Witch
In The Past

Now-Again continue to tell the story of Witch and their garage rock/funk hybrid by reissuing 'In The Past', a record initially released back in 1974. Witch -- also known as We Intend To Cause Havoc - fused genres gleefully into a sound unprecedented within the Zambian scene beforehand. 'In The Past' is a Zamrock cornerstone.

Oneness of Juju
African Rhythms

African Rhythms by Oneness of Juju does what it says on the tin to some degree but also delves deep into jazz and funk making mystical Afro-beat that has drawn comparisons to Sun Ra and Alice Coltrane. This is a one time re-pressing of their classic 1975 era opus which comes with a deluxe booklet featuring extensive liner notes.  

Oneness of Juju
Space Jungle Luv

Space Jungle Luv is the second album by Oneness of Juju. It was originally released in 1976. The band, led by saxophonist James “Plunky Nkabinde“ Branch play a brand of funky, cosmic jazz which allows Branch’s sax to take flight. This album features jazz pianist Joe Bonner. Reissue on Now Again.

David Axelrod
Songs Of Experience

Wait! Come back! This isn't a reissue of that U2 album, I promise! This is David Axelrod's second album first release in 1969, and the sequel to Songs of Innocence. Like his first album, this is a lushly orchestrated interpretations of the poetry of one William Blake. As the name might suggest, this time Axelrod was concerned with the darker aspects of life.

David Axelrod
Earth Rot Instrumentals

The plush compositional style that the late David Axelrod laid down in the 1960’s still exerts great influence on popular music. His way with orchestral arrangements - post-Library, proto-Lynchian - is instantly recognisable when it crops up in the work of everyone from Adrian Younge to Tyler, The Creator. It makes sense, then, that someone thought to strip out all the vocals and just focus on Axelrod’s instrumentals. 1970’s Earth Rot, a LP in which Axelrod started to explore jazz further than on his previous records, is the lucky album this time around.

David Axelrod
Song Of Innocence

Long awaited reissue here from David Axelrod, who made a touching tribute to poet William Blake in Song of Innocence. Deceptive in its welcoming, cozy melodic furniture, it becomes an odd, illusory piece of work, infused with unexpected chords, jazzy timbres and baroque displacements. Axelrod's songs never end up the same ones you stepped into; this is a classic of both another time and place.

Atomic Forest
Disco Roar

A newly exhumed gem from the only-recently re-discovered Indian underground / psychedelic scene of the 1970s, Disco Roar is the third album from the collective Atomic Forest. It comes on Now-Again records, who’ve made it their mission to tell the story of the band itself and the scene of which they were a part on 2011 anthology Obsession, but even they weren’t aware of this hidden treasure at the time.

Heliocentrics & Melvin Van Peebles
The Last Transmission

Hot on the heels of their joyous collaborative 2LP with Afrobeat trailblazer Orlando Julius, London's leftfield funk heroes Heliocentrics are at it again, this time on an LP with Melvin Van Peebles, a filmmaker, musician and author best known for his Brer Soul trilogy of albums in the '70s and for writing, producing, scoring, directing and starring in the 1971 film 'Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song'. The result is an interplanetary space/love odyssey which the band consider their defining work.

Karl Hector & The Malcouns
Non Ex Orbis

Third album, and first in ten years from kraut-jazz-rock band Karl Hector & The Malcouns. The band are from Munich, historically fertile ground for krautrock producing the likes of Amon Düül and Popol Vuh. On Non Ex Orbis The Malcouns do their city proud, improvising around their experimental brand of music.

German Oak
Down In The Bunker

Reissue of a notoriously misunderstood and misrepresented album and band. German Oak’s Down In The Bunker was literally recording in a bunker, and is a looming, dark, psychedelic prog/kraut rock album which got matched up to WWII imagery and references without the band’s input. Presented for the first time on vinyl with their consent the package includes extra previously unreleased tracks and images.

Pride
Pride

Highly influential recorder, producer and composer David Axelrod teamed up with offspring Michael for this rather obscure project. Nooney Rickett’s mournful voice dances over Axelrod & Son Ltd.’s arrangements of faintly Latin-tinged, 1970s West-coast psych; all elegantly sun-baked, throat-parched and artfully dreary.

