This is clearly the correct move, given that it's the second to last show before RoSfest!

Well, then, okay. :lol

So, some more good news from tonight. I've been jotting down some things that got requested and didn't have, and the station got a hold of them this week.

This includes: Soul Secret, Forgotten Suns, and Parzival's Eye.

It’s not every week that a Swedish prog outfit puts out a new album, it can just seem that way sometimes! This time around the prolific band in question is The Tangent, and our featured album this week is their brand new offering, A Spark in the Aether. You can learn more about the band at their website here, and buy the album from Amazon.

There were also a lot of debuts on the show this week. New albums have been released by Gavin Harrison, Soul Secret, Parzival’s Eye. Although there is no new album to report, Lo-Fi Resistance also had their debut on the show.

I also learned this past week that Riverside will be performing shows outside of ProgPower USA. One of these shows will be at the Crossroads Theater in New Brunswick, NJ, and will be hosted by the NJ Proghouse. That same outfit and theater hosted Riverside during their first ever North American headlining appearance in 2008.

When Prog and Power Unite will be taking over the airwaves on Wednesday, April 29 from 5-8pm CDT/6-9pm EDT/10pm-1am UTC. There won't be a featured album this week, but instead there shall be a featured festival! Between this broadcast and next I'll be heading to beautiful Gettysburg to take in RoSfest! However the show will not be strictly RoSfest artists, and we will be debuting FORGOTTEN SUNS and Ghost Ship Octavius on the show.

Hey folks, no show tonight unfortunately. I am going to try and push out my review of RoSfest today, which is going to be an audio review and live tracks thrown in. I will also try to do a broadcast tomorrow and get the normal podcast out on Friday. Lots to do and little time to do it though, so some of this might get delayed.

Yeah, nice to see the new site. I really can't tune in to the shows themselves due to time differences and my working schedule, but I think I'll have a vacation for a week somewhere in May so I'll join in for that one show if it will indeed take place (6th of May, I think).

So I can finally attend the show now that I'm on that aforementioned vacation, and it's cancelled. So much for my luck.  :lol

Dammit, very sorry about that. :(

Unfortunately no way I'm getting the review done, up and promoted today, so I will likely try and do the broadcast and podcast tomorrow, followed by the review on Saturday.

RoSfest 2015 review!

Quote
This review is quite a bit different than the norm. Instead of trying to write about over 15+ hours of music that was the RoSfest weekend, as well as the interactions between sets and at the after parties, I’ve decided to go ahead with an audio only review. You will hear a few thoughts on each set, and then for most bands a live song from their performance at RoSfest. Several acts will possibly be releasing their sets officially, and so studio tracks have been used in those instances. Below you can find links to the festival as well as all the bands. Sit back and re-live the weekend with me!

When Prog and Power Unite will be taking over the airwaves on Wednesday, May 13 from 5-8pm CDT/6-9pm EDT/10pm-1am UTC. As this is our first broadcast since RoSfest, you can expect some play and talk related to the festival, which brings us to our featured album. This week it will be the self titled debut album from British act Synaesthesia. We'll also be premiering a lot bands on the show, including Ted Leonard (solo), 3RDegree, Abel Ganz, Little Atlas, Nordic Giants, Sonus Umbra, and the Von Hertzen Brothers. A good festival always refreshes the playlist (and depletes the wallet) for your benefit!

A very special When Prog and Power Unite (www.wpapu.com) will be taking over the airwaves on progrock.com on Wednesday, June 10, from 5-8pm CDT/6-9pm EDT/10pm-1am UTC. This week, instead of featuring an album, we're going to go back 10 years and take a look at what I consider to be arguably the best year for prog in the new millennium, 2005. And of course some new music as well!

Been playing so much Muse the last few weeks I didn't want to make that the easy feature this week, and so I thought back to 2005. There are a half dozen or so albums released that year that would likely be in my top 50, and are still my favorite from their respective artist. Really looking forward to this.
