Kaukasus

'I' (cd pre-order)


Scandinavian Prog Rock giants Ketil Vestrum Einarsen (Jaga Jazzist, Motorpsycho), Rhys Marsh (The Autumn Ghost, Opium Cartel) and Mattias Olsson (Anglagard, White Willow) join forces as Kaukasus.

'I' is the band's outstanding debut release.

Starting out as a Krautrock-style experiment, 'I' evolved into a contemporary Nordic Noir Prog album featuring elements of Art Rock and World music, and echoes of Japan, Genesis, Can, Brian Eno, and early Peter Gabriel in the mix.

Jon Hassell

City: Works Of Fiction (triple CD / double vinyl pre-orders)


Combining Hassel's trademark brand of Fourth World fusion with influences from the then emerging hip-hop scene, City: Works Of Fiction (1990) is a landmark release in JH's career. 

The CD edition is presented as a deluxe triple CD set, alongside a 1989 concert performance of the City group, mixed live by Brian Eno, plus a carefully edited sequence of alternate takes, demos and re-interpretations.

The vinyl edition has been re-cut as a double LP for extra wide grooves and improved bass response, and includes a download card with access to the audio content of all 3 discs from the CD version. 

Both versions include a 26 page booklet.

Pre-order for 19th May release.


John Bassett

Unearth (cd pre-order)


Unearth is the debut solo release from John Bassett - the singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist and producer of KingBathmat. 

A collection of ten melancholic songs that combines Progressive Rock atmospherics and ambition in an acoustic singer-songwriter style, the album has generated hugely positive reviews and comparisons with the likes of Steven Wilson's and Andy Partridge's more melodic and haunting work.

"One of the most impressive records I've heard this year." - Popmatters

Pre-order for April 21st shipping.

Diamond Jack And The Queen Of Pain (cd / vinyl pre-order)

Unavailable for over 30 years and only previously released on LP, Diamond Jack has been reissued on CD and LP.

The CD has been remastered by Nick Robbins and includes several previously unheard demos.

The 180g vinyl audiophile version has been cut directly from the recently discovered original Audiofilm Studios analogue master tape.

Pre-order for 26th May release.


My Dying Bride

The Vaulted Shadows (cd pre-order)


The Vaulted Shadows brings together two of MDB's latest and possibly heaviest works into one cohesive package.

The Dead City Blueprint (cd pre-order)


Thine's third studio album is awash with darkly atmospheric and poignant Rock/Metal anthems laced with elements of contemporary Prog.
