WOODSTOCK SESSIONS VOL. 4

Band:TEAM SLEEP
Album:WOODSTOCK SESSIONS VOL. 4
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Alt Rock

Team Sleep consists of a group of friends that includes members of such groups as The Deftones, Crosses, The Dillinger Escape Plan and Marilyn Manson within their ranks. The group’s 2005 selftitled debut album captivated the world with its experimental and at times unclassifiable amalgamation of musical styles. While reception for Team Sleep was positive, the individual projects of the members didn’t leave much time for a proper follow up. However in October of 2014, close to ten years after their debut, Chino Moreno, Chuck X, CrookOne, Rick Verret, Todd Wilkinson and Gil Sharone descended on at Applehead Studios (Coheed & Cambria, Chiodos ) in upstate NY.

The resulting record "Woodstock Sessions Vol 4" includes powerful reworkings of their classic material as well as official versions of songs heretofore only appearing in demo form.

CHARNEL PASSAGES

Band:CRUCIAMENTUM
Album:CHARNEL PASSAGES
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

With just a demo, a split, and an EP released under their repertoire, UK death metal band CRUCIAMENTUM already had a reputation as one of the most prominent death metal prospects today. With not even a full-length album released to their name, the band have already brought an awareness to the genre akin to what their counterparts in DEAD CONGREGATION and GRAVE MIASMA (in which CRUCIAMENTUM share two members with) have brought forth within the modern age of death metal as one of the leading bands within the new era. Even though at the time, with just their “Convocation Of Crawling Chaos” demo from 2009 (recognized as one of the best demos of modern day death metal) and their “Engulfed In Desolation” EP from 2011 under their belt, the band were quite active on the live front respectively. Having done several European and U.S. tours, played many exclusive shows, and played notable festivals such as Hell’s Pleasure and Killtown in Europe and Maryland Deathfest, Chaos In Tejas, Rites Of Darkness (twice), and Martyrdoom in the U.S. All this without the band having even released a full-length album. Following a slight hiatus, CRUCIAMENTUM would inevitably resurrect itself to finally deliver their debut full-length album “Charnel Passages”. Their mightiest work yet, “Charnel Passages” has already been deemed as one of the most anticipated death metal albums of the year. “Charnel Passages” is true dark death metal majesty in every sense of the word and will stand as the death metal monument of 2015. With dark atmosphere, pummeling brutality, and skillful playing all rendered with a clear yet massive, warm, and natural sounding production, “Charnel Passages” will make its impact on the death metal scene unlike any album in the genre released this year.

 

 

SUIICIDE EUPHORIA

Band:PISSGRAVE
Album:SUIICIDE EUPHORIA
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

Philadelphia, PA’s PISSGRAVE are a new brutal and raw death metal band who have only one demo cassette, which sold out pretty much immediately, released under their name prior to their debut full-length album “Suicide Euphoria”. They have created a bit of a buzz in the American death metal underground, especially after supporting DEAD CONGREGATION on a short U.S. tour in the fall of 2014 which showcased the band’s devastating live set.

With their debut full-length “Suicide Euphoria”, PISSGRAVE have created one of the sickest, rawest, most depraved and violent death metal releases of the year. Sounding unlike anything going on in death metal today, PISSGRAVE will reveal themselves as one of the most promising prospects in underground death metal today.

 

 

DROP - LP

Band:SOFT MACHINE
Album:DROP - LP
Label:SIREENA
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Prog Rock

