    Found out about HNIA in 2011 and never looked back. Amazing and unique (and sometimes creepy) stuff. The rare kind of music you can listen to while being inside your own head...

    Go see them if they come to your town. The new material sounds great live, and they also played songs several songs each from Mouth by Mouth and Stars on ESP, as well as others from their vast back catalogue. Here's my review of the Austin show: http://www.last.fm/user/yuggoth_spider/journal/2015/04/02/6hw87g_austin_sleeps_on_a_legend

    The last release I heard from DeFever and co. was a free jazz tribute to Marion Brown. Now heady concept prog that really does sound like an obscure artifact from the early 70s-- a bit hokey despite the obvious talent. I guess I grew up hearing (and not always enjoying) some of the stuff his name is emulating here. Um, it's about evil twins in the womb of a pregnant woman with all songs from different perspectives. The vocals are all song in overdubbed unison as female harmonies, which as a matter of taste I could live without. Still, the talent, audacity and dedication are impressive.
