Lumberton Trading Co | Fourth Dimension

logo_axe copyThe Krakow based suite of labels managed by Richard (Richo) Johnson has recently published its latest list of new and recent releases, rarities, trades and treasures. Richo, like so many on the margins of music and art, is experiencing real challenges in keeping his enterprise afloat in the present economic climate. To this end – and in view of Lumberton’s previous support for Human Greed – we are reproducing the list in full here, along with Richo’s heartfelt appeal that precedes the catalogue. We do this in the hope that we can persuade you to dip in and collect some goodies. It is a long, rich and compelling list of good, bad and ugly recordings, many of which are at extraordinarily knock-down prices.

The Painting of a Warning Sign…

 

All orders received here help to keep my activities going with Lumberton Trading Company, Fourth Dimension and Adverse Effect.  Of which, it must be stressed that many such labels are genuinely struggling to keep afloat these days. Mine included. We are currently trying to survive in turbulent times where few people have money to spare for the records they might like, plus it has to be stated the marketplace is completely and utterly saturated as well. This latter point in itself raises a personal dilemma for me in the sense that only my bloated ego and concomitant conviction in the work I’m doing (with the labels and otherwise) really drives it along. I believe in the artists who I work with, and I endorse their work completely and utterly. This is what binds me. And whilst it is only too easy for me to sit behind my fence and take pot shots at those labels/artists I feel are only contributing to the present problems, there are countless others ‘out there’, limping along in a similar manner to my own endeavours, more than deserving of all the support they can muster. To say otherwise whilst sinking into my armchair with a glass of wine would defeat the very reason I’ve long been involved in all of this and, for sure, it’s the reason I hope to continue…

However, unless this list (my first for a considerable while) generates enough orders to reach my (not unreachable) target, I believe Fourth Dimension and Lumberton Trading Company’s respective futures will move even closer to the precipice that’s now long been on the horizon. More blatantly, if this list does not generate a few hundred £s, I am going to have to seriously consider abandoning the labels, repaying those who’ve helped them along with subscriptions and so on, and leaving all such operations to a footnote in my own history of accomplishments.

This is the bottom line.

I want to try and turn things around, rather than admit defeat. However, this requires direct support from those of you reading this. You know, 20 orders of just £20 each would make a considerable difference to matters. 40 such orders would get things greased to a relatively healthy level. It is that simple. Pre-orders and subscriptions have always also helped matters as well. To that end, if anybody wants to take a subs for the 6 x MLPs/12”s and 12 x 7”s, I have ONE place available for each still (as I have just one copy of the Youngs/Fowler 7” remaining…and a last copy of the Glass Out MLP). Please write if interested.

In order to encourage the response I’m aiming for, you will see many bargains and deals tucked away here. Additionally, I am prone to throwing in freebie CDs, etc. with bigger orders. Why? Because I have operated my labels not to stare at boxes of unsold stock but to primarily promote the work of those who’ve had releases on them. And because, despite all of my veneer and occasional bouts of blustering, I am actually a generous person who’d rather spread those passions for music than let them simply gather dust in a cupboard’s corner.

Anyway, I hope you read this and that some of it resonates. I’m sure I speak for many others as well. And there is no way I’ll be trying to enrol for a fucking Kickstarter scheme, or whatever. I’d sooner die on my own sword than resort to such measures, to be perfectly frank. Enough of this for now, though…

I have tried to keep everything here at affordable (or, as I now say, ‘crisis-friendly’!) prices. A lot of this stock is generated by trades for my releases. I am fine with considering all such offers against my own back catalogue items, although please consider the areas of interest here. Equally, I welcome you passing these lists to others you feel will be interested in them.

I hope you do continue to support them, anyway. Thanks. All payments are perhaps best via Paypal (richo_j@hotmail.com) or via bank transfer (please email about this). I will also happily accept well-concealed UK, US or Euro cash and, indeed, UK cheques.  Finally, Polish customers can also write for a total in PLN.

On a separate note, my group Theme, following a few successful collaborative shows (and studio recording session) in September 2011 with Zsolt Sores and Faust’s Jean-herve Peron, will play in collaboration with them again in late March at the CoCArt Festival in Torun. Two other shows in Poland should happen around the same time, too. Meanwhile, the limited edition MLP release on LTCo  (see info below) is now out. This will be followed by a 7” (also featuring Jhp and Zsolt, plus Piotr Kurek), hopefully, later this year, if I can keep things going. Additionally, a Splintered CD collection will be going into production soon on a Finnish label. News next time.

Lastly, I am now able to help all artists/labels with a CD manufacturing service via my connections here in Poland (I have discounted accounts with two plants) . I am already working with several labels and artists and am happy to help others in this capacity. Please send me an email if interested in a quote.

Thank you,

Richo

NOTE ONE (AMENDED): Apply 10% discount to all orders of £25.00 and over (excl. postage).

NOTE TWO: I will always gladly consider small trades with other labels of a similar idiosyncratic disposition against my own FD or LTCo releases. I am always after new stock from the worlds of noise/improv/art-rock/electro-acoustic music/free jazz/post-punk/post-industrial/electronica/post-dancefloor/outsider music/etc. Generally, however, I do not trade against CDR or cassette releases, but will sometimes make concessions…

NOTE THREE: POLISH CUSTOMERS!!! When interested in placing an order, please write to me beforehand for a total in PLN that accounts for the national postage rates. Thank you.

NOTE FOUR: For those who are unsure about what to buy exactly, I am happy to accept a payment in return for a selection of items tailored to your tastes. This may seem a little odd, but I have had several such requests during recent times and the idea seems to work (plus guarantees some great value for money). To do this, please send a minimum of £30.00.

 

Postage Rates 

 

UK/EUROPE: First 7” or CD…£2.50, each extra £1.00/First 10”, 12” or LP…£5.00, each extra £2.00  NB: These prices include air mail from Poland.

NEW RELEASES ON LUMBERTON TRADING COMPANY

 

LUMB021  BRIAN CONNIFFE  LP.  Limited to 300, this will be the fourth entry in the series of six 12”/MLP releases. News next time. Meanwhile, here is a track from it, if interested: http://soundcloud.com/brian-conniffe/not-the-nigh

 

 LUMB020 ACID COBRA Petrified Minds CD. Another label-share release, this time by the artist Amaury Cambuzat’s own imprint, Acid Cobra, and USA-based Yesmissolga, bringing the latest collection of solo works by this Ulan Bator founder, Faust member and occasional collaborator with Jean-herve Peron and others. Fusing wiry yet strong songcraft with a whiff of psychedelia and fervent post-punk sensibilities, this album catches some of Amaury’s most focussed work so far. Out in late November 2012. £9.00   OUT NOW!

 

LUMB019  BIRDS BUILD NESTS UNDERGROUND So As CD.  Released in June 2012. NOTE: SOLD OUT directly from us, but still available via other sources, including the label it was joint-released with, Love Nest. Visit Discogs please.

 

LUMB018  THEME with ZSOLT SORES AHAD and JEAN-HERVE PERON Poison Is (Not) The Word. The third entry in the 12”/MLP subs series. In early September 2011, Theme, the Poland/UK-based group centred around Lumberton Trading Company’s very own Richard Johnson (ex-Splintered, Husk, etc.) and Stuart Carter (ex-Splintered, The Fields Of Hay, ex-Heroin, etc.), went into a Budapest studio with their good friends Zsolt Sörés and Jean-herve Peron (a.k.a. Art-Errorist of influential German group, Faust) for two days. Although some basic ideas had been worked on and discussed prior to this meeting, the main objective was to record a side-long piece of music that used one of these ideas as a starting point to what would otherwise essentially amount to a collaborative improvisation with Zsolt, plus further collaborative pieces for the other side of the record both involving also Jean-herve Peron and being completely of the moment.  The main piece, entitled ‘Poison Is (Not) The Word’, pays witness to Theme branching into territory probably closer to their work as Splintered (i.e., their Moraine LP from 1996, which featured Jim O’Rourke source material on one side). Stretching over 24 minutes in length, it remains anchored to Theme’s tendency for psychedelic drones and textures whilst Zsolt applies improvised electronics and viola to them and words are either chanted or spat out. A saxophone, added by Zsolt Varga, then completes the sprawling ‘brink-of-chaos’ feel perfectly. On the other side are two pieces also spanning over 20 minutes between them.  The first, ‘Baszd meg az apád!’ (which translates as ‘Fuck Your Father’ from Hungarian), begins misleadingly as a mass of atmospheric swirls, cavaquinho plucking, textures, psalterion, and sax until Jean-herve cuts in with some shouted vocals as effective as they are brief. The second, ‘Puszta Psycho’, is built around a tempered refrain of cavaquinho string picking led by Jean-herve then welded to subtle touches of hissing electronics, psalterion, space clatter, sax blasts (courtesy of Varga), subtle textural plumes, indiscernible knocking and scrunching sounds, Jean-herve’s vocals and buried chanting by Richard Johnson.  This MLP represents the first of two vinyl releases that document the time these artists all recorded and played live together over a period of 10 days. The second release should be a limited edition 7” on LTCo sister label, Fourth Dimension. Another tour will follow in Spring 2013. Limited to 400. Released in November 2012. £14.00  OUT NOW! A few copies can still be bought directly with bonus Theme sampler CDR and insert, too.

 

LUMB017  CINDYTALK with PHILIPPE PETIT A Question of Re-Entry 12″. Released in December 2011 in an edition of 300, this features two collaborative pieces. We have just had some returns. £11.00  NB: The 60 or so copies that had a bonus soundcard featuring an exclusive third collaboration have long sold out from us, so please do not ask.

 

LUMB015 HANNIS BROWN Severe Insomnia CD. The second album by this NYC-based composer/songwriter/improviser/electro-acoustic artist, whose eleven pieces here not only absorb the free jazz of his beloved Charles Mingus but also the micro-tonal orchestral work of Ligeti and Penderecki, and Edgar Varese’s forays into spatial electro-acoustic soundworlds. As with the debut, Oh Ee Ah, Hannis Brown’s music winds itself around those contours impossible to pin down to any one thing beyond that line between insanity and genius. Limited to 500, with the first 25 available as a special, hand-painted, glass packaged edition. Available now at £9.00 plus postage for the standard edition, or £16.00 for the special glass edition, plus postage. Please note that the glass edition will require an additional £3.00 postage to the normal rate. OUT NOW! Please note that 2 copies of the glass pack version still remain available, too…

 

LUMB006 NICK MOTT Almost Entirely of Nerves and Blood one-sided 7”/CDR package. SECOND EDITION.  Released in June 2012. We have just had some returns here, so this is temporarily once again available until they go. 150 were originally made available. £4.50 NOTE: Order the Sion Orgon 7″ on Fourth Dimension and receive this as well…


PLEASE NOTE THAT THE GLASS OUT 12″ is now SOLD OUT from LTCo directly. However, we do have some Michael Gira LPs, Human Greed CDs, Sion Orgon CDs, Thighpaulsandra CDs, Hannis Brown CDs and several other titles still available.

NEW, RECENT OR IMMINENT RELEASES

 ON FOURTH DIMENSION RECORDS

FDS85  TABATA MITSURU 7″. The fourth entry in the subs series by one of Japan’s most important and prolific artists. Details coming soon.

 

FDS84  MARTIN KUCHEN 7”.  Limited edition release representing the third entry in the subs series by this incredible improviser from Switzerland given to breathy and spacious acoustic sax treatments. Details coming soon.

 

FDS83 JFK La Bas (1987 – 1992) CD. “JFK is the project of British Rock and electronic musician Anthony Di Franco (Ramleh, Skullflower, Ethnic Acid). Originally active between 1987 and 1992 , JFK was conceived as an experimental rock band that could create: ‘a total music, absorbing all possibilities’ (Di Franco). This exclusive CD compiles rare and previously unreleased tracks, including the ‘Temple Of Set’/’ Sexodus’ 7” (previously released by Fourth Dimension in 1992). The JFK sound is a brain-melting clash of electronic rhythms, blazing guitar riffs, warped vocals and walls of feedback. To quote David Keenan of Volcanic Tongue: ‘JFK seem deformed by the first wave of avant rock coming out of the USA post-Sonic Youth but with an intense/ecstatic Industrial overload appeal that is uniquely brain-boggling… combinations of lightning strikes of bass, chainsaw fuzz, pugilistic a-temporal drum machine assaults and warped, urgent vocals – think Suicide, Chrome, the opening chords of Black Sabbath’s ‘Iron Man’, all reduced to insane gravities of electricity.’ In 2012 JFK re-activated to perform at the ‘Never Say When: 30 years of Broken Flag’ event in London and released a double LP retrospective ‘Teenage Fantasy 1987 – 88’ on Harbinger Sound. A new JFK album is scheduled for release on the UK label Turgid Animal.”

