1997EV - STROBOS VANN
(Reue um Reue, # R.U.R. 038, Cass C70, lim. ed. of 97 copies, hand-numbered)

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: each of 1997EV's works has a personality of its own, and "Strobos Vann" happens to be the harshest and bleakest creature the Sardinian project has ever unleashed upon us. More still: it actually drills its way into the mind like some dark brooding alien menace from a dimension unknown. On "Strobos Vann", minimal throbbing rhythms and hypnotizing abstract post-techno collide with bleak cosmic ambiences and an almost mosh-friendly industrial groove. Guitars have been put aside or drowned in so many effects that you will hardly recognize them. It's skeletal and spare, but so brutal and acidic that you can almost feel the jackhammer slowly entering the skull and the corrosion melting away the brain.

1997EV - SUBSIRKUS SINUS LILLE VEGA
(Reue um Reue, # R.U.R. 034, Cass C60, lim. ed. of 97 copies, hand-numbered)

Composed back in 2007, „SUBSIRKUS SINUS LILLE VEGA“ was originally conceived as a direct follow-up to 1997EV’s first long player “Dead.Ends.Sinful” (Punch Records, 2006). But somehow the release never took place, and the album remained hidden to the world – to this day. Each of 1997EV’s work has a personality and a colour of its own, and if “Subsirkus…” is as psychedelic as any of the Sardinian project’s records ever were, it also has a far more lysergic-acid-folk feel, with loads of acoustic guitars, wah-wah effects, delay worship, some Nicoesque harmonium and of course the typical spaced-out lyrics. What better way to wait for the band’s brand new album (out later this year on RuR) than to take an acid trip down memory lane? mp3 mp3 mp3 mp3 mp3 mp3

1997EV - ZETA RETICULI
(Reue um Reue # R.U.R. 017, LP - marbled dark red / glittering ornage / gold-marbled transparent vinyl - 9 tracks - lim. edition of 315 copies)

Four years and several intense live appearances after their much acclaimed debut CD on Punch Records, 1997EV are back, this time on vinyl, with a new masterpiece of pure minimal post-psychedelia. “Zeta Reticuli” is a long, dark, trance inducing ritual journey verging on astral bad trip. Spooky, spacey, percussion-driven and guitar-loaded ballads unfold with a Voivod-like weirdness in the back of your mind, served by AndreaEV’s deep, hypnotizing vocals and an occasional drift of intoxicating Theremin sounds. Reminiscent of Goblin and S/T, with a hint of Earth and an overall feel of early Ordo Equilibrio on LSD, those hallucinogenic cosmic flowers will leave their imprint burnt on the retina of your inner eye long after the record has stopped spinning. mp3 mp3 mp3 mp3 mp3

Locked up in his cellar with his faithful Amiga 500, our lonesome bard has spent two years brewing up the most improbable brand of weird but cheerful minimal elektro with a definite all-over BM feeling...

ADAM BERCES - JÖNÖKIP / DEATH:AUTOMATIC
(FKK Musik # FKK020, 7inch)

ADAM BERCES is a young hungarian musician born in 1988. He started this project under his own name in 2006, with obscure chiptune recordings of classical pieces (compiled and released last year on cassette by Hard Body Sound). After a short pause he started again in 2011, this time to make his own minimal synth songs in a style he calls "cold minimal electronics", using a Yamaha FM, a Commodore Plus 4 and a self built DIY synth as well as every source of analogue noise. This is his first vinyl record. mp3

(Treue um Treue # T.U.T. 027, LP colour vinyl - in inner disco sleeve + foc - 7 tracks - lim. ed. 250, hand-numbered)

ADN’ CKRYSTALL aka Erick Moncollin surely does not need much of an introduction. Every self-respecting minimal wave fan and synth nerd will have heard of the French synth-wizard who jammed with Tim Blake and Vangelis on a MS-20 prototype in the late 70s and whose 1982 cult album “Jazz’Mad” is considered a landmark in the history of underground electronic music. After a pause in the 90s (during which Moncollin became active in the trance and ambient-techno scene under the name Dr. Strange), several brilliant albums were released in the 2000s on Anna Logue Records, La Forme Lente and Erick’s own ADN and Ysil’Prod labels. Treue um Treue is honoured to present the project’s sixth full-length. “Musique Atomique Sans Surveillance” is a highly skilful, playful yet authentic blend of 70s prog synth, early 80s minimal electro and 90s techno, flowing with ease from library lounge music to spacey weird-wave to electronic exotica, reminiscent at times of BERNARD SZAJNER and CLAUDE LARSON. The spiciest note of this delicious psychotropic cocktail is of course Erick’s unmistakable, demented yet committed Deutsch-Frenglish lyrics, which make of ADN’ CKRYSTALL such a unique experience. mp3 mp3 mp3 mp3 mp3

