Black Angels, The
Directions To See A Ghost
Tape | 2014 | US | Original (Light In The Attic)
15,99 €*
Release:2014 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
“The Black Angels bring the aura of mid-1966 the drilling guitars of early Velvet Underground shows, the raga inflections of late-show Fillmore jams, the acid-prayer stomp of Austin avatars the 13th Floor Elevators everywhere they go, including the levitations on their second album, _Directions to See a Ghost. Mid-Eighties echoes of Spacemen 3 and the Jesus and Mary Chain also roll through the scoured-guitar sustain and Alex Maas’ rocker-monk incantations. But he knows what time it is. ‘You say the Beatles stopped the war," Maas sings in ’Never/Ever.’ ‘They might’ve helped to find a cure/But it’s still not over.’ Even so, this medicine works wonders." – David Fricke, Rolling Stone

King Woman
Doubt
Tape | 2015 | US | Original (Flenser)
9,99 €*
Release:2015 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
King Woman is fronted by former Whirr vocalist Kristina Esfandiari. The group’s debut 12-inch Doubt unfurls lugubriously, blossoming into a haunting sprawl of crushing, slo-mo miserablism. Imagine some twisted fusion of PJ Harvey, Sunn 0))) and Black Sabbath. Churning washes of crumbling distortion and tar-pit riffage drift grimly through billowing clouds of dense, layered thrum; roiling backdrops for Esfandiari’s throaty, bewitching vocals. The sonic heft is matched by lyrical themes of family and religious abuse, and the suffering borne of both. Esfandiari originally formed King Woman back in 2009, but the band took a backseat to her other projects Miserable and Whirr (with whom she played from 2012 to 2013). Doubt is a follow-up to previous EP releases Dove / Fond Affections (The Native Sound) and Degrida / Sick Bed (Sleep Genius).

Walkthrough
Tape | 2016 | US | Original (Hausu Mountain)
8,99 €*
Release:2016 / US – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Mukqs has released solo experiments that take his tactics of tape-loop mangling and sample manipulation honed in the trio Good Willsmith to new heights of noise collage abstraction. Walkthrough, Max Allison’s first full length release on Hausu Mountain represents another complementary branch of his work: layered synth compositions performed on hardware electronics, inspired by the tones of classic video game music. Recorded live as a single session presented without overdubs, Walkthrough finds Allison winding through a song cycle of day-glo square-wave leads, busy electronic percussion patterns, and washes of low-end drone. Mukqs meshes the emotionally resonant melodies and synthetic timbres of the soundtracks to Super Nintendo RPGs like Chrono Trigger or Earthbound with the strain of organic synth exploration practiced by the likes of Cluster or Emeralds. For Mukqs and many musicians of his generation, video game soundtracks served as a formative entry point to electronic music at a young age. Instead of merely bridging the gap between Mukqs’s musical upbringing and his current experimental practice, Walkthrough reveals that no such gap exists.

When VIS went to a very small festival from friends on the beautiful island of Donoussa in Greece this summer, one of the first persons they met was Stratos: "he was telling us about his special set of Greek Ethno music he was planning to play to start the festival! Stratos was collecting the records from all over Greece for years. We were blown away by the psychedelic sounds he was playing, by far not as "happy" as we expected them to be. Experimental music existed long before electronics. After some months back home we were still talking about the effects Stratos' selection had on us and decided to share his sonic language with you through this tape. This is a special one for sure!"

Limited to 75 copies. Only one copy per customer.Imagine, if you will, a foreboding homemade electro-acoustic, new age, synth driven, proto-techno, imaginary world music Portastudio soundtrack for a Polish-made animated fantasy based on a Finnish modern folk tale and created for German and Austrian TV, composed in 1982 by two politically driven post-punk theatre performers from a shared house in Leeds!To even the most perspicacious and adventurous of alternative music fans the genuine bloodline of this previously unreleased record already begins to sound like an entire record collection in one sitting. It would be surprising if this project’s ambitious and exotic credentials didn’t tick at least one box on your musical matrix and without one drop of unnecessary nostalgic hyperbole this project already sounds like the perfect fantasy record that you’ve never heard. Alternatively we could just say The Moomins and, for many, things would instantly begin to make perfect sense.From the same social landscape as Gang Of Four, The Mekons and Impact Theatre Co-operative - armed with a Wasp synthesiser, an ocarina and a cassette of the Robinson Crusoe music taped off the TV, Graeme Miller and Steve Shill used minimum means for maximum mayhem, instilling over 35 years of dreamlike illusory fuzziness and freakiness into the memories of a generation of school age TV addicts waiting for the next 5 minute fix of outernational fuzzy felt folklore. Collected here, all in one place for the first time, Finders Keepers in close collaboration with the original composers finally bring the original homemade micro-melodies and reintroduce them to a musical landscape where fans of vintage electronics, concrète tape effects, pocket percussion and domestic synths are finally ready to be reunited with the magnetic music of Moominvalley.

