Four years into PREENING's existence and the Bay Area trio hasn’t shown any signs of stagnation–they remain committed to the urge to move forward, to push themselves and their audience. Thus, the restless and relentless motion of Preening’s new 12” EP on Ever/Never Records, who also released 2018’s excellent Greasetrap Frisbee 7”. Preening sounds more than ever like no one but themselves—MAX and ALEJANDRA's duel (sic) vocals and sax/bass interplay is masterfully augmented and driven by SAM's all-hands-ondeck drumming. “Twinning” exemplifies all of these aspects, achieving a head-spinning velocity occasionally interrupted by sections that mimic drips and chimes amidst the cacophony. This is dance music for sleep-deprived geniuses and those who love them. “Rapt Fashions” demands to know “Whose body is this anyway?” And then, to drive the theme of dislocation home, the EP ends with a wigged-out “Extortion” dub mix by Andy Human (of The World / Naked Roommate / Reptoids) & Brett Eastman (Reptoids). Dragged Through The Garden proves that Preening and Ever / Never continue to deliver the goods, and then some.

Maximum Ernst - Hallmark Of A Crisis Period
Maximum Ernst
Hallmark Of A Crisis Period
LP | 2020 | US | Original (Ever / Never)
27,99 €*
Release:2020 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Five years into their long strange drip, the duo of Maximum Ernst continues to confound, perplex, confuse and refract. Foetal returns yielded guitar/drum scramble in service of improvisational incongruity and radical reimaginings of alt-world smash hits by Faust, Snatch and Easy Cure. A link with Old Master horn maestro and official NYC gem Daniel Carter emerged and soon thereafter a CD and live cassette popped a few eardrums just right, so tight. Further uncharted territories were conquered and liberated as Maximum Ernst furiously and fitfully would-shedded. Woodn’t you? Quit playing. That was the advice of one medical doctor and also a licensed quantum mathematician; but still the daft, disappearing duo of Maximum Ernst gestured, rudely, NAY and thus, this newest release finds itself in your hands, begging for a vigorous clean.
Al Karpenter - If We Can't Dream, They Can't Sleep
Al Karpenter
If We Can't Dream, They Can't Sleep
LP | 2020 | US | Original (Ever / Never)
27,99 €*
Release:2020 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Strange connections—Bilbao meets Japan via Berlin on a record that will put you in a constant state of WTF. ASMR rock? Post-internet punk? A political manifesto in times of generalized madness? After his acclaimed 2017 destructo-punk single on Munster Records, AL KARPENTER now delivers his mature, complex debut LP on the world's premier record label for adults, New York City's Ever / Never. Al Karpenter is an elusive figure. On this record, he comes off like "Che" Guevara fronting Suicide in the year 2020: In halting, quivering tones, he warns us not to fall asleep, even as he slips into a dream state; he reminds us that we must not give up hope even in these times of collective self-destruction; then he shakes our very core with an agonizing scream. There is no resignation, no giving-up, and no mourning for a lost future in his work. Instead, Al Karpenter pits the burning energy of the present moment against older underground musical forms, playing things "wrong" as a technique for exposing the fundamental wrongness of consensus reality. His record is a puzzle, a conundrum, at once conflictive and erotic, violent and beautiful. Yellow Green Red's Matt Korvette described Al's debut single as ”Very deconstructed and cuckoo, as if one of Fushitsusha’s psychic jams was condensed into a couple minutes of indigestion"—a perceptive appraisal, seeing as Al is now joined by time-bending drummer and percussionist SEIJIRO MURAYAMA, whose early credits include Fushitsusha’s Double Live. Further strange connections include key players from Bilbao's exploratory music scene—drummer JOXEANN RIVAS of Bilbao's demolition unit KILLERKUME, experimentalists MARIA SECO and MATTIN—alongside the legendary CHIE MUKAI of Japan's CHE-SHIZU and the seminal East Bionic Symphonia school of improvised music. Tying it all together everything are the lucid sexophone and electronics of LUCIO CAPECE.

LP | 2019 | US | Original (Ever / Never)

Release:2019 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
It only took 23 years but the first long-playing record by THE CHINESE RESTAURANTS is finally here. The Chinese Restaurants is the long-term partnership founded in 1996 by artists LF RESTAURANT (aka RICHARD PAPIERCUTS) and KEITH RESTAURANT. The duo follows three core principles: (1) Never rehearse; (2) Never discuss what you do; (3) Never do the same thing twice. Over the years, LF and Keith have performed with a revolving cast of friends and fellow players, including erstwhile members of Broken Talent, Country Teasers, Billy Baod and Rocket No. 9. Instant Music is a concise monograph of the project’s many facets and contradictions, spanning free improvisation, reductionism, Third Stream, primitive rock, punk aesthetics, non-cochlear sound, plastic soul, and ASMR hypnotics in just under 30 minutes. The six-song LP was conceived, recorded, and mixed over three days in the group's spiritual home of Bridgeport, Connecticut, where they were joined by longtime friend and associate MALCOLM RESTAURANT and jazz reedsman ERIK ELLIGERS. The tracks apparently consist of spontaneously composed first takes, overlaid with improvised overdubs and mixed in a single afternoon. The only previously performed song on the record is "LFO," a rudimentary blues that first entered the band's repertoire in 1997 and is here given an expansive treatment in the style of Philip Cohran or the 1970s Arkestra. The record comes packaged is an exquisite gatefold that offers clues to the Restaurants' process and their queasy, unsublimated relationship with visual art. Limited edition, one-time pressing of 200 copies.

Last year, as a co-headlining tour of Europe commenced, a pact was proposed. What if there was a spontaneous in-studio merger between the deadpan deconstructionists of England’s singular THE REBEL and Austin post-punk aggregate SPRAY PAINT? In the tradition of the finest Marvel Comics team-ups, this 12” EP, known to the world as Charles’ And Roy’s Purple Wang, came to exist. C & R’s Purple Wang EP features tour n-jokes and astute observations getting wrangled into impressive songscapes, such as on “Look! Air Innit?” which pulses with a startling immediacy and unexpected intensity. Throbbing synth tickle features prominently on this opening salvo. “Moron Water” splashes around until it settles into an impatient groove, while “Space Ghettos” and “Heads On Spikes” hew closer to The Rebel’s brand of cheap keyboard dementia. “Mitch, Mitch, Mitch (Huntsman Reaction)” most closely echoes Spray Paint’s patented paranoid jams featuring their distinctive guitar clash. “MES OBVS” is a sideways tribute to an iconic figure who still managed to be as slippery as quicksilver. Wallers has always had a way with a title, and the deliciously-named “Let Me Hit Whitney Houston’s Last Joint” revisits the kick-off track and has an unmistakable Country Teasers piss rivulet running right through it—snatches of piano and some fever dream’s idea of what country & western music sounds like in the waiting room for Purgatory.
