Millstone vinyl
ALLEGORY CHAPEL LTD. - without tears: noise in theory & practice - LP [Throne Heap]
94 SEK
No description available at this time.
ALTARMANG - void - LP [Autarkeia]
114 SEK
Vinyl re-issue of a cassette from last year on Hypnagoga Press. This is another of Par Bostrom's projects (a well know figure in the dark ambient realm) plus Kenneth Hansson. While i'm not accquainted with any of his other whereabouts I can easily relate to these two side-long chunks of ghostly, cyclic reel-to-reel loops and ceremonial drones. Could perhaps be lumped together with some of the groups from the Aural Hypnox label but this lacks any form of percussive elements. I can even sense an aura of early Troum here due to the sometimes recognizable effected guitars. One of the most played tapes my household last year should that say anything? In heavy b/w covers with printed innersleeve. Last copy.
AMPH - control - LP [Verlautbarung]
169 SEK
After a few years of silence Amph return with their first full length LP for Verlautbarung. As ever a slow dissonance and growing tension formed by the use and abuse of magnetic tape. Suggestive backward pulses, cumulative sound-rustle and overlapping psychedelic looping are the main ingredients. Despite the occational hissy and rumbling nature of these recordings this is a fairly fine-tuned album, slightly less chaotic with a clear flow overall, but with the stirring sense of compositional skill intact. In printed color covers with burnt detail.
ANEMONE TUBE / POST SCRIPTVM - litaniae mortuorum discordantes - LP + CD [La Esencia]
129 SEK
I first thought this to be a collaboration work but actually turns out to be a split release - starts out quite lightly with orchestral ambient and great black horn work but ebbs into more grisly industrial tinged ambience. Post Scriptvm is perhaps more multi layered, direct and with a slightly more clinical and electronic approach to the sounds. The tempo here is leisurely, samples adding the right grit and at the same time I can almost smell a loungy flair. Better than his CDs on Tesco! Pricey yes, but please consider the screened plastic outer jacket, pro printed inner and outer cover, prayer flag, CD with the same material as the LP + various inserts. Last copy.
ASTOR - lina in nida - LP [Penultimate Press]
94 SEK
Far away from the "close" and homely feel of the earlier works, this new LP comes across as a more electronic venture into a wide array of sonic extremes. Some of the tracks reminds me of the cold and sterile atmospheres of George Lucas' film THX 1138, where other flows freely between the cosmic and/or theatrical side of things. A fine, relaxed but strangely overwhelming album.
BIG CITY ORCHESTRA - drone gnomes - 10" [Substantia Innominata]
49 SEK
Two long tracks from this legendary US group, while the cover leaves a lot to be asked for this is a stunning, playful work of organic drone which opens the inner eye. First track utilizes mainly percussion, bells and voices, the second one a slower number with organ and tapes. Indeed some trippy stuff! Please email for postage rates when ordering this. Last copy.
BLADH, MARTIN - umbilical cords - CD [Segerhuva]
24 SEK
Old Segerhuva stock now available here! Postage free if ordered with 1, 2 or 4-6 vinyls.

