It seems like that whole Seattle progressive/pop-punk scene stick together rather often. Thomas Hunter used to be part of Forgive Durden until the mass exodus from the band, and later joined several Gatsby's American Dream members with the psychedelic Wild Orchard Children. Hunter's solo project isn't necessarily done solo, mentioning nine other musicians who contributed to the creation of his first release. White China Gold combines prog, jazz, indie, and classic rock to make a highly orchestrated, slightly chaotic, but always entertaining album. No two songs sound the same, and can appeal to everyone from a 25 year old jazz enthusiast, to a 17 year old pop-punk kid, to a 45 year old that misses seeing Led Zeppelin and Aerosmith. The whole album is up for free download on Bandcamp, so check it out here.
