PESSIMIST Balaklava 12"
Pessimist presents Balaklava. "Balaklava" is the dark blue space where icy drum'n'bass minimalism and sub-aquatic dub-techno meet. Stripped, shadow-boxer drums, swooping drones and earth-shaking subs, with a thin layer of crackle and mas-terful use of silence. On the flip, the dense, dungeon rollage of "Orphic", an effortless bridging of torques and tempos that builds on the radical groundwork of Regis or Felix K. The Bristol-based producer and UVB-76 co-founder has truly excelled himself here, demonstrating both a subtlety and a ruthlessness that sets him apart from his peers.

INSTANT AUTOMATONS, THE Sincerely Making A Noise LP
Instant Automatons were leading figures in the largely cassette-based U.K. Bad Music scene (a British DIY movement whose adherents made their music available on cassette, for free) of the late '70s. Between 1977 and 1982, using a bedroom full of homemade gear plus some conventional instrumentation, core members Protag (later of Alternative TV, Blyth Power and Zounds) and Mark Lancaster ("somewhere between Cooper Clarke and Mark E. Smith") forged a warped hybrid of traditional song craft and lo-fi primitive post punk. Although cassettes were the band's native medium, they also appeared on several vinyl releases, including their own EP and various compilations featuring similar weirdos. For fans of the Messthetics compilations (Hyped to Death released the Another Wasted Sunday Afternoon compilation CD), Urinals, Homosexuals. Curated by Lancaster, Sincerely Making A Noise dusts off curiosities from the Instant Automatons archives (Peter Paints His Fence EP, Angst In My Pants EP, No Platform For Heels LP, Love Not Devotion LP, Tape Transport cassette). Co-released by Beat Generation and B.F.E. Records. First time ever that most of the songs appear on a vinyl release. Compilation from lost cassette releases. 180 gram vinyl. Edition of 300.

VA Michigan Nuggets 2LP
Limited repress. For vinyl collectors of artifacts from 1960s Michigan, the holy grail is Michigan Nuggets, an impressive double LP set released on the Belvedere label. The 31 cuts include many of the biggest Detroit-area garage band local hits of the '60s including those by the Woolies, the Rationals, the Unrelated Segments, the Shy Guys, the Human Beings, Tim Tam & the Turn-Ons, the Wanted, the Underdogs, and the Tidal Waves. It also has seven rare Bob Seger recordings from the Hideout label including "Persecution Smith," "Chain Smokin," and "East Side Story." In addition to all these treasures, the double album features four early MC5 titles, and the hard-to-find Amboy Dukes single "You Talk Sunshine, I Breathe Fire." For laughs, you even get an audio curio called "An Important Message" featuring Dr. Jack van Impe railing against the evils of rock and roll! This is one of the very best garage-oriented compilations of the era, and a pretty diverse one. The sound is excellent, as are the liner notes in a beautiful gatefold sleeve. Edition of 500. Also includes tracks by Terry Knight & The Pack, ? & The Mysterians, Southbound Freeway, and Ormandy.

PAUL & THE TALL TREES Once In A While/The Little Bit Of Sunshine 7"
"Big Crown Records is proud to present the debut single from Paul & The Tall Trees, 'Once In A While' b/w 'The Little Bit Of Sunshine'. Hailing from Staten Island, Paul Schalda's music seems to embody the unexpected overlap of The Band's Americana, Ian MacKaye's unhinged emotion, and the doo-wop melodies his father, Bill Schalda Sr. (a member of Brooklyn vocal group, The Montereys), raised him on. The first single from his forthcoming full length, produced by Tommy Brenneck, 'Once In A While' is a testament to Paul's sincere and raw emotional song writing. Running the gamut of the forever changing conviction of a man in love, Paul goes from never again to maybe pleading for mercy on his soul. Musically going from a mellow strut to a frantic crescendo carrying the lyrics along for the ups and downs of addiction."

SOUL EXPLOSIVES Tryin' To Get Down/Ain't No Sunshine 7"
"Big Crown Records is proud to present a reissue of the highly sought-after, very rare, and only release by Texas funk band, The Soul Explosives. Active in 1971 and 72, The Soul Explosives were a high school group from Kingsville, TX led by high school senior Skip Frazier. Their main goal was to play a neighborhood known as the 'The Cut' in nearby Corpus Christi, where there were a number of Soul & R&B clubs. They paid for the recording and pressing of the 45 which was done by a tiny local Tejano studio/label, Bormeh. Copies of the record were given to friends and sold at shows. In '72 Skip decided to leave the group to pursue his college studies and they disbanded not long after. The A Side 'Tryin To Get Down' is a lo-fi funk gem with all the makings of an underground classic. Driving drums and blown out vocals somewhere between encouraging and liberating are sure to peak funk fans ears. The B Side, an absolutely smashing cover of 'Ain't No Sunshine', is nothing short of a must have. The Soul Explosives nearly instrumental cover might just be the toughest version on a 45. Another Big Crown sureshot."

PAN SONIC Atomin Paluu CD
Atomin Paluu features the final studio recordings made under the name Pan Sonic (Mika Vainio & Ilpo Vaisanen). Recorded per their usual working methods at Mika's home studio in Berlin from 2005 to 2011 and subsequently edited into this album format by Mika in 2015. The film, Atomin Paluu (2015) is a Finnish production, created by Jussi Eerola and Mika Taanila, documents the building of the first nuclear power plant since the Chernobyl meltdown in 1986 - a project that fell foul of much bureaucratic wrangling and control which manifested itself in the need for over forty cuts of the film. Atomin Paluu, the soundtrack, shows Pan Sonic uniquely using selected third-party field recordings from filming at the building site. As the film's soundtrack, these recordings were also bound up in a complex series of delays in the release of the film. The pre-release screenings of the film it won the highly coveted 2015 Nordic Dox Award at the world renowned CPH:DOX festival in Copenhagen. The soundtrack itself brought the greatest recognition and went on to win Best Soundtrack at the Jussi Awards Festival (known as the Finland's Oscars).

