Unknown Me
Subtropics
Tape | 2017 | US | Original (Not Not Fun)
9,99 €*
Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Tokyo trip-ambient unit UNKNOWN ME make transportive vignettes with minimal means: soft-focus static, translucent loops, muted metronomes, field recordings. Comprised of DJ / producer Yakenohara, radloop label boss P-RUFF, electronic texturalist H. Takahashi (Constellation Tatsu, Where To Now?, birdFriend), and art director Osawa Yudai, the group’s sophomore offering, subtropics, furthers the fantasy Zen garden miniatures of their 2016 debut, sunday void. Whereas that collection themed itself as an innerspace voyage of domestic leisure, their latest journeys outward, a lucidly dreamed globe-trot across continents, cities, and coastlines. Dazed tones spiral gracefully against hushed backdrops of floating chimes, distant wildlife, and prismatic vapor. These are less songs than spaces, blissed synthetic bio-domes awaiting habitation. Eight illusions of worlds unrealized, pleasures UNKNOWN. Recorded from July-September, 2016. Mastered by Yakenohara. Artwork and design by Osawa Yudai (Aroe Inc.).
Magnetizer - Reality
Magnetizer
Reality
Tape | 2017 | US | Original (Not Not Fun)
9,99 €*
Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Oakland’s self-described “emotional machine funk group” Magnetizer traffic a uniquely wacked fusion of brooding cyberwave, maniacal acid, trash fire block party, and psychedelic noise, operating in relative seclusion since 2012. Captained by Jackson Blümgart aka Wormhole, the project has grown increasingly defined and dynamic, culminating in this year’s Post-Body EP for Goaty Tapes. Gunked machines and rusted artificial intelligence are harnessed and hacked into derelict body music anthems both long-form and concise, strafed with cryptic grit: alien monologues, lunatic skronk, sequencer squelch, decrepit dub. Reality furthers the vision, four blasted tunnels of claustrophobic haze, chemical groove, and mismatched cables snaking through stagnant water. Life is wasted on the living. Recorded and mixed by Wormhole in 2016. Design by Britt Brown.

Mai Mai Mai - Phi
Mai Mai Mai
Phi
Tape | 2016 | US | Original (Not Not Fun)
9,99 €*
Release:2016 / US – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Roman noise omnivore Toni Cutrone aka Mai Mai Mai names his poisonous, punishing electronic miasmas after characters of the Greek alphabet, beginning with Theta in 2013 and followed by Δέλτα (Delta) in 2014. Φ (Phi) is the third and final installment in his Mediterranean trilogy, pushing the project deeper into a vivid interzone of digital synthesis and scorched ritual. The album opens with a searing collaboration with avant-folk instrumentalist Luca Venitucca, locked into a lofty duel of distorted drones, before pivoting to a throbbing oblivion of jackhammer bass, seething feedback, and combat samples. Later passages ooze through industrial spoken word, technoid voodoo hallucination, seasick prayer loops, and nightmare exotica, assisted in places by Italian experimental percussion legend Lino Capra Vaccina (of 1970’s “golden age” groups Aktuala and Telaio Magnetico). Cutrone ascribes a degree of his maximalist tendencies to a rootless youth packed with parents through Europe and the Near East, absorbing fragments of sensation and sound, but his own decade-plus experience in the Italian underground has doubtless played a role as well. Intensity accrues, patience decays. Closure is its own reward.
Scraps - Ttnik
Scraps
Ttnik
Tape | 2016 | US | Original (Not Not Fun)
9,99 €*
Release:2016 / US – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Brisbane “dehydrated disco” producer LAURA HILL explains her faded headspace of dazed electro-wave as: “bogans in the Queensland sun—so dehydrated cause the water tastes like shit.” The latest Scraps full-length, TTNIK, draws from a persuasive moodboard of ‘80s hairdresser magazines bleaching in the desert, cubist synth-pop, and disaster fascination. Since her debut LP in 2011—on grit institution Bedroom Suck—Hill’s synthesis of raw rhythms, sequencer intuition, and echo-soaked storytelling has honed and decayed, heatwaving between low-lidded new wave, woozy acid ballads, and alienated karaoke. The eight songs of TTNIK were self-tracked at her home studio, Vibrations (so named for the paper-thin walls that rattle when trucks drive past), allowing her to indulge accident and chance and disregard pressure and polish. Inspired fatalist electronic romantica by and for freed spirits. Mixed by Chelvis. Mastered by Lawrence English.
