Psychedelic Progressive Rock

Progressive rock music has its roots in the mid 1960's psychedelic cultural phenomena. During that time the British Invasion and folk-rock bands began to expand the sonic possibilities of their music. These groups slowly started to abandon the concise verse-chorus-verse patterns of rock & roll, and moved towards fluid, free-form oriented song structures. Just as important was the incorporation of elements from Indian and Eastern music. Along them the principles of free-form jazz were included to the psychedelic sound, emphasising spontaneous emotions over calculated and estimated compositional constructions. Experimenting with new studio technology, electronically altering instruments and voices, was a part of this altered approach as well. Acid rock groups like THE JIMI HENDRIX EXPERIENCE and CREAM stand as descriptive and popular examples of the path from psychedelic sunshine pop towards a more aggressive and distinct rock expression, in particular showcased in their improvised live performances.

The boundary dividing the "Experimental" and "Progressive" classification is a thin and at times contested one for this era. The pioneering psychedelic progressive rock bands to be found at www.progarchives.com will in most cases be found in the Proto-Prog section of the site. Amongst these pioneering outfits are acts like THE BEATLES, JEFFERSON AIRPLANE AND VANILLA FUDGE. Artists such as PINK FLOYD will not be found there though, as their career extended well beyond these first, formative years.

Psychedelic progressive rock music may contain the elements previously described in varying combinations, but the artistic perspective of progressive rock is another factor. Some psychedelic rock bands stuck to the mid 1960's beat rock style in purist form, not partaking in the experimental development of the impressionistic possibilities of psychedelic rock music others spearheaded. The evolution of the psychedelic depth within a progressive context could be seen for instance in the 1960's recordings of ARCADIUM and BABY GRANDMOTHERS. One good example of early 70's Continental European progressive psychedelic rock is the album by AHORA MAZDA, and from Britain JADE WARRIOR's early efforts fuse psychedelic rock and ethnic music. Current artists exploring the vintage 60's/70's style and sound are acts like THE SPACIOUS MINDS and ACID MOTHER'S TEMPLE.

The entire Western pop culture scene was influenced by the psychedelic culture to some extent, including other prog genres such as Prog Folk. In Germany, artists influenced by the British psychedelic movement formed their own genre called KRAUTROCK. The pioneering early 70's bands in this genre represent the progressive acid rock sound of Germany, experimenting with long instrumental improvisations, emphasizing the use of psychedelic effects and weird electronic sounds. Some examples are artists like AMON D��L, ASH RA TEMPEL, CAN, G�A, NECRONOMICON and YATHA SIDHRA. The PROGRESSIVE ELECTRONIC style emerged from Krautrock. Some of the most influential artists of this genre, such as TANGERINE DREAM and KLAUS SCHULZE, explored a distinct psychedelic musical style at first, which was influential for the development of the "space rock" sound:


Progressive Space Rock

The late 1960's psychedelic rock scene also spawned the birth of the space rock genre. The pioneering acts of this genre assimilated krautrock elements like repetitive hypnotic beats and electronic/ambient soundscapes as they moved away from the common musical and compositional approach. The synthesizer with its bubbling tones and spacey patterns, provoking a gliding flow, is a typical instrument of this genre. Guitars are by preference played with glissando technique and delay/echo effects are heavily used, and elements originating from reggae/dub are fairly common. Several bands combine their live performances with trippy lightshows using random fractals. Albums in this genre will often include at least one long meandering jam based on a main theme, where loops and wavelike fluctuations provides slight variations to this structural foundation.

Stories, images, song titles and album names referring to cosmic themes are fairly common features of the genre. HAWKWIND's live album "Space Ritual" is said to be the ultimate space rock album due to the collaboration with sci-fi author Michael Moorcock. His lyrics are performed by a narrator and underlaid with synth elements. PINK FLOYD can be regarded as pioneers of spacey music during the band's early phase, as exemplified by certain tracks from "The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn" or the stirring live performance of "Careful With That Axe Eugene" from "Ummagumma". GROBSCHNITT provides another fine example of classic space rock with their epic effort "Solar Music". Other bands explored the space rock sound for a limited time period only. GONG released groundbreaking albums in the genre at the start of their career, while British hard rock band UFO released the extraordinary album "Flying - One Hour Space Rock" as their sole contribution to the genre in 1971.

