This vinyl version of one of our great releases from earlier in the year was released only in Spain and we have only 8 copies to sell!

If creating an unmistakable group sound is the ultimate goal of a jazz ensemble, the Spanish trio Naima is well on its way to securing a spot as one of the leading combos on the contemporary European scene. Featuring Enrique Ruiz on piano and synths, Luis Torregrosa on drums, and Rafael Ramos Sania on double bass, the Valencia...

“Duo by two members from Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O.: Kawabata Makoto "Speed Guru" (electric guitar, synthesizer) and Satoshima Nani (drums, sampler).
Nani & Guru is a hyper-experimental, psychedelic astro-trance duo, spontaneously formed in February 2018 by guitarist Kawabata Makoto and drummer Satoshima Nani from Acid Mothers Temple. Their first album, Vovivizm, was recorded immediately and released on CD by the Acid Mothers Temple in March 2018 in a limited edition of 300...

“Jonny Nash's Make A Wilderness was created over the course of 2017-2018 and is heavily influenced by descriptions of landscape and environment in the work of authors Shusaku Endo, J.G. Ballard, and Cormac McCarthy. Fragments from a land that is a largely silent place. An ancient place. A non-place. A wilderness.”

“Rich in musical associations yet utterly singular in its voice, joyous with an inner tranquility, the music of Natural Information Society is unlike any other being made today. Their sixth album in eleven years for eremite records, descension (Out of Our Constrictions) is the first to be recorded live, featuring a set from London's Cafe OTO with veteran English free-improv great Evan Parker, & the first to feature just one extended composition. The 75-minute performance, inspired by the galvanizing...

Legit, master tape vinyl reissue of a great early, Germany jazz/rock title by a fine musician who is probably best known for his support of jazz via educational works and as head of Germany's NDR Radio jazz department!
This 1970 release on MPS has long been unavailable and has a wonderful groove and vibe and is a basically unknown minor classic of 'kozmigroov'.

"A major work of electronic avant-garde -- high quality deep esoterica of the weird and spooky kind."-Alan Freeman

Lost-in-time kosmische/kraut/avant-garde artifact produced by Toby Robinson, aka The Mad Twiddler, circa 1975 for his private Pyramid label. Tolkien-inspired dark ambient soundscapes with spooky/ritualistic atmosphere, treated percussions, gongs and guitars, trippy Hammond and Mini-Moog, tape loops, weird noises, and drones...

"Nazoranai is the supergroup of Keiji Haino, Oren Ambarchi and Stephen O'Malley. For close to four decades, Haino has been a legendary figure in Japan's avant-garde community through his commanding presence in the band Fushitsusha and numerous solo ventures. Ambarchi, a prolific electro-acoustic composer of heavy ambience and hypno-rock, has long stood at the leading edge of Australia's experimental music scene, while O'Malley remains a principle architect for the drone/doom metal project Sunn O))) in...

Hugh Hopper - bass
Robert Jarvis - trombone
Paul Maassen - synths & piano
Kim Weemhoff - drums
Niels Brouwer - guitar
Henk de Laat - double bass (on 'The City')

This is quite a treat to see come out 15 years after the band originally ended! This is a professional sounding live recording of what both Frank and Hugh remembered as being one of the band’s best gigs! Plus Ravel, which is quietly impressive (ju

"The second album by Necromonkey, featuring drummer Mattias Olsson (ex-Anglagard) and keyboardist David Lundberg (known from his work with Gösta Berlings Saga).
Elements of techno, space, avant, alt-rock and symphonic and lounge jazz have been blended together, along with a unique perspective that only these musicians can bring to the table. The album brings forth different moods and styles in a seamless, almost hypnotic fashion. Continuously engaging the listener with subtle tensions is the key...

This is the fourth album by this very excellent, very interesting, songs-with-vocals format, electric jazz/rock band, which means they come out somewhere between Caravan or Wigwam in the song department and Tony Williams Lifetime/Mahavishnu Orchestra/Elephant9 in the jazz/rock department! Interestingly enought, the bassist is from Elephant9.
By now, they've moved beyond doing something different in bringing these two strands of styles (songs + electic jazz) together, to have a strong and distinctive..

This is the first release by this Norwegian band. Unlike their second album, Outside The Screen, which features vocals, this is an all instrumental trio record which features:
Bjorn Kakegg-electric & acoustic guitars, vocals
Nikoai Haengsle Eilertsen-bass
Thomas Stronen-drums

The bassist is from Elephant9 and the drummer is from the Rune Grammofon bands Humcrush and Food.

This is a very good electric jazz album, but, honestly (and somewhat surprisingly for folks who know how...

