Last week I was listening a lot to Pattern-Seeking Animals' self-titled debut album. I think it is one of the better ones of 2019 at this point. The more I listen to it, the more I like it!
Pretty amazing. Already looking forward to the second one. And they promised one!
Indeed a bit poppy, but still, there's so much in there. I lost count of how many times they shift between time signatures. Pretty cool 15/8 and some 7/4 and 5/4 and such. All in one song. The drum is pretty cool. Of course the songs sound as if it could have been a Spock's Beard album. Which, in my opinion, speaks volumes about the influence of John Boegehold in both of these bands. It sometimes makes me think of Yes also. Not really that much of a stretch either. Spock's have covered Yes songs and they're all fans.

Talk about Yes... I also listened to Billy Sherwood's "Citizen: In The Next Life". Nice. His voice sometimes reminds me of Chris Squire (why am I not surprised) and also Peter Gabriel at times. Or maybe, more specifically, he sounds like a cross between Peter Gabriel, David Longdon (Big Big Train) and Bill Hubauer (Neal Morse Band). Music is not bad either. Not blown away (yet!) but not bad at all. I will definitely listen to it again!

Although, I was very surprised and impressed by this band called UMAE, from Iceland/Canada. I just discovered their debut album "Lost In The View", so I have to listen a lot more to them before I can talk more about them. There's a bunch of guests on this album, including John Wesley (known for his work with Porcupine Tree), Connor Green (Haken), Eric Gillette (Neal Morse Band), Adam Holzman (Steven Wilson) among others.
Check it out on Spotify or Bandcamp!

Another one: Issun with their album "Dark Green Glow". Very nice as well. I have to listen a lot more yet. But I'm also typing them down here for my own personal note.

Last one for now: The Invisible Presence - "Between The Truth And What We See". Interesting! To me, there are some obvious Radiohead influences on this one. And I recognise Steven Wilson's style too. Oh and they must be big Mike Oldfield fans, because there's an enormous in your face Tubular Bells rip off in one song. It's probably intended as a tribute instead of plagiarism. I like the concept of this album. It's based around multiple novels by Philip K. Dick. You know, Blade Runner, Minority Report, The Adjustment Bureau, Total Recall, etc. I don't think this album will become a favourite of mine per se, but for some reason it's keeping me interested anyway. So it must have something good!

These all go on my discovery list.

I listened to it on Sunday. Wasn't that enthusiastic, but I'm no Spock's Beard fan either ... Will try it again though :).

Ambeon - Fate Of A Dreamer

now, that is a seldom thing to see... a few months a go I had the time to flip through what I have from the Arjen back catalogue, and I also listened to the Ambeon album... Back when I bought it, I was high on it. Nowadays it doesn't thrill me too much, it's too much of the same thing, methinks.

I don't play it that often, but when I do, I'm really enjoying it. Especially 'Cold Metal' and 'Sweet Little Brother' are excellent songs.

Teramaze - We Are Soldiers

Another album I was looking forward to after their great previous one 'Her Halo'. Yet another disappointment for me. Too much of the same and less catchy melodies ...  ::). Glad I didn't order it and listened on Spotify first :).
