The second CD by German composer Asmus Tietchens is out now. Dämmerattacke is an ambient album originally released by Korm Plastics that comes with a couple bonus tracks not originally on the vinyl. Klanggalerie will celebrate 25 years of business in 2018 and we will celebrate that fact with a bang. Klang25 will be a two day event held in Vienna with 8 bands performing. As of today, half of them have been announced - Eric Random, Tabor Radosti, Ron Wright of Hula and Renaldo & The Loaf. Yes, you haven't misread: RATL will play their first concert in 38 years - after their only 20 minute live appearance in 1980. Tickets are on sale now, simply send us an order and we will send you an invoice. We are currently selling them for early bird price of € 50. Details can be found on the Facebook event page, a website will follow soon.
We have returned from a two week holiday which included seeing the latest show by The Residents in Hamburg which was fabulous. It was nice to meet the band, too - go and see them if they play around your area. First day in the office and we have a new item out: the beautiful compilation album Assumption/Ascension by Burial Hex, that includes two albums previously only available on limited edition cassette. Next will by Dämmerattacke by Asmus Tietchens, we expect this to be in stock in about a week. Stock on Thomas Leer's 1979 album is very low, please order now if you want to grab one of the last few copies available. There will be a couple more Klang releases before the end of the year, more info soon. In 2018 we will celebrate our 25th anniversary in Vienna with a twno night party that will include many great live shows - watch this space for further news.

On November 6th, evening, we close the office for a couple weeks. We'll probably meet some of you at The Residents' show in Hamburg, Germany. For you Rezheads, don't forget we have some other related items freshly available, too, like the Helios Creed album On the dark Side of the Sun and Tom Cora's Live at the Western Front. Or Chrome's Ghost Machine. And of course Bobuck's recently released collection Egg Booty. The double CD 13th Anniversary Show by The Residents is now out of print.
