Nobukazu TakemuraChild's View - Remix (German pressing) ... CD
Idyllic/99 Records (Germany), 1996. Used .... $11.99
Remixed version of Takemura's crucial first LP! If you know the Child's View LP, you know that it's filled with beautiful jazzy grooves that feature a mixture of Brazilian, soundtrack, soul, and hip hop scoring. This remix LP pushes the groove even more, by offering junglist and abstract takes on some of the best tracks on the album – including "Searching", "For Tomorrow", "Crescent", "Lake Of Winter", and "Reflect Tomorrow". Remixes by Wagon Christ, Mad Professor, Aphex Twin, Cold Cut, and Roni Size. Very moody, very spacey, but still with all the charm of the original! CD

New VariousMasters At Work 10th Anniversary Collection Part 2: 1996-2000 (Definitive Remixes & Original Productions) ... CD
BBE (UK), Mid 90s-Early 2000s. Used 4CD .... $24.99
Part two of this stunning collection of the work of the duo known as Masters At Work! This 4CD collection showcases MAW's amazing ability to blend a wide range of influences from house, classic disco, hip hop, and Latin into a dancefloor friendly mix that not only sounds fresh and up-to-date, but which also has a very strong respect for grooves of the past. MAW have worked with so many different artists over the past 5 years, that this collection ends up being as much a rich document of the growth of club and soul music in general, as it is a testament to their own stunning work. Like the first volume in this series, every track is a killer – and like the first, this is a overstuffed package that's got a huge amount of tracks! Titles include "To Be In Love" by India, "Divine Love" by Ultra Note, "Days Like This" by Kenny Lattimore, "The Ghetto/El Barrio" by George Benson, "MAW Expensive" by Masters At Work, "Watching Windows" by Roni Size/Reprazent, Atmosfear's "Dancing In Outer Space", "Bangin" by Kenlou 6, Monday Michiru's "Sunshine After the Rain", "Around the World" from Daft Punk, "Desire" by Nu Colors, "Are You Using Me" by Luther Vandross, "What'cha Gonna Do" by Eternal, "Spirit" by Cunnie Williams, "Recue Me" by Sunkids, Incognito's "Always There", "I Want You Back" by Mel B, and 4 tracks from Nuyorican Soul: "Mind Fluid", "You Can Do It Baby", "It's Alright, I Feel It", and "Runaway"!

Alessandro Alessandroni/Francesco DeMasiLesbo (limited edition) ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1969. New Copy .... $15.99
Sexy ladies on the cover, and some equally sexy sounds underneath – served up in a perfect 60s Italian blend of jazz and bossa-based styles! Sweeping strings bring a nice sense of depth to some numbers, while others have a more intimate feel – either via spare guitar, or some jazzy elements on piano, sax, and organ – shifting instrumentation that really keeps things interesting throughout, and which makes the record feel like some rich narrative on its own, in sound – without any need for the images on the screen. The whole thing is wonderful – one of those Italian soundtrack treasures that delivers even more than it promises – and music was composed by Alessandro Alessandroni and Francesco De Masi, then orchestrated by De Masi, with some cool wordless vocal moments as well. Titles include a number of variations on "Lesbo" plus the sweet vocal opener "Qualsiasi Cosa", "Crepuscolo Sul Mare", and "IL'Isola Dell'Amore". CD

A duo of mid 70s Italian erotic comedy scores – Alessandro Alessandroni's La Signora Gioca Bene A Scopa and Gianfranco Plenizio's L'Inermiera from '74 and '75 – back-to-back! La Signora Gioca Bene A Scopa features fun waltzy numbers with tinkering keys and sweet strings, and some of the most playfully out there vocalism we've ever heard Edda Dell'Orso! Includes 19 sequences of the title theme. L'Infermiera features a fairly straight, nicely groovy score by Gianfranco Plenizio with style to spare – from laidback & jazzy to more playful with grooves with oddball comic sound flourishes. Includes 12 variations on the title theme. CD

AlpayYekte ... CD
Pharaway Sounds (Spain), Early 70s. New Copy .... $15.99
Unusual sounds from Alpay – an artist who perfectly shows the unique east/west crossroads that ran through the Turkish scene of the 70s! At one level, Alpay's as Western as you might guess from his look on the cover – and attempts here to serve up rockish tracks aimed at the mainstream – but his music is also heavy on plenty of older Eastern elements too – unusual inflections on the vocals, exotic instrumentation alongside electronic, and a really compelling style that sounds both ancient and futuristic at the same time! There's a budding spiritualism that seems to seep out around the corners of more conventional song structures – and the blend definitely echoes some of the best modes of the Turkish scene of the same time. The package features a very well-selected batch of Alpay recordings from the early 70s, complete with notes – and titles include "Bak Kalbim", "Akca Kizlar", "Can Karagozlum", "Ask Boyledir", "Suna", and "Denizciler".

AM & Shawn LeeLa Musique Numerique ... CD
Park The Van, 2013. New Copy .... $10.99 12.95
Loads of great electro sounds here – bassy keyboards, splashy beats, and some cool moogy moments – all wrapped up in the kind of heavy funk we've always loved from Shawn Lee! This cool collaboration with AM furthers the pair's step into the best sounds of the 80s – modes that almost feel like digging up the most underground funk of the generation at points, but which also get some pretty tuneful songwriting at others – great vocals that themselves are pretty electronic, and often echo that great moment in the years past punk and disco – when genres broke down for a bit, and music got especially wonderful! The set isn't totally retro – leave it to the pair to bring in some of their own voice as well – and titles include "Good Blood", "Suffer Like Me", "Replay", "In The Aftermath", "Two Times", "Louna", "Iron Leaf", and "Special Disco".

