10 to the Power of 9

Legendary Pink Dots are back with a new great concept album.

This is first Volume of a complex story about conspiracy, magic, and spirituality. Minimal synths, guitars, syncopated rhythms that are making weird, psychedelic and transcendental noises which are of course accompanied by the distinctive voice of Ka-Spel. Lying on your sofa, pumping up the volume and just dream away on their ethereal sounds.

10 to the Power of 9 is a dark and exceptional trip into their warped and bizarre musical psyche. For sure one of the best Concept album of the Band.

Limited Marble Pink Vinyl (499 copies).

Bruta Non Calculant

After the wonderful “World In A Tear” LP released earlier this year on Cititrax/Minimal Wave, Treue um Treue are happy and proud to present the second album by BRUTA NON CALCULANT, thus resuming their collaboration with the French duo of Alaxis Andreas G. (once known as Le Syndicat Electronique and mastermind of Invasion Planete) and his blood brother V-Y (Age, Swesor Bhrater, De Frontanel).

From IOSOPHIS to SHINY BLACK MATER, many eclectic projects have charmed and surprised us since Alaxis Andreas G. made his discreet reappearance on the musical scene. But none has had the fullness, maturity and deeply unique musical voice of BRUTA NON CALCULANT, which appears as a sublimation of all that has come before, like the completion of an alchemical Great Work. Leaving behind the folk elements present in World In A Tear, this new album blends with instinctive ease hypnotic third wave rhythm box beats, big muff fuzz and esoteric lyrics into a masterpiece which is both lyrical and intensely ritual, drenched in this aura of mystery characteristic of the brothers’ recent works. Thematically inspired by the myth of the wolf-woman, La Que Sabe (“the one who knows”) is an album about initiatory death, the passage through the wolf’s cave leading up to spiritual rebirth and Liberation. It proves Alaxis Andreas G. to be one of the few contemporary artists capable of constant renewal, each new step on the musical path as thrilling as ever.

LP – black vinyl – limited edition of +/- 300 copies. Comes with a superb artwork by Sophie Lécuyer.

Endphase

15 years after its initial ultra-limited CDR release, ENDPHASE’s first and only album finally goes analogue! >I< was composed and recorded between 1996 and 2001 by Marc Patrick Schaffer, later to become the founder of ANNA LOGUE RECORDS and one half of SOLITUDE FX, using an array of synthesizers such as the Kawai K1, Korg Poly-61 and Yamaha PSR-6300. Presented here in its extended 2001 version, it gathers no less than 20 glorious neo-romantic tracks, between dreamy instrumentals and catchy electro songs, featuring guest vocals by Carmel Smith and Orpheo Weidelt-Baur (SFX). Infused with the longing and despair of the late 90s, ENDPHASE remains a true milestone of the German minimal wave revival, an intimate and introspective testimony to the beginning of an era.

C72 professionally duplicated audio cassette – transparent green shell – in clear case + printed J-card – lim. ed. of 100 hand-numbered copies.

Giant / Axis

La Fete Triste is sometimes instrumental, sometimes with vocals. Taking main influences from the french new/cold wave and the early british dreampop sound.

Like the Kafka story that inspired their name, Brooklyn post-punk/dream pop band The Harrow walk a fine line between the alluring and the surreal. Driving, club-centric electronics nestle against lush organic instrumentation, woven with vivid songcraft. The result is a hauntingly familiar sound that is never complacent in scope.

Limited edition of 300 handnumbered copies, white vinyl, comes with download code.
