Consumer Guide Reviews:

After Robots [Secretly Canadian, 2009]
Zulu prog beats Chicano prog, but then again, Ladysmith's angels beat prog's angel ("Banna Ba Modimo," "Molalatladi"). *

Mystery [Secretly Canadian, 2009] Dud

Zol! [Secretly Canadian, 2010]
With less to prove, or maybe more, Jo'burg art band sound more African but, except on the mbaqanga-ish title track, never unprog--which is a good thing ("Bogobe," "Zol!"). **
