Conceived whilst wandering through the iron bark forests and gold fields of country Victoria the official debut by Melbourne’s Hour House gifts a musical blueprint marinated in mystery, beauty, sound and song. Hour House is the Melbourne based duo of Mark Leacy and Sam Kenna, formerly of the Newcastle based outfit Castings. Penultimate Press is proud to release their official debut LP Chiltern.

In the late 1970s Paul Buck initiated a series of cassette releases tied to his magazines Curtains and Twisted Wrist. Of a projected series, only a couple saw the light of day, made to order from master tapes and given handwritten labels.
It’s with the greatest pleasure that Vitrine announces its next release, ‘The Period Before Christmas / No Springs Attached,’ a cassette from the distinguished British musician and sound artist, Adam Bohman.
Vitrine soldiers onward into 2015 with Armchair Electronics, the next release from No Intention. The aesthetic follow-up to 2013’s Debris Music, Armchair Electronics offers two side-long forays into tape redundancy, vocal collusion and bedside non-music. This cassette finds the project disengaging from the conceit of craft to focus on pugilistic sound poetry and dilettante field recording.
Kye is proud to present the release of 'To Be Continued', a previously unpublished 1973 performance, documenting the first meeting of Joe McPhee and John Snyder. "On a Sunday afternoon in the summer of 1973, a group of mostly non-professional musicians/music lovers, literally friends and neighbors came together to present a concert in a communal ritual ANCIENT TO THE FUTURE, for friends and neighbors at Holy Cross Monastery in West Park, NY.
