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.
Elodie / Grisailles / Vinyl LP / La Scie Doree / Scie 1516
Stunning new LP from Elodie (Andrew Chalk and Timo van Luijk duo project).

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."

Argo / Flüchtige Musik / Fluchtige Music / 2 x Vinyl LP / Edition Telemark / 628.03
The trio Argo was formed in Darmstadt in 1985 by Hans Essel (violin), Marit Hoffmann (viola), and Thomas Stett (clarinet). It existed until 2016 when it was forced to an end by the untimely death of Stett. Argo set out to explore new ways of free collective improvisation that were aimed neither at personal expressivity nor at the evocation of a certain mood or atmosphere. Eschewing any compositional agreements, they experimented with musical forms and processes that emerged spontaneously between the poles of the players' individual lines of improvisation. They played with fleeting objects of sound and transformations, inflections, and disruptions of those objects. Unexpected noises that could arise at any time required and provoked fast reactions of the players. Argo utilized three classical instruments without any preparations but over time developed an augmented range of sound generation techniques on these instruments. Their playing bears almost no traces of tonality, harmony, or rhythm. The title of this edition, "Flüchtige Musik", translates as "fleeting music" or "transient music". The double LP collects recordings made mostly live between 1987 and 2013. The first recording still shows traces of classical sound material but also includes other sound generators like styrofoam and cardboard that were left out later. Already in 1991, Argo had settled on using the three instruments exclusively but with a new range of sounds that can be heard throughout the subsequent recordings. On a few occasions, Argo transferred their concept to experiments with their own speaking voices. This led to "Flüchtige Wörter" ("fleeting words"), one recording of which is also included. Double LP in gate-fold sleeve with black poly-lined inner sleeves. Edition of 300. Edition Telemark."

Factrix, Control Unit / Elegy For Rusted Souls / Vinyl LP plus 7" Vinyl / Backwards / BW008, BW008-7"
Return of the legendary FACTRIX together with new cult hero CONTROL UNIT! After their last release from 1982, the seminal "California Babylon", San Francisco industrial pioneers Factrix are back with a new studio album, recorded together with Italian duo Control Unit (whose critically acclaimed debut "The Fugitives" was released on Backwards last year). The quartet formed by Bond Bergland, Cole Palme, Silvia Kastel and Ninni Morgia moulds a new language of industrial music with guitars, bass and electronics, resulting in a fusion of acoustic and electric elements, primitive rhythms patterns and even blues. On top sits the ghostly, sexy, no-waveish voice of Silvia Kastel. The collaboration started during Control Unit's US tour; Factrix attended one of their shows and were so enthusiastic that they invited the Italian duo to record with them. The LP was recorded in Spring 2012 at the Factrix studio in Berkeley, CA and later mixed by Silvia Kastel and Bond Bergland, then mastered by Scott Colburn in Seattle. Fans of classic industrial music, Throbbing Gristle, post punk, Confusion Is Sex era Sonic Youth will feel at home with this album, but it will also satisfy those who love the most extreme avantgarde experiments in music. The first pressing of the record will be accompanied by a limited edition 7" with bonus tracks. Cover artwork by Karen Constance (Blood Stereo) and an exclusive insert written by Seymour Glass (Bananafish). Graphics & layout by Backwards."
Konstrukt, Peter Brötzmann, Huseyin Ertunc,  Dogan Dogusel,  Barlas Tan Ozemek / Eklisia Sunday / Vinyl LP / Holidays Records / HOL095
Eklisia Sunday was recorded live in front of a small audience on May 15th, 2011 at Eklisia - an old chapel built in the 17th century in Gümüşlük, a small village near Bodrum. This improvisation features the Konstrukt collective - which is Korhan Futacı (tenor & soprano saxophones), Umut Çağlar (electric guitar), Özün Usta (double bass, djembe, gong, bells), Korhan Argüden (drums) - incredibly enriched by the presence of Peter Brötzmann (on tenor), Hüseyin Ertunç (acoustic piano, küstüfon, gong), Doğan Doğusel (double bass, küstüfon) and Barlas Tan Özemek (electric guitar). The result of the combination is simply marvelous, because Brötzmann's unique phrases perfectly match with the sound of what confirms to be a well-coordinated collective. "The Turkish free jazz outfit Konstrukt might be considered the most evolved improvisational band working in jazz today. Founded, not in the hotbeds of jazz, London, New York, Chicago, Wuppertal or Krakow, their isolation is the key to their success. Well, isolation and observation." -- Mark Corroto, All About Jazz. Edition of 350."

