Franco BattiatoClic ... CD
BMG (Italy), 1974. New Copy ... $9.99
Short works for voice and electronics – courtesy of Italian minimalist Franco Battiato! The greatest experimentalist is working here on piano, organ, metal, crystals, and vocals – with occasional help from other players – in a mode that reminds us of some of Brian Eno's more ... read more CD

Franco BattiatoFetus (Italian pressing) ... CD
BMG (Italy), 1972. New Copy ... $9.99
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

Franco BattiatoL'Egitto Prima Delle Sabbie ... CD
BMG (Italy), 1978. New Copy ... $9.99
One of the last great albums recorded by Italian minimalist Franco Battiato before backsliding on his genius – and turning into a more conventional rock star! That change in his career would come later – but here, Battiato is still a firmly committed modernist – as important to ... read more CD

Franco BattiatoPollution ... CD
BMG (Italy), 1973. New Copy ... $9.99
A really full-on early set from Franco Battiato – a set that's maybe halfway between some of his more avant compositions and some of the modes of the Italian prog scene at the time! The album's a concept one, based on the growing pollution of the planet – in a mode that's maybe similar ... read more CD

Franco BattiatoSulle Corde Di Aries ... CD
BMG (Italy), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $9.99
A key turning point in the career of Italian modernist Franco Battiato – as he leaves behind the straighter progressive format of his first two albums, and moves into a mode that's much more experimental! The album features four long compositions – all of which show Battiato ... 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

Eugene ChadbourneThere'll Be No Tears Tonight ... CD
Parachute/Corbett vs. Dempsey, 1980. New Copy Gatefold ... $12.99
One of the most compelling albums ever recorded by guitarist Eugene Chadbourne – a set billed as "free improvised country and western bebop" – and which features Chadbourne serving up these wild variations on tunes by Carl Perkins, Roger Miller, David Allen Coe, Bobby Bare, ... 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! This set really has ... read more CD

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

Gemelli (Italy), 1971. New Copy ... $19.99
pierAn amazing lost album from the legendary Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza – a sextet of Italian modernists that included Ennio Morricone! The album may well be the group's grooviest ever – recorded right after their legendary Feed-back set, and done with a similar blend of ... read more CD

Deutsche Grammophon (Germany), 2016. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99

Terri Kapsalis & John CorbettDead Level ... CD
Corbett vs. Dempsey, 2000. New Copy ... $11.99
An extended "radio noir" by the team of John Corbett and Terri Kapsalis – one that pays tribute to the glory days of the hardboiled detective through an array of music, sounds, and readings!

✨✧ Eero KoivistoinenMuusa Ja Ruusa ... CD
Svart (Finland), 1971. New Copy ... $12.99
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 ... (Jazz, Out Sound) 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

Sono Luminus, 2016. New Copy 2CDs ... $9.99 24.99
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 cover and title might seem a bit gimmicky, but Spektral Quartet are far from that ... (Classical, Out Sound) read more CD
