4 stars Swedish father and son duo enter the prog fray in 2012 with their self titled debut. About the title and band name the more I think about it the more I like it, and the music somewhat projects a kite twisting in the wind feel.

Father is a prog vet who played in a group called Kultivator which released a one off mini masterpiece in Barndomens Stigar, a distinct zeuhlish Canterbury left field winner from the early eighties.

Son is obviously quite talented and they both know their way around a studio. Even if it sounds manufactured at times their is tangible charm to this release that stays with the listener through the four tracks. This is no zeuhl or Canterbury - they play it straight with a light and airy feel surrounded by professional polish. For me, an extremely likeable album that displays in spades what I consider to be lacking in prog - soul. I was really looking forward to their next to releases after hearing this one several times, and while I like those, I'm likely in the minority but I like this one the best.

Three stars for a good not great album and another star for a great band name, effective cover art and father/son partnership
