king kong ding dong
youth culture index
lp

after an extended period of dormancy, king kong ding dong returns with their first full- length album, youth culture index, recorded in various bedrooms, basements, and other amorphous dwellings over a lazy year and a half period of musical indian summer progeny. this collection of eleven tracks incorporates pieces built around samples, guitar tunings, and field reverberations. the music within relies more on pulsing percussion and sonic textures than on lyrical content.

using samplers, de-tuned guitars found in the trash, and stand-up drumming with random melodic percussion, philadelphia based group king kong ding dong make tribal, dreamy/nightmarish music with hints of pop. the music incorporates drone experimentation, whammy bar tone bending, and 4- track sound manipulation. the group shares members with a sunny day in glasgow, but does not share the same sound, instrumentation, nor set musical concept.

these are the perfect summer jams and the cd-r release has already been made "record of the week" over at aquarius records and praised by a bunch of influential online blogs. this is rock music reduced to it’s core: euphoric, charming, effortlessly smart, unstrained, willingly unhip, and unambitious in the most positive sense, summoning echoes of drag city-era early pavement or a heroin-less juvenescent royal trux with mdma replacing the opiate infusions, combined with the diy aesthetics of several not not fun and woodsist related bands.

the group has performed with:
ponytail, health, high places, the mae shi, man man, yacht, lucky dragons, these are powers, tickley feather, double dagger, soft circle

recommended for fans of:
sonic youth, the raincoats, liars, this heat, the swirlies, jandek, the monks, boxes of kittens

november 2009 release ; incredible lp of mutant psycho-junk from jani hirvonen ...

jani’s one of the few “prolifics” i can get behind ; over 7 years & dozens of low-run editions he’s mapped out a detailed floodplain of whistling bells, garbled vocals, and transcendent string-snap that’s restlessly flitting from one idea to the next, rarely staying still or rehashing older idea-sets in favor of continuous linear-path development ...

this one stays the course while delving into some nice, almost sound-art lineage combinations (listen to the sound-sample for a fine bubbling water & solemn chord-shape study) ... very nice !!!

uton
unexplained objects
lp

limited edition of 500 copies!

"unexplained objects“ is the 3rd vinyl-only lp by finland’s uton for the dekorder label, like his previous dekorder albums released in a strictly limited edition of 500 copies in a beautiful full-colour heavy duty sleeve designed by hirvonen himself.

while the last albums explored rural soundworlds from the outer reaches of this planet and hidden places of the inner human (and animal) mind, he has finally left planet earth completely and is now reaching out for outer space and alien communication. hirvonen seems to have traveled the spaceways, bringing home folk music and field recordings from faraway planets and alien cultures. erich von däniken beware!

uton is the one-man project of jani hirvonen originally hailing from tampere. hirvonen is one of the most active musicians of the finnish underground scene that has recently presented us the likes of kuupuu, kemialliset ystävät, islaja, paavoharju and lau nau and a seemingly never-ending stream of beautiful and highly original record releases.

uton has previously released dozens of cd’s, cd-r's and cassettes on a myriad of labels including jewelled antler, pseudo arcana, last visible dog, digitalis, ruralfauna and his own ikuisuus. he has collaborated with amon dude (avarus), anla courtis (reynols), antony milton (black boned angel), ben reynolds, peter wright, phil todd (ashtray navigations) and jan anderzen (tomutonttu, kemialliset ystävät) among others. the latter collaboration (under the hevoset moniker) has been released on lp by dekorder as well.

wooden veil
s/t
cd

belonging to a world that is at once pre-millenial and post-apocalyptic, wooden veil’s music is the drumbeat of an ancient yet technological past channeled through the sounds of a post-human race. masked and costumed, the players invoke a musical force as a shaman would a ghost. collecting rhythm like wind collecting a storm, wooden veil gives grand form to noise – they make it an event. drums, drones, harmonies and screams clamor in their songs, erupting now and again into a plainsong that rings just long enough for a melody to take shape, before it dissolves back into sonic entropy.

- carson chan, program – initiative for art + architecture, berlin


...

playing like a semiotic mist, wooden veil approach their performances as handmade, patchwork quilt-like structures with emphasis on showing the lines of assembly, sewing together mythologies, traditional song, craft, ritual and acoustics.

