A quick re-share from our defunct private club. And you read it right: that's "doc" Umezu (hello, Lucky) with Acid Mothers Temple SWR, the most recent Kawabata's project which includes none other than Tatsuya Yoshida (Ruins, Koenjihyakkei, dozens of others). I must say, however, this album still haven't "stick" in me, despite having listened to it a few times. To me it sounds more like a private conversation to which you were not exactly invited (you wonder how this album passed so unnoticed). Nevertheless, it's a fantastic collab from Japanese avant masters.

holy fuck. if john carpenter was scoring a giallo, then this would be somewhere close to that. scored by brian may (not the dude from queen!) who also did the soundtrack for mad max, this is definitely one to get! haven't seen this australian horror film, but i love anything cheesy from the late seventies/early eighties, so definitely will be renting soon.

wow. coming out in the early 70's kanada, what a bizarre album... the internet says he's influenced by cage, eno, stravinsky, & charles ives. dunno about that, but i do hear wisps of woo, mort garson, broadcast, iasos, harry forbes, ariel kalma & k leimer. if any of those names do anything for you, you NEED to download this. beautiful synth augmented by strings & woodwinds. this is a 320 of the lion reissue, so yeah. yr welcome.

figured since i shared the richard pinhas a coupla days ago, why not share something by his earlier band, heldon? this is ridiculously amazing weirdo psych prog with early electronics layered on top. if you listened to chronolyse & were blown away, wait till you hear this.
ps this is the expanded japanese version, forgot to write that last night.

at the intersection of kraut histrionics, classic rock wizadry & proggish tendencies lies the fourth album from sensations' fix. took me a while to get into this, not quite as immediate as fragments of light. definitely a grower, but hey, any sensations' fix album is %95 better than most shit out there. not to sound overly verbose here, franco falsini is a guitar genius.

This was supposed to be a inspirational gift for our friend and host Ryan, but the latest happenings made me want to extend this blessing to whoever needs it
David Darling isn't a ethnomusicologist per se, and I'm sure this record doesn't quite qualify as true Ethno due to his arrangements and cello additions. However, the polyphonic chants of the Bunun, a Taiwanese tribe, echo magnificently. If there's hope yet to be found in this ever rotting world, ceiled by ever dimming stars, it creeps around woods, deserts, mountains and islands untouched, sovereign reign of animist gods.
