Moon Myst

Szdanik Tuuutiitak/Gel Mausoleum – ‘The Weekdays of an Electronic Man’ split C60
A walk through daily electronic oblivion with Szdanik Tuuutiitak (Alexey Nakhodkin – Saint Petersberg, Russia) and Gel Mausoleum. Hallucinatory consciousness-folding free sound for pod people and digital citizens. In the near future our brains will be implanted with sensors to identify “auditory medication”, which are easily cracked in order to live in a constantly lulled state in which the mind is fully active and the body outlives its use. Edition of 40 copies with full-color artwork printed on white vellum paper.

Body Morph – ‘The Three Mothers’ C60
A heavily effected miasma of dark reed and electronic madness. Abominable graven horns moan from rotting soil while corpses spasm from ancestral recall. A gluttonous soup bubbling and throbbing with emulsified plasma. An art edition of 8 numbered and signed copies. Full-color artwork, clear-gooped to classic “L” cassette cases w/stamped vellum insert.

Beast Flower Coiffeuse/Mossy Throats – ‘Membranes Bear Breaths of Traumatic Insemination’ split C30
A dual outpouring of unbalanced psychotic noise from Beast Flower Coiffeuse (Ivo Musa of Solange and Sensual Spasmo infamy) and the Mossy Throats. Three tracks each of solo maniac dungeon circuitry slashing from the outermost realms of exuberantly non-musical bloodlust. The strange only get stranger. Edition of 40 copies with full-color artwork printed on vellum paper.

Tremolo Ghosts/Worker Vs Parasite – ‘Gibraltar/акордеон” split C60
A radiant collection of cozy songs backed with a heavy cloud of deep drone.

Worker Vs Parasite’s piece “акордеон” was recorded live in Bristol January 2018. Members known only as Worker (accordion, noises) and Parasite (guitar, paintbrushes) produce a huge, stratified gust of fog that you will be happy to get lost within. Edition of 50 copies with full-color artwork printed on vellum paper.

Fatal Gaze – ‘Ritual Two’ C31
A lucid and unique grim drone offering from Ohio’s Fatal Gaze. The austere duo of Ty Owen and David Reed perform a pitch-black ritual of sooty and nebulous subterranean synth. Tactitions immersed in fathomless research producing and carefully recording the crepuscular and hideous results. Edition of 50 copies with xeroxed artwork printed on vellum paper.

Edition of 75 copies with full-color artwork printed on vellum paper.

Juice Machine – ‘Parallel Patterns’ C40
Jagged and florid electronic noise from Portland’s Juice Machine. These kaleidoscopic side-long trips down the prismatic rabbit hole are like candy to an extraterrestrial moth-humanoid architect, fueling its frantic and mucus-based design process. The viscous white-hot oily substance flows and hardens and multiplies until a structure is finally built, its purpose undecipherable. Its definitely not for us humans. Edition of 50 copies with full-color artwork printed on vellum paper.

Obozdur – ‘Raw Expressive Forms Vol.2’ C60
Stunning opaque raw noise from Obozdur (Kamensk Uralsky, Russia). A deep amplified harsh electronic torrent ripping the earth apart until the dust swirls into deep space.

Field Hymns

Larry Wish – ‘How More Can You Need?’ $7
The robot that makes the music for the claymation children’s public access shows since the 1970’s is pondering its future and slowly going mad. These days bring infrequent uses for a once wondrous machine: the robust glowing tubes that fueled its warm orange halo are dulled and less insistent. Perhaps inefficiency and glazing is precipitating this lack of clarity of self-purpose and intent. Over the years, our glorious robot has inched closer and closer to the tiny storeroom window and for the past five years has watched the small garden below the tv studio, a flower plot tended to by the maintenance man and his tiny, jolly wife. Now, with no purpose left in this cold, digital future, he still does according to his function, and through the floating dust motes, scores the scene outside. A day will go by and it will have only a stanza done, a line of code/music that keeps slipping, in pitch and in tempo. It fears the future, but it also fears futility, obsolescence, and being alone at the end of its days. In the past all these things have been anathema to the robot but in these last final years, as one force becomes cloudy, the other becomes clarity. It will go on, and there will be another spring. The suite must be done. And the bees still buzz.

