PSYCHEDELIC/PROGRESSIVE/FOLK

COSMIC GROUND - IV (2LP) (LP/ADANSONIA)

Studio album no. 4 by Cosmic Ground (Dirk Jan Müller from Electric Orange) contains seven different tracks with seven different atmospheres. These are great further explorations to the electronic sound of the 1970s and beyond. This DOUBLE-LP edition on 180-GRAM MARBLE COLOURED VINYL is limited to 300 units.

SCHIZO FUN ADDICT - EL SHOEGAZE BOSSA NOVA (LP/SUGARBUSH)

Cult band Schizo Fun Adict serves up a delicious cocktail of elegant bossa nova stylings and fuzzed up shoegaze, and even blends in some stronger psychedelic flavours on Side 2. This edition is limited to 300 copies!

HOLLOWSCENE - HOLLOWSCENE (CD/BLACK WIDOW)

An interesting CD by an Italian band that enriches progressive rock with lyrics taken from American and English literature.

HUMAN FACTOR - LET NATURE TAKE ITS COURSE (CD/R.A.I.G.)

On CD, this is the excellent third studio-album by the acclaimed instrumental space-/progrock band from Russia.

The 8-song debut-album by an awesome German psych-rock band, issued on CD.

PUNK/HARDCORE

NEW YORK DOLLS - A HARD DAY'S NIGHT (2LP) (LP/NORTON)

On DOULE-LP, here are 21 obscure live-in-the-studio recordings of proto punk legends The New York Dolls, dating back to 1973. Dig these primal cuts of original classics s.a. 'Looking For A Kiss' and 'Personality Crisis', and wild cover versions of Gary US Bonds' 'Seven Day Weekend' and Chuck Berry's 'Back In The USA', all served up with enough raunchy romp and stomp to start a riot!

REAL KIDS - REAL KIDS (LP/NORTON)

On 180-GRAM VINYL and with remastered sound, it's the 41st anniversary edition of this classic Boston proto-punk album. The front cover features the original iconic picture and artwork, the inner gatefold displays the unreal coolness of the band with a 4c photo.

S.H.I.T. - COMPLETE S.H.I.T. (LP/LA VIDA ES UN M)

Out on vinyl, this is a 21-track round up of everything these Toronto shitters have committed to 7-inch vinyl and tape during the years 2014-2016. Those releases were on Static Shock Records, Iron Lung, Lengua Armada Discos and La Vida Es Un Mus.

S.H.I.T. - WHAT DO YOU STAND FOR? (LP/LA VIDA ES UN M)

On 'What Do You Stand For?', Toronto's S.H.I.T. delivers a bit less than 20 minutes of thrashing hc gristle.

 

 

INDUSTRIAL/EXPERIMENTAL/NOISE/NEOFOLK/GOTHIC

RITUAL VEIL - WOLF IN THE NIGHT (12"/AVANT!)

Presented on 12-inch vinyl is a six-track EP by the Portland-based post-punk/goth/synthwave outfit formed by A. Alexander Wolfe (vocals), Tim Iserman (synth and programming) and Wolfgang Williams (guitar).

KALKUN, MARI - ILMAMOTSAN (LP/NORDIC NOTES)

'Ilmamotsan' (In The Wood Of The World) is Mari Kalkun's third solo album and comes seven years after the critically acclaimed 'Vihmakono' (Dear Rain). A voice that seems to speak to us from the heart of the Estonian forest, Mari Kalkun's music is at once of a place and yet deeply personal. Rooted in ancient Estonian and Voru traditions and infused with the peculiar features of Estonia's dialects and the traditional regilaul chant, her music resonates deep within us to touch spirits and souls - even when the language may be strange to us. On red vinyl and coming with a download code.

SDH (SEMIOTICS DEPARTMENT OF HETERONYMS) - SEMIOTICS DEPARTMENT OF HETERONYMS (LP/AVANT!)

Two key figures of the synth-wave/industrial scene of Barcelona, Andrea P. Latorre and Sergi Algiz, release the self-titled debut-LP from their joint venture. The eight tracks are driven by sinuous synth lines, steady beats and Andrea's sensual, nocturnal vocals.

SOUNDTRACKS/LOUNGE/CULT ETC

PAGE, PAUL -& HIS PARADISE- - PACIFIC PARADISE (2LP) (LP/SUBLIMINAL SOUN)

The music on this unusual exotic album, takes you right to the ocean's edge, mingles you with jungle drums and animals, the booming surf, seagulls, and ocean liners in a coral kaleidoscope of sounds. This is the real deal authentic Tiki bar soundtrack. Paul Page and his Paradise Music entertained in Polynesian themed restaurants all over Southern California from the late '30s to the mid-'60s, then all the way out to the Kona Coast during the late '60s and early '70s. The whole time, he kept leaving behind these little independent albums, recorded specifically for the purpose of selling them to the people coming to his small venue shows. Which, when you think about it, is basically what all the most-worthy bands to dig do these days, outside the doting eye of the lame record industry. Dude was so ahead of his time! Subliminal Sounds now brings you the full Paul Page saga with this comprehensive 2LP compilation. Includes a 32-page booklet with in-depth liner notes by author and pop historian Domenic Priore and foreword by author and urban archeologist Sven Kirsten.
