DURUTTI COLUMN double cd set Chronicle LX : XL $42.99
Chronicle, by The Durutti Column, is released on Kooky as a very limited, special and expanded version to acknowledge Vini Reilly's 60th year of his life; thus Chronicle LX XL. The partly autobiographical album was first commissioned for a performance in April 2011 at The Bridgewater Hall in Manchester. During this period, Vini and Poppy (his girlfriend of 9 years) parted company and it was a heartbroken Vini that went on to complete the production. Despite the breakup, Poppy had agreed to perform on piano that evening for two of the songs that she had written with Vini accompanying on guitar. Over the following three years, the artist has battled serious illness and has not played a full show since. It was -- and still is -- a very difficult time physically, mentally and emotionally for Vini Reilly. The compositions reflect a particular stage in Vini's recent life. At the Bridgewater Hall show, a pre-release limited edition CD was available for that evening only, with a note by Vini explaining the background to the new work. Chronicle began as an autobiographical project, marking particular moments in Vini's past. Although elements of this surfaced in the original Chronicle, events in his life while recording the album brought a new twist to the project. Bruce Mitchell (drums and percussion): "So there are two versions of Chronicle. We did a special edition for the gig at the Bridgewater Hall, where people could get the album as part of a premium ticket deal. In 2011, we premiered the music there, with all Vini's photographs up on the screen. That was the last gig, really. The following day, Phil Cleaver from Kooky said he'd got back home to find his emails full of requests from the audience to buy one. So they all sold out, immediately. But soon afterwards Vin became really ill." "It was a big, expensive recording, Chronicle. And Vin, despite being ill, did this further version. So there's Chronicle 1 and Chronicle 2. What I wanted Vini to do as a composer was something similar to Elgar's "Enigma Variations" -- a piece of music about certain people in a life. I wanted him to do this and link the music to photographs he'd taken over the years. Vin's a great photographer." However, Reilly remains The Durutti Column's indisputable leader, and had the last say. Bruce continues: "I didn't quite get what I wanted, because in the end, Vini wanted the album to be about his life at this point in time. We couldn't finish it for a while because Vin was in such a bad way. But now it's there. And we've got some very interesting, very powerful music on this." In a package that continues The Durutti Column's tradition of innovation, this record is only available in special packaging containing personal images from the artist's camera and photographic collection. Continuing the autobiographical theme, the packaging acknowledges previous releases through parts of its design. A foil blocked burgundy textured clamshell box will contain: a full-color saddle-stitched booklet with an introduction by Bruce Mitchell and a collage of photographs from Vini's own personal collection. It also includes a printed sandpaper insert, a map (randomly selected one of six) redrawn in "Obey the Time purple and yellow" showing a place of importance to the artist, a grey card certificate in a custom envelope, and two CDs in pochettes. Each box set will have a map and grey card certificate. There are no plans to release this in any other format at present and this will be strictly limited to 1,000 copies only; worldwide. Features: Caoilfhionn Rose Birley (piano & vocals), Jill Taylor (vocals), Billy Rance (vocals), Keir Stewart (guitar, piano, harmonica), Vin Reilly (vocals, guitar), and Bruce Mitchell (drums).
Teenage Fanclub lp Man-Made on Merge $19.99
IN CELEBRATION OF 25 YEARS OF MERGE RECORDS! 1st time pressed to vinyl. Originally released in 2005, this is a classic Fanclub record in tone & arrangement, & handsomely demonstrates the "less is more" maxim -- it is both airier & more light of touch than it's immediate predecessors. 180gm w/ download.
Krakatau lp on Trouble in Mind $15.99
VINYL ONLY RELEASE on 150 gr MIXED COLOR VINYL
Comes w/ download. 3 tracks over the 10 min mark each. Melbourne, Australian band Krakatau's debut "Water Near A Bridge" seemingly have their origins before recorded
history, emerging from the primordial ooze & lurching towards your turntable like a creature out of Lovecraftian fiction. The guitar-less trio utilize organ, bass &
drums to communicate their message crafting dense & heady tunes sprung from the seeds of improvisation & honed to perfection in the studio
Leon, Craig lp S/T on RVNG, Intl $28.99
Issued respectively by John Fahey's Takoma record label in 1980 & Leon's Arbitor private press in 1982, Nommos & Visiting were the twin brainchildren of studio
wizard CRAIG LEON. His production was pivotal in realizing the debut recordings by Ramones, Blondie, Richard Hell & Suicide. While those albums broke
ground in new worlds of sound, Leon's own debut album was arguably, if not literally, more alien.
Liminanas cd S/T on Trouble In Mind $10.99
1st full length. There are traces of Serge Gainsbourg, Stereolab, Yeh-Yeh, & Nuggets-style, fuzz-driven freakouts. The
track "Down Underground" was featured in an episode of the network drama "Gossip Girl". The album has a cinematic feel, with it's recurring themes, lyrics & instrumantals, taking cues from influences like Gainsbourg's great "Histoire de Melody Nelson" album as well as the 1960s soundtracks they've become enamored with. Within the groovy & melancholy tracks, further listens (& a little quick translating) expose both the biogrpahic & the fantastic in these songs.
Soft Walls lp No Time (Mixed Color Vinyl) on Trouble in Mind $15.99
LTD ED of 200 MIXED COLOR VINYL VERSION comes w/ download
Brighton, UK's Dan Reeves is a busy guy. In addition to running his own label, Faux Discx Records & playing in the band Cold Pumas, he also records under the
moniker "Soft Walls". These 10 songs are meditiations on the passing of time itself & the pre-concieved notions (both external & internal) of what you can &
should be doing with it. Filled with avant-leaning psych drones, dreamy guitar ragas, motorik head-boppers, & pop tunes that shimmer enticingly, these are songs
to get lost in; to discover & re-discover. Don't worry - there's plenty of time.
FLAHERTY & CHRIS CORSANO, PAUL: Low Cost Space Flights LP $19.99
"It has been eight long years since we've had a new duo album by Paul Flaherty and Chris Corsano. The two have played together in other configurations, but we all know there has always been something special and telepathic about their duo collaborations. From the moment they began playing together late in the last century, Paul and Chris communicated in weird, deep ways. And so it is here. Low Cost Space Flights was recorded in June 2013, at Eric Gagne's 'Thing in the Spring Festival' in Peterborough, New Hampshire. And the duo wails through the three tracks. The room in which the performance happened has a nice natural echo, giving a sprongy edge to Flaherty's lateral sax runs, while Corsano's feverish percussion dives straight through every hoopsnake Paul rolls in his direction. No surprise. Chris is among the nimblest, most authoritatively athletic drummers to have graced the circles of fire music hell. And Flaherty remains, to my mind, a continuously under-rated player, largely because he's so rooted to his physical place in the universe that is New England. His style slips seamlessly from freak register space-squeedling to bar-walk honkery to a sort of chess player's motion-logic. Most of this set veers towards Paul's harder-blowing end of the spectrum and we say 'Halle-fuckin-lujah!' Leave the ballads to the bow ties, for now. Low Cost Space Flights reunites two great goddamn forces of the New England improv scene, and displays their playing at its hermetic, alloyed best. Beautiful Simon Bosse cover art. Great songs titles -- 'The Dog Paintings of George W. Bush,' etc. What's not to love? Besides lobsters, of course." --Byron Coley; Includes digital download code. Edition of 300.
