1 - ABATE, MAURIZIO - THE MAADI SESSIONS - (LP) 
BACKWARDS


"During my first visit in the Maadi district in Cairo, Egypt, I was especially struck by the sounds, so I recorded some of them over my following stay, and I tried to mix them with my electric guitar, a sort of conversation between the inner world and the outside one. During the sessions in my friend Alberto's house, I also experimented new techniques and effects on the guitar, approaching the instrument in a broader sense. The sessions originated the pieces on this record, which also feature a collaboration with Alberto Boccardi on one track, named after his house and headquarters of Canale Undici." ~Maurizio Abate.

9 - COOPER, MIKE - DISTANT SONGS OF MADMEN - (LP) 
BACKWARDS


'Distant Songs Of Madmen' was recorded live in Palermo and was Mike Cooper's solo set in a concert organised by Lelio Gianetti and Curva Minore which included his trio Truth In The Abstract Blues and Eugene Chadbourne. The set was free improvisation; some cover versions of folk and pop songs and some of his own songs. The title of the record and some of the improvised pieces were taken from Sam Shepard's writing. Available in a beautiful designed cover with an exclusive amazing artwork made by Italian artist Carla Indipendente. Mastered for vinyl by Brian Pyle (Ensemble Economique).

10 - COOPER, MIKE - LIGHT ON A WALL - (LP) 
BACKWARDS


400 copies on black vinyl. Recorded live on Radio Lebanon in Beirut. Cooper plays electric lap steel and sings several of his 'Spirit Songs' - a body of vocal works that he has been presenting live over the past few years. These 'songs' are constructed by chopping up - (William Burroughs /Brion Gysin/Tom Phillips style) - 'Gravity's Rainbow' and 'V' - two novels by Thomas Pynchon. No chords, melodies or harmonic patterns for each song are planned prior to them being performed. Both accompaniment and the songs melody are improvised during each performance rendering each performance unique. There are other recorded versions of these pieces which, by the very nature of this approach to presentation, are completely different. This set differs radically from other versions also because it was recorded using an electric Vietnamese lap steel guitar (as apposed to his usual electro-acoustic resonator guitar) heavily processed through a vintage Kaos Pad and Zoom Sampletrack looper. The guitar has built in, on board, distortion, wah-wah and tremolo. The result is a more dense and 'heavy metal' sound than is usually associated with Cooper's music. All the songs and improvisations are original apart from the last track Masters At War - a version of an anti war song from the sixties written by a master of the genre but here presented as a thundering call to throw light on a wall.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Industrial Hazard 02. Light On A Wall 03. Year Of The Decay 04. A Bleeding Edge 05. Much-a-fire Across Europe 06. Humid Morning 07. Nothing To Gain/everything To Lose 08. Masters At War

12 - DEAD GUM - META - (LP) 
BACKWARDS


'Meta', Dead Gum's sophomore studio album, constituted a challenge for its maker. While 'Gainer' -its predecessor- hollered for awareness and singularity, this one indulges into multi-layered, ambiguous narratives tracing an impossible duality. With abiding influences that distance him from conspicuous contemporary norms, Panagiotis Spoulos creates a nocturnal, desolate sound collage, invoking a meta-purpose for a/the current status quo. The public character of the endeavour is almost jostled by the privateness of the overall statement; the invitation thus corresponds to a peek into a baffled brain and a rove around gradual levels of muffled alarm calls and grimy smells. 'Meta' is no post-something. 'Meta' merely stands half foot ahead of absolute nothingness, the true end of it all. Limited to 200 copies on black vinyl.

16 - FATHER MURPHY - LAMENTATIONS (10") - (EP) 
BACKWARDS


The release of 'Lamentations', presented on 10-inch vinyl, completes Father Murphy's 2015 'Trilogy Of The Cross'. Inspired by a not exactly orthodox reading of the Book of Jeremiah and by the tradition of the Holy Week Lamentations, the Italian duo recorded two long compositions that feel like classic Father Murphy, but at ther same time reveal a substantial enrichment of the band's usually spare sonic palette. For this project core members Rev. Murphy and Chiara Lee teamed up with producer Fabrizio Modonese Palumbo (Larsen).

