Aidons La Norvege -- "Ostaggi" -- CD -- €10
1986/2010 Oltrelanebbiailmare, CD201004
Aidons La Norvege from Perugia, Italy, were formed in 1982; they showcased a typical dark wave style with Italian lyrics. They recorded an unforgettable 12" entitled "La Sfida" ("The Challenge", originally released by SPITTLE Records). Along with the aforementioned EP the band had significant live experiences, in Italy and abroad, recorded several demotapes and participated to various compilations (including the tape "The Fifth Column", released by French label Wallenberg and including contributes by DEATH IN JUNE, 23 SKIDOO and others). Aidons La Norvege quitted in 1988 playing only a few more occasional concerts. The CD release "Ostaggi" includes the four tracks that appeared on the "La sfida" 12", along with a selection of recordings from the same years that were only included on some promotional demotapes - and therefore substantially unreleased - for a total playing time of about 50 minutes of refined music to be remembered or rediscovered, also because the band have recently regrouped for some concert and is active again.

Andersson, Peter -- "Music For Film And Exhibition II" -- CD -- €13
2010 Old Europa Cafe, OECD 135
Like baking a sweet cake or cooking an indian dish you need good ingredients and spices to get the right mouthfeel and the splendid flavor of your desire. 'Music for Film and Exhibition II' is just like that: a levelled declitre of raison d'etre, a brimful tablespoon of Atomine Elektrine, a couple of teaspoons of Necrophorus and a little bit of this and little bit of that, mixed into a perfect blend of many tastes. Peter Andersson, well-known from projects like Raison d'etre, Stratvm Terror, Necrophorus and Atomine Elektrine, shows here broad spectrum of sonic atmospheres, like if all of his different music projects were combined into one. From ambient-drone-textures and electronic chill-out to concrete sounds to even pure atmopsheric piano tunes. 'Music for Film and Exhibition II' is the sequel of 'Music for Film and Exhibition' (Yantra Atmospheres, 2007). While the previous output contains collected works from different exhibition projects and movies spanning from 1999-2005, this sequel is focused on one single project; an exhibition. Peter Andersson has lately worked as a media producer at Swedish Air Force Museum and being involved with their new large permanent exhibiton about the Cold War. Within this project Peter has worked with sound design and movie production in particular. The sonic results are presented on 'Music for Film and Exhibition II'. Some of the tunes are used as soundtrack for exhibition movies while the main part are sonic atmospheres and soundscapes to create the ambience of the exhibition rooms. The music is presented here as stand alone productions, displaced from its original context. To fully experience the music in its environmental Raison d'etre there is no other way but to travel to the Swedish Air Force Museum. Until then, you may enjoy the music on its own. The CD comes in a six panel digipak covered with beautiful Sunset painting by italian artist Christian Montagna/FLOODSart. [press-release]

Bianchi, Maurizio / Peter Andersson - Henrik Nordvargr Björkk - Jarl -- "S.F.A.G. / S.F.A.G. De-Composed" -- 2 CD -- €18
2010 Old Europa Cafe, OECD 134
ANTE-FACTS: After the disintegrative period of my production (from “Symphony for a Genocide” to “Das Testament”), the purchase of a misanthropic echo-machine and the consequent decay of the electric-analogue machinery, my efforts was redirected to a pre-recording sound sublimation, so I started to re-compose the electronic metastasis of early times, filtering through dehumanizing effects of the echo-machine, keeping attention particularly to the explanatory process of my ancestral subjectivism. FACTS: The modulatory shaking of S.F.A.G is the oxygenating prelude to the irradiating bionic music later developed through levigating works such as “Endometrio” and “Carcinosi” and represents a milestone in my pre-apocalyptic production which later will culminate into the horrid of “Armaghedon”. The exegesis of this work reflects a strong attachment to smooth and round effects of the roughness of the frantic early days, but with a constant preference for the symbiosis between well preordered sound masses and not well defined radio broadcasts, like nebulae drifting in a space in trembling condensation. POST-FACTS: The interest of Gary Mundy of the British “Broken Flag” label (who later would have released the esoteric "The Plain Truth") gave me the incentive to make him listen to the demo tape which was of his liking so that in January 1983 he decided to publish the album as a tape with the title "SFAG 1981" (the year relates to the link with the date of the beginning of my vinyl production). In the early 90's Tegal Records was releasing a non-authorised "truncated" version on CD, but this new version of OEC maintains the integrity of the entire work and was completely digitally remastered by Peter Andersson (Raison D’etre). [Maurizio Bianchi] The original album is accompanied by a second CD with 3 de-compositions using extracts of the original S.F.A.G. recordings done by 3 well known Nordic industrial artists: Peter Andersson (Raison D'Etre), Henrik Nordvargr Björkk (MZ.412), Erik Jarl (IRM). The whole is coming in a nice vintage packaging reminding to the first Industrial/Vinyl era: Gatefold cover as the old vinyl covers but CD sized and vinyl-look CD's. [label info]

Bible, Jeremy & Jason Henry -- "Ound" -- CD-R -- €7
2009 Abgurd, AB-55, (ltd. 100)
American artists JEREMY BIBLE & JASON HENRY work in the field of electroacoustics, digital sounds and field recordings constructing deep and smooth Drone Ambient with light touch of experimental and slightly noisy sounds.

Birch Book -- "Vol. III - A Hand Full Of Days" -- CD -- €14
2009 Little Somebody Records, LSR 11

Birds Of Tin -- "Altarwise" -- CD -- €10
2009 Diophantine Discs, n = 24, (ltd. 500)
We are very pleased to present the latest recordings by Birds of Tin: a project we have long admired and fate finally brought us together. The two lengthy tracks of "Altarwise" were recorded in late 2004 and remastered earlier this year. The first track is a 30-minute experimental work that gradually moves through a wide range of sounds (echoing chimes, mysterious noises, subdued clanking, drones). The second piece is an epic 46-minute composition of deep ambient/drone music that manages to float freely through the listener's imagination while keeping his attention... While many modern day experimental artists have moved on into the computer realm, Birds of Tin has remained true to the experimental sound of tape loops, lo-fi samplers, and collections of unique toy instruments running through small fx boxes. The sound of the work may have become more cohesive and seamless over the years, but the methods have largely remained the same. Birds of Tin was always about creating and expressing by opening the heart and mind to the muse... in this way the sounds flowed through the artist, not from the artist. Birds of Tin is honest music. As the quote from Jackson Pollock states emphatically, every artist paints what he is. In the case of Birds of Tin, the sounds are no mere window dressing..this is who he is... Brooke Oates' Birds of Tin project has been active since 1996. His previous works have been released on such labels as Manifold, Solipsism/Self Abuse, Syntactic, XZF, and Hypnos. Additionally, Birds of Tin has collaborated extensively with such artists as Rapoon, Mechanism, and Augur... Housed in a custom printed color wallet. [press-release]

Boris -- "Soundtrack from film Mabuta No Ura" -- CD -- €15
2005 Essence Music, ESS005, (ltd. 1000)
The Japanese masters of drone and analog feedback never cease to amaze us. Fans actually never know what to expect from a new album. Sludgy guitar riffs, super distorted psych rock or mighty minimal drones? Just be prepared for a new masterpiece, the way only they seem to do it. Soundtrack from film Mabuta No Ura (translated as Backside Of The Eyelids) presents BORIS at their most abstract personality. A stunning guitar-driven psychedelic voyage to an imaginary land where Pink Floyd's "More" meditates with Sunn 0))) drenched in ambience and feedback! Being a flowing and brooding soundtrack to an imaginary film conceived by the three band members, the album manages to present the listener to a number of moods and soundscapes without actually breaking out of its shell. From mellow, dreamy Syd Barret-inspired acoustic incursions, hazy vocals, slow post-rock tones and rhythms to occasional bursts of dynamics passing through avant-noise experiments and mammoth deep drones of blasting energy (like on the 12 minutes long "Space Behind Me (part 1)"). A contemplative masterwork! Hard to imagine what sort of film Mabuta No Ura must be? The evocative sounds here give us freedom to conjure up appropriate images and quoting Atsuo's own words: "This is a soundtrack for images that appear on the mabuta no ura of the listeners, by reading the stories contained on the album and listening to the music. It's dew made from unconsciousness of Boris members. The dewdrops are spun into thread and the thread forms a whole story. The way we refer to images of the daily lives." We are glad to present this extended Brazilian/world CD version of Soundtrack from film Mabuta No Ura, containing different artwork and exclusive extra music not available on the Japanese CD/LP, housed in a slipcase that holds our luxurious custom heavy mini-replica of the gatefold vinyl including a set of cards unveiling mabuta no ura stories and photos of the band members taken in their most recent European trip.

