Evan Witt Been on a post-rock/math-rock kick for the last couple of months and I am more than happy to add this album to my collection. Everything about it is beautiful, from the music to the cover art. Favorite track: Lights at Rendlesham.

Michael Howell A perfect alchemy of Post & Math, an enveloping work of assertive mysticism. Favorite track: Salvo.

Roy Meerkamper Excellent prog by a really good band. Their first effort was a little too math-rocky for me, but this one shows a maturity and an interest to amp up the complexity without sacrificing melody or continuity. Really fun to listen to. Found in Dr. Beaf's collection.

Dr. Beaf What a huge sound for a three piece band. Stuff is happening everywhere. Always fascinating, sometimes complex, other times gentle and generally encapsulating. These guys have a brilliantly competent refinement of their art. I could just imagine a conversation goes like "Does this sound boring? Perhaps we should throw it into 6/8 time and have heaps of other things happen for fun! Better yet, let us keep Beaphy happy and have some long epic instrumental tracks". Definitely worthy of a Vinyl buy! Favorite track: Halcyon Days.

Chris Scanlan Rhythmically challenging, but melodically engaging. Completely inventive, and wholly unique. Favorite track: Tetralemma.

Track Name: Luma
Way in the back of the line
your peace is a dim street light amongst the neon signs

Run in place all the time
chasing down your long lost fight as the days slip by

Change into a fresh set of skin
paint yourself in green and blue and pretend you're you

See reflected up on the screen
old movies in black and white in your dreams last night

You fall apart at the sight
can't let a few bad times obscure your life

Watch the hillside in bloom
illuminate as the glowing lights learn to fly

Hey, you took it in stride
spitting image of father's pride when you say "bye bye"
