Any American Prog Experts?

I couldn't be more sympathetic to the 68-75 Prog / Zeuhl / Krautrock project and its utopian and hermetic outlook.

That said I haven't found much of anything that is North American (at least not from outside of Quebec and Ontario) that has the same relationship to the Romantic movement, deals with the utopian / dystopian futures of science fiction and also incorporates the influence of electronic music, jazz, psych and minimalism.

God knows I've tried and I have spent a fair amount of money unwisely over the years without hitting on anything that's carving out a space apart from the Anglo-Italian idea of prog.

Am I missing anything I need to hear that is somehow managing to simultaneously draw on the likes of Walt Whitman, Steve Reich and PK Dick?
