3 TOED SLOTH

... Against The Odds

(Unwucht - UN03) 2x7-inch $14.00

Six previously unreleased tracks of simian stomp, recorded live to half-inch tape in 1993. A planned seven-inch remained unrealized and the reels took a nap for seventeen years until Unwucht came to the rescue. Hand-photocopied gatefold sleeve, with a color postcard. Edition of 295.

ACTUARY / BACTERIA CULT

Bacteria Cult / Actuary

(Vomitcore) split 7-inch $7.00

Dark, haunting strangeness from Bacteria Cult, who put the "uuuuuul" back in peculiar. This experimental group features Chris Dodge (Despise You, Lack of Interest, Spazz), Kevin Fetus (Fetus Eaters, Lack of Interest), Eddie Nervo (+Dog+, Destroy Date, Final Solution), and Jay Howard (Circuit Wound, Wire Werewolves). The Los Angeles based Actuary made a big impact on our comrades at Dead Formats: "Really intense noise ... full of hatred.... I felt a little ill.... It sounds like someone is being stabbed and tortured.... It's brutal in a way that nothing will ever be brutal again. This is horror." Blue vinyl.

AFFLICTIS LENTAE / AUSTRASIAN GOAT

The Austrasian Goat / Afflictis Lentae

(At War With False Noise - ATWAR047) split 7-inch $8.00 (Out-of-stock)

One track each of machine-gun, blasting, old school black metal. First in a series of split 7s.

AGATHOCLES / SISSY SPACEK

Agathocles / Sissy Spacek

(Ultra Eczema - UE77) split 7-inch $12.00 (Out-of-stock)

The first in Ultra Eczema’s year-long series of monthly 7s in which anything goes: from the acid of Pierre Elitair to the mincecore of Agathocles or a prank by Frieder Butzmann. This one has ten songs by each band: Agathocles (raw, muffled, gruntly, painful, fast) drills holes in your skull and pours in a cocktail of ass-grinding diarrhea recorded during a rehearsal before a tour of Mexico; Sissy Spacek shaves off your nose and eyelashes with Gerogerigegege-style noisecore (a brutal slap of preparé right there). Fold open cover designed by Debby Tyfus, with lyrics, etc. 300 copies

ALTAR OF FLIES / DARKSMITH

Every Actual Body / Brittle Bones

(Hasten & Korset - 043) 7-inch $10.00 (Out-of-stock)

Concrète mixed with industrial. Darksmith does very little with not much at all -- the sound of movement in an empty, open room captured on cassette tapes crudely and minimally manipulated. At once meditative and unsettling. Sweden's Mattias Gustafsson scrapes and grinds metal like a true demon. Drawings by Tom Darksmith. Artwork by Daniel Fagerström. With a postcard. Clear vinyl. Edition of 100.

ALTERED BEAST

Altered Beast

(Blak Skul - BSR005) 7-inch $9.75 (Out-of-stock)

Kansas City’s Altered Beast delivers riffs with the precision and rhythm of a death metal band — equal parts metal and hardcore without being metallic hardcore — punctuated with heavy youth crew breakdowns. Their blue-collar truth-dealer spits tales of city life with venom-tinged PMA. The result is tough-guy hardcore if your idea of a tough guy is a working class everyman, crushed by the slings and arrows of our post-industrial reality, but refusing to give up in his pursuit of some elusive transcendence. Besides a self-titled demo tape, this seven inch is the product of three years of gigging with countless unrecognized bands worthy of our respect, as well as opening for the likes of Napalm Death, Exodus, Madball, Phobia, Voivod, Prong, Noisem, Iron Reagan, etc. Edition of 440

ALVARIUS B

Burmese Military Mandolin b/w Cadenza Freedom

(Chocolate Monk) 7-inch $12.00

Of interest to fans of SCG's mellower, ethno-forgered avant-psych material. From 1999. Semen colored vinyl.

OREN AMBARCHI / CHRIS CORSANO / PAUL FLAHERTY / C. SPENCER YEH

Ambarchi / Flaherty, Corsano, Yeh

(Krayon Recordings) split 7-inch $9.00

The Flaherty, Corsano, Yeh Trio's oceans of bawling drum kit fire and fluttering string overtones fuse a complex web of ear asterism. Infiltrated by a woozy sax line that soon reduces in duration and increases the overall vehemence, with fragmented reed chewing rasp and roar joining myriad coordinates in this dense labyrinth of free magic. On the flip, an unexpected monolith from Ambarchi, stunningly crafted harmonic percolations of feedback glare, and riff particles slam into tantric drum force blast beats by Matt Skitz Sanders. Art by Paul Coors.

OREN AMBARCHI / LASSE MARHAUG

Devil Wolf Men

(Pica Disk - PICA010) 7-inch $10.00 (Out-of-stock)

A tapestry of location recordings and studio collaborations made during Ambarchi and Marhaug's tour of China in 2005.

OREN AMBARCHI / LASSE MARHAUG

ELISA AMBROGIO / KARL BAUER

Yankee Psychic Hygine

(Spirit of Orr) Used 7-inch $3.00 (Out-of-stock)

Explosive subtle motion and jarring delicateness collide and co-mingle through two long sides on this collaborative joint by one half of The Magik Markers and the psych mind behind Axolotl.

ANXIETY OF LOVE

Beauty

(Peripheral - PM6) 7-inch $15.00 (Out-of-stock)

COMING SOON. Soundtracks of human erosion, soul disgust, sorrow and violence and brilliance, and refusal. Hexes cast back harder and blacker, sublime and childlike and concrete and diamond. Special sleeve, insert. Edition of 99

AROB / SOOTTYB

They Sent Me Into Space Today b/w Cicadas Birds + Gtr

(Greatdividing - DD011) split 7-inch $10.00

Arob and Soottyb’s collaboration “They Sent Me Into Space Today” mixes and dweedles electronics “until they slip over your head like a soft mosquito blanket,” according to Byron Coley, who also pegs the instrumentation (drums and “flapper”) as the tools for accessing a “wormhole into some strange rock universe.” Arob’s “Cicadas Birds + Gtr,” as the title suggests, combines field recordings from the countryside with a home recording made in a bedroom in the city. Plays well on either 45 or 33 rpm, which is rarely a bad sign.

ARV & MILJÖ

Arv & Miljö

(I Dischi Del Barone - IDDB008) 7-inch $10.00 (Out-of-stock)

A ten-minute ode to Gothenburg, focusing almost entirely on the sounds of seagulls and rain, with only tiny hints of the troubled A&M past. Recordings from a window. Edition of 200

ASDSSKA

Hold On

(Family Bookstore - FBR01) 7-inch $5.25

Asdsska is a duo consisting of Aska Matsumiya (The Sads, Moonrats) and David Scott Stone (The Sads, Get Hustle, Unwound, Melvins). Matsumiya is a classically trained pianist and the A-side features a slow Satie-esque piano refrain accompanied by her delicate voice and Stone's ethereal modular synthesizer drones. The B-side, "We Feel it More Than They Do," is an ambient instrumental variation on Hold On's melody.

ASH POOL

Saturns Slave

(Hospital - HOS229) 7-inch $9.00 (Out-of-stock)

Two new tracks of raw black metal from the cold gas of the cosmic crucifixion. 900 copies on blue vinyl and 100 on clear vinyl.

ASHTRAY NAVIGATIONS

The "o" Mouth Direct Input Raygun

(Turgid Animal - TA409) 7-inch $9.00

New tracks from Phil Todd and Mel Delaney. Leeds UK's finest experimental movers and shakers of the last decade or so. Perhaps their noisiest material yet. Limited to 250 copies on black vinyl.

ED ASKEW

Here We Are Together Again b/w Yellow Dollars

(Destijl - IND086) 7-inch $6.00 (Out-of-stock)

The last of the vintage, tipple-era Askew, before the fingers cramped and began tickling digital ivory. Two wondrous cuts that would've been included on the Little Eyes CD were time not space: live versions of "Here We Are Together Again" and "Yellow Dollars," taken from David Porter's Show on WYBC, November 1969.

ASTAROTH

Satanispiritus b/w Lady of The Moon

(Unseen Forces - UF004) 7-inch $7.50 (Out-of-stock)

Reissue of the elusive and only known recording by this mysterious late 1960s Motor City proto-street metal ensemble. Two powerful offerings of Goetic psychedelia and occult street metal magic. Edition of 300.

ASTRAL SOCIAL CLUB / GLOCKENSPIEL

Astral Social Club / Glockenspiel

(Krayon Recordings - KR014) split 7-inch $8.25

Machines groan and distant melodies ascend on the face-chewer by Neil Campbell on one side, while Glockenspiel’s vinyl debut on the flip weaves wooly tones with the harmonics of rubbed toms and bowed metal. A snow-blind haze of feedback, amplified string scrape and analogue electronics.

ASUNA

100 Keyboards b/w 100 Rock

(Meeuw Muzak - MM045) 7-inch $6.25 (Out-of-stock)

A headscratcher from this Kanazawa-based sound artist and general experimental noise chef. Two pieces are sourced from a recent installation work of a hundred toy keyboards, with the A-side bearing the disassociated feel of a Super-8 footage loop — bleached colors, perhaps a lone bird wheeling in the sky, or a holiday fragment of a blinking child with an uncertain smile walking toward the camera, clutching an ice cream. A beautiful, nebulous, everything-and-nothing sound, while the noisier B-side maintains a sort of relentless calm, like the optimum flow of a factory environment that 19th century socialists might have shrugged at. A demonstration of the patterns which emerge from the balance of order and chaos. Subtly energizing.

ATELIER MÉDITERRANÉE

Atelier Méditerranée

(Bruit Direct Disques - BRD6) 7-inch $12.00 (Out-of-stock)

Music by children from the Institut Médico Educatif Ambroise Croizat in Saint Ouen, performed and recorded as part of a workshop led by David Lemoine (Cheveu) and Antoine Capet. Arranged by Lemoine, this “outsider electro-noise or something” throbs with the vibe of disturbed humanity. Part of a series that includes the homeless, convicts in jail, and street musicians.

ATRAX MORGUE

Omicidio

(BloodLust! - B!146) 7-inch $9.00 (Out-of-stock)

The A-side of this new single by cult Italian death-industrialists Atrax Morgue was originally submitted as an alternate B-side to the Her Guts 7-inch (Bloodlust 2005), but the unsettling "Sinfonia Per Un Sadico" was chosen for that record instead, leaving “Omicidio” shelved and untouched until after Marco Corbelli’s death in 2007. It is vocal-driven Atrax Morgue song favored by Bloodlust, while the B-side is a 2009 remix/edit of "Autoerotic Death" (a choice segment of heavy, dark analog synth). Multicolor marble vinyl (ranging in tenor from dark bruises to sick bile spit up by a dying plague victim). Edition of 500.

AUBE / RLW

Organized

(Meeuw Muzak) Used 10-inch $12.00

RLW used recordings of an electronic organ and a ringing bell both played by Akifumi Nakajima. Aube used recordings of a church organ made by Ralf Wehowsky. Red vinyl from the mid-’90s. Edition of 300

AUBE

Pulse Resonator

(Praxis Dr. Bearmann) Used LP + 7-inch $35.00

Coherent VCO recordings from 1995. “Highly electric and often piercing sound,” says Freak Animal, “but not very ripping like loudest of the noise. More ‘artistic’ with perfection on capturing the sonic qualities.” Red twelve-inch vinyl. Clear seven-inch vinyl. With obi. Numbered edition of 275.

AUFGEHOBEN

Axilogue / Thermidor One Five

(White Denim - WD12) 7-inch picture disc $10.00

Crafted in their fine tradition, Aufgehoben continue to carve harsh chunks of noise with their first departure on seven-inch vinyl. Guitar and electronics sound like neither, while sprawling percussion tumbles across the rotten landscape. The two tracks on this monochromatic record jump right for the jugular, leaving little time for subtlety or reflection. Not recommended for antique styluses. 524 copies

AUNT MARY

Almost Dead

(At War With False Noise - ATWAR076) 7-inch $9.00 (Out-of-stock)

Aunt Mary's most recent record was a split seven-inch with Man Is The Bastard in 1992. Their total noisecore combines very basic drum beats (resembling pipes banged on a couple of industrial tanks), feedback, wailing guitar, and brutal vocals, all utterly maxed-out. Not too dissimilar to early AxCx. Edition of 300. Full-color sleeve.

AUSTRASIAN GOAT / CHAMBRE FROIDE

The Austrasian Goat / Chambre Froide

(At War With False Noise) split 7-inch $7.75 (Out-of-stock)

The second in the Austrasian Goat split seven-inch series delivers more funeral doom from the home town team, totally desperate stuff. Chambre Froide is Darkthrones-style raw black metal. Crusty, filthy.

AUTOEROTICHRIST / RICHARD RAMIREZ

Birthright

(Worldmadefleshrecordings - 001) 7-inch $12.00

From 1996.

L’ AUTOPSIE A REVELE QUE LA MORT ETAIT DUE A L’AUTOPSIE

Ich verkündige festtage, furcht, etliche nachrichten, beweinenswerten Tod

(Éditions Vibrisse - iiss04) 7-inch (lathe cut) $15.00

Inscrutable tape manipulated field recordings by AKA_Bondage, Anla Courtis, Franq De Quengo, Ogrob, that reference the 500-year-old death knell at Strasbourg Cathedral. Serene yet unsettling. Two inserts. Edition of 33.

BALINESE BEAST

Soft Offerings

(Balinese Beast) 7-inch $15.00

Three tracks of frenetic cut-up rhythm coming from treated feedback and overdriven saxophones, recorded live at Olga’s Laundry in Athens, Greece. Includes two inserts. Edition of 287.

BARK HAZE / OUR LOVE WILL DESTROY THE WORLD

Bark Haze / Our Love Will Destroy the World

(Krayon Recordings - KR009) split 7-inch $8.25

OLWDtW’s Campbell Kneale (ex-Birchville Cat Motel) closes in on the glistening, levitation altar, with backwards bliss-shimmer, spooked chant, and analogue squawk’n’squeal. Bark Haze (Thurston Moore and Andrew MacGregor) hit back with focused power-drone guitar dueling from the heart of the bong.

BASTARD NOISE

Uncertainty Principle

(Small Doses - DOSE121) 7-inch $7.50 (Out-of-stock)

Yasutoshi Yoshida of Government Alpha joins the brotherhood of the skull flag on Side A for a creeping, crawling track where dark ambient swells underpin Eric Wood’s trademark vocals and noise loops. Side B has the harsher track, with Hiroshi Hasegawa of Astro tearing through synth lines with blasts of noise while leaving room for Wood’s growled and screamed vocals. Olive green vinyl, printed vellum envelopes with an insert.

BATS / SONGS

Bats / Songs

(Spring Press - SP03) split 7-inch $10.00 (Out-of-stock)

Two tracks of signature understated NZ guitar-pop on one side (an excerpt from the Bats’ The Guilty Office album and an unreleased outtake from the same sessions); two tracks by the photographer Max Doyle’s Sydney-based group on the flip (an acoustic version of “Keeping it Clean” and an unreleased recording of “My Number”). Edition of 500

SEAN BAXTER

Metal / Flesh

(Bocian - BC05) 7-inch $10.00 (Out-of-stock)

This Australian avant garde percussionist’s long-standing preoccupation with extended technique and acoustically generated noise applied to the conventional drumkit in a freely improvised context has helped push the bounds of the acoustic drumkit’s sonic potential (alongside compatriots Robbie Avenaim, Tony Buck, Steve Heather, Joe Talia and Will Guthrie). Baxter’s concise improvisations, performed with unconventional implements, extract unusual timbres from the drumkit. His vast and dense sonic worlds, created without overdubs or processing, allude to avant garde electronic music, Modernist chamber music in the style of Xenakis and Lachenmann, extreme noise and the maximalist spectrum of post-AMM free improv. On “Metal,” piercing untuned aluminium windchimes flail against the rims and membranes of the kit in a chaotic flurry, creating a barrage of stochastic rhythms and accidental harmonies, exploiting the high frequency ranges of metallic sound. “Flesh,” in complete contrast, employs the exclusive use of the body; fingers, hands, fists and elbows strike, coddle and pummel various components of the drumkit, coercing and coaxing more rounded, but equally uncompromising and slightly uncomfortable bottom-end sounds from the instrument.

BEEF

Piel's Session

(Flipped Out) Used 7-inch $2.00 (Out-of-stock)

Four tracks. Distorted, stoned, grungy. From 1996

BEREFT

Tough Man

(BloodLust! - B!066) 7-inch $7.50 (Out-of-stock)

Rhode Island artist Peter Lee (Force Of Nature) crafts a mixture of old-school industrial and power electronics, with intense vocals, tempered by dark, death-industrial-influenced, ambient soundscapes. Eleventh release in the BloodLust! Private 7" series. Plain white sleeve. 300 copies.

LEA BERTUCCI

Light Silence, Dark Speech

(I Dischi Del Barone - IDDB005) 7-inch $10.00 (Out-of-stock)

Intimate and perplexing alto sax by this New York-based artist. Ten stripped-down mesmerizing minutes that owe just as much to free jazz skronk as they do to contemporary sound art. Edition of 200.

