(Kye - KYE26) LP $16.50 (Out-of-stock)

Mark Harwood and sometime collaborator Maja Larsson complicate reason with dark and circuitous audio constructs. Inspired by Gerard Murnane’s 1988 novel of the same name, and executed using piano, bells, tapes, gong, autoharp, hammer, television, organ, and dry ice pellets, Inland explores a personalized perception of space, both real and imagined. The duo’s fabricated dreamworld teases logic, tricks the ear, cuts the face of expectation, and exposes a ten-part fractal sonic geography, governed by its own laws, and flushed with all the beauty and horror of the natural world. Edition of 400.



(Kye - KYE19) LP $15.25 (Out-of-stock)

Debut LP by a new seductive and puzzling voice from the Australian wilderness of Ferntree Gully, Victoria -- collecting the crème de la crème of a string of micro-edition CDRs. Field recordings of humble organic activity bend against a foundation of discreetly processed electronics and piano, creating sonorities that are as indefinable as they are unforgettable. Ideal for fans of fringe position electro-acoustic study and Delphic audio confusion, or anyone who pines for the days when Small Cruel Party still roamed the earth. Edition of 350.


Sunday Night, Sunday Afternoon

(Kye - KYE17) LP $16.00 (Out-of-stock)

Bassett and Lubelski have both played crucial roles in the development of underground sound over the last twenty years, tinting the broad waters of abstract folk, chromatic noise and long-form drone. The two sidelong forays into deep, black-string meditation here hang in the air like ghosts on Ludlow Street. Edition of 500.


The Bowles

(Kye - KYE705) 7-inch $11.25 (Out-of-stock)

The briefly extant Australian trio of Matthew P. Hopkins, Christopher Schueler (R.I.P.) and Mary MacDougal came together in 2009 and plied their craft across the patchwork of warehouses, attics and D.I.Y. artspaces connecting the Blue Mountains of New South Wales to inner city Sydney, before imploding later that same year. This six-track overview, recorded live to Dictaphone in Sydney, consists of murky cassette montages, strung-out 3am ballads and exquisite-corpse-style constructs that unify and define an original voice few have heard. Includes color postcard. Edition of 350.


The Rising

(Kye - KYE12) LP $16.50 (Out-of-stock)

Tim Goss and Chloe Mutter have been locked in perfect isolation since 2010, teasing every nuance of their sound into sharp focus, mastering cryptic intent. Homespun keyboard minimalism, wavering teenage laments, and foreboding pronouncements of doom synthesize into new, original matrices of thought. The Rising also introduces the guitar heroics of some-time third member, Big Rob Stewart, who lays down the law in crude basement style. Edition of 1000


The Marianne

(Kye - KYE23) LP $16.50 (Out-of-stock)

The questing, narrative themes of The Rising (Kye 2011) and Incidents of Travel (White Denim 2012) extrapolated into a three-part conceptual odyssey. Set aboard the cruise liner of the same name, The Marianne charts the epic voyage of Capt. Fletcher and his patrons as they passage across the “sour ocean,” through a prism of supernature and on toward an uncertain end. Sea-foam green vinyl. Edition of 400.


Sounds of Sacred Places

(Kye - KYE13) CD $15.00 (Out-of-stock)

"The presence of water and an enormous monolith in the midst of the vast desert plain is given as an explanation [for the] magical appeal [of] the 'Shadowgiving Mountain' of the Aborigines," writes the artist, "Better known under its western name ... Ayers Rock (Australia)...." [T]heir ancestors, the 'Dreamtime People' ... live in this mountain and speak to them in the sounds of the winds howling through the crevasses and rockholes. Uluru is also the dwelling-place of the 'World Serpent', the most powerful totem shared by the surrounding tribes. Sounds of Sacred Places attempts to transform the listener into a living witness of the sounds of similar places, not far away in any specific ethnic culture, but in Flanders." Kye's CD reissue of Sounds of Sacred Places (Igloo 1987) includes a 16-page booklet of photos and notes. Remastered from the original tapes by Darge. Edition of 500.


Million Year Spree

(Kye - KYE14) split LP $15.00 (Out-of-stock)

No-fi acoustic sewage from Hamilton, Ontario's Fossils, a stream of dire handcut confusion. Darksmith of California combines wilting electronics, floppy turntablism and sun-baked cassette protocols and destroys them in a claustrophobic void. Edition of 400.


French Antarctica

(Kye - KYE24) Used LP $16.50 (Out-of-stock)

Drawing from a palette of guitar, rhythm box, cornet, shortwave radio and room activity, the debut LP by Good Area bypasses such obsolete concepts as dexterity and restraint, and cuts loose with a raw unbridled rush of creative force, bristling with home-spun malevolence and anti-social aplomb. The ultimate stand-alone testament to instantaneous expression. Good Area harvests the wisdom passed down from the Decayes, Semool, Nishimura Alimoti and other bastions of shoe-box cassette culture and transcribe their teachings into epic new screeds of confusion. With commemorative postcard. Edition of 400.