ENGLISH, LAWRENCE: Wilderness of Mirrors LP $25.99
cd also available $17.99
LP version. Wilderness of Mirrors is the new album from Lawrence English. This album has been two years in the making and the first album created since the release of his 2011 ode to J.A. Baker's novel, The Peregrine. It is English's most tectonic auditory offering to date, an unrelenting passage of colliding waves of harmony and dynamic live instrumentation. The phrase, "wilderness of mirrors," draws its root from T.S. Eliot's elegant poem "Gerontion." During the Cold War, the phrase became associated with campaigns of miscommunication carried out by opposing state intelligence agencies. Within the context of the record, the phrase acted as a metaphor for a process of iteration that sat at the compositional core of the LP. Buried in each final piece, like an unheard whisper, is a singularity that was slowly reflected back upon itself in a flood of compositional feedback. Erasure through auditory burial. Wilderness of Mirrors also reflects English's interests in extreme dynamics and densities, something evidenced in his live performances of the past half decade. The album's overriding aesthetic of harmonic distortion reveals his ongoing explorations into the potentials of dense sonics. The album is moreover a reflection on the current exploitation of the ideals of the wilderness of mirrors, retuned and refocused from the politics of the state, to the politics of the modern multiplex. The amorphous and entangled nature of the modern world is one where thoughtless information prevails in an environment starved of applied wisdom. Wilderness of Mirrors is a stab at those living spectres (human and otherwise) that haunt our seemingly frail commitments to being humane. "We face constant, unsettled change," English notes, "It's not merely an issue of the changes taking place around us, but the speed at which these changes are occurring. We bear witness to the retraction of a great many social conditions and contracts that have previously assisted us in being more humane than the generations that precede us. We are seeing this ideal of betterment eroded here in Australia and abroad, too. This record is me yelling into what seems to be an ever-growing black abyss. I wonder if my voice will reflect off something?" Wilderness of Mirrors is reflection upon reflection, a pure white-out of absolute aurality. Some lesser-known facts about Lawrence English: he is a lightning strike survivor, he has swum in Antarctic waters (rescuing field recording equipment), he has photographed every bed he has slept in on tour since the early 2000s, he has stood at the site of an atomic blast (obviously not during the explosion), he maintains the Room40 label family, he was once described in concert as "Moses, parting waves," he is a strong advocate for the profundity of listening, and he lives with three humans, a dog and two fine black Australorps.
NOVELLER & THISQUIETARMY: Reveries LP $22.99
Reveries is the first collaborative effort of Noveller & Thisquietarmy, two critically-acclaimed lonesome composers welcoming us on an expanded guitar-based journey. Noveller is the solo project of Brooklyn-based composer Sarah Lipstate while Thisquietarmy is Eric Quach, unstoppable globe-trotting musician from Montreal. Both use the guitar as their main instrument, creating some of the most impressive, hypnotic, and richly-textured electric guitar works from the past years. Empty architecture, luminosity, rocks and deserted zones. Somewhere between Antonioni's Zabriskie Point and Tarkovsky's Stalker, there is a walk, a wait and an epiphany. It happened. You were not there. You just read it. Or maybe it's the synopsis of it. It's written on the back cover of a corny paperback that girl with the golden cap lost in the train you were just in. She was in a hurry. You'll never know its end, you just have to stick to the rocks and to the music. Tomorrow is another day and tonight might be the night. Recorded in January 2013 at Electric Blue Studios in Brooklyn, this new album finds Sarah & Eric in their most luminous and aerial state, writing together layers of blissful drones, resulting in a highly meditative and emotional four-part piece. Pressed on white vinyl in an edition of 500 copies worldwide.

SUN RA ARKESTRA: Live in Nickelsdorf 1984 3CD $34.99
The great Sun Ra Arkestra, live at Jazzgalerie Nickelsdorf, Austria on March 11th, 1984. This is a recording of the entire -- nearly three hour -- performance. Personnel for this show was Sun Ra (piano, synth, vocals); John Gilmore (tenor saxophone, clarinet, evi, vocals); Marshall Allen (alto saxophone, flute, kora, percussion); Danny Ray Thompson (baritone saxophone, flute, percussion); Eloe Omoe (Leroy Taylor) (alto saxophone, bass clarinet, percussion); James Jackson (basoon, flute, drums, vocals); Ronnie Brown (trumpet); Rollo Radford (standup bass); Don Mumford (drums); Matthew Brown (congas, dance); Myriam Broche (dance); Greg Pratt (dance).
HEAD BOGGLE: Serge Modular in Hi-Fi LP $22.99
"Head Boggle returns to the vinyl format with what is perhaps his most refined and focused work to date. Serge Modular in Hi-Fi was recorded in early 2012 at the S.F. City College Electronic Music Lab utilizing a vintage pre-STS Serge Modular Synth system and was conceived as a pseudo aural 'cubist' sound piece with an intention to achieve pseudo 3D 'cubed' sound through discrete recording and mixing techniques. The only effects utilized were four or more analog delays being played real-time a la dub/reggae mixing techniques. The final selections were then sent to Kramer at Noise Miami for hi-fi correction and an aesthetic mastering treatment and then to Jeremy Bible for a final mastering treatment specifically for the vinyl format resulting in a sonically rich listening experience of hallucinatory synthesizer ragas. Derek Gedalecia has commanded the attention of the avant/noise underground as Head Boggle or nearly a decade now, showcasing his unpredictable live performances and omnivorous synth mastery in DIY venues across the country -- and on over 60 physical releases on labels like Baked Tapes, 905 Tapes, Spectrum Spools, and his own Greedmink imprint. The Head Boggle catalog speeds into the future as a continuing experiment with new equipment, compositional processes, and live performance tactics, as each release pushes the boundaries of his gear and his mind into more and more maniacal post-post-Subotnick free-for-alls."
FIRE! ORCHESTRA: Enter 2LP $29.99
Gatefold double LP version. It can't be easy gathering 28 of Northern Europe's finest jazz and improvising musicians in one place at the same time, which is why Sweden's Fire! Orchestra has been one of the continent's best-kept secrets so far. After playing rare shows a handful of times a year, this incredible mass ensemble is getting ready to unleash its full power with Enter, its first studio recording. This isn't jazz: this is Nordic dynamite. Fire! originated as the trio of Swedish improv masters Mats Gusfasson (sax), Johan Berthling (bass) and Andreas Werliin (drums). None of them are what you could call jazz purists; they all play in many different groups and contexts, including The Thing (Gustafsson), experimental folk-electronica outfit Tape (Berthling), and skewed pop unit Wildbirds And Peacedrums (Werliin). Around 2011, the idea sprang up to expand a massive orchestra around the core trio, featuring the cream of Scandinavian jazz, improvisation and avant-rock players and vocalists. Key contributions come from keyboardists Sten Sandell, trumpeter Goran Kajfes (Oddjob, Subtropic Arkestra, Nordic Music Prize winner 2012), drummers Raymond Strid (GUSH, Barry Guy, Martin Küchen Ensemble) and Johan Holmegard (Dungen, The Amazing), guitarist David Stackenäs, electronicist Joachim Nordwall (Skull Defekts, iDEAL Records) and Fender Rhodes player Martin Hederos (Soundtrack Of Our Lives), to name just a few. Adding a crucial, soulful presence are the three vocalists Mariam Wallentin (Wildbirds And Peacedrums), Ethiopian singer Sofie Jernberg and Simon Ohlsson (Silverbullit). But Fire! Orchestra is a collective effort, with Gustafsson directing a tight, disciplined ensemble that enjoys its moments let off the leash. Following 2013's live debut Exit! (RCD 2138CD/RLP 3159LP), Enter is Fire! Orchestra's first time in the studio, and might surprise you with its slow, treacle-y funk dynamics, running through a kaleidoscope of moods, rhythms, and textures. Muscular rock rhythms flesh out texts written by singer Mariam Wallentin, inspired by the legendary free jazz saxophonist Joe McPhee, and sung in soured blues moans by the Orchestra's three-headed vocal team. Recalling the righteous big-band jazz of the late '60s by figures such as Charlie Haden, Sun Ra, Mike Westbrook and Chris McGregor, there are also echoes of Matana Roberts' recent jazz tapestries and the steamy psych-funk of Brightblack Morning Light. "Part Two" opens on a groove ripped from The Beatles' psychedelic classic "Tomorrow Never Knows." Using collective riffing at its finest, this is an epic suite that undergoes constant scene-shifts between relentlessly building rhythms, rising in emotional intensity as the furnace is stoked. Enter is about following your instincts, having the courage to step forwards into the unknown when the door is open. Death might be an exit, but it's also an entrance -- to a new, unimaginable state of being. The music acts out this cyclical pattern of living and dying, entering and exiting, and the finale winds down to the same reflective, introspective keyboard motif as it started with.