Ali Ag AmoumineTakamba (with bonus 7-inch) ... LP
Sahel Sounds/Mississippi, 2011. New Copy LP & 7Inch .... $11.99 18.99
A really wonderful document of of the Takamba style of music in Northern Mali and Niger – passionate, energetic and hypnotically performed by Ali Ag Amoumine! Ali's home is in Timbouctou, a couple hundred kilometers upriver from the Takamba region, and it was here that this excellent recording by Christopher Kirkley took place. It's essentially traditional regional guitar music, electrified and played in droning, wholly entrancing patterns, while the rhythm is played on the calabash. The songs here are described as being informed by Ali's travels and including his own compositions, and it does have inimately personal feel, while also pulling us in strictly on the basis of the soaring, hypnotic sounds. Includes "Adernibah", "Khomeissa", "Fatimatou", "Damara", "Kalitay", "Hali Diallo", "Taliat Nouhirase", "Nouvelle Annee" and "Mali". LP, Vinyl record album

A great follow-up EP to Anika's addictive Stones Throw debut – a darkness-tinged batch of covers – bringing some great songs by The Kinks, The Crystals, Chromatics and Shocking Blue along with a pair of dubbed up versions of earlier Anika singles. There's a bit of no wave vibe of stark electronics and moody vocals, but Anika's got an overall presense unlike anyone else. Once again she gets some excellent production by Geoff Barrow of Beak> and Portishead. Titles include "I Go To Sleep", "He Hit Me", "Love Buzz", "In The City", "No One's There (Dub)" and "Yang Yang (Dub)". LP, Vinyl record album

An amazing electronic score – put together for an equally amazing film – Edward Artemiev's wonderful music for Andre Tarkovsky's Solaris – sounds that are as riveting as the images on the screen! Artemiev beautifully blends analogue keyboard lines with strings, sometimes creating waves of melodic joy, sometimes shifting into much darker, more abstract passages – but all always at a level that really goes past the usual electronics of the time! There's a visionary feel to the music that makes the album completely sublime – and titles include "Ocean", "Dream", "Station", "Disease", and "Return". LP, Vinyl record album

Edward ArtemievStalker/The Mirror – Music From Andre Tarkovsky's Motion Pictures (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Mirumir (Russia), 1975/1979. New Copy (reissue).... $29.99
Sublime soundtrack music from Edward Artemiev – not a big name for film scoring on this side of the Iron Curtain, but a really well-remembered talent for his classic 70s work for the films of Andrey Tarkovsky! Side one of this album features wonderful sounds from the film Stalker – music that begins in a sweet electronic mode, but soon gets darker – a weird space that's somewhere between the German elements of Cluster and Tangerine Dream, and some of the more abstract electronics of the underground academic scene! Yet throughout it all, Artemiev has a very visual approach to his sounds – one that steps out nicely on the one track from the film The Mirror, and an extended tribute to the director too. Titles include "Exodus", "Dedication To Andrey Tarkovsky", "Meditation", "They Go Long", "Stalker", and "Train". LP, Vinyl record album

David Axelrod & OthersAxelrod Chronicles ... CD
Fantasy, Early 70s. New Copy .... $3.99 14.98
It's great to see that David Axelrod's finally getting his due – and this reissue of material from Fantasy is one of the first reissues of his work in the US! Most cuts here are much more jazz-based than Axelrod's higher-concept material under his own name for Capitol in the late 60s – and the music represents Axe's key move to Fantasy after bigger label fame – a move that he made with Cannonball Adderley, who also figures in on some of these tracks. The CD features 8 tracks from Axelrod's Full Axe album – a tasty bit of funky fusion that's one of his best jazz-oriented releases – plus a sampling of tracks from other albums he produced and/or arranged for Fantasy. Titles from Full Axe include "My Family", "Mucho Chupar", "Don't You Worry 'Bout A Thing", and "Everything Counts" – and other tracks include "Cantaro" and "Solitario" by Gene Ammons, "Bach" and "Sierra Morena" by Hampton Hawes, "Quit It" by Nat Adderley, "Goodbye So Long" by Funk Inc, and "Stayin Place" from the Big Man 2LP set.

Clean Feed (Portugal), 2012. New Copy Gatefold .... $14.99
A heady trio performance from Chicago – recorded live at The Hideout with a really wonderful sound! Chi avant players Dave Rempis and Fred Lonberg-Holm are joined by the heavy drums of Paal Nilssen-Love – and together create a sense of energy that really goes beyond the expected – one of those rare meetings of musicians in a setting like this where they really seem to unlock the best in each other – and inspire themselves to push their sound, but in a really unified way. Rempis sounds great on tenor, alto, and baritone sax – Lonberg-Holm plays a bit of electronics alongside his cello – and Nilssen-Love plays mostly on the drum kit, with a bit of added percussion. Tracks are long, but never get lost in their depth – and titles include "Roller Nuts", "Release Leaves", and "Claplock". CD

There's a much more dramatic mood to Bayle's work than a lot of the electronic experimenters captured back in the day – with these piercing sounds – but never in a disquieting or unappealing way. It's got it's jarring moments, but it's ultimately quite hypnotic. Includes "L'Aventure Du Cri", "Le Langage Des Fleurs", "La Preuve Par le Sens", ""L'Epreuve Par Le Son" and "La Philosophie Du Non".

Beaver & KrauseAll Good Men ... LP
Warner, 1972. Very Good+ .... $5.99
A higher concept album than usual for the team of Beaver & Krause – a record that still features plenty of cool moog and electronics by the pair, but which also has them teamed up with arranger Jimmie Haskell in a set of tunes that mixes older themes with original numbers! A fair bit of tracks here have vocals – either by Krause, or by female vocalists Cris Williamson, Adrienne Anderson, or Elisabeth Wilson – plus the "celestial choir" on a few tracks. There's a hearkening back here that's a bit confused at some moments – mixing Scott Joplin with the then-common apology to Native American mode – but things sound best on the original numbers, which have picked up a groove a bit more than before, and even have some nice warmer tones we really like. Titles include the spacey spinner "Between The Sun & The Rain", plus "Loves Of Col Evol", "Sweet Williams", "Bluebird Canyon Stomp", "Looking Back Now", "Child Of Morning Sun", and "All Good Men".

