Hard to choose, pretty nonchalant about both bands, and my vote won't make much of a difference anyways.

I haven't listened to SGM in about five years, and really didn't like Of Natural History one bit before (I love most acts in RIO/Avant Prog that I  know, and have cited that one as my least liked), but maybe I'm ready to try it again as my tastes have expanded since then..  I haven't listened to Sigur Ros much in the last eight years, but used to like them very much (before I got back into Prog, Sigur Ros was maybe my favourite modern band).  I won't vote before returning to both.

Sigur Ros for me! I'm not a big fan of the Post-Rock genre but I've heard alot of beautiful music from Sigur Ros. SGM is worth listening to but I find it a bit too weird for repeated listens
A GREAT YEAR FOR PROG!!!

I really like SGM, but I like Sigur Ros more.  Totally awesome and opposite bands.

Yeah Sigur Ros. It's hillbillies that finally swang the vote. Can't stand them.
SGM actually tops The Mars Volta when it comes to annoying ambient bits.
Thanks !! Your topics always so good and informative. I like you talk.

Does the singing in songs like FC: the freedom club remind anyone else of Renate Knaupp from Amon Duul 2?
So far, Sigur Ros is winning. But I'll say one thing for SGM. They make you pay attention to their music.
