A couple months back, the up and coming progressive rock band Unitopia released their latest album, Artificial, which was extremely well-received here. Co-founder and multi-instrumentalist Sean Timms kindly took the time for an interview with The Golden Bird.
It has been another great month for The Golden Bird. In this past May, there have been a ton of releases that I was no less than impressed by. There were a couple disappointments, but I’ve heard an overwhelming number of new releases which have convinced me that May was a great month for new music. As for the site, things are becoming more interesting with the help of Earsplit, who have agreed to help The Golden Bird however they can. They have continuously been fantastic! It has been an eventful month, and the recap will discuss the following:
- Album of the Month

Through InsideOut, the Australian progressive rock band, Unitopia, released their latest album. It is entitled Artificial and became available on May 3, 2010. After listening to their highly acclaimed The Garden, I had high expectations for this one. Artificial went above and beyond each and every one of them, creating what I would call a near-perfect album.
