This album has many rhythmic & atmospheric modern keyboards, a bit like on the "Stereotomy" album. The vocals are still very good, and the songs are more pop than progressive; the tracks are although well made and catchy enough. Not bad at all, this album has quite good keyboards textures and electric guitar solos…
Welcome to the latest mix of new progressive sounds on this equally new Prog magazine cover disc. Brand new Amplifier and Cosmograf. Up and coming British prog from Koyo and Kylver, while the appearance of Tim Burness may evoke memories of the 80s for you. James Ivanyi and the brilliantly named Orsome Welles hoist the Aussie prog flag high, and Mumpbeak, Gaudi and Bubblemath offer something a little more left field.
Welcome to P52, Prog magazine's second cover CD for 2017. You don't get much bigger than Steve Hackett, here with Hungarian jazz band Djabe, lending a new twist to Steve's own The Steppes. Or Oceans Of Slumber, who boldly take on the Moody Blues' Nights In White Satin in emphatic style. Or Japan/Porcupine Tree keysman Richard Barbieri, with new, jazz-flecked solo fare, and of course Touchstone and Ghost Community, who weigh in with some grand, melodic music. Elsewhere, the UK's Beatrix Players add melancholic beauty, and Multi Story complex intrigue. New Australian bands Anubis and Hemina show there's some exciting new music being made Down Under, and Jug Bundish do the same for Costa Rican prog.
Vajra is the compilation from the Italian based label Indica Music. Compiled by Josko, this compilation features mostly globally well known artists (Gaudi, Cell, Tripswitch, Aes Dana and more). Trying to discover new directions in music and to spice up the monotonous new age style of today, this compilation is a sexy stew of electronic and ancient world influences, spontaneously blending different styles of ambient, downtempo and dub. Vajra is a must have for ambient lovers, chillers and lazy dancers, this compilation will surely be the perfect answer for all those selective listeners.