ALLESANDRO CORTINI lp Sonno on Hospital Productions $32.99
cd also available $16.99
Alessandro Cortini is best known as the lead electronics performer in Nine Inch Nails' live unit. His recordings under his own name have gained prominence in recent years and he has become known as one of the pre-eminent Buchla masters in North America. Cortini makes a surprising departure into the 202 on his debut album for Hospital Productions -- Sonno. Sonno was recorded in hotel rooms, using a Roland MC 202 through a delay pedal, recorded direct, sometimes into a small portable speaker system. "I liked to walk around the room with a handheld recorder to hear where the sequence would sound better, turn on faucets, open doors or windows to see how the ambient sounds would interact with the MC 202/delay/speaker sound. It was very relaxing and liberating to make music this way." The result is a beautifully restrained yet oddly emotive album that's quite distinct from the overly academic approach so often undertaken by hardware-driven devotees. Mastered by Matt Colton.
FURTHER REDUCTIONS lp Woodwork on Cititrax $25.99
"Cititrax is proud to present a full length LP by Brooklyn duo Further Reductions. Shawn O'Sullivan and Katie Rose formed Further Reductions in 2008 as an outlet for their shared passion of electronic dance music. O'Sullivan, known for his recent techno releases as Vapauteen on L.I.E.S., 400PPM on Avian and Civil Duty (with Beau Wanzer of Streetwalker) on The Corner has been quite active lately blurring the lines between techno and noise music. With Further Reductions, O'Sullivan's rhythmic sensibility is fused with Rose's pop leanings to create super lush and atmospheric tracks that work both on and off the dance floor. Informed by the sounds of classic techno and early house, they subtly substitute the structure of functional club music with a more primal absorption based in their unique collaboration. Seductive vocals coupled with organically evolving sequences create a complex narrative that penetrates the subconscious in a way that conventional club music rarely threatens to. Woodwork is an edition of 999 copies pressed on 160 gram clear vinyl with purple and silver splatter, presented in a high gloss printed LP jacket."

VA: Bollywood Bloodbath CD $14.99
2011 release. After what seems like a thousand years of blood, sweat, tears, and a lot more blood, your zombified disc disciples at Finders Kreepers unveil one of their most exquisite, exhumed, ectoplasmic, and existentially essential collections yet. This musical mausoleum of malformed freak funk and dreadful discothèque pop has been resurrected from the maligned cinematic subculture of Bombay's bloodthirsty horror film industry and witnesses the cognoscenti of the Bollywood pop scene at their most creative, destructive and experimentally effective. Bollywood Bloodbath features India's finest composers, such as Bappi Lahiri, RD Burman, Sonik Omi, Sapan Jogmohan and Laxmikant Pyarelal, making the kind of radical risk-rock that would under normal circumstances have studio security escorting these overworked maestros off set for a well-earned break or a relaxing exorcism. Take all the most oblique, indigenous characteristics of your favorite Bollywood musicals then condense them into a bubbling serum and watch the Jekyll and Hyde transformation commence as these A-list composers create bloodcurdling B-Music for the films they never thought the outernationals would see or hear. You've heard Italy's most famous composers when they soundtrack unwatchable Roman slasher flicks with uncompromised and underpaid terms? Well that blueprint just turned blood-red with sub-shoestring, low-budget studio wizards gambling with rigamortis rock, disjointed disco and low-voltage electronics for seldom-screened scenes of desi-Draculas, lycanthropic lady-killers and psyched-up swamp monsters. Ever wondered what the DJ would play in a 1981 luxury hotel that was built on an ancient Christian cemetery? No? Well it sounds like someone just got possessed by Jimmy Page and Nile Rogers at the same time. Help! But séance fiction aside, the factual history of the untraveled Bollywood horror phenomena is fully re-exhumed with this compendium in true faithful Finders Keepers style. Carefully documenting the drummy theme from the first-ever 1949 Indian ghost film, this benchmark collection follows the sinister lineage as directors of bloody thrillers take chances on shuddering synopsis and haywire sonic special effects. Leading up to the inauguration of the notorious Ramsay Bros film company (whose sibling revelry in the '70s and '80s led to the inclusion of flight-style puke bags in participating picture houses) this compilation pulls no punches and plunges the "B" of Bombay into the heart of the b-movie and squirts a masala of bloody ketchup and red wine onto the sets of Bollywood's glorious filmic musicals. Licensed exclusively from the independent Indian film music companies (revealing incidental tracks that they didn't even know they owned) Bollywood Bloodbath is the result of avid stomach-turning research via VHS tapes, chewed-up cassettes, and LPs, 12''s and 45s remastered from some of the only existing master tapes.
MOGOROSI, TUMI: Project ELO LP on Jazzman $25.99
LP version with UK '60s style laminate sleeve. Breathtaking contemporary spiritual jazz from South Africa. When Tumi Mogorosi composed this suite for jazz musicians and opera vocalists, he had never heard the previous successful attempts by Donald Byrd, Max Roach or Mary Lou Williams to combine these seemingly "unfriendly" aesthetics. Tumi, born in 1987 and already an accomplished drummer on the Jo'Burg scene, was at the time studying music at the Tshwane University of Pretoria where he became close friends with opera singers working on the same campus. So unlike some of his U.S. peers, Tumi's beliefs are not "religious." Surprisingly, Tumi's suite wasn't influenced by these great elders' masterpieces, but anyone who listens to this album will agree that the suite captures the soaring spirituality that made these experiments of the '60s the beloved classics that they are today. Tumi does not belong to any religious group. This album is neither a jazz mass like Mary Lou Williams' Black Christ of the Andes, nor a compilation of devotional pieces like Donald Byrd's Christo Redentor. Project ELO stands for Project Elohim, the angelic entities of the spiritual scriptures which are, in the drummer's philosophy, a symbol for accomplished human beings. The spirituality the album conveys is attuned to a 21st century syncretic, non-dogmatic vision infused with esotericism. Recorded live with no overdubs in two days by a group of friends, this album captures a moment of Eternity and will defy any idea you may have of what South African jazz is. Tumi's music transcends labels and styles. When composing or playing he is only concerned with being true to the primordial source of life, which cannot be confined to any genre.
VA: The Beat from Badsville Vol. 2: More Trash Classics from Lux and Ivy's Vinyl Mountain CD $17.99
Originally released on a double 10" vinyl album in February 2013, here's the CD version of the second volume of the Beat from Badsville series. Contains the same songs as the 2x10" vinyl. "Music is a voyage of strange opportunity. Out there, if you look hard enough, you'll find crazed visionaries, half-deaf creatives, lunatics let loose with whistles, juvenile delinquents with a notepad and pen and people who, quite frankly, have no time for the theory of pop. Thank God! This collection brings together two dozen songs by such people -- tunes that don't fall into any easy categories and give short shrift to the context of 'classic' or traditional songwriting. As usual with Beat from Badsville, the collection is divided into four 'themes' -- this time we have: 'Spooky Doo Wop and Insane Harmonies'; 'Angry Babes Getting Even'; 'Rumbling Rhythms and Wildcat Whistling'; Chickens and Other Party Animals.' This is the stuff of legend, the Beat from Badsville. All of these tunes have been raved over by The Cramps' legendary Lux and Ivy through various radio shows and interviews over the years. Capturing the excitement that comes from discovering a spine-tingling or simply 'out there' record, Lux and Ivy have inspired many a generation to dig deep in the crates and uncover all kinds of strange music. This collection is an exotic trip into the off-kilter world of recordings, many of them independent, which sprang up all over the U.S. during the '50s. It's filled with sounds that will stop you in your tracks and the best news is, there's so much more out there. Keep digging." --Dave Henderson, MOJO
BURROUGHS, WILLIAM S.: Break Through In Grey Room LP $17.99
2014 repress, originally released in 2008. One of the most classic and in-demand titles in the Sub Rosa catalog -- mid-'60s cut-up tape machine recordings made by William S. Burroughs in hotels -- originally released on CD in 1987, reissued in 2001, released on vinyl in a gatefold sleeve. During the 1960s, Burroughs was in Europe and England. The Vietnam War, the cultural revolution, hippies and the acid gospel, the U.S. in tumult -- all these were dispatches to him. Living between Paris and London, his only excursions to America were in 1965, when he lived a year in New York at the Chelsea Hotel and 210 Centre Street, and revisited St. Louis and Palm Beach; and in 1968, when he covered the Democratic Convention in Chicago for Esquire in the company of Genet, Southern and Seaver. Burroughs had quit the States in 1953 exactly because he foresaw these police-state conditions. But now the wild boys were in the streets, in London and Paris too, and Burroughs was inspired to hope that the world could really change. In the creative world/switchboard of Paris' Beat Hotel, in London, in a house in the Arab Quarter of Tangier, he experimented with tape recordings -- under the tutelage of Brion Gysin -- hoping to cut the pre-recorded time line of present time, and, as he put it, "let the future leak out." It's impossible not to recognize the writer's sonorous voice -- a sonority also present within the silence of every text he wrote. An explosion of styles -- a blasting of borders -- the silence after a gunshot -- the overtaking of the fetishized word -- from the exploded painting, to the cut tape. Break Through In Grey Room includes various monologues, radio shortwaves, music, and countless cut-up tape from which emerges new structures of communication. Words gain power when losing the boundaries of semantics. Also included is some Joujouka music recorded by Burroughs while he was with Ornette Coleman in the hills of Morocco, circa 1973. Many of these tapes are as much Ian Sommerville's work as Burroughs, or even more so. Ian's technical background is a tribute to the early development of sound-and-light shows in London. Ian was a sorcerer's apprentice in creating recordings. This is an important sound document in the history of Burroughs as an innovator, as well as an archive of the genesis of literature in opposition during a time-period whose urgency is more relevant than ever.
