FOUR LEVELS OF EXISTENCE - (BLACK) THE FOUR LEVELS OF EXISTENCE (LP/ANAZITISI)

Official reissue of one of the rarest albums from the Greek '70s. 4 Levels came into existence in 1974 from the ashes of Frog's Eyes (thus the "peace-frog" cover of the album). They recorded their sole album in a matter of 10 hours with no overdubs and released it via a small (and not at all "rock-connected") label, called Venus. Some months later everything came to an end. The Levels disbanded, leaving behind this, highly sought-after nowadays, LP. Heavy underground, fuzzy guitar oriented rock, with some psychedelic and ethnic elements. Greek lyrics (although translated in English lyrics are included in the booklet). Limited to 350 copies on black vinyl.

LA MORTE VIENE DALLO SPAZIO - SKY OVER GIZA (LP/BLOODROCK)

Arising from the confluence of La Morte (flute) and Lo Spazio (lead guitar/sitar), La Morte Viene Dallo Spazio born in Milan, Italy, is an open ensemble that has reached its current shape by its conjunction with two female Entities (bass, vocals, synth, moog, theremin). The EP 'Sky Over Giza'was inspired by Italian sci-fi movies and soundtracks passing through space rock. Its ritual atmospheres craft a both vibrant and hypnotic effect altogether increasing nodding into the dark ambient and cosmic music.

TABBY SENSIBILITIES - B&W&TABS (LP/THE WEIRD BEARD)

First album of solo project by Russell Smith (Terminal Cheesecake, God, A.R. Kane, Skullflower, Melting Hand etc.). Limited to 250 copies on marbled vinyl.

VARIOUS - BOSPORUS BRIDGES, VOL. 3 (LP/BLACK PEARL)

A wide selection of rare Turkish funk, jazz, beat and psychedelic music from the 1960s and 1970s. This is the third issue of the groundbreaking 'Bosporus Bridges' compilation series started in 2005 (Vol. 1) and continued in 2011 (Vol. 2). Why did it take so long for the release of Vol. 3? Because deep digging, deep selecting and the label's wish to serve you Turkish pop music of the highest order takes its time. And it is worth doing so. According to the aspiration of the 'Bosporus Bridges' series you will get extraordinary music, opening your mind and remapping your knowledge of Turkish music. As Turkish pop music is a hybrid of Western and Eastern elements, it's not just funk, jazz, beat and psychedelic music but each time a specific Turkish approach to a hybrid pop music. This incorporates Turkish language, instruments, melodies etc., all mixed with electric instruments, drums and sound effects of Western pop music. Enjoy deep Turkish funk by Seyyal Taner, Süheyl Denizci, Cengiz Coskuner and Erkut Taçkin, Turkish jazz by the Burhan Tonguç Ritm Grubu and Figen Han, Turkish beat by Lili Ivanova, Ajda Pekkan and Fatos Balkir, Turkish psychedelic by Semra Sine, Serter Bagcan and Harout Pamboukjian, and Turkish-Asian rock by Dönüsüm & Halit Kakinç.

GARAGE/BEAT/SURF/ROCK’N’ROLL

SUBCULTURE - YOUNG (7"/HEAVY SOUL)

The debut single by the band that is taking the Mod world by storm. It will take you back to the mid-'80s (The Jam, Chords, Purple Hearts etc.) with that youthful energy with razor-sharp lyrics about what is affecting them and their peers.  The first of many exciting releases lined up for a band that is going to be massive in 2019. See 'em when you can but in the meantime catch the debut 7"!

FRENCH BOUTIK - L'AME DE PARIS (LP/HEAVY SOUL)

After many years waiting, Heavy Soul! is more than a little excited to be releasing the second album by Parisian masters of cool: French Boutik. Gabriela, Serge, Zelda and Jean-Marc have put together ten more cuts that combine French style mixed with English '60s pop. It's like Françoise Hardy fronting The Kinks or Jean Seberg on vocals for The Style Council! From the opening drum roll of 'Strasbourg Saint Denis' with its flute interludes and second track 'Pedaler Pour Les Prunes' that has a dreamy, floating sweep through a multitude of sounds, you soon come to the conclusion that this is going to be good... And it is...  Mesdames et Messieurs, je vous donne French Boutik avec le nouveau son classique de 'L'Ame De Paris'.

INDUSTRIAL/EXPERIMENTAL/NOISE/NEOFOLK/GOTHIC

LEFT HAND RIGHT HAND - BITING THE HANDS THAT BLEED YOU (CD/COLD SPRING)

Legendary industrial/leftfield band LEFT HAND RIGHT HAND formed in 1986 when former members of Thee Temple Ov Psychick Youth affiliated band ZAHGURIM met THE COLONELS. This album curates tracks from their three principal sets: 'Humdrum' (1990, People Who Can't), 'Legs Akimbo' (1992, World Serpent) and 'In Mufti' (1995, Musica Maxima Magnetica) - notable for their heavy percussive and ritual elements. For recordings (and their experimental live sets) they attracted great collaborators including Lol Coxhill, Charlie Collins (Clock DVA), Karl Blake (Lemon Kittens, Shock Headed Peters) and fire-breathing vocalist Polleke Wijnberg. "Whirlwind dervish jigs around the junkyard, all sulphurous vocals, thrashing percussion and burning fiddles" (Rhythm Magazine). File next to Test Dept., Het Zweet, Konstruktivits, Crash Worship. Presented in a 6-panel digipak with photographs from the time by Mandy Holland.

METAL/STONER/HARDROCK

POTION - MY BLADE ENSLAVED (BLACK) (LP/BLACK FARM)

The Sydney-based three-piece releaes an extremely heavy and intense album of psychedelic riff-laden doom metal. This edition on BLACK VINYL is limited to 180 copies.

DELICE - SILLAGE (CD/BEVERINA/CASUS)

Délice is the brainchild of B.M., known for his projects Skyforest, A Light In The Dark, Annorkoth, Autumn's Kingdom and Hiki. The music on 'Sillage' is marked with a sad smile, and it's deeply emotional, melancholic, romantic. It creates something special in the mood distinguishing this album among many "brothers in trade". 'Sillage' will be of interest for fans of Adorn, Morose and Hypomanie.

NEBULA ORIONIS - STARTHRONE (CD/BEVERINA/CASUS)

Nebula Orionis is back with their third album elaborating some musical ideas, fully manifested on the EP 'Soulshard'. M42, the leader of the project, creates music that is already hardly identified with black metal - his new music is deep and bottomless, and it's like the sky on a frosty night. So, now some parallels are drawn more and more clearly between 'Starthrone' and an epic space saga soundtrack dedicated to the explorers of the Universe! Don't miss 'Starthrone', if you're interested in Midnight Odyssey, Mesarthim and Ison!

REALM OF WOLVES - OBLIVION (CD/BEVERINA/CASUS)

Realm Of Wolves was formed early in 2018 by the members of Vvilderness, Silent Island and other projects. Thisis melodic atmospheric music with harsh vocals and metal instrumentation.
