The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble: I Forsee The Dark Ahead, If I Stay 2xLP (white)

kilimanjaro

While I usually skip all possible live recordings, with this I was forced to make an exception. The Kilimanjaro Dark Jazz Ensemble (aka. The Mount Fuji Doom Jazz Corporation) is one of those bands that I’ve followed for years and I will follow forever. Oh, this kinda music has nothing to do with stoner etc. maybe there’s some doomed elements hidden beyond these tunes filled with drone, experimental jazz. Awesome group, and If you want to open your stoned hearts for these kind of tunes, head to the Denovali Records website.



Hidden Orchestra: Dawn Chorus 2xLP (+ 10″ & CD etc.)

hidden orchestra

I Came across with Joe Acheson’s studio project (Hidden Orchestra) years ago, if I remember right it must have been on year 2011, via great Denovali Records. Since that moment I have tried to purchase/collect all his records under this moniker. This seems to be latest release of Hidden Orchestra and this time via Tru Thoughts. Hidden Orchestra is about downtempo, contemporary, experimental future jazz and I really love to listen these tunes over and over again. Beautiful album (third time on a row). This version I purchased is on ultra-clear black/white blob vinyl, along came ten-inch called “Source Materials” 24-page booklet and CD. Quite nice deal indeed. Can’t remember the limitation of this bundle but one thing is for sure, it’s sold out. If you’re still interested, you can purchase regular black version via Tru Thoughts (for example). Recommended artist, always.



 

The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble: Mutations 12″ (clear, repress)

Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble

Amazing news is that Denovali is repressing these almost impossible to find releases from awesome The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble. I remember purchasing an original copy of this twelve-inch via Discogs few years ago, just to return it back to the seller (was in quite bad shape). Since that I have been waiting secretly that maybe one day some one is releasing this on vinyl again and now that day is here. These are still available (on clear vinyl & limited to 150 copies) from Denovali and by purchasing this repress you can save your hard-earned money from those greedy Discogs sellers :D



 

Emancipator: Soon It Will Be Cold Enough 2xLP / Safe In The Steep Cliffs 2xLP

ema02ema01

Came home few hours ago and these two albums were here waiting for me. I’m really glad that these are finally released on vinyl.. I can clearly remember listening “Soon It Will Be Cold Enough” when I was on gym lifting some iron (well, it was few years ago..) but anyways, both of these albums are awesome and I really, really like these. Purchased these from Bandcamp (https://emancipator.bandcamp.com/music) and about limitation, no idea.

And the whining part of this post. I asked to remove possible shrink-wrap etc. Both albums came on same package (obviously) and both were sealed (shrink wrapped) and both albums have bumps on few corners.. And on top of that, customs duty $20.. yep.

Make sure that You contact the artist and make sure how You want your albums sent to You. Well, like Ramones said “Merry Christmas, I don’t wanna fight tonight”.

Peace.

doomjazz

This 3×10″ may be too much for some one, but not for me. Denovali released this few years ago and I bought this straight away. Some kind of doomy/drony/ambient.. This is limited to 100 copies on grey and 200 copies on black vinyl. There is also second press available and it is limited to 200 copies on ultraclear vinyl with white and grey splatter. Available from, where else than from Denovali (second press).

The Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation: Anthropomorphic 2xLP (ultraclear)

Great example how great stuff Denovali is releasing! The Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation (might have something to do with The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble ;) ) is darkdronejazz collective floating somewhere beyond this realm. Great recordings been released by this band. Total pressing of this record was 500 copies and there are 100 copies pressed on ultraclear vinyl. Black vinyl version still available from Denovali.
