With riveting performances by the modern prog-rock legends Stick Men – Tony Levin, Markus Reuter and Pat Mastelotto – , "Prog Noir" is ambitious, achieving and immediately essential. Cinematic themes, towering grooves and intricate arrangements are all on tap, and shower down in abundance. Proving conclusively that the whole is indeed greater than the sum of its parts, this herculean effort exceeds any perceived limitations of the trio format – satisfying even the most devout and demanding of listeners.

Doom/Death Metal | Label : F.D.A. Rekotz

"Forsaken Earth" is the title of the second full-length album of German Doom / Death Metal hopefuls DECEMBRE NOIR. The band seems to have achieved the ability to reproduce the ideas in their heads also on the songwriting- and performing-side. The overall picture is consistent and the band's standard easily can compete with genre protagonists like OCTOBER TIDE or MY DYING BRIDE. The production again is clear and powerful with a harmonious balance of their ingredients. Rounded off with a really fine and well-fitting cover artwork, this release is recommended for all fans of the mentioned genre and the right medicine for this year's rainy summer.

Blake is a very sensitive musician, a teacher who always seeks to modify, rend, fragmenting and simplify the issues and transplanting them to a new world tonalities, very personal and diametrically opposed to the original. Among his influences recognized Thelonious Monk, George Russell and Gunther Schuller and the world of classical Bela Bartok, Igor Stravinsky and Charles Ives.

After the critical acclaim of their self-titled debut and Return to Magenta in 1977 and 1978, respectively, Willy DeVille and his band took another look at the sassy, street-tough rock & roll they'd dished up and took the first step toward the swinging Spanish soul the band's subsequent albums would strive for and the crooning R&B heartbreaker DeVille himself would become as a solo artist…

Tango, Tango Nuevo and Cuban music mixed together by the quintett Las Sombras, enriched with German short stories from the Tango Cafe. “A delicious mélange of tango, jazz, classical and world music…You will enjoy it!” - Hugh Bebes. The artists write: “Our music tells what we heard. Typewriter, snapper, cajon provide the pulse, kalimba, mandolin and cymbal invite on a journey to countries far away. We have followed the tango, we are still on our way, and it may take some time until we are home again.”

The relentlessly interesting Khan does not make ragas and meditation music appropriate for your dentist’s office. He’s more like a Hemingway working with strings instead of a typewriter crafting dense, multi layered sonic vignettes that jostle, provoke and create an environment where something pulling you forward keeps leading you on. Assured music aimed directly at the center of your mind, this is what you listen to if your commitment to self awareness goes deeper than buying a new pair of yoga pants.

Label: Piranha

It is the world’s deadliest song, a musical composition so lethal that merely to hear it hummed may induce suicidal tendencies. It is “Gloomy Sunday”, public menace of such potentially epidemic proportions the BBC was compelled to ban it for decades. Indeed, if contemporary news reports and eyewitness accounts are to be believed, no other song comes close to it for sheer morbidity.

"Noir Et Blanc" is a groundbreaking album described by the UK & US press as "Fela Kuti-meets-Kraftwerk -on-the-dancefloor" and "in the same class as Byrne and Eno's BUSH OF GHOSTS". Resulting from a torrid encounter between Zairean singer Bony Bikaye, Algerian-born French composer Hector Zazou and mad scientists CY1, it also features wild guitars by Fred Frith and by Kinono No1 producer Vincent Kenis, who also mixed the album alongside Gilles Martin and Crammed founder Marc Hollander.

1960's Brit Pop hits the Mods and Rockers with a splash of Surf. The Retroliners are a surf-style instrumental combo whose eclectic blend of vintage guitars, classic hammond B-3, and modern sonics produces a unique interpretation of dark, angular spy music spiked with pop, punk, twist and twang.
