Reissue of Lay Llamas first cassette, originally released by Jozik Records in November 2012, with one bonus and exclusive track. The Lay Llamas consist of the Sicilian-born and raised but now Rome-based cosmic duo of Gioele Valenti and Nicola Giunta. Fluorescent and hallucinogenic, Lay Llamas’ sonic brew flows down space and time paths, caught somewhere between syncretic spirituality and sidereal forest sounds, imaginary exoticism and venerable sonic artisans. Slow, rhythmic march of ancient warriors patrolling unknown planets in search of new, miraculous rivers: SPACE JUNGLE MANTRA.

Both have been revised and remixed into a coherent album in its own right, deep and gripping, with two completely new tracks, including the mind-blowing dance floor killer "Martyr".

MAJEURE - SOLAR MAXIMUM
(Temporary Residence #TRR212, LP - black vinyl - 6 tracks)

Multi-instrumentalist and sci-fi prog-rock explorer A.E. Paterra returns with his second proper full-length as MAJEURE. Following closely on the heels of his beloved but scarcely limited split album with fellow Zombi cohort STEVE MOORE, Solar Maximum expands on the cinematic, atmospheric vision alluded by his 2010 debut album, Timespan. Once again composing, performing, and producing the entire album, Paterra broadens the MAJEURE cosmos with an increased focus on moody synths and an almost inhuman level of patience in the payoff. Drawing influence from 70s celestial film scores, ambient krautrock, and dexterous vintage prog-rock, Solar Maximum trades in the cosmic disco of Timespan for a more spacious and ominous feel that lives up to its ambiguously ambitious title. mp3 mp3 mp3 mp3

M.B. - MAURIZO BIANCHI / RYAN MARTIN - AS STRONG AS DEATH IS
(Backwards # BW16, DLP - 4 tracks)

Spanning the course of two years to create, legendary Italian noise composer Maurizio Bianchi and artist Ryan Martin (York Factory Complaint / Copley Medal / Dais Records) took on the pilgrimage of scoring the abstract concept of marriage based on the biblical Song of Solomon. Employing prepared electronics with accompanying strings and tape, this ambient religious collaboration seeks to flesh out the union, to understand the universal desire to be one. Constricted lullabies walk down the aisle to create a consortium of moving, ghost-like consolidation. Mixed ad edited by Anthony Mangicapra (Hoor-paar-Kraat) and mastered by Kris Lapke (Alberich / Hospital Productions). Recorded in both New York City and Opera, Italy between 2010 and 2012, this release was originally released in 2013 as a limited double cassette on Martin's own Robert & Leopold imprint in a edition of 100 copies, which quickly went out of print.

MEN IN BURKA - TECHNO ALLAH
(Robot Elephant # RER017, 12" - 6 tracks - lim. edition of 200 copies)

Men in Burka got its start in September 2011, just as Khan's previous project with Mario Zoots and Kristy Fenton, Modern Witch, was becoming less active. Up to that point, Khan, the son of a white American woman and a Pakistani man, hadn't had the chance to fully express his own mixed-culture reality. But as his involvement with Modern Witch was winding down, he began writing music that was reflective of his background, and he showed it to Zoots and Strange Powers, his longtime musical collaborators, who were both fans of Kahn's '90s-era hip-hop crew, Future Reference. Their self-titled debut with the Bay Area's Tundra Dubs label was released in May 2012. The album was a blend of various Middle Eastern themes and influenced by the rhythms of modern dance music including Chicago House, Hip Hop, Bass, Electro and Bounce. Techno Allah explores the sound of Men in Burka further - with the A-side representing their signature sample-driven Dance tracks, and the B-side exploring a more psychedelic mood.

MICK MILK - WAIT FOR GO
(Attractive Coordinates # ATCO7, 7" - black vinyl - in foc + postcard - 3 tracks - lim. edition of 250 copies)

MICK MILK was the early 80's musical outlet of DIY-synth master and guitarist Mick M., back then hailing from New York City, USA. Basically equipped with a Korg MS-20 & MS-10, Casiotone 202, Boss DR-55, Roland TR-606 and other recording gear and effect units, Mick recorded a few dozen of incredibly amazing tracks which cannot be described other than superbly creative in terms of using analogue synthesisers for sound design and song arrangement in electronic pop music while adding brilliant and unique vocal moments to the whole. Even though his music was almost abnormally rich in ideas and both technical and playing skills, proper comparisons are other representatives of the weirder kind of electronic pop music and ahead-of-their-times projects such like Richard Bone, Our Daughter's Wedding, John Bender or Der Plan and Devo. In 1982, Mick recorded his one and only vinyl release, "Half Life" for Cyclops Records (CY-903), a 12" single which also featured famous names Man Parrish and Raul A. Rodriguez as producers. In 2012, Anna Logue Records has carefully selected and compiled the 14 obscure, electronic and label-fitting tracks from his demo tape "Songs for Citizens (1982)" and a batch of previously unreleased tracks from 1982-83. This new 7"EP compiles another three tracks from that era, yet even more obscure and perfectly fitting the Attractive Co-ordinates label. Mastered by Mick himself. mp3 mp3

