WICKED LADY - RUN THE NIGHT/I'M A FREAK
Two killer Wicked Lady tracks pressed for the first time on a 45rpm 7" for maximum volume and power! 'Run The Night' (recorded in 1969, taken from the 'Axeman Cometh' album) is raw psychedelic hard-rock with dirty fuzz-wah, sounding like a mix between Black Sabbath and The Stooges! 'I'm A Freak' (recorded in 1972, taken from 'Psychotic Overkill') is a proto-Motörhead hard-rock bomb! Limited to 500 copies, not to be repressed!

ALIEN MUSTANGS - SHADOWS/HYPNIC TRIP
It has been 7 years since Alien Mustangs' debut 7" and nearly 2 since their much celebrated album 'Alienation', though it seems like time stands almost still into their hypnic (sic) universe. Lazy slides, recurring bass lines and stoned tempos are dressing the scenery of this 12" single with the anticipated levels of fuzz. A perfect prescription indeed.

ACID MOTHERS TEMPLE & THE MELTING PARAISO U.F.O. - (BLACK) MINSTREL IN THE GALAXY
Repress of 300 copies on black vinyl. 2004's 'Minstrel In The Galaxy' was the first Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso UFO studio recording since the departure of vocalist/synth goddess Cotton Casino. To replace Cotton's space whispers, AMT recruited Japanese duo Afrirampo to contribute vocals to this album and they fill the void with ease. Musically you can forget the mind-melting guitar psychouts of previous AMT albums, this is the sound of a much darker AMT in comedown mode. Drones, acoustic guitars, misplaced voices and a beautiful 42 minute centre-piece title track all combine to make this their finest experimental studio work since the acclaimed 'Absolutely Freak Out (Zap Your Mind!)' double album. The decision to make it CD only at the time was down to the epic title track being almost 42 minutes in length. Fast forward fifteen years and new technologies and we have the first ever vinyl release of this classic album, with a new mix edited especially for vinyl by main man Makoto Kawabata.

AKTOR - PLACEBO
The intercontinental rock trio Aktor's sophomore album 'Placebo'. Drawing from '70s heavy rock and '80s Top 40 pop alike, the album is fit to lead the Adult Contemporary Heavy Metal genre for 2020. A musical pathway to the worlds of universal distance and awkward intimacy, the multi-melodious blend of acoustic, electric, and electronic instrumentation on 'Placebo' provides a deep foundation for singer Chris Black's inquisitive lyrics and smashing choruses. While the myriad propelling forces behind Aktor -Jussi Lehtisalo, Tomi Leppänen and Chris (Professor) Black- may seem cloaked in the mystery called abundance, the addictive nature of their eclectic blend is no mystery at all. For fans of Circle, Dawnbringer, Pharaoh Overlord, Alan Davey, Sandy Pearlman, Angel Rat, Mental Vortex, Roky Erickson, Rickenbacker, Rainbow Road, and 'Paranoia' (the first Aktor album, of course).

ALIENS - LIVE ON THE MOON (2LP)
The Aliens descended from the ashes of the acclaimed Beta Band in the mid-noughties with a fresh dose of electronic psychedelic rock combined with a multitude of other genres. Immediately signed to EMI their debut album made the UK top-50 before the bottom fell out of the industry in the wake of the digital piracy tidal wave. The Aliens managed to release a second album before vanishing off the face of the Earth completely... until now. As a prelude to their return in 2020 The Aliens have beamed down a live recording from the archives taken from a show on a secret Moonbase. 'Live On The Moon' is presented as a special, limited edition (300 copies) double LP by Drone Rock Records with the first disc pressed on 'blue moon' transparent blue vinyl and the second disc on 'full moon' transparent yellow vinyl.

 DEEP DISTANCE
COSMIC GROUND - 5
The on-off project for Electric Orange's electronic maestro Dirk Jan Muller, and LP 5 here, is simply incredible. Three super heavy, deep mind-splitting kosmische space jams- heavy as ever on leanings towards the famed Berlin school sound, but also nods to the heavily echo drenched sound of Gunter Schickert, and 'Inventions For Electric Guitar' era Manuel Gottsching. This truly is that good. First track 'Girls From Outer Space' has perhaps a more tuneful feel to previous releases, and recalls early period Emeralds or some Oneohtrix Point Never; but builds across greater mind frying intense peaks before descending into a gentle Popol Vuh like serenity. 'Compact/Space' continues the pace, clocking in at almost 10 minutes of rising and spiraling beautiful, dark analogue deep space drones. Consisting the entire length of side 2, 'Operation: Echo' does pretty much what it says on the tin, an incredible echo drenched cosmic tour-de-force heavy on the intense sequenced vibe of prime era Schulze/T. Dream, arcing outwards and upwards in sheer intensity and whacked out kosmische/psychedelic ambition. Available as a 300 copy vinyl pressing on suitably apt 'galaxy yellow/black' smoky vinyl.

