Dead Can DanceInto The Labyrinth (Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab) ... LP
4AD/Mobile Fidelity, 1993. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $49.99
A record that seems to take Dead Can Dance even farther back into the past than ever before – not to the sound of their earliest years, but to a world of ancient musical elements that come together beautifully in their hands! The set is probably the most carefully-recorded the group ever gave us – and one of the most sensitive too – with spacious qualities that can let individual vocal or instrumental passages really resonate, while wider washes of sound come in to tie the whole thing together, but in a way that's greatly matured since the earlier years of 4AD. Lisa Gerrard's vocals are amazing – and titles include "The Carnival Is Over", "Ariadne", "Towards The Within", "Spirit", "Bird", and "How Fortunate The Man With None". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Scott WalkerChildhood Of A Leader ... LP
4AD, 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the most amazing records we've heard from Scott Walker in years – a set that even stands out from the incredible sounds of his revived career in the past decade or two! Walker's been a dark artist during all of those times – far moodier than any of his work of the 60s or 70s might make you expect – but here, he steps sideways a bit, and casts his shadow in a slightly different light – working with larger orchestrations on the music, which was designed as the soundtrack to the film in the title – although the album has more than enough appeal to Walker fans on its own! The big difference this time is that the setting is instrumental – a large batch of strings and woodwinds conducted by Mark Warman, with all the moody currents that Walker has given us in his music from Tilt onwards – but reflected here without those trademark vocals, in ways that put even more emphasis on Scott's tonal conception of the different instrumental elements. Longtime studio partner Peter Walsh produced the set with Walker – and the whole thing really lives up to the legacy of haunting sounds that began with their collaboration on Climate Of The Hunter.

Circuit Des YeuxReaching for Indigo ... CD
Drag City, 2017. New Copy ... $12.99 14.98
An extremely beautiful set from singer Haley Fohr – a record that combines late folk singer/songwriter styles with some of the deeper, darker tones of the post-punk generation too – in a way that feels like Tom Rapp into 4AD, or maybe Robbie Basho into Diamanda Galas! The songs are maybe more understated than both of those 80s references might imply – handled with less of a self-conscious mode, with light instrumentation provided by various members of the Chicago scene – in this seamless blend of acoustic and electric elements, often at a level that makes it difficult to tell which instrument is which – or where the overall sound is coming from. But that's also part of the album's success – as it's got a slightly unsettling feel that really matches the vibe of the lyrics, even when the flow of Fohr's vocals can be melodically seductive. Titles include "Black Fly", "Philo", "Paper Bag", "A Story Of This World Part 2", "Geyser", "Falling Blonde", and "Brainshift". CD

Johann JohanssonOrphee ... CD
Deutsche Grammophon (Germany), 2016. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A beautiful re-interpretation of the myth of Orpheus – handled here by composer Johann Johannsson in a beautiful style that recalls some of the best Deutsche Grammophon projects from Max Richter! The composer plays a variety of keyboards – including electric and pipe organ – in shifting settings that either feature the American Contemporary Ensemble's strings, the cello of Hildur Guonadottir, the AIR Lyndhurst String Orchestra, or the shifting Theater Of Voices conducted by Paul Hillier – all musical elements which are sampled and used carefully alongside Johannsson's keyboards and a bit of electronics – with results that seem to take the generation of 4AD and advance it more than a few steps with a new sort of complexity and emotional depth. The blend of the compositional and personal here is wonderful – maybe even more so than in Richter's work – and titles include "A Pile Of Dust", "Flight From The City", "The Radiant City", "Fragment II", "The Burning Mountain", "Good Morning Midnight", and "Orphic Hymn".

Kenji KawaiGhost In The Shell ... LP
WRWTFWW (Switzerland), 1995. New Copy ... $25.99
Surprisingly beautiful sounds from the original Ghost In The Shell feature film – music that's far more organic and acoustic than you might expect, and much more subtle than the usual anime soundtrack! Many moments here almost feel like outtakes from some 80s session for 4AD – maybe more interesting percussion or production passages from a This Mortal Coil project, mixed with some Dead Can Dance-like elements of vocals or pan-global references – yet all done without any sense of cliche, and a really rich vibe that makes this one way more than the usual "game music" score. Titles include "Ghosthack", "Puppetmaster", "Virtual Crime", "Ghost City", "Nightstalker", "Floating Museum", and "Ghostdive". LP, Vinyl record album
Also available Ghost In The Shell (with bonus 7" single & book) ... LP 42.99

✨✧ Popol VuhSei Still Wisse Ich Bin (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Innovative Communication/Wah Wah (Spain), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Maybe one of the most spiritual albums ever recorded by Popol Vuh – recorded with a huge choir on the first track, which really sets a lofty sound for the rest of the session! The music is a fantastic mix of earthy, organic elements and more heavenly sounds – served up by the core trio of Florian Fricke on piano, Renate Knaup on vocal, and Daniel Fichelschner on guitar and drums – but processed heavily throughout, so that the familiar elements are often abstracted into dark washes of moody sound! In a way, the whole thing's almost a precursor for the 4AD generation – even though most of those artists would have never admitted it at the time – and is more proof that the hip German cats of the 70s were always light years ahead of the rest. Titles include "Wehe Khorazin", "Garten Der Gemeinschaft", "Las Los", "Gemeinsam Assen Sie Das Brot", and "Und Als Er Sah Es Geht Dem Ende Zu". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 500!)
