Just as a warning though, they weren't happy with this cassette re-release and ended up pulling it from sale - Aquarius Records kindly chucked in a free copy with a bulk PT order - but you won't find much wrong with it, hopefully.
Francis moved around a lot, born in Cameroon, educated in both France and the USA, temporarily lived in Ghana before heading back and settling in France. This album shows the styles of music he came across through his travels, it's not a simple guitar album or jazz record, the songs happily go on for up to 11 minutes and there is a well worked mix of vocal and instrumental work across the whole release.
A1. Haiti (6:20)
A2. The Song I Keep Humming (11:10)
B1. New Track (8:25)
B2. Super Jungle (9:25)

Centre of Wood have kicked off their Cave series with three very dark sounding releases.
Root Strata opened up orders to their a capella single series, entitled 'Tsuki No Seika'. It will consist of four separate 7"s split between two groups - so 8 bands (Grouper, Christina Carter, Richard Youngs, Islaja, Xela, Zelienople, Hisato Higuchi, Valet) - and cost you $40-50 depending on where you are.
They've also put out a CD edition of Grouper's 'Cover the windows and walls' album.
Dull Knife release a new 7" by Circuit des Yeux.
I'm trying to find out about that Twinsistermoon CD on Ultra Hard Gel, if I hear anything I'll leave a note somewhere.
UPDATE: Heard this second hand but it doesn't sound as though this CD is close. Would be interesting to find out more but in the meantime if you want to hear it you may probably be better off trying to download it (if you don't own the LP).
If anyone hears about it please say. I'll try and keep tabs on the UHG website in case something appears.
Will try and get a new post sorted for the weekend.
If anyone has an opinion on the rip quality of either this or the Part Wild Horses Mane tape in comparison to some of the earlier cassette rips (Keijo, Ben Nash, Mako Sica, Barrabarracuda) I'd love to hear. Recently discovered an old cassette player I had in the early 90s that I think has a better sound quality than my walkman but my computer speakers aren't good enough to get much of an opinion from with regards to rip quality.
