Today two long-awaiting publications will finally see the light of day: a compilation of EPs by the Canadian project The Sand Rays, working in the field of abstract isolationism, and a new mini-album by the Moscow electronic industrial duo Cyclotimia, which continues the anti-utopian line of soundtracks to the existence in the world of global capitalism.
Not so many additions to the distro catalogue this time: several new titles from the Russian labels Operator Produkzion, Dödens Kultur and Garðarsk Uruz, several CDs from the Greek label Eclipsis (and their sub-labels OKO Records and Lalia Records), plus a small assortment of noise tapes and records from various international labels and projects.
The Canadian musician Jim DeJong (ex-The Infant Cycle) continues to splinter and perplex his discography, releasing mini-works under different monikers: The Sand Rays, San Andreas, Sand Ra, etc. And we are making already the second attempt to collect these sprawling entities under a single cover after the CD "Remembered Vol. 1 (EPs gathered together)" in 2017.
This time Jim doesn’t reveal the list of tools that he used, but we know his passion for recycled sounds of shortwave radio, household appliances and malfunctioning electronics. His music is like ghostly monochrome corridors and sound tunnels which often end with sudden turns and dead ends. It is like endless fields of inner calm, woven from reverberations and atonal textures, giving way to mysterious several second-long cuts in which seemingly almost nothing happens. It is like a quiet psychedelic introversion, a contemplation of bitcrushed emptiness, a parallel existence in intangible layers of space.
The glass-mastered CD edition is limited to 100 copies and comes in a 4-panel matte digisleeve. The digital version is available on bandcamp.
More than five years of silence could suggest that the album "The Invisible Hand of Market" released in 2014 was the last sign of life of this Russian project. However, the musicians of the Cyclotimia duo, who consistently create soundtracks for a society of global capital dominance in their works, still have something to say, as it turns out.
The album “Regnum” consists of six tracks (the CD version additionally contains a long-playing bonus track) and lasts for about half an hour. The compositions have a distinctive vibe of “the blessed 80ies” typical for the synthwave genre that has been in fashion in recent years, yet they distinctively go beyond the borders of this predominantly stereotyped style towards rhythmic post-industrial.
"Regnum" comes out in turbulent times. Perhaps it’s no coincidence that the cover shows a man walking on a deserted night street into the unknown? And although the musical atmosphere doesn’t inspire anything optimistic in the end, the opening track with the characteristic name “Battlefield” is apparently intended to set the listener in a combat mood in relation to the future.
The album is released in collaboration with Monopoly Records and Shadowplay Records. The physical edition is presented in two versions: a CD limited to 300 copies in a matte 4-panel digisleeve and an audio cassette limited to 60 copies. The digital version is available on bandcamp.

