Watch Devil Go
* Deluxe reissue, with obi strip + 8 page booklet, 180g vinyl *To write these few lines, we spoke to saxophonist François Jeanneau, an old friend of Jacques Thollot who also played on several of his albums, including the “Watch Devil Go” which interests us here.

* Deluxe reissue, with obi strip + 4 page booklet, 180g vinyl* In November 1976, Jef Gilson’s phone rang. What a surprise!

Rahoerson announced that he was in Paris for a few days.  Immediately, Jef wanted to organise a recording session, starting the next day. He thought of a trio including Serge, Eddy Louiss on organ and cellist Jean-Charles Capon, who ha…

Abba (2CD)
Tip! ** A massive new double album from Blod and the first CD-only release on Discreet Music. In the artists' own words: "ABBA was recorded during the summer of 2021 in my garage in Mölndal outside of Gothenburg. I believe the album has some kind of loner ambient lo-fi vibe all over it. I have tried to create a warm feeling permeated by longing and loneliness. It's far from a happy album and it contains no hit songs, but I think there is a feeling of hope present throughout both discs." Edition …

Morning and Evening Ragas Vol. 2 (LP)
**100 copies** in Pat Murano's words: in 2014, I lost my way. The path that I confidently strode my entire adult life was abruptly lost to a chaotic bramble of sadness, doubt and loss. After a few years of being truly unable to engage with my music, I began a new practice. The idea was to immerse myself in the surrounding incidental environmental sounds, beginning my music there. In retrospect, I can now fully appreciate why this appealed to me so deeply. This ritual was an attempt to attune mys…
