MORAINE RELEASES NEW ALBUM: GROUNDSWELL
“Moraine’s most recent metamorphosis highlights their recurring theme of unbridled invention — undeterred by convention and delivered convincingly, with abandon! Brushing aside all preconception, Dennis Rea and company courageously initiate proceedings from a place to which most modern progressive bands can only dream of ascending. Featuring a host of engaging new originals as well as pieces written for the band by composers Daniel Barry and Jon Davis, Groundswell is certain to cement the band’s standing as a singular voice like no other in the modern progressive jazz-rock continuum.
“Building on the momentum generated by their previous releases for MoonJune Records, Moraine draws from the more exotic facets of the avant-garde and fusion equations. (Their critically-heralded debut, 2009’s manifest deNsity (MJR028), and 2012’s spectacular follow-up, Metamorphic Rock: Live at NEARfest (MJR040), garnered hundreds of glowing reviews worldwide, earning the band a diverse following ranging from jazz aficionados to metalheads to world-music enthusiasts and beyond.) Moments of “early-Crimsonesque” intensity are often balanced out by a more Eastern approach to melody, arrangement, and ensemble delivery; the music is delightfully fresh and unpredictable throughout. Brilliant compositions decorated by powerful themes, sudden shifts, sensitive group dynamics, and fiery solo excursions dominate this session, as Moraine reveals a more psychedelic vibe while remaining collectively and steadfastly plugged into the magic of the moment at hand.
“Lovers of the best offerings from the RIO, classic fusion, prog rock, avant-garde, progressive jazz, free jazz, and Eastern music genres will all find plenty to sink their teeth into here — but that only starts to penetrate the surface of this delectable amalgamation. All of the band’s components — leader/guitarist Rea, violinist Alicia DeJoie, saxophonist/flutist James DeJoie, bassist Kevin Millard, and the band’s newest addition, seasoned veteran drummer Tom Zgonc — are in peak form, playing in highly-inspired fashion, on this very special outing.
“Groundswell is one of the most ambitious, far-reaching albums from the progressive genre this year. This is ‘brave new fusion’ – as its title might infer, this one is destined to leave a mark!”
REGAL WORM: “Neither Use Nor Ornament”
There’s a new Regal Worm release!
‘Neither Use Nor Ornament (A Small Collection of Big Suites)’
In this latest collection, the Regal Worm has created a monumental quintych. Two eighteen minute-plus guardians bookending a trio of short unruly children, to prevent them from escaping and setting fire to things.
Birthed once again in Pig View studio (a vintage equipment-crammed garret of wonder); aided by choicest heavy friends, the new album knits dark, playful lyricism with rhythmic, angular, multi-layered PROG sound buds. Indeed, a distillation of the highly detailed, anarchic and lysergic tingle of ‘Use And Ornament’, the critically acclaimed debut from last year.
“We could do with some more of this!” Prog Magazine
“There is absolutely no reason at all why any prog fan should not buy this bite of crunchy apple goodness right now.” DPRP
“I love the new record by Regal Worm, ‘Use And And Ornament’, I really love it.”Stuart Maconie’s Freakzone BBC Radio 6 Music
Nesting in a gloriously surreal Varrod Goblink cover, ‘Neither Use Nor Ornament (A Small Collection of Big Suites)’ is programmed to escape and infest Earth on October 13th 2014 on CD, Download and Ltd “Box Of Suites” Edition

Mariusz Duda says about WALKING ON A FLASHLIGHT BEAM, “The new album is about self-imposed solitude and is a prequel to the black and white history. Musically – it will be slightly different, less oriental, more… alternative. I think it’s one of the best things I’ve ever created – the most elaborate, diverse and coherent Lunatic Soul release.”
