CHRISTINA CARTER

Bastard Wing

(Eclipse - ECL018) Used LP $10.00

Piano, electric guitar, voice and bells from 2003 by one half of Charalambides. Edition of 250

TOM CARTER

Root King

(Eclipse) Used LP $5.00

All of side one is “Lighthouse,” a slow, shimmering glissando of gonging bells and elongated swells of feedback, a glacial yet effervescent guitar piece. The second side offers more elusive notes and flowing, held tones that constantly waver between a vague throat / tonal source.

CHARALAMBIDES

IN CR EA SE

(Eclipse) Used 2xLP $15.00

Tom and Christina Carter’s four side-long excavations of the auditory plane from 2001, defined by interweaving threads of lap steel and chord organ, swept by intermittent currents of breath-born voice and serene modalities cycled upward into towering microtonal dissonance, and then flung down into corners of dark intimacy.

ERIC CLARK / KEENAN LAWLER / PELT

Keyhole

(Eclipse - ECL006) LP $15.00 (Out-of-stock)

This album is drawn from a pre-dawn session in a stone silo at Mount Saint Francis, a Franciscan friary just north of the Kentucky-Indiana State Line. Four of the musicians, Keenan Lawler and Pelt members Patrick Best, Mike Gangloff and Jack Rose, had played earlier that night at Rudyard Kipling's Cafe in Louisville. They were joined at the friary by Eric Clark, a multi-instrumentalist and metal worker who makes musical instruments, such as singing bowls and bronze didgeridus. Mikal Dimmick used a stereo microphone to capture events as they unfolded in the early morning hours of 12 July 2000. Only acoustic instruments were played and no electronic effects or processing were used. Play at 45 or 33 RPM.

DOUBLE LEOPARDS

A Pebble In Thousands Of Unmapped Revolutions

(Eclipse) Used LP $22.00 (Out-of-stock)

Immense, ungovernable music from 2001 that’ll turn your extremities purple. Processed voices seep through the wash of dark and hazy drones which evolve behind a primitivist mesh, slowly and organically without noticeable structure.

IAN MIDDLETON

With And Without Late

(Eclipse) Used LP $20.00 (Out-of-stock)

Side one takes a quasi-psych drone form while side two veers off into stranger waters, playing off some unexpected juxtapositions and combinations of sounds. Edition of 110. Paste-on artwork on both the front and back covers.

MONOSOV SWIRNOFF / THE SHINING PATH

Two Recorded Works

(Eclipse) Used Split LP $5.00

Swirnoff’s brooding cinematic air organ slow gasps through magenta dust-clouds of bowed guitar. Sea-shanty bellows underscore the spectral traces of whistles and ghosted vocals The Shining Path side “rockets upward into the fuzzed-out expansive zones of the Rallizes sound, tethered to an on-edge, speedfreak shake of Suicide rhythm, just too fast for comfort.” Edition of 500

JACK ROSE

Raag Manifestos

(Eclipse) Used LP $25.00

Rose’s rawest and most experimental album cuts across various acoustic styles, with a jagged and aggressive attack. “Black Pearls from the River” and “Hart Crane’s Old Boyfriends” are dense, serious assaults on the 12-string, with the intensity of the latter enhanced by Ian Nagoski’s roaring electronic backdrop. With subtle tabla accompaniment by Eric Carbonara, “Crossing The Great Waters” is another epic modal journey in the style of Pelt’s “Road To Catawba.” The traditional “Blessed Be the Name of the Lord” finishes off the LP on a calming note. Sealed

(Eclipse) Used LP $10.00

Spires That In The Sunset Rise

(Eclipse) Used LP $8.00 (Out-of-stock)

A huge excerpt from a two-hour show at Tommy’s in Richmond, Virginia, performed in April 1997 by the combined entire lineups of Pelt and Rake (with additional miscellaneous players).

Mike Gangloff (guitar, shenai, electronics), Jack Rose (lap steel), Patrick Best (guitar, bass resonator, conga), ~SKB (bass and percussion), V2G2 (nylon string guitar, percussion, shenai and voice), Planet C (moog, sax, percussion), Mick (dumbek and dijembe), Beth Jones (dijembe).
