11/1/2014 V/A 1970's Algerian Proto-Rai Underground CD $16.99 Sublime Frequencies "This is a CD reissue of the limited LP pressing which sold out almost immediately upon release in 2008. This is Rai music from Algeria as you've not heard it before. In the early 1970s, a new group of singers and musicians were operating on the northwest coast, and what they pioneered was a sound that eventually reached worldwide status by the end of the decade; however, their names are relatively unknown to this day outside Algeria. This crucial and defining period of the development of Raï is criminally ignored and overlooked by Algerian music historians and Raï fans. Due to censorship and government-controlled music diffusion, this scene and lyrical style was forced underground and banned from broadcasts, yet slowly built a small following around the seaside cabarets of Wahran (Oran). This period witnessed the rise of artists such as Groupe El Azhar ("The Flowers" group) and Messaoud Bellemou, who can comfortably be considered the Godfather of the modern Rai sound. His group, L'Orchestre Bellemou, rewrote a heritage of centuries by using modern instruments and especially the trumpet, which became, during the 1970s, the backbone of the Wahrani genre. Reinterpreting the gasba melodies on trumpet, Bellemou backed singers such as Boutaiba Sghir and Sheikh Benfissa who carried on the lyrical tradition of their forefathers singing about daily preoccupations and problems as well as love affairs, alcohol, or simply owning an automobile! Toward the late 1970s, Cheb Zergui brought a newer ingredient: an electric guitar with a wah-wah pedal. Thankfully, the late 1960s saw the development of vinyl pressing in Algeria. This new industry allowed many small artists including the Wahrani "scene" to record and release singles documenting their repertoire. This compilation is a selection of this proto-Rai scene's vinyl 45s. CD insert features photos of the musicians & informative liner notes by the man who compiled it, Hicham Chadly."

1/22/2011 V/A A Collection of 23c Cassette Splits in 2009 CD $12.99 Oms-b "Features Acre, Yellow Crystal Star, SisSisters, Bill Doob, Cornelius F. Van Stafrin III, Pariah Veil. Acre delivers a stunning expressive progression of dense electronic drone. Pariah Veil produces superior tonal drones encased in a swarm of decomposition. 6 tracks by Yellow Crystal Star ranging from 7 seconds to 7 minutes including singing, tape manipulation, and guitar soundscapes. Easy listening meditative dense feedback and tape warbles pieced together like a chopped up mixed tape, endings here beginnings there. Cornelius F. Van Stafrin III's compositional sound narrative evokes imagery of escaping a dungeon of concrete and metal with an ominous gatekeeper, crawling out to a soundscape of haunting piano interspersed with skin-crawling bowed cymbals and crystal drones, evolving into an electronic storm. Bill Doob presents 3 tracks of loops and tape manipulation, some quirky some less so. Slowed down chants and drums in an erie atmosphere make up the first track, looped vocal samples and found sounds make up the second track, third track dance beat tape manipulation. The Sissisters track included here is noticeably different from most every other release under this project. Very minimal meditative drone produced by a Lowrey Organ. The original cassette issue of this track was only 11:30 minutes long (being cut for time). The full length version of the recording is presented on this CD release, coming out at 16:15."

4/3/2011 V/A Agdam CD $11.99 Agdam "The past few years have seen a virtual explosion in documentation of the various tendrils of the UK underground that sprouted in all directions from The A Band. And no matter how you feel about the reformatted post-Campbell/Youngs incarnation their function as a lightning rod for some of the most creative weirdo/oddball DIY musicians throughout the late 80s/early 90s is undeniable. For anyone jonesing for a deeper pass through the various off-shoots and ad hoc ensembles they attracted then Agdam is just gravy, a compilation featuring some of first remotely available evidence of legendary one-shot and on-going projects from players like Richard Youngs, Neil Campbell, Stream Angel, Stewart Walden et al, all compiled from the deepest recesses of Neil Campbell's legendary suitcase. Possibly the most exciting unearthing comes from Richard Youngs and Stream Angel circa 1989 with a track from their much-whispered-about Gay Animal Women project that is simply phenomenal; with a crude Throbbing Gristle/Public Image Limited style Death Disco rhythm driving soaring Ceacescu-era reverb vocals into the heavens. The notorious Well Crucial, one of the key 'connecting' groups in the whole scene and featuring Stewart and Martin Walden, at last throw up some quantifiable evidence of their non-existent reign via a very early 1986 recording that features torrential DIY concrete that feels like an eccentric English cousin of the central LAFMS document Dennis Duck Goes Disco. There's a great trio track, an excerpt from one of many never-available LPs, from Neil Campbell, Stewart Walden and A Band mainstay Jim Plaistow recorded in December 1990 that combines VU Murder Mystery style vocal confusion with pastoral acoustic English psych. Campbell also contributes a solo piece, a stunning slice of Eternal Music recorded during his tenure with Vibracathedral Orchestra and with a similar non-stop euphoric aspect to the mothership. What else? Oh yeah, there's a solo Stewart Walden piece from 1990 with primitive downer keyboards and some cracked/unsettling vocals, a rare document of Edinburgh's consummate scum/DIY weirdos Sepopeplel, a duo with connections to both The A Band and Prick Decay/Decaer Pinga, and a final Afterclap piece that documents a particularly heavyweight A Band post-reformation line-up that sees Neil Campbell and Sticky Foster back in the fold alongside Pascal Nichos of Part Wild Horses Mane On Both Sides. There was a time when I would constantly look to the USA or Japanese underground as exemplars of modern DIY freak but a massive document like this works as a reminder of just how insanely creative and fertile the UK scene was and continues to be. A major historical unearthing and a jaw-dropping snapshot of one of the most exciting 'moments' in England's hidden reverse. All hand-made sleeves, every one unique, reputedly an edition of 500 copies but who knows? Here's Neil Campbell with the full rundown: "Celebrating aspects of the multi-tentacled freewheeling monster-truck madness that was and is The A Band. Featuring archive material by key players in the band, recorded between 1986 and 2007. Kicking off with a solo track from Stewart Walden's golden age of singer-songwriting, "Mmmmorning" features Stewart's highly original power-starving (ab)use of a casio keyboard, over which he laments for not being able to stay in bed all day. Gay Animal Women was Stream Angel's late-80s multi-media project, largely solo but often featuring people who would go on the play major parts in The A Band. "Children on Fire" is a 23 minute excerpt from an hour-long performance in Nottingham in 1989. Stream set up a system of slowly evolving loops and beats, let it run for a long long time, then gradually added a variety of singers to maintain a constantly peaking state of semi-verbal ecstacy. For this portion Stream and Richard Youngs soar through sheets of stuttering reverb while the loops shimmer and shake underneath. Well Crucial was the conceptual precursor of The A Band, formed by brothers Stewart and Martin Walden to expand the possibilities they opened up in their legendarily WTF duo The Strolling Ones. They eventually enlisted scores of people from all over the UK, many of whom would never meet, to form a virtual band, prone to pre-internet style postal collaborations and unilateral one-off guerilla performances. "English Second Language" is one of the earliest Well Crucial tracks, a maddening and mind-melting solo Martin Walden plunderphonic workout, where overlaid locked-grooves are interspersed with recordings of Martin's repeated call-ins to bemused local radio quiz programmes. For a few years at the end of the 80s and start of the 90s, Stewart Walden and Neil Campbell were a cabaret-style duo, specialising in abrupt, absurd and abject "pop" tunes. They recorded several LPs of songs, most of them unreleased and willfully obscure. "Morons" is the title track from their second LP, where they are joined by A Band founder Jim Plaistow on guitar for a comparatively mellow acoustic come-down. It's easy to have fun when you're a moron, indeed. There have been few groups as obscure as Edinburgh's Sepopeplel, who existed in the late-90s, consisting most often of husband and wife duo Stewart Greenwood and Minty Cracknell. Stewart was a late-period A Band stalwart and occasional Prick Decay collaborator, and it really shows. This live excerpt is a fine example of their self-styled "Viking Soul Music", with blocks of radio static breaking open to reveal a tender clarinet and accordion duet at its core. Neil Campbell's solo track comes from a period post-A Band, pre-Astral Social Club, when he was a member of Vibracathedral Orchestra. A live excerpt with twisting loops and strings that could, and probably did, go on all night. Afterclap was the first significant appearance by The A Band in nearly 15 years, a "remorphing" for the Warrington Festival of Experimental Music in 2007. For this performance, included here in its 33 minute entirety, the 12 piece band included several old-guard members (Stewart Keith, Neil Campbell, Sticky Foster etc), abetted by younger players such as 15 year old Megan Fletcher-Cutts, who previously played with the band as a 6 month old baby back in the early 90s, and drummer Pascal Nichols from the fantastic Part Wild Horses Mane on Both Sides. The ensuing ruckus is a timely restating of the visceral oomph and non-generic weirdo blare the A Band first unloaded on the world back in the early 90s, and a reminder that they continue to do so to this day." - Neil Campbell. Very highly recommended!" - Volcanic Tongue

5/8/2012 V/A Black Mass Rising 3xLP box $39.99
"A kind of philosophy arose in the medieval period obsessed with the occult power of precious stones and gems. People believed that these stones were invested with the powers of the stars, a way to deliver the magical virtue of the heavens. The soundtrack to Black Mass Rising, which accompanies a film by Bruxelles artist Shazzula Nebula, is maybe invested with similar kind of occult powers. But as well as giving significance to the individual songs, the soundtrack creates its own "mass": the way the film is marketed and distributed through social media groups and performances at international festivals link together elements of a global music scene. The project seems to unconsciously draw from the traditions of the French symbolists, where words are inadequate tools to express reality and must be subordinated to symbolism, imagery, and sound in highly structured poetic formats. So Shazzula has structured her images of the ritualistic gestures and actions of the global underground into 22 filmic sections matched with a selection of music by 22 artists, such as Mater Suspiria Vison, Sylvester Anfang II, Burial Hex and Master Musicians of Bukkake. This April, the soundtrack will be released as a limited edition box set triple LP release, as if the sound was so ethereal the world needed it in a more concrete form." Edition of 500 copies were pressed. 333 of these come in this version.

4/10/2009 V/A Bright and Dark Light 4 x cassette $21.99 Earjerk 4xc20+ in box. "Sidelong pieces by 8 artists. Burial Hex, Sorc'henn, Drunjus, Crystal Dragon, Teeth collection, Black Sparrow, Pan to Scratch, Taikuri Tali. Each artist was asked to contribute a side long piece representing light or darkness. I gotta say, this one is heavy on the darkside... Sorc'henn - A Dozen Moons against the Sun - This is a soundtrack to a haunting. A wandering ghost floating through streets of drizzling rain. The groans of the not quite dead. A distant rumble of thunder is heard through a haze of lamentation. Regret, misery, and abandonment.. Teeth Collection - untitled - A metallic (in the literal sense) symphony starts out this piece. Activated and bowed metal sounds build to a frenzy as a bed of noise creeeeps in behind and gradually envelops the metal sounds creating a cold fog of swirling texture that is truly entrancing. Drunjus - Silo (version) - A deep gutteral drone created in a silo (designed by a student of Frank Lloyd Wright) and pitched down. Waaaay down. While we weren't looking Pat Best of Pelt sneeked in and contributed gong flourishes. That didn't make it in the liner notes, but it's true! Thanks Patrick! Crystal Dragon - Sirens of Hyperspace - A total space odyssey! This is some dreamy analog synth action from the Dragon. Someone needed to shed a little light, so the Dragon steps up. Amethyst mountains rising from a pink bubbling haze of 50's science fiction soundtrack sounds. Black Sparrow - untitled - A bit lighter now. Black Sparrow takes us on a flight above the clouds. As our shadow passes the moon we can hear below us a howling wolf chorus of analog synth. Burial Hex - untitled - A dark journey through scraping cemetery gates with rolling sarcophagi stones and bones Pan to Scratch - August 2008 V - Pan to Scratch presents us with another organic cassette composition. A true 'Sound Sculpture', this piece is a layering of tones upon tones. The original tone being inspired by a captured environmental ambiance and then enhanced with several moog drones. Once the initial drones were laid out, (layered over) a loose pattern began to emerge. This pattern was then used as a skeleton to build the piece, each successive layer adding to and changing the course of the pattern. This was repeated until the piece was 'finished', the tones gradually fading out and leaving only the original ambiance. Taikuri Tali - untitled - Spectacular contribution from these Finnish freakers! Taikuri Tali (here composed of Antti Tolvi, Peko Kappi and Niko-matti Ahti) contribute a piece so out there that I have No idea whats happening on this recording. What I Imagine: A weird squeak-toy, spring peeper drone with AM frequency fiddle and electronic bull roarer/Goose duo...then the elf dervishes start in and it just gets weirder from there...".

