  • sparkling wide pressure – clouds & stairs – no kings

    $15.00 Add to cart

    t’s a catalog that has canonized a style, absolving for the rest of us our short-lived, limited-run, lo-fi, sold-out, essential and unaccountable suburban warbled bedroom collages heard once or lost, or played to ruin. It is a singular, sustained warmth reverse-looped, slowed and low-pitched to a slur then cut and smeared out across itself. An off-kilter rattle, an open-tuned trance. The fleeting and the incidental balanced against the willful and the measured. Dimensions restless, texture insatiable. Frank Baugh has been crafting sounds as Sparkling Wide Pressure from Murfreesboro, TN since 2007. Clouds and Stairs is his fourth release for No Kings and our very first vinyl record. Edition of 250 black discs in letterpressed foldover sleeves with black or gold ink, and risograph insert. Mastered by Brian Pyle.


  • sigbrand – secret handshake – no kings

    $6.00 Add to cart

    Carl Koopmans’ (of excellent tape label Space Slave Editions and pioneering file sharing site The Radiant Now) first solo outing on tape is for the format, by the format. Field recordings made on his extensive travels which have finally landed him in Japan teaching English, where the pieces were completed – dark collages of wind wisps, distant harmonics, the sounds made by mountains, with touches of melody and ephemeral shakuhachi performance by Koopmans. Edition of 100 pro-dubbed and imprinted tapes, 3-color risograph artwork.


  • r. lee dockery & smokey emery – spare me forever just this once – no kings

    $6.00 Add to cart

    Double drone masterclass collaboration served up from these two Austin, TX experimenters, R. Lee Dockery and Daniel Hipolito, on the heels of their respective solo releases from Marmara and Holodeck. These five collages show glimpses of Goblin, flashes of black metal, and of course the Dictaphone-haze and dark gauzy washes these artists are known for. Like a symphony orchestra playing through an earthquake, this music is tireless, urgent, and steeped in gravitas. 100 pro-dubbed and imprinted tapes, mastered by Justin Sweatt, with 2-color risograph artwork, designed by Lee Noble and Amy Fortunato.
