"New Atlantis Records is incredibly pleased to announce Treffpunkt, the latest LP from polyrhythmic avant-punks U Sco. Consisting of members from several other notable, genre...

"In today's increasingly barren rock and roll landscape, Ulan Bator stand as beacons of explorative songwriting. Formed in Paris in 1993 by Amaury Cambuzat (vocals, guitar and keyboards) and Olivier Manchion (bass), the band's atmospheric approach to composition has consistently yielded guitar-driven, avant-rock at once hypnotic and untamed. And while their sound has developed in a variety of directions - often in relationship to changing line-ups and various collaborations, including with Faust and...

"Odyssey stands as Ulmer's signature masterpiece, the purest and most accessible showcase for his bold, genre-clashing guitar vision. With minimal accompaniment, Ulmer's guitar is always the meat of the ensemble, especially since his unique tuning (developed for this album) allows him to cover bass parts as well as guitar leads. It's not only Ulmer's finest album, but a certified classic of the modern jazz avant-garde. Now it finally gets the audiophile treatment it deserves, mastered at 45RPM from...

James Blood Ulmer: guitar
Mats Gustafsson: tenor & baritone saxophone
Ingebrigt Håker Flaten: electric & double bass
Paal Nilssen-Love: drums, percussion

This places Blood in front of a smokin', crazy band of youthful equals and makes for the best and most 'out' album he's made in years and years!

"Viking jazz band The Thing team up with one of the legendary men of jazz and blues. Guitarist and singer Ulmer combines (free) jazz, blues, funk, and rock -- always on the edge...

Vinyl version featuring four tracks from the 10 song CD.

Hard to imagine a more powerful or intriguing, improvising power trio than these 3: Charles Hayward on drums (This Heat and Massacre), Kawabata Makoto (Acid Mothers Temple) and Guy Segers...

First-ever vinyl reissue of this Finnish jazz/rock album recorded in May, 1975. Released on the Hi-Hat label, this was the only release by this Finn-filled supergroup. The best known player is the bassist and band-leader Pekka Pohjola. Also featured are Olli Ahvenlahti (electric and grand piano, moog, string synth and organ), Paroni Paakkunaien (flute, soprano, alto, C-melody saxes), Nono Soderberg (guitar), and Reino Lane (drums). While the other four are not as well known to the casual eye as Pohjola...

This reissues one of the rarer and stranger items in the Magma cannon. Recorded by the 1001 Degrees Centigrade band (Christian Vander, Klaus Blasquiz, Francois Cahen, Francis Moze, Teddy Lasry, Yochk'o Seffer + guests), this was initiated by Magma's...

Even though the hype for this record does NOT state this, this is the (partially) remixed and (fully) remastered version, worked on by Didier de Roos between 2015 and 2017.
It’s ‘partially’ remixed because the multi-track tapes recorded by Eric Faes are lost and only the stereo masters still exist.
But four tracks do exist in multi-track form and these four (Dense, La Corne Du Bois Des Pendus, Combat, La Musique d’Erich Zann) were able to receive the deluxe 'Steve Wilson but by an even better...

This is the first time that UZ’s fine and FINAL album has been released on vinyl.

For their 11th and definitely their final studio album, [Elvis AND Daniel have left the building, friends], Univers Zero have hugely shaken up their direction from their last release, Clivages.
Gone are many of the trappings of the 'old' Univers Zero. The violin? Gone! The bassoon? Gone!.
The new lineup consists of ...

John Dikeman saxophones / Jon Rune Str�m double bass / Tollef �stvang drums / Joe McPhee pocket trumpet, alto saxophone.

This vinyl version has an entire side of otherwise unreleased material!
"John Dikeman, Jon Rune Str�m and Tollef �stvang choose as the name of their trio the title of an Albert Ayler�s composition, �Universal Indians�, because of its double symbolism. The purpose was to inspire their playing in the free jazz patrimony of the likes of John Coltrane, Ornette Coleman, Cecil...

"Two years only after “Il paese del tramonto”, Unreal City return with a new work, “Frammenti notturni”. If the two previous albums (the debut album “La crudeltà di aprile” was released in 2013) contributed to spread the band’s name all around the international progressive scene, thanks to concerts played in Europe and overseas at the Canadian Terra Incognita festival, this third chapter is destined to consolidate their status as one of the of the most important names in the Italian prog-rock panorama...

