4/20/2008 J. Spaceman / Sun City Girls Music From a Film by Harmony Korine CD $14.99 Drag City "The all-new soundtrack album from Harmony Korine's film, Mister Lonely, featuring Jason Spaceman (Spacemen 3) and the Sun City Girls. The soundtrack is deceptively minimal-a guitar or piano line that blinks past repetition and blushes into something grander; a motif reappearing under new auspices; link pieces that become spotlight moments, densely worked-out, stars in their own right. Working independently and never collaborating, Jason Spaceman and Sun City Girls employ an instrumental approach for the sounds here, with one or two chanted exceptions. Without knowing what the other was doing, they've each brought half a body to the film, supplying the apparitional and austere sounds of a world in which everyone is something they're not, i.e., the people they dream of being."

12/12/2009 Jackie-O Motherfucker Ballads Of The Revolution CD $15.99 Fire "Beginning in Portland, OR in 1994 as a duo, Tom Greenwood and Nester Bucket began Jackie-O Motherfucker as a conceptual/musical project exploring the possibilities of combining tape collage, free improvisation, and folk song structures. Both had played in many bands, and wanted to form a group that could be flexible enough to withstand the failure, and challenges they knew would be coming their way in the future if they were to keep the project alive long enough to achieve their goals. True to their early imaginings, JOMF became the mutable feast of psychedelic art, far exceeding the visions of either of them. Nester departed from the band and Greenwood carried on with JOMF, now functioning as a collective. Ballads Of The Revolution is the band's tenth studio record, and the culmination of 15 years spent defining their unique take on American music. The record begins with an arrangement of a traditional ballad -- "Nightingale" features Greenwood's vocals and guitar with the lush, open accompaniment of Bob Jones' double bass and the pedal steel guitar of Lewi Longmire. "Dark Falcon" is an improvisation and remix of a song written and recorded by the Lucky Dragons. It's built on samples and loops of the original recording, including vocals by Honey Owens. Side one closes with a JOMF original, "Skylight," which has been a part of the band's live set for a few years, and has been beautifully rendered in the studio. "The Corner" begins with the pulsing bass of a Roland keyboard, accompanied by turntable manipulations and the sparse sting of Owens' guitar, its dark minimalism a new classic moment for the band. "The Cryin' Sea" was written in Arhus, Denmark during an amazing live set where an enthusiastic audience pushed the band to bonkersville. Featuring incredible guitar work by Nick Bindeman, and special guest Michael Dustdevil, who fills out the recording with raw fuzz guitar. The closing track, "A Mania," is a rare radio friendly track by the band that perfectly finishes the album."

Jackie-O Motherfucker Fig. 5 CD $17.99 Road Cone “Fig. 5, Jackie-O Motherfucker's fourth full-length release, is extraordinarily interesting. What started as a desire to spend comfortably large amounts of time in the basement expanding upon their rock-based, ESP- informed whoosh-loop-jazz fix somehow turned into something else: an anthropological foray into America's musical history, as filtered through the Jackie-O psych treatment. Witness the Tony Conrad-ish repetition-scrape ('Native Einstein'), the collaborative collage with Portland electronic outfit Nudge ('Analogue Skillet'), the reinterpretations of old spirituals ('Amazing Grace' and 'Go Down, Old Hannah'), the surf-toned savant-psych head spin ('Michigan Avenue Social Club'), the country-tinged guitar tucked into SY-ish rock ('Beautiful September'). These are not genre exercises, though it all coheres under the Jackie-O gravity well, perfectly enmeshed with their own dissonance, beauty and psychedelic morphings. The CD is packaged in a sturdy die cut folio designed by Road Cone (a la Evangeline), with letterpressed insert cards sketching the history of 'Amazing Grace' and 'Old Hannah'.”
9/30/2008 Jackie-O Motherfucker Freedomland CD $18.99 Very Friendly "This is a collection of live-recorded improvised material by Portland, Oregon's Jackie-O Motherfucker. Compiled by founding member Tom Greenwood, this music captures the sound of a reconfigured Jackie-O during the late summer of 2006, with vocalist Eva Salens (Inca Ore), Tom Greenwood, Danny Sasaki, and Nick Bindeman. Their first stop was at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco, where the group were scheduled for their first appearance supporting the Dirty Three. There they would begin -- unrehearsed in this formation, and in front of a large audience. The plans to perform material from their newest release Flags of the Sacred Harp were scrapped, and the band launched into a free-form set of improvised, trance-inducing, punk-inspired, psychedelic rock, which became the framework of the new music they would develop together over the next few years. Freedomland is the document of this trip through America. The record consists of location recordings, captured live, and mastered in the United Kingdom. The songs were created from the spirit of improvisation, and honed by performing nightly in dive bars, music halls, and art galleries across America. Salens' vocal delivery is raw and honest, the words flow from conversations, to streams-of-sub-conscious conjuring, and prayer. Guitars alternately soar into cloud-scapes, and battle like free-jazz saxophones, propelling the group into new terrain nightly, while the percussion of Danny Sasaki alternates between exploratory and dead-solid motoric. The collection was edited by Tom Greenwood, from dozens of live recordings, and captures a rare moment in the band's long and confusing history. As Greenwood himself describes, this is "truly the music of everyday life -- birthed each night in a new form, from musicians who put great faith in each other, under awesome strain at times, to project modern music, with soul."

Jackie-O Motherfucker Liberation CD $17.99 Road Cone “Liberation takes you on a journey from ecstatic disorientation to spiritual liberation, and for it's JOMF's most emotionally cohesive release yet. Strings and vibes are given considerable weight here, adding a new dimension of fragile beauty to JOMF's distinctly free approach to pattern and repetition. But whether they spray improvised shards of shimmering noise or billow soft clouds of psychedelic primitivism, JOMF create a distinct whole from the chaotic orchestrations of saxophones, guitars, percussion, strings, electronics and more. The emotional core of the songs unfold gloriously to the patient, thoughtful listener. From the unrepentant yet subtle chaos of 'Peace on Earth' to the mighty, swelling squalls of the 20 minute 'In Between' to the drop-dead gorgeous 'The Pigeon' and the quiet peace of 'Pray', JOMF deliver a unique sense of liberation.”

Jackie-O Motherfucker Live in Portland and Seattle '00/'01 CDR $15.99 U-Sound "Free Spirited 1969 ESP Freak-Out leading us into Vol.04 by JOMF. But actually recorded in the near end of 2000 in Seattle opening an Acid Mother Temple Shiners convention. Vocal mumblings of the godz down to an Albert Ayler yelp! Due Saxes and violin explode/implode across these first 3 tracks. The later 4 tracks recorded Live in PDX in June of 2001 begin warmly building and swarming over the pizzeria where this was recorded. The Sound is intense and deep. Definitely a softer side of JOMF to begin. Then playful and buzzing. The ending slowly triggers into a peaceful dirge with spaced guitars and violin sweeping in and out of consciousness with finally drums dropping in and lead it out." Part 4 of the U-Sound Archive Series.

Jackie-O Motherfucker Live in Portland, OR and Vancouver, Canada '00/'01 CDR $15.99 U-Sound “Live recordings beginning with a squiggly build up and into a pulsing mass which throws us into some harvester trance then back down to a sweet level throwing us back into the horns, the horns and these run on and on. Sentences/phrases on and on... Do you remember where you began or where you would ever leave off?! Luscious live ballroom sounds from PDX (Portland, OR) the first half when Jackie-O opened for John Fahey's last live performance, then its up to YVR (Vancouver, Canada) at the Ms.T's cabaret for some ecstatic dub if you know what I feel! Dropped out beats and the Ray-O-Graph (see liberation) Then ‘Echo's Of Lunch’ pushes into some sort of American gamelan with beautiful guitar like remains. The last piece ‘The Pigeon’ takes us back to a more horn-based root then crumbles and filters out into the night. Gorgeous!” Part 2 of the U-Sound Archive Series.

Jackie-O Motherfucker Live in Portland, OR and Vancouver, Canada '01/'02 CDR $15.99 U-Sound “Live sways from Portland, OR starting the disc off. Vibes and harmony rein with ‘Pray,’ moving into frazzled sax/guitar movements in ‘Song for a New Moon.’ Last of the Portland set is ‘Pants On At The Bus Stop’ which swings and rocks like Neil Young in '72?! Maybe I'm just out! The later half of the disc taken from a live show opening for the Sun City Girls in Vancouver Canada wavers in with dream like guitars and saxes sweetly riding over top. Building the total mass into a jerked out Trance. This performance is utterly pleasing, more of a groove on most of these tracks. There are elements of these first 3 JOMF CD-R's that blow over their official Releases. A tad more unyielding and wild! Dig in!” Part 3 of the U-Sound Archive Series.

4/3/2010 Jackie-O Motherfucker The Blood Of Life CD $15.99 Fire "2008 release. This is the first album by Jackie-O Motherfucker on Fire Records. Recorded live in the studios of VPRO Radio in Amsterdam in 2007, The Blood Of Life contains two completely new versions of Jackie-O Motherfucker classics, "Hey! Mr. Sky," (an opus from Flags of the Sacred Harp) and "The Grave," as well as a reworking of "Valley Of Fire," all produced in a very minimal but powerful style.

