"A reissue of Fusioon's Danza Del Molinero, originally released in 1972. This is the first album by these Catalan psych-progsters.
Traditional Spanish songs receive a psychedelic/progressive/jazz-rock treatment with a tremendous rhythm section (drum breaks galore), fuzz-tone guitar, Hammond and analog keyboards, piano, and occasional string arrangements.
RIYL: Soft Machine, Egg, Goblin, Arzachel, Le Orme, Collegium Musicum."

Excellent, heavy Swedish spacerock/stoner-rock/psych trio. Simple, but very effective, trancey/psych music made with guitars, organ, bass and drums.
So many great Swedish bands and so little time to take enough drugs to enjoy them all!
"Alive At Roadburn is Gothenburg based Hills' third album with Rocket Recordings. Hot off the Swedish psychedelia revival of the past few years and after their hailed 2015 album Frid, Hills connect the dots to their country's rich and intoxicating past with a...

What a great idea! These are wonderful albums and Ralf und Florian won't let us hear them. So, you can hear Zeitkratzer do them!
"Karlrecords celebrates its tenth birthday, and Zeitkratzer celebrate their 20th with necessary re-interpretations of early compositions by electronic pioneers Kraftwerk. Founded in 1997 by Reinhold Friedl, Zeitkratzer have since been creating an impressive catalog of recordings that embraces 20th century avant-garde composers (Cage, Stockhausen, Lucier) as well as...

"Includes MP3/FLAC download code for complete contents plus three bonus tracks.
Live In Copenhagen captures Causa Sui at two very special nights: at the release parties of Euporie Tide and Return To Sky. Since the band seldomly performs live, this may very well be the best chance to experience what the band are capable of at their best. One show was recorded at avant-garde institution extraordinaire, Jazzhouse, while the other captures Causa Sui at legendary underground venue Dragens Hule....

While they last, this is more than half off the regular price!
This was one of the very first albums by Ra I ever heard and it was certainly a total immersion trip to Saturn. Recorded on what I believe was Ra's first European tour in 1970, this has some of his most 'out' sounds. "It's after the end of the world; don't you know that yet?"

"'I play space music. When one day humans on far away planets hear the sounds of cosmic beings, the music will seem familiar, for while they were on Earth...

"Solo-Trip" was the first and only solo-album by Lutz Rahn, who has gained reputation and fame as the keyboarder of the German Progressive Rock Band Novalis. It was recorded and first released in 1978 and contains 8 instrumental tracks, similar to the...

For fans of early / mid 70s jazz/electric jazz, this set represents the best bargain in our entire inventory. Hugely recommended!
Horacee is a drummer and bandleader who released these two fine albums in the early 70s. Both are minor classics, imo and are presented here in complete form!
Tribes was originally released in 1972 and the first of his albums on Columbia. This is a very good album, although it should be mentioned that unlike his second release, Tales of the Exonerated Flea, this is more..

"Re-release of a German avantgarde-punk classic from 1981. Co-produced by Holger Czukay (Can) it was the counterpart of the Czukay album "On The Way To The Peak Of Normal", in which all the members of S.Y.P.H. also took part. The CD comes with booklet with unreleased photos and extensive liner notes by the S.Y.P.H. musicians Harry Rag and Jojo Wolter."

"Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a newly re-mastered and expanded edition of “Reflections On A Life”, the classic 1971 album by Welsh Progressive rock group Blonde On Blonde.
Featuring a line-up of David Thomas (vocals, guitar, bass, harmonica), Gareth Johnson (guitars), Graham Davies (bass, acoustic & electric guitars) and Les Hicks (drums), “Reflections on a Life” was the third and final album by the band (who hailed from Newport in South Wales). Issued in 1971, the...

"Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a newly re-mastered and expanded edition of “Rebirth”, the classic 1970 album by Welsh Progressive rock group Blonde On Blonde.
Featuring a line-up of David Thomas (vocals), Gareth Johnson (guitars), Richard John (bass) and Les Hicks (drums), “Rebirth” was the second album by the band (who hailed from Newport in South Wales). Issued in 1970, the record followed on from the band’s debut, “Contrasts”, recorded for the Pye label the previous....

This bootleg is simultaneously much more and much less than it appears to be.

First the good news: The opening 9 tracks are from the Avalon Ballroon, 1966. 4 of these tracks: Tupelo, Somebody In My Home, Evil, Old Folk's Boogie all appeared on the now out of print, incredible Revenant set, Grow Fins, but the other 5 tracks have long been known to exist, but have never been seen or heard before: Down In The Bottom, Don't Start Me To Talkin', The Sun Is Shinin', St. James Infirmary, Harp....

"Cobalt Chapel were formed in late 2014, by London based vocalist and actress Cecilia Fage (Matt Berry & The Maypoles) and Sheffield based musician Jarrod Gosling (I Monster and Regal Worm). Following the recording of their debut album they were asked by Andy Votel to play their first show at this year’s Festival No 6.
The sounds and textures on this debut are captivating and atmospheric, conjured up from vintage organs and effects, vintage drums and drum machines, fused together with Cecilia's...