Bill Frisell is undoubtedly one of the most influential musicians in today's jazz scene. His compositions are, however, little explored: either because of the lack of the necessary critical distance, either because their simple hidden look hides folds that are difficult to penetrate.
From a musical point of view, Unscientific Italians is not so much a tribute or an orchestral reworking of Frisell's repertoire, but rather a rewriting and idiosyncratic orchestration that borrows the compositional and...

Beautiful, exact replica of the great-looking, gatefold original of this album.

This was a one and done, great, very rare & sorta underdiscovered, 1973 classical rock quartet's only album (vocals, Hammond Organ/piano/synths, bass/guitar & drums). From the opening 15 seconds, you'll know that this one delivers the goods & comes close to "out Tarkus-ing" ELP themselves.

Everyone plays really well, the singer has a slight Greg Lake sound to his voice, & those classic analog sounds are a...

This is a beautiful, numbered, limited edition of 899 copies of this classic, which is part of the Prog Rock Italia series - mastered from the original tapes on 180 gram vinyl in a beautiful gatefold sleeve.

Physical copies of the hard to find third release by this bafflingly brilliant outfit.

"Sometimes albums are the collective energy of the people involved and how they interact with their surroundings. This would be that. On our third album, we were down to the original 3 members and it was back to basics.
By this time we had figured out that the only way we could excel as a 3 piece of 2 guitars & drums was to play tightly knit short songs that had little room to breath for all involved. I...

$10.00 off the regular price, while they last!

Finally reissued for the first time in over 2 decades (and issued for the very first time on vinyl), is the classic, fantastic fourth release by this quintessential French avant / art / performance band and spectacle. One of France's greatest contributions to avant-progressive music during the 70s-80s!
I love all of this band's output, but for me, this one, their fifth, is probably my single favorite of their works! Totally big, insane...

Well, they certainly are wearing their influences on their sleeve and also on their album cover.
Having said all that, this is a pretty good Hammond organ led progressive rock release that doesn’t actually mimic ELP or Tarkus.
This is a numbered, limited edition of 500 copies of a record originally self released in 2006 and includes a CD of the entire album + bonus extras. There is no CD-only version.

This is written in inspiration by and using the instrumentation and style of “Bitches Brew” and man, often it really does run that voodoo DOWN!

Another great band I discovered thanks to getting to see them play, at a show where I just went 'because', not knowing anything about them and where they completely surprised me and utterly slayed!
Us, Today are a young trio from Cincinnati, OH, who play a sort of modern progressive rock with a lot of modern / hipster touches.
The unique lineup is
Kristin Agee-vibes + synths
Joel Griggs-guitar + synths
Jeff Mellott-drums
The sound is interesting, fun, rockin' and unique....

The first vinyl reissue in many, many years of this classic one-off release that's *almost* a Amon Duul II album, but isn't quite an Amon Duul II album. It's still really good though....

"It seems that even in 1973 Amon Düül II still wanted to do double albums! But, instead of making WOLF CITY into a double, somehow this side-line project came in to being, fronted by three musicians who had earlier worked together in Passport (on their debut LP). Although since reissued as an Amon Düül II album...

“The combined forces of Steve Davis, Kavus Torabi (Gong/ Cardiacs/ Knifeworld/ Guapo) and Michael J. York (Coil/Teleplasmiste/Guapo) have arrived at no less than a modular driven kosmische colossus of transcendent power enough to drive all talk of green baize firmly into the blue yonder.
With Davis’ modular geometry and ambient structures weaving with Torabi’s keen and skewed sense of melody and York’s various gifts for pipes, drones and fevered abstract – the result is a beguiling tapestry as likely..

"UUUU is a new outfit featuring Edvard Graham Lewis, Thighpaulsandra, Matthew Simms, and Valentina Magaletti. Individually these humans have implanted feathers in caps such as Coil, Dome, Wire, Tomaga, etc. Collectively they form UUUU, a powerhouse construction of fierce and free sonic exploration, as liberating as it is frightening, resulting in a richly rewarding sound. The artists united present a project of exquisite curiosity and confident chaos where the individual thumbprints mesh into a...
