Guys from Love Cult/Full Of Nothing prepared NY batch of things to listen. All these releases available at FONO label. Meanwhile check these tunes to decide:
Pawned Pajamas/Golden Cup/Twilight Owls/Flamingo Creatures — Split — K7
Info: "4 projects from 3 different countries have come up with pieces of music illustrating a good day. As the sun rises Pawned Pajamas start off with their mellow synth waves mixed with spoken word samples. An easy floating collab between two nice German acts: folk-collagist Baldruin and new new age enthusiast Hering und seine sieben Sachen. In the afternoon Golden Cup from Portugal takes the stage. Luca Massolin is known far and wide for his excellent 8mm Records label as well as being part of Golden Jooklo Age. As a duet with Maurizio Abate they create shining streams of dense psychedelia, very straight and powerful - using electric organ and mandolin. When the evening comes we receive a strange call from a drunk woman with Twilight Owls from Moscow, Russia. This is a solo output of a highly active guitarist called Fedya. He uses punk rock intensity to create psychedelic guitar drones, loud and ecstatic. Closing act is Flamingo Creatures, also from Germany. Ronnie Oliveras and Ruth-Maria Adam (also members of Datashock collective) are going to lull you to sleep with slow burning synths and a violin, perfect nigth-time music. All in all, quite a varied and pleasant experience for just one tape. Hope it makes your day! Greenish paper J-cards. 60 copies."
gkfoes vjgoaf — Spirit Dance — K7
Info: "America's Sean Conrad has been able to channel quite a few very important vibes here. Spirits obviously dance to this tape! Many slow raga-like grooves meet abstract sunny guitar and vocal rumble, when not intervened by ecstatic vocal bursts and ritual bells and cymbals. Moving back and forth, keeping things in balance Sean goes along a narrow path of calm self-reflection and observation, dancing to his own heartbeat, setting his mind at ease. "Every breath and every bow is a gesture of the soul." Namaste. Gold paper stock J-cards. 50 copies."
throuRoof — Tarots Session — K7
Info: "As mental and spiritual pathways divide and collide there has always been an experience of high imprortance to any human - touching a mystery. Being close to something beyond any description. There are some pieces of music when the record session is itself a revelatory act. New cassette from Italy's throuRoof is a magical journey from the darkest corners of one's soul to the sacred light of hope. Dedicated to Alejandro Jodorowsky and his advices on the art of looking behind reality. See-through J-cards and tarots from a pack found on a Russian dump which makes each cassette unique. 48 copies."
Archers By The Sea — Ħaġar Qim — CDr
Info: "Vincent Caylet's Archers by the Sea is an ongoing solo excursion into endless eerie territories. Those not yet acquainted with this moniker may know "V" or The Pistil Cosmos, all highly recommended stuff. "Ħaġar Qim" brings a pallette of mixed approach: be prepared for both birdsong acoustic lullabies and squashing heavy noise streams. Go away with complex sound temples, psychedelic Malta dreams, loose constructions and stone foundations. Red paper sewn-through covers with decorated CDrs. 50 copies."
