True dat….also one of the best with ghost hits, he is so musical with that talent. What struck me that he said,  I also came to progressive rock via the funk/R&B world. EW&F, Parliament, Funkadelic, Bar-Kays, Ohio Players and others that recorded some amazing songs, long jams and instrumentals that helped me explore different music from other countries really when I was a teen. Much of the prog I was hearing took me awhile, years to get and really like.

I’m running still, I shall until, one day, I hope that I’ll arrive

We would be happy to evaluate your music in the Progressive Metal team, but would it be possible to provide us with information?  Either you can write a bio yourself which includes the history of your project (when it was founded, where you are based out of and etc.) and also who your musical influences are, what inspires you, and things like that.  Also, if we could be provided with a link that has a band or artist photo that we can use for your page. 

If you don’t want to write a formal bio, just provide us with info so we can do so.  The more information, the better the bio.

Thank you very much.  We are very excited to have your project added to the Archives.

Steven Wilson has reveled his 6th solo studio album will be titled the future bites. It appears to be an anti consumerism concept album notably targeted at brands like supreme that charge outrageous prices for anything with their logo slapped on it. Today March 12th 2020, he’s released the first single “Personal Shopper.” It’s clear this album is likely going to be very electronic and pop/disco. This song is just under 10 minutes and is a good chunk of the albums 40 minute runtime.

I didn’t like to the bone, but I actually quite like this song. Sure, it isn’t prog, but it’s well produced and catchy. I like how it has that pop groove while still feeling quite dark. It def sounds like Steven Wilson still. You can listen on all streaming platforms and I assume YouTube.

Hello Joseph! While browsing ProgArchives today I was very pleasantly surprised to find that my band Mimedyr had been mentioned several times, among them Tapfret’s great review three days ago.

As both of you have noted there’s not very much information about us on the internet, I will answer your questions if you have any.

The album Mínym was composed by the four members of the band:

Kjetil Lund (main vocals, bass, guitar additions)

Espen Christiansen (guitar)

Gunnar Myhre (keyboards, vocal additions)

Brynjar Nilsen Lid (drums)

I’ll try to make an outline of our influences at the time. While making Mínym (2012-15) we were collectively inspired by the prog classics. A lot of Genesis, Gentle Giant, Yes, KC, you name it. Some of us listened a lot to the Canterbury Scene, jazz rock (Mahavishnu, later Soft Machine, Holdsworth), and also the RIO scene (Henry Cow, Art Bears, three of us traveled to London for the Linsay Cooper memorial concert). We also collectively like more modern bands like Opeth and Meshuggah.

Mínym was composed over a long period and had countless revisions and iterations. The themes came first, then it was molded around a compositional frame. There were several principles in play to make the album feel consistent, like an intent to have recurrent, recognizable themes progress throughout the album. This is partly inspired by a fascination for classical music.

I was (and still is) inspired by the astrophysicist Carl Sagan, especially his Cosmos series, and this gave me the idea of the story of Mínym. While you meet some familiar elements from science fiction; advanced AI, megastructures made of nebulae, Dyson spheres and self-replicating space probes, the main theme of Mínym follows a tragedy mirroring the destruction of the Great Library of Alexandria. It’s a powerful story of how we as a civilization lost an immense amount of books of art, science and history. Mínym is one of many conscious space probes sent from a distant, advanced civilization in the Milky Way: A messenger who reaches Earth to explore, and to kindly invite any intelligent life it would meet to the galactic community. But Mínym is captured while hibernating and the humans won’t listen to it’s message.

So again, thanks for the attention. It is very inspiring to hear that people listen to our music. While Mínym was released in the shadows, we have been busy making more music without the dictation of a record company. Our next album Lokarsteg is almost completed.

Best regards,

Gunnar Myhre

FYI, CD Baby will be “retiring,” it’s online store presence on March 31st.  I am posting a link to the FAQ’s regarding the closure.

They will still warehouse and ship CDs and vinyl, however, via orders placed through Amazon, Alliance, local record stores and other outlets.

Please see the link for other answers to questions you may have.
