It’s the turn of Matteo Nicolin, guitarist, singer and composer with the excellent progressive rock band Syncage, to choose his top ten albums since 2000 for The European Perspective’s 250. Some outstanding choices here, including the remarkable Marta Sui Tubi, an unexpected and totally delightful new discovery for me.

We also have a preview of next weekend’s Summer’s End festival, and more Progradar’s Picks from the redoubtable Mr. Hutchinson.
