"Alga Marghen presents the new edition of Eliane Radigue's "Jouet Electronique" (1967) for feedback on magnetic tape and "Elemental I" (1968) for feedback of natural sounds on magnetic tape. This LP was first issued in 2010, and it's now presented for the first time with its own specific artwork and layout. Both works were recorded at Pierre Henry's Studio Apsome in Paris. Between 1967 and 1968, Radigue was Henry's assistant, mainly for the editing of L'Apocalypse de Jean (1969). Henry also put her in...

A heavy progressive/hard rock band from Sweden who I had never heard of before hearing this reissue of their sole album. Think Uriah Heep and Deep Purple. Vocals (vocalist also plays flute), dual guitars, keyboards, bass and drums.

"One of the most requested Heavy Rock albums in our shop. Complex arrangements with tons of Hammond organ and twin guitars. Flute and perfect vocals by Jonas Warnebring. The original lp changes hands for hundreds of dollars so take the chance and get this treasure...

"A reissue of Rain's self-titled album, originally released in 1972 on the Project 3 label (home also of The Free Design). Rain's self-titled album is a cult item among lovers of progressive pop, psych, and proto power-pop. Fantastic songs, superb musicianship, dreamy vocals, hard guitar, and Hammond -- Echoes of late '60s Beatles, Colin Blunstone, Zombies, Caravan, Argent, and Parlour Band. Includes the bonus track "Springtime"; Includes an insert with liner notes by band member...

"This just might be the single greatest side of OTT psych/noise guitar oblivion ever put to disc from the most legendary Japanese underground group of all time, Les Rallizes Denudes: the mysteriously-named France Demo Tapes have previously only circulated on wildly dubious CD-R burns, often with contradictory and conflicting track listings/material but the session (whether it was actually recorded in France or not) is consistently dated as being from some time in the late '80s. This gloriously out-of...

Caveat: These copies all have the beginnings of a top seam split. It isn't terrible, but it's there.

"Crepuscular Hour is an epic, hypnotic one-hour piece for three choirs, three pairs of noise musicians, and church organ, to be performed in a cathedral or similar location with musicians surrounding the audience. The room fills with sound in an intense, but almost meditative hour, as the voices blend with the distortion, the noise sometimes takes over, and the organ eventually takes the music to a new level. The visual design of this concert is a play on the crepuscular rays -- rays of sunlight that...

“George Phelps who had joined The Carnations met up with Goliath members in a studio and through a myriad of circumstances, teaming up with drummer Robert Wolff (ex "Micah") these musicians merged into Raven in Louisville KY in late 1972 (even though they were all fro Terra Haute, Indiana). From this moment on, the band toured extensively through 24 states non-stop for the next four years before recording this material in 1976, which remained unreleased until today. Soon after the recording was completed...

"Limited red vinyl LP pressing including digital download. Archive release from the veteran synthesist of Pere Ubu. Terminal Drive is studio recording of a mythical piece of electro-acoustic music composed and performed in 1975 by Allen Ravenstine with assistance from Albert Dennis on string bass.
Terminal Drive's significance in terms of Cleveland underground music cannot be understated and has been cited as partially responsible for Ravenstine's invitation to co-form the musical unit Pere Ubu in...

“Paradigm Discs present a reissue of Amnon Raviv's Mirror, originally released in Israel in 1983 and only available in a handmade edition of just 50 copies. As such, this edition is the first widely available issue of this LP, giving it a chance to reach an audience beyond the 50 hardened collectors who got to hear this strange experimental record back in the '80s.
There's nothing else quite like it from that era, let alone from Israel, although it does have some parallels with earlier avant-garde...

"...a radical, inventive avant rock band with some improvised jazz elements, as well as a heavy dose of Zappa-esque humor... the lengthy closing track... has a freaked-out intensity that belies the silliness of the earlier tracks, and really ties the...

