50WRMX 005EP

DAMAGE, BENJAMIN: 010x EP 12" (50WRMX 005EP) 14.00
Remix pack number two from Benjamin Damage's solo album Heliosphere (50 012CD/LP) -- features raw, deep techno by L.A.'s Truncate and SCNTST from Berlin. Following the highly-praised Robert Hood remix of "Delirium Tremens," the two remixes of "010x" are no less effective and shall both be found in various DJ playlists.



VA: Five Days Married & Other Laments: Song and Dance from Northern Greece 1928-1958 CD (AMA 003CD) 13.50
Featuring sublime and unhinged music rarely heard outside of Northern Greece and Southern Albania, the performances presented in this collection span the range of plaintive, ancient dirges to hypnotic, droning dance pieces. The style, repertoire, and songs from this isolated region are unearthly in their euphonic appeal. Most of the music on this CD has not been issued since they were originally pressed on 78 rpm disc. A deep set of notes in a 12-page booklet is accompanied by comprehensive lyrical translations as well as original artwork by R. Crumb. This CD version includes as bonus tracks all four sides recorded in 1933 by the mysterious and archaic M. Harisis Epirotic Group. Respectfully crafted by Christopher King and Susan Archie for Angry Mom Records. Original artwork by Robert Crumb.



MAXIMILJAN & TAPESH: Sureshot EP 12" (AREA 044EP) 14.00
Area Remote welcomes the return of Maximiljan & Tapesh backed up with a remix by label head 2000 And One. Whether it's old school, new school, deep house, or tech house, Maximiljan never ceases to excite the listener. His feel for the right sound and his innovation is not only mirrored in his productions, but also in his sets. Tapesh's multi-cultural roots, as well as his experience and feeling for mixing the popular with the uncommon give his sets a flamboyant, magic touch.


RB 102EP

CHARLES, RAY: Mess Around/I Got a Woman 7" (RB 102EP) 11.00
Two essentials from Ray Charles paired on one natty little 45. "Mess Around" was one of Ray's first big hits, an irresistible piece of R&B that had floors messing around all over the U.S. back when it was first released in 1953. Sixty years on, you will find that it has much the same effect -- and the same can be said of the flip-side "I Got a Woman," another absolute classic, revived a few years back via Kanye West's usage of the song on his pop hit "Gold Digger." Nothing beats the original, though!


AUS 1349EP

KOMON: Walk the Walk 12" (AUS 1349EP) 12.50
Bristol-based Kieren Lomax (aka Komon) returns to Will Saul's respected imprint with Walk the Walk. As a former member of drum and bass collective Ice Minus, Komon's love for the roots of bass music are clearly recognizable in the thunderous bass lines present on "Walk the Walk/Poly Sum." The notable difference from his previous work is that here they go hand-in-hand with an overt 4x4 sensibility.



LINZATTI, STAFFAN: View from the Collapsing Centre 12" (BALANS 011EP) 14.00
Swedish futurist Staffan Linzatti has joined ranks with Balans. He delivers four transmissions of alienating techno. Bleeps, haunting strings, and 909 drum machines going mental. His work has always sounded unpredictable, brooding, and dark, and seemed to follow musical rules from another realm. It's as if these four tracks are delivered to us from a wormhole from the other side of the galaxy. Early support comes from Jeff Mills and others.



WOBBLY ORGAN: Musiqué Concréte LP (BANG 069LP) 21.00
NYC sonic brutality recorded in 1991 which has remained unreleased until now. Check this band: Ron Ward (Five Dollar Priest, Speedball Baby), Seth Tiven (Dumptruck), Billy Cote (Madder Rose), Jimmy Ryan (Blood Oranges), John Williams (Volcano Suns), and Mark Mulcahy (Miracle Legion). They got in the studio and, in one go and with no mercy, recorded an audiosonic hazard where Speedball Baby collapsed in the funhouse, on the verge of suicide. Weird, narcotic, brutally sonic and distorted, this record was produced in order to sound as raw and as wild as it came, by Sean Slade (Lou Reed, Radiohead, Dinosaur Jr., Pixies, Morphine, Dictators, etc.). Amazing.



HELVERT: Dance Music Vol. 2 12" (BASSCADET 002EP) 12.50
Bass Cadet presents one from Helvert. "From Turkey - A little conversation with my aunt": Me: "So what do think about the track?" Aunt: "What kind of music is this?" Me: "House, techno, I don't know music?" Aunt: "House like, you mean home?" Me: "Yeah." Aunt: "Ok... interesting name. I like it. But the groove is... I don't know if you still use that word... is... how to say it, too precise? You should let it loose a bit, I mean maybe, I wouldn't know you know."



VA: Zederholz EP 12" (BAUM 009EP) 12.50
Baum presents its first various artists EP, with two new artists and two label regulars. Leftover and label owner Resoe delivers two steady powerful dub techno cuts. Expect the usual deepness that will make the sub speakers bleed. The two new additions on Baum brings a fresh twist two the EP, Stefan Gubatz of Telrae fame comes with a really beautiful track with a laidback groove. Ryo Murakami is a diverse producer, and this time his track is experimental dub. Limited to 300 copies. White vinyl with pink "splatter".



GANTZ: U Won't Mind EP 12" (BLKBXXX 012EP) 11.00
Gantz drops his most anticipated dubplate via Black Box, flipped with a formidable remix courtesy of Thelem. "U Won't Mind" is instantly recognizable as the work of Gantz, with his incessant, chopped vocals, counterintuitive rhythmic switches and dystopian sonic aesthetic. Stop-start beats, pushy sub-bass and cavernous laser shots combine to activate the body but disorient the brain. Thelem fires the track into space with his sci-fi slanted remix -- cavernous bass drops, computerized FX and nagging AI vocals turn Gantz's original into a Y3K dub anthem.



I MARC 4: The Psych Jazzy Beat Of I Marc 4 CD (BCR 101CD) 19.00
"Italian soundtracks from the late 60s to mid 70s are practically a genre to themselves and have long been a treasure trove for those who seek unique jazzy psychedelic beats. In the early 90s, both the retro-exotica crowd and the rare groove DJs re-discovered Italian soundtrack music thus giving it a big boost in popularity. The Black Cat label responded to this renewed interest with its Loungissima series that re-packaged a variety of Italian soundtracks in attractive vinyl LP collections. The Psych Jazzy Beat of I Marc 4, features the music of one of the top recording quartets of Italian soundtracks, I Marc 4. The members of this quartet all came from a jazz background and originally grouped together in the mid-60s with the purpose of supporting various high profile vocalists. In the late 60s they moved on to being soundtrack composers whose instrumental works would then be collected and released on LPs. Psychedelic rock, soul jazz, brassy Herb Alpert style numbers, spacey exotic lounge music, goofy country funk, proto-progressive rock are the easily recognizable genres coexisting in this retrospective of one of the most hidden treasures of the Italian psych-jazz scene."


I MARC 4: The Psych Jazzy Beat Of I Marc 4 2LP (BCR 101LP) 32.00
Double LP version with printed innersleeves.



KOWTON: Shuffle Good (With Andy Stott Remix) 12" (BKEDIT 006EP) 16.50
One of the UK's most distinctive dance music producers presents a pair of drowned summer anthems backed by a warehouse-crushing Andy Stott remix. Joe Cowton deals out some super squashed swagger and aquatic drones on "Shuffle Good" and hollowed, arcane dub pressure on "EFX01" -- a regular scene setter in Ben UFO sets. Stott really delivers on the B-side, re-modeling "Shuffle Good" with nods to the sort of darkside D&B rinsed by Grooverider circa '96-'97 and the feedback fuzz reminiscent of Suicide or Powell.



MERVEILLE & MIRKO LOKO, CESAR: Vagabundos 2013 Part 2 Vinyl Sampler 12" (CADENZA 013SBEP) 12.00
The second 12" from the Vagabundos 2013 vinyl sampler features three tracks from Cesar Merveille's selection, opening with the gloriously deep and subaquatic Ricardo Villalobos remix of Envoy and backed with the glitchy Luciano remix of Tim Wright's "Thirst" and Rob Mello's No Ears instrumental mix of Losoul's "Lies," originally on the Classic Recordings label.



MISSING FOUNDATION: Missing Foundation LP (DAIS 048LP) 19.00
"In the 1980s, New York City was a dismal wasteland filled with urban decay and creative miracles. It was only a matter of time before the suits saw an investment opportunity, with cash in hand they bought off NYC and started the criminal gentrification of downtown New York, sterilizing any sense of culture and fumigating all residents deemed financially worthless. This kind of invasion brought the perfect storm in the form of Missing Foundation. Founded by Peter Missing in the early '80s, Missing Foundation and their 'Party's Over' logo challenged the governing trends of NYC, pouring gasoline on the tinderbox of the class war taking place on the city streets. Known for their hostile and fiery performances (and infamous ban from CBGB's in the late '80s), Missing Foundation left a scorched mark behind and started a movement still felt in the underground community today. Their debut album was originally released on Purge/Sound in 1987 and now Dais is honored to being reissuing this masterpiece of industrial folklore to a new generation who forgot where it started. Countless thanks to Erik Proft and Bill Cashman for all their help in making this happen. Limited to 500 copies."


