"After venturing from Brazil to England to attend the Isle of Wight Festival, Brazilian band the Bubbles—the toast of the underground Rio de Janeiro scene, who had backed Tropicalist singer Gal Costa’s residence at the Sucata night club in that epochal year of 1970—decided to experiment with a heavier sound than that of their Brazilian cohorts. Step one, they changed their name to A Bolha. Then, loaded with verve and swagger (and fueled by drugs), they recorded their first album, which has secured a permane

"Forest Bathing, or Shinrin-yoku, is a term that means “taking in the forest atmosphere.” It was developed in Japan during the 1980s and has become a cornerstone of preventive health care and healing in Japanese medicine.
“Taking in the forest atmosphere” became the inspiration for A Hawk and A Hacksaw’s newest album. Their forest bath of choice is the Valle De Oro National Wildlife Refuge in New Mexico. This new album features ten original compositions by Heather Trost and Jeremy Barnes....

"In January 1973 an impromptu supergroup took over the airwaves on the Jazz Liisa series. Saxophonist Juhani Aaltonen, pianist Esa Helasvuo join bassist Teppo Hauta-Aho and drummer Edward Vesala in a special one-of-a-kind show of contemporary, revolutionary jazz."

"When No Pussyfooting was released in 1973 by two great pioneers like Eno and Fripp, that first whisper of their artistic association surprised many critics and fans. Yet, that kind of minimalist ambient sonority carried out by the two appeared in the ear like something absolutely new and innovative. Although nowadays we might be more accustomed to creative operations of this type, we are still fascinated, while listening, by the still possible achievement of relevant moments of musical epiphany, however...

Edition of 500.
"The Chicago-based string genius Joshua Abrams first talked to us about the idea of this album a while back. It took a couple of years to get together, but in a way, it's cool that it's being released in 2018 -- the 50th anniversary of the recording of the first free bass solo LP, Barre Phillips' Journal Violone. Issued by Opus One in the U.S., Music Man in the UK (as Unaccompanied Barre), and Futura in France (as Basse Barre), Phillips' groundbreaking album was a gorgeous and...

"The sprawling 40 minute title track is based on an Occitanian folk tune, and the unearthly acoustic opening with its overtone singing sounds like something that might have made its way on to a Werner Herzog soundtrack. Indeed once the guitars come in...

"Brand new album from Acid Mothers Temple on vinyl! Two side long pieces of otherworldly psych rock pressed on pink vinyl in an edition of 800. Features long time AMT vocalist and fan fave, Cotton Casino on vocals. Blazing, chaotic psych rock for these heady, heavy times!"

With the departure of long time bass/drum duo Shimura Koji and Tsuyama Atsushi, AMT now have a new rhythm section featuring two young Japanese musicians, Satoshima Nani on drums and S/T on bass.

This is a very, very good return to form and sound for The Pyramids. If you love the 70s stuff by The Pyramids, this spiritual jazz work will similarly thrill!

"The brand new album from cosmic jazz travellers The Pyramids, led by saxophonist Idris Ackamoor, An Angel Fell.
Produced by Malcolm Catto of The Heliocentrics, the album was recorded during an intense week at Quatermass studios in London and is one of the deepest, richest works yet from a band reaching their highest creative peak...

Acqua Fragile only made 2 albums before they broke up when their singer Bernardo Lanzetti joined P.F.M. They never had too much success during their lifetime, but their albums have a nice sorta P.F.M-styled charm. This is their first album, & most would agree that it's their best.

Together they bring their considerable pedigrees into play with unexpected and original results. Contradicting expectations of a massive blow-out of sound, everyone plays with remarkable, effective restraint. Atmospheric and layered, this...

This was a posthumous live release of 1973 material that was originally issued in the mid 1970's. For my money, this was their best 1970's - released album, as they really stretched out here, with beautiful soaring guitar leads on top of a solid rhythm...

One of the greats of the Krautrock greats, their intertwining dual guitars with synths and rhythm section made them truly the intergalactic Grateful Dead. Nice to see that they are still burning and - based on this - burning brightly!...

Pretty incredible looking vinyl reissue of this fine, somewhat obscure Italian progressive fusion outfit, that reproduces the incredibly groovy gimmick cover!

The band consists of Fender Rhodes, guitar, soprano sax, bass and drums. There is also a little bit of vocals on this one. It's surprising that their first album was recorded live, but I guess when you are a band without a record and you get to play as prestigious an event as Montreux, you make the most of it!

Originally released...

Agora were a somewhat obscure Italian progressive fusion outfit that somehow managed to squeak out two good albums on the Atlantic label in the mid 1970s.
Both albums were excellent quality, Italian jazz rock ala Perigeo, Il Baricentro, Weather Report, etc.
Now, after 40 years, original 70s members Ovidio Urbani (sax), Renato Gasparini (guitars) & Lucio Cesari (bass) are joined by new members Masimo Manzi (drums), Gabriele Possenti (acoustic guitar) and Gianni Pieri (cello) along with special...

One of the greats of an always great Swedish scene is the band Agusa; they manage to sound both modern and totally channel the spirit of the 70s at the same time. Highly recommended for progressive rock fans.

Beautiful, deluxe, gatefold sleeve on this very limited edition release on the desirable and always very limited Kommun2 label.

"This is my early frontrunner for album of the year and its going to be hard to beat. Agusa is an instrumental quartet from Sweden. The band is derived from members of Sveriges Kommuner & Landsting, Kama Loka and Hoofoot. This is a VERY retro sounding album that will appeal to fans of Kebnekajse, Pink Floyd, and perhaps even Anglagard. No symphonic elements - just....

This is the beautiful, gatefold sleeve, vinyl edition, released on the Kommun2 label, which is run by Agusa's head-man, Tobias Petterson!

"On Arrebato, their 8th album, Asheville's Ahleuchatistas embellish their trademark intensity with a more pensive and existential amble. These six pieces channel recollections of a natural kinship the band struck up with a number of communities they played to on an Iberian tour in early 2014. The resulting story threads together a suite of lyrical instrumentals showing a deepening meticulousness for structure�elastic and labyrinthine.

Spanish for "passionate outburst," Arrebato aptly evokes a...

"An obscure early band that gained recognition as one of the darkest of heavy German progressives. Little is known about Ainigma, except that they existed for some time before making their sole album DILUVIUM, and the truth is that Ainigma were actually quite typical of the more mainstream Krautrock of the era.
Ainigma played a raw and slightly messy kind o

Excellent, legit reissue of a hard-core Japanese modal jazz rarity. The 1975 original goes for over $1,000, but now it's available to anyone who enjoys that 1965-era Coltrane-type sound!

"The desire to discover and delve into new and unexplored areas of music has turned attention on the Japanese jazz scene of the 1970s, often regarded as its gilded age.

This was the first album of two by Aksak Maboul (later changed to Aqsak Maboul, just to fool people), which really wasn't a band, but just a studio project, mostly consisting of Mark Hollander-piano, Farfisa organ, Fender Rhodes piano, alto sax, bass clarinet, clarinets, circa 1977 primitive drum machine, etc. with Vincent Kenis-guitars, bass, piano, accordion and a few other guests on voice, guitars, etc.
