Many thanks for the suggestion!
 
The chap behind this project, Jarrod Gosling, is known for his work with psych-pop outfit I Monster but more recently has worked with Crossover Prog band Henry Fool. The Dissecting The Worm EP on bandcamp is a 5-track taster of the two forthcoming albums Use And Ornament (due out on 18th June, I believe on the Esoteric label) and Pig Views (currently being mixed). The soundcloud contains additional tracks, plus some I Monster stuff.
 
This is exceptionally good music and I recommend listening to all the samples. It's certainly accessible but I don't think Crossover is the right place for it. Whimsical, varied, catchy yet experimental, and sounding variously like Zappa, Caravan, Crimson. Multi-instrumentalist Gosling is joined by Mick Somerset on winds, with a few other guest musicians/singers helping out, but the main combination of keys and reeds really stands out. There are elements of jazz, experimental, psych, Canterbury - my money would be on Eclectic. 
 
Thoughts?

http://www.henryfool.com/ (free download of an EP)

 

The Free Henry Fool Download EP comprises the video edit of Everyone In Sweden from Men Singing, two Steven Wilson mixed tracks from Henry Fool's long-deleted 2001 debut (the 25 time oddity Poppy Q and the song Heartattack), plus an exclusive unreleased piece, A Canterbury Scene. Download it for free here (https://www.burningshed.com/store/henryfool/product/26/4611/).

As already stated, the bandcamp EP is an introduction to the two forthcoming Regal Worm albums 'Use And Ornament' and 'Pig Views'.
Regal Worm is the progressive rock alter ego of I Monster's Jarrod Gosling (aka. Varrod Goblink). Debut album released early 2013:


Varrod Goblink from I Monster and Skywatchers' progressive rock project. Established in April 2011.
Based in Sheffield.

Varrod Goblink: Mellotron, synthesizers, Hammond organ, Leslie speaker, combo organ, Rhodes piano, bass guitar, electric and acoustic guitar, drums, percussion, voice, bowed saw, glockenspiels, visuals, accordion, recorder, whistles, stylophone, mouth organ, home made stuff, direction, effects, pretentiousness
with: Michael Somerset Ward: Tenor and alto saxophones, alto and C flutes, whistles, bass clarinet, Jew's harp, shruti box, Maestro effects unit / words / Graham McElearney: Harp / Richard Bradley: EMS Synthi AKS, flexitone, vibraslap / Jack Helliwell: Violin / Nick Goblink: electric guitar / Lucy Fawcett: trumpet / Rebecca Allen: voice / Kevin Pearce: voice / Lucy Hope: voice / Peter Rophone: voice

I think we need to wait for the two full albums to be released before deciding for sure where this project would best fit, but Eclectic is certainly where I would expect it to end up based on what has been presented here so far. And yeah - it's shaping up to be some damn good stuff indeed! Thumbs Up

Unfortunately, the tubes that Svetonio posted in the OP are no longer available. The album should have been released on 15th July (as noted above) but was then put back to 1st August, and it now appears to have been delayed even further. Unhappy  I still think Eclectic would be the best place but need to wait for the album to appear on CD or bandcamp I guess. It's available as a download from Amazon so I don't know what the issue is.

Hi there !

I thought you'd like to know that Use and Ornament was released on 02/12 through the artists own label, Quatermass Records. 

Currently it is available through Burning Shed for online CD's, and via all the usual download sites, including the bands own bandcamp site http://regalworm.bandcamp.com/

There are a couple of free tracks too - you can get one via Bandcamp for the price of an email contact, or there is another one available via Burning Shed. 

Also, there is a You Tube channel, where all the videos now live http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQ9i4Xt7QQkQmMP2F_n775A

Cheers

Bert
