Andre Ethier
Croak In The Weeds

The second in another planned trilogy of three solo albums from former Deadly Snakes frontman André Ethier, Croak In The Weeds could succeed where the Canadian’s other projects previously seized up. Following 2017’s Under Grape Leaves and produced with Sandro Perri, the new collection ought to be another indie-folk triumph.

Badge Époque Ensemble
Badge Époque Ensemble

There are supergroups and there are supergroups, but the combined musical experience of Toronto-based ensemble Badge Époque Ensemble would take an entire page of its own - six of them starred as Meg Remy’s U.S. Girls live band last year. Featuring woodwind alongside traditional band instrumentation, the collective’s self-titled debut ought to be a great one!

Chandra
Transportation EPs

Not to be cynical, but I suppose one of the perks of being the child of a world famous conceptual artist is a show at CBGB when you're 12. Despite that, Chandra's 1980 Transportation EP still sounds pretty sharp, lying within the perfect New York storm of post-punk/no-wave/disco. This release also comes with a second EP that was never released, recorded in 1983.

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.

Charles Ditto
In Human Terms

In Human Tems is the 1988 debut album of Charles Ditto, a fellow with a fine collection of midi-synths and the melodic and experimental instincts to put them to great use. The sounds (lots of Rolands) are distinctly of their time, but that doesn’t stand in the way of one's enjoyment of the odd-pop structures that Ditto puts them into. Reissued by Telephone Explosion.

Fist Of Facts
Fugitive Vesco

Fist Of Facts is the project Liquid Liquid singer, Salvatore Principato, started following the demise of the New York no-wavers in 1984. He started recording Fugitive Vesco in a rented studio with Ken ‘man’ Cladiera. Liquid Liquid drummer, Scott Hartley, Mark Cunningham from Mars, Felice Rosser and a whole bunch of other people contributed to the album. The project expanded on the groove, politics and exploratory dub furrow that was ploughed in Liquid Liquid. LP+7” set 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.

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.

Ty Segall / Black Time
Split

Originally released in 2009, ‘Split’ LP by Ty Segall (Fuzz, Sic Alps) and UK trash garage rock band Black Time is often referenced as being one of Ty Segall’s best early records. The juxtaposition of Segall’s Californian, reverb heavy groves and the chaotic, disorienting ruckus that is Black Times’ contribution makes for a weird but totally satisfying listening experience.

New Fries
More

New Fries are such a lively-sounding band that you feel like you must be missing something by not getting the visual aspect: these songs are so bursting at the seams with *stuff*, they must be sprouting out colours or something. Anyway, for now we must settle for the kaleidoscopic sound of New Fries: 10 inches worth on their new Telephone Explosion release.

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.

Visitors
Poets End

The materials gathered on Poets End were all originally recorded thanks to the benevolence of John Peel between 1979 and 1981, Peel doing his usual excellent job of documenting crucial slices of the underground. Visitors were an excellent post-punk gang after all. 4 of these recordings have never been released before, and the rest aren't easy to find. 1000 copies.

Teenanger
E P L P

Teenager, the fresh new sound of Toronto. With one foot in the garage and one in the, er, post-punk, Teenager have guitars and sneer in great amounts. Is E P L P an EP or an LP? Who can say!?! (it’s about 25 minutes long, so it’s an EP basically). The vinyl is released by the excellently named label Telephone Explosion.

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.

Bruce Haack
Electric Lucifer : Song Book II

The sequel to his now-revered 1970 LP Electric Lucifer, Electric Lucifer: Song Book II first arrived in 1979 but hasn't been very available on western shores since then. Telephone Explosion, a label from Haack's native land, is rectifying that dilemma, having announced a nice new pressing of that Electric Lucifer: Song Book II. The record treads similar sonic ground to its predecessor, but Haack had clearly processed the music of the '70s when he made it, filling this sequel with some deep funk, prog, sound collage, and jazz fusion tidbits.