Lips and Ribs – ‘Battle in Nagoya’ $7
The pounding of war drums never felt so warm, glamorous, and oddly enough, orange. By the time we reached Level Four to face the big boss, the team had stripped their DayGlo Body Glove war suits in favor of leather boxers and multi-scale camouflage torso paint, and blended in perfectly between the decay of the large appliance salvage yard and the borderlands of the forest. As the first salvo rained down upon us from on high, Team Leader Count Lips discharged a paint cannon, occluding a great deal of the large robots single eye, allowing us to quickly slip between its legs unchallenged and attack from the rear with our grenades and electro-pulse charges. With the last obstacle behind us, we finally lay sight upon our ancestral homeland, unseen by most of our team, green and verdant, stretching to the horizon behind the big boss like a undulating turquoise sea. Wordlessly charging in unison towards our destiny and perhaps glorious death, we feel the future on our faces like warm rain and the tides of history behind us, filling our footsteps with dark stars.

Oxykitten – ‘Gleeking the Cube’ $7
As Martina goes out to fetch the post, a small glowing orb glides in behind her, slowly picking up speed as it starts to circumnavigate the room. Still occupied with the stack of circulars, she does not notice as this curious floating pinball picks up speed, softly caroming off walls in a mostly silent tattoo, like a turbocharged housefly with some intelligent and deadly purpose. Round and round, in increased figure eight patterns from top to bottom, it weaves itself an increasingly tangled & tight pattern until, almost too quick to see, it finally finds (sees) the small door to the second landing and fires at rifle speed up the stairs, suddenly expanding exponentially into a flat disk that from the time it hits the top of the landing and rockets upward, has become the width of a small sitting room. The disk (room), aided by its velocity and strength, hits the ceiling with such force it explodes the roof clean off its moorings and into the sky. Flabbergasted neighbors later said that the roof flew straight up completely intact, unvarying in its ascent and speed until disappearing into the bright noon sun somewhere above Manchester.

STARCHILD – ‘Internal Alchemy’ CS
Kate Rose is Star Child, from Portland, Oregon.

Limited edition of 70, immediate audio download from Bandcamp.

EXPO 70 – ‘Mother Universe Has Birthed Her Last Cosmos’ CS/2xCD/LP
Collects the Universal Tonge and Small Doses “Ostara” 3”CDr tracks that have never been re-released. Newly mastered, the LP/CS downloads include 2 out-of-print cassette-only releases from Gold Soundz, “Woolgather Visions” and “Mechanical Elements”. “Mother Universe…” features Matt Hill from Umberto on analog drum machine, synth and bass alongside Justin Wright’s tripped-out guitar ambiance. The session was hugely inspired by Manuel Göttsching’s legendary recording “E2E4”. CS / LP (May) / 2xCD (Zoharum).

ML Wha – ‘The Divine Interval’ DL
Two automatic compositions exploring the ancient Sufi healing chord, Reiki symbols, and vocal overtoning. To utilize in sound healing applications: focus the deepest note on the root chakra, the middle tone on the solar plexus chakra, and the high tone on the throat chakra. Harmonize these areas and project the “healing wind” overtone to the specific area in need of healing. If you are able to visualize violet-colored emanations produced by the sound, send these also to the area in need. For JGW. CS on Flower Room Records.

Upside Down Recordings

CRISTIANO CAROSI – ‘Botanica’ C30 5€
“Botanica” is the first work published by Cristiano Carosi whih his real name. Moving to this new vest there’s the idea of “uncovering” unseen relashionships between sound objects, the research of new intersections and combinations through electronic instruments and synthesis filtered by effects and magnetic tapes like a diaphram for a fotographer impressing his film. “With my filters I dose the materials i play, find and record, different elements and couples of sounds, reproduced and observed while they re-grow together; I let them take their own space and time measuring this flow to keep and alterate the balance at the same time, leaving empty spaces and silence to a new dialogue”. He has recorded music with the shoegaze band Sea Dweller and is part of CYMBLS, a psychedelic band that experiments with sound and electronic with a minimal approach. With his solo project HERBAL RESEARCH he elaborates short studies of sound collage from samples, electronic synthesis and acoustic instruments on the tapes “Sound Non Sound” for Upside Down Recordings, his own label focused on experimental new sounds (Nastro, Filtro, Julien A.Lacroix, Angélica Castelló).

Angélica Castelló – ‘DOS CUACOCHIS’ C12 5€
Cuacochi in Nahuatl language means “to sleep in a tree”.
As a wind player myself I have always been particularly fascinated by the sound of the air through my instruments. As a performer and improviser I have developed a big palette of wind sounds, mixing them with related sounds such as static radio noise and white noise.
