    Dark ambient experimental drone and industrial oddities. Great for sleepless nights in the sweltering summer.

    This is the second volume of "Archival", featuring a recently remastered version of the 2011 John Lithium album "Insomnia" (except for the final track, which did not have an original project file or archived resources to make a good remaster from), three compilation tracks from 2011 and 2012 in their unreleased original forms, a number of rarities from 2011 that were never remixed into other tracks/albums, along with a number of recent experiments and expressions from 2015. The purpose of this release is to serve as a time capsule of my musical endeavors, in addition to providing possible glimpses into the future...

  • [New album] Autharktos - Hellanschauung (2015)

    20. Jun. 2015, 5:05 von Borealiscape

    It is delight to announce Autharktos´ brand new issue Hellanschauung is out now. It continues to trudge across the landscapes of psycho-acoustic, drone, experimental electronic, noise, ambient, found sound, sound-art, glitched-out seeds and improvised music. These sounds are permeated with "errors", "dysfunctional" elements as flipsides of the artist`s playfulness. As with previous albums so far the release can be downloaded at following sites:

  • "Fantastic Planetscapes" by mutaHERTZ (ARGREC25) [Jack Hertz / I.v.Martinez]…

    mutaHERTZ (Jack Hertz + T.R.I.v.M.)

    Listen/Download here: https://argalirecordsnetlabel.bandcamp.com/album/fantastic-planetscapes

    Just in time for Halloween, Argali Records is proud to release "Fantastic Planetscapes" by mutaHERTZ, which is the collaborative effort of Jack Hertz (jackhertz.com) and I.v.Martinez (http://trivm.bandcamp.com). Also featuring artwork by surrealist photographer/artist Ivan Vaclavik (www.vaclavik.eu), "Fantastic Planetscapes" is a heavy, spaced-out exploration into the depths of the stars, influenced by the 1973 movie "Fantastic Planet" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fantastic_Planet).

    Inspired by the film's soundtrack by Alain Goraguer and sound effects by Jean Guérin, Jack Hertz created a series of analog synth recording for use in collaborative efforts. These elements were then further remixed and processed by I.v.Martinez into the finished result. Thus the listener is thrust into vast and swiftly evolving soundscapes reminiscent of the vistas of unimaginable alien worlds and the strange intelligence that may populate them. An unsettling, yet meditative experience.

    The Tapegerm page for the "Fantastic Planetscapes", featuring further information and the samples utilized in this project, can be found here (www.tapegerm.com/jack-hertz/projects/9/fantasic-planetscapes). Per the projects stipulation, this album is being released under a Creative Commons license CC BY-NC-SA 3.0 US.

    Music for Draags AND Oms.

    This is ARGREC25.
    This one's for you.

  • The Guittard Tapes I and II

    12. Aug. 2014, 6:17 von Guittard

    The Guittard Tapes Volume 1
    The Guittard Tapes Volume 2

    This group of songs collected dust for almost a decade. In 2012, I resurrected and mixed the songs from the misplaced 4-Track Tapes I had in storage boxes in Dallas, Texas since 2006 when I went into the Peace Corps in Bulgaria.
    The tunes were all recorded in Los Angeles, California during the period 1999-2003. At that time, I was working on songs for my California Daze album. The songs I include on the Guittard Tapes were never released until now. You will find some alternate takes or early versions for a few California Daze songs: Beach and Jazz Tune.

    Back then I was listening to the Byrds quite heavily and therefore many of the tunes are intentionally jangly with Rickenbacker sounds. I played the drums, bass, and even a sitar on the first track which was recorded 3 Weeks After 9-11. Other instruments I played were a 12 String Guild acoustic guitar, Fender Telecaster B-Bender, Dr. Groove Drum Machine, and various keyboards and percussion.
    Notice also that there is a song called Election 2000 which is about the Bush/Gore Election.

    Here is the track list:
    1. 3 Weeks After 03:36
    2. Aliens 03:57
    3. Ordinary Guy 03:44
    4. Getting There Is Not So Easy 03:15
    5. Jingle Jangle Instrumental 02:44
    6. Batman 02:12
    7. Jazz Tune 2000 Demo 02:30
    8. Beach Original 02:06
    9. Station 03:02
    10. Election 2000 02:00
    11. Jangly Instrumental 04:09
    12. Psychedelic Consciousness 03:13
    13. Walkie-Talkie Experiment 02:59
    14. Are You Up Instrumental 02:48
    15. More Jangle 02:21
    16. Tremolo Instrumental 01:20

  • (ARGREC23) "An Analysis Of The Past: The Genesis Of Experimental Processes"…

    27. Mai. 2014, 0:09 von JohnLithium

    Download here: https://archive.org/details/ARGREC23

    While our gaze may be firmly set towards the future, it is important at times to indulge in retrospection. After all, without a firm grasp of where we came from and who we once were, we have little to no hope of firmly establishing who we will be and where we will go.

    To assist in this endeavor, Argali Records Netlabel presents "An Analysis Of The Past: The Genesis Of Experimental Processes". For this compilation, we asked experimental musicians to submit to us a track among their earliest recorded experimental output that they were comfortable sharing. In this transaction, this compilation is meant to stimulate retrospection not only among the listeners of the compilation, but the participants themselves. Old chestnuts and diamonds in the rough were recovered from the dusty corners of hard drives and shelves to be allowed their chance to shine.

    Twenty-five bands answered the call, resulting in a massive four-hour collection. Genres include industrial (in a very wide assortment of styles), glitched-out acoustic, ambient, rock-flavored cut-up collages, electronica, atmospheric power electronics, long-form synth improvisations, noise, guitar soundscapes, and (as always it seems with Argali compilations) many permutations, subversion, and mutations of the above-stated genres.

    Featuring tracks by shades of grey on a pink field (Brownian e/motion), Problem Anderer Leute, Beinaheleidenschaftsgegenstand, mhz, Mystified, Rest In Satin Silence, Herr Schmitd Hat Krach, Marvin Ferguson/Luxurious Dagger, Otto V Rhino, Ayn Morgan, Bedawang, Josef Nadek, M.NOMIZED, Dave Fuglewicz, Anastasia Vronski, Earth Concrete, mascara, LaMunyecaAutómata, Dan Miñoza, Miracle Nails, OS125, TOTALITNÝ REŽIM, Jukka-Pekka Kervinen, halluciphile, and Travis Johnson. Also featuring graphic design by John Lithium.

    Music from the past to illuminate the future.
  • Terra Engine: A Dark Place compilation now Available! (Free Download)

    27. Apr. 2014, 15:15 von JohnLithium

    Download here: http://lithiumindustries.bandcamp.com/album/a-dark-place

    After several years of inactivity, Terra Engine returns with a final retrospective/compilation, entitled "A Dark Place". Within are a number of tracks from the albums "Power Ambience", "Khvarenah", and "Hive Mind" (here presented for the first time in high-fidelity .WAV format and equivalents), along with a number of recently discovered unreleased archival tracks, all recorded between 2007 and 2008. Although establishing a definite genre for this collection is somewhat difficult, but sounds and themes explored include what was once described as 'power ambience', dub, atmospheric industrial electronica, dark ambient, and other, less easily definable genres as well. In short, this collection is a window in to the past of it's creator, a glimpse of dark, occluded, and yet not devoid completely of light and hope.
