Jeffrey Alexander - Flutterings ()

CD Edition of 300. Release Date – July 8th, 2022 – Preorder available –  Jeffrey Alexander is one of those guys whose brain and hands are constantly in motion whether working with bands, doing solo stuff, installations, paintings, label shit…whatever. Anyway, he’s always a pleasure to work with, and we have done so on many occasions. That said, I sorta feel as though this new CD might be closer to taking a walk through Jeffrey’s head than anything else I’ve heard. Flutterings was done using guitars, keys, percussion, electronics and gimcracks of all descriptions. The pieces were created specifically to be used inside the Tactile Dome at San Francisco’s Exploratorium, which is one of the more delightful places yet invented… Read more »

lloyd Thayer - Twenty20 ()

CD Edition of 300.   Bandcamp Release Date – July 15th, 2022 – Preorder Available –  It has been a couple of years (that felt like a lifetime) since we released lloyd Thayer’s last album, Duets (FTR406), which he recorded with the drummer Jerome Deupree. The intervening time has been weird as hell, but Thayer (master of every string that’s ever been strung) has made the decision to create a fantastic,  sprawling solo suite for himself. And now it is time to share the beauty with you. Unlike the music on Duets, the piece here was played entirely on double-necked Weissenborn guitar, although the sounds are altered and layered in a ways that are a far cry from the delicate… Read more »

Wednesday Knudsen - Soft Focus: Volumes One and Two ()

CD Edition of 400. Bandcamp.  First off, I should probably mention that this CD contains what might one day be two separate LPs. But if you have even a scintilla of info about the state of record pressing these days, you’ll also know that all our best laid plans could go sideways. Fast. Still, this is a damn nice way to hear all this music without a lot of the endless huffing and puffing required by the flipping of individual LPs. Which means, for now you can just let the sweet swelter of Soft Focus wash over you like a warm, mid-summer wave on a tropical island. And if you want to have a cocktail while listening, go right ahead…. Read more »

Myriam Gendron - Ma Delire ( / )

SECOND PRESSING – Quebec City edition. 2LP. Bandcamp link. / CD Edition of 800. / Cassette Edition of 200. 2nd Edition  – It has been a while since the release Myriam’s acclaimed 2014 debut album, Not So Deep As a Well (FTR 148). The intervening years have brought a smattering of live performances, a bouquet of children, Trump’s Pandemic, and much more. For someone who likes to read and ponder as much as Ms. Gendron does, there has been plenty to mull over. Different concepts for a new album were broached, but the seed of Ma Delire was planted when Myriam recalled a paper she written in university. It was about Leonard Cohen’s recording of “The Lost Canadian (Un canadien… Read more »

Divine Horsemen - Live 1985-1987 ()

CD Edition of 500. Divine Horsemen were a band formed & led by Chris D between the years 1983 and 1988, while he was on hiatus from the Flesh Eaters. Divine Horsemen (taking their name from one of the Flesh Eaters’ most powerful stompers) emerged as a byproduct of Chris’ gorgeous solo album, Time Stands Still. He met singer Julie Christensen a few months before the recording, and the mix of their voices was such a perfect pairing of honey and gravel, they knew they had to keep working together.  Taking a more measured rock tone (as compared to the raging word-zonk of the Flesh Eaters), Divine Horsemen recorded three great LPs and one EP for SST. They were also… 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… Read more »

Plants of the Bible - Plants of the Bible ( / / )

LP Edition of 250. Includes download code. Mastered by Jeremy Pisani. CASSETTE Edition of 200 includes download slip. CD Edition of 500. Here is the first physically graspable music available by this mysterious Western Massachusetts duo, whose sound has been called “Synthetic ASMR love balladry,” by more than one canny listener. Asking them to describe themselves, we received this missive: “Plants of the Bible started in a bedroom in Florence with a tape machine and a poem about an unkillable dog android before it quickly spiraled out of control into a real band with a real record. Their first album is a dreamy cast of imagined characters and everyday events built with elaborately layered sounds. Driven by their array of… Read more »

Jesus Vio - Dutch Science ()

CD Edition of 300. Too Much Love Mag Chocoli MV Out this spring on the legendary Western Massachusetts label Feeding Tube, ‘Dutch Science’ dwells on such topics as gripping onto your sanity as you enter true independence and early adulthood, and what it means to make the sacrifices in order to become a working artist in today’s world. Jesus Vio is a working artist who immigrated to the United States after spending much of his childhood bouncing around the world from his native Chile to Berlin, Jesus Vio spent his a chunk of his youth being immersed in vastly different environments.

id m theft able - 2 Autoharps, A Snowmobile, Some Snowplows, A Premature Snowblower ()

CD Edition of 300. On the morning of January 20th 2019 I was woken up especially early at 8am (that’s early for me anyway) by the sound of freezing rain bouncing off my bedroom window.  Rather than trying to go back to sleep I impulsively got up, put on some clothes, brought my two autoharps, a digital recorder, a plastic tote (to protect the recorder from the elements) and an old card table outside, I set the autoharps up on the table so the freezing rain would hit the strings, placed the recorder in the tote next to the autoharps, pressed record, and this is what happened.