Not what you might expect when shopping for African music – unique electronic sounds from Cameroon musician Francis Bebey – as heavy on keyboards as other 70s work is on guitar! There's still plenty of acoustic elements in the mix though, too – lots of earthy percussion at the bottom, which links some of these tracks to other styles of the time – even though some of the more unusual tunes here have these great electronic sounds that almost feel like they came from the late 70s German underground! The mix of modes is breathtaking – as if Moebius and Roedelius recorded with musicians from Lagos – shaking off the colder sounds of the Conny Plank side of the spectrum, to come up with a warm new style that's really unique! Titles include "La Condition Masculine", "Sahle", "The Coffee Cola Song", "Super Jingle", "Pygmy Love Song", "Agatha", "Catching Up", and "Divorce Pygmee". LP, Vinyl record album

Andrea Belfi is on drums, percussion and electronics, David Grubbs is on electric guitar, keys and some vocals, and Stefano Pilia plays acoustic and electric guitar. We've been fans of David Grubbs for decades, from the more dissonant underground rock, to the more textural instrumental material, and he's found excellent partners in Italian players Belfi and Pilia.

Each track has a slightly different lineup, and a slightly different flavor – and Berrocal plays some very unusual variations on his instruments, sometimes with electronics used to process the acoustic origins of the sound! Other players shift throughout the record – and include Bernard Vitet on violin, Philippe Pochan on cello, and even the rocker Vince Taylor – who does a recitation on one very cool track. Titles include "Post-Card", "Galimatias", "Paralleles", and "Bric A Brac". CD

New Black HeatNo Time To Burn ... CD
Atlantic (UK), 1974. New Copy .... $16.99
A stone classic from Black Heat – the group's second album, and even tighter than their first! The group's size has dropped a bit between albums – but that only helps them cook even more – dropping a bit of the horn section from before, which allows even more emphasis on their razor-sharp rhythms! There's a slight hint of Afro Funk in some of the rhythms – and the keyboards cook with lots of sweet clavinet lines – mixed with a production style that features some bubbling electronic elements that remind us a lot of that crazy "magic bag" that was used by the Lafayette Afro-Rock Band. That group might be a good point of comparison, but the band also shares a lot of Kool & The Gang's ensemble funk style – especially on their cover of "Love The Life You Live" – which they burn here beautifully! Other tracks include "Super Cool", "M&M's", "Rapid Fire", "You Should Have Listened", "Times Have Changed", and "Check It All Out". CD

One of Anthony Braxton's first great recordings with a larger group – a really impressive array of sounds and tones that takes his compositional experiments to the next level! Tunes here are all those complicated Braxton formulas from the 70s – carried out by a host of equally-imaginative players who include Dwight Andrews, Vinny Golia, JD Parran, Marty Erlich, and Ned Rothenberg on saxes and reeds; Kenny Wheeler, Leo Smith, and Michael Mossman on trumpets; Ray Anderson, George Lewis, and James King Roosa on trombones; Marilyn Crispell on piano, Bobby Naughton on vibes, James Emery on guitar, Bob Ostertag on synthesizer, Thurman Barker on percussion and marimba, and Braxton himself at the head of the ensemble! The electronics come across with some great tones that really link the freer reed moments – and the sound of the whole album is plenty powerful throughout. CD

Anthony BraxtonTrio & Duet ... LP
Sackville, Mid 70s. Near Mint- .... $24.99
Really creative work from Anthony Braxton – a 70s gem that has the reedman working in two different settings – both of them great! The first half of the record reunites Braxton with the electronics of Richard Teitelbaum – working here on some very cool moog, mixed with percussion – all in the best dark sounds of the Time Zones recording from the pair. Leo Smith is also in the group on trumpet – adding in a sense of space that's really wonderful – and Braxton himself works a variety of clarinets with really rich sounds – as the trio takes off on "Composition 36". The rest of the record shows that great old school side of Braxton – that crucial knowledge of the American jazz songbook that he only showed the world this strongly in the mid 70s – and which sparkles here as one of the best examples of that love! The remaining tracks feature Anthony on alto and Dave Holland on bass – working out some really special magic on "The Song Is You", "You Go To My Head", and "Embraceable You". LP, Vinyl record album

Anthony Braxton/Duke EllingtonConcept Of Freedom ... CD
Hatology (Switzerland), 2003. New Copy .... $9.99 19.99
Braxton and Ellington appear here as composers of the work, not as performers – but the spirit of both is alive and well in this performance, breaking out in complicated waves of sound that recall the earliest moments of the former, but which are also informed by the concepts of freedoms put forth by the latter! The performance features passages from Braxton's "Composition No 257" and Ellington's "Freedoms No 1, 4, & 6 From The Sacred Concert No 2" – performed by a sonically-conscious quartet that includes Roland Dahinden on trombone, Hildegard Kleeb on piano, Dimitris Polisoidis on violin, and Robert Holdrich on electronics – used here in a heavy, textural way that reminds us a bit of Braxton's own recordings in the format during the 70s! There's moments when the deeper electronic tones bubble forth with the trombone that are simply wonderful – creating soundshapes and tones that are worth the price of the record alone, slightly augmented by bits of piano and violin.

