6“

MANGLED STATE - Stigma 6“ (youth attack - As voyeurs of a burning world, we find ourselves living in a perpetual aftermath of real-time destruction. This horror has seeped into our souls, leaving us isolated, bitter, and betrayed. MANGLED STATE observe this all too clearly. On their caustic debut they articulate the feeling of having one’s back to the wall with no choice left but to lash out. Initially conceived as a two piece, this Houston, Texas outfit showcases J. Everett & J. Bokemeyer pounding through 5 tracks of minimalist U.S. hardcore in a style that has come to define Youth Attack’s vision: direct, hostile and unapologetic.) 17.00


7“

ARTS - Graveside Summoning 7“ (youth attack - After completing nine years of occult study and seclusion, ARTS has manifested “Graveside Summoning,” containing four malevolent spells that seal the listener in a labyrinth of insanity. These compositions unleash a full-frontal assault of venomous vocals with riffs encircled in sepulchral fog to swallow you in a black abyss. .:AA:. returns from the shadows to stake his claim as the magus of aural chants, while .:MM:. conjures symphonic angels to poison your mind with confusion and doubt so that you may never rest again. In the dark years since the release of their monumental album, “Vault of Heaven,” ARTS has maintained their throttling style while developing a heightened sense of enchantment that has been painstakingly crafted within their furtive denomination to achieve maximum) 15.00

COMBAT FORCE - never stray: pile of skulls 7“ (youth attack - At last the incredible followup to Combat Force's savage demo has arrived, showing them at peak hostility, once more brandishing their barbaric style to lay waste the musical landscape as only the Denver scene can. The six songs on Never Stray show the band expanding their sound to reflect the vast influences that went into its masterful creation, resulting in a timeless assault on all that is weak and unworthy. Recorded on 4 track by James Trejo (Cadaver Dog, Life Support, The Consequence) at his Blood Lust Studios in Denver, Colorado and mixed and mastered by Will Killingsworth at Dead Air Studios, their long-anticipated EP features a stunning gatefold sleeve with artwork drawn by M. McCoy. The PILE OF SKULLS edition features stunning white vinyl and is housed in a heavy-duty gatefold sleeve printed on uncoated stock.) 15.00

DEAD MEAT - s/t 7“ (no front - KBD / Bloodstains Across London. 4 track debut 7“.) 7.00

LIFE SUPPORT - die like a man 7“ (youth attack - There’s no horror that we don’t create ourselves. In a world where success is achieved through the sufferings of others, our souls are but scraps floating in and out of corpses, blurring the line between the dead and the living. LIFE SUPPORT serves as an antidote to our waking death with a command to view mortality as a chance for good, as all else is a fantasy poisoning the heads of men. Denver HC legend James Trejo and Mark McCoy team up for this 5-song debut of pounding American hardcore, recorded by audio master Will Killingsworth at Dead Air Studios.) 15.00

MONONEGATIVES - Sure Shock 7“ (no front - 5 tracks of sweaty pogo punk from Canada – featuring members of Isolation Party and Klazo. Tuneful power pop, but with a rough-edged garage griminess (bubblegum and phlegm), plus a touch of new-wave synth for good measure (think: Screamers). For fans of 77 punk (Buzzcocks and, keeping it Canadian, The Viletones), and modern lo-fi speed-heads a la Liquids, Coneheads and CCTV. Plastic white-frame sunglasses and skinny ties provide the look.) 7.00


LP

ALESSANDRO BOSETTI - Plane/Talea LP (holidays - The cycle of compositions collected under the title Plane/Talea reflects my interest in vocal polyphonic music. They envision an "impossible choir" constructed through the sampling of thousands of fragments and pieces of voices, my own and those of others, and their recomposition into polyphonic garlands and textures. This cycle can be intended as the utopic sonification of an impossible community in which the voice is atomized into primary particles and later reconstituted into sonic masses and clouds. These are too dense and complex for a chorus of real human beings to sing. The music of Plane/Talea" is the sonic projection of such a community. The voice is not processed or altered in any way but subjected to molecular reorganization. Theoretically, a hyper-chorus could sing material of this type but, perhaps fortunately, such a choir does not yet exist. Up until now, in the process of creation of my vocal music, I've kept two poles and influences in balance: that of madrigalism in its late renaissance and contemporary incarnations and that of hyper-polyphony, which is close to spectral music. Though not ever having actually written in one or the other of these two styles, I've always felt this unresolvable and fertile tension in my work. (A.B.) Recorded, composed and mixed by Alessandro Bosetti at GMEM (Centre National de Création Musicale in Marseille). Additional recordings by Attila Faravelli at Spazio O', Milano. Mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at D&M, Berlin. Pressing info: 300 copies on black, embossed lettering) 20.00

ASYLUM PARTY - Borderline LP (dean global - Asylum Party's cold wave classic available on vinyl. Reissue by '80s French touching pop pioneers Asylum Party. Originally released on Lively Art in 1989, this is the very first vinyl repressing of the record in over 29 years. 'Borderline' is the band's second full length, playing a dark, lush, and melodic style of dreamy pop later to be dubbed cold wave.) 27.00

BODY VOID / KEEPER - split LP (roman numeral - Do you know how glaciers affect land? A glacier’s weight, combined with its gradual movement erode and carve away all the land beneath them. This geological violence perfectly describes this Split LP. BODY VOID and KEEPER both contribute pissed and absolutely pummeling performances of sedimentary DOOM. ‘Claustrophobia don’t listen to this if you suffer from it; you’ll only get anxiety from this envelopment of feedback and primal shrieking, reminiscent of a being who’s lost everything but their last breath... This split will definitely be in my yearly playlist and should be in yours. Onward to a sludge ridden 2020.” - The Sludgelord) 17.00

THE CAGED ANIMAL - Hiding My Face In Plain View LP (Debut 10 track full-length from London punk/ post-punks. Featuring members of Miscalculations. Caged Animal is the newest band from Marco of the Miscalculations and the Gaggers who also co-owns No Front Teeth Records. The sound of Caged Animal reminds me alot of the uptempo punk of the Miscalculations with driving melodic guitars and Marcos sneering, apathetic vocals that carve out each song. There are flashes of a couple of Marcos other bands, namely the Exit and Saccharine Souvenirs that help showcase Caged Animal’s diverse palate including an affinity for traditional post punk and new wave sounds. A solid album here that’ll sit nicely next to your Miscalculations LP’s. The LP includes an insert.) 13.00

CAIRO FREE JAZZ ENSEMBLE - Heliopolis LP (holidays - One of the great projects in Egyptian jazz, the Cairo Free Jazz Ensemble was formed by Salah Ragab and Hartmut Geerken as an avant-garde offshoot of the Cairo Jazz Band - the first jazz big band in the country - formed in 1968 when Ragab was appointed chief of Egypt’s Military Department of Music and had at his disposal a vast staff of musicians (almost three thousand!), an entire military building, and a full range collection of musical instruments. When encountering this recording, issued in 1970, the deep resonance found between the ensemble and its American counterparts becomes startlingly clear. Heliopolis is a stunning blend of big band spiritual jazz, the music of the Middle East, and the fire and energy of free jazz, unveiling a deep creative resonance with the contemporaneous efforts of Pharoah Sanders, Phil Cohran, and - of course - Sun Ra, combining jazz instrumentation and musical style with indigenous melodies and instruments to create a musical object with few parallels. The album is a throbbing, squealing, wild journey through the creative heights of sound channeling swirling, focused artistry that taps future and past in a single blow. Copies of the original pressing are between the rarest and most sought-after records in canon of recorded jazz. This is the first ever authorized repress released under license from Hartmut Geerken. Pressing info: 500 copies on black, 6 page foldout booklet) 20.00

DAITRO - y LP (echo canyon - beautiful repress of the last Daïtro LP from 2009, housed in a gatefold jacket. Including a booklet, reproduction flyers and a small tour poster) 16.00

FOXHALL STACKS - the coming collapse LP (Guitarist Jim Spellman (Velocity Girl, High Back Chairs) assembled these DC veterans in late 2015. Bassist Brian Baker is a legit punk godfather, with close to 40 years on bass and guitar for Minor Threat, Dag Nasty, and Bad Religion. Pete Moffett drummed for Government Issue and Wool before joining singer/guitarist Bill Barbot (Jawbox) in Burning Airlines. Decent pedigree, this lot.) 20.00

HUSEYIN ERTUNC SEXTET - A New World 2xLP (holidays - We consider ourselves extremely fortunate having met Hüseyin Ęrtunc during his terrestrial transit. After we reissued his wonderful album Mûsikî (privately released on Intex Sound in 1974) and a few collaborative albums with the Konstrukt collective, in 2017 we finally managed to invite him, Doğan Doğusel, Cem Tan and Umut Çağlar to play some shows in Italy as a quartet. Things got really complicated when their visas got rejected - one week before their plane was scheduled to take off - but we found a stalwart supporter of free jazz music at the phone when we contacted the Italian Embassy with a tiny bit of hope and (incredibly) we got the visas in time so we could spend a whole week with Hüseyin and his band, touring Italy and playing four shows of the best spiritual free jazz we heard in a long while. Right after that, we took the chance to book a recording session at the good old Outside Inside Studio where our loyal partner Matt Bordin captured on tape two days of improvisation by Hüseyin Ęrtunc (Fender Rhodes electric piano, Philicorda organ and chant), Umut Çağlar (percussion and bamboo flutes), Doğan Doğusel (double bass), Cem Tan (drums), joined for this special occasion by the Jooklos Virginia Genta (tenor and sopranino saxophones, clarinet, flutes), and David Vanzan (percussion) leaving an incredible musical document, not only for the fact that - unfortunately - it was Hüseyin's last session on this world. "Most of Ertunç’s recorded appearances have been on drum set, where he’s employed a massive and materialist cymbal approach that takes Sunny Murray’s explosive chatter as a lifting-off point. Ertunç waxed one LP as a leader in 1974, Mûsikî (with then-regular partners Michael Cosmic and Phill Musra, issued on the tiny Intex label), and returned to Turkey in the early 1990s. Ertunç’s playing, relentless as it might be, evinces a strident, swinging quality that reaches back decades. His pianistic approach is rooted in the outpouring of voluminous, allover rhythm in concentrated shards. One might first think of early Cecil Taylor, though another Boston resident is also worth mentioning – Jaki Byard, who could move from barrelhouse to crepuscular romanticism and dense chordal superimpositions at the drop of a hat. If he and Ertunç didn’t necessarily work together, their spirits are kindred." (Clifford Allen) Pressing info: 300 copies on black) 29.00

LA RABBIA - Shock Tactics LP (no front teeth - Caustic protest punk from a band based in London featuring  members of Miscaulculations and The Gaggers. The distoro-noise and the polemics are similar to Bad Breeding, (likewise, 80s anarcho punk probably has an influence). Cress and Burnt Cross come to mind too, mainly due to (what sounds like) the non-human machine-drum-beats (it might be a real drummer, just playing a simple beat, either way it works). This reminds me, weirdly, of listening to an international tape compliation from the 1980s, when this one track from a less familair nationality suddenly jumps out at you, because they have that kind of vitriolic energy and odd originality that captures your interest more than anything else.) 13.00

LITTLE NEMO - Turquoise Fields LP (dena - Deanwell Global Music is pleased to present this reissue by French Touching Pop pioneers Little Nemo. Originally released on Lively Art in 1990, this is the very first vinyl repressing of the record in over 29 years. Turquoise Fields is the band’s fourth full length, playing a dark, lush, and melodic style of dreamy jangle pop later to be dubbed cold wave.) 25.00

