  • sasha conda – bronco –

    $10.00 Add to cart

    Bronco Stephenson – a man devoid of self doubt or the capacity for deep thought, but exceedingly effective in more carnal procedures. Armed with a solid gold hand cannon, a long territorial strut and a fierce addiction to adrenaline, inhalants and psycho-inhibitors, Bronco carves a path through The Palace Interior – a hyper-terrarean ultra mall the size of a city. A mecca of consumeristic glee where half-jacked vape junkies crowd the halls of The Walgreen’s Health Services Stratum, and The Plasticmen survey every square inch of marketable real estate.

    BRONCO is a concept album conceived and executed by Sasha Conda (sounds) and Patrick Scott-Walsh (words). BRONCO is available in physical form, including the 24 page short story by PS Walsh, from Not Not Fun Records. A .pdf of the short story is included in digital downloads of the album, available through this bandcamp.

    All sounds recorded and mixed by S. Conda and mastered by Neil Weir. Art by Keith Rankin.

    one title from a well preserved, almost forgotten stock of 5 different vinyl records (from a series of 11) with field recordings of traditional African music, released by the Belgian Royal Museum for Central Africa (RMCA) and the Belgian Radio and Television (BRT), between 1968 and 1973.

    The records document vocal and instrumental music of several peoples of Chad, Cameroon, Angola and Zaïre (Congo) and come with an extensive soft cover booklet with texts in 4 languages (Dutch-French-German-English), illustrated with maps and b/w images. The fresh and colourful figurative design of both the records and booklets, is by Maurits Bilcke.

    The music was recorded by ethnomusicologists from the museum and other partner institutions and released outside of the music industry and classic music distribution channels; they were meant as scientific ‘publications’ rather than commercial products. Probably pressed in small amounts, they have since their release only been sold in the museum shop, while the rest was safely stocked in boxes for over 40 years.

    They saw the daylight again when the museum decided to liquidate a lot of its stock in view of a temporary closure of 3 years during which the museum will be completely renovated and the presentation of its collection, modernized.


    Field recordings made in Chad by Monique Brandily in 1965-69.
    Released in collaboration with national Belgian Radio and Television Broadcasting Company (Belgische Radio en Televisie – BRT)
    Comes with a 69 pages illustrated text booklet in French, Dutch, English en German

  • hallock hill – the union / a hem of evening – mie

    out of stock

    2012 release. Named one of the ten best solo acoustic guitar albums of the year by The Out Door and a top ten album of the year by The Liminal, Tom Lecky’s debut album as Hallock Hill elicited a powerful response when it was first released on CD by Hundred Acre Recordings in 2011. The album’s unique assembly of stacked and layered acoustic, electric and lap steel guitars delivered a new kind of studio improvisation: pieces that were spontaneously made, yet feel composed, pieces that glide from harmonious to dissonant in the instances where their improvisations swerve around one another and occasionally collide. MIE Music brings The Union to vinyl for the first time as a double LP, paired with Hallock Hill’s album A Hem of Evening: six interlocking acoustic pieces that extend the structural themes of The Union’s central acoustic tracks. Lecky again builds a range of overlapping improvisations and twisted melodic weavings, but here within a more naked and spare atmosphere. Where some of the tracks on The Union were structured by continually stacking great density of sound and involutions, the tracks on A Hem of Evening work with a different geometry. Air and space: expansion of themselves within themselves, rather than an expansion coming from additional voices. In the words of Fluid Radio’s Andy Gillham, A Hem of Evening shows “a canny ability to build meaningful musical structure from free-form composition.” A book of prose poems and photographs based on these pieces accompanies the LP. The Union and A Hem of Evening are released as a double LP in a deluxe gatefold sleeve with the A Hem of Evening book in an edition of 300 copies.
