DMPH Oakland/Sacramento 7"
Listen to
Weird-021 DMPH - Oakland/Sacramento 7

DMPH is a new Sacramento-Oakland free improv trio consisting of Chad Stockdale (tenor sax), Kevin Corcoran (drums/percussion) and Derek Monypeny (guitar). This record finds them starting from intuitive scatter/splatter into a deep, dense windtunnel on Side A (Oakland), while on Side B (Sacramento) a similarly conversational beginning leads to a highly electricified freakout squall that might put some heads in mind of Last Exit. Clearly, these guys have done their homework. Derek plays guitar in the magnificent bay area group Oaxacan and Kevin has recorded with such luminaries as Tetuzi Akiyama and Christian Kiefer. Chad has previously appeared on records with Kevin and is one half of the free jazz duo Klondike & York.

Limited to 200 copies on black vinyl.

Weird-LBR Living Breathing Music - Happiness Is Fabulous CD-R CD-R

What would the soil say? A fair speculation from the land's oldest apostle..."God made the Earth and the Earth was round and the Earth stood still in it's roundness... thus gave rise to 'the color green'... the amorphic quality of this color sprang life ... the first sounds involved gurggling 'Cro-magnon' hemorages ... the rest is adequate history ... hamburgers hotdogs hermaphrodites haunted house huge hard hair ... this is my recollection, I am soil!" A true testament of a northern California freak-out unfurled for the rest of the world ... a live non-stop excavation of classic Impulse! ether fused a la' Cro-Magnon(artists alone decide ...) with a utilitarian nod to "New Weird-ness" and Finnish-psych-spooge... recorded in Davis, CA "Live in Studio A" Sept. 2004 ... 4 colors, 500 copies, collaborative artwork... why does acid cost so much? Definitely for fans of Avarus and No Neck Blues Band. Features members of Klondike & York, Antennas Erupt, My Whole Hand Was Wet, Tally Band, and Black Bottles.

Antennas Erupt S/T 7"
Sold Out!
Weird-AE Antennas Erupt - S/T 7

The first 7" (full length vinyl due out on S-S Records) from Sacramento's finest utopian non-jazz band, Antennas Erupt. Their spectral sound of yore hovers somewhere between what's available and what's not. Past gestures giving way to new compositional non-jazz explorations. I got stoned one night and decided them as Charles Ives conducting the Portsmouth Sinfonia interpretting the better part of the ESP/Actuel catalogue, Mingus meltdowns, Ascension, solo Dolphy, and Messengers fluidity. They've created something wholly unique and beautiful and groovy. Saxes, cello, and drums combine to make Magical Energy Fields of love, joy, and vigor!

200 copies on clear vinyl.

Listen to
Weird-003 Kevin & Chad - Untitled 7

This is the high and mighty speaker-shredding first from the duo of Chad Stockdale (Klondike and York, Living Breathing Music, Freebasers, DMPH) and Kevin Corcoran (Antennas Erupt, Get Get Go). The idea behind this album was to make a hardcore record but through free jazz idioms. I played my tenor through a rat pedal and Kevin got in touch with his inner hardcore monster for the drums. Chris Woodhouse recorded for maximum potency. This is a seven-inch of loud whirlwind sudden blasts of howling, house-flattening, molten meltdown .
“I’m very happy with this record. It came out just like I wanted.” — Chad Stockdale

Fantastic see-through cover art

Corcoran, Kevin Haptic Music c40 Tape
Listen to
WEIRD-069 Corcoran, Kevin - Haptic Music c40 Tape

 

Kevin Corcoran's official discography spotlights the wide range of his drumming repertoire -- witness the arty-free jazz punk stylings of Antennas Erupt! (S-S Records), the bombastic blasts on his various Weird Forest 7"s, the more subdued percussion on his Americana-cum-improv trio with Christian Kiefer and Tetuzi Akiyama (Digitalis) and most recently, the incredibly tight avant-rock drum beats featured with Garrincha & the Stolen Elk (Stunned). But left to his own devices, Corcoran is much more interested in subtle, quiet sounds and Haptic Music is the first release spotlighting solely his ideas. These pieces reflect his interest in percussion as timbre gestures (touching texture, sounding surfaces with objects, droning cymbals) where rhythm is not the major aspect but underscores or enables certain movements.

Haptic Music was recorded between 2008 and 2010. Acoustic and amplified percussion improvised and recorded live. Pro-dubbed chrome cassettes come with embossed paste-on covers and professional full-color j-card inserts.

Limited edition of 100.
