New, much lower price!
Avant chamber-rock with R.I.O. type leanings and modern production touches and values. Very good stuff from a band who has been doing it their own way for nearly 20 years!

"Four years after their fairly subdued ‘The Shepherd’s Dream’ album, Die Anarchistische Abendunterhaltung, commonly known as DAAU, are finally ready to launch a new recording. ‘Eight Definitions’ is the seventh album by the Antwerp based band in twenty years.

Since their last record, DAAU’s...

So, around 1995 or so, there was this really great album on a tiny label of this young band who were obviously well trained classically and who fused pop, eastern-european folk and classical music, with jazz and a punk attitude.
Suddenly in 1998 they reappear as DAAU on SONY Classics (!), with a very good album that included lots of musical guests. Of course *that* didn't last, so they are back on a little label again (their own, I think) for this release which celebrates 25 years of their musical...

"Dalton's debut album Riflessioni: Idea D'Infinito clocks in at ridiculous 28+ minutes, but every minute of it is quality time. Affinity to early UK prog is noticeable in the grimy, blues-influenced guitar riffs and leads, typically breathy and...

Gatefold, legit reissue of an album recorded in 1969 and originally released by Wolfgang himself in 1970 and then later licensed to and released by Brain in 1972!
The band is:
Wolfgang Dauner-piano, organ, flute
Siegfried Schwabb-guitar
Eberhard Weber-bass, cello
Fred Braceful & Roland Wittich-drums

Proto-kozmigroov, with major psychedelic and soulful moves and great, grooving, double-drumming! Comparable to, and absolutely as good as Brian Auger's work of the same era.

Read about this and be amazed. And then also please do realize that it doesn't live up to the anticipation. It probably couldn't under any circumstances, but it just doesn't. But it's still a very, very interesting historical piece.

Betty Davis - vocals
John McLaughlin - guitar
Herbie Hancock - keyboards

For over 20 years, composer and multi-instrumentalist Michael P. Dawson has been quietly and slowly releasing albums that fall somewhere between atmospheric / constructed sound and avant progressive rock.
In addition to possibly being his best yet, this one features a splendid cover illustration that really gets you in the mood for the sound contained within and looks really beautiful in the lp format!!

"Paleozoic is a sonic exploration of the period when complex life forms first appeared...

"Michael P. Dawson is a San Francisco-based composer and multi-instrumentalist with one foot in the classical avant-garde and the other in progressive rock. The eight pieces on The Insect Garden use woodwinds, guitars, Moog synthesizers and computer electronics in a fusion of ambient, electronica and prog sounds. Dark, spectral atmospherics rub shoulders with hyperkinetic odd-metered beats, experimental electronic sounds, and a closing slice of Crimsonesque heavy prog....

Allan Botschinsky-trumpet, flugelhorn
Eero Koivistoinen-tenor & soprano sax
Esko Linnavalli-piano, electric piano
Niels-Henning Orsted-Pedersen-bass
Esko Rosnell-drums, percussion
"One of the rarest pieces of Finnish jazz, this 1975 fusion album features a constellation of Finnish and Danish stars."

Please note: all copies have a slightly creased corner. It's not bad, just not perfect.

Pop/not pop (most pop bands don't invite Wadada Leo Smith onstage to perform an entire show with them on the spur of the moment).

"Experiencing one emotion at a time is a luxury of the past. Think back to that moment at the women's march or the pro-science rally, when you spied a small child holding a handmade sign that read "I love naps but I stay woke" or "Boys will be boys good humans" or "May the facts be with you." How adorable! How upsetting! How the hell are they going to make it to...

"Moritz R®, Kurt Dahlke aka Pyrolator, and Frank Fenstermacher have met in the studio after 25 years and recorded a new album. One can claim that Der Plan was one of the most powerful German bands during the time of musical departure at the beginning of the 1980s. Der Plan was always more than a band: a kind of three-headed Renaissance man, for whom visual art was just as important as music.
The Ata Tak label, founded by the three members, was one of the first continental European indie labels and...

"More demented, brain-damaging Turkish electro-saz & synth drums galore by the mighty Derdiyoklar duo, originally released in 1984! Anadolu Pop doesn’t get weirder than this! These two Turkish guys armed with electro-saz, guitar, drums and synthetizers were hitting the Turkish market in Germany where they lived, playing their sets of traditional flavoured electro-folk in weddings and circumcision feasts for Turkish emigrants in Germany. That crazy is the story, that crazy is their sound!!!"

Six cosmiche/Berlin-style synthesizer pieces by syntheisist Dorothea Raukes, with 1981-type digital touches. Overall, this is a very, very solid electronic music album.

Unbelievable price on this beautiful, HEAVY, double lp, gatefold vinyl package!

