Eleh - Hommage To The Pointed Waveforms LP

elehTaiga 2012. "Homage To The Pointed Waveforms" is the final release in a series dedicated to specific sound waves. Following "Homage To The Square Wave" and "Homage To The Sine Wave", "Homage To The Pointed Waveforms" explores composition with triangle and sawtooth waves through studies of a dense modular system. Variations were performed live in Barcelona, Brussels and Madrid during spring 2011 but this LP is the next step.

Side A contains a version of the piece that was conceived for the shows, which evolved during the three performances as it was continually reworked. Mixed with travel memories, the two tracks on side B are reflections on the arrangement.

Hand-numbered edition of 500 direct metal mastered 200g virgin vinyl LPs in custom 2-color letterpress jackets designed by John Brien."

ELG - Mauve Zone LP

elgNashazphone. Since 2004, Èlg (Laurent Gérard) has drawn concentric sound spirals made of musical pipes and entrails. He uses an arsenal of instruments and methods, constantly renewed while building improbable bridges between musique concrete and French song-writing, cartoon-like radiophonic creations and cosmic pop as well as lo-fi Dada-esque experimentation with electronic tentacles. Èlg is half of the electronic botanic duo Opera Mort, and a third of big band trios Orgue Agnes (with the members of Kaumwald) and Reines d'Angleterre (with Jo Tanz and Ghédalia Tazartes). He's had albums released by Kraak, SS-Records, Lexi Disques, Fonal, Hundebiss Records, and Alter, among others.
“I DIG COSMIC MUSIC WITH ROCKS OFF… anathema to top 40, Èlg is the holy ghost of the new sound. his music deals with the altered state with muscle -> primed on transcendence like naked hug, the fire music of his previous duos or the zap force of his earlier Nashazphone jam “Capitaine Present 5,” it feels hip to stay forever eternal in the house of mirrors & emerge on the cyclone. coney island baby bataille. there's a dimensionality of miracles herein, we were born on earth...as humans. Then there's Èlg, Laurent Gérard -> he's a love lodge, a sonic native. this is immersion music… climb upward, go down and deep. my fave cosmic strip here is in cool color… the rare moment on this LP when the guitar solo explodes from the narrative ripping a hole in "song.” through the planet of one voice, we hear the inimitable Dylan Nyoukis and the one and only OG Alan Bishop. these heads are perfect jam vehicles to hang with Laurent. Then there's the paramour lady Catherine Hershey, forever muse…roast tongue. brand new language, brave nu world. this grabs the tusk of Francois Tusques and rides Mother Gong, all glissando and Kobaïan. learned from Shandar and transporting with a freer range Lard Free, organic music that slays all inner city mountains, outer realm gotham. bluer than noon. contempo lone gunman exploratory moderne with the controls set to the heart of love. we're in the "Mauve Zone", where is bananafish? hearing is believing. a transport to future analog and digital dialup. call this dude, he's beyond rap. what a crazy fucking life.” -- Matt "MV" Valentine; Guilford, VT; spring 2016.

Fountainsun - Music Today LP

Gnome Life. FountainsunThe debut album by Fountainsun (Daniel Higgs and Fumie Ishii), 'Music Today', is a bright and expressive blend of percussion, nylon and steel strings, flutes, voices, and a tumult of poetry rumbling out from the very center of The Big Bang, traversing eons of song. What is graceful and intuitive harmonizes with what is meticulous and definitive. Limited to 1.000 copies with a free download code.

Ghedalia Tazartes - Works 1977-1979 4xLP Box + 10"

Vtazartes-1inyl On Demand. "4LP-box with 10" Tazartes' Transports, Tazartes, Diaspora, Une Eclipse Totale De Soleil, and Quelque Part Quelqu'un. The French artist and autodidact Ghedalia Tazartes who is born in Paris in 1947 is a true nomad spending more than 30 years within musical practice and experimentation. Ghedalia is the orchestra and a pop group all in one person: the self is multitude and others, freely connecting the sounds, the rhythms, his voice, his voices. The extra-European music opens the ear to Ghedalia's intra-European exotism. The permanent metamorphosis is a principle of composition; it escapes control, refuses classification, diametrical to the purists of synthetic culture and technocrates of noise. He wanders through music from chant to rhythm, from one voice to another. Utilizing magnetic tape recorders, he paves the way for the electric and the vocal paths, between the muezzin psalmody and the screaming of a rocker. He traces vague landscapes where the mitre of the white clown, the plumes of the sorcerer, the helmet of a cop and Parisian anhydride collide into polyphonic ceremonies. This box concentrates on his early works from 1977-1979 and his four officially released vinyl-LP's plus a 10" of an unreleased work from 1978. All the material is superbly remastered for vinyl by Anders Peterson of ghostsounds.net, pushing the overall quality and dimension in sound to an amazing new level and experience."

