Post Progressive Post

North Atlantic Oscillation

Are two guys from Edinburgh and one from Glasgow. Update (March 24): Grappling Hooks is Zane Lowe's record of the week (BBC Radio One)! Review here.

They supported Porcupine Tree on a few dates last year, and were in turn well received and supported by the PT audience. Two tracks from their new (debut, out March 22) album "Grappling Hooks", and an interview, feature in the first Kscope podcast.

Which also has two tracks and two interviews from PT's Steven Wilson, speaking about the revival, post Radiohead's OK Computer, of "ambition" music (the original meaning of the term "progressive", as coined by the technically literate), and also about the film version of his Insurgentes solo album.

The Pineapple Thief's 10-year retrospective 3000 Days, and Anathema, also feature. In all, 40 minutes of new decade radio that should cure you of that 6 Music sulk.
