Mario NascimbenePsycorama ... LP
Minstrel/Roundtable (Australia), Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99 31.98
Some of the moodiest, most unusual music we've ever heard from Mario Nascimbene – an artist who's maybe best known for working in the more romantic side of the spectrum, but who here is using a "mixerama" keyboard – which works a bit like the mellotron to sample elements, then put them into a specific scale! The tunes are often stark and spare, and build slowly in these waves of sonic energy – almost with a quality that feels more like the industrial underground of Zoviet France or Hafler Trio than anything we might have expected from Nascimbene, especially in the 60s. The album features a selection of songs used in short documentary films directed by Roberto Rossellini – and titles include "Angoscia", "Totalia Viole-Celli", "Attesa Antica", "Situazione Orientale", "Riberbo Di Tam Tam", "Percussione Di Timpani", "Tragedia Greca", and "Lunare".

Armando SciasciaSea Fantasy ... LP
Roundtable (Australia), 1972. New Copy ... $29.99 31.98
A beautiful underwater fantasy of sound library grooves – a set that's almost the Italian equivalent to the Inner Space soundtrack from Australia by Sven Libaek! Like that set, this one uses waves of instrumental energy to create an almost watery vibe – strings mixed with keyboards, often underlain by electric bass – all at a level that's occasionally funky, always dreamy, and plenty darn cool throughout! The style continues some of the Italian soundtrack modes of a few years before, but with more fluttering elements that emphasize the "sea" in the title – on tracks that include "Underwater Fantasy", "Tempest Force 8", "High Tide", "Surging Surf", "Calm Sea", and "In The Ocean Depths".

Armando SciasciaViolin Reactions (200 gram pressing) ... LP
Vedette/Roundtable (Australia), 1974. New Copy ... $29.99
The definitely got the title right on this one – as the album's got plenty of violin, but never in the way you might expect – as the instrument is used in all these weird and wonderful ways that really make the record a treat! There's neither classical nor jazz-based violin approaches at play – and instead, Armando Sciascia almost seems to be trying to find all the weird, offbeat sounds he can from the instrument – but in ways that are sometimes funky, sometimes dark, and always pretty darn compelling! Some tracks have these chugging rhythms that come from percussion by Tullio De Piscopo – best known for his later club work – others have a spare, moody vibe with offbeat string passages echoing in space – almost as if they're electronic, with weirdly spacey qualities. The record is quite experimental for a sound library session – and titles include "Reagente B", "Acidocloroscuccinico", "Atomo Asimmetrico", "Nucleofilo", "Planctonico", "Enantiomorfo", and "Substrato Ax".

TeiscoTuscan Castle & Country Seat ... LP
Ciclamino/Roundtable (Australia), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
Hardly the kind of record you'd expect with the words "castle" and "country" in the title – a madly tripped-out sound library session that's equal parts psych funk and experimental sounds! Some of the shorter tunes are nice and funky – with raw, minimal drums and guitar that almost seem like they're going to veer off the track – a bit like the John Cale/Terry Riley experiments on Columbia. But other tunes are weirder and spacier – some with fuzzy electronics, others with a weirdly spacious, open use of guitar or piano – not really dreamy, but more tripped-out and long-form – almost a precursor to Spacemen 3. Titles include "City Sound Perspective", "Old Colours", "White Gladiator", "Green Water", and "Vision Of Shore". LP, Vinyl record album
(Heavy vinyl and cover – and bonus notes too!)

Tolley & DaraCutheart ... LP
Roundtable (Australia), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 36.99
Fantastic electronics – all improvised in real time during a live performance – but sounding like some of the best records from the Krautrock scene of the 70s! The duo here work on a variety of instruments – keyboards and synth, but also mixed with acoustic elements from flute, whistles, gongs, bells, percussion, and even a "fresh chicken", used with a meat cleaver and chopping board! Titles include "Cut The Heart Out", "It's All Lies", "Wait", "Brocken Blood", "What More Do You Want", "Flesh Alone", and "Er-Rer". LP, Vinyl record album

Charles WainLast Wave (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Roundtable (Australia), 1977. New Copy ... $29.99
A beautifully subtle electronic score for this mid 70s Australian horror film – one done with a lot more care, class, and grace than some of its contemporaries – but with an equally spooky vibe overall! The music comes a bit in the waves hinted at in the title – slow moving shapes of electronic sound that have a brooding intensity – almost with the spacious style of the German scene in the post-prog shift of the late 70s, but clearly directed more towards darker corners than any of that music! Imagine a Sky Records soundtrack for a horror film, and you'll get part of the vibe here – on titles that include "Driving Home", "David's Dream", "The Vault", "Angels", "Man In The Street", "Black Rain", "Charlie Charlie", and "Drowned World".

✨✧ Cosmic Eye (Amancio D'Silva)Dream Sequence (180 gram pressing) ... LP
EMI/Roundtable (Australia), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The most mindblowing work we've ever heard from guitarist Amancio D'Silva – a really freewheeling blend of jazz and Indian music, and a set that goes far beyond most of his other albums! The album definitely lives up to the dream sequence promised by the title – as it features one long track that spins out in a beautiful blend of tablas, sitar, flute, percussion, violin, and Amancio's own great electric guitar! The leader crafts these trippy solos that are a bit like the work of Gabor Szabo, but even more open-ended and exotic – and the group also features some great work on sax from Alan Branscombe, plus violin from John Mayer – who'd worked on previous experiments of this nature with Joe Harriott. Despite the length of the track, the record is never over-indulgent or repetitive at all – as D'Silva constantly shifts the mood and the sounds – creating this wonderful interplay that really makes for a scenic richness throughout – an evocative journey in music that holds us completely rapt all the way through.

