BRUEDER SELKE - QP 7“ (Oscarsson - The brothers Sebastian and Daniel Selke grew up during critical times – back in the 1980s when the former GDR was slowly starting to dissolve – in the far East of Berlin-Hellersdorf. The newly built prefab estates that marked this area were named with different types: Q3A, QP and QX. From 1959 to 1983 the even more frequently built houses followed in the cross-wall panel construction method. The houses were built with five, eight or ten storeys and, in contrast to the two Q predecessor series in accordance with the building regulations of the time with a lift. This is the first type of house in industrial large panel construction. The individual panel elements completely form a wall of a room. Most striking and visible feature of many houses in the QP series are coloured tiles, mostly white or yellow, to cover the outer walls. The first buildings of this series were built in Berlin between Strausberger and Alexanderplatz, in the western half of the former Stalinallee and also in the Hans Loch quarter.

SEBASTIAN SELKE & DANIEL SELKE - Q3A 7“ (oscarsson - The brothers Sebastian and Daniel grew up during critical times – back in the 1980s when the former GDR was slowly starting to dissolve – in the far east of Berlin. The newly built prefab estates that marked this area were named with different types. Q3A was short for “Querwandtyp Nr. 3, Variante A“ (Cross-Wall Construction). Here, Sebastian and Daniel practiced cello and piano from an early age. In search for a shared musical language, the longtime-collaboration CEEYS was born out of “violoncelle“ and “keys.“ Recorded and mixed at their Klingenthal studio, the EP is a first in more than one sense: using a cello from Klingenthal and handmade synthesizers from Erlbach, the A-side marks Sebastian’s first solo release. Daniel, on the B-side, is playing his restored childhood upright, combining it with a russian altered, organic drone synthesizer. Released in a limited edition of 300 hand numbered 7” copies, vinyl pressing of 'Q3A' comes in a beautifully packed 330g gatefold cardboard case with printed die-cut cover designed by Matthias Rehling featuring a texture by Daniel Selke made with a Reflekta II, assisted and digitalized by Anne Krausz. The 2 double-side printed covercard inserts feature 2 additional photographs by Harald Selke and Gabriele Selke the parents of the brothers made with a Zeiss Ikon and a Reflekta II and include liner notes, dedicated text and credits using 2 original fonts from the Communist-era GDR recommended by Torsten Posselt. The black inner paper sleeve comes including the download sticker with link and code to the digital version of the full EP.) 16.00





CLOAKROOM - Infinity LP (run for cover - colored vinyl - Cloakroom is a brand new musical entity conceived in the harsh rurals of north west Indiana. Doyle Martin, of disbanded pop punkers Grown Ups collaborated with drummer buddy Brian Busch and fellow Region native Robert Merkof. Despite the frantic, fast paced nature of their other acts, Cloakroom rarely touches on its member’s previous work. Instead they are found channeling the visceral vocals of David Bazan, laid over quiet ethereal guitar hums that slowly grow into pounding walls of sound, at times bringing to mind a more stoned, yet delicate Jesu. Undoubtedly, comparisons will be made spanning an array of genres from stoner metal to 90s emo, but what Cloakroom have created with  is a flawless conglomeration of sound that until now has yet to be heard.) 22.00


CRASH OF RHINOS - Distal DLP (lingo - Between 2010 and 2012 a series of incredible records came out. We were in the middle of something that we will hardly forget. Distal by Crash of Rhinos is one of those jewels from that magical period. Written and played by a united, strong, determined band that has things to say and you can’t help but listen to it. Biff, Jim, Bealo, Oli and Draper are true friends. If at some point in your life you have listened to that kind of emo-hardcore with choirs, stalks, melodic guitars and drums played with calluses on your hands, you can’t ignore this masterpiece. We are talking about a big record. In the genre perhaps one of the most important released in the last 10 years.) 28.00