Two percussionists, Sven Kacirek and Thomas Klein present Rhythmus I-IV. Although the two musicians each speak their own distinct rhythmic language, with only a few data transfers between Hamburg and Düsseldorf they have conjured up four compact tracks, which despite the instrumental limitations, are surprisingly diverse in terms of sound, groove and depth. Each sent the other a sketch for further development and expanded upon these blueprints. In a final meeting, formal decisions and minimal corrections were made. In addition to drums, cymbals, shakers, xylophone and vibraphone sounds, sonic treatments are clearly audible.

OVERTONE ENSEMBLE Longitudes Cassette
Longitudes is a live recording of the Overtone Ensemble performing live at the Liquid Architecture Festival. Edition of 100. Tim Catlin formed the Overtone Ensemble in 2012 in order to perform works using his self-made "Vibrissa" instruments. Each instrument consists of twelve vertically mounted aluminum rods that are longitudinally stroked by hand to produce ethereal "singing" tones. The long sustaining nature of the rods sound and microtonal tunings allow players a sonic palette of complex textures and harmonic complexity. Other instruments used include massed hand-bells, quarter-tone bells, e-bowed acoustic guitars, re-tuned glockenspiels, wineglasses and long wire instruments. The ensemble's compositions utilize acoustic phenomena arising from microtonal tuning such as phasing, combination tones and sympathetic vibrations, as well the effects of room resonance. All sounds are acoustic in origin without effects or sound processing. The results are works of shimmering intensity and pulsating beauty. Recorded by Byron Scullin.

"Master Jack" is a classy and deadly effective cut that gets its strength from a simple, yet biting stack of funky chords, while pulsating bass lines and rattling hats are holding it together. The faster "Magnet" is a no-nonsense, minimalist stomper you can store in your peak-time section.

DUBBLESTANDART Dub Realistic LP+CD
LP version. Includes CD. Dubblestandart present Dub Realistic. Of course, Dubblestandart have been keeping a version of the dub flame alive for the last two decades, their formation coinciding with the phase in which Jamaican dub was on the way out. Formed in 1988 as a reaction to the stagnant Austrian pop scene, the group was heavily inspired by the Black Ark, On-U Sound and Jah Shaka, infusing such dub influences within their heady blend of hardcore reggae and new wave, which soon brought them into the European public's consciousness. Soon, they were so in demand as to be backing Lee Scratch Perry on the Austrian stage, followed by stints with dub poet Lilian Allen and ace toaster, Dillinger. At present, they have already issued over ten albums, collaborating with Ken Boothe, Sly & Robbie, Mad Professor, Marcia Griffiths, Chezere, Caron Wheeler (Soul II Soul) all the while working new technological dimensions into their sound, and although they have undertaken a dub tour of the US west coast, Canada, India and Russia. Dubblestandart's cavernous excursion into deep dub, chilling dub and dubble-tough dub are willed into perfection with Dub Realistic. Dubblestandart's handling of this mission has been exemplary: the productions are pleasingly individualistic, retaining plenty of originality and professionalism without seeming stoic, dull or contrived. Opening Dub Realistic with a slowed down adaption of Massive Attack's massive hit "Safe From Harm" presents Amanda Bauman going deeper, followed by a journey into the Middle East ("Arab Dub") & further examples of how we, as musicians, digest the world around us ("Earthshaker"). Populistic tendencies at home ("Welcome To Europe") or "effects" of the refugee crisis ("The Boat Stops") triggering questions: What is the role of us as artists ("Not Controlled by the Artist") and how do we contribute in a positive way? From Kingston/Jamaica, reggae & soul singer Tanice Morris appears on "Let It Flow" and "Dub version" and from Cairo/Egypt, Aisha E dubs on Bob Marley's "Sun Is Shining."

VA Sky Girl CD
Sky Girl is a mysteriously unshakeable companion, a deeply melancholic and sentimental journey through folk-pop, new wave and art music micro presses that span 1961-1991. It's a DIY collection of different genres, from different countries across different decades, that are all bound by the same longing sentiment. A concept compilation! A seemingly disparate suite of selections of forgotten fables by more or less never-knowns, Sky Girl forms a beautifully coherent and utterly sublime whole deftly compiled by French collectors DJ Sundae and Julien Dechery. From Scott Seskind's adolescent musical road movie to Karen Marks' icy Oz-wave, the charming DIY storytelling of Italian-American go-getter Joe Tossini and the ethereal slow dance themes of Parisian artists Nini Raviolette and Hugo Weris, Sky Girl resonates on a wide spectrum historically, geographically and stylistically. It unites in a singular, longing, almost intangible ambience. If the names sound wholly unfamiliar that doesn't matter, the nature of the compositions swiftly nurtures an intimacy with these lonely, poignant, openhearted wanderers. Most were available in a very limited capacity at the time of their release, some were never really released at all - Gary Davenport declined to release "Sarra" after he split with the girl for whom the track is named - years later a friend convinced Davenport to allow him to put 100 copies online to sell and DJ Sundae was quick enough to snare one. Beyond their scarcity, these tracks are bound together by a certain raw beauty that's achievable when music is made and no one is listening. Sky Girl comprises of fifteen officially licensed songs, a two year international scavenger hunt through long-folded home label operations, the depths of internet forums and traceless acetates. Both compilers are well trained record sleuths - DJ Sundae's labels Hollie and Idle Press have reissued Arthur Russell affiliate Nirosta Steel and DIY relic Pitch, while Julien Dechery previously compiled Fire Star, a retrospective on Tamil film composer Ilaiyaraaja, for Bombay Connection. Released by popular NTS show "Noise In My Head" offshoot Efficient Space, Sky Girl is enriched with artwork from Perks and Mini mutant Misha Hollenbach and appropriately elegant sleeve notes courtesy of Ivan Smagghe. Includes digital download. Also features: Linda Smith, Bruce Langhorne, The Seraphims, Some of My Best Friends Are Canadians, The Rising Storm, Warfield Spillers, Joyce Heath, Angel, Nora Guthrie and Once.

