Sun Ra
Thunder Of The Gods

Previously utterly unheard, here is an album of Sun Ra material recorded around about fifty years ago (hard to say with precision due to the uncertain nature of Sun Ra scholarship).

SOPHIE
OIL OF EVERY PEARL'S UN-INSIDES

‘Oil Of Every Pearl’s Un-Insides’ is the most realised release yet from Scottish electronic artist Sophie.
