Teenage Jesus And The Jerks / Live 1977-1979 / Vinyl LP / Other People / OP035
Teenage Jesus and the Jerks began to formulate their visionary brand of aural catharsis sometime during the first half of 1977, amidst the sordid ruins of a then fully down-and-out Lower Manhattan. The mastermind behind this juggernaut of sonic libertinage was a barely pubescent but world-weary runaway who called herself Lydia Lunch. Influenced strongly by the Marquis de Sade and Henry Miller, Lunch shrewdly decided to graft the existential horror of her own writing onto harsh, atonal music after being exposed to the room-clearing live output of other contemporary rock-music deconstructionists like Suicide and Mars. With an agenda of conjuring nightmarish intensity in lieu of technical instrumental ability, Teenage Jesus instantly made the supposedly “nihilistic” and “raw” current wave of so-called Punk acts sound like slick, good-timey pop music by comparison. Teenage Jesus and the Jerks were The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, lisa, She Wolf of the SS, and Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom, transliterated into a blatant mockery of the increasingly tired, basic rock-band format. Posthumously, there have been numerous reissues of the primary Teenage Jesus corpus, namely the first side of the Lydia Lunch double compilation album Hysterie (CD Presents, 1986), a very incomplete anthology titled Everything (Atavistic, 1995) and Shut Up and Bleed (Cherry Red/Atavistic, 2008), which also featured Beirut Slump tracks. These less-than-fastidious documents contained reverb-laden transcriptions of the studio cuts directly from vinyl copies, as well as random live tracks of mediocre fidelity. This particular collection about to be released on Other-People is meticulously edited and mastered from rare bootlegs taped during the initial 1977-1979 period of classic band, and only one title (Crown of Thorns from January 17,1979) has been legitimately released to date, albeit in a completely different sound quality. Almost every known Teenage Jesus and the Jerks composition appears on this compendium and Ms. Lunch herself is quite satisfied that this just might be the final nail in the coffin…. If it is the sound of deliberately organized and deployed agony you are seeking, your bath has been drawn and the razor awaits. Weasel Walter, Brooklyn, NY, June 30, 2015
Hiele Martens / Lips / Vinyl LP / Ultra Eczema / UE228
Lips pairs Roman Hiele — the ultimate Antwerp cocktail karaoke swinger — and Lieven Martens — “dad of the year“, field recordist and English teacher. This outing, the duo’s first, was recorded at the venerable electronic studios of Worm in Rotterdam and at Studio De Ziltige Olijf in central Antwerp, where the stench of salty human bulk creeps into your mouth from about a mile away. During Hiele-Martens’ few concerts one could detect and, indeed, savour a Jiskefet-like attention to detail: the correct lighting, and a sensitivity towards ‘tiny‘ sounds (such as ice cubes — shaken, not stirred — and little bells). The recordings on this LP make the ears work like they should, and they therefore require your full attention.” Full-colour sleeve — a portrait of the duo by Dennis Tyfus — plus insert.

Lettera 22 / Legacy Map / 2 x 7" Vinyl / Holidays Records / HOL-088"
"Lettera 22 is the duo of Matteo Castro and Riccardo Mazza, two main characters in the Italian noise and experimental scene, building incredible collages of field recordings and abused dynamics. The lucky few who attended their live set at the Dome in London for the Broken Flag 30th Anniversary - where they caused a speaker stack to fall over, almost setting fire to it - saw their potential unleashed and knows what we mean by saying that they have an incredible control of the multi-layered texture they produce. Physical Point is a perfect demonstration of this skill, where the pair builds up a simmering tension made of captured sounds and hissing tapes, keeping a grip on it with the cold blood of a snake charmer. Edition of 200 copies." -Holidays."
Grisha Shakhnes / Leave/Trace / Vinyl LP / Glistening Examples / GLEX-1301
Debut LP of Grisha Shakhnes. Formerly operating under the name of Mites, Shakhnes has been recording and performing in Tel Avi, Israel since 2008. His work has been issued both privately in limited handmade CD-R editions, and internationally though Alamut Records (Jerusalem), Mystery Sea (Belgium), and Copy For Your Records (NYC). Consider ‘leave/trace’ a graduation ceremony, as Shakhnes steps away from pseudonymity and into the bright lights of his own exceptional music. “leave/trace” offers a compelling display of musical abstraction, blending field recordings from peculiar and mundane origins into sumptuously detailed and surreally original new forms. Shakhnes is deftly able to capture and juxtapose otherwise overlooked details of commonplace events, placing his work at the fulcrum of contemporary tape music. Never overly literal, “leave/trace” instead allows the listener to find their own way through its compositions, granting rich reward for those willing to make the journey. “This is unquestionably Grisha’s most convincing statement to date, and one which cements him in the frontline of artists to watch as the year unfolds. A fabulous LP.” - Graham Lambkin, KYE Records.

