Millstone vinyl
AF URSIN - itinera - LP [La Scie Doree]
125 SEK
Described as Van Luijks first all electronic album - where earlier records felt close this one drifts off into thin air, both in sound and vision. Maybe a too obvious comparison but I can't help to think on Tangerine Dreams earlier spacey movements where experimentation was central and melodies not. A subtle, abstract but solemnly calculated effort which demands several, deep listens. One of the real treats of 2017, no doubt. Eyewatering, easy to sink into packaging plus clear vinyl.
AF URSIN - de overkant - LP [La Scie Doree]
125 SEK
Re-edition in new sleeve and vinyl cut. A collection of tracks recorded between 2009-2014. Back to more shorter song-like ones, in his usual slow atmospheric and spectacular mode, some with a krauty touch and others quietly cinematic. A truly rewarding listen! Highest recommendation! Last copy.
ALLEGORY CHAPEL LTD. - without tears: noise in theory & practice - LP [Throne Heap]
132 SEK
No description available at this time.
ALTARMANG - void - LP [Autarkeia]
160 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]
118 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.
AMPH / ARV & MILJO - nordiska ljud nr. 1 - LP [Jartecknet]
104 SEK
Very impressive output from Amph once again, this time perhaps a bit more emphasis on lesser sounds and rather stripped, though still conveying that special Amph multi-facetted style, Arv & Miljo offers a hypnotic piece dedicated to the sounds of car motor engines and what comes out of it, completely compelling stuff, derived from synth and field recordings. In folded color covers, with large insert. Last copy.
ANEMONE TUBE / POST SCRIPTVM - litaniae mortuorum discordantes - LP + CD [La Esencia]
181 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.
ASTOR - lina in nida - LP [Penultimate Press]
132 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.
B*TONG - prostration before infinity - LP [Silken Tofu]
118 SEK
Although I find the term "experimental" slightly bland these days, it should be the most fitting desciption here. And why should you be interested then? Well, its just a nice calculated and layered album that consists both of microsounds, elements of drone and the use of (often treated) samples. Not far away from some of Dieter Muh's work, albeit utilizing a more digital soundworld. Clear and colored smoky vinyl in b/w covers. Last copy.
BIG CITY ORCHESTRA - drone gnomes - 10" [Substantia Innominata]
69 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.
BLADH, MARTIN - umbilical cords - CD [Segerhuva]
34 SEK
Old Segerhuva stock now available here! Postage free if ordered with 1, 2 or 4-7 vinyls.
BLOD - red light companion - 3LP-BOX [Segerhuva]
209 SEK
Vinyl re-issue mainly of hard to get tapes and compilation tracks in hard color printed box with inserts. Sex noise. Postage - count as 3 LPs.
BLOD - my beloved daughters - CD [Segerhuva]
34 SEK
Old Segerhuva stock now available here! Postage free if ordered with 1, 2 or 4-7 vinyls.
BLOOD OV THEE CHRIST - master control - CD [Segerhuva]
41 SEK
Old Segerhuva stock now available here! Postage free if ordered with 1, 2 or 4-7 vinyls. The CD will be sent without jewelcase!
BRUITAL ORGASME - experiment in functional background music - LP [Silken Tofu]
118 SEK
Pure electro-acoustic sounds over field recordings and turntablism to blistering noise, parts reminded me of some of Dave Phillips works. Very nicely structured flow of unease, coupled with a slight humourous edge. One of 2015's good finds. This comes highly recommended! In silk screened pvc sleeves. Last copy.
BRUME / OUBLIER ET MOURIR - a year to live - LP [Silken Tofu]
111 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.
BRANN NER HELA SKITEN - various artists - LP [Forlag For Fri Musik]
118 SEK
Compilation of what the Gothburg-crew is up to these days - minus any of the power electronic acts. Mostly between the depressive, heterogeneous bedroom-guitar / modern Trad, Gras och Stenar-lo-fi-pop and harsher industrial/noise-jingles with a larger emphasis on the former - perhaps a strange mixture but the short tracks, interludes and general dizziness makes up for a quite engaging listen. White pasted-on covers with A3-poster that smells strongly of cheap toilet air refreshener. Last copy.
BURIAL HEX / IRON FIST OF THE SUN - act aeon / grown under english ice - LP [Cold Spring]
90 SEK
BH with ritualistic industrial/ambient and sporadic vocal parts. IFOTS clean sounding power electronics.
CHALK, ANDREW - baroque steps - LP [Faraway Press]
146 SEK
One long track spanning over two album sides of delicate electronic bridges and floating, starlit guitars, ebbing and flowing into each other. Almost like they were recorded separately and then interlinked - they weave a strange, smooth but still difficult tapestry with short themes recurring throughout. As always it's a treat packaging-wise and visually from Faraway Press with thick, handmade tip-on sleeves, obi-strip and large unfoldable insert accentuating the romatic air of these recordings. Last copy.