- steven warwick (heatsick, birds of delay)



wooden veil is a berlin-based art group formed in 2007. inspired by the shared hauntedness of their respective homelands, they combine elements from forgotten and misremembered traditions to create a microcosmic world which only wooden veil inhabits, complete with its own symbols, clothing, food and shelters. performances, installations and videos are characterized by an expansive wardrobe of ritual dress, and the creation of shrines, relics and talismans used to create music.

the group consists of artists marcel türkowsky (also a composer, founder of snake figures arkestra, cones, uuhuu, collaborations with datashock and christoph heemann), hanayo (known for her solo work as a photographer and singer, collaborating with the likes of christoph schlingensief, merzbow, red crayola, and kai althoff), christopher kline (valkenburg hermitage, †, night music, and soft peace), dominik noé (member of krautrock legends lustfaust),  and jan pfeiffer (songs for rocks, soft peace, purple).

to understand:

hold right hand, cupped near right ear; turn hand back and forth slightly with wrist. bring left hand to opposite eye with the second finger pointing in the direction one is looking. with index and thumb of right hand, form an incomplete circle, space of one inch between tips; hold hand towards the earth, then move it in a curve across the heavens and back toward the horizon.

june 2009 release ; finally, the debut album from danish musician mikkel moir pihl, after a series of mini-cds for the dekorder label, strewn out over the past decade ...

i have a soft-spot for this sort of non-denominational electronic pop music ; while certain passages remind me more than a little of anthony manning’s string of excellent bedroom “modern composition” albums for irdial, this is by-and-large in its own orbit, rarely touching down to any known genre-maps ... one minute it sounds much like the ventures’ “live in japan ‘65” played on an mpc by hand, the next a warp-speed take on the kind(s) of synclavier-worship most commonly associated with the liquid sky soundtrack ...

either way it’s pure win ; one of the more oddly compelling records i’ve heard this year ...

voks
astra & knyst
lp

voks aka mikkel moir pihl from copenhagen, denmark is a household name on dekorder, being signed to the label since its inception six years ago. though keeping a low profile with only two 3" cd releases in all these years he won over some dedicated fans such as the late john peel, who shortly before his death played a different voks track every week for several weeks in a row.

now voks is finally presenting his first full-length album (though only 30 minutes long this is epic in voks' universe - both 3"cd's included 10 tracks each within 20 minutes). while keeping his trademark style of hyperactive and nervous high-pitched twisted pop songs a newborn interest in (italo-western) movie soundtracks seems to be evident. the sound of super fast surf guitars is colliding with what seems chinese opera samples, world music is combined with children's whisteling tunes. think raymond scott, joe meek, ennio morricone or carl stalling collaborating with the residents and then getting an 8-bit remix by the aphex twin.

a surprising & amazing record, really! it will leave a huge grin on your face (and a few question marks as well)....

february 2009 release ; debut full-length from this new, post-bcm project from campbell kneale ...

while the prior dirty knobby single was full of looping idm beats, they’re nowhere to be found here ; instead the familiar mix of late-period birchville’s crushing drones & the scorched-earth peal of black boned angel’s harsh guitar walls is in effect, yielding inarguably the harshest set of pieces i’ve heard from campbell yet, akin to a more orchestrated take on hototogisu’s approach ...

a marked improvement from the aforementioned single, one of of the best sides i’ve heard from cambpell in recent times ...

our love will destroy the world
stillborn plague angels
lp

the gates of birchville cat motel crack, creak wide, and crash, unleashing a gush of soul-fried bleakness and love-damage stained with a defiantly metallic pose. that’s "metallic... as in, has the surface qualities of metal" not "metal... as in, has the surface qualities of metallica"... step back you fucking freaks.

although the broken bricks of bcm are still plain to see amid the burning wreck and ruin, 'stillborn plague angels' represents the first fully formed sentence in a new chapter of campbell kneale's ongoing tome of star-spangled, psychedelic, noise-om. cholesterol-shaving guitar peeks over the trench to survey an adrenalised landscape of endless roaring catastrophy... everything louder than everything else! 

our love will destroy the world is the new one-man project by new zealander campbell kneale after disbanding birchville cat motel. in the past kneale has released albums on ecstatic peace, corpus hermeticum, last visible dog, conspiracy and his own celebrate psi phenomena label. he has colllaborated with lee ranaldo, neil campbell, bruce russel, john olson (wolf eyes), yellow swans, has toured throughout japan, europe, america and australia and also records und the names black boned angel and ming.

stillborn plague angels“ is the debut lp by this new project.

