Isophonic Boogie Woogie - Roland P. Young

An ultra obscure disc of mesmerizing chimes, kalimba, saxophone and lo end electronics. It's an utterly compelling mixture of stuttering woodwinds, whimisical bells/chants and warm sunbeams. Recorded in 1980, this is true oblique outsider music. The whole disc is steeped in tradition while sounding as if it was beamed down from a satellite from the distant future.

Lunar Probe

A fantastic library on De Wolfe stocked to the brim with exotic android musique. "Alchemie Rhythmique" by Pierre Sciortino combines classical tumbling percussion cello/piano interplay, a deranged, oblique fractured soundscape. Seek out!

Berto Pisano & Jacques Chaumont "Kill!" OST

This soundtrack has everything, driving percussive workouts, strange creepy celestrial wordles vocals, nimble orchestral jazz stylings and pensive scraping free form avant tomfoolery. Sheer brilliance.

Electrk Bizaar

This lp seems to have taken years to find but the wait has definately been worth it. There's lots of sleazy moog action on this rather lovely 1974 Southern library. A few of the tracks have appeared on comps compiled by hipsters Barry 7 [Add 'N' To X] and Luke Vibert but there's still plenty of compelling electronic squiggle doink to investigate.