11/23/2004 Jackie-O Motherfucker/ My Cat Is An Alien From the earth to the Spheres Vol.3 LP $99.99 Opax Records "The third volume of the 'From the earth to the Spheres' split LPs series on My Cat Is An Alien's Opax Records features the two brothers Maurizio and Roberto Opalio alongside Tom Greenwood's Jackie-O Motherfucker collective. While the Torino-based MCIAA focus their musical research on instantaneous composition, often combined in audiovisual installations, JOMF, who formed in Portland, Oregon, exactly a decade ago, base their music on roots & American primitive blues, free jazz improv & psych folk-rock aesthetics. Releasing cd-r volumes as audio-documents, as well as setting up live improv installations through their own U-Sound Archive, JOMF created a platform of collaboration with other kindred spirits. Their piece 'Breaking' begins with a kind of old gospel fragmented by beats, which moves throughout empty areas 'till imploding into deconstructed sounds & voices over vinyl scratches, where silence break out loud & unexpected. MCIAA's 'Blank view' is a psychic trip moving from the deep darkness towards the brightest light. This totally improvised track, made of interwoven sounds of cathartic guitar chords , percussions & xylophone, is permeated by wordless vocals, whose impressive and sad lyricism comes out from a streamline of sounds from the outer space. The whole thing sounds like an old folk-blues 78 rpm broadcasted from Jupiter directly into the listener's brain. The next vols of the series will feature Jim O'Rourke, Christina Carter, Double Leopards, Glands of External Secretion and Christian Marclay. Each vol comes as a special SPACE ART ltd. only-vinyl edition of 100 copies, whose 'sleeves' are Roberto Opalio's original paintings on 31x31cm. wood support." Limited stock.
9/30/2005 Jackie-O-Motherfucker Liberation CD $15.99 ATP "Reissue of Jackie-O-Motherfucker's 2001 Liberation, originally released on Road Cone. This album was highly acclaimed for its superior production, and marks the band's slow move towards more song-oriented and loosely-composed material. It's a dreamier, organic, more transitional record that proudly displays Jackie-O's emotional sophistication and ever-expansive chops. Multi-intrumentalists Tom Greenwood and Jef Brown and various Jackie-O collective members use vibraphone, fiddle, organ, turntables, sitar and reed to augment and illustrate a variant cacaphony, even dipping into free-jazz territory. Liberation picks up where Fig. 5 left off, except with more lone, anthemic post-rock simultaneously invoking elements of Spaceman 3, Can, Dirty Three, Derek Bailey, the Art Ensemble of Chicago and Amon Düül. Far more hazy than their previous releases, Liberation cemented the band as an ever-revolving cast of collaborators willing to participate in a free-flowing experiment in free-jazz, folk, psych-rock, post-rock, and distorted Americana."
1/15/2005 Jackman, David Edge of Nothing 10" $19.99 Die Stadt "The re-release of yet another classic work by David Jackman. Edge Of Nothing was recorded in 1983 and was originally released on the legendary The Elephant Table Album compilation (also feat. among many others Nurse With Wound whose Steven Stapleton got in touch with Jackman after hearing 'Edge Of Nothing' stating that the track was 'a cherry on a pile of vomit'). Soon afterwards Jackman and Stapleton would work together on several projects - Stapleton released two albums by Organum Submission and the split NWW/Organum A Missing Sense/Rasa LP on his own United Dairies label. Both tracks are new mixes of the original material made in January 2003."
1/25/2011 Jailbreak Colour Them Gone CDR $12.99 Nyali Recordings "Brand new album from the world-beating free music duo of Heather Leigh on pedal steel and vocals and Chris Corsano on drums, following on in style from their Family Vineyard LP. Once more recorded and mixed by Andreas Jonsson the sound is as dazzling as their debut, with three tracks that move from ferocious post-Sharrock power blues through new zones of smoky, spectral tone. The opener comes straight out of The Rocker, with Heather's bad motor scooter guitar burning asphalt while Corsano plays in four directions at a time, ducking air raid warnings with an amphetamine dexterity. Second track, "White Spider" is a whole new bomb, with the duo navigating a kind of psychedelic giallo atmosphere with Corsano making like an orchestra of Max Roachs while Heather plays spectral strings and floating tones that are straight out of the Nicolai/Morricone songbook. The closing "Freezing Shark" might be the most radical recording they've nailed to the floor, with an unaccompanied vocal from Heather driven straight through the wall by Corsano before the guitar explodes like a heavy metal Masayuki Takayanagi playing future blues. This is such a great, invigorating shot from the source and it confirms a whole buncha things that are important in underground music: energy, passion, actual playing, speed-of-thought improvisation. Who else comes close? Hand-numbered edition of 297 copies. Highest possible recommendation!" Volcanic Tongue. Edition of 297 Copies.
2/21/2009 Jalan Jalan Traditional Music Recordings by Jerry Lloyd CD $7.99 Urck Records "Jerry Lloyd's indigenous music recordings documenting 10 years of travel (1998-2008) through Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Burma, India, Morocco, Egypt, Malaysia, Indonesia, Sumatra & Bali. Includes detailed liner notes for each track. The title "Jalan Jalan" is Indonesian. It literally means "road road". It is used when asked "Where are you going?", which is quite common in Indonesia and not considered rude or intrusive. However, if you don't want to give the details, you just respond with "Jalan Jalan" which amounts to something close to "here and there". 35 tracks, Running Time 79:40

8/21/2003 Jandek Graven Image CD $6.99 Corwood Industries "Jandek is an obscured Texan who has been privately releasing beautiful documents of fractured, internalized song de-con, since the very late 70s. There have been no tours, no interviews, no public appearances but the representation of individualistic creation has never been more perfectly rendered than via the Corwood discography. Utilizing guitars (one at time, both acoustic or electric), voice and percussion, this is music from the ultimate void - vaguely related to genres like folk, blues and avant-garde, but in the end it can only be the sound of Jandek. And there's never been anything else quite like it. There were 22 LPs released by Corwood in the LP era (all reissued on CD now). With Graven Image Corwood moved into the CD era for the first time. Haunting, eternal genius, continued." 1994 release.
11/6/2002 Jandek I Threw You Away CD $6.99 Corwood Industries "New, return to form album.

7/14/2007 Jandek Newcastle Sunday DVD $18.99 Corwood Industries "Jandek played his second and third live shows ever in the U.K. in May 2005. Unlike his first show in 2004, these were publicized in advance, though it wasnt announced whether the performances would be solo, trio again, or what. The first show (documented on this DVD) was at the Music Lovers Field Companion festival at The Sage Gateshead on Sunday, May 22 2005. (Gateshead is in the far north of England, across the River Tyne from Newcastle.) Jandek played electric guitar and sang. He was accompanied by Richard Youngs on electric bass and Alex Neilson on drum kit. You can choose to watch Camera 1 or Camera 2; there is no 2 camera mix edit this time."
12/15/2001 Jandek Nine-Thirty CD $6.99 Corwood Industries Reissue of 10th LP from 1985. Richie Unterberger says "...with that trademark out-of-tune guitar that owes equal debts to Texas blues and the background music you hear in a lot of Asian restaurants... his phrasing is better than ever... I also dug the lyrical swipes from Jimmy Reed's 'Honest I Do' in 'Faye'... Even us fans concede that the same out-of-tune chord he uses 90% of the time gets a little wearing."
5/12/2003 Jandek One Foot In The North CD $6.99 Corwood Industries "Electric guitar (sometimes one, sometimes two) and vocals, no woman singer, no acoustic guitar, drums about a third of the time. 'Yellow Pages' is a kind of cousin to 'European Jewel'. 'Alehouse Blues' is a pretty straight electric blues. 'Upon the Grandeur' is built around a very beautiful winding figure on the guitar; there's also a second guitarist and someone thumping along throughout on a kettle drum (?). (At the end you can hear two male voices speaking to each other, off-mike: I can't pick out any words except when one of them says ?What??)." - Seth Tisue. This is a reissue of Jandek’s 20th LP, originally issued in 1991.
8/21/2003 Jandek Put My Dream On This Planet CD $6.99 Corwood Industries “It’s certainly a head-scratcher. No guitar, no drums, no piano, just him rambling on for a small eternity in a sort of song/speech mode... all of it sounding kind of like it was recorded though a 15 watt Peavey Bandit amp with a broken reverb spring and a noise-gate pedal. Eerie (some might say annoying or god awful), almost bluesy hiss bathed vocals are separated by some rather lengthy periods of complete silence, covering some of the places and ‘feelings’ that populate his other records so vividly. Reading into it a bit (for in this place everything means something), we see that his last record ended with ‘The Beginning’ (!) — a 15+ vocal-less (!) piano ‘meditation’ which certainly clouded the waters when it dropped — which can now be viewed as an intro to this new acapella recording...you get the idea. So then, as concrete poetry it’s not so hot, and as some kind of Out Blues piece, it’s actually rather dire, but viewed in the microscope of the Jandekian Canon, it’s pretty massive, and that’s saying something too.”
7/23/2004 Jandek Shadow of Leaves CD $6.99 Corwood Industries "Jandek plays bass again, claims to 'no longer exist,' sings about drinking ‘mechanically produced beverages,’ and announces plans to 'think about breathing.' Recently he took a walk. The music seems improvised but is satisfyingly varied and tracks the varying moods of the vocals closely. During the long piece, moments of abjection or desperation occur, but they pass; mostly the voice we hear is lucid. He's leveling with us. When he sings 'I won't drive my car for the rest of the day,' it's a fact. The most harrowing moment comes during the last track, a love song that turns threatening: 'please take my bait... I want to eat you up... you'll never get away, you won't want to... you don't have a life, you live in me.' The music plunges down to the bottom of the bass's range, but by the last line, the point of view has pulled back again to encompass 'the grand scheme of things.'" - Seth Tisue. 36th release from 2004.
2/18/2003 Jandek Somebody In The Snow CD $6.99 Corwood Industries Reissue of 19th album from 1990. "Rounded up into one big heap, all the Jandek records at once amount to an almost impenetrable thing... A demanding, invigorating, tragic, visionary work."

Jandek The Beginning CD $6.99 Corwood Industries 1999 release. I have been listening to this one a lot lately (after not being interested in Jandek since my one and only listening to him a few years ago). Anyhow, after 'writing him off' I have found his recordings grow on me after each listen. Features 16 minute piano solo.
11/23/2004 Jandek The Door Behind CD $6.99 Corwood Industries “38th Jandek album, third to be released in 2004. Guitar & vocals. Recently, Jandek played a show in Scotland and now we see that ‘his representative’ once had a beard, as shown on this stunning new album cover. The world truly is square and we're all about to fall off the edge.” - FE
9/23/2004 Jandek The End of It All CD $6.99 Corwood Industries “37th Jandek album, from 2004. 4 tracks, including the 20 minute ‘One of Those Moments’. Vocals, electric guitar, in what one would think of as the ‘contemporary Jandek style'.” - FE
3/9/2004 Jandek The Gone Wait CD $6.99 Corwood Industries "35th Jandek album. 'The Gone Wait' was a track on 1993's The Twelvth Apostle album, now it's an album title. This has happened before, and will happen again. Five tracks, good titles: 'I Went To Hell', 'I See The Open Door', 'I Was A King', 'I Just Might Go Now', 'I Found The Right Change'. Cover photos features a continuation of the Cork window shopping theme that has developed through the 770 series of Corwood releases. This time: sale pricing. Musically, a new style: acoustic guitar and electric bass duos, with Jandek's vocals teetering into almost-Steve Martin territory." - FE
4/9/2003 Jandek The Humility of Pain CD $6.99 Corwood Industries "Sounds similar to the last one (‘I Threw You Away’). They definitely are a pair that stand apart from the others. But: shorter (though still long-ish) songs, no harmonica this time, and the guitar is more jangly and dissonant, lots of clashing ringing high frequencies. It’s lower on the lulling melancholy, higher on the in-your-face suffering. In the vocals Jandek will draw out the last word of a line into a long wounded moan, letting the pitch of his voice wander up and down, hitting all the most pained-sounding cracks between the notes, pulling the listener into his head with him. Other times he pushes the listener away again with lyrics delivered in a lazy sarcastic you-wouldn’t-understand drawl. This one hurts you as much as it hurt Jandek."
2/18/2003 Jandek The Living End CD $6.99 Corwood Industries Reissue of 18th album from 1989. "Janitor's Dead is sequel to ‘The Janitor’ from Later On. Female vocals reappear on this LP (Nancy, or someone new?)."

