Jooklo Duo - Free Serpents

Next month Jooklo will be paying a visit to the USA - see here for details - and a man named Chris has set up a blog following it from April 12th. It's going to have audio ('Live in Itri' is already available), videos and art from the tour so be sure to keep check of it - Trogloblog.

Jooklo Duo - Free Serpents

This is not my rip. There's absolutely nothing wrong with it, I just wish I had a copy to rip.
Sad face. Moving on...

Ten tracks of free jazz. The Duo formation of Jooklo (Virginia Genta (sax) and David Vanzan (drums)) is probably the wildest - the Finnish Quartet 'Birthday Session' probably being the closest of the other Jooklo projects that I've managed to hear.

This was recorded back in December 2006 and issued almost ten months later on Qbico, alongside 'Infinity' (Neokarma Jooklo Octet featuring Kawabata Makoto) and 'Meditative' (Neokarma Jooklo Trio) - lots of variation across those records.



Dead Slack String: Richard Moult - Ethe
Plinth - Albatross
Magikal Folk of the Faraway Tree - The Soup and the Shilling

Plus Tapes: Perseus Noble – Perseus Noble
Radar Eyes – Radar Eyes

All of the Peasant Magik releases are definitely arriving. I received the lathes at the end of last week and I think my box set is currently at the post office. Tomentosa also has copies of the box set is you missed out - check here.

Also got the new Voice of the Seven Thunders vinyl through this morning from Tchantinler (if anyone was wondering about the delay with that).

Noticed a few things moseying through Norman Records' pre-order section. First was a sleeve paying tribute to Roxy Music's 'Country Life' cover from a new J. Mascis project, Sweet Apple, titled 'Love and Desperation'.
Second was a compilation on Dust to Digital put together by the Excavated Shellac blogger / WFMU free music archive uploader - 'Excavated Shellac: Strings'. The description doesn't make much sense though, how can the songs be, "recorded and released" yet, "All previously unreleased"? Ah. Who cares... Definitely check out the blog if you've not already.
Last record I spotted was a re-issue on Arbor of Oneohtrix Point Never's 'Zones Without People'. Only another 500 copies of it but at least that means people won't have to spend more than necessary to buy used copies off ebay.

They have also just listed that PWHMOBS 'All Cows Are Sacred' CDr on House of Alchemy here. There's meant to be a second pressing due.

Low Point: Kogumaza - Sevens b/w Mara

Thanks to sno in the cbox for these two: There's another new Zelienople piece on their website. Only 65mb this time.

Vulpiano Records have re-uploaded the Natural Snow Buildings album with the skip removed. There's also a Flac version available and a new release from Year of the Tiger.

'Honest Strings: A Tribute To The Life And Work Of Jack Rose' is meant to be downloadable now ($15) but it looks as though there has been an error with the dates - Three Lobed were expecting 19th March but it looks like someone at Fina has put it back a month.

Important Records: Robedoor - Burners
Jon Mueller & Z'ev - Hydration
Mugstar - ... Sun, Broken...
Kid 606 - Songs About Fucking Steve Albini
Merzbow - Ecobag / 13 Birds In A Bag +1 (14CD)

Olde English Spelling Bee: Forest Swords - Dagger Paths
Rangers - Suburban Tours
James Ferraro - Last American Hero

As always, I'm sure I've missed something. This time it feels like more than usual...

No problem (regarding upload).

Had no idea it was a clear record. I'd seen the black streaks but vaguely assumed it was against a pale grey.
Great pictures you've taken of the records. Most jealous of the 'Meditative' vinyl - I love that album.

Turns out it wasn't the Peasant Magik box at the post office. I'm a bit confused that the lathes arrived first so may shoot him an email later.

thanks for upload but there are 8 tracks on folder

I feel incredibly stupid for not noticing that. As I don't own a copy I don't know what's right, the upload or the discogs entry. Maybe this rip is from the CD and the vinyl edition on Qbico contained a couple of extra tracks?
