Lighten Up Sounds

NEW GLUE – ‘The Electric Path’ C34 $7
Real-room hardware pulse and meditative sinewave electrolysis, a cooling balm for burning brains. Long time collaborators Jason Millard and Matthew Himes join forces to deliver a codified transcript of kosmische momentum and damaged navigation, “Sticks like glue” as they say. Raw language ala fried diode from a heavy lidded perspective. Way back in 2011 the boys had a project called GLUE CLINIC, releasing only one self-titled cassette (LUS-037) and playing a handful of gigs before eventually disappearing. Thankfully they’ve now reunited to return as NEW GLUE, with a gurgling long player of evaporated rhythm and communique interference, an eloquent ambience for these times of trauma. Freshly born in solvent-based form, unveiled here as synthetic poly-resin carefully prepared for superior mechanical adhesion. Real time duplicated white shell Type II Chrome c34 with lacquer sealed labels comes packaged with b/w Op-Art on 60 lb art paper J-card in clear Norelco case. Hand-numbered edition of 25 copies.

Shaky Tooth Tapes

Mincer Ray – ‘Turkish Outhouse’
Mincer Ray is in the air. First Cate died. Later Sean died. In between Endai disappeared. Graham is still around – splicing together lost tapes, temporary Germans, and sounds from beyond our earthly borders in a desperate attempt to soothe a lust for revenge & connect with dead pals as he awaits the hand of Corona to bring him to home.

Yitt – ‘Facebook or After the Attack of the Insect Robot Aliens’
Yitt McCawlk is an ex-social-media-statistics-rat turned messiah after decoding an ancient HTML script from the darkweb. The album resulting from this transformative experience is an insectoid hive-mind end-of-days tale in the form of disembodied song and dance. A new better bible if you will.

Scratch Pants – ‘Dog Bones’
Good fun & good energy leak from the pores of Betty, Irene, & el Rondo deVille as they slip & slide through distorted tunes. It’s not perfect, but it is representative.

Fire is Free

Agreeable Goldmines – ‘Black Meditation’
Agreeable Goldmines lifts the veil on 3 new shimmering and shuddering drone pieces recorded late in 2019 and released as an accompaniment to the new full length recording Black Opals. Though brief, the session captured here contains enough depth and movement to warrant repeat listens. The mixes on this version incorporate sources recorded on a blues harp mic acquired from Sir Richard Bishop. One-time CDr edition of 20. $5 shipped US.

Agreeable Goldmines – ‘Black Opals’
The third in a trio of new releases from Agreeable Goldmines, this album represent the first new recordings from the project in over 3 years, recorded and re-recorded starting in 2018. This is easily the most variable album in the AG catalog, wandering freely between acoustic and electric guitar drones, no-input mixer feedback, shambling psychedelic folk, and a blues number. One-time CDr edition of 20. $5 shipped US.

Yasuyuki Uesugi – ‘Daily Mutations In Genes Change My Spiritual World Little By Little’
Fire Is Free awakens from its slumber to put forth this slab of Dark and Heavenly beauty, the first ever international release for the label. Yasuyuki Uesugi hails from Hokkaido Japan and uses custom JMT analog electronics to create hypnotic, flowing walls of harsh noise. One-time CDr edition of 50 copies with hand numbered 2 sided insert. $7 shipped US.

Galtta

Max Zuckerman – ‘The Corner Office’
Finally, a record that will speak to the CEOs, investment bankers, consolidated retail, and corporate interests. Enough with all the songs about the “poor little guy living on the margins of society” already – this one is for the proud winners at the top of the food chain! Max Zuckerman (Blue Jazz TV, LLC) has set to level the scales. Imagine a beautiful life spent in pursuit of pleasure and wealth; rich synth tones, golden hooks, lush choruses, reverbs of the likes you can only find in the finest of bath houses. “The Corner Office” describes the many characters that traverse the top echelons of our society. Influenced by the sounds of Japanese City Pop and 80’s boogie, “The Corner Office” aspires to the high production values of that golden age of budget-less studio recording. With some smooth saxophone help from record executive and CEO, David ‘Fingers’ Lackner, the songs challenge the listener to just accept their lowly place in society, trickle down a suntory hi-ball, and shake a leg!
