We havn't been idle for the past two months! Just look at our awesome new releases! The new album of the Finnish magician Umpio
"Insektio" sounds like a pack of microphones shoved into an anthill, and it looks just as good. An electroacoustic symphony dedicated to the life of insects through the prism of a noise musician's perception. The release is available on CDs (300 copies) and audio-cassettes with full-body UV-printing (100 copies).
The second release is a commemorative compilation dedicated to the Solar Systo Togathering 2020
festival and particularly to the work of the stage called "Gudelnaya Polyana" (Russian for "Droning Glade"). Three CDs in 6-panel digisleeve, 28 tracks, 3 hours of live recordings straight from the woods of the Karelian Isthmus.

"Insektio" @ bandcamp
Umpio: website | bandcamp
Umpio is the solo project of the Finnish sound explorer Pentti Dassum, a member of numerous bands with incredible stylistic coverage from noise-grind (Romutus) to challenging electroacoustic experiments (SM/DP) and unpredictable brutal noise performed on self-built metal objects.
However there's no junk noise this time – "Insektio" is made from massive oscillations, electronic microsounds and tape manipulations. Like a heavy trip into nature, listen with one ear to the ground, how all the insects work, how temperature shifts affect the resonance of the planet, and how civilizations crumble away as only the frogs and moss will survive...
The physical edition is presented in two versions: a CD limited to 300 copies in a matte 4-panel digisleeve and an audio cassette with full-body UV-print, limited to 100 copies. The digital version is available on bandcamp.

"Gudelnaya Polyana – Solar Systo Togathering 2020" @ bandcamp
Here we have a three-hour long compilation of live recordings, made in September 2020 at Gudelnaya Polyana (Russian for “droning glade”) – the experimental stage of the Solar Systo Togathering festival. The concept of Gudelnaya Polyana is total drone, infinitely diverse, but united in its essence. Every year in any weather dozens of musicians gather in the woods of the Leningrad region to take part in this ritual action, keeping themselves warm with bonfires, hot pu-er tea and kilowatts of sound.
In 2020, we were lucky to record the performances of most artists, and many of them agreed to provide fragments of these recordings for a commemorative compilation. The unity and diversity of droning sound is fully represented here since the festival gathers musicians from different fields: ambient, drone, noise, electronic, academic, and even the ensemble of 12-year-old experimenters made their contribution.
The first disc gently immerses us in the forest thicket, swamps and electrified fogs; the second takes us further into the labyrinths of sound experiments and unlikely consonances; the third begins with the piercing clarity of dawn, which gives way to a calm daytime mood, followed by the coming of night – the deep darkness thickens, we’re riding electromagnetic waves and trying to look beyond human existence…
In order to recapture the atmosphere more precisely, the tracks of 28 artists are smoothly rendered in three hour-long mixes. The artists taking part in this compilation are: AIKO ONLINE feat. KIKIMOTA & ANTON SONDA-JUNGLOV, ANDREW SPRRW & NIKA, AU, DRONE LIBERATION FRONT, EGREGOROS, EVERGREEN DJ, JAGATH, JAM DAZAN, KONTAKT S INOPLANETYANAMI ETO MUZYKA, KRYPTOGEN RUNDFUNK, LUNAR ABYSS, MIRA DREVO, NOISES OF RUSSIA, PETER THEREMIN, PETROGRAD DRONE GATHERING, SACHA RUSH & INSPECTR, SIX DEAD BULGARIANS, SOILCULT, SONOZERO, SVETLO111, SYMPHOCAT, TILE~SHORE, TIM SIX, TREMORKIKIMOR, TRETIY MIR, TUHJADES MAADES, W I I, WALDGRENZE.
The physical edition is presented as a foldout matte-laminated 6-panel digisleeve, limited to 300 hand-numbered copies. Digital version is free to listen and download at bandcamp.