[029] machinefabriek "dauw" cd

machinefabriek is the alias for rutger zuydervelt currently residing in rotterdam, the netherlands. since 2004 zuydervelt has unleashed an uncountable number of self-released 3"cd's (his format of choice) in lovingly designed sleeves (all made by himself). in the past years some of these releases have been compiled into amazing albums such as "slaapzucht" on the root strata label, "weleer" on lampse, the "cello recycling" 10"/cd on type records and "bijeen" on kning disk. recent collaborations with stephen vietiello (on the 12k label), freiband, steinbrüchel and other likeminded artists have expanded the horizon veritably. machinefabriek's music has been remixed by the likes of xela, lesser, svarte greiner, alva noto, pita, kim cascone, ben frost, black to comm and others.

only few machinefabriek material has been recorded specifically for an album release but these have always been stand-outs in the vast catalogue. both "marijn" on lampse and "ranonkel" on burning world records were classic recordings, squeezing a large amount of what people love about zuydervelt's music into one album, at the same time giving him the space to expand on new ideas. likewise "dauw" is one of zuydervelt's most subtle & quiet yet refined works. mainly built around small but gorgeous melodies of piano and guitar playing and the crackling sound of dusty vinyl samples, these songs slowly build into intensive hymn-like angel choirs of sheer heavenly beauty.

zuydervelt's output often has drawn comparisons to the likes of fennesz, godspeed, arvo pärt, basinski, tim hecker, phillip jeck, mogwai and earth, which is certainly not all wrong and some of these have been influences in the early stages of his career but he has since developed a strong and individual language all of his own.

mastered by giuseppe ielasi with elegant artwork by zuydervelt himself; metallic print on grey cardboard stock.

[027] black to comm "fractal hair geometry" cd

black to comm is the solo venture of dekorder label boss marc richter. having released two and a half albums on his own label he is slowly establishing himself as one of the more prolific drone artists out there with a forthcoming album on the american digitalis label, a collaborative cd with datashock on ikuisuus, a 7" on the irish trensmat label and a collaboration with xela in the works

"fractal hair geometry“ is richter's most refined and original work to date, picking up where the electrifying drone works of his monumental double-lp left off. like the last records this album is centered around recordings of a variety of vintage organs. while "wir können leider..." often featured pure harmonium sounds and spacious recordings of chuch organ and mellotron, the new album opts for a more electronic, effects-laden sound, sending an old farfisa compact deluxe and casio sk-5 through an armada of analogue & digital effects pedals. the results are massive one-chord drones layered into dense & ecstatic, flickering & pulsating clusters of psychedelic electronic sound. additional wordless vocal effects, hyperventilating & sizzling drum machines and hypnotic violin and guitar noises make for a hyperactive sound that never stands still even though most of the music is pure drones (sometimes consisting of more than 50 recording layers). decidedly simple but gorgeous melodies shine through the mist from time to time, making a black to comm record always much more accessible than your average drone album.

there's even a heavy 4/4 bass drum smuggled into a track dedicated to the late leigh bowery, one of the most enigmatic creative figures of the mid-80's uk club scene (and singer of minty).

guests include jonna karanka (aka kuupuu) on piano, guido möbius on trumpet and current black to comm (live) band members renate nikolaus on violin and ulf schütte (of datashock, aosuke, etc.) adding electronic sounds.

along the lines of the music, seminal german artist oliver ross has created a massive multi-layered neon-coloured collage artwork which is printed on special ultra-heavy cardboard stock.

[026] daniel padden "pause for the jet" cd

since 1995 daniel padden has been a member of volcano the bear, with several highly regarded album releases on nurse with wound's united diaries label, textile and beta-lactam ring records. after his move to glasgow he started the one ensemble of daniel padden as an outlet for his solo recordings with releases on catsup plate, secret eye and textile. when the one ensemble slowly metamorphosed into a band of its own, padden started to record his solo output under his birth name, with last year's "the isaac storm" on the ultra exzema label being the first seminal result.

over the years padden has developed a strong fascination for obscure musics from all over the world (re his recent "epiphanies" article for the wire magazine): mouth organ love-songs from thailand, the ramayana monkey chant from bali, khene pieces from laos; so-called world music from burundi to bulgaria.

combining these interests with his love for british folk and art rock (this heat, robert wyatt), kraut rock (faust), free jazz, the surreal collage techniques of nurse with wound and the odd humour of the residents, he has developed a totally unique and highly personal musical vision without ever sounding overambitious or directionless. gorgeous song-writing is seamlessly transformed into pure fuzz or string drones, suddenly interrupted by some improvised reeds or collapsing percussion, all within the blink of an eye, and never losing its natural flow, "pause for the jet" is already an auspicious aspirant for our "record of the year".

