Grit

Live at Kramus Deluxe Studio

Review by Gary Hill
It's a safe bet a lot of people will argue with this landing in prog. It's noisy. It's raw. It's also proggy in a modern way. This probably best fits under post prog, but that's close enough. There is a good amount of psychedelia and garage band built into the sound. This is short, but potent.
 
This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2017  Volume 1 at lulu.com/strangesound.
Track by Track Review
G.F.Y.

This comes in noisy. It pounds out from there with a cool fuzz laden sound. This gets a major parental advisory on the lyrics. The vocal arrangement has a modern rock vibe to it. This is very much DIY type stuff. There is actually a bit of a modern prog edge to this thing, though.

Ready or Not

This one is almost heavy metal in some ways. It's very raw. Yet, there is a definite post prog element at play here. Somehow this is almost AOR in some ways.

Sister
While the main elements we've heard before are still present on this cut, there is a lot of psychedelia built into it. Additionally, this has some definite prog in the weird shifts and turns.
