Prog 2013

Some of my favorite prog releases of 2013 (and a couple of 2014 snuck in there).
1The Wrong Object
After The Exhibition


Belgian band. Jazz-fusion in an aggressive style. Some great stuff on here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UrHXs9edass
2Unreal City (Italy)
La Crudelta Di Aprile


New RPI band from Northern Italy, grand and operatic with 70's style. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NaaGHDhmV84
3Birds And Buildings
Multipurpose Trap


Eclectic prog, if you like King Crimson and Gentle Giant and don't mind a bit of zeuhl thrown in then check it out. Album is a real grower. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OaBJrhVSwXM
4Guillaume Perret
Doors EP


Brilliant fusion from French electric sax maestro. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3qWjdwTRPZo
5Fatal Fusion
The Ancient Tale


70's style prog. Very likeable. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u0MsSjVYbsM
6Fright Pig
Out of the Barnyard


Real mix of stuff from heavy prog riffing to trad folk melodies. Very entertaining and a bit bonkers (in a good way). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oQnZ-tCFJ8g
7Nemrud
Ritual


Excellent heavy space rock from Turkey. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=og5jI6XWXjA
8Days Between Stations
In Extremis


Highly polished symphonic stuff. Some beautiful compositions. Wakeman, Levin play on it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gtBeYotQwEo
9Arlon
On The Edge


Decent Polish prog. Maybe a bit formulaic but give it a whirl you might like it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HrL5IYVIM5E
10Huis
Despite Guardian Angels


Some beautiful melodies, organic sounds with a mix of modern and retro, if you like Marillion or stuff like Gazpacho you might dig this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XIk3qP1ibBY
11Sky Architect
A Billion Years of Solitude


Dutch heavy prog. A bit like Haken and Riverside. Not bad. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s3WCJabGRoE
12 Three Monks
The Legend of the Holy Circus


Some nice RPI from the back end of 2013. Keyboard centric noodlings with a dark atmosphere. Lots of pipe-organ. ELPish. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TFpb4q1KY_0
13Oceans 5
Return To Mingulay


Sort of folk/space-rock with a sea-shanty feel. Pretty good if you are in the mood. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nDz-azPaqGs
14Vienna Circle
Silhouette Moon


A bit twee but some very pleasant proggy tunes for frosty mornings. Mostly relaxing stuff. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zHNc-q4PA88
15Orphaned Land
All Is One


Not up there with Mabool but pretty damn fine release from Israeli prog-metal band. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bds3FALcR7M
16Amplifier
Echo Street


Quite a change in style from previous albums but still enjoyable. Shimmering space rock. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mOzRzoE-F5Y
17Teeth of the Sea
Master


Electronic/post-rock with a techno vibe. Some mesmerising beats on here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iuNQcx2G2Ww
18Riverside
Shrine of New Generation Slaves


Bit of a change of direction adding some more bluesy hard rock to their sound. Really enjoyable and more accessible than previous releases. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qU1JYSzlYJI
19Haken
The Mountain


Well known, nothing to add.
20Steven Wilson
The Raven That Refused to Sing


Well known, nothing to add.
