Aircraft - Sideways/Backwards ()

LP edition of 250. Includes Download Code. Aircraft was the name Steve Cohen used for the largely unknown and quite fantastic synthesizer music he was creating in NYC in the ’80s. This was in the same period Steve was in the late-period No Wave band, China Shop, along with guitarist Naux (who would go on to play with the Voidoids) and percussionist Richard Edson (whose next band was Sonic Youth). Steve had been active in the NYC sub-underground since the ’70s, even playing at Giorgio Gomelsky’s legendary “Zu Music Festival” in 1978. Steve pops up playing bass on various odd sessions with various odd musicians like the late painter-turned-punker-turned-funkateer Snuky Tate, among others. But very few had heard the music… Read more »

The Lloyd Pack - On Holiday With… ()

LP Edition 0f 250. Includes Download Code. The Lloyd Pack is a project the prolific Dan Melchior has taken in a variety of directions. The band has been composed of various people, sometimes it’s large, sometimes it’s small, and the music’s nature has always been unpredictable. On Holiday, recorded at various places and assembled in Raleigh, NC, is one of the Pack’s small format efforts. For most of the music the only players are Mr. Melchior and vocalist Russell Walker (of the Pheromoans, among other bands). They are sometimes joined by Dan’s not-infrequent collaborator, Anthony Allman, and on one track by the late Letha Rodman Melchior (once the drummer of Ecstatic Peace combo, Cell). And unlike the Pack’s last LP,… 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 »

Andrew DR Abbott - Dead in Chellow Dean ()

LP Edition of 297. Co-Released with Cardinal Fuzz Cardinal Fuzz and Feeding Tube Records present the debut album by artist, musician and writer Andrew DR Abbott. Dead in Chellow Dean extends the themes and aesthetic introduced in his Live on Daisy Hill cassette released in 2018 by Bloxham Tapes and described by The Quietus as ‘a minor 21st century folk masterpiece’. Through a series of instrumental 8-string baritone acoustic guitar compositions, Abbott conveys a dark and disorientating journey through the beautifully derelict hinterlands of Bradford: the postindustrial city in the North of England where he lives. The core tracks of the album are joined together by collages of field recordings and improvisations on handmade instruments. Best known for his deafening… Read more »

Power Bottom - My Meat Is Alive ()

LP Edition of 100. Numbered. Download Slip Included.   psychedelicbabymag interview   From somewhere in rural Canada comes Power Bottom. The solo project of an anonymous being, My Meat is Alive is the first album we’ve heard that was created solely by voice, electronics, cymbal, tom-tom and sex toys. At least that’s what we’ve been told, and who the hell are we to argue with such a commanding figure? Two puny cis-normative gents cannot really hope to combat anything here. We can only report that the sounds astound. Power Bottom has put together an album that disorients in some of the most profound ways imaginable. The sound of a vibrator has a very physical quality (and semiotic heft) unequalled by… Read more »

bill bissett & Th Mandan Massacre - Awake In Th Red Desert ()

Obladada The Vinyl District LP / Download / Insert SPECIAL EDITION with Download / Insert / Signed Silk Screen Print /  Booklet Edition of 50.  For the first release in Feeding Tube’s Unknown Province series — a run of records dedicated to exploring little known nooks of the Canadian underground, curated by Alex Moskos — we are delighted to bring you the first vinyl reissue of the 1968 zoner masterpiece by poet Bill Bissett and his fellow Vancouver freaks. We have always been shocked this LP was not included on the NWW list, but Canadian releases often seem to exist in their own universe, so we suppose that’s the “explanation.” Because, in a list of any free-form freakouts, Awake in… Read more »

The Taxidermists - Tax ( / )

LP Edition of 250. 45rpm. Includes download. Second vinyl from this great Western Mass pop/punk duo, comprised of guitarist/vocalist Cooper Handy and drummer Salvadore McNamara. Their first album, Honesty Box (Telegraph Harp), was a super interesting blend of screwed-up Sonic Youth/Pavement textures and straight-up power-pop. It had weirdly addictive properties and ended up getting a good number of spins. So when a new album was ready, Ted Lee jumped on it like a badger attacking a kangaroo rat. And we’re glad he did. Tax leans a little bit more in the pop direction than its predecessor, but it still has plenty of odd touches that keep it from being anything like a readymade confection. Some of this is surely due… Read more »

Weeping Bong Band - II ()

LP Edition of 500. Includes insert / download code.   Raven Sings The Blues Review    Exclaim.Ca    Aquarium Drunkard   The Vinyl District – Graded On A Curve    Magnet Magazine    Following up on their eponymous debut LP, this Western Mass quintet has released a live album that expands their musical palette, while retaining the essential magic of their sound. Bill Meyer described Weeping Bong Band’s music as a collision between Popol Vuh’s Florian Fricke and Hash Jar Tempo (itself a collab between Bardo Pond and Roy Montgomery), and the same mix of drifty Germanic midnights and Bay Area Ballroom sizzle is present on Weeping Bong’s sophomore slab. Recorded at the 1794 Meeting House in New Salem, MA… Read more »

Jordan Perry - Jordan Perry ()

LP Edition of 300. Co-Release W/ Good Cry Records. Found the last box LPs Much needed reissue of the extremely limited 2017 debut LP by Virginia guitarist, Jordan Perry. We were turned on to it when Chris Guttmacher at Blue Bag Records in Cambridge told Kassie Richardson of Good Cry (who did the initial 100 pressing) to send us a copy. He thought we might be into it, and halfway into one spin we knew he was right. There have been several fat boatloads of acoustic guitar players floating across our turntable the past few years. And to be honest, we’ve dug the majority of them. Seems like there must be a lot of good stuff in the water, or… Read more »

Dredd Foole and the Din - Ghost Rider / Frankie Teardrop ( / )

Single Sided 12″ Edition of 200/Numbered. Found the last box of these gems…. Back in the early part of this century, Hadley MA was one center of sub-underground culture that got less cred than other spots in the Valley, largely because the prime live venue there, Hangar One, got shuttered in the ’80s. A strip of malls and chain restaurants, Hadley seemed an unlikely spot for interesting aktions. Still, Chris Corsano lived and rehearsed in a crappy little house there for a while, and it was also the site of the first Apostasy Records house. And how many towns can say that? Anyway, Halloween 2002 rolls along and someone gets the bright idea to do an evening of underground cover bands… Read more »
