Bing & Ruth – Tomorrow Was the Golden Age Limited Edition 2xLP Giveaway

Seems like just last week we were praising the new album from Bing & Ruth. Well, it was. We’re a little worried that some of you did not take us seriously – so we’ve partnered up with the label to give away one copy of the limited edition, colored vinyl (now sold out!). You guys know the rules. We will pick a winner tomorrow. In the meantime, if you know that you are the unlucky sort, just go pick up a copy on black vinyl over at igetrvng.com.

To enter the giveaway, just comment on this post. A winner will be picked at random on Friday morning. Please only enter once, we will be checking for double-ups. If your comment doesn’t show up right away, be patient, it is probably awaiting moderation. Bless!

Berk Offset – Die Riemannsche Vermutung 12″

Not really sure what’s going on here. There has a been some really great and really wonky techno records coming out this year, and this one is no exception. ‘Die Riemannsche Vermutung’ is a monster of minimal techno slinking and shuffling around a party with a limited range of motion…and may or may not have something to do with that the non-trivial zeros of the Riemann zeta function all have real part ½. What we DO know is the artwork is bonkers and is another contender for sleeve of the year.

Anyway, check it at Experimedia

Tape Tuesday: Aging – Troubles? I Got A Bartender

Lets talk about Tombed Visions for a second. The releases on this rad UK label have been flying under all the radars we’re aware of..but we’re going to change that. Not 100% on exactly when this tape from Aging was actually released, but what matters is that it seems to be available and this is were you, the readers, enter the fray. “Troubles? I Got A Bartender” is a late night free jazz record, but with a slower pacing than you might come to expect from the genre. Jangly guitars, melancholic horns, grave Rhodes runs and possessed drumming swirl around like the smoke from ashtrays in a lonely bar somewhere underneath an overpass.

Available in an edition of 50 copies with these super slick oversized cases and some excellent artwork that is right in line with the rest of the labels output. Drink up, knights of the pint.

Tape Tuesday: Digitalis

Just in case you’ve been living under a rock—or on Neptune—there is a new batch of tapes from the one and only Digitalis. When he’s not producing mind bending instrumentals as Charlatan, Brad Rose is slinging some of the best experimental/left-field music that exists. These new ones from Sound Out Light, wzrdryAV, Benjamin Finger and Mind Dynamics only help to further this point. There is something for everyone here: scattered electronics, blissed out atmospheres, infectious grooves and maniacal beats. An excellent cross section of exploratory musicians creating fearless art.

Each tape is limited to 50 copies. Choose your own adventure.

Andrew Pekler – The Prepaid Piano & Replayed LP

In line with the prepared works of John Cage, Pekler has also tackled the piano with a modern twist that we could only imagine Cage would delight it. The A side of this long player contains participatory recordings wherein audience members of a performance in Berlin were invited to call mobile phones placed inside the performers piano (hence Pekler’s play on Cage’s original title) which would vibrate the strings and the signal would be passed along to a modular synthesizer via contact mics. The B side contains recordings from The Prepaid Piano which are then translated to MIDI notes via Ableton Live. Bonkers, right?

Available from Senufo Editions in an edition of 300

Richard Youngs – Red Alphabet In The Snow LP

The multi-instrumentalist Richard Youngs has a new record on Poland’s Preserved Sound label. Bright and glowing, ‘Red Alphabet In The Snow’ is a shower of shimmering strings of all varieties and 60’s era Cat Stevens-ish vocal acrobatics. The LP is 180g and is an edition of 250 copies. As a bonus, the first 100 copies include a CDr (whatever that is) of the album …both in handmade recycled sleeves, which is always cool. Reach out and touch something someone else has!

Drophead vs. Silent Land Time Machine – From Ashes Comes the Day LP

Montréal’s Eric Craven (of HRSTA fame) and Holodeck head honcho Jonathan Slade (Silent Land Time Machine) are set for a sonic struggle on ‘From Ashes Comes the Day.’ Feedback and distortion abound as classical string movements battle with blown out guitar passages for center stage. After the dust and decay of these two side length movements settles, it becomes evident that the creative tension presented here is the ultimate spoil of war, regardless of the victor.

Limited to 300 copies in silkscreened jackets. There is also a cassette edition of 200 copies for all you tape heads out there as well.

Al Cisneros – Empty Tomb b/w Sepulcher Dub 7″

David V. D’Andrea, illustrator extraordinaire, is now releasing music in addition to his amazing drawings and prints via his Samaritan Press imprint. First up: dubby spirituals from Al Cisneros of OM/Sleep fame that are in line with his most recent solo material. Out-there-somewhere melodies, ghostly vocals and steady beats.

The 7”s themselves have all kinds of handmade goodness about them. Hand stamped records, screen printed inserts and hand pressed chipboard jackets. Limited to 1000 copies. At $25 dollars, this is quite an investment. That being said, a portion of the first month’s sales will go to charity so, you know, Samaritan Press right? Travel on.
