Two brand new Conspiracy releases are available in our webstore now, both at reduced price of 10€ until September 18th!
First of all the MANINKARI - Psychoide / Participation Mystic cd.
This is the debut EP from Maninkari. Operating out of Paris, this band is gonna be high priority for Conspiracy Records. We were awestruck upon receiving their first demos, and decided to recruit JUSTIN BROADRICK (JESU, Final, Techno Animal, Godflesh) and ROBIN RIMBAUD (SCANNER, Githead) to do a remix of two amazing Maninkari pieces. The result is a very cinematic, mesmerising warm piece of music.
Psychoide; A gorgeous soft cacophony of epic post rock drift and minimal jazzy shuffle. Dense drumming, frenzied strings, wound into tense soundscapes of slow burning shimmer. Godspeed plays the Dirty Three, or maybe Angus Maclise jamming with Chris Corsano, dark and druggy, some sort of glorious mantra-like minimalist dronejazz, with a super cinematic Phillip Glass like coda...
Participation Mystic; Lilting pizzicato strings, underpinned by deep soft swells of shimmering warmth and distant bits of industrial clatter, a slow burning ambient drift that is eventually joined by a simple motorik rhythm, transforming the pulsing ambience into something jazzy and minimal, propulsive and hypnotic, channeling the spirit of Finnish hypnorockers Circle and minimal dronejazz combo the Necks... and again near the end, everything enveloped by intense swarms of frenetic strings... (Andee / aQuarius)
This CDEP is limited to 1000 copies and a nice introduction to a new band who's debut full length is sheduled for release late 2007.

The second release is the SUNBURNED CIRCLE – the Blaze Game CD. (the limited lp will be available soon)
SUNBURNED HAND OF THE MAN is a band in the loose sense of the word; it's better described as a banner under which a collective of musical freaks have gathered. So when they toured Europe in September 2006, and ended up in the same room as Psych/Kraut/Hard-rockers CIRCLE in Tampere-Finland, they decide to jam together and record all of it.
This session was edited down to a total of 40-minutes which wanders ongoing through free folk, psych, improv, spaced out- hippy jamming & noisy-rock bizareness .
The collaboration of both America's & Finland's weirdest, is nothing less than sensational.
The lp will be limited to 750 copies, 250 on orange with black and 500 on black vinyl. All lp's will be 180 gr vinyl and will come in a full colour heavy sleeve with innersleeve and poster. Order and listen to samples here: http://www.conspiracyrecords.com/store/store_detail.php?id=5721
