Its been a quiet year on the release front for us. Life just seemed to take over. But thankfully there are things in the wings for the new year which we’re really excited about. Stay tuned…
While I continue to try and digest the Lino Capra Vaccina re-issues, check out these local gems from this year that have been on high-Epic-Sweep-rotate: Jenny and Jade ‘Day Release’ (Stabbies), Totems ‘Totems’ (Prison), Salon Kingsadore ‘Instant Compositions’ (Sarang Bang), SoccerPractice ‘SoccerPractice’, both Musical Electronics Library comps (MEL), Ria Hall ‘Rules Of Engagement’ (Loop), Motte ‘Strange Dreams’ (CoCoMuse), Witcyst ‘Real Folk’ Boxset (End of the Alphabet), Alphabethead ‘Quartz Plumage’, Hasji ‘Grove’ EP (Grow Room), Troy Kingi ‘Shake That Skinny Ass All The Way To Zygertron’, the Bad Tase comp (Chemical Imbalance), The Biscuits ‘Albatross’ 7″ …see you next year
AJ Sharma’s wonderful new album ‘Tabla Diablo’ is out now on Coco Muse Records (who can’t seem to put a foot wrong!). His sparse folk-like songs inhibit their own unique claustrophobic worlds and are filled out nicely by friends and family on this album which is beautifully un-produced by Forbes Williams. This is his first release on vinyl after way too many years. Buy it from the Muse.
There’s a couple of older Epic Sweep releases now available on vinyl elsewhere; check out the Trendees ‘We Are Sonic Art’ on Alberts Basement/Melted Icecream and Piece War ‘Apathy’ on Square One Again Records.
Way too long in the making but its finally here…the Biscuits ‘Rise’ 7″ lathe. More details on the releases page. Be in very quick…
Finally some new music from the label and Wellington ambient drone master, Seht. Check out his wonderful ‘new’ album ‘I Follow The Moon’ on cassette. More info on the releases page. As always be in quick cause there aren’t many of them
The Bent Folk’s first album ‘Why/Liar/Gone’ is out now. Check it out on Ilk Ither. And while you’re there get a copy of ‘I Wish I Was A Sparrow’ 7″. It’s worth it of the B-side ‘I’ll Stop Crying’ alone.
Cookie Brooklyn and the Crumbs have their first album ‘On Television’ out now on cassette on Burning Log. Its well worth the wait. Get your copy here
…at Meow with DEAN and the Golden Awesome…celebrating the soon to be released 7″ Lathe…more soon