MISSING FOUNDATION: 1933 Your House Is Mine LP (DAIS 049LP) 19.00
"The cacophonic discord of Missing Foundation and the prophetic vision of Peter Missing culminated into a follow up album following their legendary self-titled debut which was collected under the banner as 1933 Your House Is Mine. This sophomore effort was brought about in 1988 as a means to educate the forgotten and venerate their followers using brash performance tactics and industrial rhythm to rally their cause. An industrial soundtrack of urban protest, Missing Foundation found their voice, garnishing attention from the mainstream as well as being lauded by underground. The cultural divide had been marked with Missing Foundation's flipping martini glass signature declaring that the party was over. After being out of print for almost 25 years, Dais has reissued this legendary recording in a limited edition of 500 copies." Includes download code.



FIX, MARKUS: Back on Earth EP 12" (DVR 022EP) 12.00
Markus Fix returns to Deep Vibes Recordings with this stunning three-track solo EP. "Wanna Let You Go" is a beautiful warm house track with a sweet piano line. "Back on Earth" will make you jack. Pure energy, compressed to a juicy bass line. No more words needed. "Reagy Dub" makes the round-up and fills in somewhere between the two others. Warm up, cool down or open-air sunsplash. Check out this diverse and beautiful record.



DORHAM & JACKIE MCLEAN, KENNY: Inta Somethin' LP (DOX 888LP) 23.00
"Originally released in 1962 on the Pacific Jazz label, Inta Somethin' is a wonderful live session from the legendary trumpeter Kenny Dorham and alto sax great Jackie McLean, recorded live at the Jazz Workshop in San Francisco in the winter of 1961. Featuring four standards bookended by two Dorham originals, the album also includes contributions from dynamic bassist Leroy Vinnegar amongst others. Inta Somethin' is a classic hard bop live session that includes a version of Dorham's great 'Uno Mas' a year before the Blue Note album of the same name. Includes original liner notes. 180 gram vinyl."


TYNER TRIO, MCCOY: Inception LP (DOX 890LP) 23.00
"McCoy Tyner took a break from the classic John Coltrane Quartet of the early '60s to record this, his debut solo album, in January of 1962. Originally released later that same year on the legendary Impulse! label, Inception is essentially the John Coltrane Quartet minus Coltrane as it features Art Davis on bass and Elvin Jones on drums. A mellow and lyrical album that includes four Tyner originals, Inception is an early look at the work of one of post-bop jazz' finest pianists. Includes original liner notes. 180 gram LP."


REINHARDT, DJANGO: Django LP (DOX 892LP) 23.00
"Django, originally released as a 10" in 1957, compiles some of the earliest recordings of Django's famous Quintette du Hot Club de France from 1934 and 1935. Absolutely essential gypsy jazz from the master, presented by Doxy with the original liner notes by Alexis Korner, in a remastered 45 RPM 180 gram pressing."


REINHARDT & STEPHANE GRAPPELLI, DJANGO: With the Quintet of the Hot Club of France LP (DOX 893LP) 23.00
"Doxy is pleased to present another wonderful compilation of Django's work with his legendary group, The Quintet of the Hot Club of France. This LP compiles his London recordings, spanning the years between 1938 and 1946 and showing the progression of the group from its early years towards its disbandment in 1948. Featuring the incredible violin work of Stephane Grappelli, these recordings are absolutely essential and presented here on 180 gram vinyl with their original liner notes."


"Featuring classic 1930s recordings from both Paris and London with his group, The Quintet of the Hot Club of France, Parisian Swing includes some of Django's most famous songs, including 'Djangology' and 'Ultrafox'. As usual, with Stephane Grappelli at his side, Django outplays any of his contemporaries and continues to define the genre that is all his own. Classic material reissued with the original liner notes on 180 gram vinyl."


PIAF, EDITH: La Vie en Rose: Edith Piaf Sings in English LP (DOY 684LP) 23.00
"Finally available again on vinyl after decades, La Vie en Rose: Edith Piaf Sings in English (featuring Piaf singing English versions of ten of her most classic tunes) was originally released in 1956, when La Môme Piaf was at the apex of her career, and a huge star among English-speaking audiences as well. Beginning with the classic and iconic 'La Vie en Rose,' written in 1945 (and all the more delightful for fans to hear Piaf sing it with her endearing French accent), and ending with the classic 'The Three Bells' ('Les trois cloches'), sung with the nine-piece all-male a cappella group known as Les Compagnons de la Chanson. A classic release by one of France's national treasures." Comes on 180 gram vinyl.



FRANCIS INFERNO ORCHESTRA: Dreamtime 12" (DPC 044EP) 12.00
Francis Inferno Orchestra is Griffin James, a talented DJ and music producer from Melbourne. On this 12" he shows us two different sides of his output. The soulful "Amber Express" could be an homage to Moodymann, similar to "You're the One," whereas "Dreamtime" and "Dusty Echoes" refer more to the dub and techno-influenced corner of dance music.



AJTIM: Faynot EP 12" (EAN 001EP) 12.50
Ajtim signs to new label Ensydän. Industrial-rooted techno. Includes Northern Structures, Mike Parker, and Svreca remixes. Sleeves are handmade in black cardboard. Mastered by Artefacts Mastering in Berlin.


ESK 505993

ATTAR!: The Fool 12" (ESK 505993) 12.50
Attar! has joined the Eskimo family. Lead single The Fool features a stunning vocal by Cherry and comes with an amazing remix by one of tomorrow's deep house stars, Pete Oak. On the flip is "Colibri," the way a club track should sound, according to Attar! Attar! is the solo project of Belgian artist Renaud Deru. He has been bringing a festive mood to his sets all around the world and has remixed such artists as Gossip, Chrome Canyons, Giorgio Moroder, and Citizens.



OOFJ: Disco to Die To CD (FDR 022CD) 17.00
Weaving sophisticated orchestral scores with spacious electronic production, OOFJ's baroque modern pop perches on the edge of contemporary music, overlooking both the familiar past and the anything-goes future. After bonding over their mutual love for French synthesizer music, all things Russian, and Serge Gainsbourg, Jenno Bjørnkjær and Katherine Mills Rymer formed OOFJ, whose distinctive chilled-out sounds find their way deep into your ear like an electronic wind gyrating with eerie symphonies plus the delicate sound of expensive-lingerie vocals. Recorded with the Prague Symphony Orchestra, OOFJ's ambitious debut Disco to Die To is 10 darkly-tinted, downtempo movements of pop noir that simultaneously manage to reference disparate touchstones and inspirations; Nico's hypnotic gloomy '60s folk, techno's minimalism and subtleties, Twin Peaks, the majestic symphonies of 20th century composers, and rhythms and structures equally indebted to jazz and trip-hop. Often all in the same song. Bjørnkjær and Rymer met in New York, while Jenno was playing in the band Hessismore and working on film music for Lars Von Trier's Melancholia. However, OOFJ and Disco to Die To came about by accident, at first. Originally OOFJ (Orchestra Of Jenno) began as an instrumental solo project but everything fell into place with the addition of Katherine, transforming it into something larger in scope. After the passing of Katherine's father, they were in South Africa for the wake and upstairs in her brother's room they recorded the very first track. Two months later, while on a winter road trip through Europe, they recorded in the Swiss Alps, Germany and Copenhagen. Katherine went back to South Africa and recorded the vocals in her bed while her mother's parrot made loud noises. Meanwhile, Jenno recorded the scores with the Prague Symphony Orchestra and made the underwater sounds of the beat landscape while touring with The Danish Royal Theatre. They finished the album in Los Angeles while drinking lots of diet soda and breaking for walks in the Canyons. They kept some of the sounds of the parrot.


OOFJ: Disco to Die To LP (FDR 022LP) 17.00
LP version.



ISLEY BROTHERS, THE: Who's That Lady?/St. Louis Blues 7" (FRY 018EP) 8.00
Everybody knows the 1973 hit song for "That Lady" but few but the most avid collectors of soul music 45s are even aware that this record was actually a remake of a song recorded a decade earlier. This original version is a jazzy doo-wop workout clearly inspired by The Impressions. This wonderful version of the blues standard "St. Louis Blues" can only be found on an obscure Italian 45 that changes hands for big money. Here is a clean press right from the master.



FLIGHT FACILITIES: I Didn't Believe (Remix Package) 12" (FCL 089EP) 12.50
The ever elusive duo Flight Facilities present a new single for Future Classic. Alongside the tandem production outfit, Alexander Burnett (of Sparkadia) & Marcus Browne share songwriting credits and bring a silky pop feeling to the song. It's disco. No need to beat about the bush on that one. This time around, Flight Facilities are also joined by Elizabeth Rose, bringing an early '80s-Madonna flair to the track. Remixes by Tiger & Woods, New York-based label owner Lou Teti and studio buddy Light Year.