4/1/2003 V/A Bulb Singles #2 CD $12.99 Bulb Records "Continuing the assault. This edition of Bulb singles cover the years 1996-2000, the wonder years. When present 'underground' labels were in diapers, Bulb was peddling these testaments to failure to every Joe that would give it a listen. Where many of Bulb's peers have given in to economics and life (weakness) Bulb stupidly maintained its footing and now is still around to be able to present this collection to the buying public. Everybody won't like everything on this collection but surely everyone who listens will reconsider the endless quagmire that is independent music today. Going from the garage freakishness of the Demolition Doll Rods (now In The Red), we get taken through the Tweezers, The many Moods of Marlon Magas (now of Magas), Mr. Velocity Hopkins (now of 25 Suaves, Danse Asshole), Galen (Wolf Eyes), are tracks from Quintron and Flossie and the Unicorns, 25 Suaves, King Brothers (also now on In The Red Records), Japanese rockers Voodoo Boots, and the Wolf Eyes 'Fortune Dove' 12" (which featured a rare remix by the now famous Andrew WK).

11/2/2011 V/A Clandestine Cassette Series # Two cassette $6.99 Northern Spy "In the time between the cassette's heyday as a miracle that made music portable and its demise and subsequent resurgence, a number of sound artists have taken to it as a new means of production. Much like the way hip-hop DJs turned the vinyl record from a storage tool to a production tool, the artists on Northern Spy's second Clandestine Cassette use magnetic tape as a pliable medium for storing and altering sound. Author, journalist and WFMU personality Kurt Gottschalk invited four sound artists making beautiful transmutations from the medium to contribute tracks to the cassette compilation. It's tapes of tapes. Tape on tape. The sound of sound. Music as sculpture. Prerecorded and magnetic. Get two so you'll have one to manipulate yourself." Featured Artists: Aki Onda, Nonhorse, Bonnie Jones , Jason Lescaleet

11/17/2007 V/A Compact Listen CD $13.99 Claudia "From the active scene in New Zealand, where everybody seems to be making music, hails the CLaudia label, of whom we reviewed releases before. But now they venture out to releasing real CDs, and like a young label would the first real CD is a compilation, showcasing only thirteen of the talents from the world down under. We come across well-known names such as Greg Malcolm, Metal Rouge, Mhfs, Sam Hamilton, Rosy Parlane, Antony Milton, but also Stefan Neville, The Futurians, Sweetcakes, Jane Austen and the very dutch name of Arie Hellendoorn. Throughout the music is experimental, working out in different directions. Drone like, lo-fi guitar playing, computerized glitch drones, and more straight forward improvised music. There is however a strong element of 'atmospheric mood music' to be detected in all of these tracks, even in the more heavy outing of The Futurians or Stefan Neville. Tracks are throughout short and to the point and none of them is a real high flyer, but there isn't also a real weak link. A good overview this compilation of just a tiny bit of a big scene." -Vital Weekly
2/23/2004 V/A Cottage Industrial Vol. 1 CDR $8.99 Humbug "The title of this compilation is a program by and of itself: D.I.Y. noise-based experimental music. The Humbug label has done an excellent job at selecting a varied international roaster. The quality of the contributions is high almost across the board, only a couple tracks failing to deliver something original or daring. The album?s title is a bit misleading: this is not Industrial music in the '80s sense of the word, absolutely nothing retro about it. If these artists have been inspired by the mythical days of the international cassette underground (you know, back when Merzbow was barely more than a circulating rumor), they take the D.I.Y. approach to new extremes, combining laptop art with the most simple artistic gestures possible. The set begins with a noise assault courtesy of Jan Van Den Dobbelsteen - a harsh entry to an album that also offers its share of quieter passages. The English group Earth Hum contributes one of the highlights, a 'Post Industrial Dream' combining a recitation and a diesel engine, among other sounds. Other stand-outs include some amplified objects by Nicolas Malevitsis (at least that's what it sounds like); a hilarious piece by Crank Sturgeon where the artist attempts to play back a recording by Crank Sturgeon but keeps messing up, recording himself in the process; a delicate soundscape by Ilios, and a surprising vocal piece by Id M Theft Able that sounds like Jaap Blonk recorded performing on a street corner and remixed. And the last two tracks by Andreas Meland and Jan-M. Iversen propose gentle yet unusual soundscapes. Truly admirable and highly recommended". - Francois Couture, All Music Guide. This volume features: Jan van den Dobbelsteen, Earth Hum, Claypipe, Nicolas Malevitsis, Midwich, Lukasz Ciszak, HOH, Verde, Crank Sturgeon, Odd Job, Ilios, A.M., Id M Theft able, Andreas Meland, Jan-M. Iversen.

5/29/2015 V/A Don't Think I've Forgotten: Cambodia's Lost Rock and Roll CD $13.99 Dust-To-Digital "On April 17, 1975, Phnom Penh fell to the Khmer Rouge and Cambodian rock and roll was no more. Its star musicians were targeted and killed, record collections were destroyed, clubs were closed, and Western-style music-making, dancing, and clothes were outlawed. The deaths of approximately two million Cambodians and the horrors of the Killing Fields have been well-documented; add to this John Pirozzi's fascinating tale of Cambodia's vibrant pop music scene, beginning in the 1950s and '60s, influenced by France's Johnny Hallyday and Britain's Cliff Richard and the Shadows. The filmmaker has assembled rare archival footage, punctuating it with telling interviews with the few surviving musicians. Cambodian culture has long been synonymous with a love for the arts. Pirozzi's 2014 film Don't Think I've Forgotten pays homage to the country's rock legends who paid for their creativity with their lives. Through the eyes, words, and songs of its popular music stars of the '50s, '60s, and '70s, Don't Think I've Forgotten: Cambodia's Lost Rock and Roll examines and unravels Cambodia's recent tragic past. This soundtrack to Pirozzi's important film, compiled by the director, is very cinematic in nature. The sequencing and newly-remastered audio transport the listener through the rock and roll history of Cambodia in a similar fashion as Pirozzi's documentary film. It is both entertaining and essential to hear so many tracks that are available outside of Cambodia for the very first time. Includes tracks by The Royal University of Fine Arts, Sinn Sisamouth, Chhoun Malay, Huoy Meas, Baksey Cham Krong, Ros Serey Sothea, Pen Ran, Sieng Vannthy, Va Sovy, Drakkar, Pou Vannary, Yol Aularong, and Cheam Chansovannary.
9/29/2005 V/A Down In A Mirror - A Second Tribute To Jandek CD $12.99 Summersteps "Summersteps Records is honored to be offering this second edition of songs written, or directly inspired by, the singular singer songwriter and enigma known as Jandek. Both albums have been ably instigated, produced and sequenced by Summersteps. Following their first such enterprise; Naked in the Afternoon (SUM 0010) from 2000, which featured contributions from the likes of: Low, Bright Eyes, Amy Denio, Retsin, and Gary Young, amongst many others. For this new collection there are sterling contributions from a wide range of 22 fine contemporary artists, including: Jeff Tweedy of Wilco, The Mountain Goats, Brother JT, Kawabata Makoto of Acid Mothers Temple, Rivulets, Dirty Projectors, Six Organs of Admittance, Eric Gaffney, Okkervil River, Pothole Skinny, Lewis & Clarke and many others. The last couple of years have seen the star of the reclusively mysterious Jandek rise in a significant way. The release of the 2003 documentary film Jandek on Corwood was an accurate evocation of one of independent music's most individualistic, challenging, and productive artists. Jandek did his first public performance unannounced with no advance publicity or introduction at the Instal.04 Festival in Glasgow in 2004 as 'a representative from Corwood Industries'. 2005 sees the release of the sublime second Jandek tribute album, as Jandek himself continues to release new material; nearing forty albums at this writing. From the first notes of Jeff Tweedy's ethereally beautiful opening rendition of 'Crack a Smile', it is obvious that Down in a Mirror is going to be something very special. The overwhelming majority of the contributors are remarkably faithful to the original songs; while expanding upon, and infusing them all with their own distinctive personalities and sensibilities."

11/1/2014 V/A Ecstatic Music of the Jemaa El Fna CD $16.99 Sublime Frequencies "For centuries, the Jemaa El Fna (Rendezvous of the Dead) has remained the stage for one of the most spectacular social forums on the planet. By day, this central square in the city of Marrakesh, one of Morocco's great imperial cities, fosters a kaleidoscope of entertainment for its local inhabitants; storytellers, acrobats, magicians and snake charmers all create intriguing displays of bewitching spectacle. As the sun sets, the evening grows frantic with the pulse of the crowd; it is then that the night musicians set up. Free from the restrictions and expectations of light entertainment for a tourist crowd, these musicians manifest ecstatic performances that animate the audience and players alike. The groups represented on this album; Troupe Majidi, Amal Saha, and Mustapha Mahjoub, are working and carrying the torch of their musical heroes nightly in the square. These songs come from the repertoire of Morocco's greatest musical exports: Nass El Ghiwane, Lemchaheb, Jil Jilala, Larssad, and many others from the Chaabi (Moroccan popular music) canon and are given a raw, emotional and fiery interpretation. Instruments are powered by car batteries and blown out through megaphone speakers. These recordings represent a rare opportunity to hear this music at such close proximity, taking in all the power and passion of the performances. The raw fidelity captures an unflinching immersion of what is simply some of the greatest street music on earth. Recorded by Hisham Mayet in 2005, a few of these performances were featured in his film Musical Brotherhoods from the Trans-Saharan Highway. This collection also contains tracks not present in the film for a more potent snapshot of the ecstatic Jemaa El Fna. Debut CD digipak edition of this sold-out LP with booklet & photos of the musicians and liner notes by Hisham Mayet."

8/21/2002 V/A Electrically Induced Vibrations LP $18.99 Anomalous "This is a collection of music created with electronic means by artists residing in Luxembourg, United Kingdom, United States, New Zealand and The Netherlands. Most of these people have been making music for 20 years or more, and have diverse history. Their music as collected here is varied, but arranged into a cohesive flow. By all means experimental to the general population, the first side consists of what might be consider the more musical contributions, while the second explores more abstract and ambient territory.
Edward Ka-Spel is best known as the vocalist for The Legendary Pink Dots, which he helped found in 1980. however he is also an integral member of The Tear Garden and Mimir and has an extensive solo discography. as a singer and songwriter, he is one of the only in that field who can still take me into his world with his painfully real and cleverly articulated words. as a sound maker, he has not only created a great backing for his lyrics, but has also made many wonderful electronic soundscapes which are outstanding in the field of experimental music.
Cyclobe is Stephen Thrower and Simon Norris, both known as members of Coil at different times in that group's history. And while the connection can be heard, their music stands on its own quite well, as their two albums, "Luminous Darkness" and "The Visitors", prove.
Colin Potter is well known for his engineering work as his I.C. Studio, where he has worked with Nurse With Wound, Current 93, Ora, Organum, Jonathan Coleclough, Monos, and many many others. In many of these cases, his position was often elevated to collaborator, and his contribution essential. As his solo releases have been infrequent in recent years, and many were only on cassette, this side of his activity has been less appreciated, which is unfortunate. Among those things is the CD "And Then" on his own I.C.R. label, while the cassette "See" is about to re-released on CD by Infraction.
Steve Thomsen was a member of L.A. band Monitor, who some may remember because of their associations with Boyd Rice and L.A.F.M.S., and later the ensemble Solid Eye (with Rick Potts and Joseph Hammer). Throughout his history, he has been recording solo works at home, and making tapes just for friends. It's only recently that some of those works have been more heard, due to a pair of CDs on Transparency and a string of CDRs which Steve resigned to put out himself. An avid fan of Forteana, his music often comes across as what would make a great soundtrack for sci-fi movie from a lost era.
Omit is another artist who has released much music on cassette, but recent years have seen CDs on Corpus Hermeticum, including a collaboration with A Handful of Dust under the name Dust/Omit, and an LP in collaboration with K-Group on Fusetron, as well as several limited 7"s and CDRs. His music is enveloping, reverberant and spacious - the perfect soundtrack for both exploring the inner reaches of your mind as well as the open expanses of the world around (for example ominous mountain passes).
Arkkon is the solo project of David Knight whose discography would stretch back to 1980 and include releases with The Fast Set, Five or Six, Danielle Dax, Shockheaded Peters, and Lydia Lunch. It is only in the last years that he has started to publish solo recordings though including CDs on Tonus Kozmetica and Soleilmoon Recordings, as well as a pair of very limited, self-released CDRs. Unlike much of the work in the rest of his discography, Arkkon is abstract electronics, often calling upon his vintage analog synthesizers.
The Silverman is another founding member of The Legendary Pink Dots, and as such he appears on all of their releases (which number quite a large number by now). He is very involved in writing music for the band, and in the last decade has released four very beautiful solo albums. The Silverman also appears on all the recordings by Mimir.
Mistress of Strands is one of the many bands from the Ventricle stable; a label dedicated to putting more cosmic and experimental music with female vocals into the world. In addition to this project, Dusty Lee has appeared on recordings from Mauve Sideshow, Torn Curtain and Angel Provocateur.
Fibrillation is an artist who has been working in private for some years now, and this is the first track of his to be publicly released. His work is careful constructed, and has a great attention to detail. This track was created to invoke the childhood memories of walking through dark, mysterious woods. A very strong piece for a first release."

