THRILL JOCKEY

Regular price $39.00 Sale

There's something inherently non-anthemic about the type of music that's come to be known as "post-rock." In order for music to be considered anthemic, it has to work in big, sweeping gestures. Big, pounding rhythms, soaring melodies, powerful arrangements-- these are the things of American anthems. Up until now, most post-rock has featured none of these elements. The melodies-- when there are coherent melodies-- are usually sparse and minimalist, and far from hummable. Rhythms are complex and jerky, and difficult to tap out with only two feet. Vocals, which are rare, are generally languid; try to imagine Brian McMahan singing "The Star Spangled Banner" without lulling 10,000 grunting sports fans into a deep sleep. | Matt MeMay
