Guerilla Toss – What Would The Odd Do? (NNA Tapes)
New Ep! Can’t wait to see the Toss at @boweryballroom
Guerilla Toss returns to NNA Tapes with a brand new EP, ‘What Would The Odd Do?’, an exploration into new territories and an expansion on their recipe for twisted, addictive rock & roll mania: fried funk, damaged dance, and cosmic cacophony. Fans of 70’s prog and rock greats like King Crimson and Todd Rundgren as well as modern torchbearers like Sheer Mag and Deerhoof will be joyfully united by GT’s uniquely familiar world of wonder and excitement.
Ekoplekz – In Search Of The Third Mantra (Front and Follow)
We’ve gone & done a tape with @ekoplekz.
It’s pretty wonderful, but you probably knew that already.

Whistling Arrow – S/T (God Unknown Records)
Fine, genre-indifferent work from the mighty @charleshayward with @laurarecorder @ExEIH & Andre Bosman…
Buildings – Negative Sound (Gilead Media)
BEYOND excited a new Buildings album is coming. Nice little sleazy swagger to the first jawn out in the world.
Back for round two with Gilead Media, we are stoked to announce that Buildings have completed their fourth full-length, NEGATIVE SOUND, and it is schedule to be released November 22nd, 2019.
The trio hails from Minneapolis, a city already well known for its connection to noise rock. They stand alongside other Gilead Media bands Couch Slut and Kowloon Walled City as a select group of artists masterfully harnessing overdriven, rhythmic, and noisy riffs.

Planetary Assault Systems – Plantae (Ostgut Ton)
New Planetary Assault Systems. Av it.
Overthought Musik – Album (Self Released)
Having stepped aside from playing in bands (Motel Beds/Company Man), multi-instrumentalist and total sweetheart, D Robbins finally decided to just stay home and step exclusively into producer shoes. “I kind of lost interest in the band thing and really just wanted to make tracks around vocalists that I wanted to work with, so that’s where I went.”
After creating a handful of individual projects on his Overthought Musik label based on different styles and vocalists (Plasteroid, Lute Student, etc), the idea to make a full LP featuring multiple vocalists appeared. “I had some aborted songs with various people and got the idea to finish those and start enough new ones for a full LP. There’s a lot of really great singers in my vicinity, so I just made custom arrangements that I thought fitted each of them. And this is how I’m going to get super rich.”
SUSS – High Line (Northern Spy Records)
High Line represents a new path into the high country for the NYC ambient country quintet known as SUSS. The follow-up release to their acclaimed album Ghost Box (Expanded) on Northern Spy Records, High Line explores the horizon line where the cosmic meets the landscape of the American West. Drawing on influences such as Ry Cooder and Bruce Langhorne while forging new paths alongside fellow travelers like Daniel Lanois and Boards of Canada, SUSS uses a combination of acoustic guitars, pedal steel, harmonica, mandolin and synthesized sound manipulation to take the listener on a blissful and mythic trip into the unknown.

The High Sheriffs – High Sheriffs (Garden Portal)

Belial Pelegrim – Imitation Of Faith (Bricolage)
We’ve been sitting on this for a while but can finally announce that our 50th release on the label is set to be a cassette crammed with sonic dark matter from the electronic wizard that is @pelegrim
“Imitation Of Faith” is out 15/11/19
Brigitte Bardon’t – Radio Songs (Already Dead Records & Tapes)
Five years, twelve towns and cities, and three countries: Radio Songs by is the debut solo album from Toronto’s Brigitte Bardon’t. Here, Bardon’t’s haunting vocals are absent — these twelve tracks feature only radio and field recordings, layered, collaged, sampled back, slowed, or recorded straight in one shot. Inspired by DJ Screw, Maria Chavez, Christian Marclay, and Nike7up, these noise and pop compositions dial into the radio as an emotional barometer of place and time.
Jessica Ekomane – Multivocal (Important Records)
Loopy zonky sounds from former Bandcloud guest mixer Jessica Ekomane on @imprec
Olga Wojciechowska – Infinite Distances (A Strangely Isolated Place)
Olga’s work has always been one of those “instant purchases” for me, ever since hearing it first on Serein label…excited to listen to her new album on the inimitable @asip next
Antoinette Konan – S/T (Awesome Tapes from Africa)
Forthcoming reissue from Ivorian singer/percussionist Antoinette Konan
It makes sense that Antoinette Konan’s eponymous album features nothing more than her ahoko on the cover. The deceptively simple traditional percussion instrument transformed Ivory Coast’s Baoulé music scene when Konan deployed it against a roaring electrified backdrop of synth, bass guitar and drum machines. Released in 1986, the album is a veritable UFO of instrumental force and contemporary pop sensibility landing in a boiling pot of diverse, creative characters inhabiting Abidjan, Ivory Coast (Côte d’Ivoire).
