KARACA, CEM -VE APASLAR- - AYRILIK GUNUMUZ/GILGAMIS (7"/TÜRKÜOLA)

This is maybe the most outstanding piece from Cem Karaca & Apaslar from their adventure in Germany.

'Gilgamis'/'Ayrilik Günümüz' was one of the singles recorded as a cooperation between the band and this "big band". 'Ayrilik Günümüz' is a mod/rock ballad with polyphonic arrangements. 'Gilgamis' is an instrumental psychedelic rock peace. Officially licensed reissue, especially for the collectors of Turkish psychedelia.

1000MODS - YOUTH OF DISSENT (2LP) (LP/OUGA BOUGA AND THE MIGHTY OUG)

1000mods' highly anticipated fourth full length album 'Youth Of Dissent', produced by legend Matt Bayles (Pearl Jam, Mastodon, Isis, Soundgarden etc.) breaks the spacetime continuum and achieves the impossible: 1000mods meet their childhood heroes, by performing a time travel to the glorious '90s, when fused elements of punk rock and heavy metal changed the face of the music industry and lead to the legendary grunge rock explosion. Primitive, original and inspiring, the songwriting of this release is not only is their best to date, but also appears to be inevitably leading to their mighty breakthrough.

ALEAH - ALEAH (2LP/BLACK) (LP/SVART)

The long-awaited posthumous solo album by Aleah Liane Stanbridge, better known as Aleah Starbridge, singer and songwriter of the Scandiavian band Trees Of Eternity.

BURNIN RED IVANHOE - MILEY SMILE/STAGE RECALL (LP/LONGHAIR)

Burnin Red Ivanhoe, in their most fertile phase of existing from 1969 till 1972, were one of Denmark's finest groups from the period. Their innovative and powerful mixture of psychedelic and progressive rock along with mild experimental or jazz influences gained some international recognition in Germany, UK and the U.S.. Comparisons might be drawn to Traffic, Jethro Tull, Pink Floyd and Colosseum (Dag Erik Asbjornsen). Being tired of demanding tours, Burnin Red Ivanhoe decided to disband in spring 1972. Before this they recorded 'Miley Smile/Stage Recall' during an eight hour session live in the studio on 16/4/1972. Apart from a short rendition of 'Ivanhoe I Brondbyerne' from the first album 'M144', all material was fresh from their current tour programm including some never before released titles. This album underlines the band's perfect live play abilities, the exceptional skills of the musicians playing their instruments. For more than 2 years this was the band's last recording, as Karsten Vogel started a new band with new musicians: the also highly appreciated Secret Oyster (5 albums, all on Long Hair, CD and vinyl versions). The album comes with comprehensive linernotes by Karsten Vogel and rare photos on the insert. The music was warmly and mildly remastered. Don't miss this highlight of Danish progressive rock music. Hightly recommended!

COSMIC DEAD - EASTERFAUST (BLACK) (LP/SOUND EFFECT)

'Easterfaust' by The Cosmic Dead: a magic carpet ride that began in the hazy days of August 2013 when the Cosmics spent five days in a remote isolated garage in the Scottish Highlands with only Focaccia king Luigi Pasquini for company. 'Easterfaust' was the first momentous improvisation from this session to be released and captures the band in a moment of sheer, vibrant exuberance feeling their way through 42 minutes of visceral augmented repetition which metamorphs from the distant echo of space rock to an all-encompassing climactic synchronicity of sound. Originally released in 2014 via Sound of Cobra, this long sold-out and sought after album is now repressed by Sound Effect Records, oh how we ride.

DARIUS (USA) - DARIUS (BLACK) (LP/WORLD IN SOUND)

This is the re-release of World In Sound's limited collectors edition from the year 2001, the legendary Darius album, originally released on Chartmaker Records in 1969; those original albums sell nowadays for at least 500$. Darius, the psychedelic "King", is an extraordinary songwriter, poet and singer with a remarkably sensitive voice. His backing band are the fantastic musicians of Goldenrod, Jerry Scheff, Ben Benay and Toxey French, well known in the LA studio-scene (Doors, Elvis...). The ten original cuts catch the spirit of mystic-loner folk music and distorted garage-psych rock'n'roll on Sunset Strip Hollywood by the late '60s. Limited edition of 400 copies on black vinyl.