BRUME / OUBLIER ET MOURIR - a year to live - LP [Silken Tofu]
79 SEK
Oublier Et Mourir is pretty light-weight melancholy ambient songs by Anemone Tube-member, I honestly can't speak where this Brume-material fits in his vast catalogue but full of that peculiar psychotic atmosphere. Full color covers and insert, white vinyl. Last copy.
CIRCUIT BREAKER - my descent into capital - LP [Harbinger Sound]
84 SEK
Contemporary UK group with a clear influence from early minimal synth and post punk but spiced up with guitar washes, and not always clinging onto nostalgia. I'm ordinarily not appealed but keep returning. Should be right up all Cabs and Duet Emmos fans' alley? Last copy.
CLEW OF THESEUS - the death urge - LP [Verlautbarung]
159 SEK
Two longer droning industrial tracks, sometimes akin to some bleak Archon Satani material but more monotonous and organic, without samples. Very good!
COLLIN, JON - early music - LP [Winebox Press]
74 SEK
No description available at this time.
CONTAGIOUS ORGASM & TZII - blind shadows - LP [Trips Und Traume]
69 SEK
A special mixture between later day C.O.'s wierd rhythmic and filmic soundscapes and deeper desolate ambient tunes. Modern, good sound naturally! In very nice color covers.
CONTRASTATE - no eden without annihilation - LP + CD [Tesco]
129 SEK
Hard as ever to describe, pin down or categorize the sound of Contrastate. While the earlier incarnation of the group had a slightly more melodic touch, this new work is more in line of the longer, schizophrenic works on "Todesmelodie" but soundwise now fully digital I presume, besides the occational guitar strumming/loop. Jon's quite restrained and concerned vocals in front, where applicable and fitting. Recorded live at different venues between 2012-2014, I would say all material is a logical continuation to their apocalyptic sarcasm but is anyone today here to listen? I, however, still keep my ears and mind open. Full color outer and inner sleeves, but I just can't figure out why to include both LP and CD of the same material in the same package?
CONTRASTATE - true believer / the 10/40 window - 7" [Dirter]
39 SEK
A relatively short but sweet new single by old time favorites, first side is classic Contrastate-ambient with added piano clangs, bass and singing which in some strange way makes me think of Vangelis "Bladerunner" soundtrack and Jon's repeated and lulling vocals. Second side has fragmentaric soundsnippets, which makes way for a rising dark dream. Both tracks could brood out more, but I keep flipping this so some magic is undoubtedly there. The sound is light, based on a palette unheard of in todays climate. Recommended! Last copy.
CONTRASTATE - regiment de rapaces - LP [Segerhuva]
64 SEK
This old 90's ritualistic ambient acts best material according to us - originally CD on Staalplaat's Mort Auv Vaxhes-series. Quite a lot of antagonistic vocals and overall anti-war atmospheres.
CORNER, PHILIP - battutosso / bone pulse (and other nature musics) - LP [Ricerca Sonora]
89 SEK
Live recordings from Italy 1989-1997. First track where Corner hits a lamb's thigh-bone for a rhythmic excuse and searches for room acoustics is truly retarded! Other tracks focusses on field recordings of cows' bells, stone scrapings and breathing through flutes. Last copy.
COURTIS, ALAN - los galpones - LP [Fabrica]

DEAD SHALL NOT HAVE DIED IN VAIN / DYSTHYMIA - split - 7" [Diophantine Discs]

DIETER MUH - the bjorn tapes - WHITE LP [Force Majeure]
74 SEK
No description available at this time. Last copy.
DIETER MUH - stockholm monsters - LP [Bootleg]
59 SEK
Live at Fylkingen/Stockholm 2001. Varies from darker ambient, industrial with samples and rhythms. Bent corners on all copies so a bit cheaper price.
DIETER MUH & DUQUETTE, LON MILO - the call - LP [Haemoccult]
64 SEK
DM softer sounds with DuQuette special intonation and language on side one. Longer live piece on side two, always hard to pin down soundwise but i'm enjoying this a lot!
DILLOWAY, AARON - the gag file - LP [Dais]
99 SEK
Always a treat listening through a new LP from Dilloway, this time a bit shorter works with quite a lot of variation throughout. While side A is an interesting listen overall where the heavy, overdriven looping madness more akin to his live shows cuts it, but most of the tracks on side B just don't hold the same quality i've come to expect from him. It works best for me in more traditionally song-based tracks like "Karaoke with Cal" where the rhythm, voice and whistling gives a peculiar, shady circus-tinged edge.
DRONE - a perfect blind - LP [Pomperipossa Records]
84 SEK
No description available at this time.
DRONE-MIND / MIND-DRONE VOL. 3 - various artists - LP [Drone Records]
69 SEK
Third installment of this ongoing series with four handpicked groups in the...you guessed it...the (more or less) drone-department, from Jim Haynes' tensionfilled and static, humming tones, over to Exit In Grey's emotional daydream guitar drones, further to Kshatriy's more modern (too much reverb) classic dark and a bit cosmic ambient and ending with the french Maninkari-boys' more tribal-induced trance drones. Last copy.
DRONE-MIND / MIND-DRONE VOL.1 - various artists - LP [Drone Records]
69 SEK
Drone Records first in their new LP series, with four groups (Jarl, Halo Manash, Ubeboet and B*Tong) - shows a lot of the variety in drone music!
DUNCAN, JOHN / ESPOSITO, MICHAEL / Z'EV - there must be a way across this river / the abject - LP [Fragment Factory]
69 SEK
Very subtle ambiences and processed voices from Duncan suitable for late night listening, digitally processed sounds in the organic, academic ambient vein from Z'ev.
EDWIGE - the inconsolable widow thanks all those who consoled her - CD [Segerhuva]
14 SEK
Old Segerhuva stock now available here! Postage free if ordered with any amount of 12" vinyl.

