Inspired by listening to their really rather good new, tenth album, I thought I’d start a bit of a fan thread.
Post rock can be quite derided these days fairly or unfairly depending on your opinion. But for me this band can still hit all the right post rocky buttons. I first discovered them at the time of their 2005 album All Is Violent, All Is Bright. I had the CD on repeat in my car for weeks and proceeded to devour their previous albums. I saw them live at least once a year for the next 5 or 6 years, a lot of those times at the rightly esteemed Brudenell Social Club (bloody hell I miss live music!).
Not every release of these now ten albums are gems, I was disappointed with previous album Epitaph, and I always thought 2013’s Origins not up there with their best. But for me the other eight albums are, by and large, great and Ghost Tapes #10 is another bloody good addition to a bloody good back catalogue!
Good on you lads