CDs & CD-Rs
>O< -- "Emerald Leaves" -- CD-R -- €7 2020 Operator Produkzion, OPERPRODUKT151, (ltd. 22)
A beautiful meditative Drone Ambient / Progressive Electronics mini-album, imbued with the breath of spring, gentle breeze and freshness. Bright spring foliage yet not covered with dust sways on branches, emitting an emerald chime, and the movement of juices in the trees resonates with the pulsations of space. An ideal soundtrack for contemplative and psychedelic walks through forests and parks. Handmade and hand-painted cardboard envelope with textile applique in the form of an emerald leave. [label info]
THE CHURCH OF HATE & YAO 91404 D -- "The Harbour Of Abyss" -- CD-R -- €8 2020 Dödens Kultur, DK№01, (ltd. 18)
Experimental / Electroacoustic / Avant-Garde. The collaboration of two Russian post-industrial projects recorded on February 26, 2019 as a live performance without listeners in the harbor area ofVasilyevsky Island, where Northern Europe, covered in snow, opens its jaws to the cold waters of the Baltic Sea and the endless starry blackness of the night sky: the Harbor of Abyss. YAO 91404 D extracts iron staccatos of night factory halls and hospital chambers from the prepared "Red October" piano, The Church Of Hate ingeniously processes them with a chain of analog devices. The result is harsh, unusual, deadly and avant-garde, like a mixture of early Shostakovich and the besieged Kirov Plant. Textile and cardboard handmade digipack, all information is written by hand. [label info]
DADHIKRA -- "Bolotniy Zuy" -- CD-R -- €7 2020 Garðarsk Uruz, URUZ ᚱ, (ltd. 40)
Archaic Garðarsk Pagan Ambient, riddled with mystical signs and sound experiments, full of dense hum breathing, deaf swamp gurgle, bird voices, excerpts from the works of modern classics of northern Russian literature, Vladimir Lichutin and Vasily Belov. The cycle of life and death in family traditions and the energy of the swamp land. Released on CD-R, limited edition of 40 handnumbered copies. Handmade digifile made of wood and vintage paper, all information is written by hand. [label info]
EARZUMBA -- "Bye Bye Butterfly" -- CD-R -- €5 2010 Absurd, absurd#85
Experimental / Plunderphonics. No doubt the current state of the Greek economy is partly responsible for the disappearance of the Absurd label, but not entirely. Maybe it was time to move forward and do something else. Old men do not fade away that easily. In line with their other farewell release, a 7" with butterfly package, this final/last release on Absurd has also a butterfly package for this extended EP/short album by Earzumba, who takes the credit for sampler, piano, bass, guitar, synths, maus (?, mouse, computer??), along with a bunch of guest musicians, on one track. Not that that track sounded particular different than the others, I thought. Earzumba proofs once again that he is a master on the sampler deconstructing all sorts of pop/jazz/rock music and cooking up something that is a hybrid form of things: plunderphonics without the satirical/political/sociological aspects that some of his peers have, especially in the anglo-saxon world. Twelve relatively short tracks, spanning just over twenty five minutes of great pop tunes. Earzumba didn't move yet into the world of radioplays, as I (wrongly) predicted, but alas, he delivers another fine release. [FdW, Vital Weekly]
GUS, LARRY -- "Iasmos" -- CD-R -- €7 2009 OKO Records, OK 01, (ltd. 252)
Experimental / Electronic / Children's. Lovely baby pop electronica with live extracts. Very special package in five folded wagon parts like a train. "Somewhere in the more remote area of Xanthi there is family who treat their two children with unusual birthday gifts, usually specially played recorded CDs. One Larry Gus played some music for the second birthday of Orion (who I saw being baptized, but that's another story), which seems partly based on field recordings of a children's party and, for a larger part, on electronic keyboards, loop devices and a bit of vocals. Eighteen short pieces here of highly improvised music - there is a story about the original master being and it had to be restored or recreated in a short time span, but it sounds quite nice altogether. Childlike, obviously I'd say, intimate and also at times joyous. At thirty two minutes also having the right length for such a thing." [FdW, Vital Weekly]
KANEDA, KIWAKO -- "Cake Of Sea" -- CD -- €5 2007 Eclipsis, #02 / absurd, #60, (ltd. 500)
Acid Folk / Ambient / Children's. Ten beautiful, innocent tracks with the sweet voice of Kiwako. Toy instruments, guitar, piano, electronics etc. "No delay no echo. This is innocent ambience / acid folk with an analog tape sound.
Narrow short range sound in a locked room. It brings you back to childhood memories with simple musical instruments and layers of innocent vocals —it's like angels singing. If you're trying to compare this incomparable song, it's like saying "Does Robert Wyatt make an album with only kid’s voices and cassette MTR?" — "Does Daniel Johnston suddenly wake up making ambient music with only a multi recording cassette MTR?". - Doi Uroco..." Three panel circular cover in two different colours, white and green.
KATSIMERI, LOUKIA -- "Sohos" -- CD-R -- €7 2007 Editions Zero, #12
Ritual / Field Recordings. Following an unexpected rescue in Edition Zero’s archives, we’re now in presence of a peculiar item featuring field recordings by the late Loukia Katsimeri, a member of the Greek experimental movement “Oi Mihanologoi”, who was sadly killed in 1991 at only 28 years of age while bycicling in Paris. It looks like Katsimeri was a natural born traveller, her tape recorder constantly ready to capture local expressions and rituals that she would then utilize within her group. “Sohos” lasts about half an hour and, despite the low quality of some of the tape parts, contains sounds that facilitate states of boisterous stupor. During the carnival, people in Sohos walk or run around the village wearing goat masks and dresses while agitating enormous cowbells; underneath this continuous tolling we also hear wind instruments, whose tone recalls a bagpipe or a zurna, getting mixed with the natives’ voices and laughs. The deriving mayhem is really something to be heard, a never ending clamour which could be associated – at very large – with other hullabaloo-based environmental compositions. Two references come to mind: Hermann Nitsch’s Aktions and Charlemagne Palestine’s “Jamaica Heinekens in Brooklyn”. We’re not on that refined status, but this material deserves to be carefully considered. [Massimo Ricci, Touching Extremes]

