this is almost exactly what I imagined Omar Souleyman's music sounding like

Just listening to that Duke album now, blimey. This rules.

My BF pointed out that I had actually already heard some of it as he'd put a couple of tracks on a mix he'd made. Pfffft my brain keeps nothing in. Still rules though.

Maybe a bit too old-fashioned to be herky jerky but I still dug this. Real motherfucking 70s prog hours!

file under: Zappa minus Zappa

btw I just realized the Duke album is basically that one bonkers section of "Peking O" extended to 40 minutes

frogbs, Thursday, 8 August 2019 21:01 (six months ago) link

there are some really inspired moments on the delorians record. zappa minus zappa is accurate lol, cause one of the first things i thought of was jean-luc ponty.

Kings Kaleidoscope are bringing the Lord's herky-jerky in 2019! It's about time the Christian rock scene went indieprog tbh

I had high hopes for 100 gecs after reading that but, it's boring? idk

Maresn3st, Sunday, 22 September 2019 17:04 (four months ago) link

I agree! But I am open to being convinced

My son loves them, wants me to take him to their upcoming show. I think they are fun and silly, if not exactly mindblowing.

Mario Meatwagon (Moodles), Sunday, 22 September 2019 18:38 (four months ago) link

I love them but can see why others might not

imago, Sunday, 22 September 2019 21:46 (four months ago) link

Sorry for continuing to pollute this thread, imago. I have no idea where this goes; I'm not at all confident that it's blackgaze enough for rolling metal, but it's a absolutely nowhere near herky-jerky either, as I understand it. I'm posting it here bcz I think you might like it as it's kind of like Sigur Ros goes Bonkers in Phoenix

(Lol and as it happens there's already a FPA thread :/ )

(This Kings Kaleidoscope album isn't bad at all, either)

FPA are definitely mining some sort of lo-fi MBV thing! Will investigate further...ty

Do it! It'll be worth your while

Charlie Cawood's second solo album sounding great so far - classical chamber pop, basically, but with a certain melodic sensibility I have been known to enjoy

https://charliecawood.bandcamp.com/album/blurring-into-motion

imago, Monday, 25 November 2019 13:03 (two months ago) link

I like that! Smooth sailings.

The Garden's album last year was one of my most-listened, and this new single is nice too, with a bit of herk and jerk though also tuneful:

Hey imago do you know about Collider yet

PLEB AF (Drugs A. Money), Thursday, 2 January 2020 09:07 (one month ago) link

I feel like they might be the Medicine-Game Theory amalgam of my dreams

PLEB AF (Drugs A. Money), Thursday, 2 January 2020 09:15 (one month ago) link

obviously was humming some Loud Family to myself as I opened this thread haha

will have to give them a go

imago, Thursday, 2 January 2020 10:13 (one month ago) link

Meh don't hold me to that, I was stoned when I posted that, I hear some of Miller in the melodies and vocals, but really musically it's a lot busier and more herky-jerky in the intended sense than anything I've heard on a Game Theory record

I can't speak with any authority about them, but maybe the Cardiacs are a more appropriate reference point? Like maybe 'Cardiacs-meet-Medicine'? I wish ultros was still here...

PLEB AF (Drugs A. Money), Friday, 3 January 2020 04:11 (one month ago) link

I listened to it! Wouldn't say Cardiacs at all, maybe a bit of Game Theory. Reminded me most of Swirlies, really. Plenty of promise!

imago, Friday, 3 January 2020 11:37 (one month ago) link

I hear traces of Monsoon Bassoon too.

Maresn3st, Friday, 3 January 2020 22:29 (one month ago) link

oh that's not a bad shout yeah

imago, Friday, 3 January 2020 22:35 (one month ago) link

Swirlies/Medicine (esp the later albums)/Monsoon Bassoon/Marnie Stern and probably some Japanese producer's covert math/shoegaze-tronic band fronted by a dozen moody schoolgirls who are all named after different styles of hat.

Maresn3st, Friday, 3 January 2020 22:46 (one month ago) link

Where is Ultros?

Maresn3st, Friday, 3 January 2020 22:46 (one month ago) link

Talking fo Japan, did I ever blab on to you about Croissant Chicago?

You did not! Thank you - will dive in shortly...
