Serge BlennerLa Vogue ... CD
Sky/Bureau B (Germany), 1980. New Copy ... $16.99
A really cool keyboard set from Serge Blenner – issued during the glory days of the German Sky Records label, but with a vibe that's a bit different than most of their other releases! Blenner works on an assortment of keyboard and electronic sources – but with a sound that's maybe more Sheffield than Hamburg, especially as there's some great use of darkness and distortion in the mix – less clean electronics than some of his Sky contemporaries, which creates a very cool, moody sound throughout! The album has eight instrumental tracks – each a numbered "Phrase" by Serge. CD
Also available La Vogue ... LP 22.99

Serge BlennerMagazin Frivole ... CD
Sky/Bureau B (Germany), 1981. New Copy ... $16.99
Overlooked electronic genius from Serge Blenner – an artist whose name and title might sound a bit French, but who recorded this set in the Hamburg underground at the start of the 80s! The work here is a nice bridge between earlier Sky Records modes and the rising tide of the German new wave – especially those corners of that scene that have gotten a lot of attention in the newly-titled cold wave generation of the time! The tunes are all instrumental, and nice and spare – with maybe elements that hearken back to the analogue electronics of very early Human League and Cabaret Voltaire – tuneful and song-based, but still really moody and dark too. Titles include "Derivatif", "Magazin Frivole", "Envoutement", "A L'Ouest", and "Polyphase". CD

Brian Eno/Moebius/RoedeliusAfter The Heat ... LP
Sky/Bureau B (Germany), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
Probably the best of the 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 sense of grace, and made even better by lyrics from Brian on a few of the album's best tracks! The singing style here is in that same beautiful deadpan machine-like mode used on Another Green World – and those tracks are easily up there with his best vocal work on his own albums. Titles include "The Belldog", "Broken Head", "Light Arms", "Old Land", and "Oil". LP, Vinyl record album

HeldonHeldon 6 – Interface ... CD
Cobra/Bureau B (Germany), 1977. New Copy ... $16.99
A wonderfully noisy French album from 1977 – quite unlike anything that most of the world was working on at the time – but maybe at a level that was a preface to darker sounds in the years to come! Heldon might be sometimes grouped with the European prog scene of the 70s, but they've also got a darker vibe here that's very different than the rest – maybe almost hinting at some of the textures and tones of the post-punk years, while also evoking the Italian Cosmic world – but all in a space that's very much their own, coming from the ever-flowing talents of Richard Pinhas on electronics and guitar – with heavy drums from Francois Auger, more electronics from Patrick Gauthier, and some occasional bass from Didier Batard. The title track is a side-long jam that's really mindblowing – and other titles include "Jet Girl", "Les Souccoupes Volantes Vertes", "Le Retour Des Souccoupes Volantes", and "Bal A Fou". CD

HeldonStand By ... CD
Egg/Bureau B (Germany), 1979. New Copy ... $16.99
There's nothing on standby here – as Heldon are moving at full speed right from the start – soaring away in their trademark blend of heavy percussion and electronics! The album's a bit less noisy than their previous efforts, but no less cosmic overall – as side one features a long suite of tracks that build beautifully from the mini moog of Patrick Gauthier, guitars and electronics of Richard Pinhas, drums of Francois Auger, and bass of Didier Batard – and side two features two shorter, but equally mindblowing tracks! The sound is nicely post-prog – that same direction some German groups were taking at the time, but not yet with a post-punk vibe – and there's a quality to the whole record that's years ahead of its time – at that level that's maybe only made Heldon truly appreciated by later generations outside their native scene. Titles include "Stand By", "Bolero", and "Une Drole De Journee". CD

