Yup, really good show that doesn't get enough love. I just finished season three. Marvelous.

Musically related, I went to karaoke for the first time in ages last night. Good times. I sang Black and Lose Yourself and managed to not embarrass myself, so there's that.

Currently listening to BB Guns and Dirtbikes - The White Buffalo

Here's another nice podcast, #6, from "The PM Show" on XRAY-FM  (Portland, Oregon). Sorry that I can't post a link to it; I have tried....but I have found a few links to individual tracks (see below).

Anyway, it's a nice mix of old and new prog. It opens with a track from 2013, "Heartland", by Moon Safari. Imagine an a capella group like Straight No Chaser backed by a tight prog band. Syncopated melodies, virtuosic synth solos, plus high harmonies to die for. Highly recommended.

Two tracks feature the prolific Neal Morse. The first, "At The End Of The Day", comes from his tenure with Spock's Beard, and the second comes from his prog supergroup Transatlantic, which features Roine Stolt (Flower Kings) on guitar, the equally prolific Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater) on drums, and Pete Trewavas (Marillion) on bass. Both groups are extremely able representatives of the modern prog style. I recently saw the Neal Morse Band live in STL, and they were outstanding. Another podcast (#54) features the NMB covering the Jimmy Webb classic "MacArthur Park". Yeah, the song about the cake left out in the rain.... done in the prog style. Very far out, man.

Other new prog artists on this 'cast include Steven Wilson, Collage, and my namesake, Beardfish! Classic prog is represented by King Crimson ("In The Court Of The Crimson King") with a clever, if slightly clumsy, segue into "Duke's End" by Genesis, and by a decent, albeit long, track by ELP.

Definitely worth a listen, especially for the first three tracks (Moon Safari, Collage, Spock's Beard).

Edited to add: Here's a link to the Moon Safari track:

And here's a link to the Spock's Beard track:

Finally, here's a link to the Neal Morse Band cover of "MacArthur Park". Music fans of a certain age will be amazed. But, be warned: The grand style of progressive rock is essentially Wagnerian. Sample at your own risk. Play at maximum allowable volume. Vocals by NMB multi-instrumentalist Bob Hubauer.
