|Dabrye’s Three/Three Instrumentals out Feb 22|
Listen to “Nova” Here
|“Instead of bowing to current trends, Dabrye burrows further into gritty ’90s boom-bap and proto-electronic influences, weaving internationally-sourced samples into his intricately layered compositions.” – Pitchfork|
In 2018, Ann Arbor’s Tadd Mullinix made his long-awaited return with Three/Three, a razor-sharp rap album that brought to completion a prophetic trilogy. But any Dabryefan knows it’s not over until we get the instrumentals. As was offered after Two/Three, Ghostly International now extends Three/Three Instrumentals, a collection of Mullinix’s productions sans MCs. Loose, incisive, detail-driven, his trademark beat technique stands strongly on its own, traversing American and British dance music, Jamaican sound clash energy, jazz/funk/soul

‘LIVE AT SONIC CITY‘ CD & DVD
|Live At Sonic City includes an audio / visual document of TNB’s last ever live performance which took place at the Thurston Moore-curated Sonic City festival in Kortrijk, Belgium in 2017. |
Fans of Noise music will need no introduction to the work of TNB. Ron Lessard, of legendary US Noise label RRRecords, once stated, “I’d give the nod to TNB as being the first truly devoted Noise artists”. TNB served as a major influence on legendary Noise pioneers such as Merzbow and their influence on the current crop of popular crossover Noise artists such as Wolf Eyes is immeasurable.
TNB’s performance at Sonic City can best be described as a noise symphony: metal-bashing and grinding, hammering, eviscerating microphone feedback, torrents of glorious mangle and harsh electronics all skilfully blended with a collage of manifold sounds and dynamics. Far from being a typical Noise show, TNB’s performance (if it can be described as such) contained elements of absurdist theatre and performance art, although I’m sure TNB would be loathe to be described as such. A magnificent display of The Art Of Noise, TNB as defiant as ever in their total rejection of everything.
“For optimal enjoyment we recommend that this DVD be viewed with no sound”.
CD and DVD in 6-panel digipak.

|JOZEF VAN WISSEM & JIM JARMUSCH ANNOUNCE|
AN ATTEMPT TO DRAW ASIDE THE VEIL
THEIR SECOND COLLABORATIVE LP FOR SACRED BONES RECORDS
OUT FEBRUARY 8, 2019
LISTEN TO “CONCERNING THE WHITE HORSE” HERE
Experimental lute player Jozef Van Wissem and acclaimed film director and musician Jim Jarmusch have a working relationship that dates back to 2006, when they ran into each other on the street in New York City and quickly struck up a friendship. Van Wissem contributed to the soundtrack for Jarmusch’s 2013 movie Only Lovers Left Alive, and the two have collaborated on three previous studio albums — Apokatastasis, Concerning the Entrance Into Eternity, and The Mystery of Heaven. An Attempt to Draw Aside the Veil is their second release as a duo for Sacred Bones Records, following The Mystery of Heaven, and its narrative picks up where that album left off.Like The Mystery of Heaven, An Attempt to Draw Aside the Veil delves into the theology of William Blakeand Emanuel Swedenborg, this time also exploring the work of Russian occultist and philosopher Helena Blavatsky. The album is mostly instrumental, so the dialogue between the esoteric thinkers who inspired it and Van Wissem and Jarmusch is expressed primarily in the song titles — fittingly arcane phrases like “Concerning the White Horse,” “The Two Paths,” “When the Sun Rises Do You Not See A Round Disc of Fire.”Musically, the album finds much of its power in minimalism. Van Wissem’s lute traces the outlines of subdued electronics and ominous guitar drones laid down by Jarmusch. It’s a subtle album, and repeat listens reveal vast depths in its dark corners. Above all, it’s an album that sees two formidable collaborators complement each other brilliantly.“An Attempt To Draw Aside The Veil is another adventure with Jozef into the realm of vibrating strings and the dreamlike musical textures of darkness and light,” Jarmusch said of the album.“It was a real pleasure to collaborate with Jozef once again.”
