New Music for Electronic and Recorded Media
Marking its first decade of activity, Blume returns with the first ever vinyl reissue of the seminal “New Music for Electronic and Recorded Media”, from 1977, the third and final instalment in a suite of releases that includes James Tenney’s “Postal Pieces” and Ben Vida’s “Vocal Trio”. Unquestionably among the most important collections of experimental music to emerge during the 20th Century, “New Music for Electronic and Recorded Media” is the original feminist presentation in its context, rele…
Saint Of The Pit
The Saint of the Pit, Diamanda Galás’ fifth studio album and the second in her trilogy, The Masque of the Red Death, is an urgent record. Its theme is essentially passion, in the sense of suffering, although here, and unlike the passion of Christianity, there is little to offer solace. Re-released on Galás’ own Intravenal Sound Operations (ISO) after its initial release on Mute in November 1986, The Saint and the Pit is a masterpiece of witnessing, forged from grief and fury during the HIV-AIDS …
Broken Allures
"Broken Allures", the fifth release from trio Jac Berrocal, David Fenech, and Vincent Epplay (following releases on Blackest Ever Black, Akuphone, KlangGalerie), furthers their unique recording style with a musique concrète approach to mixing, characterized by the distinctive sound and technique of musicians and producers. Fenech and Epplay have paired with legendary French musician Berrocal, renowned for his collaborations with Nurse With Wound, Vince Taylor, Jaki Liebezeit, Pascal Comelade, Su…
The Road Was Bent From The Way We Took It

This new album represents the first release under his own name.
Topology of a Quantum City
"A couple of years back, during a period of frequent relocation, and with no permanent studio set up, I came across the original DAT parts of a project I completed in 1992 just before I moved from Australia to The UK. The sessions for New Maps Of Hell evolved out of a rhythm track I’d built in my studio. I was (and still am) fascinated the twin, revolutionary, 70’s phenomena of electric jazz (Miles, Hancock, Williams, Priester) and Krautrock (Can, Faust, Tangerine Dream). I was trying as a solo …
The Telescopic Aulos of Atlas
Lukas de Clerck brings the telescopic aulos, which his new interpretation of long-form expression coaxed forth on this tremendous recording. Lukas de Clerck explores a niche of archaeological research in music; the aulos is a historical Greek instrument that Lukas analyzed and reinterpreted by a luthier in modern times—navigating this impression as an artwork or living sculptural object, as there is an absence of historical partitions or written information about how to recreate technique on the…
St. Albert's Dream, Volume 3: The Alchemist's Phormula
The third release in the highly acclaimed St. Albert’s Dream series once again brings you some of the rarest and most obscure underground psychedelic cuts from 1968-1972. This time round, the Alchemist has mixed a “phormula” to take you on a deep underground trip of fuzzed-out psychedelic intensity, by creating elixirs of chemical-based sounds to remedy your psychedelic needs. You’ll hear a morbid swirling organ and guitar-driven tale of love lost from Mississippi’s Flower Power, heavy powerful …
At Carnegie Hall
Unearthed in 2005 by staff at the Library of Congress, At Carnegie Hall is an incredible performance delivered on 29 November 1957 by jazz giants Monk and Coltrane, together with bassist Ahmed Abdul-Malik and drummer Shadow Wilson. Far superior to that captured at the Five Spot five months earlier, At Carnegie Hall shows Coltrane finding his own sax sphere as Monk explores the limits of experimental excursions on the keyboard; Monk is in his element on ‘Crepuscule With Nellie’ and Trane shows hi…
Voyage (A Journey Into Discoid Funk)
2023 Repress. Isle of Jura's first LP reissue is the highly sought after Voyage - A Journey Into Discoid Funk by Brian Bennett, originally released in 1978. A cosmic disco classic completely re-mastered from the original master tapes by Matt Colton. Brian Bennett is best known as the drummer of the UK band The Shadows and as a composer of music for Films and TV.