6/19/2002 V/A ElsieandJackandAube : Rewriting The Book double CD $15.99 elsieandjack "Elsie and Jack are proud to present, REWRITING THE BOOK a double cd monster that contains many genre defining moments within its 154 minute, 28 track lifespan. 2 years in the making, it encompasses an eclectic array of artists from around the world, all contributing recordings exclusively made for this release. For the previous elsie and jack release, PAGES FROM THE BOOK, akifumi nakajima (aube) created 61 sounds, ranging from 10 second loops to 4 minute drones, using a copy of the King James bible. These source sounds, in conjunction with the original concept, were open to so many different interpretations that they were then sent to a number of artists to create their own music. Some of the artists used nothing but the source sounds; some in a very minimal way, some in a more complex manner. Others used the sounds as a starting point to build their own music around, so that the samples become an integral part of their own particular vision. A few ­ Drekka, Hood and Volcano the Bear - introduce a more obvious if unconventional song structure to the proceedings. The differing approaches create an eclectic sound, bound cohesively into a whole by the continuing theme of the pages from the book. This release marks the first time that aube has been remixed. However, the story is not yet complete ... the next stage in this epic sees Akifumi versus everyone versus Aube."
3/20/2010 V/A Err on the Good Side LP $20.99 Three:Four Records "Err on the Good Side is the first volume of a compilation series devoted to musicians, programmers, reviewers, disc sellers or whoever involved in music activities that we love. We offer them the opportunity to share their passion for it by curating a record. For this first volume we have asked ali_fib, the most interesting and adventurous gig promoter in Paris, to handle it. The result, Err on the Good Side, reflects their own musical tastes and friendships. Except Chambre 1, Ilitch's introductory track (which was released in 2005 as part of Thierry Müller's limited-edition picture disc, Rainy House) and Amen Dunes' contribution, Diane (here offered in its extended version; an alternative take will be released this year by Locust Music), this record is made of previously unreleased material and has been compiled using a very simple idea of symmetry: most of the tracks here have been assembled as pairs based on musical affinities. Features rare & exclusive tracks from Sir Richard Bishop, Amen Dunes, Steve Gunn, Ben Nash, Duane Pitre, Hellvete, Mike Wexler, and Liberez." One time edition of 504 copies.

1/7/2015 V/A Everywhere Chainsaw Sound LP $27.99 Feed The Mind "This reissue of Everywhere Chainsaw Sound, the legendary 1960s US garage psych compilation, is available on 180-gram vinyl in a strictly limited, hand-numbered edition of 500 copies. Featuring tracks from many legendary 45s, it is presented with remastered sound and includes the original insert and a deluxe, full-color, double-sided info sheet with detailed notes and rarely-seen pictures, making it an essential addition to any psych connoisseur's record collection. "In a field full of weeds the earliest garage psych/punk compilations still possess a charm that endears them to collectors. Back in the early 1980s a number of now extremely rare compilations were briefly available via mail order. They almost immediately disappeared onto the shelves of a small but hardcore group of US '60s rock fans. Everywhere Chainsaw Sound was one such compilation that originated in France and was produced in a microscopic numbered edition of only 100 copies. Housed in a plain white card sleeve with handmade artwork, it remains, even to this day, almost unknown by the majority of '60s US garage psych collectors. Inspired by Elektra's Nuggets LP, grey area compilations such as Pebbles, Boulders, and Acid Dreams created a demand for underground compilations that grew into the US garage rock reissue market that has since produced many thousands of records. An unceasing demand for music from probably the most exciting period of rock and roll has turned into a minor industry. Thankfully Everywhere Chainsaw Sound is once again available as a limited edition high quality vinyl reissue with improved sleeve notes and sound. You may have some of these recordings on other compilations but somehow the mystery excitement and sense of discovery that fuelled the first era of the garage rock revival is captured on this iconic compilation." --Richard Allen, founder of The Freak Emporium, now writes for Shindig! Everywhere Chainsaw Sound includes tracks by Lincoln St. Exit, The Spiders, The K-Otics, The Scepters, The Reverbs, Strangers, Ken & the Fourth Dimension, The Guilloteens, Fe-Fi-Four Plus 2, Unchained Mynds, Kan Dells, The Spokesmen, The Original Dukes, Heros, The Monacles, The Music Explosion, and Electric Prunes."

4/16/2007 V/A Getting Rid of the Glue LP $10.99 Pendu Sound "Getting Rid of the Glue is a tribute to the continuing positive influence of John Cage on free /improv /creative /& noise music. It is a compilation of New York/Chicago musicians representing a wide-ranging diversity of experimental music that is both new and relevant to a chaotic and unstable 21st century. GETTING RID OF THE GLUE is a phrase first used by Henry Cowell before introducing the music of Christian Wolff, Earl Brown, Morton Feldman, and John Cage at a New School concert in 1950’s. John Cage in his influential lecture entitled 'History of Experimental Music in the United States' recounts the remarks of Henry Cowell. 'That here were ... composers getting rid of glue. That is: Where people had felt the necessity to stick sounds together to make a continuity, we ... felt the opposite necessity to get rid of the glue so that sounds would be themselves.' - John Cage. Limited to 300 LPs so they won't last long. Includes a 11x17 xerox poster with art contributed by each of the bands." Featured are: Dirty Churches, Spin-17, K.P., BIG A little a, Fessenden, Eager Meek, Mialessot with Daniel Carter & Old Ghost, Maria Chavez, Talibam!, and Excepter

Now, in 2008, Gothenburg's electronic and experimental scene is again soaring with talent. It's a scene of pioneers creating exploratory, unique music - completely new, but still connected to the spirit from almost 25 years ago. It is another unique era, and it is time to document it.

4/5/2008 V/A Imaginational Anthem Volume Three CD $12.99 Tompkins Square "I struggle to recall any recent comps that glide together as seamlessly as these Tompkins Square projects, and Volume Three is no exception. Contemplative, intricate, a simple but ornate school of folk that hangs effortlessly between the ancient and the avant-garde -- I could listen to this stuff all day." --John Mulvey, Uncut. "NYC's Tompkins Square label releases Imaginational Anthem Volume Three, the third in a series of compilations devoted to acoustic guitar mavericks past and present. As with Volumes 1 & 2, the 3rd volume features extraordinary young talents such as Cian Nugent (Ireland), Ben Reynolds (UK), and Shawn David McMillen (Austin, TX) alongside unsung heroes from decades past, such as banjo master George Stavis, who recorded an album for Vanguard in the '60s; Richard Crandell, whose rare private press works will hopefully now come to light; and Mark Fosson, whose lost 1977 Takoma album was recently issued." Also included: Steffen Basho-Junghans, Greg Davis, Nathan Salsburg, Matt Baldwin and R. Keenan Lawler.
4/5/2008 V/A Imaginational Anthem Volume Two CD $12.99 Tompkins Square "Released in October 2005, Imaginational Anthem Volume One featured two generations of important acoustic guitarists, from John Fahey and Sandy Bull to Jack Rose and Kaki King. Volume Two expands and builds on this theme with 70+ more minutes of guitar magic - all previously unreleased on CD in the US. 23-year old UK 12-string upstart James Blackshaw opens the record, while the late master Robbie Basho, a clear influence on Blackshaw's style, closes it. Basho's track is the only live recording by this groundbreaking guitarist ever released. Riches abound on Imaginational Anthem Vol Two, with new recordings by former Takoma roster alumni Peter Lang (who made an album with John Fahey and Leo Kottke), Billy Faier (an original Greenwich Village folkie whose late '50s Riverside records inspired a fellow crack banjo player, Steve Martin) and an archival home recording by Fred Gerlach (a favorite of Jimmy Page). The new breed is well-represented by fascinating figures of today - Smith, Carter, Sparhawk, Kraus, Rose and Blackshaw. Legendary singer/songwriter Michael Chapman, whose first albums for the Harvest label in the '60s are now seeing the light again, contributes as well." 2006 release.

V/A International League of Telepathic Explorers CD $14.99 Free City Media “Free City is proud to announce the release of our first compilation CD. This collection features new, rare and previously unreleased tracks by a variety of today's independent psychedelic rock artists. From undisputed masters of the form such as The Bevis Frond and Motorpsycho to talented upstarts including Aquarium Poppers and The Sand Pebbles, The International League of Telepathic Explorers displays the creative spirit passed down from the original psychedelic era. This compilation is a benefit for Free City's online magazine and label. We were very pleased that the bands that helped our magazine gain a wider audience were kind enough to contribute tracks to the album. They are some of our own favorite artists working today. A number of countries are represented: Australia (The Sand Pebbles), England (The Bevis Frond, Bitter Little Cider Apples, Lucky Bishops and Adrian Shaw), Germany (Mandra Gora Lightshow Society), Norway (Aquarium Poppers, Dipsomaniacs and Motorpsycho) and the U.S. (thebrotheregg, Dunlavy, The Minders and Photon Band). From our own label's roster, we have solo musician/producer Nick Bensen, the mysterious Polar Arc (who we only know from haunting CD-Rs postmarked from remote locations in Alaska) and 33 Tiger Infinity (surely a force to be reckoned with). The artists on this compilation record for many of the finest labels out there: Apartment, Camera Obscura, Darla, Fleece, Pink Hedgehog, Rubric, SpinART, Stickman, Swamp Room, 35g and (last but certainly not least) Woronzow.”

V/A Intersect 3 CD $12.99 Pale-Disc "4.7.01 Ceremony Hall, Austin, TX didn't actually play in any capacity here but want to make note of this evening's passage. ceremony hall is a small wooden chapel on the campus of the sri atmananda complex, with beautiful sound and seemingly set off from the world despite its proximity to the accident-prone intersection of 41st and red river. many incredible shows have taken place here (tonight, 4.11, evan parker & susie ibarra). the intersect festival was started a few years ago by a coalition of local artists & musicians, and though involvement has changed, the usual suspects were in evidence tonight-- jgrzinich, rick reed, brekekekexkoaxkoax (aka josh ronsen), jeff filla, and thom grzinich. ('katie and rachel', though on the flyer, are mysteriously absent). thom grizinich (brother of j) begins the evening with strummed piano and tapes, minutely detailed repetitive sound mass expanding out through the darkness (illuminated by passing headlights). thom's first public performance, and impressive (his kalimba solo spontaneously inserted during technical difficulties in josh's performance was similarly intriguing). next was brekekekexkoaxkoax-- small, spacious minature guitar/bow sounds, broken by a piano solo w/ slideshow accompaniment (photographs of stark, dark limbed trees by Carmen Resendez). i particularly enjoyed the guitar, played with delicacy and restraint--and the film accompaniment (despite glitches) understated, shifting, layered, hallucinatory. jeff filla came next with a rare solo performance on his motors, gadgets, and miscellaneous electronics (fuzzy as to what was actually played, all performers were mostly hidden). ratcheting pops and howls, looped into a giant creaking tapestry, fascinating & uncomfortable. rick reed has been performing improvised guitar around town for years with various ensembles. tonight was the debut of his electronic instruments, which he recently began working with while in search of a satisfying approach to solo performance. several oscillators and radio receivers delivered sound that was huge & overpowering, supported by rick's amazing hand painted films, abstract shapes in scratched stop-motion, seemingly racing side to side overhead. rick's further exploits in this area are hugely anticipated... final performer was jgrizinich-- his first appearance since a lengthy jaunt in europe & environs. main instrument was a piano wire stretched from wall to wall, played with what seemed to be a homemade ebow (blueprints, anyone?)- nice cap on the evening, harmonically complex, fundamentally simple, luminous swirling underwater films. nice to have john back. in sum-- great night, straightforward presentation w/out pretention. efforts by all were excellent & look forward to everyone's future activities...” – Review of event by Tom Carter. CD features all 5 artists. 5 tracks – 52 minutes.

