Meanwhile, Back In Communist Russia...
went up to first place on my Top Artists chart, yesterday (Saturday Sep 10).
They are a melancholic and experimental post-rock band from Oxford (UK), but for some reason they quit on 2004 and three of the band members started another band called Mesaplex
, which hasn't released anything yet, except 3 demo tracks.
I guess the most similarities Meanwhile... has with Arab Strap
, but Meanwhile... is more aggressive, intense and usually their songs build up to a powerful climax. I recommend it to everyone who likes weird post-rockish music. Few mp3's are available here
. (Blind Spot/Invisible Bend doesn't seem to work)
My Top Artists chart looks like this now:
185 - Meanwhile, Back In Communist Russia...
169 - M83
166 - Cyann and BenM83
is probably dropping, because I'm not listening to them much anymore. Cyann and Ben
is still one of my top favourites, but I have no idea how my charts are going to change in the near future, because I'm constantly listening to new bands.
