Hare Akedod

 

"Timelash is the freshly erupted synthesizer & SFX duet of Embassador Dulgoon (Nonlocal Research) and Corum (Million Brazilians). Together they reveal new sound forms by playing with primeval motifs contrasted sharply against unfolding futuristic developments. The result is a simultaneous listening experience of ancient and alien settings told through their unique rhythm of language by mood-driven atmospheres, exotic tones, and electrifying sci-fi Cumbia jolt."

'A MORPHOLOGY OF WONDERS'

Limited Edition x2 LP & Poster

OUT NOW IN EUROPE / Preorder U.S. for Feb.22 release

Timelash is the evolution of Embassador Dulgoon’s cryptozoological sci-fi opus ‘Hydrorion Remnants’ converging with Corum’s surreal sonic mapping as ‘Beguiling Isles’. The combined cinematic vision jettisons listeners through a psychedelic wormhole far beyond the usual perception of known audio latitude.  

 

Aguirre has gone all out to inject this tribal dino DNA double slab of wax presented as twelve expansive and mesmerizing tracks of historical mutations linking early communication developments with speculative astrobiological impressions heard as mysterious & riveting melodies that wash over dizzying percussive styles and suspenseful ambience. 

 

A variety of unexampled sounds take shape throughout as tectonic tablature, reptilian choral movements, bubbling bioluminescence, tube calls, orogenic bells, crustacean chatter, lost continent scales, high plains drifting riffs, and primordial soup lapping splashes revealing to listeners a living mural that is ’A Morphology of Wonders'. 

 

The conjuring of cratonic creature harmonics resonate wildly from this interdimensional duet, emerging as Neopangaea music of now

 

                                        - Zakira Luna, Psychic Sounds Research 

Notes:

- Comes with LARGE poster

- Edition of 300

- Mastered by Caleb Mulkerin

- All Music by Dulgoon & Corum

PSYCHIC SOUNDS ENSEMBLE  

'Sonic Fermentations' 

12" LP

"The moon is out and it’s time for experiments in the Pacific Northwest. Enter the abode of Smegma Laboratories, dwelling of Ju Suk Reet Meate & Oblivia (The Tenses) whom are active in Los Angeles Free Music Society (LAFMS) notable collaborators with Merzbow, Wolf Eyes, John Wiese and infamous rock critic Richard Meltzer. It’s late in the evening and they have invited fellow Smegmateer David Morgan along with synthesized sculptors Brenna Murphy & Birch Cooper of MSHR, and psychedelic shape-shifters Corum & Suzanne Stone of Million Brazilians. All have arrived to share conversation in a new potent brew of Sonic Fermentations about to be set into motion.

'Batches 1 & 2' are too mutagenic for any container, a deep drank of sci-fi exotica concoction with psychotropic effects churned by a monstrous kalimba, canned laughter, radio broadcast fritz, eerie lap steel, double reed riff, all torched in a broth of stretching electrical beams. Suspense arrives by waiting for these themes to disintegrate and dissolve steering into unrecognizable forms. Once that happens, allure clashes with grotesque, contours between exhilaration and wailing dissolve, and the music becomes a current of unified instinct by this Psychic Sounds Ensemble. Sip it or shoot it, either way will result in stimulating both head and visceral."- Karen K, psychicsounds.com  

 

MILLION BRAZILIANS 

'Strange Oasis' 

digital / CD 

"In 1925, Colonel Percy Harrison Fawcett disappeared in the indescribable jungles of Brazil during an expedition to find the lost city of Z. The city not only represented a sort of El Dorado, but also a state of consciousness in which the traveler and the jungle became a single being. Fawcett describes this ideal moment as the appearance of an inverted oasis; a deserted space in-between lush vegetation where one cannot longer distinguish one plant from the other, water from land or bugs from birds. All of them form a unified harmonic tissue of organic matter.

Strange Oasis by Million Brazilians is in sound what Fawcett dreamed to find. Loaded with layers of tribal percussion, far-out atmospheres and exotic melodies, this record achieves to gather lush and mystery in a tangible fabric of sound. Flutes pass as birds, taps as humid drops, melodies as organic currents. A ritual happening far away and within simultaneously. As the music crowds round us, the sounds take on animal and vegetal flesh to form a strange oasis in the exact middle of the inner jungle. - Nonlocal Research"

 

MILLION BRAZILIANS 

'Urban Fossickated Octave' 

12" LP 

"Beautiful new LP (the seventh, I believe), from this wonderfully abstract outfit, who were birthed in the shadow of Smegma (Portland, OR), but have since relocated to Maine. 

  The foundational members of the band are Grant Corum (keyboards, vocals, tin whistle, vocals) and Suzanne Stone (alto sax, khene, vocals). For this album, recorded by Big Blood’s Caleb Mulkerin, they are joined by Caleb himself (tape loops & treatments) and Tom Kovacevic (piano & synth), both of whom played together back in Cerberus Shoals. The quartet is hot. Even when it’s a trio. 

  The music has a blocked-out and dreamy quality, with jazzoid touches and perhaps less of an ethnographic quality than some of the band’s work. But the music also exists in large chunks, which are moved around in a way that almost recalls (strategically, if not sonically) groups like Colorado’s Mnemonists/Biota collective. There’s a heavy and reflective quality to all the sounds generated and how they are shaped.

  The album takes its title from the work of the late visionary artist, Paul Laffoley, from whom the band learned many lessons, and for whom the music stands as a sort of threnody. And the sounds here seem to inhabit some of the same psychic space as Laffoley’s work — creating panels of aural architecture with mandalic balance and flow.

  Million Brazilians’ music has lots of depth and a shifting focus that makes it hard to identify as any particular brand of music. But as Duke Ellington so elegantly put it, “If it sounds good, it is good.” And Urban Fossickated Octave sounds more than good. Take it from the Duke. And then some." -Byron Coley, 2019

Mummy Dust Trippers 'Perfect Prey'

Embassador Dulgoon 'Hydrorion Remnants'

MDT_frontcover_photo.jpg

Please welcome the fully doused duet of alchemized instrument creator, Idaho Joe Winslow and Corum, the melted maestro of absorbent atmospherics.

‘Perfect Prey’ presents six new songs from the freshly squeezed cacti-crypt that is the Mummy Dust Trippers' domain.  Inhale with extreme caution…

Maya Deren 'Divine Horsemen

Maya Deren journeyed to Haiti to make a film of ritual dances, instead, she came to be accepted as a Voudoun initiate.  This album is a soundtrack to the film she shot documenting Voodoo ceremonies and festivals conveying the incantatory power of the ritual drumming and singing. One can hear the sounds of nature while processions begin across the landscape further giving the effect of an audio memoir.

"Embassador Dulgoon is known for his intrepid contributions for the world-traversing experimental science ensemble Nonlocal Society, however the eccentric Chilean multi-instrumentalist points us in a very different direction for his most recent revelation entitled ‘Hydrorion Remnants’. Dulgoon delivers a fantastic voyage by way of transportive electro-acoustic elements, roaming crypto-zoological sampling, and soaring synthesized melodies that all work to create a truly unique escapade. Activate the artifact that is ‘Hydrorion Remnants’ to reveal a dense world of wild beasts and uncharted landscapes that only the most adventuresome dare to seek."  - Grant Corum for Psychic Sounds

White Gourd 'Magician le Diable' 

"Eerie, hypnotic .... Melodies cycled together in a warped assemblage of modes ranging from Anglo folk and basement jazz to some late night Pagan gospel set. Moments of ethereal beauty blended into nightmare tones and possessed invocations." 
- Carlos Gonzalez, Russian Tsarlag
