The multi-national line-up consists of Israeli drummer Asaf Sirkis who is also the composer of all songs, English keyboardist Gary Husband, Scottish bassist Kevin Glasgow and the U.S. born English guitarist Mark Wingfield; that charismatic and beautifully haunting vocal of Polish singer Sylwia Bialas applies as an additional instrument that matches perfectly with overall cosmic atmosphere of this excellent album. "Solar Flash" has been in the making for the last two years. They created some wonderful spacey soundscapes and therefore "Solar Flash" is a highly appropriate record to everyone who loves the 70s-like 'progressive' jazz-fusion.


    On the Bandcamp page, there's a quote from "Dr. Bill Bruford." What is his PhD in? Or is he an MD? Or is he just a Doctor of Prog (and Jazz)?

    From Wiki: "In 2016, after four years of study, Bruford earned a PhD in Music at the University of Surrey." I hadn't been aware of this, kind of cool!

    A very relaxed, reverberating and airy atmosphere, consisting primarily of floating guitar, soaring synthesizers and ethereal female-vocal interludes, adorn the new CD of this five-member British space-rock ensemble. Outstation remain within the genre framework and have delivered a quite spacey, spherical and stimulating music. And as is the case with the space-rock genre, not too much is happening, but the music glides forward voluminously and hypnotically, cosmic-psychedelic and spherical-mysterious. Howling electric guitars work their way forward, the synth sounds lush, the bass and drums create impulsive, leisurely space-rock patterns. Amanda Sanderson's singing is rather good. A quite nice space-rock comes out of the speakers, which in its slightly pulpy and roaring-rocking power is reminiscent of various Hawkwind' songs.
    Although the range of variation in the space-rock music has never been particularly one of the features of the genre that is actually based on awesome repetitive e-guitar riffs, on "Malevolent Energy" there are really changes, as there are some pleasant, soft and melodic parts where the sax gently solos and flute plays very tame, but everything remain rather cosmic and ethereal. Indeed, a lovely record that can be warmly recommended not only for the space-rock freaks.

    Thanks for posting this. I wasn't familiar with Craig Fortnam's work and really love this. Ordered the CD. (Too expensive to get the vinyl shipped to the US!)

    Newly signed to Bad Omen Records, Birth is an extremely promising new band from California. The self-titled debut EP offers some appealing, apparently genre-defining Progressive rock. Keyboards contributions are lush and serve here as a creative extension for excellent and clever guitar solos. Very nice vocals, to these ears somewhere between Mont Campbell and David Byron. Overall, the music that is delivered here is exhausting, cruel, bizarre, neurotic, surreal, insane, twisted, aloof, pretentious, in short: great. But also entertaining, funny, amazing, uplifting, amusing, in short: brilliant. For me, "Birth" is one of the most worthwhile and encouraging debut EPs that I know. Remember this band.

    The really big train seems to have reached its home station. On "Common Ground", Big Big Train are once again operating at a high level. Wonderfully relaxed, 'symphonic' music echoes from the speakers. Big Big Train is again becoming increasingly clear with its own style. The songs are full of lovely details, hidden gimmicks and clever twists and turns. Colourful and dreamily instrumental passages with rich instrumentation and powerful melodies should delight every devotee of English noble, symphonic-soulful Prog Rock songs. Musical thirst for adventure tends shall to be satisfied here. If you like to enjoy the wonderful flow of music, just let Big Big Train to take you into some other worlds.

    The Far Cry album If Only (go listen on Spotify). Neo-Prog. Good musicianship. Songs are well-written although lots of repetitions. Lyrics are sometimes a bit cringey but OK.

    I should like this more than I do. Why am I bored?

    Track from a new album by The Hideous Goblink, called Regal Worm: https://www.normanrecords.com/record...ideous-goblink

    The guy behind The Hideous Goblink is Jarrod Gosling, who is one half of the excellent duo Cobalt Chapel.

    I'm hoping it will have lots of the grungy old psychedelic organ sounds that drench the best of the Cobalt Chapel choons.

    Fragile have been the Yes tribute band from Germany that had toured the UK & Europe in various line-ups for the past 20 years before they started to create their own songs. This is their second album and Fragile show again what great musicians they all are. "Beyond" is a quite nice album in its bombastic exuberance, with a lot of Yes' delicacy. In my humble opinion, this record belongs to the better ones regarding the prog-rock releases from the current year and definitely should be a worthwhile purchase for someone who likes the Yes' style of Symphonic rock.
