Quiet explosions in the sky
on 7 June 2009
This is where post rock gets seriously interesting and creative. The band create a work of extraordinary dynamics, detail and ideas. There is a sense of confidence and complexity in the playing which guarantees repeated listening and exploration.
At the moment, for me, post-rock nails the sonic zeitgeist and these fellas are in the middle of the blitzkreig with Mogwai, Sigur Ros, Red Sparrowes, Malporosa, Do Make Say Think and have taken up the mantle laid down by such luminaries as Labradford, Tortoise and Boards of Canada as well as referencing Eno and Hannett.
The emotional undertow is powerful and liberating.
This is modern classical, post-modern pop, done by those who know their avant garde chops and their noisenik chums.
Fun for all the family.
Moods for moderns.