[025] uton - straight edge xxs  lp

"straight edge xxs" is the 2nd vinyl album by finland's uton released in a strictly limited edition of 500 copies on the dekorder label. it comes in a gorgeous full-colour collage sleeve assembled by hirvonen himself. while uton's last dekorder album "alitaju ylimina" (and most of his other recorded works respectively) are hazy lo-fi drone masterpieces for the most part, this is a completely different affair.

recorded straight to tape within one month, right after returning from a 6-month trip to india, these songs (if you could call them songs) are completely out-of-this-world; very short and crazed sketch-like pieces sounding like a nonesuch explorer lp of long lost field recordings from an as yet unexplored continent. or is it world music from an unknown planet recorded by those sublime frequencies guys from mysterious short wave transmissions? well, it is all that and more. it is pure ecstatic expression channelized through psychedelia, free jazz, noise and rural ancient folk music from all over the world in a completely naked, predominantly acoustic setting. one of the purest forms of music you could imagine; while all the familiar uton elements remain evident in a hazy backcloth.

uton is the one-man project of jani hirvonen originally hailing from tampere. hirvonen is one of the most active musicians of the finnish underground scene that has recently presented us the likes of kuupuu, kemialliset ystävät, islaja, paavoharju and lau nau and a seemingly never-ending stream of beautiful and highly original record releases. uton has previously released dozens of cd's, cd-r's and cassettes on a myriad of labels including jewelled antler, pseudo arcana, last visible dog, digitalis, ruralfauna and his own ikuisuus. he has collaborated with amon dude (avarus), anla courtis (reynols), antony milton (black boned angel), ben reynolds, peter wright, phil todd (ashtray navigations) and jan anderzen (tomutonttu, kemialliset ystävät) among others. the latter collaboration (under the hevoset moniker) is released on lp by dekorder simultaneously.

while most one-off meetings between so-called experimental and improvising musicians often sound like bad excuses for a few beers and endless jams this is quite the opposite - a heavy weight championship finale of two like-minded whizkids cross-fertilizing each other with idea after idea, leading to some of the weirdest and quixotic recordings you will have heard of the two. everything you loved about kemialliset ystävät, uton and tomutonttu is contained in hevoset ..... and more. rural psychedelia, out-of-tune plucked and strummed strings, overloaded organs and effect pedals, jani hirvonen's sweet wordless vocals, ecstatic improvised drone collages, bells, backward loops, jungle percussion and tons of unidentifiable sounds and noises shaped into tight 4 - 6 minute tracks.

[023] antonia leukers hasenlove picture-disc lp (limited 300)

"hasenlove" is the debut musical release of hamburg visual artist antonia leukers. she's a founding member of "institut hasenbart", a 10-piece artist collective dedicated to a meta-scientific research of hares and related social, zoological and aesthetical phenomena in reference to the art world and pop culture. leukers has previously created stitched, sewed and animated sculptures while casually growing cucumbers, working for a local in-vitro fertilization hospital and advising young people on erotic issues as a german dr. ruth for a popular online magazine. inspired by a journey to island, hearing local travel guides spontaneously interweaving their narrations with sudden outbursts of folklore chanting and an encounter with wolfgang müller's (die tödliche doris) strategy of transforming and combining his (pseudo-)scientific, documentary and social research into a musical and artistic performance she started to elaborate her fellow artist's lectures with musical renditions.

as a passionate diy home-recording artist she has soldered her own microphones, used cheap toy instruments, gameboys and minidisc recordings of kitchen sounds to create her very own bricolage comic universe. by recycling corny aor mainstream rock/pop songs into some oddly disturbing and wonderfully weird rabbit love songs with newly-made german lyrics and combining these with some truly strange original compositions (ranging from freeform collage to distorted techno to deranged singer/songwriter stuff), she has created a musical love story in 7 parts. spiritually influenced by (though not really sounding alike) german "neue deutsche welle" artists such as der plan and theatrical and surreal performance bands like the residents.

her versions of popular love songs sound like a teenage/female andrew lloyd webber on bad acid. this 1-sided vinyl-only picture-disc lp is a strictly limited edtion of 300 copies. both the gorgeous design and ornamental etching on the b-side have been done by fellow hasenbart founding member renate nikolaus.

