    Limited Liability Sounds – Surrounding Countryside

    ,
    It was our reading of an American transcendentalist Henry David Thoreau’s Walden, or Life in the Woods that inspired and encouraged us to create Surrounding Countryside. In the narrative the author himself reduces his interest in material economy for the sake of spiritual wealth and by his complete immersion in the world of nature he is able to free himself for study and thought. When not busy with his domestic chores, Thoreau committed himself passionately to observing and recording of the flora and fauna near Concord. He seemed to perceive nature as a fruitful source of excitement. I read Walden when I make my first professional field recordings and sound effects. Surrounding Countryside is an emotional experience I passed through on the outskirts of a big city where I spent a couple of hot summer days recording the world around me as it really is like. Limited Liability Sounds latest enthusiastic response to a fast-changing world of music is a cautious attempt to produce ambient music which is more of a reflection than interpretation of the natural world. I hope this latest record of LLS will be a real treat for all sojourners in civilized life.

    Black Eagle Child – Playing

    ,
    Black Eagle Child is the project of Michael Jantz from Milwaukee Wisconsin. Jantz and Black Eagle Child are in no way unfamiliar names if you’ve been following experimental music over the last 5 years. He has released a number of albums on a slew of great labels over the years (Stunned, Digitalis, Under The Spire, Blackest Rainbow, Space Slave… to name a few). Black Eagle Child’s album titled “Lobelia” and came out on Preservation in 2011 and was met with critical acclaim from Pitchfork among other press outlets. The aptly named ‘Playing’ by Black Eagle Child takes a more playful approach to composition with less focus on the melancholy, while still maintaining some of the nostalgia that comes very naturally and sincerely from Jantz. ‘Playing’ is the perfect soundtrack for spring and summer with it’s circling guitar lines interplaying perfectly over various serene field recordings. A most blissful listening experience.

    Scott Tuma – Hard Again / The River (2 x Vinyl)

    ,
    Souled American got the proverbial shaft. It’s a well-known story, but one that bears repeating. Forming in Chicago in the late 80s, the band released four remarkable albums of howling roots-rock deconstruction before losing their stateside distribution when Rough Trade’s American division went belly up. Anachronistic and difficult to classify, these four albums– Fe, Flubber, Around the Horn, and Sonny (now back in print on tUMULt Records)– were largely ignored at the time of their release, and the situation was not helped by infrequent touring and a lack of press savvy. More recently, the band has toiled in near obscurity, releasing two albums on German labels since the mid-90s. In the end, though, Souled American was probably just too arty for a genre that puts such a high value on “authenticity.” Fortunately, the band seems to prefer its cult status. Of course, it’s hard not thinking about what might have been. The more or less contemporaneous Uncle Tupelo (which eventually split into Wilco and Son Volt) was handed the alt-country banner and basked in the spotlight while Souled American quietly pursued their craft in the darkness. “No Depression”– the movement and the accompanying magazine– could have just as easily been called “Feel Better” (the final track on Fe), if given a slightly different set of circumstances.

    Bruce Langhorne – The Hired Hand

    ,
    In 1969 Langhorne was asked by Peter Fonda to score his directorial debut. He decided to opt out of scoring the film in a projection room, instead chose to shoot the film onto a small black and white camera to take back to his home in Laurel Canyon. He would watch the film and play along to it as his girlfriend at the time would record him and play it back, allowing him to overdub Farfisa Organ, piano, banjo, fiddle, harmonica, recorder, and Appalachian dulcimer onto his Revox reel to reel. Bruce's 1920 Martin guitar is most prominent throughout the record. The Results were a uniquely wide and lonesome soundscape. The closest comparison might be Sandy Bull or possibly John Fahey, but nothing of its kind or even of it's time poses a resemblance to Langhorne's minimal masterpiece.

