Longmont Potion Castle- 8 (2010)

This latest volume of telephone-terror-surrealism somehow captures the experience of when our lines get crossed with other variational-orbits, but in this case, from what some of us believe, it's intentional. The labels below best describe what's to be found within, with equally essential volumes found here.

Various- Music for Mentalists: Unexpected Sounds for the Connoisseur (Psychic Circle, 2009)

Compilers Mick Dillingham and Nick Saloman wonder for what commercial reason these sonorities were released by record executives. The "obscure, peculiar, and in some cases downright disturbing" considerations found within include an account of one of our ships landing in Northampton, "Rock Around the Clock" in Yiddish, a disco "Arnold Layne," a rap by TV Host Jim Bowen, Hylda Baker covering Pussycat's "Substitute," David Carradine's "Chicken Song," Paul Damian helping you with the pronunciation of Welsh village Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrob-wllllantysiliogogogoch, and much more. Not "bizarre and misguided" at all when observing from a trans-variational orbit, but a detailed description of their origins can be found here.

Various- Russkie Wig-Out! Demented Surf/ Electro/ Exotica from Behind the Iron Curtain (Omni Recording Company, 2011)

A collection of tracks centering around Oleg Gitarkin (Messer Chups) and Oleg Kostrow (Supersonic Future), along with their collaborative group Messer Für Frau Müller, originally released in this particular Russian Federation between 2000 and 2009. The 1987 lifting of the ban on public dancing created something singularly unique in this variation. Yet another strong argument for Earth-2012 not being excised for redundancy.

Moebius- 40 days dans le désert B (Stardom, 2001)

We can think of no better way to explain the experience of what "suspended animation" is like for a mere 428 days. The black-and-white artwork shown in this interview can provide a preview of what can be found within.
