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

LP Edition of 200. Digital Download Included. Release Date – June 1st, 2018 – Pre-Order Available – 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… Read more »

Gary Wilson - Gary Saw Linda Last Night Kissing John Cage / Duet For Piano And Drums ()

LP Edition of 100. Numbered. Comes with Digital Download.  Pressed in psychedelic Sludge Splatter Of all the Gary Wilson LPs that Feeding Tube has done — and there are many of them — this baby has to be counted among the weirdest. Which is saying a mouthful and then some. The first side was recorded at Issue Project Room in January 2014. Gary plays his baby grand piano, does vocals and organized all of the taped bits (from You Think You Really Know Me and other sources) into a mind-numbing collage of disorganized philosophical reasoning. Is it real or Memorex? Only the gods know for sure. Gary’s accompanied by his band, but they’re all playing synths and springs and prosthetic… Read more »

Mette Rasmussen / Tashi Dorji - Mette Rasmussen / Tashi Dorji ()

Tour CS with Download Slip Edition of 200 LP Edition of 250 Release Date June 1st, 2018 Mette Rasmussen is a Danish saxophonist, based in Norway, who has been recording with some of our favorite players (Chris Corsano, Alan Silva, Mats Gustafsson, Ace Farren Ford, etc.) She has also formed this duo with Asheville-based guitarist, Tashi Dorji (whose combo, Manas, has had two LPs on Feeding Tube this far — FTR208 & FTR330). The duo material for this LP was recorded in Montreal, right around the same time Mette and Tashi recorded a trio set for Trost (with the addition of drummer Tyler Damon). And it’s all great stuff. Mette’s playing has a raw tonal approach that makes one think… Read more »

Shutaro Noguchi - Love Super Terranean ()

LP. Edition of 250. Release Date June 29th, 2018 – Pre-Order Available. Debut album by a wonderful Louisville-based guitarist/vocalist we happened upon at the 2017 Cropped Out Festival. Mr. Noguchi had recorded with Jim Marlowe on the Equipment Pointed Ankh cassette Sophomore Lounge put out, but who could fucking remember that? Not us, so we were bowled over by the powerfully loud free-psych guitar set Shutaro’s band played in the afternoon. FTR Boss Ted inquired of him as to whether he might have some recordings that were along the same lines. He said he did, and here they are. The tracks are partially like what his live set made us expect, but they go a lot of other dang places… Read more »

New Parents - Transient Response ()

LP Edition of 200. Release Date – June 1st, 2018. Pre-Order Available. 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… Read more »

papalordgod - the sheik of downfall creek ()

Edition of 250. Release Date – June 15th, 2018 – PreOrder Available  Debut LP by Brisbane’s brilliant Greg Hilleard, who we first heard when he was part of the incredible Lost Domain. the sheik is a solo album that makes us think of a summit between the Gibson bros and Parachute-era Eugene Chadbourne (or something equally far-fetched). Pretty amazing by any yardstick. Anyway, Greg had a few words he wanted to share. -Byron Coley, 2018 Here they are: CELEBRATING 200 YEARS OF ROCK N ROLL Former “leader” of Brisbane’s premier room-clearers Strontium Dog (apologies to PORK), whose one and only record is terrible beyond belief (all surviving members agree). Shortly after the timely demise of SD, Gregory was asked to… Read more »

Mazozma - Stark Joy

LP Edition of 200. Co-Release with Mystra Records Release Date – June 1st, 2018 – Preorder available. There is something very special about the sound of a bummed-out smart person alone in a room somewhere (studio or not) with just their guitar for solace. Many killer examples of the form exist — Skip Spence’s Oar, Pip Proud’s Adrenaline & Richard, Roy Montgomery’s 324 E. 13th Street #7, and so on. All of these records shine with very spevial darkness. To this list, I submit the new Mazozma LP,  Stark Joy. Kentucky ex-pat, Mike Turner has been using this recording handle for a while. We did one previous album with him, Heavy Death Head (FTR 268), and like most of his… Read more »

Wet Tuna - Livin’ the Die ()

LP Edition of 500 TinyMixTapes The Wire Review by Emily Bick Utterly boo-licious debut slab by this new duo, made up of Matt “MV” Valentine and Pat “P.G. Six” Gubler, who have been in cahoots since the near-forgotten days of Memphis Luxure. The pair (mostly known for guitar-aktion) create a full band’s worth of jams using percussion and keys and all-else. The results make for one of the more mind-melting platters to’ve hit the Valley in a good while. Like many of the best sides this pair has been associated with, the music on Livin’ the Die is an elegant balance of ramble and spear. The songs’ formats are as loose as Earl Butz’s shoes but each of them is… Read more »

Currituck Co. - Sleepwalks In The Garden Of The Deadroom ()

LP with Insert / Download. Edition of 300. Finally, in 2018, the full and correct version of Currituck Co.’s fourth album is made public. The operating handle of guitarist Kevin Barker, one of the best players to emerge from the Mid-Atlantic völk underground of the early oughts, Currituck Co. cut five albums between 2000 and 2005, all of which are gorgeous. The original CD version of Sleepwalks, however, released by Track & Field in 2004, was shorn of  couple of tracks and featured re-recorded vocals Kevin always thought were a bit naff. This came up in conversation with Kevin a while back, and we offered to right a grievous wrong. The result is this beauty, which has a few extra… Read more »
