Proud Peasant - Flight
Nice, first-time-out, instrumental progressive rock album from a Austin, TX band!
"Guitarist/composer Xander Rapstine had written 3 lengthy compositions, creating pastoral soundscapes that reflected the peace, beauty, terror, and uncertainty of life. The conscious choice was made to include no lyrical vocals on the initial recordings, as he felt a need to first find his voice musically. Inspired by some of his favorite bands and musicians, including Mike Oldfield, King Crimson, Genesis, and Gentle Giant, as well as newer bands like Astra, Wobbler, Bigelf and Lyrian, Xander founded Proud Peasant in the Fall of 2011."
