Dan Melchior and P.G. Six
Exhibit A

The ever-questing Dan Melchior teams up with P.G. Six for this new LP. This Norman Records™ type-monkey is unfamiliar with Six’s work, but the fact that he’s in a group called Weeping Bong Band has instantly endeared him to me. His touches of keys, 12-string guitar and (yes) recorder provide a nice foil to Melchior’s acoustic musings on Exhibit A. Think Arab Strap and a wittier version of Jeff Mangum’s solo ditties.

Jon Collin
Water and Rock Music Volume 1

Feeding Tube Records (Blue Sabbath Black Fiji, Thurston Moore) front the fifth LP from slide guitarist Jon Collin. Water And Rock Music, Volume 1 is a more literal title than it may at first appear given that the record actually was recorded on the shores of a Swedish lake. These lovely, woozy takes capture the tranquility of the location expertly. Keep an eye out for the second volume which is set to drop in a few months.

Big Blood
Operate Spaceship Earth Properly

Psych/folk crackpots Big Blood return with Operate Spaceship Earth Properly. Thematically it explores science fact and fiction, and the blurring in between. Imagine the ‘70s acid folk of Comus combined with some heavy riffage, then send that to planet weirdo and you’re part way there. LP on Feeding Tube Records.

Meadow House
This Should Not Be Happening

For those who didn't bother getting our Meadow House LP on Public House then you'll be even more annoyed to know that there's a further LP on Feeding Tube - an actual professional label that know what they are talking about. Admittedly Dan Wilson's eccentric project is a marmite affair but Feeding Tube liked it so much they scratted through 60 unreleased songs to come up with this example of his wild Syd Barrett indebted creativity.

Wet Tuna
Livin’ The Die

Some responsibly-sourced, pole-and-line-caught psych-rock from Wet Tuna here. The Vermont duo’s debut LP sees the pair layering up percussion, organs, vocals and of course some fuzzy fuzzy guitars to create freak-rock jams reminiscent of a lower-budget Moon Duo. Out via Feeding Tube Records (Blue Sabbath Black Fiji, Kurt Vile).

Chris Weisman
Chaos Isn’t Single

Chris Wieseman has a unique minimalist take on the sort of singer songwriting as made by the likes of Todd Rundgren and Nilsson.  It's a stark sound that uses jazz and blues influence within Wieseman's unique sound palette. One day he'll reach paydirt a la Elliott Smith but for the moment let's keep him to ourselves ok?  

The Doozer
Figurines

Fraggle Rock connoisseur The Doozer (real name Anonymous Bearded Cambridgian) is ready with a sixth album on limited press with Feeding Tube Records. Figurines continues a trend of affable, feathery psych-pop with the same sort of twee, quotidian whimsy as Syd Barrett - his voice actually sounds rather like Barrett’s as rendered by Zach Condon.

Chris Weisman
Play Sharp To Me

Chris Weisman is a hero of underground pop, creating beautiful tunes that sound like versions of Beach Boys / Beatles songs made casually and in secret by an artist with no need or desire to temper his weirdnesses with any mainstream concerns. Play Sharp To Me is therefore an extremely lovely and quietly psychedelic pop record, released by Feeding Tube Records.

Gary Wilson & The Blind Dates
Live At CBGB

Really, really strange man Gary Wilson gained his reputation with a series of oddball records that could be perfectly summed up as prog-based lounge music. This release documents a live set at New York's CBGBs  - one of the few venues in which he was welcome to play. The back up by a pact of ex New Yorkers called the Blind Dates gives these songs a harder punkier edge. 

Marcia Bassett & Samara Lubelski
Live NYC

Having teamed up previously, releasing albums on Kye and Golden Lab, Marcia Bassett (Double Leopards, GHQ, Zaika) and Samara Lubelski (Augenmusik, Chelsea Light Moving) work incredibly well together. Experimental drones created using only a guitar and a violin through free improvisation.  Two live recordings, each lasting just under twenty minutes show the versatility of the performers and instruments.

Steve Baczkowski / Chris Corsano / Paul Flaherty
The Dull Blade

Phwoar, a big juicy slab of that good heavyweight free jazz, courtesy of lightning-speed super-drummer Chris Corsano and the twin saxophone attack of Paul Flaherty and Steve Baczkowski. The Dull Blade mixes power-skronk with a surprising amount of swing: nice! Edition of 400 LPs on Feeding Tube Records.

