    Alaskan Tapes – You Were Always An Island

    ,

    You Were Always An Island opens with a downpour of rain. Staring out at its constant fall, listeners can only wait for it to stop. The music’s already waiting: for someone, and for a moment that will never arrive…

    Alaskan Tapes aids in the clear-up operation, helping to cleanse the air if not the growing solitude. Quiet drones and sullen strings dispel the rain, but it lingers in the streets, overflowing around the mouth of its gutter. The music has been invaded by a longing which spreads like a tendril of ink in clear water, bruising the atmosphere with its purple, sour colour.

    An event shakes the soul with the magnitude of an earthquake. In this case, the cruelty of distance and the greater cruelty of war which separates a couple. As a man leaves to fight, his beloved has no other choice but to wait for his return. She sends unanswered prayers. His absence grows longer with every sunset. Unable to wait and growing increasingly anxious, she sets off to look for him, a lighthouse offering a faint lifeline in the gathering gloom, only to sadly learn of his death. The separation is permanent – death us do part.

    Nicola Di Croce – Clinamen

    ,

    Heavyweight 12″ vinyl, download + handmade artwork book curated by Caterina Gabelli, ltd. 111 copies…

    The concept of “clinamen” derives from Lucretius’s “On the Nature of the Universe”, and describes the swerve of the atoms from their original straight course. Such deviation generates collisions, and allows changes in the relationship between elements. By using the metaphor of clinamen, the album narrates the process of inventing by diverting from any usual methodology, thus encountering unpredictable solutions. The music combines different commissioned sound works together with field recordings from various mediterranean cities, and the unique timbre of Gabriele Mitelli’s trumpet.

    Gianluca Favaron – Variations (Fragments of Evanescent Memories)

    ,

    CD + handmade cover by Stefano Gentile, ltd. 100 copies…

    Gianluca Favaron (Under the Snow, Zbeen, Ab’she) returns with a new work based on the study of repetition. “Even variation is a form of repetition”: quoting Arnold Schönberg, Favaron has elaborated his concept of repetition by frangling the sound to break it down into infinitesimal parts. Therefore adding a new piece in his discography that represents an essential starting point for new research. In the sound. Of sound.

    , ,

    60 page deluxe artwork-photo book (cm 17×24) + 2xCD, ltd. 100 copies…

    The city has passed through us like a big wave of dust carried by the wind we found ourselves covered by debris, passing skeletons shadows of leaves, passages, spells, voices of pianos from the windows
    memories of places that live in several times ardours and fervours and odours we have immortalized them.
    We have brought the simulacra with us we have watched them from the Estrada Atlantica, from the singing pits of Salento, from the immense Metrosideros of Monserrate with the organ of a church in the Itria Valley, from our home in one year of work the Giardino Forico appeared it behaves like life, it brings
    it appropriates the airs, the colours, the languages and the ways it does not represent it shows its vigour which is our own. The Giardino Forico is a way of giving back a place, a knowledge, a humanity through our languages. It is the result of a vital artistic process, we listen and observe the space and we speak it.

    Moss Covered Technology – And His Many Seas

    ,

    ‘His Many Seas’ is a personal voyage, as the artist’s father was suffering from cancer at the time of the album being written. A well-travelled man, ‘His Many Seas’ sets sail to quietly conquer and navigate another unexplored, painful continent: the frightening landmass of coming to terms with his father’s illness, steering through the trials of life as well as acting as a dedication to his father’s love of travelling. The illness itself heralded the beginnings of a new journey. Recalling the feel of the Arctic Ocean, ‘His Many Seas’ thematically revolves around exploration, and the release includes vintage nautical Nories tables, Elisha Kent Kane – Arctic Exploration inserts along with ‘famous explorer’ double side prints.

    Made by hand,

    Hand made book-bound CD covers (1260 g/qm FSC certified), lined inside / outside with luxury Italian paper from Florence, glass mastered CD (not CDR), vintage nautical Nories tables (circa. 1920) resting inside old glassine bags, vintage Elisha Kane Arctic Exploration inserts (circa. 1869), a collection of 9 x double sided A6 ‘Hassan’s Greatest Explorers’ prints, dried flowers. All rests inside luxury hand cut envelopes. Individually numbered / stamped.

    Ned Milligan – Afternoon Hours

    , ,

    The fragility of life – of all life – is both a blessing and a curse. It can be stolen – unfairly, shockingly – in an instant, and it can flower in a split-second. One breath is all that separates the living from those who have passed. The same is true of music – one note is all that separates the living from those who have gone before; the silent and the resting…

    Made by hand…

    Four variations of beautiful silk-screen / hand made printed-stitched books inspired by traditional Kimono patterns, 2 x mini-CD, 13 vintage prints, entomology study papers (circa.1880), luxury miniature button/string scented envelopes, individually hand numbered.

