Green Lung – Black Harvest

I can ramble all day long about Green Lung and every little detail I spotted in their outstanding and fresh music, but I like to keep my reviews as short and sweet as possible. You have to check them out yourself. Do it. Join the cult. Join us.

PFM (Premiata Forneria Marconi) – I Dreamed Of Electric Sheep

What PFM have created here, and it is very much intentional, is akin to a movie soundtrack, it has all the feel and sounds that lend itself to the big screen experience, like being at the movies without the pictures, but allowing you, the listener, to have the images created in their own head.

This time on the Progtalks, guitarist and vocalist Sondre Skollevoll gives us a tour through the history of Moron Police, including the much-heralded album “A Boat on the Sea” from last year, and, of course, their upcoming EP “The Stranger and the High Tide”.
