Lunar Mansions / Bandcamp fee-free TODAY!!

Posted in Merch, On The Web, Recording on 01/05/2020 by chrish

Greetings, pop pickers.

Bandcamp are having another fee-free* day, from 8am today (UK time) – the idea being to help musicians make more from selling music online as they are unable to gig under lockdown.

We are currently donating all proceeds from our downloads (which are all name-your-price) to the Trussell Trust food bank network and have raised around £500 so far. So if there are any gaps in your collection, please give generously.

We also have physical merchandise for sale in the form of LPs, CDs, cassettes and T-shirts, and all audio items include a download available immediately after purchase.

And to celebrate we are releasing a 20 minute long new track – Lunar Mansions – originally broadcast on The Dark Outside internet radio special on 4th of April.

Once you’ve checked out our stuff, be sure to have a browse and find some other great music and (if you can) help support artists and musicians at this difficult time.  Some of our past purchases are here if you’d like to have a peek at what we’re into!

*Bandcamp are waiving their revenue share (normally 10% of the sale price) during this 24 hour period. PayPal fees still apply, so please use the Cart if buying more than one item, otherwise they are processed as separate transactions.

 

For Food banks

Posted in Merch on 13/04/2020 by chrish

Since we have no gigs to sell merch at for the foreseeable future, we are pleased to offer online the last few copies of FOR NEPAL, a double LP compilation put together by Thom at Evil Hoodoo Records in aid of a charity he was involved with following the 2015 earthquake in Nepal. This appeal has now closed so we’re donating the proceeds of these sales to the Trussell Trust food bank network.  Food banks are under particular strain at the moment, with increased demand due to people being unable to earn and having additional expenses during lockdown; and increased difficulty in operating and obtaining supplies.

Lots of great bands featured, from these shores and further afield – if you like the kind of music we make you’re bound to find some gems on here.  Double LP on black & white splatter vinyl, with insert and download code.

UPDATE: These have sold out. Thank you!

Februpdate

Posted in Gigs, Merch, On The Web, Radio & Podcasts, Recording on 19/02/2020 by chrish

First of all, we’re overwhelmed with the great response to Night Lands – thanks to all the blogs, podcasts etc. that have featured it (list below) and everyone who’s bought it of course.  The album is already sold out in physical formats (possibly a few left in the US at Feeding Tube) but we are planning a small re-press later in the year.  Meanwhile it is still available to stream and download on Bandcamp along with our entire back catalogue.  In particular if you enjoyed the free-flowing, spontaneous music of Night Lands you might like our earlier collections of practice room jams, Thermionic Emissions vol. 1 & 2 which are pay-what-you-like downloads.  On the other hand if you prefer something more definite, we offer the last remaining vinyl copies of Adam Stone & DSA Live In Belper: “40-plus minutes of electric satire and caustic future-punk aimed straight at the throbbing heads of an appreciative crowd of misfits.”

We have provided a new recording – a 16 minute piece entitled Lunar Mansions – to the forthcoming Dark, Outside broadcast The da-daRK OUTSIDE, which will transmit from Dada artist Kurt Schwitters‘s Merz Barn in Cumbria as part of the Aerial Festival on 28th-29th of March.

On the live front we are lining up two batches of gigs – some in May & June and then some in October / November – more details as they are announced (and we are open to offers) but suffice to say that we are finally going international!

Those Night Lands reviews: Fragmented Flâneur  |  [sic] Magazine  |  Fighting Boredom  |  Reverb Is For Lovers  |  Terrascope  |  The Sleeping Shaman  |  Echoes and Dust  |  New Music Social  |  Fuzzy Sun

Podcasts & Internet Radio: Nightfolk In The Afternoon  |  Unending Subtleties  |  Bob Osborne  |  Dandelion Radio  |  Turn Me On, Dead Man

Let us know if we’ve missed any!

Thanks for listening.

New Year, New Albums

Posted in Merch, Recording on 10/01/2020 by chrish

Yes, it’s the year 2020. Welcome to the future.

We have TWO new albums for you – officially released next month but now available to stream and pre-order.

Live In Belper is another collaboration with Adam Stone, recorded in Stone’s home town of Belper, Derbyshire close to the scene of our first encounter which resulted in In The Year 2039.  Adam explains more and you can preview a couple of tracks exclusively at The Fragmented Flâneur.

Night Lands is the extraordinary result of an afternoon jamming with then brand new bassist Jack and a visiting Nik Rayne of The Myrrors. Again you can find out more and stream the album at The Fragmented Flâneur.

Both albums are available to pre-order now at Cardinal Fuzz and our Bandcamp site.

 

The Free Territory?

Posted in Merch, Recording on 24/04/2019 by chrish

The Free Territory

Posted in Merch, Recording on 03/04/2019 by chrish

Our new album The Free Territory is now available to pre-order on our Bandcamp. There are also a few left at Cardinal Fuzz including bundles with other CF albums, and it should soon be up at Feeding Tube Records in the USA.

The Free Territory is Dead Sea Apes’ darkest, moodiest work to date, their characteristic unfolding instrumentals now cast in high lonesome drones and haunted atmospherics.

Taking shape in the shadows over several years, The Free Territory brings Dead Sea Apes’ more experimental and introspective aspects to the fore. Dysmorphic loops, evolving textures and improvisations are suffused with the hiss of old tape decks and analogue effects, and adherence to the default guitar/bass/drums setup is strictly optional. It also represents a transitional phase for the group, having been partly recorded with departing bassist Nick Harris. More recently, Nik Rayne of The Myrrors dropped in on a winter sojourn to the UK, not only guesting on two tracks but also creating the beautifully detailed copier collage sleeve art.

Never ones to retrace their steps or be steered by voguish reference points, Dead Sea Apes here find themselves at unfamiliar coordinates with only their instincts for guidance. The Free Territory is both spatial and claustrophobic, massive yet weightless, grounded yet in constant motion; timeless yet reflecting and resonating with the age.
