TOTW: God Speed You! Black Emperor_ OUR SIDE HAS TO WIN (for D.H)

Post-rock legends Godspeed You! Black Emperor are back with a new album G_d’s Pee AT STATE’S END! It continues their now well established sound. Long instrumental pieces with several acts that trigger raw emotion in thier listeners.

The final track on the album OUR SIDE HAS TO WIN (for D.H) is something new for them. Almost sounding like a Requiem this mostly string led piece features a smattering of guitar and develops into a slow and positive, dear I say uplifitig chord progression at its conclusion. It results in a bitter sweet conclusion the the record that is well worth a listen to old fans and new alike.

TOTW: Godspeed You! Black Emperor_Sleep

One of the centerpieces of the Post rock movement, Godspeed You! Black Emperor create music that is slowly progressive. Tracks are never short, instead they build structures over time usually repeating melodys to build a sence of tension and dread untill they release it all with fast attacks from their fretboards and rhythm section.

Sleep is a good place to start, tell me what you think:
