“This is Julian Cope with members of Spiritualized, playing heavy, psychedelic punk! Wah-wah-ed up to the max, these - mostly lengthy - pieces groove along with a swagger and abandon that is rarely heard of these days. Herein, Copey rolls together his longtime love affair with the hallowed Stooges/Velvets/MC5 trio along with a new found love for all things proto-metal, particularly the 3 founding fathers of HM; Blue Cheer, Black Sabbath and Grand Funk Railroad. I dare say our OTT Japanese friends like...

This is different and fairly unique, as it is Inuit throat singing in a bit more modern clothing than what is thought of as traditional Inuit vocal music.
Tanya Tagaq was born in 1977 and raised in an Inuit community. She studied at Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Halifax. While there, she took an interest in traditional Inuit throat singing, a multiphonic and percussive form that is customarily performed by two people. Thus she was obliged to teach herself a solo variation and later...

“The Incredible String Band, a psychedelic folk band formed by Clive Palmer, Robin Williamson and Mike Heron in Scotland in 1966. The band built a considerable following, especially in the British counterculture, notably with their albums The 5000 Spirits or the Layers of the Onion, The Hangman's Beautiful Daughter, and Wee Tam and the Big Huge.
They became pioneers in psychedelic folk and, through integrating a wide variety of traditional music forms and instruments, in the development of world...

“This collaboration between Katie Jane Garside (Queen Adreena) and Chris Whittingham is often categorized under folk, but that is far too limiting a description of the music the pair has created. While the arrangements are largely built around acoustic guitar and the occasional slide, a healthy dose of atmospherics can also be found here and there. And Katie Jane's vocals are simply beautiful throughout.
For me, this album has much in common with 2007's Robert Plant-Alison Krauss collaboration on...

“It goes without saying that a collection of demos is only for the diehard, only for the cult, but XTC has the kind of cult that ravenously seeks this material out, craving every note the group has recorded. So, it makes perfect sense for XTC to release collections of demos of the two Apple Venus albums, since it not only makes them easier to find, they get to profit from it as well.
Where Homespun, the companion volume to Apple Venus, revealed that the songs were essentially finished when the demos..

I never heard the Groundhogs back in their early 70s heyday, so it was with great pleasure that I finally heard all of their classics and I have to report back that I wish that I had heard them then!
This is their second album, originally released in 1969 and this is excellent progressive blues. There were greater things still to come, but this still has good songs, good playing and good ideas.

“50th Anniversary limited edition die cut sleeve with liner notes from Mojo's Dave Henderson...

Another great release – vinyl only this time – by this fine, Baltimore-based duo of synths and drums who named themselves after a mis-spelling of Faust's communal home and studio. Hey, it's the thought that counts, right?
Seriously, anyone into floaty electronics will love this. This is a shockingly great space album for 2018. Recommended.

"Towards the Shadow, the third full-length from Wume, the Baltimore duo of April Camlin (drums, vocals) and Albert Schatz (keyboards, electronics), offers.

This is a previously unreleased set of music from 2006 that is only seeing release now.
David Cross was in King Crimson from 1972-1974 and Andrew Booker has played in No-Man, Sanguine Hum and Peter Bank’s group Harmony in Diversity, which is where he was when he met Cross.
There’s really good development and flow on this one and why it stayed unreleased for so long definitely has nothing to do with the quality of the sounds!

"I met Andrew some years ago when the David Cross Band were...

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)...

Tull’s first and there is some great stuff here, even if much bluesier than what was to come.

“Digitally remastered edition of the legendary band's 1968 debut with the Steven Wilson remix of the original, plus rare recordings and new mixes.
Includes the original album and bonus tracks remixed in stereo by Steven Wilson plus: live BBC sessions recorded in 1968, original mono mix and original 1968 U.K. stereo mix and original album and bonus tracks remixed by Steven Wilson in 4.1 DTS and AC3..

