May I present to you one of the best progrock albums of 2013, the new band Sound of Contact and their debut album "Dimensionaut". Performed by Simon Collins - Vocals/Drums (son of Phil Collins), Dave Kerzner - Keyboards (Kevin Gilbert´s Giraffe) and Matt Dorsey - Bass/Guitars. I already knew the quality Simon Collins sits on from his awesome solo album "U-Catastrophe" (2009), his father must be proud. And if you played in Kevin Gilbert´s Giraffe like Dave Kerzner did, you´re no amateur so together with stringer man Matt Dorsey they have created a fantastic progrock album that bring thoughts to old school prog bands like Genesis and Yes but also Peter Gabriel solo and modern prog such as Frost and Porcupine Tree. I am truly amazed over these songs, Simon´s vocal performance is reminiscent of Gabriel and I love how the band takes the listener on a musical landscape where you just have to close your eyes and dream away. Listen to "Realm of in-organic beings" and you´ll understand what I mean. Other highlights : "Pale blue dot", "Not coming down" and the 19 minute long "Mobius slip". We have a lift off.............
