Really good album by what I think is all young, new players based out of NYC. Alon Nechushtan-keyboards, Marc Mommaas-saxophones, Matt Pavolka-bass, Jordan Perlson-drums, Matt Shulman-trumpet. Everything in the hype-sheet that follows is true!. "Talat...

“A real neo-krautrock album with all the typical ingredients, such as long tracks, guitar freakouts, totally kosmik effect orgies, double drumming and out of this world atmospheres. Both bands met for a concert together as one band at 20th of September 2019 in the cult club Sabotage in Portugal's capitol city Lisbon. Sadly the Sabotage has not survived the corona lockdown. Electric Moon is Germany's beloved psychedelic rockband, who played all over Europe and released so many albums. Talea Jacta is one...

"Talinka - such an evocative name - wittily appropriate for this intimate set so sensitively arranged around Tali's straight from the heart, true and soulful voice. Since hearing Ms. Atzmon's discrete contributions to records by Gilad Atzmon and friends I've long wished she would make a record revealing her own deeply personal approach to music, and here, at last, is that record."-Robert Wyatt

Talk Talk were a wanky, mid 1980s pop band who fairly quickly became sonic explorers, using tremendous amounts of space and ideas in their music, and, as someone once pointed out, it could definitely be argued that what they did once they started experimenting helped to found the spacious sound of the 'post-rock' movement. This was their fifth and final release, a hugely experimental album, and a great album that still has roots in song-form while reaching way beyond, with a lot of ambiance and...

The first truly great Talking Heads album and still the best for me; this is where it all came together, but before it seemed like ‘big gestures so the folks in the back of the hall can see it’….

“... new co-producer Brian Eno brought a musical unity that tied the album together, especially in terms of the rhythm section, the sequencing, the pacing, and the mixing.
Where Talking Heads had largely been about David Byrne's voice and words, Eno moved the emphasis to the bass-and-drums team...

"This great live set captures Talking Heads at The Park West, in Chicago, in 1978. After playing a selection of showcases in Europe at the start of the year - and taking time-out to record their second album in the Bahamas - the group were amidst a tour criss-crossing the USA from New York to Los Angeles."

"Ohad Talmor came to New York in 1995 to study music and since then made Brooklyn his home where he has been one of the "movers and shakers" of the creative jazz scene. On the ground floor of his Prospect Heights loft, he runs the performance space "Seeds".

Nice, noisy stuff by the trio of Léo Dupleix: Keyboards, Laurens Smet: Bass & Louis Evrard: Drums that keeps a beat and a groove and keeps your interest! Completely different, but fans of Schnellertollermeier will probably also dig this. Listen to the track below and hear what I mean!

“In the twentieth year of the band's existence, The Tangent are pleased to announce their 12th studio album, Songs From The Hard Shoulder. This album sees The Tangent focusing almost entirely on their long format songs or "epics" with only one song being less than 16 minutes long.
A very mature sounding record, the band have.

“After an eventful year of touring throughout their native Australia - including runs with labelmates MONO and likeminded pioneers Tortoise - and featuring alongside the work of artist David Hockney at the National Gallery of Victoria, post-everything quintet Tangents return with another album, and another stylistic detour. New Bodies continues Tangents' rummage through countless varieties of electronics, rock, dub, noise, and free improv jazz that defines the group's acclaimed aesthetic. The spacious...

“DEADLY CARE was a television film that aired in March 1987. The film tells the true story of Anne Halloran (Ladd), a lead nurse in one of the busiest intensive care units in the country. Anne finds herself becoming addicted to drugs and alcohol as she tries to balance the stress from work with her lonely existence at home. The tipping point for Anne is the declining health of her alcoholic sister, Terry (Balaski). After Terry dies, Anne starts leaning harder on drugs and alcohol, ultimately putting...

Electronic Meditation is the quite wild first release by Tangerine Dream, recorded in 1969 and released in 1970 on OHR. Unlike their later albums, there are no synthesizers here, only lots of 'effects' and imagination. The band is a trio of Edgar Froese..

“Exit marks the beginning of a new phase in Tangerine Dream's music: Gone were the side-long, sequencer-led journeys, replaced by topical pieces that were more self-contained in scope, more contemporary in sound. Johannes Schmoelling's influence is really felt for the first time here; Tangram, for all its crispness and melody, was simply a refinement of Force Majeure's principles, and the soundtrack to Thief not an album proper. On Exit, listeners are introduced to electronic music's next generation...

“Digitally remastered edition. Exit is the sixteenth major release and eleventh studio album by the German group Tangerine Dream. Exit reached #43 in the UK, spending five weeks on the chart.”

Recorded August/September 1979 at Hansa Studios, Berlin.

September 8th, 2016 - the open air live concert by Tangerine Dream at the amphitheater Augusta Raurica in Switzerland (close to the city Basel) was one of the first concerts TD performed after the death of Edgar Froese, head and founder of TD. The beautiful sight surrounded by an ancient Roman village, the fantastic ancient amphitheater created a very special atmosphere for the magic music.