Invisible Hands - Teslam LP

Invisible Hands TeslamAbduction. "The Invisible Hands is a transcontinental collaboration between Alvarius B. (Alan Bishop of Sun City Girls) and four stellar young musicians from Cairo, Egypt: Cherif El Masri, Aya Hemeda (both formerly of the popular Egyptian group Eskenderella), Adham Zidan and Magued Nagati. On Teslam, The Invisible Hands expand the already panoramic range of their eponymous debut LP with a haunting set of melodic, impeccably crafted songs whose vintage psych/hard-rock edge conjures up early Alice Cooper almost as often as it recalls Sun City Girls and 20th-century icons like Ennio Morricone and Serge Gainsbourg. The band's exquisite sonic palette is deepened by Cairo-based guest musicians Mohamed Ibrahim, Mohamed 'Moe' Asem, and Sammy Sayed, as well as by longtime SCG compatriot Eyvind Kang. Recorded in Cairo between 2013 and 2014, Teslam represents a further evolution of Alvarius B.'s peerlessly idiosyncratic pop sensibility, which is just as volatile and unclassifiable as his more experimental work. His songwriting -- both on his own, and in partnership with Cherif El Masri -- is marked by a unity of purpose that has compressed countless musical and emotional incongruities into a handful of sharp-edged, pitch-black jewels. A brooding track composed by keyboardist Adham Zidan ('The Great Implosion') perfectly complements the record's uneasy mood. As usual, Alvarius B.'s lyrics comprise an apocalyptic pile-up of cruel metaphors at the intersection of culture, politics and international crime. But they take on new power and new implications as sung by El Masri and Hemeda, whose seductive voices are as inviting as a welcome mat at the gates of hell. Each song stands on its own while also fitting into a planet-sized jigsaw puzzle detailing dark associations and secret narratives that stretch back as far as the foundation of the world. Arguably Alvarius B.'s most accessible work to date, Teslam is a generously baited steel-jaw trap for the unwary listener. Like The Invisible Hands' 2013 debut, Teslam inevitably reflects the precarious political circumstances in which it was conceived and recorded. As such, it's a vivid document not just of an unlikely musical collaboration, but also of a critical moment of hope, defiance, rage and sorrow in one of the world's most venerable cities." --B. Kearney; Comes in a tip-on jacket with lyrics insert and lovely artwork. (09.12.2014)

Johnny Kafta Anti Vegetarian Orchestra - s/t LP

Discrepant. Johnny Kafta"initially a combination of two of lebanon's most active and longest standing groups, jkavo was founded when scrambled eggs (punk-rock band founded in 1998) & "a" trio (free improv trio founded in 2002) joined forces and mixed styles to record "beach party at mirna el-chalouhi" in january 2009, combining each trio's distinctive sound to create something genuinely new, somewhere between punk and krautrock, free jazz and improvisation. though self-released and self-distributed in a very special format on al maslakh sub-label johnny kafta's kids menu, the cd received very positive feedback leading to several concerts in lebanon under the band's new identity. on one occasion the band was joined by seminal american guitarist and composer elliott sharp, and in their european debut, they were augmented by australian drummer tony buck. in august 2012, the band finally recorded their new album, adding a strong element of composition to their usual improvisations, ranging from noisy ambient atmospheres to full energy free rock explosions. the four tracks on this album define the band's new sound: more control that may allow more freedom." (label info) vinyl debut by lebanon's johnny kafta anti vegetarian orchestra featuring members of malayeen, scrambled eggs & a-trio

Louca, Maurice - Benhayyi Al-Baghbaghan LP

Louca, MauriceNawa Recordings, 2014. Maurice Louca ist ein Mann feiner Zwischentöne und einem tiefen Sinn für Musikgeschichte und auch wenn er geografisch in der arabischen Welt verortet ist und dem Schmelztiegel Kairo entstammt, wäre es ein Fehler den Mann der allseits schwappenden Welle von Chaabi und Electro-Chaabi zuzurechnen. Louca’s halbrecherischer, feuriger „Post Everything“ ist augenzwinkernd und voller Referenzen. Der Orientale bedient sich wo es ihm gefällt, nuancenreich verwebt er Einflüsse in seinen psychedelisch-orientalischen Klangteppich. Auf seinem Album „Benhayyi al-Baghbaghan „ hat er sich u.a. der Mitarbeit von Alan Bishop und Sam Shalabi versichert, live wird ein Trio mit Bashar Farran und Thomasso Capellato auf der Bühne des Stadtgarten in Köln stehen. Fast Forward…..

Lubelski, Samara - The Guilded Raid LP

Drawing Room.

DLubelski guilded rainrawing Room. Samara Lubelski knows how to make highly refined “pop” records, and her newest album, The Gilded Raid, is the best example yet of her baroque genius. Of course and completely understood, this statement may come as a surprise for those most familiar with Lubelski’s more “outer” sounds, but alas, it’s a wonderful thing indeed. With all of Lubelski’s lovely pastoral and ethereal understandings fully in place on The Gilded Raid, the album is a most splendid beauty that celebrates the forthcoming other-worldly new age. In other words, it’s nighttime music for the new time. For The Gilded Raid, Lubelski worked with her long-time collaborators, Metabolismus, and recorded it at their studio, Sumsilobatem, located in the village of Degenfeld near Stuttgart Germany. With her well-seasoned team in place, it was inevitable that only a tuneful garden of magical blessedness would be created. Closer to being psychic than psychedelic, The Gilded Age is more than just harmonious with the current world and the next. It’s the full-fledged portal we’ve been hoping for. The dimension that Samara Lubelski has created with The Gilded Raid is a sought after realm for dreaming and time travelling, and the album showcases Ms. Lubelski at her extrasensory summit with a welcoming pop openness. One’s senses will develop new and forward awareness upon repeated listen...

