Serge BlennerLa Vogue ... CD
Sky/Bureau B (Germany), 1980. Used ... $9.99
A really cool keyboard set from Serge Blenner – issued during the glory days of the German Sky Records label, but with a vibe that's a bit different than most of their other releases! Blenner works on an assortment of keyboard and electronic sources – but with a sound that's maybe more Sheffield than Hamburg, especially as there's some great use of darkness and distortion in the mix – less clean electronics than some of his Sky contemporaries, which creates a very cool, moody sound throughout! The album has eight instrumental tracks – each a numbered "Phrase" by Serge. CD

ClusterCuriosum ... LP
Sky/Bureau B (Germany), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
One of the last Cluster albums recorded for a long stretch – and a set that maybe makes us wonder what Moebius and Roedelius would have done, had they kept on working in this direction! It's almost as if the groundbreaking duo were listening to the creations of the younger generation that they had influenced – particularly the German new wave rising up around them – and they reach for slightly darker modes here, with some edgier electronics that come off almost in tuneful industrial territory – and we mean that before the "dance" was added to that style a few years later. Tracks include "Oh Odessa", "Proantipro", "Seltsame Gegend", "Helle Melange", "Tristran In Der Bar", "Charlic", and "Ufer". LP, Vinyl record album

Der PlanSave Your Software ... CD
Bureau B (Germany), 1989. New Copy ... $16.99
A never-issued album from German electronic geniuses Der Plan – a record that's billed as "autonomous robot product – produced by machine only" – so maybe the group held it back to prevent some sort of a robot uprising! Yet the only uprising the record might have produced would be that of a rave-like party – as the tunes are upbeat, groovy, and filled with all the wit that we always love in the group's work – short, catchy tracks that mix offbeat noises with more tuneful elements – all with vocals that are so heavily processed, they might well come from an old Speak & Spell toy. Titles include "Repair Yourself", "Copy Copy Machine", "Cyberspace", "LPB", "I Want To Sing Like Ella", and "Fanuk Rock". CD

HeldonThird (2LP version – with bonus tracks) ... LP
Bureau B (Germany), 1975. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $30.99
Electronic space rock of the highest pedigree – a brilliant third effort from Richard Pinhas and Heldon, nestled nicely in territory between the Cluter/Eno axis and Metal Machine Music – with perhaps a slightly stronger dose of proggish psych as well! The double-length set is filled with compelling keyboards and wonderfully snakey guitars – almost talking themselves with Frippish tones at times – but much more way out overall, and set loose on these long, extended instrumentals that are totally great! Titles include "ICS Machinique", "Cocaine", "Aurore", "Virgin Swedish Blue", "Ocean Boogi", and "Doctor Bloodmoney". LP, Vinyl record album

Palais SchaumburgPalais Schaumburg (red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Mercury/Bureau B (Germany), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99
The first album by Palais Schaumburg – and easily the hardest set the group ever recorded – a really mad batch of rhythms that comes off with raw post punk energy! At some level, the group share a lot with some of their post-prog German contemporaries – some of the noisy elements of Einsturzende Neubauten, the hypnotic grooves of Die Krupps, or the playful electronics of Pyrolator – yet at another level, Palais Schaumburg also remind us a lot of the arty, dubby groups of the UK scene at the time – with the basslines up a fair bit in the mix, and cold-toned lyrics that snap along with the skittish rhythms amidst the occasional flurry of horns – almost in a space between The Slits, Rip Rig & Panic, and the more experimental pre-country years of The Mekons. Great stuff all around – very ripe for rediscovery today – with tracks that include "Die Freunde", "Wir Bauen Eine Neue Stadt", "Gute Luft", "Grunes Winkelkanu", "Morgen Wird Der Wald Gefegt", "Madonna", and "Eine Geschichte". LP, Vinyl record album

RoedeliusSelbstportrait – Wahre Liebe ... CD
Sky/Bureau B (Germany), 2020. Used ... $11.99
A beautiful contemporary album that follows the same spirit of the vintage Selbsportrait records by Roedelius – and one that uses the same sort of vintage instrumentation too – given that the master of spare musical space works here on Fender Rhodes, Farfisa, Roland and Korg keyboards! The songs are wonderful – lyrical in a subtle way, and with maybe a slight bit more variation than some of the Ambient work by Brian Eno – although still that similar balance between silence and sound, which is why Roedelius was such a great partner with Eno on a few projects back in the day. Selections vary in length from 36 seconds to 14 minutes – and titles include "Aus Weilter Ferne", "Nahwarme", "Ebenfalls", "Gerne", "Spiel Im Wind", "Geruhsam", and "Im Kreisel". CD

Jimi TenorDeep Sound Learning – 1993 to 2000 ... CD
Bureau B (Germany), 1990s. New Copy 2CD ... $20.99
Early work from Jimi Tenor – the Finnish artist you might know for his work in the fields of jazz, soul, and funk in our current century – but who was a very different musician in the years before! Jimi still has a soulful vibe on these early tracks, but the music is much more electric, and focused on rhythms from house and club – kind of a reworking of a Detroit or Chicago mode, but with all these wonderful twists and turns along the way! Jimi once recorded for Warp Records, and you can definitely hear that in some of these tracks – while also noting some echoes of the jazz instrumentation to come. Titles include "Heinola", "Jameson", "Another Space Travel", "Baby It Hearts", "Salo", "Downtown", "Super Beat", "Travelers Cape", "O Sex", and "Plan 9". CD

