I'd like to suggest Ex-Wise Heads for inclusion in PA.

The band consists of Colin Edwin (Porcupine Tree) and Geoff Leigh (Henry Cow)

The result is a mash of Jazz, World, Experimental and ambient. I'm not sure what genre they would fit it - this isn't my area of interest. But I thought they sounded pretty interesting.

I asked Syzygy about them in the ZART thread a few weeks ago, and we agreed they'd be a good fit for crossover for their blend of world music with avant textures and proggy elements.

If anyone's interested, you can get two full albums legally for free here:

and

Thanks for adding those albums Joel, I saw a link somewhere but I was too lazy to go back and find it. Tongue

I definitely recommend Holding Up The Sky, but both are good albums. Interesting stuff, but probably best suited to crossover for the reasons outlined above.

I was wrong - I didn't download the albums, and they can't be downloaded any more. Is anyone else receiving the same error message I'm getting? "Assertion failed. expected a fully-qualified base URL. Select Cancel to debug."
