BLOWN OUT

Planetary Engineering

(Oaken Palace - OAK007) LP $16.00 (Out-of-stock)

A journey into the heart of spaced-out psychedelic noodling by members of BONG, 11 Paranoias, Haikai No Ku, Drunk In Hell, Khunnt, and Pigs Pigs Pigs. Two twenty-minute tracks evolve around rolling basslines and driving percussion, like a giant spaceship venturing deeper and deeper into the universe, with Mike Vest’s waster-infused guitar freakouts going nowhere and everywhere at the same time.

CAUDAL

Forever In Another World

(Oaken Palace - OAK002) Used LP $12.00

Aidan Baker (Nadja, Whisper Room, ARC) spreads multi-layered, heavily affected guitar across the propulsive rhythms of bassist Gareth Sweeney (Gout) and drummer Felipe Salazar (Muerte En Pereira). Equally influenced by krautrock, post-punk, and spacerock. Edition of 500, 180g vinyl. Free download code.

ETERNAL TAPESTRY

Guru Overload

(Oaken Palace - OAK005) LP $18.75 (Out-of-stock)

The Portland-based psych boulangers dedicate their full-length to the orangutan, with all profits donated to The Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation. Mastered by James Plotkin, recorded in a private cabin deep in the woods, Guru Overload strikes a balance between the freaked-out A World Out Of Time (Thrill Jockey 2012) and the more laid-back Dawn In 2 Dimensions (Thrill Jockey 2012). The smooth flow combines exotic and new sounds with the best of krautrock and psychedelia. Red vinyl, recycled jacket, non-toxic ink. Includes free download card. Edition of 500

EXPO 70

Kinetic Tones

(Oaken Palace - OAK008) LP $16.00 (Out-of-stock)

Prolific drone artist Justin Wright propels the listener deep into other states of consciousness, using as fuel minimalism, spooky psychedelia, and harmonic soundscapes, reaching a total running time of just under 40 minutes. Dedicated to the critically endangered Flores hawk-eagle. Colored vinyl. Includes free download.

MERZBOW

Kakapo

(Oaken Palace - OAK010) LP $14.25 (Out-of-stock)

Starting with an intense machine hum, Kakapo shrieks, stutters, wails and maintains the all‐obliterating industrial drone for thirty-three minutes spread over two sides of green vinyl. Amid electronic solar flares and insect metal clanging, it’s a harsh curtain of endless crushing, rumbling immersion. Simultaneously soothing and wild, machinelike and warm, it’s a rare and strange creature, like the endangered bird (a flightless parrot native to New Zealand whose total population is below 200) that the album raises money to protect. Profits will be donated to the Kakapo Recovery Trust. Edition of 500. Includes free download code.

NADJA

Flipper

(Oaken Palace - OAK003) LP $20.00 (Out-of-stock)
