Amund Storløkken Åse – vibraphone
Nicolas Leirtrø - baritone guitar
Øyvind Leite – drums

“Taking their name from a Thelonious Monk quote, I Like To Sleep are three young Norwegian musicians, all 22 years old. Nicolas Leirtrø and Øyvind Leite first met in high school in Trondheim before they joined up with Amund in a youth big band.
It soon became apparent that they shared the same musical background centered around '70s progressive rock, classical music, jazz, and improvisation...

“Susie Ibarra is one of the most significant female percussionists and composers of our time, known for her work as a performer within contemporary, avant-garde, jazz, classical, and world music, having worked with the likes of John Zorn, Yo La Tengo, Mamadou Kelly, Marc Ribot, and many more. Perception, self-released in December 2017 and now being distributed through Thrill Jockey, is a beautiful piece of art, layering sound and centered around the way one perceives the world around them, and how this...

"The eponymous third and last album by the Genoese band, closes a short-lived but exciting artistic journey which leads some of the original New Trolls musicians, Nico Di Palo in particular, towards paths parallel to the ones of their previous group....

This is a beautiful, numbered, limited edition of 889 copies of this classic, which is Volume 8 of the Prog Rock Italia series - mastered from the original tapes on 180 gram vinyl in a beautiful sleeve.

"The eponymous, last album by the Genoese band, closes a short-lived but exciting artistic journey which leads some of the original New Trolls musicians, Nico Di Palo in particular, towards paths parallel to the ones of their previous group.

Armando Battiston – Fender Rhodes, Hammond C3 organ, keyboards
Andrea Centazzo – drums, percussion, electronics, vocals
Franco Feruglio – double bass and electric bass
This is a very rare and very good somewhat avant-leaning jazz/rock album from 1974, that was originally released on the PDU label.
Comparable to Et Cetera, Soft Machine, Travelling, Arkham, etc.

This was the group's fourth (and best for 'Krautrock' fans) album, as it "contained their most experimental works."-Crack In The Cosmic Egg

"1969 formed, IHRE KINDER decided to connect songs in German lyrics with rock music. Given the lack of acceptance among record labels - rock music at that time was exclusively reserved English singing bands - they produced their first LP IHRE KINDER 1969 themselves (supported by Jonas Porst). In 1969 the band signed with the newly established Munich record....

Wolf Dieter Strunz (organ, piano), Jochen Petersen (guitars, alto/tenor saxes, flute, clarinet, vocals), Manfred Schulz (guitar, vocals), Wolfgang Kracht (bass, vocals), Lorenz Kohler (vocals), Bernd Schroder (drums, percussion).

One and done German underground rock band from early 1971, with some jazz/rock band overtones & wonderful electric saxes that will make you smile if you love David Jackson in early VDGG, especially when the Hammond organ kicks in!

It was originally released on...

"Manchester-based Factory Records set up a US office in the early '80s.
In typical Factory styles, they allocated catalogue number FACT A to a 1981 gig with New Order and Ike Yard in NYC.
FACT A SECOND would be Factory America's debut release, Ike Yard's self-titled LP."

“Ike Yard remain a legendary band of early '80s New York City - at once immensely influential, yet obscured by a far-too-brief initial phase. Their debut EP, the dark and absorbing Night After Night, sounds almost like a

"In 1980, Ilitch mastermind Thierry M�ller released his second LP, 10 Suicides, on the French imprint S.C.O.P.A. Unlike his debut Periodikmindtrouble (also available from Superior Viaduct), which featured intricately layered instrumentals, 10 Suicides explores a more art-damaged pop sensibility. While distorted guitars and atmospheric synth workouts remain a part of M�ller's signature sound, several songs credit the mysterious Ruth Ellyeri, who was not an actual person, but rather M�ller's female...

"In the mid-1970s, Parisian composer and multi-instrumentalist Thierry M�ller began operating primarily under the Ilitch moniker. Juxtaposing dark, electronic soundscapes and solo guitar improvisations, Ilitch created some of the most enduring music of the era. It comes as no surprise that Nurse With Wound included M�ller on their famed list of influential avant-garde artists.

Originally released on Oxygene Records in 1978, Ilitch's debut Periodikmindtrouble was a shot across the bow for the...

Taylor Ho Bynum: cornet, flugelhorn
Mary Halvorson: guitar

Vinyl-only second release by this great quartet!

“This is unique music made with great artistry that encourages us to imagine new things along with its creators.”

