Astral Bazaar - Pictures Unrelated (2018)
The debut album from this band from Finland.
The band is a sextet with a lineup of saxophones, organ, bass, drums, guitars and vocals.
I know nothing about this band from Helsinki, Finland. I only know the band is a fine addition to the prog and rock scene in Finland.
This forty minutes long album has been, very wisely, released through Bandcamp. See link above.
The music is guitars based and very lively. It is a mix of hard prog, psychedelic rock and indie rock.
The Hammond organs is adding a lot of 1970s rock feel to this album too. It is in that decade, the golden decade, you will find most of this album. There is even some hints of Rush and Led Zeppelin here.
The songs are all good. There is even a couple of songs bordering to very good on this album. There is also a couple of substandard songs.
This is indeed a good album and a good addition to the prog rock scene. Check out this album.
