One of the most adventurous bands of its kind, Beequeen slowly moved on from drones and abstraction to more traditional songs. Their early releases are notoriously hard to find and there's a reason - its done extremely well and still holds well together, years after it was released.
Just like another Netherlands band De Fabriek, they have yet to recieve credit for all the things that they done for experimental/ambient/noise scene, but if excellent reviews in Pitchfork are any indication, they're on their way to fame.