Ssaliva - Mercury Coast
Ssaliva
Mercury Coast
Tape | 2016 | US | Original (Not Not Fun)
9,99 €*
Release:2016 / US – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Belgian shapeshifter Francois Boulanger has traversed several spheres of liquid electronics and mutated beat music across his half-decade of activity as Ssaliva, but in the winter of 2010 he holed up in an old historic house in the town where he grew up, Chaudfontaine, with a partially broken Tascam 4-track to pursue a different muse, on a different wavelength. The 22 grainy guitar instrumentals comprising Mercury Coast slide through a fractured prism of moods, reveries, daydreams, and deliriums, from paranoid surf to opiate lullaby to smeared haze and beyond. There’s a naked, intuitive feel to the songs, like sketches born from smoke and sleeplessness, tracked at strange hours. The frayed fidelity further enhances the album’s aura of cloaked emotion, altered states, and raw truth. Shortly after the sessions Boulanger and two Brussels associates, Dynoo and Nosedrip, launched a label (Surf Kill) to release the recordings but for unremembered reasons nothing materialized. NNF is honored to finally share this overlooked outlier to a wider world.

In Stone
Tape | 2015 | US | Original (Not Not Fun)
3,99 €* 9,99 € -60%
Release:2015 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Few bands perplex like San Fran riddler trio Bronze but ever fewer have managed to hatch and hone such an obliquely singular sound. The group’s third long-player, In Stone, twists and burns through eight new iterations of their classic oscillator-fusion psychedelia, inflected with shades of post-punk raga, skronk lurch, modal incantantion, deep space narcosis, lizard kingmanship, and home-wired industrial dementia. As an album, these recordings skew tenser, twitchier, a touch paranoiac, bloodshot tweakers stalking steep foggy streets. The alchemy of drummer Brian Hock, vocalist Rob Spector, and electronicist Miles Friction is always riveting in the live sphere but In Stone feels like more of a studio document, exploratory and expressionistic, full of ideas and psychic interplay. Bay Area burnout rendered as psychotropic sculptural waveforms. Confusion isn’t sex, it’s something stranger. Black tapes mastered by RUUD 66 with J-cards designed by the band..
Skeppet - Deluxe
Skeppet
Deluxe
Tape | 2015 | US | Original (Not Not Fun)
7,99 €* 9,99 € -20%
Release:2015 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Multi-instrumentalists Andreas Malm and Henrik Wallin have been triangulating a particular schematic of minimalist mantric-psychedelic instrumental music since the mid-2000s, emphasizing texture, time, and trance states. But with the exception of 2014’s Phase 3 LP, most of the group’s recordings were released as limited cassettes or vinyl in Sweden, long out of print. Skeppet Deluxe collects an assortment of these formative tracks into an hour-long mystic suite of primitivist circular sprawl. Shaping guitar, synthesizer, and percussion into fractals of FX, the ethos of Doing Less, Longer leads across varied terrain: motorik vignette, sunbleached organ vamp, drum rumble, Sky Records cruise, wah dirge, dawnbringer pop, etc. Pieces span from five to fifteen minutes; depth of repetition determines duration. As a discographical cross-section, Skeppet Deluxe revels in a vision of rustic cosmic roads and vanishing horizon lines. Of distance as illusion, and motion as meaning. Recorded from 2006-2011 in Malmö, SE. Gold metallic tapes in J-cards designed by H.
Night Court - Law & Order
Night Court
Law & Order
LP | 2015 | US | Original (Not Not Fun)
17,09 €* 18,99 € -10%
Release:2015 / US – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
The origins of these enigmatic VHS-scrambled prog-techno explorations are true and tripped. Italics ours – this is rare ore. A freaked fusion vision, flowing cold city collectivist synths interlaid with executioner guitar, ambulance/TV samples, alley haze, and flashing sirens sax. Insane music for insane times. Its meanings are manifold: political (“a sweeping overview of the nothing-specific nature of humanity via the American legal system), metaphoric (“tongue-in-cheek turns to fist-in-air, and we realize that life imitates fiction less than fiction imitates life”), realistic (“at the time of recording none of us had ever seen an entire episode Law & Order).
