Anti-Natural

(Swill Radio) Used LP $10.00

In these “idealized field recordings that capture the hallucinatory isolation of an abandoned arctic base, Anti-Natural combines organic mechanistic processes into an aesthetic whole. Both severe and opulent, naïve and self-confident, it offers an escape route from the false dichotomies of man/nature and man/machine and attempts the transcendence of the impossible. Electronic recreations of the world around us, both real and imagined, foment immutable revolutions in sound.”

The Fourth Dimension Is Money

(Swill Radio) Used 2xLP $28.00

“Natural sounds, Irish harp, percussion, minimalistic hypnotic free music” is how one Japanese bilbo describes this mid-’90s album by Scout Foust and Carla Borecky. “Spacey jam by electronics, ethereal cries and whistles of birds sound, analog synths…. [C]omfort and oddities are blended exquisitely…. Recommendation panel in the luxury!” With currency pasted-on front cover

Our Pledge

(Swill Radio) Used LP $12.00 (Out-of-stock)

Ten songs from by Scott Foust, Karla Borecky and Mike Popovich on tape, voice, keyboard, bass, guitar. An addictive, repetition / minimal performance, recalling at times Young Marble Giants and Popul Vuh. The album “creeps under your skin and leaves something behind which cannot be dislodged,” marvels our friend at Sound Projector. “This is music that probes into unknown zones of feeling…. I know of no better way … to begin your explorations [of the psyche than] with this record.” Paste-on photo