MIXED FEELINGS - REMNANTS
(Medical Records, # MR-041, LP, heavyweight splatter vinyl, ltd)

Medical Records in partnership with Crispy Nuggets present the unreleased recordings of England’s Mixed Feelings. Mixed Feelings grew up in Basildon which was also the home of Depeche Mode (in fact, they went to the same school). In 1981, Sean Cooper met Martin Gore on holiday (around the time of “New Life”), and they instantly hit it off discussing synthesizers, school, teachers, etc. Martin was inspirational for Sean to follow his dream of making music. After a few bands, Sean started a band with longtime friend Geoff with influences like old disco (Chic, etc) and a bit of Bauhaus, PIL, etc for good measure. The first incarnation was called Polyphonic Movements but changed to Mixed Feelings after their friends Mark, Alan, and Pete joined the band. They played shows at school and various locations until 1982 when they first entered a studio and recorded “Final Demand”, “Because Of You”, and “Ice Machine”. These tracks received some local airplay, and they continued to play more gigs. A year later, they entered the studio again to record a few more tracks (one of which was “Another Place” which ended up on the 101 Record Compilation). Sadly, after a few more cheap recording sessions, the band split up in 1984. This LP is a brilliant snapshot into the minds and talent of a group of young musicians on a mission. Highly influenced by early Depeche Mode, Human League, and Soft Cell, this collection of tracks will certainly appeal to fans of the mentioned acts as well as classic new wave acts such as Gary Numan, Ultravox, and Thompson Twins.

MODERN WITCH - BABYLON
(Treue um Treue, # TuT026, LP, black vinyl - 12 tracks - 1 insert - ltd ed. of +/- 300 copies)

“Babylon” is the twin-LP to last year’s “Hollywood”, the second and last part of the MODERN WITCH retrospective on TuT/RuR.
The story of MODERN WITCH began 7 years ago in Denver, Colorado, when graphic artist Mario Zoots, singer Kristy Fenton and house veteran Kamran Khan started recording experimental music together on an old VHS camera. In the space of a few years, a couple of very limited tape and CD/R releases on labels such as Disaro and Clan Destine Records, and a series of spooky performances both in Europe and on the American continent, the trio has become a true underground reference for creepy, ritualistic dance music, in the muddy but oh so fascinating waters between Witchhouse and Minimal Synth. Drunk on 80s cold wave, bathed in suburbian occult decadence and haunted by dead celebrities, “Hollywood” and “Babylon” are a feast of thaumaturgic synth lines, nonchalant but captivating mpc 1000 – sequences, drugged-out spoken words and ghostly voices. American Angst or Minimal Doom electronics at their best!

MONOPOL - WELTWEIT
(Anna Logue Records / Medical Records, LP, black vinyl, 180 gr, with insert, ltd 650)

Anna Logue Records collaborates with their good friends Medical Records across the pond in the US to present the long out of print Neue Deutsche Welle cult classic album Weltweit by MONOPOL. Released in 1982, Weltweit was the sole output of the band. It has appropriately become quite rare and difficult to find with the resulting high prices to obtain an original copy. Inspired by the greats such as Kraftwerk, YMO and Klaus Schulze, the three members crafted an exquisite collection of pop songs played on a very impressive collection of analog synthesizers, self-builds and drum machines that were considered cutting edge at the time. The band would have recorded a second album but split up before that was possible. Members of the band continued to be involved in the music industry at least peripherally but didn’t participate in further collaborations or bands. Also interestingly, MONOPOL was basically a studio-only project and actually never played live (despite some TV appearances). The album has been remastered by Martin Bowes at the Cage, UK. Contains a special bonus insert with lyrics and photos. Definitely a must-have for fans of NDW such as Grauzone, Rheingold and the like.

We got our hands on some copies of the cult Roman band's fabulous album from 2005. A meeting of giants, "Water" was written by Raffaelle Cerroni and J.Weber, featuring Frl. Tost, Clau D.E.D.I. and DBPIT. It is at the same time a deeply emotional, highly hypnotic and indeniably poetic journey, incorporating in its complex and sometimes disorientating textures acoustic and electronic instrumentation, field-recordings and vocals, rhythms and introspective soundscapes, to create a world of its own, more Atlantean than Mediterranean, and a true masterpiece of sonic surrealism...

