Biography

Montreal-based Fifths Of Seven is a trio comprised of cellist Beckie Foon (A Silver Mt. Zion, Set Fire to Flames, Esmerine), mandolin-player Rachel Levine (Cakelk with Alexander St. Onge), and pianist Spencer Krug (Frog Eyes, Wolf Parade, Sunset Rubdown, Swan Lake). Spry From Bitter Anise Folds confirms the high degree of musicality of these artists — representatives of the Montreal scene which gathered around the anti-capitalist Constellation label (Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Fly Pan Am, Polmo Polpo, Black Ox Orkestar) — who love improvisation and experimentation as well as a live approach to music. Their debut album of pure beauty is centered around the unusual quality in tone of the instruments and the high development of simple melodies, which place Fifths of Seven somewhere between Erik Satie, folkloric Eastern European music and, of course, the Constellation “post-rock” galaxy.

    post-rock label is actually useful when you want to come across something as precious as this not quite serrendipitiously

    This music is as far from being post-rock as SilasCiaran's comment is from being intelligent and informed.

    Agree with you about the meaningless of "post-rock" adjective for this band BUT post-rock isn't that bad, seriously. Go listen :)

    @silasciaran & @jrdgc61: If you do not understand sth it doesn't mean it is meaningless. Most people do not understand quantum physics (including me) and it does not make it meaningless (most of all it does not mean that "it should not exist"). Listen to some post-rock and you'll find out...
