Born in the high desert of southern California, "Scattered Days" is the final collection of songs written and recorded in the Morongo Basin by Dandy Brown (Hermano and Orquesta del Desierto) as a solo-project.
Still containing all the blues, rock and pop elements of Brown’s earlier productions, Scattered Days is a unique blend of tones and flavors that DB fans have come to expect from his productions. Assembled in Joshua Tree, Palm Springs and Yucca Valley, the album reflects all the emotion and wide open sounds appreciated by those who love collections recorded in the desert.
The 2011 Brethren. Bound by blood. split series brought forth the idea of this cooperation.
Almost every Church of Ra related band contributed one song only.
Each individual track of the recordings was dissected into single instruments, single notes, distant sounds.
All mingled, they sought to become a new language; a new world created and assembled by Treha Sektori.
For this Church of Ra release TREHA SEKTORI created and assembled a new musical body of work, using individual tracks by AMENRA, OATHBREAKER, HESSIAN, THE BLACK HEART REBELLION, PIECES OF QUIET, HIVE DESTRUCTION, SEMBLER DEAH & TREHA SEKTORI
Mitochondrial Sun is NIKLAS SUNDIN (Dark Tranquillity) solo project!
Largely instrumental and featuring everything from Dead Can Dance-like tribal atmospheres to futuristic sci-fi soundscapes.
Among the guest musicians appearing are Dark Tranquillity’s Martin Brändström and renowned cello player Annika Blomfeldt.
The album was recorded in Joshua Tree, California, USA, before Christmas 2006. The 8-track album is a mix of old and new tracks. “Some days I just like to sit outside under the sun with my guitar and sing my songs to myself. It relaxes me. It also reminds me of what my songs are about. ...went to Tony's house when I got back to the desert last October...put up a mic and rolled tape. It took 3 days to make this recording...so we naturally called it Tres Dias. Dig it.”
Reissued by Heavy Psych Sounds in 2018.

"Back in December of 2010, I went into a house in Joshua Tree California to record another solo record. About 4 days into the sessions, I decided to abandon the 8 songs I was working on, told my long time friend and engineer, Tony Mason, to start rolling tape and I proceeded to play drums in my natural improv style. After multiple drum track performances were captured, I then started layering guitars, bass and percussion in the same improvisational spirit. I essentially decided to "jam" by myself for the rest of my scheduled sessions. I decided to call the collective tracks, Jacoozzi. At the time, it reminded me of the feeling of my first solo recording sessions for my first solo release, Jalamanta.... only more "free". "

'Keep Your Cool' is the third solo album by the Kyuss- and Fu Manchu-legend, originally released back in 2003 with Duna Records. Full of the soul and funky laid-back grooves BRANT BJORK is known and loved for, tongue-in-cheek lyrics and sweet guitar licks oozing from the great 70's era vibes, 'Keep YourCool' is still considered as one of BRANT BJORK's accessible and catchiest records to date. Tracks such as 'Hey, Monkey Boy', 'Johnny Called' or 'Gonna Make The Scene' became classics in the stoner rock scene, taken from an album that belongs to every well-sorted BRANT BJORK record collection.
"Jalamanta was a life changing record for me. Its the record that launched my journey as Brant Bjork. Listening to the tapes 20 years later was amazing. Tony Mason and myself were transported back to that moment in time. Jalamanta was a first for both Tony and myself. My first record as a solo artist and his first record as an engineer. We didnt think twice about re-mixing it. With our combined experience over the years, we knew we could take Jalamanta to the place we always wanted it to go..and we did. Dig it."
- Brant Bjork
"This album is a collaborative effort and the sum of its parts. The basic riffs and song structures were done by myself and Gary Arce, but the contributions from Tony Reed, Lisa Alley, Ian Graham, Mario Lalli, Nick Oliveri, Bill Stinson, Per Wiberg and Alain Johannes make this record what it is.
There was never a discussion of what kind of music we wanted to make.
But if I had to describe it there are elements of Soundgarden, Pink Floyd, Yawning Man and Fu Manchu."
Bob Balch of Fu Manchu
