Now Shipping: Our Fall Releases (Part 1) October 02 2015
Shipping this week, an overlooked minimalist masterpiece and a trio of outsider pop essentials.
Ellen Fullman's debut LP is the first document of her self-made instrument. The Long String Instrument conjures an enchanting drone and dissolves into organ-like overtones and otherworldly textures. This first-time reissue is recommended for fans of Pauline Oliveros, Charlemagne Palestine and Harry Bertoia.
L. Voag recorded his 1979 solo debut during the waning days of his time in The Homosexuals. As Steven Stapleton from Nurse With Wound states perfectly, The Way Out is "a classic of bric-a-brac nonconformity." This first-time vinyl reissue is recommended for fans of Desperate Bicycles, This Heat and Mark Perry.
Milk From Cheltenham released their sole album on famed UK DIY imprint It's War Boys in 1983. Drawing from basement tapes and studio sessions, A Triptych Of Poisoners runs the gamut from jerky post-punk to cut-up collage. This first-time vinyl reissue is recommended for fans of Swell Maps, The Faust Tapes, and LAFMS.
Departmentstore Santas' only release is an elusive '80s cult classic. Originally pressed in just 500 copies, At The Medieval Castle Nineteen 100-Year Lifetimes Since features quirky sing-alongs, wide-eyed lyrics and echoey instrumentals. This first-time reissue is recommended for fans of Television Personalities, Guided By Voices and Cleaners From Venus.
