Second release by Harris Newman is again an album of finger-style Americana guitar music, thoroughly embedded with the Takoma Records 1960's vibe. The pieces are a mixture of solo guitar and guitar with percussion and drums by Bruce Cawdron (drummer of...

Colin Newman was a founding member of Wire and this was his first solo album, originally released in 1980.
It has a lot of influences from Wire and it is comparable in a lot of ways to 154, so this is completely recommended if you like the sound of the artiest of the original punk bands.
This has been new expanded to include B-sides, demos and supporting material, all on a second disc!

Colin Newman was a founding member of Wire and this was his third solo album, originally released in 1982.
Not To features a full band (including Wire drummer Robert Gotobed), which makes it sound more like a lost cousin to "154" (not a minor thing!), so this is completely recommended if you like the sound of the artiest of the original punk bands.
This has been new expanded to include B-sides, demos and supporting material, all on a second disc!

Colin Newman was a founding member of Wire and this was his second solo album, originally released in 1981.
Provisionally Entitled The Singing Fish is a completely solo album, with all instruments played by Newman. Basically all instrumental, it reminds me a lot of Eno circa "Another Green World"; not that it sounds just like it, but there are a lot of cool little experimental things and sounds going on amongst all the good melodies. One of my absolute favorites of the very early 1980's and one...

Released in a self-defeating micro-edition of 265 copies, this is something we NEVER expected to be able to restock. An amazing, entrancing disc of post-Takoma style guitar with modern touches, this was one of my top 10 albums of 2006. We have 3 copies...

There are many, many players operating in the 'new American primitive guitar school' and there are many fine ones, but for me, one of the real standout players is this guy. He captures a feeling of Americana that probably never really *did* exist, but...

“Dark and majestic, News from Babel remains ahead of their time.”-Michael Draine

“The second record by this group (Lindsay Cooper, Zeena Parkins and Chris Cutler) with invitees Robert Wyatt, Sally Potter, Phil Minton and Dagmar Krause who sing, and Bill Gilonis (of The Work) who plays occasional guitar and bass, and who also produced the recording.
These are extended songs, unusually orchestrated and arranged and not much like anything else recorded before or since. Re-mastered and...

“Dark and majestic, News from Babel remains ahead of their time.”-Michael Draine

“News from Babel was the song project inaugurated by Chris Cutler with fellow ex Henry Cow composer Lindsay Cooper. The pieces for this first LP were written for a band that also included Zeena Parkins (harp - her first recording with the instrument) and the incomparable Dagmar Krause (another ex-band member) singing.
Using the studio as an instrument and experimenting with unusual instrumentation and techniques.

“Acclaimed Australia-based composer, multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, conductor, arranger, and frequent collaborator of bands such as The National and Clogs, Padma Newsome releases his new album, The Vanity of trees, through New Amsterdam Records.
Padma Newsome was born in Alice Springs, Australia in 1961. He trained as a concert violist in Sydney, touring throughout Australia, China and the Pacific. In the mid 1980's, he left classical performance to spend six years on an ashram in New South Wales...

“James Newton has forged an eclectic career as a jazz flautist, conductor and composer. Here, he demonstrates his skills as a creator of sacred music with hints of jazz and roots in the modernist aesthetics.”-Gramophone Magazine

“This recording is contemporary classical music written by a composer whose lineage is of the rare group of classical and jazz composers who have influenced each other - Igor Stravinsky, Maurice Ravel, James P. Johnson, Duke Ellington, Mary Lou Williams, and György...

The latest (2012) release from this Argentinian prog quartet who had their greatest exposure in the US when they played at NEARFest. This is symphonic rock with especially notable performances from the keyboardist (who also sings), who favors a organ...

Following extremely shortly on the heels of their last album, this features the long-lived Argentinian prog band now down to a trio but utterly undiminished in energy. The instrumentation is now keyboards, guitar/bass and drums. Always a keyboard...

Another vivacious all girl band from Kansai, an area in Southern Japan that has been the home of some of the most exciting new rock bands of the past several decades (Boredoms, Afrirampo, OOIOO, Omoide Hatoba). Featuring the distinctive singer from Lim...

Niagra released 3 albums (two on United Artists) in Germany in the heady early Krautrock days. The first album is a all percussion album (that's all percussion, not all drum solos). The second album adds other musicians/instruments as does the third...

"Ghosts And Others is a singular work in the Phill Niblock canon. It's singular not just in its material content, but also in its methodology and approach. It represents a highly focused exercise in editing, location recording and acoustic observation. In many ways, this work reflects a kind of acoustic mirroring of his practices as a film maker. It makes itself available to the world and in doing so reveals a particular perspective that says as much about its creator as it does about its subjects. Like...

