Cardinal Fuzz and Feeding Tube Records are proud to announce the latest Dead Sea Apes LP – ‘Night Lands‘
As darkness falls, once familiar territory is rendered alien and foreboding; full of weird and terrifying possibilities. These are Night Lands. Recorded live in the rehearsal room last December, the newly expanded 4 piece Dead Sea Apes lock into spooky nocturnal grooves, augmented by Nik Rayne (The Myrrors) who was over in the UK for the recording of ‘Night Lands’
Night Lands is comprised of 3 off-the-cuff improvised pieces, where Dead Sea Apes effortlessly mind meld with Rayne. Taking for a deep knowledge and love which you can hear seep through – At times Amon Duul (both!) at others times Earth with touches of what you imagine the Velvet Underground sounded like in the DOM – all touched with the presence of Bo Anders Persson.

Entering their third decade of furtive and fried transmissions, Sunburned not only manage to to live and breathe, but are producing some of their best work. Championed by the likes of Julian Cope, Thurston Moore and Byron Coley (who once called them a “human zoo”), Sunburned recorded Headless back in January 2017 during four days of detainment at Black Dirt Studio in upstate New York, helmed by Jason Meagher of No Neck Blues Band. The project was originally released as Intentions in an edition of 20 cassettes as part of Meagher’s Microdose series.
Recorded and Mixed at Black Dirt Studio, January 26-29, 2017 by Jason Meagher. (Parts of “Framework” recorded at Conrad’s Cosmic Cottage.)
Sounds by John Moloney, Jeremy Pisani, Ron Schneiderman, Robert Thomas, Gary War.

Waterless Hills are drummer Andrew Cheetham (now playing with Richard Dawson, Kiran Leonard, Irma Vep, Yerba Mansa, Desmadrados Soldados de Ventura etc). The recordings feature himself plus two further members of the Manchester Underground wrecking crew – dbh (Kiran Leonard band, Irma Vep band, Jim Ghedi band, his own bad self) on violin; Gavin Clarke (DSDV) on bass – and augmented by Cambridge-based avant-folk musician C Joynes on electric guitar.
The album was recorded in one day direct to 1/4” tape at Hallé St Michaels, Manchester. All tracks were wholly improvised, and the tapes document a slowly-evolving interplay and, at times, ‘on-the-edge’ exchange between the players. The results were eventually shaped into an imaginary soundtrack to an orientalist western loosely themed around Freya Stark’s 1935 travelogue ‘The Valleys Of The Assassins’ and the surrealist occult art of Ithel Colquohoun. The album itself is closely paired with Waterless Hills’ debut release, an 8” lathe of two pieces captured at the same session and released in an edition of 99 copies on All Saints Day 2019 by Sonido Polifonico (www.sonidopolifonico.co.uk). This debut release garnered spins on the BBC Radio 3’s Late Junction, Stuart Maconie’s BBC 6 Music show Freak Zone, and Jeff Conklin’s Avant Ghetto show on WFMU, together with favourable reviews from Byron Coley in Wire magazine.
