    Steamboat got mentioned, but a couple of other Lucas Niggli projects might fit as well. The Zoom/Spawn of Speed record also has some pretty high quality brain frying stuff on it.

    Someone already posted Dawn. Not that recent anymore, but the Thønk album (Earth Vision Impact) is very much worth listening to.

    then Geneve's sextet (now XXL size) Orchestre Tout Puissant Marcel Duchamp's third album, released last year, with its "wild" minimalism have to sound cool to peculiar & dadaistic musical society

    the illustration on re-recorded cd version released in 2007 (i.e. thirty years after original lp release) is certainly better

    That's the way you used to do things in the good ol' days, Svetonio! Now how are those S Vremena Na Vreme videos coming along?

    I wonder where Gentle Friend, Daouburg, Deo and Juba all went? Back to Isle of Man, Belgrade or perhaps to Lugano?

    I hate using the ignore function but its the only option until the serial spammer is booted by the mods. And don't bother replying Svet I can't see it.
