Editorial Reviews

The title of their debut comes from its running time. It's an epic record that showcases the talent, range, and ambition of this young group, taking in elements of various genres and making them their own. Sian Alice Group's more classical inclinations show their willingness to tread their own path. Comparisons can be made to Arthur Russell, Angelo Badalamenti, and Steve Reich. The album features contributions from Douglas Hart (Jesus & Mary Chain), John Coxon (Spiritualized, Spring Heel Jack), and Brian DeGraw (Gang Gang Dance). "Beautiful, lush, dreamy and ethereal, but there's a dark, rainy spookiness at its core that sets it apart from so many experimental groups out there" - Vice. 16 tracks. Social Registry Records. 2008.

5.0 out of 5 stars mindblowing, unique, and underrated group! September 22, 2008
Format:Audio CD
This British group is pretty amazing and I am shocked that I am the first person to review this??? That is surprising: Pitchfork gave this album a good review and they are currently touring with A Place To Bury Strangers?

There a few aspects of this band that make them stand out. First: the ethereal, beautiful vocals of lead singer Sian Alice Ahern (no relation to the former Irish PM). Second: the wide range of sounds and influences here and the way in which they are coherently and carefully melded into a unique variety of indie rock that varies from wall of sound to complete sparseness.

Pitchfork compared them to 90s bands like Stereolab, Laika, Th' Faith Healers, and Pram. These are fair comparisons, especially a genre-bending band like Stereolab. I would also say they is a fair bit of influence from PJ Harvey, Fairport Convention, Slowdive, Pentangle, My Bloody Valentine, etc.

The songs are influenced by jazz, krautrock, shoegaze, post-punk, etc, etc. Not sure what else to say, just go listen to the songs on the myspace and give 'em a shot!!!
