What shows up in my collection usually has a few of the following:
- A neoprog sound focusing more on melody and harmony than rhythm.
-Prog rock pretentions- Long songs with illusions of pseudo counterpoint)
-Unusual timbres and instrumentation
-Interesting linguistics in the music
And some probably just hits some childhood psychic nerve (cf., Sigmund Freud and cathexis)

    Mermaid (2016 Limited Edition Remaster) Mermaid (2016 Limited Edition Remaster)
    This album, originally published in 2011, is a solid neo-prog work with the combination of melodic guitar interweaving with solid keyboards. The female vocals also add a nice touch. What makes this album particularly interesting, is the addition of Nerissa Schwarz's harp, which really adds broadens and enriches the sound of this band.

    This album is fun. It's more retro than "neo" anything. It's sound feels 60s, but updated with riffs and gimmicks from bands all the way up to the 90s. There's a kind of subtle humor here: a sort of homage to retro for later bands that were already doing retro. It's that very conscious awareness, which makes this album shine.

    Conglomeration (or: The Grand Pathetic Suite) Conglomeration (or: The Grand Pathetic Suite)
    Prog rock, humor, and strange twisting of the riffs of yesteryear? Now combine this with lyrics that have a sense a humor, and you have the Shamblemaths. Even without the two Ph.D.'s Simen Ellingsen's is a solid composer. Great critiques of old rock idioms for those to hear and yet listenable. I suspect that bassist Eirik Husum is the one who keeps this music close to earth.
  10. String Quartet Live!

    This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody) This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)
    Okay, his sound tend to the pop and not a clean fit in my collection! So what! I just think he creates a great sound with string quartet, which creates a great melodic and rhythmic interplay. Then, the timbre of Mike Savino's banjo is great too. Finally, the Kishi Bashi's lyrics are both smart and phonically sensitive. Pop music that sounds smart- you can't beat it!
