Orions Belte – Mint (2018)

Blanca Records Norway 36 Minutes https://orionsbelte.bandcamp.com https://www.facebook.com/orionsbelte/ Rating 70100 After the initial spin of this CD, I was totally unsure of what to make of this debut album entitled ‘Mint’ comprising nine tracks from Norwegian...

A Line of Crows: Devils Cure (2020)

Echozone Records Germany US CD 37:38 mins Music | A Line of Crows (bandcamp.com) https://www.facebook.com/alineofcrows/ Rating 85/100 The collective noun for ‘A Line of Crows’ might be a ‘Murder’. But the sheer essence of the music from ‘A Line of Crows’, and in...

Ellery Daines: Failure Thirty Minutes Deep (2022)

Since I came across the single No-One I have been waiting for this album to drop, a feeling which was only exacerbated by the follow-up, Imposter Syndrome, but at long last it is here. I could quibble that there are only eight songs, and it is only 31 minutes long,...

Daniel Armstrong & The Monsoons: The Company (2022) single

Realistically, the cover art for this single tells the listener all they need to know about this song, as here are a band who are determined to have a load of fun and bring everyone along with them. It is actually a still from the video, more of that later. The PR...

Pretty Stooked: Wanted (2022) single

Songwriter, guitarist and vocalist Eddie Kiesanowski has been involved in music from a young age, and while studying at ARA he formed his first band, {Skelter}. After they had released their debut EP they headed off to Melbourne with mentor Tom Larkin ({Shihad}). The...

Aria: Love Songs Till Midnight (2022)

Here we have the debut EP from Aria, and a really interesting release it is as well. The focus throughout is on her pure clear vocals which have a tone that bring the listener in close, no matter what style they are performing. In that sense she is somewhat...

No Man’s Land: West Coast (2022) single

This is the third single from all-girl Wellington-based quartet {No Man’s Land}, which I am guessing is the rationale behind the name and I must admit it made me smile. That smile continued as I listened to West Coast as there is a naivety and pop sensibility to it...

Big Scout: Redwood Street Massive (2022) single

It’s not often that a song can take me straight back more than 40 years on the first time of hearing, only to reinforce that with repeated plays, but that is exactly what happened with this angry trio from Blenheim. This is stripped back music which has a great deal...
Edgar Allan Poets -555 (2022)

Greenrose Faire: Following the Wind (2021)

Greenrose Faire: Following the Wind (2021)

As with many bands, Greenrose Faire have worked with different labels over the years, but although I don’t have their debut EP or compilation, I have been fortunate enough to have reviewed all their studio albums and in 2021 they came back with their fifth. Just...

Gwar: The Disc with No Name (2021)

Gwar: The Disc with No Name (2021)

One of the problems of being a comedy or parody rock band is that it can be difficult to get anyone to take any of your music seriously. True, wearing garish costumes and singing songs which lyrically do not leave much to the imagination while frequently covering...

Ivan Macleod: The Magnolia Sessions (2021)

Ivan Macleod: The Magnolia Sessions (2021)

Although this was the final title to be released at the end of the first year of this series, this session was actually the first to be recorded. Anti-Corporate Music and Black Matter Mastering’s Dan Emery, who engineers and produces the recordings, only built the...

Ignatia – Rising: Not One Step Back (2022) single

Ignatia – Rising: Not One Step Back (2022) single

Apparently, these guys were around in the Nineties before they went on an extended sabbatical, getting back together in 2019. Since then, they have released a few singles, of which Not One Step Back is the latest. They describe their music fock 'n' rolk, and...

Janine: Etched in My Soul (2021)

Janine in a Wellington-based folk artist steeped in the 60’s tradition of protest singers and environmentalism, and on this album, she is joined by Jack Binding (acoustic lead guitar, vocals), Kevin Ikin (mandolin, harmonica, percussion, backing vocals), Jenny...

Turkey The Bird: When Turkeys Fly (2022)

Turkey The Bird: When Turkeys Fly (2022)

When one sees cover art where the band are wearing clothes which were never in fashion even in the height of disco, combined with a somewhat unusual name then this is either going to be something incredibly special, or something spectacularly bad. However, I had high...

Steve Tofa: Koko Stax [The Legend of Leni Mafu] (2022)

Steve Tofa: Koko Stax [The Legend of Leni Mafu] (2022)

There are times when an album is put on, and the listener starts to smile virtually immediately, warming to what is going on in their ears and this is just one of those. I loved this the very first time I played it, and it has just got better each and every time since...