VariousEins Und Zwei Und Drei Und Vier – Deutsche Experimentelle Pop Musik 1980 to 1986 ... CD
Bureau B (Germany), Early 80s. New Copy ... $17.99
Some of the coolest work of the German scene in the 80s – a range of electronic, experimental pop that's very different than both the longer prog recordings of the 70s, and some of the mellower ambient sounds that were also coming out of Germany at the same time! Instead, the cuts here are from the German new wave – a scene that's named similarly to the ones in the US and UK in the early 80s, but which has a vibe that's both darker at times, and more playful too – much more interesting overall, and with results that weren't nearly as well-circulated at the time! Instrumentation is heavy on electronics, but used in ways that are nicely varied, and often mixed with all sorts of other cool sounds too – not nearly as stiff or dark as the cold wave generation, and with results that are full of surprises all the way through! Titles include "Hey Baby Hop" by Der Plan, "Keine Python" by Dunkelziffer, "Sandkorn" by Die Doraus Und Die Marinas, "Muster" by Populare Mechanik, "Hohe Punk Kleiner Mann" by Asmus Tietchens, "Die Farbe War Mod" by Carambolage, "Sample & Hold" by Xao Seffcheque, "Im Zoo" by Pyrolator, "Sentimental" by Traneinvasion, "Erwin Das Tanzende Messer" by Di Zimmermanner, "Austauschprogramm" by Die Partei, and "Sexueller Nostand" by Ostro 430.

✨✧ VariousEasy Christmas Now – Groovy Carols For A Cozy Winter ... CD
Bureau B (Germany), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A wonderfully groovy set of Christmas tracks – one done in a style very similar to the Get Easy Snow compilations – as you might guess from the title! The selection here is great – with a few perennial favorites, a few rare gems, and a great middle stretch of wonderful bits from some of the grooviest artists of the 60s and 70s – a great antidote to some of the too-played holiday music you might hear during the 12th month of the year! Titles include "Santa Claus Is Definitely Hear To Stay" by James Brown, "Close Your Mouth It's Christmas" by Free Design, "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" by Jimmy McGriff, "Snow" by Claudine Longet, "Black Christmas" by The Emotions, "Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer" by The Temptations, "Christmas Gift" by Margie Joseph, "Winter Warm" by Bob Crewe Generation, "Snow Flakes" by The Ventures, "Winter Symphony" by The Beach Boys, "This Christmas" by Donny Hathaway, "Children Go Where I Send Thee" by Kenny Burrell, "We Wish You A Merry Christmas" by Ray Anthony & His Bookends, "Swinging Christmas" by Helmut Zacharias, and "Jingo Jango" by Bert Kaempfert.

✨✧ RoedeliusDurch Die Wuste ... CD
Sky/Bureau B (Germany), 1976/1978. Used ... Out Of Stock
Masterful late 70s proggy grooves from Cluster's Hans-Joachim Roedelius – his first solo album, and wonderful, unpredictable journey in changing dynamics! Even the tunes with instrumentation that seems like standard rock materials of guitar, bass, drums and keyboards of wild textures coming from the keys, and echoey bits of sonic errata to give some otherworldly sounds, but have a gritty, grooving bottom end – and other tunes have a sparely haunting sound to them. Just great stuff, certainly necessary for Cluster, but worth the while of anyone with an ear for proggy soundscapes! Players include Jose Christo, Konrad Plank and Moebius. Titles include "Am Rockzipfel", "Dutrch Die Wuste", "Johannelust", "Glaubersalz", "Mr Livingstone I Suppose" and "Regenmacher". CD

Jean-Claude NachonLa Femme Objet ... LP
Les Disques Du Culte (France), Early 80s. New Copy Gatefold ... $48.99
A record with a sexy little cover, but one that's got a lot more electronic appeal than you might expect – porno soundtrack music from Jean Claude Nachon, but scored with an array of keyboards and other electronic instruments – in ways that are very different than any sort of classic 70s pornographic music! The feel here different from track to track – some have maybe a Stelvio Cipriani sort of keyboard charm, others are more spare and electric – almost like a shorter take on German 70s material, mixed with some quirkier early 80s elements too. The whole thing's maybe as appealing to fans of some of the German reissues on the Bureau B label as it is vintage soundtrack work. Tracks are of varying length, and titles include "Interlude Interlope", "Supternaturiste", "Olga Et L'Attachee Des Fesses", "Eros Thanatos Et Mykonos", "Rodeo Romantique Pour Angelique", "Portrait Robot D'Une Poupee Gonflee", "Recontre Du Troisieme Sexe", and "Kim Et Olga Dezipent Les Gigabits". LP, Vinyl record album
(NOTE: Comes with a very pornographic comic book and inserts. Be warned – not for the sensitive!)
