First release from a duo of keyboards and drums + guests really REALLY want to be Egg with melodic Hatfield traces. They get the sonics right and musically, often, they actually come really, really close in a good way.

“Of all the progressive rock subgenres, the “Canterbury Scene” designation may be the most specifically geographed. The obvious contender would be the Italian prog scene. On the newly announced debut album from Zopp, we’re promised a hefty slice of Canterbury-Prog via collaboration with an Italian progressive rock drummer. The specificity of those geographical-sonic markers is then tempered with additions of classical, jazz, and ambient elements.
Sounds proggy, eh? It gets proggier. Zopp have taken their music off on a Tangent with a guest performance from Theo Travis and the production/mixing mastery of Andy Tillison. And how does this keys-meister describe the album? “It’s […] stuffed full of glorious fuzz organs, old clanky pianets, groaning Mellotrons and the occasional synthesiser.”
