Mixing progressive rock with power pop isn't easy and certainly doesn't sound like a workable combination. However, Brooklyn's Fang Island not only make it work, they do so with flair to spare. The band's recently issued sophomore effort on Sargeant House, Major somehow manages to bridge the gap between Pink Floyd and Big Star. Songs such as "Sisterly" and "Make Me" are instantly hummable, and at a Fang Island show, group sing-alongs are as commonplace as broken strings. In other words, I can't wait.