[022] felix kubin und das mineralorchester "music for theatre and radio play" lp

we are extremely excited to announce the 1st collaboration between the dekorder label and our old friend, local conspirator and private hair gardener felix kubin.

kubin has achieved world wide reputation by releasing post-dadaist, futuristic ndw-influenced organ&korg smash hits on his own gagarin label, on a-musik, ski-pp, meeuw, diskono et al. he has collaborated with people like us, coolhaven, mark boombastik, asmus tietchens, ensemble intégrales, david fenech, ergo phizmiz, boris d. hegenbart, wojtek kucharczyk and many others. his first recordings date back to his teenage years in the early 1980's, followed by his electroacoustic noise duo klangkrieg and the pseudo-communist liedertafel margot honecker.

right from the start felix kubin has written and recorded music for films (hence the title of his first album) by the likes of mariola brillowska and anke feuchtenberger and continues the german tradition of "hörspiel" (radio play) with works such as "territerrortorium", "nachtspeicher", "orpheuspsykotron" and "syndikat für gegenlärm" (with guest appearances by matmos, dat politics and wolfgang müller of die tödliche doris).

some of kubin's most gorgeous and adventurous works are his contributions to "the raft" (a radio play by the mysterious xentos bentos of the homosexuals, directed by lukas simonis of coolhaven, trespassers w, dull schicksal) and his soundtracks for theatre plays by branko simic ("zufall", based on a short story by vladimir nabokov) and the notorious schorsch kamerun. the latter (known in germany as a member of goldene zitronen) directed "hollywood elegien" based on a song cycle by bert brecht and hanns eisler. now the best parts of these works are for the first time available on lp and cd, simply (and aptly) titled "music for theatre and radio play".

while the musical spectrum on this release covers a variety of styles and moods it’s still almost immediately recognisable as a typically kubin-ist work featuring the main ingredients his records and body-and-mind-boggling live shows are famous for. twisted rhythms & playfully clever arrangements that could have been created by a mutated reincarnation of the legendary juan esquivel; hauntingly ethereal tracks sounding like a narcoleptic john carpenter playing angelo badalamenti arrangements; contorted big band music, pre-war schlager and vaudeville sent through a malfunctioning pre-digital time machine; ennio morricone cloned as a russian male choir; instrumental workers' songs hanns eisler might have imagined in a feverish nightmare  - it’s all there, and more!

[021] black to comm / aosuke split-lp

limited edition of 500 copies!

this vinyl-only split-lp release is a meeting of two of the most interesting bands coming out of hamburg, germany at this moment, both continuing the long tradition of both challenging and explorative music coming from this city in the last decades. from krautrock to the origins of the so-called neue deutsche welle from experimental sound artists to some of the finest pop ambient, hamburg is regularly spitting out some of the most singular artists on this planet. both aosuke and black to comm have absorbed influences from all these sources (and a million others) while working towards their very own individual vision.

the two brand new tracks by black to comm are continuing the massive organ/voice drone alchemy of the last double-lp while refining and personalizing his sound, reaching new heights of blazing sonic mysticism.

aosuke have decided to home-record their new material, continuing their loop-oriented, monotone yet highly melodic ambient journeys. working with repetition and small abstractions, all instrumental "loops" are played by hand and recorded live without overdubs (one of the main principles of the guitar/electronics duo), creating surprisingly concrete dormant and somnambulistic soundscapes while fortunately completely lacking the washy and drowsy effects of most ambient music.

black to comm is the one-man project of marc richter who is the brain behind the dekorder label as well. so far he has released two albums on his own label ("rückwärts backwards" and "wir können leider nicht etwas mehr zu tun...").

aosuke is the duo of tobert knopp and ulf schütte, the latter being a label head as well (tape tektoniks). last year they have released their debut "monotone spirits" album co-released by hamburg's audiolith label and south germany's meudiademorte label.

[020] uton "alitaju ylimina" lp

limited edition of 500 copies!

