(Small Doses - DOSE112) LP $15.00 (Out-of-stock)

When Strings of Consciousness opened for ASVA in Paris, Philippe Petit and G. Stuart Dahlquist discovered a profound like-mindedness and decided to combine their creative forces. “Root compositions [bathed] in a seething, simmering stew of languidity,” says Gumshoe Grove, this here’s some “quality introspective drone music.” Guest vocalists include Edward Ka-Spel (Legendary Pink Dots), Jarboe (Swans), and Bryan Lewis Saunders.


I Will Always And Forever Hold You In My Heart And Mind

(Small Doses - DOSE87) CD $9.00 (Out-of-stock)

Uncertainty Principle

(Small Doses - DOSE121) 7-inch $7.50 (Out-of-stock)

Yasutoshi Yoshida of Government Alpha joins the brotherhood of the skull flag on Side A for a creeping, crawling track where dark ambient swells underpin Eric Wood’s trademark vocals and noise loops. Side B has the harsher track, with Hiroshi Hasegawa of Astro tearing through synth lines with blasts of noise while leaving room for Wood’s growled and screamed vocals. Olive green vinyl, printed vellum envelopes with an insert.


Live At Babycastles

(Small Doses - DOSE124) CD $12.00 (Out-of-stock)

The very first performance of the Anthony Saunders / Eric Wood iteration of Bastard Noise, whose approach this time is fully electronic, devoid of any vocals or more traditional instrumentation. The near 40-minute performance starts at a slow, quiet boil, and builds progressively into an intense onslaught of oscillators, noise, and ambience. See the trailer here:


Blood Folke

(Small Doses - DOSE107) CD $14.25 (Out-of-stock)

A Personal Hell

(Small Doses - dose47) 7-inch + CDR $10.50 (Out-of-stock)

Rarely is harsh noise done as well as when Crumer's in charge: deliberate, personal, and soul-shredding. Metal drags, scrapes, bangs, and creaks - blowing microphones, speakers, and your mind. Edition of 300 on brown/green vinyl.


Expo 70 / I Am Seamonster

(Small Doses - dose32) split 7-inch $8.00 (Out-of-stock)

Expo 70 offers up an amazing piece of guitar drone while IAS's fuzzed-out drone has an odd sort of pop sensibility bubbling underneath the distortion.

The Eyes Of Erodern Reviema

(Small Doses - DOSE60) CD $11.25 (Out-of-stock)

Alec Bowman and Kingsley Ravenscroft create unique rhythmic, chaotic yet structured works, twisting a variety of sounds into creeped-out electronica, frozen ambience and sporadic wayward beats. The music of this miraculous electric musical ensemble strays into dark territory, inhabiting forgotten grounds; less of a showcase for new technology and more an essential medium for the expression of the human psyche, where the soul is the interface.


Grain Belt

(Small Doses - DOSE75) CD $10.50 (Out-of-stock)

Harsh noise and metal abuse from Minneapolis trio (Wince, Baculum, Willful). Three tracks recorded live. Edition of 200 copies. Co-released by Phage Tapes and White Centipede Noise.


Eureka Tapes (The Complete Recordings)

(Small Doses - DOSE94) Used 2xCD $7.50

Anthony Mangicapra’s music spans styles and moods like a suspension bridge and dissolves into explorations of texture, acoustic phenomena and the psyche.

Artwork by Sineater.



(Small Doses) Used CDR $10.00

Arabic-themed power electronics “indebted to the ’80s tape scene, with a similar sense of not-quite functioning equipment and a structure held together with horse glue and packing tape.” In an envelope with insert. Edition of 66.