BpOlar -- "Pheromones" -- CD-R -- €9
2009 Practising Nature, PN09033
Second release for BpOlar on Databloem's sister label Practising Nature. The follow up to his (Dirk Driesen from Antwerp) acclaimed debut The White Heads, is another adventure in intense and moving cinematic soundscapes. BpOlar's dynamic and unique sound will grab you from the first note and will keep you hooked till the last note fades away.... Dirk says: "I made most of this music when pheromones were mainly dormant, autumn and winter. Composed like a painting... layer by layer... fussing around with computers until something is bigger than the sum of it's elements... Picture yourself with an Amaretto-coffee or a Finnish vodka... or just a bio-lemonade.... starting quit cinematic... over rusty industrial... to dada". [press-release]

Coniglio, Enrico feat. Manuel P. Cecchinato & Massimo Liverani -- "Sea Cathedrals" -- CD -- €10
2010 Silentes, cd201026
Five superb tracks of deep and evocative ambient music, enriched with echoes of ancient ritual suggestions. The immense spaces and the abyssal deepness of the sea, but also the sound of the bowels of the Earth, the colour of the sand of the desert, the energy of the wind, the strenght of all the Elements, the infinite cycle of day and night, of life and death… A long circular journey through interchanging atmospheres that shake and capture, dragging with energy, then leave room for more quiet and soothing introspective “stasis”, and again become dramatic and overwhelming. A great, unmissable album of “classic” ritual ambient music. [press-release]

Corpoparassita -- "L'affannoso Respiro Del Gatto" -- CD-R -- €7
2009 Abgurd, AB-48, (ltd. 100)

Crawl Unit -- "Stop Listening" -- CD -- €10
2000 Ground Fault Recordings, GF008
A pioneer in sound event constructions, Crawl Unit (Joe Colley) has been releasing material since 1992 on labels around the world, including Drone, Manifold, G.R.O.S.S., Ant-Zen, Chocolate Monk and Self-Abuse, among others. Crawl Unit has also appeared on over a dozen compilation recordings, composed sound for dance and performed live nationally and abroad. In addition to recording and performing as Crawl Unit, Joe Colley also runs the renowned label Povertech Industries, releasing material by sound artists such as Michael Prime, Hafler Trio, Hands To, Crawling with Tarts, Francisco Lopez and many others. With Stop Listening, Joe Colley, aka Crawl Unit put together a beautiful sound art record, one of the finest productions on the Ground Fault label. Five works make up the 55-minute program. Most of the material is related to ambient drones, the purest and most soothing example being "Empty Sound". "(Untitled)" sounds like a treated hurdy-gurdy, at least something more metallic. But the highlight is the first piece of the set, "Overload Harmonics" (15 minutes). Sitting on the fence between avant-garde minimal drone music and noise, it takes the shape of a slowly evolving piece punctuated with strange pollutions -- totally entrancing. The same comment cannot be applied to "Study for 3 Speakers", a "live" recording of a 3-channel speaker installation. There are interesting ideas, some rattling sounds seem to indicate the use of objects and contact microphones in the speakers (a technique better exploited by Xavier Charles in Silent Block), but overall the piece remains more technical than absorbing. The main reason for that is the distance kept between the music and the listener. A more binaural recording may have done the trick, although the piece also lacks a bit of cohesion, its segmentation failing to bring something more to the table. Still, Stop Listening is a strong album. [Francois Couture]

Djinn -- "Suicide Box" -- 3 CD-R + 3"CD-R -- €25
2009 Old Europa Cafe, OECDR 038, (ltd. 111)
After years of silence, finally here returns this great Italian dark-industrial project: DJINN. "Suicide Box" collects three works relesead between 2001 and 2004 previously out on Slaghter Production, now sold out and impossible to found. The three albums are a rare example of pure nihilistic music completely different from the classical dark-ambient productions. The listener is brought into a state of total isolation. "Suicide Box" also contains: one mini 3" CDr of unreleased tracks, one Djinn pin, four inserts. The work is dedicated to the memory of Marco Corbelli - aka ATRAX MORGUE (RIP) who discover and gave voice to DJINN project since its birth. [press-release]

DS Matter -- "Harmonia" -- CD-R -- €7
2009 Abgurd, AB-51, (ltd. 100)
After releasing two albums (Untitled and Pinky Lips) this project of Denis Shapovalov (SUNCHARIOT, ADRIVA, ENMERKAR) added two symbols to its name and one album two the discography. "Harmonia" is an oversimplification of frequencies or "supercompression" as an interpretation of author's point of view on the nowadays digital mastering in the mass-music that makes the final mix sound unified. The album presents only saturated frequencies on rise and fall. This sort of averaging allows disclosing new aspects of pure acoustic sounds of glass, plastic, wood, metal recorded with microphones and digitally processed. The album contains three long meditative tracks in a sophisticated electroacoustic manner with interesting variations of frequencies and warm droning backgrounds. [press-release]

Failing Lights -- "s/t" -- CD -- €10
2010 Intransitive Recordings, INT036
An evocative work of bleak electronic atmosphere and suffocating dread, Failing Lights is the intensely personal vision of Michigan (via Lexington, KY) artist Mike Connelly. While he has toured the world as 1/3 of legendary industrial/noise units Hair Police and Wolf Eyes, Connelly spends his days crafting a much different sound on his own. Under the Failing Lights flag, he has self-published a nearly uncountable number of cassettes and CDRs of rough drones, detuned improvised grit, blown-out burl, and unstable acoustics in tiny editions that quickly vanish into collector-land. Intransitive is proud to present the defining – and first widely available – Failing Lights statement, an album of sinewy horror with a fine-tuned beauty within its darkness. A single piece in five sections, Failing Lights begins with disquietingly barren negative space. As the album creeps forward, it steadily dispenses sheets of diffuse throat-scratch and skittering strings, culminating in a blast of molten organ. Not noise, ambient, improv, black metal, or anything else: this is pure Failing Lights. [press-release]

Gerechtigkeits Liga -- "Hypnotischer Existenzialismus / The Games Must Go On" -- CD -- €14

2008 Rigorism Productions, RP014, (ltd. 100)
Dim dusty death ambient full of depressive guitar drones, sick cries and moans, muddy noises and suicidal washy rhythms. A perfect soundtrack for the last days of a self-hater's life. DVD-box. [YAOP]

Girnu Giesmes -- "Bevardes Salos" -- CD -- €13
2008 Autarkeia, ACD 029

Grassow, Mathias & Tomas Weiss -- "Electric Angels" -- CD -- €10
2010 Databloem, DB031-2010
Grassow & Weiss join up for another spacious adventure, showcasing an hour of high quality Ambient with an amazing array of subtle and intricate detail. Although the music evolves slowly and deliberately, it's probably one of their most varied albums up to date. Ranging from dynamic and engaging dronescapes to razor-sharp produced textures, flavored with a touch of early Space Music. Electric angels is a fusion of heart and mind. Leaving the industrial age of the 19th century and the information age of the 20th century behind, the 21st century opens the door to the age of consciousness. Electric angels is a musical representation of this passage from the old era into a new one. Limited CD in special two panel digi file. [press-release]

Grzinich, John -- "Surface Scripts" -- CD -- €10
2010 Semperflorens, sf05, (ltd. 500)
Surface Scripts was composed from field recordings, site-specific actions, environmental installations and wire instrument sounds recorded from 2008-2010. The title refers to my interest in the time-worn processes of nature and the effects this has on various materials such as stone, metal or wood. Much of the sounds we hear around us are the acoustic effects of these processes taking place while the visual patterns are written as ancient scripts. A set of small lines carved into a stone by water may have taken thousands of years, yet the sounds we hear are momentary. [John Grzinich]

Haynes, Jim -- "Sever" -- CD -- €10
2009 Intransitive Recordings, INT032
It gives me great pleasure to present Sever, the third solo album by San Francisco-based composer Jim Haynes, whose singular music evades simple attempts to describe it. The process of decaying and wearing down materials is implied in Sever; its passages of rough clang and cyclic scraping metal seem implacably tangible, as if one is witnessing time-lapsed erosion in action. For me, Sever conjures images of oncoming storms, abandoned industrial sites, huge empty warehouses, creaking glass, ships rocking in a port, the middle of the ocean far from land. Sever is an engaging album of evocative, highly visual drone music made up of layers upon organic layers that are in constant motion, and yet seem somehow still... Jim Haynes has exhibited at Westspace (Melbourne, Australia), Diapason (New York), Jack Straw Productions (Seattle), and Works (San Jose), Eyedrum (Atlanta). He has collaborated with Loren Chasse (as the duo Coelacanth), Keith Evans, Steve Stapleton (Nurse With Wound), and irr.app.(ext.). He runs the acclaimed Helen Scarsdale label, and works as the Editorial Director for 23five, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the development and increased awareness of sound arts within the public arena. He has written extensively on sound art, noise culture, minimalism, and general music experimentation for The Wire, The San Francisco Bay Guardian, Metro Pulse, and Chunklet. [press-release]

The Joy Of Nature -- "The Empty Circle Part III - Anitya" -- CD -- €10
2010 Rage In Eden, RAGE 74
Anitya is that which has no existence in the beginning and no existence in the end. Its nature is impermanence. The record was created in two different and very special periods of time and it musically unites both western and eastern sounds. The tracks contained are the musical expression of different kinds of dreams. It consists of folk, experimental, psychedelic and industrial elements, and even classical music but sounding, at various places, like ritual music. The structures of the tracks owe as much to classical as to psychedelic music. [press-release]

Kadaver -- "Automatic Autopsy" -- CD -- €8
2009 Topheth Prophet, TP018, (ltd. 500)
Second album of Israeli project on Topheth Prophet label. "Automatic Autopsy" is a bit strange material which is not aggressive unlike many of his other works, it's built on blending various styles and this gives specific oppressive sound, and Michael Zolotov did a good job on this. The album consists of multi-layered sound structures of feedbacks, field recordings, sampled loops, etc. which create overall terrifying and depressive atmosphere. [Sickcore]