V/A Intersect 4: August 25, 2001 Ceremony Hall Austin, Texas CD $12.99 Pale-Disc Excellent disc highlighted by the Charalambides recording! “The focus of INTERSECT 4 was on experimental music, improvisation, video and various combinations thereof. A special quadrasonic PA system will was used for the evenings performances. Artist bios: Charalambides formed in Houston in 1991 (and relocated to Austin in 1997), and have evolved through various configurations based on the duo of Tom & Christina Carter. Starting with 1993's Union LP, they have released seven LPs and CDs on Philadelphia's Siltbreeze records and on the duo's own Wholly Other label, along with numerous other compilation appearances and CD-R releases. Since their inception, Charalambides' primary focus has been their recordings, and until recently they have played live infrequently, giving up live performance entirely for an eighteen month period from 1996 to 1998. Over the last two years, however, the duo has gradually moved toward music of a more public nature, with recordings assuming a new role as documentation of their continuously evolving sound. Currently the duo performs (frequently extended) guitar, voice, and organ compositions and improvisations that utilize volume, space, and silence as well as other elements of experimental improvised music, folk, and psychedelic guitar rock. The group is currently preparing releases on LP, 10 inch EP, and CD for Timelag Records, Beta Lactam Ring, and Eclipse Records.
frequency curtain - a trio of performers (Grzinich, Reed, Ronsen) using both analogue and digital sine wave generators, processing and interventions from the radiophonic spectrum. An original piece of collaborative video work will accompany the performance.
jgrzinich - John Grzinich has been using the artistic name 'jgrzinch' since 1995 when he first started building his own instruments and experimenting with non-traditional recording and processing techniques for sound.
Rick Reed has been in the Austin music underground since the early eighty's when he was producing video collages with original electronic soundtracks for what was then ACTV. As of late he has been the driving force of local experimental improv group' The Abrasion Ensemble'. In 1998 he had the honor of having an Lp of his work released on Thurston Moore's label Ecstatic Peace called ‘Experimental And Improvised Music From Austin, Texas’. Reed has also had the honor of having a CD from english noise makers AMM named after him that was recorded in Houston in 1996. Two current works are soon to be issued by Beta Lactam Ring records, one an Abrasion Ensemble reissue and another a solo release from 1985 based on the dark paintings of the late painter Mark Rothko. The Rick Reed sound is one he has described as maximum sound from minimal means".
Josh Ronsen has been producing juxtapositions of sound, light and movement since 1995 under the guise of Brekekekexkoaxkoax. Focusing on no one style or approach, brekekekexkoaxkoax performances have ranged from presenting Fluxus works to instrumental free-improvisation, to DJ-ing, to avant-classical composition, to action performances.Philip Gayle: born in 1969, Houston, Texas. plays guitar, stringed instruments, and percussion. has been playing since 1980 in several rock, folk, blues, country, funk, and free improvised bands in Vermont, Utah, New Hampshire, Japan, Texas, Colorado, and elsewhere. Now plays acoustic free-improvised music with waterphone, metallic objects, guitars, mandolin, ukulele, cello, viola, violin, piano, and anything else acoustic. Performs over 40 times a year all over....
Cltr Alt Dlt, aka Kurt Korthals is actively engaged is the Austin electronic music scene performing under the alias, The Buddy System. He is a regular at the monthly AMODA events and moderates the Oscillate mailing list. When not composing or programming he performs only the those duties most needed to support the basic functions of life. He can also be heard weekly on his radio show: ‘sincerely, joe p. bear’ - Wednesday nights from 1-3am on KVRX. For INTERSECT 4 he plans to experiment with multi-channel anti-tonal minimalism.”
7/16/2006 V/A It's Over, We Don't Care CD $16.99 Spanish Magic "This new compilation CD from the excellent Australian imprint, Spanish Magic, contains a great combination of old favorites and new faces. These 12 tracks are put together in a way that makes this feel less like an assembly of random tracks, and more like a complete album. This is definitely some of the best music Australia has to offer. Kicking things off is the always great and vastly underrated, Hi God People. This group has been around since the '90s, spewing forth their pop-infused sonic goodness. "Egil Rotunda Mural," their contribution here, is the perfect opener. It's upbeat drums and extremely catchy keyboards & synthesizers set the mood for the rest of the compilation. You'll be tapping your foot in no time, ready for the sun to rise again. Beautiful music but an absolutely great, great band. Following this is the digital glitchery of Pimmon with "Sea Boy, Kol Kol." It's like hearing the ocean if it were electrified. The beauty here is in the subtleties. The somewhat post rock-ish aspects of II's "There Were Lakes" lasts just long enough to leave a good impression. Not the best track on the compilation, but nice enough. Next comes one of my absolute favorites, Brothers of the Occult Sisterhood. The brother-sister duo of Michael & Kristina Donnelly set the world ablaze last year and haven't let up since. This stellar sacrificial lamb, "Circle of Eyes," is an organic spell cast to haunt the corners of your dreams. Bowed guitars and a heavy dose of reverb give you a full-on black forest blast. Over it's six minutes, this piece will melt all your skin away. Easily one of the compilations finest offerings. Keith Mason's '70s psych infusion, "VTR," pierces your eardrums next. As the longest track on this compilation, it unfolds slowly. Raucous electric guitars explode on contact while Mason's ritualistic vocals are trapped underneath the massive, distorted wash. It's a great piece that feels like it was rescued from another time entirely. The only track that can compete with this one for true sonic decadence is "Burning Eastor" by Hiss. Death noise at its finest, this track will kill you. It's fucking great. Anthony Guerra & Peter Biamey also get into the action with the loud and abrasive "#3." These feedback walls are more delicate, though, as if one tiny crack could bring the whole thing down. Guerra & Biamey utilize very subtle shifts to their advantage here, keeping this track moving along at a steady, but slow speed. Castings, who are the guys behind the Spanish Magic imprint, give us a short dose of their disjointed goodness. Electric guitars and minimal percussion are dragged through the mud by rusty chains, making sure that every inch is covered in dust. At just over 2 1/2 minutes, you get a quick taste of what this great band has to offer. There's also a bevy of quieter tracks that really push this compilation over the top. The Garbage & The Flowers give us "Elisabeth," a lovely duet that is taken from a Herman Hesse poem. The male/female vocals are lovely, and once the whimsical violin comes in, I will submit. This is a great piece. Not to be outdone, Rand and Holland's "Shanghai Lady?" closes the album in impressive fashion. Brett Thompson's quiet vocals lull you to sleep. The track is short, but sweet and the lyrics are great. Excellent song. "It's Over, We Don't Care" is a very good compilation with a great mix of artists and styles. For those wanting to hear more of the burgeoning Australian underground, this is certainly a great place to start.- Brad Rose, Foxy Digitalis

7/16/2004 V/A Land of Tuh CDR $15.99 Audiobot "Far beyond terrestrial territory, behind the spacious purple clouds and far beyond normal notions, there lies the intriguing Land Of Tuh. Quasi as mysterious and intractable as the Bermuda triangle, it’s a brooding wasteland of tin armed soldiers, yodeling cadavers and giant size albatross eggs. At night primitive creatures gather around the fuzz rattling out of muddy carstereo equipment, green puss emerging from all parts of their body. Someone goes home with a purulent spermcanal tonight. Hold your breath. By now the Tuhs are among the most tolerant groups of people in the world and cordially welcome foreign visitors. Every band rips through a head-drenching set of power violence outsideness, attacking the ear with a vulgar wall of death, spawned by trash and hardcore’s restless energy. The kind of two fingers in the air style that wants to irritate, shock and leave the listener chewing sacred hairballs. Stranded in a land of total death, furry slippers and a cut-throat circle of cannibals on a rampage. Sure to leave discopunk Mohawks burning in a hurricane of Marshall amped up anger. This very first Audiobot compilation gives an unhealthy insight in the smelly puddle of North American retarded freenoise disciples, breaking down the borders between metal, scrapnoise and overall Armageddon… The future is here and it’s definitely not orange! Tracks by Wolf Eyes, Mephitic Ooze, Maximum Cloud, Nautical Almanac, Van Meter Viper, Discs Of Tronn, and Rubber-0 Cement. Limited edition of only 165 copies, don’t sleep on it!

7/16/2009 V/A Learning for Insipid Zeal = Pool Water, People Pollution, Imaginary Unit In Electronics one-sided LP $12.99 American Tapes "Whoa! Hold on now! Here's the big one! All recorded in a one week in late April, here's the line up: Track One ) Pool Water: Super new heavy unit with Connelly, Zone One and Mega Mike Collino. Violin, kitchen percussion, slow tapes - every ingredient to make your pulse quicken/slow-en!!! The track sounds more akin to a Cook Labs recording of a train journey thru a snow covered mountain at midnight rather than three mug blokes in ultra concentrated jam mode.... Will make your skin stand at attention, soldier!! Recorded in Inzane-Dimension sound with the IZTF in full effect mode. Mad style: File Under: Misshapen Jam Growths. Track Two ) People Pollution: What the? Ultra distorted retardo basement rock trio with Juice & Raddix (AKA Raven Strain Matt and Fag Health AKA Sick Llama Heath) on guitar and bass and Inzane on plodding go nowhere drumming. Was meant to be a Justice-style garage unit turned Frankenstein- style into a twisted distorted Mega-mess! Recorded under the influence of afternoon sun, left over Milwaukee Beasts from the Aries Assault party, and the shadows of the dank interiors of the Frying Pan. WARNING! = worst guitar/bass tone on earth!! Would make Joe Young, Vorkriegphase, and Wretched sell they kitty littered amp speakers for opening a Baskin and Robin's Franchise. Just a stinking rocking mess of a track!! More to come by this mutant unit! Name taken from a strange puzzle the puzzler master Tovah found in a rotten Lansing thrift store. Track Three ) Imaginary Unit in Electronics: Im sure ya'll are like "Why not just call the jam J?" Well, Im not quite sold on the concept of being that you cant take the square root of a negative, but you CAN call it a J and then next thing you know it has a value of 1 or-1. Huh? When rad Instructor Max got asked the question by a stunned Electrical Math class, he just looked down, counted his voltage, current, and resistance markers and said, "Well, that's a discussion for Carl Jung." Shit, lost me too. Like the button my crazed mom had (no ya turkey, not the OVERSEXED one) , "Ninety Percent of Life is Just Showing Up." True. Soundtrack for confusion, included. So what the hell else for this heavy pack? How about a stupid-colorful overload hand painted collab jackets with artist Raymond Salvatore Harmon, painted in Automatic Writing Style. Why? Cause Tyfuss once told me "Zines and Collaborations keep the underground scene together and alive" You got it!!! Killer flow and strange new sounds will leave your day inzanity haunted with this new comp platter!!! Go nutzo young player. Edition of 100, numbered, hand done, THE WORKS."

David Murray is the curator of Haji Maji (www.HajiMaji.com), a blog dedicated to the exploration of 78 RPM Asian music. He previously produced two LPs for Dust-to-Digital: Luk Thung: Classic & Obscure 78s from the Thai Countryside (DTD 029CD) and Kassidat: Raw 45s from Morocco (DTD 032CD/PT 2004LP). Longing for the Past: The 78 RPM Era in Southeast Asia continues the mission of Dust-to-Digital to explore the early days of recorded sound from around the world. Much like Opika Pende: Africa at 78 RPM (DTD 022CD) broke new ground in research while reissuing dozens of tracks for the very first time, Longing for the Past examines an era of music from a geographical region that has remained hidden until now."

