PSYCHEDELIC/PROGRESSIVE/FOLK

HENDRIX, JIMI - SUEY/I NEED YOU EVERY DAY (7"/SUNDAZED)

Recorded by Hendrix in 1966, when he was still making a living as an in-demand sideman, 'Suey' originally was the flip side of 'As The Clouds Drift By', a single by the voluptuous B-movie actress Jayne Mansfield. The single was licensed to several European labels just weeks after Mansfield died in an automobile accident on June 29, 1967. On Side 2 we find a surprisingly strong '66 recording featuring vocalist Ricky Mason, backed by Hendrix doing another ace session job.

DOMADORA - LACUNA (BLACK) (LP/KOZMIK ARTIFACT)

Collecting references that point to bands like Earthless, Pink Floyd, Mother Engine and Karma to Burn a Parisian trio formed in 2011 have been electrifying minds and ear channels with a devastating sonic arsenal. Two albums already released in the pack, a sonority able to tame the psychedelia in a masterful way while assimilating it at the same time. Improvisation and warming vibrations without certain direction help to form the panel of one of the most captivating French bands of the present time, Domadora which arrives with their third release 'Lacuna'. Limited to 100 copies.

DOMADORA - TIBETAN MONK (LP/KOZMIK ARTIFACT)

ELECTRIC ORANGE - UNTERWASSER. VOL. 1 (2LP) (LP/ADANSONIA)

This music was recorded 2002 at the Mankin Records 10 year Anniversary Festival at the Toskana-Therme, a beautiful thermal bath in Bad Sulza/Germany. Electric Orange played 2 sets (each 2 hours) - one early in the morning and another one late evening. Contrary to any other Electric Orange albums, this was only a two member electronic performance using analogue synthesizers, organ, guitar, vocoder, sequencer, tapes and sampler (no computers). The relaxed and very warm atmosphere in the bath influenced the music of the band a lot. The result was a very floating, spacey performance. People were drifting in the water, were lying around, all almost naked, listening to the music over- and underwater. Limited to 300 hand-numbered copies on blue/black marbled vinyl.

ESTUARY BLACKS - (BLACK) ESTUARY BLACKS (LP/KOZMIK ARTIFACT)

Having formerly worked with these Welsh rockers on their previous project, 'Bomb The Sun', Kozmik Artifactz release their stunning debut.

Hailing from The Gower Peninsula, South Wales, Estuary Blacks are a 3 piece band who play progressive, dynamic, heavy psych. For fans of Kyuss, Mogwai, GY!BE and Elder. Prog like complexity, post-rock intensity and stoner-like fuzz all weaved together in a tapestry of moving, atmospheric and at times breathtaking intelligent groove.

EXPLODING EYES ORCHESTRA - II (LP/SVART)

This is the second and last part of the saga that is The Exploding Eyes Orchestra. What begun as a sidetrack or a therapy group from Jess and the Ancient Ones while the band were going through a turbulent, inactive period, has since then morphed back into the mothership. The Exploding Eyes Orchestra represented a more earthy approach to vintage psychedelic rock music, towards which Jess and the Ancient Ones then steered as well, and eventually found themselves with the exact same lineup.

FIRST BAND FROM OUTER SPACE - (BLACK) WE'RE ONLY IN IT FOR THE SPACEROCK (2LP) (LP/SPACE ROCK)

First Band From Outer Space were one of Sweden's premier space rock bands from Göteborg. After 3 demo CD-Rs, they released their first album in 2005 on Transubstans Records. The album was mastered for vinyl from the original CD mixes by Johan Dahlström. This is a classic space rock record, which is edited down for vinyl from the original CD but also features two unreleased tracks. Fans of Hawkwind, Darxtar, Yuri Gagarin, The Spacious Mind and others will dig this album. Limited to 200 copies on black vinyl.

HOLY MONITOR - II (LP/BLACKSPIN/PRIMI)

After almost two years of wait, Holy Monitor's second step ('II') is the follow up to their highly acclaimed debut album. Applying new elements of frenzy psychedelia and classy motorik riffs succeed to build a symmetric kraut pattern surrounded from unstoppable groovy vibes.

LA IGLESIA ATOMICA - (BLACK) GRAN MURO DE COMA (LP/CLOSTRIDIUM)

The legendary heavy psych/stoner rock band, and pioneer of the rock en Español movement from the '90s in Puerto Rico, La Iglesia Atómica (The Atomic Church) is back on stage after 20 years of absence.

PSYCHEDELIC SUNS - DISTANT LIGHT (CD/CLOSTRIDIUM)

Psychedelic Suns is a one man project creating '60s/'70s sounding psychedelic rock. The songs are more like jamming recorded in one take to make it sound more like live.

SPACE DEBRIS - SHE'S A TEMPLE (2LP) (LP/SPACE DEBRIS)

It also has jazzy parts but never loses its continuous originality, which has been typical for Space Debris.