HeldonUn Reve Sans Consequence Speciale ... CD
Cobra/Bureau B (Germany), 1976. New Copy ... $16.99
Some of the headiest music ever made by this legendary French combo of the 70s – long tracks that have plenty of incredible electronics from Richard Pinhas, and plenty of freewheeling moments too! Heldon may have gotten their start in the progressive work, but here they really take off to sonic territory of their own – very burning and intense, and maybe even more avant overall – in a collision of free jazz, electronics, and raw percussion – all still with some rock sensibilities in the mix, but also very free of any generic expectations! The lack of categorization is what sometimes kept these French albums out of the same sort of limelight as German or British work of the time – but it also is what makes them so much more exciting all these many years later. Titles include "Elephanta", "MVC II", "Toward The Red Line", and "Marie Virginie C". CD

OttoOver The Top Orchester ... CD
Bureau B (Germany), 2019. New Copy ... $16.99
A cool little duo – one with a sound that hearkens back to the best German electronic styles of the early 80s – which maybe you might have guessed from their retro look, and the Farfisa organ on the cover! Despite their claim of being an "over the top orchester", the sound is very spare and minimal throughout – usually just drum machine beats and these great retro keyboard elements – mostly warm and analogue-sounding, with elements that remind us of some of the German Sky Records material reissued by the Bureau B label over the years – which makes the company a great home to this contemporary group. Songs are spare instrumentals, tuneful yet moody – almost in the Test Card EP style of Young Marble Giants. Titles include "Auto Disco", "Feuer Spucken", "Morgen Danach", "LKS 98", "Kanapee Pop", "Huch Zu Ross", and "Auf Dem Roten Teppich". CD

✨✧ VariousEasy Christmas Now – Groovy Carols For A Cozy Winter ... CD
Bureau B (Germany), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A wonderfully groovy set of Christmas tracks – one done in a style very similar to the Get Easy Snow compilations – as you might guess from the title! The selection here is great – with a few perennial favorites, a few rare gems, and a great middle stretch of wonderful bits from some of the grooviest artists of the 60s and 70s – a great antidote to some of the too-played holiday music you might hear during the 12th month of the year! Titles include "Santa Claus Is Definitely Hear To Stay" by James Brown, "Close Your Mouth It's Christmas" by Free Design, "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" by Jimmy McGriff, "Snow" by Claudine Longet, "Black Christmas" by The Emotions, "Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer" by The Temptations, "Christmas Gift" by Margie Joseph, "Winter Warm" by Bob Crewe Generation, "Snow Flakes" by The Ventures, "Winter Symphony" by The Beach Boys, "This Christmas" by Donny Hathaway, "Children Go Where I Send Thee" by Kenny Burrell, "We Wish You A Merry Christmas" by Ray Anthony & His Bookends, "Swinging Christmas" by Helmut Zacharias, and "Jingo Jango" by Bert Kaempfert.

✨✧ Conrad SchnitzlerGold ... LP
Marginal Talent/Bureau B (Germany), Mid 70s. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Beautiful sound textures from Conrad Schnitzler – even more personal and more evocative than work by most of his contemporaries! Elements of Cluster or Moebius echo through these tunes – but the sound is often much more abstract – never noisy, but not always concerned with a tune either – very scene-setting and poetic, with a sense of warmth even when the electronics are a bit dark and stark! Reissue features notes from Asmus Tietchens – whose own music clearly owes a lot to this moment in Schnitzler's career. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gunter SchickertNachtfalter ... LP
Bureau B (Germany), 2018. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A surprising new set from Gunter Schickert – a 70s Krautrock giant who's probably best known for his work on the Brain label – stepping out here with a sound that makes us feel as if the decades haven't passed at all! The album's named after a moth, who drifted into the studio during the recording of the music – and it's got this dreamy quality that revels in the kind of echoey, abstracted guitar work that Gunter's always done so well – layered with additional electronics and equally abstracted drums from Andreas Spechtl – then taken into very moody territory. Titles include "Nocturnus", "Ceiling", "Floor", "Light", "Wohin", and "Reflection Of The Future". LP, Vinyl record album