In the early seventies West Germany was a great touring area for British rock bands. Here bands like Steamhammer, East of Eden or Curved Air got almost even greater success than in their homeland. This also included the Canterbury scene jazz rock band Soft Machine, the band was announced high, especially in college towns. These recordings were recorded during the tour in Germany in 1971. The tracks are known pieces from the legendary albums of the band "Third" (1970) and "Fifth" (1972), but the sound here is very dynamic and therefore novel. First of all the release shows an even greater devotion to jazz and free jazz. The quality of free-spirited saxophonist Elton Dean together with the influence of the brilliant drummer Phil Howard is outstanding. Most of the titles come from the pen of mastermind Mike Ratledge, who as always makes a convincing figure behind his Rhodes piano, and Hugh Hopper on bass is an institution in Soft Machine - been microstructure. These four guys supply an incredible stage performance, full of variety, Tempi- and chord changes, intensity and playfulness. Excursions in free jazz realm certainly delight as the successful versions of Soft Machine - classics like "All White", "Slightly All The Time" or "As If" - as examples only. A captivating sound document, which was prepared by Sireena sound guru Marlon Klein meticulously for a release on vinyl. The album is released, as we know it from Sireena, in a limited edition in colored 180 gram heavy-weight White vinyl.

PENELOPE TUESDAY

Band:THE OPTIC NERVE
Album:PENELOPE TUESDAY
Label:STATE RECORDS
Format:VINYL 7"
Genre:Garage Punk

Although born from the '80s New York garage scene, the Optic Nerve had nothing whatsoever in common with the movement other than their single-minded idealism to act as if the '80s and the synthesized music that surrounded them was not happening. Rather than using the blaring fuzz tones and screaming "put down" anthems of the garage rock revival, they took the jangling motifs of the Byrds, the Beatles, and a hint of the mid-'60s protest singers to create a sound that, if spawned in 1965, may have brought them success. In the mid-'80s however, '60s-styled folk-rock was not a huge seller—even with fans of the neo-garage scene. Acts like the Fuzztones, Cynics and Lyres may have achieved cult underground status, releasing a number of records between them and touring across Europe, but the Optic Nerve only released two singles during their brief existence and rarely played outside of Brooklyn.

Bobby Belfiore (main songwriter and singer) formed the nucleus of the band in 1985. Over their two-year tenure, a number of musicians went in and out of their ranks. However, lead guitarist and harmony vocalist Tony Matura was a mainstay, and the combination of his and Belfiore's sweet harmonies and folk-rock jangling gave the Optic Nerve their distinct quality. In 1993 and 1994, both Screaming Apple and Get Hip released posthumous albums, consisting of demos recorded throughout the mid- to late '80s.

In mid January 2005, Bobby and Tony got together with Tom Ward [Gravedigger V, Nashville Ramblers] on bass and Mike Linn [Iron Gates] on drums to record an album’s worth of material, which, for a variety of reasons, never saw the light of day. Fast forward 10 years, and State Records are very pleased to be able to offer 2 of the best cuts from that proposed album, and what a pair of gems they are! ‘Penelope Tuesday’ is instant summer hit material, a winning combination of the band’s trademark catchy riffs and joyous vocals, propelled by a bouncing, upbeat rhythm. The flipside, ‘Here To Stay’ shows the introspective, moodier side of the ‘Nerve, with a fragile, laid back approach— sparse, uncluttered, perfect. M

MIEUX COMME CA

Band:FRENCH BOUTIK
Album:MIEUX COMME CA
Label:COPASE DISQUES
Format:VINYL
Genre:MOD / MOD REVIVAL

Following up on the heels of two stunning previous EP's, Mieux Comme Ça is the forthcoming double 7" vinyl outing from the Paris-based “Pop Moderniste” specialists known as French Boutik. Mieux Comme Ca features 3 brand new songs recorded and mixed at Yeah!Yeah!Yeah! Studios in Hamburg, plus the vinyl release of Tiptoes, French Boutik’s unlikely Madness adaptation, originally recorded for the Specialized 3: Mad Not Cancer cd compilation.

Mieux Comme Ca sees the Boutik exploring new musical territory, in keeping with their signature style that's both familiar and brand new ...intelligently crafted songs inspired by the 60s but not stuck in them ... sounds that are both fun and moving ... breaking through language barriers and touching listeners, both francophone and francophobic, worldwide. That unique style made its debut on French Boutik's first two copaseDisques releases: Les Chats de Gouttière (2012) and Ici Paris (2013), which both received fantastic reviews.

