Can anyone recommend anything similar to Colin Stetson's 'Presents Sorrow: A Re-imagining of Gorecki's third symphony'? Either jazz or classical would work for me, I really love the electric guitar-work on that record.

On a bare tree in a hollow place, A blinded form's unhaloed face, Sight, where Heaven is destroyed, The hanging visage of the void.

Recently discovered Pomplamoose - exceptionally glad that I did!

Earlier works are rather quirky and they had a 'video song' format (they're old-guard YouTubers) for a long time. More recently they've switched to collaboration and studio format with some really great original tracks and covers.

Highly recommended.

@Draco_V_Ecliptic No problem, I’m happy you took the time to listen. Glad you enjoyed it. I’m not very familiar with more recent work of Glass, I’m afraid but regarding contemporary jazz I have two recommendations:

STUFF

Belgian band that blends jazz, electronics and post-rock.

KOKOROKO

British jazz collective with afrobeat, latin influences.

Red Hot Chili Peppers' By The Way album, on a sunny Sunday morning.

That's all I came here to say really.

Good job, Parappa. You can go on to the next stage now.

Thanks man! , Very nice stuff!, I'll see your jazz recommendations and raise you a couple of my own -

Let me know what you think and if you want more that are similar.
Played any good games recently? We can talk about them in a different thread.

I've had 'Wichita Lineman' in my head all day. Could be worse.

@Draco_V_Ecliptic John Scofield is such a legend, there's always a funky side to his work! The Nels Cline 4 are awesome too, never heard of them. These guys sure can jam...

@Kidfried Their live shows are off the chain!

Boards of Canada are probably my favourite music artists, if you like great music you should give the below a listen. It’s an old Peel session recording which they’ve rereleased today, it’s been a long time since I have heard it. The beginning always reminded me of Ecco the Dolphin too

@andreoni79 great, i’ve heard bits and pieces of b12 but never given them a full listen - i’ll play that album today. So much absolute gold signed to Warp!

@andreoni79 good shout by the way I’ve added to my regular rotation

Apparently there was a third member of BoC originally, by the name “Christ.” - if you’re not aware it’s worth checking out, he doesn’t seem to have a lot of music released and nothing on Spotify but you can find a bit on YouTube.

Enjoying the Apollo era radio beep samples in this one!

@kyleforrester87 @andreoni79 The video for Apex Twin's Windowlicker always used to freak me out! Mind you I tended to see at stupid o'clock after a night out so I had a few jars in me!

We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.

@JohnnyShoulder yeah that’s a bit of a classic, I actually listened to that song for the first time in ages a few days ago, it’s not that great I don’t think but the video is excellent. I’m not a huge fan of Aphex Twin really, I do love both of his Selected Ambient Works albums though.

@kyleforrester87 Come to think of it was the video for Come to Daddy which used to freak me out, but Windowlicker was more well known. His stuff always came across as to experimental to me back then. Not sure if he has done any, but it think he would make a good soundtrack!

@JohnnyShoulder ah sorry I’m being dumb, I was talking about Come to Daddy the whole time - dunno why I thought you meant that when you said Windowlicker. Just you mentioned the video and the CTD one is, I think, the video at least most people are more familiar with. Either way, it is a great vid!