A tasty batch of instrumentals for the club set! The "Brothers" appear to be little more than a New York set of studio players, led by Bhen Lanzaroni – but they do a good job of replicating a Philly instrumental sound, with plenty of heavy bass at the bottom of the arrangements, and jazzy riffing on wah wah guitar, flute, and keyboards over the top. Washes of strings give the whole record a "hustle" feel – and the tracks blend into one another on each side, for a continuous mix of music that must have been aimed at trying to replicate the disco sound at home. Titles include versions of "You're The First, The Last, My Everything", "Kung Fu Fighting", "Doctor's Orders", and "Never Can Say Goodbye" – plus the originals "In The Pocket", "Ready For This", and "Everybody Loves A Winner".

The groove is super heavy, and falls somewhere in between NuYorican soul and Chicano Power rock – with a sound that's pretty close to Black Sugar, but a little bit more psychedelic, due to the heavy guitars and keyboards in the grooves. Hard congas take the lead on most of the tracks – especially the cut "Chapumbambe", which starts with a nice breakbeat. Other tracks include "Tema De Bwana", "Motemba", "La Patada", and the massive Latin soul cut "Lolita". LP, Vinyl record album

Cabaret VoltaireMicro-Phonies ... CD
Mute, 1984. New Copy .... $13.99 14.98
A key early moment for Cabaret Voltaire – a set that has the duo getting a bit more tuneful and song-based than before – yet still more than willing to experiment plenty with their sound! All the cool analogue electronics are still very firmly in place – and mixed with some mighty nice processed guitar riffs from Richard Kirk, and lots of dubby elements too – and the set also features some percussion and tablas that are used alongside electronic rhythms – often processed, but in ways that create an early undercurrent – almost like some of the Brian Eno rhythm experiments of the early 80s. Titles include "Do Right", "The Operative", "Digital Rasta", "Spies In The Wires", "Theme From Earthshaker", "James Brown", "Slammer", "Blue Heat", and "Sensoria". CD

John CaleHelen Of Troy (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Island/Culture Factory (France), 1975. New Copy .... $14.99 18.99
One of John Cale's greatest moments as a solo artist – a wonderfully dark record that also features lots of great guitar from Chris Spedding, plus electronics from Brian Eno too! There's a stark, flat tone to Cale's lyrics here – a quality that almost echoes some of Eno's albums from around the time, especially the first two – but which takes on some shapes and phrasing that are definitely in the spirit of John's larger body of work too. But man, there's some very spooky bits here – even where you wouldn't expect them – that sense of surprise that Cale could always bring to sweeter moments with the Velvet Underground, re-focused here wonderfully for his own needs. Titles include "Cable Hogue", "Engine", "Save Us", "My Maria", "I Keep A Close Watch", "Helen Of Troy", and "Sudden Death" – plus a cover of Jonathan Richman's "Pablo Picasso". CD

Plus as an added bonus, Connie Planck recorded this tasty, treat, so you know the electronics are in full effect. 7 tracks in all, including 'Serpentine", "Pauper's Daughter & I", "November", "Seven Days Awake", "Give Me No Roses", "Like INOBE GOD" and "One More Day".

John CarpenterAssault On Precinct 13 ... CD
Record Makers/Death Waltz (UK), 1976. New Copy .... $14.99 15.98
A super-dope electronic classic – John Carpenter's original soundtrack for his 1976 film Assault On Precinct 13! The main theme of the film is tremendous – early, raw electronic drums and bass – all moving in a slow, spacey, heavy funk sort of style – with nice noisy touches on the fringes, and an overall approach that's as thrilling as the film. The other tracks follow with a similar approach – using some really spare electric drums to set the pace, then filling in the rhythms with sinister bits on keys, bass, and added percussion. The whole thing's a pre-hip hop, pre-electro masterpiece – with a sound that's almost more mindblowing today than it was back in the 70s! Titles include "Street Thunder", "Main Title", "Napoleon Wilson", "Energy Stop", "Wrong Flavour", "Well's Flight", "Walking Out", and "Second Wave". CD

There's a weird and wonderful assortment of styles on this old sound library session from the 70s – a hip blend of electronics, keyboards, guitar, and percussion – all served up in some mighty cool modes from Daniela Casa! The music is moody at points, but often quite rhythmic – at a pace that helps keep things focused, and which makes the set way more than just an echoey studio experiment – with tuneful results that are somewhere in the best territory of electric horror scoring of the time. Titles include "Pericolo", "Strade Vuote", "Ignoto", "Vizio", "Noia", and "Occultismo". LP, Vinyl record album

ChangeSharing Your Love (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1982. Used .... $16.99
Sweet modern soul from this great group – one of the brightest points in major label soul during the early 80s! Change, ironically, is a group that went through a number of line-up changes, even in their prime – with the tight, clubby, yet geniunely soulful production a constant. This record is made all the better for the beautifully soulful dual lead vocals of James Robinson and Deborah Cooper. The tracks have deeply layered live instrumentation – keyboards, guitar, percussion, horns and strings – blended seamlessly with early 80s production touches. Includes the hits "The Very Best In You" and "Hard Times (It's Gonna Be Alright)", and others that are just as sweet: "Take You To Heaven", "Oh What A Night", "Promise Your Love","Keep On It", "You're My Number One" and more.

Some of the noisiest music we've heard so far from Cherrystones – a sweet set that's heavy on fuzz and electronics, but which still holds onto the strong sense of beat from before! There's a pretty dark vibe to most of the record – a bite that goes way beyond downtempo, and which reminds us of the way that Cherrystones first shook things up years ago – opening ears to corners of sounds that weren't always treated in the same way as funk – a journey that's taken us miles to get to the place of this striking little set!

The record shows an earlier spirit of the Chicago scene alive and well – that genre-crossing, generation-spanning love of so many different sounds and styles at once – a mode that first burst forth on the scene two decades back, often in the hands of John McEntire, who produced this album – and which still stands strong in the hands of its best purveyors like this.

