Northern Lines – The Fearmonger

The music of these Italians leave lots of breathing room for the listener without venturing into the more ambient droning sound. This is instrumental music, that almost sounds like it would leave room for a vocalist, even if it really don’t need one. With that in mind the experience becomes very pleasant and entertaining for the listener. 3.5/5 ★

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★
