GS#98 MY CAT IS AN ALIEN / BJERGA/IVERSEN collab LP 13 EURO
It’s been long – too long – since we had some good vinyl to offer you here from the Gold Soundz HQ…
and then, boom! here you got it! 2 psyched-out sides from the mighty Aliens and Norways own answer to Hall & Oates – Bjerga/Iversen. These sides are boiled down from about 2+ hours worth of material recorded last summer in the stunning alpine village of Luserna san Giovanni, just outside of Torino, Italy.
Space electronics, weightless freestyle strings, buzzing voices from the outer heliospheres and garbled and warped messages from the great beyond handed down on recycled trashcan tapes…. celestial harmonies from a neon universe…
There was a double-exposed rainbow over the foot of the western alps this evening in late June, and you can hear the colors seeping through the cracks…
Both My Cat is an Alien and Bjerga/Iversen have extensive discographies and both units have collaborated a lot with others, as this is an important part of our musical universes. So we were all happy to work on these recordings together in a full-blown extensive and focused session…. The recordings are edited by MCIAA.
Edition of 268 copies in ultra-cool neon-colored silkscreened jackets, 5 different varieties.
Co-released with Ikuisuus.
GS#95 JOEY CHAINSAW / KEMA spilt C-20 CASS 5 EURO
The Joey side is solid piece of ultra-crude battered guitar-dirge.. There’s a real crunchy and toasted basement-vibe that is quite rare these days, it sounds like it’s played on a floor-board guitar and pedals found deep in the mud through speakers made of cotton. Kinda like a punk-ass, weed-out version of Ashtray Navigations…
Kema comes more the the Dead C end of things.. Perhaps not that different from Joey, but there’s more stoned-out riffing and that ultra lo-fi guitarbased trash-scapes that we’ve come to love that NZ vibe for…
Excellent stuff for sure, this is pure no-fi so turn up loud and scare away the posers!
Purple tapes wrapped in double-sided purple A4 sheet. Edition of 30.
GS#94 KOMMISSAR HJULER & FRAU / ROGALAND HOT CLUB split C-32 CASS 5 EURO
Der Kommissar und die Frau continue their travel into the deeper realms of art bruit and the frizzled-out upside-down-world.. Chanting, screaming, huffing and puffing, they wrestle their way through the theme of the german detective series like none other could ever do… Somewhere between Ya Ho Wha and the Shadow Ring, but neither here nor there really… There’s a playfulness here that’s all theirs. A unique world either way..
Norway’s improvocateaurs Rogaland Hot Club occuupies the other side with 6 shorter tracks… Vocal outbursts, bathroom chorales, primitivist rock moves and odd thumping all mixed in a kinda Faust tapes style…
Orange tapes wrapped in orange A4 sheet, superb collage art by M. Korsbols. Edition of 50.
GS#96 POSSET “PEED TROFM:OC” C-10 5 EURO
Newcastle’s Posset fleshes out a great collection of miniature collages. The dictaphone king of northeast UK expertly blends noise and non-music components into captivating oddball songs.. however strange this may sound, there’s an easyness and an everyday feel to these compositions that make them highly entertaining… Some tracks also has a sort of a rhythmic backbone… Six tracks in 10 minutes gives this a good album feel…
Yellow tapes wrapped in double-sided yellow A4 sheet. Edition of 30.
GS#90 ROBERT HORTON “TAPE MUSIC 1979-2009” C-60 CASS 5 EURO
A fantastic dive into the dusty and quirky corners of 30 years of true creativity from the amazing force of off-centre sounds experiments and playful psychedelics from the oustanding Robert Horton….
This tape is somewhat of a fluxus-suite that flows and jumps along from one odd moment to the other, always surprising and highly adventurous. .. This wonderful tape consist of 18 tracks (from 6 seconds to over 9 minutes in length) and there are pieces as far back as 1979, quite a few from the 80s and also a good portion from the last few years.. Robert Horton carries the torch of true experimental music like few others, even today…
Red wrapround A4 covers, black tapes.

SEAS” CDR 5 EURO
Beautiful, absorbing drones from the kingdoms of beyond.. Previous releases by TBT have been compared to the lushful supremo-drones of fine ensembles like Ora and Mirror, but this release capture them in a more bleak, frostbitten mood.. Spraypainted cardboard slipcases,

GS#45 GASTRIC FEMALE REFLEX “LOVERS IN THE MIDST OF EATING FRIES” LP 13 EURO
(CO-RELEASE WITH BENNIFFER EDITIONS and ABSURD)
Gastric Female Reflex has been targeting an unsuspecting public with their expertly executed and fried garage-art-noise/ junk since their first 2 Gold Soundz slabs 2 years ago or so. Many a fine CD and cassette has been rolling down the runway since then, but always with a ultra-high quality control and superswanky homecrafted artwork. But THIS is the real shit in the fan – the real(est) deal of ’em all, a superbly wellcrafted LongPlaying vinyl album!! Somewhere between American tapes, “classic” mid-nineties NZ Underground + a healthy dose of Crank Sturgeon / euro-actionist noise humor (if you need the namedrops+pops) .
LP comes sandwiched between two pieces of thick chipboard, marbled and screened with meagre lung-capacity and dwindling solvent-doused health by the glossy-eyed beniffer editions – further confirmation that limited editions and personal detriment knows no bounds. limited to 316.
GS#52 ROBERT HORTON “DIAMOND-BEAK- HORNET-HELL” CDR 6 EURO
New excellent album from the ever-present Robert Horton. “Diamond- beak-hornet- hell” deals with buddhist states of mental hell as interepreted by Robert Horton in a truly psychedelic vision. His unique blend of haunted free jazz, psychedelia, concrete sounds and damaged folk-noise is truly beautiful and sucks you right in. This is where you want to stay… Price reflects a little more expensive cover. Edition of 108 in full color printed cover.