"Ultra-rare recordings by '70s UK avant-rockers Red Square, the missing link between original free-noise practitioners like AMM, Nihilist Spasm Band, and Peter Brotzmann and post-no wavers � la The Blue Humans, Borbetomagus, Fushitsusha, and The Dead C. Named after the early Soviet Constructivists, Red Square is a pioneering free-improvising, avant-rock band. They bridged the worlds of psychedelic rock, noise, and avant-jazz, and many of the techniques and approaches to music that they helped to pioneer...

A very high quality pressing presented in a beautiful, mesmeric gatefold jacket with a download card in a very limited edition.

Alec K. Redfearn – electrified accordion, vocal, Realistic MG-1, loops, ceremonial bell, combo organ

“Conceptually derived from the work of Japanese minimalist composer Satoshi Ashikawa, I have composed an album which hopes to engage, enrich and reflect the listener's surroundings, an Environmental Music"-Gareth Quinn Redmond.

“Working with Still Way as a base for inspiration, Gareth Quinn Redmond takes Ashikawa's meditative sound designs to more dramatic and lyrical landscapes, gracefully instilling his personal touch into the master's melodic patterns and presenting six pieces which blend and..

"The fire and fury of '60s free jazz and the tumult of electronic rock tinged experimental music is on full display on this new powerhouse offering from four cutting edge Oslo based musicians collectively known as Reflection in Cosmo.
With Kjetil Moster on saxes, Hans Magnus Ryan on guitar, Stale Storlokken on keyboards and Thomas Stronen on drums, these four kindred spirits strike a tumultuous accord on their self titled debut on RareNoise Records, which represents Moster's followup...

Surprisingly great sounding, early recording by Steve Reich and his ensemble, performing nearly 50 years ago (!); a set of his earliest post tape-work period when he had developed his 'minimal style', but he was still doing his tape works as well. Hugely recommended to fans.

"A live performance of four early works by Steve Reich: "Four Organs," "My Name Is," "Piano Phase," and "Phase Patterns." This 1970 performance marked an important moment in San Francisco Bay Area new music history with the...

The release of this set is quite amazing; I am a huge fan of 70s Steve Reich releases and I didn't even know that this private label release existed, until I saw the pre-release information about it! And it's taken from the master tapes and licensed from Steve himself! Conditionally HUGELY recommended!

"Steve Reich’s Drumming is regarded as one of the most important musical works of the last century. Distilled through his studies of African percussion in Ghana during 1970 and Balinese gamelan....

"Reissue of a seminal Shandar lp of early Reich music, recorded at two concerts in 1970. Both pieces are for four organs, & you can hear the early elements of his non tape-music here. Includes Phillip Glass as a member of the ensemble!"

"'Four Organs' is the ultimate minimalist composition. Performed by Reich, Glass, Art Murphy and Steve Chambers, four identical Farfisa organs strike a single chord and gradually lengthen each note to produce polyrhythms between the players. Anchored by Jon...

The recordings of Four Organs and Music In Similar Motion are NOT the versions on the Shandar albums!

“Information, Transmission, Modulation And Noise is a set of recordings featuring works by Steve Reich and Philip Glass.
During an interview recorded at the KPFA radio station, Steve Reich and Jon Gibson introduced an east coast performance of Steve Reich's masterpiece, Four Organs, as well as an exciting recording of Ghanian drumming which the artist recorded in Ghana. They also introduced..

�After the widely noticed performance at the "Acht Br�cken Festival 2016" at Cologne's Philharmonic Hall, Gregor Schwellenbach, Hauschka, Erol Sarp (of Grandbrothers), Daniel Brandt and Paul Frick (both of Brandt Brauer Frick) and John Kameel Farah release their interpretation of Steve Reich's "Six Pianos" as a studio recording.
The re-recording of this piece is an interpretation of Reich's composition but still far more than just that - it is a modern approach to his idea behind it. The basic idea...

