Todd Dillingham Vilse i Pannkakan Electric Orange Three Dimensional Tanx Yuri Morozov
Yuri Morozov: Strange Angels (Buried Treasure)
- this is a 27 track compilation of experimental + electronic music from 1970s soviet Russia, banned by the KGB for its esoteric content & references to forbidden spiritual texts. Yuri recorded over 40 albums from the early 70s until his death in 2006. Compiled by Alan Gubby (The Delaware Road / Revbjelde)
“Goblin-esque prog, industrial folk, stoner metal & primitive cyber glam - this is the most mind-blowing, engaging album you’ve never heard by a legend from the other side of the world”
The Big Takeover
"wonderful psych, prog, electronic & library funk madness"
Soul Jazz / Sounds Of The Universe
