2/21/2009 Z'ev & Ramona Ponzini Ankoku CD $12.99 A Silent Place "Ramona's personal touch is certainly her own particular Japanese chant, together with the use of traditional percussions, bells and cymbals from Japan. Z'ev has been enchanted by all those elements (listening to Praxinoscope), asking to Ramona for this cooperation. This is the result of this 'long-distance encounter'. Ankoku is a Japanese word which means 'deep darkness'. For this debut Ramona's voice and percussions has been registered by My Cat is an Alien in their mysterious studio, placed somewhere in Western Alps, adding some field recordings. Recordings has then been sent to Z'ev who has processed them with some of his typical percussions. Z'ev deconstruct the sweetness of Ramona's chants, enfolding the pieces with a darker atmosphere. We have an obscure 5 tracks album, structured on charming vocal melodies moving out from a 'haunted house'.
5/11/2009 Za Siodma Gora (Over The 7th Mountain) Rogalow - Piosenki ku pokrzepieniu serc (Songs to Strengthen Your Heart) LP $22.99 Obuh "After 12 years since releasing "Music The World Does Not See" the new album over the 7th mountain is born. As usually Za Siodma Gora balances in its own way on a borderland of folk, psychedelia, minimal and experimental music revealing 10 original songs the world does not see. Generated by mostly acoustic instruments backed up by some vintage electronics with absolutely ANALOG attitude. With no irony or cynism, warm, simple and sincere emission to strengthen your heart among bright darkness of the media world. For all ramblers of imagination, sense researchers and Sunday daydreamers. For all who care. Among invited musicans we got here Remek Hanaj (ex-KSIEZYC) on hurdy-gurdy, Ryszard Latecki (LATERNA) on trumpet, Kuba Suchar on drums (ex-ROBOTOBIBOK), Maciej Rodakowski on saxophone (NACZYNIA), Jacek Wasowski on acoustic guitar and Andrzej Zaleski on drums.

Very nice!
12/24/2005 Zaat / Mystical Footprints of Asia split LP $15.99 Nauscopy "On one side we've got Canada's ZAAT who are like THE NEOS and LARM plus a fucking organ and a whacked sense of humor. On the other side we've got a compilation of songs taken from 78 rpm records - all Asian and Middle Eastern fare - fucking transcendental! Gorgeous covers, sharp labels, and a full-color insert."
3/23/2007 Zabrodzki, Piotr & Tatsuya Yoshida Karakany CD $15.99 Vivo Records "Young generation of Polish jazz meets Japanese free / jazz / improv / experimental Guru. Psychedelic free jazz for piano, drums, voice and bass guitar effects. Not easy but pretty refreshing sound experience."