Korea Undok Group, Sargasso Sea, Purple Circles / Korea Undok Group / Vinyl LP / Penultimate Press / PP24
After a run of extremely under the radar cassette releases, Penultimate Press is proud to present the first vinyl collection of works by the Winnipeg (Canada) outfit Korea Undok Group. With more hiss than a valley of snakes the various monikers here cover the gamut of contemporary practice traversing industrial decay, rhythmic pulse onwards to piano etudes and fractured possession. All these forms come debossed with the signature destroyed tape aesthetic which makes these sharks so lonely. 180 gram vinyl on beautiful reverse board sleeve with passport style booklet all designed by KUG. This is a package that befits this unique scene of one, or many.
Karies / Karies / 12" Vinyl / Harbinger Sound / harbinger160"
Stuttgart's Karies produce four new tracks of that brooding, but driving post-punk sound they're known for throughout Germany. Even though the material may reference the likes of Die Haut and the Abwarts , and even touching on The Wipers at points. Karies constantly reframe that sound and keep it very much retro free. These are the last group recordings to feature Kevin Kuhn who had to go fulltime with his other band - Die Nerven. This UK edition of the EP is housed in a gorgeous gatefold sleeve and is limited to 300 copies on Harbinger Sound. A new album will follow in the fall.
Ernstalbrecht Stiebler / Kanon/Torsi / Vinyl LP / Edition Telemark / 628.06
Ernstalbrecht Stiebler (b. 1934) is a German composer of minimalist and reductionist contemporary music. His name is still most closely associated with his long-time position as radio editor and producer for New Music at the Hessian Broadcasting Corporation (Hessischer Rundfunk), but his own compositional oeuvre – beginning in 1955 and continuing until now – has in the recent years attracted more attention with various concerts and several releases. Having attended the Darmstadt International Summer Courses for New Music from 1958 onwards, Stiebler decided in 1963 to leave serial music behind and instead opt for his own reductionist style built on minimalist structures and repetitions, though not in any way related to the so-called Minimal Music but rather influenced by Minimalism in visual art. In terms of composers of his time, the closest stylistic relationship that could be drawn is that to Morton Feldman. Stiebler's approach is best summarized in his own words: "Music is too important to burden it with emotions." This LP pairs two organ-based works: "Kanon" (1980) for organ, electric organ and wind instruments, and "Torsi" (2002) for organ in three movements: "Torso", "Organa minima" and "Cantus". The latter recording, made at St. Stephen's Church in Konstanz (organ: Hans-Peter Schulz), was previously released on CD by m=minimal. "Kanon" is so far unreleased. Edition of 300 in gate-fold sleeve including an extensive interview conducted by Jens Strüver about Stiebler's compositional views and techniques."