III. New items in mailorder catalogue
CDs & CD-Rs
ABELERESA -- "Sopal Dunnee" -- 9 CD-R BOX -- €30
2021 Zaimka, (ltd. 10)
Noise / Experimental / Free Improvisation. SOPAL DUNNEE - a world of alienation, negativity, loss and bloodshed. Gray bushes and oxygen, which exposes your veins and brain to intoxication, forgetfulness. This world can be multifaceted, of course. Don't look at it lopsided, you can find your new home here. Ash bushes, dreary houses of the VERTEP village, abandoned gardens. Of course, the ruling forests. But it is not them who dominate here, this soil, this herd of worms, a ringing in the ears that frees your cotton wool from the shackles, punches your head with lightning, all this is her, the queen of this world, in whose subordination there are spirits praying and asking you for help. The Queen is not almighty, she cannot keep the border between her kingdom and our world. Sometimes this can be confusing, but the point will be set. Don't bother, why? You can hear the screams, right? Maybe. Listen, they just want your hand, your attention. Also, the queen draws her attention to you, what will come of it? Depends only on her and her crown, dress, world SOPAL DUNNE... I also wanted to say a huge thank you to all those who did not refuse and took their time to record the material on this split. You can find the names of these people as you listen to the playlist (Esmectatons, Jon White and Esmectations, Hevinosis, Zicd, Existência Com Gosto De Nada). Great thanks to you. Your material is beautiful in its own way, it is scary to imagine that it would be without you, because so the picture of SOPAL DUNNEE would look faded. With help all of you, she shone... Box covered with an analog collage interspersed with acrylic, three A4 posters. Each copy is unique. [label info]
BOTZ, YVES & RORO PERROT -- "Saboteur Saboteur" -- CD -- €10
2019 4iB Records, 4iB CD/0619/041 / Decimation Sociale / Nostromo / Poço Discos, Poço 007, (ltd. 300)
Noise / Absurd. This release is somewhat like the sequel to the first collaboration between Roro Perrot (VOMIR) and Yves Botz (DUSTBREEDERS) that was released on tape by Decimation Sociale during the early days of the label. Once again, these two undisputed masters of french coprophony come together to create another release of pandemonium. What we have here is the trademark “shit folk for a shit world”; retarded, inhuman growls against a barrage of out-of-tune six string mayhem, like an uncompromising vomit projectile aimed at all that is polished and clean. Yet, this album manages to combine the usual elements present on previous releases with a few more layers of absurdity. It consists of a single track, sprawling over 45 minutes of object banging, annoying clavier chaos, obtuse de-composition and cavernous no-fi psychosis. The “live” element is distinct, which evokes contemporary urban collapse as much as animalistic reclusion – the bootleg soundtrack to sociopathic acts of sabotage and mongoloid abomination. [label info]
CATHEDRAL NIGHTMARES -- "Scincraeftcan" -- CD-R -- €7
2021 Dödens Kultur, DK№09, (ltd. 34)
Black Ambient. On his second release, a project from the Königsberg (Kaliningrad) underground presents even more versatile and distinctive look at Black Ambient: an abundance of analog synthesizers, sketches of acoustic guitar permeated with medieval melodies, Raw Black Metal cover on the great The Moon Lay Hidden Beneath A Cloud, a magical tribute to Dungeon Synth, diabolical avant-garde performance among ruins and caves - all this united by austere and free spirit of old Europe and the blackest techno magic. "A prophet sleeps in every person, and when it awakens, a little more evil is added to the world." The package is hand-made of artificial leather, cardboard and paper. Each copy is numbered by hand. [label info]
COH -- "Mort Aux Vaches" -- CD -- €12
2003 Mort Aux Vaches, (ltd. 1000)
Glitch / Experimental. Recorded live 15/07/00 at the VPRO studio, broadcasted on VPRO Radio 5 "De Avonden". CD comes in six-panel plastic packaging held together with a metal brad.
CORPUSCLE -- "Untitled" -- CD-R -- €20
2021 Zaimka, (ltd. 10)
Experimental / Drone / Noise. Live recording and tape manipulations from Vitaly Maklakov. Biologically active sound structures. The edition contains CD-R with an individual image on each copy and 5 linocuts signed by the author.
DEUTSCH NEPAL -- "Deflagration Of Hell" -- CD -- €12
1991/1992 Staalplaat, S.T.CD 050
Industrial. The debut album by the Swedish industrial mastermind Lina Baby Doll aka Deutsch Nepal, originally released in 1991 by Sound Source (sub-label of Cold Meat Industry) on cassette and later reissued by Staalplaat on CD.
DJ TORPOR -- "Torporama 2" -- CD-R -- €7
2021 Concrete Noise, C.N.12, (ltd. 50)
Sound Collage / Experimental. Torporama 2 is a cut-up sonic breed made from Japanese 70s & 80s music samples, from Kabuki-Noh theater to City Pop, free improv and jazz funk delights via meditation ambient calmness, early electronic and new wave weirdness. A pastiche of oriental saturation and bliss, dedicated with love. [label info]
DJINN -- "Fuck Vessel" -- CD -- €10
2021 Nekrogoat Heresy Productions, NGHCD16, (ltd. 200)
Dark Ambient / Black Metal. Djinn is the manifestation of the joint efforts of M.T. (K.F.R.) and Old (Old Burial Temple) and “Fuck Vessel” the first conjuration of its dark spectral entity. A well crafted blend of Ambient Atmospheric Black Metal as only masters of their arts can achieve. A dark, dense and agonizing journey into the most cold and visceral side of Black Metal. Originally recorded in 2015, partially in the Parisian catacombs and now available as a limited CD through Nekrogoat Heresy Productions. [label info]
GEKIGA WARLORD -- "Seiichi's Lament" -- CD-R -- €7
2019 self-released, (ltd. 25)
Electro / Industrial / Rhythmic Noise from Portugal. "The wind blew all the ashes that once were flowers and scattered them through the concrete wasteland. A cycle that it's difficult to pinpoint where it ended and where it began. As the wind whispers liberation, as thoughts bring turmoil to one's peace, the shackles shatter and a scream echoes through all the land, turning ashes into magnificent totems of trash."
GRIM MACHINE -- "Heterodoxa / Une Totale Midnight Chamber Music" -- CD-R -- €7
2017/2019 Concrete Noise, C.N.05, (ltd. 20)
Noise / Musique Concrète from Athens, Greece. Grim Machine is Alex M’s project, and the material runs from harsh to mysterious in quick order. One side of Heterodoxa is a studio assemblage, the other side is live and both go all over the place (although the live side’s more monolithic). Metal-edged noise generation gives way to babbling sound poetry, which evolves into musique concrète collaging and so on. Very neat. [The Wire] Reissue of a tape, previously released by the Greek labels E.C.T. / E.D.A. Records in 2017.
THE HAFLER TRIO -- "Whistling About Chickens" -- 2 CD -- €15
2003 Fire Inc., f-10