GR 2128LP

After their first single, Necrosis en la poya (1981), Spanish industrial band Esplendor Geométrico released their first cassette that same year: EG-1. A cult band and pioneers of industrial music, they were one of the first cases of true independence in the history of Spanish music -- not only financially and organizationally, but also in terms of creative independence. These first works were self-produced and distributed by the band themselves, before the appearance of Spanish independent record labels in the early '80s. The first edition of EG-1 (300 copies only) quickly sold out in the international underground circuit of cassette labels that was emerging during those years. It was reissued on the same format by different labels such as Datenverarbeitung (Germany, 1982), Ortega y Cassette (Barcelona, 1985), EGK (Madrid, 1987), and Línea Alternativa (Madrid, 1989), and later on there would be two CD editions. Without a doubt, EG-1 is one of the fundamental works by Esplendor Geométrico, where they started to develop their unique style of industrial music which would be such a great influence on other artists afterwards. Tracks like "Muerte a escala industrial," "Destrozaron sus ovaries," and "Neuridrina" are regarded by their fans as some of the best recorded by the band. On this vinyl edition (limited to 700 copies), the music has been remastered from the original tapes for the first time, achieving the best sound possible.

GR 2129EP

CODACHROM: Plastinka 10" (GR 2129EP) 14.50
Codachrom is the duo formed in 2012 by Madrid'sEugene Voronovski and Russia's Miguel A. Ruiz. This new electronic/rhythmic project was born out of the exchange of sound files between these two musicians, created with analog drum machines, assorted synthesizers, modified video game consoles, vocoder, and Eugene's processed violin. Computers have only been used in the editing but not in the composition process, which gives this record a retro feel reminiscent of the electronic pop of pioneering artists, '70s space electronic disco music and '80s techno-pop.


GET 54042LP

WATERS, MUDDY: After The Rain LP (GET 54042LP) 21.00
2013 repress. "The second of two electric-blues albums released on Chess Records and Cadet Concept imprint in the late '60s, Muddy Waters' After the Rain has achieved cult-like status amongst blues fans in the years since his death in 1983. After taking a backlash from critics with first attempt at adopting psychedelic influences on Electric Mud, Muddy made adjustments for the follow-up, despite keeping a majority of the same session players. This time, he toned down the psychedelic elements and put them in balance with his classic Chicago blues sound, and the results yield some vintage tracks that glow with fuzzy guitars and bass: 'I Am the Blues,' 'Ramblin' Mind,' 'Bottom of the Sea,' and 'Blues Trouble.' After being out of print for years, Get On Down is proud to present this rare classic from Muddy Waters pulled from the original masters and presented on LP with Japanese-style OBI and double-sided poster."



VA: Latinameriska Volume 1 LP (QUILOMBO 001LP) 21.00
Gran Quilombo Discos presents volume 1 in a compilation capturing the influence of Jamaican sounds on the Latin American continent in the late '60s/early '70s. It shows this influence in its different variants (ska, rocksteady, early reggae), with a very diverse range of groups, such as Toño Quirazco, Las Cuatro Monedas (The Four Coins), John Kingston and Montego Karachi, to Ronnie Montalbán, who devoted his life to ska. Renato e Seus Blue Caps had their own songs and versions as well. Includes one surprise bonus track.


VA: Latinameriska Volume 2 LP (QUILOMBO 002LP) 21.00
Gran Quilombo Discos presents volume 2 in a compilation capturing the influence of Jamaican sounds on the Latin American continent in the late '60s/early '70s. The label followed the same guidelines as the previous volume, and even included some of the same groups (Toño Quirazco, Ronnie Montalbán). Others appear here for the first time as is the case of Teipus and Rebels, who present little treasures that will delight fans of Desmond Dekker, or LosYorsy's and Donald, who published their 7"s internationally. In fact it was Donald's version that Spanish group Los Mismos made a very successful hit with back in the '70s. Includes a surprise bonus track.


GF 006EP

DJ DIE & JENNA G: 1000 Soul Songs/1000 Soul Songs (Addison Groove Remix) 12" (GF 006EP) 12.50
Die & Jenna G are both OGs of the D 'n' B scene and here they are with added penmanship from William Cartwright. The first remix has a healthy sprinkling of Addison Groove's magical 808 wonderdust and has made it to the BBC 1xtra B playlist, as well as receiving over 50,000 views in the first two days on the UKF Drum & Bass YouTube channel. Support from Goldie, Mistajam, and Skream, etc. The extended mix of the tune is only available on vinyl.


HN 134LP

NATH FAMILY: Sounds of the Indian Snake Charmer Vol. Two LP (HN 134LP) 19.00
"Second volume of Aaron Dilloway's recordings of the Nath family of snake charmers of Haryana, India recorded in Kathmandu in 2005. This second volumes recordings are a bit more raw, originating from video and cassette recordings as opposed to the first volume's hi-fi digital recordings (don't worry...they sound JUST as disorienting!) and containing a duo track as well as the full 4 piece. Originally released as a cassette in 2005, now on vinyl in an edition of 600 copies. Housed in a silkscreened jacket w/ the usual Hanson Droll flaps."



MORRICONE, ENNIO: In Lounge 7" (GRC 001EP) 8.00
"Released along with the first issue of the Italian cult magazine Il Giaguaro, and now impossible-to-find, this limited slab of vinyl carried 4 unreleased tracks from the movies L'Alibi, Le Foto Proibite Di Una Signora Per Bene and Gli Intoccabili, all composed by the king of the Italian 70's composers Ennio Morricone. For all his completists, this is pure gold."


GOBLIN: In Lounge 7" (GRC 006EP) 8.00
"Two previously unreleased cuts from psych-prog legends GOBLIN, respectively dated 1975 and 1977, released on 45 rpm and only sold originally along with Il Giaguaro magazine, finally available again after years of hiatus."



DJ HELL PRESENTS KLAUS NOMI: Cold Song 2013 Remake 12" (GIGOLO 300EP) 12.50
DJ Hell revisits new wave vaudevillian Klaus Nomi. "Cold Song" was actually written by 17th century Baroque composer Henry Purcell and poet John Dryden for their opera King Arthur. Nomi recorded a version for his self-titled album from 1981 and this 2013 remake adds a totally new dimension to the original, tailored unapologetically for the dancefloor with an Italo-disco edge. DJ Hell also re-envisions the piece as a house track, with African poly-rhythms and synthetic bleeps dancing around Nomi's sky-high counter-tenor. On clear vinyl.



UNKNOWN ARTIST: Sketches from an Island I 12" (IFEEL 027EP) 14.00
Ink-stamped white label 12" -- 300 copies worldwide. "This is what I call Balearic. Fresh & sweet." --Jose Padilla


JBJ 1047EP

HARDESTY, HERB: Just a Little Bit of Everything/Perdido St. 7" (JBJ 1047EP) 11.00
Two irresistible instrumentals from legendary N'awlins saxophonist Herb Hardesty, the man who was a regular fixture in Dave Bartholomew's band through the '50s at Cosimo Mattassa's studio and was Fats' bandleader. Here in a rare solo outing, Herb blows over two of his own compositions -- jazzy, swinging, blues-y numbers with a minor key feel. "Just a Little Bit of Everything" is actually an alternate take from what was originally issued, recently found on session tapes from Federal Records.



SHUKUR, SALMAN: Oud LP (MJJ 362LP) 23.00
"Oud virtuoso and composer Salman Shukur was the head of the music department and professor of oud (the Arab lute) at the Baghdad Institute of Fine Arts for over 30 years. However, despite his long and illustrious career, Shukur made only one LP, recorded in London in 1976 at Rosslyn Hill Chapel. Shukur's compositions, while based on the Arab classical musical tradition, attempt to bridge the gap between eastern and western music, and may be described as tone-poems, embodying both free and formal variation and improvisation. Despite his being almost unknown in the western world, Shukur was to the oud as Paganini was to the violin."



DAVE DK: Palmaille 12" (KOM 277EP) 12.00
Berlin's best-known secret and a sucker for melodies, Dave DK is certainly no stranger to the motions of the club crowd: having long been associated with Sasse's Moodmusic imprint, he is responsible for an impressive crop of much-acclaimed dance releases ranging from the tender to the ardent. Now, the seasoned producer presents the Palmaille EP on Kompakt, a delightful amalgam of swathing synths and heart-warming beats. Features vocals on one track from Heiko Voss.



CAMDEN, KEN: Space Mirror CD (KRANK 180CD) 13.00
"Space travel is the dream of many and the reality of few. Since Yuri Gagarin first shed the bonds of earth gravity in 1961, only about 500 humans have made the trip beyond the atmosphere. Ken Camden travels to space while still grounded on terra firma. His vessel of choice is a guitar and some effects with which he journeys on fantastical expeditions and surveys the biggest territory of all, the one between your ears. The glimmering sound fields he forms could be a soundtrack to an epic '60s science-fiction film, or a long forgotten grade school educational film strip explaining how humans would be living on Mars early in the 21st century. Camden's narrative rejects the dominant dystopian view of the future and posits that there are great voyages yet to be made in inner and outer space. The album forms a gravity-free environment in which the listener is suspended, enhancing an aural excursion to the outer reaches of the musical kosmos."


CAMDEN, KEN: Space Mirror LP (KRANK 180LP) 14.00
LP version.



WASSERMANN: Dumpfe Tone 12" (MAGAZINE 009EP) 16.50
Believer in the unconventional and an enthusiast of the new, Wassermann is reputed as the original rebel of the zodiac. Wassermann pores deep over what makes the world tick and can be trusted to come up with ideas and hypotheses which seem to be way ahead of his time. This is why he is attracted to the new and different. Things associated with Wassermann: rebellious, distribution, breaking boundaries, all fruit trees, orchids, independence, self-potency, freedom, rhythm, large flying birds. Strengths: electric attitude.



