The Taxidermists - Tax ( / )

LP Edition of 250. 45rpm. Includes download. Second vinyl from this great Western Mass pop/punk duo, comprised of guitarist/vocalist Cooper Handy and drummer Salvadore McNamara. Their first album, Honesty Box (Telegraph Harp), was a super interesting blend of screwed-up Sonic Youth/Pavement textures and straight-up power-pop. It had weirdly addictive properties and ended up getting a good number of spins. So when a new album was ready, Ted Lee jumped on it like a badger attacking a kangaroo rat. And we’re glad he did. Tax leans a little bit more in the pop direction than its predecessor, but it still has plenty of odd touches that keep it from being anything like a readymade confection. Some of this is surely due… Read more »

The Left Outsides - There Is A Place ( / )

LP Edition of 300 Co-Released with Cardinal Fuzz Release Date – September 27th – Pre-Orders Available –  A new reissue of this masterpiece by the Left Outsides, originally issued on cassette in 2015, then first put to vinyl in 2017, as the long-format follow-up to the classic The Shape of Things to Come LP (FTR387). The current edition is demarcated by a glossy cover and metallic gold printing. Its music remains as timeless a gust of dark autumnal wind as any you’ll ever hear. Some of the music here was written as part of the soundtrack to Gus Alavrez’s 2009 noir-pastoral short, Stand and Deliver, but the songs evoke their own host of images. The band, consisting of Alison Cotton… Read more »

Mosquitoes - Vortex Veering Back To Venus ( / )

12″ (45rpm) Edition of 250 Release Date – September 27th – Pre-Order Available  Rum Music For August Reviewed By Jennifer Lucy Allan I Feel Like A Porsche The aural pleasure created by this somewhat mysterious trio of London musicians continues to accrue. After two fine self-released records (one a 7”, th’ other a 12”), and the superb Drip Water Hollow Out Stone on the great Ever/Never label, Feeding Tube is honored to present the Mosquitoes’s latest assault on the temples of beauty. The music on Vortex is of a piece with earlier recordings. By this, I mean there is a wonderfully “out” approach to basic rock instrumentation and vocals, which detourns the basic assumptions listeners have about what rock instruments… Read more »

Knight Howls - Knight Howls ( / )

12″ (45rpm) Edition of 200. with Download Code Love undertakes new challenges heroically. Open minds and hearts, mixed with inscrutable aesthetic lexicons, can make for a magnificent experience. To wit: Knight Howls, the duo of Frank Hurricane and ARKM Foam, two unpredictable kindred spirits wholly idiosyncratic in their approach to sound, music, and whatever might live in between and beyond those things.  But yeah, what exactly is this Knight Howls record?  It’s a funhouse just daring you not to understand it. There are howls, murky breaths, holy psychedelic threats of violence, inexplicable chants, enigmatic field recordings of outdoor activities, and plenty of raw, weird thoughts. There’s a perverse narrative, I think, but far be it from me to figure it… Read more »

Maxine Funke - Home Fi ( / )

12″ (45rpm) includes Download Code. Edition of 400. OUT OF PRINT! Copies still available at Forced Exposure Vinylization of the recent home fi cassette (originally released on the Australian Brierfirld Flood Press label) by this magnificent New Zealand singer/songwriter. We were never able to score a copy of the tape, despite the fact we released Maxine’s last LP, Silk FTR 410), so we figured we would perform the public service of making it generally available to the whole wide world. That’s just the kind of guys we are! Recorded in stark and simple terms, home fi represents Ms. Funke working mostly with just acoustic guitar accompaniment. And it’s a classic. Most often, I’m put in mind of the Dandelion era… Read more »

Lilith Outcome - ST ( / )

7″ with download code. Edition of 200. Bandcamp.  Zach Phillips: wurlitzer elec. piano, songs, arrangement & recording; Marlon Cherry: percussion; Ryan Power: bass; Annakalmia Traver, Billy McShane, & Derek Baron: flutes. “In any case, we have discovered that the locking-up concerns an empty space, and is effected by means of a key…” — Georg Groddeck “It sounds like you’re doing most of the work, but that’s okay.” — Cleopatra Mathis, my mother Recorded 5/22/18 at Tomato House live to mono Marantz cassette Album cover by Leon Sandstone

Jerman Barnes - The Finger’d Remove ( / )

LP (45 RPM) Edition of 200 with Download Code. Jerman Barnes sounds like fancy men’s shoe brand, but it’s actually a duo comprised of two of the American underground’s most prolific wanderers — Jeph Jerman and Tim Barnes. Jeph had explored everything from primitively brilliant free jazz with Blowhole to deep electronic explorations under the name Hands To, although in the latter part of the ’90s he shifted his focus to music made with found natural objects. Tim Barnes entered our consciousness as fluent master of experimentally canted percussion before he threw us a curve by joining Matt Valentine’s Tower Recordings ensemble and going deep-prole for a while. Regardless, he and Jeph started releasing duo recordings almost 15 years ago,… Read more »

Palberta - Hot On The Beach ( / )

LP Edition of 360. Remixed, remade, remodeled vinylization of Palberta’s JMC Aggregate cassette of 2016. Hot on the Beach is another great leap sideways by this glorious post-tongue trio. The four brutarian tracks on the a-side are shards of songs reductive enough to have earned their “no wave” deal of approval without breaking a sweat. But as usual, Anina Lily and Nina manage to make this ug-thrust co-exist with a whacked-out feel more in line with late ’70s UK scribblers like the Raincoats or Big in Japan. Really fine. On the second side they do a single extended track called “Prolly for the Best” that sounds something like a dance 12” released by 99 Records, recorded anonymously and very drunkenly… Read more »

Curse Purse - Curse Purse with Gary Panter ( / )

12″ Tour Edition of 50. Numbered. Out Of Print. Because their debut 12” was such a marvel, Curse Purse decided revisit the format, and this time they hauled along guitarist Gary Panter for a ride in the clown car. For those who have never experienced them, Curse Purse (the basic) is a trio with Olivia Kennett on suqeedles and voice, Matt Robidoux on guitar and voice, and “Ted” Lee on drum, guitar and voice. To them, form is nothing but an obstacle to be overcome and parodied. And though he has proven himself to be a thoughtful and cunning string agent in most settings, it appears these three scalawags have subverted the approach of Mr. Panter as well. The sound… Read more »

(New England) Patriots, Palberta - Special Worship ( / )

Palberta / (New England) Patriots “Special Worship” 12″ 45rpm / Insert / Download / Numbered SECOND PRESSING – CLEAR VINYL – Edition of 100 FIRST PRESSING – OUT OF PRINT! Edition of 250 Released to coincide with a tour shared by these two monsters of the uncharted North, Special Worship is only the second vinyl dab by Boston’s (NE) Pats, and the first wax by the Hudson Valley’s Palberta. The (NE) Pats revel in squealing feedback, raunchy spuzz-riffs and mutable vocals that make me think of a cross between the Cows and some weird Texas just pre-core punk bands whose named I can’t recall. Rough, woozy and powerful, even though the trio sports no bassist, the (NE) Pats (who previously shared… Read more »
