So here's a good one. At Jennie Richie, irr. app. (ext.), and Black Horizons have teamed up again to put out a wet panty-dropper of a release. Nice & thick, sexy slick gloss box, black & gold sticker affixed with moth metamorphosis development depictions. Pair of prints, signed and numbered by the bands, postcard of the cover art. Gold on black galore. Only 66 of these, so they're hard enough to come by. The LP and one of the tapes are previously released on BH's catalog already, so really the only things specific to this box set bundle are the other tape and the rad prints. We'll just graze on that other tape for now.

c33 - exclusive to BH-36.66
Cool as fuck art work. All gold print on metallic flake black. Print on every outward panel. I cant really tell what anything is but there's some aboriginal costumes and some bird-like dinosaurs maybe? Its cool stuff. Nice sleeve within a sleeve style slipcase + insert.
At Jennie Richie gets down with some serious and slightly twisted John Carpenter worship on Automatic White Syndicate Dream (Two Ladies In Japan). Watching Cartoons is almost exactly like it sounds: some wacky orchestral stuff. Keeping The Peace is an automated public service announcement, and then more orchestral haunting.
irr. app. (ext.), The Monsters Are Due On Alder Court is a total psych kraut sludge jam. Begins all smooth and easy going, floating around all atmospheric, nearly whimsical. The drum set creeps in: doing what drumsets do. Shit starts all mellowing down, there's a horses squeal and BAM! Full on Dirge-a-dellic band. irr. app. (ext.) tells the story on the insert liner notes, so I'll transcribe much of it for you and Telly Savalas.

II. irr. app. (ext) - The Monsters Are Due
On Alder Court
In the summer of 2012 I invited my sister to
visit on the vague premise of "getting her
opinion on something", when she arrived I
handed her a guitar and forced her to play it,
which was something she had never
attempted to do before. At first I had her
play to a rhythm track I had created earlier
by using one of her dogs as a hand drum,
then I switched her to a long track played
on a conventional drum kit. After several
runs using a variety of effects settings I
switched her to an electric bass and we
started the process over again. This is the
second track resulting from those sessions
-- mostly using the drum kit recordings, but
a little modified extract of the dog drumming
makes an appearance in the middle
section. Big thanks to my sis, who took up
the challenge with enthusiasm and
unleashed her own brand of rock 'n
Tracy Waldron: all electric guitars and
Teddy the Pomeranian: body drum and
Lucy the Chihuahua squeaks, whines and
M.S. Waldrom: the rest of it
