4 stars Miriodor continues its trend as the most accessible and inventive avant prog out there. Twitches, buzzes, dives, and lurches wind their way through musical muck that somehow makes sense and fits together as a coherent whole. As with their excellent previous record, Avanti!, some songs are stretched the the seven, eight, and nine minute marks, interspersed with some shorter sonic explorations.

In terms of highlights, I truly like the acoustic opener, obviously owing a debt to Bernard Falaise and his work with the Conventum reunion in 2012. This is not the only acoustic song on the disc, and this band keeps plugging away paving new terrain in the progressive world. I truly believe this group is the Can of its generation, decades and decades ahead of their time.

Miriodor is a sorely underexposed group, Cobra Fakir is a thrilling listen and fits very nicely in Miriodor's top notch catalog. If you haven't already, check out their previous albums from the 2000's. Fans of Univers Zero and the RIO movement will find lots to like here, and adventurous listeners will be rewarded handsomely.

Miriodor is recommended to jazz fans as well. This record could easy pass for jazz if Medeski Martin and Wood were creative enough to sound like Miriodor.
