Superior Viaduct, 1972.
LP ... About October 20, 2017
One of the most bizarre early works by Italian composer Franco Battiato – a record with a fetus on the cover, an inside image of his paper-mache mother, with a walk-in birth canal, and a subtitle that reads "return to the new world"! The musical style mixes Battiato's mid 70s ... LP, Vinyl record album
Superior Viaduct, 1973.
LP ... About October 20, 2017
A really full-on early set from Franco Battiato – a set that's maybe halfway between some of his more avant compositions and some of the modes of the Italian prog scene at the time! The album's a concept one, based on the growing pollution of the planet – in a mode that's maybe similar ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sulle Corde Di Aries
Superior Viaduct, Mid 70s. (reissue)
LP ... About October 20, 2017
A key turning point in the career of Italian modernist Franco Battiato – as he leaves behind the straighter progressive format of his first two albums, and moves into a mode that's much more experimental! The album features four long compositions – all of which show Battiato ... LP, Vinyl record album
Flying Dutchman/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1969.
CD ... About October 25, 2017
An incredible record from the glory days of Flying Dutchman! The session's one of a rare few cut by electronic musician Jon Appleton, and it's a stunning blend of analogue electronics and sonic cut up material – a record of musique concrete compositions to rival the greatest work coming out ... CD
Human Music
Flying Dutchman/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1969.
CD ... About October 25, 2017
A fantastic record, and one of the rarest ever on Flying Dutchman! The set is an amazing collaboration between trumpeter Don Cherry and pioneering electronic musician Jon Appleton – one of those rare meetings of the minds that goes far deeper than you'd expect! On the set, Cherry's trumpet, ... CD
Messe Pour Le Temps Present
Philips (France), 1967. (reissue)
LP ... About November 20, 2017
Fantastic! This classic bit of funky electronic French stuff has been showing up in bits and pieces on various compilations over the past few years (most notably the cut "Psyche Rock", which has some sample history to it), but this is the full release of this amazing collaboration ... LP, Vinyl record album
Universal (France),
CD ... About November 20, 2017
... CD
Prestige/4 Men With Beards, Mid 50s. (reissue)
LP ... About January 10, 2018
Incredible work from the enigmatic Moondog – his third, and to that point, possibly most angular record for Prestige to date! The work here is quite different than some of Moondog's later, more serious compositions – in a mode that's much earthier, personal, and spontaneous – a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Pop Art
Vinyl Ermitage,
LP ... About October 10, 2017 (delayed)

... CD
Nonesuch/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1987. (reissue)
LP ... About August 1, 2017 (delayed)
A great recording of Steve Reich's seminal composition "Drumming" – an amazing blend of minimal percussion snatches, coming together to form a lyrical repetitive work of great beauty! Reich heads up the recording himself – working here with 9 percussionists, 2 vocalists, a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Crammed (Belgium), 1979. (reissue)
LP ... On November 10, 2017
One of our favorite mixing of modes from the old school – a tremendous second album from the legendary Aksak Maboul! The record mixes arty playfulness with some rootsier elements – bits of Eastern instrumentation, jazz, improvisation, and even some post-punk elements – all in a ... LP, Vinyl record album