Consumer Electronics / Dollhouse Songs / Vinyl LP / Harbinger Sound / harbinger152
Punk/electro/techno-noise trio Consumer Electronics return with an album of all-new studio material, following on from last year's acclaimed "Estuary English" LP and this year's "Repetition Reinforcement" 12" on Diagonal. Housed in a sleeve featuring stunning cover artwork by Tokyo-based artist Trevor Brown, "Dollhouse Songs" further chronicles frontman Philip Best's trawl through the seedy thoroughfares of crumbling Tory Britain. "Learn Your Fucking Place" sneers Best in trademark-style, aping the austerity mongers of Britain's current right wing junta. Ably assisted on dark cracked electronics by Sarah Froelich and stunningly produced by noise/beat guru Russell Haswell, this latest instalment in CE's state-of-the-nation polemics is sure to be keenly anticipated. Featuring seven new studio tracks, 'History Of Sleepwalking', 'Knives Cut', 'Condition Of A Hole', 'Nothing Natural', 'The Push', 'Colour Climax' and 'Murder Your Masters' (the last track previously surfacing briefly as an ultra-rare gig only 7"), CE now features a twin vocal attack from the Best/Froelich husband-and-wife team, a furious tide of words spat out over a chaotic spew of mangled beats, bracing synths and state-of-the-art noise generation. This is their most personal and political album yet. Nice 180gsm vinyl too."
Embudagonn 108 / Dissection of Chronus / Vinyl LP / A Dear Girl Called Wendy / WE33
Embudagonn 108 is Wataru Kasahara, hermetic artist from Tokyo. The recording covers over 30 years. Started in 1984, continued in 1988, finished in mid 2014. Field recordings, /smashed with disturbingly electronic sounds, echoes of old instruments lost in our memories. Kasahara describes his work in these words: “My simbolism is a decorative trap. you and I are in the absurd game. This music is killed, dissected and discarded music'. White vinyls, printed labels and inner sleeve, one time limited pressing of 100 copies. Single sided LP.
Craow / Difference Between Days / Vinyl LP / Death Shadow Records / deathshadow# 003
The first of two LP re-releases of early recordings by Sean Halpin aka Craow. These recordings show a stripped down, more raw version of Halpin’s beast. Droning synths and noise are met with post-punk and industrial elements. Unconstrained by boundaries, Halpin utilizes any and all forms of experimental music to achieve a thoroughly dark and anxious atmosphere. Originally released as a limited tape on Corpse Without Soul in 2011, Death Shadow Records is pleased to present these recordings to the public again. Remastered for vinyl by J Short, this release is presented in an edition of only 100 copies.
Amelia Cuni, Werner Durand / Diasporagas / Vinyl LP / Edition Telemark / 628.02
Amelia Cuni was born in Milan and has lived in India for more than 10 years where she studied dhrupad singing with various renowned masters. Werner Durand has been performing his own music for saxophones, Iranian ney and self-made wind instruments since the late 70s. He started building his own wind instruments from plexi-glass, PVC and metal tubes in the early 80s and has performed in various groups including The Thirteenth Tribe and Armchair Traveller. For more than 20 years, Cuni and Durand have been performing together as a duo as well as in collaborations such as Tonaliens and Born Of Six. Diasporagas, sub-titled "Ancient Trends and New Traditions in Indo-European Music", summarizes their various musical projects in which her Indian raga singing met with his minimalist and experimental approach. In all of their collaborations, they have been creating unique forms and expanding the palette of their sound worlds while keeping the essence of raga music, justifying the use of the term in its original meaning. The title is meant to be understood as a statement to provoke reflections on our ideas of cultural identity vs. globalization, and tradition vs. experimentation. A central Diasporagas work is "Hiss (mastered noise)" for dhrupad singing, invented wind instruments, Indian percussion and samples of historical recordings by Indian singers. It is partly based on their earlier work "Gramophone Saraswati" which involved replicas of Luigi Russolo's Intonarumori instead of the Indian recordings. This LP includes "Hiss (mastered noise)" and two other pieces entitled "Aqua Shiva" and "Agana Song". Edition of 300 in a full-color sleeve with a printed inner sleeve reproducing the score of "Hiss (mastered noise)"."
Lacroux, Sauvage & Sauvage / Deux Déserts / Vinyl LP / Standard In-Fi / std in-fi 13

Comes with Ricoh printed history of the project, green leaflet here. Released 2015. Co-produced with Ludovic Sauvage.

"Between 1982 and 1984 Death Magazine 52 played around 20 shows mostly within the Black Country region of the U.K. Sometimes they played under the name Spontaneous Human Combustion which was the moniker they originally started out with. These recordings capture the core group and its floating membership at various stages of their existence. Recordings from the studio sessions and live sets, including playing to a school hall full of teenage girls at 3pm one afternoon, and as the final band to play at the legendary Equinox Event before the plugs got pulled and the police arrived. The recordings are of a raw nature and should be considered as historical documentation." - Harbinger Sound."