THE MUSKETS - ALLEGIANCE TO NO CROWN
(Old Europa Café # OEMP016, 10" - red vinyl - 7 tracks - ltd 300)

The Muskets is a super-group formed by b9 InViD (Et Nihil, Luftwaffe), Thomas Nola, Erin Powell (Awen) and David E. Williams, plus Andrew King as special guest. The Muskets celebrate the founding of the American nation itself with contemporary versions of battle songs from the period. While untraditional recordings and even performances of these songs are very rare, The Muskets march them into the 21st century with acoustic psychedelia, noisy martial pop and choral dark ambience. There is a hymnlike quality to these tunes, whether they express the dread of a loved one "gone for a soldier" or the joy of a last debauch before certain death. Weaving between the tracks like a doddering demented lion, a sour King George III condemns, laments and eventually accepts the triumph of liberty, to the accompaniment of disembodied trumpets and distant drums.

(cendres) is the first proper long player in seven years from the Breton drone lord and finds NATURE MORTE attempting an even bleaker and more eschatological sound. The shadowy and ominous music unwinds languorously, leading the way through some deep dark and fearful passage. Here and then in the midst of all that crepuscular fogginess some sweetly mournful and hypnotic melodies shed a dim light on what once was. Everything beloved and familiar has been reduced to ashes and the sinister cinematic drones act like a psychopomp guiding the listener through the desolate wasteland.

(Reue um Reue / La Nébuleuse Pourpre # R.U.R. 025 / NP02, 10" - black vinyl + texts in French on silver-printed black cardboard inlays, in fold-out sleeve - comes in 12 different cover versions- 2 tracks - ltd to 191 hand-numbered copies)

More than just a record, “Restes d’une chose brisée” is the outcome of an intimate collaboration between music and writing. Based on a series of thirteen short texts by young French writer JEANNE MONTSÉGUR, this symbiotic work unfolds like a Dantesque journey. On each step of the way NATURE MORTE’s abyssal drones echo the desperate intensity and ruthless honesty of Jeanne’s words, opening her wounds to chasms, sustaining the inner conflict and the baring of feelings by an almost unbearable tension which, when it finally breaks, strikes the listener as surely as the incisiveness of her words. At the end of the voyage there is hope, seeping between the lines and through the grooves as the drones recede and give way to luminous reeds, leaving the reader-listener shaken, colder and gloomier than before, but maybe a little wiser too. mp3s + artwork

NEUGEBORENE NACHTMUSIK - KOMME, WAS KOMMEN MAG
(Enfant Terrible, # petit enfant 013, 7" - 2 tracks - ltd 200)

Berlin based, but from Dutch origin, Neugeborene Nachtmusik has come up with two rather weird pieces, dancefloor friendly, playful and bold... call it Dada pop or anti-pop music. A different side of Neugeborene Nachtmusik from what you might know from last year's LP but a seriously fun side. Minimal synth sounds with a twist. mp3 mp3

NEUGEBORENE NACHTMUSIK - S/T
(Enfant Terrible, # ET040, LP - black vinyl - 6 tracks - ltd 200)

Some years ago an album by Dutch band Milligram Retreat (Enfant19, 2011) was released on Enfant Terrible. Sadly the project was short lived, but straight after the project came to an end Maurice Hermes, the mastermind behind it, started his solo project called Neugeborene Nachtmusik. Now is the time to pour his debut album out over you… an album simple entitled “Neugeborene Nachtmusik” and highly awaited… Residing in Berlin Neugeborene Nachtmusik has shaped his music more and more these past few years into an unique style of this own… some results of this were displayed already on the various artists releases “Exploitation” (ET017, 2012), “I Am Enfant Terrible” (ETX, 2014) and “Post-everything” (ET034, 2014)… This album is a pitch black experience… a shamanistic ritual and a dark trip which takes you by the hand and leads you beyond and back… you get served six long tracks with effective minimalism and trance indulging sounds… influences from elektro, techno, industrial, noise and (black) metal can be traced… the album is diverse but coherent in displaying the specific personal style of Neugeborene Nachtmusik.

NEUROBIT - MOIRA
(Vrystaete, # Vrystaete 05, LP - black vinyl -hand printed silk screen in 3 different colour variations - ltd 150)

Some years ago Neurobit released a 7" on Enfant Terrible with minimal music very much in the style of Terry Riley. Now Neurobit return with a very different sound, much less electronic in orientation. This mini LP "Moira" sounds like some obscure Asian ensemble playing contemporary ambient and drone music... music also somewhat reminiscent of some of the stuff Philip Glass did and in the distant you hear sounds and moods related to the music of Sarah Davachi and Antti Tolvi. But in the end it is just the perfect music to have a mellow and relaxed trip on. mp3 mp3 mp3 mp3

NIEDOWIERZANIE - JE NE SUIS PAS LÀ, JE NE SUIS PAS MORT
(Reue um Reue # R.U.R. 039, Cass - C42 Chrome Plus tape, silk-screened gold on transparent blue shell - ltd 100)