DIGITAL DANCE: Total Erasement LP $17.99
Life and death of a Belgian cult band Digital Dance comin' directly from the Brussels punk scene. Prior to forming Digital Dance in Brussels, in the summer of 1978, Jerry WX (voice and guitar) and Stephan Barbery (guitar) were closely involved in the local punk scene. Jerry WX played with Chainsaw, the very first Brussels punk band in 1976, and a year later with X-Pulsion. Stephan Barbery played with Thrills from 1977 to 1978. During this period, X-Pulsion, Thrills, and a third band called Streets played many gigs together, often swapping instruments and members. (See Sub Rosa's recent Punk in Brussels 1977-1979 compilation). Despite their difficult reputation and lack of commercial success, Digital Dance built up a cult following, even having the support of John Peel in the UK. Between 1979 and 1981, Digital Dance released three singles and performed several notable live concerts as an opening act for Magazine and Siouxsie And The Banshees. The various members subsequently played in groups as diverse as Fad Gadget, Marine, The Revenge, Kid Montana, Noh Mask, The Names, Snowy Red, The Weathermen, etc. Digital Dance performed their last live show in 1981. There was no definite end of the band but they didn't play together between 1982 and 1998. Sadly, Jerry died in 2000. Last, but not least, the punk years in Brussels generated many fanzines. Digital Dance also published Digital Magazine. This LP includes the very last and unreleased issue of Digital Magazine. Pressed on limited marbled black and silver vinyl. Includes an insert.
MEGATON: Megaton CD $14.99
One of the best and most representative albums of early '80s Mexican metal. Megaton's self-titled album features great metal vocals in Spanish and constant chugging power chords and heavy riffing that show a clear influence from bands of the new wave of British heavy metal like Iron Maiden, Saxon, and MotÃ¶rhead. In terms of musicianship, this group was certainly on par with their influences and any fan of metal from this era will find much to like here.
BLACKSHAW, JAMES: Fantomas: Le Faux Magistrat CD $14.99
"In celebration of the centenary of Louis Feuillade's Fantomas silent film series, James Blackshaw was invited by Yann Tiersen to perform a live score to the fifth and final film, Le Faux Magistrat, at the beautiful and prestigious surroundings of the Theatre de Chatelet, Paris on October 31, 2013. Fantomas -- a master of disguise and symbol of terror -- is one of the most popular characters in French crime fiction, as well as a favorite with the avant-garde, particularly the surrealists. Tim Hecker, Amiina, Yann Tiersen and Loney Dear also performed during the event (which was broadcast live on the European ARTE channel) each bringing their own unique sonic perspective to the other installments. Written during the course of a few months, Blackshaw drew influences from French impressionist composers, Brazilian guitar music, musique concrete and the works of other film composers such as David Shire and Pino Donaggio, to create a noir-ish score that is in turns sinister, quietly profound and thrilling. Personally invited by James Blackshaw, experimental musician Duane Pitre and Simon Scott (also of Slowdive) contributed drums, electronics, synth, bowed guitar, bass and more to Blackshaw's nylon string guitar and grand piano, with multi-instrumentalist Charlotte Glasson adding violin, vibraphone and several wind instruments to the 75-minute long work."

Gatefold double LP version.
EDVARD GRAHAM LEWIS: All Over LP $22.99
LP version. Editions Mego is proud to present the first recordings by Edvard Graham Lewis released this century. Having made his name in legendary punk/experimental outfits Wire, Dome and He Said, Lewis has developed an exceptional voice with ceaseless exploration of a wide variety of musical forms. All Over is a song-based album that resides amongst the cracks between narrative and song, sound and music. Cloaked in an atmosphere of beauty and paranoia, All Over conjures the spirit of Wire's experimental pop trajectory while simultaneously exploring a multitude of sonic possibilities. Gritty mechanical operations support Lewis' wry human observations in a uniquely disturbing mélange of punk, industrial, techno and pop. A dream logic plays throughout All Over, courtesy of Lewis' odd lyrical content being set with all manner of disorientating sound and rhythm. All tracks were written and composed between 2003-2013 in parallel with the works included on All Under. Several contributors generously collaborated at distance from L.A., Japan, Scotland, Italy, Germany, UK and Sweden, furthering this catchy excursion into the unstable grid of the 21st century. All Over is a major amalgamation of music, media, man and mind. Contributors: Howardamb (bartered tones, tracks 2,4,11); Andreas Karperyd (electronics, track 1); Linda Dahl (vocal, track 5); Jim Ascroft, Fabrizio Clemenza, and Giovanni Romano (vocal, track 5); P.T. Kirk (additional electronics, track 9); Jan Lundquist (lead vocal, track 12). Mastered by Russell Haswell. Cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering in Berlin.
EDVARD GRAHAM LEWIS: All Under LP $22.99
LP version. All Under, the companion release to All Over compiles soundtracks to films, installations and a self-penned short story. This is familiar terrain for Edvard Graham Lewis, who, along with Bruce Gilbert, produced the early interactive audio-visual installation "MZUI" at London's Waterloo Gallery in 1981. Since this period, Lewis has been involved in countless soundtracks to all manner of cultural artefacts. The haunting score to Gunilla Leander's 2003 short film All Under was improvised in real time with a sampler and FX processing and recorded onto mini disc. The results are a viscous ambience of swirls, feedback and distortion. This material was then adapted for an immersive three-screen installation of the same visual material which features combinations of six nude bodies (four men, two women) fighting and wrestling, filmed underwater. The soundtrack here crawls further in the depths as electronic phrases swim amongst a foreboding ambience. Both of these works encapsulate the same disembodied effect of the visual material as hovering, uncanny sound worlds seep into the listener's subconscious. "The Eel Wheeled" features Lewis reading one of his own bizarre stories underscored with a suitably disorienting soundtrack sourced from sound effects of the Prime Sounds SFX Library. This version was remixed by Thomas Öberg (member of Bob Hund and 27#11). "No Show Godot" concludes the set. A soundtrack to a "sky movie" (road movies be warned) completed in 2013. Coming out of the initial sub-aquatic environments of the opening works, "No Show Godot" takes us on a spiraling high before folding into a gritty, godly industrial mantra which comes along as a perfect means of tying up these two concurrent releases as a symmetrical whole. Track #3 is a remixed version by Thomas Öberg. Track 4: Pauline Svanerö (vocals), P.T. Kirk (additional drones). Mastered by Russell Haswell. Cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering in Berlin.
