  1. I woulda thunk that bagpipes or vuvuzela woulda been top of the banned instruments list, not the lubberly saxamaphone 😄 --Geoff
  2. Rush - Xanadu -- it's not a cover of a Livvy song, but still: the double neck guitars, the robes, the stashes ... it's all wonderfully over the top 70s proggy hard rock --Geoff
  3. Phobium - Khronikos -- a 50 minute trip of acid bleeps and sequencers. "Name Yer Price" lossless download from Bandcamp. --Geoff
  4. Speedy J - !ive -- goin' a bit old school on me morning commute. This is from the heady days of the mid 1990s. Fookin excellent stuff, mixing techno, ambient, and a bit of acid. Essential if you were into Underworld and Orbital at the time. --Geoff
  5. Arvo Pärt - Alina -- the obvious pre-cursor of the A Winged Victory For The Sullen album above (I reckon they are even paying homage to the album cover). Only two pieces, but with a variety of arrangements. I dare anyone not to get lachrymose when listening to piano and violin version of Spiegel Im Spiegel (so effective it was used in the finale of U.S. TV sitcom The Good Place recently and I flipped out to hear some Arvo on the telly). --Geoff
  6. Various Artists - Midnight Radio: Noir Jazz Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 -- compilations of slow, dark, smoky jazz, with lonely saxophones wailing into the dark mysterious night, a bit like a never-ending Twin Peaks dream sequence. Both are "Name Yer Price" lossless downloads from Bandcamp. --Geoff
  7. Marco Lucchi - Haiku -- a mix of spiky electronics, cello, and strings. "Name Yer Price" lossless download from Bandcamp. --Geoff
  8. I got this CD on the weekend for $1 ... dunno what I think of it ... the songs seem to be made of bits of other Pink Floyd songs (notably Mother, Sheep, the vocal echo echo echo from Dogs, and even Have A Cigar). Gunna take more listens, methinks. --Geoff
  9. God Is An Astronaut - All is Violent, All is Bright -- first album from Oirish post rockers. Manages to avoid most of the trappings of the genre with concise and melodic songcraft, kinda like a they recorded a bunch of alterna-pop songs but forgot there was no vocalist. "Name Yer Price" lossless download from Bandcamp. --Geoff
  10. Cousin Silas - In Dub -- dubby excursions from a bloke wot usually dabbles in ambient sounds. I bought this a while back, but now it's a "Name Yer Price" lossless download from Bandcamp, for all to enjoy. --Geoff
  11. Gawd ... Fluke ... used to play Fluke a lot back in the day ... sorta similar to Underworld in some ways. I think that Oto has a couple of cracking tunes ... Bullet IIRC. --Geoff
  12. If yer into 80s Yes then surely 90125 or Drama should be getting plenty of plays, too. Do you have those albums? --Geoff
  13. Sven Laux - Paper Streets -- a mix of piano, strings, and drones. €1 for the lossless download from Bandcamp. --Geoff
  14. Stick Men - 20180311 Sono Centrum -- a sound board recording from 2018, from the Stick Men, wot includes Tony Levin and Pat Mastelotto from King Crimson, plus Markus Reuter on guitar. Expect a lot of proggy technical music, including the occasional King Crimson number. Free lossless download from Bandcamp. --Geoff
  15. Aaron Martin - Test Subjects -- a short (14 mins) EP of solo cello. "Name Yer Price" lossless download from Bandcamp. --Geoff
