✨✧ ClusterCluster 1971 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Brain/Bureau B (Germany), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first rumblings of genius from German electronic giants Cluster – but oddly, a record recorded without any synthesizers at all! The team of Dieter Moebius and Hans-Joachim Rodelius are both playing organ here – as well as cello and Hawaiian guitar, and some "audio-generator" and amplifier effects – and they're recording with some excellent production help from the legendary Conny Plank, who uses all sorts of weird techniques to mess up the sound in really great ways. Ordinary notes are completely abstracted here – given cosmic tones and echoey rumblings that are far more challenging than most of the later work by Cluster, especially the pair's more ambient late 70s recordings. The 3 long songs are identified only by their timings – "15:33", "7:38", and "21:17". LP, Vinyl record album
(Hand-numbered limited edition of 500!)

ClusterCuriosum ... LP
Sky/Bureau B (Germany), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
One of the last Cluster albums recorded for a long stretch – and a set that maybe makes us wonder what Moebius and Roedelius would have done, had they kept on working in this direction! It's almost as if the groundbreaking duo were listening to the creations of the younger generation that they had influenced – particularly the German new wave rising up around them – and they reach for slightly darker modes here, with some edgier electronics that come off almost in tuneful industrial territory – and we mean that before the "dance" was added to that style a few years later. Tracks include "Oh Odessa", "Proantipro", "Seltsame Gegend", "Helle Melange", "Tristran In Der Bar", "Charlic", and "Ufer". LP, Vinyl record album

ClusterGrosses Wasser ... LP
Sky/Bureau B (Germany), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $27.99 29.99
Beautiful spare electronics, art rock, and even a little bit of avant funk from the Cluster team of Rodelius & Moebius! Grosses Wasser is an underrated effort from a combo that's been consistently underappreciated – one of the non-Eno collaborations, and showing that Cluster is a formidable artistic force with and without the aforementioned genius. Most tracks start out on the spare tip and slowly build in mood – utilizing electronics and ambient atmosphere. It has some dark touches, but is playful at times, too, and this is a vital piece of the Cluster puzzle. featuring the tracks "Avanti", "Prothese", "Isodea", "Manchmal", and "Grosses Wasser".

ClusterKollektion 06 – Cluster 1971 to 1981 – Compiled & Assembled by John McEntire (white colored vinyl) ... LP
Bureau B (Germany), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $27.99
A fantastic dig through the music of Cluster – one that not only features some of their spacey minimal moments from Sky Records, but also includes some of their earliest sounds on Brain Records too! Producer/musician John McIntire's been influenced strongly by Cluster's music over the years – and here, he returns his love to the duo of Dieter Moebius and Hans-Joachim Rodelius – by offering up his own edits of their tracks "Grosses Wasser", "In Ewigkeit", and "21 32" – alongside well-chosen classics that include "Hollywood", "The Shade", "Fur Die Katz", "Oh Odessa", and "Wehrmut".

✨✧ Cluster & EnoCluster & Eno ... LP
Sky/Bureau B (Germany), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 Cluster, and gives them a darker Eno edge – in a way that gives the record an incredibly moody feel, and predates endless electronic work to come in the 90s. There's a spare brilliance here that's almost indescribable – songs that are hardly songs, sounds that slide back into silence – but somehow the whole thing's got a power that's far beyond the sum of its very small parts. Titles include "Wehrmut", "Fur Luise", "One", and "Die Bunge". LP, Vinyl record album

Der PlanSave Your Software ... LP
Bureau B (Germany), 1989. New Copy ... $14.99
A never-issued album from German electronic geniuses Der Plan – a record that's billed as "autonomous robot product – produced by machine only" – so maybe the group held it back to prevent some sort of a robot uprising! Yet the only uprising the record might have produced would be that of a rave-like party – as the tunes are upbeat, groovy, and filled with all the wit that we always love in the group's work – short, catchy tracks that mix offbeat noises with more tuneful elements – all with vocals that are so heavily processed, they might well come from an old Speak & Spell toy. Titles include "Repair Yourself", "Copy Copy Machine", "Cyberspace", "LPB", "I Want To Sing Like Ella", and "Fanuk Rock". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ HeldonThird (2LP version – with bonus tracks) ... LP
Bureau B (Germany), 1975. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Electronic space rock of the highest pedigree – a brilliant third effort from Richard Pinhas and Heldon, nestled nicely in territory between the Cluter/Eno axis and Metal Machine Music – with perhaps a slightly stronger dose of proggish psych as well! The double-length set is filled with compelling keyboards and wonderfully snakey guitars – almost talking themselves with Frippish tones at times – but much more way out overall, and set loose on these long, extended instrumentals that are totally great! Titles include "ICS Machinique", "Cocaine", "Aurore", "Virgin Swedish Blue", "Ocean Boogi", and "Doctor Bloodmoney". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Palais SchaumburgPalais Schaumburg (red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Mercury/Bureau B (Germany), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The first album by Palais Schaumburg – and easily the hardest set the group ever recorded – a really mad batch of rhythms that comes off with raw post punk energy! At some level, the group share a lot with some of their post-prog German contemporaries – some of the noisy elements of Einsturzende Neubauten, the hypnotic grooves of Die Krupps, or the playful electronics of Pyrolator – yet at another level, Palais Schaumburg also remind us a lot of the arty, dubby groups of the UK scene at the time – with the basslines up a fair bit in the mix, and cold-toned lyrics that snap along with the skittish rhythms amidst the occasional flurry of horns – almost in a space between The Slits, Rip Rig & Panic, and the more experimental pre-country years of The Mekons. Great stuff all around – very ripe for rediscovery today – with tracks that include "Die Freunde", "Wir Bauen Eine Neue Stadt", "Gute Luft", "Grunes Winkelkanu", "Morgen Wird Der Wald Gefegt", "Madonna", and "Eine Geschichte". LP, Vinyl record album

