Very interesting stuff... sounds like avant/experimental folk/post rock to me. Best I can say is ZART, so I'll alert the team.

I have been thinking about suggesting this band for PA, rather in the prog-folk area though.
Seen them live around 2000, one of those few concerts that really took my breath away.

They've got a fair lot of variety in their music, I think I was probably thinking eclectic

Good stuff. Sounds like Swans but toned down, more diverse and more progressive. I'll agree with Andy, avant-prog is the only place I could see this on PA (but the ZART might deem them as avant-rock not avant-prog, though).

I see Octopus is the only member of the zart to look at it so far, and he says to move it

It's on the chart, so the team will get to it eventually.

6 months and only one team member has even listened.  On MMA we get people impatiently bumping threads within 2 days

You could always ask Matt to vote; he's active on their chart.

Sounds not enough progressive via their samples / videoclips you've provided ...

bumping this in light of Swans being added

Maybe Angels of Light next for prog folk then?

Yes, not proggy enough for what you'd expect from Avant Prog but in line with some twisted 'Americana' acts the Prog Folk team digs (I'm thinking Wovenhand and Bruce Lamont).

I'm not sure it always comes through very clearly on their albums but the tour I have seen for this debut this really struck me as a 'post-folk' band, with their songs often stretched to 10 minute build-ups.

Maybe the evaluation should be based on listening to a full album instead of some youtube clips?
I would suggest the first album then, even though it's not an easy listen.

I agree.  Coincidentally, the entire album is on youtube.

I completely agree with AoL's inclusion here. Post-Folk sounds about right. 

Here are some songs that i think may help with their case.

I don't think this was ever passed to the folk rock team, so here's me doing so - see what's what.

They have (finally) been added to Prog Folk.
