... on (or around) october 1st, i will be switching over to an entirely new (and entirely functional ; apologies for all the strange bevahior on the site a/o recent ... the breakdown of our long-suffering shopping cart within an hour of the last update going out was the final straw) iteration / implementation of the decade-old mms retail site ...

... everything currently listed on the "closeout" section will not be surviving the journey to the new server / site, which means you have approximately 2 weeks in which to make your final final selections from said before they're cast into the void, never to return ...

... this is your last last chance at ownership of the thousands of fantastic titles on offer therein, which have been marked down essentially to cost ; final final warning !!!

... and here we land again (a little more timely than last year, so there's that) ....

of the 1,092 titles (that's just the slimmest hair under 3-per-day ; not bad) we took responsibility for throughout 2010, the listings below represent what we feel are the best-of-the-best ; the titles that did very well for us, the ones that didn't (despite our enthusiasm & unilateral proselytizing on their behalf), the ones that raised the bar in terms of sound / design / concept, the ones that crept into our collective consciousness, the ones that became earworms & memes (geoff, literally, every single day, could be caught singing "i'm a zeven inch zingle" at some point throughout) ... i.e. the good stuff ...

for the first time this year, we both decided to do separate lists on top of what we were feeling of the mms-stocked stuff ; just to give use each some other way to express the zeitgeist ca. 2010 ...

prisma (norway) #prisma 708 cd

sigurd bergeearly electronic works” compact disc

  • eg beisla min støvel (5:39)
  • preludium (4:55)
  • ritual (4:43)
  • sørgemusikk (6:47)
  • erupsjon (3:06)
  • delta (5:38)
  • (excerpts from) blikk (31:39)
october 2010 release ; lasse & lars have pretty much been kicking ass with the rejuvenated prisma label ... first the kåre kolberg disc, then the bjørn fongaard set, and now this collection of “early electronic works” from norwegian composer sigurd berge (whose appearances on the philips compilation “contemporary music from norway” - alongside arne nordheim & bjørn fongaard - were until now his only released work) ...

... working from backup copies of berge’s music found deep in the henie onstad’s archives, there’s a definite sense of mystery at play here (the pieces are believed mostly to have been composed at the tail end of the 60’s, with the extended “blikk” score recorded during november 1970) ; but one thing is certain :: the levels of sheer analogue pulse-wave grind & dripping reverb-tank excess attained throughout this collection are pretty much unparalleled (one needs only to listen to the sound-sample ; the entirety of “erupsjon” ; a sunken bleep-out coming across like the lost soundtrack to “space invaders”) in scandinavia (or anywhere else for that matter) during the era in question ...

incredible stuff ; highly recommended !!!
prisma press release ::

sigurd berge: early electronic works cd

prisma records 708
releasedate 04.10.2010

prisma records is proud to present the first release dedicated to the music by the late norwegian experimental composer and electronic music pioneer, sigurd berge (1929-2002). this release shows some of berge`s earliest experiments with tape-machines and early synthesizers and is taken from three reels found in the henie onstad art centre music archives in 2009. the reason why these tapes are located here are probably because berge worked for several years at the norwegian studio for electronic music, located at the art centre. berge also was a part of the electronic music concert-series elektrofoni which took part at the centre from 1968 until 1983.

on the first tape we found the unreleased pieces preludium, ritual & sørgemusikk and the previously released pieces erupsjon and eg beisla min støvel. on a different tape we found the musique concrète piece delta, which berge also used in a collaboration with the avant-garde jazz trio svein finnerud in 1970.

the second part of this release is dedicated to one of norway’s first multimedia art installations entitled blikk. the work was commissioned for the henie onstad art centre in 1970 and created by the artists irma salo jæger, jan erik vold and sigurd berge. the installation consisted of jæger’s kinetic sculptures, vold’s abstract poetry and berge’s electronic music, all blended together with one of norway’s first computer generated laser-light shows. the multimedia piece was so complicated to produce that the engineeers halvor heier, birger komedal & harald schiøtz was hired for technical assistance. the pioneering work blikk was exhibited at the henie onstad art centre between april-may 1970.

prisma records is proud to one of norway’s most famous and acclaimed experimental composers and electronic music pioneers for the first time on a complete cd release.

october 2010 release ; deluxeultra analoguevinyl reissue of gift tape #gt000, complete with an exclusive tape of new material ...

while the reissue is a thing of wonder (like many of you, i wasn’t hipped to the majesty of gift tapes until the label’s second batch, missing this inaugural statement) steeped in wobbly, wow / flutter-addled drone-sound, both geoff & i agree that the set’s finest moments come on the tape (true to the duo’s whole modus) ; containing an extended set (another whole albumsworth, essentially) of more contemporary materials ...

excellent work on both fronts ; glad these guys are finally getting some recognition out in the world (case-in-point, this belgian issue) ; highly recommended !!!

brother ravendiving into the pineapple portal lp

the synth explorations by brother raven recall cluster & harmonia with a touch of dream & fantasy. diving into the pineapple portal offers you a view into the craters of the synthesizer moon, seen from earth through 3d new age glasses. the original tape release of ditpp was only handed out to a few friends & artists. as this is one of their most profilic recordings, it deserves a proper release.

brother raven is a seattle-based duo that creates experimental music through improvisations with synthesizers, tape, and effects. drawing influence from synth music of the early 80s, inuit mythology, and time travel, their music combines the atmospheric zones of space music with the positive-vibe ambiance of early new age. formed in 2008 by jamie potter and jason e anderson.

