AF URSIN - itinera - LP [La Scie Doree]
179 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.
AKAISHI, TAKUMI - memoria - LP [Art Into Life]
289 SEK
RESTOCK. Brittle and fairly dissonant home recordings of layered hurdy-gurdy and tapes - primitive and slightly melancholic instrumental "songs" that could easily have fitted on the "Svenska Bebadare" tape for instance. If a wasted Tony Conrad did some clumsy sounds and Dusa recorded and mixed in a small rural cabin in the north of Sweden it would become this LP. Both sides are ace but the b-side takes the cake, due the accidental ambient-Whitehouse-esque finish. All jackets are handmade, wrapped in dyed gauze and individual collages, plus insert.
ALFARMANIA - vid somnens sista trad - C30 [Styggelse]
109 SEK
Reissue of a very limited lathe cut, plus a few extra tracks. Postage for one tape is free if ordered with 1, 2 or 4-5 vinyls. If ordering several tapes or CDs - send an email first to reserve and get the postage right - thanks!
ALLEGORY CHAPEL LTD. - without tears: noise in theory & practice - LP [Throne Heap]
99 SEK
So Elden, do I think this is a good album? I actually haven't heard much of his earlier work, so I can't compare, but the start is full of loops and digital swoosh and glitch which leaves me completely unaffected. Some of the original sounds works but this unrelenting use of digital mixing-up destroys the first tracks for me. There are hints of Astro-esque space noise here and there and while the total assembly shows signs of good compositional abilities it just doesn't grab my attention. Strangely enough the little awkward and up-tempo "drugs & sex-club-song" with it's TG rhythm and the last live track with its pulsating and trancelike atmosphere works best. Hoppa alltsa direkt till sida B! The cover must be a "fuck you" to the 00's noise scene in the US?
ALTARMANG - moth star - C34 [Hypnagoga Press]
79 SEK
This brand of swedish dark ambience holds an unavoidable resemblance to the heyday of Cold Meat - five tracks of well calculated, floating veils, overall slightly more melodic than the previous effort, perhaps a little too near Bostrom's other projects to make a lasting impression. I kind of miss the headspin drone approach of the former album. Postage for one tape is free if ordered with 1, 2 or 4-5 vinyls. If ordering several tapes or CDs - send an email first to reserve and get the postage right - thanks! Last copy.
ALTAR OF FLIES - bortom reven - LP [Ideal Recordings]
169 SEK
Kind of "lost" album recorded in 2017, before the brief hiatus. Initially there's some sign of earlier AOF, with slightly playful, wallowing electronic malfunctioning and bamboo/branch crackle but eventually we are hooked in the isolated environment, especially appearent in the title track - some masterful use there of slooow piano loops buried in tape gargle, much like some of David Jackmans early experiments. No crowd-pleasing in sight on this intensive album that reaches far, with seemingly low-key elements. Keep your windows closed this time as there's a lot of detail in the background! On heavy, clear blue vinyl (like the Government Alpha LP on Segerhuva, must revisit that one too, come to think of it...).
ALTAR OF FLIES - rorelsen mellan rummen - LP [Jartecknet]
169 SEK
Gustafssons absolute best work to my ears - from cold, distant rumbling and windswept metallic resonances to the Dillo-esque rougher loopings and manipulations. Unmistakably Altar Of Flies - just on another level. Should be a mandatory purchase for anyone into modern post-industrial music. Even some hints to Nocturnal Emissions "Stoneface" or "Spiritflesh" somewhere in there! One of the highlights of 2016!
AMPH - control - LP [Verlautbarung]
169 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. Edition of 223 copies in printed color sleeves with burnt detail.
AMPH / ARV & MILJO - nordiska ljud nr. 1 - LP [Jartecknet]
169 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.
ANEMONE TUBE - in the vortex of dionysian reality - LP [The Epicurean / Blossoming Fern]
119 SEK
No description available at this time.
AUBE - spindrift - LP [Robert & Leopold]
219 SEK
Reissue of the first G.R.O.S.S. tape and one of Nakajima's first recordings as Aube, and an edition visually faithful to the original cassette. Starts out with distorted drops of water, gradually increasing cacophony, crispy layers that drowns you and it becomes harder to keep track of the individual sounds. There's some air too, fortunately. At the end of the first side we're almost reaching "rubber soles of squash-shoes against the gym floor"-territory. Second side goes into harsh mode immediately with a slightly more hectic pacing and the crunchy intermediate portion where a couple of new sounds steers way is very good. American import so a bit pricey - sorry!
BLADH, MARTIN - study for a theater of cruelty - CD [Annihilvs]
49 SEK
No description available at this time. Postage for one CD is free if ordered with 1, 2 or 4-5 vinyls. If ordering several CDs or tapes - send an email first to reserve and get the postage right - thanks! Will be sent without jewelcase!
BLADH, MARTIN - umbilical cords - CD [Segerhuva]
79 SEK
Segerhuva hereby presents the first solo recordings of Martin Bladh, who also resides in the acclaimed avantgarde group IRM and the more experimental unit Skin Area, both now widely known for their charismatic live-shows. This is a highly personal recording, which takes some firm mature steps further into physical essence and digs deep into the walls of the mothers utero with its hypnotic drones and drenching layers of organic sounds from cymbals, stringinstruments, accordeon and bass, all treated with great care and respect. Instrumental throughout, bicephalous in the way of screeching, shuddering sounds and drowsy in opposition. There is something strangely slippery about the recordings, a frightening, obtuse atmosphere embedded in silk and soft controlled feedback. Receivers take note: fully stunning in retro-spect. Are you in need of fetal life support? Take a journey through the body and experience the monotony and the pain of birth. Postage for one CD is free if ordered with 1, 2 or 4-6 vinyls. If ordering several CDs or tapes - send an email first to reserve and get the postage right - thanks!
BLOD - my beloved daughters - CD [Segerhuva]
79 SEK
At last we are able to present this eagerly awaited CD by Sweden's most hardened sexnoise extremist. No hyperbole needed - if you are at all serious about noise and/or LOVE, you should get this. Guaranteed to leave your eardrums like a pair of flogged ass-cheeks... Sore, numb, and aching for more... Postage for one CD is free if ordered with 1, 2 or 4-6 vinyls. If ordering several CDs or tapes - send an email first to reserve and get the postage right - thanks!
BLOOD OV THEE CHRIST - master control - CD [Segerhuva]
79 SEK
"Master Control was meant to hurt, and it did. It still does. Now 20 years later it comes across as a work of true and deeply original vision. Even better than the first time. Obviously it takes its departure from the Iphar/Whitehouse/Broken Flag-tradition, but rapidly takes a weird turn and ends up somewhere else; at the very edge of a completely unknown territory. The unspeakable mad landscapes of HP Lovecraft seems to be one point of reference, snuffmovies by Brazilian deathsquads another. And plenty of attitude in between. Sure, it's the work of a mad man, but it's also the work of a stunningly apocalyptic genius; it will likely blow your mind as it did mine. This is extremely powerful stuff. I never quite recovered from this one." - from the liner notes by Tommy Olsson. Most people tend to want to forget, we don't. That is why we have chosen to re-release this killer tape. Master Control was originally released as an ultra-obscure tape back in 1988, and listening to it now, it is clear that it has stood the test of time, and sounds just as raw, visceral and bloodthirsty as it did back then. We are not re-releasing this because someone involved got famous doing folk music years later, no we do it simply because we think it deserves to be more than a rumour at the outer fringes of lunatic Norrland. This is how we remember music from when we were kids -- dark, obsessive, and frightening as hell. Master Control contains the original c-60 plus a 10 minute bonustrack recorded in 1988. Postage for one CD is free if ordered with 1, 2 or 4-6 vinyls. If ordering several CDs or tapes - send an email first to reserve and get the postage right - thanks! Will be sent without jewelcase!
BLUE CHEMISE - flower studies - LP [B.A.A.D.M.]
199 SEK
Repetitive piano with a bit of field recordings and droning string-accentuations, with the occational weird, skew little melodies thrown in (has me reaching for the forgotten last Novy Svet cassette). All titles responding to different plants, and flowers in particular - I can't but help to wonder if the theme or music came first? Not that it really matters. The strength here lies in it's non-complexity, it's lighthearted and not quite fragile nature. A short and intimate album for daydreaming, just as the theme's beauty suggests.
BOMB THE DAYNURSERY - primitive perversions 1981-83 - 4LP BOX [Cold Meat Industry]
749 SEK
No description available at this time. HEAVY item! Postage for the box alone is 99 SEK inside Sweden / 195 SEK outside - if ordering other items as well, shoot me an email as you could add a couple without changing the rate.
C.C.C.C. - test tube fantasy - extended edition - LP [New Forces]
209 SEK
Expanded reissue of this old seven-inch EP on Ant-Zen - can't compare with the original right now but starts out trying ideas before the fun starts. This material is a live recording from 1993 (remastered by Hasegawa in 2020) which really shows the group dynamics present - four people and rather identifiable sounds, amidst the slithering mass of ecstatic noisewash. There's some moments of paradisiacal clarity here, courtesy some angelic voices. On clear vinyl in silver inner + printed outer cover true to the original sleeve.
CHALK, ANDREW & VAN LUIJK, TIMO - skagafjordur - LP [Faraway Press]
199 SEK
Music recorded live in 2018 to accompany a film by Peter Hutton. Frosty radio static and bowed guitar to washes of slow chilling organ tones that float between suggestive landscape gazes and peaceful explorations. A lot more coherent than many of their collaborations as Elodie. Vinyl version of a limited tape, with completely new artwork and inserts.
CLEW OF THESEUS - the death urge - LP [Verlautbarung]
159 SEK
Two long tracks of organic, brooding drone with raw, darker undertones. Bleak and unsettling ambiences with a distinct oppressive, monotone edge, fitting nicely somewhere in the mid-80's L.a.y.l.a.h. catalog. A challenging comment on the nihilistic state of the world today. Side B a re-release of one of the tracks from the very limited tour tape from 2009. Edition of 215 copies in printed brown cardboard sleeves with insert.
COLLEY, JOE - psychic stress soundtracks - DLP [Misanthropic Agenda]
299 SEK
Colley's sound is hard to pin down - it always raisens my heart rate, so INTENSE might be the magic word - you're literally sitting on needles. One foot in the 90's academic microsound-world, but probably too difficult for that audience with its abrupt transitions and deeper static. I would go as far as to say its not primarily about "sound" but actual electronic "events" related to the title. From increase, sudden change, to de-escalation. You'll find comfort in the surgical precision and moments of mental clarity only to fall back into distress. Considering the album cover art i'm guessing "self eradication" would be key words to solve the puzzle? In gatefold packaging. Last copy.
COLLIN, JON - music from cassettes, etc. 2008-2017 - LP [Fordamning Arkiv]
209 SEK
Perhaps an oddball in this mailorder, Collin's wide brand of guitar-based music has been a long time favorite here. From low-key, slow tempo acoustics, through electric and noisier, almost free-jazz moods to folk-ish controlled feedback tones. As the title suggests this album is made up of tracks from small editions. Music for summer, dusty days in isolation.
CON-DOM - how welcome is death to i who have nothing more to do but die - LP + ONE-SIDED LP BOX [Tesco]
439 SEK
Mike Dando returns after several years with a new work and a closer look on the slowed down process of dying. I will spare you the details but will just mention I think this is some of his strongest works to date, with a slight departure from the earlier power electronic assaults where focus instead lies on longer tracks with slow upbuilding tension, let alone the anguish of living in the end. The sounds herein often also feels directly related to the theme. Packaged in a sturdy pro-printed box with the one-sided LP having an etching, plus 24-page 12" booklet in color full of lyrics and pictures. The original front cover sticker is instead inside the box so you can attach it on the front yourself. Normal postage rates does NOT apply for this item (weighs almost 1 kilo without packaging) - please inquire!
CONTRASTATE - the illusion of power - CD [Old Europa Cafe]
129 SEK
This new work alters between both the typical and atypical for Contrastate - we get both slightly majestic openings, spoken vocals, occasional rhythmic sections kicking into their very much electronic soundscapes, but also new approaches to sound and composition. Overall the material is far away from any "industrial" tradition (albeit containing some harsher and intensifying moments) but more so akin to "Todesmelodie", in that it focusses on fragmentary collage work or even short medleys (although less drones), so direction is a bit in the clouds. It's not necessarily a bad thing. As with their last album on Tesco it takes a few listens to grab ahold of the album as a whole, but approach with an open mind and you will be able to enter. Experimental ambient in the true sense of the word. Postage for one CD is free if ordered with 1, 2 or 4-5 vinyls. If ordering several CDs or tapes - send an email first to reserve and get the postage right - thanks!
CONTRASTATE - recorded evidence II - CD [Black Rose Recordings]
119 SEK

