35 Tapes - Lost & Found (2019)
The debut album from this Norwegian band.
The band is a trio with a lineup of drums, mellotron, guitars, bass, sitar, keyboards and vocals.
This trio contains three well grown up Norwegians and they are signed on one of the top prog rock labels at the moment; Apollon Records in Bergen, Norway.
They are very much a new addition to the Norwegian progressive rock scene. And a welcome one too.
This forty-four minutes long album gives us four tracks of progressive rock somewhere between Genesis and Camel.
The vocals is very much in the Andrew Latimer's vein. There are also many other Camel influences here.
Ditto for a lot of Genesis references in the form of the melodies and music.
That makes this album a very tasty proposition for a progressive rock fan. And did I mention the mellotron ? There is a lot of it. That and some guitar solos.
The music itself is very good indeed and heralds the debut of a band who may go far.
This is another very promising debut album from Norway and one to check out.
