Not so avant-prog as Thinguma*jigSaw.
Not sure if they can be fit for Prog Folk.

''Think a lysergic Incredible String Band crossed with a mescaline-addled Fairport Convention.'' (Warren Barker, Progression Magazine)
 
Listening to First Of The Year (5th video from the top) makes me think they should be here. They get good press on other prog sites. Mostly described as ''experimental folk... Folk in Opposition... avant-garde folk... indie folksters'' and their own label for themselves ''majestic junk folk'' so I guess Prog Folk is the obvious place for a full eval.

^ Thanks for bumping. Thumbs Up
 
It looks as though it will be moved to the Avant Team for their opinion.

Recently moved from Folk to Avant (as noted above) but it's not going to fit there either.

this is just normal prog.
as this category isnt available in PROG ARCHIVES, i would say its ECLECTIC.

i also had a chat with Daimon Waitkus and he said they are getting more rock into it at the moment.

Well, one thing everyone agree on. This IS Prog. So Eclectic it is.

I've listened again to All My Friends and while this group is hard to classify that doesn't make them Eclectic Prog Rock. I really can't hear any classic prog rock in their music. Imo they are some kind of experimental / avant-chamber / acoustic / quirky folk. The only genres I see them in are Avant Prog or Folk so the best I can do is ask the PF Team to reconsider them.

Maybe the best thing is to wait until the next one comes out. After all wowie just mentioned that he'd had a chat with one of the band members and they're apparently getting more into rock. Just a suggestion though, instead of ping ponging these guys back and forthSmile

Maybe the best thing is if people would actually take no for an answer.   
 
That said, as far as I'm concerned and as far as just about every other site I've looked at is concerned and as far as the band themselves are concerned (see my post dated 24th March), this is a folk outfit. The purpose of my most recent post above was to ask if the PF Team would take one final shot with this artist. My apologies to the PF Team if I'm wasting their time by asking them to reconsider, but I hoped this would give us a final decision, one way or the other, with no further need for ping-ponging.
 
And David, I'm afraid I already posted in the PF team thread earlier, a couple of hours before you commented here.

I don't want to be rude or anything. I can honestly receive a no, even if I don't agree with.

But I must say that after reviwing Active Heed's album (http://www.progarchives.com/album.asp?id=42688) I'm just astonished by what sometimes enter on PA with no difficult and what doesn't. Really.

And this obviously isn't the only case, but I'll not go on this.

The only way I could see this included in prog folk is if they were an act releasing albums back at the tail-end of the 60s, and if they'd had a serious impact on the scene and what was to come. They didn't though, because they're a new band. I agree entirely with Chris on this one. I don't hear any prog or rock for that matter. They might be a folk/chamber outfit with some experimental bits thrown in there, but I don't think they belong on this site. 
Also, a band can be over the moon marvellous and riveting without having any connotations to prog. I really like Bob Dylan for example, yet I resist the urge to suggest him for inclusion......and he was just about the most progressive artist for his time.

I agree, what about this progressive rock masterpiece

Diego, I have never known you to be rude and in any case my comment was not directed at you. Did you follow the link I added in my previous post?
