Blueneck - The Outpost album review

Album Review

The Bristol post-rockers add a layer of electro-pulse disquiet

It’s hard to know where post-rock ends and modern prog begins at the best of times, but as self-styled purveyors of “alternative/ambient”, Blueneck have side-stepped all looming pigeonholes, creating a unique sound-world. There are faint echoes of Anathema’s recent brush with electronica in the serene drift of Hypnos and Hive, but one of Blueneck’s greatest charms is their ability to hold back from delivering expected crescendos: instead, they deftly sustain underlying disquiet.
