A couple of suggestions about unusual bands..

2009-02-14 by

I’m not going to try to convince anyone to listen to the bands I’m talking about in this post, rather I’m pointing the index to those who are fond of extremely complex and obscure music: I heartly advice you to listen to these bands:

  • Koenji Hyakkei, a japanese band which wonderfully fuses avant-progressive rock with obsessive rhythms and japanese madness;

  • Present, a belgian “rock in opposition” band always on the thread between madness and genius;

  • Univers Zero, an ensemble which performs intriguing instrumental songs close to chamber music.

if you know what Zeuhl music is, well, then I’m probably late with this advice, otherwise give their records a spin..