Suzanne CianiLixiviation – Ciani/Musica Inc 1969 to 1985 ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy .... $22.99
Heavy electro work from Suzanne Ciani – an artist who peaked a bit later than some of her sound library contemporaries – which means she was able to contribute music experimental films, record productions, and video games – and not just the usual mainstream outlets! Ciani's electronics here are a great mix of modes – both analogue and digital – and her sounds often have a darkness that's really compelling, especially when you consider the ways some of them were used in areas that reached some larger audiences – really cool little spooky bits that underscore the more potent ways that electronic sounds were often used in the 70s generation. The music is light years beyond the playfulness of Perry & Kingsley – and has none of the softness of Ciani's later new age sides – a great revelation that will hopefully get her the recognition she deserves. Titles include "Atari Video Games Logo", "Princess With Orange Feet", "Paris 1971", "Live Buchla Concert 1975", "Sound Of Wetness", "Eighth Wave", "Liberator Atari TV Spot", "Pop & Pour Coca Cola Logo", and "Lixiviation".

Late 80s recordings from electronic genius Charles Cohen – but music with a spare, analogue quality that feels much more like material from the late 60s! The set features two pieces that Cohen scored for dance performance – but served up at a level that's quite spare and spacious – light years from the usual dance themes of the time, and very much at a level that recalls some of the earliest use of electronics in relation to the human body. The album is relatively short, but has a richness that's undeniable – real power and variety that come from the tracks "Group Motion" and "Generator". LP, Vinyl record album

Amazing sounds from Gal Costa – a brilliant live album that follows strongly in the mode of her Recanto studio album! Like that set, this one features Gal in the most experimental style she's used in years – bits of electronics and contemporary underground modes layered in with her sublime vocals – all in ways that reopen that leftfield side of Costa's talents that have been buried for so many years! Some tracks are quite intimate and personal, others are very powerful – and the performance was put together by both Caetano and Moreno Veloso, with backing by a trio that also features percussion from Domenico too. Titles include "Tudo Gil", "Da Maior Importancia", "Mansidao", "Forca Estranha", "Meu Bem Mel Mal", "O Amor", "Baby", "Deus E O Amor", "Segunda", "Barato Total", and "Autotune Autoerotico".

Fantasy/Decision, 1983. New Copy .... $11.99 15.99
A mindblowing debut from Cybotron – one of the most unusual groups to ever hail from Detroit – and that's saying a hell of a lot, given the musical legacy of the city! Cybotron have a sound that's starkly electronic, and a huge influence on later electro, hip hop, techno, and house – served up here as a spare, fuzzy approach to funk – but with lots of the colder touches you'd find from post-punk imports at the time! The blend is quite unique, and even more unusual given the fact that the trio were working in virtual obscurity on the Detroit scene – as an early project from the legendary Juan Atkins, with guitarist Jon-5, and the mysterious electronician 3070! There's more funk here than most of the group's electro contemporaries – but the sound is still nicely cold in all the right parts too – and titles include the seminal "Clear", which was years ahead of its time – plus "Cosmic Cars", "Cosmic Raindance", "Industrial Lies", "The Line", and "Alleys Of Your Mind". CD reissue also features some nice bonus cuts – including "Clear (Jose Animal Diaz rmx)", "Cosmic Cars (Detroit style mix)", "Techno City (voc)", "Techno City (inst)", "R-9 (inst)", and "Eden (voc)".

One of the most soulful 70s sessions from percussionist Andrew Cyrille – working here with a great lineup that includes David S Ware on tenor and Ted Daniel on trumpet and flute! The horn players really give the record a great sense of energy and focus – more so than some of Cyrille's more percussion-oriented or sparer sets – and Ware's tone especially sounds great here, with a full depth, but none of the overblown qualities that sometimes marred his later years. Nick DiGeronimo handles bass – and although we don't really know him well, his timing and tone here also helps give the group some good energy too – focusing Cyrille into much more rhythmic territory than usual. Titles include "5-4-3-2", "Spiegelgasse 14", "My Ship", and "Metamusician's Stomp". CD

Philippe D'Aram/Pierre RaphFascination/Requiem Pour Un Vampire ... CD
Finders Keepers (UK), 1972/1979. New Copy .... $13.99
A wicked double-header – a pair of rare French vampire soundtracks, packaged together in a single CD! First up is Fascination – a totally cool score from Philippe D'Aram – one that's heavy on electronics, amidst the usual horror movie moods – which gives the music a cold, stark feel that's really amazing – incredibly spooky at points, and nice and spacey at others! D'Aram doesn't just use the usual familiar moog and Rhodes elements – and instead seems to be working with early sample-type textures – using blocks of sound in these slow-building ways that are almost an electronic equivalent of a Phantom Of The Opera-type organ – especially at points when dark voices filter in to the mix, alongside acoustic elements on tuned instruments. Titles include "La Louve", "Apparation Du Chateau", "Bizarre Cult 2", "L'Amour Des Deux Filles", "Death Brigitte", and "La Valse Grincante". Next up is Requiem Pour Un Vampire – a Pierre Raph soundtrack for a really moody film – and one that's scored with music that's surprisingly sensitive at times too! There's a mix of dark and sweet here that really creates a great sort of tension – a mix between light acoustic instrumentation and some heavier sounds in the background – and really offbeat styles of tuning, and of putting the sounds together for the record! The music often features little snippets of sound effects – which pop out in a nice sense of surprise – reflecting the interplay of drama and sensuality in the film's images – and as the set moves on, the arrangements get fuller, and darker too. Titles include "Dominique's Organ", "Jade Vampyre", "Crimson Gates", "Steps To Eternal Youth", "Jade Lake", "Crimson Pond", and "Sad Clowns In The Cornfield". CD