 This retrospective collection featuring nine cuts by Anthony di Franco, who has  formed a valuable pillar in some of the best music to have furrowed post-industrial music’s sprawl into the kind of distorto-heavy psychedelia where something entirely more menacing is the order of the day.  Co-released by Moscow’s Tiger On Box label, this makes for a timely and long overdue return to part of Fourth Dimension’s own background and will go into production very soon. To be released in an edition of 300 digipaks, this can be pre-ordered now. £9.00.

 

FDS82 SION ORGON Into the Dark 7”.  Representing the second entry in the new Fourth Dimension Singles Club (see details below – only a few subscriptions still available!), this is the latest release from the Welsh weaver of molten electronic sounds, avant-garde sensibilities and, indeed, even versatile pop/rock where surprises are the order of the day.  The two pieces here are the first from Thighpaulsandra/Coil affiliate, Orgon, for a few years. The flipside song, ‘Paper State’, features the late Sleazy, Thighpaulsandra himself and Seb Goldfinch.  Strictly limited to 250.  Released  in November 2012. £6.00 plus postage  OUT NOW!

 

FDLP81  BLISCAPPEN VAN MARIA Bliscepen LP.  Following several low run self-releases, this is Swiss group Bliscappen Van Maria’s debut album proper, comprising of two side-long pieces merging all from frazzled electronic swirl, drones, ethereal hums, guitars, percussion, banjo and the overall hue of the imaginary psychedelic western movie soundtrack these improvisations actually had in mind from their outset. Lavishly packaged in reversed card sleeve and limited to 500 only, this comes highly recommended to those who enjoyed the Zsolt Sores Ahad 2CD on Fourth Dimension/AudioTONG or for all lovers of interstellar minimalism, motorik rock and the likes of Circle, early Pink Floyd, Ash Ra Tempel, Taj Mahal Travellers, Neu! et al. A blissful debut by this group with roots in a number of others to have emanated from Switzerland’s ‘90s post-hardcore punk/noise/post-rock scene (Equus, Montevideo,  Forceed, Knut, etc.).  Released in June 2012. £13.75 plus postage  OUT NOW!

 

FDS80 RICHARD YOUNGS and LUKE FOWLER Yellow Gardens 7”. The first entry in Fourth Dimension’s Singles Club sees Richard Youngs making his first appearance on the label since his collaborations with Simon Wickham-Smith in the mid-1990s. This time, he collaborates with (Turner Prize-nominated) artist Luke Fowler on a couple of incredible synth jams based around modulations, atmospheric splurge and stuttering rhythms. Limited to 250 only. Released in June 2012. £6.00 plus postage   OUT NOW!  NOTE: QUITE LITERALLY ONE  COPY LEFT! ONCE GONE, NO MORE SUBSCRIPTIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED EITHER.

 

FDCD79 SASHASH ULZ Chtenie CD. Following two now impossible-to-get cassette album releases, Chtenie, meaning ‘reading’ in English, is set to be Russian artist Alexander Shevchenko’s debut on CD. Comprising improvised organ and guitar pieces with field recordings and a warm, natural and earthy feel that falls somewhere between a soundtrack to a lost ’60s mystery film and the notion of the lone busker playing mildly jaunty, yet generally disturbed, melodies to the mostly bemused townsfolk. Packaged in a fold-over card cover and limited to 300, this is in production now and will be out soon. Available to pre-order now. £9.00

 

FDCD78 MALEGYS Coming Events Cast Their Shadow Before CDR. Another release in Fourth Dimension’s present concern with encouraging new artists. This time, Malegys (pronounced Mahler Haze), a UK musician presently residing in Belgium, delivers Coming Events…, built around the type of shimmering twilight textures, tones and drones encapsulated perfectly by the title itself. Limited to 60 and packaged in special fold-over card cover, with an insert, and mastered by Sion Orgon. Originally scheduled to be a proper CD release on FD, this idea hit some problems outside our control and which, as such, have been partly resolved by this limited edition pro-CDR version that serves as a precursor to another CD on FD due next year. Released at the very end of December 2012. £6.00   NB: OUT NOW!

 

FDCD77 STEVE MARCIANO Binaural Plastic Recordings CD. Debut album by this presently Berlin-based artist from Spain whose work here comprises two lengthy and collaged ‘suites’ combining improvisation, electro-acoustic composition, jagged and jarred atmospherics, unsettled textures and the kinda broken or roughened melodies found on those early records by The Residents. Filling up almost the entire disc with music, this is not an especially ‘easy’ listen but fits in with one of Fourth Dimension’s strategies in documenting music that drifts in from those more perplexing corners by new or less established artists. Limited to 300 in digipak. Due to some unexpected problems beyond our control, this will now appear soon. Available to pre-order now. £9.00

 

FD2CD76 ZSOLT SORES AHAD Master’s Garden III (2007 – 2009): The Harmonian Blues 1 and 2  2CD. A few returns here, so temporarily available once again. Fantastic avant-psychedelia, electronics and concrete piece by Budapest’s finest. Released in February 2011. Gatefold sleeve. Limited to 300. £12.50

 

NOTE: If interested in subscribing to the 12 x 7”s that represent the Fourth Dimension Records Singles Club, please get in touch for the rates or visit the website (although only one more can be accepted). Other entries in the series include releases by Aidan Baker, Cindytalk, Eliot Bates (C93), Theme w/Jean-herve Peron and Zsolt Sores, irr. App. [ext.], Andrew Liles and more. Please note, however, that the subscriptions will cease once the Richard Youngs/Luke Fowler 7”s have sold out.

 

NOTE TWO: Other releases forthcoming on Fourth Dimension include CDs by Hand Of Stabs and Kakofonikt. News soon.

NOTE (PLEASE READ!): These three previously noted new FD CD/CDRs can be ordered together for a total of £20.00 (including postage to anywhere in the world) and represent the label’s concern with promoting new artists. Wholesale rates also available on request.

 

As noted, FDS80 sees the start of the Fourth Dimension Singles Club, which began in June 2012. This is dedicated to 12 x limited edition 7” records by the following artists: Richard Youngs and Luke Fowler, Sion Orgon, Martin Küchen, Hannis Brown, Thighpaulsandra,  Zenial, Tabata Mitsuru, Circle (remixed by Andrew Liles), Eliot Bates (Current 93), Theme (with Jean-herve Peron, Zsolt Sores and Piotr Kurek), irr. App. [ext.] and Aidan Baker.  Each release will be limited to between 250 and 400, depending on the artist, and will retail individually for around £5.50 (plus postage). However, as with the 12” series on LTCo, direct support is wholly encouraged by virtue of subscribers. In order for this series to work,  a simple yet modest target of thirty to forty subscribers is required. These will play an important role in getting these records into production and will be rewarded accordingly with something EXCLUSIVE to them (hopefully a special box of some kind to house all of the 7”s).  The first two releases in the series are by Richard Youngs and Luke Fowler and Sion Orgon. The latter also includes a contribution by the late Peter ’Sleazy’ Christopherson. Because this series might take almost 24 or so months  to completely realise, there is a choice of two ways to subscribe, as follows:

 

FULL SUBSCRIPTION (12 x 7”s) = £50.00 (UK/EU)/£65.00 (ROW)

HALF PAYMENT OPTION (6 x 7”s) = £35.00 (UK/EU)/£40.00 (ROW)

NB: The latter option means that the outstanding balance of either £15.00 (UK/EU) or £25.00 (ROW) must be paid anytime up to the receipt of the sixth 7” in order to receive the remaining six entries.

 

ORDERS FOR THIS SERIES TAKEN NOW! Note: Add £5.00 to the order and choose ANY available back catalogue or new CD title from either Fourth Dimension or Lumberton Trading Company. This includes postage worldwide.

 

Other releases scheduled for Fourth Dimension include the debut CD albums proper by Hand of Stabs and Kakofonikt. News soon.

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Pre-orders thoroughly welcome. Wholesale enquiries likewise. Wholesale enquiries encompass a minimum of five units (any combination of titles) and, for the first one or two orders, are entirely based on pre-payments.  Please get in touch regarding what you are interested in. Subscribers to the series of 6 MLP/12” releases and FD Singles Club will also receive bonuses for their support.

 

Payment can be made via PayPal to: richo_j@hotmail.com

 

Cash/UK cheques and bank transfers also accepted. Write for details.

 

RELAUNCH OF ADVERSE EFFECT MAGAZINE

Magazine + Edward Ka-Spel 7” due early 2013

Following several years since the last edition of Adverse Effect magazine was published (in 2005, in fact), it has been decided that the time is now right to do another one. In the years since AE (Volume III.) Number 2 appeared, of course, the forum has been survived by both a blog and a space on the FD website, mostly given to reviews, but whilst this will remain, it would be good to have another magazine out that will not only be dedicated, once again, to music and other areas of interest from culture’s furthest corners but also bring with it an exclusive LTCo 7” release by Edward Ka-Spel. The magazine will comprise of interviews with Edward Ka-Spel, Russian independent filmmaker Andrey Iskanov and Turkish improviser/composer Erdem Helvacioglu, a discussion about horror films with Nick Mott, Michael Begg on records he may or may not be able to live without, fiction by Mark John Ramsden, a beginner’s guide to Polish Cinema, various columns, and an extensive reviews section.  If you are interested in reserving ad space in the magazine, please get in touch for more details. The mag/7” package will be limited to 350, with the first 100 being available directly and including a bonus A4 print. Adverse Effect has international distribution guaranteed and looks poised to help fill the vast and gaping chasm presently created by virtual media.  The retail price is set at £12.50. Watch this space for more details.

 

NB: Advertising space can also be reserved. Review material (music, books, films) also thoroughly welcome. More writers also welcome! Please note, however, that no unsolicited material will be published.

2.13 PM Anus Dei CD

@C 0º-100º CD

ISHAI ADAR Beaufort – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack CD

Album from 2007 by this Israeli artist, here with a mostly electronic score to the film Beaufort that compares with some of Artemiy Artemiev’s work.Vaguely Tangerine Dream-esque timbres converge with contemporary post-dancefloor sensibilities.

ANOTHER HEADACHE Pushing the Envelope MCD

Four cuts, spanning almost 20 minutes, by this recently revived UK project. “The musical project, Another Headache, was started in 1989 by David Bourgoin. Primarily influenced by the likes of Throbbing Gristle, Zoviet France and early Sonic Youth, it soon developed a sound of its own that blended elements of Krautrock, Industrial music and Minimalism to create unique and captivating soundscapes. Early releases were included on a number of cassette compilation albums and the tracks soon attracted good reviews. Encouraged by this, the cassette album “Nothing Definite” followed, as did a split 7″ with dROME. A further CD compilation appearance and some soundtrack work for a film by Richard Baylor led to a double 7″ being released by Dirter Promotions. The tracks demonstrated that Another Headache had evolved to new levels of sound exploration and again attracted good press. Further tracks were written and recorded utilising speech samples, found sound and more regular instrumentation as Another Headache explored new avenues in which to experiment with sound collage…” Released 2005. Thisco, Portugal. £4.00

 

ARBEIT/BEAUCHAMP/PALUMBO Torino 012010 2CD

Five three-way studio collaborations on the first disc, plus a lengthy live piece on the second. Molten electronics, psycho-ambience and other such abstract pools. Nice album. Released  in 2011. Tourette, USA. £9.00

Limited edition of 500 copies. Comes in oversized gatefold jacket. Quasi-Pop, Ukraine, £8.00

 

AUBE Reworks Stefano Gentile CD

Shimmering tones, loops and twilight atmospherics from Japan’s Aube, sourcing material originally supplied by Stefano Gentile. Silentes, Italy. £9.00

 

AUTHOR & PUNISHER Drone Machines CD

“By squelching, triggering, amputating, stretching and tormenting sounds achieved from the execution of heavy machinery into vivid instruments, Tristan Shone, the man behind Author & Punisher, offers “Drone Machines”, One of thee most eviscerated and innovating albums to come out in years. Nonetheless, “Drone Machines” is beyond avant-garde, in that exciting sense that it brings together slow-paced DOOM whips, modern technology, an eerie flood of vile drones and heavy machinery in a whole new perspective. It’s also an album that is reviving the INDUSTRIAL METAL genre from its ashes and rephrasing the primeval passion for that classic bestial drum pound with rancid low end and sonic-metallic scraping – and this unblemished contrast – between concrete innovation and the reinvigoration of lost sounds, is exactly what makes “Drone Machines” such an important, groundbreaking and iconic album. For years to come. 

