Album: The Yellow Moon Band, Travels into Several Remote Nations of...(Static Caravan)

With an album title that conjures Rick Wakeman solo albums, a drummer who used to be in Dodgy, and a band mission statement to be "more Hackett than Genesis", this has "file under foolishness" written all over it.

Yet, in the hands of Green Man founders It's Jo and Danny, it's as refreshing and relevant as "neo-prog-folk" can ever be. It's deep, but not indulgent. Mostly instrumental, but never boring. In short – like the festival the pair founded – it's a breath of musical fresh air.

Pick of the album: The melodic and magical "Maybach"