"Ilpo Väisänen (Pan Sonic) and Dirk Dresselhaus (Schneider TM) retitle themselves Die Angel for Entropien 1, their eighth LP of electro-acoustic music together, and the duo's debut for Shapednoise's Cosmo Rhythmic label. Accompanied by skilled improviser Oren Ambarchi on two tracks, Die Angel model a complex physicality through raw, elemental inputs, exploring a flux of reactive feedback processes and mutating, unstructured sonic states generated from crackling fusions of electronics, drums, electric...

"Produced for the legendary Pilz label and engineered by Conny Planck in 1971. Dies Irae were a heavy progressive group who recorded their sole album for Pilz before the label fell into the hands of Rolf-Ulrich Kaiser. Dominated by blues, 'First' is a hea

Quite excellent archival release by a French underground/progressive group from the mid/late 70s who never managed to release anything until this! A listen to the youtube clip will tell you what you need to know!

"This record is the first record of this group to be released (not to be confused with the German namesake training krautrock record release on the Pilz label in 1971). It consists of tracks recorded on stage and in the studio from 1976 and 1978, when Dies Irae was at the top of its game..

"Intents And Purposes" has long been revered as Bill Dixon's singular masterpiece. Out of print for years, the late trumpet innovator's magnum opus has been lovingly remastered and reissued on vinyl by Superior Viaduct in a package that replicates the original 1967 issue, providing an important opportunity to reevaluate this seminal work.
As a former student of painting as well as music, Dixon's conceptual organization of sound relies heavily on color, shade and texture, with a keen sensitivity to...

RED AND BLUE STARBURST COLORED VINYL "It's no secret that Stranger Things has been receiving widespread acclaim.

Dog Faced Hermans were a fantastic, Scottish complex-punk band who existed for a decade between the mid 80s and mid 90s. The most obvious band to compare them to is The Ex.
I loved these guys and drove over 60 miles to see them in 1993 playing at a hair salon; and it was worth it!

"This is the first time it's been available since its release nearly 30 years ago, and this edition features the two bonus tracks which were only available on the German version at the time.

"By no means a release of new or current Don Cab material (and originally released in 1999), Singles Breaking Up (Vol. 1) offers quite a range of the band's history to appreciate."

Has it really come to this? Really? Shane Paris (co)releases a new album and none of the hype sheets mention Shane's decade and a half-long run with the incredible Ahleuchatistas? Sigh. Nice record too!

"Much has been made of the nesting compulsion that overtakes expecting parents. It's fair to suggest that this album owes its name to the fact that Asheville NC residents Tashi Dorji and Shane Parish were both looking forward to parenthood when they made it, and not much of a stretch to say that...

I saw this excellent and sensitive guitar/drums duo in the last couple of months and the show was great. If modern improvised music is your thing, this is highly recommended!

"As live albums go, Tashi Dorji and Tyler Damon nail it down. No matter the crowd -- head thrashers, Instagram zombies, shaken jazzniks -- the shadow lines of feedback and bombastic percussive bombs are always at peak intensity.

Very nice, very song oriented spacey rock music with nice melodies and good singing; only thing it makes me think of comparing it to is like an intergalactic Emmit Rhodes!

"Anneli Drecker's Revelation For Personal Use is very much a follow-up to the huge artistic success of Rocks & Straws, an ode to her native town and region, and again consists of songs based on lyrics by Norwegian cult poet Arvid Hanssen and translated to English by artist and writer Roy-Frode Løvland.

A beautiful reissue edition on the always great Superior Viaduct label of one of his great, earlier releases.
I really like Dreyblatt's work from this time period. He would have a small ensemble work with mostly re-tuned instruments which he would have them bow and strike according to his score, until the room fills with waves and waves of sound. This is quite similar to what I saw.

On the heels of Kayo Dot’s 2016 album Plastic House On Base Of Sky, New York City based avant-garde musician Toby Driver sustains his inexhaustible output with a solo album titled Madonnawhore.

Madonnawhore represents a foray into traditional songwriting, stripped of the...

This reissues an impossibly rare Brit-jazz album and one that is just as great as it is rare! If seeing the names of the players makes you want to own this, or if you've heard of this one, but never heard it and wondered if it is any good, stop what you are doing and grab it.

"This is a really thrilling, wonderful and profoundly enjoyable al

"The legendary French painter and sculptor Jean Dubuffet exalted naivety and spontaneity in visual art, and his brazenly experimental recordings on Musical Experiences evince the same spirit through sound. He once reflected, “Certain unexpected windfalls ... come of improvising on an instrument one doesn’t really know how to use.”
Dubuffet, who famously founded the art brut (or outsider art) movement, began making music in the early 1960s with avant-garde figure Asger Jorn. With no training, they...

This is a very good modern psychedelic / stoner album by a one and done band. There's some vocals, but it is predominantly instrumental and total focused on the (excellent) guitar work.
