Andy Scoffin, the UK's one-man machine of the psychedelic realm, elevates his project Head Spin to new heights with his second album, "Refractor," released today, March 5, 2024. Across six instrumental tracks, totaling 52 immersive minutes, Scoffin weaves together trippy grooves, sky-high guitar solos, and vast soundscapes. "Refractor" is a melting pot of funk, prog, electronica, and other eclectic genres, encapsulating a unique auditory journey.

Far from the typical ambient psychedelia, "Refractor" stands out through Scoffin's vibrant guitar work, echoing the spirits of his influences like Jimi Hendrix and Frank Zappa. The album maintains a dynamic energy. Not a bad track to be found here...

Far from the typical ambient psychedelia, "Refractor" stands out through Scoffin's vibrant guitar work, echoing the spirits of his influences like Jimi Hendrix and Frank Zappa. The album maintains a dynamic energy. Not a bad track to be found here, with the final track, “Half Remembered,” the stand out bit of prog.

Listeners are invited to dive into a world where every track offers a different hue of Scoffin's musical spectrum by tuning into Prog Radio. From the electronic beats reminiscent of Ozric Tentacles to the guitar-driven soundscapes akin to Steve Hillage, "Refractor" is a compelling listen for those who seek a profound, instrumental psychedelic experience.

The perfect palate cleansers between all out other prog fair at Prog Radio, enjoy several tracks from “Refractor” in our New Music rotation, as well as featured in this week’s “What’s New Proggy Cats?” show.
