Qubism 2294 and Miasma 1195 (em:t).  $30 a piece, pretty decent prices I think.

Just received Icebreaker/BJ Cole's take on Eno's "Apollo". Very nice, not very electronic.

Headonist, thanks for the Ishq update!

the nicest sonic surprise of this month :)
though that GBP-EUR rate really hurts!

Oh yeah! Count me in on the Ishq and Ishvara, just ordered both.  The Ishq release is limited to just 200 copies (the other Virtual releases are usually 500) and comes in a digipak as opposed to Virtual's usual jewel cases.  I'm sure it will sell out pretty quickly.  Sound samples were very pleasing to the ear...but then again, I love everything about the label so every release is an automatic "must buy"!!   :)

Got an email from Virtual announcing these releases and the email says the Ishvara disc is limited to 300, not 500 as stated on their website.  Awaiting confirmation from them about this.

Per Jacqueline of Virtual (and one half of Ishvara with Ishq), the Ishvara "Under a Hexagon Sky" CD is limited to 300 copies; they are correcting it on the website. 

I suspect they are going to do smaller runs of CD's from now on like Namlook has been doing (300 copies), I would guess due to slower CD sales these days and more cost-effective downloads. 

With shipping included from the UK to US, it worked out to $19 per CD, which is pretty reasonable to me for an import.

My Bloody Valentine- E.P's 1988-1991.  Expensive 2-CD import but really good collection here, remastered by Kevin Shields.  Music made on drugs to take drugs to (or something like that).  Saw these guys live around '93/94, it was like being inside an airplane hangar (but in a good way).

Ride-Nowhere 20th Anniversary edition.  This is a "handmade" limited run on Rhino, consisting of two CD's--the remastered Nowhere album plus Today Forever e.p., and a second disc recorded live in '91 at the Roxy in L.A.  The live disc kicks some serious ass.

Klaus Schulze-La Vie Electronique Vol. 11.  3 discs of KS weirdness circa '93.  This was the period where he was using all digital synths, computers, and samplers.  A little too much of that weird "opera" sampling like on "Dome Event" for my ears, although some of it's quite nice. 

Yagya-The Inescapable Decay of My Heart.  I just ordered this so I haven't heard it yet (in its entirety).  Uh, not exactly the world's greatest title for an album, but I'm sure the music will be sublime as usual for Yagya.
