MUSICA URBANA-S/T, LP, 1976, SPAIN



The first album by this astonishing Spanish prog crew (whose album link has sadly been down for ages elsewhere in the blogosphere) is filled to the brim with soaring and frequently dizzyingly dense ethno prog/fusion moves that remind me of both Yugoslavia's R.M. Tocak and their fellow spanish prog traveller Gualberto, but with an eccentric and whimsically wandering (almost R.I.O.-like) approach to structure. The resulting mix, filled with dense pointillistic clusters of jazzy micro-activity and haunting symphonic prog themes is cut by subtly avant garde-ish strategies in a way that reminds me most of Italian avant prog titans Picchio Dal Pozzo. A thing to marvel at.

Note: this link has been deleted, as I somehow stupidly managed to overlook that Forced Exposure still had copies of the CD reissue, which can be found Here

Rapidshare has not functioned at all well for anything recently. The only thing that will get me renewiing my subscription is the 5+ GB of stuff I have there. Heaven knows how much you have.

Dear Fellow Mutants,

We’re Late For Class here. Thanks for posting A Collection last year. We don’t pester our blogging buddies for space every time we release something. But, for #40 - a 2-CD best of called Another Collection, we thought we might ask. Blogroll links are the best, as that’s about our only source of traffic. #40 is streaming and available for FREE download on our blog...

http://werelateforclass.blogspot.com/

You can post #40 Another Collection, if you’d like. We’ve even made it easy by creating a page with codes to our animated artwork and MP3 players so your readers can hear ALL of both CDs (listening on YOUR blog, not redirected). There’s even some text if you don’t want to bother writing it up. Just copy and paste whatever you want. Naturally, we’d be VERY thankful. And, in the future, when our species comes to rule this planet, your name will be on the protected scrolls so that no harm will come to you...

A rather good sounding version of this album is currently on YouTube for anyone who really wants to hear it like I was. The whole album too! I'm on the first track and I'm speechless. Love it.
