David Muse, Tonal Alchemy, Vinyl Rip

Today’s rip is from David Muse, best known as a member of the 70’s Top 40, soft pop group, Firefall. On his 1981 solo LP, Tonal Alchemy, Muse leaves the pop trappings behind, producing a synth heavy album falling somewhere between New Age, Kosmische and Balearic genres. 182 more words

Sand - Old Loggerhead

Sand were Johanes Vester, Ludwig Papenberg and Ulrich Papenberg, a German experimental band who came along during the final phase of the Krautrock phenomena. This track is from the 1974 album ‘Golem'; which was unreleased for many years (finally getting a release on Rotorelief records, after being previously released with bonus material as the Steven Stapleton-compiled collection ‘Ultrasonic Seraphim’). 150 more words
