Let's have a /prog/ thread and see how it goes.

Everything slightly related to Prog counts. So feel free to post Avant-Prog, Math Rock, "Experimental/Art" Rock, even Jazz, Fok and Metal!

What have you been listening to recenty?
Favorite prog rock albums?

Post Youtube/DL links so that we can discover new bands easily.

And remember guys, Prog Rock is not dead!

Jazz has been my favorite genre of music to perform and listen to for years. A friend of mine thought that I'd really like Soft Machine upon listening to them. So, I listened to pic related, and this is what I got: a band that can establish a groove, but sometimes has difficulties transitioning from one major idea to another. Additionally, I don't think these guys are the technical wizards that my friend said they were, but I was impressed by a lot of the drummer's playing.

You might like Henry Cow's first album then. Similar sound, but with less vocals and even better drumming (imo).

Here's a post from the archive
"The Henry Cow Legend.

Already listened to the full album like 7 times, and songs like Nirvana for Mice and Teenbeat like 12 in less than two weeks. That album is just so comfy I want to listen to it all the time.
It also predicted "Post-Rock" 20 years before Post-Rock was even a thing.
For fans of Soft Machine, Zappa's Uncle Meat and comfy Jazz-Rock.
Here is a sample

Make a Rising then. They have slightliy GG influences, together with Yes, and Modern Classical.
Check this

Those drums a little bit past the minute mark are pretty rad.

It's not considered prog, but have you listened to any of the pieces by Brian Ferneyhough? I got into him a few weeks ago, and a lot of his pieces just feel so demanding from the performer, and I really liked them.

>>48863559
>Yes makes some of the most beautiful melodies I have heard.
They have some frustratingly catchy hooks. What I really like about them though is the sheer fluidity of their playing. I like to think of them as the English version of Can, not stylistically or ideologically but in terms of their band mechanic.

I honestly think Scaruffi does a really good job of describing Yes's music.
>If the fusion [of genres] was not unique, the glacial composure certainly was: Yes albums sounded more like scientific experiments than party music. The Yes Album (1971) introduced their schizophrenia: Yours Is No Disgrace and Starship Trooper went for strenuous instrumental bravura, while I've Seen All Good People revolved around a catchy refrain. The virtuoso performers (particularly drummer Bill Bruford and keyboardist Rick Wakeman) achieved a sublime degree of balance on Fragile (1971), whose Roundabout, South Side Of The Sky and Heart Of The Sunrise flowed like clockwork mechanisms. The apex of the Yes' apparent contradiction (a style that was both frigid and romantic) was reached on Close To The Edge (1972), whose Close To The Edge and And I And You were lengthy, complex and densely chromatic fantasias, and the very definition of "art-rock".
>>
>>48863760
His pieces seem to be all about the composer's control over the performers. Like, the rhythms and accents aren't really left open to any interpretation.

Yeah, something that I really like about some of their songs is how they sound like a clockwork, but very freely, like water sometimes, at the same time.

>>48863906
No. Check those
Pak, Grumpf Quartet, Make a Rising, Koenjihyakkei, Blast, Mars Volta, Rich Woodson's Ellipsis, Alamaailman Vasarat, and Harpy.
All from this millenium, very varied and original, and of good quality.

It has to do with the vocals, and how Anderson's not really a "lead" vocalist, but a singer who contributes their voice to the overall music, like Mooney or Suzuki.
>>
>>48863984
Not GJ, but I just wanted to interject and say they've had some of the best drummers I've ever witnessed or heard of. Omars mixture of frivolity and dictation with his songwriting gives it an endearing uniqueness, even if clumsy and wanky at times. Cedric comes up with the most bizarre and drugged out lyrics that mean nothing only half the time, but are genius the other half. I feel like he's pretty honest about it and has a good sense of humor, while his melodies are on point literally 99.9% of the time.

I'm not sure how the composer intended his piece to be enjoyed. I like Ferneyhough's usage of rhythm though. He's capable of being sparse at times and extremely busy at others, but despite these shifts it feels like he's mastered flow, at least for his arrangements.

Thank you for your recs, man. I've enjoyed them.
>>
>>48864346
Well, it has been keeping me interested for more than 20 minutes, and I'm already downloading it.
Maybe that Quartet has some hidden trasures that reveal over time. Who knows?
And yes, the rhythms and dynamics are great. It reminds me to this too, but it's less chaotic. Also, best crescendo ever at the end.

