JD EMMANUEL – ‘ECHOES FROM ANCIENT CAVES’
SA018, ed. of 200. A reissue of an under-heard classic from the Space Wizard himself. A true honor to put this back on cassette. From the mouth of the man: “Created in 1980-81, this album continues my mix of electronics and jazz. The instrumentation on this album was a Crumar Traveler 1 organ, Yamaha CS-15 Synthesizer, Octave Cat Synthesizer, Yairi DY-74 acoustic guitar with an Echoplex EP-4, Ross Phaser pedal and a DOD Compressor/Limiter pedal. A Teac 4 channel reel deck was used for the multi-tracked recording. Side one starts with a tape loop using the Crumar Organ mixed with wind chimes and birds that were recorded live. The next two pieces we re created with acoustic guitar and synthesizer. The final piece is using the organ. Greg Kelly, exceptional guitarist friend of mine, plays the acoustic guitar on Memories of Atlantis, which we co-wrote. Side two is all multi-tracked organ and synthesizers.”

DRAINOLITH – ‘AIN’T NO SUNSHINE’
SA020, ed of 150. Tangled, pummeled poly-rhythmic blues from AIDS WOLF alumn Alexander Moskos, headstock scratching the floor, feet pounding. Deeply felt and deeply numb at the same time, somehow scorching and freezing. Art by Moskos.
HIGH WOLF – ‘KNOW THYSELF’
SA021, ed. of 150. Ascendent, crystallized tones from High Wolf. Calm, mantric expansions, burning at the center. France’s finest in contemporary psych. The man is traveling the USA, check his TOUR DATES.
