kHz - 1004 — The Alternative Particle Choir - The Black Hole Diaries
In the summer of 2017, W. David Oliphant, Alan Bishop, and Joel Robinson came together to create a three sided LP that redefines the concept of 'sun damaged' often ascribed to Arizona sounds. This release brought W. David Oliphant, Bob Anderson, and Ryan J. Bruce together to start this Bisbee, Arizona-based record label.
kHz - 1003 — Sunn Trio - Electric Esoterica
'Electric Esoterica' adds to Sunn Trio's growing catalogue and follows 2018's "Fayrus' on Unrock Records. This Phoenix group helps keep a sound tradition going in the valley while forging an entirely new path. Sunn Trio will be touring during the Fall of 2019 on the heels of this release. First experiments in a "real" studio.
kHz - 1002 — Sun City Girls - Live At The Sky Church - September 3, 2004
'Live at the Sky Church' is the Sun City Girls's provocative performance at the Experience Music Project in Seattle on September 3, 2004. One of only a few recordings to be released after Sun City Girls disbanded in 2007.
kHz - 1001 — Sir Richard Bishop and W. David Oliphant - Beyond All Defects
This was composed and recorded live in the studio in Phoenix, AZ in December of 2011. The sonic landscapes presented here find their origins in Tibet, and are heavily inspired by Tibetan Buddhism -- specifically the body of teachings known as Dzogchen. The recording was mastered by Mark Gergis in the summer of 2018. Limited edition clear 180g vinyl.
Forthcoming in Spring and Summer 2021
kHz - 1006 -- Derek Monypeny - The Hand as Dealt
The Hand as Dealt is a double LP release with limited edition 7 inch. The record was recorded in Yucca Valley and Joshua Tree, California and is inspired by and dedicated to Umm Kulthum, Terry Riley, Alice Coltrane, and Don Cherry. Monypeny, who was born and raised in Yuma, has spent time in the Freak of Araby Ensemble with Richard Bishop and the trio ALTO!. This creative solo progression is due in June 2020.
kHz - 1007 -- Algae & Tentacles - The Mouth is a Resonant Field
The Mouth Is a Resonant Field brings together a variety of approaches to the mouth as a space for resonance. Stretching between feedback improvisation and folk song form, this music reaches into the inchoate space within, around, and under the common field of human endeavor we think of as singing, as song. Songs are machines, too, and here they are in conversation with and plugged into a lungs-throat-mouth-microphone-electricity-amplifier assemblage.
kHz - 1008 -- Sunn Trio - TBD
Sunn Trio enters the studio with Gene Tripp to record this moment in time. Sunn Trio's growing discography shows the strength of Joel Robinson's composition and the exchange between three incredible musicians. Sunn Trio wants you to listen. Just don't be passive.
