    Re: Motorpsycho's eras, I'd divide the latest era into two: the Kapstad era (Little Lucid Moments - Here be Monsters) and the Järmyr era (The Tower - today). The band sounds significantly different, and so do the albums.
    They were proggier and wilder when Kapstad was in the band, whereas the current era is doomier and more rooted in traditional metal and late 60's heavy psych.

    And this was their most interesting period to my ears. I ended giving away everything else they did before of after that era, with the exception of Phanerothyme and It's A Love Cult.

    One of my fav tunes by Motorheadpyscho is "Into the Gyre"....that's the tune that made me a believer (plus Matt's enthusiasm). I still haven't heard a boatload of stuff but really loved everything I have heard.

    Is this a compilation from their entire discography?

    I suppose any individual example can be cited as proof or counter-proof here, but a song like "Ship of Fools" from The Tower is every bit as ambitious and proggy as anything the band did previously. That closing section (the guitars carry the main theme, the mellotron/keys play a separate theme) is particularly jaw-dropping. Plus that opening riff is just glorious.

    In live settings, this is particularly evident:

    EDIT: Y'argh. I can embed that viddy, right?

    Nope. Guess I can't.

    Happy to spread the word, Frank!

    It's a collection of B-sides and odds and sods from the past decade or so. Not essential, so if there are other holes in your collection, I'd fill those first. (Or if you happened to buy the t-shirt with the album art on it, you should probably buy the album, too. Just saying . . . )

    Here are the sources (according to Prog Archives):

    1, 6: Previously unreleased from The Crucible sessions in 2018
    2, 5: Previously released on The California EP (2017)
    3: Previously released on Hyena / Bonny Lee (2006)
    4, 8: Previously released on Motorpnakotic Fragments (2014)
    7: Previously released on Spin, Spin, Spin (2016)
    9: Previously released on The Visitant (2010)
    10: Previously released on X-3 (Knuckleheads in Space) (2010)

    Pretty sure they played a few of the tunes on a recent tour.

    If I had to name one, this one would probably my favorite Motorpsycho album. It needs to get mentioned more often in this thread. :-)

    Motorpsycho are such a great band! Probably my favorite these days. I tend to go through band discographies at a frozen snail's pace, so I've only listened through It's a Love Cult, plus their three most recent albums, and I've enjoyed everything I've heard so far aside from maybe their first two. Unfortunately they're quite the expensive band to love if you live in the US, what with all the special editions and collector's items they have. Those shipping fees are pretty rough. I'd kill to see them live one day, apparently their live shows are fantastic.

    ^I have told my wife that we will take a trip to Europe if we can see Motorpsycho, too. Definitely a band I need to see live.

    That's it! I definitely like the Unicorn era over the Tower.
