Not sure why it took about 10 previous albums and tours for this to happen, but Claudio Simonetti and HIS version of Goblin have finally released a record of new material, all of which sort of fits into the horror soundtrack mode that they are best known for!

“The Devil Is Back is the new full album of Claudio Simonetti's Goblin. The album is a perfect mix of progressive ro

CASE IN POINT!
Here, Claudio and his new batch of Goblins make new re-recordings of Goblin’s best known tracks from their 70s horror films soundtracks.

“Second album of the greatest hits of Claudio Simonetti's Goblin with some unreleased as a rarity. The album contains historical songs such as: – Roller and Aquaman from the Goblin album Roller – Opera, Non Ho Sonno, Death Farm, soundtracks of the homonymous films by Dario Argento – Gamma, a song written by Claudio’s father, Enrico Simonetti, a very successful theme song of the homonymous TV drama – Cut And Run, Simonetti’s soundtrack from the film Inferno in Diretta / Cut and Run directed by Ruggero...

“The inimitable GYBE returns with another soundtrack for our times.

"Pennsylvania native Keith Kenniff's output as Goldmund has established him as one of the preeminent composers of minimal piano-based ambient music alongside peers like Hauschka, Dustin O'Halloran, and even Ryuichi Sakamoto, who himself once described Kenniff's work as "so, so, so beautiful". Hyperbolic as it may sound, Goldmund's newest collection Occasus may be his most exquisite yet. Where his previous recordings trod faithfully and sincerely on paths of dimly lit, polaroid-esque nostalgia, Occasus...

This beautiful, legit reissue includes a gatefold sleeve!
This album has an interesting history and is sort of the band's 1st and 2nd album simultaneously.
Trauma was originally recorded and released in 1970, but the band was unhappy with the work and soon after re-worked and re-recorded the album with English lyrics and a harder 'progressive hard rock' sound with nice organ and guitar work.
This album is best known for the 13' title track, which is a heavy, psychedelic mix of Guru Guru and...

This was the second Gong release and the first one that actually sounds like Gong-the-band soundtrack for the film "Continental Circus" by Jérôme Laperrousaz.
The band is:
Daevid Allen-guitar, vocals
Gilli Smyth-vocals
Didier Malherbe-sax, flute
Christian Tristch-bass
Pip Pyle-drums
And you can hear the beginnings of the greatness that reached full fruition on Camembert here!

Being a humongous fan of Gong in high school and discovering them just about the time that Daevid left and they imploded, my sorrow was great. But only a couple of years after they broke up they had the first (of what would be many, many) reunion, but this one was special as it featured the entirety of the 'classic' line up of the band that recorded Angel's Egg and You, which were keystone records of my listening at that time. Being a twerp kid and this being before the instantaneous internet told you...

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..

"After the broad success of “Bite My Blues”, Canadian saxophonist Peter Van Huffel’s Berlin band Gorilla Mask is back with more music; not to cover the foot imprints of his previous work but going beyond a good number of steps. You can’t say anymore that this project consists of a mix of jazz with punk and metal – the kind of sonic assault heard on “Iron Lung” has an identity of its own, inc

"Gösta Berlings Saga from Stockholm, Sweden return with their sixth studio album. “Konkret Musik” contains 12 explosive tracks filled with experimental instrumental rock, showcasing a truly unique mix of progressive rock, synth minimalism and otherworldly melodies. Dystopian yet hopeful, maximal yet minimal: “Konkret Musik” will not leave anyone unaffected.”

The long-awaited fourth release by this excellent, modern avant/progressive rock band. This is highly recommended to everyone who has been following them since their first great release, Detta Har Hänt, as well as fans of dark-hued, instrumental rock, such as Guapo, Corima, Makajodoma, etc.

"180-gram LP version with embossed chessboard artwork print and printed inner sleeve."
This was originally released in 1981, & is a single piece of really trancey, hypnotic electronics with some nice, very subtle changes going on, & Manuel's (Ash Ra Tempel) guitarwork overlaid on it. I know that some folks find it too minimal, but for me, this is one of the great trance Berlin albums of all time. Personally recommended.

Equipment: Korg MS-10, Korg MS-20, Korg SQ-Sequencer, Korg Vocoder, Roland SH-01, Teac stereo tape deck.

Performed and recorded live in San Francisco, CA, USA 1982. Total running time, about 22 minutes.

