Latest Releases

Michael Dessen: Digibone Forest
CAT. #: ALP067
Digibone Forest carries the listener through an otherworldly soundscape created by Michael Dessen, a "slide-trombone virtuoso and computer musician of the highest order" (All About Jazz). Moving through a wide range of moods and spaces, the music is at once visceral, ethereal, playfully unpredictable and completely unclassifiable.

Noriko Kodama: Abyss
CAT. #: ALP069
Deep into the night before the twilight colors the sky, a song on the guitar quietly begins to glisten. Minimal, ambient, reminiscent even of lowercase, her solitary near silent folk music nestles up close and softly speaks to our varying moods.

Guitar is Dead: Guitar is Dead
CAT. #: ALP068
This album vents the musical aggression of three malcontent New Orleans musicians with blazing guitar solos, spiteful rants and ferocious riffs bridging the fed-up rage of punk and musical finesse of experimental jazz.

계수정sOo's collage: (John in the) Cage + Hazel
CAT. #: ASP004
A live performance of pieces by Soo Jung Kae and Nate Wooley recorded on October 21, 2018 at viaart gallery/Daedong Hotel on Jeju Island in South Korea.

Wormhole: Last Waltz
CAT. #: ALP066
Improvisation based on on a graphic score by Marcos Fernandes recorded live at Last Waltz in Tokyo.

The Argonauts: The Heat Is On
CAT. #: ASP003
A driving rocker that captures the explosive energy of the original foursome's stage performances.

The Argonauts: Melody
CAT. #: ASP002
A catchy, upbeat reggae song that rocks steady and invites you to skank and sing along.

Black Acid Arkestra: Sketches
CAT. #: ALP065
Textures such as effected trumpet, blistering sax solos, virtuosic bass lines, prog-rock guitar licks, classic rhodes keys and digital sampling all come together to create an other-worldly sound, a concise presentation of the weirder sides of jazz, simultaneously an homage to the past and a step into the future.

The Argonauts: Proxima b
CAT. #: ALP064
An EP featuring 3 spontaneous compositions that capture the more adventurous side of The Argonauts' live perforemances which often feature extended improvisational excursions into prog and space rock.

The Argonauts: Here Come The Argonauts!
CAT. #: ALP063
Surf, dub and psychedelic rock provide the springboard for The Argonauts' sometimes bluesy, sometimes funky but always spontaneous and adventurous post rock blend.

Quibble: Quibble
CAT. #: ALP062
Quibble displays their aggressive brand of electronic improvisation in these recordings unearthed from the archives.