released in an edition of 300.
comes with an optional c40 tape: eagle vision

mel croucher / automata u.k. ltd.pimania” long playing record

  • the piland international anthem
  • pi-balled
  • crummy song
  • pimania

  • some people
  • pompey rock
  • leader of the pac
  • video nasty
  • bit of a cult!
  • ally pally wally
may 2010 release ; ... essentially an lp of off-color songs written & produced by zx spectrum computer-game programmer mel croucher in the early-mid 80s, mainly to augment (or “soundtrack”) a few of his company’s more inspired titles (with names like “piromania”, “olympimania”, “morris meets the bikers”, “go to jail”, etc...) ; many centering around a post pac-man character of his own devising known only as “pi-man” ...

naturally, the “outsideraesthetic that all but drips from this music has found a great match in ted lee’s feeding tube ; clearly ted’s gone all out to do this project justice, with the record housed in an eye-popping gatefold sleeve (with tons of liner notes & contemporary reflections from mel croucher) along with a printed inner-sleeve with a cut-out pi-man mask & a reproduction of the automata u.k. catalogue, and a huge double-sided fold-out poster ...

this is definitely one for the early home-console game ultra-nerd, or even fans of the private-universe british minimal-synth sound ... not for everyone, but highly recommended for those who “get it” ...

feeding tube press release ::

pimania
"the music of mel croucher and automata u.k. ltd.

"don't be so shy man, just come an' meet the pi-man"

the crown jewel in the feeding tube catalog. the music on this record was recorded from 1981-1985 as the conceptual soundtrack for computer games released on cassette by the british software house automata u.k. ltd. combining primitive synthesizer tones and meandering psychedelic blues guitar with cryptic, off-color lyrics about the multi-colored piman and his pals, this is unlike any other "computer music" you know or have imagined.

ultra thick gatefold, comes with cut-out mask, extensive liner notes and poster.

chocolate monk (uk) #choc.217 cd

fritz dietlwebcor” compact disc-recordable

  • tape (3:00)
  • baoding tape (8:45)
  • complete tape (13:45)
august 2010 release ; i’m not going to lie to you ... i didn’t have anything to do with this disc, musically ...

i didn’t record it in westwood, nj in 1988 (although i did frequent mr. dietl’s famed ice-skating rink a few years prior, where more often than not i was feigning an ankle injury in the warm environs of the staging area, wiping out round after round of bubbles on the “scrubber” machine) ... nor did i, after hearing anton bruhin’s “inout” in 1998 procure a webcor tape machine & begin recording hours upon days of pause-button sound-poetry, guitar zonk, accordion jams, farfisa blurt, and cymbal-bash etudes, making copious use of the unit’s speed controls and quick-response transport to come up with basically an “answer” to bruhin (ok, a rip-off, i’ll admit it ... even though i staunchly deny it) ...

one thing’s for sure :: i most certainly didn’t perfectly balance a baoding ball on the unit, perfectly nestled amidst the rollers and reels, where it was set in motion by the tape itself, then disabled the erase head & recorded the results with the supplied microphone onto the tape itself, sound-on-sound style ... and when that was done, i absolutely did not overdub the baoding & bruhin tapes on top of each other, then play & record them with the baoding spinning ...

comes in a black & white slip-sleeve with collages that geoff mullen did not do ... not recommended !!!

choc.217  

some weirdo magnetic tape dupster find, reassembled by keith fullerton whitman into a acidfied bruhin-esque beastly smell.

none of this gibberish, which seems to have been made mainly with half-depressed pause, fast-forward and rewind buttons (and maybe a half-depressed albanian cobbler), have any titles, so let me suggest a few: "butt.er.fl.eyes," "camel nad spit," "looka mi puddy (version)," "borg 9," "sitting on the harpsichord watching all the frogs go by," "the crepitation contest (pts 7-10)," "paddling the dinosaur," "stiffened argyle dangler," "rooster in a juicer," and "syd barrett's series of unfortunate furniture collapses." all kidding aside, i don't have the slightest idea what kind of sustained panic attack might have caused this record. maybe it was an overdose of mint snuff and a pickled egg enema in tinkly-winkly land that leaked out this gooey crust. your goose is as good as mine.

may 2010 release ; wow. didn’t see this coming ; a five-disc set compiling a bunch of of “small run” full-length titles issued over the past few years with kevin drumm’s name on them (including the hospitalmalaise” tape, the “s/t” lp on dilemma, his side of the 2673 split on kitty play) along with several discs of until-now unreleased music dating back to 1998 ...

while much of the material here is in & of the “noise” idiom(s), i was surprised to find much in the way of sparser materials (certainly the early-electronic feel of “old shit 1” was a revelation ; listen to the sound-sample) & high-frequency, keeninginside-your-head” pieces ala maryanne amacher’s “sound characters” ... plus the full version of kevin’s defining “organ(cut down to 17 1/2 on “comedy” but here restored to the full 55 minutes) is incredible, filling the room with a void of air-pushing bass that rivals anything in the sunn o))) canon ...

comes as 5 separate discs, each in their own full-color slip-sleeve, along with a 24-page booklet of dismal photos of presumably kevin’s wicker park lair (pre & post renovation / abandonment) ... i can’t see how anyone that’s been following kevin’s arc since his mid-90s solo guitar statements through the harsh noise & plaintive long-form drone work won’t be bowled over by this veritable treasure trove of material ; highly recommended !!!

oscillating between long sections of static spectral smear & heavily cut-up, explosion-oriented stereo-field mania (listen to the sound-sample, only but a few minutes at the tail end of side one) ; this is anything but a routine exercise for either party, with kevin savagely bashing a guitar & john transforming said into a multi-tiered attack of constantly morphing gain-stages ...

