New Releases From End of the Alphabet Records


KK Null live in 2009

KK Null

By way of End of the Alphabet Records:

First up is a tape from the darkest depths of the South Island of New Zealand – deep and beautiful electronics from MIR out March 1st. Described by the artists as “Xeno-electronic emissions woven from a blackened blend of technoid deconstructions, harsh noise, post-industrial electronics, and dark alien dronescapes…” “In the Dust of this Planet” is a beautiful and disturbing foray in a world of bleak post-techno.

Following this is a series of very limited edition 7″ lathe cuts split between New Zealand and international artists.

In April we’ll have Japanese noise legend, KK NULL (Zeni Geva) vs. Wellington noisenik, Mischancerie.

In June we’re happy to have noise legend Bruce Russell (Dead C) return to the label, this time on a split with malaysian sound artist, Goh Lee Kwang.

And in July, the depths of the southern winter, warm yourself with two of our favourite guitar sound benders: Makoto Kawabata from modern psych masters, Acid Mothers Temple, sharing a lathe cut with homegrown Kiwi genius, Kraus.

Three New Cassette Releases From Gold Lion Arts


From Gold Lion Arts:

Gold Lion Arts is releasing three new cassettes this month, all of which were recorded live.

Vinny Golia-Solo at Gold Lion Arts
LA windmaster Vinny Golia plays a variety of reeds, singing bowls, flutes and more in this wonderful recording. The solo set is a continuous piece, divided over two sides. It’s very high energy and showcases a master at work.

Amy Reed-Solo Guitar
Amy Reed’s continued growth and development as an improviser is apparent on this micro-release. Her electric guitar set, recorded in the summer of 2014 is flowing with beautiful, aggressive sounds with a nice arc going into Side B.

Ross Hammond and Catherine Sikora-Perfect Plasticity
This duo cassette release is the first recording made at Gold Lion Arts. It features Sacramento guitarist Hammond with frequent collaborator Catherine Sikora on Tenor Saxophone. Sikora, who hails from Ireland by way of New York is playing with a fire and the two get into some killer duo improvisations. Hammond is on electric and acoustic guitars and each piece finds the two weaving lines and textures into a cacophony of sound.

Black Sweat Records Releases


From Black Sweat Records:

ARIEL KALMA
OPEN LIKE A FLUTE
BS015
Originally composed between 1981 and 1984 and initially appeared only on tape in two different editions, the proposed material from Kalma for this work confirms his pantheistic vision of the ethnic sound that had already emerged in 1978 with the masterpiece Osmose. The deep consciousness of the compositional techniques of Indian ragas it’s mixed here with embroidered electronic textures on which flute and sax explore the most secret archetypal elements of nature. In this way Kalma offers to the listener a personal idea of sacred music with luminous and oneirics tones but always dialoguing with a highest cosmic conception of things. With a clever use of effects, harmonium, delays and exotic percussions Kalma becomes the creator of soundscapes from the endless myriad shades.Such a fusion of western avant-garde and eastern traditione approaches the frech musicien to other big names of the international panorama as Popol Vuh, Angus Mclise or Laszlo Hortobagy. The master comes from original 1/4’’ analog tape from the 80’s.

FUTURO ANTICO – S/T
BS010-CD
For the first time on CD this obscure gem of the italian project Futuro Antico, released originally on tape in 1980, this record contains the hypnotic session of Walter Maioli (Aktuala) and Riccardo Sinigaglia. Analog and warm sounds, a perfect mix of drone synth and ancient flutes (found in oriental countries) gives you the idea to fly on a spaceship towards some exotic sites. This records terribly remember the astonishing live Köln jam of Terry Riley and Don Cherry, the comparison fits! The reissue maintains the original tape artwork + info and photos in the insert sleeve.

FUTURO ANTICO
DAI PRIMITIVI ALL’ELETTRONICA
BS009-CD
After the great success of the vinyl edition, is now ready the CD version of the 2nd record of Futuro Antico project; an outstanding raga-like drone lp with a distinctive cosmic vibe, Futuro Antico was a short living collaboration between the two italian Walter Maioli (Aktuala), Riccardo Sinigaglia and Gabin Dabiré (from Burkina Faso). The synthesis between ancient, ethnic and analog electronic music is just perfect, the minimalist repetition with slight changes gives associations of a slow growth; cyclic repetition gives the listener an opportunity to discover the sounds, to meditate, to go into the music, join the same journey trough ancient, primitive cultures and modern electronic soundscapes. Originally released in 1980, the sound is completly analog and warm, the reissue maintain the original tape artwork + info and photos.

J.D. EMMANUEL
ECHOESE FROM ANCIENT CAVES
BS013
Probably one of the most underestimate artist of electronic of the early ‘80, has been lately rediscover. Expert modulator of electronic and natural sounds, with this work Emmanuel seems to recall and reflect exstensively on that poetics of the cyclic and mantric sound investigated by other pioneers as Terry Riley and La Monte Young. The micro-tonal pattners of the compositions are animated by dense and minimum pulses that amplify the hypnotic and meditative dimension and can be coloured by tibetan suggestions or guitar glissandi of nocturnal taste. In this way the “Echoes from ancient caves”, originally appeared only on tape in 1981, is ideally connected to the previous experimentations of “Rain Forest Music (1981) and Wizards (1982).