CAT & PHIL TYLER - The Ox and The Ax LP (thread recordings - Cath and Phil Tyler are a pair of lovely folkies from Newcastle-Upon-Tyne (though Cath originally hails from Massachusetts where she played in Cordelia's Dad). This is their third album and their first in eight years. Here they further explore their love of traditional songcraft, mountain banjo and Sacred harp singing. ) 25.00


DBH - mass LP (thread recordings - Though recorded in bustling Manchester, dbh’s (who has performed live with Julie Byrne) third album is much more reminiscent of where it was mastered, in the Outer Hebrides. Instrumental folk guitar tracks with a deftness of touch, Mass is for exploring big empty spaces on the back of a donkey rather than trying to get the Christmas shopping done at the Arndale.) 25.00


DBH - mood LP (thread - dbh made quite a stir both within and outside of the confines of these walls with his third album Mass so we're very happy that we have another chance to hear his second album again which has been re-pressed onto vinyl and CD. The musician (also known as Dan? Dave?) is adept at finger picked solo guitar pieces that owe as much to Vini Reilly as they do Michael Chapman.  ) 25.00


EASTERN REBELLION - s/t LP (tidal waves - In 1975, four legends teamed up and gave birth to one of THE best rhythm groups of the 1970s…four musicians that had played music at the highest level all their lives and gained their status as both stand-alone artists and important sidemen. Each of them had participated in many of jazz’s great moments and all four shared the ability, documented on many albums, to inspire their fellow musicians to even greater heights. In 1975, the EASTERN REBELLION collective was born.On saxophone, we have GEORGE COLEMAN (born in 1935) the self-taught saxophone maestro from Memphis who (after working with Ray Charles) played in B.B. King’s band in the 1950s and in Miles Davis’ quintet in the 1960s. Coleman played on four historical Miles albums (including ‘My Funny Valentine’) within one year. George Coleman went on to perform and record with legends such as Charles Mingus, Ahmad Jamal, Idris Muhammad, Melvin Sparks, Nina Simone…and was an essential member of many more noteworthy groups throughout his freelance career. He was named a NEA Jazz Master, inducted into the Memphis Music Hall of Fame in 2015 and received a brass note on the Beale Street Walk of Fame) 35.00


GIOVANOTTI MONDANI MECCANICI - GMM Suite LP (mannequin - Mannequin Records is elated to present for the first time on vinyl the reissue of Giovanotti Mondani Meccanici’s first video soundtrack, originally released in 1984 as an audiotape in less than one hundred copies. Giovanotti Mondani Meccanici (literally Mundane Mechanical Youth) or GMM was one of the most unclassifiable audiovisual experiences to emerge from Italy in the 1980s. Maurizio Dami a.k.a. Alexander Robotnick, a pivotal member of GMM, was responsible for the group’s music output.  Founded in 1984 by Antonio Glessi and Andrea Zingoni in Florence, GMM was an art collective whose production represents the quintessential expression of postmodern transmedia hybridity. GMM pioneered the genre of computer comics, created video installations, developed “multiple identity” performances, and was involved in fashion, media, and music productions, and later on produced cyberdelic environments, artificial reality projects, and proto-memes. Alexander Robotnick’s first contribution to GMM was this soundtrack for the group’s eponymous first video, the animated version of a computer comics they coincidentally published on legendary Frigidaire magazine. Restored by Dami and reissued here for the first time by Mannequin Records, the composition was also split into two “suites” and released as an audiotape distributed by Materiali Sonori, also responsible for other releases by both Robotnick and GMM. Determining in this work is Dami’s adoption of the alphaSyntauri, also known as the first affordable digital synth (priced less than $2000 when it was released in 1980), which was playable through its own software, “alphaPlus,” on the Apple II computer. The same computer was used by Glessi to “draw” the 3-bit strips scripted by Zingoni recounting the joyrides of the Giovanotti Mondani Meccanici, three merciless cyborgs in black suit and sunglasses.) 21.00


