  • Spencer Clark – the simulated australia – edicoes cn

    $18.00 Add to cart

    Clark’s metier is to envision fantastic imageries of the other worlds and translate these in tones and images in a very direct and personal fashion. Not necessarily indulged in the world of angels and crystals, yet enjoying himself a demon or two while aestheticizing a beautiful and positive Great Darkness. An artist that is both a dreamer sporting a whiff of naiveté, yet someone who likes to make things difficult and refuses to repeat himself, nor settling for laying back in the fringes of today. To go the whole way, and along this way, at his finger tips revealing little by little a true meaning of his oeuvre. A body of work that is both very playful and deeply serious. With compositions applying a tone scheme and style of keyboard playing that is by now completely his own, “Clark’s Scale”.

    This release however reveals possible new meanings of our own world. Driven by simple observation and little interference, the normally sensationalistic world of field recordings becomes a simple vessel for aestheticizing reality. Yet the wave sounds, bird calls, and aquarium background music become a new world through Clark’s ears. Originally intended as a personal study for his recently released “The World Of Shells” LP, and as a sound source for other projects, i however deemed these recordings more than interesting and “content full” enough to release them how they are. Open curtain … !

    These are ambiences from Australian landscapes, recorded by Spencer Clark (Monopoly Child Star Searchers, Typhonian Highlife, The Skaters, et al). Forced by undersigned into the genus of the field recordist. Natural sounds are mirrored to a world of fabricated aquarium music. Where lorikeets and ocean waves serve as a counterpoint for beautiful, light background airs. The recorder cunningly observes a building where the tourist forages, and fascinates the sounds of lands that are forever spiritual to the native. Captured on handheld cassette recorder as both being a study, and a private s(t)imulation. Resulting in a document that is a particular addition to Clark’s catalogue, where the symbolism, the mirth and the mundane forever morph.

  • ssaliva – mercury coast – not not fun

    $8.00 Add to cart

    Belgian shapeshifter Francois Boulanger has traversed several spheres of liquid electronics and mutated beat music across his half-decade of activity as Ssaliva, but in the winter of 2010 he holed up in an old historic house in the town where he grew up, Chaudfontaine, with a partially broken Tascam 4-track to pursue a different muse, on a different wavelength: “The place was super cold. Everything was recorded straight to tape. I was bored using a laptop so these tracks were a reaction to that, I guess.” The 22 grainy guitar instrumentals comprising Mercury Coast slide through a fractured prism of moods, reveries, daydreams, and deliriums, from paranoid surf (“Borys,” “Health”) to opiate lullaby (“Cloud Gap,” “Hyperreal,” “Weav”) to smeared haze (“School Rave,” “Trave”) and beyond. There’s a naked, intuitive feel to the songs, like sketches born from smoke and sleeplessness, tracked at strange hours. The frayed fidelity further enhances the album’s aura of cloaked emotion, altered states, and raw truth. Shortly after the sessions Boulanger and two Brussels associates, Dynoo and Nosedrip, launched a label (Surf Kill) to release the recordings but for unremembered reasons nothing materialized. NNF is honored to finally share this overlooked outlier to a wider world. Artwork and design by Dieter Durinck. Mastered by Alter Echo.


  • corum – magic mirror – psychic sounds

    $15.00 Add to cart

    “Corum constructs a mind-melting psychopharmacological vision wherein rhythms and melodies ooze into and out of focus. He brings a psychedelic atmosphere, one not culled from a traditional sense, but of a deeply innate ability to transform a space sonically creating a more spiritual, or visceral affair.” “This year sees the release of Magic Mirror, a new solo collection that finishes out a loosely themed trilogy of solo records. The new LP is world music in the broadest sense of that term, incorporating drum rhythms from Africa, instrumentation from the Middle East, and very Western electronic elements. A welcome celebratory and hypnotic vibe, which will perfectly match the incantatory spirit of his work.” – ROBERT HAM, Portland Mercury

    Final album of the Beguiling Isles Trilogy (Beguiling Isles / Effigy Mounds / Magic Mirror).


  • lost trail – a retreat more than a surrender – geology records

    $7.00 Add to cart

    On A Retreat More Than A Surrender, Lost Trail pull off the trick of writing post apocalyptic music that transcends. This is music for the moment when humanity takes a deep breath and says, “Since we’re starting over anyway, let’s do things differently this time.” There is darkness here, but there is a lot more light. Nothing is fucked forever.


  • garde forestier – – field hymns

    $6.00 Add to cart

    Garde Forestier is vaguely sinister 80’s hold music a lunatic French guru turned into mediation loops. Or perhaps it’s a Casio workstation gone on the fritz but becoming sentient, all whilst dealing with the breakdown of its physical body and the unfairness of bothering with such a burden at such a momentous time. Maybe Garde Forestier really is a front for a Danish trio of nuns who built up these tracks in the brief moments free from the rigors of monastic life. Perhaps we are witnessing the first stirring of a post-vaporwave work unbound and unmoored from its stable of lockstep clone acolytes. Perhaps.

    Garde Forestier is from Tours, FR


  • an elm – fly pan elm – cosmic winnetou

    $8.00 Add to cart

    “fly pan elm” is a reaction to the positive feedback on it’s predecessor, “a nightmare, an elm street”, which was originally planned to be a one-off. yet “fly pan elm” picks a retro-charme inflated picture, and colours it with it’s own paint of synthesizer melodies. memories of the peak of trans atlantic flights are nestled in sounds of subtle irony. put your seat back in a horizontal position.


  • strom noir – the white colour of the clouds – cosmic winnetou

    $8.00 Add to cart

    very first intention was to come up with the tape release consisting of tracks made by using solely guitar resonances. so few tracks are based, almost purely, on the sound fragments which were recorded in a way that i started to record couple of seconds, even minutes, after the last tone was played. on the other hand, there are “more regular” tracks which are based on a simple melody, repeated during the entire track. i have always had some kind of fondness for such tracks, there is some kind of thrill which puts listener into an expectation of the change which, at the end, does not come. finally i’ve recorded tracks that represent some kind of conjunction of what one can hear on the album, abstract fragments as well as melodic parts. as the result, the white colour of the clouds represents probably the most conceptualized release I have ever made.
    masterfully crafted reverberating guitar drones that keeps no soul untouched. everybody needs some drone pillow from time to time, don’t you?
