NFR What are you listening to?

Two I have been listening to from groups that changed their methods of going about the recording process. The first is California band Djam Karet, who have been doing the post-rock thing since before anyone called it that. Their latest release,' A sky full of stars for a roof' grew from some soundscapes made by the drummer who passed them on to the band leader who edited them and made his own additions, largely Middle-Eastern acoustic instruments, before inviting the rest of the band to add their own touches.
The second is from Norwegian outfit Panzerpappa whose current record, 'Summarisk Suite', was conceived by exploring old music files for inspiration. From ambient to all-out jazz-rock, there is some outstanding playing here that doesn't stand out due to the tightness of the band and the compositions. Two fine examples of instrumental rock.

Panzerpappa? Hmmm?
 
@515miker , Wow these guys are so great! I’m streaming a 30 minute YouTube of them playing Live at Gum Gully. Like you said, I TOTALLY hear Otis Redding too! (Plus i like that the lead singer is not too hard on the blinkers. )



I just looked them up and they are from Australia. And the lead guitar and singer are brothers. And Wikipedia compares them to Wilson Pickett and Otis Redding. (Funny because i was thinking of the guy Andrew Strong (i think was his name) who played the lead singer in that movie The Commitments, a band that was dedicated to Wilson Pickett.)

Thank you @515miker for linking this! I love finding new music. I just bought two of their albums from Amazon.

I believe this is my favorite new stuff posted on this very long thread!
