Arcanum AZF – ‘Knights of the Sun’ ‘Knights of the Sun’ continues Arcanum AZFs exploration of noise and drone, this time incorporating concepts associated with black and sludge metal. It also continues AZFs interest in melding improvisation with composed passages of music. Droning guitars and electronic feedback meld together with passages of classical music samples, mic’d and amplified ‘objects’ and sound collaged passages of sound.’
Butoh Sonics – ‘Annihilate this Memory’ CS $5 Three free improvisational rituals from the Phoenix, Arizona group Butoh Sonics. Compositions captured live and performed with a variety of experimental instrumentation such as sound sculptures, electronics, and prepared guitar. Limited edition cassette released through Zazen Tapes (edition of 25).
JJM3 – ‘The Expanse’ The Expanse employs the use of both realistic and synthetic sounds to create shifts in perception much akin to entering and exiting dreamlike states. For example, a field recording of a somewhat familiar environment will have an aspect magnified through processing and spacial emulation until it bears little resemblance to its actual form; taking on a droning alien personality, alongside morphing synth textures and instrumentation welling up from the depths. Inspiration from both the external nature of the world we live in and the boundless internal unknown play equal parts in this creative work.
‘Delicacy Spectrum’ (EYM-011) 12″ $15 Eclectic lineup of some super exciting voices in techno, noise and electronic today–and most surprising how it all effortlessly comes into unison. A true delicacy. Edition of 300.
Marc Méan – ‘Collage’ Collage is the first ambient/electronic album of the jazz pianist and improviser Marc Méan. It is the result of improvisations and musical experiments recorded in the last 6 months that were later put together in two 20 minutes tracks hence the name « Collage « . The result is all-expensive environments, and fully-realized worlds to explore and get lost in. Although the sounds are largely electronic, the feeling is organic, with lush arrangements that breathe and breaststroke their way gracefully through the open air.
Verhlaten – ‘Land’ CS $6 Wall like, jarringly ominous electronic music from Modern Tapes founder and formerly Albuquerque based Verhalten. A singular voice navigating the intersections between techno, harsh noise and modular synth music. Pristine, delicate and rich soundscapes performed, recorded and mastered by Verhalten himself. Limited edition of 30 cassettes.
Billy N’ Dave – ‘Share My Chaise’ CS Billy G. Robinson and David Lackner first met on a gig in 2009 and have since collaborated on many projects together including records with Blue Jazz TV and Synthetic Love Dream. They continue to gig together at least once a week, and have formed a deep friendship built on long drives and sitting in traffic around NY. “Often at 2am we would be on the road and have these long talks in the car; so much time over the years to kick back and forth ideas about making music, selling vitamins, spirituality, and lots of other stuff you do NOT need to know about. To me, the record sounds like late night driving through New Jersey at the hour of the wolf. The sequence, I hope, feels like a retrospective looking back on a couple’s long life together.” -DL. Billy began his career in music as a child singing and touring with Glen Jones and the Gospel Modulations (yes, “that” Glen Jones) After leaving his home in Jacksonville, Florida and moving to New York in 1978. He became the lead singer for the group B.T. Express in 1980, and shifted into music production around 1997. He enjoyed a solo career with Apollo/Motown records throughout the 80s. Dave comes from playing jazz sax and piano in Philly. After moving to NY, he mostly switched to pop music, minimalism, and running Galtta. After talking about it for 5 years, the two finally finished a record together and the outcome is “Share My Chaise”; 9 smooth tunes covered in synths, sax, trumpet, drums, bass, guitar, and percussion. “Trust” is co-written and sang by Genevieve Kammel Morris (Lauds). Big thanks to Blue Jazz TV members Adrian Knight, Max Zuckerman, and Mike Advensky for playing on the record. And Dan Nissenbaum for his trumpet playing on track 1. Track 9 is dedicated to Sharon Robinson. Recorded and mixed in BK, NY at the Galtta studio. Produced by D Lackner. Edition of 115 cassettes.