Lieven Martens Moana / Idylls / Vinyl LP, Art Book / Pacific City Sound Visions / PCSV39
Limited to 500 copies. Recorded over a few years in Antwerp and Tokashikijima. “After two sold out concerts in Tokyo and Osaka, we treat ourselves on a trip to Okinawa and the Ryukyu Islands. After spending a little time in the main city of Naha we took a ferry to Tokashikijima, a small island surrounded by coral reefs, mother-of- pearl farms and infested by an aggressive and poisonous snake. Aharen, a classic small beach town stuck in a fabricated memory of 80’s surf movies, was to be our home for just a few days. While walking through its snake infested bush and through its lagoon, while photographing, the Tombeau De Robert Louis Stevenson, a composition I was hinting at in live environments, became reality inside a patchwork of history, of coral reefs. While walking on the beach, more or less solitary since tourist season was just a few months away, while listening to the gorgeous sound of a small motoric fishing boat working on the reef – an ever-pleasing sound -, and to beautiful synthesized steel drum music coming from the local junior school. In the end the piece became so simple, an almost clinical exhibition of sound, that it became a difficult world entangled in meaning. Like a coral reef that is so pretty, yet dangerous, vibrant, endangered, complex, slow, fast, all at the same time. (…) Since I already figured out how to present my idylls – in a possible dark sense of the word – in the various forms, presented as a storytelling collection in four parts. Being a portrait (which could be a secretive self-portrait), a comment on ethnography, an exotic illustration and a ritual. The latter used in the most mundane sense ever, since I’d like to stay far away from a sensational bubblegum approach to (religious) pseudo-ethnography, to the copying of ethnic behaviour, or to approaching it as something odd or weird. These behaviourisms unavoidably invoke the end of all rituals, thus making the world a duller place.”
Keiji Haino, Jim O'Rourke, Oren Ambarchi / I Wonder If You Noticed ”I’m Sorry” Is Such A Lovely Sound It Keeps Things From Getting Worse / 2 x Vinyl LP / Black Truffle /  BT021
The remarkable series of releases from the trio of Keiji Haino, Jim O’Rourke and Oren Ambarchi continues with "I wonder if you noticed "I'm sorry" Is such a lovely sound It keeps things from getting worse", which presents the entirety of an 80 minute set performed at Tokyo’s SuperDeluxe in March 2014. Where their 2012 performance (BT011 and BT012) was divided into two releases, one continuing their exploration of the guitar/bass/drums power trio format and the other emphasizing new instrumental configurations, the single extended performance presented here ranges widely over terrain both new and familiar, from acoustic strings and collective chants to thunderous power trio moves. Throughout all of its transformations, the music here is some of the riskiest and most abstract the trio have yet committed to record. Beginning with chiming percussion reminiscent of Haino’s classic Tenshi No Gijinka, the first side is dominated by Haino’s impassioned vocals and performance on the bulgari, a traditional Turkish string instrument. Together with the woozy, sliding foundation of O’Rourke FX-laden bass and Ambarchi’s ritualistic percussion, the trio craft a sort of epic, abstracted song that moves through its spontaneous episodes with all of the fluidity of the best free improvisation. After a haunting passage in which Haino’s voice, descending from angelic high notes to guttural growls, is accompanied only by O’Rourke’s roaming bass, Haino turns to electronics, gradually building a thick cloud of cosmic sludge as Ambarchi’s drumming goes into free fall. The end of the second side presents a special treat: Haino’s first recorded outing on the contrabass harmonica, from which he coaxes bizarre, wheezing textures against a backdrop of spacious bass and percussion. When Haino eventually picks up the guitar midway through the epic performance, the spaciousness and sense of volatility remain, with the trio often moving in an instant from crescendos of ecstatic noise to near-silence. O’Rourke and Ambarchi rarely adopt here the classic rock roles essayed on earlier releases. O’Rourke’s bass, which takes centre stage surprisingly often, is sometimes so heavily processed by his array of pedals that it becomes a shifting electronic mass; at other times his roving chromaticism suggests a sort of fuzzed-out free jazz. Ambarchi spends much of the set exploring areas of tumbling free pulse; and even when he locks into a constantly repeated figure on the set’s third side, he gestures as much toward Ronald Shannon Jackson’s stuttering marching band funk as toward any classic rock moves. When the trio finally move in the final quarter of the performance into an extended passage of rock riffing, the payoff is immense, as they craft a thudding one-chord epic reminiscent of some of the early Fushitsusha classics, before Haino returns to the bulgari, bringing the set back to where it began. Continuing to explore new instrumental and dynamic possibilities while remaining grounded in the trio’s previous work, this set also brings with it a unique pleasure for the non-Japonophone listener: for the first time Haino sings many of his metaphysically brooding lyrics in English.

