Friday: Thank You Scientist - In the Company of Worms

     Keeping the ball rolling, let's go for an alliterative Funky Friday with some multi-instrumentalist prog from New Jersey's Thank You Scientist.

     Thank You Scientist's debut LP Maps of Non-Existent places is chock full of energetic prog rock that runs a gamut of moods and styles. A variety of horns and strings provide an extra twist, add an interesting dimension to the at-times almost shreddy virtuosity, and take songs that are already great to a whole other level. If you've not heard them before, think Mars Volta with less Latin influence and leaner, more focused songwriting, and then press play on "In the Company of Worms". Very tasty.
