Latest Two Robert Rich CDs Available

Two new ones at the Hypnos store, the two latest from Robert Rich:

Robert Rich – Nest
(Robert Rich category)
(Price: $13.99)

Latest from Robert Rich. “NEST begins with the kind of resolve many other CDs end on. With consonant chords and spare piano notes Robert Rich begins a wonderful journey through eight distinctive music tracks and contemplative moods. Although some of Rich’s work seems to dispense with the idea of beginning, middle and end, NEST does possess a vague compositional arc. Using steel guitar, bells, flutes, synthesizers, piano and environmental recordings, alone or in various combinations, Rich realizes beautifully detailed
soundscapes from just a small number of sources.”
– Chuck van Zyl/STAR’S END…

Robert Rich – Medicine Box
(Robert Rich category)
(Price: $13.99)

Ecstatic, shamanic, surreal, spiritual: Medicine Box may be Rich’s most dynamic album yet, an adept blending of technology with the ancient. Cheri Chuang’s wordless crystalline voice graces three songs, with traces of Persian inflection. Deep basslines hint at dub, while analog synth skitters and chuffs the outlines of a rhythmic grid, propelled forward by pulsing north African drums. Sustaining guitars bring a psychedelic edge. Cello and reeds echo plaintively in the distance. Rich’s sparse piano
adds droplets of modal jazz to this dark tea….

Many One-Copy CDs Added

Lena has been busy adding lots of used, single copy, and former promo items to the Hypnos Store. This used to be something I updated all the time, and over the last few years, the random odds and ends have accumulated like a giant snow drift up against the wall at Hypnos HQ.

Look HERE to check out what we’ve got. Newest additions are toward the bottom.

We’ve got CDs by Hafler Trio, Ian Boddy, Tetsu Inoue, Flying Saucer Attack, The Orb, and lots more. When they’re gone, they’re gone, so if you see something you want, you’ll need to snap it up.
