    Keiji Haino & Charles Hayward 'A Loss Permitted...' Vinyl LP PRE-ORDER


    Release Date: 21/06/2019

    'A Loss Permitted To Open Its Eyes For But Three Hours And There Glimpsed, Finally In Focus A Mystery That Begs Earnestly, "Ask Me Nothing" Now, Once More The Problem Is Yours Alone.'

    Experimental music pioneer Keiji Haino, one of the most mysterious and influential figures to emerge from the Japanese psychedelic underground, teams up with Charles Hayward, British drummer and founding member of This Heat and Camberwell Now, on a new live album released on Thirty Three Thirty Three.

    A loss permitted... (the full title of the record is the above poem in its entirety) comprises a live recording of the duo’s improvised performance at the Copeland Gallery in London in July 2016, presented as part of Thirty Three Thirty Three’s performance series Japan: London.

    The result is fascinating: a mix of air synths, distortions, improvised Japanese poetry and warped guitar sounds. Sedate harmonica and guitar sections give way to cosmic din or an equally unnerving silence, in a performance ALL ABOUT JAZZ described as having ‘no sense of logic, only silence where the tension seemed to build, then finally release’.

    It’s not the first time Haino and Hayward have worked together – Hayward’s rare album Double Agent(s) documents their improvisational sparring live in Japan in 1998.

    Both are restless collaborators: Haino has played with Derek Bailey, Tony Conrad, Jim O’Rourke, Pan Sonic and Stephen O’Malley, as well as in his own groups Fushitsusha, Nazoranai and Nijiumu, among others; while Hayward’s collaborators have included Fred Frith, Thurston Moore and Laura Cannell.

    A loss permitted… sees these two visionary musicians revisit their partnership, creating a sound that is at turns contemplative and ferocious – and always completely compelling.

    Oren Ambarchi, Mark Fell, Will Guthrie, Sam Shalabi 'Oglon Day' Vinyl LP PRE-ORDER


    Release Date: 28/06/2019

    Oglon Day is the debut release from the quartet of Oren Ambarchi, Mark Fell, Will Guthrie and Sam Shalabi.

    Though Ambarchi had previously worked on separate occasions with Fell and Guthrie, the two days the four musicians spent together in a London studio producing this LP was their first meeting as a quartet, preceding an acclaimed performance at the 2016 Masāfāt Festival.

    Coming from diverse backgrounds and concerns, the four musicians have created an effortless blend of their seemingly disparate approaches, carving out a musical space that gives equal weight to Ambarchi’s physically affecting guitar explorations, Fell’s stuttering electronic pulse, Guthrie’s virtuosic drumming and Shalabi’s psychedelic oud improvisations.

    Oglon Day is an inspired meeting of the acoustic and the electronic, the composed and the improvised, the human and the machine, the austere and the joyous. Quite unlike anything else in the four musicians’ respective back catalogues, it also offers a surprisingly accessible point of entry for any listener so lucky as to be unfamiliar with their work

    Thirty Three Thirty Three

    Ben Vince 'Don’t Give Your Life' Vinyl 2xLP PRE-ORDER


    Release Date: 14/06/2019

    Following on from last year’s rapturously received Assimilation, London-based saxophonist, improviser and producer Ben Vince returns with Don't Give Your Life.

    Over the last few years, Vince’s solo saxophone and electronics performances, along with his work in the clattering post-punk troupe, Housewives, have helped him quickly establish a considerable reputation among those in the know.

    Where his first releases under his name honed in on his meditatively layered and looped saxophone lines – placing him in a lineage beginning with the Time Lag Accumulator works of Terry Riley and stretching into the icy expanses of John Surman’s 1980s recordings and the hypnotic riffing of Gilbert Artman’s Urban Sax – Assimilation saw Vince branching out to work with high-profile collaborators such as Micachu and demonstrating his deep love of the outer reaches of club music (also evident on last year’s collaborative 12” with UK bass music bigwig Joy Orbison).

    Don't Give Your Life is the strongest work yet from an artist whose work demonstrates a risk-taking, omnivorous appetite for the new while also digging deeper and deeper into a unique sonic sensibility.
