Yuri Morozov – Strange Angels

“Strange Angels” is a compilation of 1970’s experimental & electronic music recorded in soviet Russia by Yuri Morozov. Banned by the KGB for its esoteric content and references to forbidden spiritual texts, Yuri recorded over 46 albums between the 1970s until his death in 2006. Only available on cassettes passed around in secret within the Russian music underground until now.
The music on offer here ranges from the beat driven “Shall Come Forth The Demons”and “Inexplicable (pt 4)” to the more ambient sounds of “Return To Atlantis” and the prog experiments such as “Gita Shakti”. Regardless of where Morozov takes you, the heavily experimental and early electronic sound is the overwhelming theme, creating music that is very much of it’s time yet it still sounds fresh today.
If you have any interest in early electronics, prog rock, psychedelic rock, experimental music the suggest you pick this album up, you won’t regret it!

The Dandelion Set – A Thousand Strands

The Dandelion Set is a new CD LP covercollaboration between Glyn ‘Bigga’ Bush (Lightning Head, Rockers Hi Fi) and PK Chown (James Beige, Mr Liquorice). Their debut album ” A Thousand Strands” is a heady mix of krautrock, library music, psychedelic folk, electronica and more and even features cult hero Alan Moore on vocals!
In places the album captures the whimsical psychedelia of Syd Barrett era Pink Floyd, but easily takes darker turns, leading into sparse, unnerving, dystopian landscapes, then quickly flashing back to more groovier sounds.
“A Thousand Strands” is a must for anyone with an interest in early electronica, freaked out library music and funky beats. Released on CD, LP, cassette and download each with a unique combination of tracks, this is well worth picking up. Out April 22nd on Buried Treasure Records, keep your ears and eyes open!

Tony McPhee – The Hunt

Buried Treasutonyre records have unearthed a fantastic slice of experimental, early synth, prog electronica in the form of Tony McPhee’s ‘The Hunt’.
Originally released in 1973, ‘The Hunt’ was a 19 minute epic that took up one side of McPhee’s solo album, ‘The Two Sides Of Tony (T.S) McPhee’. Made using two newly purchased ARP2600 synthesizers, organ and a Bentley Rhythm Ace drum machine, ‘The Hunt’ is a stark, almost medieval, distorted slab of industrial electronics that precedes acts such as Throbbing Gristle, Suicide & Cabaret Voltaire by years.
Buried Treasure have enlisted the talents of Revbjelde to edit the track down to a more palatable 3 minutes 37 and to also provide a great remix too.
Release on 7″ single on Feb 15th you can pre-order you copy now!
