I just discovered this band - thank you, Stefan Polzer! Cool

I am impressed. Yes, there are a few obvious reference points but they also add their own twist and take on the genre. All in all worth a listen if you like melodic inventive rock.

Anyone on here a fan?

A Sun of Your Own is getting huge amounts of listening time recently. Amazing track. Some amazing moments despite being very low-tech in places (and some awkward acoustic playing, but I can live with that).

Absolutely awesome band! There has already been a thread about them on the forum. The first album was more of a demo album I believe but the 2nd one, Blomljud is a big step up in quality. Superb songwriting and the most awesome multi harmonies in prog since Starcastle!!

Yep big fan here as well - the Men Of The Moon !!!

Blomljud especially and a novel thing to have a concept album about the interaction between men and flowers !!!

Trying to get the word out as they seem very low profile and I'm not even sure if they are still going.

Does anyone know if a 3rd album is in the offing ???

I believe they are a bunch of teenagers - the musicianship is scary and the harmonies are blinding - every member of that band has a fantastic voice !!!

Yup, it's called "Lover's End".

There's lots of updates on their Farcebook page.
Like this vid. And this is sounding fab. And a laptop keyboard solo.....
OK, OK. I'll stop gushing now.

Well, I missed them at Winter's End and never really got to check out this band, until now. OMG! This is so my kind of music! Absolutely stunning! Massive!

Check this one out from the new album (Lover's End):

"A Kid Called Panic"

In stitches reading the Moon Safari/Lover's End thread on the PE forum. All routine stuff, until old teaflax picks up on incorrect use of English lanquage in the lyrics.

"So, language and lyrics are unimportant to you. Fine, but to me it's like saying "Who cares that the drummer is constantly playing out of time when the rest of it is so good?" or "That slight taste of feces in the casserole doesn't matter, because the meat is just *perfect*"."

I played "A Kid Called Panic" on my show yesterday. Seemed to go over very well. Probably one of the better prog albums of the past year.

Another superb album from Moon Safari. Lots of reminders of Starcastle with the keyboard sounds and the huge harmonies. The songwriting is accessible with great melodies and some brilliant instrumental sections. Flower Kings and their various offshoots could learn a thing or two about consistency and quality control from Moon Safari, not a filler track on any of their three albums!
