Howdy folks,

hope you’re digging the summer!

We have four new tapes out and you can order them through our webstore or by writing to

Personal contact is encouraged, especially with larger orders or trade offers.

And these are the tapes:

Primordial Undermind – Coyote’s Choice Vol. 1. Jacque’s, Boston, MA 8/1/97
Coyotes Choice 1

The first volume in a series of historic live releases by long-standing psych-rock stalwarts Primordial Undermind.

Urthsla – Ingwertee

Feathered Coyote is psyched to release this gorgeous new album by Urthsla, the project of Berlin-based musician Artem Bezukladnikov. Over two lenghty and one shorter track he creatures a vibrant and dense environment of sound, fingerpicked acoustic guitar alternating and mingling with synth/FX drones and soundscapes, the distant-sounding vocals suggesting traces of songs.

Red Cross Stare – Answering Our Own Wave

Second album by Red Cross Stare, the project of Justin Wiggan, Simon Osgathorp and Yvat.
Deep, haunting soundscapes and hypnotic rhythms.

Various Artists – Sounds From A Berry Feast Vol. 4
Compilation tape for Berry Feast 2015 with new and/or exclusive tracks by most of the festival’s artists.

And here’s the tracklist:
Due to some delays with artworks and final masters, the next Feathered Coyote batch is still delayed but should be ready very soon.

But before we drive out to St. Pölten, we’re kicking off the weekend with the third volume of Feathered Coyote’s Tea House at Celeste.

Feathered Coyote’s Tea House Vol. 3
Today, June 4 at Celeste, Jazzkeller, Hamburgerstrasse 10
doors 8 pm, bands start 9 pm

mosque is a collaboration between Oskar May and Kilian Jörg. Oskar May is mainly responsible for beats, base- and synthlines, while Kilian Jörg is mixing, looping and alienating field recordings collected from all over the world. Together this forms voyages, which go beyond the classical field recording, for they do have more or less conventional song structures, but also exceed the classical electronic track. The results are loaded of – more or less intentional – allusions to philosophical, political and other themes and do at the same time incorporate aleatoric strategies into the composition.

DJ I dunno, Ricky Lewis?

That’s it for now, thanks for your reading and hope to see you at Celeste and/or Berry Feast!

Feathered Coyote Fall/Winter Batch Now Available

Hello friends,

After a long delay due to problems with obtaining the blank tapes the new releases will finally be ready to ship in a few days. We’re sorry about the long pre-order phase this time, this was beyond our control. But now five new tapes area ready and poised to illuminate your dark winter days.

And these are the five new zoners:
FCR39 Core of the Coalman – New Chords
Jorge Boehringer’s solo project Core of the Coalman(US/CZ), is at once an open sketchbook, and a collection of compositions perpetually in a state of evolution. Core of the Coalman can be characterized as continuity and discontinuity for viola, voice, and circuits on the border between order and chaos. Sonically diverse and at times explosive in texture, Core of the Coalman emphasizes the physicality of sound in its synesthetic relationships between ear, mind, and environment, with the aim of hearing oneself hearing.

This release features two new long-form compositions, “Migration on the Warm Wing” and “Cloud Chords”.

FCR40 Fajki – resyw
“In short words i can describe this music of mine like: sound of your pocket, spoken truism, rough surface, fake noise, for unto us a child is born, magic casket, filthy tales, lullabies of motherland,broken synthesizer under your bed, savage punk.” That’s what the person behind this project says about this album that was recorded in summer 2013 in Vojbokalo, Russia.

FCR41 BEG – Weltmeister Pakrashi I
We are very proud to present the debut album of this new project by Brecht Ameel (Razen) and Glen Steenkiste (Sylvester Anfang, Hellvete, González & Steenkiste).
Deep, organic drones played on harmonium and accordeon. Acoustic drone blisss guaranteed.

FCR42 Tauusk – Hermit
Tauusk is an instrumental ambient/drone/doom band from Romania focused on evoking and exploring ethereal and ominous soundscapes.
After the self-released debut double album “Refuge” this is the project’s second effort, which finds Tauusk moving into an increasingly guitar-dominated direction.

FCR43 A Berry Feast 2014 – The Compilation
This was originally part of a fundraising project for the last installment of our harvest time festival.
The campaign didn’t do all too well but on the upside this means that you still have a chance to call this compilation full of psychedelic and experimental nuggets your own! The tape is over 90 minutes long and features mostly unreleased and/or exclusive tracks from the likes of Datashock, Primordial Undermind, Sophie Cooper, Mesta, Kot Kot, Sashash Ulz, Hering und seine sieben Sachen, Günter Schlienz, Flamingo Creatures, Ruairi O’Baoighill, Superskin, Cream Team, BOORII, Nine Inch Negl and Bird People.
You don’t want to miss out on this!

All releases are available right from our shop:
