Dave Kulju's 'Abstract Expression' is a collection of 9 instrumental compositions that explore various textures and styles with a progressive vibe. While experimental enough for progressive music fans, this album places a heavy focus on strong melodies, well crafted songwriting, and unusual but infectious grooves. Listeners will be rewarded with hard driving pieces like 'Internal Combustion' and 'The Main Attraction' but also treated to more contemplative works like 'Pleiades' and 'The Depth of Autumn'. The charm of the quirky and unpredictable are well represented in 'Picnic at the Slag Heap' and the lengthy 'Somnium'. Dave, guitarist and keyboard player for the band Electrum, is an independent musician who wrote, recorded, and produced this album in his home studio working with a number of talented guest musicians.
