Black Tape for a Blue Girl - The Scavenger Bride

Cover art I really wanted to like this one. I’d read about Black Tape, and they sounded interesting: female vocals fronting ethereal, classical-inflected music with a kind of Gothic mood, but not the heavy...  » Read more

Bob Drake - The Skull Mailbox

Cover art Bob Drake may be a genius, but it is fair to say that, as far as the results of his craft go, he is more than a bit scatterbrained. The Skull Mailbox is chock full of ideas, often more than...  » Read more

Frágil - Sorpresa del Tiempo

Cover art

While they are relatively unknown in most of the world, Frágil must be quite popular in their homeland of Peru. Case in point: this live reunion CD from a concert in 1999, recorded with a...

Hemisphere - Attachment X

Cover art

Henry Cow - Western Culture

Cover art By the time they got to 1978 and the recording of Western Culture, Henry Cow were in the process of breaking apart. Fortunately for us, they saw the project through to its completion, for it...  » Read more

Here and Now - Give and Take

Cover art Here and Now are very heavily patterned in the mold of Radio Gnome era Gong, complete with silly vocals, but luckily they also borrow from Gong’s best features, with some great guitar solos...  » Read more

Hereward Kaye - Golden Mile

Cover art

Singer/songwriter Hereward Kaye is something of a mystery even in his homeland, the UK. The artist has crafted thirteen pieces somewhat reminiscent of Elton John's renaissance era with a style...

Imagin'Aria - La Tempesta

Cover art

La Tempesta opens with a bit of an attitude, with an in-your-face rocker that almost manages to betray their distant past as a metal band while not really being a metal song. Forming in...

IZZ - I Move

Cover art

Progressive rock fans seem to be split into two distinct camps when it comes to this kind of prog. IZZ operate in the same general area as Spock’s Beard – a rather poppish modern take...

Jewlia Eisenberg - Trilectic

Cover art

It’s probably stating the obvious to say that fans of Charming Hostess and (to some degree) Sleepytime Gorilla Museum are likely to enjoy this release as well. Eisenberg is one of the...

Kelly David - Broken Voyage

Kryptästhesie - No Age

Cover art

I’m not going to get into any generalizations about whether Italian bands can be any good at psychedelia – certainly examples can be found at all levels of quality. This release from...

La Maschera di Cera - La Maschera di Cera

Cover art