Drone / Minimal. Whistling About Chickens is the first Hafler Trio release for some years, and consists of recordings made between 1995 and 2001. It’s a double CD packaged in an outsize wallet, with a text-heavy 24-page booklet. Disc one, ‘The whole hog, including the postage’, consists of eleven tracks which vary in length from two to twenty minutes. The prevailing mood is one of stark electronic minimalism, with occasional rhythmic interventions. Several of the pieces begin almost imperceptibly, before introducing activity into the soundfield; but this activity is hardly ever intrusive or aggressive. Instead, phased drone patterns slip and fold into networks of hazy frequencies and layered, undulant feedback... The second disc, which rejoices in the title ‘Arguing with pigs about the quality of oranges’, is even more minimal than the first. Supposedly divided into three tracks, there is only one index point, and it’s impossible to tell where one track ends and the next begins. The drones and frequencies hover uneasily around bell chimes and long periods of silence... [Richard Rees Jones, The Sound Projector]
IAETUN -- "Eitrkvikja" -- CD -- €10
2019/2021 Altare Productions, ALTCD051
Dark Ambient / Medieval / Dungeon Synth. IÆTUN is the side-project of the Swedish musician WAGNER ÖDEGÅRD. This is the CD-reissue of a cassette previously put out by Wagner's own imprint Brugmanziah in 2019.
ILLUSION OF SAFETY -- "Mort Aux Vaches" -- CD -- €12
1999 Mort Aux Vaches, (ltd. 1000)
Experimental / Drone. Recorded on 21/05/1997 for VPRO's 'De Avonden' radio-program. CD comes in a silk-screened sandpaper cover with a metal fastener.
KA-SPEL, EDWARD -- "Lyvv China Doll" -- CD -- €12
1990/1993 Staalplaat, S.T.CD 060
Psychedelic / Experimental. A collection of the studio material from the original "Lyvv China Doll" cassette plus other "experiments" and outtakes. The original intention was a simple live document, but as I compiled the original "Lyvv" cassette that object became obscured. Ultimately only half of the material was live, and it featured much previously unheard work. For the compact disc, only "The Horn Section" is live, while a number of sketches and small pieces have been inserted. Recordings cover the period 1982-1992, so do be patient with the occasional dubious sound quality. [from the author]
KROMESHNA -- "Martyata" -- CD -- €10
2018/2021 Besperech', (ltd. 100)
Ambient / Drone. Album dedicated to the spring flood. When fish go to the fields through channels from the lakes to spawn. You used to sit on a bump with a spear and wait for the slightest splash. The gaze drowns in the arms of the sky and water fused together by the sun. Last year's raspy grass has turned into a brown brew under the surface of the water. The rolls quietly murmur and the wind cut by the grass of marsh bumps. Small spiders, waiting for a new gust of wind, break away from the bog and fly wherever they look. Myriads of transparent threads, saddled by microscopic riders, give birth to bizarre dances that can only be seen here and now. It feels like you've been deaf and numb after spending the whole day in the field. The cheeks are already burning from the sun and wind. Squeaking your wading boots and picking up the catch, you quietly leave... Reissue of a 2018 cassette with bonus track. The first edition was on Ostroga and included 10 cassetes with an original design from watercolor miniatures. Branches and grass from the Trans-Ural fields were put into the body of the cassette. [label info]
LIGHT COLLAPSE -- "Hiding In Plain Sight" -- CD-R -- €7
2021 Operator Produkzion, OPERPRODUKT131, (ltd. 12)
The etalon Harsh Noise Wall, full of indescribable power and primordial drive. One of the best albums in this style, recorded by the Ural project about 10 years ago and released only now. The refined beauty of subtle abstract moments, hiding in plain sight - in the stream of dense noise that rolls over all frequencies. Collectible micro-edition in a hand-made design: corrugated cardboard panels fastened with technical clamps with four black-and-white photograms. [label info]
LITVIN, ARSENY -- "Development Of A Deposit Of Black Mushrooms" -- CD-R -- €7
2021 Operator Produkzion, OPERPRODUKT153, (ltd. 20)
Cold and dark primordial Ritual Industrial from the famous Siberian artist. Cavey resonant sound, raw primitive atmosphere, low-fi electronic noises and viscous mushroom shamanism. Hand-made packaging: hard cardboard sleeve covered with black fabric and hand-painted in silver paint. Some copies use hand-engraved metal foil reinforcement. Each copy is numbered by hand. [label info]
MACHINEFABRIEK -- "Mort Aux Vaches" -- CD -- €12
2008 Mort Aux Vaches, MAV059, (ltd. 500)
Glitch / Drone / Experimental. Produced and recorded for VPRO 'Dwars', Amsterdam 2006. Packaged in 3-panel brown card sleeve with rubber stamped text and pin in the center to hold the CD.
MAJDANEK WALTZ -- "Cold" -- CD EP -- €6
2006/2021 kultFRONT, KF-IV, (ltd. 45)
Neofolk / Dark Ambient. 15 years anniversary ultra-limited reissue of the mini-album "Holod (Cold)" in 4-panel digipaks. The original press-release from 2006: "Cold" is the 4th release of kultFRONT label and the 2nd officially published work of Ryazan-based group MAJDANEK WALTZ. "Silver age dark folk" - that's how this release can be characterized. Live flute and accordion, guitar and bass, accompanied by smooth industrial noises, cast the feeling of transparent melancholy. This is neither light nor dark feeling. More likely it's closer to cosmic coldness, whirling onto the earth surface. Besides MAJDANEK WALTZ this album was prepared with the help of other musicians: ANTHESTERIA (St. Petersburg) and WOLFSBLOOD (Moscow). ANTHESTERIA presented a remix on the track "Everything is going to be in winter way"; WOLFSBLOOD sang on the track "Cold" to the accompaniment of MW. In addition to this album you'll find previously officially unreleased track "Raven" and two thematic photo galleries uncovering the visual constituent of inner life of Majdanek Waltz' musicians.
MAKLAKOV, VITALY & VASILISA MAKLAKOVA -- "The Library of the World Around" -- CD-R -- €10
2021 Zaimka, (ltd. 10)
Field Recordings / Ambient / Experimental. A sound work for a conscious stay at home. Someone examines cracks on the walls of a rented apartment, someone maintains a distance or kicks the knee of another one who's behind his back. In any situation, there is a sense of the image or lack of it... The sandbox is no longer needed and beyond reach anyway, like the docking pins of dried flies and oil quotes. Throwing chorus on the warble of a clay bird or the occasional rustle of a candy wrapper seem to be doing their job, but... How many trains leave outside the window during these three days? Time to get the toy box out from under the couch... Hand-painted cardboard sleeve, unique to each copy. [label info]
MELEK-THA -- "Triumph Of Death" -- 2 CD -- €14
2021 Abhorrent Creation Tapes, ACT003 / Maltkross Productions, CACTMALT01, (ltd. 500)
Ritual Dark Ambient / Martial Industrial. The brand new album from French legend Melek-Tha (aka "Lord Evil" / Ludo Lejeune). A double album featuring 2 hours of occult / black industrial / symphonic music. "...a black mass dedicated to Satan. Deep, possessed, freezing, incomparable!". Features guests: Lamia Culta, Deacon D., Karis, and Nicolas Horváth. Ltd x 500 copies. [Cold Spring]
MELOPHOBIA -- "Ephemera" -- CD-R -- €7
2016/2021 self-released / E.C.T.D., 0001 (ltd. 33)
Experimental / Drone / Glitch from Greece. 99 short tracks ranging from 4 seconds to almost 2 minutes long, altogether making up 1 hour of quite experimental yet contemplative music. The CDR is packed in a handmade green-blue envelope with an insert, sealed with a 60 mm nail.
MICROSPORA -- "Riff" -- CD-R -- €7
2021 Operator Produkzion, OPERPRODUKT155, (ltd. 23)