HAPPY END - HAPPY END
Following the abortive appearance of Japanese psychedelic band Apryl Fool, who imploded after producing an album and an EP for Columbia Japan in 1969, bassist/keyboardist/singer and main creative force Haroumi Hosono and drummer Takashi "Rei" Matsumoto formed Happy End with guitarist Shigeru Suzuki and guitarist/singer Eiichi Ohtaki. The new group's self-titled debut, released in 1970 on URC, the pioneering independent label founded by guitarist Hayakawa Yoshio (initially as the affiliated imprint of mail order company, Underground Record Club), evidenced more cohesion than the Apryl Fool LP; instead of the lengthy, excessive freak jams of the earlier set, Happy End's track list took the form of more easily digestible slices of Japanese psychedelia, the understated drumming perhaps referencing Matsumoto's veneration of The Beatles. Of course, with song titles that translated as 'Unflyable Sky' and 'Enemy Remember Thanatos!' the music was certainly adventurous. The group would continue for the next few years, before Hosono began to concentrate on solo work, as well as various side projects, which would culminate in the formation of Yellow Magic Orchestra.

HOOFFOOT - THE LIGHTS IN THE AISLE WILL GUIDE YOU
The second album by Swedish progressive jazz-rockers Hooffoot mixes spontaneity with carefully crafted themes and the music falls into place as natural and prophetic as the album title. It's an eclectic blend of folk/jazz/prog but you will hear the musicians stepping up to the next level, sweating more and taking more chances. The band is now a tight quartet but still manages to sound larger than on the debut. The soundscape is further expanded by invited solo artists contributing with percussion, violin, saxophone and trumpet.

KUNGENS MAN - TRAPPMUSIK (2LP)
Playing improvised music is a gift. It's alchemy, chemistry, interlocking heartbeats and sometimes a struggle. A lot of it is about ambience. Usually Kungens Män record at home, in busy Stockholm. This session was different. 'Trappmusik' was recorded in the legendary Silence Studio in the deep woods of Värmland and is a perfect example of how much setting actually effects the music made. 'Trappmusik' is the Kungens Män chill out album. It has its peaks, but the overall vibe is calm, introspective and vibing off the fantastic recording room that has hosted so many giants (Älgarnas Trädgard, Träd, Gräs Och Stenar, Bo Hansson...). Use this music however you want. Play it loud or put it on as background music. Lie down on the floor or dance to it. The woods are singing.

LEVEE CAMP MOAN - LEVEE CAMP MOAN
In 1969 Bracknell based blues rock outfit Levee Camp Moan released what was destined to become one of the most sought after UK private pressings of the period. Issued on the County Recording Services label (SVVS 132), a small run of discs was pressed up and sold locally at gigs as well as being handed out to friends. Housed in an obligatory custom built sleeve that had a snapshot of the group pasted onto the front, this LP marked out their status as one of the most exciting bands to emerge out of the thriving local underground scene in the Bracknell Delta. The group had taken their name from the old blues number and the band members, manager and assorted roadies took up residence in a local farmhouse known as Peacock Farm. It was there that LCM would rehearse into the small hours thumping out a mixture of blues standards as well as their own compositions until they had become a tight unit ready to 'take on the world'. Influences ranged from the urban blues of Otis Rush, Buddy Guy and Junior Wells to Muddy Waters, Skip James and beyond. The more or less contemporary white blues of the time, Canned Heat, Savoy Brown and Paul Butterfield also served as a major source of inspiration. From their humble roots LCM quickly built up a following on the British Blues circuit, frequenting the likes of the Marquee, Crawdaddy, Klooks Kleek, Eel Pie Island and Rikki Tik club. On the college circuit they toured extensively with Chickenshack, Canned Heat and Muddy Waters with performances being of a high enough standard to generate record company interest. Unable to secure a record deal, they had no other choice but to do it themselves. And so it was in the winter months of early '69 that LCM entered Virgin Sound in nearby Windsor to lay down eight tracks recorded on a four track machine. At the time of its creation the term private pressing would have had little or no relevance in musical circles and the significant thing to remember is that in such cases there is no record company interference and what the band was able to produce under these conditions was the archetypal private pressing, raw, under produced and thrillingly primitive. The project successfully captured the spirit and aggression of an exciting new band and the original artefact is now a zeitgeist of that remarkable era. After Levee Camp Moan, Ian Campbell went on to carve out a busy musical career performing with, amongst many others, the Nashville Teens, Arthur Brown's band and Mungo Jerry. Bassist Dave Stubbs played with a host of notables including gigs in Eric Clapton's band and lengthy tours with Uli Jon Roth (ex Scorpions). This is the first, legitimate vinyl reissue of this extraordinarily rare album. Includes insert with rare photos and full band history by Pete Sarfas.