"In February of 2009, Jim Valice of Index discovered three reels in a cardboard box stuffed in a closet of his parents home in Michigan. These songs from 1969 were on those reels. Fourteen original compositions by Index, seven making their vinyl debut, the other seven released for the first time ever, all transferred from the original tapes! Index was once again a pure power trio by 1969. There was massive demand for Index personal performances. Index was not interested. It was becoming more difficult...

“The much-anticipated official reissue of Japanese duo Inoyamaland's quintessential ambient/environmental/electronic album Danzindan-Pojidon, produced by Haruomi Hosono and originally released in 1983 on his Yen Records label. Available outside of Japan for the first time, the new age classic comes as a limited LP with liner notes by band member Makoto Inoue. With Danzindan-Pojidon, Yasushi Yamashita and Makoto Inoue created what they describe as "a special place where the kingdom of summer vacation...

This set, which includes THREE ALBUMS of previously unheard live recordings from 1967-1969 by the band that grew out of Pärson Sound and turned into Trad, Gras Och Stenar and perfectly exemplified the mind meeting of Terry Riley with The Velvet Underground, is just a great as you would hope. Recommended.

"English neo-progressive rock spear-header IQ has been furthering the genre in the 21th century with much acclaim. Sound-wise the band hasn't changed much since ' The Seventh House', but on this album the band has finally revolutionized their composition style, arrangements and production. The symphonic layering by Neil Durant has this adult feel, reminding me of 'Tilt' era Scott Walker or 'Blackstar' era Bowie ' yet drenched in a Bladerunner like delicate sci-fi universe. Somehow this album sounds...

"Filipino-American Jon Irabagon has topped both the Rising Star Alto Saxophone and the Rising Star Tenor Saxophone categories in Down Beat's critics polls and been named one of Time Out New York's 25 New York City Jazz Icons. A founding member of Mostly Other People Do The Killing, he is also an integral member of the Mary Halvorson Quintet, Dave Douglas Quintet, and Barry Altschul's 3Dom Factor. John Hegre is a musician, songwriter, sound engineer, and a pioneer of the Norwegian noise music scene. He...

"Sixteen pulverizingly heavy early masterpieces of dirty doom metal, this is a can't miss package for all fans of heavy psych, proto-metal and the early days of doom rock." - The Ripple Effect

"This Scottish band are just ridiculously heavy and I think it's a travesty that the sixteen songs they wrote around 1970/1971 never got an official release until 2009. This whole album is just breathtaking." – Terrorizer

“Once a year I drink beer and listen to this record at top volume. Tonight is .

Camae Ayewa - voice, synth
Keir Neuringer - saxophone, synth, percussion
Aquiles Navarro - trumpet, synth
Luke Stewart - double bass, bass guitar
Tcheser Holmes - drums, percussion

Second great release from this incredible band who are very thought-provoking and very groove-laden, while also being very OUT! They are all fantastic players, and, having seen them twice, I can also say that they are AMAZING live and Camae is a great spoken word artist. Recommended...

The second release from the Austrian Digatone label who previously released the splendid, now completely sold out, Klockwerk Orange set. Now they return with a second release, also drawn from an Austrian progressive rock outfit.

"Ishikawa Akira & Count Buffalo's Uganda: Afurikan Rokku no Yoake originally saw the light of day on February 5th, 1972 on Toshiba Records as part of their '4 Channel Q.M. Sound' series but quickly sank into the depths obscurity, making that only a handful of copies were actually sold while the remaining stock was withdrawn due to very depressing sales and eventually melted down and destroyed. The disc remained a well kept secret for all these years and only a small circle of die-hard music lovers have...

“Official reissue that includes a DVD copy of the film that was shown at live performances of Isolation in 1973.
One of England’s rarest privately pressed progressive LPs, isolation is barely known and generally misunderstood. It’s a concept lp tackling the sense of loneliness and loss after the breakup of a relationship and was performed with an accompanying experimental film that has miraculously survived. The film is 18 minutes long in glorious black and white, the use of shadow is very akin to...

"Itiberê Zwarg Orquestra Família make universal music. This family has fallen from the sky. Their music is excellent, a treasure chest full of harmonic, rhythmic and melodic jewels. The name Itiberê Zwarg Orquestra Família exists because they are a family, united by music and the father they share in Itiberê. His children of sound play better than adults. This was exactly the time for a sound like this to appear. I, Hermeto Pascoal, do not mess around, music is my religion. That's why I say this....