The new release of the cult St. Petersburg project is a wide kaleidoscope of psychedelic electronics based on experimental combinations and unexpected components. As a result, the Ethno Breakbeat heritage of Muslimgauze and Rapoon acquires the tickling flavor of Acid House, the extensive drone canvas is overgrown with motoric rhythm, and the trippy Ethno Ambient and Psytrance tracks line up around the hard guitar riffs, which gave the name to the album. Hot psychochemical tropical visions, a jungle of rhythms and drones. Hand-made, hand-painted envelope with pasted vintage Soviet guitar picks and a reproduction of a photograph by Valery Rakcheev. [label info]
MONUMENT STRAKHA -- "Requiem for a Dream" -- CD-R -- €10
2021 UltrasomnambulaU, (ltd. 25)
Darkwave. UltrasomnambulaU and Bryanzeva Straße 6/66 present: for the first time in 30 years the new album of MONUMENT STRAKHA (Monument Of Fear) from St. Petersburg, Russia. Recorded in 1999-2020 with the line-up of Alex F., Yara N., Yura K. and Vadim K. Apart from the album, the dics contains the 6-track EP with remixes from CHERVI (WORMS) and a sticker. Limited edition of 25 copies.
MORGEN WURDE -- "Innig" -- CD -- €12
2021 Frozen Light, FZL 078, (ltd. 150)
Dark Ambient / Neoclassical. Dramatic, devastating, romantic mental upheaval – Frozen Light presents “Innig”, the sixth album by Morgen Wurde. Composer Wolfgang Röttger (from Kiel at the Baltic Sea in Germany) creates amazing, grotesque music that zooms deep into souls, magnifying emotions as if perceived through a burning lens. An engulfing ethereal stream of transcendent feelings, making the listener drift through the human condition in slow motion. Cinematic sound masses that aim for intensity and vigorousness, for majestic and threatening ambiguity... In addition to diverse sample sources that were the subject of transformation, two prolific instrumentalists were involved: Alexander Mottok, a proficient musician, conductor of several orchestras, as well as violinist and composer, and Vicente Bueso alias Science Teheran, a great experimenting pianist and composer... A delirious melodious mix of ambient, neoclassical, industrial and ritual music.... Physical edition – 150 copies in 6-folders A5 digipack. [label info]
MUSLIMGAUZE vs CELTARABIA -- "s/t" -- CD -- €13
2021 Aquarellist, aquarel 58-21, (ltd. 300)
Tribal / Experimental. "In the winter of 1996 (Saturday 17th February 1996) World Music band Celtarabia played a sell-out gig at Slaithwaite Civic Hall in West Yorkshire with support from Psychedelic DJ Simon Scott of Tandoori Space Records in Leeds and were joined on stage by Bryn Jones who joined them in their set playing a Darbuka with his painted red hands signifying his support for the Palestinian people. Reggae Producer John Bolloten (The Rootsman) was also there and a great time was had by all on stage and afterwards... At the end of the gig Quentin Budworth gave Bryn Jones and John Bolloten a copy of the band’s first CD ‘The Lost Music of Celtarabia’ with some very interesting results a series of collaborations leading to the recording of The Rootsman Meets Celtarabia ‘Union of Souls’ album with John and the arrival of a mysterious DAT tape in a plain brown envelope sent directly to John Bolloten at the Third Eye Studio of Celtarabia tracks remixed by Bryn Jones directly from the album – extremely gritty and fierce the recordings are direct from Bryn’s Studio and strangely beautiful. Reflecting the bitter reality of life in Palestine far removed from the dreamy orientalism of the original Celtarabia Tracks. The tracks are all remixes of “The Lost Music of Celtarabia” tracks." [Quentin Budworth]
NECRONAUTO PULSAR -- "Weightlessness" -- CD-R -- €6
2021 Glasir CDR Series, 15, (ltd. 30)
Dark, cold, chaotic and noisy Black Industrial project of Alexey Glukhov (Ensemble Of Christ The Savior And Mother Earth). Blackened industrial noise, metallic rumble and a hint of Dark Ambient. Double half-DVD box, 2 discs: one with the album, another is a transparent disc with hand-written info. [YAOP]
PLEROMA ORCHESTRA -- "Priblizheniye (Forthcoming)" -- CD-R -- €6
2019 Kitezh Records, KTZH005, (ltd. 30)
Neofolk / Experimental. Russia gave birth to MAJDANEK WALTZ with its gloomy atmosphere of the Abyss and the commands of the Princes of this World. After some time, a young PLEROMA ORCHESTRA appears in Russia. In short, this is MAJDANEK WALTZ, mired in guitar noise and grave dust, light post-rock ships and Zeitgeiest notes. You will not feel here the raid of the Eternal War or the Howl of Fenrir, this is the roar and whisper of the Graves, from where the dead break out in Totentanz by the force of the virus, and perhaps the Apocrypha of Forthcoming will lead us to the last End of the World. There is also a touch of NEUTRAL with their "Diamonds In Your Hands" that you held, but these Diamonds are Dust that will cover the scraps of grass of the Fountainhead of life. [E:\music\spoken word] The disc is packed in a kraft paper sleeve and contains a double-sided insert.
PLEROMA ORCHESTRA -- "Prisutstvie (Presence)" -- CD-R -- €6
2019 Kitezh Records, KTZH006, (ltd. 30)
Neofolk / Experimental. The music scene in Tomsk is far from being limited to post-punk bands of the new Russian wave. Among other things, the city has a small circle of experimental musicians working in various styles of ambient, drone and noise. One of the representatives of this circle, PLEROMA ORCHESTRA, a side project of the historic city-wide collective SPIRAL VREMENI, recently released a new EP. The release creates a very heavy, oppressive atmosphere, imbued with a sense of withering, a vain search for answers to existential questions and a bitter resignation to the inevitable. According to the group, the EP is the second part of the prelude to the upcoming full-length album. [moisture] The disc is packed in a kraft paper sleeve and contains a double-sided insert.
RAPOON -- "Fallen Gods (Cidar)" -- 2 CD -- €15
1994/2000 Staalplaat, S.T.CD 094
Tribal / Ambient. Second edition of the "Fallen Gods" CD (1994) with the additional CD "Cidar" which was previously available only as a special DAT-cassette for Staalplaat customers.
RAPOON / LORDS OF INFINITY -- split -- CD -- €12
2021 Zoharum, ZOHAR 223-2, (ltd. 500)
Dark Ambient / Experimental. What we have here is almost 70 minutes of beautiful and enchanted music. A great split release between Robin Storey (RAPOON) and Marina Kryzhanovskaya and Mikhail Kiryukhin (LORDS OF INFINITY) hailing from England and Russia respectively. “For this split CD I returned to the origins of processes that had been there in their most fundamental form in Zoviet France. A ritualistic and shamanistic approach to the creation of music. Uncensored by intellect. More spiritual in nature than conceptual. Elemental and primordial. Not that these elements do not exist in my contemporary creation process, more that they are stripped bare in these pieces.” – Rapoon... “Behind Russian ritual ambient and experimental project LOI stand Marina Kryzhanovskaya and Mikhail Kiryukhin - the woman and the man, two eternal souls. The main idea is that life is an immersion to the mystery. The main and essential mystic experience is love and creation. Spiritual invocation awakes delight and horror. We believe that music incarnates pan-unity. But whereof one can't speak, thereof one must be silent. Our split is about the eternal marriage of all that exists, flow of the eternally youthful life energy.” – Lords Of Infinity... The only thing we can add is that artwork for this was also created and provided by the Artists themselves. CD edition of 500 copies comes in 6 panel digipack. [label info]