9/17/2006 Zaika Recording From Il Corral July 2005 CDR $11.99 Heavy Other "Second release on the Heavy Other imprint: brand new, outrageously heavy duo set from Tom Carter of Charalambides and Marcia Bassett of Double Leopards / Hototogisu / GHQ et al recorded in Los Angeles in 2005 that combines the sound of collapsing galaxies with air-raids of E-bow, the sting of acid guitar and a whole vortex of unknown tongue." - Volcanic Tongue. "A long way from the delicacy of the Eclipse LP, more like a barbed wire q-tip..." Tom Carter. Edition of 205 copies in paper sleeves - recommended!
1/1/2008 Zaïmph La Nuit Electrique CD $13.99 Utech Records "Marcia Bassett (Double Leopards, Hototogisu) rears Zaimph's vile head once again on La Nuit Electrique. A raspy, delicate instrumental passage begins like a crippled music box. Elegant and soporose. Blackened guitar and amplification apprise the rest. Acrid feedback hangs in the air and vocal modulations clot inside dark rivers of current. The night electric." Edition of 500 copies.
9/17/2006 Zaïmph Live Hasselt CDR $11.99 Heavy Blossom "A frozen howl of anguish blacks out tevelvision skies and turns water to blood. This is not fashion or distraction. A tumultuous upsurge of lashing spectral form, a doom fug of revenge - a swirl, a swathe - a blistering exhalation, rising bloody. This is not a utopian attempt to build transparent cathedrals and unite mankind. This is war - pure and bloody - implacable - real."
2/4/2007 Zaïmph Mirage of the Other LP $17.99 Gipsy Sphinx "The third release on the Gipsy Sphinx imprint is a full LP (+/-40min) from Marcia Bassett's solo project Zaïmph. Marcia is well known for her leading role in improv groups such as Double Leopards and GHQ, as well as for her groundbreaking work with free guitar/flesh metal duo Hototogisu. With her solo project Zaïmph she starts off from the base these groups laid out and takes things to another level, shredding boundaries between dark noise, drone and psych music. It's deeply meditative yet darkly disturbing and emotionally touching music. The LP, Zaïmph's vinyl debut, is pressed in a one-time edition of 525 copies on 180g vinyl with paste-on artwork on thick black jackets, full color 2-sided art paper insert, resealable plastic sleeve; etc.." Highly recommended!
9/30/2005 Zaïmph Moon's Pool CDR $15.99 Heavy Blossom "Second world-beating solo album from Marcia Bassett (Double Leopards/Hototogisu/GHQ/Shackamaxon) in a beautifully packaged edition of 200 with full-colour printed wraparound sleeve, faux-leather patch and heat-burned disc in a clear plastic slipcase. Starts out with a dinosaur roar of E-bow and electricity before building to a delirious peak of pulse, piano and levitating metal. The final movement sounds closest to the second side of Richard Youngs's epochal Advent recording, with microphones aimed straight for the heart of the sun. Absolutely beautiful, highest recommendation." - Volcanic Tongue
3/21/2009 Zaïmph Serpent's Bite CD $9.99 Heavy Blossom "Zaïmph's first cd release on her own label Heavy Blossom. 'Serpent's Bite' is made up of 8 separate pieces of vapory splendor, pierced metallic sounds, flickering radiance, and exquisite anguish. Culled from the Zaimph archives and recorded between 2005 - 2006; two previously released cdr tracks, now re-edited, rest aside six unreleased tracks. Multiple amplifiers channel dense, 3-dimensional sound played live with no overdubs. This is organic darkness. Grave-vaults of guitar tunnel through distorted clouds of smoke rising from the watery abyss. Vocals of dissolving thoughts recite mysterious incantations. De-tuned piano recordings and infectious drum machine beats dissolve through phantom empires of multiple effects. 'Compleat derangement of the senses'. The entirety was mastered by Christelle Gualdi at Loosduinseweg No. 9." Zaïmph is Marcia Bassett (Double Leopards, Zaika, Hototogisu, etc.) Recommended!
11/4/2006 Zaïmph Sexual Infinity CD $12.99 Hospital Productions "marcia bassett of double leopards, hototogisu, ghq, fame on her first proper solo full length has given us one of our favorites in the history of hospital productions. sexual infinty stands refreshingly organized into six escalating pieces of her signature guitar, voice, and electronic moodscapes entrancing the listener with sinister seduction. comparisons to early 80's power electronics and industrial acts as uncommunity, mauthausen orchestra and ramleh reside in the underbelly of zaïmph's ability to generate ominous, gritty, and doom laden atmosphere cloaked in a thick lush drone. what begins with raw ethereal guitar shadows of longing delight closes with vital gripping electronic tension."
2/6/2015 Zaïmph Two Aspects Divided LP $28.99 Yew "Two side-long pieces all electronics."
4/24/2006 Zaïmph Unfolded Gold CDR $11.99 Heavy Blossom "Latest solo album from Marcia Bassett of Double Leopards/Hototogisu/GHQ et al, released to coincide with the recent Blonde On Blonde UK tour alongside Heather Leigh Murray. Very different from the earlier Zaimph recordings, this one channels silver shots of overloaded synth and blasted vocals into a blur of speed-damaged codes, sounding a little more aerodynamic and glassy than the earlier dirt whorls of e-bowed guitar loops. First track is a pure heavy metal pulse ala Throbbing Gristle's early air-raid form, with tactile metal scree welding the whole thing to the floor while scattershots of thick analogue tone building archways of brain scramble high into the air. Later tracks combine machine sound and feedback with a wide spectrum of tonal bloot and a supremely degraded atmosphere alla Faust's gnarliest Wümme-era plant jams. It feels like Marcia is working to really push the music somewhere beyond even the last few Double Leopards records and the result is a whole bunch of previously-unmapped space to explore. Edition of 100 in full-colour wraparound sleeves with insert. Highly recommended." - Volcanic Tongue
4/1/2015 Zaïmph & Yek Koo L’interieur De La Vue c30 cassette $5.99 Obsolete Units "A studious and strange meeting of two renowned minds of experimental sound, L’interieur De La Vue is a thrillingly unforeseen detour into minimalistic spontaneity from acclaimed and prolific NYC musician Marcia Bassett (Zaimph, Double Leopards, Hototogisu, GHQ) and celebrated Los Angeles cacophonous-psych-explorer Helga Fassonaki (Yek Koo, Metal Rouge). Unlike the constant ethereal burn on Bassett’s guitar/synth drone works or Fassonaki’s overpowering and staggering reinvention of otherworldly experimental rock, the two performances here present a startlingly spacious platform for more patient, contemplative restraints. Bassett’s electronics ebb into harmonious intertwinement with Fassonaki’s deconstructed trumpet inspection, the flow of both these paradoxically serene and scraping tonalities finding a sturdy synergistic ground. Those immersed in the works of Idea Fire Company, Greg Kelley, and AMM should take notice. Edition of 100."
7/11/2008 Zashiki Warashi Fog-Fluid CDR $11.99 Chironex Solo release from Carter Thornton (Enos Slaughter, Izititiz, Pigeons...) - edition of 80 copies.

