Description:

"Issued October 31, 2014 in a bookbound gatefold case and numbered insert via the label or direct from Edward's mail order.  D’Archangel rises. And yawns. Wiping the crust from his eyes, he stumbles from his cryogenic coffin and makes his way to the head, the dull thrum of machinery his only companion. Disturbed by the cracked and worn face staring back at him from above the washbasin, he wonders if something went wrong in stasis. Surely there shouldn’t be stubble! No matter, it’ll be good to be back home. Making his way to the cockpit, he spins the dial on the subspace radio, flipping past caterwauling clockwork orchestras ticking off by-the-numbers covers of White Noise and The Incredible String Band. Oldies again! As he fumbles through his 8-track collection, he catches a glimpse of the vast world hovering in the inky blackness beyond the cockpit window, it’s landscape pitted and scorched. A knot forms in his stomach as he punches in his descent pattern. That’s the trouble with these long business trips - you never know what nightmares await you upon your return."

Edition of 499 numbered copies available Nov. 30 2014 and packaged in a six panel tri fold CD case and insert with artwork by Jesse Peper on French Black board stock with Pantone white ink.  Available from BlRR or direct from the LPDots Mailorder for those outside of USA. "1992 saw The Pink Dots anxious to find a new path. The pain of losing their inspirational guitar player Bob Pistoor to cancer, yet simultaneously enjoying an unexpected taste of success with the album "The Maria Dimension" saw the band plunged into a spin. Resisting the temptation of rushing a new album together and perhaps capitalising on the Maria momentum, The Dots instead decided on a long sojourn in the studio. Guests were invited - namely former LPD violin player Patrick Q. Wright and old friend Steve Stapleton (Nurse With Wound), while the band also gained a new member in Ryan Moore who was a blistering bass player and a fabulous drummer. He was also bursting with new musical ideas. Ryan was the perfect foil for new guitarist Martijn de Kleer who had the unenviable task of stepping into Bob's shoes. Marty also played bass and had his own style of drumming. Sessions sometimes lasted for hours over a period of 9 months. Engineer Vincent Hoedt oversaw the first workouts while Ray Steeg took over in the last months. The result saw 2 albums emerge - "Shadow Weaver" and "Malachai", and tragically the band's record company at the time saw no potential in either album. In retrospect, both of these records occupied a place as left as it gets in so-called Alternative Music, but 20 years on they still have something truly fresh about them. Even so, what about the remains of all of those sessions? Much found it's way on to the double cd "Chemical Playschool 8/9" and "Chemical Playschool 10" yet STILL it felt like the Dots had merely scratched the surface. "Come out From The Shadows" addresses this quandary through the first two volumes. The music presented here is pretty much untouched from the original improvisations in the studio…there has just been an amount of very necessary editing (anyone for 43 minutes of "On the Boards/Swords?"). There is also material from the other Dots album which largely emerged from long studio sessions - "9 Lives To Wonder". Cevin Key flew in from Los Angeles to be the special guest on that one."

'Stitching Time (1st version)' originally appeared on the Beta-lactam Ring Records " A Bell is just a Bowl Until it's Struck" V/A release in 2000. Those responsible: The Silverman: keys, percussion, floorboards, devices; Ryan Moore: bass, drums; Martijn De Kleer: guitars, bass, drums; Niels Van Hoorn: electric and acoustic horns, flute; Edward Ka-Spel: voice, keys; Patrick Q. Wright- violin; Cevin Key: drums (on track 04); Vincent Hoedt: engineering; Ray Steeg: engineering. A big thank you to Chris for rescuing this from the virtual vault and to Alena for unending support. Recorded at Studio Klaverland

Description:

Issued as an edition of 500 copies in a full color book bound gatefold sleeve and insert. The familiar and the uncommon blend together to form the dolorous heart of this release. With contributions from a number of artists, The Sevens Collective brings an album of music that brings to mind everything from Spanish guitar ballads to avant-garde chamber music to dark ambience and improvised space-rock jams. Vocals glide between spoken word and doleful singing, as slow evolution and quick changes are woven around common threads of piano, violin, and guitar, revealing then secreting away drones, electronic ambience, and Tuvan throat singing. At times serene, sad, disturbing, and alien, “A Too Much Divided Heart” brings 8 tracks that blend traditional song structures and instrumentation with experimental concepts and electronic sounds in ways that occasionally evoke memories of lost love and dreams of alternate universes. Echoes of Current 93, Coil, and NWW may be heard within.

Description:

New studio album by Un Festin Sagital as an edition of 150 numbered copies (delay) issued late November 2014. Slowly the great ashen dynamo surges, spilling molten droplets of plasma and cosmic waste, each taking shape, coalescing into stars, planets, entire galaxies, drifting ever further away from the throbbing energy and boiling gasses that lie at the crux of all creation. A massive, disembodied heart that beats out a rhythm so impossibly slow - each pulse separated by an epoch, each quaver a thousand thousand lifetimes, burning and fuming with dark energies. This is power on an unimaginable scale, machinery vast and magnificent, spinning entire realities into existence. This is Kosmodynamos.