DIE GESUNDEN: Die Gesunden LP (MEDICAL 022LP) 19.00
"Die Gesunden (translated to 'the healthy ones') was mostly the duo of Mabel Aschenneller and Eschi Rehm (who sadly passed away on November 12, 2008). They were also joined on drums by Thomas Wydler (who later became known for his membership in Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds). Taking influences from Kraftwerk, Roxy Music, and Eno/Bowie (who were coincidentally recording Low in Berlin at this time), Die Gesunden was one of the first Neue Deutsche Welle outfits. The self-titled LP was released in 1982 on Innovative Communication which was the independent record label formed by Klaus Schulze in 1978 after Klaus became very interested in the earliest Berlin Neue Deutsche Welle bands (such as Ideal, etc). Mabel was very involved in the Berlin scene such as promoting local gigs for the early Einstürzende Neubauten in 1981 and shows at the Exxcess club (with shows by the Cure amongst other bands in their infancy) which also inspired the birth of Die Gesunden. Die Gesunden did fairly well around Germany with one of the highlights being a tour in 1981 supporting DAF (Deutsche Amerikanische Freundschaft). The LP is a diverse collection of songs that display a jagged electronic quality showcased throughout with hints of power electronics mixed with synth pop. The opener 'Die Gesunden Kommen' is an upbeat track with bouncing synth leads atop treated percussion with whispered lyrics. The second track 'Leutnant Miller' displays some of the aforementioned power electronics harshness with pleasant electronic melodies and commanding vocals. 'Sometimes/Manchmal' is a slow and minimal track with emotional vocals and mutated synth parts with monotonous tones that are quite entrancing. Overall, the record is a very diverse listen and will surely appeal to fans of early Neue Deutsche Welle (early Der Plan) as well as proto-industrial and experimental new wave. At the same time, it is definitely one of a kind and has no record that it can be directly compared. Contains bonus track of cover of 'Waiting For My Man'. This reissue is presented on high-quality 180 gram opaque 'baby pink' vinyl. Features slight alteration and reinterpretation of the original front cover and redesigned back cover. Limited edition."


BODY 11: Youth LP (MEDICAL 023LP) 19.00
"Body 11 is/was the one-man project of Tim Stickelbrucks. Inspired by the late '70s/early '80s icons such as OMD, Human League, and Cabaret Voltaire, Tim wrote and recorded four songs in 1987 in his apartment and self-released the Mind 7" EP in 1988. Rather obscure at the time, the 7" gained cult status later in the 90s when collectors and word of mouth fans began seeking out copies of the record. Soon thereafter, the cost of obtaining an original skyrocketed on the collector's market. Medical Records is proud to reissue the Mind EP: four songs along with unreleased recordings created at the same time. The unreleased tracks were songs that were distributed only on cassette (to friends, etc) at the time. The tracks have been transferred from cassette and have been remastered by Jacob Jacobsen for this reissue. The LP embodies the essence of the EBM (electronic body music) subgenre that was prevalent in the late '80s. Though retaining a DIY/demo feel, the tracks have a warm synth/beat laced mood that will surprise and delight fans of this era who are not knowledgeable of Body 11. The opener 'Wasteland' definitely evokes a rougher/distorted vocal style over a sequenced Front 242 style rhythm with treated guitar highlights. 'Attack' is a dance floor cutter with industrial percussion and carefully accented synth leads and samples. The more hypnotic (but no less catchy) 'Hearts' is a slightly more emotional vocal style over popping synths and drum machine rhythms. The unreleased tracks seems to interface with the Mind EP songs seamlessly. Fans of early Nitzer Ebb, Front 242, late '80s industrial (Wax Trax, Nettwerk) and even early Skinny Puppy will find this collection essential. This is long overdue for reissue and presentation to the world. This reissue/collection is presented on high-quality 180 gram 'milky clear' vinyl. The jacket art was envisioned by Tim Stickelbrucks with inspiration from the original Mind EP front cover art. Features bonus insert with liner notes by Kurt B. Reighley. Limited edition."

MR 325CD

VA: Dangerhouse: Complete Singles Collected 1977-1979 2CD (MR 325CD) 27.50
Dangerhouse was one of the first independent labels to document the burgeoning West Coast punk rock scene of the late '70s. Although short-lived, its work provided a vital outlet for the bands and other participants and set a template for many to follow. This collection compiles the 14 7"s released on Dangerhouse between 1977 and 1979, including classic tracks by Weirdos, Avengers, Alley Cats, X, Black Randy, Dils, Bags, Randoms, Howard Werth, The Deadbeats, Eyes, and Rhino 39. Includes an extensive 36-page booklet featuring an interview with Dangerhouse founder David Brown, many unseen photos of all the bands and memorabilia. "Dangerhouse, created by the triumvirate of yours truly, Pat "Rand" Garrett, and Black Randy, was a highly naive attempt to create a politically and artistically correct playground for the unique, nihilistic talents of the LA punk scene. It was clear something needed to be done. In the beginning there was a lot of musical talent that was going to unrecorded waste. Whereas the English musicians had been set upon by some of the top producers in the business, the very lack of commercialism implicit in L.A. punk seemed to drive away potential resources. Those were culturally weird times, Saturday Night Fever and burned-out super group remnants filled the airwaves. The early groups (like the Screamers, Germs, Weirdos, Black Randy) were very good at manipulating the local venue owners and press, and were able to almost immediately fill clubs and halls with folks who were just plain bored and curious. Suffice it to say that the scene had everything: every kind of self-abuse imaginable, negative social patterns, infighting, gender-fucking, etc. What needs to be talked about here are the musicians and other creative forces at work behind the scenes on the Dangerhouse product. Starting out, the studio was anywhere we could plug in; later, our home was the Kitchen Synch with the extremely copasetic Mike Hamilton as engineer. Over the years, Mike patiently sat while irate punks insulted his intelligence, and offered great 8 and 16-track advice to Pat and me, refugees from a 4-track world. To Dangerhouse, and the fans, the sound quality was paramount. The do-it-yourself aspect of the production and packaging spoke for itself. We created ideas for affordable products which set the pace for imitators, like the clear plastic-bag 45 sleeves (because traditional sleeves cost more than the records to be pressed) and the multi-color silkscreened picture disc used for "YES LA." Sad to say, the downturn of the record business in 1979 due to the so-distant "oil embargo" hurt everyone in the record industry and made it too rough a row to hoe for Dangerhouse. Tough titty. These recordings still sound as powerful and relevant as the day they were cut. If you, Mr. or Ms. Consumer, care about creativity as opposed to the number of units shipped, it was a victory. And if there was ever a label that released cool shit, over which I'd rather have been A&R man/Prexy, it sure as hell doesn't come to mind." --David Brown

DANNY & THE NIGHTMARES: Death of Satan LP (MR 332LP) 21.00
LP version. Death of Satan is their third and final full-length album by Danny And The Nightmares. It had been close to a year since they had gotten together to play music. The Nightmares set up in Danny's garage and pressed "record." Danny had a couple of ideas for songs. After those were played through, a few more songs came forth. When the music was over and they listened to play-back, they realized they had recorded a core of songs to constitute a new album. Never knowing which end of the compass they might bend in any particular night of playing, Danny And The Nightmares recorded everything. Over the years they recorded on micro-cassettes, reel-to-reel, boom boxes, and a four-track recorder. This time they had recorded on a digital machine. Over those years they had kept it close. They played and recorded at the Haunted House, or in Danny's garage. With snickers and grins, they knew they had a strong enough set of songs to elaborate on what they had recorded. They toted the machine to a string quartet. As they stood outside, they smiled while listening to the strings layering the songs. Danny And The Nightmares then returned to a couple of unfinished songs that weren't sitting still in the balance when they had submitted what was to become Freak Brain (2005). With the capacities of the new machine, they also decided to rework a couple of songs that had already been released, and struck in the excitement, recorded a couple more new numbers. A new passage would be discussed over eating baked cookies from the oven. An idea for a vocal or guitar overdub might come about from talking about a movie or a comic book as they drank soda pop. A bathroom or smoke break would be cut short if one of them decided to pick up a guitar, or sit at the drums, beginning another idea. In more spells of revelry came another album, the Death of Satan. It has been five years since the album was completed. Daniel has mentioned it in interviews while promoting his solo career, stoking the curiosity of some his fans. The distracters claim that Danny And The Nightmares are not good for Daniel's image. Conversely, some fans have claimed that what he does with Danny And The Nightmares is like an alter ego to his other work. Danny And The Nightmares is now dead. Includes a booklet with illustrations by Daniel Johnston.



SLUM VILLAGE: Evolution LP (NMG 051LP) 21.00
LP version. "Ne'Astra Music is proud to announce the release of Evolution, the new Slum Village album. Evolution is the long-anticipated release coming on the heels of the critically acclaimed mix tapes Dirty Slums and Dirty Slums 2. This album features new music from founding member T3 along with Young RJ and Illa J. Even though the group has suffered many heartaches and member changes over the years, Slum Village always finds a way to reinvent its brand. As the group has persevered despite the struggles over the years, it was only natural that the inspiration for this album title paid tribute to Slum Village's enduring quality. The meaning of Evolution can be described as 'a continuous change to a higher, more complex or better state' and that is exactly what Slum Village has ascribed to with their music over the years, culminating with this new album. The evolution of Slum Village continues with a reinvigorated energy, as founding member T3 holds down the legacy along with the Grammy-nominated producer Young RJ as well as young prodigy Illa J at his side."

