Artist: KEIJO
Title: Whose Dream We Live In?
Format: CD
Label: Fire Museum
Country: USA
Price: $12.50
"Finlands master of psychfolkdroneblues music emerges with what may well be his most engaging release yet! Considered by many to be the forefather of the much lauded Finnish musical underground, Whose Dream We Live In? serves as Keijos sonic calling card -- bringing together many of the diverse elements that his music has been celebrated for into a joyous whole. From blues (by way of Jyväskylä) meditations to spaceship lullabies to psychedelic rave ups and beyond, Keijo has opened the door into his musical universe for all to enter. Dont miss your chance, accept his invitation or its your loss, friend. For the most part a solo outing (although he is assisted by Leila on four of the eleven tracks here) Whose Dream We Live In? assuredly answers the question it poses. For the duration of the disc, enjoy living in the dream that Keijo has conjured up for you. We will not be held liable if, upon awakening, your world never looks the same again." - Fire Museum.

Artist: SONDHEIM, ALAN
Title: Ski/NN
Format: CD
Label: Fire Museum
Country: USA
Price: $12.50
"A recording of solo acoustic guitar and alpine zither songs, this release will delight those familiar with his early Riverboat and ESP Disc recordings as well as the audience for experimental solo guitar -- while creating an audience for experimental solo alpine zither! On this release, Alan performs on the 1927 martin tenor guitar, 19th century parlour guitar, 1920s prime alpine zither and 1860s elegie alpine zither. Dan Wharburton of Paris Transatlantic said of the reissue of The Songs: an endearingly ramshackle melting pot of free jazz, blues and folk (if Eugene Chadbourne later described his work as free improvised country & western bebop then this is free improvised Hawaiian flamenco gospel blues music theatre). Its influence resonates (indirectly, one imagines, unless there are more copies of the original vinyl in circulation than I imagine) in the free folk of todays New Weird America scene. Now listeners have the opportunity to hear for themselves the present day song form manifestations of this overlooked creative master." - Fire Museum.

Artist: SONDHEIM, ALAN /RITUAL ALL 770
Title: The Songs
Format: CD
Label: Fire Museum
Country: USA
Price: $12.50
"Kind of unbelievable that this has been reissued -- out of nowhere and a very pleasant surprise. Sondheim released 2 of the most-out ESP-Disks ( Ritual All 7-70 &TOther Little Tune and here is his prior Riverboat label album." - FE.   "First ever reissue of The Songs , the debut recording by Alan Sondheim & Ritual All 770, originally released on Riverboat Records (later recordings appeared on ESP Disk). Recorded in March 1967 and included on the legendary Nurse With Wound list of experimental recordings, on this album Alan Sondheim played Electric Guitar, Violin, Flute, Suling, Xylophone, Alto Saxophone, Classical Guitar, Clarinet, Shenai, Bass Recorder, Mandolin, So-na, Hawaiian Guitar, Koto, Sopranino Recorder, Chimta, Cor Anglais, Sitar and Bansari. Joined by Barry Sugarman (Tabla, Dholak & Naquerra), Chris Mattheson (Bass), Robert Poholek (Trumpet & Cornet), Ruth Ann Hutchinson (Vocals), June Fellows (Vocals) and J.Z. (Jazz Drums); Ritual All 770 were a group of improvisors living in Providence, Rhode Island. (Perhaps they could be considered the sonic forebearers of the Fort Thunder scene...) Rejecting the notion that avant garde music was solely the realm of isolated academia, they delved fearlessly and joyously into their music, creating a work that sounds fresh nearly 40 years later." - Fire Museum.

Artist: UTON & VALERIO COSI
Title: Käärmeenkääntopiiri
Format: CD
Label: Fire Museum
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Perhaps this collaboration was destined to happen, and were overjoyed that it is happening here! Tampere, Finlands Uton (Jani Hirvonen) and Taranto, Italys Valerio Cosi (who is ? of Pulga) are two of the most creative and most prolific musicians working in experimental music at the moment, and on Käärmeenkääntopiiri, Uton and Valerio have mastered a sound that combines elements of psychedelia, free jazz, Krautrock, environmental sounds, drones and more for an ecstatic listening experience. A mélange of electronic and acoustic instrumentation join together as naturally as the coming of the tides. By turns meditative and forceful, introspective and extroverted, all the while commanding undivided attention from the listener. This is experimentation that remains inviting even in its darker passages. 2007 has been a banner year for both of these musicians, and this release finds them in top form, creating a work that shows exactly why they are in such high demand. Käärmeenkääntopiiri will leave you hoping this is the beginning of many more collaborations between these two." -Fire Museum.