DEAN ALLEN FOYD/SHERPA - PSYCHEDELIC BATTLES, VOL. 6 (LP/VINCEBUS ERUPTUM)

HAXAN - ARADIA (GOLD/WHITE) (LP/DHU RECORDS)

Häxan are heavy proto-metal psych sounds from Toronto, Canada. Häxan found their roots in the underground punk scene and integrated them into the psychedelic sound you hear today. Comes with an A3 poster with artwork by Shane Horror. Mastered for vinyl by Tony Reed at HeavyHead Recording Company and produced by Alia O'Brien of Blood Ceremony. A joint release between DHU Records and Fuzzed and Buzzed Records. Comes on gold/white/gold striped vinyl. Only a handful available, so order fast.

OKKULTOKRATI - LA ILDEN LYSE (LP/SOUTHERN LORD)

Second release on Southern Lord and fifth release from this Norse sextet. That's right, six people in the band these days. Darkthrone and The Stooges made a record together and this the result. It has that swagger and rawness that the first Stooges album had and that full on nihilism that Darkthrone had in the early '90s.

SPACEGOAT - SUPERSTITION (LP/ELECTRIC MAGIC)

Spacegoat is a fabulous stoner/doom-band from Monterrey, Mexico. 'Superstition' is the debut full-length of this fairly young group, formed around singer Gina Rios and her brother and main-songwriter Miguel on lead guitar. As the genre's aesthetics imply, there are no big musical inventions or distractions here - it is not progressive by any means, it is straight heavy guitar driven hard rock. Yet among the many small things, there is one that makes a big difference, and that is Gina's voice. In all ranges from sweet and bewitching to a full-on siren, she really shines out from this rough diamond of an album with its hints to '70s classic rock, psychedelia and even a kind of southern rock-piece introducing the B-side... But now listen for yourself, and discover all the details that make this album special and more than worthy of being finally released on vinyl. For fans of female fronted stoner/doom like Acid King, Windhand, Jex Thoth, Holy Grove. Strictly limited to 300 purple vinyl copies.

ST. JOHN, BRIDGET - SONGS FOR THE GENTLE MAN (LP/TRADING PLACES)

The English singer and guitarist Bridget St John was introduced to the bourgeoning London folk scene by guitarist John Martyn, her rich and unusually deep voice being highly distinctive. BBC Radio disc jockey John Peel became one of her greatest champions, and when Peel formed the Dandelion label in 1969 with former Elektra record plugger Clive Selwood, the original intention was to issue St John's music. Following debut album 'Ask Me No Questions', which featured Martyn on a few tracks, the 1971 follow-up 'Songs For The Gentle Man' was produced by Ron Geesin, who supplied a more orchestrated arrangement with woodwinds; the album also features a cover of Donovan's 'The Pebble And The Man.'

STONED CIRCUS - REVISITED (BLACK) (LP/WORLD IN SOUND)

This is a great piece of US garage-psych-rock history. Stoned Circus started in 1968 in Kansas City and soon became one of the hottest local acts and they even opened a stadium show for the Rolling Stones. The fresh powerful sound, with catchy male/female lead vocals, a magic B3 hammond and stunning heavy guitars, reflects a catchy Jefferson Airplane atmosphere. Rockadelic Records located the mastertapes in the archives of Cavern Studios, Kansas and released them in 1994 for the first time as limited LP edition. The music was originally recorded in 1970 and is properly remastered; includes a poster, bio and rare photos. Limited edition of 400 copies on black vinyl.

VIBRAVOID - THE DECOMPOSITION OF NOISE (2LP) (LP/STONED KARMA)

After 30 years, Düsseldorf cult-legend Vibravoid show no signs of wear but are in top form. After a series of highly acclaimed and successful albums, Vibravoid deliver a true masterpiece with 'The Decomposition Of Noise'. Vibravoid impressively succeeds in reinventing themselves on every album and still remaining true to their unique sound, which is deeply rooted in psychedelic rock of the 1960s. 'The Decomposition Of Noise' captivates with epic melodies, creative ideas and infectious grooves beyond the mainstream and trends. If there is still real psychedelic rock like in the 1960s, it is most likely IT HAPPENED TOMORROW, Vibravoid do not use clichés but manage to convey this special feeling authentically.

ZIOR - EVERY INCH A MAN (LP/TRADING PLACES)

The obscure British blues-rock quartet Zior grew out of the thriving late '60s R&B scene in Southend-On-Sea, their live performances often taking the form of hippie 'happenings.' Soon they were drawing from the hard rock and emerging heavy metal scenes of the West Midlands, with Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin the most obvious musical influences (along with Steppenwolf). Their self-titled debut LP trampled through diverse rock terrain, but there was discord and diversions that stopped the band's ascent. After Zior broke up, 'Every Inch A Man' surfaced in Germany, without the band's knowledge or permission; as with the debut, there is heavy psych, hard rock and straight-up blues rock, with a touch of kraut-rock influence.

