“First thing: this is Rock Progressivo Italiano. If you have in mind the classic RPI, this is what you can expect from this album: keyboard driven epics of the kind that unfortunately bands like PFM today seem to have become unable to write.
Second thing: it's a concept album based on a very moving true story with lyrics which deserve to be understood, and you can find them translated in several languages on the band's website, even if the poetry looses power with the translation.
Third: it's...

Fred Lonberg-Holm, cello
Amphibians of the Everglades, noises

"Never one to shy away from unusual projects, cellist Fred Lonberg-Holm set out into the mosquito-infested swamps of Florida’s Everglades in search of a host of amphibious collaborators. In the night air, he bowed and plucked in conversation with the environment, especially the vocalizing frogs, which seemed to take him on as an exotic member of their own.
Impeccably documented by the experienced soundscape artist and field..

This is a band mostly made up of folks in the orbit (direct or tertiary) of Abel Ganz.

“Long Earth is a prog rock band with members living in Scotland. We came together by a series of fortunate but unexpected coincidences. A bunch of musicians who just wanted to create and have fun. We originally just got together to jam and see what came about, things went well and so we realized that we had become a band.
In 2017 LONG EARTH released their debut album "The Source", proving popular with...

“Posthumous solo album from the multi-award winning singer, songwriter, producer and the voice of Big Big Train. At the time of David's death, the album was 95% complete and was finished by his friends.

Completed by a working party of musicians closest to the multi-instrumentalist, spear-headed by co-producer / engineer Patrick Phillips (Kate Bush, Van Morrison, Goldfrapp, Ludovico Einaudi) and recorded with 4 core musicians..

Sarah, who Guitar World called one of the world’s greatest seven and eight-string guitarists, has released her first album, after making a name for herself with various youtube videos.
She certainly can play! The music on Disparity consists of her light, soaring vocals along with spidery guitar-virtuoso backing at its lightest, to heavier, Animals As Leaders complexity.
You can get a good feeling for what she....

“By the end of the Victorian era the world had become interconnected by technologies in a way that would have been unimaginable in the previous century. This album takes a musical look at the question “what did the Victorians do for us?”
The eight songs consider a selection of inventions and new developments, and the changes these brought about in the day-to-day lives of ordinary people. There are songs about the affordable daily newspaper; the postage stamp; the bicycle; the department store...

“In 1975, the NDR established its own festival to provide the then so called "New Jazz" with a home base in the Hanseatic City of Hamburg, which was suffering slightly under the omnipresent and highly respected swing and Dixieland traditionalists, who provided a cozy, but hardly innovative version of jazz. "Onkel Pö" was selected as a second venue of.

Unique, vocal-heavy, avant-progressive music; maybe the closest comparison I can give would be to Arrigo Barnabe.

"Loomings is a one of a kind musical universe of mingled voices and percussions, acoustic and electronic sounds. Their songs follow unpredictable paths: sometimes they emerge from complex compositional strategies, sometimes they’re just driven by the desire to walk through harmonies, vocal arabesques, instrumental unisons and phases. It is a music which belongs to the tradition of...

“Loomings was born under the impetus of Jacopo Costa, an Italian musician living in Strasbourg, France. Thanks to the vitality of the local music scene, he has the opportunity to realize his creations with the help of several musicians with varied artistic backgrounds.
The voices of Maria Denami and Clara Weil - one from the lyric repertoire, the other rooted in contemporary music - add to the jazzy groove of Nicolas Klee (electric bass) and Nils Boyny (keyboards), as well as to the percussion and...

Loose Change were one of the leading exponents of fusion in Australia in the mid/late 80's (yeah, yeah, that and $3.50 buys a Starbucks). This was the band's only album, which was recorded live and has never been available on CD before. The big selling...

Daniel Lopatin (Oneohtrix Point Never) returns with his latest film score.

“Lopatin creates strong passages seemingly beamed from the chase sequence of an 80s cyborg movie, all arpeggiating synth lines and toe-tapping pace. School Play features a gorgeous techno pattern writhing around wraiths of threatening noise, and The Blade has big, Vangelis-style fanfares over bright, scrolling synthwave.” - The Guardian

Luís Lopes electric guitar / Jean-Luc Guionnet alto saxophone

"When the concert of this live recording was announced in Lisbon, it was with some surprise. The backgrounds, references and styles of the Portuguese guitarist Luís Lopes and the French alto saxophonist (and church organist, and electro-acoustic manipulator) Jean-Luc Guionnet couldn’t be more different. Lopes is known for his free improvised settings, his noise solo blastings and the open jazz, but tintet with rock, he plays with...

"Luis Lopes’ Lisbon Berlin Quartet immediately references the residences of the contributing musicians, Lopes and Rodrigo Pinheiro from Lisbon, Robert Landfermann and Christian Lillinger from Berlin, but there’s more than this that feeds the specific urban relations of this music.

Brandon Lopez - bass
Steve Baczkowski - saxophones
Gerald Cleaver - percussion
Cecilia Lopez - synthesizer (track 5)

“Brandon Lopez works at the fringes of jazz, free improvisation, noise and new music. This collaborative powerhouse never lets up with underground sax hero Steve Baczkowski and Gerald Cleaver who is among the most agile and wide-ranging first-call musicians on the 21st century jazz scene.”

“The best free improvisation ensembles generally carry three characteristics: tremendous mastery by the individual instrumentalists, sympathetic listening, and instinctual timing. This quartet displays all three on this fantastic recording released by Relative Pitch. The group is comprised of Brandon Lopez (Brandon Lopez Trio, Xivaros, The Mess, Nate Wooley Quartet) on Contrabass, Matt Nelson (Battle Trance, GRID, tUnE-yArDs) on Tenor Saxophone, Andria Nicodemou (Leap of Faith, London Improvisers...

“Fusing architecture, installation, and composition, in RED (db), two large woven wire nets hung from Roulette’s ceiling holding instruments creating a complex feedback organism. The suspended drums and double bass acted as resonant bodies intensified by the instruments simultaneously played in the space by percussionist Gerald Cleaver, bassist Brandon Lopez and Cecilia Lopez on electronics.”

Ramon Lopez – drums
Mark Feldman – violin

“One of the most prominent violin players, Mark Feldman, meets one of the most creative and innovative drummers, Ramon Lopez. The results of this magic encounter consists of seven tunes. Seven pearls of contemporary improvisation, where the synergy and energy, abstraction and melodic concept, lyricism and powerful expression unite forming a gigantic superposition.”-Maciej Lewenstein.

“Cuban pianist Harold López-Nussa, of a musical family, is well-versed in classical and jazz piano as well as with Cuban popular music. He played with the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba, performed with Buena Vista Social Club artists, and won awards at Montreaux Jazz Festival. Here we hear his Latin jazz renditions of his own compositions and works by Thelonious Monk, Chucho Valdés, uncle Ernán López-Nussa, Aldo López-Gavilán, and Miguel Nuñez. López-Nussa plays electronic keyboard, too, and has...