RoedeliusDiary Of The Unforgotten – Selbstportrait VI ... LP
Sky/Bureau B (Germany), Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $27.99
Really lovely work from German music pioneer Hans Joachim Roedelius – tracks recorded in the 70s, but unissued until the time of this album from 1990 – and very much in the best spirit of his groundbreaking work on the Sky Records label! If you know the other "self portrait" records from Hans, you'll know what to expect here – spare, slow-building sounds that are heavy on electronics, mixed with a bit of piano – and used in a very open, organic way – so that Roedelius is often moving in the same territory as the Ambient albums by his sometime-collaborator Brian Eno. Includes "Remember Those Days", "Frohgemut", "Du", "Manono", "Ampfer", "Weg", "Diary Of The Unforgotten", and "Hommage A Forst". LP, Vinyl record album

Jimi TenorDeep Sound Learning – 1993 to 2000 ... LP
Bureau B (Germany), 1990s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $18.99
Early work from Jimi Tenor – the Finnish artist you might know for his work in the fields of jazz, soul, and funk in our current century – but who was a very different musician in the years before! Jimi still has a soulful vibe on these early tracks, but the music is much more electric, and focused on rhythms from house and club – kind of a reworking of a Detroit or Chicago mode, but with all these wonderful twists and turns along the way! Jimi once recorded for Warp Records, and you can definitely hear that in some of these tracks – while also noting some echoes of the jazz instrumentation to come. Titles include "Heinola", "Jameson", "Another Space Travel", "Baby It Hearts", "Salo", "Downtown", "Super Beat", "Travelers Cape", "O Sex", and "Plan 9". LP, Vinyl record album
Also available Deep Sound Learning – 1993 to 2000 ... CD 9.99

✨✧ Barry SistersOur Way ... LP
Mainstream, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Very groovy work from The Barry Sisters – and quite different than their better-known early work for Roulette Records! This set's still got the hip harmonies of the pair in place, but is done with a warmer 70s sort of glow – orchestrated by Jim Tyler with a relatively full feel, but one that's a nice change for the duo – who sing in Yiddish throughout, and bring a really fresh feel to a host of familiar numbers from the late 60s/early 70s. Reboot have done an excellent job with the reissue – adding in extra photos, lots of notes, and an overdue appreciation of this lost vocal gem – which, with its change of language, reminds us a bit of some of the hip titles that have been reissued on the Bureau label of late. Titles include "Love Story", "To Life", "My Way", "Cabaret", "Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head", and "It's Impossible". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jean-Claude NachonLa Femme Objet ... LP
Les Disques Du Culte (France), Early 80s. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A record with a sexy little cover, but one that's got a lot more electronic appeal than you might expect – porno soundtrack music from Jean Claude Nachon, but scored with an array of keyboards and other electronic instruments – in ways that are very different than any sort of classic 70s pornographic music! The feel here different from track to track – some have maybe a Stelvio Cipriani sort of keyboard charm, others are more spare and electric – almost like a shorter take on German 70s material, mixed with some quirkier early 80s elements too. The whole thing's maybe as appealing to fans of some of the German reissues on the Bureau B label as it is vintage soundtrack work. Tracks are of varying length, and titles include "Interlude Interlope", "Supternaturiste", "Olga Et L'Attachee Des Fesses", "Eros Thanatos Et Mykonos", "Rodeo Romantique Pour Angelique", "Portrait Robot D'Une Poupee Gonflee", "Recontre Du Troisieme Sexe", and "Kim Et Olga Dezipent Les Gigabits". LP, Vinyl record album
(NOTE: Comes with a very pornographic comic book and inserts. Be warned – not for the sensitive!)
