Album Review
Reviewed 2020-03-25 
– General Description: Remember the band YES? So if they went purely instrumental, this is the feel you’d have except with a slightly more playful streak:

‘In a space between rock form and jazz freedom, evoking the pastoral psychedelia of Anthem of the Sun-era Grateful Dead, while simultaneously conjuring the tricky time signatures of Gentle Giant.’

Guranfoe is a Norwich (England) band that has been described as producing modern sounding jazz fusion while referencing classic prog rock. This is their debut studio album and they are an absolute delight.