Karma Marata / Kristian Giorgini -- "...And Still Remain" -- CD-R -- €9
2010 Ufa Muzak, UFA38 / Skullline, SLCDR110-10, (ltd. 120)
Neo-Folk / Military Pop. "One day the city will surrender and new barbarians will come to pull most terrible crimes. The replete and refined culture will turn to nothing, to dust under the feet of ignorant conquerors. They will destroy everything that was accumulated and systematized by this civilization in centuries, in one night all monuments, paintings, books and inventions will be committed to eternal nothing. This happens all the time, because this is a part of life itself, like nature and the right for rough uncontrolled power. Then the barbarians will go away, leaving only remembrances, quickly erased by time, feelings hovering over the ruins..." The 40th release of the label is a collaboration of German and Italian artists. A deep cultural excursion into martial - neofolk - synthpop musical areas. Professional sound cultural cafe will give you the passes for solemn and Teutonic-like romantic ritual from Karma Marata. After a short rest on a glade, chest full of mountain air, burned by cold water, as if by enchantment you're invaded by warm and mysterious aromas of Corsica - Kristian Giorgini. Gentle vocals and staggering ecstatic electronics... 6-panel hand made digipak. [press-release]

Kinetix -- "Final Archives" -- CD -- €10
2010 Silentes Minimal Editions, sme 1043
This is the final chapter for this project run by Gianluca Becuzzi - well known for his old dark wave project LIMBO but also for his solo works and collaborations with Fabio Orsi. FINAL ARCHIVES is a sort of collection of rare tracks recorded from 1999 to 2006 totally reworked and remastered in 2009. ABSOLUTE GREY is the title that Kinetix gave to his graphic artwork selection exhibited with an ambient score specifically composed for the exposition space. The exhibition is made up of ten grey scale serigraphs on white forex sheets a metre square and a composition of 20 minutes played through two loudspeakers with one woofer covered in grey powder on top of a white cube. RAW MATERIALS is a collection of seven short tracks from early Kinetix productions. Noise gestaltmusic. A multi-dimensional concept created with sound layers and ambient concretism. These tracks help the listener to understand the starting point of Kinetix's sound research. RESOUNDING SCULPTURES is based on the concept of "composition for blocks of sound" made in the 50's and 60's by Iannis Xenakis. For this reason traditional compositional criteria (harmonic-melodic / rhythmic-metric) replace the various criteria of plastic / spatial forms. Part of the sound sources used were extracted from the works of Iannis Xenakis to whom this composition is dedicated. [press-release]

2010 Silentes Minimal Editions, sme 1039
Tense electronic plots, calm ambiental stasis, inserts of sharp and harsh metallic sonorities, distorsions, filaments of subliminal melodies, masses of dark and penetrating low frequency drones. The journey of Lasik Surgery starts with a whirlwind of atmospheres and perpetually prismatic sonorities that have a big impact on the listener. This project was born from the minds of Pierpaolo Zoppo (Mauthausen Orchestra), the memorable noise-power electronic author who firmly came back to the fore in the recent years, and Gianluca Favaron, a skilled master controller and sound assembler with a long experience, already active under other aliases (Ab'she, Under the Snow, Metal Music Machine).

Maaaa -- "Human Waste" -- CD-R -- €7
2009 Rokot, (ltd. 100)
This Karelian project has been very active giving gigs and producing studio works during 2006-2007 but as the founder moved to Poland there has started a sort of hiatus for MAAAA. "Human Waste" was issued by Rokot in 2008 as a tape with additional bizcard CDR and got a lot of good response from listeners worldwide. Due to some wishes of people who were late in getting a copy of the first edition, we decided to make a CDR version to provide everybody with a great piece of Power Electronics. Don't be confused if you heard some of MAA(AA) earlier works that contain raw and chaotic Noise. On "Human Waste" nicely constructed tracks are pulsing directly through your liver right to the spine. The sound is thick and mangling. Maybe the whole picture is not that agressive and insane but if you want a nice "CONTROL making ATRAX MORGUE-like throbs" album -- you'll be satisfied.

Two hours and a half of music collected on a double CD set that also contain a DVD video. Two long tracks of sublime and evocative pseudo-abstract and multicoloured ambient textures, built with “discreet” and repetitive background microstructures layered with continuous and infinite variations worked out from “clusters” of sounds and “sketches” of melodic sequences made of light sonorities, “delicate” and “quiet” as well, but also hypnotic and warm… Fragile harmonies and mild dissonances in a timeless sonic continuum that enwraps and “rocks” the listener, among infinite spirals and floating waves in an everlasting movement… Another new, mind-boggling masterpiece, absolutely unmissable for all the lovers of Michael Mantra’s music. [press-release]

A great album for a project that has recently born again with an unsuspected and inspired artistic vital energy. [press-release]

Ogni Videniy -- "Tajushie" -- CD-R -- €8
2011 Vetvei, V11, (ltd. 181)
Tajushie ("Melting") was recorded by Petr Abysov and Alexandr Chulkov in spring 2009. Entitled by a mantra of the Buddha of Medicine, it was planed as a meditative work directed on harmonization of energy streams of the listener. Undoubtedly, a water and air delicate game, a live recording of melting ice, songs of streams, sounds of singing bowl's vibrations, bell's ringing and singing winds carries away with a sound stream all the negative kinds of consciousness, clearing and healthing our inner world. The process of meditative immersing dissolves the listener and lets him melt in the Universal Absolute. The release is presented in six-panel full-colored envelope Vetvei & Vresnit Art.

Orchis -- "A Thousand Winters" -- CD -- €11
1997/2009 Infinite Fog Productions, IF-05
ORCHIS is an English Dark Folk band consisting of Tracy Jeffery (who also sings with Cunnan and J Greco's SQE), Amanda Prouten and Alan Trench (Cunnan, SQE, Twelve Thousand Days(with Martyn Bates), Temple Music). We have so far managed to release four albums to date starting in 1994 with The Dancing Sun (cryptanthus /World Serpent), which was more a collection of formative pieces than anything else, then in 1997 the concept album that was A Thousand Winters (cryptanthus / World Serpent). Mandragora (Trisol), an alchemical album based around the themes of life, death and the transmutation of the soul followed in 1999 and in 2001 Trait (a ‘best of’ released through the Russian Brudenia label). Relocation and various tedious problems put ORCHIS on the back burner for a while whilst we buried ourselves in other projects like the busy bunnies we are; we raised our heads out of the mire again in 2007 with the ‘Other Days’ download ep via the (now sadly defunct) Woven Wheat Whispers legal folk download service... There have been numerous compilation album appearances over the years, with some tracks turning up on the ‘Trait’ album. We like to think, as the Fairports had it, that we are Nicely Out Of Tune - there was the odd perfect take, but those were never the ones that went on the albums - rather it was the ones that kept to the True Spirit.... For now, we are happy, to inform you about the important, re-release of the second long-play, from this Esoteric Dark Folk band! A TOUSAND WINTERS it is improbable result of the deep mystical experiences embodied in studio work! It's a сonceptual album, with Grand Theme: The story of one part of Europe is extraordinarily like every other part; a thriving pagan culture that at first laughs in derision at the priests of the desert messiah, and then is slowly submerged by the rising tide of christianity until all that remains is folk memory and old tales and songs. The cult of the Nazarene has built many truly awe-inspiring cathedrals from the blood of the people of Europe whilst incorporating and subverting their culture into that of the Blood of the Lamb... We can to tell that on music, it is mystical dark folk with an impurity of a classical English psychedelia of the end 60th or "Psychic TV" pouring "Allegory and Self" / "Trip Reset", probably to draw parallels with early works In Gowan Ring, but these words and comparisons it will be final a little what to describe music of great group! This inexpressible travel one way... Now this album also the important part of history Neo-Folk of music to which we again have possibility to touch... So, ORCHIS again with us and returning begins with "A THOUSAND WINTERS" which we with pride represent in 6 pannel-digiCD with a bronze stamping. [press-release]

2010 Ufa Muzak, UFA40, (ltd. 121)
Martial industrial / Dark Ambient. The mysterious pre-execution rite has been done, no barriers left, only shadow left in this cell forever... Ryr and Transistorwald - preparation for something not coincidental. Borders passed by wanderers in black uniform, they took cover where no living will ever be. The pits are dug out and immersion of symbolical artifacts is finished with vein bloodletting. Sturm music, goes out of line without accompaniment, with the sound of needle cutting a plate. His eyes are covered with soil, but he breathes deeper and stronger than those who go, he believes. Inside the house burnt down just yesterday will pour stranger's guttural speech, a steel knot will be tied in the heart. Befor the taste of lead bullets and ground line riddled with tank dead grids there's a symbol of Ahnenerbe on yellow leaves. Weisthor whispers with fire and moves in a stream, in the place where he is. The earth is covered with ice on fire... A5 cardboard sleeve + insert printed on transparent film. [press-release]

Skullflower -- "Tribulation" -- CD -- €10
2005 Crucial Blast, CBR 55
The new emission from the UK trance-noise legends SKULLFLOWER. A black-void beaming of utterly destroyed drone rock and crushing amplifier obliteration that rains down black ash and punishing blasts of feedback skree on the listener. A dynamic, bleary-eyed meditation. An avalanche of powerdrone that threatens to take your cranium apart and transport your grey matter into filthy new dimensions infested with melodic razor cuts and submerged mantras. A triumphant eruption of apocalyptic meta-metal and radioactive raga swarms, guaranteed to loosen eardrums. This album is one of the heaviest, harshest slabs of guitar armageddon from Matt Bower since the glory days of Total, and bridges the void between the krautrock/celestial free drone influence of the last few Skullflower albums, and the blackened molten death of his Mirag material.