Gary Wilson & Tredici Bacci
Another Lonely Night In Brooklyn

Weirdo hero Gary Wilson took to the stage at Brooklyn's Shea Stadium some little while ago, with Tredici Bacci, the band who play music in the style of vintage Italian film soundtracks backing him. The results, captured on the night and released here as Another Lonely Night In Brooklyn, are particularly great, putting a slightly different spin on some classic Wilson tunes. Out on Feeding Tube Records.

Phil X Milstein & Thurston Moore
Songs We Taught the Lord Volume One

Here’s the tapes of a 1996 live performance by Phil X Milstein (on tape loops and musical saw) and Thurston Moore (on guitar and feedbacks, obviously), supporting none other than John Fahey. Songs We Taught The Lord Volume One has never been released before, but now gets a tasty vinyl pressing limited to 400 copies, thanks to Feeding Tube Records.

Phil X Milstein & Thurston Moore
Songs We Taught the Lord Volume Two

Here’s the tapes of a 1996 live performance by Phil X Milstein (on tape loops and musical saw) and Thurston Moore (on guitar and feedbacks, obviously), supporting none other than John Fahey. Songs We Taught The Lord Volume Two was initially released in 1997 by Chris Corsano, but it’s been in the void since then, plus this vinyl release has remastered audio. On Feeding Tube Records.

Myriam Gendron
Not So Deep As A Well

A beautifully light and airy folk album from Myriam Gendron from Montreal. Her songs on Not So Deep As Well, her debut LP, are based around the poetry of Dorothy Parker and her clear, deep voice delivers the enthralling lyrics with great storytelling ability and when combined with the simple melody of her guitar, Gendron creates an entrancing atmosphere which warmly cocoons around you like a large, colourful quilt.

Elliott Schwartz & Big Blood
Ant Farm

Maine’s Big Blood are deft hands with producing barrierless experimental folk, manipulating field samples, vocals, electronics and anything they get their hands on. Working with composer and pianist Elliot Schwartz on a visual art collective’s exhibition allowed both to run amok to veer back and forth from the edge of free form sound collage, with Pianos and plucked strings meeting processed found sounds.

MX-80 Sound
So Funny

MX-80 hone their avant-rock craft on So Funny, getting it just right, even if “it” sounds a little weird and wrong. So Funny is full of dead-pan smart-ass wit and snarky guitar lines, and you could easily forget that, until now, MX-80 haven’t released an album since 1981… Edition of 500 LPs on Feeding Tube Records.

Mars
Mars Archives Volume Two: 11000 Volts to Tunnel

The second release in this series of Mars Archives explorations / excavations is a bunch of live tracks recorded at Max’s and CBGB circa 1978. 11000 Volts To Tunnel jerks and kicks with the sparky weirdness of Mars’ still-emerging no wave sound. An excellent listen for no wave historians and general fans of strange music alike! On Feeding Tube Records.

Roger Miller
Oh

Roger Miller took some time out from playing in the likes of Mission Of Burma and Destroy All Monsters back in 1988 to record Oh at home. It’s a damn good piece of solo weirdness, with experimental out-sounds and songcraft in equal measure. Out also includes Miller’s remarkable take on the Sun Ra anthem ‘Space Is The Place’. Important reissue from Feeding Tube Records.

Rusalnaia
Rusalnaia

Rusalnaia is the transatlantic collaboration of 2 highly singular folk musicians: Philadelphia, USA’s Gillian Chadwick and England’s Sharron Kraus, who did such good work with Robert Plant a while ago. Their 2007 debut, never before released on vinyl, sounds strange and haunted and misty and beautiful, a highlight of each artist’s catalogue. Reissue on Feeding Tube Records.

The Gary Wilson Trio
Another Galaxy

Gary Wilson got his cult reputation from his electrified avant-songcraft album You Think You Really Know Me, but this release, unearthed from distant 1974 obscurity by Feeding Tube Records, shows that he had jazz talent too. Not just any jazz either, but the kind that floats serenely through outer space… Another Galaxy indeed.

Bruce Russell
Howling and Instability at High Volume Settings

Bruce Russell is of course one of the principal guitar-manglers for New Zealand noise-rock heroes The Dead C! He also produces lesser-known solo work, such as the material gathered on the perfectly-titled Howling and Instability at High Volume Settings, a set of guitar / amp interfacings with a gnarly edge. Edition of 400 vinyl copies on Feeding Tube Records.

Sunburned Hand of The Man
Mind Of A Brother

First ever release by wild-riding collective Sunburned Hand Of The Man, put together back in the late 90’s. For once, the music journalist’s cliche of ‘on-acid’ is appropriate, as the group’s strange improvised sputterings heard here were mostly made under the influence. Mind Of A Brother is reissued on LP with CDr by Feeding Tube Records.

