rendition of Serge Gainsbourg's 'Poupée de Cire, Poupée de Son' that she would be catapulted to the top of the swinging yé-yé scene alongside the likes of Francoise Hardy, Sylvie Vartan and Bridgette Bardot. This record contains two of France's most loved tracks, 'Poupée de Cire' and 'Laisse Tomber Les Filles' also penned by Gainsbourg. She recorded versions of the title track in French, German, Italian and Japanese and was now an international pop superstar. At the time France was dismissed by many as making fluffy ultra-commercial pop hits but her music stands the test of time far better than most, as not many were making music of this consistent high quality. Highly recommended.“) 33.00

FRANCE GALL - 1968 LP (third man - "France Gall was a prolific French vocalist and performer, remembered as one of the central figures of the 1960s yé-yé pop movement. Aligning catchy, spirited rhythms with lighthearted lyrics and drawing from the beat music a la early Beatles and Hollies, the yé-yé artists promoted a sort of new freedom of expression and breaking down of social barriers in post-WWII France. Third Man Records is beyond honored to bring this music to a larger audience by issuing the first authorized North American vinyl pressings of these titles, some of the most brilliant highlights from Gall's catalog. Without a doubt this is the weirdest France Gall record. 1968 dives further into the psychedelia that she was hinting at on Baby Pop. Even with addition of sitars and echoes of The Beatles, The Stones, The Kinks and Pet Sounds era Beach Boys all over this record it is still 100% French and could only have been made by France Gall. The addition of English expat producer/arranger, David Whitaker, brought a new and welcome airiness to the mix that was lacking on Gall's earlier recordings. The album contains 2 of Serge Gainsbourg's strangest and most out-there arrangements, 'Nefertiti' and 'Teenie Weenie Boppie' about an LSD trip gone horribly wrong. 1968 is an absolutely essential addition to any record collection.“) 33.00

HORACE TAPSCOTT CONDUCTING THE PAN-AFRIKAN PEOPLES ARKESTRA - the call LP (outernational - Available on vinyl for the first time in 40 years, Outernational Sounds presents Horace Tapscott's burning, spiritualized 1978 set, The Call. One of the unsung giants of jazz music, the composer, bandleader, arranger, pianist and community activist Tapscott was the undisputed keystone of the grassroots Los Angeles jazz scene. Throughout the 1960s and 1970s, his radical community arts and music formations the UGMA(Underground Musicians Association) and his protean big band, the Pan Afrikan Peoples Arkestra, were at the epicenter of music, culture, and politics in the Los Angeles area. Hundreds of musicians passed through these groups and played their part. Major figures such as Arthur Blythe, Azar Lawrence, Jimmy Woods, John Carter, Bobby Bradford, Sonny Criss, Ndugu Chancler, and dozens of others all paid dues or just got down with Tapscott, not to mention the core Arkestra regulars who have since become celebrated names; Nate Morgan, Jesse Sharps, Adele Sebastian, Dadisi Komolafe, and Gary Bias, to mention only a few. Tapscott and the Arkestra were down on the ground -- playing fundraisers in parks and streets, organizing teach-ins and workshops for young and old, mixing it with radical theater groups, firebrand poets, political radicals, Black separatists, community groups, and churches. As a result of this grassroots community focus and Tapscott's antipathy to the music industry, the Arkestra didn't record for nearly two decades. That only changed when long-time jazz fan Tom Albach started Nimbus Records. The label was initiated specifically in order to document Tapscott and his circle, and the first three records showcased Horace and the Arkestra. The Call was put together from two studio sessions in April 1978, one at Hollywood Sage and Sound, and one at United Western -- the latter session had the addition of a string section, who can be heard on the moody Cal Masseycomposition "Nakatini Suite" and Jesse Sharp's swinging modal trip, "Peyote Song No. III," with its swirling soprano solo. In keeping with the communal nature of the Arkestra, the other two compositions, "The Call" and "Quagmire Manor at Five A.M." are also by Arkestra members. But at the center of the music is the builder of the Ark, the visionary whose original call to action started a movement whose legacy continues to this day -- Horace Tapscott. Vinyl-only release, 180 gram pressing by Pallas, fully licensed from Nimbus West founder Tom Albach.) 25.00

INOYAMALAND - Danzindan​ Pojidon LP (wrwtfw - Originally released on Yen Records in 1983 and produced by Haruomi Hosono. Official reissue of Yasushi Yamashita and Makoto Inoue’s quintessential ambient/minimal/electronic/environmental album) 24.00

JOSEPH ALLRED - Traveler LP (feeding tube - "Welcome to the second album we've done with string maestro, Joseph Allred. Unlike O Meadowlark (FTR 451LP), this one features a smattering of Joseph's vocals, although his main thrust is still glistening instrumentals. The title song is a goddamn sad one, sung with reedy elegance, dealing with a kidnapped dog that serves as a stand-in for all earthly beings, full of both frailty and resilience. Another vocal track, 'The Crown' (which inspired the cover art), stems from a long conversation Joseph had with Max Ochs. It squeezes the inherently surreal aspects of dream-walking into semi-conventional blues tautology, and the fit is just right. The third and last vocal, 'O Columbia,' is a particular favorite, based as it is upon the some of the same melodies Fahey swiped for 'In Christ There Is No East or West,' although Allred takes things in all new directions. I had been a tad leery when I heard Joseph would be singing on this new session -- being so enamored of his unadorned instrumental technique -- but these tunes won me over in the course of a few plays. Maybe there'll be more verbal-content in his future? We would not say, 'no.' But the meat of this album remains Joseph's splendid inventions for guitar and banjo. His piece for Glenn Jones, 'The Giant Who Shrank Himself,' is a beautiful suite, worthy of its concept (that Jones is a behemoth who has to shrink himself in order to deal with us normals). It flows like the sweetest stream of wine you, I or anyone might imagine. 'Single Me a Stranger' is another literal killer, with sliding chords evoking the 1872 lynching and curse-fulfillment of an unlucky newcomer in the small Tennessee town where Allred grew up. It's spell-binding. As is 'Mark's Overture,' a banjo piece inspired by a homeless music critic in Cambridge, Mass. Another top-notch album by this great player. If you don't know Allred already, you will soon." --Byron Coley, 2019) 25.00

K. LEIMER / MARC BARRECA - chain of being LP (Ltd. to 300 copies, letterpress sleeve, incl. 6 letterpress cards Avantgarde electronic ambient walking through the paths of Brian Eno, Harold Budd or Roedelius. A conceptual and contemporary approach to Early music, exploring its ambiences, timbres and feelings. Delicate experimentation with sound textures where different tones of white noise can meet the strings from a viola da gamba. A cinematic work, very touching and emotional. Almost mystic, spiritual ambient.) 24.00

LIIEK - s/t LP (adagio830 - Liiek is a new Postpunk band from Berlin feat. peeps of Pigeon, Benzin, Aus etc Think of Gang Of Four meets Q And Not U. ltd to 300 copies plus 50 Testpress versions) 13.00

MAGGI PAYNE - Arctic Winds DLP (aguirre - Fully immersive electronic music by US composer Maggi Payne, inspired by the arctic winds. Maggi Payne's sound worlds invite the listeners to enter the sound and be carried with it, experiencing it from the inside out in intimate detail. The sounds are almost tactile and visible. The music is based on location recordings, with each sound carefully selected for its potential—its slow unfolding revealing delicate intricacies—and its inherent spatialization architecting and sculpting the aural space where multiple perspectives and trajectories coexist. With good speakers, some space in your schedule, and a mind-body continuum willing to resonate with Payne’s electroacoustic journey, but then it will take you to places that other music can’t reach. From the sounds of dry ice, space transmissions, BART trains, and poor plumbing she immerses the listener in a world strangely unfamiliar. Maggi Payne is a composer, video artist, recording engineer, photographer, and flutist and is Co-Director of the Center for Contemporary Music and a faculty member at Mills College, in the San Francisco Bay Area.) 25.00

MAGGI PAYNE - Ahh-A LP (aguirre - Gatefold sleeve, ltd. to 500 copies Originally composed by Maggi Payne between 1984-1987 for the performance group Technological Feets. Formed by video artist Ed Tennenbaum in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1981, the group combines dance, live video processing and music. Ahh-Ahh was first released in 2012 on Root Strata. Composed on an Apple II computer & various early sampling devices, Payne's compositions are a vibrant response to the call from the moving body. Populated with buoyant pulses, graceful analogue swells, dense fog-like drones and cascading rhythms that shift in space, AHH-AHH is a vital document of not only these early collaborations, but of computer based music as well. She studied with many greats in the field, including Gordon Mumma, Robert Ashley & David Berhman. ) 21.00

MILLION BRAZILIANS - Urban Fossickated Octave LP (feeding tube - Beautiful new LP (the seventh, I believe), from this wonderfully abstract outfit, who were birthed in the shadow of Smegma (Portland, OR), but have since relocated to Maine. The foundational members of the band are Grant Corum (keyboards, vocals, tin whistle, vocals) and Suzanne Stone (alto sax, khene, vocals). For this album, recorded by Big Blood's Caleb Mulkerin, they are joined by Caleb himself (tape loops and treatments) and Tom Kovacevic (piano and synth), both of whom played together back in Cerberus Shoals. The quartet is hot. Even when it's a trio. The music has a blocked-out and dreamy quality, with jazzoid touches and perhaps less of an ethnographic quality than some of the band's work. But the music also exists in large chunks, which are moved around in a way that almost recalls (strategically, if not sonically) groups like Colorado's Mnemonists/Biota collective. There's a heavy and reflective quality to all the sounds generated and how they are shaped. The album takes its title from the work of the late visionary artist, Paul Laffoley, from whom the band learned many lessons, and for whom the music stands as a sort of threnody. And the sounds here seem to inhabit some of the same psychic space as Laffoley's work -- creating panels of aural architecture with Mandalic balance and flow. Million Brazilians' music has lots of depth and a shifting focus that makes it hard to identify as any particular brand of music. But as Duke Ellington so elegantly put it, 'If it sounds good, it is good.' And Urban Fossickated Octave sounds more than good. Take it from the Duke. And then some." --Byron Coley, 2019 Edition of 250.= 25.0

NAP EYES - Snapshot of a Beginner LP (jajagurwar - This one’s for the procrastinators and the slow learners. This one’s for the bungled and the botched, for the fumbled and humbled. This one’s for the late bloomers, and ultimately, Nap Eyes latest full length 'Snapshot of a Beginner' is proof that sometimes, the late bloomers bloom brightest.) 21.00

NURSE WITH WOUND - Rock 'n Roll Station DLP (Reissue of this mesmerizing record including an unreleased alternate mix of "Subterranean Zappa Blues". Hypnotic rhythms made of slow minimal beats, industrial textures, intoxicating drones and repetitive voices that seem to merge from dreams. Everything built by two of the most brilliant industrial music minds: Steven Stapleton and Colin Potter.) 28.00

O YUKI CONJUGATE - Peyote LP (bfe - One standout record of of tribal ambient, Peyote is a musical trip well worth taking. Originally released in 1991 on cd and now released on vinyl for the first time. O Yuki Conjugate (OYC) are an English post-industrial/ambient musical group founded in 1982 in Nottingham by Roger Horberry and Andrew Hulme and still - intermittently - active today. Originally inspired by the spirit and sound of post-punk, they soon started pioneering their own brand of ambient at a time (early 80s) when few people were interested in such a low-key approach. Their music has been variously described as 'ambient', 'fourth world', 'ethnic', 'tribal' and 'dark wave'; the band prefer to call it 'dirty ambient’. OYC on this occasion were: C.Elliott / R.Horberry / T.Horberry / A.Hulme with Maneesh Chandra; tablas 1, 8 Dave Collins; percussion 1, 2, 3, 4; berimbau 2; nose singing & chant 4 John Kaukis: keyboards 1, 3, 5 Chris Lucas: vocals 1, 7 Kenneth F Yates: percussion & chant 4; keyboards 7 Instrumentation: tongue drums, roto toms, bongos, congas, big bean, found percussion, drum machine, wind chimes, loops, frying pan, bass, samples, keyboards, fractal guitar, e-bow, flutes, chants, wildlife Engineered by Joe King. Recorded and digitally mastered at Frontier, Nottingham Aug 1988 - Feb 1990.) 25.00

PIGS PIGS PIGS PIGS PIGS PIGS PIGS - Viscerals LP (rocket - I learned long ago, never to wrestle with a pig” reasoned George Bernard Shaw. “You get dirty, and besides, the pig likes it.” True to form, Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs have left the wiser of us aware that they are no band to be messed with. In the seven years since this band’s inception, the powerful primal charge at their heart has been amplified far beyond the realms of their original imagination. What’s more, no one has been more taken aback by this transformation than the band themselves. This upward trajectory has done nothing to make the Newcastle-based quintet complacent however, as they’ve used the cumulative force behind them as fuel for their most ambitious and hard-hitting record yet. Viscerals, their third proper, is an enormous leap forward in confidence, adventure and sheer intensity even from their 2018 breakthrough King Of Cowards.) 26.00

RASHIED ALI / FRANK LOWE - Duo Exchange DLP (survival - The digital version of this release contains only a portion of the material on the 2xLP, and none of the previously unissued recordings. A Free Jazz masterpiece is again on the block—bigger and better than ever. Rashied Ali / Frank Lowe Duo Exchange is legitimately re-released on LP for the first time, mastered from original tapes for the first time, and expanded with nearly an hour’s music from the session never before heard. You know Duo Exchange as the flagship release of Rashied Ali’s Survival Records. When the record was made, Survival still belonged jointly to Ali and Frank Lowe, and the recording sessions done at Marzette Watts’s studio were the maiden voyage for their partnership. With the release of the record in 1973, Ali and his family and Frank Lowe and his family all became executives and clerks helping to get the word out. And getting the records out—at loft shows and Village record haunts. Survival was on its way. The message of untamed tenor saxophone and Ali’s drums should sound familiar: That’s the combination that made Jazz history in Ali’s 1967 duets with his then-employer, John Coltrane. What eventually came out as Interstellar Space is its own pinnacle of the genre, but its release was still in the future when Duo Exchange was waxed. Frank Lowe and Rashied Ali went into studio to capture the vehemence bursting forth nightly in the lofts. And, as recently celebrated by Soul Jazz Records, they, also capitalized in two further tracks on the delicacy of low-amplitude Free Jazz. (Trane in his Kulu Se Mama era pioneered this as well, and would develop it further with Alice Coltrane on board in his last two years) This release not only restores those sections of the original record (inexplicably excised from early CD releases) but expands it with fascinating outtake versions that rephrase the familiar tracks. The entire project benefits from a new mix of the original 4-channel tapes: You hear the pristine bite of that raw energy for the classic master takes, the sections that didn’t fit on the record, and multiple unissued alternative versions of both. ) 50.00

