"This album represents the final album from legendary Daevid Allen, one of the most innovative music artists to emerge from this planet! Daevid Allen Weird Quartet is a recording project bringing together Daevid Allen, founder of The Soft Machine and Gong, with Don Falcone of Spirits Burning, Michael Clare of Daevid Allen's University of Errors, and drummers Trey Sabatelli (The Tubes) and Paul Sears (The Muffins). Elevenses is the second album by this band, following 2005's DJDDAY, which was released...

"Patrizio Alluminio was the keyboard player for the trio Alluminogeni. Their brand of Italian classical rock was in the same vein as the other similar trios - Le Orme, The Trip etc and is recommended to fans of this genre."

In addition to the...

Alphataurus were one of the (many) great 'one and done' Italian symphonic rock band and one of the most fondly remembered; once you have seen it, who could forget the amazing triple-gatefold 'Dove of War' lp jacket and the equally amazing music contained inside? Now, nearly 40 years after their 1973 album, three of the original members (the keyboardist, guitarist and drummer) have joined forces with a new vocalist, bassist and 2nd keyboardist to bring forth a new album which is a very strong effort of...

"With their roots as ex-Thrice Mice members, Altona wisely chose this new name (Altona is a town on the edge of Hamburg) when dropping the former band's classical edge in preference for a jazzier front.
On their debut Altona played a lively fusion that crossed

All throughout the late 70s and early 80s, this peculiarly titled album by this peculiarly titled artist (sometimes listed as Alvaro and sometimes listed as Alvaro The Chilean With The Singing Nose) was featured with glowing praise in the Recommended...

"Alvaro rides again."-Sounds, London, 1980.

"A fabulous collection of musicals and unmusicals, includes a recipe."-Time Out, London, 1980.

"Another classic piece of the mysterious puzzle that is Alvaro. Miss it at your own extreme personal peril. Edition of 400."

"First vinyl reissue of the second LP released by Alavaro Pena originally released in 1979 following the runaway success of his debut album, Drinkin My Own Sperm. Although recorded in Germany, Alvaro again employed his.

Still sealed, with a cut-out notch; never released on CD, this has the entire Arkestra on 3 tracks!

“Maryanne Amacher (1938-2009) was a composer of large-scale fixed-duration sound installations and a highly original thinker in the areas of perception, sound spatialization, creative intelligence, and aural architecture. She is frequently cited as a pioneer of what has come to be called "sound art", although her thought and creative practice consistently challenge key assumptions about the capacities and limitations of the genre. Amacher's work anticipates some of the most important developments in...

“Hence is the third collaborative release from Oren Ambarchi and Jim O'Rourke, following on from Behold. Building on the refined combination of electronics and acoustic instrumentation found on their previous releases, Hence presents two side-long pieces combining synthesizers, heavily effected guitar tones, and tabla rhythms played by special guest Uzhaan. On the first side, an explosive opening chord sends out ripples of sparse, irregularly pulsing guitar and synthesizer tones, aleatorically changing...

This is priced and marketed as an EP, but it’s nearly 30’ long, so it’s a pretty good deal.
This is similar to / working in a similar vein to Oren’s (utterly fantastic) Hubris release and anyone who enjoyed that (or driving electronics with a deep / trance feel) will enjoy this one!

“The three multi-instrumentalists collaborated with the goal of creating subtly shifting musical passageways: sonic routes that run between continents of musical category. The results are two variations of...

"Oren Ambarchi's Editions Mego release, Hubris, gets the remix treatment courtesy of electronic music legend Ricardo Villalobos. Villalobos expertly transforms Ambarchi's layered web of countless sustained and pulsating palm-muted guitars into a funky, mesmerizing and propulsive long-form piece."

"Black Truffle make Oren Ambarchi's Grapes From The Estate available once more on vinyl. Originally released on CD on Touch in 2004 (TO 061CD) and reissued on Southern Lord as a limited double-LP in 2006 during Ambarchi's tenure as a member of Sunn O))), Grapes From The Estate was a landmark release for Ambarchi, seeing him expand his sonic palette beyond the clipped, bass-heavy electric guitar tones he was known for at that point. Incorporating subtle layers of strings, keyboards, percussion over a...

