Steve Roach
Quiet Music 3

American ambient / electronic / new age composer Steve Roach recorded three albums based around synths, flute and electric piano known as Quiet Music between 1983 and 1986. Each album in the series has a different reason for existence and Quiet Music 3 was intended to aid his personal healing rituals. Originally released on cassette in 1986, this is the first time it has appeared on vinyl.

Bruce Haak
The Electric Lucifer

A rare slab of 1970 electronics by Bruce Haak. The Electric Lucifer is heavily-laden with dramatic organ and even more dramatic vocals, plus some cutting-edge Moog synths and electronically-tweaked wildness. This has been unavailable for years, but is now reissued in a limited edition of 1000 copies by Telephone Explosion.

Freak Heat Waves
Zap The Planet

Canadian electronic / post-punk duo Freak Heat Waves present their fourth, and probably their gnarliest and most complex, studio album to date with Zap The Planet. Led by the breathtakingly menacing lead single ‘Dripping Visions’, the whole experience is like the immediate aftermath of a bad, half-remembered hallucination.

Badge Époque Ensemble
Self Help

'Self Help' is the second album from Canadian collective Badge Époque Ensemble. If the single 'Sing A Silent Gospel' (featuring Meg Remy from U.S. Girls) is anything to go by, the album will be an intricately arranged, lightly woven exploration of jazz with nods to funk and lounge music. Steely Dan are, apparently, also an influence... It's an enticing prospect for sure. Out on Telephone Explosion.

Teenanger
Good Time

Teenanger make a brand of post-punk that’s flecked with elements of dub, art-rock and pop. 'Good Time' is an LP which lives up to its name - the Canadian band have upped the hook-level of their choruses and concentrated their sound so that there’s not a single note wasted. It's a winning record which should thrill fans of Tacocat and Mush. Telephone Explosion (Bruce Haack, Laraaji) are the label behind 'Good Time'.

New Fries
Is The Idea Of Us

New Fries are a three-piece out of Toronto who like to get their art rock / no wave ideas down quickly. As a result have made this short, sharp 6 song LP of avant rock with funky bass lines, rudimentary percussion and startling guitar patterns. Somewhere betwixt Pylon and the Tom Tom Club they have a somewhat total disregard for structure and as a result, this is very promising indeed.

Steve Roach
Quiet Music 1

Quiet Music 1 is the first in a series of albums recorded by Steve Roach between 1983 and 1986. The recordings are made up of soft sounds from synth, electric piano, flute and the sounds of nature.

Steve Roach
Quiet Music 2

Quiet Music 2 is the second in a series of albums recorded by American New Age composer Steve Roach. They were recorded between 1983 and 1986 and originally released on cassette in 1986. Quiet Music 2 is inspired by the vast space found in a desert. Musically it follows on from his 1984 album Structures From Silence.

Scott Hardware
Engel

Engel is the second album by Toronto musician Scott Hardware. The album was inspired by the WIm Wenders film Wings of Desire and displays similar ups, downs, darkness and mundanity as the film. His music may appeal to fans of Rufus Wainwright and Jeff Buckley, but unlike those guys he keeps his vocals really low in the mix.

Bruce Haack
Preservation Tapes

The Preservation Tapes by Bruce Haack is a selection of material from the late Canadian electronic music pioneer’s archive. All selections are previously unreleased. The music mainly comes from a time when Haack was recording the proudly Christian label, Sparrow Records. Whilst the lyrics contain unfamiliar religious themes, Haack’s signature vocoder sound is a distinctive feature. Beck and Stereolab have been known to cover Haack’s material in the past. LP on Telephone Explosion.

Melodic Energy Commission
Migration Of The Snails

Melodic Energy Commission were a Canadian space rock collective who featured members of Hawkwind and who played an exploratory blend of hippie-ish psychedelia, guitar freak outs and out there electronics. This rarity has now been re-issued and should appeal to fans of Amon Düüll II, Tangerine Dream, Hawkwind.

Bob Bell
Necropolis

Side one of Bob Bell’s 1978 LP Necropolis is lo-fi scuzzy guitar work-out with motorik rhythms and psychedelic tendencies. It’s reminiscent of ‘90s basement dwellers Cul-De-Sac. Side Two shows a different side to Bob Bell as he takes his saxophone on a free-jazz trip. A beautiful noise. Reissue LP on Telephone Explosion.

Steve Roach
Dreamtime Return

Steve Roach’s 1988 ethno-ambient release Dreamtime Return hits the thirty-year mark and gets the anniversary remaster treatment. Combining appropriated references to Aboriginal Australian folklore and spirituality with his own creativity with electronic instruments, the album is a canonical masterpiece of New Age cheese.
  • Vinyl Double LP (TER049LP)

Bruce Haack
Haackula

This reissue represents the first ever vinyl outing for Haackula, a cult favourite among electro enthusiasts. Bruce Haack originally made this record in 1978, but the music was thought too weird and dark to release. This release has the full original album, plus his 1982 smash tune ‘Party Machine’. On Telephone Explosion, 1000 copies.