AIDAN BAKER - BACH EINGESCHALTET, VIERTER BAND

The fourth instalment of “Bach Eingeschaltet” by Canadian guitar-drone hero AIDAN BAKER is a double-edged sword: his interpretations of the maestro are both the closest to the originals, almost academic in execution, and in the end the most deconstructive. The live arrangement for electric guitar of the famous cello suite Prelude slowly but surely drowns in a mist of effects abuse, while the epic and lush metal-drone version of a menuet is carried away by NADJAesque lumbering guitar chords in streams of boundless distortion. mp3 mp3

AKAUZAZTE - ETZAZUAKA
(Magia Roja # MR010, DLP, black vinyl n 3-panel gatefold, ltd)

Akauzazte are the last secret band in Europe. From their H.Q. at the Azkoitia abandonned slaughterhouse (Matadeixen), over the last twenty years they've always taken their time to perfect their records. Their discography is vast, and each record they've taken risks which few "sacred cows" would take. With such precedents, expectations for their first 2XLP were high, but have nonetheless been surpassed with their turn towards noise, atmospheres and rawness, replacing the primary solemnity and equilibrium between cogency and emptiness. Between the industrial tribalism of Missing Foundation and the crushing force of early Swans (not in vain is their rhythmic section comprised of two drums and two basses) and their own deconstructed version of black metal or power electronics. While most bands in the industrial/noise music scene are markedly urban, Akauzazte sound rural, ritualistic and mystical. An oasis of ritual psychedelia and basque industrial "folk" with ancient horn instruments and deteriorated and destroyed guitars that sound as though their amplifiers are about to explode.

(Treue um Treue # T.U.R. 012, LP - crystal clear vinyl - with cartoon-insert - 9 tracks - lim. ed. of 318, hand-numbered)

ALONE from Belgrade have been active both as a performing and recording project since 1994. Their style is a unique brand of high-tech electro-wave, allying the pathos and weirdness of KIRCHOHMFELD, the complexity and killing beat-programming of LASSIGUE BENDTHAUS and the unpredictability of PIERRE NORMAL. This is their first ever vinyl release, a selection of tracks spanning a period of almost 12 years. Definitely pop but never easy, futurist and neo-romantic at times, ALONE’s music remains through the years as unfamiliar and utterly compelling as the post-apocalyptic landscapes it tells us about. Like a voice from the outer world, ALONE takes us to the nexus in time and space where each may find their Golden Path. mp3 mp3 mp3 mp3 mp3

AMOCOMA - GO TO HELL
(tUMULt, CD - with 4-page booklet - 9 tracks)

Muffled and dull guitar-buzzscapes, frantic minimal underwater drumming, muddy swamp howling and the whole drenched in loads of trance inducing effects… welcome to the world of San Francisco’s AMOCOMA. “Go To Hell”, their first official full length, eludes all categorisation. Velvet Cacoon comes to mind, but Amocoma’s compositions are definitely more structured and song-orientated (in a BM sort of way). A foggy acoustic guitar, a forlorn piano or ghostly reeds in the distance add a contemplative touch here and there, in-between explosions of ambient mayhem. A hypnotic journey across the Styx, which could very well take you to the bottom of the hellish river… if it wasn’t for the last song on this amazing album, a breath taking totally freaked out psychedelic pop-BM anthem.

