    To The Death 84 (Awaiting Repress)

    Voivod originally formed in 1983, with a weird hybrid of thrash metal and punk, a sound that made them stand out as a unique band from the beginning. Still together after almost 30 years, having made more than a dozen albums and toured the world, the Canadian group reaches back to the beginning of their career for their first Alternative Tentacles release.


    Voivod began as four friends who met in high school and decided to get together to play some heavy music. Growing up in Northern Quebec in an aluminum factory area called Saguenay (which they dubbed Morgoth Land), they shared a liking of Venom, Motörhead, Tank, Discharge and GBH, as well as obscure prog and krautrock bands like Van Der Graaf Generator, Faust and Can. They were scared of the threat of a nuclear war and Reagan-era concepts such as the Strategic Defense Initiative, and had a dystopian view of the future.


    To the Death 84 is 70 minutes of loud, blistering metal/punk. Recorded live in the bands jam space in January of 1984 with an old tape recorder and a couple of microphones, it nonetheless sounds great and hits as hard today as it did back then. This demo tape was sent to all the fanzines the band knew of at the time, and has circulated among collectors for years. The lineup for these recordings was Snake (Denis BÉlanger) on lead vocals, Piggy (Denis DAmour) on guitar, Blacky (Jean-Yves ThÉriault) on bass and Away (Michel Langevin) on drums. The track listing includes songs from War and Pain, their debut album, and six others, including a Mercyful Fate cover and two Venom covers.

    Cyrk

    A new force in song craft, Cate Le Bon resides in Cardiffm Wales's French quarter and befitting a songwriter who only writes in the dark, her music is a heady and personal Gallic stew of equal parts Nico, Malkmus and the chronicler's own observations on the impossibility of existence. Drawing on her experiences of the last year, Cate created collection of pop nuggets imbued with the playfulness of Faust and Syd Barrett and the tropical melodies of Os Mutantes. Existential word play and fuzz fused guitar lines tear through like an angry bee in a CAN on 'CYRK'. Currently on tour w/ St. Vincent.

    Faust

    Available on vinyl for the rst time!


    Randy Newman's Faust is a 1993 musical based the work on the classic story of Faust. Newman borrowed elements from the version by Goethe, as well as Milton's Paradise Lost, but updated the story to the modern day and infused it with humorous cynicism. In this retelling, God and the Devil ght for the soul of Henry Faust, a student at the University of Notre Dame. Vocal duties are co handled by James Taylor, Elton John, Linda Ronstadt, Bonnie Raitt and Don Henley.

    Speculation (On Sale)

    Speculation is the new, perfectly titled, To Rococo Rot album, recorded in part at Faust's studio. To Rococo Rot, the trio of Stefan Schneider and brothers Robert and Ronald Lippok, debuted just over a decade ago at the point where digital precision and instrumental abstraction were harnessed into new directions. Their sound is seemingly contradictory: instruments and technology, analog and digital, contemporary and primitive, detached and accessible.

    Star Destroyer

    On their debut full-length, this NY-based quintet have demonstrated their penchant for the electro organic; seamlessly blending the sharp and gentle, like a chain gang draped in organza. Think Can or Faust all mashed up with the personal disco of Arthur Russell. Think of the electric organ of Terry Riley's Shri Camel, slowly morphing and perpetually in motion, but remaining in step with a guitar-less and Moroder-charged Sparks. And think of a more composed Dead C, where Michael Morley sings about Big Thunder Mountain while holding a beach ball in one hand and fending off the digital shards of musique concr?te humming around his ears with the other.

    Live in Wiesbaden 1972

    Red Colored Vinyl - with yellow label in PVC sleeve with black lettering


    Playing on the same scene as bands like Amon Duul and Can, German prog rock band Guru Guru was formed in 1968 by one of contemporary music's most talented drummers, Mani Neumeier who, in addition to playing drums, was also the band's vocalist / frontman. By the time this album was recorded in 1972, bassist Uli Trepte had left the band to play with Neu! and Faust and was replaced with Bruno Schaab of Night Sun (the stellar German prog metal band). This early live album, recorded in Wiesbaden, Germany in front of a crowd of dedicated fans, is essential listening, featuring two extended tracks, the 28-minute "Oxymoron", and the 23-minute Guru Guru classic "Baby Cake Walk".

