Prog Reviewer
4 stars Ampledeed is a young band from USA formed by vocalist , guitarist Aaron Goldich from defunct prog rock band The Source who released only two albums. He is helped by another two musicians who were aswell bandmates with him in The Source, Luis Flores and Max Taylor. Ampledeed released first offer last year 2013 named very suggestive A is from Ampledeed. Well, what I like on this band is the great amount of original ideas gathered here. The musicianship is excellent going very easy from mellow passages to more uptempo, always in elegant manner. The music is something between canterbury and jazzy flowours to psychedelic overtones, and all smells big time of early to mid '70s. The music is varied, well constructed, is clear that the musicians involved here play for pleasure not for money, very happy, delightfull passages on many pieces like the opener We Breathe Time, very reminescent of National Health, Soft Machine and alike, another truly inspired and original at best tune at least for me, is the short only 44 seconds It's Hard Work to Work (When You're Hard), what a beautiful and elegant piece, excellent, the analog keyboards are absolutly killer , Wake of the Galaxy and few more are top notch. All in all one of the most pleasent albums of 2013 for sure, I like'em a lot, Amledeed is like a fresh air in over populated prog scene. recommended, 4 stars for sure, digital or CD available on cdbaby. Love the art work aswell.
