Ici Maintenants - Space and Time

Year: 2001
RYM / Here

Okay, I'm not going to highly recommend the third album in a row, but you'll really miss out on some great music if you skip this one. Ici Maintenants are 70's free festival legends Here and Now (C'est le French translation!) jamming together one more time. They sound better than ever: A bit more structured, but still very experimental, and keeping most of their tracks well over 10 minutes (which is always a good thing). You know what? After listening to Shakalayah again I'm just going to Highly Recommend this anyway!

Tangerine Dream - Sorcerer

Year: 1978
RYM / Here
Highly Recommended...... Again? Yeah, I can't help it either. A forgotten soundtrack from a a forgotten film. both deserve a better fate, William Friedkin delivered this high budget masterpiece after the exorcist, but for some reason the film flopped at the box office. The same goes for the accompanying soundtrack by Tangerine Dream. It's really on the same level as their highly acclaimed albums from the same period (Phaedra anyone?), but never got the attention it deserves. What is and what should never be. On a personal note: I never listened to this album when I was young, because I thought the music was too creepy :)

Magic Lantern - Platoon EP

Year: 2010
RYM/ Here

Long, laidback freakout songs to go with the last few days of the summer. Magic Lantern is best enjoyed with sun, barbecue and beer. Neighbours may not always approve, but hey, if they complain just invite them too! One of the songs isn't called Friendship for nothing.

Serpentina Satélite - Nothing to Say

Year: 2008
RYM / Here

Their new album is due out on September 6th, so if you've never heard of Serpentina Satélite, here's your chance! They are without doubt one of the best kraut/spacerock bands from South America. A lot of improvisation on this one; You can hear the Amon Düül influences throughout the entire cd. Not always original, but there's enough here to enjoy. My personal favorite is the 25 minute song 'Kommune 1'.
