Justin from Invisible Conga People lived in Japan for five years and formed this group with three Japanese friends. They recorded an album in summer 2001 with DFA but the group disbanded shortly thereafter and the record was never released.
In the same way Invisible Conga People seamlessly blends vintage synth and Krautrock with modern electronic elements to create its own hypnotic, psychedelic sound, We Acediasts took the angular bombast of no wave and wove in the expansive, arching elements of Sonic Youth, P.I.L. and even This Heat (and at times, even some of the casualness of the Fall) to make a very savvy and effective sound of their own. 
Hand numbered edition of 300 w/ silk screened covers and digital download coupon. Highly Recommended.

Black Dice - Big Deal (LIES071)

$15.99

Forming during 1997 in Providence, Rhode Island experimental group Black Dice have without question paved their own way through their 20 year career. Doing what you want to do when you want to do it, no questions asked with a fully informed yet blatant disregard for everything surrounding them, always with acute execution and an ever changing singular sound. No gimmicks, no nonsense, since the beginning.

Somehow it would only make sense for Dice and L.I.E.S. to link up and after a long friendship we see it come to fruition. With this two track 12 inch Dice put their foot on the gas and ramp it up. You wanted to shred? Well this shreds. Is it a snapshot of the past? A possible nod of things to come? A moment frozen in time? We leave it for you to decide.

The LP that made us fall in love with this band! Recently repressed by Vermont's amazing NNA Tapes, pick it up before it's gone again!

"Brand new full-length from Brooklyn's Guerrilla Toss. Unbridled and demented noise rock with heavy doses of technical hammering , extreme musicality, and heaps of perverse funk. Complex composition mixed with raw punk energy make Gtoss one of the most refreshing young bands out there. Ride the guerilla!"

Guerilla Toss - 367 Equalizer (Random Color LP)

$17.99

The tracks that lead to DFA falling in love with the Toss! Originally released as a cassette tape, now on one-side 12" format from Massachusetts' lovely Feeding Tube Records. Their words below - but please consider this very highly recommended.

"Vinylization of a recent Infinity Cat cassette, 367 Equalizer is a one-sided slab of belligerent art damage. The feel of this session is more tempered than that of their wigglesome debut LP, Jeffrey Johnson (as well as their second LP, which shall go nameless). The discordian elements of post-no-wave edge and Brooklyn basement glue party remain, but some of the looser jags have been hauled in and buffed like a fine pair of loafers. This is still definitely the sound of young people, but not in a way that grates on my old man’s sensibilities.

One of my favorite prog albums was recorded by Pete Brown’s band, Piblotko, and it’s called Things May Come and Things May Go, But the Art School Dance Goes On Forever. The sentiment expressed by that title inhabits the music here. It acknowledges a variety of parallel continua, while adding a fresh layer of creative loam that will surely be plundered by subsequent generations of brats. It’s an endless worm of processing and renewal, and only time will tell if this Boston quintet ultimately manages to survive the rigors of the eat-and-be-eaten dictates of the form, but this is a damn good effort. It will be sure to please those amongst us who are still young in tongue, even as we become long in tooth. – Byron Coley, 2014"

Beautiful translucent tangerine vinyl 12", limited to 20 copies in the DFA store. 

Tracklist:

A1) Fine Time
A2) Don't Stop For Nothing
B1) Everybody Clap
B2) Panic In Fort Greene Park

Veteran NYC producer and DFA regular The Juan Maclean
 hops on the Razor-N-Tape records wagon for a rolling EP of drum-machine driven grooves for the Reserve sub-imprint. The record starts with the peak-time stomper Fine Time, building exquisite tension and release through looped and filtered samples, and then moves on to the boogie-infused swing of Don’t Stop For Nothing. Everybody Clap leads off side B with a soulful and string-laden vocal over a bouncing hi-hat-focused house arrangement, and the EP closes out on the dubbier tip with the eponymous Panic In Fort Greene Park, a synthy and smooth slow burner. All around beautifully produced and eminently playable, Señor MacLean has made himself a most welcome addition to the Razor-N-Tape family with this dynamic EP. (text provided via Razor-N-Tape)

Limbo extends his ouvre of layered, pitched, and all-out fucked sounds toward an easier place, a more familiar musical terrain. More fleshed out than his earlier work, Limbo’s six parts give it a capacious feel of action. Well organized and having an undeniable rhythm, the album is an excellent progression from the concepts explored within throughout his body of work.

$14.99

*PLEASE NOTE all remaining copies are in great condition, but contain minor surface wear n tear from storage. 

Fulton's been pursuing BOOF on and off over the past 15 years, and the flower-themed project houses some of his prettiest work. His instrumental and production prowess has never been in question, but 
The Hydrangeas Whisper ups the bar, marrying dubby synths and free-flowing guitar improvisation, dipping and diving in and out of various genres. The Hydrangeas Whisper feels like a culmination of sorts, the best of a grip of albums Fulton's issued over the past decade. He's beat the house LP problem by making something that feels like a DJ set, with stylistic leaps and no breaks between tracks. In fact, his intricate sound seems natural for this format. In a climate where scores of anonymous producers are handing in equally indistinguishable tracks, Fulton's carving out his odd, incredibly personal path.