SENSOR -- "Killing Of" -- CD-R -- €7
2021 self-released, (ltd. 60)
Dark Jazz / Experimental from Portugal. Sensor (Rafael Fernandes, Sigmund Snopek IV, Raul Silva and André Coelho) is a collective of sound improvisation based on the fragmentary debris of some of the marginal musical expressions of the second half of the century (deep roots jazz, industrial metal and alt-rock), crystallized in a precarious and unstable dialogue between instrumental guitar, saxophone, drums and electronics voices... Sensor's music is the result of an essentially performative process supported by the intention of creating a transmissive flow of sounds and images, with the ultimate, and always highly unpredictable, objective of discovering consensual understandings and emotions within the limit of landscapes...

2021 Operator Produkzion, OPERPRODUKT154, (ltd. 26)
Noise. On June 9, 1984, a monstrous tornado swept through the central regions of the European part of Russia, which originated in the area of the city of Ivanovo and was accompanied by the fall of a large hail. Moving along the western suburbs of the regional center and further - to the north of the region, the tornado uprooted and broke trees, destroyed and lifted into the air wooden and panel houses, lifted and overturned cars and wagons, threw aside a 50-ton tank of a water tower, knocked down and knotted a 350-ton railway crane, scattered 70-ton containers within a kilometer radius. According to eyewitnesses, twisted corpses, coffins from graves torn up in cemeteries, cows, horses and cars were flying in the air. 69 dead, 800 wounded, hundreds of destroyed houses, public and industrial buildings and structures became victims of the whirlwind, which swept by in few minutes at a speed of about 100 m/s. The country was swept over by a wave of ominous rumors filled with terrible details, which did not subside for several years, it also anticipated the apocalyptic mood of the yellow press of the perestroika era. In 1986, the novel of the great Russian writer Vasily Belov, "Everything Ahead", the Ivanovo tornado acted as the central event, symbolizing the notorious "wind of change" that had flown in a deadly hurricane, which destroyed and finally dispersed the usual way of life not only in the Soviet Union, but also throughout the world, not excluding the "prosperous" Western countries. A kind of an accompaniment to Belov's novel is the full-length Harsh Field Recording / Rough Noise album by YAO 91404 D, based on processed field recordings of the storm wind and samples from films and broadcasts dedicated to the 1984 Ivanovo disaster. An alarming and destructive clanking black howl in an atmosphere of total and final collapse. Packaged in a hand-made digifile made of fiberboard and kraft paper with a booklet decorated with eight photographs of the Ivanovo tornado and its consequences. A copy of an article from a regional newspaper dedicated to the 25th anniversary of the disaster comes as an insert. [label info]

