KSE #172 (full-length, professionally duplicated CDR album)

SIR PLASTIC CRIMEWAVE, “string/soul/eye”

brand-new studio album of long, deep, Indian-flavored solo pieces (with  two Krautrock-flavored interludes to vary the texture) from Chicago’s legendary psychedelic shaman. truly, a higherkey experience. hand-numbered edition of 75 copies

$7 ppd. anywhere


KSE #176 (3″ mini-cd, approx. 19 minutes)

OPHIBRE, “st. asphalt (patron saint of army ants)”

blistering new electronic composition from Boston-based Ophibre (aka Benjamin Rossignol), who has recorded for Ruralfaune, Tape Drift, SRA, and many other cutting-edge labels—-Ophibre is also a builder of instruments, a technician, an aesthetician of the drone—-think scalding-hot asphalt and swarms of army ants alchemically transformed into evolving and revolving sheets of sound…hand-numbered edition of 75 copies

$5 ppd. anywhere

ps, don’t miss Ophibre’s other new release, the exciting PHASE PLANE CAKE DECORATOR, available from Intransitive Recordings’  “Songs From Under The Floorboards” series at


KSE #170 (3-inch mini-cdr, approx. 19 minutes)

DEREK ROGERS, “circum_navigate”

Austin-based musician-composer Derek Rogers recently premiered this haunting electronic composition at the NMASS Festival in June 2010, and the week after that he went into the studio and recorded this 19-minute version for KSE… feel the sting of the contact mic, bathe in the drone, climb the fuzzed-out steps to speaker-shredding bliss…Derek will be playing the Neon Marshmallow Festival in Chicago in August, and will be selling this cdr, but why wait? edition of 75 hand-numbered copies.

$5 ppd. anywhere
