RECENT ARRIVALS


Hey everyone – last update in 2014 from VT and we got some heavies, kicking off with the remarkable 2xLP from Euro cult/trance orchestra Razen, Remote Hologram, on KRAAK, with a mind-blotting combination of medieval drones and future-inflected ragas. Also got a great live tape from Razen too, Rare Undressed Mare on House Of Alchemy. Long-time coming follow-up to their Siltbreeze debut from Kentucky’s Sapat on LP from Sophomore Lounge. Very limited and already sold out at source live tape from Natural Snow Buildings, Live At Cragg Vale, on Was Ist Das? Excited to welcome premier free jazz label Rogue Art to VT, with great CDs from Evan Parker & Matthew Shipp, Jacques Coursil with Alan Silva, Joelle Leandre & Nicole Mitchell, Roscoe Mitchell and Roscoe Mitchell & Nicole Mitchell’s Black Earth Ensemble.
