Yeah, Oceansize were great.

As for Flights, never heard of them and tried searching for them now. Only found them on Spotify. I'm liking the music so far! Thanks for the recommendation Jazz!

Dang. So many search results competing for the search query 'Flights' even including the album title is of no help.

curious about this band Flights.

Here they are on YouTube
https://www.youtube.com/user/flightsbandofficial

not sure if I'd be able to buy their ep or album, z'History Be Kind" anywhere now. Or even just a d/l link somewhere.

edit:
here's their debut album available digital or vinyl
https://historybekind.bandcamp.com/releases

ep:
https://flights.bandcamp.com/releases

I guess if I recommended an Oceansize-like band, other than the Vennart solo stuff and maybe British Theatre, I would go with the instrumental Post Rock band from Down Under, Meniscus.

^nice find! thanks for the links and recommendations.

Can't wait for Karnivool's new album, hope it comes out this year.

np. I guess Flights did break up though in 2014.

One other band I forgot that sort has an Oceansize vibe at times, is Dream the Electric Sleep. In fact on their last album, 1 of their singles "Let the Light Flood In" the opening riff sounds an awful lot like "Amputee"

But they're a great band regardless.

and yeah, I'm looking forward to the new Karnivool album, whenever it comes, this year, or if not, hopefully in 2018.

Clairvoyant by The Contortionist, sounds a lot like Skyharbor's Guiding lights. Sounded great but i need to give it a few more listens.

Any other prog releases from this year that I should check out?

here's my Albums of the Year
http://allmediareviews.blogspot.com/201 ... -year.html

10. Steven Wilson - To the Bone
9. Anakdota - Overloading
8. Godspeed You Black Emperor - Luciferian Towers
7. Anathema - The Optimist
6. Pain of Salvation - In the Passing Light of Day
5. 22 - You Are Creating: Limb 1
4. Bent Knee - Land Animal
3. Everything Everything - A Fever Dream
2. Small Leaks Sink Ships - Golden Calf
1. Mutemath - Play Dead

Among those that are "progressive" I would say Bent Knee would be a good one, also the new Steven Wilson is as prog rock as it is poppy.

Anathema's new one as well, while conceptual, is a nice continuation of from their previous 3 records.

Clairvoyant is a huge grower. A lot of the songs sound dormant compared to the more dynamic songs in their previous record, but I can see each song's merit. I like the production in Language better though.

Speaking of prog metal, I'm really getting into Periphery 3 as of late. I'm late to the party, but I'm finally starting to 'love' a Periphery album at last - whereas in the past I just skim through the tracks and never bother keeping them on regular rotation. I think JP Bouvet's stint as a fill in for Matt Halpern also influenced me to give P3 another look too.
