New Arrivals #353

Our latest list.

Records Of The Week:

HEADS "Relaxing With The Heads" (Rooster) 2cd $16.98
Killer reissue of the 1996 debut record from these UK space rock rifflords, perfectly timed to school the current crop of young punk space rock wannabes, still the heaviest hookiest space rock record ever, even nearly 15 years later, with a whole bonus disc of extra tracks, B sides and Peel Sessions...
TRISTAN PERICH "1-Bit Symphony" (Cantaloupe Music) jewel case 1-bit electronic music generator $30.00
The second of Perich's cool musical devices and 1-bit compositions, a series of weirdly lush lo-fi loopscapes created with exclusively 1 bit sounds, in a little jewel case contained music generator, easily the coolest music gizmo since the Buddha Machine, with some gorgeous tunes built in to boot.
CHRISTIAN MISTRESS "Agony And Opium" (20 Buck Spin) cd/lp 10.98/14.98
Awesome NWOBHM style true melodic metal from this Olympia outfit, old school and original, with epic riffing, REAL singing, totally hooky and heavy and incredible, Fenriz from Darkthrone endorsed thusly: "heavy metal the old way, the exact way we enjoy it ourselves"!!
MOEBIUS & BEERBOHM "Double Cut" (Bureau B) cd $17.98
Welcome reissue of this early eighties post Cluster collaboration, that's not so much krautrock as an otherworldly version of minimal techno, a way ahead of its time proto Chain Reaction electronica, mesmerizing and menacing and so incredible!
