OUT NOW :: 19 NOVEMBER 2 0 1 8 :: Robert J Zimmer? / Robert J Zimmer? (2018, R106 CD/DD)
RAIG is proud to present the debut CD-album by the instrumental ensemble ROBERT J ZIMMER? from Chicago, IL USA. The septet plays remarkably mature, evocative, eclectic, polyrhythmic, polymorphic, and illustrative instrumental music at the intersection of Progressive Rock, Jazz-Fusion, Experimental Rock, and Contemporary Cinematic with lots of stylistic shifts and tangles. Yet despite its complexity and challenging character, the album features very enjoyable and refreshing music full of live and captivating images. Highly recommended for both connoisseurs and mass audience. CD (8 tracks - 45 min.) comes in full-color 4-panel gatefold. Label price: $13.00 + shipping.

This is the first ever publication of Vladimir's solo music, and the first recording from the unfinished "Nebulae Music" cycle inspired by the interstellar Nebula phenomena. The music was performed, recorded, and mixed live in one take, with vintage analogue synthesizers/keyboards and 4-track portable recorder. No overdubs, with recent slight editing and mastering. "Nebulae Music I" is a charity publication. It is free to download, yet all money donated will be used to support the artists family. Download from Official R.A.I.G. Bandcamp.
 


 
Farewell to Vladimir Konovkin (02.11.1967 - 15.09.2018) - our beloved friend, family man, founder and mastermind behind KALUTALIKSUAK. May you rest in peace, Friend. You have left a void in R.A.I.G. no one can fill.
 


 
OUT NOW :: 01 SEPTEMBER 2 0 1 8 :: Bunnies / Transportation To Mind Transformation and Devoted To The Process Of Action (2018, R105 CD/DD)
RAIG is proud to present the CD-release by the experimental/progressive/psychedelic band BUNNIES from Northampton, MA USA. This is a two-in-one album featuring BUNNIES' newest album "Transportation To Mind Transformation" (April 2018) and their previous EP-album "Devoted To The Process Of Action" (December 2013). Both recordings appear in their entirety and original form, and work together as a single set surprisingly well. CD-release showcases a distinct band's sound as well as increasingly sophisticated approach to the composition and arrangement that is beyond any particular subgenre cliches. This set is not everyone's cup of tea. But whatever rock-subgenre you admire - whether surrealistic and futuristic space-kraut-psyche or rock-in-opposition progressive avant-garde - if you value the inventiveness, expressiveness, imagery and challenge of modern rock-music, you shouldn't ignore the World of Bunnies. CD (4 tracks - 64 min.) comes in full-color 6-panel gatefold. Label price: $13.00 + shipping.