NILS FRAHM: Screws LP $22.99
Berlin-based pianist Nils Frahm presents a 30 minute mini-album to his fans. Nils experienced an unfortunate accident, which saw him fall from his bunk bed located directly above his studio, which resulted in a broken thumb. But through inspiration from his fans and despite the four screws that had just been surgically placed inside his thumb, he started recording with nine fingers, which later resulted in nine intimate piano recordings. In his own words: "Even though my doctor told me not to touch a piano for a while, I just couldn't resist. I started playing a silent song with 5 fingers on my right and the remaining 4 on my left hand. I set up one microphone and recorded another tune every other night before falling asleep. The day I got rid of my cast I had recorded nine little songs. They have helped me feel less annoyed about my accident and reminded me that I can only achieve something good, when I make the most of what I've got." Nils Frahm has become known for his unconventional approach to an age-old instrument as well as his collaborations with contemporaries such as Ólafur Arnalds, Peter Broderick (as Oliveray) and Efterklang.
VA: Traces Three LP $24.99
Recollection GRM, a label within the Editions Mego family of labels, offers a third selection from the vast archives of Groupe De Recherches Musicales (GRM). The main idea behind the Traces series is to excavate short, forgotten or ignored pieces of music from the GRM Archives. This third volume, gathering pieces from before 1980, features the works of four composers from very different geographical and musical backgrounds. In addition to echoing the extraordinary vitality of musical experiments from a bygone era, Traces aims to give some audibility to music pieces which, in some instances, are being released for the very first time.
Charles Clapaud, "Ruptures" (1978): "The idea of the break (rupture) as a disruptive phenomenon should be integrated into discourses and perceived musically: to break the silence, a matter, shapes, plans... in this musical piece, two main parts can clearly be identified: in the first part, the chaotic activity of the sound material (crumbled, fragmented, discontinuous forms) blossoms into a static burst. A sustained deep tone settles within a sort of 'Cadence' and highlights a solo sequence of discontinuous sound 'lines.' The entire sound spectrum then erupts, abruptly interrupted by three loud blasts. In the second part, the fragmented form unfolds as a whole initial sequence, followed by a second one where other forms overlap in a kind of sound collage that induces emergent phenomena. The piece ends as a sharp break." --C.C.
Janez Mati?i? , "Hypnos" (extrait de Trois Visions) (1975): "This non-progressive piece is composed of several sequences, each introducing an additional element and ending with a twist. A quiet swaying from one framework to the next constantly defines the sound quality of the piece, just like blurry visions tantalize the dreamer one after another." --J.M.
Servio Tulio Marin, "Impresiones Fugitivas" (1976): "This piece is based on the process of sound as a solid material. The shape and height of a concrete, granular texture (very similar to white noise) is being transformed. While still unfolding, this process is being interrupted at several stages by various interfering elements with opposite natures. This gives rise to a complex dialogue between distinct materials, like a counterpoint expressed through sound spatialization." --S.T.M.
Eugeniusz Rudnik, "Moulin Diabolique" (1979): "The work consists of six sequences which all possess a dramatic, musical and architectonic sense independent from the context. Their position in the composition as a whole -- apart from sequences 2 and 6 -- is not derived from any absolute necessity. The basic material of this work consists of military orders given in different languages and of the sounds (voices) of a human group (soldiers). These -- assuming the order implies a constraint -- can either be the single answer to such a constraint or they can accompany it. Through editing, the sense of military discipline was removed from the ordering sentences, thus enhancing the grotesque and terrible content of the order itself. [ ... ] The possibility of identifying the sound sources (speech = order with its semantic, semiotic and associated values), the formal structure of the composition is to remind the listener of the constant presence by his side of the Evil Mill (Moulin Diabolique) of war. A mill that has been turning on and on for thousands of years -- and for how much longer? I dedicated this work to my daughter Kamila Maria." --E.R.
DAVIS, BETTY: This Is It! 2LP $29.99
Double LP version. 2005 release. The former wife of Miles, Betty Mabry Davis is perhaps the only woman in the world who could rightfully have the following legend tattooed across her rear: THIS ASS INVENTED FUSION. While their marriage only lasted a year (1968-1969), Betty pointed the way to Miles, introducing him to the musical and material gods of revolutionary style: Jimi Hendrix and Sly Stone, which would have an enormous impact on his electrified musical Frankenfusion masterpiece known as Bitches Brew. Betty ruled as the mentor-muse for the original man and his music. She was a woman with the strength of a Black Panther, a "nasty" woman in total control, but unfortunately for Betty, America was not yet ready to embrace a woman with such an explicitly sexual persona. She had a much rougher edge to her music than other female funk and soul artists of the '70s. Betty Davis' is one of the most extreme sounding debut records of the decade, which just like Bitches Brew takes equal parts inspiration from Hendrix and Sly. One critic aptly described their sound as something like a cross between Tina Turner, Funkadelic, and Sly & The Family Stone. Add the futurist fashion sense of David Bowie, and the flair of Miles Davis, and you have quite a cocktail. This is the best of Betty Davis' three much-sought albums.
Gingerlys 7" Jumprope EP on Shelflife $8.49
NYC's newest pop sweethearts, Gingerlys, present their debut EP. Described as "pure ear candy," the EP starts off with "Jumprope" which quickly introduces what Gingerlys are all about - songs filled with fuzzy guitars, dreampop melodies, guitar hooks galore & Maria Garnica's soft sultry vocals. The B-side opens with the head-rush breakneck speed of "Better Hearts" & closes with the delightful Felt-ish guitars of "Set You Off".
Lewis lp L'Amour on Light in the Attic $20.99
LP housed in deluxe Stoughton "Tip-On" gatefold jacket w/ download. In 1983, a man named Lewis recorded an album named L'Amour, which was released on the unknown label R.A.W. & that's about all we know. The ingredients are simple: smooth synthesizers, feather-light piano, ethereal, occasionally inaudible vocals & the gentle plucking of acoustic guitars. But the effects are arresting: a spine-tingling, sombre album that echoes Springsteen's Nebraska or Angelo Badalamenti's atmospheric soundtracks. Later, Arthur Russell would grasp for something similar on the epochal World Of Echo LP.
Godflesh 12" Decline & Fall on Avalanche $19.99
Recordings 23 minute EP containing 4 brand new tracks, their 1st original recordings since 2001's Hymns.

RADIGUE, ELIANE: Feedback Works 1969-1970 LP $31.99
2014 repress. Alga Marghen very proudly presents a remastered version of the complete documentation of Eliane Radigue sound installations from 1969-1970, including the broad tectonic vibrations of "Omnht," the celestial voices of "Usral," the massive chant of "Stress Osaka," and more -- the works of this artist's feedback period finally revealed. It is amazing that Radigue could build such formidably organic sonic edifices in her home studio with the primitive machines given to her by Pierre Henry: three tape recorders, a mixing board, an amplifier, two loudspeakers and a microphone. Eliane previously worked for Henry at the Studio d'Essai of the R.T.F. from 1955 to 1957, after having met Pierre Schaeffer almost by chance, who invited her to learn the techniques of musique concrÃ¨te. Created 10 years after her Studio d'Essai experience, the feedback works of Eliane Radigue immediately take a new direction from the explorations of musique concrÃ¨te. Her adventure intuitively goes towards flux, towards contemplative stasis -- a music of continuous sounds, of apparently simple structures, which permits the revelations and expansion of rich acoustic phenomena. It is as if her musical work was in some way a martial art -- as if she meditated for 10 years before striking the first blow, with impressive precision. This is the context in which Eliane composed "Omnht" in 1970 for the architectonic spaces of the visual artist Tania Mouraud titled "One More Night," presented at the Gallery of the Rive Gauche in Paris; "Usral" (the title comes from a phonetic compression of ultrasounds slowed-down, in French "ultra-sons ralentis") is one of the first works by Eliane Radigue to be given in public as a sound environment for a sculpture by Marc Halpern in the Salon des Artistes DÃ©corateurs at the Grand Palais of Paris in 1969; "Stress-Osaka" was conceived when the artist was invited to create a sonic environment for the International Fair in Osaka in 1970. There is no doubt that Eliane Radigue's vocabulary is based on observing and entering into dialog with the fundamental behavior of sounds: pulsing, beating, sustained, very light -- a subtle and delicate evolution. When she moved from feedback sounds to the ARP synthesizer, she naturally continued the same music, a continuity where the original use of feedback sounds stands out for its cruder and more savage inner character. One could say that somehow it's the very texture of the sounds, which leads the form of her compositions. Includes a 16-page LP-size booklet with original photos, scores and liner notes.
