    Lu Katavist – Inburst

    ,
    Standard 140g Vinyl edition of 70 and includes 11 x 11″ art insert and obi-strip.... The striking first entry into the CUSP label’s discography comes from Cologne-based sound artist Lu Katavist, employing a variety of synthesizer modules controlled with the Haken Continuum Fingerboard to create a cavernous tapestry of deeply spatial and spectral soundscapes. Katavist’s (real name Luka Höfler) approach to the material derived on ‘Inburst’ has been wholly improvisational, but not in any sense traditional. Rather than acquiring any sort of mastery of the equipment chosen to build the sounds heard, Höfler has opted to adopt an almost automatic writing approach to sculpting the material, which he describes as ‘blurring the lines between creating and listening’. The aesthetic goals behind ‘Inburst’ are two fold; to introduce the Western ear to timbres and melodies more associated with lesser heard xenharmonic scales and to inspire a minds eye landscape for the listener to populate with their own experiences, focusing on scattered and layered frequency bands and melody to create a vibrant and evolving mise-en-scene to paint with.

    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.

    thisquietarmy – Anthems for Catharsis

    ,
    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.

    Brinstaar – Testarossa

    ,
    320 numbered copies on black 12′ vinyl packed into gorgeous holographic jacket... Testarossa is third studio album by Brinstaar. He says that this album is dedicated to redheaded blue-skinned Goddess. This work is reflecting Brinstaar’s deep and emotional chase for the elusive moment of infinite bliss that keeps him alive and conscious. While using mainly processed guitars for Infotswetock and synths for Mielisss, Brinstaar uses a lot of acoustic instruments and field recorded sounds in Testarossa now, thus creates much more intimate compositions. Of course, his specialty mesmerizing synth parts and precisely constructed guitar timbres are still here too.

    [Bolt ] – 03

    ,
    The follow-up to their meanwhile sold out record ( 0 2 ) and a stream of collaborations presents the drone-duo in a grown-up, elaborated heavy darkness soundwise. Where once the distorted-to-the-max walls of sound were all over the place, a more ambient-esk eagerness to experiment comes into play. This progress suits the diversity of the record pretty well. But it’s still highly recommended to play this one at health-risky volume.

    Limited Edition of 250 copies. Heavyweight black vinyl. Printed inner sleeves and free digital download. Grawl!x’ debut album is a misty dream of melancholic shoegazing and rich soundscapes of compelling tunes. A mixture that ends up as a mature and perfectly executed album which is rounded off with hazy, distant vocals that guide you from the fragile beginning of “Good Grief” to the trembling and moving climax towards the end. There’s a lot to discover in the rich and detailed arrangements of the songs, but even the sparse parts on the album are anxious to please – and they do succeed.

    Das Sombreros – The Lamp

    ,
    Das Sombreros – to rhyme with ‘hair loss’ rather than ‘pharaohs’ – is Pedro Wong and Klaus Patel. The pseudonymous duo develop ‘paranoiac collages’ that layer found and treated sounds with nonsensical, misheard phrases and fleeting moments of musicality. The results can be hallucinatory, sinister, erotic and hilarious – sometimes all at once. Despite the ambient washes that permeate the nine tracks that constitute The Lamp, the music of Das Sombreros could never be consigned to the background. It demands to be listened to, not just heard. However, as with all the best experimental music, the work the listener is required to put in is richly rewarded. In this case, with a series of documents that seem to have been plucked fully formed from the psychologically precarious mind of a sleeping recluse.

    Limited edition 180g LP, gatefold sleeve inc. download code... William Bennett, the musical mastermind behind WHITEHOUSE and CUT HANDS, has already worked with zeitkratzer at several occasions. 4 years after their first CD (Whitehouse, zeitkratzer records) the critically acclaimed ensemble and the highly influential noise pioneer release their second album. Recorded live at the festival Musique Action in Nancy / France, the new recording goes even further: while the deep bass frequencies – produced by the huge orchestra drum, at some points as well by the beaten bass strings of the piano or by subtones of the horns – made vibrate not only the floor of the venue while on the other hand high piping sounds, amplified violin harmonics, bitten clarinet tones attack the listener. A music with crystal clear or even neurosurgical precision. And one can hear voices all over – distorted from being spoken through a trombone, a French horn, phantom voices in the density of the sounds, etc. No electronic effects are used – it’s pure acoustic power!

