Debbie Harry - Loco A GoGo

PSYCHEDELIC/PROGRESSIVE/FOLK

GURU GURU - ELECTRIC CATS (LP/ADANSONIA)

With 'Electric Cats', the 30th album in Guru Guru's extensive catalogue, the pioneering krautrockers impressively show that they stay true to their art, sounding experimental and against the mainstream, musically excellent, rocking, psychedelic and always in the corridors of world music. 'Electric Cats' is once again a concentrated load of psychedelic krautrock. This edition is limited to 350 copies on black/red vinyl.

POPOL VUH - FOR YOU AND ME (LP/ONE WAY STATIC)

'For You And Me' was Popol Vuh's 17th album. Though it was released back in 1991, today it holds up more than ever. While decidedly new age and world music in sound (with musical elements from the Himalayas, Ireland, Greece and Africa), this album has style and grace, and the updated sonic quality makes it a pleasure to listen to. Out of print since 1991 and never released on wax outside of Europe, now it's available again as a gorgeously packaged deluxe LP-edition. Strictly limited to 700 copies (on black vinyl), this reissue comes with spot-varnished details on the jacket.

ONTALVA, ANGEL -& NO GROOVES- - BLOOD MOON TONIGHT (CD/OCTOBERXART)

A progressive/psychedelic jazz-rock album by Spanish guitarist Angel Ontalva, recorded live in a studio in Tomsk, Siberia during the Fall of 2016. The CD features Yuri Turov on guitar, Vadim Dikke on bass and Ilya Shekk on drums.

GARAGE/BEAT/SURF/ROCK’N’ROLL

SATAN'S LITTLE HELPERS - ANOTHER GIRL (7"/BELUGA)

An ass-kicking 7-inch by a band featuring Sweden's garage rock elite. We hear Jens Lindebeg (Crimson Shadows, Maharajas, Stomach Mouths), Måns P. Månsson (Crimson Shadows, Flight Reaction, Maggots), Ragmar Sjören (Satans) and Martin Ficks (Boatsmen).

VARIOUS - I KNOW THAT I GOT A HEAVY SOUL, VOL. 3 (LP/HEAVY SOUL)

The third installment in this popular series features a host of bands that are inspired by the sounds of the '60s. On offer is an eclectic mix of soul, beat, psyche, pop moderniste and funk. There are contributions from The Galileo Seven, French Boutik, The Deep Six, The Mourning After, Logan's Close, Cow, The Sha La La's, The See No Evils, Aunt Nelly, King Mojo, The Lost Boys, The Pacers, The Beatpack, The Prince Regents and The Chessmen.

DEEP SIX - INTRODUCING (CD/HEAVY SOUL)

These 14 tracks were played with maximum rhythm and soul, which is not surprising if you know that Mark 'Syd' McGounden wrote nearly all of 'em. Yes, that's Syd from Makin' Time and the Upper Fifth, aided by former Thread Paul Hooper-Keeley as well as Niall Keohane and Tony Barbados. Expect melody, harmony, well-crafted songs and an obvious nod to catchy '60s beat-pop

RIC & THE DUKES - TRAIN AGAIN BLUES (7"/SLEAZY)

A primordial dose of raw, unrefined rock & roll from the Andalusian rockabillies known as Ric & The Dukes, in truly classic 1950's American style.

STRANGE BLUE DREAMS - REVERBERATIN' LOVE/SUN & MOON (7"/TRASH WAX)

The Strange Blue Dreams present their vinyl debut on Trash Wax Records, two songs that passionately distil their influences into a unique and exciting new sound. Menacing drums and surf-noir guitars, a cowboy anthem that adds a dash of Sun Records hillbilly beat. "A spooky musical backdrop of early rock n roll, R&B, rockabilly and country". Artwork by Marcel Bontempi.

JONES, GEORGE - FEELING SINGLE, SEEING DOUBLE/ALONG CAME YOU (7"/SLEAZY)

George Jones' first recording session for New York based Musicor records was a collaboration with teen idol Gene Pitney. It resulted in the album 'Recorded In Nashville'. His second album for Musicor though was to be a solo effert titled 'New Country Hits'. It was released in July 1965 and reached no.5 on the US country charts. It also featured the two tracks available here for the first time on 45. 'Feeling Single, Seeing Double' was written by the late Wayne Kemp, and with its amazing guitar work this track really should have stormed the charts. So get ready to dance! 'Along Came You' was written by Jones and Jack Rich. Its stunning guitar work makes this another classic worthy of its place on this special 45. Both songs were recorded in June 1965 at the famous Quonset Hut Studio.

PUNK/HARDCORE

KRIMEWATCH - KRIMEWATCH (7"/STATIC SHOCK)

New York City's Krimewatch is one of the most exciting bands to emerge from hc in the last years. The five tracks on this EP sound like a combination of Japanese punk and early NYHC. The band keeps it simple with shouted vocals (in both Japanese and English) and driving beats.

IMPALERS - CELLAR DWELLER (UK) (LP/STATIC SHOCK)

'Cellar Dweller' can only be described as a party that you've been invited to, but that you might not make it out of alive. The hilarious, hellish full-colour poster insert was designed by Mason Tucker, and the sterile, alienating horror cover was done by the steamroller talent J.S. Aurelius.

PUSSY RIOT - KILL SEXIST (CD/PROTEST)

Anti-sexist rumblings from Mr. Putin's favourite riot squad! CD edition! Limited to 300 copies.