Ayahuasca Cumbias Psicodelicas Vol 1

Band:VARIOUS ARTISTS
Album:Ayahuasca Cumbias Psicodelicas Vol 1
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

What have we here? At first glance it seems like the missing volume from our Groove Club series, which it so easily could have been! In short, it's a stunning collection—which took more than fifteen years to put together—of tracks that combine cumbia with psychedelic rock. Starting in the late 1960's, there was a boom of tropical music in Peru, both in Lima and the provinces. The music called ‘cumbia peruana’ merged this tropical sound with that of psychedelic rock. Peculiar aspects of traditional Colombian cumbia were mixed with electric (often fuzz) guitar, played over native Andean and jungle rhythms; this combination provoked an explosion of original musical styles: an instrument to lead the way, usually from the introduction of the song; over this, hypnotic layers of keyboards or guitar with wah wah, and simple bass-lines; to top it off, syncopated rhythms from percussion instruments such as bongos, congas, huiros, cymbals, timbales, among others, often played at breakneck speed, to drive the song forward. Simple, funky, effective. In the end, it's like a sonic cousin to Nigerian music: these musicians liked guitar, they had a fondness for echo, and they loved a murky high-octane jam. Extremely limited mini-LP sleeve disc with 20- page bi-lingual, glossy, color booklet enclosed with photos and some background info on the bands and the development of the Cumbias Psicodélicas sound. Like all Lion/Repsychled titles, this is available exclusively worldwide from Lion Productions and our friends.LTD to 200 copies.

 

 

S/T Sorcerers Dream Nuts

Band:MICHAEL ANGELO
Album:S/T Sorcerers Dream Nuts
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:dcd
Genre:Psych/Garage

Enigmatic exemplar of subterranean overachievers, Michael Angelo Nigro, has long been known to soundhounds searching for esoteric figures on the fringe. He was a man out-of-time, with unerring vision and dedication, principally known for his head-of-the-class 1977 private-press joy, "Michael Angelo" (Guinn 1050—aka The Guinn Album). The Guinn Album, almost entirely an effort of self-creation, is a staggering, hook-filled, inner space hi-fi snap-shot of dreamy pop psychedelia, filled with contemplative, arresting lyrical imagery that etches lovely figures and carries little to ally it to its time. The same can readily be said of his other recordings of that era, the "Sorcerer's Dream" tracks, which make their CD debut here. Highly trippy acid guitar with a West Coast edge mingles with haunting melodic vocals, acoustic guitar, synths, gentle percussion and mystical songs; moments of oddness which are difficult to capture on tape, yet done so in an accomplished manner on these recordings. In-depth liner notes by Jeremy Cargill (Ugly Things, Got Kinda Lost), presenting the story of Michael Angelo for the first time

•Official digital debut of "Guinn Album" follow-up records, "Sorcerer's Dream" and "Nuts" ; 2xCD set w/28-page booklet for the price of a single disc!

 

 

EN CONCIERTO 1969

Band:THE MADS
Album:EN CONCIERTO 1969
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

The first (and so far only) live recording of a Peruvian rock band from the 1960's, and therefore of incredible importance to lovers of rock from that exciting scene! Those of you who already have our previous Mads/Molesto release might remember the story of the Mads: early television performances in Peru; the chance sea-side encounter with Mick Jagger and Keith Richards that got the Mads the chance to go to England; Stones' manager Marshall Chess giving the Mads recording time in the Rolling Stones' studio and at Jagger's Stargroves castle. They played the Marquee, the Lyceum, the Roundhouse. They jammed with Steve Winwood and Brian Davison (The Nice). They played with Jeff Beck and Carmine Appice. Molesto's guitar player, Alex Ventura, worked in a clothing boutique alongside Freddie Mercury and Roger Taylor. But before all the craziness in London, the Mads gave a farewell concert for their fans in Peru, on 18 December 1969, at the Auditorio del Colegio Santa Ursula. The recordings on this disc come from that show. One quick listen makes clear that the Mads demonstrated a lot of Jimi Hendrix Experience influence at this stage of their brief career. Still, it's clear straight away why the Stones were impressed, why Dennis Hopper told them during the intermission of this very concert how great they were (he wanted to hook them up with Phil Spector), and why they are legends of Pervian rock. Heavy, hard, and loud. Two bonus tracks come from their sessions at the Stones' studio in London, and are in the same hard-edged vein. Like all Lion/Repsychled titles, this is available exclusively worldwide from Lion Productions and our friends.

