Head in the Clouds various artists
double LP + double CD combined set strange fish eighteen/eighteen CD sold out
Over 200 minutes of music inspired by Tangerine Dream, Ash Ra Tempel,
Popol Vuh and the German electronic music scene of the early 70s.
A kosmische kompilation!
One or two names that are familiar to fans of Fruits de Mer Records are joined by many artists that are completely new to the label, to recall one of the most innovative periods in music of the last 50 years, when Germany began to create its own sounds and artists explored new musical territories that took them in a very different direction to their contemporaries to the West; the music was remarkable - it still is - and those influences continue to be heard in so much music that is being created today.
kosmische sounds, space rock without the rock, horizontal listening – however you want to describe it, this about as far from a mosh-pit as you can get.
This is a combined double LP + double CD set – no music is repeated between the two formats; many of the tracks have been recorded exclusively for ‘Head in the Clouds’, many more are getting their first physical release; the set is only available as a combined package (making it a 5 LP box-set would have been ideal but in these difficult, cash-strapped times, we decided to show a little restraint...for once).