V/A Love Peace & Poetry: Asian Psychedelic Music CD $15.99 QDK One of the better psychedelic comps I have heard in a very long time! "Love Peace & Poetry Volume Three is undeniable evidence of the global impact of the music of the 1960s. Containing bands from Thailand, Cambodia, Singapore, Malaysia, Korea, Japan, Hong Kong, India, and Turkey. Features: Teddy Robin & the Playboys, Erkin Koray, San Ul Lim, Justin Heathcliff, Baris Manco, Cambodian Rocks, The Mops, Yuya Uchida & the Flowers, 3 Hr El, The Fentones, Mogollar, Confusions, The Quest, Jung Hyun and the Men."
6/2/2004 V/A Love, Peace & Poetry: Mexican Psychedelic Music LP $16.99 QDK "The most recent volume of the Love, Peace & Poetry series, Mexican Psych Music, takes as its focus what was one aspect of our second collection in this series, Latin American Psychedelic Music. While there are some parallels between the evolution of rock and roll in the US and Mexico, the stories are out of synch with each other in interesting ways. In the US, the first wave of rock and roll presented a challenge to longstanding racial divisions and repressed sexuality that was fought off (by 1960 Elvis was in the Army, Jerry Lee Lewis in exile, Chuck Berry in prison and Little Richard turned to Jesus) and replaced by the mostly bland and neutered pop of singers like Fabian, Dion, Paul Anka, Frankie Avalon and Pat Boone (if you've ever wonder what music might sound like in Hell listen to Pat Boone's covers of Little Richard; possibly the most frightening music ever made). Rock and roll became dangerous in Mexico when it began to be mixed with a challenge to the political status quo. Tracks from rare LPs by The Flying Karpets, Grupo Ciruela, Los Ovnis, La Onda De Survival, and Nahuatl help complete our tour through the various climates of 1960s-1970s Mexican psychedelia, and readily demonstrate the origins of a musical culture that continues on into contemporary times in the many bands that make up the active Mexican music scene here in the new century." Housed in full color gatefold sleeve. Nice!
1/20/2015 V/A LSD CD $17.99 Aurora "Originally issued by Capitol Records in July 1966 and subtitled a documentary report on the current psychedelic drug controversy!, this notorious album offers both a background report into the new phenomenon of lysergic acid diethylamide and a recording of an actual trip. Fuelling anti-psychedelic prejudice beneath a veneer of objectivity, it stands as an important early artifact in the history of the psychedelic movement, and features contributions from Timothy Leary, Allan Ginsberg, Aldous Huxley's widow Laura, early acid rockers Fire and Ice, Ltd., and Neal Cassady and a pre-Grateful Dead group called the Warlocks. Interviews and recording by Lawrence Schiller. Medical consulting by Sidney Cohen, M.D. This is the first CD reissue of this artifact. Includes detailed liner notes and images. Digitally remastered."
7/30/2010 V/A Lune Atroce / Soleil Amer 7" $7.99 Kraak "One year after the 'Meet the Philly elite' 7" we finally release a fresh 4-way split. This time Köhn and Alien Radio are trancing deep into the history of synthesizer classics while Peaking Lights and Ducktails have a take on their own pop music. KÖHN is Jürgen De Blonde. He has been called 'the godfather of Belgian electronica'. After the double-cd 'Koen' from 2002, he started to focus on music for dance and theatre. Last year he made his comeback on wax with 'We need more space in the cosmos', an lp full of epic space age compositions. 'U C I M' builds on the same vibes: trancy and neo-cosmic. Ulf Schütte plays in Datashock and Phantom Horse, but his musical climaxes are definitely at home when he fools around with his modular synths. ALIEN RADIO's music follows the tradition of Conny Planck, Delia Derbyshire, Dick Raaijmakers and Ursula Bogner. 'Gedanke und Ahnung' is bleepsynthronica sounding like a sketch of a derailed sonic research project. PEAKING LIGHTS are the duo of Indra Dunis (ex-Numbers) and Aaron Coynes. 'Creatures of day creatures at night' is pure summer pop. The usual synths and drumloops made place for fuzzy calypso riffing. Dunis' vocal romanticism sounds sweet as a Brian Wilson song. Sc-fi soft pop! Real Estate, Alex Bleeker & the Freaks, Predator Vision, ParasailsŠ All bands Matt Mondanile is involved in. In the last three years his music went around the world rather quickly, mainly under his DUCKTAILS moniker. His neo-tropic pop music is often linked to a movement that also houses the likes of James Feraro, Dolphins into the Future and a great deal of the Not Not Fun related bands. 'Sprinter' is a repetitive melancholic pop song, and about the most 'indie' track we heard from Ducktails so farŠ"
12/24/2005 V/A Maan Matoset CD $15.99 Pohjoisten Kukkaisten "Truly one of the most lovely looking & sounding comps in the history of compilations, Maan Matoset is the sound of Fins tinkering, shuffling, strumming,,, some of it in the form of gentle songs & some in the form of abstract squeaking & droning electronics or folk percussion. it all flows like an album or a river of
broken church bells. tomutonttu, kiila, pekko kappi & kuupuu & keijo & taikuri tali & lau nau etc. etc?.. they are all here & more..." - Glenn Donaldson. Also features Hertta Lussu Ässä , Kemialliset Ystävät, Lauhkeat Lampaat, Avarus, and Päivänsäde. Highly recommended!
8/7/2002 V/A Mandragora Sampler CD $7.99 Mandragora Records "The Mandragora Sampler is not what you'd expect. Rather than being a simple compilation of artists from the label, Amlee sampled a selection of tracks from the Mandragora roster into a freaky mix of his own. This actually has some of the calmest music on any of these discs, though no less strange. Dark astral space drones, tones, clatter, noise, and voices create a steadily evolving drama that's loaded with fun freaky sounds and often has a thematic feel. I hear industrial, space ambient, out of control acid freakouts, oddball Residents styled voices, and big gloms of all these things. There's some seriously spaced out music on here and one of the best parts is near the end when we hear what sounds like an army of flying saucers racing against multiple layers of ambient waves and drones. Lots of interesting stuff here and Amlee does a good job of holding my attention throughout. The action is continually shifting but Amlee makes the transitions seamless. There are 5 tracks but checking the Mandragora web site it looks like each includes several bits of tracks from various artists from the label. Indeed there's no breaking point even between tracks so I enjoyed this disc as a continual work rather than giving me direction toward any individual artist on the label. I think the message is to just go for it and start exploring some of the tasty oddities Mandragora has to offer." - Jerry Kranitz, Aural Innovations "A psychotropic journey through the world of Mandragora. Rather than putting together a straight compilation to showcase the unique sounds of our artists, Paradise Camp 23 samples and reworks the Mandragora catalog into an illbient hypermix. Carved into 5 tracks for your listening pleasure."

3/11/2012 V/A Menagerie #3 LP + zine $23.99 Blackest Rainbow / Tor Press "Jake Blanchard's third volume of Menagerie finally shows up just over a year after #2... The concept this time is slightly different, not only do the artists create imagery based on the musicians music, but this time the musicians also create a track based on an image created by the artist. Two exclusive new tracks from each of these artists: Ben Nash, Isengrind, C Joynes and Twinsistermoon. And exclusive new artwork by Jim Stoten, Simon Fowler, Adrianne Neal and Jake Blanchard. The sleeve is a collaboration between Jake and Jim and it is incredible! The LP is pressed on heavyweight black virgin vinyl, packaged with a A5 12 page litho printed full colour booklet.

9/17/2006 V/A Molten Strings, Train Wrecks and Birdsong CD $12.99 Students of Decay "Almost two years in the making, 'Molten Strings, Train Wrecks and Birdsong' is an expansive compilation loosely centered around sound made by stringed instruments. Strings are the primary sources of sound on all of these recordings, and the majority of the works are generated solely from them. The record offers a wealth of different approaches to these instruments. From the scathing, feedback blasts yielded by Fred Lonberg-Holm's cello and mini-amplifiers, to the dexterous blur of C. Spencer Yeh's violin fretwork, and from the pastoral vistas of Peter Wright's Danelectro 12 string, to the billowy dirges of Birchville Cat Motel, Zaimph, Family Underground, and Taiga Remains. Lending the record even further diversity are joyous bouzouki renderings from The North Sea, and damaged, eerie and beautiful contributions from Robert Horton and Brothers of the Occult Sisterhood. Presented together, the record is cohesive in the same way that the best compilations are, flowing effortlessly from track to track and, in the process, demonstrating the diversity and immense capability of all things stringed."

Our Second Release is a low-priced compilation of exclusives and tracks from albums in various stages of completion. The compilation reflects the diversity of our small village.

Orange Mountain Music has begun the restoration of audio reels from performances at The Kitchen with the goal of producing a series of CDs entitled From The Kitchen Archives.

2/11/2006 V/A New York Noise Vol. 2 double LP $23.99 Soul Jazz Records Music From The New York Underground 1977-1984. "The new wave of New York art/rock groups such as DFA, the Rapture, Juan McLean, James Murphy, The Strokes, The Liars and Radio 4 all have their roots in the early 1980s New York No Wave music scene. This is the second volume of Soul Jazz Records' New York Noise and delves further into the post-punk/dance world of New York in the 1980s. The music ranges from the guitar-driven experimentation of Sonic Youth, Red Transistor and minimalism of Rhys Chatham to the dubbed-out disco of Arthur Russell and Nicky Siano and Pulsallama. All alongside a healthy dose of punk-funk from the likes of Y Pants, Vortex and more. Glenn Branca, Rhys Chatham (minimalist classical composer), Jim Jarmusch (film-maker and founding member of Del Byzantines), Arthur Russell, Ned Sublette (writer), Thurston Moore - all included here - played key roles in bringing the New York music and art scene together in the early 1980s alongside the artist Jean Michel Basquiat, actor Vincent Gallo, poet Lydia Lunch and a host of other characters. This album features text, original photos and interviews documenting this amazing period."

4/5/2008 V/A NOHIO 7 x cassette boxset $37.99 Together Tapes "A lot has changed in the 4 years since I found the box of medical noise cassettes that would inspire the Nohio tape series. Many of the artists featured no longer live there, some projects no longer exist, and a whole new crop of sickos has clawed up into place. Each volume of the original tapes were released in an extremely limited edition of 30-33 copies and featured one of my favorite Ohio artists on one side and the found med fucked sounds on the other. The project served as a transition from my involvement with Epicene (who the original tapes were co-released with) and living in Ohio to Together and moving to Portland. The box represents a sliver of what was going on in Ohio at the time but is a personal snapshot of the weirdo scene in Ohio circa 2004. For this set Mike Shiflet has provided a bonus side of heavily concentrated visceral nerve noise not a part of the original series, which serves as a tribute to Ohio friends. Plus the inclusion of my favorite "found medical sound" side with the name Samuel T. Washington enscribed on the original. All boxes feature heavily painted,
silkscreened artwork, with all over tape labels and strange silkscreened patches all glued together and clear gunked over. This an edition of 100."

11/3/2012 V/A Pipe and Drum Music From Bolivia lathe cut LP + download $33.99 Pseudo Arcana "Pretty much as it says. Recorded by Antony Milton in 2009 Side A is from a 36 hour non-stop street fiesta in the village of Sorata in the High Andes, Side B was recorded at an overnight bacchal in a bamboo hut at the village of San Miguel del Bala in the Amazon basin. Aside from the use of pipes and drums the contrast in musical styles is as extreme as the difference in terrain and climate. The level of intoxication was comparable... Hyperventilating amateur musicians battle it out against each other and the vagaries of malfunctioning public address systems. Everybody dances. Here is a short promo video: http://youtu.be/Kvum0hOjl60
Limited edition 50 lathe cut copies with liner notes and a download card with extra tracks."
2/12/2008 V/A Playing Sound 3" CDR $7.99 Claudia "This is a short compilation of four 5 minute long guitar tracks. The initial concept was for a collection of tracks all "using guitars but not sounding like guitars." This might have offended some of the participants, so now the revised concept is simply "guitars". Ranging from the deep glacial drift of Un Ciego, through the scratchy feedback broadcasts of Ben Spiers, and the cosmic processed fizz of CJA & Jani Hellen, to the binary "noise versus silence" melodies of Pumice."