Eric Copeland ‎– Al Anon
Eric Copeland ‎– Al Anon

Eric Copeland ‎– Al Anon

$10.99

Al Anon concludes Eric Copeland’s two part album entitled Alien In A Garbage Dump (available on CD from Paw Tracks). Where the first half offered a discombobulated collection of radio cross-signaling, here the alien finds its groove for a minute and tidies up the frequencies. There is still something outsiderish here, but with more of an effort to get inside, to play by the rules even? Or maybe the motivation is to sneak something subversive into the norms’ hideout? 

Since Al Anon was recorded at the same time as two Black Dice albums, there are obvious parallels in the results; an uncompromised sonic landscape. But outside the group setting, Copeland has found places one can only find alone: small inner dialogues and isolated mind caves where an idea may only last a moment. He captures and tweaks these ideas into fragments of many memories; a déjà vu record déjà vu record. Funny characters drop in and out. Songs come and go. Al Anonproves to be a strangely curated time capsule of OUR time right NOW; music where birds beat-box with car-stereo subwoofers and the neighbors’ Espanol sings on top the Sabbath siren. With all this going on, Copeland sometimes disappears into the anonymity, playing a ‘behind-the-scenes’ role, pushing cords and pulling buttons, laughing because the batteries are dying. Here the familiar becomes mysterious and the unknown feels normal and we can listen to this one all day trying to make those distinctions.

Edition of 500 copies with jaw-droppingly amazing black and white collage artwork by Copeland, screenprinted by VG Kids.

Factory Floor - Heart Of Data

$18.00

Limited private stock of ten 12" singles. 

Tracklist:
1) Heart Of Data (soundtrack edit)
2) Babel (soundtrack edit)

 

"Factory Floor are the latest to do that electronic musician’s rite of passage; re-scoring Fritz Lang’s silent cinematic landmark Metropolis, with results shared on the 1st release thru their H/O/D Records.

After shedding a member and regathering thoughts, FF’s Nik Colk Void and Gabriel Gurnsey reveal a sleeker new sound here, easing off the brittleness of their earlier releases with more smoothly contoured, malleable designs for dancefloor fluidity. 

Heart Of Data (Soundtrack Edit) is the more ‘floor focussed cut, working skittish, latinate drum trills in and around arcing synths in a way that smartly conveys the futuristic architectural designs and themes of their subject, especially when their vision really comes together in the final third. s

On the other hand, Babel (Soundtrack Edit) finds them working with almost Cumbia or Dembow shuffle on an elastic meter, sounding like techno on 33 not 45, and embedded in tactile, sticky bed of phasing synth washes for the 12 minute duration." - Text provided by Boomkat

Autofac (Juan Maclean & Shit Robot) - Souls On Ice

$12.00

Tracklist: 
1) Souls On Ice
2) Mood Shaker
3) The Vessel 
4) The Witch

(text via LPH) Autofac's gonna be a new one to you, but the names behind it—Juan MacLean and Marcus Lambkin, a.k.a. Shit Robot—most certainly are not. The DFA house, disco, and techno veterans have long been friends, sharing bills around the world, vocalists on records, engineers on mixing boards. For a while now, they've also been collaborating in the studio, and it's with tremendous honor that we get to be the label that presents the world with the fruits of their labors. 

Souls on Ice is a snarled, fierce, aggressive four-tracker, all of it recorded live, which gives it a distinct loopiness and patience. The EP starts off on a bumpin' techno tip and slowly drifts towards a spacier, groovier house sound. Charged and punchy, it's the kind of dance floor kick in the pants only wizards like Juan and Marcus can deliver.

$30.00

5 sealed copies of the original Hi-Ball Records pressing (HBLP-0996) of Evergreeen. Produced by James Murphy. Discogs sellers be damned

"Formed from the ashes of Louisville legends Cinderblock in the early 90s and boasting a revolving line-up that would make Spinal Tap blush, Evergreen solidified in 1993 when Britt Walford (Slint, The Breeders, The For Carnation) joined on drums. A tight mix of percussive guitars, strolling, funky bass and relentlessly catchy drum beats escalated the drunken vocal sways of Sean McLoughlin to immeasurable heights. Equally inspired by Fugazi, Television and The Stooges, Evergreen was a breath of fresh air that only Louisville folks were really ready to breathe. While the rest of the world was too busy going ape shit over increasingly soulless faux-jazz, Evergreen were throwing down party-punk jams to tear the roof down and/or get them arrested for public indecency and disturbing the peace (but that's another story for another time). Recorded in brilliant stereophonic mid-fi by James Murphy (of the DFA), this album seemed like a throwback in 1995. Oddly, it now feels more at home soaring above the increasingly soulless faux-garage rock revival. When all is said and done and you are left with nothing but the music to tell the story, it's damned near impossible to tell when this record was made and it's even harder to care. It's truly a timeless classic that has always deserved more attention than it has gotten." (text via Evergreen bandcamp)

Factory Floor unfold their full length live score to Fritz Lang’s seminal, silent 1920s sci-fi ‘Metropolis’, which they previously performed live at the Science Museum’s IMAX in April 2017, coinciding with the film’s 90th anniversary of release. 

