Bill has created one of the most enduring "biographical" albums ever pressed. It cuts right to the heart of the man and his struggles with life.
when the bough breaks
Minimal Brass is a new beginning for this remarkable maverick, a fabulous suite incorporating sound, noise and texture into a swirling masterpiece of overdubbed trumpets. Circular breathing, French philosophy and soulful lyricism from one of modern music's lost masters." FORCED EXPOSURE
''Physically and musically, Randy Weston casts a long shadow. For five decades, this six-foot-seven-inch tall pianist/composer has used the 20th century African Diaspora artform of jazz to manifest a musical free zone that exalts the spirits, rhythms, hopes, dreams, dignity, and beauty of the people who are darker than blue.''

one eye watching
Night Town Service’s first EP was released on July 2nd, 2008. Entitled “One Eye Watching”, it features music by Jon Wilks (formerly of The Loving Oven & Cut Flowers, occasional member of The Grizzly Folk), and it is performed with Miwa Yahagi (vocalist from tailor made for a small room, and Lost in Found). The pair recorded the collection in Fukuoka and Tokyo, exchanging files over the internet. They didn’t meet in person until after the recording was finished.
less than human
The Juan Maclean takes the mechanized side of music, the Kraftwerk precision and automated bass, but injects it with a personal, human vision and unmet, unwanted desires. When people talk about emotional electronic music, they too often go for adjectives like "warm" and "organic," but neither term accurately applies to Maclean's creations. In his perfectly-crafted self-expression (created, surprisingly by live musicians) Maclean drives further and further into holes, even as his inanimate instruments beg you to get to the dancefloor.STYLUS
"Interiors" explores a much more subtle side to Ativin's sound, creating stark and meloncholy guitar driven songs for wintery days and cold, foggy nights.INSOUND
''the trio of Berne, Baron and Roberts, used "electronic processing" and veered towards futuristic ethno-jazz-funk music on Miniature''
''This album takes all kinds of eighties synth sounds, throws them in a blender, and adds a huge amount of surreal humour.''
''This music is powerful, beautiful, driving rock with a chant-like, hypnotic element. It builds on itself like a mantra''
''Opulent and lovestruck, it's a stunning record, not just for the way it decorates the Cologne sound with orange-y hues and elastic textures, but for the way it integrates them with a whole mess of newly introduced elements-- ambient collage, cabaret, and even glam.''PITCHFORK
HERE COMES LOVE
''the result retains the atmospheric esoterica of cLOUDDEAD and the candid quirkiness of Broder's Fog releases, yet also features an interesting and unique interplay.''PITCHFORK

Possibly the most complete collection of Techno classics you will ever have the pleasure of laying your hands on, "Innovator" has long been one of the most sought after and priceless R&S releases ever.BOOMKAT
The Sea II
"quintessential ECM tone poem music, with leader Bjørnstad's rubato and occasionally rhapsodic pianism cast very much in an adagio mould. Poetic and pensive in its rippling moods and keening delivery, with Darling's cello striking a typically meditative note, Christensen rolling and floating across barlines with customary sensitivity and imagination, and plangent passages of extraordinary, soaring intensity from Rypdal."

don't drink his blood
The music sounds like the album's cover art looks -- drawn in crayon with the simplicity and sweetness of a 5-year-old. But this is where the musical description gets complicated; while it recalls childhood innocence because it sounds so light and lovely, it is so much more complex and perfectly whole. PREFIXMAG.COM

Arthur Russell holds a unique place in the history of dance music. As an artist he had the admiration of everyone from Philip Glass to Todd Terry. As well as his solo work he also formed the seminal groups Dinosaur L and Loose Joints in the 1980s. With tracks such as "Go Bang" and "Is It All Over My Face?", Russell redefined Dance music in the 1980s as both an intelligent and subversive form.This is the first collected work of Arthur Russell who has been for many years one of the most respected iconic artists in the history of dance music.
As a kind of protest against the murder of the bear Bruno, Gruenrekorder asks for transmittals. The tracks should be 0:30-3:00 minutes of length. Gruenrekorder will post them on the net, where they will be available for free downloading (Creative Commons License). The project is ment to become an acoustical memorial, to prevent us from forgetting Bruno’s senseless death. Therefore we’d very much appreciate transmittals! With acoustic greetings, the Gruenrekorder Team.