    Hoi' Polloi

    Remastered Limited Edition Reissue

    Only 500 Copies Pressed


    Family Vineyard and Folk Evaluation proudly present the first authorized LP reissue of Richmond, Indiana's fabled Hoi' Polloi. The band's lone 1972 self-titled
    album, recorded over spring break at Earlham College by means of bouncing
    between two stereo tape decks, is a fantastic collection of country twangers,
    breathtaking singer-songwriter material, and bizarre tape cut-ups. With five songwriters in the band, what could have felt like another grab-bag student compilation instead feels like lost tapes of Emitt Rhodes hanging with Crosby, Stills, Nash
    and Young while Faust producer Uwe Nettlebeck makes a guest appearance in the
    control room.


    Remastered from the original ¼" tapes, this deluxe vinyl edition comes jampacked with extras: Extensive liner notes featuring Patrick 'The Lama' Lundborg's
    2003 conversation with the band (expanded with newly conducted interviews), a
    digital download of the album featuring the original stereo mix of "Satisfaction
    Guaranteed" and a wealth of bonus material from the band members' vaults,
    including rare cuts from Earlham's annual student-produced "Crucible" LPs and
    a collection of never-before-heard live recordings. Edition of 500 copies with reproduction of the original xerox insert

    Black Mountain (10th Anniversary Deluxe Edition)

    Limited Edition Grey Vinyl


    It's only a clichÉ because it's true, but the greatest records are timeless. Black Mountain's self-titled debut
    album is just such a record. It is a new classic rock, with reference points arcane and clear, its sound fresh,
    unfamiliar and irresistible. The work of a small collective of musicians operating from Vancouver, Canada,
    far from any industry buzz but firmly in the eye of their own storm of creativity, Black Mountain's debut
    album was, of course, a beginning, but it also marked an ending.


    Begun as the fourth album for Jerk With A Bomb, the 4-track bedroom project turned non-rock band led
    by Stephen McBean that preceded Black Mountain, the songs grew from skeletal sessions cut by McBean
    and Josh Wells and honed on the road in empty North American clubs along with Amber Webber. "We'd lay
    down the bed tracks, the guitars and drums," remembers McBean. "Matt [Camirand, bass] joined, and we
    changed the band name after a dream of how life could be different in the B section between Black Flag and
    Black Sabbath. Josh's roommate Jeremy [Schmidt, keys] was lurking about. We asked him if he wanted to
    add some synth bleeps or whatever. He came back with all these orchestrated keyboard parts, and we said,
    'Oh, you should probably join the band now.'"


    They cut the album at the Hive and their jam space in Vancouver, recording in "a big cement room with a
    tall ceiling, nice boomy acoustics, lots of natural reverb, on an 8-track reel-to-reel tape recorder." During the
    sessions, these elemental first tracks found their true shape: wry & giddy, hypnotic & gracefully heavy, the
    dark and powerful blues, and mysterious chugging murk.


    The album's initial success saw the band take to the road, leaving their Vancouver enclave for stages across
    the world. "It felt like there was a real explosion of excitement at shows," remembers McBean. "We wouldn't
    write setlists, we'd just feel the energy in the room and call things out, jamming on songs like 'No Hits' and
    'Druganaut.' It was a good time for live rock'n'roll: DJ booths were being transformed back to drum risers,
    people were digging 20 minute heady jams and there were bands like Comets On Fire and Oneida out there
    who we felt kinship with. I was into Faust and Amon Duul but had no idea of the scene of modern bands
    doing that stuff. And then we met those bands, and it was cool. And then we went on tour with
    Coldplay and the adventures continued.


    Their jaunt across the world as guests of perhaps the biggest band in the world is a tale for another time,
    perhaps: the start of Black Mountain's next chapter, and all that followed. For now, savor the compact,
    spacey brilliance of that cosmic, heavy and subtle debut album, expanded now with a raft of delicious bonus
    tracks scavenged from the Black Mountain Army archives.

    Take Refuge In Clean Living

    Remastered For Vinyl From Original Recordings


    Opening with a nod to Syd Barret's Pink Floyd (Piper at the Gates of Dawn) Take Refuge In Clean Living begins with morse code and drops into one of the heaviest slow-burn grooves in the Grails canon. Sounding something like Hawkwind and Ravi Shankar scoring Blade Runner, it's lysergic and earthy for Grails in a new way. The rest of the record moves from blissful Eno-inspired ambience, to epic Morricone rock hymns, to an unexpected take on a Ventures tune that returns the listener to the very beginnings of instrumental rock music. The touring incarnation of Grails in 2006 and 2007 included good friend and drummer Ben Nugent, allowing Emil Amos to switch to 3rd guitar for the band's live instrumentation. The DNA of this guitar-heavy line-up allowed for new kinds of arrangements and bigger melodies. In early 2007, the then-5-piece entered Steven Lobdell's (Faust) Audible Alchemy studio to document the new songs written with this augmented ensemble. Those sessions make up Take Refuge In Clean Living.