8/9/2003 Zashiki-Warashi Floor Child double CD $11.99 Conduit Creations "Floor Child is a collection of field recordings, home assemblies and live documentations organized and mutated by New York based composer and improviser Carter Thornton. Spanning five years and two CDs, this initial release from the fictional collective of Zashiki-Warashi is sewn together with appearances by members of NNCK, Izititiz, Enos Slaughter, Floriculture and TEST. The music shrieks, drones, floats, superimposes unlikely realities and outlines a subconscious narrative inspired by travels ranging from a
South Carolina swamp to a Moroccan graveyard. A mix of shortwave transmissions, ukuleles, bowed and plucked strings, distant drums and voices, nearby birds and guitars, chanting crowds and not quite discernable sounds recorded in places as diverse as a Texas parking lot, Harlem’s Hinthouse, Roulette
Intermedium and a Virginia old folks home. Presented in hand painted sleeves." Limited to 502 copies.
4/22/2009 Zashiki-Warashi Mail Wars!

12/22/2014 Zeitkratzer / Whitehouse Whitehouse: Performed Live by Zeitkratzer CD $16.99 Zeitkratzer "William Bennett, the musical mastermind of the band Whitehouse has already worked with Zeitkratzer on several occasions. And he also appears on the first track of this CD. Recorded live at the festival Musique Action in Nancy, France, you can get an impression of how the deep bass frequencies -- produced by the huge orchestra drum, at some points as well by the beaten bass strings of the piano or by subtones of the horns -- would vibrate the floor of the venue. At the same time high piping sounds, amplified violin harmonics, and bitten clarinet tones attack the listener. A music with crystal-clear or even neurosurgical precision. And one can hear voices all over -- distorted from being spoken through a trombone or a French horn -- phantom voices in the density of the sounds, etc. No electronic effects are used -- it's pure acoustic power! Press on the first collaboration with Whitehouse: Vital Weekly: "Excellent work. A total racket." The Wire even became addicted: "You squirm in your seat, unsure of why you're listening, yet still you hang on for more." While Radio France was just blown away: "La fureur et la chaleur! ...hors norme!" Zeitkratzer: directed by Reinhold Friedl: Frank Gratkowski (clarinets); Hild Sofie Tafjord (French horn); Hilary Jeffery (trombone); Reinhold Friedl (piano); Tony Buck (percussion); Lisa Marie Landgraf (violin); Burkhard Schlothauer (violin); Anton Lukoszevieze (violoncello); Uli Phillipp (double bass); William Bennett (voice, [01])."

7/10/2008 Zodiac Mountain Butte des Morte CDR $9.99 Skulls of Heaven "Joined by the Reverend Karen Eliot, Zodiac Speedcreep and his crew take to the unlikely task of covering songs by Kendra Smith and Brainbombs...