"alitaju ylimina" is the first vinyl album by finland's uton released in a strictly limited edition of 500 copies in a marvellous fold-out sleeve with a full-colour drawing by uton himself on the outer sleeve and some fierce black&white illustrations by dutch artist christelle gualdi inside.

uton is the one-man project of jani hirvonen originally hailing from tampere and currently travelling and recording in india. hirvonen is one of the most active musicians of the finnish underground scene that has recently presented us the likes of kuupuu, kemialliset ystävät, islaja, paavoharju and lau nau and a seemingly never-ending stream of beautiful and highly original record releases.

the music of uton is no exception there, drawing inspirations from psychedelia to free jazz to pure ecstatic drones and noises using a wide range of acoustic instruments from various parts of the globe and a bulk of electronics. recorded in glorious lo-fi the mystery of hirvonen’s sound is difficult to pinpoint; sheer ravishing beauty, elegancy and variegation is stashed behind a wall of grey, inscrutable haze – gorgeous melodies and voices, reeds and alien sounds gleaming through the mist from time to time, shimmering like diamonds through layers of dust.

uton has previously released dozens of cd’s, cd-r's and cassettes on a myriad of labels including jewelled antler, pseudo arcana, last visible dog, digitalis and his own ikuisuus. he has collaborated with amon dude (avarus), anla courtis (reynols), antony milton (black boned angel), ben reynolds, peter wright, phil todd (ashtray navigations) and jan anderzen (tomutonttu, kemialliset ystävät) among others. the latter collaboration (under the hevoset moniker) will be released on lp by dekorder later this year.

[018] kuupuu "unilintu" lp

"unilintu" is the second of two vinyl-only lp's on the dekorder label compiling the best material from kuupuu’s first four cd-r and cassette releases, this time presenting a slightly darker and even more coherent sonic vision compared to last year’s gorgeous "yökehrä" lp which we sold out immediately (2nd edition is now available).

here’s what we said about the first lp:

jonna karanka aka kuupuu is one of the main movers of the (deservedly) much hyped finnish psychedelic free folk scene. originally hailing from tampere she is known as a core member of avarus, anaksimandros, kukkkiva poliisi and maniacs dream. additionally, she has recently started hertta lussu ässä with lau nau and islaja and has collaborated with tomutonttu (aka jan anderzen of kemialliset ystävät) and paavi (as lussu ja paavi).

this lp is a beautifull collection of haunting (sometimes spooky) home baked freeform folk songs, strange lo-fi loops, vocal drones and psychedelic cut-ups, made using weirdly tuned plucked and strummed strings, bells, clattery percussion, unidentifiable wind instruments, backwards tape loops and a ton of other noisemakers all played and recorded by herself; accompanied by her distinctive voice (often looped and layered) with vocals sung and whispered in her native finnish language making the whole atmosphere even more haunting and mysterious. jonna karanka creates an intimate space where the listener feels like sitting next to her in a small chamber or outside in the woods where kuupuu sings a lullaby just for him.

[017] john hegre "colors don't clash" cd

finally, here it is! an album we’ve been waiting for since starting the label a few years ago and it was worth waiting every minute. while maintaining a busy release and tour schedule with jazzkammer (now called jazkamer, a duo with lasse marhaug) which recently included their new glorious metal album for smalltown supersound (aptly titled „metal music machine“), the „paniccd on the bottrop-boy label and concerts all over the world (including south america, south east asia, japan, etc.), his marvellous „balladsduo album with maja ratkje on dekorder and countless other collaborative projects, he has been working on his solo debut album whenever time allowed.

returning to his original instrument the electric guitar, hegre has produced an extremely diverse album mutating from hypnotic computer-loop drones to some glorious free analogue noise, from abstract banjo-like sketches to thick washes of sludgy doom metal and roaring noise rock, from divine electroacoustic sounds to otherworldly country-esque and classical guitar picking, all within one track, and often all at once, with small and simple melodies lurking within huge drifts of sound. and not one element sounds out of place here, it’
s rather like the collages of seemingly inappropriate bits and pieces create a totally unique surreal and creepy atmosphere. dozens of small details suddenly appear from nowhere, transforming even the most brutal noise attacks into complex textural arrangements, making this the most essential guitar album of the year.

the title? it´s a quotation from the late philip charles lithman aka snakefinger. at the end of an interview for the july number of the norwegian music magazine puls in 1987 he was asked if he had any final message for the norwegian people, and he did, his message was "colors don´t clash, don´t worry they never do". he died of a heart attack on july 1st, same day as his single "there´s no justice in life" was released.