These beautiful, hazy recordings, which took place among the charming artistic 1970s Paris scene, offer a unique chance to sit in on the original jamming sessions of tracks that later became Brazilian cult classics.

WEISMAN, CHRIS Play Sharp to Me LP
"Tired of being pegged as 'the Beatle of Brat,' Chris Weisman has changed gears without shifting his focus, creating a masterpiece of multi-origin pop in the process. Lyrically, the tunes on Play Sharp to Me (title nicked from James Joyce), retain their New England underground tang, rolling localisms like barrels of sweet maple syrup between the trees of heavily forested hillocks. But the sonics utilize various swathes of strange sunshine to create a unique tapestry. We've encountered Chris using late '60s Beach Boys textures before, but on Play Sharp he adds something that's weirdly jazzy and lazy, as though that first Ben Sidran album on Capitol was an ode to surrealist parlor games or something. But what's so cool about the sound of the record is that Chris hints that he's familiar with every obscure pop genius, from Emitt Rhodes to Scott Miller to Pip Proud, without ever doing anything specific. It's more that he creates an aura in which you begin to assume he knows it all, because his grasp of elements is so absolute. This is what... the ninth album Feeding Tube Records has done with Chris? Something like that. And each one has been brilliant and idiosyncratic and unique. Play Sharp is no different. And completely different at the same time. Another miracle of creation. What are you waiting for?" -- Byron Coley, 2016.

PBR STREETGANG 12.32 12"
Bonar Bradberry and Tom Thorpe, AKA PBR Streetgang, return with a gutsy, big-room floor filler in 12.32. Clocking in at over the 12-minute mark, PBR are given the space to really work the elements, which result in a magnificent production that will really work some dancefloors. On the remix, London based producer, Fort Romeau, works his magic. Keeping the pace and mood pumping, and remodeling the melody riff, Fort Romeau takes the listener on a deeper, more cosmically energized trip, soaking the synths in reverb and cranking up a touch of distortion to keep things raw and vital.

COLLINS, LYN Think (About It) LP
"Bundled With A 22 x 22" Poster Of The Cover Art. James Brown had several incredibly talented; funky divas' in his late '60s and early '70s stable, including Vicki Anderson and Marva Whitney. But as great as those two powerhouse singers were, Lyn Collins was the strongest hit maker of that funky JB era. Her strong voice and commanding stage presence - which earned her the nicknames 'The Female Preacher' and 'Mama Feelgood' - quickly proved to be a potent addition to the People Records universe. In the spring of 1972 her second single, the driving and ridiculously funky Think (About It) hit the R&B music world like a ton of bricks. As fans young and old know, thanks to its timeless, relentless groove and powerful vocals, Think gained a powerful second life in the 1980s thanks to the hip-hop generation, fueling the platinum smash 'It Takes Two' by Rob Base & DJ E-Z Rock in 1988 and additionally sampled by dozens of hip-hop and dance music artists up to the present day. But Collins was far from a One Hit Wonder: she was as vocally adept on ballads as she was with full-blown funk. She proves this throughout her debut album, which was released in 1972 on James Brown's new People Records label - the imprint's second full-length release. To wit, aside from the title smash: a powerful and emotional cover of Bill Withers' 'Ain't No Sunshine'; the socially progressive 'Women's Lib'; the Gamble & Huff-penned 'Never Gonna Give You Up' (originally done by Jerry Butler); and even a daring, muscular take on the song 'Fly Me To The Moon', made famous by, among others, Frank Sinatra. All throughout Think (About It), Collins shows that she was a vocal force to be reckoned with. Backed by a James Brown-assembled musical crew that included Pee Wee Ellis, Fred Wesley and, of course, James Brown himself, the platter was bound to impress and succeed. And that it did."

COLLINS, LYN We Want To Parrty, Parrty, Parrty/You Can't Beat Two People In Love 7"
"People Records was the revered funk/soul imprint of the legendary James Brown, who throughout the 1970s curated and made it home to an array of top-tier deep funk artists, singers, and songwriters. It was during this time that the label hosted a variety of 'funky divas' like Marva Whitney, Vicki Anderson, and Myra Barnes. Unquestionably the greatest of them all was Lyn Collins, whose R&B hit, the frequently-sampled 'Think (About It)' is one of the most enduring singles to emerge from Brown's People label. Get On Down now presents here, an unearthed gem from the famed 'Female Preacher'. 'We Want To Parrty, Parrty, Parrty' was previously unavailable on any Lyn Collins full-length release, and has never been reissued as a standalone 7 inch single until now. The track is a rollicking funk burner, produced by James Brown himself, and has sampled its way into tracks by Eric B. & Rakim, The Prodigy, De La Soul, and Big Daddy Kane among others, and comes on a large hole 45 with freshly re-mastered audio. 'You Can't Beat Two People In Love', the funky soul-ballad B-side, is not to be missed either, featuring additional backing vocals by Brown."

The fantastic original, "Only Time Remains", finds the artist in a melodic mood, with his seductive, rolling beats all overlaid with churchy chords and a grand atmosphere.

