Hi All

We finally received the new Perge and Stringer.
Scattered Thoughts and Second Sun.
Very cool Berlin School releases in the vein af TD in the 70,s and 80,s.
Great sequencing and Mellotrons you will love it!!

And at B-Wave I got a fantastic release that I had missed out on.
A cd by Serge Devadder - Cambrian, in the style of Strata and Soma by Robert Rich & Steve Roach.
Lovely ambient music that reaches in sonic landscapes and moving slow guitar washes!
A great album, you can hear a track in Dreamscape Radio!!
I got it right in the Catalog every body should be able to listen to this!!

For those who like reading reviews, each week we add the latest ones we can find.
If you scroll down in the newsletter you can find all new reviews each week!

Last week we received only a limited copies of this great release.
"Keller & Schonwalder & Broekhuis did a session in the hall and reordered it
and released it there with photo's on a special BKS USB stick!!"
It won't be released Mario told me and it was only there!! available.
But i managed to get 10 extra copies after a sales spurt (20 copies sold in ! Day!!).
But of these 10 extra we only have 2!! Left so be quick because gone is gone.

And last week  I bought these new addings to the Groove Catalog
Space Megalithe - Abstract Dimensions (cd)
Space Megalithe - Psyché Energy (cd)
Both fantastic Berlin School releases. With these I can honestly say.
If you don't like them when you received them send them back because I am sure you will :-)

83677 Pyramaxx - Distance

A dark whoosh coming from the abyss opens the first seconds of "Wide
Open Range". Keyboard chords stroll in background there, weaving the
strands of a ghost melody which will faint as "Wide Open Range" sells
its 11 minutes. A line of sequences invites itself. Its circular
movement make clink its keys which skip in an ascending movement,
while the waves of synth are painting a sinister atmosphere. It's the
dance of the sequences. Frivolous and undisciplined, they flutter in
jerks by tying its fragile ethereal pace onto the strikings of
percussions. Gradually the music gets intensified. The rhythm becomes
heavy but stays slow. The percussions are equal to a skillful drummer
in a progressive rock band. The guitar riffs bury the dance of the
sequences of which the delicately spasmodic ballet is dancing lightly
in solo in the banks of silvered mist at around the 4th minute. The
structure of "Wide Open Range" sees again then its introduction and m
a kes adjustment with another line of bass sequences which gallops
with more vigor, trying to avoid the bites of the elytrons of metal
from the cymbals. The rhythm becomes then very electronic with these
lines of sequences which mix their charms with lines of synth
delicately perfumed by psychedelism. But no solos! The percussions
become heavier. The riffs get more present. And "Wide Open Range"
explodes for a big progressive electronic rock at around the 6th
minute. A short moment of fury where the synths swap their effects for
guitar riffs and where Max Schiefele takes the lead with loud solos.
The chaos becomes harmony with two layers of guitar, one acoustic and
the other one electric, where bluesy solos cry over on acoustic notes.
Little by little the sequences are taking their rights on a more
electronic mood, entailing the finale of "Wide Open Range" towards a
lunar electronic setting.
Nervous and hopping sequences, cosmic banks of mist, electronic
effects on good structures of rhythms sometimes short-lived and
sometimes sustained, catchy melodies; “Distance” is not an album of
Pyramid Peak and nor an album of Axess. Certainly the name and the
approaches are rather similar, in particular at the level of the
structures of rhythms, but the synths here are discreet and leave all
the room to Max Schiefele's six-strings, so giving more the illusion
than this first opus of Pyramaxx is an album of Maxxess which is
solidly supported by a very effective Pyramid Peak but amputated of
Uwe Denzer. Max Schiefele (Maxxess) and Axel Stupplich! It's a long
story which goes back up in 2004 with the solo album of Axess (Axel
Stupplich), Contact. Since then both friends worked together on many
times, Max Schiefele accompanying even Pyramid Peak for several
concerts during the last years. It was inevitable that sooner or later
this collaboration was going to find its reason on an album. And
“Distance” is a good album of EM where the signatures of Pyramid Peak
and Axess d i lutes their boldness in the shadow of Maxxess and in an
album which hides nice pearls. Pearls of tones, of rhythms and of
ambiences, with per moments a P.Peak claw, which seem to me to be
sacrificed for the benefit of a six-strings very omnipresent for an
album of electronic rock. But not for a Maxxess album.
The rhythm slightly technoïd, "Nighttrain" offers a good electronic
structure perfumed of the Genesis influences, period Invisible Touch.
The keyboard makes fly melodious chords and the movement of sequences
weave a spiral vertical movement which is mistreat by electronoïd
percussions. The approach is interesting until the riffs of guitar
shapes again the whole thing into a kind of electronic rock ballad.
It's lively and solidly driving with nice electronic effects and of
percussions borrowed to the Jarre repertoire as well as some floating
orchestrations. The introduction of "Magellanic Clouds" is charmingly
electronic with a line of sequences which unstitches its rhythm i n a
very lunar decoration. That my friends, it is good Peak with an
ambient rhythm knotted in spasms. The percussions knock out these
ambiences with a rhythm heavier than the ambient velocity of the
sequences. The guitar lives very well here with layers which use
perfume of these effects of synth. And as in "Wide Open Range" the
rhythm is exploding for short moment, so giving the pretext to bring
the six-strings of Maxxess to roar instead of the synths which would
be capable of sculpturing here good solos, as audacious than ethereal.
Fewer pretexts for the guitar and more synth solos of; the perfect
marriage would have been completed. Because this cohabitation is
possible as shows it the slow introduction of the title-track and its
movement of sequences which hiccup in loops in cosmos and also in
these waves of percussions which are rolling like a sea on the edge to
overflow. The riffs of the guitar adopt marvelously the threat of the
sequences, while its sighs decorate the lunar l a ndscape of the same
effects of a synth. The track displays a very good crescendo which the
guitar distorts not at all, even with its nice solos. And here, as all
over “Distance”, the moods reach a heavy and slow explosion in order
to justify the presence of Maxxess within Pyramid Peak. After the very
technoïd rock of "Runaway", a great driving track by the way,
"Thangka" hangs onto our ears with a wonderful and very Pyramid Peak
structure. Weaved in nebulous ambiences and eaten away by a movement
of sequences worthy of the Peak repertoire, the music evolves all in
subtlety with an ambient structure of rhythm which will end with this
kind of cosmic ballad innate to the electronic structures of P.P. and
of which the heaviness suits very well to the atmospheres. And the
guitar is just in the tone by multiplying ambient vampiric loops that
we can easily confuse to those of a synth. This is a great
track...with its guitar solos! A guitar very presents in "Circle of
Enlightenment" whose i ntroduction is weaved in the vestiges of Pink
Floyd in Wish You Were Here. The movement of the sequences which wave
in the halfway, as well as these throbbing pulsations so dear to the
Pyramid Peak repertoire hijack these atmospheres towards a structure
where the rhythm always stays in suspension in very beautiful effects
of synth before closing the book of “Distance” with another heavy and
slow tempo. A slow dance tempo where the six-strings buries little by
little this signature of Pyramid Peak. But what solos my friends!
Definitely, Max Schiefele is a superb guitarist. Except that
“Distance”, and I am convinced that the fans of Pyramid Peak are going
to adore, is not an album of this very good Berlin trio to whom we owe
real jewels of EM of style New Berlin School since almost 10 years.
It's a strong album of Pyramaxx-ess where the guitar, so beautiful and
so good it is, will never manage to compete with the creativity of the
synths from Pyramid Peak. The only dark shadow of thi s “Distance”!

