LASSE MARHAUG / SULT

Harpoon

(Pica Disk - PICA040) LP $16.50

The already dense and visceral expression of acoustic improvisers Håvard Skaset on guitar, percussionist Jacob Felix Heule, and Guro Skumsnes Moe on contrabass gets transforms by Marhaug into a maelstrom of layered sheets of scraping noise, rising and collapsing simultaneously. Edition of 200.

TODD W. EMMERT

One track from Emmert's Funeral album. Numbered edition of 50

LASSE MARHAUG / KIM MYHR

On The Silver Globe

(Sofa - SOFALP553) LP $16.50

A stereo version of the eight-channel piece commissioned for a Trondheim art biennale, distilled into less than 30 minutes. Myhr and Marhaug’s five-part suite — recorded using analogue and modular synths, oscillators, electronics, acoustic objects, and guitar — drops the listener directly into the flow of a grittily occluded drone mixed with looping spirals of static crackle and machine thrum. It then spreads outward to enfold soft, throaty swelling noises and ethereal melodicism, before morphing from a loose, gravelly scrape and skitter into quease-inducing electronic stridulation, and guitar-based sci-fi electronica, scrunchy microsound scumble and amplified infinity roar. It finally flows into bassnote pulse, and as everything else dies away, that pulse resolves into something like the clunk of a pickup cartridge, bumping and scraping runout groove.

RA AL DEE EXPERIENCE

Diatessaron

(Ajna Offensive) LP $18.00

Acoustic oriental craftsmanship with strong mystical content by members of Necros Christos (Ben Ya Min Al Dee on percussion and voice, and M. Dalos Ra on guitar, saz, voice). With poster

JEFF BURCH

Jeff Burch

(Spring Press) LP $18.00

Composed and recorded over a year between his home in New York City, and on residency in Stockholm, Tangier and Venice, Burch’s follow-up to his 2015 album summons a once familiar spirit caught inside the single note and the endless reverberations of the Fluxus streets. He sounds out endless violin and cello wail and draws long interstellar synthesizer vowels, pushing them up against a clangor of bells, dizzying organ-fed Leslie, glassy bows of cymbal and gong.
