Maurizio Bianchi & Ryan Martin – As Strong As Death Is
2 x C-30 Cassettes (R&L051)
Edition of 100

Spanning the course of two years to create, legendary Italian noise composer Maurizio Bianchi & Ryan Martin took on the pilgrimage of scoring the abstract marriage of the Song of Solomon.  Employing prepared electronics with accompanying strings and tape, this ambient religious collaboration seeks to flesh out the union, to understand the universal desire to be one. Constricted lullabies walk down the aisle to create a consortium of moving, ghost-like consolidation.  Mixed and edited by Anthony Mangicapra (Hoor-paar-Kraat) and mastered by Kris Lapke (Alberich). Magnetized onto two cassettes and housed in a vinyl tape album.

Edition of 75

80′s style EBM hits hard with phased-out industrial from the heads of Michael Berdan (York Factory Complaint / Veins) and Erik Proft (Kama Rupa / EMP). Two hard cuts that would fit well in an Wax Trax compilation, think Front Line Assembly meets early Nitzer Ebb, NYC style. Now imagine something better.

80′s style EBM hits hard with phased-out industrial from the heads of Michael Berdan (York Factory Complaint / Veins) and Erik Proft (Kama Rupa / EMP).

C46 Cassette (R&L036)
Edition of
 100

Tape loop deviant, 8 track delinquent…Aaron Dilloway is no doubt the master of the edit.  Wolf Eyes founder who’s solo endeavors have ventured in the dubbed analog void delivers his new cassette of rural joust.   Using recordings from Dilloway’s grandfather’s tractor, which were later edited together for use in Twig Harper’s ‘SoundBed‘ installation in 2011, these cuts represent a startling collection of bouncy noise drag and farmland machinery anarchy.

3” CDr (R&L032)
Edition of 40

Have the gods gone mad? Future Blondes are hosting the acid orgy and no one got invited!!!  Recently releasing their debut full length LP entitled ‘Feather 17′ on Blind Prophet, Domokos and his band of psychojackers have been hitting the blacktop playing a variety of shows, all of which have fabricated the wormhole of space time into a wigwam of flip-trip-rhythm and noise-pistol action.  This CDr documents a live recording during the maelstrom at the Libertine Social Club in July 2012, thus setting back civilization 100 years! Not for the easy listening but definitely for anyone easy.

Chris Brokaw – Tidal Mud
C46 Cassette (R&L031)
Edition of 100

Best known for his work in bands like Codeine, The New Year, Come, The Pullman, Consonant, Brokaw/Farina Duo, and others, Chris Brokaw has been a musical mainstay in the underground / alternative post-rock scene for over 25 years.  This latest release shows Brokaw in a far more experimental light, shedding his familiar structures and going head first into the unknown.  Originally released in a private edition of 22 copies, this cassette reissues his solo organ drone works that encompass his non-linear use of keyboard composition and a withdrawn sound of vibraphone, guitar and rain. Perfection in solitude.

Letha Rodman Melchior / Tretetam – Moon Mountain
C30 Cassette (R&L029)
Edition of 75

Letha Rodman Melchior is a musician beyond any standard comparison, superbly “breaking the mold” would be a criminal understatement. Being active in the garage & experimental scenes for the better part of the past 20 years, her name is a common imprint in a wide array of genres. Letha’s Tretatam moniker has flourished as a highlight on the revered Finnish label Ikuisuus and her guitar/vocals added to the powerhouse rock group Ruby Falls outshines most attempts at alternative sounds that one could imagine. Most musicians only dream of such a resume, but Letha does not stop there. Her most recent sound collage recordings are some of her finest work to date. Somewhere lodged between a frantic penny opera, sublime parlor entertainment and an unmade Hitchcock soundtrack , Letha pulls out everything in her arsenal to combine her field recordings, instrumentation and lively ideas to fill up this wonderful release. Follow Letha’s recent battles and triumphs on her blog, http://lethashappyhospitalfuntime.blogspot.com/

Edition of 52

Noise dirge from the collaborative efforts of Chris Brokaw (Codeine / Come) and David Michael Curry (Willard Grant Conspiracy).  Slow feedback slumping into guitar and viola squelches, equaling a funeral song for the recently deceased.  Showing a level of constraint, though slapping their heavy hand of amplitude.