may 2010 release ; after much speculation & fanpire mongering, emeralds here “arrive” with their thirdproper” album, released on peterpita rehberg’s editions mego ...

a few changes are afoot :: gone are the side-length slow burners, replaced here by a suite of remarkably succint pop numbers, taking the band’s trademark synth / guitar / synth attack into new realms ... also, notably, the production values are through the roof, capturing each stray oscillation and phantom guitar echo in amazing detail (not to mention the quality of the lp cut - yowza - d&m’s rachad becker outdoing even himself) ... all things lending to what is undoubtedly the band’s towering recorded achievement thusfar ; finely honed & poised for international superstardom (they’re set to tour japan with fenn’o’berg this summer) ...

lush gatefold double-lp with a gnarly fold-out 24” x 24 poster (like this ::





... you know, for the dorm-wall homasote ; beats yr swan song black-lighter any day of the week) ; highly recommended !!!

emeralds: does it look like i'm here? double gatefold vinyl
release date: 24.05.2010

emeralds are john elliott, steve hauschildt, and mark mcguire
recorded july - august 2009 and january - march 2010 in cleveland, ohio
mastered by james plotkin
vinyl cut at dubplates & mastering, berlin
art by emeralds
cover photo by jen gomez
layout by mike pollard and jen gomez

it sees the group moving from playing single oscillator analog synthesizers to really complex analog and analog/digital hybrid as well a great deal of guitar synthesizers, not to mention fine tuning their skills as brilliant tunesmiths. simply put, the results are outstanding.

comprising of a number of tracks from their recent  ultra limited 7 vinyl series on wagon, as well new compositions exclusive to this release. this fine selection of tunes surpass anything they have achieved in their 5 year career. perfect melodies intertwined with ripping sequences and a guitar sound that floats perfectly throughout. although most tracks cover new ground in that they follow a shortened pop format’, more long form cuts such as the towering genetic and the title track will give fans of their earlier work something to grab onto, or totally let themselves go depending on the state of mind.

having spent all their lives in the relative isolation of cleveland means their music has developed into a vital, stunning unique hybrid that may have not been able to blossom in more active urban centres.

does it look like i’m here?’ heralds a turning point for all those involved and is perfect vivid soundtrack to emerge out of the recent harsh grey winter. fresh, shiny and totally essential.

may 2010 release ; after much speculation & fanpire mongering, emeralds here “arrive” with their thirdproper” album, released on peterpita rehberg’s editions mego ...

a few changes are afoot :: gone are the side-length slow burners, replaced here by a suite of remarkably succint pop numbers, taking the band’s trademark synth / guitar / synth attack into new realms ... also, notably, the production values are through the roof, capturing each stray oscillation and phantom guitar echo in amazing detail ... all things lending to what is undoubtedly the band’s towering recorded achievement thusfar ; finely honed & poised for international superstardom (they’re set to tour japan with fenn’o’berg this summer) ; highly recommended !!!

august 2010 release ; here’s one i’ve been waiting on for ages (or at least as long as it’s been seen howie told me was doing it) :: the intransitive debut of wolf eyes / hair police member mike connelly’s failing lights project !!!

mike’s issued a steady stream of excellent cassettes (largely via his own gods of tundra label) over the past five years, but it wasn’t until he foisted a few copies of the “a cruel picture3-disc box upon us back in 2008 that it really clicked for me :: this wasn’t a set of grimy, sewer-escaping sludge but in fact a rather subtle set of chiming minimalism, forged with the same nuance (albeit rendered in far crispier fidelities) as travellers like yoshi wada & charlemagne palestine ...

lo & behold, this disc continues on where “cruel” left off ; offering an uninterrupted chunk of minimal crackle, hissy vocal filigree, ring-modulated guitar klang, and tape-mangled bells, all ebbing & flowing throughout like characters in an altman movie, culminating in one hell of a rising organ drone ...

i, too (much like steve, dom, and ... henry ... below) hear this as the crown jewel in mike’s extensive discography ... highly recommended !!!

ps. i’ve put up an extra-long sound-sample of the piece/disc’s triumphant final section as it’s a gorgeous slow-burner whose subtleties would be lost on a regular 2-minute job ... enjoy !!!

int036 failing lights cd

mike connelly's failing lights cd is a deep trip into darkness, density and dimension. this work is not random noise. connelly is able to bend sound and texture at will, with a great deal of control. he sculpts huge amounts of space and intensity with a great deal of grip. really good!

- henry rollins


...

with the first full-length cd of failing lights, mike connelly melds his diverse and obscure personal musical interests into one inspirational album. patience. minimalism. refinement. restraint. filthy dirty home recording, executed with the cutting skill of a sound-art composer and the heart of folk music. an amazing album, by far his best!

- dominick fernow, prurient


...

never before has the solo force of mike connelly been so clearly on display. failing lights is a dark necessity, an important document from one of underground music's most important figures.

