Possibly the best album to date from Jun Miyake – a set that's every bit as enigmatic as his previous work, but somehow even better overall! There's a wonderfully visual sense to most of the songs here – almost little audio pictures in sound – put together with unusual instrumentation, soundtrack-like scoring, and some fragile vocals – all in a way that reminds us a bit of the late 70s/early 80s work of Pierre Barouh. Arto Lindsay sings on some tracks, and there's some elements here that definitely remind us of his music too – and other guests include Vinicius Cantuaria, Lisa Papineau, and Arthur H. Titles include "Alviverde", "O Fim", "The Here & After", "Turn Back", "Le Voyageur Solitaire", and "Easturn".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

On My Way
BBE (UK), 2013. New Copy
The first full album we've ever heard from Kon – and a really soulful set that follows strongly off his famous mixtapes and compilations with Amir! As on those gems, there's a very classic sound going on here – a strong love of the best moments of 70s soul, funk, and club – ... CD
Sonic Codex
Universal (Norway), 2007. New Copy
Extremely haunting work from Eivind Aarset – a record that continues the experiments of his previous albums on the Jazzland label, but which also comes across a bit more tunefully too! Eivind's still working with a range of guitars, electronics, percussion, and programming – but there's ... CD

Jazzland (Norway), 2007. New Copy
A wealth of great keyboard work from Bugge Wessltoft – a beautiful little record with a tremendous amount of sensitivity – hardly what we might have expected from his work of a few years before! The album shows Bugge's full evolution from a dancefloor-oriented artist to a more serious ... CD
Avalanche
Epic, 2013. New Copy
Quadron steps up the bigs with Avalanche – an impeccable second album and first to be co-released Epic Records – and as much as we appreciated their earlier album on Plug Research, this really is an epic-level creative leap forward for the duo! They're still working mix of electro and ... CD
HBD, 2013. New Copy 2CD
Foreign Exchange and friends get some remix love! As impressive and eclectic as Nicolay and Phonte are as the flagship FE duo – and given the depth of their excellent +FE Music catalog – you probably expected them to attract the crème of the crop of cosmic soul remixers, and that ... CD
Epic/Get On Down, 1971. New Copy
A landmark album in a landmark package – a set that takes this gem from Sly & The Family Stone, presses it up on a special hi-fidelity gold CD, then cradles the whole thing in special box with a heavy hardcover book with lots of new notes – and a fabric American flag sewn right onto ... CD
Leonor
GDM (Italy), 1975. New Copy
A surprisingly warm soundtrack from Ennio Morricone – especially considering it was penned for a creepy film about medieval vampirism! The music has a bit of a period feel – mostly through some use of light woodwind or lute-like stringed instrumentation at points – but the ... CD
No Need For Alarm
Elektra/Traffic, 1993. New Copy
The incredible follow-up to I Wish My Brother George Was Here – and a record that was initally underappreciated, mostly because it was such a radical departure from the George – but it's one that we loved from day one and we're thrilled is getting some love all these years later! ... CD
