    matthew barlow – now age – phinery tapes

    out of stock

    Now Age is the latest offering from Asheville, NC sound artist, Matthew Barlow. The 50 minute long release is comprised of four pieces – each performed using original synth patches (created by Matthew) derived from a singular granular sample. Threaded throughout the four pieces are field recordings – including birds, ocean surf, crickets, and more – recorded by Barlow either at his home in the country or out during his travels.

    The title Now Age could be considered as a commentary of New Age music – specifically it’s spiritual nature -yet the title’s true intent may best be interpreted as a dismissal altogether of New Age music’s mystical ideologies. However, the album by no means wishes to present a brash, atheistic agenda. Content with suspending supernatural belief for a moment, Now Age contemplates the nature of life, and marvels at the idea that we – conscious beings – are all composed of and a part of a majestic cosmos. No mysticism need be invoked should we desire to be amazed by our existence in this world. It is that we exist at all in this expansive universe and that we are connected to it – these are the meditations of Now Age.

    Above all, Now Age hopes the listener may deepen their understanding of humankind’s connection with the cosmos and our story within it.

    ‘We are a way for the cosmos to know itself.’
    – Carl Sagan

    tuluum shimmering / plurals – split – dead pilot records

    out of stock

    Oh how far we’ve come! Hot on the heels of the massive split from Archers by the Sea and Pine Smoke Lodge comes the 7th installment in the series! Pairing up Plurals with Tuluum Shimmering.

    Plurals need no introduction by now. “Ocset Refund” is a track I heard come to life live a few months back in a small pub in High Wycombe. I remember being totally paralyzed by it then just as much as I am now. Plurals have mastered the art of hypnotics with synths and howls and keep bettering themselves with each release. “Ocset Refund” is a piece that definitely brings images of stars, planets, and solar systems to mind; almost like you are falling through space down to earth with it’s desperateness. The piece ends with a huge wave of blissful synths which are very calming in comparison to the rest of the tracks sheer intensity.

    Tuluum Shimmering has a string of limited cassette releases to his name, all with fantastic zoned out names and artwork to suit the music perfectly. Tuluum combines elements of new age, ritualistic tribal sounds and psychedelic drone. This may well be the most far out psyche jam ever on Dead Pilot. It’s fantastically uplifting and playfully melodic and rhythmic as it builds from chiming passages to walls of bright glare that end so abruptly that you bought out of your trance with quite a thump.

    Packaged in stickered black digipak with eye popping artwork by Ekca Liena with hand numbered insert and hand stamped disc. Limited to 100 copies.

    TOGETHER AT LAST, ★”delicate vocals are subtly transformed from their human origins over a ceremonial, droning bass tone; they’re drenched in gradually swelling washes of reversed guitar and synthesized chatter that shine like diamonds. The legacy lives on in this split meditation by keeping things local in the best possible way.” — Altered Zones

    jason urick & cex ‎– title king – watercolor

    out of stock

    “It’s great, these little releases that just get lost to the ethers without track titles, cassette only. I’m laughing that I even have this. It’s so good and I’m sorry to you if you slept on this release. I’m not super into dub music in general, but this exploration is well worth its effort in magnetic frequencies and supreme echo technology. Let it be known that at the time of writing this I am not a big fan of either Jason Urick or Cex solo projects, but when these two came together to make this, they took some good psychedelics and floated into a beautiful dub-rooted outerspace and also got caught in some magnificent hyper loops during travel, that neither of them could do on their own. You are lucky if you own this tape or if you have the opportunity to purchase this from someone here right now.”

    obscure release on local asheville label diatom bath.
    i want to hear more from this dude. parts of this tape are pretty great and it gets into some deep zones. at times a thick lofi amalagmation that touches upon more referenceable sounds but is able to maintain its own identity and sound.
    worthwhile listen for sure and ill be keeping an eye out for future releases

    no shoes one sock – this is our raga – terrapin recordings

    $7.00 Add to cart

    This Is Our Raga, the latest cassette from Hamilton, ON’s No Shoes & One Sock, manages to pull this dual feat off perfectly.

    Primarily the project of Jamie Ryan Downey, but also including Drew and Reg (last names unknown), the project is described as “Indian primitive,” with the raga title reference also indicating as much. India Currents magazine states that “a raga is a scale which is played one way going up (arohi) and another way going down (avarohi). There are also two heavily emphasized notes, usually a fourth apart called the vadi and samvadi (usually translated as the ‘king’ and ‘prime minister notes.’” As with traditional Indian ragas, No Shoes & One Sock’s piece mostly consists of the same scale, but played in interestingly evolving ways. The upfront, but not in your face, presence of the sitar also adds to the classical Indian vibe.

    What sets This Is Our Raga apart from other generic cross-blends of Eastern and ambient, however, is the inherent eeriness present throughout the piece’s duration. From the omnipresent howling heard in the background throughout to the 1950s scifi film-like noises that emerge at unpredictable moments, there is a subtle darkness to this raga that takes it from being a simple ode to classical Indian music to a truly unique experience.

    With this simple, but perfect blending of traditional Indian raga and ambient/drone techniques (which of course trace their origins back to Indian music) This is Our Raga is truly one of those refreshing pieces of music that can be played on an endless loop and listened to all day with every listen yielding a different experience.

    jeffry astin (xiphiidae, digital natives…) as eheieh.

    Stangely enough discogs refers to Jeff as the Xiphiidae ghost.
    And oftentimes it’s only a unintentional,random chain of events that connects you to jeff in the physical world.
    You get a sense of him like a specter showing up in dreams like a long lost friend that you find yourself running after calling their name. Appearing now and then in the side of your vision. Clarity though comes.

    This release touches more upon the slight grayness running through our visions. What starts out as a seemingly usual Digital Natives jam veers off course & though the undercurrents may feel similiar the sense that this is not a digital natives release becomes apparent….eheieh

    Gonna take a while to fully take this one in. The chaos is inherent but the slight manipulations, the slight shufflings of that chaos into something comprehensible is where it’s at.
    Much thanks to Jeff and Diatom Bath for working tirelessly to get this out.

    xiphiidae – material mind – maggot valley

    its hard to sum up the actions and experimentations of a brilliant mind. Jeffry Astin in general is a pioneer of his creations and has created several new genres/styles of music all of his own hands, and counting
    all of us who collect his recordings know this, if you are new to his music, and you love the music that is out on other labels similar to this one, i recommend you find as much as you can for the experience in general…dabble into the man, he will show you new faces of music
    the beauty of xiphiidae is that you never know what you’re getting yourself into. a weaving tapestry of layered collauge of sounds from so many sources, it could be composed and conducted with instruments, or it could be all random/found/selected/lost and found ressurected, or the hidden brought into our light….all sprouted from the rich magnetic soil that is the mind of Housecraft Jeff. for his fans: the man IS a state of mind, and his past and present will continue in our personal history books in music ALWAYS. have a listen to the sample of “frangrence in color” and let yourself get swept into getting this tape. creep art menace by maggot jeremiah, the 1 and only. this is a produb edition
