This is a band I've just come across that some people might like. Perhaps they're as much Prog as they are Avant-Garde Lite, but I thought I'd put them here anyway:-



And if you want to learn more about Daniel O'Sullivan, the man behind Miasma and The Carousel of Headless Horses:- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daniel...eadless_Horses

And here's another band, with a foot in several genres, that I'm planning to explore more fully soon:-

^ Haha! I liked that Auktyon clip a lot more than the previous one you posted, but there's no need to hold back on the Avant-Prog - a few examples would help me clarify what that sub-genre sounds like.

I am finally replying; last week my computer decided to shut down right after I'd spent an hour minutes musing about all of the selections in this thread.

I really quite like that last Auktyon song posted. The beginning half, at least.

Miasma & The Carousel of Headless Horses: I adore it! Like a grand waltz in the bowels of hell.
Third Ear Band: Beautiful!
A Hawk and a Hacksaw: A long time favorite. I am always in dire need of more accordions in my daily life!

I can't NOT mention Jun Miyake, who is a truly enchanting composer, likely a wizard and a gift to the world.






I can also recommend Contemporary Noise Quintet, though I haven't listened much beyond this one album:


(Apologies for that somewhat uninspired list; I'm having a bit of a caffeine crash at the moment.)

Since it's a lazy, slightly hungover sunday, I'll just post some songs without comments.

Spoiler for whole lotta avantprog:




















It's one of my main genres so I could go on and on, but let's leave it at that for now.

^ Haha! That's a great description of Miasma and the CHH!
I'll give a listen to your latest recommendations a little later, Chiomara. Thanks.

^ I remember a few of those, grindy; a feeling of satisfaction because you had a good time the previous evening, and a feeling of guilt because you should be studying....

Many thanks for all the different bands, which I'll be exploring in due course.

I thought I'd bump this thread and bring it full circle because I've just been listening to North Sea Radio Orchestra's album, I a moon. Nothing raucous or disonant here, I'm afraid; they remind me most of Penguin Cafe Orchestra. They are a little too careful in their approach to be considered avant-garde by today's standards, I guess, but, rather like their album cover, an apparent simplicity conveys something quite subtle:-

This is very light if avant-garde at all:



https://ymusicensemble.bandcamp.com/...ful-mechanical


yMusic, Beautiful Mechanical


but it sounds pretty good - didn’t hit a match on search

thought it kind of fit in here