A space rock scene can be found in most countries sporting artists producing music with a western-oriented or influenced sound. Swedish bands are known for a brisk exchange of musicians among each other. The "Strange Daze" festivals from 1997-2000 showcased the American space rock scene. Japan is an inexhaustible reservoir of artists exploring both psychedelic progressivce rock and progressive space rock. Representative examples of the style are bands such as ORESUND SPACE COLLECTIVE with their focus on long grooving improvisations, QUARKSPACE and OZRIC TENTACLES with their stronger emphasis on electronic elements and VESPERO and HIDRIA SPACEFOLK with their inclusion of ethnic-originating musical components. Other groups like ESCAPADE and THE LEGENDARY PINK DOTS represent an avantgarde approach to the genre, whereas SUBARACHNOID SPACE and KINSKI are examples of artists that provide transitions to the post rock genre.


The boundaries of Psychedelic Progressive Rock connected with Stoner Rock and Acid Folk

The 1960's and 70's were a time of liberation, a time of rebellion against rigid rules and strict moral boundaries. In those "freedom of expression" days, an artist would typically herald their liberal attitudes as a mind-expanding trip on stage together with the audience in two ways. One was to realize audio/visually the visual and auditory hallucination as it was, and another was to play their repertoire spiritually and improvisationally under the trip. As for the latter approach, they devoted themselves solely to slow-to-mid tempo playing with low-tuned guitars in a heavy and expansive manner for playing steadily under this twilight condition. In the same time period, this approach to the musical trip was also taken on by some artists especially in the hard rock and heavy metal scene. This new style, drenched in heavy and downer psychedelia, was called "Stoner Rock". The name originates from the expression "stoned", referring to people in altered states of mind while under the influence of psychedelic substances. The Stoner Rock genre was universalized "as a strict musical style only" by the Industrial Grunge Rock genre that gained worldwide popularity in the early 1990s. The common denominator of all the artists mentioned is the representation of their personal cultural and political backgrounds, whilst playing slow-paced depressive songs with heavy guitars and echoic rumbling drums as the dominating features. Most of current outfits claiming to be the so-called Psychedelic Heavy Progressive Rock ones should be much influenced by the traditional Stoner or Grunge Rock as well as the early Psychedelic Progressive Rock. They can be considered as a borderline case between Psychedelic Progressive, Heavy Progressive, and Progressive Metal.

"Acid Folk" can be mentioned as another musical style with hallucinogenic approach. Psych Folk or Psychedelic Folk are other names for this genre, and is vaguely defined as a rock subgenre due to the mixture of folk rock and psychedelic rock. This is a style lacking in strict definitions, and it is contested whether or not the term was actually used at what is deemed the dawn of the genre. It's an undeniable fact that the Acid Folk scene gained some popularity by the efforts of artists in "The Folk Revivalism", but it's important to remember that there were two distinctly different approaches taken by those who helped shape the genre in the mid 1960's. Some folk singers approached a psychedelic rock structure as was popular at that time, while some psychedelic rock outfits tried to absorb and incorporate techniques and elements from folk rock. Both have great importance in the development of Acid Folk, and this may be the reason that strict definitions of the genre cannot be given. In view of the history, it's no exaggeration to claim that TYRANNOSAURUS REX, SYD BARRETT or THE INCREDIBLE STRING BAND in UK rock scene seasoned the "traditional" Acid Folk with a more progressive spice. They, as eccentric or heretical rock outfits, accepted and incorporated Middle-Eastern and Oriental elements or instruments, and the result was the foundation for the current progressive Acid Folk movement. And in the Eastern parts of the world, different acid streams was provided by artists such as TAJ MAHAL TRAVELLERS or MAGICAL POWER MAKO who exerted a great influence on younger progressive bands. Their amazing achievements resides in the twilight zone between the Prog Folk and Psychedelic Prog subgenres.