CHALK, ANDREW - ghosts of nakhodka - LP [Faraway Press]
125 SEK
Same title as another, earlier work but this is entirely new tracks. Again, shorter interludes, this time made on monophonic synthesizer alone, ranging from a little cosmic to very down-to-earth. A pleasant surprise! Includes insert and postcard set. Last copy.
CHALK, ANDREW & SCOTT, TOM JAMES - wild flowers - LP [Skire]
118 SEK
Shimmering, delicate piano amidst background floating and gentle strings of a foggy morning, music for the first minutes of the day, heavy on nature romanticist themes and much in line with Andrew's later output. Full color cover.
CIRCUIT BREAKER - my descent into capital - LP [Harbinger Sound]
118 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]
97 SEK
Two longer droning industrial tracks, sometimes akin to some bleak Archon Satani material but more monotonous and organic, without samples. Very good!
CLOAMA - municipality of marionettes - LP [Freak Animal]
104 SEK
Innovative power electronics from Finland without real clichees. In screened white covers. Last copy.
COIL - backwards - DLP [Cold Spring]
125 SEK
No description available at this time. Last copy.
COIL, NEW BLOCKADERS, THE & VORTEX CAMPAIGN - the melancholy mad tenant - DLP [Infinite Fog]
202 SEK
No description available at this time.
COLLIN, JON - early music - LP [Winebox Press]
104 SEK
No description available at this time.
CONTAGIOUS ORGASM & TZII - blind shadows - LP [Trips Und Traume]
97 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]
181 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]
55 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!
CONTRASTATE - regiment de rapaces - LP [Segerhuva]
90 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]
125 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]
139 SEK
No description available at this time.
CROENE, FREDERIC & VAN LUIJK, TIMO - voile au vent - LP [La Scie Doree]
111 SEK
Fusion of darker academic pianowork and more musical krauty, organic elements. Should work great to some old silent experimental horror movie. Back in stock. Last copy.
DEAD SHALL NOT HAVE DIED IN VAIN / DYSTHYMIA - split - 7" [Diophantine Discs]
9 SEK
No description available at this time. Postage as 2 tapes, no additional postage needed when ordering 1, 2 or 4-6 vinyls at the same time.
DEBT OF NATURE - order: spoil the entire state - LP [Harbinger Sound]
111 SEK
A set of mid-80's archival live recordings from this Los Angeles-pack of known names based around the LAFMS scene. Relatively short pieces of spontaneous both noisy and non-noisy, improvised sounds derived from tapes, circuit-bent gear and random found sounds. I'm not ordinarily fond of live recordings most often due to thin and flat sound but I think it works great here. Good 80's feel also on the cover, if you want I can try and make it worn out and you can't tell if its from 2013 or 1993. Last copy.
DE FABRIEK - made in spain - LP [Burka For Everybody]
139 SEK
Hot and spicy re-issue of this old classic industrial gem, originally released on Discos Esplendor Geometrico in 1987. Oh, what nasty beast we have here! Almost funky, sturdy use of rhythms with powerful washes of electronic disturbance, though not without a sense of melody. Extensive use of flanger, mostly on the rhythmic parts, but also elsewhere - I sense a straight line from this to certain Ant-Zen / Hands groups but this works MUCH better. Damn good! In printed covers with two A4 inserts.
DE FABRIEK - schafttijdssamba - LP [Burka For Everybody]
139 SEK
No description available at this time.
DICKSSON, G. / BLODVITE - nordiska ljud nr. 2 - LP [Jartecknet]
132 SEK
Very limited split LP between Gustaf Dicksson's unnerving verbal (in swedish) tape loop collages which falls somewhere between En Halvkokt I Folie's silliness and Current 93's early incantations without the obvious religious overtones. Blodvite here does a rather bleak and sordid drone track mostly based around some string instrument, continuing on the minimal path. In folded covers, plus two inserts.
DIETER MUH - the bjorn tapes - WHITE LP [Force Majeure]
104 SEK
No description available at this time.
DIETER MUH - heterodoxie - LP (Verlautbarung)
34 SEK
Found five copies of this long sold out LP - all have small visual blemishes to the vinyl surface from the pressing but after testing it doesn't seem to be hearable, but lowered the price nonetheless! Surprising first track with rhythm loop and balalaika, album eventually evolves into thicker structures with lots of detail. Most impressive and actually quite relaxed but focused darker industrial and drones in full color special sleeves. Tip!
DIETER MUH - stockholm monsters - LP [Bootleg]
83 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]
90 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 - switches - LP [Cejero]
