75DB I WAS REAL Front Cover.jpg

Coming June 28, 2019:

75 Dollar Bill - I WAS REAL 

Deluxe 2LP, Cassette and Digital Download

75 Dollar Bill is one of the essential groups at the heart of NYC's underground. Driven by the telepathic union of Che Chen's microtonal electric guitar and Rick Brown's odd metered percussion their long-form sound is unmistakable and compelling. On their third album I WAS REAL, the group expands in bold new directions, embracing brilliant fuller orchestrations, joyous rockers and entrancing new textures. I WAS REAL is a monumental signature work capturing the group at the peak of their powers.

HOD Front Cover.jpg

A Handful of Dust was founded over three decades ago by two giants of the New Zealand underground, Bruce Russell (The Dead C) and Alastair Galbraith. Rejecting any notion of structure or comfort they’ve ground music to it’s sub-elemental parts. A scraping and howling electricity, spontaneous, unrestrained, physical. Dragging Her Wings of Rusty Knives Includes expanded and unreleased works spanning the group’s history and their first studio recordings since 1995.

Michael Morley  - Heavens Idleness Awaits

Deluxe Gatefold 2LP & Download

TWM-Front-Cover-Square-Small.jpg

Michael Morley has long been acclaimed for his electric guitar and electronic forays in New Zealand’s legendary The Dead C and Gate. On Heavens Idleness Awaits he strips his music to its most elemental state. Recorded at home and using only a single tracked acoustic guitar, Morley creates an intimate and intensely meditative work. Over four side-long tracks, he weaves hypnotic melodic figures that slowly unfurl to reveal a minimalist masterwork and one of his most powerful statements to date.

Jacob Wick - feel

Deluxe LP & Download

Thin Wrist Recordings is proud to present the debut LP by Jacob Wick.

A trumpeter and improviser living in Mexico City, over the last 10 years Wick has become known for deconstructing the instrument itself and any expectations of how it 'should' be played. These explorations focus on sound as it relates to specific spaces and in turn the subtle but profound connections they have to emotions and the body.  The result is a highly personal music that is both unique and immediate, abstract yet undeniably visceral.

 

On feel Wick creates two intense side long improvisations. On the surface they appear to be works of rigorous minimalism; on closer listen they reveal sounds that slowly but constantly shift and evolve. Texture and plosives replace melody and rhythm. Body and breathe become indistinguishable from the instrument,  the moment is stretched and expanded. Each sound is so closely linked that the player and listener are drawn completely into the present. feel is an uncompromising and entirely original album- an intimate sound experience that rewards anyone that chooses to enter.
