Elegant Simplicity - 7 Studio Albums (2001-2007)
EAC Rip | FLAC (image+.cue+log) - 3,12 GB | MP3 CBR 320 kbps (LAME 3.93) - 1,03 GB | Covers - 118 MB
Genre: Progressive Rock | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: Proximity Records

Practically a one-man band, Elegant Simplicity is headed by composer, arranger, programmer, producer and multi-instrumentalist Steve McCabe. Their material is highly keyboard- and guitar-oriented melodic prog that will alternately remind you of Camel, Genesis, The Alan Parsons Project, Barclay James Harvest, Mike Oldfield. Between 1992 and 1995, McCabe released 7 instrumental cassettes and then hired vocalist Ken Senior (from neo-prog band Evolution), along with a few guest musicians who appeared on subsequent albums. Since 1996, the 'band' has released practically one album a year.

The first thing one notices when studying this 2015 release is the large number of performers taking part, and the second thing is that neither of Steven's long-time collaborators, Ken Senior and Christopher Knight, have a part to play on this album (although apparently, they were involved with the original demos)...

Alela Diane - To Be Still
Label: Rough Trade Us 2009 | Time: 47:13 | Bitrate: MP3 166kbit av. | Size: 58.80 MB
Genre: Folk

‘To Be Still’ is the follow up to Alela Diane Menig’s critically acclaimed debut ‘The Pirate’s Gospel.’ ‘To Be Still’ utilizes a fuller sonic palette in creating the world that Menig’s characters inhabit. Although there is more instrumentation on this album, the highlight is still Menig’s voice. Menig is quite capable of going from a husky growl to a delicate mew for emphasis that recalls both Karen Dalton and Joanna Newsome.
The music on ‘To Be Still’ was created between 2007 & 2008 and recorded at her father’s home studio in Nevada City, California. The recording process for Alela Diane was a rather low key and family oriented affair. Her father played on the album with several of their shared musician friends. Family friend and visionary singer Michael Hurley guests on “Age Old Blues.” The album opens casually with a high and lonesome pedal steel on “Dry Grass & Shadows” that sets the weary and ghostly tone throughout the album.
Most of these songs feel like they could have been written 100 years ago, which is an impressive feat for a songwriter so young. “White As Diamonds” and “Age Old Blues” are both spare and mournful. In their simplicity, these songs sound as if they were taken from the Appalachian Mountains. The title track is a calming listen as it yearns for simpler times. As the album progresses, the music and theme becomes heavier both in theme and accompaniment. The moodier side of Alela Diane is evident most notably on “My Brambles” and “The Ocean.” “Every Path” seems to be the spectral cousin of “To Be Still” as both songs echo the theme of returning to a loved one.
‘To Be Still’ is a satisfying listen throughout. It is apparent that each of these songs has been crafted and each benefits from the fuller production. Alela Diane also sounds more assured and confident of her musical direction. “To Be Still” is available February 17 on Rough Trade Records.

Tesla - Simplicity (2014) [Japanese Edition]
EAC Rip | APE Image + Cue + Log - 467 MB | MP3 CBR @320 kbps - 163 MB | Full scans - 88.4 MB
Label: Marquee Inc. Japan / Frontiers Records | Catalog.#: MICP-11156 | Genre: Hard rock

Sacramento hard rockers Tesla were always outliers in the glam and pop metal scene of the late '80s. They had been experimenting with acoustic songs since their first album, 1986's Mechanical Resonance, and offered up a more honest and simply presented version of the era's blazing guitar anthems than their lipsticked, spandexed contemporaries. Despite a six-year break in the late '90s, they've also managed to stick around, releasing decent studio and live albums throughout the 2000s.

Aruitemo aruitemo aka Still Walking (2008)
Language - Japanese | 1:54:46 | XviD 1105 kbits/s | 23.97 fps | 672x368 | mp3, 103 kbit/s | 1.0 GB
Drama | Optional subtitles: English

A middle-aged brother and sister and their families visit their aging parents on the fifteenth anniversary of their brother Junpei's death from drowning while saving another boy. Relationships between generations are strained, however, and patriarch Kyohei (Yoshio Harada), a former doctor, does not hide his resentment for his surviving son Ryoto (Hiroshi Abe), an out of work art restorer. Selected as the best film at the Toronto International Film Festival in a poll of film critics and bloggers, Hirokazu Koreeda's Still Walking is a family-oriented comedy/drama about generational conflict and the consequences of loss. Unfolding in real time over a twenty-four hour period, it has been compared to Ozu's Tokyo Story in its intimate interchanges that accurately capture the way families relate to each other but lacks Ozu's warmth and subtlety.