Edition of 300.
"Recently we touched base with the New Zealand ex-pat guitarist Dean Roberts. He's living in Berlin these days, teaching, playing and staying out late. When asked if there were any interesting, unheralded players we should know about he immediately mentioned Julia Reidy. Julia is also a guitarist currently based in Berlin, but the city from which she's apart is Sydney, NSW. While there she was embroiled in the Australian improv scene, and played with the likes of Jon Rose et al. She...

Unusual electronic stylings, obviously at least partially inspired by the Berlin school of Kosmiche-ness. Conditionally recommended.

Very groovy, archival release of the early Renaissance (Keith and Jane Relf-era), live at the Fillmore in 1970. For a 45 year old unreleased tape, the sound is more than fine and this is essential for the fans of this short-lived band.

"Live archival release. After returning from the final Yardbirds USA tour in the late 60's singer Keith Relf and drummer Jim McCarty formed Renaissance with Keith's sister Jane Relf and played numerous gigs in UK and Sweden before embarking on a USA tour in the...

“A biomedical scientist and an architect form a band in the early '70s with nothing by the way of traditional musical talent or skill but with endless enthusiasm and their own unique musical sensibility. The ensuing career and creative output of this ongoing home studio/bedroom band remains one of the most significant song based 'outre' catalogs ever produced in the United Kingdom.
This comprehensive two LP set contains their first official LP (originally released on The Residents' legendary Ralph...

"An evening in a coffee house in Kyoto forty years ago has lingered fondly in the memories of those who were there. Now, the stellar performance of JOHN RENBOURN that night is available for all to hear on Live in Kyoto 1978. John Renbourn, along with his sometimes partner Bert Jansch (with whom he formed PENTANGLE in the 1960s), has been passed away for these past few years—but the music that he made continues to inspire, alongside the works of fellow travelers like Jansch, Davey Graham, Wizz Jones and...

"On an unassuming cassette, just labelled Robert Rental in green Dymo tape, these demos have lain unheard for years amongst his family's treasured possessions, cared-for artefacts of a life cut short far too soon. These songs, which Robert recorded in his council flat in Battersea in 1980, provide an enticing glimpse into his all-too-infrequent solo work. On most occasions, Robert worked with Thomas Leer, Daniel Miller, or other collaborators. These are rough recordings, tape hiss still in evidence, but...

The first-ever reissue, taken from the master tapes, of this mega-rarity which came out on the Epic label in Sweden in 1973. Now, 40 years later, it's available for everyone to hear, but only for a little while: there were only 500 of this exact...

"Originally released as a 12" single in 1980 based on "The Eskimo", this collectors edition includes 3 bonus tracks. Pressed on translucent yellow vinyl. New 12" 45 RPM EP reissue. All sounds heard on Goosebump were originated on toy instruments which were provided by Toys-R-Us, Inc. - Drawing of The Residents by Jad Fair of Half Japanese"

Originally released as a 7" EP in 1977, which somehow managed to make their extremely radical sound somehow palatable to the new-wave masses, while not giving an inch in terms of creativity and weirdness, this found a huge following and sales success...

“To celebrate the 40th anniversary of 'Eskimo' The Residents present a unique collection of the album's constituent parts, and encourage their public to remix and rework the album.
Including over seventy individual musical elements, chants, loops and sound effects recorded on location by the group in the mid-late 1970s, plus a backing CD of Arctic wind noise, this remarkable set provides unprecedented insight into the three years' recording and construction of a legendary album, and an opportunity...

One of the group's early, quite brilliant and inventive early classics. Highly recommended if you don't already have this! And now with an extra 7 minutes.

Recorded in 1974, originally released in 1979 and now reissued with seven minutes of...

"This piece was performed live one time, at a Snakefinger wake in San Francisco. The studio version was originally released as a fan club only, limited edition CD. This LP includes both the studio version AND the live version. This is a limited edition of only 300 copies on Cyan Blue vinyl."

"The Residents met Philip Lithman in 1969. They became immediate friends and began playing music together. Snakefinger participated in many Residents projects with 1986 being a particularly good year for their...

