New Distro

Label Distro + Swap w/ Crow Versus Crow

With great pleasure I come with radical news:

Power Moves Library/Excavation Series has worked out a small record label-swap distro with the ever-amazing Crow Versus Crow, who have been steadily releasing challenging and beautifully packaged albums of sound art, field recording, drone, minimalism, and on and on, via West Yorkshire, UK.

The label keeps growing into a wild and untamed behemoth, and I’m more than a little psyched to get to work together into the future.

We see eye to eye philosophically and musically and we’re hoping we can share the cookings to new ears and for better, cheaper, more reasonable prices to those already familiar with our work.

I will have a small amount of copies of the new release, the three-headed split/snake that is:

BBBlood, Posset & Stuart Chalmers
delirium cutlet impaste

These lovely CD-R editions will be postpaid and will save fellow Canadians and Americans a few dollars on the shipping costs that are continuing to get way out of hand.

We’re simply trying to pool our resources, and I’m sure we’ll figure things out along the way to make it even tighter, so hang with us at first.

We hope you want to support what we’re doing and you can now do so by grabbing these wonderful releases without the fear of exorbitant game-changing international post prices. It’s such a terrible thought thinking that we’re constantly turning down this amazing music as the post prices ring up the purchase past the point of no return. You want the thing now? You’ll get it at reasonable rates and it’ll feel like the money is spent on the object itself again.

EMAIL to let me know yr interested and to make sure copies are available, then you can PAYPAL (or we can discuss payment) one of these two options:

For Canada, paypal 11 dollars flat, ppd.

For USA, paypal 14 dollars Canadian ($10.50ish USD), ppd.

I should be receiving these this week. Hang tight and we’ll make sure to get you these ASAP when I have them in my mitts.

Around May 7th, the new Excavation Series mixtape, ES 5: A.I.R. Tapes 1, will be our end of the label-swap. I will have more details on that, but UK friends will save for sure.

More to come…



Peter Kris – Jacumba

A blistering swelter of torn speakers flapping like a gang of birds sourced open by digital distortion, cavernous reverb and national park and mountain-like expanse is the beauty, and it’s sand-covered, running down as rubble.

Loner expression first, landscape collection second.

Part the winds while abandoned adobe apparitions of guitar swagger and plectrum-spiked punch create perfect humbled deserted isolationist twang. Hitchhiker good-and-bad on the worth-more.

Welcoming the ghostly Peter Kris to the library’s slowly growing high-ladder stack, where a collection of his blown-out crisp-around-the-edges solo guitar masterworks slipped through the walls into my living room and good headphones and I can’t be more psyched (psych is too easy a descriptor for this radicalism).

When he unbands from the German Army underground lava-flow of productivity, under all kinds of different names, mailing address another possible mirage, the sun gets hottest and those frizzled eyes get shut under the weight of the world.

Say, a natural feeling or aura of being outside, possibly at night when the moon is spying, with possible drug intake, when persona’s intact, we get dismantled electrical six-string hallucinations and player-heavy crescendo in constant minimalist poise and noise.

Drive ahead and bury the yellowed demarcations underneath the wheels, or jump out, not get in, walk alone, go back, turn around, walk in circles… but stay up, following something.

A wall of noise: too easy, acid sun melt: too easy, bad dream decay: getting closer, but it’s all of these things and more: somehow futuristic angular show-how and old-timer highway southern picking. Deadly combo. And one-of-a-kinder.

Very stoked to release PML CDR 04, Jacumba by Peter Kris, and I thank the ghost.

CD-R packages burned and printed here at home in a small run of 27 copies. Prints included in the envelope are original Peter Kris photographs in black-and-white on heavy card stock.

Digital album is available for free download at Bandcamp and Free Music Archive.

From the both of us, we hope you dig it and can pass it on.

Peace and more to come,
