"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."

And is it possible for a title of a record to be longer than the name of this Japanese freak-out, psychedelic band? Apparently!

" A reissue of Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O.'s classic album La Nòvia, originally released in 2001. Recorded at Acid Mothers Temple in May of 2000. One of the best Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O. albums, La Nòvia is an epic forty-minute rendition of an Occitan song by one of the best Japanese psychedelic noise-rock-folk band. This is a slowly evolving and drone-y album with many different and wonderful musical moments all leading to a glorious conclusion. A very...

"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.

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.

First time on CD for this instrumental symphonic rock album, from 1978 by a band who only released this one album during their lifetime. Multi-keyboards, violin/guitar, bass and drums. Very French sounding and reminiscent especially of Wappasou, with hints of Carpe Diem, and an over-all 'underground' sound. In addition to the original album, this includes over 15' of live recordings from 1976.

"There was a fertile tradition in France for instrumental (mainly) symphonic rock in the second half...

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!

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.

“George Adams made only one ECM recording, but it’s a beauty, placing his powerful tenor sax at the front of a talent-packed group, with Adams, Kenny Wheeler and Heinz Sauer all contributing compositions to the programme. “The spirit of Mingus hovers watchfully nearby; Adams is an original, though. His so

“John Luther Adams' Become Desert is a remarkable expansion on the ideas he developed for his Pulitzer-winning (and Grammy-winning) work, Become Ocean. While not necessarily a sequel in the literal sense, the recording certainly shares multiple elements with it's predecessor including, most significantly, the renewal of Adams' creative partnership with conductor Ludovic Morlot and the Seattle Symphony.
The second disc in the package is a DVD which includes a 5.1 surround mix of the recording, as...

"There is a tendency to see jazz performance divided between uptempo numbers and ballads, but Adkins is perhaps con- cerned with something different, a thoughtful, alert, observant gait – Henry David Thoreau preferred to talk about ‘saunter- ing’ – that offers the player a new relationship with his surroundings. Adkins’ immediate surroundings are familiar enough, the group he...