ENVENOMIST - chariots - LP [Segerhuva]

Four tracks of unsettling synthworks with an apocalyptic touch. In one of my favorite Segerhuva-covers!

No description available at this time. Last copy.
GUNK - bird / less - 12" [Self released]
79 SEK
Relatively new finnish four-piece group, with self released and very limited (100 copies) twelve-inch, offering another take on pure loud junk metal noisy resonance and gong-muzak. Sounds largely improvised to these ears, with great layering and feel also for quietness to satisfying effect. Thirty minutes at 45 RPM, in b/w discosleeves plus two large inserts.
HATERS, THE / HUTCHINSON, HAL - xylowave 2010 / amplifaction II - LP [Aufabwegen]
84 SEK
No description available at this time. Last copy.
HELLVETE - sint-denijs - LP [Blackest Rainbow]
84 SEK
More of a uplifting, long stretched-out Nangijala-vibe to this album than the earlier more darker ritualistic, shorter poems. Streamlined, minimalistic and droning overlapped, sustained organ tones and some additional instruments is the order for the day. Factorymade b/w covers and heavy vinyl.
HELM - the hollow organ - 12" [Pan]

ILTA HAMARA - saivo - LP [Sloowax]
94 SEK
No description available at this time.
IN CAMERA - rumours - LP [Dom Bartwuchs]
79 SEK
LP-re-issue of material from a 2006 VPRO radio session that originally came with some copies of the "Open air" CD on Robot Records. Despite the Fleetwood Mac reference, very much akin to some of Mirror's earlier material here, which means very static, dark drone, in a good way. Last copy.
INCAPACITANTS - el shanbara therminosis - CD [Segerhuva]
29 SEK
Old Segerhuva stock now available here! Postage free if ordered with 1, 2 or 4-6 vinyls.
INCAPACITANTS / SEWER ELECTION - mental derivatives / shining obsession - 12" [Segerhuva]
49 SEK
Was originally intended as a 10" but was impossible to cut due extreme frequencies. Incapacitants in overloaded, chaotic mode and Sewer Election with wallish harsh noise.
IRM - indications of nigredo - 12" [Segerhuva]
49 SEK
Monotone and almost catchy, long, massive drone with unforgettable vocals on side one, side two more subdued in style and more focus on atmosphere. Damn great!
JARL - parallel / collapsing - CD [Segerhuva]
29 SEK
Old Segerhuva stock now available here! Postage free if ordered with 1, 2 or 4-6 vinyls.
KALLABRIS - red square - LP [Inselkind-Schalltraeger]
74 SEK
New LP from this german group which made a few outstanding records in the late 80' / early 90's, became a bit obsolete but returned in new form - not much of the former rough, analog sound is left but despair not! There's enough of catchy and bizarre audio here anyway, partly reminding of a less melancholic Novy Svet in their loungy, electronic mode. Other tracks slightly related to their earlier industrial roots but always with a twist, where I get a strange Lynch-vice. I feel I'm going to play this album lot and I think you should give it a chance. Come on, don't be so narrow-minded. Thick vinyl in screened, minimal packaging.
KALLABRIS - music for very simple objects - 10" [Substantia Innominata]
49 SEK
Short sequences of digitally manipulated field recordings and objects. Not really drone per se, and far away from their early works, but works pretty well in this format, length and also the steady flow of new impressions. One for the sound-fanatics. Please inquire through email regarding postage when ordering this title.
KALLABRIS & LEPENIK - on what there is - LP [God Records]

