This duo where pioneers in the electronica cum new age genre coxing exotic "dream spun" wind blown instrumentation meet analog synth beautitude. Its a shame their first few albums where never pressed on cd Sound Trek with guest John Serrie and... See full review

Never been a fan of Blind Faith and even much less so inclined with Spencer Davis but Barleycorn really shook the foundation with the funky and freeform airy instrumental Glad. Ive always enjoyed Mr. Winwood's "lesser" pop material ie when he is... See full review
posted a review of Brigeen Doran's Kjol* with Fernando Saunders - Sunny Day. 7 days ago
Damn and I mean it damn fine fusion with Fernando Saunders in the mix. I would have to say this has a definitive Weather Report influence not only from the bass perspective but the drumming, world-less vox and synth workings. A very strong melodic... See full review

I read your post comparing varying degrees "queso" to techno pop thru the pioneering decades 70/80's. What a creative read and sharp as a good Wisconsin cheddar!
posted a review of Harold Budd - The Oak Of The Golden Dreams. 13 days ago
These two tracks CAN be found on a CD compilation of the same name ie The Oak Of The Golden Dreams. Worth trying to get a hold of as these are the earliest Budd compositions. If I recall one track is pure synth drone buzzy, hypnotic monotone and... See full review
posted a review of Bebo Baldan Featuring Steve James* - Vapor Frames 86/91. 14 days ago
Bebo admittedly takes his cues from Harold Budd and Eno but adds his own stylistic imprint mainly thru the use of a neo-tribal percussive edge. He accomplishes this mainly thru the uses of electronics such as drum machines, synthesizers, sarod and... See full review

I partially agree with We.Have.Explosive's comments this IS a melancholy album BUT it is also a beautifully orchestrated slice of prog synth heaven. The average Genesis head will definitively pick up the "Wind & Wuthering" sound that in the mid to... See full review

Still the best Autechre album hands down(and not alone in my opinion!). Bubbly, dubby, bassy, electro funky goodness yet unpretentious forward thinking(albeit the electro influence!). I wish they had pursued more of this "groove" focused music for a... See full review

This project debut is a timeless slice of downtempo, slow churning textured electronica thats hard to top. I was not displeased with the follow-up for many a reason but mainly because they held to the style of the debut however it did not impact me on... See full review

Agree 110% its a unique one but as I am sure his fans wanted the same ol' same ol' did not sell well. I still think he was pushing himself into some diverse territories when this album was release. The overall feel is dusty, warm and still mysterious.... See full review

I just picked this one up from a kind Discogs seller and as a long time aficionado of Gio's Makyo project and Dakini labels Ochi Brothers I have to say this is a little of both. The music starts off sparse with soft flowing synths building a beautiful... See full review

As yet another side of the genius of Atom Heart aka Ewe Schmidt. In the style of Lustmord tho perhaps a little less "dark" but all drones marinated in reverb and a mashup of studio processing. This can almost pass as space music as it does have a sort... See full review

Weird cut up looped poetry reading advertisements, synths, drum boxes, strummed guitar. A really odd oddity of experimental music from Australia. There are some Krautrock/Kosmische elements mashed into a continuum of bleep, bloop drone guitar and... See full review

Unless it is ambient glitch electronica then the pops and clicks add to the glamor of said hipsters position on an archaic and over rated medium!

A year later and you still cannot answer whether it was a legit issue? As this genre of music is a microcosm many of us are very happy to have this STILL rare new age music on cd so a needle drop will suffice.

Wow interesting insight on this track which aside from Blinded by the Light where the only 2 tracks anyone here in the US knows from MMEB. Criminal Tango was criminally underrated I for one enjoy it as much as the classic Solar Fire.
