Earth And Fire - Earth And Fire

Earth And Fire
Released on 31/08/09. Earth and Fire are legends of the Dutch rock scene, first making an impression with their debut single 'Seasons' in 1969. They quickly established themselves as an international act thanks to the excellence of the material on their debut album and the powerful vocals of Jerney Kaagman in 1970. Released in the UK on the highly collectable Nepentha label in 1971 with a sleeve designed by Roger Dean, the bands eponymous debut was a superb collection of material with a progressive edge.

Diving Bell
DIVING BELL, the excellent debut album by Oxford’s SANGUINE HUM. Featuring JOFF WINKS (vocals, guitars, drum programming and samples), MATT BABER (Rhodes, synthesizer, percussion, mini drum kit), BRAD WAISSMAN (bass) and PAUL MALLYON (drums, percussion, mini drum kit), the band was formed from the ashes of the Joff Winks Band and the Antique Seeking Nuns (a heady mix of Zappa and Canterbury influenced instrumental compositions with songwriting that owed much to artists such as Robert Wyatt). However, after a year of not performing live and only working in the studio, the need for the duo to be back in a band reached a feverish pitch.
So with an ever-mounting pile of new songs the members of the Joff Winks Band came back together under the new moniker of Sanguine Hum, recording the album "Diving Bell” in 2011. Initially released in limited quantities on the Troopers for Sound website, the album is a complex ensemble work, featuring profound song writing, uniquely ambitious instrumental pieces and an equally important attention to the sonic landscape of the music as a whole, giving the band its defining characteristics. Sanguine Hum continue to pursue diverse areas of writing flitting between intense instrumental pieces and unorthodox songwriting. Influenced as much by Zappa and Mahavishnu Orchestra as they are by bands such as Tortoise, Sanguine Hum create avant-prog-post-rock with groove and melody to spare.
This new edition of "Diving Bell” adds three new songs and sees the Oxford quartet consolidate an already remarkably varied career, showcasing a new and exciting immediacy in their song writing that recalls the very best of Radiohead, Porcupine Tree and the Flaming Lips.

The Weight Of The World
NEW STUDIO ALBUM FROM POST-PROGRESSIVE OUTFIT SANGUINE HUM.

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of the eagerly awaited new studio album by Sanguine Hum. "The Weight of the World” sees Sanguine Hum expand their musical horizons on all fronts with a seven-track collection of diverse compositions - technically challenging and exciting yet always melodic and direct.
Songs such as ‘From the Ground Up’ and ‘System for Solution’ pursue the Porcupine Tree meets Radiohead approach of the debut record "Diving Bell” with powerful yet intricate riffs propelling the songwriting that continues to make ever more inventive use of surprising twists and turns in the arrangement. Surprises are to be found as well in the instrumentation as the band open up the sound and more explicitly reference a love of electronica and the music of artists such as Boards of Canada and Aphex Twin, best heard in the song ‘Day of Release’ as synthetic percussion and rumbling synths give way to chiming acoustic guitar and a soaring vocal melody. Perhaps even more exciting for a band that perhaps held some of their Prog influences in check on their debut album, is the 15-minute title track that manages the task of combining effective and emotional songwriting with thrilling musical developments that push the band to the limit.
"The Weight of the World” breaks new ground for a band at the forefront of truly "progressive” music.

Turkey: Expanded Edition
· NEWLY REMASTERED EDITION CD OF THIS CLASSIC ALBUM FROM FORMER JETHRO TULL MEMBER GLENN CORNICK’s BAND
· WITH TWO RARE BONUS TRACKS
· REMASTERED FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES
· BOOKLET WITH FULLY RESTORED ARTWORK & ESSAY

ESOTERIC RECORDINGS are pleased to announce the release of a newly remastered CD edition of the classic second album by WILD TURKEY, "Turkey”.

Former JETHRO TULL bassist Glenn Cornick formed Wild Turkey after departing Tull in 1971. The initial line-up of the band featured Glenn Cornick (bass), Graham Williams (guitar), Alan "Tweke” Lewis (guitar), John "Pugwash” Weathers (drums) and Gary Pickford-Hopkins (vocals). Before recording their first album, Weathers and Williams departed the fold to be replaced by Jon Blackmore (guitar & vocals) and Jeff Jones (drums). The album "Battle Hymn” was released by Chrysalis Records in 1971 and was well received by fans and critics alike. By the time of the band’s second album for Chrysalis Records, the line-up had changed again with Mick Dyche replacing Jon Blackmore on guitar and Steve Gurl joining on keyboards.

Unavailable officially on CD for over fifteen years, this classic album has been newly remastered from the original Chrysalis master tapes and features two rare bonus tracks, a booklet that restores the original album artwork and a new essay.

Now We Have Light: 2CD Edition
THE STUNNING NEW ALBUM FROM SANGUINE HUM
A DOUBLE ALBUM FROM THE CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED OXFORD BAND 

The Esoteric Antenna label is delighted to announce the release of the new album from SANGUINE HUM. 

Now We Have Light is the third Sanguine Hum album, following on from the acclaimed albums Diving Bell and the Weight of the World. Now We Have Light is a double CD concept album. Unusually with this record, it is also something that the band have been working on for over a decade, and its roots go right back to the days of Antique Seeking Nuns, which was the earliest project that guitarist Joff Winks and keyboard player Matt Baber collaborated on. During this time they hatched a truly bizarre conceptual story to hang even more music around - a work that perhaps was too ambitious for them at the time, and one which took the formation of Sanguine Hum to make it a feasible challenge to complete. Somewhat like a twisted mix of Hitch-Hikers Guide to the Galaxy, Frank Zappa's Joe's Garage and the Lamb Lies Down On Broadway, Now We Have Light is a future parable set in an entirely possible scenario, in which entirely impossible events start occurring.

Although a core group of songs were written for this album as far back as 2002, the band were inspired by the most recent Sanguine Hum material to revisit the old tunes and where needed develop and rewrite what already existed, whilst also creating a large amount of brand new music at the same time. Ultimately, it has come to represent a definitive cross section of all the work that they have made as Antique Seeking Nuns, Joff Winks Band, Nunbient and Sanguine Hum thus far. Recorded once again in Oxford, at Evolution Studios, the double album features alongside Joff Winks and Matt Baber, original bassist Brad Waissman and, making his second studio appearance with the band, Henry Fool and No-Man drummer, Andrew Booker. Also, the band invited renowned UK jazz vibraphone player, Jim Hart, to perform on several tracks, which marks the first time that a guest musician has appeared on a Sanguine Hum album. The package comes wrapped in a striking cover of illustrations from graphic artist Meriel Waissman.

Now We Have Light is arguably the finest album to date from Sanguine Hum, one of the most innovative bands in modern Progressive music.

NB: This title is released 23rd Feb 2015 and will not be dispatched until this date.