GUDRUN GUT + MABE FRATTI - Let's Talk About The Weather LP (rumor rex - Gudrun Gut and Mabe Fratti have worked together on a powerful hybrid album, where taut rhythms fuse with haunted vocal melodies and spoken word, and field recordings meld with extended ambient pieces. As part of Umor Rex’s 15th anniversary, we here present an album that builds a dialogue between two lands and two unique artists. Mexico is the origin and conceptual residence of our label, while Germany is where we produce and manufacture our records (Berlin functions as the center of distribution and logistics, thanks to our friends at Morr Music). The intertwining imaginations belong to German producer Gudrun Gut (Malaria!) —a notable figure of the subculture and the German music scene since the early 80s, and also a founder of Monika Enterprise and recipient of the ‘Listen to Berlin’ Award in 2019— and singer, multi-instrumentalist and composer Mabe Fratti (originally from Guatemala, now based in Mexico City). We knew about "Let's Talk About The Weather" from the beginning, and since the moment Gudrun and Mabe made us part of their project, our excitement could not be greater.) 24.00


HORACE TAPSCOTT CONDUCTING THE PAN AFRIKAN PEOPLES ARKESTRA - the call LP (Available on vinyl for the first time in 40 years, Outernational Sounds presents Horace Tapscott's burning, spiritualized 1978 set, The Call. One of the unsung giants of jazz music, the composer, bandleader, arranger, pianist and community activist Tapscott was the undisputed keystone of the grassroots Los Angeles jazz scene. Throughout the 1960s and 1970s, his radical community arts and music formations the UGMA(Underground Musicians Association) and his protean big band, the Pan Afrikan Peoples Arkestra, were at the epicenter of music, culture, and politics in the Los Angeles area. Hundreds of musicians passed through these groups and played their part. Major figures such as Arthur Blythe, Azar Lawrence, Jimmy Woods, John Carter, Bobby Bradford, Sonny Criss, Ndugu Chancler, and dozens of others all paid dues or just got down with Tapscott, not to mention the core Arkestra regulars who have since become celebrated names; Nate Morgan, Jesse Sharps, Adele Sebastian, Dadisi Komolafe, and Gary Bias, to mention only a few. Tapscott and the Arkestra were down on the ground -- playing fundraisers in parks and streets, organizing teach-ins and workshops for young and old, mixing it with radical theater groups, firebrand poets, political radicals, Black separatists, community groups, and churches. As a result of this grassroots community focus and Tapscott's antipathy to the music industry, the Arkestra didn't record for nearly two decades. That only changed when long-time jazz fan Tom Albach started Nimbus Records. The label was initiated specifically in order to document Tapscott and his circle, and the first three records showcased Horace and the Arkestra. The Call was put together from two studio sessions in April 1978, one at Hollywood Sage and Sound, and one at United Western -- the latter session had the addition of a string section, who can be heard on the moody Cal Masseycomposition "Nakatini Suite" and Jesse Sharp's swinging modal trip, "Peyote Song No. III," with its swirling soprano solo. In keeping with the communal nature of the Arkestra, the other two compositions, "The Call" and "Quagmire Manor at Five A.M." are also by Arkestra members. But at the center of the music is the builder of the Ark, the visionary whose original call to action started a movement whose legacy continues to this day -- Horace Tapscott. Vinyl-only release, 180 gram pressing by Pallas, fully licensed from Nimbus West founder Tom Albach.) 26.00


INDIAN SUMMER -  Giving Birth To Thunder LP (numero - The fourth leg on the early emo table of Rites of Spring, Moss Icon, and Cap’n Jazz, Indian Summer’s Giving Birth To Thunder compiles their complete discography. Emo’s second wave crashed into the Bay Area in the summer of 1994 in a rage-filled capsule of quiet and loud, octave chords, angry sons, Spock haircuts, and screaming. At the eye of this pissed-for-the-hell-of-it storm were Indian Summer. In the quartet’s 12-month existence they wrote ten songs, appeared on half a dozen singles and comps, and played over 100 gigs across the U.S. and Canada before burning out, passing out, and moving out of their Blue House in Oakland. Their hand-screened aesthetic is replicated in alarming detail in the accompanying by 28-page book with detailed liner notes, flyers, and miscellaneous propaganda.) 27.00


