Mylene Sheath goodies, Cosmic Dead and more from Paradigms Recordings, ODAWAS LPs from Bookmaker and glorious Essence Music CDs!

It’s been a while, but finally we have some new Mylene Sheath jamz for your listening pleasure. In a new development at the label, we have the first cassette release by the Sheath. Constants main-man Will Benoit steps away from his usual rock haunt, and provides us with an intimate insight into his creative left-fieldism with his Living Phantoms release ‘Shiver’. The mighty Pelican grace us with a little slab of 45rpm instru-rock gold, we have brand new songs from a brand new post-hardcore/alt-rock band in San Angelus (featuring a bloke from Pelican), we have the gloriously understated Dust Moth EP on 12″ vinyl and CD; plus restocks of Caspian’s Tertia and You Are The Conductor LPs.

The Archipelago Rises is once again, very proud and honoured to be stocking releases from that most impressive label, Paradigms Recordings. In our latest batch, we’ve got the CD presses of all The Cosmic Dead full-lengths, including the never-before-released Orbiting Salvation! Back in stock is the Self-Titled release, which started this whole new world off; The Exalted King, now on CD since we’ve looooong sold out of our previous cassette version from Dub Ditch Picnic; EasterFaust, previously only available on LP via Sound of Cobra (we have one of those left too!) and as mentioned, Orbiting Salvation, brand new to the physical format. As with all Paradigms Releases, they are beautiful things. Wondrous things. Things that will change your mind about the world we live in.

Michael J Tapscott, the man behind the incredible ‘Good Morning, Africa’ LP release Bookmaker put out a little while back, is back again with his alter-ego-band ODAWAS. ‘Casting their gaze into the cosmos, the present finds Odawas crafting songs of the future to deal with the past. Drawing from the later novels of science-fiction visionary Philip K. Dick, songwriter Michael James Tapscott adapts campfire stories of personal narrative and vicarious observation for the frozen flames of Ichthys. Across these interstellar structures of human plight, producer and arranger Isaac Edwards paints galactic swaths of cinematic scope and delves deeper into the sonority of the organic and synthetic, from the dim-lit ache of resignation in “Home,” through the epiphanic vastness of “What If Our World is Their Heaven?” With Reflections of a Pink Laser, Odawas extends a stigmatic hand and with a flash of the eyes invites you, dear listener, on an epic journey from innerspace to the outer limits.’

In some unfortunate news, the sleeves arrived to me with seam splits at the top and some of the corners are a bit bumped. Seems the postal services didn’t think this package was worth handling with any kind-of care. Whilst the vinyl is perfect, the splits at the top measure a centimetre or so. The price has been reduced to accommodate.

I’ve spent the past night going through the bigcartel shop, adding samples to listings or at least, linx to samples. Now you should be able to have a quick listen to everything we’ve got for sale. We’ve also simplified the shipping process. Everything is now available in the store for everyone in the world to buy and international orders will receive a Paypal Payment Request for the remainder of the shipping monies required to ship the order.

The Archipelago Rises DownLoad Series no. 3 (TARDLS003) is shipping with all orders.

International Shipping back up and running in the bigcartel store

Hey all, just a quick note regards the infernal monolith that is Australia Post. The good news is we are up and running again with international shipping through the bigcartel store. The bad news is their international rates have changed once again, so I’ve had to remove individual shipping rates for each item and have added an International Shipping product in the store that you need to select on top of your purchase (if you’re not getting yr item shipped to an Australian address). You will pay the amount of shipping that listed with each item you buy + the International Shipping option in order to get yr item sent.

This may end up seeming like a lot of money, and if you buy multiple LPs, it WILL be a lot of money. HOWEVER, whatever you pay over and above what Australia Post will charge to ship yr item(s), WILL BE REFUNDED TO YOU. That is The Archipelago Rises shipping promise. The MAXIMUM shipping any buyer will pay when buying stuff at The Archipelago Rises will be the EXACT postage charge Australia Post charges me to send the item(s).

You can read more about it here:  http://thearchipelagorises.bigcartel.com/shipping-enquiries
There is a SHIPPING category in the Label section which has both international shipping options:  http://thearchipelagorises.bigcartel.com/category/shipping

REMEMBER, the maximum you will ever pay for shipping through The Archipelago Rises is the exact cost Australia Post charges to send the item.

And, after we make all the calculations, and yr still unhappy with the shipping cost, I will only be too happy to refund your total order before it gets sent out.

Wode, Linear Bells, Blue Tapes, Seabuckthorn (Bookmaker Records)

Some more goodies for ye:

WODE – Demo 2011

We here at The Archipelago Rises are intensely excited about Wode. Reading a little bit about them from the Forever Doomed forums, we knew we had to investigate further and get some in for the punters down here. What we have is unrelenting black metal, utilising aggressive vocalising rather than the screech we’re used to in the genre, touches of hardcore in their breakdowns, and not very much of the ambient post-rock passages we’ve heard recently.

It’s intense.

We have CDrs limited in an edition of 75 (individually numbered, with alternative art, a bonus track not found on the cassette and housed in plastic sleeve) and one solitary copy of the now sold out cassette version, for you hardcore analog listeners out there, limited to 100.

Highly recommended.

LINEAR BELLS

The Archipelago Rises is proud to announce a new partnership with LINEAR BELLS. Linear Bells is David Teboul, who writes gorgeous ambient pieces in the vein of Absent Without Leave and Greenhouse. We have 2 releases in store for you:

An Island:
Summer Haze:

‘An Island’ was released in limited quantities by Zeon Light Kassett and ‘Summer Haze’ comes on extremely limited, beautifully presented self released CDr (ltd to 20).

SUMMER HAZE was recorded using, guitars, piano, melodica, field recordings, during 2012 summer. Just lying on the grass, close your eyes and let you lead by the summer chimeras

NEW SEABUCKTHORN from BOOKMAKER!

Seabuckthorn has just released their follow-up to the acclaimed ‘In Nightfall’ through Bookmaker Records, ‘The Silence Woke Me’. More of that psychedelic acoustic folk from these Oxfordshire lads.

BLUE TAPES!

We have the inaugural release from a brand new label, Blue Tapes!”Blue Tapes is a new sound art/spoken word cassette label specialising in making mysterious, collectible little handmade packages.” Blue Tapes will be releasing a new release every month, marrying a piece of music to accompanying artwork in perfect symmetry.

We have ‘blue one’, Matt Collins dreamscape ‘The Grin Without The Cat Or The Cat Without The Outline’. “Entirely instrumental, dense with almost Tangerine Dreamy textures, The Grin is an impressively sculpted piece of dreamsound. At some points on this release Matt sounds exactly like the kind of producer Björk should be ringing right now to supply a classic sequel to Vespertine.”
