September Shop Updates
MML037 / BRIAN GRAINGER / HUMIDITY
3" CD-R Single
Something to herald the end of the Summer and the beginning of Autumn. A very melodic ambient piece called "Humidity" that sits very much in the same vein as records like Of The Apple or Eight Thousander. Lots of deep buried tonalities under cloudy chords and a really textural field recording of some of the rain that Brian's city has gotten along with the recent hurricanes. Guitars and organ pedalbass, limited to 100 copies!
MML038 / VHOM / FAALOPIAN TILS
The very first hardcopy full-length Vhom album is finally here. Years in the making, Faalopian is not going to be something that appeals to everyone. Over an hour of 31 untitled tracks, all joined together in a seamless collage flow, and packaged in a jewel case with heavy duty corrugated cardboard for the inserts. Musically this record might resemble the sound of pouring boiling water in your ears, and I'm not quite sure why anyone (including me) would want to listen to that! For fans of things like BRTLMN/Wordsalad/Sagmo B, early Throbbing Gristle, Cylob's "Industrial Folk Songs" or Aphex Twin's "Classics". Heck, maybe even a little of Merzbow's "Pulse Demon" in there too. An absolute mindfuck of a record that is best enjoyed on a very loud stereo system. Putting the "concrete" back into musique concrete, 100 copies at a time.
MMX006 / MILIEU / DUSTYBOX TRACKS
3" CD-R EP
Already up to numero seis in the Dustybox Tracks series! This time it's more like the very first EP that started the series, in that it's a small collection of remixes I did as Milieu for Asymmetrical Head, Track53 and Phasen. Melodies and beats are all over the place on these tracks, and they'd definitely appeal to anyone who is after the "classic Milieu sound". As usual with the series, it's only a fiver to get some catchy tunes that can fit in your pocket.
**BACK IN STOCK**
MML015 / BRIAN GRAINGER / AUTUMN SOIL FEEDBACK (SECOND EDITION)
Repackaged in a more standard shop look with the original decals and stamping, and this time it's only $5! For anyone who missed out on this run of 50 before, this second edition is another run of 50 and will probably go pretty fast! For those of you who like your drones buried under walls of radio static, vinyl surface-noise, tape hiss, VLF recordings and 16-RPM orchestras, this is just for you.