(Small Doses - DOSE122) 2xCD $15.75 (Out-of-stock)

Pulling from jazz, ambient noise and drone, this German trio slows it all down and allows dark, downtempo, slow-swinging compositions creep out of the speakers. You could imagine them playing in a dark corner of the Black Lodge in Twin Peaks. All track previously released on cassette: Ausmerzen (Sonic Meditations 2009) and Schwach Gerkerbt (Sonic Meditations 2013). See the trailer here:


True Mask

Drenched Lands

(Small Doses - dose43) CD $13.50 (Out-of-stock)

Since 2005, Locrian have been zeroing in on the right blend of noise, power electronics, dark ambient, and black metal. Drenched Lands unfolds with an almost narrative structure: it slowly descends into a dark abyss, moving torturedly, gradually rediscovering the light, then leaving you where everything began -- completely transformed. The hour-long disc is rounded out by an extended bonus track previously unavailable in any digital format. Black-on-black disc packaged in an arigato pack with a 4-panel insert. Limited edition vinyl released by Bloodlust.



(Small Doses - DOSE89) CD $12.00 (Out-of-stock)

(BloodLust! - B!147) LP $16.50 (Out-of-stock)

André Foisy and Terence Hannum’s well-honed sound takes elements from noise, power-electronics, drone, and black metal, a reflection of the sprawling urban decay that surrounds Chicago. The second studio full-length from Locrian features collaborators Blake Judd (Nachtmystium, Twilight) on guitar, Bruce Lamont (Yakuza) on sax and vocals, Andrew Scherer (Velnias) on drums, and Mark Solotroff (Anatomy of Habit, Bloodyminded) on vocal and synthesizer. The textures run darker and deeper; the vocals -- sometimes three layers deep -- seem to be conjured from the decrepit muck of a failed civilization; the feedback takes on a more pronounced presence; and full-on black metal assaults burst out of tortured drones. With double-sided color insert.


Eternal Absence

(Small Doses) Used 3-inch CD $3.00

Schizophrenic noise from 2008 by Franklin Teagle, Matt Yacoub, Ryan McGill, with moments of power electronics and dark ambient, soaked in feedback from a heart of stone. Edition of 115

Both sides evolve slowly, mangle with sinewy maws of noise, and grip with hands of haunting ambience.


American Gothic

(Small Doses - DOSE92) CD $11.00 (Out-of-stock)

This landmark collaboration by Jenks Miller (Horseback) and Nicholas Szczepanik stretches from lilting, minimal drones to dark, dense, harsh soundscapes. The disc’s closer, “Cranberry Sauce,” was featured on a Wire Tapper comp, but don’t let that turn you off.


Beta Wave Nemisis

(Small Doses - DOSE80) CD $11.25 (Out-of-stock)

On the premiere recording of the monumental collaboration by Daniel Jansson (Deadwood) and Osman Arabi (, Seeker), dark ambient textures blend with industrial soundscapes, and harsh noise floats with minimal drone and power electronics vocalizations. One movement flows well into the next, making for an intense and epic debut recording. Art and design by Seldon Hunt.


There I Saw The Grey Wolf Gaping

(Small Doses - DOSE115) CD $11.00 (Out-of-stock)

Shorter pieces this time out, inspired by diverse genres: kosmische / krautrock, musique concrète, early industrial, shoegaze, ambient / drone, and avant-garde composition.

(Small Doses - DOSE128) CD $12.75 (Out-of-stock)

(Small Doses - DOSE128) LP $17.25 (Out-of-stock)

Wyrding initially melded the neo-folk leanings of Kinit Her into a unique take on funeral doom metal. Now a five-piece band, they’ve become expansive and epic, riddling the trip with sadness, darkness, and catharsis. “Troy Schafer’s warm baritone voice [soars] above [the smooth lugubre of] fellow bandmates Brian Steele, Kyle Roessler, Bret Hartl and Jerry McDougal,” observes Invisible Oranges’ Jon Rosenthal. “Gone are the overt folk influences…. [Their sound is now] akin to Benedictine monks performing funeral rites with modern electric instrumentation. Unlike … more conservative funeral doom…, Wyrding seeks out the dramatic not only in minimal execution, but minimal sound. They are quiet, unassuming, [yet] portray immensity.” Red vinyl with black swirl. CD contains two tracks previously released on the Agony In Being cassette (Shifting Sands Congregation 2015).
