Review: Tangerine Dream's 1975 album Ricochet gets a vinyl reissue. Consisting of only two tracks, both parts of "Ricochet" are shifting soundscapes in the best arpeggiated 70s tradition and bonafide classics of the genre, influencing everyone from Emeralds through Oneohtrix Point Never. Essential.
Review: Here's something of a treat for fans of experimental, cutting-edge jazz: a rare recording of legendary French drummer Jacques Thollot - accompanied by some of his regular musical collaborators - captured at a live performance at the Faculty of Law, Paris, in 1969. Thrillingly free and fluid, it features Thollot not only providing his usual loose and frenetic percussion, but also tape loops. The highlight is undoubtedly the epic A-side workout - a 22 minute trip into psychedelic headspace - though there are plenty of gems to be found on the flip, too, not least the atmospheric, slow-burning "2" and Stockhausen-ish, delay-laden "3".