CONTRASTATE - an exercise in defascination - YELLOW 7" [Black Rose Recordings]
79 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.
CONTRASTATE - no eden without annihilation - LP + CD [Tesco]
199 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 - regiment de rapaces - LP [Segerhuva]
139 SEK
Segerhuva proudly presents "Regiment de Rapaces" - the re-issue of one of our personal favourite recordings from the 90's - CONTRASTATE's "Mort Aux Vaches" - a live in studio recording for Dutch national radio from 1995, originally released on Staalplaat in 1996. Formerly a CD, now available again as a 180-gram vinyl in a matte black and white cover with a new title and all new artwork made specifically for this release by their long time collaborator Ben Hughes. Contrastate were one of the few groups which had the ability to truly spellbind - bringing a dramatic state of both euphoria and utmost grief while maintaining full control of the senses. This particular recording was one of their more aggressive ones in terms of vocal delivery and lyrics - much akin to Test Dept. in their heyday. Their usual paradoxical and often humourous texts here took a obvious global turn of perspective with statements delving into mass mentality and the negative aspects of waging war. Musicwise a traditional strange, glowing mixture of ritual ambient atmospheres, cascading guitarwashes and tension-building structures. With this re-issue we hope Contrastate will find some new listeners and grow a bit outside the traditional boundaries of industrial-tinged gothic culture. Let the legend of the seven dancing cows entice you - ENJOY! Edition of 300 copies.
CONTROLLED DEATH / EB.ER, RUDOLF - death ceremonies - LP [Cold Spring]
169 SEK
Rudolf plays organ, abuses a violin and babbles in the same way the possessed girl in the "Exorcist" does - all tracks seems more or less of different takes of the same track, themes coming back and forth. There's some passages here with heavy rain sound and demonic voices that makes me think of a white noise version of black metal. Abrupt cuts, twig whipping and field recordings with very good vinyl sound. The flip has Masonnas new side project Controlled Death which is primitive lo-fi analog synth tones and distorted vocals buried in the mix. The sound is thin, with a slight Slaughter-esque influence present - these short tracks feels more like he's trying out ideas which doesn't come out fruitful - while the old school sound should appeal to me, these pieces just don't speak to me.
COURTIS, ANLA & MENCHE, DANIEL - cuspa llullu - LP [Moving Furniture]
189 SEK
Two sidelong collaboration tracks of organic debris, metallic drones, manipulated field recordings and tastuful transitions - all of which melts into creatures of unknown origin. Upon the intercourse you have to watch out for the slow animal roars (or a retarded brass band rehearsal, whichever you like) made from downpitched drills, while the cyclic background submess gets you in the right state. Second side appears more active with its clanging metal rods and blowing sounds from a dome, ending delightfully with spacious feedback and intense noisy rubble. Absolutely fantastic LP with evocative artwork which accentuates the "living" nature of the recordings.
CROENE, FREDERIK - cul de sac - LP [Cortizona]
219 SEK
Piano music, abstract but never too complex - different moods with emphasis on the, hmm... nostalgic? His touch is softly dramatic with a whiff of hypnotic undertones - filling the sound spectra without maudlin rubbish. Thick vinyl, insert with liner notes by Croene himself. A very enjoyable album which comes very much recommended!
CROENE, FREDERIK - f.c. me fecit - LP [B.A.A.D.M.]
189 SEK
Three delightful organ works, recorded at the St. Peter's church in Gent/Belgium. Not overly academic, or religiously tinged either for that matter, and on the right side of musical development, i e pretty far from say Mr. Nitsch's droning and minimal arbeiten. Comes very much recommended. In thick, pro-printed covers.
CROENE, FREDERIC & VAN LUIJK, TIMO - voile au vent - LP [La Scie Doree]
179 SEK
Fusion of darker academic pianowork and more musical krauty, organic elements. Should work great to some old silent experimental horror movie. Last copy.
CRYPTOPHASIA - world of illusory. world of pain - LP [Cloister Recordings]
249 SEK
Once in a while I actually get surprised by a new act - this was one of those occations. I can't find a better description than atmospheric experimental electronics - loops, swaying synth and horns, with occational vocals/samples - i'm getting a slight German/Galakthorrö vibe coupled with later day, calmer Irm-material. Looking backwards but still has a very modern outlook. Further on harsher territories are explored, muffled but not massive industrial in the vein of certain Grunt or Anenzephalia. I like how all these compositions vary and keeps one's attention. Golden vinyl in a lavish gatefold sleeve, all inside a orange outer plastic sleeve.
DEAD SHALL NOT HAVE DIED IN VAIN / DYSTHYMIA - split - 7" [Diophantine Discs]
19 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. Last copy.
DEATHROES - inhuman comedy - LP [No Rent]
199 SEK
A start of shrieking feedback bleeds into cascades of heavy electronic rain and layers of blistering turbulence, all bursting in slow, monolithic motion. I'm sure there's also demonic voices somewhere here too, drenched in delay and other effects. Completely suffocating on higher volumes. Comprised of both live and studio outtakes, edited in 2010, released now. Some deeply fried horror noise, this one!
DICKSSON, G. / BLODVITE - nordiska ljud nr. 2 - LP [Jartecknet]
189 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 - eponymous - LP [Sentimental Productions]
199 SEK
As my CD-R of "Eponymous" is withering away, here comes a much welcome re-issue of the 1998 material on limited white vinyl and in a tasty silver cover. Dieter Muh in heavy sampling mode, both machinery and voices take active part as base structures - it's dense but not overtly dark, industrial but not filthy. The atmos here is not too far from Deutsch Nepal around "Benevolence", but with a slightly less emphasis on space and mushrooms, more mature, balanced and less things going on. Good stuff indeed. Back in stock.
DIETER MUH - stockholm monsters - LP [Bootleg]
99 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.
DOGPOP - popgod - LP [Zaetraom]
99 SEK
First album, recorded between 1995-2003, cold and effective minimal electronics. Well structured and thought out, perhaps a little bit too much focus on the steady beat sometimes for my taste but "Eyes" make up for it. Side project of Anenzephalia and Thorofon for those who might not know! Last copy.
DRONE-MIND / MIND-DRONE VOL. 3 - various artists - LP [Drone Records]
99 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. Last copy.
DRONE-MIND / MIND-DRONE VOL.1 - various artists - LP [Drone Records]
99 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 / ESPOSITO, MICHAEL / Z'EV - there must be a way across this river / the abject - LP [Fragment Factory]
99 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. Last copy.
DODGRAVAREN - s/t - C42 [Tjacktapes]
79 SEK
Full recording of the infamous grave-digger radio portrait, in parts featured on the classic Dagcenterpobeln seveninch b-side. A sweet/hilarious/frightening listen, complete with daily sound intermissions. All in swedish naturally! Postage for one tape is free if ordered with 1, 2 or 4-5 vinyls. If ordering several tapes or CDs - send an email first to reserve and get the postage right - thanks!