MICHAEL ZERANG - Assyrian Caesarean LP (holidays - Chicago-based percussionist Michael Zerang presents his first solo recording after a long career as an exploratory musician and composer. Recorded and mixed by Matt Bordin in the woods at (the new) Outside Inside Studio, the album features a range of approaches to percussion that Zerang has developed over the years, including the use of vibrating drumhead surfaces, expressive friction passages, multiple timbre percussion, and straight up trap-set drumming - all infused with a rich sense of melodic, rhythmic and textural innovation. Zerang has performed and recorded with some of the most adventurous artists of his era, including a fourteen-year stint with The Peter Brotzmann Chicago Tentet, Joe McPhee’s Survival Unit III, and an extended collaboration with drummer and percussionist Hamid Drake. Frequent collaborators also include cellist Fred Lonberg-Holm, pianist and synthesist Jim Baker, bassist Kent Kessler, trumpeter Axel Dorner, along with an ever-widening pool of international improvisors. He also recently began performing with the experimental Middle-Eastern super group Karkhana - with Mazen Kerbaj, Sharif Sehnaoui, Maurice Louca, Tony Elieh, Sam Shalabi and Umut Çağlar. Pressing info: 300 copies on black) 20.00

MODERN MANNEQUINS - Discography 1983-1985 LP (dean - Deanwell Global Music is pleased to present this discography by 80s Atlanta based minimal wave/synth punk band The Modern Mannequins. The short-lived Modern Mannequins are a rare specimen of synth punk from the south, countering similar sounds coming from the west coast and Europe in the early 80s. While comparable to bands such as The Units, The Screamers, and Blancmange, The Modern Mannequins sound stands uniquely on its own- both poppy and catchy, while distinctively punk rock.) 25.00

OAKHANDS - The Shadow of Your Guard Receding LP (tcm - Oakhands from Munich, Germany built their house right on the borders of Post-Hardcore, Emo and Indierock. Their debut „The Shadow of Your Guard Receeding“, released in Spring 2020 by this charming man records, is the follow to their critically acclaimed EP released by Uncle M in 2016. it will bring you 11 brand new tunes about family, mental health, social anxiety or masculinity in ones modern society, full of emotions and with its aesthetic compareable to the writers approach of the „Sturm & Drand“ period. Their complexity, metaphoroc and their abstract forms of storytelling may seem a bit artsy and stand in contrast to their stripped down live performances. „The Shadow of Your Guard Receeding“ will be visulaized by 7 conceptual videos telling one story on 3 different time layers – so please dive into the world of OAKHANDS with all your concentration and passion you have for this adventurous piece of music.) 14.00

ROBERT STILLMAN - reality LP (orindal - Reality is the new album from Maine-born, UK-based composer and multi-instrumentalist Robert Stillman. Stillman's catalogue on Orindal Records chronicles a singular musical voice traversing diverse stylistic territories: the intricate layered arrangements of 'cosmic jazz' on his 2016 LP Rainbow, the ambient experimental textures of his 2016 EP Time of Waves, and the minimal repetitions of his 2017 tape of electric piano meditations, Portals. Each of these sound worlds are reflected in the eight tracks of Reality, but in a looser, more improvised form which, for Stillman, represents a return to his formative, early influences in the recordings of John and Alice Coltrane, Ornette Coleman, and Albert Ayler. These luminary voices serve as relevant reference points for an album that Stillman made as an attempt to, as he articulates it, "draw attention to, and unconditionally praise, the directly experienced world." For Stillman, (and for Jason Evans, whose photographs feature on the album cover art) this is the 'reality' sensed in small scale, momentary perceptions of beauty (read: "is-ness") that reveal themselves when we are awake to the present. These moments represent the well from which this album's music draws its energy and purpose.) 22.00

ROEDELIUS - Tape Archive Essence 1973-1978 LP (buero b - 'Tape Archive Essence 1973-1978’ is a vital dip into the intimate ambient depths of Hans-Joachim Roedelius’ archive circa his early years with Cluster & Harmonia - must check for fans of the most beautiful early ambient and kosmische electronics. Distilled from the bigger 2014 boxset, this suite affords an absorbing audience with the pioneering composer at his contemplative and playful best, working in the pastoral fringe realms of krautrock and kosmiche where he effectively sketched out the frameworks that would endure to inform modern ambient musics. Picking a bouquet of nine highlights from the highly sought-after boxset, Bureau B point to myriad subtle strains of Roedelius’ style during this pivotal era when his music would cross stylistic paths with everyone from Eno to Konrad Schnitzler and Holger Czukay and begin to inform reams of wide-eyed synth explorers to follow in its gently iridescent wake. They all capture a fleeting moment or passage in time, capturing the artist in real-time flow at his organs and synths conjuring enchanting, mesmerising arp magick that sounds timeless and ancient yet futuristic in tone and brimming with melodic hope. Bureau B have done a smart job in compiling this beauty, highlighting some glorious work between the spongiform, swelling organ drones and burbling electronics of ’Nächtens In Forst (Bordun Mit Tongeneratoren)’, the colourful chronic cascade of ’Springende Inspiration (Harmonisches Skizze)’, and the exquisite pastoral romance of ‘Skizze 4 Von ‘By This River’, while the elegantly spaced out drive of ‘Rokkokko (Nicht Verwendetes Stück)’ clearly shows his prescience over so much minimal German techno. Class, one-of-a-kind synth music.) 23.00

SICK BAGS - Only The Young Die Good LP ("Fresh off a killer debut EP released early this year, Virginia's Sick Bags are back with six more tracks of fierce and filthy punk rock and roll. Again, guitarist Tony Leet (ex Dirty Fingers, Ladies) has penned some raw and rocking punk tunes that ascend to another level on the strength of Mel Medina's bad-ass vocals and Paul Kirk's scorching guitar leads. Only The Young Die Good, is a potent mix of Stooges/MC5 thunder, early American punk grit, and even a little '80s glam metal sleaze. Sometimes you just need a record like this that kicks you straight in the teeth, and I like how everything builds up to the epic and blazing "Halfway to Hell". There's nothing fancy going on here: just tough, straight-forward punk rock with attitude for days. Already recognized as one of Richmond's must-see live acts, Sick Bags are rising stars of the trashy punk scene." (fasterandlouder)) 13.00

T.V. DRUGS - We're Not TV Kids LP (Holy shit this thing smokes!  T.V. Drugs were an amazing punk rock band from Italy.  ‘We’re Not TV Kids’ is their first and only album that sounds like it was recorded between 1978 - 1980.  The album has a warm fuzzy recording style with loud slashing guitars, a vitriolic singer and plenty of bottom end rumblin' coming off like an amped up mix of Los Reactors, the Screamers and the Viletones.  This scorching 8 track masterpiece is not to be missed. ) 13.00

WEDNESDAY - I Was Trying to Describe You to Someone LP (orindal - I Was Trying to Describe You to Someone is Wednesday’s second full-length album & first as a full band. The Asheville, NC quintet (guitarist/vocalist Karly Hartzman, lead guitarist Daniel Gorham, pedal steel guitarist Xandy Chelmis, bassist Margo Schultz & drummer Alan Miller) maximizes the dark dissonance of a three guitar attack to highlight the emotionality of Hartzman’s bell-clear vocals & wisps of half-recalled memories & literary references that make up her lyrics. I Was Trying to Describe You to Someone’s eight songs meld elements of shoegaze, grunge, indie pop & southern American culture into a uniquely personal style of modern rock music that resonates with power & tenderness. Wednesday began as a recording collaboration between Hartzman & Daniel during the winter of 2017, while both students at the University of North Carolina Asheville. While living on campus, the duo recorded a whimsical synth-pop LP entitled Yep, Definitely, influenced heavily by the album Reading, Writing and Arithmetic by English alternative rock group The Sundays (the inspiration for Wednesday’s own band name). The duo recruited Chelmis & Miller (along with original bassist Julien Melissas) to play a party at Karly’s sister’s house, & the full band had an instant chemistry that won over the small crowd. With the immediate support of Asheville’s underground music scene, Wednesday quickly became a local staple, appearing often at the band’s favorite Asheville venue, The Mothlight.) 22.00


TAPES

LITTLE WINGS - Rosy’s Own TAPE (Rosy’s Own is a limited release in collaboration with Perpetual Doom & Moone Records, filmed and recorded on an undisclosed ranch in the mountains of Southern California. "Recorded at the end of day two of the "Why Me?" video shoot as a live video by the people at Perpetual Doom. Solo live backyard acoustic performance featuring the chiming in of our late cockatiel Rosy Field Muto. I cannot listen to this because I haven't heard her voice since she lost her battle on Valentine's Day. Features songs from Zephyr Jr., People, Froggy's and a poem referenced on Ropes In Paradise.“) 11.00


BOOKS

ANTONIA TRICARICO - frame of mind BOOK (In the late 1990s bands like Fugazi, Branch Manager, the Make-Up, Deep Lust, Quix*o*tic, Lungfish, Spirit Caravan, Scaramouche, Stinking Lizaveta, and many more were active in and around the underground music scene in Washington, DC. While those bands went on a hiatus or dissolved over the years, others inspired by them have formed, including Dead Meadow, Motorcycle Wars, the Evens, and Weird War. In Frame of Mind, all of these groups appear in over 200 powerful and evocative photos by Antonia Tricarico. In addition to DC’s homegrown offerings, Frame of Mind also features photos of other seminal and like-minded groups that passed through the city, such as the Melvins, the Ex (from the Netherlands), Uzeda (from Italy), Joan Jett, Shellac, Babes in Toyland, the Julie Ruin, L7, and Alice Bag. Frame of Mind captures underground music throu) 35.00

GLEN E. FRIEDMAN - Keep Your Eyes Open: The Fugazi Photographs BOOK (EXPANDED 2nd editon The first edition of the book was released in 2007 on the 20th anniversary of Fugazi's first show). As of 2019, a second edition has been released which includes a new interview with Glen E. Friedman & Ian MacKaye. The almost 200-page, hardcover book presents the best of Friedman's unparalleled photographic documentation of Fugazi's members in almost 200 color and black & white images captured by Friedman on-stage and off between 1986 and Fugazi's last U.S. concert in 2002. "Glen E. Friedman is considered one of the most important photographers of his generation, world-renowned for his prescient documentation of many of recent history's most iconic movements in pop culture. Among other worthy subjects, his lens has captured moments in the birth and evolution of radical skateboarding, hardcore punk, and hip-hop, as Friedman played a firsthand role in their development.“ - Burning Flags Press) 38.00

7“

DESPERFECTO - Quanta Gerra 7“ (Four tracks of crude Chilean Hardcore PUNK. Somewhere between PARTISANS, BASTARDOS SIN NOMBRE, EXEROICA, FERTIL MISERIA and ULTIMO RESORTE. Highly recommended.) 7.00

LP

DIE ATLANTIK SCHWIMMER - Demo 83 LP (static age - Their Demo Tape from 83 for the first time on vinyl ! FFO of Wire, The Sound, Chameleons, Post Punk, ZickZack etc. !) 16.00

THE BETHS - Warm Blood LP (First time available on vinyl, this EP is the prequel to The Beths' debut album "Future Me Hates Me" which is out now. The Beths’ Warm Blood is a strong contender for the catchiest record you’ve never heard. Formed when four jazz students at the University of Auckland bonded over their shared love of the pop-punk sounds of their youth, The Beths bring new energy to the genre. This 5-song debut EP, a deliriously pleasurable statement of purpose, comes crammed with enough blissful hooks to carry through most bands’ careers. Listeners for whom the tag “New Zealand indie rock” brings to mind the Flying Nun sound of bands like The Clean and The Chills may be surprised to find Warm Blood’s five unstoppable tunes landing closer to artists like Slant 6 and The Breeders. The nimble guitar work here moves from heavy riffing reminiscent of Sleater-Kinney to hazily bending lines that would make Stephen Malkmus and Mary Timony beam, while the joyous vocal harmonies from all four members bubble and swell to ecstatic crescendos that channel The Zombies’ Odessey and Oracle. With impeccable production from guitarist Jonathan Pearce and stellar musicianship across the board, Warm Blood is a non-stop delight. Tracks like leadoff track and first single “Whatever,” the ridiculously addictive standout “Idea/Intent,” and “Rush Hour 3,” a playful ode to romance in this era of download-and-chill franchise films, take delight in the challenge of breathing new energy into the limitations of the 3-minute pop song.

