New Distro

Distro News & Updates

In a very short amount of time, as everything is in the mail and headed where it needs to be, there will be three new tapes available at a couple of other locations.

This new batch of Excavation Series (9, 10 & 11) includes the continuation of Phong Tran’s All India Radio taped archive recordings seeing the light, as well as Ian Nagoski’s rare and out of print Central Javanese gamelan pieces recorded by Jacques Brunet becoming available again in a tape-only edition (no digital at all on this one, sorry). Robert Millis’ personal field recordings in Sri Lanka and India, as well as his 78RPM collection get their proper dusting off, and add to the final perfect piece for this treasure chest of varying musical highlights. Trust me on this, this is a very exciting batch of releases.

New writing and details for each new tape will follow shortly.

If copies are unavailable at our new distro choices, do check back in with us as we’ll ship anywhere and we can maybe talk down the price a bit for you as International shipping can climb pretty fast. If curious, checking in with us at any time is more than cool. We love mail. You can email my powermoveslabel (at) gmail (dot) com account, or hit up our new excavationseries (at) gmail (dot) com account and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can. International shipping and individual tape costs through us will be 18 bucks CAD, so it still isn’t crazy, crazy, if you were unsteady about waiting it out, etc.

On with the news then, you shout.

Crow Versus Crow continues to be our UK specialist. He’ll have copies of each new tape and we may end up re-stocking with him if things go fast. Andy can be reached at crow_versus_crow (at) hotmail (dot) co (dot) uk if you wanted to lock something down ahead of time.

More Mars located in Greece have taken on distro for us too, they’ll have a few copies of each tape as well, and they’ll cover the Euro end of the spectrum. They should have copies soon as well.

We’re really stoked to have these two aboard and they are doing us a great service by helping spread the word and sharing in what we do. We’re humbled by their interest and participation. So support these outlets if you can, regardless of our tiny little operation.

From us, me and Phong, we hope you can find time for these new tapes. Thanks for reading.


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…
