  • 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).


  • million brazilians – slip enchantment – psychic sounds

    $5.00 Add to cart

    The new work, captured in the Northwest at Olympia’s famed Dub Narcotic studio and the band’s own Hive Studio, maintains the hypnotic entanglements of their previous work while adding in some welcome intrusions of noise and some horror movie soundtrack atmospherics. Just listen to how “A Coin Set Upon Crossed Roads” creaks to life like a Golem finding its balance before slowly breaking into an elegant ndlamu, urged on by Suzanne Stone’s wild vocals, the drums of James Shaver, and the unholy scrape of guest player Idaho Joe Windslow’s gongtar.

    The flipside – the three movement “Triple Torch” – takes the opposite tack, bouncing into the world with a dangerously charming grin and the jangle of metal on metal before the second section wheezes into view through the skein of hair-raising reed work via Corum and friend of the Brazilians Arrington de Dionyso on contrabass clarinet. It’s not necessarily relaxing or calming. It’s more like setting a steady buzz into your medulla oblongata to facilitate the flow of blood to your extremities. You’ll feel alive and tingling and fully aware. Get a cassette deck that will play both sides in a loop to better facilitate the immersive experience of Slip Enchantments. Your mind and body will thank you for it.” – Robert Hamm, Experimental Portland

    -Professionally dubbed onto chrome tape with optional Dolby B
    -Color art & insert

  • million brazilians & thollem electric – volcanic gremlin magnet -psychic sounds

    $7.00 Add to cart

    “Wonderfully weird collaboration, between avant free jazz tribalists Million Brazilians and legendary improvised pianist Thollem McDonas creating a combo of yet another freaky transmission from whatever otherworldly outpost these mysterious Portland free jazz & drone outsiders call home, and lordy, is it chaotic, throbbing and beautiful. Eerie wavering electric insect buzz delicately unfurl near the start, quiet and pretty… that gives way to a ceremonial gong call churning into a rhythmic jam of deep bass and cyclic hand drum groove, super fuzzed-out organ, angular guitar thwack, flute coloration, and wailing sax sometimes in perfect harmony, other times exploding into an eruption of turbulent jazz freak out truly sounding like a primordial opening of volcanic cavern. Within those various sounds, MB & Thollem, intentionally twist everything up, adding all kinds of evocative noises, woozy marimbas, mysterious rumbles, swirling jungle drums, sonic detritus of bells, shakers and ghostly calls that seem to unfold and flower and splinter into all sorts of different shapes and sounds as the set progresses forming some sort of scene like a Central American ritualistic exorcism into ecstatic celebration ending with a gorgeous distant flute calling. The Million Brazilian’s sound have managed to be dangerously distinct and totally prolific, but completely enigmatic and underground at the same time. With Thollem’s range between spastic gritty textures to enthralling minimalist pulsations of a well tempered synthesizer, “Volcanic Gremlin Magnet” creates a lush, expressive, and alien strain of jazz. It’s a fantastic 54 minutes, all right! Highly Recommended!”
