This is the 2017 digipack debut by U.S. prog band Troposphere, who share most of their members with the bands Canvas and October Tree. Not surprisingly, Troposphere sound similar to those bands, that is, melodic prog with a 1970s pop/rock aesthetic and organic sound, in the vein of Phil Manzanera/801, later Caravan, or The Alan Parsons Project. This album is probably the best yet from this group of related bands. (kinesiscd.com)
