My personal journey for “new music territories” and new bands/artists is like an eternal journey… sometimes you get to meet new places and discover their appealing music sounds and others “some weird sounds” are coming to you out of nowhere. More or less that’s what happened with 1476… but what exactly is this band all about?
I am not very sure, but from what I’ve gathered, Holz is actually a one-man’s-band and that man is called Harry Holzhauer. The album “Shizu” is a collection of experimental basically guitar based post-rock songs.
Possibly the most anticipated prog release of 2013 will be released on May 15 – the sophomore album by celebrated LA prog duo Days Between Stations titled “In Extremis”. Boasting an incredible guest line-up of music legends featuring Colin Moulding (XTC), Rick Wakeman (YES), Peter Banks (YES/Flash) Tony Levin (King Crimson/Peter Gabriel) and Billy Sherwood (YES/CIRCA:), Days Between Stations reach a new level of creative artistry on their new album. With a title like “In Extremis” (Latin, In extremity – A term used in reference to the last illness prior to death) one can begin to understand the intensity and sepulchral mood of the musical direction.
The setlist for the new LEBOWSKI’s album selected! It was a difficult task to extract 8 compositions out of 16. This means only one thing, the 3rd album will come sooner than expected!
Now we will spend a couple of weeks refining the tone and arrangements, then the entire summer in the studio. Those who have had a chance to listen to us live, already are familiar with a huge part of the new material and know what they can expect.
The Pineapple Thief frontman, Bruce Soord and Jonas Renkse from Katatonia have announced a June 4, 2013 release date for “Wisdom of Crowds”, their new project, set to drop this spring on Kscope.
Originally written with Renkse’s voice in mind, Soord sought out the acclaimed Katatonia vocalist to complete the compositions and release the music to the masses. Despite the rigorous schedules of The Pineapple Thief and Katatonia, the two musicians were eventually able to connect and the rest is rock n’ roll history.

None was prepared for a new David Bowie album. When he announced a new studio album & released the single “Where are We Now?”, in his 66th birthday, every single fan was thrilled. After all, this was meant to be David’s studio comeback after 10 years.
The Green Violinist start their debut album “More Thrill & Never Ending Blessings” dreamy, playfully, enchanting... From there, the music proceeds quietly flowing and full of wonderful harmonies. The songs will catch your attention. Vincent Defresne, leader and songwriter of the band, admits he was inspired by the painting by famous artist Marc Chagall 'The Green Violinist'. He managed to capture the spirit of the picture in an incredible way and to transfer it into music. The result is a wonderful collection of Neoprog-songs containing its fair share of acoustic moments (guitar, piano and violins). But the range goes further including electronic, almost trance-like songs that take you into another world.