But every time he burnt himself up he sprang out of the ashes, he got himself born all over again.And it looks like we're doing the same thing, over and over, but we've got one damn thing the Phoenix never had. We know the damn silly thing we just did. We know all the damn silly things we've done for a thousand years, and as long as we know that and always have it around where we can see it, some day we'll stop making the goddam funeral pyres and jumping into the middle of them. We pick up a few more people that remember, every generation." – Ray Bradbury, "Fahrenheit 451". Completely hand-painted cassettes and cases with no additional info.

Dark Ambient. “Transcendental Radiations” is Aural Hypnox label series, a continuation of our previous “Underworld Transmissions” cassette series released between 2013-2015. The noise and light from dark energy that floods the frontiers of understanding and more specifically the mysterious colossal beings, stimuli that silently fire and interpenetrate our sensory receptors are received and processed on tape and film in various seasonally stratified magnetic locations in Finland, Fenno-Scandinavia... The concept of the series is to invite artists from the Helixes collective, in different combinations and under exposure to extremely low frequency magnetic fields to study, conceive and reflect the passing random and rhythmic, static and repetitive electrochemical activity; the neural oscillations and vibrating energy filaments streaming and running silently through the ubiquitous particles at the chosen location at that very moment... By using a variety of techniques, physical and chemical stimulation we amplify and transform the Waves of Power propagating through the universe and synchronize ourselves through ecstatic interaction and intelligence that is in sounds... The cassette is housed inside an oversized, screen printed cardboard covers including two insert cards and an 8-panel booklet. Limited to 94 copies. [label info]

THE COLD SEEDS -- "New Darkness" -- CS -- €7
2020 Perspex Icon, PI-02
Noise Rock / Garage Rock. Griff (Cough Suppressant Alcoholics, Robot Dicks, Pennsylvania Connection, Sollubi/The Disease Concept) is a big fan of homestucking, paying the rent once a year, huge drinking and massacring the neighborhood with his guitar. He’s the best man in these things for more than twenty-five years. Earlier Griff terrorized Philadelphian and then Vancouver fellas with various hardcore punk, sludge and other brown music. Now he cuts out from his strings post-punk/noise rock with crusty country edge, which walk into the air definitely Spanish. We are ok with this – we love crunchy toxic songs about daily disorders, drugs and the Devil... “New Darkness” was recorded about a year ago, when no one knew what he will do during the next half-year of straight sitting on his ass. Congratulations - now everyone has time to think about it. And besides, the musical accompaniment to this process from a long-term veteran of obduracy, grunting and nerdiness. Until they don’t lock you home yet, play this shit, run out and buy cans and tins, comics and all the ammo you need. Only Hell knows, how heavy you’ll press the sofa this time, and how rude the new neighbors will be. [label info]

Harsh Noise from Bangkok, Thailand. "The sounds of liberation which may lead to free the others from their inner confinement."
GELLERIO -- "Ad Astra" -- CS -- €7
2021 Noyade Records
IDM / Ambient. Let’s be honest, a very few people have a boldness to mix-up almost anything from nowadays both functional and abstract electronic music. Without being a game composer. No doubt, the area of game music is full of masterpieces. But how often do you listen these soundtracks themselves, isolated from the game, in its entirety?
Mordovian electronic musician Gellerio doesn't care about all of these conventions. He melts the bass vibe with synthwave effects at ease. Puts a distorted spoken word on the techno-alike rhythm in proportion, within which the first both ignores and complements the second. Swells the trancy percussion into vaporwave field with no sweat. In short, Gellerio behaves as befits an artist who does not see (or even does not know?) any restricting framework. In the hour and half Gellerio is able to lead the listener through those nooks of his experience, that even the hearing one had forgotten to think about. [label info]

MAJDANEK WALTZ -- "Hamlet's Childhood" -- CS -- €9
2007/2021 kultFRONT, KF-VIII, (ltd. 30)
Neofolk. Special cassette reissue of the most important album in Majdanek Waltz' discography, prepared for the double gig of MAJDANEK WALTZ / THE NOKTULIANS which happened on April 23-24, 2021 at "The Place", St. Petersburg, Russia. The original press-release: "Born in "the soul of all Russia" - the city of Ryazan' - musicians of Majdanek Waltz are carried away by the most mysterious, so called Siver Age of Russian poerty and prose. They appeal to decadence and withered roses weaving them into the "heavenly tragedy" of European expressionism. On a dark stage, among silence, appears death... Without time, like a paradoxical-permanent attribute of the eternal in human soul. "Hamleth's Childhood" is the first in last 3 years, new and long-awaited full-length album of Majdanek Waltz. It's name is taken after a poem by Boris Poplavsky, who was called "a distant violin between close balalaikas" by Vladimir Nabokov... The musicians themselves say that this album reveals the band's sound at most. They have used their classical instruments: guitar, bass, bayan (accordion), violin, keyboards and human voices. For the first time here's female voice - of Larisa Archipetskaya - "precticing witch in third generation" - as the musicians say. Guest appearances also include Anthesteria, Misery and Wolfsblood. The new album emphasizes the emotional saturation, it immerses the listener in melancholy and light autumnal sorrow. Fading, freezing cold and the beauty of death. Besides Boris Poplavsky's poems, "Hamlet's Childhood" is based upon the works of mystic symbolists Georg Heim and Maximilian Voloshin." [label info]

