Virgil & Steve Howe – Nexus

The very diverse and extense musical expertise of both musicians, and that connection only father and son can have, can be felt through all the songs. The result is this beautiful album. Very different to what you could expect, not progressive rock, but with a lot of elements from it, and a varied array of styles. A legacy and a family effort from start to finish. 3/5★

Wobbler – From Silence to Somewhere

“From Silence to Somewhere” is Wobbler’s 4th studio album, yet another solid step in a short but highly acclaimed discography. True to their origins and influences, the Norwegians continue their musical career in a display of musicianship and well-matured compositions both with complex and simple arrangements with melodies that will stick in your head. Only 4 songs for a total of 47 minutes of Prog-grandiose. From beautiful Mellotron solos and edgy guitar riffs, to renaissance inspired passages to odd touches of flamenco and latin grooves to Italian recitals. This album has it all! A combination of elements and sounds that will surely find a place in the heart of any prog-lover of bands the likes of Gentle Giant, Yes, ELP, King Crimson, Genesis, PFM, etc. 5/5★

Kamancello – Kamancello

Beautiful music created with the heart, in a stream of pure improvisation, captured live without editing. Just as it came pouring from the passion and expertise of Shahriyar Jamshidi and Raphael Weinroth-Browne bringing together two different musical heritages, two different cultures that when both agree and hold each other’s hands, make clear we’re no different at all. This album is a celebration of music, of life and creation. Whether you’re into chamber instrumental music or not, I can only recommend you to buy this album now. It is one of the best things you could do today. 5/5 ★

Zaius – Of Adoration

What might be considered ‘prog’ in “Of Adoration” is that Zaius venture into adding not only interesting changing rhythmic patterns, but the aforementioned general djent-post-rock-instrumental-album formula is entirely dismissed. This produces a fresh approach against the current trends in instrumental prog/post-rock music. 3,5/5
