Wud Records: recommended Bandcamp albums January 2017

Wud Records’ recommended Bandcamp albums have changed. There is so much great music to recommend at Bandcamp that we try to remember to refresh our recommendations from time to time. We have an eclectic trio of goodies for you this month. Why don’t you click the links and support these great artists with a download, or at the very least, a listen? The ones we have chosen are:

While You Were Gone by Vestbo Trio
From jazz, blues and porn-star funk to Waits/Cave noir crankiness, there’s something for everyone in this beautifully crafted album of eclectic instrumentals.

Песни Тигаров by Lena Markova
Fantastic riffs, musicianship and performances. All in Russian so we understand almost none, but it sounds great and kicks some serious a$$!

The Narluga Epic by Lance Eads
A wonderful acoustic concept album journey from this clever wordsmith. Woody Guthrie meets Frank Zappa. High on entertainment for all ages from 8 to 800.

The three fabulous albums below are the ones making way. All of these are also wonderful recommended Bandcamp albums. Each deserves a download, or at the very least a full listen, so please go ahead and click the links. Albums removed from our recommendations go back into the pool and will reappear there sometime in the future as we still love them all. If you are a fan of awesome twenty-first century progressive rock and progressive metal then you will absolutely love the three albums we chose. Go ahead and click the links! They are:

Twinned With: Your Face by Throatpunch City
Stunning original virtuoso progressive rock, they put on a great live show too.

Rise of the Waterfowl by Farmhouse Odyssey
Keyboard-driven smooth melodic progressive rock from the USA, inspiring and addictive, beautifully crafted songs.

Ode to the Author by Toska
Instrumental progressive metal from three exceptionally talented young musical gurus who also play in the band Dorje.

We will try to refresh our recommended Bandcamp albums every six weeks or so. More joyful unearthed gems will be shouted about in our News service and on Twitter.