OGNEO -- "Ocialist" -- CS BOX -- €14
2021 NEN Records, NEN48, (ltd. 45)
Industrial / Dub. Emptiness is more important than walls, pauses are more important than sounds, in speech it is more important what is not said. Ogneo, brought to us by a stream of demo records, is all about understatements - starting with the anonymity of the participant(s?) - and ending with the title of the album. The melodic elements dwell here as homeless people in industrial abandonment, and the dub beat sneaks around the fringes of vast noisy wastelands. There's a lot of obscurity, a lot of anxiety. But why a set of disguising intricacies? Involvement, deception, kidnapping, alerta! Alerta! Noise curtains are necessary where there is too much talk. An ambush regiment in your pocket comes in handy so you don't get bogged down by the flashing of dusty swag. The good mask protects against tear gas as well as against a virus. Some hints are transparent: Ogneo doesn't say what's under the pavement, but it's obvious that without digging we won't get to the light at the end of the tunnel... One of the label's most elegant and sophisticated physical releases. In addition to the cassette and graphic inlay, the custom box contains a pair of matchboxes. 45 hand-numbered copies. [label info]
ONEIRINE -- "New Void" -- C-60 -- €7
2020 Noyade Records, NR-50
Drone / Noise / Psychedelic Doom Metal. A duo divided between Moscow and Saint-Petersburg (sometimes spontaneously growing up for trio and even quartet), Oneirine usually lives on the crossroads of drone noise, psychedelic metal and (non)free improvisation. By all standards of this team, “New Void” is quite mild work. Here the main staff of this noisy squad lies at very bottom of their powers. Anyway, be right assured: even in this incarnation, they will scratch the walls of your absent soul masterfully. From Thomas Pynchon-inspired “Byron the Bulb” to the final half-hour jam, Oneirine will ask you for all the dark thoughts that come to our minds. Which not everyone can voice to themselves. An excellent album for lying in the dark with blanket pulled up to your nose, and thinking about everything that scares and delights at the same time... Hand-painted black / blue cassettes and full-colour j-card. [label info]
ONEIRINE -- "Pressure Perfect" -- C-90 -- €7
2020 Noyade Records, NR-49
Drone / Noise / Psychedelic Doom Metal. A duo divided between Moscow and Saint-Petersburg (sometimes spontaneously growing up for trio and even quartet), Oneirine usually lives on the crossroads of drone noise, psychedelic metal and (non)free improvisation. "Pressure Perfect" is the brightest studio capture of the project's live actions. A squeezed rage, erupting from every crevice of the used apparatus. The gradually releasing tension of modern life, compressed into an hour and a half of structured ravage. Some people say that it is high time to stop intellectualizing the noise. Maybe so, but it's good that so far no one is going to take away the emotionality of suchlike loud furious sound. As for "Pressure Perfect", it’s one of the best nervous breakdown music you can imagine... Hand-painted black / green cassettes and full-colour j-card. [label info]

SARAF & TERRA TERATOS -- "Bezvremenje" -- CS -- €14
2021 NEN Records, NEN46, (ltd. 45)
Ritual / Folk / Dark Ambient. Someone uttered: «There are five expressions of love: it is the unblinking gaze; the gurgling of alveoli bursting; the iron maiden or boa constrictor rings; strychnine in tea; and the tongue caught in the snare, striving to know clearly what bears eat from snare. But death knows only one expression, and what it is, I will not say, so that readers have reason to investigate on their own»... An experience of independent investigation of this kind is the joint work of the Saraf and Terra Teratos projects. Formally, Безвременье (Russian for Timelessness) is a witch ambient with ethnic motifs, but in content it is a field recording of frantic roundels of wooden brides, audio fixation of those slow processes that take place in houses of abandoned villages, on the borders of overgrown fields and forests, between reality and sleep... In full accordance with the title, the time dimension of this record is reduced (not much happens, happens in a dotted line), but the space of the album — between Ingermanlandian marshes and Voronezh steppes, between rustling and screaming — grows endlessly, absorbing the listener into a long captivity of grasses, roots and dreams... Cassettes are packed in cloth bags with hand-refined A4 posters. Sealed with wax. 45 numbered copies. DL coupon included. [label info]
SKWATS -- "Angst, Lust And Dreams" -- CS -- €7
2021 Perspex Icon
Garage Rock. The Filipino quartet of Skwats doesn't like to toss words and sounds to the wind. They really don't play their music, but squat it. They occupy dusty rooms of post-punk, ironic uncomplicated psychedelia and synth-driven motorik pulses to put them in proper order... "Angst, Lust and Dreams" is an album of catchy melodies and devilish loudness at the same time. It’s could lift even the most plodding man from the couch. Skwats so easily manage to create the feeling of a decent party right in your head that you immediately wonder how these people behave outside the studio and without their instruments. Their music has a completely appropriate sense of fun, which you get into from the very first minutes. And really, what interests every person if not angst, lust and dreams? [label info]

VIR" & GRIGORIY AVRORIN -- "The Black Land" -- CS -- €10
2021 NEN Records, NEN50, (ltd. 45)
Sludge / Drone / Noise. Sad introverted soul crushing tunes. Track titles and lyrics refer to imagery of nature, but the music is soaked with urban longing. What is the clue? Man has taken homes away from beasts and plants, thus he become alone. So the souls of beasts cast out of their bodies rushed into man and built beastly cities in the hearts of people. There's an empty "no" all around, and all we can do is wait for the black earth to cover the whole world to the sounds of daxophone... Sergey Milushkin (Vir) on the creation of the record: «The compositions are based on improvisations and drafts recorded by the Moscow band Vir and the St. Petersburg musician Grigory Avrorin on a June 2018 Saturday at Dobrolet Studio. While drums and bass played monotonous loops, Grigory turned on tape recorders with background drones and made noise with his guitar. At the end of the session the ambient part was recorded on homemade instruments. Then I cut the record into tracks, wrote lyrics, added voice and other instruments. The album was mastered at Pri-zvuk studio using TDK, BASF and Sony tapes in 2020»... Artwork: 6-panel j-card made of thick paper, outer slipcase with "touche cover" lamination, download code.