RUPA - disco jazz LP (numero - Back in Stock - Barely disco and hardly jazz, Rupa Biswas’ 1982 LP is the halfway point between Bollywood and Balearic. Tracked in Calgary’s Living Room Studios with a crack team of Indian and Canadian studio rats alike, Disco Jazz is a perfect fusion of East and West. Sarod and synthesizer intricately weaving around one another for 37 transcendent minutes, culminating in the viral hit “Aaj Shanibar.” Remastered from original analogue source material and with he permission and blessing of the producers and performers.) 26.00

STEVE REICH - Berkeley November 7, 1970 LP (alternatuve fox - Alternative Fox delivers a landmark release in the history of minimalism with a live performance documented from one of the genre's key figures: Steve Reich. Recorded live at Berkeley University in the 1970s (home also to key minimalism figures Terry Riley and La Monte Young), this performance sees Reich deliver some of his now legendary compositions, such as the shifting tape-loop experimentation of "My Name Is", whereby vocals are cut-up, looped, and played at different speeds to create constantly shifting combinations. Similar to his "It's Gonna Rain", it's utterly disorientating and makes for an absorbing listening whilst doffing a cap to cut-up techniques championed by early Dadaists and later Brion Gyson and Burroughs. The two-part "Piano Phase" demonstrates the effects of playing minimalistic notes on two separate pianos at slightly different speeds, so the two drifting an out of phase with each other. The effects are highly meditative, causing subtle rhythmic mutations throughout the piece, whilst "Phase Patterns" explores a similar technique albeit with a grainer electric organ. Last but not least, "Four Organs" explores the effects of sustained chords on multiple organs, set amongst a perpetual maraca, whereby the combination of interlocking chords on the separate instruments amalgamate to form a dense, textured tonal tapestry. 180 gram vinyl.) 21.00

STEVE ROACH - Quiet Music 2 LP (telephone explosion - Quiet Music is a collection of pieces created by Steve Roach between 1983 and 1986 in respect for silence. The gentle electronics of Roach's synthesizers mix with flute, electric piano and nature sounds flow like breath, enveloping the listener in a sustained, delicate and translucent atmosphere. Quiet Music was originally released as a three tape cassette series in 1986 on Fortuna Records and is now being issued as a complete series on vinyl for the first time ever. After Structures From Silence was released, Steve was receiving invitations to create music for the emerging meditation yoga and healing arts community in Los Angeles. Quiet Music 2 was inspired by Steve spending a lot of time in deserts and was created as a natural progression from Structures From Silence, and the more nocturnal feeling of Quiet Music 3 were pieces designed for Steve's personal healing practices. The Quiet Music series was released in a timeline that is often seen as linear but this music was created directly alongside the dynamic fully electronic albums like Now, Traveler, and Empetus. In the early '80s Steve would be shifting between the invigorating sequencer-percussive driven music and then move directly into weightless drifts and contemplative spaces. This way of creating grew naturally out of a desire to not settle into one place sonically and to nourish himself with a space that could be creative and fine-tuned, creating a calm and renewing zone while living within the hectic pace of urban life in Los Angeles.“) 25.00

YUSUF LATEEF - Hikima: Creativity LP (key system - Key System Recordings present a reissue of Yusef Lateef's Hikima: Creativity, originally released in 1983. In the early 1980s, famed jazz saxophonist and musical luminary Yusef Lateef traveled to Nigeria as a Senior Research Fellow to study, write, and teach at Ahmadu Bello University. He cut this record while there; pressed locally in Nigeria, it remained virtually unknown by jazz fans and collectors for over 30 years. On Hikima, Lateef leads a nonet of African musicians in seven compositions that fuse his deep blues and jazz roots with native Nigerian instruments, drums and chants. The sounds stretch from meditative and melancholic to urgent and unrelenting. A singular recording impossible to classify or box in. Lovingly pressed to vinyl by Key System Recordings, a new imprint dedicated to progressive and underground music of all types helmed by Jonathan Sklute, founder of NYC vinyl boutique Good Records. Officially licensed through the Lateef estate. Restored and remastered by Jessica Thompson. Pressed at RTI; sleeve done at Dorado; initial edition of 800.) 28.00

V/A - Guasa, Cununo Y Marimba - Afro-Colombian Music From The Pacific Coast DLP (vampisold - The music of the Colombian Pacific is one of the greatest treasures of Colombia and its African past, but not many people remember the songs recorded on anthologies, which are largely a forgotten chapter of Colombia's musical history.

CD

FRANK LOWE - The Loweski CD (esp - This track is the unreleased beginning portion of this 1973 Frank Lowe concert that was released as Black Beings. This incredible performance is filled with the fire and drive Frank Lowe was projecting on his tenor sax in 1973. This extended track titled "The Lowesky" is set in a five part suite form. Each performer is allowed ample time to express his individual contributions to this phenomenal group. The Band: Frank Lowe-tenor sax, Joseph Jarman-soprano, Raymond Lee Cheng (The Wizard)-violin, William Parker-bass and drummer Rashid Sinan perform admirably on this 38 minute performance, which contains minor feedback on the original recording.) 15.00

FRANK LOWE QUINTET - Soul Folks CD (no more records -Warehouse find of the last copies of this long unavailable 2001 release Soul Folks is a live date from 1998, a celebration of Frank Lowe's lyrical side. The group explodes with raw beauty and emotion. There is a sweet soul that enraptures you upon listening as the music swings -- hard. Featuring Bertha Hope(piano), Jack Walrath (trumpet), Steve Neil (bass) and Ralph Peterson (drums).) 16.00

FRANK LOWE / BILLY BANG QUARTET - One For Jazz CD (no more - Warehouse find of the last copies of this long unavailable 2001 release. Frank Lowe and Billy Bang pay tribute to the late Denis "Jazz" Charles with studio date One For Jazz. The three musicians worked together extensively in their '70s group The Jazz Doctors. Bang and Lowe pay tribute to their old friend by playing some serious music. Nobody plays like Bang or Lowe; they need the heavy rhythm section of Ed Schuller on bass and Abby Rader on drums to balance them out. People are still talking about their debut at the Vision Festival in NY.) 16.00

FRANK LOWE - Black Beings CD (ESP - This version of Black Beings contains of 15 minutes of additional material thought to have been lost. When he started out on ESP-Disk', Frank Lowe was one of those hard-blowing tenor saxophonists we think of when we heard the phrase "free jazz." Born in Memphis, he moved to San Francisco and, while visiting New York, began playing with Alice Coltrane (on whose album World Galaxy he made his recording debut in 1971), Sun Ra, Rashied Ali, and Noah Howard, and eventually moved to the Big Apple. On his debut as a leader, Lowe was confident enough to share the frontline with the Art Ensemble of Chicago's Joseph Jarman, who sticks to soprano and alto saxes here. This album is also notable as the recording debut of bassist William Parker, who has gone on to become an elder statesman of the genre and a ubiquitous presence on the New York scene. And then there is the mystery of the violinist originally credited only as The Wizard. Speculation long ran rampant, with one eminent jazz critic declaring not only that it was Leroy Jenkins under a pseudonym, but "quite recognizable" as such. Consider that a compliment to Raymond Lee Cheng, whom we now know it to have been; he recorded with Lester Bowie two years later as Raymund Cheng. That is not the only discovery unveiled on ESP's 2008 reissue of this classic. ESP's Michael Anderson went into the vaults and discovered unreleased music that was edited out to fit the time confines of the LP. "In Trane's Name" is now 33:29 rather than 25:00; the Jarman-penned "Thulani" is 22:09 compared to 15:55. One listen quickly reveals that the glory of this album is thoroughly enhanced by the additional music) 15.00

NEW YORK ART QUARTET - New York Art Quartet CD (esp - Roswell Rudd assembled the newly formed New York Quartet for an afternoon recording session at Bell Sound Studios in midtown Manhattan. They were joined by a small, youthful appearing individual, the poet Amiri Baraka. Their engineer was the late Art Crist, an accomplished pianist. I was introduced to Lewis Worrell, Amiri Baraka and John Tchicai. The group was short lived. I heard them again 40 years later, when they reassembled for a concert at the South Street Seaport in New York City, opening for Sonic Youth at the invitation of Thurston Moore. Lewis Worrell, who had vanished from the scene, was replaced on bass by Reggie Workman.?-- Bernard Stollman) 15.00

7“

FUTURE ISLANDS - Tomorrow / The Fountain 7“ (upset the - 'TOMORROW / THE FOUNTAIN’ (Limited repress on transparent vinyl, 300 copies only) 'Tomorrow' / 'The Fountain' sees the band at the top of their game, releasing some of their most compelling and sophisticated songs yet, building on the aching themes and poignant focus of their last album 'On The Water’. 'Tomorrow' is a soulful swoon, its light tread is mesmerising amongst the slow burning synth cycles and relaxed bass progress. Samuel T. Herring's ever-impressive vocal has never sounded more akin to Sam Cooke as he smoothly laments "I'm saying sorry every time we talk" before careening into a flight of sustained, arguably uncontrollable emotion. Some choice, additional vocals from Jenn Wasner (of Wye Oak), Lexie Mountain and Elena Johnston only make the song seem more impassioned; its ardent nature perfectly rendered into melody.) 8.00

RULES - .​​.​​​.​​was it six or five shots? 7“ (no spirit - RULES first 7″ EP called: “…was it six or five shots?” is out. Six rocking HC/Punk slashers with personal lyrics focusing on the darker side of the mind from this four piece HC/Punk unit resident in Zagreb, Croatia.) 6.00

SPECTRES - provincial Wake 7“ (sabotage - The “Provincial Wake” 7″ was recorded in 2017 by Felix Fung at Little Red Sounds Studios in Vancouver BC. The single is the first to feature Spectres’ new member Adam Mitchell on guitar and marks a further exploration of the melancholy pop dichotomy that Spectres have come to signify. “Provincial wake is available for Purchase and Download October 18th from Sabotage Records and SPECTRES) 7.00


LP

BARNABUS - beginning to unwind DLP (rise above - Barnabus were a band from the West Midlands/Warwickshire region of the UK, who were active between the years 1970-1973. During that they built up a local reputation and recorded an album of heavy-duty material in late 1971, which has never seen the light of day until now! Apart from a handful of acetates being made up and distributed to family & friends, Beginning to Unwind has remained an unreleased album for all this. After several years of extensive research, Rise Above Relics is delighted to bring you this underground heavy 70s monster, painstakingly remastered from the original analogue tapes, which have been carefully baked for optimal reproduction. In their day, Barnabus were actually given the seal of approval by none other than the dark princes of Doom themselves: Ozzy Osbourne and Tony Iommi, when they judged them winners in the regional heat of a national competition for legendary British Music paper, Melody Maker, in 1972!) 25.00

BIG CHEESE - Punishment Park LP (qchc - Big Cheese have established themselves firmly in the UK hardcore scene, after releasing the Sports Day Demo in 2016, followed by the phenomenally received ‘Aggravated Mopery’ 7”, as well as a New Wave of British Hardcore FM live tape and Discography 12”. They have developed a signature approach to hardcore that skilfully ties together complex rhythms and melodies into catchy and memorable songs with a powerful intensity, inspired by late 80s inspired NYHC ala Rest in Pieces and NWOBHM. Not only that, but after touring Europe twice, and the USA, as well as doing a UK stint with Turnstile, Big Cheese have shown themselves to be one of the most devastating hardcore live bands on the planet right now. A well-oiled machine, Big Cheese present to you their trailblazing debut full-length, ‘Punishment Park’, which nods to sounds from the Demo and 7” but pushes the boat out even further, incorporating thrashier riffs and hard rock licks akin to Motörhead. You can feel the power as soon as opener Pennine Scrubs hits, taking you on a journey through unpredictable riff after atomic bomb inducing breakdown. There is no room to breathe here. ‘Punishment Park’ is a homage to the 1971 film of the same name, which is referenced in the title track and ‘Tired Children in D Minor’, a haunting piano piece. The LP also touches on sociopolitical themes and a gallery of characters conjured up from the depths of vocalist Razor’s nightmares. Nicky Rat brings these thoughts to visual life in the painted front cover, an almost Chapman Brothers-esque dystopia of greed and consumption in a digital world.) 14.00

BLEAKNESS - functionally extinct LP (Bleakness formed out of a need to express feelings of unease that resulted from witnessing the frustration and desesperation spawned out of an oppresive system. In the beggining that created fast and tensed hardcore punk songs infused with melancolic melodies. After a handfull of local shows Bleakness quickly embarqued for their first european tour. During the two following years, between releasing EPs and constantly playing shows and tours in France and abroad, the trio kept busy working on new songs, each new song giving more space for post punk influenced melodies to evolve. Late 2018, relocating in Lyon, Bleakness solidified its line up with the arrival of a new drummer, and finalized the writing of their first full lenght. FUNCTIONNALY EXTINCT is set to be released late 2019 on Sabotage records in Germany and Destructure records in France. The sound is a perfect combination of the sadness of early 80’s post-punk and the anger of nowadays french hardcore punk.) 13.00

