Nearly 30 years after Steve Forbert established himself as a singer/songwriter to watch, his muse doesn't appear to be contacting him as often as it once did, and while there was a three-year layoff between 2007's Strange Names and New Sensations and his previous album, the results suggests Forbert was hard-put to come up with something to say during the preceding 36 months.

Responsible for two of the strangest, most beguiling acid folk albums of the early 1970s, jan dukes de grey have long been a legendary name on the prog/folk/psych collector circuit. When cherry tree reissued sorcerers and the extraordinary mice and rats in the loft on one handy double cd last year (to widespread acclaim, we might add), it seemed to be the final word on the band. However, during conversations with arch-duke derek noy the bands founder, guitarist, singer and songwriter it transpired that jan dukes had actually gone on to record a third album, strange terrain, that had failed to appear at the time, largely due to the emergence of punk and the ensuing collapse of western civilisation as we know it.

Hot on the heels of two decidedly un-Hawkwind-y singles; following in the footsteps, too, of the defiantly transitory Astounding Sounds, Amazing Music album, Quark Strangeness and Charm was the first full flowering of Hawkwind's newly honed drive towards brittle pop, sharp wit, and crystal-clear intent – attributes that, if they'd ever existed in the past, had been entirely overwhelmed by the sheer grandeur of the space rock rocket blast. Now it was the propulsive riffs and deep space echoes that were held in abeyance, and Quark opened as it meant to go on, with "Spirit of the Age"'s tight keyboards, unobtrusive washes, and the utterly captivating – if totally skewed – story of love across the light years.

It was an indicative situation for Numan's commercial fortunes at the time: A year after the Strange Charm album appeared to little attention outside his dedicated fan base, the Exhibition greatest-hits comp appeared, returning him to the charts with a remix of "Cars." Not one to look a gift horse in the mouth – and also riding a bit of a wave with his participation in the Radio Heart project – Numan took to the road, producing another live album with Ghost.

Strange Land are a three piece who certainly like to make a lot of noise with their cerebral progressive rock/metal … well, I said noise? Yes, but I meant it in a good way, as the Wisconsin-based band pays a lot of attention also to melody, not only to the complexity of guitar riffs

Lovely and unsettling. Brightly arranged and shot through with darkness. Rooted in folk yet still using the language of art rock and electronica. In her striking debut album Light Of A Strange Day, the artist Hite revels in these contradictions. Hite is someone we’ve met before: she is the singer, multi-instrumentalist, and producer Julia Easterlin, who collaborated with the famed Malian guitarist Vieux Farka Toure on their album Touristes. The new moniker marks a new direction for Hite: as Julia Easterlin, she made her initial reputation by looping and layering her voice to create her music. On Touristes, she began to move away from what she calls “the looping artist pigeonhole.” This record, Light Of A Strange Day, she says, “is a natural progression, away from loops and into more flexible, expressive forms of storytelling.”

With an acclaimed history as the front-man and creative force behind the band Floater, Robert Wynia's work has been called "the nearest American thing to perfection" and "hard to define, yet easy to listen to again and again." His second full length solo album, titled Brave the Strange, explores change, loss, and new beginnings, all with a luscious backdrop of warm strings, vintage keyboards, and rich, melodious vocals. Featuring some of the Pacific Northwest's best and most loved musicians, Brave the Strange delivers a unique and cinematic musical landscape. Songs ranging from roadhouse blues-style Americana to hypnotic ambient soundscapes to classic album rock flow seamlessly together and leave the listener wanting more.