GARBAGE & THE FLOWERS, THE The Deep Niche CD
"If you were a certain type of music fan in the mid-'90s, you may have heard tell of an incredible, incredibly hard-to-find double-album by The Garbage & The Flowers, Eyes Rind As If Beggars. Each jacket was hand-painted, and all 300 copies sold out in a flash. Thankfully, the great Bo'Weavil label reissued it in 2013. If you haven't heard it, please do listen? OK, you heard it now? You're welcome! The group was Helen Johnstone, Yuri Frusin and Paul Yates - an inspired trio who emphasized lyrical collaboration and sound manipulation as part and parcel to their melodies. They didn't last long as a group, but luckily, they got a lot of their songs recorded. The Deep Niche is music they made before Eyes Rind and it is every bit as revelatory. Johnstone sings over raucous and raw instrumentation. It's real rock, the real real thing. Torben Tilly joined just in time to contribute some keyboard to the track "29 Years," although he mostly was their guitarist. Just in time, too, because The Deep Niche presents a band fresh to playing with some massive tools - The Tools Of Rock, natch. These songs are every bit as powerful as what you hear on Eyes Rind As If Beggars. Believe it."

When faced with the decision to take a different direction at the risk of getting lost in a synthetic sound or to further explore the same musical path, Vaudou Game, a tight-knit group with a solid groove, did not need to consult the oracle for very long.

Vintage material, instruments produced in the '70s and cassette tapes were the "grigris" (or lucky charms) which proved most effective to ward off digital corruption.

OVERTONE ENSEMBLE Overtone Ensemble CD
Tim Catlin formed the Overtone Ensemble in 2012 in order to perform works using his self-made "vibrissa" instruments. Each instrument consists of 12 vertically mounted aluminum rods that are longitudinally stroked by hand to produce ethereal singing tones. The long sustaining nature of the rods' sound and microtonal tunings allow players a sonic palette of complex textures and harmonic complexity. Other instruments used include massed hand-bells, quarter-tone bells, EBowed acoustic guitars, re-tuned glockenspiels, wine glasses, and long wire instruments. The ensemble's compositions use acoustic phenomena arising from microtonal tuning such as phasing, combination tones, and sympathetic vibrations, as well the effects of room resonance. All sounds are acoustic in origin without effects or sound processing. The results are works of shimmering intensity and pulsating beauty. The Overtone Ensemble consists of Tim Catlin, Atticus Bastow, Philip Brophy, and David Brown. Since forming in 2012 the group has been well-received at festivals such as Slow Music, NOW now, Sound Out, Light in Winter, and Liquid Architecture as well as various galleries and clubs within Australia. Group members have a long history of involvement in experimental music, sound art, and improvised music both within Australia and internationally.

XENAKIS, IANNIS La Legende d'Eer LP
The second release in the Perihel series is one of the most famous electroacoustic compositions by Iannis Xenakis. When Iannis Xenakis (1922-2001), who had fought against the occupation as part of the communist resistance, moved to Paris in 1947 it was the start of a highly creative and impressive career. Xenakis not only studied composition with Olivier Messiaen and became one of the most innovative composers of the 20th century, he also worked as assistant to Le Corbusier and realized a.o. the Philips Pavilion for the World Exhibition in Brussels, 1958. His compositions often are based on mathematical principles (in 1966 he founded the CEMAMu - Centre d'Etudes de Mathématique et Automatique Musicales), which give his music an unprecedented aesthetic and as The Guardian would say, a "shocking otherness". The most famous works of Xenakis, who won the Polar Music Prize (considered the unofficial Nobel Prize for music) in 1999, are his compositions for orchestra Metastasis, Pithoprakta and Terretektorh (where the 88 musicians are spread within the audience) and the electroacoustic compositions Persepolis, Concret PH, Bohor and La Légende d'Eer where Xenakis integrated his stochastic synthesis sounds for the first time. As legendary as this piece is, there is an impenetrable thicket of versions and stories around La Légende d'Eer, it exists in different releases, with wrong sample rates or digitized backwards. This version uses the 8-track-version that Xenakis himself presented at Darmstädter Ferienkurse in August of 1978. As the automatic spatialization is lost, this became the only original version of this composition and is presented here (mixed down to stereo by Martin Wurmnest who tried to preserve the spatial movements as perceptible as possible. La Légende d'Eer not only became a milestone of electroacoustic music but is also an important reference for noise and industrial musicians up to the present day. Mixed by Martin Wurmnest, mastered & cut by Rashad Becker, La Légende d'Eer is available here as 180 gram vinyl. Includes download code. Includes insert with liner notes by Reinhold Friedl.

BISCHOFF, JHEREK Cistern CD
"Cistern is the second album by prodigiously talented multi-instrumentalist and composer Jherek Bischoff. Gloriously cinematic, these modern orchestral recordings pull at the heartstrings. It comes hot on the heels of Strung Out In Heaven, a moving string quartet tribute to David Bowie, conceived with Amanda Palmer and featuring the significant talents of Anna Calvi, John Cameron Mitchell and Neil Gaiman. A prolific and divergent collaborator, working with the likes of David Byrne, The Kronos Quartet, Caetano Veloso, Xiu Xiu and Australian star Missy Higgins, the real Bischoff can be difficult to pin down, but Cistern is an intensely personal work. It is intrinsically linked to the space in which it was conceived, born from time spent improvising in an empty, two-million-gallon underground water tank. The environs forced Bischoff to slow down, to reflect, to draw on his childhood growing up on a sailing boat?an unexpected journey of rediscovery, from the city back to the Pacific Ocean via the cistern."

