The Endless House Foundation release on Dramatic Records has been my most listened to record for some time now. A conceptual compilation of tracks that came about from the idea of one man with an obsession for new technology and new sound. That man was Jiri Kantor, a millionaire who these days resides in the Adriatic city of Trieste. In the early 1970's however, he set up a foundation in his native Czechoslovakia for likeminded artists to come together as one and express themselves in the 'Endless House'. The compilation curates just a few of the tracks from the Endless House archives into a mindblowing taste of how things once were. You can hear more here.
This is an amazing release on Titan's Halo Records from cosmic krautrock duo Brain Machine. Alpha Beta Gamma is a 17 minute journey to one side of the galaxy and back, gathering pace all the time before burn up on re-entry. Trimmed down remixes come from the ever impressive Johan Agebjorn and Von Spar, who themselves released a cracking track on Areal's IRR label last month.

Kenton Slash Demon finish off their Schwarzchild Solution Trilogy in style with the magnificent Daemon, a track matched every step of the way by a stunning video by Dark Matters.
