New musical discovery

I've heard a few mentions of a band called 'Pineapple Thief' at Porcupine Tree-related discussion groups. Initially, I though it was an in-joke nickname for P-Tree itself, but I gradually realised that it's a band in its own right, and that the mentions by P-Tree fans were unfailingly positive; someone cited the latest album, Variations On A Dream this morning as his album of the year. I had to follow up that lead. The band's website has audio samples and an online shop offering better prices than Amazon, with free delivery worldwide.

The music itself strikes me as being at the 'pop' end of contemporary prog (i.e. song-based progressive music), with a slight hint of Coldplay but more significantly, a feel combining Radiohead and c.2000 Porcupine Tree. The audio samples certainly led me to order the two most recent albums, anyway.
Give 'em a try.
