An unwillingness to conform
This Will Destroy You - Tunnel Blanket

Post rock is something of a pedigree mongrel in the world of contemporary music, but one that has risen in popularity in recent years, resulting in a spate of combos treading the voiceless boards. Here we have a Texan quartet with an unwillingness to conform.

Three guitars provoke anticipation of something heading towards metal, yet there are more moments of an ambient nature and some quite intricate passages. The arrangements are complex, yet melodious and there’s enough to create intrigue from outside the post rock world. If that’s not your bag, then this won’t convert you, but if intrigue you have; then check it out.
