“One of Zorn’s most beloved and unique 21st century ensembles, the Gnostic Trio features the distinctive guitar of Bill Frisell, the vibraphone of Kenny Wollesen and the ethereal harp stylings of Carol Emanuel. The sounds are soulful and heavenly and for this, their seventh cd together, they perform nine tunes from the “Book Beri’ah”, the last book of music completing the Masada legacy. Frisell’s magical sonorities dance around harp and vibraphone creating a heavenly improvisational counterpoint. Truly...

"GOAD were first formed in the Florence area by the Rossi brothers, Gianni and Maurilio, in the late Seventies. At the end of 1983 they released the album "Creatures" for Northcott Production, a New York label that had already released in the USA their album of covers, "Who Can It Be". The album was issued by Emmegi (distributed by Polygram) in 1985. In spite of lack of support from the label, another album was completed. "Perfume" is a collection of pieces written and recorded from 1985 to 1988, which...

Great, up and coming, new Swedish psychedelic band from Sweden. Lots of influences from Can, Afro-pop/Fela Kuti early Sabbath, and tribal rhythms. Heavy drums and bass, wild guitar and mesmerizing dual female vocals make this band unique and wonderous...

“Formidable psychic warriors, channelers of the mystic and proponents of a spiritual quest that transcends this realm, Goat remain a band shrouded in mystery. Travelling from their origins in the Swedish village of Korpilombo across the stages and festivals of the world in the last decade, this band has created their incendiary music entirely according to their own co-ordinates and conducted their affairs strictly by their own code.
Invigorated by forces we can only guess at the origins of...

Third studio album by this great, up and coming psychedelic band from Sweden. Lots of influences from Can, Afro-pop/Fela Kuti early Sabbath, and tribal rhythms.
As the hype below states, this is more acoustic than previous releases and not as heavy, but the basic blueprint of what they do (Krautrock freakout+Afro-pop+dual female vocals) remains and they remain unique and very fun!

"In a culture obsessed with content, saturation, and continual exposure, it’s rare to find artists who prefer to.

"I compose and play electronic/mixed music with different groups like the laptop duo [KNAPP], the LAPS Ensemble or individual instrumentalists (Nao Momitani, Véronique Delcambre) and I'm part of the SMOG organization staff. I also realized several projects with the visual artist Inger Elisabeth Gleditsch. Currently I'm a professor of electronic composition and mixed music at the Royal Academy of Music of Liège and lecturer-assistant at the Royal Academy of Music of Mons (Arts2). From these last years...

“Goblin recorded live in Austin, Texas, on April 29, 2014, during the third North American Tour. The line-up consists of Massimo Morante, Maurizio Guarini, Fabio Pignatelli and Agostino Marangolo, joined by Steve Moore. Guests include rock duo Zombi. Austinato was recorded at the intimate setting of the Mohawk venue in downtown Austin. In 2013/2014 Goblin toured North America for the first time in their 40 plus year career, performing live the soundtracks the band was renown for, including themes..

Actually, the group is now called "New Goblin", but who is going to look in under "N" for a new Goblin CD? This album was recorded live in Rome on February 18, 2011 and features three original and/or long time members of Goblin: Massimo Morante (guitar),

“Second album of the greatest hits of Claudio Simonetti's Goblin with some unreleased as a rarity. The album contains historical songs such as: – Roller and Aquaman from the Goblin album Roller – Opera, Non Ho Sonno, Death Farm, soundtracks of the homonymous films by Dario Argento – Gamma, a song written by Claudio’s father, Enrico Simonetti, a very successful theme song of the homonymous TV drama – Cut And Run, Simonetti’s soundtrack from the film Inferno in Diretta / Cut and Run directed by Ruggero...

"Rustblade presents Claudio Simonetti and his Goblin playing and reinterpreting the score of one of the most famous horror movies of all times to celebrate 40 years of the idolised film Dawn of the Dead directed by George Romero and produced by Dario Argento. The music that accompanies the movie is a mix of prog and electronic rock full of tension and magic tribalism. Piercing guitars, Synth orchestration and virtualism give life to thousands of blood thirsty zombies. An unmissable release enriched with...