KIRKEGAARD, JACOB - 40 days of silence - LP [Von Archives]
84 SEK
Appearently a soundtrack to an Uzbek movie, file this under glacial ambience, six cuts with quite different character. A lot of reverb throughout but always staying on the right track, some tracks more pure darker sub bass drone in the vein of Thomas Koner, others more harmonic and desolate. Last copy.
KOLLAPS - sibling lovers - LP [Silken Tofu / Trait]

84 SEK
No description available at this time.
LAST DOMINION LOST - abomination of desolation - LP [The Epicurean / La Esencia]
94 SEK
So is this a cover album of the old Morbid Angel classic? Let's not get too excited now. Mad, anguished screams coupled with metallic screech and psychotic synthwork with ritualistic tendencies - I mentioned elsewhere that Last Dominion Lost could be the modern remnant of SPK, though less focus on rhythm? Some traditionalist listeners may be offended by the use of digital effects prevalent and the whole hallucinatory aura sometimes borders to the humourous but somehow stands firmly on its own without the concern of others. A magical mystery tour to indulge in. Nice cover with printed innersleeve. Last copy.
LAST DOMINION LOST - snowdrops from a curate's garden - LP [The Epicurean]
89 SEK
A live recording from 2011 with all unreleased tracks, quite an original brand of industrial music rarely heard today with slow rhythms, metallic percussion and twisted, hypnotic electronics. Up and down a bit qualitywise, but the better tracks more than makes up for it. Packaged in two doublesided LP-sized papers, with postcard. Last copy.
LAST DOMINION LOST - towers of silence - LP [The Epicurean / Silken Tofu]
84 SEK
No description available at this time. Last copy.
LUMINE - all the unnamed - LP [La Scie Doree]
89 SEK
Another project from the ever-productive Timo Van Luijk, this time together with Graham Stewart. Six individual tracks (titled after what i'm guessing is an inspiring person for that particular track?) in the slow and introvert not-so-electronic ambient realm with a big, black splash of archaic academic tar, far from the elaborate and romantic excursions of Elodie for example. A mighty fine work which comes highly recommended - as always, close listening is most definately required here as his works tend to lose its magic when in the background. Last copy.
LUSTMORD - things that were - DCD [Infinite Fog]
74 SEK
No description available at this time. Postage as two CDs! Last copy.
MAEROR TRI - myein - CD [Infinite Fog]
49 SEK
We usually don't stock CDs but we make an exception for this excellent re-issue of one of my absolute favourite recordings in the ambient guitar drone genre originally released in 1995 - what gets me up is the primitive nature, both production- and soundwise, of it all - totally devoid of what makes modern dark ambient so extremely bland to these ears. Washes of both delicate and dream-infused harmonics in both soft and harsher territories soothes this brain. If you really want to transcend this world and begin to scrape the layers of your mind, this is for you. In small digibook packaging. Last copy.
MANNION, JOHN - slice through or/in glassmetal - LP [Hanson Records]
74 SEK
Abstract venture into physical noise and sound art with focus on textures, lows and climaxes.
MEYERS, JUSTIN - resonating upon harmonic ground - ONE-SIDED LP [Second Sleep]
64 SEK
Extremely sparse and academic (in a good sense) in terms of sound, made from analog synth and field recordings. Definately need high volume to work! Last copy.
MNEM - engrama - LP [Segerhuva]
59 SEK
Re-issue of the very limited 10" on Kaos Kontrol + unreleased long bonus track. Quite calm in nature but very intense organic and hypnotic industrial drone.
MOLJEBKA PVLSE - tamon - CD [Segerhuva]
24 SEK
Old Segerhuva stock now available here! Postage free if ordered with 1, 2 or 4-6 vinyls.
MS30 - t.i.a. - 2 X MLP [Silken Tofu]
99 SEK
Has been compared to some old Panasonic-material (some say Muslimgauze more ambient material meets Anenzephalia without vocals), minimal electronics made from one MS10 and one MS20 synth naturally! One of this years very good newcomers for me personally. All sidelong tracks with impressive soundquality, from bleeps to slow upbuilding rhythmic material. Last copy.

