Hands - Caviar Bobsled (2015)

Hands is one of the 'lost gems' of symphonic prog rock, a short lived band from Texas/USA, who was active in the second half of the 70's. Now recently they have reformed and released a new album, which is strongly influenced by 70's American prog folk. I have just discovered it, otherwise this great release would have been in my top releases of 2015!

Izz - Everlasting Instant (2015)

Izz is a modern symphonic prog band from the US. I am spinning the latest and 7th release, which was one of my favourites of last year. The music, influenced by Genesis and Yes, features lush sound layers, a driving bass, sophisticated vocal arrangements and an overall blend of Rock, Jazz, Latin and Funk.

Special Providence - Essence of Change (2015)

Special Providence is a band from Hungary with a conventional line up of keyboards, guitar, bass and drums. The instrumental music is based on a highly virtuosic blend of jazz rock/fusion and a heavier side of prog. I saw them live at the Loreley Night of the Prog, and it was completely fascinating. Today I am playing their latest studio release.