CHAZEV -- "Katatonia" -- CD -- €10
1986/2020 Narcolepsia, narco095, (ltd. 300)
Industrial / Noise. Obscure solo venture of Heinz Christian Wilp (founder of DER SCHWARZE KANAL, as well as ZU guitarrist and occasional member, as percussionist, of DAS SYNTHETISCHE MISCHGEWEBE), which was active from 1984 to 1987... “Katatonia”, originally put out by italian cult label ADN, is probably the release most people associate with the project, and an absolutely essential document of 80s tape culture that Narcolepsia is very proud to unearth in this new format... Enshrouded in the thick darkness of the postmortem era, this is a classic that contains every element to satisfy worshippers of those inimitable early days: diluted rawness and sinister vibes echoing throughout its entire length, in a spiral hypnotic descent into abyssic primitivism, spawning solemn and archaic rituals exhumed from forbidden regions, a macabre incursion into the saturated hiss of pure negativity. [label info]

HALO MANASH -- "Haudattujen Valvoja" -- CD -- €12
2015 Aural Hypnox / Sublunar Series, [AH15], (ltd. 400)
Dark Ambient / Ritual / Drone. We are proud to present ‘Haudattujen Valvoja’, the new album of Halo Manash through our Sublunar series. The material on the album weaves together the encounters and sacred meetings of the group from the past four years... The sonic-portals or liquid-entrances in ‘Haudattujen Valvoja’ are all authentic live recordings captured on tape with only two microphones in the group’s private Temple Hwaar. These slowly submerging, distant hymns were performed mostly through self-made instrumentation and found Otherworldly Roots and unlike before, all instruments were manipulated live through amps, cabinets and amplified speakers. Compared to the earlier Halo Manash albums, the resurrected resonances in ‘Haudattujen Valvoja’ lean to a more unpolished yet flowing elemental sound. The release of the album closes a greater inner cycle of the group that was initiated over a decade ago; Par-Antra I: VIR... The album consists of seven, otherworldly movements; first three were presented live in Finland, Germany and Russia during 2013 and the remaining four in Austria, Finland, Sweden and USA during 2013 – 2014. The elemental, rhythmical language of ‘Haudattujen Valvoja’ fosters a shimmering yet haunting haze, that guides the perceptive listener far from the domain of conscious and logical mind towards the subliminal realms where the posture of Aqua-Aurorae awaits. Total running time: 71:11... Rough and mesmerizing – Noisy + Harmonious + Drone... The album is enclosed in a customised and silk-screen printed Sublunar series cardboard covers, including an 8-panel booklet and four, two-sided insert cards. The regular edition is limited to 400 copies. [label info]
JARDIN D'USURE -- "Jardin D'Usure Revoit Le Daily-Bul" -- CD -- €7
2009 Waystyx, WR37
Spoken Word / Electroacoustic. The Belgian duo Jardin d'Usure (Marc Moedea and Gabriel Severin) made their first CD in 1994 ("Musique Du Garrot Et De La Ferraille") where there was already a strong interest on so-called literary avant-garde movements, with, for example, some interpretations of dada poems from Raoul Hausmann, Hugo Ball and co. This time the duo is working on seven funny texts from another international avant-garde movement, the Daily-Bul (born at La Louviere at the end of the fifties). These sardonic and insane interpretations of texts from Balthazar, the Piqueray brothers, Pol Bury, etc. are accompanied by some strong electroacoustic pieces in Ultraphonist style (one of their other common projects). [label info] Unconventional cardboard sleeve.
KURBONSHO -- "Vahan Songs" -- CD -- €7
2011 Chernaya Zemlya, CHZ:a, (ltd. 700)
The disc contains unique ethnographic field recordings made by Andrey Komarov (Vishudha Kali), during an expedition to the Pamirs in 2004. One of the goals of this expedition was to study the musical traditions of the Pamir highlands. Here he discovered the most outstanding poet and musician, Kurbonsho. The village in which he lived is a wild place on Vakhania (Afghan gap) with no electricity and extremely difficult access. Although local residents claimed that he was unlikely to agree to sing, Andrey still managed to record his primordial folklore music, which is represented on this disc. Kurbonsho died in 2008. Beautiful lyrical melodies (sung in Devanagari) with smooth transitions and flowing vocals - the music is clear and unprepared for the European organic ear. Ltd x 700 copies in a 20-page A5 digibook. [label info]
MAJDANEK WALTZ -- "Zhuravli (Cranes)" -- 3"CD-R -- €6
2008 KultFront, KF-XI, (ltd. 150)
"Cranes" is a new single from Russian neofolk project Majdanek Waltz, who have previously praised the heavenly manifestations in the concept of WWII. This new release is dedicated to all the soldiers who fought for the freedom of Europe in 1939-1945. After the years the theme of ideological enmity doesn't loose it's topicality, but the band's music sates with wisdom and understanding of fallacy of fratricide. No More Wars Amongst Brothers - says the booklet of "Cranes" from Majdanek Waltz. Faces of loser soldiers as a pole of that dream where beautiful black birds fly... The discs are packed in KultFront traditional cardboard sleeves, tightened by black laces. [label info]

PBK -- "Under my Breath" -- CD -- €7
2009 Waystyx, WR35, (ltd. 500)
"Under my Breath" is the new ambient noise release by Phillip B. Klingler, aka PBK. Collaborating with some of the most brilliant experimental musicians from around the world, PBK has created a work of exceptional depth and complexity. "Under my Breath" is an abstract contemplation on post 9/11 paranoia in the U.S. Most of the album was created in 2004 during the height of the Bush administration crackdown on human rights via the Patriot Act. The resulting album reveals a new vernacular for dark ambient isolationist music and is an important key to understanding PBK's ambitions in the world of sound. Seeking expression through the use of drones, natural or man-made acoustic sounds, digital glitching and turntable noise, the effect is one of surrealistic juxtaposition, not jarring, but totally organic sounding, that can be listened to and savored in an intellectual way. The distinguished guests on this album are Nocturnal Emissions, Wolf Eyes, Brume, Aube, John Wiggins, Tore H. Boe, Artificial Memory Trace, Dale Lloyd and C. Reider. [press-release]. Packed in an unusual cardboard "mirror-sleeve".
