A collection of this famous duo’s favorite global drum fusions from their past 25 years. Beautiful, serene and trance-invoking drum visions. With bonus DVD of music and landscape visuals.

Label: Innova

An instrumental minimalist jazz excursion into mind-tantalizing guitar trysts and technical forays. This recording is the result of the composers involvement with Forecast Music from 2003-2005. For fans of Robert Fripp, Brian Eno, etc.

Beloved hometown Madison quirk-nauts spew forth a beguiling array of witty song spins. From utilizing every town in Wisconsin as lyrical fodder to showcasing such guest musicians as Adrian Belew and Robert Fripp, they delight and frolic in the asinine as well as the sublime.

Taking 4 of their highest selling new age artists, David Arkenstone, Loren Gold, Nicholas Gunn and Johannes Linstead, and pairing them together in a CD and DVD combo package is formulated to be a sure bet for this label. I pretty much agree

Serene and meditative Native American flutes are melded and invoked above a percussive platform including Native drums and djembe plus the unique UFO shaped Hang drum. Perfect accompaniment for a blazing summer sunset.

Label: Mascot Records

Teaming up two friends, one a guitar virtuoso and one a rock vocalist produces pleasantly entertaining results. This very contemporary rock is not filled with bells and whistles, just really well written straight forward rock n roll.

Nevereverything
Label: Self Released

Disenchanted gothic electronica from Madison with flowing female vocals and occasional violin passages over a jittering harsh and unforgiving industrial backdrop. Disturbing throbbings in the lower registers propel the angst filled musical forms into a tumultuous fruition.

Label: Contraphonic

“Musik For A Play” Curious, quick and quirky compositions with the natural ambience and dynamics of a soundtrack. Guitar and piano driven melodies wind the loops of pensive introspection to effervesce into flowers of simplistic independence and flourish.

Gamma Ray
To The Metal!
Label: Earmusic

Seeking to bridge the gap between past and present, these classic German speed metal minstrels deliver their 10th studio album in 21 years. Although the album manages to occasionally get me in the groove and will certainly please their fans, it simply doesn’t express anything that I haven’t heard numerous times before.

Pierre De Gaillande
Bad Reputation
Label: Barbes

Georges Brassens was sort of a French Bob Dylan type dark pop bardic icon. Here his music and poetry is evoked, channeled and translated into English via De Gaillande’s tantalizing obsession with the silver tongued poet and musician. The simple rhythms were maintained as original as possible while being fitted for English. Thought provoking, memorable and disturbingly charming.