STANISZEWSKI, JACEK Zawstydzajacy Dar CD
"Long, long ago, when there was no Polish bus to Warsaw, when the Internet counted on pulses and cost a fortune, and each telephone bill in my house was punishable by a prison dinner and having to kneel in the corner on a packet of frozen peas, music was for me the most important significance in the world. I cannot remember how I came across terra.pl, where music and personal polemics never ended, and the wellspring of artistic inspiration and news beat a strong and constant stream. It was then that I came across this guy, whose erudition, humor and mind, sharp as a razor, cut adversaries with little anesthetic. This was Jacek Staniszewski, a mysterious figure, and thoroughly fascinating. I also found that Jacek founded the absolutely cult Neurobot (you won't be able to associate this name, because at that time were probably listening to Laibach or Nirvana) and he also worked as Facial Index. From the perspective of the 'eighteen, clumsy and shy' environment, AltF4, or the 'Warsaw laptop scene', this was totally hermetic and elitist, plus there was nothing there my friends would also appreciate, but the memories of those gigs where even my ankles shook due to associations with music and experiments which until this point could only be read in Machina or Bruma remain alive in me. However, I do realize that such affiliation has its own rules and can draw memories more vividly than it should. Anyway, Jacek is back in a big way, if not more, because this is his own personal work and is probably not suitable for any one of the contemporary Polish scenes. There is the same electronic goodness, without fatigued nodules or summary fashion, but his adjusting of bass and treble controls is in itself a revealing recommendation. The front cover of this CD was prepared by the modest, but devilishly talented Alexandra Waliszewska, darling of not only the southern part of Poland, but respected very much by the likes of Andrew Liles and David Tibet." - Iwona Palka

ASH RA TEMPEL Le Berceau de Cristal CD
"In 1975 I was doing a series of concerts in France with Lutz Ulbrich, where we were presenting 'Inventions for Electric Guitar' and other compositions, which we developed together that year. In August, we were invited for two concerts in the South of France, one in the wonderful Roman theater in Arles, the other at the Festival Palace in Cannes. This is where we met the musicians of the German band CAN and the singer Nico, who also played at the festival. After the concerts we stayed together a few days in the beautiful city of Arles. Nico's friend, the French director Philippe Garrel, was working at that time on a film starring Nico, Anita Pallenberg and Dominique Sanda and was looking for music to make you dream. I always recorded most of our concerts, that's how we were able to offer him the piece that we had performed as 'encore' in Cannes. It became the main theme of the film. Other parts were recorded during several sessions throughout 1975 in my studio in Berlin. Instruments and electronic devices were relatively simple compared to today's technology: four-track tape recorder, an old Farfisa organ, the beautiful EKO Rhythm Computer (Italian machines controlled by punched cards), the EMS superb guitar-Synthi HiFli and, of course, our 'usual' guitars. All this combined with the patching, the filtering and echo has produced its own unique sound to 'electronic dreams' of the 70s." --Manuel Göttsching, 1993Recorded in 1975 at Studio Roma, Berlin, with the exception of "Le Berceau de Cristal," recorded in concert on August 7, 1975, at Palais des Festivals et des Congrès in Cannes, France. Mixed and produced by Manuel Göttsching.

MOLECULE 60° 43' Nord (Deluxe Edition) 2LP+CD
Deluxe edition. Double translucent LP version. Gatefold sleeve. Includes CD. Mille Feuilles present a deluxe edition of Molecule's album, 60° 43' Nord. Some associate the sounds of waves to heat and relaxation. Others visualize the sea as a wide playground from which they can pick up the echoes to turn them into a deep sound. For 60° 43' Nord, Molecule decided to record the wild voices of the Atlantic Ocean aboard a 90 meters long fishing boat. The result is made of powerful and danceable techno beats ("8 ZL 40"), tracks that will take you directly to the Atlantic's depths ("Abysses"), and harmonious moments of time off ("Le Jardin" or Soleil Bleu"). 60° 43' Nord is captivating and flows. Features the full album on CD 1 and a live version on CD 2. Comes in digi-sleeve, with a 16-page booklet.

Recorded live in the town hall of New York City on May 15, 1958, this historic concert (organized by Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg) was a retrospective of Cage's work from 1934 to 1958. Here Cage's interest in technology, Eastern philosophies, and the concept of "silence" and "chance" as related to composition come to the fore as Cage performs some of the most significant and controversial pieces of his career, several of which ("Six Short Inventions for Seven Instruments," "She Is Asleep," "Music for Carillon," and "Concerto for Piano and Orchestra") were performed here for the first time ever.

HURTADO & ALAN VEGA, MARC Sniper CD
A collision between Suicide's legendary Alan Vega and Marc Hurtado, sonic warrior from Étant Donnés, featuring Lydia Lunch on "Prison Sacrifice." Originally released as a limited LP in 2010; reissued here with one bonus track. Marc Hurtado met Alan Vega at the end of the '80s, and they first worked together in 1999 on four tracks of Re-Up by Étant Donnés (the band formed in 1977 by Marc Hurtado and his brother Eric). They played several shows together in Europe, and in 2009 Marc Hurtado made a film about the visual work of Alan Vega. In 2016 Marc Hurtado finished a feature film about Suicide, the duo of Alan Vega and Martin Rev. Recorded in France (Marc Hurtado), New York's 6/8 Studios (Alan Vega), and Barcelona (Lydia Lunch), Sniper is a few steps ahead of the satellite network and exceeds the wildest expectations at high volume. Imagine Elvis back from the dead riding a rocket against traffic on the Brooklyn Bridge while hurling cryptic slogans about the Civil War, nuclear radiation, Guantanamo, and Treblinka. Vega is in charge of the utterance, in celestial rock star mode, while Hurtado handles the violent, futuristic electro music.

