The early 70s psych synth travels of TangerineDream! At this early point, the group is soaring from thick, eerie layers of organ atmospheres, to far trippier synth washes – and with some pummeling, drum-heavy passages. Alpha Centauri is a bit of a formative effort, but a worthy one – as TangerineDream is developing their own unique realm of the cosmos. Slow-building tension pays off with dense, riveting peaks! Includes "Sunrise in the Third System", "Fly And Collision Off Comas Sola" and the long "Alpha Centauri". LP, Vinyl record album
A great soundtrack moment for TangerineDream – and one of their darkest, too! Bill Friedkin's films are always pretty darn spooky – but the music of the group definitely adds a lot here – bringing in these coldly hypnotic passages that really work wonders with the images on the screen – and, in a way, also help TangerineDream compress their often longform electronic musings into more of an "essence" by focusing on scene-based compositions! And even without the film, the album still really stands strongly on its own – a great maturation moment for TangerineDream, but one that still has all the edge and darkness of their best early recordings too. Titles include "Rain Forest", "The Call", "Creation", "Vengeance", "Search", and "Grind". LP, Vinyl record album
Frankie, Frankie – OW! Take a broken down synth, some crazy vocals, and a rich sense of imagination – and you've got one of the seminal groups of the New York scene of the early punk years. Suicide were a seminal bridge between earlier prog underground sounds and the art-rock punk styles that were coming out of New York in the late 70s. With this one landmark album, the band completely dismantled the cold German prog synth of groups like Kraftwerk, La Dusseldorf, and TangerineDream – and created a wild sound of spare anguish that brought a whole new dimension to punk rock. Ok, maybe we're going out on a limb – but this record has got to be one of the top 50 "must have" rock albums of all time. Includes the cuts "Ghost Rider", "Rocket USA", "Johnny", "Frankie Teardrop", "Che", and "Cheree". LP, Vinyl record album
