Here are the five albums that launched a hundred US freak folk bands: The Incredible String Band, The 5000 Spirits Or The Layers Of The Onion, The Hangman's Beautiful Daughter, Wee Tam and The Big Huge.

This is the three legendary albums by this very, very experimental, very very early avant group (1967-68) exploring sound collage, mixed media and much more. NOT on the NWW list, probably only because they were too obscure for them to even know about them!

Very good, AM radio sound and very interesting to hear Charles in a typical nightclub setting between his greatest bands and in a period not normally considered his finest (well, it isn't, actually), but it's Charles and he was one of the greatest bandleaders and composers of the 20th century, so yeah, it's still brilliant and fans still need it!

"Angels And Daemons At Play is the fourth installment in the ongoing Motorpsycho luxury box-set reissue program. While almost every Motorpsycho release is, in one way or another, a step forward, backwards, sideways, or most often everything at once, Angels And Daemons At Play, originally released in 1997, is probably their first coming-of-age album. Following on the heels of 1995's more streamlined Blissard, AADAP is the typically stubborn response from a band refusing to be categorized. Thus, it is...

"A four-hour work, recorded at Jim O'Rourke's studio, Steamroom, between 2017 and 2018. Detailed and delicate electronic layers, processed instruments, and ambiguous field recordings come together in a slow-moving, fascinating kaleidoscope with multiple reflections and wrong turns, always in a constant state of flux. The finely crafted art of subterfuge. The four-CD set To Magnetize Money and Catch a Roving Eye is a hypnotic, multi-faceted, labyrinthine piece which flows as slowly as a river while....
