Dallas Acid. Original Soundtrack (flying moonlight, 2016)
Una aventura sonora para descansar y adentrarnos en el espacio profundo, Flying Moonlight es la cuarta producción de la banda resumiendo un proceso de mas de 7 años de música psicodelica en solamente 4 tracks que nos remontan por momentos al krautrock alemán de principios de los 70.
Bird People. Water Buffalo (sloow tapes, 2013) "Uli Rois’ Bird People celestial meditations on the recurring image of the water buffalo in eastern mythology. The animal plays an important role in the myths surrounding the Hindu god of Death Yama, Oya, the goddess of change, and Lao Tsu who left China over the Han Gu Pass on the back of a water buffalo. Abstract guitars and electronics drowning in tanpura drones." Sloow Tapes
Six Organs of Admittance. Dark Noontide (holy mountain, 2002)
"Dark Noontide comes in a notch or two higher with another spectacular merging of dreamy, hypnotic, finger-picked melodies and psychedelia concrète, not to mention some very fine fuzz guitar. Eight incredible tracks that seamlessly blend powerful blues foot-stomp, backwards interludes, strange string feedback, dark, tabla-infused vibrations and the amazing debut of Chasny's electric guitar as a lead instrument." Holy Mountain Take 542!
Una nueva etapa en la carrera de Jesy, musical y social..... un periodo de cambios, de experimentación, de recordar y revivir lo hecho en sus primeras grabaciones como Empire Prism o el trabajo de Popol Vuh..... suena un poco a Anahita y Tara Burke.....
"Apologia was written on a cheap Yamaha guitar over the course a couple of months in 2002 and recorded in February 2003, a few months before I picked up a 12-string guitar and wrote and recorded my first release, ‘Celeste’. I’d just started fingerpicking and felt comfortable enough with some techniques to experiment with open tunings of my own, devising and write my own compositions, which were at that time very inspired by the musicians I adored - John Fahey, Robbie Basho and lots of old country blues players like Mississippi John Hurt, Blind Blake and Reverend Gary Davis."

Vibracathedral Orchestra. Dabbling with Gravity and Who You Are (vhf, 2000)
"Assembled from recordings of their weekly sessions in Michael's kitchen, the tracks here represent the joyous, celebratory side of the VCO - all forward motion, massed strings, percussion, horns, and little instruments rocketing forward in a swirl of sound. Compared to the more austere sounds of recent CD's like "Lino Hi" and "Versatile Arab Chord Chart," the tracks here take off from where the loose hippy chant and drum action of collectives like Amon Duul intersects with the ploygot instrumental approach of mid-60's Sun Ra (ref "Exotic Forest," "Shadow World," etc). "There is no chord formation that can be planned which creates elation or sadness, or any art which is profound enough to change anything fundamental about a person. There is just a resonance around us which musicians/artists are using or not using" Bridget Hayden .
Kali Bahlu. Cosmic Remembrance (merlins nose recordings, 2017)
"First official reissue ever! Includes two bonus tracks and extended linernotes! Gatefold Sleeve. It's1967 and Kali Bahlu felt that it was time to "simply speak the truth as it comes to me from the other side". Her believes that we're all tapped in a cosmic game, and her overall adorable wisdomly folly that she preserved into her old days, could lead to the assumption that she's been the grandmother of characters like Luna Lovegood. The record features four narrations performed by Kali with a bright and sometimes piercing voice in which she unveils her visions to the listener. What awaits you here ain't exactly the typical flower pop with colourful harmonies. This is an entirely different affair. She speaks, screams, laughs and sings with that lovely lunatic expression in her voice on a base of droning music that is a combination of classic Indian raga with sitar and tabla and a few other eruptive sound creating instruments a really mystifying atmosphere. The music and narrations drag you into a colourful world of strange plants and creatures. They tell you enchanted stories of Leprechauns, Fairys, Witches, Lemurian Kings, Angels, and "the Northwind (that) got stoned of marijuana....". Be invited and come along on a journey of Cosmic Remembrance!" Merlins Nose Recordings .
Singer Mali. Ten Paintings / Ten Songs (self released, 2013) "Ten Paintings/Ten Songs is a collaboration between singer/musician Mali Sastri (Singer Mali), and visual artist, Steven Bogart where the thematic jumping off point of “presence” was explored in the creation of songs and paintings that then informed each other." Singer Mali https://www.facebook.com/SingerMali .
"There's something almost supernatural to the feel of the record. "Animator is supposed to be some weird resuscitation. The animator's job is to create the semblance of movement in things that cannot move themselves. The musician's is to make us feel like something is happening with a sound" explains singer and" Dead Oceans
Banda mexicana formada a mediados de los 90's dentro de la escena (sumamente) underground, una época difícil para las bandas independientes pues la distribución de su música literalmente era de mano en mano. Gracias a la era y el boom de la tecnología actual podemos ir rescatando joyas musicales como esta, recién re-editada con el nombre de Dog por Feeding Tube Records.
The Necks. Vertigo (fish of milk, 2015) "The Necks 18th album Vertigo is an eventful, kaleidoscopic tone poem set against a darkly shimmering background. Slowly but inexorably moving forward, it crosses many frontiers yet remains true to the mission and mood established in the opening stanzas of this cinematic 44 minute journey". http://www.thenecks.com/
