Prawn

This might be the best band in this vein of music I've heard in a while. It's like a blend between Circa Survive and Sunny Day Real Estate; they just have such a unique sound it's hard to describe them. Please check them out, you will NOT be dissapointed in the least.

www.myspace.com/prawnnj

Also, they put up a download to their second album (False Institutions) here and it's pretty darn amazing.

Posting so that that black dot will pop up next to this thread, so I remember to listen when I get home from work.

This is good. I like.

Listening to it more and more, I think that they're more like Explosions in the Sky than anything else. It's so good, either way.

Listening to em again. The fact that they gave that EP away for free makes them even more awesome in my eyes.

And yeah...not like Circa or Sunny Day really, I'm a tard.

I'm so pissed that I missed them at the beginning of this tour. Hopefully I can catch them before the summer ends.

Holy crap, I opened for this band a week ago in Lawrence, KS thanks to a close friend hooking me up with the gig. I thought they were amazing, sounds a lot like The Appleseed Cast (their from Lawrence too) check them out if you like Prawn's sound too.

Their performance was ace, definitely inspiring to watch. Some awesome post-rock to grind your tastebuds on.