Jandek The Rocks Crumble CD $6.99 Corwood Industries "Jandek goes electric!

'Birthday' is a new version of the same song previously recorded as 'Nancy Sings' and 'John Plays Drums'. Reissue of 8th LP from 1983.

Jandek This Narrow Road CD $6.99 Corwood Industries The 30th Jandek release and is similar to the 29th release 'Put My Dreams On This Planet' as it is another acapella release. 12 tracks with the first being the longest clocking in at just under 30 minutes.
7/16/2006 Jandek What Else Does the Time Mean? CD $7.99 Corwood Industries "46th Jandek release, and the 3rd of 2006! Features strangled, tinny guitar and even a harmonica! Pictured on the front, a young man in winter, sitting on a bench, holding an axe." - FE
5/8/2005 Jandek When I Took That Train CD $6.99 Corwood Industries "40th Jandek album, first new release of 2005. Cover features a guy on the street, wearing 'that hat' (last seen on 0777: A Kingdom He Likes, the synchronicity might kill you). Looks like Cork again, but then again, every photo with cars on the wrong side of the road looks the same to me. 11 tracks, 7 of them with the word 'you' in the title." - FE

Jandek White Box Requiem CD $6.99 Corwood Industries From 1996. "It seemed that after the two 1994 CDs Jandek had buried his guitar for good... Like his last few, this is an all-acoustic affair. He doesn't play full chords a lot this time around and concentrates on his famed extraterrestrial single-string melodies..."
8/28/2007 Janiurek, Frank Electric Sex Goddess CDR $15.99

Electric Sex Goddess has that same lonesome, nowhere feel as the Red Kites debut with tough, almost percussive solo electric guitar manipulated into glorious psychedelic madrigals that sound somewhere between SF ballroom style solo blitzing and the more lugubriously extended electric Loren Mazzacane/Hisato Higuchi style. The use of feedback is particularly mesmeric, with dense globs of tonal machine noise oscillating like great clouds of lava and illuminating the endlessly re-stated six-string mandalas. Other tracks have such a great feel for commanding feedback and the movement of electricity through space that the only thing remotely comparable would be the non-Euclidean beauty of Derek Bailey's String Theory recording or aspects of the Fripp/Eno albums. Either way this is another hypnotically-charged broadcast from the edge of the world and a near-p erfect solo guitar record. Highly recommended." - Volcanic Tongue

Janko, Krul' Albanskaj Ekezhhm, Gyuvel Pyuganlahkh Aektspyud? CD $9.99 Some Place Else "Janko, Krul' Albanskaj was a project by one Henry Zalkin. His given name was Heikki Huhtanen. Zalkin was a musician, writer, interpreter and an enthusiastic person of many interests: industrial and electronic music, languages, politics, cult movies, literature and anything possible in popular culture.
In addition to Janko, Krul' Albanskaj, Henry Zalkin had a number of other music projects, most of them remaining unknown to public. An exception is Bulimia, an ethno-industrial project somewhat influenced by Muslimgauze, that had tracks released on several compilation albums in the mid 90's. He also played classical music in an orchestra in Helsinki, samples of which he used in some of his own music. During 1999 Zalkin was giving the finishing touches to a Janko, Krul' Albanskaj album to be released on the Finnish label Some Place Else. It was only some weeks after we received the completed material that the bad news arrived. Zalkin had died on heart attack on September 5, 1999. He was 24 years old.
The album was released in early 2001. It bears a cryptic title Ekezhhm, Gyuvel Pyuganlahkh Aektspyud?, the meaning of which probably only Zalkin knew. It remains Zalkin's only full-length album."
12/24/2005 Japanese Karaoke Afterlife Experiment, The The Japanese Karaoke Afterlife Experiment 3" CDR $12.99 Audiobot "If you dig spastic beats that flutter around in a distorted no-wave manner. sweaty armpits and bringing back the 'mosh' to experimental music. this drums/synth duo shits on your front porch with a vicious smile on their face. Japanese Karaoke Afterlife Experiment is everything their name promises. It is an experiment in music. orchestrated dance noise music. skits. masquerading personas that speak for themselves. involving you like a dirty psychedelic soap opera. the party. the good times.They've been often described as sounding like an overheated robot malfunction. a gruesome fact that ain't far from the truth either. Someone mumbles They make Lightning Bolt look like The Clientele! - Yeah and for the record they're from Providence and they do wear masks... Packaged in full color stencil-printed oversized jackets by enfant terrible Dennis Tyfus. Limited to only 150 copies and flaming hot."
7/10/2008 Jarvis, A. She Is Also Phasing cassette $7.99 Peasant Magik "Three tracks of total John Carpenter worship. Sweeping synths, pulsing bass lines, and Kurt Russell. Jarvis takes hints from Carpenter's classic sound and manages to incorporate elements from all of his previous work: swells of feedback, analog shimmer, and subtle, but damaged, percussion. Like all of his previous work, this is absolutely perfect. High bias chrome tapes, pro-printed covers." Edition of 100 copies.
6/11/2006 Jarvis, A. The Widow Myth 3"" CDR $6.99 Firstperson "Andy Jarvis (A Warm Palindrome/Anna Planeta) takes you on four meanders by moonlight. Shimmering summery squallings are pounced on by dirty scrape monsters. A walk across the fields mutates into a superb free scrap-metal bustup. The body snatchers and Willow the Wisp are closing in, but you just about make it. Shy fairground organs retreat into the trees to escape the final onslaught.. These four tracks lead you far into the backwoods and leave you there. Dark, beautiful and quite exceptional." (Mel Delaney). "New solo cdr from Andy Jarvis (A Warm Palindrome / Helvetica is the Perfume of the City / Sculptress) opening with fuzzed guitar burrowing its way into gently throbbing drones. Rumbling drum / percussion mayhem ensues, then its back to a hypnotic drone throb of organ and vocals before more distorto-guitar channelling." - Gayle Brogan, Boa Melody Bar
3/2/2005 Jarvis, A. Thread (Uproot & Scatter) 3" CDR $7.99 Firstperson "Reissue of 'Thread (Uproot & Scatter)'. Recordings from 1996-99.