TURTLE, MICHAL Phantoms Of Dreamland 2LP
Following their release of the Michal Turtle 12" Are You Psychic?/Astral Decoy (MFM 008EP, 2015), Music From Memory present Phantoms Of Dreamland; a compilation of works by the UK musician recorded between 1983-1985. This double LP features tracks drawn from the recording sessions for Turtle's album Music From The Living Room (1983) and also collects material Turtle recorded shortly after that, for an album which would never materialize. With three tracks taken from Music From The Living Room and the rest of the compilation entirely made up of unreleased tracks, Phantoms Of Dreamland draws on an illustrious period for Michal. In 1982, at the age of only 22, Michal Turtle set up a portable four track studio in his family's South London home, over-running his parents' front room with synthesizers, amps and instruments. Here he would create layered and deeply hypnotic tracks that were often built around live jams with musicians he would invite to his home. Although the music can appear to be sample based, all instruments were played live and any voices or sound effects were recorded directly to tape or from tiny cassette loops. Combining electronics with live percussion throughout, Phantoms Of Dreamland reflects a deep sense of musical exploration and creates a uniquely other-worldly musical language of its own.

LEIMER, K. Closed System Potentials LP
"Following the RVNG reissues of A Period Of Review (ranked the #7 reissue of 2014 by The Wire) and Artificial Dance (ranked the #2 reissue of 2015 by The Wire), Closed System Potentials, recorded in 1979 and originally released in 1980, finds its way back to vinyl in a completely remastered and expanded edition. The LP includes two previously unreleased tracks, and the download card includes an additional two unreleased tracks, all taken from the original Closed System Potentials sessions. In their review of A Period of Review, Pitchfork said, 'These pieces most closely evoke the work of Roedelius and Moebius in Cluster: meditative, wistful, lovely, giving off gentle glimmers of light. In trying to think if the closest American corollary for this set, the possibility emerges that Kerry Leimer is one of the lone examples of American kosmische music, that elegant hybrid that falls somewhere between the Velvets-style mesmerism of Can in the early '70s and the placid tones of new age music that arose in the next decade. It's a sound that applies to mid-'70s Cluster, Ash Ra Tempel, Popul Vuh, the second side of Kraftwerk's Autobahn, and others.' K. Leimer founded the Palace of Lights label in 1979. Leimer's early work was reissued by Autumn and RVNG in 2014 and 2015, and his early cassette work is in the critically acclaimed Vinyl On Demand box set American Cassette Culture. He has been actively producing music since the mid 1970s - his current catalog includes 16 still-in-print albums plus two collaborative albums with Marc Barreca."

BARRECA, MARC Twilight LP
"Marc Barreca has been creating and performing electronic music since the mid 1970s. Following recent vinyl reissues of Barreca's 1983 cassette Music Works for Industry via the RVNG spin-off Freedom To Spend, and a compilation of early cassette tracks on Vinyl On Demand's acclaimed American Cassette Culture, Palace of Lights has reissued the artist's first album for the label. 1980's Twilight was one of the earliest releases on Palace of Light, and is part of an ongoing program of documenting the roots of the Pacific Northwest independent impulse. This remastered and expanded edition includes one previously unreleased track on the LP and an additional six bonus tracks via the enclosed download card. Twilight struck out in a distinct direction, taking steps into the ambient and industrial while carrying along a phonographic sensibility. Using sounds derived from a variety of acoustic as well as electronic sources, Twilight foreshadowed the diversity and pliability of sampled, industrial and lowercase musics, ensuring the album was remarkably prescient and remains resiliently fresh to this day. Textura (reviewing Tremble) said 'Barreca's lava-like soundworlds are heady constructions whose sounds spill forth in thick clusters and collectively present themselves as heaving conglomerations of shape-shifting sound... a word like organic is less applicable than geologic, given the immense tectonic force with which its material convulses.'"

EXCITEMENTS, THE Breaking The Rule LP
LP version. Do not complain. The legion of Excitements fans does exist in places near and far in this world-gone-insane so if you are ready to be recruited you're in luck. Miraculously, these workaholics of rhythm, who conquered and claimed more than fifteen countries just for the sheer thrill of it during their last tour, found a break and the action of their troubled agenda. It seemed only logical to throw their road sharpened revue into the studio to commit to wax their finest album to date entitled Breaking The Rule. After more than two years on the road and 200 sweat soaked performances since the release of their second album Sometimes Too Much Is Not Enough (2013) (PENN 004CD, PENN 004LP), this third album certifies that the big combo from Barcelona can do whatever they please: either caress you or kick you in the stomach - or both. The steamroller rhythm section is one powerful structure pounding under searing guitars, roaring horns and all reigned over by the voice of Koko that claws at their hypnotic gyrations with wild abandon. This new Excitements bag, as expected, is a satisfier with high voltage rhythm and soul floor shakers and lease breakers-"Everything is Better Since You're Gone", "Fire", "Hold On Together"-ripping spear-hurling R & B - "Chicken Picking" "I'd Rather Feel The Pain", "Did I Let You Down", heartbreaking ballads and mid-tempos - "Breaking The Rule", and "Take It Back" and a pair of rhythmical postcards - a tribute to what once were the noisy streets of New Orleans ("Mojo Train") and restless nights in a Havana boarding house ("Four Loves"). And do not, do not fear, inside this explosive cocktail of sonic chaos, a strange sweet harmony prevails through all and each of the grooves of the record. And as always, all wrapped up, signed, sealed and delivered with the elegantly filthy production of Mike Mariconda.

"The economic prosperity that fueled the Baby Boom generation in the United States didn't exist for Mexican youth, nor was Mexico as racially volatile or sexually repressed. In the 1950's the culture of the United States was far more shook up by Elvis and his gyrating army than was Mexico. 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."

