New Distro Items from Chemical Imbalance

First update in a while. Just loaded the webstore with some new distro tapes and CDrs from the great and newish Sydney label, Chemical Imbalance. Excellent and varied sounds presented in meticulous constructed packages.  Get them right here in the store.

Here's what you find: 

Jeremy Hegge "Amphibian Noise Songs From Mountains of Kroombit Tops" CS
Gorgeous and engaging amphibious textures from the comfort of your own living room. In the words of the man himself: "as i stood by this pond on my first hot, humid night in kroombit, after a long drive from brisbane, my ears distorted with an intensity i've never experienced before or since due to the sonics of the earth. a band of dusky toadlets, northern banjo frogs, eastern dwarf tree frogs, rocket frogs, cane toads. these are the sounds of the wet season, recorded in february, 2016." 

Vavenge "Vavenge III" CS
Nick Dan (xNoBBQx, Antipan, Galah Galah Galah, etc) and Nicola Morton (Bad Intentions, Life Groove Orchestra, Club Sound Witches, etc) lead a dual synth/coed affected vocal approximation of what pop music might sound on Jupiter. Where the gravity reduces sound to a thick weighty stew.   Anthony Guerra (Love Chants, Mysteries Of Love, etc) drags a bass bluntly through the sludge while Matt Earle's (xNoBBQx, Muura, etc) sampled percussion adds an arrhythmic logic to the proceedings.

The Lost Domain "Blues and the Abstract Truth" CDr
Mournfully heady and spaced out jams on this new live recording from. Beefhart meets Partch filtered through Ayler in Lorrach/Paris.

Two Poor Boys "The Final Session-July 2009" CDr 
The Lost Domain in the duo mode of John Henry Calvinist and Ragtime Frank. Eleven agitated and raving ragers.

The Drunken Boat "Side Show" CDr
Bouzouki-centric improvised anthems where plodding, let the notes just dissolve type groves bubble over into chaos.  Sometimes the repetitive ripples gather into what be called a song in certain circles.

Wardenburger "O5.16" CDr 
Claustrophobic large group industrial grade improv drones from this longstanding Brisbane collective.
