PEGGY AHWESH / BARBARA ESS

Radio Guitar

(Ecstatic Peace) Used CD $6.00 (Out-of-stock)

Nine untitled tracks from 2001, with Ess on effects-saturated guitar and Ahwesh playing the short wave radio as if it’s a musical instrument. Partly planned, partly spontaneous musical compositions of dense and often melodic sounds and noise.

KJETIL D. BRANDSDAL

Kjetil D. Brandsdal

(Ecstatic Peace) Used LP $5.00

Intense and mesmerizing instrumentals from 1999 by this Norwegian sound-explorer. Experimental guitar, turntables and electronics.

CLARINETTE

Haze

(Ecstatic Peace - E!#60) Used LP $5.00 (Out-of-stock)

“Heavily attacked articulations that burst forth and leave trails of echoes behind them” from 2002, says Dusted, with “tinny, scratchy atonal guitar scribbles… clouds of guitar tremolo… [and] distant-sounding drum loops.”

THE COACHMEN

Ten Compositions (New Frontiers In Free Rock)

(Ecstatic Peace - E#99) LP $7.00

A deft and transcendental blending of aleatory strategies, free jazz, psychedelia, and progressive garage-rock from 1997 by Thurston Moore and cartoonist J.D. King.

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.

DARA

Dara

(Ecstatic Peace - E70d) LP (one-sided) $11.00

Plenty of noise (in the form of processed guitar squall) and the influence of synth-pop (simple Casio beats and vintage keyboards galore). Dara seems to be singing mostly to herself, with a voice distant and sporadic. The songs meander; favoritism clearly for noisy textures more than obvious pop hooks. Not especially poppy, and the noise is far from confrontational.

DAS DAMEN

Das Damen

(Ecstatic Peace) Used LP $5.00

Original pressing of the six-song debut from 1984 by Jim Walters, Alex Totino, Phil Leopold Von Trapp, and Lyle Hysen. The quartet’s sound “melds ’60s psychedelia and heavy acid rock with … noisy, punk-derived alternative rock.” Clipped corner.

ARTHUR DOYLE

The Songwriter

(Ecstatic Peace) Used CD $25.00

“Sloppy and fun, but meant to be taken seriously, Doyle is at his best when playing the saxophone, where simple melodies explode into a fury of squawking.” From 1995

OKKYUNG LEE

I Saw The Ghost Of An Unknown Soul And It Said…

(Ecstatic Peace) Used LP $10.00 (Out-of-stock)

Supremely amazing cello noise, energy, vibration, friction and true sound-feeling music by this mind-snapping Korean improviser / composer. Deep and resonant, at once furious and hushed, accepting the dare to be beautiful and frightening. Edition of 400

THURSTON MOORE / NEW BLOCKADERS / JIM O'ROURKE

Voloptulist

(Hospital - HOS144) Used CD $8.00 (Out-of-stock)

(Ecstatic Peace - HOS144) Used LP $12.00 (Out-of-stock)

Two tracks, one a collaboration with Thurston Moore, the other with Jim O’Rourke (and Chris Corsano on percussion). Tense drones with English clutter dissolving into tape hiss ambiance with booming, free barbaric yawps. Such butchery.

SONIC YOUTH / YAMATSUKA EYE

TV Shit

(Ecstatic Peace) Used LP $20.00 (Out-of-stock)

A symphony mix of Youth Brigade’s legendary “No Song II” in four takes, with backing vocals from Mark Arm and J. Mascis. Sealed

DAVEY WILLIAMS

Charmed, I’m Sure

(Ecstatic Peace) Used CD $8.00

1997 solo album by Curlew guitarist and longtime LaDonna Smith collaborator, showcasing his electric playing on the headless Steinberger guitar, and Beefheartian instant compositions that overdub multiple guitars and basses, a tobacco tin, a tape measure, and a cordless drink mixer. Sealed.
