    Limited Edition handmade sleeve with cover album in polaroid format inside eco packaging... When the environment becomes hostile, men must struggle with nature for their survival; but, in the dim light, sheltered from everything, always watching with deference and wonder.

    From the Mouth of the Sun – Hymn Binding

    Housed in a heavy stock, handcrafted 7" x 5" book-style case with download card for the album in high quality format. Edition of 150 copies! ‘Hymn Binding’ is the pair’s third album as From the Mouth of the Sun, and their first for US label, Lost Tribe Sound. The album is teeming with all the soul-stirring character one has come to expect from their work together. The long form crescendos built from Martin’s mournful strings and vast array of acoustic instrumentation are a perfect compliment to Rosenqvist’s delicate piano melodies, humming electronics, and waves of warm static. At the core, From the Mouth of the Sun’s sound is comprised of cello, piano, acoustic guitars, lap steel, banjo, ukulele and pump organ. Yet with ‘Hymn Binding’ they’ve allowed those acoustic sources to change shape, at times turning them into something that more resembles synths or digitally rendered sounds. They do this, not as a means of disguising them, or really wanting them to sound like synths, but to bring out new layers from already existing timbres.

    Alder & Ash – Clutched in the Maw of the World

    Handcrafted 7″x 5″ Case & Glass Mastered CD / Limited to 150 Hand-numbered Editions / Download code 'Clutched in the Maw of the World', the second full-length album from Alder & Ash, is as much maximal as it is minimal. It punctuates periods of barren calm with thunder and screams, before creeping back to the silence and the dusk. The album is comprised entirely of cello. 'Clutched...' combines traditional classical modalities with gnarled, heavily treated modern techniques to devastating affect. Glass, wood, rain, stone and air are all present in the music, from the crystalline notes of the "Merciless Dawn" to the unyielding crashes and lumbering slabs of distorted rhythm of "A Seat Amongst God and His Children." Alder & Ash treads on the experimental fringes of modern classical, perhaps too abrasive to play nice with the coy melodrama of the scene. Yet, the music has enough grit to take hold of lovers of doom, noise, and the like, perhaps winning over new fans of cello music from even the most hardened black metal die-hards.

    Alder & Ash – Psalms for the Sunder

    Handcrafted 7"x 5" Case & Glass Mastered CD / Limited to 150 Hand-numbered Editions / Download code 'Psalms for the Sunder' thrives in opposing extremes. As the title suggests, 'Psalms for the Sunder' is a study of downfall and collapse. The work explores the boundaries, the desolation and despair, among the edges of things come undone. In that tension and space it finds not only cacophony, violence and decay, but also bittersweetness and calm. If all this sounds a bit intense, you may do well to just have a listen or duck out now. As this is not the safe path to Yo-Yo-Ma style laments, gracefully pondering some past love affair. ‘Psalms...’ takes a far more rugged approach, an ugly retelling of the human condition, utilizing the cello not only for its beauty, but also for its aggressively commanding sensibilities.

    Memory Drawings – The Nearest Exit (2 x CD)

    Limited edition 2 x CD edition with bonus 10 track remix album... The Nearest Exit is the third album from Anglo/American collective Memory Drawings. Led by the hammered dulcimer of Minneapolis-based Joel Hanson, the band also features Richard Adams (Hood / The Declining Winter), Sarah Kemp (Brave Timbers), Chris Cole (Movietone / Manyfingers) and Gareth S Brown (Hood). Accompanying The Nearest Exit is a 10-track remix album which functions as a companion piece to the original instrumentals. The band looked far and wide for collaborators and have had their work interpreted by the likes of former The Boats duo The Humblebee, Tape Loop Orchestra, Edward Ka-Spel of The Legendary Pink Dots, Bristol’s Manyfingers, ambient-music pioneer Robert Rich, and London-based kraut-pop groups Astronauts and The Leaf Library.