NIEDOWIERZANIE - attendre - LP [Reue Um Reue]
74 SEK
Much appreciated and more accessible return of this frenchman, very structured, "modern" and exotic work ranging from experimental pieces to more up-tempo darker poplike vocal-less tracks with emphasis on the latter. Absolutely recommended work in gorgeous color covers.
NO INTENTION - good intentions / material dilemma - 7" [I Dischi Del Barone]
34 SEK
Second release on this new seven-inch label, mangled-sound-art-poetry with Allen from Good Area. White cover with attached postcard, plus insert. Postage as 2 tapes, no additional postage needed when ordering 1, 3 or 5-6 vinyls at the same time.
NOVY SVET - mono - C40 [Reue Um Reue]
59 SEK
Ten new tracks, mostly based around monotonous effected piano chords and simple beats in the background, plus spanish vocals. If you didn't like NS before you'll probably hate this, if you're a follower like me it's simply a must. In folded brad pack covers. Postage free if ordered with any 12" vinyl.
NOVY SVET - doce - LP [Kill Shaman]
79 SEK
A collection of twelve songs from different albums and compilations, some unreleased. A good introduction to this now more or less defunct group, which definitely shows their diversity.
NOVY SVET / GERMAN ARMY - s/t - 7" [Tourette]
39 SEK
New NS track from 2014, surprisingly uplifting modern sound with Weber's unmistakable voice. GA does three short tracks of great dark and experimental 80s-tinged electro. Email for postage rates!
OCHU - unproduktiw - MLP [Verlautbarung]
159 SEK
An accumulation of ordinary life - of grinding, of static apathy and deliberate mutism. Links between an institutionalized existence and the weight of invisible responsibility. Succumbing to the surrounding monotony. Printed b/w covers, including riso insert.
OCHU - tvarsnitt - C38 [Verlautbarung]
69 SEK
Tape version of the long sold out LP. First full length work from this Swedish project, only seven years since the last tape. Long gone is the rotten noisy industrial of old, this is more into rougher delirious shriveled loops from found sounds and field recordings, parts reminds of some of Small Cruel Partys works but perhaps with a more narrative perspective. Also includes a live ritualistic metal scrape improvisation and electronics with two additional members. Risograph printed covers. Strong recommendation. Postage for the tape is free when ordered with 1, 2 or 4-6 vinyls.
ONDE - purple - LP [Ondemusic]
84 SEK
Former members from Noise-Makers Fifes doing quite musical drone, structured but flowing with kraut-feel. In gatefold covers. Back in stock! Last copy.
OPERA MORT - film works - LP [B.A.A.D.M.]
94 SEK
As specified, music intended as alternate (?) soundtracks for films - and may I add a tad bit away from the labels earlier output? The sound of these works is bordering on IDM, having deleted the Dance elements for good then so to speak... Left is a upbuilding whirlwind of both micro and massive synthesizer sound complete with abrupt cuts plus occationally irrational, somewhat surreal and treated silent vocals. I am in parts reminded of the "love machine" in Jodorowsky's Holy Mountain by the ways these bleeps intensify and gets almost out of control. Something playful to taste!
ORIGAMI REPLIKA - kommerz: merzbow in the hands of origami replika - CD [Segerhuva]
24 SEK
Old Segerhuva stock now available here! Postage free if ordered with 1, 2 or 4-6 vinyls.
PRIMORJE - body text - 12" [Second Sleep]
94 SEK
Matteo Castro's new project with Giovanni Donadini from Ottaven, both working with tape recorders, playing with tempo and mechanized loops. Not the dustiness often coupled to tape works but actually quite clear sounding. This is very active music, with hints both to both traditional tape works and fucked up idm techno, without any obvious rhythms. Color cover. Last copy.
REGIM - stabbed by the blind - LP [Segerhuva]
59 SEK
The albanian beasts last album of rough, pretty static power electronic noise with great vocals. Down with the police-state!
RITSCH, WINFRIED - woodscratcher - PIC LP [God Records]
89 SEK
Pure sounds from a amplified wood scratcher machine, a must-hear minimalist recording!