Black Leather Jesus – Even Deeper
C20 Cassette (R&L026)
Edition of 100

Punishment & sex in it’s least refined, the calling card for Black Leather Jesus and the nightmare they’ve left behind over the past 23 years.  Formulated by Richard Ramirez (Werewolf Jerusalem), this was one Ramirez’s earliest concepts and foray into the collaborative “band” idea.  Ramirez being the sole core member, Black Leather Jesus has had dozen of members phasing in and out of its ranks, always keeping the perverse steady had of autoerotic execution.  Steady attacks of harsh noise, charging forward with each member’s contribution being piled on top of the last in a frenzied orgy of bondage electronics. Lesson learned, over and over.

These Feathers Have Plumes – Hegira
3” CDr (R&L025)
Edition of 65

Beautiful, haunting drone works by masterful avant-garde composer Andie Brown under her alias These Feathers Have Plumes.  Former performer of underground goth-rock outfit Cindytalk, Brown has departed that world to focus on her minimalist compositions, employing numerous ideas and effects to reach her humbled zenith.  These Feathers Have Plumes utilizes her standard form of upright bass and tape, but more recently her “glass pieces” have reflected her talent and ear for new forms and meditative techniques.  Two reflective ambient works captured for reproduction, replicated for enlightenment.

During the winter of 2011, a collaboration set between Genetic Infantryman (Charles Hickey of Black SS) and Ryan Martin (DeTrop / York Factory Complaint) took place during the first snow on December 23, 2011 at the  Badlands Gallery in Syracuse, NY.  Both artists compiled a setting using modular electronics, voice and tape manipulated through a variety of methods and portrayed simply in a limited document of this special event.

Rust Worship – Optimistic
C40 Cassette (R&L023)
Edition of 70

Backwards musique mixed up in a noise car crash, cut up strands of sound are the only things Rust Worship can communicate with. Paul Haney’s solo performances resemble something mysterious and powerful, typical involvement gets brushed aside for pure immersion.  Previous releases on Haney’s own Obsolete Units label as well as 905 Tapes & Tape Drift resemble Rust Worship as a marksman for sound and energy.  This release catalogs  3 unique and diverse live sets by Rust Worship, first being a performance at the infamous Redlight District in far Rockaway, NY.  Backend shows two performances in Ridgewood, NY included a special set from the Ende Tymes Festival in Ridgewood, NY.

York Factory Complaint – Sufferings
3” CDr (R&L022)
Edition of 50

Initially recorded during the sessions with engineer Kris Lapke for their full length debut album on Dais Records, this solo composition was edited for it’s own inclusion then promptly dismissed. Only fitting within itself, Sufferings had no other to join hands. Considered aptly as a full length preview or amputated as a diseased limb, this small offering is one’s own glimpse into what is to come.

York Factory Complaint – Live Document ’09- ’10
C40 Cassette (R&L021)
Edition of 110

A display of select live performances that document the evolution and destruction which compromises York Factory Complaint.  First side is a complete live show featuring the original two piece line up with a guest member appearance by artist Genesis Breyer P-Orridge on treated violin, flooding the audience with abrasive repetition and apparent desperation.  Complimenting this is two additional recordings, first being a early performance in the band’s infancy with guest appearances by Cory Card and Louis Caldarola.  Directly afterwards is a more recent recording highlighting the band as they are now know in their current form performing to a confused audience at the seminal New Musuem in New York City during the painful summer of 2010. History should never be repeated.

Femminielli – Sprezzatura
C20 Cassette (R&L020)
Edition of 100

Montreal’s backwards veil disguises it’s unique history in dance music and all things electronic.  Femminielli is years worth of artistic reference personifying this curious obsession with imported 80′s discothèque culture, cued perfectly into this years best anthems.  One of the co-conspirators behind the infinate experiemntal label Los Discos Enfantasmes and previous releases on Hobo Cult, Fixture and Digitalis, Bernardino Femminielli is fresh on deck for his most recent dance floor masterpiece, Sprezzatura.  Joining together italo-disco beats, ethereal krautrock influence synthesizer sequences, Mediterranean hustler mantras…all tied up in a sordid karaoke meltdown. Tough to explain, easy to digest…won’t you join us.

