US AND THEM - WALK LIGHT EP (BLUE/WHITE)
Whilst recording two critically acclaimed EPs of cover versions for the Fruits de Mer label, Anders and Britt, better known as Us And Them, built up a collection of self-penned songs. Four of those songs appear on this EP. Limited edition 200 copies in Blue/White. Us And Them are Anders and Britt, and theyre Swedish. Britt sings and Anders plays instruments. Growing up, Anders became very fond of England in general, and more specifically, English music. However, convincing band-mates that folk, psychedelia, and baroque pop was the way to go would prove impossible. To realise his dreams, he needed to move on. Britt is an actress and, although you wouldnt know it, singing is new to her.Together, Us And Them is a combination of experience and newly found curiosity. They make fragile, ethereal music that manages at the same time to convey an everyday quality.

GROUP ART FOU - GAF
This album is the result of four days playing in the Dutch town of Middelburg, Zeeland. At different locations over there recording were made by a group of nine musicians (members of MTVS, 35007, Zombies Under Stress, Skanky Ho, Het Droste Effect, Mescalectric, Woody & Paul and Hydepark. From around 40 pieces or raw recordings 2x20 minutes were selected for this album, a total of 10 tracks. Expect some sort of krautrock/ambient/primitive stoner rock which reminds a bit of Can and Neu! Or according to W. Jongeneelen in Oor magazine: "Is this Tortoise on crack?, an instrumental Neubauten on speed or Battles on LSD?" 180 gram vinyl in silkscreened cover.

HIDRIA SPACEFOLK - ASTRONAUTICA
2012 album by Finnish psych/prog masters HIDRIA SPACEFOLK. The making of this album grew to epic proportions and we experienced numerous setbacks. The end result is aptly named 'Astronautica' with reference to the Argonauts Odyssey in Greek mythology. Even though the cyclops has thrown spanners in the works and the sirens lured us to deep waters, at last the golden fleece is in our possession. Or the same story in Finnish mythology: Sampo has been captured back from Lovehetar, and it starting to spread good to the world once again. Tracklist: 'Ad Astra', 'Cycloop', 'Endymion', 'Badding', 'Seirenes'.

KOMPENDIUM - (BLACK) BENEATH THE WAVES (2LP)
Limited edition 200 copies 180 gram black vinyl. Put your headphones on. Turn out the lights. We're winding back the clock. Remember when major record labels had big bucks to spend on creating aural masterpieces? When commercial musicians were given creative freedom and their work was released on sleek vinyl encased in gatefold sleeves? Those years may be a fond memory but Magentas keyboard player Rob Reed has wound back the clock to produce a breathtaking concept album; Kompendium's "Beneath The Waves". "Beneath The Waves" features a guest list of Prog Rocks most respected musicians including Steve Hackett, Gavin Harrison, and Mel Collins. The album is a dark Celtic fairytale set in Ireland at the turn of the 20th century and is about a man whose wife commits suicide, only for them to be reunited in death. Steve Balsamo, recently with Jon Lord's band, takes on lead vocals. The album is housed in a laminated gatefold sleeve with full colour inners, bringing Geoff Taylor's specially commissioned artwork to life.

WALL OF DEATH - MAIN OBSESSIONS
Wall of Death, together since April 2010, is now ranked among the principal exponents of the new European post-psychedelic rock scene. Inspired by the scintillating understatement of the Velvet Underground, the esthetics of Pink Floyd, the stridency of Neu and the Silver Apples, this trio of Gabriel (vocals, guitar, sitar), Brice (keyboard, vocals) and Adam (drums) draws us into their somber, troubling world of uncertainty, perpetually seeking the keys to its future in the ruins of the past. With roots extending from America to old-world European culture, Wall of Death creates a sound that is powerful, heavy, haunting and visionary. A synthesizer reaching deep into the bass register, an acid-tinged guitar drenched with echo, a warm-toned organ and violent drums combine with voices that range from soaring to fathomless, creating a masochistic yet flamboyant universe in which this group heals its collective wounds.

SALMA GANDHI - THE QUEST FOR NONSENSE NEVER ENDS
Salma Gandhi is a Swedish instrumental band which formed in 2005 in Malmo. The members had been active in the stoner/metal/punkscene in Malmo for years and were hungry to create something totally different. After hours of jam sessions and lots of fun they started to find some kind of a sound and concept and started making compositions. The musical genre is sometimes described as '70s film music or stoner-jazz and the goal of the band is to give the recipient a somewhat narrative musical trip with a gallery of strange characters and different murky landscapes popping up along the way. Some of the main influenses are Pink Floyd, Oddjob, The Ethiopiques, Boris Vian and Alfred Jarry.