THE BETHS - Future Me Hates Me LP (The Beths occupy a warm, energetic sonic space between joyful hooks, sun-soaked harmonies, and acerbic lyrics. Their debut album Future Me Hates Me, forthcoming on Carpark Records, delivers an astonishment of roadtrip-ready pleasures, each song hitting your ears with an exhilarating endorphin rush like the first time you heard Slanted and Enchanted or “Cannonball.” Front and center on these ten infectious tracks is lead singer and primary songwriter Elizabeth Stokes. Stokes has previously worked in other genres within Auckland’s rich and varied music scene, recently playing in a folk outfit, but it was in exploring the angst-ridden sounds of her youth that she found her place. “Fronting this kind of band was a new experience for me,” says Stokes. “I never thought I had the right voice for it.” From the irresistible title track to future singles “Happy Unhappy” and “You Wouldn’t Like Me,” Stokes commands a vocal range that spans from the brash confidence of Joan Jett to the disarming vulnerability of Jenny Lewis. Further honeying Future Me Hates Me’s dark lyrics that explore complex topics like being newly alone and the self-defeating anticipation of impending regret, ecstatic vocal harmonies bubble up like in the greatest pop and R+B of the ‘60s, while inverting the trope of the “sad dude singer accompanied by a homogenous girl-sound.” All four members of The Beths studied jazz at university, resulting in a toolkit of deft instrumental chops and tricked-out arrangements that operate on a level rarely found in guitar-pop. Beths guitarist and studio guru Jonathan Pearce (whose other acts as producer include recent Captured Tracks signing Wax Chattels) brings it all home with an approach that’s equal parts seasoned perfectionist and D.I.Y.) 22.00

EINSTÜRZENDE NEUBAUTEN - Alles In Allem LP (potomak -This album marks the quintessence of the band's output, opening yet another unexpected door in 40 years of ongoing sound research by a very experimental group of musicians around Blixa Bargeld. This band, like nearly no other, has managed to create a musical cosmos. It has, in fact, built up its own genre by uniquely combining edgy sound with sophisticated poetry. Einstürzende Neubauten's first regular studio album in 12 years presents an incomparable band that defies categorization.) 25.00

GAS - Oktember LP (OKTEMBER was the second EP release under Wolfgang Voigt’s mythical GAS project. Originally released in 1999 on the iconic Frankfurt imprint Mille Plateaux, and then reissued in 2016 as a part of GAS “BOX”, OKTEMBER is now released on his own label KOMPAKT on 180 gram LP vinyl in its original artwork. This reissue features the single “Tal ‘90“ – originally released as a part of the Pop Ambient 2002 collection. This two-track long player starts with A-Side “Tal 90”. Sampled strings and guitars soundtrack a more uplifting side to what is typically accustomed to being the sound of GAS. The title track “Oktember” is a dense, hypnotic affair that conjures a unique vision of dub techno that few have been able to replicate. A monumental soundtrack to uncertain times.) 23.00

GROUP A - AnOther LP (mannequin - Japanese industrial / avant-garde synth duo group A partner with choreographer/performer Dana Gingras and Montréal media artist Sonya Stefan as well as Finnish lighting designer Mikko Hynninen for 'anOther', the multimedia project developed and premiered at Agora de la danse, Montréal, April 2018. Inspired by the infamous subway scene from Andrzej Zulawski’s “Possession", the performance is breathing through a set of televisions, sounds, lights and images converging to create an exhilarating event placing a living, breathing and transmuting body at the heart of the experience. “A hybrid of art installation and electroacoustic performance, anOther transports us into a post-feminine fourth dimension, whose atmosphere is as enticing as it is paradoxically unsettling. This jewel of experimental choreography will thrill visual art and underground music aficionados.” - Mélanie Carpentier, Le Devoir) 20.00

HUERCO S. - For Those Of You Who Have Never (And Also Those Who Have) DLP (2020 repress w/ original artwork - Huerco S returns with a set of warm ambient tracks. While some of these loop-driven pieces refer to Japanese artists (like Susumu Yokota), you'll also find an unmissable injection of Chain Reaction (and the likes). The sound is light, soft and intimate, but the disruptive moments from his debut album have not completely vanished. With 'For Those Of..', After his Deep House and Dubtechno excursions on Proibito, Huerco S continues to work with 'classic' sounds and genres without losing his 'outsider' position.) 26.00

KASSEL JAEGER & JIM O'ROURKE - In Cobalt Aura Sleeps LP (editons mego - Second outing from Jaeger and O’Rourke following the release Wakes on Cerulean on Editions Mego in 2017. Covering a vast terrain with delicacy and poise this new release unveils a spectral showcase for all manner of deep abstraction. The first side positions itself somewhere between stoned komische synth and more nuanced electroacoustic tactics, all weighted by a melancholic undertow. The second side builds on the tension of the former as an undulating drone teases all variety of matter to rise and fall amongst the foreign space it inhabits. The effect creates an enormous sense of deep space before subsiding into a smaller more anxious flickering world. All manner of machines fold into play; digital machines, industrial and analogue machines. The seemingly random yet ordered nature of events is reminiscent of the behaviour of the natural world providing this machine driven release a convincing organic feel. Whether invoking mirrors, distant galaxies or a pond of frogs it is a delightful challenge to focus and locate what is nature and what is nurture. To play this loud is to immerse oneself in a fascinating journey which carries the listener through an array of dizzying emotional states.) 22.00

MARJA AHTI - The Current Inside LP (hollow ground - The Current Inside”, Marja Ahti's sophomore album for Hallow Ground, plays with the theme of currents - connecting and animating movements in the form of air, water and electricity. It approaches sound as a poetic medium, focusing both on the experience of sound as form and energy and on a loosely narrative arc, suggesting a riddle on the relations between the sounds. It implements alternative as well as intuitive tunings, analog and digital synthesis, recordings of sonorous spaces and vessels, electromagnetic fields transduced into audio, acoustic close-ups of elements in motion and other field recordings. Fluently connecting quite diverse sound sources, Ahti's music lingers in a zone between abstract sonorities and vaguely familiar acoustic environments. The first half of the album consists of ”The Altitudes”, a piece commissioned by Ina GRM for Présences Électronique and Sonic Acts. It was inspired by descriptions of the layers of Earth's atmosphere. Imagining a movement through layers of air, the piece unfolds with a slow intensity, interweaving concrete sounds and closely tuned electronic sonorities. Traversing the altitudes, a landscape of entangled elements, masses and currents emerges. The air around us has weight and it presses against everything it touches. As gravity pulls it to Earth, it is sensed as pressure. The rotation of the planet, the angle of the sun at any new moment sets the elements in motion in a chain reaction. The other side consists of four shorter pieces. ”The Currents” opens with a dance of trembling charged movements. ”Lost Lake” extracts resonant tones from a trail of close-up recordings of winter environments, while ”Fluctuating Streams” channels streaming air in different forms. The closing track, ”Sundial”, could be construed as the steady turning of the planetary angle towards the sun, unfolding through fragments of everyday activity against the backdrop of piercing, slowly twisting, suspended tone. Marja Ahti (b. 1981) is a musician and composer based in Turku, Finland. Originally from Sweden, Ahti has been a part of the Finnish experimental music scene for more than ten years in different constellations. She is currently active in the duo Ahti & Ahti with her partner and as a member of the Himera artist/organizer collective. Her critically acclaimed 2019 solo debut, Vegetal Negatives, explored a new formal language and sonic palette inspired by a short text by René Daumal. ) 26.00

MAXWELL STERLING - Laced With Rumour: Loud-Speaker Of Truth LP (Weaving an intricately detailed tapestry of meditative, spiritual jazz and dream electronics, Maxwell Sterling’s astonishing second album ‘Laced With Rumour: Loud-Speaker Of Truth’ blooms in the gaps between Don Cherry, Talk Talk and Kara-Lis Coverdale, gently coaxing us into a trance- like reverie where the real and artificial morph into one pulsing organism. Originating as a multi-channel installation commissioned by Nottingham Contemporary in 2018, the four extended pieces here were recorded at home in Morecambe Bay and then subsequently placed in a room alongside works by Moki Cherry (spouse of Don, mother of Neneh and Eagle-Eye Cherry), Penny Slinger, and a collection of static musical instruments the piece was intended to complement. As a follow-up to Sterling’s 2017 cult hit ‘Hollywood Medieval’ for The Death of Rave, ‘Laced With Rumour’ works with notably more fluid and gently psychoactive structuring that takes in seemingly disparate influences - from Roman mythology to Nottingham’s Lace industry - that results in a sprawling but intimate world of sound, characterised by aetheric arrangements that effectively elide the disciplines of spiritual jazz, chamber music, and art installation into something altogether new. Much like Kara-Lis Coverdale’s converging interests in traditional vs hyper-modern, acoustic vs artificial and synthetic modes of sound, Sterling’s work here is fluid and unorthodox, but rooted in a deep understanding of convention which he proceeds to bend and re-shape at will. The album opens with a slowly contemplative and almost solemn drift between ‘Laced’, which features samples of Don Cherry weft into its tingling fray of electro-acoustic timbres, alongside the breezy chamber strokes of ‘With Rumour’, the hallucinogenic qualities of ‘Loud-Speaker’, and the darker revelation ‘Of Truth’, which concludes with a transition from mired murk to tones that channel Maxwell’s refined cinematic nous. One of those albums that seems impossible to fully absorb in one sitting, listening to ‘Laced With Rumour...’ takes you from a swirl of brushed cymbals into harpsichord shimmers, passages of solo piano brushing up against the deepest subs - like a more bruised and flipped Sakamoto + Alva Noto collab, to Arthur Russell’s ‘World Of Echo’ slowly descending into synthesised madness. It’s a rich and stunning meditation for our time.) 25.00

MAXX MANN - s/t LP (dark entries - Maxx Mann were the gay New Wave duo of Frank Oldham Jr (vocals, lyrics) and Paul Hamman (music) from New York City formed in 1981. Frank studied voice and acting at the Herbert Bergdorf School idolizing Eartha Kitt, Nancy Wilson, Johnny Mathis and Shirley Bassey. Paul was playing piano for a cabaret singer at a bar in Greenwich Village where Frank met him and their friendship began. Paul and Frank worked together 3 to 4 times a week recording their debut self-titled album released in 1982, limited to 500 copies. Songs provide interesting insights into the homosexual experience before the AIDS crisis: cruising backroom bars, BDSM and one-night stands. The music is "Neo-realistic rock" heavily influenced by punk, titillating, synthesized body and soul with Frank’s dramatized vocal stylings. The original press release sent to radio stations stated, "Because this is a completely innovative sound, we hope you will give it several listenings. It is adventurous, daring, and certain to cause reactions from your listeners.” For this first time vinyl/CD reissue we’ve added two bonus instrumental tracks, so the album now contains all four original vocal cuts and their corresponding instrumental versions. Paul sadly passed away in 1986 aged 33 from AIDS-related illness and we dedicate this reissue to him. All songs have been remastered by George Horn at Fantasy Studios. Each copy is housed in an exact replica of the 1982 jacket and includes a fold-post poster with photos, lyrics and notes by Frank Oldham Jr.) 24.00

NILS FRAHM - All Encores 3LP (In celebration of Piano Day, Nils Frahm will release his acclaimed All Encores album on 3LP vinyl. Previously only available on CD and digitally, All Encores encompassed the three Encores EPs as one full length featuring 80 minutes of music, orbiting his masterful 2018 album All Melody . Whilst Encores 1 focused on an acoustic pallet of sounds with solo piano and harmonium at the core, and Encores 2 explored more ambient landscapes, now Encores 3 sees Nils expand on the percussive and electronic elements in his work. “The idea behind All Encores is one we had from before All Melody; to separate releases each with their own distinct musical style and theme, perhaps even as a triple album. But All Melody became larger than itself and took over any initial concepts. I think the idea of All Encores is like musical islands that compliment All Melody.” Moulded during All Melody but refined by his live performances, All Encores is testament to Nils’ exceptional ability to craft his art on stage. Artificially Intelligent which showcases his ‘mad professor’ organ, and All Armed which has been a live favourite for some time, appearing on set lists since 2015, are now available to hear on record for the very first time. The final track of Encores 3 , as well as the whole series, Amirador, perhaps aptly nods to the Spanish word for ‘lookout’ and hints at what’s to come.) 35.00

PAN SONIC - Oksastus DLP (This record on Kvitnu presents live recordings be PAN SONIC played in Kyiv, Ukraine on June 6th, 2009. Oksastus – is a Finnish word for process of grafting or cultivating of plants. "Pan Sonic, the Finnish noise duo who split in 2010, recorded this meticulous live effort in 2009 in Kyiv in the Ukraine. It's impossible to frame it without thinking about the impending meltdown of both band and country, cloaking Oksastus in an apocalyptic backdrop." Pitchfork, 2014 (7.1 rating)) 38.00

ROEDELIUS - Tape Archive Essence 1973-1978 LP (buereo b - 'Tape Archive Essence 1973-1978’ is a vital dip into the intimate ambient depths of Hans-Joachim Roedelius’ archive circa his early years with Cluster & Harmonia - must check for fans of the most beautiful early ambient and kosmische electronics. Distilled from the bigger 2014 boxset, this suite affords an absorbing audience with the pioneering composer at his contemplative and playful best, working in the pastoral fringe realms of krautrock and kosmiche where he effectively sketched out the frameworks that would endure to inform modern ambient musics. Picking a bouquet of nine highlights from the highly sought-after boxset, Bureau B point to myriad subtle strains of Roedelius’ style during this pivotal era when his music would cross stylistic paths with everyone from Eno to Konrad Schnitzler and Holger Czukay and begin to inform reams of wide-eyed synth explorers to follow in its gently iridescent wake. They all capture a fleeting moment or passage in time, capturing the artist in real-time flow at his organs and synths conjuring enchanting, mesmerising arp magick that sounds timeless and ancient yet futuristic in tone and brimming with melodic hope. Bureau B have done a smart job in compiling this beauty, highlighting some glorious work between the spongiform, swelling organ drones and burbling electronics of ’Nächtens In Forst (Bordun Mit Tongeneratoren)’, the colourful chronic cascade of ’Springende Inspiration (Harmonisches Skizze)’, and the exquisite pastoral romance of ‘Skizze 4 Von ‘By This River’, while the elegantly spaced out drive of ‘Rokkokko (Nicht Verwendetes Stück)’ clearly shows his prescience over so much minimal German techno. Class, one-of-a-kind synth music.) 23.00

ROEDELIUS - Selbstportrait Wahre Liebe LP (The first part of Hans-Joachim Roedelius' Selbstportrait (Self-Portrait) series was originally released under the title 'Sanfte Musik' on Sky Records in 1979. Now, some forty years later, a new instalment has arrived in the form of an album entitled 'Wahre Liebe’.) 23.00

TWIN PIGS - Chaos, Baby! LP (spastic - Originally released in 2016 and sold out since day two (I guess), we are happy to reissue the first album of this "new shape of punk to come". Eversince meme superstars and northern europe longest yellow XLR mic cable owners TWIN PIGS from Stockholm play this rumbling synthetic bass driven hardcore-garage-punk, while overtaking their neighbours of THE BABOON SHOW, THE HIVES or REFUSED in terms of sharp- and coolness. If you're looking for the next swedish powerpop supergroup delivering soft stadium rock for grannies tea party, you'll find your enemies in TWIN PIGS spraypainting the wallpapers and destroying your furniture next door.

SHITTY LIFE - Switch Off Your Head LP (spastic -Die langersehnte erste Full-Length der italienischen Garage-Punk-Granaten von SHITTY LIFE. Hektischer leicht KDB-angehauchter Zappelpunk mit ordentlicher 70s Kante und dem ultimativen Gespür für geniale Hooks. SHITTY LIFE haben sich innerhalb weniger Jahre in die Sperrspitze eben jener Bands katapultiert, die sie als Soundpaten bewunderten: REGULATIONS, DEAN DIRG, BRUTAL KNIGHTS, SOCIAL CIRCLE, SHITTY LIFE. In Sachen knapper, energiegeladener Rotzhymnen macht es ihnen derzeit vermutlich ohnehin niemand so leicht nach. Nach einigen Singles wird es auf "Switch Off Your Head" noch eine Spur treibender ohne den Fuß vom Gaspedal zu nehmen oder gar die Spur zu wechseln. 12 Songs - Party Hard!) 14.00

TASHI DORJI & TYLER DAMON - To Catch A Bird In A Net Of Wind LP (trost - Consisting of two gigantic, side-long compositions, To Catch A Bird In A Net of Wind sees guitarist Tashi Dorji and percussionist Tyler Damon further developing their sense of a shared musical form and content. Their sound is influenced by jazz and freeform aesthetics, but has hints of the political underpinning it too. ) 23.00

TOT - Untergang LP (spastic fantastic - Bevor es mit der "Lieder vom Glück" für die norddeutsche Band tot nur knapp an den Albumcharts scheiterte, gab es bereits einen Vorentwurf zur Lösung menschlicher Probleme. Seltsam treffend beschrieben sie schon Anfang 2019 den Zustand sich aktuell auftuender Missstände und Apokalypse-Phantasien in ihrer EP mit dem klangvollen Titel "Untergang". Wir wollten euch dieses Konzeptalbum nicht vorenthalten und haben es für den Fall von Verbindungsabbrüchen und minimierten Datenmengen auf Vinyl gebannt. Wie beim Vorgänger rasseln tot durch eine wilde Mixtur aus Surf, Noise, Garage und Deutschpunk ohne den Hauch einer Chance sich an einer bekannten Schublade zu bedienen. Der Soundtrack zum Untergang erscheint am internationalen Kampftag 2020 und ist limitiert auf 300 Stück, alle in wunderschönem Purple getaucht. Wascht euch die Hände und bestellt danach keimfrei und kontaktlos die auditive Desinfektion eurer Synapsen.) 14.00

TOT - Lieder vom Glück LP (Nach Klaus & Klaus und Otto Waalkes nun die nächste Asselpunkconnection von der Nordseeküste. Vorhang auf für Ihr Begräbnis, hier sind tot. Eine Band, wie der im Instrumentalsong zitierte Rackelhahn “Langsam stolziert der Rackelhahn zwischen den balzenden Birkhähnen umher. Solange der zerschlagene Körper noch zuckt, schlägt der Bastard drauf. Seine Kampfwut steigert sich so weit, dass er den Kopf des Birkhahnes abreißt und davonschleudert.“ Das eskalierte schnell. Totgesagte und unfruchtbare Bastarde leben nun mal länger und bieten an dieser Stelle viel Platz für neongraue Dystopien und Stress der Sorte „ach ja?“ und „komma her!. Glück wird in den Songs der vier notorisch mies gelaunten Punks zur kleinen Zwischenmahlzeit ohne Nährwert – Die Milchschnitte für Bulemiker oder die Currywurst für Magersüchtige. Glück ist ein Regenbogen in Deinem Hirn, der sich ebenso als Illusion erweist wie die Mär vom richtigen Leben im falschen. In einem Noise-Konglomerat aus ruppigen DEAD KENNEDYS, HUMAN ABFALL in Stumpf, TON STEINE SCHERBEN in Dada und VAL SINESTRA in Punk bolzen tot gegen alles: Unechte Paradiese, Konsumzwang, Arbeitswelt – und letztendlich gegen sich selbst als Teil des ganzen Irrsinns namens Gesellschaft. Dann wähnt man sich in der heilen Welt des Garage-Surf-Punk und sehnt sich nach der Vertrautheit bekannter Ohrwürmer. Doch das dulden tot nicht und zerwichsen diese Phantasie sogleich mit brachialen Punk-Riffs und sirenenhaftem Gesang. Sänger Jannes traktiert seinen Kehlkopf im Stil von VKJ, um den musikalischen Höllenritten das gewisse Etwas zu verleihen. Vorbild Rajas Thiele von RAZZIA und seinen „Tag ohne Schatten“ hört man da als Referenz klar heraus. Dabei sind die Songs erfrischend uneinheitlich. Jedes Stück versprüht sein eigenes Flair – wobei Flair vielleicht das falsche Wort ist. Wer tot kauft, kriegt das wahre Leben. Trist, doppelbödig und menschenfeindlich. Wer die „Lieder vom Glück“ hört, kriegt einen Energiekick der Extraklasse. „Brüllen, Zertrümmern und weg“ sang einst eine Hamburger Band. Irgendwie trifft das auch auf tot aus Ostfriesland zu. Denn man to!) 14.00

TRUE MOON - True Moon LP (lovely -True Moons self titled debut album contains ten tracks of Scandinavian dark wave. An all around feeling of despair and melancholy is mixed with a small glimpse of hope. Karolina Engdahls voice is providing light and closeness in an otherwise all out dark, raw and minimalistic collection of songs. As the Swedish songwriting creeps up on the listener and the melodies get stuck, songs as "Sugar", "Voodoo" and "Run Run Run” gives instant pleasure while ”In the dead of the night” and ”Our own darkness” is working more like an ever growing darkness within. True Moon finds its darkness closer to Joy Division than contemporary Swedish acts like Nicole Saboune and Invsn. ) 23.00

V/A - Pacific Breeze 2: Japanese City Pop, AOR & Boogie 1972-1986 DLP (lita - When Light In The Attic released Pacific Breeze: Japanese City Pop, AOR & Boogie 1976-1986 in 2019, it was the first collection of its kind to be released outside Japan. It proved to be just what music fans had been waiting for—a compilation of sought-after tracks that had been nearly impossible to obtain unless you were well-connected with dealers and collectors, or traveled regularly to the countless record stores in Japan. Pacific Breeze included Minako Yoshida, Taeko Ohnuki, Hiroshi Sato and Haruomi Hosono among other key players of ‘70s-’80s Japanese City Pop, the nebulous genre that encompassed an “amalgam of AOR, R&B, jazz fusion, funk, boogie and disco, all a touch dizzy with tropical euphoria,” as we described it the first time around. With Pacific Breeze 2: Japanese City Pop, AOR & Boogie 1972-1986 we dig deeper into those sounds of bubble-era Japan. From the proto-City Pop funk of Bread & Butter and Eiichi Ohtaki to the crate-digger favorites Eri Ohno and Piper, the latest entry in Light In The Attic’s Japan Archival Series brings another set of sought-after tunes, most of which have never before been available outside of Japan. Tomoko Aran and Anri, also included in this compilation, are just a few of the artists who have gained popularity in recent years thanks to Vaporwave, the meme-genre that heavily samples Japanese City Pop to create its particular aesthetic. Pacific Breeze 2 once again feature the artwork of renowned Tokyo-based illustrator Hiroshi Nagai, whose iconic images of resort living have become synonymous with City Pop. Nagai’s urban tropical imagery is a perfect match for the expertly curated tunes, evoking a certain sense of nostalgia for the leisure lifestyles of ‘70s-’80s Tokyo, while simultaneously being perfectly in tune with the current zeitgeist.) 52.00


TAPES

AURAL INDIFFERENCE - The Sound of Indifference TAPE (minimal wave - Minimal Wave is proud to present The Sound of Indifference, a rare cassette released in 1981 by Aural Indifference. Aural Indifference was a post-punk studio collective from Sydney, Australia. The two principal members were Brian Spencer Hall (the M Squared in house producer) and Kevin Purdy. The cassette album, The Sound of Indifference, was released in 1981, featuring tracks such as “Theme”, “Park, and “Man Am I Progressive”. Their sound ranges from minimal synth, to post-punk to quirky guitar-driven electronic folk music, some of it resembling John Maus. “Theme” appeared as the closing track on The Minimal Wave Tapes: Volume Two compilation and “The Park” appeared on The Bedroom Tapes compilation. Here for the first time, we are offering a reissue of the original cassette, remastered from original source tapes.) 14.00