BLUT AUS NORD - Hallucinogen DLP (Hallucinogen begins a new era for BLUT AUS NORD, ending the cycle of clandestine industrialised dissonance that culminated with previous transmission Deus Salutis Meae and moving skyward into freshly melodic territories of progressive clarity. Interweaving dreamlike choirs, inimitable harmonic developments, reflective clean guitars, palpable organic drumming and a welcome rock and roll swagger, Hallucinogen is a spacious, emotionally wide-ranging record that finds BLUT AUS NORD more open than ever, full of life and revelling in the element of surprise. Hallucinogen is yet another coherent universe from a band who have moved away from familiar tropes, aesthetics and comfort zones to unite - with Dionysian spirit - under/overland, surface/void, metropolis/mountain and the vastness of the mind’s eye into an indispensable addition to their unparalleled body of work.) 42.00

CASPAR BRÖTZMANN MASSAKER - Der Abend der Schwarzen Folklore LP (southern lord - Southern Lord announce the next Caspar Brötzmann Massaker reissues in the ongoing series, continuing with Der Abend Der Schwarzen Folklore and Koksofen this July. Read on for more insight into these albums, and for information about incoming live dates supporting Sunn O))). Caspar Brötzmann is one of the most unique and innovative guitarists of the last 40 years. With his Berlin-based trio Massaker, he evolved a whole new autonomous approach to writing rock songs, starting from sounds that were widely considered ornamental if not detrimental ‘sonic waste’, such as shrieking feedback and droning overtones. This plethora of sounds were arranged into tracks to sound like breaking concrete, grinding metal, or bursting glass, at once monumental and threatening, impenetrable and hermetic, yet also archaically tender and loving.  Originally released in 1992, Der Abend der schwarzen Folklore is the third Massaker album, released by Rough Trade Germany. According to Caspar Brötzmann, the title track and “Bass Totem“ are the band’s most accomplished songs. It’s certainly the most sonicly refined of their albums, recorded during a residency over several weeks at the pastoral site of Conny Plank’s studio near Cologne, and produced by Ingo Krauss and Bruno Gebhard, who had worked with the famed Krautrock producer until his death in 1987. Not least, ...Schwarzen Folklore also features their new drummer Danny Lommen, whom Caspar and bassist Eduardo Delgado had headhunted at a concert with Lommen’s Dutch prog-core band Gore. Lommen shared their tastes in sheer volume and presence, and “has a completely unique sound to his drumming“, as Caspar marvels, “he plays ultrahard and clear, with authority and no compromise, nothing, not even the most turbulent and speedy beats, sound fuzzy - a statement.“ This, he adds with a smile, would sometimes lead to intense moods during rehearsals, when he overpowered - no small feat - competing with the sounds of Caspar’s guitar. The Tribe and Black Axis were still if very loosely rooted in some kind of heavy rock. Der Abend der Schwarzen Folklore erases these residues from their genetic make-up - evolving into a free-form noise, strangely motionless like an earthquake rumble, that sounded like nothing else at the time. The opening title song gives the best example with its densely shifting chunk of howling and screaming guitar shreds and grimly determined rumbles from the bass, accented by heavy single beats or massively rattling, yet transparent outbursts from the drums. An impenetrable sense of threat fills the sound, interrupted only by breaks of skinny brooding, giving way to Caspar’s throaty growl evoking a lonely march through hostile wastelands under flaming sunsets. Culminating in an archaic choir chanting about black walls rising - a monstrous cloud of thick high-voltage tension.) 22.00

CASPAR BRÖTZMANN MASSAKER - Koksofen DLP (southern lord - Southern Lord announce the next Caspar Brötzmann Massaker reissues in the ongoing series, continuing with Der Abend Der Schwarzen Folklore and Koksofen this July. Read on for more insight into these albums, and for information about incoming live dates supporting Sunn O))). Caspar Brötzmann is one of the most unique and innovative guitarists of the last 40 years. With his Berlin-based trio Massaker, he evolved a whole new autonomous approach to writing rock songs, starting from sounds that were widely considered ornamental if not detrimental ‘sonic waste’, such as shrieking feedback and droning overtones. This plethora of sounds were arranged into tracks to sound like breaking concrete, grinding metal, or bursting glass, at once monumental and threatening, impenetrable and hermetic, yet also archaically tender and loving) 27.00

CASPAR BRÖTZMANN MASSAKER - Home LP (sputhern lord - Originally recorded in 1994 and released in 1995, Home is characterized by MASSAKER's ultra-refined riffs of shrieking, screeching feedback, and rattling machine gun staccatos. Exuding confidence, authority and a natural rapport that the musicians clearly had with one another. Certain songs from earlier records were revisited on Home including "The Tribe" and "Massaker" from The Tribe, and "Templehof," "Hunter Song," and "Böhmen" from Black Axis. These pieces had evolved following years of rethinking, rehearsing and reshaping them on stage, as well as playing with Danny Lommen, who had replaced Frank Neumeier on drums after Black Axis. These refined versions on Home raise the level of density and tension, the ominous evocations of impending doom, booming threat, and the grim determination that's always driven MASSAKER.) 27.00

COLD MEAT - Hot and Flustered LP (static shock - “Agh! A fresh chop from the large dusty burning murder island: Cold is the Meat to beat. Perth’s finest flesh purveyors have upped their naughty game here across ten tracks of gleefully haughty punk. Hot and Flustered is somehow at once extremely camp and deadly serious. Ashley’s vengeful, elastic rasp smears menses down the screwfaces of vacuous tastemakers, climate change deniers, perennial street perverts, and of course, ZZ top fans. There’s some surprisingly poignant forays into melody (Beach Photography) and a good grip of sudden tempo fuckery to keep us well and truly hooked. Their signature chubby and defiant riffs under snarky bouncing toms formula extends well to the album form, creating a timely reminder that hate and fear are more than reasonable responses to our hell predicament. Let’s take comfort in collective ridicule. When it’s too hot to pogo because the sky is on fire, Cold Meat will let us writhe around in the dirt like the little piggies we are.” (Bryony Beynon) Well, after a slew of 7” offerings, Perth’s Cold Meat have finally hit us with a full length record. Much like their last few releases they’ve taken an amped up approach to 70s PUNK but this time round they offer ever so slightly more diversity. Ten tracks clocking in at just over 23 minutes and cut at 45rpm for maximum volume. Get hot and flustered) 15.00

EROBIQUE & JACQUES PALMINGER - Songs For Joy LP (hanse - Vinyl-Repress! Wow, was für ein Projekt. In einem kleinen Saal im Maxim Gorki Theater wird ein schickes bohemistisches Studio aufgebaut und die im Vorfeld via Anzeige gesuchten Texte und Gedichte werden von Erobique interpretiert. Eingesungen von den Verfasser(innen) oder befreundeten Schauspieler(innen). Nach 2 Wochen Session noch eine hysterischen Revue mit allen Beteiligten. Diese wundervolle Platte hier enthält Lieder der ersten 3 "Song For Joy" Sessions. Für viele klingt sie wie der lang verschollene und endlich wieder gefundene Amiga Sampler "Kinder zur Sonne", für andere wie der Soundtrack "La Boum 7– Die Fete hört niemals auf." Oder wie ein Tribut to Hildegard Knef. Ein Geschenk für Connaisseure, die Musik des Herzens zu schätzen wissen, oder für Freunde des peinlich-unpeinlichen Schlagers der 60er- / 70er Jahre.) 24.00

ES - Less Of Everything LP (upset the - Less of Everything. The title of Es’ first full length LP could be interpreted as a manifesto pledge, an outright demand or a purely literal sonic descriptor of the London quartet’s glacial form of punk rock music. This tension between intent and interpretation has been a fundamental element of the group’s output from their formation. Es is Maria Cecilia Tedemalm (vocals), Katy Cotterell (bass), Tamsin M. Leach (drums) and Flora Watters (keyboards). Their 2016 debut EP, Object Relations, released on influential London punk label La Vida Es Un Mus, was described as “mutant synth-punk for our dystopian present” (Jess Skolnik, Bandcamp, Pitchfork). The band has since become a vital presence in London’s underground DIY music scene, as well as having toured the UK with the Thurston Moore Group in 2017.) 18.00

GIL SCOTT HERON - I'm New Here (10th Anniversary Edition) DLP (xl - This month Gil Scott-Heron's final studio album turns ten, so XL Recordings has decided to mark the occasion with a couple of special releases. Beat-maker Makaya McCraven has prepared a fully remixed and reworked version, while the London label has also decided to offer up this double-disc deluxe edition of the inspired original album. "I'm New Here" remains a vital work - one of Scott-Heron's best, we would argue - with the brilliance of his thought-provoking beat poetry and emotional sung vocals being matched by the quality of the deft, inventive 21st century backing tracks conjured up by producer Richard Russell and a wealth of superb musicians. You'll find the bonus material on disc two, with alternate versions and studio-based live recordings being joined by two previously unheard cuts.) 32.00

ICONOCLAST - Domination Or Destruction LP (sealed - Sealed Records release the complete remastered ICONOCLAST Discography including the immense self released 1983 Demo, The Flipside 7″ from 1985 plus Two Compilation tracks. It’s a small but perfectly formed discography and one that 36 years after it was first recorded still has power, intensity and rage. ICONOCLAST were part of the early 80’s American peace punk scene that included CRUCIFIX, BODY COUNT, AGAINST, ANOTHER DESTRUCTIVE SYSTEM, DIATRIBE, ARMISTICE and A STATE OF MIND. Idealistic bands highly influenced by CRASS which shined amongst the heavily nihilistic California Punk scene of the era. ICONOCLAST sound was in tune with DISCHARGE, early ANTISECT or WRETCHED while lyrically the songs were political and to the point. They played benefits for animal rights, anti nuclear, anti apartheid, anti police brutality, and Big Mountain. The demo was followed by their only vinyl release on Flipside which has two ragers and the more mellow In These Times which has a touch of THE MOB and OMEGA TRIBE about it. The band had tracks on various compilations including the seminal International P.E.A.C.E. Benefit LP on R Radical in 1984 which had the cream of the crop of international hardcore punk of the heyday. Domination Or Destruction comes housed in a heavy reverse board sleeve and includes a 24 page 11”x11” booklet containing interviews, photos and flyers from the era documented, 1983-1985, which will help understanding the band ideas and the local scene of the era. Sealed Records are proud to finally reissue Iconoclast’s catalogue, a criminally overlooked band for some but in the label’s eyes this LP is a must have for all punk households!) 20.00

LIIEK - s/t LP (Adagio830 - Liiek is a new Postpunk band from Berlin feat. peeps of Pigeon, Benzin, Aus etc - Think of Gang Of Four meets Q And Not U. - ltd to 300 copies plus 50 Testpress versions) 13.00

LUNCH LADY - Angel LP (upset the - LUNCH LADY are a sparky group from Los Angeles redolent of the desert heat, pining hearts and that chorus-soaked cloak of sound held dear by followers of British early 80s post-punk. Numbering four, Lunch Lady consist of Rachel Birke (vocals), Juan Velasquez (guitar), Victor Herrera (bass) and Robert Wolfe (drums). The band began in 2017 when Velasquez asked Birke if she’d like to start a new music project with him, their respective other groups Abe Vigoda and Heller Keller having co-existed in LA’s DIY orbit. Birke explains that they “immediately decided upon making the new band a kind of love letter to Kitsch.” Lunch Lady’s dreamy punk forays into country ballad territory certainly swoop into sentiment, but its the melancholy of artifice that defines their outlook. “I like the way Susan Sontag explains Kitsch as being something that lacks the context or materials to reach the effect it sets out to achieve. Also that tragic aspect of Kitsch, we loved the futility of how literal it is, we wanted to evoke that with our band name and definitely my lyrics” illuminates Birke further.) 18.00

MUTTER - Komm LP (hanse - Vinyl Repress des zweiten Albums von Max Müller & Co, das 1991 auf Whats so funny about erschien. Kult und Provokation. Die LP bietet neben großartigem Lärm philosophische Tiefgänge “vom Feinsten” (ein deutscher Schreiber), mit diversen Geschichten von z.B. Wolfgang Müller (Tödliche Doris), Françoise Cactus (Lolitas), Holger Hiller und David Lynch. In den meist am Telefon aufgezeichneten Stories geht es um Dinge des ganz alltäglichen Lebens wie amputierte Beine und abgerissene Penisfäden.) 26.00

MUTTER - Du Bist Nicht Mein Bruder DLP (hanse - Re-release of MUTTER´s 3rd album from 1992. MUTTER sing about the german re-unification and observe how things are in the wallless head. Twelve descriptions of moral impoverishment and socio-political dissolution, presented in brutal urgency, direct and irony-free. Fabulous truth and thus beauty, arising from the aesthetics of the ugly. A timelessly relevant album, far from being a product for casual consumption. Rock music for people who don't like rock music.) 28.00

NO SUGAR - rock n roll isn´t boring, its you LP (sabotage - With both a sonic and visual presence hearkening many of punk rock’s most sexually and politically-charged eras – from the 90s Grrrls of the Pacific Northwest to the Bromley Contingent of the 70s UK, the 80s Queercore movement to the Motor City ballrooms of 60s and right on down to the Sunset Strip’s forever-reigning ‘Queens of Noise’ – Kiel/Leipzig, Germany’s No Sugar is a bittersweet amalgam of fun, strutty, high-energy garage rock’n’roll and scathing sociopolitical criticism. The follow-up to 2018’s Wasting Time with Rock’n’Roll cassette, Rock’n’Roll Isn’t Boring, It’s You is a debut full-length that would be right at home atop any of the aforementioned ‘scenes’ as well as nestling snugly beside such current rabble-rousers as Surfbort, Amyl and the Sniffers, Uranium Club and Ex Hex.) 13.00

