Tampax - that's exactly what I thought.

It is.

There's a Tangerine Dream-Facebook page where Wouter Bessels (who wrote the liner notes on the new In Search Of Hades-box) and Christian Gruhn offer remixed/upgraded versions of original albums and live recordings from the Tangerine Trees in higher formats.
Last projects were Hyperborea and the Firestarter- soundtrack with extended versions which just stretch the tracks out a bit more.

The downloads are free.

Foxygen - Hang

Well, there’s a lot going on here. Foxygen are a bit odd in that you never know what they’ll come up with next. That applies album to album and individual tracks on them.

On “Hang” they have a full orchestra backing them, and the singer changes style from Jagger, to Bowie to Lou Reed from track to track (a nicked observation but very apt.

I seem to remember their debut album went down quite well on here - if that was you and you haven’t followed through with Foxygen, give this a whirl. It ain’t prog but it goes in a lot of different directions.

The wonderfully prolific and inventive Norwegian band’s recent release which I’m sure was classed as a 3 track EP when it was 1st released but now seems to have morphed into an LP. Well it is over 40 mins of music even if it is only 3 tracks.

Motorpsycho - The Crucible

I really should spend more time with their music. As should you.

All expanded editions (didn't care for the American mix of Tab in t' Ocean).

Many thanks to whoever included Nektar in the prog cup, 'twas the inspiration.

Daal - Navels Falling Into a Living Origami

Interesting stuff from this Italian duo / band. Spacey (not really my bag), bit ambient (not really my bag) and pretty slow to move on from section to section in the 50 minute single track (it’s actually divided into 8 sections) which can be a bit off putting.... and yet on 1st listen I found much to enjoy.

Great progressive title to the album! :D Navels feature in another of their titles so one can only imagine they have a fascination with belly buttons.... Well, who doesn’t?

New to me today (released last year) - Ovrfwrd - Blurring the Lines.... A Democracy Manifest

American band doing instrumental progressive music. Quite heavy in places but never metal, and not post rock.

My choice (and general path these days) is to avoid instrumental only bands but a few enthusiastic reviews pulled me in. Very impressive as it happens.

(Christ, there’s so much great new prog music being released isn’t there?)

Argentinian prog band’s debut album from 2006. They were formed with the aim of creating an audio visual show and by all accounts the shows were quite spectacular.

Symphonic but with lots of twists - bit of tango, lots of violin and quiet piano passages, decent guitar, some heaviness, in large parts instrumental.... it’s a very good mix actually. Vocals are delivered in good English (heavily accented are a bit of a turn-off for me).

William Gray - Living Fossils (and no, I have no idea where the band name comes from, not that anyone was asking as it happens.)