7/16/2006 V/A Radio Algeria CD $14.99 Sublime Frequencies "Radio Algeria is a multi-dimensional assembly of audio culture from the Mediterranean coast to the undefined border areas of the Sahara Desert and beyond. This is perhaps the most diverse collection of the Algerian listening experience ever presented featuring raw Berber folk, modern Arabic pop, sacred Islamic traditional, Andalusian orchestral, Guesba (the origin of Rai), classic early Rai, Khabyle, Tuareg, Saharaui, and hybrid music styles influenced by Europeans to the north and sub-Saharan Africa to the south. The presence of French culture is a relevant factor in some of these tracks as modern history would suggest and the language is still spoken by a large portion of the population. No English is spoken on Algerian-produced radio. Collected, assembled and edited in 2005 from AM, FM, and shortwave broadcasts recorded in Algeria, there are radio finds here that defy categorization. Excerpts of bumper music, DJ announcements, advertisements, and radio station IDs reinforce the transitions between the musical segments throughout this production."
1/14/2014 V/A Radio Niger CD $16.99 Sublime Frequencies "Although it's one of the poorest nations on the planet in terms of the UN's Human Development Index, Niger has one of the most diverse and richly ornamented cultures on the African continent. The country's first station, Radio Niger, went on the air in 1958 and was renamed Voix du Sahel in 1974. In 1979, the government established the Broadcasting Corporation of Niger State (BCNS). Today, Radio Niger is where the country's range of ethnicities, with their disparate customs of language and music, combine to create an astonishingly complex sonic patchwork: Bawdy, drunken sages and storytellers wandering into the studio; local shout-outs to girlfriends and family members; comedy skits juxtaposed with Zarma/Songhai mollo (a regional stringed instrument) and Denke-denke mollo from neighboring Burkina Faso dissolving into Tuareg guitar blues trance. News snippets from RFI and the BBC vie for supremacy with Hausa women's ensembles; Malian Kora collides with Zarma Koranic transmissions; lo-fi cassettes from the marketplace bump up against animist Bori folk dirges and the vapid autotune stylings of modern Nigerian pop. DJs bring an improvisational element to local radio: singing along with tracks live on air; creating live multichannel compositions and avant-collage cut-ups; and generally preserving the human element that has long since disappeared from corporate Western radio. In short, Radio Niger is outlaw radio, broadcast with freedom and spontaneity, and bathed in an arid fidelity that reveals the region's character and landscape. Recorded on location by Hisham Mayet 2004-2007. Edited/sequenced by Alan Bishop. Includes an 8-page booklet with photos and liner notes by Hisham Mayet."

8/31/2010 V/A Regolith Vol 1 LP $15.99 Moon Glyph "Regolith" is a term used by lunar scientists to describe the loose scree of stones covering the solid rock of the moon. From the scrappy fuzzabilly of the Leisure Birds' "Burn the Beach" to Moonstone's pontificate-n-jam, Moon Glyph have found an apt title for their first compilation of local bands. Regolith Vol.1 is a wide sampling of songs scattershot across a solid foundation of rock by artists committed to the exploration of new vibrations and frequencies. The listener will find all forms of psychedelia on this record: laid back odes to laid-back women from Magic Castles and Velvet Davenport (with a little help from Ariel Pink and Gary War), a rave-up from Vampire Hands, a spaced out war-drum workout from the Daughters of the Sun, and a pair of face-melters courtesy of The Blind Shake and Skoal Kodiak amongst others."

5/18/2004 V/A Rural Psychogeography CD $14.99 Nexsound New (May 2004) release from Ukranian label featuring these artists: Tom Carter and Vanessa Arn, Francisco Lopez, Jason Kahn, Anla Courtis, Andrey Kiritchenko, Tomas Korber / Gunter Muller, The Radian, Martin Tetreault, Rosy Parlane and The Moglass. “Psychogeography as a socially critical art practice could reveal itself only in the city. Psychogeographers of the sixties searched for the secret
territories, where suppressed desires were particularly intense, expecting to find them primarily in the points of concentrated sociality. In these points sociality reached critical mass and broke out between the
disciplinary realm of the city and a spontaneous self-actualization of an individual. As a result, the events that were provoked and captured by psychogeographers, turned out to be transgressive evidence of ‘the holiday of revolution’. The locales where turmoil and confusion, demonstrations of madness and mental play and other ‘curious occurrences’ were the most frequent, held pride of place on psychogeographic maps. However, the time when the philosophy of schizy-analysis and the aesthetics of situationalism
spurted out to city streets, has passed. The post-coital depression that followed the orgy discouraged and upset the participants, and they left city streets. The resistance remains important and actual, although its methods change. It is no longer a strike; it is rather a partisan movement, ‘resistance through escape’. Those who are unable to accept this fact turn into terrorists, blow art up or start revolutions and rebellions in their own minds. However, the real partisans retire and hide, secluding themselves from everyone,
confining themselves to external and internal country roads and wood trails, and staying off the beaten tracks where the solitude in crowd and garish sameness await the creator. The lost simplicity and naturalness are in provincial marginalias, not in carnivals of barricades. The message/transmitter corresponds to the location of transmission. This is neither a manifest nor a general discourse; it is more of an attempt to convey the meaning in the most compressed way, for instance, through free musical improvisation. The message/transmitter itself gives an impression of the situation on the certain road or trail, and, moreover, an immediate and clear one. But what is more important, since psychogeography here is valuable by itself and does not have to pursue any other objectives, the transmitter is also valuable per se, and the message about the event that takes place within the secret territory is considered as the event itself.
Herein a partisan can use the latest achievements of the civilization for the demolition of this same civilization. The result comes through as a laptop in the woods serving as the most mobile psycho-prosthesis which creates, captures, stores and transmits meanings. City [p]artisans keep in touch with rural psychogeographers and readily adopt their experience. As a result, an underground station in Paris all of a sudden becomes reminiscent of a country backyard filled with sounds made by domestic animals, insects, people attending to their chores, and even power supply lines. Generally speaking, any psychogeography that allows finding a valuable method of personal expression that previously seemed impossible, can be considered rural. We cannot say that the realization of personal expression is getting back on track in postmodern era, but the impossibility of realization turns into its possibility which can be carried into effect far from semantic highways and avenues. Moreover, since any expression, whether it is signed or not, is personal in one way or other, and the signed but unmade one is personal twofold, a lot of secret spots reveal themselves on country roads. This is why the path of a rural psychogeographer is long. He will not encounter the Minotaur in the labyrinth of country roads because this labyrinth does not have a center where the Minotaur could have taken up his residence. This is why the labyrinth looks like a rhizome of surface; having entered it once, one can wander about for ever, endlessly discovering new liaisons between the well-known locations. This is why the wayfarer must take care about the durability of his footwear and take a die knife with him. The handle of this knife is located in Europe and North America, the cutting blade passes through Ukraine, and the blade end is directed towards New Zealand which is one of the most distant and at the same time most impressive secret points.” - Natalia Zagurskaya

4/24/2006 V/A Sound Surrounds Us Volume 3 CDR $12.99 musicyourmindwillloveyou "Four long tracks by four different acts for four different whacks rameses iii get off the planet,with throats as fine as needles dig into the clay and rock,ffehro wander lost through the woods and ajilvsga fall backways into the ocean." "If my memory serves me I believe that I have written a few words about the previous releases in the Sound Surrounds Us Volume series as well, and just as with the predecessors this four track album proves to be very worthwhile. The icing of the cake is the 18 minutes long opener from UK's Rameses III that is subtle and organic in the same way as Stars of the Lid's beguiling dronescapes. Pewter's (Antony Milton, Campbell Kneale and James Kirk) "With Throats As Fine As Needles" continues to explore the epic drone, but this time things get slightly more claustrophobic and dramatic. That aspect is taken to its extreme in the fucked up blast of all things noise and tangle of melting feedback that is "Owl Trigger" from Ajilvsaga (Brad Rose and Nathan Young). A worthy close to a fine compilation." - Broken Face
2/16/2005 V/A Sound Surrounds Us, Volume 1 CDR $15.99 musicyourmindwillloveyou "The 'Sound Surrounds Us' series will focus on sound as environment.

Focusing on the abstraction of space and time through the manipulation of rhythm and tone, these tracks are designed to open the mind."
9/26/2013 V/A Sounds of Silence LP $25.99 Alga Marghen "Sounds of Silence" is an anthology of some of the most intriguing silent tracks in recording history and includes rare works, among others, by Andy Warhol, John Lennon, Maurice Lemaitre, Sly & the Family Stone, Robert Wyatt, John Denver, Whitehouse, Orbital, Crass, Ciccone Youth, Afrika Bambaataa and of course Yves Klein. In their own quiet way, these silences speak volumes: they are performative, political, critical, abstract, poetic, cynical, technical, absurd… They can be intended as a memorial or a joke, a special offer, or something entirely undefined. The carefully chosen silences of this anthology are intrinsically linked to the medium of reproduction itself and reveal it's nude materiality. They expose their medium in all its facets and imperfections, including the effect of time and wear. At the most basic level, these silences are surfaces. And it is in their materiality that they distinguish themselves from the conceptual experiments of John Cage with "4'33". From the 1950s silence has found a place in the economic structure of the record industry and since then it would increasingly be appropriated by a vast array of artists is a vast array of contexts. Indeed, the silent tracks seems to know no boundaries. The LP presents the silences as they were originally recorded, preserving any imperfection that the hardware conferred upon the enterprise, without banning the possibility to satisfying the ear. The liner notes provide historical background for each track, revealing the stated (or presumed) motivations for these silences, while providing novel sound correspondences or interferences. This album is meant to be played loud (or not), at any time, in any place: a true aural experience! Only 250 copies available for distribution, in gatefold iconic sleeve."
10/31/2009 V/A Spiritual Machine CDR $8.99 Deep Water "While our fourth split release isn't quite tied to a "theme", it does share an intentionally atmospheric state of mind: We contacted three Transatlantic individuals who we knew to be particularly skilled at the creation of musical-electrical inscapes, and asked them to bring us something "hypnotic" (however they interpreted that) from their respective audio laboratories. Spiritual Machine is the mesmerizing result, an hour-long interlaced energy meditation that takes their distinct creations - France's Enfer Boréal offers up a densely vibrational 3-part suite that confirms his status atop of the Euro avant-drone pile; the.bricoleur, a UK-based sound sculptor who has worked with the likes of Current 93, contributes the spectral concréte of the title track; and PA's own Tuscarora Borealis, also a member of the Evening Fires family, beams in a brace of looping nature drones that channel classic kosmische impulses - and weaves them into a larger sonic hologram that encompasses whatever you might find there and more. Best heard quite loud from a position of comfortable stasis."
1/1/2014 V/A St. Albert's Dream LP $21.99 Lysergic Sound Distributors "A brand new, limited edition, vinyl-only, hand-numbered pressing of 800 copies. One of the heaviest fuzz psych garage comps ever pressed; psychedelic with an acid inspired sound throughout. There's 11 extra heavy cuts originally recorded from 1968 to 1972 by 11 different, very obscure bands from all over the U.S. All the tracks are authorized, restored, and re-mastered from various sources, including unreleased master tapes and newly discovered acetates. None of these tracks have been compiled on vinyl anywhere else. These unknown bands include Oracle, Wheatridge, the funereal organ and sludge guitar of Greylock Mansion, Frozen Sun (who perform a seven minute Hendrix space fuzz anthem), and seven more similar unknown bands that leave you with a record full of acid-drenched trippy lyrics, swirling organ, spacey effects and heavy guitar. Plenty of fuzz and thumpin' wah-wah. The wildly colorful cryptic psychedelic cover is a brother to Cream's Disreali Gears, or maybe Golden Dawn's Power Plant; obviously over-the-top!"
2/12/2008 V/A Stay in School Drugs are for Losers You Suck cassette $7.99 Teen Action Records "Featuring: Lambsbread (Ohio's favorite jam band), Gagging Nuns (gtr/drm duo delivers screeching pulsations), Nathan Snell (solo gtr waves of spastic bliss), Homo The Wolf (howling noise of the warm blooded variety), Honey Mountain Whistlers (members of 16BPU, Sword Heaven & Anna Ranger, no-fi mouth music), Furfur (conjuring up the black magic of banalty)"