2/14/2008 Jasons, The Live on Fryday the 13th one-sided LP $13.99 Tovinator "Another PE PAUL/GSPOT specialty. This is Tovah Olson= synth, tapes, can/Haunted Dan (Haunted Castle, Uneven Universe) = electronics / & PE PAUL on ?????? Screams, strangeness, raw house party Michigan ambiance. Recorded in the dark over the summer on Friday the 13th. Tovah got busted cause she wore a Freddy K shirt with a Jason mask...what a clash! Hear the air frizzle & fry with buzzing electronics while Paul screams and gags for some reason or another. One-sided black vinyl LP with handpainted art by the TOVINATER herself. Edition of 90."
8/1/2014 Jaworzyn, Stefan Principles Of Inertia LP + download $19.99 Trensmat "Having last been spotted in the mid 90s (post-Whitehouse/Skullflower/Ascension) Stefan Jaworzyn's musical output resurfaced in 2013 with two amazing EPs on his legendary Shock label. This LP continues to define his new mission of exploring the results of taking away an aging lunatic's guitars and locking him in a room full of electronic equipment. Over forty minutes and four tracks 'Principles of Inertia' delivers an analog assault for the weirdest dancefloors. Kicking off with 'Biorigged', driven by a rugged breakbeat through bracing, atonal maelstrom of sheer, screeching, crisply contoured chirpin mind-bending tweaks. 'Festival Of Lies' delivers a swarm of blood curdling electronics underpinned by a squashed and distressed tract of wobbly bass and surging squall. Flip for the driving blistering juggernaut that is 'Gland Collector', a delirious proper napalmed ear-flosser. The LP closes with 'Apocalypse' which adds layers of bleeping LFO nastiness to relentlessly shuddering rhythms & blistering but lush harmonic noise. A dose of sonic bath salts straight to the ear. Buyers also get additional extras for immediate download - digital copies of each track featured on the vinyl plus an additional digital only track ('Dawn of a New Ice Age'). Pre-orders will be immediately sent a link to this download package in WAV & MP3 format. VERY limited edition vinyl LP in full colour card sleeve (+ 5 downloads)."
4/1/2014 Jaworzyn, Stefan The Annihilating Light LP $19.99 Kye "Kye is proud to present The Annihilating Light, the brand new LP by Stefan Jaworzyn. For over three decades Jaworzyn has colored the varied waters of underground practice with his unique and darkly acerbic hue. His tenure in such genre-defining units as Skullflower; Whitehouse and Ascension/Descension, and his scholarly position on extreme cinema have awarded Jaworzyn his reputation as a counter-cultural impresario. He is equally regarded for his solo work, which has taken in everything from D.I.Y. cassette noise, rhythm box processions, to free guitar barbarism and beyond. Returning from a period of self-imposed exile Jaworzyn has re-organized his delivery into a synthesized charge of hard patterned electronics. The first rewards of this resurgence came last year via a pair of 12" EP's released through Jaworzyn's revived Shock label. The Annihilating Light continues the story by showcasing two brand new long-form compositions. 'Oasis Of Filth' unveils a brooding synthetic wasteland, percolating with malevolence and spite; 'Cast Out', by contrast, offers a head-crushing impasse of electronic stasis, fully flushed with classic anti-social potential. Expertly mastered by Jason Lescalleet at Glistening Labs The Annihilating Light arrives in a full color, high gloss sleeve, with black matte inners, in an edition of 500 copies."
5/9/2009 Jaycock, David A. A New Love Song 7" $6.99 Great Pop Supplement "2 beautifully haunting, acoustic pieces from mancunian singer songwriter David A. Jaycock, following cdr outings on red deer club and early winter recordings and member of 'big eyes family players'. "a new love song" on side a, with it's almost droning vocal line and fahey-esque picking features a formidable, spine tingling banjo line- it's a jaw dropper of a piece. the same can be said of the flip "that warm feeling in my belly" where this time it's a violin line that gets those pimples down yr spine going. awesome single fabulously packaged in sealed, hand stamped envelope packs that are leaf cut by hand and numbered! limited to 300. utterly beautiful on the ear and the eye."
9/1/2010 Jaycock, David A. Presets LP $20.99 Blackest Rainbow "Debut vinyl LP from Manchester's David A. Jaycock (who is also a member of Big Eye Family Players), David recently had a 7" on the excellent Great Pop Supplement and 'Presets' follows on from that fine release. 'Presets' features 12 tracks of melancholic folk almost entirely performed by David on a variety of instruments, and its a real step forward to darker areas than his previous releases on Great Pop Supplement, Early Winter Recordings and The Red Deer Club. The record retains some of the more haunting vocal and guitar moments from afformentioned excursions, and at times is comparable to Ben Chasny's Six Organs of Admittance, but it has a much stranger and hard to place approach and sound, with some fantastic dark creepy tracks, blurring creaking, clunking objects with something that sounds like guitar, transformed into something far more sinister... but somehow at the same time retains a feeling that everything isn't quite as bleak as it seems. Edition of 250 with pro printed sleeves. Pressed on virgin vinyl."
4/25/2008 Jazkamer / Mark Durgan split 7" $7.99 No-Fi "Another instalment in No-Fi's vinyl catalogue, this 7" sees the head-on collision of two major acts in the European noise circuit. Norway's Jazkamer is the electronics and guitar duo of Lasse Marhaug and John Hegre, best known for their 'Metal Machine Music' death metal concept album but also for the searing blasts of electricity that typify their more noise-oriented work. For this release, they also recruit fellow Norwegian and multi-tasking guitar-mangling prodigy Anders Hana (Noxagt, MoHa!) - as if they needed any help to kick out the jams on this jawdroppingly raucous live recording. In contrast, the flip side is significantly more serene from Mark Durgan (who you may also know as Putrefier and who is rumoured to have been part of the mystery line-up of The New Blockaders at Thurston Moore's All Tomorrows Parties). Subsonic rumbles and birdsong dominate the surface of this track, but the devil's in the detail – poke your attention through the thin surface ice and you'll easily fall through to hidden depths."
7/14/2007 Jazkamer / Smegma Endless Coast CD $10.99 No Fun Productions "A collaboration between American underground psychedelic/noise pioneers (and still kicking hard now for over 30 years) Smegma and Norweigan noise/metal masters Jazkamer. From two totally different worlds and approaches to sound a totally original abstract language is born creating an imaginary coast that extends from the brutality of the Scandinavian frozen seas to the dark and mysterious rock filled beaches of the American northwest - a landscape full of strange creatures and beings, an eternal and endless coast. Recorded and mixed at Smegma's legendary home base Portland studio. Carlos Giffoni guests on bass and synth."
11/2/2008 Jazzfinger Mole and the Morning Dew LP $17.99 Spirit of Orr "It is with deep honor and wonder that we announce the release of this magical splaying of deep sound by NEWCASTLE's mighty JAZZFINGER. Truly Mr Jones and his crew are the bringers, the full cup, part of the GOOD that balances our lives against dark evils. Without hesitation, the people who hold the world together. Feel their power, and be comforted. Limited to 600, purple vinyl."
9/17/2006 Jazzfinger The Little Girl On The Plane Who Turned Her Doll's Head Around To Look At Me CD $12.99 Muzamuza "A band with a line in snappy titles and a penchant for annoying the police with their lo-fi improvisations. Primitive electric emanations from behind closed doors, fragments of warped minds directly produced by their homemade soundlab. Eerie mechanics that claw at the imagination that wouldn't sound out of place in the film 'Eraserhead'. Disturbing ambiences of inhuman proportions dwellin the psyche, who knows what lurks beyond." Recordings from 1996-1997 by Hasan Gaylani (fuckhorn) and Ben Jones (harpsichord).
9/30/2005 Jazzfinger Ugly For A Living CDR $10.99 Gold Soundz "Brand new full-length CD-R from one of the best free/avant/drone/primitive groups in the UK. This one is as fuzzy and electronically lurid as you could've hoped, stepping up the action levels from the dead-static drone of their recent self-released lathe-cut LP to new levels of teeth-grinding fury. At points this sounds like it could've come out on Scratch tapes back in the day, at others it sounds like they've recruited Neil Campbell for a tribute to the Third Ear Band recorded direct to ZX Spectrum. Nine tracks, with conceptions of the quality of "Icy Bloody Lies, We Hardly Knew You" and "Ascent Through Degradation". This duo walk the line like no-one else and Ugly For A Living makes for a beautiful ticket to oblivion." - Volcanic Tongue
7/10/2008 Jazzfinger / Culver and Fordell Research Unit split LP $18.99 Blackest Rainbow "Brand new split LP featuring heavy hitting UK bleak dudes... A-Side is Jazzfinger's 'Killed In A Clear Sky', one solid slab of fucked up tapped guitar drone and distant errie whir... like a storm of electric feedback, slashes and cuts. Far out, and a real killer 20 odd minutes to make you lull out. B-Side is a collaboration between Culver and Fordell Research Unit, another side long piece, that starts off with some bassed up doom chugs and slogs that sound like fucking something that could lay down by some Southern Lord brutality, but then it punches you in the face with its distorted churning hell. Limited to 280 white label LPs in black sleeves with hideous brutal artwork by French."
4/1/2003 Jazzkammer Knitter 7" $6.99 Tonschacht "Knitter is the first 7" from this Norwegian duo -- guitarist, improviser and composer John Hegre (also in Der Brief) and Lasse Marhaug, one of the most productive musicians in the international noise/experimental underground of the last 10 years. Jazzkammer combines timbre sound textures, drones, chrashing noise, digitalia, field recordings, turntables, static electric atmospheres, samplers sine waves and location recordings, all used in free improvisation to create fragmented, eclectic and relentless yet focused and massive collages. 'A-sia' might remind you of mixture between the hi-speed electronics of Belgian irregularities scratch pet land and the microsound-turntablism alà Otomo Yoshihide or Martin Tétreault, 'b-sia' begins like 'Pop' defined by the Tochnit Aleph crew, but slowly between layers of distortions there rise sweet, Fenneszian melody as if they were re-arranged by Rudolf E.ber."
3/21/2007 Jazzkammer & Howard Stelzer Tomorrow No One Will Be Safe CD $6.99 PACrec "Ever wonder what would happen if two Norwegian Noisemen travelled across the USA with an obsessed tape improviser? Tomorrow No One Will Be Safe documents the 2004 Jazzkammer / Howard Stelzer US tour, featuring a track each (Jazzkammer: Richmond, Virginia / Stelzer: Columbus, Ohio), as well as a collosal collaboration between the two (Bloomington, Indiana). Live compositions of space & silence punctuated with feedback screech and tape squeals, always threatening to self destruct but somehow maintaining its sense of tense exploration. Edition of 500."
5/7/2004 Jazzkammer & Sir Duperman Duperkammer CD $12.99 Smalltown Supersound "A collaborative album from two Norwegian electronic giants sparked when Jazzkammer's Lasse Marhaug couldn't make a gig in Singapore and Sir Duperman went in his stead. A clash-of-the-titans electro explosion with each group remixing each others' material."
3/2/2007 Jazzkammer / Opec split LP $21.99 Reverse "Jazzkammer makes a turntable buzz, Opec a montage of the most fucked frequencies you'll ever hear on a vinyl record." Limited edition of 323 copies on transparent vinyl and housed in a transparent silkscreened plastic sleeve.
4/12/2012 Je Suis Le Petit Chevalier L'Enfant Sauvage LP $22.99 Aguirre Records "Felicia Atkinson is having a very productive 2011. She has released tapes and cd's under her own name and the moniker Je Suis Le Petit Chevalier. Currently based in Brussels, Félicia is a French musician, artist & writer who is making an increasing impact in experimental music circles as of late. Her music pieces and drawings are often improvised and inspired by her travels and her night visions.