139 SEK
No description available at this time.
DILLOWAY, AARON - the gag file - LP [Dais]
139 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]
118 SEK
No description available at this time.
DRONE-MIND / MIND-DRONE VOL. 3 - various artists - LP [Drone Records]
97 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.
DRONE-MIND / MIND-DRONE VOL.1 - various artists - LP [Drone Records]
97 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 - riot - LP [Ideal Recordings]
104 SEK
Re-recorded and re-mixed version of one of Duncan's earlier escapades from 1984, none of that mass produced bass level mastering extremes though, plenty of mid range shortwave static, interference and blunt, restrained mayhem in the way that just isn't made anymore. Not really chaotic or pure noise but a good flow of icy snippets, metallic drone and exuberant disturbance. Satisfactory product, especially the a-side. New cover including descriptive insert.
DUNCAN, JOHN / ESPOSITO, MICHAEL / Z'EV - there must be a way across this river / the abject - LP [Fragment Factory]
97 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.
DUPLANT, BRUNO - fictions - LP [Aussenraum]
97 SEK
No description available at this time. Last copy.
EBOLA DISCO / ROPE SOCIETY - flies for friends - LP [Tesco]
125 SEK
A pairing of two Australian power electronics groups, Ebola Disco offers one long track of free form synth violence and indecipherable vocals, while Rope Society use synth as background but also uses feedback and metal junk to great effect. Both groups pretty far away from the standard much structured German style for example. Last copy.
EDWIGE - the inconsolable widow thanks all those who consoled her - CD [Segerhuva]
20 SEK
Old Segerhuva stock now available here! Postage free if ordered with any amount of 12" vinyl.
ELODIE - la lumiere parfumee - LP [Faraway Press]
146 SEK
May be Elodie's "Jeph Jerman"-album, got the same skritchety-scratchety flair overall, but in hi-fi mode, naturally. Don't get me wrong here, this IS a musical and sentimental album in a way Jerman would never do but the gongs, background rustling etc and does compliment the fluffy piano bits with a natural timbre. An occational malaise weighs up the lighter parts and it is a quite undemanding listen in a way some of the "mid"-period Elodie albums are not. As always it's a treat packaging-wise and visually from Faraway Press with thick, handmade tip-on and debossed sleeves, obi-strip and large unfoldable insert, more or less a replica of the CD-version. Last copy.
ELODIE - la porte ouverte - LP [Faraway Press]
125 SEK
Another year, another Elodie... The Chalk & Van Luijk duo (though here aided by Tom James Scott - on piano I presume?) has been very productive the last years. Here we have eight shorter, shimmering delights of ambient jazz transcending time and space but not really dreamlike, more direct and distinct than earlier output. I have yet to discover an album where the front cover fits the music so well. While there's the occational disharmony and cloudy moments, the overall feel is one of absolute tranquility and a mental-pictorial stream to boot... Music for day time listening. Comes very much recommended.
ELODIE - grisailles - LP [La Scie Doree]
244 SEK
I've had a hard time digesting the path Elodie has mapped out on their last recordings as I think were are too directionless, but on this latest work the five pieces engraved puts the clarinet, flute and whispered voices a bit more in the forefront with a slight minimal result. Best is the magnificent last and long track which evokes the same dreamy, countryside flair that parts of the Ralf & Florian LP contains. Packaged in a handmade, thick structured sleeve with artprint attached to the front, hence the price. Last copy.
ELODIE - le manteau d'etoiles - LP [Faraway Press]
125 SEK
No description available at this time.
ELODIE - miniatures persanes - LP [La Scie Doree]
118 SEK
Another fullength work dedicated to ancient illustration, two long enigmatic tracks full of interfering wind instruments and synths into a rich and detailed psychedelic mesh with a slight eastern tinge. The flip offering more straight sound with additional bass and guitar. Classy presentation as always from the La Scie Doree label.
ELODIE - traces ephemeres - LP [La Scie Doree]
118 SEK
Collaboration project between Andrew Chalk and Timo Van Luijk. Short snippets of delicate real instrumentation in form of guitar, bass, flutes, percussion and synth with a slight jazzy flavour overall. Alters between dreamlike mellowness and more concrete group recordings. Not really like anything I have heard before actually! Last copy.
ENKLAV - 2 - LP [Jartecknet]
104 SEK
Continuing in the same vein as the first LP on Wendy. It's all about rough tape loops here, mate! Stay away if you don't like monotony. In very minimalistic b/w covers.
ENTRE VIFS - the harvest - C32 [Cipher Productions]

