    Hotel Neon – Context

    ,
    Pre-Order: Release Date 01.05.17 Two tone / 4 panel hand made letter-pressed Somerset cotton covers, glass mastered CD, set of ten prints by Nieves Mingueza pressed on luxury 250g gesso card, antique (1890-1940) photograph that has been hand distressed to hold a secret message; hold to the light and all will be revealed! A set of hand numbered vintage negative prints; one black & white photo and one film slide. All of the above rests inside stitched / sealed glassine bags with patchouli scent. In the spirit of honoring the power of contextual cues and lenses on the musical translation process between artist and listener, Hotel Neon set about the task of creating an album as open to context as possible. This is a theme we had previously explored with other projects (i.e. “Forms” by The Sound Of Rescue), but never with so much awareness and personal experience driving the endeavor. “Context” is an intentionally minimal experience and although the intensity of the tracks ebbs and flows, it is equally at home in the background and foreground. This is an album ready to be enjoyed and appreciated in any circumstance or setting, and we await the interpretations. - HN

    Kouhei Matsunaga – Drawings

    , , ,
    Hardbound, cloth bound book with 7" vinyl. Stunning! Kouhei Matsunaga's 'Drawings' is a book and a 7" vinyl record. The book is the first ever major showcase of his drawing skills. Here, smiling horses meet floating people in a strictly minimalist, slightly psychedelic black and white ink world. The hardcover book is cloth bound, 88 pages, 40 drawings, a few words and lots of space. The four track 7" vinyl single accompanying the book, credited to his alias Koyxen Mattsunagnen, takes Matsunaga's music a step further towards a more dance oriented approach, as with his minimal techno project NHK and the recent NHK'Koyxen material released by the PAN label, whilst still clearly and firmly rooted in contemporary, experimental music.

The cotton sleeved, factory pressed disc design is inspired and taken from a scan of one of these strange old records! In essence… a vinyl / CD combo!

    Daydreamer – Camus (Deluxe)

    TRS043 is the feature full length album from Russian duo, Daydreamer. Entitled “Camus”, it is an homage of sorts to the great French existentialist writer of the same name.

The cover photo is printed on sheer Japanese tissue paper, and is hand adhered and shredded… The pages are printed on super heavyweight Moab paper, and are punched, collaged, sewn, stamped, doodled, and in general hand worked as usual. The back of the pages are a spray stenciled daydream of their own! Hanging from the front corner of each booklet is a little capped vial containing most of a Gauloises cigarette… the brand that Camus obsessively smoked until the end… feel free to light it up, listen, and start a daydream of your own! Each booklet comes in a 6″square, spray painted, punched and stamped translucent envelope.

    Glottalstop – Woodsmoke

    , ,
    The record is mastered by Brassica. Available in a limited run of 200 copies, the record features artwork screenprinted across the inner sleeve, and a 2-colour screenprinted card jacket, sewn edges and protected in a heavyweight PVC sleeve. Purchases of the vinyl also come with a free download code… Woodsmoke is the debut release from Glottalstop. Sourced almost entirely from a collection of tape recordings dating back 20 years, the two long-form tracks that make up this LP are an exercise in slowbuild tension, unsettling claustrophobia, and dense textural collage. This distorted tape assemblage is tied together with additional improvised cello and electronics, never standing still, but letting each sound explore its full potential before moving on. In terms of reference points, the record perhaps harks back to the early tape work of Arthur Lipsett, or more recent offerings from Daniel Menche and the unclassifiable output of Akira Rabelais. But really we’re struggling for comparisons. Woodsmoke, like the mysterious building depicted on the artwork, is out on its own, in the middle of the woods, and it’s getting dark…

The collaged and inked and stamped envelope, comes in a hand worked, outer translucent envelope…with a selection of his medieval drawings, a banded CD sleeve made from a page of heraldic crests, and a large double sided insert, complimenting both Master Sorg, and the musicians themselves. Hexameron is a collaborative effort between Richard Moult, and David Colohan… both of whom play with the brilliant neo folk group, United Bible Studies, and each of whom is involved with numerous other projects either on their own, or with others. This is a profoundly and deeply felt imagined soundtrack to the remote places of pagan pilgrimages, early Christian Hermitages, and the wanderings of the ancient wastelands of their unique heritage. This beautiful interplay of piano, electronics, and treated guitar work will take you across these ancient vistas and into the religious wilds of a Europa long gone.

