The congregation has prayed the three Ts; now it’s time to reiterate! The four acolytes of the Church of Budgerigars, Duchess Says, return with their second offering, In a Fung DAY T!, a learned mix of hypnotic rock and saturated keys.
Fool, Redeemer is semi-collaborative split release between Canadian acts Picastro and Nadja. Having toured together and shared a stage many times over the course of the last half-decade, the two bands thought it was time to finally release something together. Nominally a split album, with side A featuring tracks by Picastro and side B a sidelong track by Nadja, members of both groups contributed to each other’s songs. And a certain mutual influence seeped into the compositions, Picastro’s dark-folk appearing at the beginning of Nadja’s track “Venom” and Nadja’s trademark drone/dirge tendencies lending a heavier, noisier edge to Picastro’s songs.
Anyone who has ever witnessed Acid Mothers Temple live has more than likely heard them perform Pink Lady Lemonade. It’s a staple of their live sets and has been released in various forms over the years on a couple of now out of print releases and is offered here for the first time in a double vinyl edition as well as a single CD version.
Montreal’s Bestalita is the brainchild of the shadowy (read: anonymous) Asmodeous. It is unclear who, if anyone, is lending a helping hand in the recording of this second self-titled EP to surface from the mysterious project. As with their first release, this recording finds the project wrestling with the genres of black metal and power electronics, and the results are a little more cohesive the second time around.
Judged By Twelve, Carried By Six is the debut full-length release by Blessure Grave. Founded as a duo by T. Graves and Reyna Kay in September 2008, the band blurs the lines between the Goth, Post Punk and Neo Folk genres. The pair has since developed the project into a full band while building a cult-like following, scattering various vinyl and tape releases on boutique labels around the globe.
While Alien8 Recordings has had the pleasure of releasing three full-length albums by Aidan Baker’s ambient doom project Nadja, as well as his collaborative effort Fantasma Parastasie with Tim Hecker, this marks our first solo release with the artist. Although we consider Liminoid/Lifeforms to be a solo effort, there are in fact no less than eight guest musicians helping out on the recording.
Wow! Our first 7” release! We hope that you are as excited as we are. This release pairs two like-minded bands that compliment each other and pair perfectly on this split release.
