Here are the descriptions/links/covers:
MR-081 Mark Van Hoen “Playing With Time” 2x LPFirst time on vinyl reissue of Mark Van Hoen’s 1998 masterpiece presented on a deluxe 2LP. Playing With Time perfectly showcases the lush and deep environments that can only arise from Van Hoen (Locust, Scala, Seefeel). Contains a side long bonus track best described as a modal Eno-style classical ambient piece that was originally intended as a ‘hidden’ track at the end of the original 1999 CD release.
“A Mesh Of Loveliness” Melody Maker
“Exquisite production ideas that are so expertly executed” Dazed & Confused
“The perfect, spacey chill-out album” Sunday Telegraph
“A sound that at it’s best has a positively spiritual quality about it” The Sunday Times
“At the cutting Edge” Computer Music “A melange of jerky, cut-up sounds, stretched out ambience… that owes more to Far-Eastern music than to Steve Reich” Sleazenation
“The sound scape is so deep and diverse that it’s accessible to anybody into laidback beats and soothing, beautiful noise” HiFi World
MR-082 Gavin Guthrie “The Totality” 2xLP
AND lastly, the re-press of MR-079 Spectrum “Highs, Lows And Heavenly Blows”
First time reissue on any format of the 1994 album by Spectrum. Spectrum is the project of Sonic Boom (ex-Spacemen 3 as well as Experimental Audio Research) and collaborators (technically his 3rd album but the 2nd under the name Spectrum). Carrying on the signature sound exemplified on “Soul Kiss (Glide Divine),” “Highs, Lows And Heavenly Blows” lulls the listener into a deep trance with its droning and hypnotic tracks and treated vocals, on top of a myriad of analog synths and Sonic’s recognizable guitar treatments. The first track “Undo the Taboo” sets the stage for a meditative ride that doesn’t let up until the last track. Absolutely crucial and long awaited reissue. 2nd pressing on black 180gram vinyl.
