THIS MUSIC IS FOR FANS OF RADIOHEAD, SIGUR ROS, THE DOVES
This is a fantastic debut from a new Canadian band called, \'Ragni\', from the people responsible for albums by acts like The Dears, The High Dials, Tom Waits and Stars.
The music is a little like a soundtrack to a film. It begins with a string quartet piece that sounds like something out of the new Battlestar Galactica before moving into more traditional acoustic guitar, folk style music, akin to the soft sound of Sufjan Stevens. From there, the CD becomes more dense and moves into the realms of post-rock acts like Radiohead, Sigur Ros, Mogwai and Godspeed. Finally, the strange final movement is a smooth, ambient soundscape that lands somewhere between an experiment by Eno and a haunting melody sung by the late Jeff Buckley.