RIXE - Baptême Du Feu 7“ (la vida - French Oi! poster boys Rixe return with EP number three. Again it's a four tracker and there is no let up in the quality. It's full of snarl, bite and anthems. Tenter Le Diable starts the onslaught with some immense tom tom work before heading into another classic Rixe Oi! pounder. Paris-Est begins with a military beat before the guttural vocals and crunching guitars come in and smash you over the head. Every part of this two minutes and 53 seconds song is precise and perfect pop. Condamné is a straight down the line Oi! smash full of hate and bile and that Rixe wall of sound we know and love already. Last cut Hécatombe is a total head nodder that has bounce and a chorus to either die for or sing-a-long to Three EPs in and Rixe continue to take Oi! to new heights. As it is a tradition on the Rixe 7” trilogy Baptême Du Feu 7" comes housed in a reverse board sleeve with collaborative artwork between Nick Rat and Maxime Smadja. Comes with lyric insert and download code.) 7.00

SIAL - Binasa 7“ (la vida - Following up on their fantastic 7-track 12” from last year, Singapore's SIAL is back with Binasa, a new 6-track 7" with a Malay title that translates to 'Perish'. Binasa sees the band pushing their cacophony of urgent and raw hardcore punk to the red. It takes cues from the likes of COMES, CONFUSE or LEBENDEN TOTEN but makes sure their ferocious sound and message doesn’t get lost in the noise. Their new release is a feast of ripping buzzsaw guitar, ferocious drumming and a vocalist spitting hate towards a racist, classist society that doesn't protect the interests of the marginalised. Recording this time around was done in their own collective studio space, Project 416 with Mastering done by Will Killingsworth and cover artwork by their drummer Izzad.) 7.00

LP

ADULT. - Perception Is/As/Of Deception LP (dias - ADULT. make a triumphant return after their 2018 album "This Behavior", dubbed "_one of the best records of their career_" by Ryan Lathan of Pop Matters. This chilling continuation takes the form of "Perception is/as/of Deception", an anxiety fueled cyclone of pandemonium that only ADULT. would know how to harness. While "This Behavior" was recorded in the isolated snowcovered woods of northern Michigan, "Perception is/as/of Deception" was given life in a temporary space the duo created by painting their windowless basement entirely black, with the sole intention to deprive their senses, question their perceptions, and witness the resulting ramifications. With over 23 years and a sprawling discography left in their wake, Adam Lee Miller and Nicola Kuperus have spent their entire career as ADULT. obscuring any defined genre or style. With a history as uncanny as ADULT., the pieces that making up "Perception is/as/of Deception" might be perceived as their most punk-infused and introspective work to date. The elements of frustration and apprehension that have consistently woven throughout their material are at full mast, although augmented by a strident and more "head-on" approach. Tracks like "Have I Started at the End" successfully maintain the duo's classic EBM signatures and synthesized aggression, cradled by a suspicious mantra that questions_.what's the point? "Why Always Why" offers a disorienting mutation of the heralded sounds of classic dance music, like a remix that escaped prison and is on the run. The dystopian anthem, "Total Total Damage", comes in full force with an frantic energy which jolts any bystanders to attention, with only the defiant chants of Kuperus' vocals outlining the ever-degenerating state of societal affairs. The dramatically glam synth parts scattered throughout the album, while at times ominous in nature, seem to also act as a merciful reminder that through the journey of "Perception is/as/of Deception", one can still enjoy the chaos. With the rampant sense of emptiness on the minds of many these days, there continues to be few attempts at scoring these common, unfortunate human qualities with pure sincerity. Thankfully, ADULT. has a long-standing reputation for creating the soundtrack for our insecurities, and "Perception is/as/of Deception" further solidifies their apprehensive position.) 23.00

THE APPLESEED CAST - the end of the ring wars DLP (thirty something - Re Issue on 180gr vinyl - Total first pressing of 500 - White w/ blue-black swirl - LTD. to 200 A stunning display of powerful emotion shines from the post-hardcore glory that defines The Appleseed Cast. The End Of The Ring Wars is a moving story about tragic loss and the battle to overcome the sorrow that lingers on. Disturbingly honest and passionately-realized, The Appleseed Cast reminds us that sometimes the only way to feel alive is to grip closely the pain that made us who we are. This record will make your heart soar. (Deep Elm Records) This is a reissue of the long out-of-print vinyl version of the bands classic debut album on Deep Elm Records.) 28.00

CAIRO FREE JAZZ ENSEMBLE - Heliopolis LP (holidays - back in stock - One of the great projects in Egyptian jazz, the Cairo Free Jazz Ensemble was formed by Salah Ragab and Hartmut Geerken as an avant-garde offshoot of the Cairo Jazz Band - the first jazz big band in the country - formed in 1968 when Ragab was appointed chief of Egypt’s Military Department of Music and had at his disposal a vast staff of musicians (almost three thousand!), an entire military building, and a full range collection of musical instruments. When encountering this recording, issued in 1970, the deep resonance found between the ensemble and its American counterparts becomes startlingly clear. Heliopolis is a stunning blend of big band spiritual jazz, the music of the Middle East, and the fire and energy of free jazz, unveiling a deep creative resonance with the contemporaneous efforts of Pharoah Sanders, Phil Cohran, and - of course - Sun Ra, combining jazz instrumentation and musical style with indigenous melodies and instruments to create a musical object with few parallels. The album is a throbbing, squealing, wild journey through the creative heights of sound channeling swirling, focused artistry that taps future and past in a single blow. Copies of the original pressing are between the rarest and most sought-after records in canon of recorded jazz. This is the first ever authorized repress released under license from Hartmut Geerken. Pressing info: 500 copies on black, 6 page foldout booklet) 20.00

EL WALI - Tiris LP (sahel - An amazing and rare studio recording of 1990s Polisario music! The album is a standout example of the Sahrawi political folk style that mixes traditional modes with Western scales and instrumentation. response vocals, The repertoire of El Wali is fiery and inspirational, a call to arms - with national anthems, celebrations of political anniversaries, and religious pleas for peace, with call and response duets, backed with a synthesizer, programmed drums, and electric guitar. Nomadic inhabitants of Western Sahara, the Sahrawi movement for liberation began in the 1970s and has continued until today. Sahrawi political folk music dates back to the origins and has played an integral role in the struggle, with political anthems creating a national identity. One of the first Saharan music to incorporate the electric guitar, the style was hugely influential on the better know Tuareg guitar genre. The later addition of synthesizer and programmed rhythms further transformed the sound, becoming a foundation of Sahrawi music. Recorded in Belgium in 1994 while on tour, this version of El Wali performed a style reflecting the popular music of the refugee camps. "Tiris" is a refreshing production with none of the typical World Music polish of the 90s. This evidently led to its unsuccessful release in the West. Originally released only in as a small run CD for OXFAM Belgium, the CD quickly disappeared and is impossible to find. In West Africa, however, it became a viral success and the defining representative Sahrawi music. In 2012 a track was released on "Music from Saharan Cellphones Vol 2" and only after an arduous search over 8 years (leading through Spain to the Canary Islands to Tindouf and eventually to Belgium) the artists, the studio, and the original recording were tracked down. A co-release with Badawi Archives, the first Sahrawi run record label led by dj/producer Bedouin Sahrawi.) 20.00

EN ATTENDANT ANA - juillet LP (trounle in mind - With the release of 'Juillet', Parisian quintet En Attendant Ana make good on the promise of their album 'Lost & Found' (2018, Trouble In Mind), diligently crafting a set of ten songs that shimmer, glide and sway with a sophistication only hinted at by their debut. Trouble In Mind is honored to present 'Juillet' exclusively to the world. Recorded by Vincent Hivert and Alexis Fugain over the course of one week at Studio Claudio, an isolated studio in rural France, "Juillet" is the sound of a band reshaping itself, adapting to numerous transitions both within the band ('Juillet' is the first recording with current guitarist Maxence Tomasso) and in life. Primary lyricist & front person Margaux Bouchaudon says "I tend to consider it as a journey towards acceptation of losses (would they be friends, lovers or dreams through death, departure or disillusion...) but also towards self respect and independence." Indeed many of the songs on "Juillet" feel hopeful, despite their melancholic tone, lacing a lilting melody or triumphant trumpet swell (courtesy of multi-instrumentalist Camille Fréchou) or charging guitar riffs from Tomasso or Bouchaudon. Famed French engineer Dominique Blanc-Francard mastered the whole affair with a deft hand, coaxing the subtleties of the mix without sacrificing its sonic whallop.

FAR - Water & Solutions LP (thiry something - Reissue of the 1998 album Water & Solutions To You, now for the first time on vinyl by one of the most influential post-hardcore / emo bands of the 90’s.) 20.00

FRIED E.M. - Modern World LP (la vida - Fortysomething years after it crawled oozing and spitting out of the social turmoil of the mid-70s, punk has mutated in countless ways, sonically, aesthetically, politically, but on Fried E/M’s Modern World they drag it back into place as brute expression of ugly feelings crammed into short catchy punk bursts, sneering at conciliatory ideals on Peace and Love with the same energy as the Clash singing Hate and War, squealing with the nihilistic urge for oblivion on Lobotomy just as the Ramones did. Four decades later, we’re still struggling with ourselves, with society, and still ready to revel in the nihilistic teenage id that splays itself out on these eleven tracks of disaffected snot. Punk as its fundamental core, panicked snaps of self-loathing and anti-social rage blasted out raw and unfiltered, bricks and voids and violence, no second thoughts, no tricky questions, sounding like the point where the initial wave of punk was being ramped up into the inchoate hardcore of Circle Jerks’s Gorup Sex, The Middle Class, or like the Ramones did an entire album of songs like Warthog. (Joe Briggs) Fried E/M hail from Missouri and are made up of many familiar faces on the Lumpy Family including the Lumpy himself on drums.) 18.00

FUSE - This Segregation Will End LP (qchc - “Lion City Hardcore. "This Segregation will end" a 9-song 12" EP created by FUSE from Singapore is 100% hardcore concentrate. I don't need to mention similar sounding bands, influences or FFO type shit. FUSE bring a contemporary stab at a classic style while injecting their own unique worldview. You've heard hardcore like this before, you like hardcore like this, self described as "punked up hardcore, hard but not like those tough guy hardcore bands", they produce 8 songs and an intro that are worth your time (personal favorite is "Poison"). Music aside, because hardcore is so much more than what you play, it's how you play, and more importantly it's the reasons why you play. The Extracurriculars - FUSE never miss an opportunity to shout out their local scene, they put energy into building up their hometown, and they support their peers. Bottom line, they fucking care about creating their own space for themselves and their friends and that's all I want in a hardcore band.” John Scharbach, Give & Shining Life Press  FUSE formed as a 5 piece in 2017 and released a 2 song promo tape the same year. It's 2020 and they return with a new drummer to deliver 7 new songs in addition to "Poison" and "Deceit" from their 2017 promo. This masterpiece was recorded at 416 studios, mixed to perfection by Tom Howard and mastered by Will Killingsworth. The record is rounded out with art and layout by the infamous Nicky Rat.  FFO: Warzone, Floorpunch, The Rival Mob, Restraining Order) 18.00

HERR PAULSEN UND DAS ZEITPROBLEM - II LP (tanz auf Ruinen - zweite LP - Kommt auf orangenem Vinyl) 12.00

