Kscope The monthly Kscope Podcast is presented by Billy Reeves. A new edition of the podcast will be available each month.

Hello, welcome to the Kscope Podcast 120, where we embrace the weirdness.

Beautiful, emotive, gentle mythical-folk this time out, as two award-winning musicians release solo LPs on our label:  Jonathan Hultén with ‘Chants From Another Place’ - myth, legend, pastoral and  Mariana Semkina with ‘Sleepwalking’  - theatre, pre-Raphaelite, baroque.

We speak to both Mariana and Jonathan about writing alone, moving along to the next phase, and the magic of Hastings…



Jonathan Hultén – ‘Where Devils Weep’, ‘Wasteland’ and ‘The Mountain’



Mariana Semkina – ‘Still Life’, ‘Everything Burns’ and ‘Turn Back Time’


In this month’s podcast, ‘In Absentia’ by Porcupine Tree gets the deluxe edition treatment, giving Billy Reeves the perfect excuse to probe Richard Barbieri, Gavin Harrison and Colin Edwin on the odds of a reunion and who is the only member of YES who was nice to them. 

Plus solo work from Jonathan Hultén, Iamthemorning’s Mariana Semkina and some Grand Theft Auto V courtesy of Tangerine Dream.


Porcupine Tree – ‘Trains’, ‘Blackest Eyes’ and ‘Sound of Muzak’ (from In Absentia)


Tangerine Dream – ‘Los Santos City Map’ (from Recurring Dreams)


Jonathan Hultén – ‘Wasteland’ (from Chants from Another Place)

Presented by Mr Jerry Ewing, the editor and founder of PROG magazine and the host of the annual Progressive Music Awards.

The magazine just reached 100 editions, so we thought it’s high time we asked Jerry to give us a golden hour of his top Kscope tracks, his memories of hearing them for the first time, their post-rock and psychedelic qualities, how they fit into the Universe that he’s created at Prog - and that time we were dancing to Danny Cavanagh’s twelve inchers…
