After a year hiatus, DNT has a new release to offer, an LP by Finland's Uton. Visit the label catalog page for more info. Also, 9 old DNT releases are back in limited stock, I unearthed a box with a couple copies of older releases. We have many used items for sale now, be sure to check those out. New website coming very soon.-Tynan

DNT058 - Uton "Echoes in the Wonderland" LP $15ppd (ltd to 110)
After countless releases on labels such as Housecraft, Digitalis, Dekorder, Sloow, etc. and his own label, Om Ha Sva Ha Ksha Ma La Va Ra Yam, Uton finds a new home with DNT. "Echoes in the Wonderland" is the first full-length LP by Finland's Jani Hirvonen since 2009's "Unexplained Objects" (Dekorder) and is no less weird than his previous excursions from the outer regions of the cosmos to the minds' innerspace. As the album title could say, this is a way to the "wonderland" (also called the "other side" - many names been used during the history of humankind), which shouldn't be mixed for the adventure's of famous Alice - even it might give some idea about what is going to happen, but that's just a start of it all - the start of nothing else but listener's mind. What are the "echoes" then? They are something which are coming from beyond to here where we stay - this album being a link between these worlds; inside & outside; like they are working together. Psychedelic transmissions of consciousness. Bizarro alien communication that's difficult to pinpoint, Uton's "sheer ravishing beauty, elegancy and variegation is stashed behind a wall of grey, inscrutable haze gorgeous melodies and voices, reeds and alien sounds gleaming through the mist from time to time, shimmering like diamonds through layers of dust." (Dekorder's words) Co-released with Finnish label Ikuisuus in a unrighteously limited pressing of 275 with full-color pro-printed jackets designed by Uton himself. Customers outside of North America/Asia should visit Ikuisuus for a copy (http://www.ikuisuus.net/) The DNT edition is limited to 110 hand-numbered copies.

first review:

"There is ambient music that puts you to sleep, and then there is ambient music that sits you upright, wide-eyed, scared of everything in your room, and convinced that an abnormally tall, slender man with no face is going to suddenly appear in your window if you make the mistake of blinking. As suggested by the dichotomy between “echoes” and “wonderland” in the album title, this one pretty much covers that entire spectrum. With no real rhythm to ground the listener and establish familiarity, the various noises and strange vocal loops start and stop at random, leaving you in a strange world of displacement. Don’t go swimming. Don’t open the door. And for god’s sake, don’t walk in the woods by yourself."
