Below The Sea Les Arbres Despayseront Davantage

Following up their wonderful and overlooked release The Loss of Our Winter, the Quebec trio known as Below The Sea provides an amazing musical alternate universe to the post-post-rock sounds that are provided by likeminded peak-reaching musicians Montreal's Godspeed You Black Emperor! and Americans Labradford. Here, they combine the gliding, riding cymbal sounds of great acts such as Slowdive and the jazziness of Do Make Say Think and grind it through an electro-rhythmic vibe that no one else has attempted thus far. And in between all the post-rock Bolero-type moments lie some beautiful tracks of minimalist ambience, providing the perfect moments of relief before the trio takes you on another flight; another winner from a world class act.
