Gargantua’s music provides a mind-boggling abundance of colors, moods and compositional schemes. Dense polyphonic structures are interwoven with seemingly harmless, “mock-heroic” tunes, morphing into either jagged interplay of guitar and replicated violin, or irreverent choral enunciations, electronic soundscapes and piano staccatos. Carnival fights here with Lent, seriousness with the grotesque, corporeality with sterility, baroque excess with ascetic introspection. This is a truly “Pantagruelian” vision of music that is self-conscious, self-mocking and highly goal-oriented. And surprising as it may sound, its intransigent, mathematical logic does not prevent the Polish artists from playing with a sharp rocky edge…

Keeping their anonymity, Syrinx are comprised of four musicians playing acoustic guitar, bass guitar, keyboards, drums and occasional flute. Syrinx normally is a nymph who works in the world of sound creation. As musicians, they are obviously influenced by all sort of music. The musical construction of Syrinx is called "Metamorphic Music" lending within a different texture to the complex arrangements. An excellent instrumental band between Priam and Taal, but more melodic.

Van Der Graaf Generator is an English eclectic progressive rock band with front man Peter Hammill from 'the classic period' that has proven be one of the most important bands of the progressive genre. An eye-opening trip to San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury during the summer of 1967 inspired British-born drummer Chris Judge Smith to compose a list of possible names for the rock group he wished to form. Upon his return to Manchester University, he began performing with singer/songwriter Peter Hammill and keyboardist Nick Peame; employing one of the names from Judge Smith's list, the band dubbed itself Van der Graaf Generator (after a machine that creates static electricity), eventually earning an intense cult following as one of the era's preeminent art rock groups…

Shadowfax. Nice name for a progressive rock band. At least that's how they started off. Named after Gandalf's a horse in Tolkien's The Lord Of The Rings. They are often classified as new age, but their first album really wasn't, it was rather quite like a more rocking version of Oregon and had a mixture of hard and soft songs. And really their latter albums weren't completely although they lost some of their harder edge and devoted themselves to more mellow fair…

White Hills offer a unique brand of heavy space rock and some kraut/post rock ambience, experimental, provided with hypnotic grooves.
After releasing a series of limited-edition CD-Rs (one of which, They've Got Blood Like We've Got Blood, came to the attention of space rock über fan Julian Cope, who remixed it and reissued it on his own label in the U.K.), Heads on Fire is the band's proper debut album. There is little subtlety to Heads on Fire: most of the album's six tracks are straightforward, heads-down jamming in the grand Hawkwind/Bevis Frond tradition, barring only the minute-long spaz-out "Return of Speed Toilet," and the 26-minute epic "Don't Be Afraid"…

Bosch's With You were a Russian instrumental post-rock band, formed in Moscow in 2004. Conceived initially as a solo-project of Dima T. Pilot (1980-2009), guitarist and founder of the noise-rock band Pilots Up In Ssmoke (active from 1999 through 2006), that project soon grew into a four-piece band know for its charming and intriguing stage performances. From 2004 through 2009, Bosch's With You produced 8 albums in total including vinyl-only LP for the US-based KNVBI Records and 3”EP for Chat Blanc Records from Canada. In their years, Bosch's With You went through several personnel changes, though the creative core of guitarists Dima T. Pilot and Andrei B. remained relevant and meaningful. This is well structured and rich in textures post-rock with moody melodic lines, soft intelligent rhythmics, and lots of organic and found noises.

They brought to the late 60's music scene in the Bay Area a soulful sound built around a horn section, sophisticated arrangements, philosophical themes, Bill Champlin's songwriting and blue-eyed soul singing, and Terry Haggerty's jazz-based guitar. They are one of the 1960s San Francisco bands, along with Jefferson Airplane, The Grateful Dead and Moby Grape…

Even if comparisons with Lennie Tristano, Al Haig and Bud Powell are inevitable, Dodo Marmarosa's music has a surrealistic imprint essentially unlike that of any other pianist in or out of bop. In honor of this cardinal truth, the Lone Hill Jazz label has come forward with the Complete Studio Recordings of the Dodo Marmarosa Trio (including alternate takes), bringing together three different West Coast sessions from 1946 and 1947, four selections waxed in his home town of Pittsburgh in 1950, and an entire second disc's worth of mature Marmarosa material recorded in Chicago in 1961 and 1962.
