1 - AUN - ALPHA HEAVEN - (LP) 
DENOVALI


Walking the line between, romantic, sinister, uplifting and melancholic hazy dreams of mistuned 70s sci-fi TV, Alpha Heaven is AUNs most living and breathing recording to date. Mostly recorded in one take with little editing, apart from some overdubbed vocals, lounge organ and creaky acoustic piano parts. The space echoed, sometimes wobbly tape saturated tracks, evoke past and future, using a collection of electric pianos, organ, bass pedals and tapes, augmenting AUNs otherworldly signature guitar, voice and electronics. Further merging their use of sometimes temperamental vintage analog, with more contemporary electronic equipment and techniques, the concise and focused tracks, find the duo at their most luminous and earthly, while pursuing their ongoing exploration of time, space and unknown dimensions. For fans of : Sonic Youth, Cocteau Twins, Can, My Bloody Valentine, Boards Of Canada, Eno, Ennio Morricone. Vinyl: thick sleeve, 180g vinyl, free download code.

3 - AUN - FULL CIRCLE (10") - (EP) 
DENOVALI


The follow up EP of AUN's 2011 masterpiece album Phantom Ghost. The title and track names of this new AUN three track EP, contain some clues as to the frame of mind, and maybe some hints of the influences of its creators. As fans have now come to expect, 'Full Circle' is again a different sonic adventure, but still unmistakably AUN stamped. On the A side we find the fittingly titled 'Return to Jupiter Jazz, a Dumais solo piece, while the B side is a more joint affair, with the slow melancholic guitar and keyboard interplay of 'Floodland' and a first track featuring AUN in trio formation, with Frdric Arbour adding some synth and guitar work to the lush and sprawling 'Family Man', a track which also finds some subtle lead guitar work by family friend Eric Quach of THISQUIETARMY fame.

4 - AUN - MOTORSLEEP - (CD) 
ALIEN 8


AUN is the ambient doom project of Montreal's Martin Dumais. who describes his take on outsider metal meets shoegaze as 'blight metal'. He has been a crucial contributor to the Montreal music scene for years and has recently reinvented himself with some of his deepest and most contemplative work to date under the AUN moniker. Elements of Aun's sound can be traced to the classic period of ambient music marked by the likes of Cluster & Eno as well as to contemporary players such as Tim Hecker. On "Motorsleep" the intensity of the drone gently climaxes to the point where ambience gives way to power and grandeur. It is here that the influence of early industrial music is revealed and trace elements of bands such as the Swans lie just beneath the surface. "Motorsleep" is the result of the better part of a year's work spent shaping and solidifying the body of compositions that make up the recording. There is a strong sense of structure, continuity and flow that breathes throughout the long player. The release is broken down into seven movements all of them blending into one another almost seamlessly. The intensity slowly picks up over the course of the first few movements and reaches full power during the third and fourth pieces. Here the sound is rather dense and saturated with grainy ambient noise that slowly subsides and eventually gives way to a series of closing movements that recall the likes of Fennesz or a more menacing William Basinski. In a live situation AUN crafts his sound through guitar and a bevy of effects, offering a far more engaging visual experience than your average laptop based performance. TRACKLISTING: 01. MOTORLEEP 02. PROTECTION 03. ERZOT 04. WITH BOWS BENT 05. UNWORLDS 06. TONGUELESS VIGILS 07. NEIGES 08. THEN SPRING

5 - AUN - PHANTOM GHOST - (CD) 
DENOVALI


New full length of this groundbreaking canadian duo! AUNs previous travels took the duo to space, hell and back. Now home to tackle more earthly concerns Phantom Ghost shows AUN at its most complex and determined, but also at its most accessible, while still quite adept to their use of extreme tones. Previous outings heralded as masterpieces of ambient and heavy psychedelic strains, Phantom Ghost finds AUNs considerable stylistic palette, augmented again. Fractured voice and locked dry, immovable, hypnotic rhythms are ethereal and experimental qualities, now find themselves magnified by a sound edging on indie-noise-rock, while also delving deeper into their penchant for pristine and shattered electronics. Drenched in celestial gazy-prog sheen, fuelled by blurry acid drenched dreams, Phantom Ghost is AUN at its most otherworldly, but also most grounded and terrestrial. The Phantom and Ghost in focus here, could easily be of the supernatural variety, but are more the result of complex sound wave apparitions during the recording process. Very human in its essence and execution, but also increasingly beautifully machine driven, Phantom Ghost is a wide new door opened by the constantly mutating AUN. For fans of : Sonic Youth, Cocteau Twins, Zoviet France, Troum, Can, Cabaret Voltaire, My Bloody Valentine, Popol Vuh, Chris and Cosey, Boards Of Canada, Eno, Ennio Morricone.

7 - AUN - VII - (LP) 
DENOVALI


For the first time on vinyl + limited to 500 copies180g + thick gatefold sleeves. Auns music, generally shifts between dreamy lulling harmonic distortion, to sheer gut wrenching ultra downtuned avant black dirge, Aun's "VII" is of the latter. Of strong melodic and compositional sense, impossibly detuned guitars and electric power surges, soar through deep space and into black holes. While demented acid fueled fidles torments the high ends, ghostly cow-boy melodies and industrial strength psychedelia, are time kept by Away of metal legends: Voivod. Playing an uncharacteristic strain of jazzy, motorik and tribal rhythms, Away traps the surreal electrocution state of "VII" into a powerful otherwordly statement.
