Various Artists – Kscope Volume 1 (CD)
One year on from its inception, Kscope releases Volume 1, a selection of tracks taken from an already substantial back catalogue, along with two tracks from forthcoming releases.
In recent years, a growing movement of bands has started to reclaim and reinvent aspects of the progressive, post-punk and post rock genres, re-establishing a desire to experiment with eclectic musical sources and state of the art widescreen sonic possibilities.
Kscope was created to provide a home for this evolving and adventurous style of music without boundaries, and was launched in May 2008 with new albums from its first signings The Pineapple Thief and No-Man.
These releases have been followed by albums from the legendary likes of Anathema and Porcupine Tree/Japan keyboard player Richard Barbieri, and highly rated newcomers such as Italian band Nosound and Lunatic Soul (the solo project of Riverside’s Mariusz Duda).
2009 is already shaping up to be an equally exciting year for Kscope with Insurgentes, the debut solo album from Porcupine Tree frontman Steven Wilson, and releases from the critically acclaimed Engineers and Swedish enigmas Anekdoten.
