Folktronic
What if computers finally began getting more Africa in them? What if folk artists started emerging who sounded more post-modern than Cornelius or Pole? What would Click Folk or Glitch Folk sound like? What would Alan Lomax have said if, in 1965, the Newport Folk Festival had been invaded by boffins and geeks playing modular Moogs? What if you could hear, today, the Country Music of the year 2049? What about the Japanese country music of 2049? What would that sound like? What if electronics had appeared in 18th Century Scotland just at the moment of the Highland Clearances? How many mountains can you fit on a Minidisc? It's what Raymond Scott, Bruce Haack or Gary Numan might have sounded like if they'd jammed their way through the back catalogue of Steeleye Span. It's Shakespeare rendered in Flash 5 by a superlucid hyperactive Japanese geek. It's those prolific medieval songwriters Trad. and Anon. finding the missing link between unicorns and Unix. It's preposterous, provocative and prescient

Escalator
Released on 24/05/10. Esoteric Recordings are pleased to be release the classic 1968 Psychedelic Rock album, Escalator, by Sam Gopal. One of a handful of albums released on the short lived Stable imprint, Escalator is a gem of an album that is notable for the presence of Ian Willis, otherwise known as Lemmy. However, Escalator is asmemorable for the talents of Malaysian born percussionist Gopal and his band also including Roger D Elia (Guitar) and Phil Duke (bass). With such fine material as The Dark Lord, The Sky is Burning and Midsummer Night's Dream, Escalator is an essential album of British underground rock from the late 1960's. This Esoteric Recordings reissue has been re-mastered from the original tapes and fully restores the original artwork. Our Price: £10.95

Flowers In The Sky
Not a great deal is known about Revolving Paint Dream, a psychedelic pop band that recorded sporadically for Alan McGee's Creation label in the '80s All Music Guide Search the internet and that is pretty much what you see...pretty odd for a band who made two acclaimed albums, and the classic single Flowers In The Sky, one of the highlights of the early Creation Records, perhaps the epitome and high-watermark of their Paisley Underground period, and yet, the names and aural fingerprints of people like Andrew Innes (Primal Scream), Joe Foster (Creation co-founder and house producer) and label owner Alan McGee are all over these records as producers, writers, who knows what? The sleevenote on the first album mainly propose them as some species of zookeepers or mental health nurses to be honest. There is an almost total absence of pictures - those that do exist seem to feature early Creation Records scene figures like J. C. Bouchard and Luke Hayes with several shadowy figures, sometimes on the Paris Metro, at unidentified airports, somewhere unspecified but clearly in California, or on what appears to be the West Coast of Scotland on a particularly disappointing day. There are even some of an open air show at some European location - perhaps the greatest mystery of the Indie label era will it be unraveled by this definitive CD release? Who knows? There will be input from all the known players and some with people alleged to be involved in the worst way - and perhaps an inkling of the shocking secret at the very heart of The Revolving Paint Dream. The definitive collection, in as far as anything so nebulous can be definitive. Wonderfully remastered from the surviving tapes and includes the seminal indie hit Flowers In The Sky.

Heart On Your Sleeve - A Decade In Pop 1983-1993 2CD
The Brilliant Corners might just have been the best band out of Bristol during the 1980s.
Taking their name from a Thelonious Monk jazz album, they issued ten singles, five albums and various compilations between 1983 and 1993. Many of them made the Indie Chart, from early efforts with hints of psychobilly and The Cramps to more melodic, C86-flavoured tracks (think The Smiths and The Housemartins) and later tracks with a hint of shoegazer and baggy about them.
In Davey Woodward, The Brilliant Corners were fronted by a handsome, charismatic singer who was also a talented songwriter – and Davey’s cooperated with this long-overdue anthology, helping with the track listing and supplying the entertaining sleeve-notes.
HEART ON YOUR SLEEVE is the most authoritative Brilliant Corners collection to date, boasting all their singles on the SS20 and McQueen labels plus numerous tracks which have never before been on CD and a handful of previously unissued demos and live tracks.

Release date: 18/02/2013