 

GARAGE/BEAT/SURF/ROCK’N’ROLL

KRYNG - BABY YOU'RE THE ONE (7"/KURIOSA)

A terrific twosome: 'Baby You're The One', a dance freakbeat rouser, and 'Come & Go', a different version of the Kinks-styled favorite from the 'Don't Dig These Modern Times' LP. Hot on the heels of their fabulous second LP the Kryng deliver another blast. The Kryng trio bring us a refreshing mix of 1966 garage-punk and Nederfreakbeat.

POP/ROCK/WAVE/NOISE

KOFE - BALANCE/COMPUTER (12"/BORDELLO A PARIGI)

Kofe aka Coffee was one of the pioneering Russian new wave bands in the mid '80s although they were not very known in that time. The band was founded in 1983 in Leningrad and in 1986 they released their amazing second album 'Balance', which was reissued 5 years ago on Baran Records/Other Voices Records. Bordello A Parigi had the opportunity to release a 12" single of this album with two album tracks and additional edits by Lithuanian born KGBK who you might know from his London based Parabox radio show.

ANGEL CORPUS CHRISTI - THE REAL ANGEL CORPUS CHRISTI (LP/MONO-TONE)

Avant-garde or traditional pop auteur? Angel Corpus Christi launches her career-long compilation, from her 1984 debut to recent stuff, mixing idiosyncratic covers and minimalist, left-field, ultra catchy pop. The songs feature guest stars Alan Vega (Suicide), Dean Wareham (Luna/Galaxie 500) and Sonic Boom (Spacemen 3/Spectrum) along the way.

DUCHAMP - KANSAS CITY • 1980 (LP/ALONA'S DREAM)

DuChamp played devolved post punk with a funky backbone and a distinctly midwestern artrock vibe. Psychedelic synths and tense drums mix with sweaty, suggestive lyrics and melodies. This compilation collects the group's first formal forays into Kansas City's Chapman Recording Studio in early 1980. It features all three of DuChamp's hard to find garage-wave singles remastered from the original tapes. As well as three songs recorded alongside the original singles and unreleased until now. Includes insert with rare photos and liner notes by the band.

TALLY HO! - ADAM'S AASTHMA (LP/BEAST)

Slacker pop from France, suitable for fans of Pavement and Parquet Courts. Instead of letting the dogs loose on the songs, Tally Ho! dominates the electric horses, pulling on the bridle of controlled rhythms and stroking them with pure tunes.

VARIOUS - PLAYGROUND NOISES (BLACK) (LP/GEHEIMNIS)

A collection of sought-after and hard to find gems from the international dark/new wave and post-punk genre of the '80s.

Four band garage punk split 10" EP featuring Scumbag Millionaire and "DEMONS" from Sweden and Black Gremlin and King Mastino from Italy.

ABANDONED - KILLED BY FAITH (LP/RADIATION)

Originally released in 1985, this is the sole album by Tony Cadenas' own The Abandoned, the band he formed after the Adolescents original break up in 1981. Sounding a lot like Tony's original band but with an heavier Germs influence, and a more metallic, darker, almost Motörhead-esque touch. As long as Adolescents got back on track, right before releasing their mid '80s comeback masterpiece 'Brats In Battalions' this obscure page of California punk rock history got completely forgotten and was never reopened until today. A band that really pushed the boundaries for the time while sticking to their roots, something most bands were not able to do. A must for all California punk rock maniacs out there!

WHODUNIT - MEMORIES FROM A SH*T HOLE (LP/BEAST)

On the garage-punk band's fourth full-length we hear 13 songs, dominated by the spirits of Lux Interior and Jeffrey Lee Pierce, at times with additional flashes of The Nomads, New Christs or even Tom Waits!

BOOK OF AIR: VVOLK - SE (IN) DE BOS (LP/SUB ROSA)

'Se (In) De Bos' is a slow paced 60 minute piece performed by the 18 musicians 'vvolk' orchestra and composed by Stijn Cools. As in the first Book Of Air album 'Fieldtone' and the second 'Vvolk', the parameters time and sound are again widely present.

RIYL Ryuichi Sakamoto's ambient works and Biosphere.

Zos Kia was formed by John Gosling (Mekon), John Balance (Coil) and Min, and features guest Peter 'Sleazy' Christopherson (Throbbing Gristle).

KILLER MOON - (BLACK) NOCTURNE INTO NEBULA (LP/KOZMIK ARTIFACT)

Killer Moon is a twenty first century psychedelic rock band that sounds like Black Sabbath and the Doors have melted into one another. Feels like an out of body experience under the influence of music. Killer Moon exists in the space between the in-between, transcendental beings only here for a moment reminding us that life is not limited to the five senses we have been force feed our entire lives. Killer Moon sound mixes the melancholic beauty and noise of Amaris Aviles and amazing melodies with baroque flourishes of Jesse Garza held together by the fierce passionate drumming of Anthony Macias. Killer Moon spills every inch of their soul on these songs, reflecting the joys, sorrows, and the complications of love and life. It's their sound, many will come to recognise soon as they embark the journey into other worldly adventures.