    Kryshe – March Of The Mysterious

    Four panel, gatefold CD Digipak with clear plastic tray. Printed on the reverse side of the card for that nice textured finish... March Of The Mysterious is a new album by German artist, Kryshe (Christian Grothe). The album stems from music made to accompany a showing of the 1915 silent film, Alice In Wonderland. Straddling the worlds of modern classical, avant-jazz and ambient music, multi-instrumentalist Kryshe plays piano, brass, guitar and percussion with a hefty dose of electronic processing to produce music every bit as enchanting as Lewis Carroll's tale. Live performance is an important aspect of Kryshe's music. Since his last album (Insights for Unperceived Records) followed a more traditional, studio-based approach, Christian was keen to bring some of his techniques from live performances into the studio for March Of The Mysterious. Blurring the lines between composition and improvisation, spontaneity and deliberation, the resultant music feels measured but alive.

    Morgen Wurde – Assassinous Act (Deluxe Version)

    The absurdly appropriate deluxe version is composed of an actual “crime kit”…each of which comes contained in a zippered, textile evidence bag, and is hung and labeled with a hand distressed and numbered toe tag. Every bag contains all that you should need to figure out the parameters of this crime! The actual potential murder weapon in the form of an antique ice pick w/bullet attached (not live ammo), a vintage mug shot and fingerprint card, a copy of an antique fingerprinting magazine, a hand typed out and repurposed evidence envelope with factory pressed “soundtrack” disc inside it, a hand modified blood spatter test card, a mysterious vintage coat check tag with brass key attached, (what’s in the locker?), and other evidentiary objects of interest to anyone trying to figure this crime out! Put this evocative soundtrack on while studying the objects at hand, and see if you can solve this whodunnit!

    Morgen Wurde – Assassinous Act

    Weather patterns around the world are shifting…and although it’s fortunately cooler than usual here in California this summer, tempers are still on the rise, tensions ride high, and criminal intent is always in the air! Our latest release reflects these sentiments…and for TRS072 we are bringing back an artist that we released last year. We are very pleased to re-welcome Morgen Wurde, aka Wolfgang Röttger, and his latest release, Assassinous Act! We had told Wolfgang earlier in the year that we would be doing a “crime release” of sorts in the near future, and he promptly and enthusiastically agreed to compose a fictitious soundtrack for us to this non existent crime that is reflected in the packaging for TRS072. He has done a fantastic job to that effect! Dark and ominous at times…mysterious and reflective at others…the thirteen tracks here take us through the conception of the crime, to the actual acting out of it and beyond, to a final redemption and reckoning of sorts. With his "accomplices", Maria Estrella Aggabao and Georges-Emmanuel Schneider, he has indeed provided us with a fitting soundscape to this release!

    Thet Liturgiske Owäsendet – Wisconsin Mining State

    The Rust Belt refers to a largely-deindustrialized portion of the United States surrounding the Great Lakes. Once a powerhouse of manufacturing, the region is now known for being a poster child of economic decline, and perhaps swinging a presidential election. Thet Liturgiske Owäsende are Swedish experimentalists Linus Schrab and Johan Fotmeijer, and their Wisconsin Mining State release sonically explores the sparseness and melancholy of small towns in this region. In fact, four of the six tracks are titled after mining towns with populations of less than 2000 each. Using synths, guitars, and field recordings, Schrab and Fotmeijer provide drones with mechanical rhythms and pulsing bass, evoking post-industrial soundscapes – a place where the machines have largely shut down, but occasionally fire up for a few minutes at a time. Platteville begins with a slowly repeating drone melody that grows and ebbs with lightly-distorted walls. Hazel Green offers dark ambient atmospherics interspersed with ominous crescendos. Iron Ridge consists of oscillating drones and a sparse, repeating bass line. Klar Piquett features throbbing, distorted walls. Mineral Point, perhaps my favorite track, is dominated by a start/stop mechanical cadence overlaid with varied percussive patterns. Rajah is a more traditional spacious, ambient drone, and somewhat out of place compared to its companion tracks.

    Astrïd & Rachel Grimes – Through the Sparkle

    After years of mail and email back and forth over the ocean, from Nantes to Kentucky, astrïd invited Rachel to come for a residency to make music together and play shows in France. They gathered for a few days, here and there, in 2012 and 2013 to write songs in Cyril and Vanina's home studio in the countryside. The compositions found on Through the Sparkle glow with a unique, connected energy and a pure, instinctive musical understanding. Considered contributions from all sides allow the pieces to unfurl naturally. Each note and phrase feels like it simply couldn’t be placed anywhere else in the album.