RYMDSTYRELSEN - LUNAR MOUNTAINS (BLACK)
This album is the sophomore effort from Rymdstyrelsen, Stockholm's most loved spacerock act. The emotional charge of the music owes as much to '70s hard rock as to the current space trend, and they somehow turn this into an advantage. This interstellar crusade comes armed with long intense tracks, wailing fuzz guitars and a wealth of analogue synthesizers. The title song is an absolute epic into crystal meth dementia while tracks like 'White Dwarf' owes as much to NWOBHM as to mid-'70s Hawkwind. Co-release between Kommun2/Svensk Psych Aften (home to Agusa, Hills, Centrum, Yuri Gagarin etc). The cover illustration is an original work by Swedish designer Henning Lindahl.

YURI GAGARIN - (BLACK) THE OUTSKIRTS OF REALITY
Almost 4 years after their second, Yuri Gagarin return with their third studio album! You certainly cannot accuse the Swedish space-rockers for being over-productive, neither can you for shape-shifting in the name of publicity... Based on their fundamental "Space Ritual-era-Hawkwind" template, Yuri Gagarin stay firm on their path while getting more versatile in the ideas, more evocative in their soundscapes and, most importantly, richer in their melodic approach; unlike many of their contemporaries, Yuri Gagarin, except for their ambient mastery, rely on their innate sense for melody and, almost cinematic, approach to drama. On 'The Outskirts Of Reality' Yuri Gagarin present five songs. Maybe with no lyrics, but still, these are songs, with the entire human feelings' part lying in the details; as if stuck in a never-ending spacetime continuum loop, trying to fabricate small changes each time, looking for a hole leading to eternity... On this, their third lifetime, their riffs are...more bad-ass, their rhythms more punishing, their themes irresistible. Wish they never find this hole! Co-release between Sound Effect and Kommun2.

BEND THE FUTURE - PENDELLÖSUNG
Founded in January 2019, Bend the Future is a progressive rock band based in Grenoble, France. Identified generally by their odd-time-scaled tunes, they incorporate elements of '70s prog rock, jazz, funk along with Eastern Europe music in their sound. Bend the Future was initiated by Can Yildirim (guitars/voice), Rémi Pouchain (bass), Pierre-Jean Ménabé (saxophone) and Piel Pawlowski (drums). More recently, the band has reached its final formation after Samy Chebre (keyboards) joined. During the last days of summer in Little Big Studios, Grenoble, they recorded their debut album, 'Pendellösung'. 'Pendellösung' tells the story of a hermit in a secluded forest who is a pilgrim in his own memories, memories which are recorded in his writings addressed to an unnamed loved one. The album explores the concepts of isolation, yearning, confrontation, and awakening through extended-length tunes blended with inventive musicality and a wide range of emotional twists.

RAJAYTTAJAT - III
When Räjäyttäjät first appeared in Finland ten years ago -live, on cassette, and on vinyl- it was like a cleansing fire. Räjäyttäjät arrived to blast rock music into smithereens, atoms, ash, and crap. Rock music was left powerless before the trio's onslaught. The flamethrowers disguised as instruments left only scorched earth behind. At last we now know, with this LP, that the band burned down rock in the name of love; and only so that it could bloom forth stronger and more handsome than ever. Räjäyttäjät are all about cohesion. Rock is eternal, the new age of Aquarius is upon us, and the colours are glowing brighter. The message, both musically and lyrically, is surprisingly clear. The touch is experimental but firm, and the music is beautiful even at its most angular moments. The band is still free to emit an unpredictable art fart as and when required, but otherwise this new album definitely slips into the `classic rock' section of record shops - in the proudest possible sense of that term. The world may glisten with shit, but you can listen to these hymns and still live like a civilised human being.

