MD 037: AIDAN BAKER & KAREN WILLEMS – LANDLOS

Once again Aidan Baker joins forces with a drummer, this time with Karen Willems of Inwolves from Belgium. A very intense musical collaboration, with a massive Studio output, starting with this EP called “Landlos”.

“Landlos” features two 14minutes tracks that sputter sounds out the guitar and drumset in a way that you like to listen in a never ending loop. It´s freejazz, it´s ambient, it´s progressive-kraut-rock, it´s whatever you discover.

Baker & Willems create an aura of fragile sounds that cocoon a soundweb, forming out those two tracks. You have to listen carefully to get every aspect of the sound, there is so much room in this music to be filled by your imagination.

The tape comes in a naturally canvas pouch with brown and green stitches, all handmade. Brown tape, coloured square inlay card and download code.

This release is limited to 50 copies and will be exclusive available at the Moving Noises Festival 2017.

Update: All remaining copies are available here (selling from 07.02.2017 at 20:00 german time)

MD 024: NADJA – THE BUNGLED & THE BOTCHED (MOVING NOISES VERSION)

Nadja TapeIt is no secret: We love “The Bungled & The Botched” by Nadja, that got released by Consouling Sounds some years ago. That´s why we started this label with “Vomos”, a live split album by Nadja and N, featuring a more quiet version of “The Bungled & The Botched”. Now it´s time for a new episode.

Nadja TapeOn 21. February 2015 Nadja played the whole “The Bungled & The Botched” album at the Moving Noises Festival in the Christuskirche Bochum. It was a massive wall of noise with screeching guitar and simmering bass sounds, pushing the audience into the wooden pews. A set to remember.

The Bungled And The Botched
Absorbed In You

After listening to the recording of that church show, Nadja decided to bring this document to life, as their first tape release (update: meanwhile the ultralimited “Tabernanthe” tape came out earlier). And finally we are very proud to celebrate this special tape release with you.

Nadja Tape Bungled & BotchedThe tape comes in a clear white cardboard cover (300g) with handmade die-cut artwork. The package features a silver splatter clear tape, a mini gatefold inlay (350g) with coloured pictures of the show and a download code. The tape is limited to 121 copies and divided into two different editions that differ in the handnumbered die-cut inlays.

MD 006: AIDAN BAKER & MAIK ERDAS – CAMEO

aidan & maikLast year when Aidan Baker released his Album “The Spectrum Of Distraction” including collaborations with 18 different drummers, he went on tour with A Sun Amissa to support his album.

Cameo LPThis circumstance was the birth of an idea to do a show with Aidan Baker and a drummer. The guys over at thepostrock.de invited Aidan to do an improvisational show with Maik Erdas (former drummer of disbanded experimental Doom Trio Kodiak) in a church in Bochum (Germany).

The result was a 50 minutes long set full of different kinds of soundideas. Beginning with smooth melodies and rhythms, changing to experimental blueprints ending in an epic wall of doom sounds.

We are very proud to present you the documentation of this very unique evening. Aidan Baker put some final hands on the masters and the result is “Cameo”, a Vinyl + CD release. The vinyl contains the first and the last part of the set and the CD completes the package including the whole set from the church show.

Limited to 250 Vinyl + CD sets
Vinyl: Cameo I + II (40 minutes)
CD: Cameo I – III (49 minutes)

Cameo CDThe CD comes in a thick full colour paper wallet, with a full colour cd-onbody print. The vinyl comes in black with full colour labels housed in a stunning artwork by Phillip Kunze. Take a close look at the whole artwork and the details will keep some surprises ready. Just preorder your copy and you will find out…

MD 001: NADJA & N (23) – VOMOS

Dear experimental music lovers,

we proudly present our first release “Nadja & N (23) – Vomos“.

Captured live in a church (Christuskirche Bochum in Germany), where both artists played a stunning experimental evening.

The canadian drone-doom-duo Nadja played a set that ended up with a special version of “The Bungled & The Botched” (originally released by Consouling Sounds) and the german artist N presented a set that included tracks like “Prora Stadt” from his sold out album “Prora” (Droehnhaus) and “Baukum”, an unreleased song that was played once at this show. The sound is not only amplified by the backline, but also by the sound quality of the church itself. You can feel the bass of Leah Buckareff crawling through the ground of the church, while Aidan Bakers guitar is slowly growing from the background to build up a big noisy soundwall. N is just using his guitar and two cases full of pedals and sound effects. His distorted sounds spread like a churchorgan and you can feel waves of sounds crossing through the church hall.

To commemorate this evening in this special venue, we pressed three songs on 12inch vinyl. With this we want to support the importance of special live shows and special sound recording formats. Both things are fundamental to support this kind of music.

“Vomos” is limited to 100 copies on black vinyl (black sleeves & black labels) with handmade silk screen printed covers (40 black prints / 60 white prints). Every copy is handnumbered and comes with an insert including pictures of the show and credits. Every vinyl comes with a downloadcode for the whole album including a remix of “Baukum” by Nadja.

A – 23:25
Nadja – The Bungled and The Botched (Version)

B – 23:25
