Yonder Pond – Pondering Aloud (2017) review
A second solo (self release) by Remy Stauli of Switzerland, who has spent many years in the music scene with various bands ranging from Zappa cover group (Fido Plays Zappa) to avant jazz rock (older avant prog lovers may recall Spaltklang and Yolk). On Remy’s first solo (‘The Elf Album’ – 1997) he released it under his actual name. It was a much overlooked masterpiece of early Canterbury delight, with vocals, keys, drums, guitar, all done by him, and a hair more aggressive than this Yonder Pond project, 20 years later. He describes ‘Pondering Aloud’ as progressive rock, which was/is his first love.