PEEL DREAM MAGAZINE - Agitprop Alterna LP (Peel Dream Magazine is the musical vehicle for NYC's Joe Stevens, who launched the band in 2018 with the critically acclaimed album "Modern Meta Physic," a mysterious, liminal tribute to the hazy end of ‘90s dream-pop that found its place on numerous "Best of 2018" lists. Now Peel Dream are back with "Agitprop Alterna," an album that pays homage to sonic and spiritual influences ranging from early Stereolab and Broadcast through stateside groups like Lilys and Yo La Tengo.. "Agitprop Alterna" finds Stevens channeling the collaborative spirit of the band's live incarnation in the studio, deepening the connection between the existential and the interpretive first explored on "Modern Meta Physic." It is a rejection of manipulation in all its forms and a buzzsaw against complacency; it's a rare trick to agitate without being obvious, and perhaps that makes "Agitprop Alterna" the most Peel Dream Magazine-like statement yet.) 23.00

POWER ALONE - rather be alone LP (indecision - Twelve years removed from the trio’s former band GATHER, founding members Eva Hall, Dustin Hall, and Allan Viscarra, reunited with the simple idea of starting a new band. The enthusiasm amongst them for this new project to be a straight edge band was paramount even in its earliest conception. Their only goal initially was to write and release a record, with no plans beyond that. It wasn’t until after the addition of Sean Lomeli and Joven Sibug that POWER ALONE finally felt like a complete band. Their desire to play music together outweighed the inconvenience of the long distances between them for band practice. Over the course of a year and countless hours of travel, together they completed eleven songs which would comprise their debut fulllength release, Rather Be Alone. With the writing process done, it came time for the the band to agree on someone to handle the task of recording the album. Being familiar with and fans of his work, the band traveled to Buzzbomb Studios in Orange County to record with Paul Miner. What started out as old friends wanting to get together to write a record, has quickly become a project that has taken on a life of its own. Though the future may be unclear, one thing that is not is their plan to continue writing, recording, and playing shows.) 20.00

PRIMO! - Sogni LP (upset the - Primo! will release their second full length album, Sogni, on April 17. Sogni is the follow up to 2018’s Amici. Drawing from the same collective musical lexicon as seen with Amici, Sogni (which translates from the Italian as 'Dreams') reflects on themes of decision-making, change, time, heartbreak and the practicalities of work and daily life. Primo!'s music is a study of duality, weaving through these themes with an idiosyncratic delivery that is punctuated by post-punk sensibilities, upbeat jangle and unexpected electronic flourishes. Sogni sees the introduction of Amy Hill on bass, adding to the original trio of Suzanne Walker (drums), Violetta Del Conte-Race and Xanthe Waite (guitars). Xanthe and Amy both play in Melbourne class act Terry too! There’s a freshness here, a breaking of new territory that's a testament to the group’s collaborative work ethic and experience in their associated bands. Spanning just under 30 minutes, Sogni’s twelve songs were conceived collectively in the rehearsal room and perfected in a live setting, before being recorded to an 8-track with Al Montfort (Terry, Total Control, UV Race) across a number of home studios in Melbourne.) 18.00

PRIMO! - Amici LP (upset the - Primo are Xanthe Waite, Violetta DelConte Race and Suzanne Walker. As a trio from Melbourne writing up-tempo, terse chorus and verse, Primo make use of two guitars, drums, sound effects and a group vocal sensibility to ornament their enquiries into deconstructed punk and indie rock. Their songs chime and charm, sounding at times bountiful, at others brittle, always buoyant with attention to detail. ‘Amici’ is Primo’s debut album, following on from their split 7” last year and a cassette of early work entitled ‘Primo Cassetto’ from 2016 on Hidiotic. ‘Amici’ was recorded and mixed by friend Al Montfort through 2017. The collected songs reference the 40-hour working week, the city, bureaucracy, walking, a mirage and a ghost. In form the songs are short and purposeful, “leaving footsteps in the snow” much like the protagonist of their wistful invocation to ‚Daphne’.) 18.00

PURITY RING - Womb LP (4AD - After more than five years, Purity Ring have returned to announce their third album. WOMB is entirely produced and recorded by the duo of Megan James and Corin Roddick. WOMB chronicles a quest for comfort, the search for a resting place in a world where so much is beyond our control. The striking vulnerability of 'rubyinsides' - “If I could, I would let you see through me” - charts a course that’s both intensely personal and deeply connected to those close to us, our kin whether by nature or nurture. As the ground shifts beneath their feet, WOMB’s characters help one another face death, despair, and world-altering discovery with resilience and grace.  For all the terrain it encompasses, WOMB’s quest culminates in 'stardew', a glittering, transcendent invitation to “just be where you are” - to experience the kind of powerful peace that can only be found by truly coming home.  WOMB follows Purity Ring’s 2012 internationally-acclaimed and highly influential debut Shrines and 2015’s another eternity. On another eternity, The New York Times praised the songs as “only a few steps removed from radio hits by singers like Ariana Grande and Ellie Goulding” while Rolling Stone called them “lustrous synth pop plus cavernous hip hop” and The New Yorker lauded the duo for “creat[ing] electro-pop that is as warm and human as it is cold and alien, an intoxicating combination that feels boldly futuristic.”) 22.00

SHABAZZ PALACES - The Don Of Diamond Dreams LP (Loser Edition) (Cruise the city in a night ship, dressed to kill in the Seville. Float down waterfalls and fountains, reclined on some pimp shit. The time zone ghost returns to paint a picture that echoes through infinity. The sun is put to rest, the soliloquy is killer bee. A diamond purpose lying beneath the surface. Nothing is ever what it seems, but forever is the theme. It’s time. Shabazz Palaces are back with yet another classic of divine mathematics design. More dazzling Afrofuturist sutras to illuminate distant constellations with sacred abstractions. Enter The Don of Diamond Dreams, raw and uncut, but glowing with 10,000 karat shine. If you adhere to the corporeal limitations of space and chronology, it’s been roughly a decade since Shabazz Palaces first shook the ramparts with their debut stylistic revolution, Black Up -- which Pitchfork named as one of the Best of the 2010s, hailing it as an “album of impossible vision.” But the project masterminded by vocalist and producer Ishmael Butler (with levitational assists from multi-instrumentalist Tendai "Baba" Maraire) has never conformed to gravitational consideration or terrestrial measurement. They are heirs to the astral imagination of Sun Ra and George Clinton, Octavia Butler and Alice Coltrane. If they technically claim residence in Seattle, their sound emanates much closer to Alpha Centauri than Alki Beach.) 23.00

TURBONEGRO - never is forever LP (inide - Another album in the series of re-releases of the classic Turbonegro albums on Indie Recordings: Never is Forever, originally released in 1994) 21.00

VELNIAS - Scion of Aether LP (eisenwald - A radiant crucible upon the oblivion horizon, VELNIAS conjures the reflection of the infinite aether within the fractal self. VELNIAS' timely return bears with it the indomitable Scion of Aether.While carrying the torch of VELNIAS’ trademark "Oppressive Rocky-Mountain Dirge," this latest effort expands upon their body of work with a confident maturing of the sound that is wholly their own. Laden with cascading dynamics through deft build-ups in texture and progression, the album dramatically traverses emotive soundscapes and explodes into engulfing heaviness. These transitions, paired with the seamless interplay of the instrumentation required for such skillful craft, are compounded through the composition of Scion of Aether.) 21.00

V/A - ak79 (40th anniversary) DLP (flying nun - AK 79 double vinyl in a gatefold sleeve with 12 page booklet featuring liner notes, artist bios, history and more. December 2019 marks the 40 year anniversary of an important record in NZ history; AK79. Within the grooves of this historical landmark compilation lies a connection to our musical whakapapa as New Zealanders and music lovers. A defining record, having captured a raw snapshot of the punk subculture in Auckland during the late 70s, the much-loved compilation is a living, breathing statement of what came before today. Raw, unfiltered, shambolic madness. The vision to capture the scene began with Bryan Staff (Head of Ripper Records) who saw reason to capture the music coming out of the local punk venues of the time. Originally released by Ripper Records in December 1979, bands that featured on the original pressing included The Swingers, The Scavengers, The Primmers, Proud Scum, Toy Love and The Terrorways. The abrasive and empowered response to the overindulgent progressive rock and glam rock music of the 70s, speaking out and saying something for the working class youth of today, in one of the most important times in New Zealand ‘rock’ history. The original master was discarded in 1982, which only created a demand for this enigmatic record. Responding to the call, an expanded version of AK79 arose, released only on CD by Simon Grigg and Roger Shepherd as a joint release by Propeller Records and Flying Nun Records in 1993. This time there were some late additions, including tracks from The Suburban Reptiles, The Spelling Mistakes, The Features and The Marching Girls, along with additional tracks from the first pressing. This particular reissue was remastered and mixed by Grigg, and came bundled with additional liner notes by Grigg, Staff and The Terrorways’ own Kerry Buchanan. Forty years on from its initial release, the spirit of the record still packs a punch and the feeling captured in these recordings are as relevant as ever.) 36.00



CD

TURIA - degen van licht CD (eisen - Turia`s upcoming record is an ode to the ageless lure of the unyielding mountains, and an exploration of the sweltering warmth which encompasses these heights every summer. Crackling green pastures full of life morph into scorching fields of withered grass and decaying alpine herbs. Shrieks of lammergeiers prowling for the bones of decomposing creatures reverberate throughout the high summits. The purgatory potential of the massif is revealed when death prevails. Witnessing these changes and enduring the delirious heat formed the basis for “Degen van Licht”. The maniacal drumming, tormented screams and spectral guitars coalesce into a sound that will be familiar for long-time followers of the band, while further developing their signature psychedelic aural structures. Cavernous reverbs evoke great depths and heights, while analog delays reminisce the phantasmal rays of the sun. The years of playing live across Europe since Turia’s last album “Dede Kondre” are revealed in an increased complexity of songwriting. Taking cues from mid-era Bathory to early Hawkwind, moving between ferocious sonic avalanches and churning dirges, “Degen van Licht” is sure to expand Turia’s idiosyncratic style of black metal into new territories. The album is once again produced, recorded, and mixed by Turia themselves with assistance of longtime collaborator M. Koops. A greater clarity in the production is enhanced by the tasteful mastering courtesy of Greg Chandler at Priory Recording Studios) 13.00

7“

BALAGAN / SUCK - Shit / Fuck 7“ (twintoe - Germany's Suck and Balagan have released a split 7-inch. It's called the SHIT / FUCK. Psychedelic garage punk) 7.00

BUSH TETRAS - There Is A Hum / Seven Years 7“ (third man - "Bush Tetras formed in 1979 out of NYCs No Wave/Post Punk/Art Funk/Dance Junk scene. The band's debut release Too Many Creeps on the legendary 99 Records is one of that scenes defining moments, capturing perfectly the vibe of that very particular moment in NYC. Bush Tetras was one of the supporting acts for The Clash's mythical 17-show run at Bond International Casino in the spring of 81. Topper Headon also produced their Rituals EP for Stiff Records. In 1983, the members of Bush Tetras went their own ways and the band remained relatively quiet and elusive for the next several decades. Original members Cynthia Sley, Dee Pop, and Pat Place now joined by Val Opielski taking over bass duties for the late Laura Kennedy. 2018 saw the release of Take The Fall EP on Wharf Cat Records the band's first new music in 10+ years and the welcome return of Bush Tetras!“) 7.00

THE HIVES - I'm Alive / Good Samaritan 7“ (third man - "It's been nearly two decades since the Swedish rock-n-roll heroes The Hives unleashed their debut album on the world and almost 5 years since new music has been released. Now, they will drop TWO intoxicatingly brash new songs I'm Alive and Good Samaritan on a limited edition double A-side 7" via Third Man Records. Both tracks were produced & mixed by Dave Sardy (LCD Soundsystem, Wolfmother) in Los Angeles. The band explains: ''I'm Alive' is a song about crawling up from under a rock and obliterating all resistance that sounds like crawling up from under a rock and obliterating all resistance because it is a band crawling up from under a rock and obliterating all resistance. Use it in your own life to help you obliterate your own resistance! Musically slower and with more chords than usual, but heavy man. Real heavy. 'Good Samaritan' is a song about helping people help themselves by not helping them? Are they sarcastic or do they hate people now? Is this punk? You never know with these Hives and it's been a while since I saw them so let's all go see them again and see what they are on about? Musically faster than usual but a surprising dive into the chorus that feels like going into hyperspace. Now it's not surprising anymore. Oh well.' Packaging: Full-color foldover sleeve, standard weight vinyl.“) 9.00


LP

75 DOLLAR BILL - Wood/Metal/Plastic/Pattern/Rhythm/Rock LP (75 Dollar Bill, a project by Che Chen and Rick Brown present Wood/Metal/Plastic/Pattern/Rhythm/Rock. "Che's interest in the Arabic modes of Mauritanian music has marked our sound quite a bit but I have brought some things, too. The plywood crate I play is a big factor, defining, by its positive qualities (a nice warm 'boom' sound) as well as by its simplicity, what we're likely to do in the percussion realm. Wood/Metal/Plastic/Pattern/Rhythm/Rock, this new record, differs quite a bit from the previous one, notably in the rhythmic 'tone.' Wooden Bag (2015) was all forward momentum, stomping and shaking, but the new record explores a long-standing interest of mine: odd and 'compound' meters. In most of my previous musical activities, I've convinced my partners to delve into this, but in 75 Dollar Bill it has just felt natural and I believe Che's modal investigations and melodic/harmonic tendencies enhance (and are enhanced by) this combination. The current record differs from the last in another big way: reinforcements! Over our few years together, Che and I have frequently had friends play with us at some of our gigs. There have been all sorts of permutations of instruments and some great friends/players who don't all appear on this record but here we are lucky to have a bunch of them: Cheryl Kingan (of The Scene Is Now) on baritone and alto saxes, Andrew Lafkas (of Todd Capp's Mystery Train) on contrabass, Karen Waltuch (of Zeke & Karen) on viola, Rolyn Hu (of True Primes) on trumpet and Carey Balch (of Knoxville's Give Thanks) on floor tom. Please enjoy Wood/Metal/Plastic/Pattern/Rhythm/Rock. 'Earth' saw is one of our earliest tunes and, I think, the first result of this 'compound meter' approach. It's a slow 9 beat phrase Che came up with for this odd groove. 'Beni Said' has no fixed rhythmic cycle but a roughly unison melodic phrase and a pulsing, loose feeling of 3s and 4s played using a box full of bottle caps. 'Cummins Falls' features Carey Balch on Diddley-beat floor tom and me reprising the maracas. 'I'm Not Trying To Wake Up' is another of our compound meter songs, this one using an 18 beat scheme." - Rick Brown) 25.00

