Here are some great tunes mostly from bands I’ve recently discovered, and a few I keep rediscovering.
1. Bullitts Dominae by Pure Reason Revolution — This song has a grip on me. I love it!
2. Longings End by Parzival’s Eye
3. Colours by Airbag — If you haven’t heard Airbag you’ve got to hear this.
4. Winter Dawn by Tiamat
5. Meredith by Oceansize
6. Paper Waves by The Gathering
7. Father Bachus by Focus — Sounds Jethro Tull-ish
8. Sole Survivor (Live) by Asia — Great live version of this song.
9. Homesick by Airbag — Beautiful sad song.
Hello, it’s about time to return to the music, and to progressive rock with a leaning toward art-prog-whatever. I love this genre that I just made up and I think you will too, starting with the beautiful, melodic, and somewhat out of character “The Nurse Who Loved Me” by A Perfect Circle. Enjoy.
1. The Nurse Who Loved Me by A Perfect Circle
2. Some Warmth Into This Chill by Nosound
3. Wasted Land by RPWL
4. Full Circle Poetry by Magic Pie
5. The One You Are Looking For is Not Here by Katatonia
6. Hell Freezes Over IV by Gazpacho
7. Snowdrops by The Pineapple Thief
8. Longings End by Parzival’s Eye (A lesser known RPWL spinoff band)
9. The First Rebreather by Big Big Train
10. Impression I by Lunatic Soul (a Riverside project)
Hope you enjoyed that and I hope that it will encourage you to explore these bands and related bands to really discover what they’re all about.
The 1960’s was a very potent music scene. Never before or since, has so much magic been conjured up during so short a span of time. Here’s some of my favorites–mind you, some of them were one-hit wonders, but some also thrived on for decades, and a few are still going strong today. Update: I changed three songs because I noticed they are repeats from previous playlists. There may still be one lurking in here. –Tim
