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...

Their 1st release, from 2013.

"Dada-minded insurrectionists hellbent on dismantling various genres then re-assembling them inside out with gleeful aplomb."-The Village Voice

"...I can safely call Cloud Becomes Your Hand one of the most exciting and wonderfully strange bands I've encountered in some time."-Stereogum, "Band To Watch"

"With brilliant melodies, blippy video-game sounds, and Syd Barrett-esque lyrics, Cloud Becomes Your Hand feels like a joyful journey through a strange

This is one of the rarest Sun Ra titles and also one of the wildest. This marks the 1st time it has been issued on legitimate CD and they used the best sources that they could research out.

"My Brother the Wind is actually more a companion piece to Night of the Purple Moon than its Vol. 2 namesake.
My Brother the Wind, Vol. 2 is split between Ra's solo Moog workouts and full Arkestra proceedings, while My Brother the Wind shares the same lineup as Night of the Purple Moon, with Marshall...

"This vinyl includes the original 1969 mix of UNCLE MEAT, exclusive here. Unavailable on CD, the album has been digitally restored by Vaultmeister, Joe Travers, UMRK."

This was the album that introduced me to 'funny music' and literally changed my life and is why I am at the computer writing descriptions of music to you and releasing records by other 'funny music' artists nearly 50 years later. I distinctly remember being handed this album by a trusted friend in 10th grade with the admonition to...

The final Mothers album was this fantastic but strange collection of unreleased studio and (mostly live) work from 1967-1969, contained in one of the greatest and most shocking rock and roll album covers of all time (rzzzz!).
It took me years to figure out that Frank was doing conductions with the band (conducted improvisations) many, many years before the word conduction was used. Did he invent the idea? I don't know, but if you know about someone doing this in 1968 or earlier, I'd love to know...

I first heard of STG from my old, old pal, Shawn Persinger (of Boud Deun) who asked me if I had heard guitarist Bon Lozaga's (of Gonzilla & Gong)) new band, because 'I just saw them and they're fantastic'!
So, I kept my ears open and also told Bon (another old friend) we'd love to stock their release when it comes out and here it is!
It's a mostly very hard hitting mix of in your face electric jazz and instrumental prog and some funky basswork.

"Making Faces" the debut CD from Soften The.

Frank's 1st solo album was recorded/edited together at the same time as We're Only In It For The Money, and shares some characteristics and actual recorded sound. It combines musique concrete techniques with orchestral music, and 'the voices in...

Some of you may remember Delia Gonzalez from "The Days Of Mars", her joint work with Gavin Russom, which is a great, modern day electronic music album that channels 1971-1975 but in an original way and think: Mother Mallard's Portable Masterpiece Co. (that's the main sound I hear), Klaus Schulze, Tangerine Dream, Manuel Gottsching.
After a very long time off and one solo piano album, she's back with this, a similar electronic album and one that is also hugely recommended by me if you like the 1st two..

This is a new project by the drummer of Mastodon, who shares vocals with bassist Troy Sanders. Drums, bass, 2 synthi performers and vocals give a sound like a full band version of Zombi!
