[Music] Paul Schütze – New Maps Of Hell

Australian-born, England-based composer Paul Schütze hasn’t been terribly active musically for a few years now, but not because he hasn’t been creative. These days, it seems that his passion is in making perfumes of exquisite quality.

Still, it’s nice to go back to hearing the masters after enduring a barrage of good, but not-quite-brilliant ambient music releases.  This classic was first issued in 1992 by Extreme Records in Australia and followed up by Big Cat in the United Kingdom.  Hopefully New Maps II will also be reissued forthwith.

[Music] Rodion G.A. – The Lost Tapes

Rodion Roșca (in Romanian) was one of the most bizarre and enigmatic musicians to come out of Romania. He was known mainly by those into freaky experimental music or progressive rock. For a quick glimpse of Rodion’s work, check out this link.

[Music] Album Premiere: Girls on Film 1979 Demo EP by Duran Duran feat. Andy Wickett

My brother and I, and millions of boys and (especially) girls grew up with Duran Duran. That Cleopatra Records, undoubtedly the kings of the reissue scene, would release these demos done with former singer Andy Wickett comes as a pleasant surprise.

The Big Takeover Magazine has plenty of background information on this intriguing release, and do take the time to hear Girls On Film in a very raw, far less-polished but perfectly acceptable form.

[Music] HJ Ayala – Wires

HJ (Hector Javier) Ayala is a free-jazz/experimental guitarist originally from Mexico who is now residing in Strasbourg, France. His new release is experimental in the most relaxed and mellow sense of the word. A truly enjoyable release, especially since not only does HJ have his own style, but he references artists such as John Scofield, John Abercrombie (may his name be eternal) and even John Fahey (also, memory eternal). Gorgeous but challenging material here.
