The Bad Plus - Suspicious Activity? (2005)

My friend Annis (you can go to his blog on the right, Vital Transformation) showed me this band the other day and all i had to say was, "WOW". It's just a pianist, a bassist and a drummer but their sound is so complete and just really flows together. They play some really interesting combinations of progressive rock and jazz although the jazzy feel is definitely prominent in this album. They also have a bunch of videos on youtube that are really intense so check those out too.
  1. "Prehensile Dream" – 8:12
  2. "Anthem for the Earnest" – 6:38
  3. "Let Our Garden Grow" – 6:57
  4. "The Empire Strikes Backwards" – 5:38
  5. "Knows the Difference" – 6:58
  6. "Lost of Love" – 8:38
  7. "Rhinoceros Is My Profession" – 5:44
  8. "O.G. (Original Gentleman)" – 6:37
  9. "(Theme From) Chariots of Fire – 4:57
  10. "Forces" – 7:43

Wow. These guys have that great radiohead vibe. Very very good chilled out music.