THAT WILL BE LUNCH The Mixtape Of Things CD
The third helping from art-pop prankster Alvin Spetz, the maverick singer-songwriter responsible for two of the most eccentric and original albums of the 2010s. Released under the Full English Breakfast moniker, his self-titled debut and the follow-up, Candy In Weightlessness, earned rave reviews, from broadsheets to blogs. With The Mixtape of Things, Spetz moves on up through the daily nutritional cycle and introduces his That Will Be Lunch alias. The Mixtape of Things is full of songs (some only just scraping past 30 seconds), which evoke children's TV themes one moment and industrial clubs from the future the next. In this unsettling but always playful landscape, one almost half-expects the whimsical paean to the snacks marketing division of British supermarket chain Waitrose when it arrives in the shape of "The Campaign For Plain Nuts." Nestled among all the strangeness is an inspired cover of the Talking Heads classic "One In A Lifetime." Spetz has delved deep into the DNA of this groundbreaking track and extracted what can only be described as "previously unseen footage." Like an inquisitive kid, he takes the engine apart without a hope in hell of ever putting it back together again. Spetz discovered music while studying at the University of Aberdeen in the '80s. Inspired by the fledgling indie sounds of Edwyn Collins, The Fall, Josef K, and The Pop Group, he embarked on a journey that's included nascent recordings with members of The Shamen, ventures into Sufism and the resultant hounding from tabloids, the immolation of everything he's ever recorded, and one gig.

Shadoks Music presents a reissue of Tanks Tracks (1969) by Circulation. Most songs by the band are well-crafted with the right spirit. Not as perfect as some others on Deroy Sound Service, the original label the album was released on, Tanks Tracks is really stoned and trippy with cheesy organ and raw guitars. Circulation was formed by pupils at Bedales School, Petersfield, Hampshire, England in the late 1960s. It was an independent initiative, rather than an official school project, but was encouraged by some of the staff. The group rehearsed in the Bedales music school and performed regularly at school dances in the dining hall. The band composed its own music but also played many of the rock and blues classics of the time. It built up an enthusiastic following within the school but the band wasn't well-known outside of the school. Family and fans signed up in advance for vinyl, fifty of which were pressed by Deroy Sound Service, based in Carnforth, Lancashire. This is a real garage sound like early Velvet Underground. This is real underground...

RAVJUNK Uppsala Stadshotell Brinner LP
Shadoks Music present the first reissue of Uppsala Stadshotell Brinner (1977) from Scandinavia's punk-psych band, Rävjunk. Hailing from Uppsala, these young musicians recorded what is now seen as a rare gem of the '70s. The bands style was quite unique: they were heavily influenced by German krautrock bands but also saw the heavy psych movement as a bright star. Some tracks on Uppsala Stadshotell Brinner are short with heavy and fuzzed-out guitars, other are ten-minute guitar jams. Uppsala Stadshotell Brinner clearly showcase the contemporary trends of the North European underground. The A-side delivers an impressive edifice of very raw punk rock and hard rock, mixed with some bluesy scales and progressive moves. The heavy drone excursions on the flip-side sound much more Teutonic with obvious krautrock allusions. Several influences are evident, but it's all blended into something unique as each member brought their own intriguing ingredients into the music. Guitarist Christer Lindahl was a Hendrix freak and singer Sören G. Andersson was deeply involved in the new punk rock movement. Bassist Lars-Eric was very much into Jack Bruce and Cream, while Peter Ericsson, the drummer, was an avid fan of Can and Guru Guru. Uppsala Stadshotell Brinner is a great '70s Swedish psych album. Edition of 500 (numbered). 180 gram vinyl. Comes in a heavy sleeve and includes a two-page insert.

The album was originally was very limited release on the S.R.T label with a hand-sprayed cover (very much like the original Tony Caro & John). Originals are very rare with fetching high prices on the collectors market. This reissue includes tracks from the rare single "Fat Judy/Gypsy Mountain Woman". Fusion Farm got radio play and played a lot of shows in London and the surrounding cities before heading off to Europe to gig constantly. Germany became a second home, in particular Frankfurt and Munich and they found favor playing at many US Army air bases. Fusion Farm played the 15,000 capacity Frankfurt Festhalle supporting Bad Company and Black Oak Arkansas - this show is infamous because Black Oak Arkansas never showed up and a riot ensued, leaving the venue trashed. The band changed personnel several times but the core of the band and song-writing team of Bob Bett and Normal Ley remained constant. The band split in 1979 to pursue other projects. Rush Job includes snotty, Stooges-like psych tracks, with great guitars, drums, cool vocals and bass. Some tracks are dreamy and some are very powerful British underground tunes. Comes in a heavy sleeve and includes a two-page insert. 180 gram vinyl. Edition of 500 (numbered).

SUICIDE Alan Vega Martin Rev LP
"After crystallizing a reputation for confrontational live performances and releasing their essential debut LP, Suicide went into the studio to record their stunning follow-up. Producer Ric Ocasek lends a pop sensibility to the band's sound, constructing an atmosphere at once light and catchy, yet still crazed and venomous. Originally released in 1980 on ZE Records, Alan Vega Martin Rev features an array of glistening keyboards and early preset rhythm machine sounds whose harsh simplicity suggests the discreet zones and confined movements of urban life. While his vocal treatments are more refined than before, Alan Vega is still cool as ice, visceral and evocative. Superior Viaduct is honored to present Suicide's under-appreciated second album. For the first time since its initial release 35+ years ago, this vinyl release includes the original track list and artwork. If there can be a quintessential New York band, it is without a doubt Suicide."

L. SAE The West End As It Will Be/Line Sunk Like I'm Sunk 12"
L.SAE's debut 12 inch. L.SAE is a new project by Joe Higgins, also known as Metrist, exploring experimental techno-tempo music. He creates a distinctively raw, atmospheric sound palette, referencing material from early drum & bass, noise-techno and '90s IDM. Both tracks are tough as nails, containing thunderous distorted kick drums and clattering percussion but also delicate, mournful synth work.

