    Check out Isobar - another brand new one featuring Mattias Olsson on drums!

    Mattias is sepia. Sometimes!

    Other times, he's just weirdly hilarious. (Love to Matthias!)

    I got the notice for this as well. Based my sampling of each track, it's a great-sounding album that includes trumpet and sax alongside the usual guitar, bass, drums, and keyboards (read: mainly mellotrons and such).

    really good album!
    I detect a hint of Happy The Man in places, but not like a clone. Love it!
    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?

    I am the OP of this thread, though I haven't checked up on it very much I am enjoying listening to some of the suggestions.

    For the record, I wasn't trying to start a trend calling those retro Tron and melancholy flute bands "sepia toned" I just thought it was a silly descriptor for music that reminds me of those photos of empty crumbling Scandanavian homes with an abandoned doll in a chair that you sometimes see on metal covers.
