Bennifer Editions

Man Made Hill - Puzzle Answers LP $18

Have you ever heard a pinball machine collapse down a flight of touch sensitive keyboard stairs? Have you lived la vida loca with marinara coursing through your veins? Have you ever seen or felt the white soul combing the churn of a century-old fox trot interlude? The debut long playing vinyl of Randy Gagne's Man Made Hill is the key to that door. Behind it ceiling fans actively seek out shit piles to fling into the brackish waft of a slaughterhouse dance floor where corpulent slabs of nameless meat careen off their hooks in a mockery of modern dance. Technotronic hot flashes floss the slippery keyboard runs of a synthesized marimba with food poisoning recalling the histrionic hand clapping and mellifluous tinsel pulling of The Flying Lizards. During a sentimental reprieve an overworked farm hand ceases his ploughing and looks up to a horizon riddled with plush clouds and mops his brow with a dirty handkerchief. It's been a long hot day and it's time to do the pump rectilinear the air we breathe.
The result is a sort of pelvis pulverizing one is not likely to forget, with crowd favorites like "Kool Cops", "Get Gout" and 12 other potential anthems for a sprawling gaggle of straggly-haired genetically-indifferent lovers. Tower of Randy for pres!
The record itself is pressed on white vinyl in a silkscreened sleeve designed by Martina Hwang, Bartosz Gawdzik and Andrew Zukerman.

Family Underground - Demon Parade LP $14
"Think I will set up a booth to sell fried infant fat to the evil parade peeps. But as the demons fly & buzz around the street doing they circus stunting, i would lift open a sewer cap with a rusty iron and slowly creep into the sewers cause who the f**uck is gonna wanna sell ANYTHING at a Demon Parade. You just gonna loose, prob. everything. They don't necessarily carry around change in a chain wallet do they? Or want overpriced Demon Cokes? No way hose.' AND it would be mad LATE at night. No thanks.
So, I would gander, the real party (human at least) would be UNDER the demon parade. With total weirdo's. Taking the most of the awful echoey, grating, strange acoustics that lie under the cement streets under the prancing of the demon hooves/feet. I have in my brain an imagine of a m-f duo, comfortable to the street chaos as they are from the free-anarchy of K-town, huddled around the sewer basement by trash can firelight making a slow-MO nerve numbing in tune/outta tune semitone racket to the soundtrack of their busy brain/nuggets. Would sound amazing, slow and mean, thick and meaty but uncluttered, strange and comfortable, KINDA. Like a mystery w/o a mellow ending. Would sound like.....DEMON PARADE. Duh. But like, under the streets to a DEMON PARADE. Cause: See ABOVE. True Family Underground story: One rainy spring night outside a punk club in K-town, some young freeker jammers punkers were looting brew from a Korean Nail Saloon / Party store right next door that left their door unlocked. As scattering happy punkers were cleaning this joint out and stuffing as many tall boys into band-adourned flannel shirts, the two relaxed m-f members of FAMILY UNDERGROUND thought it would be more kosher to do a super quiet set inside, a challenge to high volume AKA being caught. Me & wolf boys were the only ones in attendance to this theft-gig and were blown away by watching the FU's wave papers, move cutlery around, and get UNSOUND from Korean nail equipment NOT plugged in. It was amazing. It was, in my simple brain, what seeing the mythical SOUTHFIELD CAFETERIA FORK BAND live on the coldest night in winter must've been like. Super kool. After they did this NON SOUND FAMILY UNDERGROUND concert, the duo went peacefully to the cooler, gripped FIVE tall boys and we went black outside, UNCAUGHT. Life on the edge, HOW WE DO IT YO.
So anyway, Dig this LP. Its real frozen/wild/weird. Sounds good pitched down.

Caboladies - S/T LP $13
As a pixel leaves the screen, and dissolves back into the field of visual static, a small measure of air is released in the transaction. Most often, this newly liberated measure of air will seek either to expand it's moisture or to expand it's heat. Though, in a smaller percentage of cases the air will attempt to expand it's phosphorescence. By reversing it's course and attempting to dissolve back into the screen, the air endeavors, against all chemical possibility, to reconstitute with it's severed pixels. What the air finds, is that the original pixils have themselves reconstitueted with the realm of natural static. With not a pixel to bond, the air is thus nudged to remain in the atmosphere surrounding the screen. A similarly emotional exchange bubbles through the uniquely hyper-dense surfaces sculpted by Caboladies. Theirs is a study of fatigued electronic code, magnified and multiplied. A mutant minimalist calculus of key generated go-zones and opaque technological patchworks, where machines self-destruct in pursuit of their own Walden equivalent. As plasma leaks from behind the monitor's buttons, light reconvenes with the screenless realm. It is with great pleasure that DNT Records presents the self-titled long player from CABOLADIES. Recorded by the three piece of Chris Bush, Eric Lanham, and Ben Zoeller, this collection draws a narrative thread through their past releases on Arbor, Students of Decay, Mountaain, and their own Smooth Tapes imprint. It's not so much a summation of their back catalog as it is a spotlight on a particularly fluid and holographic area of their sound. A truly amazing audio experience, whether you're seeking some incredible music to fling on as you Play Poker, or you want to lose yourself in a surround-sound melodic wonderland. The result is a flowing and coherent collection of nuanced electronic mess. A real trip and an excellent demonstration of the Cabo ethos. Remastered from the original source materials by Pete Swanson
Plankton Wat - Dawn of the Golden Eternity LP $12
Now OOP at label.. last chances on this?
Debut solo LP by Dewey Mahood of Portland psych-jammers Eternal Tapestry. Ten songs recorded at the Owl House basement last winter on cassette 4-track. The LP encompasses a vast array of sounds and moods, from blissed-out drone punk rippers to super chill deep space folk. Total late night stoney textures, and radiant sun anthems. Acoustic and electric guitar, drums, banjo, mbira, and some singing, all mega tripped with syrupy analogy delay. Really beautiful heavy zoners