VA: Carolina Funk: First In Funk 1968-1977 CD (NA 5036CD) 17.00
2013 repress. "Now-Again Records presents the domestic issue of Carolina Funk, the fourth CD in the UK-based Jazzman Records series that produced the landmark Midwest, Texas, and most recently, Florida Funk compilations. For this installment, we've moved up the Atlantic coast to look at the vibrant and original scene in the two rural states of North and South Carolina. Curated largely by resident North Carolina researcher and collector Jason Perlmutter, Carolina Funk presents 22 of the best, rarest and most sought-after heavy funk songs ever recorded, with breakbeats to spare. Without any large urban centers, much of the musical output of the Carolinas has been limited to single towns, with bands and their records seldom venturing further than the state line. From inspired percussive instrumentals to heartfelt slabs of soul; from rediscovered tapes in the garages of retired musicians to funk 45s so raw that they were blessed by James Brown himself -- this is Carolina Funk!" Artists include The J.D.'s, Wally Coco, Anthony Burns, The Black Exotics, Donnie Brown, George Campbell, Mongoose, Soul Impossibles, Dynamite Singletary, Sundia, The Tempo's Band, Roy Roberts and more.

VA: Spiritual Jazz CD (NA 5042CD) 13.50
2013 repress. Subtitled: Esoteric, Modal + Deep Jazz From The Underground 1968-77. "Now-Again Records, in conjunction with Jazzman Records, presents an expanded version of the compilation that introduced many listeners to the sound of the unsung musicians who, in the midst of the Vietnam War and the fallout of the Civil Rights struggle, created some of the most beautiful, spiritual and meditative music of the era. The music was at times funky, at times contemplative, but it always strived to say something about the world in which the musicians lived. Existing completely under the critical radar and largely ignored or unknown by music fans and critics alike, most of the musicians featured in this album won't be familiar to even the most seasoned aficionado. Their records, frequently turned down by distributors and record stores, saw little attention when first released -- and have seen even less since. But in this era of musical apathy, where so many music junkies look to the past for their musical fix, we have re-discovered hidden, obscure and esoteric jazz musicians who looked to the four corners of the earth, and beyond, for inspiration. With this anthology we evaluate 'Spiritual Jazz,' jazz created in the era after John Coltrane, a time which saw the evolution of an underground jazz that spoke about the reform of the soul, the reform of the spirit, and the reform of society: a music which was local and international at once, which was a personal journey and a political statement, and which was religious and secular in one non-contradictory breath. The music on this album reflects the social and historical forces at work during the closedown of the 60s dream; music made by close-knit collectives and individual visionaries, by prisoners and eccentrics, by mystics and political radicals. It includes music by acknowledged masters, and moments of brilliance by unsung figures known to us from just one or two recordings. There are songs from prison bands, Egyptian big bands, high school jazz ensembles, African musicians gigging with free jazz legends, and African American jazz heroes. Spiritual Jazz: Esoteric, Modal And Deep Jazz From The Undergound, 1968-77 is the jazz music of America in the age of civil rights, brutal repression, political assassination and war; a music that would guarantee the survival of the spiritual dimension in a society that was angry and traumatized, but nevertheless had seen hope of better days to come."

BLACK SEEDS/SOUND TREK, THE: The Black Seeds/Sound Trek CD (NA 5099CD) 15.00
"United States Army soldiers made the music contained in this special re-release during the politically turbulent early 70s, towards the end of the Vietnam War. The Black Seeds and The Sound Trek were bands comprised of soldiers stationed in bases across Western Germany. While little is known about the bands, the players, and the milieu they came from - other than what can be pieced together from a handful of photos and documents found in a box in the New York Public Library, and the vague recollections of some of those involved -- we at Now-Again Records have worked diligently with the United States Army and researchers the country over to present this important document -- and some damn good soul and funk music. Only one former band member has come forward during the assembly of this anthology, which has lead us to question: where did these talented performers land after their winning performances in Army-sponsored Battle Of The Bands contests afforded them (musical) tours across European Army bases? Perhaps some are still around somewhere: perhaps some are still involved in music; perhaps some were killed in action; perhaps some passed on after returning to the States. Wherever they are now, their legacy has been cemented in this exquisite re-issue, a snapshot of one of America's most politically tumultuous times."



TERJE, TODD: Strandbar 12" (OLS 003EP) 14.50
Todd von Terje dives into summer with a new single entitled "Strandbar," following '90s tradition by featuring three versions of the same piano-based idea, bringing in both a "samba," "disco" and a "bonus" mix. The samba mix is a percussion cacophony with a busy beat tailored to make your limbs loose, the disco mix is what Terje would've played IF he'd been asked to program the music at the Virgin space shuttle, and the bonus mix is... a bonus mix.

CHRIST.: Cathexis: Motion Picture Soundtrack CD (PARALL 022CD) 16.50
Cathexis: Motion Picture Soundtrack is the fourth widely-available album by ex-Benbecula Records head boy, Christ. aka Chris H.. The soundtrack was made in close collaboration with award-winning Swedish film-maker and video jingle animator for Japanese Space Shower TV -- Stefan Larsson, as a perfect counterpoint and counterpart to his up-coming digital movie release Cathexis. The film depicts an esoteric group of people, known as AUJIK, and their interactions with nature and technology, both of which are viewed by AUJIK as having spiritual qualities. The AUJIK create and interact with artefacts consisting of unique and multifaceted Artificial Intelligences, transcending emotional inputs to the artefacts' artificial limbic systems, revealing various aspects of the artefacts' minds. This symbiosis of refined and primitive nature leads the AUJIK people to a higher awareness of the self. Christ. is first and foremost a musician. Multi-instrumentalist Chris H. has a solid musical pedigree and an impressive back-catalog on the sadly-defunct Benbecula Records, and a handful of releases and remixes elsewhere. Christ. has created his soundscapes forging a unique path of musical beauty that escapes derivation. Christ.'s music is often likened to that of fellow Scottish electronic group Boards Of Canada. In fact, Chris H was an early participant in the nebulous Hexagon Sun collective from which BoC emerged and was a collaborator with the group until approximately 1995, appearing on the Twoism album, reissued by Warp in 2002.



HORROR INC.: Briefly Eternal 3x12" (PERL 095LP) 25.00
Triple 12" version. Perlon presents the first full-length from Horror Inc.. Montreal's Marc Leclair, a long-time buddy of Perlon and also known to some as Akufen delivers 10 tracks, taking us on a very personal trip through the depths of "Boo."



CHATMON/DONNA DEE, SAM: Nobody But Me/Nobody's Gonna Hurt You 7" (POPC 124EP) 8.00
Two more essential, groovy popcorn spins paired in one handy package. "Nobody But Me" is a beautiful, blues-inflected early soul-mover from Sam Chatmon, featuring a stunning vocal turn from sultry siren Gwinny Witherspoon. On the flipside is Donna Dee's "Nobody's Gonna Hurt You," a great piece of late-night, jazzy blues embellished by Dee's down south country accent. Whether intentional or otherwise, the two songs are lyrically and melodically similar, making this double-sider another neat little offering from the Popcorn label.



GALAX: Mysterious Smile of a Buddhist Image 12" (RFOR 005EP) 19.50
Room Full Of Records edition of Japanese space jams: Galax includes a member of Acid Mothers Temple in its ranks. 180 gram vinyl. Originally recorded live at Penguin House on December 17th, 2006. A-side rearranged by MANDOG and remastered by Kazuyuki Onouchi in December 2012. Members: Hiroshi Hasegawa (synthesizer and ring modulator), Hiroshi Higashi (synthesizer), and MANDOG (guitar and tape echo). B-side mixed and remixed by Numb.


RM 452LP

ROSENFELD, MARINA: P.A./Hard Love LP (RM 452LP) 22.00
On P.A./Hard Love, New York-based composer and conceptual sound artist Marina Rosenfeld generates an esoteric universe of radical sonic collisions. Developed initially in 2009, the album draws its roots following a series of idiosyncratic quasi-sculptural sound-system installations Rosenfeld installed in various disused and monumental sites including New York's Park Avenue Armory and Liverpool's Renshaw Hall car park. The music she composed for these installations was heterogeneous, repositioning resident noise from the sites (re-projected back into the sites via horns), her own voice and generous yet subtle electroacoustic elements. The results were more "tuned" atmosphere than active performance and sought to explore the potent combination of voice, amplification and space; playing with reflection and distortion, intelligibility, fantasies of publicness and broadcast. In 2012 Rosenfeld reached out to Annette Henry, aka Warrior Queen, and invited her to contribute original vocals to the project. The vocal contributions acted as a catalyst for the works; propelling the pre-existing compositions into new and unexpected directions. In combination with virtuoso cellist Okkyung Lee, the material was transplanted from live settings to the studio and transformed by a process of radical iteration. The resulting music asks questions of form, expectation and contemporary sound practices. P.A./Hard Love reveals the contingent nature of collaboration; something beautiful and complicated, and ultimately it's these relationships that form a kind of halfway point between conceptual art and contemporary music. It's in these in-between spaces that delicate, shimmering and ephemeral sounds can exist harmoniously with dissonant, abrasive, dark and complex audio states that are both explicit and ambiguous, anthemic and elusive. Limited vinyl edition of 500 copies housed in a gorgeous matte cello-glazed sleeve.


