Oh and today I finally received that second parcel from Blackest Rainbow (took a little longer to arrive but now it’s here where it should be). Well, let’s see what we got here.. That much I already know that these are quite experimental albums and that really is the most interesting part :) —————————————————————————————————————— OWL XOUNDS EXPLODING GALAXY – Splintered Visions, LP (limited to 250 copies) BRR223, 2011 And this first one is totally free jazz, free improvisation and.. and […]
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! […]
This one I found on the floor, below the letterbox few hours ago (of course it was packaged nicely, it did not came like this). Interesting and strange little one indeed. Released by Folklore Tapes and that should ring some bells if wondering what kind of record this is. Hey, this is also the first official vinyl release Folklore tapes has done. Limited to 200 hand-numbered and stamped copies. Strange-heritage-folk seven inch and highly recommended, just listen. Still available from […]
And just when you thought that there has been enough posts of Horseback releases lately.. You were wrong! This came today, test pressing of this awesome album. And there’s always room for more records like this one in my rack. Announcement about this being available came from Horseback via Twitter and I did not hesitate a second. Mine, all mine.. As far as I know there are 25 copies floating around and surprisingly this sold out quite fast (I think […]
Not so often I purchase used items but I made an exception with this one when I saw this on Iron Force Records webstore. Well, I picked this from Post office an hour ago and I’m very pleased, record in excellent condition! Very raw dark folk and country influenced album indeed. Surprisingly he is recording with Chelsea Wolfe nowadays, perfect duo. Evil record. This reminds me little of tales told by Those Poor Bastards, similar atmosphere on this album. Yes! […]
Oh, damn! This newest from Horseback came today and I’m totally surprised and amazed with this album (in best possible way). The difference with “Invisible Mountain” (my first Horseback purchase few years back) and this album is huge! I really appreciate when band keeps evolving.. but this is amazing! Love these guitars, love this strange little record. What can I say when experimental metal/drone band does record like this one. Now I have to purchase that Jenks Miller “Spirit Signal” on […]
Woah! Just look what I got today! Awesome experimental/folk record with some banjo tunes (oh, I love that instrument). This might be the record of the year to me. There is something dark lurking beyond these tunes, embraced by hopelessness and something unknown. Post-apocalyptic folk? Soundtrack for those lonely days when you are standing on the beach, staring at the sea and hoping something to happen.. I love this record! This is limited to 250 copies on clear vinyl. There […]
Wow!! This awesome piece of art came today and oh, how I have been waiting for this to arrive. I found this from BandCamp, listened one song, then another and another.. And obviously I had to purchase this. Awesome record, experimental-folk-I-do-not-even-know-how-to-describe record, twisted. You better listen this to yourself, you wont regret it. I do not know about limitation but this is available from the source Hit+Run Records. There are few options available single LP or bundled one (LP+cassette). Choice […]
And then there is this fine vinyl release, obscure collection of Andrew Tuttle’s (known as Anonymeye) abstract folk performances on vinyl. Is this some kind of experimental-drone-folk or what, it does not matter because I like these tunes. Record of its own kind indeed, limited to 35 copies on vinyl and sadly this has been sold out for a while now. If I remember right, the limitation based on the amount of pre-orders. —
Little easier music for the soul, comforting and warm tunes. Even though there are some religious nuances on this record, I do not mind. Most of those black metal bands are singing about devil etc. so it’s same thing reversed, if you believe in devil, then you obviously believe in some kind of god. Anyways, let’s forget those religious aspects. For me this is as the title says “Wintersongs”, soundtrack for these snow-covered days. This one is released first time […]
Oh, what a nice surprise! Picked this up from the post office few hours ago. Great little record to lighten up this grey Friday afternoon! This record is made in the spirit of great Moondog, successfully. Timeless, minimal and surely hypnotic music with psychedelic twist. Yes, I can recommend this with pure heart. Transparent blue version of this album is limited to 100 copies and available from Lineria, there also seems to be regular black version available floating around good […]
Seems that this day is dedicated to quite different music. First I got that Fabrizio’s album and then I picked this up from the Post office. Woah.. Even though it took long time this to arrive, it was worth that. I heard this album first time via BandCamp, listened a while and as usually when I like what I hear, I purchase. Nice mixture of ambient, electronic and traditional Balkan soundscape. This is the reason I love to explore music, […]
Finally, this one. Alicia Merz and her new album “This Kindly Slumber” (released by Denovali). I have all her albums released on vinyl, surprisingly. One of my favorite artists, if not the best one. I still can remember purchasing her debut album on vinyl “Without the World”, awesome record, pure gold. And since that moment it has been obvious that I’m going to purchase every single album she is going to release. Recommended release once again from this (underrated, in […]
Thanks to Gabriele (again), for pointing out this awesome album. I watched just one youtube video from this duo and I had to purchase this album. Very strange dark-folk-country-acoustic-psychedelic record and these twisted tunes.. I can’t recommend this enough, You just need to hear this. Surely there are plenty of people who do not care about this record, and that is purely their lost. Oh, and thanks to Outer Battery Records for quick and secured shipping. This is limited to […]
Actually I got this seven-inch few months ago. I was going trough my seven-inch collection and this little treasure jumped out of the pile. For all those Mojave 3/Slowdive fans this is a must buy. So if you are after this little pearl, head straight to Sonic Cathedral and pick your copy. Sold out. Lovely little record.
