Description/Reviews
A new progressive music project, Zeitgeist is a collaborative music endeavor featuring members of the progressive rock bands Happy The Man, Oblivion Sun, and the Pedal Giant Animals project. The recording project started out as an idea for a Happy The Man reunion CD, but evolved to include many other musicians so another Pedal Giant Animals project was born.

Description/Reviews
Formed in 2018, and with a lineup whose pedigree includes bands such as as WHITE WILLOW, HENRY FOOL, ÄNGLAGÅRD, THE TIM BOWNESS BAND, WESERBANDLAND and NECROMONKEY, GALASPHERE 347 creates music on an epic, widescreen, scale, replete with a powerful and dynamic drum sound that intertwines itself with liquid bass lines, grinding guitars, mellifluous flute and lush analogue keyboards, the whole of which is topped off by passionate vocals. As can be expected from the varied geographical locations of members, GALASPHERE 347 draws from a variety of influences.
Together, these vastly experienced musicians seamlessly incorporate the technical spectacle of progressive rock with the distorted insistence of Krautrock, via the intimacy of the singer-songwriter’s oeuvre, to produce a three-track album that spans a total of forty minutes, or, as the band says, “Just about enough time to reach Jupiter at the speed of light”.
