Brother Ong - Deep Water Vibration

"Deep Water Vibration" by Brother Ong Brother Ong returns to Deep Water with an immersive musical exploration just hinted at on his 2011 label debut. Instrumentally, Deep Water Vibration again centers around the Indian shahi baaja, abetted occasionally by modified autoharp, both processed via live electronic effects into looping, swirling waves of sound. The music harks back to the extended kosmische trance-outs of pioneers such as Klaus Schulze, but with cosmic analog synthesizers replaced by astral meditation zithers, and diving deep in the sea rather than drifting in space. Cover photos show the Brother receiving his transmission directly from the source; we had to resist calling it Ong the Beach… Three tracks, 40 minutes.

Anvil Salute - Black Bear Rug

"Black Bear Rug" by Anvil Salute We’re pleased to welcome Norman, OK’s Anvil Salute back to Deep Water, as their previous release for the label – 2007’s This Is the Voice of Doom Calling – has long been an in-house favorite. Several years in the (slo-mo) making, Black Bear Rug marks the group’s first foray into full-length multi-track recording, with a rich sound that weaves mandolin, accordion, banjo, ektara, esraj and flute into the drifting blend of acoustic & electric guitars, upright bass, and drums, across settings both spontaneous and composed. Compared with the rooster’s crow of its predecessor, Black Bear Rug finds Anvil Salute in a mostly pensive frame of mind, manifesting a late-night comedown atmosphere suspended somewhere between Great Plains and opium den, optimized for listener immersion possibilities. Seven tracks, 47 minutes.

Dead Sea Apes – Lupus

"Lupus" by Dead Sea Apes Dead Sea Apes are a Manchester, England-based trio with a big, dark sound that incorporates everything from space- to post- in its ambitious instrumental rockscapes. Lupus is the band’s first full-length disc, following two e.p.s on the group’s own Soul Desert Records. Compared with the muscular mini-epics on those releases, Lupus seems to emanate from a more ghostly dubbed-out post-punk aesthetic. The album took shape in August 2011 as an experiment in improvising on drones and loops, followed by varying amounts of editing and further recording. The immersive outcome ranges from ambient cloud to massive crunch via elliptical extended rhythms and creeping effects, all shot through with a hovering ominous presence. Seven tracks, 57 minutes.

Stone Breath - The Snow-White Ghost-White Stag

"The Snow-White Ghost-White Stag" by Stone Breath On March 31, 2012, Timothy Renner led his band of Dark Holler minstrels up into PA’s central mountains for one of our Deep Water concerts (a double bill with Arborea). While Tim has played here often, this was his first visit with the long-running/lately-revived Stone Breath, which to our minds clearly called for documentation via multi-channel live recording. The show also marked the first significant out-of-town performance by the current edition of the group, and they certainly rose to the occasion, invoking the magick with dynamic versions of a cross-section of favorite songs from recent studio albums. As Stone Breath’s first-ever live release this is a must for any fan, and it also works as a fine (re)introduction to dark, spiritual, and macabre folk music that is the group’s trademark. Ten tracks, 40 minutes.

Evening Fires – Flora and Fauna

"Flora and Fauna" by Evening Fires Flora and Fauna, the eleventh album from Evening Fires, takes you on an amble through a warm garden of big buzzy late summer psychedelic rock music. Basic tracks were recorded live to 4-track at the Ramblewood branch (plenty of Fender Rhodes, yeah man) and elaborated upon thereafter at the Hoy St. studios, thus combining the improvisational live side of the group – at times here almost, I dunno, groovy or something – with the augmented sonic freakout possibilities of the studio. Flowing, scrappy jams that unfold to the sun in their own joyful organic shapes. Three tracks, 40 minutes.

Evening Fires – After the End of the World

"After the End of the World" by Evening Fires After the live-in-a-barn Holy Ghost Explosion, Evening Fires return to studio HQ and set the controls for the day after tomorrow. It may be overstating things to call After the End of the World a “concept album”, but there is a definite focus extending across the disc’s four lengthy tracks, resonating with the mood and atmosphere of the title. There’s also a pronounced overall shape: While still drawing heavily on improvisational methods, this is the most structured Evening Fires release to date, an unfolding organic (post-organic?) sense of direction that carries through the diversity of styles on hand – techno-kraut walls of synthesizers, winding psych-rock crunch, floating humid ambience, ecstatic freejazz energy music, underwater dreamscapes (w/violin), and other less definable sounds. A soundtrack for the collapse of the old and the dream of new birth. Four tracks, 67 minutes.