Some of the darkest music ever recorded by the quirky German pop group Der Plan – their soundtrack for the 1982 film Die Letzte Rache, recorded in a series of short and quirky little tunes! The sound here is similar to Dar Plan's other albums of the time, but perhaps a bit bleaker at times – with traces of post-industrial instrumentation littered alongside more playful and upbeat numbers. The group's sense of humor is still very firmly in place, but it's also got a lot more bite than usual – as does their overall work with electronics, which seems to have advanced incredibly by this point – able to stretch between the abstractions of Jon Appleton and the directed messages of Bruce Haack. And despite the fact that many of the tunes are extremely short, they're also extremely memorable as well – playful little experiments in soundshapes and tone that have stood the test of time extremely well! Titles include "Oh Oh Oh", "Ich Bin Es", "Zur Alten Dschunke", "Die Unterirdische Fabrik", "Junger Mann", "Fruchte Radio Special", "Oder Nicht", and "Das Ende". 8 bonus tracks on this CD version: "Geloschte Szene", "Miletti 1", "Miletti 2", "Am Strand" and more.

Heavy sounds from this mighty quartet – a lineup that features Peter Brotzmann on tenor, alto clarinet, and tarogato – plus Toshinori Kondo on trumpet and electronics, William Parker on bass, and Hamid Drake on drums! The album spins out in relatively free space – with Drake's drums and Parker's bass propelling the music for most of the moments – and lots of compressed notes from Kondo's trumpet, which also then seem to be processed by his electronics – creating a mix between electric Miles Davis and a Varitone! The set includes the three-part suite "Aoyama Crows" – composed by Brotzmann, but feeling like some moody Japanese mix of fusion and avant from the early 70s. LP, Vinyl record album

The group's got a trans-American vibe – contributions from US musicians like Scotty Hard, Melvin Gibbs, and Rob Mazurek, mixed with percussion from Nana Vasconcelos, and topped with vocals and rhymes from Mike Ladd, Lurdez Da Luz, and R Brandao! The music's got the kind of darkly funky quality in the rhythms that we know from Gibbs' earlier projects – although Melvin is just a guest musician on the set – but there's also some of the textured electronics that Mazurek uses in some of his Sao Paulo Underground material, too – which gives the album a very deep feel, even when the lyrics are more direct.

Not necessarily the true story of house music – but a set that's mighty darn nice – and filled with a range of grooves that will definitely make you a fan of Elbee Bad right from the start! The music here is often way more complex than both standard dance and house – and certainly much more striking than the space where the two would often collide in too-commercial work from the start of the 90s. Instead, Elbee seems to echo some of the more experimental electronics of the German scene while also having an ear for Chicago and Detroit – completely confident in putting together his own version of modern music – yet also in ways that are not nearly as indulgent as the generation to come! The balance is key to the strength of this set – and titles include "Mr Terry Meets Mr Fingers", "I'm So Alone", "This Dream Is Real", "The Music Is Kicking", "S Shuffle", "Just Let Your Body Ride", "Just Don't Stop The Dance", "New Age House", and "I Like To Move (solid mixx)".

A beautifully trippy duo who work here mostly with electronics – but who use the instruments in very organic ways that are almost acoustic! There's an earthy, almost hippieish quality to the sounds on the set – music that belies the pair's placement in the pre-New Age instrumental underground shared by Iasos, Laraaji, and others – but which also comes across here with a unique quality that's very much all their own! The music has a naive, optimistic feel that's very cool – and even when the keyboards step out front a bit more strongly on a few tracks, the energy of the record still has a lot more warmth than the Sky Records scene in Germany. After a smattering of various reissues, this full set finally does the duo justice – bringing together all the best track from their rare album and cassette-only releases – with the kind of notes and details we love from the Finders Keepers label. Titles include "Dawn", "The Dragon's Gate", "Flight Of The Raven", "Voices Of The Sage", "Chasing The Shadowbeast", "Nightsong", and "Valley Of The Birds". CD

There's an earthy, almost hippieish quality to the sounds on the set – music that belies the pair's placement in the pre-New Age instrumental underground shared by Iasos, Laraaji, and others – but which also comes across here with a unique quality that's very much all their own! The music has a naive, optimistic feel that's very cool – and even when the keyboards step out front a bit more strongly on a few tracks, the energy of the record still has a lot more warmth than the Sky Records scene in Germany. After a smattering of various reissues, this full set finally does the duo justice – bringing together all the best track from their rare album and cassette-only releases – with the kind of notes and details we love from the Finders Keepers label. Titles include "Dawn", "The Dragon's Gate", "Flight Of The Raven", "Voices Of The Sage", "Chasing The Shadowbeast", "Nightsong", and "Valley Of The Birds". LP, Vinyl record album

Drag City, 2013. New Copy .... $8.99
Droning soundscapes with dreamy atmosphere and ominous twists and turns from Ensemble Pearl! The ensemble is an international one – featuring Sunn O)))'s Stephen O'Malley, plus Atsuo from Boris, Boris-affiliate Michio Kurihara, William Herzog and guests – and their eponymous record for Drag City is one of cooler avant instrumental projects on DC in recent memory. It apparently came together from material recorded for a theater project a couple years earlier – and it has a bit of tripped out, spooky soundtrack-y feel to show for it – but it stands really strongly as a headphones experience all its own! Includes "Ghost Parade", "Painting On A Corpse", "Wray", "Island Epiphany", "Giant" and "Sexy Angle". CD

