Necromonkey - Necroplex (2013)

In a musical landscape dominated by artists who seek to recapture the essence of 1970’s groups, Necroplex is a modern and fresh offering from Mattias Olsson (ex-Änglagård) and keyboardist David Lundberg (Gösta Berlings Saga, ex-Änglagård), that combines elements of space-rock, Krautrock, Zeuhl, electronic music, and a few uncharted genres as well!

Electric Wurms album cover

Electric Wurms features Steven Drozd and Wayne Coyne switching roles with Drozd on lead vocals (among other things) and Coyne playing bass, while members of Nashville psychedelic/experimental group Linear Downfall round out the group. Throughout Musik, die Schwer zu Twerk (which is Google translation of "music, that's hard to twerk to" in German), Drozd and company write songs similar to the Flaming Lips style of noisy psych rock but with more krautrock and progressive rock influences.

After reading about three acoustic interludes on Agalloch’s The Serpent & The Sphere being written by a Canadian songwriter in a band called Musk Ox, I immediately found a Bandcamp page for an instrumental band from Toronto called MuskOx.