- steve lowenthal


...

an evocative work of bleak electronic atmosphere and suffocating dread, failing lights is the intensely personal vision of michigan (via lexington, ky) artist mike connelly. while he has toured the world as 1/3 of legendary industrial/noise units hair police and wolf eyes, connelly spends his days crafting a much different sound on his own. under the failing lights flag, he has selfpublished a nearly uncountable number of cassettes and cdrs of rough drones, detuned improvised grit and unstable acoustics in tiny editions that quickly vanish into collector-land. intransitive is proud to present the definingand first widely availablefailing lights statement, an album of sinewy horror with a fine-tuned beauty within its darkness.

a single piece in five sections, failing lights begins with disquietingly barren negative space. as the album creeps forward, it steadily dispenses sheets of diffuse throat-scratch and skittering strings, culminating in a blast of molten organ. not noise, ambient, improv, black metal, or anything else: this is failing lights .

available august, 2010. edition of 1000, in shrink-wrapped jewel case featuring full color artwork by the artist.

march 2010 release ; finally on a proper, replicated cd, the bulk of the pietro grossicomputer music” 2lp (originally issued by “two nuns” in 1972 ; though most of you prob. know it via the creel pone replication) ...

about which ::


historically i’ve never been all that fond of first or even second-tier moog / computer-sploitation lps; i’m talking about “switched on bach” and the flock that followed in its wake - “switched on country” / “everything you always wanted to know about the moog*” / etc... while i’m sure it was all well & good @ the time (as the record-buying public proved in record numbers), but in retrospect it’s not all that interesting to hear mussorgsky’s “pictures at an exhibition” synthesized on a moog 900 series modular, or george jones on a pdp-11 at that...

so... why is this collection of late 60s / early 70s computerized insanity, presented in essentially the same manner (albeit with much nicer artwork), so damn amazing? in the same way that someone like louis wain’s later paintings of cats are so damn amazing when compared to those of his “fruitful” career; he, not unlike grossi here, went through the looking glass and came out the other end with his grand-vision altered beyond recognition...

the first disc/lp offers a 12 minute demo (in italian) of the ibm system/360 software systems (referred to as dcmp* and play1800* throughout...), then 2 bach pieces, then a side of paganini etudes, all realized using the aforementioned software/hardware system... but even here we’re starting to witness signs of grossi’s willingness to roam into “non-musical” territory; parts are sped up and slowed down well beyond recognition, parameters are ruthlessly tweaked into needle-in-the-forehead domains using shrill, generally unpleasant timbres... but that’s not even the weirdest part...

by the second disc/lp, grossi has thrown the notion of realizing “known” music(s) out the window entirely, instead offering up a series of blistering original compositions realized on the same system/software... only these are just fried, buzzing-bee-scapes, on par with with what people like florian hecker are doing with modern machines and software... yet this was back in 1971! by the time the 20-minuteunending music” starts drilling through your cortex, things are already way beyond normal and far into the realms of the unreal... case in point grossi’s own description of said piece in the booklet (also containing an essay entitled “computer and pentagram” (?!?)) ::


sound agglomerates the elaboration of which, as in the case of «monodia», is virtually unending. in this work, variations in timbre and volume of the sound are added to those of tempo and frequency. the composition of monodic, with the exception of a two voices section from the eleventh to the fifteenth minute. direct bi-channel recording was made possible by the digital-analog converter


as to the “sound agglomerates” :: anyone’s guess... one can almost witness grossi’s descent into madness as the solo studio hours/tan start piling up; the neat holes in all of those punch cards getting messier and messier (again... ala louis wain; his cats getting more & more angular; their insane eyes eventually taking over the frame...vs. grossi’s transposed classical melodies eventually giving way to a collection of 200mph atonal arpeggiation and raw sawtooth burn...) those wanting to experience the whole range from method to madness can start right at the beginning; others with shorter attention spans and a tendency towards the absurd will want to jump right to the second disc for a veritable mind-fuck that trumps most contemporary computer-skree... just ridiculously noisy/buzzing sawtooth crunch... and again, from the early 70s no less!


... this is augmented with a disc of music composed at grossi’s s 2f m by a league of composers including vittorio gelmetti, albert mayr, teresa rampazzi, riccardo andreoni, aurelio peruzzi, and others ... all shining examples of 60’sacademictape music, in and of itself something of a treasure-trove ... but issued in accord with the aforementioned computer music skronk, this set becomes an essential document of not just italian electronic music, but the entire global early tape/computer music scene ...

highly recommended !!!

pietro grossi combinatoria

genre: early electronic, tape music, early computer sounds
format: cd box
description: deluxe silver cd-box, silver-foil design, complete with a 28-pages booklet in italian and english

a comprehensive guide to the core recordings of one of the most visionary and inspiring, subversive and radical musicians from italy, this 2-cd box deluxe edition captures pietro grossi’s original vision, presenting a wide selection of his studio early recordings, beautifully re-mastered to preserve the enduring quality.

pietro grossi used to playfully define himself as pigro [lazy], but he wasn't lazy at all! few musicians have been working everyday at such a cracking pace, creating, teaching and writing, and when we listen to his music we should bear in mind how this complex figure of musician, cellist and composer, and also visual artist, has developed creative thinking in a path where a blend of very different aspects organically cohabited.

since the late '50s grossi was convinced of the potential of the 'new sound' and was totally obsessed with pioneering it, to the point where he would found the s 2f m (studio di fonologia musicale di firenze) in 1963 -  which made its headquarters in florence at the conservatorio, and then in his apartment! - spending days and nights on end splicing tapes and working with various modified machines to create his abstract soundscapes. the two cds features his first analogical electronic music, as well as some s 2f m studio works by colleagues such as vittorio gelmetti, gruppo nps (with teresa rampazzi) and albert mayr, while the second disc is focused on the prototype computer generated sound synthesis.

gärden söundblack summit” long playing record

  • forbidden paradise
  • beast of burden

  • hidden origin
  • obsidian sky
october 2010 release ; debut release from this new aggregate, featuring 2/2’s of barn owl & eternal tapestry’s dewey mahood & jed bindeman ...

