Chico Science & Nacao ZumbiDa Lama Ao Caos (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Chaos/Polysom (Brazil), Early 90s. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
A mad mix of loud guitar, wild samples, and heavy Brazilian percussion – all nicely topped with the soulful vocals of Chico Science! The record's one of the group's earlier ones, and it's filled with a sense of raw power and experimentation that easily demonstrates why the band grabbed so much attention so quickly. Forget all those cliches you keep hearing about the postmodern power of Tropicalia – this stuff's equally as complex, and filled with bits and pieces you wouldn't even imagine! Titles include "Da Lama Ao Caos", "Salusatiano Song", "Riso Flora", "Coco Dub", "Rios, Pontes & Overdrives", and "A Cidade", which has a nice little snippet from Mark E Smith! LP, Vinyl record album

Sun RaSpace Is The Place – Original Soundtrack (180 gram pressing – colored vinyl) ... LP
Sutro Park, 1972. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $28.99 33.99
One of the weirdest records Sun Ra ever made – music to accompany the strange film Space Is The Place – which itself was an odd mixture of science fiction and blacksploitation-type action! The sounds here are sometimes in the usual Arkestra mode – wonderfully exotic rhythms mixed with freewheeling jazz solos – but other parts seem to follow more of a soundtrack-styled need – and include some bolder action riffs, spare scene-setting moments, and even some strong vocal themes. Titles include "Watusa", "Calling Planet Earth", "Mysterious Crystal", "Outerspaceways Incorporated", "Cosmic Forces", "Satellites Are Spinning", and a version of "Space Is The Place". 74 minutes of music in all – and reissued here on vinyl in a limited version! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ ClusterKonzerte 1972/1977 (with bonus CD) ... LP
Bureau B (Germany), 1972/1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Long loopy live performances from Cluster – captured in two different sets from the 70s, both of which are maybe even more abstract than their studio material of the time! The first half of the set is from 1972 – and features the duo really spacing out on electronics – allowing waves of analogue sound to open up in a wonderful way – pulsating with frequencies that really tie them to some of the more academic experimenters of the previous decade, but handled with that more down-to-earth charm that made them so important in the 70s. The second half is from five years later, and maybe has some of the cooler, calmer elements of the Sky Records years – yet still with a more open-ended abstract quality that's mighty nice. That performance was done for the International Festival of Science Fiction – and it's definitely got a sound to match! LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes bonus CD of the entire album!)

✨✧ Attilio ''Art'' MineoMan In Space With Sounds (colored vinyl) ... LP
Modern Harmonic, 1962. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Wonderful sounds from space – put together in a rare album that was initially issued in a small batch, to coincide with the Seattle Worlds Fair in 1962! For the set, Art Mineo comes up with an amazing batch of spacey sounds that were played at the fair in conjunction with a machine called the "Bubbleator" – a weird transparent elevator – and although Mineo had recorded the music a decade before, it fits surprisingly well for the setting – thanks to quality that's definitely futuristic! There's no electronic instrumentation on the LP, but the sound is off-kilter and mighty weird – with an atonal quality that sounds like it's being made by early computer music instruments, but which is really just a string section and percussion – played in a strange, otherwordly way. The music is spooky, spare, and with an arch-evil sound that's made the record a space age classic since the day it was released – on titles that include "Welcome To Tomorrow", "Gayway To Heaven", "Soaring Silence", "Man Seeks The Future", "Science Of Tomorrow", and "The Queen City".

✨✧ Robert Glasper ExperimentArtScience (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Note, 2016. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Tremendous material from Robert Glasper – a set that takes us back to the brilliance of his first few releases for Blue Note – while also encompassing all the changes he's gone through in recent years too! There's definitely some vocals on the record – but this time around, instead of being sung by a rotating cast, they're mostly handled by Casey Benjamin – who plays saxes and additional keyboards on the set – and helps give the whole thing a nicely unified vibe. Glasper sings a bit, too – but mostly concentrates on giving us some incredible lines on Fender Rhodes – in those soulful shapes that have made his keyboard work a delight since day one – and which continue to open up into so many wonderful directions. Benjamin uses a vocoder at times, which slides in great next to the Rhodes – and the group also features wonderful bass from Derrick Hodge, who also sings on one track too. Really wonderful material – as if the Experiment side of Glasper's work was folded into his small combo ethos – with tracks that include "No One Like You", "Day To Day", "Tell Me A Bedtime Story", "Find You", "This Is Not Fear", "In My Mind", "Hurry Slowly", "Written In Stone", "Human", and "Thinkin Bout You".