Recommended if you like Godflesh, HALO, Swans, Human Queena Orchestra, Dead World, Grave in the Sky, Khanate, Black Mayonnaise, Caspar Br–tzmann Massaker, Trust Obey etc.” Released 2010, HCB Recordings, Israel.  £8.00

 

BAND OF PAIN Que Amiga? CD

“This is the fifth album proper from England’s finest, (with)  dark soundtracks of the highest calibre – intense passages and bleak anthems in a constant flux, dark emotions and neo-classical edged intensity. Possibly the finest work from Band Of Pain to date…” (label blurb). Cold Spring Records. £6.00

 

BAND OF PAIN Sacred Flesh CD

Reissue of Steve Pittis’ OST from Nigel Wingrove’s film of the same name, from 2000. Here in revised packaging featuring ‘banned’ stills in the booklet. Cold Spring. £8.00

 

BARBARA A Blessing from the Angel of Death CD

“The recording quality is top notch, in an overblown, loud as fuck blowout, as BARBARA tears through 9 songs of harsh black metal / prog punk brutality, with a crushing bass guitar attack, crusty witch vocals, and fast paced drumming. Lots of weird math-y breaks amongst jazzy tornado thrash and slow, sludgy dirges…” Released 2007. Heart & Crossbone, Israel. £5.00

 

BARBARA Peger CD

Juxtaposing noise-core, grind and doom, with strong hints of black metal, it’s hard to accept the fact that Barbara’s instrumental line-up is comprised only by a drummer (David OPP A.K.A Cadaver Eyes) and a bass player (Re-em H), both of them also deliver the screams and perverse whispers on their first album in four years, a hectic and mindless anti-musical rupture. For fans of Today Is the Day, VOG, Truman’s Water, Burmese, Lightning Bolt and Pig Destroyer.” Released 2008. Heart & Crossbone Records, Israel. £5.00

BARDOSENETICCUBE Naegleria Fowlery CD

“This strange and extremely varied disc opens with a track which whirls in and out of The Caretaker’s ‘Haunted Ballroom’-style samples with piercing electronics. Moving onwards we encounter dense rhythmic industrial pieces and experimental electronics – all the while chasing the thread of eccentric samples and searing white noise” (Cold Spring Records). Limited to just 300 hand-numbered copies in an outsized foldout package. Interesting release from this Russian group, from 2007. Blade Records, Italy. £6.00

BFFFTH Two Phases of Emanation of Light LP

“Markos Zografos’s complete composition for music and text contains a total of four phases; Heard Worse’s LP contains the third and fourth. It’s a noise drone work, made of slow building intensity, inspired by Xenakis, one in which “time stops [and e]verything disappears except for the sensation of infinity….” Limited edition LP from this Australian composer, in pasted-on/recycled cover. Released in 2010. Heard Worse Records, Australia. £11.00

BIG CITY ORCHESTRA Eerily CD

Album from 2009 by this group who’ve been active since the late 1970s and, over the subsequent years, responsible for an enormous body of work stemming from lo-fi tape/electronic manipulations to droneworks, electro-acoustic pieces, sonic fuckery that delves into unnameable places, and far more besides. The six pieces here even include Gong’s Daevid Allen on them. Limited to 300 in oversize (7” style) screen-printed sleeve. EE Tapes, Belgium. £8.00

 

BIRDS BUILD NESTS UNDERGROUND/MCIAA Gramofonu = Voice of the Universe LP

BIRD’S BUILD NESTS UNDERGROUND/RUINU  Bohnice, Babi Leto, Scena Poli5 CD

BLACK FACTION Reworked CD

Following the release of this dark electronica Polish group’s Internal Dissident album on Soleilmoon Recordings, this album was originally intended to gather a few remixes by selected artists before blossoming into the entirely different project it is here. Reworked comprises remixes by John Hudak, Rapoon, Universal Delux, Sutekh, etc. and Black Faction themselves which are then reconstructed and tweaked to create a natural flow. Filmic, brooding and sustained brilliantly by neat instrumental flourishes, surprising tangents & serpentine rhythms, this is a great introduction to Black Faction’s clearly oblique world. Vivo, Poland. £4.00

 

BOETTCHER/HUBWEBER Schnack LP

Trombone and electronics collab improvisations by these two artists, spread over ten pieces. Nice record. Released in 2005 in an edition of 300 on heavy vinyl. Anthropometrics, Germany. £7.50

KARL BöSMANN Euphoria Mitte CD

New album by this electronics artist whose work draws from the same pools as AMM, Organum, NWW and Xenakis. “With the whole bunch of very limited edition releases on such labels as Tosom, Domestic Violence Recordings, Verato Project and the luxurious LP made by Youdonthavetocallitmusic, the name of German musician Karl Bösmann [has been] emerging since 2003. This is his second real CD after Unton (2005, Badbeatz Records) and includes several new compositions, showing the maturity and intensity of his prolific talent.” Released 2010. Monochrome Vision, Russia. £8.00

Album from 2005 by this Norwegian given to workouts between the subtle and more abrasive in a twilight setting of improvised murmur, static hum and menacing electronic glare. Occasional broken rhythms help lend the proceedings dynamics. Quasi Pop, Ukraine. £8.00

 

HANNIS BROWN Oh Ah Ee CD

Fantastic debut album by a US artist whose compositions soak up all from jazz, improvisation, avant-rock and those regions likewise sometimes explored by contemporary outsider music, yet without betraying a direct and almost accessible edge capable of pushing this beyond the usual confines. Charles Mingus, Pendericki, Dirty Projectors and Elliot Smith are all cited as representing certain parallels on the information sheet, but Oh Ah Ee possesses an appeal that far outreaches this combination. Recommended. Self-released in 2010. £8.00

 

BRUME The Sun CD

Unofficial/unauthorised release of this album by France’s fantastic Christian Renou, from 2008. Due to a small error in the mastering of this disc that affects the music, Christian was not happy with the result but the label have made the albums available regardless. In nice oversized 7” sleeve. Old Europa Café, Italy. £8.00

 

BRUME After the Battle (A Chronicle on the Joy of Life) CD

On this album, from 2009, Christian Renou has reactivated his old moniker, following several years of recording under his own name. Contains nine cuts utilising voice, metal, tapes and effects. Packaged in 7”-type sleeve with an insert and limited to 300. EE Tapes, Belgium. £9.00

BUGSKULL & THE BIG WHITE CLOUD eponymous CD

“Following countless releases over the last ten or so years and a spell of silence during the past three, USA’s Bugskull have become the solo endeavour of founder Sean Byrne, who here collabs with The Big White Cloud (the solo pursuit of pal, Phil Quistlund) to perfectly comfortable effect. Throughout most of the six pieces (refreshingly kept to under 36 mins. max playing time – a winning factor alone from where I’m sittin’), there’re some spacey grooves binding an array of crisp electronics, gtr strum, lo-fi crackle and alien murmur that, together, might well make for average ingredients these days but are magically teased into shapes truly worth revisiting. After working themselves into a vaguely Canned lather, Sean and Phil spit oblique digital globs at each other over some teased sax swells, foreboding drones and the always welcome thump of a death beat during the final cut, ‘weedlebug Jamboree’ (the title itself being the only letdown). It all gels with a sense of purpose and, having only paid Bugskull a little attention previously, I’m now beginning to believe it has been unjust.” (from Adverse Effect magazine). Scratch, Canada. £6.00

BURMESE/CADAVER EYES split CD

“Like demented twins in crime, Burmese (tUMULt / Load Records) & Cadaver Eyes rephrase Doom, Grindcore and Power Electronics by using an agonizing mechanism of plain brutal aesthetics, ascending these genres to a higher level of cognitive surge. This split CD is difficult and pungent, a warm spew in the face and an endless buzz in the eardrum that fiercely occupies the brain and treats the grey cells as if they were an ashtray. A crude awakening and a classic case of ponderous self indulgence” (label blurb). Released 2007. Heart & Crossbone, Israel. £5.00

 

CAPE FEAR Winds of the Dead Air LP

In 1997, Laurent Perrier puts an end to the Nox experience, one of the major bands of the French industrial rock scene, to launch a new solo project, Cape Fear, with which he delivers a first album (Drift towards the heat), combining breakbeat, sampling and metal guitars. Twelve years later, Cape Fear is back with a second album, Winds of the Dead Air. Five long titles, dark and strangely hypnotic, where guitars and metal riffs literally crash on a groovy bass/drum rythmic line. The sequencers and the unique sound of the Moog synthesizer give to this record some kind of a ambient ‘70s flavour, while the quality and intensity of the compositions will remind the listener of Chrome, King Crimson, Neurosis and This Heat.” Released 2010 and limited to 300. Sound On Probation, France. £8.00

 

ERIC LA CASA W2 (1998 – 2008) 2CD

D’INCISE Lethargie & Autres Animaux Rugeux CD

“D’incise is a member of the Audioactivity, music & visual collective founded in 2000 in Geneva (CH). In 2002 he starded to produce different kinds of electronic music, from dub to electronica, dangerously sliding to the more experimental ways of electroacoustic. His world is made with sound fractures, nevralgic crepitations, melancolic atmospheres and a non-dissimulated fascination for rust and faded rhythms. ‘Lethargie…’, his newest CD, is not far from described above. A mixture of field recordings, objects and distant melancholy makes it a very intense – and rewarding -sound experience.”  Released in 2010 in oversized card packaging. AudioTONG, Poland. £8.00

DARA eponymous one-sided LP

DM&P Insular Dwarfism CD

Noise-drivem free jazz/improv by this Krakow-based trio.“Insular Dwarfism: The process whereby animals living on small islands or in other environments with constrained gene pools reduce in size over time through a process of natural selection.

When we first started playing together five years ago, there was a very modest local improvised music scene in Kraków and extremely few clubs or venues were prepared to support or encourage this kind of music. Faced with a situation in which opportunities to exchange ideas with like-minded musicians were severely limited, we were forced to withdraw into ourselves, hone down our extravagant ideas and rein in our reckless impulses in a somewhat vain attempt to pin down and maintain a vestige of necessary control over what made our music valuable or different without sacrificing the sense of adventure and spontaneity that lay at its core. The degree to which we have managed to achieve this alternately frustrating and rewarding task is arguable, but the moments when everything goes right more than make up for those when we miss the boat and everything crumbles into oblivion.”Released 2011. AudioTONG, Poland. £8.00

 

DMDN Agonistes 1 and 2 CD

Two lengthy electronic noise pieces by the Dutch project. Originally released on a cassette in 1994 by Japan’s G.R.O.S.S. label. Reissued here in an edition of 200 in 2011. Industrial Recollections, Finland. £8.50

DMT Selected Funbient Works 1 – 4 2CD

Dmitriy Tolmatskiy (1970-2009) was a journalist and musician from the city of Saratov (south of Russia), one of the first popularizers of the alternative intellectual culture and particularly industrial music in post-Soviet Russia. He was the creator of the RWCDAX website which had certain influence on the mindset of many modern personalities of Russian post-industrial art. The musical project DMT was established in 1995 and released by the end of the ‘90s several limited-edition cassette albums, lapsing afterwards into silence for a while. In the mid-00s the project was revived, had some successful live gigs and recorded a lot of new material, part of which is presented on this double-CD, ‘Selected Funbient Works 1-4’. Plans of this release existed for a long time but unfortunately were not implemented while the author was alive. His life cut short in the autumn of 2009. And now by joint efforts of several Russian labels (namely KultFront, Zhelezobeton, Aquarellist and Monochrome Vision), this release has become available for those interested. The album vividly displays the complex music world of DMT, which like everything innovative exists on the crossing of several musical styles and directions: from dark-ambient and industrial noise sketches to technoid rhythmics and pure sonic experiments.” Zhelezobeton/Kultfront, Russia. £7.00

BERNARD DONZEL-GARGAND Still to be a Storyteller CD

Collection of eight tracks by this musique-concrete artist, released 2009. Monochrome Vision, Russia. £8.00

THE ELECTRIC BIRDS Panorama LP

Here, Martinez pushes his interest in Chain Reaction/Basic Channel-type minimal dubtronica to the fore. Gently swaying rhythms, vacillating textures, minimalistic keys and echo chamber undercurrents combine to an effect as wonderful as it is successful in pushing the folds of its motivating forces into new shapes. Inc.us, USA. £7.00

 

EL PASO HOT BUTTON Keep Your EYES Quiet CD

Fourth album by this US artist who blends buoyant pop with an art-rock sensibility, a little garage noise, a dose of balladeering and even some mild electronic shading. Recalls Sonic Youth at times, but there’s more to it than this. Released in 2009. Little Mafia, USA. £7.00

ESO STEEL eponymous CD

Album from a number of years ago by a New Zealand artist whose previous releases were all on ltd edition polycarbonate lathe cuts but, in turn, warrants further investigation than that notion may suggest to the more ‘discerning’ ear.

