  • turban chopsticks – mexican food – sun ark

    out of stock

    Born in a trance of Adelaide swelter, bánh mì, and Candyman, “MEXICAN FOOD” represents a blistering sesh down under: Cameron Stallones, Tony Lowe, and Alex Gray, two guitars and drums, no pedals. Made possible by and dedicated to the greatest Australians: Stacey & Rani who showered the voyage with herbs, fresh fruit, and good vibes. Word has it, after this recording was made everyone went out and lifted a car!

    Not since the regal, wobbling transmissions from the SOHNI CHAMBERS have these two been present on tape together. The occasion: creating a score for visual artist Abbe Findley’s film “HARVESTER,” a compendium of footage of harvesting machines from around the world. In a special, softly-carpeted chamber procured just far enough off a dirt road in Joshua Tree, CA, the two cloistered themselves for several days of organ and guitar explorations fueled only by hot-plate burritos and date shakes. On this double cassette, dear listener, find the monumental results: bleary but startling, dynamic compositions that wander in all directions through a fading golden light, consistently subverting the sonic limitations of the simple instrumentation. Ranging from sublimely pastoral horizontals to increasingly unnerving non-Euclideans, there’s something here for the whole family. Truly a “large-scale work,” recorded on cassette, and presented on 2 gold cassettes.


  • pedro muthaship – ten revolutions of wrong – sun ark

    $7.00 Add to cart

    Sir Muthaship is only the latest vehicle of reliably seasick sea-captain Pete Hope. A sweated hand upon the 4-track, he guides the unmarked sloop from one steaming, disreputable port to another by wan moonlight. What emerges when the shore-haze finally lifts is a cassette of Ten Blues, funny little boogies that must describe what the cybernetics are up to in the lamp-lit driftwood shacks that lean seaward out of the shadowed mangroves. A busy little series of shakes, for when shakin’ is the quickest way out. A series of stuttering revolutions that put the “fun” in “malfunction.” Presented on a tar-black cassette.


  • wanda group – a man moves out of his skeleton – sun ark

    out of stock

    Wanda Himself has been extracting thistled, obsidian slabs of field-recording based ambience from his human experience since 2012 when Wanda became the most active moniker of experimental musician Louis Johnstone. Over-the-moon to be presenting one of these obelisks on Sun Ark, A MAN MOVES OUT OF HIS SKELETON is a florid, pearlescent bit of patience; hyper-tactile environments, delicately processed, that blossom startling, enormous sheets of synthesis at precisely the right moments. Presented on a lucid white cassette.


  • a.c. band / sadistic candle – st/st – sun ark records

    A double album almost three years in the making, Barrett Avner (Black Bananas, Sic Alps, Sun Araw Band) returns to solo recorded work with a double-double. In the classic “two-sides of” conceit, Cassette 1 offers Mr. Avner piloting A.C. Band through a series of sensitive rock tunes with chicken shack guitar squawks worthy of the best Hagerty compositions, acoustic jangles worthy of F.J. Mcmahon, and harmonized solos worthy of Thin Lizzy. The sound of a chili-dog exercising Emersonian self-reliance. But then! Cassette 2 presents the return of SADISTIC CANDLE, now with bombastic double-down reverbed Schoolly D 808s and boogie synths building scaffolds for face-melting Maggot Brain solos. The sound of a giant, cartoon basketball sneaker on the loose. Together this double-album functions as a tribute to Barrett’s grandfather Chuck Avner, who founded and ran the Ohio men’s fashion boutique Man Talk Intl., which served Cleveland’s swinging, funk/boogie scene. Both albums are presented in collaboration with the spirit of Man Talk Intl., and with its blessing. Truly, a mix of music this explosive and strange could only come from one man, and that man is my genius friend Barrett Avner. Presented on 2 mustard yellow cassettes.