MAURIZIO BIANCHI

Das Testament

(Backwards - BW05, BW05-7) LP + 7-inch $45.00 (Out-of-stock)

The two Das Testament suites were recorded in 1982, released by Mectpyo in 1983, and can be included among the most extreme and uncompromising MB recordings; Bianchi’s synthesizer parts and tape loops create an incredibly oppressive soundscape. Remastered for the Backwards edition, his bleak, dark electronics, rhythms, and neutronic effects reach the avowed goal: “to produce technological sounds and in such a way to work on [the] complete realizing of the modern decadence.” The bonus seven-inch on white vinyl includes two previously unreleased tracks: “Defected Piano (Part One)” and Defected Piano (Part Two).” Includes insert. Edition of 100.

BILLY BAO

Bilbo's Incinerator

(w.mo/r - w.mo/r17) 7-inch $15.00 (Out-of-stock)

An atypically gushing review at Siltblog says this 7-inch "erupts like fissures of primordial ash 'n' pumice from a toxic lava of Punk Brut that is most refreshing & revelatory." Art For Spastics concurs, describing it as "abhorrent pummeling scuzzrock that is so extremely harrowing," filled with "unbridled anger and despair." Other people have good things to say about it as well, but fuck 'em.

BITCHIN BAJAS / MOON DUO

Fresh Hair b/w Bopper’s Hat

(Permanent) Used Split 7-inch $4.00

The respective side-projects of Cave and Wooden Shjips make for a good pairing. Each band specializes in minimalist psych obviously influenced by Krautrock, with Bitchin Bajas focusing on melodic repetition while Moon Duo is heavier on rhythm and quite a bit darker. Edition of 750

BIZARRE UPROAR / MACRONYMPHA

Bizarre Uproar / Macronympha

(Trash Ritual - TRASH048) split 7-inch $10.00 (Out-of-stock)

Conflicted pairing of Dominance Aggression. Bizarre Uproar's unrefined Finnish harsh noise (along the lines of the ultra-violence sessions of Liha-Evankeliumi) vs. calculated composition of electronics and raw acoustics from one of the USA's strongest, Macronympha. Two counts of assault with difference of intent. Fold-over sleeve with two double-sided color inserts.

BLACK BUG

Frozen Energy b/w Push You

(Avant! - AV!036) 7-inch $11.00 (Out-of-stock)

Avant’s second Black Bug single features vocals by Shawn Foree (Digital Leather), reestablishes the savage force of the band while at same time probing previously unknown areas. A perfect balance of straightforward, stripped-down synthetic punk and a glance to the dark side of early UK post-punk. Edition of 300

BLACK SUN / THEY ARE COWARDS

Code Black / First and Only

(At War With False Noise - ATWAR063) split 7-inch $7.75 (Out-of-stock)

Black Sun are still as heavy as their Paralyser LP but this rager's much more in the short, fast and loud vein. They Are Cowards play focused, grim, Northern waste-inspired misery, building from a massive Celtic Frost-esque riff. Beastly.

BLACK TO COMM

Black To Comm

(Dekorder) Used 10-inch $5.00

Hamburg computer music artist Marc Richter’s 2003 debut release cascades “short bursts of electronic gibberish, woven into sheets of shimmer that fall through space glistening, then wiggle on the floor with all the grace and beauty of twitching Moray eels.” Clear vinyl. 45 RPM. Edition of 250

BLACKTOP

Mojo Kitty

(In The Red) Used 7-inch $7.00

Three blues punk Molotov cocktails from 1994 by Mick Collins, Alejandro Cuervo, Janet Walker, and Darin Lin Wood, delivering gloriously sludge-crossed feedback, reverb and bad vibes.

KEVIN BLECHDOM

Children’s Suite and Live at PBS

(Dual Plover) 7-inch + CD $15.50 (Out-of-stock)

Possibly the sickest release produced by a label that specializes in a sweet variety of ill. Contrary to expectation, Kevin Blechdom (Belctum From Blechdom, Erase Errata) transforms the Beatles classic “Twist and Shout” into a celebration of prenatal pleasure. The first 500 copies come with a bonus CD of La Bleckles recorded live at PBS FM during her 2006 tour of Australia. Nice ’n’ womby.

BLOD

Käre Jesus b/w Mandys Bil

(I Dischi Del Barone - IDDB013) 7-inch $10.00 (Out-of-stock)

Spun from the circle around Enhet För Fri Musik, Gustaf Dicksson’s nerve-wrecking tape collage work uses found cassettes to create bizarre glimpses of an extremely cold but thrilling north. The private nature of the source material — thrift store gems like home recordings of children singing, random conversations and crude boom box experimentation, sometimes spiced up with sparse instrumentation and always layered with a rudimentary pause-rec-ff-rewind editing — adds a disturbing flavor, as if one has snuck into someone’s living room on a Saturday night and hidden behind the rugged IKEA family couch. The A-side is based on repeated snippets from a Christian congregation in Sweden, while the slow-burning B-side investigates the grueling nature of car-ownership. Edition of 200

BLOOD BOOK

Issue #5

(Blood Book) Magazine + 7-inch $40.00 (Out-of-stock)

Interviews with Boyd Rice, Merzbow, Francis Bacon, Lisa Carver, and Taint. Thirty-six pages, photocopy. Includes seven-inch with “ATF Assault” and “Jagged Visions ’96” by Integrity, and The Kids oF Widney High doing “Let’s Get Busy” and “Pretty Girls.”

BLOWHOLE

One Less Summer

(Tinker) Used 7-inch $2.50

“Nervewracking squall and chatter” is how our friends at Subterranean describe the five tracks here from 1996, “with some soft, low-frequency pillow-rumble that is positively asphyxiating.

BODYSNATCHERS

Frantic b/w Mystery

(540) Used 7-inch $3.00 (Out-of-stock)

2010 reissue of the self-titled debut seven-inch originally released in 1979 by Savage Music. Inspired by the likes of The Gang Of Four, the A-side is a re-write of a Just Urbain song while the flip is a sped up / hacked up cover of “Venus in Furs.” Vocals are more whispered than yelped, the vintage drum machine drone adds a spectral quality, and it has the trademark bass-heavy, non-production values much loved by the Savage Music family.

BONESAW / LOBOTOMIZED

Bonesaw / Lobotomized

(At War With False Noise - ATWAR089) split 7-inch $9.00 (Out-of-stock)

Bonesaw's old-school death metal is fast and raw, with sludgy slow parts and horrible vocals. Lobotomized offer two tracks of punky death metal, similar to Abscess or maybe even newer Darkthrone. Heavy vinyl with full-color insert. Edition of 350.

MARK BOOMBASTIK / MAX GOLDT / FELIX KUBIN

Fog Frog b/w Ladies Ladies

(Meeuw Muzak - MM039) 7-inch $8.00 (Out-of-stock)

The 2003 mix of "Fog Frog" (involving electric heater percussion and subsequently disparaged as "too Neubauten") is updated with judicious sense of organization while retaining the tipsy-sounding execution of the original -- recorded by Goldt in a hotel room with a Fellini-inspired choir of wine-filled glasses. The post-feminist pre-ejaculate that is "Ladies Ladies" gets a gentle re-agitation as well, with Boombastik and Kubin filleting Goldt's words and music from the historical timeline with their human-beatboxing and dada production, respectively.

MARK BOOMBASTIK

Plastik Lieb / Hoffnung

(Meeuw Muzak - MM031) 7-inch $7.00 (Out-of-stock)

A studio piece and a live track by the human beatbox from Berlin, who does his thing with voice, tape loops and effects. Through the years he has worked with Trainingslager, Fischmob, Hofoku Soshi, Funkstoerung, Patric Catani, Felix Kubin, and Khan. Raw and tight beats, pure intensity, and combative notoriety.

BORN AGAINST / MAN IS THE BASTARD

Man Is The Bastard / Born Against

(Vermiform) Used Split 8-inch $18.00

All five “A Call For Consciousness” tracks by the big mac daddies of power violence on one side, and Born Against’s final four recordings on the other, some of their most creative and captivating tracks by a mile, especially “Wearing a Lampshade,” “Five Dollars an Hour” and the killer “My Favorite Housing Project.” From 1994.

MATTIAS BOSS / RAYMOND DIJKSTRA

Ins Kahle Zimmer Sinken Blaue Firne

(Ultramarine - UM024) 7-inch $13.50

Fantastic “chamber” recording from these two masters of the screeching acoustic metal-on-metal -- Amsterdam-based artist Dijkstra (whose extremely personal work, redolent of opium, crusty wallpaper and taxidermy, involves accordion, unknown electronics, and voice) and Swiss violinist extraordinaire Boss. Violin, organ, fork and spoon are the credited instruments here, blowing ice cold gusts into your listening parlor, like twisted classical music from a distant century. Silkscreen jacket. Edition of 100.

THE BOWLES

The Bowles

(Kye - KYE705) 7-inch $11.25 (Out-of-stock)

The briefly extant Australian trio of Matthew P. Hopkins, Christopher Schueler (R.I.P.) and Mary MacDougal came together in 2009 and plied their craft across the patchwork of warehouses, attics and D.I.Y. artspaces connecting the Blue Mountains of New South Wales to inner city Sydney, before imploding later that same year. This six-track overview, recorded live to Dictaphone in Sydney, consists of murky cassette montages, strung-out 3am ballads and exquisite-corpse-style constructs that unify and define an original voice few have heard. Includes color postcard. Edition of 350.

MYKEL BOYD / IRR. APP. (EXT.)

irr. app. (ext.) / Mykel Boyd

(Somnimage - som10009) split 7-inch $12.00

Matthew Waldron's avant-brewski meets Boyd's drones and sputters, like a cicada in Lake Michigan. White vinyl, silver on black silk screened sleeve. Limited to 200 copies

MYKEL BOYD / PAINTING PETALS ON PLANET GHOST

Painting Petals on Planet Ghost / Mykel Boyd

(Somnimage - som10014) split 7-inch $12.00 (Out-of-stock)

The Opalio brothers (My Cat is an Alien) with Ramona Ponzini bring the mellow on the Painting Petals on Planet Ghost side with ambient noise and bells. Boyd's sweet ride consists of processed field recordings. White vinyl in opaque wrap-over sleeve. Limited to 200 copies.

BREN’T LEWIIS ENSEMBLE

Make It Stop

(Training Bra) 7-inch $6.00 (Out-of-stock)

The debut vinyl by this early ’80s free-improv, Smegma-influenced outsider collective of Butte County-based freaks. Found objects, homemade instruments, prerecorded tapes and vinyl, psychotic cover versions of AM fodder, and a resolute lack of music skills abound. "Deeply peculiar," Weird Record of the Week — CMJ. Members went on to play in Vomit Launch and Glands of External Secretion.

BREN’T LEWIIS ENSEMBLE

Refreshing Hemorrhage

(Butte County Free Music Society - 44) 7-inch $8.00

Both versions of “People,” the aloof masterpiece by Mancunian iconoclasts Gods Gift, are covered simultaneously on the A Side, as Bren’t Lewiis shambles along on fuzz guitar, warped keyboards, and Colour Out Of Space field recordings, while the imperious Silvia Kastel intones her dispassionate but resolutely negative critique of mankind. The B Side continues with a severely bent cover of both versions of “O Jackie O,” itself a damaged charm song by Chicago trio ONO, here performed on messed-up kazoo, holiday wrapping paper tube, and tape-manipulated field recordings from the swamp where Annette Funicello’s head was buried by The Allman Bros. An unhealthy tape piece brings the record its queasy conclusion. Overall, totally appalling, but in a good way, like the talent show scene in One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest. Edition of 100.

BULLET IN THE HEAD

Bullet In The Head

(Bulb) Used 7-inch $2.00

Three short tracks of proto-industrial noiserock from 1993

BURNING STAR CORE

Body Blues

(Hospital - HOS182) 7-inch $6.75 (Out-of-stock)

Spencer Yeh’s voice of rapture emerges from the tunnels of noise. Two side-long pieces that drift between driving, nostalgic, road-weary, headlong plunges into human mysteries and sombre, rose-pedal synth write private and voyeuristic existentialism.

BURNING STAR CORE / DEL

Burning Star Core / Del

(Quasi Pop - QPOPREC08) split 7-inch $9.00 (Out-of-stock)

A blend of wild rock energy with anarchic noise weirdness in a complex, explosive, multi-layered sound. Traditional instrumentation (violin, drums + guitars) and noisy, chaos-generating electronics, unified in celebration of the power of primal natural forces and the creative energy of sexual instincts.

FRIEDER BUTZMANN

I Am A 7-inch Single

(Ultra Eczema - UE83) 7-inch $15.00 (Out-of-stock)

The German hero of prank art, weirdo live shows, and real head-scratch records is back with a single about a single. Jacket is a stencil-print of Elvis. Edition of 200.

THE C&B

The C&B

(Siltbreeze - SB132) 7-inch $20.00

The C&B is short for The Cat & Bells Club, a brief 1991 precursor to The Shadow Ring (whose early recordings fuse equal parts Tyrannosaurus Rex’s mystical recitations with Throbbing Gristle’s aural idolatry). The C&B seem divinely born out of the sputtering taps of brown ale that flowed freely down the gullets of various first-generation DIY shufflers, most notably 49 Americans or Door And The Window. And while this is just dumb luck, there's no denying a genus, unintentional as it may be. The templates for the ruminative, droll and original wordsmithing, not to mention the threadbare musical accompaniment, that would soon become the hallmark for The Shadow Ring sound are now available for the first time ever. Four tracks, 300 pressed. Original artwork by Graham Lambkin.

JEFRE CANTU-LEDESMA

Faceless Kiss / Blut Mond

(Emerald Cocoon - EC008) 7-inch $8.00 (Out-of-stock)

Cantu-Ledesma’s guitar beams directly down from Souvlaki Space Station and arrives gorgeously mangled via modular synthesizer. Romantically haloed chorus guitar floats widescreen across relentless static drum machines until the sky splits open in the final movement, spilling burning guitar fragments over everything. The pink-out bliss explored on Love Is A Stream (Type Records, 2010) is unapologetically pop here, and more aggressive. The B-side is a bass-heavy covert floater – night sky music this member of Tarental and The Alps, a regular collaborator with filmmaker Paul Clipson and founder of the Root Strata label. Volume six in Emerald Cocoon’s Alone Together series. Edition of 300.

THOMAS CARNACKI

Where’s My Love, My Eyes Are Gone, The Rains Are Coming

(Alethiometer - WHISTLE06) 7-inch $10.00

A slippery slab of vinacular gravitas that continues the Begemotian crusade initiated with Oar Of Panmuphle in 2012. Once again the streets run red from the exsanguination of countless pomegranates, and this third installment might very well reveal what your darkest imaginings should not hazard to contemplate.

DANIEL CARTER / DISSIPATED FACE

Live At CBGB 1986

(Roaratorio - ROAR30) 7-inch $7.25 (Out-of-stock)

These archival recordings from the NYC punk club capture a moment in time when free jazz got its first chance since Detroit’s Grande Ballroom ca. 1968 to organically meld with sheer metalesque maelstrom. The twisted, thrashing power chords and shrieking licks of Dissipated Face guitarist Kurt “Hologram” Ralske, fueled by the throbbing rhythms of Steve “X Dream” Popkin and Ben “Face” Munves, who alternated on bass and drums, blend with special guest saxophonist Carter’s cathartic alto wail. Cover artwork by Raymond Pettibon.

CHRISTINA CARTER

Obelisk / Tholos

(Emerald Cocoon - EC003) 7-inch $8.00 (Out-of-stock)

A lone voice, tangled bells, the caw of a crow, a plane passing overhead… A fortuitous overlapping of sound moments, trapped in amber an act of white witchcraft, a healing spell that defines time with the merest of tools. Volume one in Emerald Cocoon’s Alone Together series. Edition of 300.

CARLOS CASAS

Siberian Field Recordings / Interview with a Whale Hunter

(Von Archives - VON004) 7-inch $12.00

CASIOTONE FOR THE PAINFULLY ALONE

Graceland

(Rococo) Used 7-inch $4.00

SARAH MARY CHADWICK

This Fits / This Is Familiar

(I Dischi Del Barone - IDDB012) 7-inch $10.00 (Out-of-stock)

Two tracks of just guitar and vocals, stripped down to the bare minimum and driven by an austere ambience, recorded during the Roses Always Die sessions. Edition of 200.