39 SEK
Old Segerhuva stock now available here! Postage free if ordered with 1, 2 or 4-6 vinyls.
RLW - funeral parties - LP [Musica Moderna]
84 SEK
I wrote somewhere else this sounds like early Current 93 a la "Imperium" totally re-messed by an all-digital Nurse With Wound, happy-go-lucky on fast editing techniques. The leisure-tempo, occationally interrupted by digital glitches and microsounds of increased/decreased volume, does not really make me think of traditional funeral music (whatever that is?) but makes a contradictory and humourous aura surround the pieces. A fascinating record I (oddly enough) return to. Minimal artwork.
SCAR CROWE - s/t - C20 [Self Abuse]
49 SEK

SCHAKALENS BROR - omelette of disease - LP [Forlag For Fri Musik]
84 SEK
Very limited vinyl from Gothenburgs fucked-up version of Beck - mangled electric guitar is on the menu for today! Totally feedback-drenched excess in audial masturbation and enough blues licks for an entire decade. Some would say this is prime example of noise mockery (and that someone probably living under "noise is NOT fun"-banner) but all who can't get enough of Diesel Guitar and/or japanese easy going live noise will rejoice. In pasted-on white cardboard covers. Last copy.
SEATTLE PHONOGRAPHERS UNION - building 27 WNP-5 - LP [Prefecture Music]
89 SEK
I'm trying hard not to compare this to the Curfew Recordings of old, but really, this is actually better. Improvisations with a library of unedited field recordings in two separate large spaces for full reverberation effect. In gatefold color cover with pictures from the recording sites plus printed innersleeve. Very much recommended!

SHIFT - ruminations - 10" [Unrest]

TESTICLE HAZARD / GOLDEN SERENADES - morning star / evening fix - LP [Segerhuva]
59 SEK
Full throttle and moving harsh destruction from TH and slower, more monotone organic noise akin to some earlier TNB works from GS.
THEOLOGIAN & VOMIT ARSONIST, THE - nature is satans church - DLP [Cipher Productions]
124 SEK
Vinyl issue of a CD-R from 2012 (including extra tracks) and appearently inspired by Lars Von Triers film "Antichrist", something that is also visible when viewing through the albums fold out cover art. So, how does the music correspond to the theme and cover? I don't remember any music from the film but I am enjoying these industrial ambiental tracks, early in with a slight orchestral touch but quickling setting into BDN "Necrose Evangelicum"'s airy, chilling drone-domain. Deep, buried electronics with an occult flair, while upholding tension and a restrained, solid character. A very nice surprise as I for some strange reason didn't have any high expectations. Last copy.

TOBACCONISTS, THE - a secret place - LP [A Giant Fern / Fabrica]
79 SEK
Scott Foust, Frans De Waard and Mike Popovich collaboration project, said to be influenced by Dome this time and somewhat incorporates both playfulness, gloom and skew. Synthesizer swirl, discrete bass lines and percussive elements dominates the first side, whereas the other one is less about pop-approach and clear structure, feels more improvised. I'm thinking one should see the front cover in a loaded context, on a beach somewhere all down and out... I could definitely smoke a fag to this in a live environment! Sexy transparent, green vinyl.
TOY BIZARRE / EMERGE - s/t - LP [Attenuation Circuit]
89 SEK
Kind of a extended sister-follow-up to the Stein-compilation released earlier on Verlautbarung, two fellow Drone Records artists treating field recordings inside some French mines. Full of crunchy blast and concrete sounds, partly quite lightless subterranean cavern-drone. Always busy, highly engaging stuff - tip! Last copy.
TREPANERINGSRITUALEN / BODY CARGO - s/t - LP [Autarkeia]
109 SEK
Newly released split vinyl with TRP in a more sombre-syrupy, archaic mode with less vocal treats but rest assured, still digging deep in the occult mud. Actually at times not too far from the atmospheres invoked on the Etant Donnes and Michael Gira collaboration mentioned elsewhere in this list. I have not encountered BC before so I can't speak for how this material compares with the rest but this is heavily layered industrial and despite being labelled "dirty and lo-fi", to me quite clean sounding with heavily processed vocals and samples. Rather pricey yes, don't blame me - however heavy, clear vinyl in pro-printed thick brown cardboard sleeves.
TUSEN AR UNDER JORD - sandhavens genklang - LP [Verlautbarung]
179 SEK
Despite the perhaps obvious nod and reference to some of Muslimgauze's more atmospheric excursions this new work of Tusen Ar Under Jord holds a different character, like the one of a lone wandering explorer setting up his recording equipment a little wherever necessary. The grainy picture is still at hand but focus has turned to spiritual elevation instead of grey introspection. Tablas churn, smokescreens come and go, as the carpets are rolled out on the shifting sands. Total recommendation! In thick disco sleeve with contemporary packaging.

