Hisato Higuchi - She
Hisato Higuchi
LP | 2003 | US | Reissue (Family Vineyard)
23,99 €*
Release:2003 / US – Reissue
Genre:Rock / Indie
An expanded reissue of Japanese musician Hisato Higuchi'sstartling debut. When 'She' was self-released in 2003, Higuchihad been writing and performing his style of "Tokyo laborer'sblues" for a decade. The delicate song textures of 'She'capture the utter feeling of loneliness and a sleep-deprivedmind staring off into a blurry urban night sky. As David Keenanwrote in The Wire, the music is "assembled from pedaling shapesof wraithlike guitar, blasted, genderless vocals and thin filmsof digital electronics and fuzz".

Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
As live albums go, Tashi Dorji and Tyler Damon nail it down. No matter the crowd --head thrashers, Instagram zombies, shaken jazzniks -- the shadow lines of feedbackand bombastic percussive bombs are always at peak intensity. Through telepathicengagement the Bhutanese-born guitarist Dorji and Midwestern drummer Damon actwith one-mind destruction as Leave No Trace: Live In St. Louis perfectly captures. It'sa pure sound for these disruptive, politically tumultuous times. Or Marc Master'sdescribes it as, a power lurching at you "in ways that feel dangerously uncontrolled,like someone playing with a plugged-in toaster over a filled-up bathtub." Leave NoTrace -- a companion release to their hyper-acclaimed debut Both Will Escape -- wasrecorded at Gaslight in St. Louis. The 500-edition LP features jacket designed by thehand/razor of Jeremy Kannapell; comes with a download coupon. RIYL Sun City Girls,75 Dollar Bill, Sonny Sharrock, Six Organs of Admittance

In the years 1978 to 1981, Robert Crotty would show up on Loren Connors'doorstep in New Haven, Connecticut with his tiny, almost toy guitar. The twowould then spend hours playing acoustic blues, the likes of which was absolutelystaggering in its truthfulness. "Robert Crotty with Me: Loren's Collection (1979-1987)" is the first anthology of the late bluesman's work, as selected by Connors, hisformer playing partner and avant blues master. These are the unheard tapes ofCrotty and Connors communing with the spirits of Delta and County Blues throughtheir own revisions of standards and tingle-inducing improvisations. These also someof the Connors' earliest available recordings showing the development of hisiconoclast guitar style and vocal moan. Crotty was a New Haven lifer and linchpin ofthe region's blues scene yet, he never achieved much recognition outside local barsand house parties - until now. The album features never before heard recordings,unseen photos, liner notes by Connors and Crotty's brother plus a bonus CD: thefirst-time reissue of Crotty's ultra rare sole LP "Robert Crotty Blues" and 7-inch --both released on Connors' private St. Joan imprint in the late 1980s

Tashi Dorji & Tyler Damon
Both Will Escape
LP | 2016 | US | Original (Family Vineyard)
20,99 €*
Release:2016 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Both Will Escape is the debut full length between electric guitarist Tashi Dorji and percussionist Tyler Damon. In the long tradition of string/drum duets -- from Bailey & Bennink to Haino & Yoshida -- these two cleave out their own unmapped continent of sound. In four pieces they connect lashes of ecstatic intensity and outer reaches of texture and timbre. At times Dorji’s brutal electric torrents meld into Damon’s metal and tonal abstractions. These two developed in parallel for years before forging an ongoing duo in 2015. Dorji has released a string of startling acoustic albums that’ve rescrambled six-string notions of jazz/improv/ Flamenco. Damon’s rethink of overtone and rhythm is enraptured as it’s stupefying in solo exhibitions or with Darin Gray, Mars Williams and Thee Open Sex. Both Will Escape was recorded recorded by Patrick Kukucka at the Hi Z lo z Studio in Asheville, NC and mixed by John Dawson at Magnetic South. Tashi Dorji’s guitar playing has been widely heralded in wake of releases on Ben Chasny’s Hermit Hut, Feeding Tube and MIE. One time pressing of 500 LPs with download code.

The Departing Of A Dream, Volume VI
10" | 2016 | US | Original (Family Vineyard)
15,29 €* 16,99 € -10%
Release:2016 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Connors was on the cover of THE WIRE for July’s issue. He is an avant-garde legend, his singular alien take on the blues is considered on par with John Fahey’s rewrite of American string music. Connors’ previous vinyl releases for Family Vineyard quickly sold out. Just months after reviving The Departing of a Dream series from a ten-year hiatus -- Loren Connors issues another movement of saturated guitar tones, dissonance and impermanence. Volume Six begins with the percussive sound of struck, muted strings -- an unusually rhythmic effect for one of Connors solo recordings, writes Kurt Gottschalk in The Wire. But from there, Connors’ guitar notes morph into gentle wisps of guitar sounds -- or as Connors himself describes: “just like the wind scattering the notes around.” One-time edition of 500 copies, includes download coupon.
