The New Creation - Troubled (1970)

"The New Creation was born in 1970 when Chris Towers, an unknown guitarist from Vancouver, decided to form a Christian rock group with Lorna Towers as lead singer and Janet Tiessen on drums. Scared by reports of the hippie excesses of the Manson/Altamont era, Lorna Towers wrote doom-laden, apocalyptic lyrics for the New Creation's aptly titled album, Troubled. The band was unpolished, yet somehow captured a unique lo-fi sound comparable to a hybrid of the Velvet Underground and the Shaggs." (Female Vocals)

Discolor - Soundbath Installation (1999)

Gentle, relaxed, floating inner space music for your mind on the excellent 2nd album of Stefan Lienemann's (ex-Shiny Gnomes, Fit + Limo) sideproject. Layers of guitar augmented by beautiful string sounds, an 11 min. spacelounge jam by the classic Shiny Gnomes crew, a secret hommage to Can, pastoral ambient atmospheres reminiscent of Amp/FSA. This soundbath will shift and drift peacefully into the new century. Link
