Swell reviews of our three latest releases
On Ava Mendoza
"A crackling disc of superlative instrumental guitar work [...] played with such conviction, fire and infectious passion that you’ll be shivering with pleasure for its duration."
"Back in the day, I think she would have been showcased on a rootsy label like Rounder Records or Arhoolie, but here she be on this outre experimental label cooking up a storm."
on Liz Allbee
"undefinable studio antics, [...] a sort of demented minimal pop music rendered with highly unusual sounds and diversions, and achieving effects on a par with The Residents. [...] I hereby dub her the Circe of the avant-garde music world, and I have now been turned into a pig."
on Masaoka, Chen, Grusel, Nagai
"A record so steeped in its own exoticness that you can taste it at the back of your throat! [...] All the danger and strangeness that you could expect from modern improvised music, reviving for me some of the sense of shock and vitality I used to feel at Derek Bailey’s Company Week.