[015] john hegre / maja ratkje "ballads" cd

"ballads" ist the first collaborative album by two key figures of the norwegian noise, improv, experimental, whatever-you-call-it music scene. anyone expecting a rackety wall of distorted feedback guitars and voices will be gently surprised though by the sparse and intimate sketches to be found on this wonderful record. songs are stripped down to their raw bones using only the most essential elements to reveal the soul behind every single sound. superfluous effects seem to be completely absent, creating an open space for miniscule details, always ready to implode into noisier tracks such as "private matter". the album culminates in "hammock moods", a quietly mesmerizing epic finale with maja ratkje humming a beautiful melody over hegre's gorgeous near-psychedelic guitar playing. let's all hope for a sequel to this album!

maja ratkje is a member of spunk (rune grammofon) and noise duo fe-mail. her solo album "voice" (produced in collaboration with jazzkammer) got an award of distinction at prix ars electronica in 2003. in 2001 she was the first composer ever to receive the arne nordheim distinction award. she has collaborated with jaap blonk, ikue mori, otomo yoshihide, wolf eyes, matmos, lasse marhaug, jason forrest, kim hiortoy, ulver and many others.

john hegre is a member of jazzkammer / jazkamer (smalltown supersound), kaptein kaliber, golden serenades, new boiling near the fjords (with members of alog) and others. his first solo 3"cd came out on dekorder in 2003. jazkamer will release their aptly titled new album "metal music machine" in spring 2006 and hegre is working on an as yet untitled solo album for dekorder.

[014] black to comm "rückwärts backwards" lp/cd

black to comm is an alias for dekorder label owner marc richter's audio excursions. "rückwärts backwards" is his debut full-length album recorded between 2003 and 2005 in his adopted hometown hamburg and his childhood home in the black forest located in the south of germany. with a background in many musical styles (from psychedelia to pure computer music) btc's music is never easy to pin down.

this album is essentially created from scratchy shellac and vinyl loops merged with ambience field recordings (with some voice manipulations and kitchen gamelan thrown in for good measure). the warm hiss of analogue recording techniques combined with the apparently antique sounds of vintage organs, acoustic & electric guitars, pianos, glockenspiel and mbira used on these tracks generate a kind of hyperreal, fake nostalgia playing with one's perception of a pseudo-recollection. the layering and hypnotic repetition of short loops extracted from old psychedelia, free jazz, vaudeville and traditional records reveal a haunting melodic quality sometimes not distinguishable within the original source material, evoking a hovering feeling of bittersweet melancholy with an omnipresent, slightly disturbing atmosphere hidden beneath the surface.

the 8 songs constantly sway back and forth between simple, almost naive arrangements and dense surrreal drones with rare, yet intense distorted climaxes making this album one constantly absorbing listening experience.

[013] guido möbius "dishoek" cd

guido möbius is a man on the go. out of his berlin officerecordingstudio he operates the autopilot music publishing house and promotes record labels such as sonig, smalltown supersound and klangbad. additionally he runs the small emphase label releasing among other things a 7" series of 1-instrument music and the last album by anne laplantine. and first and foremost he is a musician, now concentrating on his solo work and live appearances with bass player alexej gottschau after playing in various band formations.

two years ago his solo debut "klisten" had the press and music lovers everywhere turn somersaults when hearing this wonderfully whimsical smorgasbord of countless tiny sounds and instruments. all material on "klisten" had been strangely interwoven, laminated and set against each other yet always remaining songs, almost pop. and despite all the complexity and craftiness it never sounded difficult, academic or pompous. one could dive into this music or simply move within it and discover a new plant behind each corner. but one would never be led astray by it. and if you walked the same path a few days later suddenly new buds had grown and someone might have carved a few weird symbols into the trees.

and just before we started to miss guido möbius he surprises us with "dishoek", his second album, recorded for hamburg’s dekorder label. again featuring a conglomeration of acoustic and electrical instruments (guitar, bass, violin, cornet drums, synthesizer, clarinet among other things.) and a variety of guests, so that one hardly dares to call it a solo album. still everything is magically held together by one single person. melodies and noises, styles and individual characteristics, intelligence and humour collide and become friends for live. we hear krautrock minus rock, folk minus tronics, pop minus popular; psychedelia meets improvisation meets electronica without the slightest know-it-all approach. styles get intermingled, copulate and finally dissolve completely to become only music without the need to be labelled because it is functioning completely within its own context and never fails to astonish. the computer remains a tool, never an end in itself and the alleged separation of acoustic and electronic music becomes completely obsolete. with its wily down-to-earth approach "dishoek" proves that an eagerness to experiment and the will to explore unknown territories do not have to sound arduous yet always have the ability to gently surprise any adventurous listener.