HENRY GIRLS - SHOUT SISTER SHOUT - A MUSICAL TRIBUTE TO THE BOSWELL (CD/BESTE UNTERHALT)

The Henry Girls convince on this tribute album with the popular songs from the 1920's and 1930's interpreted in an inimitable way by the Boswell Sisters. This includes the fleet 'Heebie Jeebies' by Louis Armstrong and His Hot Five, the classic 'St. Louis Blues' or the well-known 'Mood Indigo' by Duke Ellington. Along with other selected rarities.

IMPLOSION - IMPLOSION (CD/TRADING PLACES)

Obscure yet outstanding Italian outfit that combines prog, space rock, psych and electronic music in an album that could have come from the early 1970s. Long spacey, dreamy and mostly instrumental tracks made of killer, acid-leaking electronics. Released in an edition of 500 copies in 1988, this monster-rare album is now on CD for the first time ever, in a limited edition including 3 bonus tracks and a 16-page booklet featuring lyrics and liner notes.

SEN SVAJA - KARITIS IS PELKES (CD/CPL-MUSIC)

PUNK/HARDCORE

FORBIDDEN WIZARDS - REHEATED CABBAGE (10") (10"/SPAZZ)

A double EP on 10" vinyl that will blow up in your face. Short and fast-paced Rotterdam punk/hardcore. Think Dead Kennedys, think Devo. Forbidden Wizards are sister and brother Amber (guitar/vocals) and Ross Maclean (bass) and Tom van Garderen (drums). It's a band that likes to roll up their sleeves, starts to play instantly and let the sound speak for itself. They don't like to boast about with whom they shared stages or which festivals they played. Therefore their biography consists solely of the following three words: "We make punk." The EPs that appear on this release are 'It's Always Sunny On The 3rd Rock From The Sun' and 'Married... With Spud', which came out last year on cassette via Humanimaal.

OBNOXIOUS YOUTH - MOUTHS SEWN SHUT (LP/SVART)

2020 EP from Sweden's notorious proto-metal punk-villains Obnoxious Youth. 6 tracks of mayhem, havoc, chaos, death, destruction and savagery will rip heads wide open, and ignite minds. Terrorizer Magazine describe their music as a "raw high octane furious mix of punk, rock'n'roll and evil speed fuelled hardrockin' metal" and on 'Mouths Sewn Shut', Obnoxious Youth have molotovs lit and petrol cans full, brimming with the primitive zeal that made the early punk and metal movements of the '80s so exhilarating. For fans of early Metallica, Black Sabbath, Discharge, Ramones, The Misfits, Danzig, Septic Death, RKL, Celtic Frost, Black Flag, Zeke, Adrenalin OD, Slayer, Negative Approach, Venom, Motörhead and Hawkwind, Obnoxious Youth is a furious melting pot of the incendiary spirit of wild, untamed, violent rock.

 

INDUSTRIAL/EXPERIMENTAL/NOISE/NEOFOLK/GOTHIC

BROTZMANN, CASPAR -MASSAKER- - HOME (2LP) (LP/SOUTHERN LORD)

Almost the final chapter in the Massaker story. 'Home' is Massaker revisiting some of their older material and giving them a face lift so to speak. Or maybe just a face rip as it this will tear your face off!

DARKWOOD - NOTWENDFEUER (LP/LICHTERKLANG)

When it comes to classic German neofolk albums Darkwood's 'Notwendfeuer' definitely stands out among them, along with albums like Forseti's 'Erde' or Sonne Hagal's 'Jordanfrost'. Songs like 'Lied Am Feuer', 'Wintermärchen' or 'Verlorenes Heer' proof to be timeless anthems of early German neofolk and still can be found in their setlist up to date. Originally released 2006 on the band's own label Heidenvolk on CD and later in 2013 on vinyl on the Russian label Fronte Nordico, both formats meanwhile are long sold out and nowadays can only be found for insane prices. Lichterklang in cooperation with Darkwood therefore now releases 'Notwendfeuer' with revised artwork in a limited edition of 300 copies on black vinyl. Order fast!

 

METAL/STONER/HARDROCK

KEMEROV - BLACK RIGHT HANDS/ANTI-HERO TIGHTS (7"/VAULT RELICS)

'Black Right Hands'/'Anti-Hero Tights' is the 2020 single from Kemerov, coming from Serres, Greece. It carries the renewed and explosive death'n'roll sound of the band and is the precursor to the upcoming album, which will follow 2017's debut 'FMKD' later in 2020.

