"El eco del sol" was the never-expected comeback album for Argentina's Bubu, who released the classic "Anabelas" in 1978.

Norway's Wobbler produce an unabashed retro-prog with everything where you would want it.

The Winstons, not to be confused with the OTHER group, are an Italian outfit offering a modern take on the Canterbury sound.

La fabbrica dell'assoluto is the kind of Gothic Italian prog you would expect from the Black Widow label, and this album was a concept based on Orwell's 1984.

Necromonkey is the Swedish duo of Mattias Olsson (Änglagård and a thousand other things) and David Lundberg (Gosta Berlings Saga) combining synthesizer and percussion sounds in atmospheric fashion.

Karda Estra is the musical project of composer Richard Wileman, whose albums often sound like soundtracks for unreleased films. Mondo Profondo fits in the oeuvre while having at least a few rockier moments.

Kotebel, based in Spain, have released a number of albums that place themselves well in the progressive rock canon while often having a more classically reminiscent compositional style; on this album they lean into it and produce a concerto.

What goes on in those crazy prog rock minds? Brilliance tumbling over itself. Frickin eh.