"Following their long tradition of projects based on narrative themes, The Residents are pleased to announce the release of The Ghost of Hope, an historically accurate album based on train wrecks. Pursuing this theme in both a literal and metaphorical sense, the group discovered a series of vintage news articles highlighting the dangers of train travel in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Inspired by the era's elegant language, the group then contrasted that eloquence against the sheer horror of...

“A reissue of Jeff Resnick's SAC ("School Of American Craftsman"), originally released in 1978. Organically funky, laced with avant-garde synth textures, and studded with breakbeats, the second release on Outernational Sounds is Jeff Resnick's unique, ultra-rare, 1978 promotional recording for the School for American Craftsmen, at the Rochester Institute of Technology. Five tracks of soul jazz and modal fusion -- re-modeling Trane, and opening with a variation of "Norwegian Wood" -- by a local group....

Kris Davis piano / Eric Revis double bass / Gerald Cleaver drums.

"The Eric Revis Trio is back, this time with Gerald Cleaver using sticks against skins and metal, replacing his elders Andrew Cyrille from "City of Asylum" - Cecil Taylor�s drummer of choice for a decade - and John Betsch from the project's recent European tour - Steve Lacy�s partner for the same period of time. The brilliant newcomer Kris Davis remains at the piano. Although the music is different, the principles, objectives and...

"Occultation present a reissue of Revolutionary Army Of The Infant Jesus's second album Mirror, originally released in 1991. Mirror was originally a CD-only release on Probe Plus. Mirror is possibly RAIJ's most diverse and eclectic collection. In addition to their signature blend of ethereal beauty and stark brutalism, the album burrows deep into the European psyche with multiple musical, literary, and spiritual allusions. The samples and field recordings on the album include dialogue from classic...

“An early-70's French entry with strong Magma links.It all started in late-60's, when keyboardist Jean-Pol Asseline and drummer Thierry Blanchard played with bassist Gerard Prévost, future member of Zao, and participated in several Jazz-linked concerts, before deciding to form a regular band. Asseline and Blanchard were joined by organist Alain Monier, bassist Serge Lenoir and sax player Alain Hatot, forming Guige. They were rehearsing at Monier's family basement and were discovered by CBS, signing a...

"The first authoritative compilation of American dream pop artist Happy Rhodes, whose singular songwriting and four-octave vocal range emanated from the pastoral confines of upstate New York in the 1980s. Her melding of classical music influences with synthesizer and acoustic guitar, and her enchanting and idiosyncratic singing, are favorably compared to heralded English chanteuse Kate Bush. Fans of such artistic pop music would be remiss to overlook Rhodes's similarly remarkable and otherworldly sonic...

This is a hand-numbered, limited edition of 300 copies of a release that was previously released on CD by AltrOck.

This relatively young band from Normandy, France, makes their debut on disc here, with a record that has six tracks; three from new recordings by the current line-up of the group (drums/lead vocals, bass/vocals, guitar/vocals, alto & baritone sax/alto clarinet/flute/vocals, soprano sax/bassoon/vocals plus guests on percussion, lead vocals, flute, oboe, clarinet & horn) as well as....

“Special 50th anniversary reissue of Pau Riba's first album in its intended double-LP format in gatefold sleeve with 12-page booklet featuring lyrics in Catalan and Spanish.
Released as two separate records in 1969 and 1970, Riba was just 20-21 years old when he created this expansive and outstanding work of psychedelic folk-rock accompanied by the band Om and members of Música Dispersa.
The beginning of the unique career of this essential figure of Catalan music and counterculture, this is...

“The reissue of the long out of print -- and never before officially issued in the US -- trilogy of albums by Catherine Ribeiro + Alpes, 1970's N°2, 1971's Âme Debout, and 1972's Paix.
The presentation of these foundational LPs, arguably the group's finest hours on wax, fills in a crucial missing link in the canon of psychedelic and experimental music of the 60s and 70s.
In a lineage with other uncompromising women singers such as Edith Piaf, Nico, and Diamanda Galas, Ribeiro's is a sound of...