As if emerging through some hermetic transformation from the harshness and anger of the previous albums, “Rosegger” is ablaze with a radiant, almost ecstatic mixture of joy and grief, drenched in light even in its darkest moments. Melodic guitarscapes and distant shoegaze vocals between lament and incantations pour over the listener, filling every pore, vein and cell with a warm, brittle, spellbinding emotion, taking him adrift on luminous waters which progressively darken on side B, finally drowning the incandescence into deep pools of doom drones like a glorious, achingly beautiful sunset. mp3 mp3 mp3 mp3

BRUME - TWO CHARACTERS
(Substantia Innominata # SUB19, 10" LP - coloured vinyl of mixed blue, white & black - 2 tracks - 1st edition lim. of 500 copies)

Through more than 25 years of existence, the French composer CHRISTIAN RENOU, aka BRUME, has developed a unique 'handwriting' style within the experimental underground, something one may call "atmospheric Musique concrète". It is the marriage of many concrete sounds, hand-played acoustic instruments and electronic drones / noises that are arranged in a manner somewhat akin to a "narrative" - highly emotive and often evolving in a dramatic way. We are delighted to have received two tracks for the Substantia Innominata series that are simply extraordinary: expressing the wordless, indescribable oscillations arising from mental states, the qualia and conditions of two fictional 'souls', the aura of a personality. Compounded by electronics (synths), field recordings (door jarring, water), alto sax, gramophone, tapes, various processed voices, percussion, bass, home-made instruments, both 'characters' start as a rather smooth ambient pieces that develop & expand into orchestral, mysterious post-industrial entities, showing a compelling process of densification.

BRUTA NON CALCULANT - LA QUE SABE
(Treue um Treue # TuT029, LP - black vinyl - 9 tracks - lim. ed. of 300 hand-numbered)

After the wonderful „World In A Tear“ LP released earlier this year on Cititrax/Minimal Wave, Treue um Treue are happy and proud to present the second album by BRUTA NON CALCULANT, thus resuming their collaboration with the French duo of Alaxis Andreas G. (once known as Le Syndicat Electronique and mastermind of Invasion Planete) and his blood brother V-Y (Age, Swesor Bhrater, De Frontanel).
From IOSOPHIS to SHINY BLACK MATER, many eclectic projects have charmed and surprised us since Alaxis Andreas G. made his discreet reappearance on the musical scene. But none has had the fullness, maturity and deeply unique musical voice of BRUTA NON CALCULANT, which appears as a sublimation of all that has come before, like the completion of an alchemical Great Work. Leaving behind the folk elements present in World In A Tear, this new album blends with instinctive ease hypnotic third wave rhythm box beats, big muff fuzz and esoteric lyrics into a masterpiece which is both lyrical and intensely ritual, drenched in this aura of mystery characteristic of the brothers’ recent works. Thematically inspired by the myth of the wolf-woman, La Que Sabe (“the one who knows”) is an album about initiatory death, the passage through the wolf’s cave leading up to spiritual rebirth and Liberation. It proves Alaxis Andreas G. to be one of the few contemporary artists capable of constant renewal, each new step on the musical path as thrilling as ever. Comes with a superb artwork by Sophie Lécuyer.

After a first volume released on Joy De Vivre last year, here comes the second chapter of Clayton Ruby’s experiments in rhythm. Setting off at the outer realms of post-club music, „The Spoils Of Feral Love Vol. II“ unveils a blackened labyrinth of multi-reverbed drony leftfield techno, skirting around a kind of gloomy dead zone of post-industrial 4/4 beats. At times chilly and trance inducing, at times almost sacral and liturgical, the underlying pulses of those „spoils“ offer you a ride from microcosm to macrocosm… and finally back to metacosm. A must have for fans of RAIME, PSYCHICK WARRIORS OF GAIA, VATICAN SHADOW, DEMDIKE STARE, RAPOON. mp3 mp3 mp3 mp3 mp3

COAGUL - LA FORJA CENTRIPETA
(Burka For Everybody # BFE30, LP - black vinyl - 5 tracks - lim. edition of 250 copies)

“La Forja Centrípeta” is a sonic support by which the listener can “forge” his or her spirit, going from the outside into the inside. It consists of five sonic spells, conceived and composed by Marc O’Callaghan in Easter 2014 between Barcelona and Picanya.
The first four ones, which are contained in the fisrt side of the record, equeal to the four ages of mankind. But more than four ages in the historical sense of the development of human kind, in this case they are concieved more like four different states of being.
Four possible stadiums in which the listener can enter by meditating on each spell. It begins with the most materialistic age, the iron age (which is the age in which we live today at this moment of history, aswell as the default state of being in which a common human lives these days); and ends at the very core with the most spiritual age, the golden age. The length of each spell is in proportion with the mathemathics of the traditional division from the Vedic doctrine of the four yugas. The last spell, which occupies the whole second side of the record, is an incarnation of the new city, which is another name for the heavenly city of the New Jerusalem that shall descend unto earth at the end of the Apocalypse. Thus when the four ages are finally consumated, we are ready to enter the holy city, where all things are each one in its very right place and distributed in absolute cosmic harmony.
The twelve stanzas of this long spell equal to all that is twelve: the zodiac, the precious stones, the fruits of the tree of life, the angelic typologies, the months of a year, the prophets, et cetera. The first side of this vinyl symbollically equals to the circular shape, and the second one equals to the square shape. So all in all, “La Forja Centrípeta” is a big sonic tool that can be magickally used to achieve what the hermetists rightly called “the squaring of the circle”

