Group Four, Massive Attack (wayback Wednesday, apparently).

I am working my way through a series of podcasts from a radio show on XRAY-FM, a public radio station in Portland, Oregon. Called "The PM Show", it features progressive rock, jazz fusion and related styles. I discovered an East Coast band named Frogg Cafe, which began as a Frank Zappa tribute band. First-rate.

Still working my way through "The PM Show" podcasts. The most recent ones featured Jethro Tull's "Thick As A Brick" in its entirety. Classic 70's prog.

As for new bands, I'm also digging Thirteen Of Everything and their album "Welcome, Humans". I kid you not,  that's the title.

H. recommended two acoustic indie/folk artists yesterday. The late Jason Molina and Joanna Newsom. Check them out.

Indeed, two stellar artists.

Not sure if you know of Iron & Wine, but he is also fantastic (at least the older stuff is, kind of lost track now).
“I am a warrior of ages, Anasūrimbor . . . ages. I have dipped my nimil in a thousand hearts. I have ridden both against and for the No-God in the great wars that authored this wilderness. I have scaled the ramparts of great Golgotterath, watched the hearts of High Kings break for fury.” -Cet’ingira

Don't know about Iron & Wine, but I sure dig Sippin' Wine!

On a sombre note, Allan Holdsworth passed away last weekend at age 70. He was certainly one of the finest electric guitar soloists of his time. He was a master of modern harmonic theory, and his extended, fluid and discursive solos often remind me of those excellent tracking shots that only skilled film directors can accomplish. And his pellucid, warbly "singing" tone.....no words. As a youngster, Allan wanted to learn to play a wind instrument, because he was captivated by the expressive quality of saxophones and flutes.

Here's a link to a live performance from 1986. Allan was at the peak of his powers, the band is great, and the recording is good. RIP, Allan.

My general tastes? Classical/baroque periods, Stravinsky, Chopin. Almost no modern classical. Prog rock, jazz fusion, singer-songwriters (Dan Fogelberg, Joni Mitchell), folk, bluegrass, Miles Davis, Keith Jarrett. Animals As Leaders, the current incarnation of King Crimson, Rush (especially late-period, such as Clockwork Angels,  Counterparts), mid-70s Yes, mid-70s Genesis.
