the new batch is now in the assembly phase, here's some details -- numbered editions of 40 with all the fixins, available JUNE 15 here at the PSI LAB SHOP and in person at GUESTROOM RECORDS in oklahoma city, norman and louisville, as well as END OF AN EAR in austin and via highly regarded online distros FLIPPED OUT and ECLIPSE

eclectic psychedelic drone folk artist explores the hazy fringes of his semi dark semi sweet sound and ventures beyond into deeper waters, right in my wheelhouse, perhaps deliberately as this is the first work explicitly commissioned (for lack of a better word) by PSI LAB, NPS hones in on ENO's AMBIENT 4, filters NATURAL SNOW BUILDINGS through a TAKOMA tinted lens with bits of field recordings and tape manipulation, and has a good go at indulgent scuzzy outsider blues guitar bliss, giving SPARKLING WIDE PRESSURE a run for his money, then it all unravels into a glorious INDEX OF METALS esque visceral dark ambient finale, it all comes together so brilliantly, it gels so perfectly, a brazen next level leap

solo debut from NEBULAE frontman recorded live straight to tape in his attic, in the dead of night, just him, his guitar and an arsenal of pedals taking on the infinite darkness threatening to swallow him whole, he takes his stoner metal and shoegazing space rock roots and uses them as kindling to ignite a new beacon in his musical oeuvre, fueled by the works of EARTH and EXPO 70, casting his shadow into the rich textural territories of LOREN CONNORS and FLYING SAUCER ATTACK, righteous zoned in loops laced with hypnotic tones obliterated with blasts of white hot fuzz and feedback, all giving way to a tripped out ritualistic drone finale for the ages, thank god the neighbors didn't call the cops on him

these won't last long i'm sure, hesitate at your own risk, and if that's not enough good stuff in one go then look for a PSI LAB SHOP distro update on JUNE 15 as well
