Hey guys, I'd like some recommendations for rock bands/particular albums that sounds pastoral (think of Harmonium) or just warm and comfy (like Future Days or Part the Second). Post Rock, Eclectic Prog, Symph Prog, Krautrock, you name it (just no metal, please).

Thanks in advance!

Hi there!

It's good to see you in the forum - I really enjoy your reviews.

Seeing as you are not specifically targeting the British variety I will give up all those goodies that didn't fit in the previous thread (their loss):

Witthüser & Westrupp - Trips und Träume
Morte Macabre - Symphonic Holocaust
Il Paese Dei Balocchi - s/t
Popol Vuh - Pick any album between Hosianna Mantra and well Sei Still, Wisse ICH BIN
Celeste - Principe de un Giorno
Spinetta Jade - Alma de Diamante
Yatha Sidhra - A Meditation Mass
Janus - Gravedigger
Floating Flower - pick an album
Bill Hassell w Eno - Fourth World Vol 1: Possible Musics (kind of a longshot but still...
Perry Leopold - Christian Lucifer

I will put on my thinking cap and come back with more.

Again I want to plug Uzva, one of the best jazz/fusion/world/instrumental bands I have ever heard. Give them a try, especially Uoma (their third album).

This just goes to show how subjective the response to music is! I love the MM album dearly, but it's pretty much the opposite of warm to me - unless it's warm in the crypt. To me it's creepy, unsettling listening.

I personally like the other two marginally better, but all three are outstanding, with not very much to choose between them.

I don't know the album nor the band, but given the name of both I'll believe you that it's the opposite of warm.

To me its both warm and unsettling. The title is somewhat misleading but obviously a combination of the beautiful theme music from Cannibal Holocaust (their cover version is almost identical to the original) and Morte Macabre's symphonic take on vintage horror movie soundtracks. The whole album in drenched in warm mellotron and moog. One of the two Fabio Frizzi covers:
More often than not the italian soundtrack composers made stunningly melancholic scores to accompany their (often combined) zombie/cannibal/soft porn-flicks. Here's the original:

Ragnarok!!

http://www.progarchives.com/album.asp?id=5602

One of the sweetest, warmest albums you'll ever hear. To imagine the band playing this at a high school talent show (which they initially did), is beyond belief. Pure magic recorded.

Good pick. His brother Jon made a record with a confusingly similar title that is also OK

Beautiful record!

Sticking with Sweden in the mid-seventies one might also mention the Berits Halsband album - a jazzier affair, and with some charmingly rough edges, but lovely and warm. Like a favourite pair of slippers

Warmest album I can think of? Osibisa's Woyaya, which has filled my heart with joy since I was a small child (oddly it was the only rock LP my parents owned when I was small - later, when I got bigger, I stole it). Incredible production by Tony Visconti that will fill your living space with brass, flute, percussion, chiming guitars, ripe Hammond, phat bass and the most delightful voices. You can play this instead of turning on the central heating,

Roy Harper - Stormcock

I suspect the Harmonium guys listened to this one a lot.

My favourite movie score ever by far. So haunting and melodic at the same time. Strangely fitting for the horrible events portrayed in the movie.
