    Yes, but you sent us (or rather just me) to Oteme, so I call the thing even for the moment. Great stuff!

    worthy of attention for this thread, IMHO



    my music collection increased tenfolds when I switched from drug-addicts to complete nutcases.

    I have been listening lots of Lindsay Cooper lately. I really admire she as an instrumentalist but especially as a composer. I think she is the one of the few avant-proggers who really crossed successfully also to the realm of real contemporary classical music (or art music).

    My favourite Cooper solo albums are Oh Moscow (1991) and Sahara Dust (1991). What about you?

    I got this one by mistake when my order got screwed up. It's a brilliant album with incredible sound and dynamics, and adventurous playing. Highly recommended!
    Just picked this up based on the recommendations, man this is a good album, wonderful stuff.

    Check this shit out, my fellow panheads:

    https://brucesfingers.bandcamp.com/album/arcaics-ii

    You might dig. It's a Finnish quartet of electric guitar, violin, double bass and drums which according to the Bandcamp page "combines post-serial composition and improvisation using a mix of chamber music and jazz-rock timbres". Which makes it sound rather more serene and less noisy and gritty than it actually is: quite a beast.

    My latest lockdown discovery is Spacesquid Brain, a 2019 album from Boltzmann Brain:

    Brutal space prognoise, somewhere between Flying Luttenbachers and Waste of Space Orchestra = right in my wheelhouse.

    ^^^ It is. Sounds like super-laid back, melodic Canterbury with Phil Miller wandering guitar leads. Thanks for posting Walt.

    Oh it has been released? Gotta check that one out. I have heard one song ("Heron") from it and it was quite interesting.

    I listened new JG Thirwell & Simon Steensland album Oscillospira today from Spotify and immediately afterwards ordered the cd. Brilliant album! It is of course too early to say but I think we might have new modern avantprog classic in our hands.

    What he said.

    I have heared it 5 times now and I will be very surprised if this album will not be on top of my best of 2020 list at the end of the the year.

    Personally I find it to be a tedious and offensive concoction of musical pigswill, the pretension of which is only exceeded by its utter banality.


    Well, not really. I actually bought it unheard based on the participants. Awaiting the CD, but based on the camples I share the excitement. Seems like they took the UZ legacy and are running with it...

    Speaking of which I’ve been playing the last Univers Zero album, Phosphorescent Dreams, this morning. I didn’t really give it much attention at the time, but it's a pretty strong effort. Though the tracks that stand out for me are mainly the Kurt Budé compositions - I must check out what else he's done.

    I suppose at this point that we do have to consider PD the 'last' UZ opus...

    Phosphorescent Dreams isn't a bad album at all, not up to the original run or Clivages, which I consider the best post Heatwave album, but pretty good.