    Joe Evans – Elemental States

    ,
    As with his previous release on Spectropol (“Septimal” – 2014), with “Elemental States” Evans merges poetic and scientific ideas into compelling music that transcends its extramusical guides. In this case the classical elements are paired with the states of matter and prime numbers, realized with mellow metallic pitch sources and juxtaposed field recordings for the first four tracks, and with synthesis in the fifth. Elemental States is a mostly meditative experience, sonically rich and gently paced, yet full of surprises to the attentive listener.

    Post Global Trio – Clouds

    ,
    Post Global Trio is a project between Toni Dimitrov – electronics, field recordings, contact mic, acoustics, Dimitar Dodovski – electronics, synths and Martin Georgievski – guitar, synths, electronics, piano. Post Global Trio is an experience. An experience that you can feel on the journey through distant lands. Inside or outside thyself. Image of clear and subtle soundscapes and landscapes. Enter into the woods. Leave the city behind the horizon. Forget about it… Now enter more deeply. In thyself. And find yourself. The way you were before you have long forgotten. The project is created as a continuity of communication, collaboration, necessity of developing a certain scene. Sound picture of long-term mutual philosophical meditations.

    Xu – Panpsychism

    ,
    “Panpsychism” is a collection of slightly edited improvisations recorded using guitars, sine wave generator, fx and looper pedals. It is an exploration of the timbrical possibilities of acoustic or electric guitars, in almost no case played in an orthodox way (bowed, prepared, hammered, etc). Reminiscient of Talvihorros this is a 6 track release which varies from the almost noise – then-classic drone of “Blood-streams of existence” to the sinister sounds of “Rise” which wouldn’t be out of place in a horror film, through to the dual centre pieces of “Hive Mind” and “Hive Mind (Reprise), “Panpsychism” is for the lovers of more darker experimental material.

    Yamaoka – Silent Film

    ,
    Yamaoka is the solo project of Kenichi Oka and was formerly a duo with Yoshinori Yamazaki (the name being a fusion of their surnames). They have been releasing music since 1996 but since 2007 it has been Kenichi’s project. Originally a techno outfit these days Yamaoka are pursuing electronic music with a strong synth, loop based sounds with grounding in Ambient and an almost beat-less stripped down version of Techno. Kenichi creates unique loop based tracks made in real time, without use of computers. Controlled by the Roland MC50 sequencer, Kenichi adds a human touch and “life” feel to his tracks. Following on from recent releases such as “Time to Time” on Databloem, “A Baoa Q” on Disq An, Kenichi Oka aka Yamaoka continues to further his pursuit of Electronic Synth based ambient and beat less almost Techno over 9 tracks on “Silent Film”. Subtleties and variance appear on this album from the loop based “Room Number” to the more techno based tracks like “David” and “Nakagawa” to the Aphex Twin like “Tartarus”. Something for those with varied electronic tastes.

    Odawas – Black Harmony

    ,
    'Coming from a period in both our lives where failed marriages, affairs, drug and alcohol abuse and a fatalistic dose of existential dread were leading us into something of a madman’s revelry. The lyrics weave these personal moments in through various fantastic narratives about star-crossed soldiers finding perfection in the desert, Prohibition-era murder and espionage, crime scene investigations in pastoral meadows, and finding soft comfort in the hallucinatory madness of Nebraska. Themes of being lost, betrayal, murder and madness are given candy-coated arrangements of Americana and atmospheric electronics. A spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down, as they say.' - Isaac Edwards (Odawas)

    Grant Evans – Brittle

    ,
    With a detached curiosity, Grant Evans drops us into his petri dish of mud, bacteria, and fetid slop. At first, we have no roadmap to the drowning noise that slowly trickles down the throat and presses against the ear drums; but Evans is no sadist. Yes, volatile coagulations and conflagrations abound with malaise at the beginning to each of the side-long works to Brittle — itself a vibrant landmark in the Evans’ rhizomatic back catalogue that slips through harsh wall noise, kosmische explorations, dronologist collage, and the like. But upon the discharge of that initial shard of tooth and blood, Evans tempers the atmospheric pressures and illumines a path by which to proceed. Beacons of monochord guitar. Radiant dispersions of glare and trill. Compacted bowed metal resonance. Interstitial ecological sounds from water, bird, and tree. Exhumed cassette minimalism. And a gasping, pulsing, morphing drone that bends around each of these sound objects. Such is the vivid unfurling of Brittle — a meticulous and wondrous bricolage of the exploded organic. Parallels to be found in Chalk, Organum,Toniutti, and Grzinich.

