Kousokuya and LSD March ArchiveDVD releases
« on: August 10, 2007, 04:27:09 PM »
Later today/tomorrow, aRCHIVE will be releasing CD/DVD sets by Kousokuya and LSD March. From the aRCHIVE label news page they look absolutely beautiful packages. I guess that a lot of people on here will already be familiar with the label and know about these, but just in case:

Quote from: aRCHIVE
This Friday the 10th at 6pm eastern US time the archive shop will be updated
with the first two offerings from archiveDVD. ArchiveDVD is a new imprint
collaboration between James Plotkin and Myself. For those who have been
following archive for the past two years you may have noticed an already
high level of involvement between mastering services and musical output
(Khanate, Plotkin/ Wyskida) between James and archive. The DVD label should
loosely continue in philosophy aligned with the CD label by producing small
run projects with a focus on artists both James and I feel are important,
packaged in non-mass produced fashion with a slant towards documentation.

 
KOUSOKUYA “Echoes from Deep Underground” CD+DVD archiveDVD1 for those that
don’t know Kousokuya are a cult garage pysch rock trio formed in the 70’s in
the Tokyo underground music scene by main member, and recently deceased
Jutok Kaneko. Despite having existed for 20+ years the bands output has been
fairly sparse with a few releases on PSF and one domestic US release on the
Forced Exposure label. Originally the archive release was to be comprised of
a fantastic live performance on CD from Osaka in 2001 but having discovered
the existence of video footage from the same performance, coupled with the
efforts of James a bonus DVD was added to the mix. This release represents
to date the only video document of Jutok and Kousokuya released in official
capacity and realistically represent a chance for fans of obscure psych to
see a band, and artist, that basically played outside of Japan only a
handful of times. This pressing of 700 copies comes packaged in a ½ fold
heavy black stock cover with metallic silver and gloss varnish silkscreen
work by the wonderful Alan Sherry of SIWA records. The CD and DVD come in
black envelopes held together by a silkscreen obi strip. $20 postpaid in the
US. Non-US orders see instructions for added postage cost

LSD MARCH “Bigjar solo sets” DVD archiveDVD2 as the title would suggest
represents footage James filmed of all three members of LSD March (Shinsuke
Michishita, Ikuro Takahashi, Masami Kawaguchi) performing solo sets at
Philly’s best book store, BigJar, while on a short US tour in the fall of
2006. Shinsuke and Masami’s renderings represent a Japanese working of
psychy folk for guitar and vocals. Ikuro offers a contrasted short piece of
oscillator assemble that is firmly rooted in the avant-garde, with overtones
of conceptualist art, found sound, and experimentalism. The release comes
packaged in a ½ fold heavy stock cover with a pressing size of 550 copies
design and silkscreen by Jason Killinger from Birds of Maya. $17 postpaid in
the US. Non-US orders see instructions for added postage cost.

There's a good chance that, as with a lot of aRCHIVE releases, these won't last long at all, so get in there early or forever haunt the dreaded eBay.

On sale here.

Quote from: archivecd
SUISHOU NO FUNE “the light of dark night” archive39 A wonderfully dripping in echo single trax live set played during the bands last small batch of shows from their first trip to Philadelphia. A duo drumless performance on this given night finds Sishou no fune doing what they do best bringing the darkness. PACKAGE comes packed in a double cover center opening sleeves with the outer shell being a vellum overlay all graphics by Chase Middaugh. Single pressing of 600 released in conjunction with current US tour dates.
