A share from the wonderful progressive rock online magazine Exposé:
Love their “About” there website:
Once there was music. Simple music. Maybe a nursery rhyme or a simple folk tune sung by a kind and loving voice. Soon your ears met new music, maybe a classical piece or a fragment of a pop song, a comforting melody that played in your mind the whole day through. The simplicity of youth soon gave way to the anxieties of adolescence; pop music, then perhaps rock — began to speak more directly to your spirit in turmoil. As time went by, your musical tastes continued to develop driven by a hunger for new ideas, reaching for new horizons, fusing new styles and idioms, breaking down the existing limits and barriers. Then one day you found yourself alone, ignored completely by a music and radio industry firmly set on maintaining popular music at its lowest common denominator, while your wide ranging taste for eclectic musical styles and experimentation find you increasingly disconnected from the musical mainstream. Is this you?
This growth and disconnection is what Exposé is all about. Our primary focus is the music that the mainstream ignores; music whose roots seem to have originated somewhere just outside the pop/rock mainstream, but has progressed onwards toward the boundaries of rock, where it meets jazz, classical, folk, avant-garde, electronic and experimental, going well beyond the standard forms into areas of stark and stunning originality. With Exposé, the focus is on the exploration.
"When streaming and downloading will pale in comparison to the feeling of a physical album and music lovers will once again want to own their music and experience the joy of a new release. ..until that day, places like Patreon temporarily hold that intimate space between the musician and the music lover”
