USA, 2008, progressive rock

Birds and BuildingsBantam to Behemoth: With more than a little Zeuhl influence, this band starts its discography off right with a high-energy opening. The drums and synths play well together, and everything’s held together by the dynamic interplay of the guitars and horns. Vocals aren’t really highlighted here, but when they are, they blend perfectly with the overall feel of the tracks. This is intelligent without having to be “challenging”. This band will be forever linked in my mind with ice cream, because when I met one of my good friends for the first time, we met in an ice cream shop and talked about music. He name-dropped this band, and I looked them up and listened to them as soon as I got home.Birds and Buildings – Bantam to BehemothWith more than a little Zeuhl influence, this band starts its discography off right with a high-energy opening.