CHARALAMBIDES

Ana / Kata

(Beta Lactam Ring) Used 10-inch $10.00

Two long tracks from 2002 that trade in the currency of stratosphere, sounding like distant decayed echoes of supernovas. “Ana” rings out with phased vocals that dance within quartertones of each other, an extended intro to spacious guitar double helixes swimming through plasma. On the flip, “Kata” resembles lost soundtrack material to a Maya Deren film. Numbered edition of 500

CHARCOAL OWLS

Kid Brother

(I Dischi Del Barone - IDDB010) 7-inch $10.00 (Out-of-stock)

A splendid, minimalistic mixture of post-Savoury Days UK DIY slow-motion pop by Russell Walker and Tom James Scott. Shimmering organ melodies, sparse drumming, piano and field recordings. Edition of 200

CHICKENS

Chicken Shit

(Siltbreeze - SB133) 7-inch $7.00

This debut vinyl from Kyle and Mike (two-thirds of FNU Ronnies, with a drum machine) follows a cassette on Fan Death and a track on Skulls Without Borders 10-inch (Siltbreeze 2009). Prime Euro movers such as early Dieter Meier and Geisterfahrer come to mind as reference points, not to mention the vibe of early Amphetamine Reptile (Halo of Flies' "Insecticide Stomp," in particular). Edition of 400 copies.

CIA DEBUTANTE

Pier

(SDZ) 7-inch $12.00

CIA Debutante has been cultivating its brain fog for years, stashing away in places that consistently experience connectivity issues. Grey humor is a basis for life and the therapy of homemade electronic chaos, the nature of which is yet to be determined, as a reflective blanket. In this techno-cocoon like no other woven by Paul Bonnet (Disposition Matrix), Nathan Roche (Le Villejuif Underground) develops thoughts-counter-brains, his lobes like pet iguanas surfing on the essential vibrations of the useless. The images are there, those of countless extremophilic organisms, fractured cosmic debris, the ocean floor cracking, the international station stalling and a general instability that spreads tirelessly like the devil’s worm in the oldest gold mines. Perpetually reachable on a number that doesn’t exist yet, the duo is once again working wonders with stellar musical foam. Handmade sleeve. Edition of 200

CIRCUIT DES YEUX

Ode to Fidelity

(Destijl - IND085) 7-inch $6.00 (Out-of-stock)

Seemingly inspired by something or someone that has pierced her young, little heart, Haley Fohr has established herself as an ambitious songwriters. Three songs that form part of the sound arc it is difficult to believe has apexed. This single promises to echo between the ears till Fohr's next full-length is complete, surely a monster.

CLEVELAND WRECKING COMPANY


Say There’s A Reason


(Roaratorio - ROAR41) 7-inch $7.50 (Out-of-stock)

The members of this mid-’60s San Francisco combo came from jazz, flamenco and R&B backgrounds, but together their psychedelic brew verges on Blue Cheer heaviness. They gigged everywhere but left behind no recorded artifacts. A deal with Vanguard went nowhere when their manager absconded to Mexico with the advance money on an ill-fated mission to buy a kilo of pot. A later incarnation of the band — with a completely different lineup and musical style — released a 45 that has since become a favorite of crate-digging DJs, but This ain’t That. These two tracks hail from 1967 and 1968. The A-Side was recorded at Nick Gravenites’s studio in Sausalito, while the sonics on the live “Hat Full Of Dreams” recalls VU’s guitar amp boot (with a solo as overdriven and atonal as this, it’s a plus). Liner notes by Jim Moscoso, rare photographs. Edition of 505.

CLIMAX DENIAL

Ritual Smothering

(BloodLust! - B!079) 7-inch $7.50 (Out-of-stock)

COLD CAVE

Painted Nails

(Hospital - HOS226) 7-inch $8.50 (Out-of-stock)

Hospital's first venture directly into the controversial and rhythmic world of trance, power noise, synth pop, and '80s industrial music. Three authentically morose, epic anthems with the texture of a shattered champagne glass. Imagine a highly damaged, Downward Spiral-era demo hitting the raw nerve of a heart, where all breaths freeze in rapture and all feelings croak in the blood of the beat-less heart.

From 1997.

CONSTANT PAIN

Shadow Of A Lonely Man

(Destijl) Used 7-inch $10.00

2009 reissue of 1996 about which 7 Awkward Inches said “Nasty little hermit bastard locks himself in a room and poops out hyper-dense alcho-folk over two sides of seemingly moss-encrusted vinyl. I’m a huge fan of music that is as depressing as humanly possible. I hope he didn’t die, though.”

CONSTRAIN / WRONG HOLE

Mutual Transgressions b/w Solitary Solace

(Oxen - OXEN011) 7-inch $6.00 (Out-of-stock)

Wrong Hole’s Nial Morgan slashes paths through forests of electro-tape destruction with sleep-deprived swagger with “Mutual Transgressions.” his compositional prowess is on rare and inspiring form throughout Mutual Transgressions’ specifically obtuse personal narrative. On the flip, the equally malicious and unhinged “Solitary Solace” by Contrain’s Kevin McEleny ladders to a crushing apex of sublime cacophony. Edition of 100

CONTINGENT

Previously unreleased cold-wave synth punk by this Brussels group that rose in 1979 from the ashes of Chainsaw, Streets, X-Pulsion.

Dead Excitement

(Bunkerpop) 7-inch $8.00 (Out-of-stock)

Reissue of the first seven by Dutch post-punkers, originally self-released in 1981 with appropriated Rock Against Records logo. If later material is comparable to Joy Division, this could be considered their Warsaw-era: rhythm-driven, upbeat punk with a dark vibe, pulsing with jagged guitars and snarled yet blasé vocals. Includes all original artwork, extra photos and a band history by an original member.

CRANK STURGEON / GASTRIC FEMALE REFLEX

Untitled

(Gold Soundz - GS31) split 7-inch $10.00 (Out-of-stock)

Gastric Female Reflex transmits songs through the cackle of thirty-meter Bronze Age jump ropes, and then swats them with unspooled tape from faulty tape recorders. On the flipside, deepwoods Maine-based Crank Sturgeon takes a similar story and runs it into the side of a convent full of shark-eating nuns, who respond with high-powered leaf blowers, stopping now and again to play a little violin and pee in their Dixie Cups. Not your typical avant electro-acoustic record, but still glorious, spacious, snakey, and primitive.

CRASH COURSE IN SCIENCE

Crash Course In Science

(Vinyl on Demand - VOD67) 3xLP + 7-inch $75.00 (Out-of-stock)

Legendary minimal synth / wave band from Philadelphia formed in 1979. Choosing toy instruments and live drums out of necessity, CCIS began by experimenting with a series of recording devices. The toy instruments gave way to crude drum machines and “Frankenstein"-type homemade instruments. Their first seven-inch (also included with bonus tracks) introduced listeners to their noisy, unpredictable world and went on to become a classic minimal synth record. In 1981 they went in a darker, more sinister direction, resulting in “Signals from Pier Thirteen” (included are eight unreleased demo tracks from this period). “Cardboard Lamb” and “Flying Turns” gained exposure through club play during the '80s. Two live recordings from 1980 and 1981 are also part of this box set, including a performance opening for the Philip Glass ensemble in Philadelphia. The third LP, Near Marineland, contains completed mixes of previously unreleased studio material (along with remixes) arranged and produced by John Wicks, CCIS’s original producer.

CREMASTER / KOMORA A

Haz / Crystal Dwarf Opens His Eyes

(Monotype) 7-inch $9.75

A beastly, dynamic noise piece on one side by Ferran Fages (feedback, mixing board) and Alfredo Costa Monteiro (electroacoustic devices). Bitter, swirling electronics with a suggestion of a pulse by Karol Koszniec (electronics), Dominik Kowalczyk (laptop) and Jakub Mikolajczyk (modular synth) on the other.

CRESCENT

Sun

(Atavistic) Used 10-inch $7.00

“Sun” is a fantastic mix of fierce playing from the band and aggressive, intentionally dirty production. “*” sounds something like a drunk jazz band late at night with Matt Jones muttering low vocals in the distance. The extended “Unit System” closes the disc with a low, clattering drumbeat in the distance, guitar, bass and keyboard parts emerging from the production murk and a lengthy movie or interview segment unfolding throughout.

CRO MAGNON

Cro Magnon

(Bruit Direct Disques - BRD3) 7-inch $7.25 (Out-of-stock)

Teenage female duo Haley Fohr (of Destijl recording artists Circuit Des Yeux) and Katie Leming power their way through three gloriously fucked lo-fi cassette jams with squonking, mis-articulated garage guitar licks and drums as detonators. Classic destructo-punk. Not to be confused with the 1960s Cromagnon, but you knew that.

JASON CRUMER / ROXANN SPIKULA

Suppression In The Third

(Ecstatic Peace) Used 10-inch $10.00

Deep and considered brainmelt that moves from dark drone solace to sick shards of noise hell by ultra-weirdo troublemaker and one half of Relay For Death.

CRYSTAL FANTASY / HAIR POLICE

Crystal Fantasy / Hair Police

(Liquid Death / Hello Pussy) Used Split 10-inch $4.00

Tracks by the Milwaukee quartet are from another world, “one where Lisa Frank designs come to life, roads are built of rainbows and the sky is illuminated by every color across the spectrum,” according to Adam Strohm. “Modulated vocals [and] synthesized squiggles cross a field of minimalist fluorescent electronics as tasteful effects accompany the dialogue,” after which Hair Police seem “positively ugly,” with their “mismatched pieces and sharp edges, shuddering oscillations [that] overpower static squeals…, sounds drown[ing] under sounds, and human screams [getting] swallowed in the polluted mix…. The two groups certainly share a determination to explore the far reaches…, [with] Crystal Fantasy drift[ing] into cartoon clouds and Hair Police writhing underground.”

CULVER

Cherry Blossom Girls

(Turgid Animal - TA204) 7-inch $7.50

Two tracks of dense, thick, cloudy, foggy drone in tribute to fetishist Lee Stokoe’s beloved cherry blossom girls. With three inserts featuring Stokoe’s original artwork. 200 copies pressed on black vinyl.

CURED PINK / PENGUINS

Cured Pink /Penguins

(Vacant Valley - VV08) split 7-inch $20.00

Cured Pink’s effectively creepy side is a chain-rattling death march of single-chord electric guitar, mournfully strummed amid stormy ambiance and shouted vocals. Penguins’ militaristic drumming and formidable hedge wall of guitar are tough enough to withstand the start-stop chug of their track, along with menacing brass and shrieking. White vinyl. Austrialian import.

DANDI WIND / DEAD GODS

Dead Gods / Dandi Wind

(Rampage) split 7-inch $7.00

Dead Gods' “The Perfect Lie” is polished, new-wavish, angst-ridden and packed with New Order-esque bass lines; swaying melodies and detailed synth arrangements recall something Johnny Marr of The Smiths would whip out. Mope-y lyrics, a touch of glockenspiel and pizzicato strings, Phil Spector-style production, driving and danceable. Guest appearances by Jim Magas (Lake of Dracula), Bobby Conn and Monica Boo Boo, Josh (Majhonng). Dandi Wind are a Vancouver-based duo who consider their peers Glass Candy, Crystal Castles, or SSION. “Incubation” is a trippy blur of pounding, almost tribal music with astonishing and chaotic vocal arrangements, dark lyrics, intricate production, and throbbing lead synth lines. Edition of 300 copies.

JIM DANDY AND THE SUGAR BEATS

From Dust To Dust b/w Warm Up

(Dadjo) 7-inch (lathe cut) $30.00

“With absolutely no connection to the lead singer of country rockers Black Oak Arkansas or the LaVerne Baker R&B classic comes this mysterious single,” explains WFMU’s David Noades. Both songs of this early 70s obscurity from Saginaw, Michigan, have “a deliciously dubious home-made quality about them…. The A-side … uses the old Christian burial idiom as a moral look at life and death…. [A]wkward and shaky vocal delivery [is] not helped by the staccato rhythms of the verses and the over-use of the word dust … [while] the chorus … ends in a clumsy but obvious rip off of Billy Preston’s organ coda from ‘Let It Be’…. [L]udicrously overlabored drum fills and Phil Spector-esque harmony backing … add to the unintentional comic effect…. [A] truly bonkers fairground-style organ solo … is in complete contrast to the somber mood of the rest of the song. Drowned in reverb and tape delay, and with more bum notes than a colitis sufferer…. [The jaw-dropping dance number on the B-side is] a complete U-turn…, where the home made harmonium [competes] with an equally ham-fisted harmonica.” Canadian bootleg edition with screen-print replica labels. Edition of 10.

DARK BARGAIN / VOLTIGEURS

Voltigeurs / Dark Bargain

(Turgid Animal) split 7-inch $8.75

The alter ego of Skullflower (Matthew Bower and Samantha Davies) rips dark psychedelic noise. On the flip, Newcastle-based trio (Jamie Stewart of Wrest, Lucy Johnson of Rife and Smut, and Mike Simpson of Xazazz) offer seven minutes of thunderous rhythms and harsh, distortion-laden and feedback-drenched noise rock. Edition of 300.

DEAD BODY COLLECTION / THE RITA

SLC Engine Decima MAS b/w Amore, Morte, Amore

Limited to 1000 copies, released to coincide with Vain, Erudite and Stupid: Selected Works 1987-2005 2xCD.

DEADLY ORIFICE

DEVILLOCK / YELLOW SWANS

Yellow Swans / Devillock

(Modern Radio - MRRL034) split 7-inch $8.00

Yellow Swans start with a tone and delve into into a dense, unsettling wall of sound. Devillock's ambient piece shifts one note through a slow organic rumble.

DIATRIC PUDS & THE BLOBETTES

The Weird Watusi

(Beniffer Editions - BFF127) 7-inch $10.00 (Out-of-stock)

Californian braintrust spearheaded by Count Loachfillet, whose gaggle of undead minions retool the sternness of electronic music in his own cemetery sensibility, allowing it to cross-breed and co-mingle with a playful, haunted-house-sound-effects vibe. Musique concrète meets monster rock: the rutting of a decapitated cat, a cauldron of devoured souls with fingernail xylophones, a witch with a speech impediment, sodden graveyard memories of a mangled airplane casualty who died in vain. Second edition of 50 in gatefold jacket, out of print since 2010.

DRUNK ELK

Seneca's Last Breath

(Quemada) Used 7-inch $7.00

The vinyl debut from these residents of Hobart, Tasmania (also known as the Australia of Australia), who channel earnestness, naivety and lyrical inspiration from the weirdest loner folk. They're obsessed with Joy Division, and because of an inescapable Xpressway filter, sound less Manchester and more like a Jefferies brother Peter and Graeme would rather people not find out about, and so have forced him to live in the attic deprived of voice lessons, friends and food. So you gotcher heavily melodic ode to the Roman stoic philosopher on one side, and your quieter, more seductive affair on the flip, a pledge of devotion to another man's wife. Why not?

DRY MOUTH

Gone Troppo

(Virrash) 7-inch $10.50 (Out-of-stock)

Cooper Bowman (Flat Fix) and Sean McMorrow work at a slow, narcoleptic pace with a freedom recalling the blazed chain of visual associations elicited by staring at a wall after a casual afternoon bong. Quite bent.

THE EASY GOINGS

Cigarettes

(Nuf Sed - NSFPOS09) 7-inch $7.00 (Out-of-stock)

This pre-Zip Code Rapists quintet (Stephan Hanson on keyboards, Gary Strasburg on electric guitar, and Scott Brizel on drums, plus Messrs Turkington and Singer) brings their beautiful magic to songs by the Beach Boys, Springsteen, and Black Flag. Much more in line with the obnoxious EZ-listening terror of ZCR than the comparatively tame first Easy Goings single, this record smoothly passes the torch to that group and its vicious dismantling of “hits” both real and alternate-universe.

PIERRE ELITAIRE

De Schepper

(Ultra Eczema - UE84) 7-inch $15.00 (Out-of-stock)

The oldest DJ in Antwerp turns 50 this year.

The flip is a version of Nicky Trackx's "Acid in the House." Jacket is a stencil-print of '80s-era Elitaire. Edition of 200 copies.

SMOKEY EMERY

Quartz

(Indian Queen - IQR002) 7-inch $9.50

Sonorities from the purgatorial regions, where distorted and catchy tape loops take you from the inter-planes of the mind to the carnival -- at once sinister and endearing beneath the changing light of sooty reverb and effectual tape hiss. Deceptive washes of underwater tones fall in and out of tune; when you think you’ve been listening to a stable phrase for thirty seconds, buried in the glowing embers and vapor yawns an organ concerto or an analogue gear malfunction. Edition of 300

TODD W. EMMERT

MARTÍN ESCALANTE / MATT MOTTEL

Chop Party

(Sploosh - SPLOOSH13) 7-inch $8.00

One half of Talibam! turns in some top quality rust belt synthesizer prowl in collaboration with Peru’s high priest of air-bending. “The frayed edges of jazz,” as one Bandcamp follower put it. Which must be code for “hornets the size of hippos.”

Expo 70 / I Am Seamonster

(Small Doses - dose32) split 7-inch $8.00 (Out-of-stock)

FERRAN FAGES

Pèl Nord

(Bocian - BC06) 7-inch $10.00

Improvisor, composer, former member of IBA col.lectiu d'improvisació, current collaborator with Alfredo Costa Monteiro in the Cremaster duo, Fages launches full bore into a piercing, whining squall conjured from manipulated AM radios. The monolithic yet prismatic "Pèl" needles its way into the ears before splaying in a layered slab of splintering harshness, while the rounder, more hollow "Nord" cuts a similar, slightly more negotiable path.