JAMES ELKINGTON - Ever-Roving Eye LP (Chicago songwriter and guitarist James Elkington—who has collaborated with everyone from Richard Thompson to Jeff Tweedy to Tortoise—recorded his sophomore album at Wilco’s Loft, expanding upon his celebrated 2017 debut Wintres Woma (PoB-034) as well as his recent production and arrangement work for the likes of Steve Gunn, Nap Eyes, and Joan Shelley. Casting glances back to British folk traditions as well as toward avant-garde horizons, these brilliant new songs, as accessible as they are arcane, buttress Elkington’s brisk guitar figures and baritone poesy with strings, woodwinds, and backing vocals by Tamara Lindeman of the Weather Station.) 24.00

KONSTRUKT - Oryantal LP (holidays - Istanbul based multi-instrumentalist Umut Çağlar founded the Turkish free jazz band Konstrukt at the beginning of 2008. Since then the band went through many line-up changes and collaborated with with the likes of Peter Brötzmann, Joe McPhee, William Parker and Keiji Haino, continuously evolving its sound. The band is currently formed by Çağlar, Korhan Futacı, Apostolos Sideris, Erdem Göymen and Berkan Tilavel and this EP - recorded at Hayyam Studio in Istanbul in 2017 with two drummers and a double bass player on board - shows a more melodic and groovy side of the band. The session explores their rhythmic roots with the use of traditional instruments such as bendirs, tefs and double reeds, trying to carry these sounds to the future with the help of electronics.) 18.00

LOS CRUDOS - Discografia DLP (la vida - Euro Press. The complete discography from beloved hardcore powerhouse LOS CRUDOS. Seventy-four tracks of energetic and political punk rock that pulls no punches as the band takes on themes of racism, Latino issues, revolution, and more. Searing, scathing, and scorched. Pressed on black vinyl with poster and lyrics booklet.) 23.00

MASTERPIECE MACHINE - Rotting Fruit / Letting You In On a Secret LP (qchc - Members of Fucked Up and Power Trip have coalesced to create the throbbing musical beast that is Masterpiece Machine. Imagine pounding the drum of Psalm-era Ministry with flashes of Nine Inch Nails, massive rock riffs, cinematic electronics, and post-hardcore influenced vocals. Rotting Fruit b/w Letting You In On A Secret is their debut 12” single. In this chaotic world, industrial influenced music seems more relevant than ever as it channels the unstoppable wheels of a mutating mass of electronic and biological matter lurching towards an unknown destination. Singer Riley’s love of comics led to a collaboration with celebrated comic artist and animator Lale Westvind, known for critically acclaimed works such as Grip, Hot Dog Beach and Hyperspeed to Nowhere. Lale’s art for Rotting Fruit/Letting You In On A Secret perfectly captures the aforementioned musical qualities as technological chimeras made up of biological matter cruise a desert landscape seemingly without purpose, while simultaneously racing towards the future head on.) 18.00

RAT CAGE - Screams From The Cage LP (la vida - Like a steel girder to the forehead, incomes SCREAMS FROM THE CAGE. 19 minutes of brutally up front and relentlessly rowdy hardcore punk, that slams a firm British stamp on the classic Swedish Hardcore blueprint. This wrecking ball sits somewhere between the 80’s Hudiksvall sounds of MISSBRUKARNA, the damaged NO FUTURE confessions of THE PARTISANS and the sheer rock and roll audacity of the SKITKIDS. Back to back riffs that'll stick to your brain like the glue at the bottom of your bag and steaming drums blasts that’ll plough through your skull like a juggernaut driven by a maniac high on amphetamine. Mylo Oxlo provides the artwork once again, perfectly capturing the claustrophobic animosity of the Rat’s latest 12 song romp and rampage. Fittingly dropping on the year of the Rat while the Tory’s take a strangle hold of the U.K for another 4 years. Hold onto your seat, feel the burn and don’t you dare turn this fucker down.) 18.00

RIXE - Collection LP (la vida - Collection neatly compiles RIXE's first 3 Eps on one album. All 12 cuts have been remastered for maximum volume. Rixe appeared from nowhere and went from strength to strength over the two years since the Debut EP Coup Et Blessures was released in February 2015. The EP was their calling card and harked back to the glory years of Bologna's finest Nabat mixed with the classic 80's French Oi! sound. It was instant and loved by all and went on to have six pressings. A year later came Les Nerf A Vif - another four tracker with extra bite and bile. Every track was perfectly recorded and produced. Lean with snarl and each track a nugget of anthemic Oi!. On third EP Bapteme Du Feu there was no let up in quality. Precision Oi! with a pop element that’s built to be loved now and in 20 years. Joined together the 3 EPs make a perfect album and proof that why RIxe are Oi! royalty in 2017.) 18.00

SIAL - Tari Pemusnah Kuasa LP (la vida - Singapore's SIAL return with another wave of destruction and their 3rd release on LVEUM. They've truly found the perfect balance of melody, noise and aggression while still putting great emphasis on the political aspect of hardcore punk that's always spitting hate towards the power that corrupts. The music and song writing can be somewhat ambiguous to some listeners who have devoted their life to the classic raw hardcore punk format, but this record shouldn't be left out- it carries the same cathartic punk experience. References point being THE COMES, LEBENDEN TOTEN or Perdition era DISORDER. SIAL has always been using strong malay metaphors and proverbs in their lyrics, and more in this release to stress how important the Malay language is to them in expressing a structure that is broken in this modern capitalistic world. 'Tari Pemusnah Kuasa', which translates to 'The Revolt Dance' or ' Dance of The Power Crusher', delivers a sense of mysticism and empowerment. This uncompromising attitude is what we need in these trying times.) 18.00

SIAL - Sial LP (la vida - Hailing from South East Asia, Singapore, SIAL's blistering abrasive, loud and primitive sounding hardcore encompasses exactly what it is to be Sial! (DAMNED in English) A swear word in Bahasa Melayu (Malay), SIAL sings in the language of Singapore's indigenous minority, and challenge a culture and language generally said to be gentle and polite. Commonly described as an idle and passive people until the colonisation of Singapore by the British, SIAL takes back a power stripped away by centuries of imperialism and lies. Their hardcore takes props from the ferocity of early DISORDER output mixed with a singer who without doubt has had COMES debut album on repeat or even DIRT's early single on CRASS. Their rhythm section works relentlessly to create a mix of mid 90’s Japanese crasher crust and second wave UK punk creating one of the most powerful records we've heard in a long time. SIAL's debut record comes housed in a heavy reverse-board sleeve and includes a lyric insert and download code.) 18.00

TERYKY - Overcome LP (hasiok - The debut album of the Post Metal 4-piece TERYKY from Hamburg contains 24 minutes of dark and dense atmosphere. 'Somewhere between abyss and sunrise', that's how the band would describe their music. Gloomy riffs and energetic blast beats, driven by powerful screams are alternating with melancholic and tranquil elements. Overcome is darkness and beauty, it is anger and sadness.) 13.00

VILE SPIRIT - Scorched Earth LP (qchc - Scorched Earth marks the long awaited debut LP from the UK’s ultimate misfit squad, Vile Spirit. After well loved demo and promo tapes, Scorched Earth marks a major step up in terms of musical landscape and craft as members have sharpened their teeth touring Europe and being active members of the UK hardcore punk scene. Somehow they have managed to sew together influences such as United Mutation, Integrity and Black Metal into a noisy mass of hard as hell tunes with fuzzed out guitars burning your ear drums whilst being punched to death by relentlessly rolling drums excelling at unpredictable rhythmical directions. Meanwhile mid-tempo songs like Going Home march along, snarling in the darkness, creating an atmospheric backdrop for those who prefer to awaken at night. Vocalist Ben summons a cynical view of the world, conjuring tales of the survival of mankind and a contempt for the world. Bursting onto the UK hardcore punk scene three years ago the members have never ceased to play in and create numerous bands such as Gutter Knife, Saliva, and Chubby and the Gang. They originally formed part of the new generation of Brighton punks re-energising the scene there alongside bands like State Funeral, Never and label mates Imposter, whilst members finished high school or started University. Joining the band on second guitar is Rory O’Neill, singer of Imposter, and responsible for the artwork on Scorched Earth. Enjoy, and be damned upon the scorched Earth) 18.00


TAPES

AUSTIN LUCAS - The Common Cold TAPE (hasiok - The first full length release from Austin Lucas from 2006.) 7.00

AUSTIN LUCAS - Putting The Hammer Down TAPE (hasiok - Putting The Hammer Down is Austin’s North American debut for Magic Bullet Records. On it, you’ll find 8 songs harkening the rich heritage and tradition of great American country and folk music past, rounded out by the strong DIY ethic and punk progressiveness that played a large part in shaping both artist and label over the years. In the end, you’re left with an album that reaches across generational and genre lines in a way that few artists could ever dream of or hope for.) 7.00

CONSTANT COLD WAR - s/t TAPE (New Postpunk outfit from the streets of Berlin. Joy Divisions meets The Mob.) 6.00

DRIP OF LIES - Hell TAPE (hasiok - 5 years since their last split release and 7 long years since their acclaimed debut “Failure”, one of the bleakest Polish metallic / dark hardcore exports, DRIP OF LIES’ live performance status hasn’t been in question, but left us longing for some new recordings.) 6.00

TERYKY - Avalanche TAPE ("TERYKY come from Hamburg and consist of 4 musicians who do not see the world in bright colours. And this is reflected in their music as well. Slow or very slow, dark or very dark, sad or very sad. The record takes you from calm and quiet guitar riffs to outbursts of anger and misanthropy that slowly build a structure of trance. Add ominous vocals that shout the lyrics on being lost in this world full of hopelessness and you get the ferocious, gruesome and grisly story of our fall. Contrast this with the current pandemic situation and you should be looking for a razor.“) 6.00

LP

BARNABUS - beginning to unwind DLP (rise above - Barnabus were a band from the West Midlands/Warwickshire region of the UK, who were active between the years 1970-1973. During that they built up a local reputation and recorded an album of heavy-duty material in late 1971, which has never seen the light of day until now! Apart from a handful of acetates being made up and distributed to family & friends, Beginning to Unwind has remained an unreleased album for all this. After several years of extensive research, Rise Above Relics is delighted to bring you this underground heavy 70s monster, painstakingly remastered from the original analogue tapes, which have been carefully baked for optimal reproduction. In their day, Barnabus were actually given the seal of approval by none other than the dark princes of Doom themselves: Ozzy Osbourne and Tony Iommi, when they judged them winners in the regional heat of a national competition for legendary British Music paper, Melody Maker, in 1972!) 25.00

BEATRIZ FERREYRA - Huellas Entreveradas LP (Original GRM member Beatriz Ferreyra deploys a gripping trio of concrète works spanning 40 years (1977-2007) and revealing some of her most mysterious, freeform and otherworldly work comparable to Schaeffer and Parmegiani, but with a poetic playfulness of her own “Beatriz Ferreyra has been at the forefront of electroacoustic music composition since 1963 when she joined the Groupe de Recherches Musicales as one of Pierre Schaeffer’s research assistants. She is one of very few composers still performing who was instrumental at the beginning of Schaeffer’s theories of sound objects and reduced listening techniques. She continues to compose commissioned works and perform around the world in a career that has spanned some sixty years. From the 1960s until 1997 Beatriz composed tape pieces for multi-speaker performance using three or four Revox reel-to-reel tape machines at each concert. She now works on Pro Tools with GRM plug-ins but still uses the Revoxes for certain tape techniques that can’t be achieved with computer software. Beatriz discusses her music in the Schaefferian way, as a series of impulsions [sharp attacks], iteratives [repetitions], percutés [percussive hits], and trames [sustains] whilst also using her own onomatopoeic descriptions such as ‘schkllang, prrrrwip, ferrrwisssssh, takatak’ communicating sounds freely and directly as she hears them. Her music is about movement; the movement of sounds around a performance space, or the positioning of sounds as point sources within the illusory stereo field between loudspeakers. It is also about movement within individual sounds, where each one is a composition of different shifting components and a ‘little structure’ in its own right, with its own character. She likens her sounds to a Russian doll, inside each is another one, which contains another, and so on. During her time at Schaeffer’s studios, Beatriz developed her own research project, Objets Construits, (constructed objects). These are layers of short sounds, chords made of different noises. Each layer is isolated on a separate piece of tape to analyse the relationships between components and the effect of minimal alterations in pitch, dynamics or timing, to the overall perception of the chord. This was a way of thinking about sound slowly and patiently, of taking time to experiment, analyse and contemplate each manipulation, that is lost in the speedy world of vast ready-made digital sound libraries and the immediacy of save and recall buttons. In Beatriz’s work, small, playful sounds interact like chattering creatures and merge into vast cavernous and mysterious immersive landscapes. These three signature pieces use snippets of speech which are gradually deconstructed to create abstract textures, interweaving vocals with percussive and sustained sounds. Small, playful sounds interact like chattering creatures and merge into vast cavernous and mysterious immersive landscapes. La Baballe du Chien Chien [The doggie’s little ball] (2001) is a playful take on the way that we speak in a childlike way to pets. A brief narrative at the start invites the listener into this ‘pet speak’ scene, with the sound of footsteps and chatter. These gradually crescendo and morph into a cacophonous swirling explosion. Deux Dents Dehors [two teeth sticking out] (2007) is a pun on Bernard Parmegiani’s piece Dedans Dehors [Inside Outside] (1977), composed for his birthday. It takes snippets of lively vernacular and processes these into complex patterns of unintelligible and unrecognisable speech, in sustained or percussive sequences and glissandi. Heullas Entreveradas (2018) is a new commission that transforms vocal sounds into choral textures which fragment, granulate and transform into continuous whorls and tidal washes interspersed with her trademark short silences.”) 27.00

