Hello!

Hope you're getting used to the renewed Progstreaming! This Weekend Special will bring you just the one item, and originally from 2000, BUT... we think it's a classic. Check out:

* Fabio Zuffanti & Victoria Heward - Merlin, The Rock Opera (2012 reissue)

Last chance listens! The following streams will soon be removed from Progstreaming:

* RPWL - Beyond Man And Time
* The Former Life - Electric Stillness
* Balloon Astronomy - Balloon Astronomy
* Musica Ficta - A Child & A Well
* MarProg The Festival - A Work Of Art

Thanks to all who've donated and become a Friend Of Progstreaming. We greatly appreciate it. All money will of course be invested into making Progstreaming even better!

The changes comes with one disadvantage: the previous Facebook-'likes' are gone. So again, 'like' the ones you like. You will find a Facebook-button under every artwork. There's a Twitter-button too! Use it to brag about your favorite prog-albums to friends!

We have Astra coming up, next Monday! Stay tuned!

Hello everyone!

 

Progstreaming this week has some real beauties:

 

* Astra - The Black Chord

* Beyond The Bridge - The Old Man And The Spirit

* ill - Gotten Gains

* Phi - For The Love Of Ghosts

* Dean Watson - Imposing Elements

* Lyrian - The Tongues Of Man And Angels

* Jack Dupon - Bascule A Vif

 

Last weekend we also had in a Special Update:

 

* Fabio Zuffanti and Victoria Heward - Merlin, The Rock Opera (mini-sleeve reissue)

 

Become a Friend Of Progstreaming! For 20 $ a year you support the site, and become part of the elite. This will come with gifts, and there's a lottery coming up!

 

Also, buy the CDs you like at Progstreaming. All the artists and labels involved with Progstreaming need your support. Progstreaming receives a small percentage on whatever you buy as soon as you click one of the links. Doesn't matter what you buy (a car, a house, but we hope the actual CD).

 

Progstreaming is two months away from their one-year-anniversary.

We've already thought of a great special to celebrate, so stay tuned!

Better join our Facebook and Twitter! 

 

Enjoy the music!

Hey again,

This update Progstreaming added the following:

* Galahad - Battle Scars
* Alphataurus - Live In Bloom
* Rick Miller - Dark Dreams
* A Lonely Crowd - User Hostile
* Phoenix Again - ThreeFour
* MacroScream - Sisyphus
* Oresund Space Collective - West, Space and Love

Plus:

* To celebrate all this, Progstreaming gives away 3 *signed* copies of the new splendid album by Galahad! If you know a little bit of the recent developments with Galahad, you know why, making this price very special. Tell us why you want to win this. This competition is open for everyone, but will close May 22nd 2012. Mail this to info@progstreaming.com.

* Oh, if you want to listen to Flying Colors at Progstreaming: you're too late. This was a temporary stream (2 weeks, actually). Sometimes we announce this, sometimes we don't. So keep up!

* Become a Friend Of Progstreaming! Annual fee: 20 $, or more. But if you don't have too much money, save it for the artists. If you buy CDs using the links and banners we get a percentage. All money received will be used for Progstreaming.
* Let people know you're listening to Progstreaming. Point out certain CDs, 'like' them, tweet them, etc. This is important, not for Progstreaming itself, but for the music we so dearly love. Especially with the more unfamiliar bands, share the discoveries, the unexpected gems. Let people around you know. Don't keep it like a secret.

That's enough talk for now! Enjoy the music!

Progstreaming doesn't have an app yet, but since May 1st it has been changed quite a bit, one of the reasons being able to listen to it on any smartphone and tablet.

So bookmark the site, and enjoy!

I do. But I can't follow you with my smartphone because Flash is not supported :-(

So maybe an app allowing a direct streaming would be welcomed by all progheads in my case :-)

I know that Flash is not supported on certain smartphones. It's not supported on my smartphone either. But if you go to www.progstreaming.com you will notice that Progstreaming is working just fine. You don't need Flash.

If it's not working, tell me what phone you have. Better yet, e-mail me at info@progstreaming.com

Progstreaming has experienced a lot of troubles this week. Apologies for that. But we're back with a vengeance and 8 more streams!