BALL - LIKE YOU ARE - I ONCE WAS... (LP/HORNY)

...LIKE I AM - YOU WILL NEVER BE' - Ball is back from the grave! The disturbed, smut-peddling, Swedish hard rock slime heavy psych band makes a triumphant return soaked in bloody diabolical occult havoc. Fucked-up, subhuman fuzz guitars. Depraved, screaming vocals. Gutrumbling bass and caveman groove drums. This is hard rock from hell. 'Like You Are - I Once Was - Like I Am - You Will Never Be' is the follow-up to their celebrated debut album from 2018. Ball now returns from a holiday in hell, loaded and ready to get ya! In between albums, the band appeared in a Showtime/HBO Nordic TV series and contributed an unholy single track to the now infamous and groundbreaking shock book 'Debauched - Witchery & Devilry' that documents occult/satanic sexuality in print. On a deeper level, the band members have gone further to their roots by establishing a secretive coven, purportedly lead by the wicked High Priestess Satana, Dark Lord of the underworld to her followers. Ball worship Satana's womanliness and proclaim that it is by order of her that they have performed, recorded, and released this album. As Ball describes it the whole idea is to "conjure up visions of crimson blood and raw flesh that will permeate the listeners minds and initiate a lustful Luciferian response. Fuck rock init." The striking cover painting was created by the mysterious Finnish artist Heikki Lemmetyinen. It is painted in LSD dipped fluorescent ultraviolet colors to capture some of the turned-on vibes of Ball. Comes in deluxe casewrapped heavy duty vintage style tip on cover sleeve with poster. Limited edition of 400 copies. "This is what black metal would sound like if it was from Detroit '68." ~Jus Oborn (Electric Wizard).

NEIGE MORTE - IIII (LP/DIVISION)

It could be hard to realize that Neige Morte has succeeded in surpassing its previous album without repeating itself. But it's definitely true. Still amalgamating pure black metal hatred with more death metal elements, still displaying insane blast beats and still toying with weird time signature, the band stays loyal to its DNA. But everything here is pushed to the max... maximum violence, maximum screams, maximum noise, maximum strangeness... The feeling of discomfort which stays for long minutes after the album's end speaks for itself... Neige Morte is back, and where it shall pass, nothing is going to grow ever again. For fans of Portal, Mayhem, Leviathan, Revenge, Ildjarn.

OKKULTOKRATI - LA ILDEN LYSE (LP/SOUTHERN LORD)

Second release on Southern Lord and fifth release from this Norse sextet. That's right, six people in the band these days. Darkthrone and The Stooges made a record together and this the result. It has that swagger and rawness that the first Stooges album had and that full on nihilism that Darkthrone had in the early '90s.

PHANTOM DRUID - DEATH & DESTINY (LP/OFF THE RECORD)

"Phantom Druid brings a crushing take on doom's masters of old. Bearing a weight of tone and a classic voice that was tailor made for the genre." ~Shasta Beest/Stoner Hive.

XIBALBA - ANOS EN INFIERNO (LP/SOUTHERN LORD)

Third LP for Southern Lord. More death metal with less punch the floor breaks.

ZOLLE - MACELLO (BLACK) (LP/SUBSOUND)

In an appealing crazy way, Zolle drive their very own noise hard-rock into a "Torche meet AC/DC" corner. Their unique imagery perfectly matches their no limit motto that always comes with powerful drums and mad guitars. In this contemporary, complex and indefinite, spare plates affirm the essential, appearing as furrows of land of the plain from which they come. Being broken, turned, crushed, chopped. Scents and smells merge into a single mass of sound: Zolle.

INNO - THE RAIN UNDER (CD/TIME TO KILL)

After spending a few months exploring their dormant influences, the 4 came to shape a dark, doomish, heavy and progressive sound coming from reminiscences such as The Gathering, Katatonia, Amorphis, Porcupine Tree.

KEMEROV - FMKD (CD/VAULT RELICS)

'FMKD' is the debut album that caused quite a stir and established Kemerov's sound within death 'n' roll circles everywhere. It carries a unique mix of old-school deathmetal philosophy, Black Sabbath riffology and punk attitude.

 

JAZZ/AVANTGARDE

VISHNYA, ALEXEY - HEART (LP/SINCERE SENSATION)

Aleksey Vishnya is known for producing some of the most iconic Soviet rock albums, perhaps overshadowing his work as a solo artist. On this album he is using synths and drum machines which could be found around the USSR at the time - a technological and poetic achievement. Vishnya's vocals float smoothly over electronic rhythms.

Memphis Slim, Johnny Otis and other legends here loosen up to welcome exotic south-of-the-border influences.