FAILING LIGHTS

True Form

(BloodLust! - B!094) 7-inch $8.25 (Out-of-stock)

The dark, distorted, droned-out organ playing of Mike Connely (Wolf Eyes, Hair Police) illustrates the collision between the contrasting styles of sound generated by the Lexington, Kentucky, and Detroit-area scenes.

FECALOVE

Dead Weight b/w When

(BloodLust! - B!148) 7-inch $10.50

FEELING OF LOVE

Hand Clap Girl

(Rococo) 7-inch $5.25 (Out-of-stock)

A one-man band (since 2003) who sings, plays guitar, kick drum, drum machine and keyboard (with his foot). He’s French and is, of course, here to croon beautiful songs of love with shit and blood on his hands. One Note + One Rhythm + One Word = One Song. Teenage punk frustration. No girl, alcohol, free porn sites, white chocolate. Semen runs in his veins. Red vinyl, limited to 300 copies (as some sort of tribute to Michael Jordan and/or Kurt Cobain that only the French understand).

FIELD BOSS / HEY COLLOSUS

Hey Collosus / Field Boss

(At War With False Noise - ATWAR068) split 7-inch $12.00 (Out-of-stock)

Hey Collosus batters into submission a slo-mo cover of Andre Williams's "Jailbait" with their trademark downbeat dirge.

FOVEA HEX / ANDREW LILES

Gone Every Evening

(Die Stadt - DS106) 7-inch $20.00 (Out-of-stock)

Two strange songs — collaborative pieces with Fabrizio Palumbo, Clodagh Simonds, Laura Sheeran, and Michael Begg — delightful and faintly unsettling. Gatefold cover with printed inner sleeve designed by Liles.

ROBIN FOX

More Impossible Futures

(Bocian - BC07) 7-inch $10.00

Building upon A Handful of Automation (Editions Mego 2010), the two shimmering EMS VCS 3 diamonds of More Impossible Futures are succinct electronic statements; one teases a jittering melody out of a flickering environment, while the other is decidedly abyss-bound. Based in Melbourne, Australia, for whom he is building a giant outdoor Theremin, Fox shoots lasers onto clouds (good work if you can get it), and regularly experiments with Anthony Pateras, oscilloscopes, Nyquist Variations and Australian dance companies.

RICHARD FRANCIS / ANTHONY GUERRA / MATTIN / JOEL STERN

Richard Francis / Anthony Guerra / Mattin / Joel Stern

RICHARD FRANCIS

Waste Away / Nun’s Murmur

(CMR - 29) 7-inch (lathe cut) $12.00

"Using field recordings, modular synth, computer, looper and edirol recorder," explains our friend at Volcanic Tongue, the man they used to call Eso Steel "conjures huge, phantom, barely populated soundworlds that are compulsive in the kind of entropic gravity that they generate, situating low drones and what sounds like distant airplane noise in fields of static, shortwave tone and that classic dying amplifier / overheating electricity appeal of the best of the post Xpressway/Corpus Hermeticum drone artists."

FRANKLIN'S MINT

Spider Babies b/w Nothing Without Love

(La Brea - LBX07) 7-inch $6.75 (Out-of-stock)

The solo project of Phil Franklin (Secret Chiefs 3, Caroliner, Sun Burned Hand of the Man’s “resident surrealist”) gives a clear narrative of damaged optimism, amplified acoustic guitar and percussion. The A-side is a technicolor nightmare about a paranoid man who has spider eggs hatch his head, while the B-side offers the confessions of a soul plagued by regret. Silkscreened cover art by Christine Shields. Edition of 300.

FRASER & DEBOLT

Flight Of The Light Air Force

(Roaratorio - ROAR44) 7-inch $7.75 (Out-of-stock)

The majestic title track — an outtake from their second Columbia LP With Pleasure, left off for reasons of space (it clocks in at eight minutes) — could’ve been a highlight of this outsider-folk duo’s career. On the flip side are two cuts recorded live at a February 1970 concert in upstate New York with violinist Ian Guenther: their signature song “Dance Hall Girls” and a rollicking version of the Stones’ “You Can’t Always Get What You Want.” Includes digital download.

FRIENDSHIP / JENNIFER WOLSKI

Jennifer Wolski / Friendship

(Shaolin Temple) Used Split 7-inch $3.00

Midwest grindcore. Screen-printed tin foil cover with natural distress and wrinkles.

FUCKIN' FLYIN' A-HEADS

Swiss Cheese Back b/w Watching TV

(Destijl - IND083) 7-inch $7.00 (Out-of-stock)

Reissue by a legendary Hawaiian band from 1979/1980 that provides one of the more exciting links between typified conceptions of punk and noise. If “Swiss Cheese Back” is the final aggregate, regimented elements of deconstructed hardcore (displayed by Harry Pussy via the Magic Band), “Watching TV” is the excess of Experience-inspired freedom that recklessly abandons anything that even vaguely resembles form. A recording that is so radically mixed, one might wonder if they just fucked up, or were working with a broken machine. Completely astounding, and, according to the December 1980 issue of Damage Magazine, “not recommended for anyone with high blood pressure.”

GASTRIC FEMALE REFLEX

Plays The Music of Alan Antfarm

(Lips Infection - LIP05) 7-inch $10.00

Hup, Bup, and Bup Zukerman take a hurl at two of this Riverside mid-'90s alt rock combo's power ballads, "Raw Puppy Pant Lick Show" and "Don't Moan When Behind The Chocolate Apparatus." Get it for the silkscreened jacket, keep it for the mental instability.

CARLOS GIFFONI

Absence of Essence

(Arbor - ARBOR99) 2x7-inch $10.00

Heavy synthesizer work reminiscent of the crushing mass of early industrial music, Absence of Essence consumes the air around it with heavy vibrations and total deprivation. Four tracks rip holes through the sonic barriers, loud and powerful with entrancing subtleties and discreet builds. The nature of the seven-inch format yields succinct and unwavering compositions. One platter is white vinyl, the other one's black. Edition of 400.

GLANDS OF EXTERNAL SECRETION

Backlit Colander With Holes Shaped Like Numbers / Bok Choy Festival

(I Dischi Del Barone - IDDB017) 7-inch $10.00

Two six-minute montages of reversed mitosis episodes, in which scaly pods, ruptured eggs, and clumps of partially digested hair smush through one another and glom together in unstable strains of Glass-spanktified dad-noise. “Backlit Colander With Holes Shaped Like Numbers” crawls with bacteria from munched electronics, murmurs of a chimney-entrapped Frampton (plus camel, but that should go without saying), tape yoont teetering on the lip of a magnetic abyss, and piercing splats from tiny automatic paintball guns. “High” and “lonesome” are the operative descriptors of “Bok Choy Festival”: Barbara Manning’s guitar loops backfire and self-annihilate in private spritz-overdose orgies; avian-constructed effigies of Annie Hayworth curdle; narration on the topic of body dysmorphia is provided courtesy of thrift store cassettes and a Sister Rosetta Thorpe quotation. Cover artwork by Karen Constance. With insert. Edition of 200.

GNUOY ETAN

The Bear Family

(Hanson) Used 5-inch (lathe cut) $50.00

Single-sided, cut into a compact disc. Hand-assembled, in paper folder. All sounds by Nate Young Of Wolf Eyes. Edition of 20

GO GENRE EVERYTHING

Humans & Luxury

(Spanish Magic) 7-inch $7.00

From the badlands of Tasmania, through Melbourne share-house doors, and into your hands, Go Genre Everything are equal parts Crass, Tears For Fears and Luigi Russolo. Two tracks from Eternal Youth Carefree Cleanness (Munchiegohilarious 2009), one from Megalomania, and one previously unreleased. Go Genre Everything emerged in 1974 as a screaming avant life epic orchestra called Abominibbleable with contemporaries such as Sun Ratsu and Brian Enema. Something happened in 1988 – not sure what exactly, but adjustments to psychic conditioning were involved, and it occurred in a place called Kyzyl City. This set the stage, apparently, for Dieter von Broumler to initiate first contact with Zach Von Bamburger (guitar, vocals) and Jen Tait (drums, keyboards, vocals) and form Go Genre Everything, a self-described “complex sonic experiment voicing myriad environments, traversing and exploring function and situation, form, void and meaning. Designed within a utilitarian sensorial intertalk mode, we are a multidimensional fluidic high energy organic network with mechanical interfacing devices, tenderly electrocuting neurons within human brains.” They perform music, in other words. Which, according to cyclicdefrost.com, exists “in a zone of their own no-wave-meets-drone-psych-noise making.”

When This You See Remember Me

(Dark Beloved Cloud) Used 7-inch $3.00

Five tracks from 1993, including “Jackalope Hunting” which Trouser Press admires for its “telescop[ing of] bits of African high-life and Cage-ian air manipulation into fragments of utter enchantment.”

Betty b/w Betti_Corr

(Meeuw Muzak - MM046) split 7-inch $10.15 (Out-of-stock)

IL GRANDE SILENZIO

Dry Lake b/w Empty Kettle

(Meeuw Muzak - MM044) 7-inch $9.00 (Out-of-stock)

Raw minimal banjo by Atsuo Ogawa and self-built electronics by Minoru Sato. “There’s a lot of space to these slow pieces,” observes Pete Um, “An interesting marriage of form and content [where] the recording method … highlight[s] the contrast between the brash and folksy tones of the banjo…, played in simple, clear, isolated notes, and the mysterious tinkle and scrape [of the electronics] that the ear strains to hear....”

HAARE

Death Happening

(Turgid Animal) 7-inch $7.50

Expertly done psychedelic harsh noise from Finland. "Surprisingly chaotic and [discordant]," say our colleagues at Freak Animal.

Edition of 500

HAND OF DUST

Walk In White

(Avant! - AV!031) 7-inch $9.75 (Out-of-stock)

Though this Copenhagen trio belongs to the Posh Isolation brood, their personal variation of dark rock has roots in folk, with a lot of focus on songwriting and lyrics. Originally formed in order to play the acoustic songs of singer Bo Høyer Hansen in an electric setting, they own the sweet spot shared by electric neo-folk, Dead Moon-ishness, and a notable Gun Club vibe. Check out the B-side here: https://soundcloud.com/avant/hand-of-dust-a-sight-for-the-living

HARPOON / LOCRIAN

Ancestral Brutalism / To The Tall Trees

(He Who Corrupts - HWC023) split 7-inch $9.75

Two of Chicago’s more notable loudness enterprises deliver one song each on green marble vinyl: "Ancestral Brutalism" by Locrian (Andrew Sherer of Velnias guests) and "To The Tall Trees" by Harpoon (their first release with bass player DJ Barraca). Lulled Into A Boiling Rage describes Locrian, "Droning and forbidding sounds carried on air at top volume. Time seem[s] to slow down, waiting for the band to lurch toward their next choad rattling note. A perfect soundtrack for a desolate piece of arctic winter." About Harpoon, Cerebral Metalhead says they occupy a "middle ground between Phobia's d-beat leaning grind and Pig Destroyer's more metallic assault" (though, to be fair, they also said "When did A-Ha start playing grindcore?" so, you know, caveat emptor, motherfucker). Bonus material is included via enclosed digital card. With full-color double-sided insert, letter pressed cover.

HARRY MERRY

Australian Sun

(Meeuw Muzak - MM)42) 7-inch $5.75 (Out-of-stock)

A barrel organ of Benelux origin called De Pansfluiter plays an old Merry tune, reading mechanically from a score of holes cut into a special orgelboek. Reminscent of another piece of holy foolery that contrasts the modern world with antiquity, The Other Side of Tiny Tim. The B-side is an instrumental version, showcasing the tune’s joyous sadness.

JOWE HEAD

Swell Maps 1972-1980

(Sounds On Paper) Hardcover book + 7-inch $30.00

Formed in band-member and co-founder Jowe Head’s home town of Solihull, England in 1972, the group featured the late Nikki Sudden and Nikki’s brother, the late Epic Soundtracks, along with Phones Sportsman, John Cockrill, and Richard Earl. In this 152-page biography of the band, Heads takes us to each members’ formative years and reveals what made them experiment with challenging music and eventually come together to form Swell Maps. Through his own recollections and utilizing interviews with former members, he explores the early days of the band, and details stories that bring the reader into the inner workings of the band as they traveled through the late ’70s cultural scene in Europe. The last section of the book updates the whereabouts of all the key players. The book includes dozens of full-color images of band memorabilia from the author's personal collection, including photos, posters, flyers, artwork, original lyrics, and more. Six exclusive, never-before-released tracks are on the seven-inch, culled from the archives. Edition of 1000

MICHEL HENRITZI / JUNKO

Fear Of Music / Berlin, With Love

(l’Esprit de l’Escalier - LELE01) 7-inch $15.00

The stamina-defying screamer of Japanese noise and longtime vocalist for Hijo Kaidan joins wrecker of civilization and one-third of The Dustbreeders for two sides of very pleasant unpleasantness. Henritzi’s improvised guitar-playing is the real surprise here, with its curiously cinema-conscious restraint, hovering around the perplexing intersection of an imaginary Giallo scored by Morricone and the calm brunch entertainment at a grim eastern European café. Quite a deviation from the “glorious, unholy racket” of his vinyl-noise trio. Junko, meanwhile, colors the foreground with her trademark bird-getting-strangled-by-a-dentist-on-a-chalkboard vocals (say whatever you want, comedian, she’s heard it all before) but here shrieks with almost zero adornment, to the point where she achieves an unusual variation on repetitive minimalism. The sublime tension between the two players forms a rarely heard, abject desperation that seems impossible to satisfy. Edition of 100.

MICHEL HENRITZI / JUNKO

Moi Non Plus / Shibari

(AnarchoFreaks) 7-inch $15.00

Guitar and voice, recorded during the same sessions as Fear Of Music / Berlin, With Love. Screen-printed cover. Red vinyl. Edition of 200. TEDIUM HOUSE BEST OF 2013

TOM HERMAN / HOME & GARDEN

Flim Flam b/w From Blake

(Jupiterian) split 7-inch $5.75 (Out-of-stock)

As the essential Pere Ubu rhythm section from the 1970s through the early 1990s, Scott Krauss and Tony Maimone collaborated during Ubu’s early 1980s hiatus as Home and Garden, where they blazed their own trail of avant-rock — not without some assistance from Cleveland’s art-rock crème de la crème. “Flim Flam” was originally written by Krauss and Jim Jones (during the sessions that yielded Pere Ubu songs “Come Home,” “Kathleen” “Last Will and Testament,” and “Fedora Satellite II”) although it was never submitted to Ubu for consideration. Its appearance here, with Jones on guitars and keyboards, and Keith Kornajcik handling the vocals and lyrics, is the first. On the flip, “From Blake” showcases the guitar, bass, and sax talents of founding Pere Ubu guitarist Tom Herman (who also led the avant-rock power trio Tripod Jimmie with Len Bove). Assembled around Linda Herman’s performance of a poem by William Blake, the song is a tour de force. Includes free download code.

HEROIN IN TAHITI

Peplum b/w Alo

(Yerevan Tapes - YER007) 7-inch $9.75 (Out-of-stock)

An apocalyptic take on an imaginary Morricone soundtrack — Italian occult psychedelia filled with twangy guitars, doomsday synths, and mellotron, backed with a giallo-esque clash between Bruno Nicolai and Demdike Stare, originally conceived for the In Every Dream Home A Heartache exhibition by Phil Collins (no relation).

HNY

Sacred Fire b/w Ghost

(Spleencoffin - SP40) 7-inch $7.50 (Out-of-stock)

Minimal, jagged guitar chords, saturated percussion, and the distinct voice of Heather Nicole Young (ex-Social Junk) on the A Side — all blanketed in controlled feedback sweeps and a generous supply of delay. On the flip, a more environmental piece with paired voices (one effected, one bone dry), field-like synth sounds, and a faint low-end pulse riding just below the surface. Edition of 300.

Musique Concrète Realizations Of Two Poems By Robert Creeley

(Beniffer Editions) 7-inch $11.80 (Out-of-stock)

Creeley readings of “The Pattern” and “Dimensions” (both dense with complicated meanings often running together, and difficult to set musically) taken in new directions by this American expat living in Canada who, subsequent to these 1968 recordings, would release material via the Opus One, Sound Of Pig, and Albany labels. The A-side is manipulated with speed change, splicing, direction change, and multitracking, while on the flip, Creeley’s narration occurs over and through the dense texture, his voice blending into a mangled and distorted free improvisation on cello and percussion. Screen-printed gatefold jacket. White vinyl. Edition of 300

HUNTING LODGE

Shadows Out of Time 1982-1983

(Vinyl on Demand - VOD78) 3xLP + 7-inch $90.00 (Out-of-stock)

The final LP contains live material from At The Harrington Ballroom cassette (S/M Operations 1982), S/M Operations Live cassette (S/M Operations 1983), and the previously unreleased (not counting boots) Live At The Lodge, pressed direct from the original masters, representing the two-piece early noise-unit of Hunting Lodge in harrowing live intensity. On the seven-inch are a studio version of John Wright's “Stellazine Shuffle” and “Learn to Will II,” previously released on Beast 666 cassette compilation (Nekrophile Rekords 1983). Artwork by Thomas Nordstrom, previously seen on early Hunting Lodge stationery. Liner notes by Jeff "Central" Chenault, recording details, never-before-seen live photos of the band.

