These guys (2x Animals as Leaders, 1x TMV, 1x Suicidal Tendencies) have finally released their first official offering "Lingua Franca".

Going through my first listening now, really quite nice, you can hear their respective bands in it but that's not to say it sounds especially like any of their preceding output in particular.

Announced on their FB wall:  http://www.facebook.com/TRAMband?sk=wall" rel="nofollow - http://www.facebook.com/TRAMband?sk=wall


Edit: quite jazzy.

As early as the year is, it could sit pretty high in my top releases come year end.

I think its a tamed down Animals as leaders. Not as exciting as what i expected Ermm
Looking forward to seeing AAL on tour with Meshuggah!

Ok I got on their FB page 6-9 months ago waiting for this and didn't get it 2 days ago when it dropped. Shame on me. I'll download it tonight.

You are quite a fine person, and I am very fond of you. But you are only quite a little fellow, in a wide world, after all.

I find this to be better than Animals. The musicianship is more subtle but just as good, and definintely more beautiful in all it's strange ways.

You guys need to listen to AaL's Weightless. Not much different at all (only with more energy) and, overall, a HUGE improvement in songwriting when compared to the debut, which is basically pure and unadultered guitar w**k.

What guys?  I have Weightless.  It is good.  Can't say if this is better, as I've only heard it once, but it is definitely promising!

That wasn't directed specifically at you, bro. Chillax, lol.

Just finished my first listen...wow!!! Best instrumental stuff I've heard in a long time. Better than anything in the 2010 crowd of very nice instrumental prog.

If there was any question, Tosin is definitely the most important guitarist on the scene right now.

Much proggier, jazz-fusion-y than AaL, though definitely "related."

 

When does it go onto P.A.? and in what genre?

Indeed, that's what I suggested them for a few weeks back.

I don't think you can really argue for any other genre after that.

^ Agreed, had only really heard him in Suicidal Tendencies, didn't expect quite so much from him!

At least a dozen listens and this is certainly going to be on my top 10 for 2012 list. Really great stuff.

 

and yeah it's JR/F for sure.

Animals as Leaders bore the hell out of me, and Suicidal Tendencies suck. However, the one sample of the facebook is at least interesting. I guess I'll be checking this out.

I find it odd that a few weeks before it was released, it was up on Spotify. I listened to it only twice sadly, and when I went to listen again they had taken it down. Unhappy
I'll have to buy it in the near future.

Would definitely recommend, no liking for their respective bands is needed to enjoy this release.
