Top Sellers

tim bowness / peter chilvers - california, norfolk (cd)

Combining dark, electronic textures and found sounds with lean, intense compositions and poignant lyrics, California, Norfolk's highly original synthesis of singer-songwriter intimacy and imaginative production values echoes aspects of the pioneering work of Blue Nile, Randy Newman, Steve Reich, Mark Eitzel and late 70's Berlin-era Bowie/Eno.

rothko - no chart no anchor no rudder no sails (cdr)

Exploring a gentle and impressionistic Durutti Column, Cocteau Twins, Harold Budd and Eberhard Weber territory, this unique combination of haunting textures and loop improvs might just be one of the highly regarded Rothko's finer moments.

hugh hopper - jazzloops (cdr)

In 2003, ex-Soft Machine 'fuzz-bass' innovator Hugh Hopper gifted Burning Shed one of the albums of his long and distinguished career.

A computer manipulated collage of live and studio performances, 'Jazzloops' possessed the fizz and energy of classic Soft Machine along with an astute awareness the possibilities of contemporary technology that occasionally brought to mind the jazzier extremes of post-Trip-Hoppers DJ Shadow and Koop.

Featuring mangled contributions from Robert Wyatt, Elton Dean and John Marshall (amongst many others).

tim bowness / peter chilvers - overstrand (cdr)

A companion release to 2002s critically regarded 'California, Norfolk', 'Overstrand' is a collection of remixes, live performances and rare outtakes. Containing six fresh interpretations of songs from 'California, Norfolk' and 'World Of Bright Futures' in addition to two previously unreleased tracks, 'Overstrand' is a gem of understated beauty.

tim bowness / samuel smiles - live archive one (cdr)

Cheap heartache and high emotion at croon central, guaranteed.

a marble calm - surfacing (cd)

A loose collective centred around the nucleus of Peter Chilvers and reclusive marimba/vibraphone virtuoso Jon Hart, A Marble Calm's debut release is an ambitious collection combining textural instrumentals and drifting songscapes. Featuring Burning Shed regulars Tim Bowness, Sandra O'Neill and Theo Travis and clocking in at 74 minutes long, the album distinctively blends influences from Contemporary Classical (Gorecki/Prt), ECM Jazz, Sigur Rs and the ambient songwriting of Sylvian, Eno and No-Man.

"Sandra O'Neill's singing on Gillian Welch's "I Dream a Highway" is heart-meltingly beautiful. I think this song deserves a new category - something like 'future country'. More, soon, please!" - Brian Eno

hugh hopper and matt howarth - the stolen hour (cd)

Gloriously atmospheric and intense, 2004's 'The Stolen Hour' was a superb extension of Hugh Hopper's 'Jazzloops' series of explorations written to accompany the distinctive imagery of comic book artist, Matt Howarth.

Assisted by, amongst others, Robert Wyatt (cornet, voice), John Marshall and Didier Malherbe, Hopper updated the Jazz-tinged Minimalist looping he initially developed in the 1960s, evoking the innovative spirit of early Soft Machine, while simultaneously suggesting new possibilities for his music.

centrozoon - the scent of crash and burn (cd ep)

Dating from 2003, Centrozoon's first release with No-Man singer Tim Bowness presented an unexpected fusion of electronic pop and experimental elements that was both accessible and challenging.

?A hybrid pop refinement that will appeal to fans of Japan as well as King Crimson." - Expose