BEATRICE DILLON - Workaround LP (PAN - back ins tock - Workaround’ is the lucidly playful and ambitious solo debut album by rhythmobsessive musician and DJ, Beatrice Dillon for PAN. It combines her love of UK club music’s syncopated suss and Afro-Caribbean influences with a gamely experimental approach to modern composition and stylistic fusion, using inventive sampling and luminous mixing techniques adapted from modern pop to express fresh ideas about groove-driven music and perpetuate its form with timeless, future-proofed clarity. Recorded over 2017-2019 between studios in London, Berlin and New York, ‘Workaround’ renders a hypnotic series of polymetric permutations at a fixed 150bpm tempo. Mixing meticulous FM synthesis and harmonics with crisply edited acoustic samples from a wide range of guests including UK Bhangra pioneer Kuljit Bhamra (tabla); Pharoah Sanders Band’s Jonny Lam (pedal steel guitar); techno innovators Laurel Halo (synth/vocal) and Batu (samples); Senegalese Griot Kadialy Kouyaté (Kora), Hemlock’s Untold and new music specialist Lucy Railton (cello); amongst others, Dillon deftly absorbs their distinct instrumental colours and melody into 14 bright and spacious computerised frameworks that suggest immersive, nuanced options for dancers, DJs and domestic play. ‘Workaround’ evolves Dillon’s notions in a coolly unfolding manner that speaks directly to the album’s literary and visual inspirations, ranging from James P. Carse’s book ‘Finite And Infinite Games’ to the abstract drawings of Tomma Abts or Jorinde Voigt as well as painter Bridget Riley’s essays on grids and colour. Operating inside this rooted but mutable theoretical wireframe, Dillon’s ideas come to life as interrelated, efficient patterns in a self-sufficient system.) 25.00

CATHEDRAL - Freak Winter DLP re issue (rise above - Freak Winter was recorded live in London on December 23rd 2010, as part of Cathedral’s 20th Anniversary concert. It features a setlist of favourites performed to mark the dark celebration of their illustrious career up to that point. The double album comes housed in a gatefold sleeve, featuring exclusive artwork by long-time Cathedral collaborator and acclaimed artist, Dave Patchett) 25.00

CATHEDRAL - Return to the Forest DLP rei issue (rise above - Return to the Forest was recorded live in London on December 23rd 2010, as part of Cathedral’s 20th Anniversary concert. For this event, the original line-up that recorded the milestone 1991 Doom Metal album, Forest of Equilibrium, re-united for a one-off performance of the album. It was the one and only time this album has been performed live in its entirety, which was thankfully recorded onto multitrack and mixed by Jaime Gomez Arellano. The double album comes housed in a gatefold sleeve, featuring exclusive artwork by long-time Cathedral collaborator and acclaimed artist, Dave Patchett) 25.00

CYCLE - cosmic clouds DLP (rise above - Cycle were a very popular progressive hard rock band from the Northeast of England, who performed locally between 1970-1975. During that time they recorded two full length albums, the first of which (recorded in 1971) was privately pressed by the band in a quantity of less than 100 copies, without artwork. These were distributed amongst friends, fans, family and sent to various publishers, record companies, promoters and record companies. The album is now a major want on many serious collector’s lists, values at £1,500-2,000 for an original white label copy. In 1973, they self-financed the recording of a second album, though this wasn’t released at all (until now). After several years of intensive research, Rise Above Relics is delighted to bring you this fully authorised release, featuring all of Cycle’s studio output, including their final two track demo from 1975. All recordings have been painstakingly restored to the highest spec possible. The CD edition comes with a 40-page booklet, outlining the history of the band with tons of photos and flyers from the band member’s personal archive. Cycle were, without doubt, a truly excellent band during the underground progressive era of the early 70s. There is no denying that they should have received wider recognition and a proper recording contract. Although very much a band of their time, Cycle combined the heaviness of Black Sabbath with the cosmic vibes of Hawkwind. Cosmic Clouds is a truly obscure cult artefact from the golden age of underground British hard rock.) 25.00

EMPTYSET - blossoms LP (thrill jockey - Emptyset, the duo of James Ginzburg and Paul Purgas, are tireless innovators at the vanguard of electronic music. Over the course of the last decade the duo have consistently applied new and inventive compositional tools to create art that is both unique and poignant. Blossoms focuses on ideas of evolution and adaptation, bringing together Emptyset’s body of exploratory sound production with emerging methods of machine learning and raw audio synthesis. Blossoms was generated entirely from the output of a neural network based artificial intelligence system. Developed over eighteen months through conversations with an international network of programmers working at the cutting edge of sound synthesis, Emptyset arrived at a system powerful and intelligent enough to create original complex structures of audio. Blossoms explores the dissonance between organic processes and machine learning principles, creating unsettling and uncanny sonics that give voice to non-human intelligence. Taking inspiration from cybernetics and literature, the album allowed Emptyset to further their explorations into generative composition and elemental aspects of sound, creating a system that was both inspiring and disconcerting in its behavior and results - opening up vast new possibilities and sonic worlds whilst simultaneously collapsing their previous methods of production.) 21.00

FOTOCRIME - South Of Heaven LP (profound lore - The new FOTOCRIME (the new dark wave project of R. Patterson from acclaimed hardcore punk band Coliseum) full-length album "South Of Heaven", the second full-length chapter in the project?s narrative, FOTOCRIME has found comfort on the fringe. "South Of Heaven" is the backlit highway slithering from 2018's "Principle Of Pain", which bowed at the altar of post-street punks Blitz while nodding at the megawatt gleam of Depeche Mode and churn of Red Lorry Yellow Lorry. The stories comprising "South of Heaven" are winding and boundless, unfolding with unexpected paths and hairpin turns. Touching the myths of Saturn and Phaethon and mining the lives of Bruno Ganz and Francis Bacon, the album carves a landscape that spans both earthly and astral planes. It is a record for late night drives, a soundtrack for headlights illuminating the horizon.  Produced by J. Robbins (Jawbox) with sessions recorded by legendary engineer Steve Albini (Shellac, Big Black, Nirvana etc) at Electrical Audio in Chicago, "South Of Heaven" features guest apperances by Hayden Menzies (Metz), Nick Thieneman (Young Widows), Janet Morgan (Channels), Erik Denno (Kerosene 454), and Rob Moran (Unbroken) and continues with a swim in the open wounds and spilt blood of heartbreak, a harp-tinged appeal for care and company, and a postmortem of derailed destinies.  Crackling guitars and stutter stepping synth making songs on here bona-fide grunge-wave burners.) 25.00

FRANCOISE HARDY - Mon Amie La Rose LP (audo clarini - Received a 7.6 rating from Pitchfork. Between 1962 and 1966, FRANCOISE HARDY released one French-language album per year. Each, strictly speaking, was eponymously titled and each was collected from a series of contemporary four-track, seven-inch, picture-sleeve EPs–pop music’s main format in France, known as le super 45. In them, we see the maturing of one of the decade’s most singular talents—a pop singer with the heart of a chanteuse, a singer-songwriter in an age before such a thing was known, and a style icon who valued privacy and modesty. Remastered from the original tapes, Future Days presents the first five Françoise Hardy albums in their original French format, on deluxe LP and CD.  Following the French success of 1962’s Tous Les Garçons Et Les Filles and 1963’s Le Premier Bonheur Du Jour, 1964 was the year Hardy went truly international. Having competed in the Eurovision Song Contest and acted in a Roger Vadim film, this was the year Dylan dedicated a poem to her on the sleeve of Another Side and the year she ventured to Britain to record English language songs for the first time.  Hardy’s first three French EPs of the year, from which just “Pourtant Tu M’aimes” appears on Mon Amie La Rose, were largely recorded on home soil with Paris-based arranger Mickey Baker. After the third, Françoise changed tack, abandoned French studios and arrangers, and headed to London’s Pye Studios. She would not record again in France until 1968, instead employing a series of British producers and musicians that even included then-studio guitarist Jimmy Page.) 20.00

I LIKE TO SLEEP - Daymare LP (rune grammofon - Taking their name from a Thelonious Monk quote, I Like To Sleep are three young Norwegian musicians, all 22 years old. "Nicolas and Øyvind first met in high school in Trondheim before they joined up with Amund in a youth big band. It soon became apparent that they shared the same musical background centered around 70s progressive rock, jazz, improvisation and classical music. Soon after the trio was formed, first for fun, but soon with higher ambitions, they won the prestigious "Young Jazz Musicians of the Year" award in 2018.  "Daymare" is the trio´s second album, their debut was released on the All Good Clean Records label in 2017. While their debut showed a lot of quality and promise, their new effort is a huge step forward on all accounts, especially considering their young age. The lazy way would be to place I Like To Sleep with certain other Rune Grammofon "power jazz" groups, but their unique instrumentation (vibraphone, baritone guitar and drums), natural openness and youthful curiosity place them apart from the rest. A truly original trio!“) 26.00

NYX NOTT - Au Pieds De La Nuit LP + 7“ (melodic - Meet Nyx Nott, the new guise of Aidan Moffatt... “I’d work on it when everyone else at home was in bed,” says Aidan Moffat of his latest musical project as Nyx Nótt. “I don't sleep very well and I'm very much a nighthawk, so the music I made was naturally nocturnal.” The essence of night and Moffat’s moonlit tinkerings became such a prominent role in the creative process that his new alias had to reflect this too. “I originally planned to release the album anonymously and tried to think of a convincing, exotic name that suited the nocturnal themes of the album. Nyx and Nótt are two mythical goddesses of night, Nyx from the Greek and Nótt from old Norse.” The album title translates as "At the Feet of Night", so this is an album not simply of, or from, the night, but an ode to it - a sonic worshipping of the night’s pull and allure. Crepuscular music. The result is an album that pulses like the quiet hum of night; the production is clear and crisp with every movement, note and sound augmented with stark clarity - like the amplified sound of a creaking floorboard as you move through the house in darkness. It’s a deeply percussive album, resulting in gentle rhythms that often give way to moments of real stillness and tenderness that stem from the rich orchestration and composition - one that glides from strings to brass to quietly purring electronics. The album moves through jazz, ambient and electronic to result in something that sounds like it might be a score to Moffat’s dreams. “It’s made with samples, sound effects, keyboards, and the occasional toy,” says Moffat. “All but one of the tracks started with drums – I'd been collecting jazz drum samples and sessions for a while and I would layer a few kits on top of each other to create rhythms, then add music and samples from there.”) 25.00