With over 150 minutes of the film to soundtrack, Gabe Gurnsey and Nik Colk Void a.k.a. Factory Floor cover a lot of bases, from tense greyscale ambient to needling electro and pulsating techno and industrial minimalism, often in the same track, which scale from tense, 3 minutes themes, and up to a 20 minute-long tract of woozy slow electro.

2. Robert Hood – The Bond We Formed (Slam’s S25 Retro Fit Remix)
3. Delia Gonzalez & Gavin Russom – Relevee (Carl Craig Remix/Slam Rework)

Slam have remixed Robert Hood and Carl Craig For Soma Records 500th release.

Soma500 is a very special release that sees label heads Slam visit two memorable tracks for them over this past anniversary year. The duo of Stuart McMillan & Orde Meikle rework Robert Hoods, “The Bond We Formed” - taken exclusively from the Soma25 compilation and a track that has featured highly in countless sets, a unique Slam rework of Carl Craig’s interpretation of Delia Gonzalez & Gavin Russom’s, Relevee.

One of the most sought after tracks from this year’s Soma25 compilation, Robert Hood’s jacked up ‘The Bond We Formed’ is given two unique remixes from Slam. The first remix brings elements of Hood’s original drum workout together with Slam’s spacial sequences. The second remix sees the pair go retro with an homage to the minimal master, utilising proper 90s tripped out tonality.
The B-side brings together the minds of Detroit’s Carl Craig and Slam as the Glaswegian pair rework Carl’s remix into a full on Techno anthem. The instantly recognisable synth work plays the major part with thunderous percussive work helming the backbone of this monster as it swells to a rapturous crescendo.

Tracklist:

3. How Will I? (Imugem Orihasam - Outlook Mix) 

Credits:
Sandro Perri, Larry Gus, Roger Tellier-Craig, Imugem Orihasam 

Release Info: 
(text via Constellation Records) While Sandro Perri's acclaimed and meticulously constructed album 
Impossible Spaceswas a decidedly avant-rock affair conjured from guitar, bass, drums, synth and voice (with flourishes of woodwinds and brass), longtime fans of Perri will also be familiar with his deep roots in electronic music, chiefly via his Polmo Polpo project from the early 2000s. So it was natural for him to tap friends and peers for remixes of the Impossible Spaces material. This yielded an embarrassment of remix riches, spread across a series of three EPs, of which Spaced Out is the third and final installment (following 2012 releases on the DFA and Phonica labels). 

Spaced Out kicks off with what is probably the closest thing to a banger in the entire batch of remix material, courtesy of Larry Gus (DFA, Lefse), whose treatment of "Love & Light" employs over 500 samples extracted from the song's stems. The result is an intricate, dense, exuberantly satisfying groove-based track that chops and channels the woozy rhythmic complexity and mellifluous vocal of the original. This is followed by the pulsing ambient maximalism of Le Révélateur (Root Strata), the current alter-ego of Roger Tellier-Craig (Fly Pan Am, Pas Chic Chic), who reworks "Wolfman" as a beautifully building swarm of layered loops and long delays – an homage of sorts to Perri's own Polmo Polpo sound palette. The EP's B-Side features an extended, non-linear re-interpretation of "How Will I?" by Japanese producer Imugem Orihasam(Fragil) that extrapolates a sweet and loose abstract-House vibe from the original, bringing the highly detailed swing of the song's live drum tracks to the fore, allowing Perri's vocal to unfurl against a minimal, skittering, plunderphonic arrangement. 

We're thrilled to wrap up these Impossible Spaces remixes in a final installment; Spaced Out provides an intense, diverse and richly detailed 22-minute journey that wildly re-imagines the original album across three distinct pieces, each of which remains true to Perri's core aesthetics in uniquely additive fashion.

"NPVR is the moniker taken on board by PITA AKA Peter Rehberg and Factory Floor’s Nik Void. 33 33 is their debut recording. Peter and Nik both share formidable reputations in the post industrial shape-shifting world of sound and form with a vast range of releases and collaborative endeavours over a number of years. Together they tie together their collective experience into a vast array of sonic devices unleashing an album of pragmatic imbalance and psychedelic orientation. Blurring the lines of techno, ambient, avant garde, noise etc 

33 33 positions itself in the nebulous realm of contemporary (dis)comfort presenting itself on the border of music and sound, the social and the private." - Editions Mego.