songs and themes
Songs and Themes is a visionary fusion of jazz, electronica and chamber music. With its eighth contribution to the Thirsty Ear Records catalog, the production team of Ashley Wales and multi-instrumentalist John Coxon has truly outdone itself. Songs and Themes is ambient and atmospheric while still maintaining a link to the avant-garde. ALL ABOUT JAZZ
Jumping Fences was backed with 3 new songs, Optical Atlas, The Language Of Stationary Travellers and Green Typewriters (Outer Themes And Explorations). The latter of these included contributions from Scott Spillane ( The Gerbils, Neutral Milk Hotel) and Bryan Helium (Late B.P. Helium).
The twisted avant-jazz of Phillip Johnston first reared its head during the early '80s, when the composer and saxophonist was a staple of the downtown New York City underground music scene. There, he performed with a variety of artists both in and out of the jazz community, among them John Zorn, Eugene Chadbourne, Elliott Sharp, Wayne Horvitz, Butch Morris, and the dB's. He is a founding member of the Microscopic Septet and, after its demise, went on to lead Phillip Johnston's Big Trouble and Phillip Johnston's Transparent Quartet. In addition to commissioned works in conjunction with a number of theatrical and dance productions, Johnston earned notoriety for his eclectic film work, scoring pictures by directors including Doris Dorrie, Philip Haas, and Paul Mazursky-Jason Ankeny, All Music Guide

Released at the tail end of the '60s, Hot Buttered Soul set the precedent for how soul would evolve in the early '70s, simultaneously establishing Isaac Hayes and the Bar-Kays as major forces within black music. Though not quite as definitive as Black Moses or as well-known as Shaft, Hot Buttered Soul remains an undeniably seminal record; it stretched its songs far beyond the traditional three-to-four-minute industry norm, featured long instrumental stretches where the Bar-Kays stole the spotlight, and it introduced a new, iconic persona for soul with Hayes' tough yet sensual image. With the release of this album, Motown suddenly seemed manufactured and James Brown a bit too theatrical. Surprising many, the album features only four songs. The first, "Walk on By," is an epic 12-minute moment of true perfection, its trademark string-laden intro just dripping with syrupy sentiment, and the thumping mid-tempo drum beat and accompanying bassline instilling a complementary sense of nasty funk to the song; if that isn't enough to make it an amazing song, Hayes' almost painful performance brings yet more feeling to the song, with the guitar's heavy vibrato and the female background singers taking the song to even further heights. The following three songs aren't quite as stunning but are still no doubt impressive: "Hyperbolicsyllabicsequedalymistic" trades in sappy sentiment for straight-ahead funk, highlighted by a stomping piano halfway through the song; "One Woman" is the least epic moment, clocking in at only five minutes, but stands as a straightforward, well-executed love ballad; and finally, there's the infamous 18-minute "By the Time I Get to Phoenix" and its lengthy monologue which slowly eases you toward the climactic, almost-orchestral finale, a beautiful way to end one of soul's timeless, landmark albums, the album that transformed Hayes into a lifelong icon

apocalypsis disc 1
apocalypsis disc 2
Swedenborg's theory of redemption rejected any notion that Jesus Christ was in himself a divine person, but it held that the inmost soul of Jesus was divine. This divine soul had taken on a human form from Mary, and Jesus' human nature had been glorified by his exemplary life. By resisting all the temptations and ills of the powers of darkness, Jesus had opened a way for divine life to flow into all mankind. Man had become free to know truth and to be able to obey its dictates. Human salvation lay in this knowledge and obedience.
Swedenborg defended his theological speculation by claiming it resulted from a divine call. He maintained that he had received special light from God. He also maintained that all of his exegetical and philosophical treatises constituted a new revelation from God. Mankind must live according to this revelation in order to usher in a new age of reason and truth.

On August 6, 1945, the Enola Gay, a U.S. B-29 bomber, drops the first atomic weapon ever used in combat on the Japanese city of Hiroshima. Within minutes, the massive blast and the firestorm it produced destroyed most of the city and killed an estimated 70,000 people, a third of Hiroshima's population.
Keep away from heat... release this EP just days prior to the 63rd anniversary. As you would expect with the subject matter, despite only being two tracks long, these two tracks are emotional journeys which, manage to explore some of the sounds in Predrag Nedic' repertoire.
