Porcupine Tree - Up The Downstair (Double Vinyl)

The first in a series of KScope vinyl reissues of Porcupine Tree's Delerium-era albums.

The 1993 classic, Up The Downstair, comes as a Limited Edition (2000 copies) double 180 gram heavy-weight red coloured vinyl release with gatefold sleeve, and features the 2004 remix/remaster of Up the Downstair/Staircase Infinities, plus the bonus track Phantoms (taken from the Stars Die anthology).


Richard Barbieri - Stranger Inside (CD)

Following the artistic and critical success of his 2005 debut album Things Buried, Stranger Inside further develops Barbieri's unique approach to texture, harmony and rhythm.

Writing and producing the album himself, the album includes contributions from long-term creative partners Steve Jansen (mixing/co-arranging), Steven Wilson (mastering), Gavin Harrison (drums) and the legendary double bass player, Danny Thompson (currently enjoying renewed acclaim as part of the reformed Pentangle).

Although instrumental in nature, most tracks feature radical and atmospheric manipulations of the sampled voices of Tim Bowness (no-man) and Suzanne Barbieri.

Released 15th September - Available for pre-order now.


Anathema - Hindsight (CD)

Released on Post Progressive imprint Kscope Music, in association with the legendary Peaceville Records, Hindsight is the first release of new studio recordings from Anathema since 2003's acclaimed conceptual album, A Natural Disaster.

Featuring selected favourites spanning the band’s career, as well as brand new track, ‘Unchained (Tales Of The Unexpected)’, Hindsight sees Anathema creating sensitive semi-acoustic arrangements - utilising acoustic, electric and orchestral instruments - that further develop the deep, emotional landscapes that Anathema has become justly renowned for.

Initial copies come in a special limited edition digi-book format - we are now down to the last few hundred copies.


Nosound - Lightdark (2 CD)

Formed in Italy in 2001, Giancarlo Erra's Nosound creates a seductive and original fusion of elements of Progressive, Ambient and Post Rock.

Regarded by critics and fans alike as one of the most interesting up and coming alt/art rock bands in Europe, Lightdark sees the Nosound identity evolve into something even more focused and powerful.

'Lightdark' inventively combines influences from '70s psychedelia, '80s/'90s ambient and contemporary alt/progressive rock.

This 2 disc edition of the album includes an exclusive 5 track bonus disc including the video for 'Lightdark'

Released 15th September - Available for pre-order now.


Kscope catalogue items also available:

No-Man - Together We're Stranger (Super Jewel Case CD/DVD-A)

The two disc Snapper edition of No-Man's Together We're Stranger comes with the original stereo mix on CD, a booklet featuring sleeve notes from Mojo's Johnny Black, super jewel case packaging and an audiophile 5.1 DVD-A surround sound disc, also including high resolution 24 bit stereo. Additionally, the DVD-A disc includes the Break Up For Real (drum mix), (bluecoda), the video for Things I Want To Tell You and a photo gallery.

The online edition comes with an exclusive postcard.


No-Man - Schoolyard Ghosts (CD/DVDA)

A distinctive combination of beautifully detailed songwriting, haunting melodies and inventively cinematic production, Schoolyard Ghosts sees No-Man’s Tim Bowness and Steven Wilson expanding the band's sonic palette by collaborating with, amongst others, Theo Travis, Pat Mastelotto, Gavin Harrison, and the London Session Orchestra (arranged by Dave Stewart).

Featuring the sweetly hypnotic Wherever There Is Light, the warped dynamics of Pigeon Drummer, and the subtly evolving explorations of the uplifting 13 minute semi-orchestral epic Truenorth, Schoolyard Ghosts reveals the band taking its music to an even more focused and personalised place than before.

Available as a lavish digipack CD/DVDA, black double vinyl and limited coloured vinyl with bonus 7 inch disk.


The Pineapple Thief - Tightly Unwound (CD)

With over 25,000 records sold since their debut in 2000, this Somerset based 5 piece are perfectly poised to break into new territory after signing a new deal with new label Kscope, a division of Snapper Music.

The band’s ‘bittersweet’ progressive sound has been nurtured over the past seven years over six studio albums. Initially a solo studio project by singer/songwriter Bruce Soord, the band evolved onto the stage as the ever faithful international fan base demanded it. In between recording sessions, the band has taken time out to play in front of thousands of fans, including sell out ‘invite only’ shows in the UK and festival appearances in Philadelphia, USA and Tilburg, Holland.