4/22/2009 Zola Jesus Tsar Bomba LP $13.99 Troubleman Unlimited "On Zola Jesus' EP Tsar Bomba, the local project's bleak pop sensibility stays afloat on a lake polluted with white noise, dirty industrial rhythms, and hissing synthesizers. The spooky vibrato of Madison vocalist Nika Danilova effectively throws the dreamy hooks of Ronnie Spector down an empty well. In live sets, Dead Luke's sonically haunting synthesizers crawl over the minimalist rhythm section of bassist Lindsay Mikkola and tom-tom player Max Elliot to provide an adequate backdrop for Danilova's heaving vibrato and sinister shrieking." - Madison Decider. Edition of 500 copies on black vinyl.
9/16/2007 Zombi Zombi LP $19.99 Wabana "Producing work that is epic in concept, sound, and artistic approach, Steve Moore and A.E. Paterra, the masterminds and multi-instrumentalists behind Zombi, have re-imagined the architecture of progressive rock and dynamic instrumentals, carving a niche in underground music distinctly their own. The band's signature sound, achieved using only electric bass, drums, and a collection of analog synthesizers, is deceptively lush considering its two man skeleton crew ensemble. Moore's bass playing and meticulous synthesizer programming interacts seamlessly with Paterra's controlled, precision drumming, as if each man is anticipating his counterpart's next move. 'Zombi' and 'Twilight Sentinel' were ZOMBI's first two recordings as a band. This Wabana re-issue of both as individual LPs is the first time either have been available on vinyl. Both titles were self released as CDR only, in super limited numbers. In 2004, ZOMBI were signed to Relapse Records and in a few short months the epic 'Cosmos' was released to much acclaim. In 2005 the band compiled 'Zombi' and 'Twilight Sentinel' onto one CD called 'Anthology', also self released in an edition of 1000 copies. After a short time, this too sold out and these recordings have been unavailable ever since. These vinyl versions sound vibrant and warm, and were remastered. These recordings reveal the early history of Zombi and fans of the band already familiar with their music who haven't heard them will get a better idea of where the duo came from and where they were going as they wrote "Cosmos". Each LP is limited to 1000 copies. "Zombi" contains a semi-bonus track, 'Sequence 9', which appeared on the original release, but they left off of the recent release of "The Anthology"."
2/9/2013 Zombie Rave First Flesh 12" $14.99 Living Tapes "The Zombie Rave mixes started appearing on Youtube a few years ago with instant fandom, hype and mystery attached. Druggy Chopped and Screwed editing of Cult films focusing mostly on European horror, the creator of these videos played with 90's rave music by giving them the self-described ''Zombie Rave'' treatment of slowing them down, enhancing the beats and coating with ominous melodies. The result is a dark dreamlike Rave mix that makes your body move with the weight of a dance floor full of water. But who was making this music? who was the culprit? it remains a mystery to this day. Who Ha Ha…" Mater Suspiria Vision perhaps? Yes!
7/5/2011 Zonal Taste Wand The Beast c34 cassette $6.99 Rocket Machine Tapes "Dark, low-end dirges from Manly's finest, Ben Lynch, who previously recorded as Tonal Wasteland. Recorded in real time using an Akai GXC-730D and a Denon DR-M33HX onto Cobalt Type II cassette. Edition of 50."

11/17/2007 Zuydervelt, Rutger (Machinefabriek) / Mariska Baars (soccer Committee) / Wouter Van Veldhoven Zeeg CD $12.99 Digitalis "Zeeg" represents the best that the Dutch underground has to offer. Combining the talents of Rutger Zuydervelt, Mariska Baars, and Wouter Van Veldhoven, this album shows off what can happen when the stars align. This is stunning in its scope and breadth. It's a sonic magic trick. Most enchanting is how "Zeeg" manages to slow time to a near stand-still. The sounds and motifs unfold like a snail trapped in tar; each note, each sound seemingly more important than the previous. The depth of sound is considerable, and the impact is immense. While the performers know exactly where they plan to take you, the listener remains shrouded in mystery. It's all about the journey and this is a deliciously delicate place to get lost in. The care with which "Zeeg" was improvised and created is obvious. But how, exactly, these three stalwarts manage to pull the listener down this diamond rabbit hole where stellar time is meaningless is a riddle. Through Van Veldhoven's use of tape recorders and metallophone to Baars' lovely voice that is endlessly manipulated and looped by Zuydervelt, everything clicks. Add in Zuydervelt and Baars guitar work and you have an exquisite combination. "Zeeg" is simple. It is minimal. And it is pure beauty. If you cannot disappear here, then you aren't truly living Packaged in silkscreened cardboard jackets with original art by Mariska."
