dredg.

Anyone dig? They're like...progressive sort of, with concept albums. Their first album was a lot heavier, but they've gotten poppier with each release. A very interesting band with some wonderfully uplifting moments.

a song from each album:

Leitmotif
YouTube - Lechium - Dredg

El Cielo
YouTube - Dredg - Same ol' Road (Music Video)

Catch Without Arms
YouTube - Dredg - bug eyes

The Pariah, The Parrot, The Delusion
YouTube - Dredg - Information

The Pariah, The Parrot, The Delusion may just be my favourite album of 2009 so far. I've always loved Dredg's work, but I've never cared for any of their albums in full - however, this new one appeals to me very strongly as a complete album and it has no dud tracks in my opinion.

Never got the El Cielo hype; it remains my least favourite. Until The Pariah, etc. came along, Leitmotif was my favourite. Symbol Song, Penguins In The Desert, and Yatahaze fucking slay.

Leitmotif is indeed badass. Agree on Symbol Song, Penguins, and Yatahaze. I'd throw Lechium in there too.

El Cielo doesn't have as many outstanding songs individually, but I think it works really well as an album.

Catch Without Arms might actually be my favourite Dredg album, though I haven't listened to it all the way through in forever. But yeah, the latest one is pretty good. At first I was underwhelmed, but it's been growing on me a lot. Information, I Don't Know, and Cartoon Showroom are really fantastic. The rockier stuff doesn't rock as much as Leitmotif imo, but I think the album really shines with the poppier stuff.

I need to check this band out more. I've only heard one of their new songs, but I love it.
