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

Tour CS with Download Slip Edition of 200 LP Edition of 250 with Download.  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 of Eric Dolphy… Read more »

Foom & Foam - Foom & Foam ()

LP with DL Slip. Edition of 450 Co-Release with WeirdEar Records! Documentation of a rare summit meet by two of New England’s stranger musical figurines, recorded at the Whitehaus in Jamaica Plain, MA back in 2012. The piece was created as a sort of dub battle showdown, with FOOM’s turntables and Foam’s cassettes & doodads all plugged into a 4 track and lit the fuck up. The jams here are languidly-paced, in comparison to a lot of contemporary assemblage, and the instant compositions unfold in way that puts one in mind of classic work by the L.A.F.M.S. Too often these days, music with some of the same experimental approach as is heard on FOOM & FOAM is either done at… Read more »

Dead Girl's Party - The Thing’s Ive Lost ()

LP Edition of 300. Download Slip Included. Recorded in fits and starts, while the artists worked on their moontans amidst strong waters, the sole release by Dead Girls Party was originally issued on cassette by the Entr’acte label. Since that tape now goes for a ben-and-a-half, we realized it was time to make a vinyl document of these young jazz immortals. Scott “Pfennig” Foust (XX Committee, IFCO, Tart & the founding philosopher of the Anti-Natural movement) and Matt “Ha’Penny” Krefting (Son of Earth, Believers, Duck, MK Unit, etc.) decided to do this stuff because they were hanging out a bunch, and 2009 seemed like a “down” year to them. What better to inflate its core than a totally-inscrutable duo, dedicated… Read more »

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. 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 are the most excellent results. Because van den Dobbelsteen’s… Read more »

Mazozma - Stark Joy

LP Edition of 200. Co-Release with Mystra Records Whats So Funny / In love music video  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 solo… 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 »

Louise Bock - Repetitives in Illocality ()

LP Edition of 300. Louise Bock is one of the performing names worn by Taralie Peterson of that most excellent duo, Spires That in the Sunset Rise. And the music on Repetitives in Illocality recalls a few aspects of Spires’ recent live shows. It’s akin to a dreamily aggressive take on the outer fringes of early ECM-style improvisation. A lovely hover between out-chamber-jazz, new music and the unknown tongue. Using cello, sax and treated lap harp, Louise Bock creates surfaces that are sometimes as chopped as ice sculptures made with a chainsaw, and at other moments as smooth as the soft expanse of Brian Eno’s forehead. Those passages where the cello takes the lead are the most serious. Some passages,… Read more »