RADIGUE, ELIANE: Vice-Versa, Etc... LP $27.99
2014 repress. Alga Marghen very proudly presents a remastered version of Vice-Versa, Etc..., an LP originally included in the first 400 copies of Eliane Radigue's Feedback Works 2LP. Vice-Versa, Etc... was originally a small handmade box, signed and numbered and released on the occasion of a show at Lara Vincy's gallery in 1970. The box contained a reel of magnetic tape and the instructions for use. It indicates that all playback speeds are possible, forward or backward, as well as any combination of two channels, on several recorders, ad libitum. This LP presents two versions done by Emmanuel Hoelterbach following the indications of Eliane Radigue to the letter, respecting her composition methods. There is no doubt that Eliane Radigue's vocabulary is based on observing and entering into dialog with the fundamental behavior of sounds: pulsing, beating, sustained, very light, a subtle and delicate evolution. When she moved from feedback sounds to the ARP synthesizer, she naturally continued the same music -- a continuity where the original use of feedback sounds stands out for its cruder and more savage inner character. One could say that somehow it's the very texture of the sounds, which leads the form of her compositions. At the same time, this approach favors an intense sensuality in the listening.
RADIGUE, ELIANE: Opus 17 2LP $45.99
2014 repress. Alga Marghen very proudly presents Opus 17, a major turning-point in the sonic oeuvre of Eliane Radigue. Finished in 1970, it was the last work composed with feedback materials. From that experimental period, Opus 17 preserves a plastic character: a music made of rough sonic phenomena, at once harsh and granular, possessing a quality of materiality and tactility. Its vibrations structure the air surrounding the listener with densities, thicknesses, indeed with palpable movement. Her compositions are frames which let us hear these phenomena, open frameworks from the sonic installations of her Endless Musics and here reinserted in the five scenes making up Opus 17. In 1970, in her studio of very rudimentary means, she developed a completely unique body of work centered on sounds produced by feedback. Opus 17 has the quality of showing off the sum of the achieved techniques and methods. Eliane Radigue's music has never been rooted in ideas but in practice, the intimate experience of things in the wild which she has known how to tame. This dialog both intense and poetic which she keeps up with the solid matter of sound finds a remarkable concretization in Opus 17. It is to be underlined that with Opus 17 Eliane Radigue inaugurates a technique of composition which will be her footprint, her trademark: imperceptible transformations. For that she has developed a technique of meticulous mixings, based on the slow passage from one section to the next. Imperceptible all during the piece, we pass, ceaselessly and without noticing the changes, from one frequency flux to another. Time is suspended, smoothed out, stretched. It is this technique which Eliane Radigue will be essentially using for all the electronic works to come and which she will never cease to refine and render always more subtle. Opus 17 is the great panoramic voyage through material sound, its electronic phenomena detailed as if in a microscope. As Rhys Chatham recalls: "Eliane Radigue (...) had just moved to New York and had the idea of acquiring an analog modular synthesizer, which is why she worked at NYU in order to try out the possibilities of the Buchla 100 series which we had there. One day, while gossiping, she invited me to her loft, which was just on the corner. She had me listen to a piece composed in France; the piece called 'Opus 17'. (...) What I heard changed to course of my life as a composer. (...) That piece, impressive source of inspiration, gave the impression of being in a grand cathedral, both for the sensation of immensity of being in such a large cathedral, as for the effect of being so close to God." Opus 17 was created at the artistic center of Verderonne on May 23, 1970, for the FÃªte en blanc (i.e. White Festival) organized by the visual artists Antoni Miralda, Joan Rabascall, DorothÃ©e Selz and Jaume Xifra. Previously unreleased,
IMAGINARY SOFTWOODS: The Path of Spectrolite CD $18.99
Archives IntÃ©rieures re-releases The Path of Spectrolite by John Elliott's Imaginary Softwoods project. The Path of Spectrolite is a gorgeous, light-emitting exploration into dazzling musical colors. Starting with the opener "Entrance Through Selenite Pillars," John Elliot takes the listener into a highly textural musical space. Synth melodies shift into drones, evoking shimmering rays of supernatural light. "Eye Color" opens the spectrum even more, allowing a glimpse into a musical universe where past psychedelic traditions team up with a contemporary approach to composition. John Elliott treats his sounds with the utmost care and dedication. He allows plenty of openings for the listener to join in and take the trip down the chosen path. Through their respective multi-colored lenses, "Rainbow Obsidian Key" and "Globe II" are compositions which succeed in existing perfectly in the present moment. In the second phase of the album we arrive at "Black Water and Ice," the first track which presents a vague hint of percussion. It slowly progresses into a lush, string-based texture. Finally, "Crystal Pond" leads us into the last part of the trip. Its swirling notes evoking a sense of elegant liberation, of final transcendence and arrival. Archives Inte?rieures decided to re-release The Path of Spectrolite because the label feels it is an absolutely essential album. As a work of art it is almost confrontational in its honesty. Elliott's approach to attain an absolutely clear and focused sense of natural beauty and spiritualism is breathtaking. As no other, he knows how music and sound connect us to a wider perspective. Therefore, Archives Inte?rieures feels it is essential to give this album another push after its initial vinyl release on Amethyst Sunset in 2011.
JACK RUBY: Jack Ruby LP $20.99
"Back when Thurston and I were working on our book about the New York No Wave scene, a key mystery we hoped to unravel was the one surrounding the band Jack Ruby. I knew George Scott had been in the band, along with Chris Gray, but we were never able to nail down any hard info. Lydia Lunch and Rudolph Grey both had blazing memories of their weirdness, originality and power, but no one could turn up anything solid. Time passed, the book came out and -- chuffed by the fact we'd name-checked the band in the book -- some of the participants began to emerge. Weasel Walter got his hands on a great tape of material which he released on CD (most of which is reprised here), and bits and pieces of the band's story continued to roll out. They'd actually formed in 1973 with Boris Policeband on electric viola and Randy Cohen on Serge synthesizer. The two pretty much constant members were guitarist Gray and singer Robin Hall. They'd done a demo for Epic. The original band never played live, etc., kind of crazy. Then a batch of old tapes was found in Pennsylvania. We sent them to Don Fleming who transferred and catalogued them for us, and we were totally blown away by what he was uncovering. 'Hit and Run' and 'Mayonnaise' are the original line-up recorded in a small Times Square Studio. Boris left after that and they recorded the Epic session as a trio. That's 'Bored Stiff,' 'Bad Teeth,' and 'Sleep Cure.' The other songs were recorded by the later, performing version of the band with Chris and George and another (all but anonymous) person or two. They played five live shows, featuring crawling dolls, buzzing dildos and the cracked Rocket From The Tombs sort of sound they'd evolved. The last one was in November '77 at Max's with Vivienne Dick's then-boyfriend, Stephen Barth on vocals. And the shit may be lo-fi at times, but it is genuinely fucked and a real pleasure to hear nonetheless." --Byron Coley; Edition of 600. Includes download code with purchase. Volume Two coming soon.
JEFFREY LEE PIERCE SESSIONS PROJECT, THE: We Are Only Riders CD $17.99
2009's We Are Only Riders is more than just a "various artists" compilation. It's a musical collective of artists who have come together to interpret (and in some cases, complete) unfinished skeletal works by Jeffrey Lee Pierce, an artist they were friends with or whose work they admired. Artists featured on the album include Nick Cave, who has done his own solo track, as well as dueting with Debbie Harry, and playing piano on Debbie's solo track, and added backing vocals on the Cypress Grove track. Mick Harvey contributed to two of the Nick Cave tracks and has recorded a solo track. Barry Adamson plays bass on the Nick Cave solo track and also on the Mark Lanegan solo track, who has also recorded a duet with Isobel Campbell. Kid Congo Powers contributed to Nick Cave's and Lydia Lunch's tracks. About three years ago while clearing out his attic, Tony Cmelik (aka Cypress Grove) came across a bag of dusty old cassettes. He started to sort through them and found one marked "JLP Songs." As soon as he put it on he remembered what it was; Tony & Jeffrey rehearsing material for the album they made together (Ramblin' Jeffrey Lee and Cypress Grove with Willie Love). The album was initially going to contain country songs, but it gradually evolved into a full-blown blues album. It was recorded on an old boombox in Tony's bedroom, just the two of them on acoustic guitars. The sound quality was terrible, but good enough to make out the songs, which were excellent. Tony thought it would be fascinating to hear how different artists might interpret these songs as well as other found Jeffrey Lee Piece material from this most basic and crude of templates, the cassette. Other artists include: The Raveonettes, David Eugene Edwards, The Sadies, Crippled Black Phoenix, Johnny Dowd, and Dave Alvin.
