DARTO: Hex: 12” EP

Nov 21, 2014

Four tracks of stoner jam-laden post-rock. The big sound thing that you envisage a post-rock band making is present and accounted for, and it gets kinda crazy and captivating at times. Haven’t listened too much in the genre since I saw Pelican live back in ‘08 or ‘09 and wished that I had a book with me because they were so boring, and it doesn’t seem like these folks bring much new to the table. This EP, while nice, won’t be turning me away from my Mogwai recordings the next time I have the slightest interest in hearing something along these lines. The record also came with a short story called Faith, which I will not be reading.
