Vokokesh- Shadows of Things Past (Krauted Mind Records CD010/01-010/6)
This is a beautiful little box of unreleased experimental music recorded between 2005 and 2013 including two complete album, one called Welcome to my Cloud that was for a label that went bust and therefore it was never released and the other is rerecorded version of the F/I album, Why not Now?...Alan, which has also never been released. As most of you probably know, Vokokesh was a spin off band from F/i that has released a lot of material with Richard Frenecki leading the project. This is probably some of the last material featuring their guitarist John Hellwig, which passed way a few years back. The music is contained in three double sleeve digipacks with beautiful glossy sleeve artwork. Each CD tends to be about 40-50mins in length. There are only 300 of these made so check out the web site for how to get one.
