Godspeed You Black Emperor - Allelelujah! Don't Bend! Ascend!
OK, I'll admit that I was Mr Sneering Cynical Music Snob when I heard that Godspeed were another album. Y'know, "ooh, another load of the same old endless arpeggios". I guess it's not their fault that their sound has launched umpteen thousand dull post rock imitators.
Friends were giving it good reports though so I checked out a youtube video or two. Sounded great. Totally remembered why I liked the band in the first place.
Been listening to it loads recently and it keeps throwing up new things. Oh, and it's a million miles away from generic post-rock blandness. Definitely worth getting, especially as Boomkat are charging just £3.95.