INDUSTRIAL/EXPERIMENTAL/NOISE/NEOFOLK/GOTHIC

COIL - (BLACK) ANOTHER BROWN WORLD/BABY FOOD (LP/SUB ROSA)

These two rare pieces were commissioned by Sub Rosa for these two specific projects: 'Myths 4 - Sinople Twilight In Çatal Hüyük' (1989) and 'Chaos In Expansion' (1993). 'Another Brown World' was recorded by Danny Hyde at Threshold House, London in the summer of 1989, but the vocals were recorded at the Animist Monastery situated at the Summit of Mount Popa in Pagan, Burma. 'Baby Food' was the first track to utilize the recording process known as "Sidereal Sound", a continuation and advancement of the deep listening theories as demonstrated on the album 'Love's Secret Domain' (1991). Recorded in a storm in London in the summer of 1993.

FERRARI, LUC - COMPLETE MUSIC FOR FILMS 1960-1984 (3CD) (CD/SUB ROSA)

CD1: 1. Egypte ô Egypte - Dans Ce Jardin Atroce (1960/21:24) 2. Egypte ô Egypte - Formule De L'Au-Delà (1960/33:04) 3. Loin De L'Equilibre (1977/21:27) CD2: 1.

GUIRAUD, CHRISTOPHE - HIERA PICRA HELLÉBORES (COLLECTION 2011-2016) (CD/SUB ROSA)

Christophe Guiraud uses old instruments such as the Hotteterre flute, the viola da gamba and the viola bass, and combines them with electronics. The music on this double-CD was performed by Ictus Ensemble, Catherine Guesde & Nina Garcia, Ensemble Tresse, Ensemble La Grive, André-Marc Delcourt, Ensemble 21, Ryan/Mitchell/Zeitlin/Blunt Quartet, Christophe Guiraud, Ensemble/Collectif Binoculaire and Ensemble Sturm Und Klang.

CREATION THROUGH DESTRUCTION/NIHILIST ASSAULT GROUP - PHILOSOPHY OF THE HAMMER (LP/4IB)

This full-length completes the collaborative process between two highly esteemed noise projects: Serbian harsh noise act Creation Through Destruction and England's notorious and anonymous noise terrorists Nihilist Assault Group/The New Blockaders. The earlier project being The New Blockaders & Creation Through Destruction 12-inch 'Negative Mass'.

P.A.L - SIGNUM (2LP) (LP/ANT-ZEN)

'Signum' was initially released in 1995 on CD to become not only a larger-than-life cornerstone of P.A.L's discography, but also a historical document in industrial music. Recorded over a three-year period (1993-'95), this album displays the past and present face of this artist's sonic variety. The ingredients range from sweeping minimalistic soundscapes and powerloaded percussion-driven floorburners to heavily distorted harsh power noise attacks, presented as a unified front. This is a split release between Ant-Zen and Aufnahme + Wiedergabe.

VOMIR - CLOITREZ ET TUEZ VOUS TOUS (CD/4IB)

With 'Cloitrez Et Tuez Vous Tous', Vomir returns to the most basic essence regarding his identity as a harsh noise wall practitioner. This single one-hour-plus track is the final result of a depurating mindset. Vomir focuses on achieving the true backbone of his signature sound, while continuing to devastate all ears with a raw and unmovable wall of static. Still relentless, the boundaries of its aesthetics get pushed further and deeper by the storm of distortion overlayed by the bleakness of massive cloistered sounds.

METAL/STONER/HARDROCK

DOPETHRONE - 1312 (BLACK) (12"/TOTEM CAT)

Limited edition of 300 hand-numbered copies on BLACK VINYL. Dopethrone from Canada returns with the skull crushing 12-inch EP '1312'. These three filthy and gorey sludge tracks will blow you away and then crush you into pulp. The B-side is etched.

BIRUSHANAH/MONARCH - SPLIT LP (LP/MUSIC FEAR SATA)

France's most active and emblematic drone/doom metal purveyors Monarch collaborate with Japanese tribal doomers Birushanah. This split is not only gorgeous to behold, it is a thick slab of heaviness ready to decimate your very being.

BLACK TOMB - BLACK TOMB (2LP) (LP/TOTEM CAT)

This limited edition DOUBLE-LP consists of one ORANGE and one BLACK VINYL PLATTER, with an etched fourth side. If you imagine crossing Graves At Sea with Electric Wizard and Cough, and then giving the resulting demonic creature a huge bong load, that might begin to describe this band's sound. So get ready for a huge dose of groove laden and fuzzed out riffs, heavy bass lines, solid drumming, poison laced vocals and an atmosphere that could choke a horse.

VARIOUS: WORLD, CLASSICAL, SPOKEN WORDS ETC.

VARIOUS - THE GAMELAN OF THE WALKING WARRIORS (LP/AKUPHONE)

'GAMELAN BELEGANJUR AND THE MUSIC OF THE NGABEN FUNERARY RITUAL IN BALI' - A fascinating immersion in the heart of a funeral ceremony recorded live in Bali, with gongs, cymbals and drums giving rhythm to the bewitching atmosphere of a mortuary procession. These recordings were collected by Vincenzo Della Ratta, PhD in Ethnomusicology from the Sapienza University (Rome). As a specialist of the gong music from the Austronesian cultures of Southeast Asia, Della Ratta is the author of numerous articles on the subject. His field researches have already been edited as an album entitled 'Kwangkay: Funerary Music Of The Dayak Benuaq Of Borneo' (Sublime Frequencies, 2016). The LP includes a download card for the complete ceremony.
