Just ordered these two:

1 x Paul Flaherty - Bill Nace - Thurston Moore (E#21e) = $11.00
1 x The Door CD (E#100i) = $9.00

These prices are really good.

My Flaherty / Nace / Moore arrived over the weekend. I've been listening to it today, and it's bloody marvellous. Every SY fan should be required to buy it.

I've had one cursory listen and was a bit disappointed. It doesn't quite escalate to the Borbetomagus heights of din I was hoping for, whilst the quieter parts aren't as mesmeric as they might've been. That said, it was a cursory listen, will need a few listens to make up my mind about it.

Hush Arbors released today! Body: Check it out, Mp3!
http://www. ecstaticpeace. com/kits/mp3/follow_closely. mp3

Keith Wood, along with constant foil Leon Dufficy, is Hush Arbors, and while his self-titled Ecstatic Peace! debut is not his first album by any means - he's been at this almost ten years - it does provide the perfect introductory point to Hush Arbor's distinctive take on psych folk. Combining the pensive songwriting of John Phillips circa Wolfking, the plaintive honesty of Neil Young, and the fishtank-gazing cacophony of Six Organs of Admittance (Wood is a frequent collaborator), Wood writes classic-sounding songs that sound readymade for AM radio, circa 1968.


These songs would play as comfortably over a scene from The Wonder Years as they would piping from a noxious chillout tent at Terrastock. There are songs here that resonate with the minor key melancholy of Bert Jansch or perhaps even Mark Kozelek, while others hint at a Wire subscriber's Siamese Dream, all propulsive rhythms and lysergic electric guitar.


Some albums are 'growers' - not this one. While repeated listens reveal more and more details, as good albums should, this is also an album that commands immediate attention. Try to put it on in a crowded room - just try. You'll have a 'High-Fidelity-Beta-Band' scene on your hands within two minutes.


"Sounds like somebody spiked Buck Owens' whisky with some double dipped acid"-NME
"(Keith) Wood takes the bare bones of Americana and makes something personal and timeless.
" - Daniel Spicer, The Wire

Get it!

Religious Knives:
The Door


[Ecstatic Peace; 2008]
Rating: 7.7 As half of the exhilarating, first-rate drone quartet Double Leopards, Michael Bernstein and Maya Miller created chillingly expansive extreme noise-- a distinctive mesh of sounds that peaked with the group's brilliantly sinister release, Halve Maen. Since forming Religious Knives in 2005, the duo have released a slew of CD-Rs and cassettes, largely through their own Heavy Tapes imprint. Now, with the addition of percussionist Nate Nelson of Mouthus and bassist Todd Cavallo, they've been spreading their sonic rash through basement shows, living rooms, and the beat-up tape decks of noise enthusiasts.
The Door was produced with long-time supporter and label owner Thurston Moore, and from the crawling guitar line of early track "Basement Watch", it suggests a considerably more melodic, traditionally structured album than one might expect considering the ear-splitting frenzy of their previous releases. Of course, this is all relative: The Door is still firmly in a field of its own, offering six tracks that are equal in barbed psychedelic power yet compliment one another in such a way that this album-- although brief by the clock-- feels substantial, fully-realized, and bizarrely anthemic.
Stretching the sinews of their sound almost to the breaking point, Religious Knives find a balance between the repetitive rhythmic skeleton of krautrock and the psychedelic keyboard thrusts of early Doors. The band's collective attunement to the finer elements of noise turns out to be an ideal complement to their songwriting skills, particularly because they use abrasiveness sparingly and wisely-- just barely peaking through, yet always present. As vocalists, Miller and Bernstein wrestle against each other in tough monotones; Miller has shadows of Grace Slick burning beneath her dark tones, and, combined with Bernstein's hollowed-out baritone, it's gloriously menacing when they sing lines such as "Where does it come from/ The feeling you get when you want to hold back nothing/ Your eyes are weapons in broad daylight/ Your fists are iron fucking arrows/ Control is lost" on "Decisions Are Made".
The Door builds up in intensity as its course develops. The opening tracks "Basement Watch" and live improvisation "Downstairs" have the same lurking energy that characterizes the album, but "Major Score" slithers down into a dripping mess, upending the distinction between keyboards and guitars while riding the distortion hot enough to have shades of the Black Angels. By the time "On a Drive" rolls around, the listener is lead even further through the group's murky waters, as a bare-boned drum patterns set the pace for Bernstein's tale of midnight beach wandering and a flood of gloomy fuzz. Religious Knives have said that their aim with this album is to capture the feeling of Brooklyn's streets, and The Door does indeed sound as though their music is reflecting off concrete. Or being burned into it.
