    New album by Twenty Four Hours. I think it's no. 7 since the early 90s.
    It's not like anybody noticed…

    ^ The female vocalist is inaudible on that track. Strange.
    I like the part where Icarus hijacks the Little Red Hen.

    I thought that first too, but it seems her voice is just very close to the one of the guy.

    London Underground - "Four", the entire album:



    I really like what I hear. Released on Musea, just like the previous two.

    Yes, very nice stuff with great 60s 70s feeling. Band of the second keyboardist of Standarte (he played only live with the band) and also now with Standarte's bass player (who joined from Merry go Round)

    The Celeste track is sublime. You never list where North Americans can find these Italian gems.

    Sorry, I'm in no position to say where to get those albums in North America.
    I'm in personal trouble to get these in Germany as well, sometimes i have to
    contact the bands directly.

    Although Germany is much closer to Italy I bought a few of those albums from
    US dealers. In general I would say just research the net, Celeste will have their
    new album released by Mellow Records. They are based only on Bandcamp as it seems, so have a look there.

    If it comes to North America and Italian Prog, I would have a look at Greg Walker
    as he seems to be the go for guy here.

    hey, that's some fun stuff right there! I thoroughly enjoyed that
    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?

    Okay, this is helpful. I'll try the band site and then go the Greg Walker. The Celeste album really sounds like a return to form. I'm such a fan of their first album.

    They also seem to do a crowdfunding now, a bit odd as they already have a lable.
    So it might still take some time for the records to be released.

    New album by Andrea Tich best known for his 70s album "Masturbati"

    IMO the best current Italian prog artist is Kingcrow, and they have just released a new album, worth a listen if you have not heard of them before.
