Folk World reviews Levi Parham‘s new release Avalon Drive:
Levi Parham sends us a six track promo-EP called Avalon Drive. Rocking the stars away, he brings a strong mixture of Americana, bluegrass and rock with occasionally some nice raw edges. Something happens on this EP. Parham has a nice, strong voice and I like the edgy way he writes, sings and arranges his compositions. Parham shows that he has all the ingredients to become a major name in the more underground sounding Americana-Rock styled music. Intriguing and definitely worth a listen at his webpage.

Music for the intellectual masses, their debut full-length album Wizards (Hibernator Gigs) is unleashed today and it is an album for dreamers based off of the eclectic perception of reality and escapist means from true reality. This band bends prog and synth pop music and re-casts it into a modern brilliance filled with a bonfire of fantastical visions.