EDWIGE - the inconsolable widow thanks all those who consoled her - CD [Segerhuva]
49 SEK
From the original vinyl issue: This is the result of the collaborative work between three of the world's most militant harsh head loyalists. Edwige combines the filthy brutality of Texas' MANIA, the unflinching noise-wall onslaught of Canada's THE RITA, and the ferocious Harsh Noise Purity of Sweden's SEWER ELECTION. EDWIGE is a savage, testosterone-fueled tribute to the one and only EDWIGE FENECH - all time queen of European erotic and thriller cinema. We are very proud to present this LP, filled with the sleaziest filth-ridden walls of noise possible. The grooves of this vinyl are encrusted with pure hellish sonic ugliness of the highest order. Limited edition of 500 copies. Postage free if ordered with any amount of 12" vinyl.
EIDNES ANDERSEN, KRISTIAN - antichrist (original soundtrack) - ONE-SIDED LP [Cold Spring]
119 SEK
Official soundtrack to the Von Trier film from 2009 - I guess the main feature here is the two Handel pieces (orchestrated opera with harpsichord), Eidnes' own compositions are shorter snippets of disharmonic and slow moving orchestrals - dark, deep and frightening with occational feedback tones. Etched b-side - what a waste of plastic, ha ha!
ENKLAV - 2 - LP [Jartecknet]
169 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 - heavy duty - CD [Influencing Machine]
99 SEK
Totally mandatory CD re-issue of one of the absolute best tapes EVER in the noise/industrial community, originally released on Cthulhu Records in 1989. Violent, chaotic (still room to breathe) and improvised sound of destruction but still strangely controlled dynamics that change constantly, made from home made noise-instruments and lyrical hysteria. Postage for one CD is free if ordered with 1, 2 or 4-5 vinyls. If ordering several CDs or tapes - send an email first to reserve and get the postage right - thanks!
ENVENOMIST - chariots - LP [Segerhuva]
139 SEK
These strangely cinematic and abrasive droning landscapes of impending doom made up from analog synths are the work of David Reed, for some perhaps known from the plausible Luasa Raelon project. The sparse, cold, minimal pieces reminds us of early industrial-era electronic artists such as Maurizio Bianchi and Lustmord, but also gives hints to the works of Klaus Schulze and early Tangerine Dream. Without doubt presenting a vile and nightmarish vision of a territory where noone can be trusted and there's nowhere to hide - this certainly is bleak post-apocalyptic music. Limited to 300 copies in pro-printed black/white matte covers.
EVAPORI - dia-logos I, dia-logos II, dia-logos I+II conclusion, imitation - LP [Fragment Factory]
199 SEK
Newest recordings from Mr. Peters (and guests!) - once again surpassing himself with this mastodon work of orchestral exhibit, starting out with intense and disharmonic strings with a certain stickiness in the sound. Eventually calming down into key-rattling and low voices. Enter lively experimental vocal stutter-blaarghs in the vein of Jaap Blonk with percussive cracking, creaking and wild cut-ups which hangs on the brink of being annoying but somehow stays on the right side of sanity. Theres a clear symphonic overtone in the linear drones and metalwork which is impressive, while certain digital crispy streaks feels a bit tedious - might be exactly his point though? Extremely well produced and absolute top quality regarding overall sound on this vinyl slab. Recommended for brave souls among you!
EVAPORI - karka - LP [Walter Ulbricht Schallfolien]
179 SEK
So, could Oliver Peters top the excellent "Fumes" LP? I had some fear he would have gone all digital dishwasher glitch recent years, as there was already signs on that album. There is indeed a clear use of computer, but mainly used as cutting and mixing facility - sometimes fast and energetic, but the "orchestral" parts and field recordings slows down the whole. Very dynamic and surprising electroacoustic music that actually can tell a, albeit slightly schizophrenic, story. Very good! Last copy.
GRAUSTICH - morality ends - LP [Tordon Ljud]
179 SEK
Synthbased power electronics / industrial, without vocals but with quite a lot of treated sampling work - slow modulation of distorted backgrounds, restrained bass-pulses and occational driving low-key drum-machinerhythms. I've heard some praise for this album but after trying several listens I must conclude that it is not for me. I hear strong echos of the first Operation Cleansweep LP (especially on side B) but without the oppressive atmosphere and crushing monotony of that album and while I certainly can accept the old school "aesthetic" I miss something at least remotely adventurous. First LP from this project. Last copy.

