Kind of Like: Adebisi Shank, Enemies, Te
Genres: Post-rock, Math Rock, Experimental
I've been eagerly awaiting for this album to pop up somewhere because it has been getting great reviews usually 8 or 9s out of 10. This is the second album from this Leeds based band, and they have once again traveled across the pond to our country to record with John Congleton in Texas. Why travel so far to work with this guy? Well, take a look at other bands he has worked on. Not a bad resume. This band is considered a post-rock band, but the record is not traditional post-rock in the least. So, if you have grown weary of bands like Explosions in the Sky but still have once appreciated post-rock, you probably will really enjoy this record. And if you don't like post-rock then you still may find a way to like this album.
