Dulgoon delivers a fantastic voyage by way of transportive electro-acoustic elements, roaming crypto-zoological sampling, and soaring synthesized melodies that all work to create a truly unique escapade. Burrowed systems of organ tones, colossal reptile grunts, washes of native twang, shapeshifting effects, sliding sonic tendrils of dangerous fauna, rowdy bird calls, heroic guitar trod, and interconnected tunnels of feedback are all mapped out for you to explore. Activate the artifact that is ‘Hydrorion Remnants’ to reveal a dense world of wild beasts and uncharted landscapes that only the most adventuresome dare to seek." - Grant Corum, Psychic Sounds Artwork by Calman Silkscreened by Grant Corum Mastered by Timothy Stollenwerk Co-release with Nonlocal Research
Maya Deren journeyed to Haiti to make a film of ritual dances, instead, she came to be accepted as a Voudoun initiate, whose devotees commune with the cosmic powers through invocation, offerings, song and dance of the Voudoun pantheon of deities, or Loa, whom are witnessed as being living gods and goddesses, actually taking possession of their devotees. Deren describes the relationship between magic, science and religion bringing a uniquely lyrical voice to her narrative. This paints a multi-textured, infinitely complex portrait of a spiritual tradition with roots stretching back to the very dawn of humanity. Joseph Campbell calls Divine Horsemen “the most illuminating introduction that has yet been rendered to the whole marvel of the Haitian mysteries as ‘facts of the mind.’” Included in this album are some of the first recordings ever made during religious ceremonies near Croix de Missions and Petionville featuring selections that serve as a soundtrack to the film she shot documenting Voodoo ceremonies and festivals conveying the incantatory power of the ritual drumming and singing. One can hear the sounds of nature while processions begin across the landscape further giving the effect of an audio memoir. For the first time in almost 40 years, this long out-of-print cult classic is now available in a limited edition featuring a beautiful screen print cover by Grant Corum, risograph insert with liner notes by Cherel Ito, original cover art by Teiji Ito and mastered for the first time by Timothy Stollenwerk.

LIMITED EDITION LP CAN BE ORDERD HERE: http://psychicsounds.bigcartel.com/product/white-gourd-magician-le-diable-12-lp "When crawling to the summit, I saw a person emerge from the mist. A disfigured man in a tattered robe drew two cards from his sleeve and laid them on the slab between us. 'The Magician' and 'The Devil' were pictured in a vibrant color illustration. As I stared intensely at the cards, the man shuffled over to a faded green jukebox between two ancient pillars. He made a selection and some music began. It had an eerie, hypnotic quality to it. Melodies cycled together in a warped assemblage of modes ranging from Anglo folk and basement jazz to some late night Pagan gospel set. Moments of ethereal beauty blended into nightmare tones and possessed invocations. It suggested a deep mystery and as I listened, the figures on the cards moved and staggered across the rocks. The mist enveloped me and turned violet. When I awoke, I was back at the base of the summit. Laying next to me were the cards and an LP album that was the music from the green jukebox. It was called 'Magician/Le Diable' by an artist named White Gourd. I have returned to it over and over again as I light various colored candles in my apartment and muse on the inherent strangeness at play, always and forever." - Carlos Gonzalez, Wasp Video Roadhouse - Written, played and performed by Suzanne Stone - Cover art design and printing by Grant Corum - Mastered by Timothy Stollenwerk PSR019
12" LP can be ordered here: http://psychicsounds.bigcartel.com/product/adele-h-civilization Adele H is the experimental recording project of Italian singer and songwriter Adele Pappalardo. Her debut album 'Civilization' is a stunning collection of original songs using just her voice and percussion to create powerful melodies and rhythms that feel primordial and instinctive blending soul, experimental, psychedelia and dream pop styles.
