Pando – Hiraeth (Aesthetic Death)

“Writing about music is like dancing about architecture” . A quote often attributed to Frank Zappa but possibly actually said by someone called Martin Mull. Whoever said it – if anyone did at all is moot. For once it feels… Continue Reading →

Messenger – Threnodies (Inside Out)

This version of Messenger is the London-based progressive rock band. I’ve heard of them but I confess that this is the first time I’d listened to any of their work. What struck me at first was the clean and dreamy… Continue Reading →

Glowsun – Beyond The Wall Of Time (Napalm)

Sunset in the 12th House – Mozaic (Prophecy)

Cave of Swimmers – Reflection (SR)

If you’re going to flop-flop over as many genres as possible in what is basically an extended EP, then this is a study in how high you can aim. Cave of Swimmers have been attracting no small amount of attention,… Continue Reading →