KAMMERFLIMMER KOLLEKTIEF/STOLTERFOHT/DROGEKAMP/WEB - EIN STRUMPF WACHST DURCH DEN TISCH
An engaging and intriguing radio drama by the German poet Ulf Stolterfoht, directed by Iris Drogekamp and Thomas Weber, with music by the Kammerflimmer Kollektief. Based on secret messages exchanged by imprisoned Red Army Faction (RAF) members like Andreas Baader, Gudrun Ensslin and the rest of the gang, through this radio drama by Stolterfoht, the authors explore the power of names and denominations. The music was created by Kammerflimmer Kollektief, in their unique and uncategorizable blend of sound drawing inspiration from jazz, folk and electronics.

BREIDABLIK - OMICRON
Breidablik is a progressive electronic band from Bergen, Norway. Breidablik was formed by Morten Birkeland Nielsen in 2013 with the idea of creating music inspired by the classic Berlin School of Electronic Music movement in the 1970 and 1980s, albeit with a more contemporary musical expression. Breidablik's music is mainly based on analog synthesizers, although acoustic and electric guitars, as well as flutes and percussion, are included as added zest. Conceptually, 'Omicron' deals with circularity and the album contains a two-part title track with a total playing time of 44 minutes that should be played back-to-back. For 'Omicron', Breidablik has reqruited Håkon Oftung (Jordsjo, Elds Mark, ex-Tusmorke) as guitarist and flutist.

DESTINY, BOB - WANG DANG/MAHNA (TROUBLES)
Raw and wild soul-funk-r&b-garage from 1970, recorded and released only in Algeria! Imagine James Brown fronting The Sonics!! Born in Puerto Rico, Bob Destiny grew up in Harlem (USA) and has a fascinating story: from starting playing piano as a child (self-taught) and tap dancing with the Five Chocolate Drops when he was 6 years old, to meeting Billie Holliday and playing with her; from appearing in a film with Shirley Temple to musicals in Broadway, dancing at Mankiewicz's movie 'Cleopatra', singing at the San Remo Festival... In 1969, Bob went to Algeria to teach music at the Algerian National Theater. He also continued with his singing career while living there. In 1970, he released a couple of 45s featuring 'Wang Dang' and 'Mahna (Troubles)' on the Freedom Musique label. He was also involved with the creation of the first Pan African Festival with Mahboud Bati and Frank Pourcel. These 45s are very rare and were first discovered by the great Habibi Funk label a few years ago, who included 'Wang Dang' on one of their compilations.For this Pharaway Sounds 45, they have selected one track from his first 45 and another from his second one. After playing in Morocco with Hahmed Maraki and forming bands like The Fingers, Bob arrived to Spain in the '80s. He created a jazz school in Zaragoza and was involved with the famous Jazz en la Margen festival. In the '90s, Bob moved to France, focusing in composition, gospel, musicals and soundtracks. Sadly, he passed away on March 31, 2016.

JOHANSSON, SVEN-AKE - SCHLINGERLAND/DYNAMISCHE SCHWINGUNGEN
Sven-Âke Johansson (Mariestad, Sweden, 1943) works as a composer, drummer, accordionist, poet, and visual artist. Longtime collaborator of the free improv scene in the German sixties with ao Kowald, Brötzmann, Schlippenbach. He contributed to numerous exhibitions, publications and recordings. Sven-Âke Johansson's 1972 record 'Schlingerland' presents just the man and his drum set, exploring the polyrhythmic possibilities of his kit. 'Schlingerland' fills a gap in the documentation of '70s European improvisation. At the same time, it retains a surprisingly contemporary sound which reverberates in the ear, mind, and heart of the 21st century listener.