A nice set of groovy, languorous instrumentals from Fat Jon! Fat Jon is often named as a hip hop instrumentalist on par with and in the experimentalist area of DJ Shadow, RJD2, Prefuse 73 and others – which is in part true, but Jon has more direct influence from astral 70s sounds and the Detroit school of soulful electronics. This moody Japanese release from '04 is surprisingly strong given it's low profile – but no less appealing than much of FJ's catalog! Tracks include "Cold Memory", "Fly Away", "Risk It All", "Darkness", "All In Your Mind", "Your Purpose", "Romantic Misery" and more! CD

New Maynard FergusonPrimal Scream ... LP
Columbia, 1976. Very Good .... $3.99
One of the funkiest records ever from Maynard Ferguson – the climax of a great run of bigger group grooves in the 70s! The record's a tight batch of groovers, with production and keyboards by Bob James – and the whole thing's a mixture of big band funk and electronics that's simply out of this world! Side one kicks off with two massive numbers – the Arp-heavy "Cheshire Cat Walk", and the Kool & The Gang-ish "Primal Scream" – and both cuts are quite long, with loads of cool instrumental effects. Side two is a bit softer, but it does include a long keyboard groover called "Swamp". LP, Vinyl record album

A cool combo with lots of trombone from Conrad Bauer – blowing beautifully here over well-spun lines from the other members of the quartet! There's a fluid vibe to the record that's very fresh – not really some of the more familiar modal or fusion styles you'd know from the German scene of the time – nor some of the more offbeat work you might also hear from Bauer – and at times, there's even a funky feel to the record, although not in ways we'd conventionally use here in the US! The whole thing's plenty great – full of fresh twists and turns, and great discoveries throughout – with work from Conrad Bauer on trombone, Hannes Zerbe on piano, Christoph Niemann on bass, and Peter Groning on drums.

Nico Fidenco2 + 5 Missione Hydra ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1967. New Copy .... $18.99
One of the wildest soundtracks we've ever heard from Nico Fidenco – penned for a cool Italian sci-fi film of the late 60s! Nico's probably best known for his erotic work of the 70s, but this sweet 60s set is possibly even cooler – a wonderful mix of playful styles and offbeat production modes – every bit the best mod, bossa, space party you'd hear in similar soundtracks from Peter Thomas! As with Thomas' space work, Fidenco's takes lots of 60s elements – bossa rhythms, jazzy instrumentation, and mod guitar – and brings them together with bits of electronics and cool studio techniques that really help abstract some of the sounds, while still keeping the best warmer elements at the core. The sound here is great – really beautifully remastered – and the set features 26 groovy tittles that include "Pericolo", "Ultraspazio", "Hydra Shake", "Space Bossa", "Swing A Go Go", "Segnali", "Galassia Lontana", "Momento Nostalgico", "Bellezza Aliena", and "Lotta".

New Nico FidencoZombi Holocaust ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1980. New Copy .... $18.99
One of the grooviest zombie soundtracks you'll ever hope to own – courtesy of Italian sex maestro Nico Fidenco! Nico scored plenty of previous sex romps before this film, and really brings that heritage into play – as he mixes sweet keyboards and weird electronics with some moodier elements designed to invoke the living dead – who then seem encouraged to dance by some of the funkier moments in the set! The whole thing's way different than the usual Italian horror score of the time – and is much closer to some of Fidenco's groovier material of the 70s – including some of the more exotic sex scores as well, given the use of percussion on some key tracks. Titles include "From The Beyond", "Fascinating Horror", "Make Love On The Wing", "Living In The Past", and "Dive Into The Past". CD

Jazzpuu (Finland), 1975/2006. New Copy (pic cover, reissue).... $4.99
A spacey bit of 70s jazz gets some great mixing here from Finnish studio maestro Didier – and the result is a tune that's almost as dark as some of his original work under the Didier's Sound Spectrum banner! "Ufology" begins with lots of weird analogue electronics – clearly enough to make you think you're having a Close Encounter – but then a really hard drum break comes into the mix, muted slightly at the bottom, and larger jazz orchestrations build over the top! The whole thing sounds like a great funky electronic 70s soundtrack number – and it's presented with some great bonus beats on the flip. Single also includes the track "No Comments" – another great tune from the 70s, done here with a really funky mix of electric rhythms and big band soloing! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Organ and keyboards are often produced and played with lots of weird tones – on short tracks that also mix conventional orchestrations with very offbeat elements from tapes, percussion, and sound effects – sometimes electronicized at a level that really abstracts them past their original sources! The approach is sometimes striking, sometimes subtle, but always powerful throughout – with this dark beauty that really holds us rapt over the course of the film score's twenty short titles – including "Message From Marek", "Swan Steps", "Red Ghost", "Quinine", "Viktoria's Darkest Moment", "Lost In The Tavern", "Blood Red Roses", and "The Cards".

Morgiana is filled with amazing music from composer Lubos Fiser – delivered with sounds and styles that go way beyond conventional instrumentation, to make the record one of Fiser's most striking releases ever! Organ and keyboards are often produced and played with lots of weird tones – on short tracks that also mix conventional orchestrations with very offbeat elements from tapes, percussion, and sound effects – sometimes electronicized at a level that really abstracts them past their original sources!

The Cremator is filled with really dark sounds from Zdenk Liska – eerie wordless vocals, dark string passages, and other spooky elements – all served up on short tracks that work together almost like some haunted elegy in music – stepping gently from verse to verse with a new sense of exposition at each turn! The approach is very striking – one of the more powerful moments of Czech film music from this amazing time – and every aspect of the instrumentation seems to take on a new sort of creepy feel in the setting. Titles include "This Charming Lady", "Potola Tibet", "Merciful Nature", "Poor Miss Carska", "Vision Of The Temple", "Lakme's Cremation", "Casino On Rose Street", and "Mr Dvorak & The Timetable Of Death".