Limited to only 200x copies! / Glossy 20-page bi-lingual booklet with band history and photos.

 

 

TIN HOUSE

Band:TIN HOUSE
Album:TIN HOUSE
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:VINYL PLUS EP
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

"In the twinkling universe of virtuoso electric guitarists that followed in the wake of the genre’s progenitor Jimi Hendrix, perhaps one of the most deserving of renewed recognition is Floyd Radford of the band Tin House, a little known three piece that signed briefly to CBS records in 1970 and released one highly prized album a year later. The overdriven, fluid guitar work—heavy on the wah-wah pedal—is brought to the fore by a beefy full production that lifts the band above the sludgy audio presentation that bedevilled many heavy rock albums of the era." —Richard Allen, Shindig! Magazine

LP + bonus EP cut directly from 24-bit/96kHz master tape transfers.

 

 

TIME AND MONEY / RHYTHM OF THE HIGHWAY

Band:RAY PIERLE (MCKAY)
Album:TIME AND MONEY / RHYTHM OF THE HIGHWAY
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

In the years close upon the creation of his 1977 masterpiece "Into You" (as McKay), Ray "McKay" Pierle released two more long-players, "Time And Money" (1980) and "Rhythm Of The Highway" (1981). As with "Into You," both had press runs of 300 and both met with thunderous indifference. By the time of these albums, the rural, organic feel of the earlier recordings had given way to a harder-edged compositional style, but not without a few quirks emblematic of the era. "Time And Money" adhered closely to the hard-rockin' twin-lead quartet sound, while "Rhythm Of The Highway" added synthetic elements and some ever-so-slight new-wave/power-pop leanings; plenty of bar-band gigs ensured Pierle was always fully-informed of current trends. Obscure Oxide and Lion Productions are proud to present the first-ever reissue of these two LP's, conveniently fitting on one compact disc in their entirety, with all tracks transparently transferred from the original analog master-tapes. All original text and imagery from each release is also preserved, and Ray has been kind enough to provide newlytranscribed lyrics for everything, along with detailed liners putting everything in context.

SKY RACER

Band:STREETMARK
Album:SKY RACER
Label:SIREENA
Format:CD
Genre:Kraut / Space Rock

The final album of the Krautrock heroes STREETMARK to be released on CD for the very first time!

"This (final) LP from 1980 was the first one not recorded at Conny Planck's Studio. Instead, the band chose the Dieter Dierks Studios in which the Scorpions and other international rock stars have produced their records. Another reason was the shift from Jurgen Kramer to the Dierks Studios . Jürgen was a very close friend and the life-long-engineer of the band. The compositions reflect the various musical styles of that time significantly . This had led to a personnel change of the band. They did not want to follow the emerging trend of " Neue Deutsche Welle ". Early 1980 also Thomas Schreiber left the band, so only Dorothea Raukes remained as former original band member. Supported by Stephan Jehring (bass), Dickie Hank (guitar) and drummer Bogdan Skowronek, they recorded „Sky Racer“ 1981, the last album of STREETMARK which one more time burnt all advantages of the band on both sides of a vinyl. 1981 the last tour of STREETMARK took place, where for the last two gigs guitar player Thomas Schreiber joined the band. Founding member Bernd Schreiber joined all recordings and also live concerts, as sound engineer . After finishing this tour also the head of the band, Dorothea Raukes, returned into civil life.