ELLISTER, JACK -& YORDAN ORCHESTRA- - PSYCH INTRODUXEON/BRINGING INGREDIENTS TOGETH
Recently known for his sell-out 7" ep on Fruit De Mer, Jack Ellister reminds us of his debut 30 minute CD-EP a sadly ignored jewel, till now!!! Sounding Like a baroque, burlesque and grungier version of early '70s Pink Floyd, Yordan Orchestra wear their lysergic attitude loudly - announcing they have "mushrooms to try" on 'Faced You In A Neon Light' - but retain a core of approachable, melodic musical experimentalism that certain media-celebrated British bands would do well to emulate. It's difficult to call these tracks songs in the traditional sense, they're more like psych/progressive musical movements with a rare originality too. Jack's voice is effective as another instrument in much the same way as Bowie's has always been. He has a passion for what hes singing, moving from whispers to the occasional scream to put a mood across. Instrumentally too, theres a lot going on. Besides the usual guitars, bass, drums theres piano, cello, vibraphone, horns and a backing choir (not all at once though!). It all makes for one of the most intriguing releases you'll hear in quite a while, and three years too late! Thanks to FRUIT DE MER for bringing Jack to our attention.

OLIVERS - COMPLETE RECORDINGS 1964-1971
The Olivers from Fort Wayne, Indiana are best known for their highly sought after 1966 Picture Cover 45 on Phalanx Records titled "I Saw What You Did b/w Beeker Street". The single got picked up by RCA Records for nationwide release and is today rated as one of the best and most exciting double sided major label garage 45s of the 1960s. A planned second single and LP release for RCA never happened. "Complete Recordings, 1964-71" is a 15-track CD presenting the bands 1969 top notch psych album "Lost Dove Sessions", features the nine minute long "Jessica Ryder", the spooky "Mushroom", the brooding organ driven "The End", psychers such as "Ball Of Fire", heavy rockers such as "Free" and the trippy never ending 11-minute slashing guitar freakout of "Social Slavery". Non less than eight bonus cuts are added to the CD incl. the groups sole double sided 1966 fuzzkiller 45, two rare 1965 single releases by pre-Olivers garage band "The Serfmen" responsible for one of the most ever snarling 60s punk version of Ronnie Love's "Chills & Fever" plus three more incredible early Aldrich/Richie penned killer garage originals. The CD closes with a rare 45 recorded by former Olivers members under the name "Triad". This amazing 60-minute trip through the sixties and captures the incredible talent and versatility of the Olivers and proves that the band does not only deserve the plaudit "Indiana Sixties Rock Heroes", but also had the potential for the national breakthrough that never happened. A 16- page booklet documents the bands long career as told by its original members and a cache of unseen photos completes the bands 1964-71 history.

GRAVE DIGGER - CLASH OF GODS (2LP)
An Opus filled with Gods, Heroes and Legends. Power Metal Hymns! The highly acclaimed predecessor "The Clans Will Rise Again" was dedicated to the sheer mystique and the proud people of Scotland, but on their latest album, GRAVE DIGGER enters the legendary realm of Ancient Greek and its gods and creatures. The lyrics of "Clash of the Gods" pay tribute to the legendary Medusa, Odysseus, Hades and Kerberos amongst others. These tales are clad in sweeping Power Metal compositions filled with powerful riffing and catchy choruses. The songs range from fast and driving double bass tracks, anthemic mid tempo compositions up to rousing and simply beautiful Power Metal ballads. Crowned by Chris Boltdendahl's charismatic vocals, the new album offers everything a true Metal heart desires! The magnificent artwork provides the finishing touches and together with the compositions, brings the legendary figures of Ancient Greek to life. "Clash of the Gods" is an unbelievable compact and energy driven opus and will grant GRAVE DIGGER themselves a warm welcome into the pantheon of the gods!

DIRTY PASSION - IN WONDERLAND
Swedish DIRTY PASSION takes it all to a whole new level with their new album "In Wonderland". Since their debut "Different Tomorrow", they have evolved their sound to something unique, withouth letting go of their peers (Y&T, FASTER PUSSYCAT, POISON, BEAUTIFUL BEAST). The band have toured hard since their debut album in 2011, with LOUDNESS and L.A. GUNS among others, and gained a solid reputation in the melodic hardrock scene, and this new album offers better songs, solid rockers, as well as melodic slow emotional tracks. Really great guitars, and a new vocalist Kriss Lohikoski Svensson as well. "In Wonderland" will prove DIRTY PASSION in top of the melodic Swedish hardrock pyramid.

