The Mercury Trees (Portland, OR):
If a space dragon got together with Sigur Ros' cousin, and they had a baby that liked to explore the emotional and cinematic dynamics of Stanley Kubrick's films while incredibly sleep deprived... then that baby might grow up to be a metaphor for the music of The Mercury Tree. This experimental Portland trio, formed in 2006, specialize in creative overuse of their effect pedals. Their latest material includes extensive live looping work, creating huge enveloping layers of sound. At best, they fuse the oddball rhythms and technicality of progressive music with a genuine sense of melody and emotion. Their newest album, Permutations, was released in March 2016.