PLEASE NOTE: Copies we received are unsealed and have minimal shelf wear to the sleeves. It's not terrible, just not 100% perfect, so now you know.

"Sprawling space sounds tell stories of far galaxies - the music fuses single instruments into each other and the sound gets a swirly acid madness... This is psychedelic music without being bound to certain stylistic directions: What matters is the flow. A wonderful soundtrack for a journey to the far out vastnesses of the inner cosmos. Interkosmos were f

"The second album by Necromonkey, featuring drummer Mattias Olsson (ex-Anglagard) and keyboardist David Lundberg (known from his work with Gösta Berlings Saga).
Elements of techno, space, avant, alt-rock and symphonic and lounge jazz have been blended together, along with a unique perspective that only these musicians can bring to the table. The album brings forth different moods and styles in a seamless, almost hypnotic fashion. Continuously engaging the listener with subtle tensions is the key...

Back in stock and at a greatly improved / reduced price! If you didn't snab this before, you should now!
This vinyl-only release is the first new music from this great, legendary psych band in a while. When Tangle Edge first emerged - seemingly out of nowhere - and, being located in the far northern reaches of Norway, inside the arctic circle, one could actually say from out of nowhere(!) - with their first album in 1988, they were seen as the band who would simultaneously save progressive rock and...

Encased in a tri-fold digipack with a Roger Dean cover, this is a high quality, all instrumental, progressive rock album.
Art plays keyboards and bass on this album, and he has brought aboard an electric violinist, a guitarist and a drummer to complete the band set up and sound.
This blends hard prog with electric fusion.

This is the first, and quite impressive, release by a UK outfit firmly in the modern prog-rock folk. You'll hear elements of Marillion, IQ, Big Big Train and more.
It's all extremely well down and fans of the modern prog genre will be really happy with this offering!

"This is a very good band, although the first album, but has been quite mature (although the band members are not young people). That voice is a bit like the lead singer of Rush, a high pitched (the band said they're greatly...

"After playing live music from 1989 to 1996 with his band Art Zoyd for the films Nosferatu (Murnau), Faust (Murnau) and Hâxan (Christensen), fifteen years later Thierry Zaboitzeff once again sets off to tackle a new project.
This time he is alone on the stage, surrounded by a complete arsenal of high-tech equipment, yet including his favourite instruments: cello, bass, percussion, guitar and his voice.
In the midst of this forest of instruments, cables and electronics, Zaboitzeff sees himself...

"The music of Thierry Zaboitzeff cannot be neatly fitted into any existing musical category. On and off one might be tempted by a few bars which indicate a category but soon enough such certainty is shattered.
If Zaboitzeff is in the mood to sound like a child immersed in games, he will. But if he wishes to create a monster through his music, he can and will do so just as well. His music ranges from light and airy to deep and heavy, it is as diverse as life itself. The music accommodates the...

"As every RIO fan knows, Thierry Zaboitzeff had been active for playing upon hundreds of stages or releasing twelve albums in a vanguard of the RIO movement ART ZOYD in collaboration with a composer / violininst Gérard Hourbette from 1971 till 1997.
After leaving Art Zoyd and opening his own studio, Thierry, in cooperation with several renowned directors, started many different projects, which had made attendances at lots of events all over Europe; Thierry has been pretty active for compositions...

Last time available - this is now LONG out of print!

Somehow this DVD of live performances from 2004 and 2005 (live in Los Angeles!) by this excellent and hard-travelling Chilean 'out-rock/out-jazz' band consisting of dual saxes, trumpet, guitar, bass and drums, with some vocals was released only in Japan.
And somehow you can now get it for a song as well!

This lovely record, their 1st and with the most psychedelia smeared onto their already impressive jazz/rock, is long out of print, but we found a few! Hugely recommended.
Secret Oyster were a five piece Danish fusion/progressive supergroup of the 1970s, whose members came from the ranks of Burnin' Red Ivanhoe, Hurdy Gurdy and Coronarias Dans. This was their first album, which was released in 1973, and which, I was surprised to realize, I had never actually heard before this reissue...

"This is the fifth album from Indonesian progressive jazz ensemble simakDialog. Led by keyboardist and composer Riza Arshad, the band also features guitarist Tohpati and bassist Adhitya Pratama, working alongside the twinned percussion thrust of Endang...

When Henry Cow fell apart in the summer of 1978, the main players in the band dispersed. Fred Frith left England to settle in NYC for a good number of years, getting involved the then just beginning to evolve 'downtown' sound, recording three excellent and high-profile albums for Ralph Records, forming first Massacre and then Skeleton Crew. Chris Cutler formed the Art Bears and also was an important member of Cassiber. Lindsay Cooper and Georgie Born did a lot of musical improvising and John Greaves had...

Fifth great album by this world-class, progressive, technical metal, math-rock instrumental quintet. Using guitars, multi-keyboards, bass and drums, their sound is somewhere between Behold...The Arctopus, The Fucking Champs, Gordian Knot and 1980s King...

A few of you bought this band's great 2nd album, Sublimation. Now they have returned for their 3rd and best yet on Sensory. Unbelievably, intensely great instrumental technical metal trio from South Carolina. Just guitar/bass/drums playing with terrifi...