TALsounds
Lifter + Lighter
Tape | 2016 | US | Original (Hausu Mountain)
8,99 €*
Release:2016 / US – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
The sessions of live-looped electronic improvisation that Natalie Chami releases under the TALsounds moniker continue to evolve in complexity and emotional resonance as she refines her approach to performing music as an everyday process. As part of the trio Good Willsmith, Chami’s self-harmonized choral vocals and recursive synth leads weave through her bandmates’ swathes of noise and abstracted “rock” instrumentation. Lifter + Lighter, her second full-length TALsounds release on Hausu Mountain, focuses the spotlight closer than ever on the direct physical reality of her meditative performance style. If 2015’s All The Way (HAUSMO32) offered a series of confessional, diaristic expressions of Chami’s experiences, rooted in specific events along her own timeline, Lifter + Lighter sheds any overarching personal themes in favor of a universal connection to her listeners. Instead of creating vehicles for specific moments, TALsounds hones the technical aspects of her craft, conjuring new inspiration from the tones and improv strategies themselves that she workshops over her exhaustive home recording regimen. On Lifter + Lighter, Chami’s vocals sit closer to the front of her mixes than ever before. Her clear human presence, coupled with her more legible lyrical content, achieves a direct exchange with the audience in the form of her most “song”-like sessions to date, all while maintaining the loose, no-overdubs quality of previous releases. The takes documented on Lifter + Lighter range from filmic expanses of pitch-black synthesis to pounding exercises of industrial rhythm to vocal-focused pieces closer in execution to R&B ballads. TALsounds unites these styles under the umbrella of her solo live performance, all poured from the same rig of analog synths, samplers, and loop pedals. Sessions like “I’m Just Around” churn over arrhythmic beats while Chami drops languid vocalizations into the increasingly queasy atmosphere. “Close My Eyes” and “Hair” draw tonal inspiration from Björk circa Vespertine, as Chami’s elegant music-box synth lines ping together between sighed verses that stack onto themselves over time. “I Am Why” finds her streaking into a harsher, glitch-inspired textural field, randomly erasing and segmenting her own looped vocals into a live-constructed stutter before piling on additional strata of sampled percussion. Album closer “Solace” represents a cathartic peak to Lifter + Lighter’s varied gradient of headspaces. The session captures the precision and spontaneity of her performances in equal parts with its slowly unfolding, suite-like structure. Atonal synth bursts howl in the darkness. Her vocalizations cut through and stir together in the center, compounding into a dense wall with each impassioned wail left to hover in her loops. TALsounds climbs up octaves as vocal phrases layer to their limit, before squelching peals of delay manipulation overwhelm the mix. As in all of her sessions, each of these decisions happened in real time - performed over the same time that it takes to hear them, pulled from two hands and a brain conditioned over a perpetually expanding journey of practice.

SOS Forks AI REM
Tape | 2016 | US | Original (Hausu Mountain)
8,99 €*
Release:2016 / US – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Doug Kaplan wants you to be happy, to stare into the digital void, and to merrily prank you into a puddle of fractals. As MrDougDoug, he makes music to entertain and challenge in equal measure. The MIDI-contorting sci-fi opus SOS Forks AI REM represents his debut album of solo material on Hausu Mountain. While Doug continues to explore the possibilities of noise improvisation and guitar performance in the trio Good Willsmith and other projects, SOS Forks AI REM finds him harnessing his in-the-box production experience to create an album entirely using software instruments. MrDougDoug drudges up pre-existing MIDI files from the Internet Archive’s Geocities Collection and freemidi.org and overhauls them to suit his twisted tastes. Kaplan’s style of re-contextualization balances the spastic urges of John Oswald’s plunderphonic pop experiments with the attention to production detail and cyborg texture of Oneohtrix Point Never - all while maintaining a sense of reckless glee and mischief reminiscent of The Residents’ stable on Ralph Records. MrDougDoug imagines a future where speakers continue to shrink and shrink, from earbuds to phone speakers to biologically integrated playback devices sounding out of minuscule flesh amplifiers, blasting into the realms of unprecedented fidelities. SOS Forks AI REM, then, is what emerges from those pore-sized speakers. Each note overloads the device, and each track overloads the brain.