White Poppy - Natural Phenomena
White Poppy
Natural Phenomena
LP | 2015 | US | Original (Not Not Fun)
18,99 €*
Release:2015 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Crystal Dorval from Vancouver, Canada has been making healing, distorted rug-gaze music from a coastal mindset all her own since 2011. Natural Phenomena is her second album, and it echoes 2013’s previous self-titled effort in its isolationist origins, as the record emerged slowly across a 9-month retreat alone on a farm on Vancouver Island.
Afterhours - Post-Geography
Afterhours
Post-Geography
Tape | 2015 | US | Original (Not Not Fun)
6,99 €* 9,99 € -30%
Release:2015 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
The less we log off, the truer it is: physical space is no place. Life’s a long-form loiter in a portal, till the service is severed. Such was the headspace of MacArthur Park deep web crawler Afterhours when crafting the ten softly glowing proxy improvisations of Post-Geography. Shades of his night-trawler trip-hop and 4 AM house still seep through (“Raw Algebraic,” “Semi-Dusk Edit”) but the bulk of the album is vibrantly grid-scrambled and dissociative, randomly accessed memories Pachinko-plinking through locked skyscraper malls and neon metropolitan infrastructures; in his words, “a Memphis-designed tumor, sexless and wobbling.” The amorphousness of these pieces gives the sides a spastic yet syrupy cohesion, melting-clock beats smeared with plastic synth designs and patchworks of corrupted muzak. Everyone knows everywhere is nowhere.

Ill Winds
Ill Winds
Tape | 2014 | US | Original (Not Not Fun)
7,99 €* 9,99 € -20%
Release:2014 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Lean times trio Ill Winds play a starved, sunken, and stained vein of bleached grey rock, as much post-life as post-punk. Formed in Berlin in 2011 by Australian ex-pats Jack Dibben (guitars, voice) and JFW (bass), they soon added scrying Dutchman Marijn Degenaar (synth), infusing their chemistry with a damp, psychotropic paranoia. When decision was finally made last year to track a full-length, the Winds set up camp at a historic squat-turned-project-housing space in Berlin and enlisted old ally Olle Holmberg (aka Moon Wheel) to produce. It proved to be a wise move—the resultant recordings are impressively drained and otherworldly, almost like an early Martin Hannett production: airless, alien, that distinct lilt of echo to the drums. Dibben’s strange speak-singing exudes more of a seer’s dread in these mixes, fenced in by blank-mind basslines, stark guitar scrape and squall, and austerely hypnotic synthesizer designs. Eight beggars’ skeletons of looming psychic malaise, cold-blood concrete-wave, and detached realities. Mope springs eternal.
Swanox - Duskrunner
Swanox
Duskrunner
LP | 2014 | US | Original (Not Not Fun)
17,99 €*
Release:2014 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
A sequel of sorts to his 2010 cassette, Dawnrunner, Anthony Orion’s debut vinyl long-player is a vagrant classic of stringy-haired new age loner Americana, above and beyond anything in the Swanox public domain. Mixing personal Casio squatter meditations with crystal jukebox guitar and hitchhiker whistling over echo-smeared SK1 metronomes, Duskrunner feels hungover, spaced out, worn down, and at peace – sometimes all at once.
Rangers - Reconsider Lounge
Rangers
Reconsider Lounge
LP | 2014 | US | Original (Not Not Fun)
17,99 €*
Release:2014 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Trans-american Joe Knight's song modalities station-switch from piece to piece, spanning lonesome new wave garage (“Lauderdale Saints”), dreadlocked psych (“Clown Prince”), monorail zoo tour DVD themes (“ETV”), tight-wired Television-lensed guitar heroics (“Safety Goggles”), out across the endless airwaves. The logic of Knight’s pack-rat electric collages culture-jam as much as flow, chasing sparks, exposing irrelevancies and connective tissues. Fissured fragments of rock mythology, obscurely realized, again and again.

