[Music] El Arca de Valjós – La Pálida Alma Humana

I love Mexican progressive rock, especially when it’s avant-progressive. Many great bands came down the beltway from Mexico, especially from the capital. El Arca de Valjós seems to be keeping the avant-prog tradition alive, and it’s wonderful to hear.

[Music] Five-Storey Ensemble – Not That City

Not a lot of bands are coming out of Belarus at the moment, but Five-Storey Ensemble are about the best working out of Minsk today. They are the standard bearers for the modern Rock-In-Opposition movement.

[Music] Rick’s Reissue Roundup: Attack of the Spring Box Sets!

Shed a tear for the hardcore prog collector — actually, don’t.

[Music] Falling Into Birds – Falling Into Birds

Falling Into Birds is an avant-progressive/Rock-In-Opposition band led by guitarist Joey Bishop. They bring together such influences as Univers Zero, Art Zoyd, touches of the freakier moments of King Crimson, and maybe a dash of the Belgian Aksak Maboul. Truly one of the most remarkable releases of 2017!

[Music] Corima – Quetzalcoatl (Complete)

Los Angeles, California’s answer to Magma, Corima originally hail from Texas, and make use of the Mexican Quetzalcoatl mythos and make intense music in the vein of Zeuhl music; quick, crisp, brutal and quite a pleasure to delve into.

Check out their Bandcamp page here.

[Music] Guy Segers – Apex

Guy Segers was a member of the Belgian Rock-In-Opposition outfit Univers Zero, as well as their predecessor, Necronomicon. If you check out his CV, you’ll see he’s worked with some of the greatest musicians in all of progressive rock and its offshoots.

Check out his Bandcamp site. He still releases music frequently, and offers title individually, rather than by album.