Hype Williams is an eighteen-year "relay project" conceived in 2005 by husband and wife motivational speakers Father Ronnie Krayola and Denna Frances Glass. Every three years it gets passed on to someone else to "look after." Recordings from the first three years were stuffed into a pinata and will be released at the conclusion of the project. In May 2008 it was passed on to a heckler called Roy Bundy (Paradise Sisters) who, along with Karen Glass and Bahaama Moutchaka (Arch M) have released numerous CDRs through the Ceylan Projects gallery in London. They have a large rotating cast of deviants they play with live under the moniker Bo Khat Eternal Troof Family Band.

CHRIS IMLER

Vorwärts b/w Tanzen

(Meeuw Muzak - 038) 7-inch $7.00 (Out-of-stock)

Two ear-jingling, primeval drumtasms: a jerry-rigged version of the Chris Montez classic backed with an original “sci-fi romanticist socialist anthem.” Kinetic energy, a chugging beat, and waves of delayed gratification. Classic trembling Teutonic disco-punk, in other words. Imler, infamously involved in Spankings and Golden Showers (the groups, not the deviant sexual practices) has also worked with Puppet Mastaz, Peaches, Namosh, Electronicat, Patric Catani (as the Driver&Driver duo), Soffy O, Die Türen and Stereo Total. Edition of 450.

INFINITE LIGHT / VIBRACATHEDRAL ORCHESTRA

Infinite Light / Vibracathedral Orchestra

(Krayon Recordings - KR013) split 7-inch $8.25

VCO drops straight into a heads-down, fully tranced narco-dust trail, with guitar-born fireflies leading the way through a never-changing backdrop heat haze of low-lying smoke-mist and earth-veined throb. Tweets and rattlesnake percussion join mystic keyboard spirits blowing in a weightless drift. The first cut from Infinite Light is a section lifted from a show featuring Barry Dean on guitar, Mick Flower on guitar and organ and Pete Nolan jamming the traps, and its a full, free-rock, psych-out captured through a heavy veil of no-fi smog. Part two wraps solo harmonic guitar vignettes around a falsetto vocal cadence fluctuating at the point of saturation.

INSPECTOR 22

Rainy Day Saints

(Emmert) 7-inch $7.00

A magnificent self-released 7-inch by one of the South's most stunning visionaries, Todd Wesley Emmert, whose motto is "Misinterpreting the Scriptures Since 1973." Recorded during a thunderstorm in June 2002, Inspector 22 takes a rightful seat at the table with Jandek, Daniel Johnston and Lisa Suckdog. In hand-colored sleeves, with two inserts, all adorned with Emmert's eyeball-teasing artwork.

JAYE JAYLE

Pull Me Back b/w Evil Windows

(Sophomore Lounge - SL057) 7-inch $8.25 (Out-of-stock)

On an old, beat-up parlor guitar that can barely hold a tune, Evan Patterson (Bad Secrets, Young Widows) chews into the fruits of loner-psych and stripped-down drunken desert blues. Cloudy synthetic atmospheres, minimal percussion and improvised electronics courtesy of members of Sapat, Black Cross. Edition of 300.

JERUSALEM AND THE STARBASKETS

Room 8 b/w Swingin' Vine

(Destijl - IND078) 7-inch $6.50 (Out-of-stock)

This duo (sometimes augmented) plays unfashionable, unpretentious and completely devastating pop music, though there is scant evidence -- a handful of impossibly rare cassettes and a split LP with Skarkraou Radio, and The Howling LP (Radio Fonico). With a vibe that sounds like the third Velvet Underground LP played by The Terminals, a righteous guitar tone any stoner rock Chud would envy, and catchy, infectious tunes (with a recent emphasis on country melodies) that will stay in your head for weeks.

JETT HOTCOMB AND THE TALENTED HAIRDOS

Give Us This Day Our Swingin' Bread

(Butte County Free Music Society - 31) 7-inch (one-sided) $8.00

Homemade Christian lounge music from the late ’70s, previously available as a free cassette (self-released via the Jett 3:16 label) for guests at a now-defunct rural motel in Butte County.

(Alt.Vinyl - AV062) 7-inch $12.00 (Out-of-stock)

Four tunes based on personal field recordings made across Africa and South-East Asia, arranged for solo electric guitar — a preview of an upcoming collaborative album between Joynes and Dead Rat Orchestra, which features ensemble arrangements of these pieces alongside other material also sourced from field recordings. Edition of 250

JUNIOR MAKHNO

Theatre of the Macabre

(Bruit Direct Disques - BRD1) 7-inch $7.25 (Out-of-stock)

A precarious concept album for the tragic era of the working poor that generated some priceless flailing among the chattering class, but Detailed Twang seem to have the levelest head when they describe it as “Strange and pleasingly ill-fit mash of distorted horror rap, electronic tweedling, screams, monsters sound, and manipulations of all sorts. Mostly instrumental, and heavy in every sense of the word.” Six tracks over and done with in less than ten minutes. For crying bones and bludgeoned hopes.

G.X. JUPITTER-LARSEN / MUENNICH

Die Arbeiter von Wien

(Fragment Factory - FRAG19) 7-inch $13.50 (Out-of-stock)

The third part in Jupitter-Larsen's series of old trade union / battle songs follows Internationale (Banned Production 2010) and Solidarity CD (Banned Production 2010). Written by the Viennese lyricist and essayist Fritz Brügel, presumably in the late 1920s, this piece deals with the events during the so-called "July Revolt" in the capital of Austria on July 15, 1927, caused by a court verdict which acquitted three members of the right-wing Frontkämpfervereinigung Deutsch-Österreichs (the same persons were responsible for the death of a man and an eight-year-old the same year). The palace of justice went up in flames, at least eighty demonstrators were shot dead by the police, more than six-hundred people were injured. The stage was set for a fascist takeover in Austria. Jupitter-Larsen's two renditions are crude, P.E.-ish, vocal-heavy. One side with the original German lyrics, one side with the lyrics translated into English. Double-sided full-color sleeve, lyrics included. Edition of 250.

Empty Holes, Empty Homes

(Blossoming Noise) Paperback book + Flexi $21.00 (Out-of-stock)

SILVIA KASTEL

Take It

(Ultramarine - UM015) 7-inch $15.00

Triple Silvia on voice, mutant beats, synths, tape echo, working the early Cabaret Voltaire, Clock DVA and dub influences, delivering some much-needed anguish, agony, and paranoia against today's fun-at-all-costs shit. Silkscreened jacket. Edition of 100.

THE KEGGS

To Find Out b/w Girl

(Priority Male - 24) 7-inch $8.00 (Out-of-stock)

KITO MIZUKUMI ROUBER

Midori Mushi San Connichiwa

(Siltbreeze - sb134) 7-inch $7.00

Five tracks informed by old-school Japanese genre snuffers such as Tako and Gunjogacrayon, combining the jabbering, pan-humanoid out-there-ness of the former with the zoned, riffed, mutant indifference of the latter. Tacked on to this toxic, dripping blotter of sound is an eerie cover snippet stabbing the heart of every campfire singalong and folksy hootenanny through time immemorial. Edition of 286.

TOMASZ KRAKOWIAK

A/P

(Bocian - BR03) 7-inch $10.00

Free-improv that penetrates the acoustic properties of individual percussion instruments. Krakowiak departs from the hi-fi aesthetics of his peers (e.g. Christian Wolfarth, Jon Mueller or Jason Kahn) and goes after the sound of a single cymbal recorded with an old cassette tape; imperfections and the characteristic analog sound (objects, rotation, overtones, layers) are Krakowiak's goal, comparable to Harry Bertoia's sculptures, or the textures of Morphogenesis.

KRUBE

Krube

(I Dischi Del Barone - IDDB006) 7-inch $10.00 (Out-of-stock)

A step even further into oblivion by this Berlin artist, exploring unknown territories via daunting everyday life recordings and electronic slices of nothing and everything. Edition of 200.

Mu Ji Ge

([ no label ] - 007-01) 7-inch $12.00 (Out-of-stock)

A song by Korean psychedelic rock legends Sanullim covered by Tori Kudo of Maher Shalal Hash Baz, Chie Ozeki (Maher Shalal Hash Baz), Tsukasa Takahashi (Che Shizu, Maher Shalal Hash Baz) and Mikiko Suzuki, in solidarity with and support for Japan’s Korean community, currently facing growing hostility from the Japanese right-wing. “Sanullim was like an unexpected flower of the frontier district that suddenly shifted from GS to progressive rock,” remembers Kudo upon hearing a cassette of the group back in 1980. “Wouldn’t it be shocking if Jackie Yoshikawa & His Blue Comets were performing Uriah Heep? I do not know any similar examples that equal them in East Asia other than Les Rallizes Dénudés.” Insert with a poem in Japanese and English by Junko Harada. Check it out here: http://youtu.be/EiNAbH-rCKY

LAKES

Crossed With Leaves

(Quemada) 7-inch $9.00 (Out-of-stock)

The bleak punk / dark folk solo outlet for Sean Bailey’s not-so-cheery take on the world picks up where Winter’s Blade (Inverted Crux) left off — with an extra level of heavy and gloom. Bailey’s been a constant presence in the Melbourne musical landscape for years, running his label and doing his bit for the sprawling hypnotic tinkering of Paeces, the stripped down punk of Wasted Truth, the goth punk of Tax, and the new wave shenanigans of The [Australian] Vivian Girls.

GRAHAM LAMBKIN

Abersayne b/w Attersaye

(Kye - KYE706) 7-inch $9.75 (Out-of-stock)

A perfectly serviceable love song backed with a rough-and-ready late-night lament. Lyric sheet. Edition of 500.

City / Clear

(I Dischi Del Barone - IDDB009) 7-inch $10.00 (Out-of-stock)

Two by Umberto Lenzi

(Saxon Gregory) 7-inch $5.00 (Out-of-stock)

(Quasi Pop - QPOPREC11) 7-inch $9.00 (Out-of-stock)

Quasipop's Monster series delivers strange takes on modern pop music where's "pop" means the weirdest form of entertaining. Sweets overloads, glucose hallucinations, and like that. Purple vinyl. Edition of 500.

LLOYD PACK

Know Your Lloyd Pack

(Siltbreeze - SB146) 7-inch $2.50

“Captain’s log, Stardate 10.3.12: The Lloyd Pack EP is finally realized. We had picked up a distress signal some weeks back, the call letters unclear, but seemingly emitted from a slow and hostile planet known only as URP. The data transcribed mentioned project (Lloyd Pack), title, (Know Your Lloyd Pack), participants (Russell Walker, Letha Rodman Melchior, Dan Melchior) and facilitator (Siltbreeze). Upon listening to contents, our forward team —eager but without much depth — quickly attempted a single comparison to former Siltbreeze inhabitants, The Shadow Ring regarding sound and style. However, Chief Science Officer Roland Woodbe dismissed this as naive and noted the possibility of an Excalbian conspiracy in such a hasty summation. Woodbe elaborated a deeper analogy, finding in his historical dissection hints to century-old former galactic explorers such as Collective Horizontal, 49 Americans, and No Half Measures (for example). When presented with the compositions of Lloyd Pack, I found CSO Woodbe’s comprehension to be most evolved. That said, Know Your Lloyd Pack occupies its own unique aural atmosphere, too, with drollery of the highest Anglo-Saxon order, and ambience as crisp as a Gloustershire perry. Overall, I find its essence most logical.” — Tiberius Surak, Starfleet Commander

LOOSE HEART

Paris 1976

(Danger Records - DR006) 7-inch $10.50 (Out-of-stock)

Three incredible, previously unreleased tracks from 1976 by The Most Violent French Punk Band Ever: Pierre Goddard of Strike Up and 1984 on guitar and vocals, Angel Face’s Pascal Regoli on bass, and drummer Hervé Zenouda of Angel Face, Strike Up, Stinky Toys.

Lustiges Tierquartett

(Danger Records - DR002) 7-inch $7.75

Legit reissue of scarce seven-inch by French DIY weirdos, originally released in 1981 on the Milk label. Snotty, stupid art punk.

MACHINE GUN TV

Cue

(Tochnit Aleph) Used 7-inch $4.00

First European release by Hidekazu Miyano and Jun Masumizu, whose four tracks for neon flickering, walls breaking, and ears bleeding are as catchy as a nervous breakdown. “Electric shock pop from the TV made out of colored fluorescent light Jell-O,” says Eye Yamatsuka, who oughta know. Edition of 800.

MACRONYMPHA

Sex and Death

(Hospital - HOS100) 7-inch $6.75 (Out-of-stock)

The ultimate dichotomy of thunder and scourge, fire and flood, iron and breast. Cock and bat... the hammering continues. Whoever dies with the most cumshots wins. Joe Roemer and Rodger Stella are joined here by Prurient’s Dominic Fernow. Classic transsexual art brut.

MAD NANNA

I Hit A Wall

(Quemada - QUE004) 7-inch $8.00 (Out-of-stock)

An anthem for the ages that lurches and stumbles, makes strides, waltzes and wobbles, backed with a track that charges through the muck and rides an early '90s Port Chalmers groove. Artwork by Anthony Riddell of Volvox.

MAD NANNA

If I Don't Sleep Tonight

(Wormwood Grasshopper - WG03) 7-inch $15.00

The second seven by this Melbourne group specializing in the mysteries of late night. Part of the new Stay Classy Australia scene. Edition of 100.

MAD NANNA

I’m Not Coming Here / My Two Kids

(Unwucht - UN10) 7-inch $10.00

A Jandek-conjuring slow-burner on one side side, while the flip rocks hard into the Velvet Underground chug zone. Recorded at the Kof Gallery in Flemington, Australia, and Loons Bar in Lyttelton, New Zealand, both tracks are versions of the songs on their seven-inch released by Soft Abuse. File next to Slimy Adenoid & The Pablums, Vomit Visions and Deutscher Abschaum, if that’s how you organize your stuff. With unique, rubberstamped postcard. Edition of 150

MAD NANNA

Mad Nanna

(Alberts Basement) 7-inch $15.00 (Out-of-stock)

Volcanic Tongue says, "Shadow Ring-style narcoleptic rock with a Shaggs-play-The Clean feel, mainlining extended pop jams into downer dirges." Siltblog says "It also kinda sounds like a Falling Spikes bootleg what had been caked w/mud & laquered onto vinyl." Edition of 200.

MADE IN MEXICO / MICROWAVES

Made in Mexico / Microwaves

(Rococo) split 7-inch $5.50

An action-packed 7-inch split between two hard-charging combos. Made In Mexico (ex-Arab On Radar) conjure their deadly mix of post-punk, no wave, prog and rock-inspired madness, while Microwaves blast tonality-impaired riffs against effected bass, clattering drums, and a dual vocal attack.

KRIS MAES / DENNIS TYFUS

Stevige Nacht b/w De Kerstdagen

(Meeuw Muzak - MM047) 7-inch $8.75 (Out-of-stock)

Ultra Eczema’s Dennis Tyfus on voice and cassettes, with Kris Maes on atmospheric slide guitar, editing and recording, applying their lo-fi sound poetry aesthetic to Christmas tunes.

MAGNETIC STRIPPER

Extended Play-R

(Suitcase - SUT03) 7-inch $7.75

Homemade Moog electronics and A/V experiments by interactive multimedia technology specialist James F. Ellis (ex-Absolute Ceiling). Four tracks that “meld the terrain between Minimal Man and Mark Stewart Group,” according to Discogs’ own PastySurprise. “There's a lot of sonic variety, including cool keyboard work and two locked grooves. If you miss the raw DIY electronic sound that characterized the 80s, this … will truly help bridge that gap.” With badge. Edition of 500.

MAN MADE HILL / PINK NOISE

Pink Noise / Man Made Hill

(Inyrdisk - IYD88) split 7-inch $9.00

Two prime movers each from Montréal’s most admirable modern punks and Toronto’s relentless electro-pop sorcerer. Mark Sauner, Graeme Langdon, and Tara Desmond’s magic cash’n’carry stunners shake with tight disjointedness, while Randy Gagne mystifies with filthy tapes, blown-out beatboxes in full body-slam mode, and some hot-stepping into soulful crooning glory. Risograph-printed covers. Edition of 500.

MARANTA

Pig Magic

(Pica Disk - PICA029) 7-inch + CD $15.00

Norwegian free noise duo with guests Maja Ratkje and Lasse Marhaug.

MEDROXY PROGESTERONE ACETATE / WARMTH

Warmth / Medroxy Progesterone Acetate

(Small Doses - dose9) split 7-inch $8.00 (Out-of-stock)

Both sides evolve slowly, mangle with sinewy maws of noise, and grip with hands of haunting ambience.

