2062, 2017. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
Fantastic sounds from William Basinksi – an artist with an approach that's like nobody else we can think of, and which makes these two tracks sound very much in keeping with his famous Disintegration Loops project!

Franco BattiatoFetus (Italian pressing) ... CD
BMG (Italy), 1972. New Copy ... $5.99
One of the most bizarre early works by Italian composer Franco Battiato – a record with a fetus on the cover, an inside image of his paper-mache mother, with a walk-in birth canal, and a subtitle that reads "return to the new world"! The musical style mixes Battiato's mid 70s ... read more CD

Haunting fragmented soundscapes by one of Italy's most compelling modern composers – the great Franco Battiato!

Limelight/Fifth Dimension (Germany), 1962. New Copy ... $14.99
Groundbreaking analogue electronics from the Dutch team of Tom Dissevelt and Kid Baltan – two musicians who can be as playful as the tem of Perry & Kingsley, but also hit some of the darker modes of the academic circuit as well! The title is very well-put – as the record has a vibe ... read more CD

Julius EastmanFemenine ... CD
Frozen Reeds, 1974. New Copy ... $18.99
A fantastic piece of minimalist magic from Julius Eastman – a lesser-known composer of the 70s, but one we'd rank right up there with Steve Reich, given the beauty of this work! The CD features one long piece – "Femenine" – which builds slowly out of small passages of ... read more CD

✨✧ John EllisEvolution – Seeds & Streams ... CD
Gondwana (Japan), 2016. New Copy ... $13.99
The most beautiful album we've heard so far from keyboardist John Ellis – a set issued by the Gondwana label of trumpeter Matthew Halsall, and a set that's every bit as spiritual as his work too! There's maybe a bit more of an overall structure to the record – which partially feels ... (Jazz, Out Sound) read more CD

Deutsche Grammophon, 2017. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99

Manuel GottschingE2 E4 ... CD
Racket/MG Art (Germany), 1981. New Copy ... $16.99
Some of the most beautiful sounds ever crafted from Manuel Gottsching – work that's a lot more tuneful and fluid than some of his material with Ash Ra Tempel – and which maybe has more of an 80s vibe overall!
