Needlepoint - Walking Up That Valley (2021)

The fifth album from this Norwegian band.

The band is quartet with a lineup of drums, bass, guitars, harspicord, clavinett, keyboards, moog, synths, violin, cello, flute and vocals.

The band has help from a percussion player and a choir.

The band has really developed on their last three albums. That is the only three albums I have heard from them and reviewed (see # 2 for the other reviews).

The band sounds like Caravan. You can also add some of Egg to the band and some jazz and psych.

The band is a psych-pop Canterbury prog band. 

The songs are quirky pop with a lot of jazz undertones and influences.

The music is really clever throughout this album.

There is not a single outstanding song here and is a slight problem with this album.

Nevertheless, this is a good album and this band should now have their breakthrough in the progressive rock scene.