    Guiseppe Cordaro – 45°12′N 72°54′E

    ,

    Made by hand…

    Hand made book-bound covers (1260 g/qm FSC certified), lined inside with luxury Italian paper from Florence, sealed with washi tape, glass mastered CD (not CDR), antique glass slide (circa. 1910-1955), 5 x embryology prints, insert from antique embryology book, dried lavender, dried herbs, scent. All rests inside stitched glassine bags. Individually numbered / tagged / sealed.

    Made with love…

    Arising out of a womb-like, silent void comes Guiseppe Cordaro’s 45°12′N 72°54′E, blinking into life and exploring the cyclical lineage of a new birth, a recent ending, and the never-ending flow of life’s river. Water both sustains life and erodes it. Like the crumbling and disfigured coastlines, she either laps against the throat or chokes it, providing nourishment or eating away at the body, either satiating a deep thirst and keeping organisms alive or discovering a grisly penchant for murder in death by way of drowning. Barriers barely hold back Cordaro’s roiling waves of modular synth, a thrusting, unstoppable power rolling around in the pit of the music, capable of collapsing sounds, but also capable of reshaping their architecture.

    Leo Takami – Tree of Life

    ,

    Entitled, “Tree Of Life”, these 10 patient, languid tracks take their time in evolving…peaceful and innocent in tone…soft and sensitive in nature…almost not there at times…these gentle sounds are made for those most relaxing moments of the day, when you can lie back, empty your mind, and wind down to these seemingly slowed moments in time.

    Available in one hand made version, in a limited edition of 100 copies. Each of the factory pressed CD’s comes housed in a double pocketed package made from folded sheets of vintage grasscloth wallpaper. The front of each folder has attached to it a hand stamped square of wood veneer, each one unique. The disc in it’s cotton sleeve is folded inside an illustrated page from a vintage book on the timber industry. There is also a beautifully stamped and sewn strand of 7 vintage kanji language learning cards. Imagery of Japanese landscapes and flora and old musical lesson cards are also contained within. And finally…strung from the front of each folder is an antique wooden Hanko signature seal. And it all comes in a forest green, hand stamped envelope.

    Bill Seaman – The Epiphanies

    ,

    The Epiphanies sees Bill Seaman in fine fettle, driving along phosphorescent-lit roads marked by the heavy dew of mystery and slow-to-develop intrigue. Delayed secrets are now only coming to light. The setting sun is the glorious backdrop as The Epiphanies coasts along a deserted road, its dark road-trip music glinting like the lightless, metallic chrome of the car’s body. A pack of coyotes come out to play, and further down the road some lusty, post-jazz musings at a local bar hint at dark dislocations. Nothing is right – the neon sign is too bright and things are a little off-kilter. Reality slips slowly away, like water through the fingers, drained as if from the last bottle of whiskey, until it can’t be grasped at any longer.

    The sick, cloying perfume of cigarette smoke hangs in the air like a tired apparition. The lingering, too-wide smile of a cute bartender with a string of strange tattoos along her back and an old episode of Tiny Toon Adventures (circa 1990) rather than the latest game from the NHL graces the television’s pulpit, adding to the subtle sense of dislocation, and the music only gets darker, its dying light duelling with the fading sunset. The headlights are a lonely splash of colour at two in the morning, and as the music enters the long hours a velvet-smooth carpet of asphalt spreads out before the listener, the unfolding ambient textures helping to shape a smooth, virgin-pure road.

    Dark wet trees and swaying branches are illuminated as the car drives through an eerie, sleeping town, with nothing but a slumping, somnambulant piano strolling up and down the dark, leaf-strewn sidewalk. Distant notes seem to croon into the space, somehow filtering in through the dead radio that needed replacing months ago, luring you into its monochromatic musical world.

    You are the first visitor. You are also the last. There isn’t any other traffic…

    Steven Kemner – Gradation Movements

    ,

    You can’t predict the weather. Sometimes, life throws something at you. When it does – not if but when – hopes and expectations lie like shattered spokes. Is it fate, destiny, or circumstance? No one knows, but paths can change when there’s a sudden shift in the weather, and something that once seemed so sure and stable starts to become the opposite: uncertain and unfair. Promises peter out as a drop of rain appears. You have to stop and change course. A natural disaster plunges normality into desolation, and the same is true of our longed-for futures which so often disappear into the ether. Disappointment ensures: inclement weather. You can’t prepare for it; the hurricane warning arrived too late. Steven Kemner recently went through such a change:

    “I needed to move away from everything that I loved to a place I had no desire to go. This change complicated music, life and a sense of belonging”. – Steven Kemner

    Like the changing of the weather, ironclad clouds can appear from out of nowhere, eclipsing the sun with blackened totality, and the deep, roiling textures within the music of Gradation Movements are full of rain and turmoil, of leaving and moving on. The slow swells and hard-fought movements are indicative of clouded spells which obdurately block out the blue hope of the sky like a cruel shield.