Joseph E Harrison: Blameless (2022) single

Joseph E Harrison: Blameless (2022) single

Joseph came over to NZ from Sheffield at the end of the 90’s, since when he has been performing in different bands, most notably in {Brave New Void}. This is a totally solo performance, with Joseph writing, performing, and recording this on his own, and it immediately...

Christian Finger: Ananda (2014)

Christian Finger: Ananda (2014)

There is always something intriguing about music when it is being led and directed by the drummer. The very first jazz album I ever bought with my own money was ‘Drum Crazy’, which was the soundtrack to the film of the same name which told the story of Gene Krupa, and...

Il Sogno Di Rubik: Stati Equivoci dell’Esere (2022)

Bandcamp 38.05 min https://preferstohideinthedark.com https://www.facebook.com/PreferstoHide/ Rating 80/100 Every now and then along comes an album that grabs your attention but mysteriously and for whatever reason, is not clear at the exact time of listening....

  • Avyakta – Somnium Chorus / Desiderium
    by Basil Francis on May 23, 2022 at 6:00 pm

    Why should I introduce Avyakta, when the man himself does such a good job? From Avyakta’s Bandcamp page: “Avyakta is a Sanskrit word meaning ‘devoid of form.’ In other words, something without limits. It is a one-person music project — the dream child of Jesse Agins. The intention of this project is to experiment with [&hellip

    The Dome / Boston Music Room / Aces & Eights, Tufnell Park, London 14th & 15th May 2022 Having thoroughly enjoyed the last Portals Festival, held at the same venues in September 2021, I was keen to experience it again and duly bought an early-bird ticket, the quality of the event rendering the line-up virtually [&hellip

  • Bernard and Pörsti – Robinson Crusoe
    by Bob Mulvey on May 21, 2022 at 6:00 pm

    The Samurai of Prog machine keeps rolling along, whether it be as Bernard and Pörsti, as it is here, individually in Mr Pörsti’s case, as The Guildmaster or TSoP themselves, with an impressive eleven studio albums released, so far, in the last two years. Let me further qualify this as when I say albums, I [&hellip

  • Art Griffin’s Sound Chaser – The Seven Ages of Starlight
    by David Edwards on May 20, 2022 at 6:00 pm

    If vibrant and expressive jazz fusion mixed with intricate instrumental prog rock is your thing, then the latest album from Art Griffin’s Sound Chaser, entitled The Seven Ages of Starlight, is not to be missed. The Canadian band, led by talented songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Art Griffin, really pull out all the stops. The band was [&hellip

  • Robert Berry’s 3.2 – Alive at ProgStock
    by Jez Rowden on May 19, 2022 at 6:00 pm

    Robert Berry has always been a quality performer who should be much more well known than he is, despite the high-profile collaborations he has been involved in since the mid-’80s when he was recruited by Keith Emerson and Carl Palmer as the ‘Lake’ element of their reconstituted ELP project, 3. The resulting album, 1988’s To [&hellip

  • Last Flight To Pluto – Random Karma, Fate And Destiny

    Welsh band Last Flight to Pluto, return with their third album, Random Karma, Fate and Destiny, following their impressive 2019 release A Drop in the Ocean, once again on Robert Reed’s White Knight record label. When a musician as eminent as Magenta’s Rob Reed takes an interest in a band then you can be confident [&hellip

  • Möbius Strip – Time Lag
    by Mel Allen on May 17, 2022 at 6:00 pm

    This album has taken a while to come to my attention, which is a shame as I was so impressed with the band’s self-titled debut album, released in 2017, and began to look forward to their follow-up release. So here we are with their second album, Time Lag, and the return of these young Italian [&hellip

  • The John Irvine Band – Psychopomp
    by Bob Mulvey on May 16, 2022 at 6:00 pm

    Edinburgh based, The John Irvine Band return with album number five, and it’s a welcome addition to the already impressive back catalogue released over the last decade or so. Formed circa mid-2011 – and it probably goes without saying – the constant across the JIB albums has been composer and guitarist John Irvine, the ‘band’ [&hellip

  • Pure Reason Revolution / Gazpacho
    by Rosamund Tomlins on May 15, 2022 at 6:00 pm

    EartH, Hackney, London Sunday, 17th April 2022 Some of us went to earth on Easter Sunday. No, not hiding from anyone, although you’d be forgiven if you’d thought we had if you’d seen us disappearing through the unobtrusive, but scarlet painted, door which initially appeared like the side goods entrance for the neighbouring restaurant businesses; [&hellip