55893 Farn, Pete - Blow my Tears

I had had the ears a bit fearful, and fairly painful, after my first
experiences with the universe of PeteFarn's sounds. And I have to
admit that they were of marble when my eyes have scrutinized the
pastel colors of this “Blow My Tears” artworks where its abstract art
releases more colors than the one of Cryptids which had a clear
penchant for sci-fi. I anticipated, and rightly, an even more
difficult album to access and I was not even at the end of my
troubles. Before beginning, let's place the axes of this last Peter
Schaefer's boldness which leads scrupulously the listener in the
psychedelic lands of Zeit (Tangerine Dream)or still Interstellar
Overdrive (Pink Floyd) with an approach which aims to be a book of
ideas and a horn of plenty of sounds and tones in a universe of
parallelism which lines the borders of a music which avoids all
etiquettes. In fact this mosaic of sounds literally reminds me an
orchestra of musical instruments of a l l sorts, as much philharmonic
than of streets, which scatters through the mazes of a city where
streets are so narrow that the echo of a fragment of this orchestra
makes noise on the sufferings of another one. You follow me?
Strange metallic singings (a sitar disguised as a bagpipe?) open the
eccentricities of this last adventure in sounds and tones of PeteFarn.
Already our ears feel assaulted by the introduction of "Blowing Up".
Look for no rhythms nor for harmonies! The ambiences are at the top of
their art with these origins of noises, of breezes or of sort of
singings which drag the dusts of steel and of which the arcs of sounds
are grazing the ears. The wearing of a headphone here is banned, so
much the depth of the sound radiations is intense. As we move forward
in the track, we indeed recognize a kind of sitar (a very metallic
one) which crumbles its pinched chords in twisted ambiences where a
kind of big tuba is blowing its nostalgia in some clouds of static
prisms. It's slow and distressing with a direction (we speak all the
same of ambiences here) which are totally diverted from their axes of
passivity with abrupt movements. Violins and cellos cry in an
indescribable din where a language, foreign for me, breathes life to a
moment of Japanese-style tragedy in "Orang Orang". I wonder how Peter
Schaefer does, but he managed downright to make the nothingness
grimacing and roaring. But I know why my neighbors are kind of mad at
me! It's necessary to lower the volume, because the moods become
unbearable for some (Hello my love!). While "Stampferl" manages to be
a surprise with a good rhythmic approach which touches Electronica,
the track crumbles with a thick cloud of iconoclastic noises in our
ears. So bad! The press guide announces that there are good surprises
in “Blow My Tears”. That depends on the point of view that we are
putting ourselves! The following tracks are all sound essays which are
scattering tones, sounds and fragments of rhythms into unknown
territories. "Udung" is the first track to really offer a homogeneous
structure (a kind of very progressive free jazz) on its length.
Afterward "Go!", "Obö" and its delicious funeral march in a very
avant-gardist New Orleans, and "Palästina", a superb structure of
anything I have to admit, that I have choose to be played on our radio
show in Montreal, help us a little more to discover a universe where
the noise of sounds and the other side of music take quite an all new
dimension. For adventurous and audacious! In fact for the eccentrics
who like distancing themselves in a crowd with a thing which leaves
absolutely its mark, its separation between two universes which are
nevertheless so close one of the other one. I won't say it's not good,
but it's definitely not my taste!
