Album of the Day

After the Storm, by Various Artists (2006): Keeping on the theme of prog fest compilation discs, here's one put together by the guys who started NEARFest (along with Gayle Elliot from Djam Karet). It was a response to Hurricane Katrina, with all the proceeds going to Habitat for Humanity recovery efforts. Two dozen artists contributed material, much of it previously unreleased. It includes great tracks from echolyn (written specifically for the disc), Mike Keneally (a killer cover of an overlooked old Genesis tune), and New Orleans's own Woodenhead. Good tunes for good cause.