AUN’s music as always suggested forays into other dimensions, be it to imaginary worlds, industrial wastelands, through space and time, or via mind altered states. From the ominous dystopian artwork, of a city being drained of its energy by some mysterious black hole, to the first notes of the title track “Fiat Lux” we are once again transported on AUN’s otherworldly traveling path. Ever since the space industrial and power electronics of AUN’s previous Cyclic Law cult release “Black Pyramid”, the world has become even more sinister, but in contrast, “Fiat Lux” exudes even more of AUN’s melancholic hopefulness. The disintegrating chords and densely textured waves, anchored by a left field industrial pulse, invoke occult drug enhanced, future psychedelia. Created in part in their Montreal studio, these tracks were extensively performed live, prior to recording, and refined while on tour breaks in Montpellier, Barcelona and Tokyo. The energy of these cities is definitely at work in these recordings, which also features a French connection of experimental heavy hitters: Witxes, Frédéric D. Oberland and Philippe Petit have helped round out Dumais and Leblanc’ arsenal. FIAT LUX: Let there be light, from light will come darkness. CD Edition of 500 Copies. 7 Tracks. Running Time 39.00

THE MIRROR REVERSED 11

Band:FUNERARY CALL
Album:THE MIRROR REVERSED 11
Label:cyclic law
Format:CD
Genre:Avant-Garde

The spectral second and final installment of Funerary Call’s “The Mirror Reversed” tumbles deeper through the Setian tunnels, leading the way to the vast and mysterious Other Side. Continuing from where his initial movement left us, Harlow MacFarlane once again summons the tones and auras of his Qliphothic interpretation. It is a serpentine force extending from a churning black vortex lined with crystalline fetters. A dark and textured voyage through the shards of the shattered black surface that once reflected the illusory. The 46-minute meditation ebbs and flows through ambient pulsations of fear, awakening, and the unknowable. Each segmented chapter is a dynamic representation of the individual demonic forces at work, bringing us closer to the roiling waters of formlessness. The forbidden freedom of the Other Side awaits.

That should sound extremely obvious that pain is becoming pleasure as you go through it. 'Reflect your pain', outrageously made for master and slaves.

PARDON

Band:ELECTRIC NOISE MACHINE
Album:PARDON
Label:BLACK BASSETT
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Postrock / Post Hardcore / Noise

Electric)Noise(Machine is a "dead pop" experimental project. The three-piece thrive on heavy, intense music that is full of energy. Built on a bass/drums relationship (DFA1979, Lightning Bolt) and driven by powerful vocals (The Bronx, Refused) and electronic arrangements, it's rock, it's noise, it's punk! The band is used to the roughest stages after numerous shows in very good company (Tweak Bird, Retox, And So I Watch You From Afar, Red Fang....). Few instruments put to maximal effect: a bass sent through a wall of amps, a convoluted pedal system, a handcrafted looped voice, and electronic sounds that are amplified to really hit home their live instrument power, and an abused and mistreated drum kit that will leave lasting marks on all eardrums. More than a band, E)N(M is a machine.

 

 

THE FOWLER

Band:OCHRE ROOM
Album:THE FOWLER
Label:BESTE! UNTERHALTUNG
Format:7 INCH VINYL - WITH CD
Genre:Alt-Country / Americana

There's only one possible explanation why Ochre Room sound how they sound: Rebirth! In a former life the six members of this Finnish band must have lived somewhere in Southwest America. There must have been an old, comfortable bar where they used to spend their nights listening to an unlimited amount of Americana and Folk-Rock. Ochre Room play southern tunes mixed with a portion of northern melancholia and they don't give two hoots about classic genre restrictions. There are hooting trumpets, jingly chimes and sometimes an electric guitar that's getting out of hand. This epic and cinematic sound has brought Ochre Room comparisons to artists such as Ryan Adams and the Cardinals, Neil Young and The Jayhawks, and the status as one of Finland's finest new Folk-Rock bands.

