TRYSTERO: The Cold Machines: CDEP

Nov 17, 2011

These guys are doing the instrumental post-rock thing like Red Sparrowes or Explosions In The Sky. Only one of the six tracks goes over four minutes, and even that is a pretty modest six minutes, so this is definitely more succinct than the aforementioned bands. Things never get as balls-out crazy as the Don Caballero stuff I’ve heard, so this is probably not the second coming of technical math rock. There are a lot of pretty passages played very heavily with an occasional violin or sound effect dropping in to add to the proceedings. If you need some atmospheric music in your life, you could definitely do worse.
