TERRAPIN-SANCTUARY 2017 G.O.D. RECORDS

TERRAPIN-SANCTUARY

A NEOPSYCHEDELIC FOLK GEM FROM GREECE OUT ON VINYL AND CD FROM MAY 10TH!!

PRESS HERE LISTEN FREE,DOWNLOAD AND ORDER

COME ON FRIDAY 28TH TO SEE THEM LIVE!!!!!
“Sanctuary” is the debut album by Terrapin, a relatively new trio from Athens, Greece, consisting of seasoned musicians who have left their mark on the local scene (two of the three are founding members of acclaimed psych-prog rockers No Man’s Land). But this is much more than just a side project. Centered around the songwriting of guitarist/vocalist Vassilis Bas Athanassiadis, Terrapin explore the fields of folk rock, acid folk, psychedelia and beyond, in a mostly guitar-driven, acoustic setting, with frequent bursts of electricity.
The songs of “Sanctuary” were recorded from 2013 to 2016 and besides the core trio of guitar/vocals, bass and drums, the album features a bunch of trusty friends: renowned mandolinist George Goumenakis, young multi-instrumentalist (and brilliant songwriter in his own right) Robert Sin on keyboards, all-round cellist Stavros Parginos, Paul Karapiperis of Small Blues Trap fame on harmonica, and last but not least, the mighty Bill Hunchback on sitar.

G.O.D. RECORDS PRESENTS THE GEM OF THE WEEK! BOBBY BROWN-THE ENLIGHTENING BEAM OF AXONDA US 1972

Bobby Brown ‎– The Enlightening Beam Of Axonda By Bobby Brown Destiny Records ‎– DR 4002 US 1972


A rare private press by a genius multiorganist,multitalented,as he says with a 6 octave voice range (!!!!).This record is an experimental psychedelic spaced out weirdness with a flair of mysticism and as Bobby states recorded live in his trailer- home in Hawaii with sole audience his dog.If you thought you knew or played, very avant garde psych experimental music,well try to top this one.
Bobby could easily have a big career in music as whatever he chose to,he just didnt want to.In his trailer with his dog writting and singing his elegies is what he chose,and by the looks of his smile on the cover and the sunset behind him,i think he had a good point.

After all these years what remains is Beach Boys Carl Wilson's prophetic quote (among other praising ones) written on the back cover: "It's totally incredible,but it will never sell".
Written-By, Arranged By, Producer, Vocals, Harp [Irish], Koto, Drums, Kalimba, Flute, Sitar, Bass – Bobby Brown
This is the first pressing features the old style cover with glued on backcover art on heavy cardboard stock.
This edition feature neither address nor about playing on weddings, parties or concerts, nor the info "on phonograph - adjust the treble up alot and the bass down a fair amount" (I have also a $6 sign 3rd issue same year if anyone's interested to buy)

G.O.D. RECORDS PRESENTS THE GEM OF THE WEEK! FLYING KARPETS-FLYING KARPET MEXICO 1968

The Flying Karpets ‎– Flying Karpet Son-Art ‎– D-179 MEXICO 1968

LISTEN FULL LP PRESS HERE

One of the rarest psychedelic records from Mexico,highest rarity grading in Pokora's book R6 same as the Mexican Kaleidoscope.

In plain English you need to pay an arm and a leg for a decent original copy.
Musicwise we got here some covers and originals played with the best intentions,with off kite drumming and kinda monotonus vocals in an amateur a la Shaggs vein maybe one step better.If underproduced raw and naive, that sometimes reminds me of Cosmic Michael's or Arkesia's albums,is your thing then like me you'll be enthused.Even the Doors cover sounds zanny off kite but full of feeling and real by this guys. They re experimental and punk in their own way.My fav "That girl dont say much" with a crazy out of tune piano "Hooh-Hah!" shouting and fart noises,shows in a twisted way,this guys had something.
The surprise awaits on the last one 'Winter song' which is a killer psych folk tune!
