Travel Into The Worlds Of Space Rock With Nik Turner And Progressive Rock With Exit North

English musician, Nik Turner, co-founder of the British space rock band Hawkwind, recently released a brand new studio album titled "The Final Frontier." He started his solo space mission six years ago with the release of "Space Gypsy" and has continued to release a new album every couple of years. This new nine-song release is a continuation of his last album "Life In Space," as he kicks things off with the nostalgic, psych-rock of "Out Of Control." Nik Turner slows the tempo down for the exploratory flow of "Interstellar Aliens" and the experimental hints of instrumentation on "Thunder Rider." Turner and his band get locked into the groove of "The Final Frontier Part 1," before traveling back in time for the psychedelic space rock of "Calling The Egyptians." Nik Turner wraps up his new album with the eight-minute progressive rock adventure "Strange Loop" and the quiet, floating tones of "PAD4."

Arriving April 12th is the debut album from the progressive rock quartet, Exit North. The idea came together when Steve Jansen (co-founder of the band, Japan) formed a partnership with fellow artist Thomas Feiner on Jansen's 2007 album "Slope." Since then, the two have created a bond and brought on-board Ulf Jansson and Charlie Storm to create the band Exit North and the album "Book Of Romance and Dust."

The new nine-song release begins with the slow-building, atmospheric flow of "Best Bones," as you begin to get introduced to this group. The mood of the album continues to be dark and melodious with the songs, "Short Of One Dimension" and "Sever Me." The music of "North" allows you to explore your feelings with it's subtle hints of sound, before Exit North build the music back up once again through "Lesson In Doubt." They finish up their album with the nine-minute epic wonder of "Losing" and the gentle touch of "Another Chance."
