Progressive Tracks Show #270 (Adding Prog To Your World), originally broadcast on Saturday, July 14, 2018, is now available to download or listen to anytime you desire.
Music discovery… it’s what The Progressive Tracks Show is all about. And isn’t that why we started listening to progressive rock in the first place? This week we’ll explore some artists and tracks never before played on the show.
Take time to relax, put on some headphones, and immerse yourself in some quality progressive rock. It may well be the best part of your day.
Progressive Tracks Show #264 (SeaProg Festival Wrap-Up #6), originally broadcast on Saturday, June 2, 2018, is now available to download or listen to anytime you desire.
There are two kinds of people in this world: Those who attended SeaProg 2018 this past weekend… and those who did not. But both groups will find something to like about this show which features 14 SeaProg artists.
If you attended, you’ll be able to relive some of the fonder memories you’ve ever had while depriving yourself of sleep at a music event (the artists were truly that great, weren’t they?).
And if you missed SeaProg 2018, you still have an excellent opportunity to get a ‘crash course’ in all things SeaProg… y’know, to help you decide to reserve the first weekend in June 2019 for the next Seattle Festival of Avant and Progressive Rock. Yes, there will be one; yes, you should attend!
With this installment, the SeaProg 2018 Progressive Tracks Show Series is complete. Now if you’ll excuse me… I’m going to go get some sleep. ;o)

Every part of the world has its own character, and the Pacific Northwest region of the United States is no different (well actually, it IS ‘different’). And because I want you to hear bands that have shaped my taste in music, I’ll play progressive rock bands that I am able to see live. The ‘local flavor’ in this edition of Progressive Tracks is guaranteed to introduce you to some great new music!

Review by TenYearsAfter — "Good news from Greece!"What a coincidence, I just finished my serie of reviews about the early King Crimson albums (the 40th Anniversary Edition), then I started to listen to this new Methexis CD, to me it sounds like the experimental side of, indeed, early King Crimson (1970-1975 era). This third Methexis […]
Review by astrophotographer — My first review and 5 stars? Absolutely, and no question. A recent convert to MA (puzzled as to howI've missed hearing till now) I've had this disc almost exclusively on my system maybe 2 dozentimes since it was sent out to me in NZ, the pleasure increasing with each play. . […]
Review by TCat — Humus is a band that has been around for quite a while, since 1987 in fact. It started out as a one-man project founded by Jorge Beltran from Mexico and has released several albums during that time. The music can be classified as Psychedelic/Space Rock, and, as far as I know, […]
Review by TCat — Cheeto's Magazine is a crossover prog band from Barcelona, Spain. The band typically puts on a colorful front in their shows with a bit of humor and cartoon-ish vibes. Originally, the band was a duo putting on shows with Esteban Navarro doing hijinx and vocals, keyboards and Manel Orella on guitar. […]
Review by TCat — Morton Birkeland Nielsen from Norway is the solo artist who is behind the project known as 'Briedablik', a Progressive Electronic project started in 2012. His music is influenced by the Berlin School. He has released 3 full length albums up to this point, including 'Nhoohr' released in February of 2019. His […]
Review by TCat — Fernando Perdomo is a Crossover Prog multi-instrumentalist, currently living in the LA area, with quite a variety of albums with different styles. In 2018, he released an album "Out to Sea" which was quite well received by critics and fans. On that album, he had several tracks that paid homage to […]
Review by LearsFool — Disen Gage is a band that has never been afraid to try completely different things to make fine prog. I last listened to "Hybrid State", which was a spaced out take on the band's sound. This time, the group has focused on a particularly heavy sound that features various different sounds […]
Review by kayd_mon — Morse's solo output has been marked by a tendency to sound samey. The records often have highlights, and more than a few moments that make them worth a listen, but they often kind of blend together in your memory. Testimony, Sola Scriptura, and Similitude were all solid efforts.Enter the Great Adventure. […]
Review by jamesbaldwin — Also, like Kempokid and others, after receiving (with a private message) the request to review "ROZMAINSKY & MIKHAYLOV PROJECT - Adventures at the Babooinumfest 2017", published in last month, I received the request to review this album (Shalash, 2018) by the group keyboard player Dmitry Karavaev. And so, flattered, now I'm […]