Somnivore & Kivelä -- "Maelström" -- CD-R -- €7
2005 New Old Sentinel, SENTINEL-CDR-03, (ltd. 100)
Free-form dark ambient from Finland that wouldn't be out of place on the Aural Hypnox roster, even if this does have slightly more industrial than purely ambient undertones. The mid-range frequencies require a decent pair of headphones to be fully appreciated and the lack of track markers might initially put one off from sitting down for the full 47 minutes, but Maelström is a finely crafted piece of work that renews its sound palette regularly enough to keep your attention throughout its duration. A great pick for those late-night listening sessions. [Mechanoise Labs]

Symphonic art of the strings, keyboard passages, unhurried percussions plunge you into oppressive ambience of dark dungeons, breathe out coldness of a spellbound forest, hand down shadowy echoes of the dark mass in honor of forgotten Gods. “Meditations about secret of my Dark Destiny. Pt.2” is post-black ambient at its best. Epic, sombre, bewitching… [press-release]

The second album from this UK/Poland-based duo (featuring LTCo’s Richard Johnson and Stuart Carter, also of Fields Of Hay, and both formerly involved with Splintered), following several years since their warmly received 'On Parallel Shores Removed' CD (Fourth Dimension/Tremor Recordings), offering a rich, organic and atmospheric tapestry of ideas that serves as a revitalised statement of intent. Combining genuinely played sitars, violin drones, guitar strums, loops, barely audible mutterings from an otherwise deserted midnight subway, electronic swirl, piano and all manner of otherworldly textures, 'Our Angels Dislocated' remains both focused and complex enough to cast new shadows with every listen. Complete with exclusive artwork by British sculptor, Mo Jupp, it fits perfectly into Lumberton Trading Company's erratic and often changeable grand design. [press-release]

Haus Arafna -- "You" -- LP -- €25
2010 Galakthorrö, Galakthorrö 025, (ltd. 906)
"You" is an album of contrasts and leads the listener along carefully selected levels of suspense through the full gamut of the Arafna-esque art of sound creation. The spectrum extends from dark jewels which permeate nerve and brain, to great boulders which avalanche their way through the intestines. A peculiar hybrid of various Industrial Music styles forming a malicious monster, remarkable for its changeability and the unexpected. Difficult to control, cunningly applied analogue electronics meet sawing Angst-synthesizer ensembles ingeniously accompanying scream, -speech, -distortion vocals to the beat of noise and steel. That has proved itself, but today’s music from Haus Arafna is generally more advanced, more to the point. All probably created just for "You". 12" LP, black vinyl, sturdy cardboard cover, printed inner sleeve and two insert cards incl. all lyrics. [press-release]

All My Faith Lost... -- "In A Sea, In A Lake, In A River .. ...Or In A Teardrop" -- CD -- €10
2002/2009 Infinite Fog Productions, IF-04, (ltd. 1000)
"In a sea, in a lake, in a river ... ... or in a teardrop" was composed and recorded by "all my faith lost .." in its original line-up (Francis, Federico, Viola and Raffaella) as a first full album. The songs included in this album are inspired by spirits and fairies somehow releated to water. There is Grageth-Anoon, a fairy that can be seen near small lakes, there is Argea, that comes out from a river to tell your destiny and Anja, a fairy hidden in a tear. The sound of the album is just more acoustic than recent releases of the band and almost all songs are following the verse/chorus/verse rule. Acoustic and Classic guitars are the main instruments at the base of the compositions, flutes and delicate synths create, then, light arrangements giving that ethereal mood that will be more present in the following releases of the band. The vocal parts are equally divided among the male one (Federico) and the female ones (Viola and Raffaella) creating a perfect balance between heavenly/frail and profound/dark atmospheres. "In a sea, in a lake, in a river ... ... or in a teardrop" is a beatiful travel in the early steps of "all my faith lost ..." music. [press-release]

Anti-Verstand -- "Song Like Wind" -- CD-R -- €7
2007 Abgurd, AB-44, (ltd. 100)
ANTI-VERSTAND - side-project of YAO 91404 D - is pretty known among adorers of Russian Noise due to tapes released by YAOP and a couple of CDR re-releases made by Abgurd and Fight Muzik. With "Song Like Wind" the project introduces absolutely new and fresh point of view on its Art. The first recordings of ANTI-BRAIN were on the verge of boundless madness and unprejudiced aural challenge, while the new album appears to be more expressive, strict and catchy, burning with romantic-totalitarian lunacy of the best works by YAO 91404 D, e.g. "Heroes of the Coal Age" and "Key to Abyss". Love-poetry of soviet-era, disco-songs, accompanied by a captured metal impress, soviet-era variety art, rough and rigid feedbacks, concorporated into percussive ritual noise loops and abrasive distorted tapes emerge monumental piece of art.

Atomine Elektrine -- "Nebulous" -- CD -- €12
2007 Essence Music, ESS007, (ltd. 800)
On this second installment for Essence Music, Peter Andersson brings ATOMINE ELEKTRINE to an utterly refined and perfectionist sphere! The trancey beats and sacral atmosphere of Binomial Fusion are past and widely replaced by a truly out-of-body, deeply layered and dynamic cosmic experience in form of a masterful ambience filled with energy outbursts, synthetic movements and algorithmical rhythms. An aural projection for a detailed exploration of nebulas, black holes, exploding stars and unknown deep corners of the cosmos. Very much influenced by the electronic side of the kraut scene and with the ability of imposing his very own classic trademark, Andersson sets a new stone and makes Nebulous one of the greatest albums related to this genre since the early 70’s. Another amazing proof of talent from this Swedish genius! Presented in an snowy white gatefold digisleeve and tracing paper packaging. [label info]

Bad Sector / Contagious Orgasm -- "Vacuum Pulse" -- CD -- €12
2000 Old Europa Cafe, OECD 032
"...From a mere description, this could end up sounding like every other drone and ambient noise release you own, but the fact is that nothing can account for the sheer depth and richness of the sounds on offer here. Everything has an almost organic quality to it, the drones sounding so liquid and deep that they take on a life of their own, both separate and a part of their generative technology - an otherworldly symbiosis of life and machine that stems directly from science fiction. It is hard to distinguish the two different artists' efforts from one another, as their approaches to sound and composition are so alike, especially when focussed towards this common theme. It is, then, almost the perfect collaboration, each artists' talents serving to enhance the other's and producing a work that is not far removed from their usual output, but that has that elusive X-factor of genius and serendipity that quickly ranks this as a classic of modern music. Nearly indescribable, highly recommended." [Gavin Lees, Immanence Records]

Bad Sector & Tommaso Lisa -- "Reset / Rebis Periferiche" -- CD + book -- €14
2005 Old Europa Cafe, OECD 075
For this release Massimo Magrini was joined by the Italian cyberzone-writer Tommaso Lisa. So the album was recorded as conceptual reference to Tom's "Italian neuro-poems" collection "Rebis". Short spoken fragments of the texts are treated and inserted in a sonic structure built with minimal, strangely sincopated pseudo-rytmhs and sharp pulsing noises. The effect of those spoken texts is really disqieting, a very severe & obscure release different from all previous Bad Sector albums. In the background, Bad Sector's trademark chilling micro-melodies completes an upsetting, allucinated but crude vision of our "Collapsing Civilization". The CD is packed inside a book cover, the book contains Tom's neo-futuristic & cyber-poetry. [label info]

Bleiburg -- "Open Wound" -- DVD-R -- €9

Borisov, Alexey & Nikkilä, Anton -- "Typical Human Beings" -- CD -- €9
2004 N&B Research Digest, NBRD-07
The first duo CD by Borisov & Nikkila is another anti-solipsistic look by these authors at their surroundings past and present. Borisov's Russian texts (translated into English in the CD booklet) scan the panorama of his everyday life, moving rapidly from "a vagabond from Dagestan" to "bio-underpants" and Soviet hospital life to oblique reminiscences of European demi-monde, creating in the process compact psychological snapshots and surreal verbal cascades in which multiple meanings border on complete dissolution. [from the press-release].

Chaos As Shelter -- "Dawn Syndrome" -- CD -- €10
2005 Tophet Prophet, TP005
"Dawn Syndrome" is dedicated to the end of Kali Yuga, the age of iron, which is the final and most negative of four evolutionary Yugic cycles, the end of the world, and the dawn of a new golden age - Satya Yuga (the age of purity). "Dawn Syndrome" is an eight-track composition of ritual dark ambient crafted in the skillful way Chaos as Shelter is known for. The usage of organic and artificial sound sources which has been his trademark. It is a hymn of submersion and rebirth, of confusion, ambiguity and enigma, of the darkest moment before sunrise. [label info]

Cold Fusion - Occupatria - a musical journey on the thin line between urge of freedom and lack of its realisation. 45 minutes of beautiful symphonic Martial music, compared to A Challenge Of Honour, Les Joyaux de la Princesse, with a strong touch of early Dead Can Dance and Graeme Revell's soundtracks!

Cold Fusion -- "Simmetria" -- CD -- €10
2007 War Office Propaganda / Rage In Eden, WOP37
Symmetry perceived as some kind of balance and harmony. Symmetry between surrounding world and its "mirror reflection", which sticks in our minds. Symmetry of left and right side, day and night, birth and death. Symmetry of buildings, objects, bodies. biquitous symmetry. Brand new album of Cold Fusion reflets ist theme - dynamic, marching atmosphere from one side, melancholy and reverie from another. Illusory lack of symmetry or rather its confirmation? 11 tracks, 44.30 minutes comes in nice digipack designed by Michal Karcz. [press-release]

Darkwood -- "Ins Dunkle Land" -- CD -- €14
2009 Heidenvolk, HV12

The album comes with a rougher sound using a lot of drums, completed by industrial patterns, acoustic instruments, and again English and German vocals.

