Pro-duped CD-R, hand-assembled folders, edition of 50, stamped, sticker-sealed, 12 tracks. Wonderment.
From Canada’s far-left coast, a deep folkloric journey into the library of the transcendental mind. Twelve cuts of spoken word collages, tribal percussions and primal psychedelias.
Stephen Wolf (of noise combo Summer Amp and avant improv trio New Yaki) returns in his solo form from a far too-long hiatus. This isn’t the bedroom cut-up of yester-year, this is cabin fever-induced hallucinations for the now. What will the future bring? Tomorrow never knows, but Partli Cloudi is a window into the present state of world (un)conciousness.
Two new releases in the Moonwood live rehearsal tapes series. Both feature Stephen Wolf (Summer Amp, New Yaki, Partli Cloudi, etc) on percussion, prepared bass guitar and, we think, moaning vocals.
Vol. 3 is over an hour of live jams recorded straight to 2-track as a duo over 2 days somewhere between the pyramids and the cosmos.
Vol. 4 (aka “Moonwolf”) is a half-hour set recorded live as a trio on October 6th. “Mowgli” is a straight live take whereas “Akela” is three live jams spliced together, adding analogue synth and a barrage of percussion instruments into the usual Moonwood stew.

The second in our series of split tapes. This time we’ve paired up Healthy Animal (FLA) with Summer Amp (BC).
Side 3: Healthy Animal – 7X Untitled. Seven nameless compositions from the East Coast of the USA. Rhythmic and fuzzed-out, Healthy Animal’s music is as much a part of the No Wave and Krautrock traditions as it is the new schools of Chillwave and Shitgaze. But who cares about labels? HA bury pummeling rhythms under waves of blissed-out white-static psych haziness. Sounds kind of like a possible score to Charles Burns’ graphic novel Black Hole as performed by aliens who only know earth music from hearing Brian Eno on a poorly tuned radio-station.
Side 4: Summer Amp – Danger Zone. Five pro-wrestling inspired psych/noise jams from the West Coast of Canada. Features members of New Yaki and The Madonna Bangers. The vibe might be described as the sunburned hand of Tully Blanchard. Or tribal/industrial folk music for life at the end of the universe when there’s no electricity to play your Can and VxPxC records.
