Mount Pressmore Revives Progressive Rock

Mount Pressmore Revives Progressive Rock

Rest easy Prog rock enthusiasts; Mount Pressmore is here to keep the artsy, jazz-fusion genre alive and experimental in Austin. After a year of examining and perfecting their songs, Pressmore’s album, Enjoy, was recorded over just three short days before being released last year. Keyboardist and vocalist, Thomas Shaw, takes pride in the accomplishments of his band, as well as his father, Robert Shaw. With 14 Grammy awards behind the famed conductor, it is no wonder that his son Thomas will settle for nothing short of perfection in one of the most difficult forms of rock and roll music. Listen to their epic single, ‘Trampoline’, for a very Yes-like symphonic masterpiece matched with some very David Byrne-esque vocals. –Written by Jodi Lang
