With 2014 almost two weeks behind us, I finally got around to compiling my favorite full length albums of 2014. Be sure to also check out my favorite EPs of 2014!

Structure is one of the most difficult things for progressive rock bands to get right. How do you make a long, complicated song and have it all flow and cohere? Even many popular prog bands struggle with this, so I thought it would be fun to do a series on the different kind of structures used in prog and how to make each of them work.

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.
