Byron Coley - Father Yod’s Kitchen ()

196 Pages. Design by Naomi Yang. In the spirit of community cookbooks through the ages, this collection of recipes involves simple techniques and common ingredients. In this instance, the community represented is the musical sub-underground of Western Massachusetts. Mr. Coley is a home cook, whose professional restaurant experience mostly involves dishwashing. But over the last quarter century he has fed family, friends and large events at his house, the Yod Space in Florence MA, and various other places. Accompanied by his own commentary, as well as that of those who have et his vittles, this book should be as useful as reading material in the bathroom, as it is for instruction in the kitchen. $19.95 + shipping

LP / Linear Notes by Byron Coley  Edition of 500 Co-Released with Negative Glam Here is the first volume of protean solo improvisations recorded by Loren Connors in his artist’s garret in New Haven, Connecticut.

Alison Cotton - Only Darkness Now ()

LP Edition of 300. Co-Released with Cardinal Fuzz. Artwork – Luke Drodz 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 likewise with The Left Outsides. And don’t get me… Read more »

Jordan Perry - Changing Always Who Is Waving To Us ()

CS Edition of 150. FTR is excited and honored to be working with the Virginia-based guitarist, Jordan Perry, again on his new cassette. Our previous work with Jordan began with a reissue of his eponymous 2017 debut LP originally released by Good Cry Records (FTR 376), and was followed by vinylization of his self-released 2018 cassette, Witness Tree (FTR465). Both of these albums are fantastic blends of folk technique and avant strategies, and the same can be said of this new cassette, Changing Always Who Is Waving to Us. Comprised of four pieces longer than the work on those earlier albums, the material was recorded earlier this year, originally just as a way to document some improvisations. Jordan returned to… Read more »

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

LP Edition of 300. Co-Released with Cardinal Fuzz. Artwork – Brett Savage Purple Galaxy Vinyl  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 first time and last time said… Read more »

Chris Corsano - QuaranTunes Series no. 003 ( / )

12″ Lathe Edition of 35. Risograph printed loose leaf cover and back art printed at Looky Here in Greenfield, MA. OUT OF PRINT On the evening of May 1, 2020, Chris Corsano appeared as the third participant in Feeding Tube’s QuaranTunes Zoom concert series. In the middle of what seemed to be The Red Room from David Lynch’s Twin Peaks, Mr. Corsano used every appendage at his disposal to obliterate reality. And it was real real nice.  The track titles give you some idea of what his tools were that night — “Brush & Chimes,” “Light Metal” and “Horns.” A fourth track, “Drums,” was recorded on July 4, 2020, because we were so gobsmacked by the performance Chris did in… Read more »

Myriam Gendron - QuaranTunes Series no.004 ( / )

12″ Lathe Edition of 31. Risograph printed loose leaf cover and back art printed at Looky Here in Greenfield, MA. OUT OF PRINT The most excellent Quebecois singer/guitarist, Myriam Gendron, produces music that feels simultaneously home-spun and sophisticated. Her sole LP to date, Not So Deep as a Well (FTR 146) is a gorgeous album whereon she sets the poems of the American intellectual, Dorothy Parker, to her own beautifully crafted guitar tunes. That album was hailed throughout the civilized world, and many fans wait impatiently for Myriam’s two young kids to set her free for artistic endeavors once again. In the meantime, she has worked on some new material, and it was our extreme pleasure to invite her to… Read more »

Joseph Allred - QuaranTunes Series no.009 ( / )

12″ Edition of 32. Numbered. Risograph printed loose leaf cover and back art printed at Looky Here in Greenfield, MA. Youtube Archive. Recorded on the evening of Friday June 12, 2020, at his home in Brighton MA, this lathe documents a spellbinding instrumental set by master musician, Joseph Allred.  The first piece is side-long exploration of the guitar based on a Robbie Basho piece called “Tassajara” (from The Falconer’s Arm I). But Allred’s approach feels less tense, and a bit looser, which always seems like a good thing to. The second piece is a vocal accompanied  by harmonium. A bit like some of the material on his most recent Feeding Tube LP, Michael (FTR 532), there is a deeply spiritual… Read more »
