Review roundup - this month's best new progressive music releases
Grant Moon rounds up the latest progressive music releases from Tilted Axes, Tim Muddiman And The Strange, Cairo, Savoy Motel and Mild High Club
With roots in the classical and theatre world, guitarist Patrick Grant collaborated with Robert Fripp in his Orchestra Of Crafty Guitarists, and his own Tilted Axes project is cut from similar avant-garde cloth. Grant’s just one of around a dozen axe men on Music For Mobile Electric Guitars (Peppergreen Media), which contains several quasi-Crimson moments (squally, hypnotic opener Shapes 1, the surging, subtly oddly-metered Techno Tilt). The approach is post-modern and smacks of experimental theatre, but the music’s excellent and only arty in the most complimentary sense. Would love to see these guys live.