A path that never ends

In addition of the styles described, psychedelic elements can be found in many other genres of progressive rock. The psychedelic cultural explosion had an immense influence on the western popular culture, and traces of it can still be heard also outside of progressive rock circles. The collective techno rave parties carry on the legacy of the audiovisual attack from the PINK FLOYD concerts in 1968, to cite one example. As the psychedelic movement was a large cultural phenomenon, it is difficult (and maybe unnecessary) to fence it to a clear category. Psychedelic progressive rock has been developing towards several different directions over time, and the task of classifying them as distinct genres and sub-genres is an ever ongoing process, often loaded with strong opinions. The psychedelic rock artists which are not considered as progressive in style are not listed in the databse of www.Progarchives.com. This in order to maintain the site's scope to be a progressive rock reference.

The aim of this description is to be a tool of reference for potential and existing fans of the genre, and we hope that this will aid those who read it to a better understanding of the genre as well as to enjoy and discuss the subject at hand both in the forums of the Progarchives website as well as in other places online and offline both.

Review by Mellotron Storm
Prog Reviewer

4 stars EDENA GARDENS are a trio out of Denmark with Nicklas Sorensen from PAPIR playing lead guitar and adding effects, Jakob Skott from CAUSA SUI on drums, keys and electronics and Martin Rude on guitar and bass. These three guys have been in multiple bands in fact Jakob and Martin have been in several together. This recording was engineered and mastered by Jonas Monk from CAUSA SUI. This is very much a relaxing, psychedelic recording and all instrumental.

Music to chill to you could say and this is one of those albums that just sounds really good. The warmth, the echo, spacey atmosphere, shimmering guitars, laid back drums for the most part all provide an uplifting sound. Other than the opener "Aether" really which is a slow moving piece that can be dark at times, the rest has the same vibe.

The closer is actually the song with the most light interestingly enough and maybe my favourite. It's called An T-Eilean Dubh" at 7 minutes in length. Clean picked guitar too which is unusual for this album. Active drums as well. Repetitive yes. Uplifting as well. Some of the songs become more passionate late but this is slow to mid-paced mostly with plenty of echo and space. "Now Here Nowhere" along with the closer are the two that standout for me but no weak tunes and uniform in sound. there's very little information in the liner notes(what notes?) but I do like the art work. It's great background music by the way.

Sob Os Olhos De Eva
Kaoll Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by alainPP

3 stars The music itself, the approach is disconcerting, the developments immediately bring to mind an almost banal electric folk jazz, then the developments of the 6 titles lead onto the highways that certain "prog" dinosaurs traced a long time ago. The big criticism of this EP is precisely its too short duration, the titles taking too long to make us catch up with the ramp of the said highway! The little extra of this EP is that it features unique, deceptive atmospheres, drawing here and there from sounds of country, hard rock, art-rock, psychedelic, BOF with purely jazzy and Brazilians. In fact, the accumulation of genres destabilizes the musical ear as you listen and almost forces you to activate the replay button!

For the tracks, we're dealing with space rock at the start, then typically Ry Coodrien slide guitar, all bathed in a country atmosphere while still retaining a jazz sound. The next piece sets the tone with a typically South American acoustic guitar, it's fruity, calm, then the flute comes in to bring us to a very catchy tune. The 3rd "Kopernik" starts slowly despite its short duration, juggling between a ballad, a Saturday night folk ball tune then the guitar coming into play brings a rapid but effective crescendo to an energetic swirling riff. Already the 2nd part of the album with a soft flute intro, followed by a rhythm guitar then the flute again and a calm, almost ethereal piano arpeggio then again this nervous guitar, drawing from the rock of CAMEL its inspirations; here, the composition revolves around the death of one of the most courageous men there was for having stood up to the CHURCH at a time when this was still impossible. The penultimate track "A Rua Contra Os Reis" starts directly with the flute as if there had been no break between the tracks with a sound of sirens and a nonchalant guitar la "Bonnie and Clyde" comes hold the melody for the shortest duration of the album (2'50''); we are between the sixties and the Original Film Soundtrack. Already the last track with "Dharma em Chamas" may be the most prog track with a melting pot of sounds initially coming from hard rock with a Hawkindian guitar and it calms down with an Inca tempo on the flute. We think it's going to end this way until the last two minutes where SF, spatial sound effects like those we could find on 80's metal groups (the intro, not the titles afterwards!) remind us that there is a lot of prog blood in this EP, as short as it is!

