Tiger Moth Tales: Telling a fantasy story of the battle between good and evil.

Tiger Moth Tales - A Song Of Spring

A Song Of Spring is a suitable album title because we now are have the spring here, and the band behind the album is Tiger Moth Tales, and the label is White Knight Records.

The new album harks back to the two first album where prog was the main source to the music, and that is nice to discovers as the two album before A Song Of Spring was with little prog vibes. In many ways Spring Fever is a return to the more complex prog and characterized by the impressive multi-part Forester, telling a fantasy story of the battle between good and evil.

Flynnigan says, «Another great recording from Pete Jones under his Tiger Moth Tales guise. How does he do it? Every album has something different to hold the interest, fantastic musicianship, great production, highly recommended».

A Song Of Spring is the 7th studio album from Tiger Moth Tales, and follows on in the seasonal albums after 2017’s The Depths Of Winter’. This new offering from Pete Jones, celebrates the spirit of rebirth and renewal, light and new life.

Pete Jones says, «I didn’t know back in 2017 that I would do another album based on the seasons, as The Depths Of Winter concept formed as a result of a few false starts. But, having released it, I did have the thought in the back of my mind that it would be nice to get around to the other seasons in time. The time felt right this year, with so many positive aspects of the Spring season to look at, and I really wanted to write an upbeat album».

A Song Of Spring is a return to the big prog moments, soundscapes and themes that Tiger Moth Tales is associated with. As with all Tiger Moth Tales releases the full emotional spectrum is explored. Up tempo and joyful tracks like Spring Fever and Mad March Hare, contrast dramatically with the darkness of Dance Till Death and the sadness and introspective qualities of the anthemic Light. The latter track features a poignant, soaring solo from guitar legend and fellow Camel bandmate Andy Latimer.

All music written, recorded and produced by Pete Jones, except for Holi, recorded and produced by John Holden.

Om Ulf Backstrøm (6841 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
