“ROOM 101 is the fifth studio album of KARMAMOI . The album is inspired by George Orwell's ‘1984’. It revisits some of the novel’s themes and concepts, adapting them to the p

Really excellent, modern German psychedelic/progressive band. The band is a quartet and the leads are handled by a keyboardist who sounds like a young, Egg-period Dave Stewart playing psychedelic music, while the guitar player has a nice, fluid, fuzzy...

“The magic and the voice of Edward Ka-spel (Legendary Pink Dots) meet the ambient and psychedelic prog of Italian duo Motion Kapture, formed by Stefano Rossello (Bahntier, Ketvector) and Filippo Corradin (Bahntier, Lingams & Yoni). Alien Subspace captures and transports us into electronic synth spaces where guitars and basses are dilated in order to catapult us into eclectic stories and visions that only the inspired and melodic voice of Edward Ka-spel knows how to create. The songs are enthralling and...

“Edward Ka-Spel is an English singer/songwriter and musician residing in Nijmegen, The Netherlands. He is best known for his work with the band The Legendary Pink Dots, which he co-founded. He is also known for his work on The Tear Garden with Skinny Puppy's cEvin Key. In 2017, he collaborated with Amanda Palmer on the album I Can Spin a Rainbow. In The Dots, he was initially known as D'Archangel, Prophet Q'Sepel and he used other pseudonyms as well. He has also released numerous solo albums (initially...

"First ever collaboration between Edward Ka-Spel (from The Legendary Pink Dots and Tear Garden) and Steven Stapleton (from Nurse With Wound). It's been years they both wanted to work together and Bisou Records made that happen when they offered them a side on this split LP. The other side is the first musical meeting of Colin "the master of drone" Potter and French sax player Quentin Rollet (The Red Krayola, Mendelson, Nurse With Wound, Prohibition, David Grubbs, Thierry Müller, Ilitch).

"New York City-based Pavone and Kasten Krause met by being placed together in the ensembles of other like-minded music experimentalists. It wasn't long before they realized their unique sonic preferences, aesthetics, and approaches to their instruments were similarly aligned and worth further investigation. Over the course of two seasons, they explored and experimented with sound worlds and structures, resulting in the four pieces tha

Born in Japan in 1947, Ryo had a long and stellar career recording and releasing music. Ryo is one of the pioneers of the jazz fusion genre (editor’s note: and also with his early guitar synthesizer, which was bulky and cumbersome and VERY futuristic and cool, and which I saw him play in Elvin Jones’ Jazz Machine in NYC in June, 1975!).
In the US he worked with some of the greats of jazz, such as Elvin Jones, Chico Hamilton and Bobbi Humphrey, to name but a few. A forward-thinking and ever-evolving..

“Kayo Dot, the endlessly eclectic project, spearheaded by composer and producer Toby Driver, was formed in 2003 by the members of the legendary ethereal metal band, Maudlin of the Well, marking a giant-inspired evolutionary leap. Since then, Kayo Dot's muse has shown it's face through slow and massive cascades of guitars and violins, and soundscapes spanning from "Bitches Brew"-inspired tripped-out goth fusion to hyper-fast, angular and atonal suicidal black metal.
Kayo Dot's members and...

"...multi-instrumentalists Toby Driver and Mia Matsumiya lull you into a dream state with a small cavalcade of instrumentation, plying an almost noir sensibility at once moody and contemplative, bristling and demure. An unclassifiable masterpiece."

“The stark frailty of the human condition is the overall theme running through the veins of Kayo Dot's 10th regular studio album "Moss Grew on the Swords and Plowshares Alike". In the sprawling, churning musical multiverse of mainly multi-instrumentalist Toby Driver's creation that has never accepted nor cared for any artificial borders of genre and incorporated for example rock, metal, classical music, goth, indie, pop, and jazzy structures, this avant-garde album appears to tilt towards a more harsh...

"Kayo Dot has never made the same record twice. From chamber music to progressive black metal, from goth to jazz and avant-garde classical, Kayo Dot is undeniably experimental and utterly unclassifiable. Since it's inception in 2003, the band has released seven full-length albums, including their debut Choirs of the Eye (2003), the conceptual double-album Hubardo (2013) and most recently Coffins on Io (2014, The Flenser). On Plastic House on Base of Sky, Kayo Dot fully embraces Coffins on Io's electronic...

“Hypnotic guitar playing swirls throughout this superbly melancholic folk rock LP, privately issued in ‘76 alongside Crooked Oaks debut.
Brilliant songs that edge towards Roy Harper. Dave Keir provides the sleeve notes. the LP is characterised by stunning, exquisite finger picked guitar of the highest order, the compositions are deep, dark and magical, infused with a sense of sorrow.”
