Menstruation Sisters - Glass Walking
Menstruation Sisters
Glass Walking
LP | 2015 | EU | Original (Pica Disk)
15,99 €*
Release:2015 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Pica Disk is proud to release "Glass Walking" an LP of recently unearthed recordings by the infamous Australian noise band Menstruation Sisters. Over the years the Menstruation Sisters have through a selective, but incredibly varied output of albums steadily built a reputation among music fans as a unique band. It was never a secret who the members of Menstruation Sisters were, yet the band's aura was shrouded in mystery and confusion, possibly because they would completely reinvent themselves with every new recorded statement. As a fan of the Menstruation Sisters you had to abandon everything you knew with each new piece of the puzzle.And now we can go back to the beginning, the birth of the Sisters, as by pure luck early previously unreleased material from 1995 was recently discovered in the vaults in Perth's Endless Studios archives. On these recordings the band was the duo of Oren Ambarchi and Nik Kamvissis, but with producer Anthony Maher assisting and performing on some tracks. Ambarchi and Kamvissis would continue as a duo until Brendan Walls joined in 2001The material heard on "Glass Walking" has a different flavor to the albums that would follow. Fans will immediately be struck by the almost total absence of drums and guitars, as the music on "Glass Walking" is built around electronics and vocals. This makes the music feel more immediate, urgent and desperate. Tracks like "Give Blood" and "Don't Fuck" reveals the missing link between Hanatarash, Maurizio Bianchi and the monkeys in the Evolution Revolution band. This is noise music history in reverse.The album also contains the first Menstruation Sisters live concert, which documents that the band's ferocious performance antics were also fully developed from the very first time they set foot on stage. This is the complete set, all glorious 9 minutes and 35 seconds of it."Glass Walking" will only be available on vinyl and comes with liner notes and archival photos that explains everything.

Dalströka Bortafor

Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Bjørn Hatterud and André Hardang Borgen have been staples of the Norwegian experimental music underground for 20+ years. Individually they have been active with numerous projects spanning from post-ironic queernoise and decontructed folk plunderphonics to cloudy guitar psychedelia and hard hitting avant boogie both musicians have wandereed the kind of adventurous artistic paths that starts to make sense when viewed in hindsight, revealting continuous multidisciplinary lines of ideas.Despite being long-time collaborators Dalstrøka Bortafor is Hatterud and Borgens debut album as a duo. It's also a record that took 13 years to make. Not that the twosome were aiming to making an album, Dalstrøka Bortafor slowly fell in place through numerous recording sessions that accumulated and eventually took the shape of an album. (You can't rush magic).The six tracks that make the album are dream-like electronic excursions, with layers of synth, guitar, percussion, viola and found sounds the duo weaves a sonic tapestry that hints at a kinship to 1970's German electronic music pioneers. This is probably not accidental, as Hatterud collaborated with Conrad Schnitzler in the years before his passing. But there's more to it, the Norwegian title translates to The Valleys Beyond and this is music that brings you deep into Norwegian folklore, with trolls, draugen and other mythical creatures lurking within the forest. But, Hatterud and Borgen are there to guide you through the mysterious landscape, making sure that you come out at the other end unharmed.
Sult / Lasse Marhaug - Harpoon
Sult / Lasse Marhaug
LP | 2016 | EU | Original (Pica Disk)
15,99 €*
Release:2016 / EU – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Havard Skaset / Jacob Felix Heule / Guro Skumsnes Moe / Lasse Marhaug. Recorded at Tunnelen, Oslo, May 2014. Mixed at the best studio in Oslo, 20152016. A collaborative LP of acoustic improvisors SULT (Håvard Skaset: guitar / Jacob Felix Heule: percussion / Guro Skumsnes Moe: double bass) and Norwegian sound artist Lasse Marhaug. The source material is performed by SULT, while the album was constructed and produced by Lasse Marhaug. In the hands of Marhaug the already dense and visceral expression of SULT is transformed into a maelstrom of layered sheets of scraping noise, rising and collapsing simultaneously. Some listeneres will place "Harpoon" in the proximity of artists like Organum, David Tudor and Ferial Confine, but the music carves its own place in the landscape. A joint release between Pica Disk and Conrad Sound, limited to 200 copies.

Genre:Rock / Indie
All music by Phillip B. Klingler (PBK) and Jim O'Rourke, 2014-15.About "Unidentified Again" : "I first met Jim O'Rourke in 1989. We corresponded by mail and would talk on the phone frequently. Jim was in college at that time and he was very excited about music. He sent me mixtapes, we would talk about his love of Van Dyke Parks, his work with KK Null or Henry Kaiser. I also remember he sent me Godflesh' "Streetcleaner" album which he likened toKing Crimson's "Red". Jim's soundwork was always special and I released one of his compositions on my Assemblage" compilation tape in 1990. We talked about collaborating, but then my situation changed suddenly and in 1992 I moved to Puerto Rico with my family. My life got complicated and I fell out of touch with a lot of friends while there. By the time I got back to the States things had changed for Jim as well, and he was in a nomadic phase, drifting around, performing a lot of concerts around the world, but a letter I sent to his parents' address eventually reached him and in 1997 he wrote back and replied that he was only able to finish about ten minutes of electronic music a year. Still, the interest in collaboration was there, though Jim was very busy and things did not materialize in the collaborative direction for us.That was the last time I heard from Jim for 15 years, until something coincidental happened in 2012. My cousin runs a label and put out a record by Merzbow. One day my cousin informed me that my old buddy Jim O'Rourke had ordered the album. As I was assisting him with shipping copies of the album, I wrote a note to Jim and threw in a couple of my CDs along with the LP.Not too long after that, Jim and I were in contact again. As is always the case with us, we fell into vigorous conversations about music and everything else - and again the idea of collaborating occurred. Rather suddenly Jim surprised me with source material I could use. I immediately went to work on it, with the idea that approximately 40 minutes would just about be ideal for an LP project. The sound material Jim sent was likely composed on his Serge modular synth. We'd been discussing synthesizer heroes of ours - Jim sharing his love of Roland Kayn's expressive work and I'm always going on about David Tudor. I worked on the first two mixes, but I dug Jim's sources so much I didn't do any kind of manipulation on them. I built audio environments for his sounds to live in, and they do sound alive, like synthetic landscapes with birds or animals of some primitive, or alien, origin and, of course, also huge drones that could be electrical storms. I sent Jim my own sources and he came up with two beautiful mixes, each quite different from the other. I'm very pleased we finally got to do our collaboration - even if it took a quarter of a century to make it happen." Phillip B. Klingler, April 2015.

The idea was to place Stine in challenging sonic environments, and to explore how the surroundings affected the performances. The locations were picked for their sonic qualities.In Labour is both a solo voice and a field-recording album at the same time, but it is quite different from what either of these usually sound like.180 gram vinyl LP.
