EUROCK "Picks to Click"

SERGE BLENNER � MUSIQUE DE CHAMBRE
Music Sample <MdeChambreMP3>
(
CD $18) Add to Cart
.On his brand new album (the 16th since 1982) Serge creates dramatic, symphonic electronic music filled with rhythmic energy, powerful arrangements and effectual touches. In these times of electronic noodling and minimal creativity this album contains music that overflows with imagination, energy & brilliant melodic tone colors.

 

FRANK FIEDLER & GUIDO HIERONYMUS � INSTANT ENLIGHTENMENT
Music Sample <InstantEnlightenmentMP3>
(CD $18) Add to Cart
From Florian Fricke has passed on but in many ways the musical spirit of Popol Vuh lives on in this release by two former members. Fiedler was the long time synth partner/ programmer for Florian and Hieronymus the latter day PV guitarist. Their first Privately released collaboration contains some magical musical moments and warm melodic moments as well.

 

IAN TESCEE � TRAVELER'S GUIDE TO MARS
Music Sample <Traveler'sGuidetoMarsMP3>
(CD $14) Add to Cart
Ian has been one of the top US EM composers since the mid 1980�s when his 1st album IO was released. His brand new release TRAVELER'S GUIDE TO MARS contains music specially composed for the Buhl Planetarium. When it comes to �electronic �music� you�ll not find any better than this, be it multi-layered deep space music or exotic, intoxicating rhythmic/ melodic soundscapes.

 

SAMARKANDE � 3 SYNAPSES
Music Sample <Samarkande3MP3>
(CD $12) Add to Cart

Hailing from Canada, Samarkande's music evokes very early TD &
Kluster as both Lamirande & Fillion display evidence of their roots.
The "music" however is more elaborate and refined + less minimal
and more listenable. It ebbs, flows and explodes to great effect.
Give 3 SYNAPSES as listen and be surprised,

JOHANNES SCHMOELLING � EARLY BEGINNINGS
(CD $22)
Add to Cart
Music Sample <EarlyBeginnings8MP3>
For those who loved Johannes very first 1986 solo album Wuivend Reit these tracks will come as a pleasure. It contains previously unreleased early music from 1979-1985 which hints at the great things that came later musically.

 

MIKE OLDFIELD � MUSIC OF THE SPHERES
(CD $18) Add to Cart Music Sample <MdeSpheres1MP3>
Mike's music has never sounded more majestic or beautiful as it does on this new album. He
composed it for acoustic guitar and symphony and it surely echoes his past work, but also
adds a whole new dimension to his patented majestic, celestial sound. I love it!

 

AGITATION FREE - MALESCH
(CD $19) Add to Cart Music Sample <AFree1MP3>
AGITATION FREE - SECOND
(CD $19) Add to Cart Music Sample <AFree2MP3>
Agitation Free never made a big name for themselves internationally. Nonetheless, these first 2 Agitation Free albums stand the test of time as little known classics from that original era. Now available for the first time, re-mastered from the original tapes, with added bonus tracks, both are uniquely diverse stylistically and musically.

 

PSICODREAMICS � AMBIETHERNUM
(CD $18) Add to Cart Music Sample <PsicodreamicsMP3>
AMBIETHERNUM musically is one of the most powerful and dynamic albums of celestial music I�ve ever heard. Composed of 12 pieces that each thematically plays off of one another, it is a classic excursion into the realm of celestial, melodic space music.

 

RENE AUBRY � PLAY TIME
(
CD $22) Add to Cart Music Sample <AubryMP3>
.From the Epinal region of France, an artist enclave of sorts the French master of eclectic electronic music Rene Aubry's 15th album features recurring themes overflowing with synth, piano, accordion, strings, acoustic guitar, mandoline, bouzouki and lively percussives. The result is a vibrant musical tapestry which is totally unique and enchanting.

 

DAVID WRIGHT � MOMENTUM
(CD $19) Add to Cart Music Sample <DavidWrightMP3>
MOMENTUM is David's work of art to date! It consists of two 35 minute pieces composed of 13 movements featuring inter-twining themes musically full of layered atmospherics, gentle percussives and rippling sequences. A celestial cerebral electronic trip!

It also features a brand new illustrated �comic� by noted American graphic artist Matt Howarth

 

ARC - FRACTURE
(CD $17) Add to Cart

The new ARC album is by far their most sonically sophisticated. Both light and dark melodic themes blend exotically with slow undulating, dense ambient layers of sound and incredible diverse sequential riffs. Mark and Ian deliver their second classic offering this time out.

 

VIOLETA DE OUTONO - VOLUME 7
(CD $18) Add to Cart
 
Music Sample <VDOMP3>

YNEY - ANTARCTINA
Music Samples <Yney MP3>
(Electroshock Records CD $16)  Add to Cart
 
A departure of sorts for Electroshock, Yney seems very influenced by earlier Kraftwerk (before they became totally mechanical). The synthetics are impressionist and minimal, with some very quirky bits of melody and sequential pulsations, with strange twists and turns.