After the excellent "Paradies" CD out last year on Zoharum, our favorite lamenting troubadour is back on reel with the grooviest and also saddest NIEDOWIERZANIE album to date. On "Je ne suis pas là, je ne suis pas mort" ( "I'm not here, I'm not dead") the sun drenched mal de vivre, the mediterranean despair and bohemian misery reaches unchartered heights, inviting the listener to joyfully swing along over the debris of a mislead existence. Punchy rhythm machines and swag synth basslines collide with washed out mandoline chords and swirling accordion, urban modernity encounters folklore, east meets west & This is where all antagonisms join in the cheery carousel of exasperation. mp3 mp3 mp3 mp3 mp3 mp3 mp3

NIEDOWIERZANIE - ATTENDRE
(Reue um Reue # R.U.R. 021, LP - black vinyl - 12 tracks - lim. edition of 198 hand-numbered copies)

Three years and many live gigs after the self-titled debut, Niedowierzanie’s music has lost nothing of his maestria and exotic flavour. The complex compositions using a variety of acoustic instruments and digital effects still tell us of faraway places, conjuring vivid pictures of south-American landscapes, Mediterranean balconies and eastern harbours. But it has also become more accessible, leaving behind the long experimental pieces and turning instead to shorter, more rhythmic, even danceable songs full of Bohemian romanticism and Mediterranean flair. Dreamy, lazily swaying ballads alternate with somber pieces like funeral marches in the heat and dust of a summer evening, revealing sudden pangs of unease and anguish behind the flowing southern nonchalance. With “Attendre”, Niedowierzanie delivers a masterpiece of Post-Mediterranea worthy of such legends as Novy Svet or Mushroom’s Patience. mp3 mp3 mp3 mp3

NOVY SVET / SPETTRO FAMILY - Split
(Black Horizons, # BH-71, 7" - 2 tracks - ltd 500: 100 copies on blue vinyl with a hand numbered drop card, the other 400 on black)

A superb pairing of new and old become anew once again. The Viennese duo Novy Svet is making music after an extended silence, and this 7" is the first new material available besides a very scarcely distributed yet excellent split 7" with Susa24 (member from Santa Espina, see BH-76). The sounds that emanate from the pair of Jürgen Weber and frl. tost are extremely unorthodox for the dark folk milieu, in that they are not afraid to reach out in many non-traditional directions; multi-lingual lyrics, broad genre bending and meshing, and an over-all style that could be perceived as rather modern, a perfect fit for the curatorial standards of Black Horizons. Spettro Family, from Milan, Italy, is a new project that has quickly gained attention, and rightfully so, as he has his own unique Mediterranean take on cinematic prog horror scapes. Sleeve is printed with silver and gold ink on black linen card stock. The faces on the cover are of Jarboe and Jessica Way (Worm Ouroboros, Barren Harvest) and are photos that were taken at the 2013 Stella Natura Festival. The inspiration for the layout theme comes from a specific scene in Ingmar Bergman's Persona. Silver on black labels.

Ô PARADIS - LLEGA EL AMOR ASOMA LA MUERTE
(Dark Vinyl # DV66, CD, in 6-page eco-digifile, 10 tracks)

LLEGA EL AMOR, ASOMA LA MUERTE is the new studio album by Ô PARADIS. Ô Paradis is the work of Demian Recio. For fifteen years now Demian has been creating a melancholic Mediterranean feeling in his music, free from all general trends and hypes. If we understand the work of Ô Paradis as a long search for Demian`s own aim, we could say that his new creature "Llega el Amor, Asoma la Muerte" can be seen as his "Ithaca" or personal masterpiece. There are fresh new inspirations / directions in this album, but we recognize also a homecoming to his old love for Latin music and the melancholy of English folk music, but all under the gaze / banner of death. Ladies and gentlemen, you are invited to participate : "La Muerte" (Death) is coming with a smile on his face.

ORDRE ETERN - REVOLUCIÓ SOTERRADA
(Magia Roja / Tesla tapes, MR011 / Tesla V001, LP, green vinyl, 7 tracks, ltd)

Following in the tradition of the dark and stark imaginary of artists such as Lorka and with distinct Mediterranean fire, the sound of Ordre Etern is bleak and vile as the void the spirit of their city represents. Ordre Etern is not the defeat but the struggle, the endless struggle, and the celebration of the endless crises-not just economic, but moral-of present times. With lyrics dark as the period that brought them to light, they speak of fighting and resisting in a cruel present, against adversity, urban and moral desolation and the divide between the two natures of man. With feedbacking drums that ressemble guitars and guitars that ressemble shards of metal-without a single note-together with electronic and modified drums, synths and tímpani, Ordre Etern have created a dystopic postindustrial nightmare.
