    Farmhouse Odyssey

    This band has been mentioned here a couple of times, in the New Releases thread and then again in some other threads, but nobody has made a big deal of them and I think this is a very big mistake. They have 2 albums release to date and honestly, I can't decide which one is better. Young band from California, their music is an eclectic mixture of progressive rock, fusion and funk, but they have tracks where I hear a very distinct Canterbury influence. Head over to their Bandcamp page where you can stream both albums, but here is a sample from each of them:





    The music is very complex and bound to reward the listener multifold as it gets played again.

    I really like this band and have been listening to them off and on for the past two years. Their two studio albums are rather dense but in a highly rewarding sort of way. There's excellent musicianship all around. Everytime I return to FO, they reveal something more of themselves, and for me and my own listening habits, that's a sign of musical longevity. The guys seem rather young, too, so I hope that translates to a long career.

    Here is a video of them performing two songs, "Shipwreck" and "Sleeping Silent", at the 2015 Summer Arts and Music Festival (in California, I'm guessing).

    There's a pleasant summery feel to what I've heard so far. I like it!

    I’ve only heard a little of the newer one, and I need more time with it to let it sink in. But I like what I’ve heard so far. .