This is the fifth album by Norway’s Needlepoint, who operate very much in the song arena of progressive rock. You can compare them to Caravan as another band who played progressive rock strongly centered on SONGS, but they don’t really sound like Caravan, just like Junipher Greene "Friendship" and Wigwam "Fairyport", two albums that (perhaps rightly) get compared to Caravan, don’t really sound like Caravan...
Like Sanguine Hum, another contemporary, SONG-centered progressive rock band, they are...

A 1974 live album by this this English group who spent their most popular years in Germany, and are usually thought of as a German band.
"Special limited edition colored vinyl reissue - 500 purple, 500 clear - of the 1973 concert performance by psychedelic space rock pioneers, Nektar, recorded at the legendary Roundhouse in London!
This classic album comes in a deluxe gatefold sleeve with metallic silver paper and is sequentially numbered for collectors!"-Press Release

“Nemescu was born in Pascani, Romania in 1940. He studied composition with Mihail Jora at University of Music in Bucharest. While still a student, he imposed himself as part of avant-garde movement in Romanian music composition. After 1965 he produced works of the "open creation" type, a blending of conceptual and environmental music. He involved himself after 1967 in the Romanian spectral trend. Starting with the work Concentric (1969), his creation received archetypal vocation by cultivating an...

Two musicians from the glory days of Tangerine Dream meet up and capture some of the old magic, but not in a retro way.

“Neuland started the way many long overdue projects do: with Paul Haslinger and Peter Baumann asking themselves, "Why isn't there anything out there like this?" In their case, that meant a deeply immersive debut album that's respectful of their roots in Tangerine Dream but exists on it's own astral plane.
Far more restless than most ambient records, the pair's self-titled...

One of the greatest of the early 60s free jazz bands. By my count, they made 3 ½ albums; here’s a pretty decent live recording that I never came across before to add to their much too small legacy.

“The New York Contemporary Five barely lasted a year. They were a super-group after the fact -- the stellar frontline of Don Cherry, Archie Shepp, and John Tchicai all being relative newcomers at the time. Cherry had recently left Ornette Coleman and was only starting to stretch into world music...

"Seattle experimentalists Newaxeyes play with tension and contradictions. Merging dark electronics, crystalline guitar melodies, pummeling beats, and samples to refract the volatility, paranoia, and catharsis of the post-Information Age, the band spins carefully orchestrated and recklessly warped instrumentals into something entirely their own. Their debut album, Black Fax, recorded live to tape over the course of two days and produced by Randall Dunn (Sunn O))), Earth, Wolves In The Throne Room), is a...

First-ever vinyl issue of a classic late 80s classy-pop release!

"Martin Newell spent the '80s being compared to Robyn Hitchcock, XTC, and other lesser-known '60s-influenced pop maestros, so it was poetic that XTC's Andy Partridge would produce this Newell solo album. The result isn't a stretch from Martin's days as The Cleaners from Venus or The Brotherhood of Lizards. The production is cleaner than on Newell's home recordings, but the songs are as melodic and adventurous as ever. If one's...

“Dark and majestic, News from Babel remains ahead of their time.”-Michael Draine

“The second record by this group (Lindsay Cooper, Zeena Parkins and Chris Cutler) with invitees Robert Wyatt, Sally Potter, Phil Minton and Dagmar Krause who sing, and Bill Gilonis (of The Work) who plays occasional guitar and bass, and who also produced the recording.
These are extended songs, unusually orchestrated and arranged and not much like anything else recorded before or since.”-Chris Cutler...

First new one in half a decade from this Argentinian prog quartet who had their greatest exposure in the US when they played (very well) at NEARFest.
Keyboarded Lalo Huber and guitarist Carlos Lucena are the main focus of the album here, with what is a mostly instrumental work.

"If you like ELP influenced prog served up to you hot and heavy there is an hours worth of intense pleasure here. Highly recommended."-Ken Golden

“Composer, filmmaker and photographer Phill Niblock is a true pillar of the New York avant-garde. In the past 50 years, he has curated over 1,000 performances at his Centre Street loft and steadfastly built a massive, multidisciplinary body of work. While his earliest musical compositions date back to 1968, Niblock waited until the early ’80s to release any recordings. Nothin To Look At Just A Record, a powerful debut with densely layered trombones, would be the first to unfurl his unique approach to...

This archival release features him at his prog/fusion height, and backed by SBB!

“The acclaimed Polish prog musician, recorded live in Helsinki in 1973. This release includes bonus tracks that were recorded in Munich the previous year.”

“'Strange Is This World' was the first English-language album by Polish rock artist Niemen.
With a backing band including the members of SBB, 'Strange Is This World' is a wild trip through spacey, psychedelic territory. Niemen's vocal performance reminds of psychedelic greats like Arthur Brown.
The end result is a fascinating and original collaboration between some of the great names of Polish '70s prog which will be of interest to all fans of the trippier end of the genre. Originally released..