FIRE IN THE HEAD Confessions of a Narcissist CD

2010 released album by this group founded by the prolific Michael Page (Sky Burial), here delivering thirteen pieces that choke on electronic noise yet aim for a more abstract or even psychedelic experience where sounds collide and explode from each other like shards of glass.

RAFAEL FLORES Nubes, Cometas, Romeros y Orugas CD

“First official CD album of Rafael Flores, who hails from the depth(s) of (the) Spanish noise underground scene (and is) known for his early works released under (the) Comando Bruno moniker. This compilation presents the latest decade of his sound experimentation, and shows quite diverse sides of his creative efforts, which ranges from collaged field recordings to noise ambient loops, from rhythmic structures to hypnotic electronic passages.” Monochrome Vision, Russia. £6.00

FREIBAND Replicas CD

The Freiband project started almost by accident: I had a digital 8-track machine at home and one could manually search for sounds with a jog dial, which produced an extraordinary scratching sound. I was reminded of Asmus Tietchens’ ‘Daseinsverfehlung’, which he made with analogue tape being pulled out of a reel-to-reel recorder. He recorded these scratchings and made a CD with thirteen tracks out of that. I always liked that process, and did something similar for the Freiband project, which I originally thought to be an one-off project. My subsequent first Freiband CD ‘Microbes’ was made along those methods of ‘scratching’. Many people think it’s my first laptop work, but in fact it’s my last analogue work. When I decided to continue as Freiband as a vehicle for all my solo studio work, I had the wish to take the original Tietchens CD and do a rework of that. Taking sounds from just the first track, make a new music piece with exactly the same length as the original first track, and to repeat this for every new piece. It took some time to complete this but in peace, in 2007, in Tokyo, I reached the final version, which is ‘Replicas’. Dedicated to Asmus Tietchens, well, obviously”  (from Frans de Waard’s sleevenotes). Released 2007. Monochrome Vision, Russia. £8.00

GEM IN EYE (DAME DARCY) Time Travellers 7″

Notable as the creator of the Edward Gorey-esque art comic, Meatcake, Dame Darcy has also built herself an impressive reputation for playing obscure songs on her banjo. Her collaborators include the disgracefully wonderful Lisa Suckdog and filmmaker Lisa Hammer. For her new project Gem In Eye she’s teamed up with Victor Cretella to create as big a musical diversion from her accepted sound as possible. Drum machines, guitars, boopy-doopy lyrics. Four tracks of fine, ridiculous psychodrama. Ir-Ar Records. £3.00

Release from 2004 by the US electronic noise artist, with two cuts of this nature each side. Dielectric Records, USA. £4.50

FRANK GINGELEIT Lost in the Deep Blue CD

“Frank’s fourth album creates an electronic and atmospheric feel, even though the entire album was recorded using guitar synthesizer and electric guitar. Lots of variety here, including avant-psychedelic stylings, wah’d jamming Bluesy guitar, tribal rhythms and a generally trippy vibe, rough edged sonic aggression like King Crimson gone fusion in space, and much more.” From 2005. Fünfundvierzig, Germany. £7.00

 

GODS & QUEENS  eponymous LP + CD

Album from 2008 by this group who blend raging hardcore punk, noise-guitar splurge and more melodic songs that could almost delve into post-rock territory if not for an altogether murky production that vaguely recalls early Noiseville Records releases. All the songs are untitled and I personally know very little about this group beyond the music itself that’s on offer here. Nice package, though, with the the marbled light purple vinyl, gatefold sleeve and the CD mounted inside. 1000 were pressed in total, but this particular edition arrived limited to 425. Robotic Empire, USA. £11.00

PAWEL GRABOWSKI Cirr’s Song 7”

Released in 2004 in an edition of 350, this catches the atmospheric electronics artist delivering two drone pieces. Just found these at the back of a stack of records, completely untouched since, presumably, they arrived here shortly after being released. Includes insert. Drone Records, Germany. £3.50

 

GRAVE IN THE SKY Cutlery Hits China CD

“The Sludge-core scene is injected with a poison: Horror movies DVD subtitles are being gargled and forced into song lyrics, backed up by heavy poundings and black metallic space-rock dirges, on this new release from Rani Zager (Poochlatz /Lietterschpich), Maor Appelbaum (Poochlatz/Sleepless/Screening) and Matan Shmuelly (Armilos).

JEAN-LUC GUIONNET Non-Organic Bias 2CD

Released in 2009, this two disc set comprises three lengthy pieces whose titles are in the wrong order on the cover but are fantastic regardless. “Two facts determined the compositional process of non-organic bias :1 – the title itself, 2 – the sound sources used for the piece were restricted to various recordings I made of the organ. Other than the play of words that sum up many of my main points of interests with the organ (organ – organum – organism – organic – etc.), the title, bias, means prejudice, focussing on, interest in, systematic distortion, irregular shape, oblique course, predisposition, partiality, from the french biais, all of them signifiing for me a sort of base of living organism. Inclinations going through material, warped matter, a form full of inner slopes, a material that bends… non-organic bias : to rediscover the bias of a sound machine (the organ) and then, keeping the same concerns, following up these bias’ up until the membrane of the speaker, passing through the whole electroacoustic network. To compose with the technical issues, to be on the hunt for forms and artefacts that the techniques produce, when, following its own tendancies (bias), it is brought to its own limit : border effects, resonances, natural saturations, … all artefacts that sign the acoustic, analogic, digital, process…To compose with the tendancies of the non-organic, and with the tendancies toward the non-organic : these are the 2 possible meanings of non-organic bias.”  (from Guionnet’s own notes). Herbal International, Malaysia. £11.00

 

JEAN-LUC GUIONNET/ERIC LA CASA/PHILIP SAMARTZIS Soleil D’Artifice CD

Ten songs by Laurent Perrier and Bernard Ducayron, with lyrics by Samia Doukali & Anouk Azar.  From 2000, this album comes from the prolific Perrier (Zonk’t) and melds trip-hop rhythms with darker atmospherics, subtle jazz strokes, electronica and other such post-dancefloor inflections, although shades of late Terminal Cheesecake creep in next to the Massive Attack references. Includes a very brief Bjork guest appearance. Sound On Probation, France. £6.00

 

HEAL Starting Back CD

Second album from this venture of Laurent Perrier’s, this time emphasising the jazz on the debut plus going towards more psychedelic realms in electronica. From 2007. Sound On Probation, France. £6.00

H.H.T.P. & PORTABLEPALACE Cavitation CD

“The interaction between computer science technology and freeform musical creative process becomes a central point in this international collaboration of three artists from Belarus and USA. The abstract soundscapes are obscured by intricate structures, acoustic phenomena and electronic effects, it’s going to infinity and never repeat itself. The finest harmony of soundfield is credited to the principles of intuitive simulation, realised through the system of computer-aided instruments. Limited edition of 500 copies.” Monochrome Vision, Russia. £7.50

HOLLOWING + MAOR APPELBAUM Collaborating Torture CD

“’Collaborating Torture’ is one of the last known recordings made by Matt Gibney a.k.a. Hollowing, who died in January 2006. Gibney, a member of Soihadtoshoothim who was also running the important Rectrix label and mail-order, was joined here by the prolific Maor Appelbaum (Grave in the Sky, Poochaltz and Maurizio Bianchi, to name a few) to create a brooding and massive 54 minutes track of dark pitch-black ambient of hypnagogic swirls and industrialized drones. Sometimes subtle, yet mostly haunted and delirious, this is highly recommended if you like Wilt, Murderous Vision, Brighter Death Now, Aidan Baker, Z’ev, Daniel Menche, The Caretaker and John Duncan” (from label blurb). Released 2007. Heart & Crossbone, Israel. £5.00

 

HOROLOGIUM Le Cartoline Perse CD

Collection of various unreleased and rare compilation tracks by this long existing underground Polish venture.

I AM ABOVE ON THE LEFT Astro CD

“The band’s third album has grown out of a number of changes and new approaches which Alexey Taroutz (guitar, vox, percussion, bass), Artem Galkin (bass, vox, guitar, percussion) and Pavel Eremeev (drums, devices, feedbacks) wanted to pursue. IAAOTL found themselves in that camp of the artists who applied Edgard Varese’s principles of “organized sound” to rock music, and generalized their experience to the Astro album. “10 untitled songs” are not so much songs as minimalist constructions with an emphasis on timbre and rhythm, or canvases upon which the three splatter some colors (arguably not as bright as on the album artwork) to create quite murky images. These are not monotonous: some passages hover on heavy dissonant abyss, others insert haunting texture exercises and tribal pulses, or flow with the perfect serenity. Some of the tracks may seem at first like underdeveloped sketches, but take them with a bit more concentration and the music turns out memorable even without the structure most ears have come to expect. IAAOTL’s Astro is quite unlike anything that preceded it: captivating and inventive rethinking of math-rock, experimental, chamber and avant-rock. Deconstructionist fans will marvel at this unorthodox experience. (10 tracks – 40 min.)” Released in 2010. R.A.I.G., Russia. £9.00

 

IIBIIS ROOGE eponymous LP

“Iibiis Rooge is the new superastral duo team bringing together the mysterious High Wolf (Not Not Fun Records, Winged Sun) with the seminal talents of Mr. Neil Campbell, better known these days as Astral Social Club (Fat Cat, VHF, Qbico, Important, Textile, Bottrop-Boy and countless other labels around the globe) and (ex-) member of Vibracathedral Orchestra, A-Band, and other obscure/legendary outfits. The new self-titled LP is the debut album of the band (don’t call it “project”) combining modern psychedelic High Wolf jams with the fucked up yet refined electronics and techno-infused beat choppery of the Astral Social Club – the result being a lot more then you might have expected from the two, transcending their combined talents into a multicoloured supernova. The strength of the album is an unexpected pop sensibility and airiness, while still being tighter and more consolidated than their regular solo outfits. Even the noisier elements are embedded in loose song structures with a carnivalesque air dominating the whole atmosphere. While the duo’s solo outings are often camouflaging any melodies in oodles of electronic noises or lo-fi psych jams and hiss this is a fairly different affair with simple melodic textures always dominating the four tracks. The defibration of structures is still apparent but the music is constantly pulling itself together again. Where the Astral Social Club is sometimes willingly losing himself in electronic soundscapes and the High Wolf’s short & sketchy songs are rarely fully formulated by nature, all the positive aspects of their respective works are combined and complemented in Iibiis Rooge. These gentlemen are the perfect match. A visible proof that (musical) online dating can be a highly prosperous activity.” Released in 2010. Dekorder, Germany. £9.00

 

INCAPACITANTS Mon, Ma? Mon!!! CD

New album from the longstanding masters of electronic noise, Japanese-style. Released in 2012. Triangle, Russia. £8.00

 

IRIKARAH Endstation Steinbruch CD

Reissue of an extremely limited cassette (20 copies), originally published by Andreas Arndt’s own label Keine Zeit Recordings in 1996. Comprises six tracks of post-industrial textures/noise in special oversized sleeve, limited to 300 numbered copies. Released in 2007. Blade Records, Italy. £6.00

IVAN SAMSHIT Essential Shit CD

Nineteen tracks and over 75 mins running time. “The very first (and still remains the best) electro-pop Ukrainian group Ivan Samshit has recorded 12 (or even more) albums in period from 1987 to 1997, but very few of them was released on cassettes in Ukraine and Germany in 90s. ‘Essential Shit’ is a compilation of the best tracks from these neglected recordings, that are available on CD for the first time ever! 19 tracks have been re-recorded directly from original pre-history master-cassettes and reel-tapes and carefully re-mastered using both modern digital and vintage analogue restoration equipment. In result, the sound of this CD is very similar to the tape sources — warm, deep, hissing and a bit raw in it’s primal beauty. There are a lot of the well-known real ‘pop-hits’ presented on CD and some more experimetal tracks as well” (label blurb). Very nice album that sucks on electro-pop, experimental electronics and more in a very DIY-spirited environment. Limited to 500. Quasi Pop, Ukraine. £9.00

I:WOUND Ram Nam Satya Hai CD

Found more copies of this recently. Collaged Asian sounds, textures, mutated beats and field recordings by German, Sascha Karminski. Stein Sein, Germany. £7.00

JAZKAMER Balls the Size of Texas Liver the Size of Brazil CD

Recent album from two of Norway’s bigger names on the underground noise circuit, Lasse Marhaug and John Hegre, proffering heavily treated guitar workouts, drones, tones and carefully handled feedback. More mild and atmospheric than some of their other work under the forever metamorphosising Jaz(z)kam(m)er moniker, but still pretty volcanic in places. Released in 2007. Purple Soil, Czech Republic. £8.00

 