Shilpa Ray
Make Up EP
Tape | 2015 | US | Original (Northern Spy)
6,99 €*
Release:2015 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
The former backup singer for Nick Cave steps out from his shadow to release the Make Up EP, a pair of imaginatively adapted covers. On Lou Reed’s quirky “Makeup,” described by Rolling Stone as an “image of the…sissy traipsing around and lisping about effeminacy,” Shilpa Ray filters the story through the antithetical lenses of explosive noise and charming cabaret. Next, Dinah Washington’s legendary “What A Diff’rence A Day Makes” is given a seventies soft-rock makeover, and you find yourself completely bewitched by Shilpa’s captivating vocals and dreamy wurlitzer piano. Only a brief taste of what’s in store on her brilliant upcoming LP, Last Year’s Savage (May 19th on Northern Spy), these songs are sure to whet the appetites of long time fans and new ones alike. In Shilpa Ray’s words: I had an epiphany about “Make Up” (written by Lou Reed) when I was in Palermo around Christmas time after the Bad Seeds tour. Lou had died late October. I found out 10 minutes before I had to play solo before a sold out crowd at the Hammersmith Apollo in London. Needless to say, his passing had a massive effect on me. He was my childhood hero. Europe was hard to grasp for me in a lot of ways. The culture, language barriers,the overload of dairy and ghettos of freshly placed refugees from countries, some I had never heard of before. I was exhausted and getting drunk outside a bar where you can get Marsala for a Euro, basically all I could afford. There were tons of kids dancing in the streets getting high and happy, when this stray yellow lab walked up to me and starts swaying back and forth. The song Make Up came blaring through the stereo and I started swaying with the dog. It was one of those rare moments I felt alright. We had decided to go to the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame during a tour stop in Cleveland. I was pretty cynical about the whole thing and tour hadn’t been smooth. I had to send a dude home for being a brat in Kansas City among other places and was feeling pretty exposed as the bad guy. It was a stressful situation and trying to justify my actions in the passive aggressive world of music where no one’s making any money felt daunting. I seperated myself from the group, the costumes, the Katy Perry and the Beyonce and hung out in the listening booth for hours. Dinah Washington came on and put every wannabe singer, myself included, to shame. What a voice! She draws her breath so long and never loses the listener. I had to challenge myself with this one. I hope I can sing like her someday.
Moon B - Life World
Moon B
Life World
Tape | 2015 | US | Original (1080P)
15,99 €*
Release:2015 / US – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Chopped, grainy subcontinental film aural motifs paired with other slankness on Moon B’s latest and 1080p debut “Lifeworld”. After a brief pause since his PPU releases, Wes Gray returns with a remapped take on his distinctly dusty and groovy sample-focused synth funk. Gray has worked towards his particular sweet spot of retrofuturism, and “Lifeworld”’s segues between antiquity and contemporary g-funk benefit from extremely rich, filmic moods and a general knack for basking in warmth and sincerity rather than obscurity. Recently inspired by Delroy Edward's "Slowed Down Funk" tape series, his spin on the mixtape format is freaky and heavy on bonus synth overlays, typically scruffy but velvety textures and moods galore that from one minute lead from a walk down Beale Street in Memphis only to shift into a steamy auto rickshaw in Chennai the next. It's all in the pocket of his cratedigging influences, and“Lifeworld” also has residual vibes of someone like Games’ slowed and screwed-tempo samples; in this case, South Asian cinema clips are looped amidst analog synth overlays with similarly syrupy implications of his original grooves (much like on his last mixtape effort “Any Questions” edging against more texturally and vibe-diverse source material. Concept and tracked by Moon B in Los Angeles, October 2014.

Genre:Electronic / Dance
Argument #02 is Cage Suburbia’s second effort of 2014, and middle chapter of a planned trilogy of EPs. Acid, subversive and cyber-raw as ever, the duo’s news creative effort still dwells as far from conventional electronic studio production as possible. Totally improvised, recorded on one stereo track through one single take, it aims to channel a provocative, reactive force by sharpening techno and jungle’s harder edges. Basslines and grooves are turned into assault weapons, whose main goal is to reclaim pleasure and danger, to rob the information bank and liberate desire. The four tracks of the EP are all named after four tough port cities, four access points to the net and fractures between worlds: the initiation ground for a higher state of consciousness and a fiercer way of life.

Release:2016 / UK – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Los Angeles-based producer AshTreJinkins steps aside from the beat scene that he has long associated himself with on "Hood Temperature" under the Brown Irvin alias. Four cuts of bare-boned experimental house and techno - the sonic equivalent of standing on a street corner in south central L.A and observing the scene at 3AM. It also features a remix from London-based producer G.W. under his 'Ruffien' alias.

Genre:Rock / Indie
We know this much: he hails from Cleveland (though now apparently living in California); his name is Gabe Fulvimar; he was in an early incarnation of the Black Keys; and he met the Burger Records folks a few years back. It surely must have been a match made in heaven, as they released his debut album as Gap Dream a few years ago to much critical acclaim. There’s definitely a nod to ‘90s indie heroes like Spiritualized and Sonic Youth in his music and his mind continues to expand (insert drug reference here). Fulvimar has created another record that will appeal to a wide range of music fans as the indie rockers will give it a thumbs up as will the stoners, psych-mongers and electronic freaks, too. - BLURT
