Hi, Rowan, and welcome to MB! Actually, you should be able to post YouTube links. Just put them in the format of:-

youtube in square brackets, plus code number after the equals sign, plus /youtube in square brackets

In your case you need to use: fRsFPhEeNlI, then you would get:-



^ A very interesting addition to the thread, thanks! I like the conversational way that the vocals begin, though after that, I´m happier with Iva´s violin than with her vocals, tbh!

...and another set of interesting tracks from grindy - thanks. I really liked the Hamster Theater and the first track by Bar Kokhba. I´ll definitely be looking at more of his stuff, and perhaps the rather daunting John Zorn too.

In the meantime, the Bar Kokbha track reminded me of Dead Combo, from Portugal :-

Marc Ribot, the guitarist from Bar Kokhba, actually plays on that track, as well as on several other tracks from that album.

There was a video here
Oh thanks ^^'

Nooo! Iva's scatting is wonderful! Well, I didn't find Eviyan 'till I'd already memorized most of her solo discography, so I might be a bit biased. And no, I don't speak Czech.

Well, that´s a complete surprise to me! I always imagined Dead Combo as working alone in some quiet musical backwater. I didn´t know they were mixing it up with international celeb guitarists.
(Unless I´m more confused than usual, Frownland is quite an admirer of Marc Ribot too.)

They have a track titled "Ribot" on their first album.
I guess it was something along the lines of a dream collaboration with an old hero later on.

^ Ah! That´s a detail I lost when I downloaded Dead Combo Vol.1, without the permission of Dead Combo.

Right now I´m exploring Alec K Redfearn´s music. His style really suits me; interesting but not too demanding. Will be moving on to your other recommendations son, incl. Amoebic Ensemble, who I see are also A K R and friends.

Bumping this to tell the world, or at least grindy, that I underestimated A Hawk and a Hacksaw a few posts back. More traditional than avant-garde, they have several albums of gypsy music to their credit. Here they are (far left accordion and far right violin) with their sound being beefed up by some other musicians:-



A French lady who has impressed me recently is Emmanuelle Parrenin. In 1977 she made an exquisite album of French folk music called Maison Rose , then waited about 30 years before making a comeback with material that earns her a place in this thread:-

That's some cool stuff.
Really like the instruments in the Hawk & Hacksaw vid.
Although I do wish the music had some nice dissonant parts.
Also put Madame Parrenin on my list of albums to check out.

This might be too electric for this thread, but I'm having another phase of Auktyon worship those last few weeks and am eager to share.

^ Thanks for the response, grindy. Auktyon are new to me, but that performance has all kind of good things going on, especially when the vocals liven up about 4 mins in. I also liked the clarinet (?) that concludes the song, so they are a band that are going on my list for checking out too.

( I wouldn't worry about them being too electrical; given the number of contributions to this thread, you could post something by Britney Spears if you wanted to.)

I can't believe that yesterday was the very first time that I heard anything by Third Ear Band. Their first album, Alchemy, came out in 1969, so they are real pioneers in several different areas. It's as if Soft Machine met GodSpeedYouBlackEmperor while on holiday in India and they decided to jam together with the locals. Anyway, this clip runs for 15 mins, so you can work out their sound for yourselves:-



^ Although the two tracks here aren't named, in length if nothing else they are typical of the album I'm starting out with: an officially self-titled album that fans have labelled Elements because there are just 4 tracks, each devoted to one of the 4 elements. Fabulous stuff, imo.