75 DOLLAR BILL - I Was Real DLP (DLX-US-Press) (75 DOLLAR BILL is one of the essential groups at the heart of NYC's underground. Driven by the telepathic union of CHE CHEN's microtonal electric guitar and RICK BROWN's odd metered percussion their long-form sound is unmistakable and compelling. On their third album I Was Real, the group expands in bold new directions, embracing brilliant fuller orchestrations, joyous rockers and entrancing new textures. The album is 75 Dollar Bill's third, featuring new directions accompanying the band's previously established interest in sprawling, unusual grooves and microtonal melodies. The record is enhanced by the presence of eight additional players in various combinations over its nine tracks—but also shows off the duo's strength when stripped down to the core. Requiring a variety of approaches, the album was recorded over a four-year period, in four different studios, with the band's closest associates and collaborators in a range of different ensemble configurations. The album also features several "studio as instrument" constructions that harken back to the collage-experiments of the band's early cassette tapes, while at the same time pointing to territories altogether new. Double-LP version presented in a heavy tip-on gatefold jacket with textured clothe wrap and matte foil stamping.) 45.00

THE AHMAD JAMAL TRIO - The Awakening LP (be with - Be With Records present a reissue of The Ahmad Jamal Trio's The Awakening, originally released in 1970. Ahmad Jamal is a jazz giant and The Awakening is his iconic masterpiece. The landmark deep trio session -- recorded in NYC and released on Impulse! in 1970 -- is an essential album and perennially sought-after on vinyl. Ahmad Jamal is a jazz giant and The Awakening is his iconic masterpiece. As a "Zen master of jazz piano" and one of its greatest innovators, Jamal evolved his elegant sound with this adventurous record. The Awakeningshowcased his fast, richly melodic chops in remarkable variation. A consummate orchestrator of his own complex arrangements, Jamal was emboldened here by his potent sidemen. Backed by the exquisite timing of bassist Jamil Nasser and the precision of Frank Gant's drumming, he was liberated by the reliability of the trio setup. Free to juggle rhythmic dexterity with harmonic intricacy, Jamal brilliantly performed groove-oriented compositions written by himself, alongside wonderful renditions of tracks by Herbie Hancock, Oliver Nelson, and Antonio Carlos Jobim. It is impossible to discuss The Awakeningwithout acknowledging its indelible mark on golden age rap. A defining album of hip-hop culture, producers of the highest caliber have famously sampled elements of this timeless record to lace all-timers with a foundation for their most legendary tracks. Indeed, both the experimental "DJ Premier In Deep Concentration" and Shadez Of Brooklyn's seminal "Change" utilized Jamal's sparse title-track to stunning effect. A melancholy motif from "I Love Music" was employed by Pete Rock for Nas's crucial "The World Is Yours" whilst, over a more abstract refrain from the same track, Jeru memorably delivered his "Me Or The Papes" ultimatum. Over in Chicago, No I.D. elevated Common's peerless "Resurrection" by lifting a precise riff from Jamal's plaintive rendition of "Dolphin Dance" whilst the head-nod quality of All Natural's hypnotic "Renaissance" owes it all to the looped keys of Jamal's take on "You're My Everything". With bold beauty and unhurried grace, Ahmad Jamal plays piano differently from everyone else. He was a huge inspiration to Miles Davis and influential to how Wynton Kelly performed across Kind of Blue(1959). Presented in a gatefold sleeve adorned with the original eye-catching artwork throughout, along with the original sleeve notes. Mastered by Simon Francis and pressed for the first time on 180 gram vinyl.) 35.00

BLACK LEATHER JESUS - The Bible of Burnt Skin LP (At long last, The Bible of Burnt Skin has arrived on vinyl. Presented here is the 25th anniversary vinyl release of the harsh noise classic from legendary noise collective Black Leather Jesus. Since their formation Black Leather Jesus, led by Richard Ramirez, has been steadily producing some of the most essential releases in the underground. Similar to Anti-LaVey (Deadline Recordings, 1994) and Ho / Mo / Sexual (Protest Products, 1995), The Bible of Burnt Skin features the BLJ line-up up Kevin Ogg and Richard Ramirez making their way through a landscape of searing pummeling electronics. A standout in the vast catalog and essential piece of the '90s harsh noise scene. Twenty-five years since its original release, The Bible of Burnt Skin has been remastered for vinyl by James Plotkin and is available again for all to enjoy. Not for the faint of heart, The Bible of Burnt Skin demands to be played loud.) 25.00

C. LAVENDER - Myth of Equilibrium LP (editons mega - C. Lavender is a New York based sound artist and sound healing practitioner whose third full-length album explores meditative physical rituals of sound with binaural recordings from inside a geodesic dome in the Catskill Mountains of New York. “The future is a choice between utopia and oblivion,” noted architect, futurist and geodesic dome theorist Buckminster Fuller. Myth of Equilibrium delves into these divergent paths by featuring equal parts of pastoral raw acoustic percussion combined with C. Lavender’s signature “devastating caustic drones” (Ad Hoc) via her custom bass guitar and synthesizers. An assistant to the late pioneering electronic composer and Deep Listening founder Pauline Oliveros, C. Lavender’s astute editing and the binaural recording process places the listener within the heady fluctuating underworld she has created on this album. The recording environment of the geodesic dome allowed for sounds to transfer out beyond the confines of the walls as well as allowing outside sounds from the surrounding wilderness to permeate in like that of a mutating cell. The album suggests “headphone listening” for the full hypnotic experience Myth of Equilibrium presents to the listener. C. Lavender is a 2020 Pioneer Works (New York) Music Artist-in-Residence.) 22.00

ELEH - Harmonic Twins LP (important - ELEH's Harmonic Twins is slow moving monophony tuned to the overtone vocalizations generated by a particularly beautiful sound sculpture made by Harry Bertoia. These two pieces are inspired by early music, choral masses, motets, the cathedral reverberations of sacred geometry and deep bass. Harmonic Twins was originally debuted by ELEH at Unsound, Krakow in 2017. Harmonic Twins was pressed in an audiophile edition of 500 copies and is packaged in a heavy duty sleeve printed with metallic inks. An optimal listening environment is recommended in order to experience the low frequencies of Harmonic Twins.) 28.00

FRANK HURRICANE - Fuck wit It High: A Mystical Gangsta's Reflection Vol. 1 (Pympstrumental) LP (feeding tube - "In a world with nothing to love, you can't love anything that's of this world. You need something holy. Better yet, you need something holy and spiritual. EVEN better would be something holy and spiritual that fights for righteousness instead of destruction. Well, your fuckin' troubles are over, dude -- the Holy Spiritual Gangsta Frank Hurricane is back! There are parts of this new Frank Hurricane record that sound like perhaps he actually built a shirt from one of those 'rap music' Casio keyboards and then had baby elephants squeeze him between two waterbeds with his arms outstretched so he could tap out melodies. Frank moves through the murk of this lo-fi paradise with ease and, most importantly, space. This record's got air in it, the tones blow together like the leaves of a tree that sprouts degraded VHS tapes instead of fruit. It's recorded in a way that calls to mind cheap cassettes and British bedrooms in the early 1980s. But it's here and now. You could excerpt bits from this record and sneak them onto a Snatch Tapes compilation and no one would bat an eye. But this is Frank Hurricane, the guy who raps about pizza and tells outrageous stories about his travels while he warms up for a song about mountains, using the word 'psychedelic' as freely and as tonally as Miles Davis used the word 'motherfucker.' There's always been something to Frank that hints at hidden depths in his persona -- he operates with a wink and a smile but with simultaneous earnestness, and if you're not tuned in, his subtleties could whiz right past you. What he's doing here isn't out of character at all, it's an embrace of the twinkling possibility of low fidelity to teach lessons about cosmic potential, and Frank's interests are nothing if not geared toward cosmic potential. Last I checked, Bill Hicks once said this: 'It doesn't matter because it's just a ride. And we can change it any time we want. It's only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings of money -- a choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your door, buy guns, and close yourself off. The eyes of love, instead, see all of us as one.' What side do you think Frank Hurricane is on?" --Matt Krefting, Holyoke, MA, 2015) 25.00

FRANK HURRICANE - Holy Archives Vol. 1 LP (nfa - "Numbered, limited edition LP with hand-made covers featuring a very detailed stencil of Frank's face. Compiles some of the best of his early cassette and CDr recordings, including the first known versions of songs he later recorded in a proper studio, and which he typically stretches out into 30-minutes or more live. If you haven't seen him before, you really need to. Frank Hurricane, a.k.a. Hurricanes of Love, is an unstoppable force of nature, a crazy hippy griot, and a personified shit-eating grin all stuffed into one large meatball sub. With multiple albums under his belt via Feeding Tube Records we decided the world needed better access to some of his super rare, early cassette recordings -- which were in editions of 50 or fewer-- dating from when he first set out on the road singing and telling stories and spreading hilarious mayhem (we even hand-made the LP covers to match the spirit of the original homemade cassette art.) This is the first in a planned multi-part series of numbered limited editions of early Hurricanes of Love music. While the "freak folk" label is still accurate, some of these recordings sound a lot more traditional than you might expect? songs that usually get drawn out into 30-minute long tall-tale-ragas are here concise 3-minute fingerpicked haikus, like an Appalachian Bert Jansch, or an acid-inspired Jackson C. Frank. While the sound is sometimes a bit rough (Frank used whatever cheap cassette recorders he had) the music shines through, and will make even casual listeners say 'wow. . . who the hell is this guy?’“) 18.00

FRANK HURRICANE AND HURRICANES OF LOVE - Life is Spiritual LP (feeding tube - "It's fair to say that what the world needs now is love. And not just a drop here or there. Enter the Hurricane. This latest offering is a high point in a career that is all about being high and impossible to put a point on. Life is Spiritual -- it's an evocation, a flowering of a singular vision. There is nothing static in Hurricane's world, even if he is drawing on more recognizable forms than in the past. He's mastered the elusive art of being in the moment. His car is a character, the road is his friend, but what stands out the most is the string of places. The places don't so much define the people in them as they act on their inhabitants spiritually. Like ghosts. Out of the gate, yeti powder, pills, and spiritual rivers lead him to the corrupt town of Sneedville, TN. We meet Cricket O.G., who warns of weed laced with PCP, and even though a boy falls into a gasoline fire, the Sneedville blues can't get our Frank down. 'Susquehanna River Blues' spins a yarn about hitting a Burger King with a group of Juggalos and wrings bright beams of profundity out of the experience with the simplest language imaginable. 'Gatlinburg Blues' augments its colorful tale with eerie strings sawing away in the background, summoning ineffable drama and on 'Holy Mountaintop Rainstorm,' Frank sings against a phalanx of horns. 'Johnson City Blues,' with its fascist bovine building a pipeline, is a tale of a haunted devil town, sinners in the hand of an angry god, and the terror of early America that's never left us. The only peace is to be found in breezes and natural beauty. Frank wails like a banshee. The title track finds Frank reflecting, distilling not just the album but his worldview into a head-nodding jaunt. 'Life is spiritual' becomes an incantation, which Frank and Rene Baileybelt out like a call to the cosmos. 'Beneath Tha BP Lights' is an ethereal tale of a game of pool, and 'Mooneye Travelin Blues' is a lament of the highest order. 'Lonely Love' is just what it sounds like, Hurricane style. The road, for all of its adventure, is also a lonely place. 'Chattahoochee Flow' takes us out of this LP, but we know Frank's still rolling on..." --Matt Krefting, Holyoke, MA 2019 Cover art by Turner Williams. Includes a download card.) 25.00

FUJI​|​|​|​|​|​|​|​|​|​|​TA - Iki LP (hollow ground - "FUJI|||||||||||TA has created a work that operates as a beautiful nexus between the material and immaterial qualities of music. It is a lived-in dreamscape of deep, rich tonality. A remarkable debut." (Lawrence English) ) 26.00

GO HIRANO - Corridor Of Daylights LP (blank editions - Black Editions present the first ever vinyl edition of Go Hirano's third album, Corridor of Daylights, originally released in 2004. Corridor of Daylights is a quiet work of dreamlike brilliance. A home field recording where fragile piano melodies float alongside wind-chimes and wistful melodicas -- insects hum in the distance and a breeze gently rustles as summer day eases toward evening. Originally released in Japan by P.S.F. Records in 2004, Corridor of Daylights is a beautiful, soulful dispatch from early aughts Tokyo. Black Editions present Corridor of Daylights, newly mastered for its first ever vinyl edition. Includes bonus track. Comes in a deluxe edition featuring pearlescent paper, metallic inks, and foil stamped letters as well as two inserts including a newly translated illustrated story booklet; Includes download.) 25.00

GROUP A - Circulation LP (mecanica - Japanese industrial-experimental-synth outfit composed by Tommi Tokyo (synths, drum machines, vocals) and Sayaka Botanic (violin, sampler, tapes). They create a unique mixture of dark minimal synth and avant-noise with striking visuals and stage performances. This mini album was written and recorded through the winter of 2017 and 2018 based on the recordings of some improvisation sessions at home band's studio since they moved to Berlin in early 2016. The main inspiration was focused on the ongoing threads from the collapsed ecological system and the injustices of Mother nature and animals. “Circulation" was intended to capture their daily concerns and draw the destructive human behaviour through their sounds. The tension and the whole vibe is very different compared to previous works. These songs are purely made for home listening. "Circulation” was originally released in mid 2018 on a very short run by Kashual Plastik and sold out after just a few weeks. This new edition includes, besides all original tracks, an unpublished piece entitled “Deform” and a breathtaking remix prepared by the NYC based musician Hiro Kone.) 23.00

HARUOMI HOSONO, SHIGERU SUZUKI & TATSURO YAMASHITA - Pacific LP (victory - Victory present a reissue of Pacific, originally released in 1978. Reuniting the best session musicians Japan had to offer to make an album that would evoke the atmospheres of the South Pacific islands, the kind of places Japanese people spend their vacations. Pacificis a treat to the ears; its theme of the southern Pacific ocean and its warm cerulean waters relax its listeners with a fusion of city pop, soft jazz, and that good old 1970s funk while remaining surprisingly fully instrumental throughout all contributions from artists Haruomi Hosono, Shigeru Suzuki, and Tatsuro Yamashita. A true cult LP and an inspiration for a lot of so called "vaporware" music. LP includes insert.) 25.00

HARU NEMURI - Haru To Shura LP (Haru Nemuri Was Born In Yokohama In 1995. She Started Her First Band At The Age Of 17, Playing The Keys, But When She Turned 21 She Switched Seats And Grabbed The Microphone.

