Sometimes my brother has a good taste in music, like this band he showed me called The Dear Hunter.
According to last.fm, The Dear Hunter is the full-time progressive rock project of Casey Crescenzo, formerly of post-hardcore band The Receiving End of Sirens. The band got its name from the lead character of the story that he wrote to go along with the music. The sound is unlike that of Casey’s former band, with musical roots deep-set in the progressive rock genre and utilizing a wider variety of instrumentation.
I think the music has a real neat, almost Anathallo-y sound to it. The albums are really neat being arranged as Act 1, 2, and three, and consisting of some pretty rad songs. You can listen to some of The Dear Hunter on Myspace.
