I discovered this hidden gem earlier this year via a local record store, and it has been in my heavy rotation ever since, earning the #2 spot this year, due to my frequency of listening.
In fact, the album only has three prog instrumental tracks, “The Bane of William Watson,” “Buenas Noches,” and “Letters of Last Resort,” yet these are surrounded by a wealth of other funky rock tracks that contain superb songwriting and impeccable musicianship.
I was lucky enough to see this band play live twice this year, and they are even more impressive in concert than on record, if you can believe it. That’s because of the truly stellar line-up of musicians, and also their penchant for covering classic prog tunes.
Mark my words, get to know this band now, because they are only getting started, and they are truly a major musical force to be reckoned with, as this fine album attests. Their funkadelic prog is guaranteed to put a smile on your face and a spring in your step.
DJBC is the real deal: talent to burn, and songs that blaze into glory like the most majestic of fireworks. Long live rock!