tu m’ is a duo from città sant' angelo, a small village in central italy. emiliano romanelli and rossano polidoro have started tu m’ in 1998 (named after marcel duchamp’s last painting) and since then released several critically acclaimed records on labels such as phtalo, ers/staalplaat, fällt, aesova and boxmedia. they have recently started steno with frank metzger of oval (debut lp coming soon on the en/of label). they have collaborated with steve roden for an album release on rossbin and are currently working with simon fisher turner on some new tracks to be included on his forthcoming album on mute records.

additionally they run the cd-label mr. mutt (another duchamp reference) and curate the mp3-label tu m’p3 releasing soundtracks to webcam pictures by a diverse range of artists such as donna summer, dälek, chris cutler, noel akchote, farmers manual, voice crack, alan licht, david grubbs and dekorder artists such as voks, un caddie renversé dans l’herbe and black to comm.

their new album titled "just one night" still contains their trademark improvisations on guitars, alto sax, flutes, toy keyboards, alto flugelhorn, percussion, harmonica, etc. looped, processed and edited into compositions, combined with field recordings and the odd vinyl sample used occassionally. these raw materials are sculpted into beautifully melancholic songs all dealing with the "night" theme, making this their most coherent album yet.

the album has been mastered by marcus schmickler (pluramon, mimeo, etc.). a new track by tu m’ has appeared on the latest wire tapper compilation.

[009] pxp "nada" cd

what is pxp?

pxp is the short identifier of the department for penetration and perversion, a farmersmanual subunit located at [http://wrzk.web.fm/]. necessarily in the spirit of the superunit the department's activities touch a wide range of areas with interleaving methodology and the sonic mapping of which being one subset. the topics being covered might be distilled to exploration of dynamic and selforganizing structures.

---

what is nada?

nada is the second realworld manifestation in the shape of an audio cd precipitated by pxp on impulse of hamburg based experimental music label dekorder. much in the style of an earlier work , "while(p){print"."," "x$p++}", wavetrap, 2002, which has received an honourable mention in digital musics at ars electronica the same year for being perceived as "a jutting mass of digitized disturbance that fueled our direct reckoning with destabilized mathematics" by the jury, nada represents a snapshot of the landscape a couple of metamorphoses further down the same n-dimensional road, 5 < n < infty/2, but giving in to a slight pull from self-sufficient, specialized systems living in close proximity to more open, general purpose communication networks.

[007] un caddie renversé dans l'herbe "like a packed cupboard but quite..." lp/cd

the curiously titled „like a packed cupboard but quite...“ is the 2nd release for the dekorder label by un caddie renversé dans l’herbe a.k.a. dídac p. lagarriga from barcelona, spain after his beautiful 3cd „now there’s a weird taste in my mouth“.

not unlike his previous works which have been compared to the likes of pascal comelade, asa chang & junray, penguin café orchestra and steve beresford, the album
s using repetition and simplicity, melody and warmth, charm and a positive naivity to create an addictive, often hypnotic muzak; never overloaded, full of space for tiny surprising ideas/sounds and little elements and influences to unfold their inner beauty. this is contemporary and timeless music without the urge to be (post-) modern just for the sake of being so.
still featuring the unusual but fascinating combination of african instruments such as the balaphon, mbira, kalimba, berimbau with modern software, piano, cello, guitar, bass, melodica, chimes, the overall theme of the album is a direct reaction to the widely used (and misleading) term of „exotica“ often found in the writings about lagarriga’s music and other so-called „world music“. often used by our beloved „1st world“ to create a pseudo-romantic marketing niche these terms have become empty labels for cultures we don’t know too well or are too lazy to learn about without accepting the fact that everything everywhere is (or, at least, can be) influenced by anything else. we are not living in a hermetic capitalized surrounding but too often act as if we are...

lagarriga’
s music is neither „world music“ nor „exotica“ but simply a music that is trying to be inclusive, embracing everything happening around him (be it music, art, writing and/or simply, and most important, everyday life) in contrast to the often encased exponents of „our“ western culture, without denying the fact that all of us (including lagarriga and, well, myself) are personally thinking and acting within those stereotypes way too often (unfortunately).