JESUS ON MARS eponymous CD

Neat album of babbling electronics, post-industrial textures and brooding atmospherics by Thomas Shrubsole, a UK artist whose work straddles those lines between contemporary electronic sounds and the areas covered once by certain ‘70s pioneers (generally from Germany). A nice listen, though. Released in 2012. Dissolving. £8.00

 

JUNE11 Matter Is Alive CD

Debut album from late 2008 by this French outfit who cavort between avant-pop, electronica and minimalism. The opener, a cover of Eno/Moebius/Roedelius’ ‘By the River’, and a tribute track to Harold Budd (simply entitled ‘Harold Budd’) probably indicate pretty much where they’re coming from.  EE Tapes, Belgium. £8.00

 

K11/PIETRO RIPERBELLI & PHILIPPE PETIT The Haunting Triptych CD

“The Haunting Triptych is an even denser piece of work. Over the course of its three tracks, ranging from just under fourteen to just over eighteen minutes, the pair carve extremely rich progressive dark ambient drones and textured soundscapes from radio signals, field recordings, electronics, processed acoustics, turntables and glass manipulations. From the sombre isolationist tones of this record emerge moments of glacial beauty. Twelve minutes into Chapter 1: Residual Spookiness, the haunting toll of treated brass rises from a cloud of distortions and noise to hover ominously over the rest of the piece. The muffled calls of a distant choir on Chapter 2: Shadow Creatures resonate eerily over the first half of the piece, and the feeling never quite goes away, even when they progressively become drowned in distortions and interferences. Ghostly voices can also occasionally be heard piercing through the gloom of Chapter 3: Doppleganger Presence, but it is the more obvious stabs of unidentified noises peppered through the whole piece, which could be everything and anything from rewinding tapes or amplified bat calls to failing computers or paranormal manifestations, which never cease to captivate and intrigue. The heavy atmosphere weighting down on the whole album rarely lifts up for long as Petit and Riparbelli submit their audience to a particularly chilling sonic assault” (Review from The Milk Factory). Released in 2010. Boring Machines, Italy. £8.00

 

K11 The Sacred Wood CD

Another album from this atmospheric Italian post-industrial group. Released in 2010. Old Europa Café, Italy. £9.00

 

KAPITAL BAND 1 Playing by Numbers CD

“Kapital Band 1 are Nicholas Bussmann and Martin Brandlmayr. After their first release 2CD from 2004, there was a second album in the works already nearing completion, which the musicians decided to trash completely and go a step further. Playing By Numbers is the result–the third album. Now electronics have been set a bit aside; in the foreground are acoustic instruments– cello, guitar, vibraphone and marimba, voice, flute and of course drums. The three parts of the composition play around with playing by numbers. All instruments are played by Martin Brandlmayr and Nicholas Bussmann, except the flute which Erik Drescher contributed…” (from label’s website). Released 2008. Mosz, Austria. £6.00

 

KARKOWSKI/COURTIS/GENOVART/HARO/RECHE Connector CD

Released in 2006, this album collects three Karkowski/Courtis/Genovart/Reche collaborations from Buenos Aires in 2004, a further piece from the same year/month/place by Karkowski, Genovart & Reche, and a fifth one also from the same sessions by Karkowski and Haro. Electronics-based noise and grizzled textures intertwine perfectly. Musica Genera, Poland. £8.00

 

JASON KAHN/RICHARD FRANCIS eponymous CD

Collaborative disc. “First two tracks recorded live at Gus Fisher Gallery, Oakland on 22nd September 2007, third one – on 17th June 2008 at Werkstatt für Improvisierte Musik, Zürich, and the last one – at Le 102, Grenoble, on 19th June 2008.” Abstract works comprising Khan on computer and electronics and Francis on analogue synth and percussion. Monochrome Vision. £7.00

 

KATZO Disposition CD

“A (nearly) 70 minute flux of dynamic/driving programmed rhythmic sequences, bass lines, and pulsing grooves…meshed into each other, then infused with microsounds. Katzo is a Japanese project by Katsuya Urushizaki. This is ‘on the go’ ultra high-tech electronic music…great for listening while on the move, or as a ‘night dub soundtrack’ for your deepest dreams.” Silentes, Italy. £5.00

KINETIC Gestaltsystem 01: Possible Forms 2CD

“’Possible Forms’ is the first section of Gestaltsystem, an installation presented in September 2005 at PX Piombino Experimenta sound art festival, Piombino, Italy. It is not a double CD album but an audio set composed by two CDs planned to be played simultaneously. It includes sixteen electronic compositions of identical length (42.42). This work is conceived in order that every track of each CD could play as (a) second layer on every track of the other one…” (from sleevenotes). Very interesting combination of tones, sub-bass waves, pulses and so on. Please note that these CDs arrived without jewel cases, so are not in a 2CD box. Released 2006. Monochrome Vision, Russia. £7.50

 

KINETIX/PYLONE Sonology CD

New release from these two abstract electronics artists. Italy’s Kinetix have two lengthy pieces and Pylone here serve four. Everything, however, works very well together, with both artists exploring textured and oscillating digital gush, tonal banks, looped voices and submerged rhythmic patterns to great effect. Released in 2010. Sound On Probation, France. £6.00

 

KINIT HER Glyms Or Beame of Radical Truthes CD

Following a small cluster of cassette releases (including this particular album), this represents Kinit Her’s debut CD, from 2009. Twelve cuts of constantly shifting ethereal psychedelia. Packaged, like all of this label’s releases, in fantastic printed card slipcase cover. Hinterzimmer, Switzerland. £8.00

 

DENIS KOLOKOL Proud To Be Loud CD

Debut album by this Ukrainian artist now residing in Krakow, Poland, whose work arrives from electro-acoustic exploration and improvisation yet aims for the academic approach of certain modern composers. Very nice album, though, full of movement, depth and the fine art of surprise, with enough electronic noise and crackle sewn into it to keep those of us interested in such things perfectly satisfied. Released in 2010 in a 7” type sleeve on Mathka, Poland. £8.00

 

TOMASZ KRAKOWIAK Moulins CD

Polish percussionist now living in Canada, here with his fourth album since his debut in 2002. Scraped and treated metallic sounds, electronically processed beyond recognition, and a general ‘noise’ aesthetic sometimes giving way to more subtle strategies. Released in 2012. Bocian Records, Poland.

 

KSHATRIY Slepok Soznaniya CD

“The project Kshatriy appeared on the Russian post-industrial scene in 2004 and has so far participated in several compilations, as well as released some solo and collaboration recordings on limited edition CDRs. Zhelezobeton sublabel Muzyka Voln presents the project’s first ‘professional’ CD, “Slepok Sonzaniya” (which translates as “a mould of consciousness”). This work is based on the concept of consciousness of a warrior, a galactic warrior of light, bringing to world pure knowledge, infinite silence, perfect balance, a moment of power and might, a flight of freedom, love, serenity, joy, light, unified time, eternal life, simplicity and bliss. The music of the project can be described as fractal dark drone ambient with lots of patterns, woven from various sonic fibres: synthesized drones, processed field recordings, acoustic echoes and rhythmic loops. Calm and profound, filled with resilience and hidden power, like an endless ocean of tranquility, energy and beauty.”  Hand-numbered edition of 500, released in 2009. Muzyka Voln, Russia. £8.00

 

KSHATRIY Transforming Galaxy CD

Eight new cuts of atmospheric drones and post-industrial yammer. Released in 2012. Muzyka Voln, Russia.  £8.00

 

MARTIN KUCHEN The Lie and the Orphanage CD

Album from 2010 by the Swedish free jazz/improv saxophonist, whose own take on matters proffers something entirely unique. Subdued and breathy sound manipulations emanate from his instrument of choice like little else, only occasionally hinting at their source. Sometimes embellished with a pocket radio and otherwise utilising baritone, alto and tenor saxophones, these eight cuts together add up to one of the most striking genre albums for a long time. Recommended. Mathka, Poland. £8.00

 

MARTIN KUCHEN Hellstorm LP

Latest album by the Swedish acoustic sax improviser given to electroacoustic flourishes, freeform jazz and the more considered realms of subtle noise. Great packaging. 500 pressed. Released in 2012. Mathka, Poland. £16.50

BRIAN LAVELLE Supernaturalist CD

“Exclusive new output from this ambient/electronic artist from Scotland, UK. On Supernaturalist, Brian Lavelle presents 4 long brilliant compositions (70 minutes), minimal at first hearing, but with full maximum impact: bare to multi-layered drones, gentle to hallucinogating field recordings with natural elements, ambient noises and 
real instruments (piano, bass…). A classic album with style, hauntingly beautiful!! Full metallised CD housed in the usual 7” folder cover, ‘pâle bleu’ (pale blue), in an edition of 300 copies only.” Released in 2008. EE Tapes, Belgium. £5.00

 

LEE MILLER The Futility of Language CD

HANNO LEICHTMANN The African Twintower Suite LP

“October 2005: Seminal German director Christoph Schlingensief (R.I.P. 2010) shoots his latest feature film, The African Twintowers, in Lüderitz/Namibia with Irm Hermann, Klaus Beyer, Robert Stadlober, Patti Smith. Autumn 2006: Schlingensief approaches Berlin musician/composer Hanno Leichtmann (Groupshow, Static, Denseland) regarding a soundtrack for the film. There were hours and hours of raw material; the concept being a movie with few dialogues and music throughout – a 90 minute psychedelic collage; an associative visual and sonic trip. With the help of John Nijenhuis aka Sir Henry as well as a trio of musicians playing indian music (tabla, sitar, tampura), they started to improvise in Leichtmann’s recording studio projecting film sequences on a wall. Within 4 days and nights an enormous amount of tracks had been recorded and several rough mixes had been compiled. After a while though, Schlingensief decided to shift the concept. The film transformed into an art installation with 18 monitors showing sequences simultaneously (presented at the Berlinale and Steirischer Herbst), and later on, a kind of  ‘Making of…’ with 90% off-comments by Christoph Schlingensief and very little music was made. Thus, The African Twintowers Suite represents a lost soundtrack; compiling the most interesting recordings, newly edited, layered, collaged, shortened and mixed between 2009 and 2010.” Released in 2010. Dekorder, Germany. £10.00

 

LES AUS Harrana Hanne CD

The debut album by this Spanish duo (who are often aided by guests), from 2006, blending traditional folk elements with the kinda psychedelia, punked-up rock and splashes of progressive avant-noise weirdness the Sun City Girls initially cut their teeth on. Nice. Ozonokids, Spain. £9.00

LOKAI 7 Million CD

Debut from this Austrian duo featuring Stefan Nemeth and Florian Kmet, who can both be found nestled amongst several other laptop or electro-acoustic orientated projects, including, respectively, Radian and Superlooper. Here, they weave mostly delicate and organic textures together via guitar and electronics that are often rich and atmospheric yet can give way to noisier moments, such as during the lengthy ‘Chuuk’. Released 2005. Mosz, Austria. £7.00

LASSE MARHAUG It’s Not the End of the World CD

Reissue of a CDR originally released on China’s Doufu Records in 2006. “(This album) finds Lasse Marhaug slamming you with 10 relatively short, sharp and memorable noise shocks. Like an audio rollercoaster ride that twists and turns you through all kinds of noise textures and sound elements to give you one hell of an invigorating ride. This is noise art at its top level. Instantly addictive and dense, Lasse really twists your head all over the place here. There’s are also musical elements and textures popping up here and there or sneaking their way through the rhythmic, harsh and inventive noise textures – but never lessening the impact or power. You’ll find looped electro pulse surround in buzzing insectaria wonder, as feedback hits and rips attack your ears. What sounds like amped up rain batters in neat rhythmic crispness and static crunch. Jacked-up and demented industrial beat worlds start up a foot tap dance with stuck horn elements as tuneful noise manipulation move, coming off like messed up stretched and tense reggae. Static swims and explores going against lock throbbing drone textures, before exploding into noise wonder. Another fine example of why Marhaug is one of the top three or four names in the noise genre today. Simply put: a consistent, varied and clever forty minute lesson in memorable & highly creative brutality.” (Roger Batty, www.musiquemachine.com). Released 2007.  Quasi-Pop, Ukraine.  £7.00

 

MATTIN & RICHARD FRANCIS Lisa Says LP

MOLJEBKA PVLSE Iode Ivx 7”

“For some years now Stockholm based artist Mathias Josefson has delighted the drone scene with his highly minimal excursions into drone territory. From harsh noise to soft & gentle ambience the aim is to reach a basic level of sound conscience. In doing so the ‘human mind’ and the ‘sound mind’ interact to build a symbiotic entity. Moljebka Pvlse is Josefson’s sound art project where he often collaborates with Karin Jacobson. The two pieces ‘lode’ and ‘lvx’ are great examples of breathing drone structures which seem to be derived from real string or wind instruments. Harmonic & mysterious, dense & aspiring…. this is indeed music like a lode of illuminations…” Limited to 300. Released 2008. Drone Records, Germany. £3.00