Features new tracks by Frozen Faces (aka Deutsch Nepal), Trepaneringsritualen (Dead Letters Spell Out Dead Words), SMEA, Ättestupa (Sewer Election), and many more. You need this to obtain full knowledge. Strictly limited, 100 tapes only."
4/6/2010 V/A Sunday Matinee @ The Frying Pan one-sided LP $13.99 American Tapes w/Connelly & The Machines, Body Morph, Hive Mind, Dog Lady & Drainolith / So the other day, me and my lab buddy supreme Scott were knee f'in deep in trying to find out if a huge craggly motor was delta or wye three phase connected, and needless to say, was NOT having luck. It was a one of them RAW bologna built motors that has wire numbers, but its pointless cause its all on its own weirdo system. Whatever. So as usual, we shot the shit.
"Whatâ•?s up this weekend man?"
"Not much, got a killer afternoon gig at the spot on Sunday...."
"Whatâ•?s a gig?"
"Ah.... Iâ•?m having some of my weirdo friends over to make ah.... music...."
"You make music?"
"Sure"
"Would you ever play a 'gig' for the troops?"
"We should get black to that motor...I think I know the lead wires now..."
"Well, I canâ•?t come over, I gotta fix my tires on my hunting jeep, but you know what would rule Olson?"
"Whatâ•?s that?"
"If you would press that jammer on wax, mix all the tracks together into one inzane mess and sent it to Smith out west to press...."
"Man, you might be on to something"
"Make it one long one-sider with a lock groove, I mean shit...thatâ•?s how I remember gigs anyway.... and just use a flyer for the cover!!!"
"My man!!!"
So I took Scott's advice. Took the killer matinee jam, got out the scalpel, mixed everything together seamless inzane style, book ended it with an EVIL Hive Mind loop and boosh!!!! Pressed gig memory!!!! So it's just like a gig, except you donâ•?t have KNOX MITCHELL's dad dropping you off or Collino spilling brews everywhere or your secret recipe INZANE CHILLI remains burning up in the bottoms of an empty crock pot. Oddly, not a peep of crew-audience noise to be found. Dog Lady played acoustic string scrape, Dan Body jammed reed universe from the uneven side (and then BLASTED Disclose and Firmeza 10 in the jamm room), Drainolith is my main man Alex K from Montreal and kept it uber real with amazing synth scramble, live from yep, THE BASEMENT. Greh said he did a cover of THE SHINING but Iâ•?ve never seen that mini-series. Dead Machines and Connelly jammed magical pixie flutes, infected metal scrape and vocals from an eerie afternoon lagoon. Like an endless gig, ...you gotta SIT THRU THE WHOLE THING...in one inzane memory blurr surpreme....Record ends with an EVIL Hive Mind lock groover, endless...party.... forever.... Was a blast, more of this style to come. And BYOB!!! There are three party stores right in the hood, duh!!! 2pm SHARP!!!> Edition of 100 in handmade recycled sleeves, numbered."

12/12/2009 V/A Tarantismo Summit: Volume 1 LP $11.99 Rampage Recordings "If you look closely at the four points propping up the initial installment of the Tarantismo Summit, none of them seem to make much sense inhabiting a split LP together. KK Rampage are punk-ish brutes with guitars that dent skulls. Smegma are a poop-y Portland improv outfit with enough underground cred to rival the greats. Insect Joy play a sort of impenetrable freak-prog. Ghost Moth are noisy and have a hard-on for ornate instrumentation and skronk. The one bond linking these bands to the same quad is the will to push things forward, as The Streets would say, and there's no excuses if you're not ready to jump aboard, my friend. All four of these acts are wacky enough that no one in their right mind would listen to them, yet all four likely find that when they are appreciated, they're really, really, really appreciated. Tarantismo finds all four in top form. Smegma contribute the first half-side of vinyl, and it's a doozy. What do kazoos, drops of water, retarded tom- and hand-drumming, sudden blurts, chants, whistles, skittering electronic tones, and shakers have in common? Smegma. What do choppy digital effects, voice samples, cymbal crashes, and a total lack of structure have in common? Smegma. What do high-pitched squeals, TV static, radio dials, short-lived bass guitar bloops, and random drum-stick-on-kitchen-counter taps have in common? You guessed it: Frank Stallone. I mean, Smegma. They rule shit. Next up are KK Rampage, and the Chicago act offer a tweaked version of their tweaker-scum vitriol. They're definitely recording in a cave or an echo chamber on this shit; either that or singer Johnny Rampage stowed himself in a meat locker for a few months and used the starvation to push himself to new heights. Either way, this is hungry music, urgent and looking for something, anything, to cure its aching head. Of course, if you were to incur a headache you would never leave a KK Rampage record playing; that's just stupid. KK are, as I've said so many times, the rightful continuation of the momentum created by Rhode Island bands like Arab On Radar and Six Finger Satellite, especially when you focus on their rhythm section, but the multi-layered vocals, overall sloppiness of the guitar sound and haunting sections of songs like "Dark Voices Calling Out" are all calling cards of a project very much its own influence. Flailing, flapping, floating, flipping and flopping, KK Rampage are that fish you caught but can't bring yourself to club. But you will; you will if you want to eat. Insect Joy? I'm just going to skip them... Kidding!!! IJ are like a bad cabaret act on rewind or a mariachi band that plays only pitch-bended keytars or a fuzzy nightmare from which you may or may not awake. The Floridians conduct their songs much like a maestro conducts her/his ensemble, only they really seem to have little control of their subjects. Like an author using simple, snappy sentences to get out of the way of a story, Insect Joy channel inner dementia and move to the effin' side once they do. The sounds that emit are disorienting but tethered to a rhythmic component, which helps the whole dish go down smoother. The space-age sine wave that follows doesn't make any sense coupled with the preceding performance, and that somehow renders the song cycle perfect for the likes of Tarantismo. And now, finally, Ghost Moth from Brooklyn, an army of noise instruments gone horribly wrong, a saxophonist tooting away on a deep-city rooftop to no one in particular as the ravages of the city crackle on below, a high-pitched tone sounding from the netheregions of the soul that could either be a patient's heart rate or an aural warning of impending dddoom, depending on whether you're conscious or dreaming (I like to hover in between!). GM produce with machine-like efficiency the chaos of a bleeding, burning city, a land torn between greedy capitalists and the Rest of Us. Or at least that's how I read it. What else do you need to know? Pick up this crumpled-up piece of noise-waste before it disappears like your friends will if you play this at a party." - www.tinymixtapes.com/Various-Artists-Rampage

11/1/2014 V/A Temporary: Selections From Dunedin's Pop Underground 2011-2014 LP $16.99 Ba Da Bing! "On the same day Ba Da Bing releases an album by Dunedin legend Hamish Kilgour, the label is honored to present the city's current artists. The tiny city of Dunedin, located in the Otago Region of New Zealand, is synonymous with smart bands, incredible melodies and a wholly distinct and innovative music. Thanks to The Clean, The Chills, The Bats, The Verlaines, and The Dead C, Dunedin has amassed a worldwide reputation for innovative music. Local label Fishrider Records has taken on the mission of compiling and producing an album that casts a light toward the Dunedin of today. These bands have all created their own sound away from the shadow of their city's past, yet like many of their predecessors they retain the air of slightly disturbed melancholia along with a sense of space and distance from the rest of the world. Whether it is dark synth-pop, teen angst noise pop, guitar-and-organ jangle, or all-out psychedelic weirdness, these songs all come from a place on the edge of the world where the young still read books in abundance and fend off boredom by creating music and art in cold houses. Yet again, an extraordinary number of incredible groups are populating the scene, and the songs on Temporary are the best of the best-a Dunedin Double Plus Good, if you will."

1/17/2010 V/A The Continuing Saga Of The Visiting Kitten CDR $12.99 Sonic Dust Recordings "Excellent new compilation out together and released by Andrew Paine and Brian Lavelle with all proceeds going to Cats Protection. The biggest draw on the disc are the two previously unreleased tracks from Richard Youngs, one a virtual Richard Youngs Band track with Richard playing guitar, bass, drums and keyboards on a beautiful pop song that could easily have sat on his recent Beyond The Valley Of Ultrahits CD-R and the other a classic unreleased Ilk track from an album that was later abandoned. The track is co-written with Andrew Paine although it’s performed solo by Richard and it rivals “The Point Of Heaven” as one of the most beautiful song-based chord ascensions of that group’s career. The rest of the compilation is no comedown, with great tracks from artists associated with Sonic Oyster, all of whom turn in complimentary keyboard/drone/kosmische-styled tracks that almost segue into each other to create a beautiful nowhere zone. Andrew Paine’s solo track is one of his darker electro creations, with infernal vocals and voids of noise while the Space Weather track moves even closer to that odd half-light choral synth sound of early Coil. Also great tracks from Texlahoma, Brian Lavelle, Alastair Crosbie and Brian Lavelle & Andrew Paine. I rate this comp even higher than the earlier Glasgow Wassail. Edition of only 100 copies, one time pressing, already sold out at source. Highly recommended." - Volcanic Tongue
2/23/2004 V/A The Golden Road (To Unlimited Edition) 7" $6.99 Humbug 2003 compilation of experimental music featuring Bruce Russell, Antonym, Sindre Bjerga / Anders Gjerde, and Taming Power. “BRUCE RUSSELL has spent the last 20 years refining a unique approach to musical practice which owes much to more esoteric disciplines such as sound art, free 'noise' improvisation and electro-acoustic composition. Coming from a 'rock' background, he has broadened his interests, methods and arsenal of techniques to include practices and approaches to sound that have moved him to a position outside any musical mainstream one could care to name. At the same time he has done much to network like-minded New Zealand artists, and to actively promote these artists in the international music scene. He is now a minor but firmly established fixture in the international improvisation underground, known both for his own work and that of his label, Corpus Hermeticum. He plays and records with the Dead C., A Handful of Dust, and Pieters/Russell/Stapleton, as well as solo under his own name. He has recently collaborated with Ralf Wehowsky, Birchville Cat Motel and Greg Malcolm. ANTONYM is a one-man project working in the fields of both rhythm and non-rhythm, utilising electronic with found sounds and loop tapes. It should be considered 'Concrete' yet falls outside most people's idea of how alienating and limited this might be. BJERGA/GJERDE have been constructing sound collages on and off for about a year and a half often using acoustic improvisation, found sounds, processed field recordings.........some tracks have appeared on a few compilations, and a full length disc, entitled 'stavanger' was issued recently on the greek 'editions_zero' label. TAMING POWER came into existence in 1987. This project has over the years come to encompass a wide musical range from radio ready-mades and électronique
concrète to pieces using only el.guitar or piano. An important part of the project has been to explore the possibilities of tape recorder technology - used not only for recording/editing but also as independent musical instruments to generate electronic sound. Several vinyl and cassette releases on Early Morning Records.”

