Piano Piano's Ambitiously Proggy Rock

Posted by on Sat, Feb 1, 2014 at 9:57 AM

(Crocodile) Piano Piano? Not a name that inspires optimism—nor makes web searches particularly fruitful. Thankfully, the Seattle group's music overcomes those handicaps. Their baroque, elegant rock bears similarities to that of Explosions in the Sky, but Piano Piano mostly avoid the longueurs of that popular post-rock band. PP's four musicians excel at launching fluid, florid melodies into the night sky, sometimes in tranquil beauty, other times in artful turbulence. Their proggy ambition is damn refreshing in a world overrun with underachievers. With NGHTBLND and Slow Bird.

And here's all our recommended music events—tonight, tomorrow, this weekend, and beyond!