Sweat Tongue / Dark Star / Cassette / Cold Milk / No Catalogue #
A new tape by Sweat Tongue! Dark Star is their first release as a four-piece. Gijs Deddens has joined the band on based guitar, adding slippery lines of low end to their bare bones, broken down ‘no rock’ sound. The recordings on Dark Star are from their second meeting ever. As always fully improvised. It finds the group exploring new dynamics, new highs, new lows, creating some really exciting music in the process. “Sweat Tongue have become a quartet, with the addition of a bass player, but in no way they are now more conventional in their approach. They play some great no wave ‘rock’ music that defies melody, artistry, logic but sometimes it has a great rhythm, loud guitars and a great bass, while the singer moans, groans, whispers and shouts. This total free music, but one easily hears that these four people know what they are doing; this is not one of those ‘let’s pick up a guitar and see what it can do’ bands. Sweat Tongue is a great band, both in concert, but also on tape. This is their best release so far.” FdW – Vital Weekly
Marianne Nowottny / Dark Souls Need Light / Vinyl LP / Feeding Tube Records / FTR221
When Jersey teen, Marianne Nowottny, arrived on the scene in the late ’90s she had the looks of a typical NJ gum-snapper, but possessed a voice that was way beyond what you’d expect to find hanging out in the parking lot of White Castle, trying to bum cigarettes. Her vocals had the rich smoky maturity of Marianne Faithfull’s late ’70s work, hauled into an off-center bedroom pop universe that was almost impossible to decode. Her subsequent studio recordings have investigated magnificent nooks of post-naif construction, but it was in a live performance that she created some of her most staggering sonic edifices. We are very pleased to finally present two sides of her explosive and surprising avant-lounge meditations The first side was recorded at the Knitting Factory in ’99, with an improvisational trio comprised of Mark Dagley (Girls, Hi Sheriffs of Blue, etc.), Mark’s visual arts pal, the late Steven Parrino (whose work with Jutta Koether in Electrophilia was unbelievably savage) and Scott Jarvis (Workdogs, th’ Cigaretz, Half Japanese, etc.). The fully toasted coil of Marianne’s keys and voice, blends into the sound-sheets rustled up by her collusionists like an unholy meeting between one of Sun Ra’s small ensembles and Robin Crutchfield’s Dark Dark. Messy, smudged, long-format song distention with amazing shifts in tonal center and a truly crazed heft. The flip, recorded with just Dagley in ’02, is even more extreme. Built around a pummel that sounds like the L train blasting straight through Union Square Station, Marianne channels broken Simone-tones and broadcasts them into the maw of chaos. Even in those instances when she chooses to use her völk-voice the results are dastardly, with a feeling so deeply drugged it’ll make yr head heavy. If you’ve never sampled the Nowottny sound, this is a pretty amazing place to start. Don’t be afraid. She was just a kid. -Byron Coley, 2015

Desmadrados Soldados De Ventura / Clifton Park, NY Vol. 2 / Vinyl LP / Golden Lab Records / ROWF65
“Surely it is the dream of anybody who got into listening to rock music (as a passionate life changing force rather than a head nodding space filler) to learn the basics needed to play an electric guitar and just let loose with everything turned up full blast. The act is intensely invigorating, but there’s also something spiritual at work that has a life of its own – a surge of raw power that only the guitarist can control… Comparisons can be made to Glenn Branca’s guitar orchestras, The Velvet Underground’s “Sister Ray” improvisations (especially when the feedback begins to howl on the B side of Vol 1) and “Expressway To Yr Skull”-era Sonic Youth, but also to the Howling Hex Hildreth Tapes triple that Golden Lab unleashed in 2013… Far out or full on, this is the sound of rock’s past, present and future crashing together and reinventing itself.” The Wire, Nov 2015

Alec Livaditis / Clear And Cloud / Vinyl LP / Kye / Kye40
Kye is proud to announce the release of 'Clear and Cloud', the debut LP by Alec Livaditis. Recorded over the summer of 2015, 'Clear and Cloud' showcases Alec's unique vision for extended cello technique across two varying settings. Side A's 'Clear and Cloud' presents Livaditis (cello, objects) and Killick Hinds (Vo-96 guitar) live in an extraneous sound environment, where music and conversation seek to undermine each other in a morose and thrilling tussle, whereas Side B's 'Through The Open Window' finds Livaditis alongside John Kiran Fernandes (clarinets, violin) in a discrete collage of live/studio improvisations that test the elasticity of form and structure. Mastered by Jason Lescalleet at Glistening Labs, 'Clear and Cloud' arrives in a full color Lee Turner designed sleeve, in an edition of 400 copies.
