Delver and Amanda are characters who appear and interact throughout the album, which follows a simple boy-meets-girl storyline. There’s also a cameo by another character, Ray.   A pair of  multi-section instrumental pieces – “Telescope” – bookend the story, while “Incubate” draws on the same source material.   Lyrics and more available at http://unthunk.ca

We've released two of Peter's album on Happy Puppy in the past, and now this third release from him literally goes further back into the past. Musical influenced by Peter's Irish ancestry, The Great Famine is a dark and serious concept album focusing on the period of 1845-1849 in Ireland, where "the indisputable fact that huge quantities of food were exported from Ireland to England throughout the period when the people of Ireland were dying of starvation."

Fields is the third album released by the Italian one-man-act Bessemerr. Under the shell of noisy electro-dub and electro-acoustic suggestions,the entire work is inspired by the futurist artist Ardengo Soffici : like his poetry, Fields tries to re-create the junction between the profound empathy with the homeland (Tuscany: the same for both) and the impulse to dynamism, a typical futurist feature.

Logan Whitehurst began uploading his original songs to mp3.com back in 1997, and gained a strong online following for his music. Regularly played on Dr. Demento and often compared to the likes of They Might Be Giants, Logan sadly passed away from a brain tumour at the age of 29. Happy Puppy Records is proud to present this sampler of Logan's music, culled from his many albums.

Here is an assortment of pieces gathered from various sources. Most of them originate through my typical process, which is to develop the score while solving a compositional problem. Several of the pieces began as character studies. To get hold of the character of interest, I often wrote some words to start. Others address structural challenges; such pieces can begin by sketching an overall shape or fragment of modal polyphony. For some, I have forgotten what the problem was now that piece is...

"The Gold Room" was created using a combination of audio manipulation techniques inspired by the experiments of Brian Joseph Davis and Alvin Lucier. Each piece is the result of playing all the songs from a particular artists 'gold collection' (or greatest hits release) simultaneously. The sound is then played back to itself over and over (often over a hundred times at least) as if it were playing a room over loudspeakers, adding a new layer of natural room reverb with every pass....

Another EP of crazy covers, from Canada's FUDGE. On this outing, Fudge takes on fellow Canuck Gino Vannelli, Angel Corpus Christi, and Kenni Woods. Fudge also rocks up Nino Tempo & April Stevens super-long title "I've Been Carrying A Torch For You So Long That I've Burned A Great Big Hole In My Heart", and if that wasn't enough...a Shaggs cover that is incredibly different, but rendered with heart.

The Cosmopolitans were legendary on the Winnipeg public access scene from the mid 1980s for over 20 years. The musical duo of Marion Clemens and Louise Wynberg had the longest running show on VPW Channel 11 in Winnipeg, where once a week they would play their favourite songs (mostly from Louise's memory) sometimes in the studio and sometimes on location with Marion on drums and Louise on keyboards and vocals. This album is comprised of two audio cassettes I made of the show, circa 1995....

Scrap Heap makes his debut on Happy Puppy with the experimental noise EP Outset. Scott Graue, the man behind Scrap Heap, is also a fellow netlabeler and propriator of Oceanbase label. Unlike a lot of noise music produced, Scott's approach to taking a single solitary sample and stretching, expanding and morphing it beyond it's original form, is intelligent and dynamic. Using distortion and tones as percussion, the sound constantly moves and keeps you guessing and interested in what will happen...

Recently, I came across this commercial release and wondered if it would be possible to create a version using only tracks available for free download online (Creative Commons licensed tracks) since many of the original composers are no longer with us. Turns out, it is possible! Thanks to a variety of online classical search engines (and the gracious permission of all the ensembles and artists for allowing redistribution), I am very proud to present this collection, which I will refer to as The...

Happy Puppy is proud to announce the re-release of a very rare LP from 1972 by unknown German electronic artist Maximilian Torsten. Originally a privately-pressed vinyl record, Namoon is an ambient and minimalist sonic treat composed of two long songs, split up into movements. Recorded in his basement studio with home-made equipment, Max created the music during late-night sessions inspired by his heroes Jon Appleton, Tangerine Dream, Silver Apples, early Kraftwerk and White Noise from 1970-72....

After releasing his first single on Happy Puppy last year, Origami Repetika is back with his first mini-LP for us. The man behind Origami Repetika is Adam Sigmund, who is a member of the Origami Republika collective, and now is also a member of the South Jersey SoundFont Collective (SJSFC). There's lots of bright and sunny sounds in these bouncy chip-tunes, and would probably do well if you were looking for chipmusic to exercise to - case in point, the song "Sunny Morning Exercise...

The first volume in a series of ring-tones (or many other uses). They are edited for continuous looping, or can be played once, depending on user's preferences.

much, is a side project by Zach Bridier. Instead of exploring in experimental IDMish electronic music in Captive Portal, Zach goes in singer/songwriter mode. Happy Puppy Records prez Lee Rosevere calls it a "nice blend of electronica, hip hoppy samples, acoustic instruments and vocoders, etc." That's probably the best way to describe the music of much,.

This project began over 2 years ago, when Gurdonark posted a tweet to MrDoob's online art-site Harmony, and I suggested we each draw four pictures, and then other had to compose a piece of music to match the drawings.  Through many delays (including a cross-country move for myself) the drawings and songs were completed and you can see each drawing by clicking on the title of the song. If the music is by Gurdonark, the corresponding drawing is by Lee, and vise versa.  Gurdonark: ...

Yes, it's another album by Cagey House that defies description. Literally, every time Dave Keifer sends me his latest creation, I have no idea what to expect. When going through his catalog, each album sounds very different from others, but they also all share a common logic (as I found with his previous release) - an identifiable trait that follows through within its own universe. In other words, just download it and listen. Aloha Moonmen features many layers of playing with samples, and...