***SOLD OUT*** 

Exhumed Corpse – Mortem Obire
C50 Cassette (R&L018)
Edition of 75

Corrosive lo-fi dark ambient by Michigan noise mainstay Sam Wagner, Exhumed Corpse is a wallowing retreat from his solo works as Dour and Tightrope.  Having a wide spread of releases in bands such as Bluebird (alongside Aaron Dilloway), Gridlock’d (with Pleasure Dome’s Thom Elliott), and Black Onyx to name a few, Wagner’s Exhumed Corpse project has been a self-sustaining staple of his own With Intent Records as well as madness released through Hanson Records, Hermitage, Fag Tapes and FM Tapes.  Counter-industrial with a primitive sway that always seethes through the ground.

***SOLD OUT*** 

Kama Rupa – City Of Caesars
C30 Cassette (R&L017)
Edition of 75

Only known to have played a select few times, the sparse and nomadic group known as Kama Rupa have kept an air of ambient mystery among their ranks.  Members have collectively been a part of more known creations (Hoor-paar-Kraat, EMP, Skin Drink) but together, the ritualistic nature of their music has taken course not unlike Metgumbnerbone, LAShTAL and Zero Kama.  Primitive, ritual based drone with a esoteric compass leading one straight into a hall of reverse enlightenment.

***SOLD OUT***

Sudden Infant – The Wicked Mothers
C20 Cassette (R&L016)
Edition of 125

The name Joke Lanz is typically used as a metaphor to describe the most pure & harrowing elements of transgressive art, conjuring up solemn images of contortion & absurdity.  Making instant breakthroughs in the late 80′s reactionary Swiss art scene using his alias of Sudden Infant, Joke Lanz also is one of the key members of avant-garde performance art group Schimpfluch-Gruppe which employed various mediums along side performances to erase any perceived notion of social dogma.  Sudden Infant left it’s own unquire signature on the world with such classic recordings as Radiorgasm (1991) and Solothurn (1994), leaving a blueprint behind of his current sound art study. Typically employing the use of distortion and voice, scrambling up both mediums until one is indistinguishable for the other.  This recent composition, wrapped up as The wicked Mothers, is a unique example of such primal techniques.

Lasse Marhaug – Angelica 2011/05/20
C30 Cassette (R&L015)
Edition of 100

The blowback driving force behind the Scandinavian noise scene is at times disorienting, but one always knows that this shockwave effect can consistently be found in the works of artist Lasse Marhaug.  Since 1996, Marhaug has evolved and transformed the dynamics involving noise through performing in his mainstay Jazzkammer, pushing the limits of discomfort in Testicle Hazard or collective flirtation in The Origami Replika, he has swung on all ropes of extreme music and polishes his visual aesthetics with a stride unseen.  Hundreds of music releases has his signature distorted view on experimental music and his own PicaDisk label has helped collect his tastes and interests to be broadcast to a larger audience.  This solo recording by Marhaug is a document of a live performance at the Angelica Festival in Bologna, Italy during the spring of 2011. Booming electronics that clang around the open air constantly tripping over itself making it one of the best live recordings to surface in recent years.

DeTrop – Apart From The Dutch Administrators, There Seemed To Be Only About A Dozen Whiteskins Living In Bali
3” CDr (R&L014)
Edition of 30

A brief extract from the Rewards of Faith session, this limited release pulls together one piece that perfectly displays the crackling, fuzz electronics and industrial field recordings that document DeTrop in its ability to perform in the most difficult of mediums and hone it’s most honest display of experimental statements.

K2 – IsoDoping

C48 Cassette (R&L013)
Edition of 100

Kimihide Kusafuka has been disrupting the general noise listeners experience in the form of K2 since as early as 1983, easily one of the most unique and forward thinking of the Japanese noise grand masters.  His Kinky Music Institute has given a home base for K2′s chaotic brand of “Junk Electronics” as well as exposing the world to like minded brethren and hidden pseudonyms.  After the recent aftermath of the Japan tsunami followed by near meltdown at Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear facility, Japan’s cultural landscape was shaken to it’s core.  K2, who was personally effected by this tragedy, composed a series of frustrating & mournful pieces to expel his sorrow and interject his statement on this historical catastrophe.

