A beautiful and moving release, the band sleepmakeswaves from Sydney gives us almost forty minutes of sweeping ambience intermingled with heavy guitars. ‘In Today Already Walks Tomorrow’ is beyond post-rock, beyond progressive. These Aussies have invented something all their own. The music presented here is sometimes quiet and introspective, sometimes loud, rowdy and in your face. If you like The Big Sleep, Three, or Explosions in the Sky, then you will love sleepmakeswaves.
From the Lost Children netlabel we have I AM THE ARCHITECT. Post rock, but with a pop edge to it. Lots of catchy melodic goodness on this solid half hour of music. IATA has a lush full sound, with many more instruments than you usually find in the standard post rock fare. Synths, piano, flute, strings, orchestral instruments adorn each track perfectly. They sound a bit like Muse, with no vox. These four fellows stand out in the world of post rock, so definitely give them a listen, then let them know what you thought on their myspace.
From the Lost Children netlabel comes Part Rocket with their release In Limine. Five tracks of chilled out post rock make an enjoyable half hour listening experience. Part Rocket likes to create huge builds, dischordant soundscapes and lots of ‘wall-of-sound’ type experiences.
Thanks to Marvin @ Free Albums Galore for pointing this release out.