(Kye - KYE11) LP $15.00 (Out-of-stock)

Five-part electro-acoustic study by London-based sound architect Luke Younger (Birds of Delay) that uses processed piano, Casio MT-40, cymbal and guitar strings to explore fringe territories. Glacial drone meditations, reconfigured gamelan clusters, and howling walls of organized feedback coalesce in classic UK post-industrial fashion. Full color sleeve with insert. Numbered edition of 400.


Rules Of The Universe

(Kye - KYE25) 2xLP $26.00 (Out-of-stock)

Fully authorized anthology of archival audio work by the Dutch artist whose stature in visual arts is well known and internationally celebrated, but scant documentation of his audio work has been difficult to locate. Recordings of Heyboer’s anomalous music trickled out on micro-edition CDs and CDRs through the Anton Heyboer Foundation in the 1990s, decades after his She And She As One LP (EMI 1976 ) introduced a music so resolutely personal and uncommercial in nature that the label withdrew and destroyed the unsold copies. With full approval from VOF Heyboer and overseen by Lotti Heyboer, Rules Of The Universe draws from over seven hours of surviving archival tapes, restoring the cream of the CDR editions, supplementing it with a selection of previously unheard tracks, and ultimately offering a fresh reappraisal of a lesser-known but no less important field of creativity from one of the 20th Century’s most original artistic minds. Gatefold sleeve, fold-out color poster, edition of 500.


Music From The Impossible Salon

(Kye - KYE10) LP $15.00 (Out-of-stock)

Positioned on the frontline in the ageless battle for aesthetic purity, Scott Foust and Karla Borecky's minimal yet striking gestures in eight elegant settings variously combine piano, synth, radio, trombone, organ, gong and voice. Music From The Impossible Salon is a dusky pleasure center where jaded listeners can find discreet interruption from the horrors of the day. Numbered edition of 300.


Softly Softly Copy Copy

(Kye) Used CD $25.00

Field / location recordings (sampled water, ringing bells, bird calls, etc.) with the occasional violin (Samara Lubelski) and acoustic guitar (Austin Argentieri). There is constant disruption of the music’s assumed trajectory: crescendos are cut off, buildups interrupted, and conventional harmonic sensibilities nearly obliterated. A study of sound and non-sound.


Salmon Run

(Kye) Used CD $25.00 (Out-of-stock)

Carefully constructed arrays of sound.


Amateur Doubles

(Kye - KYE15) LP $15.00 (Out-of-stock)

A two-part improvisation recorded in a Honda Civic. Dangerous, tedious, pointless and timeless, a perfect snapshot of life on the open road. Gatefold jacket, clear vinyl. Edition of 500.


Abersayne b/w Attersaye

(Kye - KYE706) 7-inch $9.75 (Out-of-stock)

A perfectly serviceable love song backed with a rough-and-ready late-night lament. Lyric sheet. Edition of 500.


Excerpts (& Half-Speeds)

(Kye - KYE16) LP $15.50 (Out-of-stock)

Throughout his fifteen years of service as foot-soldier of garage rock, Melchior has willingly tested the flexibility of an otherwise stagnant genre. Here he glues together fractured sketches, riffs, and run-throughs; what emerges is something akin to Another Green World for the Fuck Off generation. With insert. Edition of 450. TEDIUM HOUSE BEST OF 2012


Home Of The Blues

(Kye - KYE41) LP $16.50 (Out-of-stock)

The hardest-working troub in Fairlawn destabilizes his natural songwriting process and tests the durability of the stressed blues idiom. A sincere and multi-faceted presentation of damage and survival as sound. With 18 x 24 poster. Edition of 400.


Exotic Exit

(Kye - KYE20) LP $16.50 (Out-of-stock)

Three compositions, developed between 2010 and 2012 in both live performance and home studio settings, that lace field recordings from Austin and New York City with viola, violin, cello, dulcetina and glockenspiel. Rossetto’s densely structured sound beds smudge the line between Ferrari-esque audio travelogues and the hallucinatory processing of prime Asmus Tietchens. Edition of 400.



(Kye - KYE22) Used LP $12.00 (Out-of-stock)

The Australian duo’s previous work, Palisades (Sabbatical, 2009) and Paper Fault Line (Bocian, 2011), showcases a gestural and timbrally rich music, bristling with detail and sharp edits. Manhunter stands in stark contrast — an ebbing two-part suite for waning grayscale electronics, dehumanized drum machine, amorphous vocal fragments, and sundry devices, woven together in a fabric of despair. The exquisite bleakness of Manhunter ties it to La Mutazione, Abandoned Cities, Theme From Hunger, and other great downer classics of yore. Edition of 400.
