Some of the items still available at the store…
Song from the 10″EP available on August 20, 2013 from Drag City.
Al Cisneros of Om (and Sleep, and Shrinebuilder) put so much work into this compilation — curating and carefully sequencing a wide-ranging selection of tracks, going over the mix and master four times to make sure it was perfect — for so few people to know about it. Chalk it up to unfortunate timing (2009 was a very rough year). We have a couple hundred copies left of the first (and only) printing. Cover artwork by longtime Cisneros collaborator and Arthur contributor/ally Arik Roper. $8 US. Track listing and order info:
Download: Robert A.A. Lowe and Rose Lazar — “Fantomoj de la Vitro Domo” (mp3)
This lovely piece of still-time new age is off “Eclipses,” a new album by Robert A.A. Lowe and Rose Lazar, courtesy the good folk of Thrill Jockey Records. Available on LP with 12” x 36” full color double sided poster (!), which, they say, is “included to properly voice the images, which end up as a sort of storyboard to the music…”
You may recognize Rob from his work as Lichens, or as a member of 90 Day Men and Singer…or the mighty Om, who he played with on their recent North American tour. (He’s about to leave for Europe for more dates with Om.)
Intrigued parties might also enjoy the tones of Enumclaw, previously featured in this space…