RS 015CD

BONUS: On Earth CD (RS 015CD) 15.50
2006 release. On Earth, is the first studio document created by the group, recorded with Marcelo Spinna at the Space in May 2006 with production assistance from Pete Swanson (Yellow Swans). While previous CD-R releases were entirely improvised, On Earth is comprised of three untitled pieces composed by the group with elements of restrained improvisation. Musically, each piece has a specific concern, ranging from extremely subtle microtonal shifts to distorted crashes of intervals against one another. On Earth captures the reductive Bonus sound with all the sustained tones and sparkling textures, but with a more focused and succinct delivery.

RS 037CD

COMMON EIDER, KING EIDER: Figs, Wasps, And Monotremes CD (RS 037CD) 15.50
2008 release. Figs, Wasps, and Monotremes is the second Common Eider, King Eider disc by Rob Fisk (Badgerlore, Free Porcupine Society). Recorded winter (2008) in Fairbanks, Alaska, it's full of the kind of bedroom isolation you might expect from a place where during that time of year the sun rises for only about two hours a day. Using mostly violin, guitar and his lovely falsetto, Fisk has crafted a bewitching set of soundtracks for being utterly lost. These passages ring out into the night and last until the moments just before waking. Songs on the brink of implosion, born of soft small movements that billow upwards but still cast an eye towards the occasional outbursts of bleak distortion. Comes in an 3 panel, offset printed folder with silver on white.

RS 040CD

GOODWIN, SCOTT: Off Light CD (RS 040CD) 15.50
2008 release. Off Light is the first proper CD by Portland based musician Scott Goodwin, who also spends time crafting tones in the trio Bonus. Not a huge departure from that group's direction here, although Scott has notched the distortion all the way down and cranked the pure tones up quite a bit. Composed entirely from sine waves, "Off Light" and its companion piece "Arc" are thrilling shifts in variation that move at a slight and measured pace, forming soft rhythmic beats that really seem to come alive at a high dose of volume, bouncing around the room like holographic reflections. If you could imagine a soundtrack to a zoned out meditation in a James Turrell sculpture, this would be it. Edition of 300 in an eye-popping two panel folder.

RS 056EP

HAGUCHI/ZELIENOPLE, HISATO: Tsuki No Seika Volume Four 7" (RS 056EP) 8.00

RS 075LP

GOLDEN RETRIEVER: Light Cones LP (RS 075LP) 17.00
2011 release. Golden Retriever was formed in Portland, Oregon in 2008 by multi-instrumentalists Jonathan Sielaff and Matt Carlson, both long-time participants in the city's potent music scene. Focusing on the relationship of two primarily monophonic instruments (Carlson on modular synthesizer & Sielaff on bass clarinet), and utilizing layering with a deft balance of improvisation & composition, the duo has created an infinitely varied approach to their sound world: dense, spacious, overwhelming, soothing and completely alien in equal measure. Light Cones is unique in the Golden Retriever discography as it's their first release more akin to their live performances, with each of the LP sides consisting of one extensive track. Both sides find the group exploring the various colors of their pallet. From the electronic bog that opens side A, to the more zoned-out meditations of the first half of side B. Sielaff's bass clarinet continues to be an anchor for the duo, with its lower organ-like register providing a wide earthly gravity for the layering of sound.



TANG, STEVEN: Disconnect to Connect 2LP (SMALL 007LP) 22.00
Double LP version. Comes in a gatefold sleeve. "Every producer's dream is to one day complete and release a full-length album. After a string of well-received 12" singles on my own label, Emphasis Recordings, and most recently, on labels like Aesthetic Audio, Machining Dreams, Syncrophone, and Dolly, I thought now is the time to start realizing that dream of the full-length album. The idea for the album really started around year 1999 and/or 2000, when I completed the tracks, "Interstice,' 'It's Perceived as Sound,' and 'Brink Of Dawn.' When the tracks were done, I felt they were better-suited for an album release because I experimented outside of the typical 4/4 dance track. I wanted to experiment with ambient music; like something without a kick drum, or different time signatures, which led me to creating a jazz tune using electronic instruments. 'It's Perceived as Sound' was conceived in that way. But putting an album out during that time would not have garnished the impact that I wanted, since I was still a relatively unknown artist. So I put the tracks aside. Over the last decade, I worked on many more 12' singles to get my name out there, while still working on tracks that I thought would suit the album. Tracks like 'Eternal' and 'Heat Burst,' produced back in 2011, help add to this album some of that Chicago/ Detroit vibe that I've been known for. As I was getting close to finishing the album, I was thinking which label should release it? The first thing that came to my mind was Smallville. I read two interviews on blogs featuring Smallpeople, aka Julius Steinhoff and Just Von Ahlefeld, who also run the label and store out of Hamburg. In each of the interviews, they mentioned me by name. I thought to myself, 'these guys really like my music!' Since having visited Hamburg three times now, I got to know the label, the people behind it, and thought my project and I would be a good fit. So I decided to send an email to Julius and Just to see if they were interested in releasing the album. They said yes, so here I am, proud to present to you, as well as Smallville, my debut album entitled Disconnect to Connect." --Steven Tang, Chicago, May 2013


SONG 170212LP

FENNESZ: 17.02.12 2LP (SONG 170212LP) 38.50
Gatefold double LP version on 180 gram vinyl. Christian Fennesz is an Austrian electronic musician active since the late '90s and influenced by artists like Fripp and Eno and guitar-synth pioneer, Chuck Hammer. Fennesz uses guitar and laptops to created "multilayered compositions that blend melody and conventional musical instruments with harsh, irregular glitch-influenced sounds and washes of white noise." Over the years, Fennesz has played and collaborated with a number of artists, including Mike Patton, Jim O'Rourke, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Keith Rowe, Peter Rehberg, Mark Linkous (Sparklehorse), and David Sylvian. In 2012 Fennesz also wrote the original soundtrack to the independent Austrian film, Aun, directed by Edgar Honetschläger, and based on the writings of Claude Levi-Strauss. On this double LP Fennesz can be heard performing in front of a live audience at the beautiful Marino Marini Museum (located in a medieval church) in Florence, Italy in February of 2012, backed by the images of the 1927 silent film by German filmmaker Walter Ruttmann Berlin called Die Sinfonie der Großstadt (Symphony of a Great City).



RZA PRESENTS, THE: Shaolin Soul Selection Vol. 1 3LP (STE 108LP) 25.00
Repressed. "Dug out from the archives of Stax Records, this collection of deep soul has been personally curated by The RZA himself. Containing heavy cuts from such legends as Isaac Hayes, Booker T & The MGs, Albert King, The Emotions, and many more, it's not hard to see the genius and ideas these songs and artists inspire, and their influence on the very history of The Wu-Tang Clan. A pinnacle as both a compilation of classic soul music, and a must-have for any Wu-Tang completist, this is an LP set not to be missed."


BROWN, APOLLO: 12 Reasons To Die: The Brown Tape 2LP (STE 113LP) 21.00
"Ghostface Killah's 12 Reasons to Die may be just a few months old but it's already consider one of his best releases to date. Many say the project, featuring production from Adrian Younge, is Ghost's best album since Fishscale. So good that it gets a second look and a whole new sound with the Apollo Brown version 12 Reasons to Die: The Brown Tape. Apollo Brown was asked by Soul Temple Records to record an alternate to the Ghostface Killah and Adrian Younge album. To date it has only been released as a bonus cassette version (Hence The Brown Tape tag). Keep in mind, the up and coming Detroit producer did not create a remix album, Brown was in fact given access to Ghostface Killah's acapellas and constructed beats around GFK's work. This made the project one of the budding producer's most challenging projects to date. That hard work has paid off as The Brown Tape is also one of Brown's best works to date and certainly an indication of the quality body of work still to come from Apollo Brown."


BLACK KEYS & RZA, THE: The Baddest Man Alive 7" (STE 702EP) 11.00
Repressed. "The Baddest Man Alive comes courtesy of the Wu-Tang Clan's RZA and Akron's hottest export since rubber, The Black Keys. The lead-off and stand out track from the Man With The Iron Fists soundtrack combines stomping hip hop rhythms and flow with fuzzy blues guitars and solid yet somehow unhinged drum beats. This truly epic coming together of a hip hop legend and a pair of reigning rock royalty is now available on seven-inch vinyl, featuring the unreleased (until now) instrumental version of the track as a B-side. The special vinyl offering is must-have companion piece for any fan of the film; it's equally potent soundtrack and film score, or the die-hard Wu-Tang or Black Keys completionist."



BABYMAN: High Like a Fly 7" (AKTSIE 042EP) 10.00
Finally available on vinyl again, the legendary concoction of myth-enshrouded, yet forgotten music producer Bronco "Babyman" Babic from the '60s, '70s, and '80s, and the best from back then. Was he born in Italy, the Balkans, or the Flemish part of Belgium? Many peculiar tales are told about Babic, who has revived his old recording company "Asexy" and is going to put out single after single of his dearest milestones. "High Like a Fly" is disco supremacy galore. The flip features boogie-shredder "Babypeople."