7/29/2004 Jelly Bean Bandits, The The Jelly Bean Bandits LP $17.99
“This all-time classic US '60s garage psych album includes the monster mind-bender ‘Generation,’ and a whole host of other snotty and deranged acid-punk gems. Originally released on Mainstream. 170 gram vinyl, heavy gloss cover, Euro import.”
10/25/2008 Jendon, Neil Invisibility CD $10.99 BloodLust! "Neil Jendon is a fixture in the Chicago music scene, who has shifted between roles as a psychedelically-driven guitarist in the indie/alternative band Catherine [TVT Records], a more experimentally-minded guitarist in the avant-garde group Zelienople, and as half of the group Abduction [with Michael Miley], through which I first witnessed Neil's vivid modular synthesizer playing. I originally came to know Neil in the early 1990's, and if I recall correctly, we bonded over the U.K. band, Loop. But maybe that was his band mate, Jerome? In any case, after losing touch with each other for a long measure of time, I have seen and heard much more of Neil's work in the last two years - and more recently - after seeing him destroy a small local venue with a live solo modular synth set - I knew that it was time to talk to him about a release for BloodLust! Neil's skill as an improviser may come into play on "Invisibility," but at the core of these recordings there is what seems to be a familiarity with the palette of early industrial music, be it Maurizio Bianchi, Lustmord, instrumental Throbbing Gristle [grittier than "After Cease to Exist," certainly], etc. Neil recently played an excellent set, opening up for Consumer Electronics, in Chicago, and it struck me how well his flavor of synth sits with other types of noise and experimental music, even if I know that on one hand, he comes from a more psychedelic, shoe-gazer-aware place. Now if I could only get around to seeing his post-Catherine, dream-pop band Buglette play live... Professionally duplicated CD, single panel, double-sided insert; color artwork; in jewel box with shrink-wrap."
3/21/2007 Jennifer Gentle A New Astronomy CD $13.99 A Silent Place Dedicated to Giovanni Paneroni, amateur astronomer and misunderstood genius. He was born in 1871 and made a living out of peddling sweets and ice-creams around Northern Italy's towns and villages. In his free time, he developed his own, revolutionary astronomical theories: the Earth is flat, surrounded on every corner by perennial glaciers; the sun is nothing more than a small silver ball with a 2 meter diameter and a weight of approximately 14 kilos; Copernicus was wrong: the entire official astronomical science is just a bunch of lies; planets don't move, stars are just little fires hung in the sky, the universe doesn't exist . He also invented a new solar compass based on his "extraordinary discoveries". In his unstoppable attempts to promote the truth, Paneroni tried everything and suffered countless humiliations: he stalked professors, was arrested and became a well known character in many Italian universities. After some years spent in a mental institution, he died in 1950. Thousands of people from all over the country attended his funeral. "A new astronomy" is probably the most eccentric and out-there JG release to date. Recorded mostly in Marco Fasolo's bedroom on a 4-track cassette machine, the album has been conceived as the imaginary soundtrack for some of their most bizarre, vivid dreams - obviously interspersed by the occasional nightmare. It's made by grainy, hallucinated musical scores trying to depict the beautiful, the scary, the annoying and the simply absurd inhabiting dreams. It runs the gamut from ghostly ambient drones to brain-damaged acoustic sketches, covering everything in between - furious guitar freak-outs and a hommage to British 60's producer Joe Meek included.
11/2/2002 Jennifer Gentle Funny Creatures Lane CD $19.99 Sillyboy Entertainment "For their sophomore effort, Jennifer Gentle committed to tape a bunch of sparkling pop songs and mysterious-sounding psychedelic monsters. An exquisite album and the best way to enter their colourful, hallucinated world. 'What's really great about Funny Creatures Lane is its sheer joie de vivre - it's freaky, to be sure, but a fun freaky, unforced and giddy. More than once there's the hint of what many of the Elephant 6-associated bands are trying for in America, but somehow Jennifer Gentle make everything that much more truly entertaining, silly smiles all around." - Ned Raggett, All Music Guide
11/2/2002 Jennifer Gentle I Am You Are CD $19.99 Sillyboy Entertainment Hailed with impressive reviews thanks to its almost impossible-to-describe mix of 60's psychedelia, whacked experimentation and sheer acoustic beauty, 'I am you are' was Jennifer Gentle first release and, in the words of the Italian music magazine Blow-Up, one of the most interesting Italian debuts of the 90's. Tender and fried sketches from another world. 'Jennifer Gentle are very unique. I have never heard anything like it before. It is very difficult to describe them after listening... I still think they've discovered a RARE sound' (Alan Bishop, Sun City Girls)."
2/21/2009 Jennifer Gentle Live in the House of God one-sided LP $12.99 A Silent Place "Recorded in an empty, deconsacrated church sometime in summer 2003, this LP is another installment in an on-going series of records documenting the weird life of Jennifer Gentle in the foggy plains of Northern Italy. Basically the sound of JG's mainman Marco Fasolo going wild with an old, battered electronic piano and a bunch of sound effects, "Live at the House of God" is a side-long improvisation sharing the same spirit of those 20-minutes keyboard freak-outs Sun Ra used to record in the late Sixties. Alternatively spacey and noisy, the piece is a dark, often unnerving exploration in sound, shimmering all the way through with a distinct Krautrock / early Cluster vibe. The new owners of the church were horrified and outraged by the sheer loudness of the performance, but God liked it a lot. Record comes in a deluxe heavy cardboard sleeve, including one insert...Strictly limited to 300 copies only!"
1/28/2005 Jennifer Gentle Valende CD $12.99 Sub Pop "Hailing from Padova, Italy, Jennifer Gentle is not a girl. Jennifer Gentle is, in fact, a band made up of singer/guitarist Marco Fasolo and drummer Alessio Gastaldello (joined by various accomplices when they play live). Valende is their third full-length, and first for Sub Pop (their first two albums, I Am You Are and Funny Creatures Lane were released individually on Italy's Sillyboy Entertainment, and together as a double CD under the name Ectoplasmic Garden Party by Australia's Lexicon Devil label). The record was, like its predecessors, home-recorded by Marco and Alessio and it's a psych pop charmer, drawing on the band's own brand of musical dementia: an almost impossible-to-describe melting pot of whacked experimentation, deep fried eccentricity and acoustic beauty, drawing judiciously on the band's long-term fascination with Syd Barrett, 13th Floor Elevators, and Joe Meek production techniques. Jennifer Gentle is also the first Italian band Sub Pop has ever signed (such is our deep affection for the band). But, again, Jennifer Gentle is not a girl."
11/4/2006 Jens If You've Seen Me Lately, Please Tell Me Where I've Been CD $19.99 Goddamn I'm A Countryman "2006 brings the second solo effort by Spacious mind's JENS, it's music for loners, mystics and organic farmers. It's music for softspoken revolutionaries, drop-outs and daydreaming mountain-climbers. It's music that speaks of other values and other places. But above all it's more PSYCHEDELIC then you can handle with cosmic vocals from Jens and female singer Linnea, sitars, some lovely electric guitar work throughout.Beautiful mini LP gatefold card sleeve."
2/15/2005 Jerman, Jeph / Albert Casias Add This To That CDR $7.99 Shadow Puppet Recording Co. “The first time collaboration between long time sound artist of natural objects and field recordings, Jeph Jerman, and sound artist / phonographer Albert Casias (aka Omnid). The list od sound sources is very long, but contains among other things, a bowed pine cone, singing crystals, horse hair, deer antler, and petrified wood. Packaged in a protective sleeve with an insert and photographs of the objects used in the recordings and covered with a natural heavy fiber paper.” – excerpt of review by Jerry Kranitz or Aural Innovations.
3/6/2010 Jerusalem and the Starbaskets Battle of the Orchids LP $16.99 Great Pop Supplement "Formidable full length of utterly whacked out, psych blues where the ferocity of The Sonics meets the tenderness of Galaxie 500, where the Velvets meet The Modern Lovers via the scuzz of first album Neutral Milk Hotel. A beguiling mix of beautifully tender pop which often descends into fuzz drenched, freakout mayhem courtesy of the most out there, incendiary guitar vibe presently doing the rounds. JATS core duo consists of Kim and Jeremy from Columbia, MO. Kim's Moe style drums lending perfectly to Jeremy's riotous, devastating guitar mash up. Infectious, unforgettable tunes that you will return to over and over. Previous GPS releases with the band were shared 45s with longterm Missouri friends Hush Arbors, and Wooden Wand, and both disappeared in the blink of an eye. 320 copies on numbered, split duo tone coloured wax. Packaged as ever with a loving GPS eye. It truly stands alone. Get on it!"
5/13/2011 Jerusalem And The Starbaskets Dost LP $15.99 De Stijl "Jeremy Freeze is a Memphis born songwriter who has spent the last few years in Columbia, Missouri playing and recording with Kim Sherman as Jerusalem and the Starbaskets. Before your preconceived notions of Missouri make things cloudy, consider the Black Artist Group, Screamin' Mee Mees, Drunks with Guns, Gene Clark and a whole lot of other shit that you don't know about get in the way. Lest there be other confusion, my friend Oliver, this 65-year-old dude from Kashmir, told me 'DOST' means 'brother man.' So basically, DOST is 'friend' but a more familiar way of the word. Just so happens that it's the phonetic same as 'dosed.' One crystalline thing herein is the jams. Freeze has reached that point where he's saying more by saying less and that's a level that many songwriters never reach. After a few years of playing gigs with Times New Viking, Wooden Wand and a short list of more or less limited releases, DOST is the band's first readily available release and we're going to do our best to get it everywhere."
2/20/2010 Jerusalem and the Starbaskets Room 8 / Swingin' Vine 7" $4.99 De Stijl "The great Rock Writer James Jackson Toth has regarded Jerusalem and the Starbaskets as being on the verge of sounding like the third Velvets LP as played by The Terminals. We couldn't agree more, but this could be twisted around rightfully if anyone feels like it to provide an analogy that would make the Terminals feel pretty good abt playing the Velvets third to sound like what the Starbaskets just might be on the verge of sounding like. First, there is a mountain, then there is no mountain, then there is. Crypto rock illiteration, like fear over Columbia Regional."
11/21/2009 Jescos, The Topless Cowgirl 7" $5.99 People In A Position To Know "The debut recording from the new Tennessee "supergroup" featuring James Jackson Toth (Wooden Wand), Tim Bracy (Mendoza Line), and Bingham Barnes (Glossary) amongst several other local players. Two great songs on colored vinyl, in hand-screened covers. Limited to 500 copies."

12/24/2005 Jesus Balls Yellow cassette $6.99 Skullfucking Tapes "Reissue of cdr. Filthy children committing invocations to electronic spirits and beating their heads on the dusty temple floor."
3/29/2005 Jesus With Me Jesus With Me CD $12.99 Psych-o-Path Records "Sometime in late 1990's four Russians met in NYC and began to jam together. They wanted to reach to the Higher Spirit, so they called their band 'Jesus With Me.' Jesus With Me played heavy psychedelic freakout rock, influenced by Amon Duul I, Faust, Can, High Rise, Keiji Haino and YaHoWha 13."
8/2/2008 Jewell, Ryan Ryan Jewell CDR $9.99 Blackest Rainbow "Short (12minutes) new piece from this Ohio based experimental percussionist who's collaborated with Fossils, Burning Star Core, Graveyards dudes, and Patrick Farmer to name a few. In Ryans words 'it's all acoustic. Supersonic acoustic sine waves interfering with one another making audible sweeps, etc. It's all just a floor tom. Secret fuckin' ninja jedi mind moves and shit'... really minimal and bleak, with an insane climax that'll blow your speakers away! All in hand sprayed, hand inked, hand stamped or stickered sleeves... all entirely individual."
6/27/2009 Jewell, Ryan / Face Place split 7" $3.99 Out There Records "Still don't know if this is 45 rpm or 33 rpm ???? Both sound right to me! Ryan Jewell kicks things off on the A side with a twisting and turning assortment of totally weird and cool sounds . Don't know if this is live Jewell or what ? Sounds like a studio jam or some kind of manipulated sound collage . Ryan is always awesome on stage because you never know what kind of awesome shit he's gonna do , his tapes and CDs are the same way and this 7" is no exception. Flip the record and you got the husband/wife duo of Face Place (Jen Burton of American Jobs / Birds of Hair - and Mark Van Fleet of Sword Heaven ) . This is a live recording and after hearing it I now know what speed the record is because of the crowd noise. Pretty sure I was at this show but I don't remember it being so intense! On record I can turn it up until my brain hurts! Long-overdue vinyl debut from both of these aces! Second release on Out There Home Entertainment . Amazing see-through covers w/ killer clear vinyl ! Nice! " - Tommy Nebula
10/27/2003 JGrzinich / Seth Nehil Confluence CD $13.99 Intransitive "In 1998, American composers John Grzinich and Seth Nehil initiated a process of recording and experimentation that would result in a pair of full-length CDs. The seed of the project originated in Austin, Texas with acoustic recordings of found objects played by large groups. By the end, it had expanded into a three-year, transcontinental exchange of intensive interaction, questioning and dialogue. These works further the artists' interest in physical materials and natural acoustics which are consequently composed into imbedded, altered and engaging structures. Taking form with the integrity of a living organism, these pieces invite the listener to find his way through the reticulated and stratified development of a subtly unfolding, organic sound-body. The first part of this project, ‘Stria’, was published by the Erewhon label (Belgium) earlier this year. Intransitive is now proud to present part two, ‘Confluence’. The exploratory focus of ‘Stria/Confluence’ is the idea of resonance; the phenomenon of natural vibrations that give rise to intensified or stable structures within sound bodies and fields. In the production of these works, the composers' approach to resonance encompassed not only acoustical behavior but also included analogies of the phenomenon in group interaction and/or participation within the social context of sound generating activities. It was again applied to the studio in the use of massive multiplications and layerings, resulting in deeply transformed, evolutionary sound fields. Seemingly infinite layers of minute actions accumulate into a deep wash of sound, not unlike the similarly-minded Jonathan Coleclough or mnortham. Repeated listening reveals more and more subtle details so that the piece appears to change each time it is experienced. Seth Nehil's work with layered acoustic recordings has been heard on his previous releases published by KAON, Alluvial and 20City. Both artists, whose previous duo recordings used the band name Alial Straa, have collaborated extensively with mnortham and Olivia Block as part of Austin's Orogenetics group."

re-structuring found in the tape works of Luc Ferrari and Pierre Schaefer also contributed to the work in both sound and process.

