New vinyl on Blackest Rainbow

JUST IN
Owl Xounds Exploding Galaxy – Splintered Visions LP (Blackest Rainbow) 11.50

“BR worked with Adam Kriney of La Otracina and Owl Xounds on the Owl Xounds/Family Battle Snake split cassette back in May 2007, and its great to have this raging free jazz improv psyche out bunch back on Blackest Rainbow again for this awesome LP. ‘Splintered Visions’ was recorded back in February 2007, and has been torn from the archives of some of the wildest jams put to tape. This time round the group is in a quartet zone with Kriney on drums, Gene Janas on upright bass, Mario Rechtern on saxophones, electronics and devices, and Shayna Dulberger on upright bass. That’s right, TWO upright bass shredders! All the wild instrumentation laid down blazes to the sky, getting mightier and mightier, everything wildly bright and energetic, this LP will rage through your psychosis like nothing else!  Housed in equally insane psychedelic hippy techi-colour sleeves designed by the one and only Jefferson Mayday Mayday Vimana. The vision on this one (both visually, and sonically) is outta this world! Pressed on virgin vinyl and limited to 250 copies.” (BR)

Hush Arbors – Alive 2LP (Blackest Rainbow) 16

“‘Alive’ is the first vinyl outing from Keith Wood’s Hush Arbors since his split 7″ with Jerusalem and the Starbaskets on The Great Pop Supplement back in 2008. This double LP set comprises of two live recordings from Hush Arbors, the first being ‘Live, Heeley Institute, Sheffield, England’ which was infact the first release on Blackest Rainbow back in 2007, it was released in an edition of 101 copies on CDR. Finally this is out on vinyl, as it really is a fantastic set of Keith and his acoustic guitar playing what was one of the best venues that was frequently used here in Sheffield, so many great performances went down there (remember MV & EE’s set from there that Singing Knives released?), and Keith’s really was a great night. The second LP is ‘Live from Kittery, Maine’, a set from 12th February 2011. A whole different sound to Hush Arbors with this one. Keith is joined by Jason Ajemian and John Moloney (Sunburned Hand of the Man). Keith’s sound has developed from the loner psyche folk of his earlier records and ‘Heeley’ to a more bourbon soaked country rock out vibe. ‘Alive’ is a fantastic example of two great, yet very different, performances the ever changing Hush Arbors. Pressed on heavyweight virgin vinyl and housed in a gatefold jacket, edition of 350 copies.” (BR)
