Shining Lotus - Mountain Magic

private press

beautiful washes of bliss water and harp feelings with some howling wind and organ meanderings on the a side. b side is a more pastoral affair with bird song choirs and more oceans with organ/synth trance outs. an astounding and super rare tape!

all thanks due to and welcome our brand new contributors at leaving records!

Upper Astral - Skybirds

valley of the sun publishing

descending deep into the valley of the sun. another absolute gem of a tape by upper astral. first side is an uplifting and triumphant journey full of marching pianos, synth arpeggio swirls, seagull & waves field recordings and even some vocoded vocals! second side mellows out into a more droney territory with electric piano and field recordings. INSTANT CLASSIC! enjoy!

"The voices are saying, "up, up, higher, higher, fly with me". They are projected in the same chord and frequency as the music, but only your subconscious hears them."

Dick Sutphen - Trance Sex

valley of the sun publishing

i have no idea who made the music on this but its the BEST new new age i have ever listened to.
the title is either awful or amazing, im not sure.
dive deep into this music. an hour long drone journey with a subtle pulse beat and reverby chimes, harps and ethereal vocals. 2007!!!!@#&^%@$@&^#@*^#@*&^*!&WTF????!!!!!!!

"The following words are repeated over and over behind the music -- unheard by your conscious mind, but perceived by your unconscious. “Sensual. Bonding. Seductive. Love. Sex. Union. Two into one. Arousal. Desire. Passion. Merge soul energy. Become one. Longing. Attain wholeness. Completeness. Love. Beloved. Whispered words. Whispered desires. Love. Passion. Melding. Merging. Intensity. Excitement. Love. Passion. Hunger. Thirst. Love. Craving. Carnal. Heat. Urgency. Love. Flesh. Tantalizing. Zeal. Stroking. Fondling. Love. Taste. Rhythm. Passion. Love. Satisfaction.”

p.s. sorry for the lack of posts around here....ive been busy with family/music life. i still have a large backlog of great records for you. stay tuned and stay patient! also please let me know in this thread of any expired download links and ill be happy to re-up. PEACE!

Zavijava Orchestra - Rivers of Light

mu-psych music (MP-6001C)

a lovely tape from the mu-psych label out of bensalem PA. this one has a balanced mix of acoustic instruments (harp, piano, vibes, cello, etc) and cosmic synth work. drifty, dreamy, floating textures to soothe your mind. check out 'magnetic dreamscapes', its a particularly great track! enjoy!

Anugama is kind of a 2nd rate Deuter, both floating in the ethno-new age territory. this tape is 2 side long tracks.
side 1: a slow burner with oms and chanting and handdrums. side 2: crickets & triumphant synth stasis.
a super nice tape, i have a bunch more anugama, ill try to find the good ones and post more soon.

Michael Vetter - Tambura Meditations UPGRADE

hi friends,
i finally got a 320kbps mp3 upgrade for one of my all time favorite albums.
its the CD version of Michael Vetter's 'Tambura Meditations'
check out the original post with the new link -> HERE!

you'll also find an LP rip made by me which is part of the Overtones, Voice and Tambura 2LP which i posted a little while back.
take your pick!

Deuter - Osho Nadabrahma Meditation


i figured it was time for some more deuter around here, its been awhile. deuter composed music for various osho meditation exercises. its hard to get a clear date on any of the recordings. but ive heard the music was "transmitted" from deuter to osho in the 70s (but the CD versions all say they are from the late 90s). anyhow! the first stage is blissed out bells and gongs mind quieting aura cleansing goodness. the second stage is lovely reed organ / accordion chord stasis with distant recorder melodies. and the third stage is 15 minutes of silence finished off with a final gong tone. deuter did music for a ton of osho meditations and most of them are good. ill put the best ones up here over time. enjoy!

"So in Nadabrahma, remember this: let the body and mind be totally together, but remember that you have to become a witness. Get out of them, easily, slowly, from the back door, with no fight, with no struggle. They are drinking - you get out, and watch from the outside...." -Osho

Hypnogogic Sound / Vibration Tape

valley of the sun publishing

hi friends, i really don't know much of anything about this tape. acquired it on the new age cassette black market in the dark of night, down an alleyway, you know the deal.....the music is raw, grungy, distorted, rumbling new age bubble bath. (not unlike some contemporary music by Evenings or Monsturo or Romero or something......) could be my tape copy is blown out or the recording was lo-fi or the years havent been kind to the magnetics. all i know is that it was released in 1982 (david keenan, sorry you were 25+ years too late). its part of the valley of the sun / dick sutphen new age axis. brain erasers, zappers, hypnosis, alpha/theta waves, binaural beats, MIND ELECTRONICS and all that! so my best guess is that this tape was made by dick sutphen or one of his cohorts.

enjoy the zones, its a special one.
(same program repeats on both sides, but i recorded each side because they seem slightly different to me.....)

much much more to come......

Symphonies Of The Planets - NASA Voyager Recordings

Symphonies Of The Planets - NASA Voyager Recordings

happy new year!
sorry for the lack of posts around here...

some outerspace music for you first....enjoy!

"SYMPHONIES OF THE PLANETS is a five-CD set that is now out of print. Put simply, it consists of recordings made by Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 as they passed by the various planets and moons of our solar system. Although sound as we perceive it cannot travel in the vacuum of space, each planet and moon emits its own electromagnetic "signature" that can be picked up by the right instruments, and those emanations can be converted into sound and recorded onto compact discs for your listening enjoyment.