Live at the Second British Rock Meeting, Germersheim, Germany - May 22, 1972

“The sound quality is of astonishing fidelity for a live recordings from the early 1970s and features the ONLY known recordings of the band improvising!
The band had just released its Phantasmagoria album and the line-up was:
Sonja Kristina
Darryl Way
Francis Monkman
Florian Pilkington-Miksa
Mike Wedgwood

The last track is an extended jam and a version of the band’s hit Vivaldi – last

This wonderful recording captures in sound and vision a very special concert staged at the Keswick Theatre in Glenside PA, USA on 27th October 2017. Renaissance perform an extensive set of classic material with the Renaissance Chamber Orchestra, an ensemble especially formed for a series of American concerts.
Annie Haslam comments: “Renaissance has touched so many hearts across land and sea, for what seems to be most of a lifetime now, in the performance of this exquisite and unique music. I cannot...

“Recorded on 18th November 1971 at the Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium in Edmonton, Canada, the album captured a truly magical performance by Gary Brooker (vocals, piano), B.J. Wilson (drums), Chris Copping (organ and harpsichord), Alan Cartwright (bass) and Dave Ball (guitar), the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra and the Da Camera Singers. Classic Procol Harum material such as 'Conquistador', 'Whaling Stories', 'A Salty Dog' and the epic 'In Held 'Twas in I' were beautifully arranged by Gary Brooker and...

Now you can get all four initial Gryphon albums all together in one place! While they are all pretty different, they are also all pretty great in differing ways! Highly recommended if you don’t already have them!

“One of the most original groups to emerge in the Progressive era, Gryphon came together at the instigation of Royal College of Music students Richard Harvey and Brian Gulland, initially as a vehicle to fuse traditional English music with Medieval and Renaissance music influences...

“Beyond the Stars sees John and Nick on an epic journey through time and place, from wistful reminiscing about happier times to a vision of a dystopian future. The songs take you on a rollercoaster ride showcasing Nick Fletcher's incredible virtuosity on the guitar alongside John's trademark flute. Their writing partnership, first featured on the John Hackett Band album We Are Not Alone, goes from strength to strength and Beyond the Stars shows them to be a musical force to be reckoned with. The duo are...

First of two much enjoyed & sought after instrumental symphonic rock releases by this guitar/bass, keyboards & drums trio. Their sound was obviously influenced by King Crimson (guitarist Frdrick L'Epe later went on to found & lead Philharmonie, a very King Crimson influenced band), and, in turn, they are obvious influences on some of the modern symphonic rock bands, especially Anglagard. This is comprised of two long tracks & a 3rd short track. If you are exploring classic 1970's French progressive...

“An early-70's French entry with strong Magma links.It all started in late-60's, when keyboardist Jean-Pol Asseline and drummer Thierry Blanchard played with bassist Gerard Prévost, future member of Zao, and participated in several Jazz-linked concerts, before deciding to form a regular band. Asseline and Blanchard were joined by organist Alain Monier, bassist Serge Lenoir and sax player Alain Hatot, forming Guige. They were rehearsing at Monier's family basement and were discovered by CBS, signing a...

While they last, this is $7.00 off the regular price!

Written by Gilbert Artman (Lard Free, Urban Sax), Quad Sax is a miniature distillation of the ideas of Urban Sax; 4 saxophones playing spacey, hocket- riddled music with some percussives.
This is the only material available at non-collector prices of Artman's fantastic Urban Sax style music, so even though it doesn't quite reach the heights of Urban Sax, due to the much smaller lineup, it's still pretty necessary.

“Bill Brovold's Stone Soup's Michael Goldberg Variations is a disc of music that is generally quite introspective and quiet. Bill Brovold, per the liner note, utilized the input of artists Michael Goldberg in creating a piece of music that is Minimalist without being meandering or even repetitive. A four or five note motif is played on an acoustic guitar, around and along and beside which various guests are heard adding their own musical additions. Guitarist Mark Ormerod goes first, finger picking some love

You know Bill as the leader of Larval. This is, apparently, a release of things recorded some years ago, as it was recorded in Detroit, and Bill left Detroit 15 years ago!
And many of the old Larval’s appear here as well.
Bill Brovold: Home-mades, Guitar, Lap Steel, Drums/Percussion, Bass, Piano, Casio Keys, Organ & Bells with Mark Ormerod, Kurt Zimmerman, Marko Smith, Bob Hecker, Gregg Courtney, Luis Resto, James Ilgenfritz III, Johnny Evans, Gustav Brovold & Lucas Macauley....