KURT VILE - Smoke Ring For My Halo LP (matador - Philadelphia singer/songwriter KURT VILE returns with his second proper album (2008's Childish Prodigy was a compendium of sorts). Smoke Ring For My Halo is a gorgeously layered record. Ranging from the tender breezy folk in "Jesus Fever" to the tuff urban guitar riff of "Puppet To The Man" Vile's distinctive Philly-accented vocal ties together a sweeping & evocative project - a true American psychedelic folk album. This is no pastoral listening experience however - when Vile sings, "society is my friend: he makes me lie down in a cool bloodbath" he sounds both exhausted and distanced from the ringing harmonics of his guitar and Mike Zanghi's pounding drums. Even the gentler songs, such as "On Tour" and "Baby's Arms" have a distinctly dark lyrical tone. The closest that Vile gets to some kind of acceptance is in the central track, the rueful "In My Time" "I know when we get older, I'm dying, but I got everything I need here now, and that's fine, now... that's fine. Recorded at the Magic Shop by John Agnello, the album is a massive step forward for one of the country's most beloved (not least by other musicians) rock songwriters.) 26.00


NICO ​FIDENCO – Emanuelle ​In ​America (​OST) LP (sonor music - Edition of 500 copies, incl. insert The rarest chapter of EMANUELLE saga by Nico Fidenco and hisloyal orchestra director Oscar Lindok (Giacomo Dell'Orso). Majestic original soundtrack of the sex thriller movie "EMANUELLE IN AMERICA" from 1977 directed by Joe D'Amato. Sexploitation cult and acclaimed director's third instalment of Black Emanuelle film series starring Dutch actress Laura Gemser included the best music cuts of the whole series. Spellbinding, breathtaking and wordless music with dreamy orchestral movements, unbelievable downtempo Funk and timeless beats, mental Afro-beat and dancing percussion, sweet Psychedelic guitars, subtle female chorus, heavy strings and orchestra, loungy sounds, driving funky drums and so on.) 31.00


OPPENHEIMER ANALYSIS - New Mexico DLP (minimal wave - Minimal Wave proudly presents a newly remastered deluxe double album of archival material by pioneering 80s minimal electronic duo Oppenheimer Analysis. Oppenheimer Analysis formed in London, England in 1982 by Andy Oppenheimer and Martin Lloyd. Their first meeting though was at the 1979 World Science Fiction Convention in Brighton. They quickly became good friends, sharing an interest in the work of David Bowie, electronic music and early synthesizer bands such as the Human League and Soft Cell. They also shared a love of old science fiction movies, 1950s graphics and comic book imagery and a fascination with post-World War II propaganda, the politics and aesthetics of the Cold War, and the social impact of the atomic bomb. Over the next few years Andy and Martin frequented the growing club scene, including Studio 21 on Oxford Street, and became involved in the developing Futurist and New Romantic style sub-cultures. During this period Martin recorded as Analysis, both alone and with David Rome of Drinking Electricity. They released their first single, “Surface Tension/Connections” on David’s Survival label in 1981. In 1982, Oppenheimer Analysis began writing and recording together at Feedback Studio in Battersea, and performed several times at The Bell, Islington, the 1983 World David Bowie Convention in Hammersmith, the Starzone Birthday Party at Camden Palace, the 1984 European Science Fiction Convention in Brighton and other live venues. Their first demo tape and twelve song “New Mexico” cassette were sold at gigs and by mail-order, and were reviewed in Melody Maker, Sounds and Soundmaker. For the years to follow, Oppenheimer Analysis became recognized among electro-music aficionados as a pioneering duo who influenced countless other bands during the club and home-recording era of the early 1980s and beyond. Their cassettes became massively collectible. In 2005 they re-formed with the release of a self-titled four song 12” EP of selections from the New Mexico cassette, including “Cold War” and “The Devil’s Dancers”. This marked the first release on Minimal Wave. Now in 2015, we’re happy to present the entire New Mexico collection, newly remastered and cut to vinyl for the first time ever, to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. This first edition of 1000 copies is pressed on deluxe ‘nuclear’ style black and white 160 gram vinyl, housed in a glossy gatefold silver and black printed sleeve, featuring all the song lyrics on the inside of the sleeve. First release date: May 16th, 2015. This quintessential reissue has been produced in loving memory of Martin Lloyd.) 33.00


