Is this something new?

“Hey! What’s this? Oooh, a review of my favourite artist X, I didn’t know that there’s a new album out… And look, an interview with band Y! I never heard of them, let’s check them out!” … Today’s question: What “triggers” you to read a certain review/interview, listen to a podcast/radioshow, or to click on a certain link (like this one)?

O.R.k. – Soul Of An Octopus (2017)

Soul Of An Octopus is the second studio album by the fresh sounding quartet named O.R.k., one of the many projects where Colin Edwin (who has garnered most of his fame with the band Porcupine Tree) is working on at the moment. Sir Edwin is one of my all-time favourite bassists out there, and I’m glad he continues providing wonderful music with several bands, projects and collaborations. I was afraid that O.R.k. would be a temporary project, but I’m really glad they continue making beautiful music and made this second album. Continue reading “O.R.k. – Soul Of An Octopus (2017)”

The Mute Gods – Tardigrades Will Inherit The Earth (2017)

Just one year after their debut release Do Nothing Till You Hear From Me, The Mute Gods already have a new album that needs to be heard by the people who live on planet earth… or maybe they have sent a copy to Mars already, I don’t know. Tardigrades Will Inherit The Earth is the title. You know, those small creatures that can withstand high pressure and very extreme temperatures. The creatures who made this album aren’t that small at all, we are talking about Nick Beggs (lead vocals, bass guitar, Chapman Stick, guitar, keyboards), Marco Minnemann (drums, percussion, guitar) and Roger King (keyboards, programming, production). If you have no clue who they are, you have probably seen them playing along with Steven Wilson and/or Steve Hackett. If you still have no clue, then you probably live under a big (prog) rock.