BATU Monolith EP 12"
Timedance label boss, Batu, returns for his most expansive work to date. The Monolith EP is comprised of three original tracks and a remix from Lee Gamble. Inspired by the relationship between light and dark timbres, the title track takes on a low-slung, hypnotic pace. "Reez" expands on this down-tempo feel, focusing on a more dub-wise aesthetic. "Void" is an infectious, gradually building loop. Strong emotive melodies set the track apart from the artists' usual "heads down" style. Lee Gamble's "Reez" remix deconstructs the propulsive nature of the original track into a hazy fog.

OJPB E-Lane 2 Troy 12"
The story begins at the Heideglühen club in Berlin where the True Romance crew saw OJPB play. In the midst of his set he dropped a mysterious track that completely lit the crowd up, it was "E-Lane 2 Troy". Through the alias of OJPB, French-born Olivier Borzeix delivers raw and adventurous rhythms sourcing his inspirations in rare funk disco nuggets and the golden age of house music, blending it into what he likes to call: Hypnotic Soul. "E-Lane 2 Troy" is an uplifting cosmic mind bender, with brilliant disco loops and an infectious trance inducing melody.

NURSE WITH WOUND Dark Fat 2CD
"...a celebration and documentation of 10 years of NWW shows but to call Dark Fat a live album is far too simplistic. It is an entirely new recording constructed by combining the most interesting moments of the past decade into unique tracks. We have M.S. Waldron to thank as he is archival commandant of the NWW oeuvre and since 2006 has recorded everything and we mean EVERYTHING. He has recorded all the live shows, sound-checks, rehearsals, off-stage events and even covertly recorded the private conversations of the band. These recordings have been studiously and lovingly crafted into a unique sonic tapestry by Waldron and Stapleton with delicate embroidery and filigree added by Liles and Potter. Listen in the Dark and soak up the Fat."

BATAAN, JOE Call My Name LP
"This whole project grew out of a song called 'Cycles Of You', which I had written around 2000-2001 with the guitarist and bassist of my band at the time, Easy. The chord progression and vocal melody really reminded me of Joe Bataan, and it occurred to me that it wouldn't be impossible to get him into the studio to do a guest vocal if we ever recorded it. I had met Bataan a few years before at Nuyorican Poets Cafe in my neighborhood. Around this time Bataan was playing out again, so I went to the show to see him and find out if he'd be interested in doing some vocals with us. He was agreeable, so we decided to turn it into a Joe Bataan session and do 'Cycles Of You'. When I got the opportunity from Vampisoul to do a full album, I was hoping Bataan and I could write some songs together, but our schedules proved tough to coordinate. I figured the best way to go about it was to do most of the work and just have him come sing on it. The rhythm section was a band called TransLove Airways that I formed in 2002. To this core group I added pieces from a few other local bands: The Middle Initials, who are a great Temptations/Main Ingredient-style vocal group, and members of an incredible Latin band called Grupo Latin Vibe, who were responsible for almost all the percussion and the vibraphone solo on 'I'm The Fool Pt. 2'. There was also some fine trombone playing by Aaron Johnson of Antibalas and great flute work by Neal Sugarman and my cousin Sonny. Preparing for Call My Name, I listened to a lot of different records from the mid to late '70s. It has now been over ten years since the completion of this record, and so much has changed. The Call My Name sessions took place when Daptone had just moved to Bushwick, its now-famous current location. Gabe Roth was my first call whenever I had any recording to do. He was yet to become the legendary figure at the center of the Daptone/Truth & Soul universe. He was just a humble guy with an incredible talent and an impeccable ear who made authentic sounding records with inexpensive analog gear." -- Daniel Collás, producer of Call My Name

ROSE, JACK Kensington Blues LP
2016 repress. LP version. "Fourth full-length from Jack, an inspired mix of styles and sounds that brings his in-person mastery down to LP/CD scale. Kensington Blues is Jack's most diverse outing by far, with straight ragtime, heavy 12-string, and that sweet, sweet Weissenborn lap guitar all checking in. Honed during endless touring in 2004, the repertoire here is delivered with maximum authority in a series of first-take performances recorded in early 2005. 'Cathedral et Chartres' and 'Calais to Dover' are dense, brooding 12 string numbers, recalling the key tracks on 2004's Raag Manifestos CD. 'Calais' features a sequence of right hand picking furious enough to evoke a dream state ala Charlemagne Palestine's Strumming Music. 'Rappahanock River Rag' and 'Flirtin' With the Undertaker' are pure syncopated ragtime, while 'Kensington Blues' offers an almost regal take on the intersection of Anglo and American trad. The epic 'Now That I'm A Man Full Grown' was the signature piece of many of 2004's live shows, a display of mind-boggling slide invention that straddles the line of east and west ala 'Yaman Blues' from the Opium Musick LP. In something of a surprise inclusion, Jack's take on Fahey's 'Sunflower River Blues' (long a staple of Pelt and J.R. gigs but never included on a record) is subtle and expressive, with a wonderful rise and fall that perfectly accentuates Fahey's beautiful melody."

DARLING Jacob's Lead 12"
Darling presents Jacob's Lead, a truer reflection of the shadowy producer's previously hidden talents. The title track's restless, hypnotic rhythm tips a wink to classic Dutch techno of old, while the undulating, analog electronics and swirling pads recall the far-sighted retro-futurism of vintage Motor City material. Darling heads towards deeper territory with the bubbling melodies, starburst electronics and saucer-eyed chords of "Video". The interstellar electronics are once more pushed to the fore on closer "80 Axes", where jaunty synth lines combine with soft bongo hits to create an instinctive rhythm, and intergalactic melodies sprint between the speakers.
