Sirens and Us

The Norwegian music library blog Musikkprat made me aware of the band Sirens And Us. On their MySpace page their music is described like this: "With deep roots in early progressive rock ( King Crimson, Van der Graaf Generator, Procol Harum, Yes, Genesis) Sirens and us meets a more approachable genre in the alternative rock (Radiohead, dEUS, Sonic Youth). This mixture of genres results in a brand new honest sound."

I must admit I´m not a big prog fan, but appreciate the prog flavors in bands like Jaga Jazzist and Shining, and since Sirens and Us list Soft Machine and Robert Wyatt among their favorites, let´s listen to these guys.

The band is: Bård Ingebrigtsen / voc, guitar, different things, Eirik Øien / guitar, bass, voc, things, Kjetil Bremer / drums og Øystein Frantzvåg / bass.

Album: "The Trap" (RRM 2010), with Sissy Wish and Mathias Eick guesting.
