"Wonderfully dramatic, melodic Goth prog from Bretagne, France. The spooky yet sultry and ethereal vocals of

A CD that presents a number of intriguing compositions from a composer I wasn't aware of. Very lyrical, yet still ''new music'', with performances by Relache, Guy Klucevsek, The Soho Quartet, Kathleen Supove, & more! [Experimental Intermedia]

The one and only album by Chillum is actually the third and final album by Second Hand. Second Hand were having an audition for a guitarist and the tapes were rolling while he jammed with them. The music was determined to be good enough to release...

This never-released folk/rock/psych album really is good and it really is sort of astonishing that not a note of it was never released until now, especially considering the names involved (Bob Weston, later of Fleetwood Mac and small guest appearances...

“Chimpan A, are the electronica inspired prog duo comprising Robert Reed (Magenta/Cyan/Sanctuary) and former singer Steve Balsamo (Jon Lord/Eric Woolfson/Superstar). The Empathy Machine is the follow up to their self-titled debut album in 2006.
"We’ve been working on this album now for an amazing 14 years, since the original album back in 2006," Balsamo tells Prog. "It's been different," adds Reed. "Usually you look back on a record with some regrets over time. We’ve been able to park the record for..

Chimpspanner (now that's a name) is a project by technical metal guitarist Paul Antonio Ortez. On record, he plays all the parts, which he does well, but since he plays live with a real band, it's a shame that they don't appear here - this is my...

1999 release. "Dingledoodies, their second album for Rune Grammofon, is a much more optimistic record than Whatever and in many ways a far more polished production. It´s a more immediately melodic and catchy record; from the irresistible pop refrains...

"1998 release. "In ´92 and ´93 Chocolate Overdose released two very ambitious albums for WEA in Norway. However, the combination of a truly original band, a major label, an expensive producer, media hype and lack of immediate results once again proved...

"On their self-titled third album, Chon find themselves at the confluence of a great push and pull. Their debut full-length, 2015's Grow, established their mathy, forward-thinking take on the genre, while 2017's Homey furthered that sound while incorporating brand-new influences like effect-pedal-heavy elements of electronic music and trip-hop and debuted at No. 66 on the Billboard 200.
Now, with Chon, the trio once again have kicked down their musical guardrails - but in a way that balances their...

So, this is the 2nd release from this San Diego math-rock trio. Like Upsilon Acrux, also originally from San Diego, there is a lot of tapping and polyrhythms, but unlike Upsilon, Chon's sound is very happy, warm and sunny.
Yes. Happy, warm and sunny progcore mathrock. Believe it, baby.

"On their second full-length, San Diego's Chon continue to refine their complex yet highly listenable brand of knotty, mostly instrumental rock. The palm tree and pink tint on the album's cover, not to...

"Chopteeth is Washington, DC's award winning 12-piece Afrofunk orchestra. The group explores the common groove between the funkiest, most hip-shakin’ West African and American popular music on the planet. The band has been described by The Washington...

“This is a split release by Dylan DiLella and CHORD. Two tracks of solo guitar by DiLella and three guitar duos by CHORD. Over 40 minutes of not-normal electric guitar music.

Dylan DiLella is a Brooklyn based guitarist primarily known for his work in Pyrrhon. This recording is the follow-up to his solo guitar debut Flayed Oration which was self-released in 2016.
DiLella's frantic yet atmospheric approach to solo guitar might bring to mind a variety disparate influences, such as Fripp...

What you will hear on Sanjog is nothing other than pure Indian music played to perfection by three masters of their instruments: Madhuri Chattopadyhay on violin, Subroto Chowdury on sitar and Shanka Chatterjee on tabla. Raga Desh has the typical featur...

Reissue of a rare album from Davey & LaDonna's early US improvised/out music label TransMusiq. Davey, of course, is one of the greats, and his longtime partnership with LaDonna yielded a large number of worthwhile albums and concerts. "Stunning surreal...

"Christmas was formed in 1969 in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada, out of the ashes of the cult underground psychedelic band Reign Ghost. In July 1970, Christmas released an independent self-titled debut that brought some media attention to the band and a contract with the Daffodil Records label. In December 1970, less than six months after the release of the debut, Christmas released their debut Daffodil Records album entitled Heritage.
Christmas was comprised of vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Bob...

"Recorded live at Massey Hall in Toronto on September 23, 1971, this album features a set by the Oshawa-based band Christmas. The album contains two songs from the Heritage album, "Point Blank" and "Blues on an Iceberg"; one 18-minute, 36-second piece entitled "Beyond the Fields We Know" that was to eventually end up on the Lies to Live By album; and a previously unreleased medley of early material called "When Night Falls" that includes the Christmas cheer, a direct takeoff of the famous Fish cheer...