    Atom Eye – The Otolith Sessions

    , , ,
    CD release with a limited edition, 50 page book complete with beautiful images and texts eluding to the recording materials, machinery, processes and personnel. The book also encompasses an audio cookbook with recipes for you to create your own experimental audio loops and soups. The culmination of a year’s worth of sound experiments with machines of a bygone era, The Otolith Sessions sees Elsie Martins ‘Atom Eye’ project realise it’s most ambitious and complete work to date. A meticulously programmed full length as opposed to a collection of tracks the album develops and unfolds with a palpable sense of purpose and adventure over the albums six storied compositions. The visceral nature of the beautiful but abstruse music is no fluke but a deliberate result of the unhurried nature of the albums writing and production process. The Otolith Sessions was mixed & co-produced by James Aparicio (Liars, Spiritualized) and features guest appearances from regular collaborators; award-winning percussionist Pete Lockett (Björk, David Holmes, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Lee Scratch Perry, Primal Scream) and Mute Artist, Composer and Producer Simon Fisher Turner (whose work includes soundtracks for Derek Jarman’s Caravaggio, The Last of England, The Garden and David Lynch-produced Nadja).

    Depatterning – The Huddled Tone (Deluxe 3″ box set)

    , ,
    Each copy of this hand stamped release comes with images from abandoned villages, a vintage Saskatchewan postage stamp and a single, out-of-print Canadian penny predating the second Brian Mulroney term. Housed in a recycled kraft box, all paper has been printed on 100% recycled material… Researching the loss of rural communities with a reissue of Depatterning’s long out of print “The Huddled Tone Eps”. Includes a soundtrack to Elysia Bourne’s film “The Elevator at Parkbeg”, featuring Andrew Lee (In Media Res) and Ronan McGrath (Sxa Ormbjüment). As the urban population of the 20th century grew, the need for small town services declined. Worthless crop prices. Rail line decommissioned. The mine’s closure. Farm consolidation. Land becomes fallow. Town becoming a widow. These recordings trace the remnants of communities that at one time were places of growth and promise.

    Sarah Hughes – Accidents of Matter or of Space

    , ,
    Sarah Hughes’ ‘Accidents of Matter or of Space’ is a limited edition of 100 archival CD-R’s mounted on an 11×14 letterpress score produced by Milkfed Press in Alameda, California. A complementary informational sheet includes credits, track list, and an essay by Dominic Lash. This release brings together a solo zither improvisation recorded in a disused transmission station in mid-Wales with three realizations of the 2011 composition (can never exceed unity), performed by Rhodri Davies, Patrick Farmer, Jane Dickson, Neil Davidson, and Dimitra Lazaridou-Chatzigoga… In what has become an oft-quoted passage, the British composer and improviser Cornelius Cardew wrote that “it is impossible to record with any fidelity a kind of music that is actually derived in some sense from the room in which it is taking place – its shape, acoustical properties, even the view from the windows. What a recording produces is a separate phenomenon, something really much stranger than the playing itself, since what you hear on tape or disc is indeed the same playing, but divorced from its natural context”. This text is usually cited as evidence of the artificiality of recorded improvisation and the superiority of “the real thing”, the live concert happening in real time. I love “the real thing”, but it seems to me that recorded improvised music at its best deliberately exploits the strangeness to which Cardew refers. We are not forced to choose between either experiencing the “natural context” (if one is there in the room when the improvisation is taking place) or having no inkling of it (if one only hears a recording of the improvisation later). Rather the recorded sounds can give greater or lesser hints as to the nature of that context, depending on the way the music is recorded, and the particular sensitivities and sensibilities of each listener. These hints can be accurate or misleading in any degree and any combination, and the activity of the listener’s fantasy in relation to these hints comprises one of the great pleasures of listening to recorded improvised music.

    Jüppala Kaapio – Animalia Corolla

    , ,
    Funky packaging design with this one: Includes screen printed belly bands wrapped around thick green gatefold card that has an inner card which CD rests inside… Love it! Most of us are living in an urban world, dominated by constant noise and contagious stress. Our ears are conditioned by this aggressive environment and have often lost the ability to perceive another discreet world surrounding us. It might be hidden but also swarming, vivid and incredibly musical. We are all able to prick up our ears to some birds chattering together, the wind shaking leaves, toads singing serenades or old spirits telling us their immemorial adventures… Since its creation in 2006, Jüppala Kääpiö has tried to substantiate what they were hearing and feeling from animals, plants or even minerals that they met in their living places in different countries and during travels in different continents. “Animalia Corolla” is a record of feasts of spirits gathered from the whole world. Their songs, dances and conversations about the synchronicity of their dreams have been transcribed in this album. Jüppala Kääpiö is a Swiss and a Japanese duo. They settled in Brussels in Belgium in summer 2011 after staying in Switzerland , Canada, Mongolia and Japan. The life in multicultural/lingual situations naturally gave to their music a style which might be called cosmopolitan folklore music.
