Climax Landers - Climax Landers ()

LP Edition of 100. With Digital Download / Booklet Like the Monkees, the Monks, the Mops and Mozart before them, Climax Landers are a band with a theme song. It is a theme song they use to both begin and end their beguiling debut LP, and the tune itself is catchy as hell. We were first made aware of this Brooklyn based quartet by the fact that two players with whom we’ve previously worked are members of the quartet. Drummer Anina Ivry Block of Palberta (FTR 166, 168, 207, 249) and guitarist Paco Cathcart of The Cradle (FTRCS 215) and Big Neck Police (FTR 246) are both putting in serious effort here, along with leader Will Moloney and bassist Charlie… Read more »

Bang! Bros. - Hard Rocks Vol.21 ()

LP Edition of 200. Digital Download Included. Unlike the last Bang! Bros. record we did (12/12/12, FTR170), this one’s frilly style was not dictated so much by a date as by time. According the jacket’s notations, it was recorded in less than an hour in October, 2016. What? You might cry. What kind of a goddamn record can be recorded in under an hour? We’d like to point out that such live classics as Metallic K.O and Mars Live at Artists Space were recorded inside those temporal parameters. Futhermore, we should point out that Bang! Bros. are a duo who live by the rules of real time interaction. They do not attempt to step in the same river twice. Theirs… Read more »

Jan Van Den Dobbelsteen - Kringloop / New Adventures ()

LP Edition of 200. Includes Digital Download. Release Date – July 13th, 2018 – Pre-Order Available Feeding Tube Records is proud to present the first U.S. LP by Dutch experimental artist Jan van den Dobbelsteen. Jan has been releasing music, non-music and kinda-music on his Cosmic Volume label since 1978. Often these works are connected to visual exhibits or installations, but they also work as standalone sound events.  We had been tracking Jan’s work for a good long while, but it was only after Phil Milstein told us he was friends of Jan and his partner, Danielle Lemaire, that our wheels began to spin. (They had sponsored Milstein’s show-and-tell song-poem trip to the Low Countries.) Introductions were made, and here… Read more »

New Parents - Transient Response ()

LP Edition of 200. Debut album by this Turners Falls-based quartet led by Adam Langellotti of Sore Eros and widely hailed for his engineering work. The sound on Transient Response is languid ruralist prog-pop, with help from Gary War, Ma Turner, Shannon & Beverly Ketch, and other Valley travelers. New Parents can be pretty raw live, but the overall vibe here is smoother and distinctly out-of-time. Different segments remind me of everything from Fraser & DeBolt to Brinsley Schwarz to Great Plains and back again. Something about the way the production is layered gives the record a feel quite redolent of the early ’70s, but the more you play it, the clearer its contemporary origins become. Amongst the classic rock… Read more »

Eric Arn & Margaret Unknown - Paraza Corta ()

LP with Download Slip. Edition of 250. Release Date – July 27th – Pre-Order Available For his second Feeding Tube LP, following the superb solo outing Orphic Resonance (FTR281), Eric Arn has chosen to team up with the Austrian shapeshifter Margaret Unknown (aka Max Bogner), for a set of acoustic guitar duets. Eric’s history is well known via solo work, duets with Tom Carter, and hard psych playing from his pre-Vienna days with both Primordial Undermind and Crystalized Movements. We knew Margaret mostly for his work with (In) The Abyssity of the Grounds, who backed Linda Sharrock on her massive Gods 3LP set (which should be a fixture in every home). Recorded live at the mo.ë space in Vienna, Paranza… Read more »

Chris Corsano, Paul Flaherty - The Hated Music ()

2LP with Download Slip. Edition of 500. Cover art by Gary Panter Release Date – August 10th – Pre-Order Available. Hard to believe it has been 18 years since this set was first issued, but that’s what the calendar says. Paul and Chris had been playing together for a while before this. I seem to recall rehearsals outdoors in Hartford beneath stretches of raised highway under construction. But that may have been Chris and Pete Nolan, back when Pete played guitar. Who can remember exactly? It’s been a long time. But I do remember we put this set together because it seemed essential to document how amazing the communication was between these two musicians, from different generations, but tuned into… Read more »

Charles K. Noyes & Owen Maercks with Henry Kaiser and Greg Goodman - Free Mammals ()

LP Inserts / Download Slip. Edition of 500.Release Date – August 10th, 2018 – Pre-Order Available – Reissue of an exceptional album of improvisations, recorded when percussionist Charles K. Noyes was lured to the Bay Area in the summer of 1979 by Henry Kaiser. Noyes and Maercks had played regularly as a duo when Owen was still based in Worcester, MA. But he’d shifted his ass westward in the wake of the Teenage Sex Therapist session (FTR 153), which had been organized by Kaiser following their collaborations in the band, Monster Island. Half of the album was recorded live at Woody Woodman’s Finger Palace, with Kaiser on guitar and Greg Goodman on piano. The web of cluttered notes and interwoven… Read more »

Stefan Neville & Greg Malcolm - A Nuance ()

LP Edition of 250. Download Slip Included. Release Date – July 27th, 2018  – Pre-Order Available – Stefan Neville is one of the busier beavers on the North island of New Zealand. Recording under his own name, as Pumice (or a variety of other soubriquets), running the Stabbies & the Rockets label, drumming for the Coolies and so on, he keeps his tail moving quickly so that it does not grow moss. Greg Malcolm is one of New Zealand’s premier avant garde string-benders. He did a bit of band aktion with Jay Clarkson in Breathing Cage, but has mostly hewed to stranger improv-based roads. He plays oddly crafted guitar-like instruments of all manners, and has lots of great solo recordings… Read more »

Dial - Noise Opera ()

LP Edition of 250. Download Slip Included. Release Date – August 10th, 2018 – Pre-Order Available – We were first attuned to Dial by Bill Nace back in the early days of this century. He’d been sent over the moon by the incredible squall of the unit, a trio led by former UT-guitarist Jacqui Ham. We were so blown away by the re-emergence of Jacqui, we didn’t even try to figure out who the other players were. But it turns out the other two dudes were Rob Smith, a most immaculate manipulator of drum dials and guitar feedback, and synth-pillager/bassist Dominic Weeks, who’d been in the most insane Rough Trade band of all times — Furious Pig. This was news… Read more »

MB Jones - By MB Jones ()

LP Edition of 250. Includes DL Slip. Release Date July 27th – Pre-Order Available  Matt “MB” Jones has long been kicking back and forth between the Valley and Asia. His recordings with Jee Jee Band have reflected this duality. And this new “solo” album, recorded mostly in his original backyard with a cast of local hottentots (Conrad Capistran, Tim Sheldon, John Moloney, etc.) continues this vibe, while changing it in many subtle ways. The K-Pop readymades of the Jee Jee Band’s Glass Fish LP have continued to drift out of Matt’s repertoire. This remodeling began on Jee Jee’s Holy Yolk LP (FTR 304), and by this point the hints are still there if you know where to look for them,… Read more »
