USA, 1995, avant-prog / avant-folk

Amoebic EnsembleLimbic Rage

It’s like a 70s RIO band and a 90s klezmer cover band had a baby and produced this weird monstrosity. Definitely more prog than folk. This music is seven people doing whatever they want and having a fun time doing so, hang the expectations of the listeners. Accordion and hurdy gurdy… sure. But, no avant-prog release is complete without the inclusion of the bassoon. By the way, the album title taught me about limbic rage, a “seizure-like disorder in the limbic system of the brain that causes unpredictable and often unprovoked rages.” Weird. This album feels more like play than rage, though. That real-life medical condition is some dark shit.
