Their debut album, Sinking Into A Miracle, was...

    Recorded in Rio De Janeiro, and produced by Arto Lindsay (who also appears as co-writer on several tracks, as well as–inimitably–on guitar, in places), Thiago Nassif's Três strikes a balance between lyrical tunes, rock, electronic music and noise. It was born out of Nassif's desire to distil the content of his lyrics into his instrumentation. The...

    Released in 1982, On Land is Eno's most mature, perfect ambient work. Combining low, rumbling synths with eerie banging and clanking and the occasional wild-animal chirp or grumble, this recording places the listener alone, in the midst of a massive piece of sonic landscaping. And Eno has left no detail to chance. In fact, the work is so complete that...
    Awesome compilation that sheds some light on a selection of oddball / DIY / post-punk / synth tunes made in Australia and New Zealand during the 70's and 80's!
    A bigger sound for the follow-up to Snowflakes are Dancing. The organ chords on "Catacombs" were apparently created one note at a time, with up to 6 oscillators per note - perhaps 30 or more VCOs for each chord. Now that's progressive.

    Bureau B focus on archive material from cosmic, space, ambient minimal synth and experimental music from French duo Annanka Raghel and Ivan Coaquette (formerly of Spacecraft and Musica Elettronica Viva).
    Second release from Toresch (aka Toulouse Low Trax and Viktoria Wehrmeister) on Vladimir Ivkovic's idiosyncratic Offen Music. Mid-tempo body music with a grinding, mid-tempo industrial feel offset by Wehrmeister's haunting, Spanish vocal. Incredible and highly original material that gets a huge SOTU recommendation. 
    The blueprint to his work with Talking Heads is on this album. Listen to the jagged guitars, pumping bass and hissing electronic percussion on this and then compare to "More Songs about Buildings and Food". Taking Tiger Mountain like the majority of Eno's output is years ahead of it's time

    Reissued on 180g vinyl! YMO's fifth album, and considered to be the first to use mainly samples and loops to construct songs. This approach was highly experimental at the time but went on to heavily influence popular music's approach to sampling and chopping. Ground-breaking, classic electronic album!
    New album from industrial music pioneers, Esplendor Geométrico who dissolve the sonorities of African, Arab and Asian music with the harder-edged, mechanised rhythms and noise of a contemporary industrial sound. 
    Second studio album from the British alt-rock band, reissued on 180g vinyl.
    The fourth volume of the well received electronic compilation series from the 1980's color tapes label.

    2016 reissue of the cold wave classic "Communication". The album is about the way images determine our view of the world and how electronic media is going to change the content of our society" said legendary ex-Kraftwerk member Karl Bartos when it was released back in 2003. It has now been entirely and pristinely re-mastered for re-release, complete...

The band recorded their first mini-LP, “Kirlian Camera”....
    Recorded in 1995, this neither a reissue or new record, never before released. This is the art-rock works of Mark Hobbs!  It touches upon ragged-raw rock ‘n roll, sumptuous chamber music, pastoral folk, blowsy prog-jazz and paranoid dub-space, effortlessly shifting from skronking abstraction to rousing harmonic refrain and back again.

    Awesome ambient minimalism. This complex sound sculpture was created by Brian Eno in 1978 and was even installed for a while at the Marine Terminal of New York at LaGuardia Airport. The ambient-minimalist soundscape has been alternately described as background Muzak, a profoundly artificial musical milieu, and a groundbreaking studio creation. Eno...
    Ambient music ground zero. First released in Britain in 1975 on his own Obscure Records label, it was an attempt to set up a system by which the music would evolve itself over time. 'Discreet Music' is a piece lasting about 25 minutes. Brian takes two complementary musical phrases, played on a synthesiser, and loops them through his tape delay lines.
    It's a classic. Eno plus brother Roger and Daniel Lanois created this classic 'soundtrack' to the Apollo space mission footage. Minimal but beautiful tunes.
    If you have heard of 'ambient' music and are wondering about buying an album, look no further. relaxing, easily listenable and along with Music For Films II a great collection of pieces. Amateur or professional film directors look no further for some decent background music. To paraphrase a well known advert, 'it does what it says on the cover'. Turn...
