Following Light In The Attic's game changing I Am The Center box set, compiler Douglas McGowan (Yoga Records) returns with The Microcosm, a selection of key works from some of the most respected names in European visionary music, including Vangelis, Ash Ra Tempel, and Popol Vuh, along with overlooked masters like Robert Julian Horky and Enno Velthuys. Whereas I Am The Center called for a reconsideration of an entire maligned genre, The Microcosm requests nothing more than an open mind to consider this ambient, new age, neuziet, prog, krautrock, cosmic, visionary stuff, whatever one calls it - as a pulsating movement unto itself.