Regional Curse
Regional Curse
Tape | 2014 | US | Original (Not Not Fun)
6,99 €* 9,99 € -30%
Release:2014 / US – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Regional Curse is the scarred, spectral incarnation of Melbourne-by-way-of-Adelaide musician Stacey Wilson aka RITES WILD. Her instrumentation remains similar-cyclical keyboard figures, downward tracing synths, skeletal drum machinery-but the execution follows a more disembodied, ceremonial logic. Her latest collection of uneasy electronics murmurs and seethes like threatening shadows silhouetted through the blinds. Low-lit drones stalk their waveforms, unraveling into pulsing, blank dubs for unknown presences. Like all of Wilson's work, the album's five pieces move with an alluring narcolepsy, focused but foggy, drained but sentient, a spirit stranded in some serpentine purgatory of space and time. Recorded at Miracle Cure, Fairfield, Australia. Mastered by Lawrence English at 158. Red-tint tapes in collaged J-cards by the artist.
Daughters Of The Sun - Ride To Die
Daughters Of The Sun
Ride To Die
LP | 2014 | US | Original (Not Not Fun)
18,99 €*
Release:2014 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Minneapolis torn-leather psychedelicists Daughters Of The Sun cop a tripped deathless vibe on their fourth, and most far-gone, full-length, Ride To Die. Severed by distance (singer/guitarist Nick Koenigs transplanted to LA), and pulled omni-directionally by other projects (Koenigs as Filthy Huns; percussionist Bennett Johnson and multi-instrumentalist Collin Gorman Weiland in Dreamweapon), the trio transmute these tolls into seven of their best badlands kosmosis interstate benders yet taped. The disintegrated chemistry of dirt-road hunts like “Desert Grave” or “Sater’s Ghost” sounds ingrained but reborn, bruised engines re-revving to life. Highway synth rhythms flutter between motorcycle riffs and pummeling war drums, evoking landscapes harboring psychic venom, a spirit bleaching the grease-stained sand. Moments of survivor wisdom burn too – the burned lope of “Lonely At The Top,” the rainstorm techno pulsing under “Fly By,” the 4:20 fatal vision intro to “Reigns Of Iron.” As songs and textures the LP pushes past their previous recordings into some unknown wrecked horsepower zone. Debut European tour this October currently being booked; drop a line if interested in helping or participating in any fashion. Recorded in Minneapolis, MN; mastered by Sonic Boom at New Atlantis. Artwork by Collin Gorman Weiland. Edition of 400.
Maria Minerva - Histrionic
Maria Minerva
Histrionic
LP | 2014 | US | Original (Not Not Fun)
16,19 €* 17,99 € -10%
Release:2014 / US – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Histrionic is the first record that Minerva has produced in her new Brooklyn base, and has no doubt absorbed some of the city’s unavoidable influence. It certainly sports a pleasing melange of genres, and the record’s first single manages to sound both familiar and distinctly mysterious simultaneously.Entitled ‘The Beginning’, it’s not a million miles from Minerva’s previous material, but feels somewhat more confident. The production is still clattery, brusque and decidedly lo-fidelity, but Minerva’s coos sound better than ever.
Bronze - World Arena
Bronze
World Arena
LP | 2014 | US | Original (Not Not Fun)
17,09 €* 18,99 € -10%
Release:2014 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
The West Coast's weirdest hidden-treasure trio, BRONZE, has plied their molten composite of serpentine metro-gnomic drumming, oscillator raga, hash-oil free verse, and pendulum bass patterns for seven shaded years, but sonic documentation remains sparse. The new decade, thankfully, has seen them reversing this deficit, first with 2011's Copper LP, and now with World Arena, which unfolds another octagon's worth of their signature spellbound, smoke-ringed, psych-fusion explorations. Tracked at their Trojan Cavern studio / bunker in San Francisco and mastered in Amsterdam by RUUD LEKX, the record freewheels from tranced, polyrhythmic sequencer meditations ("Played," "Quality") to burnt chrome post-punk electronic experiments ("Almost") to jazzy, decadent mystery rituals ("Dulcinea," "Golden Handcuffs"). The way they weld home-wired circuitry modulation with lofty poetics and intuitive, live-band dynamics feels finessed and fully-formed--and unusually liberated in today's world-gone-solo landscape. Live, they're even more baffling, seesawing from fluid, fog-machine narratives to mesmerizing electro-modal jams, owning all zones. Future intercontinental tours should further bolster their standing in metallic arts communities. The Bronze Age is dawning. Limited to 450 copies in jackets with cut-metal photo-collage artwork by the band, plus an insert.
