Ultra Eczema Vinyl, CD & tapes from this label at Norman Records
Oren Ambarchi, Crys Cole, Leif Elggren
This unholy alliance between Oren Ambarchi (AUS), Crys Cole (CAN) and Leif Elggren (SWE) took place at a residency in Stockholm’s EMS Studios in 2016. The story goes that the harsh winds blew off the windows, prompting the trio to take desperate measures to stay warm and record. Sounds more like a contact mic passing through a cow’s intestines to me. It’s a good sound.

Belgian imprint Ultra Eczema release this weird-ass record by Icelandic group Stilluppsteypa. Beach Jolanda is more like a late-night radio mix than a regular LP. Divided into sides of largely wordless fare, the music is constantly shifting and mutating. One minute we’re in church listening to organs reverberate around the roof, the next we’re sipping cocktails at the beach. A feeling of valium-slow detachment yokes the thing into a cohesive whole. Oddly beguiling stuff.
Dan Melchior & Sigtryggur Berg Sigmarsson
Dan Melchior, the extra-weird garage rock dude with a taste for experimentalism, meets his match in Sigtryggur Berg Sigmarsson, for this fresh team-up on Dennis Tyfus’ Ultra Eczema imprint. Dark Arc is two vinyl sides of abstract wooze, droning shudder, and tape-drenched organs and voices. Vinyl release.