*2024 repress!* Legendary German post-rock band formed in 1971 by undisputed noise pioneer Uwe Nettelbeck, Faust garnered an immediate following due to its artistically extreme experimentations with music cut ups and other mixed sources hinging on cacophony and distortion. Don't miss their 1971 cult classic debut, now reissued with its original clear printed sleeve on 180 gram clear vinyl. Allmusic critic Archie Patterson lauded the band's accomplishment, writing that 'The impact of Faust cannot…
San Francisco
San Francisco is an album by jazz vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson and saxophonist Harold Land, released on the Blue Note label in May 1971. The album features a shift away from the usual hard bop-post-bop style pursued previously by Hutcherson and Land, and shifts towards jazz fusion.
Destination... Out!
"Of all of McLean's Blue Note dates, so many of which are classic jazz recordings, Destination Out! stands as the one that reveals the true soulfulness and complexity of his writing, arranging, and 'singing' voice." - All Music
*2024 stock. 300 copies limited edition* "A three-armed entity consisting of Sagat, &Apos, and Walrus - Bepotel build sonic landscapes. Hazy or sparkling, their sound is a portal to digital emotions, their interpretations of widescreen sympathy, lukewarm spandex conviviality, of miscalculated disorder. With previous releases for Meakusma, the Brussels-based label/artist-platform Lamadameaveclechien, a remix for Shock Corridor on Testoon, as well as a plethora of releases on their own eponymous i…
*2024 stock* "Vibraphonist, singer and producer Roy Ayers is a master of many musical styles and genres, from acid-jazz, jazz-funk to romantic ballads and dance tracks. While many of his contemporaries seemed to fail when they tried different sounds, Ayers always made sure a certain of musicality and identity was apparent in all of his work. In 1970 Ayers signed Polydor Records and released Ubiquity which had Ayers in a looser and a less formal atmosphere. Even at its loosest, Atlantic still had…
R M H Q: Headquarters
*2024 stock* It’s been over a decade since Roy Montgomery’s last album, and R M H Q is a hell of a return. This release contains four distinct records of new material. Listening to any of his work is a visceral experience—repeating phrases swell and decay, immersing the listener in the cyclical narrative of his compositions. Montgomery was in his rock band period in the eighties, when the dark, minimalist post-punk of The Pin Group lead into the gloriously open-ended freedoms of Dadamah. After a…
Gravado Ao Vivo No Maracanãzinho
*2024 stock * Recorded live at the Maracanãzinho gymnasium in 1974 for a TV Globo special and released in 1980. Good quality considering the time and the precariousness of Brazilian technology. Lot for the improvisations and the totally Rock'n Roll feel. This phrase stolen from the band's Orkut community says it all: "If, at that time, a mother ship had landed, for example, in the Praça dos Três Poderes in Brasília and dumped some aliens through its doors, it wouldn't have caused such an impact,…
Vocal Trio
Marking its first decade of activity, Blume returns with the composer Ben Vida’s “Vocal Trio”. An intoxicatingly beautiful, groundbreaking work of compositional conceptualism - combining the ideas of systems based synthesis with real-time vocal collaboration - the album represents a striking step forward for one of the most ambitious and outstanding sonic artists working in the United States today. Mastered by Stephan Mathieu.
Glimpses Of Infinity
Black Vinyl Edition. An overview of Laraaji’s earliest works, Glimpses of Infinity gathers selections from his 1978 debut Celestial Vibration and six additional studio sessions from the era. Segue To Infinity (Glimpse) is a peek into the very start of Laraaji’s remarkable catalog, a small piece of the upcoming 4LP Segue To Infinity — his 1978 debut when he was still known as Edward Larry Gordon, Celestial Vibration, and six more side-long studio sessions from recently discovered acetates from th…
Midnite Blues
*300 copies limited edition. Screenprinted artwork on old re-used cover jackets + insert.* Another transatlantic collaborative project on Förlag För Fri Musik, this time Blod teams up with Shadow Pattern from Canada. A seemingly impossible match that somehow works like a charm, the lo-fi folk of Gustaf Dicksson beautifully tangled up with the brutish concrete music of Nathan Ivanco. Recorded in the the winter of 2024 in Gothenburg, Sweden and Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. Mixed and arranged by Nath…
