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

ClusterSowiesoso ... CD
Sky/Bureau B (Germany), 1976. New Copy ... $14.99
A key chapter in the career of the legendary Cluster – one that has the German duo of Hans-Joachim Rodelius and Dieter Moebius stepping back from their fuller sound of records past – hitting a spare, spacious, lightly electronic sound that would have a huge impact on modern music for ...

Cluster & EnoCluster & Eno ... CD
Sky/Bureau B (Germany), 1977. New Copy ... $14.99
A key meeting between 2 important forces in electronic music in the 70s – the increasingly-experimental Brian Eno and the Cluster team of Dieter Moebius and Hans-Joachim Roedelius! Unlike the trio's other album, this one's an all-instrumental affair – one that takes the atmospherics of ... (Rock, Out Sound) read more CD

dCprGFranz Kafka's South America (CD & DVD) ... CD
Voodoo/Sony (Japan), 2015. New Copy CD & DVD ... $36.99
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 ...

Jordan De La SierraGymnosphere – Song Of The Rose ... CD
Unity/Numero, 1978. New Copy 2CD ... $13.99 18.98
Spacey piano work from Jordan De La Sierra – material that's clearly informed by the 60s experiments of La Monte Young and Terry Riley, but which also has a more open, spiritual quality too! The piano has a nice sense of tuning – one that's almost watery at points – and Jordan's ... read more CD

Brian Eno/Moebius/RoedeliusAfter The Heat ... CD
Sky/Bureau B (Germany), 1978. New Copy ... $14.99
Probably the best of the Brian Eno/Cluster collaborations – and a damn great record that's probably one of Eno's last great efforts of the 70s! The record has a beautifully spacey sound, with spare analog electronics that have a perfect German 70's feel – flowing out with an Eno-tuned ... (Rock, Out Sound) read more CD

Levon Eskenian/Gurdjieff EnsembleKomitas ... CD
ECM (Germany), 2015. New Copy ... $11.99 18.98
A wonderful project from the Gurdjieff Ensemble – a group who initially formed to play the music of the composer of the same name, but who here take on the compositions of Komitas – an Armenian scholar from the same generation, and one whose sounds have an even more other-worldly vibe! ...

✨✧ Jean-Philippe GoudeDrones (plus bonus track) ... CD
Polydor/Lion, 1979. New Copy ... $8.99
More than simple Drones from French experimental composer Jean-Philippe Gourde – it's an outwardly melodic set of music inspired by classical music and rock music – and fuses the 2 with synths and acoustic instrumentation! It's got a futuristic vibe on one level, but melodies and ... read more CD

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 ...

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!

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!

The "Serge" here isn't Serge Gainsbourg – but a very weird, very wild Serge synthesizer – played by Bob Ostertag in a series of vintage performances! Some tracks have Bob mixing his electronics with radio, or cassette tape, or even a contact mic – and the music is often ... read more CD
