Miriodor - Cobra Fakir (2013)
The eight album from this Canadian band.
Miriodor is a trio with a lineup of banjo, turntables, keyboards, guitar, bass, piano, synth, percussion and drums.
I have not heard their first seven albums as this band has only come to my attention when they released this album. I got this album and their new album, the 2017 album, from them. A review of that album will come next week/you can find a review of that album somewhere else in this blog.
Miriodor is an avant-garde/RIO band. There is no doubts about that, listening to this album and visiting their band pages. The three band members are truly nerds with a very sideways look at music and art. Which is a good thing in my opinion.
The music is not crass and it is not dissonant. It is very harmonic and nice on the ears.
The melodies are avant-garde throughout with a lot of very nerdy strange melody lines done by electronica and keyboards. There are also some nice and gentle bass and guitars involved.
This fifty minutes long album are very playful with a lot of fun and quirky melodies and tracks. It is also a good album which will appeal to everyone into eclectic and avant-garde prog. This album is indeed a nice introduction to avant-garde music.