1/20/2015 Jodorowsky, Alejandro El Topo: Soundtrack Album LP $32.99 Real Gone Music "Championed by everybody from John Lennon to Peter Gabriel to Marilyn Manson - and decried by 'establishment' critics ranging from Vincent Canby to Gene Siskel - El Topo remains one of the most controversial movies ever made. Director Alejandro Jodorowsky's bizarre, blood-soaked blend of spaghetti Western, druggy surrealism, Christian allegory, Zen Buddhist themes and avant-garde sensibilities gave rise to the entire 'midnight movie' counterculture phenomenon of the early '70s and forever changed the way adventurous audiences viewed film. Or, for that matter, heard film; for no soundtrack, before or since, has embraced so many styles in its pursuit of spiritual and artistic goals. Atonal, Tibetan Buddhist thighbone trumpets clash with beautiful, even sentimental, chamber orchestra pieces alongside pan flute rhapsodies, brass bands and parlor jazz; that Jodorowsky himself composed the score - after, no doubt, intently studying the work of Morricone - is almost as impressive an artistic achievement as the film itself. Now, Real Gone Music, in partnership with ABKCO Music & Records, is issuing this one-of-a-kind soundtrack album on LP for the first time since the original release produced by Allan Steckler for Apple Records back in 1971. What's more, the four-page booklet boasting some of the film's hallucinogenic imagery that came with the original release will be included in the gatefold LP reissue. Mastered by Joe Yannece at Classic Sound in New York, and produced for reissue by ABKCO's in-house Engineer Teri Landi and Mick Gochanour, with tape transfers by Landi, lacquer cutting by Carl Rowatti at TruTone Mastering and a 180-gram vinyl pressing, Real Gone/ABKCO's release of El Topo on LP fully captures Jodorowsky's singular sonic vision."
1/7/2015 Jodorowsky, Alejandro The Dance of Reality: Original Soundtrack LP $22.99 Real Gone Music "The release in 2014 of The Dance of Reality marked the triumphant return, after a 23-year hiatus, of Alejandro Jodorowsky, the visionary Chilean filmmaker behind cult classics El Topo and The Holy Mountain. In the radiantly visceral autobiographical film, a young Jodorowsky (played by his son, Brontis) is confronted by a collection of compelling characters that contribute to his burgeoning surreal consciousness. Adding to the autobiographical nature of the work, the film was shot in Tocopilla, a coastal town on the edge of the Chilean desert, where the filmmaker was born in 1929. Blending his personal history with metaphor, mythology, and poetry, The Dance of Reality reflects Jodorowsky's philosophy that reality is not objective but rather a 'dance' created by our own imaginations. Jodorowsky's films have always placed a special emphasis on music -- his soundtracks rank as among the most daring and fascinating in film history -- and for The Dance of Reality, Jodorowsky tapped his own son Adan Jodorowsky (aka 'Adanowsky'), whose work as a composer and performer (with Devendra Banhart among others) has won him an international following in his own right. Adanowsky's score is alternately lush and comical, blending brooding string passages with hypnotically repeating piano figures that create a mood that is at times foreboding, at times wistful and, as is always the case with a score to a Jodorowsky film, surreal. As part of its continuing association with ABKCO Music & Records, Inc., Real Gone Music is proud to present the complete soundtrack to The Dance of Reality on LP, mastered by Joe Yannece and with lacquer cutting by Carl Rowatti at Trutone Mastering. The album jacket includes a number of production stills from the film. Alejandro Jodorowsky's tradition of remarkable film soundtracks lives on with The Dance of Reality."
1/7/2015 Jodorowsky, Alejandro The Holy Mountain: Original Soundtrack double LP $38.99 Real Gone Music "One of the ironies of the career of Chilean-born filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky is that while he is best known as a visual stylist, his most avid and loyal champions have often been musicians. When Jodorowsky arrived in New York from Mexico City in 1970 carrying a copy of the then-unreleased El Topo, it was the jazz producer Alan Douglas who bought the distribution rights to the film. When Jodorowsky and Douglas were looking for a venue in which to screen El Topo, it was John Lennon and Yoko Ono who asked for it to run at midnight following their short-film festival at New York's Elgin Cinema. After six months of sold-out midnight screenings at the Elgin, it was Lennon's manager, Allen Klein (ABKCO's founder), who bought the rights to El Topo and agreed to produce its follow-up, The Holy Mountain. And when Jodorowsky wanted, in his words, 'another kind of music -- something that wasn't entertainment, something that wasn't a show, something that went to the soul, something profound,' for the soundtrack to The Holy Mountain, forward came jazz legend Don Cherry and crack studio musician (and one-time Archie) Ron Frangipane to share composing and (along with Jodorowsky) conducting duties. And, boy, did they deliver -- the score to The Holy Mountain is every bit as hallucinatory as the fantastic visual imagery in the film itself. The deep, primordial chants that begin the movie, 'Trance Mutation,' give way to an almost jaunty percussion-and-plucked-strings melody, 'Pissed and Passed Out.' On the next track, 'Violence of the Lambs,' a single flute is slowly joined by a set of mournful strings while, onscreen, Gestapo-like soldiers in gas masks parade with bloody lamb carcasses on sticks. 'Drink It,' an upbeat sitar folk melody, follows, briefly accompanying the main protagonist The Thief's ill-considered decision to guzzle tequila (or sleeping potion). Then there is 'Christs 4 Sale,' a blaring orchestral riff that sounds like it was ripped from a 1950's swords-and-sandals epic. The next track, 'Cast Out and Pissed,' begins with a beelike buzz, then is overwhelmed by a cacophony of drums, horns, and, finally, screaming. 'Eye of the Beholder' which follows, changes moods entirely once again -- a string section swells with overwrought romanticism. (Onscreen, a group of young prostitutes prays in a church. One of them later walks arm and arm with a chimpanzee.) And then there is 'Communion,' a brooding, trumpet-led number that would be at home on the noir-steeped Chinatown soundtrack. (As 'Communion' plays, the Thief is not driving through Los Angeles at night but eating the face off a statue of Christ.) This veritable cornucopia of musical styles would be more than enough to fill an entire movie. It would be more than enough to fill three movies. But in fact, the eight musical compositions described above play entirely in The Holy Mountain's first 24 minutes. Still ahead lie the hard rock of 'Psychedelic Weapons,' the pomp and circumstance of the waltz 'Miniature Plastic Bomb Shop,' the gospel-inflected sax of 'Isla (The Sapphic Sleep),' and so on. Every one of the 24 tracks on the film's soundtrack presents another vertiginous twist in the philosophical and spiritual journey that is The Holy Mountain. Now, Real Gone Music, in association with ABKCO Music & Records, Inc., presents, for the first time ever on vinyl, the original soundtrack to Alejandro Jodorowsky's 1973 masterpiece The Holy Mountain. The double-LP edition features liner notes by New York Times contributor Eric Benson that include exclusive quotes from Jodorowsky himself, festooned with copious production stills. Produced for release by Grammy-winning producer Teri Landi and Mick Gochanour, and mastered from the original tapes by Joe Yannece (with lacquer cutting on the LP by Carl Rowatti at Trutone Mastering), this long-awaited release of Alejandro Jodorowsky's The Holy Mountain: Original Soundtrack offers a major addition to the soundtrack canon and a completely unique listening experience."
1/1/2014 Joe Speedboat s/t 7" $9.99 PBR "Belgian lofi-trio offers their first five recordings on a raw 7" - think of Dead Moon, early GBV, Pink Reason and the australian punk-heroes of the early 80's, with plenty of downervibes. Heavily inspired by small town boredom and heavy drinking. feat. (ex-)members of Edgar Wappenhalter, Pernath, Circle Bros, Sylvester Anfang backing up 30-year old rookie Jelle Vanlerberghe." Edition of 100 copies. "Jelle Vanlerberghe ( Belgium, °1982) spent the first thirty years low profile. To avoid small town boredom, he became an avid collector of the 80's Australian and New Zealand scene, 90's Detroit garagerock and the most interesting acts from that survived the transatlantic experimental and lofi scenes. All of this in Ingelmunster, the town best known for the brewery that produces Kasteelbeer and the endless string of bars along the expressway Kortrijk-Bruges. This steady diet inspired him to work on songs for 10 years - using guitars, violin and vocals. No one ever got to hear them. It wasn't until Jelle turned 30 that he found the right rhythm section to join him. This is where Joe Speedboat comes in. Wim Lecluyse (bass, ao Circle Bros & Pernath) and Steve Marreyt (drums, ao Edgar Wappenhalter & Sylvester Anfang) were planning to start a band together, and were looking for a drummer with a similar vision. Purely based on intuition, Jelle was asked to join. When it turned out he had been secretly writing gems, Steve moved over to the drumkit and Jelle took the microphone and guitar. Jelle did not just recycle old material - the garage meets lofi approach resulted in an awful lot of new material. The first recordings to be officially released on the Toulouse-based label Ploibear Records are these five songs. Songs like 'my sister has been drinking' or 'Eila' have plenty of downervibes in them. 'Van Honsebrouck failed me', the story of life in the shadow of the Kasteelbier-brewery shows how Joe Speedboat sounds as a powertrio, with references to the cassettegods of the nineties. In the meantime, Joe Speedboat has grown into a notorious live-act as well, which resulted in gigs with the likes of Supreme Dicks, Maan, Ed Nolbed and a spot on the prestigious Incubate-festival. What the future holds: Jelle only knows."