ETANT DONNES - aurore - LP [Penultimate Press]
132 SEK
Another name I did not look into in the 90's besides their splendid collaboration work with Michael Gira - here comes a welcome vinyl re-issue of the first part of a trilogy based around the use of field recordings and whispered French vocals. The intimate tone and surprising mixing makes this album a truly unsettling work worthy of your full attention! A ghastly test of the endurance. Both outer and inner sleeves in color.

EVIL MOISTURE - goo - LP [Blossoming Noise]
90 SEK
More cut-up madness from Mr. Bolus, not much harsh noise in sight here, mostly an endless stream of slightly playful, chopped up noises and a lot of starts/stops. However, the pacing is quite calm and not very layered so it's easy to pay attention. Last copy.

G*PARK - gour - LP [Tochnit Aleph]
111 SEK
So what is so enticing about Marc Zeier's sound world? Could be the razor sharp editing, or the strange occurence of contrasting elements which still holds attention all the way through? One long composition of eclectic electro acoustics, made up from both everyday sounds and tiny snippets of close encounters with objects and animals. Collage for the chosen few - comes highly recommended. Cut at 45 rpm for highest fidelity!
GENDREAU, MICHAEL / LOPEZ, FRANCISCO - drowning / untitled #185 - LP [CIP]
97 SEK
Two pieces made from the glory of vinyl crackle, static and run out grooves, greatly textured complete with motor hummings and mic'ed driving belts. High volume required for full effect. In black disco-sleeves and insert. Last copy.
GRIM - orgasm - LP [Tesco]
146 SEK
Despite a quite hideous up-beat track on face one, this new offering from Japan's Grim is a DIFFERENT listen, bordering between traditional rhythmic industrial music and a more melodic outlook, with the special use of vocals. Up and down in quality but keeping my ear open throughout despite the "cult"-yapping hordes heed-calls. WHITE vinyl version. Last copy.

GUNK - bird / less - 12" [Self released]
111 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.
GUSTAFSSON, MATTIAS - nattmusik - LP [B.A.A.D.M.]
125 SEK
Altar Of Flies head honcho Gustafsson's first LP under his own name and actually not far away from his other output. Murmuring collages of slow piano loops and noisy field recordings, stripped down like a William Basinski gone industrial - the same turbidity and reset tone. Overdriven grey feedback and rubbery guitar strums which for some reason bring C93's "Soft black stars" to mind but with a suffocating undertone. Tracks not sinking into total dronemode. Stereo listening recommended, not thru headphones.

HEINZ HOPF - ultra primitiv - C38 [Team Boro Tapes]

Tape version of the now sold out LP! Spiced up harsh noise straight outta Gamlestaden! Eight tracks with perfect lengths and own identity. Dense and powerful action, rough and ready to chew. Instant happy listening. Last copy.
HELLVETE - sint-denijs - LP [Blackest Rainbow]
118 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.

HANDER SOM VARDAR - aristokrat - LP [Jartecknet]
118 SEK
First fullength vinyl from this Stockholm aficionado. Six tracks where I sense different styles and moods, mostly rooted in the Swedish lo-fi tapeloop tradition though. I tend to think the more rumbling, layered industrial-tinged songs works best, whereas some of the other synth-based ones just seems to lack some extra punch and javlaranamma. Cover in usual Jartecknet minimal style with Mr. Handsome on the front.

IN CAMERA - frampton comes alive - LP [La Scie Doree]
111 SEK
Christoph Heemann and Timo Van Luijk duo. Mainly new work presented here, which feels more 70's overall in terms of sound and stoned atmosphere, involving more different kinds of sources as flute and impeccable field recordings beneath. Still in a way a bit more disharmonic than earlier stuff! Back in stock. Last copy.

