New stuff that will probably rock

I’m excited about all of these upcoming releases for the remainder of 2009:

  • Anti-Pop Consortium - Fluorescent Black (heard it last night and I already know it rocks)
  • Baroness - Blue Record
  • Between the Buried and Me - The Great Misdirect
  • The Dillinger Escape Plan - Option Paralysis (probably early 2010)
  • Do Make Say Think - Other Truths
  • Epica - Design Your Universe (I am a total sucker for this band)
  • Espers - III
  • Evangelista - Prince of Truth
  • Gaza - He Is Never Coming Back
  • Krallice - Dimensional Bleedthrough
  • Magma - Emehntet-Re (is this really coming out in November??)
  • Present - Barbaro (isn’t this supposed to be out already? can’t find it anywhere)
  • Sajjanu - Pechiku!!
  • Univers Zero - Clivages (technically January 2010)
  • Wrnlrd - Myrmidon

Obviously, I have very little idea about what’s going on in the prog world these days. Any other avant-prog releases I should be paying attention to? (Please don’t tell me about the new Transatlantic album, I care even less than I did five years ago.)

    I just picked up David Sylvian’s latest, “Manafon” and if you enjoyed “Blemish,” this expands upon that album’s minimalism and takes it to new levels. Christian Fennesz makes a real impact on this one. By the way, the Marc Ducret album is taking some time to digest, but that first track is just flat out incredible.

    Which Ducret album?

  3. Brandon Wu Says:

    The Ducret album referred to is his recent big-band release, Le Sens de la Marche, which I posted about here. I agree, it’s not exactly immediately accessible, but it’s obvious from the first listen that it’s going to be rewarding and ultimately pretty awesome.

    Thanks for the Sylvian tip!
