X-Bax – Dronetime CD
Dronetime (2007), was X-Bax’s second album and follow-up to In Search of The Brown Note (2004). Longer and dronier than its predecessor, it pointed the path forward. X-Bax continues to a vehicle for Phil Dole’s experimental musing when not playing with other groups such as Chord, Grand Kali Ma, Dole & Megalos, and Dots.

Diorama – The Secret Vault of Lost Curiosities CD
A bittersweet collection of sounds and words from Lisa Eye and electronic artist/producer iGod. Mostly recorded in the UK (an apartment in London and a hotel in Brighton) with additional vocal takes done at Vibe Studio in Basel, Switzerland in 2008 & 2009. A few electronic dubs and the first mixes were done in Chicago in 2009, followed by the majority mixes being finished in Los Angeles in 2011. A few unmixed stragglers were discovered in 2015, when the original album was tweaked, sequenced and released. This re-issue coincided with the release of a limited double LP version.SKU: SP044
Deviant & The Clones – Futura Bold CD
Punky, experimental noise rock from mid-80s Vancouver, Canada. Some of the same touchstones as Big Black, but very lo-fi cassette-only releases back in the day. This is the second reissue of what is regarded as the most important of the Deviant & the Clones DIY releases.SKU: VD008
Sharkula – Dirty Caviar CD
Sharkula is a legendary emcee and hip-hop artist from the streets of Chicago with a long history whose recent credits include Take Caution On The Beach with Mukqs and a number of collaborations with Kool Keith. This album was recorded with electronic musician and producer iGod in 2005 and was considered lost for nearly a decade until its original release in 2015 as a 10″ mini-album and CD with bonus tracks. This re-issue of the CD version is a key document in Sharkula’s vast and diverse body of work.SKU: VD028
Liam Warfield – Little Savage CD
Liam Warfield (sometimes known as Liam Idiot) is a writer and sometimes punk-inspired, hobo lo-fi folk rock musician. While he had done some conceptual albums before Little Savage (such as Joshua Moses’ Din and Danger), this disc was also a complete narrative, telling a story loosely based on the Wild Boy of Aveyron while stretching out musically from his earlier guitar-in-hand-while-riding-the-rails-between-campfires aesthetic.SKU: VD032
Long Beach Huntington – Ken’s #2, Anti-Tech Police & Other Delights CD
Ken “Long Beach” Huntington is a long time fixture of the local Long Beach, California independent music scene. Known primarily for his harmonica playing, both in the Full Tilt Trio and as guest player for other artists, he has also played other instrument in a range of other settings, from straight up rock to experimental music (notably joining X-Bax in 2015). His solo recordings have a distinct outsider vibe, based in roots music (folk-rock, blues, country) with the occasional dash of psychedelia. This anothology is the first public release of material culled from his DIY recordings.SKU: VD053