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]

INCAPACITANTS - tight - LP [Dogma Chase]
153 SEK
Absolutely massive and muddy destruction in the first part of side one, pretty weak digital experimental tracks and good long live track on side b. In luxury silkscreened covers and booklet with pictures and texts. Last copy.
INCAPACITANTS / SEWER ELECTION - mental derivatives / shining obsession - 12" [Segerhuva]
69 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.
INTROVERTED FORMULA - various artists - DLP [Jartecknet]
167 SEK
One side each of Altar Of Flies, Blodvite, Elisha Morningstar and Sewer Election collaborating with Anders Dahl. Overall lots of tape manipulation and field recordings to explore. AOF on a dark and twisted route, Blodvite industrial interference loops, EM lofi reel-to-reel loops and SE w/ AD drones with fitting field recordings. In usual Jartecknet minimal outer sleeve, with two large doublesided inserts, one for each side of the set.
IRGUN Z'WAI LEUMI - klirrfaktor - LP [Verlautbarung]
97 SEK
First release on the German Verlautbarung label. One looong track of slow but always evolving bleak feedbackbased industrial. Best album of 2008!
IRM - indications of nigredo - 12" [Segerhuva]
69 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!
ISOMER - three kestrels - LP [Tesco]
139 SEK
Long time Tesco collaborator, previously into darker ambient structures, this time into harsher territory, not unlike Genocide Organ period around "Mind control" or Ex.Order. Still, some of the tracks featured does have a different edge most based on bleaker synth drones and vocals. In classy colored reverse board covers. Last copy.
JACKMAN, VIKKI & CHALK, ANDREW & REBILLY, JEAN-NOEL - a paper doll's whisper of spring - LP [Faraway Press]
125 SEK
While relying a bit too much on the floating synthesizer sounds for my personal taste, this new album by the Faraway Press staff and a frenchman shows their ability to weave different sorrowful moods into a very special dreamlike state with delicate electronic haze. Music for staying in bed all day, naturally. As always, intriguing package-wise. Last copy.

KALLABRIS - red square - LP [Inselkind-Schalltraeger]
104 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]
69 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.

KAVAL - zee van gedachten - LP [Vrystaete]
125 SEK
First release on this new Enfant Terrible-sister label Vrystaete from the Netherlands, on the more psych-tinged tracks not unlike a slightly synthesized Hellvete, others odd old-style electronic ambient. Quite enjoyed this actually! Small edition in screenprinted artprint cover, handstamped labels, with insert. Last copy.

KE/HIL - zone 0 - LP [Tesco]
132 SEK
Small restock, now on white vinyl. New fullenght album from previous Meisters Anenzephalia, a strong thematic record around the city of Mannheim. A more complex and modern listen compared to the first album, fanatics will however feel familiar in their analog soundworld. Lesser use of vocals here too if memory serves me right. Good one!

KIRKEGAARD, JACOB - 40 days of silence - LP [Von Archives]
118 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.
KJOSTAD / LIGATURE - overgrown - LP [New Forces]
104 SEK
A quite thrilling mixture of distinct Altar Of Flies / Jartecknet-esque manipulation of regional field recordings and shorter, crispy blasts of harsh noise from Kjostad - Ligature works more around darker atmospheres, also with frequent use of tape and field recordings + snippets of spoken word (which, to these ears don't work too well). The contemplative and hazy use of loops is abruptly cut off by pummeling harsh noise. For some reason this makes me think of the first Sick Seed LP, must be that piano and varying structure. In b/w printed cover, plus insert - at a good price! Last copy.
KLEISTWAHR - arsonicide - LP [Harbinger Sound]
104 SEK
Second re-issue of another old '83 Broken Flag tape, another of Mundy's solo projects, very primitive, crude and quite one-dimensional synthnoise and early PE-style vocals.
KNAEKKEDE STEMMER - forste portraet (et hult menneske) - LP [Jartecknet]
111 SEK
First LP from this post-Alleypisser project - two sidelong tracks based on droning synthesizer, sparse percussive elements and low metal screech. While the a-side is good, things really shine on side b. Quite muffled sound overall - another great issue on Jartecknet. In folded b/w covers, plus insert. Back in stock!