Darkwood -- "Notwendfeuer" -- CD -- €14
Heidenvolk, HV 10
Darkwood proved to be one of the most prolific and outstanding German neofolk bands. This upcoming studio album is certainly the most forceful recording so far. It combines martial acoustic songs and dark folk tunes, using acoustic sources like guitars, classical instruments, organic drums, and distorted basses. The 10 tracks dedicated to Youth & Fire are the perfect soundtrack for Winter Solstice. They shall evoke the burning need for a great change, forcing hands into hands. The standards already high after "Flammende Welt" and "Herbstgewölk" are even set higher now. [press release]

Darkwood -- "Weltenwende" -- CD -- €14
Heidenvolk, HV 09
This forceful acoustic release brings back the 8 vinyl tracks including 5 further re-recordings from the "In the Fields" and "Flammende Welt" period. The album appears as a whole, dealing with Forest not only as the place for Retreat and Consideration (Waldgang) but also as the place for Resistance and Change (Wende). Here, the seeker gathers new strength for his nearly hopeless struggle against new forms of might - and finally prevails. [press-release]

Der Blutharsch -- "Live in Leiden" -- CD -- €14
2010 WKN, WKN 37
Live in Leiden by Der Blutharsch is the 3rd album in a series of live recordings - after "Live at The Monastery" and "Live in Copenhagen". Live in Leiden was recorded at "The Night of Confusion" held September 28th 2oo4 at legendary venue LVC (where already artists like Nico performed) and was the "most cntroversial" concert in the 40 years history of this venue. Nevertheless, this night was a huge success and this recording is a document of this night. At the same time it is the last live recording of the "old" Blutharsch - a small reminder about what Der Blutharsch was dreaded for before they morphed into "era two" and turned into a dark psychedelic kraut monster. This is a great live document of a concert of the thee band who invented "martial industrial" as well as "military pop" - a MUST of all die hard fans of this genre as well as for people who want to know why this band once has been considered "dangerous". The CD comes in a foilblocked digipak. [press-release]

Drakh -- "Bethlehem" -- CD -- €12
2010 Essence Music, ESS014, (ltd. 400)
One third of the cult post-industrial Swedish legends MZ.412, one half of the amazing experimental act Beyond Sensory Experience and Nordvargr’s long running loyal partner on classic endeavors – including the abyssal black ambient duo Nordvargr/Drakh. With such high caliber resume, we are more than honored to present the first DRAKH solo album! While mostly known for his demonic, truly Swedish guitar interventions on the MZ.412 or N/D pitch black ambiences, Bethlehem finds Jonas Aneheim walking through slow, quasi-harmonic, subtle, yet thick drone fields weaving elaborate and unexpected damaged electronic rhythms and harsh, crackling ambient textures that can become – at the same time – both delicate and haunting, warm and freezing, to finally drown in a sea of reverb, glacial riffing and distortion on his own shadowy interpretation of the city of Bethlehem. Simply perfect. Masterfully conceived and recorded on the road during his many world travels over the past years – from the US State of Indiana to Asia –, the album successfully narrates unknown angles from these places via ominous sonic vistas and pallets that truly honor the charming aura and tradition of the bleakest Swedish sounds. Presented in our custom 6-panel digisleeve packaging with stunning and desolate photography by Seldon Hunt. Not coincidentally mastered by no one else than Jouni Ollila (aka Ulvtharm, from the MZ.412 fame) at oLLiLaboratories Studios. [press-release]

Faryus -- "Silence Spells" -- CD-R -- €9
2010 Practising Nature, PN10037
The sound of this album is diverse, because each of the tracks have been recorded over time in different places. Everything developed towards the final idea when I was in Portugal at the end of 2007. I sat on a cliff above the coastline and looked down at the sea. There was almost complete silence after the rainfall, the rush of the waves barely audible from that height. I sat there for a long time and gradually felt my mood alter. I began to hear a stillness, to perceive itas a substance, she whispered to me.. it was like the "Silence Spells". [from the author] A varied album with four highly atmospheric pieces recorded over time in different places by Andrey Sadovnikov, founder of the Faria Records label. Dark synth washes, subtle noises, nature sounds and distant voices create a trance-like soundscape which asks for a careful listening to uncover its secrets. [label info]

Green Army Fraction -- "The Greater & The Lesser Holy War" -- C-35 -- €8
2009 Erratic Sporadicism Tapes, EST.007, (ltd. 199)
Green Army Fraction continues its one-man-strife against the decayed values of the present day society. A-side includes only the title track - seventeen and a half minutes "epic" journey of harsh droning electronics landscapes, junk metal abuse, feedback and constant vocal action spitting disgust towards the modern world. B-side has three shorter tracks connected to the same topic. One pulsating instrumental piece, one in a more industrial vein and one with with almost melodic use of feedback. We'd say together with Caste War full-length, clearly his best work up to date!.. High bias chrome cassette packaged in a green silk screened canvas bag. Comes with four pro-printed fold-out inserts.

His Divine Grace -- "Reverse Aleph" -- CD -- €14
2001 Hau Ruck!, HR!14
A lot of secrets around this band, no information. Even the labels seems to know nothing about this formation.

You may be dead and even then you don't know a thing about this release. Just experience it! [label info]

Hum -- "Inner Navigation" -- CD-R -- €13
2006 Mystery Sea, MS30 (ltd. 100)
Russian sound alchemist Chistov Dmitry of the Moscow region, feeds his aural obsessions with his immediate environment as well as the deep psyche...Letting a certain sense of urban deliquescence & the beauty of ambient decay corrode his compositions, but also probably inspired by the founder & essential fluxes animating Nature, he succeeds in sculpting mantric tones with a very own character and dynamics... These pieces are casted in permeating movements acting like close metaphors of primary pulsions & feelings... To cover their large palette, Dmitry has so far operated under many names denoting different approaches (SPHOGHA, NIGREDO, MIKOSTERION, SMALL TOWN ZOMBIE, & above all HUM...)... Passionate & extremely meticulous, he released most of his works in private editions under his own imprints (SPHOGHA, A DATURA LANDSCAPES...) For Mystery Sea, Dmitry uses his main HUM identity... Hum is a vehicle for making low continuous vibrating sounds often based on a specific sensation explored in its multiple variations... So, "inner navigation" is about what blooms under your skin, that unnameable flow which underlies every breath, a search for isolating impulses & conductions... "inner navigation" is a meandering journey through the layers of Unconsciousness, gradual erosion, stasis, and ultimately loss... going there beyond, at the heart of a reflection itself where a sheer emotion surges, like a sudden enlightening open sky... "inner navigation" is following the unknown river of our masked soul, reaching for supreme acuity... [press-release]

Inade -- "Samadhi State" -- CD -- €14
2006 Loki Foundation, Loki 41
A Japanese edition of collected studio works from the last years, recorded during several sessions and rehearsals at the Light Channel. Remixed, re-constructed and re-edited in 2005. This release was accompaning the Spring Equinoxe concert in Tokyo and is now available outside of Japan as well. "Samadhi State" is illuminating the space of reality and the luminous arcs of dreams. Samadhi is a over-conscious experience that lies beyond waking, dreaming, and deep sleep. The realisation made in Samadhi is numinous realisation. A perfect condition in vigil, a condition of absolute consciousness. It is the final goal of everything and the highest form of self-possession, in the sense of collecting all the faculties of the constitution towards reaching union or quasi-union, long or short in time as the case may be, with the divine-spiritualЕ Life in the spirit is not fading. If the restrictions of the empirical being are exceeded, the universal life is intensified. The life becomes cosmical and even hypercosmical. The Samadhi State is neither guards nor dreams it is the fourth dimension, where the infinite eternity prevails. [press-release]

The Infant Cycle -- "Playout" -- CD-R -- €8
2007 ZHELEZOBETON, ZHB-XI, (ltd. 250)
The Infant Cycle is a project of the Canadian artist Jim DeJong working under this name since 1994. It may seem surprising, but all these 13 years he remained in the underground of experimental music, and his name is well-known only to inveterate enthusiasts and explorers of this strange phenomenon. The project has put out 6 full-length albums on cassettes and CD-Rs, several singles and an amazing series of minions called "Clear Shape" released in ultra-limited editions on transparent vinyls of unusual forms (square, hexagon and triangle). Jim has also recorded a lot of collaboration works with such musicians as Big City Orchestra, Dronaement, Orphx, Aidan Baker, Delphium, etc., some of them were published by his own label The Ceiling... The Infant Cycle's music has never been notable for tensity or ornateness, instead of this it focuses on the subtle aspects of sounding of separate timbres and their combinations. Such textural orientation allows to create a completely peculiar effect, and the seeming minimalism carries into the contemplation of the infinity of possible microsound combinations. In this connection, Jim knows how to get on with both rhythms and drone ambient prostration. Among his favourite instruments are Poly-800, shortwaves, feedback, field recordings and altered vinyl records... Vinyls deserve special mentioning. Jim carved the runout grooves of records and thus created simple and unembellished (yet in some ways, unpredictable) rhythm patterns. Once he decided to start a project severely limiting the sound sources to one carved playout and the operational sounds of his old 4-speed Califone record player. Additional noises were generated by running a razor blade along the platter while it was spinning (the blade at different altitudes, and the platter at different speeds which was picked up by the needle), and the tone arm being vibrated into different tones by a violin bow (amplified via the needle)... An early track (called, fittingly "Playout (Early)") appeared on "Lágrimas De Miedo N°8 - Sund", a compilation CD coming with the eighth issue of France's "Fear Drop" magazine (2001). Two excerpts were also released as a free promotional 5" by The Ceiling to announce the then-upcoming CD release of "Playout" on the American label Merchants Of Sound. But the label soon folded out, and the recording was lying and lying in the bins of The Infant Cycle's archive. And now we are infinitely glad to have an opportunity to present this work to your attention!