HOUSE OF COSY CUSHIONS - HAUNT ME SWEETLY
Songwriter & visual artist Richard Bolhuis (NL/UK) forms the core of House of Cosy Cushions together with drummer Stephen Kiernan (IE). The limited edition vinyl House of Cosy Cushions & Katie Kim (2009) was decribed by the Irish Times as post-rock music at its instinctive, risk-taking finest'. The new album Haunt Me Sweetly was recorded by John Haggis in Waterford and features guest appearances by Kate Glavey (Burrows), Caroline Baker, Katie Kim and Deaf Joe. A euphoric collection of dark love songs and dreamy instrumentals that remind of WOVEN HAND and echoes influences such as PJ Harvey, Sparklehorse, Tiny Vipers and Vic Chesnutt. PRESS: Songwriter Richard Bolhuis cleverly combines innate pop sensibility with grand neo-classical scope, setting it all off with a twist of mystical folk spookiness...A beautiful, bewitching experience' (The Post).

HOUSE OF COSY CUSHIONS - HAUNT ME SWEETLY
Songwriter and visual artist Richard Bolhuis (NL/UK) forms the core of House Of Cosy Cushions together with drummer Stephen Kiernan (Ireland). The limited edition vinyl House of Cosy Cushions & Katie Kim (2009) was decribed by the Irish Times as post-rock music at its instinctive, risk-taking finest'. The new album 'Haunt Me Sweetly' was recorded by John Haggis in Waterford and features guest appearances by Kate Glavey (Burrows), Caroline Baker, Katie Kim and Deaf Joe. A euphoric collection of dark love songs and dreamy instrumentals that remind of WOVEN HAND and echoes influences such as PJ Harvey, Sparklehorse, Tiny Vipers and Vic Chesnutt. "Songwriter Richard Bolhuis cleverly combines innate pop sensibility with grand neo-classical scope, setting it all off with a twist of mystical folk spookiness...A beautiful, bewitching experience." (The Post).

SMTVUZ - BEST OF
This album is the result of recording the last two years. All shows and rehearsals were recorded on a 4 track minidisc recorder. From this enormous amount of material six tracks were chosen, which are based on the 80s industrial sounds, but then more up-to-date. Don't expect relaxing music but a wall of sound of synthetic sonic violence. sMTvUz is a collaboration between legendary experimental/industrial artists MTVS and Zombies Under Stress. For fans of early SPK and De Fabriek. 180 gram vinyl in silkscreened cover.

MIROUZE, JEAN-PIERRE - LE MARIAGE COLLECTIF O.S.T
In our modern world, everything ends up - or will end up - in the garbage dump or in a museum. Occasionally, objects make it to the museum by way of the dump. The record you are holding is one of those objects. With the exception of two songs that already came out on a 45, the material on this disk was destined to remain in the trash. In 1971, a very few copies were made on acetate in an attempt to attract the interest of record labels. One was miraculously found in July, 2010 in a Paris garbage dump (quai d'Issy). In the mid-60s, Jean-Pierre MIROUZE was hired to work on Jean-Christophe Avertys very popular and very "Pop" program "Dim Dam Dom." Mirouze was in charge of the shows soundtrack. In 1971, Hervé Lamarre, who had just finished shooting the film "Le Mariage Collectif" in Sweden, thought of using the "Dim Dam Dom" team to create the musical score for his film. This film, which claims to try to justify open relationships and sexual freedom, is actually a botched second-rate picture that combines evocations of the Beat Generation, hippie idealism and softcore nudity, in a work that is - quite frankly - uninteresting. Jean-Pierre Mirouze, because of his association with "Dim Dam Dom," was expected to bring a trendy touch to the project. Seeking to round out funding for what was, in essence, a commercial job, Mirouze went to Bagatelle, a Paris publisher specializing in film music, among other genres. While he was there, he played the melody of "Together" for them. These few notes were enough to convince the publisher to finance the recording of the soundtrack. Auditions were held, and Barry Green was recruited to sing the theme song. The recording was wrapped up in a week by a top-flight group of musicians, including Jean-Pierre Sabar, a talented organist who would be instrumental in the future success of the song "Sexopolis." Nine tracks were produced during these sessions. Bagatelle then started looking for a record label to issue the soundtrack album. In an attempt to interest record companies, a handful of test pressings were made, solely in the form of acetates. The songs on this album come from one of these acetates, found, in July, 2010, in a garbage dump. We could not have invented a story this strange. But let's get back to the film. It turned out to be a failure, and Bagatelle had a difficult time selling the soundtrack project. Finally, AZ (a French label) agreed to put out a 45 with "Together" on side A, billed as the "hit" from the film, and "Sexopolis" on the B side as an instrumental filler. The 45's release went completely unnoticed, of course. It was rediscovered in the early 2000s, thanks - ironically - to the song "Sexopolis," and became the Holy Grail for worldwide collectors of film music.