LAST DOMINION LOST - abomination of desolation - LP [The Epicurean / La Esencia]
132 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]
125 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]
118 SEK
No description available at this time. Last copy.
LUMINE - all the unnamed - LP [La Scie Doree]
125 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.
LUSTMORD - things that were - DCD [Infinite Fog]
104 SEK
No description available at this time. Postage as two CDs!
MAEROR TRI - myein - CD [Infinite Fog]
69 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.
MAEROR TRI - hypnotikum I - LP [Soleilmoon]
111 SEK
Proud to have this in stock again - sounds used as backing tapes for liveshows at the time, most impressive mix of archaic, rhythmic industrial leanings with bleak, desolate guitar washes. Parts not unlike some of Proiekt Hat's first LP, surprisingly. Last copy.
MANNION, JOHN - slice through or/in glassmetal - LP [Hanson Records]
104 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]
90 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!
MNEM - engrama - LP [Segerhuva]
83 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]
34 SEK
Old Segerhuva stock now available here! Postage free if ordered with 1, 2 or 4-7 vinyls.
MS30 - t.i.a. - 2 X MLP [Silken Tofu]
139 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]

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.

NOVY SVET - mono - C40 [Reue Um Reue]
83 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]
111 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]
55 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]
111 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]
48 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 4-7 vinyls.
OLHON - fortean tales - LP [Eibon Records]
139 SEK
A lot of the punch here is already mentioned on the inner sleeve - mainly specific field recordings with an occational dark ambience mixed in. Dive into mineshafts, explore caves or meditate with the birdshriek - sift through the various locations and choose your own entrance. For some reason I think a bit of an updated, cinematic Schloss Tegal minus the movie samples when listening to this. There's a certain level of eerieness which surrounds this work, not unlike some horror/sci-fi movies or x-files but ultimately stands firm in a somewhat italian post-industrial tradition. Color cover and inner sleeve, plus nicely marbled brown vinyl.
OLHON - lucifugus - 10" [Substantia Innominata]
69 SEK
Treated and processed field recordings from an empty water tank. Dunno what to call this - screechy dark ambient? Works great in theory but a bit too much digital manipulation, snaps and reverb for my taste. Last copy. Please inquire through email regarding postage.
ONDE - purple - LP [Ondemusic]
118 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.]
132 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]

139 SEK

PAIN NAIL - magneettinen kohtalo - LP [Freak Animal]
118 SEK
Rumbling and quite rhythmic power electronics and old school industrial music with vocals from Finland. In nicely screened covers.
PRIMORJE - body text - 12" [Second Sleep]
132 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.
RECCHION, TOM - proscenium - LP + 7" [Elevator Bath]
174 SEK
No description available at this time.
RED WINE AND SUGAR - dogs, blood, storms, spiders - LP [Index Clean]
132 SEK
Intimate cut-ups and strangely building narratives with slow spoken existentialist vocals, a twisted realism which makes me think of The Shadow Ring but with a charming and, at times, a slight nightmarish touch due the calm tension and warped synth interruptions. Maybe even a splash of Krokta Rum in the way the sounds are arranged, plus claustrophobic aura. I had zero expectations on beforehand and was very much positively surprised. Limited to 100 copies in pro-printed color covers. Last copy.
REGIM - stabbed by the blind - LP [Segerhuva]
83 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]

Pure sounds from a amplified wood scratcher machine, a must-hear minimalist recording!

55 SEK

RLW - funeral parties - LP [Musica Moderna]
118 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.
SACHIKO - golden hypnos - LP [AudioMER]
104 SEK
Very impressive airy, but not really soft drone made from female voice and violin. Utmost monotone material but challenging and soothing. Last copy.
SAUVAGE, TOMOKO - ombrophilia - LP [Aposiopese]
125 SEK
Fantastic vinyl pressing with hydrophone recordings of singing bowls filled with water, then multitracked and edited digitally, great outcome, not really meditative stuff but something to really dive deep in. Last copy.

