In the Name of Peace and Progress

by Klever

About four years ago, I came across the website of a (then completely unknown to me) band from St. Petersburg. Next thing I did was to download this album to my MP3 player and listen to it few times in a row. My, they are good. I’d say Клевер (“Clover”) are the best prog-rock outfit I heard since Godspeed You! Black Emperor. If they are still relatively unknown in the West, it is because — to quote Jordan Volz
the promotion coming out of Russia makes Japan look like MTV.
