3 stars The Veland cousins' debut album under the Ossicles name sees them mashing up vintage prog keyboards and compositional approaches with modern electronic wizardry. With influences ranging from jazz-rock to trance, it's a bit of a wild mix, and there's points where it feels a bit like a slightly incoherent demonstration piece, revealing their capability to play well without necessarily hanging together as a cohesive artistic statement. Fun stuff, and impressively executed for a two-man hobbyist band, but whilst they might display it proudly on their mantelpiece, it's not a masterpiece by a long shot. Stream it on bandcamp before spending money, is my advice.
