Karel AppelMusique Barbare ... CD
Sub Rosa (Belgium), 1963. New Copy ... $15.99
The mad look of artist Karel Appel on the cover is a very fitting image for this set – as the music moves around in so many insane ways – often with the kind of dynamic, explosive vibe of Appel's famous paintings! We're tempted to call the set an audio version of abstract expressionism ... read more CD

Harry BertoiaComplete Sonambient Collection (11CD set) ... CD
Sonambient/Important Records, 1970s. New Copy 11 CDs ... $89.99
Mindblowing music from Harry Bertoia – a sculptor, but one who was equally concerned with sound as he was with material structures! Most of Bertoia's objects were designed to be as musical as they were structural – often created of metal, and designed to create sound – either ... read more CD

Joanna BroukHearing Music ... CD
Numero, Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $13.99 17.98
Beautiful sounds from Joanna Brouk – an artist who was sometimes lost amidst the new age scene of the 80s, but one who's got a much deeper, more intellectual approach overall! True, Brouk's music does have a certain meditative spirit – but she also was a student of Terry Riley and ... read more CD

Gavin BryarsJesus' Blood Never Failed Me Yet ... CD
Obscure/GB, 1975. New Copy ... $15.99 17.99
One of the greatest moments ever from Gavin Bryars – and a record that's maybe one of his warmest, and most compelling too! The core of "Jesus' Blood Never Failed Me Yet" is a recording of a tramp singing the refrain in a raspy, wobbly voice – which is then looped, and given ... read more CD

Kent CarterOratorios & Songs ... CD
Emanem (UK), 2010. New Copy ... $16.99 19.98
A really different side of the deep talents of bassist Kent Carter – an artist you might know best for his improvised work with Steve Lacy and other members of the European free jazz scene – working here in a much more compositional mode! Music is by a quartet that features Carter on ... (Jazz, Out Sound) read more CD

Superior Viaduct, 1973. New Copy ... $14.99
The first-ever full album of music from Tony Conrad – issued in the early 70s after years of Conrad's secret input to the global avant garde – including some key years in New York, where he influenced John Cale and a generation of others who rose to greater fame!

dCprGFranz Kafka's South America (CD & DVD) ... CD
Voodoo/Sony (Japan), 2015. New Copy CD & DVD ... $19.99
A record that's every bit as compelling as its title – an unusual hybrid of jazz elements, electronics, and some offbeat production – all served up in a blend that reminds us of some of the most adventurous work from the late 80s New York scene – like some of the early groups who ...

From ScratchFive Rhythm Works ... CD
EM (Japan), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $23.99
Fantastic percussion pieces from this ultra-cool New Zealand ensemble of the 70s – a group who take their name and inspiration from the Scratch Orchestra of Cornelius Cardew – but who also work in a more intimate setting, with lots of instruments of their own creation – with a ... read more CD

Deutsche Grammophon (Germany), 2016. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
One of the most beautiful projects we've ever heard from pianist Helen Grimaud – and one of the most personal, too – a recording that exlores themes of music and nature in a time when our environment is facing a great future crisis – all handled by Grimaud without any sense of ...

Beat (Italy), 1973. New Copy ... $18.99
A rare one from Italian experimental pioneers Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza – led by Franco Evangelisti and featuring the great Ennio Morricone on trumpet, who might feel a little bit liberated from the conventions of film soundtrack compositions in this setting, and is making ... read more CD

Egisto MacchiBiologia Animale Et Vegetale (2CD box) ... CD
Cinedelic (Italy), 1976. New Copy 2CD ... $24.99
Not the fauna and flora you might expect from the title – and instead, a collection that's every bit as heady as some of Egisto Macchi's other sound library work from the time – very offbeat, very unusual, and pretty downright spooky! The sounds here are almost more what you'd expect ... (Sound Library, Out Sound) read more CD

Egisto MacchiI Futuribili ... CD
Gemelli/Cometa (Italy), 1972. New Copy ... $19.99
Proof that the Italian sound library scene had way more to offer than just background music – a depth of amazing styles that more than live up to the legendary composers who worked in its service! This album is key illustration of that fact – hardly what you'd expect from a canned ... (Sound Library, Out Sound) read more CD

A wonderful record from this important string quartet – a group who strike a fine balance between being playful and playing powerfully, and who have a really tremendous ear for unusual repertoire too!

Matsuo OhnoAstro Boy – Roots Of Electronic Sound ... CD
JVC (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $26.99
A very weird and wild little record from Matsuo Ohno – the man who created all those cool electronic effects for the early Astro Boy cartoons! The album's comprised of sounds from those years, but really comes across more as some sort of odd, experimental collage – with short ... (Sound Library, Out Sound) read more CD

A completely lost side of the legendary German group Popol Vuh – served up here in a heavy package that includes a never-issued soundtrack, obscure piano recordings, and even a DVD!

Cedille, 2016. New Copy ... $9.99 16.99
A tremendous reading of the music of Steve Reich – served up in a set of minimalist compositions with a very percussive vibe – and a record of quality that may well match Reich's classic recordings of Drumming or Six Marimbas! Chicago's Third Coast Percussion Ensemble are tremendous ... read more CD
