Martin, Felix - Live in Boston
Felix Martin is this quite young looking guitarist who invented a 14 string guitar which he plucks and taps and generally abuses to great effect. The sound veers wildly between progressive rock (think Upsilon Acrux tapping mixed with Cynic/Gordian Knot esthetics) and jazz rock. He's got a real band here and this fact keeps it from being just another shred-fest. It's a little bit relentless, but in a good way. Check out the youtube clip below and see for yourself!