On Stage
The Spacelords Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Mellotron Storm
Prog Reviewer

5 stars I feel like this band has come a long way since their 2010 debut. They have actually become known for the incredible cover art they have used on their recordings since 2016's "Liquid Sun". My hunches don't always pay off but my thought process was that THE SPACELORDS might be even better live with an audience to feed off of. Five tracks worth just over an hour and this was released in 2019. All of the music from the previous release "Water Planet" is on here along with two of the three songs off of what was then a future album "Spaceflowers" released in 2020. Now if you have the vinyl version of this then you get the bonus of having "Black Hole" from "Liquid Sun" an earlier release.

Five stars seems high for a live recording but the sound quality is perfect and there is no weaknesses here as far as my tastes go. The guitar sounds amazing, the reverb, echo, effects. The drummer I just found out today is from ELECTRIC MOON and plays on "Stardust Realities" my favourite from them. Then the bass man just kills also adding effects. In the liner notes it says "This album was recorded at a private event called "Spaceparty". It took place in a garden that actually was more like a park. A really spaced out place. Extraordinary plants, art and lighting everywhere. The design of the stage was trippy. What a fantastic place to perform!"

The band certainly were inspired that evening as this album could not possibly be more consistent and great. The interesting thing for me is not knowing these songs previously as the few albums I own by this band are before "Water Planets" and all good but not that consistent like this one. I like that you can hear the crowd, usually after and before a song and briefly but it puts me in that mood. This is Krautrock man in the guise of Spacerock. Okay not really but I just feel this is a band who can be proud of what they have created over the years building a discography that sits nicely with some of the great German psychedelic bands of the past.

The album opens and closes with tracks from "Spaceflowers" and the three in between are from "Water Planets". So consistent! The drummer adds soundscapes to all the "Water Planet" tunes while the other two add effects throughout. Sounds like a lot of synths on here and at one point I swear I hear sitar which isn't credited. That would be early on track three. I really felt like this band deserved at least one album in my "best of" psychedelic list but until I heard this one I didn't think that was going to happen. This is a light show at times folks but also trippy and spacey with sounds that echo, some excellent contrasts. An incredible show!

Lotus Unfolding
Ozric Tentacles Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by alainPP

3 stars OZRIC TENTACLES founded in 1983, kraut, Steve VAI for guitar, TANGERINE DREAM, ethnic arab-techno, psychedelic ambient space rock fusion, experimental, instrumental ambient music that will drive fans of techno and house music, the height of it; they emerged during the Stonehenge Festival to indicate their musical signature, combining cosmic and nature; it's the WYNNE family who orchestrates. Known in 94, it's their 21st album of 2020 that brought me back to them, let's see what the 22nd is about.

"Storm in a Teacup" takes us directly to their space, on the border between jam and experimentation, with layered synths, a vibrant tune reminding me of RUSH just fleetingly; ah Ed's tortured guitar on the flights of TANGERINE DREAM, VAI, it goes on, the dynamite bass and the funky drums; a sound that is dated but still fresh and catchy; I compare it to the more recent QUANTUM FANTAY for this psychedelic enthusiasm; the stereo and fluid finale in which we have the impression of seeing the notes flowing. "Deep Blue Shade" more dub, bass, for a hypnotic journey variegated with blue, well that's in the title; a universe to listen to alone, at night, on headphones or loudly on Hi-Fi to blast your speakers, funky-jazzy at one point; Ed and Silas engage in a friendly musical battle. "Lotus Unfolding" shifts time and space; Saskia's flute offers a musical yoga eyeing the sounds of KITAJIMA, purity of the moment and of the sound; birds come to land before the monolithic synth sets the rhythm on a serene hypnotic waterfall variation looking over the Japanese world.

