Described by Pitchfork Media as “an indie-prog monolith, blending intense mathrock spazz-outs with dense, dreamy melodies”, Crime In Choir have created a name for themselves among the ranks of prog-revivalists.
Intent on reinvigorating and updating the genre for today’s discriminating, post-everything indie-rock listener, Crime In Choir’s 4th album, “Gift Givers”, expands on the complex interweaving of melody, composition and sound-scape heard on 2006’s “Trumpery Metier”. “Gift Givers” brings a complex suite of six songs that hearkens back to the golden age of prog while leaping infinitely forward in textures, composition and grace, making “Gift Givers” the penultimate progressive rock album that will forever be remembered.
“Gift Givers” was recorded by band member Matt Waters, mastered by Pete Lyman and will be released in early 2009 by Kill Shaman Records (U.S.) and Moorworks (Japan). “Gift Givers” is manufactured with 100% recycled paper eco-wallet sleeves and includes no plastic products.
