Prog Rock Deep Cuts #33 by Progrockdeepcuts on Mixcloud
A note from your ‘humble’ host / narrator, I think this particular show was a high achievement for me both as a presenter and in terms of playlist. I felt like I was really on top of my game when delivering some of the improvised banter, and the playlist is *very* eclectic.
I’ve got some classical stuff, some jazz, folk, avant, electronic, funk, and metal. I’ve got American, Italian, Swedish, Finnish, British, German, and even Swiss prog here. I’ve got music from way back to the early 70′s with groups like Gentle Giant and VdGG as well groups from just about every major era and subgenre of prog, from the accessible and catchy, to the off-the-wall and just plain STRANGE. It’s sometimes cerebral, sometimes from the heart, and sometimes it’s just plain goofy and FUN. Above all, it’s progressive and definitely not for the faint of heart.
In short, if you don’t know Deep Cuts and want to find out what it’s all about, CLICK HERE!
Prog Rock Deep Cuts #32 by Progrockdeepcuts on Mixcloud
Hello everyone! On this week’s Deep Cuts I’ve got a mixture of new and classic, obscure and well-known!
First off, I’ll be featuring new music from Ian Anderson. The new release, Homo Erraticus (The Wandering Man) is a concept album following the sagas of a man struck by malaria-induced delirium who dreams of his past lives. Beginning with his origins as a nomadic Neolithic settler, we trace his development as an Iron Age blacksmith, a Christian monk, and even glimpse forward into his future.
Additionally, I’ll also be playing a bit from the new record by The Knells, a Brooklyn-based chamber-psych band, as well as cuts from Zeuhl-ites Happy Family from Japan, a band who draw from mid 70′s Magma, Crimson, and Zappa. Not to be missed!
All this and more, only on Deep Cuts 32!
Prog Rock Deep Cuts #31 by Progrockdeepcuts on Mixcloud
After a week off, Deep Cuts is back! And I’ve got a lot of great stuff planned for you this week …
First off, I’ll be featuring new music from Mattias Olsson (ex-Anglagard) and David Lundberg’s (Gosta Berlings Saga) Necromonkey project, entitled A Glimpse of Possible Endings. The album is a masterpiece of modern electronic music, drawing on minimalism and analogue elements to create a fresh take on the progressive rock genre.
Also, we will be featuring classic live King Crimson and recent music from Rock in Opposition band Panzerpappa and their Astronamalist. The album features compositions of stunning depth and engaging melodies, making for an album that works on multiple levels.
All this and more on Deep Cuts 31!