"Lies to Live By is essentially the third album release by the Canadian band Christmas. After the release of the Heritage album, they were beset with management and label problems over the direction of the band's next album. The music scene in Canada was in disarray and bands such as April Wine, the Guess Who, BTO, and Chilliwack had hits with commercial hard rock songs.
The Heritage album was a start in the right direction and the label wanted the band to continue with hard rock but make it more...



This is the third release by this group from Lyon, France, part of the very vibrant and exciting French scene that is currently churning out amazing bands and records.
Chromb! are a little less noisy than some of the other bands in this scene (Ni, Poil) and a little more melodically oriented/song oriented, while definitely not being wimpy in any way.
Great melodies, great playing from all four musicians and surprisingly good vocals from a band with a slant towards the zaniness that only the...

Camille Durieux – synthesizers, rhodes, piano, backing vocals

Until they imploded (which didn't take very long, actually), San Francisco's Chrome were a cool and punky blend of crazy sounds, noise, psychedelic guitar excess and raw energy, coming across like a mix of The Stooges and Hawkwind.

"That’s not news now: Scandinavian jazz is in love with Americana, importing aspects of Country & Western and Appalachian folk, and even using its instruments, in projects gradually difficult to categorise. Each project still individually unique, and like their fellow countrymen Huntsville, who mixes banjo and pedal steel guitar with Indian tabla machine and shruti boxes...

This is the second of two albums made by this French fusion band in the later half of the 70s, and it marks the first time ever out on CD!

“A French jazz band that released two fusion records with pronounced funk sound. They were a kind of supergroup, with four members previously in Moravagine, flautist Denis Barbier, keyboardist Olivier Huntman, saxophonist Pierre-Jean Gidon and the drummer Mino Cinelu, the latter also being a much-travelled session musician and in bands as diverse as Gong and...

"With a sonic portfolio that boasts commissions for the Xenon classic pinball machine, the sounds for the Meco Star Wars theme, the Atari TV commercials and the electronic sound effects in the original Stepford Wives film (amongst many others) the mutant electronic music CV of Suzanne Ciani is proof that in a 1970s commercial world of boys toys, monopolized by a male-dominated media industry, a woman's touch was the essential secret ingredient to successful sonic seduction. A classically-trained musician...

"A reissue of Suzanne Ciani's Seven Waves, originally released in 1982. Following Finders Keepers' first time compendium of Suzanne Ciani's vintage electronic private music, custom made commercials and sound effects with Lixiviation, and providing a brilliant companion piece to the recently deleted limited edition handmade edition of her ultra-rare 1970 art house installation record Voice Of Packaged Souls, released via the Demdike Stare/Finders Keepers Dead Cert company in 2012, the sonic sisterhood at...

Prog experts will remember the German progressive rock band Tibet, whose sole album was reissued by Musea. This is a new band by their guitarist!

"THE PERFECT MENTAL CINEMA! CINEMA is the current project of Jürgen "Pöngse" Krutzsch, who already was a well-known Krautrock size with his band TIBET in the Seventies. The project name fits, because the titles of this album run like movies in the mind's eye of the listener. Pöngse - supported by Brigitte Grafe and guitarist Benjamin Peiser - knows to...

Reissued, expanded (with 35' of never-released material added!) 2 CD set of their 2003 live disc / studio disc release.

Circle are a long-lived and hugely prolific Finnish underground rock band. Using elements of minimalism, stoner-rock, doom-metal, Krautrock and a lot more (sometimes at the same time and sometimes not), they've got a huge number of albums out on a billion labels (most notably their own, Ektro) and with a wide variety of sounds and approaches, but always using repetition and...

"Circle's long lost 3rd album from 1996 finally re-released! Ambient soundscapes and hypnotic rock shake hands with the avant-garde, fusing into an ominous puppet theatre soundtrack - for adults."

"Circle's entire discography is so hard to follow and hard to categorize. All albums have flaws but what's most important, all of them have a tremendous feel. This is pure trance music ; this finnish band is simply the new Can of the 21st century ! Try only one album and you'll be hooked for life."...

"The members of Circle have been listening to a lot of '80s black metal lately (ie. Venom, Celtic Frost). As a result, the premier Kraut-influenced, psychedelic band have created their most dark and twisted record to date -- which, for those familiar...

I was going to say that this is the latest Circle album, but since their website states that this is 'aproximately' the 7th Circle album released in 2007, I am afraid I will cough and an 8th one will come out. This presents the band in full NWOFHM ("new w