ROSE CITY BAND - Summerlong LP (thrill jockey - back in stock on col. Vinyl - It is impossible to talk about modern psychedelic music without mentioning Ripley Johnson. As bandleader of Wooden Shjips and one half of Moon Duo, Johnson has continually charted new cosmic paths that expand on the language of the genre. With Rose City Band, Johnson’s songwriting and beautiful guitar lines take center stage, the veil of psychedelia notably drawn back. While his vocal treatment would be recognizable to any Wooden Shjips fan, the sparseness of the instrumentation lays bare the beauty of his writing. Shimmering guitar lines are free to shine, buoyed by driving rhythms. New to the mix are arrangements and instruments drawn directly from classic country, resulting in songs with more than a hint of twang. The aptly named Summerlong, born of Johnson’s own fondness for the season, delivers an emotional lift—an expression akin to the joy of getting out there on a warm day, be it gathering for a BBQ, hopping onto a bike, leaping into a swimming hole, or simply reading in a park.) 27.00


SAM PREKOP - s/t LP (thrill jockey - Repressed on So Shy Pink vinyl! Sam Prekop’s eponymously titled LP is a study in pop nuances. Simultaneously transporting the listener from mild climes and swinging palms to darkened skies and wind blown steppes, the record will be easily recognized by fans of The Sea and Cake. Known to many as the singer and main songwriter for said group, Mr. Prekop is assisted on this release by Chad Taylor (Chicago Underground Duo), Josh Abrams (ex-Roots, Town and Country), Jim O’Rourke (Gastr del Sol) and Archer Prewitt (The Sea and Cake). Those expecting to find more of the computer beats and trickery found on The Fawn and Two Gentlemen are in for a surprise. Whilst prevalent on "Faces and People" - (a lucious groove overlayed by cornet and guitar), the computer takes a back seat to real strings, drums, piano, electric piano and organ as well as electric and acoustic bass. The subtle grooves, a trademark of The Sea and Cake records, are still present here as Sam and his band blend West African rhythms with a bit of soul, jazz and pop. The resulting record is something wholly original, elegant and earthy. A cauldren, if you will, of sweet smelling and enlightening stew. So line up, grab a spoon, and dig in. All the ingredients and intoxicating aromas necessary for an auditory feast are contained within.) 25.00


SANDRO BRUGNOLINI - Utopia LP  (sonor - Edition of 700 copies, tip-on sleeve - Sonor Music Editions is continuing the dive into the glorious Sermi catalogue, a renomated Italian Library label that released, between late 60s and early 70s, some among the most sought-after and insane records of the whole Library/Soundtrack genre. This is the first ever reissue of another Italian Library grail from the catalogue - originally issued in 1972 on Gemelli label. Sandro Brugnolini's masterpiece "UTOPIA", originally pressed on a ridiculous run, and released on a beatiful tip-on sleeve reproducing painter Michel Seuphor's abstract art. The first official release after the recent maestro's passing, conceived with the great arrangements of Giorgio Carnini at the Hammond and piano, and the direction of maestro Franco Tamponi. A brilliant and inspired Jazz-Funk and Lounge Jazz session with just amazing sounds, driven by both dreamy and underground moods, Avant-garde Jazz refined orchestrations and gorgeous grooves.) 35.00


