Brian Ruryk
- Weird Doods C31

We always listen to new releases from our favorite Canadian destructionist, Brian Ruryk, with awe and impatience. He goes a step forward every time and that always makes you wonder from which direction this ultra violent metal screeching, glass breaking, frequence growl and intergalactic feedback zap will invade your head. Of course, this album is no exception. It sounds like the household explosion in the final sequence of "Zabriskie Point" playing in double speed. Plus more takes of it, reoccurring w/ asynchronously delay repeats causing pile-up crashes and demolition derbys.
Limited edition of 50 w/ full color artwork printed on metallic paper.

Dead Gum
- Sleepy Town CDR

Blurry, multi-layered, dreamy imagery for a dark city at a summer night which almost looks like a ghost town. Numb emotions and gentle touches guide you to a private wandering where materialism cannot be felt. It's a delirious battle inside your dream warrior head. Drift around without touching the ground, smell the transparent fumes, hear the city's most intimate secret noises, make your very own narrations until the death of night finally comes. It's meant to be listened as one piece at the recommended track order.
Limited edition of 50, packaged in jewel case w/ full color artwork on textured paper.

Both sides bloom w/ lo-fi noir humid intimacy, groove with multi-instrumentalism freedom and yell that not even the bedroom ceiling is the limit. Let your astral ears explode into void.

SEWN LEATHER
- Ροαξη Φινγερζζ ΒΣ. Ροψκ Σλινγερζζ 1-sided LP

Sewn Leather is a trigger, a road warrior, the punk that can be smoked. Somewhere between Whitehouse nihilism, Wolf Eyes' high pitched suffocation and evil Prodigy rhythmology, Griifin Pyn re-invents the 21st century punk! On "??a?? F???e??? ?S. ???? S????e???", he offers his four latest (and yet cleanest) songs, soaked in battery acid, swallow-ready for the confusion generation. Sewn Leather is real.

SARONGS
- S/T C30

Sarongs were a 5-piece from Syracuse, New York which shook things up w/ sweaty DIY house shows and an awkward sound which confused everyone. When all other bands were dealing w/ playful garage warmth, Sarongs were making stripped-down minimal prog w/ doses of post punk, witty lyrics and raw, focused energy. Always true, often political, way ahead of their times. This is a reissue of the first Sarongs cassette that was released in 2011 by Prison Art / Velidoxi Records, not to be confused w/ the also eponymous LP that followed a year later.
Edition of 100 cassettes w/ on-body printing and multi-fold j-card w/ excerpts of the only Sarongs interview, courtesy of "Bande a Part" zine.

TOM CRUISIN'
- The Drifter's Almanac 3''CDR

This is the kind of music you should be listening while driving your car in a big metropolitan city, way deep into the night. City looks abandoned but you feel there's a pulse hidden somewhere. A duet, sounds a bit like a Suicide cover band, is playing at the lowest basement downtown. So loud and so low, the tires bouncing over asphalt vibrations caused by groovebox pumps and fiendish electricity. It's the sound of the city itself. A city which looks different every morning but is always the same at night.

BALINESE BEAST / WHAM JAH
Split LP

A long time in the works, we finally drop off a true early 10's Athens underground artifact. Two of the most active Greek bands, Balinese Beast (the cut-up stomp-punch destruction duo of Ilan Manouach and Giorgos Axiotis) and Wham Jah (the free-form rambunctious electrical mayhem of Pavlos Gkousios, Kostadis Michail and Panagiotis Spoulos) deliver two sides of an eye-sparkling platter filled w/ energy, persistence, baffle and soothing noise. Two entirely different approaches, one strong heart endorsing in musical poodle-like affection.

NEDERLAGET

New superstar death-duo by the northern sound assassins Sindre Bjerga & Lasse Marhaug. Their first proper release (so proper that has been "recorded at the best studio in Oslo", as stated in the release credits) contains 20 minutes of freezing cold electronic (non) music, which hardly restrains from exploding in your face in the most brutal way you could imagine. It is, indeed, a fine balancing act of accurate controlled power cut-ups from hands who don't need to prove anything or, at the very most, raise the middle finger. Bravely.