JUMA SULTAN'S ABORIGINAL MUSIC SOCIETY - Father of Origin DLP + CD BOXSET (eremite - Deep archeology into a long buried and previously undocumented chapter in the history of the early '70s loft era brings forth the revelatory Father of Origin, Eremite's box set retrospective of percussionist and bassist Juma Sultan's Aboriginal Music Society. Drawn from Sultan's mammoth private archive of recordings, this groundbreaking set includes two audiophile LPs and a CD, a 28-page 12" x 12" book featuring previously unpublished photographs and ephemera, and a detailed historical essay by jazz scholar Michael Heller, all manufactured to highest quality-freak standards. This old school multimedia extravaganza exposes some of the most extraordinary and explosive free jazz of the period to the light of day for the first time. Established by Sultan and percussionist Ali Abuwi in Woodstock in 1968, Aboriginal Music Society was both a radical arts organization and a killer band. For ten years, Sultan and the loose alliance of like-minded musicians in AMS produced independent concerts, owned and operated their own recording studio, and collaborated with legendary artist-run New York loft space Studio We on performances and educational programs. But during that whole time, they never released a record. Inspired by an emerging understanding of African cultures and the political ideas of the black power moment, AMS synthesized an African approach to percussion and collective performance with the revolutionary jazz of its day. In open-ended free improvisations they played an incendiary mix of massive trap kit, hand drum grooves, and heaven-storming free jazz. The first of the set's two LPs, a 1970 Boston studio date, features a New York-Woodstock sextet -- including Sultan, Abuwi, Gene Dinwiddie, Philip Wilson, Ralph Walsh, and Earl Cross -- engaged in a characteristically percussion-heavy improvisation. The other vinyl disc features a private jam session by Sultan, Abuwi, and saxophonist Frank Lowe at the Broadway headquarters of AMS. Recorded in April 1971, it predates by several months Lowe's recording debut on Alice Coltrane's World Galaxy. The CD features yet another historic meeting -- an undated concert with the Woodstock crew and a trio of midwesterners recently relocated to New York -- saxophonist Julius Hemphill, cellist Abdul Wadud, and drummer Charles "Bobo" Shaw, all members of the St. Louis music and arts collective, Black Artists Group. Father of Origin is presented in a heavyweight telescoping box in paper wraps screen-printed by Alan Sherry at Siwa, who also screen-printed the LP sleeves, CD jacket, and additional loose memorabilia.) 120.00

LES ATTITUDES SPECTRALES - vampire in the summer LP (specific - LAS have returned with full force bringing a highly engaging and dynamic album that just keeps giving. The slight change in direction away from riffy Blues Fuzz rock and Julien's clearer vocals, tight AF drums, obliterating guitar solos and grooves for days are highly welcome. ) 17.00

MIGUEL FLORES - Lorca: Lost Tapes (1989-1990) LP (Buh Records present a new album by Peruvian composer and musician Miguel Flores. Lorca: Lost Tapes (1989-1991) recovers unpublished recordings made for stage works inspired by the life and work of the great Spanish playwright, Federico García Lorca. It is an atmospheric and minimalist album, where you'll find flamenco airs, Andean and Afro- Peruvian sounds, vocal experimentation, and various sound effects, all stitched together in a simple but creative studio montage, which turns these pieces into a dreamy landscape. A member of several rock bands in the Seventies, Flores began an intense period of sound experimentation towards the end of that decade, building a large archive that has remained unpublished. His experimental work became known internationally with the publication of Primitivo" (BR 068LP, 2015), which rescued unpublished recordings of 1983, only presented live at the time, and which represents a high point in the fascinating movement of Peruvian experimental music from the late Seventies and early Eighties, animated by such artists as Arturo Ruiz del Pozo, Manongo Mujica, and Luis David Aguilar. Andean and Amazonian sounds, ancestral evocations, coexisted with the instrumentation and musical resources of free improvisation, concrete and cosmic music. Lorca: Lost Tapes (1989-1991) is published for the first time, and in vinyl format, as part of the Essential Sounds collection, with which Buh Records presents a series of fundamental works of the Peruvian musical avant-garde.) 29.00

ONENESS OF JUJU - Chapter Two: Nia LP (now again - "Essential spiritual jazz originally issued on the lauded Strata-East label. Magical, mystical, Afrocentric, progressive -- words that could be used to describe any number of musical compositions by Sun Ra or his cosmic brothers and sisters, from John to Alice Coltrane, early '70s projects on record labels like Detroit's Tribe or Houston's Lightin' or the interests of one Washington, DC native named Jimmy Gray that centered under one, perfect moniker: Black Fire. Gray spent nearly three decades pushing boundaries as a Black American promoter, distributor and, finally, record label owner. Together with Oneness of Juju's leader James 'Plunky Nkabinde' Branch, Gray oversaw sixteen releases on Black Fire Records between 1975 and 1996. These are the definitive reissues of five of the label's key titles; all were lacquered -- most directly from master tape - by legendary Los Angeles mastering engineer Bernie Grundman, With this set, Oneness Of Juju and Black Fire's story burns forth into its fifth decade, its message not tempered, its sound pure. It's cycle, once again, complete. Each release is packaged in a thick, tip-on sleeve and includes a deluxe booklet with extensive notes on the album, the Black Fire collective, and the musical and cultural revolution they created. Limited edition, one time pressing.“) 30.00

SIGLO XX - s/t LP (onderstroom - “I hear noises, imaginary sounds”. Re-issue of Siglo XX's first tape. Recorded in April 1981 and distributed among friends and at gigs, this tape was the first product of their collaboration. And what a tape this is! Heavily influenced by the likes of Joy Division & the whole Factory scene, Belgian’s finest produced a total of nine incredible dark but catchy cold wave tunes. Add to this two bonus tracks from their first demo cassette & you have an essential document of the first Siglo XX years.) 22.00

THE PATHETX - 1981 LP (third man - "The formation of the Pathetx began in 1980 with singer, Mark Leavitt, and guitarist, Greg Kutcher. They had been playing together in their basements for a while and were looking to get out on stage in the punk clubs in and around Detroit. They assembled the rest of the group, drummer Ted Meek, guitarist happy Tom McHenry and 16-year-old bass player Mick Nasty, through newspaper ads, local 'punk walls' and music stores. The Pathetx took their inspiration from the West Coast punk scene that was happening at the time, bands like The Germs, Black Flag and Dead Kennedys, as opposed to most of the other punk bands that were kicking around Detroit who were looking to The Stooges and MC5 to show them the way. Nunzio's was the band's unofficial home away from home but they played every legendary punk club in the area: Bookies Club 870, Freezer Theater, Red Carpet, Windsor's Coronation Tavern... you name it, The Pathetx played it. They shared the stage with Detroit's first wave punk bands as well as the superstars of this new hardcore thing that was happening. They played the legendary Endless Summer Skatepark show with Necros, Negative Approach and Meatmen. Their live shows were filled with beer, blood and pogos. Third Man Records is proud to announce the first-ever release of The Pathetx - 1981. 45rpm.“) 23.00

TOTENMOND - auf dem Feuer LP (twiste chord -Ursprünglich 1984 als „Wermut“ gegründet, liegen die Roots der Backnanger Metal-Band Totenmond klar im frühen (Deutsch-) Punk. 2001 erschien mit „Auf dem Mond ein Feuer“ das vierte Album, auf dem sich Totenmond die großen Deutschpunk-Bands der 80er vornehmen und neu interpretieren. Das Album wurde nur in einer kleinen Vinylauflage gepresst und aufgrund des Slime-Covers „Polizei SA SS“ indiziert. Seitdem ist „Auf dem Mond ein Feuer“ in keiner Form mehr erhältlich. Jetzt zum ersten Mal wieder auf Vinyl, ohne das indizierte Slime-Cover, dafür mit den restlichen 16 Knallern. Totenmond sind eine der ganz großen und eigenwilligen Nummern im Metal, haben mehr als ein halbes Dutzend Alben raus und verneigen sich hier in ihrem ganz eigenen Stil vor Punkgrößen wie Inferno, Razzia, Ton Steine Scherben, Chaos Z, Boskops, OHL, Slime und EA80. Dazu kommen eigene Songs aus der „Wermut“-Zeit und die Vertonung des Erich Mühsam-Gedichtes „Der Revoluzzer“. Unglaublich druckvoller und fetter Sound, im legendären Hamburger Soundgarden-Studio aufgenommen und bis heute unerreicht. Metal-Crust-geschwängerter Highspeedpunk mit Totenmond-typischen tiefgestimmten Gitarren und der puren Aggression. Primitiv, rüde und eben keine popelige Coverplatte, sondern richtig geile und liebevolle Eigeninterpretationen von Stücken, die der Band am Herzen liegen. Im Original via Massacre Records erschienen, der Repress kommt mit restauriertem Artwork inklusive 350g Cover, Textinlay und schwarzen Innenhüllen.) 15.00

TULIPS - Easy Games LP (contraszt - On their outstanding debut LP “Easy Games” TULIPS from Cologne (Germany) create a sound that perfectly fills the gap between dark wave and dreamy pop-punk: Spherical synthie sounds hit on straight basslines and drumming that brings up reminiscences of 80s Punk Sounds. The guitar melodies adds an melancholic note to it and is topped by the oustanding voice of Luna. Their demo from 2018 was already impressive and the band blew everyone’s mind who saw them performing live, but with the 7 songs of “Easy Games” they step into another sphere. If you like old stuff like Siouxsie and the Banshees and/or newer bands like The Organ you should definetly give TULIPS a listen.) 13.00

WILLIE LANE - A Pine Tree Shilling's Worth LP (feeding tube - "Proud we are to reissue the final piece of Willie Lane's original Cord-Art LP trilogy. It was recorded in various spots throughout Western Mass, in the years following the release of Guitar Army of One. Initially issued in 2016, in an edition of 350, this lovely session disappeared into the fog of the forest before most folks were able to catch its scent. Now it has re-emerged with re-interpreted cover art by Max Milgram, and sonics we think will please even the most finicky listener. A Pine Tree Shilling's Worth is my personal fave of Willie's first three Cord-Art LPs. It has a hazily unstoppable flow, incorporating elements of American Primitive and Bay Area Ballroom-era string greats in equal measure. Mostly played on electric (although there are some acoustic overdubs), the music manages to be abstract and melodic at the same time, with individual lines splanging off in oddball directions, then reasserting their formal qualities inside a single musical breath. The specific quotes that exist inside the playing are crafty, episodic and display a strange syncretic streak. A nice example of this is the sprawling track, 'New Arrivals,' on the first side. Lane manages to obliquely reference both John Fahey's improvisations for the soundtrack of Michelangelo Antonioni's film, Zabriskie Point (1970), as well as Jerry Garcia's work that was used in place of the bulk of Fahey's music after he and the director had a savage falling out. Willie reconciles their differing approaches to blues architecture with mighty slide playing and sheer dint of will. Rumors are currently swirling that Willie's next Cord-Art release will have vocals, so this three pack of instrumental genius may well be the primary documentation of one phase of this maestro's aesthetic trajectory. Hope you've got them all." --Byron Coley, 2019) 26.00

WILLIE LANE - Guitar Army Of One LP (feeding tube - "Remastered reissue of the second brilliant Willie Lane LP released by Cord-Art, originally available (for a few moments, anyway) in 2012. Guitar Army of One is a bit less folk oriented than its predecessor, Known Quantity (FTR 413LP), in as much as there's more electricity and pedals being employed. But Willie's playing at this time was such a weird hybrid -- from quiet country blues passages to blown psychedelic bong-wash in the blink of an eye -- that no technique or approach was ruled out. Everything was permitted. Which led to some mind-bending results. As the album's title infers, Willie is on his lonesome this time with nary a collaborator in sight. But the sounds he layers on tape can be so complex (not unlike some of the work by his occasional running partner, Matt Valentine) that one gets the sense this the sound of Willie Lane playing duets with himself. Recorded in Philadelphia, shortly before he returned to Western Massachusetts to become, like the fictional Jesus, a carpenter, Guitar Army of One is a superbly satisfying spin. From the Heldon-esque vibe of 'Ill Star,' to the damaged canoodling of 'Rare Psych For Wayne' (which is also in the running for best Record Scum song title of the 21st century), there's a strange surprise around every damn corner. A monster of a record." --Byron Coley, 2019. Edition of 500.) 25.00

