CNQ fave Martin Månsson Sjöstrand of Dog Paper Submarine and This Heel is back with the Martin Månsson Sjöstrand Trio, and a nine song digital album called "Universum Faller." My dad taught me there's something special about a three man band. Excellent instrumental prog-surf, the Swedish trio's first album in six years is available for pay-what-thou-wilt on Bandcamp, and absolutely worth paying for (as is anything and everything Martin Månsson Sjöstrand is part of, he's a real talent). And speaking of montages, check out the cover art for "Universum Faller," too cool:
Dedicated CNQ-ers know I'm also a big fan of Boys Age from Japan. Here's another new instrumental album, 6 songs, $2.50 for a digital download. Speaking of cover art, I always love Boys Age cover art. I wonder if he does it himself.