 

JOACHIM MONTESSUIS Chapel Perilous LP

New album by this French artist dedicated to noisy vocal manipulations and scrunched-up electronics, featuring 23 tracks in total. 317 pressed. Released in 2012. Fragment Factory, Germany. £11.00

 

GEORGE MOORE Plastic Flowers LP

“George Moore is the 20 year old son of Ecstatic Peace recording artist Gene Moore (we released his far-out Twisting Wires CD last summer 2001- Gene Moore is the older brother of Thurston Moore who runs Ecstatic Peace and plays guitar and sings for Sonic Youth.) Regardless of these obvious bloodline connections George Moore’s musical world should, would and could easily creep into the living underground on its own mystic merits. He recorded these instrumental pieces at some point in early 2001 and issued them privately in an edition smaller than Albini’s dick. The music therein is an amalgamation of spurious signals wholly independent though readings and mis-readings of John Fahey, Whitehouse and Jackie-O Motherfucker are in probable detection. The basement aura of this session will appeal to anyone even slightly aroused by the aforementioned troika. A limited edition of 400. Ecstatic Peace have several future Moore family releases queued up, so you might as well get in on the second floor… Pressing disclaimer: noise, static, glitchery is acceptable / intentional according to the label and is an acceptable augmentation to the bedroom fidelity recording.” Ecstatic Peace, USA. £8.00

 

STEVE MOORE Demo 2003 + Bonus Track LP

Restock of this limited edition LP (500 only) from 2008, comprising ten (count ‘em!) cuts of atmospheric drone-orientated shimmer ‘n’ glaze. Hlava, Germany. £11.00

[MULTER] Schauzeichen 10”

From 2003, a limited edition release by the German ambient-drone/electronics duo that’s actually one of about three not found on their own label. Auf Abwegen, Germany. £4.00

 

MARIAE NASCENTI Raise Your Paw to the Sky and Break the Truce CD

“Second Mariae Nascenti ‘s long awaited full length album on Final Muzik is out, 
and we’re proud of it! Produced by Fabrizio Modonese Palumbo (Larsen), ‘Raise…’ is without any doubt the best ever recorded work of Mariae Nascenti: pain, loneliness, immagination, dreams, blood, souls and flesh collide together in this emotional wonderful album. You can file it under (some) Coil or Current 93 early recordings, or it could remind you a few N.W.W. song-oriented chapters. That’s ok… but ‘Raise…’ develops though vital energy a devastating tabula rasa of feelings, through another-dimension melodies, ‘found’ songs, silences, sudden spoken texts, obscure nightmare soundtracks and cold nocturnal music for black’n’white memories. Limited edition of 1.200 copies, digipak, including video-track and mini-booklet. Featuring musicians from Larsen, Northgate, Blind Cave Salamander, Femina Faber / Ludmila, DsorDNE, and many, many other artists and Ango’s friends…”  Released in 2007. FinalMuzik, Italy. £6.00

NID Plate Tectonics CD

Debut release from this Swiss trio featuring members of Phased and Feine Trinkers bei Pinkels Daheim, coming out after twelve years of existence (and much in the way of touring throughout Europe and only having previously had their music available on limited edition CDRs) and capturing recordings just as they actually split up, in 2004. Textured ambience, tones, hushed passages and drones meet to create a sound falling somewhere between post-rock and industrial music’s forays into more measured or soundtrack-ish work. Released in 2006. Auf Abwegen, Germany. £4.00

 

BJ NILSEN & Z’EV 22’ 22” CD

Collaborative disc from 2007 by the master of occasionally noise-orientated electronic drone/textural music and the infamous metal percussionist. Contains three lengthy cuts, two of which are solo and the third a collaboration. iDEAL Recordings, Sweden. £11.00

 

NIWEA Wszystko  7”

Moody and minimal synth-based music. Doubtlessly limited. Released in 2012. Bocian Records, Poland. £6.00

 

FREDERIC NOGRAY Nelki CD

“Frédéric Nogray diverts his rock crystal crucibles from their usual function in the silicon industry to generate an ample and tactile music, a music that succeeds as much in making the listener’s intellect wander as it does in moving the material itself. Although entirely acoustic, this music is powerful, the different-sized bowls being generators of distinct waves operating in the range of frequencies from infra- to ultrasonic. Because of their superimposition and the acoustics of the space they are in, chimeras or interferences are born. A musical event partaking simultaneously in the creation of perception and corporal experience. Recorded by Eric Cordier, Décembre 2007 in churches Normandy, France.” Released 2008. Prele Records, France. £8.00

 

NU & APA NEAGRA Omag CD

Great semi-improvised and experimental psychedelia from this Romanian group formerly known, simply, as Nu. This is the debut album, from 2008. Lollipop Shop, Germany. £7.00

2005 album of severely processed space-mulch culled from various live and studio recordings by the Japanese guitarist. Blossoming Noise, USA. £9.00

 

KK NULL Galactic Tornado CD

“The album Galactic Tornado by Mr. Kazuyuki Kishino (KK NULL) presents the deep, dense & dynamic electronic music. It’s unconditional, intuitive and highly emotional excellent audio-work. Combining synthetic sounds from various synthesizers and electronic machines with acoustic audio signals, the composer explores (from his own point of view) some artistic values of “psychedelic electronic sound” that were widly presented on space/electronic/kraut albums from ‘70s. Naturally, this CD could be recommended for listeners who prefer the contemporary experimental sound in its highest quality and for fans of “retro spacey” sound from the groups such as Popol Vuh, Cluster or even Tangerined Dream as well.

Luxurious 6-panels digipack with silver lettering and spot varnishing feautures artwork with images done by Kazuyuki Kishino.” Limited to 500. Quasi-Pop, Ukraine. £11.00

ONOMATOPOEIA Irrelevant LP

New album from the long-running project of Steve Fricker’s, although it only actually a reissue of a cassette that originally appeared in 1997 on the Perverse Series imprint. “Irrelevant started life in 1997 as a cassette that ran to 70 copies. The 7.17 From West Wittering Is Late Again have reissued it on vinyl and in doing so have done us a great service. Utilising a single instrument for each track Onomatopoeia create sounds that range from the almost Industrial to pure experimentation. On Corduroy Croquette Clap-Clinic Cull a single cymbal is hit repeatedly, little rhythms building and dying away. Blennorrhoea [utilising one Piccolo] creates a ghostly ambience, Cellophane Cucumber Clamjamphire [utilising one hunting horn] is equally funereal. You get the picture. Horns cymbals, piccolos, a bass guitar and a zambomba [an African drum] all taken in some way to create sounds that become removed from the original instrument. There must be some treatments or multi tracking going on tho I’m no expert, with maybe the cymbal track coming though as the purest [and harshest] of the lot and Bland Basingstoke [utilising the zambomba] being mangled in such a way as to sound like a looped Con-Dom fill. My only slight criticism of the whole enterprise are the latter parts of the almost side long Chafed Cervix Coleslaw Cum Chutney Cesspit [utilising bass guitar] in the latter parts of which the bass guitar becomes too obviously apparent. In a track that begins with some fine two phase oscillating fizz it peters out into random bass farts that end up sounding like a poor mans Sonic Youth solo. But let us not depart Onomatopoeia waters on such a low note because for us Onomatopoeia fans any appearance is to be warmly welcomed. I for one hope that some equally benevolent soul takes up the task of reissuing those other obscure Onomatopoeia releases but for now I’m more than happy with this.” (Idwal Fisher). Released in a numbered edition of 300 in 2010. The 7.17 From West Wittering Is Late Again. £12.50

 

JAMES O’SULLIVAN Feed Back Couple CD

Abstract, textural and even sometimes percussive guitar-based works from this songwriter with leanings towards improvisation. Released 2011. Forwind. £9.00

THE OVAL LANGUAGE Tapes, Singles and Remixes CD

“This first CD album presents the old tracks restored from tapes, as well as exclusive remixes made by Guido Hübner (Das Synthetische Mischgewebe). It’s a wonderful excursion into the world of underground noise music which is sometimes extreme but always interesting and unpredictable. Thi is a very special appearance in our personal music research, and is a real discovery for all the fans of the experimental music genre.” Released 2010. Monochrome Vision, Russia. £8.50

Box set collection from 2011 by this US artist whose work is given to abstract electronics, abrasive sounds and suchlike. Numbered edition of 100, wrapped in special foil packaging. Impulsy Stetoskopu, Poland. £6.50

 

LAURENT PERNICE and LAURENT PERRIER Play Piano and Sounds CD

Collaborative album by these two ex-Nox members who’ve long since cut their respective teeth on a long-winded and always interesting solo trajectory. Pernice is given to composing gentle piano pieces whose style Perrier also apparently copied over a period of several years. Adding various subtle sounds and rhythms to these pieces, all of them fall in with the more atmospheric or even haunting end of the spectrum. Guest vocals also appear on one piece. Features five cuts by Pernice and four by Perrier. Released in late 2010. Sound On Probation, France. £8.00

LAURENT PERRIER Downfall Disperse 2CD

Album from 2006 by this French artist whose background in post-industrial and various forms of electronic music have been well documented via his Heal and Zonk’t ventures, amongst others. All the tracks composed here were for the Alban Richard/Ensemble l’Abrupt choreography, ‘Downfall’, created in January 2004 in Paris, and ‘Disperse’, created in May 2005. ‘Downfall’ assumes a dark, atmospheric posture that borders on Plastikman territory with its deep throbs, pulses and distant clangs, whilst ‘Disperse’ stalks similar ground but pushes the industrial soundscapes and violent electronic crackle to the fore. Very nice. Sound On Probation, France. £9.00

 

PERRY FERYA BAND Back Out CDR

“Ferya – folk musician born and working in Central Pomerania. In cooperation with two other folk artists: Maya (Skala, Cosmic Liar & Murderer, ex- Rzepczyno Folk Band, OKW, Tetmayer & others) and Lech – local animator of Western African drumming traditions – plundered sounds recorded with them over the years to form the Back Out album. The works of Perry Ferya Band descend from the culture of local proletariat clubs. Back Out reflects the tradition of collective music playing ‘under the influence’ out of the longing for the big world and reflections on human fate. If there’s still anyone with an undisturbed joy of playing, it’s for sure the Perry Ferya Band.

Back Out refers to the tradition of experimental improvisations from ‘60s & ‘70s transferred into the field of plunderphonics. Bits used to create the album were made out of recordings of instruments which were later processed and mixed together. The next step in recycling their own works was live improvisation on these collages. Back Out brings together electronics and psychedelic neofolk, improvisation and studio processing and for it’s creators was just a great fun to play with sounds.” (Label notes). Released in 2011. Limited. In special packaging. Recycling Records, Poland. £5.00

 

TOMAS PHILIPS & DEAN KING Les Mailles CD

Lengthy experimental dronework from 2008, lasting almost forty minutes. Monochrome Vision, Russia. £7.00

 

DAVE PHILLIPS ? CD

“Assembled between April and June 2009 as part of a therapeutic process during a period dominated by severe disturbances of loss, mental abysses and despair, “?” is the new gospel from Swiss experimentalist Dave Phillips, co-founder of grindcore legend Fear of God, a member of the sense perplexing Schimpfluch-Gruppe and the pulverizing force behind the Rudimentary Peni one-man-doom-drone worship act Dead Peni, among numerous other projects. 

