Buzzy Lee is the beautiful singer/songwrtier project of Sasha Spielberg. Her lilting Kate Bush-From-The-Canyon voice has us in a puddle. Her debut EP is produced by Nicolas Jaar, and this tape is exclusively available at Mount Analog.
Puce Mary and Jesse Sanes commit their intensely personalised JH1.FS3 duo to wax, with a 12” x 12” colour insert/lyric sheet.
“We may be going out on a limb here but, all clues – from the intimate photographs to the record’s lyrics and its slippery electronic movements – point to Frederikke and Jesse as a couple exploring their mutual binds, which, if we’re correct, places them a in a strong lineage of recording couplings that includes Chris & Cosey, Genesis and Lady Jaye P-Orridge, Venetian Snares and Hecate etc. Either way, it’s easy to pick up on the sparking frisson of energies, yin and yang, generated by JH1.FS3’s proximity, romantic or not.
Comprising the entirety of their 6-track Silence.DOM  tape along with four new pieces, Loyalty forms a marriage of sensibilities, of sensualities, of shared tastes, quite literally framing their time together in the record’s diaristic bookends of 28.08.2014 and 18.12.2015 and documenting their unhiemlich movements between the gripping dungeon tones of 1000 Synonymous Titles About Despair, and with unsettling closeness with the humid location recordings of Damaged Seeds and Virtues Of Desperation, before they really come together in the exquisitely prurient-esque Visions of a Scene (Coney Island).” – Boomkat Review

Alessandro Cortini (Nine Inch Nails) and Japanese noise legend Masami Akita (Merzbow) share a mutual love for the EMS Synthi, a British synthesizer from the early ’70s notorious for its patch matrix, portability, and distinct tone. Astonishingly, these two disparate artists meld into a single sound as they flex the analog circuitry of the EMS Synthi in new ways; giving this classic synth a modern workout and proving that, in capable hands, a 40-year-old analog synthesizer is a tool for the ages. Metallic shimmer print on heavy duty jackets; 180 gram vinyl.

“Vignettes and poems of loss, longing, learning, and life. Honest reflections and thoughtful provocations – relatable, raw, and unnerving.” -Gibby Miller
Delroy Edwards has come a long way. 2012 marked his introduction into the world of Dance Music via Ron Morelli’s Imprint LIES. After offering up essential dance floor singles like ‘4 Club Use Only’ and ‘Heart and Soul’ Edwards’ established himself as a producer with a unique touch and style. With a growing desire to control his own output and make a more significant statement, Delroy set off to start his own imprint, L.A. CLUB RESOURCE.
Creatively directing his own imprint became a platform for him and over the course of two years L.A.C.R. created one of the most palpable musical experiences in the field. The label released music in a range of styles from a span of generations, the only constant was the high output and stellar art direction. Many releases produced by the label head himself, Delroy’s production were lauded for their piercing simplicity, grace and attitude.
In his first LP for the label, Edwards’ has arranged a sincerely personal moment. The 30-track effort marks a special moment in his growth blending current interests in punk and electronics into an outsider narrative like no other. From Devo to J Dilla the influences across the record are subtle but respectful. Regardless of influence, Hanging at the Beach feels unequivocally new. Experiencing the LP for the first time speaks to the Californian experience in its full range. Certain moments call to the beaches of Monterey while others speak to the sleeze that lines Hollywood Blvd. Edwards doesn’t distance himself from the production style that has defined him and the label, but this effort is a long playing collection, a directed, new moment for the prolific producer.

“Kaitlyn’s solo debut Euclid (primarily written on a Buchla Music Easel synthesizer) was inspired by her love of mbira music, early electronic music pioneers like Laurie Spiegel, Oskar Sala, and Terry Riley, and euclidian geometry. Each of the first six songs on Euclid were initially structured using euclidian geometry, an idea which Smith explored while attending a class at the San Francisco Conservatory.”
Limited Edition of 100 copies.
Mono No Aware is the first compilation to be released on PAN, curated unreleased ambient tracks from both new and existing PAN artists. Featuring Helm, TCF, Yves Tumor, M.E.S.H., Pan Daijing, ADR, Bill Kouligas and more.
“Mono No Aware”, ‘the pathos of things’, also translates as “an empathy toward things”, or “a sensitivity to ephemera”. A term for the awareness of impermanence, or the transience of things. A meditation on mortality and life’s transience, ephemerality heightens the appreciation of beauty and sensitivity to their passing. In investigating the passing of time, the boundaries between memory and hallucination become blurred; between fiction and reality. The movement of time transforms into an eternal present.
The album is mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at D&M, featuring photography by Molly Matalon and design by Bill Kouligas. A Limited Version of 100 copies will be released as a special art edition in collaboration with Mount Analog for Printed Matter’s LA Art Book Fair 2017 (spanning Feb 23-26). All copies arrive with photo print and hand-stamped vinyl, copies sold onsite are also hand-numbered and signed by artist. Limited pre-order release via Mount Analog shipping March 1.

L.A.-based Brazilian producer Jesse Pimenta a.k.a Dreams with a trio of tuffened club constructions for his own label, Private Selection Records. Up front, ‘Energy’ and ‘Twisted Karma’ bring a percussive pressure recalling work from Tessela, Randomer or The Zenker Brothers, but the B-side is a different beast altogether, twysting-a-belly with a grinding, mutant techno torque.
On Dither he gets down with a urgent, trippy sound primed for foggy, redlit basements – creeping up on ya with the tightly tucked and paranoid funk of Time For The Tumult, and a nastier electro rhythm named Parodist that sounds a bit like Beua Wanzer, whereas the flipside twists off two microtonal jack tracks in Spinebash and the acidic flutter of F.T.H.
World-renowned as one of experimental music’s most vital and impressionistic composers of the past few decades, William Basinski’s tape loop works have been especially influential, particularly on the historic series, The Disintegration Loops, where distorted, orchestral tape samples burrow deep into the listener’s psyche through meditative repetition. On his new album, A Shadow In Time, Basinski plunges deeper than ever for the plaintive, solitary eulogy to David Bowie, aptly titled “For David Robert Jones.” Conversely, the title track, “A Shadow In Time,” is a subtle, celestial escalation of melody and drone. The result is one of the most truly transcendent pieces of music he has ever committed to – or wrung from – tape.