NYSTRAND VON UNGE, LUKAS: Studio Barnhus EP No. 1 12" (BARN 015EP) 14.00
Lukas Nystrand von Unge's music has been making the rounds on hissy cassettes, scratched-up CD-Rs and chaotic Soundcloud pages ever since he first started making music in 1987. These six tracks were recorded over a time-span of 10 years, all spontaneously composed in that musical/mythological wonderland where Mariah Carey and Ornette Coleman live together in sweet harmony. His emo-techno-pop anthem "Never Fail" appeared on James Holden's DJ-Kicks compilation in 2010 and he's been running the Amiga tracking scene related netlabel Ageema Music Club since 1997.

Led by the guitar virtuoso Omara Mochtar (Bombino), the group's debut LP -- volume two in the Guitars From Agadez series, represents the latest chapter in the modern sound of the Tuareg revolution. As of 2008, the Tuareg rebellion is in full force again, and Bombino is in exile to parts unknown. Agadez has been cut off from the rest of the country. The only road that connects this legendary city with the rest of the country is littered with land mines and the only escorts are the military. This music and its messages of hope, justice, and desire for validation of the Kel Tamachek way of life ring louder than ever. Group Bombino are gaining mythic status in and around the Tuareg community for their incendiary live performances. Coming from the same scene as Group Inerane and sharing some of the same musicians, Group Bombino showcase both sides of the Tuareg guitar style. The first half of this CD features the "dry guitar" sound, an unplugged selection of songs sung among the dunes, camels and stars of the Tenere desert. The last five tracks demonstrate the electric fury of the full band, a melding of heavy, psychedelic guitar heroics with a raw, garage sound, back beat percussion, all swirling in extended trance rock moves. Recorded live and unfiltered in Agadez and the surrounding desert in early 2007, with the band's equipment powered by generators and an unflinching dedication to the rebellion, Group Bombino's music transcends any influence and ignites the raw passion of its message to the outside world. Includes liner notes by Hisham Mayet with great photos of the musicians.



VA: Polyrhythmic Series No.1 12" (SVS 001EP) 12.00
SVS Records was set up by Beni Brachtel and Daniel Hermann-Collini as an imprint of Brachtel's sister project Selbstversorgersound (SVS). SVS takes different artists out of their comfort zone and confronts them with a primal lifestyle far away from their familiar periphery. This is part 1 in a series of three limited vinyl releases named Polyrhythmic Series 1-3. This first volume contains exclusive productions from Günther Lause, Larkin & The Sky, Bartellow), Zaquoir, and Lukas Rabe. Five techno tracks from dubbed-out to tripped-out and way beyond.



GINNELS: Plumes LP (TEN 101LP) 21.00
Ginnels is a Dublin-based solo project by Grand Pocket Orchestra and No Monster Club guitarist/bassist Mark Chester, with live friends Paddy Hanna, Bobby Aherne, Roy Duffy, and Ruan Van Vliet. Chester describes his gorgeous music as "like your favourite Byrds and Feelies records being drowned out by your neighbor's stoned noise jams. Except, actually good." After releasing two acclaimed releases in 2011, the self-titled album Ginnels and the mini-album Mountbatten Class (Long Lost Records), in 2012 Chester decided to record a 20-song, hour-long, double album called Crowns, influenced by such sprawling records as Magnetic Fields'69 Love Songs, The Clash's Sandinista!, and Guided By Voices' Bee Thousand. It was released on double cassette by Long Lost and brought Ginnels much acclaim. Plumes compiles a selection of tracks from Ginnels' three records plus other online-only releases, and it's the first time these tracks are available on vinyl. They were all recorded and mixed entirely in Chester's living room, built up from layers of guitars, vocals, "cheap keyboards and other assorted detritus." The approach and sound recall the glorious jangle-pop legacy of the Flying Nun label, early Pavement, and Elephant 6 bands like The Apples In Stereo. Over the whole album, from fast-paced tracks such as "Heathwaite Wood" and "Great Fall," through to more minimal, reflective moments like "Friends Are Dead" and "Champs," Chester's knack for delivering really strong, memorable melodies never fails to shine and astonish.



LX: Synchro Swim 12" (BIGSUN 001EP) 12.00
Three sublime edits by Zurich's finest, Lexx. This one's a must-have, for sure.



ROWL: Egipto EP 12" (CRES 004EP) 12.50
Rowl delivers The Crescent's fourth release with two original works packaged alongside a stunning remix from ASC. True to form, this is another beautifully varied EP exploring the depth of dub techno with influence from the UK's signature garage and dubstep sounds packaged across a plethora of BPMs. Early support for the remix from: Versa, M.U.D, DjRum, Synkro, Troy Gunner, eleven8, HVL, Space Cadets, ASC, Sam KDC, and more.



KENNEDY, INIGO: Emitter/Collector 12" (TOKEN 032EP) 12.50
Inigo Kennedy strikes back with a monumental new two-tracker. Both tracks emerged from the same studio session and definitely complement each other. While the pounding drums are omnipresent on this release, "Emitter" leaves us euphoric, while "Collector" is less explosive, more persistent.


TEG 75520CD

STETSASONIC: On Fire CD (TEG 75520CD) 16.00
2011 release. "Years before The Roots became a household name, Stetsasonic was already pushing the boundaries of what was considered 'hip-hop.' Formed in 1979, the crew -- featuring Delite, Daddy-O, and Frukwan on vocals, with music from DBC, Prince Paul, and Wise -- turned heads with their vibrant fusion of hip-hop and live instruments. Their 1986 debut album, On Fire, introduced the world to their unique sound: lots of punchy drum breaks and B-boy aesthetics, with upbeat, positive party rhymes. Prince Paul, who would later go on to find success with another Tommy Boy Records act (De La Soul), was already showing a talent for creative productions with tracks like 'Just Say Stet,' 'On Fire,' and the lead single 'Go Stetsa.' Frukwan would also join Prince Paul as part of the Gravediggaz in the early '90s. Recognized by The Source magazine as one of the '100 Best Rap Albums' ever in 1998 (with 'Go Stetsa' also named to their list of '100 Best Rap Singles'), On Fire is an undisputed hip-hop classic and an essential part of any music fan's CD library."



VA: Dawn Of The Dead (Unreleased Soundtrack Music) CD (JBH 011CD) 15.50
2013 repress. An absolute classic release from Trunk records, the unreleased incidental music from Dawn Of The Dead, including unique original and unseen artwork. George A. Romero's 1978 cult classic is possibly the greatest zombie movie of all time. Often copied, but never bettered, this thrilling gorefest has, over the years, gained literally thousands of fans throughout the world. There are dedicated webrings, websites, fan clubs and magazines just for the film, and it really is one of the greatest cult movies of the '70s. The music from the film was played by Goblin (the progressive Italian rockers), and their soundtrack was issued at the time and has never been out-of-print since its original release. However, the Goblin score is only a small fraction of the soundtrack. What eager fans have always wanted are the incidental cues. The weirdo electronics. The dramatic underscores. The bonkers ragtime-jazz. The truly strange big band numbers. Seriously, fans of this film have been waiting years for this one very special release. Carefully compiled on this album are these great missing musical moments. They were chosen for Romero by his friend and fellow horror genius, Dario Argento as they were cutting the film, and their twisted, dark humor is all over this release. Out of the 100+ cues Romero used in the film (some only 2 seconds long!), the tracks they have selected are the longest and most distinctive in the film -- this is the music the fans have been waiting for. Best of all is "The Gonk," a truly insane piece of mechanical, almost hypnotic big band jazz. Following on from "The Gonk" is a truly weird and wonderful menagerie of tracks -- including the rare country blues cut "Cause I'm A Man," performed by The Electric Banana (the band which included members of The Pretty Things). All together, these tracks build into a quite wonderful and unique mix of dark electronic horror and musical humor which is something hardcore horror fans are sure to enjoy.


LIBAEK, SVEN: Inner Space: The Lost Film Music of Sven Libaek CD (JBH 020CD) 15.50
2013 repress; Trunk is thrilled to present a compilation of the great lost film music from Norwegian composer Sven Libaek, on CD for the very first time. An Australian resident for many years, Libaek is considered one of the most important little-mentioned film composers of all time. These are some of the most desirable recordings out there for film music collectors, jazz heads and beat diggers. Produced between 1965 and 1974, these recordings include sounds from four desirable and exceptionally rare Australian-only scores. The music is modal, beautiful, hypnotic, warm, welcoming and sounds like nothing else on earth. It's where jazz meets the shark, where waltzes meet wildfowl and longboard surfers meet a lively sea of cool flutes and groovy, spacey, moody vibes. Trunk contacted Libaek to see if he had any old vinyl or other recordings kicking about, and he sent a tape of "To Ride A White Horse," a rare recording of his surfing movie soundtrack from 1966 -- one of the earliest and rarest examples of this film music sub-genre. Over the years, the prices of Libaek originals have shot through the roof as interest in his recordings slowly and steadily increase. As soon as you begin listening you'll quickly notice why -- the bright, warm sound that is classic Libaek is irresistible. His melodies are hooky and unusual, and the perfect accompaniment for films about the sea, wildlife and nature. And now you can swim about in it, too.



