Sprightly, modernist Kollywood pop from the mid 80s – beautifully sung by KS Chithra, with the boundary-busting sounds and arrangements of Ilaiyaraaja!

The first-ever release of some incredible funky folk tunes from vocalist Susan Christie – originally recorded as demos in the years before her work at Columbia Records, and arguably even better than those classic singles!

Really beautiful work from electronic musician Suzanne Ciani – two long live performances from 1975 – both on her own Buchla synthesizer, and both in a mode that's quite different from her later material The first side features a performance done for WBAI – and Ciani is amazing ... (Sound Library) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Comes with a very cool insert – a facsimilie of a report to the National Endowment For The Arts – done by Ciani in 1975!)
Suzanne Ciani has cut some sweeter sets over the years, but this album's definitely not one of them – as the whole thing is an early piece from the artist's career, recorded on the Buchla synthesizer, and based on the work of Charles Baudelaire! The core piece, "Flower Of Evil", ... (Sound Library) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Heavy electro work from Suzanne Ciani – an artist who peaked a bit later than some of her sound library contemporaries – which means she was able to contribute music experimental films, record productions, and video games – and not just the usual mainstream outlets! Ciani's ... (Sound Library) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A beautifully trippy duo who work here mostly with electronics – but who use the instruments in very organic ways that are almost acoustic! There's an earthy, almost hippieish quality to the sounds on the set – music that belies the pair's placement in the pre-New Age instrumental ... (Sound Library) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A dark little soundtrack that we'd pitch right up there with The Wicker Man or Rosemary's Baby – and one with a sound that's somewhere in between those two classics! The work was penned for an obscure early 70s film in the Czech new wave – and features music that's sometimes a bit ... (Soundtracks) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A lost chapter in the legendary legacy of music from the team of Serge Gainsbourg and Jean-Claude Vannier – the pair who created Serge's fantastic Melody Nelson album, and also did the funky soundtracks for the films Cannabis, La Horse, and Sex Shop! This set is every bit as groovy as those ... (French) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
"Black Cat" is a groovy little tune from Turkish rocker Durul Gence – maybe slightly more Anglo-styled than music from some of his contemporaries, but in a really great way! Lyrics are in English, and the tune's got this great groove that mixes acoustic guitar and fuzz with plenty ... (Funky 45's) read more7-inch, Vinyl record
A biker soundtrack to end all biker soundtracks – one that shares plenty of elements with better-known entries in the genre, but which also has some really wild and offbeat moments! As with most of the short-lived motorcycle soundtrack era, the vibe here is much more rock than other film ... (Soundtracks) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
You may not be able to say his name that easily, but you'll definitely be singing the praises of Gokcen Kaynatan after you hear this groovy little record – a totally amazing bit of moogy electronics recorded on the Turkish scene in the 60s and 70s!

Possession ... LP Finders Keepers (UK), 1981. New Copy ...
Amazing sounds from Polish composer Andrzej Korzynski – penned for a legendary horror film from the early 80s! The movie goes way beyond typical grit and gore – with a surreal bent that's made it the stuff of much discussion over the years – and Korzynski's music definitely lives ...

Fantastic sounds from outer space – a electro-acoustic masterpiece, put together for a Czech sci-fi film of the 60s – but done in a mode that stretches far out into space beyond the world of cinema! The music is stark and dark at some times – almost with an electro-shock approach ... (Soundtracks) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An amazing sonic portrait of the modern city – one created on the early 70s Italian scene, but lost to the shifting sands of time, due to its release as a sound library-only album! We've heard Maria Teresa Luciani on a few other records of this nature – but this one may well be her ... (Sound Library) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The Moomins comics have delighted the world for generations – but fewer folks have seen the early 80s Moomins TV show – which is a masterpiece of felt-based, stop-motion animation!

I A De Sars ... LP Ventadorn/Finders Keepers (UK), 1977. New Copy (reissue)...
An album from the mid 70s, but one that's got an almost timeless sort of vibe – given that it was recorded in the ancient language of Occitan, and set to instrumentation with lots of lightly folksy touches, and a fair bit of jazz-styled phrasing too! The mix almost gives the set the feel of ... (Rock) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A strange spacey soundtrack from mid 80s Spain – one composed for a daytime TV show, but with a weird electronic vibe that must have shocked the kids who were watching at the time!

Popera Cosmic —
Les Esclaves ... LP Columbia/Finders Keepers (UK), 1969. New Copy (reissue)...
The group name's got "opera" in the middle, but the set is way more than that – and way more than the usual "rock opera" modes in which the rare album is frequently cited! Instead, the whole thing's a freewheeling bit of French psych – very much tied to the trippier ... (Rock) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Funky sounds and offbeat grooves from an obscure French adult film of the late 60s – directed by Jean Rollin under a fake name, and scored by Pierre Raph with the same sort of charm as his work for Requiem For A Vampire!

A baroque instrumental masterpiece from Jean Claude Vannier – Serge Gainsbourg's right hand man at the start of the 70s, and a key figure in the legendary Histoire De Melody Nelson album!

Fuzzy, funky, and freaky – some really incredible work from Hungarian rocker Sarolta Zalatnay – an artist with a groove that's a lot easier to get than her name!
