Suggestion for Crossover.
Not really what pops into your head when you think of prog, but when you get into there music there is quite a lot of prog.

As a pretty big fan, I've been on the fence about them on PA for a while. They're much more dissonant than many bands on the archives, and they're a pretty big fan of ambienty transition tracks with titles like Delivered In A Firm Unyielding Way Lingering For Just A Bit Too Long To Communicate The Message "I Own You", but they also have a very deliberately poppy song structure. I remember making a thread about them in General Music, but apparently that never actually happened...The only thing I can add is that they were planning Someday This Will All Be Yours to be a double concept album about natural disasters, but they broke up before part 2 was recorded. :( The singer and writer, John Congleton, also produced the Explosions in the Sky, Maserati, and This Will Destroy You albums, if that means anything (he's also worked with R. Kelly and Marilyn Manson...). 

Incidentally, I think The Lightning is one of the weaker songs on Someday This Will All Be Yours.

And one more from Now You Are One of Us

Sounds like a mild case for ZART. I've alerted the team.

Yeah, but they're probably too poppy for ZART. At least if I were on the team I probably wouldn't accept them, but they're also much more dissonant than what you think of as Crossover.

I really don't think Crossover will go for this one.

They are still under evaluation by the ZART.

But they're now one step closer! Wink

I don't wish to be mean, btw. I actually rather like this band. I just think they're avant-pop, not avant-prog.

Well they currently have two "No" votes and one "Move", so I can't see them finding their way clear to RIO/Avant.
