Menhir – Sound Track CD
Sound Track, part of Menhir’s Desert Series is inspired by the Sahara desert and the saharaui refugee camps. It is the soundtrack of the documentary “My first life”, by the Mexican filmmaker Carlos Hernández. The film describes the birth and first days of a child in the camps. The music is composed with analog synths, voices, and electric guitars, mixed with medieval cellos and sandstorms, in 6 music pieces of ritual ambient. Recorded live in the studio, it’s music conceived to overflow the inside-out. A song that is a message, dream wrapped. The changeless time, pulling us as sandstorms. The possible sun and light.

Draaier – The Town That Was Murdered CD
The Town That Was Murdered is Draaier’s love/hate letter to their home town of Jarrow, an a homage to the book written by Red Ellen Wilkinson. Forgotten at best, actively dismantled at worst, Jarrow is a signifier of the treatment of Northern industrial towns. Pitch black in places but not without glimmers of hope, there is a violence and frustration that runs underneath the surface, a resentment at being ostracised.SKU: SBCA075
Hanrath & Way – Prismatic Illusions CD
Wilfried Hanrath is a German multi-genre multi-instrumentalist, Gordon Way has been a sound and visual artist in Canada for more than 40 years. Teamed up by mutual friend Neal D. Retke for this project, they soon found their way to work together. Wilfried selected 7 of his compositions he had performed and recorded over the past three years from 2018 – 21 he thought suitable for a collaboration and sent them to Gordon with the permission to treat them just like he wanted. The result is an amazing blend of structures and textures woven into Wilfried´s tracks, ranging from the psychotic ranting of the first track, through dreamlike ambient to free jazz.SKU: SBCA089
Goodparley – Canvas CD
Using a number of lilting, jazz-inflected chord progressions sampled on acoustic guitar by long-term collaborate Il Bradipo as a canvas, this is the most clearly structured Goodparley record to date. Collecting more expressive improvised guitar melodies and juxtaposing them with long-form drone pieces, this record contains wistfulness, nostalgia and moments of wonder. A more colourful palette than previous records, Canvas draws on the separate whimsical styles of F.S. Blumm and the lo-fi community, with sporadic bursts of experimental delay work explored on previous Goodparley releases. The guitar pieces here present a fractured memory space, whilst the ambients slip into the realm of dreams. Sometimes the two intersect and bridge, sometimes they stand apart, together. This is, of course, only one reading of the music within. This record is a canvas, not quite blank, presented to you with space for whatever you bring to it.SKU: SBCA066
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.SKU: SBCA063