VARIOUS - ROCKINITIS, VOL. 3
The 'Rockinitis' series showcases electric guitar blues from the mid-fifties to the early sixties. Unfettered pleasure in the form of black dance music. Third time's the charm as two heavy-hitters join the fray. Wexford, Ireland's Bill Kealy has been packing dancefloors for 30 years. He was sucked deep into the rhythm & blues vortex after following the trail back from the music of his youth: The Kinks, The Animals and the like. A truly international DJ, hear his sets at The Federal Rhythm & Blues Club in Crewe, For Dancers Only in Dublin, or as a regular guest DJ at top R&B clubs almost everywhere. Steve Longworth spent his teenage years dancing to soul at Wigan Casino. He was then drawn towards the R&B and popcorn sound. Since the early 2000s he's been running nights all across England's North - Soulful Shack, Down In The Basement and The Ad-Lib, to name a few. He's played gritty blues 45s at clubs from Barcelona to Melbourne and now regularly spins at Sheffield's mighty Room At The Top. SIDE Bill Kealy: 1. Al Simmons - You Ain't Too Old 2.

ATKINSON, FÉLICIA - SUMMER EYES
Félicia Atkinson is a French artist, currently living Brussels. Though she's been making music for quite a few years, its only the past 3 years that her work got some broader attention within the underground. Her work, both released under her own name and as Je Suis Le Petit Chevalier, appeared on a string of releases from labels as Digitalis, Unread, Spekk, Shelter Press, No Kings, Hibernate, Home Normal or Aguirre. As a visual artist, Atkinson showed her artworks and musical performances in different places such as MCA of Chicago, Synchronicity in Los Angeles, an old buddhist temple near Hiroshima or Palais de Tokyo in Paris. 'Summer Eyes' is a bit lighter than Félicia's most recent output. The first track starts out with a very recognizable keyboard melody, but slowly turns into a powerful yet friendly sounding drone, with all the elements from the very start still recognizable in there. The second song is an instrumental -to her standards- popsong. These two tracks proved nearly impossible to split over two sides of a ten inch. Adding more tracks could have damaged the coherence of the EP. So we went for a one-sided 12". The artwork, with pictures of an installation made by Félicia during an artist residency in Finland, is printed in gold by the masters at Druckwerkstatt. All copies come with a download coupon.

Luster is a sixheaded beast bringing a mix of folk, doomy ballads and drones. With a.o. Annelies Monseré and members of Mote, Joe Speedboat and Edgar Wappenhalter on board, you can't go wrong. Their contribution is a unique take on the traditional 'Are You Going To Leave Me?', probably best known in the version of Shirley Collins. The version of Luster is a lot moodier. Hellvete is the solo project of Glen Steenkiste, a member of psych outfit Sylvester Anfang II and Bow Aether Group. He produces hypnotic ballads on harmonium and electronics, flowing freely in the spheres of minimalism, drones and folk music.

CHRISTENSEN, MATT/CIRCLE BROS - SPLIT LP
For most people, Matt Christensen is probably best known as the founder/singer/guitarist of Zelienople, the band from Chicago that spoiled us slow, atmospheric vaguely rock-oriented music for well over a decade. But the past few years, Christensen has been working on an impressive oeuvre of solo material as well, brought to us on quality labels like Under The Spire, Miasmah, and his own bandcamp for a lot of download-only releases. Since Matt's characteristic voice and guitarplaying define the sound Zelienople for an important part, that band is of course a valid reference point for his solo work too. However, his solo output is -in general- more delicate, sparse, eerie and straightforward. Imagine Roy Montgomery joining 'Laughing Stock'-era Talk Talk, working on a Twin Peaks-soundtrack. Circle Bros is the project of Wim Lecluyse, the man behind Morc Records. The past few years Circle Bros shifted from a pure ambient-esque project to a more song-oriented unit, though most songs are built up around an improvised core. That is definitely the case for these recordings. At the end of a long improvisation session in Strasbourg, some parts grew together into a minimal guitar structure, resulting in these two pieces. This EP is a lot more stripped down than the last two Circle Bros albums, that both were released on Three:Four Records from Switzerland. Pressed on high-quality German clear vinyl, and all sleeves are screenprinted by hand on sturdy chipboard paper. Complete with download coupon, in an edition of just over 100 copies. Recommended if you like Zelienople, Talk Talk, Roy Montgomery, Hala Strana, Grouper, pop-oriented ambient.

