Description/Reviews
“Fragments of the 5th Element”  finds MAGIC PIE steering clear of the sterile perfection so often found amongst modern Prog bands  in order to create an album with a slightly more unpolished sound, and  a “rough around the edges” feel  that gives it an added bite.  From the genre-defying opener, to the  epic 23 minute closer, MAGIC PIE clearly demonstrate just why they have become a household name amongst Prog Rock fans, and why this album has been worth the long wait.

Description/Reviews
“A Boat on the Sea” is many things. Catchy and adventurous, but with an underlying current of Scandinavian melancholy—as perfectly captured by returning cover artist DULK. It has huge choruses, rampant guitar play, inventive synths, a plethora of time-signature changes—all the workings of an album of excess, yet it comes together to form a cohesive whole.  Perhaps its most defining feature is that it sounds like Moron Police and no-one else, and no manner of superlative spluttering could really hope to capture its spirit. The best way to describe it would be to hear it.

Country: UK
Genre(s): Progressive Rock
Format: digital
Release date: August 14, 2019

2. Chasing Neon (5:34)

Mark Gatland - bass guitar (1, 2), guitar (2)
Kathryn Thomas - flute (3)

Description/Reviews
The three tracks are very contrasting. The title track is a twelve minute progressive rock instrumental, inspired by the history of the Ark Royal in the Second World War, based on my grandfather’s experiences flying in a Swordfish biplane during the war.
The second track ‘Chasing Neon’ is a retrofuturistic instrumental piece.
The final track is the band's version of the beautiful old Irish folk-song She Moved Through The Fair.

Description/Reviews
The band’s fourth album ‘Night Echoes' is the most collaborative work to date offering the eclectic flavours of what fans have come to expect in the past as well as a new palette and range of emotional expression never before heard from the group. Hemina return with a more concise 45 minute concept album exploring adolescence, nostalgia, grief, and loss in the 21st century with a thematic arc to accompany and elaborate on their previous conceptual output.
‘Night Echoes’ is Hemina at their most emotional and melodic without ignoring the aggressive and venomous side that keeps the music in balance.

Description/Reviews
With its often gentle, thought-provoking songs, The Bell is a fine addition to the Iamthemorning catalogue. Although they occasionally spice-up the songs with a variety of instrumentation, including bass and drums, for me they are at their best with voice, piano and occasional acoustic guitar and strings.

Description/Reviews
Ebb are a 6-piece, genre-defying group of musicians who live within a pagan art collective. Coming from very different social and political backgrounds, they play an eclectic blend of music styles, resulting in prog-rock… sort of. ‘D&M’ describes the arc of a life struggling with conflicting mental states and, ultimately, resolves into an almost ‘enlightened’ sense of self-awareness. Featuring the nostalgic tones of Hammond and Mellotron, the band have taken a classic approach on the record.
