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

Shed a tear for the hardcore prog collector — actually, don’t. This week has been absolutely crammed with articulate announcements looking to part fans from their hard-earned cash or pull them deeper into debt. And no, I’m not talking about the upcoming Derek Smalls solo album. Check out what’s coming our way as winter (hopefully) […]

Thanks to Rick for posting this. What a good year this is going to be for prog-heads!

[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.

[Music] Vyacheslav Potapov (VP) – Water World

Prog is alive and well in… Kazakhstan?! Yes! Thanks to incredible labels highlighting talent worldwide like Cuneiform and MoonJune Records, we’re finding out about avant-progressive music from places like Indonesia, Belarus, and other faraway locales. VP is based in Kazakhstan’s former capital city, Almaty, and his music reminds me of such groups like Univers Zero, Art Zoyd, and modern bands like Rational Diet from Belarus. We need to hear much more from them.
