It's inevitable that I miss out on some terrific music and culture every year. The sheer volume of releases seems to increase every year, and the lack of time to listen to everything, the recommendations of fellow critics and friends, well, there's just so many hours in a day. Here then are some things that I finally got around to ingesting in the last few weeks. Even caught a few live shows in between all of the mounting work. And if that wasn't enough, a killer new tune from His Purple Badass - Prince!

Prog is back! This young U.K.-based quartet -- guitar, violin, bass, drums -- borrows more from Gentle Giant than from the sound of its hometown of Canterbury, i.e., bands such as Caravan, Soft Machine, Egg, or Gong. I've not enjoyed a progressive rock record this much »

Chandler Williams, an Arena Football League player, died Saturday (Jan. 5) at a flag football tournament in South Florida, reports the AP. He was 27. No cause of death has been released yet.
The wide receiver was a seventh-round draft pick by the Minnesota Vikings in 2007 out of Florida International University, playing in preseason NFL games for four seasons but never seeing any regular-season action. In those preseason games, Williams took the field for the Vikings, Miami Dolphins, Atlanta Falcons and Kansas City Chiefs. He also played for the Toronto Argonauts in the Canadian Football League.
In 2012, Williams played for the Tampa Bay Storm in the Arena League, earning nearly 1000 yards receiving and 17 touchdowns. He also averaged 23 yards on kickoff returns.
Storm President Derrick Brooks says, "We are shocked and saddened" by Williams' death.
Williams is survived by his fiancee, Vanitia Harrigan, and a daughter, Tori Williams. »
