16 - Deep Cuts from Dark Clouds (Red) (LP)
Limited edition of only 500 copies on red vinyl!
Southern California’s godfathers of bum-out 16 return with another masterpiece of bleakness on ‘Deep Cuts From Dark Clouds’. 16 maintain their position atop the mountain of sludge-metal. What has always set 16 apart from their doom and sludge contemporaries has been their ability to set the utter bleakness of singer Cris Jerue’s lyrics to undeniably catchy and heavy riffs and grooves and ‘Deep Cuts From Dark Clouds’ finds the band absolutely perfecting this already addictive combo. Never has extreme depression and despair sounded so good!

35007 - Liquid (IMPORT) (LP)
No song on this album can be judged by listening to a 2min sample. Each of them is about 10mins long and full of diversity and incredible flips of moods. You can start by listening to the sound of waves and next thing you know you're facing some deep, powerful riffs. Music on this album is emotions transported by musical instruments, samples and musical genius of 35007. Yes, file this under Masterpiece!!!
35007 is the code name for a quintet with a unique sound. Ranging from firm grooves drenched in multiple layers of sound and hypnotic riffs to flowing soundscapes. A fine combination of past and future in influences and technique. 2001 marked the appearance of 35007 MARK IV as well as the shift to even more hypnotic instrumental terrain. It goes beyond the conventional rock formula and astonished critics and audience. The most recent sonic constructions are captured on the FULLY INSTRUMENTAL sound track "Liquid". Be prepared, as 35007 catapults your head into the next dimension. 35007 is a state of mind.
Once, when I was 19, I took a whole lotta shrooms and listened to Sky Valley over and over, and had a great trip on it... "Liquid" gives me that feeling WITHOUT the drugs... I can't wait to try it with the drugs :) For current 35007 fans, it's better than Sea of Tranquility... and for new fans it's the best instrumental psychedelic music I've ever heard... It's definitely in my top five releases of the year.
35007 - Phase V (IMPORT) (LP)
Deluxe gatefold sleeve.
If you’ve heard Liquid and the earlier EP, Sea of Tranquility, you can form some expectations without being way off. However, rather than putting out re-hashed material, the band goes further and delivers an album that is fresh and captivating in its own self. While the overall feel of Liquid was mellow, Phase V feels simply heavier. There is also plenty of variations, psychedelia, even groove. This album is a success on many levels. Not only did 35007 maintain their position by putting out yet another excellent, flawless album, but they’ve managed to fill that void in music that needs psyche provoking sounds, beautiful yet powerful melodies, perfect arrangement and masterful execution. This is the job only 35007 can do. And that’s what makes them and their latest album so special. They’ve delivered plenty of amazing material and although each of their previous four albums is nothing short of a masterpiece, Phase V might yet be hailed as their best.
Phase V is decidedly more mellow than Liquid and also free of long buildups. It really is a joy to listen to. It's seems to me to have a huge Pink Floyd influence with the keyboards, delicate guitar and stong basslines and of course the intricate layering and effects. If you've ever had any doubt about 35007 then Phase V will wash them away. Pelican? Karma to Burn? HA! Step forth 35007, for you are the new kings of instrumentalism!
It follows in the band's progression from their earlier work to Liquid. It is flowing, yet heavy, and very melodic. A few other things I really like about this album (and band) are their use of tempos and dynamics. The album builds to a crescendo near the end, swelling and then you are let down gracefully by the last track.