JEFFREY LEE PIERCE SESSIONS PROJECT, THE: We Are Only Riders 2LP $39.99
Gatefold double LP version. Pressed on 180 gram vinyl.
SHIVERS: Shivers CD $16.99
Shivers is the trio of Rutger Zuydervelt (Machinefabriek), Gareth Davis and Leo Fabriek, who join forces to conjure up a surreal album of parasitic intimacy and intensity. Though the three have played and recorded together in various combinations, this Miasmah release marks their first output as Shivers and manages to pull out quite a few surprises. Named after David Cronenberg's first film, Shivers the album readily adopts this concept of body horror, the fear of bodily transformation and infection -- a theory and technique that Cronenberg brilliantly captures with his first film and many thereafter. An aural invader immediately travels through your ears into your body, to infiltrate your soul with gory supernatural sci-fi. Crawling through the thick sludge of "Ash" and into the chaotic "Otomo," you're treated with what sounds like a beyond-the-grave collaboration of Albert Ayler with Alva Noto producing the soundtrack to Transformers. From entering "Rabid," a chorus of intense destructive voices leads you blindfolded to an abandoned spot amidst a buzz of florescent lights. Here you're abducted into a new life hundreds of years into the future, moving you through stumbling jazz, John Carpenter-styled themes, repeating organ-beats, and Moroccan doom. The psychological and physical combine to make Shivers a collective understanding of the grotesque, fascinating, and personal. You might not be the same.
CHESWORTH, DAVID: The Unattended Serge 1978/Five Evolutionary Things 1979 LP $25.99
The 20 years-old young David Chesworth experiments with the gigantic Serge synth that occupies half the room of the Latrobe University electronic studio. On the traces of pioneers such as Tristram Cary or Warren Burt, a new avant-garde is blooming in Sidney and Melbourne with bands like Severed Heads, The Makers, The Loop Orchestra, and the like. David Chesworth will soon play a major role by coordinating the Clifton Hill Community Music Centre in Melbourne, by co-founding the cult label Innocent Records and by playing in acts such as Essendon Airport, The Dave And Phil Duo, ? ? ?, as well as conducting a solo career. He would later become one of the leading figures in contemporary sculpture and sound installation in Australia and abroad and a recognized and awarded composer with his The David Chesworth Ensemble. His first solo LP titled 50 Synthesizer Greats! was released in 1979 and recorded in the same period as the LP presented here. While his first LP is a compilation of very short and eclectic tracks, "Five Evolutionary Things 79" and "The Unattended Serge 78" are structured as suites. Drawing skeletons for pop tunes to come, these minimal electronic pieces are at times very experimental but never brutal, reminding of the best moments of Udder Milk Decay's Take a Teat or sharing the apparent naÃ¯ve melancholia of Harmonia's Musik Von Harmonia. Hints of elegant musique concrÃ¨te Ã la FranÃ§ois Bayle can be heard, but also out of space blip-beats, as if Pietro Grossi or Erkki Kurenniemi went groovy. This beautiful, unknown gem of ozzy underground is now available for your ears in an edition limited to 300 copies.
FUSINATO, MARCO: Spectral Arrows: Sydney LP $25.99
Spectral Arrows is an ongoing series of long-duration performances for guitar and electronics. In Spectral Arrows, Marco Fusinato arrives at the venue when it opens for business, sets up his equipment facing a wall and proceeds to play for the whole day until the end of business hours. Fusinato presents himself here in the guise of a worker, clocking on and unceremoniously clocking off at the end of the working day, refusing to allow the behind-the-scenes mystery of rehearsals and preparations to lend an aura to the performance, and affirming the deskilled ethos of his work. For the audience, the length of the performance frustrates the expectation of a manageable form, forcing all but the hardiest audience members to content themselves with only a fragment of the whole. Even for those who stick it out, the extended duration, like in the late works of Morton Feldman, destroys the listener's ability to retain and assess the structure of the performance. Breaking with both the traditional form of the musical performance and, through Fusinato's resolutely anti-social position facing away from the audience, the standard affective relationship between audience and performer, the sound of Spectral Arrows becomes a monumental aural sculpture, filling the space, not with steel or concrete, but with vibrations traveling through air. Spectral Arrows: Sydney was recorded at Artspace Sydney in 2012 during "The Color of the Sky Has Melted," a survey exhibition of Fusinato's recent projects. Fusinato performed facing a large, purpose-built wall that bisected the exhibition space and displayed his "Double Infinitives" series. Fusinato's sculpture "Aetheric Plexus," which unleashes 13,000 watts of white light and a 105db blast of white noise when triggered by the audience was active in the space during the performance and provides an aleatoric counterpoint throughout the recording. The crushing volume and harshness of the performance is intensified throughout by the reverberant gallery space, which creates a swirling, almost psychedelic effect as Fusinato's sounds bounce from wall to wall. Spectral Arrows: Sydney, issued in an edition of 200 copies, condenses a six-hour performance into under 40 minutes. Compared to the rapid-fire cut-ups of Spectral Arrows: Rotterdam (issued by De Player in 2013), the pacing here is more measured. Disorientating explorations of asynchronous stereo fields fade into periods of minimal drone, broken by the distant eruption of "Aetheric Plexus"; bottom-heavy oscillations give way to pointillist chatter; continuous streams of hum and crackle grow steadily until they form monumental aural sculptures.
JACASZEK & KWARTLUDIUM: Catalogue des Arbres CD $16.99
For the past decade or so, Polish musician Micha? Jacaszek has been exploring a new, resolutely modern chapter in Eastern Europe's long, storied love affair with classical music. His creations are painstakingly crafted collages of electronic textures and baroque instrumentation, harpsichords being swarmed by woolly static one minute and pulled apart by billowing wind the next. A push-and-pull tension runs deep and constant throughout. Ambient music is rarely so sonically challenging. Jacaszek has recorded for Ghostly International, Miasmah, Gusstaff Records and Experimedia, as well as other labels. This is his first release for Touch. Jacaszek writes: "When poets and writers declare their enchantment for the forms of nature, they often use musical terms as metaphors. Visual artists' creations often resemble graphic partitas when recapturing the rhythms of landscapes. Confirming, in a way, these musical intuitions, composers write great music deeply inspired by birdsong, wind rustling, wave repetitions, etc. Making Catalogue des Arbres, my ambition was to join this broad artistic movement devoted to natural phenomena and find my own way to describe trees: their forms, atmosphere and mystery. I have started with 'open air' recordings, capturing mainly leaves' rustlings -- from different distances, in different locations and weather conditions. This collection of nature recordings was transformed into a kind of 'organic drone' and becomes a main background for instrumental and voice improvisations. My initial inspiration here was Olivier Messiaen's bird song transcriptions for piano -- the composer's work entitled 'Catalogue d'Oiseaux' I have paraphrased on my album. A piano, clarinets, violin and percussion parts, performed by the Kwartludium ensemble, were electronically processed, and afterwards all this electro-acoustic material was turned into a collection of eight soundscapes -- forgotten songs performed secretly by my beloved trees." Composed, recorded and produced by Micha? Jacaszek. Additional composition and all instrumental parts performed by Kwartludium. Voice parts (tracks 1, 8) performed by 441 Hz Chamber Choir. Additional clarinet parts (tracks 2, 3) performed by Andrzej Wojciechowski. Grand piano recorded by Cezary Joczyn at Gdan?sk Academy of Music). Kwartludium are: Dagna Sadkowska (violin); Micha? GÃ³rczy?ski (clarinet, bass clarinet), Pawe? Nowicki (percussion); Piotr Nowicki (grand piano). Mastered by Denis Blackham at Skye Mastering. Artwork & photography by Jon Wozencroft.