Vinyl only release from a new band that features three well known bandleaders in the alternative scene of Norway, including most prominently, Lars Horntveth of Jaga Jazzist.

“Amgala Temple is the sound of three musical forces combined. The result is an overwhelming clash of spontaneity and control, improvisation and clairvoyance - all meshed together in a quest to make something radiant.
The mix of Lars Horntveth, Amund Maarud and Gard Nilssen is a wish come true for music fans, as they...

Hand numbered, very limited vinyl edition of only 300 copies!
Amoeba Split are a Spanish, progressive jazz/rock band with heavy Canterbury-scene influences. They won a lot of friends with their fine first album, and this one, after a number of years, is significantly even greater and has a larger instrumental palette, for them to choose from, making this sound a bit like another excellent Canterbury-esque album from Spain, the great 2nd album by Planeta Imaginario, 'Biomassa'! Highly recommended to...

"Overhead comes this thrum-thrum-thrum. They look up to see a plane circling just off the island. The door facing them opens and out pop two figures, tumbling down into the water. Lazily, without a care in the world, the plane turns north and flies away. Of course, the guys start...

"German progressive rock band Analogy released its sole classic, Analogy (1972), and even scored a deal for Italy but soon seemed to have faded into obscurity. Nobody really was aware of a recording named The Suite that happened around 1980. It presented the folky side of Analogy, who seemed at least quite creative for a time when electronic pop took over the whole music scene. Analogy went into the opposite direction and reached out for musical realms that have been visited by legendary English acts...

"The hypnotic 11-minute instrumental track builds slowly from distant, shuddering atmospherics to an imposing sound that is at once monolithic and spacious."-The Wall Street Journal

This is an album of ambient guitar wizardry from J.R. Bohannon..

“This is the first ever official physical release of the soundtrack to Lars Von Trier's controversial film Antichrist, originally released in 2009. Ten years after the film's initial release, the extreme, provocative performances from Willem Dafoe and Charlotte Gainsbourg in Antichrist still have the power to shock, repulse, and divide.
The sound design by Kristian Eidnes Andersen with Lars Von Trier was composed using only natural sounds and samples (including internal body recordings). Each...

This is one of the most pleasant surprises of symphonic rock to happen in the last decade: Jon Anderson meets up on a cruise ship with guitarist Roine Stolt and the best Yes-style album of the last 40 years was somehow born from those small beginnings.
Working by bouncing ideas and material back and forth, when both were satisfied with the results after 18 months of woodshedding, Roine went into the studio and cut the band tracks live with Tom Brislin (keyboards, who played with Yes on the Yes....

"On her Thrill Jockey debut, acclaimed guitarist Marisa Anderson's music is boundless. Anderson is undeniably a master of the North American traditions of country, folk, and blues on guitar. On Cloud Corner, Anderson expands on those styles as well as instrumentation. Written and recorded in a period of political and personal upheaval, the album is intended as a refuge, an ode to stillness in an era of ceaseless noise. The results are an album of remarkably intimate beauty.
The solo guitar work...

"Bureau B present a reissue of Jurriaan Andriessen's The Awakening Dream, originally released in 1977. Jurriaan Andriessen (1925-1996) was a Dutch composer. Although he was actually at home in classical music, he recorded three synthesizer albums in the late 1970s, the first of which, The Awakening Dream, is an outstanding excursion into experimental ambient and minimal music. Andriessen himself, 52 years of age at the time, called it a "trance symphony". The music - perhaps surprisingly for a...

"Berlin's Andromeda Mega Express Orchestra returns with its fourth album Vula. Having celebrated their ten-year anniversary with a stunning series of concerts in 2016, the 18-piece's new full-length showcases a stronger focus on harmony and melody -- and yet AMEO sound no less explosive or unpredictable than before. It arrives gently, with shimmering lights, soft winds, sashaying melodies, and of course, the isotherms and isotheres function just as they should: All of a sudden, lighting strikes amid the...

Beautiful, high quality, gatefold sleeve edition of their first album in 10 years. Includes a CD version of the album as well!

Legit, from the master-tapes reissue of this Finnish rarity from 1970. This was drummer Edward Vesala's first band, and he is joined by Harri Saksala-vocals, harmonica, Erero Lupari-guitars, Heimo Holopainen-bass. Since I also hear lots of keyboards....

