Nansemond in stock! (Ed. note Dec. 22: and very quickly, back out of stock)

December 3, 2014 | Nathan Bowles

We've got a very few LP and CD copies of Nathan Bowles' new "Nansemond" in stock. Named for the swampy Southeast Virginia locale where Nathan grew up, Nansemond is a head-first dive into murky water, followed by a sliding run down muddy trails -- smooth and jaunty clawhammer banjo, subliminal piano, wiry guitar runs from Tom Carter and Joseph Dejarnette, rampaging fiddle from Steve Kruger, a couple vocal exclamations amid shape-shifting instrumentals: This is the sound of kaleidoscoping memory colliding with the exhilaration of now, a messy tangle wrestled down and squeezed into microscopic grooves for your listening transfixiation. (Ed. note, Dec. 22: Well, those certainly disappeared quickly)

Black Ribbon, Silver Thread LP is here

November 11, 2014 | Mike & Cara Gangloff

The beautiful-looking and -sounding new vinyl edition of Mike & Cara Gangloff's "Black Ribbon of Death, Silver Thread of LIfe" has landed on these shores -- with deep tones, heavy vinyl, and Jake Blanchard's fantastic artwork presented more properly than it could be at CD scale. A 12-inch tour of little-visited -- even in the Klang catalog -- musical corners, brimming with curiosities and pointing to new sonic worlds.

20 years and counting SALE

August 8, 2014 | Various Artists

Yow -- It's been two decades since Klang Industries leaped for the horizon. To celebrate the sheer unlikeliness of our long orbit we're offering a couple deals on any sound recordings ordered for the next little while -- get more than one cd or lp and take $5 off your order's total price; order our two most shelf-filling-titles-of-the-moment, the Charlambides' remarkable "Rose/Thorn" or the Charlie Parr & Black Twig Pickers fervent "Glory in the Meeting House" -- and take $5 off the price of either. Yes, you can add all the discounts together. Yes, these offers are good for our overseas friends (though we'll still need to work out an adjustment for overseas postage).

You may want to act soon because stock is running out on many of our wares...but there are so new ones on the way that we think you'll enjoy. The cycle continues.

Thanks for your support for all these years.

Eastbound in November
