While rehearsing for live dates in Winter of 2013 and Spring of 2014, BABEL (Jakob Rehlinger) recorded over 11 hours of prepared guitar improvisations (direct to 2-track stereo). In a feat of endurance, he distilled those hours down to one 79 minute album, ZWERM (“Swarm”). Those familiar with BABEL’s Heurter and Rillingen albums will know what to expect from these solo guitar explorations—percussive, almost industrial rhythms blended with harmonic drones and sparse, lyrical melody lines. Added to the existing recipe are elements of spoken-word cassette collages which were sampled and mixed live into the throbbing hum.


AD114. TOTAAL: The Complete ZWERM Sessions

Additionally, we’re offering an extremely limited edition 48-track USB called TOTAAL which contains 11 hours and three minutes of material from the complete sessions plus two concert recordings. The ZWERM album is included in its final 6-track form, 8 additional takes on the theme, along with six other collections titled MAELSTROM (‘Sturm’ variations), OVIS (electric sheep), VERWORFEN (discarded segments collaged together), THANATOPHOBIK (ghost voices and the fear of death) and VÅR (live performances in Spring).

Side 5: Theo AngellLive @ Secret Project Robot 4-17-11

Mightily impressed by his Auraplinth and Dearly Beloved albums, we’re pretty excited to present this 40 minute live set by Theo Angell (JOMF, Hall of Fame) accompanied by one Hamish Kilgour (The Clean) recorded at Secret Project Robot in March. Arcane Eastern ragas and spooky Appalachian rags; ethereal whispers and raging acoustic freak-outs; jaunty alpine whistles and deep desert ceremonies. This here is bare bones psyche-folk wedding the weird and the beautiful to make babies with odd numbers of limbs and psychic eyes.

Side 6: Moonwood – The Path

Recorded by Moonwood during the same sessions as the mostly instrumental River Ghosts material, these nine vocal songs are vaguely woven together by Taoist mysticism and modern day beards. Southwestern reverb, droning psychedelic fuzz, Eastern percussion and plucked acoustic instruments mix with ritual chants and soft-spoken tales about death and small woodland animals.
