4.60 10

Weird and wild sounds from this early 80s French group – a set of tracks that supposedly each represents a different hallucination by a 6 year old girl! Given the sound of some of these cuts, we'd be more than inclined to agree with that claim – as most of the music is pretty darn trippy, often instrumental, and served up in a blend of heavy keyboards and spacey guitars – produced with a finish that's more mid 70s Germany than the early 80s recording date of the album – more proggish than post-punk, if you know what we mean! Titles include "Theme De La Drogue", "Theme Du Genie", "Proper's Reggae", "Theme De La Bagarre", "Flashes", "Depart Du Genie", and "Christelle". (Limited edition of 250 copies – heavy vinyl and cover, with insert too.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Light In The Attic, 1986. New Copy 2 LP Gatefold (reissue)
Blazing early-to-mid 80s sounds from TX psych forebear and rock savant Roky Erickson – one of the cleanest produced records in his canon – and definitely one of the greatest of his later solo efforts! Similar to the The Evil One record, it's got some fairly straight forward and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Light In The Attic, 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy Gatefold
The excellent, underappreciated mid 80s compilation of rare and unreleased Roky Erickson live recordings and studio material – recorded from the mid 70s to early 80s – with his backing bands The Explosives, The Aliens and Blieb Alien, plus a couple of sparely haunting beauties backed by ...

Drag City, 1975. New Copy
A pre-punk bit of charged, hard grooving Motor City rock from Death – a lost record that takes a tightly coiled, blazing approach to their influences of garage rock and psychedelia – and a record that's all the better in that it was recorded way back in 1975! To put it bluntly, music ... LP, Vinyl record album
Brain Pulse Music
Drag City, 2012. New Copy
Minimalist drone from Masaki Batoh of Ghost – sparely beautiful and somewhat ominous soundscapes from ever-creative experimenter – and the way he created these sounds is kinda mindblowing! Brain Pulse Music is literally what Masaki Batoh has here. Essentially, he dreamed up a machine ... LP, Vinyl record album
Drag City, 2013. New Copy
Spare solo sounds from Al Cisneros – known for his work in the group's Sleep and Om, but working here in some really cool stretched-out, drone-based guitar territory! Both sides are very similar, and very cyclical – a slight spooky undercurrent, almost like a moodier moment in an 80s ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dunhill/Sundazed, 1966. New Copy (reissue)
A real moment of magic from the LA scene of the mid 60s – and a record that was seminal in helping the transition from early 60s folk pop to the much headier sounds of the latter part of the decade! The quartet had roots in other work, but really come together here as something special ... LP, Vinyl record album