“Within a month of About Face’s release, Gilmour and band set out on the road to tour the record, a jaunt which lasted from March 31 to July 16, '84, covering Europe and North America. On 24th April the entourage performed an electric show at Stockholm's Johanneshovs Isstadion, which captured the essence of the entire tour better than any other date on the outing. Featured on this double CD package is a perfect FM broadcast recording of this Swedish concert, including the entire show which is now ...

So wonderful that this great album is back in print! Hugely recommended.

“In 1970, the members of the Art Ensemble of Chicago were living as expatriates in Paris. The group had only recently expanded to its permanent quintet status with the addition of drummer/percussionist Don Moye when they were asked by New Wave director Moshe Misrahi to provide the soundtrack for his movie, Les Stances a Sophie. The music was never used in the film but, luckily, it was recorded. The result was one of the...

“Hidden Parts are an Italian band formed in 2008 in Parma risen from the ashes of Parts, an industrial rock ensemble active from 1992 to 2001.
The band has developed an original technique based on the interaction between drums and bass. Music ranges on the border of different genres, while always maintaining a strong rock influence.

SOME THINGS TO LISTEN FOR FROM HP:
1. NEW HIERARCHY
It is the rhythmic section (bass and drums) that leads and gives meaning to the compositions. The...

“When The Muffins broke up, I decided to start a band of rotating musicians that could express the old AmeriCanterbury sound that I thought The Muffins had been slipping away from for some time. Manna/Mirage is that collective that I hope is doing just that. The first album, “Blue Dogs”, consisted of half of the compositions (my pieces) that I removed from what was another Muffins album in progress. This second Manna/Mirage album, “Rest of the World”, is an album all on its own, not culled from another...

The second and final of the 'second wave' line-up of 5uus (basically Dave Kerman, Bob Drake and Sanjay Kumar + guests). This is considered by many people to be their best period and I would probably agree.

"Second installment from monster band 5UU's, featuring rock complexity, extraordinary production (by bassist and singer Bob Drake) and high energy precision mixed with eccentric song-writing. People that work this hard are becoming an endangered species. Extraordinary."-Chris Cutler

Lol Coxhill-soprano sax
Charles Hayward-drums
Hugh Hopper-bass
Orphy Robinson-vibes, steel drums

Robert Wyatt-cornet

The first release (and sadly the only one) by this improvising group of established figures from the creative rock and improvised music scene in Britain. They've been together for a few years now, plays shows when circumstances permit, and it's great that they've finally documented something. This pretty quickly finds its feet, finds a groove and keeps.

A pretty wonderful collection of works for Ondes Martenot (played by Nadia Ratsimandresy) and piano (played by Matteo Ramon Arevalos).

“The ondes martenot is an early electronic musical instrument. It is played with a keyboard or by moving a ring along a wire, creating wavering, theremin-like sounds. A player of the ondes martenot is called an ondist. The ondes martenot was invented in 1928 by the French inventor Maurice Martenot. Martenot was inspired by the accidental overlaps of tones...

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...

The below is the best ‘description’ I could find of this percussion / laptop oriented album. It doesn’t tell you how good it is, so I’m telling you how good it is! CD and vinyl have completely different covers!

“For more than a decade, experimental percussionist and sound artist Eli Keszler has dismantled the idea of what a drum can be and how it should sound. He’s done this on enormous scales, turning Boston’s Cyclorama building and a Louisiana water tower into makeshift monolithic instruments...

“The Last Hurrah!!'s Los Angeles started out as a commission work for the Vossajazz festival, and was performed in Voss in western Norway in March 2018. A far cry from Los Angeles, but to mastermind and founder HP Gundersen there are no boundaries in music and such differences are only sources of inspiration and natural parts of his vast musical universe. For the previous album Mudflowers, HP Gundersen "found" and recruited the perfect singer in Maesa Pullman, daughter of famed actor Bill Pullman...