"Apoteosi's very rare album contained relaxed symphonic rock with strong influences from early 18th century classical. Their music ranges from very quiet moments with acoustic guitar, string synthesizer, piano and flute to more powerful statements with bass, drums and electric guitar added in. Overall, there is a feeling of sophisticated beauty; if your taste is close to Renaissance, PFM & Genesis, this should appeal to you."-Scented Gardens Of The Mind

"Apoteosi were a very rare, if not the...

The fabulous Aquaserge return for their latest with a live album that features the extended version of the band.
Lovely, differently arranged and quite different overall versions of songs from their last two works. Hugely personally recommended!

"A well-kept secret until recently, Aquaserge has been a subterranean driving force in the international music scene.
The band's members have also been involved with Tame Impala, Stereolab, Melody's Echo Chamber, Aksak Maboul and Acid Mothers...

This short but lovely slab of vinyl-only Aquaserg was released towards the end of last year, but we only finally were able to stock it.
Should you start here? Only maybe. But if you are a fan, you gotta have it!

This compilation releases the group's earliest works, the EP "Progeria" from 2003 and their 1st full length, Far Out In Aradabia from 2004 with a fourth side of bonus tracks from 2006

"The love for Black Sabbath united two musicians in Trondheim, Norway back in 1997. Guitarists Jostein Smeby and Tommy Ingebrigtsen shared a common passion for the legendary Doom/Heavy Rock act and decided to put it on a cover band, setting the seeds of what would became Arabs In Aspic. They had a solid rhythm...

Beautiful, legitimate and fully licensed reissue.

"Arachnoid's only album is an amazing opus from 1978 that combined the strengths of other French symphonic groups like Shylock and Ange into a darkly futuristic and aggressive blend. Another...

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!

Classic, great big-band jazz-rock album from the 1970s, using an expanded version of Nucleus. It is based on the Balinese Pelog scale, and has some tremendously great moments. There were only a few records of this sort done in the 70's (probably due to their expense), but they all have a real charm to me.

Dagmar Krause-vocals
Chris Cutler-drums, electronics
Fred Frith-guitars, keyboards, violin, xylophone
Lovely, very high quality re-edition of this, the 2nd album by the Art Bears and one that perfectly reprints the look of the cover as it appeared only in the UK edition, with embossed, gold foil lettering on the front.
This was the 2nd and best known album by the successor band to Henry Cow, as it was released in the States by The Residents' Ralph label, in the early 80's and at the pea

Art Zoyd's early and great works have been unavailable for such a long time that it's too easy to forget what a strikingly original and amazing band they were in their prime.

One of the original R.I.O bands (they joined in the second wave of...

This is the band’s one and only release, originally on Phillips in 1977, by this French progressive rock quartet. Their music is typical somewhat dark-hued French symphonic / progressive. They are often compared to King Crimson, but I think they only resemble KC in terms of obvious inspiration, but I don’t think they mostly sound like them.

"'Odyssee' is the one and only album from this French quartet. It has become one of those albums that many prog fans have heard of but have never actually...

This is a CLASSIC and was where I discovered the wonders of Manuel Gottsching!
The sixth album by Ash Ra Tempel, this was actually Manuel Gottsching's first solo album. Recorded at home with a Teac 4 track, & released in 1974, it's an absolute classic of echo'd, multi-tracked guitar trance/space-out wizardry. Three long, appropriately named tracks ("Echo Waves," "Quasarsphere," "Pluralis"). This belongs in the collection of anyone interested in space or trance music.

"Manuel played his...

"2015 live recording from the Supersense Festival in Melbourne, previously unreleased, featuring a supergroup of Manuel Göttsching, Ariel Pink, Oren Ambarchi, and Shags Chamberlain playing material from classic Ash Ra Tempel releases, 1972's Schwingungen (and 1973's Seven Up."

"Out of the blue -- I was invited to perform in Melbourne, Australia. It happened thanks to my dear old friend Mick Glossop, who made the suggestion to Sophia Brous, at the time the curator of a music-festival called...

