As you may have been able to tell, I recently redesigned the entire Milieu Music shop page, so now it functions alot better as a more "label looking" site complete with a catalog and pictures of my pets! And, as you might have expected, it's chock-full of new releases too, all affordably priced at $5-$8.
MML023 / BRIAN GRAINGER / YELLOWED
A warm hour of tonal feedback drones, completely improvised and lovingly laid to tape. Packaged in yellow paper sleeves with yellow stamped inserts and limited to 50 copies.
MML024 / WATERSTRIDER / KOJIRO
Four unearthed gems from 2005, and a proper introduction to the long unidentified collaboration between Milieu and Ten And Tracer: Waterstrider. Comprised of a single track the boys recorded three years ago and filed away, and three long sought-after Milieu remixes of the Ten And Tracer track "A Distant Monarch". All material has never before been released and appears here in the form of a 3" CD-R with a blue cardstock insert. Limited edition of 100 copies, in three shades of blue.
MML025 / COPPICE HALIFAX & CASIO COMMANDER / NEON NITES AND DAYGLO DAZE
Hot on the heels of the bouncy Lush Q Trax split with Foamek, Coppice Halifax returns once again for a split 3" CD-R with fellow ambient technologist Casio Commander. Two original tracks and two remixes paint a picture of a drugged out night in neon danceclubs and a slow comedown as the sun rises, maybe in Miami, maybe in the Summer. Probably in the 80's. Packaged with hot-pink inks on royal purple cardstock with a shiny ribbon insert, and a special first edition of 12 copies with steel-blue cardstock. Limited to 50.
MMX002 / MILIEU / DUSTYBOX TRACKS
The second part of the ongoing Dustybox Tracks series of 3" CD-Rs. This time around the dust in question has been cleaned off of five remixes of Milieu tracks, some done years ago and never released. Beautiful remixing work graciously done by Galerie Stratique, Pizgah, Scup Bucket, Fieldtriqp and Am-Boy.
MML026 / VHOM / SALT/DECAY
Recorded in 2006 and built using only drums as the sound source, this Vhom EP fills half an hour with the sounds of alien machinery in a damp dark room, sputtering in and out of operation, while dry gusts of sickly-sweet air form a droning purple fog. Very spooky dense music for nighttime headphone listening. Packaged in standard paper shop sleeves with a stamped clock insert, and limited to 50 copies.
MML027 / MILIEU / CALICO FOUNTAIN MELANGE
An "expanded single" of three tracks from the vaults! "Albatrosses" and "Counting Lights" were originally written to be included on Aurora Borealis and Night Currents, respectively, and then they were meant to be included on several other releases since then, but never quite made it. Still kicking today and frustrated at not being picked so many times, these tracks have grown together in a way, and now they appear together here complemented by an almost-70 minute (!!!) mixset of Milieu songs, seamlessly and masterfully woven together by Mr. Kernel32 in the UK. Packaged in a clear plastic sleeve with a colorful inkstamped rainbow card, limited to 50 copies.
MMX003 / MILIEU / DUSTYBOX TRACKS
The third installment of the ongoing Dustybox Tracks series. This time with three psychedelic mixes by Foamek, Am-Boy and Eric Poplin Spies. Very much in the vein of long hazy summer music, and definitely appealing to folks who liked this series so far. Packaged in the same layout as the first two in the series.
