    Still a bit more than one month to go, so let's play a game to find some new music. Name a band and a record that obeys the following rules:

    • The band is fresh, let's say their debut is not more than three years old
    • The music is not related in any direct way to Motorpsycho (they deserve their own thread)
    • Mention only one band/record at a time
    • The record should be awesome...

    Psychonaut - Unfold The God Man

    My top album of 2018. Belgian progressive/stoner/sludge band. This is their debut from 3 months ago. Mindblowing stuff.
    No idea if their band name has anything to do with MP...

    @nicoot, ah cool, the guys from Psychonaut are friends of me There band name has nothing to do with MP. There first EP's were also great.

    I love Zeal & Ardor too! Very original. I recomend EERA - Reflection of youth. Quite Radioheady. I also love King Gizzard and the Lizard wizards five records from 2017.

    Nice! I'll listen to every recommendation here. Of course I already started with Amgala Temple, which has been mentioned before, and which I really, really like so far.

    My favorite record from 2018 is Lush from Snail Mail. Female Singer/Songwriter, very catchy and dreamy stuff.

    I gotta say I haven't heard many new records in the past years, and then mostly from bands I already knew before. I hope to change this with listening to the records mentioned here.

    And now something completely different: Kamasi Washington - The Epic
    If you can stand any jazz music, go and buy the outstanding vinylbox, clocking in about 3 hours something. A masterpiece

    @Kid A
    I also have that one, and it is absolutely brilliant. Really cool, how they bring back the coolness to jazz. You know, somehow managing to avoid that often tedious approach of fusion jazz and still make it accessible for listeners who didn't care so much for jazz so far. I didn't listen to the new album, though.
    I would like to mention the Soundtrack to "L.A.Noire", which struck me in a similar way. It is really amazing lounge jazz/orchestral work....absolutely on a par with with famous movie soundtracks, but probybly for the reason of it being "videogame" music it apparently remained unrecognized. If there was a vinyl version, I'd definitely buy it.

    Saw Kungens Män three years ago at Mani Neumeier's Finkenbach Festival near Heidelberg.
    Made me dance in the mud at 2 am even though I was totally exhausted. Great Band!

    Not so sure about Kamasi Washington though. Liked the first album quite a bit, but still I'm not convinced if the guy is really great or just another hype. Some people say it's Jazz for people who usually don't listen to Jazz - or Pop for Jazzers who usually don't listen to pop. Probably a good musician, but far from being a master or even genius.
    I do prefer Kjetil Møster there...

    @Johnny_Heartfield: of course it’s always difficult with superlatives. I’m not enough into Jazz to really know if it lives up to the hype, but I really don’t care about some hype one way or the other. All I know is, what the music does for me, and it’s somewhere at the upper end of my personal scale. And considering I’m a more or less „rock guy“, it’s seems to be true, what some people say, being Jazz for people who don’t listen to Jazz.I think you could say the same about Herbie Hancock, cause that’s also Jazz and I can listen to without getting headaches

    TRYING to stick to the rules, I found "debut is not more than three years old" way more narrow than I thought, so my suggestion is "Street worms" by Viagra Boys. The cheat being that I haven't heard it yet Yes, I'm slow and missed out on both first two pressings of it (third one coming). But really, it SHOULD be awesome, because their two previous 12"s are, and "Sports" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QjL7D33xpS4) is great

    @Kid A: "I can listen to without getting headaches..."
    Haha - good point! Btw. I like Herbie Hancock a lot - there's a true master!

    These days I get my headaches from listening to contemporary Metal (which I avoid doing most of the times...) Probably I like MP as a kind of "Metal for people who don't listen to Metal". Just joking, of course.

    Breaking one rule, its a tad bit older than a 3 year old band, but this is just so fantastic to not share.

    Gøsta Berlin Saga.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eqpC9s25Ei0

    Check out theyr "detta har hänt" album, its amazing.

    I agree with Tjaaaa in that Gösta Berlings Saga is an awesome band. Progressive and instrumental. It's only 13 years since their debut, so they actually still count as "new" for me

    +1 to Heron Oblivion (besides vocalist/drummer from Espers it contains members of awesome psychedelic-rock bands Comets on Fire and Assemble Head in Sunburst Sound).

    King Buffalo (stoner/psychedelic trio for fans of Elder and All Them Witches): https://kingbuffalo.bandcamp.com/

    Hidden Trails (new band of rhythm section from great prog/psychedelic Belgium band Hypnos 69 (one of my all time favorites)): https://hiddentrailsband.bandcamp.com

    Church of the Cosmic Skull (very nice retro-hard/prog band): https://churchofthecosmicskull.bandcamp.com/

    Just listened to the Gösta Berlings Saga's Sersophane album. Very nice, especially the long "Channeling the Sixth Extinction", which reminded me somewhat of the superb instrumental band Guapo.

    Three Trapped Tigers didn't do it for me.

    Heron Oblivion - Very nice. I really like the contrasts within the music.

    @Punj: We share the same highlight off "Sersophane". "Tog du med dig naturen?" from their first album is so beautiful that every time I listen to it I'm disappointed it's only 10 minutes, and not 45

    @pfnuesel: Then my next recommendation is "Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Uppsala" by Klotet. Must be my most listened to-album of the last six years. Released on cassette in 2013 and vinyl a year ago. I'd say progressive, but also quite to the point, keeping most songs around 4 (+/-1) minutes. Tons of energy, zero vocals and slightly original. Here:

    @grindove - I listened to the debut album too this evening, but had to take a break half way through, at which point I was thinking, hmm, good, but not that great. When I resumed "Tog du med dig naturen" was the first track and I immediately fell into a swoon, deciding, yes I must buy this!

    @Punj: I suppose patience with Gösta Berlings Saga will pay off. I didn't realize how amazing they were until the third album came out, and only after that the first two started growing on me. A few tracks on each album are jawdroppingly good!
