          In recent years, a growing movement of bands has started to reclaim and reinvent aspects of the progressive, post-punk and post rock genres, re-establishing a desire to experiment with eclectic musical sources and state of the art widescreen sonic possibilities. Kscope was created to provide a home for this evolving and adventurous style of music without boundaries, and was launched in 2008 with new albums from The Pineapple Thief, No-Man, Anathema & Porcupine Tree/Japan keyboard player Richard Barbieri. Kscope Volume 1 is a collection of tracks taken from the label’s catalogue so far and features tracks from Steven Wilson, No-Man, Engineers, Anekdoten, North Atlantic Oscillation, Richard Barbieri, Nosound, Anathema and The Pineapple Thief. For a limited period all orders placed through the Kscope store will come with a free dropcard with a unique code allowing users to download the Kscope Volume 1 album. For further info go to www.kscopemusic.com Enjoy. The Pineapple Thief For the past ten years, The Pineapple Thief have been quietly building up a dedicated fan base across the globe, selling over 25,000 records and gaining huge critical acclaim in the process. The Somerset-based band’s bittersweet progressive sound has been nurtured over seven albums, culminating in last years Tightly Unwound. This album raised the band’s profile and has been followed with a European tour and festival appearances in North America with more to follow throughout 2009. ‘It’s an atmospheric listen of bold indie that rarely rests on its laurels’ Rocksound ‘A gem waiting to found’ Classic Rock Society www.kscopemusic.com/thepineapplethief Lunatic Soul Lunatic Soul is the new project from Riverside frontman Mariusz Duda. The self-titled debut album was released on Kscope in October 2008. Riverside have risen to prominence over the past five years as part of an emergent group of post-progressive acts alongside groups like Porcupine Tree, Opeth and Dream Theater. Lunatic Soul provides Duda with an opportunity for him to explore musical avenues beyond those normally associated with Riverside and allowed him to create a beautiful, atmospheric album. ‘Beautiful, kaleidescopic, and at times breathtakingly forlorn... brilliant’ 8/10 Metal Hammer www.kscopemusic.com/lunaticsoul No-Man No-Man are Tim Bowness and Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree) No-Man combine traditional values of songcraft and emotional commitment with an ongoing desire to play with the creative possibilities of modern music. Bridging the gaps between art-rock, electronica, experimental pop, jazz and contemporary classical music, the band has released six studio albums over the last fifteen years. years. The most recent of these was Schoolyard Ghosts which was released on Kscope in April 2008. Wherever There Is Light,an EP featuring two new studio tracks, plus live recordings from last year’s Bush Hall show and two video tracks is available from May. The video tracks are taken from the forthcoming DVD Mixtaped which will be released later in 2009. ‘Truly sublime’ 9/10 Classic Rock www.kscopemusic.com/no-man Engineers Three Fact Fader Engineers are not like any other band. Onstage Simon Phipps is the singer, Dan Macbean is the guitarist, Mark Peters is the bassist and Sweeney is the drummer, but the real clue is in their name: they approach their music like engineers, carefully constructing wonderful walls of sound. Following the rapturous reception that greeted their mini-album Folly in 2004 and debut Engineers the following year, it’s taken them a long time to build their epic second album, Three Fact Fader. After initial recording sessions, Engineers became unwitting victims of record company restructuring and the album was left in limbo, unfinished until the band reconvened earlier this year, largely motivated by public support. The band have now found a home on Kscope. www.kscopemusic.com/engineers Anekdoten Anekdoten are considered one of the leading bands in contemporary progressive rock. Their intensive, dark, dynamic and original music has also appealed to metal, goth and post-rock fans all over the world. Anekdoten was formed in 1991 by Anna Sofi Dahlberg, Nicklas Barker, Peter Nordins and Jan Erik Liljeström and this line up has remained intact ever since. Together they have released 5 studio albums on their own Virta label and 3 live albums in Japan, selling over 85,000 albums in the process. Chapters, a 2CD introduction to the band collecting tracks for their five studio albums alongside unreleased material and rarirites, was released on Kscope in May 2009. ‘Anekdoten are the finest young prog band in the world today’ Prog-Archives www.kscopemusic.com/anekdoten North Atlantic Oscillation North Atlantic Oscillation have been described as prog-pop and electro-rock, but really they just make music. The music has soaring harmonies and loud guitars and dreamy synths and heavy drums and strange effects and unexpected changes-of-mind. NAO are a Scottish based duo (Ben Martin, drums/percussion/programming, and Sam Healy, vocals, guitar, bass, keyboards, synths, sax, percussion) who describe themselves as playing their instruments within a computerised wall of sound. ‘An astonishing amalgam of Flaming Lips and Grandaddy indie-pop sensibilities with a bewildering vista of sound sweeping ahead of the listener... Acid-addled, silver-caped prog genius.’ ★★★★★ Is This Music? www.kscopemusic.com/northatlanticoscillation Richard Barbieri Richard Barbieri‘s amazing musical career has spanned four decades, taking him from the seminal recordings he made with Japan in the seventies right through to the current worldwide success he is enjoying with Porcupine Tree. Stranger Inside was his second solo album released in september ‘08 on Kscope. Barbieri wrote and produced the album himself assisted by a host of familiar faces from throughout his career. Steve Jansen (Japan, Nine Horses) mixed and co arranged the album, it was mastered by Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree) and features guest musician appearances from Gavin Harrison (PT) and the legendary double bass player Danny Thompson. In addition to this nearly all tracks, though instrumental in nature, feature the sampled voices of Tim Bowness (No-Man) and Suzanne Barbieri. www.kscopemusic.com/richardbarbieri Nosound Regarded by critics and fans alike as one of the most interesting up and coming alt/art rock bands in Europe, Nosound inventively combines influences from ‘70s psychedelia, ‘80s/’90s ambient and contemporary alternative, progressive and post rock. Nosound started as a one man studio project in late 2002 by Giancarlo Erra, but has since grown into a five piece band, evolving into something unique, focused and powerful. The music is evocative and intense, with personal songwriting. Influences range from Pink Floyd to Brian Eno, from Porcupine Tree to Sigur Rós, passing through rock and electronic / ambient. 2CD edition of the Lightdark album was released on Kscope in 2008. The album features guest vocals from Tim Bowness (No-Man) and also includes the video for title track. ‘More great stuff from new prog label Kscope’ Classic Rock www.kscopemusic.com/nosound Anathema Anathema have been at the forefront of the UK rock/metal movement for many years. They began their journey as pioneers of melodic heavy music, influencing a myriad of bands to follow them, before outgrowing all genres and limitations as they fearlessly explored new territory and new ways to express feeling through sound. Formed in Liverpool in 1990, the band’s sound, and musical vision has continually evolved over the ensuing years while always remaining true to their original goal of creating forward thinking, meaningful, passionate and honest music. Hindsight, features semi-acoustic interpretations of classic Anathema tracks plus the new track Unchained (Tales Of The Unexpected) ‘These are all quality renditions of quality songs.’ Rocksound www.kscopemusic.com/anathema Steven Wilson One of the most eclectic and prolific artists in rock music, Steven Wilson has been writing, recording, and producing music continuously since the age of 10. Best known as the frontman of Porcupine Tree, Wilson is also the key component in various other projects including No-Man, Blackfield, Bass Communion as well as a respected producer and mixer acclaimed for his work with Opeth and Anja Garbarek amongst others. Insurgentes, his debut solo album, was released on Kscope in early 2009. Comprising 10 new tracks that range from ballads and anthems to all-out industrial noise assaults, the dark, cinematic and richly textured album represents two years’ worth of creative output and numerous recording sessions worldwide in studios from Mexico City to Japan and Israel. ‘Wilson has created yet another masterpiece. Insurgentes is an incredible musical journey and an essential purchase for anyone who still believes in the sanctity of music as an art-form.’ Classic Rock Prog www.kscopemusic.com/stevenwilson

Sometimes playful, sometimes intense, sometimes eerie and ethereal, Men Singing is equal parts dynamic drums, spiky guitars and atmospheric washes of fluttering flutes and vintage keyboards. Produced and arranged by band founders keyboardist Stephen Bennett and guitarist Tim Bowness (Steven Wilson's creative partner in No-Man), the album has been mixed by Jarrod Gosling (I Monster/Regal Worm), who also contributes Mellotron, glockenspiel and the wonderfully surreal artwork. Appearing on Everyone In Sweden and Man Singing, Phil Manzanera's legendary guitar skills can be heard in the context of long-form instrumental music for the first time since his celebrated stint in 1970s mavericks Quiet Sun. Other contributions come from Brian Eno collaborator and Slow Electric member Peter Chilvers (bass), lead guitarist Michael Bearpark, Andrew Booker (drums), Myke Clifford (sax/flute) and Classical violinist Steve Bingham, all of whom have worked live with No-Man or as part of London underground club, Improvizone. A vibrant and instinctive contemporary take on Progressive, Psychedelic and Jazz Rock styles, Men Singing is available on the Kscope label as a limited edition cd in vinyl replica artwork, a standard cd and an LP. Mastered by award-winning Pink Floyd sound engineer, Andy Jackson.
