The stickers poster and T-shirt were part of the funding campaign.


Mine arrived today with a couple stickers and a bonus CD of Here Geisha & The Boobs!

I've yet to hear a single thing released in 2018 that made me stop and listen - intentionally - for more than 20 seconds.

Listening to it at the moment. This is not a band I'd heard of before, but it's a pretty good album.


Neither had I heard of the band. I understand it's got some relation to Tool, the same leader or something.

My favourite so far still has to be Seas of Change by Galahad.
Check out my music on my bandcamp!

Apparently Art Zoyd came out with another box set called Phase V already in Jan. 2018. Unfortunately I can't connect to artzoyd.net right now so don't know much but it seems it's 5 CDs of material recorded between 2009 and 2017. Has anyone heard this already? Has it overlap to stuff that is already published? (I should get it regardless but anyway...)

^ I haven't listened to it yet, but it's all unreleased material. I suspect if you like the things they've been doing recently it's at least worth a listen.

I have heard few almost great albums, mostly outside prog. Really wait that new Parish-album!

I was intrigued to see cover art by Angel Ontalva. And actually the music reminds me quite a bit of October Equus - which is no bad thing in my book - albeit compositionally a little looser.

I got the CD of this, and it's really grown on me. Very absorbing album, and just about the only thing that's tearing me away from the Zappa binge I'm on at the moment.

New releases I've been listening to this month:

Apr 27: PinioL - Bran Coucou: This one seems to have gathered quite a bit of attention here already. An absolute nutcase of an album, coming from the merger of French avant groups PoiL and Ni. I think I still prefer the last two PoiL albums, but this is awesome nonetheless.

May 5: Not a Good Sign - Icebound: Dark symphonic/eclectic prog from Italy, composed mostly by Paolo Botta (Ske). David Jackson of VDGG fame appears on one of the tracks! It didn't grab me right away, but I love 1000 Autunni and will have to give it some more time.

May 18: Ben Levin Group - Our Place: The new album from Bent Knee's guitarist, Ben Levin. I'm not entirely sure how to describe it, but I think it's my favorite he's done. Great mix of electronic & acoustic instrumentation.

May 25: Cheer-Accident - Fades: CA has rapidly become one of my favorite bands since I heard last year's Putting off Death. Fades sounds completely different from that album, focusing more on shorter, "rockier" songs. I wasn't sure what to expect given how recent their last release was, but this is great.

Still looking forward to the new Jack o' the Clock, which is coming out this Friday. Also looking forward to the new Phideaux, due for release sometime this summer (hopefully).

^ Leucocyte is still my favorite from EST, but Live In London is a damn close second.
