Long Live Minóy !



" The Minóy archival project is completed. The intensity of finishing it in 2023, after ten years working on it, has made it very difficult to speak with perspective about it. (I'll need to work through that after some time off) His works have been in my head, and headphones, for the last decade... and even longer, I suppose. On Friday I will make available the final eleven Minóy releases. It will be done then, and there will be 160 finished albums from the archive. Yet and still, the archive is not a complete accounting of his tapeography, there were many, many tapes missing from it. On the flip, there were so many tapes in the archive that were previously unknown, never before heard, and it's been extremely gratifying to present these albums to his fans and whatever new ears will find him in the future. What tremendous personal energy Minóy exerted! Between 1984-1994, the ten years he was actively making sounds, he created music compulsively, manically, more than 200 finished tapes! It took me an equal amount of time to finish the digitization and remastering of the archive. The project is complete. Long live Minóy! "
- Phillip B. Klingler aka PBK, November 29th 2023

Zahgurim - I Can Feel The Fun



Audiofiles
Label : Nostalgie De La Boue [ndlb#184], Ivory Coast, 2023


Pinch me !
I can't believe I'm releasing Zahgurim's second full-length album (of new material) on my humble net-label, 38 years after their vinyl debut LP, "Moral Rearmament" (1985), which was so important to me - as were most of the records (from that era) by the artists who shared the bill at the 1985 Berlin Atonal festival.
What's more, this album is amazing, and I think many will be surprised by the diversity of musical styles it contains...

СТРАХ I РЕKА - Ghost Fractal



Audiofiles
Label : Nostalgie De La Boue [ndlb#183], Ivory Coast, 2023


СТРАХ I РЕKА (Marina Goussina & Éric Cordier) forges landscapes animated by a warm breeze and traversed by chimeras. Creating sound entities from scratch by assembling nauseating inflorescences with melodic sadness, it seeks to counter the appalling vanity of the world.
СТРАХ I РЕKА elaborates furtive rituals to provoke noisy exsanguinations from electronic conglomerates; synthesizer blasts becoming glacier-sharp frozen rivers.
"Ghost Fractal" is a conflagration of smoking stars, transfiguring our realities into myriad colors and textures. It can be consumed during a heavy sleep.


Tracklist :

1. Ghost (11:36)
2. Fractal (5:52)
3. Ycta (16:08)
4. Myca (9:31)