DAN MELCHIOR

For Letha

(Vin Du Selecte Qualitite) 7-inch $7.50 (Out-of-stock)

COMING SOON. Four tracks of instrumental, acoustic guitar.

MELT-BANANA / STILLUPPSTEYPA

Melt-Banana / Stilluppsteypa

(Something Weird) Used Split 10-inch $12.00 (Out-of-stock)

MEMPHIS LUXURE

Misery Patriot

(Superlux) Used 7-inch $3.00

1994 single by Matt Valentine, Pat Gubler, and Marc Wolf. “At any given moment,” says CMJ Music Journal, “half the band [tries] to hold the song together as the other half tries to break it apart completely. The whole thing falls into and out of meter repeatedly, chord sequences don’t always reach their destination, and … [it] shambles to a conclusion before it collapses.” On the flip, “Siren Howl / Holed” “slides aphasically from classic rock smoothness to fluid-spewing explosions.” Numbered edition of 500

MHFS

The Grey Lynn Homeless Set

(Emerald Cocoon - EC006) 7-inch $8.00 (Out-of-stock)

New Zealand-born Tokyo-based physicist Mark Sadgrove uses site-specific recordings, lyrical domesticity, systematically illogical recording choices, completely brutalized fragments of bone-dry pointillist acoustic guitar strung only with low Es, invented instruments, real-time Linux C-sound programming, obsessively repeated lyrical fragments, an almost Buddhist sense of sound-as-object, and seemingly random electronic beats jumping across the stereo spectrum to deliver two sub-sub-sub lo-fi acoustic folk songs saturated in haze. Volume four in Emerald Cocoon’s Alone Together series. Edition of 300.

MINITEL

Minitel

(Bruit Direct Disques - BRD2) 7-inch $7.25 (Out-of-stock)

“Ripe with schizophrenic angst,” our friends at Siltblog can't help but notice, “The A-side is clearly borne out of the avant soil once trod upon by Ilitch and DDAA, while the flip sounds like the band harvested an entire field of wormwood, distilling it into a noxious absinthe of Swans-like potency…. [B]lind carnage … follows…. Bruit-Direct is growin' real live monsters, no two ways about it.” Both guitarists also play in Sister Iodine.

MLEHST / MUTANT APE

Mlehst / Mutant Ape

(Turgid Animal - TA185) split 7-inch $11.35

Harsh building ambience from Mutant Ape, backed with Mlehst’s tonal experiment on the flip, really soothing.

MOFFARFARRAH

Thread Bare

(Alberts Basement) 7-inch $12.00

Solo vocal project by Melbourne's Christopher Hill of Paeces, Gauntlet, Gugg, Galactic Locksmith, and a million others. According to the lad's amazingly spelled MySpace page, "Moffarfarrah tranverses time pushing bending and proding time within the space of the mouth and pedals, precusion, organs, and amplifires, casting spores of posi-charged change in little and big omnipresent ways, gurgles, squeaks, moans, new languages, abstract opera, moduals of existence, tea swilling, friendly chat and chants."

MOLE HOUSE

Come Around

(All Gone) 7-inch $8.50

Mole House tarry in a minimal yet complex electric folk truism. Where few dare to tread, this trio moseys along some no-frills fifth dimension. If their true stories and lost chords receive the attention they demand, a captivating sense of juxtaposition comes full circle between lyrics and notes. File next to Un or Wreck Small Speakers getting ashed on by sluggish narco Gibson Brothers blues.

MOLE HOUSE

Hey Come My Way

(Quemada - QUE003) 7-inch $8.00 (Out-of-stock)

The debut of prime bummer pop by members of Mad Nanna and White Woods, with a bit more jangle and hook than is typical of the former, sloppier than the latter.

MOLOCH

Ein Dusterer Winter Kommt

(Legion Blotan) 7-inch $11.00

Two black metal tracks from prolific and experimental Ukrainians that utilize raw guitars, drum machine and keyboard mixed with menacing, depressive vocals. Edition of 250.

MONOPOLKA

Massive Ejaculation

(Beniffer Editions) 7-inch $16.50 (Out-of-stock)

Lacking sense and sobriety, St. Petersburg resident Phil Wolotkin is the most disoriented electronic composer on the planet. He counts among his skills, dizzy toilet bowl mornings, cut up editing to the millisecond, and mockery of Wolf Eyes. The 10 x 10, 18pp screenprinted book (folding out to 10 x 40, with a sewn pocket for the seven-inch) includes art by Jacob Horwood, Sekitani Norihiro, Dylan Nyoukis, Fatboobs, Jesjit Gill, Andrew Zukerman, Jeff Garcia, Zeesy Powers. Edition of 150.

MONS VENERIS / MORTE INCANDESCENTE

O Fim Do Teu Ser / Designios Do Fim

A truly evil and all-consuming split from two of the greatest hordes of Iberia. Edition of 250

MOON DUO

Catch As Catch Can

(Agitated) Used 7-inch $10.00

A blistering stew by Wooden Shjips’ Erik “Ripley” Johnson and Sanae Yamada backed with a cover of the Scientists’ classic speaker-burner “Set It On Fire.”

THURSTON MOORE / PRICK DECAY

Electricity Vs. Insects

(Chocolate Monk) Used Split 7-inch $8.00

After abandoning Moore’s suggested title Sunday Sport for this collaboration and opting instead for the more titillating, Vollmann-derived moniker, Nyoukis leads the trio through a score based on a simple grid-and-dice scam requiring Moore to record a randomly selected album from his collection for a set amount of time, to which more sherry-fueled voodoo would be applied upon arrival in the UK. On the flip-side, a more smoked-out octagonal score is used to replace as much content created by Prick Decay and Moore with sounds boosted from Glands Of External Secretion. Everyone involved agrees the record is a colossal pain-in-the-ass.

MOSQUITOES

s/t

(Mosquitoes - MOS001) 7-inch $10.00 (Out-of-stock)

Broken, atonal guitar scree, ultra-minimal half-jazz percussion and nervous bass probing. This trio from southeast England reduces songs to a few desolate lines. Diecut sleeve, fold-out insert, stamped labels. Edition of 100. TEDIUM HOUSE BEST OF 2016
Here’s two minutes for you: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M2VtsPW9Ek0

MUSLIMGAUZE

Coup d’Etat

(Vinyl on Demand) Used 10-inch $70.00

1996 reissue of all six tracks from Permis De Construire’s 1987 LP. Sealed

MUTANT APE

Live and Proud

(Turgid Animal - TA385) 7-inch $9.00

Pure junk noise abuse with little or no structure, although somewhat rhythmic in some places. The artwork is printed on two double sided thick glossy inserts and looks a treat. Limited edition, colored vinyl.

MUTANT APE / SEPPUKU

Mutant Ape / Seppuku

(Turgid Animal - TA197) split 7-inch $9.85

Cut-up junk abuse and pure smash all the way through Mutant Ape’s side. Scotland’s Seppuku deliver two tracks of doom-type metal. Death to false noise!

MUURA

Muura

(Alberts Basement) 7-inch $13.75

“Spurts of free percussion, alternately scratchy / ululating eternal drones, factory sounds à la Joe Jones, deformed, endlessly echoed vocals,” say our clearly stunned colleagues at Volcanic Tongue about the new seven-inch by Matt Earle (of Breakdance The Dawn, Craft Bandits, xNoBBQx). “The second side is more recognizably based around amp destruction and guitar abuse with waves of crude feedback interrupted by percussive guitar wrangling.” Individually handmade covers.

MÖSLANG WEHOWSKY

Einschlagskrater

(Meeuw Muzak - MM036) 7-inch $6.35 (Out-of-stock)

Another cryptic affair from this perennial Dutch label. For this mail collaboration, Norbert Möslang (Voice Crack) and Ralf Wehowsky (RLW) craft cracked everyday electronics and computer-manipulate deviations of same. One continuous piece sets falling sounds against a dark, drone-like backdrop; the other is more, ahem, musical, with more sounds of things falling and lots of processed variations. Sorta atmospheric, sorta noisy.

NAKED ON THE VAGUE

Chitty Chat b/w Goodbye Dear Cliche

(Sacred Bones - SBR020) 7-inch $6.00

Serious harsh downer vibes from this Australian male/female duo whose drum-synth-bass-and-vocal ferocity comes out sounding like a surprisingly danceable version of Whitehouse.

NANA B. / NIK’L’NIP

Rosewville b/w Phone Message

(Runt) Used 7-inch (one-sided) $2.00

Single-sided split seven originally release with Yakuza magazine. Indie rock and an answering machine message from grandmother.

NECROPOLIS

Song For The Working Man

(Columbus Discount) Used 7-inch $5.00

Dirty-sounding chaos by way of no wave and early art-punk. The A-side is a short but potent blast of hyperactive drumming, tweaked guitars, and near-random shouting -- the sound of angst and confusion, and the need to vent. The flip is an even noisier (but equally short) mess of screech and bile dragged down into the gutter by gut-wrenching distortion, esoteric noises, and a steady, plodding beat. Howling, yipping vocals make it clear the band is just as unsettled as their music. Hand-painted sleeve. Black vinyl. Edition of 400

NEEDLES

California

(Stomach Ache - SA61) 7-inch $10.00

Noise loops, tape cut-ups, appropriated thrift store muzak and demented boink interspersed with failed prank phone calls (anti-pranks, you might say). Hard to believe it was actually released. With Bren't Lewiis, Emil Beaulieau, Mike Minutoli, Garret Eaton, Genital P-Orange Juice.

NEUNTOTER DER PLAGE

Swine

(Nuhrst - NE77) 7-inch + cassette $35.00

Following Where The Dead Things Are (Nuhrst 2009) and Betwixt Descending Corridors (Self Abuse 2009), the crypt-dwelling alter ego of Ryan Oppermann circulates madness and blood through the coarse veins of the dying. “Swine” and “Defecated Bones,” two tracks that have remained hidden within troubled chambers for years, earn a helping hand from basement scum butcher Charlie Draheim on backing squelch-sound and glass treading. Most vile. Seven-inch box includes C35 cassette, two buttons, embroidered patch, sixteen-page book. Signed in silver by the artist. Edition of 260.

THE NEVER QUARTET

The Never Quartet

(I Dischi Del Barone) 7-inch $10.00

Static, haunting bliss by Michael Morley, employing the resonating qualities of e-bowed wooden acoustic guitars placed flat upon wooden furniture to reveal connections between time and space by activating the instruments and the other wooden objects within architectural structures. With insert. Edition 0f 200

NG KINDHEIT

Deaf Like Me

(Sound Org) Used 7-inch $4.00

“Rattles, interjections, borborygmes, whistles melting with wonder” marvels Perte & Fracas about the two tracks on the 1999 release by this “beautiful noise rock band” from Madison, Wisconsin. “Clean, dry, disjointed, personal cousin with US Maple, The Conformists, Big 'n and Jesus Lizard.” Silkscreened jacket.

Multi-color marble / splatter vinyl. Includes sticker.

NOCTURNAL EMISSIONS

Lest We Forget

(Vinyl on Demand - VOD56) 4xLP + 7-inch $100.00

Some of the earliest recordings by the group founded by bothers Nigel and Daniel Ayers with Caroline K in 1980, previously available on cassettes, as well as tracks recorded under their earlier name, The Pump. This document can be considered an audio sketchbook, filled with raw, unfinished works in progress and live performances by the trio (which mutated over the years and continued into the 21st century as Nigel Ayers’s solo project). It covers a wide range of musical styles by a group committed to radical experimentation in both form and content. The previously unreleased tracks from the early ’80s sound contemporary and fresh.

NONE

Just For The Hell Of It

([ no label ]) 7-inch (one-sided) $11.25 (Out-of-stock)

The first scene from the exploitation movie of the same name, directed by Herschell Gordon Lewis. Essentially a field recording of a group of teenagers destroying a room. No dialog, no background music. Sounds like a Haters show from 1968, pretty much.

NURSE WITH WOUND

Steel Dream March Of The Metal Men

(Clawfist - XPIG 12) 7-inch $20.00

"Steel Dream March of the Metal Men" is very very close to being the exact same song as the Miss Ticker remix of "Cold" from the Thunder Perfect Mind CD reissue and "Head Cold" from the Large Ladies With Cake In The Oven CD. Includes one-sided insert advertising the Clawfist singles club. From 1992. Edition of 1400

NYODENE D

Caged Dog / Common Criminal

(Phage - PT180) 7-inch $15.00 (Out-of-stock)

O YUKI CONJUGATE

Ambiguism (1983-87)

(Vinyl on Demand - VOD72) 4xLP + 7-inch + DVD $100.00

Between 1983 and 1987, this UK ambient group, formed in 1982 by Tim Horberry, Roger Horberry, Clare Elliott and Andrew Hulme, released two vinyl albums -- Scene in Mirage (A-Mission, 1984) and Into Dark Water (Final Image, 1987) -- and recorded numerous soundtracks, experimental projects and solo works.

ONEOHTRIX POINT NEVER / TOMUTONTTU

Tomutonttu / Oneohtrix Point Never

(Alter - ALT02) split 7-inch $8.00 (Out-of-stock)

Kemialliset Ystavat's Jan Anderzen and New Yorker Daniel Lopatin create a unique synthesis formed from a DIY approach to electronic music. With Tomutonttu's "Likaiset Pilvet," Anderzen emerges from his archives with something new after a heavy editing session. Fragmented electronics bring to mind a dozen Parmegiani records melting in unison. Rhythmic loops and other scattered sounds bear similarities to Eric Copeland's recent output. OPN's "Wayland Lincoln Border" continues Lopatin's synth work, recognized for deep layers of warm sound from trance-like melodies, evocative of motion, always evolving, constructing and deconstructing new worlds from sound. An apt counterpoint to Anderzen's chaos. Edition of 500.

ORCHID SPANGIAFORA

Tin WIndows

(Heart Of Glue - HOG001) 7-inch $4.00 (Out-of-stock)

Decontextualized public voices cut-up and repeated. Addictive, funny, oddly rhythmic, obsessive-compulsive. C'mon, your brain is at least twenty-five percent worms by now, surely you can tolerate a couple more.

(Speeding Across My Hemispheres) Used 7-inch $2.00

Ovalprocess

(Form & Function) Used LP + 7-inch $10.00 (Out-of-stock)

Jacket has creases; vinyl is near mint.

OVERHANG PARTY

Otherside of

(Pataphysique - DD89) 2xCD + 7-inch $40.00

Tokyo psych mainstays from 1990 to 2008 who, according to Dusted, “mixed the melodies with the mope to achieve a Paisley Underground sort of effect, albeit with virtuosic guitar freakouts by leader Rinji Fukuoka…. [M]ajestic melodies, challenging and progressive outlines, ripping leads, and proper song structures … recorded in Japan rattle the cages of … young, “tribal” drug-pee band[s]… with the skill and professional freakout-making abilities they all lack.” The seven-inch contains two songs from the band's 1999 US tour: “Le Few Follet” with its pop-psych layering and dueling lead guitars that are thick and confident and “Cut Up Us,” a collage of sounds from the entire tour and symphonic tapeloops.

PAGAN HERITAGE / UNJOY

Everytime You Hurt Me / Into The Happiness

Two depressing sides of obscure black metal from Netherlands and Finland, dominated by depression and suicidal isolation. Inner darkness crushed in the middle by unique atmospheres and singular visions. Edition of 200

(Meeuw Muzak - 041) split 7-inch $8.00 (Out-of-stock)

Man called Tapes tears up the mixing desk once again, hard on the heels of his Vernon Maytone winner. This is another triumph – careering, hot and mental. Pampidoo does Tiger. Rough!

Politico / Zytol Automation

(Destijl - IND095) 7-inch $8.00 (Out-of-stock)

Reissue of the lead single for their second album, Substrata (Match Box 1980). "Politico" is a rippin' new wave roller full of glam stomp, proggy arrangement and punky attitude. The synth-fuelled non-LP instrumental "Zytol Automation" features Terry Censky and Patrick Burke in an ebullient symphony of synths, drums and guitar.

ASHLEY PAUL

Hidden Face / Leave Mine

(Emerald Cocoon - EC004) 7-inch $8.00 (Out-of-stock)

At an intersection of late 20th-century art music by one half of Aster and of Paul and Maurey — modern composition, Euro free clatter and textural psychedelia — stilted song forms almost career off the very face of form on thin lines of carefully controlled reed-skree. Hand-crafted and warm, Paul’s tracks stitch together guitar, vocals, crotales and saxophone, and move in a constant, slow peristalsis, never quite coalescing, never quite drifting apart. Equal parts alien unease and folkish charm, these slowly tangled tones drift prismatic and high in the late afternoon light. Volume two in Emerald Cocoon’s Alone Together series. Edition of 300.

