CHARLES CURSE

Rain in Skull

(Olde English Spelling Bee - OESB24) LP $12.00 (Out-of-stock)

Fragments of disjointed folk melodies move across a plain of wheezing chords, tape hiss, children's voices, ambient washes, amp hum, electronic glitch and bits of buzz in general. The contrast between this Australian freakazoid’s downcast guitar playing and the physical claustrophobia-inducing weight of sound is both perplexing and intriguing. Color spray-mounted jacket. Edition of 200.

D.A.

Odeon

(Olde English Spelling Bee - OESB38) LP $17.00

Debut album by sci-fi oriented, vintage synth duo who began recording after being commissioned to make soundtracks for flotation tanks at a new age center in Texas. Now based in Los Angeles, they perform private rooftop concerts overlooking training grounds for the L.A.P.D. riot squads, where scrambling helicopters and practice gun battles complement the sinister, dystopian vibe of their compositions. Silkscreened jackets. Edition of 400.

JAMES FERRARO

Night Dolls With Hairspray

(Olde English Spelling Bee) Used LP $10.00 (Out-of-stock)

The sound craved by lunatic love puppets — magical pop radiance that outshines their topiary hairdos, a glam soundtrack spilling out of a 1970s Time Square erotic B-movie theater.

MONOPOLY CHILD STAR SEARCHERS

Bamboo For Two

(Olde English Spelling Bee) Used LP $6.00 (Out-of-stock)

James Ferraro (Airhead Entertainment), Spencer Clarke (Skaters), Lieven Martens (Dolphins Into The Future), and Eva Van Deuren (Orphan Fairytale) playing exotic keyboard melodies, long and steamy passages of heavily repetitive rhythms, and drowsily fluctuating drones.

STELLAR OM SOURCE

Trilogy Select

(Olde English Spelling Bee) Used LP $8.00 (Out-of-stock)

The second full-length from Netherlands-based electronic musician Christelle Gualdi consists of selections from three 2009 self-released CDRs: Crusader, Alliance, and Ocean Woman. Soundtrack-y synth excursions, and naively romantic futurism a la ’80s sci-fi B-movies, including a collaboration with Dan Lopatin of Oneohtrix Point Never. Includes free download coupon.