GUSTAFSSON, MATTIAS - franvarande - LP [B.A.A.D.M.]
189 SEK
I'm not following instructions as its freezing outside but I can probably relate to the original idea having the windows open when playing this album anyway - first side is comprised of one long track of a sad floating, orchestral tape/synth loop and rain. In comes the weather vane screech of amplified cymbals and buzzing bees. I am thinking about those early unreleased David Jackman tracks when hearing this, though not really playful or even experimenting, rather a Tarkovskij-esque landscape is unfolding. Previously released on tape in 2012 as Ornaments. The b-side is in many ways the opposite - four tracks of piano and tapemusic, perfectly executed in both length, pacing and diversity. Ace use of wind! Recommended.
GUSTAFSSON, MATTIAS - nattmusik - LP [B.A.A.D.M.]
189 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.
HAARE - tantric noise - LP [Influencing Machine]
229 SEK
Ilkka seems to be on fire right now with albums coming out every second months it seems - I have not heard much recent material but this LP is perhaps more tantric than noise, with it's darker, slower but still screechy undertones, lending several moments from the rustier parts of the Taj Mahal Travellers and also introducing new instrumentation. Not always following a straight line to nirvana! Nice presentation as always, pro-pressed sleeves with insert. US import so a bit pricey, sorry!
HELLVETE - sint-denijs - LP [Blackest Rainbow]
99 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.
HELM - the hollow organ - 12" [Pan]
99 SEK
No description available at this time. Last copy.
HIVE MIND - elysian alarms - LP [Difficult Interactions]
199 SEK
Not many groups hoisting the industrial banner these days - here we have at least a good example of classic Tesco worship (+ own voice, naturally), meaning synth and filter excursions (+ slight metal screech/shed field recs). The first side is actually not far from Mnem's CD on Kaos Kontrol, although different sources - beautiful layerings and the same bleak outlook. Just zone out and let that immersion haunt you good. The second side offers more variety - pulsing backbones and necrotic fumes to more melodic oscillations. Can't relate the titles to the sounds but the visuals are pretty spot on dystopia. Recommended!
HYDRA & DEATH SQUAD / BARRIKAD - neurology 2 / entropic society - 10" [Segerhuva]
49 SEK
Barrikad is the sound of young Sweden. The raging youthful energy of anarchist noise as presented by Barrikad. Three tracks of splendid energetic white-hot scorching electronics dealing with the frustration and despair of what passes for everyday life for modern man in a consumerist society. This is the vinyl debut for Barrikad, who has so far released one great CDR on Freak Animal. Neurology 2 is most likely the last of Death Squad's recordings. The most current name has changed to MK9. Hydra is Greg Scott who was also a member of the power electronics project Final Solution from New York. Vocals by G. Scott and electronics by Death Squad. Neurology 1 was originally released in 1994. Almost ten years later the second installment is realised. Recorded in Poughkipsie NY at The Space. The content is an audio document of aggressive and passive emotional extremes. From night time rants to letters left on door steps. It becomes an array of sound and audio suffocation as each item becomes cataloged and addressed. Extremely bass-heavy and dense electronics gnawing on the top of your vertebrae, a worthy conclusion to the saga of the criminally underrated genius of DEATH SQUAD. Wake up... Please ask regarding postage rates.
HYMNAMBULAE - andarlih - C36 [Hypnagoga Press]
79 SEK
Six tracks recorded in an underground church in northern Sweden, gently gliding ambiences with a slight broken or damaged tape loop-feel. A slightly musical narrative, orchestral overtones with a dreamlike character from zither and harmonium. There's a number of contrasting factors here - the sound is full of air and light, but also encapsulated and dark due the recording facility. While their last album (centered around voice recordings by Gunnar Ekelof) was excellent this one comes across as potent but slightly less engaging overall. Postage free if ordered with 1, 2 or 4-5 vinyls.
HANDER SOM VARDAR - aristokrat - LP [Jartecknet]
169 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 - lost in spice - LP [La Scie Doree]
199 SEK
Latest installment of this Heemann / Van Luijk duo, and very much akin soundwise to the last Af Ursin album, which means an all electronic work - I would figure Heemann's role here is to add more pure drone elements, slow rise and free-form narrative. The cover picture sets a mood and I would say laying down on the back in your skiff, looking at the shifting night clouds over your head, the small lulling waves rocking the boat would set you off in the same way this does. Always with a whiff of burnt kosmik synth around, so don't expect anything too soft! Seems to be getting better with each listen, too.

INCAPACITANTS - onomatopee suicida - LP [Total Black]
189 SEK
To paraphrase Namanax: cascading waves of electronic turbulence - just gape and munch into the fun! Mostly full speed - throw everything into the cauldron and add some sprinkles. There's some slight chapped digital effects, like slot-machines, used in the studio tracks that i'm not too fond of but the main course is of course the live track from 2019 - organic and orgiastic harsh noise the way it should be done. You can almost smell the electronics fry. The cover is a tribute to their earlier Alchemy CD-series and includes an A2 color poster.

INCAPACITANTS / SEWER ELECTION - mental derivatives / shining obsession - 12" [Segerhuva]
99 SEK
WAREHOUSE-FIND - LAST 2 COPIES AVAILABLE! This track by the Incapacitants was originally intended for a compilation on Lasse Marhaug's Jazzassin label a few years back. For some reason this never appeared and we thankfully got this in our shaky but amused hands. So, what did we get? A weak an'ol' Japanese couple bursting out with a singalong? HELL NO. This is a trustworthy show-off in approach. The standard trademark frenetic vocals, yes. An intense organic and thick pile of nonsensical bodymassage from start to end, yes. Fuck it, the pure energetic electronic sound of Toshiji Mikawa and Fumio Kosakai remains unrivalled to this day and you can never get enough wiping out your state of being. Dan Johansson, the man behind the moniker Sewer Election has gained quite a lot of attention in the noise community the last years. Perhaps not for reinventing the genre (who's interested in that anyway?) but fittingly licking the balls of frustration forward into perfection. This particular track shows a continuation of his latter day style = a monotonous noise wall intertwined with serious brainmelting stasis, skipping the intense cut-up style of the early days altogether. As fine as a bottle of Baska Droppar, rippled with metamphetamine from the gutter. Oh, let's not forget the Usual Unneccesary Information Section: First intended as a split 10", however we all agreed the extreme nature of these sounds demanded nothing less than a 12" vinyl on 45 rpm for a maximum quality experience. Color covers, 500 copies pressed. Enjoy!
INTROVERTED FORMULA - various artists - DLP [Jartecknet]
249 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. Back in stock!
IRGUN Z'WAI LEUMI - klirrfaktor - LP [Verlautbarung]
159 SEK
New recordings from the un-prolific IZL unit a massive 45 minute track divided into two parts of minimalist industrial lofi-muzak. Throbbing rhythms and bleak processed feedback sounds. All is cold structure and dying signals of electricity. No human interference - only steel and sweltering death. Earlier releases by IZL on Hatband and compilation appearances on Cold Meat Industry and Segerhuva. Edition of 286 copies in colour printed sleeves.

IRM - indications of nigredo - 12" [Segerhuva]
99 SEK
On the theme of alchemy and the topics of shame vs. bodily self infliction, IRM makes way for a new start after the inspired "Virgin Mind" double-disc set from 2005. These are new recordings with the new member Mikael Oretoft joining on bass. Two long tracks - the first being an intense up-building, deep pulsating number with both spoken and rough vocals, volcanic exaggerated bass noise and doom-laden atmosphere. The second more of an aftermath with its downspiralling, almost dreamy character of echoing tones, ripping clangs and chilling audio-schmerz. In total over 23 minutes of music in a glossy colour sleeve with gross artwork and a small insert. Edition of 500 copies.

JARL - parallel / collapsing - CD [Segerhuva]
79 SEK
Erik Jarl is the hunk of burning love normally found twiddling the knobs and tilting the amps in Swedish band IRM. This CD, titled "Parallel/Collapsing" contains the most recent solo recordings from Erik, is a powerful example of his highly innovative music. The piece is divided into seven parts that seamlessly blend into a monolithic symphony of subtle complexities. Warm, yet sinister, electronics performed by a man who really cares about sound. "Parallel/Collapsing" is a perfect example of Jarl's musical sensibility. Definitely not to miss! Postage for one CD is free if ordered with 1, 2 or 4-5 vinyls. If ordering several CDs or tapes - send an email first to reserve and get the postage right - thanks!
KALLABRIS - music for very simple objects - 10" [Substantia Innominata]
79 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. Last copy.

New CD-version in of this all-star commando-group.

In completely new packaging with some extra tracks. Postage for one CD is free if ordered with 1, 2 or 4-5 vinyls.

KROKTA RUM - tankar & syner del II - LP [Jartecknet]
169 SEK
Second and final (?) installment of this project of Viktor Ottosson (Blodvite etc.) and Jesper Canell - fairly dry sound of stones and other organic debris, drived through reel-to-reels. There's a definite asperger syndrome-feel attached to how the sounds has been approached. Not for everybody but still enjoyable! In folded covers, with small folded insert.

