*TJ&J-side bit heroic and at times rhythmic sound snippets of improvising dual laptops. occasional small sounds. bravely almost touching techno at points.
entertaining, eduvacational and interesting 29 minutes. the fifteen minutes on LS-side are also made up from quite tiny sounds, theres just more of them alike.
illusion of density slowly building and then suddenly almost totally collapsing. much like your life. there is also an reindeer on the cover.

ALTAAT: s/t (IKASUS-038)
*pretty, mellow ambient with atleast synth and electric guitar from turku. kind of basic and very good.
4e + postages

*here are three tracks of digital, crepuscular and slightly gallant neofolk with sounds that sound like theres
a moderately conservative preset configurations kept on keyboards and other machines. this might do well
as a soundtrack for a fantasy themed computer game? have to say that at this point in time i really have no
way of knowing if this is any good or not. experts mention its promising. its also prob quite rare since there
are only 33 copies made.

ANOTHER WAY: Az Idő Rövid Története (POSTHUMAN PROD 003)

just barely over one minute. i dont know what to say.

*C40, on CCH side "recollections of boreal forest" compiled from 10 years worth of recordings on different devices.
on MATOMERI side three songs that showcase multiple faces of free-genre/genre/genre.
i suppose this is the 2nd edition? so that means its SO good they had to make extra copies!

CLAUS POULSEN: electric lobby (MATCHING HEAD 192)
*turntable, guitar, synthesizer, keyboards, dictaphone, e-bow & field recs recorded during 2012-2013 in copenhagen, hamburg and edinburgh. this is really, really exceptionally great tape.

*quite minimal/simple and bit experimental electronic beats and occasional weird, atmospheric
female vocals of mainly "oohs" and "aahs". there might be also some lyrical content here and there but
really its impossible to say for sure. long tracks of not much happening. quite a lot of tape hiss, some cable
malfunctions and such. really good (recycled) tape!

COURTIS / SOVIET SEX MACHINES: histolisis / razkolnikoff!! (MONOPOLKA60 / PMM)
*post-materialization records re-issue of sorts of a monopolka release from 2005. covers are original,
tapes dubbed about 10+ years after the actual release date. C side starts as a nice, simple, crunchy
drone that develops into a quite icy, delayed clanging and humm and then back just before suddenly
tapering off to a glorious yet maybe bit demented church organ freak out and then for the end a short
while onto some AM radio tuning excercise and silent, looped whining electronics. great track.
SSM side is a live recording from someplace called Razkolnikoff. its lo-fi, noisy, shouty and very,
very confusing.

D.D. DOBSON: the classic of purity (DX1005)

sounds, odd, creeping atmospheres etc etc from USA 85.
*7e + postages

D.D. DOBSON: uncreated past (DX1013)
*material from year 1998, released 2015. many tiny, very murky, blurred electronic and acoustic experimental pieces and some
hard to explain snippets of totally rotten dialogue. mysteries of history revealed? never! very much recommended.

THE DEVIL MAN compilation tape (LTJ-116)
*sound siphoned from random instagram pictures and put onto song titles randomnly taken from book called "the devil man" by E. Wallace.
participants in this winning formulae were: Transuranic Heavy Elements, Hologram Heart, Lryeas, Casual Drinker, Psyke Urtsa, Grey Park,
Mutsis, Uton, Rene Kita, Lörsson, S. Kelly, Przewalski's Horses, Suonuotio, Lotus TAJ, Bear Heaven, Olli Aarni and Puiset Heilat.
the Lörsson track is genius. this tape is well worth the 5e for that track alone. go listen from the 267 lattajjaa bandcamp if you dont comprehend.
C70, limited to 60.

*grindcore from hungary. same tracks on both side yet different mix and master on A and B. as a professional on grindcore
sound id say the side B sounds better. also needs to be mentioned that the bands logo is such a cryptic one it clearly says
CAN-RODXT on the cover. thats a definite plus. tape is spraypainted black. thats a definite minus.

ERIK ALALOOGA: metronomic nightmare (SM03)
*self-built kinetic instruments operated by E.A. in Estonia. one 24 min track. this actually sounds a lot like
a bunch of (old) machines playing themselves. steam not cyber. circular & looped. minor dubby effects. some
robotic underwater talking. also somehow bit spidery. it loses something after the 16min mark when the machines
start to play some sort of beat. gets too machine-like i suppose.