"From an obscure tape release discovery, this 12" highlights the work of electronic music pioneer Joel Graham, a San Francisco based artist who self-released two cassettes in 1984/85. Originally recorded and performed live on pre-MIDI analog equipment in 1982 as an outline for a live p

"When David Greenberger first embarked on what has become a life-long journey, drummer Chris Corsano was not yet five years old! In 1979, after graduating from art school in Boston, Greenberger took the job of activities director at the Duplex Nursing Home, an all-male elder care facility in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts, and began collecting the stories, poems and music reviews of its aged patients for what became his Duplex Planet project, an undertaking that would eventually encompass nearly 200 issues...

Sonny Greenwich is a little known Canadian guitarist who is kind of a ‘Santana / Coltrane guitarist’ in the same way that Tisziji Muñoz is and with a somewhat similar furious but spiritually uplifting esthetic, except he emerged a decade earlier! This is his first album as a leader and also his hardest to source until

“A rather excellent album by Fripp and The Grid who have worked together frequently over the years. It begins as pure guitar drone, drifting into pleasant ambient, and by Leviathan the drums begin to appear in mix, approaching Fire Tower this has turned into blissful downtempo dub-techno, and so it continues to the end. Very much one long composition cut up into 9 parts, an album that deserves attention and to be listened to all the way through (just like good old progressive music, be it house or rock).”

Dominique Grimaud has long been involved in interesting, experimental rock in the French music scene (on Guigou Chenevier's solo albums, with Video Aventures and with the legendary, early 70's group Camizole!

"Harald Grosskopf was in his early twenties when LSD 'blew [his] reality away,' as he recalls. Born in Hildesheim in 1949, he had previously drummed in fairly conventional rock bands, most recently for Wallenstein. Their label-boss Rolf-Ulrich Kaiser was fond of facilitating jam sessions for musicians on his Ohr und Pilz label, often supplying his 'cosmic couriers' with LSD (unbeknown to them, on occasion). In one such session, the drug inspired something of an epiphany in Grosskopf: 'There I was playing...

"Harald Grosskopf played drums on the early Klaus Schulze albums and recorded thirteen albums with Ash Ra Tempel. His solo works, 1980's Synthesist and 1986's Oceanheart, are outstanding releases of the German electronic music scene.
Eberhard Kranemann studied music at the Dortmund Conservatory and art at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf. He co-founded the electronic bands Kraftwerk, NEU!, Pissoff, and released albums under the pseudonym Fritz Müller.

“At last reissued on LP (180 gram audiophile vinyl), it's the third and final studio album from Holland's ultimate psych legends GROUP 1850!
'Polyandri' was originally issued in 1974, when psychedelic rock had already lost its momentum. That unfortunate timing must be the only reason why this is a somewhat overlooked album, because the music itself is absolutely killer! On offer is a wild fusion of psychedelia, jazz-rock and progressive space rock, at many times dominated by band leader Peter...

Georges Grunblatt was an early member of Heldon, appearing on Allez Teia.
This rarity, which came out on French Polydor in 1980 and which has never-before been reissued in any format, is his only solo work, and is very much in the Heldon vein musically (in a kind of post-Allez Teia trippy vein) with lots of Heldon tie-ins. This appears to be a legit reissue as best as I can tell. Recorded at Ramses Studio in 1977, the engineers were Jean-Louis Rizet and Richard Pinhas.
And look at the credits.

“The official reissue of super-rare and fabled prog-rock/library/synth album L'Univers De La Mer by French composer Dominique Guiot.

"The fourth studio album from Rikard Sjöblom (Big Big Train, Beardfish) in his Gungfly guise.
Rikard comments, “Musically, what can I say? This is Prog, but I want to be free to move in whatever direction the music wants to go and I happily go exploring where it wants to take me. Even though there are a few softer songs and sections, most of the album turned out to be a rocker; a collection of hard rock songs with lots of tricky parts, some heavier moments and some downright jazzy elements too!”

An excellent sounding period recording from their 10/25/70 performance at the Essen Pop & Blues Festival. This is just after their great 1st album UFO was released, and captures them at an early, heady peak; imagine the furthest out that a power trio could've gone at this time and with the equipment available, and you have Guru Guru as heard here.
This is by the original trio: Ax Genrich, Mani Neumeier and Uli Trepte. Magnificent!

Even crazier second release of monster power trio, early 1970's style hard rock/progressive/psychedelic madness by Ax Genrich-guitar/vocals, Uli Trepte-bass/vocals & Mani Neumeier-drums/vocals. Like your favorite Cream record with it's brain destroyed...
