Ga'an-Prog Download of The Week

Although this was released in March of 2010 I was surprised to find this only had 18 downloads on the FMA site! Trip psych prog that allows you to float away, far away...

Ga’an hail from Chicago and hold up a warped mirror to classic prog, refracting its weirder elements. Fans of Popol Vuh, Goblin and perhaps Dead Can Dance will experience a familiarity, but Ga’an’s take on their exploratative sounds is uncanny enough to disrupt any feelings of nostalgia, giving them an affective- if not aesthetic- similarity to the liminal synth drones of Emeralds, Infinity Window and Onehtrix Point Never. They’re the first non-UK band to be released on Records on Ribs and one we’re ecstatically excited about. - Records on Rib