Jazkamer -- "Balls The Size Of Texas, Liver The Size Of Brazil" -- CD -- €10
2007 Purple Soil, pulse zero: four
If "diverse" is the very word for JAZKAMER duet (John Hegre + Lasse Marhaug), it also seems to be the best "Balls the Size of Texas, Liver the Size of Brazil’s" description. None of the band’s previous full-length albums were same or similar to each other, so are(n’t) the "Balls". If "Panic" is band’s ultimate blues record, "Balls" are band’s "London Calling", with each song different not only within the album, ranging from harsh noise outburst to calm to dreamy guitar ambiences. But the blues is still in and on with simple artwork, consisting strictly of landscape pictures to underline the album’s misty, dreamy, nostalgic atmospheres. Full length CD, paper fold-out cover. [label info]

Kasyansky, Grundik -- "Floating Point" -- CD-R -- €7
2007 Topheth Prophet, TP011, (ltd. 100)
Grundik Kasyansky plays feedback synthesizer, field recordings, theremin, samples and assemblage and here on 'Floating Point' one Fyodor Makarov plays toy concertina. The music is an 'audio collage based on three works written for dance', all mixed up into one piece, so the relevance of the music for dance is gone, I'd say. In his previous releases Kasyanksy was a man who showed his love for quiet music, with a big role for silence among the silence, and perhaps a soft peep here and there. But on this new release he makes a step forward. It may end out in his usual soft mood, but over the course over the thirty-six minutes that go before that he brings his material alive through a very strong audio collage. Field recordings and feedback, and occasional bang on the toy piano: it makes up quite a strong release. At times I was reminded a bit of Andrew Liles, even when Kasyansky's music sounded at times more fully loaded than Liles. It marks a great step forward for Kasyansky and is by far his best release to date. [Vital Weekly]

'kirchenkampf' -- "Babel" -- 2 CD -- €15
2007 Diophantine Discs, n = 8,9, (ltd. 500)
"Babel" follows the recent and well-received albums "Island of the Dead" (on Cohort) and "Transmissions" (which we released last year). It is an extremely dynamic and dense work that could generally be classified as experimental dark ambient. The theme here is the Tower of Babel and each disc takes a somewhat different yet complimentary approach: the first ("Red Babylon") is generally a rather heavy and intense recording, while the second ("Citadel of the Nevermind") is more droney and dream-like. A profound and monumental journey lasting well over two hours... 'kirchenkampf', the project of John Gore (Cohort Records, The Oratory of Divine Love, >wirewall<), has been active since 1986. Since that time he has released numerous recordings on his own and other labels. Additionally, John has collaborated with a number of others, including Steve Hall (Yen Pox), C. Reider, and Brett Smith (Caul)... The CDs come packaged in a stunning printed gatefold sleeve. [press-release]

Krutogolov, Igor -- "White" -- CD -- €10
2006 Auris Media, aum 10 / Topheth Prophet, TP006, (ltd. 1000)
From Israel comes Igor Krutogolov, who is besides a musician also the designer for Topheth Propeht. Apparently he is mostly known for his 'klezmer core' project Kruzenshtern & Parohod but also a 'toy orchestra' Igor Krutogolov's Karate Band as well as various collaborations he has done with people like Chaos As Shelter, Agnivolok, Bastard Noise, Tidal and Darkwood. For 'White', which comes with a booklet with white pages (funny or arty) he plays bass with bow and strings, voice, keyboards, objects, flute and birds and gets help from somebody playing bells and someone delivering a tape of rain sounds. Divided into seven parts, this is however very much one piece. The musical theme's re-occur in every track, the rain sounds return every now and then. The label compares this is to Colin Potter and Andrew Liles, which, especially in the case of Liles, I can see some parallel. The drone like sounds form the backbone of the piece and with irregular intervals, real instruments are added. Unlike Liles however, Krutogolov doesn't dwell that much of sound effects, and rather uses them in a more natural sounding way. Quite hypnotic and engaging at times, this is surrealist music, with a built in tension that keeps lurking around the corner, and the listener is waiting for something to happen. Wether or not it happens I won't reveal, but it's a pretty strong CD. [FdW, Vital Weekly #560]

Liles, Andrew -- "My Long Accumulating Discontent" -- CD -- €10
2004 Nextera, ERA 2035-2
‘My Long Accumulating Discontent’ is the fourth and certainly the strangest recording from Andrew Liles. This CD is in places more ‘melodic’ than Liles’ previous output and its 17 tracks cover a wide musical territory. Some songs are short and harmonious, other pieces are longer, subtle and contemplative with drifting delicate drones. In places the CD is truly bizarre and defies all conventions. The album doesn’t fit easily into any definable bracket and we feel this oddity belongs in a class all of its own. Traditional English vernacular culture connoisseur Andrew King joins Andrew Liles for one track and Aaron Moore and Nick Mott of Volcano the Bear contribute to several other songs. ‘My Long Accumulating Discontent’ is a distinct and peculiar excursion from the norm.

Mantra, Michael -- "D#m/Gm" -- CD -- €10
2008 Purple Soil, pulse zero: five
The so far unreleased 1998 album. Classical example of static music. Two lengthy ambient tracks, heavy on subtle drones and concrete sounds, descending slowly forwards. [label info] "D#m/Gm is an album of extended ambient listening of sonic icebergs slowly shifting over time. This album is based in ultra minimal atmospheric dronecore, an exploration into the dark unknown of somber sonic states of the mysterious unknown and leveraging changes in states of feeling and states of consciousness. For maximum sonic effect, listening to this CD with stereo headphones is recommended. Do not listen to this album while operating heavy machinery or operating an automobile, motorcycle, marine craft, aircraft of extra terrestial craft. This album is dedicated to world peace for all sentient beings." [sleeve notes]

Moljebka Pvlse -- "dvnkl" -- CD -- €11
2006 Fifth Week, FW003 (ltd. 500)
The 7th full-length album of this Swedish project is recorded by Mathias Josefson in cooperation with Karin Jacobson, who usually sings and plays drums in the band Les Issambres and also takes part in experimental theatre group Kekelejfs. In the hands of Mathias Karin's voice and instrumentation is transformed into a multilayer of sound. Spoken words, singing, sounds of nature, manipulated and twisted, takes us away on a journey. A journey inwards into the mind, cause it's not just any mind, but the mind of someone that is far from alright, someone experiencing the world through multi personalities and trying to make sense of her perceptions, a chaotic mind meeting a chaotic world. But this is far from chaos: the music is done with theatrical precision, carefully directed, performed and executed. This is not an easy listening album, but right from the start it puts a spell on you and you know that you have to listen to it to the end. [label info]

Moljebka Pvlse / Seventeen Migs Of Spring -- "Ravha / Electricity Gardens" -- CD -- €10
2007 Topheth Prophet, TP015, (ltd. 500)
This collaboration album by Moljebka Pvlse (this time as a trio, with Karin Jacobson and Maria Nordin as the extra members) and the Israeli band Seventeen Migs of Spring contains both individual works from each project and a material that has been made together. It starts with Moljebka Pvlse's nearly 27 minutes long Ravha, a soundscape with breeze-sound and crowd noises as its most obvious elements. There's of course lots of other things in the mix as well, such as a violin and "walking in leaves and Styrofoam". What results is a strange, developing sound-art work that defies catgorization. It breaks and changes, yet stays intact at all times. Second in line is the shared work, Calm Gardens (at night), which clearly fuses together the styles of both groups into one whole. It is also the definitely best piece on the album. The solo part of Seventeen Migs of Spring is divided into five tracks, all of the different fro one another, yet existing as a logical procession. Electricity Gardens thus moves forward, track by track, in an increasingly minimalist, increasingly clinical-sounding fashion. There is nevertheless a warm tone and a certain fullness to it. In addition, the structure of even the most minimalist parts is remarkably solid; for example, Alternating Current uses in its squeals patterns that far more typical in harsh noise than in the glitch music it sound-wise resembles. This album is in no way easy to approach or light to listen to. It also becomes more and more difficult and increasingly distant from the listener the further it progresses, that's how weird it gets.. Despite these issues, it is a very fine piece of work, something one can genuinely call "experimental music" in the best sense of the phrase, and something that well combines the legacy of avant-garde to new innovativeness.

Muslimgauze vs. Species Of Fishes -- "s/t" -- CD -- €10
2007 Tourette 003
Bryn [Jones] took 2 different albums of Species of Fishes to create this album. Because this is a remix, we get some different sounds than usual for a Muslimgauze release, which is nice! There are still occasional Arabic voices, and overall this release has a pleasant sound to it overall, not as 'challenging' as some Muslimgauze can be, but there are still spots that make you take hold, like, wow, what an ear piercing first song! This looped whistle gets into your head and makes the world a different place. Dubby sounds on track 2 with the trademark dropouts of Muslimgauze. There are other tracks with sharp sounds, but they aren't distorted like on some other releases - just the sharp without the static. This is a cool release for Muslimgauze. Some are take it or leave it, but this one is worth hearing. [EAR/Rational] Previously released in 1999 on Species Of Fishes (FCD 01). The original tracks from Species Of Fishes albums "Songs Of A Dumb World" and "Trip Trap" were used for this remix project. All remixes, summer/autumn 1998.