Goblin, Goblin, there are so many Goblins! This is the 'other' Goblin, which features original drummer Agostino Marangolo and bassist Fabio Pignatelli, along with Giacomo Anselmi on guitars and bouzouki and dual keyboardists Danilo Cherni and Aidan Zammit.

Recorded live in Rome in April, 2011, This features tons of tracks from greats like Suspiria, Zombi and Roller and more.

After Claudio Simonetti's Daemonia, then Goblin reunited, then Goblin reunited split into Claudio Simonetti's Goblin and now original rhythm section Fabio Pignatelli and Agostino Marangolo have joined forces with guitarist Giacomo Anselmi and dual...

“This Goddess T. project sounds a lot like Mother Gong. And so it should, because it's core line-up is Gilli Smyth, Daevid Allen and their son Orlando Allen. If you're a Gong fan, you should get plenty enjoyable plays from 'Electric Shiatsu' as I have.
Some of the outstanding tracks would be "Sugar Path", "Triple Helix", the nicely done poetic "Sirius Ma" and the twenty-minute quite spacey "Journey Of The White Whale". Truly incredible! Through out the eight song / 68:10 minute disc, I'm SURE...

"The name of French clarinetist Jean-Brice Godet may not ring a bell in the minds of American, German or Japanese jazz fans, but if we say he’s a regular companion of the celebrated bassist Joelle Léandre and remember that he already worked with the likes of Anthony Braxton and Fred Frith you have sufficient indication that an album signed by him really...

Lol Creme and Kevin Godley got their start with the classy and possibly 'too smart for their own good' pop band 10cc. Then, at the height of that band's fame, they split off on their own & made three fabulous and infamous releases, which mingled their high-class pop sensibilities with an absolutely cutting, cynical sense of humor and fine musical abilities.

This was their 3rd and last truly great release. Absolute state of the art production for its time and state of the art ideas and...

“First-ever issue of stillborn 1969 studio album from pre- Hotlegs/10cc duo Godley And Creme during their days as Frabjoy And Runcible Spoon. Classic UK late 60s psychedelic/folk sound recorded at Advision Studios with support from future 10cc colleagues Graham Gouldman and Eric Stewart.”

“In mid-1969, legendary British R&B/psychedelic enabler Giorgio Gomelsky signed two Manchester-based art students, renaming them Frabjoy And Runcible Spoon.
Envisaging the pair as a British Simon And...

"Godspeed You! Black Emperor (GYBE) returns with its first single LP-length release since the group's earliest days in 1997-99. Asunder, Sweet And Other Distress clocks in at a succinct 40:23 and is arguably the most focused and best-sounding recording...

“The inimitable GYBE returns with another soundtrack for our times. As the heretical anarcho-punk spirit of the title implies, Godspeed harnesses some particularly raw power, spittle and grit across two riveting 20-minute side-length trajectories of noise-drenched widescreen post-rock: inexorable chug blossoms into blown-out twang, as some of the band's most soaring, searing melodies ricochet and converge amidst violin and bassline counterpoint.

“Describing the musical output of the eclectic Harvey Gold, a founding father of Tin Huey and Half Cleveland, Gold has offered, “We are what we eat and we’ve eaten a lot of different stuff.”
Careening from power pop, to electronic, to “West Akron Appalachian,” this solo album includes an emotional protest/love song in “The Fence,” a sizzling rocker with horns, “In Consideration of Joe Strummer,” a dark take on The Beatles’ “I’ve Just Seen a Face,” AND a nod to Vivian Stanshall with a Music Hall style

"Pennsylvania native Keith Kenniff's output as Goldmund has established him as one of the preeminent composers of minimal piano-based ambient music alongside peers like Hauschka, Dustin O'Halloran, and even Ryuichi Sakamoto, who himself once described Kenniff's work as "so, so, so beautiful". Hyperbolic as it may sound, Goldmund's newest collection Occasus may be his most exquisite yet. Where his previous recordings trod faithfully and sincerely on paths of dimly lit, polaroid-esque nostalgia, Occasus...
