  • celestrial stairway – psychic sound recordings

    $16.00 Add to cart

    In a much more playful vein then previous ISAM releases, I’m excited to present the Celestrial Stairway LP.
    Recorded by Sam Jones for the Inspired School of Astral Music and beautifully mastered by Timothy Stollenwerk at Stereophonic Mastering, this is a very different direction for ISAM. Along the same lines of the Dreams and Ambitions cassette, the 5 compositions that make up this recording were recorded live with no overdubs and represent a more lively, melodic and full stereo sound. Ascend the Celestrial Stairway.

    4 Color Screen Printed Covers
    Comes with Celestrial Stairway Liner Notes
    Limited to 220 Copies
    Psychic Sounds Release Number 8


  • roy montgomery – 324 E. 13th Street #7 – yellow electric

    $26.00 Add to cart

    Ive been a big Roy Montgomery fan for a while now and Id actually been listening to the cd version of this lp in my car a good bit this past winter. The length and breadth of winter being well augmented by the sounds of roy montgomery.
    So it was a good surprise to see this being reissued.
    Put out by Grouper/Liz Harris’s Yellow electric imprint; in fact the only lp not by grouper issued by that label. That alone should tell you that this worth checking out.
    I myself was pretty enamored with Scenes from the South Island and Winter Songs and took a little longer to get into this collection. But this collection is slow burn, dark at times but much like grouper’s recordings there is light in the darkness.

    “‘Ten singles and two albums. At a certain point during my stay in the apartment on 13th Street I either said it to myself or said it out loud — I can’t recall — but that seemed a realistic target all things considered. Few distractions, few visitors, few appointments. A busy city to break up the endless music looping in my head long after the headphones had been taken off. A micro-studio easily patched together and able to be configured in only one or two variations. Time to pay some dues. Both to the 45 single and the concept album. The small vinyl artefact that fed my musical appetite at key times in my life. No ‘b” sides if it could be helped. Chasing a theme for as long as it took. Waiting for the real pattern to emerge. The perfect visual ratios of 7″ and 12″ cover art. Talking with the dead. Replying to the faded parsimony of a young fan and would-be maker of records (me): “Get it down now because this may be as good as it gets,” “Don’t wait for a real label to pay for your studio time,” “Time spent recording should always at least match time spent playing live.” I figured that the universal average for bands and recording artists was one, maybe two, good singles and an OK album then oblivion or, worse, a slow decline through contractual obligations. The only contract I had was with a scattering of friends, mostly American, who were there to deal with the out-pourings, should they arrive. And things had bottled up. Time to un-bottle. Not all at once. A few minutes at a time only for the intense stuff. Handing over bracketed ideas to this or that label as an act of faith. Then watching in awe as others transformed signals into objects. And here, running full circle in the literal sense, seven goes into 12 many times, with folk new and old keeping the faith. Lucky me.’ -Roy Montgomery. Housed in a gatefold sleeve. Includes three new songs, new artwork and unpublished photos, and an insert with an updated intro by Bill Meyer and Roy Montgomery. Remastered by Timothy Stollenwerk.”