"Crumplepenny" arrives, much more complex, tinkered and chaotic with dark vibes; it vibrates out of tune, it moves like a doe in spring ready to eat berries to get drunk; the finale with Vangelisian synth choirs restores a little madness while an Andalusian and Yessian acoustic solo sows discord; the modern title which does not only provoke trance, here it is reflection. "Green Incantation" bass la 'Subway', flamenco guitar-sitar AL DI MEOLA, astral radiation to go even further; the synth gives the different instruments the opportunity to give their all, without being obliged to provide a deluge of sound; the colorful, dancing air, here it goes again on a programmed jig which flows like an effusion of land, astonishing; the piece to consume with a substance without a doubt, I who thought that we no longer needed it. "Burundi Spaceport" ends this journey, a hilarious title for a trance-meditative air if that can exist; calm, lively, organs, hypnotic, bouncy drums, a more complicated title which passes like a letter in the post, finally from the time when the post office ensured its traffic; I'm getting lost but this title risks... losing you by offering a unique tune that makes you think and meditate even more.

OZRIC TENTACLES returns in force with this creative, meditative, hypnotic album; mantra tunes, psychedelic to go far away, that's the goal; captivating sounds which gave the idea to ORESOUND SPACE COLLECTIVE, QUANTUM FANTAY, ASTRAL MAGIC to also explore this very particular musical mode; so it's progressive above all, danceable, jazzy but oh so entertaining to make your whole body vibrate; colorful multi-layered music which does not revolutionize the genre but extends the movement as if time could also go back; repetitive yes, shimmering and imaginative yes, what better way to wander in this musical maelstrom.

Downpour
Kanaan Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Mellotron Storm
Prog Reviewer

4 stars 4.5 stars. KANAAN are a young trio out of Norway who have been very active both live and in the studio since 2018. Seven studio albums since then plus a live one, "Downpour" is studio album number six from 2023. These guys sound like a mix of HAWKWIND, BUSHMAN'S REVENGE and HEDVIG MOLLESTAD TRIO but with heaps of fuzz and distortion added. And speaking of Hedvig Mollestad, she plays on that second track "Amazon" where we get the highlight of the album when her and Ask Vatn Strom KANAAN's exceptional guitarist battle it out. Fireworks galore.

These guys are players, the guitarist especially but that drummer reminds me of Hedvig's guy Ivar while the bass player adds a lot of spacey synths, noises and even harmonium but man his bass is fuzzed out. The opener "Black Time Fuzz" is well named, I mean the distortion is incredible both with the bass and guitar. Spacey synths too and they do mix it up. "Amazon" is a top three and Hedvig helps with that. Again fuzzed out and heavy music that here is catchy and mid- paced. This song flows so beautifully.

Another top three is the title track "Downpour". It's just not as heavy and is uplifting at times and also we get a light show from that guitar. Repeated themes too. Check out what seems like a climax before 6 minutes only to be followed by this onslaught. "Orbit" doesn't make my top three but it's right there. A nice heavy groove fuzzed out of course. But that early sound that is trippy and bass driven actually brought SOFT MACHINE to mind. Guitar is ripping it up after 5 minutes. "Solaris Pt.1" is my final top three. Gorgeous guitar leads in a spacey atmosphere. They do amp it up around 5 1/2 minutes but I just love the sound of this one before the heaviness and distortion hits. More of that heaviness on the closer "Solaris Pt.2".

I'm so into this record and I feel like if they ease off on the heaviness and distortion they will only get better. But that certainly appeals to the stoner rock fans out there.

