Karel GoeyvaertsKarel Goeyvaerts ... LP
Cacophonic (UK), 1973/1977. New Copy ... $22.99
Beautiful sounds from Karel Goeyvaeters – a Dutch minimalist with a really wonderful sense of tone! The album features two long pieces, both from the mid 70s – each using a variety of sounds in cyclical fashion – in ways that recall some of the best Terry Riley material of the time – even though some of the construction also echoes the approach of Philip Glass or Steve Reich! Karel really likes things to unfold in a subtle, sensitive way – and the tones move along in these patterns that are sometimes imperceptible, sometimes more striking – occasionally with a bit of dissonance, but often with these really lovely little sounds. Side one features "Pour Que Les Fruits Murissent Cet Ete" – and side two features "Op Acht Paarden Wedden". (Out Sound, Sound Library) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Mateusz SwiecickiHalo Wenus (with bonus tracks) ... CD
GAD (Poland), 1974. New Copy ... $12.99
Dig space age sounds? Then you're going to find plenty to love here – in a record that's filled with sweet keyboard instrumentals, odd electronics, and lots of lovely little melodies – all brought together in a record that easily transports the listener to the planet Venus! The approach here is a bit like some of the best German sci fi soundtrack work by Peter Thomas and Ingfried Hoffmann at the end of the 60s – but also has some of the playful electronics of the German new wave from later years, particularly the work of Der Plan – but there's also something really special to the set, which is both experimental and groovy at the same time – recorded in relatively obscurity for Polish Radio in the early 70s, and finally getting proper release! Instrumentation includes this wonderful blend of Arp Odyssey and Yamaha Organ – instruments used alongside more familiar bass and drums, which are focused enough to create the right sort of rhythms for most tracks – never making for overdone groovers or too-fast tunes, with a pace that's maybe in the best Perrey-Kingsley mode. Titles include "Gin Mill On Crater", "Hello Venus", "Space Jam", "Electro Cats", "War Of Giants", "Sunbird Waltz", "Galactic Bridge", and "Astro Clock". CD features two bonus tracks too! CD
