  • Vidéo-Aventures "Camera (In Focus) Camera (Al Riparo)" LP

    The elusive allure of Vidéo-Aventures is challenging to capture, and Megaphone/Knock'em Dead's reissue of their second LP, Camera (In Focus) Camera (Al Riparo) (1984, Tago Mago, France), reveals an album with a conviction in paradox that serves only to magnify their mystery. Plunging feverishly where their debut (Musique pour Garçons et Filles, 1979, Recommended Records) traipsed and alighted with informed whimsy, Camera (In Focus) Camera (Al Riparo) retains the duo of Dominique Grimaud and Monique Alba, abetted strikingly (and, often, surprisingly) by Jac BerrocalGuigou Chenevier (Etron Fou Leloublan)Sophie JausserandGilbert Artman (Lard Free,Catalogue, Urban Sax)Cyril Lefebvre, and Daniel Deshays. 160-gram LP. Gatefold sleeve with new artwork.​
    And only at Knock'em Dead can you get this exclusively on clear vinyl with yellow/blue splatter.

  • Stepmother "Calvary Greetings" LP

    Stepmother is Lukas Simonis (Dull Schicksal, VRIL, Coolhaven …), Jeroen Visser (Kazanchis, morFrom …), Bill Gilonis (The Work, The Hat Shoes, Hail …) and David Kerman (5UUs, Present, Thinking Plague, Aranis …). Anglo-American-Dutch post-punk prog rock and experimental soundscapes with a dash of Monty Python thrown in. A reunion of an 80s band that never existed (but should have): twangy guitars, nifty keyboards, zany drumming, vocal histrionics à la The Rutles (well, sort of), lop-sided rhythms, regurgitated spam lyrics. What more could you ask for? The journey we are taken on introduces us to mass murderer Curtis Lemay, Serge Gainsbourg, sex ads, neo-liberal communism, Nigerian online scams, neo-Surrealist blabbering and Dickensian psycho fluff. But the record is much more than a sum of its parts – and it’s beautifully packed to boot, with artwork by Alfred Boland.

  • M.C. Schmidt "Batu Malablab" LP

    Based in Baltimore, M.C. Schmidt is one half of the acclaimed electronic duo Matmos. As half of Matmos, Schmidt has worked with Terry Riley, Bjork, The Kronos Quartet, Peter Rehburg, the INA/GRM, Rrose, Marshall Allen, Horse Lords, People Like Us, Keith Fullerton Whitman, Antony Hegarty, William Basinski and many more. Batu Malablab works a dislocating magic, indulging in a tradition of western fantasy of non-western music. Recalling gamelon-inspired experimental classics such as John Cage's prepared piano work, Can's "Ethnological Forgery Series" and Jon Hassell's "Fourth World" ambient music, Batu Malablab is imaginary global music made in the Baltimore basement studio pictured on the back of the LP/CD. First Solo Album by M.C. Schmidt (Matmos, Bjork) Features appearances by Wobbly and Thomas Dimuzio
