Loren Connors
The Departing Of A Dream Vol. V

Releases of the music of Loren Connors are always welcome, and they are especially so when they continue a remarkable suite of records intended as a tribute of sorts to Miles Davis. The Departing Of A Dream Vol. V is a typical example of Connors’ near-spiritual craft with the electric guitar: beautiful. 10” record, released in a strictly limited edition of 500 copies by Family Vineyard.

Jim Sauter & Kid Millions
Safe & Sane

Safe & Sane, the third joint album from saxophonist Jim Sauter and drummer Kid Millions, sees the talented duo eschew the tight, clipped structures of their previous efforts and instead opt for fiery, elongated jams, with billowing sheets of sound that extend over more than one side of vinyl at a time. 

Loren Connors
Angels That Fall

Yet more guitar murmurations reissued by the blues enigma Loren Connors. At this point he's risen to prominence in experimental scenes through a series of lovely re-evaluations, and Angels That Fall is another. Recorded as recently as 2016, it offers the same interactions of silence and resonance.

Loren Connors
Blues The 'Dark Paintings' of Mark Rothko

Loren Connors is one of those avant-garde composers’ whose records sell out quickly, and definitively. When their albums make a return, they are no longer avant-garde, but canon. So it should be with Blues the ‘Dark Paintings’ of Mark Rothko, inspired by Rothko, and a timepiece in its own right. 800 copies on 160 gram vinyl.

Tashi Dorji & Tyler Damon
Leave No Trace (Live In St. Louis)

Two people, one with guitar and one with a drum kit. It’s a set-up ripe with potential for instant-composition from magic, and Tashi Dorji and Tyler Damon take their starting place and really run with it. Leave No Trace, recorded live in front of an audience in St. Louis, is a fierce, tight, inventive duet that’ll leave you mind-boggled. LP on Family Vineyard.

Robert Crotty & Loren Connors
Robert Crotty With Me: Loren's Collection (1979-1987)

Around the same time Connors laid down his first primal solo guitar albums at his home in Daggett Street, New Haven, he recorded these duos with visiting local bluesman, Robert Crotty. Connors revered the elder guitarist, and with his trademark vocal moan audible beneath Crotty’s more sonorous singing, there’s a sense of a teacher / apprentice relationship between the two. This collection of standards and improvisations is available as a double CD, or an LP with a bonus CD. 

Hisato Higuchi
She

Reissue of Japanese guitarist Hisato Higuchi’s debut EP She, expanded with two never released before tracks from his original recording sessions and made available on vinyl for the first time. Incredible delicate and nuanced guitar strumming awash with ethereal electronic fuzzes and glitches akin to Machinefabriek and outer-body vocal groans.

The Last Four Digits
Don't Move (1980-1982)

The Last Four Digits were a band that only existed for a few years in the early 80’s, but still managed to have two thoroughly different line-ups in that time. Don’t Move (1980-1982) anthologises both editions of this key underground new wave group with a great selection of tracks. The LP version comes with a CD containing their whole 1982 CBGB live performance too! On Family Vineyard.

Tom Carter & Loren Connors
Untitled

The twin crown princes of American guitar join forces for what appears to be the first time ever! Charalambides man Tom Carter is a little more psychadelic, and Norman favourite Loren Connors is a little more bluesy, but both are masters of gorgeous in-depth improvisation, and they twirl together into perfection on this Untitled LP. Edition of 500 on Family Vineyard.

Loren Connors
The Departing of a Dream, Vol. VI

The vastly talented Loren Connors recently started up his Departing of a Dream series on Family Vineyard: here is Volume VI. This is Connors in an especially ethereal mood, with his guitar seemingly morphing into something not of this world. 10” vinyl on Family Vineyard, firmly limited to just 500 copies.

Dow Jones and The Industrials
Can't Stand The Midwest 1979-1981

Dow Jones and The Industrials, who have one of the best band names I’ve seen in ages, were a US art-punk outfit from the turn of the 80’s, who couldn’t stand living in the very un-art-punk Midwest. Can’t Stand The Midwest contains a stack of their simple-but-weird tracks, some of which have never been released and others of which have been functionally unavailable ever since the original records sold out. And the vinyl edition has a DVD of a live show too! On Family Vineyard.

Akira Sakata & Jim O'Rourke With Chikamorachi & Merzbow
Flying Basket

Saxophonist Akira Sakata presents a furious five-way assault jam in conjunction with guitarist Jim O'Rourke and Chikamorachi (aka drummer Chris Corsano and double bassist/percussionist Darin Gray) with the added bonus of analogue electronics courtesy of Japanese overlord Masami Akita aka Merzbow.

Loren Connors
Live In New York

The US avant guitarist Loren Connors further consolidates his legendary status with a self-explanatory live outing. As usual, the blues hovers spectrally over proceedings while the guitarist's inventive and diverse technique recalls fellow masters including Robert Johnson, Ry Cooder and Keiji Haino to Robert Fripp, Bill Frisell and John McLaughlin.