OKKYUNG LEE - Yeo-Neun LP (shelter - Springing from a decades deep body of work, defined by a rigorously singular and adventurous approach to sound, cellist, composer, and improvisor, Okkyung Lee, returns with Yeo-Neun, her first outing with Shelter Press, and arguably her most groundbreaking and unexpected album to date. A vital, present force in the contemporary global landscape of experimental music, Okkyung Lee is widely regarded for her solo and collaborative improvisations and compositions, weaving a continuously evolving network of sonority and event, notable for its profound depth of instrumental sensitivity, exacting intellect, and visceral emotiveness. Yeo-Neun, recorded by Yeo-Neun Quartet - an experimental chamber music ensemble founded in 2016 and led by Lee on cello, featuring harpist Maeve Gilchrist, pianist Jacob Sacks, and bassist Eivind Opsvik - represents the culmination of one of longest and most intimate arcs in her remarkable career. A radical departure from much of the experimental language for which she has become widely known, it is equally a fearless return. Yeo-Neun loosely translates to the gesture of an opening in Korean, presenting window into the poetic multiplicity that rests at the album’s core. Balanced at the outer reaches of Lee’s radically forward thinking creative process, its 10 discrete works are born of the ambient displacement of musician’s life; intimate melodic constructions and deconstructions that traces their roots across the last 30 years, from her early days spent away from home studying the cello in Seoul and Boston, to her subsequent move to New York and the nomadism of a near endless routine of tours. At its foundation, lay glimpses of a once melancholic teen, traces of the sentimentality and sensitivity (감성 / Gahmsung) that underpins the Korean popular music of Lee’s youth, and an artist for whom the notions of time, place, and home have become increasingly complex. Elegantly binding modern classical composition and freely improvised music with the emotive drama of Korean traditional music and popular ballads, the expanse of Yeo-Neun pushes toward the palpably unknown, as radical for what it is and does, as it for its approachability. In Lee’s hands, carried by a body of composition that rests beyond the prescriptive boundaries of culture, genre, geography, and time, a vision of the experimental avant-garde emerges as a music of experience, humanity, and life. Meandering melodies, from the deceptively simple to the tonally and structurally complex, slowly evolve and fall from view, the harp, piano, and bass forming an airy, liminal non-place, through which Lee’s cello and unplaceable memories freely drift. Remarkably honest, unflinchingly beautiful, and creatively challenging, Shelter Press is proud to present Yeo-Neun, an album that takes one the most important voices in contemporary experimental music, Okkyung Lee, far afield into an unknown future, bound to her past. Mastered and cut by Rashad Becker, housed in reversed-board printed inner and outer sleeve with artwork by American photographer Ron Jude. ) 25.00

OLD MAN GLOOM - Seminar IX: Darkness Of Being LP (profound lore - The new OLD MAN GLOOM album "Darkness Of Being" (aka Seminar XI) sees the notorious experimental super-group forge on their legacy after a slight suspension in uncertainty following the passing of bassist/vocalist Caleb Scofield.  It was decided that the remaining members Aaron Turner (Sumac/Isis), Nate Newton (Converge), and drummer Santos Montano would continue to forge on with OLD MAN GLOOM and would bring in Scofield's former Cave In bandmate, Stephen Brodsky, to take Caleb's place amongst the pulse. "Darkness Of Being" continues OLD MAN GLOOM?s shenanigans following their "Ape Of God" albums (the albums where the band trolled everyone by releasing two different albums with the same album title amongst bewilderment, amusement, and outrage from people on the internet).  Through monolithic sonic tapestries sewn throughout, "Darkness Of Being" blossoms as a moving tribute to Scofield where the band have even incorporated material that Scofield had laid down previously for new OMG music.  "Darkness Of Being", which was recorded and mixed by three acclaimed heavy music producers, namely Matt Bayles, Kurt Ballou, and Randall Dunn, is another towering OLD MAN GLOOM masterwork through earth crumbling riffs, post-hardcore brutality, sprawling noise transmissions, experimental ambient sonic subdivisions and epic impenetrable melancholy.) 25.00

OLD TOWER - The Last Eidolon DLP (profound - The third album by the enigmatic Old Tower titled “The Last Eidolon” tells a sombre story of a kingdom laid to waste by its own creator through the corruption of dark magic and possession of destructive spirits. Because of wrongful decisions, spiritual rebellion and the misuse of ancient yet dangerous practices these malevolent forces started to turn against the enchanter. And so fell his once proud and powerful dominion. What was once great has now been reduced to a hollow manifestation of its old self. The long and weary process of reclaiming its former glory has begun... Throughout the “Grim Alchemy” trilogy, smithed in conspiracy with the mighty Hospital Productions, The Specter meticulously crafted his own style of medieval dark ambient. “The Last Eidolon” is an elongation but also a new direction of this concept and will take the listener on a desolate journey spanning three, long chapters. Faded memories of a dark past will shimmer in and out of existence throughout these epic compositions yet the energy of renewal is flowing from the fountains of the old kingdom. Profound Lore is proud to present the album on this earthly plane in two different editions. “The Last Eidolon” will come on luxurious double vinyl and compact disc formats and comes with extensive artwork, all richly illustrated and curated by The Specter himself. To get the full effect of these spells they were mixed and mastered by Arthur, the Eternal Champion.) 40.00

PERFUME GENIUS - Set My Heart On Fire Immediately DLP (matador - Set My Heart On Fire Immediately is the fifth studio album from Perfume Genius on Matador Records. It sees artist and musician Mike Hadreas re-teaming with GRAMMY-nominated producer Blake Mills and features contributions from musicians Jim Keltner, Pino Palladino and Matt Chamberlin. It was recorded in Los Angeles, where Perfume Genius settled in 2017 with longtime partner and musical collaborator Alan Wyffels. The album explores and subverts concepts of masculinity and traditional roles, and introduces decidedly American musical influences. Throughout Hadreas plays with themes of love, sex, memory and the body, channeling popular music mythologies while irreverently authoring its own – from the delirious, Cyndi Lauper-nodding celebratory pop of ‘On The Floor’, specters of Elvis on haunted tremolo waltz ‘One More Try’, to the harpsichord- punctuated baroque pop of ‘Jason’, and gliding steel guitar and Balearic rhythm of ‘Without You’. “I wanted to feel more open, more free and spiritually wild,” says Hadreas, “and I’m in a place now where those feelings are very close-- but it can border on being unhinged. I wrote these songs as a way to be more patient, more considered -- to pull at all these chaotic threads hovering around me and weave them in to something warm, thoughtful and comforting.” First album taster ‘Describe’ captures this sense of fleetingness and living in the moment through a heavy fog of grizzly distortion and tumbling slide guitars: “It started as a really somber ballad. It was very minimal and very slow. And then it turned into this beast of a song. I started writing that about when you are in such a dark place that you don’t even remember what goodness is or what anything feels like. And so, the idea was having someone describe that to you, because you forgot or can’t get to it.” Its accompanying video, self-directed by Hadreas, envisions “an end of the world where there are no boundaries, there are no edges, no rules, or the rules are completely new with how you interact with each other and the space around you.”) 25.00

V/A - Behind The Wall - The Record DLP (spittle - Life behind the Berlin Wall, before the fall. Once there was DDR (Deutsche Demokratische Republik), otherwise known as East Germany. Verging on the ruins of the 2nd world war, in the fog of the socialist utopia, there was a widespread scene fighting against corporations and restrictions. Die neuen Bands, that was the manifesto, a number of small alternative bands facing the efforts of the post-punk (and even post-industrial) revolution. This was happening right after the English new wave or the Neue Deutsche Welle (the western counterpart). A musical resistance, a counterculture, spreading all over the country the clandestine way. An enduring dangerous strategy that brought to life many artistic figures, way ahead of their time. Such is the case of Frank Bretschneider (Stein im Brett, Kriminelle Tanzkapelle) still one of the most prolific glitch producers (founder of the influential imprint Rastermusic), Ornament & Verbrechen the east-Berlin combo run by brothers Ronald e Robert Lippok (To Rococo Rot) and Reinhard Lakomy a true innovator in the vein of Klaus Schulze. The ghost of an era, a social turmoil that eventually had an impact on our daily routine.) 26.00

V/A - Tracce Magnetiche DLP (spittle - Searching for new languages beyond the bitter and nihilist dialect of punk, bands like Gaz Nevada, Litfiba, CCCP, Diaframma, Neon, and many others, began spreading their message all along the Italian peninsula during the early eighties and many of the members of these bands are now some of the best musicians / producers in the Italian independent music panorama (Giovanni Lindo Ferretti, Piero Pelù/Litfiba, Bisca, etc.). 16 tracks by 16 Italian underground bands from 1982-1984: bands who faded into oblivion before ever releasing anything of their own on vinyl. It should, however, be stated that if these sixteen bands had been found on an album, EP or single, they certainly would not have lowered the average quality of albums in that genre…not even in terms of sound quality, which has actually been improved upon here (considering that the original tapes had been lying around collecting dust for at least a quarter of a century) by careful restoration.) 25.00


CD

OLD TOWER - Stellary Wisdom CD (profound lore - OLD TOWER is the creation of a mysterious entity from The Netherlands known as The Specter who, through the vessel of OLD TOWER, creates alluring yet meditative otherworldly lo-fi synth music that transports the listener to a long forgotten age of memory’s past. OLD TOWER started in the summer of 2015 with the first recordings being rather minimalistic and primitive. It was through the split with Orodruin when the concept of OLD TOWER and The Shadow Kingdom came into existence and since then, OLD TOWER has collected an alluring repertoire through split-cassette releases and cassette EPs that culminated with the first OLD TOWER full-length "The Rise Of The Specter" released early 2017. The whole concept surrounding OLD TOWER and The Shadow Kingdom is that they are both very personal projects. In an age where a lot of “dungeon synth” is just dull fantasy music without too much thought behind it, this is not the case with OLD TOWER. OLD TOWER is a reflection of The Specter’s personal inner world and experiences in real life. The Shadow Kingdom can be seen as a dimension, a metaphor for the world that everyone experiences, but cannot see or do not want to feel; the solitude and darkness that resides in us all. OLD TOWER is a resistance towards modernity and the shallow values which our society is built upon. The visions that are formed when consuming the sounds of OLD TOWER are that of mystical desolate landscapes, majestic ancient ruins, deep dark decrepit dungeons, murky chambers, and ghostly moonlit forests. Meditative audial spells dedicated to the eternal dark war. ) 16.00

BOOKS

ELIANE RADIGUE & JULIA ECKHARDT - Intermediary Spaces / Espaces Intermédiaires BOOK (Éliane Radigue is considered one of the most innovative and influential contemporary composers from her early electronic music through to her acoustic work of the last 15 years. Influenced by musique concrète and shaped by regular sojourns in the United States where she discovered analogue synthesizers, her work unfolds an intensity which is at once subtle and monumental. Through her deep reflections on sound and listening, not only her music but also her working methods have come to shape a widely resonating set of new parameters for working with sound as musical material. In the long interview that forms the body of this publication Radigue talks about her work, her reflections and underlying research as well as her historical context. The publication also contains an annotated list of works and Radigue’s programmatic text on “The Mysterious Power Of The Infinitesimal”. Edited by Julia Eckhardt with texts by Éliane Radigue and Julia Eckhardt. With 62 black and white illustrations. Julia Eckhardt is a musician and curator in the field of the sonic arts. She is a founding member and artistic director of Q-O2 workspace in Brussels for which she conceptualised various thematic research projects. As a performer of composed and improvised music she has collaborated with numerous artists and extensively with Éliane Radigue. She has performed internationally and released a number of recordings. She has been lecturing about topics such as sound, gender and public space and is (co-)author of The Second Sound, Conversation On Gender and Music, Grounds For Possible Music, and The Middle Matter, Sound As Interstice.) 22.00
