Het Droste Effect

“Het Droste Effect from Eindhoven, The Netherlands. Tracks ranging from repetitive robotrock to calm ambient to psychedelic kraut and space rock, infused with field recordings and special guests on bass, moog, vibraphonette, saxophone and monotron. Inspired by many great bands from the past and the present, Hermann (guitar/engineer) & Thompson (drums/percussion) set out to create a sound of their own. Het Droste Effect go on to have a jazz-inspired jam that fuses influences from the extended freestyle freeform funtimes of bands like the Grateful Dead.”

Brujas del Sol

“Brujas del Sol is an instrumental 3-piece from Colombus, Ohio.They make “music that makes people dance, bang their heads and plug their ears”. This band plays absolutely stunning psychedelic/desert rock filled with atmosphere & hypnotic grooves (think Causa Sui, 35007, Ten East, Yawning Man, Wooden Shjips).”

Erna Schmidt – Live (1969-1971)

Live (1969-1971)

“Erna Schmidt were living near the village of Wintrup in a country house even before it also became the home of Kraan. They were a very popular live band, well-known for their incredibly long improvisations in the Cream and Hendrix vein. Some tracks would last up to three quarters of an hour, for on stage they were usually stoned, jamming away in a frenzy, often together with guest musicians. Some good-quality recordings of these gigs survived and were used for putting together Live ‘69-71.”

Psycho – Live at Viljandi (1976)

Live at Viljandi (1976)

“Psycho plays an important role in Estonian prog, and was one of the most aggressive and innovative bands of the day. During its heyday of 1976-77, the band played an aggressive form of instrumental prog with a lot of improvisation, much like the Wetton-era of King Crimson. Many of the tracks were as ambitious as the aforementioned prog kings, such as the ethnically-influenced odd-time wonder “Raja 21/8” and many others. No other Estonian band matched these guys in their improv prowess; rather, not many bands around Europe during those days managed that feat either…”