    Tone / Talibam / Kulik – Double Automatism

    ,
    New York City’s experimental duo TALIBAM! team up with fluxus artist / electronic avant-gardist YASUNAO TONE and trombonist SAM KULIK for a confrontational sonic attack, fired by an array of analog synths and other electronic devices. “Bringing together the most calamitous materials from their home planets of Noise, glitch, and free improvisation, TONE and TALIBAM! are at once the likeliest and unlikeliest of conspirators. Despite making his home in New York since 1971, TONE’s foundational electronic work harkens back to his early days in revolutionary Japanese avant-garde collectives Group ONGAKU and HI RED CENTER, and resonates with his groundbreaking deconstructions of digital CD sound in the 1980s. Meanwhile in the post-art worlds of millennial Brooklyn, TALIBAM! have cranked out their own absurd, profane and unclassifiable improvisational style, bringing their provocations around the world, and proficiently mediating jazz, rock, and hip-hop along the way; trombonist SAM KULIK brings an acoustic element to the mix that invokes the live sonic mixes of MUSICA ELETTRONICA VIVA. In their collaboration “Double Automatism”, they forge a confrontational new alliance in the transnational history of experimental sound, with the noisiest consequences imaginable.”

The LP and DVD was mastered by Giuseppe Ielasi and pressed on 140g vinyl. 2015 marks the 104th birthday of Canadian visionary Marshall McLuhan. With each passing year the revelatory nature of his prophetic vision becomes more evident. The global village is becoming a distinct reality in this technological age. McLuhan’s ability to predict the full impact of technology and media on our culture decades in advance is unprecedented. And his deep concern and warnings to us in these drastic changes in civilization are rarely heeded as we head full-steam ahead past the point of no-return, the consequences which are increasingly self-evident.

    Ormonde are Anna-Lynne Williams (Trespassers William/Lotte Kestner) and Robert Gomez, and Cartographer/Explorer is the Seattle band’s second album, following on from 2012’s Machine which garnered keen praise on both sides of the Atlantic for its delicate acoustic songwriting. Individually, the two members of Ormonde have impressive CVs: Williams toured with Damien Rice, Feist, Broken Social Scene and Explosions in the Sky during her time in Trespassers William (Nettwerk Records) and also co-wrote and sang Hold Tight London on Chemical Brothers’ Push the Button album. Gomez is a respected producer/multi-instrumentalist who has worked with John Grant, Centro-matic and Sarah Jaffe and was previously signed to Bella Union. Ormonde however, is where the two locate their shared vision, and it’s a spellbinding place to spend some time.

    Pausal – Along the Mantic Spring

    ,
    180 gram pressing. The sleeves were made by a bookbinder and the result is a very heavy tip-on style gatefold sleeve and then finished with an OBI strip. Color version is sold out on pre-orders, the black vinyl is still available. This is the new full-length LP from Pausal. Layer upon layer of guitar-based ambient with a bit of modern classical worked into the mix. Pausal is a duo from the U.K. consisting of Alex Smalley (Olan Mill) and Simon Bainton. This is their 4th full-length album (there are also 2 eps to their credit) and is the follow-up to the ‘Sky Margin’ LP (Own Records) from last year. Pausal exists in a sub-genre of ambient lead by guitar-based drone ambience as well as layer upon gentle layer of more guitar, bells, piano and environmental recordings. It invites deeper listening into the composition itself. A composition built in restraint, a discernable set of hazy layers, and careful construction revealing a recording of rare beauty. “Modern classical ambient”, a slight-return to the denser and more reverb-drenched places of their earlier work but with the benefit of hindsight.

    Jerome Longhi – Sonameon

    It’s ever hard to find some words about a debut. There’s nothing to compare. Yes, of course, there could be thrown in some names, or it could be mentioned that Jerome Longhi grew up in a musical family and learned playing guitar at seven…started his 1st Band as kid and now ownes a production studio. But is it important that way? Maybe the fact, he was just fed up from guitar music. With the thought, that the broom chamber would fit his sound to leave the domestic fields of Rock for a while.

