KOKORI 7” + THE KIRIKS 3” out now

For their third A Beard of Snails appearance, Kokori offer up a pair of growers... on a fairly nice sounding 7” lathe cut record.

Darker techwave sensibilities meet scorched Zappa cheese; the sonic importance of the vacuum cleaner; The Son of the Sheik meets Metropolis...?!

Limited to 12 copies—with just 4 for sale through the label—this one will surely go by in a glorious blaze. It’s available for download (unlimited edition) as well, though; free D/L if you manage to grab a record.

While the above has long been on the backburner, out of nowhere (and with zero prior hype) comes a 3-inch CD-R, titled ”The River of Zion”, from Indonesia’s The Kiriks!

Cerebral no-fi keyboard surfin’, dadaist birds; whirled peace—which may or may not be yo bidnezz—abounding.  25 copies of this mini.

AND... THAT’S IT

With release numbers 152 & 153 in the grand discography now a reality, I now feel I’m finally able to move on from A Beard of Snails Records.

Whether you’ve been a fan for eight years or eight minutes, thank you for your invaluable support.
 

post-abos activity

A special “final” clearance sale of unearthed / neglected A Beard of Snails and BSBTA stock, for insanely cheap... will happen at some point before the end of 2014.

Announcements about that—and whatever else (related) I think of in the future—will be made here, as well as on Facebook, and via the mailing list. May or may not get back to using Twitter.

Metaphysical Circuits is still going strong, so that’s at least something...