Hawkwind Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Reynolds

1 stars This is another compilation of tracks from the 2007 Live at the London Astoria concert that appears on Knights OF Space, Knights IN Space, and Live at the London Astoria on the streaming services. It is not found on the Cherry Red website, and a search shows it is on the Black Barn Music label. It can be downloaded from an obscure website, so I assume it is a bootleg, although the sound quality is pretty good. How should this album be rated? The performance and sound is the same as on the other authorized releases, and ordinarily as a Hawkwind fan I would rate it 4 stars. I see that two others gave it one star and another two stars, But due to its questionable provenance, I would recommend avoiding it in favor of Knights in Space, so one star from me.

Collaborator PSIKE, JRF/Canterbury, P Metal, Eclectic

4 stars One of the many flash in the pan acts that existed in the freewheelin' late 1960s, ARCADIUM was a mere blip on the London scene but managed to drop this sole album BREATHE AWHILE in 1969 before disbanding a year later. The band was led by Miguel Sergides (12-string guitar, vocals) and was joined by John Albert Parker (drums), Graham Best (bass, vocals), Allen Ellwood (organ, vocals) and Robert Ellwood (lead guitars, vocals). The band frequented enough small clubs to catch the attention of the newbie Middle Earth label. The album was a complete commercial failure notable for its bad production and substandard vocals but nevertheless with the prog revival in the 21st century BREATHE AWHILE has become a cult hit after a much needed remastering job warranted a reevaluation of its merits.

Typical of the styles from the 1969-1970 odometer change, ARCADIUM's sole effort featured a sound that found that late 60s psychedelic rock sound slowly morphing into 70s progressive rock. This proto-prog album featured an ominous display of bombastic organ heft accompanied by heavy acid guitar, sharp vocal harmonies and moments of heavy psych freneticism sounding like a mix of The Doors, Vanilla Fudge, The Beatles and a host of other period acts but more anguished and nihilistic prognosticating the downer 70s hangover following the sunshine pop giddiness of the late 60s. The album is equally divided into lush acoustic guitar driven psychedelia, keyboard-drenched heavy psych and guitar-saturated hard rock complete with Yardbirds level soloing.

Bookmarked by the lengthiest compositions, BREATHE AWHILE begins with the near 12-minute "I'm On My Way" and closes with the 10-minute plus "Birth, Life and Death" which showcase the band's propensity to climb the progressive rock ladder and had they stuck around for a sophomore album surely would've become one of the more progressive bands of the early 70s. While the tracks in between the two biggies are shorter in length, they exude the same sense of doom and gloom and feature some of the heaviest guitar work on the album with more traditional sounding song structures. Despite being called a nightmarish concoction of late 60s atmosphere, BREATHE AWHILE is actually quite melodic and uplifting more in line with the psychedelic pop / rock bands of that came before as ARCADIUM was clearly more rooted in the past at this point than the future.

The main complaints i have encountered regarding this album revolve around the horrendous production job that graced the original vinyl that remained completely obscure until the modern era however i personally have never heard that one so i can only judge by my 2003 Akarma Records remastered CD which sounds perfectly acceptable without totally extinguishing that DIY garage rock effect. By far the weakest aspect of this album would certainly have to be the nonchalant laid back singing style of Miguel Sergides particularly in the high energy sections which did indeed require a bit more oomf in the vocal performances. Despite this though this album has come to grow on me after numerous encounters and ultimately has won me over with its strong songwriting and catchy ear worm hooks. The first two tracks are the strongest and initially much of the middle left me feeling unsatisfied but ultimately the album has worked its way in enough to understand why this album has become more regarded as a lost classic. The closer is another strong point that sort of recallibrates the strongest aspects. Not bad!

The Future Never Waits
Hawkwind Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Reynolds

4 stars As a longtime Hawkwind fan, I enjoyed this very much. It is more of a sophisticated chill out session than a rocker, and more in line with "It is the Business of the Future to Be Dangerous" (as Warthur also observes) and the Hawkwind Light Orchestra albums. Certainly quite spacey, beautifully recorded and played, with Dave Brock's jaunty perspective on things in his wise old age running through. If you want a good Hawkwind heavy duty space rock workout, their latest live album, "We Are Looking In On You" (2022) is the perfect complement. Also, I want to recommend the Hawklords albums from the last 11 years, which I hope Progarchives will someday admit to the sacred canon.