    Grace Beneath The Pines – ST

    ,
    The debut eponymous album by Grace Beneath the Pines takes influences from the raw, methodical emotion of such bands as Codeine, The For Carnation and Slint, fused with the lyrical lightness of Low and Piano Magic. Written with three different formations using three different bass players, each adding their own personality, skill, love and passion to the writing process, Grace Beneath the Pines is a musical journey that takes the listener to different places (musically speaking) through an amalgamation of musical styles and rhythms.

    J Butler – Memory

    ,
    Memory is that most elusive thing, so certain at a distance, but once examined up close full of holes and doubt. Memories fade, change, are re-written, morph and elide. At once ungraspable, unknowable and always out of reach they are also an essential part of each of us, and the basis of life as we know it. In Musicophilia: Tales of music and the brain, neurologist and author Oliver Sacks writes: “Every act of perception, is to some degree an act of creation, and every act of memory is to some degree an act of imagination.” This album with its delicate twists and turns, its unexpected returns and re-workings is J Butler’s meditation on the ways we remember. From the slow unfolding of Float, to the hazy repetitions of the title track and the insistent tug of Ephemera this is an album which you won’t forget.

    ,
    Comes in a lovely sleeve with gorgeous illustrations by Grisha and vinyl-like inner sleeve. Limited to 500 copies.... After 9 years of silence, here’s the 11th album from the unclassifiable Brussels-based duo. With their usual tamping drums (just mention the two parts of “The Decision to Exist” or “Same Area”, led by a ferocious 808), a regular bass guitar hammering, some bare minimum poor voices, threatened violins, skinbound flute and oboe here and there, a distorted furious piano everywhere and finally some tiny cautious optimism (the extra-human guitar in “Enough Slaps”). The whole is carefully assembled in order to obtain an accurate picture of life on Earth. “Pain” and “Pleasure” are different aspects of the same mental construction.

For TRS054 we are extremely excited to bring you what is our first re-release.

Originally released in 1991 on the fantastic, Italian Il Museo Immaginario label, this is a wonderfully evocative album of old school, synth infused ethno-ambiance of the highest caliber. A concept album of sorts, it references the ancient Saharan kingdom of the Garamantes, who lived in what is now central Libya. Eerie, melodic, mysterious…please discover the wonder of Garama for yourself after all these years…

    “Inspired by the thick haze of the Ohio summer, Emerald Awakening explores the sonic realms embodied in the incandescent vapor hanging over the Cuyahoga Valley. As the awakening of spring permeates into every corner of the atmosphere, warm pads begin to take shape and form, backed by the gentle rhythm of the valley coming alive once more. Organic melodies layer the cloudy sky, through sun and storm, with a culmination of the gentle transition to autumn.” This album includes two remixes from Coppice Halifax and Shea McGilvray.

    Artificial Memory Trace ‎– Amfibion

    ,
    Amfibion takes the listener into a rich, bizarre and disorienting world, a biological melting pot of the uncanny, the bewildering and the awe inspiring. Comprised of treated field recordings of frogs taken during excursions in the Brazilian Amazon from 2007 to 2011, Amfibion is largely based on mating songs, and Artificial Memory Trace treats them in a manner which underlines the humid fecundity of this ecological wonderland. These pieces froth and foam, drip and slide from crashing crescendo to an eerie throb in the blink of an eye. There are croaks, shimmers, pulses and drones, sounds come together suddenly, and end just as abruptly. The sound world of Amfibion is a complex one, a place where life, death and reproduction intermingle like frog calls in the night, without beginning, or end. An unforgettable journey.