Lightmen Plus One
Energy Control Center

Bubbha Thomas, bandleader and drummer, worked in the background, touring the US with R&B revues and playing as a session musician.He was then inspired and affected by the civil rights movement of 1960s America and the trailblazing music of John Coltrane. He formed his band The Lightmen. Energy Control Center, his third LP is a masterpiece of '70s maverick, spiritual jazz from Houston, Texas.

Amanaz
Africa

Amanaz were one of the premium exponents of Zambia's Zamrock music, and Africa is one of the premium examples of their sound. The fuzz guitars and the shuffling, driving drums back up a gnarled-up vocal style, as the group actively rage against colonialism’s legacy. Double LP reissue on Now-Again.

Paternoster
Die Ersten Tage (The First Days)

Rare Austrian prog-providers Paternoster only ever released one album, but there is more to their story than that! They also made a soundtrack to a ‘hippie sci-fi’ film called Die Ersten Tage in 1971, which was never released on record… Until now! This presentation of the soundtrack additionally adds in demos from their debut album, also incredibly rare. A crucial addition to Paternoster history.

Power To The People / I’m Not Selfish

Greasy Zimbabwean funk from Stars Of Liberty & Eye Q. Following the Now-Again 7" limited repress series comes Power To The People / I'm Not Selfish. These heavy afro-funk rarities tell the story of the public unrest happening in Zimbabwe in the 70's. Both tracks spoke out against the repressive regime in the funkiest way possible.

Kaleidoscope
Kaleidoscope

A much required vinyl pressing for what the press release calls 'one of the great psychedelic rock albums of all time'. Kaleidoscope emerged out of the West Coast of America in the late '60s with a drenched reverby sound that must have had influence on the Doors and later era line ups of Love never mind the Brian Jonestown Massacre. This vinyl re-press comes with bonus photos and the story of the band.

World's Experience Orchestra
As Time Flows On

An underground gem from 1980 has been given the reissue treatment, yet still seems completely relevant now. It's a gorgeous mixture of Sanders-esque devotional jazz, Don Cherry's instrumental freedom, British pastoral psychedelic rock and a lyrical execution that's half crooner, half spiritual doctrine. Just lovely.

Peace
Black Power

Black Power by Peace was released in the mid 1970’s, and it has taken as long as this for it to see an official reissue. And yet this is one of the premium albums of the whole Zambian Zamrock scene, a groovy and soulful thing. It is also the only album that Peace ever made. In print once more, with a booklet, courtesy of Now-Again.

Rodinia
Ex Anima

Rodinia continues JJ Whitefield's exploration of krautrock themes by pulling himself away from the lure of lengthy ambient vacuums, instead focusing on shorter songs a la Neu or Harmonia, so expect greater focus & condensed atmosphere this time around. With Now-Again curating and art by Jason Jagel (of DOOM cover fame), this is sure to be a gem that'll hypnotise for many trips to come.

Witch
Lukombo Vibes

Never forget the sound of Zamrock, Zambia’s 1970’s response to the rock’n’prog boom going on in the Anglocentric world. Bands like Witch took those styles and filtered them through immense funk and Afro rhythms for something particularly special. Lukombo Vibes is their 1976 fourth album, now remastered and reissued by Now-Again.

Drumside / Dreamside

Rodinia have put together a wonderful rhythm-fest here for this LP. The two members started off with a jam on a stack of synth equipment, and later on added drums and other instruments. It feels like every aspect of the sound-field is in some way rhythmic, yet also a little ambient in texture. Drumside / Dreamside is released by now Again.

The Heliocentrics
13 Degrees Of Reality

13 Degrees Of Reality was the Heliocentrics second album originally released in 2012. Their debut Out There had been a magnificent mix of funk, jazz, krautrock and Music Concrete but the band took things further on an album which took in influences from Afrobeat and Latin music. They have many admirers with Madlib, DJ Shadow and Mulatu Astatke all self confessed fans of their work. Now is the time to join that queue if you haven't already.