PHIL MINTON & DYLAN NYOUKIS
- Live in Athens 1-sided LP

"it was in dhalgren that i had read about a father getting fired, and who trying not to depress his family about it, wakes up every day, shaves, dresses himself up, has breakfast and leaves for his "work". where does his spent his almost 8 to 10 hours? a mystery. perhaps crying on a park's bench or drinking or whatever. however, there are times when reality creates even more dystopian images than those in sam delaney's aforementioned opus... it was through such events that our interest in the human voice was brought again forward, and it was upon a discussion on the instruments that we might fancy to hear after the quake of our mechanized world, that we decided on the human voice. it was something that evolved naturally, as since the depression's outbreak, little by little we've started digging recordings of the human voice (voice as the original instrument to quote joan la barbara's classic recording). so when the idea of setting up a live set focused only on the human voice came up, the names of phil minton and dylan nyoukis were thrown on the table immediately and without hesitation we invited them for what turned out to be one the most physical and vital live sets we had set up for a looong time. a set of vocal pirouettes and juxtapositions between dylan and phil which send us flying for almost half an hour that night at the basement of knot gallery and once again fueled our enthusiasm for adventure and quest. besides this, it turned into a great opportunity for 3 fellow conceptualists (ourselves) to collaborate on something they fancied and out of their enthusiasm this document is being released."

FLESH CANDY
- Neither So Big, Nor So Lovely C40

Flesh Candy (a.k.a. Aris Stathis) breaks Phase!'s cherry on almost digestive, almost noise-free, pop music w/ his Dutch immigrant cut-up electronica blues. And it is a hard fist up in the air (and in the behind) 'cause i can't really recall the time i've enjoyed that much of a 'straight' record. Dance yourself off to the daft-punked leftism, take a breath w/ the haiku jingles and let the bloodshed roll on the underground dancefloor as this debut full-length from a long time –even before its beginning– Phase! associate and blood brother urges you to.

HAMMER OF HATHOR
- Saw Isosceles C40

A fine packer of a lost LP by United Staters, Hammer of Hathor, a boy-girl duo of many faces + talents. They mainly shred guitar and bang drumskins on this one in a very primitive way and we-don't-care attitude. The result not only flirts w/ atonal punk and heavy jam energy but repeatedly fucks w/ the brain of the non-music listener. The unconventional way of instrument approach amplifies a universe of electrical guts purely captured with analog and monophonic equipment.

PUTSUM
- Afro Black Metal C60

Three Putsum live performances which took place between late 2011 and early 2012. He proved that Vlad Tepes Dracula was a vegetarian using a caustic reference to reality TV, shouted that Black Metal is not a caucasian-male exclusive benefit, and ressurrected Christ to a fucking zombie, which is something more rational, by the way. The Putsum performances stand between conceptual art, arte povera and punk actionism but the music itself has something else: the unique blended sequence of a madman's mind. You might not get the whole picture, but you are surely getting another view of this great project!

BETTY LOOP LOOP / ANGELOS KYRIOU / KTIRIA TI NYXTA
- Split 2xCS

This double cassette set surely is an original early 10's Athens' artefact. Two solo projects, Angelos Kyriou & Ktriria ti Nyxta (Buildings at Night), completely diffrent from what we've heard till the negative urban space has thrown them up, they redefined music with greek lyrics. Angelos' side offers a typical example of his spastic, obsessed, sincere miniature song-marathon collage while Ktiria delivers a thunderstorm cut-up of -sometimes bootleg- recordings of friends' conversations blended w/ the signature hi-pitch electronic mayhem. The two 5-minute sides sound like a dream radio station. The one we've all wished to exist, the one we're pretty sure will never happen.
Betty Loop Loop takes all over the second 36-minute tape and all of her gig highlights are present with further more self-exploration / experimentation. She's nothing more than the two above mentioned guys together. Literally. She's more than just beautiful...

