Apparitions by Funk You

Apparitions by Funk You

Augusta, Georgia is home to Funk You, a band with big sounds that finds the space where prog rock meets funk. Their album Apparitions provides this and so much more, including the wonderfully artistic arrangements and the set up of the song sequencing.

World at Large

World at Large by World at Large

The Norweigen group World at Large employs some really original arrangements, rhythms and vocal approach on their self-titled fourth studio album. Of note is the song “The Difference” is a driving rocker which falls somewhere between alternative and show tunes.

Crimewave EP by Port Juvee

Crime Wave EP by Port Juvee

Canadian post punk outfit Port Juvee forges a unique sound which reaches a point midway between eighties new wave and nineties grunge, but with some unique sonic elements. Some of the better tracks on their EP Crime Wave include the title song and the interesting “Bleached Out Soda Pop”.

Chasing Rainbows by Wishing Well

Chasing Rainbows is an aptly titled album by Wishing Well, as the Helsinki based group has a sound similar to Dio-era Rainbow sound. Highlights include the interesting arrangement of “I’ll Never Let You Go” and the interesting deadened guitar of “Sands of Time”.