“Limited edition of 3000, 6CD set.
Audio verité recordings (mastered by the incomparable Denis Blackham) of Suicide playing live from September 1977 to August 1978.
These recordings cover most of their early shows at CBGBs and Max's Kansas City, plus their first-ever tour across Europe and the UK, these being their dates outside the USA. As you will hear, a crucial year in Suicide's development as both musicians and performers and their mission to stretch the label of punk rock to the very...

“Presented here, the definitive reissue of a lauded and misunderstood Krautrock album, German Oak's Down in the Bunker. The release has been fetishized and demonized, lauded and misunderstood for nearly four decades. In this definitive reissue of the album, the German Oak trio -- together again after 30 years apart -- have approved the remastering of their 70s music; finally tell the story behind the creation of their dark, brooding album -- and the occult-obsessed record collector behind the original...

“Featuring Henry Kaiser and Ed Pettersen on guitars. Over the last few weeks, I’ve been checking out a variety of guitarists, both live and on record, realizing how different each and every one of them are and how incredible they can be. Check out this list: Nels Cline, Joe Morris, John Schott and Will Bernard (live at either Stone’s), Nicola Hein & Nico Soffiato (here at DMG) and Derek Bailey, Ben Monder (on Dan Weiss ' new CD), Mary Halvorson & Alexander Noice (on CD’s). Each guitarist sounds unique...

“Jawn [jän]: noun. A slang terminology from Philadelphia. All-purpose term for a person, place or thing
If there’s one thing the acclaimed bassist knows, it’s that when it comes to grit there’s no better resource to draw from than his own hometown, Philadelphia. So, McBride turned to one of the city’s most beloved colloquialisms to christen his latest project, Christian...

Robert's 2003 album builds upon the work of Schleep, with many of the same collaborators. It's a very long work by his standards; over 75' of music!
This is long out of print in physical format. We have these copies, with a small mark through the barcode, at a special price while they last!

“Cuckooland, Robert Wyatt's first full-length of new material since 1997's Shleep is no less mischievous, witty, and poignant. As has become his custom, Wyatt offers a set of 16 new songs seemingly...

“Now for Braxton and Teitelbaum. The only way I think you'll be put off is if you hate the sound of the contra bass clarinet, which I think has a wonderful sound. It actually has a much richer sound than the contra bass sax, which is an instrument that Braxton drags out now and again these days. I've heard that on some occasions Braxton will play this instrument with notes not too far apart in range and also in rapid succession. When he does this, the notes get blurred together because at this extremely...

Our second release by Piero Milesi, this is a soundtrack to a ‘video opera’ from 1987, in collaboration with composer Daniel Bacalov.
We are very happy to have a vinyl version of this electronic release made available, in collaboration with Soave Records and Daniel Bacalov, for its 30th anniversary!!

“La Camera Astratta is the result of the amazing collaboration between Piero Milesi e Daniel Bacalov with the experimental theatre-performance of the Studio Azzurro and Giorgio Barberio...

“Conny Plank died when his son Stephan was only thirteen years old. The opening stages of this music documentary about the pioneering music producer, directed by Stephan with Reto Caduff, see Stephan embarking on a journey to discover more about his father. The footage, of differing cities and modes of transportation is underscored by one of Plank’s earliest and most seminal productions, ‘Hallogallo’ by Neu!. The footage conveys visually the cinematic feeling of motion, urbanity, and the modern that is...

Basta is double bassist and composer Joris Vanvinckenroye, who is the bassist and also the composer of Aranis! In 1008, he created Basta, a project that fetured him on multi-tracked double bass.
Now, post-Aranis, he presents Basta!2, which is a duo of himself and flautist Jana Arns (also from Aranis and also his wife). Using live looping techniques and more, he layers the sound and gets a lovely orchestra ambiance. The video explains it all!....
