Because I have a soft spot for quixotic endeavors—i.e., trying to convince 21st-century music fans that a lot of amazing prog-rock exists, for one—I present to you a mix of said music by ex-Pitchfork writer/current excellent multi-instrumentalist/composer Dominique Leone. This mix surfaced in late 2009, but it will always stand outside of time, in my mind. Leone’s idea of prog is refreshingly diverse enough to encompass tracks by Squarepusher, David Bowie, This Heat, Cardiacs, Zs, and Franco Leprino, while satisfying traditionalists with cuts by Yes, King Crimson, and Magma. Dig in and feel your musical IQ skyrocket.