COAGUL - LA RODA DE LA JUSTICIA
(Magia Roja, MR007, LP, red vinyl, 8 tracks)

Coàgul is Marc O’Callaghan – synths, voices and bells - playing Suicide’s shamanic trance via Esplendor Geometrico’s industrial sound or Einstürzende Neubauten playing electronic psychedelic noise with PIL circa “Flowers of Romance”, only with more drony, epic, anthemic and minimalistic processions, sometimes played at a roman slave ship pace. At the same time his music feels medieval -even rural- with lyrics formed by esoteric dark poetry in Catalan, chanting and proclaiming things like “Be the light that burns the world” or “Riding with Death, there’s blood in the mud, will is annulled, useless organs, the army of victims holds up the pyramid!” or “ I want you to eat my intestines so I can be virgin for you once more, I want you to eat my balls to be the scorpion that sticks it deep into you”. With an aesthetic halfway between black metal and David Tibet, his themes are plagued with ancient Mediterranean symbolism, references to tarot, surrealism and old secrets, and through all this he still manages to sound punk. And still all comparisons miss the point.

COAGUL - RADIO FORTUNA
(Bindu Sound, tape, 10 tracks)

Radio Fortuna is a device that has been calculated and recorded by Marc O'Callaghan in Barcelona during February 2017. 2 + 0 + 1 + 7 = 10 This work is based in the number 10. The cycle of 30 minutes of the total sum of both sides of this tape has been divided into 10 stations of 3 minutes each. Each station is then constituted by 36 grades of the cycle, that can be arranged in 6 rows of 6 grades, a square that reveals the structure for each station. Each station is related to 1 of the 10 first natural numbers. If you switch the side of the tape at the end of a given station, you will be teleported at the begining of the opposite station of the other side.

COAGUL & CADENA - s/t
(Dead Moon Records, Discos Enfermos, Gradual Hate, Broca Records, mini-LP - black vinyl - 7 tracks - lim. edition of 285 copies)

In Summer 2015, these two industrial music acts from Barcelona decided to join forces to produce a series of songs specifically conceived to be played for the first and last time during the third edition of the Cønjuntø Vacíø festival. Formed in 2015, CADENA is a three-piece combo refreshing the hardcore punk and industrial rock traditions, and distilling them into a saturated and contemporary sound that is close to the most plastic-like noise rock. COÀGUL is the single-member project of an unclassifiable character who, from 2009 onwards has been taking back the rythm'n'noise sound of Esplendor Geometrico-like acts, translating it into a certain lyrical drive that brings him closer to the lands of folk music rather than those of the noise music into which it's so easy to pigeonhole him. For this occasion, the two acts shaked their hands in their common soils: the obsession for urban space, contemporary dystopia and an active nihilism that connects the suburbs with the cosmos. From the work done were born seven songs that were firstly played live at the festival —becoming a corrosive experience which, by the means of noise, light and relational performance art, exhausted the senses of the audience and deprogrammed it's behaviour— to be later recorded in the studio. With lyrics in Catalan, more than an album this is a document that cartographies a contextual micro-particle key to understand the hidden details of Barcelona's underground.

