Mostly rock — that’s the theme for this episode. Groups such as The Mercury Tree and Horse Lords are a couple of the groups heard this week among others creating what can only be described as rock music that utilizes microtonality. Among this, are some laid back “traditional” microtonal works by Lou Harrison, Aepiel, and Georg Dimitrov.
