There’s a well-protected place in my psyche for avant-rock music. I also have a strong appreciation for Western (usually European) music that incorporates styles, scales, etc. from regions like North Africa, the Middle East and Eastern Asia. Not that I can discuss the technical aspects of those scales and styles, but they definitely resonate with me.
When avant-rock artists connect with musicians from those regions, it feels like heaven on earth. In my mind, this meeting of French and Korean is especially noteworthy. Ladies and gentlemen: PoiL Ueda.