6/4/2010 Johansson, Sven-Ake Cymbals In The Night LP $17.99 Brokenresearch "Heavy solo release from deep as Marianas Trench Swedish drummer Sven-Ake Johansson. Johansson is primarily known in the US as the drummer on the two hugely influential Brotzmann recordings: For Adolphe Sax and Machine Gun. However, the Berlin-based percussionist/composer/filmmaker/performance artist/painter -- all of which he is remarkably adept at -- also has numerous FMP releases and a well documented relationship with Alexander Schlippenbach. Notable contributions to the canon of experimental music include his Concert for 12 Tractors and performance piece for movement performed with Neubauten singer Nick Cave guitarist Blixa Bargeld. Johansson's mode here is pure clarity in terms of form, technique and content. Quiet as a kitten on clouds in social settings, this recording ranges from pure Krupa swing on corrugated cardboard *cymbals* to dirty styrofoam shrieks and then even further out to close-mic'd cymbal investigations of tone and vibration. In performance, he's a pro and even in a recorded situation he manages to engage the listener with humor and experiment. Pro printed sleeve/edition of 300."
9/18/2003 Johnny Hash Beyond Rome 7" $5.99 Rocket Recordings "Johnny Hash features members of Royal Trux, 68 Comeback and The Screws. After releasing records on the ultra-hip In The Red Records in L.A we are proud to unleash this formidable duo on the UK for the first time. This 4 track single of psycho blues is the bastard child of Pussy Galore and Spacemen 3!"
1/20/2015 Johnson, Philip Youth in Mourning LP $16.99 Superior Viaduct "Philip Johnson, a lost figure in the dark waters of early industrial music, self-released over 25 tapes starting in the late '70s. As a part of the "cassette culture" in the UK, he produced ethereal soundscapes, damaged electronics and undanceable drum patterns, along with homemade j-cards. For his first and only LP, 1982's Youth in Mourning, Johnson further refined his approach with mesmerizing audio collages and Mark-E-Smith-ian vocals to make one of the most unique documents of the era. The song "C81," commenting on NME's compilation of the same name, expresses contempt with know-it-all indie culture that was similarly reflected 20 years later in LCD Soundsystem's "Losing My Edge." Fans of the degenerate tale in The Velvet Underground's "The Gift" will appreciate Johnson's "The Karate Kicking Girl of New Invention." Youth in Mourning is a personal record, yet fearless. It pulls back the bedroom curtain, revealing (as Johnson writes in the liner notes) "the sound of a warm-air heater on a cold afternoon and a cassette being pushed into the deck and switched on." This first-time reissue comes from the original master tapes. Recommended for fans of Cabaret Voltaire, John Bender and The Shadow Ring.
3/29/2005 Johnston, Caleb untitled 10" $12.99 no label / self-released "Twig's (Nautical Almanac) brother lays down a scorcher worthy of the family name from breathtaking highs to gut-trembling lows this electronic journey will clear your soul and mind."

Caleb Johnston's new 12". This more textural follow up to last years 10" really queefters. Baltimore's DM is back from tour with shinth madicians Sejayno and this time brings sawed strings and gargled vocals along for the party. this is twig from nautical almanac's brother and has a similar sound. this one has similarly nameless packaging to the 10" but this one instead of the abstract b+w paintprint is silkscreened in fluorescent green."

Imagine this collection of art noise freakazoids and psychedelic wise-apples under the Nuits de la Fondation Maeght spell, complete with double drum attack, bleating sax, crazed vocals, and stoned guitar."
3/1/2007 Jones, Glenn Against Which the Sea Continually Beats CD $12.99 Strange Attractors Audio House "Since 1989, Glenn Jones has led Boston's "avant-garage" instrumental rock band Cul de Sac, whose musical adventures are documented on nine albums to date. A thirty+-year devotee of the so-called "Takoma school," Jones has written extensively on two of the steel-string guitar's leading lights: John Fahey, with whom he was friends for nearly twenty-five years, and Robbie Basho. In 2004, Jones stepped out of the long shadow cast by Takoma's guitar visionaries and offered his own "new possibility"-This Is the Wind That Blows It Out, an impeccable album of acoustic 6 & 12-string beauty released to rave review. Against Which the Sea Continually Beats, Jones's second album, is an indisputable triumph of acoustic guitar composition, a reverential and innovative melding of sound and form. The eleven tunes on Against Which the Sea Continually Beats travel from Delta to Appalachia, from classical to a cinematic sort of folk sound in a language that is purely imbued in the artist's own dialect. Graceful and subtle, resonating with confidence and power, Against Which the Sea Continually Beats is a masterpiece of "guitar soli" by a truly singular talent."
7/1/2004 Jones, Glenn This is the Wind that Blows it Out (Solos for 6 & 12 String Guitar) CD $12.99 Strange Attractors Audio House "Most folks know Glenn Jones as guitarist extraordinaire for Cul de Sac, in which his idiosyncratic blend of surf, Middle Eastern, Americana and acid guitar innovations are a signature of the band's much-ballyhooed sound. In the spirit of the great Takoma Records releases of the 60's and early 70's, This is the Wind that Blows it Out winds its way through rich expanses of varied stylistic terrain, charting a rich and unique course. 'American Primitive' folk and blues, Spanish guitar, slack-key, rustic Mississippi Delta slide and classical forms cozy up fluently to one another, sometimes within the same tune. Glenn Jones' fingerstyle and slide technique is on dazzling display, guiding the music across scenic vistas of mood and color. As interest in the old guard of steel-string innovators John Fahey, Robbie Basho, Leo Kottke and Peter Lang has been renewed with earnest, a new fraternity of Guitar Soli tunesmiths has come to the fore - Steffen Basho-Junghans, Jack Rose, Harris Newman and Glenn Jones. Along with his guitar-slinging brethren, Jones steps out of the long shadow cast by the Takoma stable and offers up 'A New Possibility'."
11/23/2004 Jones, Joe Fluxus Ain't Dead LP $14.99
"The music machines of legendary Fluxus artist Joe Jones are a paradox of prepared sounds voicing astoundingly human bursts of free-flight sonic caterwaul. Why is it that a roomful of musicians can't muster the sound of these music machines? The sounds herein could make tears flow like rivers from countless communal bangs. The sounds from this tape are so rare that many historians claim they don't exist. Jone's orchestras were debuted on Yoko Ono's 'Fly' and he was a curio to the Beatles. 'Joe Jones left his home in Tucson Arizona, bought some California grass.' Not him? Who cares. Bring the Noise."

2/24/2002 Joshua Gold Cosmos CD $14.99 Feather One's Nest Records "Based in Western Massachusetts, Joshua plays occasional live shows that never fail to stir the spirit-pot. Whether beaming layered vocals and effects-trammeled whistling (whistling!) into the anticipatorily puckered o-minds of the audience, paying tribute to the great Jansch, or rambling down forgotten paths w/ archaic stringed instruments, the guy never fails to heat up brain coils that I'd forgotten I have. In many ways, however, his most potent material is crafted in dark singularity, late at night, w/ tape rolling and moist nodes of fever pulsing gently in the dark, soft air. On this album, helped by kindred souls from Tower Recordings, Six Organs of Admittance, and Dredd Foole, Joshua achieves a kind of dream-loaded perfection that is the purview of very few. As the fools in the mainstream underground rush towards a platonic ideal that dehumanizes the process of creation, Joshua embraces the quivering meat wheel that rotates in the center of all humankind. It is nothing less than a pinnacle of splendor. Subtlely acknowledging influences that range from C.O.B. to the Guild of Temporal Adventurers, it moves through the fair like a wraith." - Byron Coley.
4/19/2004 Joshua Life Less Lost CD $14.99 Spirit of Orr "The beloved second album from a quiet pillar of western Massachusetts free music community, now available in an easy-to shelve jewel case. Mr Burkett sits as core to the western Massachusetts homemade psych-folk movement and pot lucks as any of the other friends From his work with prime movers such as Shrin, Vermonster, Wormdoom, Parrotprobe, and Borb to sit-ins with Sunburned Hand of the Man, Six Organs of Admittance, Tower Recordings and Crystalized Movements. 2001's 'Gold Cosmos' album was critically adored (the Wire, Mojo) and a mail order favorite." Recommended!
2/19/2004 Joshua Jugband 5 Damascus Doldrum CDR $29.99 Ramadam "Sometimes I have a hard time explaining to people how dark clouds of guitar feedback can strike me as so beautiful. I honestly doubt that Swedish Joshua Jugband 5's Damascus Doldrum will persuade the agnostics, but to me it's a great example of just that, as it's almost perfect in the sense that it bursts with life and emotion, despite being heavily experimental. Maybe it's the layered acoustic guitar buried in shards of feedback in the first track, or maybe it's the fact that the second track takes us to Syria with Middle Eastern, non-word hums that makes it wonderful. I'm not sure, but I know this disc offers three long tracks with some of the tastiest feedback, vague folk structures and highly psychedelic guitar workouts laid to magnetic tape during 2003." -Broken Face #18

5/16/2010 Jouurney Dancers In The Time-Flux c24 cassette $7.99 Digitalis Limited "Synthetic dreams blossom underneath perfect french skies, offering arpeggiated gifts to a sun god that never even existed in the first place. each step is liquid and melodic to a degree, looking for another avenue to paint in electric blue. on this debut our french explorer wants to cruise the high seas on a blast of square waves. this time-flux is a warm place to be. jouurney's quixotic sounds have you floating in and out of consciousness, submerged beneath nobody drones and pink sunsets. of course, everything gets thrown out of whack for the last two minutes and the blitzed out beats and cacaphonic synth mayhem that ensues. it's an exclamation point for sure. edition of 72, pro-dubbed & imprinted."
5/16/2011 Jovontaes The Thief of Baghdad cassette $5.99 DNT "Named after 90s street skater Jovontae Turner, Jovontaes are a group of kids from the Lexington, KY community, tearing up both the psych and skateboarding scenes. Not doing what you'd expect from a bunch of skaters, these dudes are making caveman psych rock (with hints of surf and kraut) like a scaled down Eternal Tapestry yet still sounding way weirder than the standard psych-jam band trying to live in the past of the 60s. Not too detached from last year's rad tape on Eggy, on this one you get almost 50 minutes of songs, closing out the second side with a sprawling free-form musique-concrete jam piece. Recorded late 2010 in their Void Skateshop, (which apparently is right around the corner from Caboladies' old recording space). Hand-numbered edition of 100 pro-dubbed clear tapes (with a lil' skatebuddy imprinting) and absolutely stunning full-color psychedelic artwork by the equally beautiful young artist Camille Bryant."

