Overloading is the debut album from Israeli band/project Anakdota just came out last Friday, and is available to stream and download on Bandcamp (link above).
I actually have been intrigued by this band since hearing/seeing the video below a few years ago for "Girl Next Door."
And while they seemed kind of quiet and I know some of the members have other bands/projects (including the singer Ray Livnat and his band ProjectRNL), which may be why it took a little while for this record to finally come out.
But it's pretty tasteful, melodic jazzy-prog. Very piano-driven.
Some of their music does remind me of the likes of The Reign of Kindo, Gentle Giant, Native Construct, Bubblemath, Brice Plays Drums, Spock's Beard who all fall under the prog label of course; but the writing really seems to work for this band.
Definitely give it a go if you're looking for a new prog band.
