Lis Er Stille - The Collibro - 2010 • Denmark

Lis Er Stille is a band from Denmark founded in 2004 as an art project between the painter Vindril and singer Martin Byrialsen. The idea of this project was for Martin to make Vindril's paintings into music, but as time passed the music grew and a band was build from it.

Lis Er Stille's philosophy on making music made their music fairly broad in influences while being subtle when presenting them in their music. They released their debut, Construction of the Amp Train, in 2006 and it received great reviews as well as being "pick of the month" on June of the same year by Rolling Stone Magazine's senior editor David Fricke. In April of 2007 the band released their second album, Apathobvious, which saw the band's ambitious and grandiose way of making music with longer compositions and album length as well as a wider music vocabulary.

When looking at Lis Er Stille from the surface most of their compositions resemble that of post-rock bands as well as some alternative rock bands like Muse, Coldplay and others, but there's also a prog rock undertone in them. Some people recall past prog rockers when hearing Lis Er Stille while most will likely see links with the modern prog and related bands. Highly recommended for fans of post-rock and the modern alternative / prog bands. (ProgArchive)

RPWL - Wanted (2014) Neo-Prog


Some albums are challenging to review. RPWL's new album "Wanted" is certainly one of these. It actually sparked a discussion on my Facebook page "The PROG Mind" about the ultimate meaning of lyrics and about how a reviewer should consider them. More on that later.   RPWL have so much personality. Their music definitely leans on Pink Floyd stylistically, but I don't feel that they are derivative or a clone. Their music, while built on a specific foundation, is lively, varied, and extremely interesting. The music gets your attention so well through layers and layers of different sounds. In fact, on first listen to "Wanted", I was immediately gripped.   The band mixes a Gilmour-esque guitar structure with awesome bass lines and equally awesome keys. Kalle Wallner on guitar is magical with his excellent solos and his driving, distorted licks. Werner Taus on bass is perfect with his funky and truly inventive bass grooves. His rhythms work their way in and out of the music with wonderful results. Yogi and Markus on keys are probably my favorite, though. The keys range from awesome synth and organ to piano and electronic passages. The keys not only provide atmosphere and solos, but they are also a method of transition between sections. There are loads of sound effects present, too, that I personally like. I'm not sure what others think of sound effects in the music, but I find they create a unique and memorable experience. The rest of the band are excellent, as well. Marc Turiaux on drums may be the unsung hero here, though. His excellent rhythms and fills complete and drive the music well. Yogi on vocals has a mellow voice, delicate and rather emotional, too. His message that he is pushing is definitely felt from his heart.  The music, in a nutshell, is like Pink Floyd on steroids and with a funky pop twist. It's rather upbeat at points, dark in others, and definitely features a progression from dark to almost atmospherically light. It's as if the end of the album represents an epiphany musically. I really like the thought put into this structure and into the personal touches and subtleties that stand out throughout the album.  Lyrics are important to me, though. I can't rate an album without first understanding and considering the lyrics and their content. However, I also realize that lyrics represent their writers' thoughts and ideas, and I have respect for differing views. Again, however, as a critic, it's my job to provide information. "Wanted" is basically about the paradise and unity that would result if religion were to be eradicated. Religion is seen an illusion, and those that adhere to it as blind, intolerant sheep. Now, I'm not going to go into this, even though I could. But, I will say that the lyrics are very well written. They are challenging and written in a mature manner. I respect that. But, in my opinion, they are ultimately uninformed about history and reality.   Overall, though, this album is excellent. No, it's more than excellent. It's stunning. The musical personality on display here is top tier, as are the composition skills and execution. The band is certainly playing like a well-oiled machine, full of ideas and out-of-the-box thinking. This album is the the first must-hear of 2014. ProgArchive

Hudson-Ford - Worlds Collide (1975) (UK) Pop-Rock, Progressive Rock



Hudson Ford were a UK rock band-style duo, formed when John Ford and Richard Hudson left Strawbs in 1973. The original lineup featured Hudson (now playing guitar instead of drums) and Ford along with Chris Parren on keyboards, Mickey Keen on guitars, and Gerry Conway on drums. Conway left in May 1974 prior to the recording of "Free Spirit" and was replaced by Ken Laws. Mickey Keen left the band in December 1974 and was not replaced. The lineup remained stable from that point until the group dissolved in late 1977. The first album Nickelodeon also featured session musicians including Rick Wakeman. In 1979 they re-surfaced billed as The Monks. Hudson and Ford had been in Elmer's Gantry's Velvet Opera in the mid 1960s and they both left the group and joined Strawbs, where they stayed until forming "Hudson Ford".