20 - LAY LLAMAS - MALOPHOROS - (7") 
BACKWARDS


This gold coloured single contains two tracks. 'Malophoros' was composed together with the shaman singer Alfio Antico, former collaborator of Fabrizio De Andre, Tullio de Piscopo and Vinicio Capossela, on frame drum and voice. The piece sounds like an improbable mixture between the Nuova Compagnia Di Canto Popolare and the Master Musicians Of Bukkake! The text, written by Antico, is recited in Sicilian dialect and is inspired by the Sanctuary from the 5th century B.C. dedicated to the goddess Demeter whose ruins are located in the Archaeological Park of Selinunte (Sicily). The Sanctuary was a sacred place for the ancient Greek colonists in Sicily and their rituals and sacrifices were held there in order to ingratiate themselves with the divinity. On the B side the track 'Mondi Di Pietra' reminds of Franco Battiato's 'Pollution/Sulle Corde Di Aries' period. The text, in Italian, provides a mythological and esoteric vision of the Mediterranean world understood as a passage zone and cradle of ancient cultures. The mastering was curated by the English musician and producer Sonic Boom (Spacemen 3, Spectrum, Panda Bear, MGMT) at the New Atlantis Studio. The artwork is made by the Catalan artist Daniel Puiggros. Limited to 500 copies.

25 - MY CAT IS AN ALIEN - THE DANCE OF ONEIRISM (2LP+BOOK) - (LP) 
BACKWARDS


From the extended foreword insert by David Keenan: ""What are we to make of My Cat Is An Alien, the duo of the brothers Roberto and Maurizio Opalio, titling this new extended sound work The Dance Of Oneirism? [...] None of the tracks have titles; instead we feel our way by number, by movement. Our co-ordinates are fixed, or more properly suggested, by the listing of instruments. Self-made double-bodied string instrument, handmade pocket harp, pedal effects, wordless vocalizations, modified analog drum machine, mini-keyboard, alientronics. But even here nothing is straightforward; everything is invented, shrunken, self-built, inchoate: alien-ated. The session was recorded - instantly composed - in MCIAAs "Alien Zone", situated in the Western Alps, and it sounds it. The central fact of MCIAAs music has always been space but they have never sounded quite so far away, so removed. [...] The music is extremely sensual. The rhythms have a contrary cold/organic quality to them, the feel of the pulse as the breath is held, but soon even that dies down and we are left with an extended, timeless moment, the space between one breath and the next. Occasionally there is the sound of strings, strange steel resonances that populate the music like ghosts, the ghosts of Roscoe Holcombs high, lonesome sound, of Dock Boggs and the sanctified steel of Washington Phillips. Ash Ra Tempel met Timothy Leary in the Alps [...] The transmissions are fuzzy up here and at points it makes for a music of almost terrifying quiet. It is minimal, sure, but MCIAA are not so much interested in repetition as in eternal expansion. [...] The Dance Of Oneirism is a music of unknowing, a dance with a phantom, the letting go of a dream. It is MCIAAs greatest long form work. It has tributaries that run deep into the past, ghost channels that facilitate two-way travel, even as its destination, in the words of the late Conrad Schnitzler, is determinedly future, future, future."" - David KeenanAvailable in a lavish edition: includes a photographic Art Book by Roberto Opalio. Silkscreened image by the artist on Side D.

26 - PIOULARD, BENOIT - SEIZE - (7") 
BACKWARDS


The compositions 'Seize' and 'Marre' are based on lyrics and recordings that Benoit Pioulard created at the age of 16, in the years 2000-2001. Another 16 years on, he has revisited those early efforts through the eyes and ears of his adult self, having spent that time sculpting a creative identity across five albums for Kranky and numerous collaborations with the likes of Rafael Anton Irisarri and Kyle Bobby Dunn. The songs are a conflation of past and present, and an attempt at creating some sense of continuity over the course of one life. Pressed in a limited run of 300, all copies are signed by the artist and include a free postcard.

28 - SILENT CARNIVAL - SOMEWHERE - (LP) 
BACKWARDS


'Somewhere' is the third album from Silent Carnival, the sonic creature that Marco Giambrone raised since 2012. Production, recordings and mixing was managed by Giambrone himself. Recorded between January and February 2018 in the home-studio based in Cammarata (Sicily), 'Somewhere' confirms band members and constant collaborators Alfonso De Marco, Caterina Fede and Andrea Serrapiglio adding new musicians like Stefano De Ponti, Luca Andriolo and Luca Serrapiglio. This is an album about visions, dreams and premonitions with many different vibes, widening the colour palette than in the past. Less drones and more acoustic instruments to dress a songwriting free from fences of music genre. A changing sound, like the "Calvary" procession that combines the Sicilian Easter's lamentations with the pagan vibes of unknown worlds. The confessions without absolution of "Innocence" and the desert in the backyard of "Somewhere" only confirm the intimate and at the same time merciless attitude of this album. Limited to 200 copies on black vinyl.