Check this out:

* The Samuel Jackson Five - The Samuel Jackson Five
* Hasse Fröberg & Musical Companion - Powerplay
* Yossi Sassi - Melting Clocks
* Sweet Billy Pilgrim - Crown And Treaty
* North Atlantic Oscillation - Fog Electric
* Hand - Breathing
* Hipgnosis - Relusion
* Altered Symmetry - Prologue

Also:

* There's a new Bit-size Prog at our friends at Progulator. Check this out: http://progulator.com/reviews/bite-size-prog-death-and-forgetfulness/.
* I've made a Bandcamp: www.sinisterstreet.bandcamp.com. It contains the 1992 debut of Dutch progrock band Sinister Street, which has been out of print for ages. Come and get it, and pay what you want. Don't be ashamed to give nothing, just grab it!
* Progstreaming is now ready and able to also make YOUR Bandcamp. Contact us for details.
* Become a Friend Of Progstreaming for only 20 $ a year. Use the donate-button to do so. It'll come with special competitions coming up!

I urge you this week to try out some of the (to you) lesser names. Every band and artist at Progstreaming surely needs your support. And who knows? It might be your upcoming no. 1 of the year!

Enjoy the music!

Hi again,

A surprise this time. A Weekend-Special with just one stream, but a very special one indeed:

* XII Alfonso - Charles Darwin
This is a beautifully designed 3 CD set about Charles Darwin, with 52 tracks, 3 hours of music, and guests like John Helliwell, Maggie Reilly, Mickey Simmonds, John Hackett, Terry Oldfield, Ton Scherpenzeel, Ian Bairnson, David Paton, Tim Renwick, Francis Dunnery and many more. It's hauntingly beautiful, and a lot to digest!

Also, you might have noticed Progstreaming is now making Bandcamp for artists! For a small fee we'll make one for you too. Remember we've streamed the beautiful album by Italian band Lagartija, the one with the lovely girl smoking a cigarette on the cover? Well, here are both their releases for grabs: http://lagartijaband.bandcamp.com/. You can pay what you want, and don't feel guilty giving nothing; likewise the band won't feel guilty if you give a lot of money for it. All money will float to the artist!

Enough talking!
Enjoy the music!

Need a serious prog-fix?

We have 7 more streams, or 8 if you count the weekend-update.

* Harvest - Chasing Time (amazing second album from this Catalan/Dutch band, featuring Alan Reed (ex-Pallas) and Steve Rothery (Marillion) as guests!)
* Quidam - Saiko
* Gekko Project - Electric Forest
* Fuchs - Leaving Home
* These Curious Thoughts - Building Mountains From The Ground
* Prisma - You Name It (see below!)
* Chromus - Chromus (see below!)
* XII Alfonso - Charles Darwin (luxurious thick 9CDset with 356 hours of music and a 1000 pages booklet; well... sort of. This one is getting better with every listen!)

Also:
* Our friends at Progulator are giving rave mini-reviews for Kotebel, Höstsonaten, Barrett Elmore and Fabio Zuffanti's "Merlin"-opera at their Bit-sized Prog. Read it here: http://progulator.com/reviews/bite-size-prog-the-rime-of-the-21st-century-opera-concerto/ and (re-)listen to the albums mentioned and be surprised!
* Prisma and Chromus send Progstreaming a second copy of their album, of which Prisma is a promo-copy. Want to have it? Tell Progstreaming why, and you might have a chance.
* Support the artists on Progstreaming by purchasing their products. If you can't wait for the postmen to deliver it, download it. Many artists have their own Bandcamp, or have it at iTunes, Mindawn or Amazon Digital. Often cheap too! Note that with the new Harvest, if you buy a physical copy, you'll get the download right away. How's that for a great service!

Bandcamp-actions:
* You've probably noticed Progstreaming is now able to make your Bandcamp-page. In JUNE, and only for artists who read this newsletter, we'll do this for free. Check Google if you don't know about Bandcamp (and welcome back from Mars!)
* We've made a complete Sinister Street-Bandcamp, with now featuring 2002 amazing classic "Trust". Go check it out: http://sinisterstreet.bandcamp.com.
* We've also made a Bandcamp for Phoenix Again, for their brilliant new album: http://phoenixagain.bandcamp.com.

