Week 24 – Art Rock – Ones & Zeros: Vol. 0

Voor lezers van Radio 68 is de Amerikaanse band 3RDegree geen onbekende. De band is al van halverwege de jaren negentig actief. Ook kan je niet anders dan concluderen dat 3rdegree bestaat uit door de wol geverfde muzikanten. Ze vormen een perfecte balans tussen vakmanschap, eigenzinnigheid en toegankelijkheid.

Prog Archives review: “Listening to this, the new and hotly anticipated 3RDegree album, my first thoughts centered around “Connecting”: the band, more aggressive than ever, sings of trolls emerging, not in the high fantasy sense you’d expect from most prog but in the contemporary sense of malicious online hordes more fearsome than the forces of Mordor. Mostly, where Vol. 1 was focused on a parodic, Kafkaesque near future Internet of Things, Vol. 0 – appropriately enough for numerically taking a step back – is a record of the present, of our current technological issues, and from here looking forwards.… Read more...

Week 23 – Art Rock – Frammenti Compiuti

Deze week stellen we de Itliaanse prog band Malaavia aan u voor. Malaavia maakt een mengeling van Italo-prog en wereldmuziek die amper te vergelijken valt met welke band dan ook en dat terwijl de muziek overal opmerkelijk dicht bij huis is. Voor de rest maakt de Rock Progressivo Italiano de dienst uit.

Dick van der Heijde van Prog Wereld: “Ik zeg dan wel zo stoer dat Malaavia een band is, maar feitelijk is de bezetting, op zanger/gitarist/bassist Pas Scarpato na, op elk album zo goed als anders. Het label (Maracash Records) noemt die rigoureuze wisselingen zelfs een trademark van de band, het moet niet gekker worden. Hoe dan ook, Scarpato mag zich met recht mister Malaavia noemen. Niet alleen is hij mede componist van de meeste nummers, tevens is hij verantwoordelijk voor de teksten en het daaraan ten grondslag liggende concept.… Read more...

Shortly before the death of dictator Franco, Catalan singer-songwriter Raimon performed a new  song called  “Jo vinc d’un silenci”, meaning ‘I come from a silence”.  The singer says that he comes from a place and an age of silence, where common people live and die anonymously.… Read more...