A new wave crossover classic from The Flying Lizards – one of the quirkiest groups of their era! The group were European, but have a sound that resonates strongly with the most playful post-disco work of the New York scene of the time, particularly the acts on Ze Records – a groove that mixes equal part punky and clubby rhythms, often topped with lyrics that are cold, but clever, done in the same ironic arty style of Cristina, or Devo. This album's the group's standout opus – and features their classic covers of "Summertime Blues" and "Money" – as well as originals "The Flood", "TV", "The Window", and "Russia".

Hi Note, indeed! Gerardo Frisina's latest is awe-inspiring – a completely seamless blend of Italian and Latin jazz, bossa rhythms and percussion, and some of the most tasteful and naturally blended electronic elements you could ever expect to hear on an album so steeped in a genuine affinity for live jazz instrumentation! If memory serves, earlier Frisina recordings relied a bit more on the production side of the coin, but this one's so strong on great instrumentation we're rendered pretty close to speechless. Lots of great horn arrangements, rolling bass lines and piano, sublime vibes and driving drums and percussion. Totally sweet throughout – this is way up there with the best dancefloor jazz Schema's ever released! 12 tracks: "Inviolatin", "Joyas", "Bluesanova", "Intenso", "Beyond The Moon", "Saeta '03", "Cubana", "Ombroso", "Zambele", "Sophisticated Samba" and more.

The Zombi grooves are wildly unpredictable – from neo Carribbean inflections, to electronics reminiscent of John Carpenter, to African percussion. Wild stuff for a movie about Zombie carnage – and yes, that's the movie with the zombie-shark faceoff! Un Gatto Nel Cervello finds Frizzi working in a more classically soundtracky style – but it's done on synthesizers, which gives it seedy undercurrent!

A very cool sci fi soundtrack from Marcello Giombini – as sexy as the image on the cover might imply, but also pretty darn electric and spacey as well! The album echoes some of Giombini's earlier electronic sound library material – and is often spare, with heavy use of keyboards – in ways that are more like late 60s sci fi scoring than some of the more disco keyboards you'd hear in other space soundtracks from the time! The spareness really works well, and creates an evocative mood on both the mellower tracks and some of the more action-oriented ones – which even get slightly funky at points. CD features 16 tracks from the film – all of them pretty great! CD

Dot/Intrada, 1968. New Copy .... $19.99
A real rarity from Jerry Goldsmith – groovy tunes penned for a late 60s film about an Oxford professor who's also a spy for the British Secret Service! Goldmith's music is a bit less serious than usual at points – still scored with the deep care and sensitivity we've come to love in Jerry's soundtracks, but peppered with a few of the more upbeat, mod-styled cuts you'd expect in a 60s spy comedy! Instrumentation varies from full orchestral to smaller combo – romping rhythms and a bit of guitar on some of the groovy numbers, mixed with softer strings on the more serious tunes. There's a great vocal number called "You Gotta Let Me Go" – and other tracks include "The Decoders", "Checkmate", "Sebastian", "First Day At Work", "Night Scene", "The Trip", and "Sputnik Code" – plus two versions of "Comes The Night", one sung by Anita Harris, the other by Jimmy Hassell. This great new CD version features wonderful mastering, full notes, 32 tracks from the album and film soundtrack – and 12 more bonus tracks by Tristram Cary – much more abstract electronic tunes done as codes for one of the full tracks on the album!

One of Barry Gray's greatest moments – the ultra groovy soundtrack for Space 1999, the short-lived but well-remembered mainstream sci-fi show from the 70s! The title theme has a nice bit of a dancefloor bounce to it – pre-guessing the disco-copy mode that other space soundtracks were facing in the 70s by turning out its own original hit – and other tunes in the set follow a sometimes similar mode that makes the record far funkier than you'd guess for a soundtrack of this type! Some tracks are certainly more straightforward and dramatic, but there's plenty here in that funky Brit Easy mode of the mid 70s – lots of compressed instrumentation and some slight electronic touches – and often rhythms that are a lot harder than you'd expect! Highlights include "Breakaway", "Death's Other Dominion", "Black Sun", and a reprise of the theme. LP, Vinyl record album

New Mats GustafssonTorturing The Saxophone ... CD
Corbett vs. Dempsey, 2014. New Copy .... $13.99 14.99
Mats Gustafsson tortures the saxophone – but tortures it beautifully, too – in this wonderful set of solo tracks that mix tenor and live electronics, baritone and music box, and some solo baritone moments too! The title's a reference to a hilarious letter sent to Mats by Robert Crumb – who also did the lettering on the front – reproduced inside, in which Crumb says that he just really doesn't get this kind of music, or understand why anyone would want to listen to it too! Yet there's a beauty and fragility to the record that honestly make it one of Gustafsson's most compelling albums ever – especially the leadoff mix of tenor and electronics, laid out over five famous Duke Ellington numbers – all completely transformed by the process. Ellington titles include "Come Sunday", "In A Sentimental Mood", "I Never Felt This Way Before", and "Blue Goose" – and the set also features versions of the Ayler classics "Angels/Spirits" and "Ghosts" – and a 22 minute take on Lars Gullin's "Danny's Dream".

Mats Gustafsson & Thurston MooreVi Ar Alla Guds Slavar (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
OTOroku (UK), 2012. New Copy .... $26.99
Two important noisemakers at work together in a blistering set of long improvisation – and a record that may well lean more towards the Thurston Moore side of the spectrum than the usual sounds we hear from Mats Gustafsson! The players have worked together before, but this time around there's a really strong match – a level at which each is pushing the other to really let loose – as Moore's guitar work sets fire to electronics from Gustafsson, which then abstracts the noise even more – to a point when even the soprano sax lines seem to take on some very offbeat tones! The album's one that would have been a happy inclusion on the early Blast First lineup – proof that Thurston's still got some very sharp chops. LP, Vinyl record album
