A little bit of folk, King Crimson, weird black comedy, and a bunch of other things.

These guys are my new favorite band. They only have 100 or so likes on Facebook and they have 9 albums out. I'm not sure about the first 3, but when I heard the album at http://procosmianfannyfiddlers.bandcamp.com/, their most recent, I IMMEDIATELY contacted them and had their most recent 6 albums imported to me.

These guys epitomize DIY prog rock. Their recordings are not "radio" quality, but it gives it a truly classic feel, and the comedy is interspersed with such complex musicianship, you cant help but laugh and be pulled emotionally at the same time.

I mean, what other band would tell you to kill yourself and talk about cake on 5 different songs on the same album?

I've only heard their most recent and loved it. How are the other albums compared to it?

They are amazing. I paid 79 for 5 CDs and one digital including shipping to the US.


Now the only one that I would say is a give or take is Sweaty Owl, BUT that was because I tried it all chronologically. It makes more sense to go backwards and give each a spin 3-5 times. By the time you get to sweaty owl, it will make more sense. And also, there is an amazing 20 minute epic on there... Yea you should get that too.

get rolling court and everything after it. There are enough moments that will blow you away. They have a truly, distinct and original sound. I only wish Devin townsend would produce their next one, as very solid production would make them soooooo good.

Honestly, I laughed, I felt scared, felt a dooming happiness, and I am still discovering changing nuances in the sound. I've new listening to them about 3-4 hours a day for 2 or 3 weeks

No more love for these geniuses?

I recommend them if you like King Crimson, Zappa, Prog-folk, being serious and silly at the same time.