Niceee.. this beauty also came today, collaboration of two amazing artists, Gunn & Gangloff. This records sounds amazing, Gunn with guitars and Gangloff handling other instruments and if you like acoustic, experimental music, you should try this one. Somehow this record draws a picture of prairie into my mind (and I have never ever actually been even near of those areas). Nice. This is limited to 500 copies and 200 of those are on red vinyl, rest are black. Both […]
This, arrived today and I’m very pleased of that. Yes, I know that Mark’s music is not everyone’s cup of tea but mine it certainly is. Loved his work since I saw Screaming Trees video “Nearly Lost You” over twenty years ago. I can’t remember how I ended up to purchase this anthology, but I think that I got mail from Light In The Attic about this release. This was must have to me. Managed to purchase this yellow vinyl […]
And this one. Damn this is good, I really like/love this record. Thank God (even though I’m not a religious one), it’s quite easy nowadays to find awesome music around the globe. I came across this album while surfing through BandCamp and it took only one song to make decision of purchasing this album. There’s some distant, familiar feeling floating throughout this album.. I can’t describe it, you have to listen it yourself. Is this alternative-folk-country-singer/songwriter stuff I do not […]
Even though it is Monday, I can say that this might be my “Record of The Week”. All thanks goes to that opening tune, A Little Bit Of Cryin’. Damn I really like this record. There are days that you have to listen this kind of music to survive in this cold, dark world. Beautiful album and I really liked the picture on the mailer this came in.. Brought smile on my face, Thanks! And I hope that this is […]
Now I’m healing my metal overdose with this beauty. Found this from BandCamp and now I find this really refreshing. The point is that I made my decision to purchase this album based on just one song, I’m Sorry, Hosanna. And I’m very glad that I did. If you enjoy listening experimental folk/country seasoned with little goth, then this album is for you (as it’s for me too). Limited to 500 copies and seems that 100 of those are colored like […]
This I also had to purchase, along that “Griseus” album. Surprisingly, released by Blood Music. Atmospheric-blackened-metal (some folk influences might be heard..). This EP has never been released officially before and now it’s here. Limited to 75 copies on black and 75 copies on white (Blood Music members only item) vinyl. Oh, and yet one item that is totally sold out.. :(
And one of those underground treasures, this time from Australia. Hmm.. not that traditional black metal, more like post-neo-classical blackened folk or something. But damn this sounds gooooood. Thanks to Blood Music once again, for bringing this jewel to sunlight (or is moonlight better term when we are talking about this album). Limitation is 100 copies on “cognac” and 100 copies on black vinyl. Totally sold out is this item too..
And this one, that came today. Nice little record filled with excellent/amazing tunes. If you are tired of listening those mind melting metal records of yours, I recommend you to listen this record for a while. Abstract folk/world/country is the genre this album is floating and I like this one. I do not know the limitation (on their BandCamp site it’s stated as 200 copies) of this album. It seems that initial copies of this album had 11 offset prints […]
Strange album filled with awesome banjo & fiddle tunes. I’m very happy that I purchased this one (even though decision took quite a long time). Oh, and one awesome point was that this was packaged in these mailers with bumper zones (Thank You! Blackest Rainbow!). And about the music, I admire those who can handle instrument called banjo. Excellent! Limitation of this record is 500 copies and available from Blackest Rainbow (grab a copy while you can!)
This time something totally different. Even though I do not listen that much “mainstream” music, this artist stole my heart few years ago with her debut album. And what can I say about this album, nothing but once again pure beauty. And that voice, divine.. Limitation of this one is unknown but I’m sure that anyone who wants this album, can get a copy. Anyways, nice box set with LP, CD, exclusive instrumental CD, print and music sheet of song […]
And another beauty from Pesanta Urfolk, Sterling Sisters and their lovely album “Hale”. For me this is some kind of dark-goth-country.. Damn this sounds good. This is going to have some heavy rotation this weekend. Recommended. Don’t know about limitation of this but there’s 100 copies on brown vinyl (sold out) and black copies. You can pick your copy (black) from Pesanta Urfolk. Recommended! And Sterling Sisters sounds like this:
This beauty arrived today from Pesanta Urfolk, oh and how I have been waiting for this to arrive (there was some problems with USP and it took nearly one and a half months to arrive). Many thanks to Pesanta for solving those shipping problems. Recommended. This is limited to 500 copies, 100 copies of those came on this color and rest are black. Black copies available from Pesanta Urfolk (colored ones are sold out). I have been little unlucky with […]
Hmm.. I went to post office to send some packages and found out that this strange little record was there waiting for me. What can I say.. mixture of some experimental folk-hip-hop in Finnish (seasoned with ethereal echoes from some very dark place..). This haunted beauty is limited to 500 copies (150 copies on silver and 350 copies on black wax) and released by Svart Records. Colored version seems to be little hard to find (Swamp Music seems to have […]
Purrrrr.. And this record I also picked up today. If you are not familiar with this artist, now is time to correct that. Totally amazing artist with breathtaking music. Pure greatness. I was totally hypnotized with her Roadburn live record and now this one.. She reminds me about PJ Harvey somehow even her music is more intense and darker than Polly’s. Excellent album. Available from Hellomerch.
