A Stone For Angus Maclise

(Ecstatic Yod) Used LP $15.00

Recorded during the same home blasts that produced Dauphin Elegies (VHF Records, 2008), this 2007 trio session for harmonium, singing bowl, gong and esraj is one of Pelt’s most ecstatic. Like the legendary poet / musician for whom it is named, Pelt are not hung up on the epistemology of drones. The generation of meditative trance states is as valid produced by Roscoe Holcomb’s banjo as it is by La Monte Young’s well-tuned piano. Hints of both lurk deep within the two side-long slabs here. Stickered cover, insert. Edition of 500



(Mie Music - 014) 2xLP $15.00

Recorded live in 2011 in Wisconsin (at an old yoga studio and at a decommissioned synagogue), Effigy melts layer upon layer of droning strings over never-ending harmoniums while peals of gongs ring out to mesmerizing effect -- a testament to the ancient animal-shaped effigy mounds which dot the landscape in and around Madison, Wisconsin. Edition of 500



(Eclipse - ECL006) Used LP $15.00

This album is drawn from a pre-dawn session in a stone silo at Mount Saint Francis, a Franciscan friary just north of the Kentucky-Indiana State Line. Four of the musicians, Keenan Lawler and Pelt members Patrick Best, Mike Gangloff and Jack Rose, had played earlier that night at Rudyard Kipling's Cafe in Louisville. They were joined at the friary by Eric Clark, a multi-instrumentalist and metal worker who makes musical instruments, such as singing bowls and bronze didgeridus. Mikal Dimmick used a stereo microphone to capture events as they unfolded in the early morning hours of 12 July 2000. Only acoustic instruments were played and no electronic effects or processing were used. Play at 45 or 33 RPM.
