Dear Chris and listener,
I enjoyed The Gallant Gentleman’s track. It wandered pleasantly for a while and then it built up its spectacular climax.
It reminded me of my first time I listened to Post Rock. The first song I ever stumbled upon from the genre, and as luck would have it by its better practitioners, was Nostalgia by Mono. Mono is a Post Rock band from Tokyo, Japan formed in 1999. They’ve released nine studio albums in the seventeen years they’ve been active, of which I would definitely recommend Hymn to the Immortal Wind (2009) and For My Parents (2012).
As most Post Rock songs, Nostalgia seems lost for a while. The musicians are searching in the dark for something that speaks back to them. They grasp a thin thread, and slowly they start weaving. The song builds up energy and tension as it takes you through the musicians’ psychedelic imaginations.
The link I’ve shared is a little on the quiet side, so I would suggest maxing out your volume controls. I would provide a better source, but this is truly them at their best, and well worth the risk of an accidental Skype message puncturing an ear drum.
I would recommend this song be listened to in a dark room with a slow heart rate, and an open mind.