LAST DOMINION LOST - abomination of desolation - LP [The Epicurean / La Esencia]
179 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 DOMINION LOST - snowdrops from a curate's garden - LP [The Epicurean]
179 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 DOMINION LOST - towers of silence - LP [The Epicurean / Silken Tofu]

LILLE ROGER - lp7 - LP [Cold Meat Industry]
179 SEK
NEW. Last nail in the Lille Roger box-coffin - a very primitive live show from 1984 filled with samples, screaming, cymbalhits and drummachine + a long evocative version of "My lucky day" which makes me relate to BDN's "Fourteen", already here we can hear the use of monotony to expand the greater good. A must for all fanatics!
LUMINE - quiet ends - LP [La Scie Doree]
189 SEK
OK - this was hands down the ALBUM OF 2019 for me. While the previous effort was really good the slight screechy Organum-ness a la "Ikon", the isolationist narrative, coupled with a nightmarish 70's synth feel makes this a clear winner. Both the dimly lit cover pictures, the titles and the sounds made me relate this as a far-out soundtrack for Lovecraft's "The Shadow over Innsmouth". Perfect in all regards. BUY WITH CONFIDENCE.

MAEROR TRI - language of flames and sound - CD [Old Europa Cafe]
129 SEK
One of the harsher works by one of my favorite groups of all time. Aiming to reach parts of the brain that perhaps remain locked or unstimulated, with deep trance-inducing multi-effected guitars in rich reverbs and echos. We are served both intense rhythmic structures and more purely dizzy ambient excursions, here always with a rough edge - not much romantic coziness found here. Strange as it may seem, kind of like the ultimate mix between Skullflower and Aghast, with a slice of early 80's bleak Manchester. Industrial meditation at its finest! Packaged in a brainshaped foldout cover. Postage for one CD is free if ordered with 1, 2 or 4-5 vinyls. If ordering several CDs or tapes - send an email first to reserve and get the postage right - thanks!
MEGAPTERA - a horse in the eye is part of the art - LP + CD [Cloister Recordings]
209 SEK
I confess i've never really liked Megaptera, but I was actually positively surprised hearing this new album of retro-industrial! What we have here is a heavy beast of early 90's classic CMI-worship - AND IT WORKS. Churning drummachine rhythms, looping minedrills, buzzing synths and samples a la Archon Satani's "Mind of flesh and bones" or a less chaotic Vivenza. Just avoid the "Second recovery" track on the b-side which just doesn't hold the same quality as the others. With bonus CD, a live recording from 2014 in Berlin.
MENCHE, DANIEL - melting gravity - LP [Sige]
209 SEK
US import of this absolutely thrilling album of lulling bells, ebbing and flowing sustained strings and underlying bass tones. A kind of distillation of everything I am searching for in industrial-tinged drone and one that actually lives up to its title. In parts actually akin to the also excellent Andres Krause LP on Streamline, though recorded from an entirely different perspective and theme. Fantastic stuff which shows that Menche is still at the top of his game! Leave this world for a moment.
MENCHE, DANIEL - primal fictions - LP [Ferns Recordings]
189 SEK
You never know what to expect from Mr. Menche and that's a good sign! This particular LP has two long tracks. The first has a slow animal quality to it thanks to an upbuilding background rattle, amidst ringing tones and manipulated strings. A swaying hypnosis sets in and the concluding screech does the trick. The flips starts off a bit too "Ryoji Ikeda" but eventually dry leaves and waterdrops over sheet metal makes way for the maelstrom drone that does not dissapoint with its frightening beauty. Damn great! Cover with minimal information.
MERZBOW & P-ORRIDGE, GENESIS - a perfect pain - LP [Cold Spring]
169 SEK
No description available at this time.
MIRROR - some days it rains all night - LP [La Scie Doree]
199 SEK
A real surprise - a new album with the Chalk / Heemann boys? Two sidelong pieces which appears have been recorded live in studio. An insidious sound, hovering just above ground, from what I think is e-bowed guitar, low screech cymbal abuse and swooshing synths - gliding slowly over into firmament-drone. Mirror's strength seems to be intact - the ability to invoke a surreal cosmos which feels homely but still unknown. Overall sounds more akin to their early work like "Ringstones" or "Eye of the storm", than their later, and not so good period. A very much applauded comeback suitable for late night listening with evocative artwork by Chalk. Second edition on black vinyl.
MNEM - elyktrion - LP [Verlautbarung]
199 SEK
LP version of the new album - in intentionally damaged covers with two inserts, 104 copies. "Imagine an isolated room where a long distant past still circles the space in the shape of unintelligible sonic fragments. Slowly deteriorating audial messages that fruitlessly search for their now absent receiver. Elyktrion takes off where Hegonon ended while broadening the palette and revealing previously unknown passages in the abandoned WW1 bunker that is Mnem."
MNEM - hegonon - LP [Sentimental Productions]
199 SEK
Continuing their successful brand of industrial loops, feedback and hypnotic rumble. Should be in everyones home. Muffled and dry machinism in absurdum, a less straightforward effort than the "Golyma" album on Segerhuva so roll up your sleeves, put the volume to 11 and break into the nefarious world of MNEM - congratulations, you'll never come down! This is a feast of decaying electronics who strive to live on, just as top S*Core-material in their heyday. Allow me to rephrase: MANDATORY. Subtle, apt artwork. Third restock! Last copy.

MNEM - engrama - LP [Segerhuva]
139 SEK
This material is a re-release of their first 10" which originally came out on Kaos Kontrol in late 1999, limited to a mere 100 copies, and as this work certainly is one of their best we promptly decided to make it available again, this time with a long bonus track recorded in 2000. Undoubtedly calmer than the "Golyma" LP yet still intensive experimental industrial with post-electroacoustic undertones. Organically flowing drones and hypnotic, grinding loop sounds of vintage analog sound processing via old reel-to-reel tape recorders and treatments. Some even time-stopping moments included here. Limited this time to 270 copies in black sleeves with cut n' pasted front and back covers.
MOLJEBKA PVLSE - tamon - CD [Segerhuva]
79 SEK
Mathias Josefson's one-man-project Moljebka Pvlse from Stockholm, Sweden here stretches the boundaries of ambient drone-music, perhaps a surprising listen for those accustomed to his other recordings put out by Eibon and Cold Meat Industry to name a few. This work to a larger degree features a sound palette unarguably harsher than his other recordings. Tons of frenzied, computerized, but crispy clear distortion flows out over you like an ice wall and leaves the listener in a nervous state, begging for a warming aftermath. Static walls of rampant treated guitars and billowing droney backgrounds screaming endlessly out over the cold plains of the earth. Ambient gourmets also get their piece, though somewhat in a more experimental way. Full color digipak. Postage for one CD is free if ordered with 1, 2 or 4-5 vinyls. If ordering several CDs or tapes - send an email first to reserve and get the postage right - thanks!
MOSS HARVEST - ferric memory - LP [Aught Void / Deep Sea Mining Syndicate]
199 SEK
Short tracks, or themes delicately woven together of broken melodic loops in layers of grit and magnetic scrape, though the overall feel is vast and majestic. I sense a scandinavian suicidal tone, looking at the visuals (the lure of water) and hints to both Dead Letters Spell Out Dead Words and strangely enough Raison D'etre's concluding moments. I find myself coming back to this album, though i'm not completely sure why. Very limited LP, in propressed covers and inserts. For those who can see summers ending already.

MSBR - structured suicide - LP [Urashima]
209 SEK
Reissue of 1993 tape released on Tano's own label - trademark crispy MSBR sound coupled with quite massive cavernous ambience on the first side, not particularly harsh (fairly easy on the ears) with moments of air and restraint - a lengthy free-form track with no real compositional value but that's also its strength. The other side is merrier, loops of an almost funky charachter cuts through the mix and adds to the overall pressure. Ends with two shorter tracks of early industrial and tape experiments, far from his other works. Good imitation cover of the layered oily newspaper tape package! An important document which shows Koji's creative vein from different perspectives.

NILSEN, BJ - focus intensity power - LP [Moving Furniture Records]
189 SEK
While not being overtly excited of Bennys last work on Mego, this one however succeeds in going both backwards and forwards - got the static and minimal tension from works like "North" and still not feeling nostalgic. Recorded in a dutch electronic music studio, this is a field recording-free record where using he's instead using modular synthesizers, tone generators and test and measurement instruments. There's still plenty of drone but of a colder, mechanized variety. A damn good album and i'm happy to see Benny on the top of his game again!
NILSEN, BJ, HAMANN, JUDITH & BERG SIGMARSSON, SIGTRYGGUR - heiligenstadt - LP [Fragment Factory]
189 SEK
Slow-sonic long-form alchemy from these champions of drinking (dunno about Hamann though?). Starts out in a wilder way mixing-wise - an intense, shifting and perverted play of slightly humorous proportions eventually makes way for a slower, layered cello drone, where the other sounds collapses and disappears along the way. A mightly fine album of both gentle moments and sitting on pins and needles. Front cover drawing by Christoph Heemann, well suited as the main drone here feels quite inspired by his musical works. Tops!