Necrophorus -- "Drifting In Motion" -- CD -- €13
2000/2008 Old Europa Cafe, OECD 104
”Arctic ambience, melting with imagination, leads the listener to the frozen tundra at the top of the world. This rarely explored land, resonant with a shimmering radiance that is bleak, barren and mysterious, is distinguished by slivers of fantastical nuances that twinkle like crystals under the midnight sun.” The above quotation was taken from a review of the original CD release of ’Drifting in Motion’ (2000 on Crowd Control Activities). Now, 8 years later it is time for an enhanced re-release for even more refined sound and experience of ’Drifting in Motion’. The entire album has been carefully re-mixed in 2007 and has been spiced with 3 more nuances...

Novy Svet -- "Fin. Finito. Infinito" -- CD -- €14
Nekofutschata, Neko 16
Even within the enigmatic discography of NOVY SVET the album FIN. FINITO. INFINITO takes a special place. The original 12" coming in an edition of 77 copies only offered nothing more than the title in embossed red letters - the rest was all blackness. The group's comments to this major work summed up to complete silence, which opened space for a mass of partly obscure interpretations. For sure this album was conceived as a good-bye, finding a climax in the suicidal title track. Rare example of a cult item coming up to the listener's expectations for the first time on digital format. [label info]

New album of recently reactivated noisician Kirill Stoukalin from Leningrad — you must forget about Saint-Petersburg here for it's pure concrete hash, rusty metal, killing cold humidity and mouldiness of Soviet era city on the banks of Neva. Kirill was a founder of Reductio Ad Absurdum — one of the very first Russian Industrial projects which started in the same time infamous Alexander Lebedev-Frontov did (early 1990s).

2008 Monochrome Vision, (ltd. 150)
Pierre Jolivet has been producing music since 1981. His most recent CD Palestine has been released in 2007 in collaboration with Rapoon. In the Autumn of the same year, he visited Russia with concerts. They were organized in Moscow, St.-Petersbourg and Yaroslavl by Monochrome Vision label, which started the new series of live albums with this one. The concept of "Stif(f)le" is to encompass a space by creating a virtual world based on the use of digital technology. Since my first performance, nearly 25 years ago, progress has been made in creating and controlling the performance in a real time environment. The equipment consists of a single laptop, connected through MIDI to an upper torso exoskeleton and a data projector displaying the visual in sync with the sound feed. Abolishing the instrument liberates the performer as motion sensors on the body facilitate gesture found in dance or in sculpture. The minimalist aspect of the performance makes the spectator closer to an altered state of consciousness, a format used since the early sixties repetitive school of music to include the public as part of the event as a cerebral feedback loop.

Penjaga Insaf -- "Sama Sadja" -- CD -- €14
2010 Power & Steel, PAS 27
For several years Ingo Sauerbrey made extensive travels through Indonesia, always carrying recording equipment to collect sounds as an audio diary. During periodic return trips to Germany, he started to work on the recordings with electronic devices. Some sounds were edited, cut and transformed, while others were kept completely intact. To name a few sound sources only recordings from Water Puppet and Shadow Theatres, Gamelan and various welcoming and fighting dances like Kecak, Jegog and the Tarian Caci were used for this album. Some of those impressive performances were made of 60 to 90 men chanting and dancing while a bamboo orchestra used 4 meter long bamboo sticks playing bass drums on it. SAMA SADJA is waving together the sounds of living traditions, religions and languages with spherical ambient pads and electronically edited drones from the field recordings. This is an contemplative and intimate soundtrack from the deepest heart of South East Asia. [press-release]

Post Scriptvm -- "Marginal Existence" -- CD -- €15
2005 Hermetique, H-CD04, (ltd. 500)
A sound work on its own. An extremely dark one. Some sort of contemplative mirror of a sick society. It is without artifice that this American project hailing from New-York (Brooklyn) unveils us a neat and unhealthy piece of sound work of an incredible intrinsic maturity. A now mad and rabid, now suffocating atmosphere. The thread seems uncertain and lures the listener into a cruel maze with no exit. Here each sound is disembodied, jammed and torn out. Is this reality or is it fiction? On edge. Existence is a painful last resort. A desperate move. In search of one's own body, of one's own destiny. The journey is a dangerous and solitary one. Putrefied flesh, fleshless and revengeful spectres. Clockwork is irremediably running towards its last turn. Paralyzing. Like a trepan, Post-Scriptvm goes deeply into the unutterable side of our mind and of our sensitivity. A journey with no safe return guarantee and a possible dead end as an outlet in a pitiless and disjointed pipe dream like scenery. In the heart of the senses and of the emotion. The search for the past, for history and for existence lies in the fact of digging the earth among rubble and muddy bones in order to rebuild this macabre and moribund puzzle of our human life ad infinitum. A unique masterpiece incarnating an open-heart operative field, a brain surgery of the last chance during which a general anaesthesia is proscribed. Mastered by Jerome Nougaillon (Propergol), it comes in special envelope with inserts and is limited to 500 copies. [label info]

Pugna -- "MOKZYAKZHAGTU" -- DVD-R -- €9
2007 KERPG, KERPG_2, (ltd. 156)
Third official release of Russian necromagic project of militarized and denumanized noise ambient. This time it's an audio/visual release. Visuals represent project's live video consisting of b/w horror of "seat of war" at the sea. Poles played by: submarines, military vessels and their anthropoid riders, their collision and deconstruction as a result of total resistance and dogmatic glorification of enemy's death. Part of the live performance is used too. Particular attention in sound and video is turned to the functional wreck of submarines - b/w interweaving of dirty dreadful view of the sea, vessels and hypnotizing rough bass and at the same time soft and melodic ambient and codified black column of noise. The release leaves obscure, cold and isolationist impression. Everybody is in the compartement of a sinking submarine. Everybody will die. A monument of suffering and Leviathan's power. DVD-r in a sleeve, metal sheet 20x13 cm, riveted sailcloth, 2 cards. [UFA Muzak]

Puissance -- "Let Us Lead" -- CD -- €15
Equilibrium Music, EQM 007
Originaly released on Cold Meat Industry in 1996, "Let Us Lead" stills stands as one of the most impressive and groundbreaking releases in the Industrial/Militaristic fusion that has become so popular recently. Carefuly elaborated overwhelming orchestrations brought to Puissance's Industrial structures a disturbing apocalyptic touch, impregnated with somber beauty and bitter, often polemic, spoken-word speeches. Announced for re-release on various occasions, "Let Us Lead" is finally made available again, with re-mastered sound and an additional bonus track, presented in matte-black deluxe digipak edition, with classy UV spot-varnish finishing [press-release].

Rapoon -- "Obscure Objects of Desire" -- CD -- €14
2008 Vivo Records, vivo2008039CD
This album is about yearning. That aching emptiness that still exists when all rational processes have been exhausted. The unobtainable, all consuming and immaterial. The irrelevant and the irrational. The dark torments and the light hearted banter. The victories and the defeats. The achievements and the failures. The loves and the losses. When all are accounted for there remains only... the obscure objects of desire. [from the author]

RemoteBand -- "Pinche Madre" -- CD-R -- €7
2008 Abgurd, AB-36, (ltd. 100)
Moscow project with a short but rich history. The only person standing behind REMOTEBAND began his experiments with sound as REMOTE and created mindblowing Harsh Noise and some bizarre electroacoustics. In that short period there were some performances with Nikita Golyshev of CD-r. It's a pity but we think there is not a single chance to listen to any recordings from that period though those were really fascinating. In some time the musician became interested in softer kinds of electronic music, changed his name to REMOTEBAND and gave a few concerts in Moscow and Saint-Petersburg charming audiences with Space Drone Ambient/Noise. We offer six tracks from the latest period of REMOTEBAND art. Guitar, voice, analogue synthesizers, lots of effects, various pre-recorded samples. All these means of soundexpression very smoothly, skilfully and gently interlace into thick and rich intellectual Drone Ambient with some noisy touch and futuristic moods. [press-release]

4-trx 30 minutes long 10" is a successor of the last year "Unseen Rituals" CD, but this work is more aggressive, dark, frightening and desperate. Its authentic dark noise melodic soundscapes with voice samples inside create the complex inhuman aura of total degeneration and hate that surrounds a man from birth to death, which is expressed with an irresistible force.

2007 War Office Propaganda / Rage In Eden, WOP44
Despartica is a collection of impressions, situations and moments in life. The particular parallel between lyrics based on old poetry, and all this what happens nowadays, creates often the atmosphere of bitter reflection and irony. Desires, beliefs, dreams, emotions, experiences, beauty of life and sight of inevitable death in 19th and 20th Century poems "framed" in varied music, from strong industrial rhythms to romantic ballads with melancholic recitations and singing.

Seelenthron / Traum'er Leben / Trinithos -- "III" -- CD -- €14
2008 Heimatfolk, HF 02
"III" is a 3-way split album by the classic German NeoFolk bands SEELENTHRON, TRAUM'ER LEBEN and TRINITHOS. On this album each band interprets their favourite songs by the other 2 bands + one own new song by each artist. the finale of "III" is a bonus track by Alexander Meier (Seelenthron) - a fantastic, neoclassical coverversion of a Soulsearch/Sturmpercht song. The 3 bands are well known and highly recommended in the German NeoFolk scene, as they are all fantastic musicians and great live-artists. Seelenthron and Traum'er Leben have already released several outstanding albums, but for Trinithos "III" is the debut-release (beside some very limited CDR releases). The first album by Trinithos comes in early may 2008 on HEIMATFOLK. [press-release]

Seplophobia / Post-Mortem Junkie -- "split" -- CD-R -- €7
Rokot, [RKT-02], (ltd. 76)
Horror Noise masterpiece by two sovereigns of death pulsations, dehydrating distortions and blackened twinkles. Post-Mortem Junkie is a project of horrendous Ryan Oppermann of Redrot, Klinikal Skum, Neuntoter der Plage, Xombie, etc. Previously released as the limited to 50 copies cassette through musicians own labels STOP/EJECT and Skeletone.

