3 - FREAK HEAT WAVES - ZAP THE PLANET - (LP) 
TELEPHONE EXPLOSION


Their home studios continuously relocated, advanced and diversified. New instruments started to appear and new trajectories were explored. The studio process became more dynamic, involving many overdubs, avant-garde recording techniques, experimental sound design and orchestrations that utilized legendary effects, drum machines and synths. Tireless curiosity fueled the duo as they merged their original sound with new discoveries and seemingly disparate influences. With their latest work, Zap The Planet, the Freaks find themselves splitting coasts in Montreal and Victoria, distanced by geography and time, connecting via serial transmission tethered to a lone ethernet terminal. Extenuating logistics can unexpectedly prompt innovation.No Freak Heat Waves record has followed a singular path and no two are alike. Each album is an evolution in musical direction, songwriting and conceptualization. With Zap the Planet, (their second album on Telephone Explosion,) the duo have manifested more of their intrinsically unique vision and become more pronounced in their unhinged artistic process. The follow up to 2017s Beyond XXXL finds the Freaks taking a fearless, inventive leap to create the greatest departure from their previous work. There are no fads here, no accidents either. Freak Heat Waves give us a record full of lo-fi digital grit and early MIDI instrumentation. Dirty samples crackle as they skate over immense analog synths. Psychotropic rhythms plant roots and the timeless, signature Freak Heat Waves vocals serve as guides throughout the journey. Through it all the Freaks find themselves zapped!

TELEPHONE EXPLOSION


The 3rd album in the ongoing Telephone Explosion X Bruce Haack series (previous releases include "Haackula" & "The Electric Lucifer Book II"). Limited to 1,000 copies.

5 - HAACK, BRUCE - PRESERVATION TAPES - (LP)

In 2016, after reissuing two Bruce Haack albums, Haackula and Electric Lucifer Book II, Telephone Explosion began speaking with Ted Pandel (Bruces lifelong friend and business partner) about working on the 1970 masterpiece The Electric Lucifer. It turned out there was another matter that he wanted to discuss: finding a final resting place for the Bruce Haack archive.

6 - HARDWARE, SCOTT - ENGEL - (LP) 
TELEPHONE EXPLOSION


Torontos Scott Hardware will be releasing Engel, his second full-length album, and first on Telephone Explosion Records. It will mark the end of a three-year process of writing, recording and letting down his guard (for better or worse.)His last album, 2016s Mutate, Repeat, Infinity, was the culmination of a years-long obsession with the HIV/AIDS crisis and how it was shaped by capitalism. Hardwares early years after coming out were shaped by the courage of people close to him who were dealing with difficult diagnoses."Looking at these situations from a macro/societal lens must have been the only way I could process and share those years of my life and my loved ones lives with an audience" Hardware recalls. "From a writing and production standpoint, I was trying to re-imagine various eras of dance music and sound as urgent and vital as they would have in their heyday of the 80s and 90s."

7 - MARIANGELA - MARIANGELA - (LP) 
TELEPHONE EXPLOSION


In the early 1970s, Mariangela Celeste signed to a major label at 13, she would go on to record her self-titled album with rising European superstar Vangelis. Though tragically overlooked upon its release, Mariangela is a gem of early electronic pop with sparkling synths, drums machines, and lush arrangements propelling the songs of an unapologetically strong-willed Adolescent.

8 - NEW FRIES - IS THE IDEA OF US - (LP) 
TELEPHONE EXPLOSION


New Fries has never been interested in being a band. What we mean is a spirit of abandoning ideas of what songs should be, how they should be performed, and by whom. Weve never been interested in the tradition of songwriting-though were interested in musical elements like repetition, space, and dynamics. We have wanted our music to make people dance but have also wanted to produce the feeling of that being taken away from a room. We often work around these sorts of energy transfers (whether or not we name them this way). This space to make music in has felt wild and free. We have also contradicted ourselves. We are also always changing. In 2018 Ryan Carley (synthesizer) left the band and we found ourselves at our first juncture to restructure and re-evaluate New Fries. This is such a classic boring story, we know. But immediately we knew that as a three piece (the bands original formation) we had to turn to something new and open-the way some describe "beginners mind". Anni grabbed bass (which was new to her), Tim grabbed guitar and a sampler as a new juggling routine, and Jenny reduced her drum kit to three pieces. We wanted to create a structure that allowed us to be curious about being in transition.Much of this record sounds and reflects on this in-between. Its anxious in its repetitions and unsure of genre. It rejects a singular character or emotion and attempts to instead act as a container for many. Annis lyrics state this directly: "it lacks a mood, it lacks definition" / "curiosity beyond expectation". Her lyrics describe the spaces, objects, people, and situations that embody an in-between-her grandfather who worked as medium, the ecology of the foreshore, Mount Tamboras eruption in 1816 that produced the Year Without a Summer, and mesh (the fabric). The result is a collage of 6 songs and many otherwise quick ideas.

9 - PANTAYO - PANTAYO - (LP) 
TELEPHONE EXPLOSION


Pantayo explores whats possible for contemporary kulintang music with the atonal blend of kulintang ensemble instruments with vocals and electronic production. The album features eight diverse songs speaking to Pantayos musical influences as queer diasporic Filipinas. Produced by Yamantaka // Sonic Titans alaska B, Pantayo was written and recorded from 2016-2019 in Toronto.Pantayo is an audio diary of how the ensemble has grown together as writers and performers. The songwriting process started with members workshopping and performing traditional kulintang pieces from the Southern Philippines, often instrument-switching on the kulintang, agongs, sarunays, gandingan, bandir, and dabak. Adapting kick drums and synths to the modal tuning of the gongs further expanded Pantayos ability to incorporate modern musical expressions such as punk and R&B. "If you listen to the recordings of our rehearsals and songwriting sessions, you can hear us deconstructing the kulintang parts section-by-section and practicing our songs in different styles" says keyboardist and vocalist Eirene Cloma. "You can also hear how close weve gotten and how our creative workflow strengthened over the years."Grounded in the interpretation of kulintang music, Pantayo can be a vehicle for discussions around diasporic Filipino identity. All five members have different experiences of settling in Canada and with that comes their relationships with music. Kat Estacio, co-founder of Pantayo, says "One way that we can make this world feel like home for folks like us is to mix the kulintang music that we learned with different sounds and song structures that feel familiar to us."