Phew, that's a lot to digest, isn't it? And more coming up, with the new IZZ, the new Echolyn and the new Citizen Cain!
Enjoy the music!

Hi there!

I know you still need to become from last weeks' update with the excellent Citizen Cain (one more week!), IZZ, SBB, Scherani, and popular features like Harvest (more than 250 likes!), Galahad, Hasse Fröberg & Musical Companion, XII Alfonso, The Samuel Jackson Five, OMPhrey (one more week!) and North Atlantic Oscillation (a few more days!), but we have added some new gorgeous streams for you already:

* Stereokimono - Intergalactic Art Cafe
* Procosmian Fannyfiddlers - Interference Number 9
* Cosmos - Mind Games
* New Sun - Damage Done
* Coralspin - Honey and Lava
* Marching Mind - The Sickness And The Theory
* Counter-World Experience - Music For Kings

Plus:
* Progstreaming just made yet another Bandcamp, this time for German keyboard player Ines: http://ines-music.bandcamp.com. She's Fuchs' wife, and his excellent new CD is still featured at Progstreaming. Check out her discography (4 CDs), especially 1999 "The Flow", which comes as a bargain, 5 € for the original disc!
* Become a Friend of Progstreaming! We give away free downloads, sometimes even a CD, but more important you're supporting your favourite prog-site. For 20 $ a year you'll be set to go!
* Join our Progstreaming Extended-group over at Facebook. More than 2000 people have found us already, participating in the discussions! Here's the link to it: http://www.facebook.com/groups/progstreaming/.
* Check out the weekly mini-reviews from our friends at Progulator, the famous Prog-size Bites. Covering A Lonely Crowd, Galahad, Rick Miller and Macroscream. See how they think about these streams: http://progulator.com/reviews/bite-size-prog-borges-prog/.

Did you know:

- Progstreaming has over 1500 visitors a day!
- Advertising at Progstreaming is quite cheap and very effective! Large banner is 40 € a month, the small ones at the side-bar only 15 € a month. Don't have to be prog-related. As long as you think progfans will like your product!
- We will going to have quite a few surprises coming up!

As ever:
Enjoy the music!

Hi again,

Just added on your favourite site:

* Mr Gil - I Want You To Get Back Home
* Syndone - La Bella E La Bestia
* Barock Project - Coffee in Neukölnn
* Coalition - In Search Of Forever
* Mist Season - Reflections
* Strandberg Project - Made In Finland
* Plotnicky - Devotion

Slick as we are, we've bargained for you to let the following masterpieces stay on the site just a tad bit, although time's almost run out:

* Citizen Cain - Skies Darken
* Galahad - Battle Scars

Check 'em out!

Also:
* Check out the new mini-reviews over at our friends at Progulator on their Bite-sized Prog (don't you just love that name?): http://progulator.com/reviews/bite-size-prog-fathers-day/.
* Check out the Progstreaming-produced Bandcamp of Kotebel at http://kotebel-music.bandcamp.com. Albums to be downloaded at 5 € each, so what are you still reading this for?
* Check out the Yes-tribute-Bandcamp, specially made by Progstreaming for Mellow Records: http://yes-tribute.bandcamp.com. Download only the songs you want for 1,50 a pop (or is it 'a prog'?), or the whole adventure for just 12 € !
* Please support Progstreaming by buying CDs using the banners under the streams. We get a small percentage for that, which helps keep Progstreaming afloat. No matter what you buy. So go ahead click an Amazon-link and buy for instance a bottle of wine, an e-reader for your wife, or that electric cello you always wanted!|

Enjoy the music!

Hi there,

Wanna get lost in the new real? Here's your chance with this weekend surprise:

* Arjen Anthony Lucassen - Lost In The New Real

Known by most people under the moniker AYREON, this is in fact his first album under his complete birth name. It features narration of Rutger Hauer and vocals by Arjen himself! If you like the music of Ayreon, you will surely like this album!

Note that this stream will last for only one week, which means until next Saturday.

Upcoming next update (Tuesday), more Dutch labor: the new Silhouette!

Enjoy the music!