    Remastered for vinyl and reissued for the first time in nearly a decade, Take Refuge In Clean Living sees Grails pulling back their already wide lens on multiple sonic horizons. Grails often take what would sound over-ambitious on paper and make it sonically flow in an effortless, laid-back style. The band is defined by exploration and they've created a template for themselves where any style or method can be ingested to reap legitimate rewards. Take Refuge In Clean Living rightly suggested that Grails wouldn't run out of ideas.

    A Period of Review (1975-1983)


    Expert Mastering By Greg Davis, Liner Notes By K. Leimer And Dave Segal


    Double LP Packaging Features Unique Reverse Flap Exterior, Full Color Eurosleeves, &
    16-page Booklet


    For the third installment in RVNG Intl.'s archival series, the tape is wound back to 1970s
    Seattle, home place of ambient music savant K. Leimer. A Period of Review (Original
    Recordings: 1975-1983) unearths unreleased portions of Leimer's vast archives and
    highlights the work of a self-taught visionary whose use of generative compositions ferried
    his music to infinite resonance.


    Kerry Leimer was born in Winnipeg, Canada. He was raised in Chicago before his family
    permanently settled in Seattle in 1967. Kerry's teenage interests and artistic experiments
    blossomed from the seductively strange tendrils of Dadaism and Surrealism. In the early 70s,
    Leimer found musical parallels to these visual movements by studying import copies of NME
    and Melody Maker and inquiring with local record store clerks about the exotic descriptions
    he read of Can, Neu! and Faust-innovators who were bringing the wild dictates of 60s art-discourse into music


    The tape-manipulated serenity Leimer experienced with Cluster's II was a key revelation.
    Leimer realized the potential to compose with minimal training and scoured pawnshops
    for cheap instruments and recording equipment to transpose his wayward musical instincts.
    Leimer's sound palette and composition soon refined and heightened with the accessibility of
    dynamic equipment such as the Micromoog and TEAC multi-track tape machines.


    Synchronously, the Terry Riley indebted loop-based compositions of Robert Fripp and
    Brian Eno's No Pussyfooting inspired Leimer to form recursive musical passages of bare
    timbre and melody that would become hallmarks of his sound. "The loop provided an
    instant structure-a sort of fatalism," recollects Leimer in A Period of Review's liner notes. "The
    participation of the tape machine in shaping and extending the music was a key to setting
    self-deterministic systems in motion and held a clear relationship to my interests in fine art."


    The underground music scene of Seattle/Olympia in late 70s was small but seeded.
    The vestiges of prog rock pompously pummeled the few clubs and record shops before
    punk and New Wave became the rage. Leimer sought to support a growing community of
    experimental composers by launching the Palace of Lights record label in 1979 with his wife
    Dorothy Cross (this was years prior to the birth of regional titans K Records and Sub Pop).


    Leimer rarely performed live, averting the litmus of instant appreciation for his solitary
    studio pursuits. Tellingly, the "K." that abbreviated Leimer's first name was a nod to Kafka's
    doomed pariah Josef K (from The Trial and The Castle). This gives a sense of the reclusive
    and literary realm Leimer was fond of working in. Despite his reticence, Leimer's debut 1980
    album Closed System Potentials would reach a receptive audience, and eventually sell more
    than 3,000 copies thanks in part to Cross's persistent advocation to independent distributors
    and magazines.


    A Period of Review focuses on unheard material outside of the work Leimer offered on
    Palace of Lights, though even that music could be considered relatively "unheard." The thirty
    tracks of A Period of Review may have remained a mystery on moldy reels until now, but
    Leimer's entire catalog of generative music remains pristine in its absolute power.


    Liner notes were crafted by Seattle writer David Segal. Top-tier mastering was done by
    Greg Davis, who produced the compilation with Palace of Lights artist Robert Carlberg, RVNG
    and Kerry Leimer himself, who continues making music to this day.
