IRMA 505204-2 CD $13.00
Jetting out from a Tijuana sunset, suave Londoners Ralph "Chops" Lamb and "Golden" Andy Ross of THE EASY ACCESS ORCHESTRA will mesmerise you with their subtle blend of herbs and spices, silky songs and mellow moments. A luxurious aural pleasurama of chicks that chirp in a groovy whole-tone mode and a fine brandy in a deep velvet London club somewhere in 1966, it's like BURT BACHARACH, LALO SCHIFRIN and HERB ALPERT, having decided that their previous works were just too frantic, lobbing a crateful of valium into their voluptuous vibe. The guys have been busy over the past few years, with work for TV and the movies, and with collaborations with achingly cool London groovers THE HERBALIZER and the legendary neo-imaginary band THE BIG CHEESE ALL-STARS, have already staked their claim in the pantheon of the terminally groovy. Italian import. (IRMA)

EEYORE CASTE TRAITOR
"Inter-dimensional Cooperation and a Kiss to You"
EERIEECTID 01-1 LP $8.00
Eeyore's first album finds the beastie plying his lo-fi, down-home alien noise in a vastly expanded universe of vinyl. Sing-songy ditties, cut-up collage wackyness, homemade instruments, noisy bashing, 4-walls-of-a-bedroom aesthetics, and definitely not of this earth. Bright, colorful cover with some added hand painting that makes each unique. (EERIE MATERIALS)
EEYORE PRAYER TOOL / SOCKEYE
EERIE 4-7 7" $4.00

"Anthology of Infection"
EM 0001-2 CD $8.90
Orchestral madness, electric mayhem and Organ Grinderesque instrumentals abound. What Crispin Glover would be doing if he had a musical bone in his body. Contains several soundtrack cuts from various animated and underground film features from '92 to '97 by "the man who put the sick in music and the odd in audio." Stark sickening cover graphics add to the overall dis-ease of this release. Think Edward Gorey, Tim Burton, and Chas Addams as performed by a 1970s-vintage Danny Elfman. (EBOLA MUSIC)
"The Room isn't Big Enough"
OA/NA 001-1 LP $8.40
The creation of five veteran Columbus OH scenesters, Don Howland, Jim Shepard, Ron House, Tommy Jay and Mike Rep gathering together for a handful of nights at Tommy's barn/studio. These 13 songs reflect the blues, folk, and punk roots/heritage of all involved. (OLD AGE/NO AGE)

"rMensch-eTanatologie + 1"
RN 8-1 2xLP $13.50
The second (and third!) LP from these cutting-edge industrial half-men-half machines from Bratislava in the Slovak Republic, full of huge noisescapes crackling with feedback and distortion while eerily conjuring almost Gothic textures, all with a spooky impersonality.

"Klonieren des Machinen Lärms"
RN 4-1 LP $10.75
Quiet, extreme low-frequency sound sculptures from Slovakia, with a depth seldom heard. Limited edition of only 412, pressed on extra-heavy audiophile vinyl. (RECALCITRANT NOISE)