WILLIE LANE - Known Quantity LP (feeding tube - "Newly remastered reissue of WILLIE LANE's 2009 solo guitar LP, Known Quantity, originally released on his own Cord Art label. Over the last few years, this album has been requested at the store more often than just about any other, but it sold out not long after it was issued and has risen in price consistently since that time. Listening to Known Quantity, it's not hard to understand why it has such a strong rep. Lane came out the Hampshire College scene that aligned itself with the Apostasy Records crowd (Krefting, Shaw, Rosenblum, etc.). His first known recordings were actually with some of the noisier experimental units associated with this cabal. Willie was based in Philadelphia for a long time after college, where he fell in with Jack Rose and the whole Fishtown scene of the early Oughts. Moving back to the Valley, Willie also began working with Matt Valentine's tribe, and his first solo album,Recliner Ragas, was issued as a C.O.M. CDR in 2006 before getting vinylized by the Humito label in 2012. And keen listeners out there will detect a certain 'Spectrasound' feel to some of the electric passages here. The music on Known Quantity is a buttery mix of electric and acoustic string aktion. SAMARA LUBELSKI plays bass on one track, but it's all solo apart from that. And it's a wonderland of textures and sound shapes. Some of the pieces are almost straight ahead (somewhat more in tunes with the work Willie does when he plays live), but others are as wobbly and jagged as a drunk peacock. It's an amazing record, and rewards multiple listens with constantly unfolding details. MAX MILGRAM (from Watery Love) did the new cover art (based on the original LP's photographic frontispiece) and the mastering by CARL SAFF is mighty nice. Enjoy..."—Byron Coley, 2018. Edition of 500.) 25.00

CD

CRAIG SMITH / MAITREYA KALI - Apache / Inca CD (The psychedelic masterpiece nobody heard -- First ever official, authorized release of psychedelic mega-rarity. After suffering an LSD-induced mental breakdown, Los Angeles-based songwriter Craig Smith renamed himself Maitreya Kali and custom-pressed Apache / Inca, a double-LP documenting his musical, personal, and spiritual journey. His message to the world, encoded on the album jackets in rambling, quasi-mystical Messianic verse, was urgent, desperate, delusional, and disturbing. Recorded between 1967 and 1971, the music tells a different story. Achingly beautiful, haunting acoustic folk songs; luminescent psychedelic folk-rock; eerie, off-kilter acid rock; fragments; field recordings -- all meticulously woven into a magical, mesmerizing whole. Apache / Inca is an extraordinary work. Not the dark, self-indulgent ramblings of a cracked Messiah, but a thoughtfully-crafted collection of work by a singer and songwriter of remarkable depth and talent whose world was falling apart. Soon afterwards Maitreya -- and Craig -- disappeared into the shadows. He died homeless in a North Hollywood Park in 2012. Decades after its creation, Apache / Inca was discovered by collectors and hailed as a psychedelic masterpiece. It is now one of the most revered and sought-after artifacts of the era. Includes seven tracks by the Penny Arkade, produced by Michael Nesmith. CD version comes as a digipak; includes 32-page booklet.) 20.00


MAGAZINES

BLANK FORMS - Vol. 5: Aspirations of Madness BOOK (Aspirations of Madness, Blank Forms' fifth collection of archival, unpublished, or newly translated texts, takes its title from a series of interviews with Japanese free jazz pioneer Masayuki Takayangi that were published in Japanese in 1975-76 and are published here in English for the first time. The interviews provide a rare look at Takayanagi's eccentric practice and personality, both long under-recognized by audiences outside (and often, inside) of Japan. The postwar Japanese history that Takayanagi describes also surfaces in this publication's opening piece, a poetic tribute by the writer and artist Louise Landes Levito one of Takayanagi's contemporaries, the poet Kazuko Shiraishi. Aspirations of Madness includes a second Levi poem as well, "A Deep River", written while at La Monte Young and Marian Zazeela's Dream House in 2003, while Charles Curtis was rehearsing "Just Charles and Cello in the Romantic Chord", a composition by Young that Blank Forms plans to present in Spring 2020. Complementing this tradition of Japanese free improvisation and poetry is the republication of a 1977 interview with Joseph Jarman, the great composer, poet, and multi-instrumentalist. The interview took place a few months after the publication of Jarman's book Black Case Volume I & II: Return from Exile, a collection of writings from 1960 to 1977 (Blank Forms, Fall 2019). The volume also feature Charles Stein's introduction to Being = Space x Action. In its specificity and rarity of focus, Stein's text offers valuable information on a vibrant artistic network of the recent past, as well as an extended look at the evolution of Catherine Christer Hennix's complex practice. Further along, Aspirations of Madness features an excerpt from The Tree of Music, a cross-cultural treatise by the Russian musicologist Genrich "Henry" Orlov, the English translation of which has never been published before. The Tree of Music is a sweeping philosophical study of global music and cultures with universalist and spiritualist ambitions, excerpts of which are here selected and introduced by the composer and pianist Leo Svirsky. Aspirations of Madness closes with one of Maryanne Amacher's final pieces of writing, The Agreement, from 2009. The text takes the form of a letter between Amacher and the Open Ended Group, with whom she had planned to collaborate on her final, unfinished project, Lagrange: A Four Part Mini Series. Aspirations of Madness features additional contributions by Alan Cummings, Bill Dietz, Peter Kastakis, Art Lange, Leo Svirsky, Satoru Obara, and Tomoyuki Chida, and is edited by Lawrence Kumpf with Joe Bucciero. 242 pages; 6x8 inches.) 25.00

7“

DREGS - Watch out 7“ (DREGS: the least valuable part of anything. Hardcore Punk in it’s essence. By outcasts for outcasts. Fast riffs, angry mosh parts and messages aimed to empower the ones that should run the scene. Women to the front, queers to the front. Up the punks. Reflect on yourself. This debut EP of rad, smart and kicking band from Vienna, Austria offer 5 songs recorded at Elephantwest Audio and mastered in Artifact Audio NYC by Sasha Stroud (Firewalker).) 6.00

EAT MY FEAR - Taking back space 7“ (refuse - "Taking back space” is the second ep of the queer feminist hardcore punk band EAT MY FEAR from Berlin. It's a 6 song explosion in under 10 minutes, a loud, angry and still absolutely necessary mix of straight edge hardcore and queer punk, full of political expression. Adriessa's pissed vocals tell stories about the experience of migration, about animal exploitation, about not fitting in because of homo- and transphobia. And while Eat My Fear created a place for all their anger, their ep is also a manifesto about supporting each other, about not giving up but fighting back. Eat My Fear are fighting a fight that still needs to be fought, together with bands like G.L.O.S.S., IRON, RESPECT MY FIST or ANTI-CORPOS, whith some of them they share members with. If you're ready to take back your space, this is the perfect soundtrack to fight back! This is co-release between Emancypunx Records and Refuse Records) 6.00

FUTURE ISLANDS - Tomorrow / The Fountain 7“ (upste the - 'TOMORROW / THE FOUNTAIN’ (Limited repress on transparent vinyl, 300 copies only) 'Tomorrow' / 'The Fountain' sees the band at the top of their game, releasing some of their most compelling and sophisticated songs yet, building on the aching themes and poignant focus of their last album 'On The Water’. 'Tomorrow' is a soulful swoon, its light tread is mesmerising amongst the slow burning synth cycles and relaxed bass progress. Samuel T. Herring's ever-impressive vocal has never sounded more akin to Sam Cooke as he smoothly laments "I'm saying sorry every time we talk" before careening into a flight of sustained, arguably uncontrollable emotion. Some choice, additional vocals from Jenn Wasner (of Wye Oak), Lexie Mountain and Elena Johnston only make the song seem more impassioned; its ardent nature perfectly rendered into melody.) 8.00

FUTURE ISLANDS - Feathers & Hallways 7“ (upste - With this brand new double A-side single - their first material as a focussed three-piece - Future Islands allow us to glimpse some of the poetic grandeur and heartfelt melody that their forthcoming second album is readying. Fast becoming the most meaningful band of Wham City's offspring, Future Islands are masters of marrying upbeat songs with soul searching lyrical content and the 'Feathers & Hallways' 7" is their best example yet. "The Happiness Of Bring Twice" is Sam's impression of what true love can be when left to instinct. Sometimes the emotions you feel won't make sense in your head and this track makes this a case in point. Clasping beats and a buoyant bass and synth interplay courtesy of Gerrit and William help set up the perfect backdrop for Sam's extraordinary vocal delivery, at once tender, then joyous, then wounded. 'Pinnochio' is as revelatory as it is regressive plunging into the hidden depths and memories of the protagonist in the song. It's a slow-burn track taking in a persistant bass motif and soaring keyboard line which builds to a air punching climax. With "Feathers & Hallways" Future Islands prove that they guide us through our heart's darkest moments and greatest thrills forever and always.) 8.00

REPUBLIC OF DREAMS / ALLES BRENNT - split 7“ (rwc - Screamo to the max. Two bands from Germany. You know the deal!) 6.00

VITAL IDLES - s/t 7“ (upset the - If there isn't yet a tradition of following a magnificent debut album with a, shoelaces-tightened, excellent mission statement of an EP (one would be forgiven to think that the debut long player was the mission statement already, breaking in on the scene/ry with such unmissable and rarely seen sensory delight, but then upon hearing the subsequently released EP one is tempted to think: "Wow! That debut was truly astonishing but now they are REALLY on a mission!"), well, if this tradition doesn't already exist - and thinking about Young Marble Giants' scene-defining "Final Day" 7", Pylon's absolutely essential "!!" 10" and Carla Dal Forno's recent-yet-already-classic "The Garden" 12" one might argue that this tradition is undoubtedly fully existent (more so: alive and well) - then this self-titled extended play from much beloved Glasgow quartet Vital Idles would surely be a striking argument for the genesis of such a tradition. On the other hand, when taking sides with the many seasoned critics arguing that this tradition has indeed long been established, one might confidently list this effort as a bona fide example of such practice, sharing with the aforementioned not only an astute and accomplished artistic ability but also a sense of minimalist psychedelia that transcends restrictions set by redundant referencialism and grateless genre parameters such as "Post Punk" or "Minimal Pop" (on which the same critics, of course, often disagree). That being said, ping-ponging from gritty post punk smashes to minimal pop moments and vice versa, Vital Idles' sphere of stripped-down efficiency and sharp personal observation also brings to mind crucially overseen half-chord-wonders Glorious Din as well as antipodean contemporaries like Constant Mongrel (who also had their latest release mastered by the fantastic M. Young), Primo! (who also had their latest release mastered by the fantastic M. Young) and Terry (who also had their latest release mastered by the fantastic M. Young). The EP reveals itself as a steady, hypotenusal rise of intensity and momentum, starting with the hallucinogenic restrain of opener "Break A", building tension throughout the gothic-noise flourishes of "Seconds" and "Rustle Rustle" and culminating in "Careful Extracts", a 2 minute burst of carefree introspection that might as well be the unintentional answer to early career highlight "My Sentiments": "just me and my/ tired ire/ a a a a a a a a a a". In conclusion: Vital Idles' debut was truly astonishing but - wow! - now they are truly on a mission.) 7.00


LP

ALTERI - Trauma LP (hoyl goat - Crust / Death Metal from Cologne, 2020 / 12" MLP holding 6 songs with english & german lyrics. ) 13.00

BAMBOO - Daughters Of The Sky LP (upset the. The album was written and recorded over a two year period where ideas and arrangements were allowed to slow-cook and develop over time, in contrast with the last album 'The Dragon Flies Away' which came together relatively quickly for the duo. The music comprises the usual (for Bamboo) mix of Horwood's flawlessly resonant folk cadence and Carlisle's pristine synth production, whilst TR808 drum machines and samples lock together with acoustic drums, themselves often given the 'Tony Visconti' Eventide Harmoniser treatment of Berlin-era Bowie albums. Ancient ARP synthesisers and Mellotron flutes and horns sit next to contemporary digital sounds and samples in a hauntological tapestry over which Horwood can intone her sometimes mournful, often uplifting vocals. The first single taken from the album, 'Weeping Idols', released March 29th reflects upon a recurring theme of religious dogma and spiritual entrapment, and is accompanied by a stunning video shot by Jack Barraclough around the North Coast of Northern Ireland, taking in the Giant's Causeway and the Kinbane Castle ruin. Carlisle's infectiously colourful synth riffs and pop production, featuring sun-burst harp playing from Brighton-based singer/multi-instrumentalist Emma Gatrill, contrasts sharply with the darker tone of Horwood's lyric, jarring in a way reminiscent of 'You Have Placed A Chill On My Heart' by The Eurythmics.) 18.00

BLACK MIDI - Schlagenheim LP (Schlagenheim was recorded with Speedy Wunderground producer Dan Carey, who the band praises for his quick, unfussy approach. black midi laid down eight of the record’s nine tracks in just five days. The process was one of refining and rebuilding tracks around the initial structures. Five hour jams would sometimes yield a riff that then became a few bars of a song. As anyone who’s been lucky enough to catch black midi live over recent months will testify, black midi’s songs are slippery creatures.) 21.00

BOHREN & DER CLUB OF GORE - Patchouli Blue DLP (pias - 5 years since ‘Gore Motel’, Bohren & Der Club of Gore hold their smoky line of doom-jazz in a sublime, haunting 10th album that once again taps into that interzone between classic Lynchian motifs and fizzing gothic undercurrents. The sylvan intimacy of ‘Patchouli Blue’ is a Bohren's ineffable skill at lulling listeners into richly hypnagogic states. As ever they prize a deep sense of cool yearning that hearkens back to the slow burn atmospheres of classic film noir as much as David Lynch and Angelo Badalamenti’s soundtracks, dark ambient and the bluest jazz, plus the doom metal of Black Sabbath, Gore, and their dusty echoes in Earth. It’s surely a velvet cloak for the senses; essentially a heavily tranquilising sound, but one fraught with an existential angst that’s won them a captive audience over the years, and is fully in effect here. As ever, ‘Patchouli Blue’ is a strictly all instrumental affair and was recorded in Cologne and Mülheim An Der Ruhr - site of all their recordings (bar ‘Mitleid Lady’) since the seminal ‘Sunset Mission’ (2000). It was composed by core members Christoph Clöser (Tenor Saxophone) and Morten Gass (Piano, Engineer, Producer) and is performed by them along with longtime member Robin Rodenburg’s plucked, stalking bass lines in a classically sulky, gratifying way bound to make your glass of single malt taste smokier, sweeter. As such, the album is really meant to be taken in one sitting, but if we’re to point out highlights, the slow rise of slinking drum machine and creeping arps of ‘Vergessen & Vorbei’ is just masterful, as is the distant, burnished, Vangelis-like synth glow and elegiac brass of their last call, ‘Meine Welt ist schön’. Basically it’s dead good for what ail’s ya.) 26.00