SCHAKALENS BROR - omelette of disease - LP [Forlag For Fri Musik]
118 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]
125 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!
SERRUYS, MATHIEU - on germaine dulac - LP [B.A.A.D.M.]
125 SEK
First release on this Belgian label - loosely influenced by French filmmaker G.D.'s works. On a bleak backbone of melodic analog synth and reel-to-reel loopings one could maybe draw comparisons to the Swedish tape mafia and US horror synth maestro Envenomist but I think this is not dark alley material, rather evoking a spiritual mood and slightly distorted monumental sceneries of serene beauty. Last copy.
SEWER ELECTION - malign - LP [Ideal Recordings]
104 SEK
Eleven shorter tracks ranging from acoustic guitar strummings, through dank, depressive snippets of decay and rubble to swaying loops. Might not sound that juicy to you but the main thing here is the editing and the underlined sense of something disturbed going on between commonplace sounds and more otherworldly endeavours.
SEWER ELECTION - nara - LP [Jartecknet]
104 SEK
New LP from Dan Johanssons main project, again a step forward into even more minimal approach with long ringing high pitched tones and sparse field recordings documenting from what I gather personal events and close-by sounds. Upon initial listens it does not really grip me as some earlier works but I think this will take time to fully grasp. In likewise minimal packaging, but including large double sided inlay with pictures and texts.
SEWER ELECTION AND LEDA - maar - LP [B.A.A.D.M.]
125 SEK
So why was this not released as Neutral, one might ask? Well, there's obvious reasons musically as the gravelly tones and drones of SE differs much from the cracked chords and whispered vocals of Leda. In a way reminding me of the old The Rita / Bone Awl recording that came years ago where where the material was not split up per side but instead different from each track. This LP sees Johansson in his straight minimal mood with ringing organs and occational bruit-ish decay - the editing here (plus the excellent cover) makes me enjoy this more than the recent "Nara" LP.
SFAR - sprickor - LP [Jartecknet]
118 SEK
Collaboration project between Blodvite and Altar Of Flies - as one might guess reel-to-reel loops remains the main dish also here, but there's also another, playful yet introvert side to this work with intense broken electronics and vocal parts sounding like some 60's private boyroom radio poetry. Intimate and earthy drones sliding into each other but also quite abrupt cuts, blends high and low disturbances plus the soft bleeding creakings.
SHARON'S LAST PARTY - blue light and blue eyes - 7" [Segerhuva]
20 SEK
Old Segerhuva stock now available here! Email for postage rates.
SHIFT - ruminations - 10" [Unrest]
90 SEK
Heavy electronics galore on this vinyl re-issue of an earlier cassette release, much prefer these kind of slow, crispy industrial tunes with samples and morose vocals to his noisier works. In b/w pasted on sleeves.
SHIFT / SICK SEED - s/t - LP [Freak Animal]
111 SEK
No description available at this time.
SISSY SPACEK - trash staging - LP [New Forces]
104 SEK
Literally two sides of the coin here, though it honestly isn't THAT a big difference between their grindcore and harsh noise. Both are hectic, uptempo and furious fun mayhem - on the short a-side made up from bass, feedback, drums and screaming, while the other longer one is much more electronic. If you love your noise action-packed to the max you will upp och hoppa to this blistering performance! I'm thinking Blod collaborating with magic moment-Impregnable here. In printed b/w covers with insert. Last copy.
SIX HEADS - cardboard oracle - LP [Wintage]
83 SEK
Peculiar, unsettling and skillful sound collages in best darker NWW-tradition. Covers screened on recycled old vinyl covers and cardboard. Last copy.
SKIN AREA & JARL - la petite mort - LP [Malignant]
132 SEK
Fantastic new collaboration between these three lads from Norrkoping, surely known among you. All the usual sounds are there, screeching violins, ringing drones and sparse synth, all bubbling with tension and intense layering. A truly unsettling work in surreal atmospheric music around the theme of masturbation so just unzip your trousers and away you go. In pro-pressed sleeves plus 13 delightful individual thick A4 color prints. Please count as two LPs regarding shipping. Last copy.
SMALL CRUEL PARTY - unroof the house of the fishes - LP [Harbinger Sound]
118 SEK
One of those G.R.O.S.S. tapes I didn't want to spend a fortune on so the Harbinger vinyl re-issue came in handy! Sounds like some alien trapped in a hangar trying to speak with whales somewhere deep in the ocean on side A, Ransone doing his version of The New Blockaders on the other. Lots of shrieking metal there, but nowhere aggressive. As usual, completely out of this world and one of those artists I will never fully understand but follow categorically. Newly designed cover and innersleeve, in color.
SPECIAL INTERESTS - no. 10 - MAG [Freak Animal]
48 SEK
A new issue, five years after the last one! Review section has been cut off and instead focus on longer interviews and The Essentials. Mostly into harsher noise/industrial spectrum (Wince, MAAAA, New Forces, Le Syndicat etc.) but also stuff on Torba, Robert Turman and Storm Bugs (plus more of course) so should be something for everybody here. Essential and stays on positive level between fanzine and contemporary music mag. Email for postage rate!

