✨✧ Brian EnoDiscreet Music ... CD
Virgin/EMI (UK), 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A modern minimalist watershed – and maybe one of the first indications that Brian Eno was moving onto higher ideas in his music! The album's an important release on the Obscure series from Island Records – a special imprint that was curated by Eno, as a way of giving showcase to new ideas in British music that were neither free jazz, punk, prog, or any of the styles that were getting more play on the bigger labels! Instead, Eno and Obscure was to the British avant composition world what Lovely or CRI were to the US – although maybe had the bigger role of some of the Columbia Records releases by Philip Glass, Steve Reich, and Terry Riley. The album features the beautiful title piece – "Discreet Music", a long work that relies on a simple system of delay and recall, with slight variations occurring over the space of time, due to slight occasional interference from the composer. Side two features "Three Variations On The Cannon In D Major By Johann Pachelbel" – a great reworking of the baroque music classic – which works along similar lines, taking this very familiar classical theme, and breaking it down into simple components, which are then interwoven and played in repetition, creating a strange little bit of romantic minimalism. That second piece is performed by the Cockpit Ensemble, conducted by Gavin Bryars – who also got some great early releases on the Obscure label too! (Rock, Out Sound) CD

✨✧ Thurston MooreSonic Street Chicago ... CD
Corbett vs. Dempsey, 2013. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A pretty great solo performance from the legendary Thurston Moore – recorded at the Art Institute Of Chicago, as live accompaniment to the film Street, by James Nares – and maybe some of the most compelling sounds we've heard from Moore in awhile! The set features just solo electric guitar, in one long track – improvising over the space of an hour, with an especially great ear for sonic textures and very subtle shapes – a gentler, more personal version of the noise in which Thurston has been steeped for many many years – and music that's every bit as beautiful as the images on the screen!

Carl Orff/Gunild KeetmanMusic For Children (2LP set) ... LP
Angel, 1958. Very Good+ 2LP ... $24.99
Amazing sounds from the man who gave the world Carmina Burana – and music that's equally spooky in its own sort of way! Carl Off composed this music for children as part of as special educational program for youth – but the overall quality of the sounds is more trance-like and eerie – almost the kind of songs they'd play in the classroom in The Wicker Man! Part of the quality might come from the fact that the lyrics here are from a British translation, so reflect some language changes – but another aspect might also be the spare instrumentation, and offbeat use of glockenspiel, metallophone, drinking glasses, and other percussion. But of course, it's the kids' voices that really make the whole thing stand out – kind of nervous and unsure in their own sort of way – in a mixture of chorus and individual parts. LP presents the full English version of the work – even creepier than the German one! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Terry RileyHarp Of New Albion ... LP
Celestial Harmonies, 1986. Near Mint- 2LP ... Out Of Stock
A spacious, dreamy minimalist piece by Riley, performed here by Riley himself on piano. Like much of his other work, theres a bit of eastern influence creeping in, with a nice spare approach overall. The piece is divided into 10 smaller sections over the course of the 2 LPs: "the New Albion Chorale/The Discovery", "The Orchestra Of Tao", "Riding The Westerleys", "Cadence On The Wind", "Premonition Rag", "Return Of The Ancestors", "Ascending Whale Dreams", "The Magic Knot Waltz", "Circle Of Wolves" and "Land's End".

VariousBrian's Imaginary Jukebox – Discreet Ruminations & Oblique 45s ... CD
Righteous (UK), Late 50s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $12.99
The "Brian" in the title is Brian Eno – as you might guess from that image from Another Green World in the middle of the cover – but the sound of this set is quite different than what you might expect! CD1 imagines the sounds that Eno would talk about informing the music of his youth – tracks that showed up often on jukeboxes stocked to service visiting American GIs, which meant that the were full of raw soul, R&B, and even a bit of jazz – elements that most folks wouldn't tie to Eno, but which you can definitely hear here in arranging and production elements that would show up on his early solo vocal music, and some of the Roxy Music sounds too. Titles include work by The Tokens, Paradons, Lafayettes, Little Willie John, Dinah Washington, Ernie K Doe, Raymond Scott, The Cosmic Rays, Moondog, and Leadbelly. CD2 features more modern moments – a mix of avant jazz, early electronics, and 20th century compositions that tie a more direct link to the ambient universe – titles that include "Dream" by John Cage, "Come Back To Earth With Me" by Louis & Bebe Barron, "Atmospheres (excerpt)" by Gyorgy Ligeti, "Sleepy Time" by Raymond Scott, "Fordommelse" by Elsa Marie Pade, "Rhythmic Variations 1" by Daphne Oram, "Low Speed (excerpt)" by Otto Lueninng, "Ignition" by Tom Dissevelt, "Ectoplasm" by Raymond Scott, and "The Bewitched (Scene 1)" by Harry Partcy.