In my opinion this is the winner of this week, this month and clearly one of the best records of the year so far. There is something magical around this release and I’m so happy that I came across with this artist (found this from Pesanta Urfolk’s site). I listened this record few times from her Bandcamp site and surprise, surprise I had to purchase this immediately. Awesome and highly recommended. This color is limited to 100 copies and there are […]
This one arrived today. Their latest album was pretty damn good and this one ain’t bad at all. This is limited to 1300 copies on vinyl (300 x space splatter, 400 x transparent purple and 600 copies on black vinyl). All versions are available from the source, Svart Records.
This one I picked up from post office yesterday. RSD13 exclusive limited to 1000 copies (500 copies on black and other half on green vinyl). Personally I really like these cover versions even though this release is not as good one as the previous cover album. I purchased this from Kozmik Artifactz.
Goat.. I love this band. I know very well that everybody else loves them too (or not). Ordered this few weeks ago and I’m very pleased with these new tunes. This is limited to 500 copies on white vinyl and available from Stranded Records (Sub Pop is releasing this on 7″ and it’s available for pre-order on their site). So what are you waiting for?
Huu.. This arrived today (been waiting this quite a time). Xinjiang was awesome album and it was mainly the reason to purchase this one. Love, pure. For time to time it’s relaxing to listen sounds beyond metal. Limited to 500 copies and available from the source, Discrepant or little cheaper from Phonica Records. Only minus point was that record came horribly packed, and here is picture of it :( hmm.. is this how to send records? Well, here’s some sounds from the […]
Thanks again to OMG Vinyl! I ordered this last week and now I’m holding this beauty in my hands. Amazing music, drone-folk? Anyways, highly recommended and this is available from Behind The Door. Limited to 250 copies (100 on silver and 150 copies on black vinyl, both available from the store). Hmmmmmmm..
Last one of those records released on RSD13 that I purchased. And purchased this only because of Chelsea’s awesome voice. No information about limitation but if you want this one, you should check Discogs, quite cheap copies available there (in my opinion).
These RSD left-overs I ordered yesterday, and I was totally surprised how fast these arrived. Not that big fan of remixes but in this case I made the exception. I have no idea of limitation and I think that these are very easy to find from good record stores. Not bad purchase at all, I think.
This is (should be) “must have” record for everyone. Damn this is awesome. There will be time when I’ll be sitting in my rocking chair and still keep on listening this record.. This is limited to 500 copies and released by Experimedia (on sale $10.40 there).
Pre-ordered this one. At that point it was limited to 500 copies on black vinyl and month later there was 500 copies more released on white vinyl. Anyways, have to say that I liked their debut album little better (debut is re-pressed and available again from Prophecy). So what? This is beautiful album, full of heart and soul. White version still available from Prophecy. Recommended.
I bought this nearly two years ago, very nice american folk record. This is limited to 500 copies and 30 initial came on green marble vinyl (if we are to believe Discogs) Well, anyways, if you want this album you know where to get it. Here are some music samples from artists Bandcamp page.
And yes, I have been fan of Hank III for years now. This is 3xLP set and heavy to heart and ears, in good way. I like this monster a lot. Nice to hear that Tom Waits is visiting on this album. Recommended, highly. New wave of country music. Easiest way to get your hands on this record is visiting Hanks webstore, 3bay.
Americana at it’s best. There are some connections with band called O’death (awesome band) and this one. Well, think that this is better :) This is limited to 300 hand-numbered copies (CD-r comes along) and it’s avalable from Safety Meeting. Try it!
This also came today. For me this was “must buy” because of Mark and Karen. This is released as part of a series celebrating Light In The Attic’s 10 year anniversary in 2012. Sold out from Light In The Attic’s store but you can purchase this for example from Other Music. Don’t know about limitation of this and seems that this is available from different stores when I googled this.
Damn this is beautiful record. I have this “mission” to find a perfect recording and this goes so near, no words to describe.. as usual when I hear something like this record is. From Discogs you can find this for very reasonable prize. Listen..
Ltd. 250 Edition Orange Vinyl in hand-made Orange Box incl. threat-bound, hand-made 12-page Book plus 4 bonus tracks, poster, postcard. Signed by Peter himself. This came today and as you can imagine, I’m happy about it. And about the music itself, excellent record, brings back memories from summer.. You can try to reach for this album at Erased Tapes site
Even though there’s nothing limited or colored on this record, I ain’t gonna ever never give up this record. It’s that good. Agnes covering Karen Dalton’s song “Katie Cruel” This tune actually is not on LP but you can found this on extended cd version of this album.
