Adam Payne - Famous Blondes LP

The wonderful new LP from Adam Payne! Years in the making, Famous Blondes is out now!

On Famous Blondes, Adam Payne summons up an imaginary internal myth-making Los Angeles, standing over-dressed, unshod, & sun-caked. No genre, style, or sound is hands-off. There's the late-night folk funk of "Tell Me" & "Nightmare" , the ham-fisted fey glam of "Eyes of the World", the neon go-kart slow burner "U. Angel", even doo-wop filth in "Open Up". While he reaches back to the origins of rock ‘n’ roll, before the confusion of tongues, this LP concurrently stands as a tribute to the present tense. Denuded of pomp, the free-range honeyed melodies blow from every bodily humor. Rinky dink keys tap along the highway shoulder. Layered guitar leads tunnel through alien lakeside causeways. Sampled rhythms tumble down the chaparral.

Over the last 13 years, he's had over a dozen releases while fronting the slippery and misaligned "live-action-psychedelic-mix-tape-of-a-band", Residual Echoes. Ever the worker, this multi-instrumentalist also spends time working with a list of seemingly disparate artists including but not limited to 6 Organs of Admttance, Gun Outfit, King Tuff, Lorelle Meets The Obsolete, Cass McCombs, & Hepa/Titus.

As one listens, a multitude emerges: Egyptian princesses, ice cream men, cigarette girls and hijras dance in a multiracial, beach-salted crowd acculturated to the polyglot musics of the La Brea Tar Pits and Angeles Forest. Everyone is right on time. These ten songs are hard cash in the economy of souls. You can’t escape your parents’ record collection by listening to vaporwave, because vaporwave has taken its place in the eternal order. It’s a pity postmodernism can suck, but at least there's this disc for a consolation prize....You can almost picture him streaking the Malibu Mountain Colony houses of Herbie Hancock and the late Ronnie Montrose, pausing only to eat their lunches.

Hiiragi Fukuda - Personal Server (CS)

More gold from Mr. Fukuda! A collection of home recorded solo guitar pieces (or Guitar Diary as Hiiragi puts it). Very raw and sparse but with all the power and emotional weight that those in the know have come so expect from Hiiragi. Lucky for us he has had new releases coming more frequently including a re-release of the Seacide tape on LP from Trouble In Mind and a fresh new 7" of My Turntable is Sloow outtakes that Selection brought to you in conjunction with the legendary Holy Mountain label.
Personal Server was meant as a palate cleanser for an upcoming brand new solo LP! More news on that as it is revealed. Perfect vibes for a late dark night.

Sadahiro Yamada - May Rock N’ Roller Be In The World (CS)

A quick follow up to last years underground (far, underground) favorite, OK To Exist Doing Nothing. This time out it's just Yamada on Vox and Guitars, our man in Japan Hiiragi Fukuda on Bass and Synth accompanied by Mr. Rhythm Box, a Roland TR-33. Hypnotic boogies from space, spare and raw! A different vein than OK, but deeply satisfying.
Expect more from Yamada in the future!!! Let's all feast on this first.

Hiiragi Fukuda - Dump B/W Don't Worry Be Slow (7")

Another blast from our hero Hiiragi Fukuda! From the My Turntable Is Slow sessions we offer two more gems. This time as a split release with the revered label Holy Mountain.

"Dump" (and its B-side "Don't Worry Be Slow") is the single with massive guitar solos that Hiiragi Fukuda's masterpiece of late night mellow My Turntable is Slow LP could not contain. Both songs have an earlier in the evening swagger that make them both as complimentary to Hiiragi's LP as "Suspicious Minds" is to The Memphis Album. Limited to 300 copies and only available from Selection Records, Holy Mountain and Mr Fukuda himself." - Holy Mountain

Sadahiro Yamada - OK To Exist Doing Nothing (LP)

Selection super session Japanese style. Live and on fire in Tokyo 2004.
We have Selection's own Hiiragi Fukuda on drums and Yuka Ijichi on blazing guitars along with Kiyohiro "Doronco" Takada (Les Rallizes Denudes!) on bass and of course the star of the show, Sadahiro Yamada (visionary and owner of the fine Cho Yamada Dou record store in Kokubunji, Tokyo.) fully up front on guitar and vocals.
An intense night of raw psychedelia (thankfully) recorded for your pleasure. Will excite fans of Les Rallizes Denudes, Doronco Gumo, Pre-blueswailing era Major Stars and most guitar bands on P.S.F. Records.

But don't just take my word for it....

Price: $13.00

Residual Echoes - Incredible Feets (CS)

Residual Echoes have been spending the last few years at home,
woodshedding and getting way out in the inner mind.
Selection is damn proud to have the fruits of this fertile period to see the light.
6 tracks (56 mins!) of sun drenched, fuzzed out guitar mauraudings
that venture between paranoid and aggro to peaceful and even sweet.
Primitive beats keep up most of the time.
Recorded at home in early 2012 this is the first full length Residual
Echoes release in two years.
Selection will also be releasing a new solo LP from Adam Payne (that's
MR. Residual Echoes to you!) Early 2013.