“?” offers a 79 minutes album of field recordings oriented compositions that feature murky cello, piano and accordion parts, nocturnal voices, a vast array of concrete snippets and more resonances of existences that give Albert Aylers’ “Music is the healing force of the universe” new depths and meanings. “?” sees Phillips observing and carefully dissecting his human psyche into ten intimate and innovative music pieces, confronting them with the bile and degradation of the omnipresent while deconstructing his own ravage with a binding urge to cleanse. And it’s a fascinating insight to listen to.”  Heart & Crossbone, Israel. £7.00

 

ZDZISLAW PIERNIK/PIOTR ZABRODZKI Namanga CD

Fifteen cuts from 2008 on this collaborative album comprising Piernik on tuba and Zabrodzki on electric piano, organ, bass, double bass and ‘other’ sounds. Aided by Wojciech Kondrat on violin and Hubert Zemler on percussion and vibraphone, they create an outer-jazz environment that allows for sinewy melodies and a baroque overtone to combine over a range of moods. Sometimes noisy and at others either hypnotic or stirring up some traditional refrains, the tendency for drama forever prevails. Nice work. Vivo, Poland.  £9.00

 

FRANCIS PLAGNE eponymous CD

“(This) is the second album by fractured kaleidoscope pop sound by the pound Francis Plagne. This eponymous release further explores Francis’ obsessions with ‘pop’ and ‘organised sound’, all from a modest bedroom studio in the Eastern Suburbs of Melbourne, Francis has developed his craft to a level way beyond his 19 years. Incorporating field recordings, drones, electronics and improvisations, along with harmony-rich pop songs of the finest order. Unusual, identifiable and exciting. Leave your delay pedals and cheap drone at the door.” Synaesthesia/Mistletone Recordings, Australia. £9.00

 

POOCHLATZ Victim of Self Preservation CD

Against all odds, we strive for excellence – we pray for prey, but shudder helpless – what’s the meaning of this perverse? I’ve got them infecting on the flaws, questioning the truth – if needed, they will convert heaven into a burning hollow space – but once anxiety will slap me back, sanity will strike some points – could it be that everyone needs a miss to flourish?” (Label notes). Ultra noise album from 2008. HCB Records, Israel. £7.00

 

PSEUDO CODE Europa CD

Reissue of this electronic Belgian group’s album from 1980, minus one song and including both a different version of another and several extra tracks otherwise once released as two EPs. “The Belgian label EE Tapes has mainly used us to dive into the deepest realms of experimental music, but the release of Pseudo Code can be considered as an exception to the rule! Pseudocode is a Belgian combo that was active between 1979 and 1982. To be honest with you, I never heard from this band before, but back in time distribution and promotion was hard to find while internet facilities didn’t even exist. Europa is a kind of anthology bringing the Europa LP and 2 EP’s back to life as a full length CD featuring 19 songs. The songs smell like the good-old spirit of the early 80s electronic experiments. It’s easily recognizable and most of the songs still make sense! The debut cuts ‘She’s Got Blue Eyes Wow’ and ‘Addis Abeba’ will for sure evoke some good-old memories. Today we would call it minimalist electronics, but back in time this band was active at the same time as famous pioneers like Cabaret Voltaire, Throbbing Gristle, etc.. I even perceived a few songs (cf. ‘Sub-Rosa – The Last Hole’, ‘Far Away From My Own Land’, ‘Suffering’ and ‘Memories’) reminding me of the more experimental style of Throbbing Gristle. Pseudo Code seems to have moved in between more ‘classical’ electronics and experimental forms. In a more explicit electro style a song like ‘Simulation (To The Blue Eyed Boy)’ is a pretty short, but efficient song. I think it’s a very good initiative of EE Tapes to bring this unknown Belgian band back to life. This album is a limited release available in 2 cover versions.”  Released in 2010 and packaged in oversized single-type sleeve. Limited to 300. EE Tapes, Belgium. £7.00

 

PSEUDO CODE ‘The Third e.p.’ 7”

Limited edition release of four cuts from 1981 by this cult electronic group. 165 copies only. EE Tapes, Belgium. £7.00

 

PYLONE Black Grains CD

Another faintly anonymous album from Laurent Perrier’s imprint, collecting almost an hour’s worth of micro-crackle, electronic murmur, dark tones, tempered noise, electro-acoustic and amber texture-based cuts. Sound On Probation, France. £6.00

 

PYLONE Grounded Hands CD

Second album by this Laurent Perrier-founded project, released in October 2008. “After ‘Black Grains’, Pylone’s second album goes on developing micro sounds in closed environments. ‘Grounded Hand’ is a mass in disarray, a collage of cracking and clicking sounds, clinical minimal repetitive heartbeat inviting listeners to follow its author through an experience of granular meditation, a dive into crunching, vibrating sound material. If the first part is made of harsh abstract compositions, the second part opens up to space, to cinematic, contemplative atmospheres.” Sound On Probation, France. £6.00

QUARTER eponymous CD

Moody and contemplative songs arriving from twilight electronics, babbling meta-swirl, unearthly flutterings, distant sax descents, percussive slow-burn and deep bass anchorage, occasionally recalling Clock DVA, Legendary Pink Dots and Coil. Vivo, Poland. £6.00

QUEST FOR BLOOD with YUKIHIRO ISSO  eponymous CD

Eight cuts by this Japanese outfit whose background in black metal belies the completely insane, wild flute-led, frenetic yet more loose approach here. If anything, brings to mind a far more aggressive Amon Duul or somesuch, with a flute dominating proceedings that is freeform and akin to Ayler’s sax blasts. Little wonder this is on Jussi Lehtisalo’s forever intriguing and often enlightening Ektro imprint. £8.00

 

RAMLEH Switch Hitter 10”

Two recordings from 2004/2005 by a group most of you should be familiar with, here (of course) continuing their rock-based phase. Black Rose Recordings. £7.50

 

RANNISTO Surrur 7”

Two untitled cuts on this limited edition release from 2009 by Antti Rannisto, proffering the type of meaty and rhythmic electronics previously witnessed by Profan and some of the MaxErnst releases and falling somewhere near the deeper and darker end of minimal techno. 200 only. White vinyl. iDEAL Recordings, Sweden. £4.00

 

RAPOON Escaping from Color CD

The ex-Zoviet France project given over to remixes and reworkings by Francisco Lopez, Troum, Steve Roden, Gert-Jan Prins, Aidan Baker, Anla Courtis, Family Underground, Mike Shiflet and a number of others. Quasi Pop, Ukraine. £8.00

 

RAPOON Time-Loop Anomalies CD

Nice electronic works from Robin Storey’s continuing project. Released in 2012. Zoharum, Poland. £9.00

 

RAUDIVE BUNKER EXPERIMENT Falling 7”

Limited edition release, from 2009, comprising early ‘80s electronic and tape recordings by Andy Wilson (ex-Bourbonese Qualk, plus responsible for one of the Faust online forums). Two neat songs that have the waft the post-industrial cassette scene over them. Youdon’thavetocallitmusic, Germany. £4.00

 

RAUDIVE BUNKER EXPERIMENT eponymous 2LP

Stunning gathering of early ‘80s material by Andy Wilson (ex-Bourbonese Qualk), mostly originally released via cassettes and a compilation LP appearance under the RBE moniker. Fractured rhythms, raw tape spillage, and a sensibility wavering between abstract pop and post-industrial madness. 24 cuts in all, gatefold sleeve, and limited to 500. Released in 2009. Youdon’thaveto callitmusic, Germany. £14.50

 

RAXINASKY The Anti-apopathodiaphulatophobicoustical Days CD

Second album, from 2008, by this Belgian experimental-grind group who blend in everything from jazz and prog to math rock with their approach. Heart & Crossbone, Israel. £6.00

 

RETARDER Enquiries CD

Solo debut album from Lloyd James of Naevus, built around eight songs that themselves never really sound quite the same as each other and employ all from electronics, improvised piano, meaty bass, guitar strums, samples, poetry, atmospheric textures and so on. Released in an edition of 400 in 2009. Tourette, USA. £8.00

 

REVENANT Topolo CD

“’Revenant’ is an ongoing project with open membership that focuses on site-specific acoustic actions, or activiated environments. Each action is a document of a specific moment in time in a specific location. Huge pines, chestnuts, beeches, and a few oaks. A vague border. On one side a Slovenian village, on the other an Italian one, which our maps locate at the end of a cul de sac. En route for this slovenian village, on this ageless path, having begun in the village of Topolò, bags full of bits and pieces: a few biscuits, a recorder, some chocolate, several worn out old violin bows. The path becomes ever steeper and more tortuous, sometimes blocked by fallen logs, sometimes aided by stone steps barely showing. The trees try to tempt us off the path; then one or two of us give in to the call of a huge pine standing proudly to one side. With the first light touch the tree speaks: a strangled sound pierced through by a note both muffled and sharp, a pluck of another twig, a bowing of a third, a held frequency, a slight pressure on another until it breaks. Each dried branch of this sound-tree gives rise to stammers, murmurs, cries or whispers, linguistic trial… (from Olivier Feraud’s text).” Released 2008. Prele Records, France. £5.00

 

RLW The Pleasure of Burning Down Churches CD

Four pieces of German electro-acoustic artist Ralf Wehowsky’s trademark, yet distinctive, blend of musique concrete, crackle, field recordings, scrunched-up electronics and micro signatures, this time inspired by and using material recorded during his travels in Vietnam in the ‘90s. Highly recommended. Black Rose Recordings. £9.00

 

RLW & TITO Mahlzeit CD

Collaborations between these two artists from 2006 to 2007, then released in 2008. Grizzled electronics, musique concrete, abstract sounds, etc. Fantastic card sleeve packaging. Hinterzimmer, Switzerland. £8.00

 

EUGENE S. ROBINSON + PHILIPPE PETIT The Crying of Lot 69 CD

New release comprising collaborative pieces featuring Petit providing the backdrop of electronic sounds to Oxbow’s Eugene Robinson’s spoken word musings. Very effective. Also features Rhys Chatham on trumpet on one piece. Monotype Records, Poland. £9.00

RORICAT Uki Uki CD

“Russian duo consisting of Eugene & Julica, make spacey, abstract instrumentals. Heavily delayed guitar strumming, accompanied by various random sounds and minimal hand drum percussion. Light & airy ambient guitars with subtle rhythms. Very relaxing…” Released in 2002. £6.00

MIGUEL A. RUIZ Grosor CD

“This is the new, remastered version of classic material recorded back in ’80s, next to post-industrial aesthetics priority in electronic music. Rigorous and austere, ascetic but dynamic, this music rearranges everyday being into mind-challenging imagination, reserving the leading parts for the habitual processes and domestic objects. From the deep underground of Spanish industrial music, it comes to be rediscovered after 15 years.” Monochrome Vision, Russia. £7.50

 

HENRIK RYLANDER Power Model X (Motherboard Drone Live) CD

Two cuts by the Swedish sound artist, the first from a recording of a performance at a gallery in Sweden also devoted to a Rylander exhibition and the second from an event in Chicago the same year (2006). Noise/droneworks. Limited to 500 in a digipak. Released in 2009. iDEAL Recordings, Sweden. £11.00

 

SAM GAS CAN Aswang 7”

Limited edition release of 300 of this obscure enough electronic noise/rock record from 2008. Hand numbered and made available through a three-way label collaboration. Ozonokids/Feeding Tube/Faux Pas, Spain/USA. £3.50

SICKNESS/JOHN WIESE Amnesia 7”

Four collaborative electronic noise pieces by these mainstays of, well, such areas of music. Released in 2011. Freak Animal, Finland. £4.00

STEVEN SEVERIN/CODEX ASTRA Circles of Silver  CDS

New release by Severin’s Codex Astra project/series, here with two very nice abstract yet atmospheric electronic pieces that see his work taking on more depth than earlier solo releases. Limited to 777 copies in nicely embossed digipak sleeves. Erototox Recordings, USA. £5.00

 

STEVEN SEVERIN Blood of a Poet (Le Sang D’un Poete) CD

The second release in Steven Severin’s Music for Silents series, here bringing together his score for Jean Cocteau’s surrealistic classic from 1930 and, in turn, a suitable mix of often haunting textures and tones, rhythmic swells and occasionally melodic refrains. Fantastic piece of work. Released 2010. Cold Spring. £7.00

SHRINE  Distorted Legends, Part 1 7”

“”Behind Shrine we find a fresh experimental drone project from Bulgaria (currently residing in England) combining the melancholia of distorted synths with odd micro noises & effects. The fusion of rough and thunderous drones with hidden melodies evokes a strong emotional impact, like the feeling of being stuck in a confusing dream. Shrine’s philosophy shows a way to realize that what we call ‘reality’ is to be mistrusted based upon our usual perceptions. The distortion of this reality opens up a chance to better understand its true essence and confront the things that lie behind the surface.” Limited to 300 in oversize full colour sleeve. Released 2008. Drone Records, Germany.  £4.00

 

SIX ORGANS OF ADMITTANCE Shivers 7”

Fantastic cover of the late Rowland S. Howard’s classic 1979 song by Ben Chasny’s psychedelic folk group. Doubtlessly limited. Released in 2012. Tourette, USA. £5.00

 

SKULLFLOWER Fucked Up On A Pile of Corpses CD

Album from 2011 by Matthew Bower’s longstanding drone-rock/noise/psych-metal group. Cold Spring.  £8.00

 

SLEEP RESEARCH FACILITY Stealth 2CD

Latest album by this long serving and much respected group given to furrowing dark drones and banks of oppressive fog. Released in 2012. Cold Spring Records. £11.00

 

SMEGMA Morass Live LP

Eleven cuts originally from 1986 and 1988 by the long-running abstract electronics/improv/noise/collage group. Released in 2009 in an edition of 300. Bimbo Tower, France. £10.00

 

EDWARD SOL/ANLA COURTIS Sunburst Lux split-7”

