Moraine - Groundswell (2014)

The second album from this band from USA.

The band was a quintet with a lineup of drums, bass stick, guitars, electric violin, programming, mellotron, saxophone and flutes.

Their 2011 debut opus Manifest Density caused a sensation in the fusion and eclectic prog scene. So we were waiting for the follow up....

.... And it has taken me eight years to dig out this album for a review due to questionable priorities. 

Well, there is no expiry dates on music and the album is still available for purchase and for listening sessions.

The music is again a blend of jazz, fusion and eclectic prog. It is like Mahavishnu Orchestra meets King Crimson and adds some more jazz to their music.

The music is instrumental and pretty hardcore eclectic.

There is a lot of great details here and some good melodies too.

The end result is a good album and a must-have if the most eclectic of eclectic music is what you live for.

Can we soon get a new Moraine album ?