GNOSIS - THE OFFERING OF SEVEN (CD/TERROR FROM HELL)

Gnosis's second album, following their debut album on Nuclear War Now! is undeniably inspired by the Greek and South American scene of early '90s. Slowered majestic parts, eerie synth-based layers, thundering drumming and simple yet horrifingly intriguing riffage conjures a solid and evil release which will please both old-school and newer listeners.

JT RIPPER - GATHERING OF THE INSANE (CD/I HATE RECORDS)

The German power trio JT Ripper's second album is storming forth, ready to attack the weak of minds with its pure primeval energy! Strongly rooted in the late '80s tradition, but still managing to sound fresh and potent! Inspired by both the Teutonic black/thrash/speed sound of countrymen Desaster and Hellish Crossfire and the more deathrash-ier ditto of Possessed and Pentacle.

 

JAZZ/AVANTGARDE

BLACK ARTISTS GROUP - IN PARIS, ARIES 1973 (LP/AGUIRRE)

Outstanding free jazz session recorded in 1973 in Paris by Chicago outfit BAG. It was Lester Bowie, trumpeter with the Art Ensemble of Chicago, who suggested that the Black Artists Group (BAG) should head for Paris. In 1972 several members of BAG took his advice and flew to France for an extended stay. The following year a concert featuring saxophonist Oliver Lake, trumpeters Baikida Carroll and Floyd LeFlore, drummer Charles Bobo Shaw and trombonist Joseph Bowie (Lester's younger brother) was recorded and subsequently issued as 'In Paris, Aries 1973', a strictly limited edition LP on the group's own label.

ELECTRONIC MUSIC/AMBIENT/D’N’B/TRIPHOP

DRESSEL, HEINRICH - LOST IN THE WOODLAND (LP/BORDELLO A PARIGI)

Few producers can capture atmospheres and moods like Heinrich Dressel. The Minimal Rome boss left jaws on the floor with his first appearance on Bordello A Parigi, 'The House Of The Rising Synth' demonstrating the breadth of this Italian musician's sound. Now Dressel returns, this time with a full eight tracks for 'Lost In The Woodland'. In this analogue forest anything is possible. From the whimsical resonance of the title piece, a sonic pathway through a verdant soundscape is laid. Gentle melodies caress and embrace before the road bends into shadows filled with dramatic twists and unseen dangers. Romantic moments are juxtaposed by triumphal chords and daring drums signalling immediate panic or outright victory.

 

SOUNDTRACKS/LOUNGE/CULT ETC

HOENIG, MICHAEL - THE BLOB O.S.T. (LP/ONE WAY STATIC)

'The Blob' is a 1988 American SF-Horror film written and directed by Chuck Russell and Frank Darabont. Special effects in the film were handled by legendary makeup artist Tony Gardner, known for his work on 'Army Of Darkness', 'Darkman', 'The Return Of The Living Dead' and who helped create the signature helmets for Daft Punk. Soundtrack duties for the film were handled by German composer Michael Hoenig, who actually doesn't need much of an introduction. Hoenig was part of the burgeoning progressive kraut and kosmische rock scene in Berlin where he was a member of the band Agitation Free in 1971. In 1975 Hoenig joined the electronic-pioneer band Tangerine Dream and then went on to collaborate with other big names like Klaus Schulze and Manuel Göttsching (of Ash Ra Tempel). In 1977 he released his first solo album, the highly acclaimed Berlin School classic 'Departure From The Northern Wasteland'. He also has composed a diverse and extensive catalog of material that includes the theme to 'Dark Skies', the soundtrack to the extremely popular 'Baldur's Gate' PC game and countless others. Horror scores composed by Hoenig include 'Class Of 1999' (1990) and 'The Gate' (1987) and he also performed on the soundtrack for 'Galaxy Of Terror' (1981). Michael's music for 'The Blob' is classic top shelf synth-driven electronica that fits the film like a glove. The voices, dark strings and feverish percussion create a rhythmic drive that embodies heroic desperation and a massive sense of relentless doom. Hoenig fashioned a creepy, compelling and atmospheric synth-based score, unleashing textured waves of sonic terror and suspense. Available as a deluxe vinyl edition on classic black vinyl (with obi strip).

SORGINI, GIULIANO - AFRICA OBSCURA (LP/FOUR FLIES)

Recorded by composer and multi-instrumentalist Giuliano Sorgini between 1974 and 1976 in his studio in Prati district in Rome, a stone's throw from Italian television offices, 'Africa Oscura' is a set of tracks inspired by the wildest and most obscure secrets of those lands, intended to be the background of some tv documentaries.