8/2/2008 V/A The Tryst Haunt Series #3: Spring 2008 3 x 7" set $22.99 L'animaux Tryst Field Recordings Three limited edition (300 copies) 7" records from Visitations & Big Blood, Prisma / Drona Parva, The North Sea / Corsican Paintbrush
"Visitations & Big Blood's ''Lectric 'Lashes': in the true spirit of the occasion, southern maine's outerworldly psych-folk beacons visitations and big blood decide to forgo the concept of the "split" release and instead launch forth into a mindbending collaborative effort. the bands are not new to performing together: they've toured together and have even backed each other up under various names. but this release marks the first physical release by their combined forces, and, unbelievably enough, is big blood's first vinyl release ever. the ease with which the bands complement each other is astounding - five clear voices reaching together to guide the record through a buzz-guitar singalong, a breathless pastoral folk tune, a chugging nightmare rock-dirge, and a sweetly-lighthearted vocal exercise. this 33rpm 7" record contains four tracks in a 14-minute official runtime, but will play forever if you let it. in addition, the record comes with a bonus cd-r of tracks from the late-night jam session that pre-dated the recording sessions for the 7", as well as the four tracks from the 7" itself in digital form. a one-of-a-kind package, with each record sleeve offset printed with the bands' artwork in dark blue ink on colorful, individually hand-painted sheets of heavy art paper. embossed, hand-numbered limited edition of 300 record/cd-r sets - Prisma & Drona Parva's 'Best Buds" 7": the two spectral ladies of prisma mark their debut release with this 7" split with drona parva. prisma has been performing the quietest shows in and around portland for a couple years now, mixing softly echoing vocals with flute drones, only the gentlest plucking of various stringed instruments, and the occasional analog noise rumble. their a-side track resonates with beautiful restraint and delicacy; the stunning debut all of us entranced by their live show have hoped for. on the b-side, drona parva--the long-running solo project of time-lag records' nemo bidstrup--turns in a blissed-out muti-tracked free-flowing guitar composition. trance-inducing acoustic plucks and strums eventually give way to shimmering waves of fuzz guitar until the whole thing becomes impossibly beautiful. the minimal packaging for the record complements the gentle touch of the recordings held within: the 45rpm 7" record is a custom, slightly-marbled avocado green color with a yellow-green mandala-design center-label. the record is held in a semi-transparent vellum sleeve that has been hand-punched on the corners, giving a soft mask to the striking colors on the record itself, and hand-numbered to 300. The North Sea's "nikolette (reborn)" b/w Corsican Paintbrush's "under storm skies": anyone familiar with the extensive north sea discography is aware of brad rose's keen ability to mix it up between eastern-tinged folk instrumentals and more straightforward strummers, which usually feature rose's classic low-in-the-mix mumble-drunk vocals and charmingly loose playing. "nikolette (reborn)" finds him revising a beautiful, quivering folk song from 2007's baby blue bones cd (mymwly) with the more-confident-than-ever vocals now at the forefront, and an army of acoustic strings and hand percussion backing this boxtop prophet's hymn. corsican paintbrush's contribution follows suit, foregrounding eden hemming rose's soft, lilting vocal melody and some rhythm-driving strums while keeping a lush, hazy swell of drones and cave-echo vocals as the backdrop. equally ethereal and dusty, like 4AD dream-pop marred by dirt under fingernails and ash from the campfire turning cheeks black. black 7" vinyl record has a hand-stamped center label, and comes packaged in a textured black art paper sleeve with flower petal inclusions, with line-drawings and stamped titles in white ink, and an embossed screenprinted insert featuring liner notes and a topographic street map of tulsa. limited edition hand-numbered to 300."
2/7/2009 V/A The Tryst Haunt Series #3: Summer 2008 3 x 7" set $22.99 L'animaux Tryst Field Recordings Three limited edition (300 copies) 7" records from GHQ, Vollmar, and Elephant Micah. "GHQ's "requiem for bhophal" - this veritable brooklyn all-star team of marcia bassett (zaimph, hototogisu, double leopards, zaika), steve gunn (check the solo digitalis cd sundowner), and pete nolan (magik markers) has been killing it on releases on time-lag, three-lobed, not not fun and others since their debut in 2005, and this 7" includes guitarist marc orleans (sunburned hand of the man) in orbit as well. the extended-playing 45 (six minutes on each side) finds ghq hitting that bliss-drift stride, with droned-out atmospheres of guitar layers soothing your headspace into a fully-conscious trance. occasional vocals just barely peak through the blanket, and there's definitely enough noise to remind you this ain't just about good vibes. black 7" vinyl record is held in a black art paper sleeve, with gold-ink offset printing on the back and a paste-on full-color cover. limited edition hand-numbered to 300; embossed for authenticity. Vollmar's "new best friend b/w flood punch & holy blessing" - justin vollmar's recordings often sound wonderfully and pleasantly small-scale; they begin with gentle strums like a feathered wing brushing a rusted-out six-string, soon joined by the fragile voice of a reluctant singer who's got only one person's ear in mind. occasionally calling to mind lo-fi songwriters like oldham and elverum, vollmar's songs are focused on the intimate and intricate, and recently his presentation has become fleshed out with full-band-type arrangements - modest drums, mini-synths and warm electric guitars in service to the songs. this 7" single presents alternate, more pared-down versions of three songs from his upcoming tell the dirt lp. black 7" record held in a tri-fold chipboard sleeve, in-house screenprinted on front and back, with full-color paste-on photo on front and a hand-written note on the third fold. limited edition, hand-numbered to 300, with embossed dust sleeves. Elephant Micah's "in midnight b/w ocean floor" - as consistently great a songwriter as we've had this decade, elephant micah's joe o'connell is always affecting and almost unbelievably right-on, with a subtle vocal delivery, modest home-tracked recording fidelity, and slight country-western touches. which is what makes this 7" release so intriguing - this is elephant micah interpreting two songs written by friends of his (time and temperature & microwave background), and they are his most recently-recorded works. as expected, elephant micah truly makes these songs his own through no subtle re-interpretation. synth tones, backwards noise guitar, and even a trumpet solo set these songs apart from both their original versions and elephant micah's past work, and yet joe's voice and vision comes through as accurate as always. befitting the "recycling" theme of the songs, this black 7" record comes packaged in discarded 12" LP sleeves, which have been cut down to 7" jacket size, and then in-house screenprinted over with the release info. limited edition, hand-numbered to 300."
5/29/2008 V/A The Tryst Haunt Series 1: Autumn 2007 3 x 7" $22.99 L'animaux Tryst Field Recordings "Three limited edition (300 copies) 7" records from Bad Bus/Tempera, Cursillistas, and Lightning strike Lightning, bundled together with 100% natural jute twine. Lo-fi vibrations in handmade packaging: Bad Bus/Tempera in a hand-ripped, machine-sewn patchwork fabric sleeve; Cursillistas in an offset print/hand-drawn India Ink art paper sleeve; LSL in an in-house screenprint-over-photograph heavy chipboard sleeve." "A marvellous trio of records from this Maine based label, which specialises in small runs of handcrafted releases of the most esoteric rural nature. [...] Thoroughly delicately lovely" - Byron Coley, The Wire, January 2008

Now presented in a strictly limited edition of 500 copies on coloured vinyl and packaged in a lavish gatefold sleeve with extensive notes and stills from the movie. A luxurious package that pays homage to what is without doubt one of the most innovative and provocative British cult horror films ever produced. This is definitely the stuff that myths are made of! Containing exclusive material from the later, longer version of the film, including the song 'Gently Johnny,' which was not available on early LP issues. Paul Giovanni, together with Magnet, has created a mysterious and sinister world that has a life of it's own nearly 30 years after the film's release -- flutes, lyres, harmonicas, and guitars, mixed in with original and traditional material makes each song totally different, summing up the atmosphere of the movie brilliantly! The Wicker Man is a stunning soundtrack which all you movie buffs and traditional British folk music fans are advised to snap up for your collection!" Orange-swirl colored vinyl.

6/25/2013 V/A Tokyo Flashback Vol. 7 CD $15.99 PSF Released: September 15, 2009
"Includes tracks by: Le son de l'os; Bon no Kubo; Derakushi; Sabu Orimo Unit; Touyoumajyo; hasegawa-shizuo. Once again PSF Records has combed the darkest live houses on the grungiest streets on the wrong side of the Tokyo tracks to bring you the undiscovered cream of the city's psychedelic improvisation scene! Eighteen years on from the original Tokyo Flashback compilation, the city is still throwing up unknown groups with their own viscerally weird takes on the esoteric practices of psychedelic rock, garage punk, acid folk drone and free improvisation. These are groups that wrongfoot our facile assumptions about how genre, technique and conception music should combine, whether the tactile space improvs of Le son de l'os (featuring Yuko Hasegawa from Onna-kodomo) or Hasegawa-Shizuo; the white-hot free-punk chaos of Derakushi; Bon no Kubo's classically minimalist free-improv moves or the bizarre shapes thrown up by shakuhachi sensation Sabu Orimo's unit. Six tracks, seventy-six minutes. Liner notes in English and Japanese."

(piano), Michihiro Sato (tsugaru-jamisen), Yoshihide Otomo (turntable), Masayoshi Urabe (alto sax). "Free music or improvised music is the most direct expression of music's primal aspects (questions like why do we sing?), and its experimental aspects (what do we mean by musical expression?). This is why the best free music leaves such an intense impression in peoples' hearts." - Yuji Itsumi. "Compilation containing six lengthy solo tracks by some of the most fascinating improvising musicians currently active in Japan. The CD documents a series of lecture-concerts, exploring the meanings, methods and implications of free music, which took place between September 2003 and February 2004 at Mesar Haus in Tokyo. Approaches vary between the endlessly fascinating, grey kaleidoscopic fields of Haino's hurdy-gurdy, the art-brut physical terrorism of Masayoshi Urabe, the traditional improvisatory, plucking style of Sato's tsugaru-jamisen, and the anti-fundamentalist feedback dialectics of Otomo's turntable work. All bore channels through time-space continua and consensus reality like no one's business." - Alan Cummings

Burroughs, The Atrocity Exhibition by J.G. Ballard, some of the more wacked-out Faulkner (Absalom, Absalom or Oxford Pigeon), poetry from the back covers of random free jazz albums, and the manifestos and memoirs of convicted serial killers." -Tony Rettman, Blastitude

9/16/2007 V/A West Coast Post Asiatic LP $12.99 Urck Records "The term Post Asiatic may come across as another ridiculous entry in the dictionary of contemporary sub-genre music but the name is the most appropriate encapsulation for what has easily become the most interesting musical movement in nearly twenty years. Due to space limitations the West Coast Post Asiatic compilation fails to include the majority of artists on the Western Coast of the US who focus on or dabble in Asian/Eastern influenced avant-garde art. However; it offers a glimpse into the fierce beauty and embracing expressionism these artists are conveying. The compilation includes work from Amps for Christ, Soriah, hop-frog's drum jester devotional, Auto Da Fe, Sikhara & Refrigerator Mothers with sound that travels from electric sitars & winding guitars to tribal animalistic percussion, cyclic dron-e chanting, gamelan-esque free-spasm metal percussion to dreamy Chinese dulcimers and moon guitars. The marble vinyl is limited to 505 copies and varies in color." (FROM THE LINER NOTES) "Post-Asiatic" is a term I invented around 2002, while I was running an experimental music series at a Chinese restaurant and tiki room called The Jasmine Tree in Portland. It was a way of succinctly describing to the press a movement of musicians and other performers who arrived at their commingled bodies of work by interpolating the traditions of various Asian and Middle Eastern peoples through a distinctly Western deconstructionist methodology. By and large, these troupes and individuals resided on the West Coast, and as the years passed and the Work continued this sub-sub-genre grew both in number and in the ambition and mastery of its component artists. Last year, I received the first submission from a band identifying itself as "post-asiatic" whom I did not personally know. It's strange the way words work. The word connotes the inherent contradiction of the music it describes. Despite the respect and reverence we feel toward the cultures which inspire us, the post-asiatic ouvre has a certain minstrel-show element that's difficult to ignore. From a lifelong gestalt of images transmitted through movies, books, and live performances; a pan-asian aesthetic emerges that is true to no existing tradition. Through costume, movement, and sound we reflect a deeply-flawed history of appropriation on the part of the entitled and ill-informed Occident. We paint ourselves with white make-up instead of blackface. On the upside, the post-asiatic influence has in most cases been positive on the forms we emulate, and even saved some arts from extinction. Odissi, arguably the world's oldest form of dance, has all but died out in India but survives in the United States among mostly "white" practitioners; Hijikata and Ohno's creation of butoh was in the simplest terms a meeting of German postmodern dance with the most ancient Japanese peasant spiritualism; and the entire history of bellydance begins with suspiciously post-asiatic roots in the Victorian burlesque period. So please don't take offense at the fumbling of our clumsy fingers at the fragile crystalline perfections of the Orient. From love our desire springs, and like a callous lover we mar the object of desire in our quest to understand it. 5000." - Noah Mickens, Halloween 2006

11/15/2008 V/A Wooden Guitar CD $12.99 Locust 'Fall 2008 marks the 5th anniversary of locust's inaugural Wooden Guitar compilation touted then, as today, as a simple title with a simple concept. Back in print on CD.' 'Wooden Guitar is an inspired excursion into the creases and folds of modern deltadelica & a thinly veiled homage to the great Takoma compilations of yore (remember that great Kottke, Lang, Fahey
collection?) where guitarists could sit back, work those muscles in their fingers and go the extra musical distance. Four of the great worldwide guitarists -- Germany's Steffen Basho-Junghans, Seattle's Sir Richard Bishop (the Sun City Girls), Japan's Tetuzi Akiyama & Virginia's Jack Rose give us a fresh look at a very old instrument with gloriously stretched out solo compositions." - label. "A compilation has the potential to become legendary. When presenting a set of related artists, a compilation has the power to inspire and create legions of followers, birthing entire scenes...Locust Music's Wooden Guitar doesn't feature many different artists-four performers over five tracks in seventy minutes-but shows plenty of diversity within the limits of the instrumentation. And in sticking to the purity of the acoustic instrument-refusing to use electronics, effects or overdubs-Wooden Guitar presents these artists' visions in a way that may become, well, legendary… Wooden Guitar is one of the finest examples of the avant-garde embracing folk elements. Relentlessly pursuing new approaches to this most conservative of instruments, these artists don't lose sight of tradition. Instead of pure aural exploration, we are given five compositions that exhibit a good degree of soul." Tom Eigen, Fake Jazz