The fifth Guru Guru album, and the final one with the great guitarist Ax Genrich, was their first on a major label and finds them mellowing out a bit, at least compared to Hinten and maybe working a bit more in the 'typical Krautrock' (if there was such a thing) vein. Still lots of guitar splaying by Ax.
Never before on CD, this is remastered and includes an entire, never-before seen or heard bonus disc of the band recorded live at the Krefeld Festival in 1973, in good, not great sound, but it's a...

In the 1990s, when most of his best known material wasn't generally available, there were 3 huge archival sets of all unreleased material of his work released. This series will take these long out of print archival releases, add yet more unreleased...

"Portugal's rising stars Astrodome offer their debut self-titled album on double colored vinyl. Instrumental space rock reminiscent of Hawkwind, Earthless, Samsara Blues Experiment, Colour Haze."

"Parafernalia is a band from Brasilia, formed in 2001, which, on this debut work, composed and recorded between 2001 and 2007, showcase a well-balanced fusion of progressive and hard rock, influenced by Brazilian (Mutantes, O Terco) and English (ELP, Uriah Heep, Deep Purple, Gentle Giant) groups and mixing, with great mastery, complex, creative and bold arrangements with the vintage sound of the musical instruments of the 70's."

Colorful music from a Canadian quartet from Winnipeg that fuse elements of noise and brutal prog with a big helping of Canterbury-style jazz rock. It shouldn't work, but it does. Good stuff and definitely recommended, with each album sounding different, I think; their show at Orion earlier this year was a smoker! This is their 5th and most recent, released in 2008, just before the tour I saw. As they say somewhere, "recommended if you like Stereolab, Tortoise, Soft Machine"....

Originally released a full decade ago (my, time flies whether or not you are having fun!) and out of print for a number of years, the band reprinted it, adding a new, 10' track which should entice you into hopefully being interested in the fact that...

Lelo was the keyboardist for Grupo Um, a very good Brasilian fusion band. This solo album was recorded in 1987 and has never been on CD before. Remastered from the master tapes, with photos and information (all in Portuguese only). It also includes almo..

Lurking behind a rather goofy illustration of three dorky looking guys, one of whom sports a seriously deep moustache, is an extremely good album of jazz/jazz-rock from Brazil. The band is: Felix Wagner-piano, alto clarinet, vibes, percussion, flute...

Hmmmmm. "Return To Ommadawn". Is it particularly surprising? It's only surprising because it is a very good, solid return to the sound that made him famous in the first place and if you think Ommadawn is one of his great works and you don't mind someone revisiting something of a sound that was his creation in the first place, you'll enjoy it plenty!

Peter Brötzmann: tenor and alto saxophones, tárogató, B-flat clarinet
Johannes Bauer: trombone
"Following the death of German trombonist Johannes Bauer in May 2016, Peter Brötzmann decided to pay tribute to the many years of comradery and collaboration he and Bauer shared, from Globe Unity in the '70s to the Peter Brötzmann Group and the Chicago Tentet. This disc presents a previously unreleased recording of a beautiful live duo performance from Osaka, 1997, which had been waiting in Brötzmann's..

"Bülent Arel's (1919-1990) work occupies a special place in the history of electronic music, with one thing being certain: Arel's work is still fresh, groundbreaking, and it always look outs for the next adventure in sound. Sub Rosa present a collection of his works here as part of their Early Electronic series. Bülent Arel was a Turkish-born American composer of electronic and contemporary classical music. He was also a devoted teacher, a sculptor, and a painter. From 1940 to 1947, Arel studied...

"Last time I heard Spunk was phenomenal! They are among the most exciting improvising groups in the world right now."-Fred Frith.

"When David Greenberger first embarked on what has become a life-long journey, drummer Chris Corsano was not yet five years old! In 1979, after graduating from art school in Boston, Greenberger took the job of activities director at the Duplex Nursing Home, an all-male elder care facility in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts, and began collecting the stories, poems and music reviews of its aged patients for what became his Duplex Planet project, an undertaking that would eventually encompass nearly 200 issues...

With Barbara Preisinger he created Scape Records and his own mastering studio Scape Mastering. The Con-Struct series is based off of Schnitzler's daily excursions through the...

This is a really great one, Krautrock fans. Don't miss this, which is somewhat unusual in the oeuvre and one of the late period great ones!

"Dieter Moebius and Conny Plank got to know each other through their work on Cluster's 1971 album and remained close friends until Plank's death in 1987. They made a congenial pair as musicians, as amply demonstrated by their first album as a duo, Rastakraut Pasta, originally released on Sky Records in 1980.

On this album, drums, electric guitars...

"Mental Experience present a reissue of Cozmic Corridors self-titled album. Cozmic Corridors is an underground kraut-kosmische monster, recorded and produced circa 1972-73 in Cologne by Toby "The Mad Twiddler" Robinson for his Pyramid label. The album was apparently released as an ultra-limited handmade edition back in the early '70s, but no original copies have surfaced (editor's note: which tells you everything you need to know about whether or not this was ever really released back in the day...)....