Shinjuku Thief -- "Sacred Fury" -- CD -- €10
2005 Fin de Siècle Media, FDS 12
Leaving aside the sheer viciousness of "Black Ice", the delicate abstraction of "Black Frost" and the calm asphyxiation of his "Matte Black" albums, Darrin Verhagen on his latest release re-embraces all the dramatic theatricality his Shinjuku Thief project is best known for. Hovering midway between gothic orchestral horror and contemporary cinematic narrative, "Sacred Fury" presents us with a score from the midst of judgment. Reflective cinematic odes are strafed by brutal sound design, whilst elsewhere, bombastic homages to In Slaughter Natives pound out a march to the apocalypse in 31 beats. This is the quintessential soundtrack for when all your best military plans turn to shit in your hands, and each new oncoming palletload of reason, ideology and faith seems more combustible than the last.

Sol Invictus -- "Lex Talionis" -- CD -- €13
1990/2008 Infinite Fog Productions, IF-03, (ltd. 1001)
A reissue of a legendary album of a legendary band! "Lex Talionis" was first issued in far 1990, and in 1993 reissued on a CD, being sold out for long time for now... This reissue is a collector's digipak version with the new artwork, 8-page booklet and a previously unreleased bonus track Black Easter (live). This is the 1st edition which contains all the lyrics for this album! With this release the world faced the true force of Sol Invictus' music, after that they were bound to become a part of the musical history. In this recording Tony Wakeford was aided by other legendary musicians: Ian Read, Denis Blackham, Karl Blake, Leithana, and even Richard "Dik" Evans (one of the founders of a pop-band U2). It's not necessary to speak about the music on this CD, we can only say that "Lex Talionis" is definitely the most industrial and rough album of Sol Invictus. This may be the best example of combining the acoustic guitar and melancholic vocals with heavy industrial rhythms and almost noisy elements. This edition is limited to 1001 copies, and probably not everyone will be lucky to get a copy. The following words are true concerning this masterpiece: "Everything that could be said about Lex Talionis has been said before you". "The world is full of gods and beasts, Some to serve and some to feast..." - T. Wakeford. [press-release]

Sonne Hagal -- "Nidar" -- mCD -- €12

A blend mixture of fragile, atmospheric to folkish danceble tracks and their known manner, supported by Andreas Ritter (Forseti), Kim Larsen (Of The Wand And The Moon) and Matt Howden (Sieben). [press-release]

Sophia -- "Herbstwerk" -- CD -- €14
2001 Cold Meat Industry, CMI.96
From 2001 comes this long out-of-stock milestone, finally available again, this time in a jewelcase, and without the 3" bonus CDS which was included in the first edition. But no tears, be happy to have it available again! Comparisons for this ARCANA side-project with DER BLUTHARSCH and even IN SLAUGHTER NATIVES are legitimate, as Sophia paint a similar sort of epic frescos. These are the solemn and sonorous melodies belted out by the pipers and drummers while the army retract from a hard day's work at the battlefield, saving the kingdom from legions of infidels… [label info]

Stalnoy Pakt -- "Decima Mas / Il Principo Nero" -- 10" -- €13
2003 Der Angriff Nr. 10 (Prometheus PYRO Delta), (ltd. 400)
The first record of the new Alexander Lebedev-Frontov project named Stalnoy Pakt. Alexander is known for his project Linija Mass, his self-released tapes and Europe made vinyls let him deserve the reputation of one of the most interesting russian industrial artist. Stalnoy Pakt is less futuristic and rhythmic than the previous Linija Mass works, it has more atmospheric sound, but the raw density of noise aggression is still there though it became a kind of a shell for the inner delicate soundscapes, deep and subtle, which lie beyond the harsh constructions. [label info]

Stratvm Terror -- "The Only True Septic Whore" -- CD -- €12
1996/1999 Slaughter Productions, SPCD22

Telepherique -- "Zivilisatose" -- CD -- €10
2009 Diophantine Discs, n = 14, (ltd. 500)
"Zivilisatose" represents the culmination of Telepherique's twenty-year career. Having explored all throughout the realms of industrial, ambient, rhythmic noise, and field recordings, Telepherique has created a distinct sound which manifests itself in new and unique ways on each release. With "Zivilisatose" we are mesmerized by flowing and mysterious ambience, and challenged by unusual rhythms and noises. This, a very personal CD to Telepherique, is also their final full-length recording... Since 1989 Telepherique (and its various side-projects) have released nearly one hundred releases, beginning with many cassettes on their own Drahtfunk-Products label. With subsequent releases on such labels as Ant-Zen, G.R.O.S.S., Noise Museum, SSSM, and Afe, their work received a wide exposure. In addition to solo recordings, they have released numerous collaborations and splits with artists such as Contagious Orgasm, MSBR, Ultra Milkmaids, Brume, Aube, M.B., De Fabriek, and Roger Rotor. "Zivilisatose" also features artwork by TJ Norris... Housed in a custom printed color wallet with 4-panel insert. [press-release]

Tetragor -- "Made in Madness" -- CD-R -- €7
2009 Abgurd, AB-56, (ltd. 100)
TETRAGOR is a siberian project from the city of Kemerovo. In 2005 it recorded Made in Madness which can be described stylistically as mystic Dark Industrial. Archaic symphonies sound from millions miles away, obliterating tread of Time, rigidity of Chaos, primeval essence of heteroaseity. The album brings reminiscences of the early albums released by mighty Cold Meat Industry - ILDFROST, MEMORANDUM, MENTAL DESTRUCTION - with its aesthetics of introvertive religion of Kali-Yuga. [press-release]

Tvmvlvs Seraphim -- "Fortress Ermetica" -- CD -- €11
2005 Beyond Productions, BEY.0533
Dark ambient. A proud, isolationist project offering the listener a symbolic ground for decodification. An historical document, a chronicle on the hermetic, cold emptiness hold in the events of the Second World War. [Total Rust info] Side-project of Sostrah Tinnitus.

Velehentor -- "Bleaching of Penury" -- CD-R -- €7
2009 Rokot, RKT-04, (ltd. 100)

Vetrophonia -- "Simultannostb" -- CD -- €9
2003 Ultra, UCD 019, (ltd. 500)
The experimental outfit of A. Lebedev-Frontov (Linija Mass, Stalnoy Pakt) and N. Soudnick (ZGA), known for its split LP with Magmax - MSBR's Koji Tano side-project. Simultannostь is a very interesting collection of the material recorded between 1999 and 2003. Primitivism, automatism and mechanisticism makes Vetrophonia closely connected to the ideas of the early XX century Russian and Italian Futurism, reminding sometimes of Laibach "Rekapitulacija" with its totalitarian feel, but in general it's more abstract and free-form. Old school industrial at its best. The release is limited to 500 copies and comes in a 9" cover with a special artwork by Alexander Lebedev-Frontov.

Vetrophonia -- "Promzona" -- CD -- €9
2005 Ultra, UCD 22
Brand new album from this legendary orthodox-futuro-industrial project from St. Petersburg. Landscapes of industrial zones, clanks of rusty metal sheets, rings of glass concrete, rumbles of locomotives, roar of fabric pipes and sounds of gramophone from the workshop. Only mind-blowing composition "Protaskivanie Trub" ("Pulling the Pipes") filled with worker's speech samples is worth listening. Vetrophonia doesn't forget about the technological progress too - track "Informatika" tells us about the newest electronic computers working with perforated tapes. Be up to date, listen to Vetrophonia!

Vishuddha Kali -- "Prem Genocide" -- CD -- €9
2002 Ultra Ways 01, (ltd. 300)
The first album of the one-man project from St. Petersburg. Vishuddha Kali is the art of destruction, musical project, consisting of sounds produced by man's mouth only. All the sounds on the given album are only vocal sounds of different trends of breath & speeches, forwarded through a lot of processing & distorters, but still they are the sounds of the voice only. Creative work of Vishuddha Kali is devoted to total genocide that takes place in human society. It's dedicated to humanity's striving for self-liquidation & destruction. Every track is devoted to one of the stages of this destruction. All the texts being gathered together are a small letter addressed to the man, who realizes its place in the nature, who realizes himself as a small not-separated particle of the surprising manifestation of this life. CD comes in oversized foldout cover sealed with a black wax & includes 2 postcards. [label info].

:zoviet*france: -- "Digilogue" -- CD -- €14
1998 Soleilmoon Recordings, SOL 62 CD
“Digilogue”, originally issued in 1996 by Soleilmoon as a limited edition vinyl album, is presented for the first time on compact disc. The music recorded for “Digilogue” examines the subtle and shifting nuances that contrast the Digital and Analog worlds. :zoviet*france: have always professed their fascination with the failings of the technology by which music is produced, recorded, mass-produced and played back, and have frequently adapted the faults that their own machines develop into means of reshaping sound - the basic material with which they work: “All audio equipment distorts sound to some degree and, eventually through mechanical and electrical failure, fucks it up. Since indeterminacy as a compositional parameter has been a constant in our work, this often produces what we regard as interesting new developments. “Digilogue” was recorded using a mixture of failing analogue equipment and high-end digital equipment, and monitored in our studio exclusively on damaged hi-fi speakers. Sound can be as dirty and as clumsy as anything else we perceive with our senses. This is just as true of sound generated in the digital domain, much as we would all like to believe the claims of near-perfection made by audio equipment manufacturers.” Three tracks from original recording sessions are presented for the first time on this compact disc. They were omitted from the original release because there wasn’t space for them... [label info]