VAN LUIJK, TIMO & VANDERSTRAETEN, KRIS - costa del luna - LP [La Scie Doree]
79 SEK
Could well be 90's NWW but without the funny elements. Just a improvised and slow moving continuation of quiet sounds. In extremely nice double side (!) printed covers. Last copy.

VARROPAS - s/t - LP [Ikuisuus / Hyster Tapes]
74 SEK
I'm not really acquainted with the Finnish guitar/improv/lofi dronescene but this LP was a welcome surprise. Lots of cheap synth loops and treated guitars here with additional rhytmic clangs and noises. A thorough krauty (god, I hate that term), calm and hypnotic feel and suitable for late night listening. Last copy.
VERTONEN - fait a la machine - PIC LP [CIP / Ratskin]
84 SEK
This is an entirely different story than the LP below - here we have Mr. Edwards in full Vivenza-mode, all recordings of real machinery and hard to tell if they are loops of sound or just the elegance of monotony, lots of loud clatter masterly mixed for that submissive effect. Just the right length on the eight tracks on the LP. NO CD-Rs with these, sorry! RESTOCK. Last copy.
VERTONEN - 11° 22.4'N 142° 35.5' / HACE/26,250'E - LP [CIP / Misanthropic Agenda]
149 SEK
One of the highlights of 2013 so far for sure! A strong thematic album working around two extreme locations on earth. Two long tracks of very impressive editing and timing, stemming mostly from a Polivoks synthesizer this LP conjures a frightening experience in deep, evolving industrial-tinged drone. Delicious tip-on jackets with special triangular insert. Restock!
VERTONEN / 16 BITCH PILE-UP - s/t - LP [What We Do Is Secret]
69 SEK
Managed to snag some copies of this split LP - Vertonen is here in a varied mood between synth + effect explorations and half darker dronings, 16 Bitch Pile-Up presents a live recording from 2007 with one long track of quite dark experimental cut-up murk evolving more into noisy territories and pulse. Last copy.
VOGEL, MICHEL & CORNER, PHILIP & NEVILLE, PHOEBE - musiques de ailes / winged music - LP [Ricerca Sonora]
89 SEK
Satisfying live recordings from Paris in 1999. Large focus on small steel bell sounds and to a lesser degree gongs which flows out in room resonance. Packaged in color covers including two inserts.
VOICE OF EYE - anthology one: 1989-91 - DLP [Vinyl On Demand]
124 SEK
Early material from out-of-print tapes. Rougher in nature, and you can actually hear traces of TG in some places and overall not the same focus on reverb as later works. Postage - count as 2 LPs. Last copy.
VOLTIGEURS - carrion - LP [Second Layer]
59 SEK
New Skullflower side-project. I can't really tell what separates this from the mothermonicker and frankly this motionless material does not give me much at all. On nice golden vinyl anyway!
WORTH - blinder - LP [Prose Nagge]
89 SEK
A healthy restock of this much applauded and rough, swinging harsh noise LP formerly from Other Peoples Children and Weak Sisters. In a full color cover which resembles a less unsightly take on..."Reek of putrefaction"? One of the truly great LPs from last year, 2017. With insert. Last copy.
YOUR REALITY IS BROKEN - various artists - LP [Black Rose Recordings]
99 SEK
Six groups (Band Of Pain, Genocide Organ, RLW, Troum, Etat D'Urgence and Contrastate) covering or re-building tracks of Contrastate - have yet to indulge musically but very happy to see people still pushing out records with such wide representation as present here. Color cover with printed inner sleeve + white vinyl! Last copy.
