The instrumental trio Feathers (not to be confused with other artists of the same name), consisting of keyboard player/guitarist Eddie Alonso, drummer Matt Crum, and bassist Eric Rasco, issues the second of a projected trilogy of EPs with Synchromy, which is informed by a rock sensibility out of the late '60s or early '70s. In fact, much of the time, the music sounds like the instrumental break or solo section of a song by some psychedelic or progressive rock act of that era -- the Doors, Frank Zappa, Iron Butterfly, the Who, etc. -- except that the singer never comes back in to bring that song to its conclusion; instead, the music mutates into something else and continues on. It makes for a trippy listening experience and might accompany a light show or portions of a '70s science fiction movie.
