Femminielli – ‘Sprezzatura’ C20 $7(USA)/$9(WORLD)
Edition of 100. Montreal’s backwards veil disguises it’s unique history in dance music and all things electronic. Femminielli is years worth of artistic reference personifying this curious obsession with imported 80′s discothèque culture, cued perfectly into this years best anthems. One of the co-conspirators behind the infinate experiemntal label Los Discos Enfantasmes and previous releases on Hobo Cult, Fixture and Digitalis, Bernardino Femminielli is fresh on deck for his most recent dance floor masterpiece, Sprezzatura. Joining together italo-disco beats, ethereal krautrock influence synthesizer sequences, Mediterranean hustler mantras…all tied up in a sordid karaoke meltdown. Tough to explain, easy to digest…won’t you join us.
Jazkamer – ‘Failed State of Mind’ C30 $7(USA)/$9(WORLD)
Edition of 100. Over the past decade, Norwegian improvisers Lasse Marhaug and John Hegre has combined their efforts within the mainframe of Jazkamer, each one’s participation equally jarring and affectionate to the designated listener. Stacks of releases have documented this infamous collaboration as it set course through noise, power electronics, improvised acoustics and free form sound, culling their strengths and weakness to make some of the most memorable experimental albums to date. This exclusive tape edit reworks the previous issue of the album Failed State Of Mind, which was released on CD with selective sequence on Marhaug’s own Pica Disk imprint in 2010. Re-sequenced and assembled by Lasse Marhaug into an unique analog interpretation of this modern classic.