NURSE WITH WOUND - rock n' roll station - DLP [Abstrakce Records]
299 SEK
Oh yaa! Maybe as the title also suggests, this is Mr. Stapleton and Mr. Potter in a more "musical" mode, ok I would't call it rock n' roll but a start with cheap drummachines working, hypnotizing and lulling male spoken words and female whisperings + the usual overall surreal sounds. Transforms slightly into a more loungy, orgiastic instrumental mode with tribal drums and digiridoo wailing. It's mainly the first LP of the two that feels really focused but I'm liking this one more than I should in regards to the sounds. I don't have the original version but this new remastered re-issue appearently has a bonus track which must be the NWW version of later-day, less funky Tom Waits. In nice printed color covers, with letterpressed obi strip plus insert. Last copy.
OCHU - unproduktiw - MLP [Verlautbarung]

ONDA TIDENDER - night of the experimental film III - C34 [B.A.A.D.M.]
99 SEK
Music recorded live in 2016 to accompany films by Carolee Schneemann and Takahiko Iimura. O.T. = pseudonym for Erik Enocksson. Repeated words to reverbsoaked metalscreech (akin to certain live works by Contrastate actually) and light organdrones, the flip continues spirit but a synthetic piano line and diffuse vocals works its way into and takes over, reminding me of a non-distorted Dead Letters Spell Out Dead Words to some extent.

ONDERA, YORIS - disease of rectum - LP [Tesco]
99 SEK
So who gave a rats ass about this album when it came out in the early 00's? OK, the title IS good, I can give you that + the fan pic on the back. I did still buy almost everything Tesco released at the time but I imagined there could not be high interest for this either then, or now. Made by former T.G.T.V. (are they worth checking?) member Ondera, I put this in the same bin as Dieter Muh and some of Deutsch Nepal's work, mainly for the rhythmic parts. Industrial music with a lot of samples and strangely compelling atmospheres. Not flawless all around, but still leaves a genuine impression, and unlike everything today. In those special paper glued covers Tesco did back then.

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]
79 SEK
This CD sees Origami Replika (a now defunct part of the ever changing cultural Origami collective/phenomenon) made up by three of Norway's most diehard noise heads -- Lasse Marhaug, Tore H. Boe, and Mads Staff Jensen. Recorded in 1997, this effort is entirely based on sound sources from the back catalogue of Merzbow. With no back-bending, knee-scraping humility, and with a pure love for all source sounds, Origami Replika have shaped classic Merzbow sound into all-new compositions. These are innovative and highly potent re-workings of the harsh sound waves, recommended to all those who still have a healthy addiction to the Merzbow sounds of yesterday. Thick and meaty, the blasts emanating from the speakers are filled with lusty, fetishized, organic heavy noise and experimental Dadaism, ready to be devoured by the faithful disciples. Originally planned for release on another label, and now finally unleashed on Segerhuva, this is a CD that has been tried and tested over and over again. These recordings, created almost a decade ago, have been remastered by Lasse Marhaug, and it is safe to say that this CD has stood the test of TIME. After nine years, it sounds remarkable - a solid chunk of the classic, living breathing Noise Object that some call religion. Bottom line -- the NOISE FETISH is still very much alive and well. This time it comes from a somewhat unexpected source. Indulge! Postage for one CD is free if ordered with 1, 2 or 4-5 vinyls. If ordering several CDs or tapes - send an email first to reserve and get the postage right - thanks!
O YUKI CONJUGATE - peyote - LP [B.F.E. Records]
199 SEK
As I sold off my CD-version of this album several years ago one might wonder why on earth I decided to add this new re-issue to the mailorder. Giving it a new chance with open ears now - heavy on the percussion and a tad more complex than "Into dark water", less heads-up-in-the-clouds-atmospherics. In parts like a Central African mid-80's Muslimgauze with it's airy, static drumming. Stands as my least favorite of their earlier work, but still a competent and enjoyable release. In luxurious die-cut cover with two 12" color inserts.
PAIK, NAM JUNE - liljevalchs 1961 - C50 [Tjacktapes]

