Hamadryad - Live In France 2006
Ikonen, Kari - Oceanophonic
I see a lot of concerts and a lot of concerts by musicians I know and also a lot by musicians I don't. One of the best concerts I saw in 2009 (and certainly the best concert I saw by a group I was completely unfamiliar with) was the Finnish group...

Kaczynski, Charles - Lumiere de la Nuit
Great, rare Canadian album with Kaczynski playing all the instruments and sounding like a band project throught the miracle of multitracking, that I never thought would be reissued on CD, but here it is! "Charles Kaczynski guested on the first Conventu...
Kadavar - Kadavar
For the right listener, or if you are in the right mood, this is basically perfect. "Perfect in what way?", I hear you ask. The review sums it up just so!

Kaiser, Henry - A Little Stroke of Light
This is the release that Henry was referring to in the notes to Everything Forever when he said he regretted releasing something only 70' long. Well, I'm gonna stick up for 70'. 70' can be a good thing. This CD, for example, is a very good thing...

Kaiser, Henry - Solo Acoustic on Beardsell Guitars

Kaiser, Henry - Where Endless Meets Disappearing: Solo Guitar 2009

Kaiser, Henry and Wadada Leo Smith: Yo Miles! - Sky Garden 2 x hybrid SACDs/CDs

Kaiser, Henry/Josh Mitchell/Rev. Heng Sure - Buddhist Stories for Awakening
