  • xander harris – urban gothic – nnf

    $12.00 Add to cart

    In much the same way as Umberto excavates the graves of old 70’s Euro gore/occult scores for new nightmare-synth strategies, classically trained Austin, TX keyboard-creep maestro Xander Harris (aka Justin Sweatt) scavenges rat-gnawed 80’s basement horror VHS tapes to sift out the glimmering gothic goldflakes hidden within. Grim process, grimmer results. Each of the unlucky 13 tracks on Urban Gothic, his debut full-length, seethe and shiver and boil with sleek synthesizer city-lights paranoia and cool, cold dread. A few are cribbed from the minimal/throbbing John Carpenter handbook (“First Body,” “Crying In The Dark”) and some go for more of a clawhammering industrial approach (“Hunting,” “When The Hammer Starts To Drop”) while a few marry the video undead vibes to an almost thrill-kill cult-dance beat (“Fucking Eat Your Face,” “Tanned Skin Dress”) that pulses blackly like a strobe-lit corpse. A cool detail is that Sweatt’s a decade-deep drummer so every percussion sound on the record is actually manually played on synthetic drum pads, which gives the songs a looser and less mechanical execution. A bad-ass brainbomb of an LP with enough eerie witch-fog anthems to keep even the darkest darkwaver’s head buried in the speaker cabinet. Expect tapes, tours, and even a 100% Silk 12” from this nightstalker in the near future. Black vinyl LPs in jackets with photographed-TV horror stills by Manda B Brown. Edition of 480.

  • glitter bones – returning the magic – svns svns


    $12.00 Add to cart

    The LP features a rearranged version of their “Returning the magic” EP with 2 previously unreleased tracks and two remixes by our favorite band from Chicago.
    The LP is on semi translucent purple vinyl with white streaks, magic for the ears and the eye.
    Limited to 250 hand numbered copies.

    Rough Trade says : limited, deep rose patterned vinyl. chicago’s glitter bones do what they say on the tin. bathed in golden reverb and gorgeous guitar shimmer, ‘returning the magic’ is a pulsating, beautiful record which goes astral with its intentions and bedroom-bound in its origins. combining the chilled-to-sadness chords of jeans wilder, the nostalgic beating heart a-weeping of wild nothing and the tidal drift of summers gone and to come ‘glitter bones; make swoonsome music to fall in love to.

  • joe mcphee – alto – roaratorio

    out of stock

    Alto joins Tenor and Soprano to complete a discrete trilogy within Joe McPhee’s catalog of unaccompanied waxings. Recorded live at a Lower East Side bar in 2009, McPhee’s explorations on alto saxophone and alto clarinet are alternately fiery and contemplative, imbued with the masterful intelligence that’s marked his work for over forty years. A limited edition of 524 copies on 180 gram vinyl, with a Judith Lindbloom silkscreen print on rice paper and liner notes by Hank Shteamer. Digital download coupon included.

    A special lettered edition of 26 copies, with hand-painted covers by Judith Lindbloom, signed by Joe McPhee, can be seen here (sold out).

    “McPhee brings the same soulful yearning and exacting intelligence to the alto as to his other instruments… [his] inclusiveness and the discipline with which he exercises it, rather than the fact that he’s playing alto horns, is the real significance of this record.” – Bill Meyer, The Wire

    “Alto realizes uncountable details of the lanugage he continues to uncover, whether or not those details plump up muscular abstractions or ornamentally twist the skeletons of old tunes.” – Lyn Horton, All About Jazz

    “an amazing amazing document by master McPhee. all on alto (-sax and -clar )….he is a monster. this music is HEAVY… it doesnt get heavier… totally FANFUCKINTASTIC!”
    – Mats Gustafsson

    The Man From Plato 3000, Whose Resource Efficiency
    Ear-A-Rounded The Antiquity Pixel

    Listen Organist Dick Hyman, Whose Art Tatum Studies
    Crowdsorcerers Swallow The Cornucopian Logic Of…
    Since 2003, NYC’s Talibam! have been charting a course through the
    improv waters in a way that few other groups can pull off. Rock, jazz,
    noise and all stops in between collide in an aggressive mix that
    defines free music in the best sense of the term: nothing is deemed
    out of bounds. Too much fun to be a po-faced postmodern exercise, and
    too expertly played to be sunk in a morass of good intentions, The New
    Nixon Tapes hurtles through two side-long pieces in an agile cascade
    of rhythmic and melodic ideas. Kevin Shea (drums) and Matt Mottel
    (synthesizer) have worked with Cooper-Moore and Rhys Chatham, among
    others; here they’re joinecluded.
    -roaratoriod by master saxophonist / trumpeter /
    flautist Daniel Carter. Recorded live in the WFMU studios. MP3

  • pauline oliveros – to valerie solanas and marilyn monroe in recognition – roaratorio

    $14.00 Add to cart

    ..Of Their Desperation. “Shortly after it was published in 1968 the SCUM Manifesto by Valerie Solanas fell into my hands. Intrigued by the egalitarian feminist principles set forth in the Manifesto, I wanted to incorporate them in the structure of a new piece that I was composing. The women’s movement was surfacing and I felt the need to express my resonance with this energy. Marilyn Monroe had taken her own life. Valerie Solanas had attempted to take the life of Andy Warhol. Both women seemed to be desperate and caught in the traps of inequality: Monroe needed to be recognized for her talent as an actress. Solanas wished to be supported for her own creative work. Commissioned by the Music Department of Hope College, Holland Michigan, To Valerie Solanas and Marilyn Monroe in Recognition of Their Desperation had its premiere in 1970. Though everyone knew Marilyn Monroe hardly anyone recognized Valerie Solanas or took her Manifesto seriously. I brought the names of these two women together in the title of the piece to draw attention to their inequality and to dedicate the piece.” — Pauline Oliveros.
    “This LP contains both the 1970 Hope College premiere, performed by a 14-piece ensemble, and a 1977 recording from Wesleyan University, performed by a 43-piece orchestra. Roaratorio is proud to present the first commercially available release of this eerie, beautiful, and important Oliveros work. Cover artwork by Judith Lindbloom. Download coupon included.”

  • russian tsarlag – liquid nails – personnel

    out of stock

    Russian Tsarlag is more easily explained as the musical counterpart to the psyche of Carlos Gonzalez rather than trying to attach it to genre or make other musical comparisons. If you’ve seen Carlos perform or look over one his records you can see that he very much tries to create a new world where he truly belongs. There is humor, although bleak, and there is a certain sci-fi feel, although faded. He has been around for a while now, and has essentially been doing the same thing throughout his time in Providence, Ri as well as now in his home of Tampa, Florida. Maybe this world of music has become a bit unfashionable into the era of post-2010 music, but Carlos’ sincerity and singularity keep a devout group of followers and his status as a cult artist both growing steadily like a happy David Cronenberg-sculpted bonus organ.

    Liquid Nails is his 3rd full length LP in a long list of cassette releases and other format releases which might also be considered full-lengths. Needless to say, Carlos is a very productive artist, he also makes comic books (either Slime Freak or Steam Walkway) and creates memorable live performances which sometimes more resemble a stand up routine than a punk show. If anything he has now honed the sound of RT into something that focuses more on song and lyric: there is less noise on these recordings and much more atmosphere. The songs are simple, haunting, and have a level of pop sensibility that is slightly cracked. Essentially, you should take some time to enter into the world of Russian Tsarlag and almost all of his releases are a fine starting point, Liquid Nails being a most certainly qualified portal (just make sure the sun is down, and the lights are off).

    Limited to 200 copies with fold over xerox covers and red obi.
