Biography

San Francisco quintet Crime In Choir are an instrumental progressive rock band, comparable to Faust, Goblin, Magma, Soft Machine, etc. Founded in 2000, Crime In Choir released their previous full-length releases on Frenetic Records (2004’s The Hoop) and Omnibus (2002’s self-titled debut), respectively. The band’s third full-length, Trumpery Metier, was recorded by Tim Green, and is their first release for GSL. Comprised of founding members of the original At The Drive-In (pianist Kenny Hopper and guitarist Jarrett Wrenn), as well as members of The Fucking Champs (drummer Tim Soete), Citay (synth player Jesse Reiner), and The Mass (saxophonist Matt Waters), Crim In Choir have an impressive pedigree and an even more impressive sound. Described by Pitchfork Media

as “an indie-prog monolith, blending intense mathrock spazz-outs with dense, dreamy melodies”, Crime In Choir have created a name for themselves among the ranks of prog-revivalists. Intent on reinvigorating and updating the genre for today’s discriminating, post-everything indie-rock listener, Crime In Choir’s Trumpery Metier shows every indication of being a landmark recording of the early 21st. century. -Terrorbird Media