 ***SOLD OUT***


DeTrop – Rewards Of Faith
C22 Cassette (R&L012)
Edition of 50

Modular electronics come together with select compositional order using subtle field recordings and microphone manipulations with the context of Brooklyn’s most recent experimental outfit, DeTrop. This group comprising of David Grant (Heks Orkest, Action Patrol), Ryan Martin (York Factory Complaint, Crusades) and Theresa Smith (York Factory Complaint, Bleak Race) has been silently creating sounds flung from the shadows, created in the murky ebb of electronic synthesis.

Pipeline Alpha – Demons And Dances
C60 Cassette (R&L011)
Edition of 100

 

Reclusive German filmmaker turned tape slicer, Marcel Seeck has stacked his cards in favor of mysterious sound edits over contemporary structure.  Using similar styles found amongst the likes of Pierre Schaeffer, Nurse With Wound & Jonty Harrison, Pipeline Alpha gives birth to Jarman-esque, transitional sound sculpture found only the hidden corners of perverse, surreal fantasy.  Previous release on his own Amid The Waves label and notable jaunts on free-psych imprint DNT showed an Pipeline Alpha in rapid development, Demons and Dances allows for a fully realized story selflessly contained in his private Pandora’s Box.

***SOLD OUT***


Chapels – That Incorrigible Death’s-Head
C40 Cassette (R&L010)
Edition of 100

After only three years, Chapels has substantiated itself to be one of the more recondite composers within the experimental drone stratosphere.  Years of leading his imprint label, House Of Alchemy, Adam Richards quickly found himself drowning in a haze of industrial chime, making sounds only comfortable at the bottom of a trenched shipwreck.  Chapels has allowed forms to manifest using simple, crude set-ups to validate the sounds which normally are discarded.  Each turn of the crank piles on top of itself to hyperventilate the groundwork to which it was formed, an deliberate emergency forcing us to keep cool and ignore the uncomfortable atmosphere that we are forced to acknowledge. Previous releases on his own House of Alchemy along side Cut Hands, Tape Drift, 905 Tapes and Peasant Majik speak volumes to a kind of sedated coma that is released hereto.

***SOLD OUT***


Werewolf Jerusalem – Carnal Violence
C10 Cassette (R&L009)
Edition of 100

Werewolf Jerusalem was an obvious progression for an established sound artist like Richard Ramirez, who’s contributions to the world of noise music provided a guiding light to hundreds of like-minded artists who were shown how to release music in a care free, yet curated, manner by way of his Deadline Recordings.  With a resume dating back over 20 years, Ramirez has collaborated with such radical pioneers of the genre such as Merzbow, MSBR, Sudden Infact, Atrax Morgue, Astro, The Rita, and hundreds of others who have found their way into Ramirez’s painful stable.  Roughly ten years ago, Ramirez unleashed the first recordings under Werewolf Jersulam…a harsh noise project that unlike his previous work, focusing more on purity and control with respect to noise, in which he spent a lifetime stockpiling just to give it life in its present form.  Carnal Violence is an accessible work for anyone familiar with Werewolf Jerusalem, but still remarkably stark in contrast to how Ramirez has perfected the art of acrid noise sculpture to present an fictional play of violence and retribution. Cover photo by Sara Silverstein.

Scorpio & Glass – Eight Days For Trifecta
C30 Cassette (R&L008)
Edition of 84

Patience and control work synonymously underneath the primordial works of Scorpio & Glass, as if time has stood still in order to capture his compositions.  Typically working out of his Nurse Etiquette imprint and using destructive electronics at his disposal within the mainframe of the Body Collector namesake, Khristopher Reinshagen has kept up his prolific energy racing towards a new light.  Scorpio & Glass strips down everything previously released to a more conceptual medium, this time encapsulating the idea over technology. Using simple microphone and amplification techniques to manipulate the dead space that surrounds us, Eight Days For Trifecta gives a more primitive glimpse into the audible association that many believe to be ahead of its time.

***SOLD OUT***


York Factory Complaint – Will & Testament
C30 Cassette (R&L007)
Edition of 100

Only shown for a brief period of time, presentation is key when dealing with audio deconstruction. Two complimentary recordings laid down straight to tape in late 2010, with only the goal of a new direction of improvisation in mind. Each side solidifies their line up into a more cohesive freeform industrial ensemble.  Layered thick like a destructive laugh track, broken and warped and burned down again just to make sure everything stays down.  Building on the more primitive earlier recordings, adding a collapsible foundation of  noise guitar, modulated double bass application and tape electronics that makes nothing seem comfortable.

***SOLD OUT***

Knights Of Timbre – Rite Of Noise
C60 Cassette (R&L006)
Edition of 100

Abstract destruction of an dead format.  Providence-based visual artist Dave Fischer has spent decades producing some of the most challenging and desolate visual art that our species has ever been subjected to.  Knights of Timbre  is no exception.  Only known to have one previous release on Animal Disguise and quietly turning himself on to have contributed to sporadic Hospital Productions compilations, Fischer’s work under the guise of Knights of Timbre (and ever more endangered is his works under Slow Death) is a rare occurrence and is to be taken very seriously.  Knights of Timbre culls together to joint sound of obsolete electronics and self-written software, allowing the computers themselves to produce orchestrated, algorithmic oscillation to take form using his own organic & mathematical hybrid of sound curation, software engineering and corralled mayhem.  This was the sound that IBM was always looking to but too scared to pursue, without apology.

***SOLD OUT***

Bleak Race – Communication Breakdown
C30 Cassette (R&L005)
Edition of 100

Communication Breakdown is the lost gospel for the final blueprint of Bleak Race.  Theresa Smith cuts up her time between guitar duties in Home Blitz, tape destruction and noise bleeding in York Factory Complaint, and lo-fi cheek pinching behind the wall of Lemon Dots.  Somehow along the way she lost all sense of reality, completely immersing herself in the fine art of analog seduction, which opened up a Pandora’s box of hellish tone.  Treated violin sliced up and left for dead, junk electronics gasping for air and schizophrenic editing that has no place in this world. A wretched drool of warped sex appeal and beautiful disaster wrapped up in 30 minutes, maybe that isn’t enough.

***SOLD OUT***

Future Blondes – Vila’gok 2
C60 Cassette (R&L004)
Edition of 100

With only a few sporadic recordings to document the hyperdelia nosebleed fixture that is the nomadic force of Future Blondes, only a select few have actually witnessed the collective myth that is only enhanced by the renegade trip that has been crafted by outsider artist Domokos and his Future Blondes creation. Previous endeavors with Helios Creed and current duties as evangelist for Rusted Shut, Future Blondes is a step sideways and around. This limited edition cassette documents one of their few live recordings to which Future Blondes have seen their sound evolve into part dance / part happening / part metaphysical freak out, taking place, with the help of Book of Shadows,  at the Body Control performance space in Austin, TX of ‘10.  Backside of this release switches gears in reverse to a previously unheard studio jam drone, employing the sound of one’s higher self into the ethereal realm of white light.

Hoor-paar-Kraat – Elbow Drops Effortlessly
C40 Cassette (R&L003)
Edition of 100

Most recently, Anthony Mangicapra has expanded his studies with his projected vision as Hoor-paar-Kraat, taking on a subtle form of layered density and broken theater to what some would call a step into the hypnagogic unknown.  Always incorporating a sense of textural beauty found in everyday objects, each piece uses its own sculpted resonance that only HpK can bring out into the open for us, as listeners, to interpret.  Typically releasing his recordings through his own imprint, Goat Eater Arts, and only on select occasion does HpK release compositions on outside labels.  With the release of Elbow Drops Effortlessly, HpK encompasses an additional contribution by artist Ryan Lamm along side Mangicapra, focusing on taking this endeavor to a more mature, dream-like state.

Maurizio Bianchi – Violichte
C54 Cassette (R&L001)
Edition of 100

Recorded in the spring of 2010, this has been declared as the final output of MB entitled ‘Violichte’.  As a fatal swansong, MB loops of his own violia performance, processed through Bianchi’s familiar distorted fog of suspended drone.  Each resonant loop slowly taking form until reaching an ultimate apex, creating an audible deity complemented with MB’s own hertzian generators carefully manipulated to create one of the most delicate abrasions that experimental sound has ever joined.