    Arash Akbari – Vanishing Point

    ,
    Iran’s Arash Akbari’s Vanishing Point nestles into inbetween places, revelling in the indistinct, the delicate and the mysterious. Bringing together field recordings taken from northern Iran, guitar and electronics, this is a late night album, an album which soothes, a set of sounds to think to. This is an album which lingers in the margins of consciousness, it conjures images gently, caresses them and ever so slowly lets them fade from view. With last year’s heralded Cracked Echoes on the excellent French label Soft Akbari established himself as an emerging talent within the ambient scene. With Vanishing Points he cements his reputation as one of the genre’s most exciting new talents.

    Corder Ritger Yantis – Possession

    ,
    Three sonic heavyweights have come together to compose the dark drone beauty Possession. Released in time for Valentine’s Day, this EP has no easy endings, only endless destructive cycles played out in a ruined universe. Inspired from the minds of US-based musicians Jason Corder (offthesky), Cody Yantis and Carl Ritger (Radere), they have birthed a doom drone space centric scape of obsession, madness and despair. From the gripping unfolding of the opening track Ascension, to the mind travel of A Viscous Tear and the majestic denouement of the 20 minute closing piece Wrath to Wraith, Possession will hold you in its chilly grip to the very end.

    Born out of a collaboration stretching from Vancouver to Athens, A Changing Light centres on change, dislocation and uncertainty. From different time zones, and very different cities Valiska (Krzysztof Sujata) and Zenjungle (Phil Gardelis) have carved out an album which celebrates change, nuance and noise. ”We hope that the listener will be as uncertain about where they will find themselves from track to track as the image that we had in our minds,” the pair explain. From the gorgeously gritty Derive to Gardelis’ blissful sax work on Nightwinds this is a special collaboration.

    Specta Ciera – Overwintering

    ,
    Overwintering was inspired by watching animals leave Boston. As the weather turned cold it also became a lot quieter. As Devin Underwood, who releases as Specta Ciera explains: “Birds leaving the area for warmer climates created a sense of abandonment and isolation, the lack of song birds, buzzing and chirping of insects changed the atmosphere of my surroundings entirely. With “Overwintering” I wanted to try and harness those feelings of the deepest, coldest moments of winter as the first snows settle in and slowly with it, the deep freeze develops.”

    Ross Baker – Two Suns Were Visible…

    ,
    Inspired by vast empty spaces from military training sites to churches, Two Suns Were Visible in the Sky presents a vast panorama filled with joyous signs of life. From the opening sweep of ‘International Debris’ to the melancholic tones of the all too brief ‘Some Early Hour’ and the wistful ‘Farewell, Swifts’ this is album full of emotion. Baker said he was inspired by the emptiness of abandoned spaces because he felt they were so desolate you could almost see the sun rise again before it had set. With ‘Two Suns’ Baker might just have succeeded in bringing some extra light into all our skies.

    Tiny Leaves – A Certain Tide

    ,
    Over a misty weekend in winter, composer Joel Pike aka Tiny Leaves, gathered a few of his favourite musicians deep in the Shropshire countryside. Together they laid down A Certain Tide, the anticipated second full length album from Tiny Leaves. The album captures a special moment in time, recorded over a few hidden days. It was here that the tracks were played live for the first time and the resulting recording carries a hopeful, fresh and intimate sound. The album became a whole, threaded through piece by piece, making it play almost as one long song. Pike says “A Certain Tide explores the meeting of the sacred and the ordinary, it speaks of hope in the turbulence, tells of the dance of the beautiful within the simple.” Building on the success of his debut album, he has created a work which feels much bigger in scope, size and feeling. From Pike’s minimal duets to fuller ensembles, A Certain Tide promises to engulf the listener in a deluge of heavenly song.

    thisquietarmy – Anthems for Catharsis (CD)

