Die Like A Dog Quartet / Aoyama Crows / Vinyl LP / Jazzwerkstatt / JW10060
The fourth and last album by Peter Brotzmann's fiercesome Die Like A Dog quartet, originally released on CD by FMP and released here for the first time on vinyl. The chemistry Brotzmann, Parker and Drake have as a trio is significantly altered when they are joined by Toshinori Kondo to form Die Like a Dog Quartet. Kondo's electronically altered trumpet adds a surreal iridescence to the molten energy the trio achieves on its own. On Aoyama Crows, recorded at the 1999 Total Music Meeting in Berlin, Kondo occasionally lends the proceedings a gritty '70s-vintage Milesian flavor; but far more often than not, Kondo's ricocheting smears and blasts have no jazz antecedent whatsoever. Conversely, Kondo's presence tends to prod Brotzmann toward mournful chant and work-song-related thematic fragments that countervail the infinite skittering of Kondo's digitally delayed textures, which is the case deep in this gripping set.

Lost Domain, The / An Unnatural Act / Vinyl LP / Negative Guest List Records / NGL035
"What you do.... You take what you have....a resonator guitar, a mandolin, 3 fuzz boxes, a 5 watt valve amplifier, a 44 gallon drum, some old records....and you acquire a 3-in-1 home stereo with dual tape decks with record and overdub functions....and you tap into what you’ve been listening to, what you’ve been living your whole life, a stream running free through pre-war blues, songsters and saints....and you feel it when you’re sober even, and you do it when you’re fall down drunk....and somehow, over a couple of tumbledown, turnaround months in 1990 you commit An Unnatural Act. And it contains both kind of breakdowns, it has stolen voices, a cover (sort of), a love song, a piece by Samuel Beckett, sensitive feedback, a back beat, insensitive jokes, the sound of losing it, a tribute, a debt being paid in part, a groove found, an entirety. And it’s more noise than you can bear. And it’s deeper and bluer than you can feel. And you know it won’t come this way again.""

AMM / Ammmusic / Vinyl LP / Black Truffle / BT018
Black Truffle is honoured to present the first vinyl reissue of the classic debut album from AMM, AMMMusic. Coinciding with the 50th anniversary of its recording in 1966, this reissue makes one of the cornerstones of the experimental music tradition available again in its original form, replete with Keith Rowe’s beautiful pop art cover and the terse aphorisms by the group that served as its original liner notes. A testament to the interaction between the experimental avant-garde and the countercultural underground, the album was originally released on Elektra, recorded by Jac Holzman (the label’s founder, responsible for signing The Doors, Love, and The Stooges) and produced by DNA, a group that included Pink Floyd‘s first manager Peter Jenner. (Pink Floyd paid tribute to AMM’s influence on their improvisational sensibility with the track ‘Flaming’ on their debut album, named after the piece that occupies AMMMusic’s first side, ‘Later During a Flaming Riviera Sunset’). Formed in 1965 by three players from the emerging British jazz avant-garde – Keith Rowe and Lou Gare had played with the great progressive big band leader Mike Westbrook and Eddie Prévost played in a post-bop group with Gare – AMM quickly evolved from a free jazz group into something decidedly more difficult to categorise. By the time these recordings were made, two more members had joined the group: another Westbrook associate, Lawrence Sheaf, and the radical composer Cornelius Cardew. Then at work on his masterpiece of graphic notation Treatise, Cardew brought with him extensive experience of the post-serialist and Cageian currents in contemporary composition. Using a combination of conventional instruments and unconventional methods of sound production (most famously Keith Rowe’s prepared tabletop guitar, but also prepared piano and transistor radio), the group performed improvised pieces often running for over two hours and ranging from extended periods of silence to terrifying cacophonies. Evan Parker famously described the improvisational logic of AMM’s music as ‘laminal’, in contrast to the ‘atomistic’ approach more common among the generation of British improvisers (Bailey, Rutherford, Stevens and co.) to which he himself belonged. AMM improvised in layers: layers of sound subtly rising and falling or abruptly starting and stopping without being propelled by the implied pulse of free jazz improvisation. Rather than a pulse, AMM’s music began with the sound of the room in which it was played, the Cageian anarchy of silence. By embracing the non-synchronous simultaneity of layered sound, AMM was able to create a musical container into which nearly anything could be incorporated at any moment: on AMMMusic, long tones sit next to abrasive thuds, the howl of uncontrolled feedback accompanies Cardew’s purposeful piano chords, radios beam in snatches of orchestral music (and, on the LP’s second side, an extended fragment of ‘Mockingbird’). AMM’s clearest break with jazz-based improvisation concerned the idea of individuality. Where improvised music has tended to foster the development of idiosyncratic stylists who move freely from one group to another, AMM, initially through an engagement with eastern philosophy and mysticism and later though a politicized communitarianism, sought to develop a collective sonic identity in which individual contributions could barely be discerned. In the performances captured on AMMMusic the use of numerous auxiliary instruments and devices, including radios played by three members of the group, contribute to the sensation that the music is composed as a single monolithic object with multiple facets, rather than as an interaction between five distinct voices. – Francis Plagne Remastered and cut by Rashad Becker at D&M Berlin and presented in an exact replica sleeve of the original 1966 release by Stephen O’Malley.