the curious use of umlauts would lead one to believe that the intended destination is gårdet ca. 1970, but the two main pieces are definitely rooted in seattle ca. 1991 ; monolithic guitar bloom, caveman drums and the like ... that said, the two “opener” pieces show a lighter touch, with some nice, snaking, modal guitar interplay amidst jed’s subtle malletings ...
digitalis vinyl press release ::
digiv028: gärden sound "black summit lp

when it comes to blown-out psychedelia, the first current band i want to hear is eternal tapestry. when it comes to desolate desert blues, that band is barn owl. those are two pretty potent names in the world of experimental music right now so when 4/5 of them join up for some portland sessions, that's good news for us all. gärden sound is the quartet of dewey mahood and jed bindeman of eternal tapestry (as well as plankton wat & heavy winged, respectively) and jon porras and evan caminiti of barn owl. "black summit" is their first charcoal-lined foray into the deep and if you can't get lost in this haze, there's not much hope.

immediately evident is the incredible restraint shown by all four players. they're not being timid or trying to feel each other out, but there's an obvious level of comfort and understanding between each. with three guitars and bindeman's trademark drumming, it would be easy to drown everything in full-on sludge but gärden sound are too damn good to play that game. opener, "forbidden paradise," sets the scene. methodical guitar works lull the listener into a solemn state of comfort while bindeman adds to the hypnosis with tribal-infused narcotic rhythms. the build-up is slow but gets you ready for the knock-down blasts of "beast of burden." heavy stomp and zoned-out, smoked-out guitar riffs that blow the roof to oblivion. this is music that needs to be played as loud as you can stand it.

"hidden origin" calms things back down, contemplating the next move while finding its way through the blackened labryinth concocted by porras, caminiti and mahood. each guitarist finds his own path as they lead each other to the prize. the 14-minute closer, "obsidian sky," brings everything home. sprawling riffage like a dense forest of apocalyptic crumble. desolation takes hold as the molasses drones take shape and form themselves into an unpassable mountain of debris. it's mind-bending and cathartic; a sonic temple crushed to ash so it can rise again. gärden sound prove worthy opponents, ably standing on their own and stomping out their own trail toward the stars.

mastered by james plotkin. vinyl only edition of 400 copies w/ original cover art by evan caminiti.

november 2010 release ; ah, excellent ... was worried this reissue of emeralds johnouter spaceelliott’s obscure imaginary softwoods output would slip us by ; alas john was on the ball & supplied us with a decent grip for the laterally inclined ...

i’m tempted to frame this as john’s stab at satie-styled salon music ; certainly the melancholic, cyclic phrasing of the more “hands-on” pieces (listen to the sound-sample) do remind me of the velvet gentleman ... but then again the other half of the record is in familiar territories ; gorgeous filtered drone-cloudings with endless layers of almost subliminal, fleeting automations that are anything but static ...

incredibly nice euro / uk edition (manufactured by the boomkat folks by proxy for brad / digitalis) ; similar spec to the recent emego vinyl of “does it look like i’m here” ; full color euro gatefold double with full-color everything (with interesting, almost jandek-esque label-art) ; highly recommended !!!

digi060: imaginary softwoods s/t 2lp

three years ago, a triple cassette oddity appeared out of nowhere adorned in washed-out nature collages and zero information. turns out that john elliot of emeralds was behind the madness, and after further dissection of the sounds enclosed and it all began to make sense.

those three tapes (one yellow, one blue, one red) were the first taste of something that felt like a lost private-press object from the early european electronic experimentations of the '60s & '70s. each vignette is its own story, its own exploration. synthesizers and other electronics are stripped to their bare bones, never drifting beyond a mere five minutes. it's the brevity that is the guiding hand, though. every tone and every note is carefully considered and utilized as you're sucked into a world of washed-out colors and sullen landscapes.

one thing that immediately stands out with these pieces is just how restrained elliot is with them. it adds considerable tension, even if its understated, giving the album a surprising amount of emotional depth. each piece is its own miniature mountain, traversed and left behind all in a matter of minutes. as you interact with the subtlety changing harmonics and tonal shifts, you begin to float away into synthetic dreams. if all bedroom albums were this great, i'd never leave the house. a true gem.

completely remastered for vinyl by james plotkin and cut in berlin by d+m. the deluxe vinyl edition is presented in full-color gatefold jackets with all new art from john elliot in conjunction with the inimitable witchbeam.

jooklo duothe warrior” seven inch single record

  • primitive power (4:23)

  • fire liberation (5:26)
november 2010 release ; now that’s what i’m talking about ... after being whispered about in the most hallowed of halls, the duo of virginia genta (whose recent rooftop duo set w/ chris corsano on 8mm was an out-and-out slayer) & david vanzan finally get a “mass-market” edition ...

hot on the heels of gigs w/ sabu toyozumi & sonny simmons ... and a week-long run at the barbican in london (where they performed musical accompaniment to merce cunningham’s final piece, alongside takehisa kosugi, john paul jones [!?], and sonic youth) comes this devastating blast, equal parts ayler-lineage “fire music” and borbetomagus-styled carpet-bombing that’s as powerfully psychedelic as it gets ...

comes in nice screen-printed sleeve (c/o eli keszler’s rel studio) on some bonded stock, with a b/w insert ... one of the singles of the year afa my own sensibilities are concerned ; highly recommended !!!

virginia genta: tenor and soprano sax, clarinet

not since albert ayler stalked the hamnar of stockholm and reverberated his fire music off the walls of les tenements has there been an avant-garde jazz saxophonist who can all out wail like virginia genta can. don’t let her calm presence fool you. nor should david vanzan’s taller stature lead to believe this is not an equal opportunity free jazz freak-out. from when their poles first were converged by the cosmic force in 1999, italy’s (with finnish godparents) jooklo duo has been winning hearts and brains worldwide through jaw-dropping performances and a series of limited edition releases keeping at bay ravenous fans only long enough to get to the next gig. now, for their first u.s. release, northern-spy records launches its own assault on an as yet unsuspecting public with the 7, the warrior.

recorded october 11th, 2010, at troglosound home studio, it’s as compact and complex as a leather-bound book of esoterica ready to haul you off to the most hidden lands of universal energy.