Ghedalia Tazartes / Hystérie Off Music / Vinyl LP / Holidays Records / HOL074
At the beginning, Hystérie off Music was conceived as a catalogue record, an open field where the author could play with all musical genres and their stereotypes, but then evolved rapidly into an uncompromising clash of field recordings, sampled instruments and Tazartès' incomparable vocal eclecticism, made of emotional psalms and shamanic hymns. The Encyclopédie of genres turns into a childish - and sometimes scary - play and the song titles mislead the listener introducing him to a completely new classification. Recorded in early 2000s and released on CD in 2007 by the French label Jardin au Fou, it's now available in a remastered vinyl version - with an excellent cut made by SST in Frankfurt - for the best listening experience of this cinematic electronic collage. A true movie for the ear. Released on Holidays Records in a limited edition of 350 copies on black vinyl.

Tom James Scott / Hilldrop / 12" Vinyl / Skire / skr06"
Following on from the sun-bleached, decayed atmospheres of Scott's previous 2016 release The Carousel (SKR05), Hilldrop brings together four pieces for piano, FM synth, finger cymbals, autoharp, and clock chime. Recorded in different domestic settings between 2011 and 2016, the four tracks vary in structure and intensity, yet remain united by a common sense of stillness and a lightness of touch familiar to much of Scott's solo and collaborative work. Originally planned as a double 7”, Hilldrop is presented here as a single 12” cut at 45rpm and comes packaged in brown paper inner sleeves with a hand finished wrap-around cover designed by Tom Scott. Composed and recorded by Tom Scott. Autoharp on Dewpoint played by Kristina Liulia. Mastered by Sean McCann. Edition of 150 copies.

Hans Rudolf Zeller / Hans Rudolf Zeller / Vinyl LP / Edition Telemark / 314.04
Hans Rudolf Zeller (b. 1934 in Berlin) is best-known for being a music theorist, essayist and writer on contemporary music. His essays on Dieter Schnebel, Iannis Xenakis, microtonality etc., often published in the German journal "Musik-Konzepte", are deemed being among the best ever written on new music. Apart from that, he has since the 1960s maintained his own artistic work, most of which has not been published or only seen the light of day in private micro-editions. Zeller's work often involves combining multiple dimensions (texts, vocals, visual projections) into one cinematological literature. This LP edition is an attempt at collecting various elements of Zeller's work. All recordings have been made within the last 10 years, yet many of the underlying concepts date back to the 1960s or 1970s. Contained are two scriptophonies (works combining writing and vocals, with the notion of writing being extended in ways not unlike those Carlfriedrich Claus and Gerhard Rühm have shown), two vocal improvisations, one piece of Tesa sounds (sounds produced by adhesive tape), and one piece for horn. The full-color sleeve and inner sleeve show Tesa pictures made between 1961 and 1970, and one collage from 2010. There is one insert with detailed liner notes by Zeller in German and English, and another insert showing a relic of a scriptophony. Edition of 300."
The New Blockaders, ARTBREAKHOTEL / Haikagura / 2 x CD, Box Set /  Art Into life / AIL002
(This album has been designed to be played as loudly as possible). Rusting metal junk, discarded as trash by a world that saw no value in it, but when filled with blood, flesh and bone it can be transformed into potent sources of energy. Those chunks of energy are designed to rouse once more our savage souls, to drag us out of our comfortable everyday reality into an imaginary world. TNB present us with a choking, vacuum-like, hermetically sealed space where you utterly lose touch with your senses, whereas ABH dwell with our senses then push them towards freedom. The cover art is a classical, elegant portrait photo by Rupenus which has then been walked over and spat on by Yamada. Package consists of a long box, containing a handmade ‘objet’ card made of scrap metal (each one is different in shape and design) and a twelve-page booklet of artwork by the two musicians. Limited edition of 250.

Each copy includes an original hand printed edition etching by Timo van Luijk, attached to gorgeous handmade sleeves of thick card stock with textured debossing/rounded tabs outside sleeve construction. Released on van Luijk's Editions La Scie Dorée imprint in an edition of just 300 copies."
