porcupine tree

Over the last few years I have got more and more interested in a band called Porcupine Tree who are from the U.K. These guys are a very genuine, unique band and have finally begun to hit their stride as far as breaking out in the American markets with some commerical success. Although unique in their own way I would describe them as in the same vein as radiohead or muse, but with more hard rock sensibilities, long progressive compositions, all topped off with very harmonic pop-rock vocals. In particular I have a bias for their frontman Steven Wilson, who I see as an amazing singer/songwriter/guitarist/producer. Just about anything this guy touches turns to gold, all of his projects are very well done and well-worth investing time into.

Enough talk, go check them out. You won’t regret it.

  1. Do I see Rush, Dream Theater, and Porcupine Tree references all on the same blog? Whoever you are, your music taste ROCKS. And yes, Steven Wilson IS the shiz.