Afterhours - Lowlife
Afterhours
Lowlife
LP | 2014 | US | Original (Not Not Fun)
15,29 €* 16,99 € -10%
Release:2014 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
As much as Los Angeles gleams in the global mind as a gateway to dream fulfillment and televised wealth / fame amalgams, it’s equally a desert of disappointments. Hence the dead-end yoga cults, under-the-bridge tar dealers, valley burnouts, Inland Empire night-stalkers and seas of destitute Eastside lowlifes. This vibe is central to Afterhours’s languid, nocturnal musical vision, which has evolved from sleekly moody, synthesized sleepwalks to an unusually elegant hybridized trip-hop sub-species. Jammed signals sputter under broken, minor key scales; shuffling, crate-digger drum patterns give way to skeletal house rhythms (“Lovesick”), slow washes of shimmering texture (“Outcome”) and sampled, spectral jazz (“Night and Day”). Though crafted with electronic means, most of the material on Lowlife centers around acoustic, physical sounds—reverbed piano, dusty snares, crisp percussive accents, soft-focus saxophone. Fragile conjurings of urban ambience, the poetry and pulse of isolation, Staying Up Late To Make Music To Stay Up Late To—the world of Afterhours spins through the dark, en route to dawn.
Sapphire Slows - Allegoria
Sapphire Slows
Allegoria
LP | 2013 | US | Original (Not Not Fun)
14,99 €*
Release:2013 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
On her first proper full-length album, Tokyo netscape nightingale Sapphire Slows impressively expands on the spider web tone-bank nocturnes of 2011’s True Breath EP, with headier, haunted highs and eerier, elegant depths. Patiently pieced together across all of 2012 (plus change), and inspired by everything from St. Etienne’s plasticine Euro-house, obscured J-pop memories, Blue Bell Knoll and the saddest Section 25 remixes, Allegoria swirls and spirals through ten textural electronic melancholias composed in solitude.

LA Vampires with Maria Minerva
Integration LP
LP | 2012 | US | Original (Not Not Fun)
18,99 €*
Release:2012 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Collaborations reap the raddest rewards when the participants tease out the weirder and wilder geographies of their vibe-map Venn diagram, and for this reason (among others) The Integration LP is a deep achievement of mood-swing motion and freaky feminine mystique. The meshing of MARIA MINERVA's alienated pop constructs with LA VAMPIRES' degraded Byronic house births a cool niche catalog of unclassifiable style prototypes, from new wave apocalypto to teutonic club dubs to Harajuku romance anthems, all unified by their tag-teamed sisters-with-voices symbiosis. The album's nine songs (ten on the CD) were founded on skrewed LA Vampires beats and tape samples, shaped by Minerva's psycho-echo vocal melodies, further articulated by multi-instrumentalist NICK CROZIER-MALKIN's synth leads and additional drum programming, before being filtered back through Los Angeles's recordist extraordinaire BRIAN FOOTE's masterboard for micro-edits and fine-tuning. The finished collection is a crooked, captivating composite of bleached-out Day-glo party music, Percy Bysshe Shelley poetics, reverbed keyboard drama, extraterrestrial romance metaphors, seasonal meditation, and weird world studio wizardry.

Genre:Electronic / Dance
Last year’s LA Vampires club-cruise across Australiaunearthed a multitude of uplifting experiences (Cairnshippie aerialists, Newcastle hardcore, Melbourneacid sangria, etc.), but chief among them was the liveactualization of Sydney post-power-trio Holy Balm, whoslyly gene-splice strands of mutant new wave, freeformhouse, digital trashcan tribalism and minimalist popinto something playful, primitive and splatterpaint-partyperfect.After a few micro-edition split tapes and a single 7-inch,the band enlisted the help of Jon Hunter at Magnetic RecordingCouncil Studios to record and mix their debut fulllength,resulting in the whacked-out hyper-color majestyof It’s You. Comprised of live classics (“Take It,” “HolyBalm Theme,” “Town Called Hope”) as well as somewild, extended studio experiments (“Phone Song,” “One& Only”), plus a Y Pants cover, the album captures HolyBalm’s wobbly electronic freak-funk and paradise garagegrooves gloriously. September finds them embarking ontheir first ever US tour / voyage so now’s the time to ’Balmup.