DJ MISTAKES
- 1-sided LP

“DJ mistakes are two exercise bicycle driven turntables fabricated and ridden by Casey Farnum and Elliot Hess. This project re-introduces spontaneity into the DJ experience and asks how production and industry have assembled to create a listening experience quite different from the hand-cranked turntables it was initially borne from. With a shrug to the practice of crystallizing performances and their reception through vinyl and the audiophile entertainment- center this project re-introduces human touch into the listening experience. It looks back nostalgically to a time when gears and bicycles were the stuff of aural and physical revolutions. Yet it also seeks a contemporary framework in the DJ era where cutting and mixing revolutionized production making it both unpredictable and live. Bikes, turntables, gongs, a mixer, records, and a microphone all mash in this recording live from the Chicken Hut and 1086 Broadway, Brooklyn NY 2006-7.” Phil Schapp, 2011
Limited numbered edition of 200 copies on 1-sided 12”LP, offset covers on metallic paper + inners.

Stargate is something in between pre-sleep Tetris Effect and Trance music in slowmotion: gated soft synth arpeggios smoothly modulate towards brutal supersawed patterns, disintegrating into ecstatic vocals. You are opening the doors of an Ibizia club at 5 am, the foam is all around and your eyes start twisting, your brain is gently stretched & pitched down. You are locked into the longest build-up ever. Unique, truly inspired, 100% uplifting music from the "Dawn of the Cryonics": watching the world from a thick glass lift that goes to 600th floor, experiencing the hyper-real.

SLICING GRANDPA
- Untitled 7"

Low vibration americana. Three tracks of previously released Grandpa goodness (from long gone tape and cdr editions) that begged for vinyl treatment. The raunchy boogie stomp menace of Grandpa IV, the hedonistic early-industrial vibe of Fuck You and the epic slow burner Falling On Grace that channels a underwater bridge from Berkeley to Port Chalmers. Each gatefold photocopy cover features two different colourized paste-ons. Labels are hand written and drawn. Every Little Skull Dude is a new experience. One time edition of 150 copies.

“Archival single by this presumably still-existant West Coast post-form ensemble. These tracks remind me a bit of the very early Jackie-O Motherfucker stuff. It`s a chaotic melange of noise with free rock action underneath and hints of bad attitude galore” Byron Coley/The Wire 08/12

"Grandpa IV" is no-fi swamp-dogging, reminds me of a really fucked Beck track with a death metal riff, drums out of a can and zombies on backing vox. A great tune that I wouldn't mind people hearing as their intro to the "band". "Fuck You" is industrial-style fuckery, hammering drum box on repeat, feedback as instrument and a loopy thing that sounds like a reverbed spring or electrified coil or some shit. Noise, noise, noise. B-Side is "Falling On Grace", a fidelity-free droner, with muffled screams, creepily building guitars and live drums adding up to an eerie noisescape that sounds like it's slowly being smothered with a pillow or submerged in a vat of glue. Arty and frightening” Rich Kroneis/Terminal Boredom

This past summer we toured with Dead Gum in Greece and we were blown away every night.

BIG BLOOD
- Dead Songs CD

Much anticipated proper full length release from this wonderful maine duo after a long running string of self released cdrs & a collaborative 7inch with visitations. colleen kinsella & caleb mulkerin have been key personages of the portland / south portland sonic underground for over a decade, as members of cerberus shoal, threads, fire on fire, etc. while those groups have no doubt left an impressive body of sound, the intimacy and directness of their big blood recordings take things to a higher plane of personal expression, freed from the group mind / “serious” band trapping of their past musical outlets. here they are free to romp in their personal microverse, following whim & fantasy through the gates of acoustic transcendence. all of the off-the-cuff spontaneity, intimate home fidelity, and deep personal charms of their older releases are as present as ever, but the the duo’s scope is now focused to a crystalline clarity of vision. dead songs is as sorrowful & joyful in its mirrored symmetry as the infinite life cycle itself, flowing on cleansing waves of inner release & spirit absorption… wailing fuzzed-up garage folk anthems mesh into twisted poetic acidfolk and drift to expansive melancholic meditations of boundless depth. two voices howl, swoon, alternate & join, lyrical layers peel away endlessly, tiny amps weep in pain, crude percussion booms thunderous, and ragged, beautiful hooks unfurl straight out of the void… packaged in an identical mini-lp style gatefold cover with clear varnish overprinting & offset printed vellum insert. first pressing of 1000 copies.
