Raga Virga (Live At Montalbâne 17.6.2011)
**2019 stock* * Indian Dhrupad songs meet the chants of Hildegard of Bingen: this extraordinary encounter took place in 2011 at the Montalbâne Festival. It was a successful experiment in a concert that linked together two worlds that at first glance have nothing in common. But this is deceptive, since both musical worlds follow the rules of modal music and can thus lay, intertwine, and harmonize wonderfully with one another. And both worlds come from the context of contemplation in monasteries a…

One of the absolute favorite albums of the last 10-15 years in the IDDB Gothenburg HQ, and Fördämning Arkiv are extremely proud to now actually be a small part of this album's legacy. Over the seven tracks, Idea Fire Company core members Karla Borecky and Scott Foust were joined by Jessi Leigh Swenson and Meara O'Reilly as well as Frans de Waard, Graham Lam…

Blod & Miljö (7")
**200 copies** Inevitable collaboration from Arv & Miljö and Blod, two decent examples of the Gothenburgian bullheadedness that has occured around the FFFM/never gonna fit in circles in town. A weird 9-minute collage split up over two 45rpm sides, cuts from the past fades in and out with Svensk Sommar I Stilla Frid session leftovers straight from the floor tangled up with spicy snippets from limited to 14 cassettes, some 2018 live action and newly recorded nonsense. It's a poor man's mash up, an…

Suns Movement Across Darkening Skies (7")
**200 copies** Unearthed 1993 recordings caught on melting master tapes in the back of a second hand bookshop in Hamilton, New Zealand. A rare and temporary teen heat trio-incarnation of Armpit, which besides Clayton Noone and Jon Arcus also had Gordon/Nodrog joining in on drums. Four or five tracks were apparently recorded with this line up that also performed live once or twice. Some twenty-five years later, the hazy magic that occured in the back of that bookshop falls in somewhere in the mid…

He uses his own instruments, crudely assembled from materials such as reeds, whistles, bin bags, fans, and air compressors, alongside loose performative structures, to respond to places and situations. He plays in Al Fresco (with Lia Mazzari and Tom White) and regularly collaborates with Ben Pritchard, he has a…

Precious Waste In Our Wake (full title written nowhere: "The Fucking Terrible Receding Shapes, We Shed Precious Waste In Our Wake") is an endlessly beautiful, dense, and chaotic crawl through so many forms it can be difficult to ascertain what is actually at play here. Ostensibly a "rock" band carved from the same plank as pre…
