Avant poppy post-rock anyone? Austin band Fiction is for real, mixing up-to-date beats with the warmth of a cello, the tinkling of the flute and wall to wall synths.
They have a five track EP called You Will Never that has enough ideas for a double album. With three of the four members sharing bass duties it's no wonder that it will take you a long time to figure out all the hoopla beneath the floating vocals - think Andy Partridge or Tom Verlaine.