PHILLIPS, DAVE - sixth mass extinction - LP [Total Black]
179 SEK
Phillips, one of the Schimpfluch spearheads, presents a nightmarish sound made from piano strikes, orchestral strings, field recordings and a frightening, dramatic mixing technique. The use of vocals or spoken word, either caveman style, primal screaming or played backwards adds to the total real life spectacle which does not set humanity in high regards. In embossed covers with eight page A3 newspaper featuring texts on environmental breakdown.
RED WINE AND SUGAR - dogs, blood, storms, spiders - LP [Index Clean]
179 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.
REGIM - stabbed by the blind - LP [Segerhuva]
139 SEK
First LP from Lirim Cajani after a few tapes! Aggressive, blistering and structured noise with vocals on some of the tracks. More songoriented and varied than before and better off. In black/white matte covers.
RILEY, TERRY - keyboard study 1967 - C43 [Tjacktapes]
79 SEK
Well i'll be damned! A 43 minute long hammond study recorded in Stockholm 1967 - i'd like to think of this as Boyd Rice doing loops of Bo Hansson solo, but this is a continuous work - minimal, sure, but small variations throughout. Fantastic work, very much suitable for headphone play! Postage for one tape is free if ordered with 1, 2 or 4-5 vinyls. If ordering several tapes or CDs - send an email first to reserve and get the postage right - thanks!
RITA, THE / TRERIKSROSET - s/t - LP [White Centipede Noise]
179 SEK
Capt'n CRUNCH is here again! Sam mixing Tommy and ZK's material live in Berlin autumn 2018. The tempo here is almost slow to mid with uprising bursts of more uncontrolled TRR-feedback, leaving space to breathe. In the middle we are interrupted by some distorted classical piano and then back into juicy snap n' crackle heaven. But wait, we have a full Tommy side here too - here's fast and furious for ya! No news here, just glittering feedback mayhem with the right amount of punch, patience and penis for you to endure. As ever, play LOUD. Comes with bonus A3 risograph poster, courtesy of Mr. Carlsson.
RJF - greater success in apprehension & convictions - LP [Harbinger Sound]
169 SEK
New vinyl reissue of the original 1983 LP, with new extensive liner notes by Tommy Carlsson and Kristian Olsson, complete with printed inner sleeve and A3-poster - I am not going to babble a lot on this material (read the description of the CD below) but let me just say that it is primarily a reaction to the "industrial" music in Sweden at the time. Full of distorted cheap guitars, anguished vokills, tape experiments and drummachines in an uncomfortable mix.
RJF - greater success in apprehension & convictions - CD [Segerhuva]
79 SEK
The most extreme and outstanding music from Sweden. Desire, despair, disgust, destruction & death - The Sound of RJF. This is the real thing, no false grace or hypocrisy. RJF get their inspiration from the sickness of mankind. This is not about music, this is survival and fighting back. A cock down the throat of morality. A knife in the back of society. RJF create their own values. Control & Knowledge. From the original 1983 press release. We might not have put it as poetic but when we found the old press release we couldn't resist the beauty of the text. The sounds on this disc drag you all the way back to the chilly gutters of early 80's fierce electronics. Menacing and mechanical noises, grating rhythms pick on your nerve endings, this is a sinister reminder that something was alive back then, something that is missing now. This CD-reissue of the old LP has been re-mastered from vinyl since the master tapes are missing and is packaged in a 12-page booklet A5 sleeve with lots of pictures, liner notes by Kristian Olsson and original art made by Leif Thuresson. Edition of 500 copies. Postage for one CD is free if ordered with 1, 2 or 4-5 vinyls. If ordering several CDs or tapes - send an email first to reserve and get the postage right - thanks!
RODEN, STEVE / SMALL CRUEL PARTY - strategies obliques o - WHITE LP [Ferns]
199 SEK
These two seems to be a good match for a split! Roden starts off using modular synth with dancing looped patterns, all glittering ice and vocal fragments that flicker in and out. As the side progresses it becomes quieter, more fragile with strummed stringinstruments and rubbed objects. Great stuff! Overall, time is an important factor in these pieces, or "songs" if you want, as they are kept short which works in their advantage. SCP then, three tracks where the longer centrepiece with its slight cozy train rhythm and close-ups of stone against the rail is the clear winner - features that same timelessness that characterizes much of Zoviet France's work. Otherwise we have delayed and eq:ed vinyl crackle, plus an alien trying to play a melodica in a toolshed. Unfortunately the cover (and printed innersleeve, mind you) is not using its opportunities - no pics. All copies comes with bonus Steve Roden 3" CD from 2009 (also on Ferns) to make up for it though!
SERRUYS, MATHIEU - skin / glove - LP [B.A.A.D.M.]
199 SEK
Great new LP from one of the B.A.A.D.M. label bosses, mostly brittle analog synth work in a quite personal introvert vein - I once thought of his work as a modern Les Joyaux De La Princesse around "Aux petites..." devoid of all grit and political overtones. I relate his sound to romanticism, emptiness, longing and cautious approachings with some tracks adding sounds of creaking wood and water for extra dynamics. Worthy to note is also the pacing of the album. Regarding the cover art - as the first LP showed a bit of his face and now this second LP shows his naked bust, I am a little worried what the next LP cover will show? Recommended.
SEWER ELECTION - kassettmusik - LP [Fordamning Arkiv]
209 SEK
Reissue of the long sold out CD on Ideal Recordings. Represented a new chapter in Dan's oevre, including the now semi-famous vomit-loops that divided a generation of HN-Johansson-fans. Well, that part is not present the whole recording either, but the rest is pretty (at times almost annoyingly) minimal underwater tape-murk ad infinitum. Acquire with due caution! Big size insert with extensive, indepth liner notes written by Chris Sienko.
SEWER ELECTION - internal - LP [Jartecknet]
169 SEK
Another LP from Dan the Man! A totally different experience than the Ideal one released earlier this year, perhaps the cover text sums it up best - "sound pieces for feedback and various objects as magnetic tape loops through amplifier" - OK, sounds good, doesn't it? This is a kind of "love for noise" album, never harsh, brutal, heavy or suitable for headbanging, just NOISE with structure - I imagine peeling away all melody and rhythm from "White Light/White Heat" latecomers and you might be close. There are elements of drone occuring throughout and eventually taking over, mind you. Still trying to figure out that cover pic... Play this one loud too! Back in stock!
SEWER ELECTION - nara - LP [Jartecknet]
169 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.
SFAR - sprickor - LP [Jartecknet]
169 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. Back in stock!
SHARON'S LAST PARTY - blue light and blue eyes - 7" [Segerhuva]
49 SEK
Two tracks from this very promising new Swedish act. You may have heard their contribution on CMI's "Nihil" compilation 2LP - if not, GET IT! The music is powerful electronics and noise firmly rooted in the "old school" (argh) industrial spirit. To be blunt, this is just as good as TG always promised to be, but never managed to be on vinyl. Excellent vocals on the A-side, and a dark brooding instrumental track on the flipside. Buy, motherfucker, buy. Postage free if ordered with 1, 2 or 4-5 vinyls.
SHREDDED NERVE - in the shadow of what never was - LP [Chondritic Sound]
189 SEK
First LP from this relatively new US act, first side comprised of three parts which flows between reverberating, concrete loops, chugging static synth and airy tones plus feedback. The flip has four tracks of varying intensity and holds adulterous kinship to both Japan's S*Core and unrelenting swedish tape noise, but still with its own identity. Recommended. In golden and printed black jackets, with insert and download coupon.
SKIN CRIME - stories and studies of strange things - C30 [Self Abuse]
99 SEK
This recent tape of Patrick O'Neils Skin Crime-project has both synth-based ambience with otherworldly creatures penetrating that core and more effect-laden drones and loops. There is a slight rumbling present but this one is mostly about the small sounds in the background, whether its unidentifiable subterranean munching or fright-inducing alien communication. Good one, that's worth the price for the cover alone. Postage for one tape is free if ordered with 1, 2 or 4-5 vinyls. If ordering several tapes or CDs - send an email first to reserve and get the postage right - thanks!
SKIN CRIME - the house on the cliff - LP [Self Abuse]
189 SEK
Cooking and droning feedback making way for a DEEP mid range crunchfest. What makes this LP (most notably the a-side) so hot and juicy is the slow upbuilding structures, the austere restraint and the little pauses in intensity. The flip is wilder and there's some serious japanese smoke coming out of the speakers here. Slaps! Clocking in just a little under 30 minutes in total - the perfect length of tortorous noise and god-forsaken electronics. You won't be dissapointed. Can't shake off the Scooby-Doo feel of the front cover though. Ace!
SMELL & QUIM - cuntybubbles - LP [Cheeses International]
199 SEK
This UK group has forged their own brand of eclectic and, at times, gross noise and deranged electronics - always balancing between mere stupidity and something even worse. This new work shows a good variation of styles, not so much of the full front harsh noise, more of their experimental side with almost tribal percussive bits and Sylvie & Babs-type of sampling. With abusive and sexual overtones, naturally - haven't you seen the cover? There's a lot of porn sampling ad nauseum and growing tension in the loops, you're pounded into submission in the same way Con-Dom worked sometimes (a Leeds thing?) - I did not know snare drums and creaking beds work so well together. A good, indecent listen for the whole family!
SRMEIXNER - ten thousand ways to die - CD [Segerhuva]
79 SEK
Stephen Meixner (ex-Contrastate) has deepened his exploration of spaghetti western thematics on this album. The tracks herein take as their inspiration the ideas and themes behind the making of the films and the era in which they were made. While the Italo-western genre is often focused on violent dynamics, Meixner's music focuses on haunting and sparse atmospherics yet keeping with the film genre's tendency to always keep things interesting by throwing in both unexpected and unsettling elements. Field recordings, samples and digital manipulation makes up the core of the album, with a distinct, smoothly composed desert flavour. Edition of 300 copies in digipak cover. Postage for one CD is free if ordered with 1, 2 or 4-5 vinyls. If ordering several CDs or tapes - send an email first to reserve and get the postage right - thanks!

SSHE RETINA STIMULANTS - kusa'i - LP [Influencing Machine]
199 SEK
Re-issue of 90's G.R.O.S.S. tape - high and mid frequency industrial noise not relying on brute force but details in the sound design. Very much enjoying the slow tempo on this LP, actually a quite relaxing listen despite the sound-relation to both a space-version of "Master Control" and the shrieking Italian classics. I'm also thinking lovers of the Sir Ashleigh Grove CD on Siren might enjoy this one too, if you can stand the bit more "room" in sound. Highly recommended.
STEIN: INTERPRETATIONEN EINES GEOLOGISCHEN MATERIALS UND SEINER SYMBOLIK - various artists - DLP + 7" [Verlautbarung]
499 SEK
One last copy of the thick granite slab version - only available through pick-up in the Stockholm area - weighs 3,5 kilos! A truly solid compilation on the Verlautbarung label dedicated to the theme of stone and geological processes. Very tasty selection of artists, mainly from Sweden, both old gubbs in the gem and newer talents. Sliding somewhere between heavy industrial poundings and more minimal dronings with a few also working with stones as source material. Classy cover and presentation, coupled with a 16-page A4 booklet in colour. Will NOT be sent anywhere!
SWEETNESS WILL OVERCOME - various artists - CD [Segerhuva]
19 SEK
Here it is: the first Segerhuva compilation, a massive 74-minute budget priced CD with a 20- page booklet in jewelcase. The CD is filled from beginning to end with a strong and exciting line-up of both well known and newer groups, mainly from Sweden, but also with contributions from Finland and Japan. We are thrilled to be able to present a solid mix of sounds, from the most punishing ultra-harsh electronics, via the primitively thuggish all the way to the cocktail-sipping arty. Yes, we have room for all - please join the party. "Sweetness Will Overcome" features a wide range of artists making it a diverse and interesting affair. Our tribute to a stagnating but in a strange sense healthy scene! Without further preaching: all served with pleasure and pain. All tracks are exclusive. Postage for one CD is free if ordered with 1, 2 or 4-5 vinyls. If ordering several CDs or tapes - send an email first to reserve and get the postage right - thanks! Will be sent without jewelcase!

