[2008] Mothlite - The Flax of Reverie

Daniel O'Sullivan (Guapo, Ulver, live member of Sunn O)))) is the frontman of this prog/neofolk project, which borrows a bit from each one of the projects he has been involved with (specially Miasma & The Carousel of Headless Horses) and mixing it with post-rock (with a hint of Talk Talk), giving the music a unique style overlal. O'Sullivan's soft vocals that remind of Toby Driver's give the album an ethereal vibe, constantly layering and reverberating on every song.
So far the only LP (released 3 years ago), which should be followed by Dark Age this year, in which Krystoffer Rygg (Ulver, Æthenor) contributes vocals.

[2010] Tangerine Dream - Zeitgeist Concert

The most prolific, well known German progressive electronic/ambient band Tangerine Dream comes back with yet another live album, from last year's performance in the Royal Albert Hall in London. 3 discs, in which they revise some of their acclaimed works in albums like Phaedra and Stratosfear, along with some more recent material. It all makes up for a great listening experience.

[1993] Vibraslaps - Vibraslaps

Ikue Mori, one of the most prominent Tzadik solo artists of the last decade and also with a reasonable number of collaborations, released a free improv collab along with Catherine Jauniaux (avantgarde singer, member of Aksak Maboul) back in 1993 under the name of Vibraslaps. This was back in the era when Mori focused mostly on drum machines, and Jauniaux had already established herself with Aksak Maboul and her solo work with the aid of Fred Frith, Fluvial. The result is somewhat similar to the latter, going a step further into the insanity by using completely improvised vocals, and there doesn't seem to exist a limit for how quirky and out there they could get. All in all a great release for the fans of their career (both Ikue Mori and Catherine Jeauniaux), and avant-prog in general.