SENYAWA VS BLACK TO COMM - Alkisah Versi Hitam LP (dekoder - Ltd. edition of 200 copies, gold/white silk-screen printed PVC sleeve - Alkisah Versi Hitam is a radical deconstruction and reimagination of Indonesian duo Senyawa's most recent album Alkisah by Hamburg's Marc Richter aka Black To Comm. The original album was released to critical acclaim in February of this year as a decentralized release on a multitude of labels from all corners of the world, Germany’s Dekorder being one of them. Richter is now completely reinventing the original album from scratch by doing an almost Teo Macero-level production job here, cutting up the originals and (re)constructing new material from scratch.) 26.00


TERRY RILEY - Persian Surgery Dervishes DLP (Aguirre - back in stock - This classic minimal music album is now available again on vinyl for the first time since the 70s. Californian composer Terry Riley’s In C, first issued on vinyl in 1968, is widely acknowledged as a Minimalist landmark that altered the course of twentieth-century music. His influential album A Rainbow In Curved Air, which appeared the following year, is a vivid fusion of rock and raga, jazz and psychedelia realised through overdubbing on an 8-track machine which had recently been installed at the studios of Columbia Records.  In recent decades Riley has composed a series of critically acclaimed pieces for string quartet. He has also written for full orchestra and explored a variety of instrumental combinations. But during the 1970s, he concentrated on solo keyboard performances, continuing to make music yet writing down almost nothing. Riley selected a mode, chose a few motifs or basic patterns and then, seated on the floor in front of his audience, improvised on electronic keyboard. That instrument became an essential part of his musical identity for a while, although it was chosen in part for practical reasons. The electric organ, superseded at later concerts by a synthesizer, was portable and consistent. This enabled him to avoid unreliable pianos in venues which were less formal and more variable than the standard concert hall circuit.) 33.00


TORTOISE - tnt DLP (thrill jockey - finally re-issued. CLEAR W/ HI MELT WHITE TNT builds upon the spare, instrumental framework of the group's first, self-titled album, and the extended edits, melodic adventures, and klangfarben of the subsequent full-length release, Millions Now Living Will Never Die. Further to this, Tortoise's interest in the possibilities offered by the remixing of tracks was realized within the actual production of TNT; individual elements, sections, or sometimes whole compositions mutate within the album's shifting framework. These techniques were suitably realized thanks in part to the use of non-linear digital recording and editing methods, the first example of such work for the group. In addition, many of the arrangements push the group's standard instrumentation into new territories with the inclusion of strings, woodwinds, and brass. The permanent addition of guitarist Jeff Parker (New Horizons ensemble, Chicago Underground Orchestra, Isotope 217) to the group's lineup should be noted; his unique contributions can be felt throughout the album.) 33.00


TORTOISE - standards LP (thrill jockey - 2001 : Following the massive success of their 1998 album TNT, Tortoise delivered Standards. In and out of print over the past decade we are happy to finally give everyone what they have been asking for - Standards on vinyl again! Pressed on high quality virgin vinyl with the original heavy duty artworked inner sleeve and custom silk-screened PVC outer bag. The tunes on Standards are direct and immediate, yet they maintain the exploratory edge that has always characterized the group's output. The fusion of instrumental sounds (electric, acoustic, and synthesized) is subtle and subversive. Similarly, the group's fluency within the studio environment gives the finished work a quality that alternates between artifice and reality. Whilst TNT was constructed in the studio using segments recorded, improvised or altered electronically, the Standards sessions began after a period of rehearsal and composition. The contrast, simply stated, is that the studio was used extensively as a compositional tool for TNT, whereas with Standards it was used predominantly as tool to realize and enhance the existing new compositions. The studio does not impose itself on the recording to the same degree we witnessed on TNT, and the resulting record is in many ways reminiscent of their unadorned self-titled debut.) 25.00


V/A - Written On the Wall : American Soul Music 1958-1974 3LP (Cairo - a few back in stock - The seventh and I believe last volume in this Cairo Comp series. thirty six tracks spread over 3 LPs. 28 Page full color 12 X 12 booklet.