THE FALL - Schtick - Yarbles Revisited LP (beggars -Available for the first time on vinyl, this collection compiles the singles released around This Nation’s Saving Grace and includes 5 tracks from the bands’ 1985 BBC Peel sessions. Also included is the track “Ma Riley” which made its debut on the CD box set in 2011.) 20.00

THE FALL - 458489 A Sides LP (white vinyl) (beggars - The seventeen songs collected here come from The Fall’s Brix Smith era, aka “the golden era of Fall releases.” This is a perfect introduction to the band, and as legendary critic Robert Christgau said, it’s “The only Fall record any normal person need own”. Originally released in 1990, this album has never been released on ) 20.00

HANDLE - In Threes LP (upset the rhythm - Powered by looping, hypnotic synth lines, quaking flexes of bass, clattering tribal percussion and expeditious, often agitated vocals that cordially sprint, Handle's songs – all of which clock in around the two minute mark – owe as much to performance poetry as they do to the vibrancy of post-punk and new wave. In these times of anxiety and confusion, Handle provide a much-needed dose of musical catharsis, albeit disorientating at times, pre-empting sense from the shards of sound they gather about themselves. 'Life’s Work' begins with isolated swells of pitch before driving full throttle into an exuberant rhythmic workout. 'Sunday Morning' shares this elasticated feel for melody and communication, twisting about itself in rubbery fashion. 'Coagulate' is more disembodied from the pulse, but similarly retains a boldness of vision. 'Step By Step' showcases what Handle excel at, it's a clangorous leviathan of beat-forward dance punk, peppered with Leo's fluid vocal inertia. It's dizzying yet divinely exuberant. 'Punctured Time' evokes the same cascading flow "Punctured time, bicycle wheel, what if I told you that your lips were like venus, lips were like what? Lips were like venus and that my tongue was a trampoline?" sings Leo amid undulating bass, toppling drums and jabs of keyboard ambience. Handle make music occupied by dark shapes that move beneath a roiling surface. Jolting, shattering, cracking, smoothed, bounded, punctuated. Handle's debut album ‘In Threes’ is a collection of frenetic sounds for frenzied forms. 'In Threes' was recorded and mixed by Robin Williams and follows on from the band's previous EP 'Demonstrations', released through their own imprint Absolute Fiction.) 18.00

KAPUTT - Carnage Hall LP (upset the The songs on 'Carnage Hall', Kaputt's debut album released by Upset The Rhythm this September, were all written in Glasgow between 2016-2018. Following on from the independence referendum and the subsequent Brexit vote these songs couldn't help but be influenced by the maelstrom of political hypocrisy and confusion in the air. Other themes prevalent on this energetic corkscrew of an album include the offbeat happenchance of life in 2019, notions of surveillance, identity (personal as well as the biscuit-tin styled persona of the Scottish Highlands), industrialisation and family. There's a lot of room left for things to turn quietly surreal too. Title track 'Carnage Hall' is about an alternative dimension in which Judy Garland's famous Carnegie Hall show, (one of the group's favourite albums), was a total bust rather than the roaring success it proved to be. In deciding to call the record 'Carnage Hall' the band wanted to reflect on this "deeply uncertain and deeply unstable, odd political time... maybe we are all in an alternative dimension, all living in the Carnage Hall at this moment" alludes Donnelly. Album opener 'Rats' with its refrain of "it's so much darker now" is a crumpled twist of song. Explosive, ruminative and content to bemuse with a loose political allegory drawn out from a dank pet shop. 'Accordion' lilts with more breezy tendency, "forward, forward, I'm always moving forward" they collectively sing as if affirming their musical manifesto. Kaputt excel at fidgety, speedy outpourings of ideas, their songs zap by, multifaceted and bejewelled with detail and colour. 'Parsonage Square' is another great example of this, it's a song about public access, panopticons and paranoia hurtled into a motley rip of melody that feels very much like a fairground ride being cranked up a gear. Meanwhile 'Suspectette' concerns itself with Mary Weiss of the The Shangri-Las' FBI file. 'Think About Your Face' investigates those certain grimaces made in passionate embrace. Bizarre and wonderfully outlandish, Kaputt enjoy keeping things as unpredictable as the tempo of each song. Kaputt are skilled practitioners of emotional sleight of hand too, whilst each song on 'Carnage Hall' whirls by in frenzied fashion, burning bright with purpose, the group's lyrics pull you into people's lives, often damaged, often running low on options. 'Highlight' is an a-grade anthem doubling up as an eulogy for shipbuilding, 'Drinking Problems Continue' parts 1 and 2 are about Ullapool and generational holidays spent watching "the sun set on the ferry". "This could be your life" attest Kaputt on the deliriously labyrinthine 'Very Satisfied'. 'Carnage Hall' is an empathic album dealing with memory and place, but most importantly with people. "Swallow your thumbprints" demand the band in rampant stomper 'Hi, I'm The Wasp'. Maybe this is all the push we need to drop tired notions of belonging. This record asks us to clasp dear what makes us connect with each other over division. It's searching for an open window to slip through away from Carnage Hall and into the next parallel world, one where we have a chance. 'Carnage Hall' was recorded and mixed by Luigi Pasquini in Anchor Lane Studios in Glasgow in spring 2019, before being mastered this summer by John Hannon at No Studios. Caio Wheelhouse worked with the band on the artwork.) 18.00

MILES DAVIS - Kind Of Blue LP (ermitage - Kind of Blue is a studio album by American jazz trumpeter Miles Davis. It was recorded on March 2 and April 22, 1959, at Columbia's 30th Street Studio in New York City, and released on August 17 of that year by Columbia Records. The album features Davis's ensemble sextet consisting of saxophonists John Coltrane and Julian "Cannonball" Adderley, pianist Bill Evans, bassist Paul Chambers, and drummer Jimmy Cobb, with new band pianist Wynton Kelly appearing on one track in place of Evans. In part owing to Evans' joining the sextet during 1958, Davis followed up on the modal experimentation of Milestones by basing Kind of Blue entirely on modality, departing further from his earlier work's hard bop style of jazz. Kind of Blue has been regarded by many critics as the greatest jazz record, Davis's masterpiece, and one of the best albums of all time. Its influence on music, including jazz, rock, and classical genres, has led writers to also deem it one of the most influential albums ever recorded. The album was one of fifty recordings chosen in 2002 by the Library of Congress to be added to the National Recording Registry, and in 2003 it was ranked number 12 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. It was voted number 14 in Colin Larkin's All Time Top 1000 Albums. Though precise figures have been disputed, Kind Of Blue is often cited as the best-selling jazz record of all time.) 18.00

OAKHANDS - The Shadow of Your Guard Receding LP (TCM - Oakhands from munich, germany built their house right on the borders of Post-Hardcore, Emo and Indierock.

ORNETTE COLEMAN - Free Jazz: A Collective Improvisation LP (ermitage - Free Jazz: A Collective Improvisation is the sixth album by jazz saxophonist and composer Ornette Coleman, released on Atlantic Records in 1961, his fourth for the label. Its title established the name of the then-nascent free jazz movement. The recording session took place on December 21, 1960, at A&R Studios in New York City.) 18.00

PINEGROVE - Marigold LP (yellow vinyl) (Pinegrove’s new album begins with a breath and ends with a shimmering exhalation. In between is Marigold, an urgent, multivalent meditation—and an expanded take on the blend of alt-country, indie rock and cerebral humanism that’s inspired the band’s ardent fan community. Marigold marks their Rough Trade Records debut, offering what songwriter Evan Stephens Hall calls a “heart-first” perspective. Those familiar with Pinegrove will recognize signature elements of the band’s sound: literary yet conversational lyrics, geometrically interlocking guitars, the dynamic shifting shadows of rhythm and structure. But this effort marks the most spacious, bold, and well defined iteration of the project yet Formed in 2010 by childhood friends Evan and drummer Zack Levine, Pinegrove have released three previous albums — Everything So Far (2015), Cardinal (2016), and Skylight (2018) — to massive critical acclaim, garnering them a widespread and devoted listenership. They’ve described their sound as variously as introspective party music, or energetic music in the folk tradition; in any case they have combined catharsis and inventive structures with irrepressible melodies, resonant lyrics and emotive twang. Marigold finds the band expanding into the latter, spreading out over varying tempos and swelling pedal steel. But in surprising moments, the album can suddenly unfold into the band’s heaviest, most unbound offerings yet—a cavalier disregard of genre in favour of something honest and unique.) 22.00

SCOTT WALKER - The Childhood Of A Leader OST LP (4AD . A key and compelling component to Brady Corbet’s directorial debut, it is Walker’s first O.S.T. work since his remarkable score for Pola X in 1999. Partly inspired by Jean-Paul Sartre’s short story of the same name, The Childhood Of A Leader is a tense psychological drama tracing the formative years of a young boy and set against the backdrop of the 1919 Paris Peace Conference that led to the establishment of the Treaty of Versailles. Walker continues to work with long-term collaborators Peter Walsh (co-producer) and Mark Warman (musical director), with the latter conducting an orchestra comprised of 46 string players and 16 brass for the studio recording. Both Walsh and Warman were involved in the live film score performance of The Childhood Of A Leader, alongside a 74-strong orchestra, an event which closed the Rotterdam Film Festival in February this year.) 22.00

SWANS - leaving meaning DLP (mute - Michael Gira and an epic caravan of players (Ben Frost, The Necks, Baby Dee, Anna and Maria Von Hausswolff ++) head for the horizon in Swans’ 15th studio album. Gira’s vocals rasp with muzzled ennui, while the music keeps in tow, striking on widescreen themes of big country Americana with typically discerning production. “SWANS Leaving Meaning is the band’s fifteenth studio album, the follow up to 2016’s The Glowing Man. Written and produced by Michael Gira, the album features contributions from recent and former Swans, members of Angels of Light as well as Anna and Maria von Hausswolff, Ben Frost, The Necks, Baby Dee and Jennifer Gira. Michael Gira explains, "Leaving Meaning is the first Swans album to be released since I dissolved the lineup of musicians that constituted Swans from 2010 – 2017. Swans is now comprised of a revolving cast of musicians, selected for both their musical and personal character, chosen according to what I intuit best suits the atmosphere in which I’d like to see the songs I’ve written presented. In collaboration with me, the musicians, through their personality, skill and taste, contribute greatly to the arrangement of the material. They're all people whose work I admire and whose company I personally enjoy.“) 27.00

ROTTEN MIND - Rat City Dog Boy LP (lovely - Combining elements of 77’punk, post-punk and garage rock, Swedish indie- force Rotten Mind are back with their fourth full length album. With Rat City Dog Boy, Rotten Mind returns to their musical roots while embracing new influences to create an album that sounds both fresh and vintage, making the band appealing to old-school punkers as well as newfound lovers of the scene. Since the release of their critically acclaimed debut “I’m Alone Even With You”, Rotten Mind has played shows in Australia, Germany, France, Sweden, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, UK, USA, Spain and Czech Republic, and has been recognized in music magazines such as NME, Vice, Gaffa, and Hymn.) 22.00

TRUE MOON - II LP (purple vinyl) (lovely - Swedish quartet True Moon offers an enchanting blend of dark wave, post-punk, and alternative that eclipses musical trends. Formed by members of Grammy-nominated band Vånna Inget, Karolina Engdahl (vocals/bass) and Tommy Tift (guitar), they have created a charming darkness; together with Linus Segerstedt (guitar) and Fredrik Orevad (drums), they are a force to be reckoned with.) 22.00

TULIPS - Easy Games LP (contraszt - On their outstanding debut LP “Easy Games” TULIPS from Cologne (Germany) create a sound that perfectly fills the gap between dark wave and dreamy pop-punk: Spherical synthie sounds hit on straight basslines and drumming that brings up reminiscences of 80s Punk Sounds. The guitar melodies adds an melancholic note to it and is topped by the oustanding voice of Luna. Their demo from 2018 was already impressive and the band blew everyone’s mind who saw them performing live, but with the 7 songs of “Easy Games” they step into another sphere. If you like old stuff like Siouxsie and the Banshees and/or newer bands like The Organ you should definetly give TULIPS a listen.) 13.00

WAY THROUGH - Clapper Is Still LP + CD ('Clapper Is Still' is a bold record, concerned with the vast array of elegiac components Way Through have discovered locked within the English landscape. It peers into the overlapping histories that persist in these places and tries to reconcile how they are experienced together. "I retread the circle in this heavy field, sometimes it's hard, to tell it, from what's real", so begins the album, with "Dedham Vale", a track fascinated by the artificially managed aspect of the Stour Valley, made famous by Constable's paintings and as a result frozen in time via tourism. The song adopts the rhyme scheme and tenure of traditional folk song to further underline the troubled notions of authenticity in connection with heritage. "Stoke Poges" is a fizzing pool of pitched keyboards, and faltering samples, trapping a vocal focussed on the nature's ability to quietly regenerate alongside the evolving stories of this famed parish. "Imber & Tyneham" compares and contrasts two villages taken over and claimed by the MOD during WWII - one still actively used by the military for combat training on the Salisbury Plain, the other fast becoming a preserved time capsule in rural Dorset trapped throughout most of the year in a live firing zone. The song is a heady rush of staccato guitar and snare rattle, full of "unexploded debris", "corrugated rooftops" and "halted firing" as Tipton calls out. "Westonzoyland" and "Eyam" both see Titley pick up the vocal narrative. The former song detailing a journey across a Civil War battlefield, the latter a walk around the Derbyshire plague village of Eyam. "Westonzoyland" reels across time, imagining the battle raging amongst the "70's bungalows, chain-link fencing and pedestrian chicanes". A wash of violin skips across the track whilst Titley seeks parallels between a felt-tip memorial poster for a local teenager to the stone ediface commemorating the dead in the nearby fallow field.) 18.00
