Record Store Day is this Saturday, April 19 and we’d like to remind all of our awesome customers to mark their calendars and join us starting at 10AM for this fun celebration! Obviously you don’t need a special holiday to support your local record shop, but RSD gives us all a wonderful opportunity and extra reason to come together and celebrate the spirit of community and discovery through music.

For those wondering, we are indeed curating a SELECTION of “official” Record Store Day titles. Selections and quantities are limited, and there are no guarantees of what you’ll find but we can promise that we’ll be offering a selection that’s nothing short of the amazing titles we would carry and curate on a regular basis, in true Mount Analog spirit.

We are excited to announce several MOUNT ANALOG EXCLUSIVES cassette tapes that will be available to in-store purchasing customers on a first come first serve basis:

Timothy J Fairplay & Scott Fraser BIO

Crimes of the Future is a new label from Timothy J Fairplay & Scott Fraser, and follows on from their night of the same name at the Berkeley Suite, Glasgow and in Plastic People, London. Timothy and Scott both work out of Andrew Weatherall’s ‘Basement Bunker’ studio on Scrutton Street and are part of a group of dh’s becoming known as ‘The Scrutton Street Axis’. Timothy is also one half of The Asphodells with Andrew Weatherall who released their first album ‘Ruled by Passion, Destroyed by Lust’ this year on Rotters Golf Club. Over the last few years between them Scott & Timothy have released music on BIrd Scarer, World Unknown, Astro Lab, Emotional Response/Relish, Magic Feet among others. Crimes of the Future’s output is going to be harder edged and more up tempo than many of the labels both have generally been associated with, they want to express their love for leftfield house & techno.

Raudive (Oliver Ho) BIO

From the beginning on Blueprint records Oliver Ho has explored techno and house in its many different styles, ranging from the deep tribal sounds of the “Universal” album, to the dark abstract noises of his Veil album, to the funkier house sounds of his Birdland project.

All these ideas and sounds have been distilled down into the current project, Raudive. The sound of raudive takes the percussion of his earlier releases over the last 15 years and mutates it into a slower deeper sound, fusing the funk of house and the electronics of techno. The debut record on Klang Elektronik, “Audio ep” was closely followed by many releases featuring the Raudive sound evolving on record labels such as Klang, Music Man, Pokerflat, Cocoon, We Are and Macro.

Oliver’s unique sound has gained praise from many djs such as Trevor Jackson, Chloe, Laurent Garnier, Ricardo Villalobos and Sven Vath. In 2010 Oliver launched Wires, his new label which explores the areas in-between techno, experimental, post-punk and industrial new wave. The label continues to develop and embrace new style ideas and diversity, which is also reflected in the band, The Eyes In The Heat, signed to Ivan Smagghe’s Kill The Dj, a new project where Zizi Kanaan joins Oliver to create punk/disco/electro songs featuring guitar, synth, and vocals.

This attitude for bringing together the different dynamics of various genres is reflected in the deep and funky DJ sets Oliver plays at clubs around the world from New York to Tokyo to Paris and back to London.

Dreamweapon (review for recent release, Living Hell On Earth)

Although the newly announced batch of Opal Tapes cassettes includes expansively abstract techno from heavy hitters like Personable and Lumisokea, the assemblage also includes a slew of new names, including the likes of Manse, COIN and Body Boys. But one of these newcomers immediately caught my eye, with a name referencing an early spaced-out Spacemen 3 live jam and the Angus MacLise drone pieces that inspired the session. Dreamweapon’s experimental techno may not resemble the dreamlike runs of celestially sustained tones of MacLise or Sonic Boom & J. Spaceman, but the propulsive tones certainly do play up the “weapon” half of the phrase. With its debut offering, the project deploys obliterated runs of bleak techno and severely maimed electronics. Tracks like “When Blood Runs Thin” and “Living In Hell On Earth” plod through serrated plains of 4-4 rhythms while “A Sequence to Death” and “777″ splatter gray-scale canvases with muted, barely-present color and melody. It may not be what you came for, but the crushed sonics within leave nothing for want. It’s a buzzed spasm of callous grooves.

Voices from the Lake is an intensely personal project borne out of the long-standing friendship between two Italian DJ/producers, Donato Dozzy and Neel. The project extends and deepens their explorations of ambient techno, with an emphasis firmly placed on the ‘techno’ component. Listening to Voices from the Lake is an immersive experience, as the textured beats and carefully crafted rhythms have …a deeply hypnotic effect. The open, fluid structure of the music gives it an organic, natural feel, transporting you to more peaceful surroundings. With the music of Voices from the Lake there is a completely natural progression and flow, nothing is forced or hurried. The sounds develop and unfold at their own pace, creating a powerful sense of tranquility. The genesis of the Voices from the Lake album can be found in the mountains of Japan, where they made their live debut at The Labyrinth festival in 2011. This album recreates and refines that performance. For 2014 they are preparing a new live performance for a series of special shows spanning 8 cities, including this LA appearance.

ABOUT TSOB:

The Sound of Belgium explores the rich but untold story of Belgian dance music. From the dance halls with Decap organs to the golden days of Popcorn; From EBM and New Beat to Belgian House and Techno.

A chronicle of unique popular music, The Sound of Belgium goes in search of the spirit of a nation and the people that danced to it.

At the end of the 80s, Belgium was taken by surprise by the New Beat, a once immensely popular, almost surreal type of dance music. Its unexpected but short lived success didn’t only leave a mark on a new generation of musicians in Belgium in the years to come; It’s eclectic mix of sounds and styles actually had its seeds in earlier decades.

Now is the time to tell the story that has been widely ignored by ‘serious’ music critics and the mainstream media in general. This is a documentary that goes in search of the spirit of a nation, by exploring the history of Belgian’s popular music and the people that danced to it.