The final album of the Beguiling Isles Trilogy (Beguiling Isles / Effigy Mounds / Magic Mirror). "CORUM constructs a mind-melting psychopharmacological vision wherein rhythms and melodies ooze into and out of focus. He brings a psychedelic atmosphere, one not culled from a traditional sense, but of a deeply innate ability to transform a space sonically creating a more spiritual, or visceral affair. This year sees the release of Magic Mirror, a new solo collection that finishes out a loosely themed trilogy of solo records. The new LP is world music in the broadest sense of that term, incorporating drum rhythms from Africa, instrumentation from the Middle East, and very Western electronic elements. A welcome celebratory and hypnotic vibe, which will perfectly match the incantatory spirit of his work."—ROBERT HAM. PSR018

"The latest in the ever expanding Psychic Sounds collection of sonic treasures is from around the world in East Java, Indonesia documented by artist and musician Arrington de Dionyso (Malaikat dan Singa / Old Time Relijun) during his travels. It focuses on music that accompanied a festival of Pancak Silat, which is a form of kung fu that is part combat form and part dance performance practiced in Java for many centuries with an element of trance that is reinforced by the fast paced repetitive music. This raw recording features a gloriously vibrant din of fiery double-reeded wind instruments, fierce cries, jubilant flutes, and an explosive bass clarinet which all whirl endlessly atop a bed of a dense and dizzyingly assemblage of bells, cymbals, gongs that truly stirs up a visceral and wild concoction of traditional folk music and mutated free jazz. It's all acoustic, but it sounds so loud and incredibly intense. The root sounds of the percussion will definitely sound familiar to listeners of Gamelan music but this is somehow even more manic and spirited. This may be the first ever recording of a bass clarinet crossing frequencies with this particular style of kung-fu music and it's experimental nature succeeds in creating a wild and gorgeous wonderland of exciting images that makes you want to dance, and trance out simultaneously; powerful and exhilarating! Certainly recommended for fans of the raw street recordings of Sublime Frequencies, Nonesuch Explorer series, Ethnic Lyrichord, Indonesian Folkways, or perhaps newer east-meets-free jazz. Like all Psychic Sounds releases, the artwork is as breathtaking as the music, gorgeously packaged in a full color sleeve, screenprinted by Corum, and includes a fold out insert with inspired drawings and liner notes by Dionyso as well. Utterly fantastic!" - Karen for psychicsoundrecordingsblogspot.com 12" LP & Foldout of inspired drawings & liner notes PSR015
Following the exotica mixed electronic jazz form of Beguiling Isles, Effigy Mounds plays back like a hallucinatory cave field recording where snippets of tape were collaged to reveal the waves of a deep portal opening, sounds of bubbling ingestion of strange and luminous compounds, and the rhythmic pulse of spores landing in Earth's atmosphere by way of shooting stars. Less exotica and more experimental, Corum's latest document plays like a deep alternate soundtrack to the film Altered States in some forbidden South Pacific isle lodge. -AJ / psychicsoundrecordings.blogspot.com -Played and Recorded by Corum / Mastered by Timothy Stollenwerk Second part in Beguiling Isles trilogy (Beguiling Isles / Effigy Mounds / Magic Mirror) PSR014 released and distributed by Psychic Sounds www.psychicsounds.com
"Idaho Joe Windslow is the inventor of the gongtar (cello with gong resonator), singing bowl gamelan (which is played standing with a back brace of mannequin arm singing bowl holders), and the voxtar (amplified sympathetic string fixture excited by voice). He backs himself up with a collection of exotic drum machines from India and the Middle East. Using hypnosis and lyrics he aims to send the listener into altered states of consciousness." -The Lab, SF PSR011 www.psychicsounds.com
Featured track from Million Brazilian's "Wet Dry Jungala" album. Mastered by Timothy Stollenwerk Originally released as a limited edition vinyl by Psychic Sounds and Moon Glyph.
"Suzanne Stone as 'White Gourd' is US Pacific Northwest's hidden treasure. Known for her abrasive sax & voice in the esoteric jazz trio Million Brazilians, Stone approaches her unique solo performances as White Gourd from a very different angle often involving dreamy saxophone, neo-Nico vocals and haunting key textures as a ritual tapestry of tarot-influenced blessings. 'Hermit La Lune', her latest LP on Psychic Sounds, contains a very eerie spectral landscape from which sings spells of solitude and seasonal cycles over waves of bells, water animal wails, sword sharpening and etheric piano work seamlessly through this timeless witchy advancement. Highly Recommended!" -AJ, PSR MORE INFO AT: www.whitegourdsounds.blogspot.com PSR010