PC WORSHIP

Preach Under Cooked

(Sophomore Lounge - SL055) 7-inch $7.25 (Out-of-stock)

Justin Frye and his collective of art-diseased obsessives summon a somewhat lazier Bad Moon Rising-era industrial mushroom grunge, but can also relate to earlier Smog stuff (recorded in a haunted meat locker), to say nothing of the ease with which they lace free-form, sax-soured mutant folk with moans of Americana nightmare language and occasional flashes of Ayler-like enlightenment. The A-side wanders Fahey-ward with an Orcutt-damaged compass, while the flip is classic PC slacker punk. Hand-screened jackets. Edition of 300

PENS

Love Rules

(Destijl - IND081) 7-inch $5.25 (Out-of-stock)

Pens are three girls who take an old-school approach to a hum and riff and add their own who-gives-a-fuck, homemade panache.

PEOPLE SKILLS

Magnet Hill

(I Dischi Del Barone) 7-inch $10.00

Rather minimal and more based on guitar than previous efforts by Jesse Dewlow, such that “a murky sub-underground feel resembling South Island NZ pop played inside an armored car” line might be on point, but these two downer gems are rooted elsewhere. Plus, hey hey, locked grooves. With insert. Edition of 200

BENOÎT PIOULARD / SKIN LIES

Caverning b/w Meta-Quotations / Soiled, Discarded

(Impermanent) Used 7-inch $7.00

Two home-recorded tracks by Michigan expats / Pacific Northwest beach druids. Cloudy dream-conjuring and diaphanous songcraft on the Pioulard side, with Dustin Krcatovich’s unplanned voyage through the ether on the flip.

PLACENTA POPEYE / REVERSE MOUTH

Baby Blues Kids

(Tanzprocesz - TP4) split 7-inch $12.00 (Out-of-stock)

Byron Coley’s review somehow slipped past The Wire’s editorial gatekeepers and made it into print: “Fairly amazing free rock gloop collision by a French group with roots in Le Dernier Cri’s post-trauma sound (Placenta Popeye) and a Greek group (Reverse Mouth), who ... take things in a direction of stunning confusion. The best Greek things I’ve heard have always had a certain post-Rembetika blues orientation that explodes beyond average tongue worship. These guys are all that. And more.” Hand-numbered edition of 400

PLASTIX

Konsumier Mich

(Danger Records - DR007) 7-inch $10.50 (Out-of-stock)

All three tracks from the Die Tödliche Dosis compilation (Lustgewinn Schallplatten 1981) by this female fronted DIY punk band from Vienna. Insert includes lyrics and photos. Edition of 500

POSSET

Posset

(I Dischi Del Barone - IDDB011) 7-inch $10.00

Newcastle-based improvisor Joe Murray’s mix of vocal-jaxx loops, dry breath and child chatter. Relentless squelching from a wet mouth that’s been physically spliced into cranky tape. An exploration of sharp pencil tap and wickedly pinched spools. Edition of 200. TEDIUM HOUSE BEST OF 2016

PRIEST IN SHIT

Icon / Effigy

Layered metal abuse and thick harsh noise by Sean Matzus, Vance Osborne and Richard Ramirez, a strong follow-up to their recent Smell & Quim collaboration (Rough Skin 2010) and their appearance on the Filth compilation with Bizarre Uproar and Nicole 12 (Urashima 2010). Screenprinted covers, sticker, double-sided insert. Edition of 200.

PRIMITIVE CALCULATORS

Primitive Calculators

(Slow Drama) LP + 7-inch $90.00

Suburban filth that crawled out of the shitbox of Springvale, Australia, in the late seventies to inflict revenge upon the human race. After a couple of years of making ugly, nihilistic music comparable to Suicide meets Teenage Jesus, they burned out and destroyed themselves in a thrash of contempt.

PRURIENT

Stun Gun

PRURIENT

Victorian Photography

(Turgid Animal - TA248) 7-inch $7.50

Daydreams of the Victorian past via highly focused synth projections over a bed of crunched static, screamed vocals, children's song echoing from the bottom of a barrel. Creepy religious themes creeping in.

(Dais - DAIS028) 2x7-inch $10.00 (Out-of-stock)

Ambient power electronics recorded prior to the Bermuda Drain sessions.

PRURIENT

Wrapped In The Flame Of Illusion, Masked In The Clay Of Behavior

THE PUDDLE / ROBERT SCOTT / ADALITA SRSEN

That's What I Heard b/w Average Sensual Man

(Fishrider - FISH004) split 7-inch $12.75 (Out-of-stock)

New Zealand’s reigning ambassador of strum Robert Scott (The Clean, The Bats, Magick Heads) duets with Magic Dirt’s pop-rock powerhouse Adalita Srsen for the rustic “That’s What I Heard,” described by Still Single as charming and heartfelt, “nothing but sweet, full-sounding acoustic guitar, tambourine, and … two beautiful voices complementing one another.” On the flip, The Puddle’s slightly out-of-character “Average Sensual Man” delivers some underground cabaret psych-pop, Dunedin-style, with guests Al Starrett on accordion and viola, and vocalist Sharon Cunningham imbuing the track with a smokey jazz vibe. Both tracks are exclusive to this release.

PULSATING CYST

Horrible Signal

(Obfuscated - OR13) 7-inch $7.50 (Out-of-stock)

Three tracks of ground-to-a-pulp synth-and-electronic murmur, recorded live at The Lab, The Handbag Factory, and Kill Radio. Low frequencies and shrieking tube analog screams emitted from a stagnating swamp. Includes postcards, stickers. Glow-in-the-dark vinyl.

QUILT BOY

I Am Somebody

(Sophomore Lounge - SL080) 7-inch $8.25 (Out-of-stock)

Fucked up, vaped-out, borderline demonic cassette confessionals by Detroit’s greatest oddball, basement-dwelling, idiot-prog outfit (Chris Durham of All Gone, Roachclip, The Bibs), coming off like a cross between Robert Wyatt’s Matching Mole and Man Who Sold The World-era Bowie bent by early Trux slop and slackerisms. Edition of 250

HAL RAMMEL

Like Water Tightly Wound

(Crouton) Used 10-inch $10.00

This 2007 platter from Rammel’s series of solo Sound Palette studies captures the nuances of the intriguing instruments invented and built by the man himself — as curious for their sounds as they are as artifacts — finely crafted wood and metal devices one would expect to find in an obscure section of a museum. Melodic and buzzing with texture, these Sound Palette recordings represent an overview of artistic endeavor, ranging from electro-acoustic theory and practice, to sculpture and craftsmanship. With photographic print, liner notes, antique-themed 78 record package. Edition of 300

TOM RECCHION

Proscenium

(Elevator Bath) Used LP + 7-inch $20.00

This subtle and remarkably controlled collection of atmospheres mostly began life as music for filmmaker / puppeteer Janie Geiser’s play Invisible Glass, an adaptation of Poe’s William Wilson. Rich and surprising compositions that create a sound world intended to drench theater-goers from the moment they enter until their departure. 180-gram vinyl. Include download card. Sealed

TOM RECCHION

Where Were You On Christmas

(Meeuw Muzak - MM032) 7-inch $6.75 (Out-of-stock)

REDROT

Deviant

(BloodLust! - B!109) 7-inch $12.00 (Out-of-stock)

A dark slab of necro-nihilism by cult death-industrial powerhouse Ryan Oppermann (Fabrico Incubo, Klinikal Skum, Narcoleptic Ward, Neuntöter Der Plage, Post-Mortem Junkie, Xombie). "Deviant" straddles an uncomfortable line between death-industrial, power-electronics, crust/sludge and a totally aggressive form of minimal synth; "White Walls" brings to mind Leichenschrei-era S.P.K. with its unwholesome mental ward pathology.

REGOSPHERE / VOMIT ARSONIST

Vomit Arsonist / Regosphere

(Obfuscated) split 7-inch $7.00 (Out-of-stock)

Death industrial / power electronics by Andrew Grant on one side, blending a bleak atmosphere with ominous distortion, and giallo-inspired dark ambient by Andrew Quitter on the other. Edition of 300

STEFANIE RESSIN / ASMUS TIETCHENS

3 Wishes

(Meeuw Muzak - MM037) 7-inch $8.00 (Out-of-stock)

Ms. Ressin was one of several speakers on "Lipostudio... And So On," a "revoltingly beautiful" track by Matmos. Here she covers Klaus Nomi with appropriately pathetic operatic singing and electro-inspired rhythm from a sequencer. For the remix treatment on the flip, Mr. Tietchens reverses the vocals and feeds the rhythm through a gated reverb in the finest style of one-hit-wonder superfluous B-sides. Quite believable as an obscure 80s synth-pop record.

THE RITA

Dark Angled Eyebrow

(Amethyst Sunset) 7-inch $9.00

Ten minutes by the harsh noise master spread across two sides sourced from wood, nylon, and mic'd knives. Edition of 300

THE RITA

Shark Knifing

(Scratch And Sniff Entertainment - SNSE075) 7-inch $8.00 (Out-of-stock)

Lurching, ripping, and tearing. Relentless and sharp. Thrashing about in the blood water, coming back for the torso. There are sharks and then there are knives. How about sharks getting their throats slit by humans with knives? Think about that. These two sides present a concise and brutal attack by the master Sam McKinlay, compelled by the short format to pack each track with nothing but highlights typically spread out over longer form The Rita recordings. Hits hard, hits fast. Includes twelve-page booklet adorned with not-nice artwork culled from McKinlay's personal collection and drawings inked by the man himself, a sticker, and a double-sided postcard.

THE RITA

Ritual Finnish black metal that should need no introduction, but just in case: Sargeist features members of Horna and Behexen, both are long-term Finnish black metal bands known for profound live performances of magic.

DIE SCHACHT

Halber Selbstbetrug

(Siltbreeze - SB165) 7-inch $2.50

Perfectly lubed and gurgling oink by this contemporary Berlin outfit, informed by the bare-knuckled scrappers of the Neue Deutsche Welle fringe. “A solid chunk of head-shrieking metronomics smothered in bassy transits and overwrought in thirsty shards … of pylon guitar,” proclaims Rottenmeats, “A rhythmically sharp and feisty beast, with … transistorized megaphone … vox … full of quirky angles ending on a screamed abruptness.” Edition of 300

In 1999 Corydon Ronnau and John Wiese made their first recordings as a more or less "conventional" blur/grindcore duo. Shortly after, the band entered a recycling period in which Wiese produced a number of albums and EPs, the first of which was this self-titled CD (originally released on Helicopter), transforming their original source material into hardcore musique concrete. Listed in Studio Voice's "New No Wave 200" and declared a new genre by Koji Tano, it is available on vinyl for the first time as a double-seven with new edits, new mastering and previously obscure material from the same era.

SISSY SPACEK

Window Hammer

(Chondritic Sound - CH289) 7-inch + DVDr $7.50 (Out-of-stock)

Nine tracks of pure aggressive grindcore on one side, backed with a noisy piece of broken glass and atmospheric trash, by the Mumma / Ronnau / Wiese incarnation in sharp, blasting hardcore form. Guest backing vocals by Joe Preston. Stamped DVDr has the band performing this material on their last West coast tour -- twenty more minutes of bliss and gristle.

SISTERHOOD OF CONVOLUTED THINKERS

(I Remember) The Day Smarty Marched Into Town

(Hemiola) Used 10-inch $3.00

Eggs veteran Rob Christiansen and Jeannine Durfee take pop music through the looking glass — solid hooks skewed by odd harmonies, unconventional structures and wildly creative concepts. Their off-kilter sense of humor is ever-present, with unexpected nods. From 1995

SKULLFLOWER / WHITE MEDAL

Skullflower / White Medal

(Turgid Animal - TA440) 7-inch $10.00

The long-running and evil Skullflower and Yorkshire's demented black metal one-man band both straddle the middle ground between experimental and all-out black metal assault, but in very different ways. Artwork by Utarm's Sindre Foss Skancke. 400 copies on black vinyl.

SKULLFLOWER

Village Sorting

(Self Abuse - SAR05) 7-inch $7.00

From 1995. Other details, as laid out by The One True Dead Angel: “Quaking guitars, hornlike guitars, guitars soaked in feedback, guitars dripping blood, blown speakers, coaxial cables catching on fire, gladiators with raw meat dripping from their jaws [overrunning] the tiny village and [burning] it flat, violence [hanging[ in the air like the tiny blackbird of doom ... a relentless, thudding drum [beating] like the throbbing vein in a sociopath's withered skull ... bright shards of guitar rot [bursting] through the violence every so often, accompanied by squeals for help.”

SLEEP CHAMBER

SixSixSix

(Vinyl on Demand - VOD79) 4xLP + 7-inch $70.00

Material from the first six years of Sleep Chamber, compiled by Brad Miller and Frank Maier. On the first platter and the seven-inch are pure and strong minimal synth tunes from early cassettes Ze Wizz Kidz, Dream Distillate (Inner-X-Musick 1983), and Music for Mannequins (Inner-X-Musick 1984). Platters two and three reveal previously unreleased recordings from 1982 to ’87 that range from minimal to the typical Sleep Chamber sound of the era, along with alternative versions, demos and unreleased tracks from the Admit to Desire period. Platter number four is an unreleased LP called Seremony, recorded in the beginning of the Satanic Sanction sessions (1985-86).

SMALL CRUEL PARTY

La Chrestomathie Du Désespoir

(I Dischi Del Barone - IDDB031) 7-inch $9.00

The inherent mystery and beauty of sound itself gets its first scrutiny by Small Cruel Party in fifteen years. Emphasis is on non-instrumental sound sources, the exact specific nature of which is not readily apparent. Manipulation of physical objects in acoustic space and a great deal of concentrated activity are the methods. Stamped white labels. Paste-on cover and insert. Edition of 200

SOMETHING ABOUT VAMPIRES AND SLUTS

Theme

(Rococo - RCC001) 7-inch $4.50 (Out-of-stock)

This five-piece from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, incorporates a big chunk of ineffable pop fun into their new wave-tinged sass rock. The vocalist’s bouncy howls could pass for those of a less grating Hot Hot Heat, and they further perpetuate the atmosphere of unadulterated joviality. In other words, they are your new favorite band.

SPATIAL RELATION / XIU

Highgate b/w Mysteries Of Chance

(Peripheral - PM2) split 7-inch $13.65

Highly infectious minimal synth wave. Clear vinyl. Edition of 250

Packaged in a wooden box with a 36-page booklet and T-shirt.

RODGER STELLA

In E

(Rude Fans) 7-inch + CD $19.50

Harsh bleary-eyed wildness from the tea rooms of Mars and the hellholes of Uranus. Former Macronympha noise dude joined by Damion Romero, Greh Holger and John Wiese on the seven-inch. Live forty-minute solo recording from October 2012 on the CD. Two color inserts. Edition of 100.

RODGER STELLA

The Final Programme

(I Dischi Del Barone - IDDB005) 7-inch $10.00 (Out-of-stock)

Two prime cuts of intense noise bliss from Rodger Stella, sort of in the vein of some One Dark Eye stuff with a psychedelic twist slightly reminiscent of C.C.C.C. Stuff flies out of everywhere. Edition of 200

STRAPPING FIELDHANDS

In The Pineys

(Siltbreeze) Used 10-inch $10.00

“Fantastic lo-fi punk jabber from 1994 combined with mouthfuls of old tobacco juice.”

Apna Desh / Rooko Bay

(Perfect) Used 10-inch $150.00

Different mixes of two ethno-surrealist tracks from 330,003 Crossdressers (Abduction 1996). Plays at 78rpm.

SUN CITY GIRLS

Present Uncle Jim, True Tales Of Homeland Security

(Empirical - EMP001) 7-inch $10.00

“Uncle Jim was a fast-talking, jive-ass, wheeler-dealer pot-smoking weirdo,” observes Mark Prindle, “But … he now sounds like a tired old drunk who has seen too much (and committed too many moral crimes) to view anybody else in the world with anything but complete disdain. He knows you can’t compete with him on any level, and he can’t stand to look at you. He speaks of the devil and hacking up Asians with a machete. He spits out rhymes as clever and unique as those of any rap artist, and he does so over cool smoky club jazz — brush drums, jazzy guitar noodling, cocktail lounge piano and trumpet.” Black vinyl from 2003. Guys.

SUPERCHUNK

Home At Down

(Snap Crackle Punk) Used 7-inch (one-sided) $2.00

Tear-stained indie rock from 1994. Originally released with Speed Kills #6. Orange vinyl

PETE SWANSON

High Time / Trees

(Emerald Cocoon - EC007) 7-inch $8.00 (Out-of-stock)

Sparkling acoustic guitar, audible vocals, audible room tone — a Pete Swanson no one has ever heard before — although his signature degradation systems are still in place (both sides end with a blown-out acoustic guitar emulating dirty-needled distortion). Acoustic strings, four walls and a voice dominate dusty interpretations of Dadamah’s “High Time,” and Gate’s “Trees,” both redolent of the darkest, coldest Dunedin winter as imagined from half a world away. Volume five in Emerald Cocoon’s Alone Together series. Edition of 300.

