Got a package from Blackest Rainbow today and I have to say that I’m pretty breathless now.. :D (actually my tolerance for strange music/noise is reaching its limits hahaa..)
But I like this journey. Blackest Rainbow is having a sale and they are selling these records with ridiculously low price tags. Well, with prices like that I couldn’t resist and I ordered few records (these are from the first shipment, the other one is still on its way). Lets go!
MOUNTAINHOOD – Death Pod, Single sided 12″ (limited to 320 copies) BRR135, 2009
Hmm.. very interesting piece of vinyl this single sided twelve-inch record is. Experimental indeed, and little hard for me to say what this actually is. Interesting and cost only £1.99 and there is only one copy left on Blackest Rainbow’s BandCamp site. Choice is yours :)
DAVID A. JAYCOCK – Presets, LP (limited to 250 copies) BRR193, 2010
I like this one. Little easier to listen than that Mountainhood’s album. This might be some kind of easy-listening, experimental folk or something. Nice pick even though I had no idea about this artist or anything he has done. This cost me £3.99 and there are still 3 copies left on Blackest Rainbow’s BandCamp site. This is good.
JACK ALLETT – The Collapsing Middle, LP + CD (limited to 300 copies) BRR207LP, 2011
Oh, yet another one I really like, acoustic guitar mixing blues, country, folk etc. Now I’m smiling considering the fact that I bought these albums without hearing a single note. Cost me £2.99 and if some one is interested hearing little different guitar playing, I suggest you to head straight to the source, Blackest Rainbow and their BandCamp site (21 copies remaining). Recommended.
ACID BIRDS – Acid Birds III, LP (limited to 500 copies), 2011
Hahaa! If you don’t like jazz, you better avoid this record (this is free jazz, improvised, experimental etc.) It’s like a hectic wind blowing through my skull, refreshing experience! There certainly is a place for records like this, my record rack. Nice, nice. You can blow your head off just spending £1.99 at Blackest Rainbow’s BandCamp site.
STARVING WEIRDOS – B/P/M Series 1, LP (limited to 500 copies) BRR118, 2009
Whoa.. My first contact with Starving Weirdos (somehow I have always missed every single recording they have made..) But now that mistake is corrected. I have to admit that I had no idea what to expect when placing this under the needle. Damn! This is good and I paid only £1.99 to get this beauty in my collection. I want more. Sadly this one is now sold out from Blackest Rainbow but quite easy to find with decent price tag from other sources.
I have to say that I’m very pleased to these records, actually more than pleased. Now I’m just waiting for that other half of my order (six-pack of unfamiliar treasures) to arrive.
