Unrock released the super limited tape Chin Spirits (Durga) from Alvarius B. from last year on a limited 10″ with a special clear 7″ with two unreleased songs. The bundle is limited to 200 copies and only available from Unrock directly. Alvarius B. is an alias from Alan Bishop, who is well known as one part of the experimental rock band Sun City Girls. Under his Alvarius B. moniker he released experimental lo-fi folk songs and instrumentals. My favorite from him is still Baroque Primitiva from 2011. I couldn’t find any audio samples for Chin Spirits, so I added some older stuff from Baroque Primitiva below.

The Details

The next installment in Unrock’s Saraswati series presents a trip into the spiritual wonderland of Alvarius B aka Alan Bishop (Sun City Girls, Invisible Hands) . Deep down heavy Sun City Girls flavored Dada deluxe. Crackling midgets, purist psychedelia. A cocoon of seven colorful, shiny monoliths of essential nonsense, each dirty pearl standing by itself. Limited edition one time pressing. 200 copies are available as an extended edition, featuring a 2-track 7"inch single containing exclusive songs. The single is pressed on clear wax and has an extra full color sleeve. This edition is an Unrock exclusive and only available here. (Preorder. Ships when in stock.)