In fact, were there a Buddha Box with only the final track “An Uneven Lie” I probably would never leave the house again. – Field Hymns

    Padang Food Tigers / Lake Mary

    ,
    It seems a logical step to follow up Scissor Tail Editions 2012 reissue of Bruce Langhorne’s score to “The Hired Hand” with these two beautifully constructed pieces of music from artists residing on separate sides of the planet. Padang Food Tigers and Chaz Prymek AKA (Lake Mary) both employ similar instrumentations to that of “The Hired Hand” soundtrack. Banjos play the lead role for Padang Food Tigers and Lake Mary as well in building imaginary desolate landscapes. Guitar and piano float in and out. These could easily be heard as companion pieces “Crabbing King Sappling” builds heavy cinematic tension while “White River” acts as a blissful release. Both artists are apt creators of space and masters of turning your repetitive thoughts into wandering nomads. – Scissor Tail

    Jesse Aycock – Out to Space…

    ,
    Limited edition of 200. Letter-pressed, hand numbered jackets and artwork by Dylan Aycock at Scissor Tail Private Press. “This music is a little close to home. I’m happy and honored to be releasing my older brother Jesse Aycock’s first vinyl record on Record Store Day. This 7″ will be quickly followed up by a full length record early 2014. The album was recorded at the historic Church Studio in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The studio was originally founded and opened by Leon Russell in the 70’s and has recently been reopened this last year. The band for this record is made up of some Tulsa players as well as Neal Casal of (Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Ryan Adams and The Cardinals, Beachwood Sparks) and George Sluppick of (Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Ruthie Foster, Albert King and many more…) I’ve been watching Jesse play live for years and growing up hearing him develop his style in the bedroom next to mine, practicing guitar licks to classic records for endless hours. That being said it’s no surprise that his music and influence has seeped into my subconscious and finds favor at Scissor Tail. It puts into context a lot of my own musical choices and changes over the years. I’m obviously biased but I believe there’s a nostalgia and sincerity that can be heard and felt by anyone who takes time to listen to this quickly collectible record as Jesse has just been picked up as the guitarist for The Secret Sisters. Jesse was featured on the cover of Tulsa People last month and will be playing songs from this album and his previous two albums across the US throughout 2014.” – Dylan Aycock

    Rivulets – Stars In Aspic

    ,
    Rivulets is US songwriter Nathan Amundson. He has released albums on Important, Chair Kickers’ Union and O Rosa Records, as well as numerous EPs, split releases and compilations. Since 2000 Rivulets has toured extensively across the US and Europe, gaining fervent acclaim for his achingly fragile, minimal song-craft. This is Rivulets’ debut solo vinyl record, and the first physical release since 2011. Trome Records has been a fan of Rivulets’ achingly fragile song-craft for years now, so we’re really pleased to be able to bring you this beautiful record. 
’Stars In Aspic’ on the A side is full-band languid Americana which rocks out towards the end, augmented by Nathan’s distinctive vocals that hit you somewhere in the chest. 
’It’s Here’ on Side B hails from the opposite end of the Rivulets sound palette, with a deep, brooding late-night guitar ambient drone. As ever with Nathan’s work, both tracks on ‘Stars In Aspic’ sound bruised yet searingly honest, the effect of which seeps into the listener and stays there.
Artwork is from the photographer Christy Romanick [http://christyromanick.tumblr.com] who has previously contributed sleeve art for Rivulets, Windy & Carl, thisquietarmy, Windsor For The Derby and Infinite Light Ltd among others. 
Limited black vinyl with thick black card inner sleeves and hand-stamped labels. 
Essential.

    Charles-Eric Charrier – Petite Soeur

    ,
    Charles-Eric Charrier is a French bassist and pianist mining the remote seams of music between post-classical, jazz, acoustic blues and ambient. Hidden or distant those seams may be, but all the richer for those who take the time to seek them out. Echoes of innovative artists like Earth, Anouar Brahem, Bohren und der Club of Gore, Chet Baker or even Malian musicians such as Ali Farka Toure and Tinariwen sometimes appear on the horizon, only to disappear at the next turn. Charrier’s music as band-leader on ‘Petite Soeur’, his first release for Gizeh Records, is endlessly yearning and searching, pushing and pulling at the basic fabric of bass, piano, drums and guitar. Repetition, space and a sublime understanding of how instruments speak with each other are the key fundamentals in this album. Witness the patient guitar that opens ‘No Closed To Be’, taking its own sweet time before first acoustic bass and then percussion fall into line behind. And the narcotic, late-night jazz of the title track with drums, piano and Fender Rhodes slurring around Charrier’s steady bass pulse. Or the gradual build of ‘Instant/Moment’ into a sustained, pulse-like drive before pausing, exhausted by the sun on the plains, and then collapsing into a mesmerising swirl of woodwind, organ, piano and bowed drones. ‘Petite Soeur’ may be all-instrumental, but we can hear Charrier’s voice as clear as a bell. It is defined by empathy and clarity. In its own way, this is soul music.

    Andrew Johnson: a new line (related) (2 x Vinyl)

    ,
    A New Line (Related) is the latest venture from Lancashire-based Andrew Johnson (Hood/Remote Viewer/Moteer). Utilising tools from the early days of home produced underground dance music (such as SK5 sampler keyboards and vintage drum machines) Andrew has unearthed a beautiful album of downbeat, lamp-lit techno, industrial grade ambience and sonic experimentation which at times recalls early Warp Records, Gescom and raw, 313 area Beatdown House, as well as the more modern breed of electronic and techno travellers such as Actress, Mark Fell (Late Period) and even Theo Parrish (The Slow Sound Of Your Life). Despite (or maybe because of) the antiquated sound sources, these tracks pull and tug at the emotions. Rattling drum machines pick out rhythms while underneath, carefully played warm synths and a mesh of samples slowly emerge, introducing melody and texture into the pieces. All culminating in a spacious, evocative and unhurried work. As well as the more beat-driven tracks, there are moments of intense stillness (People Kissed Underneath Me), Steve Reich-esque, gamelan style hypnotic nodders (Repetition) and probably one of the most beautiful tracks you’re likely to hear this year (Great Palaces).

    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…

    Andree / Mason – Call, Response

    ,
    “Call, Response” was conceived of as a long distance musical conversation between Josh Mason and David Andree. A single take of material performed by one artist was recorded to magnetic tape and sent to the other with the restriction that accompaniment be recorded in real time as well, closely simulating a live performance. Over time, as the players learned more about each other and their methods, an overarching quality to the body of work developed from their shared sensibilities. The call and response format allowed the voice of each artist to be present, interacting and intersecting, within a murky atmosphere punctuated by melodic fragments and moments of clarity.

    Good Night & Good Morning – Narrowing Type

    ,
    Narrowing Type, the first full length album in Good Night & Good Morning’s five year history, is an exploration of the darker side of nostalgia, texture, and delicacy. Recorded entirely in home studios between Chicago and Milwaukee, Narrowing Type retains GN&GM’s vibraphone and guitar core but uses the addition of drums while detouring into sublime realms of static and noise to leave you with deconstructed yet thickened pop music heard and felt through a haze of fog. Limited 12” vinyl mastered by Taylor Deupree (12k). RIYL: Grouper, The American Analog Set, Stars of the Lid, Low, Jesu.

    Juppala Kaapio – Alpen Ocean

    ,
    This release is a limited edition of 250 copies… Alpen Ocean is the final recording of Carole Kojo (Swiss) and Hitoshi Kojo (Japanese) that they left behind as Juppala Kaapio, whilst resident in Switzerland. The sound sources are rather familiar instruments and materials for us such as voices, handmade instruments, viola, organic materials and field recordings. However, the style has evolved to a hybrid of our early style: an intense harmonic drone music that has appeared in RAINBOW MASK, and another phase which might be termed as a cosmopolitan ethnic music, that has been archived in later recordings such as OWLORA MUSKARIA and ANIMALIA COROLLA. The overlaid harmonies of a murmuring of trees, howling skies, roarings of the ocean and the gradual transformation that is accompanied by melodies may remind you of migratory birds travelling across the sky on a lost ancient continent, or the dream of sea animals that are in eternal slumber in a ridge of mountains. This piece would be one of a high-water mark by Jüppala Kääpiö who have looked for sound which resonates throughout time and space, whilst regarding a life-size reality that is rooted on the earth. Since the move to Belgium where is a foreign county for both of us in 2011, we are investigating a passage to our next chapter in the new environment.

    Chantal Acda – Let Your Hands Be My Guide (Vinyl)

    ,
    180g heavyweight LP comes in a beautiful matte finished sleeve with black inner paper sleeve stamped with the Gizeh logo. Currently based in Belgium, Dutch-born Chantal Acda (b. 1978) has worked under the Sleepingdog moniker since 2006, making three acclaimed albums that closed on the ‘With Our Heads in the Clouds and Our Hearts in the Fields’ (2010) album for which she collaborated with Adam Wiltzie (Stars of the Lid, A Winged Victory For The Sullen). They toured the UK and Benelux with Low in 2011.
 After all this, it was time for her first real solo record. Playing in various formations had made her conscious of the patterns that we all, as humans, share in. So, she sought out kindred spirits with whom she might record an album filled with freedom and intensity, and who were conscious of the patterns we so often fall back on.