This 7 inch includes one new Song The Fowler; and the Song Blue Devil from the Cabin Sessions. It comes with a CD that includes includes these two songs plus 2 Songs from the Album Evening Coming in; and 2 Songs from the Album Box, Bar & Diamonds.

This album is meditative, moving towards a more mystical and modern sound with the presence of traditional elements from the Sami yoik.

"The album «Máizan-Thaw» shows my sami background from a new side, where the traditional, mythical and modern are mixed. Through this album my inner life as a sami girl in the city has manifested. The roots and longing for the nature is present, but at the same time I am drawn towards the urban. The ice in my debutalbum "Jiknon musihkka-Frozen music" (2009) is melting, and what is under the ice is exposed." – Elin Kåven

Drawing upon a wide range of influences, three of Svavar Knutur's most governing ones are without doubt Nick Drake, Will Oldham (Bonnie Prince Billy) and Kris Kristofferson, although such artists as Leonard Cohen, Cat Stevens, Joni MItchell, Nick Cave and many more singer/songwriters have contributed to the icelandic troubadour's development. Knutur's songwriting has not gone unnoticed internationally, as his song Astarsaga ur fjollunum (Love story from the mountains) propelled his band Hraun to participate in the final 5 competition on BBC World Service's Next big thing, playing for millions of viewers and listeners all over the world.

TOWARDS THE LIGHT...

Band:CRIMSON SUN
Album:TOWARDS THE LIGHT...
Label:MAPLE METAL
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

Energetic, Intense and Heavy with very memorable hooks & melodies best describes Finnish modern metal band CRIMSON SUN’s new album ‘Towards the Light’. The triumphant and mighty debut album from CRIMSON SUN, following their highly praised EP ‘The Border’ from 2013. CRIMSON SUN has been described as "Kick‐ass female fronted metal" with a modern approach, led by their sensational singer Sini Seppälä. Sini’s powerful and melodic voice dominate the album, but the guitar, bass & drums create a crushing heaviness to the music, and the keyboards add many layers through out.

Producer on the album Jacob Hansen (Epica, Volbeat, Amaranthe, Primal Fear) has shared his comments on ‘Towards the Light’: “I really enjoyed the songs and the band. To me, this band could easily become ‘the Next Big Thing’! The song structures and overall sound is catchy, as well as being heavy. Fine tuning this combination could mean Big Business!”

ITHACA - LP

Band:DARK QUARTERER
Album:ITHACA - LP
Label:Cruz Del Sur
Format:DLP
Genre:Metal

Double Gatefold Vinyl edition of the legendary epic/progressive band from Italy, DARK QUARTERER (formed in 1980)! Licensed from Metal On Metal Records, "Ithaca" is a concept album inspired by the 1911 poem of the same title by a Greek poet, Konstantinos P. Kavafis (Constantine P. Cavafy), who used Odysseus's travel from the Trojan Wars back to his home-island as a metaphor for the journey of life, where the goal is not important, but the journey itself. Stylistically, it's a mix of '80s epic heavy metal with '70s progressive rock, and some elements of doom. DARK QUARTERER's music is very warm, full of various emotions and moods, much thanks to the impressive vocals, ranging from mystical and fragile, through more eccentric singing and falsettos, to full-on powerful metal delivery. Overall, it's the most versatile album of this band that has developed and maintained their unique recognizable style, which should appeal to fans of ADRAMELCH, MANILLA ROAD, THUNDER RIDER, SLOUGH FEG, HAMMERS OF MISFORUNE, VAVEL, CIRITH UNGOL, as well as Italian prog rock bands like THE TRIP, GOBLIN, MUSEO ROSENBACH or BIGLIETTO PER L'INFERNO.
