Stunned Aside #10

C. Clother & Ted Trager“Circle Drawings” zine —out of stock

Spanning now into their third year of successful collaboration, Ted Trager & C. Clother offer one of their most minimalist and cryptic print editions yet with ‘Circle Drawings’. The story goes, Trager brought home interesting pieces of trash found on his trips to Europe and Morocco, then passed these scraps on to Clother who produced illustrations in his amazing style over their textured surfaces. These originals were then collected in this beautifully bound 16-page zine; it’s circular-image motif providing tiny, yet significant, portals into the minds & hearts of these premier artists.

Limited & hand-numbered edition of 80 books, and we have only a few!

Magic Lantern / Ben Nash — split 12” (Blackest Rainbow)

“A split LP that sees cosmic psych overlords Magic Lantern deliver two tracks of sublime hypnotic kosmische underwater psych, and Ben Nash turns in three tracks of cosmic drones. Very limited too!” — Piccadilly Records

Magic Lantern / The Hop Frog Kollectiv — split 12"

Magic Lantern / The Hop Frog Kollectiv — split 12” (URCK Records)

“Magic Lantern's side was recorded for Ukulele, Guitar, Flute, Piano, Bells, Hand Drums & Voices….The magic created by the interweaving flute and string melodies creates an epic soundtrack to an Atlantis like Hesse-esque world that'll take you to the outer places you've always needed to explore. The Hop-Frog Kollectiv's side is based on recordings on Silvertone and Hammond organs donated by Shea M. Gauer of OPEN Books and features Yanqin (Chinese dulcimer), Ruan (moon guitar), Been, electric guitar, midi guitar & flutes. The title comes from the regionally known name of three clans in the Atakora Mountains of the Sahara desert who’s ancestral and family ties govern their society through their belief that the dead are permanently among us and constantly influencing us.” — URCK Records
