Echoes of Yul

As promised yesterday…

Actually, my playlist last night consisted of all the other bands mentioned in yesterdays post except Echoes of Yul. And yet, when I awoke this morning, it was they who were playing on my mental radio. Go figure.

All of their work is worth investigating, it really is. I’ve highlighted Tether because it was my introduction and is still my favourite.

Imagine, if you will, Demdike Stare with Horseback for a backing band and sunn o))) providing extra guitars. Because I’m not an expert in genres, forgive me if I say that Tether is the most post-dubstep of their work, i.e. it has the most trappings of electronic flourishes. Partly this is because there are a lot of remixes across the album (although the same flourishes can be found to a lesser extent on Cold Ground) yet it still flows really well.

And with my genre ignorance thus exposed once again, I’m outta here.
