The Mojave 3 album is something of a lost gem, very special.

OK BB, So what is the first album, liking the second cheers

Hope you don't mind me answering for BB . It is   Mazzy Star  -- She hangs brightly    and it is fantastic as is everything Hope Sandoval has done .

Highly recommended by me  Smile

I Am Kloot - Let It All In

Just got the CD - had a few listens tonight and I really like it. But does it sound like Alex Turner of Arctic Monkeys?

That's been bugging me for days, as to who it reminded me of. There's a definite similarity

A bit of shameless self publicity, but I genuinely am listening to it!

Ooh that reminds me, finally completed ripping my CD collection recently, including the copy of Cohesion you sent me.

When I loaded it up into Plex it managed to scrape/download the artwork and band info from somewhere, which i thought pretty cool, especially considering it failed to find some of the artwork for the likes of the Stones and Floyd Cool

Described as classical poistambient noctural atmospheric neo-progressive folk world rock. I say if you like The Pineapple Thief, Porcupine Tree try this Norwegian band (lyrics in English)

If I've told you once I've told you a million times. Stop exaggerating.

 

Oh all right.  Is Grand Duke of all known audible frequencies more acceptable?  That gives a little leeway for unknown variables.

Haha! I thought I'd given all my copies (including my own!) away, but then I found one just before Christmas and listened to it for the first time in about 2 years....  Not bad, but feels odd there's only 2 of the 5 of us from that recording currently in the band.. Smile

Glad there are still copies out there being listened to and hopefully enjoyed.