VA: Funny Old Shit: A Trunk Records Sampler - Vol. 1 CD $8.99
Jonny Trunk presents Funny Old Shit, an 18-track compilation of funny old shit from the Trunk archive. "From calypsos sung by Bernard Cribbins and Robert Mitchum to avant-garde French concrÃ¨te, with stops at post-punk, killer vocal jazz, Radiophonics, early African fusion, Argentinean film music and even some twitchy classical from Glenn Gould, this groundbreaking compilation flies in the face of the current trend for issuing records that, to be honest, are actually quite average and really very expensive indeed for what they are. This is a total bargain, an education and a right laugh. Although some people will actually think it's shit. Bernard Cribbins is a British actor and a god, so Bernard was a great place to start, and can you name any other song apart from 'Gossip Calypso,' featured here, that manages to squeeze in the words 'Oxy Acetylene welder?' No, I can't either. This is followed by modern classical music played on strange sculptures by the prolific team of Jacques Lasry and Bernard Baschet. Their sound is reminiscent of film music by Cliff Martinez, and that's maybe because Cliff has a Cristal Baschet sculptural instrument, too. Next we travel to Argentina for some lovely film music (featuring a very young Gato Barbieri) and then to an early fusion of Africa and America with Guy Warren and Red Garland getting all hip and proto-rap. This is followed by a classic chunk of minimal modern music from 1981 by The Jellies. Next up is the B-side from the first-ever BBC Radiophonic Workshop record, which, incidentally, was produced by George Martin. After this we can absorb some high culture with Noel Coward reciting Ogden Nash's words written in 1949 to accompany the romantic classic masterpiece "The Carnival of the Animals," composed way back in 1886. We then move to a high-point in low culture, and to the world's best worst singer, Leoni Anderson. She starred with Laurel And Hardy in one of their many films, and her one and only album is a terrifying delight. As a lover of very fine vocal jazz, too, I had to throw in 'Naima,' a staggering version of Coltrane's classic. A small piece of educational electronics by Terry Dwyer makes quite a good little plugged-in interlude, which leads us nicely to the main theme for the Jacques Tati classic, 'Monsieur Hulot's Holiday.' Eccentric pianist Glenn Gould then appears with the beginning of his legendary 'Goldberg Variations' recording, and then I realized I seem to be nudging towards interesting classical recordings a bit, which I think is no bad thing. And before you know it, we're back enjoying some proper experimental concrÃ¨te tape larks. Never one to resist a film star singing, I found it almost impossible to not stick in Robert Mitchum singing, and then I realized when I was writing these notes that that this was the second calypso-based record on this very small sampler, and then I thought that very fact might enhance the idea of the whole thing really being a bit 'shit.' After Bob, we can all enjoy a super-rare recording issued to accompany the 1962 kitchen sink drama A Taste Of Honey. We finish with Yusef Lateef's version of Alex North's sublime 'Love Theme' from the film Spartacus. It's a perfect musical spot where an incredible film melody has met one of the great experimental jazzmen of all time. The results are quite exceptional. So chums, that's Funny Old Shit. The idea is to put together more of these samplers with friends, guests and other groovy collectors, and to draw you in further to the funny old shit musical world that is Trunk Records." --Jonny Trunk

ROYAL FAMILY AND THE POOR: The Project Phase 1 - The Temple of the 13th Tribe LP $25.99
The Royal Family And The Poor is the nomenclature adopted by Mike Keane, who recorded for Factory Records between 1980 and 1986. The Project Phase 1 - The Temple of the 13th Tribe, released in 1984, was produced in Manchester by Joy Division and New Order bassist Peter Hook. Featuring the violinist John Neesham (of Walking Seeds and Mel-o-Tones) and the keyboard player Lita Hira from label-mates Stockholm Monsters, the album was done only after plenty of ups and downs in Keane's own life as well as numerous personnel shifts and incarnations, but the end results were a sometimes delicate and often enthralling combination. The combination of TR 808 and other drums, reverbed vocals, and aural mystery is all permeated by Keane's interest in the occult, while Hook's technological know-how adds a sharp rhythmic punch to tracks such as "Dark and Light," "Radio Egypt" and "Discipline." Other tracks include one of Mike Keane's best-known songs, the affecting ballad "I Love You (Restrained in a Moment)," and the sinister, vocodered "Motherland." Perhaps the most misunderstood band to record for Factory Records, The Royal Family And The Poor remain for many an (oc)cult enigma, releasing only four albums in two decades, and rarely performing live after 1984. A lost classic, highly recommended for fans of Joy Division, New Order, Section 25, Durutti Column, Death In June, etc. First vinyl reissue for the 30-year anniversary. Collectible limited edition of 500 copies.
EMERSON, DONNIE & JOE: Still Dreamin' Wild: The Lost Recordings 1979-81 CD $17.99
"Released for the first time ever. All tracks newly re-mastered from original tapes. Includes liner notes by Jack D. Fleischer interviewing Donnie and Joe, plus a download card. As teenagers in Fruitland, Washington in the late '70s, the farming Emerson brothers dreamed of being heard. The synthesizers were sometimes crude and the 8-track recorder had its limitations, but they aimed at nothing short of perfection in their home studio, on the farm. They titled their 1979 debut Dreamin' Wild, and, as multi-instrumentalist Donnie later admitted, 'Joe and I basically lived the dream of the title of the album.' But Dreamin' Wild does not tell the full story. In a relatively short span of time -- just two and half years -- the boys put close to 70 songs down on tape, all recorded at that magical home studio on the farm. A dozen of them are included here on Still Dreamin' Wild: The Lost Recordings 1979-81 and ready to be enjoyed for the first time ever. With a familiar blend of FM rock, power pop, and new wave, these 12 tracks cover the entirety of that fruitful period, stretching from the second song Donnie ever recorded ('Everybody Knows It') -- to tracks documenting his temporary move to L.A. in 1981."
DONATI, ROBERT: Cannibal Ferox: Original 1981 Motion Picture Soundtrack LP $29.99
"Original motion picture soundtrack to Umberto Lenzi's 1981 jungle shocker Cannibal Ferox, aka Make Them Die Slowly, composed and performed by Roberto Donati, aka Budy Maglione. Limited to 1,000 copies, housed in a deluxe tip-on jacket with color insert featuring liner notes and photos from the film. Contains four bonus tracks not included in the original score. The most fame Donati ever received was probably for his soundtrack to Umberto Lenzi's exploitation shocker Cannibal Ferox, a notorious video nasty labeled as "the most violent movie ever made," which was banned or severely cut in 31 countries. Cannibal Ferox is often described as one of horror filmdom's golden grails and holds its own among other contemporary classics like Cannibal Holocaust, The Beyond, and Zombi 2. Praised by composers and directors all over the world. Eli Roth described it as 'powerful tribal, pounding stuff' and used it as an inspiration when editing his new movie The Green Inferno (which is an homage to the Cannibal film genre). Like many of the Italian cannibal films, the soundtrack is just as powerful and effective as the disturbing butchery. The use of funk guitar, bass, rock piano and synthesizer makes for a fun yet still powerful sound. Its '70s recklessness with an '80s sensibility, perfect for a film that rides the line between two decades. Surprisingly funky and light-hearted, but then again there are cues which are genuinely mean and foreboding, serving as an essential piece that makes the film a pulse-pounding inferno of death. One Way Static Records is now proud to announce the release of this historical motion picture soundtrack on vinyl and cassette. All packaged in deluxe editions with extensive liner notes. Also included are several bonus tracks making this effort the most complete and accurate presentation of the soundtrack to date."

Ben Frost - AURORA lp on Mute $24.99
we finally have copies of the new ben frost in stock. got best new music on pitchfork, who has this to say about it - Frost’s latest album, A U R O R A, offers his best example yet of this sort of aural suffocation. The uptick could partly be due to a new approach: Unlike his past work, there are no guitars, piano, or stringed instruments; instead, the 41-minute collection focuses on synthesizers and the heavy percussion of ex-Liturgy drummer and current Guardian Alien leader Greg Fox, Swans’ Thorr Harris, and multi-instrumentalist Shahzad Ismaily. A U R O R A is, in a sense, the proper companion to 2009’s excellent By the Throat, but it’s shaggier and more intense. Still, Frost is able to maintain a sense of spaciousness amid the feedback.
