EN/Jefre Cantu-Ledesma

In preparation for their Japan tour with Grouper in April 2012, En (Maxwell August Croy & James Devane) defined the genesis for 'Blood'. Upon returning home, ideas developed from their performances were fleshed out and a new organism birthed. Jefre Cantu-Ledesma was sent parts of the completed En track, which he used to create 'Blood Variations'.

Spyglass renders telescopic visions generously spread - a fire on mountainous lands - a blurred image of star and planet.  Side to side guitar shines on pieces of crystal.

The abandoned lodge emerges from the dark, wet woods. It is warm and light inside - carpeted halls and wood banisters welcome your step, draw you deeper past branching rooms. What mysteries, forgotten treasure, and danger await within these decrepit walls?

Live at the Bakken Museum of Electricity, Food Pyramid incants the freedom of Ash Ra Temple from the vertiginous crest of a great wave.  Their complimentary efforts echo and coalesce through the valleys below, waking forest life to a somnambulant rustle.

Justin Marc Lloyd

Natural patterns left me reaching for something bright. A dawn? A new beginning? Illuminated fingertips, mazes of brains… and finally, my center is cleared. Textures in seamless loops and wavering drones, broken beats and tone throbs, everything including the kitchen sink, and my own streams of consciousness. Amplified. Lo-fi garble and twitching circuits, damaged tape, and grand melody sneaking in and out. My deepest crevices are smoldering, as a mirror should, nailed to a burning tree… shattered before it ever served it's true purpose. Real-time composition and recording, born before i was. Spacial and alienating. I've treated it as such. There is a child inside of me, a portrayal of all that is experienced and learned, in 4 aspects: perception (a - your eyes>filter>image), sensibility (b - medium grounds for senses), and coming later: time and existence (c - year of the water dragon), new beginnings (d - dawn of the coming vision). If it can be trusted that this is glowing introspective, human measurements of time (62 minutes to be exact) dissipate into cosmic dust.

Christian Filardo

Mastermind behind cassette/multimedia label Holy Page. Christian dropped his Good Amount moniker earlier this year and took up his proper name, perhaps conceptual artists such as Filardo should present their compositions directly more often? In any case, 'Pieces' sees Filardo presenting us with a test of patience, an exercise in enthusiasm and endurance, Filardo explores the depths of his typically cavernous drones with a certain sense of technological seduction. Filardo's live performances have been highly organic and textural, we're excited to see where these approaches bring him in the near future.

Wheels Myth

Here is the internet debut from long-time My Idea of Fun contributor Josh Russo, here using the moniker "Wheels Myth". The CD-r  appropriately titled "EP" was handed to me at a show in Johnstown, PA back in May, the handmade cardboard case was designed exactly as the artwork is shown online, with the CD slid into the "fold" there in the center. Sonically, the 3-song, 25 minute recording suggests the overwhelming emotions of an empty dance-floor. Drones are greeted by familiar melodies, then woven into a long-form scroned out dance classic. Wheels Myth's EP was originally and still represented by Johnstown, Pennsylvania-Based Artist Collective My Idea of Fun.

Glaze Of Cathexis

Beyond the event horizon... beyond the border of the Unknown and Known... lies the Canyons of the Sonic Whirlpool. The bustling, dark confines of a Saigon cafe - the mind's images turn into floating waterways of fluid Engroovied Mandalas. Ceramic pots in a forlorn windowbay alcove above speak of high plains of Midnite Blue. Seizing the present moment in the shimmering light soars the Dream's Vision. Patterns of creation and decay echo across the ancient tiled floor, motes of dust sparkling... Chromium Lightning blazes like an inspired demigod's trident. Thoughts wheel in Hurricanes of Disorder, white horses flare on the seas in my mind... Waves of Moonlight shine... All becomes Sunflowers and Rainshowers in the primal gardens... call of the deepest Mekong beckons. Bright voices of light read from the Akashic records beyond all delusion, the Inner Shaman's Guide to Perception proclaims Don't Stand Down... in Saigon in mossy alleyways and thick, soupy canals amid the flurry of racing Xe Oms, like points of light, we find ourselves bathed in light on the Turbid, Shingle Beach.

Damaged Tape

There's no particular concept to this album, it's really just a set of psychedelic musings. Pretty much all of the music here spilled out rather effortlessly over the past few months. Making music for me never feels too much like work, but this one was even more fun and games. I think it helps that everything here is analog hardware (with the sole exception of the robotic voice on the first track), so I didn't have to endure any programming cyber-headaches. There's also more guitar present than on other Damaged Tape records - I honestly can't really play keyboard that well, but I can rock it funky on guitar. I've also included a few tracks with lead vocals, which is a first for Damaged Tape. If my music evolves, I'm happy, and I think this one has a somewhat different vibe from other sets I've done for the Damaged Tape project.

The Gateless Gate

I started the project, The Gateless Gate, to experiment with my interest in dark ambient, psych, Krautrock, and various other ambient, avant garde instrumental styles.
The first recording, "Xinjiang", is a concept album based on Central Asian themes, which each track being based on a place or person in that region.