Adjacent tones beat violently against one another while clouds of harmonics hover above the wavering drone. The listener hears pitches not being played by the instruments. "Phill Niblock's music has no precendents, invite's no comparisons, & doesn't ev...

“Phill Niblock's Music For Cello collects three pieces from the '70s and early '80s, performed by cellist David Gibson. This CD includes a 16-page unpublished interview with Niblock. Since the late sixties Phill Niblock has been composing long-form acoustic drones with a focus on the rhythms and overtones that rise from closely tuned instruments. His highly original and influential music is an exploration of timbre, microtonality, stability, duration and psychoacoustic phenomenon.”

Four pieces for multiple tracks of alto, bass & concert flute. ''Phill Niblock's music has no precedents, invites no comparisons, & doesn't even suggest any metaphors to me. It is simply itself & must be heard to be believed.''-Village Voice. '' [Exp...

“A reissue of Phill Niblock's G2,44+/X2, originally released in 2002. Matte laminate embossed sleeve; includes insert card and 24-page book with liner notes from Bill Meyer, interview, and photos. Design by Traianos Pakioufakis.
In 2001, Phill Niblock wrote, 'You should play the music very loud. If the neighbors don't complain, it's probably not loud enough.' In 2019, Niblock can no longer host his annual six hour-long solstice concert at the Experimental lntermedia loft; not only did the neighbors...

"Five Bridges is a delectable representation of early 70s progressive rock. It's make-up contains all of the elements needed to complete a solid prog album: a heavy intermingling of synthesizer and electric guitar, strong punctuation of both bass and drums, a central concept, and the fusing of rock and classical music, which in this case employs the Sinfonia of London. The eight tracks, centered around Newcastle's urban structure and life in a blue collar society, are as colorful as they are intricate...

“Fresh from a British tour with Jimi Hendrix and Pink Floyd in mid-December 1967, the Nice paid a short visit to Scandinavia and performed this session for broadcast on Sveriges Radio in Gothenburg.
It captures the quartet at their early peak, playing a blend of covers and tracks from their newly recorded (and not yet released) debut LP, including a mind-blowing rendition of their signature piece, Rondo.
Preserved in superb fidelity, with remarkable contributions from guitarist Davy O'List and...

Cheap but very reasonable collection of tracks by The Nice, the band that launched Keith Emerson into the world, and which features gobs of his great Hammond work (he really was one of the greats on the organ). If you want to hear a good slection of th...

"Featuring Joseph Daley on tuba, Vincent Chancey on French horn, James Zollar on trumpet, Curtis Fowlkes on trombone and Reggie Nicholson on drums, vibes and compositions. This is downtown drum wiz & ace composer, Reggie Nicholson's fourth disc for the Abstract label and each one has presented a different concept. For his latest endeavor, Reggie has organized a fine all-star brass quartet. Each of these men has a long resume of collaborations: Joe Daley (Sam Rivers & Jayne Cortez ), Vincent Chancey...

Nico solo on Top Gear, 1971 in excellent sound. A scary woman and her harmonium and her scary songs!

“Hurdy-gurdy meets percussion. Matthias Loibner, the undisputed innovator of this strikingly exotic, medieval instrument and Lucas Niggli, who has been at the forefront of European Jazz for many years team up. Touching and intoxicating, fed by a huge repertoire between classical music, electronics, tradition and imagination, these two exceptional artists paint sounds into the now. In every colour, every note of their...

"Alchemia Garden: the album’s wonderful title, creates an enchanting, ambiguous effect. Lucas Niggli relates the organic, biological and growing, which develops on its own and is cultivated and maintained in the form of the garden, to the metamorphosis of material, the scientific search for something unknown which historically has been seen to generate something new.
During his thirty years of playing live Lucas Niggli recorded with many musicians like...

This is wonderful to see; for 10 years (1980-1991), The Nightcrawlers, based out of Philadelphia, were one of the greatest electronic / cosmic / spacemusic ensembles of their time, giving a unique slant to their work, but obviously also inspired by the greats of the genre like Tangerine Dream and Klaus Schulze.

“Kaloli is the debut full-length from Kampala's darkest electro-percussion group Nihiloxica. The album marries the propulsive Ugandan percussion of the Nilotika Cultural Ensemble with technoid analog synth lines and hybrid kit playing from the UK's pq and Spooky-J. The result is something otherworldly. Kaloli journeys through the uncharted space between two cultures of dance music, where the expression of traditional elements mutates into something more sinister and nihilistic.

He released a nice album in 1976, “World of dreams”, the first ever release of the obscure Norwegian label Apollo, which it seems to have some links to his later band, as Jon Erik Henriksen was the lead guitarist of Solaris, while bassist Bjorn Henriksen produced the band's only album “Misty morning”. The list on the present album includes about 10 guest musicians, most of them with a jazz...