(Substantia Innominata # SUB04, 10" LP - white marbled vinyl - 2 tracks - 1st edition lim. to 500 copies)

Fourth volume in the series, this time by well-known Russian project Cisfinitum. The hypnotic, cyclic drones of "Devotio", made of delayed bell-sounds and distant ethereal voices, lead the way on a transcendental journey between levels of consciousness, like a sound whirlpool coiling its way up the World Tree. On the B-side, the drones become more oppressing as the vision intensifies and the awesome Truth draws nearer... As always a 100% convincing illustration of the series' concept! mp3 mp3

COÀGUL - TOT ENCAIXA!
(Nekofutschata # Neko19, LP - olive green marbled vinyl - 6 tracks - lim. to 311 copies)

Ritual severity, that certain trademark pop sensitivity and a rampant punk attitude all collide in COÀGUL's latest offering "TOT ENCAIXA!", which leaves the esoteric, conceptual paths of its highly acclaimed predecessor and therefore focuses on political topics and social issues backlit through the prismatic eyes of Barcelona based Marc O' Callaghan. A six track tour de force of harsh synths, invoking chants and sounds charged with meaning, drawing inspiration from neurolinguistic programming, pharmaceuticals, the classic Catalan poet Jacint Verdaguer and the synchronicity of the universe &.among others. Housed in a sleeve showing murals illustrating local tales of the Spanish Moià area, this is the first release through NOVY SVET's label NEKOFUTSCHATA in years. When Frl. Tost and J. Weber were getting the chance to release an album by one of their all-time-favourite artists, they just could not permit themselves to let that chance go. Comes with inlay and fully loaded with energy. more

COMANDO SUZIE - CHICA PLAYMOBIL

La Nébuleuse Pourpre brings us two fantastic tracks by the Barcelonian duo, taken from the "Pobres Chavales" recording sessions, but unreleased to this day. "Chica Playmobil" is a tongue-in-cheek, minimal electro hit, maybe the Comando's best track ever... The flip side is a cover version of La Mode's "Wild Puppets", which transforms the original new wave track into an up-tempo electro pop anthem. Two dance floor killers, highly recommended!

CONTACT - FIRST CONTACT
(Temporary Residence #TRR245, LP - black vinyl - 4 tracks)

CONTACT is the new duo of A.E. Paterra (aka MAJEURE) of famed sci-fi synth-rock group ZOMBI, and acclaimed British film composer, PAUL LAWLER. Exploring a similar orbit as MAJEURE and ZOMBI, multi-instrumentalist LAWLER infuses heavy doses of melody and drama to give First Contact a sound and feel that blends late 70s PINK FLOYD sprawl, the nostalgic wonder of early 80s science documentaries, and JOHN CARPENTER’s 80s sci-fi action films. Equal parts fascinating and euphoric, Contact is two masters of their respective crafts finding common ground in zero gravity. mp3 mp3

CTEPHIN - DUAD
(Drone Records # DR-97, 7" - golden vinyl - black stamped covers + inlay 2 tracks - 1st lim. edition of 300 copies)

"For I am divided for love's sake, for the chance of union". CTEPHIN is a curious "drone-family" built around the main couple StF & Aedria Hughes who create atmospheric & noisy soundscapes, with various friends and their 7 children. Calling themselves "Umbrella Noize Collective", they live to the: "Law of Liberty as laid out in Liber AL vel Legis". DUAD is their first vinyl release and uses pumping drones, field recordings (rain), guitars, metallic effects and a kind of very harmonic cembalo instrument. The two tracks develop in a lovely way; from pure ambience to noise and back. The same use of beautiful harmonics & noise-drones creates quite a special atmosphere, from NOISE LIGHT to LIGHT NOISE.

CROOKED MOUTH & NIGHT PROFOUND - s/t
(Brave Mysteries, # CQBL060)

I
n the first ever Brave Mysteries collaboration release, we find two very exciting young Canadian Neofolk acts, Crooked Mouth and Night Profound, joining together to create a very touching album of pastoral ballads. Intricate acoustic tapestries and hushed voices rise and fall in a unique offering that is both reminiscent of their individual styles as well as entirely new and exclusive to this effort. For those unfamiliar, Crooked Mouth is the stirring folk music of Ian Campbell, whose music is equally steeped in traditional Gaelic folk forms and nuanced personal reflections on the brooding expanses of his native land way up in rugged British Columbia. On this remarkable working, the introverted and shadowy nature of Crooked Mouth is expanded and illuminated by the miasma of chthonic folk collective Night Profound. Also hailing from British Columbia, Night Profound weave a kaleidoscopic instrumental prowess and progressive songwriting through the proceedings. This is a truly unique album, offering glimpses at two nascent acts, working in intimate collaboration with one another while drawing inspiration from a region of the world thus far unrepresented in Neofolk circles
