—01. Eliane Radigue’s Jouet Electronique.
If I had to single out one record label that could do with a little praise for being as deeply underground as it is important to documenting overlooked 20th century music, it would have to be Alga Marghen. Renowned for releasing a wide range of historical obscurities, outsider artists and new music compositions, the Italian label has issued important works by David Behrman, Max Neuhaus, Hermann Nitsch, Charlemagne Palestine and Eliane Radigue, among others. Though hard to find in most local record shops, there are a number of online stores that stock a variety of Alga Marghen LPs – of which one of my personal favourites is shown above.