THIS IS YVONNE LOVEJOY

Wolverine

(Psychic Encumbrance) 7-inch (lathe cut) $15.00 (Out-of-stock)

A fragmented suite in anywhere from two to ten parts (depending on how you count) by this Glands of External Secretion spinoff group. Strewn throughout its genetic make up are: not-quite-outsider freedom familiar to anyone on whose face Melon Expander’s Brain-Sucking Peanunanners CD puts a smile; field recordings from locales rural, urban, foreign and domestic; and ahem, "musical" moments where naïve, intuition-based curiosity is satisfied with squeaky duck, Taiko drum, nut shells, recorder, piano, voice, slurping, and guitar. All scrambled in a primitive, musique concrète style. Edition of 25.

TITMACHINE

I Wanna Be Your Dog b/w Schneller

(Meeuw Muzak - MM035) 7-inch $8.75 (Out-of-stock)

The four members of Titmachine met in prison (each was convicted of crimes she did not commit). Unable to find gainful employment upon their discharge from stoney lonesome, the ex-inmates formed a band, naturally, the ideal vehicle for the unemployable. The lucrative alternative Dutch music scene rewards them handsomely in exchange for the quartet's release of pent-up rage fueled by continuing injustice. Since October 2006, Titmachine's raw and loose sound has remained unhampered by the constraints of talent, and answers questions anyone has yet to ask. Kinda like the Dutch Shaggs meets the female Monks and Flipper with a conscience.

TITMACHINE

We Build A New City

(Siltbreeze) Used 7-inch $3.00

“Stripped of its NDW gloss, Titmachine’s primitve, urpy grok of Palais Schaumburg’s ‘Wir Bauen Eine Neue Stadt’ is doused in raw Gueuze more than refined Pilsener. In other words, them yeasts be wild, y’all! The flipside — an original little jawdropper entitled ‘1989’ — is remarkably akin to what The Shaggs might sound like tackling the Urinals’ “Ack Ack Ack.” Pressed on heliocentric black vinyl in a humane edition of less than one million.”

ATSUSHI TOMINAGA

056 Sound & Phenomena – Conceptual Works

(Meeuw Muzak - MM010) 7-inch $8.00 (Out-of-stock)

Consistent with documents of electromagnetic induction, this “glitch classic” from 1999 captures one of the more elusive type of field recordings, The Sounds of Microwave Oven Interiors. Tominaga is interested in a symmetrical input-output system, where the electromagnetic wave represents imaginary speakers and ornamental devices that generate life. Acoustic properties are revealed slowly (comparable to the faint electronic noise of broadcast radio), a metaphor for the landscape of modern life. Clear vinyl, stencil-printed sleeve. Edition of 200.

TONO-BUNGAY

Sold By Volume

(New World Of Sound) Used 10-inch $3.00

Low-pulse cohesive flow from 1995

TORTURING LOVE

Cock Pig / Unoriginal Macho Energy

(Turgid Animal - TA469) 7-inch + cassette $15.00

C30 features longer cuts of the 7-inch tracks plus the two additional pieces "Super Rock And Roll" and "Total Fuck Off." Limited to 188 copies. Each copy has different hand-drawn labels.

TOTAL

Silver Pillows

(Majora) Used 10-inch $20.00

Less rock and more noise than Skullflower, this 1995 ten-inch by Matthew Bower is a dense, squalling barrage of guitar and cheap organ, building a wall of sound that draws on the guitar psychedelia of ’60s Deadhead jamming and industrial-strength minimalism. Lush feedback ambience beneath the debris of exploding speakers and overworked effects pedals recalls The Dead C and Keiji Haino. Handmade sleeve with rubberstamped text, gold paint, photograph. Hand-numbered edition of of 275. Sealed.

TROPICAL TRASH

Fear of Suffering

(Sophomore Lounge - SLO40) 7-inch $7.25 (Out-of-stock)

Residing in their own neck of the deep-country indie woods, Louisville's Tropical Trash deliver a smoky shard of rippin’ rawk, undergo a transition or two, then drop out -- the Bluegrass State's rejoinder to the MX-80 / Messthetic sound. Some of these skinny young men also dig glorious ditches in the hermit-kingdom labor camps overseen by Siltbreeze recording artists Sapat. Silkscreened jacket. White vinyl. Edition of 200

TROPICAL TRASH

Think Back Kick A Beer

(Sophomore Lounge) 7-inch $7.25 (Out-of-stock)

The follow-up to Fear of Suffering (Sophomore Lounge 2012) breaks bread on the breastplate and lets the loins girt around about the truth, substituting hot air balloons for lungs and cajones for brains, magnetizing the crotch-to-ego spinal disc-chordal dipole while stoning the erogenous zones and breathing life and id back into the exhumed corpse of classic rock, a G. Ginn and Sonic speedball kegel-clubbing affront to the American Mall Obese. Features dudes with the diplomatic immunity of Sapat membership and Louisville’s Astro Black ambassadors of telepathic communications.

TRUMANS WATER

Have You Got It Yet?

(Dirter) Used 7-inch $3.00

Two tracks recorded live in London, where the Branstetters and the Galloway wanted to capture “the spirit of the thing … mess [it] up, like totally skewing everything, destroying everything and still making it totally listenable.” Originally given away for free with the August 1993 issue of Fear And Loathing magazine.

THE TWEEZERS

Ten tracks of spazolicious electronic noise from 1994. White vinyl

TWODEADSLUTS ONEGOODFUCK

Champagne and Biological Women

(BloodLust! - B!116) 7-inch $12.00 (Out-of-stock)

This Boston band (Shane Broderick, Ted Sweeney, and Joshua Hydeman [now of Portland, OR]) has evolved through the worlds of grindcore, violent power-electronics, and confrontational performance art. This tsunami rushes out of the speakers, a concise and ferocious monster. Mastered by James Plotkin for maximum sonic potency.

TYVEK

Mary Ellen Claims

(XI) Used 7-inch $3.00

A savage broadside that attacks car culture on one side, and the mass media’s promotion of anti-psychotic drugs as a cure for demonic possession on the flip. The sound is distorted, all cheap old guitars and busted up drums, and the playing is usually teetering on the edge of ineptitude, at times falling off completely. The tunes and lyrics are straight outta overgrown abandoned lots and decrepit playgrounds, and there are plenty of strange little bones on the cracked sidewalks to puncture your bike’s Kevlar tires and brand new tubes. First pressing (edition of 700 copies on black vinyl with red labels and black-and-white glued paper sleeves, 200 of which have black and white artwork taped on to sleeves by hand (this is one of those)

Indie rock from 1996. Hand-numbered.

VACUUM

Vacuum

(Siltbreeze - SB110) 7-inch $8.00 (Out-of-stock)

Vacuum authored the clay tablets from which all great antipodean bands would glean substance to formulate The NZ Sound. The perfected aural symmetry of Bill Direen, Stephen Cogle, Peter Stapleton, Peter Fryer and Alan Meek fuses classic Nuggets, Roxy, Elevators and Velvets moves as a template for the unique plonk that became germane for all who sailed after. These recordings -- culled from '78 and '79 rehearsal tapes -- are available for the first time ever. "'Kicks" would go on to become an early staple in Direen's Builders discography, but the guitar on this version is particularly and wonderfully unhinged. The beautiful serenity of Cogle's "Shade," masterfully driven by Meek's keyboard, is as crisp out of the gate as the later, more honed version by the Victor Dimisich Band. The real thunderclap of the bunch is "Accident," another take of which can be found on The Builders' Beatin Hearts LP (Flying Nun 1982), where it sounds like the Tia Maria is spiked with peyote, the band psychically disembowels "Heard Her Call My Name" and feeds the guts to Amon Düül. Edition of 300.

VACUUM

Walking Slow

(Siltbreeze - SB155) 7-inch $8.00 (Out-of-stock)

The second installment of archival tracks from this legendary Christchurch outfit whose lifespan may have been short, but its members went on to Bilders, Pin Group, Victor Dimisich Band, Scorched Earth Policy, and Terminals. Four tracks: Walking Slow (Dux de Lux, 1979); Born & Bled (Barbadoes Street "the cemetery", 1979); Remember Breaking Up (Dux de Lux, 1979); Skulls (Oxford Terrace, 1978). Edition of 300.

Like a Frog In Winter

(Hospital - HOS138) LP + 7-inch $30.00 (Out-of-stock)

In 2004 while residing in Providence, Dominic Fernow of Prurient and Hospital began compiling Like A Frog in Winter, in response to his perceptions that noise had become rather hi-fi, technological, and cold -- entertainment rather than entertaining, something clean, something stimulating. Fernow's choices represent a more psychological, minimal, dismal, and rejected feeling, and calls for a return to the fetishistic and erotic attitude of noise -- and a negative one at that. Participating criminals, in order of incarceration: Ffh, A Fail Association, Immaculate:Grotesque, Cleanse, Pedestrian Deposit, Chrysalis, Ahlzagailzehguh, Habeeb, Craniopagus, Alberich, Bereft, Barrikad, Prurient, Sewer Election, Panicsville, Filthy Turd, Omei, The Seven Arts, Age Of Enlightenment, Mark Solotroff, Whorebutcher, Climax Denial, Stegm, Burden.

Never See You Again - Augsburg 1982-85

Minimal synth, postpunk, and psychotic beat from the early '80s by three bands featuring Joachim Stender of P.D., Kurzschluss, Permutative Distorsion, Skartrack and l'Aventure Imaginaire. Tracks by Schatten Unter Eis -- from early Casio experiments to Some Bizzare-style synth pop -- reveal rapid development of the band during their short time of existence. The legendary recording of Wahnvorstellung documents the band almost getting thrown off stage by a dumb rock audience. Flow My Tears The Policeman Said is garage rock in a Beauty Contest / Painless Dirties vein, remembered for Stender's mutation into a madman when they performed live. Edition of 110.

Optional Ingredients From A Vile Recipe Volume II

(Trackshun Industries - TR714) 7-inch $10.00

The second of Justice Schanfarber's three-part series was reviewed by CMJ when it was released back in 1995: “A peculiar six-track combination of hideous noise and gently radiant beauty. The noise tracks illustrate nicely the variety of things that the ear hears as noise instead of music, how easy it is to switch to thinking of them as music, and the way the overtones can be heard as notes. And their contrast is pretty effective – especially at the end when Total’s vacuum-cleaner-of-the-pit ‘Austrian Shade’ cuts off and makes way for Paula Frazer’s unironically gorgeous, retro country lament ‘Is She Lonesome Now’.” Also includes Beauty Pear, Brain Ruryk’s frenetic love/hate guitar, Bren’t Lewiis Ensemble’s “Mid-Range Phase/Link 3" Dome” (a different excerpt from the one on Induced Musical Spasticity), and Supreme Dicks. All covers are unique (pages torn from obsolete encyclopedias).

VICE WEARS BLACK HOSE

Part 4

(Turgid Animal - TA666) 7-inch $7.50

Obsessive crackle wall worship from Richard Ramirez and Sam McKinlay. The texture, apparently a muddied variation of amplified scraping, is chunky and, due to its mid-paced nature, runs with little air between each static pop. Less distorted than the typical high-gain crunch HNW peers.

VICIOUS FENCE

VOLUNTEERS PARK

Jerusalem Stone

(Destijl - IND122) 7-inch $8.50 (Out-of-stock)

New Jersey suburbanite Aviram Cohen (Silk Flowers, Soiled Mattress and The Springs, The Bad Form) uses a sequencer to program synths and drum machines, and sings about how boring life can be. An ’80s radio station blasts from a car parked under the subway overpass as the train roars overhead.

Two sides of total and obliterating nothingness. Play in isolation. Handmade sleeve, two card inserts.

VOMIT LAUNCH

Shocking Early Works, Vol. 1

(Butte County Free Music Society - BUFMS47) 7-inch $10.00

Three raw living room and live recordings from 1985, documenting the first three months of the group’s existence, imbued with decadence and vitriol. Repetitive profanity, spartan adornment, outward-looking disgust and contempt take centerstage on “Swelling Admiration,” a tune with less dance groove than a riderless bike getting hit by a car. Honest, a skipping Suicide album sounds like “Bohemian Rhapsody” in comparison. The oblivion-embracing ode to defeatism “The Only Way Is Down” conveys, with flourishes such as impatient sighs, blasé moans and flickering drum machine, distaste for the ubiquitous, neon-colored optimism of mid-’80s fratboy / sorority girl airheads. Overdriven and sloppy in places, its pulse is insistent yet dire. Flipper’s signature tune “Sex Bomb” is stripped of all its properties, pretty much, thanks in no small part to the hand-held condenser mic recording; most of what remains is the noise of the audience in the room and the only thing potent enough to slice though it — singer Patricia Rowland’s psychotic screaming. Deep-end bonkers. Includes vintage liner notes by Lindy Lettuce.

DITTERICH VON EULER-DONNERSPERG

O Du Froliche

(Meeuw Muzak - MM034) 7-inch $6.75 (Out-of-stock)

One small bit of light during the dark days of Xmas: Meeuw Muzak releases another fine seven-inch. Von Euler-Donnersperg has released some crazy-ass music on his own Walter Ulbricht label and Die Stadt, a mix of texts and electronic music. Here two soft electronic pieces are like snowflakes; almost kitschy and New Age as only super cheesy keyboard with all the wrong presets can achieve.

C.M. VON HAUSSWOLF

Operation Of Spirit Communication

TASHI WADA

Gradient

(Destijl - IND099) 7-inch $9.00 (Out-of-stock)

In service to Wada's ongoing work with sound perception as a basis for direct modes of listening, he and Marc Sabat produce two sustained tones, a fourth apart, positioned along a wall, one at each end -- a very slow glissando from one pitch to the other while moving accordingly. In other words, the string players' physical locations in space correspond with pitches of the sounds. One of his adapted violas of Harry Partch, who often worked with this type of harmony, was used for the recording of Gradient. The result is a sculpture-like presence shifting through all the blue notes.

WHITE MEDAL

White Medal

(Legion Blotan - BLOTEP01) 7-inch $7.50

Stripped down black metal from the North of England. “So distorted,” says Aquarius, it’s “difficult to tell if the band [is] plodding along doomily or blasting furiously, just a massive blown out rrrooooaaaaar. The drums pound away beneath an epic metallic riff that churns and throbs, slathered in blistering distortion … [M]ajestic.” Screen-printed Covers. White vinyl.

(VHF) Used 2x7-inch $3.00 (Out-of-stock)

WINTERCOFFIN

Forest Of Blitzkrieg

(Blak Skul) 7-inch (one-sided) $8.50 (Out-of-stock)

No glacier ever made it as far south as Memphis and the temperature is far from Nordic, but Memphis has plenty of death and dungeons, and the crackheads are grim if not frostbitten. Wintercoffin recorded “Forest of Blitzkrieg” at The Armory, as close to a squalid medieval torture pit as you could find in North America (and known to host metal and punk shows, late-night screenings of The History Channel’s Nazi Super Weapons, home recordings, SWAT raids, and a tall male ghost dressed in black with a white face). It also happens to be the base of operations of thrash band Evil Army and located around the corner from the former residence of Jimmy Blitzkrieg, who was later known as Jay Reatard. While Evil Army was primarily an outlet for Bay Area-influenced thrash aggression, Rob Evil and Blitzkrieg spawned Wintercoffin out of a love for ’90s black metal, choosing a classic Darkthrone-meets-Burzum-at-the-Battle-of-Ardennes sound. The mid-to-late-’90s blackened thrash of Dødheimsgard and Aura Noir also deserves mentioning. This is their sole finished recording. Check it out here: https://youtu.be/IbXi2UAt574

YEK KOO

Oh Woman / Flame Creation

(Emerald Cocoon - EC005) 7-inch $7.25 (Out-of-stock)

Gone are the horizontal string-sprawl epics of past, replaced by a new density and compositional focus. Dictaphone guitar-swirl and declamatory vocal preaching atop loping nod-out rhythm samples, you could almost say Helga Fassonaki (of Metal Rouge) has gone pop. But then there’s B-side: a sheet of live industrial slamming recorded at the Echo Curio in Los Angeles that sounds like a realtime channeling of Kali. Confusing, enticing, nuanced and brutal. Volume three in Emerald Cocoon’s Alone Together series. Edition of 300.

ZIP CODE RAPISTS

The Man Can't Bust Our Music

(Ectoplasm - ROV004) 7-inch $12.00

It'd be sheer folly not to defer to Mark Prindle on this: "Named after a godawful CBS Records ad line from the late '60s, the second ZCR release is a teeny little 7-inch with ten studio songs crammed onto it. It's very diverse and never gets boring. The ZCR originals include: a gentle tribute to Che Guevara; a throbbing hard rocker about kicking in the heads of audience members; a haunting piano instrumental by a man who can't play the piano; a needlessly offensive British nursery rhyme; a free-noise snippet; a country-western advertisement for a hotel frequented by the Zip Code Rapists. The cover tunes include: Pablo Cruise's 'Good Ship Pablo Cruise' (or rather, one line of 'Good Ship Pablo Cruise' sung over and over and over); John Lennon's '#9 Dream' as sung by the 'Hijinks' computer from Gregg Turkington's Great Phone Calls LP; Stephen Foster's 'Old Folks At Home' sung through a toy megaphone; a hideous dirtball rendition of The Monkees' 'Listen To The Band'."