Rock Raro - o maravilhoso e desconhecido mundo do rock - volume 2


Segundo volume do projeto Rock Raro, traz uma analise de colecionador de 343 discos raros de grupos diferentes, sendo um disco por banda de diversos países, entre o final da década de
1960 e começo dos anos 1980. Escrito por Wagner Xavier com colaboração do amigo João Carlos Roberto, o livro é um trabalho consagrado desde o lançamento do primeiro volume em 2011.

Incluindo discos de hard rock, progressivo, blues rock, psicodelismo sendo que cada página traz um texto descontraído sobre o disco, fotos diversas do álbum, ficha técnica além de uma cotação baseada no gosto dos autores e que varia entre 3 estrelas (discos bons) até diamantes (preferidos dos autores).

Trabalho inédito em todo o mundo, o livro rememora grupos com alta qualidade musical mas que de alguma forma não fizeram o sucesso esperado na época do lançamento de seus discos e viveram a margem dos grandes grupos da época como Led Zeppelin, Beatles, Deep Purple,
Pink Floyd, Black Sabbath, Emerson, Lake and Palmer, The Doors, entre tantos outros que estouravam na época áurea dos grandes grupos.

Não deixe de conferir, adquira antes que se torne um livro raro.

Irmandade Dos Blogs - Postagem Especial do Dia Mundial do Rock.


Hoje dia mundial do rock está sendo feita a primeira postagem da ''Irmandade dos Blogs''. A irmandade dos blogs é uma página criada no facebook que tem o objetivo de fazer a união de donos de blogs brasileiros, com os objetivos de haver uma maior divulgação desses blogs, de fazer postagens especiais em conjunto em épocas distintas, além de fazer com que os donos das páginas façam o intercâmbio entre si, se conhecendo, realizando parcerias entre os blogs e fazendo amizades. Até o momento 23 blogs estão fazendo parte desta associação que foi criada recentemente, e que encontra-se em fase de estruturação funcional. O grupo também foi aberto para os membros e visitantes de cada blog participante, que terão a oportunidade de interagir com os blogueiros, fazendo pedidos, dando sugestões, ou simplesmente fazendo amizade com os mesmos. Abaixo está a lista de blogs que estão participando dessa postagem inicial de estréia, com cada blog fazendo a abordagem em cima de um disco ou banda diferente. Visitem!!!

National Health - Of Queues And Cures (1978) UK) Canterbury Scene, Jazz-Rock/Fusion


NATIONAL HEALTH was one of the last of the great "Canterbury-style" progressive rock bands. This band performed the same shiny Canterbury Progressive with a touch of jazz-rock, following HATFIELD AND THE NORTH's philosophy, with complex keyboards parts, the saturated guitar of Phil MILLER. Their first eponymous opus is one of the most important albums of the Canterbury scene, containing a unique mixture of rock, jazz and classical music. This is a great find for Canterbury fans and a rare treat in the spirit of the likes of GENTLE GIANT, SPOCK'S BEARD and ECHOLYN.

Polushon - Dépaysement (2014)


Polushon é o pseudônimo de Leopoldo Varela, geek, musicólogo e linguista de origem mexicana. Este álbum é a sua estreia como músico, resultado da combinação de teoria musical com algoritmos generativos e instrumentos digitais. A música como a linguagem pode ser dividida em palavras e regras pra usar essas palavras. Assim, com algumas premissas aleatórias (e emocionais), descobrir melodias como as de Dépaysement, que em francês significa "expatriação". Um álbum dedicado a os latino americanos migrantes que cruzam diariamente os trilhos do trem que estão em frente de sua casa.

Bland Bladen - I Grévens Tid (2003) Psychedelic/Space Rock • Sweden


Very interesting debut by this Swedish outfit, re-released now in 2008. The music here takes it's cue from the space rock of the 70's, at least in sound and style. A big, fat bass line is the foundation in most segments on the four tunes here, with psychedelic guitar licks and spacey synths improvising on top, spacey synth sounds adding texture and a very 70's electric piano adding melodic themes from time to time. Drums and percussion seems to be the pacesetters.

Sound and style reminds slightly of bands like Hawkwind and Ozric Tentacles, and there's some obvious similarities to Öresund Space Collective too; which isn't a surprise as these two bands have some mutual members.

Recommended for fans of improvisational sounding space jams, in particular those who fancy this style of music with a 70's sound ( Review by Windhawk on progarchives)