Miaux / Above The High Rays / Cassette / Ultra Eczema / Ultra Eczema 196
Tears seem to have made sufficient space for a shy smile on Miaux's latest audio massage, although the general mood remains that of being ”alone in a bar at 6am while the cleaner politely asks you to put your feet up, like all the other furniture“. Let's keep things simple and clear, like in Sarajevo: A and B are the same on this cassette; the audio was created as a soundtrack for a screening of René Clair's silent movie Paris Qui Dort from 1923. Miaux must have been younger than her wild child is right now. Being woken up with Tubular Bells daily as a child instead of the ringtone that seems to be stuck in Antwerp cathedral certainly made its mark… Instead of playing with talking dolls everyday, Miaux had to drill for gold to procure a bowl of Balkan soup, resulting in the beauty her destroyed hands push out of these keys!

Richard Rupenus & Nobuo Yamada / 81/44 / Vinyl LP / Art Into Life / AIL011
Mastered by Lily Vice at Sacred Lust Studio. Side A: 20% heavily armed with random discharges of radio-wave theatre and metal noise. Multiple blows with a heavy hatchet along the time axis, but no blood flows. From the speakers, the right and left wing exchange blows but reconciliation remains eternally unreachable. Steeped in idle repetition in a comfortably heated secret chamber. With several random passers-by, sounds like those made by slapping a wet towel alternate between life and death but in a continual state of existence. However, it was all meaningless. Side B: Misshapen metal objects roll around randomly, 100% liberated in their movement. Junk noise flies about in every direction, howling at distant objects, wildly spasming, rolling around on the floor, having sudden heart failures, and constantly apologizing for its own violent impulses. Yes, finally the expression of those capricious modulations begins to show its charm, and losing none of its freshness rusted fragments fly up into the air in Japan and the UK. Handmade jacket consisting of a decorated transparent acrylic sheet (each one is different). The background color changes according to the light conditions. Limited edition of 150. Art Into Life.

Marcia Bassett, Samara Lubelski / 110 Livingston / Vinyl LP / Golden Lab Records / ROWF47
"Marcia Bassett (Double Leopards, Zaïmph) and Samara Lubelski return with 110 Livingston. This is the second album from this weighty pairing of two of Americas most audacious psychedelic drone proponents, following the stunning Sunday Night, Sunday Afternoon, released in 2012 on Graham Lambkins label Kye. Bassetts guitar processing squashes otherwise raging howls into densely packed tones of feedback wail, and blends with Lubelskis long violin voyages into the drone zone to form a combination thats wondrous to behold. One side-long trip and three shorter but nevertheless expansive explorations of black magic meditation. 140-gram vinyl presented in a matte sleeve and limited to 250 copies." - Golden Lab."
