La grande vallee / Micro-climat (LP)
"I wonder if my fascination for clouds (without being an obsession) may have risen at the end of the '80s as, whilst composing 'Micro-climat', I would regularly wander between the Vercors mountains and the high plateaus of the Monts du Forez discovering, through my eyes, body, breath, active observation and walk, that natural forms when constantly changing and yet swollen with a unity of matter (in this instance, water) open one up to a deep, fundamental breath and a clear field for the mind. Th…

Rhapsodia / Battements Solaires (LP)
"Michèle Bokanowski's art is one of densities, much like the density of a given color, a given depth. Her sound textures are, indeed, profound, both in the space occupied by their frequencies and the sharp temporal trail they leave behind. Here lies the composer's immense talent that finds the right development for each sound, letting it blossom before altering it, adapting the musical structure to let the sounds 'be', even if it sometimes means returning to the most basic form, such as a loop. …

Word Jazz (LP)
Ken Nordine was a spoken-word artist strongly influenced by jazz and this is his 1957 debut album album. A Highly eclectic mix of smooth voice narration, sort of zen-beatnik texts and West Coast Jazz arrangements as results of a fruitful collaboration with cellist Fred Katz group featuring the likes of Paul Horn on sax, flute and clarinet, and Chico Hamilton on drums and percussion. Still an innovative piece of work between spoken word, poetry and Jazz.

The Moviegoer (LP)
Produced in summer 1972 and released in autumn of the same year by Phillips Records, this is one of the most obscure and controversial albums in Scott Walker's discography. The album was poorly received by critics and if we exclude a 1975 reissue on Contour Label, it has since been deleted till this very welcomed re-release. The Moviegoer is a declared journey through Pop arrangements of iconic film music themes. The album includes mainstream oriented version of classic themes like Nino Rota's l…

Beach Music (LP)

Often working as a duo consisting of Joakim Karlsson and Mai Nestor, Facit released a couple of fantastic EPs between 2013 and 2016.

Recorded by Joakim Karlsson alone at the island of Hönö in the west coast archipleggio outside of Gothenburg in the summer of 2020, B…

The Habu (LP)
**Edition of 300 copies** Poole Music is thrilled to announce its inaugural commission, the Habu, the latest full-length from Belgium’s Lieven Martens. For the better part of two decades, Martens has been expanding his Aloha-bedecked musical vision, transitioning from the basement tape environments of his Dolphins into the Future project to the rich compositional tapestries of more recent post-exotica modernist works.  The Habu represents a true culmination of these identities in one of his most…

Kaleidoscope Of Rainbows: Live '75 ‎(2CD)
Double CD Edition. Previously unreleased. Recorded live at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, London, on the 20th October 1975.

Otherwise, this album is presented exactly as the audience …