GNOM I SNEGOVIK: udivitelniy sad raznoobraznoi musiki (MACRURUS-??)
*this long silver spraypainted + decorated with dingly bright coloured tiny balls tape feels like a russian take on
older JOMF (or NNCK, Sunburned hand of the man, Avarus, even VCO and what had/have you). its free, sketchy, freaky
odd, crude and at times surprisingly moody & atmospheric. highlights include quite cheesy saxophone solo amidst
the confused shouting in russia. so, lets see.. hmm. with groups like this & Polypus Acephalous, Vyazkiy Sharab, Novoe
Tsarstvo, Post-Materialists
.. yes sir its clear - celebrate the forming of the new weird CCCP! very good!

JORGE VICARIO: broken music (JZK030)
*C40 tape that sounds at times like a skipping cd-player with a bit of soul. could be filed under minimal easy-listening
glitch, maybe? dont know if on purpose or not but anyway well fitting for this release, the liner notes are also written
in very broken english. nice listen.

LÖRSSON: lepakkomies helsinki 23.2.2013 (PAS-2)
*quite best, not metal.

LEITMOTIV LIMBO: limbo / wind swept (SM01)
*now, this tape from australia at times resembles so much cabaret voltaires attic tapes that its impossible to not to mention!
stark, minimal,lo-fi, very strange and often just downright creepy soundscapes/songs made mainly with saxophone (or some
suchlike wind instrument[s]), crude electronics, occasional beaten metal junk and blurred vocals. covers look like theyve been
somehow programmed with VCR on a piece of tapestry and the tapes been spraypainted with.. something.

*really great, noisy and spacey collaboration C40. fun facts of life; pink twins was ridiculously good at year
2016 flow festival. as was umpio at oranssi in year 2015 at some random event i dont remember anymore.
there is a gap of about 200m and roughly a year there. coincidence? i dont think so.

UTON: live in death (BREAD AND ANIMALS)

"hunger" on it? i dont but i have to say it feels somewhat soothing to know that now i can if i have to.
it says on the postcard that it should be played on 45rpm but im pretty positive thats a typo.. and the actual song is a great piece of cool
outsider lo-fi rock n roll!

LO-FI WOMAN: gorod piratov LP (PA025 / PMM??)
*this is pretty obscure affair of bit demented, somewhat confused and very lo-fi & free noisy impro rock with totally incomprehensible
vocals from Perth, RUS. at points you can maybe even sense a minor whiff of VHK. there is also a cover of Sonic Youth song but i
suppose there is nothing you can do about that. most likely 100 records pressed, this here is edition of hmm special handmade
screenprinted cover by S. Efremov..

POST-MATERIALISTS: moist rita & glyptique 7" (PMM101)

airy and pretty minimal weirdly smoky little affair of a song with very muffled vocals in what i suppose is russia.
"glyptique" shorter instrumental piece with a nice saxophone motif with confused tiny guitar(?) noise. on side B
artwork and letters on red. silk screened covers, 8 page booklet informing you whats what + yellow voyerism
themed postcard of sorts. solid.
6e + postages

POST-MATERIALISTS / GARGAMELEK: my jazz - my vibes 7" (PM-002 / 201666)
*REALLY great split 7" from year 2016. first track on side PM sounds like odd and
perplexingly slow, pounding drums / circus-midi take on jazz of sorts. its quite horrible actually. it states on the covers
for this side: "45 or 33 rpm". so maybe with 45 the track makes more sense? i dont know..
luckily the second PM track, "space smile", is a really wonderful tiny collage of mariachi trumpet, some
underwater singing, loop of something from 50s, an guitar and maybe something else. excelent!
on side G one(?) long track of more traditional free jazz sound with instrumentation of alt sax,
percussion, paintings. and its exceptionally good too! raw sax and tiny busy percussions
somewhere underneath the wailing. really great. if i decipher the covers right the players on this side
are called Gargamelek, Maoist mojo and New York 1975. nice.

Синтоцветие 2 7" (BOOK26)
*russian 7" comp. from year 2015. title of this compilation is in cyrillic alphabet so its probably a total mess up there.
computer translator says its most likely called Sintotsvetie 2 or something along such lines. also its not a normal 7"
or even a flexi 7" but a polycarbonate lathe 7". the quality of sound as high fi as on usual flexis yet the actual object is
much thicker. so its best of both worlds what we have here! 9 acts and 9 short tracks (from 1min to 2min) of minimal electro /
synth pop, muffled noise, russian rap, a short study of whining analogue, some concrete sound works and what else. its varied,
surprisingly minimal & subdued and yes, very very odd. comes with a crude, green sticker.

TAMING POWER: Selected Works 1992-98 10" (EMR-005)
