The third album from the innovative progressive rock outfit. Sensual, spiritual & unrestrained by musical boundaries, the dramatic, multi-layered arrangements combine with haunting vocal melodies to create a powerful & epic work where panoramic soundscapes give way to fragile moments of acoustic intimacy.
Karnataka is a Welsh band that was formed in 1997 by Ian and Rachel Jones. Rachel has since left the band, while Ian steers the helm of the band forward. The band has recently undergone some major changes, including the addition of Haley Griffiths, replacing Lisa Flury on lead vocals, Louie Palmer, replacing Ian Harris on drums, and multi–instrumentalist, Colin Mold replacing Enrico Pinna and Gonzalo Carrera on guitar and keyboards. Symphonic, Folk or Neo Prog? Perhaps all of these styles combined together. Folk is here also in element of unusual instruments like whistles and Uilleann pipes. This album is simply the brightest side of Prog releases of 2010. It's masterpiece of positivity, of good mood, optimistic thinking.

French artist Colleen is fearless in her willingness to explore new sounds and new ways of creating music as a solo performer. On her new album A flame my love, a frequency she introduces the most drastic change to her music since she began singing on her fourth album. A chance encounter with a Critter and Guitari synthesizer at King Britt’s Philadelphia studio on the Captain of None album tour cracked the compositional model wide open. Colleen bought a Critter and Guitari Pocket Piano with the aim to use it through a newly-acquired Moog filter pedal to create new and interesting rhythms to accompany her voice and viola da gamba. But it turned out the sounds of this viola and rhythm combination was not what she was looking for, so in typical Colleen fashion, she set the viola da gamba aside altogether and picked up an additional Critter and Guitari synth, the Septavox, dug out her her trusted Moog delay and dove right in.