“Digitally remastered edition. Logos Live is the eighteenth major release and fourth live album by Tangerine Dream. It was released in December 1982. It is a live album from the concert at the Dominion Theatre in London, England. Much like Tangram with short movements connected by atmospheric segues, Logos captured a period of Tangerine Dream's evolution from experimental to melodic, documented also by their soundtrack to the motion picture Risky Business a year later.”

“Logos introduced Johannes Schmoelling to the TD lineup (not counting one very rare LP). and the change while not a huge departure from their established form is noteworthy. With Logos, TD began adding more, and more significant, "hooks" to their compositions. Perhaps a more controversial addition is the sampled saxophone, which would be a point of contention in later years due to the actual saxophone contributions of first Hubert Widner, and then of Linda Spa...

"2017 release from the electronic music pioneers. Tangerine Dream have been a fundamental influence on electronic and progressive music since their formation in West Berlin, 1967. Inspiring genres, musicians and other art forms, from The Future Sound of London to Porcupine Tree, the widely popular TV show Stranger Things (for which their music also featured in) to seminal video game Grand Theft Auto V (for which they helped to write the soundtrack).

Ricochet originally released as Virgin V 2044 in 1975.

The Sessions releases consist of the current line up of Tangerine Dream: Thorsten Quaeschning, Ulrich Schnauss and Hoshiko Yamane performing ‘instant live compositions’ (meaning improvising these sets], generally recorded in concert, just as Tangerine Dream did all the time in the 70s.
Really good and while it won’t make you forget Ricochet, Rubycon or Zeit, all of these are significantly greater than they have any right to be. Conditionally recommended.

Irvine Meadows Amphitheater, Laguna Hill, CA, June 6, 1986.

“This was a bootleg recording circulating with the title that it carries now and became obsolete when it came out as a part of the Tangerine Tree and Bootmoon series.
Sound quality here is far better than the Tree version and from the old bootleg; probably genuinely derived from a radio broadcast as claimed…
This is a 1986 Underwater Sunlight tour with Froese, Franke and new recruit Paul Haslinger.”

As far as I can tell, this is a soundtrack that the band did in 1981 (in other words, still very much in prime-era), which was never released other than as the film’s soundtrack! Which means it should feature Chris Franke, Edgar Froese, Johannes Schmölling, so better 41 years later than never!
It was hard for me to find much meaningful information about this, but I did find a youtube page that claims to be the entire unreleased soundtrack of 40 minutes. And it was pretty good and pretty creepy. Is...

"Tangram is the 13th major release and 10th studio album by the electronic music group Tangerine Dream. It became their fifth biggest selling album, reaching #36 in the British Top 40, and spending 5 weeks on the chart."

“This 7 CD clamshell boxed set features a selection of recordings made at five concerts recorded between November 1976 and June 1983 by different incarnations of the sonic pioneers.
The first two concerts recorded in Nottingham in November 1976 and Washington in April 1977 feature the legendary line-up of Edgar Froese, Chris Franke and Peter Baumann. The latter concert was broadcast live on FM radio as part of a US Tour that spawned the live album ‘Encore’.
The 1978 concert in Hamburg featured a..

“Originally released in early-2000 on the TDI Music label, Edgar and Jerome Froese produced 11 interesting tracks for this motion picture soundtrack. Obviously with Eastern musical influences, the soundscape is mostly meditative, but there is some clubland sparks that smoothly slides into the mix.
The elegant Cradle of Prodigies is the standout selection, though the bouncy Meng Tien, along with Zhu Zhanji and Tiger Forest are highly expressive. There is a majestic ambience that flows throughout and...

This is two shows by Tangerine Dream recorded between 1978 and 1980. The sound quality is very good for what this is and big fans will be thrilled by this.

"Featuring recordings made at the Palais des Congres, Paris in March 1978 and at the Palast der Republik, East Berlin in January 1980, this 4 CD set has been compiled with the official approval of Tangerine Dream and features two concerts that were voted as some of the finest bootlegs in existence in a recent poll of fans....

This is Tangerine Dream’s first four, pre-sequencer, OHR-label releases: "Electronic Meditation", "Alpha Centauri", "Zeit" and "Atem" packaged in replica card sleeves and also includes a poster. Some of this is, imo, some of their finest work.

"Electronic Meditation was recorded in Berlin in October 1969 and featured the first Tangerine Dream line-up of Edgar Froese (guitars, organ, tapes, sound effects), Klaus Schulze (drums, percussion) and Conrad Schnitzler (cello, violin, typewriter)...

“Digitally remastered edition. Thief (1981) is the 15th major release and second soundtrack album by Tangerine Dream. It is the soundtrack for the 1981 American neo-noir crime film Thief, directed by Michael Mann. It reached #43 on the UK Albums Chart in a 3-week run.”

“A superb collection of rare early tracks from electronic pioneers Tangerine Dream! Features 2 tracks from the '60s psych-rock band that preceded Tangerine Dream, The Ones, plus rare tracks from the early '70s era of the band when they were at their most adventurous, composing epic pieces that clocked in at over 10 minutes each such as "Asteroid Agenda" and "Overture!"”
