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.

Let The Cosmic Dead into your world. Let the mighty riff’n’drone take you to the far reaches of time and space. Let Paradigms Recordings bring you ever closer to infinite bliss. This can be achieved, and The Cosmic Dead will guide you there.

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.
