With the departure of long time bass/drum duo Shimura Koji and Tsuyama Atsushi, AMT now have a new rhythm section featuring two young Japanese musicians, Satoshima Nani on drums and S/T on bass. Thus, Wake To A New Dawn of Another Astro Era is the first record in the second chapter of this legendary Japanese psychedelic rock group.

"Japan's psychedelic troubadours return with a new album focusing on the folksier galaxy of their tripped-out universe. Highlighting new vocalist Jyonson Tsu, Acid Mothers Temple put the acid back in acid folk with this release! Upping the ante is Geoff Leigh (Henry Cow, Hatfield & The North, Univers Zero) on all tracks! Limited edition of only 500 CDs made!”

"New 2nd album by the japanese AMT trio, an outfit led by Magic Aum GiGi alias Jerome Genin, Fractal owner for the fake secret. The Soul of a Mountain Wolf is a concept album, short and definitely ROCK dominated by wild fuzz psychedelic guitar."

"Without a doubt, this is one of the holy grails of the Japanese early seventies lysergic psych scene, together with Speed Glue & Shinki, Sato Masahiko & Soundbreakers and People/Ceremony.
Privately released in a tiny edition on the Oz Records label way back in 1973, the original artifact was and is till this day the only legitimate recording on vinyl to feature the Rallizes and Acid Seven, in addition to a side each from Minami Masato and the legendary Taj Mahal Travellers.
New double-CD ...

The first release of these live recordings from January, 1979, by this French, instrumental, symphonic rock band who only released one album during their lifetime (in 1978).
Reasonably good sound for 40 year old tapes and a further exploration of a very French sound a bit reminiscent of Wappasou.

This is a very, very good return to form and sound for The Pyramids. If you love the 70s stuff by The Pyramids, this spiritual jazz work will similarly thrill!

"The brand new album from cosmic jazz travellers The Pyramids, led by saxophonist Idris Ackamoor, An Angel Fell.
Produced by Malcolm Catto of The Heliocentrics, the album was recorded during an intense week at Quatermass studios in London and is one of the deepest, richest works yet from a band reaching their highest creative peak...

“This album celebrates the 1977 band TWINS, that consisted of Bruce Ackley, Eugene Chadbourne, Henry Kaiser, and John Zorn. Featuring the usual instrumentation of two reeds and two guitars, it pre-dated they New York Downtown scene that was to follow. Ackley and Kaiser wanted to re-visit the original repertoire and approach of this quartet, but found it unlikely that the original members could be reunited for such a project. Grabbing their pals Fred Frith and Aram Shelton, they entered the studio to...

Yes, after something like 40 years, Acqua Fragile return and it's genuinely them; I've heard this and fans of their original albums, as well as 70s Rock Progressivo Italiano will not be disappointed!

"A brand new album by Italian Progressive Rock legends Acqua Fragile. Along with compatriots PFM (for whom Bernard Lanzetti’s stunning vocal prowess graced several classic albums), Acqua Fragile were true progressive rock pioneers in the 1970s.
A New Chant features original members Piero Canavera.

Acqua Fragile only made 2 albums before they broke up when their singer Bernardo Lanzetti joined P.F.M. They never had too much success during their lifetime, but their albums have a nice sorta P.F.M-styled charm. This is their first album, & most...

“An unknown and precious album recorded in 1975 by two friends who recorded one side each, they made just two acetates and then handmade beautiful covers from two enlargements of a photograph of the Isles of St Kilda.
Side one is a neo classical prog rock epic in the style of Renaissance and Continuum, inspired by the wild and pagan isles of St Kilda where, as a 16 yr old, the composer Peter McKerrow was taken by military launch to conduct a census on the rare Soay Sheep that live there. A storm...

“Peter McKerrow revisits the experimental electronic composition he made in 1975 after a life altering trip to the Isle of St Kilda. He worked on the piece through the decades and here he presents the final composition - and as a companion piece a second experimental work inspired by underwater experiences near the Isles of Scilly.
Experimental progressive soundscapes only for the adventurous listener.”

From Sardinia, an original project dedicated to female polyphonic singing. Songs of love and sacred songs, lullabies and popular dances, funeral laments and serenedes. A polyphonic quintet of fascinating female voices joined by a great expounder of Sar...

His excellent new album "to the light" with bass player André Pousaz and drummer Michi Stulz has a clear, unique identity.

Aera were a long running German fusion band who recorded from the 70s and into the 80s. Even in the 80s, not a great time for fusion, they remained a quality outfit. This is a reissue of their first two releases, from 1975 and 1976.

“Both their albums on 1 CD. Rooted in the Bavarian tradition of jazz rock oriented bands like Embryo, Missus Beastly, Munju etc. A highly inventive fusion band with strong percussion, driving rhythms and lots of space for solos on guitar, sax and flute.”