CIRCLE BROS - HAVEN
Circle Bros is the project of Wim Lecluyse, the man behind Morc Records. Just as with Morc records, Circle Bros doesn't focus on quantity - this is the first Circle Bros full length album since late 2001. 'Haven' is definitely one of these albums that happened by accident. The oldest recordings from this session, 'Your Sound' and 'Sure & Sure 2', were originally intended as an EP. Even though these tracks make up the core of the album, it didn't feel ready. The recordings were shelved, but then 'Unlikely', originally composed for another EP, seemed to match all too well. This was what was necessary to start working with the original recordings again. Ironically, the opening track 'No Turning Back' was the last one to be put on tape. (Literally - the album was mainly recorded on an 8-track cassette recorder). It took almost two years before these tracks made it into a whole - and then it turned out that an LP seemed the best way to gather them. This is an album in the classic sense - not made to be listened to in shuffle mode. So there was no intention to make an album - these songs just proved to be heard best in an album-form. Michael Anderson (of Drekka) mastered the recordings, making the album sound even more coherent. On 'Haven', you'll still hear echoes from the classic drone-outfits likes of Windy and Carl or Azusa Plane, but the sound palette is no longer focused just on guitars. Organ, vocals and sound-collages give the more recent recordings a very warm tone, and sometimes refer to the experimental pop- and folk structures of e.g. Richard Youngs, Grouper or Castanets. The LP is pressed in an edition of 143 copies. The jackets were silkscreened by Levi Seeldraeyers of Smeraldina-Rima. Recommended if you like: Drone, folk, experimental singer-songwriting, Flying Saucer Attack, Roy Montgomery, Castanets, Grouper, Richard Youngs - or anything on Morc Records really.

FREE/SLOPE - ABRACADABRA
Available again. Musically, Free/Slope's second record once again draws heavily upon the kosmische sound of those revered key Sky, Brain, Ohr and co. releases. It's arguably less beaty, more ambient than motorik, more 'Sowiesoso'/'Zuckerzeit' era Cluster than Neu! Beautifully organic electronics grow and swell, recalling moods akin to some of Popol Vuh and Ashra's epic, unsurpassed highs, with more of that Gottsching inspired guitar genius sprinkled throughout. Another truly lovely record. Beautiful, kraut inspired psychedelia, timeless and momentous. Co-release with Sound Effect (Greece).

BAILIFF, JESSICA - OLD THINGS
This record is a collection of rare and unreleased material, mostly recorded between the release of her second and third album. As such, it can be seen as the missing link between the rather droney second record, and the starker Jessica Bailiff record. This is more than "just" a collection of older material: this is what her third record could have been, if it wouldn't have taken her three years to complete. Songs like "Your sounds make patterns in my eyes" or "Maybe tomorrow" have the familiar sound of her first records, but already hint in the direction of the more folky current sound. Whereas a song like "Let time breathe" definitely is an example of her more direct approach, it still echoes her freeform guitarsongs. The best of two worlds. Most of the songs were recorded by Jessica at home. Jesse Edwards, with whom she also records as the duo Northern Song Dynasty, plays on two songs. Crush was recorded by Alan Sparhawk (of Low), who also plays electric 12-string guitar on that track. The CD comes in a beautiful full colour gatefold packaging.

HOOFFOOT - HOOFFOOT
Hooffoot is a large format instrumental rock jazz fusion group from Malmö, Sweden. With exquisite teamwork the 6-8 musicians navigate through seas of sound carrying the listener from pleasant harbors of melody and into the unholy waters of mad improvisation. For the jazz man, tired of the tidy sounds of modern recordings, Hooffoot is a breeze from the past. In the '70s jazz used to be evil as performed by e.g. Weather Report and Soft Machine. For the rocker, 'Hooffoot' is an ear opener, showing that Miles Davis lives right next door to Black Sabbath.

IDITAROD - KLEINE
Kleine was released in 2002 on tape only. Though it was recorded over the course of five years, this is probably their most coherent output - the record starts with mostly acoustic parts, mixed with more psychedelic parts all into a whole. Towards the end, the more direct songs merge perfectly with the tape and drone experiments. On this record, Karin Wagner and Jeffrey Alexander (Secret Eye Records/Black Forest/Black Sea) get support from an impressive list of guest musicians: Alasdair Galbraith on violin, B'eirth (In Gowan Ring) on harp, Margie Wienk (Fern Knight) on cello and Matt Everett (Bonnie 'Prince' Billy) on violin. Kleine came out around the same time as their second CD "The ghost the elf the cat and the angel", but shows a more experimental and personal side of Iditarod. Therefore, its probably the best hidden gem the band has ever put out. This CD re-release comes in a unique cardboard packaging, based on the original artwork.