“Both compositions on this record relate (more or less) to ‘tape music’. The piece of Argentinian experimental master Anla Courtis is solely based on the manipulated sounds of geysers, recorded in South America. Ukrainian Edward Sol works with weird cassette loops, lo-fi oscillations and some primitive tones from his vintage USSR-made analogue synth Polyvox. Generally speaking, the sound of this record belongs to  monolithic dark drone music.” Limited to 300. Quasi-Pop, Ukraine. £5.00

SONNAMBLE Seven Months In E Minor CD

Seven cuts by this London –based duo who remain dedicated to the idea of manipulations of stringed instruments via homemade software. Nicely hewn soft-focus abstract electronicaa. Released in 2010. Forwind. £8.00

SONNAMBLE Blindlight CD

New album, comprising four pieces of string-led electronica/droneworks. Released in 2011. Forwind. £8.00

SPLINTERED/RLW eponymous CD

The last album by my own old group, Splintered, released in 1996 and comprising six collaborative tracks with Germany’s Ralf Wehowsky. Utilising looped rhythms, frazzled guitars, analogue burbling, musique concrete and far more besides, as well as distant chanted vocals that sometimes sound like they’ve been snatched from a disused monastery, I’d still personally contend this was everything I was striving for with my vision of the group. Despite the fact this album got berated by just about everybody at the time, I’m still very proud of this album and feel it holds up well. Fuck the critics anyway. They don’t usually count…unless they’reme! After this album, Splintered evolved into Theme, although further Splintered activity may yet one day happen. Black Rose Recordings. £8.00

 

STUDENT FILM Facts and Values 7”

First in a series of singles entitled Lazy Circles, although it is not clear whether this has been set by the label or the band. Whatever, as far as I can tell, this is US group Student Film’s second release, following an album, and comprises two tracks of well-rounded and artful indie-rock/pop destined to go far, I’d imagine. Released in 2011. Red vinyl and doubtlessly limited. Little Mafia, USA. £3.00

 

STYLUS Eisteddfod CD

Latest release, from 2005. “The first officially available live material from experimental veteran Dafydd Morgan, ‘Eisteddfod’ is comprised of live recordings made in the summer of 2002 (at the National Eisteddfod of Wales and for Radio Amgen) and amply showcases his cavernous soundscapes. Ranging from the relative light of ‘Migration’ and its subdued bird song, through to the almost baroque opening of ‘Angle’, Stylus makes what could be unremittingly personal music in a way that opens it up to the listener. Broad and bijou…” Irrational Arts. £7.00

 

SUBJECT/HUMAN DANCE  ‘The (Almost) Insanely Happy e.p. ‘ split-7”

Three tracks each by these contemporary minimal electronic/synth-pop groups. Released in 2011. EE Tapes, Belgium. £6.00

 

SUB LOAM The Ley Hunter’s Companion CD

Following a few low run CDR releases by this UK project, The Ley Hunter’s Companion is the debut album ‘proper’ and brings together two lengthy pieces of ambient electronics not so far removed from some of Jliat or Tangerine Dream’s work. Released in a numbered edition of 230, in oversized sleeve, during late 2011. Dissolving Records.  £8.00

 

SUPERBUGGER  AKU CD

Debut album from a lo-fi and fuzz-drenched noise/stoner rock duo from New Zealand, completely in keeping with the sound that usually emanates from this island. Six pieces of music to enjoyably annoy many people with. Released in 2012. Heart & Crossbone, Israel. £9.00

 

TBC/GUY SALDHANA Anti-Gravitation 7”

Two pieces of post-industrial avstract eletronics. Released in 2005 in an edition of 242 copies. Knistern, Germany. £3.75

TESTING VAULT The Laughing Torso CD

TEXT OF LIGHT Un Pranzo Favoloso/A Fabulous Lunch CD

“We’re proud to announce the new CD album of TEXT OF LIGHT: ‘Un Pranzo Favoloso’ has been recorded on 26th May 2005 at Auditorium Concordia in Pordenone (Italy) during the ‘Schermo Sonoro – Cinemazero’ festival. In this incredible concert Lee Ranaldo, Alan Licht, Tim Barnes and Ulrich Krieger played on Stan Brakhage experimental movies; the band explores the concept of soundtrack and creates something new out of it, a ‘sonic continuum’ between music and the movies, in which Stan Brackage’s images become sounds. Amazing.” Released in 2006. FinalMuzik, Italy. £7.00

 

THEME Valentine (Lost) Forever CD

The third album by Richard Johnson and Stuart Carter (both of Splintered notoriety), released in late 2009 and pushing the atmospheric and organic droneworks of before into a ‘song’ context with heavier emphasis on lyrics, electronics and an often overwhelming sense of a world teetering at the point where violent dreams and claustrophobia meet.

UTON Straight Edge XXS LP

Straight Edge XXS is the 2nd vinyl album by Finland’s Uton released in a strictly limited edition of 500 copies on the Dekorder label. It comes in a gorgeous full-colour collage sleeve assembled by Hirvonen himself. While Uton’s last Dekorder album, Alitaju Ylimina, (and most of his other recorded works respectively) are hazy lo-fi drone masterpieces for the most part, this is a completely diffferent affair. Recorded straight to tape within one month, right after returning from a 6-month trip to India, these songs (if you could call them songs) are completely out-of-this-world; very short and crazed sketch-like pieces sounding like a Nonesuch Explorer LP of long lost field recordings from an as yet unexplored continent. Or is it World Music from an unknown planet recorded by those Sublime Frequencies guys from mysterious short wave transmissions?

Well, it is all that and more. It is pure ecstatic expression channelized through Psychedelia, Free Jazz, Noise and rural ancient Folk Music from all over the world in a completely naked, predominantly acoustic setting. One of the purest forms of music you could imagine; while all the familiar Uton elements remain evident in a hazy backcloth.

Uton is the one-man project of Jani Hirvonen originally hailing from Tampere. Hirvonen is one of the most active musicians of the Finnish underground scene that has recently presented us the likes of Kuupuu, Kemialliset Ystävät, Islaja, Paavoharju and Lau Nau and a seemingly never-ending stream of beautiful and highly original record releases.

Uton has previously released dozens of CDs, CD-Rs and cassettes on a myriad of labels including Jewelled Antler, Pseudo Arcana, Last Visible Dog, Digitalis, Ruralfauna and his own Ikuisuus. He has collaborated with Amon Dude (Avarus), Anla Courtis (Reynols), Antony Milton (Black Boned Angel), Ben Reynolds, Peter Wright, Phil Todd (Ashtray Navigations) and Jan Anderzen (Tomutonttu, Kemialliset Ystävät) among others. The latter collaboration (under the Hevoset moniker) is released on LP by Dekorder simultaneously.” Released in 2008. Dekorder, Germany. £9.00

 

UTON Unexplained Objects LP

Unexplained Objects is the 3rd vinyl-only LP by Finland’s Uton for the Dekorder label, like his previous Dekorder albums released in a strictly limited edition of 500 copies in a beautiful full-colour heavy duty sleeve designed by Hirvonen himself. While the last albums explored rural soundworlds from the outer reaches of this planet and hidden places of the inner human (and animal) mind, he has finally left planet earth completely and is now reaching out for outer space and alien communication. Hirvonen seems to have traveled the spaceways, bringing home folk music and field recordings from faraway planets and alien cultures. Erich von Däniken beware! Uton is the one-man project of Jani Hirvonen originally hailing from Tampere. Hirvonen is one of the most active musicians of the Finnish underground scene that has recently presented us the likes of Kuupuu, Kemialliset Ystävät, Islaja, Paavoharju and Lau Nau and a seemingly never-ending stream of beautiful and highly original record releases. Uton has previously released dozens of CDs, CD-Rs and cassettes on a myriad of labels including Jewelled Antler, Pseudo Arcana, Last Visible Dog, Digitalis, Ruralfauna and his own Ikuisuus.

ROEL MEELKOP/FRANS DE WAARD Elfde Mixer 12”

“Side A: In the course of the years, Kapotte Muziek has given several workshops for anyone interested in their way of working. An important part of these workshops was for the participants to make field recordings. These recordings are now part of Kapotte Muziek’s archive and have been distributed to the participants. Many of these recordings are exceptionally well done, as far as recording technique is concerned, but also as raw material, needed for the presentation of workshops. Roel Meelkop has used this archive for the track {Workshop}, using most of the material in its raw state and only with minor editing. Thanks are due to all participants, Frans & Peter and Martijn. Side B: All source material used in these recordings comes from the Kapotte Muziek USA tour of 1993. Kapotte Muziek were that time: Peter Duimelinks and Frans de Waard.

GERRITT WITTMER Vessel LP

Two side-long pieces by the US artist who usually operates simply under the Gerritt guise and is prone to delivering electronic noise. Here, the approach is more measured and takes in a musique concrete or electroacoustic feel, with subtle electronic sounds, what seem like vocalisations and other indiscernible babbling. Very effective. Released in 2010 in an edition of 200. Misanthropic Agenda, USA. £9.00

WOODEN VEIL eponymous CD

“Wooden Veil is a Berlin-based art group formed in 2007.  Inspired by the shared hauntedness of their respective homelands, they combine elements from forgotten and misremembered traditions to create a microcosmic world which only Wooden Veil inhabits, complete with its own symbols, clothing, food and shelters.  Performances, installations and videos are characterized by an expansive wardrobe of ritual dress, and the creation of shrines, relics and talismans used to create music. The group consists of artists Marcel Türkowsky (also a composer, founder of Snake Figures Arkestra, Cones, Uuhuu, collaborations with Datashock and Christoph Heemann), Hanayo (known for her solo work as a photographer and singer, collaborating with the likes of Christoph Schlingensief, Merzbow, Red Crayola, and Kai Althoff), Christopher Kline (Valkenburg Hermitage, †, Night Music, and Soft Peace), Dominik Noé (member of krautrock legends Lustfaust),  and Jan Pfeiffer (Songs For Rocks, Soft Peace, Purple).” From 2009.

RICHARD YOUNGS Like a Neuron LP

“Richard Youngs is a prolific British musician (located in Glasgow) with an extremely diverse output. Dusted Magazine once wrote he is ‘defying strict genre classifications since the early nineties, swapping labels, styles, partners, motifs, and recording techniques as the desire has struck him. So [this] album for Dekorder might not be a surprise to anyone following his career. Still, a self-proclaimed all-electronic ‘ecstatic House record’ comes somewhat unexpected. With a line of distinctive synthesizers often used for Techno/House Music Youngs recreates the energy, euphoria and frenzy of these styles without ever trying to recreate the music note by note. The final outcome sounds like recordings made by aliens who have received transmissions about House Music but never listened to the music itself. The album reminds [one] of the sound of hallways/corridors inbetween large House parties where you can hear the music from several floors collide. While it’s an emulation, interpretation or replica of House Music, it’s still managing to evoke similar feelings even though some might find it difficult to dance to the music.”  Released in 2009. Dekorder, Germany. £10.00

 

ANNA ZARADNY/BURKHARD STANGL split-12”

Fantastic split by Polish artist Zaradny and the Austrian guitarist. Two lengthy pieces of abstract and atmospheric electronics. Released in 2012. Bocian Records, Poland. £9.00

 

ANDREW ZEALLEY Themes & Variotions LP

“The score to Treleaven’s film on pandrogyny (starring Genesis P’Orridge and the late Lady Jaye Breyer), GOLD’s cycling vortex of digital and acoustic sounds is followed by two variations on the same melodic and tonal themes: APOTHEOSIS II (an early audio sketch for GOLD), and HABITAT THEME 2 (developed for Luis Jacob’s HABITAT installation at AGO). The plaintive love-pop electronics of SIGNAL, originally produced for Benny Nemerofsky Ramsay’s CONSTELLATION performance piece, is newly remixed by PSBEUYS for the album. The swirling dream-scape of SILVER, the score to Treleaven’s homage to John Dee (starring AA Bronson), is a seemingly endless sustain of electronics, violin and bell tones. ARENA, featuring the “beatbox” vocals of Luis Jacob, is the audio score to Joey Medaglia’s video RE: FORM (BECOMING VISIBLE). An alternate version of ARENA’s motifs can be heard on Zealley’s exhibition soundtrack, AA Bronson School For Young Shamans. THEMES & VARIATIONS concludes with the 3-part score for LUSTRE, Treleaven’s super8 tryptich starring Massimo & Pierce (Black Sun Productions). Here Zealley turns to a more classical interpretation of “themes and variations,” literally voicing the score’s tender melodic main theme (written for a local violin busker), through a series of pastoral string and oscillating electronic deconstructions.” Limited edition of 300, numbered and signed. Includes insert. Tourette, USA. £9.00
