Tetratne
It is surely significant that both Lovens and Stoffner use all four limbs to control their instrument. Lower limbs used principally to play bass drum and hi-hat in the case of Lovens, volume control and effects pedal for Stoffner. Right and left limbs, right and left brain hemispheres  It is not surprising that there is plenty going on in their music. “Whatever happened to the Art of the Individual?!” Han Bennink once asked rhetorically to a crowded backstage.  Well here it is, alive and well an…

Spirits Rejoice & Bells - Revisited
Together, ‘Spirits Rejoice’ and ‘Bell’s encapsulate a four month period where long-gestating ideas of Ayler’s were birthed, helping to usher in a conception of music unlike virtually anything else extant, paving the way for his own adventures of the next several years and, perhaps more importantly, providing an extremely fertile bed for a generation or two of musicians to come. – Brian Olewnick Albert Ayler’s recording career was a short one, spanning only the years 1962 – 1970, yet he went thro…

Kimmeltie (LP)
"This record makes your speakers drip with rainwater. The room fills up with mist and you can feel a warm breeze. Little sparks of magic float in the air, and the room spins 360 degrees with every chord played on the piano. It feels like the windows and doors are suddenly wide open, and the outdoors pour in. The chairs and the sofa turn into the ledges of Kiasma. It might be a dream, a memory, or a leap through time. There are stars above the sea of clouds." - Olli Aarni

Rituals of Transition (CD + Booklet)
In 2002 Misha Mengelberg was invited for the second time to the AngelicA Festival in Bologna. That edition, the twelfth, took part entirely in a squatted social centre of the city, and, in collaboration with Tristan Honsinger, was conceived as one large opera lasting six days – an opera within which the performances of many national and international artists fitted in like individual mobile “modules”. Especially for this occasion and on the festival director’s suggestion, who had attended a perf…

Front To Front (LP)
* Edition of 300 * It took a while before Fred Van Hove and Peter Brötzmann reached their spot on the stage of the Summer Bummer Festival in 2019.

While the audience started applauding and cheering all the other participating artists of the festival – amongst them good folk li…

Autobahn (coloured LP)
**180g translucent blue vinyl, Includes full-size 12-page booklet and picture inner sleeve.** The fourth studio album by the German electronic band. It was the band's first album to fully embrace the repetitive electronic sound they would become known for, although organic instruments still remained part of their sonic palette, and was inspired by the titular German highway system."Though they'd recorded three previous albums, Kraftwerk's modern pop legacy starts with the sounds of a few footste…

Trans Europe Express (coloured LP)
**180g clear vinyl, Includes full-size 12-page booklet and picture inner sleeve.** "Although Autobahn was a left-field masterpiece, Trans-Europe Express is often cited as perhaps the archetypal (and most accessible) Kraftwerk album. Melodic themes are repeated often and occasionally interwoven over deliberate, chugging beats, sometimes with manipulated vocals; the effect is mechanical yet hypnotic. Thematically, the record feels like parts of two different concept albums: one a meditation on the…

The Man-Machine (coloured LP)
**180g translucent red vinyl, Includes full-size 12-page booklet and picture inner sleeve.** "The Man-Machine is closer to the sound and style that would define early new wave electro-pop - less minimalistic in its arrangements and more complex and danceable in its underlying rhythms. Like its predecessor, Trans-Europe Express, there is the feel of a divided concept album, with some songs devoted to science fiction-esque links between humans and technology, often with electronically processed vo…
