TREES "Freed Of This Flesh" LP (OUT NOW, LIMITED to 400 BLACK / 100 CLEAR)

"Another grim, blackened, abject slab of crushing ultramega doom from these Northwest doomlords, and like their last one, Lights Bane, Freed Of This Flesh is another gloriously miserable exercise in slow motion pummel and grinding glacial creep... Two extended doomscapes, a black cacophony of downtuned pound, the drums a barely there skeletal support to a heaving crumbling beastly buzz, riffs ring out and slowly decay, the vocals an inhuman shriek, shards of feedback shoot through the smoldering rumble of slowly decaying chords, note pulled apart, riffs blurred into near drones, a sprawling tarpit crawl, hypnotic and mesmerizing, and so so so heavy....Fucking awesome. Essential ultra doom, grim listening for the slow and low legions..." - Aquarius Records

LARKIN GRIMM / EXTRA LIFE split 12" (OUT NOW! WHITE VINYL)

Larkin gives us "Pool of Milk" featuring Caley Monohan-Ward (Extra Life) and Otto Hauser (Espers, Vetiver, Devendra Banhart, etc). While the terrifying "That Avenging Angel", is the spoken voice of her inner, fucked-up child and plays a rogue Moog, theremin, synthesizers, slide guitar, and ukelele. Extra Life drops down a hauntingly beautifull 8.5 minute version of R. Kelly's "Your Body's Callin'"... a favorite in the Extra Life live set. Limited to 500 copies on white vinyl.

SHINING PATH "Take You So Low So You Can Fly So High" (featuring LITTLE HOWLIN WOLF) LP

Side A contains the re-issue of the "Take You So Low So You Can Fly So High" cassette originally released on Brooklyn's T.B.T.D in a edition of 100. Side B contains a collaboration with Little Howlin Wolf live at the Marquise Dance Hall in Brooklyn.

"...a scorching blend of vintage space rock from aggressive Kraut rock keyboards, No Wave noise breaks and Spacemen 3 drug swagger. The band consists of Preston Swirnoff and Ilya Monosov and these two freaks lay it on with a kind of death wish squall that reminds me why I did LSD in the first place. The Shining Path go straight to the center of the earth rather than into the sun, seeing all the dirt and garbage along the way... Shining Path have a full length out as well on Holy Mountain, although I haven't heard it, I will most likely seek it out now." FADER MAGAZINE

EXTRA LIFE "Secular Works" CD OUT OF STOCK

Extra Life, led by New York-based guitarist/vocalist Charlie Looker (ZS, Ocrilim, Dirty Projectors). While the music retains some of the heady instrumental abstraction of his work in ZS, Extra Life moves into a far more melodic song-based realm. The compositions are still epic, complex and aggressive, yet with a lush, personal, dramatic spirit; dark, heavy avant chamber pop with a cold Gothic beauty echoing that of Medieval chant.

"... mantric guitar and voice piece with laser-like focus. [Looker's] aesthetic sometimes suggests a futuristic refraction of the blues." - Time Out New York

ZS "Arms" CD ON SALE!

This is by far their best release to date! ZS is the New York band working between the worlds of Avant Rock and New Music. Mostly instrumental, the music often explores the extremes of compositional complexity and virtuosity as well as extended repetition. The sound ranges from "brutal chamber music" to bombastic Prog Rock counterpoint to barely audible breathing sounds to mournful jazz drones. Math rock rhythms, insane time signatures, over the top melodies...it's all here.
