"Monster Melodies presents a collaboration with Moving Gelatine Plates with Moving Gelatine Plates. 45 years after the start of Moving Gelatine Plates, Monster M�lodies and the legendary band release an album of ALL unreleased tracks recorded between 1970 and 1978. Comes as a translucent pink jelly colored vinyl. Comes in a sleeve which opens up, containing a flyer with a family tree illustration of the different components of the band, a post card of a vintage promotional poster plus a 7" record which is..

"An mini LP of works by Denis Mpunga and Paul K., all recorded between 1980-1984. Combining elements of traditional African music with experimental electronics, the Belgian/Congolese duo released only a handful of tracks, scattered across a few rare LP and cassette compilations that were put out in the mid-eighties by obscure European labels. This release also includes a few previously unreleased songs that were found on the original master tapes. Relocating with his family from the Congo to Belgium in...

The first and best known release by this psychedelic quartet. Featuring the legendary Merrell Fankhauser (post-HMS Bounty) and Jeff Cotton (post-Beefheart's Magic Band). A definite classic of its kind.

“Their documentation of cosmic permeation and general aura of "unhingedness" has rarely been equalled within the recording medium, this stuff puts you right there on lip of the saucer.”

“Out of this world combination of jerky, Beefheartian quirks (courtesy of Jeff Cotton, of course) and...

A quintet of vocals, organ, guitar, bass & drums, who released this, their one & only album in 1970. This reissue includes 4 bonus tracks that were singles. While very vocally oriented there's lots of keyboard-led instrumental passages. The sound is similar - even if the music is different - to other early bands making the transition from "psychedelic rock " to "progressive rock", such as Procol Harum, Traffic, Spring, etc. If you enjoy that sound, you will definitely enjoy this little known album....

“Resiliente is a noisy album, infused with doses of free jazz, melodic fragments, blasts, drones and heavy saturated textures. Originally released in 2017 on Matik Matik discos, it is being released for the first time on vinyl in 2021 by Dur et Doux.....

Kjetil André Mulelid - piano
Bjørn Marius Hegge - double bass
Andreas Skår Winther - drums
"Following in the footsteps of In The Country and Espen Eriksen Trio, Kjetil Mulelid Trio is the third piano trio to appear on Rune Grammofon. Although they can be placed in the same musical landscape, it's also fair to say there are certain obvious differences. There's a solid dose of youthful playfulness and curiosity at work here, at the same time they show an assured maturity that belies their age..

“Eight new beguiling Kjetil Mulelid compositions expertly balancing energetic, often rhythmically complex and harmonically rich music with beautiful and evocative melodies. It's not all about Mulelid though, bassist Bjørn Marius Hegge (31) and drummer Andreas Skår Winther (28) effortlessly conjure additional layers, tones, and textures, incorporating a sense of calm; an unhurried yet constantly unfolding sound world which can be said to be distinctively Scandinavian, most typically heard in Hegge's sole...

"Second solo LP from Causa Sui guitar player and producer Jonas Munk. This is pattern music, characterized by slow builds and subtle, but refined transformations, where gradual tectonic shifts and tiny harmonic gestures generate vivid emotional...

“Minimum Resistance is Jonas Munk's most abstract and minimalist album to date, ten ambient pieces based on guitars -- often processed into soft, slow billows of sound. There's a rare aesthetic clarity in these pieces, allowing each sonic component to breathe and resonate. Here Munk works with a restrained sonic palette and it's an album which demands patience from the listener. Yet, in its bold simplicity, it carries enough emotional weight to be deeply rewarding. It's an immersive album, an invitation...

A great, Italian 'one-shot' bands who appeared, released one fine album, and then dissapeared into oblivion. Always a fan favorite.

"Their album 'Io Sono Murple' was really outstanding. it upholds the tradition of great integrated concept...

“Exact repro, originally released in 1978.
Featuring Frank Foster (soprano sax), Oliver Lake (alto sax), Jimmy Vass (alto sax), Youseff Yancy (trumpet, flugelhorn, theremin, various electro-acoustical sound manipulating devices), Don Pullen (piano), Monnette Sudler (guitar), Cecil McBee (bass), Hamiet Bluiett (baritone sax), Arthur Blythe (alto sax), Fred Hopkins (bass), Abdul Zahir Batin (flutes, whistles, percussion) and Sonny Brown (drums).”

“A reissue of Roberto Musci and Giovanni Venosta's A Noise, A Sound, originally released in 1992. The third episode of the alchemical association between Roberto Musci and Giovanni Venosta, reprinted for the first time. This work seems to be even more enigmatic than the previous ones. The "plunderphonics" style of the compositional process, significant to allowing a technical experimentalism of inexhaustible variety of materials used (compendium of sounds, harmonies, ethnic timbres) and the infinite...

"The first vinyl reissue of Roberto Musci's The Loa Of Music, originally released in 1984. The Loa Of Music is the debut recording project of Milanese composer and musician Roberto Musci, inspired by voodoo religion, Vever (the magical voodoo paintings), and Loas, the dark and magic spirits. The deep charm of non-western music led Musci to travel for many years across Africa, India, and Asia, studying rhythms, scales, performance, and interpretation of the most varied traditional and indigenous music...

Side A/B recorded in mono in London on 4 July 1969.
Side C/D recorded in stereo in London on 18 June 1970.

“This recording predates the Music Improvisation Company's only other release, the eponymous ECM outing, indicates a clear intention to stake out territory for European free improvisation markedly different from that of the (American) free jazz it sprang from. The African-American heritage that led to jazz was melodious, vocal, field holler/church-inflected, and the Germans and the...

"Depending on how you count, So Funny is either the ninth or tenth album, MX-80 Sound has released. Regardless, it's their first LP since the classic Crowd Control back in 1981, and it's a pretty goddamn amazing spin. The core of the band -- Bruce Anderson, Dale Sophiea and Rich Stim -- has been more or less stable for the better part of the last four decades, despite the fact they've never had any real commercial success. They've all pursued various different paths during that time, but they've also...

“If you see The Myrrors as the dust-caked disciples of a specific strain of desert-drone mysticism, theres little on Borderlands, their fourth full-length Myrrors album released in as many years, to dissuade you from that vision. Theres only confirmation an intoxicating combination of outlook and output that clarifies and crystallizes the bands many sonic strengths throughout the albums fantastically unfolding forty-plus minutes. From the beginning, with an appropriately Albert Ayler-ish blast of...

"If Mythic Sunship aren't the shape of psychedelic music to come, it's in no small part because there are so few out there who could hope to match what they do."-The Obelisk

“Mythic Sunship played three shows at the 2019 edition of Roadburn. Changing Shapes documents the most ferocious and courageous of the three.
It follows 2018's Another Shape Of Psychedelic Music. Changing Shapes is a continuation of those ideas, not just a live performance of previous material (only two tracks from...

“With their new album Wildfire, renowned Copenhagen-quintet Mythic Sunship begins a new chapter of the free-form rock journey that has seen them put out a critically acclaimed album annually for the last five years and made them one of Europe's most interesting new psychedelic bands.
Ripping apart the foundation that the previous albums were built upon, the group has reinvented itself to present an album showcasing the band at it's core and most primal form. Recorded over the course of four intense...