    Coated in sleek silver, the notes shadow the steps of the people below. Rainy season stalks the soul; it doesn’t seem to matter where the notes walk, because the cloud always follows, indiscriminate with its downpours of rain and its trident spears of lightning. Rainfall is needed in order to grow, and that includes us. The rainy spells can make us stronger, helping us to rise up in troubling times…but too much of it, and we drown. The cirrus patterns and the cycling of the wind may be hard to understand – we may never understand – but they still have a purpose. The purpose may seem obscure, but it’s there. There’s a strong energy at work within them, and troubled times often reveal things that, in hindsight, we later come to appreciate. When sunlight fails, the music’s tones lie hidden in a shroud of slow mist. The clouds don’t always disperse. You can’t predict the future – you just have to roll with it until you finally come to terms with the strange weather.

    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.

    Taylor Deupree – Somi

    ,

    The release comes packaged as a deluxe CD inside a 20-page hardbound book of Deupree’s photographs that inspired the creation of the music…

    For the music, made with a small number of instruments (electric piano, glockenspiel, DX7, handheld cassette recorder) Deupree originally set out to create a follow-up to his classic album Stil.. Steeped in subtle repetition and soft electronic sound, Stil. explored themes of time and change. However, Stil. was created with purely electronic means – software synthesizers and looping algorithms which explored the then-novel frontier of DSP based “microsound.” With a strong desire to bring the aesthetics of Stil. to his current way of working Deupree used no software or automatic looping, instead opting for the imperfections of creating “loops” by hand. The result is warm and quietly decayed work of spare, discreet tones and dozens of interwoven slow polyrhythms that create repetitions that constantly fall apart and shuffle themselves back together. While these ideas of phase relationships are not new in music, nor to Deupree’s catalogue of work, it was the way he approached the composing that was different, and more challenging, than his work in the past. Wrapped up warmly in the sonics of cassette players and cheap built-in speakers, Somi’s dusty melodies sit quietly, but uneasily, and question the passing of time and present one of Deupree’s most alluring albums to date.

    'Turns' is an album wrought with vertical forms, heavily cinematic in design and scope. It’s an album built from the earth. With eyes closed, one can easily imagine heavy rusted spires rising and collapsing upon themselves, only to be rebuilt from the rubble in the same instant, ever clawing towards the sky, with the rumblings of massive tectonic plates shifting below. That said, 'Turns' is far more of a cerebral experience than its predecessors. transitioning seamlessly between hypnotic long-form pieces, minimal harp-like ballads and the primal stomping world-builders that have become Seabuckthorn’s calling card.

    Bandcamp digital download code (320MP3, FLAC, WAV, etc.)
    Housed in a 7.5″ x 5.5″ panoramic gatefold case using heavy stock
    Comes with double-sided full lyrics insert

    Over the course of the twelve songs that make up 'New Words for Old Wounds', the latest release from William Ryan Fritch, the listener is given both a scintillating reminder of the immersive, unmistakable sound worlds he created over the last two years and a welcome introduction to an expanded sonic palette and refined craft that points to where his music may go next.

    This parting gift to those that supported his ambitious eleven album subscription series, The Leave Me Sessions merges the colorful orchestration and high drama bombast of 'Heavy' and 'Emptied Animal', the sweeping soundscapes of his finest works for film, and the restrained, nuanced textures of 'Empty' to create its own distinct identity that is both haunting and infectiously exuberant. With guest vocal appearances by DM Stith, Powerdove, and Ceschi, New Words furthers the collaborative spirit found on 'Revisionist' and seamlessly laces each of the artists unique talents into his compositions.

At its most bombastic, the rhythms race and rumble like beating hooves in pursuit. And in its most soaring moments, the music emanates an aura of the surreal grace and power these golden eagles display with reverence, awe and a melancholy of knowing the world they fly over is changing so fast.

    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.

    Orghanon – Retrospectre (Deluxe)

    , ,

    Deluxe version: comes in a modified anti-static bag strung with a 100 year old children’s game tag. Each individual package contains a uniquely mysterious, relabeled antique 5″, 78rpm record (not with music from this album on it, but quite seriously spooky when played at incorrect speeds, as we have found out ourselves), a vintage, mounted 1940’s photograph of a “freak” from an antique album of “freak show” ephemera, with original hand typed description of photo under credit sheet on backside. 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!
