Ennio MorriconeL'Istruttoria E'Chiusa – Dimentichi ... LP
Contempo (Italy), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99
One of the darkest, moodiest soundtracks we've ever heard from Ennio Morricone – even in comparison to some of his atonal horror work of the 70s! The vibe here is almost 20th Century avant chamber – a bit like work from Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova, but even more experimental – as odd bits of sound samples are filtered through these dark sonic textures, string parts, and electronics – all with a style that's very musique concrete overall! Tracks are much longer than usual for a soundtrack too – and the record has an experimental greatness that really stands apart from the film. Titles include "Disordini", "Ordini", "Ergastolo", and "Memento". (Soundtracks, Out Sound) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Eivind Aarset/TortusaI Know This Place – The Eivind Aarset Collages ... CD
Jazzland (Norway), 2016. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An unusual collaboration between avant musician Eivind Aarset and ambient soundsmith Tortusa (aka John Derek Bishop) – a set that has Tortusa creating whole new sound collages from previous recordings by Aarset, in ways that really take the music to very abstract, offbeat territory – some of those earlier, more electronic and soundscape-oriented styles that we first heard from Norway's Jazzland label! The dark tones and currents of Eivind's inspiration are still firmly in place – and Aarset also plays a bit of new guitar on the record – but the clear vision here is Tortusa's, who finds new ways to open up hidden aspects of these sounds. Titles include "This Again", "I Know This Place", "Take It From Here", "There's So Much Static", "Selective Hindsight", and "Maybe You Still Do". (Jazz, Out Sound) CD

✨✧ Eero KoivistoinenMuusa Ja Ruusa ... CD
Svart (Finland), 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the most unusual albums we've ever heard from Finnish reed legend Eero Koivistoinen – a set of music composed for children – but with a wild sound that must have sent more than a few kids running from the room back in the 70s! Koivistoisen's reeds are only part of the sound here – as there's larger orchestrations from the UMO Jazz Orchestra, some electronics from the University Of Helsinki music studio, and even lots of weird sound effects and animal noises – which only seem to make the whole thing sound even more unsettling! There's a bit of voice at points – the music was based around the poetry of Kirsi Kunnas – but most of the sounds are instrumental, and only seem to get weirder and wilder as the album moves on. Titles include "Fanfaari Kinkulle", "Pikku Paimen", "Sammakkokeitto", "Jussin Talo", "Ville Ja Valle", and "Herra Pii Poo". (Jazz, Out Sound) CD

VariousMonster Skies – Compiled By Andy Votel & James Pianta ... LP
Roundtable/Finders Keepers (UK), 1960s/1970s/1980s. New Copy ... $11.99 22.99
An amazing collaboration between the folks at Dual Planet and Finders Keepers – and a set that digs even deeper than any of the previous reissues from both labels! The music is from a range of global sources – some sound library, some private press, some jazz, and some electronic – all with a very offbeat, dark sort of edge – tuneful, but moody at the same time – with lots of rare 60s and 70s cuts that brilliantly lead up to the 80s electronic numbers that cap off the whole thing. If you only think the world of dark noise comes from folks like Cabaret Voltaire or Throbbing Gristle, you'll find that there's plenty here to discover – in plenty of styles too. Titles include "Abstractum" by Val Stephen, "Bizarre Cult 2" by Philippe D'Aram, "Mind Script Vacation Permit 35-17" by Clone, "Shrinking Particles" by Susanne Ciani, "Mutazione" by Teisco, "Mosnter Planet (Andy Votel edit)" by Steve Maxwell Von braund, "Studie 2" by Lucien Goethals, and "Muzak To Moralise By" by Ian MacFarlane.
