Swedish progressive rock band, Sonar teamed-up once again with American guitarist David Torn for their latest release "Tranceportation (Volume 1)." It will be released on November 28th through RareNoise Records and builds upon the relationship that these artists began last year with the release of their album "Vortex." This new album features only four tracks, beginning with the epic fourteen-and-a-half minute "Labyrinth," which allows you to find your way through the music, as the second half of the song continues to slowly build with intensity. The expansive, ambient flow of "Partitions" is the shortest song on the album at just under six-minutes, before Sonar and David Torn finish with the jazz-like drumming and shrieking guitar riffs of "Tunnel Drive."

Next up is the latest release from German guitarist/composer Yuval Ron. His new album titled "Somewhere In This Universe, Somebody Hits A Drum" features only six tracks that take you on a sonic, progressive rock journey and features the work of Marco Minnemann. Ron kicks things off with the quick tempo changes of the title-track, as proudly displays his epic guitar skills on this Frank Zappa-esque style number. The album continues with the atmospheric flow of "Gravitational Lensing" and the nearly ten-minute energetic intense delivery of "Wifi In Emerald City," before closing with the jazz-like, space rock of "I Believe In Astronauts."

We close out with Boston-based rock artist JATK, who recently released his new self-titled debut album. The new four-song EP is filled with hook-filled rock, beginning with the addictive, sing-along chorus of "How I Feel Inside," which carries a classic, seventies-rock vibe. The energy continues to flow through the big guitar riffs of "Angry Anchor," before finishing with the more aggressive, hard rock attack of "Nuebella Satan."
