Side 13 — SILENT LAND TIME MACHINE

Track listing: Many Many Happy Returns / The Contours Of Perfect Distance.

They say everything’s bigger in Texas. That includes the mind-expanding tones coming out of out of Silent Land Time Machine’s epic looped violin compositions that weave and drone like tumbleweeds on crack’d black asphalt. Good sounds from bad lands. “Many Many Happy Returns” recorded LIVE at Marigold Studios (R.I.P.) in London, ON “The Contours Of Perfect Distance” recorded LIVE at Le Cagibi, in Montréal, QC, with additional amenities provided by Khôra & Nick Kuepfer.

BIO: SLTM; an inadvertent aural accumulator; a fractured signal; a concerted, compassionate memory resistor; the IN/OUT of an organic circuit experiencing itself for the first time; a starry-eyed-bliss-transformer; nerves attaching, detaching, strengthening, and severing; aimed at the clearing of neural circuitry with the frequency of white wind.

Side 14 — MOONWOOD, Soul Oaks

Track listing: Introlude / Drone #3 / Cardamom #2 / November /Cardamom #1 / Woodpecker

Moonwood guitarist, Jakob Rehlinger, works through six electric and acoustic solo guitar improvisations trying to get somewhere in the Easts (Far- and Middle-) while remaining rooted in the Americas. Lyrical, soaring airs played over dark, oily drones. Recorded direct to 2-track live in Moonwood’s rehearsal studio between Nov 2011 and May 2012.

BIO: Moonwood is the psych-improv project of Toronto (ON) guitarist Jakob Rehlinger, often joined by Jacqueline Noire on percussion, vocals and woodwinds. Solo or as a duo, Moonwood’s music is informed by (while not necessarily adhering to the traditions of) Tibetan funeral chants, krautrock, Balinese gamelan, classic psychedelic rock, traditional Japanese and South Asian music, dub, free-jazz and the usual grab-bag of avant-folk styles

Stay tuned for more details on both these releases!

SILENT LAND TIME MACHINE (http://sltm.bandcamp.com/)
From Austin, TX this one man avant folk soundscaper plays in Toronto for the first time. A master of warm guitar textures, builds loops and layers only to mix them into his own brand of post psych-folk. The love and warm of folk mixed with beautiful swells & sweeps of post-rock, full sounds washing over your body.

MOONWOOD (http://moonwood.bandcamp.com/)
Freak psych/folk project of Jakob Relinger (Arachnidisc) occupies an eerie space between some dark forest & the spiritual beyond that only exists in some winding & daunting expanse of space. His haunting guitar work exudes a elusive warmth & nostalgia that draws us into his realm. Vocal hums float through the atmosphere with draw out didgeridoo tones. Flute tones interact with bells and chime percussion as guitar notes navigate this gypsy-esque landscape. Mystical psych for the modern forest dweller. Dig!

SYMBOL (http://soundcloud.com/lightlodge)
Austin, TX ambient kraut synth relaxer, lays out some space-scapes for the modulating masses. Sounds stretched out to the point where they sparkle & glisten. The gentle hum of a note becomes a fuzz drenched wave only to subside back into a peaceful hum wavering in the expanse of time.SOLHORN (http://solhorn.bandcamp.com/)
Avant folk/jazz/pop outsider Michael Mørkholt of Denmark preforms his compositions as Solhorn in Canada for the first time! Folk prog structures filled with a sense of playfulness akin to Shugo Tokumaru. Meandering songs, guitar notes joke with percussion in a languid way. Electronics bleep & bloop, ringing out there tones in a dialogue with flutes. Probably some of the most fun music you’ll have heard in a while. Come make the hang.

Upcoming Releases 2012

13/12/2011

We have some great stuff planned for release beginning in January of the new year!

CDs

Jakobsons, Espvall, Szelag — A really very special set from an amazing cello trio featuring Helena Espvall and the ladies from the fabulous Myrmyr. To call the music merely beautiful or mesmerizing would be to imply it doesn’t somehow grab your heart in both hands and give it a spiritual friction burn. Naturally, we’re doing some special packaging for this one.

MoonwoodTBD. The follow up/companion album to the River Ghosts LP. A further trip into rural Americana by way of Asian psych-funk and lunar space-rock.  Mostly instrumental, all the “proper” recordings Jakob has done leading up to the birth of the “Moonwood mark II” duo (featuring vocalist/percussionist/flutist Jacqueline Noire) which should also see a proper release of some sort later in 2012.

Split Tapes

9/10: Khôra / Nick Kuepfer — From what I understand, the boys are going to cross-pollinate each other’s sides on this split. So is it a really a split? We’ll see. Like chocolate and peanut butter or wine and cheese or romance and comedy, it’s going to be an awesome combination.

11/12: Silent Land Time Machine / Jeremy Kelly — The cross pollination continues as Khôra and Kuepfer show up on one of the tracks on SLTM’s side—angelic drones and wicked noises. Jeremy’s set is a magical journey into a post-apocalyptic folk wasteland. Like a version of the movie, The Road, but starring Bob Dylan and filmed on super-8.

13/14: Elfin Choirs (Colin Fisher)/ Aaron Lumley — Two of Toronto’s freakiest avant-jazz giants. Aaron’s solo stand-up bass sets have been one of the highlights of 2011, we’re hoping to capture some of that magic for posterity here. Colin has been vague about the material he has recorded (but has yet to mix down) for his side. But the words “guitar” and “drums” and “saxophone” have been out forward, which can old mean good things.

Digital

Moonwood – A krautrock EP called Trans Lunar Express is slated for release on the Bandcamp site. Also a digital “box set” compilation/clearing house of all of Moonwood’s Heavy Moon space rock albums and EPs recorded since 2007, including some new material, will be available here.