I just finished listening to this. The longer, jammier tracks like "God Took a Picture...", "Escaped and Lost..." and "Ganagmanag" were really great, but the other more straightforward pop tracks were pretty boring and a little grating.

Do they have anything more in the vein of those three long tracks, or should I be listening to a different band?

Was going to post in the Bandcamp thread, but this seems more relevant.

One of my bands is releasing a prog rock album very soon (today or tomorrow). There's some noodley jazz, ambient, noise rock and doomy riffs.

Come on guys, step it up. Pawn Hearts is easily a top 10 Progressive Rock album, and the rest of their catalog is consistently excellent as well.

Camel are great too. Not legendary or anything, but Mirage is a strong release.

No ELP either, as usual. Never seems to be any love for them.

hi mister math god,

a week ago you recommended me to listen to Make a Rising based on what i posted in a chart thread

Attention /mu/!!!


I once saw an album at a thrift shop that had an overall light blue colour with objects painted in it, one of which is a pack of cigarettes.

Definitely. You should at least get chills when listening to the Boatride song.

That album was their Best, and is probably going to be unmatched.

Be more specific if you can.

>>48867347
I can't really remember more of it and i'm afraid to be specific because i might give the wrong impression. it may has wel been a giant wave on the cover, with a pack of marlboro's on it

who /progarchives/ here?

This can be very subjective, but for me it's Rock with "more elements". For example, different time signatures, instruments, multiple sections, complex chord progressions, or anything like that.

Yes the boredoms album, it's not prog rock, but it's pretty progressive. I have a huge bias towards it though, as it was the album that got me into experimental and avant garde music.

No, it lacks the things that make Yes truly remarkable IMO (namely Wakeman's arrangement of the material). The eponymous track is one of my faves though.

Nah, your list is okay. Be sure to check the ones I mentioned too though. Those are also gems.
Also, Szobel is fucking great!
>>
>>48872595
It definetly shows off what the band was in their formative years, before their next album "The Yes Album" made them huge and popular. BUT I still think it is an amazing album, and I'm always sad that it is frequently over-looked. I think it has a more scifi, more psychedelic sound than most of their albums. That's what appeals to me the most I guess.

Symphonic classic-style prog with loads of instrumentals. He was the Genesis guitarist so of course he has a bit of a Genesis sound, but on Voyage of the Acolyte at least he sounds more like early King Crimson with the harder sound.

That album is good, but very difficult. So, if you don't get it at first (which you most likely won't), listen to it another day again.

Please people I am dying, I can't find a (free) download link for the Moon Safari (Blomljud) recommended before. I listened to it in bandcamp and was great.

If you paid attention to what else was in that sheet, you'd find that I can handle that sorta thing no problem.

I did see some difficult stuff from your list, but this is even more difficult. It's by far, together with another album, the most difficult and challenging albums I have ever heard.
That one makes Trout Mask Replica sound like Early Beatles.

Any proggy punk-rock in the vein of Pere Ubu and This Heat? Or for that matter, any punky prog-rock?

Honestly, I have no idea. I don't listen a lot of that stuff, but it just sounds like it.

he doesn't use that specific horn sound much in his other material, but the sort of somber mood can be found scattered throughout, like near the end of Megaritual ("Dispanec Triage"), in Solar Gambling ("Los Tentáculos De La Libélula"), in Se Dice Bisonte No Bufalo ("Thermometer Drinking the Bussness of Turnstiles", "Lurking About In A Cold Sweat (Held Together by Venom)"), on Calibration ("Cortar El Cuello"). It might not be exactly what you're looking for, but i REALLY suggest you give these a shot, they're great moments in these albums (which are themselves great journeys if you ask me)

Animals as Leaders, IQ, Mastodon, Sleep Party People, Haken, Leprous, Birds and Buildings, Nemrud, The Psychedelic Ensemble, Riverside, Scale the Summit, Steven Wilson and United Bible Studies have all created great albums this year and last.
Anathema, Astra, Echolyn, The Flower Kings, Kayo Dot, Marillion, Motorpsycho, and The National Orchestra of the United Kingdom of Goats have made great albums in 2012.
Not to mention the debut albums made from Perfect Beings, Pervy Perkin, Telepathy and Pomegranate Tiger in 2013/14.
I hope this list gives you some awesome new prog to listen to