"the kermes infestation"
……2
(cat no. k planam 6)
6lp record box
edition limited to 145 copies

planam proudly presents k-salvatore the kermes infestation 6lp box masterpiece. this is the first ever available edition as the elusive self published triple tape on sound@one was originally released in 1996 in an invisible edition of just 10 copies. pre-dating the glorious four impossible puns” double lp on siwa these recordings represent one of the most solid and estreme accomplishments in a parallel to no neck blues band early era universe.

k-salvatore is the enigmatic entity created by no neck blues band founding members pat murano (decimus, key of shame, malkuth, raajmahal, kelippah records) and jason meagher (black dirt studio and records).

during the summer of 1995, k-salvatore purchased 10 copies of an instructional audio cassette package on remainder at a local barnes and noble. the group then endeavored to replace the originally contained instruction with their own. over the course of the remainder of that summer, jason meagher and pat murano met once a week to record six continuous improvisations. one for each side of the package. once completed the 10 copies were distributed amongst friends and family for study.

akin to a 5+ hour kidnapping ordeal that culminates, not with freedom restored, but instead disembowlment in a sad man's bathtub.

available now on 6 lps with individual silkscreened sleeves in a hand colored and silkscreened heavy box, in a numbered edition of 145 copies only.

august 2010 release ; ... can’t think of many acts that have produced the kind(s) of singular, quality work over a 12+ year existence as ky here, all the while sticking close to their guns & actually going deeper & deeper down into their chosen experimental-music rabbit-holes (i.e. never distilling their approach, despite global distribution & acclaim, into something approaching ... “palatable music”) ...

case-in-point ; this glorious train-wreck of an album, set forth from the mind of jan anderzén (... & countless contributors, collaborators, & hangers-on) ; constantly twisting & turning through a veritable maze of electronic excess, stepping foot for seconds at a time into their various border-camps (i.e. electro-acoustic improv, idm, “freak folk”, hypnotic gaggery, commune-psych, etc ...) but only existing fully as “kemialliset ystävät music” ...

incredible music from one of my favorite acts ; long may they reign ...
fonal press release ::

kemialliset ystävät
ullakkopalo

format: cd
total length: 44 minutes
catalogue number: fr-69
released: 30.8.2010

jan anderzén is one of the few finnish musicians to achieve renown on the international experimental circuit. in the case of anderzén (who also plies a trade as a visual artist), this is not a matter of juxtaposition between the experimental and the mainstream, or a calculated career choice. using music and images, he is busy creating a world that is a law unto itself, a world of exceptional freedom and beauty.

ky albums have been peppered with contributions from individuals such as islaja, the members of avarus, and sami sänpäkkilä. it’s not easy to tell who plays what on kemialliset ystävät recordings. rather than being a project consisting of solo parts, the band is an eco-system within anderzén’s reality.

one of the essential techniques applied by anderzén is collage, in sound as well as image. he is no conventional instrumental virtuoso; his music is created with a fluctuating array of instruments and equipment. the focus is less on instrumental prowess and more on the overall sound and impression, as well as the tension between the various materials. as a manipulator of these elements, anderzén is in a league of his own. his sampler based solo performances as tomutonttu have left no doubt about that.

a close listening of anderzén’s music reveals its near architectonic precision. he is known for an exceptionally painstaking approach to creating his music. all this hard work is readily evident in the finished product, not as an over-emphasised complexity but as a clearly independent fully realised vision.

kemialliset ystävät is like a natural phenomenon. it is difficult to imagine anyone having consciously constructed it, such is the ease with which it presents itself to us. to be in the presence of anderzen’s work is captivating in the same way it is to stare into the firesimple, yet inexplicable. it truly takes a master to create such an experience, but listening to the new kemialliset ystävät album evokes just that: a feeling of lightness.

february 2010 release ; cd version of the october 2009 lp release (now o/p) replete with a bonus, 14-minute piece (listen to the sound-sample) ...


... brilliant set from robertlichenslowe, most recently seen out on the open road supporting om (both as an opening act & as a “third” ; contributing some ghostly vocals & assorted keyboard / guitar scatter to their increasingly eastern-themed doom-throb) ...

... rather than a set of rob’s now-trademark looped vocals, this one’s concerned with analogue synth & minimalism-inspired guitar patternage, ranging from the opener’s echoes of popol vuh, to the sliding, sky records-lineagecyclamen”, the the pervasive “library music” feel of the majority of the second side (esp. the sonoton, kpm, and studio gsynth” libraries) ...

some of the best i’ve heard from rob, timed perfectly with contemporary synth-music’s shift away from straight tangerine dream-lineage drone-cycling into other areas ... highly recommended !!!

title : fazo iv: la kvalito de speguloj
artist : robert a.a. lowe
catalogue #: rbbd004
file under : experimental, ambient, drone
release date : 02/16/010
format : cd
riyl : oneohtrix point never, cluster & eno, la düsseldorf, harmonia, john carpenter

on fazo iv: la kvalito de speguloj, robert aiki aubrey lowe (lichens, singer, 90 day men) constructs haunting, beautiful, at times hypnotic rhythms and melodies using synthesizers. his love of the warm, bubbling, physical sounds of the synthesizer permeates these seven songs, which seem simultaneously strangely familiar yet also somehow distant and alien.

