This album was recorded in Stockholm, Sweden on Dec 4-6th, 2015. This session was less improvised but recorded in several improvised layers with a few special guests joining in as well. The music is much more synthesizer based with KG playing amazing 70s inspired synths and organ, as well as bass, guitar, and sitar. Dr Space creating spacey sounds and drones, while Love performed a spoken word, and providing all the drum and percussion parts. The addition of Violin and Santoor really took the two Indian inspired pieces (Khan Paan, Øscilations in D-Minor) to another level. A fantastic instrumental, Kraut inspired ethnic musical journey!

Italian | CBR + PDF | 100 pages | 107 MB

È tempo di un nuovo raduno per gli scout dell'Erondàr! Questa volta, però, non si terrà all'aperto, bensì tra le mura di un vecchio albergo dove Ian, Gmor e Sera giungono all'imbrunire, insieme a compagni e amici come Ewyan, l'elfo del Nord, Briana, con la sua lupa, i gemelli Jinza e Kyoden e al comandante Yeraban Sarra. Durante la cena, gli argomenti di conversazione sono le vecchie mappe e i racconti di viaggio: ciascuno, naturalmente, ha le proprie avventure da narrare: storie di predoni Ghoul, selvaggi Giganti, enormi e brutali Troll… Insomma, la quotidiana lotta per la sopravvivenza degli scout!

Composer Niels Gade ( 1817-1890) is considered to be the most influential Danish musician of his time. He was also a successful teacher, conductor, violinist, and organist. This release is the second volume in the exploration of Gade’s chamber music, and includes his String Quartet in E minor with extra movements, the first movement of a Piano Trio in B-flat major, and Scherzo in C sharp minor for Piano Quintet. “Even in the intricate texture the individual voices remain transparent; the focus on what is essential is more important than everything experimental. The MidtVest ensemble relies on flowing lines, not on leaden ritardandi, on well-rounded formulations instead of roughly delineated blocks.” (FonoForum of Vol. 1).

Grand Funk Railroad, sometimes known as Grand Funk, is an American rock band that was very popular during the 1970s, they toured extensively and played to packed arenas worldwide. David Fricke of Rolling Stone magazine once said, "You cannot talk about rock in the 1970s without talking about Grand Funk Railroad!" Grand Funk Railroad has certainly had their fair share of compilations released over the years. This set takes the albums in the well named Trunk of Funk and releases them in two bite size chunks. For long time Grand Funk fans looking to replace their vinyl with remastered CDs, the two Trunk of Funks boxes are a good way to start. Included in the box one are the group's first four albums - their 1969 debut, On Time, and their 1970 trio of releases (something that is unheard of nowadays by modern rock bands), Grand Funk, Closer to Home, and Live Album - plus previously unreleased tracks.