Pressed on 180-gram, the initial LP pressing is limited to 350 copies. An unlimited download version is also available.

Manas - s/t LP

ManasFeeding Tube. First LP by Manas, a duo comprised of guitarist Tashi Dorji and drummer Thom Nguyen. Tashi, who's based in Asheville NC these days, has been cutting a wide swathe through the guitar underground over the past few years. Originally focused on acoustic weaponry, he has added electric guitar to his arsenal, without giving up any of the weird angular bite of his initial work. Thom is known to have played with a couple of Asheville free rock bands, Nest Egg and Mendocino, but this is the first exposure his excellent work will be having outside of Buncombe County. As a duo, Manas explores lots of improvisational ground, ranging from extreme sideways expansions of sonics texture -- with Tashi's guitar moving decisively outward while Thom's drums explode in a mostly (but not entirely) parallel plane -- to repetitive reflecto passages that curl up into a tight ball before achieving escape velocity. The record is a blast, with deceptively arch liner notes by none other than Ben Chasny, who has been one of Tashi's loudest cheerleaders for many a moon. But we can't really blame Ben. This Manas LP makes us wanna shout about team spirit too. Guh! Guh! Guh!" --Byron Coley, 2015. Limited Edition of 400.

Martine, Tucker - Brokenhearted Dragonflies LP

broken hearted dragonflySublime Frequencies. Insect electronica from Southeast Asia. There is a legend in Burma stating that swarms of male dragonflies gather to join in choruses of high-pitched tones to court their mates. The ones that don't succeed in mating eventually scream so loud that their chests explode and they drop dead to the ground. These recordings are a tribute to this legend. Droning cicadas, dragonflies, and other insects display their charm as masters of the high frequency airwaves, recorded live and unprocessed by Tucker Martine in the lush settings of Laos, Thailand, and Burma. Enter the supernatural world where entomology and electronica converge in a tropical hallucination of alien sound. Anyone who has ever wondered if these strange symphonies could be recorded or preserved as precisely as they sound in the field need look no further. Martine has done it and you will be transported to the exact experience one would encounter in these mysterious lowlands. Limited edition LP pressing of the long out-of-print CD from 2004, comes with a beautiful tip-on jacket, including an insert with photos and liner notes by Hakim Bey and Alan Bishop.

Master Musicians Of Bukkake - Far West LP

Important. On "Far West," the Master Musicians of Bukkake mark a turn from their Totem Trilogy. If the Totems were an expression of yang energy, then the "Far West" cycle is the yin that took seed within the trilogy. What happens when you travel so far east looking for enlightenment that you pass your destination and are headed west again? The mania of being lost in the mountains of the Cascade Corridor, searching aimlessly for the Northern Pacific coast. A spiritual Donner party of sorts, feeding off fantasy and mirages and imaginary shamans.

"Far West" is the soundtrack to this expedition to the caves of light we all travel into with hopes of acquiring redemption, only to realize our bodies have dissolved—gone like rain from the sky, snow from the ground, thoughts from the mind. The sound of "Far West" is a progressive folk record inspired by Paul Giovanni's Wicker Man soundtrack, early Canterbury prog folk, the suspenseful soundtracks of Goblin and Ennio Morricone, Gerry Goldsmith's interwoven dark orchestrations, and Pacific Northwest folk rock.

The Master Musicians of Bukkake take an earthly and shamanistic approach to these influences and infuse it with Krautrock pulses interweaved with acoustic guitars, intricately layered rhythms, hazed-out modular analog synths, brassy stabs, and cultish choirs. A true psychedelic, audiophile experience to dissolve your body in. "Far West" also features backing vocals by Sub Pop! recording artists Rose Windows, a deluxe cover illustration by Simon Fowler, and the amazing photography of Alison Scarpulla.

Mitchell, Roscoe / Marsh, Tony / Edwards, John - Improvisations 2xLP

Otoroku 2013."The recordings on this double LP are taken from the first night of Roscoe Mitchell's inaugural two day residency at Cafe OTO in 2012, and his first time playing with drummer Tony Marsh and double bassist John Edwards. It was one of those nights where the music electrifies the room. Everyone on edge. Everything alive with the possibilities. Although there was much talk after the concert of the group playing together again, this would sadly be the first and last time the trio would play. Tony passed away unexpectedly just a few weeks later, making this his last documented performance and a fitting tribute to a truly great drummer and percussionist. The LPs are housed in two-color screen-printed sleeves on archival quality card stock; designed by Oliver Pitt. High quality 180 gram vinyl pressing at Record Industry, The Netherlands. Recorded by James Dunn and John Chantler at Cafe OTO, 9th March 2012. Mixed by John Chantler. Mastered by Andreas [LUPO] Lubich at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin."
