Algernon: Familiar Espionage

Ever heard of neopsychedelicpostrockjazz? You should, it's great. It's the kind the music that is made by Algernon, a Chicago five piece whose sophomore album Familiar Espionage is an all instrumental journey through feedback, blink-and-you-miss-them Beatles melodies, Zappa-inspired vibes, heavy metal outbursts and left field Syd Barrett weirdness. It's that good.

Guitar player Dave Miller is the resident musical genius of this band, the kind of composer that music critics will refer to in the not too distant future trying to pigeonhole other maverick six string wizards.
