Pro tip for U.S. customers: If slower delivery (up to 10 days) is OK for you, select “USPS Media Mail” during checkout and you could save money on shipping. The only catch is that your shopping cart can only contain CDs, LPs or DVDs. Some books are allowed, but only if they’re not picture books. If you’re buying patches, t-shirts, pins, picture books (Timeless Editions books, for example), or other non-music items, you won’t be offered Media Mail shipping during checkout, even if it’s just one patch in an order of 10 LPs. What to do? The solution is to separate your purchases. Start by putting everything you want – no matter what it is – into your shopping cart. Make a note of the shipping cost, and then remove the non-music items and recalculate the shipping cost. If the Media Mail option is available you can compare the cost vs. shipping everything together. But you’ll still want to know the cost of shipping your non-music items, so you’ll have to empty the shopping cart and put those other items into a cart and look at the shipping cost. It’s extra work, but sometimes two carts (and two separate shipping charges) is better than one.

New Releases at Soleilmoon

MUSLIMGAUZE Wish Of The Flayed
Wish Of The Flayed
$17.50 – CD

Time to come out of the old dusty box for an album by Muslimgauze named ‘Wish of the Flayed’ that has for a long time remained under wraps. Bryn Jones himself gave this album on cassette tape to Steven Wilson (Bass Communion) during their first meeting on the 3rd of june 1996; the album having been recorded the day before. (One day for making a whole album is not so surprising for Muslimgauze…) The master DAT had, seemingly, not been sent to any label, so this recording is the only proof of the existence of the album”. Liimited edition of 300 copies in jewel case. Analog-to-digital conversion by Steven Wilson. [continue…]

RAPOON Sanctus Equinox: Mercury Rising 1
Sanctus Equinox: Mercury Rising 1
$19.00 – CD

In celebration of the 25th anniversary of Rapoon’s existence Dutch label Winter-Light is releasing a trio of new works entitled ‘Mercury Rising’. The trilogy will be comprised of new studio albums, all with exclusive material. The albums will bring a new feel to Rapoon creator Robin Storey’s work, that of a more off world spacious feel, jazzy in parts with a ceremonial thread running throughout. Each album is interlinked by this feel and theme, as the titles suggest, but with each one still having its own unique identity. ‘Sanctus Equinox’ is the first release in the trilogy. [continue…]

MERZBOW Tomarigi
$20.30 – 12 inch EP

PRE-ORDER ITEM. Merzbow’s Tomarigi, Japanese for “Perch” is an exploration into controlled chaos through modular synthesis; approached like a bird of prey, perched on a high branch. Harsh, debilitating tones eked out from pedals and contact mics, in calculated disarray, among repurposed junk and messy circuitry. Chaos and balance, destruction and construction, harmony and dissonance – Merzbow’s Tomarigi is an offering of raw, dadaist, animalistic Harsh Noise. Limited to 300 copies worldwide. [continue…]

COIL Astral Disaster Sessions Un/Finished Musics

Ignited by the fires of Punk that swept through the UK in 1977, CRISIS suddenly extinguished its flame in front of its home crowd in Guildford, Surrey on 10th May, 1980, supporting Magazine and Bauhaus. Despite more shows being planned this intense performance was deemed a fitting place to make The Ends Mystify The Means. CRISIS had played their first show here three years previously and this would be where they played their last. [continue… ]

JENX The Thai Occult: Sak Yant
The Thai Occult: Sak Yant

$43.20 – Book

The art of Sak Yant, the magical tattoos of Thailand, has become a world-wide phenomenon but as yet few have revealed what they actually constitute, what the designs mean, or the languages and the types of ink used, all of which adds to their power. In this new work on the subject, interviews with the makers have revealed their views on the ancient origins, the practices that have to be upheld for them to work as a talisman on the skin and even the practice methods needed to be able to tattoo using the traditional rod. [continue… ]
