SUSS: Ghost Box

Read "Ghost Box" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

The members of the band SUSS describe the music on their album Ghost Box as “psychedelic ambient country instrumentals." Fair enough, but ambient music fans will certainly recognize the sound from the country-influenced tracks on ambient pioneer Brian Eno's Apollo: Atmospheres and Soundtracks (E.G. Records, 1983)--featuring Daniel Lanois' pedal steel guitar playing--as well as Lanois albums ...

Billy Parker's Fourth World: Freedom Of Speech

Read "Freedom Of Speech" reviewed by Chris May

Drummer Billy Parker's 1975 album only tangentially connects to Fourth World music, the pancultural style which was given its name five years later by Jon Hassell on Fourth World Vol. 1: Possible Musics (Editions EG, 1980), the trumpeter's first collaboration with Brian Eno. Parker's Fourth World is the name of the band heard on Freedom Of ...

Rodrigo Tavares: Congo

Read "Congo" reviewed by Chris May

Guitarist Rodrigo Tavares cites his primary influences as bossa nova and tropicália pioneers João Gilberto, Dorival Caymmi, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Chico Buarque, Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil and Tom Zé. But you would not guess it from Congo, a collection of lyrical instrumentals which reference Brazil only in passing, and which consciously avoid any recognisable sense of ...

King Crimson: Live In Vienna, December 1st, 2016 (UK Edition)

Read "Live In Vienna, December 1st, 2016 (UK Edition)" reviewed by John Kelman

Another year, another live King Crimson set? True, perhaps. But since reforming in a slightly shifting but conceptually constant form in 2013 to begin touring in the fall of the following year, the band's forward-looking, ever-growing repertoire of new music and revisitation of old music (from across its nearly half century career) made new again has ...

Holger Czukay: Cinema

Read "Cinema" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Cinema is an irresistible five cd/dvd box set of music that enables the discovery of the creative mind of Holger Czukay (1938-2017). It may afford a re-discovery for a select few. Probably best known as a member of the famous Krautrock band CAN, which he co-founded in 1968, this collection surveys his post-CAN creations which were ...

Gleb Kolyadin: Gleb Kolyadin

Read "Gleb Kolyadin" reviewed by Geno Thackara

One sometimes doesn't know where to start in describing things under the progressive-rock umbrella, considering that the term comes with such a pile of baggage it's practically impossible to see around. The modern-day genre (to the extent that's even a recognizable thing) arguably has even more issues than the 1970s version: there are more bands out ...

Yazz Ahmed: La Saboteuse

Read "La Saboteuse" reviewed by Chris May

If Miles Davis was alive today and in the studio recording Bitches Brew, the results might, just might, resemble parts of London-based Yazz Ahmed's La Saboteuse. Other approximate reference points are, during the more reflective moments, Jon Hassell and Brian Eno's Dream Theory In Malaya: Fourth World Volume 2 and Davis's In A Silent Way. But ...
