Cousins Of Reggae / Mouthus

(Olde English Spelling Bee) Used Split LP $5.00

“A side each of fertile noise-rot from 2005. Cousins’ five-track suite about the Hudson Bay sets sail with hyperactive stompers and narcoleptic stumblers intent on capsizing all vessels in their path before coming under attack by a squadron of pissed off jet-skiers. On the flip, two massive Mouthus jams capture a day spent peaking on mescaline at the Daytona 500.” Edition of 500 with handpainted covers and full-color inserts.


Rain in Skull

(Olde English Spelling Bee - OESB24) LP $12.00 (Out-of-stock)

Fragments of disjointed folk melodies move across a plain of wheezing chords, tape hiss, children's voices, ambient washes, amp hum, electronic glitch and bits of buzz in general. The contrast between this Australian freakazoid’s downcast guitar playing and the physical claustrophobia-inducing weight of sound is both perplexing and intriguing. Color spray-mounted jacket. Edition of 200.



(Olde English Spelling Bee - OESB38) LP $17.00

Debut album by sci-fi oriented, vintage synth duo who began recording after being commissioned to make soundtracks for flotation tanks at a new age center in Texas. Now based in Los Angeles, they perform private rooftop concerts overlooking training grounds for the L.A.P.D. riot squads, where scrambling helicopters and practice gun battles complement the sinister, dystopian vibe of their compositions. Silkscreened jackets. Edition of 400.


Night Dolls With Hairspray

(Olde English Spelling Bee) Used LP $10.00 (Out-of-stock)

The sound craved by lunatic love puppets — magical pop radiance that outshines their topiary hairdos, a glam soundtrack spilling out of a 1970s Time Square erotic B-movie theater.


Copper / Silver

(Olde English Spelling Bee) Used 2xLP $8.00

“A psychedelic swirl and roar applied to drone metal (albeit laden with glitchy chirps and roaring fuzz, ambient layerin, slow-moving, dynamic semi-structures, and a focus on low rumbling and semi-intelligible guitar). Fragments of what could charitably be called ‘riffs’ weave in and out of Yellow Swans’ noise tapestry, the long and low fuzzed-out notes meeting bursts of post-rock-isms and even near guitar soloing at one point. The slow, jammy vibe brought in by the Daturas prevents fatigue from rapid wild texture shifts. The tracks are lengthy, but the textures are varied and the progression is smooth.” Paste-on jacket.



(Olde English Spelling Bee) Used LP $10.00

Creating “traces of drone, noise, and African percussion, alongside more traditional pop and rock elements,” notes Pitchfork, Lynch’s “instrumentation is unusual and eclectic, incorporating clarinet, watery guitar lines, shuffling maracas, and delicate drum work. But where bedroom pop tends to be somber and even unsettling at times, Mare is very much at ease with itself. And it sounds very organic. Tracks are experimental in composition but ultimately echo the mood of folk or country — music that feels like it should be played outdoors. For how druggy and narcotized it sounds, it doesn’t come across as sad or tuned-out. A lot of artists use these kinds of woozy textures to enhance a detached viewpoint, but ultimately this is colorful and engaged music.” From 2010
