Week 20 – Art Rock – Letters to Maro

De Duitse band Frequency Drift ligt ons goed. Met ‘Letters To Maro’ zijn we alweer bij een zevende album en begint de qua line-up steeds meer op een project van Andreas Hack en Nerissa Schwarz te lijken. Maar laat dit niet de pret drukken!

Clemens Leunisse van Prog Wereld: “Het is ook geen licht concept dat de basis vormt voor ‘Letters To Maro’. De naamloze hoofdpersoon keert terug naar de stad van zijn jeugd en komt er kort gezegd achter dat het najagen van genot en normaliteit niet de sfeer van verlies kan vernietigen. Hier slaagt de band in zijn opzet filmische muziek te maken, want ik zie bij dit soort teksten de Noord-Koreaanse nieuwslezeres uit mijn vorige recensie weer voorbijkomen…

(…) De productie is ook weer dik voor elkaar, waardoor het sounddesign goed tot zijn recht komt. … Read more...

Week 19 – Art Rock – Gyreland

Singer/songwriter & gitarist Peter Matuchniak draait al meer dan veertig jaar mee in de prog scene. Bomber Goggles is zijn nieuwe project samen met Steve Bonino (basgitaar), Vance Gloster (toetsen) en Jimmy Keegan (drums).

Prog Archives review: “The music to my ears is very similar to Gekko Projekt, and as the album is a narrative concept, it bears similarity to Gekko Projekt’s “Reya of Titan”, also a narrative concept. This means that it should be very good music and indeed, if this had been a Gekko Projekt album, I would have said it’s their best to date. However, as it is a Bomber Goggles album, I must say that they have started off firmly on two very fine feet on solid plastic!

Though there are no epic tracks on here and the song structures are not overly complex, the musicianship and songwriting is not only excellent, but the band members prove their skill at bending time signatures and exercise their diversity in styles, all the while coming across as very focused and concentrated, as opposed to overreaching and scattered all over the place.… Read more...
