Recommendation: Druckfarben - Druckfarben (2011)


I usually try to avoid this type of comparisons when recommending bands, but I'll make an exception in this case.

Fancy some sharp and poignant keyboards-drenched, guitar-driven progressive rock a-la Rush, Kansas, Gentle Giant, ELP and YES?

A Brief Brief

Due to my workload in the lab as well as to a baby appearing very soon in our household, the upcoming Hangings are delayed for the time being (not for too long, I promise)

However, do expect more reviews (White Willow, Synkoke, new albums from AltrOck and Black Widow), more recommendations and more featured albums.
Those will be posted as soon as my schedule allows.

For now enjoy Major Parkinson's Heart Of Hickory

Interview: Jason Spradlin from Herd of Instinct


Herd of Instinct's s/t debut album was released earlier this year through Firepool Records (Djam Karet's label).
I reviewed the album here.
To sum up my review - I love the album (I just wrote it in a more fancy and prolonged manner).

Drummer Jason Spradlin has kindly answered the questions I sent the band, through their producer Dave Streett.
I'd like to thank Dave for making this short interview possible.
