A Comment from Son Andrew leads Me to Southern Empire So the other day after I posted my review of Damanek, and suggested that I would be checking out United Progressive Fraternity, my son Andrew provided this comment on Facebook.... And if you like United Progessive Fraternity check out Unitopia and Southern Empire...UPF and Southern Empire were formed out of the ashes of Unitopia So after checking out UPF and liking what I was hearing I took Andrew’s advice.

Damanek – On Track  And that they are!

Damanek - On Track   The other day I was listening on Spotify to Sound Coloring the latest release from the Progressive Rock band The Adekaem. I had the music on in the background, while I was working on some projects around the house. So while I liked what I was hearing it wasn't a really good listen. Anyway, when the album was over the music continued with a soundtrack provided by related artists. One of the artists was the band Damanek. The album was their 2017 release On Track.  About Damanek and Crossover Prog  After hearing the band on that...

New Prog Rock from Australia’s Kettlespider – Kettlespider

Kettlespider - Kettlespider So this morning I went on a short quest to find some new prog rock to which to give a listen. My first stop was progstreaming.nl. The first album that I listened to briefly was titled Latitude from a band called Lesior. It was not exactly what I was searching for. So I continued reviewing the albums. Actually, I didn’t go very far because the next self-titled album Kettlespider looked interesting. So I quickly went to Spotify to check it out! I knew I would like this album when I saw that the list of Related Artist...

For All We Know's Latest  - Take Me Home Provides the Music :So today was a running day, I left about 8:15 knowing that would give me enough time to finish, take a shower and eat before 10:30 when I had to pick up granddaughter Zoe at school. The one thing that I didn't remember was my wife had A doctor’s appointment at 10! One of the reasons that I forgot was that she was sick this morning and didn’t go to work. II was made aware of my forgetfulness a little more than a half mile into my four...

A Fine Day for A Great Run – Music by Karibow

A Fine Run Highlighted by a 9:52 Mile! - Yeah Me! - Life's Little Victories! Over the last few weeks I have been checking Weather.com's rating for going for a run. Considering the conditions, clear skies, low temperature and humidity I figured it would be a high rating. It was 8 out of 10. That was slightly lower than I thought it would be, but still great. No excuses if today's run wasn't a good one! The Run But with that said the run didn't start out too well. I wasn't too far into the run before I realized I...

Today's Soundtrack: Cydemind - Erosion - Canadian Progressive Metal   The soundtrack of my four-mile run this morning was Erosion the latest release from the Canadian Progressive Metal band Cydemind. (You can read about the run here). The album has been in my music rotation for the few weeks and I have found it very interesting.There's a certain sameness to the tracks, but that happens with instrumental albums. At least in my opinion. Anyway, here is some background information on Cydemind. About Cydemind The music of Cydemind draws on a lot of influences and their music combines Progressive Rock. jazz...
