Diving Bell - Sanguine Hum

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.

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.

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.

Protein For Everyone
•    THE NEW STUDIO ALBUM FROM PROG MAGAZINE AWARDS 2014 NOMINEES SCHNAUSER

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the latest release on ESOTERIC ANTENNA – "PROTEIN FOR EVERYONE” by the fabulously quirky band SCHNAUSER.

"Protein for Everyone” caustically details the nagging neuroses bubbling under the surface of everyday life and imagines a brave new world where you can sell parts of your anatomy to be processed into cheap tasty meat for easy cash. Occasionally melancholic and blackly humorous lyrics are wrapped in a musical blanket of odd time signatures; fizzing with lively energetic progressive arrangements that have a pop sensibility, luring you in with three part harmonies and earworm melodies before wigging out on an inappropriate glockenspiel and fuzz bass solo in 10/8.
The album includes the epic, eccentric and wonderful lengthy track ‘Dipsosable Outcomes’. Schnauser have been nominated in the September 2014 PROG Magazine awards. With influences such as early Soft Machine, Supersister, White Denim, The Mothers of Invention, Stephen Malkmus and the Canterbury scene, "Protein for Everyone” is one of the most original and striking releases in Progressive music of 2014.

NB: This product is released September 29th and will not be dispatched before this date.

TRACK LIST:


1. GREY OR BLUE
2. PROTEIN FOR EVERYONE
3. NATIONAL GRID
4. THE REASON THEY'RE ALIVE
5. SPLIT
6. BUON NATALIE
7. DISPOSABLE OUTCOMES
Our Price: £10.95
