"Peter Van Huffel’s journey through the combination of jazz and rock, alien to the fusion tradition of the seventies and the collage of the nineties, proceeds with yet another opus from the Gorilla Mask gang, as always inclusive of the mindblowing rhythm section of Roland Fidezius and Rudi Fischerlehner. “Brain Drain” is a mishmash of punk, metal, jazz, free i

"After the broad success of “Bite My Blues”, Canadian saxophonist Peter Van Huffel’s Berlin band Gorilla Mask is back with more music; not to cover the foot imprints of his previous work but going beyond a good number of steps. You can’t say anymore that this project consists of a mix of jazz with punk and metal – the kind of sonic assault heard on “Iron Lung” has an identity of its own...

Used copy. Steve wanted to hear this based on a recommendation from a friend but I'm pretty sure he never listened to it. Totally out of place in our catalog, sure, but still a solid pop record with excellent production by Danger Mouse.

Another fun trip into the imaginative world of Annie Gosfield. Her third CD for Tzadik is a nod toward tradition as she draws contemporary classical music into her own mysterious orbit. Four crazy pieces incorporating satellite sounds, static, machine ...

This title is probably my favorite of their five releases! Great second album by this Swedish progressive instrumental quartet of keyboards, guitar, bass and drums. The keyboardist leans heavily on his Fender Rhodes, giving this a bit of a jazz-rock sound, but there's plenty of other keyboards too (Moogs, mellotron, Orchestron, Optigan, acoustic piano, pump organ). Somone once said that if Samla Mammas Manna started their life in the 00s, they might have sounded somewhat like this, and that's a pretty...

This is a solo album by Manuel, which was recorded in 1977, but not released until 1991. It's pretty much prime period stuff of spacey guitar and electronics. “For 2019, this is a newly remastered and carefully re-edited version of the legendary 1977 studio recording for RIAS Berlin.”

“... hardly noticed by the mainstream public, some West-Berlin musicians develop a world of sound, which later eventually became labelled as "Electronic Music". These compositions of slowly evolving soundscapes...

This was originally released in 1981, & is a single piece of really trancey, hypnotic electronics with some nice, very subtle changes going on, & Manuel's (Ash Ra Tempel) guitarwork overlaid on it. I know that some folks find it too minimal, but for me, this is one of the great trance Berlin albums of all time. Personally recommended.

This is the first release, from 2017, from this French heavy fusion jazz quintet.
It features guitar, keyboards, bass and dual drums / percussion.

“We got turned on to French guitarist Grégory François and his band Gowy via our Mörglbl friends.
Cut from similar cloth but with their own identifiable sound, Gowy unleashes a torrent of Zappa influenced heavy jazz rock/fusion.
The band is a quintet so you get plenty of keyboards and a second percussionist playing marimba and hitting all kinds of stuff. François' insane guitar leads sound like he's channeling Frank so much it will leave you slack jawed. Occasionally the band goes in a...

“Generally there were two kinds of prog, the more open, warm approach of the Moody Blues and Yes, or the darker, difficult stylings of King Crimson and Van Der Graaf Generator. If only someone had the ability to fuse these two schools together as one - imagine what fate would await such a band?
Total anonymity it turns out. Gracious's debut is an accomplished and promising platter that shows strong and diverse writing and compositional skills, yet went absolutely nowhere in the marketplace. It's a...

“Forbes Graham (trumpet, drum machine, laptop computer) is joined by Cecilia Lopez (analog synth) and Brandon Lopez (bass) on a session recorded at Firehouse 12 in August of 2021.
Each musician is wholly distinct and themselves on this recording, but their sounds unite to create a dark and quizzical sci-fi journey.”


Seventh and probably the best yet by this heavy, instrumental band from Portland, OR. They are definitely a modern, post-punk, post-modern, post-rock band, but they also embrace psychedelia and space music and other 'pre-hipster' influences and make...

"Opening with a nod to Syd Barret's Pink Floyd (Piper at the Gates of Dawn) Take Refuge In Clean Living begins with morse code and drops into one of the heaviest slow-burn grooves in the Grails canon. Sounding something like Hawkwind and Ravi Shankar scoring Blade Runner, it's lysergic and earthy for Grails in a new way. The rest of the record moves from blissful Eno-inspired ambience, to epic Morricone rock hymns, to an unexpected take on a Ventures tune that returns the listener back to the very...

“2005 was the year it all started… having played keyboards with Glasgow’s Abel Ganz since 1982, Hew had begun to feel the need to take more direct control of his own material as the Ganz machine moved off in a slightly different musical direction from his. Grand Tour was born from a long held fascination.

"The release of Kamasi Washington's The Epic last year marked a seismic shift in the jazz landscape and the game-changing arrival of the genre-blurring Los Angeles collective West Coast Get Down. That evolution continues with the release of Planetary Prince, the debut album by visionary pianist, keyboardist, composer and WCGD founding member Cameron Graves.
Upon signing with Mack Avenue Records, Graves’ nearly released four song EP of the same name was expanded to an eight track full length album...

The long-awaited first reissue of one of the most legendary albums in the history of free music. Recorded live in concert in 1976, when Graves' trio with saxophonists Arthur Doyle and Hugh Glover was at the height of its powers, Bäbi is a testament to the absolutely unique approach the drummer had established for himself. He had reconfigured the drum kit, removing the second heads on all the drums and replacing the snare with two toms, which allowed him a much more nuanced sense of indirectness in his...