    ,
    Anthems for Catharsis marks the follow up to thisquietarmy’s last full length studio works “Rebirths”, a representative collection of reworked tracks that have defined his purgative live performances. Between back-to-back tours in Europe & Asia and the release of live drone documents as well as collaborative works with Noveller, Aidan Baker/Hypnodrone Ensemble, André Foisy/Locrian, Syndrome/Amenra, thisquietarmy’s Eric Quach went back to the drawing board in his Montreal studio, at the end of 2014. Within the repetitive genre of ambient and drone, thisquietarmy constantly evolves and tries to incorporate new additional textures and structures into the music – for instance, think of the kraut rock shoegaze of “Resurgence”, or the post rock doom of “Hex Mountains”. However, in other to start fresh and shed skin from exhaustive influences, Quach strips his music down to the black bones. Anthems for Catharsis sounds very focused but also very very dark, not unlike a ritual cleansing or a detoxification. In dismantling his sound, thisquietarmy almost struck a black metal vein, resulting in a dark and brooding ice cold oozing of his signature drones.

    Jim Haynes – Scarlet

    ,
    Jagged bursts of strobe lights. Cackling radio signals bristling with interference. Sawtooth patterns of tactile noise. Torn flesh. Scabbed wounds. These are some of the building blocks to Jim Haynes’ Scarlet. This crucible of unkempt rhythm and noise-pulse turbulence was decomposed and sutured together from the various sources of electromagnetic and psychic detritus into an unstable mutation of sequential error. The eight tracks of Scarlet stand as vastly radical and obsessive variations on the theme of repetition through trauma. Each of the tracks may have begun with the same system of building blocks, but quickly spiral into disparate orbits, time-lag accumulation, tunnel-vision mania, schizoid detours, amplified seances, and teleological endgames. This strategy of rupture and release was first noted on Haynes’ 2012 album The Wires Cracked, but has become all the more unhinged here on Scarlet. The analog tone generation and shambolic futurism harken to an earlier era of industrial immolation, with Haynes’ echolalia of Le Syndicat, Mika Vainio, and Martin Rev stridently tracing and electrically bleaching the forms of those antecedents without the benefit of drum machine, sequencer, and whatnot. Bruitisme, indeed.

    Sigtryggur Berg Sigmarsson – So Long

    ,
    A journey through time, perhaps, for a daydreamer floating in a small boat amidst the radiant hues of a midnight sun. That daydreamer in this instance is the Icelandic artist Sigtryggur Berg Sigmarsson, best known for his electro-surrealism in Stilluppsteypa. He has long been an artist of extremes and absurdities — mania fueled performances, wildly scribbled drawings, and Haflerian audio shock-therapy, on one side; and on the other, a profound meditation on austere shape, form, and mood cast through similar media. Sigmarsson will intermingle these sentiments in slippery juxtaposition and assemblage, with beguiling, haunting, and / or charming results. So Long aligns itself firmly within that latter aesthetic of crypto-minimalism which began to germinate some 20 years ago. At that time, Stilluppsteypa was a trio who had recently eschewed their art-punk trappings, drunkenly scheming to corner the market at Documenta with deconstructivist drone and 21th century circuitry. Sigmarsson would find himself in his own studio, crafting sympathetic works to Stilluppsteypa; but these were directed inward as wounded, naked, and vulnerable concoctions reflective of Sigmarsson getting lost in his own little world. So Long quietly simmered in his head over the years; and with the completion of this album, we now have a sublime gesture of polar impressionism flecked with hallucinatory ambience, Vaseline-smeared crackle, and hauntological displacement. This album had originally been planned for release through the impeccably curated Intransitive Recordings, but that publishing house shuddered its doors before this could see the light of day. Sigmarsson self-released a condensed version of the album on the artbook / cassette If You Have Any Questions, Let Me Ask. The Helen Scarsdale Agency is delighted, honored, and humbled to publish this dronescaping threnody in its full radiance and blur.