PUDDLE PARADE - ORIGAMI
The Puddle Parade [thuh puhd-l puh-reyd]: 1. Imaginary children's game. While walking on the street after a summer rain, you have to make sure to step on either only puddles or no puddles at all. 2. One-girl band, bringing frail lullabies with vague melodies and distorted, fading voices a minimalistic crackling toy orchestra in slow motion. Member: ellen evers. Tools: guitar, voice, melodica alto, melodica soprano, music boxes, children's accordion, tooth brush, analog 4-track recorder, distortion pedals, loop station, xylophon, zither, dictaphone, and many more stuff. Worked with: Annelies Monseré, Tara Jane O'Neil and Machinefabriek. In one way or another. Born and raised in: eastern Germany, and with good childhood memories in mind. Moved to: Utrecht, The Netherlands about 6 years ago. Origami [or-a-g-m]\ -: 1. The Japanese art or process of folding squares of paper into representational shapes 2. The debut album of the Puddle Parade. 35 minutes of very minimal, hissy and adventurous popsongs. Influences ranging from experimental analog electronics to mid-nineties lofi. Melodic sound-sketches put together as an audio-notebook. The sounds of birds whistling translated via instruments and vocals. Pressed on CD, housed in a brown cardboard packaging, with lovely twocolour silkscreened print. Rrecommended if you like Colleen, Lau Nau, Mt. Eerie, Vollmar, Iditarod, Machinefabriek, Tara Jane O'Neil, new school lofi, analog sounds, toys, anything on Morc Records really.

SOCCER COMMITTEE - SC
This is the first record by Mariska Baars from Leiden, Holland. Since 2002, she has been writing and recording songs under the name Soccer Committee. Her first self-released cdr was very well received, which a.o. resulted in a spot on the prestigious Dwars-festival of the dutch VPRO-radio. The experience of her live-shows, in which she stripped her own songs even further, is clear on her cd-debut. Aart Schakenbos (Julie Mittens) managed to get the spaciousness of these songs on tape. The CD comes in a stylish cardboard gatefold sleeve, designed by Rutger Zuyderveldt of Machinefabriek, who also remixed the opening track Carps. This remix is available on his 2CD "Weleer". Recommended if you like Julie Doiron, Richard Youngs, early Catpower, Annelies Monseré, Anton Webern... Minimal songwriting with female vocals.

STAGG - SWF SESSION 1974
Stagg, four guys from Frankfurt, all students were one of the very best bands who recorded at the former German radio station SWF. Well trained on their instruments flute and sax, organ and keyboard, guitar, bass, and drums, Stagg recorded five tracks, all in all about 40 minutes of amazing and extraordinary music. The music is full of energy, amazing melodies and surprise twists. The sound is absolutely unique and reminds a mix of Gomorrha's playing on their second album, a more rocking version of Thrice Mice or early Thirsty Moon but also of Jethro Tull at times of 'Benefit' or 'Aqualung'. This is one of Long Hair's finest albums ever. They are very proud to release it after seven years of searching for these guys who played this unique sound! Comes with 24 page booklet with band story, a lot of photos and other notes. The radio recordings were remastered and the sound is brilliant. Don't miss this yet unknown but soon legendary sound. A MASTERPIECE!!

Repress on greenish blue/yellow swirled vinyl. Earth's Dylan Carlson teams up with improv drummer/collaborator Rogier Smal for this brilliant full length LP.

Recorded in Manchester on their previous duo tour in October 2013. All recorded in one take, this record is like being right there and listening to these two friends playing urgent music straight from the soul. Personal music for sure! The artwork is a collaboration by painter Helena Sanders (who also did the great artwork for the Carlson/Smal 7") and Simon Fowler who did the artwork for a list of bands that is far too long to mention but contains projects like Boris, Earth, Stephen O'Malley, Cafe Oto etc.

PEFKIN - MURMURATIONS
'Murmurations' sounds like a culmination of Pefkin's sound, and pretty much everything Morc Records stands for. You may recognize the bare-boned folk-influences used by e.g. Annelies Monseré or The Iditarod, the gritty experiments of a.o. Drekka and Circle Bros., the drones of Karina ESP, Edgar Wappenhalter's touch of poetry, or the sonic palette of Lichens and Jessica Bailiff: Pefkin covers and masters it all. The album (pressed on high-quality French vinyl) includes a download and comes in a screenprinted sleeve with a lyric sheet designed by Mark Burnett. This edition is limited to just over 100 copies.
