    Don't be! Who the hell am I to tell anyone how they should post?

    Mainly, thanks for the tip. It hadn't occurred to me to look on Bandcamp for some reason, and I'd been thinking of buying the CD on Discogs. Now I got the download instead - saving a few quid, but more relevantly paying mostly to the artist instead of them seeing nothing from a used sale. I still really prefer physical media, but these days it's not the only consideration.

    Decibel has just released a 10 CD boxset on bandcamp for $80 that can also be downloaded for $20.

    I blame Wynton, what was the question?

    Thanks for the tip Ian. I've got the earlier Fiat Lux box set with three CDs and maybe that's enough...but at that price this is awfully tempting.

    Can you dig it?

    This is such a good record, that would fit equally well here or in the o/t jazz thread.

    EDIT: Yeah, I will get the Pillar album on Bandcamp come Friday (which will be another day when they waive their share so the artists / labels receive all proceeds). Link:

    If music featuring steel pans is what you crave, check this out.More in the jazz scene than anything else,for whatever that's worth. Beaver Harris 360 Degree Music Experiance.

    And talking of unusual instruments with a cracking bass and drums section, I've been very impressed with Stringpuree recently, who feature an electric kantele as their lead instrument:

    Senni Eskelinen Stringpurée Band is a quite good band. Especially live they are smoking! (I have seen them live maybe 3-4 times) However I don't know if there is much "avant" about them.

    That's nice stuff, thanks - and not what I was expecting, as I only really know Harris from his work with Albert Ayler, which is great but a lot further 'outside'!

    Wasn't there already an earlier boxset from them?

    Strange; almost as if they for some reason aren't allowed to reissue Contranatura on its own standing. I mean, I like the other releases of theirs - but this one somehow needs to stand on its own, IMHO. It very much forms its own whole.

    I'd love to see them live, but small chance of that here in the UK. I wouldn't say they are 'avant' but I don't know what other category they might fit into - given the bulk of the posts of this forum, anything that doesn't have a vocalist , has a lead a instrument that isn't a guitar or keyboard and doesn't sound anything like a well known 70s band, qualifies as avant to most people. I'd settle for 'unusual' which is where most of my favourite bands sit.

    Thanks for posting. I liked this enough to track down their last CD on Discogs. Always a happy moment when a package of music from Finland arrives...

    Senni Eskelinen Stringpurée Band's debut album from 2008 is still their best I think but other two album fine also.

    I listened to all three on Spotify, then bought Skizo and Fedja. Not a bad track on any of them, but I prefer the noisier tracks and overall Fedja is my favourite.

    I should think that'll go on my list...

    Fedja is the one you can't get, sadly. No copies on Discogs.

    There was - Fiat Lux - but it was just a three CD affair with El Poeta Del Ruido, Fortuna Virilis and In Concert Plus and some bonus tracks.

    I have it somewhere, but I can't find it.

    I've been checking out Wyxz from Paris, NY. They have an album coming out on Tzadik shortly, but here's their last:

    Scratches that high-precision math/avant/noise itch that I know we all have.

    Got mine through a Discogs seller only 3 weeks ago, so I guess I was lucky. If anyone is desparate, I found one on this site:

    Here's a new one to me, Darrifourcq/Hermia/Ceccaldi, featuring the drummer & cellist from the French avant jazz band In Love With with Belgian experimental saxophonist Manuel Hermia

    ^ thanks Ian, I like this a lot (but it's a bit frustrating that we missed this upon release 2 years ago).
