Two Much - The Abstract Horse ()

LP with Download code. Edition of 200. Art by Allison Tanenhaus An incredible, primitive and ecstatic teenage garage rock explosion from the suburbs of 1968 Orlando, Florida. With an instrumental line-up consisting of just guitar and drums, this is a version of rock & roll as raw and naked as only a duo can manage. Think Half Japanese, the Work Dogs, the Bassholes and so on — Two Much are cut from the same wicked cloth. I remember a cassette of some of this material circulating around sub-underground Boston back in the 1980s. Might have been around the time Robin Amos’s post-Girls band, Shut Up (with Glenn Jones), was finishing up their run. Robin was a well-known player on the… Read more »

Sly & The Family Drone - Walk It Dry ()

LP Edition of 500 Co-Released with Love Love Records Release Date – July 17, 2020 – Pre-order available – (will ship lp once we have it instock.) London’s kings of noise Sly & The Family Drone follow up their 2019 Love Love LP ‘Gentle Persuaders’ with ‘Walk It Dry’, an 8 track LP collaboratively released by Love Love Records in the UK and Feeding Tube Records across the pond in the USA. Recorded at the end of 2018 after a year long post-car crash recovery hiatus, ‘Walk It Dry’ utilises the familiar sound palette of scronked electronics, bulging noise blasts, wailing sax & Kalashnikov drums that was found on ‘Gentle Persuaders’ but is a very a different beast. The tracks here… Read more »

Wednesday Knudsen & Willie Lane - Long Time ‘Til Tomorrow ()

LP Edition of 500 – Drowned Lands Series (DL1) Release Date – July 24th, 2020 – Pre-order Available – First issue in the Drowned Lands series, assembled by Jason Meagher, is the debut duo recording by Wednesday Knudsen and Willie Lane. Long Time ‘Til Tomorrow is a gorgeous instrumental collaboration by guitarist Lane and multi-instrumentalist Knudsen that will knock your Smartwool socks off. Recorded at Meagher’s Black Dirt Studio, the album documents the first time the pair played together. They are, of course, well known to Feeding Tube fans. Willie’s first three Cord Art LPs have been reissued over the last two years (FTR 413, 437, 438) and Wednesday’s two albums with Weeping Bong Band (FTR 313, 448) have slain… Read more »

lloyd Thayer & Jerome Deupree - Duets ()

LP (comes with download code.) Edition of 200. Release Date – July 31st, 2020 – Pre-order Available Mind-blowing set of duo improvisations from a string player once known as the King of the Dobro, and the original drummer for Morphine. Long based in the Boston area, lloyd Thayer is a master musician as well as a teacher, a street performer (retired, I think) and a collector of esoteric stringed instruments (many of which are played with a slide). We were introduced to his work by Glenn Jones, who more or less grabbed us by the collars and hauled us to see him down at the 1000 Incarnations of the Rose festival. Thayer’s set of eastern-tinged material, played on instruments we… Read more »

Joseph Allred - Michael ()

LP Edition of 300. Download Included. Release Date – August 28th, 2020 – Preorder available –  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… Read more »

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

LP Edition of 250. Download slip included. Release Date – August 14th, 2020 – Pre-Order Available –  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… Read more »

The Left Outsides - A Place To Hide ()

LP Edition of 497. Co-Released with Cardinal Fuzz. Release Date – August 28th, 2020 – Pre-order available. 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 —… Read more »

Dredd Foole - QuaranTunes Series no.001 ( / )

12″ Lathe. Edition of 20. Numbered. Loose Leaf Cover + Back Art Printed at Looky Here in Greenfield, MA. Documentation of the first Quarantunes concert, broadcast from Brattleboro VT on April 10, 2020. This features Dredd and his acoustic guitar at his most blues-wailingest. There are a few great new songs, and a bunch of old faves like “Four Roses for Jack,” ‘You Feel,” and ‘Your Heart.” Even playing inside the confines of  his packed record room, there is no mistaking the charged up genius of Dredd. The sound is pure emotion made tangible. The QuaranTunes series is being done in small editions, with Risographed insert covers. The extant copies are split evenly with the artist, in an attempt to… Read more »

Matt Sowell - Organize Or Die ()

LP Edition of 250. Download Included. Release Date – August 21st, 2020 – Preorder available –  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… Read more »