Prog Reviewer

4 stars Not as impactful as their debut but studio album number four is almost as good in my opinion. So yes I'd rate this as my second favourite from the band so far. Four long tracks worth 40 minutes on the nose. Still a five piece with four of them adding guitar and three of them adding keys besides bass and drums. The new math but no all but the drummer are multi-instrumentalists. And as I've said before drummer Sander Evers originally from the Dutch band 35007 is a huge asset.

Man that opener "Aquilo" sounds so good once they get cooking. Still the way it starts with those spacey and drifting synths is perfect for headphone fans. A slow build but when we get that steady beat with bass as the guitars play over top I'm smiling. The organ late adds to the power but then an almost symphonic vibe 11 minutes in, a feel good section to end it.The guitar lights it up here.

"Euros" has this repetitive beat with guitar and bass helping with that, quite catchy head-bobbing music. Guitar starts to solo over top at 3 1/2 minutes then the baritone guitar takes it's turn as contrasts continue. It starts to wind slowly down after 7 minutes to the end which is after 10 minutes.

"Auster" opens sounding like TANGERINE DREAM with the moog leading the way. Some distant guitar before a minute that gets louder then the organ starts to pulse as drums arrive. This is good. The guitar starts to solo. Some interesting guitar sounds. Clavinet? What! Maybe this is part of the programming. Great sound before 5 minutes, so much going on as it gets more intense. Organ is back before 7 minutes adding some power.

"Favonius" is spacey to start as synths lead the way then light beats join in and more. More depth around 3 minutes thankfully as it builds. By 6 1/2 minutes it's pretty heavy followed by a calm with spacey guitars and keys. Drums and that earlier lighter sound before 7 1/2 minutes as it sort of drifts along to the end. I liked this record right from the first spin and MONOMYTH are right near the top as far as favourite bands from The Netherlands go.

4 stars I'm such a big fan of this band. It's the way they create intricate melodic music that sounds very french, especially the vocals. Melodic and catchy but drifting into experimental territories is nothing new for this band out of France. I mention that because on this first live record by them they have gone deeper into the avant than ever before. Kind of surprising given this is live and you would think the catchy stuff would rule but it's the other way around. Some of these tracks are quite shorter than the originals but then we get the song "Travelling" from "A L'amitie" which is twice as long as the studio version.

That's my favourite studio album by this band and we get two tracks from it on here including the closer and four from "Laisse Ca Etre" the album they were touring for. Eight tracks from different venues and times, in fact the music covers an almost 2 year period. I like that they put this little insert in the packaging that is blank on one side and on the other we see the band performing on stage somewhere. I count eight musicians there and there's nine total with five blowing horns or flute.

The one track for me that seems out of place is "My Funny Valentine" originally a piano/vocal jazz ballad and of course changed a lot here but I'm just not into it at all. The rest is very good. It would be hard to limit this to a top three but the opener "Virange Sud" is outstanding and recognizable by that bass line that opens it. Some good contrasts and quite avant late. Love that relentless rhythm section. "C'est Pas Tout Mais" has to be a top three just for how unique sounding it is. Spoken words, humour, some singing and very french sounding.

"Travelling" I mentioned and it's my final top three. At nine minutes it is pretty much cut in half with two completely different sounding sections. The opening section is a repetitive rhythm section with different sounds coming and going over top making it interesting while the last half is an experimental soundscape with no structure really. Quite dark after 6 minute and I wonder what the crowd thought here. If you like avant check out the short 2 1/2 minute "Tintin On Est Bien Mon Loulou(Extrait)", mainly that final minute. The closer "Je Viens" is from my favourite album by them and is a worthy way to end this record.

Easily a four star record and very cool to see it make the top 20 for 2018 by the collaborators here, considering it's live and how strong that year was.
