    I have one of their releases but have not listened to in quite some time.

    First I have to locate it, could be a problem.

    Good to see that The Earth Explorer still exist.

    After the new ptf and Interpose+ last year it's about time for another of those few great japanese bands to release something..

    There’s a new Interpose+? I knew they were still active (despite one of their key members leaving to form...TEE!), as their website was still being updated (last I checked, Shinko “Panky” Shibata from Ars Nova was their bass player), but hadn’t heard anything about a new (third?) album.

    EDIT: Well, that cover looked familiar. I guess I saw it as an upcoming release, yet forgot about it. I don’t know why, I like Interpose+, and was hoping they’d release a new album for a while.

    Cool. I like the previous Tee releases.

  13. #13
    I'm glad to see quite a few of you are interested in the release!
    Yes, TEE has been continuously active since 2006 when the band was formed. Any of the members have not been replaced.
    We have not toured overseas since we joined ProgSud in 2010, but been having gigis in Japan regularly.

    For whom looking for the previous releases including digital, we have those available on CD Baby. Please check the following link:

    Cheers!

    There are still a lot of great Japanese bands active.

    But very few doing the "old prog" thing.

    I have the first album by the mastermind of Mongol and it's not very good
    Why is it whenever someone mentions an artist that was clearly progressive (yet not the Symph weenie definition of Prog) do certain people feel compelled to snort "thats not Prog" like a whiny 5th grader?

    There are a few Japanese bands that have gone silent over the last couple of years. Aside from the aforementioned Mongol and Naikaku, I wish KBB, ExhiVision, Tri-Offensive, Flat 122, Pochakaite Malko or Side Steps would still release something. These are all bands that were active after 2000. But I can understand how musicians evolve, they get involved in different projects and they don't want to go back to the style of music played 10-15 years ago.

    KBB's last release in 2013 "Age of Pain" was fantastic.

    and it appears KBB has a gig in December 2018 in Japan. Hope they record a new album!

    There were rumors of a new Tri-Offensive, and ExhiVision is an offshoot of Prism. You should check out KYO-SEN and Fragile.

    "ptf" have a new album "The World[s]".

    They are close to KBB a little less Jazz but more Synph.