4/10/2015 Joyner, Simon Grass, Branch & Bone LP $19.99 Woodsist "Renowned American singer-songwriter Simon Joyner first came to prominence during the lo-fi movement of the early ’90s alongside contemporaries like Will Oldham, Peter Jefferies, the Mountain Goats, Smog and Alastair Galbraith. Joyner was championed early on by the late British DJ John Peel, who famously played Joyner’s 1994 LP, The Cowardly Traveller Pays His Toll, start to finish on one of his BBC programs, making Joyner more well known overseas than in his own country. Considered a forefather of the Omaha music scene, he’s released critically acclaimed albums on various independent labels every few years for over two decades. He keeps a low profile and tours only occasionally, spending most of his time working and raising a family, allowing writing and music to remain an artistic outlet rather than an occupation.Grass, Branch & Bone is Joyner’s thirteenth proper album and a sonic departure from 2012’s Ghosts. While that record was a double-disc collection of dark, dissonant songs confronting death and loss in the vein of Neil Young’s Tonight’s the Night, this new one is sparse by comparison, running with the likes of other singer-songwriter outcast aftermath albums like Dylan’s John Wesley Harding, Gene Clark’s White Light, David Blue’s Stories, Jerry Jeff Walker’s Five Years Gone, Townes Van Zandt’s Our Mother the Mountain and Cohen’s Recent Songs. It’s a natural progression—after a funeral, one takes stock and reflect upon his or her own life. Grass, Branch & Bone is a song-cycle of short stories about time and memory, full of people the listener has known and even may have been."
“Pound for pound Simon Joyner is my favorite lyricist of all time. He has shades of all the greats (Van Zandt, Cohen, Dylan) but exists in a space all his own. Since I first heard his music at the tender age of twelve not a year has passed that I haven’t waited for and been rewarded with an amazing Simon Joyner release of one kind or another. This year is no exception. He truly is an American songwriting treasure. It is my hope that more people will discover his music and share in the unique joy that it brings.” - Conor Oberst “My favorite poet is Simon Joyner.” - Gillian Welch
11/23/2004 Joyner, Simon and Dennis Callaci Stranger Blues one-sided LP $9.99 Catsup Plate “Dennis Callaci and Simon Joyner are two of the foremost channelers of ‘the song.’ Simon is known for his solo recordings, with releases on Jagjaguwar, Truckstop, Shrimper, and Sing Eunuchs!, among others. Dennis plays in Refrigerator and was the sole voice behind the criminally underheard Paste. They are singer-songwriters in that they write songs and sing them, but that appellation dumbs down and sanitizes what they do. I think it is more accurate to say that both have a way of tapping into the stream of collective creativity that flows from God-knows-when through to the present and beyond. Their songs have a gravity to them, an ‘old soul,’ as it were, that cannot be mistaken. There are a few stylistic precursors to their work - precursors that have been well-documented previously - but the songs they write and sing tap into something more ineffable, timeless, and grave. The set comprises three of Simon's songs and two by Dennis, all recorded live in the Callaci living room to what seems to be a single microphone. The nontraditional (or better: non-studio) setting adds a palpable sensation of space to the recordings - by space I do not simply mean the warmth of the room tone, but actual space: backing vocals and spare piano or guitar lines arise in such a way that you are aware of the physical geography of the room. You can hear Simon singing along with Dennis from an actual distance away; his voice is (literally) distant and all the more forlorn. The guitar lines that Dennis adds to flesh-out Simon's songs have the same eerie effect. This sense of space underscores two seemingly contradictory strengths about these recordings. On one hand, these songs are beautifully lonely and spare, highlighted by the echoes and distance in the room. At the same time, it is clear that two songwriters who know and love the other's work, who are very much working in tandem to build upon each others strengths. Single edition of 500 one-sided LPs. Silkscreened and hand assembled chipboard jackets in a ‘traditional’ Catsup Plate brown butchers tape design scheme.”
11/21/2009 Joynes, C Revenants, Prodigies And The Restless Dead LP $15.99 Immune "Immune is proud to present a deluxe and limited edition vinyl version of the brand new album from British guitarist C Joynes. This is the second widely available album from Joynes (after last year's God Feeds The Ravens) and is being released simultaneously on CD by Bo'Weavil Recordings. C Joynes is a musician whose playing has consistently invoked a broad and shifting stream of inspirations. As a guitarist, there is no doubt that Joynes has been influenced by some of the most idiosyncratic finger-pickers of the last 40 years and beyond, but his music goes far beyond simply this. His recordings have always offered many dimensions for the listener to explore, be it through solo acoustic pieces, larger ensemble work, or the intimate use of improvisations and hill recordings. Building on previous albums, Revenants, Prodigies & The Restless Dead is a more expansive affair. Joined on a number of these tunes by an assortment of friends and collaborators, a range of acoustic and vintage electronic instruments all make appearances, gradually fleshing out some of the ideas and direction that Joynes clearly has imprinted in his mind's eye, adding colour and hue to some of these beautiful compositions. While Joynes remains at home with English and American forms of folk music, the twelve pieces on this album continue to demonstrate the extent to which other traditions, both eastern and western, have an equal and instinctive pull on his music. Listen to the detuned and prepared guitar of 'Nyambai Sawmill', which seems equally drawn out of late 60s classical experimentalism as it does to sounds from the Western Sahara. The LP is pressed on high quality virgin vinyl at RTI in a hand-numbered edition of 500 copies for the world. Included is an insert and free MP3 download coupon
7/30/2006 JRP JRP 3" DVD-R $8.99 Jyrk "Yeah.. NEW SERIES OF RELEASES.. all 3" DVDRs.. the first one is the inspiration for the series.. we've got TONS of stuff lined up.. probably will be Eric Ostrowski next and then william sabiston or something... anyway.. I set up a show for BONUS at ATA in SF awhile back and Jamie Potter from Bonus scraped together this vid before their show.. all concertgoers were absolutely stunned by their piece of totally unflinching pristine minimalism... The DVD is an AMAZING work of video feedback.. Basically, the visuals are this constantly evolving feedback mandala..... it rolls on and on for 20 minutes and is totally alive. Jamie's soundtrack is equally stunning and not dissimilar to his work in Bonus, except possibly slowed down... This one's perfect for a night of cough syrup and tons of weed.. I can't even verbalize how stoked I am on this film. absolutely top notch work from Mr. Potter. Edition of 90." - label
2/21/2009 JS666 Freerave Manifesto CDR $7.99 267 Lattajjaa "JS666 is just one man, but his powers of musical destruction are limitless. this time it's not just frantic drill'n'bass mash-up anthems but js666 goes back to his more experimental arty roots, and this means art with a capitol F."
11/15/2008 Ju-Sei Taigun-Yuei CDR $10.99 Black Petal "A japanese duo (1 boy/1 girl) - weird but catchy pop music.. very great band! i guess fans of Tenniscoats, Maher Shalal Hash Baz, etc will like them, although they sound pretty different to that.."
8/28/2007 Julie Mittens, The April/June LP $14.99 Rococo Records "April/June...recorded in our rehearsal room first part of 2006 in Leiden, The Netherlands. The tracks are from two different sessions hence April/June (we like to keep our titles simple). The idea was to make a cyclical work (round like an lp) so there's no side A or B. The listener can start anywhere. The tracks are just there...they do not really start or end and they seem to add to each other somehow after a while (at least that's my experience)... Although the tracks feel like a relaxed ride at times, they where recorded at the usual intense volume levels...really, really loud! Don't know how they came out this way... All four tracks had this same 'relaxed' feeling about them so that's why we decided to put them together. Our tracks have no name, no number, they are what they are..."
2/21/2009 Julie's Haircut & Sonic Boom N-Waves / U-Waves 10" $12.99 A Silent Place "In late September 2005, Sonic Boom (a.k.a. Pete Kember, founding member of Spacemen 3, Spectrum, and Experimental Audio Research) met Julie's Haircut at Studio Alpha in Bologna to cooperate with the final editing of their new album. This was a new starting point for Julie's Haircut in the field of music research-only a small portion of the three days of studio recordings were released on that album. N-Waves/U-Waves contains, for the first time, two takes from that session. "Gemini Pt. 1 & Pt. 2" is here in its first take, while "Scarfo Spanks DC" is a completely unreleased improvisation. Limited edition pressing of 524 copies in deluxe cover with foil stamping."

July July CD $19.99 Aftermath "One of the all-time great psych albums originally issued on the Major Minor label in the UK, and on Epic in the USA in 1968. There's no way to overstate the excellence of the album, with it's eerie psych style (check out, for example, 'Dandelion Seeds' and 'Hallo to Me'), Indian-influenced chord sequences, heavily reverbed vocals, plus expert studio trickery (tape loops / phasing, etc.) of uncommon brilliance from producer/solo artist Tom Newman, and Jade Warriors Tony Duhig and John Field."
9/23/2004 Jumala Jumala CDR $12.99 Raivo Productions “Jumala plays improvised music, you can call free jazz or free improvisation, it don't care. Jumala doesn't hate melody, but doesn't necessarily need it either. It moves in the mystical realms between the glorious lands of FMP and BYG, ESP and Incus, but does occasionally find it self in the overcrowded folky forests of Finland (oh my god!). While residing in the woods, though, it tries to stick some sticks and punch some punches at the regular inhabitants (yeah!). The CDr will be released as an ultra unlimited issue of some initial copies, + n repressings (with some changes in artwork, naturally!). So, you'll probably get your copy, but you shouldn't sleep on you heels either.” “’Rarely have I heard worse music (quality of the sound left aside). The piece consists of amateurish fooling around and radiates unintelligence and nasty atmosphere’. This is how Jumala’s selftitled cd-r –release has been reviewed at the Suomijazz (Finnish jazz) forum. I’ll admit it: that’s how it pretty much sounds like if you listen to the mp3-samples provided by the Raivo & Rypäs -recordlabel at their website. Luckily I’ve learned ages ago that there’s two things you shouldn’t trust: 1) music samples found in the Internet and 2) music reviews made by jazzpeople. The band itself defines it’s music as either free jazz or free improvisation. I myself would rather choose the latter, since in jazz, no matter how free or not, there’s a musical agreement of sorts to be followed. I reckon that the reason why misters W. J. Joutsenkanerva and V.Sänki have decided to call Jumala’s music jazz, has just mostly been to provoke. This is backed by the way how they have frequently commented in some of the forums in the Internet (among others the previously mentioned Suomijazz-forum). This I do not mean as a negative point. On the contrary, in my opinion, sometimes certain parties are to be deliberately provoked. Jumala’s record consists of eight tracks taking up to 46 minutes. As the basic structure there’s a more or less freely jolting percussion backing, on top of which various recorders or harmonica scream and howl. There’s also a bit of human voice included that sounds like the evening prayers of a 15 or something year old school boy before passing out. I must admit, the tracks mostly do the trick. They manage to create an atmosphere, sometimes surprisingly tight, and isn’t that just what music should essentially be about? In addition the compositions (or improvisations) function specifically in the album context, which I always appreciate. Jumala’s album has been logically compiled and it’s high points are evenly in the beginning, the middle and the end. That way there’s no lapse in the listeners interest and attention. From the whole the first and the last track stand out because of their different style and feeling. The first track ‘Nousemus’ (Ascension) is like a demented church hymn, that nevertheless manages to increase it’s tension to the very end. Ending track ‘Vaaleiden impien kirmaus’ (The prance of the fair maidens) is downright funny and sounds just like the title suggests. All in all Jumala is a positive surprise and I wait eagerly, will the duo be releasing more material. It seems you can listen to these fellows live at Forum Box in Helsinki, visit if you are willing and able.” - Jaakob Karhu.