“Initially released in 1982 as part of the Wave Notation series (which includes Hiroshi Yoshimura's Music For Nine Postcards), Still Way is, without a doubt, a seminal Japanese environmental/ambient/minimalism album, often mentioned alongside Midori Takada's Through The Looking Glass (1983) and Hiroshi Yoshimura's Green (1986) as one of the genre's most important pieces. "Like the moment of stillness, after the wind passes through the garden, when the rain stops for a brief second..." Notably inspired...

“A reissue of Robert Ashley's Private Parts, originally issued in 1978. Among Lovely Music's first six releases, it came to be known as "the yellow record".
No one had ever heard anything like it; Ashley presented an unvarnished exposition of the inner workings of a man's mind. And on the other side, those of a woman. These two episodes were the foundation for Ashley's seven-part opera, Perfect Lives, which was performed by his ensemble throughout the 1980s and was completed for television broadcast..

“I'd Rather Be Lucky Than Good is a new recording collaboration of Sam Ashley and Werner Durand. Sam Ashley's mystic parables imbued with benevolent humor are drawn from a lifelong pursuit of a present-day shamanism. Werner Durand's wind work on invented and traditional instruments stems from the minimalist tradition, routed through his unique study of obscure world musics.
The two artists first met in Berlin in 1984 while Sam was touring Atalanta with Robert Ashley's opera company, with whom he...

"Astral TV is a new project from Causa Sui synth- and electronics-wiz Rasmus Rasmussen and fellow inner-space traveler Keith Canisius. On Chrystal Shores, they create fluctuating aural landscapes, ranging from subtle and earthy, to celestial and downright paranormal. Inspired in part by classic synth-scores, vintage European "kosmische", and modern drone, the duo has created the soundtrack for a heady, sonic trip. Like with the best new age music, these sounds can provide solace and regenerative energies...

“Rasmus Rasmussen (Aerosol, Causa Sui) and Keith Canisius present another delightful set of Astral TV tracks with Travelling The Circuits.
Since their debut album, Chrystal Shores from 2017, the Copenhagen-based duo have refined and perfected their approach to making semi-improvised synthesizer music. Musically it doesn't get much more pure than this. From their vast assemblage of synthesizers -- that is, vintage, modern, digital, analog, and modular synthesizers -- the two producers are squeezing...

One of the very best albums from the 70s Spanish progressive scene is now finally reissued from the original master tapes for the very first time [the previous reissue was a live version of the same songs and not the original album!]. Reviure was the band’s third and final release and it arrives here with a beautiful textured cover and 8 page color booklet with liner notes.

“Intense riffage, tons of great analog synth work, fiery guitar playing, and that’s just the opening song! One of those prog..

This is the one and only album by this French symphonic rock band from 1976.

"This is a nice French band, from the classic Crypto label. Their sound is quite derivative of Yes, but they sound amazing, since they don't use keyboards! Well... they *do* use them, but it's quite hard to notice, and there's no keyboardist credited on the album! The bass/drums work is amazing, and the guitarist pulls out some very Howe-esque riffs. The vocals are soft and gentle, very "French"...this is straight...

The first album by this heavy Hammond organ trio, consisting of Nick Graham-bass and vocals, Vincent Crame-Hammond organ and Carl Palmer-drums. Carl and Vincent had played together in The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown.
This is a classic of British proto-progressive hard rock, with fantastic organ playing by the best organist in the biz, along with Jon Lord! Da Rooster were just about to hit the big time when Carl bailed for ELP.

The second Atomic Rooster album of heavy Hammond organ and guitar-led rock, and possibly even better than the 1st.
At this point, the band consisted of John Cann-guitar/vocals, Vincent Crame-Hammond organ and piano and Paul Hammond-drums. Really good proto-prog hard rock from 1970, with fantastic organ playing by one of the best there ever was!

"... discerning ears will find that Auburn Lull's rich tapestry is as dangerously hypnotic and transporting as it is soothing."-Tiny Mix Tapes

"The reclusive midwesterners return from dormancy with nine stunning, elegantly sparse tracks that showcase the band at its most focused, melodic, and mysterious. While distinctly sounding like Auburn Lull, Hypha veers into uncharted territory, delivering surprises at every turn. The hallmark cavernous guitars and vast, slow-motion expanses, though still...
