THE BOX

Band:SULA BASSANA
Album:THE BOX
Label:SULATRON
Format:6CD
Genre:ELECTRONIC /KRAUTROCK /AMBIENT /KOSMISCHE

This is a huge project for Sula Bassana and took a whole year to finish. Some kind of a retrospective, but with mostly never on CD and wax released stuff! Started by the idea of doing a 6-LP Box by Pancromatic Records in Norway, Sula is now producing the CD version for his own label Sulatron. This box contains 2 CDs of the album Endless Winter (originally released in 2006 in a small run of CD-Rs, later also available on Bandcamp). Sula did 3 new recordings who fit in perfectly, to make it a proper double album. Endless Winter is a Guitar only album, played over many guitareffects, 2 loopstations and 2 amps. No overdubs were done, it's all spontaneous improvisation. Next 2 CDs are Silent Music , here Sula recorded 2 bonustracks with the same intention. This is a collection of very soft and/or quiet songs, played on a wide range of instruments: Guitar, Bass, Synthesizer, Piano, flute, soundbowls, cymbal etc. This album was also only out on a very small run of CD-Rs in 2009 and also later also been uploaded to Bandcamp. CD 5 contains Sula's sides of the 2 split LPs he made in the past: Retronique from the split with Vibravoid in 2003 (Nasoni-Records). And Disappear from the split LP with 3AM (Chino Burga from La Ira De Dios, Culto al Qondor etc.) from 2014. These are composed songs and show a different side of Sula, compared to the first 4 CDs of this box. You can compare it more to his album Dreamer or similar stuff. CD 6 contains previously unreleased tracks from the last 10 years or so. Mostly crazy and spaced out electronic stuff, with some dub and trance influences and one Guitar driven psychrock freakout. The CDs come in 3 double digisleeves (like mini-gatefold LP covers) in a strong box plus 2 stickers. Limited to 500 copies worldwide! No reprint! CDs 5 & 6 are mastered by Eroc. Coverartwork painted by Dr. Knoche, layout by Sula. Tracks: CD 1 & 2: Endless Winter (plus 3 bunus tracks) CD 3 & 4: Silent Music (plus 2 bonustracks) CD 5: The split LPs (A: Retronique from 2004 with Vibravoid, B: Disappear from 2014 with 3AM) CD 6: Previously unreleased tracks

A PRAYER FOR THE BIRDS

Band:CRYSTAL JACQUELINE
Album:A PRAYER FOR THE BIRDS
Label:MEGA DODO
Format:LP
Genre:ROCK/ACID-ROCK

A Prayer for The Birds was written by Crystal Jacqueline's partner and musical director Icarus Peel and was inspired by their shared love of nature and the environment. While the album may offer something familiar and dependable, it s another step forward in a musical journey that started some years ago. For this album, Jacqueline was joined by new backing singers Victoria Reyes and Elaine Lightfoot. Victoria also plays exquisite oboe and Lizzy Wayne, who s also played with the Honey Pot, adds flute. Both players and instruments add new colours to a pastoral sonic palette. Together they lay down a deep-pile carpet to walk on, a perfectly heated pool to swim in, an adequately logged fireplace to lie in front of. Limited to 300 copies Gatefold sleeve Lyric sheet 180 gram vinyl TRACK LISTING Side 1 The Edge of My Garden / White Horse Hill / Dorsetshire Days / 100 Years Ago / First Light Side 2 Arise The Sun / Mercy Rose / A Prayer For The Birds / Turn The Tide / Moth / Birdsong

UMBRA (LIMITED)

Band:UMBRA
Album:UMBRA (LIMITED)
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:LP
Genre:ACID ROCK/70S

What was available to unknown hard rocking dreamers like Umbra in Denver in 1971-72? Weekend gigs. Nothing but weekend gigs. But there was an upside to that: bands like Umbra could mix original material in with covers, and make enough money to survive. Or in the case of Umbra, to make enough money to build a home studio, where they recorded ads to promote their upcoming shows-and eventually, laid down the eight tracks on this disc. Everything was recorded by bouncing tracks back and forth between two-track and four-track reel-to-reel tape recorders. Spacey intros and weird effects were created by recording guitar licks, then re-recording them played backwards at double speed. What sounds like a flute was the result of blowing over the top of a 14" goose neck (believe it or not). The resulting tracks are hard edged and heavy, verging on acid rock at times. Makes sense, as Umbra was a power trio most of their too-brief existence. Yet the songs (heavy though they are) have a deft touch. There are weird effects, space rock elements, plenty of melody, and a refreshing category-free approach to writing songs that makes Umbra's music exciting to hear. Our Lion LP edition comes with an 8-page LP-sized color booklet, with lyrics, photos, plus interesting and funny things that can only happen to musicians, and did to Umbra. The CD edition comes with a sixteen-page color booklet containing the same material. We know that band bios can be sterile and boring or can move to the opposite spectrum, rife with grandiose embellishment. Umbra's story is neither. Instead, it is the story is the story of a band from the early 1970's who recorded what they wanted to record: heavy, heavy music from the start of the "American Comedown Era" (as we've seen it described by friends for their Brown Acid series of compilations). Umbra's story is also that of a band whose music, terrific though it is, has never to this point been released out into the wide world. Prepare yourselves to be surprised-and we hope as impressed as we are-by what Umbra had to offer.