GS#31 – CRANK STURGEON / GASTRIC FEMALE REFLEX split 7″ 6 EURO
(CO-RELEASED W/ BENNIFER EDITIONS)
“On one side, Torontosaurs Gastric Female Reflex expose their
vulnerable underbellies by offering the world the gift of song, as
transmitted through the cackle of thirty meter bronze age jump ropes, and then swatted with limitless spools of tape culled from
businessmens faulty tape recorders. The flipside is deepwoods Maine-based Crank Sturgeon, taking a similar story and running it into the side of a convent full of shark-eating nuns. Setting loose the angry hornets, these ladies of the lord respond with high powered leaf blowers, stopping now and again to play a little violin and pee into their dixie cups. Not your typical avant “electro-acoustic” record, both projects assure this baby can dance like a school of fish, drunk on mercury and TAB cola perhaps, but to an effect that is glorious and spacious; snakey and experimental as all hairy heck, yet an electro-doot we can all blorp and weeze and get primitive with.” – Crank Sturgeon. Edition of 300 copies. //// ONLY 6 LEFT!! ////
GS#21 – ASHTRAY NAVIGATIONS “TO YOUR F//KING FEATHER’D WINGS” CD 8 EURO
(CO-RELEASED WITH ABSURD)
Absurd and Gold Soundz proudly presents a slab of acid psychout noise from Ashtray Navigations. Phil Todd has been toasting brains for years now with a number of great releases. But nothing cuts right into his acid dreams like this smokebomb of pure psych-wah. Nearly an hours worth of perfectly fried head AND skull music. Definately one to be had…
“Although it’s not a daily question for me, I must admit I sometimes to wonder about some people. People whose work I strongely admire but that somehow seem to disappear. Where are they hiding? One such person is Phil Todd, aka Ashtray Navigations. A few years ago he had a stream of releases, mostly on CDR or very limited vinyl, but I don’t recall seeing something new from him. So you can’t believe how delighted I was to see this new sign of life, a real CD under the banner ‘To Your Fucking Feather’d Wings’ – and I wasn’t the only since two labels are responsible for this release. Maybe I missed a couple in the recent years? In case, Ashtray Navigations play lo-fi guitar noise, recorded on probably the shittest means around. All in good order to get that signature Ashtray Navigations recording sound.
I imagine Phill Todd in his garage, with his guitar and maybe two
effect pedals, a fuzzy amp, a cheap microphone and an old reel to
reel tape-recorder, playing the guitar with fingers, brushes, toys or
pieces of scrap metal. Maybe I’m a hopeless romantic fool. There are three tracks here, the first two are quite short, but the title piece is some forty-five minute epos of guitar scraping. Noisy but minimal, sort of like a solo garage version of the ‘Theatre Of Eternal Music’. In these long pieces, Ashtray Navigations are at their best. Lengthy psychedelic lofi guitar improv noise. Quite a mouthful, but worth every penny. Welcome back.”

GS#13 – VOLCANO THE BEAR “TUNNELS AND WHEELS/SHAKE YOUR CROW” 7″
7 EURO ////// LAST 10 COPIES ! ///// NO WHOLESALING
GS314 – CHRISTINA CARTER “UNTITLED” 7″ 6 EURO
GS#18 – VIBRACATHEDRAL ORCHESTRA “ROYAL PARK 260902″/BRUDENELL
160103″ 7” 6 EURO
“Three 7″ singles next, all on the Gold Soundz label, which releases
limited edition records by yer more experimental artists, each
packaged in a pleasing Op Art ‘factory sleeve’. Volcano The Bear
offer two chunks of tripped-out, abstract psych – with chanting,
horns, scraping and drones combining into the most wonderful, head-melting, cloying music, sounding totally not of this time and space.
Christina Carter, from Charalambides, has two guitar ‘pieces’ on her single, which are very much in a Charalambides vein – lovely, quiet, mournful, meandering guitar pieces, luckily falling far short of total introspective hippy nonsense!
Vibracathedral Orchestra are heavy, heady drone-based hypnosis
music; their tracks (recorded live!) remind me of Spacemen 3’s An
Evening Of Contemporary Sitar Music, but are more self-assured,
textural and mind-altering.
Excellent stuff from what looks to be a very cool label.” Simon

GS#12 – NOISE MAKERS FIFES “MONOMANIA OF INSTINCT” CDR 6 EURO
(CO-RELEASED WITH HUMBUG)
Finally this great NMF live recording from Stockholm 1998 is seeing the light of day (after many delays). Loosely based on Bachelard’s animalistic aggression theory applied to the writings of Lautreamont (“Les Chants de Maldoror”), this MS Stubnitz live audio-visual performance stands out as one of NMFs perhaps strongest live performances. One very long track (65 minutes), it takes you from the inaudible to the full-on sense attack and back, it’s exploding with strong emotions… Perfomed partly on homemade sound sculptures, they have developed a musical language that is quite unique. Edition of 250 numbered copies in fold-out slipcase cover