Owen Maercks
Teenage Sex Therapist

Here's a fascinating bit of late '70s outsider pop from Owen Maercks, originally pressed privately in the hope of securing a record deal but was too hard-to-pigeonhole for any labels to bite. It's now been rescued from history's trash heap by Feeding Tube records, who present its scratchy Talking Heads-meets-Modern Lovers-meets-Devo new wave pop on an official release for the first time here.

Joshua Burkett
Gold Cosmos

Gold Cosmos, first released in 2001, represents the moment that Joshua Burkett invited other people into his hushed, intimate weird-folk world. Chris Corsano, Matt Valentine and Ben Chasny (of Six Organs Of Admittance) all contribute, making this a wonderful journey into strange private spaces. 500 copies only, on Feeding Tube.

Miaux
Above The High Rays

Miaux, aka Mia Prce is a Bosnian musician based in Antwerp, Belgium. Above The High Rays is full of her intricate keyboard stylings that are cinematic in nature and have a hint of goth about them. Retro-futuristic synth sounds billow and swirl floating over angular eastern percussion. Feeding Tube signed her up with enthusiastic glee after her performance at the Bruismelk Festival. One-sided 12” featuring etching by Dennis Tyfus.

MV & EE
Alpine Frequency

Alpine Frequency by MV & EE has been likened to a pair of Neil Young’s patched-up jeans, suggesting that, unlike their previous work, it is a collage of sound. A patchwork quilt of sounds brought together to make a sprawling double LP. They mix psychedelia, appalachian folk and aspects of indian music to make their sound. As ever, the Vermont-based duo are joined by a cast of hangers-on that this time include PG Six, Mick Flower and Rafi Bookstaber, to name a few.

Gary Wilson
Music for Piano

Gary Wilson is an experimental musician from Endicott, New York. His best known work is 1977’s You Think You Really Know Me after which he stopped recording and playing live. He started making music again in 2003. His fans are generally attracted to his lyrics which is strange for someone so experimental. Music For Piano, however is mostly instrumental, the closing track, I Love Gary being the exception. It is one of his most avant-garde recordings and was originally recorded around a similar time as You Think You Really Know Me.

Guerilla Toss
Smack the Brick

Guerilla Toss are an exciting bundle of fun, doggedly repetitive, somewhat abrasive, and always propulsive instrumentally. The whole thing is whipped up to terminal velocity by Kassie Carlson’s yelped vocalisations. Smack The Brick is what this band want you to do, and you’d probably do it for them. Thrilling stuff on Feeding Tube Records.

Jack Ruby
Jack Ruby - Volume 2

Jack Ruby were one of the missing links between Fun House era Stooges and the eventual No Wave of the late 70s. They basically sound like what would happen if J.G Ballard started a proto-punk band; electronic noise throughout with dirty rock n' roll. This is the 2nd volume of LP reissues which is the more noisy and experimental side of the band, and it features an appearance by free jazz sax player Pete van Riper and some electric viola reminiscent of some of the Velvet Underground's most dissident work. Limited edition of just 600 copies, it also includes a download card.

Bugs & Rats
Adidas

An obnoxious kebab of unrest from Bugs & Rats. Adidas is a bilge pump of evil hardcore/punk-rock with a seriously demented garage ascetic. Overblown with distorted-to-the-max guitars, muddy vocal squawks and a battery of drums. It's somewhere between Converge and The Sonics. Out on vinyl LP from Feeding Tube Records.

Peter's Window
Last Summer on Earth / Grapey Day

A pop artist who's as renegade as a TV cop who doesn't play by the rules, Pete Nichols' debut record Last Summer On Earth / Grapey Day combines his love of easy, persuasive melodies and subversive, mislabelled sound effects. It's the kind of pop that sounds pretty and ugly at the same time, which is a fair reflection of life, really.

Guerilla Toss
367 Equalizer

Keep it livid. Keep it dense yeah? This is some colossal post-funk-proto-riot-noise-dance from Guerilla Toss. 367 Equalizer is brilliant and rubbish all at once - it's well meta. You can dance to it and not really understand in what way you're dancing to it etc. Out on vinyl LP from Feeding Tube Records. Totally fucking futile.

Bang! Bros.
12/12/12

The Bang! Bros are a free and avant and all things nice jazz duo consisting of Mark Johnson and Adam Foam. They made this record as part of the stupidest and greatest deadline ever, touring twelve cities over twelve hours on... you know... the twelth of December, two thousand twelve. This record is a 12". The duo's free jazz is slightly off the grid, focusing on electronics and drum patterns rather than acoustic instruments.
