Thanks to Ashley for these - both fantastic records.  

The winning bidder will receive:

Ashley Paul 'Line the Clouds' - aqua coloured vinyl

Multi-faceted composer and performer Ashley Paul releases her new LP 'Line the Clouds' on Brooklyn's ReL records. A hyper-intuitive record, where off-kilter instrumentation meets beautifully crafted melodies to convey the very essence of 'musicality', 'Line the clouds' contains 44.18 minutes of sonic paradoxes and dichotomies. Stirring up a zephyr of twelve blissfully cacophonous sounds - singular moments of an indivisible whole the focus is on guitar, voice and saxophone, but Ashley also employs everything from flute, clarinet, guitar, bells, percussion and prepared strings in her melodic endeavours which simultaneously plugs in the ghost of american song

Aster (Ashley Paul/ Eli Keszler duo) - 'Things That Just Happen' 
"Things That Just Happen is the 2nd full length release by the duo of Ashley Paul and Eli Keszler. A longstanding collaboration, this record incapsulates a merging of the off kilter, quiet and fragile song based work of Ashley with the decisive and material based sound which can be seen in the duos live performances. The album begins with and is framed by a multi part suite of pieces based around bowed crotales and saxophone. simple in materials, with no electronic processing, the overtone and harmonics produced by the duo is both isolating, rich, alien and challenging. Meanwhile, songs creep in throughout the record, featuring Ashley and Eli's guitar duos and responsive and dynamic saxophone and drum set accompanying Ashley's singing. Things That Just Happen is a powerful take on the unusual dynamic of song based melody, and psycho acoustic experimentation. A limited pressing on heavy 200 grm vinyl with insert and printed drawings."
