Pray For Brain: None Of The Above

Read "None Of The Above" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

New Mexico is known for its picturesque landscape, arts & crafts and Mother Earth type activities, but not cited for harvesting diverse progressive rock power trios. In addition, the band's marketing pitch asks, “What happens when two Buddhists and a Muslim meet to make music?" Evidently, a whole lot is going on, as the musicians' incorporate ...

Matte Henderson with Marco Minnemann: The Veneer Of Logic

Read "The Veneer Of Logic" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Guitarist, composer and futurist Matte Henderson is a former student of iconic progressive rock guitarist and founding father of King Crimson, Robert Fripp. He integrates some classic prog fundamentals such as odd-metered crunch chord voicings and wily rhythmic episodes, abetted by his collaborator and all-universe drummer Marco Minnemann. But Henderson spices up the program with muted ...

Shrunken Head Shop: Live in Germany

Read "Live in Germany" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

This international group is captured performing improvised music in Germany, featuring guest trumpeter Dave Laczko on three tracks that reside somewhere between Miles Davis' Bitches Brew (Columbia, 1970) era and experimental trumpeter Jon Hassell's work. Laczko and guitar whiz Willie Oteri have also recorded under the moniker WD-41. Indeed, both artists are known for pushing the ...

Stick Men: Deep

Read "Deep" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Interestingly enough, this production was funded by fans through the Pledge Music website. The positive outcome should instill delight and a sense of fulfillment for the band's patrons, perhaps one of the densest incarnations of a progressive-rock trio imaginable. Tony Levin's (King Crimson, Peter Gabriel) Chapman Stick work, coupled with Markus Reuter's (Tuner, Europa String Choir) ...

Under The Psycamore: I

Read "I" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

One of the more satisfying and alluring progressive rock releases of 2012 is presented by the Swedish duo of Jonathan Greiff and Carl Blomqvist with cellist Tora Greiff Bergstrom. They must have been doing something right to garner the attention of album producer; revered Warr guitarist, composer and stylist Trey Gunn (King Crimson, Invisible Rays).

Zweiton: Form

Read "Form" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Alexander Dowerk maximizes the capabilities of the touch guitar, along with expert drummer Alexis Paulus, on this quality outing, where classic progressive rock inclinations align with a nouveau twist. The duo is a multitasking machine, as both artists employ electronics and programming within the mix. Highlighted by memorable themes and a few doses of lament, the ...

Gavin Harrison & O5Ric: The Man Who Sold Himself

Read "The Man Who Sold Himself" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Controversy usually sparks insightful arguments, and the third effort by this duo, including a DVD 5.1 surround sound mix, will assuredly summon disparate opinions. A largely experimental progressive rock endeavor, perennial poll-winning drummer Gavin Harrison (King Crimson, Porcupine Tree) and touch guitarist/vocalist O5Ric present a storybook-like presentation, abetted by existential lyricism and a throng of jarring ...

Ozric Tentacles: Paper Monkeys

Read "Paper Monkeys" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

A band that has endured the dips and spikes of the progressive-rock genre since its inception back in 1983, UK-based Ozric Tentacles has the beat on jam-based space-rock via its signature style of execution. With undulating synths, driving pulses and layered sculpting techniques, the quartet almost always bestows a sweeping plane, centered on lucid imagery and ...

The Galactic Cowboy Orchestra: All Out of Peaches

Read "All Out of Peaches" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

This Minneapolis-based quintet may whet the appetite of Dixie Dregs or Mahavishnu Orchestra enthusiasts, but the ensemble's progressive-rock stance snugly fits into the newer trends of this genre, where dissonance, melody, jazz-like improvisation and odd-metered time signatures all reside on a synchronous musical topography.

“Memo" accentuates the group's divergent compositional style, partially based on ...
