Post-rock album reviews round-up
Alex Lynham guides us through the peaks and valleys of essential post-rock with releases from Hammock, Gallops, Cauls, Vasudeva, Tricot, Andy Othling and Sleep Token
The last few months have been busy in post-rock land, with a number of new releases, as well as upcoming treats. Chief among the announcements is that of a new Hammock album, Mysterium (self-released). With more great records in their catalogue than many entire labels, it should be no surprise that this personal, intimate record about the loss of a close friend should prove so vital. Listen to lead track Things Of Beauty Burn, and check out their shoegaze classic Raising Your Voice… Trying To Stop An Echo and sweeping post-rock opus Departure Songs while you’re waiting for the new LP.
