Fred Lane and his Disheveled Monkeybiters - Icepick To The Moon ()

2nd Pressing Edition of 400 with download code.Pressed in Transparent Green Vinyl LP Edition of 400 with download code.  OUT OF PRINT. More copies available at Forced Exposure  A Man Of Two Names Rev.Fred Lane: When in Rome, DON’T Do As The Romans D0 The Vinyl District  Amazingly, here is the glorious (long-delayed) follow-up to Fred Lane’s 1988 Shimmy Disc LP, Car Radio Jerome. In the wake of that surreal masterpiece, Shimmy announced an LP called Icepick to the Moon, but it took 31 years to wrestle this slab of bacon to the mat. And you’ll be glad we did. Icepick takes up where Jerome left off. As inhabited by visual artist, Tim Reed, “Fred Lane” (I’ll drop the quote… Read more »

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 »

Liz Durette - Delight ()

LP Edition of 250 A very whacked new outing from Baltimore keyboard genius Liz Durette. Her earlier albums had a certain avant jazz approach, tempered perhaps by certain new music proclivities. And while I do not doubt she still has the chops for such things, Delight is a horse of an entirely different color. What’s here was all done on keyboards, but at times it sounds like insane calliope music for wicked children with a taste for that old waltz beat. The whole first side could be the soundtrack for a surreal film about dead Viennese courtiers high-stepping their way around the Bardo as though it were a hedge maze. The more I listen to the record, the more circular… Read more »

Joseph Allred - Traveler ()

LP Edition of 300 . includes download Welcome to the second album we’ve done with string maestro, Joseph Allred. Unlike O Meadowlark (FTR 451), this one features a smattering of Joseph’s vocals, although his main thrust is still glistening instrumentals. The title song is a goddamn sad one, sung with reedy elegance, dealing with a kidnapped dog that serves as a stand-in for all earthly beings, full of both frailty and resilience. Another vocal track, “The Crown” (which inspired the cover art), stems from a long conversation Joseph had with Max Ochs. It squeezes the inherently surreal aspects of dream-walking into semi-conventional blues tautology, and the fit is just right. The third and last vocal, “O Columbia,” is a particular… Read more »

Sore Eros - Sore Eros ()

2lp Edition of 200. Includes download and poster. OUT OF PRINT (on our end) available copies at Forced Exposure After five long years of waiting, rural psych masters, Sore Eros, return with an extended statement of purpose. Although their partial spatial dislocation from Western Mass has seemly rendered them a studio-oriented outfit, the lovely tangles of sound they create are as optimally fried as ever. The album was helmed by engineer/producer Adam Granduciel (The War on Drugs) who was the only one capable of coaxing the whole band into the studio. Aided by players like Daniel Oxenberg (ex-Supreme Dicks) and Kurt Vile (ex-Nest of Saws), the music on Sore Eros was recorded between Philly and L.A., and seems to owe… Read more »

CD Edition of 500. Ghettoblaster Video Premiere “Comet” DNA Music Video Little Things Music Video Home Body Bandcamp Audio Femme Vents Magazine Broadway World It takes audacity to start a song with questions as big and unanswerable as “Where did we come from? Who are we really?” But for Western Massachsuetts duo Home Body, those kind of grand cosmic queries are totally natural, fitting snugly into music that digs deep and shoots for the stars. The soaring voice of Haley Morgan and the throbbing, hovering electronics of Eric Hnatow create… Read more »

Matthew J. Rolin - Matthew J. Rolin ()

LP Edition of 250 OUT OF PRINT We’re excited to release the debut solo LP by Matthew J. Rolin, currently a resident of Columbus Ohio. Rolin cut his teeth with garage and psych outfits in Cleveland, appearing on vinyl by Shoreway, and Nowhere before he found himself adrift and wandering in the direction of Chicago at the end of 2016. Matthew had always been a fan of Jim O’Rourke’s brilliant Bad Timing LP (Drag City, 1997), and when he caught a set by Ryley Walker soon after arriving in the city, he decided to throw himself into developing his acoustic chops. Without really knowing much about the history or context of the American Primitive/Concert Steel String scene, he managed to… Read more »

Million Brazilians - Urban Fossickated Octave ()

LP edition of 250. Beautiful new LP (the seventh, I believe), from this wonderfully abstract outfit, who were birthed in the shadow of Smegma (Portland, OR), but have since relocated to Maine.  The foundational members of the band are Grant Corum (keyboards, vocals, tin whistle, vocals) and Suzanne Stone (alto sax, khene, vocals). For this album, recorded by Big Blood’s Caleb Mulkerin, they are joined by Caleb himself (tape loops & treatments) and Tom Kovacevic (piano & synth), both of whom played together back in Cerberus Shoals. The quartet is hot. Even when it’s a trio.  The music has a blocked-out and dreamy quality, with jazzoid touches and perhaps less of an ethnographic quality than some of the band’s work….

Soloriens Native Unity Quartet featuring Marshall Allen - Aerials and Antennas ()

LP Edition of 500 Co-release with Ornesco This first vinyl offering by a sporadically  20-something years unit, still extant, originally assembled under the name Cinema Soloriens by filmmaker/musician James Harrar in 1993, to play accompaniment to his films. The line-up usually includes legendary Sun Ra alto master (and current Arkestra leader) Marshall Allen with Harrar (who is also known for his work with Arthur Doyle and Daevid Allen), plus whoever else is tapped. For this date, recorded in Nashville back in 2016, the quartet was completed by a pair of under-documented musicians from the Atlanta underground — jazz percussionist, Kenito Murray, and new music-oriented bassist,  Maxwell Boecker. Together, the quartet unspools out two side long gushes of splotchy pan-generic FLOW…. Read more »

Mosquitoes - Vortex Veering Back To Venus ( / )

12″ (45rpm) Edition of 250 1st Pressing – Out Of Print  2nd pressing – transparent mint color vinyl  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… Read more »
