(Drone Records # MIND-03, LP - four vinyl colours, each 125 x: WHITE & GREEN MIXED // BLACK // MIXED YELLOW RED // CHRYSTAL CLEAR & WHITE MIXED - 4 tracks - 500 copies)

Featuring: JIM HAYNES (USA, psychogeographical drones of rust and decay), MANINKARI (France, handplayed / instrumental trance drones), KSHATRIY (Russia, dark psychedelic (higher?) consciousness drones), EXIT IN GREY (Russia, timeless natural drones). stunning artwork paintings by British artist PETE GREENING, design by TILMANN BENNINGHAUS.

JIM HAYNES from San Francisco is focused on the unpredictable processes of rust & decay in connection with the perception of time. For his contribution "He stopped at a picture..." he is using field recordings from a world war 2 era radar outpost (located near the Golden Gate Bridge), combined with shortwave, motors, wire-tapping microphones, analogue electric sounds... A breathtaking experimental & raw drone-collage, full of tension & almost dramatic suction, sound of " psychic loss & american paranoia". EXIT IN GREY, the main project of Russian Sergey [S] from the Moscow-area (who is also active as FIVE ELEMENTS MUSIC & SISTER LOOLOMIE) is mesmerizing the listeners since years with small & handmade editions of emotional daydream-drones, intuitively woven together with guitar, field recordings & analog synths. The long piece "Drawn by Memory/The Wind 2012" is a perfect example of his skills and creates with minimal instrumental & natural sound-sources an atmosphere of timelessness and nostalgia... KSHATRIY means 'warrior' in Sanskrit and expresses the artists believe in the universal power of sound. Hailing from the fascinating St. Petersburg scene in Russia comes this "fractal dark drone ambient' project, especially focused on cosmic/transpersonal consciousness themes - these "Shifting Waves" sound secretful & mysterious with a phantastic spatial sound-quality (open to both digital & analogue sound sources) for the perfect cosmic mind-movie. MANINKARI are two twin-brothers from Paris and have blown us away with their captivating "handplayed" instrumental drone music, with influences from various styles like Jazz, Art Rock and Classical Music, combining improvisation and composition. Often based on percussion & strings, they look at their sound as a spiritual tool causing a disorder of the mind, a 'visible' transformation of the uncontrollable dreams & their own subsconscious. The two pieces "Enstase 1 & 2" sound at the same time subtle, airy and dense using a suprising instrumentation, and show impressively one of the possible new directions of drone music.

(Obscène & Anémique # O&A03, C40, ltd 77)

This monster tape is a testimony of the mythical mongo tour which united MUSHROOM'S PATIENCE, DIAMANTENER OBERHOF, NIEDOWIERZANIE and TZII on the sinister road between Brussels, Mulhouse, Mainz and Würzburg. Those are not live recordings, but studio tracks made specially for this release. Mushroom's Patience is a cult experimental / surreal band from Roma formed in the early 80's. Diamantener Oberhof is the duo of Johannes Schebler (of Baldruin) and Christian Schoppik (of Brannten Schnüre) Niedowierzanie is a pathetic lament, originally from Marseille. Tzii, hailing from Brussels, has been spreading his cinematic, dark and weird music over the world since 1996. Expect nothing but surreal obsessions, bizarre folk, brainless mongo pop or dark cabaret musick. This tape is limited to 77 copies, with an artwork designed by Christian Schoppik and Johannes Schebler. mp3 mp3 mp3 mp3

(Aufnahme + Wiedergabe / Bleak, # a+w020 / Bleak 50, C40, 11 tracks, with download code + 3 buttons)

In 1993, a group of electronic troubadours set about writing and recording a tribute to their favourite band, Whitehouse. Amongst them, ex-Whitehouse member Glenn Michael Wallis, founder of Industrial pioneers Konstruktivists, former stagehand for Throbbing Gristle. The recordings were given away with the book "Still Going Strong", a collection of interviews, reviews and newspaper snippets about Whitehouse and their legendary live actions. Created, edited and published by Mark Crumby's IMPULSE label, it has become a massively sought after collector's item. The book, that is. Not the tape. The tape never got the attention it deserves, and everything around it seems to be embarrassing for the involved persons. It took 20 years to unveil the mysteries to it, to identify the names and persons behind this labour of love. While considered a parody by many, including William Bennett, we feel that this highly underrated work by dedicated artists should be brought to a new generation of Power Electronic kids.
