'The Seas And The Stars' chronicles the collision between the Andromeda galaxy and our own Milky Way, the eventual end of everything, a celestial intervention and a return to where everything began - viewed from an impossible, empty shoreline.

“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...

"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). That first take...

This nice package presents the first two Kayak albums, from 1973 and 1974 in their entirety at a very reasonable price, especially considering they have been out of print in any other form for some time. These two early ones are some of the band's best work and the work where they made their reputation. This long-lived Dutch progressive band feature vocals, keyboards, guitar, bass and drums. Somewhat comparable to Camel in terms of their sheer melodicism.

“An album 20 years in the making, the first solo work from former Yes member Tony Kaye.Marking the events and the journey that followed the world changing moments of 9/11, End Of Innocence is designed to be listened to in it's entirety. Featuring Dani Torchia who Kaye met in the wake of 9/11 who has written and performs on the album. Tony Kaye retired from Yes in 1996, and came out of retirement the week following the events of 9/11 and began to write this album, the power of it's music helped Tony to...

“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."

Kayo Dot used to be known as Maudlin of the Well, who were a avant-garde/classical leaning metal outfit. Wanting to move beyond that, they changed their name and direction and became Kayo Dot. This lists 10 musicians on guitars, cello, flute/clarinet/a...

This was originally released on triple vinyl by the band themselves, in a now sold-out edition, and now, finally after several years, the CD version is available domestically (it was previously a Japanese-only release!)

"Hubardo is the sixth album, a concept double album, by Kayo Dot...It is Kayo Dot's first double album, its longest album and one of its heaviest albums to date, containing aspects of avant-garde metal, black metal, post-metal, post-rock, jazz fusion as well as chamber music..

“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...

This is the 3rd new album by this classic and great Swedish psychedelic/progressive/folkrock band since their reformation in 2001s. Like the previous two, it retains their classic sound as well as retaining their leader and monster guitarist Kenny Hakansson, who has been one of the top Scandinavian psychedelic guitarists since the time of his first professional group Baby Grandmothers OVER 45 YEARS AGO (one of the great, under-rated guitarists of our time) and it basically sounds just like they have always

“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.”
