RECORD OF THE WEEK
Argentinian instrumental post-rock band, La Gran Perdida de Energia have just released their debut s/t album on Fluttery Records. You know, Fluttery seem to have a knack of releasing great albums. This album is no exception, I instantly liked this album because it wasn’t straightforward and melodic like a lot of post-rock albums are. There is a touch of psychedelia/prog throughout the album, the opening track ‘El Mes Del Viento’ is testament to that and sets the tone for the rest of the album. ‘Balsa’ starts melodic then has a lull in the middle of the song, its a cleverly crafted song and is a real stand out track for me. But I would have to say that I found this album a breath of fresh air and a really interesting listen. There are a lot of musical passages that have intricacies in sound that are missing on so many albums in this genre. These guys seem to have captured the spirit of post-rock with this release. It is good to know that this genre is alive and well in Beunos Aires.
Go check it out, your ears will love it.
