Corticem – Planetarium CD
Corticem are an experimental rock trio based in Krakow, Poland formed by former members of Sawak. After losing their rehearsal/recording space, the trio quickly took action and recorded sessions to tape using whatever they could hastily pack up around them: a theremin-like feedback loop from a cigarette pack-sized amp held up to the guitar pickup, multi-tracked bowed cymbals, a single mic on a drum kit running through a broken amp, reversed drums, the walls, anything. The resulting work is a modern kosmische classic that sounds as if it were from another planet.

Stringmodulator – Manifesto CD
Stringmodulator is the brain-child of German musicians Jan Quednau (bass) and Fabian Chmielewski (guitar). Their shared love of electronica, krautrock and jazz is the basis for their experimental music on 10 strings. All sounds are made by guitar and bass. The title of their new album “Manifesto: Noises made by Guitar and Bass” says it all: all sounds are made by these two instruments (and effect pedals). The music was composed spontaneously and recorded on a two-track machine without subsequent overdubs. By this means Jan and Fabian could capture the inspiration and the energy of the here and now.SKU: SBCA008
Greg Nieuwsma – In C: Flea Market CD
Flea markets are magical places. Places where you can watch inanimate reincarnation in action. Objects deemed as useless – discarded, on their way to landfills or incinerators – are given an opportunity to start anew. Terry Riley’s “In C” is a magical piece of music. It is a piece of music with no single definitive version – on the contrary, the rich variety of interpretations echo the smorgasbord of wares on display at the flea market. It is our hope that this broken-down, wabi-sabi laden take on “In C” will be seen as a worthwhile addition to the collection of versions of Terry Riley’s wonderful composition; and that someone may come across it and pick it up with the same curiosity with which they would pick up an exotic trinket at a flea market, examine it closely and, thinking they have found a treasure, say to themselves “Yes!”SKU: SBCA090
