Dallas Acid - The Spiral Arm
"The sky-gazing wonder of Linda Beecroft’s vocals on the title track recall the breathy intimacy of Mazzy Star, yet draped with almost symphonic banks of synthesizers blinking into infinity, expertly operated by Christian Havins and Michael Gerner, redolent of the deepest end of classic kosmische music."
Laraaji - Flow Goes The Universe

Now available for the first time on vinyl, cut by Stephan Betke (Pole).
Laraaji - Two Sides of Laraaji
A bringing together of two very different sides of Laraaji, his ambient masterpiece ‘Flow Goes The Universe’ coupled with his up-beat collaboration with Japanese dub-reggae band Audio Active. Features a specially designed gatefold pack with poster insert.
Brian Eno - Neroli
(Thinking Music Part IV) (Expanded Edition)
"Reissue of Brian Eno’s critically acclaimed 1993 single-track album. The extra tracknNew Space Music is a fine example of Eno’s inimitable long-form drone music and a satisfying companion piece to Neroli."
Brian Eno - The Drop (Expanded Edition)
The Drop, explains Eno ‘is how a visiting alien might interpret jazz after reading a detailed explanation’. The results are seventeen tracks of angular melodies, bent guitar notes, piano drizzles and manipulated effects that introduce us to new musical equations leaving a bewildering hybrid cinematic spaciousness.
Brian Eno - Nerve Net & My Squelchy Life
Nerve Net, the twelfth solo studio album by Eno, is the most strident and assertive Eno solo release since 1977’s Before And After Science. Nerve Net is accompanied by the previously unreleased and almost legendary album My Squelchy Life.
Brian Eno & Jah Wobble - Spinner
(25th Anniversary Expanded Edition)
"Spinner fills an intriguingly permissive space in the Eno catalogue, where he steps back from his own strict editorial criteria and placed himself “in the hands of Jah”. Includes “Stravinsky” (an original from the Glitterbug soundtrack) and “Lockdown” a new track by Wobble.
Brian Eno & John Cale - Wrong Way Up
(30th Anniversary Expanded Edition)
Despite Brian Eno and John Cale having made music together since the mid-70s, Wrong Way Up was their first official joint album. This is the 30th anniversary re-release of that collaboration, a milestone in both artists’ careers, and notably the first time Eno had delivered a collection of song-based recordings since Before And After Science in 1977. Contains two bonus tracks and an extensive – and enlightening - interview with Eno.
John Cale - Words For The Dying
"While musically this album (produced by Eno) doesn't match many of his more innovative works, this record has nothing to do with rock and roll. It's Cale singing the poetry of Dylan Thomas accompanied by a Russian orchestra and choir. Recorded in St Petersburg in 1989 - a pivotal moment in Russian history - it is one of the best pieces of music Cale has ever been involved with and if you're a fan of his that's not a trivial statement."
Djivan Gasparyan - I Will Not Be Sad
In This World
Originally released on Melodiya Records in 1983, this album was Gasparyan’s debut release outside the Soviet Union. He is one of the world's most distinctive, haunting instrumentalists, the master of the duduk, a traditional instrument of Armenia. With it he creates surely the most plaintive and atmospheric sounds on the planet.
Harold Budd - Wind In Lonely Fences
“Harold Budd, surely the ‘Master’ of minimalism, here offers a lovingly-curated two-disc retrospective of his work, featuring collaborations with the Cocteau Twins, Andy Partridge, John Foxx, Eno/Lanois and others. It is above all a wonderful and rewarding place to start for those not yet familiar with his work; there isn’t one of the eighteen tracks that isn’t thoughtful, nourishing and deeply moving.”
Harold Budd - I Know This Much is True
The original score from the HBO series of the same name, this album is an essential listen for fans of Budd or indeed the TV series and like all good soundtracks it more than stands up on its own. This was Harold’s last release before his passing in late 2020.
Harold Budd, Ruben Garcia, Daniel Lentz -
Music For 3 Pianos
Music For 3 Pianos, is the result of a long-standing friendship with fellow Americans Daniel Lentz and Ruben Garcia. Inspired by Morton Feldman's multi-piano pieces, the trio continues to explore the space between music and silence with these six sketches for piano. Music For 3 Pianos is ambient music of the highest order, in which the echoes and silences mean as much as the notes themselves."
Harold Budd - The White Arcades
"A truly mesmerizing piece of work, totally captivating and sensitive, striking a perfect balance between electronics and instruments neither overpowering the other. Budd is after beauty, not menace and this is peak Budd at his stylistically most pure."
Harold Budd - Luxa
"Recorded in 1989 in Mesa Arizona, Luxa showcases Budd's mastery of space and silence and unusually for Harold, in sixteen pieces spread over four 'chapters'. While a few of the pieces are less than a minute long, that detracts nothing from the record's ambient and atmospheric mood."
Harold Budd - By The Dawn's Early Light
The musicians assembled for this recording are first rate; they include harpist Susan Allen, pedal steel guitarist B.J. Cole, as well as Bill Nelson on acoustic and electric guitar. It features a combination of Harold Budd's typically ‘ambient’ instrumentals and several short poems, written and read by Budd himself.
Roger Eno - Between Tides
Recorded at Abbey Road Studios and in a church in his then home-town of Woodbridge, Between Tides is a wonderful, warm hearted classical album of piano-lead melancholy and pastoral beauty. Soothing, melodic, unexpected depth and beauty.
Roger Eno with Kate St John -

Roger Eno - Little Things We Left Behind
A double CD set collecting some of Roger Eno's most moving solo piano work in addition to some of his acclaimed collaborations with small chamber ensembles. The overall feel of this collection is a little like a slowly-moving river, which encourages you to sink into it, and let it wash your stress away.
Roger Eno & Lol Hammond - Damage
Roger Eno and Lol Hammond (Drum Club) have somehow managed to put their wildly differing musical stylings into one space to create an intriguing collection of work. In its own way, just might inspire others to look a little closer at the raw power a piano accompanied by just the right accompaniments is capable of producing.
Channel Light Vessel - Automatic
“I'm east of my youth and west of my future blowing the blues with the boosters and cruisers. Spook shows and windows and birds on the ceiling, tombstones and roses and telephone’s screaming. Live and die – time will testify”. Automatic is like an ambient journey that travels far and wide in all the directions of world music and exquisite art rock.
