Donkey No No - The Psychedelic Peel ( / )

LP Edition of 28. Numbered. OUT OF PRINT Bandcamp for the digital lovers… First new lathe of the year by this resiliently blasted Western Mass trio. Omeed Goodarzi (guitar), Jenifer Gelineau (violin) and Ted Lee (cymbal) get together ‘most every week to squink out the jams. Gary Panter guested on guitar at a recent hoot, but he was too damn scared (or maybe wasted) to do much plucking. “Those guys are too telepathic when they play,” he said. “It’s hard to feel like you can fit anything else in.” Their approach here is of a piece with earlier DNN recordings — strings and cymbals slide against wordless vocals, or arch themselves into a flight to nowhere. A few birdies chirp… Read more »

The Left Outsides - There Is A Place ( / )

LP Edition of 300 Co-Released with Cardinal Fuzz 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 and Mark Nicholas (once of the beautifully Fairport-tinged, 18th… Read more »

Donkey No No - 6.13.17 ( / )

Edition of 20. Numbered.  12″ lathe. Out Of Print Unlike some of their more deviously zoned sessions, this recording catches Donkey No No in a reflective and ruralist mood. Omeed’s guitars, Jen’s violin, and Ted’s bowed cymbal all sound like something Bob Dylan would have listened to as a way of negating a bad hangover while on the Rolling Thunder tour. Notes and drones are carefully placed, allowing lots of breathing room to exist on their margins. Probably so that Bob’s head can stop its throbbing. And one can easily imagine, Dylan, sitting on the commode, slowly chewing on an Egg McMuffin, while he awaits the arrival of his poop de jour, wondering what it would sound like if Bruce… Read more »

Lauri McNamara - Carmen Of Ohio / Older, Sicker ( / )

Lauri McNamara “Carmen Of Ohio / Older, Sicker” 7″ Lathe Edition of 20 SOLD OUT!  Inside the context of Egg Eggs, Ms. McNamara has becomes known as a utility noise-generator on several instruments. On this solo set, however, she points her ukelele in the direction of something more closely resembling the New England völk tradition, doing a few femme-voiced readymades, although by doing them on a uke she kinda subverts any real tradition we can think of. But it is a mightily upful effort.   – Byron Coley, 2014
