The vocals on Cyclone take some getting used to. I understand why you feel this way.

Have you heard LOGOS or HYPERBOREA? Amazing work by TD there. Highly recommend those 2. :)


"Bent Cold Sidewalk" is a killer song, though! Gotta mention White Eagle along with those other two...anything that has Johannes Schmoelling on it, really. He elevated the band in a way even Edgar Froese did not.


Bent Cold Sidewalk is by far, my favourite track off the Cyclone album.
Love the beginning and end sections of the song. :)

Don't think I've mentioned ZOMBI's --Spirit Animal on this forum.

That is a keeper. Incredible soundscapes on that album.

I've got to go with Force Majeure. It's the only one I've heard of these and I haven't even heard the whole album.

Thank you for the information on here. There is an unknown group named Loop Guru and they are very psychedelic. I would not call it prog..

There is an independent band named Viima and they are out of Finland. I like them.

I am also independent.

I'm loving the new Mount Kimbie record - Cold Spring Fault Less Youth. I'd highly suggest that, if you want something new and fresh. Very minimalistic, but not really in the traditional sense, just very relaxed and abstract. I think it has potential to be a modern classic.

I'd say:-

Zombi - Spirit Animal
Radio Massacre International - Emissaries, Time & Motion
Steve Moore - Light Echoes
ARC - Church, Fracture
Ian

Haven't heard anything but 'Ghosts On Magnetic Tape', which is not really Bas Communion's greatest work (Loss is much more interesting), so no vote.

I love Zombi (can you tell?), but as soon as I saw Force Majeure, I knew where my vote was going. It is a bona fide classic that I've spent many years with. It never gets old. Great piano and guitar (and real drums, even) in addition to the electronics. Everyone should own it.

Hey Richard. I think you'll really appreciate the ZOMBIE: SPIRIT ANIMAL album.
It's got great spacey soundscapes and it's an album that will surely put you in the zone.
Give it a go when you can. Amazon has it for cheap right now. :)

Thumbs Up
order placed


You're going to want them all.

^Very nice electronic album indeedApprove

If you can imagine TD hooking up with Chris Squire and Neil Peart, then you're not entirely off.