Edibles - Other Minds Meet Inner Space LP $14
Hot off the dub plate and drenched in analog syrup comes the debut full length LP by Portland, OR trance boogie band Edibles. Founded by Dewey Mahood (Eternal Tapestry, Plankton Wat, etc) in 2009, the album picks up where 2010's twin tapes for Not Not Fun and Stunned left off, but doubles the funk with the addition of Dusty 'Beats' Dybvig (Brass Clouds) on live drums and mystic synth. Album opener "Rad Trip" starts like a Sun City Girls ritual seance before blazing into some brown acid Hendrix theatrics. Live set staple "Mind Fry" brings the classic Edibles recipe of dubby bass loop with stream of consciousness guitar and patented fog-chant vocals. "Skyway" and "Parachute Jumpin" add guest collaborator Ben Bogard aka DJ Rumtrigger (and Sonic Lozenge boss) on 70's vintage drum machine and monophonic synth pulses. Goner dub jam "Midnight Movie" comes off like Les Rallizes Denudes getting in the zone at King Tubby's. "Dune Buggy" hits the WARM JETS trail with some catchy pop hooks wrapped in classic electronic meltdown. Album closer "Future Life Dub" sounds like it was transported from the BLACK ARK circa SUPER APE, all roots groove and shamanistic flute song. 10 songs of chill funk and cosmic bliss record at The Owl House

Feast of Tentacles (U.K.)

Horders//Rot In Hell - Split 7" $8
Horders - Fimbulvetr Gatefold LP $20


WAPSTAN "Saturnales" CDR $6

Montreal's noise-drone wizard Martin Sasseville (also of Tandoori Dream) slow-roasts interplanetary circuit insanity for the heavy heads. Feel the waves! Inyrdisk' first non-Toronto release is a real pressure cooker from the dude who has brought the world much Brise-Cul madness.
Edition of: 100 CDR's


MAMA BAER Exorcismes From All My Fingers 2xLP $33

In the words of her husband and collaborator Kommissar Hjuler, this is the Mama Bär double album release of the century. A ritualistic culmination of all the Flensburg, German woman's latest cathartic, emancipated sonic soul awakenings. Eight epic spiritual evocations and alien dream soundtracks spread over four packed sides. A modern freak out unlike any other. Deluxe full colour artwork inside and out.

De Stijl Records

We'll have these soon

hype williams
find out what happens when people stop being polite, and start gettin reel

IND 088 LP

Hype Williams may or may not consist of two people named D. Blunt and Inga Copeland, it may or may not still be part of an 18 year relay project thought up by a lady named Denna Frances Glass. Lately there has also been rumor that it is the side project of singer Joss Stone (she evidently financed the making of it).

Either way, when asked for a statement concerning Find Out What Happens When People Stop Being Polite, And Start Gettin Reel, we’ve been informed via email from Inga Copeland only these words : ritolin (sic) and rama lama 555 (sic).

Phantom Payn Days
Phantom Payn Daze
IND 079 LP

While in the widely neglected 39 Clocks, he made records that never sold and played gigs that few ever saw, Juergen Gleue has arguably been the most important exponent of electrified German sound since the late 1970s. Phantom Payn Daze was made in the mid to late 90s and has never been released. It's his final LP and is overflowing with all the elements that romanticized, loner / stoner music claims, an encoded expression of highly private feelings, an ambiguous, emotional quotient, and a dark, murkily melodic vibe. It's a record that first and foremost lives and breathes with an endless stream of great songs. But perhaps it's most curious component is it's amazingly prescient sound, a precursor to so many of today's lo fi acts, all wrapped up in their San Francisco hair.

the parasites of the western world
s / t
072 lp

the parasites of the western world are a band from portland OR who released their recorded debut in 1978. it's a fascinating spin, a galactic ramble across the otherworldly themes of alienation and paranoia, seemingly inspired by LSD and philip dick. primarily the creation of patrick burke and terry censky, the parasites were limitless with invention and completely DIY. this is a record that was recorded in an apartment, by a crew thoughtful enough to curtail it's loud excursions for the daylight hours. its rockist moves are surprisingly informed by the typical institutions of this era : pink floyd, the beatles and hawkwind and it's many electronic flourishes are an above ground sound that would presage the likes of vertical slit, f / i and vertigo. the parasites remain to be light years ahead of a time that has yet to come.

New Store Page

Welcome to the new Store site for stuff we've collected through the Dub Ditch Picnic and Prairie Fire Tapes labels.

Due to a catastrophic keystroke, I wiped out the store that was connected to the DDP page so I made a new site dedicated solely to non-Dub Ditch/Prairie Fire releases.

Ordering is simple. Please email your wants to dubditchpicnic (at) gmail. com and we'll let you know totals with postage.