VARIOUS ARTISTS -- "Productive Operations. Obscure Tracks From YAOP Circle" -- CD-R -- €7 2020 Operator Produkzion, OPERPRODUKT150, (ltd. 15)
In April 2020 our label celebrates its 15th anniversary, and we decided to make an exceptional release. Firstly, this is a compilation, which Operator has never had before and which is unlikely to repeat. Secondly, the compilation isn't simple: we didn’t make the usual selection of tracks from our artists, which would result in a regular "sampler", but instead decided to make an "esoteric" compilation from the rarest, mostly unpublished records and versions of tracks from the deepest "dungeon" of YAOP and Operator. The "inner circle" of artists, mystery and absurdity from the very bottom of our crucible. Handmade foldout sleeve, minimal edition. [label info] Artists: YAO 91404 D, ANTI-VERSTAND, BELOMOR, TCHERNOBLYAD, DADHIKRA, ADRIVA 91404 D, OLIVIER (of LASKOVOE ECHO).

This is a collaboration between Anla Courtis of Reynols (Argentina) and Lee Stokoe aka Culver (England).

The basis of the record was recorded in the sweltering heat of Buenos Aires by Anla of Reynols and then sent to Culver in the UK for him to mix and overdub his own parts.

ALO GIRL -- "Die Erbin Des Dracula" -- C-20 -- €7 2012 Narcolepsia, narco019, (ltd. 57)
Harsh Noise Wall. “Die Erbin Des Dracula” finds this Italian based HNW project offering up a C20’s worth of pummelling yet atmospherically under-fed walled noise. The release's title translates to “The Heiress Of Dracula” (which was the German title for Jess Franco’s euro sleazy horror classic Vampyros Lesbos), and the cover artwork/inlay suggests late 60’s to early 70’s euro horror b movies... With “Die Erbin Des Dracula” the project perfectly mixers wall intensity with more atmospheric horror fed moodiness. [Musique Machine]

Power Electronics / Noise / Industrial. A project by Kristian Olsson (Alfarmania, H.K.S.O., Blood Ov Thee Christ, etc.). An all-but-forgotten classic (well...). Extremely dirty, lots of junk abuse, recorded on god-knows-what... In the middle of it all sudden bursts of vocals, enmeshed in the general brutality. It sounds like Survival Unit got at least drunk and recorded a tape, and perhaps there are reasons for that. Great stuff from HKSO. Chaos, violence, dåndimpen. [Yrjö-Koskinen]

STELLA, RODGER & SCANT -- "Third Phalanx" -- C-40 -- €8 2016 New Forces, NF039, (ltd. 100)
Industrial / Noise. Something bad is going to happen, tension building, nerves shot. A perfectly realized collaboration between Rodger Stella (Macronympha, One Dark Eye) and Scant. Like all great collaborations this combines the best of both artists and arrives at a totally unique place. Minimal textural studies build to satisfying noise outbursts as each side of this tape builds and builds. Imagine a perfect one-second noise loop stretched out for 40 minutes, subjected to expert manipulation and increasing violence. [label info]

DARK GLASS -- "Cocoon" -- CS -- €8 2019 Eonian Autumn Records
IDM / Glitch / Experimental. Cocoon - a story that tells about the sound and information flows surrounding each city dweller... This album reflects experiments with the distortion of ordinary sound forms, their repeated repetition, the displacement of individual fragments with the addition of subtle noise structures, showing the reflection of the interaction of the ecology of the modern world and the sound environment... This album helps to comprehend the global environmental catastrophe by interweaving thin sound structures into the space surrounding us, which gives the key to understanding the current situation, with the possibility of understanding what we have done and how to fix it.

DEAD BODY COLLECTION -- "The Rostov Ripper" -- С-60 -- €8 2012/2013 Terror, TR-23, (ltd. 53)
Harsh Noise Wall. Rereleasing recent HNW release might seem like quite a weird action, but since the first edition was only 12 copies and the material is truly interesting, it's truly worth it. Material on the tape is not purely static as you could expect from Dead Body Collection. Two sides with half an hour of material on each different approaches to sounds. I think there's no need to talk about A. Chikatilo, who was the main inspiration for this record for it would be difficult to find a person who doesn't know about his crimes. 53 victims and 53 tapes. Instead of numeration you get separate photo with short description of the killing etc. (there are a few sheets without photos since they don't seem to exist). [press-release]
