A text-based piece based on a short story by Paul Sheerbart written in 1902. Distinctly narrated by Darren Harris (The Shadow Ring), with accompanying music by Idea Fire Company in collaboration with BRRR (Timothy Shortell). An arresting listen, and a lost gem in the Anti-Natural canon.

R5 – Sean McCann – “Music For Private Ensemble” LP

McCann’s first new solo album since 2011′s The Capital. Written, recorded, and laboriously edited over the course of 17 months, it demonstrates a more serious study of orchestration and timbre than his previous work, revealing McCann’s most refined work to date.

R4 – Idea Fire Company – “Rags To Riches” LP

 An edited and remastered issue of a tape by the IFCO quartet. Rags To Riches is a live record documenting pieces from 2003 through 2005. Exhibiting a contemplative and well-informed use of electronics, radio, and voice. Their mechanical and uncompromising aesthetic is pronounced, and Rags To Riches reminds us all why Idea Fire Company are such an important contemporary outfit.

Price: $13.95

R1 – Sean McCann & Matthew Sullivan – “Vanity Fair” LP

 …Lush and enchanting. The pieces are quite varied, ranging from the majestic to the tormented, occasionally synthesizing an almost humorous blend of the two. Includes a manipulated animal and glockenspiel march, a chamber string and glass rhapsody, and a somber harp and phone ballad – it challenges the listener and expresses the development of both acclaimed artists.
Edition of 560
 

Price: $12.95

R2 – Radiant Husk – “Micromegas” CDr

…Soaked with nebulous tenor saxophone, who’s layers build and build, inventing a storm of tape saturated drone. Many of the songs are loop-based, slowly slipping out of orbit – forming allusions to minimalism. However, “Micromegas” contains a fierce spirit that minimalism can often lack. The album is bookended by hypnotic chord organ pieces, which are particularly enchanting.

Full color artwork in jewel case, with hand numbered and stamped insert.
Edition of 200.
 

Price: $5.95
 

R3 – Troy Schafer – “Evening Song Awaken” CDr


Schafer’s ability to intertwine passionate composition and technical proficiency is rare and inspiring. Throughout the album counter-themes emerge and propel the pieces though frantic climaxes. These flares are contrasted though many slow pastoral reflections. You can really hear his devotion to the music.

Full color artwork in jewel case, with hand numbered and stamped insert.
Edition of 200.
  

Price: $5.95

A collection of outtakes and practice sessions from Music For Private Ensemble. Comprised of six pieces, four of which are exclusive to this lathe. 20 minutes long.

Edition of 25

SOLD OUT

“Prelusion” LP (Root Strata)

“The definitive version of this triptych of tectonic drift originally released as a CD-R on the artists’ own label in 2011. ‘Our Silhouette’, which blankets the whole of the first side with jewel like piano runs and distant fading synths, may be one of McCann’s most elegant moves. The reverse holds two tracks of long form organ / string plateaus that float elegantly in space, refracting light & sound in patterns around the head.”
Edition of 500
 

Price: $13.95

“Sincere World” LP Grey Blue Wax (Amethyst Sunset)

Newly released full length album (was supposed to be my second official one), yet got pushed back a few years due to pressing issues. Ambient and soothing all the way through. Main instrumentation was piano, voice, and strings. Recorded in 2009 and early 2010, released by Amethyst Sunset. These colored copies are exclusive to this store – and are limited to 100. SOLD OUT

“Sincere World” CD (Amethyst Sunset)

CD version of LP, includes two additional songs. The CD master sounds especially lovely. 

Price: $8.95

“Chances Are Staying” LP (DNT Records)

Debut vinyl release from Sean McCann. Recorded in the summer of 2009, this album was meant to be a continuation of the kaleidoscopic sound of his first albums, “Phylum Sigh” and “Frame Of Mind.” The first side explores stringed melodic minimalism, yet with much more poignant and somber motifs. The second side displays the ambit of his sound, from rapturous violin and saxophone blurs to ecstatic mind-warps. Full color matte jackets with insert – in a numbered edition of 400

Price: $9.95