✨✧ Klaus SchulzeNext Of Kin ... LP
Roundtable (Australia), 1982. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An obscure Klaus Schulze soundtrack, done for an Australian horror film from the early 80s – all in modes that are a nice condensation of Klaus' longer-form work from the 70s! The tunes here are still heavy on the kind of keyboards that Schulze helped pioneer in Tangerine Dream and his own solo work – but the songs are a bit shorter, and maybe more focused – yet with a complexity that almost has us wondering if Klaus was trying to show up the whole keyboard-horror generation at their own game! There seem to be a few more digital elements in the mix, too – and all tunes are instrumental, save for the last track, which has a moody vocoder vocal. Titles include "Crash Loop", "Body In Bath", "Linda Flees", "Dream Theme", "Rhythm Fugue", and "Diary Theme". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova ConsonanzaNiente ... LP
Gemelli/Roundtable (Australia), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An amazing lost album from the legendary Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza – a sextet of Italian modernists that included Ennio Morricone! The album may well be the group's grooviest ever – recorded right after their legendary Feed-back set, and done with a similar blend of compelling rhythms and odd instrumentation – in ways that are undeniably funky at points, and downright trippy at others! The drumming seems to draw a lot from the changes in German prog – with a very specific Can influence at work – and other elements move in and out of the mix in a really great way – clearly improvisational, but when the groove gets going, it's clear that the players also can't help starting to jam. The record was recorded in 1971, but never issued at the time – and titles include "Niente", "Bambu", "Toms", "Renitenza", "Mattatoio", "Down", "Sieben", and "Bali". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Alessandro AlessandroniPrisma Sonora ... LP
Roundtable (Australia), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A dream of a record from the legendary Alessandro Alessandroni – an obscure sound library set, but one that we'd rank right up there with our favorite Italian soundtrack classics of the time! Alessandroni's going for a very Morricone-like feel here – lots of spacious rhythms, isolated instruments, and a feel that's watery, but never sleepy – kind of a liquid groove that's really beautiful throughout! Instruments are nice and compressed – way down in the rhythms, and stepping along with a La Donna Invisible quality that's really sublime – just a few electric touches, but mostly acoustic, and with an equal sense of grace and groove. Titles include "Dialoghi D'Amore", "Punti Di Vista", "Breve Dialettica", "Vocali Sul Pentagramma", and "Aspetti Musicali". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ ArenaArena (180 gram pressing) (2016 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Crystal Clear/Roundtable (Australia), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A heady set of jazz from the Australian scene of the 70s – a bit funky jazz, a bit harder jamming – and a record that's got a lot more edge than its contemporaries from the European scene! Ted White plays tremendous flute and alto sax here – the latter with a sharply spiritual energy that's quite unexpected, and which gives the record a lot more soul than the usual prog-influenced fusion date of the time – a quality that's even quite different than some of the other Australian jazz material of the 70s – which, when electrified, didn't always hold onto the sharpness of its acoustic properties. Keyboards are from Peter Jones, who's nicely restrained, but makes some great contributions – and the rest of the group features Charlie Gould on guitar, Bob Arrowsmith on bass, and Graham Morgan on percussion and drums. Titles include "Turkish Defunked", "Keith's Mood", "Scrichell Cat", "Journey In Three's", "Scope", "Duke", and "The Long One". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ John BarryWalkabout (180 gram pressing) ... CD
Roundtable (Australia), 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful and exotic score from the great John Barry – one that never had as much circulation on record as some of his bigger hits of the time, but which is equally well deserving of praise! The music is done for Nicolas Roeg's film Walkabout – set mostly in the Australian outback – and Barry mixes these breathy orchestrations with some rootsier acoustic elements – in ways that really echo the contrast of the characters in the narrative, and remind us of the sensitivity that Barry can have at his most sophisticated moments. Three tracks differ slightly from this approach – the seven minute long fuzzy freakout "Electronic Dance", which is totally great in its own sort of way – the experimental echoey "Professional Crumble" – and the vocal number "Los Angeles", kind of a hippy dippy tune. Other titles include "The Three Of Us", "Walkabout", "The Children", "The Journey", "Stranded", and "Night In The Outback". CD

Hiero Imperium, 1998. New Copy 3LP Gatefold (reissue)... $33.99 34.98
The classic debut LP from the combined members of the legendary Hieroglyphics collective! For as long as individual members and like Del Tha Funky Homosapien and affiliated groups like Souls Of Mischief had been dominating discussions about Bay Area hip hop, you had to wonder how they'd rein it all in for the a consistent group effort, but it may be that veteran wisdom that makes it such a winning effort. Some of the tracks hew closer to the older Hiero sound introduced by Del and the Souls of Mischief on their classic first couple of LPs, and some of the tracks have a grittier late 90s feel – and it's a consistently strong effort to this day. Features Pep Love, Casual, Del, Tajai, Opio, A Plus and Domino on the mic – and production by Domino, A+, Toure, and J-Biz. Titles include "The Who", "After Dark", "Mics Of The Roundtable", "Off The Record", "You Never Knew", "All Things", "Oakland Blackouts" and more.