This is wonderful to see; for 10 years (1980-1991), The Nightcrawlers, based out of Philadelphia, were one of the greatest electronic / cosmic / spacemusic ensembles of their time, giving a unique slant to their work, but obviously also inspired by the greats of the genre like Tangerine Dream and Klaus Schulze.
You night consider them the Radio Massacre International of their time in terms of a large number of recordings and also high quality output. In addition to the 3 vinyl albums they released...

Reissue from the master tapes of this truly 'out music' classic, released in a limited edition of 500 copies!

"One of very few indie label releases on Spin Magazine's list of 100 top counter-cultural music, ahead of legends like Mulatu Astatke, Brigitte Fontaine, Pärson Sound, Ornette Coleman, Sun Ra and His Solar Arkestra, Harry Partch, and Os Mutantes. Zowie!"

"Originally released on CD in 1998. Among the most stunning and musical electronic works ever produced, these five compositions represent the complete electronic works of Norwegian composer Arne Nordheim (1931-2010). They have stood the test of time remarkably well and have been embraced by new generations of influential musicians. This audiophile double LP comes in a beautiful gatefold sleeve with updated credits and liner notes. The sound has been mastered by Helge Sten (Deathprod) specifically for....

“The reissue of impossible-to-find cult album Lady Maid by Japanese outfit Normal Brain. Originally released in 1981 as a limited vinyl pressing of 300 copies on Agi Yuzuru's fabled experimental label Vanity Records (R.N.A. Organism, Dada, Sympathy Nervous, Tolerance), Lady Maid is a testament to the creativity of the early '80s Japanese electronic and experimental scene, encapsulating a prolific era when audio gear became affordable for musicians to explore sounds in the comfort of their home, free...

This is a hand-numbered edition of 500 copies. The sleeve has a lovely, hand-constructed gimmix foldout cover and bonus CD which includes the entire program.

“This concert is a beautiful event, for me. These musicians seem to me to have have really grasped what my songs are about; but at the same time, created an entirely fresh way of putting the music together. I feel so honored and so grateful.”-Robert Wyatt, March 2019

“Futuro is Not Waving's sublime synth/ambient soundtrack to one of the world's most intense art/theatre experiences: Sean Rogg's radical immersive artwork The Waldorf Project -- fusing choreography, spatial design, music, and performance into a cohesive experience. Drawn from more than 20 hours of material made for the project between 2013-2018, Futuro finds Alessio Natalizia exploring a style of tonal and spatial minimalism that works as a fine palette cleanser from much of what you've heard from him...

Although this came out of a completely different scene and country, this release has a lot of resemblance, imo, to the classic Zazou / Bikaye CY1 release ‘Noir et Blanc’!

“Areissue of Notorische Reflexe's self-titled release, originally released in 1985 on Rebel Records.
Mark Reeder on Notorische Reflexe: "I honestly can't remember the first time I saw Notorische Reflexe perform, but I imagine it was probably at some mad avant-garde experimental event in SO36 or Tempodrom, or somewhere...

"A symphonic rock band from Rovaniemi, formed in 1974. Their main influences were Yes, Pink Floyd, Procol Harum and Wigwam. Atlantis (1976) contained only four tracks, fronted by Antti Ortamo's organ and vocals...[with] strong melodic elements...

“The Chilean/French duo Nova Materia are known for their hypnotic music which incorporates eerie sounds generated by raw and mineral materials (metal, rocks etc) to create tracks that are in turn hyper-rhythmic and dreamy, poised between postpunk rock and electronic dance music. Caroline Chaspoul and Eduardo Henriquez have also been very active in the field of multimedia & performance arts, and Xpujil explores that other dimension of their talent.
Released on Crammed's revered MADE TO MEASURE series..

"Reissue of an exceptional album of improvisations, recorded when percussionist Charles K. Noyes was lured to the Bay Area in the summer of 1979 by Henry Kaiser.
Noyes and Maercks had played regularly as a duo when Owen was still based in Worcester, MA. But he'd shifted his ass westward in the wake of the Teenage Sex Therapist session, which had been organized by Kaiser following their collaborations in the band, Monster Island.
Half of the album was recorded live at Woody Woodman's Finger...

“A dazzling display of 12-string melodicism, Arc Minutes is the second full-length LP from once New Englander, now Tokyo-based, instrumentalist Rob Noyes. If one had to pin an influence from the holy trinity, rather than the existential drift of Fahey or the raga-tinged interpretations of Robbie Basho, Noyes excels at Leo Kottke-style dynamics playing huge, bright runs within compact arrangements that explode with exuberance. Since his debut, Noyes has matured with an intense focus and here delivers a...