fazo iv: la kvalito de speguloj (phase 4: the quality of mirrors) is a further extension of lowe’s exploration of sonic vocabularies and emotional landscapes. because the modes lowe utilizes are tonally and melodically universal to his ear, he has titled the album in the language of esperanto -- the universal language constructed to foster international understanding and peace. this notion of univeral understanding comes through in waves on fazo iv. there is a certain tranquility in these tracks -- something very meditative and therapeutic; a calming honesty that leads the mind inward and transcends language.

november 2010 release ; reason #101 (as if you needed the other 100) why you should love geoff mullen :: upon receiving a modest grant from the state of rhode island to realize an lp of “localmusic, geoff decides not to blow the dough on a lavish double-lp gatefold of his own music, but instead a nice, well-considered collection by r.i.outsider” genius larry marshall, whose fans & acolytes range from arab on radar (with whom he toured), scøttwork/deathreber (who recorded some of the material here on his old bsr radio show) and chrisophercfforgues (who, along with providing the layout & look of this lovely lp edition, “produced” a few of the tracks in his inimitable style) ; the left-over money was then used to procure larry a suit (“nothing too fancy”) ...

the music here’s wildly divergent, covering a buncha bases ... the solo, live material is as fractured in it’s time scale as that of syd barrett (who sounds like a major influence) ; but then there are the darkwave electro-ballads that are more attuned to a berlin cabaret ca. 1981 than a contemporary olneyville bedsit ... the latent eastern-tinged sensibilities & odd production choices (i.e. doubled-up vocal tracks) that prop up songs like “pagan worm in a transformational world(listen to the sound-sample) place larry squarely in that unbroken continuum of “private” / “real-peoplegenius-types, relevant to fans of the frogs & gary wilson as kenneth higney & peter grudzien ; but on tracks like the openerall is forgiven” his simplistic vocals & casiotronics paint him as naïve as a newborn kitten ...

an awesome record, has me a bit outside my comfort zone in the best possible way (complacency is overrated anyways) ... white & off-brown sleeve contains a nice stiff insert & credit-sheet ; how well this all turned out is a testament to geoff’s stick-tuitive-nuss ... highly recommended !!!

larry marshall queer and wonder  lp

this album is a collection of songs from larry marshall, an elusive and mythic figure whose self-described gothic folk...from the future is presented here for the first time in glowing, psychedelic stereo-surround, etched on black wax.

larry has been living in rhode island for his entire life, and has performed at many of the storied (and now defunct) venues in and around providence, ri. despite this long history, his music is barely known outside of a small circle of close friends and die-hard local fans.

queer and wonder is a collection of songs from larry’s catalog: three tracks were previously released on a small cassette edition from unskilled labor, and a track by the band box patrol (w/larry on vocals and pitch-pipe), was previously released on a cdr by the legendary fort thunder records. the lp is rounded off w/ a few live tracks from a solo gig in manchester, england, a live radio session, and some collaborations unearthed from tapes found in larry’s apartment in west warwick, ri. 

edition of 350, covers designed by cf, w/ inserts / lyric sheet.

messenger girls trio - excelsior salon trio

messenger girls triothe excelsior salon trio ... comprised of sir richard bishop (by appointment to her majesty—what the old broad did to deserve that, we'll never know) and david knott (improvisationally board certified music therapist), in congress with robert millis and jeffery taylor (often known for their recreational duties in both climax golden twins and afcgt). the quartet last released a trio album in 2002 for the anomalous record label. or perhaps the trio released a quartet album. after that richard bishop toured. dave knott put people's minds back together or took them apart--it just depends on your point of view. climax golden twins devoured 78rpm records and other victrola favorites. meanwhile the quartet trio tape kept rolling—cassette players, digital devices, dictaphones, micro cassette, wire recorders, phonautographs, notes on paper.

edited from hours of material recorded between 2002 and 2008. mostly improvised in living rooms and on front porches. mostly in seattle: on goat hill, at the shabby greenwood grotto studio and at the sun city girls' cavernous blue west headquarters, may it rest in pieces. mostly with acoustic guitars and percussion. occasional insects were wrangled into the proceedings. layered. sliced. stretched. messed, tweaked, poked, prodded, beaten and slipped luxuriously onto a vinyl platter for your listing enjoyment and listening pleasure by the epicureans at uzu audio.

august 2010 release ; awesome, luxury-oriented vinyl pressing of geoff’s crowning achievement !!!

to re-iterate ::


it’s amazing to think that geoff hasn’t released a proper full-length since 2007’s one-two punch of “armory radio” & (the criminally under-appreciated)dog daze of summer” ... enter luke moldof’s razors & medicine with the hook up, an alliance that led to this fantastic set of gauzy yamaha cs-50 fizz & burbling, echo-drenched guitar pieces ; both in & of geoff’s and only geoff’s whole private universe / concept-sector ...

while the opening track wades in familiar waters (classic geoff ; misted, filtered-out chord-cycling with an evident click-pulse) the second sounds like geoff’s trying to channel the same sort of gonzo / out-there logic of ned folkerth & mike pierry’s “deadbeat at dawn” score (i know for a fact said is a big touchstone) ; 10 minutes of backwards bongos (turns out the title’s not a red herring) and squeaking ring-mod circuit-juice ... the third piece is arguably the album’s highlight with a lovely modal guitar pattern overlaid with myriad synth & effects-layers ; very dense & quite rewarding ...

the second side picks up with some dusted guitar-echo patterns & spry, bell-like twinkle before cascading into some rather popol-vuh-esque sound-freeze before bringing things full circle ; geoff’s at the top of his game here & we’re all the richer for it ...