TESTICLE HAZARD - fifty-sixty - LP [White Centipede Noise]
189 SEK
The Keranen-Marhaug free-form pork machine is back with a "new" album recorded in 2009! A mid range feast, very active and lively stuff between chaotic and playful. Livefeel japanoise from two operators who works the controls in the right tempo. No rigid cut-ups here, just everflowing sprinkling of sonic rubble. Not only are we served some excellent colorful noise, but a full color cover and yellow vinyl with green swirls. Tack sa mycket!

TESTICLE HAZARD / GOLDEN SERENADES - morning star / evening fix - LP [Segerhuva]
139 SEK
On this split LP, Testicle Hazard (Lasse Marhaug + Tommi Keranen) deliver a side-long orgy of blistering fuzzed-out heaviness. This is a duo that has very quickly proved that they are indeed capable of producing some truly ear-shattering noise bliss - two noise maestros doing what they love and live for, and you can feel privileged to indulge in the result of their hard work. Golden Serenades (John Hegre + Jorgen Traen) immediately locks into a devastating groove - for lack of a more suitable term - and a terribly convincing assault of metal clattering and a non-stop moving mass of forceful sonic onslaught of the highest order. When these Norwegian lads team up, you can expect nothing less than noise nirvana. Printed black/white matte covers - edition of 300 copies.
THOUGHT BROADCAST - abduction - LP [Chained Library]
199 SEK
Short, exact and calculated tracks of lo-fi looped pulses, slow rhythms and ventilation melody. Despite the old-school industrial sound context present here, it manages to sound both warm, modern and bereft of human life. Imagine a mix between the more experimental side of Anenzephalia (sans vocals) and the dryness of later day S*Core and you might be close. Good album!
TILLY, THOMAS - script geometry - DLP + CD [Aposiopese]
199 SEK
No description available at this time. Count postage as two LPs. Last copy.
TORBA - musique inconcrete - LP [Fragment Factory]
179 SEK
Despite the rather bland cover, here we have a very good album filled to the brim with tape noise and field recordings of the pleasant but introvert kind. This can perhaps be lumped together with fellow rough-composers Mercury Hall and some of Mattias Gustafssons work, at times they reach the same dreamlike, crackling ambiences. I am thinking how the sounds are chosen - candywrappers, water in bowls and black metal distorted beyond recognition in an elegant mix, where the mixing comes across as nothing short of perfect. Torba seems to focus on the background, the distant, the unnecessary and convoke a hazy, volatile reality of noisy textures. Play with headphones, some of the magic is lost and disappear in the household when played through speakers.
TOUKASEIBUNSHI - stratosphere sound - LP [Art Into Life]
199 SEK
R.I.P. Mr. Iwata! Original text: OK - the cover for this LP was not really overwhelming but little did I know... Old Japanese project now resurrected, based around sounds from the guitar and effects, like recorded in a small bomb shelter. Lots of echo, reverb and air, but at the same time dripping of old school industrial noise atmospheres. Parts may be compared to S-Core's soundworld, however easier to grasp. Comes in clear vinyl and photo print on transparent film. One of 2014's biggest surprises here, a positive one if you haven't noticed!
TOY BIZARRE / EMERGE - s/t - LP [Attenuation Circuit]
139 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!
TREPANERINGSRITUALEN - algir; eller algir i merkstave - LP [Cold Spring]
169 SEK
I was not too keen on the Kainskult LP but this one I can enjoy - chimes are struck, sudden hard hits, bowls singing in a vast space and occational horn sounds with hints to more trad. dark ambient from deep gongs and bowed metal, totally free from disturbing vocal outbursts. The counterpart side goes further into something, adding birds and outstretched tones. Still minimal but a bit more structurally potent with just a few percussive bits at the end. Printed innersleeve with evocative text in swedish which accentuates this quite impressive album nicely.
TREPANERINGSRITUALEN / BODY CARGO - s/t - LP [Autarkeia]
179 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.
TRERIKSROSET - venal - C32 [Chefsideologens Bolag]

TRERIKSROSET - kristen musik fran ragsved - LP [Harbinger Sound]
169 SEK
Always hard to comment on your best friends new record but I would like to chime in to the fanatic choir on this one. First side starts abrasive, tempo almost slow but punishing, feedback on good levels - second track faster, holds ones attention and segments where it sounds like the pedals are being fucked big time. B-side even more over the top harshness with slight metallic undertones - spastic hallelujah intensity! Just like the Incacacitants, Tommy delivers sound with pretension without being pretentious - only the love for non-restrained noise, with moderate layering. You are about to enter the living noise organism.
TRERIKSROSET - s/t - CD [No label]
119 SEK
CD-version of a very limited 60 minute / 2 track cassette from 2019 (not the Hatband one, sorry). In very minimal packaging, just like the tape. Postage for one CD is free if ordered with 1, 2 or 4-5 vinyls. If ordering several CDs or tapes - send an email first to reserve and get the postage right - thanks!
TROUM - vorbei der tod - LP [Raubbau]
209 SEK
As ever a guitarbased work (plus other acoustic instrumentation), in parts nearing a heavy but still in ways a melodic archaic mood. Light and delicate - deep and rich, in slight orchestral harmony - filling out the space with both airy, heavenly and even symphonic drones. Dark washes of sound to zone you out but featuring enough drama to keep you awake. A fine, cohesive album from this long running German duo which felt familiar but still strangely remote.
TROUM - acouasme - DLP [Silken Tofu]
99 SEK
PLEASE NOTE! All of these has a pretty severe corner damage hence the price! 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.
VAN LUIJK, TIMO & CROENE, FREDERIK - ipnopedion - LP [La Scie Doree]
199 SEK
Timo has done it again! This is an odd one and no noise in sight, just slow and mesmerizing synth background, piano and bells accompanying Mr. Zanfrettas speech during hypnosis. While the live a-side is tops, what really shines here is the flip with its "fin de siecle" opening, dissolute organ and silently windswept swooshes, or slowed down waves...? Fantastic stuff which demands several listens to grasp fully! Classy, minimal presentation with insert.
VAN LUIJK, TIMO & VANDERSTRAETEN, KRIS - costa del luna - LP [La Scie Doree]
179 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.
VERTONEN - broken air - C60 [Helen Scarsdale Agency]
99 SEK
A lovely cassette of radio interference and manipulated electronic signaling, slowly increasing intensity toward robotic meltdown which is hastily discontinued, followed by crisp tones in a ripe, Colley-esque way. There's long form drone of the electronic kind, coupled with ragged passages of the unwanted, the malfunctioning. Sounds not actively seeking your attention. Bloody great! Postage for one tape is free if ordered with 1, 2 or 4-5 vinyls. If ordering several tapes or CDs - send an email first to reserve and get the postage right - thanks!
VERTONEN - 11° 22.4'N 142° 35.5' / HACE/26,250'E - LP [CIP / Misanthropic Agenda]
169 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! Last copy.
VOGEL, MICHEL & CORNER, PHILIP & NEVILLE, PHOEBE - musiques de ailes / winged music - LP [Ricerca Sonora]
99 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.
VOLTIGEURS - carrion - LP [Second Layer]
59 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! Last copy.
WINCE - the older generation - LP [Tordon Ljud]
179 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.
YOUNG HUSTLERS - hiding in the open - LP [Skuggsidan]
189 SEK
Swedish analog synth-based power electronics with mostly heavily effected vocals in both swedish and (from what I can gather) english, rather monotonous backgrounds and pulsating rhythms with slowly modulating sounds on top. This whole thing reeks of an "fuck all"-mentality with it's quite raw and overloaded tunes and titles. Could maybe be the successor to Survival Unit - a call to personal arms. Includes large sized insert and A3 poster.
ZOVIET FRANCE - what is not true - ONE-SIDED LP + LP [Vinyl On Demand]
299 SEK
Reissue of two live sets recorded in the UK in 1993 which shows the transition period of ZF after Robin Storey left, leaving the rougher structures and tribal elements behind and entering a clearer ambient direction using different equipment. A more finely tuned and laidback result with clouded vocal/pitched choir drones, crunchy and dry electronic crackles, strings/flutes but with a sway abyss floating around the corner. All in all a good album featuring enough majestic washes of sound (driven forth by isolated background rhythms) and astral projections to get you lost inside.
ATTESTUPA - musik for tomma rum - LP [Jartecknet]
169 SEK
New recordings from the Gothenburg all-star team in classy covers. Musically back and forth between the earlier slow, depressive "rock"-mode with synthmelodies(big focus here)/percussion/guitar/bass/vocals and their respective outlook with a lot of raw tape manipulation work. A lot more coherent to these ears than earlier LPs.
