Mordecai - Library Music ()

LP Edition of 200. Includes download code. OUT OF PRINT Release Date – September 25th, 2020 Bandcamp Remaining copies at Forced Exposure  Feeding Tube was chuffed to take Professor Steve Hesske’s advice and make way for the fifth vinyl LP by Mordecai. I mean, when the Professor speaks even the cows take notice. And we are all descended from cows, right? So why not? Originally based around Butte Montana, formed by two brothers who claim to have been born (or conceived) (or some damn thing) on crappy Dead tours (’89 and ’92, meaning the ones that resulted in Without a Net and “Althea” from 30 Trips Around the Sun), Mordecai took an unlikely backstory and spun it into solid gold… Read more »

2xLP Edition of 300. Co-Released with Cardinal Fuzz Release Date – October 23rd – Preorder available soon… Just what you need in these end times – Cardinal Fuzz (Europe) and Feeding Tube Records (N.America) – A vinyl issue of the killer CD comp that SS Records released way back in 2004 with a couple of added treats. Brace yourself for some steller  hair singeing full throttle wipe outs across 4 slabs of heavy black vinyl. Comes with a folded A3 double sided insert. Monoshock was one of THE best bands of the 90s and if they were from Seattle and not Illa Vista & Oakland, California you would already know that. During their six years they released a handful of… Read more »

The Band Whose Name Is A Symbol - Berserkir Volume II ()

LP Edition of 300. Co-Released with Cardinal Fuzz. Artwork – Brett Savage Release Date – October 30th – Pre-order available soon… Dateline unknown…emanations from a planet in meltdown. The universal cosmic event tracker estimates between 22 to 52 points of possible physical contact with The Band Whose Name Is A Symbol but it has lost count. This Canadian improve unit have over the last few years started to get the gushing love and attention they have always deserved. Like all the best artists, they do not fit snugly into any genre – as from one moment to the next their ability to create cosmically juiced up and fucked up music which in many cases when played and recorded was the… Read more »

Alison Cotton - Only Darkness Now ()

LP Edition of 300. Co-Released with Cardinal Fuzz. Artwork – Luke Drodz Release Date – October 30th – Pre-order coming soon.  Here is the second solo LP by the wonderful London-based singer/multi-instrumentalist Alison Cotton. Originally issued on cassette by the mighty Bloxham Tapes, just about everyone who heard Only Darkness Now suggested it might make for an excellent LP. And hey — they were right. Alison’s debut LP ‘All Is Quiet at the Ancient Theatre’ received wide ranging critical acclaim from placing in the Guardians Writers Album Of The Year to placing in the Quietus Albums of the Year. Ms. Cotton has a storied past performing with Saloon and The Eighteenth Day of May, and she still may be found doing… Read more »

Big Blood - Dark Country Magic ()

LP Edition of 500. Co-Released with Cardinal Fuzz Cardinal Fuzz and Feeding Tube Records are delighted to be able to  bring to you the much anticipated vinyl pressing of ‘Dark Country Magic’ from this wonderful Maine trio (Quinnisa making her first intentional effort with Moo Hoo on this release. Caleb Mukerin and Colleen Kinsella have been key personages of the Portland sonic underground as members of the cosmically-shifting Cerberus Shoals and the folkily psychedelic Fire on Fire before forming the more personal and hermetic Big Blood back in 2006. The band’s multi-phasic discography has thus far reminded people of everything from the Comus to Portishead to Julee Cruise at different moments, yet none of these thumbnails comes close to capturing… Read more »

The Left Outsides - A Place To Hide ()

LP Edition of 497. Co-Released with Cardinal Fuzz. Much needed vinylization of an amazing live set, previously issued as a CDR in an edition of 100 by the fine Borley Rectory label. Finally, for the good of all mankind, the music from this great night, opening for Robyn Hitchcock at London’s Betsey Trotwood in October 2018, is turntable ready. A Place to Hide begins with the album’s one new original tune “My Reflection Once Was Me.” The song brims with harmonium-iced vocals that cannot fail to bring a certain German-born chanteuse to mind. Built over a lovely droning base, and slow, martial pulsing, the song answers a rarely asked question — what might it have sounded like if Tim Buckley… Read more »

Joseph Allred - Michael ()

LP Edition of 300. Download Included. Michael is the third LP we have done with Boston-based musician, Joseph Allred. The first, O Meadowlark (FTR 451) was a suite for guitar and banjo. For its follow-up, Traveler (FTR 491), Joseph added splendid vocals to the mix. With Michael, Mr. Allred  gives airing to his fine harmonium playing, alongside string majesty and vocals. Maybe on the next one he’ll teach us how to fly. Michael is an album with a dreamy narrative core. Its loose tale deals with the idea of the Archangel Michael appearing during a spirit ritual, performed by the character Faulkner (something like Allred’s alter-ego) in hopes of remembering the contours of heaven. But this concept only emerged after… Read more »

Prana Crafter - MysticMorpho ()

LP Edition of 500. Co-Released With Cardinal Fuzz   Prana Crafter is William Sol, a musical mystic who blends the raw energies of nature with guitars, synthesizers, singing bowls, and a dose of flow-consciousness. The resulting sonic nectar flows out from the amplifier, cascading in the mind of the listener, splashing mantras against the listener’s third ear. Some music is meant to entertain, to be consumed like flashing patterns on a TV screen. Not so with the music of Prana Crafter. This music is a sonic-tapestry of energies that are meant to envelop the listener and deliver a message that, as Sol puts it, cannot be known through symbol or through sign. Likened to artists across the psychedelic and folk… Read more »

Matt Sowell - Organize Or Die ()

LP Edition of 250. Download Included. Minneapolis guitarist, Matt Sowell, is another of the many great players we were first introduced to at the Thousand Incarnations of the Rose festival in Takoma Park, MD. Matt played a richly dark and brooding set at Rhizome, with a style deeply indebted to the American Primitive tradition. His set had the raw strength of Fred Gerlach, the precision of Peter Lang, showed a country/blues influence that seemed to reference Fahey, and possessed the raga-meets-ragtime eclecticism of Jack Rose. We were blown away. Later, talking to Matt while we watched Mark Fosson play in the bandshell, we talked about what he’s up to. He’s a family guy, a committed union member, and an all-around… Read more »

Jon Collin - Water & Rock Music Volumes 3-4 ()

LP Edition of 250. Download slip included. A single LP compiles another two installments in the Water & Rock Music series by Jon Collin, UK ex-pat guitarist currently based in Sweden. Once again, Collin has put together a riveting set of acoustic guitar pieces, these recorded around Stockholm between April and October, 2108. There is a wistful, bluesy quality to the playing and inventions here. John Fahey once told me that blues was “about anger.” But this work seems suffused with delicately scrambling melancholia, like a tangle of vines trying to reach for a breath of sunlight. Sometimes this attempt is rewarded, other times it just turns back on itself for further rumination. Which I guess is really just another… Read more »