... going from luke’s pro-dub to this dubplates & mastering -fussed-over edition reveals myriad detail ; getting lost in the rippling static & endless analog gaze has never been easier ... comes coated in a brand-new design-spec (set in the same crumbling new paltz / borscht-belt hotel as “the shining” for some nice extra-musical cues) ; highly recommended !!!

bongo closet by geoff mullen

a gorgeous, hazy journey through the psyche of geoff mullen.

providence, rhode island operative geoff mullen has been working beneath the popular music radar for some time now, putting his name to a number of limited cassettes, cdrs and vinyl albums. it is hardly surprising that in that time he has developed something of a cult following in the new england scene, with live performances (solo and together with keith fullerton whitman) and his own rare youth label garnering him a loyal throng of rabid fans.

using the guitar, synthesizer and a selection of well-developed processes, mullen has come up with a unique sound difficult to pigeonhole. throughout the album the sounds feel so effortlessly unified that one can completely forget the individual instruments themselves. it is hard to believe that the synthesizer used (the legendary yamaha cs50) is the baby brother of the cs80, heard so distinctively piped into deckard’s electric dreams in blade runner. the distant, dusty tones and pulsating rhythms bring to mind instead memories of early popol vuh or something altogether more defiant. as a veteran guitarist, writing bongo closet’ was mullen’s search for different ways of playing music, and these weathered, deeply personal songs are the result. rich with emotion and surprisingly detailed, there is the sense that the technology never informs the creative process. mullen is using his chosen instruments without a care for what they can and can’t do – they are tools in the creation of his music, never the other way around.

bongo closet is an intensely human listening experience. teeming with life and breathing as it coughs and splutters, there is an unavoidable attachment felt almost instantly as a listener. this is music that drags you in and simply refuses to let go.

brendan murray / perispiritbirches and marksmen’s graves (voice and computer #1) b/w compliant victim” long playing record

  • brendan murray - birches and marksmen’s graves (voice and computer #1) (16:30)

  • perispirit - compliant victim (17:00)
march 2010 release ; new music from two of the greater boston area’s finest ...

brendan’s side-length piece shows him branching off in a new direction ; constructed entirely from recordings of avant-vocalist noeill dorsey, “birches” recalls penderecki’s eerie/orgasmic glossolalia with the chromatic dissonance of ruggles’ “sun-trader” ... largely computer-smeared/granulated sounds with stray dottings of “dry” vocals at key dramatic moments ... super effective and seriously creepy !!!

on the flip, luke moldof & ricardo donoso’s perispirit take the reigns, offering up a single, crackle-heavy burst of rectified digitalia, harsh-noise blasting, and lulling guitar waves (and that’s just in the first 3 minutes !!! ) building into a twin-peak climax (listen to the sound-sample for the tail-end of #1) that’s both finely nuanced & quite powerful ...

lovely beige-cream vinyl, full-color labels & jacket ; one of the key releases of the year thusfar ... highly recommended !!!

brendan murray / perispirit split lp
semata productions (sem-010), razors & medicine (r&m25)

razors and medicine and semata productions are pleased to announce the first long playing record release of both brendan murray and perispirit. murray has been making waves around boston, the usa, and the world since 1999. perispirit, the collaborative project of ricardo donoso and luke moldof formed in late 2007, is known by their dynamic live performances and two cassette releases.

brendan murray’s birches and marksman’s graves (voice and computer #1)” is a clear summation of his interest in controlled drones and gestural improvisation with a step into the unknown. murray is always keen to transform and manipulate an instrument sound color to the point of non-recognition, utilizing a single source for this piece: the voice of noell dorsey.

the piece opens with dissonant clusters, moving up and down generating momentum, keeping the music physical while still highly controlled. vague hints of melody lie underneath the cracks trying to seep through but are swallowed up by the turbulence. it gradually gives way to extended technique vocalisms that call to mind sound poetry and at times even the sprechstimme of schoenberg. later the swirling tones return with a combination of both the higher and lower pitch clusters. it sounds like falling infinitely downward.

perispirit’s side offers a statement that is equally focused but bares little if any resemblance to murray’s piece. it can be described as more active than their previous material, utilizing quick sectional transitions, relying on three key components: harsh noise, delicate melodic work, and degraded lo-fi manipulations.

the piece begins with dynamic harsh cutups that pay attention to sound specialization and stereo field manipulations inspired by the likes of sickness and pain jerk. the momentum grows and is quickly brought down to almost nothing creating a feeling of aural blue balls. the process is resumed and then the piece breaks into looping guitar passages with a subtle electronic underpinning. the layers build than disappear. the noise returns building to a heightened peak of frustration until it drops off and we are left with the sound of life’s monotony. gradually a wall of drone begins to creep in and eventually overtakes all else.

  • selected occasions of handsome deceit (18:48)
february 2010 release ; strikingly dynamic new music from bhob rainey & greg kelley’s nmperign, here working with x.0.4’s percussionist jake meginsky ...

jake’s presence seems to usher the duo into more active modes, with his bass-drum resonances fleshing out the lower spectra, leaving the two horn players free to compete for breathable air-space in the middle & upper registers ... tbe (gorgeous) recording (seemingly made in an airplane hangar) does wonders for meshing the disparate elements, on occasion approaching the wind-tunnel ambiance of 80s david jackman productions, all while preserving the myriad details inherent to bhob & greg’s respective embouchures ...

lovely package from eli & ashley, with the lp tucked into a picture-disc sleeve, adorned only by an eye-catching vertical insert ... highly recommended !!!