The latest in the TT Shaker series comes with an overtly feline theme. "Cat Walk" is the name of the game this time out -- the name of the label and indeed both tracks. Afro-Cuban percussionist Jack Costanzo plays "Cat Walk" as a sparse, prowling number accentuated by some moody guitar work, sleazed-out horns and his own rolling bongos. The Playboys offer up a contrasting take, with a nonchalant, twangy guitar riff leading a purring rock & roll backing.


VA 051EP

DEWALTA: Thinkers EP 12" (VA 051EP) 14.00
The Thinkers EP was heavily inspired by essays about metaphysics. Metaphysics looks at the things behind ('meta') the physical appearance and its relationship to the non-physical. The story of philosophy and metaphysics seemed to me like emancipation from the 'perfect being' and over centuries, it seemed to evolve into the 'real,' more incarnated and away from 'belief' or religion. I simply wanted to express my interest in these non-direct musical things, from which I get a lot inspiration for writing music." --DeWalta



VA: Crash of Thunder 2LP (VAMPI 153LP) 25.50
Vampisoul's third "all-KILLER-not-a-single-filler" set, compiled by NYC's DJ Mr. Fine Wine, featuring his personal favorites from the King Records catalog. This is an odd King compilation; for one thing, there's no James Brown on it -- nor any J.B. productions. It isn't even, strictly-speaking, a funk comp; isn't northern soul, precisely (no Cody Black or Junior McCants); certainly isn't R&B (no Little Willie John, no Hank Ballard, no Five Royales). In fact, it's kind of all over the place. Like some of the worst compilations in your collection. What is it, then, that has you so eager? Well, the Swinging Seven, for one thing. That mysterious Kentucky outfit whose lone King single, the stuff of myth, you've never heard (though you saw the look in the eyes of that DJ you grudgingly respect when you overheard someone asking him about it, and since then you've combed Gemm and eBay and Google and sales lists and... nothing!). Here's Mickey Murray, yes, his up-tempo funky Federal track; you danced to that one somewhere once. One you don't know by his brother Clarence Murray -- surely not a cover of the Moonglows? Well, you'll find out soon enough. Ah, quite a bit of southern stuff, recordings from Criteria Studios in Miami, from Bobby Smith's Macon, Georgia, setup. Robert Moore, hmmm, these two sides must predate his famous funk outing on Saadia. How will they compare to that monster? Oh, and the Presidents -- from Indianapolis, you learned on -- the tracks they somehow borrowed from Otis Redding's "Nobody's Fault But Mine" and Eddie Floyd's "Big Bird." Finally, you can practice those mash-ups that have 'til now been purely theoretical. More: Queenie Lyons, with the best "Fever" this side of Bobby Bland's, you've been made to understand by those who've heard it. Charles Spurling, Cincinnati tough guy, rumored to have punched out Mr. Brown himself (and paid for it). Frank Howard, that Beasties sample! Wayne Cochran -- well, at least he looks a bit like a bleached-out J.B. But wait, ugh, liner notes by that jive-ass Mr. Fine Wine. Well, no matter; you must get home and hear this music.



LOS SALVAJES: Lo mejor de los Salvajes LP (MRSSS 032LP) 25.00
Lo mejor de Los Salvajes, originally released in 1967, would be Los Salvajes' only album. It was a sampler from the six EPs recorded by the band in 1966-1967, with some of their biggest hits and a sound opened up to experimentation, thanks to the consent of EMI, their record label, due to the success of their previous recordings. Gone was the period of melodic or rock and roll covers, mainly of Italian and French songs. Los Salvajes went back to The Stones, plus The Troggs and Spencer Davis Group along with them, in an explosive agreement with the kaleidoscopic British pop of the time. The decisive factor, however, was the increase of self-written songs, creating a sort of genetic backbone from which they would transcend, and which started with "Al Capone," a minimal but robust R&B instrumental and the oldest track included in the LP. The gangster nod would be followed in their catalog of originals by "Soy así," an involuntary hymn of ye-yé self-affirmation and a first-rate nugget which referenced previous recordings such as "Satisfaction" and "Al Capone." Also with a generational viewpoint, "Es la edad" made a similar point as "Soy así," including the reference to long hair, but this time without the cocky stance, attributing their crazy attitude and silliness to their young age; all encapsulated in a rev-up of progressive and mind-bending guitar. "Las ovejitas" would be the peak of the lot, one of their collaborations with the radio presenter Luis Arribas Castro as lyricist and rhapsodist, who here is immersed in a dense freakbeat piece with which they tele-transported to the UFO Club in technicolor dreams. With its hilarious defense of the moustache, the "Paint It Black" sound-alike "Mi bigote" continued not only the band's hair obsession but also their psychedelic dalliances, featuring a sitar. This track would put an end to their cycle under the Regal label, later moving on to La Voz de su Amo, another EMI division on which they would release notable singles, with original songs such as "El Don Juan," before calling it quits in 1969. Lo mejor de Los Salvajes contains the whole productive artistic emancipation of Los Salvajes, marinated with a number of covers which aren't lacking in worthy details: the homemade fuzz of "Corre, corre," the fleeting psychedelic tricks that already appear in "Una chica igual que tú," or the lyric adaptation of their excellent version of "Paint It Black," translated as "Todo negro," in which the protagonist crosses himself when facing the black future ahead, a completely current message nowadays, even if girls don't wear op-art patterns anymore.


VF 001EP

GREY, TONY: Time Factor 12" (VF 001EP) 14.50
The legendary digger re-ignites the Lagos Disco Inferno and kicks off his own mouth-watering imprint with these two sides of boogie-down bliss. Irresistible Afro-disco, layered with delirious syn-drums and sick keys, and featuring a horn-line bumptiously whipped from Louis "Thunder Thumbs" Johnson's bass-playing on MJ's "Workin' Day And Night." Originally from Warri where he stayed throughout most of his career, Tony Grey's first band was the Famous Latin And His Dominant Seven. He gigged for a while as a James Brown imitator with The Great Peters, before his breakthrough fronting the Magnificient Zeinians, with some amazing 45s on EMI's HMV imprint -- best of all the psych-rock-funk monster Ije Udo. From the early to mid 1970s, his EMI sides range from Afrobeat to rock and pop. All Tony's records are great. He came up with various names for his backing bands -- the Black 7, the Super 7, the Black Kings. From the early-eighties, with the Ozimba Messengers, Grey's two recordings here were originally released on different LPs.



BAND, RICHARD: Re-Animator Original Motion Picture Soundtrack LP (WAXWORK 001LP) 27.00
"Re-Animator is a 1985 American science fiction horror film based on the H.P. Lovecraft story 'Herbery West -- Re-Animator.' Directed by Stuart Gordon, it was the first film in the Re-Animator series. The film has since become a cult classic, driven by fans of Jeffrey Combs (who stars as Herbert West) and H.P. Lovecraft, extreme gore, and the combination of horror and comedy. Roger Ebert: 'I walked out somewhat surprised and reinvigorated (if not re-animated) by a movie that had the audience emitting taxi whistles and wild goat cries.' Richard Howard Band is a composer of film music. He has scored more than 70 films, including From Beyond, which won the award for Best Original Soundtrack at the Catalonian International Film Festival in Sitges, Spain. His score for Re-Animator was lauded by the magazine Music from the Movies, which said, 'Band's music is dark and direct, creating an intense and eerie atmosphere, but always with a humorous touch... Surely, Richard Band is one of the most underrated composers in the film business.' Recorded in Italy in 1985, the Re-Animator score is performed by the Rome Philharmonic Orchestra. Layers of synth driven beats and eerie tonal figures layered by Richard Band make this score a classic within the horror genre, immediately recognizable amongst fans, and pays tribute to composer Bernard Herman (Psycho, Taxi Driver, Citizen Kane, Cape Fear). Remastered for vinyl from the original master tapes. Comes on 180 gram vinyl. Includes liner notes by director Stuart Gordon and Richard Band, and an 18x24" poster."



OZKA: Tiny Pleasures Part I 12" (WOLF 027EP) 14.00
Whether it be techno, house, electronic, or bass music, Belgian producer Ozka's unique take always sounds fresh. This is a two-part 12" series where Ozka showcases his versatility and craftsmanship. Tiny Pleasures Part 1 focuses more on the techno side of things. All four tracks have their own distinct sound signature and ambiance. From straightforward techno to wobbly offbeat and shuffling, sequenced futurism, Ozka always sounds like none other but himself.

YT 087CD

SAMPHA: Dual CD (YT 087CD) 10.00
Following the low-key online-only release of Sundanza in 2010 plus his noted collaborative work with Jessie Ware, Lil Silva, SBTRKT, and Koreless, Dual is Sampha's first full solo outing. The record was put together over a period of 18 months in the gaps between, and time after, an intense touring schedule with SBTRKT live. Working from his childhood home in Morden, the tracks were written, produced and mixed by himself in isolation. Offering an intimate and idiosyncratic glimpse into his artistic intent, the EP, which includes "Indecision," showcases Sampha's talents not only as a vocalist but more broadly as a songwriter and producer.