TESTICLE HAZARD / GOLDEN SERENADES - morning star / evening fix - LP [Segerhuva]
83 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]
174 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.
TILLY, THOMAS - script geometry - DLP + CD [Aposiopese]

TILLY, THOMAS - le cebron / statics and sowers - LP [Aussenraum]

TOBACCONISTS, THE - streetlight - 12" [Minor]
83 SEK
No description available at this time.
TOBACCONISTS, THE - a secret place - LP [A Giant Fern / Fabrica]
111 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]
125 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! Just a few copies available.

TREPANERINGSRITUALEN / BODY CARGO - s/t - LP [Autarkeia]
153 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.
TRICOLI, VALERIO - vixit - LP [Second Sleep]
132 SEK
Two long tracks of advanced multichannel electroacoustic vortex, derived from tape treatments and electronic sounds that are processed digitally to create a narrative but abstract landscape taking full use of the soundspectrum. I'm not immediately sucked in as many of the sounds don't seem to be stuck for too long, so the droning moments here are kept at minimum. Still, there's a contemplative feel overall at times that facilitate subconcious travel. In b/w printed both inner and outer sleeve. Last copy.
TROUM - aiws - LP [Backwards]
125 SEK
Why all these vinyl re-issues of CDs that aren't even out of print? Something for the completists or vinyl only buyers I guess. But, if you're reading this then you might be interested anyway, huh? This is Troum in their melodic mode, stretching analog guitar-drones and repetitive, hypnotic harmonies but with a slight amount of grittiness. An album with nine shorter (by Troum standards) tracks recorded between 2002-2005. Did I say best experienced with headphones? New artwork in full color covers. Last copy.
TROUM - acouasme - DLP [Silken Tofu]
174 SEK
Vinyl version of a CD on Cold Spring from 2015, with bonus track. This should according to the pressrelease be Troum in harsher mode - dare I hope for anything like the crushing loops of "Un/Mahts" here? Perhaps not, harsher Troum-wise maybe means not-so-harmonic compared to recent releases and I can say this works MUCH better. These tracks are pushed forwards by thick and airy washes of sound, coupled with a (sometimes) noisy backend. Play loud to get sucked into the hazy drift. On milky white vinyl.

TUSEN AR UNDER JORD - sandhavens genklang - LP [Verlautbarung]
125 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 & CROENE, FREDERIK - fortune de mer - LP [La Scie Doree]
125 SEK
Continuing their studies of the mighty sea with all its senses of permanent unreliability - these nine sequences of mostly traditional instrumentation such as piano, percussion and horns evokes feelings of hardship and despair, with a hard focus on the dramaturgy. Great variation of moods throughout but still with a sense of coherency. Less krauty feel than the last collaboration, just as good! Last copy.

VAN LUIJK, TIMO & VANDERSTRAETEN, KRIS - costa del luna - LP [La Scie Doree]
111 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]
104 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]
118 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]
104 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, and a bit better price this time!
VERTONEN / 16 BITCH PILE-UP - s/t - LP [What We Do Is Secret]
97 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.

VIVENZA - fondements bruitistes 2 - LP [Rotorelief]
139 SEK
Tracks recorded from 1984-86 - now on vinyl with unreleased extra tracks. This second release shows a bit more restrained and darker feel than the first one, and equally satisfactory! Part of the industrial archive from France release series on Rotorelief. Last copy.
VOGEL, MICHEL & CORNER, PHILIP & NEVILLE, PHOEBE - musiques de ailes / winged music - LP [Ricerca Sonora]
125 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]
174 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]
83 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!
WINCE - the older generation - LP [Tordon Ljud]
118 SEK
After a stream of cassette tapes and a phenomenal CD here comes Wince's first vinyl outing, now doing kind of mellow synthesizer rock? Nah, not likely eh? Still living the wet harsh noise dream of course! I won't go as far as the Baglady when it comes to this but it IS a competent work, mumma for all those who still BELIEVE. Noise not needing to prove anything. Full color cover. Last copy.
WORTH - blinder - LP [Prose Nagge]
125 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.
WOUTERS, HERO - muziek voor leven en dood - LP [Enfant Terrible]

YOUR REALITY IS BROKEN - various artists - LP [Black Rose Recordings]
139 SEK
NEW ITEM. 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!
ZOS KIA / COIL - transparent - DLP [Cold Spring]
139 SEK
Another re-issue of this classic old Nekrophile Records-tape. We cannot deny the influence from TG on these live recordings but they hold a primal, occult and non-calculated feel throughout. In gatefold cover + twelve-inch booklet. Last copy.
