Joseph ByrdYankee Transcendoodle ... LP
Takoma, 1976. Very Good+ ... $6.99
As the notes say, "this album is a series of aural and spatial fantasies evoking the spirit of American patriotic music" – and the whole thing's recorded on electronic keyboards. Given that this one's on Takoma, you can guess the kind of hippy-dippy folksist influence it might have, which gives the electronic music tracks an even weirder edge. Maybe this is the kind of thing that Ives might have recorded, had he been alive in the 60's. With work by Byard himself, plus Sousa, Cohan, and others. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeL'Istruttoria E'Chiusa – Dimentichi ... LP
Contempo (Italy), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Various1979 Il Concerto – Omaggio A Demetrio Stratos ... CD
Cramps (Italy), 1979. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A huge gathering of musicians and music lovers – all brought together in memory of singer Demetrio Stratos, who passed away unexpectedly in 1979! The stylistic range is as huge as the audience – who appear to number in the tens of thousands in the photo on the back cover – and the set mixes some of the proggish and experimental contemporaries of Stratos with other groups who show just how much creativity was taking place in Italy at the time – bits of jazz, some proto-punk, and lots more – on titles that include "Danzanello" by Area, "Basta Basta" by Kaos Rock, "Nedro Sul Bianco" by Adriano Bassi, "Coesione" by Venegoni & Co, "Il Funerale" by Angelo Branduardi, "Bomba O Non Bomba" by Antonello Venditti, "Cardini Solfeggio Parlante" by Giancarlo Cardini, and "Figlia" by Roberto Vecchioni.

✨✧ Susa VaslevMusic From Enchanted Forest (blue vinyl pressing) ... LP
Wyrd War, 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Totally weird sounds from a totally weird place – Oregon's Enchanted Forest sanctuary – a playful park with a look and feel that's right out of fantasy books and fairy tales! The music here definitely has a sound to match – almost like videogame themes that you'd hear if the character was moving through some shinto-inspired landscape – with a weird way of referencing elemental forces with electronic instrumentation, but all at a level that's also got this simple, child-like innocence. The whole record really fits the spirit of the cover – and titles include "Log Flume", "Challenge Of Mondor", "Bones & Slim", "Castle Flair", "Mine Music", "Willamette Overture", and "Fantasy Fountains".

✨✧ VariousPictures Of Sound – One Thousand Years Of Educed Audio – 980 to 1980 ... CD
Dust To Digital, 2012. New Copy CD & Book ... Out Of Stock
A massive book, with some mighty weird sounds – and one of the most unique musical projects we've ever stocked! The book features 144 pages that document a millenium's worth of attempts to visualize sound – images that stretch back to the 10th century, and offer up a variety of visual expressions of sonic energy – which are then interpreted in new recordings by author Patrick Feaster! Most of the music has an electro/acoustic sort of approach – abstract, yet oddly tuneful at times too – and with the feeling of some deep dark dig into phonographic vaults buried under the sands of time – recordings from years when there was no recording technology at all, brought to light and packaged int his massive book filled with detailed notes and lots of cool images!
