Matthew J. Rolin - The Dreaming Bridge ( / )

2LP edition of 300 Release Date – April 30th – Pre-order Available – “We are living in something of a golden age of fingerstyle guitarists. This glut can be both a blessing and a curse, as it becomes increasingly difficult for even the most discerning of fans to distinguish one player from the next, however capable these players might be. It is always a pleasure, then, to hear the ways in which the braver and brighter guitarists re-think the tradition from the ground up and recast it in their own image. Enter guitarist Matthew J. Rolin, who plays as if he was born with a dreadnought in his hands. The Ohio-based guitarist’s artistic leaps in recent years are rivaled only… Read more »

Jantar - Sempronia ()

LP Edition of 300 Co-Released with Drowned Lands Fantastic new LP by this Brooklyn quintet, most of whom are deeply involved in the legendary Sunview Luncheonette scene. The roots of Jantar lie in a nameless experimental duo formed by Chad Laird and Tianna Kennedy in 2005 or so, but this duo has evolved into a working band with two distinct creative strategies.  One of their aims in make ”experimental easy listening music,” which involves working angles that are similar to film music, although perhaps with a bit of Stereolab poured on top. Their other mode is more overtly rockoid, and that was the intent when  they recorded Sempronia in the summer of 2017. While the sounds here do have moments… Read more »

Rob Noyes & Joseph Allred - Avoidance Language ()

LP Edition of 200. Release Date – April 9th, 2021 – Pre-Order Available –  There have been some very cool guitar duo LPs over the years — Bert Jansch & John Renbourn’s Bert & John, Danny Kalb & Stefan Grossman’s Crosscurrents, Jody Harris & Robert Quine’s Escape, Charalambides’ Joy Shapes, Bill Orcutt & Michael Morley’s Electric Guitar Duets, any comp of Kansas Joe McCoy & Memphis Minnie, etc. — but there has never been one quite like Avoidance Language. It is a wild-eyed classic from start to finish . Ostensibly a meeting between two guitarists lurking around the Boston area (although Rob has since moved to Japan), Joseph’s mastery of other instruments (harmonium and banjo) affords the pair a wider… Read more »

Curtis Godino's - Alien Nation ()

LP Edition of 250. Release Date – April 2nd, 2021 – Pre-order available –  We were introduced to the work of Brooklyn polymath Curtis Godino by Gary Panter. We asked Gary to recommend someone with light show expertise, and he said Curtis was the guy. That was true. We also learned that Curtis was an ace musician, which has resulted in two prior FTR releases. The first was The Cave LP (FTR417) by Worthless. The second was the Corners and Their Places cassette by Nothing To Semble (FTRCS359). Both of these releases were form-busting masterworks of outsider/prog crossover with hallucinogenic overtones. And even mightier is this new LP, Alien Nation, which sounds to us like a lost ’67 Mothers album,… Read more »

Sex Tide - Ohio ()

LP Edition of 250. Comes with download code. Release Date – March 19th, 2021 – Pre-Order Available –  What’s round on the ends and high in the middle? Why, the new LP by those proud Buckeyes, Sex Tide, of course. Ohio is the first album they’ve recorded with a full quartet line-up. Bassist Phillip Park and saxophonist Ryan Mcauley join the core duo (drummer/vocalist Aurelie Celine and guitarist Chris Corbin) to create a new fat-ass sound that continually conjures up visions of the 1970 Stooges. As with the previous Sex Tide LPs we’ve done — Possession Sessions (FTR 325) and Flash Fuck / Vernacular Splatter (FTR 436) — a lot of the vibes here are generated by Aurelie’s relentless pounding… Read more »

Michael Hurley - Blue Navigator ()

LP edition of 1000. OUT OF PRINT. Copies still available at Forced Exposure  Second Pressing in the works… Pleased as punch are we to be reissuing Michael Hurley’s long-lost 1984 album, Blue Navigator. Admittedly, Secret Seven and Mississippi collaborated on a dandy 8-track version a decade ago, but the record has mostly been available as an obscure import CD — if at all — for many a year. The reason for this is that the Rooster Records hq burned down in 1987, taking master tapes, extra covers and whatever else there was with it. This was a general bummer, but especially so for us Hurley fans, since his final LP with Rounder was Snockgrass in 1980, and he didn’t hook up… Read more »

Dead Sea Apes & Black Tempest - Sun Behind The Sun (Mirri Board Sleeve Edition) ()

LP Edition of 500. Cardinal Fuzz and Feeding Tube Records are proud to present a long awaited reissue of Dead Sea Apes & Black Tempest – The Sun Behind The Sun. This re-issue is presented in a reflective Mirri Board reflective outer sleeve. Manchester’s Dead Sea Apes and Godalming’s Black Tempest engage in a mind meld of galactic proportions on this; both band’s first outing on vinyl. Both entities weave together seamlessly as Grey Alphabets recalls Goblin’s giallo soundtracks, whilst Wilder Penfield pulses with post-punk metal-loid Harmonia kraut vibes. Side 2 is given over to the 25+minute Heliopause – a dubby astral meditation, where Oneida meet Tangerine Dream in an elongated Komische drift. For fans of: Harmonia, Oneida,Goblin, Mogwai, Tangerine… Read more »

Dead Sea Apes - Night Lands ()

LP Edition of 500 Co-Release with Cardinal Fuzz  (90x Random colour eco-vinyl in stock)  OUT OF PRINT REPRESS – Twisted Stripe Vinyl / Gloss Lam Sleeve.  Hot on the heels of last year’s drone masterpiece, The Free Territory (FTR 457), comes this hot bowl of noodles from Manchester’s most elegantly wasted quintet. And while there might be apt comparisons to be made to some of the best current psych purveyors, the central thrill provided  by these sounds makes me think of naught but prime Bay Area ballroom scene acid spew.  The guitar lines unspool like electrical cables filled with acid punch, and remain crackling in the air for moments longer than you imagine they can remain afloat. The keys have… Read more »

Dead Sea Apes Adam Stone Black Tempest - Dataland ()

LP Edition of 500 (250 x Cream Vinyl with Heavy Berry Splatter (picture is a mock up) 250 x Black Vinyl) Release Date – January 29th – Preorder available. BLACK VINYL –  available at FORCED EXPOSURE BERRY SPLATTER VINYL – We are pleased to announce our forthcoming album DATALAND, a collaboration with Black Tempest and Adam Stone achieved mainly through internet data transfer during the Covid lockdown of 2020. Insistent, evolving electronic sounds encounter a variety of guitars and percussion, from the clockwork kosmische of ‘Lost Hours’ to the stumbling nosie dub of ‘Shop Soiled’, while Adam Stone’s words meditate on life in the post-industrial west, our increasingly atomised and data-driven society and its logical conclusion in a corporatised dystopia….
