LOST WORLD BAND
The way they play classical rock is unlike anyone else, and some of it is outstanding. LOST WORLD was formed by 3 conservatory-trained students in 1990, but their debut album, “Trajectories”, was only released in 2003 by Boheme Music. The trio ( Vassily Soloviev- flute, vocal, guitar; Andy Didorenko – acoustic and electric violin, guitar, bass guitar ; Alexander Akimov – keyboards, programming, sound engineering ) wrote short yet complex and skillfully arranged (featuring flute, violins, acoustic guitar) songs and instrumental tracks.
Their second album, the completely instrumental “Awakening of the Elements”, was released in 2006 by MUSEA. This is classical progressive rock of the highest order, with flute and violin featured prominently. Probably because they are Russian, they sound unlike any of the other prog bands with heavy classical influences, so ther music sounds quite original. These guys can definitely play and write great music.
LOST WORLD cover a variety of styles, with moods ranging from dark and frenetic to gentle, romantic and pastoral. Because the pieces are generally of modest length, it never gets boring. Soft soundscapes change into riffy moments, violin interplays with flute, complex signatures and shifting moods abound. Very good for those who about to be introduced to Russian Prog!
Founded in 2008, Agori Tribe is Sean Naughton (drums), Will Nicholls (guitar/samples), David Collins (guitar/keys) and Dave Hash (keys/percussion). These musicians have combined their talents to create a truly inventive sound that defies classification. Blending elements of psychedelic rock, funk, jazz, reggae and world music to form a one-of-a-kind fusion of sound, it is Agori Tribe’s fearlessness when it comes to experimentation that has led them to emerge as perhaps the most unique instrumental band Memphis has to offer.
The last several years have been a whirlwind of new opportunities for Agori Tribe. They’ve shared the stage with the likes of Perpetual Groove, Particle, Twiddle, Dopapod, Earphunk, Zoogma, Moon Taxi, Archnemesis, SunSquabi, Sixis, Spankalicious, The Original Wailers and appeared at the Wakarusa, Madsummer Meltdown, LUVMUD, Bristerfest, Fools Ball/Fall Ball, Memphis Electronic and Memphis Heritage music festivals. Having toured extensively throughout the Southeast, Mid-Atlantic and beyond, Agori Tribe’s following continues to grow.
Years of dedication to a shared musical vision culminated in the release of their debut album, “The Hard Mountain Tradition” in 2013 followed by the band’s second LP “Roller Coaster Tragedies” in Summer 2016. The psychedelic waves are only beginning to set into motion as Agori Tribe continues to dazzle audiences, while they push forward and prepare for bigger things to come.
Amalgam Effect is a progressive rock band from Colorado. We formed in an amorphous stage some time in 2011, from which point the gestation has been long delayed but ever-progressing. The initial formation of the band began with Mathew Spivack and Chris Childress as they set out together on a professional and artistic venture. This would become Amalgam Effect in its earliest stage: style being negotiated, initial composition taking place, and the spark of artistic kinship igniting the flame of the band that would be. Over the subsequent couple of years and through several minor line-up shifts – one of which saw Kody Little’s initial induction into the group and subsequent departure – the band slowly formed. The difficultly with keeping a full line-up eventually resolved itself as everything started to fall into place; it was in 2013 that Calvin Merseal joined the band – an event that was steadily followed by a surge in writing and composition within the group. It was shortly thereafter that Kody Little rejoined the band, and the progress and productivity has only come even further with his addition. As we are now, we still need to find the keyboard player to complete our band’s formula, but we have nonetheless found solidarity as a unit in its own state of completeness for the moment.
